Obama seeks congressional OK for strike WASHINGTON (AP) — Short on support at home and allies abroad, President Barack Obama unexpectedly stepped back from a missile attack against Syria on Saturday and instead asked Congress to support a strike punishing Bashar Assad’s regime for the alleged use of chemical weapons. With Navy ships on standby in the Mediterranean Sea ready to launch their cruise missiles, Obama said he had decided the United States should take military action and that he believes that as commander in chief, he has “the authority to carry out this military action without specific congressional authorization.” At the same time, he said, “I know that the country will be stronger if we take this course and our actions will be even more ef fective.” His remarks were televised live in the United States as well as on Syrian state television with translation. Congress is scheduled to return from a summer vacation on Sept. 9, and in anticipation of the coming debate, Obama challenged lawmakers to consider “what message will we send if a dictator can gas hundreds of children to death in plain sight and pay no price.” The president didn’t say so, but his strategy carries enormous risks to his and

the nation’s credibility, which the administration has argued forcefully is on the line in Syria. Obama long ago said the use of chemical weapons was a “red line” that Assad would not be allowed to cross with impunity. Nor would the White House say what options would still be open to the president if he fails to win the backing of the House and Senate for the military measures he has threatened. Only this week, British Prime Minister David Cameron suf fered a humiliating defeat when the House of Commons refused to support his call for military action against Syria. Halfway around the world, Syrians awoke Saturday to state television broadcasts of tanks, planes4 and other weapons of war, and troops training, all to a soundtrack of martial music. Assad’s gover nment blames rebels in the Aug. 21 attack, and has threatened retaliation if it is attacked. Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying he was appealing to a Nobel Peace laureate rather than to a president, urged Obama to reconsider. A group that monitors casualties in the long Syrian civil war challenged the United States to substan-

Settlements reached in New Bay Bridge set to open soon wolf release program

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Environmentalists have reached settlements with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that will allow for direct releases of captive wolves into New Mexico as part of the federal government’s efforts to re-establish the species in the Southwest. The agreements also call for the agency to drop plans for capturing any wolves that enter New Mexico or Arizona from Mexico. The agency is also proposing expanding the area where wolves are allowed to establish territories. “These agreements should breathe new life into the struggling Mexican wolf recovery program and expand the wolf’s habitat here,” Michael Robinson of the Center for

Biological Diversity, an environmental group that has been critical of wolf management. The agency first unveiled a proposal in June that called for giving Mexican gray wolves more room to roam in New Mexico and Arizona. Independent scientists and environmentalists have been pushing for more room and for releases of captive wolves in New Mexico for years, saying such actions would bolster the success of the recovery effort. But on Friday, U.S. Rep. Steve Pearce, R-N.M., criticized the proposed expansion of the program. He said millions of dollars have been spent over the last decade and the wolf

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — When traffic flows across a new stretch of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge for the first time, it will do so nearly a quartercentury after a deadly earthquake during the 1989 World Series collapsed two 50-foot sections of the old structure. The 6.9-magnitude Loma Prieta quake hit just as millions tuned in to watch Game 3 of the “Bay Bridge World Series” between the Oakland Athletics and San Francisco Giants, killing 63 people and causing up to $10 billion in damage. The Bay Bridge failure, one of the temblor’s most memorable images, prompted one of the costliest public works projects in state history. The $6.4 billion project finally draws to a close after decades of political bickering, engineering challenges and billions in cost overruns. The

new easter n part of the span should be ready to open as scheduled by 5 a.m. Tuesday after being closed for five days while crews put on the finishing touches, transportation officials said Saturday. The years of past delays magnified public safety concerns over the need for a permanent solution as the original, seismically unsafe bridge, which opened during the administration of President Franklin Roosevelt, was patched up and continued operating. Highlighting the decades of complications, the scheduled opening of the reworked bridge was in jeopardy again this year after crews discovered dozens of defective rods used to anchor the roadway to important earthquake safety structures. The bridge will open with a temporary fix for these broken

rods while the permanent repair, expected to be completed in December, is being installed. Issues with the rods and myriad delays have left many commuters with a feeling of trepidation about the bridge, even though state officials say it’s one of the safest in the world. The self-anchored suspension bridge with a looming, single white tower was designed to endure 150 years and withstand the strongest earthquake estimated by seismologists to occur at the site over a 1,500-year period. Steve Heminger, chairman of the Toll Bridge Program Oversight Committee, the project’s watchdog, said the span is orders of magnitude safer than the current crossing. “Some bridges in Califor-

NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — Ten thousand decisions go into creating a big, boisterous parade. No one knows that better than Robin Buchanan, who for years has juggled the lineup at the Labor Day parade that has jubilantly closed out every Newtown summer for more than five decades. But never before had this happened: Calls and emails from regulars, folks who always marched, concerned about the most basic decision of all. “Are you going to have a parade,” they asked her, “this year?” This year. Meaning: After the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School, after the eulogies for 20 first-graders and six educators, amid the drumbeat of news stories across the country and hushed conversations around town, all adding up — still — to incomprehen-

sion. A parade, this year? On an icy evening back in January, barely a month after the shootings, a small group met with sad hugs to confront that question. It’s always been a daunting task for the Labor Day Parade Committee to map out the two-hour extravaganza — to arrange the vintage warplane flyovers or get the stagecoach that’s pulled by four matched horses or the ballfield-size American flag, or whatever, to make sure of security and to hash out ways to pay the bills. But this time, the committee members — two of whom serve out of devotion even though they’re divorced from each other — sat hollow-eyed under the fluorescent lights of a bank conference room. Outside, handmade memorials still fluttered on lampposts. The funerals were still raw

memories. How could you focus on a parade? Who would be the grand marshal, a happy honor normally but surely a heavy burden this time around? What would the theme be? Could it be anything but a memorial? But if so, what kind of parade is that? “How’s everybody doing?” someone asked. There were tears as they went around the table, answering. It’s a tight group, and this was the first time they’d been together since “the incident.” Yet they knew that planning a parade is a long process. And they sensed that, somehow, this year it could be one piece of the enormous task facing the shattered town and many beyond it, of finding ways to move forward through

Los Alamos clerk to make gay marriage ruling Tuesday

LOS ALAMOS (AP) — A clerk in a New Mexico county ordered to start granting marriage licenses to same-sex couples or appear in court says she will make a decision Tuesday. The Los Alamos Monitor reports that Los Alamos County Clerk Sharon Stover will decide by then whether to abide by the judge’s order or seek to stop it. A judge on Thursday ordered Stover to start granting same-sex marriage licenses or to appear in court next week to explain why that shouldn’t happen. Stover says she has not had enough time yet to review the documentation officials received with the


county attorney. Los Alamos County would be the seventh New Mexico county to issue such licenses since Dona Ana County began two weeks ago.

Police: Helicopter crashes, 3 dead

TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES (AP) — Authorities say three people, including a 78-year -old, have been killed from a helicopter near Truth or Consequences. New Mexico State Police Emmanuel Gutierrez says state troopers dispatched to Highway 187 after receiving reports of the crash Saturday afternoon in Sierra County. Authorities say 78-yearold Duane Zietlow, of Elephant Butte; 61-year-old William Brownfield, of Caballo; and 34-year-old pilot Ebenezer Priebe, of Tucson, Ariz., died in the crash. It was not immediately know what caused the helicopter to go down. The cause of this crash is being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board.

Officials: Bernalillo County jail population low

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Bernalillo County officials say the county’s inmate population is now at its smallest since the jail opened about a decade ago. County spokeswoman Nataura Powdrell told the Albuquerque Journal on Friday that the jail had around 1,990 inmates — well below its design capacity of 2,236.

Whatever Congress ultimately decides, the developments marked a stunning turn.

France is Obama’s only major foreign ally to date for a strike, public polling shows support is lukewarm in the United States, and dozens of lawmakers in both parties have signed a letter urging Obama not to act without their backing. Outside the gates of the White House, the chants of protesters could be heard as the president stepped to a podium set up in the Rose Garden. Had he gone ahead with a military strike, Obama would have become the first U.S. leader in three decades to attack a foreign nation without mustering broad international support or acting in direct defense of Americans. Not since 1983, when President Ronald Reagan ordered an invasion of the Caribbean island of Grenada, has the U.S. been so alone in pursuing major lethal military action beyond a few attacks responding to strikes or threats against its citizens. By day’s end Saturday, the White House had sent Congress a draft of a resolution, crafted by the White House, to authorize Obama to use military force.

WASHINGTON (AP) — When it comes to Syria, the Obama administration is sure about one thing: President Bashar Assad’s government must be punished after allegedly using deadly chemical weapons, possibly including sarin gas, to kill hundreds of Syrians. The U.S. and allies accuse Assad of crossing a line that President Barack Obama said would have “enormous consequences.” That’s now expected to trigger a military strike, limited in time and scope, with the goal of downgrading and weakening Assad but not toppling him or destroying his forces. The details of how and when the U.S. military and allied forces might attack are under debate but would be based on complex plans developed and repeatedly reworked over time by the Pentagon. They could further be complicated by Obama’s decision to seek authorization from Congress for the use of force. A look at what’s known and what’s unclear about how it might unfold. ——— WHO DECIDES The order for the strike would come from Obama, delivered to Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. The operation probably would fall under the purview of U.S. Central Command, headed by Army Gen. Lloyd Austin. The more immediate commander probably would be Adm. Bruce Clingan, who heads U.S. naval forces in Europe.

U.S. commanders would communicate and coordinate with military officers from other nations involved in the fight, such as France. ——— WHO LAUNCHES WHAT Five U.S. Navy destroyers — the USS Gravely, USS Mahan, USS Barry, the USS Stout and USS Ramage — are in the eastern Mediterranean Sea waiting for the order to launch. And the USS San Antonio, an amphibious assault ship has now joined them. The USS San Antonio, which is carrying helicopters and Marines, has no cruise missiles, so it is not expected to participate in the attack. Instead, the ship’s long-planned transit across the Mediterranean was interrupted so that it could remain in the area to help if needed. The destroyers are armed with dozens of Tomahawk cruise missiles, which have a range of about 1,000 nautical miles and are used for deep, precise targeting. Each one is about 20 feet long and less than two feet in diameter and carries a 1,000 pound warhead. The missiles fly at low altitudes, and their range allows the ships to sit far off the coast, out of range of any potential response by the Syrian government. Some ships have cameras that can provide battle damage assessments. The Navy also now has two aircraft carriers in the Arabian Sea that are loaded with fighter jets. The USS T ruman arrived in the region to take the place of the USS Nimitz, which was

supposed to head home. But the Navy ordered the Nimitz to stay for now. U.S. officials described the decision as prudent planning and said it doesn’t suggest the Nimitz would play a role in any possible strikes in Syria. With Britain on the sidelines, France has said it is preparing for military action against Syria. French President Francois Hollande does not need parliamentary approval to launch a military operation that lasts less than four months. French military officials confir med the frigate Chevalier Paul, which specializes in anti-missile capabilities, as well as the hulking transport ship Dixmude, had set off Thursday from the Mediterranean port of Toulon as part of normal training and operational preparations — but denied any link to possible Syria operations. France also has a dozen cruise missile-capable fighter aircraft at military bases in the United Arab Emirates and the Horn of Africa nation of Djibouti, as well as fighters that could launch from air bases in the French island of Corsica or western France. ——— WHAT ABOUT TROOPS, FIGHTER JETS AND BOMBERS? Obama has ruled out putting troops on the ground in Syria, and because of Assad’s extensive air defense systems, of ficials believe it is too risky, at least initially, to deploy fighter aircraft or even low-flying drones that

“I’m not here to suggest that there weren’t construction challenges along the way, but they have been dealt with.” In the decades since t he ear th qu a ke , t h e bridge replacement project overcame many hurdles. A n in it i al sc ie nt ifi c recommendation following Loma Prieta called for retrofitting the current span, not replacing

it . A N a ti on al S cie nce Foundation team that studied damage to the bridge said in 1992 that the current eastern portion should be retrofitted for an estimated cost of $230 million. But in 1996, the Califo r n i a Dep a rt m e nt o f Transportation’s Seismic A d vi so ry B oa r d d i sagreed with those findings, saying the cost of replacing the old bridge

wou l d b e c o mp ar ab le with retrofitting it. At that time, Caltrans proposed building a simple concrete causeway — an elevated freeway — at a cost comparable to a retrofit. But Bay Area leaders blasted that design as too vanilla, saying the area deserved a span that would complement the grandeur of the Golden Gate.

Then, with a siren’s whoop and the rattle of snare drums, it starts.

could be shot down. While less likely, the U.S. could deploy fighter jets or bombers as the operation continues, particularly if the Assad regime begins to take retaliatory actions and manned aircraft are needed in order to strike specific, critical targets. Obama has rejected trying to impose a “no-fly” zone over the country. Military leaders have said that creating one would be risky and expensive. ——— WHAT MIGHT THEY TARGET? U.S. of ficials say any operation must have clear goals that can guide decisions on what the military must strike. Dempsey has told Congress that lethal force would be used “to strike targets that enable the regime to conduct military operations, proliferate advanced weapons and defend itself.” At a minimum, Western forces are expected to strike targets that symbolize Assad’s military and political might: military and national police headquarters, including the Defense Ministry; the Syrian military’s general staff; and the four -brigade Republican Guard that is in charge of protecting Damascus, Assad’s seat of power. Assad’s ruling Baath Party headquarters could be targeted, too. U.S. of ficials also are considering attacking military command centers and vital forces, communications hubs and weapons caches, including ballistic missile batteries.

So this was the parade that marched for five decades, lighting up the town, right up through Labor Day 2012, three months before the world first heard of Newtown.

Syria conflict: once more into the snake pit A4 Sunday, September 1, 2013

“Oh, when will they ever learn? Oh, when will they ever learn?” — Peter, Paul and Mary By the time you read this, U.S. missiles and bombs may be falling on Syria. Why? Syria hasn’t attacked us. It does not pose a security threat to the United States. These were arguments made against the Bush administration’s intervention in Iraq by some who now urge us to make war on Syria. Secretary of State John Kerry, who as a senator was for the funding of U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, before he was against it, says the United States is certain that Syrian President Bashar alAssad has used chemical weapons on his own people, thus crossing a “red line” established by President Obama. Never mind there were similar reports in June that alAssad had used chemical weapons. This time it means war! Weren’t we told of the “certainty” that Saddam




Hussein had chemical weapons? Have we learned nothing? The future of Iraq is in doubt after a huge American investment of lives and money. Ditto Afghanistan. After U.S. help in toppling Moammar Gadhafi, Libya is anything but stable. Egypt is in turmoil after the Obama administration backed its Muslim Brotherhood-controlled government, whose leader and elected president, Mohamed Morsi, has been ousted by the military. What makes anyone think bombing Damascus is going to bring positive change? President Obama has not asked

Roswell Daily Record

Congress for permission to attack Syria, as President Bush did before attacking Iraq. He hasn’t gone to the feckless United Nations, because Russia and China have announced they will veto any resolution authorizing military force. The president doesn’t appear to have established anything like a “coalition of the willing,” as President Bush did with Iraq. Britain is with us, as usual, and France has pledged support, but what about the Arab World? The Saudis may be quietly helping, but that appears to be about it. What’s the endgame? If by some miracle al-Assad and his leadership are hit by a missile, how do we prevent al-Qaida, present in Syria, from seizing power? There is a secular faction in Syria, but given the strength of Islamic fundamentalism throughout the region it is doubtful they will play a role. Misjudging the Middle East has been a bipartisan experience.

