Ofﬁcials Locals chat up Obama at South Valley farm map out e-mail problems by Shaun Griswold email@example.com

Representatives from the Office of the Chief Information Officer discussed University-wide e-mail problems and proposed solutions to these problems in a Faculty Senate meeting held Tuesday. Moira Gerety, UNM’s deputy CIO, proposed two solutions to the Faculty Senate — to work to connect the multiple e-mail systems spread between the Health Sciences Center and main campus, and to move to a uniform e-mail system throughout the University. Gerety’s office recommended the second, she said, because UNM units would be more efficient. “It’s like this: Do we want UNM to be a big strip mall of e-mail options that are all connected or one institution?” she said. Faculty Senate President Richard Wood asked senate representatives to discuss e-mail options with their departments. Mike Campbell, director of PC Systems and Support for UNMH, said a University-wide “internal scan” was taken that included forums, surveys and conversations with faculty members and students to identify e-mail problem solutions. He said 2,606 students, 421 faculty and 764 staff members responded to the survey. UNM’s 40 different e-mail systems use multiple user IDs and passwords, are inconsistent and force users to use external e-mail accounts, survey results said. Campbell said the survey showed that 95 percent of students use their UNM WebMail, but only one third of them forward their UNM WebMail to personal e-mail accounts. The survey said 97 percent of students and faculty are satisfied with their personal e-mail accounts, but only 53 percent of students and 59 percent of faculty are satisfied with their UNM WebMail. Gerety said cost is also an issue, with $900,000 spent each year on e-mail and calendar services, totaling $15 each for the 60,000 NetIDs used in the UNM system. Student Miranda Lee said she doesn’t like UNM e-mail’s layout. She said using the UNM’s e-mail interface is problematic because it’s not always compatible with her Mac computer, something 30 percent of the faculty said is a problem. “I don’t want all my e-mail to go to the UNM e-mail, but now I have to make sure I check both of my email accounts because when an email comes from UNM, it’s usually important,” she said.

President Barack Obama discussed education initiatives that will help college students, answered questions about veterans’ benefits and his religious faith, and attacked Republicans for supporting tax cuts that benefit the top 2 percent of Americans during a “backyard chat” in Bernalillo County Tuesday. “(Republicans’) No. 1 economic priority is retaining $700 billion tax breaks to the wealthiest 2 percent of the country — millionaires and billionaires mostly,” Obama said. “We’ve got these deficits and debt. So we’d have to borrow the $700 billion from China or the Saudis or whoever is buying our debt.” Speaking to a crowd of 40 local residents at the farm of Andy and Etta Cavalier in the South Valley, Obama highlighted three programs that his administration created to assist schools and students in overcoming their achievement problems. Obama praised New Mexico’s Lottery Scholarship program, but he said many college students still rely on Pell Grants to pay for school. “Tens of billions of dollars were going to banks and financial intermediaries who were essentially acting as middlemen for the student loan program, even though it was federally guaranteed,” he said. “So they weren’t taking any risks, but it was passing through them, and they would take — they would skim off tens of billions of dollars of profit.” His solution: a loan program that distributes money directly from the government to students, which he said has saved $60 billion. “More young people across the country are able to get the student loans and the Pell Grants that they need. And starting in 2014, we’re actually going to be able to say to young people that you will never have to pay more than 10 percent of your income in repaying your student loan,” he said. Students who graduate with degrees that lead them into public service careers will be excused of loan debt after 10 years, Obama said in a conference call with student journalists Monday. He also discussed a program called Race to the Top that provides additional funds, about $4 billion, for schools that show exemplary performance. “We’ve ended up seeing 32 states change their laws to reform the system so that the whole education structure works better for our kids and makes it more accountable,” he said. The education conversation was well-received by Etta Cavalier, who has been a New Mexico educator for 36 years. When the White House called her Thursday to inform her that the president was going to stop by her home, she was ecstatic. Her enthusiasm grew when her family had a private conversation with Obama before the event in their kitchen. “We talked about education,” she said.
Junfu Han/ Daily Lobo President Barack Obama discussed his education plan to help U.S. college students during a backyard chat in Albuquerque on Tuesday. The event was part of a national tour that began in New Mexico and ended in Wisconsin. Yet questions during the open session focused on financial concerns. Fredo Chavez and his pregnant partner, Tanya Fitjerrell, own a restaurant in the South Valley. The couple expressed concerns about receiving federal loans from the Small Business Association. But the response Obama gave — tax breaks and lending programs to help small businesses invest in themselves — left the pair satisfied. “It was awesome to see he knows the importance of small business,” Chavez said. Another Albuquerque resident asked the president what he would do to prevent homelessness among veterans, and another thanked Obama for supporting a mortgage modification program that helped save the man’s house from

