Anyone can claim to be able to do something, but stepping up and being able to deliver is an entirely different thing. During Roswell’s first game on Saturday at the Lady Rockets Tournament, the Coyotes found themselves down 1-0 when coach Samantha Ward turned to her players and asked who can score. Freshman Lrissa Cobos piped up that she could and delivered with three goals in a 4-3 Coyote win over Santa Teresa. ...

Ohanas have Fun in the Sun at Spring River Zoo CHAUNTE’L POWELL RECORD STAFF WRITER
Just about everyone in Roswell knows that Ohana means “family,” thanks in large part to the Sweet Leilani’s Kipuka Hula, and Saturday people had the opportunity see the fun activities Roswell has to offer their Ohanas. Ohana Fun in the Sun took place at the Spring River Park & Zoo and Marla Higginbotham, the new director of the Sweet Leilani’s Kipuka Hula said this year was all about fun activities for families. “We decided this year to showcase what makes fun in Roswell for families,” she said. “So we asked all different kinds of community members to perform so that the audience could find out what’s happening in Roswell and what
they might like to do.” The fun day featured martial art demonstrations, Roswell Folklorico, Flamenco dancers, singers, a Jazzercise routine and more. Performers ranged in age from children to 96-year-old square dancer Joseph Hammond. He said he has been square dancing since 1970, and enjoyed the event and the opportunity to perform. “It’s a wonderful thing I think, and I’m glad to see such a good attendance,” he said. “I was happy to perform. We have a good group and a lot of experienced square dancers.” This was his first time performing at the event, and when asked if he’ll be back next year, he chuckled and responded, “Maybe so, we’ll

Attendees gather for the groundbreaking of the new veterans cemetery, Saturday.
Many have been called to serve the United States over the years and quite soon those brave individuals who sacrificed their lives answering the call will have a place to be buried and honored in Roswell. Veterans from all over the Southwest gathered with their families Saturday morning across the street from the Eastern New Mexico State Fairgrounds, for the groundbreaking ceremony of the veterans cemetery.
Vietnam veteran Bert Eldridge has spent the better part of two years attending meetings, drawing up plans and doing everything in his power to make sure the veterans of Roswell will have a place to be buried when their time comes. With the help of the City Council, Home Depot and other community members, he was finally able to see the fruits of his labor begin to blossom. The ceremony itself featured heartfelt speeches from many of the individuals who have worked alongside Eldridge from the very beginning of the process.
Mayor Del Jurney told the crowd the immense amount of pride he felt in being a leader of a city undertaking such a task and what it means for Roswell.
“They give their lives, and they give their limbs, and they give their all so that we can do this today. So that we can have flags flying and we can be proud. And for us to be able to say thank you to those men and women by saying, ‘We want you home. When your life goes on, we want you here.’ That’s a very good See VETERANS, Page A3
Naturalist speaks of living landscapes at library event Armstrong, 1st man on moon, dies CINCINNATI (AP) — Neil Armstrong was a soft-spoken engineer who became a global hero when as a steely-nerved pilot he made “one giant leap for mankind” with a small step onto the moon. The modest man, who had people on Earth entranced and awed from almost a quarter -million miles away, but credited others for the feat, died Saturday. He was 82.

The Roswell community gathered Saturday to remember the life of K-9 Sage, a border collie who for more than a decade served her country during many of its greatest times of need and had affected lives throughout the world. Sage, who provided search and rescue in Iraq, at the Pentagon after 9/11, and on the Gulf Coast for hurricanes Katrina and Rita, received a veterans escort from the Patriot Guard Riders, New Mexico State Police, and the Roswell police and fire departments. The cavalcade went from Country Club Animal Hospital to St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, where more than 200 residents paid their respects at the memorial service. Sage’s handler and lifelong companion Diane Whetsel said Saturday’s turnout was a reminder of