Hillary Clinton displayed a shocking lack of judgment when she said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” two years ago: “Many of the members of Congress of both parties who have gone to Syria in recent months have said they believe (al-Assad’s) a reformer,” meaning I suppose he might be better than his father, who killed an estimated 25,000 of his fellow countrymen when his power was challenged. Two days later Secretary Clinton attempted to walk back her comment, saying she was not speaking for herself or the Obama administration. In 2007, Rep. Nancy Pelosi visited Syria against the wishes of the Bush administration. She said, “The road to Damascus is a road to peace.” That “road” appears to have developed a giant sinkhole. If the only reason for U.S. intervention in Syria is humanitarian, where is the constitutional justification for that? There are many other inhumanities throughout the

world. Congo is one. As Jeffrey Gettleman noted last December in The New York Times: “Congo has become a never-ending nightmare, one of the bloodiest conflicts since World War II, with more than 5 million dead.” We’re not intervening there. A Reuters/Ipsos poll has found that just 9 percent of American respondents favor U.S. military intervention in Syria. Iran has threatened to strike Israel if the United States attacks Syria. There is grave danger, including possible terrorism, if we attack Syria. When will we ever learn? (Write to Cal Thomas at: Tribune Media Services, 2225 Kenmore Ave., Suite 114, Buffalo, N.Y. 14207.

Countdown in Damascus

The clock is ticking away as the United Nations inspectors try to find traces of chemical agents. The fear is that they may have been dissipated. But as far as the world body chief is concerned, he is already judgmental. In a brief media talk in Seoul, UN SecretaryGeneral Ban Ki-moon said that the use of chemical weapons is a crime against humanity and must be punished. The movement on the high seas, nonetheless, suggests that Washington is gearing up to take up the role of punisher, and seems to have been emboldened with the support of France, Britain and Turkey. Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, while castigating the regime in Damascus, went on to say that Ankara would support military action against it, whether it is backed by the UN or not. So is the stance of Britain, which believes that no more tolerance should be shown toward the Baath Party in Syria. This inevitably sets the stage for a military intervention, and like the case of Iraq it is closely followed on a failed diplomatic track. Whatever may be the findings of the inspectors visiting the ill-fated areas, it should be kept in mind that no effort should be made to jump the gun. The UN and the world powers have already blundered in the case of Iraq and Afghanistan, where their trigger happiness landed the whole world in a renewed security phobia and recession. The culprits responsible for using the toxic agents should be netted and punished in a way that doesn’t come to bring misery to more in the war-torn country. Guest Editorial The Khaleej Times, Dubai

Session should not be disrupted

The ongoing partisan standoff over the alleged meddling of the National Intelligence Service in the December presidential election is likely to continue into September, disrupting the imminent regular session of the National Assembly. Under the law, the assembly is required to start its 100-day regular session today. But a parliamentary paralysis appears to be inevitable as the rival camps are unable to find common ground on handling the thorny issue. Political gridlock deepened after President Park Geun-hye made it clear Monday that she had no intention of accommodating the demands of the main opposition Democratic Party. The opposition party demands that Park bring to light the truth about the allegations that the spy agency staged an online smear campaign against the DP presidential candidate. It also demands that Park apologize for the whole affair and hold a one-on-one meeting with DP leader Kim Han-gil to discuss NIS reform. Turning down Kim’s call for a tete-a-tete, Park renewed her offer for a five-way meeting, which would include the heads and floor leaders of both the opposition party and the ruling Saenuri Party. Park avoids an exclusive meeting with the DP leader because she fears it will be dominated by the NIS issue. She insists on a meeting where the floor leaders participate because she needs their cooperation in pushing reform bills through the National Assembly. In response to Park’s offer, DP leader Kim made a counterproposal. He suggested that Park meet with him first to discuss the NIS allegations and then hold a broader meeting to discuss bills related with people’s livelihoods. Kim gave Park until Wednesday to respond to his proposal, but there is little chance of Park accepting it. In fact, Kim himself did not put much hope on it. Park urges the opposition party to stop futile political one-upmanship and focus on issues related to people’s well-being. Yet it is her intransigence that is keeping the party away from the National Assembly. We do not question Park’s integrity when she claims she had no prior knowledge of the NIS’ alleged wrongdoing. But this does not necessarily mean that she can ignore the opposition party’s demands that the truth be established. DP leader Kim said previously that he would meet with Park regardless of the dialogue format. He should stick to his word. Guest Editorial The Korea Herald, Seoul, South Korea

The content of character of today’s youth

The singer Billy Ray Cyrus was supposed to be interviewed on television last week, but he canceled. And who could blame him? His daughter, Miley, embarrassed herself and her family on worldwide TV. Her narcissism on full display, the 20-year -old pop star simulated sexual activity with an older male singer while singing some kind of suggestive song. With millions of young people watching, the scene was as degrading as it was unnecessary. As her father, Mr. Cyrus should be mortified by Miley’s behavior. He’s made no direct


DEAR DOCTOR K: This year I’m suffering from seasonal allergies for the first time. What medications will make allergy season more bearable?

DEAR READER: Sneezing; itchy, runny, stuffy nose; red, itchy, watery eyes; sore throat. Hay fever can cause great misery. If misery loves company, you’ll be pleased to know that I and millions of other people suffer from hay fever. Luckily, many medications can help treat its symptoms.

A background check on their parents finds they are largely irresponsible and apathetic. One mother is even in prison. In Spokane, Wash., two 16year -old boys have been charged with beating a World War II veteran to death. The father of one of the accused killers told the press he does not understand how this could have happened. Then he admits he hadn’t talked with the boy in weeks and that his

grandmother essentially was raising him. There is no question that American society is becoming increasingly callous and coarse, and part of the reason is that derelict moms and dads refuse to set boundaries for their children.

One thing a lot of my patients don’t know is that the older antihistamines are just as potent in relieving allergy symptoms as the newer ones. So if the older antihistamines don’t make you drowsy, there’s no reason to use the newer ones. If an older antihistamine makes you somewhat drowsy, taking it at bedtime, and taking a newer antihistamine in the mor ning, can give you relief from allergy symptoms — along with a good night’s sleep. Work with your doctor to find the antihistamine that best relieves your symptoms with the fewest side effects. Corticosteroid nasal sprays

are probably the most effective treatment for hay fever. Examples include beclomethasone (Beconase), budesonide (Nasonex) and fluticasone (Flonase). They work best if you start using them a week or two before an expected rise in pollen counts. Montelukast (Singulair) is a leukotriene receptor antagonist. This drug decreases the allergic response in a different way than other medications. For some people, this medicine works best. If steroid sprays, montelukast and antihistamines fail, your doctor may recommend allergy shots (immunotherapy). You will get

Reminiscing about the good old days OPINION II/NATION

Roswell Daily Record

While relaxing on a quiet family weekend in the mountains, I found myself reminiscing about the world that I spent my youth in. Then I got to thinking about my children and the world that they are living in today. I realized that my children are missing out on life as I enjoyed it growing up. Things that I looked forwar d to, my children don’t even know existed. My children are living each year of their life three decades behind mine. Things sure have changed in just one generation. Those were the days. As a child, when we heard the music playing through our neighborhood, we would chase down the ice cr eam truck to buy a special treat. We used to park our station wagon backward at the drive-in theater and watch a double feature wrapped in blankets in the cold night a i r, e a t i n g s n a c k s t h a t w e brought from home. Fun would be saving our allowance for weeks in a piggy bank then going to the corner drugstore to buy a new toy for 50 cents. At family gatherings we would work together taking turns hand cranking the homemade ice cream maker and, having all helped, it tasted sweeter. We traveled across the country on Route 66 in our new Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser station wagon with tinted windows in the roof.

that the second bounce would always be the highest. We could buy a matchbox car and get change back from a dollar. We would pack full the pouch on the front of our Stingray bikes and throw newspapers onto customers’ porches. We would then go door to door without fear to collect the monthly subscription fees. We bought soft drinks in bottles and saved the bottles so that we could get back the dime deposit. We would walk a half mile to the Saturday matinee movie and sit in the front row. We w o u l d s t o p t o p i c k u p a penny on the ground. The biggest meal of the week was the Sunday dinner that mom put in the oven in the morning before we left for church. We walked our neighborhood on Halloween receiving candy from people whose names we knew and not worrying about anything that was put in our bag, wrapped or unwrapped. Eating out was a special treat and was the exception, not the rule. We spent our fr ee time outdoors playing games like “kick the can” and “hide and seek.” We listened to records that would turn at 33 or 45 rotations per minute as we sang to songs by the Beatles and the Monkees. Saturday mornings were TV mornings with Bugs Bunny and Wile E.



We would gather together as a family and watch Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color while we ate popcorn and sandwiche s . We w o u l d s h a r e a b o x o f candy cigarettes. I would pick up an Archie’s comic or a MAD magazine while my mother was shopping. We would spend hours trying to get the Slinky to go all the way down the stairway. After playing hard outside we would grab a cold glass of water and enjoy watching “fizzies” bubble in a drink that was more fun to watch than to drink. All of my friend’s moms drove us around in station wagons. We would buy a pack of baseball cards for a dime, chew the stick of bubble gum, and with the help of a clothespin we would use the cards to make our bikes sound like motorcycles. We would get frustrated when we couldn’t find the roller skate key.

We had to be careful which direction we bounced our “superball” because we knew

Coyote trying to catch the Roadrunner. We didn’t have to worry about what movies were rated; the use of a single word such as “damn” caused a stir. We m a d e i c e c u b e s i n m e t a l trays. We could get a burger for a quarter at McDonalds back when their signs still counted the number of burgers they had served. A treat would be those wax bottle shaped candies with colored sugar water inside them. Church potluck dinners and tent revivals were regular happenings. Our family would gather each evening and share dinner with dad at one end of the table, mom at the other, and us kids lining both sides. We would plan our week around a showing on TV of “The Wizard of Oz.” or “The Sound of Music.” We all wore PF Flyers so we could run faster and jump higher. We would pour over the S&H Green Stamp catalogue to find something to buy that everyone could agree on. Our telephone numbers started with letter prefixes. We all want a better world for our children than we had when we were their age. I wonder if this is possible. Technology has “advanced” society. Or has it? Today our children expect to be entertained by 100s of television stations, countless video games, computers and the


Internet. We are able to give our children more yet they often appreciate it less. What used to be privileges for us as children now are seen as rights. Are we teaching our children proper values in today’s different world? And what will the world be like for our children’s children 30 years from now? My challenge to you today is to take time to reminisce. Appreciate the things that you had growing up. And pass down to the next generations what your world was like. Sit at the family dinner table or in front of a warm fire and share with your children or your grandchildren what your world was like when you were a child. Better yet, videotape yourself telling your memories. Today’s youth can then pass your experience on to the generation after theirs. I think that I will go kick of f my shoes and lay down in a hammock and reminisce some mor e. Yes, those were the good old days. Just some thoughts ...

Park City ski area served with eviction notice over lease dispute

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A lease dispute between two Park City ski resorts has escalated with one resort serving an eviction notice on the other, the rivals said Thursday. Park City Mountain Resort is supposed to vacate its ski area — and leave the chair lifts and lodges behind — by Monday, but says it’s not going anywhere. The eviction notice was served Wednesday by a subsidiary of resort opera-


tor Talisker Corp., which owns much of the land at Park City Mountain Resort. Talisker operated the nearby Canyons ski area until recently, when it sold the operation to Vail Resorts Inc., a Coloradobased company that is continuing the fight with Park City Mountain Resort. An attorney for Talisker, John Lund, told The Associated Press that nobody will try to evict Park City Mountain Resort by force Monday, and that the evic-

ting services. This is a fool’s errand. The government cannot overcome bad parenting. What our leaders can do is publicly condemn irresponsible parental behavior in vivid terms.

When was the last time you heard a powerful politician do that? The truth is, the powers that be are mostly afraid to mention the collapse of the traditional family, because secular -progressives attack any judgmental behavior on the part of a politician. According to the secular left, unless a public person is a saint, he or she has no right to cast aspersions on any parental situation.

regular injections of small doses of the allergen causing your symptoms. The idea is that over time, your immune system will become less sensitive to that allergen. You can also take steps to prevent symptoms in the first place. Reduce your exposure to the airborne pollens and molds that trigger your allergies: — Stay indoors as much as possible when pollen counts are high (before 10 a.m. and after sunset). — Keep windows closed, especially

tion notice is the first step in a lengthy process. An employee of Vail Resorts served the eviction order on behalf of Talisker Land Holdings LLC. Separately, Vail Resorts said it wasn’t trying to immediately shut down Park City Mountain Resort but was “concerned with the behavior” of the tenant. Lawyers for Talisker say they recently discovered that Park City Mountain Resort backdated a letter claiming it was renewing

its lease, even though the time for renewing had long passed. It filed objections in court to the “deception,” and a judge set a hearing for Sept. 6. Talisker says Park City Mountain Resort failed to renew a long-term lease by a deadline March 1, 2011, waited months for the lease to expire, then sent a letter May 2, 2011, backdated by two days that claimed to renew the lease the day it expired, on April 30, 2011.

Sociologists well understand that chaos at home causes violent behavior, educational failure and social alienation among children. Yet, many of us in America stay far, far away from this topic. That in and of itself is a national scandal. Bad parenting is gravely harming this nation. Let’s get that out in the open. And the campaign should begin with the president of the United States.

Now Talisker Land Holdings is playing hardball by trying to evict Park City Mountain Resort. “Your backdating of this notice and your apparent efforts to keep it hidden force us to take a different approach to our dispute and long-ter m relationship,” Talisker said in a letter Wednesday to Park City Mountain Resort.

Roswell Daily Record


Today is Sunday, Sept. 1, the 244th day of 2013. There are 121 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight On September 1, 1939, World War II began as Nazi Germany invaded Poland. On this date In 1715, following a reign of 72 years, King Louis XIV of France died four days before his 77th birthday. In 1807, former Vice President Aaron Burr was found not guilty of treason. (Burr was then tried on a misdemeanor charge, but was again acquitted.) In 1902, the Georges Melies (meh-lee-EHZ’) short film “Le Voyage dans la lune” (A Trip to the Moon) opened in France. In 1913, the play “Androcles and the Lion” by George Bernard Shaw had its British debut at the St. James’s Theatre in London (it had previously been performed in Berlin). In 1923, the Japanese cities of Tokyo and Yokohama were devastated by an earthquake that claimed some 140,000 lives. In 1932, New York City Mayor James J. “Gentleman Jimmy” Walker resigned following charges of graft and corruption in his administration. In 1942, U.S. District Court Judge Martin I. Welsh, ruling from Sacramento, Calif., on a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of Fred Korematsu, upheld the wartime detention of Japanese-Americans as well as Japanese nationals. In 1951, the United States, Australia and New Zealand signed a mutual defense pact, the ANZUS treaty. In 1961, the Soviet Union ended a moratorium on atomic testing with an above-ground nuclear explosion in central Asia. A TWA Lockheed Constellation crashed shortly after takeoff from Chicago’s Midway Airport, killing all 78 people on board. In 1972, American Bobby Fischer won the international chess crown in Reykjavik (RAY’-kyuh-vik), Iceland, as Boris Spassky of the Soviet Union resigned before the resumption of Game 21. An arson fire at the Blue Bird Cafe in Montreal, Canada, claimed 37 lives. In 1983, 269 people were killed when a Korean Air Lines Boeing 747 was shot down by a Soviet jet fighter after the airliner entered Soviet airspace. In 1993, Louis Freeh was sworn in as director of the FBI. Ten years ago: During a Labor Day trip to Richfield, Ohio, President George W. Bush announced he was creating a high-level government post to nurture the manufacturing sector. Arab TV broadcast an audiotape purportedly from Saddam Hussein denying any involvement in a bombing in Najaf, Iraq, that killed a beloved Shiite (SHEE’-eyet) cleric. The U.S.-picked Iraqi Governing Council named a new Cabinet. Actor Rand Brooks, who played Scarlett O’Hara’s first husband in the movie “Gone with the Wind,” died in Santa Ynez, Calif., at age 84. Five years ago: Hurricane Gustav slammed into the heart of Louisiana’s fishing and oil industry with 110 mph winds, delivering only a glancing blow to New Orleans. Republicans opened their national convention in St. Paul, Minn., on a subdued note because of Hurricane Gustav; John McCain’s running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, revealed that her 17-year-old daughter, Bristol, was pregnant. Jerry Lewis raised a record $65 million for the Muscular Dystrophy Association in his annual Labor Day telethon. Country singer -actor Jerry Reed died in Nashville at age 71. Voiceover artist Don LaFontaine, whose distinctive baritone graced innumerable movie trailers, died in Los Angeles at age 68. One year ago: President Barack Obama ridiculed the just-completed Republican National Convention as bettersuited to an era of black-and-white TV and “trickle-down, you’re on your own” economics, and declared that Mitt Romney “did not offer a single new idea” for fixing the economy.