Group unites in fight against blood cancers by Sofia Sanchez firstname.lastname@example.org
Every four minutes a person is diagnosed with blood cancer, and every 10 minutes someone dies from a form of blood cancer, according to Lobos against Leukemia’s website. With that in mind, the on-campus support group has its first information and planning meeting today at 5:30 p.m. in the SUB’s Cherry/Silver room. Laura Guerrero, president of LAL, said the goal is to educate and promote health at UNM. “We want to make connections with people that have a connection with the cause, show people that they can do something,” she said. “Maybe you can’t change your mother’s diagnosis. Maybe you can’t do the treatment for your child, but you can get involved with LLS, and that’s something.” The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) said 9.5 percent of people stricken by blood cancers will die in 2010. Lobos against Leukemia, an extension of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, raises research funds to combat that statistic.
Karl Benedict, the club’s faculty adviser, said he and his wife raised about $10,000 to aid blood cancer research and patient care. Benedict, who has been involved with LLS since 2008, said having this a club at UNM helps the LLS have a targeted impact on students, faculty and staff. “It seems appropriate that we have a group on campus where we can come together within the UNM community in support of the important work of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society,” he said. Emira Ibrahimpasic, vice president of LAL, said the organization encourages students to pay close attention to their own health. “If you have never been a runner, you can be a runner,” Ibrahimpasic said. “The goal is to charge up students and show students what they can do fight cancer.”
Cheba Hut will donate 12.5 percent of Thursday’s purchases made from 4-9 p.m. to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

foreclosure. In a response that received the most attention, one woman asked Obama, “Why are you a Christian?” According to a Pew Research Center poll released last month, 18 percent of Americans believe Obama is a Muslim. Only 34 percent of those surveyed said Obama is a Christian, and 43 percent said they did not know what Obama’s religion was. “I’m a Christian by choice. My family didn’t — frankly, they weren’t folks who went to church every week. And my mother was one of the most spiritual people I knew, but she didn’t raise me in the church,” Obama said. “So I came to my Christian faith later in life, and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead — being my brothers’ and sisters’ keeper, treating others as they would treat me.” While the gathering was not billed as a political event, Gov. Bill Richardson, Congressman Martin Heinrich (D-NM) and Lt. Governor and gubernatorial candidate Diane Denish were on hand. The town hall was the first event in the president’s day that ended with a rally in Madison, Wis. “His message about creating jobs and what he said politically — it also helps democratic candidates,” Richardson said.

From the web In Tuesday’s, “Tea Party rallies for local support,” by Andrew Lyman, a founding member of the Albuquerque Tea Party said the group is becoming a political force to be reckoned with. Readers chimed in: ‘PencilPusher’ Posted Tuesday “Mr. Daugherty asks how the Tea Party wants to ‘fix’ things. Here’s how: by electing men and women with conservative principles, who understand that balanced budgets, incentives for hard work, removing incentives for no work, respecting human life from conception, respecting traditional marriage, etc. ... will keep America great and make her even greater. The Hoffer quote is a good one, but the necessary condition that Tea Party members have empty lives is just flat wrong.” ‘Northern Sole’ Posted Tuesday “Progressives, you are losing because you are elitists and arrogant to the max. You’re right. The Tea Party is nothing more than the repackaging of conservative ideas under the guise of a ‘new movement,’ after Bush and Co. ran the GOP into the ground. Further, the Tea Party was founded by marketing firms hired by the large corporations that were once the GOP’s principle backers. Being pro-choice and anti-‘special’-privileges-for-heterosexual-marriage, I am very happy to be a part of the Tea Party movement. Its platform of limiting government, which would include not using tax dollars for abortions, is consistent with its overall message.” ‘Damian’ Posted Tuesday “While many of its members do uphold these issues, many attempt to out it at the forefront. I believe that the ever-expanding government is where the real threat lies. The traditional GOP is now attempting to shift its focus to include the idea that it too shares the same values as the TPP. However, we are replacing all these SOBs gradually. It’s about time we get rid of all these crap politicians and move back to a civilization of liberty and prosperity. Let the politicians kiss our asses.” ‘Yeah, Right’ Posted Tuesday “Don’t be so naive. Not to defend the politicians of today, but our alleged Tea Party saviors of today are the ‘crap politicians’ of tomorrow. I guarantee it. Do you really think that people like mentally ill reporter-dodger Sharron Angle, anti-masturbation advocate Christine O’Donnell, barely veiled racist Rand Paul, farm-subsidy-accepting-small-government advocate and hypocrite Joe Miller, womanizing-crackpot Carl Paladino and publicity-seeker-at-all-costs Sarah Palin really have the force of character and dignity to lead our country ‘back to prosperity’? They are every bit (and often more) ridiculous, morally flawed and intellectually challenged as the GOPers you would have them replace.”