Barr talk will open Bitter Court finds for Belzora Paz in fraud case against Gotsches Lake Dragonfly Festival
Dr. Brady Barr
JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER
National Geographicâ€™s Dr. Brady Barr, host of the popular television show Dangerous Encounters, granted the Daily Record an exclusive interview about his life, his views on wildlife and his upcoming talk for the kick-off dinner of this yearâ€™s expanded Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge Dragonfly Festival, Sept. 7 to 9. â€œI will fly into Albuquerque and drive down and leave the following morning.â€? Barr explained that, although he could not spend a lot of time in Roswell, he felt that these talks in support of the federal parks are extremely important. â€œWe are raising a bunch of kids that are out of touch with nature. There are more and more people, making our parks more valuable. With the increasing population pressures, itâ€™s our parks that keep wildlife and natural areas alive. Growing up in Bloomington, Ind., Iâ€™m a living example of this. It was the state, county and local parks that I visited as a child which instilled my love of nature and sparked my career (as a biologist).â€? He acknowledged that the problem with people losing touch with nature began decades ago. â€œIt has been snowballing ever since. Children now have the electronic media and electronic games so they get out even less.â€? Barr spoke passionately about the advantages of maintaining the park system to preserve a dwindling resource. He said Bitter Lake is a prime example of a unique environment and ecosystem that supports a wide range of the species. â€œThese (parks) are going to be the stewards of the planet in the future. They are important for biodiversity, for genetics and for the survival of many species.â€? He said he was looking forward to coming to Roswell. â€œI hope people enjoy themselves. Iâ€™m a very approachable person, and this event is important to me. I am a teacher. I give talks all over the world about staying in touch with nature.â€? Barr will be bringing film and video clips. He said he will discuss his adventures working as National Geographic herpetologist and what some people
might consider his sometimes unorthodox methods of experimentation, such as the â€œlick testâ€? for amphibian toxicity. Barr says the American hellbender was the worst tasting of all the species. Barrâ€™s talk is funded by J. Kenneth & Alice Smith Family Foundation. Smith was the guiding light behind the J. Kenneth Smith Bird Sanctuary on North Sycamore Avenue. His son Steve Smith has taken over the foundation. Love of nature is a family affair. â€œBuck Rhodes provided funds to the foundation, specifically to bring speakers into Roswell, Smith said. He noted that the gift was made in honor of his sister Allegra Hanson. Smith himself became interested in birding after his father invited him to come bird watching. He has been hooked ever since. Smith considers Bitter Lake an important resource for the city. â€œWe are so lucky here in Roswell to have Bitter Lake. How many towns have a national wildlife refuge only seven miles out of town?â€? Smith often goes out to the refuge to watch the annual bird migrations. â€œIt never becomes old because, you have ever -changing groups of birds and wildlife coming into the area.â€? Smith is enthusiastic about the 75th birthday celebration of Bitter Lake. â€œThanks to refuge manager Floyd A. Truetken, this is going to be one of the best years ever for the Dragonfly Festival,â€? Smith said. Exhibitors will include Spring River and Albuquerque zoos and New Mexico Herpetology Society. Representatives of the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary will also attend, with live wolves as part of their display. Hawks-a-Lot will provide a show with their birds of prey. The number of dragonfly tours will be expanded to last the full two days. There will be a number of speakers in the Visitor Center Auditorium on both Saturday and Sunday, and a Wildlife Arts and Crafts Fair with 10 vendors will display wildlife-related items. Also planned are a photography workshop and contest, a bird banding demonstration, a wildlife treasure hunt, arts and crafts demonstrations and classes, a fishing tank, archery demonstrations and archery lessons. Information about Barrâ€™s talk, which starts at 7 p.m., at the ENMU-R Performing Arts Center, is available online at friendsofbitterlake.com. The fundraising dinner precedes the presentation. The menu is marinated chicken breast or beef brisket with all the trimmings, salad bar, beverage and dessert, all prepared by ENMU-R chef Tony Morales. Tickets for the dinner are $18. Make reservations for the dinner before Aug. 31. Tickets for the talk will be available until they run out. The two-day festival, however, is open to all. Those who wish to take one of the tours, though, should make reservations in advance by calling 625-4011.

The civil case of Belzora Paz v. MMJ Builders Inc. was brief. The defendants, Jonathan and Maria Gotsche, were absent from the Friday morning hearing â€” behavior, which 5th District Court Judge Charles C. Currier noted later, they had exhibited in the past. Currier said, â€œAll defendants are in default, so thereâ€™s no debate about liability. All we have to consider now is the amount of the damages.â€? The fraud of nearly $20,000 from a 76-year-old widow began in 2010. According to the complaint filed in District Court, Paz contracted Gotsche in June to build four town homes on lots he owned. The contract specifically stated â€œtime is of the essence,â€? and promised completion by December 2010. Pazâ€™s attorney Timothy Cusack told Currier that she was unable to move into the home until March 29, 2011. She testified that she planned to live in one unit and use the others for the disabled. She told the Daily Record the delay from December to March left her homeless. Cusack outlined other stipulations listed in the contract. MMJ Construction, owned by Gotsche,
would pay for all materials and per mits. He would infor m the buyer of any â€œnotices of wavers or liens. ...â€? The complaint states the date the contract was signed between Paz and Gotsche, he entered into another agreement with James Polk Bank for a Deed of T rust, placing a lien on all Pazâ€™s properties. She was never notified. In the end, she had to pay $3,500 to the bank on the Gotscheâ€™s and MMJ Buildersâ€™ debts to get clear title to her home. Cusak said, â€œIn April of 2011, she found out during a search before closing that he had $94,000 in personal New Mexico state tax liens against the property, and Paz had to pay $15,000 to the government to get title.â€? Paz testified that she had to pay for a city of Roswell water lien of $197 placed on MMJ Builders to gain title, but the electric company didnâ€™t hold Paz responsible for the electricity he had used during construction because it was not in her name. Cusack listed a total of $18,531.63 in additional costs to Paz for Gotscheâ€™s debts. He then asked the court for punitive damages of 1.5 times the stated amount, along with compensation for costs in bringing the matter to trial, for filing fees and other fees, plus pre-judgment
and post-judgment interest for compensatory damages. After Paz testified, Currier asked if she had ever attempted to talk to Gotsche, and she said she made numerous calls and visits, but Gotsche never replied. â€œThey just ignored you?â€? Currier asked. Currier ruled the defendants â€œhad ... clearly and convincingly â€Ś exhibited intentional and willful fraudulence in their behavior and in their failure to inform you ... and intent in avoiding resolution.â€? Currier agreed with Cusackâ€™s assessment of punitive damages. Currier told Paz before she left the stand, â€œGood luck to you in collecting the money.â€? According to New Mexico Court Case Lookup, Gotsche was also sued for breach of contract in 2000, when he operated under the name of Roswell Home Pro, 501 N. Main St. That case was settled out of court. Paz said that the public needed to be war ned against such frauds. â€œUnder any company they choose to start, under any name, these people (Maria and Jonathan Gotsche) cannot be trusted.â€? firstname.lastname@example.org

how many lives Sage touched in the community, and that even in death, Sage continues to serve. Valuable information from Sage’s body will be utilized by the medical departments at Michigan State University and the University of Pennsylvania to further studies regarding toxins that affect both humans and dogs, Whetsel said.

