SANTA FE (AP) — A Las businessman Cruces entangled in an alleged pay-to-play scheme for judicial appointments has contributed more than $50,000 to former Democratic Gov. Bill Richardson and played a role in Richardson hiring a state investment officer who’s been implicated in a separate public corruption scandal. Edgar Lopez, who runs a real estate investment business called IMA Inc., is portrayed by gover nment investigators as a political
power broker who helped secure appointments by Richardson for those wanting to serve on Doña Ana County courts. District Judge Michael Murphy of Las Cruces pleaded not guilty on Friday to felony bribery charges in the ongoing judicial pay-to-play investigation. According to a report by prosecution investigators, Murphy told a Las Cruces lawyer that she needed to make weekly payments in the form of campaign contributions — and deliver

Game&Fish: To keep bears away, put your food away JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER
New Mexico Game and Fish supervisor Leon Redman has advice for citizens about dealing with bears. Bears in this area are unusual. He attributed their appearance in Roswell to the dry conditions. “We haven’t seen a bear in Roswell in 20 years,” said Redman. With continued dry weather, other bears may be driven from their normal forest habitat to the prairie in their search for food. He said their arrival was probably caused by a combination of factors, including fires that drive away prey and deprive them of vegetation that forms the
bulk of the black bear’s normal diet. Game and Fish advise people to keep trash in closed, sturdy cans. Store cans inside in a garage or shed if possible until the day of pick-up. Fill bird feeders with only enough food to last a day. Take down bird feeders, including hummingbird feeders, during the night and bring them inside. Feed pets inside. Store pet food inside the garage and close the garage doors during the night. Never put sweet-smelling foods, such as melon rinds, into compost heaps. Clean grills after use and store them inside.

Yemeni leader says he’ll step down SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Under pressure from protesters and regional allies, Yemen’s president said Saturday he will sign a deal to step down after 32 years in power. Still, he condemned the proposal as “a coup” and war ned the U.S. and Europe that his departure will open the door for alQaida to seize control of the fragile nation on the edge of Arabia. The mixed signals from Yemen’s embattled president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, followed two earlier promises by him to sign the proposal. Both times he backed away at the last minute, adding to the opposition’s deep mistrust of a leader known for the adept political
maneuvering that has kept him in power for decades. In a sign that he may be ready to sign this time, the coalition of opposition political parties involved in the talks with Gulf Arab mediators was persuaded to sign the deal on Saturday, a day ahead of Saleh, based on what it said were guarantees that the president would follow through. The proposal, mediated by a six-nation regional bloc called the Gulf Cooperation Council, grants him immunity from prosecution if he leaves office within 30 days. It is far from certain, however, whether it would satisfy all of the many different groups protesting his rule
in the streets. Saleh has managed to cling to power in the face of near daily protests by hundreds of thousands of Yemenis fed up with corruption and poverty. Like other anti-gover nment movements sweeping the Arab world, they took inspiration from the popular uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt. The president has swung between offering concessions, taking them back and executing a violent crackdown that has killed more than 150 people, according to the opposition, which says it compiled the tally from lists of the dead at hospitals around the nation.

Young to compete for Miss NM crown, June 19 JONATHAN ENTZMINGER RECORD STAFF WRITER
T racey Young, 21, is slated to compete for the 2011 Miss America title, pending a win at the Miss New Mexico pageant in June at Ruidoso’s Spencer Theater. Young, who won the title of Miss Chaves County in January, will compete with Miss Roswell, Deanna Jerge, against 19 other women, ages 17 to 24. She also has previous pageant experience, which is working in her and Jerge’s favor. “I help Deanna out. This is her first time doing pageants. I told her ‘don’t get a big fluffy dress, you’ll look like a Barbie.’ We’re going to be roommates also,” she said. Young will stay with a host family in Ruidoso during the competition, which is sponsored by Wrangler jeans. She will have an advocate at the pageant in Jerge, which will come in handy if any “pageant mom” drama
ensues. Young spoke about meeting the pageant moms of her counterparts. “In April, we met them when we went to our workshops. Their moms were there, pageant moms, it was weird,” Young laughed. She said dealing with the competition on a social level may be the most challenging part of the experience. “Some of them are really uptight and others aren’t so uptight. I just want to do it for myself and not have to worry about anybody else,” Young said. To prepare for the competition, Young will focus a lot of her attention on her talent portion, dance, in addition to health and fitness. She said she has already started a few new habits, such as drinking water instead of soda. “I’ve lost weight and water helps me concentrate better,” Young said. She is also taking a steady approach to her preparation. “I practice at Miss Min-
nie’s. I go over my dance over, and over, and over, because it’s really hard,” she said. “I call Miss Minnie to watch it, then she critiques it. Once (the competition) gets closer, I’ll practice again with high heels. “It’s a good workout, because if you’re doing on point like I am, you have to pull up, use every muscle in your body, and concentrate really hard,” she said. Young’s platform for the competition will focus on raising awareness on Locks of Love, an organization that collects undamaged, healthy hair for people suffering from hair loss because of terminal conditions. Already, Young has raised dollars for her platform and other initiatives. She held a bowl-a-thon, where several Main Street businesses made donations. She said she was inspired to raise awareness through her platform after learning the fate of a friend, who was diagnosed
with leukemia. “I’m going to school for cosmetology. When one of my ballet friends got diagnosed with leukemia, she lost all of her hair. I said, ‘I want to do something for kids like that,’” Young said. “I donated a braid of hair to Locks of Love ... back in March.” The former high school and collegiate track star and high jumper also has a plan to leap over the drama that comes with being a pageant competitor: headphones. Young has her own contemporary playlist of mainstream and pop music, including alternative and rock tunes and teen sensation, Justin Bieber. The Miss America pageants have the potential to launch careers and opportunities for its participants. Young said she is not entertaining those possibilities at the moment. “I’m focused on the pageant now, and if a ‘what if’ happens, then it happens,” she said. Young has advice for those seeking to enter the
Of ficials say previous sampling at Cheyenne II detected nitrate levels of 21 mg/l, double the New Mexico groundwater quality standards, which is 10 parts per million for nitrate; chloride levels of 280 mg/l, which exceeds the state standard of 250 mg/l; and that TDS levels were five times higher than state standards allow (5,300 mg/l of TDS, when the state standard is 1,000). Sampling at Wild West Farms also detected three times the recommended amount of nitrate (30 mg/l), double the amount of chloride (580 mg/l) and nine times the amount of TDS (9,700 mg/l). New Mexico’s Water Quality Control Commis-
sion’s regulations require responsible parties to remediate groundwater pollution. Ray Montes, of the NMED Ground Water Quality Bureau, says the department originally mandated Hoekstra to submit stage one abatement plans for Cheyenne II last September and for Wild West Far ms in September of 2008. Both plans were granted time extensions, and NMED received proposals from Wild West Farms on April 22, and from Cheyenne II on March 21 of this year, Montes said. Phone calls to Hoekstra’s residence on Thursday afternoon went unreturned, but NMED geoscientist Sara Arthur says ground-

pageant circuit. “I would tell them to start practicing in high heels as soon as possible. Wear high heels, start thinking of a platform that you’re passionate about,” she said. Throughout her journey, Young has had the help of her pageant coordinator, Renee Roach, and other members of the community.
Young said that her presence in the community has helped raise awareness about different initiatives. She believes that her public appearances yield positive results. “It helps because if somebody sees Deanna or me they’ll say, ‘Ooh what’s going on in here’ and maybe they’ll walk in. We help the community.”

Dairies, David Hoekstra, submitted abatement plans in March and April after previous samples of soil and groundwater detected maximum concentrations of nitrate, chloride and total dissolved solids, double or triple the amount set by state quality standards, according to a NMED press release. The Stage 1 Abatement Plans proposals, which define the extent of soil and groundwater pollution at a contaminated site, suggest collecting more soil and groundwater samples, installing additional monitoring wells and sampling supply wells near the two dairies, situated just a few miles apart on East Calusa and East Anasazi roads, the statement read.

the pollution that was identified in Stage 1. The public will have an opportunity to comment on the Stage 2 Plan and may also request a hearing. The department will seek public comment within 90 days of receiving the plan. Montes noted that high nitrate levels is a common problem for dairies because cow manure contains high amounts of nitrogen, which can oxidize and turn into nitrate. Ground Water Quality Bureau records show groundwater contamination for 65 percent of the dairies in the state. Montes also added it was the first time the state required either of the two dairies to submit abatement plans.

Montes says the source of the contamination on both dairies is unknown at this point in the investigation, and that the NMED will likely approve or disapprove the stage one abatement plans by the end of June. Once Stage 1 is complete, Hoekstra will have to submit a Stage 2 Abatement Plan for each dairy, specifying how to clean up

The bloodshed triggered a wave of defections by ruling party members, lawmakers, Cabinet ministers and senior diplomats. Saleh’s own tribe has joined those demanding his ouster.

Gill was also pleased to announce that of the 17 graduates, 15 are collegebound, and 12 were offered scholarships. Collectively, the students won $443,146 in scholarship money. “They did really good,” Gill said. Some of the students will be attending Christian colleges in the fall, like Lubbock Christian

Food items, pet and human, garbage and fragrant items, should be suspended 10 feet off the ground and four feet from the trunk of the tree. Hikers should travel in groups and watch for cubs.

It doesn’t work with black
bears. Do not run. Bears can achieve speeds of up to 30 mph; they can climb trees and they will follow people into the water. Instead back away slowly. Some recommend making loud noises, clapping or shouting. One thing Redman does not recommend is shooting at the bear. It is illegal.

Saleh has been able to survive thanks to the loyalty of Yemen’s most highly trained and best-equipped military units, which are led by close family members. That has raised concerns the political crisis could turn into an armed clash between the rival military forces if a deal is further delayed. Seeking to win some support in the West for his continued rule, Saleh has warned several times that without him, al-Qaida would take control of the country.
Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula has an estimated 300 fighters in Yemen and has been behind several nearly successful attacks on U.S. targets, including one in which they got a would-be suicide bomber on board a Detroit-bound flight in December 2009.

to possible corruption by government investigators and lawsuits. Lopez, his wife and their business ventures contributed at least $54,700 to Richardson political campaigns from 2002 through 2007, according to state and federal campaign finance reports. Of that, $10,000 went to Richardson a month after Murphy was appointed to a vacant judgeship in June 2006. The Lopez’s also handed out at least $33,000 in contributions to candidates for the Legislature, other statewide offices and the state Democratic Party from 2002 through 2009. Shortly after Richardson’s election in 2002, Lopez was named to a transition team and search committee that recommended the hiring of Gary Bland as state investment officer. Lopez later landed an appointment as a member of the state’s Border Authority, which has broad powers for economic development in areas near Las Cruces and southern New Mexico along the international border with Mexico.

The lawsuit contends that more than a $1 billion in state investment business was steered to politically connected individuals. Correra’s son shared in $22 million in fees as a third-party placement agent on New Mexico investments. Bland, who resigned as investment officer in 2009, has denied any wrongdoing and calls the lawsuit’s allegations “absurd.” Separately, the U.S. Attor ney’s Office and the Securities and Exchange Commission have been investigating state investment deals but no charges have been filed. Lopez is a longtime Demactivist and ocratic fundraiser in the Las Cruces area, according to state Rep. Andy Nunez of Hatch, who switched earlier this year from Democrat to independent. “He was the main guy for Richardson down here in this area,” Nunez said in a telephone interview. “I do know that he was a mover and shaker, especially with Richardson’s group.” Lopez told the Albuquerque Journal in 2005 that his real estate investment company had developed a market niche by buying retail shopping centers that share parking lots with Super Walmart stores, which help draw customers to the strip mall tenants. although she is excited to attend California Baptist University in the fall, she will miss her group of friends. “It’s like we’re a family,” she said. “Some I’ve been with for 12 years so we’ve definitely grown pretty close.” The graduation also marked Tim Fuller’s first year as superintendent of the academy. “These seniors are a good group to start with because they’re a great

In the unfolding judicial bribery scandal, the investigator’s report describes Lopez as a close friend of the Richardson who would hand deliver “envelopes” of money to the two-ter m Democratic governor. Lopez told investigators that one local lawyer didn’t get an appointment because he “did not pay Edgar homage” and that “he had gained the appointments for all the district court judges and worked with them as well.” However, Lopez also told investigators “there has been talk that he is the person that gets the judges appointed and that is just not the case.” In New Mexico, the governor appoints district court and other judges from candidates recommended by a bipartisan nominating commission, which is made up of judges, lawyers and members of the public who are not lawyers.