The existential crisis of quitting
“The best alternative is to crawl underneath your bed, pull a blanket over yourself and rock back and forth.”
by Chris Quintana
Daily Lobo Culture Editor So when you’re trying to quit smoking, there are some general guidelines that you must follow if you stand a chance at actually quitting. Being in the process myself, I have decided to offer the little guidance I can: First, stop smoking. This step is actually the most critical, as most smokers are under the impression that you can stop smoking while continuing to go outside and light cigarettes. I’ve had this discussion several times with a smoker about ceasing our habits as we both lit up cigarettes, smoked them and then realized we were still pretty damn far from actually quitting. If you can manage to stop smoking, the next step is pretty helpful, too. Second, don’t go out into public. This step actually has a lot of good merits behind it: Interacting with other people while trying to stop smoking is unbearable. No one ever has anything interesting to say unless it has to do with cigarettes. Often, this frustration in conversation will lead the smoker to hate everyone who happens to talk to him or her, and thus increase

from there. Fifth, after regaining consciousness and crawling out from underneath your bed, start to do normal human activities while not thinking about smoking. True, at first, it might be hard to approach that morning bowl of cereal or cozying up under the covers without the comfort of a burning cigarette, but if you try long enough the pain will eventually dull to the point where everything sucks a little less. Hopefully, you will be able to go about your life without glaring angrily at every passing smoker or standing wistfully in front of the cigarette wall at Walgreens, but probably not. You might stare in envy at your friends all leaving for a smoke break and wonder, ‘Is life really a whole lot better now that I have quit smoking?’ And then you’ll Google photos of lung cancer and realize you made the right choice, even if you can’t admit it to yourself. Later, you might even start to feel better when you’re no longer having nicotine withdrawals, and you’ll have the small triumph in your life of having quit smoking to forever hold onto. This brings me to the next and final step. Sixth, after quitting smoking, don’t start smoking again. This step seems obvious, but it’s a mistake a lot of people make. Just because you have stopped smoking for a while does not mean that you can start having cigarettes willy-nilly. In fact, it probably means you should avoid nicotine-related substances for a good while, until you have a good hold over your addiction. And if you ever start slipping again, you should probably stop, or begin at step one. Also, you may want to avoid writing opinion pieces about quitting smoking. That won’t help you quit smoking either.

the desire for a cigarette even more, which we are trying to avoid. Furthermore, everyone in public smokes when you are trying to stop, and that’s just the way it works. The kid down the block, your grandmother and the doctor telling you to stop smoking will all blow delicious secondhand smoke in your face, which, of course, will make you only think of cigarettes. This leads us to the next step. Third, while staying cloistered in your home, do not enjoy any form of media. Everything has cigarettes when you are trying to quit. All the movies feature badasslooking smokers. Songs are only about the last cigarette. Good books always have a main or secondary character drowning his woes in Marlboro smoke. If you enjoy media while trying to quit smoking, you will end up smoking. The best alternative is to crawl underneath your bed, pull a blanket over yourself and rock back and forth. Fourth, try to stop breathing while you’re underneath your bed rocking back and forth. Every time you will inevitably think that breath might be better used for inhaling smoke, which again, we are trying to avoid here. There are a number of easy ways to stop breathing. One involves a pillow, another one involves a plastic bag, and you can even use your hands, but the main thing to remember is to cut off air to the lungs. Once you’ve done that, it’s likely you will do one of two things: blackout or die. If you die, you are one lucky bastard. You have quit smoking, and no one can say anything else to make you want a cigarette ever again, but on the downside you are also dead. This decision is really something you will have to choose for yourself. A lot of you will choose the death option, understandably, but for the few of you who remain here’s where to go
Follow these three steps today for a better tomorrow at UNM Editor, I have a three-pronged proposal for the University budget shortfall and the current football dilemma: 1. Fire Athletics Director Paul Krebs, and don’t hire another athletics director for two or more years. Since President Schmidly is such a believer in the “Athletics as the University’s
front porch philosophy,” have him assume the directorship of the department until state economics improve. Surely, in times when we are all to tighten our belts and work harder, the president will want to spearhead the effort. This move would save enough money to pay the GAs and TAs who are about to be fired. 2. Fire head coach Mike Locksley. UNM will still have to pay him, but it will save money on lawsuits, cover-ups and anger management classes, as well as save face with the alumni who are actively embarrassed by
Locksley. He can’t coach, but bullies and intimidates all too well. 3. Promote one of the assistant coaches to head coach. The football situation really cannot get much worse, so why don’t we promote from within and give a worker in the trenches a chance? If he succeeds in improving the program, reward him generously when we can finally quit paying Locks for being pugnacious and incompetent. Sharon Karpinski Community member

