White House: On track for website goal
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration said it will meet its self-imposed deadline of fixing the troubled health care website so that 50,000 people can log in at the same time starting late Saturday. Yet questions remain about the stability of the site, the volume of traffic it can handle and the quality of the data it is delivering to insurers. Round-the-clock repair work since HealthCare.gov went live on Oct. 1 has produced fewer errors, and pages are loading faster. But the site still won’t be able to do everything the administration wanted, and companion sites for small businesses and Spanish speakers have been delayed. Still, the White House hopes a website that is at least operating more smoothly after weeks of bad publicity about its troubles will mark a fresh start for Obama and the signature domestic initiative of his presidency, as well as give him a chance to salvage a second term
that has been weighed down by health care law’s rough start and other issues. Administration officials said HealthCare.gov was “performing well” Saturday, the deadline set to have it working smoothly for the “vast majority of users,” after overnight hardware upgrades to boost server capacity. The deadline fell during a long holiday weekend when traffic to the site likely would have been slower anyway and at a level unlikely to expose new technical issues. More hardware upgrades and software fixes were planned for overnight Saturday to further improve speed and reduce errors. “With upgrades last night and those planned for tonight, the team is continuing its ongoing work to make HealthCare.gov work smoothly for the vast majority of users,” Julie Bataille, communications director for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said Saturday in a blog post. CMS
oversees the health care website and is a division of the Department of Health and Human Services. Additional data on the website’s progress was to be released Sunday by Jeff Zients, the website’s chief troubleshooter. Obama promised a few weeks ago that HealthCare.gov “will work much better on Nov. 30, Dec. 1 than it worked certainly on Oct. 1.” But, in trying to lower expectations, he said he could not guarantee that “100 percent of the people 100 percent of the time going on this See HEALTH, Page A2

Hanukkah: a small light can banish a lot of darkness AMY VOGELSANG RECORD STAFF WRITER The following is the first part of a three-part series: The History of Holiday Traditions.
In her window stands a menorah, a candelabrum of sorts also called a hanukkiyah. Eight candles burn brightly through the curtains, winking at the dark world outside. As the days have gotten shorter and winter breathes her chilly breath on the world, one of the
most well known Jewish holidays has begun. Hanukkah. It’s a term and holiday most have at least heard of, but how many really know the history or traditions of the Jewish Festival of Lights? Hanukkah is not actually mentioned in the Bible, but it comes from the writings of rabbis passed down through histories. And even from one family to another, the traditions do not vary as much as is
sometimes seen with other holidays, explained a member of the Jewish community who wished to remain unnamed. Jane Doe explained that on each of eight nights, a candle is lit. There is a shammash — a “servant” candle — that stands above the rest and is used to light each day’s candle. Although Doe claimed not to be an expert on the holiday, she did have some stellar resources for uncovering the history behind
So where did the holiday originate? Although it is not directly written in the Old Testament, part of the miracle celebrated on Hanukkah comes from the book of Maccabees.

U.S. Marine combat veteran Kurt Mason walked into the Roswell International Air Center Saturday night expecting to start an elk hunting trip. But before he did anything, he stopped to hug each man and woman who stood guard before him holding an American flag. “I think I’m kind of at loss for wor ds,” Mason said. “Words can’t describe what people give back to us nowadays. Ever since I’ve been hurt, people have opened up their houses, businesses. It’s heartwarming.” Mason, from Wyoming, and Kenneth Kaighn, who also served in the Marine Corps and the U.S. Army, were met at the airport by the Southeast New Mexico Patriot Guard Riders. The two were severely injured in combat and are on 100percent disability. Both served in Afghanistan, and Kaighn spent time in Iraq and Somalia. The trip is sponsored by Base Camp 40 — Warrior Hunt New Mexico, and Warrior Bands USA, a Texas-based company that creates wrist bands out of paracord for active military and veterans.

the mountains to start a rebellion. Although they were outnumbered and outgunned (so to speak), Mattathias’ son, Judah the Maccabee, defeated Antiochus. This is the first miracle, and according to Doe, the one that should be focused on the most. However, there is a second aspect to the miracle. This one came about in later writings, but is more prevalent in the minds of people today. It’s the miracle of the oil. After the Maccabees retook the temple, they rededicated it with oil. However, the one cruse of oil was only enough to burn for one day. It burned for eight. “Oil was the bringing of the light,” explained Doe. “Which is what Judaism is supposed to be about — bringing the light of the knowledge of the one true God.” According to American Rabbi Michael Strassfeld’s writings in “The Jewish Holidays,” however, Hanukkah does not last eight days because of the oil. It actually lasts eight days because it is based off the holiday of Sukkot, a holiday the Maccabees could not celebrate while in the mountains. Lighting the candles is one of the more visual traditions, but, as is true with most holidays in any religion, there are many different traditions attached to Hanukkah. One popular pastime is the playing of games, particularly Dreidel. A gambling game, Dreidel uses a four-

website will have a perfectly seamless, smooth experience.” The nation’s largest health insurer trade group said significant problems remain. Karen Ignagni, president and CEO of America’s Health Insurance Plans, said insurers have complained that enrollment data sent to them from the website include too much incorrect, duplicative, garbled or missing information. She said the problems must be cleared up to guarantee consumers the coverage they signed up for effective Jan. 1. “Until the enrollment process is working from end to end, many consumers will not be able to enroll in coverage,” Ignani said. The first big test of the repaired website probably won’t come for another couple of
sided spinning top labeled with letters representing the phrase Nes gadol hayah sham: a great miracle happened there. The letters — nun, gimel, he and shin — mean do nothing, take the main pile, take half the main pile and give half of your pile. Children originally used it as a cover. At a time when they would gather illegally to study Torah, children would pretend to be playing a game when authorities passed. Rabbis originally didn’t like the idea of them playing a gambling game, but because of the message let it remain a tradition. Another tradition is storytelling. A popular story comes from the Book of Judith within the Apocrypha (a collection of Jewish writings between 200 B.C. and 200 C.E.) Desired by a Syrian general, Judith made the man a feast including many cheeses, which led to the general drinking a lot of wine. When he passed out, Judith beheaded him and the head was used as a banner when the Jews led an attack. The Syrians fled. Besides being a tradition in itself, this story also brought about two other observances. For one, it instilled the importance of women in celebrating Hanukkah; so many maintain that women should not work while the candles are lit. The other aspect was the focus on cheese, starting a custom of eating cheese on Hanukkah, especially in the form of latkes. Latkes (a pancake-like food) have since been made from potatoes — or other vegetables to mix things up, Doe said. But the primary concept behind latkes does not depend on what they are made from. It is all about frying them because that uses oil: weeks, when an enrollment surge is expected as consumers rush to meet a Dec. 23 deadline so their coverage can kick in on the first of the year. Avoiding a break in coverage is particularly important for millions of people whose current individual policies were canceled because they don’t meet the standards of the health care law, as well as for a group of about 100,000 in an expiring federal program for high-risk patients. The law requires most people who don’t have health insurance to buy coverage or pay fines. If HealthCare.gov seizes up again at crunch time, the White House may have to yield to congressional demands for extensions or delays in key requirements of the law, such as the individual requirement to get covered. Delaying the individual mandate, in turn, could lead to higher future premiums, since healthy people would no longer have an incentive to sign up.

non-profit that raises funds to cover medical treatments of search dogs. Mica, a 2-year-old border collie, is being trained by Whetsel to become a search-and-rescue dog. Specifically, Mica is learning to locate human remains. Whetsel said human-remains dogs are less common than “live-find” dogs who look for living subjects such as lost hikers. She describes Mica’s tasks as “not-so-glorious” in comparison to searching for a 3year-old lost in the woods, but said that Mica’s job is no less important. “What people don’t realize is you’re bringing home closure,” said Whetsel. “Bringing closure is something I’ve realized is really very important.” Whetsel adopted Mica from England as a 10-weekold pup. Basic obedience training (think “sit,” “lie down,” “good girl!”) started immediately. When Mica was 6 months old, she began to learn the art of human-scent detection. The earliest phase of detection training consists of placing an item on the floor and rewarding the dog when it sniffs the object. When the dog grows accustomed to finding the object in plain site, the trainer starts hiding the object. Trainers seek diverse locations for the search “game,” including houses, rubble, deserts forests and so on. “It doesn’t matter where. You want them acclimated to all sorts of environments,” said Whetsel. She said places where it is easy to hide an object and hard to find it are ideal. For human-remains dogs, items such as human teeth, which have the scent of dead human cells, are eventually incorporated into training. Training takes between 10 months and two years. Whetsel said Mica is ready to begin her career — all the canine needs is certification through the National Narcotic Detector Dog Association. “She said, ‘I got this,’” Whetsel verbalizes on behalf of Mica. According to sagefoundationfordogs.org, Whetsel has advanced certification as a K-9 unit dog handler and as a trainer of K-9 dogs and handlers. She has trained several dogs throughout her life, one of them being Sage, who died in 2012 and is the namesake of the Sage Foundation. Sage arrived in New Mexico from England at 16 weeks of age in 1999. Like Mica, Sage was a border collie. Sage was cross-trained as a disaster specialist, forensic K-9 dog and missing-persons search dog. She and Whetsel took their skills to aid in searches for human victims in the aftermaths of 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina, and, in 2007, the two were deployed to Iraq to search for missing soldiers. Whetsel may cross-train Mica as she did Sage, so that Mica can also serve as a live-find dog. When Sage developed cancer, Whetsel discovered that the agencies with which Sage had worked would not provide monetary aid to cover treatment. With the help of the Roswell community, Whetsel was able to raise $10,000 to cover Sage’s treatments. Leftover funds went toward starting the Sage Foundation. Whetsel is currently training two service dogs. In addition to Mica, she has Pi. Both Mica and Pi are related to Sage, according to Whetsel. She said Sage is the pups’ great-aunt. The longtime dog trainer said she’s been impressed with Mica’s progress through training, as she was with Sage. “She’s just sort of steadily worked her way up through the process and she’s been really easy to train. She’s just really easy going,” she said. When Mica isn’t training to fill Sage’s shoes, she likes to play Frisbee and catch. Whetsel said Mica is “one of the most loving dogs that I’ve owned.” “She’s never met another human or animal that she didn’t like.” Mica and Pi will finish their training and certification in North Carolina, where they moved last week with Whetsel, O’Dette and O’Dette’s chihuahua, Chica. The Sage Foundation, which the couple works for together, is going with them. “On behalf of my wife Cathy and I, we both want to extend our heartfelt thank you to the community of Roswell for being so supportive and making the Sage Foundation such a success,” Whetsel said.
on private land. Jon Gifford, owner of Warrior Bands USA, of Houston, said he wanted to help get Mason and Kaighn on the trip. “I said let’s set up a hunt. Let’s get this list rolling,” Gifford said. “These guys deserve a free hunt for what they’ve sacrificed for us.” Gifford waited at the airport as the two arrived. He snapped a Warrior Band on them, telling them about its symbolism as he did. “They’ve never met each other,” Gifford said. “They met in Dallas on a connecting flight here.” All expenses will be paid during the five-day trip to the Cornerstone Ranch in Alto. “It’s going to be a blast,” Mason said. “I can’t wait. I’ve never hunted big game before in my life.” Kaighn, from Colorado, said he was really excited about the trip. “It’s been a long time since I could get out and be able to do something like that again,” Kaighn said. “It means a lot to me to come out and meet Kurt and go out in the wild and experience it. Maybe we can overcome some of our disabilities.” Kaighn shook hands with the veterans of the Patriot Guard Riders when he arrived. “It’s pretty overwhelming for us,” he said.

were represented, each one holding not just one-of-a-kind merchandise. Every item for sale was hand-made by women in places like Kenya, Uganda, Nepal and India, and the purchase of the items went toward helping these women live a better life. Living in lower-caste systems or impoverished places, many women are forced into brothels at a young age and have no other options for making a living. Programs like the ones at the World Market give women the opportunity to earn an honest living that isn’t degrading. “You are giving them a voice and saying they have dignity and worth,” event coordinator Laura Roebuck announced. She was overwhelmed by the amount of volunteers who came out to support the cause. “People here are so generous with their time and resources,” she exclaimed gratefully. And the turnout was truly amazing. Starting at 4 p.m. the Market went on for 5 hours, and, after the first 2, more than 330 people had already walked through the doors. Many others were also shocked yet pleased with the turnout. “There is a lot of excitement and a lot of buying,” said shopper Sandy Sussman, who was visiting from Austin, Texas. “Like any good market ... you have to get here early or you’re going to miss out.” Her future daughter-in-law, Josephine Lue, was also impressed, not just with the number of people, but with the entire venue and atmosphere. “It really seems like a bazaar,” she said. “It’s actually a world market.” You could almost see her imagining an outdoor market along the streets in India as she took in the scene. The mass of people milling around made goods on tables quickly disappear. Volunteer Tracy Pruitt, with her daughter Delanie Pruitt, manned a table of goods from Africa, and they watched in excitement as merchandise flew from the tables.
Amidst the booths and people weaved more volunteers carrying platters of various types of foods to represent different parts of the world. Whether it was hummus on crackers, key lime pie on chocolate wafers or a chopped olive-anchovies-capers mix on bread, everything was exotic and delicious.
Of course, there was also a selection of wine to wash down the flavors. Or for those looking for something a little warmer, a vat of chai tea sat next to a bowl of sweet, assorted nuts.
With all the obstacles — food, people, drinks — it could have been a challenge to really know what merchandise was for sale. To help with this dilemma, some volunteers performed in a fashion show.
Emceed by Jodi Ashcroft, the fashion show spotlighted everything from necklaces and clutches to dresses and pajama pants. Ashcroft also highlighted what organization and which country from which each item came.
The girls in the show — some from Goddard High School, a couple in middle school and a couple of adults — each had a favorite piece that they got to show.
A yellow “Gold Bird” clutch from India was Gateway Christian eighth-grader Victoria Rodriguez’s favorite, while GHS junior Kensey Plummer preferred the watches from Africa. “I would actually wear that,” she exclaimed about the watch. And many of the clothes and accessories were things women were not only excited about, but in some cases, already wearing.
“I love that our community can be a part of their community just by being here,” Ashcroft announced. And with so much participation the first year, many are hoping for another World Market to come to Roswell in the near future.