Hard choices for U.S. on Taiwan arms sales PETER ENAV ASSOCIATED PRESS
TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — Repeated requests from Taiwan’s president for new American fighter jets are putting the Obama administration in a bind, pressuring it to choose between providing advanced weaponry to the democratic island and nurturing its important relationship with China. President Ma Ying-jeou’s latest plea for 66 F-16 C/Ds, made in a videoconference with a Washington think tank last week, likened procurement of the warplanes to a confidence booster for Taiwan, allowing it to negotiate further with Beijing in one of Asia’s perennial flash points. The plea is a reminder that Beijing’s growing power and influence is raising the costs of Washington’s involvement in the decades-long feud between Taiwan and China. While the U.S. has committed
itself to providing Taiwan the means to defend against a Chinese attack — something the mainland has threatened if the island moves to make its de facto independence permanent — it knows that doing so would undermine its ability to improve ties with China and to secure Chinese help on pressing issues such as North Korean nuclear proliferation. China sees the F-16 issue “as an opportunity to pressure America into downgrading the U.S. commitment to Taiwan,” said Rupert Hammond-Chambers, head of a U.S.-Taiwan business group whose members include arms manufacturers. “If they can pressure America into saying no or not saying yes, U.S. policy will have taken a big step toward China’s position on arms sales.” For the time being, the Obama administration is addressing the Taiwan defense dilemma by deciding not to decide. Mindful of Beijing’s incensed reaction to its
Roswell Daily Record
early 2010 approval of a $6.4 billion Taiwan arms package, it has shown no interest in a reprise. Ma’s government also has sent mixed signals about its willingness to bolster Taiwan’s defenses, saying that the island can ill afford an arms race with an increasingly deep-pocketed Beijing. Just this month the Defense Ministry acknowledged it was delaying procurement of two U.S. weapons systems, because of what a lawmaker from Ma’s party said was a budget shortfall. The delays and mixed signals are a balm to Beijing, which is taking over the pivotal position in the Taiwan-China-U.S. relationship, one of the keys to maintaining stability in the western Pacific. Ma has made economic engagement with Beijing a cornerstone of his administration, and that has reduced tensions across the 100mile-wide Taiwan Strait to perhaps their lowest since the sides split amid civil war six decades ago.
Some American power brokers say that Ma’s success in lowering tensions gives Washington an opportunity to cast Taiwan adrift. Military relations are already much diminished from the 1960s and early 1970s, when Taiwan was a key American ally, hosting a string of U.S. air force bases and providing sensitive intelligence on China. Washington’s decision to transfer recognition from Taipei to Beijing as the legitimate government of China in 1979 changed that almost overnight. The U.S. maintains military ties with Taiwan, including cooperation on terror-related issues and the widely reported presence of a National Security Agency communications facility on the island. Taiwan says it needs the F-16 C/Ds to arrest the island’s declining aerial might in the face of a sustained Chinese military buildup. It has submitted at least three formal applications for the war-
planes, to no avail. It has also asked for an upgrade of its rapidly aging fleet of 146 F-16 A/Bs. A senior Taiwanese legislative aide privy to negotiations on the F-16s says that despite support from the Pentagon, opposition to the sale of the advanced F-16s is coming from the State Department, which remains concerned that it would anger China. However, the aide said, Washington and Taipei are negotiating over the upgrades, and that could go through if agreement is reached on issues such as the sophistication of the weapons package. Taiwan hopes the U.S. will drop restrictions that limit the air-toland attack capabilities of the planes’ mission computer, the aide said, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the information. A spokesman at the de facto American embassy in Taipei declined to comment on the F-16 talks.
In the 1983 comedy “Trading Places,” the main characters destroy the stability of the orange commodities market over a $1 bet. In a case of life imitating art, today’s oil market isn’t far from the fantasy of that movie. While we American gas guzzlers received a relative reprieve last week as prices fell below $4 for a gallon of gas, today’s oil market is driven more by speculators than by the actual push and pull between producers and consumers that is the very basis of the free market. The good news for those of us feeling lighter in the wallet after our daily commutes is that there is a relatively simple solution to the problem. The bad news is that most of our politicians would rather fight straw men than solve actual problems. The natural reaction of Washington politicians when gas prices rise is to blame the president or blame the oil companies. Both make easy targets. Wrong, wrong, wrong. The real culprit is Wall Street. That was the case in 2008, when the price of gas topped $4 in the U.S. for the first time. And it’s the case again today. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., has it right. She and 15 other senators, including Republican Susan Collins of Maine, wrote a letter to the Commodities Futures Trade Commission asking that the federal agency do its job. The trade commission exists to help bring stability to the commodities markets. But since the early part of the last decade, when the federal government quietly allowed the nation’s biggest banks, like Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, to begin selling financial products that were, in effect, gambles that the price of oil would continue to rise, the market has skewed away from stability. Today, speculators control about 70 percent of the market, whereas for most of the last century that number was 30 percent or less. So while supply and demand haven’t fundamentally changed in the past year, the price of a gallon of gasoline has skyrocketed, and then dropped, and spiked again. The reason is pure, unadulterated gambling by Wall Street financiers. Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson made that clear last week when he stated in a hearing that if not for the speculators, the price of a barrel of oil today would be between $60 and $70, not the $98 it was at the time. For consumers, that means we’d be paying closer to $2.50 per gallon. Senators have asked the Commodities Futures Trade Commission to act to reduce the excessive speculation in the market. In layman’s terms, the gamblers would be forced to “ante up” or put a meaningful down payment on their bets, rather than effectively signing a slip with their bookie. Providing stability to the oil commodities market that helps consumers would be the one thing that could immediately bring some relief at the pump. “This is a no-lose proposition,” University of Maryland law professor Michael Greenberger, a former director of the CFTC’s trading division, told us. “The only thing you’re stopping is gambling.” Guest Editorial The St. Louis Post-Dispatch DEAR DR.

It can be the result of prolonged use of high doses of glucocorticosteroids, such as prednisone, or from a malfunction of the body’s natural production. This can be the result of pituitary adenomas (up to 70 percent of cases, known as Cushing’s disease), ectopic ACTH (adrenocorticotropic hormone) syndrome (ACTH-secreting tumors or cancer outside the pituitary), and rarely can be caused by adrenal tumors or inherited.

A letter from a father to a graduating daughter Roswell Daily Record
Dear Kelsey Brynn — One of the toughest things a parent does is to say goodbye to one of his children. It is always so hard to give you that final hug and then to drive away leaving you behind. It makes my heart hurt. Mom and I thoroughly enjoyed our time together last weekend and being able to celebrate your graduation, but the parting is always so difficult. We are so proud of your most recent accomplishment. To see you walk across the stage in a cap and gown and to be handed a diploma is an emotional experience for the two of us. You have worked very hard these past four years at Baylor University to earn your bachelor of science in education health science studies degree. To graduate summa cum laude with a 3.95 GPA is remarkable. You have sacrificed greatly and worked hard day after day, week after week to be able to finish near the top of your class. The many times when others partied and you studied are represented by these Latin words that appear with your degree. Graduating from any program takes time and effort. It takes discipline. It takes drive and motivation. The journey is often long, but at the end of the journey comes a celebration. This is a time of celebration. And Mom and I can never celebrate enough with you. The day you were born we

prayed many prayers over you. We prayed that you would be healthy and that you would be able to live a full life to old age. We prayed that you would accept Christ into your heart and receive the gift of eternal life. We prayed that you would make good decisions in the years you have and that you would be blessed by the decisions that you make. We prayed that you would find God’s man for you to marry and settle down with and have your family. You are a different young lady today than you were when you left home four years ago. You have grown and matured and you’ve shown that you can make good decisions and manage your world without Mom and Dad looking over your shoulder. Every parent wants their children to go further in their lives and to have a better life than they have. Mom and I fall into the “every parent” category. So now you have completed another chapter of your life. For the rest of your life, wherever it
That is, or ought to be considered, disgusting. But for much of the bloated federal government, it is increasingly the norm. Two senators have promised an “investigation.” Don’t look for anything serious to be done. It never is. Politicians and bureaucrats protect their turf. Wrists might be slapped. Someone near — but not at — the top might even be replaced. There could be promises of “refor m,” but in the end, HUD will remain to misspend another day, along with so many other agencies and programs that waste our money. What is needed is a top-to-bottom review of government, beginning with a serious discussion about its purpose and the responsibility of individuals to do more for themselves. For people not addicted to TV reality shows and the baser things in life, the Founders of our country warned of what would happen if we got into too much debt. They have something to say to us across the years if we will pay attention. Possibly the most profound remonstrance concerning debt came from Thomas Jefferson, who said, “I place economy among the first and most important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers to be feared. To preserve our independence, we must not

I am confident you will do great in your next commitment. Mom and I are also proud of your giving to others. Your many summers at Kanakuk Kamp in Branson, Mo., as a counselor to elementary girls shows your commitment to growing others by pouring yourself into the young lives you have touched and continue to touch. As you move forward on your journey, I ponder what words of wisdom I can share with you. I have walked this planet for 30 more years than you and I am at a different chapter of my life, now spending more time looking back at the journey I have walked. All of these years of school have been about equipping you to make a difference in your life ahead. You now have the world at your fingertips. The most important decision that lies ahead for you is your choice of a husband and father for your children. I cannot emphasize enough how important this decision is. It will affect and impact your life each day and this single decision will determine the quality of your life for the rest of your life. This young man will influence you in countless decisions and will parent children who will be the
let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and in our comforts, in our labor and in our amusements. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy.” Has this no meaning in 2011? Of course it does. Wisdom is not bound by centuries, but people must act on wisdom before it can work its magic. Manipulating federal retirement investments is not a serious response to having reached the debt ceiling. Calling a “contractor” to lower the ceiling by reducing debt would be serious. Are there enough serious people to do the necessary budget-cutting work in Washington? Commenting on the debt ceiling having been reached, Sen. Marco Rubio, RFla., said it “further highlights the failed leadership and reckless spending that has our country heading toward a Greece-like day of reckoning. We are better than that.” Are we?

I consciously chose not to return after graduation to a large metropolitan area, but to settle in a smaller community. There is no question but that I made the right decision for me. You need to make the right decision for you. Of course, Mom and I wouldn’t be upset if you choose to return back home after all of your schooling is done. You will be making decisions regarding who your friends are. You have made good choices in college and I trust that you will continue to make good choices in the days and years ahead. Choosing friends who are a poor influence would tempt you to make poor decisions. Recognize that you have been richly blessed. Recognize that with blessings comes the responsibility to bless others. Our lives are not to be about being reservoirs and stock piling, but about receiving and then giving.

Europe: Obama tends to old allies, new challenges
WASHINGTON (AP) — Weaving together strands of pomp, policy and summitry, President Barack Obama’s weeklong European tour is all about tending to old friends in the Western alliance and securing their help with daunting challenges, from the political upheaval in the Mideast and North Africa to the protracted war in Afghanistan. Obama’s eighth trip to Europe as president, with a quick-moving itinerary that dips into four countries in six days, unfolds against the backdrop of the NATOled bombing campaign in Libya and stubborn economic weakness on both sides of the Atlantic. A priority for the president and his allies will be to more clearly define the West’s role in promoting stability and democracy in the Arab world without being overly meddlesome and within tight financial limitations. Obama, who departs late today, will visit Ireland, England, France and Poland. Each is weathering an economic downturn that has forced European nations to adopt strict austerity measures. The U.S. has pushed its national debt to the limit, and Obama and congressional
Republicans are in contentious talks about how steeply to cut spending. But never mind all that, at least for a moment. A highlight of Obama’s opening stop in Ireland will be a feel-good pilgrimage to the hamlet of Moneygall, where America’s first black president will explore his Irish — yes, Irish — roots, and most likely raise a pint. It tur ns out that Falmouth Kearney, who immigrated to the United States in 1850 at the age of 19, is the great-great-greatgrandfather of Obama on his white, Kansas-bor n mother’s side. Obama, whose father was born in Kenya, will connect in Moneygall with distant relatives from the Irish branch of his family tree. Michael Collins, the Irish ambassador to the United States, says the president’s visit will be “a golden moment” for a country that’s been on the economic ropes after its boom time. The visit is sure to play well at home for Obama — make that O’bama — as he heads into reelection season after being pushed to great lengths simply to prove he was born on U.S. soil. After his day in Ireland, Obama spends two in Eng-
land, where he and first lady Michelle Obama will be treated to all the pomp and pageantry that the monarchy can muster for the president’s first European state visit. The Obamas even get a Buckingham Palace sleepover. Though the United States and Britain remain the closest of allies, the relationship has been strained by recent events, including last year’s oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico triggered by the explosion of an oil rig owned by British-based BP. Britain’s unilateral announcement of a timetable for withdrawal of its 10,000 troops from Afghanistan also rankled the United States. Heather Conley, director of the Europe program at the private Center for Strategic and International Studies, said Obama’s stop in Britain could help “put the ‘special’ back into the U.S.-U.K. special relationship.” Obama on Wednesday will become the first American president to speak to members of Parliament from the historic Palace of Westminster. European leaders are eager to see how president frames the U.S.-European partnership at a time when Obama has prodded Western allies to
Roswell Daily Record
shoulder greater responsibility in areas such as Afghanistan and Libya. A NATO-led mission is working to protect civilians and assist the rebel fighters trying to oust Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi. Former Liberal Democrat leader Menzies Campbell, a member of the House of Commons foreign affairs committee, said British politicians would be listening keenly to what Obama had to say about Afghanistan when he addresses both houses of Parliament on Wednesday. “The death of Osama bin Laden can only encourage those with the ear of the president to proceed more quickly with the draw-down of American forces in Afghanistan,” Campbell said. “MPs and peers alike will be listening closely to what he says about America’s intentions for Afghanistan.” In private, Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron will plunge into the details of a host of international challenges on which the U.S. and Britain have worked together: Afghanistan, Libya, counterterrorism, the global economy and more. Both leaders then scoot to a French summit of the Group of Eight industrialized nations, where the president hopes to build on momentum from his speech days ago about how best to promote stability and democracy in the Middle East. Obama has called on the World Bank and Inter national Monetary Fund to present the G-8 with an ambitious plan to help Egypt and Tunisia, in particular, recover from the disruptions caused by their democratic revolutions and prepare for elections later
this year. The U.S. and its allies don’t want those elections to occur against a backdrop of economic chaos that could increase support for extremists. But there’s no expectation of a big aid measure emerging from the G-8. Rather, the countries in the region will present their plans for democratization and stabilizing their economies, and the G-8 will consider ways to help. Although not on the official agenda, the G-8 leaders are sure to be talking about future leadership of the IMF now that former chief Dominique StraussKahn has resigned after being arrested on attempted rape charges in New York. European leaders are anxious to put another European in that position while emerging economies would like to see a process that is open to someone from the developing world. U.S. officials have said they favor an open process, without being more specific. Obama’s visit to Europe comes a little more than a month before the U.S. is scheduled to start its gradual troop withdrawal in Afghanistan. The president has said the initial drawdown will be significant, but it’s unclear how many specific answers he’ll have for European leaders. Britain and France, in particular, are looking for details on the U.S. withdrawal timetable for signs of how NATO will move from combat missions to a training role by the end of 2014. The Afghan mission is deeply unpopular in many European countries, and political pressure has led some leaders to set timetables for their withdrawal.
The British are planning to draw down 400 of their nearly 10,000 troops this year, with all British troops out by the end of 2014. France, which has 4,000 troops in Afghanistan, has said it is considering speeding up its withdrawal now that al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden is dead. During his two-day stay in Deauville, France, Obama will take time for one-on-one meetings on the side of the G-8 with several world leaders, including Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan. The U.S.-Russia relationship, though much improved since the Bush administration, remains complex. Medvedev has spoken out strongly in recent weeks against U.S. plans to plant missile interceptors in Romania as part of a U.S. shield over Europe, saying that could threaten Russia. He’s warned that Washington’s failure to cooperate with Russia on the missile shield could lead to a new arms race, and also threatened to pull out of the New STAR T nuclear treaty with the U.S. if Russia feels at risk. Obama’s meeting with Kan would be his first with the Japanese prime minister since the March tsunami and earthquake that triggered a nuclear crisis in Japan. Obama’s visit to Poland is emblematic of a growing front in the administration’s engagement in Europe, as the U.S. expands its economic and security relationship with Central European nations. Obama can point to Poland, with its stable government and growing economy, as a benefactor of democracy’s virtues.