Roswell Daily Record


Dear Editor Between Feb 13 and 15, 1945, the allies bombed the city of Dresden creating a firestorm that killed 25,000 people, mostly civilians. Firebomb Raids on Tokyo on March 9 and 10, of 1945, created another firestor m that left more than 100,000 dead, mostly civilians. And the atom bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki left another estimated 246,000 people dead, mostly civilians. Most of the civilians killed in those four raids were women and children. The men were off fighting somewhere. So what’s the big deal about a gas attack in Syria? Are people killed by being burned up in a fire stor m or blown up by a bomb or riddled by bullets somehow less dead than those killed in a gas attack? The media, urged on by the Obama Administration, is showing us the bodies of victims of Assad’s gas attack. How about pictures of the 100,000 or more, and still counting, that have been killed by bombs, artillery shells, and AK-47 bullets since the conflict in Syria started? Would they be any less horrific than those killed by gas? Or, is Assad’s gas attack simply another WMD or Gulf of Tonkin incident excuse for an administration supported by hawkish senators and congressmen on both sides like John McCain (R) and Robert Mendez (D) to once again flex its military muscle? I was just 18 days away from my 8th birthday when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. We have been at war either overtly or covertly ever since. I served in three of those wars, first as a Marine and later as an Airman. When is enough, enough? How long will it be before we as a nation have had our fill of war? When will our government quit looking for excuses to go to war? Stop drawing lines in the sand? I know what they say. They say they hate war but we have to do it because (enter your favorite go-towar excuse here).

Republicans want to abolish Obamacare. How about abolishing the War Powers Act and forcing Congress to declare war in accordance with the Constitution instead. No elected office holder or bureaucrat can assure me they are doing the right thing by taking military action because I believe or trust NONE of them. The Middle East is going to have to heal itself. The West can’t do it for them. All we can do is exacerbate the situation by constantly picking at the scabs of conflicts that don’t concern us. Noel Sivertson Roswell NM

Nuclear waste disposal

Dear Editor: A recent editorial by the Denver Post that your publication printed suggested a “less than ideal but workable fallback plan” for cleaning up our nation’s nuclear waste, in light of the paralysis at Yucca Mountain. I disagree because “less than ideal but workable” is simply not acceptable when it comes to cleaning up our nation’s radioactive waste. Instead, why don’t we look to a solution possibly more ideal than Yucca Mountain, in ter ms of being based on community consent, being more affordable, and being just as safe? It’s a solution that has been right under our noses the entire time. Our nation’s radioactive waste supply includes a sizeable amount of what’s called defense high level waste. This type of waste is “old, cold and worthless” and can’t be reprocessed. It should be disposed of in thick salt beds, similar to the way that defense-generated transuranic (TRU) waste is disposed of at the Department of Energy’s Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) near Carlsbad, New Mexico. Minimal thermal demonstrations can confir m a proper layout for this disposal. A repository in salt beds would need not spend anywhere near the 16 billion dollars that engineered barriers would have cost for the Yucca Mountain repository to defend against oxygen and

the possibility of dripping water, neither of which are a problem in a deep salt repository. And then there’s spent fuel. The Blue Ribbon Commission on America’s Nuclear Future recommended consolidated interim storage for spent fuel. Interim storage is af fordable and safe and uses proven technology. This spent fuel is currently costing tens of millions of dollars per year to maintain and violates binding agreements with states. Interim storage would safely isolate the spent fuel - reducing settlement fees and allowing the nation time to conduct additional thermal testing based on the levels of heat generated by spent fuel. Some of the spent fuel generated in the future should be reprocessed, but a recent study conducted at Oak Ridge National Laboratory concluded that it would not be practical to reprocess most of our current inventory. The smartest solution for spent fuel is to move it to interim storage now to get it out of fuel pools at the nuclear power plants and away from inflating settlement costs, as the search continues for a per manent repository based on a consent-based process and additional geologic research, as needed. The sky is not falling on the nation’s radioactive waste issue, but momentum is needed. We should keep looking to WIPP. A repository in salt may prove to be the best solution. Mayor Dale Janway Carlsbad, NM

A firm stand on marriage

To Whom It May Concern: With regard to the business of issuing marriage licenses to gay partners, I am hoping and praying that Chaves County will speak loud and clear to the rest of New Mexico on this subject. I have always believed that New Mexico was a Christian state and therefore we should not pass a law making it legal for them to marry. It doesn’t matter how many of the other states succumb to this pressure, we do not have to do it.


MIAMI, Okla. (AP) — A seconddegree murder charge has been filed against a man who prosecutors said caused a traffic accident that killed a Colorado truck driver while leading police on a high-speed chase after an attempted bank robbery in northeast Oklahoma. The Miami News-Record reports that Francis Harry Dishmon, 50, was charged Thursday in connection with the death of James Carl Wivell, 48, of Longmont, Colo. Dishmon is being held without bond. Dishmon entered an IBC Bank branch in Miami on Wednesday and

handed the teller a note saying, “I have a gun. I want all your money,” according to Miami Police Chief George Haroldson. Haroldson says Dishmon then ran from the bank without showing a gun or getting any cash. Police later spotted the car Dishmon was driving. Dishmon tried to elude police before trying to pass Wivell’s tractor -trailer rig on U.S. 69A about three miles north of Quapaw. A state police report on the crash says Dishmon’s car struck the front of Wivell’s 18-wheeler and the semi rolled onto the driver’s side and slid

If these couples want to live together in sin, that is their privilege. But, the rest of us do not have to condone this sin publicly by making it legal. As for claiming the rights of other married couples, they can not and will not ever fall in this category. A legally married man and woman are supposed to make a home and bring children into the world. That simply cannot be done by a gay couple. They are not and never will be equals to married men and women. They, and they alone, will have to face their sin and plead their case with God, whenever He calls them from this Earth. May God bless New Mexico and the USA! Sincerely, Carolyn J. Syska Roswell, NM

Our children’s future

Dear Editor: Pathetically, New Mexico is currently ranked, by the national Kids Count organization, as our nation’s worst state in which to raise kids. Unfortunately, the vast majority of parents weren’t a voice for their children during our state’s past, legislative sessions. I find it mind-boggling that my past and present state legislators, who were or are educators, showed or have shown little concer n for our children’s lives and physical or mental health. I’ve had one senator, Pete Campos (D), and three representatives, Dub Williams (R), Avon Wilson (R) and Nora Espinoza (R), who were or are teachers. Campos and Espinoza were the only ones who introduced any non-appropriation child-protective bills. During Campos’ past 18 years, as a state senator, he has introduced only four child-protective bills (2003-SB 468?, 2004-SB 339? 2005-SB 580 & 2011-SB 296). During Espinoza’s past seven years, as a state representative, she has introduced only two child-protective bills (2009-HB 117 & 2009-HB 874?). I included two of Campos’ bills which pertained to nutritional food in our schools and one of Espinoza’s bills which pertained to the drug testing of truant stu-

into a guardrail. Wivell was dead at the scene. Dishmon’s car then spun into an abandoned vehicle parked on the shoulder of the road, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol report. After the accidents, the suspect ran into woods north of Quapaw and south of Baxter Springs, Kan., prompting a brief search before he was apprehended. An affidavit filed in the case says Dishmon, who had no hometown listed, has two prior bank robbery convictions in Florida in 2001 and in Alabama in 2003.

dents. I need a little help from parents. Over the years I’ve been unable to get my state legislators to act on the following critical children-issues: Cruel, independent adults can torture and take the lives of innocent, dependent babies without the fear of losing their own lives. Our state is one of our nation’s most violent states. Tragically, many of the victims are children. Some mothers are giving birth to drug-addicted babies who will be mentally disabled for life. New Mexico is one of the worst states, when it comes to homeless children and children living in poverty. Some of our state’s kids will suf fer from cancer, respiratory ailments, etc., due to secondhand, medical-marijuana smoke. Many of New Mexico’s teens are dying due to drug overdose. Our state has a juvenile delinquency (including gangs) problem. Some prisoners are producing children through our state’s conjugal visit program. Our state’s politicians remind me of a song. In the song a boy asks his congressman for help. His congressman replies, “I would like to help you, son, but you’re too young to vote.” Parents, for your children’s sake, express your concerns to your state legislators. By the way, my father was a public school teacher for over 30 years. I had a lot of respect for my dad; however, I would have lost some of that respect if he had gone into politics. Sincerely, Franklin L. Boren Roswell

Better use of money To Anyone Who Really Cares: I have a question that I feel, every hard working, United States Citizen should want the answer to. Why our government, (that at this time, really needs to find ways to use gover nment funding on things that can bring our country back to the high standards it used to have) keeps wasting money, by


providing funding for educational grants, free housing, free medical, food and yes even cash to people that don’t seem to ever intend to become working, responsible citizens?? Thus taking away from those in need. Grants are being given, to people who claim they want to better their education, so they can get good jobs and provide better lives, for themselves and their children. Yet, once they use up one grant, they just want to apply for another grant to even further their education, but I never see them get a job or even try to get a job, unless it’s something that they don’t have to really work for. How many grants can these so called (wanting to better their lives, and support themselves, instead of having our Government and the tax payers take care of them Citizens) get from the Government? It is time for our Government to say “no more higher education grants; until you can prove you truly want to become a responsible citizen, and get a job!” “You cannot expect the people that have worked, and tried their best to be responsible citizens, to do without, in order for you to keep getting free handouts. It is time for you to do what you claim you wanted the grant for, (what the grant was actually given to you, for) and get off your attitude that the world owes you and go to work!!” There are people out there that truly need help, that can’t get it, due to the free loaders that want everyone (but themselves) to support them.

I love my country, I love my government but we are lacking the glorious standards that we once had. The government needs to work together (Reps-DemsBipartisan-Liberals etc.) to make sure that its funding is being used wisely in order for all to say I am proud to live in the United States of America, the greatest place in the world. “We need our pride back and we are going to work on getting it back.” Respectfully

Republican activists cheered by state successes

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Republican activists are taking solace in success stories by governors and legislatures in GOP-leaning states as their party tries to regroup after the disappointments of a bruising presidential contest and a stalled agenda in Washington. Her e’s what fir ed up Washington-weary GOP stalwarts at a weekend conference of conservatives in this per ennial swing state: pension overhauls in Wisconsin, tax cuts in Indiana and labor losses in Michigan. Some of the biggest applause was reserved for gover nors who did not attend the event. The mere mention of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a tea-party favorite who won national attention for his battles with organized labor, prompted thunderous cheers. That was despite a speaking card full of potential presidential hopefuls, including Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

Several GOP contenders, including Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, used their appearances at the Americans for Prosperity summit to position themselves as Washington outsiders. While that strategy is hardly new, the appeals play to a Republican base starved for the kind of victories that gridlocked Washington has been unable to deliver. “All roads lead back to the states,” Perry said, as more than 1,000 activists roared their approval Friday. “I don’t think the American people want to look to Washington, D.C. to solve the problems of the day. Washington D.C. is creating the problems of the day.” That set up an interesting dynamic, as Rubio was heckled for his support of immigration refor m, his signature legislative issue. Attendees r epeatedly interrupted him with cries of “No amnesty!” For his part, Cruz won no less than four standing

Broncos edge Gauchos 34-31 Sunday, September 1, 2013 Phone: 575-622-7710, ext. 304


When you’re at the lowest of lows, the highest of highs seems like an unreachable goal in most things in life. Not in football, though. The NMMI Broncos were at the lowest of lows with 1:32 remaining in their game against Glendale at Colt Field, Saturday. Just 53 seconds later, though, the Broncos were back at the highest of highs and on the winning side. NMMI (1-1, 1-1 WSFL) scored with 39 seconds left to regain the lead they held for most of the second half and beat Glendale 34-31 in the second WSFL game for both teams. “It’s big. It’s big in more ways than one. (Zero-and-two) in the conference is a tough hole to crawl out of,” said Bronco coach Joe Forchtner, whose team fell behind 170 early in the second quarter before rattling off 26 in a row. “I think just the whole idea of never giving up, I think they can see that come to fruition here.” NMMI took its first lead about midway through the third and had the lead out to 26-17 going to the fourth. Glendale, whose offense had been stagnant since taking the 17-0 lead, closed the gap to 26-24 with 3:16 left and then took the lead with 1:32 left on a Tre Grant to Rod Taylor 44-yard TD. That score, which came thanks to a busted coverage on NMMI’s part, sent the


Roswell Daily Record

Glendale sideline into a state of bedlam, which included a number of a Gauchos spewing trash talk at NMMI fans seated behind them in the stands. There was just one problem, though — the game wasn’t over. And less than a minute later, the Gauchos found themselves eating a rather large portion of crow. After a 20-yard return by Chivon Gallagher on a pooch kick set NMMI up at the Bronco 45, Quinn Billerman hit Delvon Carpenter (four catches, 90 yards, two TDs) on a seam route for a 41-yard gain to the Gaucho 14. “We had a play called and I guess I was the receiver called, and I did the best I could and tried to make the best out of the situation,” Carpenter said about the catch. “We have a shirt and it says, ‘If you want to eat, you’ve got to work.’ “Basically, that’s what I was telling everybody, ‘You’ve got to work if you want to eat. Let’s finish working and finish the game.’” NMMI was flagged for a penalty after the catch, but the damage was done and the Broncos were assured of at least four looks from point-blank range. They needed just two. After an incomplete pass, Billerman hit a wide-open Andrew Johnson at the goal line for a 24-yard touchdown to give NMMI the lead again.

Coming off of two consecutive state championships, it is hard for a team to paint an even bigger target on its back. Despite that tall task, that’s exactly what the Lake Arthur Panthers did following their season opener on Saturday. The Panthers (1-0) scored three TDs in the first 1:56 against Jesus Chapel and never looked back on their way to a dominating 101-12 win over the Chargers. Name a phase of the game and Lake Arthur owned it. On offense, Miguel Rubio had six carries for 123 yards and five scores, while Cody Dalton passed for four TDs. Defensively, Lake Arthur held Jesus Chapel to 97 yards and scored twice — on a Rubio safety and a 17-yard interception return for a TD by Dalton. In the turnover department, Lake Arthur was plus-six. Panther coach Jose Cruz Porras said that he was pleased with his team’s execution. “(I was very pleased),” he said. “Defense wise, you could tell when the first team was in there and when the first team wasn’t. It comes down to execution. That is going to be key this year.” Lake Arthur’s execution was nearly flawless against the visitors from El Paso. The Panthers opened the game with possession and, following a 66-yard kick return by Juan Tarango, Rubio See PANTHERS, Page B3

Against the Scorpions, Roswell took a 1-0 lead in the 67th minute when Sergio Carvajal scored on a penalty kick.