Could this columnist be the biggest turkey of all?
“Have you heard there is a shortage of big turkeys?” he inquired, leaning in to whisper as we shared the solemn, quiet time before Mass began. Given the circumstances, it seemed a strange question but this is a good buddy and I know him to be sort of, you know, random. For purposes of this column I will call him “Greg.” He noticed my eyes skeptically surveying the congr egation. “Don’t even go there,” he cautioned, “we have only one seat reserved here for a big turkey, and you are sitting in it!” Lions 1, Christians 0. “Gr eg” settled into what appeared to be either devout prayer or nap time, but the damage was done. Consider. A country that can put a 60-inch widescreen in the living room can’t pr oduce a 16-pound turkey for the Thanksgiving table even though it’s had a whole year to prepare.
CANTWELL LOOKING ASKANCE
I could think of little else. Roberta was one of the readers this Sunday and by the time my wife got to St. Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians wher e he talks about eating free food I had already decided if there was a shortage of fat turkeys it had to be somehow tied to the Obama health care website. While Eddie was leading us in “Glory to God” I remembered reading most of our Thanksgiving turkeys are provided by a company named Butterball, which, coincidentally, is the
nickname of another buddy of mine. In the inter est of anonymity, I will simply call him “Jack.” “Jack” excels on zeroing in on the story behind the story and I knew he would have some theory on why a company that routinely pr oduces 1.3 billion pounds of turkey meat each year all of a sudden is saying, sorry, folks, we are about to kill the golden goose. Wrong bird, but you get my point. Totally preoccupied with the turkey shortage I just blanked out when the collection basket sailed on by. How did this turkey tradition get started in the first place, I wonder ed? Duck was part of the menu when the Pilgrims gathered for that first Thanksgiving in 1621 at Plymouth Colony. So why not duck as the holiday mainstay? I thought about that during the gospel r eading and was guessing the Turkey Lobby back
then must have gotten to the governor and lined his pockets in return for making gobble-gobble the official bird. Perhaps history suggests this is exactly what happened and the ensuing political tension had warring interests making accusations against one another. It is said that two tea party separatists took the floor at the Plymouth T own Meeting and threatened to shut down our fledgling country if turkey were chosen as the featured Thanksgiving fare. That is historical speculation, of course, but nonetheless Turkeygate was weighing heavily on me. I tried to pay attention to Father Al’s ser mon. It was a homily based on the Gospel according to Luke. Tough sledding. My mind kept wandering to candied yams and eight choices of homemade delights, including Aunt Bertha’s — it’s-not-Thanksgiv-
ing-without-it! — Pickle and Peanut Butter Pie with Yogurt. (“No, Aunt Bertha. Yum-yum, but take it home. Really! We have so much leftover pie here we’ll never eat it all!”) Hurrying home to research I discovered Butterball is claiming the shortage is caused by a dearth of turkeys in excess of 16 pounds. All of a sudden, it seems, turkeys ar e losing weight. Poor diet? Shoddy exercise r outine? No one knows. Calling Dr. Oz. I think I know what is going on. Private enterprise has figured out a way to sell half as many turkeys and make twice as much money. God bless America. Amen. (Ned Cantwell – ncantwell@ bajabb.com – hopes his readers, who are definitely not big turkeys, will enjoy this day with their families.)
Cholesterol risk calculator is too risky
While the health care system might be a fit topic for newspaper advice, medical care is not. This was proven yet again when it was widely reported this month that the nation’s leading heart-health organizations had unveiled a “risk calculator” expected to show that tens of millions more people should be taking cholesterol-lowering statin medications. It’s not as though millions of people aren’t already taking statins. The class of drugs is among the most commonly prescribed. A 2011 study from Harvard Medical School estimated that about 32 million Americans — some 25 percent of the population over age 40 — take them. The fear-factor calculator was put out by doctors and pharmaceutical companies, among whose goals are to keep raking in more money for Big Pharma. Even skeptical reporters are often not equipped to calculate and counter the information put out by scientists and medical experts. That sort of analysis has to come from other medical professionals. Which it did, six days after the first reports. Two Harvard physicians challenged the accuracy of the calculator, saying it would cause people to unnecessarily take a statin. Critics asserted that the online calculator was flawed and appeared to greatly overestimate the risk of heart attack or stroke that healthy people could be facing in the next 10 years. Following those warnings, media outlets quickly backtracked on the earlier stories. Reporters quoted new advice that patients in good cardiovascular health should avoid following the new cholesterol guidelines. Patients who already have had a heart attack, have diabetes or extremely high levels of “bad cholesterol” (LDL) were advised to remain on prescribed statins or to see a doctor to determine whether they should be on the medication. The faulty guidelines were issued by two reputable organizations, the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association. How does inaccurate information like this get out to the public? As Dr. Howard LeWine of Harvard Health Publications, wrote on Tuesday: “It’s been a topsy-turvy few days in the world of heart health and disease.” The calculator included in the guidelines used nine pieces of information to gauge whether a person was likely to develop atherosderotic cardiovascular disease within a decade. “Atherosderotic” includes peripheral artery disease and stroke or transient ischemic attacks, along with the conditions normally associated with heart disease. The nine pieces of information were: Sex, age, race, total cholesterol, HDL (good) cholesterol, systolic blood pressure, current treatment for high blood pressure, a diagnosis of diabetes and a smoking habit. Statins were recommended for people who ranked a 7.5 percent risk on the calculator, no matter how healthy they currently may be. The Harvard doctors argued that the recommendations from the calculator were formulated with unreliable data and that the calculations are off-base. The debate over the calculator has raised questions about heart health guidelines that advise even greater numbers of people to take statins. It also has brought into question the motive of drug manufacturers who fund medical research. Dr. LeWine warns that despite the controversy, there still are categories of patients who absolutely benefit from the statins, which can be life-saving medications. He also noted that tests are under way to determine whether genetic testing may help better direct physicians on how to treat patients at risk of cardiovascular disease. Meanwhile, it’s reassuring that physicians refuted the questionable medical advice. And, while it is undoubtedly confusing for those seeking medical advice online or from news media, it is also a cautionary tale. The best suggestion for good medical advice is to consult your doctor.

What are we thankful for on Thanksgiving? Had today’s politicians and opinion-makers been in power four centuries ago, Americans might celebrate “Starvation Day” this week, not Thanksgiving. The Pilgrims started out with communal property rules. When they first settled at Plymouth, they were told: “Share everything, share the work, and we’ll share the harvest.” The colony’s contract said their new settlement was to be a “common.” Everyone was to receive necessities out of the common stock. There was to be little individual property. That wasn’t the only thing
DEAR DOCTOR K: The worst part of a cold for me is the postnasal drip that lasts for weeks. Can I do anything to stop it? DEAR READER: I’m also a frequent sufferer from postnasal drip, so I’m pleased to say there are treatments that can help. Postnasal drip is discharge from your nose and sinuses that drips down the back of your throat. If it were coming out through your nostrils, you’d call it a “runny nose.” Following colds, the discharge typically is thin and white. If you get a sinus infection, the discharge can be thick and colored yellow, brown or green. One of the first things to try is a saline spray. Saline wash-

created what economists call the “tragedy of the commons.” If people can access the same stuff by working less, they will. Plymouth settlers faked illness instead of working the common property. The harvest was meager, and for two years, there was famine. But then, after the colony’s governor, William Bradford, wrote that they should “set corn every man for his own particular,” they dropped the commons idea. He assigned to every family a parcel of land to treat as its own. The results were dramatic. Much more corn was planted. Instead of famine, there was
plenty. Thanks to private property, they got food — and thanks to it, we have food today. This doesn’t mean Pilgrims themselves saw the broader economic implications of what they’d been through. “I don’t think they were celebrating Thanksgiving because they’d realized that capitalism works and communal property is a failure,” says economist Russ Roberts. “I think they were just happy to be alive.” I wish people understood.

and out the other. You may rinse your sinuses as needed, depending on your symptoms. Also try filling a basin with hot water and inhaling the air just above the surface. And use a humidifier at night. Nasal irrigation is a little more complicated. But it is also very effective in clearing the thick mucus: (1) Mix 1 teaspoon of pure salt (no additives) in 8 ounces of warm (not hot) water. (2) Draw the saltwater mixture into a syringe. (You can get one at your local drugstore. One type has a bulb shape. The other looks like something you’d see in a doctor’s office. Neither one has a needle.) (3) Insert the tip of the syringe in one nostril. Lean
over the sink. Push gently. The solution may drain from either nostril or from your mouth. Repeat two or three times per day. Decongestant sprays may help. They shrink swollen membranes in your nose and in the passages from your nose to your sinuses. That allows the discharge to drain out of the sinuses and nose. But limit your use of decongestants to three to four days; using them too often can cause a reaction that makes membranes get swollen again, making postnasal drip worse. Decongestant pills such as pseudoephedrine may work. But in some people, decongestants can dry out the nasal

Choosing to live from the inside out
It begins on the inside. Maybe not everything, but maybe 90 percent. There are things that we can’t control, that would be the other 10 percent, but most of the lives we live begin on the inside and then work their way out. It can be called being intentional. It can be called being proactive. It can be called being accountable for oneself. Or no excuses. Or I am responsible for me. No one else. Let’s go back to the time of Greek mythology and see if this will help you understand this inside out concept. Greek mythology includes author Homer’s epics the “Illiad” and the “Odyssey”. The epics were believed to have been written in the 7th or 8th centuries BC. Homer is revered as the greatest of ancient Greek epic poets. So what can we learn in 2013 from writings from 2800 years ago? For one, human nature hasn’t changed. In ancient Greek mythology, the Sirens were dangerous and beautiful creatures, portrayed as beautiful females or a mix of part woman and part bird who were seductive in nature. They lived on an island and lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island. There is a story about Odysseus (also known by the Roman name Ulysses) and the Sirens. He was a legendary Greek king of Ithaca and a hero of Homer’s epic poem the “Odyssey.” When Odysseus’ ship approached the island of the Sirens, he instructed his crew to plug their
ears with wax so as not to be allured by the enchantment of their songs. But Odysseus himself was curious and thus had his men tether him to the mast with ears unplugged. He wanted to hear the songs, but having been warned previously, he knew that he must not acquiesce to their calls. As the sounds of the Sirens drifted over the ship, Odysseus was intoxicated with longing. He struggled against the ropes with all of his might and cried out desperately for his men to release him, but to no avail. I think many of us have had this experience before. Curiosity gets the better of us and we put ourselves in a zone of temptation. Often we don’t have the ropes that kept Odysseus from yielding. Many of us live our lives identifying what we should stay away from and then trying to stay away from what we have identified. What falls into this category in your life? What have you identified in your life that you must stay away from? Another sailor is said to have passed by the island of the Sirens and his name was Orpheus. Orpheus was a legendary musician,

er and doing things as a commune is appealing. It’s the principle behind the Soviet Union, Medicare, the Vietnam War, Obamacare and so on. Some communal central planning is helpful, but too much is dangerous. The Pilgrims weren’t the first settlers on the East Coast of the New World to make this mistake. Just a few years before, the colony of Jamestown was almost wiped out by the same idea. Historian Edmund S. Morgan, in “American Slavery, American Freedom: The Ordeal of Colonial Virginia,” describes what happened in 1609-1610: “There are 500 people in the colony now. And they are starving. They scour the woods listlessly for nuts, roots and berries. And they offer the only authentic examples of cannibalism witnessed in Virginia. One provident man chops up his wife and salts down the pieces. Others dig up graves to eat the corpses. By spring only sixty are left alive.” After that season, the colony was abandoned for years. The lesson that a commons is often undesirable is all around us. What image comes to mind if I write “public toilet”? Consider traffic congestion and

passages, making mucus thicker — just what you want to avoid. Each person responds differently to these treatments. You will need to figure out what works best for you: saline spray, irrigation, a short course of a decongestant or a combination. The human anatomy contains many wonders. The gut miraculously breaks food down into the tiniest pieces so that
poet, and prophet. As Orpheus’ ship approached and songs began, Orpheus did not reach for wax or ropes but for his lyre. The songs of the Sirens were alluring, but his music was even sweeter. As his ship sailed by the Sirens, the men on board his ship were utterly enchanted by the chords of their captain and not prone to shipwreck as the Sirens desired. Orpheus decided that he would focus on the good he had inside him and not let the temptation from the outside deter him from his mission. With his inner focus, he didn’t need to worry about boundaries as he wasn’t fased by the distraction of the Sirens. The Sirens provided the same influence, the same intoxicating music, the same temptations. Odysseus defined the temptation and braced himself to not be captured. Orpheus looked inside himself and knew what was within him was more powerful than the seductive influence that came from without. It is the difference between living a Odysseus life looking outward and trying to stay away from boundaries or guardrails and looking inward and just doing what is right without the need for any boundaries. Orpheus lived from the inside out. In our lives we all have adversity. What happens when we face adversity truly tells us about ourselves and others. It has been said that we live in one of three conditions. We are living in a storm, we are moving
poor upkeep of many publicly owned roads. But most people don’t understand that the solution is private property. When natural resources, such as fish and trees, dwindle, the first impulse is to say, “Stop capitalism. Make those things public property.” But they already are public — that’s the problem. If no one owns the fishing rights to a given part of the ocean — or the exclusive, long-term logging rights to part of the forest — people have an incentive to get there first and take all they can before the next guy does. Resources are overused instead of conserved. We don’t maintain others’ property the way we maintain our own. Colonists in Plymouth nearly starved because they didn’t understand that. In Jamestown, some were driven to cannibalism. But no one starves when ranchers are allowed to own land and cattle. Or turkeys. Private ownership does good things. Be thankful for it this week.

out of a storm, or we are headed into a storm. The concept here is storms are a way of life, get used to them. They hit at different times and to differing degrees, but life and storms go together. An illustration involving adversity and of living from the inside out is the story of the grandmother and the tea bag. The young granddaughter was complaining about difficulties in her world and the grandmother had heard enough. She took the granddaughter by the hand and led her to the kitchen, set three pots on the stove, filled them with water, and heated them up until they boiled. She put carrots in one pot, eggs in a second, and a tea bag in the third. After allowing the items in the pots to boil for some time, the grandmother lifted the items out of the pots. She identified the adversity that the boiling water brought into the items’ world and then explained her point to her granddaughter. She said the carrots went into the pot as a hard vegetable and the adversity made them mushy. The eggs went into the pot fragile and the adversity hardened them. Then she pulled the tea bag out and shared that the tea bag came out of the pot the same way it went in. Other than getting wet, it remained the same, but changed the boiling water around it. The tea bag changed the adversity it was placed in from its inside out. In the life you live, are you focus-
ing on what your life is about and the direction you need to be moving or is your life defined as one filled with boundaries and guardrails to keep you from making bad decisions? One path has a clear direction for you to focus on and boundaries are unnecessary. The path is one defined by what you need to stay away from. One is moving toward something that you believe needs to be moved toward, the other is seeking to navigate away from things you don’t want to encounter. My challenge to you is to be moving toward what you need to be moving toward, not trying to stay away from what needs to be stayed away from. Focus on where you need to be and on what you need to be doing and you don’t need to worry about defining boundaries. Choose to live a life that begins on the inside and that is contagious to those around you. When adversity hits, don’t change who you are, change the world around you. It is a life lived from the inside out. Just a thought... Rick Kraft is a local attorney and the Executive Director of the Leadership Roswell Program.

LIBERACE EXHIBIT A TROVE OF GLITTERY MEMORABILIA LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — For years, Las Vegas tourists have had no place to pay their respects to one of the glitzy town’s founding fathers. The once wildly popular Liberace museum, 2 miles from Sin City’s main tourist corridor, closed in 2010 after years of declining patronage, and the famously flamboyant entertainer’s shimmering artifacts have since languished in storage. This week, a Strip casino is bringing some of Liberace’s most decadent possessions back into the public eye. Visitors to the six-week exhibition at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas will be able to gaze upon Liberace’s glittering piano, trademark European candelabras, and so-called Rhinestone Roadster, an old-time car decked out in faux gemstones. Also on display are the custom-made
cowboy boots, sequined jumpsuits and jewel-and-ermine capes that powered Liberace’s catchphrase, “My clothes may look funny but they’re making me the money.” The flashy pianist became the best-paid entertainer on the planet during his heyday from the 1950s to the 1970s. He was the forerunner to gender-bender entertainers like Elton John, David Bowie, and Madonna, though he never openly addressed his sexual orientation, and his fans never seemed to catch on to his private gay life. After his death in the 1980s, Liberace’s star faded faster than other Las Vegas fixtures like Frank Sinatra and Elvis. But this year has been good to his legacy. The installation is titled “Too Much of a Good Thing Is Wonderful,” and like its subject, it will keep late hours. It will be open through Jan. 2, from 3 p.m. until 10 p.m.

SASHA COULD DECIDE OBAMA’S POST-WHITE HOUSE HOME WASHINGTON (AP) — Sasha Obama could be the deciding factor in whether her father stays in Washington after he leaves office. President Barack Obama told ABC News in a taped interview that his now 12-year-old daughter “will have a big vote in where we are.” When Obama leaves office in January 2017 after two terms, eldest daughter Malia could be off in college and Sasha will be a sophomore in high school. Both girls attend the exclusive Sidwell Friends School in northwest Washington. Obama said he and his wife,
Michelle, have to make sure Sasha is doing well until she goes off to college. He suggested that no decisions have been made. But he did hint that tearing Sasha away from her friends might be asking too much, saying his wife and daughters already have made “a lot of sacrifices on behalf of my cockamamie ideas, the running for office and things.” In another portion of the interview, which aired Friday night on ABC’s “20/20,” Mrs. Obama says she tries not to tell her husband what to do because “he’s got enough people in

Mrs. Obama says she and the president treat their living quarters on the second floor of the White House like a sanctuary, particularly when their girls are home. She says the girls like to talk about their day, which often has little to do with what’s going on in the rest of the world. “Everyone has to have their safe haven, a place of peace and calm and, you know, that’s home for us,” the first lady said.

MOTHERS LOOK FOR MISSING CHILDREN
GUATEMALA CITY (AP) — Fifty Central American mothers have gathered in Guatemala to begin their trek through Mexico to look for their missing sons and daughters who disappeared there on their way to the United States. The mothers from Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala will cross into Mexico on Sunday, and travel as far north as the state of San Luis Potosi. Caravan organizer Elisabel Hernandez said Saturday that this year the mothers won’t make it all the way to Mexico’s northern border states because authorities say they can’t guarantee their safety. This is the seventh year the group has made the trek hoping to find their loved ones or at least bring attention to the plight of migrants who have disappeared in Mexico.