Fernando Llano / AP Photo Opposition leader and governor of Miranda State, Henrique Capriles, left, speaks during a news conference in Caracas, Venezuela, Tuesday. Capriles dismissed Chavezâ€™s challenge for a recall vote following congressional elections in which opposition candidates made significant gains.
Chavez opposers gain momentum by Fabiola Sanchez Associated Press
CARACAS, Venezuela â€” A prominent opposition leader ruled out seeking a referendum to try to unseat Hugo Chavez, advising the president Tuesday to focus instead on governing the country until he is up for re-election in 2012. Henrique Capriles dismissed Chavezâ€™s challenge for a recall vote following congressional elections in which opposition candidates made significant gains. â€œWe are not going to waste time or go around gathering signatures or go around doing what the president wants us to do,â€? Capriles said at a news conference alongside some of the victorious opposition candidates. On Monday, Chavez dared the opposition to mount a recall vote if they believe their support to be strong enough. The president defeated one recall attempt in 2004. But Capriles said that after the oppositionâ€™s strong showing in the National Assembly vote Sunday, Chavez should instead â€œdedicate himself to governing.â€? When asked if he plans to run for president in 2012, Capriles said: â€œIâ€™m not a candidate nor a precandidate.â€? Capriles is governor of Miranda state, which includes part of Caracas, and is one of the most popular leaders in the opposition. He said he thinks the opposition should hold a primary to choose a single candidate to face Chavez in 2012. Capriles called the legislative elections a clear victory for the opposition, noting that while the
government held on to 97 of the 165 seats, the opposition was on par with Chavezâ€™s candidates in the overall popular vote. Chavez said his candidates won about 5.4 million votes, against about 5.3 million for opposition candidates. Electoral officials have not released total counts of the popular vote obtained by each camp. Capriles also criticized new electoral rules that gave Chavez allies a wide margin in the National Assembly even though the popular vote was so tight. An electoral law passed by the Chavista-controlled Assembly redrew some districts and gave heavier representation to rural areas where the president is most popular. â€œIt doesnâ€™t reflect the proportionality of the vote,â€? Capriles said. Chavez angrily berated a journalist Monday when she asked him about the electoral changes and the popular vote. â€œBy the system, it isnâ€™t directly proportional,â€? Chavez said, noting that similar rules yield similar results in many countries. Chavez also accused the opposition of putting a dishonest spin on the outcome. He called it a victory for his party and said the results in legislative district elections do not necessarily mirror what would happen in a presidential election. Nevertheless, Capriles advised Chavez to realize that he faces a renewed and strengthening opposition. â€œA new Venezuela is being built,â€? Capriles said. Chavez remains popular after nearly 12 years in office but has seen his popularity slide below 50 percent in recent polls as

pockets of PG&E, FEMA should at least be a backstop if deep pockets are not there.â€? However, FEMA will reimburse California for up to 75 percent of the firefighting expenses connected to the blast. San Bruno Mayor Jim Ruane said he planned to meet with federal officials Tuesday to request additional funds. The governorâ€™s office is weighing whether to appeal the decision within the next
30 days. In Washington, federal investigators said laboratory tests on segments of pipeline, which they hope will shed light on the cause, were scheduled to begin later this week. The National Transportation Safety Board confirmed it was looking into a brief equipment failure that occurred miles away from the blast site as a possible contributing factor.
Venezuelans increasingly express disenchantment with problems including violent crime, a lackluster economy and 30 percent inflation. Chavez has said he is already warming up for the presidential vote in two years. In 2009, he won a referendum eliminating term limits.

One is — not the loneliest — but the winning number. The UNM men’s golf team won its first tournament since spring 2009 on Tuesday, with a onestroke victory over Colorado State in the inaugural 2010 Mark Simpson Colorado Invitational in Erie, Colo. UNM shot an 859 compared to CSU’s second-place 860. The Lobos, who were the highest-ranked squad in the 14-team field, fended off the Rams down the final stretch. “We’re obviously very happy with the way our guys played this week,” head coach Glen Millican said. “We got off to kind of a rough start in the first round, as we shot 12-over par, and that was (on Monday) morning. That afternoon, we played our second round. We had a great effort, and the team stayed real patient after that not-so-successful morning round.” Helping fight off defending MWC champion CSU, senior Travis Ross finished second in the

The UNM men’s soccer team suffered a cataclysmic knock Saturday. Senior defender and midfielder Ryan Farquharson suffered a season-ending injury in the Lobos’ 1-0 loss to Dartmouth in Hanover, N.H. Fa rq u h a r s o n broke his right leg, putting a damper on his Lobo career. Head coach Jeremy Fishbein said it was a disturbing Ryan Farquharson sight. “(He) snapped his leg in two,” Fishbein said. “It was the worst injury I have ever been associated with as a coach.” Farquharson didn’t make the trip back with the team and had emergency surgery Sunday morning. Early in the season, Farquharson started all seven of UNM’s regular-season games. He scored one goal on three shots on goal. Junior forward Michael Green said not having Farquharson will affect the Lobos.