Texas trailed 7-0 late in the second quarter before Ash threw touchdown passes of 54, 66, 74 and 25 yards, and ran 55 yards for a touchdown for the Longhor ns, who rolled up a school-record 715 yards of total offense. “The guys are older now. We’ve been in that situation ... and we’ve failed before,” Ash said. “So much of football is about morale and believing.” Ash threw two interceptions in the second quarter and the Longhor ns’ new up-tempo offense stalled before Ash connected on long touchdown passes to John Harris and Daje Johnson in the final two minutes of the first half. In the third quarter, Ash turned a scramble into a 55-yard touchdown and passed to Malcolm Brown for a 74-yard score. After falling behind, Texas (1-0) scored 35 points on 15 snaps in an avalanche and Ash accounted for 434 total yards. “We started off obviously slow,” Ash said. “(But) you feel that momentum shift when things start rolling. We’re a good team when that starts happening.” Andrew McDonald was 32-of-46 passing with one

needed just one play to reach the end zone, giving Lake Arthur a 7-0 lead 31 seconds into the game. On the ensuing kickoff, Dalton came up with the squib kick, setting his team up at the Charger 28. Rubio needed just one play once again to find the end zone and, following the successful Tarango PAT, the Panthers led 15-0. Three plays later, Dalton came up with his pick-six and the rout was on. With his team comfortably ahead, Porras was able to get his young players some game time and used each play as a learning opportunity for his team. “The eye in the sky, it never lies,” he said. “That is probably the number teaching tool right there, because you can go back and say, ‘Hey look. This was the call on this play and you didn’t make that block.’ “I kind of went off on my center a couple of

touchdown, but also had two turnovers for New Mexico State (0-1), who went 111 last season. Texas came into the season touting its new fastpaced offense and the new confidence displayed in training camp by Ash. Even coach Mack Brown had said his team is ready to challenge for the Big 12 title and return among the nation’s elite. But despite the new enthusiasm and bravado that comes with 19 returning starters, almost nothing went right early. Ash looked like the same quarterback of the last two years: talented but prone to mistakes. The Longhorns had three first-half tur novers and frustrated fans let loose with a few boos when McDonald connected with Joshua Brown for an 11yard touchdown pass that gave New Mexico State a surprise lead late in the second quarter. The Aggies’ touchdown came after Ash threw his second interception. The shocking score line seemed to wake up the Longhorns. Ash found Harris open on the sideline for Texas’ first touchdown. After Texas used three quick timeouts to force New Mexico State to punt, Ash connected with Johnson across the middle and the receiver sped away from five defenders for another long score. Trailing 14-7 at halftime,

win. A full team win,” said Billerman, who finished 19 of 29 for 297 yards and four TDs. “That’s just something that we needed. We can build on this and get a few wins in a row, and take this into the rest of conference play. “

Games are decided by those extra points.” Porras added that both teams played until the end. “That was probably one of the longest halves we have played,” he said. “But, all in all, hats off to both (team’s) kids. They

finished. They lost one of their star players and they had to readjust their offense. “As you can tell, it wasn’t as good a showing as they wanted. Our kids were happy to just hit someone else.” Dominic Pisana hauled in two TD receptions, while Felipe De La Cruz and Luis Velo each had one TD reception. Freshman Saul De La

“That’s about as good as we would’ve hoped for coming into that,” New Mexico State first-year coach Doug Martin said. “We let it get away from us in the second half.” With momentum swung to Texas, New Mexico State gambled with an onside kick to open the second half. The Longhorns recovered and Johnson scored again four plays later, scooting around the left side on a 24-yard run for a 21-7 Texas lead that broke the game open. New Mexico State couldn’t match Texas’ speed in the open field. Ash’s dash through the secondary and his long scoring pass to Brown turned it into a rout long before Ash connected with Mike Davis for his fourth touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. The 715 total yards broke the Texas record of 692 set in 1998.

Isner exits in US Open’s 3rd round; 1 US man left Roswell Daily Record

NEW YORK (AP) — Trying to extend his stay at the U.S. Open, John Isner smacked a return winner, then pointed his right index finger toward the Louis Armstrong Stadium stands and circled his arm overhead, riling up the fans. Two points later, sprinting so far he nearly reached the seats, Isner hit a forehand that closed a point, punched the air and then shook his fists, doing his best Jimmy Connors imitation. Minutes after that, Isner cupped his hand to his ear, basking in the chants of “U-S-A! U-S-A!” The highest-ranked American man finally heard the adulation he’d been hoping for a couple of days earlier, when he lamented that so many spectators cheered so vociferously for his French opponent. What the 13thseeded Isner failed to do in return Saturday was deliver a victory in the third round at Flushing Meadows, meaning only one U.S. man remains of the 15 in the field. Isner even blamed those exuberant attempts to stir the crowd for his struggles down the stretch of a 6-4, 36, 7-5, 7-6 (5) loss to 22ndseeded Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany. “I felt like I wore myself out getting charged up out there,” Isner said after bowing out against Kohlschreiber in New York for the second consecutive year. “I used too much energy, and I shouldn’t have done that. It was stupid on my part. So I was pretty gassed there.” No such concerns about

getting tired for Roger Federer. The 17-time Grand Slam champion worked quickly once again, beating 63rdranked Adrian Mannarino of France 6-3, 6-0, 6-2 in 1 hour, 21 minutes Saturday night to get to the fourth round in Flushing Meadows for the 13th consecutive year. Through three matches, Federer has dropped 21 games and spent a total of 4 1/2 hours on court. Next for Federer is 19thseeded Tommy Robredo of Spain, who ended the run of 179th-ranked qualifier Daniel Evans of Britain 7-6 (6), 6-1, 4-6, 7-5. Win that, and Federer could face 12time major champion Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals; the two rivals never have played each other in New York. Aside from Isner, the other American man in action Saturday, 20-year -old Jack Sock, was beaten 3-6, 7-6 (1), 6-1, 6-2 by No. 18 Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia. So the last man from the United States left is Tim Smyczek, a 25-year-old from Milwaukee who got into the main draw thanks to a wildcard invitation from the U.S. Tennis Association and plays 43rd-ranked Marcel Granollers of Spain in the third round Sunday. If Smyczek loses — a distinct possibility, considering he’s ranked 109th and never before even made it past the second round at Grand Slam tournament — it will be the first time with zero U.S. men in the round of 16 at the country’s tennis championship, which was first played in 1881.

Boyd’s 5 TDs lead No. 8 Clemson to win over Georgia

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Tajh Boyd threw for three touchdowns and rushed for two others, Clemson’s defense sacked Aaron Murray four times and the eighth-ranked Tigers stung No. 5 Georgia 38-35 Saturday night. Boyd had scoring passes of 77 yards to Sammy Watkins, 24 yards to Zac Brooks and 9 yards to Stanton Seckinger. Boyd also added TD runs of 4 and 2 yards to win the lone matchup of top 10 teams in college football’s opening weekend. It lived up to the billing, a back-and-forth classic that should vault Boyd to the top of the Heisman watch lists and get Clemson into the top five of the rankings. The Tigers took the lead for good, 31-28, on Chandler Catanzaro’s 24-yard field goal in the third quarter. Georgia had a chip-shot try for a tying kick on its next possession, but couldn’t get if off after Nathan Theus’ bad snap . Two series later, Boyd led a 12-play, 87-yard TD drive that ended with tight end Seckinger tip-toeing the sidelines to get in. Georgia’s Todd Gurley ran for 154 yards and two touchdowns. While Boyd soared, Murray struggled to move the Bulldogs when it counted most. He led a 64-yard, hurry up drive in the final quarter and his 1-yard TD run cut a 10-point lead to 38-35 with 1:19 left. But Clemson recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock to end Georgia’s five-game series win streak. The teams open the 2014 season in Athens. Watkins had six catches for 127 yards while Rod McDowell finished with 132 yards on the ground in his first game replacing 1,000-yard rusher Andre Ellington. Murray completed 20 of 29 passes for 323 yards. But threw an interception and was constantly chased around by Clemson’s lightly regarded defense. The victory gives the Tigers back-to-back wins over power schools from the Southeastern Conference following the 25-24 win over LSU at the Chick-Fil-A Bowl last New Year’s Eve. Tiger fans chanted “A-C-C, A-C-C,” after time ran out. Boyd was the star of that bowl, too, the game’s MVP. Coach Dabo Swinney declared his group a national championship team moments after the win. Boyd was all but certain to give up his senior season for the NFL but chose to return, he said, for the chance to win games like this. The Tigers don’t have a lot of stumbling blocks in their schedule — they play South Carolina State of the FCS next week — and might not be truly tested until Florida State plays here on Oct. 19. Clemson pulled out the stops in the weekend’s only showdown of top 10 teams. ESPN’s College GameDay came to campus and the university inducted fan hero Danny Ford — he coached the Tigers to the 1981 national championship — into its Ring of Honor on the facing of the football stadium. Both teams spent the past eight months hearing about each other and were jacked up from the start as Georgia’s players ran through their sidelines and down toward Memorial Stadium’s hill, yelling at the Tigers as they ran onto the field. Coaches and officials stepped between to make sure things didn’t go any further. Early on, it looked like the high-flying, Techmo Bowl matchup everyone expected as Georgia and Clemson used big plays to get in the end zone. Boyd had passes of 17 yards to Seckinger and 25 to Charone Peake to set up his 4yard scoring run. Moments later, Gurley flashed through the Clemson defensive line for a 75-yard touchdown. Seconds after that it was Sammy Watkins turn as he grabbed Boyd’s pass and raced for a 77-yard TD of his own.

“I don’t care,” said Isner, who double-faulted to get broken in the last game of the third set, then was broken again while serving for the fourth. “I’m going to watch football for a while. That’s all I care about.” A loss by Smyczek also would make 2013 the first season with no Americans in the second week of any of the four major tournaments. Even if Smyczek wins, it still would be only the second time there was just one American in the fourth round at the U.S. Open. The other? In 2009, when Isner was the lone one in the second week. All part of the recent decline of American men’s tennis. At Wimbledon this year, for example, no men from the United States even got to the third round. That hadn’t happened since 1912 — when no Americans entered the tournament. Then came this news: The ATP rankings of Aug. 12 did not contain a single U.S. representative in the top 20. Never in the 40 years of men’s rankings had that been the case. This edition of the U.S. Open is the 40th Grand Slam tournament since an American man won one of the sport’s four most prestigious titles, a record drought that dates to Andy Roddick’s 2003 championship in New York. That sort of gap used to be unimaginable for the nation of Bill Tilden and Don Budge, John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors, Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi. “Well, what shall I say? I

think, yeah, it’s bad luck,” said Kohlschreiber, whose next opponent is Nadal, a straight-set winner Saturday. “For sure, it’s not great for the American history not to have a player in the second week. But you had so many good years.” There’s a trio of Americans in the women’s fourth round, because wild-card entry Alison Riske, who is ranked only 81st, eliminated 2011 Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova 6-3, 6-0. The seventh-seeded Kvitova got her blood pressure checked by a trainer, then said afterward she had a virus and a fever. “I’ve got a new confidence in myself,” said Riske, a 23year -old from Pittsburgh who is now based in College

Park, Md. “I believe that I belong here.” There’s no doubt the other two U.S. women who are left belong: No. 1 Serena Williams and No. 15 Sloane Stephens play each other Sunday with a quarterfinal berth on the line. Williams is seeking a fifth U.S. Open title and 17th Grand Slam singles trophy overall. Stephens is one of only three women to reach the round of 16 at every major tournament this year, and she beat Williams en route to the Australian Open semifinals. Riske next faces Daniela Hantuchova, while other fourth-rounders set up Saturday are two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka against 2008 French Open champion Ana

Ivanovic, No. 10 Roberta Vinci against unseeded Camila Giorgi in an all-Italian match, and No. 21 Simona Halep against Flavia Pennetta. The 136th-ranked Giorgi defeated 2009 U.S. Open runner -up Caroline Wozniacki, who was seeded sixth, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 at night. Other men reaching the fourth round: No. 4 David Ferrer of Spain, No. 8 Richard Gasquet of France, and No. 10 Milos Raonic of Canada. Raonic, the highestranked man in Canada’s history, does not need to worry about the same kind of expectations that players such as Isner do.

Business slow in post-Sandy summer on Jersey shore MANASQUAN, N.J. (AP) — No, it wasn’t a great summer to do business at the Jersey shore. But considering the Superstor m damage Sandy did to the region last fall and the Herculean effort to get large swaths of the coast ready for tourists and residents by Memorial Day, many say they are grateful they had any kind of summer season at all this year. “What hurt us was there are a lot of residents who are still displaced by the storm — people that I see all the time, whose children I’ve watched grow up, who I’ve seen maybe once or twice all summer,” said Matthew Riccelli, general manager of Gee Gee’s Pizza, which has been a fixture on the Manasquan

beach walk for three decades. The business and an adjacent arcade were wrecked by the stor m, which filled the 8-foothigh basement with 6 feet of sand, shattered doors and windows, and flooded interiors. Riccelli said business was down by 30 percent this summer because of the lingering ef fects of the stor m on tourism but also by an exceptionally rainy first half of the season. A carwash his friend owns also is down about 30 percent this summer, he added. On the Belmar boardwalk, the Exit 98 Boutique reopened in a steel shipping container for this summer. Foot traffic was about the same as last year, but profits were

down, said longtime employee Kathy Ferrara. “Every last thing had to be replaced, from the first piece of clothing to the last paper clip, every hanger, every rack — Wite-Out! Stupid things like Wite-Out we had to replace,” she said. Gov. Chris Christie, who has based much of his reelection campaign on the state’s recovery from the storm, said no one expected a normal summer this year. He spent the first week in August at the shore with his family, sitting on the beach, playing miniature golf, strolling boardwalks and dining out every night. “We knew that this summer was not going to be like the summer of 2012; I said that right

Facts, figures as students return to the classroom

WASHINGTON (AP) — Schools and classrooms are spiffed up — maybe. New textbooks have been ordered — perhaps. Teachers are energized — hopefully. What’s certain is that millions of children in the United States are heading to school after the summer. Many are there for the first time, while others are in the final year of their formal education. There will be tears, from some prekindergarten and kindergarten youngsters starting school, and from parents as they leave their new college students at the dorm. Statistics make clear that those with college degrees generally will do better than their peers who do not graduate and that those who drop out from high school face an even more dismal future. As the school year begins, some facts and figures about education in America: HOW MANY STUDENTS ARE THERE? The National Center for Education Statistics estimated that in 2013, 50.1 million children will be enrolled in U.S. public schools and 5.2 million will be in private school. That doesn’t include students who are home-schooled. The Education Department’s statistics arm also estimated there were 1.5 million U.S. students home-schooled in 2007; advocates of home schooling advocates put the number higher. Enrollment in colleges and universities was estimated to reach a record 21.8 million this fall, according to NCES, the Education Department’s statistics arm.

——— WHO’S TEACHING THEM? There are about 3.3 million elementary and secondary public teachers in 2013, leading to a student teacher ratio of 15-to-1, NCES said. The average teacher in a public school earned about $56,000 for the school year that ended in 2011, according to the agency. When adjusted for inflation, that salary is only 3 percent higher than it was for the year that ended in the spring of 1991. ——— WHAT ABOUT SPENDING ON KIDS? Teacher salaries are just part of the total spent on educating children. All told, NCES says $591 billion will be spent during the new school year. That breaks down to an average $11,810 for each student. —— WHAT ARE STUDENTS BEING TAUGHT? The buzz word these days is Common Core. The Common Core State Standards establish benchmarks for student learning in math and reading. Fortyfive states and the District of Columbia have adopted the standards, which critics decry as tantamount to a national curriculum. Supporters counter that the standards are necessary to ensure that high school graduates are ready for college or career. ——— DRESSED AND EQUIPPED FOR SUCCESS In some households, it is a tradition that children get a new outfit for that first day of school. But the cost is just a fraction of what parents pay to get their children ready for school. The National Retail Federa-

tion estimated that a family’s back-to-school spending for elementary and secondary school in 2013 would average about $634.78. In addition to clothing, supplies and electronics add to the total. That’s down more than $50 from the previous year.

from the beginning,” he said. “There’s no doubt that business was going to be down all over the Jersey shore because a lot of people, having seen the extraordinary devastation, didn’t believe we’d be able to be up and running in time for summer. They turned out to be wrong, and I think we’ll get them back next year. But it’s a lot better than people in November and December thought it was going to be.” One of them was Richard Garcia. The Monroe, N.Y., man brought his family to Manasquan last week and was surprised at the changes. “The (dunes) are gone, and there’s all these houses going up on pilings,” he said. “It looks like the

Outer Banks in North Carolina. But we knew it wasn’t destroyed.” Mike Clarkin, of Freehold, was pleased with what he saw on the Manasquan beachfront. “I think they did a wonderful job here,” he said. “I miss the sand dunes and there’s a lot of construction work going on, but the beach is open and it looks good.” Beach home rentals also slowed this summer. The market on Long Beach island was off by about 25 percent, said Maggie O’Neill, a real estate agent in Ship Bottom. But that figure doesn’t distress her. “If you asked us nine months ago whether we were even going to have a season this year, we would have been hard-pressed to

Now you see it... it...Now Now you don’ don’t. t.