Roswell Daily Record
Sign up for Alien City Girls Fastpitch! A newly created girls fastpitch softball league, the Alien City Girlsâ€™ Fastpitch, is being formed under the auspices of the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA). The primary reason for the creation of this league is to give girls an opportunity to continue playing softball during the summer months, giving them some wonderful physical activity and helping to keep them healthy and active. There are several programs available to Roswellâ€™s youth during the summer and this is certainly one of those. The league is planning to have the following age divisions: 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12 and 13-14. These divisions are also referred to as 6U, 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U. A player's age is determined as of Jan. 1, 2011. For example: if a player turns 9 years old on May 17, she would still qualify to play in the 8U division since she was 8 years old on Jan. 1. Registrations are being taken through May 30. Just call Juan Oropesa at 575-626-7802. It is intended that the startup will be June 20, and that the program will run through August. However, the length of the season could

be determined by the number of teams that are formed. Registration fee per player is $30. Players will not be asked to go through a draft and coaches are allowed to recruit up to 12 players. If there are more than 12 players per team in a division, they will be placed in a team by the draw from a hat. An effort will be made to work with parents as much as possible if they have special circumstances such as needing to have players placed in the same team. Additionally, the league needs some individuals who would like to coach. Mentoring of new coaches will be available. If you might be interested in sponsoring a team, the fee is scheduled to be $150.
On a new subject, I want to remind all drivers of the ever-present risk of hitting deer and antelope (and perhaps other animals) especially at night out on the highways. I learned the hard way about a week ago that they are certainly out there. A beautiful young doe just suddenly appeared, I hit her, and the next thing I knew, I was spinning down US 285â€™s grassy right-of-way trying to slow from 70 mph, and praying I would not roll over. I did not, thank the Lord. Thatâ€™s it. You must be careful and always aware that animals are a continual danger! This weekâ€™s Roswell SAFE Coalition Safety Column is brought to you by

Should you apply pruning sealer to severed tree limbs? Q. I have a Lemon Rose bush in the garden of my historic house in Silver City and the bush is perhaps as old as the house (1877). One stalk appears to be going bad. It has stunted leaves, they are yellow, and the blooms are tiny. I snapped off all the buds and wonder if I should cut the entire stalk off and apply pruning sealer to the severed limb? The branch is large, about one and one half inches in diameter. The rest of the bush appears OK, except I do notice several yellow leaf clusters. Recently a neighbor erected a wooden fence that may decrease the amount of sunlight, but I cannot see how that would be a factor since there was a large tree in the yard until the wind blew it over. That was several years ago. A. I searched the internet and discovered several roses called â€œlemon rose,â€? so I am not certain I know which rose you are discussing. However, a rose as old as you mentioned is not a modern hybrid tea rose. Such â€œoldfashionedâ€? roses are often hardier than most modern roses. They can live a long time, but their old canes (stems) die and are replaced by new canes that form from the base (crown) of the rose shrub. This may just be an old cane that is declining and should be replaced by a new cane. Watch for new growth sprouting from at or near the ground level. This winterâ€™s cold may have contributed to the decline of this cane. I assume there are other, more vigorous canes that will remain and feed the growth of any new canes. Cutting the old cane near the ground can stimulate growth of new canes. However, they sometimes form without this inducement. The past winter may have damaged other canes as well (the yellow leaf clusters
that you mentioned). Pruning paint is not needed following pruning, but rose growers often cover the freshly cut end of a rose cane with some casein glue (white glue or carpenters glue) to seal it and keep carpenter bees from mining the pith in the center of the fresh cut. The carpenter bee, if it mines the pith, can cause the cane to die back.
Pruning as usually done for hybrid roses is not needed or desired for most old-fashioned roses. However, removal of the old, declining canes is good. Adequate water and some (not much) fertilization in the early growing season should help this rose recover from the stress of a hard winter. A mulch (wood chips) over the roots in the summer will help retain moisture and protect the roots from the heat in New Mexico.

BAL TIMORE (AP) — Shackleford was sweating profusely, bucking and kicking until six crewmen finally shoved him into the No. 5 gate at the Preakness. One ton of horseflesh all but screamed, “Get me out of here.” Less than two minutes after the gate sprang open, the nervous colt was a cool, classic winner. Shackleford held of f a late charge by the 2-1 favorite Animal Kingdom, spoiling yet another Triple Crown try and beating the Kentucky Derby winner by a half-length Saturday at Pimlico. The chestnut colt, who led into the stretch in the Derby two weeks ago, finished the job at 12-1 odds, covering the 1 3-16 miles in 1:56.47. With jockey Jesus Castanon aboard, Shackleford battled Flashpoint for the lead until midway on the final turn and then dug in to hold off the onrushing Animal Kingdom before 107,398 fans. “He was a little hot in the beginning, but he was able to calm down,” Castanon said. “He’s a good horse and able to handle it.” It was the first victory in a T riple Crown race for Castanon and trainer Dale

credit in his long career. “I’ve won some big races, but none as exciting as that one,” he said. Shackleford paid $27.20, $10.20 and $6.80. Animal Kingdom paid $4.20 and $3.60. Astrology paid $8 to show. Dialed In was fourth, fol-

INVADERS DROP PAIR TO ALPINE
ALPINE, Texas — Roswell dropped both ends of a doubleheader against Alpine on Saturday, dropping its record to 3-5. In Game 1 the Cowboys prevailed 3-1 and in the nightcap they won 1-0. Alpine took the lead in the first game with an RBI single by Mike Marion in the bottom of the third. The Cowboys tacked on a run in both the fifth and sixth innings to take a 3-0 lead. Roswell had a chance to tie it in the seventh, but after an RBI single by Brian Ramriez, Troy Frazier struck out with two men on to end the game. Mike McCravey went 4 1/3 innings and was charged with the Game 1 loss for Roswell. In Game 2, the Invaders couldn’t get anything going offensively. Roswell mustered only one hit off of Alpine pitchers Kevin Foeman and Greg Denton. Josh Grady, the Invader’s starting pitcher, allowed two runs on eight hits in picking up the loss. Alpine took the lead in the fourth on an RBI double by Cody Collins and tacked on an insurance run in the sixth.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Dirk Nowitzki scored 18 points during an off night for both of the game’s superstars, and the Dallas Mavericks built a huge lead early before hanging on for a 93-87 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night to take a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference finals. The Mavericks, who tied with Miami for the league’s best road record during the regular season, won for the fourth straight time outside Dallas in these playof fs and reclaimed home-court advantage just two nights after letting it get away in Game 2.

David Toms blows 7-shot lead at Colonial, Wi leads
FOR T WOR TH, T exas (AP) — Charlie Wi made a 32-foot birdie putt on the par-3 16th hole soon after a weather delay at Colonial, taking the lead after playing partner David Toms blew a seven-stroke advantage in the third round Saturday. After Wi holed the birdie putt, T oms’ 16-foot par chance just missed for a two-stroke swing. Wi finished with a 4under 66 to get to 13 under, a stroke better than Toms (74) and four ahead of John Senden (70). “I didn’t think I’d be able to close the gap like I did,” said Wi, who began the round just hoping to get within three or four strokes. Toms built his huge lead with bogey-free 62s in the first two rounds. He opened with a birdie Sat-
urday before three bogeys in a five-hole stretch while Wi got started with consecutive birdies. Even worse for T oms was a three-putt from 7 1/2 feet for double bogey at No. 14, where Wi chipped to 12 feet to save par right before a 1-hour, 20-minute delay. Wi made his 100th cut in 147 PGA Tour events this weekend, but the 39year-old South Korean has never won. The 44-year-old Toms is a 12-time winner, but is looking for his first victory in more than five years. He is coming off a playoff loss to K.J. Choi last weekend at The Players Championship. While T oms now has another disappointment to overcome, at least he still See GOLF, Page B2

from the field but Dallas still called on him in the clutch to hold off Oklahoma City’s late charge. “He’s the best, even if he’s not making shots early he wants the ball to make a play,” Dallas guard Jason Kidd said. NBA scoring champion Kevin Durant also struggled from the field, hitting just 7 of 22 shots to finish with 24 points and 12 rebounds. Russell Westbrook responded to a fourth-quarter benching with 30 points, helping the Thunder rally from 23 points down to make it interesting in the final minutes. Dallas had already blown a 23-point lead in the final 13 minutes in the first round at Portland, and led by 22 with 17 minutes to go this time. Even with Nowitzki struggling, the Mavericks leaned on the big German
SPORTS coupled with Wi’s impressive up-and-down at the same hole cut the gap to one stroke. “Until then, I wasn’t even thinking about the lead,” Wi said. Before Toms and Wi finished No. 15, play was stopped because of an approaching storm. Only a little bit of rain fell before play resumed and both made their par putts. Wi’s tee shot at No. 16 landed on the back side of with the Thunder closing the gap. Nowitzki got the ball on 10 of 11 possessions and scored just three times, but it was enough to keep Oklahoma City at bay. Westbrook and Daequan Cook each missed 3-pointers that could’ve gotten the Thunder within three, and Westbrook then lost the ball out of bounds before Jason T erry’s jumper stretched the advantage to 86-78 with 1:42 remaining. Nowitzki added a jumper from the left elbow to put the lead back at eight after Durant hit two free throws, and Dallas held on from there. Shawn Marion also scored 18, and Kidd and Terry each chipped in 13. Tyson Chandler had 15 rebounds, including six on the offensive end. The Thunder leaned on their bench again in the fourth quarter, but this time Westbrook was on the court instead of the bench like he was in Game 2.

HUTCHINSON, Kansas — NMMI’s Iwona Czerniak placed 12th in 800 meter run at the 2011 NJCAA Track & Field Championships on Saturday. Czerniak finished the 800 in 2 minutes and 23.13 seconds.

the green. Toms pushed his right into the rough. Toms got to 17 under with his opening birdie Saturday at the 565-yard No. 1 hole, chipping from just short of the green to 6 feet. Then came three bogeys in a five-hole stretch when he had a couple of bad bounces. His approach at the par -4 second hit on the front of the green but rolled back into the greenside bunker. He blasted to about 19 feet and two-
putted for his first bogey in 38 holes. After missing the fairway left at No. 3 and hitting a low liner approach that stopped just short of the green, Toms pushed a 5 1/2-foot par chance just right of the hole. At the difficult 247-yard fourth hole, his tee shot landed in the frontside bunker so deep that the 5-foot-10 Toms’ head was barely visible from the back of the green when he blasted to 9 feet. When he
Roswell Daily Record made that putt, he had a slight fist pump that was more relief than celebration. But Toms got another bad break when his approach at No. 6 rolled off the right side of the green. He chipped 9 feet past the hole and couldn’t save the par, and walked away with holding both hands out. After carding 31s on both nines on each of the first two rounds, T oms finished the front side
Saturday at 2-over 37. He had already missed five greens, matching his total for first two rounds. Still, at that point, Toms still was 14 under with a three-stroke lead over Wi and Wilson, playing in the group ahead. “I felt after the first six holes, I was just hanging on. ... Trying not to make a mistake,” Toms said. “Maybe I’ll go out there with a little pressure off of me and see if we can do better (Sunday).”

lude and Flashpoint. Once again, fans’ hopes to see a Triple Crown winner at long last will have to wait for another racing season. The last horse to sweep the Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes was Af fir med in 1978. Big Brown was the last to attempt a Triple, in 2008. Trainer Graham Motion, full of hope and expectation at the start of the race, looked on glumly as Animal Kingdom couldn’t catch Shackleford in time. “He ran huge. I was hoping he was going to get there,” said Motion, who had kept the Derby winner at his stable 60 miles away in the Maryland countryside until race morning. Shaking off his jitters, Shackleford broke alertly, as did another speedy horse, Flashpoint. They dueled through a quick opening quarter -mile of 22.69 seconds, just a fifth of a second off the Preakness record. “It was fast, but he kind of pulled everyone else out of the race,” Romans said. As they sped along, Animal Kingdom and Dialed In, the second favorite, were running at the back of the 14-horse field. “I kind of had to hustle him out of there,” said

John Velazquez, riding Animal Kingdom. “We lost a lot of ground in the first turn.” Velazquez tore through multiple sets of goggles as the dirt kicked back into Animal Kingdom’s face, which he clearly didn’t like. “He broke so far back the dirt started hitting him,” the jockey said. “He
had to make up too much ground.” Castanon was able to get Shackleford to relax into a comfortable rhythm as the pace slowed going down the backstretch. That proved to be a key moment. “That kind of hurt us,” Motion said. “That middle quarter really affected the outcome of the race.”
Midway through the final turn, Flashpoint gave up, leaving Shackleford as the lone target for the closers. Animal Kingdom started to pick up the pace entering the final turn. Unlike in the Derby, he couldn’t find a clear path and Velazquez had to pick his way around traffic to get to the outside.