She said many might not know that Jazzercise has been in Roswell since 1995, and her center of f North Richardson Avenue has been open since April 2011. She and some of the instructors and dancers from the center showed off their moves and Carter said she hopes the perception about Jazzercise changed thanks to their performance. “Just to demonstrate what goes into a class,

ries of those who heard them in a live broadcast. “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” Armstrong said. (Armstrong insisted later that he had said “a” before man, but said he, too, couldn’t hear it in the version that went to the world.) In those first few moments on the moon, during the climax of a heated space race with the then-Soviet Union, Armstrong stopped in what he called “a tender moment” and left a patch to commemorate NASA astronauts and Soviet cosmonauts who had died in action. Ar mstrong and Buzz Aldrin spent nearly three hours walking on the lunar surface, collecting samples, conducting experiments and taking photographs. The moonwalk marked America’s victory in the Cold War space race that began Oct. 4, 1957, with the launch of the Soviet Union’s Sputnik 1, a 184pound satellite that sent shock waves around the world. Although he had been a Navy fighter pilot, a test pilot for NASA’s forerunner
sue information continues to be used at Colorado State University, where medical personnel are conducting translational research to fight cancer. “They call it One Cure, One Cancer, and those things they learned from dogs like Sage (is) all blending in so that doctors can learn how we can fight this disease and possibly kill it.” Sage arrived in New Mexico from the United Kingdom in 1999, and trained with Whetsel to become a K-9 disaster specialist for FEMA. Whetsel, a certified K-9 unit dog handler and a licensed EMT, taught Sage how to provide canine support in criminal matters, emergencies, disasters and military action. “(People) have no idea how many lives are saved because I think so many times Jazzercise is related to how it was in the early ’80s and late ’70s when it was founded. It’s really changed with the times, and it’s stayed relevant,” she said. “We really appreciate the opportunity to show everybody what we do and how much fun we have.”
The Girls Scouts of the Desert Southwest had a fishing booth for kids, while the Boy Scouts Conquistador Council helped the audience stay hydrated by selling bottled water. The Spring River Education Program and Roswell Humane Society had booths to educate the public about the proper care of animals. Cody Lightfoot representing Southwest Dairy Farmesrs brought the mobile dairy classand an astronaut, Ar mstrong never allowed himself to be caught up in the celebrity and glamour of the space program. Armstrong’s moonwalk capped a series of accomplishments that included piloting the X-15 rocket plane and making the first space docking during the Gemini 8 mission, which included a successful emergency splashdown. The 1969 landing met an audacious deadline that President John Kennedy had set in May 1961, shortly after Alan Shepard became the first American in space with a 15-minute suborbital flight. (Soviet cosmonaut Yuri A. Gagarin had orbited the Earth and beaten the U.S. into space the previous month.) “I believe this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before the decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and retur ning him safely to Earth,” Kennedy had said. “No single space project in this period will be more impressive to mankind, or more important to the longrange exploration of space; and none will be so difficult or expensive to accomplish.” The end-of-decade goal was met with more than five months to spare. “Houston: Tranquility Base

by these dogs overseas in Afghanistan and Iraq,” Whetsel said. “They’re detecting the dangers. They let us know. This has been going on for generations and generations, with our search and rescue dogs and our police dogs, who place themselves in harm’s way. “Sometimes it’s a gunshot for a police dog. Sometimes it’s sniffing toxins like Sage did. They’re jobs that have to be done, and they ask for very little in return.”
Mayor Del Jur ney attended the service and said the large turnout highlighted the pride and honor that exists in the Roswell community. “She served this nation well, from the 9/11 attack at the Pentaroom. He presented a live dairy cow on which he demonstrated the milking process. He also explained the nutritional value of milk and stressed the importance of children and adults getting their daily serving of milk. It was Lightfoot’s first time presenting at the event and he said it was a good opportunity to educate families. “People need to know that milk comes from the cows and we take good care of the cows,” he said. “They need to know that the milk is healthy when it gets to them and they need to drink it. And why they should drink it? Because it has nine essential nutrients and replenishes your body and all those good things.” firstname.lastname@example.org
here,” Armstrong radioed after the spacecraft settled onto the moon. “The Eagle has landed.” “Roger, T ranquility,” Apollo astronaut Charles Duke radioed back from Mission Control. “We copy you on the ground. You’ve got a bunch of guys about to turn blue. We’re breathing again. Thanks a lot.” The third astronaut on the mission, Michael Collins, circled the moon in the mother ship Columbia 60 miles overhead while Armstrong and Aldrin went to the moon’s surface. In all, 12 American astronauts walked on the moon between 1969 and the last moon mission in 1972. An estimated 600 million people — a fifth of the world’s population — watched and listened to the landing, the largest audience for any single event in history. Afterward, people walked out of their homes and gazed at the moon, in awe of what they had just seen. Others peeked through telescopes in hopes of spotting the astronauts. It’s the second death in a month of one of NASA’s most visible, history-making astronauts. Sally Ride, the first American woman in space, died of pancreatic cancer on July 23 at age 61.