For college students, there’s a higher cost. The federation said back-toschool spending for a college student would average $836.83 this year, also down from 2012.

Last December’s shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., brought questions about school security to the forefront.

More than 1.2 million students between ages 12 and 18 were victims of crimes at school in 2011, according to NCES and the Bureau of Justice Statistics. Of those, nearly half were violent crimes and 648,600 involved thefts, the agencies said.

Among students ages 5 to 18, there were 11 homicides and three suicides at school from July 1, 2010, to June 30, 2011. The toll at Sandy Hook Elementary School was nearly double that number: 20 students were killed, along with six adults. ———

give you an answer,” she said. O’Neill said only about 5 percent of the rental stock on Long Beach Island was unavailable because of lingering storm damage. “People who rent with us from Staten Island or Connecticut, their primary homes were damaged,” she said. “They’re working on fixing up their primary homes, and they’re not taking vacations this year. Also, many people make their reservations in January and February, and that was a time of great uncertainty. We didn’t know what the Jersey shore and the beaches were going to look like come summer. Some people went elsewhere this year.”

Egypt security forces arrest top Sinai militant Roswell Daily Record

CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian security forces said they arrested Saturday a top wanted militant in the Sinai Peninsula, while authorities reported a failed attempt to disrupt traffic on the strategic Suez Canal but gave scant detail. Canal authority chairman Mohab Mamish said a “terrorist element” had tried to disrupt navigation in the waterway by targeting a Panama-flagged ship. In comments carried by official news agency MENA, he said the attempt was “completely unsuccessful” and the container carrier unharmed. He did not say how the ship was targeted. Authorities have taken extra security measures to safeguard the waterway as lawlessness and violence gripped Sinai, where militants and smugglers rove relatively freely and target security forces and posts. Mamish said military troops dealt “firmly” with the situation, and that navigation was largely

uninterrupted. Earlier Saturday, residents of Port Said, a city that lies along the waterway, said they heard a loud bang. It was not immediately possible to reach witnesses later Saturday. Egyptian authorities have heightened their security arrangements in recent weeks, following the military coup that ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi on July 3. They accuse opponents of the coup of trying to destabilize the country, and have waged a security crackdown against members of the Muslim Brotherhood, from which Morsi hails, and other allies, arresting hundreds. Pro-military media and state TV have frequently described the crackdown on Morsi supporters as a “fight against terrorism.” Morsi supporters have held near -daily protests since the coup but deny they are violent. After a

bloody dispersal of their major sit-ins earlier this month, however, some retaliated by attacking police stations, government buildings and churches. In Sinai, violence has only worsened since Morsi’s overthrow. The militant arrested there Saturday is suspected of leading an al-Qaidalinked group in an ambush where 25 off-duty policemen were lined up and shot last week, security officials said. The attack was one of the area’s worst militant strikes on security forces. man, Adel The Mohammed, also known as Adel Habara according to one official, has already been sentenced to death in absentia for killing soldiers in the Nile Delta last year. Habara’s arrest could potentially undermine militant activities in the area, where over two dozen security men have been killed alone since July. The security official said two other

Sunday, September 1, 2013

suspects were arrested along with Habara.

Authorities have been engaged in a long-running battle against militants in the norther n half of the strategic region, which borders the Gaza Strip and Israel.

Earlier Saturday, security officials said 31 suspected militants have been arrested since Thursday, including two caught seeking treatment for wounds sustained in clashes with police.

In other violence nearby, a riot police of ficer was shot in the chest Friday while on patrol in the city of El-Arish, the capital of North Sinai governorate, the Interior Ministry said Saturday.

According to one security official, four militants have also been killed since Thursday. All of ficials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

France awaits US decision on Syria PARIS (AP) — Mirroring U.S. policy, France will wait for its parliament to consider possible military action against Syria before President Francois Hollande decides whether to launch strikes, his office said Saturday. Paris hewed a close line to Washington while asserting its independence after President Barack Obama said Saturday he believes the United States should respond with force over a suspected chemical weapons attack by Bashar Assad’s regime, but decided to put the issue before the U.S. Congress first. France, under Hollande’s Socialists, has been the most vocal and visible country to show willingness to join the United States in military action against Syria following an alleged chemical weapons attack in rebel-held or contested areas last week. The U.S. claims the attack killed 1,429 people — including

more than 400 children — marking a grave and intolerable escalation in Syria’s two-year civil war that has left 100,000 dead. Before his speech about Syria outside the White House, Obama explained his decision to Hollande in a phone call, said an official in the French president’s of fice. Hollande noted that he had already decided to convene France’s parliament on Wednesday to take up a debate about Syria. The two presidents “reaffirmed their joint willingness to act,” and have an “absolute and shared conviction” that Assad’s regime was behind the chemical weapons attack, the official said on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to be publicly named under presidential policy. Unlike in Britain, Hollande does not need the permission of parliament to order France to intervene militarily. Britain’s

parliament on Thursday rejected efforts by Prime Minister David Cameron to have British forces possibly take part in military action against Syria. In his speech, Obama said the U.N. Security Council “has been completely paralyzed and unwilling to hold Assad accountable. As a consequence, many people have advised against taking this decision to Congress, and undoubtedly, they were impacted by what we saw happen in the United Kingdom this week when the Parliament of our closest ally failed to pass a resolution with a similar goal, even as the prime minister supported taking action.” After Obama’s speech, Cameron tweeted: “I understand and support Barack Obama’s position on (hash)Syria.” French of ficials said France is ready to strike once Hollande gives the order, though he has said he hasn’t yet made a deci-

November for committing “hostile acts.” Bae, a 45year-old tour operator and Christian missionary, was sentenced in April to 15 years of hard labor. An unidentified North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman said in remarks carried by state media late Saturday that his country intended to allow King’s visit even though the U.S. and South Korea were conducting annual military drills. But he said the U.S. “beclouded the hard-won atmosphere of humanitari-

an dialogue in a moment” by allegedly infiltrating B52H strategic bombers into the sky above the peninsula during the exercises. He called it “the most blatant nuclear blackmail against us.” The annual Ulchi Freedom Guardian drills, which ended Friday, were computer-simulated war games that U.S. and South Korea say are defensive nature, but which North Korea calls a rehearsal for an invasion. The U.S. military command in Seoul did not immediately comment on

sion. The officials haven’t publicly specified how the French military posture has changed in preparation for a Syria action, though analysts say that France’s most likely contribution would involve firing cruise missiles on targets in Syria. At the U.N. Security Council, Russia and China have repeatedly blocked efforts by fellow per manent members Britain, France and the United States to pass tough resolutions against Assad’s regime. Egypt’s Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy said Cairo rejects military intervention in Syria except under Chapter 7 of the U.N. charter, whereby it is proven that the country has become a danger to international peace and security. Fahmy also asked that any decision be put off until the report of the U.N. investigators regarding the use of chemical weapons comes out.

Mexico prez’s can-do image put to the test A supporter of Egypt's ousted President Mohammed Morsi chants slogans against Egyptian Army during a march following Friday Muslim prayers at Nasser City in Cairo, Egypt.

MEXICO CITY (AP) — President Enrique Pena Nieto came to power Dec. 1 with a swagger. His Institutional Revolutionary Party, for all its faults, knew how to govern. He promised a new Mexico, an economic powerhouse far from its image as a violence-torn land overrun by drug traffickers. He passed radical reforms for education and telecommunications and proposed more for energy and taxes. But nine months later, as Pena Nieto prepares to give his first state of the nation address on Monday, the new Mexico still looks a lot like the old one. Economic growth projections have been cut nearly in half. The streets are clogged with anti-reform protesters, who have blocked Congress and even forced the president to change the date and location of that state of the nation speech. Drug-related killings are down, his government says without releasing statistics. But kidnapping and extortion, the crimes affecting average citizens that Pena Nieto promised to attack, are on the rise. After 12 years out of office, the once-autocratic party known as the PRI is encountering a more complicated, democratic country than the one it ran for 71 years. “They have to learn how to govern in a new context where there are a greater number of new voices from new spaces, and there is less control,” said Alberto Aziz Nassif, an analyst with the Center for Investigations in Social Anthropology. With GDP growth projections dropping from 3.1 to

1.8 percent this year, and protesting teachers forcing legislators to shelve a key piece of his education refor m, Pena Nieto cancelled a trip to Turkey to rescue the meat of the education reform in Congress.

“Let me tell you, in this effort we will not relent. We will not surrender. We are going firmly and with determination to make education refor m happen,” he said at a presidential stop on Wednesday celebrating Senior Citizens Day.

Pena Nieto worked during the campaign to convince voters that they were voting for a new PRI, devoid of the corruption and coercive tactics that got the party kicked out in 2000. He was elected in July 2012 as an alternative to six years of the Felipe Calderon administration, which was marked by a bloody and divisive attack on organized crime and a legislative agenda in many ways similar to Pena Nieto’s that fell victim to a divided Congress.

“In fact, the mood was very hopeful for early, rapid and instantaneous change,” said Virgilio Bravo, researcher at the Technological Institute of Monterrey. The PRI won the presidency but not majorities in Congress. So Pena Nieto touts as his first major achievement getting the three major parties to sign a pact to drive major reforms in Congress. In his first month, he secured the constitutional amendments necessary to launch the biggest change in the Mexican educational system in more than six decades.

NKorea blames US threat for aborting envoy’s trip SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea said it rescinded its invitation for a U.S. envoy to visit the country to seek the freedom of an American detainee because Washington perpetrated a “grave provocation” by allegedly mobilizing nuclear-capable bombers during recent military drills with Seoul. Bob King, the U.S. special envoy for North Korean human rights, had been scheduled to travel to Pyongyang on Friday for talks on Kenneth Bae, who has been detained since

the North Korean statement. Earlier this year, the U.S. took the unusual step of sending nuclear-capable B52 and B-2 bombers to participate in springtime military drills with South Korea as tension was running high after a string of warlike rhetoric from North Korea, including vows to launch nuclear war. The flights drew a furious response from Pyongyang. Animosities have since eased, with Pyongyang moderating its rhetoric and seeking diplomacy with

Seoul and Washington. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said Friday the U.S. was “surprised and disappointed by North Korea’s decision” and remains gravely concer ned about Bae’s health. Bae’s family expressed disappointment but said they were holding on to faith that North Korean and U.S. diplomats would resume talks soon. Bae suffers from multiple health problems. Bae is at least the sixth American detained in North Korea since 2009. The oth-

ers were eventually allowed to leave without serving their ter ms, with some releases coming after prominent Americans, including former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, visited North Korea. Analysts say North Korea has previously used detained Americans as bargaining chips in its standoff with the U.S. over its nuclear and missile programs. International disarmament talks on ending North Korea’s nuclear ambitions remain stalled since 2009.

Believe me, Grand Rapids is not a ‘Detroit’ B8 Sunday, September 1, 2013



Two weeks ago, I had the extreme pleasure of attending a four -day Crime Stoppers USA conference in Grand Rapids, Mich. Now to be fair, I think I may have had an attitude of “Oh, Lord, it’ll be just like Detroit!” Boy, did I have an awakening when I arrived in Grand Rapids. It is an absolutely beautiful city, with a downtown (maybe it’s uptown ... I don’t really know the difference) which is full of businesses and high-rise hotels. There are little neat coffee shops and ice cream parlors where you can sit out on the sidewalk and relax. Young people are everywhere just enjoying each other and business men and women briskly walk towards their next appointment. It’s a very pleasant environment.

No Detroit here. No boarded up businesses or shut-down plants, or thousands of unoccupied homes which have been foreclosed upon or abandoned by people who have no jobs. And while I realize that perhaps Grand Rapids has similar areas within its city limits, you certainly don’t sense it. But, I digress! Crime Stoppers USA is a nationwide network of organizations which offer cash rewards anonymously for tips

which may lead to arrests of criminals. CSUSA has no real authority over its members, although it certainly does have suggested policies and procedures, and ideas which improve the effectiveness of local programs. It’s interesting to see the varied names of the local programs nationally, including such things as “Crime Watch,” “Silent Witness,” and “Crime Line” as well as various “Crime Stoppers” organizations.

This is the second Crime Stoppers USA conference that I have attended and I hope it to be valuable to my contribution to the Chaves County Crime Stoppers program. In 2010, I travelled to San Antonio for the conference there. However, I was a rookie at the time – brand new to the board and everything I lear ned was something I didn’t know before. The Grand Rapids 2013 event,

Roswell Daily Record

while a repeat of some subject matter, served to underscore important topics and add to my overall understanding of the program. We also had some wonderful speakers. Extremely impactful to me was Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, who actually spoke here in Roswell a couple of years ago. I think any attendee probably remembers well that session with the colonel. Here in Roswell, his topic was of interest to the law enforcement community alone and the rest of us were not even invited. However, the other day I heard him talk as an expert on terrorism in our schools, and it was riveting! He also expresses some very straightforward views about television, movie and video game violence. I even bought a couple of books. One of the best sessions I attended was entitled “Elements

of a Great Crime Stopper Coordinator.” At least half of the conference attendees were police officers or sheriff’s deputies, whose jobs included being law enforcement coordinators in their program. The coordinator is the individual who directly receives the tips and then directs them to the proper detective or the proper agency within his or her jurisdiction. There were virtually none of them who received pay or extra pay for the position, and yet I saw an awesome pride of accomplishment and dedication to the job. It was fascinating!

This column is too short to say it all, but let me at least thank the board of directors of Chaves County Crime Stoppers for allowing me to go. Next year’s conference is in Austin, and I’m already pumped about it! I just hope the board will let me go again.

Navy Midshipman Adam R. Carnahan, a 2013 graduate of New Mexico Military Institute, recently completed 'Plebe' Summer at the U.S. Navy Academy. Plebe Summer began on Induction Day, June 27, and concluded after seven challenging weeks of basic midshipman training. The pressure and rigor of Plebe Summer is carefully designed to help "plebes" prepare for their first academic year at the Naval Academy and the four years of challenges leading to graduation and commissioning as a Navy or Marine Corps Officer. Plebe Summer is run by upperclass midshipmen who are specially trained in their leadership roles to effectively develop plebes into successful midshipmen. Plebe Summer activities include swimming, martial arts, basic rock climbing, obstacle, endurance and confidence courses designed to develop physical, mental and team-building skills, as well as 40 training hours devoted to the instruction of infantry drill and formal parades. Throughout the summer, new midshipmen rapidly gain general knowledge of seamanship, navigation, damage control, sailing and handling yard patrol craft. Plebes also learn how to use 9 mm pistols and M-16 rifles. Approximately 1,200 candidates are selected each year for the Academy's plebe or freshman class, and each student is required to participate in Plebe Summer. This year the Naval Academy received more than 17,500 applications for the class of 2017.

(AP)—The gates of hell have opened. Its ghosts have been let loose to roam on earth and visit the homes of their relatives. According to traditional Chinese beliefs this happens every year during the seventh month of the lunar year, resulting in a raucous, feast-and music-filled celebration known as the Hungry Ghost Festival. But not all ghosts are good. There are some spirits who wander the streets, ravenous and envious because they died without descendants or were ignored by their kin while alive. To appease the hungry spirits, ethnic Chinese step up prayers, aided by giant colorful joss sticks shaped like dragons. They also burn mock currency and miniature paper television sets, mobile phones and furniture as offering to the ancestors for their use in the other world. For 15 days, neighborhoods hold nightly shows of shrill Chinese operas and pop concerts to entertain the dead. The shows are accompanied by lavish feasts of grilled pork, broiled chicken, rice and fruit. People appease the ghosts in the hopes that the spirits will help them with jobs, school exams or even the lottery. On the 15th day of the month — the most auspicious — families offer cooked food to the ghosts.