When will NFL players begin to get restless?
Just a few days after the owners regained the momentum in the NFL labor dispute, union leader DeMaurice Smith stood before graduating seniors at the University of Maryland and gave the kind of speech he should have reserved for rallying the troops for what figures to be a long and uncomfortable summer. The message was passion, though it seemed somewhat lost on graduates who showed little of it in return. “Go ahead, I dig it, you can clap,” Smith implored them at one point. Nothing wrong with Smith’s speech,

except perhaps the awkward moment when he tried to lead the students in a chorus of “You suck.” They seemed more interested in grabbing a sheepskin and heading out to party than listening to the keynote speaker. So far, Smith’s players have listened better. They’ve formed a unified front behind him as the union that technically is no more tries to fight off the NFL’s efforts to slice up the lucrative deal that has made many of them rich. Just as the 2011 graduates at Maryland will now find, though, the easy part is over. Flush with its early success in court, the union now finds itself playing defense as the league settles into the lockout that owners wanted all along. It’s not going to get any easier in the upcoming weeks. Memorial Day weekend, the traditional start of summer, is but a week away and pressure on the players is starting to build. Training camps are supposed to open in just two months, and players soon will have to adjust to the reality of losing both bonus checks and paychecks to the impasse. By then, Smith may need his best oratory skills to keep them from cracking. “The players have had great solidarity to
this point, but that will get tighter as players go longer and longer without their workout and signing bonuses and get closer to the season,” said Robert Boland, professor of sports management at New York University’s Tisch Center. “The longer we go without any kind of sense of when they will get paid again, the more their internal resolve is tested and the harder it becomes to hold them together.” That’s true in almost any labor dispute, though this one is different from most. Players are widely viewed as millionaires, but a large portion of the decertified NFL Players Association toils for a lot less than most people would think. Even at, say, $500,000 or so, they are well paid compared to the average American. But their contracts aren’t guaranteed, careers are notoriously short, and there are many players — rookie free agents and veterans alike — whose job prospects depend on who they can impress in training camp. Without an agreement in the next few months, they may not get that shot. And the fact their earning power declines with each lost day means they will begin worrying even more as the weather warms and

Sunday, May 22, 2011 thoughts turn to the traditional opening of training camps around the country. It’s those kind of players the NFL will be counting on to crack first, and it will take all of Smith’s skills to keep them from bolting the ranks. No union chief has to serve more diverse constituents than Smith, who must balance the needs of multimillionaires like Tom Brady and Peyton Manning against those of players simply hoping to make as many paychecks as they can before being drummed out of the league. Attorneys for players returned to court Friday, trying to convince a federal appeals court to lift the lockout. This time, though, it was with what seemed to be a renewed sense of urgency, with attorneys arguing the lockout threatens players with career-ending harm and may deprive the public of the 2011 NFL season. The urgency is well-placed. Training camps are supposed to open in just two months, the first preseason game is Aug. 7, and the regular-season opener in Green Bay is Sept. 8. While talk about real games being missed seemed to be just abstract speculation a few months ago, it now is beginning to seem like an increasing reality. All that could change of course if the two

sides return to the bargaining table for real, though that won’t happen until sometime after the June 3 hearing before the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on the validity of the lockout.

Blue Jays rally to beat Astros, Cardinals blank Royals
TORONTO (AP) — Even Jose Bautista is surprised with how many home runs he’s piling up. Bautista hit two more homers, increasing his major league leading total to 18, Yunel Escobar added a tiebreaking shot and the Toronto Blue Jays rallied to beat the Houston Astros 75 on Saturday. Baseball’s reigning home run king had 54 last season, more than tripling his previous career high of 16. He’s on pace to not just beat that mark this year, but smash it. “It’s always a surprise when you keep hitting home runs,” Bautista said. “I’m not surprised about the RBIs or the fact that I’m playing well. Given what happened last year, knowing what I feel like I’m capable of doing, I expected to perform at a high level. I’m doing probably a little bit better than I expected.” Rookie teammate Eric Thames is just as shocked by Bautista’s unbridled power. “Man, this guy’s a freak.” Thames said. “You think you can just hold him down, but he makes adjustments. He just smashes the ball.” Bautista hit a three-run drive to left off Brett Myers in the sixth and added a solo shot to left against Jose Valdez in the eighth. It was his third multihomer game of the season and the 14th of his career. In the seventh, after Jose Molina tied it at four with a two-out single to center, Escobar hit a two-run drive to left, his fourth. Escobar’s shot also came off Myers (1-4), who has not won since April 12, a span of seven starts. The right-hander allowed six runs, five earned, in 6 2-3 innings. He walked none and struck out two. “I made some good pitches, but also a couple of mistakes and they hit them hard,” Myers said. “Sometimes you get away with them, but I haven’t all year. It's been tough.”
Cardinals 3, Royals 0
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Jake Westbrook pitched eight shutout innings and Matt Holliday broke a scoreless tie with a two-run homer in the eighth, lifting St. Louis to a win over Kansas City on a bright, breezy Saturday afternoon. Westbrook, (4-3) whose longest start this year had been seven innings, gave up four hits, with three walks and three strikeouts while raising his career mark in Kauffman Stadium to 3-0. Kansas City’s Nate Adcock went five scoreless innings in his first major league start. Albert Pujols singled off Tim Collins (2-2) with one out in the eighth and then Holliday, who came in with an NL-leading .357 average, hit reliever Blake Wood’s 2-1 pitch 433 feet over the left field fence.
White Sox 9, Dodgers 2
CHICAGO (AP) — Mark
Buehrle threw seven strong innings to become the career victories leader in interleague play, Paul Konerko drove in three runs and the Chicago White Sox beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-2 on Saturday. Buehrle (4-3) allowed seven hits and two runs to win for the third time in four starts, giving him his 24th interleague victory — breaking his tie with Jamie Moyer atop the career list. He struck out one, and did not walk anyone for the second time in three starts. Alex Rios and Brent Lillibridge homered in Chicago's 15-hit attack, the fifth time this season the White Sox have had at least that many. They broke it open with a six-run fourth against former teammate Jon Garland (1-4) as Rios hit a two-run homer, and Alexei Ramirez and Konerko later added two-run singles. Konerko’s hit chased Garland, who allowed 11 hits and seven runs in 3 23 innings. It was the most runs Garland allowed in a start since May 29, 2009, and the most hits he's allowed since July 6, 2007.
Indians 2, Reds 1
CLEVELAND (AP) — Travis Buck hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the seventh inning to give Josh Tomlin and the Cleveland Indians a victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday. Buck connected with two outs against Homer Bailey (3-1), who took a one-hitter into the seventh. Tomlin (6-1) gave up one run and three hits over seven innings. Vinnie Pestano worked the eighth and Chris Perez the ninth for his 12th save in 13 chances as Cleveland improved baseball’s best record to 28-15. Cincinnati tied its season-long losing streak at four games. Tomlin became the fifth pitcher since 1919 to work at least five innings in each of his first 21 career appearances. The most recent was Boston’s Daisuke Matsuzaka, who did it in 28 games in 2007.
Orioles 8, Nationals 3
BALTIMORE (AP) — Jeremy Guthrie pitched seven solid innings to win for the first time since opening day, and Nolan Reimold’s two-run homer keyed a four -run third inning as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Washington Nationals on Saturday. Guthrie (2-6) allowed just two unear ned runs and hadn’t won in his past seven starts. He came in with the poorest run support of any American League starter. The Orioles, who ended a four-game losing streak, hadn’t scored while he was on the mound in his previous three starts. He allowed two unearned runs in the third inning when first baseman Brandon Snyder booted a ball that Laynce Nix hit. Guthrie allowed five hits,

striking out four and walking one. The Orioles scored four runs off John Lannan (2-5) in the third.
Marlins 5, Rays 3
MIAMI (AP) — Javier Vazquez pitched seven shutout innings in his best start of the season Saturday, and the Florida Marlins defeated cross-state rival Tampa Bay for the second day in a row. Vazquez (3-4) had made only one quality start previously this season, but he limited the Rays to three hits and two walks. He had a season-high seven strikeouts and lowered his ERA from 7.55 to 6.41 in his longest outing since July 26. The veteran right-hander outpitched Rays ace David Price (5-4), who went 6 2-3 innings and gave up five runs, including homers to Hanley Ramirez and Omar Infante. Logan Morrison had a two-run double for the Marlins, who improved to 129-107 (.545) in interleague play. Leo Nunez struck out two in a scoreless ninth for his 17th save, most in the majors.
Phillies 2, Rangers 0
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Cliff Lee threw eight dominant innings against the team he led to the World Series last year, R yan Howard hit a solo homer and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Texas Rangers on Saturday night. Lee (3-4) allowed five hits and struck out 10 to earn his first win since April 14. The lefty helped the Rangers capture the first AL pennant in franchise history after joining them last July. But he turned down more money from Texas and the New York Yankees to retur n to Philadelphia, signing a $120 million, five-year deal. Rangers starter Colby Lewis (4-5) gave up two runs and seven hits in 6 23 innings. He didn’t get any

Giants 3, Athletics 0
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — T im Lincecum pitched a three-hitter, and the San Francisco Giants beat the cross-bay rival Oakland Athletics 3-0 on Saturday for their fourth straight victory. The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner allowed R yan Sweeney’s two-out single in the first before retiring 21 straight
batters, leading the Giants past the A’s for the second day in a row. Lincecum (4-4) struck out five and walked none for his eighth career complete game, handing Oakland its fourth straight loss. Buster Posey had two hits and drove in the only run against starter Brett Anderson (2-4), who left after giving up five hits in five innings to the defending World Series champions. Cody Ross added an RBI single and Miguel Tejada had a sacrifice fly in the eighth.
Brewers 3, Rockies 2
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Shaun Marcum won his sixth straight decision with eight effective innings and Jonathan Lucroy homered, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers to a 3-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night. Milwaukee has won nine of 12 overall and has the NL’s best winning percentage at home at .714 (15-6) after John Axford survived an adventure in the ninth for his 11th save.
Heat, Bulls expect another physical test in Game 3 Roswell Daily Record
MIAMI (AP) — Dwyane Wade’s right arm had a nasty gash that left him unwilling to shoot the ball for Miami down the stretch. Omer Asik needed stitches around his chin, not to mention a Chicago jersey that wasn’t covered in his own blood. That was Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals. And in Game 3, both sides expect more of the same. “We haven’t been able to ease into anything this
year,” Heat forward LeBron James said. Don’t look for that to change anytime soon, either. With a 2-1 series lead at stake, the Bulls and Heat renew acquaintances Sunday in Miami, ending a roughly 94-hour hiatus in already-physical the matchup. When Game 2 ended Wednesday, just about everyone in the Heat locker room had an icepack strapped to something, and more than a few limped

Players call NFL a ‘cartel’ in court filing
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — NFL players who sued the league for alleged antitrust violations liken the league to a “cartel” in their latest court filing, again urging an appeals court to lift the lockout. In arguments filed in the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, just minutes before Friday’s midnight deadline, attorneys for the players reiterated their argument that the NFL has violated antitrust laws. They also argued the lockout has imposed immediate, careerending threatening harm on players and may deprive the public of the 2011 professional football season. “The players face immediate, continuing, severe irreparable injury from unlawful conduct orchestrated to force them to reunionize against their will and make immense financial concessions,” the players’ attorneys wrote. “The NFL, by contrast, claims only a temporary loss of leverage by members of a cartel that is no longer entitled to any exemption from the antitrust laws.” The longer the fight over how to divvy up $9 billion in annual revenue drags on, the closer the league and players get to missing games. The first preseason game is Aug. 7, with the regular season opener between the Saints and Packers set for Sept. 8 in Green Bay, Wis. In Friday’s filing, the players reiterated that the decision to dissolve their union was their lawful right, and the absence of a collective bargaining agreement shouldn’t stop the NFL’s ability to “conduct professional football.” And, they argued, the harm they would suffer isn’t comparable to the league’s argument that it would suffer an “intangible blow to their ‘negotiating position’ and ’leverage.”’ “The overwhelming inequity in that imbalance is patently obvious,” the players’ attorneys wrote. The players have argued all along that their careers are being harmed by the work stoppage — they can’t
work out, or sign contracts with any of the 32 clubs while the lockout persists. A federal judge in Minnesota agreed and lifted the lockout April 25, but the league appealed. The appeals court reversed U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson’s decision just four days later. And on Monday, the appellate court ruled the lockout can stay in place until a full appeal is heard on whether it is legal. That hearing is set for June 3. The players got some support Friday from other pro players and fans. The unions for hockey, baseball and basketball players filed a legal brief saying the lockout should be lifted because professional athletes’ careers are short, and the loss of even part of a season causes personal and professional injuries for which they can’t be compensated. In their filing, the unions for the MLB, NBA and NHL wrote, “there is no off-season in professional sports — only the portion of the work year during which no games are played.” The unions said that part of the year brings opportunities — such as the option to change cities, teams or the trajectory of one’s career. Also Friday, a nonprofit group that has been fighting sport work stoppages said the lockout should be lifted. The Sports Fans Coalition, which says it gives fans a voice on public policy issues and fights for fan access to games, said in a legal brief that the lockout is not in the best interest of fans, who pay billions of dollars to see their teams perform. The players’ attorneys argued: “The NFL does not suffer irreparable harm from operating the game of football — especially at a profit.” “Here, there is no question that the interest of the public — the fans, stadium workers, parking lot attendants, sports bars and restaurants, and local governments — favors an injunction to allow football to proceed on whatever lawful terms the NFL Defendants collectively impose,” the players’ attorneys wrote.
their way to the bus that would carry them to the airport. Just think: They were the winning side. “Fortunately, we were able to have some days to recuperate,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “Our guys, they’re not shying away from it. Neither team is. Both teams have built these habits for the entire season. We’ve proven we’re an aggressive, attacking, physical defense that rebounds the basketball. ... They’ve proven to be the same. So you have two things colliding into each other.” The Bulls — the NBA’s top overall seed who no longer has home-court advantage in this series — have shown they can recover quickly. After each of their three previous playoff losses, Chicago answered with a double-digit win in the next game. Plus, the Bulls haven’t lost consecutive games since February 5-7. “Don’t jinx us like that,” Bulls guard Derrick Rose said. Since 2006, when the Heat won their lone title, the winner of Game 3 of the East title series has advanced to the NBA finals every time. “This is going to be a crazy game, where I think they’re going to have a lot of confidence,” said Rose, the NBA’s MVP this season. “Some way, somehow, we’ve just got to come up with this win no matter how we get it. We’ve just got to have more intensity than them
and play way more aggressive.” Can this series get any more aggressive? Wade seems to think it might. Scoring might be plentiful in the Oklahoma City-Dallas matchup out West, but the East likely will be won in gritty fashion. “This is a very physical series,” Wade said. “This is a grind-out series. You look at our series compared to the other series, it’s night and day between the styles. Very physical and I’m sure both teams in between games are in the icetub, trying to get their body ready for the next one.” The Bulls manhandled Miami on the boards on the way to a Game 1 rout, getting 31 second-chance points in the series opener. Miami cut that nearly in half for Game 2, holding Chicago to 18 secondchance points and outrebounding the Bulls 45-41. Miami was markedly better on defense as well. Chicago had four field goals in the final 13 minutes of Game 2, all of them by reserve Taj Gibson, and the Heat outscored the Bulls 14-10 in the fourth quarter, which Spoelstra and Miami pointed to afterward as a source of major pride. “We have to execute a lot better,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. “We have to screen better. We have to keep the ball moving. But we have to get some easy baskets, too.” In Game 2, that wasn’t happening. The Bulls had 83 different quarters this season in

James. He’s played at least 40 minutes in nine of Miami’s last 10 playoff games — and the lone exception was a matchup where he was six seconds shy of that. James has averaged nearly 46 minutes of playing time in the last four Heat games, yet insists he’s not wearing down whatsoever. “I never ask him if he’s tired or if he can absorb that many minutes,” Spoelstra said. “He’s a remarkably well-conditioned athlete. In many ways, he’s a freak of nature.”
which they scored 29 points. On Wednesday, that’s what they managed in the entire second half. “We’re all in it together,” said James, who had nine big points in a late 11-2 run that snapped a 73-all tie and sealed the Game 2 win. “I made a few plays down the stretch. But if we didn’t continue to get stops defensively and give ourselves an opportunity to get in that position, we wouldn’t be 1-1 now.” If anyone really enjoyed the long gap between Games 2 and 3, it was

Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta founder dies ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Authorities say Albuquerque Inter national Balloon Fiesta founder Sid Cutter has died. Officials with the Balloon Fiesta say Cutter died in his sleep early Saturday at age 77 after a long battle with stomach cancer. The Albuquerque-born
Cutter was credited with organizing the first Balloon Fiesta in 1972. The yearly event grew steadily for decades and now is considered one of world’s largest hot air balloon festivals. The nine-day event is held in Albuquerque in early October and is one of the city’s biggest
tourist attractions. It also serves as a major showcase of New Mexican culture and history. As a pilot, Cutter was the U.S. National Hot Air Balloon champion in 1978 and 1986. In lieu of a funeral, a living reception was held for Cutter in April.