It’s good that we can be here today to say good bye, and to say thank you, and to share our appreciation for the work that she did.” Patriot Guard senior ride captain Mary Ann Murphy said Sage became the mascot for the Patriot Guard Riders, who traveled from all around the southwest to attend the service. “Sage has just affected so many lives. There was just something about her,” Murphy said. ”Sage, she was everybody’s dog. And she knew it. That was her job — to be everybody’s dog.” Murphy pointed out how the Sage Foundation for

That’s really what determines where we are, at the north end of the Chihuahuan Desert, and just east of here, the Great Plains Grasslands.”

Lionicio Perez gave an emotional performance of a track from his CD “Welcome Home, Soldier.” He is the brother-in-law of fallen Army soldier Gabriel Galvan, a former Roswell resident who passed in June and is scheduled to be one of the first veterans buried in the new cemetery. Perez and his wife traveled from Broken Arrow, Okla., to attend the ceremony. When he addressed the crowd before singing, he spoke about Abraham Lincoln starting the tradition of honoring those who’ve defended the country’s freedom, and he and his wife and children feel it is imperative that tradition is continued. Eldridge said that while the process was tedious at times, with 25,000 veterans in the area it was well worth the effort, especially since the nearest veteran’s cemetery is in Sante Fe. “We did this so people

Dogs Who Serve, which raises money for the medical care of service dogs, will also carry on Sage’s legacy for generations to come, having raised nearly $10,000 since February 2011.
Whetsel said Sage’s legacy also lives on in her offspring. Dubbed the Magnificent Seven by Whetsel, Sage’s litter produced a therapy dog, a service dog for a paraplegic woman in Florida and two FEMA-certified search and rescue dogs. She said that the litter produced two search and rescue dogs is particularly astonishing considering there are only a couple hundred at any given time.
Whetsel said that over the years she and Sage shared countless experiDunmire, who once served as superintendent at Carlsbad Caverns and at Guadalupe Mountains National Park in Salt Flat, Texas, said his interest in ecoregions is rooted in the fact that New Mexico owns the third-highest natural diversity in the United States, exceeded only by Texas and California. “We rank way up there in vegetation zones, but also in terms of its geology. It’s just such a wonderfully diverse state.
“People who don’t live here talk about the desert. But that’s obviously far from the case. Sierra Blanca nearby here goes up and has snow; it’s a rich forest. In the Four Corners area, you have more desertlike conditions, but also these incredible badlands-type formations. And then of course out on our eastern prairie, the wonder ful short grass prairie that is so different from other places in the U.S., and in the world, really.”
could be buried at home.” Curtis Gordon, Home Depot store manager said he respects Eldridge’s effort and the decision to donate $18,000 worth of supplies was made with no hesitation. “I just thought it was important what he was doing, and it’s always been important for Home Depot to be a part of the community. So it just felt like it was my duty to try and help them and their mission of getting it started,” Gordon said. In addition to the chain link fence, cinder block and rockwork donated for the cemetery’s entryway, Home Depot will also send 40 employees to help clean the site. Eldridge wants the community to know that the cemetery is for any and every veteran, regardless of time served. He encourages all veterans who know they

Gov. Martinez in tall cotton with Republicans
SANTA FE — We said two weeks ago that New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez’s selection as a Republican National Convention speaker was a slam dunk for the committee. Republicans have significant problems with women and minorities so the selection of several minority women with high offices was an easy call. And now comes the news that our governor will speak immediately before the keynote address. That is a real coup. Her slot is being touted as second only to keynoter Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey Tuesday night. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio will introduce presidential nominee Mitt Romney on the final night of the convention. Every one of the multitude of convention speakers has a special message to deliver. Gov. Martinez was chosen to tell the inspiring story of her life and to talk about what needs to be done to keep the promise of America for the next generation.
INSIDE THE CAPITOL
Other women governors chosen as speakers are South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin. Other women on the convention program are U.S. Rep. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and Ann Romney. Also speaking in a prime position will be former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who is expected to talk about the need for a strong military. Many would have liked to see her as the vicepresidential nominee but her prochoice position ruled that out. Gov. Nikki Haley, who is East Indian, is expected to talk about diversity and will appeal to the young. She is the youngest gover-