VP Biden trying to show US still focused on Asia
WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s up to Vice President Joe Biden to show that the U.S. effort to realign its gaze toward Asia hasn’t fizzled out. Biden is set to arrive Monday in Tokyo on a weeklong trip to Asia, which is watching carefully to see how committed the Obama administration is to increasing America’s influence in the region as a hedge against an increasingly assertive China. In meetings with leaders in Japan, China and South Korea, the vice president will seek to show that while the administration has been preoccupied with Mideast flare-ups and a series of domestic distractions, the U.S. remained determined to be a Pacific power. At the same time, disputes among Asian nations seem to be boiling over, threatening instability in a region that’s vital to the U.S. economy. American allies Japan
and South Korea are barely speaking. China is butting heads with its neighbors and with the U.S. about Beijing’s new air defense zone over a group of tiny islands that have exacerbated long-simmering territorial conflicts. The U.S. on Friday advised American carriers to comply with China’s demand that it be told of any flights passing through that defense zone. Early in his presidency, Obama declared the U.S. was “all in” when it came to the Asia-Pacific. His administration pledged to increase its influence, resources and diplomatic outreach in the region, and to bolster the U.S. military footprint so that by 2020, 60 percent of the Navy’s warships would be based there, compared with 50 percent now. The concern was that as China came into its own as a superpower, its sway over other Asian nations would grow, too. But in Obama’s second
term, Iran, Syria and Egypt have absorbed the president’s attention on foreign policy matters. At home, the administration has been consumed with a health care rollout that’s become a major political problem, while intense gridlock in Congress has bogged Obama down in domestic disputes. To cap it off, Obama had to scrap a much-anticipated trip to Asia in October because the federal government was shut down. His absence led many in the region to wonder if it remained an Obama priority. Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, said recently it does. She announced that President Barack Obama will visit Asia in April and promised that the U.S. will keep deepening its commitment to Asia “no matter how many hot spots emerge elsewhere.” But Rep. Steve Chabot, R-
Vice President Joe Biden speaks in Chicago on Nov. 25.
Ohio, said he’s heard loud concerns as he’s traveled the region as the chairman of the House subcommittee dealing with Asia.

Chabot said. “It’s been mostly just talk, and mostly diplomatic engagement. They want to get beyond just talk.”
33 dead in Mozambican plane crash in Namibia JOHANNESBURG (AP) — A Mozambique Airlines plane carrying 33 people crashed in a remote border area in Namibia, killing all on board, officials said Saturday.
The plane crashed in a Namibian national park near the bor der with Angola and there were no survivors, Namibian police and Mozambican authorities said. An investigation of the cause was underway, and teams of experts headed to the scene. The Brazilian-made Embraer 190 aircraft was carrying 27 passengers, including 10 Mozambicans, nine Angolans, five Portuguese, and one citizen each from France, Brazil and China, said the airline. Six crew members, including
two pilots, three flight attendants and a maintenance technician, were on board.
Mozambique’s transport minister, Gabriel Muthisse, confirmed the deaths of the 33 people on the plane.
Flight TM470 from Maputo, the Mozambican capital, did not land as scheduled in Luanda, the Angolan capital, on Friday afternoon, and the airline initially said the plane might have landed in Rundu, in northern Namibia. It said it coordinated with aviation authorities in Namibia, Botswana and Angola to locate the missing plane, and that it was setting up support centers for families of the victims at the airports in Maputo and Luanda.
A Namibian police helicopter joined officers on the ground in the search, the Namibia Pr ess Agency r eported. The area is vast and there are no roads, making it dif ficult to locate the plane, said police official Willy Bampton, according to the agency. The search was conducted in the Bwabwata National Park in northeastern Namibia. Several thousand people as well as elephants, buffalo and other wildlife live in the park, which covers 6,100 square kilometers (2,360 square miles).
In a statement, Embraer said the plane that crashed was delivered to Mozambique Airlines in November 2012 and said it would assist investigators trying to deter mine the
cause of the crash. “To that end, a team of Embraer technicians is preparing to go to the scene of the accident,” the company said. Mozambique Airlines said the aircraft had General Electric engines, and had flown 2905 hours since being acquired a year ago. Airlines from Mozambique are among carriers banned in the European Union because of safety concerns. Tony Tyler, director general and CEO of the International Air Transport Association, said earlier this week that none of the 25 African members of the association, which include Mozambique Airlines, had an accident in 2012.
“But the overall safety record for Africa remains a problem that we must fix,” Tyler said at a meeting of the African Airlines Association in Kenya. He said African aviation comprises about 3 percent of global airline traf fic, and last year it accounted for nearly half of the fatalities on Western-built jets. Mozambique Airlines also uses U.S.-made Boeing and Canadian-made Bombardier aircraft.
CEO Marlene Mendes Manave said in a statement on the airline’s website, posted prior to the crash, that the airline grew 8 percent in the first half of this year, compared to the same period in 2012.
FIRST LADY WELCOMES WHITE HOUSE CHRISTMAS TREE
WASHINGTON (AP) — Christmas has come to the White House. Michelle Obama, daughters Malia and Sasha and the family’s two dogs on Friday accepted an 18 1/2-foot Douglas fir as the official White House Christmas tree. The tree was grown by Christopher Botek, a second-generation Christmas tree farmer from Crystal Spring Tree Farm in Lehighton, Pa. The tree was hauled up the driveway by horse-drawn wagon and taken to the Blue Room, where it will stand as the main attraction of the White House Christmas decorations. Mrs. Obama, holding the leash for dog Sunny, and her daughters walked around the wagon to inspect the fir. “It looks good. It looks beautiful,” she said, turning to ask Malia: “What do you think?” “Love it. We’ll keep it,” replied Malia, who held the leash for Bo, the family’s other dog. “We will keep it,” Mrs. Obama said. Four other trees, all from Wyckoff’s Christmas Tree Farm in Belvidere, N.J.,
will be placed throughout the White House.
The Wyckof f far m won this year’s National Christmas Tree Contest, sponsored by the National Christmas T ree Association. When that farm couldn’t provide a tree to the exacting standards for the Blue Room — its tree must be exactly 18 1/2 feet high — a tree was found at the Botek farm. The White House says that members of the National Christmas Tree Association have presented the official White House tree for display in the Blue Room since 1966.
An army of volunteer decorators and White House staffers will participate in a weekend marathon of tree trimming, wreath hanging and other decorating to transform the building in time for a preview of the holiday decorations that’s set for next week.
As in past years, many of the decorations will honor military families, who are getting a first look at the decorations on Wednesday.

HATCH OUSTS DEXTER IN SEMIS LAWRENCE FOSTER RECORD ASST. SPORTS EDITOR
It seemingly happens every week in football — a flag is thrown, or not thrown, in a critical spot. Normally, there is an outcry of how the penalty should have been called (that was pass interference, right Belichick?) or how the ref should have let them play (the 49ers’ Ahmad Brooks’ roughing the passer penalty on
Drew Brees). What links these calls is that they are controversial in some regard. During the third quarter of Dexter’s NMAA Class 2A semifinal against Hatch Valley on Saturday, there was another flag — it wasn’t controversial — that swung the momentum of the game and helped pave the way for the Bears’ 31-20 win. In a back-and-forth game, Dexter trailed by four with

The Bears lined up in a punt formation, but instead ran a fake. Senior quarterback Chase Carson lofted a pass downfield to Adrian Grajeda, but the ball was tipped and sailed over his
head. On the play, however, Dexter’s Kyle Bonner launched himself at Grajeda in an attempt to break up the pass and hit the receiver in his head. Bonner was flagged for targeting on the play and was ejected from the game. With fresh life, Hatch drove

Generally speaking, basketball at the JUCO level is, and probably always will be, about scoring and making a few key defensive stops late in the game. NMMI did both on Saturday at the Bronco Classic and that’s why the Broncos walked out of the Cahoon Armory with a 104-95 win over Eastern Arizona. The Broncos made two
key stops to protect the lead with less than a minute left and answered nearly every Gila Monster basket with a hoop of their own to stave off a rally. “(Easter n Arizona) got hot. We either fouled them or they hit some long jumpers. I knew they would come back,” Bronco coach Sean Schooley said after the win, which was NMMI’s eighth straight after a 1-2 See NMMI, Page B2

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — That crazy tipped pass for a long game-winning touchdown is now the secondmost stunning and improbable play of Auburn’s wild season. Yes, the Tigers found a way to top “The Immaculate Deflection.” Chris Davis returned a missed field-goal attempt more than 100 yards for a touchdown on the final play to lift No. 4 Auburn to a 34-28 victory over No. 1 Alabama on Saturday, upending the two-time defending national champions’ BCS hopes and preserving the Tigers’ own. “We’re a team of destiny,” Davis said. “We won’t take no for an answer.” He delivered a play that deserves its own nickname. Say the Happiest Return. Or the saddest, depending on which side of the Iron Bowl you sit. Davis caught the ball about 9 yards deep in the end zone after freshman Adam Grif fith’s 57-yard attempt fell short. He then sprinted down the left sideline and cut back with nothing but teammates around him in a second straight hard-to-fathom fin-

ish for the Tigers (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference). “I knew when I caught the ball I would have room to run,” Davis said. “I knew they would have big guys on the field to protect on the field goal. “When I looked back, I said, ‘I can’t believe this.”’ Auburn clinched a spot in the SEC championship game with the stunning victory over the power-

Asked if it was the biggest win of his career, Tigers coach Gus Malzahn said: “It ranks right up there.” But he said he’d “probably” still celebrate
just like he has since his high school coaching days: With a Waffle House meal. “That’s what you coach for, that’s what these kids play for, to get a chance to win the SEC championship,” Malzahn said.

Top 25 capsules By The Associated Press STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Wayne Lyons intercepted two passes from Tommy Rees late in the fourth quarter, and Stanford held off Notre Dame 27-20. The Cardinal (10-2) overcame two interceptions from Kevin Hogan and a penalty that wiped away another touchdown to win their 16th consecutive home game. Stanford will play for its second straight Pac-12 title and Rose Bowl berth next week when it faces No. 13 Arizona State in the conference championship game. Tyler Gaffney ran for 189 yards and a touchdown, and Hogan threw for 158 yards and TD pass to Devon Cajuste to help the Cardinal take a 21-6 lead in the third quarter. Rees nearly rallied the Fighting Irish (84) by throwing two touchdown passes later in the quarter. But interceptions on Notre Dame’s final two drives dashed Notre Dame’s come back.

Antonio Manns each hit two free throws when the Gila Monsters were forced to foul to seal the victory. Early in the game, it looked as if EAC would never get a chance to make things interesting. NMMI connected on 23 of 39 (59 percent) from the field in the opening half to build a 56-38 lead. But, Eastern Arizona quickly trimmed the lead down early in the second half, outscoring the Broncos 23-13 in the first 6 minutes to get within eight. The Gila Monsters got within five at 95-90 with about 2 minutes left before a Biron Joseph’s old-fashioned three-point play made it 98-90. The Monsters scored five in a row after that to set up the ending. The Broncos, who finished the game 39 of 67 (58.2 percent) from the field, cracked the century mark for the third time
No. 9 Baylor 41, TCU 38 FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Bryce Petty threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, and Baylor returned two interceptions for scores. The Bears (10-1, 7-1 Big 12) scored 21 straight points on either side of halftime with just 1 yard from their high-powered offense and bounced back from a blowout loss at Oklahoma State to maintain their hopes for a share of the conference title. Baylor could win the league outright and qualify for a BCS bid, likely the Fiesta Bowl, if it beats Texas and the Cowboys lose to Oklahoma next Saturday. The Horned Frogs (4-8, 2-7) were in position to tie in the final seconds, but Casey Pachall threw his third interception on a pass tipped by receiver Brandon Carter and grabbed by Baylor’s Terrell Burt in the end zone with 11 seconds left.
No. 11 Michigan St. 14, Minnesota 3 EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Jeremy Langford ran for 134 yards and a touchdown, and Michigan State wrapped up an unbeaten regular season in Big Ten play. The Spartans (11-1, 8-0) finished a perfect Big Ten regular season for only the third time. They also did it in 1965 and 1966, when they only had to play seven conference games. Michigan State will face Ohio State in the Big Ten championship game next weekend. The Spartans had already wrapped up the Legends Division title, but there was no letdown against Minnesota (8-4, 4-4). The Spartans’ top-ranked defense forced three turnovers and kept the Golden Gophers out of the end zone, repeating a formula that has brought Michigan State within a win of the Rose Bowl.
No. 13 Arizona St. 58, Arizona 21 TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — D.J. Foster ran for 124 yards and two touchdowns, and Arizona State dismantled rival Arizona to earn homefield advantage in next week’s Pac-12 championship game. Arizona State (10-2, 8-1 Pac-12) won last year’s game by scoring 24 points in the fourth quarter and raced out to a 27-point lead by the midpoint of the second this time. Taylor Kelly threw for 274 yards and two touchdowns, De’Marieya Nelson ran for two scores and the Sun Devils had no trouble without leading rusher and scorer Marion Grice. After scoring the most points in Territorial Cup history, Arizona State will host No. 8 Stanford in next Saturday’s Pac-12 title game with a spot in the Rose Bowl on the line. Arizona (7-5, 4-5) fell flat in trying to boost its bowl pedigree.
No. 22 UCLA 35, No. 23 USC 14 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Brett Hundley passed for 208 yards and rushed for two touchdowns, leading UCLA past Southern California and winning the crosstown showdown for the second straight season. Linebacker Myles Jack and defensive end Eddie Vanderdoes also rushed for touchdowns as the Bruins (9-3, 6-3 Pac-12) earned their first win at the Coliseum since 1997, retaining the Victory Bell by grinding out just their third victory over USC (9-4, 63) in 15 years. Javorius Allen rushed for 123 yards and a score for the Trojans, who had won five straight in their revitalized season under interim coach Ed Orgeron. Cody Kessler passed for 174 yards and hit Xavier Grimble with a TD pass for USC. But its defense couldn’t handle Hundley, who rushed for 80 yards.
Southern downs Grambling 40-17 in Bayou Classic
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Dray Joseph and Lee Dross connected for three touchdowns and Southern defeated Grambling 40-17 on Saturday. The result left the Tigers (1-11, 0-8 Southwestern Athletic Conference) with the program’s worst-ever overall record to close a season which will be remembered more for a mid-season player walkout than anything on the field. Southern (8-4, 7-2) had already won the SWAC’s Western Division and will head to the league championship game against Jackson State in Houston on Dec. 7. But the Jaguars had no interest in letting up on their struggling rivals, racing to a 27-3 halftime lead on a short scoring run by Lenard Tillery and TD catches of 17 and 30 yards by Lee Doss. Grambling pulled to 27-17 on Johnathan Williams’ touchdown passes of 11 yards to Robert Bailey and 8 yards to Anthony McGhee, but Southern forced Williams into an interception and lost fumble to thwart the comeback.

this year and the 90-point plateau for the sixth time in 11 games. They are 6-0 when they score at least 90. Joseph led the Broncos with 24 points on 10-of15 shooting. Carey had a double-double of 22 points and 10 rebounds. Marcus Roper (16), Manns (15) and Will Joyce (10) each scored in double figures. Schooley said the confidence level is high as his team prepares for its WJCAC game on Tuesday against visiting Western Texas. “Pretty high. They’ve bought in,” he said. “It’s not hard to sell them on it when you’re winning. It’s a great spot to be in. “I think we can compete. The conference is still as good as always and there’s ranked teams all over in it, but I like our chances and I like our guys.”