‘Crock’ cartoonist Bill Rechin, 80, dies SPOTSYLVANIA, Va. (AP) — Cartoonist Bill Rechin, known for the syndicated “Crock” strip that parodies life in a Foreign Legion desert outpost, has died at age 80. Rechin’s son-in-law, Bob Morgan, says the cartoonist died at home Saturday in Spotsylvania County of complications
from esophageal cancer. In 1975, Rechin, Don Wilder and Brant Parker created the “Crock” comic strip as a parody of the Foreign Legion classic “Beau Geste.” The strip, which follows the adventures of Vermin P. Crock and an assortment of characters stationed at their grim desert outpost,
is distributed by King Features Syndicate and appears in more than 200 newspapers in 19 countries. Morgan says he and Rechin’s son, Kevin Rechin, plan to continue producing the comic strip. Funeral arrangements were incomplete.
Roswell Daily Record
Comedy and fairy tales upcoming in television NEW YORK (AP) â€” Jimmy Kimmelâ€™s lacerating dissection of the industry has become an annual highlight of the week when televisionâ€™s biggest networks reveal programming plans to advertisers. This year he nailed the pie-eyed suspension of disbelief that characterizes each sales job. â€œRemember those shows we were so excited about last fall?â€? Kimmel said at the ABC session. â€œWe canceled all of them. And yet here you are again. I think you might have a gambling problem.â€? Big laughs, perhaps from the hint of recognition. Of the 18 new series that debuted last fall on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox, six survived to make this coming Septemberâ€™s schedule â€” a batting average of .250. Take away the relatively stable CBS, and itâ€™s three out of 13. That doesnâ€™t even count shows that appeared in midseason and are already history, such as â€œThe Paul Reiser Showâ€? and Matthew Perryâ€™s â€œMr. Sunshine.â€? And yet, the dance begins again. While the ways to experience television have changed dramatically over the past decade with DVDs, digital video recorders and Internet streaming, the brutally inefficient ways of making it have not. Thereâ€™s little incentive to alter things, judging by predictions for this yearâ€™s â€œupfront,â€? the mad scramble to spend billions of dollars on advertising for next season. The $8.5 billion hauled in by broadcasters last spring will almost certainly be topped, said
Jack Myers of the industry newsletter Jack Myersâ€™ Media Business Report. Big spending sectors such as the auto industry are expected to buy more commercial time. Advertisers these days have better access to research telling them that TV is their most efficient way to get their message across, Myers said. Perhaps sensing this, NBCâ€™s new management had a turnback-the-clock vibe in its presentation. After years in which the network touted new content delivery systems, Comcastappointed NBC executive Ted Harbert got a big hand by promising his audience â€œa little less reinventing the wheelâ€? and more attention to broadcasting basics. The week had its usual displays of competition, snark and a whole lot of laugh tracks â€” with a few clear trends emerging.
It may seem that every amateur singer who wants to jump on stage in front of cameras will be getting the chance. â€œAmerican Idolâ€? isnâ€™t going anywhere, of course, and now Fox will have Simon Cowellâ€™s â€œThe X Factorâ€? in the fall. Desperate for success, NBC has made â€œThe Voiceâ€? a central building block after a couple of strong weeks. â€œSome critics say weâ€™re ripping off â€˜American Idol,â€?â€™ NBCâ€™s â€œSaturday Night Liveâ€? star Seth Meyers joked. â€œTo which I say, â€˜If you have a better idea, weâ€™d like to hear it.â€?â€™ Kimmelâ€™s take on â€œThe X Fac-
torâ€?: â€œThis is the best idea since 2002. Itâ€™s like â€˜American Idolâ€™ meets a mirror.â€? If it works â€” and executives are confident about that â€” itâ€™s a game-changer for Fox.
ABCâ€™s â€œModern Familyâ€? breathed new life into the sitcom, and now networks consider comedy a priority. ABC is putting two comedies in a Tuesday time slot once held by a drama, and NBC is doing the same on Wednesday. â€œComedy is usually the core of any network schedule, which is why we would like to get back to that,â€? said Fox entertainment chief Kevin Reilly. â€œComedy was kind of anemic for a while.â€? Judging shows on the basis of a few minutesâ€™ highlights is dangerous, but it looks like there may be a rough period of trial and error next season. ABCâ€™s â€œWork Itâ€? is about two men who dress as women to get a job; itâ€™s hard to envision the idea sustaining itself for more than 20 minutes. The big joke in NBCâ€™s â€œUp All Nightâ€? is new parents Will Arnett and Christina Applegate learning not to swear in front of their baby. The premise and performance of T im Allenâ€™s new â€œLast Man Standingâ€? on ABC seemed tired. Two promising entries are Foxâ€™s sweet Zooey Deschanel entry â€œNew Girlâ€? and CBSâ€™ story of two struggling waitresses â€œ2 Broke Girls.â€? It was a good week for Whitney Cummings, who will star in a new NBC sitcom and coproduces â€œ2 Broke Girlsâ€? with
Sunday, May 22, 2011
Michael Patrick King. The weekâ€™s best comic performance went to Steve Koonin, head of the Turner networks, who launched an impromptu monologue when a power surge knocked out the video at the TBS and TNT upfront. He even tried to lead the audience in rounds of â€œRow, Row, Row Your Boat.â€? â€œOur (advertising) pricing is not going to change because of this,â€? Koonin said. â€œHowever, I think our expenses are going to go down, if you know what I mean.â€? Get this man a talk show!
Blame it on the vampires, but the supernatural will be big on TV next season. NBCâ€™s creepy â€œGrimmâ€? is inspired by Grimmsâ€™ fairy tales. ABCâ€™s â€œOnce Upon a Timeâ€? features Snow White and Prince Charmingâ€™s missing daughter. The surgeon in CBSâ€™ â€œA Gifted Manâ€? is haunted by the spirit of his ex-wife. Foxâ€™s â€œTerra Novaâ€? imagines a family from the future sent back to prehistoric times. A man who survived an auto accident in NBCâ€™s â€œAwakeâ€? finds parallel realities â€” one where his wife is dead, the other where his son is dead. In ABCâ€™s super-creepy â€œThe River,â€? a family investigates the mysterious disappearance of their wildlife expert patriarch. Hard enough to keep the real world straight. CBSâ€™s two new dramas featuring characters with super-powers: a woman who has almost total recall of everything thatâ€™s happened in her life and a man
able to predict the future fates of people through their Social Security numbers. In true CBS fashion, these powers are put to use to solve gruesome crimes. RETRO CHIC(equals) AMC has to be flattered that both ABC and NBC have series clearly inspired by â€œMad Menâ€? that are set in the early 1960s. Both ABCâ€™s â€œPan Am,â€? featuring the defunct airlineâ€™s stewardesses and pilots, and NBCâ€™s â€œThe Playboy Club,â€? featuring the bunnies, appear to have sleek, stylish casts and costumes. TBD: whether the stories can match up.
Nothing is more fun than networks taking shots at one another, since denigrating the competition helps your own business. But CBSâ€™s corporate honcho Leslie Moonves seemed genuinely miffed hearing that both Meyer and Kimmel joked about CBSâ€™s older audience, considered less valuable by advertisers. (â€?CBS is No. 1,â€? Kimmel said. â€œThatâ€™s mainly because their viewers canâ€™t remember where they put the remote.â€?) Moonves noted that CBS has done better than ABC and NBC in the youthful 18-to-49-year-old demographic. â€œWeâ€™re a little tired of those old people jokes,â€? he said. â€œThey donâ€™t work anymore. And I might venture to say, we have hotter women on CBS than on any other network.â€?
Happy tune: Braddock enters Country Hall of Fame
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) â€” Bobby Braddockâ€™s songwriting process usually starts with a title, but not all the time. Sometimes heâ€™s just got the germ of an idea and sleeps on it, letting his subconscious do the work. Other times the song just writes itself, forcing its way out of Braddockâ€™s brain and into the hearts of country music fans everywhere. Braddock, whose seminal â€œHe Stopped Loving Her Todayâ€? and â€œD-I-V-O-R-C-Eâ€? offered a new dimension of heartbreak to country music, has been asked about songwriting a lot lately as his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame approaches this Sunday. Heâ€™s just not sure he can adequately explain how he does it. â€œYou can ask me any question you want and Iâ€™ll answer it,â€? Braddock says as he sits in front of his piano in his writing room. â€œAll Iâ€™ve got to do is tell the truth. So thatâ€™s easy. But as far as writing a song, Iâ€™m not sure there is a truth.â€? Braddock has written some of the most iconic songs in country music, helping to shape the genre with thoughts and themes so incisive and true they can bring tears to your eyes
or make you laugh out loud. His songs have helped define the careers of singers like George Jones and Tammy Wynette, helped bring singers like Blake Shelton and Billy Currington to the top of the charts, and continue to amaze new listeners 45 years after he first charted. Braddockâ€™s induction into the hall, with fellow pioneers Reba McEntire and Jean Shepard, is something of a celebration for Nashvilleâ€™s vast underclass of songwriters. â€œItâ€™s all about the song,â€? goes the cliche in Nashville. But itâ€™s not often about the songwriters. Braddock is the first songwriter elected to the Hall of Fame since 1997. He was chosen under a new selection format that will put an emphasis on Nashvilleâ€™s most precious resource. There are just three pure songwriters currently in the Hall of Fame â€” Cindy Walker, Harlan Howard and the husbandwife team of Boudleaux and Felice Bryant. Braddock makes four. Now, every third year theyâ€™ll be joined by another. News of Braddockâ€™s induction received nearly universal praise. Toby Keith said Braddock has â€œbeen deserving of that for a long time.â€?
Added Currington: â€œHeâ€™s written so many great songs. Not just a bunch of hits, but great, well-written songs. And the fact that heâ€™s being inducted into the hall of fame is right on. He deserves to be there.â€? To find out why, letâ€™s start with those song titles â€” like Braddock often does. Theyâ€™re just a few words strung together. But even Braddockâ€™s titles are evocative and tell a story. â€œTime Marches On,â€? â€œPeople Are Crazy,â€? â€œI Wanna Talk About Me,â€? â€œWeâ€™re Not The Jet Set,â€? â€œGolden Ringâ€? are just a few of his many. His two best known songs helped secure the legend of two country greats who always seemed to excel with his material. George Jonesâ€™ version of â€œHe Stopped Loving Her Today,â€? written with Curly Putman, was so ground-shaking when it came out, it was voted the Country Music Associationâ€™s song of the year in both 1980 and â€™81 and is widely regarded as one of countryâ€™s greatest songs. And Tammy Wynetteâ€™s â€œD-I-V-O-R-C-Eâ€? tilted the country music world from the female perspective, clearing the way for a generation of brash and outgoing women to extend the dialogue in country.

Janet Jackson, Bill Clinton at Austrian AIDS bash
VIENNA (AP) — Janet Jackson, former U.S. President Bill Clinton and Brooke Shields joined thousands of revelers in risque attire Saturday at the Life Ball, a flamboyant Austrian fundraiser for people with HIV and AIDS. The trio was among a slew of celebrities who participated in a flashy opening ceremony outside Vienna’s city hall that included a fashion show and live acts by Natasha Bedingfield, Holly Johnson and Natalia Kills. Clinton reminded partygoers — many covering private body parts with nothing more than paint, feathers or G-strings — that a large number of those infected with the virus still aren’t getting access to lifesaving treatment. “We are here tonight because 10 million people in poor countries still need to be on the medicine and if you want to cut the infection rate, if you want to cut the death rate, we have to finish the job,” he said. In 2002, Clinton established an initiative to facilitate access to antiretroviral treatment and improve national health care systems in developing coun-
tries. Jackson recalled how in 1998, a South African AIDS activist was beaten to death by her neighbors after announcing on television that she was HIV positive. Earlier, she told reporters that every little bit helps when it comes to fighting AIDS. “We can’t continue to let this happen,” said Jackson, who is a representative of amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research. Brooke Shields, meanwhile, presented a 100,000 Crystal of Hope award to Anya Sarang, CEO of the Andrey Rylkov Foundation for Health and Social Justice that runs projects in Russia, where those who are HIV positive are often stigmatized. “She is definitely an angel,” Shields said of Sarang. In a video address, former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan called for continued action to ensure progress. “We need to constantly renew our commitment and measure our success not in terms of resolutions past but in the lives of future generations saved,” he said. “We all have a role to play.”
LONDON (AP) — BritishSierra Leonean writer Aminatta Forna has won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for “The Memory of Love,” a tale of war and its legacy set in West Africa. Organizers praised the novel Saturday as an “immensely powerful portrayal of human resilience.” Forna was born in Scotland, grew up in Sierra Leone and lives in London. She said the prize “means very many things to
me, but mostly that Sierra Leone has one of its first literary prizes. We have had a struggle in the past 10 or 15 years and I just hope I have made them proud.” The 10,000 pound ($16,000) prize is open to writers from Britain and the 53-nation Commonwealth. New Zealand writer Craig Clif f won the Commonwealth Best First Book prize for his short story collection “A Man Melting.”