nor in the nation at 40. She also can appeal to the military. Her husband is scheduled for deployment to Afghanistan next year. Other new governors who will share the platform are Brian Sandoval of Nevada, Luiz Fortuno of Puerto Rico and Scott Walker of Wisconsin. Like several other Hispanic elected officials, Sandoval does not speak Spanish. Gov. Martinez may sell better to Hispanics because she speaks the language well. The tea partiers will hear from Tennessee Sen. Rand Paul, former Democratic Rep. Arthur Davis of Alabama, Georgia Attorney General Sam Owens and Gov. Bobby Jindall of Arkansas. The swing state of Florida has numerous speakers. Among them are Sen. Marco Rubio, Gov. Rick Scott, Rep. Connie Mack and Attorney General Pam Bondi. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush also is on the agenda and likely to talk about the brand of education reform New Mexico currently is experiencing.
Ohio, another swing state, will be represented by Gov. John Kasich, House Speaker John Boehner and U.S. Sen. Rob Portman. Pennsylvania will be represented by former Sen. Rick Santorum, a former Mitt Romney challenger. The old timers will be represented by Sen. John McCain, the GOP’s most recent presidential candidate, and Mike Huckabee, who ran against McCain in the 2008 presidential primaries and who was expected to jump in again this year. Instead Huckabee kept his popular Fox-TV show and interviewed the top candidates. He had almost exclusive access to Rep. Todd Akin as the Missouri Senate candidate debated whether to withdraw from his race. Huckabee’s convention message is expected to be directed toward Christian conservatives. And, of course, vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan, a U.S. Representative from Minnesota, will make a major address. Ryan has been in the news more often than
presidential candidate Mitt Romney lately because of his close political ties to the much maligned Todd Akin. That may bring some extra focus on Ryan during the convention. Several prominent Republicans have been notable for not being included as a convention speaker. They include Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry and Ron Paul. The blow to Rep. Paul may have been softened by the selection of his son Rand Paul to speak. The GOP is doing something very interesting with Newt Gingrich, who also is not on the list of speakers. Gingrich instead will be immersed in something convention organizers call Gingrich University. Classes will be conducted each morning of the convention on how to sell the GOP platform.

Obama has troops’ blood on his hands
The killing earlier this month of three Camp Pendleton Marines by an Afghan man wearing a police uniform in Helmand Province brought home a difficult and tragic truth: The Obama administration policy in Afghanistan is failing. It is failing to achieve the American and NATO alliance’s policy goals and it is failing American and alliance troops in the war zone. The administration strategy is built around a policy of phased withdrawal of international troops, training the Afghan security forces and gradually requiring them to take the lead combat role against the Taliban insurgents, allowing U.S. troops to go after al-Qaeda terrorists. The goal is to have all alliance troops out of Afghanistan by the end of 2014. But evidence is growing that the Afghan troops, although now numbering about 350,000, are simply not ready for the task. The three Pendleton Marines were shot to death, and a fourth wounded, on Aug. 10. As documented in a front-page story by U-T San Diego’s Gretel Kovach, accounts of the circumstances and details of the slayings varied, but all agreed that the gunman was dressed as an Afghan police officer. So far this year, there have been more than three dozen international troops killed by local or national Afghan security forces in 29 “insider” attacks, including two more last Friday. According to news reports, there were only 11 such attacks in all of 2011 and only five both in 2009 and 2010. Whether the killers were actual Afghan security forces or militants wearing their uniforms, this growing “green-on-blue” carnage — so named for the color of the Afghan and coalition forces’ uniforms — calls into question the effectiveness of the plan to screen and train the Afghans to take over the primary combat as Obama’s withdrawal deadline gets closer. Any parent with a son or daughter stationed in Afghanistan should be outraged. All Americans should be concerned. Yet the war, now in its second decade, seems almost a back-burner issue these days in the presidential campaign, among incumbent members of Congress and their election opponents and in the public town square. There are other reasons beside the growing “green-on-blue” attacks that suggest the alliance’s policy and strategy in Afghanistan is at best stagnant. Provinces once thought relatively secure are suddenly flaring with new combat. American forces are dying at a rate of one per day this year, a rate that is increasing and not decreasing as one might expect with the drawdown of troops. If the war in Afghanistan is important — and both Republican President George W. Bush and Democratic President Barack Obama said it is — then it should be fought to win or not at all. That means putting enough troops there to get the job done and keeping them there until it is done, or pulling them all out now. Guest Editorial U-T San Diego
DEAR DOCTOR K: I’ve read that certain types of exercise help prevent osteoporosis. What types are best? How do they prevent bone loss? DEAR READER: Osteoporosis is a disease that weakens bones and makes them more susceptible t o b r eak s. Bo n e s ar e ve r y dynamic. Inside every bone, some cells are laying down new bone and other cells are chewing up old bone. You want these bonebuilding and bone-destr oying forces to always remain about equal, and for most of our young and early adult lives they are. But as we get older, the bonedestroying forces become slightly stronger than the bone-building forces. That’s when osteoporosis begins.
Political trapping season for GOP It’s trapping season.

You choose the headset you wear in life OPINION II
Roswell Daily Record
Imagine you are living your life wearing a headset that delivers information directly through the earpieces into your ears. For the most part you control what comes into your head through the headset, because you choose what it is plugged into. What you are plugged into directly influences who you are and the decisions you make. When all is said and done, you choose the influencers in your life. You give them access to you and you give weight to what they speak at you, good or bad. You ar e influenced by countless sources including others who tell you what they think, information you read in magazines, books or from your computer, and information you watch on your television screen or a movie screen. All this information is coming at you, and once you receive it you process it. Then you individually and internally can choose what action, if any, you take. You ultimately decide if you make the right decision or the wrong decision. Or sometimes you choose the best of two good decisions or the least worst of two bad decisions. But it is you who chooses. Then you live with whatever the consequences are of your decision. What you pipe through your