Timberwolves 112, Mavericks 106 DALLAS (AP) — Kevin Martin had 27 points with some key baskets late, Kevin Love had his usual double-double and the Timberwolves snapped a three-game losing streak with a victory at Dallas. Martin made two free throws with just under 6 minutes left to put Minnesota up 9490. Ricky Rubio then had a steal that led to a long fast-break jumper by Martin, who later beat the shot clock with a jumper and then added a 3-pointer. That stretched the lead to 103-92, matching its largest, with 3:12 left. Love finished with 21 points and 11 rebounds. All five starters scored in double figures for Minnesota, which had lost five of its previous six games. Monta Ellis scored 26 points and Dirk Nowitzki had 23 for Dallas.
Wizards 108, Hawks 101 WASHINGTON (AP) — John Wall had 26 points and 12 assists, Trevor Ariza scored 24 points and made five 3-pointers, and the Wizards beat the Hawks. The Wizards have won six of their last eight, and have won eight games in November for the first time since 1984. Martell Webster added 19 points for Washington and also had five 3-pointers. Nene, who returned after missing Friday’s game at Indiana with a right Achilles tendon injury, had 13 points and 12 rebounds. Paul Millsap had 23 points and 10 rebounds for Atlanta, which cut an 18-point, third-quarter deficit to 81-79 with 9:42 left, but could not get closer.
Cavaliers 97, Bulls 93 CLEVELAND (AP) — Andrew Bynum and Dion Waiters each scored 20 points, and the Cavaliers held off a late rally by the Bulls. Cleveland, which had lost five straight and eight of nine, built a 12-point lead in fourth quarter, but the Bulls rallied for an 8887 edge on Tony Snell’s basket with 3:59 remaining. Bynum’s jumper put Cleveland ahead again with 3:35 left, and Kyrie Irving scored after stealing the ball from Kirk Hinrich. Waiters converted another turnover into a layup to put the Cavaliers ahead 93-88 with 2:09 to play. Luol Deng scored 27 points for the Bulls, who finished 1-5 on their road trip in which they lost point guard Derrick Rose for the season with a knee injury. Irving added 19 points for Cleveland.
Nets 97, Grizzlies 88 MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Joe Johnson scored 26 points, Brook Lopez added 12 of his 20 in the fourth quarter, and the Nets beat the Grizzlies. Andray Blatche scored 21 off the Nets bench, making all three shots from beyond the arc. Blatche entered the game 1 for 7 from 3-point range this season. The Nets snapped a two-game losing streak and handed Memphis its fourth straight home loss. Quincy Pondexter, who had not played in the Grizzlies’ two previous games, scored a career-high 22 points. Mike Conley had 16 points and 10 assists, while Tony Allen had 13 points. The Nets led by as many as 16 and withstood a fourth-quarter rally led by Pondexter that pulled Memphis within one.
Jazz 112, Suns 104 PHOENIX (AP) — Rookie Trey Burke had the biggest game of his young NBA career, scoring 20 points to lead seven Utah players in double figures and the Jazz to their first road victory of the season, over the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night. Richard Jefferson added 15 for the Jazz, who were 0-9 on the road entering the contest and lost 112-101 at home to Phoenix on Friday night. Marvin Williams and Derrick Favors added 14 apiece. Goran Dragic had 24 points and nine assists for the Suns. Channing Frye added 17 points for Phoenix. Utah has won two of three but has just three victories in 18 games this season. Burke’s previous high was 14 in the Jazz’s overtime win over Chicago two games ago.
Bucks 92, Celtics 85 MILWAUKEE (AP) — O.J. Mayo rebounded from a subpar game with 22 points and the Milwaukee Bucks snapped an 11-game losing streak with a victory over the Boston Celtics on Saturday night. Two of Milwaukee’s three victories this season have come against Boston. The Bucks beat the Celtics, 105-98, on Nov. 1 in Boston.

Buckeyes stop late try, beat Michigan ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — The 110th game between Ohio State and Michigan might have been the most thrilling, a back-andforth affair that came down to one final play. The Wolverines went for the win — and the Buckeyes stayed undefeated. Tyvis Powell intercepted Devin Gardner’s 2-point conversion pass with 32 seconds left and No. 3 Ohio State held on for a 42-41 victory against Michigan on Saturday as one of the greatest rivalries in sports added another memorable chapter to its storied history. “That’s an instant classic,” Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said. Gardner threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Devin Funchess to make it 42-41, but instead of kicking for the tie and possibly pushing the game to overtime, Wolverines coach Brady Hoke asked his players if they wanted to go for it and got a unanimous response. “We played the game to win,” Hoke said. Gardner tried to zip a pass to Drew Dileo into traffic near the goal line, but Powell came up with it and the quarterback was left lying on his back with his arms extended to his side, the back of his helmet resting on the cold turf.
“We felt like we could win the game right there,” Gardner said, looking and sounding as saddened as any athlete after a setback. Buckeyes cor nerback Roby Bradley recovered the onside kick to seal Ohio State’s 24th consecutive victory and keep its national championship hopes alive. Meyer insisted the streak was not as significant as winning his second game in as many tries against Michigan. “No question — the win over our rival is better,” he said. Braxton Miller accounted for a career-high matching five touchdowns for Ohio State (12-0, 8-0) and Carlos Hyde ran for a 1-yard score with 2:20 left to make it 4235. The Buckeyes will play Michigan State in the Big Ten title game next Saturday in Indianapolis, needing to beat the Spartans, and have No. 1 Alabama or No. 2 Florida State lose a game to have a chance to reach the BCS national championship game. The Wolverines (7-5, 3-5) started strong as a 16 1-2-point underdog and didn’t wilt when Ohio State went up 35-21 late in the third quarter, one drive after Gardner threw an incomplete pass on fourth-and-2 when Hoke opted against attempting a 31yard field goal.
“They didn’t let up at all,” Miller said. Michigan, though, couldn’t make a pivotal play in a shootout that might’ve given it the biggest upset in the series since Bo Schembechler’s first team at Michigan beat what Woody Hayes said was his best Buckeyes squad in 1969. “I threw an interception that cost us the win,” said Gardner, who limped into a news conference with a protective boot on his left foot. “That’s what I will remember.” Miller ran for 153 yards and three TDs and threw for 133 yards and two scores. Hyde ran for 226 yards to help Ohio State win for the ninth time in 10 games against Michigan, but he fumbled in the fourth quarter to help Michigan tie the game for a fourth time with 5:01 left. Both teams scored at least 41 points for the first time in their rivalry that dates to 1897. “I have such great respect for this rivalry,” Meyer said. “Coach Hayes was from a different generation. He would have wanted a 10-9 game, but he would have wanted to see the two teams playing as hard as they can.” Gardner was 32 of 45 for 451 yards and four TDs, connecting nine times for 175 yards and a score to Jeremy Gallon, and ran for a 1-yard TD that gave Michi-

Gardner fumbled in the third quarter and Ohio State took advantage of the turnover on the ensuing drive with a Miller’s go-ahead, 3-yard TD. It was a slug fest — literally for a few moments. The teams exchanged pushes and some punches in the second quarter after a Michigan kickoff. The Buckeyes lost starting
Williams sparks Lobos in win ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Kendall Williams just could not miss from the foul line Saturday for New Mexico. Sixteen times he strode to the line and each time he knocked it down, setting a school record to help the Lobos beat San Diego 7366. “It’s kind of the makeup of our team with our two big men,” said Williams, who finished with 28 points. “They’re getting doubled, I’m getting open lanes, open shots, so I’m just being aggressive, still trying to finish some plays but if I can continue to get to the line, it’s just as productive.” Those big men, Alex Kirk and Cameron Bairstow, dominated inside. Kirk had his sixth double-double of the season with 21 points

and 11 rebounds while adding four blocks and Bairstow had 16 points and two blocks in the closing minutes when the games was still in jeopardy. “Alex and Cam are playing at a high level and Kendall was phenomenal,” New Mexico coach Craig Neal said. The trio needed to be at their best because no other Lobos contributed offensively until Hugh Greenwood knocked down a 3pointer at the 8:16 mark of the second half. And outside of Williams, Kirk and Bairstow, who
combined to go 19-for-32, the rest of the Lobos went 2-for-17. “We really need help with our perimeter shooting,” Neal said. “But I have to get somebody else to score. Somebody has to get us some bench points.” But in this game, the Lobos (5-1) got just enough help to pull out the victory, which came down the final minute of play. Eight of Williams’ free throws came in the closing two minutes, helping New Mexico break out of a 6161 all tie. Johnny Dee scored 25 for
the final 37 yards in eight plays, the final of which was an 8-yard TD pass from Carson to Juan Caraza that made it 3120. Both Dexter coach Frank Sandoval and Hatch coach Jack Cisco said that the sequence of events on the fake punt changed the game. “You are right, it was a big change,” Sandoval said. “Kyle can throw it and I have receivers that can get open and catch it. (Backup quarterback) Dominic Lomeli is going to be an excellent quarterback, but we are much better in terms of being versatile and being able to Shawn Naranjo Photo run more things.” Dexter running back Israel Gonzalez (23) runs out of tackle “Just personally and for by Hatch Valley’s Chase Carson during their game, Saturcoach Sandoval, I hated day.

the Toreros (7-2) and Duda Sanadze added 18 while Christopher Anderson had 12 assists. Dee hit a 3-pointer with 2:05 left to tie it at 61 before Williams went on a streak of eight straight points that included six points from the line and a fastbreak dunk. The Toreros used a 15-4 run midway through the first half to take their biggest lead at 27-15 but New Mexico closed the first half with a 17-3 run, taking its first lead at 32-30 with 3.5 seconds left when Kirk slammed home a missed shot. Neither team took a lead of more than seven points in the second half. “The dif ference in the game was New Mexico’s ability to draw fouls and make the foul shots,” said Toreros coach Bill Grier. The Lobos went 26 of 29 from the line compared to 7 of 8 for San Diego. “They got us in foul trouble,” he said. “That makes things so much more difficult to guard. Bairstow and Kirk put so much pressure in the paint. They’re so physical.”

Aggies get gridiron win, take hoops loss LAS CRUCES (AP) — Andrew McDonald threw for two TD’s as New Mexico State avoided the FBS-Independent cellar by beating Idaho 24-16 on Saturday. Idaho and New Mexico State held nothing back in the first half trading passing TDs and field goals and Idaho (1-11) led 13-10 going in to the break. McDonald tossed a 7yard TD to Austin Franklin and Adam Shapiro ran for another Aggie TD in the fourth quarter giving New Mexico State (2-10) an advantage Idaho could not overcome. Idaho outgained the Aggies 459 to 371 yards, but New Mexico State had only one penalty while Idaho gathered eight for 95 yards. Colorado St. 85, New Mexico St. 83 FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — J.J. Avila scored 29 points, including the game-winning layup in
the final seconds, lifting Colorado State to an 8583 win over New Mexico State on Saturday. Avila got help from Daniel Bejarano, who added 11 points and hauled in 15 rebounds, Jon Octeus with 15 points, and Marcus Holt with 11 to keep the Rams (6-2) undefeated on their home court this season. The Rams took advantage of 21 turnovers by the Aggies. New Mexico State (7-2) trailed by as many as nine points late in the second half before narrowing the gap with a trio of 3-pointers and then tying the game at 83 on a pair of free throws by Daniel Mullings with 7 seconds left. Colorado State then hit the game-winning layup, snapping New Mexico State’s sevengame win streak. Mullings led the Aggies with 24 points and nine assists, while DK Eldridge added 23 points.

Florida St. stays unbeaten, thumps rival Gators
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Kelvin Benjamin shook off one tackler and then three more, bullying his way into the end zone to finish off Florida State’s most impressive play on a day filled with them. Benjamin was clearly a mismatch — just like the game. Jameis Winston threw three touchdown passes to Benjamin, and No. 2 Florida State moved a step closer to playing for the national championship with a 377 victory against rival Florida on Saturday. “T remendous,” FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. “KB has real advantages with his size, speed and athleticism. He can be a very, very special player, and he’s starting to develop into that guy.” The Seminoles improved to 120 for the first time since 1999 and likely will earn a spot in the Bowl Championship Series title game by beating Duke in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game next Saturday. Florida, meanwhile, ended its worst season since 1979. The Gators (4-8) lost their final seven games and missed a bowl for the first time since 1990. Florida’s bowl streak had been the second-longest in the country, behind Florida State. “We hit rock bottom this year,” Florida guard Max Garcia said. “I feel like the only way we can go is
up.” The Seminoles were four touchdown favorites in a lopsided matchup that lived up to advance billing. Although the outcome was never in doubt, the Gators made it interesting early with some stout defense. They hit Winston several times, even late once, and stuffed FSU’s running game. But with its offense floundering once again — Florida managed just three first downs in the first half — the defense eventually wore down. And Winston & Co. took advantage. “His competitiveness is ridiculous,” Fisher said of Winston. “He’s a competitor. Nothing fazes that guy. He thrives on that. ... The guy’s ability to learn and process information is what puts him over the top. He can think. He understands what he’s doing at all times. And when he makes a mistake, he can come off and tell you exactly why he did it, what he did or didn’t do right.” Winston, the Heisman Trophy candidate being investigated for his role in an alleged rape, hooked up with Benjamin for touchdown passes of 45 and 29 yards in the second quarter. Winston found his 6-foot-5 target again in the third, a 56-yard connection that would have gone the distance had Benjamin not fallen

down while making the catch. Devonta Freeman scored on the next play, weaving untouched from 11 yards out and putting the Seminoles ahead 27-0. Winston and Benjamin recorded the hat trick with a 4-yard score in the fourth.
FSU outgained Florida 456193, most of it through the air. Winston completed 19 of 31 passes for 327 yards. Benjamin caught nine passes for a careerhigh 212 yards, beating Loucheiz Purifoy early and often. Benjamin’s previous high was 103
yards receiving at Boston College earlier this year. “Just doing the little things to be a great receiver, basically,” Benjamin said. Skyler Mornhinweg finished 20-of-25 passing for 115 yards for Florida.
No. 5 Missouri wins SEC East with win over Aggies
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Henry Josey watched helplessly from the sideline last fall, rehabbing from a serious knee injury, while Missouri was getting pushed around in its first SEC season. The senior running back’s legs produced the go-ahead score in a win that put the fifth-ranked Tigers in the SEC championship game. “Those guys were 5 yards away from me before I could even get close to them,” Josey said of his breakaway 57-yard run that helped Missouri wrap up the SEC East with a 28-21 victory over No. 19 Texas A&M on Saturday night. “A big hole opened up and I took it.” Missouri (11-1, 7-1 SEC) advances to the conference championship game against Auburn — a matchup of schools very lightly regarded before the season. Missouri has made a six-win improvement from its initial SEC season and fourth-ranked Auburn (11-1, 7-1) has topped last year’s total by eight after stunning No. 1 Alabama. “This tells everybody in the whole United States that Mizzou’s the real deal,” said wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, who caught seven passes for 93 yards and a touchdown. “Last year was just last year. “It’s not about that, it’s just about what we’re capable of doing and what we’re going to do and how we did it.” Missouri beat its fourth ranked opponent and reached 11 wins for the third time in school history, twice under Pinkel. Another win matches the school record set in 2007. Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel was held in check for the second straight week, throwing one touchdown pass and rushing for 21 yards on 11 carries. He was 24 for 35 for 195 yards.
AP Photo Missouri’s Henry Josey, left, scores on a 57-yard TD run during the fourth quarter the Tigers’ game against Texas A&M, Saturday.
“In the second half, we all calmed down and we communicated,” linebacker Kentrell Brothers said. “We were all on the same page and got it done.” Coach Kevin Sumlin didn’t make Manziel available for the post-game. Reports have indicated Manziel, a redshirt sophomore, is close to making a decision whether to enter the NFL draft next April. “He’s had better performances, he’s had worse performances,” Sumlin said. “There’s pressure on him to perform at a high level
all the time.” Sumlin discounted a report Manziel, also held to one TD pass last week in a loss at LSU, has been hampered by a thumb injury “If he wasn’t healthy enough to play, he wouldn’t have played,” Sumlin said. The Aggies (8-4, 4-4) have lost consecutive games for the first time under coach Kevin Sumlin, who the school said earlier in the day agreed in principle on a new sixyear contract that could keep him on the
Shaw leads South Carolina to 31-17 win COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw was thrilled with his accomplishments Saturday, even if they didn’t lead the 10th-ranked Gamecocks to the Southeastern Conference championship. Shaw threw for one touchdown and rushed for another to lead South Carolina to its record fifth straight over No. 6 Clemson with 31-17 victory Saturday night. “Connor Shaw, ah man, the best quarterback in school history,” Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier said. “He’s probably the difference maker completely for us.” Gamecock players rushed to the student section in celebration of the unprecedented win. They’d hoped to have more to celebrate as SEC Eastern Division champs, but No. 5 Missouri defeated No. 19 Texas A&M 28-21 about 45 minutes after South Carolina’s win to eliminate the Gamecocks (10-2). Shaw moved to 26-5 alltime as a starter and ended his career a perfect 17-0 at home in the sweetest way possible. “This is why we came to

South Carolina,” Shaw said. The T igers (10-2) had never lost five consecutive games to their rival in a series that began in 1896 — which they still lead 65-424. The loss also left recordsetting quarterback Tajh Boyd 0-for -4 against the Gamecocks. “We’ve been achieving
things no one at South Carolina’s done before,” cornerback Victor Hampton said. “I told the boys, ‘Don’t stop at five.’ Keep going.” There’s no reason to think they won’t — and using the same formula of ball control and timely turnovers. South Carolina forced six
turnovers, four of them in the final quarter as Clemson (10-2) tried to rally back after Mike Davis’ 2yard TD run broke a 17-all time with 11:47 to go. “Just give them credit. We never had six turnovers before,” Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. “That wasn’t part of the script.”
job through 2019. He’s 19-6. Thousands of fans among a sellout crowd of 62,197 — nearly all of them clad in black, stormed the field after the game ended. The field wasn’t cleared for at least 20 minutes. Missouri had been 11-44 under Pinkel when trailing at the half. Pinkel has 101 wins in 13 seasons at Missouri, tied for Don Faurot for most in school history. Texas A&M has one of the worst defenses against the run in the nation, allowing 221 yards per game. Missouri totaled 225 yards with a 5.1-yard average, but until Josey’s breakaway run, the Aggies had done a nice job Starting from its 34, Missouri’s decisive string began innocently with a 4-yard carry by Josey and a 5-yard carry by quarterback James Franklin. Josey busted free up the middle on third-and-1. “What a great play,” coach Gary Pinkel said. “What a great kid.” Texas A&M never threatened the rest of the game and has lost four of the last five in the series. The exception was a showcase for Manziel, who threw for three touchdowns and ran for two scores in a 5929 rout last year that was a 35-point rout by halftime. Tra Carson broke two tackles on a 31yard scoring run that was also the first touchdown allowed by Missouri in the first quarter in six games. Derel Walker’s 32yard reception made it 14-7 late in the half. Walker’s score came just 1:10 after Franklin’s 38-yard touchdown pass to L’Damian Washington. Manziel rolled out to buy time and Michael Sam tackled him a beat too late.