Roswell Folklorico Tradiciones Mexicanas 2011
The Roswell Folklorico Cast MARTHA D. URQUIDES-STAAB VISTAS EDITOR PHOTOS COURTESY OF FRANK HERRERA
If you have lived in the Roswell area for at least 20 years then the name Frank Herrera and the Roswell Folklorico is well known. Herrera and his magnificent production of Folklorico is a cultural staple for the Roswell area. The food, music, dance, dress, footwork, hair, makeup, skirt movement is what makes Folklorico such a special part of the Hispanic culture. The dancing is the most expressive artistic form. This year the Roswell Folklorico is having its 18th annual dance recital titled “Tradiciones Mexicanas” and will be performed at the Performing Arts Center at the ENMU-R campus. Making it to 18 years is an incredible achievement for Herrera who is a native to the Roswell area. His Folklorico aspirations came from childhood when he participated in the Hondo Festival and flourished well on into his high school and young adult life. “In my sophomore year my teacher immediately saw a talent in me and she asked me to teach the younger kids.” When Herrera moved to Roswell, he started teaching with another Roswell dance legend, Minnie Wright, at Minnie’s first studio at the Women’s Club. “Minnie had asked me to teach a class for eight weeks, so I did and somehow my teaching went from eight weeks into 18 years.” Creating a production for 18 years and having practices all year-long five times a week can be tiring, but Herrera said, “At the end of every year I say to myself I’m done, this is a lot of work, this is my last year, but at the end of each recital I like to listen to everyone’s comments after a recital. One elderly woman came out in tears saying it had reminded her of her childhood growing up in Mexico and it brought back so many wonderful memories for her. That’s when I usually give in and say OK one more year. As long as I have my health, I’ll keep doing it.” The productions and milestones mean nothing without the dancers who have given their time and hearts to dancing. “It’s funny looking back at my first group of students I taught and over the years they bring their children, and then their children. It has evolved into a production of generations who come back and that’s special.” Herrera believes the reason for so many families and his student
population is because families want their children to know their roots and know where they come from; and to learn the culture and the art that Folklorico has to offer. The children and families who are involved with Herrera’s production have a strong bond with each other. There is a lot of parent involvement and have help from others in the community. Luz Romero has been helping the Folklorico with a lot of the costumes for the dances through the years including pieces for the Veracruz and Jalisco. The Folklorico spends a lot of time fundraising throughout the year to help put on their recital, pay for costumes, advertising, rental for the auditorium, lighting, sound and even competitions. This year the group participated in the Viva Aztlan Festival in Lubbock, Texas, and came home as winners. The children’s competition won in the Intermediate B Division for best Technique and Form, Choreography, Costume and Best Overall. Each year the recitals are different and Herrera tries to change up the regions which they feature. “Mexico has 31 states and each state has a different dance that distinguishes them from the rest. This year the regions featured are Nayarit, Yucatan, Oaxaca, Chiapas, Michoacan, Veracruz, New Mexico, Tamaulipas and the very popular Jalisco.” For several years a recital has never been the same. Frank attends conferences, workshops, anything Folklorico related to give him fresh ideas to keep it new and diverse. He has even brought in instructors from Mexico to host workshops for the students. Those instructors would then help bring other instructors down to continue flourishing the art and bring new creativity to the stage. Currently Herrera has been teaching classes to children as young as five years old to adults. He has recently added an older women’s group and aspires to put together a special needs group. “I have been wanting to do this for a while but I would like to work with Tobosa and Esperanza House to teach a special needs Folklorico class. I think it would be something different and therapeutic for them to be involved in.” While the idea is still in the works there is nothing decided yet on when audiences can see this production come to the stage. For many years Herrera has worked hard to share his
passion with as many people as possible although he hasn’t taken to the stage, but he says he may join his students in the future. The recital will be May 27 and 28 at Eastern New Mexico University-R campus, Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m. The cost is $7 per person. Tickets can be purchased from any of the dancers and will also be available at the door.
The Childrens Folklorico Group
The Ladies Folklorico Group
Singers for this year’s recital will be Bethany Rey Martinez and Ricardo Contreras.
If you are interested in joining the Roswell Folklorico, ages 5 to adult are welcome and registration will begin in the fall. If you have any questions, call Frank Herrera at 624-2724, or e-mail him at email@example.com.

Separation, a chance for couples to start over?
Q: My spouse and I recently separated. I have no idea what being separated means. When we do get together it’s to work out our problems and ends up in a big fight. We’re in counseling, but there is no fun in our relationship now that we’re separated. What should my expectations be? Juli: There are two types of separations. In the first type, the couple is, for all intents and purposes, divorced without the stigma and finality of divorce. The second type, called a “therapeutic separation,” sounds more like your situation. The purpose of a therapeutic separation is to address marital issues that became too difficult to deal with while living in the same home, with the goal of restoring the marriage. It’s very important for your separation to have a way back to intimacy that is clearly spelled out with your counselor. In other words, what specifically needs to change before you’re ready to reunite? You should be working intensely with your counselor on the issues you have identified. Your counselor should advise you regarding whether or not it is safe to have related conversations outside the counseling sessions. Some relationships are still too toxic to talk about the big issues without a mediator. While you need to have meetings to discuss the deeper issues of your marriage, your counselor may also recommend that you begin to date each other. When you go on dates, the purpose is to learn to have fun again and reconnect in a conflict-free setting. Believe it or not, dating is just as important as counseling to re-establishing feelings of trust and intimacy.
Q: I know I need to spend quality time with my wife and children, but my schedule at the office makes that almost impossible. How can I keep the home fires burning while also being the provider? Jim: Sadly, long workdays are the norm for many of us. However, authors Mike Yorkey and Greg Johnson have created a list of ways dads can get back some of those overtime hours and devote them to their families. First, Yorkey and Johnson suggest re-arranging your daily schedule. Have you considered going into work early? Then, you can beat the rush hour traffic for both the morning and evening commutes. If you do this consistently, you could save yourself several extra hours a

week — hours that could be spent with your spouse and kids. Also, think about skipping a few of those long lunches that we all take with our colleagues. By the time you factor in parking, ordering and everything else, the lunch “hour” can easily stretch to two. Instead, pack your own lunch and just take a 30-minute break. Not only will it save you money, it might also give you just enough extra time to make your son’s little league game later in the day, or your daughter’s piano recital. Finally, don’t be so quick to take a promotion the next time one is offered. If it’s going to require even more travel or overtime, it might be worth it just to stay where you are. Your family may need you more than they need extra income. I’m not suggesting that you shirk your responsibilities at the office. But we can’t allow our jobs to be all-consuming. There’s a big difference between putting in an honest day’s work and being a workaholic. With a little creativity, I believe busy dads can find a healthy balance between the office and the home.

Their family includes four grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
FOCUS ON THE FAMILY
Most importantly, all expectations, including boundaries regarding finances, intimacy and time spent together, need to be clearly spelled out and agreed upon. Otherwise, you’ll feel like you’re living in “limbo” — sort of married, sort of not. Don’t give up! Some of the strongest of marriages have weathered the waters you’re now wading through.
Kelsey is a 2011 graduate of NMSU and will begin her accounting career in Ohio in the fall. Matt graduated from NMSU in May 2011 and will begin law school at Ohio State Moritz School of Law in August. A July 2011 double ring ceremony is planned.

Ground Cover: The creeping cure for ugly bare spots JOAN CASANOVA GREEN EARTH MEDIA GROUP
Nearly every lawn or garden has one bare, ugly spot where nothing seems to grow well. Maybe the spot gets too much sun, or too much shade. Perhaps the soil is too sandy, rocky or full of clay for most plants to survive in it. Maybe it’s on a hill or slope where exposure to wind and water runoff make it uninhabitable for average plant life. Whichever one or more of these challenges is the source of your problem spot, chances are the cure is pretty universal: cover it up quickly, inexpensively and permanently with flowering or lush, green ground cover. Hardy, easy to grow and aesthetically appealing ground cover fills vacant spaces, solves landscaping trouble spots and minimizes garden maintenance. Ground cover can transform a dull, sparse space into a rich tapestry of textures, shapes and continual color. These plants can spruce up challenging spots under trees, accent transitional areas along paths and foundations, and intensify interest in open spaces.
Ground cover is a cost-effective, fast way to deal with difficult trouble spots. It performs the job of mulch at a fraction of the cost, blocking weed growth, insulating soil, protecting more fragile plants and adding visual appeal. Some ground covers even bolster nutrients for companion plants with more demanding nutritional needs. Spring is the best time to plant ground covers, giving roots a chance to become established before conditions turn harsh. But before you decide on which varieties of these landscaping miracle-makers you’ll plant, here are some ground cover guidelines: * Don’t just plant the first ground cover that catches your eye. First, take stock of your problem area so you can select a ground cover that is appropriate for the spot. Some ground covers need sun, while others thrive only in shade. Some prefer dry locations. Others require moist soil. * Assess the soil at the site. Is it sandy and dry? A lovely loam? Or wet, soggy clay? There’s a ground cover for every soil condition, but you’ll also need to test the acidity level of the soil. You may need to amend your soil to raise or lower its pH content, or add organic matter to
modify its texture. * Hardy as they are, ground covers still require proper fertilizing, watering and weed control to maintain their attractiveness – just like any other plant. Newly planted areas will need special attention until they’re well established. * Seed is the least expensive way to start ground cover. And planting ground cover seed is some of the easiest sowing you’ll ever do in your yard or garden. Ground cover seeds are typically much smaller and lighter than other plant seeds; often you’ll get as many as 175,000 seeds in just 1 ounce. One way to make sowing even easier is to use a pre-mix of seeds and lime, like those offered by Outsidepride.com. The mix comes in a shaker bottle and you simply sprinkle the seeds on the planting site. The lime in the mix improves the pH of acidic soils, adds valuable micronutrients and helps break down organic matter. The lime is also white, so it’s easy to tell where you’ve spread the seed. You can find a ground cover for virtually every soil situation and to suit every landscaping preference. Green Earth Media Group, Joan Casanova, 29 Forest Avenue, Fairfield, CT 06824
Germany voices support for Lagarde’s IMF bid Roswell Daily Record
French finance minister Christine Lagarde
BERLIN (AP) — The leaders of Europe’s biggest economy are throwing their weight behind France’s Christine Lagarde as the search to find a new leader for the International Monetary Fund intensifies. Lagarde has emerged as a front-runner to replace Dominique Strauss-Kahn, also of France, who resigned this week to face charges in New York that he tried to rape a hotel maid. He denies the charges. Germany’s Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble on Saturday voiced strong support for his French counterpart, and Chancellor Angela Merkel called her a “distinguished” and “very experienced” personality. “Europe would have the
best chance to secure the post again with Christine Lagarde, if she decides to run,” Schaeuble told the Ger man weekly Bild am Sonntag. He was quoted as saying that Lagarde was “outstandingly qualified” and “extremely respected and appreciated in the entire financial world.” Schaeuble and Merkel both stressed that it is crucial that all Europeans now rally behind a candidate. Merkel on Saturday stopped short of formally endorsing Lagarde but said she was a “distinguished” and “very experienced” personality. Schaeuble closely coordinates his position with Merkel in such cases — as they recently demonstrated
when they successively endorsed Italy’s Mario Draghi in his bid to become the next president of the European Central Bank. The IMF insists that Strauss-Kahn’s departure has not hurt its day-to-day operations, but it is clearly under pressure to find a successor fast to lead an organization that provides billions in loans to stabilize the world economy. The 24-member executive board, which will pick Strauss-Kahn’s successor, held a preliminary discussion on Friday at the IMF’s headquarters in Washington. They said in a statement late Friday that the selection of the fund’s new Managing Director will be completed by the end of next month.
Agricultural Women honor ‘Diamonds in the Rough’ LOCAL
BUSINESS ALBUQUERQUE — Innovation and Collaboration was the theme of the 9th Women in Agriculture Leadership Conference held recently in Albuquerque in conjunction with the American National Cattle Women Region 6 Meeting. Over 150 women from across New Mexico’s agricultural industry came together to discuss current issues, network and honor outstanding women in the group. This year Evelyn Carlisle Yates was honored by the group with the Diamond in the Rough Award. This award is given at each conference, recognizing outstanding women in New Mexico agriculture and highlighting her efforts and contributions. Yates is a cheerleader for New Mexico’s agriculture industry. As a rancher, she has been involved with the NM CowBelles for over 40 years, as well as the NM Beef Council and the NM Cattle Courtesy Photo Grower’s AssociEvelyn Yates ation. She was voted the CowBelle of the Year and nominated twice to the NM Hall of Fame for her work with the wives and children of migrant workers. Evelyn has impacted everyone she comes in touch with and has carried the torch for a long time. From welding on tankers in World War II, to reviving the nearly depleted Sacaton CowBelles in 2007, she is an inspiration to women, young and old, in New Mexico agriculture.