headset is the information you allow to enter your head from the outside. You determine the steady flow of influence that comes in through your headset. Much of the input that influences you comes from relationships you have with others. Sometimes relationships have been ended or put on hold because one person doesn’t approve of choices being made by another. Relationships have been ended because the speaker isn’t listened to or because the recipient doesn’t want to be spoken to. Do you think there are people in this world who repeatedly make bad decisions? Do you think some of these people purposely choose to surr ound themselves with others who agree with their bad decisions and even encourage them to continue to make them? What organizations do you
tion this fall, has seized on the opportunity to use Akin’s answer much as Republicans ar e using Pr esident Obama’s “you didn’t build that” line about small businesses. The Democratic and pro-choice fundraising letters are already in the mail. According to the Washington Post, “Research published in the Journal of American Obstetrics and Gynecology suggests over 30,000 pr egnancies result from rape annually. ‘Rape-related pregnancy occurs with significant frequency,’ the trio of researchers from the University of South Carolina concluded. ‘It is a cause of many unwanted pregnancies.’ A separate 2001 study — which used a sample of 405 rape victims between ages 12 and 45 — found that 6.4 percent became pregnant.” The U.S. Department of Justice’s National Crime Victimization Survey found there is an average of 207,754 rape victims (age 12 or older) each year. If Akin wanted to comment on abortion, which numerous polls indicate is a low priority for most voters in this election, when asked what he thought about abortion in cases of rape, he should have made the pro-choice side explain how they can defend more than 50 million abortions in the U.S. since 1973. He should have said that there are thousands of women’s health centers available to assist women and their unborn children in a variety of
associate with? What causes are you involved in? When you gather with other individuals for a common purpose, you typically assume the cor e view of the group. Why would a person who repeatedly makes bad decisions allow an influencer to be involved in his or her life that truly encourages good decisions? Maybe because he is smart. Maybe the bad decision maker knows he is doing wrong or that the good decision influencer is looking out for his best interest. Taking a good influencer out of your life does nothing but move you further down a bad decision path. If your life was determined not by you, but by a board of directors who sit around a table and who, after discussion, make every significant decision in your life, who would you want on your board of directors? This is a revealing question. Which five people in your life would you seat at the table? Are these five people individuals who truly love you and care for you? Or are they individuals who are using you for a greater gain for themselves? Are these five people ones who make good decisions in their day to day lives or are you choosing a board who sees the world your
ways. Abortion is not the only option. Democrats and their friends in big media protect their own when accused of outrageous acts. Topping a long list is the late Sen. T ed Kennedy, who drove off a bridge in Chappaquiddick, Mass., leaving a woman, not his wife, to drown. In 1978, Juanita Broaddrick, a Clinton campaign worker, accused Bill Clinton, then the attorney general of Arkansas, of rape. His advice for the fat lip he gave her, according to Broaddrick, was you’d “better get some ice for that.” Clinton, Kennedy and many other Democratic (and, yes, some Republicans) engaged in outrageous behavior, but continued to serve in of fice. Akin is guilty of using the wrong words and Republicans run from him like scalded dogs. Akin considers himself an “absolutist” when it comes to life. Theologically and morally he is right, but in what scripture refers to as a “wicked and adulter ous generation,” he is unlikely to advance the pro-life cause by publicly stating this position during a volatile election season when the Senate majority is up for grabs. Akin shouldn’t have to compromise his position. But if the goal is to reduce the number of abortions, focusing on pregnancy from rape does not advance that worthy objective.

way regardless of bad decisions you might be making? Are these wise five people the five people who have the greatest influence on your life or have you excluded one or two of them from your world? I guess what I am saying is that you can get support for just about any position that you want to take in your life. If you want to justify doing drugs, surround yourself with others who do drugs. If you want to justify getting drunk on a regular basis or having extramarital relationships, find others who see the world the same way and allow them to influence you. In the aftermath of Michael Jackson’s death, I r ead an account that said that those closest to him knew he was struggling and making bad decisions, but those closest to him were afraid to say anything to him for fear that they would lose their job. I guess if you can choose those around you and pay them for their services, you can find people who will tell you only what you want to hear. It is danger ous to fill your board of directors with influencers who merely rubber stamp what you want them to say. Why have a board if all they do is agree with every decision you make, both good and bad?

Don’t get rid of good influencers even if you disagree with the advice they give. Get rid of bad influencers in your world and watch how your life changes.

Keep Romney out of White House
Dear Editor: Presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s colossal arrogance and political ineptitude continues to amaze me. He really thinks he can beat President Obama in spite of his past record and proposed future agenda. Take a look at his resume. On his recent trip abroad during the Olympics, he insulted and alienated almost every country he visited. He said, “Let the automobile industry go bankrupt,” and, “I am not interested in the poor; they have a safety net.” His agenda will destroy this safety net. He insulted blacks at a recent NAACP convention and was booed by the attendees. His immigration policy has completely alienated Latinos. His war on women has lost him the women’s vote. He has vowed to kill planned parenthood, the EPA, the department of education and cut the food stamp program by one half. He refuses to release more than two years’ tax returns. He pioneered outsourcing jobs to China while he was at Bain Capital. He has money stashed in Switzerland, the Cayman Islands and Bermuda to avoid taxes. He said the Paul Ryan budget plan is “marvelous.” This plan would make a voucher system out of Medicare and drastically reduce Social Security and Medicaid benefits. He is for a tax break for the ultrarich paid for by a tax increase on the middle