“It’s good to know that those guys have the ability to play well together,” he said. “You know, they compete against some of the best teams.” Ross said it was great to beat the Rams, even though they lost a couple of members from their championship squad from last year. “We maybe have a little bit more experience this year,” he said. “But they are the one team that we really wanted to beat this week more than anything.

The Lobos had a four-stroke lead heading into the final round of the tournament. “We were in a great position coming in,” Millican said. “Colorado State did make a really strong charge, as they shot eight under (Tuesday), but it was a great tournament. I am just really proud of the way our guys hung in there the whole time and gave themselves a chance to win.”

tournament, outdueled only by San Jose State’s Mark Hubbard. Hubbard shot a final-round 70, finishing the tournament with a seven-under par 209 total. It was two strokes better than Ross’ 211. He put together a four-round, five-under par performance on the 7,741-yard course. Ross, who transferred to UNM in 2008 from St. Cloud State in Minnesota, said the team’s victory was a bigger triumph than his second-place standing. “It’s a very big (win), because it’s the first 12-play event that we have won since I have been here,” he said. “It’s awesome because the team really played great, and we have got a group of five guys that get along great and everybody contributed. But individually, it was just kind of a bonus, and I try to keep it kind of quiet.” Five Lobos (Ross, Sam Chavez, Tom Carlson, Tom Catlin and Ryan Gay) finished in the top 27 out of 84 golfers in the tournament. Out of the five, Gay finished tied for 27th. Millican said team consistency is necessary to be a successful college golf program.

“It’s tough to lose a player like Farquharson, because he does everything right every day,” he said. “He is a leader, a captain and a guy who leads by example. I mean, we can’t really replace him, but we have guys who are willing to step up. But I don’t
“It gives you the chills to just think of it. The guys were in shock, and I was in shock.” ~Michael Green think it will be of the same caliber because we have to replace a Ryan Farquharson.” Green said the injury was gruesome. “It’s like one of those things you would see on YouTube,” he said. “It gives you the chills to just think of it. The guys were in shock, and I was in shock.” Thus far the team has posted a 3-2-3 record, but Fishbein said Farquharson’s loss is an emotional blow to the team. “It was pretty tough to deal
with that,” he said. “If there was one guy on the team who has maxed out everything, and kind of embodies everything you want out of the student-athlete, in terms of academically, leadership, work ethic and ability, he was the guy.” No matter what, Green said, Farquharson is a part of the team, even though he can’t contribute on the field. “We (picked) him up from the airport as a team,” he said. “Everybody is going to be there and we’re going to welcome him back, because he is still going to be a part of the team. He will be at all the practices and all of the team’s meetings.”

Rays giving away tickets Associated Press Spurred by fan reaction to AllStarâ€™s Evan Longoria criticism of Tampa Bayâ€™s home attendance, the AL East-leading Rays are making 20,000 free tickets available for Wednesday nightâ€™s game against the Baltimore Orioles. Longoria called Mondayâ€™s turnout of just 12,446 for a game in which the Rays had a chance to clinch the second playoff berth in franchise history â€œdisheartening.â€? All-Star pitche David Price weighed in on the subject on Twitter, calling the small crowd â€œembarrassing.â€? Team president Matt Silverman said the club had been discussing the possibility of giving away tickets for the Raysâ€™ home finale, but probably wouldnâ€™t have actually done it if the players hadnâ€™t spoken out. Silverman said the Rays received mixed reaction from fans in phone calls and e-mail. â€œIt was something we had discussed, but I donâ€™t think we would have,â€? Silverman said before Tuesday nightâ€™s game against the Orioles at Tropicana Field.â€?And itâ€™s not about the two players. Itâ€™s about the sentiment expressed by the team throughout the year about the energy that they get from the fans when this place is full. Two years ago when we clinched against Minnesota, the players celebrated with the fans. It was a packed house. Itâ€™s that type of celebration of this season that weâ€™re looking for.â€? Tampa Bay entered Tuesday night with a magic number of one to clinch a playoff berth for the second time in three years. It held a half-game lead over the New york Yankees in the division race, as well as in the chase for the best record in the AL, which means home-field advantage in the playoffs. Attendance has long been an issue for the cost-conscious Rays.