NATION Regulators shut 2 Ga. banks, 1 in Wash state
WASHINGTON (AP) — Regulators shut two banks in Georgia and a smaller bank in Washington state Friday, lifting to 43 the number of U.S. bank failures this year in the wake of a gutted economy and mounds of soured loans. The pace of closures has slowed, however, as the economy improves and banks work their way through the bad debt. By this time last year, regulators had closed 73 banks. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. seized Atlantic Southern Bank, based in Macon, Ga., with $741.9 million in assets; First Georgia Banking Co., based in Franklin, Ga., with $731 million in assets; and Summit Bank in Burlington, Wash., with $142.7 million in assets. CertusBank, based in Easley, S.C., agreed to assume the assets and deposits of Atlantic Southern Bank and First Georgia
Lorenzo; Lauren Nunn, Deming and Fita Witte, Las Cruces, were also nominated for this year’s award. This conference, held every two years in different locations around the state, draws women from all types of agriculture. “Today’s agricultural women are integral parts of their families’ agricultural operations, in addition to their traditional roles,” Caren Cowan, conference co-chair, said. “At these conferences, women are given information about issues that are impacting us all, and encouraged to get involved however they can, whether it’s attending a local county commission meeting, talking to a state legislator or writing a letter to the editor,” Cowan added. “Every year, we in agriculture become more and more of a minority, and we need to make sure our voices are heard.” This year’s conference covered a wide range of topics. Executive Director of Legislative Affairs for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Kristina Harris Butts and Vice President of the American National Cattle Women Barbara Jackson spoke about beef nutrition and the politics behind the dietary guidelines. Interim Department Head of Agricultural and Extension Education at New Mexico State University Dr. Cynda Clary and Valencia County Cooperative Extension 4-H Agent Vera Gibson discussed strengthsbased leadership training modules. Attendees also heard presentations on media training and tips on starting their own business, as well as an inspirational speech from Trent Loos on connecting rural and urban America by sharing the positive story of production agriculture.
Bueno Foods celebrates 60th anniversary
ALBUQUERQUE — Albuquerquebased Bueno Foods turned 60 years old Wednesday. The company has grown from a small family-owned grocery store in the south valley of Albuquerque into the Southwest’s premier producer of New Mexican foods. Still owned and operated by the Bacas, a family with multi-generational ties to New Mexico, Bueno Foods is now run by the second generation: Jacqueline Baca, president, and Gene Baca, senior vice
Banking. Columbia State Bank, based in Tacoma, Wash., is assuming the assets and deposits of Summit Bank. In addition, the FDIC and CertusBank agreed to share losses on $585.1 million of Atlantic Southern Bank’s loans and other assets, and on $452.1 million of First Georgia Banking’s assets. The agency and Columbia State Bank are sharing losses on $113.4 million of Summit Bank’s assets.
Georgia-based Aflac to sponsor Heisman Trophy
ATLANTA (AP) — The insurance firm Aflac says it will sponsor the Heisman T rophy next season. Aflac said in a statement that the company has a multi-year deal, but the ter ms were not released and the company did not return a telephone message seeking comment Friday night. Aflac’s statement did not indicate specifically what the sponsorship will entail. It said the firm can now offer “an array of exclusive, Heisman-themed experiences to its accounts and brokers.”
president. Bueno Foods is committed to the larger Albuquerque community through employment and economic development. The company employs about 205 people year-round and up to 350 people during peak season. A conscious decision was made to stay in the Barelas community to bring jobs to this economically depressed “Pocket of Poverty.” It is also where the Baca family has its New Mexico roots. As its payroll and purchases ripple through the economy, Bueno Foods supports secondary businesses and employment. Also, Bueno Foods reinvests its national sales to the New Mexico economy through its purchases from area farmers and locally grown products. “Instead of having a party, we thought we’d celebrate by doing activities that are more consistent with our core values,” said Jacqueline Baca. “My family feels honored to be a local company headquartered right here in New Mexico, providing jobs to New Mexicans, participating in our community, and preserving our New Mexico culture. We are a home-grown part of this community, and we want to make a difference,” Baca said.

Gov’t issues new review for Chukchi Sea oil leases
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The federal government released a revised environmental review Friday for petroleum leases in the Chukchi Sea of f Alaska’s northwest coast, but environmentalists said it still contains critical gaps. The revised draft environmental review by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement responds to a federal judge’s ruling that the government failed to follow environmental law before it sold the leases. The review is “woefully incomplete,” said Erik Grafe, a spokesman for Earthjustice, which represented 15 Alaska Native and environmental groups in a lawsuit that led to the July 2010 ruling.

But many say the fund — shaken by StraussKahn’s abrupt departure while it plays a crucial role in Europe’s ongoing sovereign debt crisis — needs to get a new leader even faster to get his job done. The chair man of the organization’s policy advisory committee, Singapore’s Finance Minister Thar man Shanmugaratnam, said the IMF is facing pressing challenges and speedy selection of a new leader would be good. The selection process to find a new IMF chief should be open, transparent and merit-based, the chairman of the IMF’s International Monetary and Financial Committee said in a statement Saturday. A U.S. Treasury official
earlier this week said the United States had not decided whether to support Lagarde or a non-European for the job. The European Union’s 27 members combined hold the biggest IMF stake, but emerging economies see Europe’s traditional stranglehold on the position as increasingly out of touch with the world economy. However, they have not yet united around a candidate. Lagarde’s chances for the job got a boost Friday when Kemal Dervis, a for mer finance minister for Turkey who had been considered the leading non-European candidate, said he did not want to be considered for the position.
New app another tool for workers in wage disputes Gov’t pushes for
more aggressive enforcement of wage and hour laws
WASHINGTON (AP) — Workers who don’t trust the boss to keep track of their wages can now do it themselves with a new smart phone application from the Department of Labor. But employers worry that the time sheet app, along with other new initiatives, could encourage even more wage and hour lawsuits. The app lets workers calculate regular work hours, break time and overtime pay to create their own wage records. Department officials say the information could prove valuable in a dispute over pay or during a government investigation when an employer has failed to keep accurate records. “This app will help empower workers to understand and stand up for their rights when employers have denied their hardearned pay,” Labor Secretary Hilda Solis said. The app is the latest example of the Obama administration’s push for more aggressive enforcement of wage and hour laws. The agency has hired about 300 more investigators to probe complaints of unpaid work time, lack of overtime pay and minimum wage violations. Last year, the agency began a “Bridge to Justice” program that, for the first time, helps connect aggrieved workers with private lawyers if the department’s Wage and Hour

WORLD Cuba says 310,000 working in private sector jobs
HAVANA (AP) — Cuba says 310,000 people have become licensed independent workers as the gover nment tries to lift a foundering economy by allowing some private-sector activity. An article in Communist Party newspaper Granma says 222,000 of those are new licenses issued since October. It cites Labor Ministry statistics through April 30. The largest group of new independent workers are in food production and sales, about 50,000. Employees of private businesses are second with 39,000. About 14,000 have transportation licenses that let them operate taxis and the like. The article said the largest number of new licenses — 67,000 — were issued in Havana. President Raul Castro launched an initiative last year to loosen state control over the economy.
The free timesheet app is compatible with both the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Division is too busy to handle a complaint. As a result, legal experts say, wage and hour compliance has become a leading concern for employers as the new policies help drive up litigation over unpaid wages, also known as wage theft. “The gover nment is focusing on it like never before,” said Gerald Maatman, an employer -side labor lawyer based in Chicago. “I think the mantra is kind of, ‘All enforcement, all the time, 24/7.”’ Workers brought a record number of wage and hour suits against employers last year, according to an analysis of court filings by Maatman’s firm, Seyfarth Shaw. Nearly 6,800 such suits were filed in 2010, about 700 more than the previous year. Most were collective or class actions. “The concern is that the Department of Labor is putting a lot more attention into this area and employers, at the same time, are putting more hours, more money and more work into auditing and complying with wage and hour laws,” Maatman said. “It’s turning into somewhat of a fulltime job.”
S&P: Italy ratings outlook negative on debt fears
ROME (AP) — Standard & Poors cut its ratings outlook for Italy’s debt from stable to negative Saturday, citing the country’s poor growth prospects and concerns about the government’s ability to reduce public borrowing. The revision means there’s a one-in-three chance that Italy’s debt ratings could be downgraded in the next two years, raising fears that the debt crises that have struck Greece, Portugal and Ireland could be threatening Italy. But with a ratings outlook still at A+/negative, Italy remains in far better shape than Greece, which had its debt grade ratings dowgraded to junk status Friday by the Fitch agency. In a statement, S&P said Italy’s current growth prospects were “weak” and that there was a faltering commitment on the part of the government to undertake necessary reforms to revive the econoomy. It cited “potential political gridlock” as a concern for Italy’s finances and predicted weaker growth than the current estimated GDP of 1.3 percent over the 2011-2014 period.

DEAR ABBY: My sister is having a baby, and we’re wondering if there is an acceptable way to let people know that she wouldn’t mind getting used items as gifts — especially the “big” things. No one in our family is well off, but this is her first child and she does need stuff. Would a note in the shower invitation be tacky? In this money-saving time, I think our idea is a good one. How do we convey the message? LIKES “LIKE-NEW” IN OHIO DEAR LIKES “LIKE-NEW”: I’m glad you asked, because a note in the shower invitation would be tacky. The way that message should be conveyed is verbally, when prospective guests ask what the mother-tobe needs. However, before your sister uses a secondhand toy or nursery equipment, it would be a good idea to check the website run by the Consumer Product Safety Commission to make certain the item hasn’t been the subject of a safety recall.

His family blamed me for not trying to wrestle a loaded gun from him. (I know I did the right thing.) Dad’s family cut Mother and me off completely. Mom always had a problem with drinking, but it became worse after Dad killed himself. The last five years have been spent putting my life on hold to pick up the pieces. Mom loses jobs for being drunk, is all but blacklisted in the city she lives in and is often short of rent money. If I give her money to pay her rent, she blows it on alcohol. She’ll sleep with strangers for money when she’s facing eviction. It kills me knowing the mother who loved me is going to eventually end up on the street, but I can’t be her mother anymore. I didn’t have a childhood because I was always research! Having had five children, three of whom are boys, I have a question/problem that I have never encountered before.

Oregon-California Trails Assn. film premieres in Casper Roswell Daily Record
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) â€” The filming began far from the city lights the teenagers knew, surrounded by nothing but dirt and sagebrush. At Prospect Hill in Natrona County, where 19th-century wagon trail ruts remain visible, 24 kids ages 12 to 17 got their first look at the unfamiliar territory that would be home for the next two weeks. They came from Boston, Denver, Sacramento, Oregon, Texas and Wyoming to experience what life was like for pioneers traveling the Oregon and California trails. Producers wanted the experience to be authentic. So they took away cell phones, iPods and other electronics. The teens traded T -shirts and shorts for dresses, long pants and bonnets.
They walked 65 miles in the summer of 2008 with a film crew in tow. The result is â€œIn Pursuit of a Dream,â€? a film tracing the teensâ€™ journey through Wyoming and Oregon. It made its Casper premiere Friday and Saturday with three free public screenings hosted by the National Historic T rails Center Foundation. Planning for the project began nearly two years before filming. The national Oregon-California Trails Association received a donation from a member who wanted a video made to tell the story of life on the trails between 1840 and 1869, said Encampment-based writer Candy Moulton, who served as a writer and producer of the film.
Moulton and director Bob Noll met with foundation members to discuss how to best tell the story in a new way. The two had experience, previously producing videos for Casperâ€™s Trails Center. Focusing on young people would present that fresh viewpoint they were looking for, Moulton said. â€œThere had not been a documentary film that was from that perspective,â€? she said. â€œItâ€™s the same story, but you get a different perspective when youâ€™re a different age.â€? Moulton said it was an easy choice from there to decide to place moder n teens on the trails. Doing so would replicate the fear, trepidation and excitement the pioneers would have felt back then, she said.
The underlying goal of the film was to bolster interest among young people in trail history and preservation, Moulton said. More than 140 teens auditioned at casting calls held in several cities around the country. To walk the trails, Moulton had to get permission from private and public landowners. Volunteers made period clothing. A crew of about a dozen joined the team. The film was not scripted, but Moulton did plan and write in scenarios the participants would encounter to replicate the pioneer experience: a departure; separating of the wagon trains; and meeting fur traders, Shoshone Indians, Mormon handcart companies, a

snake oil trader and topographical engineers mapping America. More than a dozen re-enactors participated in the filming. After several days of walking, Moulton started to notice changes in the teens. â€œYou become a part of the trail, and it becomes part of you,â€? she said. â€œYou begin to see things that you usually just overlook.â€? â€œ... After a while, youâ€™re just in the moment.â€? Along the way, the teens had to overcome the stress and physical challenges of walking 50 miles in the heat and altitude of Wyoming. They went days without showering and learned to cook. Participants completed the trip in Oregon, walking an additional 15 miles there.
An early version of the film was screened in 2009, a final version completed last year. â€œIn Pursuit of a Dreamâ€? has won awards at film festivals in Hollywood, Houston and Oregon, in addition to an Oregon Heritage Award and the Wester n Writers of America 2010 Spur Award for best documentary. Retired Casper teacher Kim Merchant led a team and wagon during the filming and taught the teens about the trails. In just 14 days, he watched them mature. Many gained new confidence and let go of their fear of trying something new. â€œThey became caretakers for each other,â€? Merchant said. â€œThey developed close friendships, probably lifelong bonds.â€?

