Fifty-three brightly colored hot air balloons dotted the Roswell skyline early Saturday morning as pilots and balloon crews from all over the Southwest partook in the 24th annual Old Timers Balloon Rally weekend festivities. Hundreds of spectators who woke up at dawn’s first light to see the balloons launch at the Wool Bowl Sports Complex Russ DeKay Soccer Field watched in wonder as the lime green Alien Inflation, the rainbow-colored Skittles, and the bumblebee shaped Joelly, Baby Bee, to name a few, took flight. As the adults drifted away, a few lucky children went on short rides while the balloon, Pepper mint Patty TU, was still tied to the ground with ropes, something called “tethering.” “Who’s next?” the balloon

Some 2,500 sunscreenslathered festival-goers showed up for some good
ol’ fashioned fun in the sun — fair food, facepainting, vintage car shows, tug-of-war tournaments and more — at Cahoon Park, Saturday afternoon, for the 15th
annual city of Roswell’s Party on the River/Fiesta del Rio. And that was before country music star and the winner of NBC’s “Nashville Star” Chris Young performed. “We expect that number to triple,” Laurie Jerge, recreation superintendent for Roswell Parks and Recreation, said. “He’s the biggest name we've had in years.” Young dazzled adoring fans by singing hit singles like “Drinkin’ Me Lonely” and “You’re Gonna Love Me” on the main stage late Saturday night. The afternoon, however, was all about the vintage car show and fundraiser across the street from the park hosted by the Roswell Valley Vintage Motor Car Club. “We came to show off our cars and to mingle with good people,” Kenny Forrest, of the VVMCC,
Candid videos show rare view of unkempt bin Laden
WASHINGTON (AP) — From a shabby, makeshift office, he ran a global terrorist empire. The world’s most wanted man watched newscasts of himself from a tiny television perched atop a rickety old desk cluttered with wires. For years, the world only saw the 54-year-old Osama bin Laden in the rare propaganda videos that trickled out, the ones portraying him as a charismatic religious figure unfazed by being the target of a world-
wide manhunt. On Saturday, the U.S. released a handful of videos, selected to show bin Laden in a much more candid, unflattering light. In the short clips, bin Laden appears hunched and tired, seated on the floor, watching television wrapped in a wool blanket and wearing a knit cap. Outtakes of his propaganda tapes show that they were heavily scripted affairs. He dyed and trimmed his beard for the cameras, then shot and

reshot his remarks until the timing and lighting were just right. The videos were among the evidence seized by Navy SEALs after a pre-dawn raid Monday that killed bin Laden in his walled Pakistani compound. The movies, along with computer disks, thumb drives and handwritten notes, reveal that bin Laden was still actively involved in planning and directing al-

ISLAMABAD (AP) — Outraged Pakistanis stepped up calls Saturday for top gover nment of ficials to resign following the daring American helicopter raid that killed Osama bin Laden and embarrassed the nation. Some of the sharpest language was directed at the ar my and intelligence chiefs, a rare challenge to arguably the two most powerful men in the country, who are more accustomed to being feared than pub-

That claim has met with skepticism from U.S. officials, who have repeatedly criticized Pakistan for failing to crack down on Islamist militants. But with anti-American sentiment already high in the South Asian nation,
many Pakistani citizens were more incensed by the fact that the country’s military was powerless to stop the American raid. Some lawmakers and analysts expressed hope that civilian leaders can seize on this anger to chip away at the military’s power, but others doubt that even an embarrassment of this scale will shake the status quo. “It was an attack on our See PAKISTAN, Page A3

Agency OKs Intel permit revision RCL helps Working Mothers ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The New Mexico Environment Department has revised the air quality permit for Intel to allow the company to install additional pollution control equipment at its Rio Rancho plant. It would position the plant for expansion to manufacture new technology if Intel of ficials choose New Mexico for future investment, but critics say Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration is ignoring citizen concerns to bring in business. Martinez and Rio Rancho’s mayor, Thomas Swisstack, said the permit update will bring in jobs while protecting the environment. Intel currently employs about 3,300 people in Rio Ran-
Elephant Butte water to flow beginning 5/31
LAS CRUCES (AP) — The Elephant Butte Irrigation District directors say the 2011 irrigation season will start May 31 for farmers in the Hatch, Rincon and Mesilla Valleys of southern New Mexico. This year’s irrigation allotment will begin with 4 acre-inches of water, based on what the district has stored in Elephant Butte Lake. In normal years, farmers in the district receive around 2 acre-foot of water. An acre-foot is about 326,000 gallons, enough to meet the annual water needs of one to two U.S. households. District officials blame a lingering drought, and say the spring runoff is still uncertain. They say the irrigation district cannot allot one drop more until it reaches the reservoir.
cho. The company has no immediate plans to expand in Rio Rancho. Intel’s corporate affairs director in the Southwest, Jami Grindatto, has said, however, that having the permit is essential for any future investments. The governor took partial credit for speeding up the permit process. In a statement emailed to the Albuquerque Jour nal, Martinez said she worked with state officials on the process. Corrales resident Lynne Kinis, who launched a petition asking the Environment Department to deny the permit revision, called it a political move that “has nothing to do with reality, with health or air quality.” gover ning Per mits
emissions from Intel’s plant have been revised multiple times since the plant opened in 1981. Intel has said it plans to install several thermal oxidizers, ammonia treatment systems and a bulk solvent waste treatment system. The company submitted its permit request to the Environment Department in February. Several business organizations, including the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce, launched petitions in support of the request. “This (approval) sends a message that New Mexico should be watched because of how quickly the state acted on this,” said Gary Tonjes, president of Albuquerque Economic Development Corp.
Day Nursery with $8K donation JONATHAN ENTZMINGER RECORD STAFF WRITER
Roswell Community League made an $8,000 donation to Working Mothers Day Nursery, Thursday. “It’s going to help equip our new classrooms so that we can serve at least 30 more children,” Kathleen Alonzo, the nursery’s director, said. “To those 30 more children, it’s extremely important.” According to Alonzo, the donation will also help the non-profit daycare absorb cuts in state funding. The donation was made possible through RCL’s silent purse auction benefit and fundraiser for Working Mothers on April 14, at Pecos Flavors Winery. About 100 people partici-

Robert Gonzalez, 32, is wanted on federal charges of felon in possession of a firearm. He is described as 6 feet tall, weight 140 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. People having information on the whereabouts of Gonzalez are asked to contact Crime Stoppers, 888-594TIPS (8477). Callers may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward.
Contreras gets 37 months Roswell resident Eric Contreras, 27, was sentenced to 37 months in prison, Thursday, in Las Cruces Federal Court. He was charged as a felon in possession of a firearm. Contreras has been in federal custody since his arrest on Aug. 12, 2010. He will serve a further three-year term of supervised release after he completes his prison sentence. The charge resulted after Roswell Police Department stopped a vehicle on May 24, 2010, for a traffic violation. Contreras was a passenger. He had in his possession a loaded Smith & Wesson .357 revolver and a loaded Charter Arms .38 caliber revolver. According to the indictment, Contreras was prohibited from possessing firearms because he was convicted in 2006 of pos-
pated in the event. “Some of our older (league) members that used to work at the Working Day Mothers Nursery ... showed up. It was neat to see some of the ladies that really were original,” Megan Rhodes, RCL president, said. For the RCL, the donation is special, considering its history with Working Mothers. In 1958, a group of RCL women helped found the center. According to Rhodes, RCL wanted to “refocus” its attention with the donation. “We felt that we hadn’t really donated in a couple of years, and wanted to make sure that this organization stayed afloat ... we definitely saw a purpose for a donation,” Rhodes said.
Working Day Mothers Nursery, a United Way Agency, has been in Roswell since 1958 and at its current location, 500 E. Bland St., for 20 years. The non-profit organization helps assist low income families with daycare and educational services during the day. “All of the funding that we receive through United Way is used to provide scholarships for families,” Alonzo said. “We provide childcare services, but we believe that we provide more than that. As we’re teaching the children, we’re teaching them social skills, nutritional skills — hopefully things that they’ll carry into their life in a positive way.”

RPD busts Mendoza-Ramon Officers of the Roswell Police Department arrested Rafael Mendoza-Ramon, 38, after receiving a report of shots fired. Mendoza-Ramon was discharging the weapon in his backyard at 13 N. Wells St. “He was drunk and shooting his gun in the air,” said RPD spokesman Officer Travis Holley. He was charged with negligent use of a deadly weapon, tampering with evidence, resisting arrest and felon in possession of a firearm. Felon in possession of a firearm is a fourth-degree felony. Tampering with evidence is also a fourthdegree felony.
Rafael Mendoza-Ramon could face up to 10 years in prison and up to $25,000 in punitive fines. He is currently being held at Chaves County Detention Center on a $5,000 surety bond. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement is investigating whether MendozaRamon will be returned to Mexico after he has faced charges here.

lanes Flying Garden, a 90,000-cubic-foot Lindstrand balloon, say they come to the rally every year because of the weather, and that they keep coming back because of the good people in Roswell. “It’s the only event I haven’t missed since I got my pilot’s license,” Mark said. He says he first came to the rally about 20 years ago, in 1990. Organizers say the rally went off without a hitch, although one balloon could not get off the ground. The owner of Too Much Fun, Kerry Rainey, of San Angelo, Texas, says his disappointment was lessened when a group of curious bystanders took an interest in his balloon and crew. He taught them the basics of how to fly a balloon and also how to inflate and deflate the aircraft. “See how the top came out?” he asked the group. “We lost our air, but I think

owner in the basket, Jim Moore, of Roswell, bellowed to a circle of kiddies who either screamed in delight or hid behind their parents. Other children ran around trying to collect as many balloon cards, similar to baseball cards, as they could. The owner of Skittles, Phil Cathey, of Roswell, has been an FAA certified air balloon pilot since 1985 and called the weather on Saturday “ideal” for air ballooning. “It’s really amazing on a day like today — calm wind, easy landing. You can’t beat it,” he said. Organizers say the rally attracted pilots and teams from Colorado, Texas, all across New Mexico and even England.

said, noting that the proceeds benefit local charitable organizations and Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell. Muscle car aficionados perused the long line of automobiles, occasionally peeking under the hoods or whistling in admiration. A crowd gathered around a fire engine red 1970 Chevrolet Super Sport, originally owned by Danny Garcia, of Ruidoso, and later inherited by his son, Daniel Garcia Jr. At the base of the car were framed picture collages of Garcia, a graduate of Ruidoso High School, and his highschool sweetheart and wife, Lillian, a former cheerleader at Hondo High School, next to the car at their high school prom in the ’70s. “I took her to the junior and senior prom in that car,” Garcia said proudly with a huge smile. One message in the collage read, “Still in love with the beautiful cheerleader and the wicked Super Sport.” Garcia added that the car sat in the garage for 30 years until his son completely restored it in 2007. Garcia Jr. is wheelchair-bound after he was shot in 2003, and says it’s his goal to drive it one day without hand controls. “We’ve changed a lot
over the years,” Garcia Sr. said, “but the car is still the same.” Another car that drew attention was the maroon 1967 Ford LTD that was featured in the 2009 film Men Who Stare At Goats. The two-door hardtop was one of four being auctioned by the Artesia Elks Lodge to benefit local charities and to finance college scholarships. “We’re just having a good time,” John Roark, of the Elks Lodge, said. Roark said that by midmorning, they had raised about $3,000. The drawing of the raffle will be held on July 9 after $10,000 is raised. For some, the car show was a family event. Sam Davis, of Roswell, and Wes Matthews, of Artesia, brought Mitzi Davis, Sam’s wife and Wes’ mother, to the show as an early Mother’s Day present. “She likes hot rods,” Matthews said. Mitzi says she used to drag race cars with her brother when they were younger. “My little brother had a Malibu, and we used to race them all the time at the old airport when they had the drag strip out there,” she said as she circled a 1934 Ford Phantom Woodie Speedwagon. “It was a long time ago, but it’s still fun to see how people take care of them and how far along they’ve come.”
we got everything straight enough so we’ll let it settle down and then I’ll show you how to pack it up.” Rainey says this was his 13th Old Timers Balloon Rally in Roswell, and that he keeps coming back to make new friends and meet new people. “As you see, this is a sport that you can’t do by yourself,” he said. “It takes a crew and if you don’t have sufficient number of people, you just start recruiting them. And nearly always, just like these folks, jumped right in.” After the mor ning launch, the Old Timers met up again on Saturday evening at the Wool Bowl for a concert played by Roswell High School Band and accompanied by Balloon Baskets with Burners. They will launch again today at 6:30 a.m. at the same location. email@example.com
Vintage cars weren’t the only vehicles on display. A different crowd gathered in the parking lot at the park to check out the motorcycles on display at the annual Thunder on the River competition. Organizer Ron Courts says only 15 choppers entered this year, but what the competition lacked in quantity, it made up in quality. “We have some beautiful bikes out here today,” he said. Courts says proceeds of the contest would go toward covering the medical costs and hospital bills of his 35-year -old daughter who is battling lukemia. Russell Neeld, of Roswell, won the people’s choice vote for Best of Show this year for the second year in a row for his custom made shiny blue 2005 Harley Davidson Road King. “To make it even better, this bike right here was won in a raffle two years ago in Las Vegas, New Mexico for $40,” Neeld said. But the best part of Neeld’s day, he said, was to enter the contest with his father-in-law Robert Farmer, and to treat his family to a fun day out. “We had a blast,” he said.

Qaida’s plots against the U.S., according to a senior U.S. intelligence official who briefed reporters Saturday and insisted his name not be used. “The material found in the compound only further confirms how important it was to go after bin Laden,” said CIA director Leon Panetta in a statement Saturday. “Since 9/11, this is what the American people have expected of us. In this critical operation, we delivered.” The notes and computer material showed that bin Laden’s compound was a command-and-control center for al-Qaida, where the terrorist mastermind stayed in contact with al-Qaida affiliates around the world through a network of couriers, the intelligence official said.

soil, and the ar my was sleeping,” said Zafar Iqbal, a 61-year -old retired bureaucrat in the eastern city of Lahore. He singled out the leaders of Pakistan’s army, air force and the main intelligence organization — Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, Air Chief Marshal Rao Qamar Suleman and Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha — saying they all should be forced to resign. “All three of these men have brought insult to us, and they deserve all the punishment,” said Iqbal. The direct criticism of Kayani and Pasha was particularly striking because the two men enjoy a vaunted status in Pakistan due to their role in protecting the country from external threats, especially archenemy India. Some also feared that bad mouthing the shadowy spy agency, known as the Inter-Services Intelligence agency, could cause trouble and possibly even harm. Kayani has also had strong backing from the U.S. and other NATO countries, which have sought to enlist his help in battling militants along the country’s border with Afghanistan. It is unclear whether anyone will actually be forced to step down. The Pakistani government is

Sunday, May 8, 2011 Bin Laden was eager to strike American cities again and discussed ways to attack trains, officials said, though it appeared that plan never progressed beyond early discussions. Officials said the clips shown to reporters were just part of the largest collection of senior terrorist materials ever collected. The evidence seized during the raid also includes phone numbers and documents that officials hope will help break the back of the organization behind the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. But by selecting unflattering clips of bin Laden, the U.S. is also working to shatter the image he worked so hard to craft. “It showed that bin Laden was not the superhero he wanted his people to think,” said Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee. viewed by many as totally unresponsive to the numerous woes plaguing the nation, from a struggling economy to frequent terrorist attacks. “It is not time to sprinkle salt on wounds,” said Pakistan’s Information Minister Firdous Aashiq Awan when asked about the calls for senior officials to resign. “It is time to apply ointment on the nation’s wounds.” The Pakistani military also denied reports that the ISI chief, Pasha, planned to resign in the wake of the bin Laden raid. U.S. Navy SEALs swooped into Abbottabad by helicopter before dawn Monday, killed bin Laden and were on their way back to Afghanistan before the army could respond. The ar my has said it had no prior knowledge of the operation — a claim backed up by the U.S. “No one other than the ISI and ar my chiefs are responsible for this disgrace of American attacks on our homeland,” said Jaffar Ali, a 35-year -old bank employee in the southern city of Karachi. “It is a complete failure of our security.” In contrast, former Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, a lawmaker for the ruling Pakistan People’s Party,
One video clearly shows the terror leader choosing and changing channels with a remote control, which he points at what appears to be a satellite cable box. U.S. officials have previously said there was a satellite dish for television reception but no Internet or phone lines ran to the house. Cellphones were prohibited on the compound. It’s unclear how many tapes were pulled out of the house, and U.S. officials say they’re scouring the intelligence so quickly it has not even been catalogued and counted yet. But there may be a trove of recordings. According to the book “Growing Up bin Laden,” by his first wife and fourth son, the terrorist leader nearly always kept a tape recorder nearby to take down his thoughts, plans and musings about politics and the world. fixed the blame squarely on President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani — likely motivated in part by past conflict with the two men. “This is a great violation of our sovereignty, but it is for the president and prime minister to resign and no one else,” Qureshi told reporters Saturday in the central city of Lahore. The main opposition leader in parliament, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, took a less selective approach. He said anyone from Zardari on down who can be faulted for what happened in Abbottabad should resign. “This is a call coming from every street of Pakistan,” Khan told reporters in Lahore. Qureshi, the former foreign minister, said parliament should conduct a thorough inquiry into the raid. Ayesha Siddiqa, a Pakistani defense analyst, said the civilian gover nment should broaden its focus and seize the opportunity to conduct a comprehensive assessment of the country’s military and intelligence agencies — a process that could reign in the amount of money they receive and reduce their power over Pakistani politics.