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — That crazy tipped pass for a long game-winning touchdown is now the second-most stunning and improbable play of Auburn’s wild season. Yes, the Tigers found a way to top “The Immaculate Deflection.” Chris Davis returned a missed field-goal attempt more than 100 yards for a touchdown on the final play to lift No. 4 Auburn to a 34-28 victory over No. 1 Alabama on Saturday, upending the twotime defending national champions’ BCS hopes and preserving the Tigers’ own. “We’re a team of destiny,” Davis said. “We won’t take no for an answer.” He delivered a play that deserves its own nickname. Say the Happiest Return. Or the saddest, depending on which side of the Iron Bowl you sit. Davis caught the ball about 9 yards deep in the end zone after freshman Adam Griffith’s 57yard attempt fell short. He then sprinted down
the left sideline and cut back with nothing but teammates around him in a second straight hard-to-fathom finish for the T igers (11-1, 7-1 Southeaster n Conference). “I knew when I caught the ball I would have room to run,” Davis said. “I knew they would have big guys on the field to protect on the field goal. “When I looked back, I said, ‘I can’t believe this.”’ Aubur n clinched a spot in the SEC championship game with the stunning victory over the powerhouse from across the state. The Crimson Tide (11-1, 7-1) several times seemed poised to continue its run toward the first three-peat in modern college football, but couldn’t put the Tigers away. Asked if it was the biggest win of his career, T igers coach Gus Malzahn said: “It ranks right up there.” But he said he’d “probably” still celebrate just like he has since his high school coaching days: With a Waffle House meal. “That’s what you coach for, that’s what these kids play for, to get

NFL This Week: Only three with two winners
The rematch has lost some of its luster with Kansas City dropping its last two games and Denver’s collapse in New England after beating the Chiefs. Still, the AFC West showdown is far better than many other matchups this holiday week, and there remains plenty on the line. Only three games involve two teams with winning marks: Denver (9-2) at Kansas City (9-2); Arizona (7-4) at Philadelphia (6-5); and the Monday nighter, with New Orleans (9-2) at Seattle (10-1), a matchup of the top two teams in the AP Pro32 and in the NFC. The Broncos handed the Chiefs their first loss two weeks ago — yep, they are meeting twice in three weeks in a scheduling quirk. Then San Diego torched what had been the league’s top defense when linebackers and sacks threats Tamba Hali and Justin Houston left with injuries. Hali expects to play. Houston’s availability, just as critical for KC, is far less likely. “It’s a division game, that’s the biggest thing. As the season goes on the playoff implications get bigger and bigger,” Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith said. “Regardless of we both lost last week, it’s still right there in front of us. No question, that’s the focus.” As it is in Denver, where folks are questioning Peyton Manning’s ability to win in the cold after his so-so performance at New England. Temperatures are not projected to dip below freezing at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday. “We’re sitting here, we’re tied for first,” interim coach Jack Del Rio said. “We’re 9-2; we’ve won a lot of games. We’ve got some ball in front of us and we’re getting excited for the very next one. That’s where we are.” Also Sunday, it’s New England at Houston, Cincinnati at San Diego, Tennessee at Indianapolis, Tampa Bay at Carolina, Chicago at Minnesota, St. Louis at San Francisco, Miami at the New York Jets, the New York Giants at Washington, Jacksonville at Cleveland, and Atlanta vs. Buffalo at Toronto. The holiday week began Thursday with the Lions routing the Packers 40-10. Matthew Stafford made up for some mistakes with three touchdown passes, including one to Calvin Johnson, to help Detroit score 37 straight points. Dallas also won its traditional Thanksgiving game, with DeMarco Murray running for three touchdowns in a 31-24 victory over Oakland. The Cowboys (7-5) moved two games above .500 for the first time since late last season, while the Raiders (4-8) are guaranteed an 11th straight season without a winning record since going to the Super Bowl during the 2002 season. The night matchup turned into another close game in the AFC North rivalry between Pittsburgh and Baltimore. Justin Tucker kicked five field goals, and the Ravens snuffed a conversion pass with 1:03 left to escape with a 22-20 victory. After Pittsburgh scored on a 1-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Jerricho Cotchery to get within two points, Roethlisberger’s conversion pass slipped through the hands of Emmanuel Sanders, who was screened by Chykie Brown. New Orleans (9-2) at Seattle (10-1), MNF If this one is as memorable as their last meeting, in a 2010 divisional playoff game when the Seahawks, a 7-9 NFC West winner, knocked off the Saints, then it will be special. The league surely is hoping so by scheduling it for prime time. Marshawn Lynch’s 67-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter remains a must-see highlight. He’s been a beast again this year, needing 75 yards to reach 1,000 for the fifth time in career. Seattle has won a franchise-best 13 straight at home, and no one relishes visiting CenturyLink Field in the postseason. Nor does anyone really want to go to New Orleans, where the Saints are perfect in 2013. A Saints win will put them in prime position for NFC home-field advantage. Drew Brees has won nine straight starts on Monday nights with a 123.6 passer rating.
Arizona (7-4) at Philadelphia (6-5) Two first-year coaches — Arizona’s Bruce Arians won NFL Coach of the Year as an interim in Indianapolis filling in last year for Chuck Pagano, who was battling leukemia — with teams on the rise. The Cardinals have won four straight and haven’t won five in a row since 1977. Carson Palmer has had two consecutive big games, and Larry Fitzgerald tends to toy with the Philadelphia secondary. Fitzgerald was NFC offensive player of week following each of his last two games against the Eagles and has nine TD catches in five games against them. Eagles have won three in a row. The offense under Chip Kelly has already set a franchise record with nine games of 400 total yards. The defense has held opponents to 21 points or less in each of the last seven games.
New England (8-3) at Houston (2-9) It’s a December game, which means the Patriots are more dangerous than ever. They’ve won 15 of their last 16 in the month, and they are getting healthier on offense, if not on defense. Their confidence should be soaring after
rallying from a 24-0 hole at halftime to beat Denver last Sunday night. Houston has lost a franchise-record nine in a row and is in contention for the top overall draft pick.
Cincinnati (7-4) at San Diego (5-6) With the Broncos, Chiefs and Colts stumbling lately, the Bengals suddenly are in the mix for a first-round bye if they can surge to the AFC North title. The schedule isn’t daunting, but this week the Chargers come off an uplifting win at Kansas City and are in the wildcard chase. San Diego plays four of its final five games at home, which would seem to give the Chargers an edge in that race. But they are only 2-2 at Qualcomm Stadium.
Tennessee (5-6) at Indianapolis (7-4) The T itans have never won in Lucas Oil Stadium (0-5). A first victory there would make it a race again in the AFC South. Indy, though, has gone 26 consecutive games without back-to-back losses. Tennessee tight end Delanie Walker and Colts linebacker Erik Walden will square off for the first time since Walden ripped of f Walker’s helmet and delivAP Photos ered a head butt, which drew Walden a one-game Seattle’s Russell Wilson will need to be on top of his game when the Seahawks host New Orleans on suspension from the NFL. Monday night. Tampa Bay (3-8) at Carolina (8-3) Two streaking teams, with the Panthers establishing themselves as a title threat with seven straight wins. Tampa Bay lost its first eight and now has won three in a row. Rookie quarterback Mike Glennon is the first in NFL history to throw a TD pass in each of his first eight games. He faces the stingiest defense points-wise in the league (151). Carolina’s Cam Newton in the last five games against Tampa Bay has a 106.6 passer rating and five touchdowns rushing. Newton has led winning drives in three straight games.
Chicago (6-5) at Minnesota (2-8-1) The Bears have alternated wins and losses in each of the last seven weeks, and that should mean a victory in their last trip to the Metrodome before it is demolished. They have lost eight of their last 10 there. Maybe the spotlight belongs on the kick returners: NFL career record setter Devin Hester for Chicago, rookie Cordarrelle Patterson for the Vikes. Or maybe not: Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is 154 yards from 10,000 for his career, and the Bears’ banged-up defense is on track to give up more than 2,300 yards rushing. No, not on Sunday, despite how dangerous Peterson is, but for the entire season.
St. Louis (5-6) at San Francisco (7-4) The Rams are seeking their first three-game winning streak of 2013 and have no fear of the 49ers after beating and tying them last year, when San Francisco went to the Super Bowl. Rams rookie WR Tavon Austin had a 65-yard TD run last week against Chicago for his fourth TD in a row from beyond midfield and sixth overall. Don’t expect such long-range antics against a Niners defense that ranks sixth overall and is as physical as any. Receiver Michael Crabtree is expected to make his season debut for San Francisco following May surgery on a torn right Achilles tendon.
New York Giants (4-7) at Washington (3-8) The NFL didn’t flex this game away from prime time, perhaps hoping one of these NFC East weaklings would have made a turnaround. The Giants were doing so with four consecutive victories following an 0-6 start, but they fell at home to Dallas last weekend. At least New York has found a running game. Andre Brown has rushed for 308 yards in three games after returning from a broken leg. The Redskins have lost three straight and clinched a 10th non-winning record in 13 years. Washington is 0-4 in night games this season.
Jacksonville (2-9) at Cleveland (4-7) Remember that almost-guaranteed top overall draft pick for Jacksonville next May? It is disappearing quickly as the Jags won two of their last three. Just when the Browns seemed to have a shot at a run to the postseason, they’ve dropped two straight within the AFC North. They’re back to Brandon Weeden at quarterback with Jason Campbell having a concussion. His best target, Josh Gordon, set a team record with 237 yards receiving last week and tied a team mark with 14 catches.
Atlanta (2-9) vs. Buffalo (4-7) at Toronto Remember how close the Falcons were to making the Super Bowl last season? One play. Now, they are in strong contention to start off the draft next spring, a shocking collapse. Atlanta was the first NFC team eliminated from the playoff picture. Buffalo is 1-4 in the regular season in games at the Rogers Centre. Led by DE Mario Williams’ 11 sacks, Buffalo is tied with New Orleans for the NFL lead with 37. Its defense has 16 interceptions, also tied for first, with Seattle.
Miami (5-6) at New York Jets (5-6) Hard to believe one of these teams will be solidly in wild-card contention after they meet at the Meadowlands. New York’s wins and losses in alternating weeks ended with a defeat at Baltimore last Sunday, and rookie QB Geno Smith seems lost. It doesn’t help that other than RB Chris Ivory, he has virtually no skilled players at the skill positions.

Make the holidays more safe and less stressful STEVE WOLFE ROSWELL SAFE COALITION
It’s a shame that during holiday shopping seasons, we can become easy prey for robberies, vehicle burglaries, and other crimes that accompany this time of year. A few simple safety guidelines can help. An important safety concern when you shop is parking. If you expect to be shopping at a mall after dark, try to park near the last store you will visit, as close to the exit as possible. Make sure your doors are locked and that any valuables are out of sight. Locking items and packages in the trunk of your car is a good idea. Gift-wrapped packages are especially vulnerable to theft. And make careful note of where you have parked your vehicle. You do
not want to walk all over the parking lot at night trying to find your car! Also, be sure to get your keys in your hands as you approach the car. Be particularly aware of vans parked close to you. There are many other ways to prevent your becoming a victim during the Christmas season. These include proper handling of credit and debit cards, carrying of
purses and billfolds, minimizing the cash you carry and being very much aware of your surroundings. However, a pleasant holiday season entails more than just safety. What about your mental state? You do not want to be all stressed out! Last year at this time, I had become amused at a relative’s distress when her cookies were too dry! OMG! Soon, however, I began to realize that while this season is a wonder ful time of sharing with family and friends for many of us, it can be a time of headaches and heartaches for others. And so, here are some easy steps to help deal with daily stress in our lives, especially at the holidays. Give up on perfection. While we’d like everything during Christmas and New Year’s to be
perfect, we should not count on that perfect gift, that perfect dinner, and that perfect family interaction. Our Norman Rockwell painting will likely not be. We must accept some missteps and miscues with a sense of humor. Have fun and enjoy life each day. There may be some dry cookies. Even though Christmas is in the air, the rest of our lives go on. Pace yourself. If shopping is stressful to you, perhaps you can do some of it online. You may need to give yourself a little recovery time. You should not be afraid to say “no,” and should put yourself in charge of your activities. Tread carefully, of course, to avoid hurt feelings. Don’t overdo it! For many of us, the temptations of too much drink, too much eggnog, sweet treats and baked goods are abun-
dant at this time of the year. You can enjoy all of these things, but do so in moderation. Over-imbibing through the holiday season is only going to tire you out and make you feel worse. Finally, (and this may be the most difficult of all), try to give yourself 20 minutes of “me” time every day! We need to close out the world to allow stress to actually leave our bodies. Muscles will remain tensed, joints will ache, and immune systems be weakened by the constant bombardment of holiday stress triggers. Just 20 minutes. Close the door. Get rid of “devices of interruption” (my words) and just close your eyes. All of these things are gifts you can give yourself to enhance your emotional and physical well-being.

DALLAS (AP) — Help yourself to some nuts this holiday season: Regular nut eaters were less likely to die of cancer or heart disease — in fact, were less likely to die of any cause — during a 30-year Harvard study. Nuts have long been called heart-healthy, and the study is the largest ever done on whether eating them affects mortality. Researchers tracked 119,000 men and women and found that those who ate nuts roughly every day were 20 percent less likely to die during the study period than those who never ate nuts. Eating nuts less often also appeared to lower the death risk, in direct proportion to consumption. The risk of dying of heart disease dropped 29 percent and the risk of dying of cancer fell 11 percent among those who had nuts seven or more times a week compared with people who never ate them. The benefits were seen from peanuts as well as from pistachios, almonds, walnuts and other tree nuts. The researchers did not look at how the nuts were prepared — oiled or salted, raw or roasted. A bonus: Nut eaters stayed slimmer. “There’s a general perception that if you eat more nuts you’re going to get fat. Our results show the opposite,” said Dr. Ying Bao of Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. She led the study, published in Thursday’s New England Journal of Medicine. The National Institutes of Health and the International Tree Nut Council Nutrition Research & Education Foundation sponsored the study, but the nut group had no role in designing it or reporting the results. Researchers don’t know why nuts may boost health. It could be that their unsaturated fatty acids, minerals and other nutrients lower cholesterol and inflammation and reduce other problems, as earlier studies seemed to show. Observational studies like this one can’t prove cause and effect, only suggest a connection. Research on diets is especially tough, because it can be difficult to single out the effects of any one food. People who eat more nuts may eat them on salads, for example, and some of the benefit may come from the leafy greens, said Dr. Robert Eckel, a University of Colorado cardiologist and former president of the American Heart Association. Dr. Ralph Sacco, a University of Miami neurologist who also is a former heart association president, agreed. “Sometimes when you eat nuts you eat less of something else like potato chips,” so the benefit may come from avoiding an unhealthy food, Sacco said. The Harvard group has long been known for solid science on diets. Its findings build on a major study earlier this year — a rigorous experiment that found a Mediterranean-style diet supplemented with nuts cuts the chance of heart-related problems, especially strokes, in older people at high risk of them. Many previous studies tie nut consumption to lower risks of heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer and other maladies. In 2003, the Food and Drug Administration said a fistful of nuts a day as part of a low-fat diet may reduce the risk of heart disease. The heart association recommends four servings of unsalted, unoiled nuts a week and warns against eating too many, since they are dense in calories. The new research combines two studies that started in the 1980s on 76,464 female nurses and 42,498 male health professionals. They filled out surveys on food and lifestyle habits every two to four years, including how often they ate a serving (1 ounce) of nuts. Study participants who often ate nuts were healthier — they weighed less, exercised more and were less likely to smoke, among other things. After taking these and other things into account, researchers still saw a strong benefit from nuts. Compared with people who never ate nuts, those who had them less than once a week reduced their risk of death 7 percent; once a week, 11 percent; two to four times a week, 13 percent; and seven or more times a week, 20 percent. “I’m very confident” the observations reflect a true benefit, Bao said. “We did so many analyses, very sophisticated ones,” to eliminate other possible explanations. For example, they did separate analyses on smokers and non-smokers, heavy and light exercisers, and people with and without diabetes, and saw a consistent benefit from nuts. At a heart association conference in Dallas this week, Penny Kris-Etheron, a Pennsylvania State University nutrition scientist, reviewed previous studies on this topic. “We’re seeing benefits of nut consumption on cardiovascular disease as well as body weight and diabetes,” said Kris-Etherton, who has consulted for nut makers and also served on many scientific panels on dietary guidelines. “We don’t know exactly what it is” about nuts that boosts health or which ones are best, she said. “I tell people to eat mixed nuts.”