He advocates returning to the Bush economic policies which got us into this mess in the first place. Former President Bill Clinton said, “Romney would be Bush on steroids.” His wife condescendingly referred to the press corps as “you people.” One of his top aides said he was an Etch-a-sketch because he flip flops so easily on almost every political issue. His political beliefs and activities are completely dominated by tea party extremism. He has no political agenda except to be against everything Obama is for. He is the perfect poster boy for the 1 percent. He advocated doing nothing to help the millions who were in danger of having their homes foreclosed on. He thinks the country needs fewer teachers, policemen and firemen. He trails President Obama in almost every public opinion poll. Republicans hate the word “entitlement” when it refers to social programs which help the poor, old and weak, but they seem to feel that they are entitled to the White House and will win regardless of what they say or do. Mrs. Romney said, “It is our turn.” It is not their turn and Mitt Romney’s colossal arrogance and political ineptitude will make sure of it. Randle Easley Roswell

Democrats use the ‘three D’s’
Dear Editor: With the most important election in American history at hand, the Democrats are still practicing the “three D’s”: divert, disinform and deny. The inconvenient truths that demonstrate the failure of the current socialist regime are: 42 months of 8 percent and higher unemployment, 23 million Americans are out of work, we have a debt of $16 trillion, there are 45 million Americans on food stamps and 46 million of us are in poverty. The practice of the “three D’s” is evident from Washington to the local level as illustrated in a letter to the editor from the Democratic Party of Chaves County. As an alternative to debating and solving the real issues, the party chairman produces a large number of “statistics.” This is diversion, “... 303 times as many people have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan than in the ghastly attacks of Sept 11, 2001.” War is not a video game. America was attacked! Is it being suggested that once the “score” was reached 2,977 (equal to that of the victims of the 911 attacks) dead Iraqis and Afghans should we have packed up and returned home? Should Adm. Chester Nimitz have halted the offensive during the Battle of Midway once the number of Japanese sailors killed and vessels sunk matched that of our heroes killed at Pearl Harbor? Oh, and forget about FDR’s declaration of war on Nazi Germany as Adolf had nothing to do with the attack on Hawaii. Moreover, Public Law 107 - 40 - Authorization for Use of Military Force (in Afghanistan) and Public Law 107 - 243 Authorization for Use of Military Force against Iraq Resolution of 2002 were bi-partisan efforts. This is the deny part of the leftist agenda who now want to distance themselves from the war on terror. It is essential to remember that defense for the common good, is a major tenant of the Constitution. Defense expenditures are not optional. In the case of civilian casualties I will provide an example the tactic of disinformation. When civilians are killed or injured the situation is referred to as a CIVCAS (civilian casualty) event. Earlier this year when I was in Afghanistan I wrote a paper on lessons learned pertaining to the efforts of NATO Forces to reduce the number of CIVCAS. As my research progressed I was amazed to discover that CIVCAS is not a self-defining term. I incorrectly understood it to be synonymous to collateral damage, an unintended victim of a fire fight, or a poorly planned UAV strike. I soon discerned that CIVCAS means the death or injury to an individual who is not in an organized military. Here is a check on learning. A Toyota truck laden with 100 kilograms of HME (home made explosives) leaves Kabul bound for Bagram at 900 hours traveling at 100 kilometer per hour and 15 members of Taliban local No. 461 are on board. Meanwhile, a Tata (Indian automotive manufacturer) bus leaving Bagram at a rate of 85 kilometer per hour containing 10 passengers, a driver and five homicide vested Al Qaida brothers departs from Bagram enroute to Kabul. At 0915 the bus swerves to avoid hitting a boy on a donkey and collides head-on with the Taliban commuters. The explosives detonate and all parties are killed. What is the CIVCAS stat? If you said 31 you are correct. Similarly, the CIVCAS count on 911 included the 19 terrorists. Sincerely, Jerry Heck Roswell
LETTERS famous words? “An appeal to arms and the God of hosts is all that is left us. But we shall not fight our battle alone. There is a just God Who presides over the destinies of nations. The battle sir, is not of the strong alone. Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death.” The following year, 1776, he wrote this, “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religion, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ! For that reason alone, people of other faiths have been afforded freedom of worship here.” Thomas Jefferson on the front of his well-worn Bible wrote: “I am a Christian, that is to say a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus! I have little doubt that our whole country will soon be rallied to the unity of our Creator and, I hope, to the pure doctrine of Jesus also.” George Washington in a speech Sept. 19, 1796: “It is impossible to govern the world without God and the Bible! Of all the dispositions and habits that lead to political prosperity, our religion and morality are the indispensable supporters! Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that our national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.” Consider these words from his personal prayer book: “Oh, Eternal and everlasting God, direct my thoughts, words and work. Wash away my sins in the Immaculate Blood of the Lamb and purge my heart by the Holy Spirit.” What about these words by John Adams, our second president, who also served as chairman of the American

Bible Society: “We have no government armed with the power capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and true religion. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” In 1782, the United States Congress voted this resolution: “The Congress of the United States recommends and approves the Holy Bible for use in all schools.” I could quote John Jay, John Q. Adams, James Monroe and others but space will not allow me. The bottom line is our founders were believers, and they had a Christian passion in their hearts and believed that there was a loving God. I would go as far as to say it never occurred to them that the United States of America would ever be anything but a God honoring nation. I’m just saying ...