It has been said that the number 7 is a lucky number; however, for me, it has been seven years since the last time I held you in my arms (on Mother’s Day).
What hurts so much was being so close and having so much to say. I watched you leave, knowing you would be coming home in a Hearse. My heart has never been the same, but I tell myself I will be okay. But on my weakest days, it hurts so much then a tear begins to show.
If I could walk the stairways to Heaven, where you are standing guard by the Pearly Gates, I would embrace and hold you- never wanting to let you go. You would lean down and gently kiss my forehead and whisper, “I Love You, Mamason”. If Heaven wasn’t so far away, I could go back every time I felt broken, where you would take the pain away, then losing you wouldn’t be so hard to take. I Love You and Miss You So Much! MAMASON

GOP is looking very good for 2012 elections
SANTA FE — A recent national GOP poll would suggest that New Mexico Democrats might just as well not bother with the 2012 elections. A robo call of Republicans likely to vote in the 2012 primary gave Gov. Susana Martinez a 93 percent favorable rating and former U.S. Rep. Heather Wilson an 83 percent rating. Those are high marks, even for members of one’s own party. And that is an especially high rating among Republicans for Wilson, who was beaten convincingly in the 2008 GOP primary by fellow Republican Steve Pearce. Lt. Gov. John Sanchez has been working at inheriting the conservative blessing from Pearce this time around. But his 58 percent approval rating is not translating yet into Republicans who say they will vote for him. Only 17 percent plan to do that at this point as compared to 59 percent who will vote for Wilson. If that number has any validity for Wilson, she is doing much bet-

ter than expected. Likely Republican primary voters usually tend toward conservative and that isn’t considered good for Wilson. It is time for those with conservative credentials to get their campaigns in high gear. And recently Wilson received an endorsement from tea party activist Tim Lewis, a brother of Albuquerque City Councilor Dan Lewis, who is running for the vacated U.S. House seat of Rep. Martin Heinrich. Wilson also is viewed as New Mexico’s most able advocate for the state’s national labs and air bases. Gov. Martinez’s popularity is surprisingly high among Republi-

cans considering she has just been through a bruising legislative session without a great deal of success delivering on campaign promises. She has traveled the state frequently, often for feel-good bill signings and evidently always by car but, otherwise, her media effort has been weak and her accessibility low. Republicans like limited government and that’s what they’re getting. Few bills got past Martinez’s veto pen and many programs have been cut. And she continually gets away with claiming that she cut $450 million out of the state budget even though her budget proposal cut only $134 million from our next budget and the Democraticcontrolled Legislature cut another $22 million beyond the governor’s cuts. One cut Martinez hasn’t been able to make is the sale of the state jet on eBay. She now has contracted with a Colorado firm to find a buyer. One cut that Martinez’s home-
folks shouldn’t like is her lack of support for Spaceport America, located near the border between Sierra and Dona Ana counties. The project could be the biggest economic development initiative southern New Mexico ever has seen At times Martinez has had a few nice words about the project but mostly, she has seemed totally disinterested in the entire idea. She did appoint what appears to be a strong manager for the effort but she followed that with a $500,000 cut to the spaceport’s operating budget. That money could be much needed when it comes to opening and promoting the spaceport. A month seldom passes that another state or nation doesn’t announce plans for a commercial spaceport. Sooner or later, Virgin Galactic’s Richard Branson is going to get an offer he can’t refuse to move his operations out of New Mexico. This
month’s entry into the contest is the tiny island of Curacao, off the northern coast of Venezuela. Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson has made it official. He now is a declared candidate for president. He still isn’t making many lists of candidates but he has participated in a South Car olina debate. Ther e is a catch, however. To register for South Carolina’s ballot and participate in the debate a $25,000 payment is necessary. Few of the top tier candidates have opted in. There is bound to be another inducement down the line. Also participating in the debate was U.S. Rep. Ron Paul. Johnson had hoped to gain the libertarian support that Paul had behind him four years ago. But it sounds as though Paul will be running again.

Get answers from Pakistan
Michigan’s Sen. Carl Levin and Rep. Mike Rogers are among the Washington officials seeking answers on just how much support Osama bin Laden was receiving from elements of the Pakistani military or intelligence services. Bin Laden was living in an elaborate compound in a city only two hours from Pakistan’s capital when he was killed in a raid by U.S. Navy SEALs, an elite commando team. The trick will be getting answers while still maintaining tolerable relations with Pakistan, a key nation in the continuing struggle against terrorism. Levin, a Democrat who heads the Senate Armed Services Committee, said “it’s hard to imagine the military or police did not have ideas of what was going on inside of (the compound).” He added, “(T)here’s a lot of questions that need to be asked” and suggested the Pakistani government do the asking. Mike Rogers, R-Brighton, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, had similar concerns, but added that maintaining relations with Pakistan is important since other al-Qaida leaders remain within the country. It has been clear for some time that Pakistan has been playing a double game — supporting U.S. anti-terrorism efforts, including with the lives of its own soldiers and police officers — at the same time that some elements within its intelligence service have protected the terrorists. Pakistan’s government at first noted that it had been cooperative in the weekend American raid, but last week issued a statement of concern about the violation of its sovereignty by the raid. The two statements illustrate the balancing act its own government has to perform — not angering the Americans too much but also not appearing too subservient. The location of bin Laden’s compound so deep within Pakistan raises new doubts about Pakistani sincerity in dealing with terrorism. White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan told a news briefing that the U.S. intends to pursue all leads in discovering bin Laden’s enablers within Pakistan. This will have to be done delicately so as not to weaken the Pakistani government. Congress in 2009 adopted a five-year, $7.5 billion aid package for Pakistan. It would be foolish to totally cut off all of the aid, as some in Congress are suggesting. But it ought to buy some answers. Guest Editorial The Detroit News

More taxes on Big Oil is a bad idea
First quarter profits for American oil companies are jaw dropping. Exxon earned nearly $11 billion, up 69 percent from a year ago. Royal Dutch Shell PLC, Europe’s largest oil company, announced it made $8.78 billion in the first quarter, a 60 percent increase over last year. Much of it, but not all, is due to higher gas prices, over which the companies have very little control due to our heavy reliance on foreign oil. Some in Congress — mostly Democrats, but a few Republicans — are calling for an end to tax breaks enjoyed by the

oil companies and in some cases, higher taxes on their profits. But the Obama administration is contributing to higher energy prices, which inflate the companies’ bottom line. The Environmental Protection Agency has prevented Shell from proceeding with its
Northern Alaska drilling project after Shell reportedly invested more than $4 billion in the project. How can companies make costly investments when they are uncertain that policies allowed in one administration will still be allowed in the one that follows? In March, when visiting South America, President Obama promised that the United States would help Brazil develop its of fshore resources. But he won’t allow much new drilling in the Gulf of Mexico or Alaska. So we are going to help Brazil drill for
oil, and then import it? Gas prices have nearly doubled since Obama’s inauguration and yet the media doesn’t blame him for it, as they blamed his predecessor when prices soared to current levels. What about taxes? Oil companies are already heavily taxed. According to the energy research firm Wood Mackenzie, between 1998 and 2008, the oil and gas industry paid $1 trillion in total income taxes. That’s in addition to the $178 billion the companies sent the federal government in

Today is Sunday, May 8, the 128th day of 2011. There are 237 days left in the year. This is Mother’s Day. Today’s Highlight On May 8, 1945, President Harry S. Truman announced on radio that Nazi Germany’s forces had surrendered, and that “the flags of freedom fly all over Europe.” DEAR DR. GOTT: Do you have any information on fructose intolerance? I have been able to find only one book related to the problem. Thank you. DEAR READER: Fructose intolerance, commonly known as hereditary fructose intolerance (HFI), is a genetic disorder in which the body is unable to break down fructose and some other sugars. It is known as an autosomal recessive disorder, which means that in order to be affected, each parent must have the mutation and pass it on to the child. If only one copy is passed on, the child will be a carrier but will not be affected. This abnormal gene results in the body missing the enzyme fructose-1-phosphate aldolase, which is responsible for chang-

ing glycogen into glucose, which the body uses for energy. Without it, fructose-1-phosphate will build up in the small intestine, liver and kidneys. Following ingestion of fructose, sucrose and sorbitol (a sugar alcohol), the body’s blood-glucose levels will drop, causing hypoglycemia. Severe abdominal pain and vomiting may also occur.
Other symptoms include excessive sleepiness, jaundice, irritability, convulsions and more. Sufferers develop a distaste for sweet foods. Liver and kidney damage can occur, and may result in organ failure or death, so strict avoidance of all foods and drinks containing fructose and other sugars metabolized by fructose-1-phosphate aldolase is vital. Fructose intolerance can sometimes be confused with fructose malabsorption, which is not life threatening but is more common. Fructose malabsorption can cause abdominal pain, bloating, gas and diarrhea but does not result in the liver or kidney damage. However, treatment for both conditions is the same.
The most important aspect of management is avoidance of all sources of fructose, sucrose and sorbitol, including fruits, fruit juices, table sugar, sodas, powdered sugar, sports drinks, honey, high-fructose corn syrup and a great deal more. This can be very difficult. Consulting a registered dietician and reading labels meticulously will be highly beneficial. The dietician can help you avoid fructose and maintain a balanced, healthful diet. Boston University has an entire lab dedicated to the research of HFI and aldolase. It offers information about the condition, diagnosis, treatment, HFI-specific diets and research.

Replace a critical spirit with encouragement OPINION II
Roswell Daily Record
We can control what we say. I know we can. We can control what we think. I know this also. So why don’t we do so? Is it really that hard to take control of our own minds or the words we allow to roll off our lips? My mother had a friend when I was very young who was having difficulties with her children. My mother and her friend would get together regularly to visit. Each time they got together at some point her friend would criticize and cut down the actions of her children. She would speak negatively about one child and then another. My mother would listen patiently, seeking to be a good friend. After her friend was through, my mom would talk about her own children. She would start by sharing something positive one of us had done or was doing and then start to talk about another one of us. Although none of us children were perfect (or anywhere close for that matter!), my mother would find good things to say about us. I remember mom coming home several times and shaking her head. She told us that as soon as she began praising her children, her friend would start speaking positively about her own children and suddenly her friend’s children were the best children who ever

rent, royalty and bonus payments between 1982 and 2009. What oil companies pay in taxes is higher than the average American manufacturer, more than their “fair share.” Wood Mackenzie also found that should taxes be increased on oil companies by $5 billion a year, that “would result in a $128 billion loss in government revenue and would reduce domestic production by 400,000 barrels per day by 2025,” with an additional 1.2 million barrels per day at risk. “This tax increase would increase, not decrease our reliance on foreign sources of oil.” As for those large profits, the American Petroleum Institute reports that in the latest published data for last year’s third quarter, “the oil and gas industry earned 6 cents for every dollar of sales in comparison with all manufacturing, which ear ned 8.6 cents for every dollar of sales.” This administration gives lip service to the successful, while punishing them and subsidizing the unsuccessful. If the president is serious about reducing the cost of oil (and given candidate Obama’s frequent statements in favor of increased energy prices to force more of us (but not him) to drive hybrid, even electric cars — he can emulate George W.

My mother’s friend’s children were the same children regardless of what was shared about them, yet they sounded like totally different people depending on what their mother wanted to share. Somehow, the negativity became positive once my mother began talking positively about us. What you focus on expands. The best way to bring down any organization is to sabotage it with negativity. One person with a negative attitude will not be able to bring an organization down; that is, unless the rest of the organization participates with the negative person. One person can be isolated and overcome if the organization chooses to quarantine that one person’s attitude. Two people can bring down an organization by enlisting the help of others. What amazes me is some people don’t have any idea how negative they are. They really don’t. They
shore drilling, a token gesture since a federal ban on offshore drilling remained in place, but his action caused oil prices to drop, as suppliers believed we were getting serious about obtaining more oil from domestic sources. The argument from the antidrilling side is that new drilling projects would have no effect because of the time it takes to find and then refine the oil. If new drilling had begun five or 10 years ago we would be pumping far more oil than we are now. If we begin now, in five or 10 years we’ll see the results. Demonizing the oil companies won’t produce one more drop of oil. Neither will higher taxes, which will affect employment and create many more negative consequences. Last week, for mer President George W. Bush reiterated his support for more drilling: “I would suggest Americans understand how supply and demand works. And if you restrict supplies of crude, the price of oil is going to go up.” President Obama either doesn’t understand supply and demand, or he is deliberately ignoring it in hopes of imposing his radical environmental views on us all.

have become so accustomed to being critical and interpreting whatever happens in a negative manner that they have lost touch with any semblance of a positive spirit. It is as if they have become numb through their repeated attitude. The numbers vary depending on what study you review, but they are all the same in concept. If a person has a good experience with a person or organization she is likely to tell two others about it. If a person has a bad experience, she is likely to tell 12 others about it. Isn’t this amazing? You do six things well and 12 others hear of your six good deeds. You slip once, and 12 others hear of your single slip. Think about it. It is almost as if the average person is anxious to share something bad if they are given the opportunity. If a red light could be installed as standard equipment on our body somewhere in our line of vision and if it lit up every time we conveyed a negative critical spirit, some people could see their way around in the darkness without a flashlight! You get the idea. Our words are really just extensions of our thoughts. It is through our words that our innermost thoughts are communicated. So what do we choose to think about?

Praise for physician
Dear Editor: I needed to share an experience of a positive note about a fantastic family physician, Dr. Reynaldo Martinez. I have been a patient of Dr. Martinez for a number of years and have always been pleased with the care he has provided for me and my family. Last week I was on a business trip and injured my shoulder. I felt like the injury was minor and didn’t want to seek medical treatment while out of town in a non-emergency situation. I was returning to Roswell on an American Eagle flight on Good Friday. During my layover in Dallas the pain in my shoulder became intense. I called Dr. Martinez’s office and learned it was

told, “Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things.” These words of wisdom tell how we should program our minds. Let me carry this one step further from our thoughts to what we say. We each control the words we speak. At Ephesians 4:29 we are told “Say only what is good and helpful to those you are talking to, and what will give them a blessing.” Wow! If we all followed this verse, how would our world be different? The other thing along these lines that amazes me is that we are often most critical and negative to those closest to us. Some people use words more powerful than swings of machetes to cut apart their spouse or children. I heard a man say once, “If my wife would only treat me as well as she treats her worst enemy, we would have a happy marriage.” His point was well taken. The rules on how we treat our family are unfortunately different than the rules on how we treat mere strangers. A marriage will not be any stronger than the encouragement in the home. A friendship will not be any stronger than the support
closed for the holiday. I did leave an urgent message for Dr. Martinez and asked for him to return my call. Several minutes later he returned my call and I explained my situation. Instead of referring me to an emergency room, he instructed me to call when I got back to town and he would see me. My flight landed as scheduled and Dr. Martinez met me at his office to treat my injury. He spent nearly an hour treating me. The next day he called me to follow up on my condition. Not many physicians would interrupt their holiday weekend to treat a patient. Dr. Martinez is a gifted and compassionate physician who truly cares for the well being of his patients.

An organization will not be any stronger than the attitude that is conveyed by its members. A community will not be any stronger than the positive spirit of its citizens.

DEAR READER: Let me start by saying Fordyce spots are not a skin disease. They are normal. They are large, superficial, oil-producing glands found on mucosal surfaces, most commonly found at the border of the corners of the lips and in the mouth at the back inner cheeks. They do not produce symptoms. Treatment is usually not necessary because the spots are normal. Treatment (with mild topical steroids) may be recommended in cases when itching and irritation are present, which is typically the result of inappropriate treatment. You can’t cure something that isn’t a disease. If you are truly concerned, speak with a dermatologist, who will, in all likelihood, confirm what I have said. Dr. Peter H.