The syncopated pitter-patter of 2,000 feet shuffling, sidestepping, running and jumping announce start of the Yucca Youth Basketball League, just as surely as the fall. Open to children ages 5-13, the program accepts players at all levels — from beginners to children who have years of experience playing basketball. “We turn nobody away,” said April Aguilar-Hunter, recreation leader I for the Yucca Recreation Center. The basketball league is led by volunteer basketball coaches who kindly lend their time and expertise to help the youth of Roswell have fun and get exercise in a safe environment. The program not only teaches the basics of basketball — but also gives children several opportunities to compete with other players in their age group. Split into two “seasons,” the Yucca Youth Basketball League is currently accepting players for its first season, comprised of 5- through 8-year-olds. Registration begins this week, and will continue through Sept. 27. Children must have turned 5 years old by Sept. 1 of this year to qualify. The child’s parent or guardian must provide a birth certificate at the time of registration. The second Yucca Youth Basketball League season, tailored for children ages 9-13, will accept new registrants Nov. 1-27. Children may be registered at the Yucca Recreation Center, 500 S. Richardson Ave., during its regular hours, from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Friday. Cost is $30 per child; should a parent or guardian sign up more than one player, registration for the subsequent children would be $25 each. An extremely popular after-school activity for Roswell children, the Yucca Youth Basketball League attracts a large number of players. “We regularly get about 1,000 kids,” Aguilar-Hunter said, a number that includes children in both age groups. The children are split into 10-player teams, with each team member receiving a T-shirt in a distinctive team color. The Yucca Youth Basketball League is not a competitive program, Aguilar-Hunter cautioned. She added that due to the sheer number of players in the league, it is impossible for children to play against every team within their age group. However, she said, each child is guaranteed to play two quarters during each game. The younger age group is tentatively scheduled to begin learning and practicing basketball skills toward the beginning of October, with actual games starting in November. The 9- through 13year -olds will tentatively start practicing in December, with games beginning in January. The first season of the basketball league usually lasts up until the Christmas break; the second season, until February. The popularity and large number of participants in the league prevents all practices and games from taking place at the Yucca Center. Therefore, Aguilar-Hunter said, teams meet at a variety of sites around town, including area schools. “We really have to have the community behind us to have this (project) work,” Aguilar-Hunter said. Every child in the league receives a medal after his or her season comes to a close, Aguilar-Hunger said. A Roswell tradition for the past 30 years, The Yucca Youth Basketball League is the brainchild of Kim Elliott, former Roswell Parks and Recreation director. Elliott retired from the position earlier this year. Basketball Coordinator Damian Cheatem currently oversees the program. The league, greatly aided by its volunteers, could still use officials, Aguilar-Hunter said. Anyone who is interested in officiating for the league may contact the Yucca Center. For more information about the league, call 624-6719.

Grown son learning responsibility under parents’ roof

Q: Our son graduated from high school last spring and is still living at home. Should we still have a curfew for him as long as he is living under our roof, or should we just ask that he always tell us where he’s going? Jim: You didn’t mention any of the specific reasons for your son living at home. Is he considering college? Is he pursuing gainful employment? These are important questions to consider. Whatever the case, there comes a time in every child’s life when he or she crosses the threshold into adulthood. Once this line is crossed, the parent-child relationship changes in some basic ways. Your child is then on the road to becoming your peer and equal rather than a dependent minor. He will be graduating into a position of self-responsibility, and his personal decisions have to be something more than a matter of simple submission to Mom and Dad’s instructions. He



will have to choose to act on the basis of the wisdom you’ve attempted to instill in him over the years and out of an awareness of his personal responsibility.

With that in mind, imposing a curfew on your son at this point might short-circuit the maturation process. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a few ground rules while he’s living under your roof. Sit down with your son and let him know that he is welcome to go on living in your house, but that as an adult he will need to start assuming

more adult responsibilities. This includes responsibility for personal expenses, laundry and cleaning, transportation, phone and Internet. It’s also reasonable to ask that he make a weekly contribution to the grocery budget and even pay a reasonable amount of rent. All of these things will help launch him into the world of adult responsibilities. Q: I have two stepsons and I love them, but I’m having a really hard time connecting with them. I know it’s really hard for them to see their mom with someone other than their dad. Is there something I can do to build our relationships? Dr. Greg Smalley, Vice President, Family Ministries: The joining of two families can be challenging, but it’s not impossible. Here are a few things you might consider as you work to connect with your stepsons. First and foremost, keep in

Roswell Daily Record

mind that it’s easy for an enthusiastic stepparent to come on too strong in expressing his or her excitement about the new family. This can be confusing — even threatening — to a child, triggering a nasty response. At such times, the stepparent needs to relax, step back, and let the relationship develop at the child’s pace.

Life Unplugged

Here are just a few suggestions to begin the process of becoming unplugged. 1. Make sure you are

centered in your adulthood, that you know what is most important to you, what matters most. 2. Make sure your purchases are things you really need. Sometimes the act of purchasing in and of itself is the activity we enjoy, not the having. Ask yourself before buying, “Is this something I want or something I need?” 3. When you are planning your vacation, try not to over complicate it. If your kids are young, instead of planning an elaborate European excursion, go get an empty refrigerator box and put it in the back yard. Drape a blanket over some chairs and get under it. This is classically known as a card board box vacation. Doesn’t cost a thing. Get out and enjoy it with the kids. Set up a tent in the back yard and pretty soon, you’ll be having a great time. 4. Ignore your neighbors as they talk about their new boat, new bikes, and new stuff. This behavior is

contagious. Pretty soon you’ll find yourself thinking, “hmmm, we NEED that, too.” NO you don’t. Focus back on no. 1.

Deal, and also visit the author’s website at Finally, remember that you’re not alone! Every stepparent has to navigate these waters. If you’re persistent, I’m confident that your efforts will eventually bear fruit.

5. Buy good quality when you can, then your things will last forever.

6. Save as much money as you can. It doesn’t matter what you make, what matters is what you keep. When you have financial freedom you have the power to choose your own path.

7. Keep your cell phone usage in perspective. Your phone is not a vital organ.

Y’stone fires expected to stay away from tourists

Roby and Betty Zumwalt.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Allaying concerns from tourists and campers, a National Park Service official says a wildfire burning in the heart of Yellowstone National Park is expected to stay away from major tourist areas during the busy Labor Day weekend. “We haven’t seen a lot of activity or any growth on any of the fires in Yellowstone in recent days,” Yellowstone spokesman Al Nash said Thursday. “And this includes the Alum Fire which is located northwest of the Fishing Bridge area. We don’t expect a lot of activity from any of these fires in the coming days.” The Alum Fire, one of four burning in the park, has charred about 11 square miles. It’s burning on the ridge about 5 miles northwest of Fishing Bridge Junction on the north side of Yellowstone Lake. Fishing Bridge, Lake Village and Bridge Bay are major tourist spots in the area. All park campgrounds, lodging, stores, service stations, restaurants and other facilities are open, Nash said. “All the roads in and to the park are open,” he said. “We have some very limited backcountry closures in response to the fires, but they impact a very small percentage of our visitors.” While the Alum Fire is not expected to move toward Fishing Bridge, Lake Village or Bridge Bay, firefighters have done extensive work to ensure the protection of the areas should the fire make an unexpected move. Nash said Yellowstone has received calls from some worried and confused people about the fire situation in the park. “Once we explain that this is Yellowstone in Wyoming and tell them about our current fire activity we are able to allay their concerns,” he said. “Some people get us mixed up with Yosemite in California.” Firefighters have been battling a large wildfire that has burned more than 300 square miles around Yosemite National Park. Nash said Yellowstone typically sees visitors from around the world on Labor Day weekend. “But when we have a favorable weather forecast like we do for this weekend, we often see a significant influx of people from the immediate region who choose to wrap their summer activities with Labor Day in Yellowstone,” he said. “I would have every expectation that you will see more Wyoming, Montana and Idaho license plates in the park this weekend.”


DEAR ABBY: I have had a friend since grade school, “Dennis,” and have maintained a friendship with him throughout our lifetime. Dennis never married and lived with his parents until both died about 10 years ago. He now lives alone. Dennis does not seem to want to take care of himself hygienically, and since we work together it is becoming a serious problem. Some of the other guys don’t want to be around him. He doesn’t bathe often enough or appear to brush his teeth daily. I have tried repeatedly over the

years to talk to him about his apparent lack of cleanliness, and now that he is almost 60, it is becoming unbearable. People are starting to avoid him. Dennis is a good person and will do anything for anyone, but this lackadaisical attitude is something we can’t overlook. How can I get it across to him? He just doesn’t listen or take me seriously. IN NEED OF FRESH AIR

DEAR IN NEED: Because Dennis’ poor hygiene is affecting his relationship with his co-workers, the person to address the issue is his supervisor or boss. While Dennis may ignore or dismiss your attempts to help him, when he hears from his employers that he has to clean up his act, he may pay more attention. #####

DEAR ABBY: For the past year I have been an old friend’s lover. I’m a widow; he is married. I don’t want him to leave his wife because she has been


through a lot with him, including alcohol addiction. For the past few months he has given me excuses for not seeing me. We had gotten together on a weekly basis until recently. I have all the emails and texts we have sent each other, along with pictures and a journal I have kept throughout the relationship. Should I send them to his wife? They have had a long marriage, and he has cheated on her repeatedly for the last 25 years. I’m not ashamed or embarrassed about our affair. I just need to know if I should let his wife know what he has been doing. Yes, there is jealousy and revenge involved, and no, I haven’t talked to him about what I suspect because I’m not sure how to broach the subject. THE OTHER WOMAN IN THE SOUTHWEST

DEAR OTHER WOMAN: I know you are hurting right now, but I see no reason to punish the wife for it. I’m sure after all

these years there is nothing you could show-and-tell the woman that she isn’t already aware of — except that you, a friend, betrayed her. Leave her alone. If you want confirmation of your suspicions, take it up with your lover.

DEAR ABBY: I’m entering high school. The one I’m transferring to is K-12, and my younger sister already goes there. She warned me that all the girls wear skirts and wearing pants is, basically, social suicide. The problem is, I don’t like skirts. I never have. Should I go with the flow and wear something I’m not comfortable in, or should I wear pants and give up all hope of making friends? HUNG UP IN HOUSTON DEAR HUNG UP: Start by wearing skirts for the first week or so and let the girls get to know you. See if what your sister said is true. After that, make up your own mind.

Venice: Israeli film takes no sides in conflict Roswell Daily Record

VENICE, Italy (AP) — Israeli director Yuval Adler and Palestinian co-writer Ali Waked say they have won praise for their film “Bethlehem,” which takes a street view of the IsraeliPalestinian conflict, from people on both sides — for them evidence the film succeeded in not pressing an agenda. “People are going crazy for this film,” Adler said in an interview. “A lot of people say to us, even young people, that ‘This is the first time I see a movie that doesn’t preach to me, that doesn’t take sides, that doesn’t show us as bad or them as bad.”’ Adler called the reception in media and industry scr eenings in Israel “amazing.” “Bethlehem” has yet to be released in Israeli theaters, and made its world premiere Friday at the Venice Film Festival. Despite intense coverage

of the ongoing conflict by the world’s media, Adler believes they have found a vacuum that has been largely overlooked: how Israel recruits and runs Palestinian infor mants and more specifically the human relationship that forms between the agents and informants. The filmmakers’ axiom, Adler said, was to tell a balanced story. “I wanted to do a story about the inner workings of what we all see in the news, and we don’t really understand. What people on the street live on both sides, people who are living in the extreme center of the conflict, and to show what their lives are about,” Adler said. Waked, a longtime Palestinian affairs correspondent for an Israeli website, had previously refused many directors’ of fers to collaborate on films about the conflict,

but said it was Adler’s lack of a political agenda that persuaded him to sign on to the project. “The agenda of focusing on the simple people in between the big headlines made me want to be part of this pr oject,” Waked said. The movie focuses on the relationship between Razi, an Israeli Secr et Service of ficer, and his teenage Palestinian informant, Sanfur, whose brother is Palestinian militant leader wanted by Israel. Razi both uses and protects the teen, a situation mirrored on the other side of the border in the Palestinian territories by Badawi, the deputy to Sanfur’s militant brother. “That is the heart, the key thing we wanted to explore in this movie, the duality that is so intense,” Adler said. The filmmakers interviewed everyone fr om

Palestinian leaders, Hamas militants, Palestinian informers and Israeli intelligence agents to inform the drama — which depicts the complex relationships between Palestinian organizations and militants, as well as the surrogate father-son relationship that developed between Razi and Sanfur. “That’s what they all say. You can’t fake this stuf f. You can’t run an asset for five years and fake it. These bonds are real,” Adler said. All thr ee of the main roles are played by nonactors. Tsahi Halevy, who plays Ravi, is a musician and singer who has performed around the world. Hitham Omari, who portrays Badawi, has been a news cameraman for more than 12 years. And Shadi Mar’i, who plays Sanfur, took the role at age 17, having some experience in theater groups.

Actor Tsahi Halevi poses for portraits at the 70th edition of the Venice Film Festival held from Aug. 28 through Sept. 7, in Venice, Italy, Friday.

Mar’i said the reception of the film has given him the upper hand in discussions with his par ents over his ambition to pursue an acting career.

“We had a lot of discussions about a career, and they said you can’t find roles. Now after this film in a leading r ole, it all changed,” he said.

Hip-hop version of ‘Othello’ resonates behind bars CHICAGO (AP) — Act I, Scene 1: Four actors in well-worn coveralls and baseball caps take the stage at the county jail. They’re here to tell a tale of love, friendship, jealousy and betrayal. It’s the stuff of Shakespearean tragedy. The names and themes haven’t changed over the centuries, but the language has a modern beat: “Othello never knew, He was getting schemed on by a member of his crew.” This is “Othello-The Remix,” the Chicago Shakespeare Theater’s hip-hop version of the tragedy about a valiant Moor deceived by the villainous Iago into mistakenly believing his wife has been unfaithful. After Othello smothers his beloved Desdemona, he discovers she has been true to him and he kills himself. That’s how Shakespeare told the story 400 years ago. This modern version — performed this week for about 450 Cook County jail inmates — is a rhyming, rapping, poetic homage to the Bard. It has singing and dancing. Comic touches. Men playing women. Sexual talk. References to Eddie Murphy and James Brown. A throbbing beat, courtesy of an onstage DJ. And a contemporary plot: MC Othello is a self-made rap star turned music mogul (think Jay-Z) who decides to promote Cassio, a middle-of-the-road rapper, by releasing his next album. That infuriates the edgy rapper, Iago, who vows revenge. “This is why I hate the Moor,” he fumes. “He never lets me get my foot in the door.” Desdemona is not seen, but heard, her ethereal golden pipes occasionally filling the air. The Othello remix is the brainchild of two Chicago brothers and rappers — GQ and JQ, aka Gregory and Jeffrey Qaiyum. They wrote and directed the show, honing 40 or so drafts over eight months into a 75-minute rhymea-thon. It’s their third hip-hop translation of Shakespeare, following “The Bomb-itty of Errors” and “Funk It Up About Nothin.”’ This new Othello — originally

commissioned by Shakespeare’s Globe Theater — has been performed in England, South Korea and Chicago. Taking the play behind bars, the brothers expected the inmates would apply themes written four centuries ago to their own lives today. “The story of Othello and the way we paint it is very much of an outsider who kind of never feels like he’s at home and I think that will be pretty relatable,” JQ said before the show. “(It) really comes down to choices and repercussions and often times, poor choices. I can’t imagine that some people in there are not going to feel that.” He also points to the show’s last

words: “In a cold, dark and unforgiving system we struggle with our destiny. When the world is crumbling, emerge from the rubble and your love will surely set you free.” Watching the inmates applaud and laugh in the sweltering gym, Rick Boynton, the show’s creative producer, says he quickly knew the play had struck a chord. Othello “listened to forces outside himself that made him do really unspeakable acts,” he says. “At the end of the play he says, ‘Look what happened and heed my advice.’ ... I think the tension and the resonance of that theme in the room were incredible.” Kristy Montgomery, a 29-year-


LAS VEGAS (AP) — The British businessman who bought Liberace’s 15,000square-foot Las Vegas mansion for half a million dollars said Friday he plans to work on it relentlessly to restore it to its former glory. Martyn Ravenhill told The Associated Press from his home in Guilford, where he’s preparing to celebrate his 50th birthday on Saturday, that he’s been a huge Liberace fan all his life as well as a lover of Las Vegas. “When you live in England and it rains every day, somewhere like Las Vegas seems quite magical,” Ravenhill said. “A bit like Santa Claus.” He says he was looking at Liberace videos on YouTube when the video sharing site suggested a clip about the mansion in repossession and foreclosure. “It seems such a shock to see these videos of the sad state of the Liberace mansion,” Ravenhill said. He called real estate agent Brad Wolfe only to discover the property was under contract. That deal fell through, he says, and he flew out to see the mansion. Within 10 minutes of viewing the property he described as “just enchanting,” he decided to buy it. The two-bedroom, 10-bathroom home

was built in 1962 and sits on a half-acre lot in an aging neighborhood near the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Surrounding homes are small and sell for $80,000 to $150,000, which dragged down the value of the home, said Wolfe, who represented Ravenhill in the deal.