Wisconsin upset by Penn St.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Confusion reigned on Senior Day for Wisconsin. Hungry for a statement win and aware of they were considered heavy underdogs, the Penn State Nittany Lions pounced on the mistakes. Strong-armed freshman quarterback Christian Hackenberg threw for 339 yards and four touchdowns — showing the poise and touch of a veteran — and the Nittany Lions defense came up clutch on the road to upset the 14th-ranked Badgers 31-24 on Saturday. Wisconsin entered the day on the cusp of eligibility for an at-large berth in the Bowl Championship Series game. Say goodbye to the BCS, Badgers. “That’s not going to happen and so we’ll move forward. Such is life,” coach Gary Andersen said. “The way we played today and the way I coached them, obviously, we don’t deserve to have that opportunity.” A team that had improved each week this season played its worst game of the year. Way too many mistakes and mental blunders to overcome. Joel Stave was 29 of 53 for 339 yards and three touchdowns, but had three second-half interceptions for Wisconsin (9-3, 6-2,

Big Ten). Melvin Gordon had 91 yards on 13 carries, but the Badgers’ vaunted rushing attack really was never much of a factor. The Nittany Lions (7-5, 4-4) secured a statement win and capitalized on the interceptions, turning one into a 59-yard touchdown pass to Eugene Lewis to make it 31-14 with 13 minutes to go. The Badgers scored 10 points in a span of 1:25 of

linebacker Chris Borland said. “We wanted to win so bad for so many reasons, and it wasn’t to be.” Give much of the credit to Hackenberg. Wisconsin was giving up just 176 yards passing a game all year, but Hackenberg beat that in the first half alone, going 13 of 16 for 221 yards and two touchdowns, the second coming to a wide-open Lewis from 3 yards.

Duke beats UNC, earns berth in ACC title game CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Duke coach David Cutcliffe and his players talked openly all season about winning a division title and earning a spot in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. On Saturday, the No. 24 Blue Devils made the once-thinkable goal a reality — complete with Cutcliffe being carried off the field as his players celebrated with Duke fans in their rival’s stadium. Ross Martin kicked a 27-yard field goal with 2:22 left for a 27-25 win at North Carolina, clinching the Coastal Division championship with the Blue Devils’ eighth straight victory. Duke faces No. 2 Florida State in next weekend’s ACC title game in Charlotte, where the heavy underdog Blue Devils will go for their first league crown since 1989. “It’s easy to look forward to next week,” left guard Dave Harding said, “but right now I think it’s OK to kind of revel in what we’ve just
done.” Anthony Boone threw for 274 yards and two touchdowns to Jamison Crowder for the Blue Devils (10-2, 6-2 ACC), who also secured the long-suffering program’s first 10-win season. DeVon Edwards returned a kickoff for a 99-yard touchdown and had the game-sealing interception with 13 seconds left to tur n away the Tar Heels (6-6, 4-4). That play started the celebration on the Duke sideline. Minutes after Boone’s kneel down closed it out, defensive linemen Sydney Sar miento and Justin Foxx had hoisted Cutcliffe on their shoulders, giving the sixth-year coach a great view of his Blue Devils mingling with celebrating fans in a corner of UNC’s Kenan Stadium. “It was pretty special, a great moment,” Cutcliffe said. “I don’t mind these Gatorade baths. Our equipment people have to kind of figure out how to launder all that stuff I’m wearing.”

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — For Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown, it’s fairly apparent the difference between his SMU Mustangs from last season to this. “We never would have won a game like this (last year).” Brown said following SMU’s nail-biting 55-52 victory over state rival Texas A&M in the consolation game of Corpus Christi Challenge. Nic Moore paced SMU (6-2) with 16 points. The Mustangs got 14 points and six boards from Yanick Moreira, while Nick Russell was good on all four of his free throw attempts, including a pair that gave the Mustangs a three-point lead with 3.3 seconds remaining. “Nick Russell, he hadn’t been able to make a shot all year. But he made a big shot, two big free throws and gets a huge rebound. Kinda neat, happy for the guy.” Aggies guard J-Mychal Reese had a 3-point attempt to tie the game and send it to overtime, but the runner clanged off the backboard and fell harmlessly. Reese finished with 11 points, while Davonte Fitzgerald led A&M with 12. Brown was emphatic about the maturity of his squad. “We never came down with a big rebound (last season), make free throws. We didn’t get stops.” But his team responded with several big stops, rebounds and made free throws — six in a row — at the end of the game, when they needed it most. They were only 57.9 percent from the line for the game. “We didn’t do a lot of things pretty in the second half,” Brown said. “But we hung on and made enough plays in order to get us a win.” The Mustangs shot 40 percent from the floor, including 4 of 11 from beyond the arc. A&M had a rough night shooting, hitting just 34.7 percent and 3 of 10 from 3point land. The Aggies (6-2) built a four-point halftime lead, as Fitzgerald and Kourtney Robinson combined for half of their 30 points. But SMU came out flying to start the second. Moreira made a pair of layups and Moore hit a 3 to wrest the lead from the Aggies. Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy couldn’t wait for the television timeout and called his own at 16:32 to try to stem the tide. Reese picked it up after the timeout for A&M, scoring eight points — mostly from the line — and the score was tied at 45 at 6:49.

Imagine it’s the night before Christmas, but instead of warmth, love and happiness, you’re fleeing the only home you’ve ever known and leaving everything you have behind. Even the clothes on your back must go. Celebrating Christmas has become an afterthought; or, maybe you’ve never had a Christmas in the traditional sense and do not miss what you’ve never experienced. This is the reality that many children face in Chaves County who are members of families broken apart by domestic violence and/or substance abuse. This type of heartache does not take a break simply because it’s the holidays; in fact, it seems to become more common around Christmas, said Chaves County CASA Executive Director CarrieLeigh Cloutier. The lack of resources and family tension are often at the root of increased domestic violence around the holidays, Cloutier said. Not to mention custody battles often turn ugly right around this time of the year. The CASA program is there to help these families—especially children and youth—adversely affected by violence and abuse. One of its programs is the CASA Kids Store—a venue at an undisclosed location that’s only made available to the families served by CASA. The store allows parents and guardians to
gather Christmas presents for their children, free of charge. Although coordinated by CASA, it is members of the community who keep the store stocked and full. CASA is currently tak-
ing donations of new, unwrapped items at its offices, located at suite 310 of the Sunwest Centre Office Complex, 500 N. Main St. What is needed at the CASA store? “We ask people to look back at their childhood,” Cloutier said. “What was (your) favorite toy? Get that.” Toys for all ages are welcome, of course, as well as developmental toys that serve to teach and entertain. Also, Cloutier said there is a special need for items geared toward teens. For this age group, Cloutier suggested mp3
players, laptops, jewelry and gift cards, to name a few examples. Should potential secret Santa Clauses be in need of suggestions, they are welcome to visit any one of three giving trees that have been set up in Roswell. There is a giving tree at both First American Bank locations—111 E. Fifth St. and 3220 N. Main St. The third giving tree is located at Roswell Nissan, 2111 W. Second St. These giving trees do not have the information of any particular CASA child who will be helped through the store. But the trees do have cards with ideas for a gift. CASA will be taking donations
for the store through 5 p.m. on Dec. 17. The store will open exclusively for CASA families on Dec. 18. Organizations are welcome to contact CASA about sponsoring a family throughout the year, Cloutier said. The need that CASA meets does not end with the holiday season, and as such, donations are always accepted. CASA helps make children’s birthdays special in a pinch, and provides essential items to families caught in emergency situations, items such as diapers, space heaters, blankets and more. Such emergencies include instances when children are removed from homes where meth is made and/or consumed. In such a case, even the clothes the children are wearing must be destroyed, as they may contain traces of the drug. Cloutier has many examples of people who have been helped through CASA, not only by the items that are donated to the program but also by its staff and volunteers. She recalled children who have never received a gift, and have no idea what to do when they are handed such an item. She can also recall times when parents and other guardians are surprised with items provided through CASA. “It reminds you to be grateful,” Cloutier said. Staff members of the CASA program are also thankful of the community that allows CASA to do what it does. “The way this community gives is humbling,” she said. “I wish everyone could see the looks on the faces of these children.” For more information about CASA, call 625-0112. firstname.lastname@example.org

Christmas should be about the spiritual, not material
Q: How can we enjoy Christmas when we have to spend so much money on presents? We’re stressed over our finances all year, but it gets worse during the holidays. Jim: I understand your frustration. This is a common complaint and real challenge for many families. With Black Friday officially in the rearview mirror, hopefully these timely tips from my friend, financial guru Ron Blue, will still be helpful in making this Christmas more enjoyable and less financially stressful: — Don’t spend more than you have. When cash is short, it’s tempting to put it on the credit card and defer payment until next year. But January always shows up, and with it months of financial pain if you don’t shop wisely and exercise restraint. — Give something of lasting value. Who hasn’t bought the “perfect” gift for a child, only to find it tossed aside by the end of
JIM DALY FAMILY SYNDICATED COLUMNIST
Christmas Day? Discuss this with your kids, reinforce a long-range perspective, and explain that you want them to have gifts they’ll enjoy for a long time. — Do something meaningful for someone else. Make a family project of doing a good deed for a neighbor, a shut-in or a relative. You can fix a meal, rake leaves, clean out gutters or give a “service coupon book” that they can redeem whenever they want to. — Focus on the spiritual, not material. Find fun and creative ways to counteract the commercialism of Christmas, and find
creative ways to emphasize the spiritual significance of the day. — Build memories. Spend meaningful time together during the weeks leading up to Christmas. In the process, you’ll be doing more than stockpiling family memories — you’ll be building a legacy for generations to come. Q: How do I deal with my mother-in-law’s favoritism? Just recently, when I invited her to spend Christmas with our family, she said she “would have to let me know” after finding out what was going on with her daughter’s family. She’s always given preference to my husband’s sister and her family, and I don’t know what to do. Dr. Greg Smalley, Vice President, Family Ministries: I can empathize with your dilemma. It’s quite possible your mother -inlaw’s behavior won’t change, but that doesn’t mean you always have to dance to her tune. Sometime soon, it’s important

that your husband have a chat with his mom and dad. Simple honesty requires that they know how the two of you have been feeling. This may be tough for him, especially if he’s not comfortable confronting his parents. But it’s largely his responsibility to respectfully take this up with them. Meanwhile, you need to set some firm boundaries with his folks. When discussing future holiday plans, the two of you should say something like this: “Mom, we’d really love to spend Thanksgiving with you this year. We need to have our plans in place and confirmed by the first of September, so can you let us know by then?” If she can’t commit because she doesn’t know what her daughter will be doing, calmly say, “Just let us know by the first of September, or we’ll need to make other plans.” Then stick to your guns. If she doesn’t respond
by the deadline, go ahead and arrange something else. It’s critical that you remain unavailable and that you not back down if she acts hurt or upset. Tell her you’re sorry and that you’d love to get together with her soon. It shouldn’t take her long to get the message. If she leaves your family hanging at holiday time, she’ll simply lose out on seeing you and your kids.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR No compromise?
Dear Editor, This letter is a response to Ken Hittle’s letter (RDR 30 Oct.) The Republicans are the no compromise party, not the Democrats. John Boehner, Speaker of the House, said he detested the word compr omise. Another top Republican said that compromise was a synonym for weakness. When the Republicans asked for a "conversation" on legislation to reopen the government, a reporter asked a leading Republican if this meant they were ready to compromise. His comment was, "definitely not." Another top Republican said his concept of compr omise was to get the other side to come around to his way of thinking. What is the purpose of even trying to negotiate with people who have this mindset? Pr esident Obama did r efuse to negotiate on shutting down the government and raising the debt limit. He was absolutely right because these two things are not bargaining chips or political pawns. He had seventy-five percent of the people backing him, he stood firm, and the Republicans wer e soundly defeated, again. Mr. Hittle said that the Democrats and President Obama wanted the shutdown and that the Republicans did everything they could to avoid it. The fact is that Republicans voted for the shutdown and most of the Democrats voted against the shutdown. Then Republicans voted against legislation that would reopen the gover nment and Democrats voted to reopen the government. T ed Cruz openly and gladly took cr edit for orchestrating the shutdown. His, and Mike Lee’s only complaint was that the shutdown didn’t last long enough and that the debt limit was raised. It is not a matter of blaming the tea party for the shut down. They wanted the shutdown and gladly accepted responsibility for it. Michelle Bachman said the happiest day of her life was the day the government shut down. Mr. Hittle closed his letter with this. "Wake up America and see that the only people in Washington listening to you are the Republicans in the house of r epr esentative and about fourteen senators, like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee." Mr. Hittle seems to be a little confused about who is listening to whom. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee ar e certainly not listening to the American people, but the American people must be listening to them. The Republicans’ national favorability rating is at an all-time low,
22 per cent. T ed Cruz’s personal favorability rating is 14 percent. Randle S. Easley Roswell
Dear Editor, I would like to say Thank-You to all of the people who donated for Kinzie Aldrich. Kinzie was diagnosed with leukemia on Mar ch 3. You don’t think anything like this could ever happen to your family, and when it does, you are devastated and life as you knew it has changed. It changed the lives of Kinzie’s parents, Warren and Sarah, as well as the life of anyone involved in her life. There are so many people who have donated time, prayers, money and support for our family. Anyone who has sold a raffle ticket, washed a car, bought a pancake breakfast, or just gave cash, we are so grateful, and very blessed to have such friends and family. To the Roswell Fire Department, for your support of Warr en, I will be eter nally grateful. The carwash, that was organized by Kinzie’s classmate’s mother, was so amazingly successful, there were firefighters, teachers, parents of her classmates and complete strangers washing cars for the cause. Ther e was a pancake breakfast hosted by High Chapparal r estaurant with all proceeds going to Kinzie. Thank-you to Roswell Heating & Air for your time in fixing Warren and Sarah’s heating/cooling unit. Thank you to my fellow employees at Pioneer Bank, your concern, donations, and especially prayers warm my heart. Thank-you to Chaves County Cancer Association. Thank-you to Home Depot for your generous donation. Thankyou to Wild Horse Truck Shop for your donation. I know I can’t come close to mentioning everyone who has donated, but please know we are very grateful. If I have forgotten someone, I do apologize, because ther e ar e so many. Sometimes, we wonder what is happening to our country, why people don’t care about each other like they used to, but after our ordeal with Kinzie, my faith has been restored. People we don’t even know have donated time, money and prayers. I truly believe that all of the prayers have helped get her through the first six months of aggressive chemo treatment. She is in remission, she will have to complete her monthly maintenance treatment for the next year and a half, but she is doing well, and God willing, she will be able to go back to school after the Christmas break. P.S. I can’t forget to thank Kinzie’s nurse Von-
nie, you and Jeff are true angels. A special thanks to Annie for taking care of the baby during stays in the hospital in Albuquerque and weekly visits. Don’t know what we all would have done without you. Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Buck and Jeannie Aldrich Roswell

Dear Editor, Has anyone noticed the correlation between the flooded housing market in Roswell to the talk of opening a horse slaughterhouse? The more they talk about this, the more houses appear on the market every day. Businesses are closing, and crime is on the increase. Maybe it is just a coincidence, but I can’t see how this negative exposure is supposed to be good for our economy. Some legislators have said that there will not be money in the budget for meat inspectors for horse slaughterhouse would be a more humane way for neglected and starving horses to end their life like some kind of animal control. Well then, bring sick and starving horses to the slaughterhouse and thr ow in the poor, run down horses that have been pumped full of steroids from illegal horse racing that exists in Chaves County. Also, maybe a warning should accompany the meat stat-
ing that consuming horse meat may be hazardous to your health. Sincerely, Shirley Simon Roswell