How to spend down your assets to qualify for Medicaid
This is the fourth part of a series on Medicare and Medicaid. We covered Medicare already, and Medicare is the federal program almost everybody gets when they tur n 65, and it doesn’t cover much of your nursing home stay. Medicaid is a state program which pays for long-term nursing facility care, and some in-home care under the personal care option (Old PCO and COLT). People worry that the state or nursing homes abscond with your house or CDs. Nobody actually takes anything, it’s just that your loved one or power of attorney will need to gather your assets together, and pay your nursing home bill (called “spend down”) until you reach certain levels of assets remaining, and then apply to get you on Medicaid. We talked about singles last month. Not much they can do except pay their bills until they are down to $2,000, a car, a prepaid funeral and the home as long as their power of attorney checked the box on the Medicaid application saying they want to return home. However, something new is called estate recovery, meaning the state will place a lien on the home for the amount of Medicaid payments upon the death of the Medicaid recipient. If this upsets
DUNLAP ELDER LAW TIDBITS
you then don’t think about the recently extended tax breaks for the rich or you’ll be more upset. It’s more complicated for married people, although they do get all of the above and more. Let’s say the hubby has dementia and mama needs to get him in the nursing home before he wears her down or drives her nuts. Mama, you have to do it because if you get so worn down or die while caring for a hubby then he will have no local care manager; nobody to visit him every day at the facility; and nobody to assure that he is getting proper care. It’s really important that you, mama, realize when it’s time to stop being a care provider and start functioning as a care manager by placing him in a nursing home or assisted living facility.

Lizard listing could harm schools
Dear Editor: Recently, New Mexicans have watched and read about important issues affecting our citizens. Our state budget, public and higher education, early childhood development, and now the effort to list the sand dune lizard as an endangered species are but a few of the issues. What is interesting for me, as the head of a state educational institution, is the fact that these issues all affect public and higher education, even the sand dune lizard. Much has been, and is still to be, written, both pro and con, about the effects on the oil and gas economy of southeastern New Mexico should the federal government list the sand dune lizard as endangered and its habitat protected. Rightly, we need public discourse regarding the impact such a listing will have on that portion of the New Mexico economy, let alone simply that of southeastern New Mexico, so that a sound decision will be the result. That said, following the issues, I see no mention of the potential effect that such a listing can, and most probably will, have on public and higher education in our state, especially at a time when we as a community are searching for answers to improve our educational promise for all New Mexicans. The Ferguson Act of 1898 and the New Mexico Enabling Act of 1910, which started New Mexico on the road to statehood, transferred federal lands to the territory and made New Mexico subject to: 1) a binding and perpetual obligation to use the granted lands for the support of public education; and 2) all revenue from the sale or lease of the school grants was to become part of the state’s permanent school fund and administered in favor of the schools. The Permanent School Fund (NM Constitution, Article XII, §2), today titled the Land Grant Permanent Fund, comprises the interest earnings and royalties from oil, natural gas and minerals and the proceeds from land sales that are held in
exempt cash/assets (it’s called, let’s get that new kitchen!), and note that the amount of equity you can have in that home has been increased to $750,000. Today we are only going to talk about remaining cash/assets other than the home for married folks. Cash/assets means anything that can be turned into cash for the purpose of paying a nursing home, and that includes CDs, stocks and bonds, cash value of whole life insurance not used as a funeral policy, real estate other than the home, including rent houses, vehicles other than the one of any value exempted for married folks (that would be the Rolls), all the oil wells, the ranch, etc. Oh, and everybody always wonders whether separate or community property has anything to do with it and the answer is no. Everything owned by a married couple is counted whether it be separate or community, and this is a good reason why seniors marrying late in life should consider commitment ceremonies in lieu of lawful marriage. The bottom line is: if you add up your cash/asset non-exempt stuff and it totals under $32,000, then don’t do any spend down because hubby already qualifies for Medicaid and you can keep the

trust for the benefit of 21 public entities identified in the Enabling Act that include our public schools, universities and a military institute. Today, through sound management by the State Land Office and the State Investment Council, the LGPF, currently valued at around $10 billion, provides each beneficiary an annual distribution of 5.8 percent of the five-year average market value of the LGPF. (NOTE: I would be remiss if I failed to mention that the percentage distribution will reduce to 5.5 percent for FY 2013-16, and further reduce to 5 percent in FY 2017, returning the distribution percentage to 2003 levels). Our public schools receive the bulk of the LGPF distribution, more than 83 percent. The remainder is shared among 20 other beneficiaries. At the end of 2008, for example, the LGPF, then valued at slightly more than $9 billion, distributed more than $525 million of which our public schools received more than $437 million, New Mexico Military Institute received $17.7 million, our universities (e.g., UNM, NMSU, ENMU) and the Schools for the Deaf and for the Visually Handicapped shared almost $35 million. These monies are used solely in support of New Mexico education, and these monies come primarily from our economic interests in oil and gas! While I cannot say I can predict the future, I will say that, since I am charged with the responsibility of leading and managing one of the best college preparatory educational institutions in our state and the nation, I must view the future with promise and pragmatism. Those who say that listing the sand dune lizard as endangered will not have serious effect on New Mexico’s oil and gas industry, that the economy of the state and southeastern
$32,000, home, car, etc. But, if you have already fixed up the house or bought a new one, bought the new car and funeral policies (exempt assets) and you still have more than $32,000 of cash/assets then you will need to pay hubby’s nursing home bill and spend down some of it before Medicaid will help. If you have $50,000 then you will spend down to $32,000. More than $64,000, you can keep half, up to a cap of $220,000, ie: if you have $70,000 then spend down to $35,000; if you have $100,00 spend down to $50,000; if you have $220,000 spend down to $110,000. Got a million? Millionaires spend down to $110,000 (you’ll never make it, poor baby). While paying spend down, consider assisted living instead of a nursing home for a nicer and cheaper environment. Always start with a visit to your Medicaid office (6253000) to check the latest figures and to let them take a “snapshot” of your assets if they want to. In other words, $32,000 (actually it’s $31,290.00) is a baseline below which you need never spend; but if half your nonexempt assets total more than $32,000 then you only need spend one-half, unless half your total is more than $110,000 in
New Mexico will not suffer, or that the oil and gas industry can absorb any changes in exploration and drilling, may be right. But, what if those assumptions are wrong? For all its apparent dollar strength, the LGPF may be more fragile a species than the lizard. The lion’s share of its value comes from our oil and gas industry. Fewer lease sales means less dollars for investment in the fund. Less investment means less return on investment (revenue) to distribute to the fund beneficiaries. Less return on investment means that the beneficiaries will have to reduce their cost of doing business — in education that means cutting current programs, eliminating positions, foregoing planned programs and improvements, and other costs. Less dollars from the LGPF means that the beneficiaries must petition the Legislature to make up any shortfalls through General Fund appropriations that as we have seen are suffering their own shortfalls. The LGPF is more than the dollars that comprise it. It is not as some would have us believe a “rainy day fund” to be used to satisfy the next new idea. The LGPF remains the birthright of every New Mexican, past, present and future, providing the foundation upon which education

Avoid snake bites now that summer is approaching Roswell Daily Record
Although we don’t often think about it, living in the Great Southwest places us within the domain of one of nature’s most dangerous natural creatures. Yes, I’m talking about rattlesnakes! Most common in Southeastern New Mexico are the Western Diamondback and the Prairie Rattlesnake. There are, of course, several other varieties throughout the United States. Without question, the best thing to do about snakes is to avoid them altogether. When you go on an adventure of some kind, you must know what to expect in that environment. Avoid dense brush, stacked firewood, rock piles and other places which provide a home for these animals. Keep your eyes open and your awareness up. Obviously, children must be taught about snakes and other natural dangers as well. Each year there are some 8,000 poisonous snake bites in the United States. Of these, some ten snake bite deaths are reported, on average. In fact, more people die from wasp and bee stings than from snakebites. Nonetheless, a snakebite is an extremely painful experience and can cause long-term tissue damage. By staying calm, following good procedures, and using common sense, a snakebite victim can lessen the long-term effects of the bite. There have been many snake bite remedies offered over the years. Recent studies have concluded that the
following protocols are best. 1. Stay calm, get safely away from the snake, and have someone call 9-1-1 (or the emergency number in your area). Minimize movement by the victim. 2. Have the victim lie down with the affected limb lower than the heart. Keep the limb immobilized, and, if practical, splint the limb. 3. Treat for shock and preserve body heat. 4. Remove any rings, bracelets, boots, or other restricting items from the bitten extremity. (It WILL swell.) 5. Apply a light constricting band about 2" above and below the bite. This is NOT a tourniquet, and should only be as tight as a nurse applies when giving a blood

test. 6. Wash the bite with soap and water (if available). 7. If the victim has to walk out, sit calmly for 20-30 minutes to let the venom localize at the site, proceed calmly to the nearest source of help. Try to avoid unnecessary exertion that will stimulate circulation of the poison. 8. Get the victim to definitive medical care. As techniques have improved over the years, here are some things that were once recommended, but are to be avoided today. Do not cut the bite, which simply causes additional tissue damage. And do not apply a tourniquet, which can possibly cause the loss of a limb. Never try to suck out the venom by mouth. A suction cup from a snakebite kit might be used, but suctioning seldom provides any measurable advantages. And finally, do not apply cold and/or ice packs, which most likely will make the injury much worse.

NA T I O N A L BRIEFS PACQUIAO WINS DECISION OVER SHANE MOSLEY
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Manny Pacquiao earned an unanimous decision over Sugar Shane Mosley on Saturday night, retaining his WBO welterweight title with his 14th consecutive victory. Pacquiao (54-3-2) didn’t get the knockout he sought, but the Filipino Congressman kept his spot as boxing’s top pound-forpound fighter, methodically beating Mosley (46-7-1) at the MGM Grand Garden. The eight-division champion knocked down Mosley with a right-left combination midway through the third round, just the third knockdown of Mosley’s decorated 18-year career.

LAWRENCE FOSTER RECORD SPORTS REPORTER
ALBUQUERQUE — When people discuss team sports in high school, tennis is not the first item on the agenda. In fact, it probably isn’t even on the mind at all because many people think of tennis as an individual sport. At the high school level, however, tennis is the ultimate team sport, because while a star athlete can carry a basketball team to a championship, a star tennis player wins only one or two matches at most each time out. The NMMI boys tennis team won the Class 1A/2A/3A State Championship and completed an undefeated 18-0 season on Saturday at Albuquerque Academy with a complete team effort. In beating Sandia Prep 5-3 in the semis and topping Bosque 5-1 in the finals, the Colts did not receive a victory from its top doubles team or top two singles players.
Instead of the top of the order carrying NMMI, it was the “bottom” of the lineup that did the damage and that was most evident in its opening match. The semifinal match opened with doubles play and at first it appeared that the Colts’ run may be at an end. At second doubles, NMMI’s Jorge Garza and Jerry Estrella dropped the first set, 1-6, and fell behind 1-4 in the second to the Devil duo of Mike Atkin and Alex Moller. Colt coach Jim Kelly then offered them a solution to their problem. “This kid Atkin, plays No. 1 singles for them and in the first set, we were hitting it to him and he was killing us,” he said. “I told them to play the other guy. It’s like finding a chink in the armor and we just pulled it up from their gut.” NMMI followed Kelly’s advice and battled back to take the second set, 6-4. In the rubber set, Garza and Estrella built up a 4-0 lead, but Atkin and Moller were able to

COLLEGE PLAYER SHOT IN DETROIT
DETROIT (AP) — Authorities say a junior cornerback for Wayne State’s football team has been fatally shot in a downtown Detroit parking lot. Wayne State University campus Police Chief Tony Holt said Cortez Smith was killed around 1 a.m. Friday near a popular nightclub. Holt says it wasn’t clear if Smith was going to the club when the shooting occurred. Police say a second person was wounded. No arrests have been made. The Wayne State Warriors 2011 team roster lists Smith as a 2008 graduate of Detroit Cass Tech High School and an electrical engineering major. He was the team’s defensive rookie of the year in 2010 and played in 11 games. There was no answer Friday night at the school’s athletic department offices.
force a tiebreaker. In the tiebreaker, Atkin started on serve, but an error by Moller gave the Colts the early lead. An Atkin winner knotted the game at one, but Garza reclaimed the lead for NMMI with an ace on his next serve. Moller tied the game again with a first-serve winner of his own, but he double faulted the next point to give NMMI a 3-2 lead. The Devils won four of the next five points to take a 6-4 lead. On double match point, Garza jammed Moller with a second serve to cut the lead to one and a double fault by Moller tied the game at six. The teams split the next two points, before two winners by the Colts gave them the match. The comeback win proved to be very important as the Colts top doubles team of Jose Gonzalez and Frederico Sanchez dropped a tight match to Miles Parnegg and Graham Bryan, 75, 7-6 (7-2).
Jockey John Velazquez rides Animal Kingdom, right, to victory during the 137th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs, Saturday.
Animal Kingdom wins Derby
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — John Velazquez won the Kentucky Derby by a broken nose. An injury to Animal Kingdom’s regular rider, Robby Albarado, cleared the way for Velazquez to pick up the mount on the 20-1 long shot. Once he took the reins Saturday, he rode his good luck all the way to the winner’s circle. “For once, I’m on the good end of it,” Velazquez said. “All of a sudden I pick up this one and he wins the Derby, so it was meant to be.” The last three years, the New York-based jockey came to Churchill Downs with a colt considered a leading contender, only to have it withdrawn. This time, he was supposed to ride early second choice Uncle Mo before the colt was scratched due to a lingering stomach problem. Then Albarado broke his nose
when he was thrown off his horse and kicked in the face before a race three days ago. And the rest, as they say, is history. Animal Kingdom, who had never raced on dirt before, reacted to his new rider the way a champion should, charging down the middle of the stretch to win by 2 3 ⁄ 4 lengths in front of a crowd of 164,858, the largest in Derby history. He ran 1 1⁄4 miles in 2:02.04 — well off Secretariat’s track record of 1:59.40 in 1973 — and paid $43.80, $19.60 and $13. Nehro retur ned $8.80 and $6.40, while Mucho Macho Man was another neck back in third and paid $7 to show. “It’s words that you can’t See DERBY, Page B2
The first game of the three-game series between Goddard and Valencia in the NMAA Class 4A State Baseball Championships was a pitching duel that relied on timely hitting and limiting mistakes. Saturday’s Game 2 was the polar opposite of that. The Rockets (22-6) pounded out 17 runs on 13 hits — including six extra-base hits — and rolled to a 17-9 win to close out the series in two games. “Like I’ve said in the past, (the hitting) has kind of went flat for a while, but they’re starting to come around again,” said Rocket coach Steve Nunez after the win. “Valencia is a good ballclub and they stayed with us for awhile, but we just kept on pouring it on and it was good.” In Game 2, the only thing that mirrored Game 1 was Valencia jumping ahead early. The Jaguars went up 1-0 when Cody Koontz crossed, but, by the end of the bottom half of the first, that lead was gone. Brad Blackwell tied things up in a hurry in Goddard’s half,

Brandon Cooper doubled after Blackwell’s trip around and scored when C.J. Wilcox drove a sacrifice fly into left field. Andre Shewcraft, who was in as a courtesy runner for Jason Butts, scored two batters later on a Caelin Wilcox single into left.
That gave Goddard a 3-1 lead through one. After a scoreless second, Valencia took the lead back in the third. The Jags plated four runs on four hits and two Rocket errors for a 5-3 advantage. However, just like the first, Goddard erased that deficit in its half of the inning — this time for good. See ROCKETS, Page B2

NMMI did go into singles play with a lead as the third doubles team of Luis Zaragoza and Maricio Moncada downed the Devils’ Druitri Grauberg and Ben Lauer, 1-6, 6-4, 7-6 (9-7). In singles play, nothing had been decided after the
first four matches were completed. NMMI’s Estrella (fifth; 62, 6-2 over Grauberg) and Moncada (sixth; 7-6, 6-2 over Lauer) won their matches, but Sanchez and Garza dropped theirs, leaving No. 1 and No. 4 singles to decide the match. The Colts needed just one of the two matches to advance to the champi-

describe,” Velazquez said. “But I do really feel really bad for Robby. I hope he’s winning the Derby with me here. I know he got hurt, so this is for both of us, buddy. I know you’re not on it, but I know you’re with me.” Well, not exactly. “I’m not happy,” said Albarado, despite winning a $345,600 stakes race on the Derby undercard. “Barry Irwin decided he didn’t think I was fit to ride; he didn’t know my status or situation. This just wasn’t my time today.” Animal Kingdom is owned by Team Valor International, a partner-