New epitaphs for dead in O.K. Corral shootout
TOMBSTONE, Ariz. (AP) — Past Boothill Graveyard and around the bend where Arizona 80 becomes Fremont Street, a larger-thanlife statue of a man rises from a low sandstone pedestal. Clad in a duster and broad-brimmed hat, a sawed-off shotgun over one shoulder, Wyatt Earp stands guard at the entrance to this dusty town that calls itself “too tough to die.” Since the Oct. 26, 1881, “gunfight at the O.K. Corral,” the famed frontier lawman has loomed large over this former boomtown. The silver deposits that gave birth to the city have long since been played out, but Tombstone has survived largely by mining the legend of the West’s most infamous shootout. And in popular culture, the Earps have always been the good guys; the McLaurys and Clantons, the bad guys. But something peculiar has happened at the O.K. Corral: The white hats and the black hats have all gotten a bit grayer. Hanging on the stucco wall surrounding the little amphitheater where the fusillade is re-enacted daily is a tiny bronze plaque. Unpretentious and easy to miss, it is dedicated, not to the badge-wearing Earps or their tubercular friend, John Henry “Doc” Holliday, but to the memory of brothers Frank and Tom McLaury — two of the three men who died that day. Beneath oval portraits of the two is a short, but enigmatic epitaph: “One owes respect to the living, but to the dead, one owes nothing but the truth.” To movie-goers who thought they knew the real story of the O.K. Corral, the McLaury clan’s message is unmistakable. “The stars of the gunfight were the winners,” says Pam Potter of Mountain Center, Calif., the brothers’ great-grand-niece. Two new books seek to even the score a bit. “In no way did the shootout represent a clearly defined duel to the death between Good and Evil,” says former journalist Jeff Guinn, author of the justreleased “The Last Gunfight: The Real Story of the Shootout at the O.K. Corral — And How It Changed the American West.” ‘‘But the poor McLaurys have gotten short shrift all these years, and they don’t deserve it.” Paul L. Johnson agrees. “They weren’t angels,” says the New Yorker, whose childhood fascination with the gunfight has resulted in “The McLaury Brothers of Arizona: An O.K. Corral Obituary,” currently being vetted by the University of North Texas Press. “Innocent’s a hard word to apply, because they were complicit in the various illegal dealings going on. ... It’s this nuance business.” The shootout lasted just 30 seconds. But its echoes continue to reverberate 130 years later. The immediate cause of the gunfight was Police Chief Virgil Earp’s attempt to enforce the local ordinance against carrying firear ms. But Guinn’s research reveals that tensions between the Earps and the cowboys had deep roots. The McLaurys came to the San Pedro Valley from Iowa in 1877 for the promise of cheap and abundant grazing land. The Earps, particularly Wyatt, followed a couple of years later with dreams of cashing in on the silver boom. In a series of movies — starting in 1934 with “Frontier Marshal,” based on Stuart N. Lake’s flattering and deeply flawed biography of the same title, continuing with John Ford’s “My Darling Clementine” in 1946 and Kevin Costner’s “Wyatt Earp” in 1994 — the Earps have come across as straight-

shooting, law-and-order types. But Guinn says it wasn’t that simple. Never mentioned are Wyatt’s own brushes with horse theft and misappropriation of funds, or his time working in the floating brothels in Peoria, Ill., Guinn says. Also omitted is the fact that Wyatt’s and at least one of his brothers’ “wives” were convicted prostitutes. “He (Wyatt) broke jail on a charge of horse theft back in Indian territory as a young man,” he says. “Technically, he was a fugitive from the law his entire life. Nobody out in the West was completely pristine.” Wyatt had a well-earned reputation for toughness from his days as a deputy in the Kansas boomtowns of Dodge City and Wichita, preferring to “buffalo” — or pistol whip — his adversaries rather than shooting them. But while those methods worked with the itinerant cow-town populations, they didn’t sit well with the “much more permanent” residents of Tombstone, says Johnson. Wyatt had recovered some stolen Army mules from the McLaury ranch. And it is widely believed that the brothers were fencing rustled Mexican cattle for the Clantons and others. But Guinn and Johnson argue they were no worse than other local ranchers trying to feed the insatiable appetites of the U.S. Army and Tombstone’s burgeoning population. The Earps were Republicans, while Cochise County Sheriff Johnny Behan and members of the cowboy faction were members of Democratic Party, the one more closely aligned with former Confederates. Wyatt desperately wanted Behan’s job — and its lucrative taxcollecting duties — and saw a crackdown on the lawless cowboys as a way to achieve that goal, Guinn says. Most historians agree that Ike Clanton was the fight’s chief instigator. He had been drinking the night before and into the mor ning, and was going around town threatening to kill the Earps the next time he saw them. Virgil Earp arrested Ike on Oct. 26, but he was quickly released after paying a fine. Adding to the tension: The Earps had publicly pistol-whipped both Clanton and Tom McLaury in the hours before the gunfight. The McLaurys were about to leave for Iowa to attend the wedding of their sister, Sarah Caroline — Pam Potter’s great-grandmother. They stuck around Tombstone just a little too long. One common misconception is where the shootout took place. While the Clantons and McLaurys were hanging out at the corral, the confrontation actually began in a vacant lot several doors east of the back entrance on Fremont Street, beside C.S. Fly’s photo studio and boarding house. Ike Clanton and Tom McLaury had checked their pistols in town, but Frank McLaury and Ike’s younger
brother, Billy, were carrying six-shooters. When Chief Earp — with brothers Wyatt and Morgan, and a shotgun-toting Holliday in tow — ordered them to throw up their hands, all hell broke loose. When the smoke and dust cleared, Billy Clanton and the McLaurys lay dead. The only men not injured were Wyatt and Ike Clanton, who fled as the shooting started. It is unclear who fired first. Initially, public opinion sided with the Earps. The Daily Epitaph, run by Republican mayor and Earp supporter John Clum, ran the story under the headline, “EARP BROTHERS JUSTIFIED.” “The feeling among the best class of our citizens is that the Marshal (the town fathers had recently changed the title to police chief, Guinn says, in an
Doc Holliday, 1881, after the gunfight at the O.K. Corral.
attempt to seem more cosmopolitan) was entirely justified in his efforts to disarm these men, and that being fired upon they had to defend themselves which they did most bravely,” Clum wrote. “If the present lesson is not sufficient to teach the cow-boy element that they cannot come into the streets of Tombstone, in broad daylight, armed with six-shooters and Henry rifles to hunt down their victims, then the citizens will most assuredly take such steps to preserve the peace as will be forever a bard to further raids.” The Epitaph was an Associated Press client, and it was Clum’s pro-Earp version of events that readers across the country got first. Locally, reactions were more mixed. The day after the shootout, three open caskets sat in the funeral parlor window under a sign that read, “MURDERED IN THE STREETS OF TOMBSTONE.” More than 300 mourners on foot, 22 carriages, and dozens of riders on horseback accompanied the bodies to Boothill, while another 2,000 citizens lined the route, says Guinn. Ike Clanton succeeded in obtaining murder warrants, and there was a monthlong preliminary hearing in which Sheriff Behan testified for the prosecution. While Justice Wells Spicer agreed there was credible evidence that at least one of the dead — Tom McLaury — was unarmed, he concluded that the killings were “a necessary act, done in the discharge of an official duty.” The Earps and Holliday, Spicer ruled, “saw at once the dire necessity of giving the first shot to save themselves from certain death. They acted; their shots were ef fective, and this alone saved all the Earp party from being slain.” This was not the end of the saga of the Earps. When Virgil Earp was partially crippled in a December 1881 assassination attempt, Wyatt took his place as deputy U.S. marshal. After younger brother Morgan’s murder in March 1882, Wyatt went on the notorious “vendetta ride” that resulted in the killings of cowboys Frank Stilwell, Florentino “Indian Charlie” Cruz, “Curly Bill” Brocious

This mid-1880’s photo is the only known period photograph of the site of the start of the O.K. Corral gunfight in an alley between Allen and Fremont streets in Tombstone, Ariz. At right is photographer C.S. Fly’s home and boarding house. While popular culture has tended to lionize the badge-wearing Earps, two new books on the West’s most famous gunfight suggest there were no clear-cut “good guys” and “bad guys” on Oct. 26, 1881. and, some believe, Johnny Ringo. Wyatt lit out for Colorado. Behan filed murder charges against the former lawman, but the governor refused to extradite. The Earps may have won the national public relations battle, but they were essentially finished in Tombstone. Tombstone has survived, says Guinn, “by offering a very simplistic, black-andwhite, almost cartoonish version of events.” Women in bustles and men sporting six-shooters stroll the plank sidewalks along Allen Street. Next door to the original O.K. Corral office, tourists can purchase T-shirts and fake marshal’s badges, catch a Tombstone documentary at the Historama narrated by late horror actor Vincent Price, then head down to the Crystal Palace Saloon for “Buffalo Burgers Good Whiskey (and) Tolerable Water.” “It’s like a B-movie set,” says Guinn. “You can’t blame the people there for doing it. ... If you go to Dis-
neyland, you suspend disbelief that a large mouse is really your host and will have his picture taken with you.” A docent at the O.K. Corral of fers a balanced account of the gunfight. But the overall focus is still very much on the Earps and Holliday. “I mean, you go into Tombstone and you can find mugs and T -shirts with Wyatt and Doc,” says Potter, who has represented the McLaurys for the History Channel and just about anyone else who’ll listen. “And the only pictures you can find of Tom and Frank are the coffin photo.” Bob Love, whose family has owned the gunfight site since 1963, says the truth is more interesting. But, he concedes, “It’s harder to market.” “If you’ve ever traveled, by the after noon you’re tired, you’ve seen a lot of stuf f and you can only process some much information,” says Love, who put up the plaque of the McLaury brothers several
years ago at the behest of their descendants. “So, yes, I think people would like simple, straightforward kinds of history. And this is not simple, straightforward.” Every day — twice daily most weekends — players re-enact the shootout in a little open-air theater behind the livery and feed lot’s office, not far from the actual site. Stephen Keith, who portrays Holliday as a swaggering drunken, dandy, says he structured the play as “a Greek tragedy with cowboy hats and six-guns.” “Basically, I wrote the play as a kind of counter to the nor mal thing,” says Keith, who’s been staging the play there for four years. The Clantons and, especially, the McLaurys “are always targets in the movie, you know. That’s all they’re there for. And so I say that they’re real people. They had lives; they had girlfriends and issues and everything else.” Keith admits to having taken copious poetic license. The play spends a lot of time on an alleged dalliance between Wyatt’s niece, Hattie Earp, and one of the McLaurys, giving the playwright his Wild West version of the Capulets and Montagues. But the play at least acknowledges the historical ambiguity. At show’s end, Doc, acting now as Greek chorus, picks up his dusty cloak and addresses the audience directly: “A tombstone marks each fallen head, And graven there to see, The charge of murder, made with lead, And murder it may be.”

Schwarzenegger revamps his image once again D2 Sunday, May 22, 2011
LOS ANGELES (AP) — For 35 years, Arnold Schwarzenegger has been carefully crafting his public image, from Austrian bodybuilder and international action star to family man and Republican politician. Now, with his split from Maria Shriver and revelations that he fathered a child with a member of his housekeeping staff, where does Schwarzenegger go from here? Can he have a future either in politics or film, and how does he once again reshape his image, especially in the eyes of female fans? “His biggest problem as an action star has nothing to do with being an adulterer. It has to do with being 63 years old and physically wrecked — unless they’re going to make ‘Terminator 6: The Golden Years,”’ said David Leibowitz, a Phoenix-based public relations and crisis communications consultant. “The love child is almost the least of his worries.” For decades, though, Schwarzenegger was the safest of box-office bets, with his bulging, muscular physique and his quippy, punny one-liners. The “Terminator” movies alone have made more than $1 billion worldwide — most of that outside the United States. “For me, he has never been a serious action star, but rather a sort of parody of himself,” said Ali Arikan, chief film critic for the Turkish website Dipnot.tv and Roger Ebert contributor. “He had that wink in his eye even in earlier, more somber stuff like ‘Conan the Barbarian.’ In fact, when he tried to be more serious, as with 1999’s turgid ‘End of Days,’ it was risible: nothing more hilarious than seeing Arnie ‘act!’ So, he’s basically been this goofy clown, shrewd and with great intelligence about his career, but a clown nonetheless.” Shrewd indeed. Around the movie work, this “clown” began adding some serious yet varied cred to the script, including roles as President Ronald Reagan’s fitness guru, a campaigner for George W. Bush, and a founding backer with Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore in the Planet Hollywood restaurant chain. Then, as Schwarzenegger’s movie glory days began waning, he revamped his image again and became the improbable

governor of California in a 2003 recall election. Having a Kennedy heiress by his side certainly didn’t hurt, despite the couple’s disparate political leanings and even through claims that Schwarzenegger had groped other women. As former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown once put it, “Maria has been much more of a benefit to Arnold than Arnold has been to Maria.” Schwarzenegger often said being governor was the best job in the world, one he would have enjoyed holding longer had there not been term limits. While in office, his highly choreographed, stage-managed appearances often seemed more like Hollywood productions than political forums. With Gov. Schwarzenegger, opportunities for image enhancement were seldom missed. There was even talk about repealing the citizenship law to allow Schwarzenegger to run for president. But his standing with voters was rocky throughout his governorship as the political neophyte sought to figure out where he stood on a host of divisive issues. Schwarzenegger’s approval ratings plummeted during the 2005 special election in which he placed several conservative measures on the ballot, all of which voters resoundingly rejected. With

Shriver’s help, he apologized and reinvented himself once more as a political moderate, winning easy re-election in 2006. During his second term, Schwarzenegger made bi-partisan friendships in the state Legislature and after signing legislation to restrict California’s greenhouse gas emissions, he became a leader in the green energy cause. But he was elected on a promise to fix California’s chronic budget woes, and despite his best efforts, he soon gave in to the gimmickry and maneuvering that have been hallmarks of budget deal-making in Sacramento. He was seen as largely failing to accomplish his mandate, and his approval rating fell to 25 percent as he left office in 2010. Lately, he’s been jet-setting with the likes of “Terminator” director James Cameron and announcing he’s ready to relaunch his acting career. But following his separation from Shriver after 25 years of marriage and the damaging baby revelations, he says he’s putting those plans on hold. As the owner of the Carolina Cinemas chain of movie theaters, Bill Banowsky sees Schwarzenegger making a comeback eventually — but only as an action star. “I’d feel great about it if he’s playing a ‘Terminator’ role, if

he’s playing a role in a big action movie. I think he’s going to do very well,” said Banowsky, who also founded the independent distributor Magnolia Pictures. “If he comes out with a romantic comedy as a way to get back in, that would be really challenging for him.” And Arikan of the Turkish website suspects Schwarzenegger still has a future as a global star, despite his age. “The international markets thrive on stars and cling onto them. Just look at the international numbers of ‘The Tourist’ versus the U.S. ones,” he said. “He could churn out action films every few years and expect the equivalent numbers that he got during the latter part of his career, like ‘The 6th Day’ or ‘Eraser.’ But he could never again soar the heights he once did with ‘T2’ or ‘T rue Lies,’ either nationally or internationally.” For now, though, it’s wise for Schwarzenegger to apologize, lay low and focus on his family, which includes his four children with Shriver, said Melanie Ofenloch, a Dallas-based executive vice president at the global public relations firm Weber Shandwick. But it may not be enough. Part of why this transgression seems so appalling to women may be because Shriver herself has devoted so much of her life to championing women’s issues.