Kathy Willens/ AP Photo Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Evan Longoria called the attendance at Tropicana Field Monday â€œdisheartening, as 12,446 fans turned out. The Rays did clinch the organizationâ€™s second playoff birth Tuesday. Their average of 22,913 through 79 dates, ranked 22nd in the major leagues. Longoria sat out Monday nightâ€™s 4-0 loss to Baltimore with a strained left quadriceps, but didnâ€™t back off in expressing his opinion on the potential clincher drawing the fourth smallest crowd of the season at Tropicana Field. â€œI donâ€™t think thereâ€™s any more time for rationalizations. We figured if we have a chance at the beginning of September, then maybe the fans will come. Now, itâ€™s the end of September, and itâ€™s almost October, and weâ€™re still kind of looking up in the seats and going, â€˜Whereâ€™s everybody?â€™â€? Longoria said.
Bravesâ€™ infielder done for season Associated Press ATLANTA - Atlanta Braves third baseman Martin Prado left Monday nightâ€™s 2-1, 11-inning win over the Florda Marlins in the fifth inning after getting hurt while swinging at a pitch. Prado swung at a 1-1 pitch with runners at first and third and two outs, and hit it back to Florida righthander Alex Sanabia. Prado grabbed his left side and grimaced after taking one step from the batterâ€™s box. Manager Bobby Cox and assistant trainer Jim Lovell helped him to the dugout. He was diagnosed with a left hip pointer and was listed day-to-day. He said he originally injured himself on a diving catch in the fourth inning, then aggravated it when he swung the next inning. Prado said he took two pain pills
and iced down three times. He indicated he was day-to-day although he admitted when he swung he â€œheard a pop and couldnâ€™t run.â€? Cox said he would â€œdefinitely be out a while.â€? Prado, an All-Star, is hitting .307 with 15 home runs and 66 RBIs entering the game. He was replaced by Brooks Conrad â€œWith five games left anytime you lose a guy like Prado itâ€™s not good. Guys will just have to step up,â€? said Brian McCann, who hit a solo home run in the game. â€œConrad can do it. Heâ€™s done it before.â€? For a couple of months, Stephen Strausburg â€œstirred up the baseball world,â€? in his words. Now the Washington Nationals right-hander is embarking on the â€œboringâ€? process of working his way back from reconstructive elbow surgery.

Strasburg’s elbow recovering Associated Press In his first public comments since his Sept. 3 operation, Strasburg said in a conference call from San Diego on Tuesday that he had his cast removed about two weeks ago, has been getting his range of motion back and “should be starting the actual rehab process shortly.” While waiting for that, Strasburg has been doing “some sort of workout every single day” to stay in shape. “I know he’s going to rehab like a monster and put his full effort into it,” Washington general manager Mike Rizzo said. “He’s a hungry player — and he’s a hungry player that’s going to work extremely hard.” The No. 1 pick in the 2009 draft made an electrifying debut for the Nationals on June 8, striking out 14 Pittsburgh Pirates in seven innings
while earning the victory. He went 5-3 with a 2.91 ERA and 92 strikeouts in 12 starts before getting injured last month. “I’m chalking it up as a great season. It’s unfortunate for this to hap-
“I know he’s going to rehab like a monster and put his full effort into it.” ~Mike Rizzo pen. But I stirred up the baseball world well enough that (it) had more people becoming Nats fans. And I know they’re going to be there when I come back in a year,” Strasburg said. “I’m going to work as hard as I possibly can to get back out there
and show everybody what I bring to the table.” He’s been watching the lastplace Nationals’ games, something he said is tough to do, because he wishes he could be playing. Instead, he’s going through what he termed “baseball withdrawal.” Strasburg has been spending time studying toward a degree at San Diego State, which he left after his junior year. He wound up signing a record $15.1 million, four-year contract with the Nationals. His rehabilitation schedule has been outlined in detail, including a specific date when he should be able to throw his next professional pitch, if all goes well. “What they’re telling me is that the more boring it is, the better,” the 22-year-old Strasburg said. “The first few months it’s just all about letting the ligament heal and naturally recover.”
’Melo out: Superstar stays for now by Pat Graham Associated Press
DENVER — Carmelo Anthony is focused on hoops, not the hoopla surrounding his future in Denver. Anthony joined his Nuggets teammates on the first day of training camp Tuesday, calling the court his “safe haven,” a place where he doesn’t have to “deal with all the other stuff.” For now, Anthony remains a member of the Nuggets after a person with knowledge of the discussions said a four-way deal that would have sent Anthony
to New Jersey was “dead.” The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly about the trade. Still, Anthony’s days in Denver could very well be numbered. Anthony’s powder blue jersey, soaked in sweat after a more than two-hour practice, was proof of an honest day’s work Tuesday. The All-Star forward became almost agitated when asked if he might give anything less than 100 percent considering his uncertainty with the team. “I love the game too much to disrespect the game like that,” said Anthony, who averaged 28.2 points last season in leading the Nuggets to their second straight Northwest Division title. “Anytime I step on the court, I’m going to give it my all, regardless of what’s going on, what’s the situation. “This is basketball. I focus on basketball — it’s something I know how to do and I love to do. As far as my effort on the court, nobody can question that.” Nuggets coach George Karl gave Anthony an “A” for his effort after practice, saying he thought his star was “very professional, very mature.” Karl remains hopeful that Anthony will stick around. Anthony has yet to sign off on a three-year, $65 million extension that’s been on the table since June, leading the Nuggets to explore trade options. The potential trade involving Denver, New Jersey, Charlotte and Utah hit a road block over the weekend and then withered when a deal wasn’t reached by an imposed deadline of Tuesday. “The perfect storm in my mind is to keep Melo, convince him that this is the best place for him, that this is where he has to win a championship,” Karl said. Karl made his return to practice Tuesday after missing the end of last season while undergoing treatment for throat and neck
cancer. His voice still raspy, Karl carried around a whistle to get the attention of his players. But he only used it in a joking manner. “It’s fun to be back. It’s fun to get the butterflies,” Karl said. “It’s fun to interact with your basketball family.” Karl couldn’t chat for long — four minutes at a time tops. With such a veteran team, though, he really didn’t need to do much instructing. “All he has to do is say it once,” Anthony said, grinning. “He sounds good, he looks good.” Just how much longer Karl might be coaching Anthony remains unclear. The two are hoping to get together for a chat sometime this week. Anthony has one caveat: The conversation must remain on hoops — no sales pitches. “I want to focus on basketball right now,” Anthony said. “If he wants to sit and talk to me about what to do tomorrow at practice or the next day, then we can sit down and talk about that.” One of the reasons forward Al Harrington signed with Denver over Dallas in July was because of the chance to suit up with Anthony. Even with trade rumors swirling, Harrington, a 13-year veteran, still believes Anthony will stay put. “I’m optimistic,” he said. New Nets coach Avery Johnson hasn’t gotten caught up in the trade speculation and talk, preferring to go about the task of turning around his team. “I know that I love our guys, love the guys who are here,” Johnson said. “We’re not a distracted team at all.” Johnson said first-round draft pick Derrick Favors hasn’t been bothered by the trade talk. Favors was one of the principal players in the Anthony deal. “Favors has been one of our best players so far,” Johnson said. “He’s doing a nice job.”