Valencia (19-8) got a run back in the fourth, but the Rockets put up five in their half of the fourth — three of which came on a two-run homer by Butts and a solo jack by C.J. Wilcox in back-to-back at bats — and added one more in the fifth and four ship syndicate headed by Irwin, a former writer for the Daily Racing Form, the industry’s bible. Irwin decided to switch riders when Albarado took Friday off to recuperate. “It was a tough call because I really like Robby. He’s won a lot of races for us, but we got 20 partners in this horse,” Irwin said. “We got a large investment and I had to do what I thought was best for the partnership.” Like Velazquez, Irwin said he would make it up to Albarado. Like his jockey, trainer Graham Motion got lucky, too. His top Derby horse, Wood Memorial winner Toby’s Corner, never even made it to Louisville. He had a leg injury and never
about after not a real good showing in the individual effort. We are still undefeated and we hope that we can win one more.” NMMI did just that in the nightcap against the Bobcats, albeit in not as dramatic fashion as the first match. The Colts once again took two of three at doubles, getting wins from Estrella and Garza (second; 5-7, 6-2, 6-1 over Rand Briggs and Mohmoud Thabet) and Moncada and Zaragoza (third; 6-3, 6-4 over Andrew Patten and Ghihab Thabet). There would be no need for dramatics in singles play though as the first three matches to be completed went to NMMI, giving it its eighth tennis championship. The singles winners were Estrella (fourth; 6-0, 6-0 over Mohmoud Thabet), Moncada (sixth; 6-0, 6-0 over Ghihab Thabet) and the deciding victory from Zaragoza (fourth; 6-1, 6-2 over Patten). After the final point, Zaragoza raised his arms and looked toward the rest of his team, not wanting to celebrate by himself. The final three singles matches were halted as the Colt
more in the sixth to pull away. “The way Valencia swings the bat, they swing it pretty good,” Nunez said. “They’d go up and get a few, we’d come back and get a few and tie it up or go ahead, and it stayed like that for a while. “But we finally broke through. Those are two big home runs that got the confidence up in the dugout and kind of got us
on our way.” Valencia’s final three runs came in the sixth. Cooper got the win for Goddard after giving up six runs on eights in four innings of work. The New Mexico State recruit struck out five and walked three. Austin Rader came on in the fifth and gave up three hits and struck out three over the final three innings.
left Motion’s barn in Maryland. “Somebody said, ‘Are you surprised to win with a second-tier horse?”’ Motion said. “I said, ‘I’m not sure we would categorize him as a second-tier horse.’ He’s been an extraordinary horse to train. I was so impressed with how he handled everything.” Dialed In went off as the 5-1 favorite for two-time Derby-winning trainer Nick Zito, but finished eighth. Mucho Macho Man’s finish for Kathy Ritvo tied her for second-best result by a female trainer in the 137year-old race. Shelley Riley saddled Casual Lies to a second-place finish in 1992. Rosie Napravnik was ninth aboard 8-1 second choice Pants On Fire in her

Neither could Velazquez. The day was clearly his after going 0-for-12 in previous Derby tries. “It was a loss for Robby, obviously, having the accident he had, and a win for me,” Velazquez said. “Obviously, it turned out to be a great thing for myself.” Animal Kingdom won the Spiral Stakes on the synthetic surface at Turfway Park in his previous start. Though this was his first race on dirt, the winner had an easy trip, and Velazquez did a masterful job despite his unfamiliarity with the horse. They

Rondo returns and helps Celtics beat Heat 97-81
BOSTON (AP) — Rajon Rondo had six points and 11 assists despite playing the fourth quarter with a dislocated left elbow, and the Boston Celtics beat the Miami Heat 97-81 on Saturday night in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. Miami leads the best-of-seven series 21, with Game 4 on Monday night in Boston. Kevin Garnett had 28 points and 18 rebounds, and Paul Pierce scored 27 for the defending East champions, who managed to avoid a 3-0 hole that no NBA team has ever overcome. Dwyane Wade had 23 points and seven assists, and Joel Anthony continued to contribute off the bench, scoring 12 with 11 rebounds. LeBron James scored 15, as he and Wade combined to make just 14 of 35 shots from the floor. Rondo crashed to the court after a tangle with Wade in the third quarter and had to be helped off the floor, with his left arm immobilized by the team doctor. But he returned for the start of the fourth and — despite playing with his left arm dangling at his side — provided the Celtics with the spark they had been missing in the first two games. “We understand fully now how tough it is to take down a champion,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “All this fuel, the last three days, that was going on, I was cringing. Because you know this is a proud group, and you knew they would have a response.” In the building where James’ Cleveland career came to an end, Boston provided its first real resistance in the series, jumping to a 16-7 lead in the opening minutes. After Miami came back in the second quarter to take the lead, the Celtics posted a dominating second half, with Rondo as their emotional leader. The point guard returned to the Celtics’ bench at the end of the third quarter, and the crowd rose to its feet when a picture of him on the bench was shown on the scoreboard. “The first report was ‘dislocated — out,’ basically for good,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. “Thirty seconds later, I was in the huddle and I saw Rondo walk by me, and it looked like he was going to play.” Rondo returned for the start of the fourth and was obviously favoring his left arm, but that didn’t stop him from a right-handed dunk after a steal and breakaway with 8:39 left that gave Boston an 81-63 lead. Two minutes later, with his left arm dangling helplessly at his side, he drove in and laid it up over James. “It’s definitely tight,” Rondo said on the postgame broadcast, at one point referring to his elbow as broken. “It’s a feeling I’ve never experienced before. With our trainers, I’m sure I’ll be ready for the next game.” Miami led 46-44 at the half, but the Celtics scored nine of the first 10 points, capped by Rondo’s first basket of the game, a driving layup with 3 minutes gone in the third that gave Boston a 53-47 lead. In all, the Celtics scored 16 of the first 20 points of the second half; James missed three of four free throws during the span, and the only other points came on a 3-pointer by Wade. Shaquille O’Neal returned for Boston and was not much of a factor. He scored two points, with zero rebounds, in 8:29 for his first action of the postseason.
Grizzlies rally from 16 down, go up 2-1 on Thunder
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Zach Randolph had 21 points and a franchiserecord 21 rebounds, and the Memphis Grizzlies rallied from a 16-point deficit to stun the Oklahoma City Thunder 101-93 in overtime Saturday and grab a 2-1 lead in their Western Conference semifinal. The Grizzlies are trying to do something no NBA team has done in climbing from the No. 8 seed all the way to the Western Conference finals. They moved two wins away from that by remaining undefeated on their home court this postseason. They did it with an amazing comeback in a game the Grizzlies couldn’t have looked more out of synch or rusty early, but scored the first six points of overtime to finish off the victory.
Kevin Durant, the NBA’s scoring leader in the regular season and these playoffs, took only three shots in overtime and missed them all. He finished with 22 points, his lowest this postseason after averaging 31.6 points coming in. O.J. Mayo had 18 points off the bench. Mike Conley also scored 18, Marc Gasol had 16 and Tony Allen 10. Russell Westbrook had 23 points and 12 assists, but committed seven turnovers and fouled out late in overtime for the Thunder. Serge Ibaka had 14 points and James Harden 12. Oklahoma City was up 70-54 on Kendrick Perkins’ tip-in with 3:53 left in the third and seemed in control with Westbrook scoring 13 points in the period. Memphis erased that lead with a 13-2 run and outscored Oklahoma City 23-10 in the fourth quarter, then 15-7 in overtime. The Thunder hit just 3 of 12 in the extra period. With the score tied at 86, both teams had a chance to win in regulation. Thunder coach Scott Brooks took a timeout with 18 seconds to go, having to holler to get referee Ken Mauer’s attention in the roaring FedExForum. Durant missed a 20footer off the back rim as the shot clock buzzer sounded with 4 seconds left, but Randolph’s own 3 for the win clanked off the rim at the buzzer. Memphis took over in overtime. First, Allen drove for a layup, then Conley scored on a layup. Allen then hit two free throws for a 92-86 lead with 2:56 left. The Grizzlies polished the win off at the free throw line, hitting 9 of 12. The Grizzlies, coming off a three-day layoff that was their longest break in a couple weeks, didn’t give their sellout crowd much to cheer until late. Oklahoma City scored the first five points, and the Thunder did what worked so well Tuesday night by collapsing whenever Memphis tried to pass the ball into the paint. Memphis led 28-24 when the Thunder went on a 16-3 run and grabbed a 40-31 lead on a pair of free throws by Westbrook. Oklahoma City outscored Memphis 31-21 in the quarter and led 51-43 at halftime. Conley didn’t score until 4:45 left in the first half on a fast-break layup.
Ohio State’s Tressel to attend Tampa NCAA seminar
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — As part of his punishment for not revealing his knowledge of his players’ NCAA violations, Ohio State coach Jim Tressel will attend a five-day compliance seminar in June in Tampa, Fla. Ohio State spokesman Jim Lynch confirmed Saturday that Tressel would take part in the NCAA-sponsored event June 6-10 at a resort hotel on the waterfront. One of the topics of the compliance seminar — one of two put on by the NCAA this summer — is “Division I Major Infractions.” Meanwhile, Ohio State’s director of compliance is reviewing at least 50 car sales to Buckeyes athletes and relatives to see if they met NCAA rules, The Columbus Dispatch reported Saturday. Tressel was notified in April 2010 via emails from a Buckeyes fan and former player that Ohio State players were trading signed jerseys and other memorabilia to a Columbus tattoo parlor owner for cash and reduced-price tattoos. Even though his contract and NCAA rules required him to notify athletic director Gene Smith, Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee or the university’s compliance department, Tressel did not do that. It was not until more than nine months passed — and five players including quarterback Terrelle Pryor had been suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season — that Ohio State officials discovered the emails and confronted Tressel. He finally admitted he knew of the players getting improper benefits. Tressel was originally suspended for two games — later extended to the first five games this fall to match the punishment of the five players — and was fined $250,000, required to make a public apology and receive a public reprimand and to attend an NCAA compliance seminar. The NCAA is still investigating the actions of the 10-year coach of the Buckeyes. Ohio State and Tressel are scheduled to appear before the NCAA’s committee on infractions Aug. 12. The Dispatch reported that a car salesman who received game passes from Ohio State athletes handled many of the deals at two different dealerships. Ohio State has since taken the salesman, Aaron Kniffin, off the pass list. Athletes are prevented from receiving special deals not available to other students. They are not permitted to trade autographs for discounts. Both dealerships display signed Ohio State memorabilia in their showrooms. One car, a 2-year-old Chrysler 300 with fewer than 20,000 miles, was titled to thensophomore defensive player Thaddeus Gibson in 2009. Documents show the purchase price as $0. Gibson said he did not know why the title showed a zero for the purchase price and said he was still paying for the car. State law requires dealers to report accurate information about all car sales for tax purposes.

Sunday, May 8, 2011 transplant. Coming in third in the biggest race of her lengthy training career is hardly a bad thing. “He was fabulous today,” Ritvo said. “It went just the way we thought it would. He gave it his all. He finished up well.” Just not well enough to give Ritvo’s compelling journey a storybook finish. Mucho Macho Man went off at 9-1 behind favorite Dialed In. Jockey Rajiv Maragh put his horse in prime position and Mucho Macho Man had Animal Kingdom in his sights in the middle of the stretch. There just wasn’t enough kick to catch the winner. “At every point in the race that I needed something from him, he gave it to me,” said Maragh, who replaced Eibar Coa as the horse’s rider after Coa was injured in a fall this winter. “He was just third. He ran 110 percent.” Ritvo doesn’t see the third-place showing as the end of the story. “He’s only going to get better,” she said. “He’s only a June 15 foal. He’ll come back hopefully in a couple weeks (in the Preakness).” Mucho Macho Man burst onto the Derby trail with a resounding victory in the Risen Star Stakes. He followed it up with a game effort in the Louisiana Derby, finishing third despite losing a shoe early in the race. His rise thrust the spotlight onto Ritvo. She’s spent two decades in the game training alongside husband Tim but struggled for years with a degenerative heart disease that killed older brother Louis 15 years ago. She underwent a 17-hour transplant in November, 2008, and says she has felt better than she has her entire life. The 42-yearold trainer maintains her health by swallowing 30 pills a day and defies doctor’s orders by enthusiastically watching her horses run. Saturday was no different. She let loose, as she always does, when Mucho Macho Man turned for home with a shot.

Kentucky Derby Notebook
HISTORY MADE: LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Rosie Napravnik ended up making history in the Kentucky Derby. She just didn’t make the winner’s circle. The 23-year-old jockey posted the highest finish by a female rider when she guided Pants On Fire to ninth in Saturday’s Run for the Roses. The effort topped 11th-place finishes by Patricia Cooksey in 1984 aboard So Vague and Hall of Famer Julie Krone in 1995 atop Suave Prospect. Pants on Fire stayed with the leaders in the 19-horse field until the stretch, then held tough late. “I couldn’t have wished for a better trip,” Napravnik said. Napravnik had perhaps the best shot to become the first women jockey to capture the Derby with Pants on Fire, who burst onto the scene after taking the Louisiana Derby in March. The victory was part of a breakout spring for Napravnik, who won the riding title at the Fair Grounds. Bettors flocked to her horse in the Derby, making Pants On Fire the 8-1 second choice. Though her colt couldn’t chase down eventual winner Animal Kingdom, Napravnik was encouraged. “I think the best feeling was when I just kind of tapped him ... and I angled outside and I had some left and I was like, ‘Oh boy, I wonder where we’re going from here,”‘ she said. Meantime, trainer Kathy Ritvo’s first Derby went according to plan. Except, well, for the last part. Ritvo’s promising colt Mucho Macho Man ended up third when his bid to catch Animal Kingdom deep in the stretch fell short. It equaled the second best finish by a female trainer in the Derby. Ritvo nearly died from heart disease three years ago before receiving a lifesaving

Detroit’s Verlander throws second career no-hitter
TORONTO (AP) — With one out to go, Justin Verlander cracked a smile on the mound. He could afford to enjoy the moment, he’d seen this before. So had baseball fans — real recently, in fact. Verlander threw his second career no-hitter and the second in the big leagues this week, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 9-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday. “I was a lot more calm today,” Verlander said. “Obviously, there’s some adrenaline — you can’t help it — but having been through this situation before, I was definitely able to calm myself down a little bit easier than last time.” Minnesota’s Francisco Liriano pitched a no-hitter against the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night. Verlander barely missed a perfect game. The only runner he allowed came with one out in the eighth inning when J.P. Arencibia walked on a full count, with Verlander’s 12th pitch to the rookie just an inch or two outside. “It was as good as it gets,” Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. “He just missed by inches of being perfect. It really doesn’t get any better than that. That’s great stuff.” Verlander had no argument with the call by plate umpire Jerry Meals. “Right out of my fingertips, I knew it was just a hair outside and it was,” he said. “It was a ball and you’ve got to give Jerry a ‘Good job.’ He called it a ball and it was.” Verlander (3-3) struck out 12 in his first no-hitter against the Milwaukee Brewers on June 12, 2007. This time, he fanned Rajai Davis to end it for his fourth strikeout of the game. The overpowering right-hander threw 108 pitches, 74 for strikes, against a Blue Jays lineup missing ailing slugger Jose Bautista. Mixing fastballs that sizzled over 100 mph with an effective changeup, Verlan-
der became the 30th pitcher in major league history to throw multiple no-hitters, STATS LLC said. “He was unbelievable today,” Arencibia said. “Anytime on your 106th pitch when you’re hitting 100, I’d say it’s pretty ridiculous stuff.” Blue Jays rookie David Cooper popped to second on Verlander’s first pitch of the ninth. John McDonald followed with a grounder to second, and Verlander flashed a grin. With the crowd of 23,453 standing and cheering, Davis ended it by striking out swinging on a 2-2 breaking ball from the 2006 AL Rookie of the Year. Verlander calmly pumped his fist and smiled, then shared a hug with catcher Alex Avila before being mobbed by teammates near the mound. He was doused with a bucket of ice water by reliever Jose Valverde. “That was cold,” Verlander said. “That and the beer shower I got in here was cold, too.” His closest brush came in the fifth when Edwin Encarnacion hit a line drive that glanced off Verlander’s arm. Verlander scrambled toward third base to track down the ball and made a hurried throw that first baseman Miguel Cabrera scooped. Left with a bruise on his forearm, Verlander kept the swelling down by having a trainer rub a can of Red Bull on the injury. “I was kind of like a boxer, you know, you see them in between rounds where they put the cold stuff on. I was doing that with my forearm,” Verlander said. “I’ve got a pretty decent lump there. Thankfully they did a great job, they got the swelling down and allowed me to continue going out there.” Verlander had another close call on the final out of the sixth when Cabrera had to leap to snare Corey Patterson’s sharp liner. For a while, it looked as if Verlander was dueling someone else: Milwaukee’s Yovani Gallardo. Because at the
same time Verlander was dominating at Rogers Centre, Gallardo was making his own no-hit bid for Milwaukee at Busch Stadium. Gallardo’s try ended when St. Louis’ Daniel Descalso singled leading off the eighth inning. The hit came just a few minutes before Verlander’s lone walk. A season after Roy Halladay threw two no-hitters — a perfect game, then a gem in his postseason debut — and helped stamp 2010 as the Year of the Pitcher, there’s evidence that 2011 could mean more of the same. Several pitchers have come close before missing this year, and Cliff Lee struck out 16 in a losing effort Friday night. Verlander helped set things right for Detroit pitchers in the no-hitter department: Last June, Armando Galarraga of the Tigers was deprived of a perfect game when umpire Jim Joyce blew a call on what should’ve been the 27th and final out. Prior to Verlander, the last Detroit pitcher to throw a no-hitter was Jack Morris, who did it at Comiskey Park against the Chicago White Sox on April 7, 1984. “Just as good as the first,” Verlander said. It was the 17th time there have been two major league no-hitters within a five-day span and the first since Al Leiter for Florida against Colorado on May 11, 1996, and Dwight Gooden for the New York Yankees against Seattle on May 14, according to STATS LLC. Verlander has pitched two of the seven no-hitters in Tigers history. Virgil Trucks also had two for Detroit, both in 1952. “It wouldn’t surprise me if (Verlander) gets another one at some point in his career,” Leyland said. “That’s how good his stuff can be.” It was the fourth time the Blue Jays have been no-hit since entering the AL in 1977. The last was by Texas’ Nolan Ryan, who threw his record seventh no-hitter to