Roswell on the map
Dear Editor: Oh, yes! The All-American city of Roswell, New Mexico - known for its UFO Museum and home of "Mine That Bird": the that put racehorse Roswell on the map by winning the Kentucky Derby. Now Roswell will be taken right off the map if it is known as the city that allows the barbaric practice of horse slaughter. Ther e ar e riding schools here and organizations that use horses for therapy in helping troubled persons. If the question is horse neglect and abuse, there ar e organizations that help: animal rights groups, U.S. Equine Rescue, The Humane Society of the U.S. and others. The starved and abused ones would not be slaughter ed; only the healthy ones, and that’s a crime. Remember: this country could not have been settled without the help of work animals and horses were used for work, transportation, mail delivery (r emember the Pony Express). Horses are beautiful, useful and intelligent animals; please don’t destroy them (and Roswell). Mary E. Guinn Roswell
Winning the battle but losing the war

resort and did not allow anyone including the media anywhere near the place. The speculation that ensued had Democrat Senator T om Udall and Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham certain they would be targets in the sights of Republican hopefuls for the 2014 elections. Well in fact, Senator Udall and Congresswoman Grisham are indeed high value targets for Republican strategists, however the story doesn’t end there. The greater Republican strategy incorporates winning and maintaining offices at the very root of government in New Mexico counties. From school board, city council, mayoral and county commission races. Democrats in red Counties with little financial support from local donors, and even less support from the State Party, are hamstrung when trying to find candidates to compete in local races. Who wants to put up big dollars only to get their butts handed to them on election day. I sympathize with them, I’ve seen it happen time and time again. When Republican Party officials at a national level with all of the PACs and hidden money target local races slowly but surely Republicans win the day not because of public support but because of the money and organizations behind their candidates. Chaves County is a perfect example. We have a single elected official on the City Council and not another official anywhere else in the county. Despite turning out an additional 6 percent of Democratic voters in 2012, we lost a veteran state senator of 36 years to a tea party candidate with barely a high school education. Already part of the local Republican boondoggle, this kid will reportedly put an excess of 2 million dollars in his pocket. Don’t believe me? Then explain this. Why would Republicans in Washington be conducting a Push Poll for a local tea party mayoral candidate when that candidates opposition is also Republican? Why is Gov. Martinez paying so much attention to this race? Republicans have placed paid operatives in local communities to orchestrate voter registration drives that only register Republicans or pay kids $14 per hour to canvass and push poll the Affordable Care Act (Obamacar e) in a negative light. They own the newspapers and local radio stations and apparently have unlimited resources to do their biding. We Democrats, by neglecting our local races and letting our share of power sift thr ough our
fingers like sand, will wake up one day living in an America void of Democracy. Fred Moran Roswell

Thrill the World thank-you
Dear Editor: I would like to thank all the volunteers, sponsors and City of Roswell for all their support in making this year’s Thrill the World Dance and Zombie Walk such a success. Without all their support, we could not have pulled this off. We were able to raise $898 for the Chaves County Cancer Fund. This volunteer organization helps families and individuals who are going through cancer treatment through support and financial assistance. If you, or someone you know, needs assistance, I encourage you to call them at 6235438. It is very easy to apply and all the funds raised stay in Chaves County. The assortment of zombies this year was amazing. I encourage you to visit us online at zombiewalkroswell.com, or on Facebook at facebook.com/thrilltheworldroswell to see all the photos and videos from the event. We are already looking forward to next year. Juliana Halvorson Organizer Thrill the World Roswell
Double the oats makes for a pleasing holiday cookie ELIZABETH KARMEL ASSOCIATED PRESS Many people would balk at the idea of eating holiday cookies for breakfast, but this recipe might make you reconsider. These double-the-oats oatmeal cookies are so jammed with oats — making them tender and wonderfully chewy and rich — that I’ve been known to take them on vacation just so I can enjoy a familiar breakfast. Because if you could enjoy your morning bowl of oatmeal in the form of a cookie, why not? The inspiration for this cookie actually began with my dislike of raisins. Most oatmeal cookies are packed with raisins, which usually turns me off. So I wanted to create my own take on this classic cookie. I started with a basic cookie dough made with creamed butter, then added twice as many oats as a traditional cookie. I also substituted dried cherries for the raisins. The result was a good cookie, but it wasn’t a great cookie. I wanted to be able to taste the individual ingredients, and I wanted a crispier texture. I was at loss until a trip to Houston unexpectedly gave me the answer. I was
visiting a friend whose mom recently had sent him a tin of her oatmeal cookies. I tried one and wanted to eat the entire batch. I loved the texture and the light, clean taste. They were crisp and toothsome, everything I was looking for. The secret? She used vegetable oil instead of butter. At first, I thought this was odd, but then I realized that a lot of my favorite cakes were made with oil, not butter. As soon as I got home, I tested my recipe with oil and I could not believe the difference. My cookies had gone from good to great and I started baking them weekly. Because I like to eat these cookies for breakfast with a cup of coffee, I bake them and keep them in the freezer so I have them on hand most of the time. I generally bake the cookies with dried cherries and pecans, which makes me equate them with eating a bowl of granola. But during the holidays, I love making them with dark chocolate chips and walnuts. The addition of the rich chocolate makes them more decadent and takes them from a breakfast cookie to a special occasion cookie.
Double-the-oats oatmeal cookies
Feel free to substitute 1 1⁄2 cups of dark chocolate chips and 1 cup of chopped walnuts for the dried cherries and pecans. Either version is delicious and perfect for a holiday — or any day — treat. Start to finish: 30 minutes Makes 3 dozen cookies 2 eggs 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 1 cup packed dark brown sugar 1 ⁄2 cup granulated sugar 1 cup vegetable oil 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted 1 teaspoon baking soda 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1 teaspoon ground cardamom 1 ⁄2 teaspoon salt 3 1⁄2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking), divided 1 1⁄3 cups dried cherries 1 generous cup pecan halves, coarsely chopped Heat the oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with kitchen parchment. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and
vanilla until frothy. Add both sugars and the oil. Mix until well blended and creamy in appearance. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cardamom and salt. Add to sugar and egg mixture and mix until completely combined. Mix in 2 cups of the oats, then the cherries and pecans. Add the remaining 1 1⁄2 cups of oats and mix well. The batter will be stiff.

DEAR ABBY: My little girl was born with a heart defect. She made it through the first heart surgery, but passed away a week later right in front of me while the doctors and nurses tried to save her. As the date of her death gets closer, I am becoming more and more depressed. How can I remember her and share my memories in a good way when all I want to do is stay in bed and cry? HEARTBROKEN MOMMY IN NORTH CAROLINA
DEAR MOMMY: I am so sorry for your loss. A way to remember your little girl and share those memories would be to contact a group called The Compassionate Friends. It’s a national self-help support organization for families grieving the death of a child and was started to help families cope with the loss of children of any age and from any cause. It sponsors a worldwide candle lighting on the second Sunday of December each year. The event is held at 7 p.m. local time and lasts for one hour. Services are also held throughout the day in hundreds of locations in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., as well as in other countries around the world. You can post a memorial message for your daughter in the online memorial book. To locate a service near you and learn more about the work this organization does and what it offers, visit www.compassionatefriends.org, or call toll-free 877-969-0010. This is a valuable resource for anyone who has lost a child. HHHHH
DEAR ABBY: I recently went on a business trip that required me to share meals with my co-workers. I became the target of criticism from them over my eating habits because I like to eat my dessert first. It doesn’t keep me from eating the rest of the meal; I just do it in a different order than most people. When the subject came up, I tried to explain that because I wasn’t allowed to do it as a child, I swore that when I was an adult, I’d eat my food in any order I wanted. But lately, it has failed to diffuse the tension. I don’t think I’m being rude. I do this only at restaurants where it’s possible to order dessert at the same time as the meal. I’d never do it when I’m a guest in someone’s home. Do you think I’m being rude? Should I eat in a more conventional way to avoid flak from people I’m dining with? SWEET TOOTH IN COLORADO DEAR SWEET TOOTH: I’m not your mother, so I’ll refrain from lecturing you about the empty calories you consume, which reduce
your appetite for the healthy food you “should” be eating at mealtime. And yes, I do think what you’re doing is rude because it is obviously making your eating companions uncomfortable, or you wouldn’t be getting flak along with your dessert. DEAR ABBY:
After 31 years of marriage, my wife and I have split up. We love each other, but after the kids moved out we realized we have little in common. What is an appropriate Christmas gift for an ex-wife? We are on friendly terms and will probably spend the holidays together with our children. I don’t want to give a gift that will offend or encourage her. FREE MAN IN PENNSYLVANIA
DEAR FREE MAN:
How about a gift card from her favorite store, or a lovely scarf or colorful shawl, or if she has a hobby, something to do with it? None of them would send the wrong message.

Gallup, Mora and Artesia sites for art, culture
SANTA FE—For the first time since 2009, the New Mexico Arts Commission authorized three new Arts & Cultural District programs. Mora, Gallup and Artesia were selected after a competitive application and review process. They join Las Vegas and Silver City, authorized in 2007, and Central Arts in Albuquerque, Los Alamos, Raton and Taos authorized in 2009. An Arts & Cultural Compound has a unique cluster of historic structures that a community wishes to preserve and conserve to protect their heritage and culture. “The ACD program is a great inter -agency collaboration to leverage state resources,” said Economic Development Cabinet Secretary Jon Barela. “We were pleased that Governor Martinez and the Legislature provided new funding to the Economic Development Department to expand the program, our rural communities in particular depend on cultural tourism to support their local economies and build a better quality of life.”
Arts and culture pump more than $3.3 billion into New Mexico’s economy and support about 60,000 jobs across our state, with a salary impact of $952 million, according to figures from the Department of Cultural Affairs. “The Arts Commission is very pleased to authorize these new Arts & Cultural Districts because of the importance of arts and culture as economic and tourism drivers in our state,” Arts Commission Chair Sherry Davis said. “Benefits for state authorized districts include a doubling of state historic tax credits to renovate buildings for eligible properties, access to Local Economic Development Act funds to rehabilitate cultural facilities and marketing and branding in larger statewide tourism campaigns.” Mora Plaza Arts & Cultural Compound - is part of the original Mora land grant. Mora has an incredible group of traditional artists, the Mora Valley Spinning Mill and Theater, the St. Vrain Mill, a Media Arts Cooperative (part of the Fiber Arts Trail), the Historic Plaza and St. Gertrude’s
Parish. Mora has a rich agrarian history represented in both the Los de Mora Local Growers Cooperative and the Sangre de Cristo Livestock Association. Artesia - has become well known for its downtown monumental bronze arts sculptures that interpret the history of the community. Its restoration of the Ocotillo Theatre for the performing arts complements the historic Land and Sun movie theater for downtown night life. The Ocotillo hosts artisan workshops and an arts training center as well as providing arts gallery space. A new state of the art library within the downtown will house the huge Peter Herd mural saved from destruction and restored by local Foundations. Accommodations include the Historic Liberty Inn boutique hotel and the first newly built downtown hotel in New Mexico in more than a century. Restaurants, coffeehouse and a brewpub provide additional amenities to the community and visitors alike. The Artesia Arts Council works hand-in-hand with the Chamber and the Greater
Artesia Economic Development Committee and Artesia MainStreet to program family and cultural events throughout the year. Gallup - has maintained its historic corridor status for arts and culture for many generations. With the Railroad (and its historic depot restored with an interpretive museum and art space) and Historic Route 66, cultural tourists have been laying over in Gallup for years. Native American arts and culture are a major focus with both Zuni Pueblo and the Navajo Nation integrated into the fabric of a very diverse cultural community represented annually by the Gallup Inter-Tribal ceremonial. Trading posts, arts galleries, cafes, coffeehouses and restaurants all contribute to a vibrant cultural economy. The historic courthouse and courthouse plaza, the El Morro Theater, the Rex and Storyteller museums all add to a dynamic center for artists and cultural entrepreneurs to thrive in. Gallup Arts, Gallup MainStreet the downtown Gallup Business Improvement District work in col-
laboration with the Chamber, Greater Gallup Economic Development Organization and the City to program arts and cultural events year round. The ACD program was established by state statute in 2007 to grow New Mexico’s Cultural Economy within a walkable district with existing cultural and arts assets to enhance and the presence of art and artists and arts galleries. Drawing cultural and heritage tourists to support artists and cultural entrepreneurs and related industry segments (arts galleries, restaurants cafes and hotels), is one major drive of the program. A second key area of economic development is in the creative industries from light manufacturing, to digital media and tech transfer to new start up creative industry companies. For more information please contact MainStreet director, Rich Williams, rich.williams@state. nm.us.

Efforts to relax US marijuana laws lose benefactor COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — With the death of Cleveland billionaire and philanthropist Peter B. Lewis, the push for relaxed U.S. marijuana laws lost its most generous supporter. That’s left supporters wondering what comes next. Lewis, chairman of Progressive Insurance, died Saturday at age 80. Since the 1980s, he had donated an estimated $40 million to $60 million to marijuana law refor m — including underwriting ballot campaigns, research, political polling and legal defense efforts. Largely through Lewis’ efforts, and those of several other billionaires, 20 states since 1996 have passed medical marijuana laws, 17 have decriminalized the drug and two have passed legalization language. Allen St. Pierre, executive director of the National Organization for the Refor m of Marijuana Laws, said organizations that relied on Lewis’ largesse will almost cer-
tainly need to build new fundraising structures if they want to carry on. Those include some 25 nonprofit groups that have grown up around the medical marijuana and marijuana legalization questions. “For this epoch, from 1995 to 2013, there’s no peer on the Earth regarding who put money up for marijuana law reform,” St. Pierre said. St. Pierre calls that a bittersweet state of affairs for the cause he shared with Lewis — the sweet being because Lewis was so reliably generous and bitter because he believes Lewis’ deep pockets made others complacent. He said polling has identified 40 million U.S. marijuana consumers among 300 million Americans, yet only perhaps 30,000 people over a decade have donated to groups like his. “Frustratingly, Peter Lewis really was the sole funder for so many entities,” he said. “Now we’re going to find out whether,
when the funder’s no longer there, is this really a movement?” Carla Lowe, founder of the California-based political action committee Citizens Against Legalizing Marijuana, said she has no doubt that proponents of relaxed drug laws will find the resources to promote their agenda. “There’s plenty of money out there. The drug money is beyond what I can begin to comprehend,” she said. “I’ve been fighting this for 37 years and I’ve seen nothing but more money, not less.” She named billionaires George Soros, George Zimmer of Men’s Warehouse and Phoenix University CEO John Sperling among those who will carry on. “On our side, we need a George Soros but we don’t have one,” she said. “It’s moms, dads and grandparents just pounding away and never giving up.” A key element of Lewis’ refor m ef forts was the
funding of $7 million provided for the American Civil Liberties Union’s drug litigation task force, St. Pierre said. That was on top of tens of millions of dollars given to the ACLU in general support. Christine Link, executive director of the ACLUOhio, said Lewis was a risk-taker who was full of ideas for meeting his goals, and he left a mark on every organization he served, whether it was his alma mater Princeton University, the Guggenheim Museum, Case Western Reserve or his insurance company. “In the old days, who’s out there arguing for marijuana are the people that wanted to light up a joint in church,” she said. “Peter believed that’s just not the way to lead on a controversial social issue. So he figured out you had to be smart about it, and present an appearance with confidence and integrity.’
S&P triple-A credit rating
AMSTERDAM (AP) — Standard & Poor’s stripped the Netherlands of its triple-A credit rating Friday, saying that the country’s growth prospects have deteriorated and it is not performing as well as peers. It downgraded the country to AA+, meaning the only remaining eurozone countries with AAA ratings from S&P are Germany, Finland and Luxembourg. The Netherlands’ finance minister, Jeroen Dijsselbloem, said the downgrade was unsurprising “but disappointing.” The Dutch economy has been hit by falling home prices and rising unemployment, which is expected to hit 8 percent next year. “The downgrade reflects our opinion that The Netherlands’ growth prospects are now weaker than we had previously anticipated, and the real GDP per capita trend growth rate is persistently lower than that of peers at similarly high levels of economic development,” S&P said in its announcement. It said it expects Dutch GDP to fall by 1.2 percent in 2013 and grow by 0.5 percent in 2014. Dijsselbloem, who is also president of the Eurogroup of finance ministers, has prescribed spending cuts and tax hikes to strengthen Dutch and other European government finances and pave the way for long-term growth. Some economists say such austerity measures are counterproductive during a downturn, but the idea is popular in German-led policy-making circles. Dijsselbloem said in an interview with RTL television that, despite the downgrade, S&P supports the Cabinet’s approach to cutting debt. But a spokesman for the agency said that’s not accurate. “We as a rating agency do not give any endorsements to policy,” said Josy Soussan. “We look at measures and assess the impact we think they will have.” The Dutch government has undertaken several rounds of budget cuts but is still expected to run deficits of a little more than 3 percent this year and next year.