Horse of the Year retires A by Beth Harris Associated Press
Rachel Alexandra’s undefeated season in 2009 won her Horse of the Year honors and electrified a down-on-its-luck industry. Though the sensational filly is leaving racing’s stage, a future breeding date with another superstar could make things interesting. Having won only two of five races this year, Rachel Alexandra was retired Tuesday, with co-owner Jess Jackson saying it was time to “reward her with a less stressful life.” He said she would be bred to Curlin, the 2007 and 2008 Horse of the Year, at Jackson’s Stonestreet Farm in Lexington, Ky. “Imagine what possibilities those two super horses might produce,” said Jackson, who owns a majority stake in Curlin. The popular 4-year-old Rachel caused quite a stir last year when she won all eight of her races. Ridden by Calvin Borel, she beat fillies by 20 lengths in the Kentucky Oaks and 19 lengths in the Mother Goose Stakes before taking on the boys and winning the Preakness, Haskell Invitational and Woodward Stakes. “The industry is going to miss her,” said Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, who rides Rachel’s rival, Zenyatta. Rachel had 13 wins in 19 starts and earned more than $3.4 million. In her last start, she finished second to Persistently in the Personal Ensign at Saratoga on Aug. 29 in what was her first race at 1 1/4 miles and her only Grade 1 of the year. “As a 3-year-old, she set standards and records that no filly before her ever achieved, and I suspect it will be quite a while before a 3-yearold filly ever equals or surpasses her achievements,” Jackson said. “Although her fans were thrilled by a series of spectacular victories, I believe they, as we, were simply awed time and again by her sheer beauty, courage and athleticism.” Off the track, Jackson used her success to help raise money for
various charitable causes including cancer research by auctioning off items related to Rachel. He said Rachel never returned to her 2009 form despite what he described as “top training and a patient campaign.” Smith was surprised to learn of Rachel’s retirement, although he praised Jackson for putting his horse first. “If he didn’t feel she was running up to par, why keep it up?” the jockey told The Associated Press by phone from California. “You can risk injury. She’ll be great as a mother. We’ll look forward to seeing what they make.” Smith watched all of Rachel’s races. “As quick she was, she had a lot of stamina and she could carry that speed a long ways,” he said. “I know she hasn’t been racing up to her standards as far as having a sensational year. Even in defeat, I thought she’s run very, very well.” Her retirement puts an end to speculation that she and Zenyatta, with an 18-0 career record, would meet on the track. They never did, despite an offer of a $5 million purse if Rachel and Zenyatta raced in the Apple Blossom in April at Arkansas’ Oaklawn Park. Jackson declined, with trainer Steve Asmussen saying Rachel needed more time to get back into racing shape after a six-month layoff. Zenyatta is set to run in Saturday’s $250,000 Lady’s Secret Stakes at her home track of Hollywood Park in Inglewood, Calif. After a spectacular 8-0 season last year, expectations were high for Rachel this season. But she finished second to Zardana in the New Orleans Ladies at the Fair Grounds in March, followed by another narrow loss, to Unrivaled Belle, in the La Troienne a month later at Churchill Downs. That forced Asmussen to rethink his game plan for the filly, who was being pointed toward the Breeders’ Cup in November at Churchill Downs. In June, Rachel won the Grade
Top seed up for grabs in quarterfinal match by Doug Feinberg Associated Press
OSTRAVA, Czech Republic — Usually when the U.S. women’s basketball team faces Australia in the world championship, a medal is at stake. When the rivals play Wednesday night, only the top seed in the quarterfinals will be at risk. Still, the Americans plan to play to win their group. “Tomorrow is going to be like a gold-medal game. I know it is on our end,” U.S. coach Geno Auriemma said. “It’s important to us. There’s no guarantee that either the U.S. or Australia will be in the gold-medal game ... There are some teams that play one way when the game means something and play another way when the game doesn’t mean something. I think tomorrow, you got two teams that really want to win and really want to beat each other.” The Aussies seemed to have a different take on Wednesday’s
matchup of unbeaten teams. They see it as a chance to evaluate where they stack up against the Americans when both teams are at full strength. The two powerhouse teams split a pair of exhibition games in the last month when neither team had a full roster. “The result doesn’t matter really,” Australia coach Carrie Graf said. “Everything isn’t riding on that game. You have to be intelligent about how you play the tournament.” Australia star Lauren Jackson, who has never beaten the U.S., found it strange to be playing them before the medal rounds. “It is weird, it’s a different format having us crossover,” said Jackson, who plays for the WNBA champion Seattle Storm. “It’s weird playing them earlier. It’s a good thing as well. America is a powerhouse and it’s a test to see where we are, what we need to work on.”
2 Fleur de Lis at Churchill by 10 1/2 lengths, a convincing win but not against the strongest competition. In July, she won the Lady’s Secret by three lengths at New Jersey’s Monmouth Park after fighting off a challenge by a filly named Queen Martha. Asmussen trained both Rachel and Curlin for Jackson, the founder and owner of Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates in Northern California who co-owned Rachel with Harold McCormick. “I have been blessed to have been part of history,” Asmussen said. “We are all very fortunate that Rachel carried the banner following Curlin’s amazing success story. The fans adored her. We all did. She had the most fluid and beautiful stride of any horse I have ever seen. It’s been quite a ride.” Alex Waldrop, president and CEO of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, said Rachel’s performance as a 3-year-old “was nothing short of historic, both for its flawlessness and its ambition.” “Rachel Alexandra provided countless thrills to fans all around the world, and all of us now undoubtedly look forward to the racing exploits of her offspring,” he said. Meanwhile, the Fair Grounds in Louisiana said it would run the Rachel Alexandra Stakes in her honor on Feb. 19. The $150,000 race for 3-year-old fillies over 1 1-16 miles was previously known as the Silverbulletday Stakes, a name that will be used for another race.