Avila and Jhonny Peralta homered for the Tigers, who have won four of five. Blue Jays left-hander Ricky Romero (2-4), who has lost four of his past five starts, allowed six runs and five hits in 3 1-3 innings. He walked two and struck out two. Romero was scratched from his last start Thursday at Tampa Bay with soreness in his left side, and pushed back two days to face the Tigers. Romero breezed through the first two innings but struggled in the third, giving
Texas’ Michael Young (10) hits a solo home run during the first inning of the Rangers’ win over the Yankees, Saturday.

up three runs. Scott Sizemore drew a bases-loaded walk, Brandon Inge scored on a wild pitch and Magglio Ordonez added an RBI grounder. Detroit used the long ball to double its advantage in the fourth. Peralta made it 4-0 with a one-out drive to left, his second. R yan Raburn doubled and Avila chased Romero with a tworun shot to right, his sixth. Rangers 7, Yankees 5 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Julio Borbon drove in three runs, including the goahead run with a squeeze bunt, and Texas held on after blowing an early fiverun lead. With Mitch Moreland running toward home on a 1-1 pitch in the sixth, Borbon laid down the bunt and almost beat the throw to first. That broke a 5-all tie before Michael Young had an RBI single, his fourth hit, later in the inning. Young homered and Borbon had a two-run triple as the Rangers built a 5-0 lead after two innings off Bartolo Colon. Arthur Rhodes (1-1), the third of five Texas pitchers, struck out the only two batters he faced. Neftali Feliz worked the ninth for his sixth save. Moreland, who had three hits, led off the bottom of the sixth with a double off Boone Logan (1-2) before going to third on Chris Davis’ single. Borbon followed with the squeeze bunt.
Indians 4, Angels 3 ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Alex White pitched six innings for his first major league win and Cleveland’s Shin-Soo Choo doubled home the tying and goahead runs to snap an 0for -18 drought since his arrest on DUI charges. White (0-1) allowed three runs and seven hits, including a two-run homer by Vernon Wells, in his second major league start. He struck out six and walked two. Tony Sipp and Vinnie Pestano each pitched a scoreless inning and Chris Perez worked a perfect ninth for his 10th save in 11 chances. Jered Weaver (6-2) went six innings, allowing four runs, seven hits and two walks without striking out anyone.
Giants 3, Rockies 2 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Mike Fontenot hit a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning to drive in Aaron Rowand for San Francisco’s second walkoff win in two nights. Rowand and Freddy Sanchez hit consecutive singles off reliever Felipe Paulino (0-3) to begin the rally. After a pitching change, Franklin Morales threw a wild pitch that sailed over the head of catcher Chris Iannetta and advanced both runners. Fontenot then hit a deep fly to right to easily score Rowand. Brian Wilson (2-1) pitched one scoreless inning for the Giants.
Byrd charges into lead with Saturday 67 SPORTS
Roswell Daily Record
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The crowd was so big and boisterous Saturday that it made Jonathan Byrd a little uncomfortable. Seeing his name atop the leaderboard? Byrd is getting used to that. The guy who only last October was worried about keeping his PGA Tour card ran off a blistering stretch of birdies in the Wells Fargo Championship for a 5under 67, giving him a one-shot lead as he goes for his third win in seven months. “Twelve months ago, I would never have thought that could happen,” he said. “But now, the way my game is, why couldn’t it happen? I’m playing well. I feel like I have all the tools to play well. I’m just going to play, and then when it’s all over, I’ll enjoy whatever I’ve done.” Byrd was at 15-under 201, a score he didn’t imagine until his hot streak. He was in the mix with a halfdozen other players who were trying to keep in range of Pat Perez when Byrd ran off five birdies in six holes to start the back nine. The one hole he didn’t birdie might have been his best putt — a 7-footer that broke sharply to the right. “You won’t believe how much this putt breaks,” Phil Mickelson said, standing to the back of the green after his own remarkable par. Byrd poured it into the heart, birdied the next two holes and was on his way. Perez had a hard-fought 70, missing fairways early in the round and rarely converting birdie chances throughout the back nine until a slight mistake turned into his best-looking shot. Taking a little off a 7-iron, he pulled it slightly on the 17th and saw it sail right at the flag and stop some 5 feet behind the pin

Jonathan Byrd hits his approach shot into the 18th hole during the third round of the Wells Fargo Championships, Saturday. Byrd takes a one-shot lead into today’s final round after a third-round 67. for a birdie. “It was kind of scrappy all the way around,” Perez said. “I played pretty good to shoot 70, I guess.” Former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover (69) and for mer British Open champion Stewart Cink (68), who have not won since capturing their majors in the summer of 2009, were three shots back. The top eight players were sep-
arated by five shots, which isn’t much on a Quail Hollow course where last year Rory McIlroy closed with a 62 for his only PGA Tour victory. It starts with Byrd and Perez, players whose contrast starts with their pace of play. Byrd is on the deliberate side, while Perez wastes no time. On the sixth hole, with Byrd in the group ahead, the caddies were no more than 10 feet off the green when
Perez had hit his tee shot into the par 3. Perez isn’t the least bit worried. “I wait every single shot, every single day on the PGA Tour, so I’ve gotten really used to doing that,” Perez said. Missing from the mix is Mickelson. The three-time Masters champion was in range and was poised to make a move with a brilliant par save on the 12th, a
mini-flop from a downhill lie to a green that ran away and broke sharply to the left. It stopped inches away. But he flubbed a bunker shot on the 14th to lose an easy chance at birdie, then hit tee shots into the water on the par-5 15th (bogey) and the par-3 17th (double bogey) on his way to a 74. Mickelson has hit five balls in the water this week. J.B. Holmes had an amazing stretch on the back nine — five shots to play two holes when he holed a 5-iron on the 15th for an albatross, the rarest score in golf, and followed that with a birdie on the 16th. That led to a 65, although he was six shots behind, along with R yder Cup captain Davis Love III, who had a 68. The excitement was almost too much for Byrd. He was playing with Mickelson, the biggest draw at Quail Hollow, and while it wasn’t the first time, he could feel the energy. The gallery caved in around him going from green-to-tee on just about every hole, with young fans holding out hands to be tapped. Mickelson gets that all the time — Byrd, not so much. “I’ve never high-fived so much in my life,” Byrd said. That only concer ned him because he doesn’t play with a glove, and part of him wondered if fans had just put on sunscreen. “Phil is used to that,” he said. “He just flashes that smile. I want to keep my head down.” Players wore black ribbons in honor of Seve Ballesteros, who died early Saturday in Spain. PGA Tour officials said play will stop at 3:08 p.m. on Sunday for one minute in memory of the Spanish great.

Seve dies at 54
MADRID (AP) — Seve Ballesteros, a five-time major champion whose passion and gift for imaginative shotmaking invigorated European golf and the Ryder Cup, has died from complications of a cancerous brain tumor. He was 54. A statement on Ballesteros’ website Saturday said the golf great died peacefully at 2:10 a.m. local time, surrounded by his family at his home in Pedrena, in northern Spain. Ballesteros was as inspirational in Europe as Arnold Palmer was in America, a handsome figure who feared no shot and often played from where no golfer had ever been. England’s Lee Westwood, No. 1 in the world rankings, said it was a “sad day” for golf. “Lost an inspiration, genius, roll (sic) model, hero and friend,” Westwood posted Saturday on Twitter. “Seve made European golf what it is today. RIP Seve.” Spanish golf federation president Gonzaga Escauriaza said Ballesteros, an “icon” of Spanish golf, transformed the sport. “Severiano Ballesteros was a unique, unrepeatable person,” Escauriaza said. “We have to recognize we are where we are now, that golf is a popular sport ... in large part to Severiano Ballesteros. We all owe him a lot.” In a long list of spectacular shots, perhaps the most memorable came from a parking lot next to the 16th fairway at Royal L ytham & St. Annes in the 1979 British Open. Leading by two shots in the final round, he drove his ball into the lot, had a car removed to get his free drop, then fired his second shot to 15 feet and made birdie on his way to his first major. “He was a man who got into trouble. Only for Seve, there was no such thing as trouble,” Gary Player once said. “He could manufacture shots like a genius.” His last challenge came from an unbeatable foe — cancer. Ballesteros won a record 50 times on the European tour, his first as a 19-year-old in the Dutch Open, his last when he was 38 at the 1995 Peugeot Open in his native Spain. That also was his last year playing in the R yder Cup, where he had a 20-12-5 record in eight appearances. He was captain in 1997 when Europe won at Valderrama. Ballesteros and wife Carmen divorced in 2004. They had three children. The Spaniard stayed active in golf after he stopped playing regularly, mainly through golf course design.

NM to train health professionals to help elderly
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Doctors and other health professionals would help spot — and report — financial fraud against the elderly under a new training program set up by the state of New Mexico. The idea is that medical professionals are in a unique position to spot signs of financial abuse and then refer at-risk patients to adult services professionals or state securities regulators. A spokeswoman for the state Regulation and Licensing Department's Securities Division, Bernice Geiger, said that it’s important to involve doctors because they’re able to diagnose patients who have mild cognitive impairment
and therefore might be susceptible to investment scams. Doctors also have the trust of their patients. But, Geiger said, a lot of physicians aren’t aware the Securities Division can help when someone is being exploited financially. Exploitation can come from financial advisers “and sometimes, unfortunately, family members,” Geiger said. The Regulation & Licensing Department says figures show more than a third of Americans over the age of 71 have mild cognitive impair ment or Alzheimer’s disease, and that can leave them particularly susceptible to investment swindles or other financial abuse.
The president of the New Mexico Medical Society, Dr. L ynn Bryant, said many doctors already watch for such signs in their older patients, and that the new program is worth considering. Bryant also sounded a note of caution, saying physicians have only a limited amount of time to talk with their elderly patients, and the focus is on medical care and safety in prescription use. “It depends on what forms they want filled out, what kinds of things they want done, whether it’s possible to do,” she said. New Mexico is one of 22 states in a newly launched collaboration to help spot financial exploitation
against older Americans. The program is modeled after a successful pilot program in Texas that’s being adopted by the other states, Geiger said. Starting this summer, the New Mexico Securities Division will work with gover nmental agencies and medical professionals to implement the prevention program. Doctors who participate in the free training will have a clinicians’ guide to help them pinpoint someone who has been exploited financially, she said. For example, physicians will learn about tell-tale signs, such as patients who say someone is getting into their accounts or money is disappearing or that others
made in infrastructure to ensure reliability of its hundreds of miles of transmission lines and power generating stations. When PNM initially made the request last summer, the utility estimated that investments in its system would total more than $575 million through 2011. At the time, the utility was seeking a rate increase of about 21 percent. Negotiations with the commission’s staf f, the attorney general’s office and others helped cut the proposed rate increase in half. Now, the rate hike would average nearly 11 percent for residential and business customers. That could mean another $6 to $7 a month for average residential customers next year when the phased-in increase would be complete. Under the proposal, the increase would result in $85 million in annual additional revenues for the expansion of substations
and power lines and upgrades at five power plants. An additional $20 million could be recouped for more infrastructure investments made through the end of 2012, if approved by regulators. Pat Vincent-Collawn, PNM president and CEO, said the proposal is fair and balanced. “It is in the long-term best interests of customers because it balances what we need to provide safe and reliable power, reduces the amount of the increase, provides more help for low-income customers and limits other charges customers could see on their bills,” she said in a statement issued Friday. Utilities must borrow large sums to make investments to keep service reliable, and PNM has argued that having adequate cost recovery through a rate increase would be critical to the company’s ability to access capital at a reasonable cost. Narrowing the gap between revenue and

Other signs could be that elderly patients say their relatives are pressing them for money, that they’re running out of money to pay the bills or they don’t feel confident making financial decisions. A Regulation and Licensing spokesman, S.U. Mahesh, said it would not be mandatory for doctors to report to the agency. New Mexico wants to train a minimum of 200 physicians plus nurses, dentists, pharmacists and other medical professionals who work with senior citizens, Geiger said. The financial exploitation prevention training will be
done through continuing medical education programs. A 2010 elder fraud survey by the independent Investor Protection Trust found more than 7 million older Americans, or one in five citizens over the age of 65, have been victims of some kind of financial swindle. In April, an Albuquerque insurance salesman, Samuel McMaster Jr., was sentenced to 12 years in prison for stealing nearly $450,000 from mostly elderly investors in a financial scheme. McMaster pleaded guilty last year to 26 felony charges, including securities fraud, sale of an unregistered security and sale of a security by an unlicensed broker-dealer.
Public hearing for PNM rate hike request starts Monday ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — New Mexico regulators have a tough decision to make, and no matter what they decide, not everyone is going to be happy. The Public Regulation Commission has to decide whether to approve a proposal by the state’s largest electric utility — Public Service Company of New Mexico — that would mean higher rates for its 500,000 residential and business customers. The utility is scheduled to present its case during a public hearing that starts Monday in Santa Fe. The case has been months in the making, with negotiations between industry groups and others and the preparation of reams of expert testimony both for and against the proposal. And customers are paying attention to all of it as the economy continues with its fits and starts. “We’re getting more calls and emails than I’ve ever gotten on a PNM case

TAMPA, Fla. — Irene Or nelas O’Rorke, bor n Sept. 2, 1937, in MacAdoo, Texas, died April 22, 2011, at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa, of complications from arthritis leading to heart failure. She was preceded in death by her parents Pablo Or nelas and Nieves Ornelas Torres; her stepfather Joe Torres; brother David Ornelas; her husband Jackie Eugene O’Rorke; and daughter Pamela Cheryl. She is survived by her sons, Dr. Paul O’Rorke, wife Elizabeth whom she loved as a daughter, and Kenneth O’Rorke, wife Angela. Former daughtersin-law, Dora O’Rorke and Jennifer O’Rorke, were loyal and loving in their care for Irene until the end. She cherished them along with her grandchildren, Daniel, Megan, Carson, Jaclyn, Kyle and Alissa. Irene was raised in Roswell, N.M., and graduated from Roswell High School, where she was an honor student. She married Jackie Eugene O’Rorke in 1956 at Walker Air Force Base Chapel. As a typical Air Force wife, she followed her husband in tours to Okinawa and Alaska. The family finally settled in Tampa.
from folks who want us to say no,” said Commissioner Jason Marks. Consumer advocacy groups and environmentalists say the utility has not justified the need for a rate increase. They also argue that higher monthly electric bills would hurt customers who are barely getting by. Mike Donnelly, the advocacy director for AARP New Mexico, said a few extra dollars in monthly expenses is a big deal for senior citizens who have not seen an increase in their Social Security benefits in two years. “Even the state Legislature this last session understood that now is not the time to increase any sort of taxes or fees to the public,” he said. “It bothers us that PNM does not have the same empathy for what’s going on.” But flipping the switch and having the light bulb turn on comes at a cost. PNM is asking regulators for the increase mainly to recoup investments
When her children became self-suf ficient, Irene followed the new role for modern women obtaining a BA in computer science from the University of South Florida and an MBA from Tampa College. She worked as a computer analyst for IBM until she retired, and then worked for a second retirement at GTE, finally finishing her working years at Charles Fendig Library in Tampa. Irene, in dedicated oldest daughter Hispanic tradition, had to control and teach the brothers and sisters who survive her, Albert Or nelas, of Beaumont Calif., Joe Richard Ornelas, wife Rosa, and Erlinda Vale, husband Silverio, of Roswell, and Paula Higgins, of Tampa. Irene also embraced two younger sisters. bor n after she left home, Rosa Sosa, husband Robert, and Mary Dean, husband Ben, with her loving generosity. Irene is also survived by many nieces and nephews who will always remember how she loved and cared for them. Irene was well ahead of her time as she managed a multi-faceted life while keeping her family and friends first. She was a blessing to all as God intended. Please send rememberances of Irene to email@example.com. She chose Neptune Society services and an Irish wake was given by her family in Tampa.

expenses will help the system operate at a lower cost, Vincent-Collawn has said. As part of the deal, PNM agreed that base electricity rates will not increase again before 2014. The proposal also limits the amount PNM can recover for fuel costs and energy efficiency programs over the next three years and sets limits on the amount the utility can recover to meet state renewable energy mandates. The utility would also have the ability to recover actual costs to comply with state or federal requirements or mandates that became effective after June 30, 2010. Marks said the key for the commission will be determining what the proposal’s total cost to consumers will be and whether that is just and reasonable. Critics of the plan, including the group New Energy Economy, have argued that PNM failed to prepare for the future

knowing that tougher environmental regulations could be imposed and it now wants consumers to pay for it through higher rates. New Energy Economy executive director Mariel Nanasi contends the proposal violates the regulatory principles of being just and reasonable. Critics have also complained about the pay of PNM’s top executives, several of whom have shared in millions of dollars in bonuses and incentive pay. In just one day last month, Marks said his office received 70 phone calls about the rate case. He gets about 20 emails a week related to the case. Despite the stories of hardships, the commission has to consider the law and how much PNM has invested in its system. “If they can prove a cost, we have to let them recover it, but we can’t give them the benefit of the doubt,” Marks said.