“I’m going to make it habitable and then start doing magic on it. It’s going to be a big project. I am totally open to volunteers,” Ravenhill said. He said he’s unsure if he will be able to open the doors to the public.

The mansion sold for $500,000 to Ravenhill, who seemed surprised by the international attention the purchase has brought. It went for $29,000 below its list price and about $3 million less than it was sold for seven years ago. “It’s not a lot of money in my mind,” said Ravenhill, who says he has properties around the world.

Liberace, whose extravagances were legendary, became the best-paid entertainer on the planet during his heyday from the 1950s to the 1970s. Ravenhill says the mansion is a piece of American history that needs to be protected.

old inmate, agrees. She came away from the play believing it had an important message: “Be careful of who you affiliate yourself with because they might not actually be your friends. They might be somebody who wants to bring you down.” It’s a lesson, she says, she’ll try to heed “because I befriend the wrong people all the time.” Julian Campbell, 19, who swayed with the beat as Iago danced his way down the aisle, found his own meaning in the story. He said it offered two lessons: “Be honest. Always think before you do.” And Kevin Fields, a third inmate, also 19, saw the play as a

cautionary tale. “You can’t affect what other people do but you can affect what you do,” he says. The show was an eye-opener in another way: “In hip-hop,” he adds, “I finally found out what Shakespeare really is.” So is it really Shakespeare when Othello briefly dons a blond wig and joins a faux backup girl singing group a la Motown to belt out “It’s a Man’s World” (shades of the James Brown classic)? And are lines such as “”Othello would not listen, He had crazy tunnel vision” a true reflection of the Bard’s greatness? Absolutely, says GQ. “Shakespeare was a master storyteller who used musical language and poetry,” he says, and the same is true of the best rappers. “So at the very basic level they’re doing the exact same thing. ... You’re using poetic devices like alliteration and repetition and onomatopoeia. ... They’re very similar art forms despite how different they tend to be judged.” The Q brothers say they have chatted with Shakespeare scholars and others who arrive at their shows skeptical and leave impressed. “We’re treating the work with respect and we think he was a genius,” GQ says. “But our philosophy is you want to live on as an art form 500 years later, you can’t do it the same way.” In fact, GQ says, if Shakespeare were around nowadays, “I think he’d be doing this. He’d be a rapper.” The Q brothers are now working on a hip-hop version of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” and plan to eventually create hip-hop translations of all of Shakespeare’s works, including “A MadSummer Night’s Dream.” They not only admire the Bard, they also think their words measure up to his standards. “Without trying to sound like we’re tooting our own horn,” GQ says, “I would like to think that at our best moments ... it’s like seeing great Shakespeare in his time.”

Henley said lawyers would appeal Friday’s ruling while continuing to argue in the Los Angeles district court for the invalidation of the California law. “This isn’t like fireworks,

nobody is being harmed by foie gras,” said Henley, who noted some California consumers continue to legally order foie gras online. The California law bars state farmers from forcefeeding birds with a tube, the procedure used to produce foie gras. It also bans sales of the delicacy. The Legislature concluded tube-feeding birds to engorge their livers is cruel. Chicago passed a similar law but later repealed it.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal appeals court ruled Friday that California can keep in place its ban on the sale of foie gras. In doing so, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals signaled that a lawsuit filed by foie gras producers seeking to invalidate the California law was on its last legs. The appeals court said the producers of the delicacy — the fatty liver of a force-fed goose or duck — “failed to raise a serious question that they are likely to succeed on the merits” of the lawsuit. The producers wanted the appeals court to lift the ban while their lawsuit is under consideration in a Los Angeles federal court. The three-judge appeals panel rejected the producers’ arguments that the ban illegally interferes with commerce and is too vaguely worded, among other claims, indicating the court’s doubts about the underlying lawsuit in the process. The ruling upheld a lower court decision, which expressed similar skepticism about the lawsuit filed last year by Canadian and

Why gold is making a comeback BY STEVE ROTHWELL AP MARKETS WRITER Gold is having a summer revival. The price of gold touched $1,420 an ounce this week, a three-and-a-half month high, as escalating tensions in the Middle East, volatile currency markets and renewed demand for jewelry in China and India pushed prices higher. Gold has rebounded 15 percent to $1,396 an ounce since sinking to $1,212, its lowest level in almost three years, on June 27. A gain of 20 percent or more would put the metal back in a bull market. Gold’s resurgence follows a rough ride this year. Gold slumped 4.8 percent in the first three months of 2013 as the outlook for the economy improved while inflation remained subdued. For many years prior to that, large investors, like hedge funds, bought the metal as a way to protect their investments against rising prices and a slumping dollar. They feared that the Federal Reserve’s stimulus program could cause prices to rise. But inflation remained subdued and that reduced the need to buy gold. Also, signs in January that the dollar was strengthening diminished the appeal of owning gold. Then in April, the bottom fell out. A proposal that Cyprus sell some of its gold reserves to support its banks rattled traders, prompting concern that Spain, Italy and other weak European economies might also sell and flood the market. Gold plunged by $140 an ounce, or nine percent, on April 15 as investors unloaded their holdings. That was the biggest oneday decline in more than 30 years. While the price of gold is still down 17 percent this year, the metal is on the rise. Here are the factors driving its comeback: A little insurance One of the reasons people buy gold is that it offers an alternative to more traditional financial assets, says Mike McGlone, director of research at ETF Securities, a provider of commodity-based exchangetraded funds. When financial markets get jittery, investors often buy gold because it is considered one of the safest assets that can easily be converted to cash. As the stock market soared this year, rising as much as 20 percent, investors had less need to hold gold. That has changed the last four weeks. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index has lost 4 percent since reaching an all-time high of 1,709.67 on August 2. Traders are concerned about when and by how much the Fed will pare back on its stimulus, a major driver behind the market’s rally. Strife in Egypt and Syria has also reminded investors that it’s a dangerous world out there: wars can spread and oil prices can spike, hurting economies and

stock markets. Investors want to add back a little insurance to their portfolios these days. “If we lived in a perfect world, we would not need gold,” says McGlone. “But since we don’t, we do need something that is the ultimate store of value.” Investors don’t need to buy gold bars or coins to invest in the metal. Exchange-traded funds are investments that are similar to mutual funds. Both can be bought and sold on exchanges. Some of these funds, such as ETF’s Physical Swiss Gold Shares and SPDR’s Gold Shares, allow investors to buy into trusts that invest directly in gold.

Haven from stormy currencies The Fed appears close to reducing its $85 billion in monthly bond purchases, and that has stirred up currency prices worldwide, particularly in emerging markets. Investors had previously borrowed in dollars at low rates and then invested in faster growing economies in Asia and Latin America. Now, that trend is reversing. U.S. interest rates have started to climb in anticipation of the Fed’s reduced stimulus. Investors are selling their emerging-market holdings and converting the proceeds back into dollars. The value of the Indian rupee against the dollar has plunged by more than 11 percent in August on concerns that surging oil prices are pushing the country toward an economic crisis. The Indonesian rupiah has also slumped. When currency markets become volatile, investors worldwide look to invest in safe assets that will hold their value, says Dan Heckman, a national investment consultant who specializes in commodities at US Bank Wealth Management. “Gold does fit that role,” he says.

Jewelry buyers Speculators like hedge funds were behind the surge in gold over the last decade. That sent gold to a peak of $1,900 an ounce in September 2011. It also priced out a large part of the market — jewelry buyers in countries like India and China. In those countries, people have traditionally bought jewelry as a way to invest in gold. When prices slumped this spring, though, those buyers jumped back in because people in those countries bought more gold. The World Gold Council, a trade group for gold mining companies, says in a report on Aug. 15 that consumer demand for gold surged 87 percent in China in the second quarter, compared with the same period a year earlier. Demand in India climbed by 71 percent. Gold still remains far below its inflationadjusted peak. It rose as high as $873 an ounce on Jan. 21, 1980. Adjusted for price increases that would be worth $2,475 in 2013.

Chimpanzee wins 1st prize in art contest C6 Sunday, September 1, 2013

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A painting by a 37-year-old Louisiana primate who applies color with his tongue instead of a brush has been deemed the finest chimpanzee art in the land. Brent, a retired laboratory animal, was the top votegetter in an online chimp art contest organized by the Humane Society of the United States, which announced the results Thursday. He won $10,000 for the Chimp Haven sanctuary in northwest Louisiana. A Chimp Haven spokeswoman said Brent was unavailable for comment Thursday. “I think he’s asleep,” Ashley Gordon said. But as the society said on its website, “The votes are in, so let the pant hooting begin!” — pant hooting being the characteristic call


of an excited chimp. Five other sanctuaries around the country competed, using paintings created during “enrichment sessions,” which can include any of a wide variety of activities and playthings. Chimpanzee researcher Jane Goodall chose her favorite from photographs she was sent. That painting, by Cheetah, a male at Save the Chimps in Fort Pierce, Fla., won $5,000 as Goodall’s choice and another $5,000 for winning second place in online voting, Humane Society spokeswoman Nicole Ianni said. Ripley from the Center for Great Apes in Wauchula, Fla., won third place and $2,500. More than 27,000 people voted, Ianni said in a news release. The organization is not giving vote totals “to

keep the focus on the positive work of the sanctuaries and not necessarily the ‘winner,”’ she said in an email. The sanctuaries care for chimpanzees retired from research, entertainment and the pet trade. Chimp Haven is the national sanctuary for those retired from federal research. Other submitted paintings were by Jamie, a female at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest in Cle Elum, Wash.; Jenny, a female at Primate Rescue Center in Nicholasville, Ky.; and Patti, a female at Chimps Inc. in Bend, Ore. A profile of Brent on the Humane Society’s website says he has lived at Chimp Haven since 2006, is protective of an even older chimp at the sanctuary and “loves to laugh and play.” It continues, “Brent paints

only with his tongue. His unique approach and style, while a little unorthodox, results in beautiful pieces of art.” Cathy Willis Spraetz, Chimp Haven’s president and CEO, said she chose a painting by Brent partly because of that unusual method. She said she later held a canvas up to the mesh of his indoor cage so she could watch him at work. Some other chimps use brushes or point to the colors they want on the canvas, but Brent comes up to smush pre-applied blobs of child-safe tempera paints with his tongue, she said. “If we handed the canvas to them where it was on the inside, they might not want to hand it back,” she said. “They might throw it around and step on it.”

New Polish movie honors Lech Walesa Some school districts WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Solidarity leader Lech Walesa has largely fallen from grace in the eyes of his Polish countrymen. Oscar-winning filmmaker Andrzej Wajda says he wants to r estor e his longtime friend as Poland’s hero in his latest movie — which he calls the hardest of his life. “Walesa: Man of Hope” is the last part of the Polish cineaste’s trilogy about how worker disillusionment with communism helped to bring about the system’s demise. It shows how Walesa grew from a regular worker at a time of violent food pr otests to a charismatic strike leader who negotiated with communist authorities and finally to national hero and international statesman who won the 1983 Nobel Peace Prize. The movie has its world premiere next week at the 70th Venice Film Festival, out of competition. Meanwhile, Wajda told The Associated Press in an interview that he is laying the gr oundwork for scr eenings in his homeland, planned for October. “I think that this false image of Lech as the source of trouble and defeat must not be spr ead ar ound,” said the 87-year -old Wajda. “No one seems to remember anymore that he brought us freedom.” Walesa’s reputation was badly tar nished in Poland during an authoritarian 1990-1995 presidency in which he clashed with consecutive governments, alienated friends and advisers and angered the Poles with welfare promises that he could not keep. He has also faced accusations of collaboration with the communists, which he denied and which have been dismissed by a special screening court. Amid the controversies, Wajda said he felt a need to present the true Walesa to the world — and remind people of the Solidarity leader’s enduring legacy. “I am an old man, an old film director, and this might be the last film in my life,” he said. “But I would not want to part with life without having made this movie. This is my duty.” In 1995 Walesa bitterly lost his re-election bid to former communist Aleksander Kwasniewski, and has withdrawn from active politics. He lectur es ar ound the world about Poland’s peaceful transformation to democracy, culminating in June 1989 general elections. That vote paved the way for similar change in other countries of the communist bloc. Wajda, who received a lifetime achievement Academy Award in 2000, said he wanted his film to show his “admiration” for the man. In Poland, Wajda’s friendship with Walesa has raised questions about how objective the filmmaker can be in creating any movie about the

Solidarity leader’s life. The film ends before the start of Walesa’s controversial presidency. Wajda met the electrician Walesa during the 1980 wage and labor rights strike at the Gdansk Shipyard, where he successfully led thousands of pr otesters and founded the free Solidarity union, rising to be the nation’s independence leader. Wajda still believes that Walesa is the “hero of our times” — and wants his movie to help young people appr eciate Poland’s history. “My aim was to make a movie about a people’s hero, a politician who came from the social lows and rose to his position purely and only thanks to his own will, his own strength, his own energy, his intelligence.” But he conceded that it was the “hardest movie that I ever made” because it tells a story that is still in the making, with the hero still alive and able to comment on how he was portrayed. Neither Walesa nor his family were consulted during the making of the film. But Walesa recently saw it in a private screening and

VOIGHT WORKED FOR SCALE FOR ‘MIDNIGHT COWBOY’ ROLE NEW YORK (AP) — It was Jon Voight’s portrayal of male prostitute Joe Buck in the 1969 film “Midnight Cowboy” that put him on the path to becoming an acting legend. Now he says he was paid a pittance for the part. Voight says that he wanted the role so badly he told his agent, “I said,

‘Tell them I’ll do this part for nothing.”’ The actor says to his surprise, “they took me at my word and they gave me minimum for ‘Midnight Cowboy.”’ Voight spoke Wednesday as he was promoting his film “Getaway” co-starring Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez that opens Aug. 30 and “Ray Donovan,” the Showtime series he

his reaction was “good,” Wajda said — albeit with a hint of hesitation. Contacted at his office in Gdansk, Walesa said the movie was “excellent, very well done, but there is a problem with me.” “Wajda based (his movie) on the idea that only a conceited man, a supercilious one could have won. But I was not so haughty,” Walesa told the AP. “If I had been so, then workers would not have carried me on their shoulders.” Wajda’s two previous movies in the series about Poland’s workers’ discontent with communist rule were the 1975 “Man of Marble,” and the 1981 “Man of Iron,” — about the rise of Solidarity, with Walesa appearing in it — which won the Palme d‘Or at the Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for an Academy Award. The Venice festival was chosen for the latest movie’s premiere because it was there that, in 1957, Wajda won international renown for his out-of-competition movie “Ashes and Diamonds.” In 1998, Wajda received the festival’s Golden Lion for lifetime achievement.

appears in opposite Liev Schreiber. The Oscar- and Emmywinning actor says the studio United Artists “even sent me a $14.73 coffee shop charge,” for meals his last day of shooting for the film in Texas. Voight also says he persuaded co-star Dustin Hoffman to try out for the role of Enrico “Ratso”

Rizzo after the two became friends doing an of fBroadway show. They auditioned for the movie together.