the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles, declined comment when asked about whether Lim was appearing before the grand jury. Last week, Stephanie McIlvain, a longtime Armstrong friend, spent a day testifying before the grand jury. Her attorney later said McIlvain told the panel she had never heard Armstrong admit that he used banned substances. McIlvain was present in the hospital room where Armstrong was being treated for cancer in 1996, when former teammate Frankie Andreu and his wife, Betsy, claim the cyclist told doctors he used performance-enhancing drugs. Armstrong has denied that he cheated — or that he made such a statement — and McIlvain has previously testified in a civil case that she didn’t hear Armstrong admit to doping in that conversation.

LOS ANGELES — A staff member of Lance Armstrong’s Team RadioShack, who also has a connection to Floyd Landis, is expected to testify Wednesday before a grand jury investigating allegations of doping in professional cycling, said a person with knowledge of the probe. Allen Lim, an exercise physiologist whom Landis said helped him cheat with doping during his career, was called to appear before the panel in Los Angeles, according to the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the investigation was ongoing. Lim would be the latest witness in a probe that has featured some of cycling’s biggest names,

including Armstrong, Landis and Tour de France winner Greg LeMond. Lim, who joined Team RadioShack for the 2010 season, has denied the allegations by Landis, who also accused seven-time Tour winner Armstrong of doping. Armstrong became a more important figure in the probe this spring after Landis dropped longstanding denials and admitted he used performance-enhancing drugs. In doing so, he accused Armstrong and others of systematic drug use. Landis won the Tour in 2006 but was stripped of his title for doping. Landis also made his accusations in an e-mail, and Lim was mentioned in it. Armstrong has vehemently denied the accusations, and his attorney has described Landis as a “serial liar.” Thom Mrozek, a spokesman for