Sex and the Bible
Dear Editor, And I quote: “As an apricot tree stands out in the forest, my lover stands above the young men in town. All I want is to sit in his shade, to taste and savor his delicious love. He took me home with him for a festive meal, but his eyes feasted on me! “Oh! Give me something refreshing to eat — and quickly! Apricots, raisins — anything. I’m about to faint with love! “His left hand cradles my head, and his right arm encircles my waist!” The preceding is from the Bible, Song of Solomon 2: 3-6 (message). God celebrates sex. In fact, He invented it. He encourages it! However there is more to sex than the physical release one gets. God created sex as a total experience; so not only is there physical release but there is emotional, mental and spiritual release also. God’s idea and intention for sex is so much more than most men and women understand. God intended one man and one woman because of this continued intimacy. In fact He meant it to be so intimate that He refers to this relationship as “one flesh.” Genesis 2:24 “For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.” The full extent of pleasure from a sexual relationship can only be understood when a man and woman are committed to the care, welfare and pleasure of each other for the long haul. The fact that Mr. Daniels, in his letter printed April 27, proclaims that Fundamentalist and Evangelicals are always so “uptight” about sex, shows how little he knows about Fundamentalist and Evangelicals. Or that he understands the true nature and fulfillment of the sex act. A man or a woman will not go to hell for sex outside of marriage, that is a symptom of the problem ... the problem isn’t what they do; it is what they don’t do. Sin, all sin, is just a symptom of the real problem. They do not honor God with their heart, soul and body. So looking at the two examples he gave of the 41- and 31-year-old women ... does God forbid them having sex outside a marriage relationship? Yes, He does. Will they be sent to hell because of it? No, they have already condemned themselves through their selfishness of heart and lack of self-control. Unless, of course, they are believers who had a weak moment and “fell off the wagon”; but that is a different letter altogether. By the way, I am a Bible College graduate and a student of the Bible for 35-plus years, I have never read in the Bible where masturbation is directly forbidden. Where would I find, “Thou shall not masturbate!” Inquiring minds want to know. As he attempts to “rip us a new one” because we “are so judgmental and cruel,” Mr. Daniels, himself, came across judgmental and cruel, especially since his observations were built on his prejudices, opinion and lack of understanding. Sincerely, Pastor Dan Parsons Roswell
What a rally!
Dear Editor: The rally was held by, or for, Congressman Steve Pearce to whip up the crowd to march (literally) on a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service meeting. The purpose of the meeting was to hear public comment on the proposal to add the sand dune lizard to the Endangered Species List. I would estimate that there were about 200-300 people at the rally as well as TV cameras, photographers and reporters. I was surprised that one of the reporters was from Albuquerque. The opening prayer began well, but ended as a political statement. There were about 10 speakers before Congressman Pearce spoke. Two or three were quite good speakers but they all had the same theme: the Endangered Species List will cause devastating job loss and the ruin of our country. The clear intent of their argument was to make every working man or woman in the audience fear that they would lose their job if the sand dune lizard is protected. When I hear broad and unsubstantiated assertions about overwhelming job losses, I start to question the speaker. Are we hearing the truth, half truths, distortions or simply slogans? There was a fiery, fast-talking female speaker who related a conversation she had with, I believe, someone from the USFWS. When the government official asked what data there was to support the claim of a loss of jobs, the speaker said “we don’t need any data” and went on to talk about the spotted owl history as a way of supporting her assertion. Interestingly, research at the University of Wisconsin–Madison by environmental scientists published in a sociology journal argued that logging jobs had been in a long decline and that environmental protection was not a significant factor in job loss.Yet, when conservatives are confronted with compiled studies about the lizard they dismiss them and claim that the science is “flawed.” Sound familiar? Naturally, some of the speakers inferred; no, they said outright that the liberal environmental effort was associ-
LETTERS ated with socialism or communism. At that point I flashed back to WWII movie newsreels showing foreign leaders exhorting the masses to march ... but here it was only to the USFWS meeting and really give them a piece of “our” mind. A few of the speakers worshipfully honored the wisdom of the founding fathers in creating the Constitution. Unfortunately, none of them owned up to the fact that the Constitution omitted women’s rights (I wonder if any of the applauding women in the audience realized that?), free speech, the beloved Second Amendment right, and the rest of the Bill of Rights. The Constitution was created by compromise ... not by a small group saying “it’s my way or the highway.” The framers had the wisdom to know that the Constitution they all signed wasn’t perfect but would have to be amended as times and society changed. During their reflection on this history, I noticed that everybody conveniently forgot that the Great Recession and staggering job loss happened during the George W. Bush years; a time when Congressman Pearce was voting with G.W. 95 percent of the time. Oh well, back to the rally. Some of the speakers, including the congressman, said that this rally was not about the lizard. It was really about taking control of our government. I interpreted it as sticking a finger in the eye of the government not because it was necessary, but just because our nation of laws allows us to. I really came unhinged when the congressman tried to convince the audience that if they allowed the lizard to be protected that they would lose their jobs at a time when inflation is “skyrocketing.” I yelled that it was not skyrocketing. We are at the 10 year average for inflation: 2.7 percent. I apologize for my few rude outbursts at the rally, but I just couldn’t help myself. I love my country and I want a better life for my countrymen. Sadly, I feel that many of the audience would accept a smaller life we are being offered in the name of austerity. Sincerely, Chuck Russell Roswell
Golf course is for golfing
Dear Editor: On the afternoon of April 30, 2011, a Saturday, I was golfing with a friend of mine. Ahead of us was a threesome. We tee’d off on the 14th hole which goes towards the tennis courts. This hole has a water hazard on it. As I was preparing to hit my second shot to the green, I noticed there were people sitting on the fringe of the green. I thought somebody ahead of us got sick and had to sit down. I then realized they weren’t golfers at all. So, I hit my shot to the green. To our amazement there was a dressed up young couple with four others taking pictures of them at various angles. They were totally oblivious to us. We said nothing to them and proceeded to tee off on the 15th hole. In the middle of the 14th fairway a couple of golfers who were behind us summoned me over. I told them what was going on and now there were three children (that

belonged to the photo crew) playing in front of the water hazards as well. The golfers called the pro shop but he could not come out and confront the people because he was at the desk by himself. The golfers whistled at the children and motioned them to move out of the way. These kids moved but not totally out of the way. They did not realize that an errant shot could cause seriously injury and they wanted to continue to play around the water. This photo session with kids playing around the water lasted about 20 minutes. Some have proposed a fence. Perhaps a high fence around the green that progressively gets lower going west on Riverside would help deter juveniles intent on damaging property as well as walkers with or without dogs, since the green would be a “cul de sac” that they could not walk through. Another thought is to drain the water and make it one large sand trap. This option would still require the golfer to decide to “lay up” and be safe or to “go for it” and risk being in a sand trap that is not a greenside bunker, but a fairway bunker. This would present a new challenge on our course. One thing is perfectly clear: take away the attractiveness of a site and people and animals will not gravitate to it. The 14th hole water hazard attracts many beasts and humans. Remember, it is against the law to hit a golf ball in a city park and rightfully so. So golfers must pay for the privilege to playing golf on golf courses. If you are not a golfer please use any one of our fine, free city parks instead of infringing on those who paid to use the golf course. Thank you. Larry D. Griffin Roswell
Rising fuel prices
Dear Editor: Do you like the price of gasoline at nearly $4 per gallon? If so, you will be even happier when the price goes to $5 per gallon. When it hits $6, you will be absolutely giddy. To who do we owe a debt of gratitude for these joyous possibilities? None other than Barack Obama, that’s who. He is determined to protect all of us from the evils involved in drilling for oil in the Continental U.S., in the Gulf of Mexico and in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. He has cleverly designed a plan to push these evils off onto other countries. He loaned $2 billion to Petrobras for drilling in Brazil. He just loaned $1 billion to Pemex, the Mexican oil company, to drill in the Gulf of Mexico, where he prohibits drilling by any U.S. company. Obama wants to replace oil with alternative fuels here in the U.S. To further this goal, Obama is pushing electric cars. These vehicles will almost travel from Roswell to Vaughn on one eight-hour charge. Using current D.C. logic, the government need only mandate that Vaughn move 10 miles closer to Roswell. Problem solved! Obama recently announced that he will seek a second term as president. Are we lucky or what? W. F. Brainerd Roswell

Is new Warner Music buyer a sucker or savant?
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Billionaire Len Blavatnik is spending $1.3 billion to buy Warner Music Group Corp. a decade into a steep decline in CD sales for the music industry. That could make him a sucker in line for many more years of slashing staff, or a savant for buying the company at the start of a digital music revolution. The deal values Warner Music at $3 billion including debt and cash — even higher than the $2.6 billion it sold for in 2004 when the music industry was twice as big. War ner Music was formed in 1929 as a way for Warner Bros. Pictures to acquire the copyrights of music for films. War ner Bros. Records was created in 1958 to distribute movie soundtracks and went on to discover such artists as Neil Young and Grateful Dead. Today, the company is home to Faith Hill, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Linkin Park and Josh Groban. A decade-long battle with online piracy has devastated the industry. Although Warner is believed to have coped with it better than other recording companies, some industry analysts praised Warner’s sellers for cashing out. Standard & Poor’s equity analyst Tuna Amobi calls it “one of the best deals in the music space of all time” — at least for the sellers. His opinion of the buyer wasn’t so rosy. “Any time you have deeppocketed investors in some glamor business, anything can happen,” Amobi said. It’s possible Blavatnik’s purchase, through the Access Industries company he controls, could turn out to be wise. He’s essentially buying into an industry that can’t get much worse. And he’ll be able to reap benefits from cutting duplicate jobs if he successfully bids for Britain’s EMI Group Ltd., which Citibank is expected to sell soon. Meanwhile, digital innovations could be preparing the industry for a revival. Recent sales figures suggest the deal is well timed. Sales of albums in the United States increased 1.4 percent in the first four months of the year to 146 million, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Although U.S. sales of CDs fell by 9 percent during the same period, that’s less than the 20 percent drop in 2010. If the gains continue, it could mark the first time that album unit sales, helped by digital downloads, have grown since 2004. The lift didn’t just happen because of one-time factors such as a slew of top artists releasing albums all at once, according to Nielsen analytics vice president David Bakula. Not even discounts can account for the gains; track sales rose even though most new ones now sell for $1.29 apiece, up from 99 cents a couple years ago.
Healthglide Blk or Natural $139.99
Still, there’s little question that people are paying less for music and expecting more. Total U.S. sales were just $6.3 billion last year, down from $14.3 billion at the peak in 2000. People are demanding better ways to store, play and share music, on any device and at any time, and they don’t want to pay a lot for it, said Adam Klein, the chief executive of digital music club eMusic. Consumers’ “perception of value has changed and will continue to change,“ he said. ”The industry has got to move quite quickly to keep up with that or piracy will remain rampant.” Amazon.com Inc. has a new service that enables people to share, review and listen to music without having to store it on personal devices at all. Google Inc. and Apple Inc. are believed to be working on something similar. Digital music is partly being held back by the huge costs of running music labels now and the high royalties they must demand from innovators, Klein said. Cutting costs will help foster the technology that will entice more people to pay for music. It’s a painful process that will undoubtedly mean more layoffs. Warner now has just 3,700 employees, down from 5,100 in late 2003. Blavatnik, 53, doesn’t face such hurdles blindly. The Russian-born investor was part of the group led by Chief Executive Edgar Bronfman Jr. that bought the company from T ime War ner Inc. in 2004. He served on its board until 2008 and still has about a 2 percent stake. Those investors slashed payrolls and took other measures such as signing artists to all-encompassing rights deals, which gave Warner Music revenue from concerts and merchandise to cope with declines in recorded music. They took the company public a year later to help recoup their investment. Bronfman and partners Thomas H. Lee and Bain Capital have agreed to vote their combined 56 percent stake in favor of the deal. It would pay shareholders $8.25 per share when it closes. That’s expected to happen by September. Investors have already gotten back their $1.05 billion investment, plus 30 percent more thanks to special dividends and management fees over the years. The sale means they’ve nearly doubled their money. “We believe this transaction is an exceptional value-maximizing opportunity that serves the best interests of stockholders as well as the best interests of music fans, our recording artists and songwriters, and the wonderful people of this company,” Bronfman said in a statement. Blavatnik may need to acquire other companies to achieve bigger cost savings to make the business work. Many people believe his

Musicians Eric Clapton, right, and Michael Buble, left, CDs on display at Best Buy in Mountain View, Calif., Friday. Warner Music Group Corp., the world's third-largest recording company with such artists as Eric Clapton, Michael Buble and Paramore, is being sold for about $1.3 billion as a global decline in CD sales weighs down the industry. decision to keep Bronfman as CEO means that Blavatnik is eyeing a bid for EMI, which Bronfman has tried and failed to buy in the past. Citibank is looking to sell EMI after seizing it from Guy Hands’ Terra Firma private equity group in February. Other groups that lost out on bidding for thirdranked Warner — including No. 2 music company Sony Corp. — are also looking for parts that may be discarded from this deal, should
antitrust regulators require that or should Warner need to raise cash. In one possible scenario, Warner’s new owner would try to buy No. 4 EMI in order to reap the benefit of slashing staf f at a combined company. It would then shed certain music labels or get rid of one of the publishing divisions to satisfy regulators. Vivendi SA’s Universal Music Group, ranked No. 1, is also looking to buy parts of War ner, EMI or both.
Easing worries about the sale is the fact that Blavatnik understands the digital business, said Fred Goodman, a contributing editor at Rolling Stone magazine and author of “Fortune’s Fool: Edgar Bronfman Jr., War ner Music, and an Industry in Crisis.” Blavatnik once licensed music recordings from Warner for an Internet and cellphone service he operated in Russia. “Many of the people who were interested in buying War ner Music were not
really interested in doing anything other than managing it down ... making the company smaller and smaller and taking profits out by shrinking,” Goodman said. “I think Blavatnik’s one of the few guys where you think that might not be the case.” War ner Music’s stock rose 28 cents, or 3.5 percent, to close Friday at $8.18. It hit its 52-week high earlier in the day at $8.24, a penny short of the offer price.

The Summer Concerts in the Park Series offers music for all, relaxing e venings and family fun. MARTHA D. URQUIDES-STAAB
PHOTOS COURTESY OF CUIC GONZALES
Summer nights in Roswell have just become more exciting. Sounds of classic rock, blue grass, country and jazz will soon fill the air in Cahoon Park on Friday nights. The family-friendly sixth annual Summer Concerts in the Park series will kick off June 3 at 6:30 p.m. in Cahoon Park. It’s a plethora of cultures and diversity in an art form everyone will love and enjoy and its family and cost friendly. Getting ready for this series has been an interesting road for the series founder and event director Cuitlahuac “Cuic” Gonzalez. This event began in 2006 and it’s been getting bigger and better every year. “We used to have to beg musicians to come and play for us; now with the success of the event we have options and sometimes have to turn people away,” said Gonzalez. This event has given the opportunity for local musicians to shine and provide the city a new annual event to look forward to. “Our philosophy is provide for those budding musicians and also provide the city with music and with a wide variety so everyone can enjoy it, not just a specific genre,” said Gonzalez. This year Gonzalez has a new asset in his series staff, Tom Blake. Blake has helped with the technical aspects of this year’s event but quickly became the right-hand man
to add something special to this already successful team. With the popularity of the series, Gonzalez and Blake will listen to the bands auditioning for their place on the summer calendar and hand pick those that will headline this summer. “I think it’s wonderful that the city of Roswell has allowed to showcase the musical arts and I’m happy to help out with the talent as much as I can,” said Blake. Gonzalez’s hard work has not gone unnoticed. The event won “Program of the Year” in 2009. “I want to express my gratitude to the musicians, without them we can’t run this program, and the public’s support,” said Gonzales. The concerts offer a safe environment for fun, and are also neighborhood friendly. Blake and his crew test the surrounding parts of the park for noise volume as a courtesy of those surrounding neighborhoods. After this event wraps for the summer, expect surveys to be handed out to see what the public thinks to make the following event better for the public. Every year the music alternates and, with the work that goes into this event, it has become a legacy in the Parks and Recreation Department. Credit also goes to the wonderful sponsors who help bring this event to life: Hampton Inn, Roswell Radio, Ginsberg Music and many more who have donated time and efforts to this event. Concession stands will be open and bands will be selling their music and memorabilia. Everyone is encouraged to come to the park with lawn chairs, blankets and enjoy the music. For more information call Gonzalez at 624-6796.