Looking back, Voight says, “It was the worst.” But Voight says he had no regrets. “I knew what it meant. It was going to give me a career, and I was right.”

BY CAROLYN THOMPSON ASSOCIATED PRESS After just one year, some schools around the country are dropping out of the healthier new federal lunch program, complaining that so many students turned up their noses at meals packed with whole grains, fruits and vegetables that the cafeterias were losing money. Federal officials say they don’t have exact numbers but have seen isolated reports of schools cutting ties with the $11 billion National School Lunch Program, which reimburses schools for meals served and gives them access to lowerpriced food. Districts that rejected the program say the reimbursement was not enough to offset losses from students who began avoiding the lunch line and bringing food from home or, in some cases, going hungry. “Some of the stuff we had to offer, they wouldn’t eat,” said Catlin, Ill., Superintendent Gary Lewis, whose district saw a 10 to 12 percent drop in lunch sales, translating to $30,000 lost under the program last year. “So you sit there and watch the kids, and you know they’re hungry at the end of the day, and that led to some behavior and some lack of attentiveness.” In upstate New York, a few districts have quit the program, including the Schenectady-area Burnt Hills Ballston Lake system, whose five lunchrooms ended the year $100,000 in the red. Near Albany, Voorheesville Superintendent Teresa Thayer Snyder said her district lost $30,000 in the first three months. The program didn’t even make it through the school year after students repeatedly complained about the small portions and apples and pears went from the tray to the trash untouched. Districts that leave the program are free to develop their own guidelines. Voorheesville’s chef began serving such dishes as salad topped with flank steak and crumbled cheese, pasta with chicken and mushrooms, and a panini with chicken, red peppers and cheese. In Catlin, soups and fish sticks will return to the menu this year, and the hamburger lunch will come with yogurt and a banana — not one or the other, like last year. Nationally, about 31 million students participated in the guidelines that took effect last fall under the 2010 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act. Dr. Janey Thornton, deputy undersecretary for USDA’s Food, Nutrition and Consumer Services, which oversees the program, said she is aware of reports of districts quitting but is still optimistic about the program’s long-term prospects. “The vast majority of schools across the country are meeting the updated meal standards successfully, which is so important to help all our nation’s children lead healthier lives,” Thornton said. “Many of these children have never seen or tasted some of the fruits and vegetables that are being served before, and it takes a while to adapt and learn,” she said. The agency had not determined how many districts have dropped out, Thornton said, cautioning that “the numbers that have threatened to drop and the ones that actually have dropped are quite different.” The School Nutrition Association found that 1 percent of 521 district nutrition directors surveyed over the summer planned to drop out of the program in the 2013-14 school year and about 3 percent were considering the move. Not every district can afford to quit. The National School Lunch Program provides cash reimbursements for each meal served: about $2.50 to $3 for free and reduced-priced meals and about 30 cents for full-price meals. That takes the option of quitting off the table for schools with large numbers of poor youngsters. The new guidelines set limits on calories and salt, phase in more whole grains and require that fruit and vegetables be served daily. A typical elementary school meal under the program consisted of whole-wheat cheese pizza, baked sweet potato fries, grape tomatoes with low-fat ranch dip, applesauce and 1 percent milk. In December, the Agriculture Department, responding to complaints that kids weren’t getting enough to eat, relaxed the 2-ounce-per-day limit on grains and meats while keeping the calorie limits. At Wallace County High in Sharon Springs, Kan., football player Callahan Grund said the revision helped, but he and his friends still weren’t thrilled by the calorie limits (750-850 for high school) when they had hours of calorie-burning practice after school. The idea of dropping the program has come up at board meetings, but the district is sticking with it for now. “A lot of kids were resorting to going over to the convenience store across the block from school and kids were buying junk food,” the 17-year-old said. “It was kind of ironic that we’re downsizing the amount of food to cut down on obesity but kids are going and getting junk food to fill that hunger.” To make the point, Grund and his schoolmates starred last year in a music video parody of the pop hit “We Are Young.” Instead, they sang, “We Are Hungry.” It was funny, but Grund’s mother, Chrysanne Grund, said her anxiety was not. “I was quite literally panicked about how we would get enough food in these kids during the day,” she said, “so we resorted to packing lunches most days.”

‘Child of God’ star slept in caves preparing role

Roswell Daily Record

V E N IC E , I ta ly (A P ) — Scott Haze says he spent three cold months living in the mountains of Tennessee, subsisting on one piece of fish and one apple a d ay , an d sl e e pi n g i n caves to prepare for the role of serial killer Lester Ballard in the film adaptaof C o r m ac t io n McCarthy’s novel ‘’Child of God.” ‘’I knew that this was a r o le t h at I h a d t o g o t o crazy extreme lengths,” Haze said in an interview S a t u r d ay ah ea d of t h e film’s world premiere in competition at the Venice Film Festival. Haze’s Lester Ballar d d es c en d s i n to v i o le nc e after being kicked off his family’s land and losing his parents, moving outside the social order into caves where he abandons himself to extreme degradation. McCarthy’s character was inspired by reallif e k il l er a n d b o d y sn at c h er E d G e i n , w h o also was the basis for the Norman Bates character in ‘’Psycho,” and Leather-

face of ‘’The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” To prepare for the Ball a r d r ol e , H a z e sa i d h e dropped from 195 pounds to 150 pounds (88 kilograms to 68 kilograms) on the apple-and-fish diet while living in a cabin in the Tennessee mountains, sleeping at times in caves often without a sleeping bag until the December temperatures dropped too low. ‘’I slept in caves many n i g h t s w i th b at s a ll a r o un d . I t w as c r a zy,” Haze said. ‘’I let everything go, just hung out w i t h t h e h il l b i l l ie s a nd stayed as isolated as possible.” The only thing he took with him ‘’from society”: an i- Po d l o a de d w i th Eminem music. Director James Franco said Haze took off for the hills without consulting the director and showed up to shoot not only looking the part — undernouri s h ed , r a tt y b e ar d a n d disheveled — but acting it. Haze ‘’didn’t r eally

talk to anyone, stayed to himself, and was like that f or t h e wh ole sh o ot ,” Franco told reporters. The director said audie nc es m ay t hi nk h e ‘’found some maniac in the woods and shot him. But it is Scott giving the performance of a lifetime.” Haze said he managed to stay ‘’in the mind-state” while filming, conceding he was ‘’not in this world.” H e di dn ’t c hec k h i s phone, text messages or even how his beloved Lakers were doing. ‘’I thought, at the end of the day, we’d have a great m ov ie a nd Jam es a nd I would hug each other and say we did it.” Haze said. He hopes people will look back on ‘’Child of God” as film as pivotal as ‘’T axi Driver,” ‘’which was really shocking back in the day. And we get to say, ‘Hey, we did something special, and I think we did.”’ Haze and Franco, longt im e co ll abo rat or s, a r e part of a clutch of young artists in Los Angeles who are not just acting, but

writing and directing films and theater. Ha ze sai d h e det ox ed from the Ballard role by directing a documentary about wrestler Lee Kemp, who missed his shot at the Olympics due to the U.S. boycott of the 1980 M o sco w G am e s, an d recently built a theater in Los Angeles and started a film festival to help young actors and directors get a start. Franco, a prolific actor, director and writer, also is app ea rin g in Ven ice in ‘’Palo Alto,” based on a book he wrote about teens in his home town, directed by Gia Coppola. Though Haze has had film writing and directing credits and appeared in about dozen films, he isn’t sure if he’s had his breakthrough. ‘’Maybe James Franco. Maybe,” he said. ‘’It was big. You asked me, what is my big moment in actin g. It ’s t h is. I t’ s t h i s movie.”

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Second-ranked Ohio State got of f to a quick start. After that, it was a bit scary. Braxton Miller threw two touchdown passes before fighting leg cramps and Jordan Hall ran for two more scores to lead the Buckeyes to a 40-20 victory over Buffalo on Saturday in the season opener for both teams. The Buckeyes, striving for a crisper start from coach Urban Meyer’s debut in 2012, led 23-0 after the first quarter before the Bulls made things interest-

ing. Joe Licata threw two TD passes and linebacker Kahlil Mack retur ned a Miller interception 45 yards to make it 30-20 in the third quarter. Miller was sidelined a second time with cramps and sub Kenny Guiton promptly tossed a 21-yard TD pass to Chris Fields. Hall had a career -high 159 yards rushing, scoring on runs of 37 and 49 yards. Miller was 15 of 22 passing for 178 yards with TDs of 47 yards to Devin Smith and 7 yards to Chris Fields. He also ran for 77

yards on 17 attempts, although he twice went to the sideline with cramps. Licata completed 19 of 32 passes for 185 yards and two scores with one interception, with Branden Oliver gaining 73 yards on 26 carries for the Bulls, who were playing Ohio State for the first time ever. Meyer had stressed all week that he wanted his team to get off to a better start than they did a year ago when they trailed 7-0 in the first quarter against Miami (Ohio). Ohio State was in control after its first three posses-

sions. Miller hit Devin Smith on a 47-yard scoring pass on the fourth offensive play of the season. Then Miller found Fields on a 7-yard scoring pass. The only surprise was that the Buckeyes lined up in an unbalanced line on both conversion tries, with only three players close to the ball. Guiton, the holder, kept on the first twopoint try and then hit Hall for the second conversion behind a mass of blockers at left end. An audible groan could be heard from the crowd of 103,980 when Meyer elected to have Drew Basil score on a more conventional point-after kick after Hall burst untouched through a gaping hole off left tackle. As good as that first 15 minutes was — 216 yards of offense, a big lead and Buffalo looking thoroughly defeated — the next two quarters showed that the Bulls were far from dead. The Buckeyes failed on a Hall run on fourth and 1 near midfield, with Meyer chewing out his offensive line when they returned to the bench. After Ron Tanner picked off a tipped Licata pass for Ohio State, speedy freshman tailback Dontre Wilson gave it right back on the next play when he was hit by linebacker Blake Bean and Buffalo’s Derek Brim recovered. The always expressive Meyer hung his head on the sideline. Licata needed just three plays to cover the 44 yards, hitting three consec-

utive passes with help on a late hit against Ohio State cornerback Armani Reeves. Reeves was starting in place of All-Big Ten standout Bradley Roby, suspended for the opener after a bar skirmish in Bloomington, Ind., in July. The Buckeyes were also without starting tailback and 2012 leading scorer Carlos Hyde (listed as a person of interest in an alleged assault against a female) and his backup, Rod Smith (who sat out due to an unspecified violation of team rules). Licata flipped a pass over the middle to tight end Matt Weiser, who rumbled into the end zone from 16 yards out. Four plays later, Buffalo quieted the crowd when Miller tossed a short pass directly to the Bulls’ Mack, considered one of the top linebackers in the nation, and he outran intended receiver Wilson into the end zone. Two cracks at the two-point conversion, thanks to a defensive interference penalty, failed and the Bulls had cut the gap to 23-13. But just as quickly, the Buckeyes regrouped and took control. Wilson redeemed himself for the turnover by taking the kickoff back 51 yards. On first down, Hall bolted through another massive hole at left tackle and there was nobody on the second level to stop him as he raced 37 yards. Buffalo threatened again in the third quarter, with Licata hitting Alex Neutz on a 10-yard scoring pass,

Buckeyes roll early, hang on to beat Buffalo, 40-20

ARIES (March 21-April 19)  You often face a difficult associate or relative and just accept the situation for what it is. This person seems to be changing, as does your perception of him or her. This transformation might not be easy for this individual, so try to be sensitive. Tonight: A must appearance. This Week: Others come to you for ideas, and you help make them work. TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Make a call to a dear friend or loved one. Whether on the phone or in person, you generally seem to be spending time catching up on others' news. In this process, you might notice that a topic is left out. Know that this is intentional. Tonight: Peace is at home. This Week: You flourish, no matter what the setting. GEMINI (May 21-June 20)      Keep a conversation moving. If you have your way, you will schedule getting together with friends and/or family over dinner. You have a lot that you might want to do during the day.


Don't lose sight of your budget. Tonight: Listen to a friend's funny rendition of recent events. This Week: Return calls and schedule meetings. CANCER (June 21-July 22)  You might have plans, but you could feel as if you'd like to change or add a new element to your plans. You also might worry about someone else's reaction, should you decide to cancel your plans altogether. Weigh the pros and cons before taking action. Tonight: Relax at home. This Week: You might have a lot of opinions from Wednesday on. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)  Plans could change, and you will need to flex. Handle whatever interferes with your day, even if it means going to work. If you want to lounge around, do that. Later in the day, the Moon will enter your sign, and you will want to be out and about. Tonight: Act like

you are the lead actor. This Week: Claim your power. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Use the daylight hours to the max. You could be taken aback by a loved one. This person needs time, which will require you to adjust your schedule. Don't just look at the moment -look at the long term, too. Stay focused in order to make good choices. Tonight: Slow down. This Week: Not until Wednesday do you feel like your normal self. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  A must appearance, perhaps involving an older relative or friend, could keep you unusually busy. Don't forget about a partner, as you might need to adjust your plans to include him or her. Flex as much as you can, and you'll be able to relax later. Tonight: Enjoy the moment. This Week: Zero in on a particular cause either Monday or Tuesday.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Seek out an unusual Sunday activity, and you will be much happier as a result. Be willing to adapt and make an appropriate change.

This Week: Others naturally look up to you to carry a project to success. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You recognize the need to update your budget, but you might not be sure where to make cutbacks. You'll want to share some of your questions with a partner or loved one. Together, you will come up with a valid approach. Tonight: Off to the movies or to a favorite hangout. This Week: Think "big picture." CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)     Your popularity might result in many calls and invitations to what otherwise would be a relaxing day. Seek out a dear friend you enjoy being with. Pressure is high in your life right now; you do not need to add to it. Make it OK to screen calls. Tonight: Out with a favorite friend. This Week: Relate to others directly.

cutting the lead to 30-20. The next series was almost a disaster for the Buckeyes. Miller went down without being tackled and left the field, causing some concern before it was determined he had cramps. He returned a play later only to be sacked by Mack and then fumbling at his own 1. But Mack was called for a hands-to-the-facemask penalty which nullified the turnover and instead gave the Buckeyes a first down at their 37. Miller went to the sideline again and Guiton tossed the scoring pass to Fields to push the lead to 17 points. Basil had a field goal for the only points of the fourth quarter. Hall, making just the seventh start of his five years at Ohio State, rushed for 126 yards on 12 carries in the opening half. The game was played in high humidity and temperatures in the mid-80s. R yan Shazier, the only returning starter among the front seven on defense for Ohio State, also missed more than a quarter with leg cramps. Under somewhat similar conditions two years earlier, dozens of fans were overcome by the heat and Ohio Stadium’s medical services were overwhelmed. This time, water stations were set up at several locations and there was an increase in medical personnel. Ohio State stretched the nation’s longest win streak to 13 in a row.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You might have been putting off a project for too long. You will notice that there is quite a difference in how you feel once this particular task is done. Make plans as soon as you know when you will be free. Getting together with friends is natural for you. Tonight: Don't be alone. This Week: Others dominate, and they want to be acknowledged. Let it be. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)  Your playfulness around some and your seductiveness around others will put you in high demand. Visit with different people and catch up on news, as it reminds you of the strength of your relationships. Tonight: Personalize your playfulness. Be with the one you love. This Week: Push as hard as you can Monday and Tuesday. You'll like the results. BORN TODAY Singer Gloria Estefan (1957), musician Barry Gibb (1946), boxer Rocky Marciano (1923)