Consumer behavior aggressively tracked this season
Shoppers inspect a handbag at the Macy's Herald Square flagship store, Thursday, Nov. 28, 2013, in New York.
WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s a big question for marketers: What kind of a buyer are you? And, as important, what are you willing to pay? In the search for answers this shopping season, consumer behavior online and off
is being tracked aggressively with help from advances in technology. And it can happen whether buyers are on their work computers, mobile devices or just standing in the grocery aisle. The data can be connected with other personal
information like income, ZIP code and when a person’s car insurance expires. Retailers say these techniques help customize shopping experiences and can lead to good deals for shoppers. Consumer advocates say aggressive tracking and profiling also opens the door to price discrimination, with companies charging someone more online or denying them entirely based on their home price or how often they visit a site. “You can’t have Christmas any more without big data and marketers,” said Jeff Chester, executive director at the Center for Digital Democracy. “You know that song where Santa knows when you’ve been sleeping? He knows when you’re awake? Believe me, that’s where he’s getting his information from.” Consumer tracking has long been a part of American consumerism. Retailers push shoppers to sign up for loyalty cards, register purchased items for warranty programs and note ZIP codes to feed their mailing lists. Online stores and advertising services employ browser “cookies,” the tiny bits of software code that can track a person’s movements across the Internet, to analyze shoppers and present them with relevant pop-up ads. More recently, marketers have developed increasingly sophisticated ways to combine of fline and online data that creates
detailed profiles of shoppers. They also are perfecting location-tracking technology as a means of attracting new customers and influencing shoppers as they wander through brick-and-mortar stores. A major push encourages shoppers to agree to be tracked in exchange for a good deal. Brick-and-mortar stores used to balk at customers who used smartphones to compare prices at rival stores, but retailers like Target are now pushing their own mobile apps and offering in-store Wi-Fi. The mobile apps entice shoppers with coupon deals or ads as they move throughout a store, while in-store Wi-Fi is another way to track a consumer’s online movements. To further lure buyers, major holiday retailers, including Macy’s, Best Buy and JCPenney, have partnered with the Shopkick mobile app. If shoppers turn on the app while in their store, they can be rewarded with discounts or song downloads for trying on clothes, scanning barcodes and making purchases. Another app, Snapette, blends American’s addiction to social media sites with location technology. Aimed at women keen on fashion, consumers can see what accessories or shoes are creating a buzz in their particular neighborhood, while stores get a chance to entice nearby shoppers with ads or coupons.
Americans travel to St. Augustine attraction zips over alligators Baja as crime drops SAN DIEGO (AP) — Dan Johnson hadn’t crossed the U.S.-Mexico border in years despite the fact the San Diego native lives 20 minutes away and spent most of his life making weekend runs for Baja California’s surf and fish tacos. “Everybody was scared,” Johnson said of San Diegans’ impression of their Mexican neighbor after violence spiked about eight years ago. But now Johnson, like an increasing number of Americans, is being lured back by a region that has transformed itself while fighting the drug war. Once centered on timeshares and rowdy bars largely frequented by Americans and Canadians, northern Baja California’s tourism industry is rebounding with the exploding fame of local chefs, the expansion of boutique hotels and a burgeoning art scene creating a buzz in travel magazines. This year, foreigners made up more than 45 percent of all visitors, after dropping to a low of less than 25 percent when cartels unleashed unprecedented bloodshed, leaving beheaded bodies on Tijuana’s streets. Sport fishing licenses — which are almost exclusively sought by Americans — have increased more than 75 percent during that time, according to Baja California’s tourism department. Homicides in the state fell sharply, from 1,528 in 2010 to 584 in 2012, according to the latest figures from Mexico’s National Statistics and Geography Institute. But the biggest jump in foreign tourism came after the region’s nouveau cuisine, called Baja Med, caught the attention of celebrity chefs like Anthony Bourdain and Rick Bayless, said Baja California’s former Tourism Secretary Juan Tintos, who retired Nov. 1. Baja Med combines the region’s seafood, cactus pads and chiles, with Mediterranean flavors, such as olive oil, vinaigrettes, and sun-dried tomatoes. Foodies from San Francisco to Brooklyn have followed the celebrity chefs in a deepening path to Baja’s chic restaurants, like Javier Plascencia’s Mision 19 in Tijuana that offers panoramic views of the borderlands while serving tamarind Martinis topped by whipped coconut milk. “The world of gastronomy has helped us transcend the border,” Tintos said. “It has helped people overcome their fears.”
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) — I was slowly crossing a swinging log bridge when I paused, sensing the alligator 12 feet below was staring at me. The water around the 8foot gator’s enormous body began rippling rapidly. A second later, Big Al let out a deep bellow, as if to say, “If you fall, you’re my lunch.” I was grateful to be strapped in a harness. The bridge was part of a 49-station obstacle course that includes 10 zip lines at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. It takes visitors over crocodiles, lemurs, giant tortoises, vultures and, of course, lots of alligators. “It’s just a totally different perspective. You can go to any zoo in the world and look at them through the glass, but you can’t go anywhere and look at them over the top of the enclosures like you can here,” said Scott Brown, who designed and now manages the Crocodile Crossing at the zoo. The alligator farm is fascinating enough on foot. At 120 years old, it’s one of Florida’s oldest tourist attractions and it is the only zoo in the world that displays all 23 crocodilian species, including the nearly extinct Philippine crocodile. From above, it’s even more amazing. I paused on a rope bridge to watch enormous African vultures rip apart a carcass, zipped over a lagoon with dozens
of alligators, watched lemurs scrambling around their cage below me and saw the surprised faces of the guests on the ground as I flew over their heads. And it’s a good workout. I’ve zip-lined through the Berkshire Mountains in Massachusetts and found this to be a bigger challenge. The zip lines in the mountains might be longer and faster, but the obstacles at the St. Augustine zoo make you work harder. I had to climb rope ladders, traverse a high wire and struggle to maintain balance on bridges that use swinging ladders, swinging logs and boards that are placed so far apart they sometimes require a leap instead of a step. Even with temperatures in the low 70s I worked up a good sweat. Plus, you don’t find alligators and crocodiles in the mountains of the Northeast. “It’s just almost impossible to match what they have in other parts of the country, but what we lack in distance and speed we make up for in the scenery,” Brown said. “You have to go through the obstacles to get to the zip line. The zip line is your reward for your hard work of the obstacles. There’s a reason they call it a challenge course. It is challenging.” The longest zip-line on the course is 300 feet, or the length of a football field. There are some very

fast lines, requiring some quick breaking. There’s also the occasional palm frond that har mlessly whacks your butt. I didn’t stare at the alligators and crocodiles while zipping, choosing to instead focus on the landing platform ahead of me. But I did pause often on the platforms and obstacles to look at the creatures below. The zoo spaces out the guests to ensure they aren’t rushed through the course, which takes about 90 minutes to complete. “The most amazing, awesome thing I’ve done ever,” said Ava Martin, 53, who lives just north of St. Augustine. She and her 21year -old son Corey were taking the course for the second time.
“Being over a big alligator is freaky!” Corey Martin said. “You’re not rushed to do it. While you’re doing it, you can just stop, if you like, and see everything.” That includes behindthe-scene views that other guests won’t get. “You’ll see things that the public doesn’t get to see,” said Brown. “Whether it’s other animal enclosures, animals getting moved, animals getting a vet visit, maybe getting blood drawn. And it’s always exciting for the public to see a large alligator or even a small alligator getting caught, getting taped up and getting moved. You’re always going to see something that nobody else is looking at.”
Tongue piercing allows the paralyzed drive wheelchairs
WASHINGTON (AP) — An experimental device is letting paralyzed people drive wheelchairs simply by flicking their tongue in the right direction. Key to this wireless system: Users get their tongue pierced with a magnetic stud that resembles jewelry and acts like a joystick, in hopes of offering them more mobility and independence. Researchers reported Wednesday that 11 people paralyzed from the neck down rapidly learned to use the tongue device to pilot their wheelchairs through an obstacle course full of twists and turns, and to operate a computer, too. “It’s really powerful because it’s so intuitive,” said Jason DiSanto, 39, of Atlanta, who was among the first spinal cord-injured patients to get his tongue pierced for science and try out the system. “The first time I did it, people thought I was driving for, like, years.” The team of researchers in Atlanta and Chicago put the Tongue Drive System to the test against one of the most widely used assistive technologies, called sip-and-puff, that users operate by breathing into a straw. Using the tongue, patients operated their wheelchairs a bit faster but just as accurately — and on average, they performed about three times better on video game-like computer tests, said lead researcher Maysam Ghovanloo, director of Georgia Tech’s bionics lab. The research, reported in the journal Science Translational Medicine, is an early step that allowed use of the device only inside laboratories. Larger studies in real-world conditions are required before the device ever could be sold. And the tongue piercing may be a turn-off for some potential users, the researchers acknowledge.
AP Photo This undated handout photo provided by the Shepherd Center shows Jason DiSanto, left, receiving a tongue piercing at Georgia Tech in Atlanta.
But the work is attracting attention from specialists who say there’s a big need for more assistive technologies so they can customize care for the severely disabled. “For people who have very limited ability to control a power wheelchair, there aren’t that many options,” said Dr. Brad Dicianno, a rehabilitation specialist at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center who wasn’t involved with the new research. “There is some interesting promise for this tongue control.” Here’s how the system works: A headset detects the tongue’s position when the user flicks that magnetic stud. Touch a spot on the right bottom tooth to go right, for example. The headset wirelessly beams that infor-
mation to a smartphone the user carries. An app then sends the command to move the wheelchair or the computer cursor. Why the tongue? “It’s unobstrusive, easy to use and flexible,” said Ghovanloo, a biomedical engineer who created the system and has started a company that is working with Georgia Tech to commercialize it. Most people with spinal cord injuries — or neurologic diseases that also can paralyze — still can move the tongue. It doesn’t require special concentration. The tongue is pretty tireless. And the amount of real estate the brain’s motor cortex dedicates to the tongue and mouth rivals that of the fingers and hand, offering multiple complex movements, Ghovanloo said. He led the team of
researchers from Atlanta’s Shepherd Center for spinal injuries, the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and Northwestern University. DiSanto, an electrical engineer who became paralyzed from the neck down in a 2009 diving accident, said the headset is less intrusive than the sip-and-puff device that he normally uses, which requires a straw-like tube to be worn in front of his face. More important, he said, the tongue drive gave him more control, allowing him to move diagonally, for example. As for the piercing, “there is some getting used to it,” said DiSanto, who got his in 2011. It took about a week to heal, and speaking and eating felt funny initially but he got used to the sensation. It’s not for everyone. The current study tested the device in 23 able-bodied participants and 11 paralyzed volunteers. By study’s end, all of the disabled volunteers preferred the tongue system to their regular assistive device, said co-author Joy Bruce, who heads the Shepherd Center’s spinal cord injury lab. But patients who were older or worried that a tongue stud wasn’t acceptable in their profession decided against participating. Ten other patients signed up but dropped out. One had the piercing fall out, researchers reported, while others had problems finding transportation to the study site, unrelated medical issues or lost interest. Ghovanloo plans to add functions to the smartphone app to let users turn on the TV or the lights with a flick of the tongue, too. He’s also made the device less visible — putting the headset’s sensors on a dental retainer instead. Studies begin soon to tell if that approach works without compromising users’ speech.

Same-sex couples set to legally marry in Hawaii
HONOLULU (AP) — Some samesex couples plan to get married as soon as they’re able to do so legally in Hawaii on Monday. A ceremony for six couples at the Sheraton Waikiki is one of several wedding events planned soon after 12:01 a.m., when a new law allows gay couples to marry in the state. Couples who want to get married as early as possible Monday won’t have to wait until Hawaii’s Health Department opens its doors at 8 a.m. Same-sex couples can begin applying for marriage licenses at 12:01 a.m., department spokeswoman Janice Okubo said. Okubo said the state’s marriage license application site will add options for bride and bride, groom and groom, or spouse and spouse. The licenses can then be approved by any state-certified license agent around the state, Okubo said. The agents operate around the islands, including in resorts on Maui, the Big Island and Lanai. Okubo said the agents make their own arrangements and can quickly approve licenses through the online system. Hawaii started the national gay marriage discussion in 1990 when two women applied for a marriage license, leading to a court battle and a 1993 Hawaii Supreme Court decision that said their rights to equal protection were violated by not letting them marry. The case helped prompt Congress to pass the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996, which denied federal benefits to gay couples. Part of the law was struck down earlier this year by the U.S. Supreme Court, which led Gov. Neil Abercrombie to call the spe-

cial session that produced Hawaii’s gay marriage law. An additional 14 states and the District of Columbia already allow same-sex marriage. Illinois was the 16th state to legalize it, and the law takes effect June 1. Hotels and wedding planners across Hawaii expect to benefit from an estimated $217 million tourism boost over the next three years, with same-sex couples from

other states seeking destination weddings. The Sheraton’s event shows that major hotels realize the business potential of the gay wedding market, said Honolulu Pride Chairman Michael Golojuch Jr., one of the event’s organizers. “If you don’t reach out to us, you’re turning away money,” he said. “We support companies that support us.”
He said that since the governor signed the gay marriage bill, he’s been noticing ads from the wedding industry targeting the gay community. But he has yet to see any marketing efforts from the state’s tourism authority. After the bill signing, Hawaii Tourism Authority President and CEO Mike McCartney said the agency expects gay marriage to have a positive effect on tourism.
For now, marketing efforts focus on regions and promoting the experience of a Hawaii vacation, an HTA spokeswoman said Wednesday. Holding the ceremony at the Sheraton and donating the event space is both the right thing to do and a good business move, said Kelly Sanders, area managing director for Starwood Hotels and Resorts’ four Waikiki properties, including the Sheraton. “I think, overall, marriage and weddings is a key part of what we do in Hawaii,” he said. “When you look at the GLBT market, the biggest thing is they need to know they’re welcome. Hawaii is an allinclusive destination.” The Rev. Libby Kelson-Fulcher of Big Island wedding planning company Weddings A La Heart said she’s planning a Dec. 26 beachfront wedding for a lesbian couple from Salem, Ore., and is working on booking other gay weddings for January. “I have a feeling 2014 is really going to be a busy year,” she said. “I think this law is going to be an incredible boon for Hawaii.” When Keola Akana and Ethan Wung are married at the Sheraton on Monday, it will be more than a year after their 150-guest wedding. They threw a wedding for their civil union at an east Honolulu Episcopal church in July 2012. “We didn’t get federal rights, only state rights,” he said. “We’re going to be attaining all the rights our federal government, our country, offers. It’s important that we mark this. ... We’ll celebrate anniversaries for our July wedding and our December marriage.”

Photographers find new life in ND ghost towns FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Two Fargo radio personalities who photographed the remains of western North Dakota’s pioneer towns for a coffee table book discovered a surprise when they returned for volume 2. Some of the “ghost” towns had come back to life, thanks largely to the oil boom. One of the images that T roy Larson and Terry Hinnenkamp had hoped to capture for the second volume of “Ghosts of North Dakota” was an abandoned church in Fortuna, near the borders of Montana and Saskatchewan. When they arrived, they found a recreational vehicle and semi-trailer parked in front of the building, ruling out a photo shoot. And then there’s nearby Appam, which was featured in the first edition. The pair was surprised to find about 30 recreational vehicles and trailers set up behind a shelter belt that once guarded the town. “We were shocked to see that some of the towns we photographed in 2005 or 2006 had people living there now,” Larson said. “We always said it would be a happy day when we could say one of these
“We always said it would be a happy day when we could say one of these towns turned the corner and starting coming back. We didn’t expect it to happen like this.”

towns turned the corner and starting coming back. We didn’t expect it to happen like this.” Larson knows that the rebirth is temporary and might be the makings of future ghost town photos. “If we’re still above the ground, because Lord
knows how long the boom will last out there, we fully intend to go back out there and photograph what is left,” Larson said. “It would be a very different type of ghost town. What is a man camp going to look like when nobody is left? Will there even be a man
camp?” The second edition is 88 pages and features towns such as Bantry, Barton and Bentley, along with Raleigh, Roseville and Roth. Larson’s favorite photographs are one he took of a house in Sims, which is featured on the cover, and
one by Hinnenkamp of a one-room schoolhouse in Clear Lake Township that is surrounded by rings of crops on a foggy morning. “There was no way we could have known there was going to be a crop circle around the school house or it was going to be
all foggy and misty when we showed up there,” Larson said. “It seemed like the shot was just presenting itself to us when we got there.” The first book has sold about 3,000 copies, Larson said, and the pair had to back-order more books to meet demand. That allowed them to finance the second volume, which is available on the group’s website at GhostsofNorthDakota.com. “Being able to do one book was more than he hoped for, to be honest,” Larson said. “We’re poor radio guys and never had the money to do a book. We were pleasantly surprised that we were successful and it all worked out.”