Dad’s control over son becomes less influential over time
Q: As a dad, how much control should I have over our 17-year-old son when it comes to dating? Juli: Let’s start out with the unpleasant truth that you actually have no control over what your 17-year-old does about much of anything. If you ever had control when he was younger, those days are long gone. In fact, by trying to control his behavior, you’re likely to do more damage than good, either prompting him to rebel or impeding his maturity as a young man. So, instead, let’s use the word influence. Your role as a parent needs to shift to one of mentor or coach, guiding your son with encouragement, advice and good questions. Hopefully, you have spent the past 17 years instilling the values in him that now shape his decisions. Although he may still respect and value your opinion on issues like dating and sexuality, his own beliefs will guide him more than yours will. Even as he determines his own values, you still have authority regarding his behavior while he is living in your home, eating your food and driving your car. Use that authority not to be heavy-handed, but to set healthy boundaries that will both train and protect your son. For example, he should respect a reasonable curfew and show honor to the girl he dates by not putting her in compromising situations. Recognize that an interest in girls and dating is normal for a young man his age. Talk with him about what his standards and values are. You might even ask him how involved he would like you to be in his dating relationships going forward. Express the desire to be a sounding board for him as he faces challenges and decisions in the future. Perhaps the most important influence you can be for your son during these late teen years is to cast a vision

for him. Remind your son of the character you see in him, and help him envision the husband you’d like him to be someday. Q: I think my daughter uses her iPhone too much. Even for a teenager, it’s excessive. Is there such a thing as an addiction to electronic devices? Jim: The battle over too much talking and texting is one that most parents will face with their teens. Most of the time, it’s just a matter of setting healthy boundaries. However, if you feel your daughter is truly demonstrating addictive tendencies, we’d encourage you to contact a professional counselor. The staff at Focus on the Family can refer you to one in your area. That said, there is a trend toward what author and speaker Judith Wright calls “soft addictions.” These are different from the things we typically define as addictive, such as pornography, drinking or gambling.

tions are those behaviors you’re not ashamed to tell your friends about, such as shopping online, watching TV, and yes, using electronic devices. Left unchecked, these behaviors rob us of precious time with our families and can become almost all-consuming. Smart phones are especially problematic because they’re loaded with Wi-Fi, games and hundreds of other bells and whistles that monopolize our time. I’ve been in restaurants in which the family at the table next to me — Mom, Dad and kids — is sitting in silence, fiddling with their own electronic devices! It’s hard to enjoy a “family mealtime” when everyone’s face is riveted to the blue glow of their smart phones. We all have things in our lives that could become soft addictions — if we let them. The key is to identify those weak areas and put barriers in place. Encourage your daughter with the thought that when it comes to even “harmless” pastimes, it’s important to exercise caution and self-restraint.

Obama tries to reassure public on economy, jobs Roswell Daily Record
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is reassuring the public that jobs and the economy are his top priority. At the end of a historic and emotionally charged week that began with his nationally televised announcement that Osama bin Laden had been killed in Pakistan during a raid by U.S. special forces, Obama on Saturday returned to promoting his energy agenda. U.S. forces raided a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, where bin Laden had lived for several years, killing the al-Qaida leader. The news of bin Laden’s demise dominated the week’s headlines. “So although our economy hasn’t been the focus of the news this week, not a day goes by that I’m not focused on your jobs, your hopes and your dreams,” Obama
said in his weekly radio and Internet address. He recorded the address Friday while visiting an Indianapolis transmissions plant that makes systems for hybrid vehicles. Obama has been traveling around the country to talk up his plan to reduce U.S. consumption of foreign oil — and the price Americans pay for it — by increasing domestic oil production, encouraging a shift to alternative energy sources and building vehicles that use less fuel. He says shifting to jobs like those at the Indianapolis factory will create more jobs and help the economy grow. “The clean energy jobs at this plant are the jobs of the future, jobs that pay well right here in America,” Obama said. “It’s clean energy companies like this one
that will keep our economy growing, create new jobs and make sure America remains the most prosperous nation in the world.” Republicans devoted their weekly message to bin Laden. Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown praised years of diligent work by the military and by intelligence professionals to pinpoint bin Laden’s location. The alQaida leader’s death, Brown said, sends a clear message to others like bin Laden. “The example will not be lost on other terrorists,” Brown said. “Any escape they make will be temporary. Any sanctuary they find will be uncovered. Those who harm or threaten the American people will be dealt with, on our terms, however long it takes.”
Budget cuts have spotty record
WASHINGTON (AP) — Congress and President Barack Obama are proposing ways to automatically trigger budget savings if they can’t rein in deficits the old-fashioned way, by enacting laws to cut spending or raise taxes. Similar efforts in the past have a spotty record. The last quarter-century has seen plenty of missed deficit and spending targets and inventive evasions of budget curbs. This is because the same legislators who put in place those budget constraints can pass laws to ignore them. That history has convinced analysts that automatic triggers work best when lawmakers already have approved spending cuts, taxes increases or both. They’re least effective when used as an incentive to force legislators into such agreements in the first place. “Process alone is never going to bring about fiscal responsibility,” said Robert Bixby, executive director of the Concord Coalition, a nonpartisan group that wants to erase federal deficits. “If the political actors are not willing or ready to make hard choices, they won’t.” This year’s expected record deficit of $1.5 trillion and a cumulative national debt topping $14 trillion have snowballed into a major political issue that probably will color presidential and congressional elections in 2012. As a result, Washington is awash with proposals from Obama, lawmakers and anti-deficit groups such as the Bipartisan Policy Center to automatically trigger budget savings if ceilings on spending, the national debt or other benchmarks are pierced. A quarter-century ago, lawmakers were looking for similar mechanisms. When Reagan-era deficits reached the unprecedented $200 billion-ayear range, Congress in 1985 enacted the Gramm-Rudman law, sponsored by Sens. Phil Gramm, RTexas, Warren Rudman, R-N.H., and Ernest Hollings, D-S.C. The measure set a declining sixyear path of deficit targets that would culminate in a balanced budget in 1991. Failure to hit an annual target was supposed to automatically trigger across-theboard spending cuts known as sequesters. That medicine was considered so harsh that it would force nervous lawmakers to risk angering voters by enacting needed savings. At the time, Rudman called it “a bad idea whose time has come.” For
the most part, it didn’t work. Gramm-Rudman forced a $12 billion sequester in 1986, a small but noticeable dent in that year’s $990 billion budget. But Congress dealt with two other sequesters in 1988 and 1990 by passing laws to reduce or erase them. The same lawmakers who enacted Gramm-Rudman simply voted to defang it. What was to have been a balanced budget in 1991 produced $269 billion in red ink, a record at the time. “When it became hard to do those things, people walked away,” Rudman said in a recent interview. One problem was that the law’s targets were pegged to federal deficits, which lawmakers don't fully control because government spending and revenue are strongly influenced by the economy. A strong economy brings the government more revenue and lower spending. A weak economy in which the jobless and poor need more support does the opposite. When Congress relaxed GrammRudman’s deficit targets after the 1987 stock market crash, actual deficits still missed the law’s new goals by an average of $50 billion annually from 1988 to 1990. The controls were abandoned when President George H.W. Bush’s administration projected the law would force unbearably high budget cuts of up to $100 billion that fall. The new red ink drove Bush and congressional Democrats to the bargaining table, ultimately producing a deficit-cutting agreement and Bush's abandonment of his “read my lips — no new taxes” pledge, costing him re-election two years later. “It certainly didn't work as well as we might have hoped,” Gramm, now a vice chairman of UBS investment bank, said recently of Gramm-Rudman. “But it certainly worked better than nothing.” The 1990 budget deal also produced new budget-cutting controls. Instead of annual deficit targets, yearly caps were clamped on congressionally controlled spending on everything from agriculture research to water projects. Guaranteed federal benefits such as Social Security and Medicare could not rise — and taxes could not fall — unless those costs were covered by other spending cuts or tax increases. If those requirements were breached, sequesters were to be automatically imposed. Experts agree that those procedures — renewed twice but aban-

doned after 2002 — helped control budget deficits by forcing lawmakers to pay for pet initiatives. But credit for the steadily shrinking deficits beginning in 1993 also goes to declining military expenditures allowed by the Soviet Union's breakup, gridlock between Democratic President Bill Clinton and the GOP-controlled Congress, and a rapidly growing economy. “It was a very favorable economic and political climate,” said Robert Reischauer, former chief of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office who now heads the nonpartisan Urban Institute. As the economy heated up and federal surpluses appeared in 1998, lawmakers had little taste for budget constraints and increasingly voted to flout them. Lawmakers ended up ignoring mandated spending caps by a total $400 billion from 1999 through 2002, according to a 2003 study by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Of fice. Separately, they voted to erase $700 billion in cuts from benefit programs the law would have triggered from 2001 through 2006 to offset spending increases and tax cuts they'd approved. They also employed creative ways of side-stepping complaints. Though the Constitution requires a census every decade, they declared the 2000 count an emergency, thereby exempting its costs from budget controls. By the time lawmakers let the controls expire, there was never a sequester on benefit programs and no sequesters of congressionally controlled spending after 1991. President George W. Bush’s $1.3 trillion tax cut of 2001 was not paid for; lawmakers voted to waive that requirement. With no serious budget controls in place for most of the past decade, also unpaid for were Bush’s 2003 tax cut, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, a new Medicare prescription drug benefit, Obama’s economic stimulus package and his renewal last autumn of Bush’s tax breaks. “For a great democracy with a gigantic budget, we certainly haven’t been too innovative about making budgets enforceable,” said Pete Domenici, the former New Mexico GOP senator who chaired the Senate Budget Committee.
Billionaires meet in Arizona to discuss giving
What do dozens of American billionaires talk about when they get together? Their topic this week was of course money; not how to make it, but how to give it away. Billionaire investor Warren Buffett said Friday that a private gathering was a great chance for the billionaires who have pledged to give away at least half their wealth to meet each other, compare notes, eat and laugh. The media was banned from Thursday’s first meeting of the group that has accepted the giving challenge by Buf fett and his friend Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. Since last June, 69 individuals or couples AP Photo have made the giving Billionaire investor Warren pledge. Buffett knew only about Buffett 12 of the 61 people at the dinner at the Miraval Resort in Tucson before the famously gregarious Berkshire Hathaway CEO worked the room and made 40 new friends. “They all more than fulfilled my expectations,” Buffett told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. Melinda Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, said she was delighted by the openness of the virtual strangers. At one point, conversation at her table drifted toward the biggest mistakes people had ever made as philanthropists. “One of the things about being a philanthropist, in many ways it’s rather a lonely job,” said Tashia Morgridge, a retired special education teacher. She works with her husband, Cisco Systems chairman John Morgridge, to give money to improve U.S. education through the Denver-based Morgridge Family Foundation. George Kaiser, a Tulsa, Okla., philanthropist who aids early childhood education and social services programs, said the giving pledge helps philanthropists who don’t want to just throw money at causes and instead want to explore the best ways to invest money to tackle the world’s biggest problems. “Being able to share with other people who are agonizing about the same decisions is extraordinarily useful,” said Kaiser, the chairman of BOK Financial Corp who has been an oil and gas industry executive for four decades. He led a session on applying analytical business practices to philanthropy. The goals of the organization do not include working together to pool philanthropic dollars. Still, the meeting in Tucson that ended Friday included sessions where different philanthropists shared their passion to improve education, the environment and other causes. Philosophies of giving and ideas for collaboration among the billionaires were also shared throughout the event, said Jean Case, CEO of the family foundation started by her and her husband, America Online founder Steve Case. “There’s a strong desire in this group to learn from each other,” said Jean Case, the host of the event.
Motorola spinoff receives tax breaks to stay in Ill. headquarters
Consumer -electronics maker Motorola Mobility said Friday that it will keep its headquarters in the Chicago suburb of Libertyville after the state promised the company $100 million in tax breaks over the next decade, easily one of the largest incentive packages the state has ever given a company. The state also announced a change to the tax-break program that will allow companies that don’t have income taxes to apply tax breaks to instead use them to cut down on the amount of employee tax withholdings they have to turn over to the state. Gov. Pat Quinn called that change a key provision in the Motorola Mobility deal. Motorola Mobility made
the announcement at its headquarters with Quinn. Under the deal the company will keep a workforce of about 3,000 people at its headquarters. The company, spun off from Motorola Inc. earlier this year, had said it might move to California or Texas. Motorola Mobility CEO Sanjay Jha said the tax breaks provided through the state’s Economic Development for a Growing Economy program, known as EDGE, were a key factor in the company’s decision but not the only the factor. “At the end I think this incentive package was an important factor, but so was the partnership we’ve built with the governor’s of fice and our history here,” he said. Motorola
Mobility is one of two new companies created by the January split of Motorola Inc., which was based in Schaumburg, Ill. since 1976. Motorola was founded as Galvin Manufacturing in Chicago in 1928. The deal will let the state hang onto one of its relatively few major technology companies, which Quinn said was important to keep graduates of elite universities like Northwestern and the University of Illinois in the state. “We have lots of brainpower in Illinois; we want to summon that brainpower,” Quinn said. “We don’t want folks to leave.” The gover nor didn’t answer questions from reporters about whether the incentives package
amounted to an invitation for other companies to look for tax breaks or threaten to leave if they don’t get them. Libertyville Mayor Terry Wempler said the news ended an anxious few months. “The initial rumor that went around was that California has more engineers and better engineers,” he said. We had some discussions with Motorola and they were playing it kind of close to the vest.“ Wempler said Motorola Mobility is among the five largest employers in Libertyville, though he wasn’t sure how much the company generates in property tax revenue. State statistics for m March show the area had a
10.5 percent unemployment rate in March, the most recent month available. That’s significantly higher than the state or national rates, which were both 8.8 percent in March. Motorola Inc. split into two companies earlier this year, the consumer-oriented Motorola Mobility, which makes cell phones and cable TV set-top boxes and has about 19,000 employees, and Motorola Solutions. The latter includes professional products such as police radios and bar code scanners and is based in another Chicago suburb, Schaumburg. It had become the more successful of Motorola’s businesses before the split. Motorola of ficials had said the consumer-oriented
business might be moved to the San Francisco area, San Diego or Austin, Texas. Illinois probably had little choice but to of fer the incentives, whether Motorola Mobility would have really left or not, said Ron Baiman, an economist at the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability, a Chicago-based fiscal watchdog group. The unemployment rate and the state government’s multibillion-dollar budget deficit mean Illinois has to hang onto every job it can. “You never know if they’re bluffing or serious, and right now the state’s strapped for employment and will do just about anything they can to retain jobs,” he said.

Costa Rica finds US student missing at sea Roswell Daily Record
SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) — Kai Lamar wanted nothing more than to serve God and help others, so his family had no reservations about him traveling from the U.S. to Costa Rica to take part in a religious mission there, his mother said. “It was an opportunity to show his love for the Lord and to do what he thought he was called to do,” Shari Lamar said in a telephone interview Friday. “So we supported him wholeheartedly.” But the lives of her son and two of his high school classmates were cut short when they were swept out to sea while taking a beach break during their stay. On Friday, a Costa Rican coast guard patrol recovered Kai Lamar’s body in waters off Bejuco beach on the Pacific coast, said Jesus Escalona, Red Cross assistant director of operations. The bodies of the other two students, Caity Jones and James Smith, were found earlier this week. A strong undertow pulled the three away from shore Wednesday afternoon, according to a statement from their school, Patriot Preparatory Academy in Columbus, Ohio. They were among eight juniors and seniors on a trip not sponsored by the school. Escalona said the body was found in roughly the same area where Smith’s body was recovered a day earlier. He said the body fit Lamar’s description and rescuers called off the search. The bodies were taken to a morgue where relatives or U.S.
Embassy of ficials can claim them. The U.S. Embassy has declined to comment, citing privacy restrictions. Wednesday, the day before they were to return to Ohio, was a free day, and students were given a choice of whether they wanted to ride horses near a waterfall or go to the beach, the brother of one of the students told an Ohio television station. “Unfortunately, it was just a fatal mistake,” Smith’s brother Nick Smith told WCMH-TV in Columbus. He said the trip was the first mission for his brother and that he had worked to raise every penny needed to pay for the trip. “That kid was more driven to do things for God than I’ve seen anybody at his age ever. ... He was doing things and so committed that honestly, in 16 years, he finished everything he needed to do in this life,” Smith told the station. A message seeking comment was left by The Associated Press on Friday at a phone listing for Smith’s parents. Shari Lamar said that while her family was saddened by her son’s death, they found some comfort in knowing he had fulfilled a wish inspired by his strong Christian faith. “He and his friends had the time of their life doing the work,” she said. “It just brought them great joy. They were phenomenal kids. ... It’s sad, but we just trust God.” Lamar said she had no regrets about allowing her son to make

the trip. “We wouldn’t have done anything differently, because it was something that he wanted to do,” she said. The three students swept away, all juniors, were described as active in school and the community, well-liked and good students. The mission was organized by Ohio-based Impulse International Mission Trips, where a spokeswoman said no one could comment Friday. The students visited an orphanage, a drug rehabilitation center and some villagers, according to a post by Lamar on a blog the group was keeping on the trip. The group also played soccer, colored and read with youngsters at a community center and did some painting at a Salvation Army church. The K-12 school, on the city’s east side, is a for mer private Christian school that converted this year to a charter school, meaning it is publicly funded but privately run. It has about 500 students. Students had made the same volunteer trip to Costa Rica in the past when the school was private, said Paul Blythe, a friend of the Jones family and a school board member whose children graduated from the school.

At least two were rescued, but the teacher and one of the students died trying to save the others. “These beaches are some of the most dangerous beaches in the world,” said David Angueira, a Boston attorney who brought a wrongful death lawsuit against a tour operator over the 2006 deaths. “These beaches are unbelievably dangerous, rip currents like you wouldn’t believe. And our kids just keep drowning.” At least 52 people have drowned at sea in Costa Rica this year, said Freddy Roman, another Red Cross spokesman. While that appears to mark an increase from the 2010 full-year total of 76, Roman said he did not think it was a trend, noting last year’s
number was far below the usual. There were 103 drownings registered in 2009 and 128 in 2008. Emergency officials have attributed the drop last year to an overall decrease in vacationers caused by an economic downturn. Jim Batres, assistant director for rescues and operations for the Red Cross of Costa Rica, said the Red Cross is the only agency that offers lifeguard service at Costa Rican beaches, but doesn’t have a big enough budget to cover all the beaches full time. Batres said there are only about 60 volunteer lifeguards for all the country’s beaches. Some hotels hire their own lifeguards, and there are signs on many beaches warning about hazards.
Bahrain’s rulers cast net for loyalty oaths online
Bahrainis sign a book pledging loyalty to the ruling Al Khalifa family in the country’s main upscale shopping mall in Manama, Bahrain, April 27.
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — While Bahrain’s justice minister was making the latest accusations against alleged enemies of the state — this time medical staff — other officials were busy organizing a patriotic blitz that encourages pledges of loyalty on Facebook and Twitter. These are the parallel worlds of one of Washington’s linchpin military allies in the Gulf. On one side is a grinding campaign to break the spirits of Shiite-led opponents whose pro-reform uprising was smothered by martial law. On the other: An expanding PR offensive to portray the Sunni monarchy as fir mly in charge, and Bahrain as a firewall against Iranian influence in the nation that hosts the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet. Bahrain’s current spin — shifting from state media to the web — could appear as just more boosterism in a region where rulers are constantly bathed in state-sponsored praise. But there is a distinct undercurrent in the island kingdom: pumping up its own rhetoric to match Iran’s increasing barrage of criticism. It serves as further recognition that Bahrain’s crisis doubles as a window
into the region’s collective phobias — the mutual mistrust of Sunni Arab leaders and Shiite powerhouse Iran — as America effectively watches from the sidelines. “So many of the Gulf’s big issues are squeezed into this one tiny country,” said Shadi Hamid, director of research at The Brookings Doha Center in Qatar. Iran has relentlessly assailed Bahrain’s rulers for crackdowns against the country’s Shiite majority, which comprises 70 percent of the population but is denied key roles in gover nment or security af fairs. Tehran’s statements took on an even harder edge after Bahrain’s monarchy declared military rule and was aided in March by a Gulf force dominated by Iran’s regional rival, Saudi Arabia. The Gulf Arab sheiks and monarchs view Bahrain as a domino that cannot fall. Any gains by Bahrain’s Shiites, in their minds, equates to a potential opening for greater Iranian footholds on Saudi Arabia’s doorstep. And Gulf leaders have set aside their traditional opaque and meandering political discourses to make their point, warning Iran to stop “meddling.” Last week in Abu Dhabi, Gulf interior ministers called Iran “provocative
and irresponsible” after a senior military commander said the Gulf has always belonged to Iran. On Thursday, Bahrain’s chamber of commerce urged traders to shed Iranian investments and start a buy-Bahrain drive. “This patriotic duty is dictated by our conscience, allegiance to the leadership and loyalty to Bahrain,’ the group said. Such sound bites are becoming part of the new Gulf phrase book as rulers try to portray confidence during increasingly uncertain times. Bahrain’s propaganda machine is revving the fastest by necessity. The uprising that began in February has left at least 30 people dead and carved up the tiny country along Sunni and Shiite lines — with divisions seeming to deepen as authorities shift into an us-or-them mode. Just moments after a closed-door security court issued four death sentences on April 28 for the slayings of two policemen, state authorities sent journalists the web links to two government-produced videos on the case that were posted on YouTube. The attackers were described as “traitors” and “beasts without any mercy,” with no mention of the harsh measures used by security forces, including firing on crowds and widespread arrests.
Ecuador’s Rafael Correa declares referendum victory
QUITO, Ecuador (AP) — President Rafael Correa declared victory after an exit poll indicated voters roundly approved all 10 ballot questions in a referendum Saturday, an outcome critics say will tighten his grip on power, inhibit press freedom and lessen the judiciary’s independence. The exit poll by SP Investigacion y Estudios, which regularly does work for the government, said voters approved all the questions by greater than 60 percent. First official results were expected Saturday night. The chief of an Organization of American States observer team, Enrique Correa of Chile, said the voting appeared to go smoothly and there was no evidence of organized fraud. The plebiscite was an important gauge of Correa’s popularity. Correa noted in a TV interview that it was the eighth straight electoral victory “of this dream that is called citizen’s revolu-
tion.” The first for the leftist U.S.-educated economist was his 2006 election, and he was easily re-elected in 2009 after a rewrite of the constitution, following a playbook written by his ally, President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. “The Ecuadorean people have triumphed. Democracy has triumphed” with the referendum, said Correa, who is eligible for re-election in two years. Some questions were straightforward, such as whether to ban bullfighting and gambling. Others were complex. Two of the most controversial measures would bar owners of news media from having other commercial interests and create a government media oversight panel. Correa called approve of the media ownership question “a historic deed.” “We are going to diffuse the power in this country,” he said. Critics say the two changes would make
it easier for Correa, who is often at loggerheads with the largely opposition news media and business community, to subtly impose censorship. Another important ballot question called for dissolving Ecuador’s judicial oversight council and replacing it with a temporary body given the task of reworking the system. Another would allow authorities to detain people for longer without filing charges. Results of the exit poll were broadcast immediately after polls closed, and Vice President Lenin Moreno told reporters that the gover nment took the victory with “humility” but added that lawmakers now have a mandate from the public to convert the vote’s results into law. Five of the questions mandate constitutional changes. The other five require congressional action. Former President Lucio Gutierrez, a fierce Correa opponent, told The Associat-
ed Press that with the referendum Correa “seeks to take by force justice and dominate the news media.” Firmly in South America’s leftist bloc, Correa enjoys a 65 percent approval rating in a corruption-bedeviled country that in the decade prior to his election saw three presidents, most recently Gutierrez, ousted in popular revolts. Forceful and uncompromising, Correa has alienated many former allies, including leaders of Ecuador’s indigenous movement. They are angry with his insistence that the state have the last word on subsoil and water rights. But Correa’s populist programs, such as $35 monthly payments to nearly 2 million poor families, construction of low-income housing and a commitment to universal free education, have boosted his popularity in this small Andean nation of 14.3 million people.

Personality drives high-school prom gown styles
NEW YORK (AP) — Prom-dress trends come and go — bright colors and bohemian looks this season — but the fashion personalities of the high-school girls celebrating the end of the school year in probably the fanciest dress they’ve ever worn are consistent: Every ballroom has its princess, glamour puss, trendsetter and rebel. “You need to cover a lot of girls, and a lot of girls who want to show their personality, but you always, always need certain styles,” says Michael Shettel, the designer of bridal and eveningwear label Alfred Angelo. Girls think about their dress — a lot — and they started this process months ago. That means that while red-carpet style and runway looks might influence some girls, you can count on some wanting a retro ’50s ball gown while others want to be all grown up in something slinky
with a slit. Shettel collaborated with Walt Disney Pictures for the movie “Prom,” and covered the bases. One of the main characters wears a champagne-colored strapless with a short hemline, another a bright purple corset style, and another in a hippie-esque halter. High schoolers are a whole “new crop” of girls learning to embrace fashion and use it as a tool of self-expression, says Jane Keltner de Valle, fashion news director of Teen Vogue. The prom outfit is more just a dress, it’s a statement of who they want to be remembered as with their old friends, and it’s a glimpse at who they will be in the future, she says. The film accurately mirrors the scenes playing out across the country, Shettel says. Girls go into stores and try on sometimes dozens of dresses, but they know when they hit the right one.
Huntsman inches toward White House bid
“They might go through a frenzy of dresses, like they’ll try on every green dress. But,” says Shettel, “they’re such quick changers, they’re in and out of the dressing room to show their friends or their parents standing around in the background like lightening.” Recognizing that girls shop more by type than by specific silhouette, Lord & Taylor is merchandising its prom dresses by personality, says Amy Avitabile, senior vice president of marketing. There’s an online quiz girls can take to guide them. She breaks it down: —The trendsetter this year might consider something with cutouts, a one-shoulder neckline or an asymmetrical hemline; neon is a possibility. —The glamour girl loves embellishment and beading. Look for her in something fit for a princess or a goddess.
Roswell Daily Record
—The daring diva will take a plunge with a more revealing neckline and go for a bright color. —The romantic might be taking style cues from a Taylor Swift type. She likes flowy fabrics, laces, bows and ruffles. A kooky lace veil, chunky shoe or other bells and whistles are becoming more common as a way to put a personal twist on the outfit, adds Keltner de Valle, but underneath all that, the dresses are typically classic. That doesn’t necessarily mean timeless, though. Shettel recalls his own prom date, decades ago, wearing an offthe-shoulder dress in a blue-andpink floral print, with a ruffle at the neckline and hemline. How did she look? “We had a really good time,” he answers with a laugh.

Obama’s former ambassador to China courts donors in New York, woos lawmakers on Capitol Hill
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — It’s been a busy first week back in the United States for Republican Jon Huntsman. President Barack Obama’s former ambassador to China no sooner stepped off the plane from Beijing than he was meeting with advisers in Washington, courting donors in New York and wooing lawmakers on Capitol Hill. He also swiftly set up a federal political committee and hired staff, all clear signs he’s moving rapidly toward a White House run. Huntsman was to make his first public appearance Saturday with a commencement address at the University of South Carolina in a state that holds the first-inthe-South primary in the race for the Republican nomination. “Things are moving pretty quickly,” Huntsman told reporters Friday after meeting privately with South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. He signaled that he’d decide sooner rather than later AP Photo whether to run, adding, Huntsman Jon “Whatever timeline one is looking at can’t be more than a couple months.” The former Utah governor said he and his family are “seriously considering our options and taking a good serious look at maintaining some level of activity in public service.” Huntsman’s advisers say he hasn’t made a decision if he will join the field for 2012. At age 51, he could afford to wait until 2016 if he perceives Obama as likely to be unbeatable. Still, Huntsman’s upcoming schedule reads like one of a full-fledged candidate: He’s slated to deliver a commencement address on May 21 at Southern New Hampshire University — another early nominating state that is expected to figure prominently in a Huntsman strategy. And he plans to join other GOP hopefuls at the Republican Leadership Conference meeting in New Orleans in June, a regular stop for those looking at White House runs. Saturday’s speech was serving Huntsman as a reintroduction of sorts after two years overseas and the unofficial start of what advisers anticipate will be a full-fledged campaign even though they say he’s not likely to formally enter the race for another month. He was not expected to stake out political positions in the speech but rather planned to offer graduates advice and inspiration. Huntsman, a conservative who has taken moderate positions on environmental issues and came out in support of same-sex civil unions, is among several Republicans still weighing bids as the GOP field takes shape at a much slower pace than in past campaigns. Huntsman’s advisers say parts of his record could appeal to conservatives, moderates and independents alike. More than a dozen people have expressed interest in running, though former Govs. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts and Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota and former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania are the only three serious contenders to have taken the first official steps by forming exploratory committees. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was preparing to join the contest in the coming days. Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels is likely to announce a decision about running over the next few weeks after months of being prodded to run by fiscal conservatives hungering for more options in the field. And there are a slew of others leaving the door open: former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 vice presidential nominee; former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who won the Iowa caucuses that year; and reality TV star Donald Trump. A Huntsman campaign began to take shape well before he left China. Led by strategist John Weaver, a group of presidential veterans put together a political team so that Huntsman could be ready to run if he returned home and was receptive to a presidential bid. Pollster Whit Ayres is the latest to join the team and if Huntsman runs would help him shape ads and messages against opponents. For now, Huntsman’s advisers are assembling in Washington, where Huntsman recently bought a $3 million mansion that housed contestants on Bravo’s “Top Chef.” No decision has been made on a location for a campaign headquarters.

2 Montana legislators sue ‘Three Cups’ author HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Two Montana lawmakers are trying to start a class-action lawsuit against “Three Cups of Tea” author Greg Mortenson, claiming they were duped into buying Mortenson’s best-selling book and donating to his charity based on lies they thought were true. The claim filed Thursday in federal court in Missoula is the latest fallout from reports by “60 Minutes” and author Jon Krakauer last month that alleged that Mortenson lied in “Three Cups of Tea” about how he became involved in building schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The reports also questioned whether Mortenson financially benefited from his charity, Central Asia Institute, and whether CAI built the number of schools it claimed. The complaint, which tells only one side of a legal argument, alleges Mortenson and CAI induced state Rep. Michele Reinhart of Missoula to buy the book and Rep. Jean Price of Great Falls to donate to the charity. Reinhart and Price
The Democratic legislators are seeking class-action status, saying the lawsuit potentially could be joined by millions of people who bought Mortenson’s books, heard his speeches or donated to his charity.
claim Mortenson and the charity engaged in fraud, deceit, breach of contract and racketeering under a statute normally used for prosecuting mobsters. The Democratic legislators are seeking class-action status, saying the lawsuit potentially could be joined by millions of people who bought Mortenson’s books, heard his speeches or donated to his charity. “They purchased the book because of his heart-wrenching story which he said was true,” said Great Falls attor ney Alexander Blewett, who is representing Reinhart and Price. “If people had known all of this was fabricated, they would not have given the money.” Mortenson was in his Bozeman home awaiting word on whether he could safely undergo surgery to repair a hole in his heart, according to a statement by his doctor posted on
the Central Asia Institute’s website. Anne Beyersdorfer, a Mortenson family friend who is running the charity in Mortenson’s absence, told The Associated Press that officials at CAI have not seen the complaint and she could not comment on the particulars. But, she said, Mortenson has done nothing wrong and he is looking forward to refuting the accusations against him when his health improves. “He’s weak, his oxygen levels are low and he’s not well,” Beyersdorfer said. “He is not able to speak because of his health issues, but he (will be) ready to tell his version of the story, which is very important.” Mortenson has previously denied any wrongdoing, though he has admitted some of the events in his book were compressed over different periods of time.

transparency and posted years of financial statements on its website. Reinhart heard Mortenson speak at the University of Montana in 2007 and bought “Three Cups of T ea” in 2009. Price heard a presentation by Mortenson or CAI in Great Falls in 2009 and made a donation “relying on the truthfulness of his statements,” according to the complaint. Neither immediately returned calls for comment. Their attorney, Blewett, is the father of another Democratic state lawmaker, Sen. Anders Blewett. The plaintif fs are asking a judge to rule that Mortenson and CAI violated the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, also known as RICO. They made the RICO claim because Price gave CAI a second donation after receiving a solicitation in the mail, which Alexander Blewett said constitutes mail fraud. The racketeering claim allows the plaintiffs to seek triple the amount Mortenson and CAI have made from book sales,

speeches and donations. The complaint asks the judge to place the money into a trust administered by a courtappointed charity that would direct it to schoolchildren in Afghanistan and Pakistan. “Three Cups of T ea” was released in 2006 and sold more than 3 million copies. That notoriety helped Mortenson grow the Central Asia Institute by generating more than $50 million in donations. The fallout from the “60 Minutes” and Krakauer reports prompted Montana Attor ney General Steve Bullock to open an inquiry into the charity last month. Blewett said a class-action lawsuit represents the best way for the public to find out the truth because it could result in Mortenson’s sworn testimony. “We welcome the opportunity to let Mr. Mortenson testify under oath to all these things. To us, it seems overwhelmingly false and we will give him ample opportunity to explain away all of the falsehoods,” Blewett said.