Gay pride event
Dear Editor: I was so pleased to read in the Record article about the recent gay pride event that Mayor Jurney and the city administration helped the organizers find a new venue when the first one was barred to them. It is good to know that our city will welcome all kinds of diverse groups and events. I was proud to tell friends and family in other parts of the country that a gay pride event had actually taken place in Roswell. Thank you very much, Mayor Jurney, for your excellent leadership in this regard. Betsy Cunningham Roswell
Christianity and the United States
Dear Editor, It makes me sad to see the shape our country is in. Seems paranoia and hate are the order of the day. Lack of trust in a government that has gone haywire and officials who seem to be out for themselves is weakening our stand in the world. We were once the most powerful nation in the world, now, not so much. We have blindly walked away from what our founders wanted and expected. The same Congress that created the Declaration of Independence formed the American Bible Society and voted to purchase and import 20,000 copies of Scripture for the people of this nation! Patrick Henry is still remembered for his words, “Give me liberty or give me death.” What is the context of these

Joe Forchtner couldn’t have asked for a better start to his tenure as the New Mexico Military Institute Bronco football coach. It was all there — a team determined to prove itself after last year’s bowl appear-
ance, a home game and a stadium full of people. And most importantly, to top it all off, a victory. The Broncos (1-0) gave Forchtner his first career victory with a 34-24 wire-towire win over visiting Air Force Prep at Colt Field on Saturday. “It feels real good. Any win
we can get is a good win,” the first-year coach said. “I’ll take that. That’s a good team that we just beat. “I didn’t really know what to expect because we’re so young. We made some mistakes that a young team will make and we need to get See NMMI, Page B2

Goddard girls down Portales, fall to Sartans LAWRENCE FOSTER RECORD ASST. SPORTS EDITOR
Sometimes when a team improves from the previous season, it is hard to see in
the stats and win column. That isn’t the case for the Goddard girls soccer team. Goddard beat Portales 5-0 in the semifinals of the Lady Rockets Tournament before
LOCAL BRIEFS COLTS WIN OPENER, 4-0
PORTALES — The NMMI boys soccer team opened its season with a 4-0 win over Portales on Saturday. The Colts’ first goal came from Josh Caradajal, who hustled after a loose ball and found the back of the net after the Portales keeper misplayed the ball. NMMI’s first second-half goal came from Angel Reyes, who was the beneficiary of a Marco Rojo cross. The Colts’ other two goals came on long-range rockets from Gerry Estrella and Jorge Garza. NMMI coach John Barbour was pleased with how his team played. “I was extremely pleased with how they played,” he said. “This was the first time they played a game together. They have only practiced together for 12 days at the most and we are still learning each others names and working on communication. It is a big challenge for us, but we played really well. “They took what we practiced and applied it to the game.”

falling to St. Pius X 10-0 in the championship game on Saturday. The 2-1 start to the season was all Rocket coach Betty Elizondo could have asked for. “I am pleased with the girls. They played well and played hard this weekend,” she said. “I told them this is the first time we have won a trophy at our tournament in the last three or four years, so they have accomplished something already. We scored more goals in this tournament than we scored all last year and we won more games already than last year. “We still have a lot of strides to make and a lot of things to accomplish. I told them, ‘Don’t get your heads down and November.’ Our goal is November.” In Goddard’s first game of the day, Danielle Hubbard continued her hot streak, scoring three goals. Camille Martinez and Mariah Sandoval each scored a goal for the Rockets against Portales. Against the Sartans, the state runners-up in 2011, the Rockets hung tough in the early going. Both teams made early runs

Roswell Lady Coyotes beat Santa Teresa, fall to Los Lunas LAWRENCE FOSTER RECORD ASST. SPORTS EDITOR
Anyone can claim to be able to do something, but stepping up and being able to deliver is an entirely different thing. During Roswell’s first game on Saturday at the Lady Rockets Tournament, the Coyotes found themselves down 1-0 when coach Samantha Ward turned to her players and asked who can score. Freshman Lrissa Cobos piped up that she could and delivered with three goals in a 4-3 Coyote win over Santa Teresa. “We were down 1-0 and I turned to the girls and I said, ‘Who can score?’” Ward said. “(Lrissa) said ‘Me’ and I said, ‘OK, keep your word.’ She went in and did exactly what she said. Once she scored that one, it put a smile on her face and just kept going. She is a freshman, so she stepped up big time today.”
The Warriors took a 1-0 lead early when Leeza Renteria snuck the ball into the backside of the goal. The score remained 1-0 until the 37th minute when Cobos scored Roswell’s first goal of the season. Following a turnover, Roswell booted a through ball that Cobos was able to run down. With the Warrior keeper charging at her, Cobos was able to get a shot off and it was true, knotting the game at 1. Roswell took the lead for good in the 47th minute with a goal that both inspired the Coyotes and demoralized the Warriors.

After a penalty, Roswell had a free kick from 25yards. Earlier in the match from roughly the same distance, the Coyotesâ€™ Darian Rivera nearly scored on a free kick. The second time proved to be the charm as she lofted a shot toward the opposite post that softly fell into the back of the net, giving Roswell a 2-1 lead. Ward said that Riveraâ€™s goal was huge. â€œIt was a huge goal. After a game like last night, you need something like that to get the girls going,â€? she said. â€œThey are exhausted, their legs are dead. Their emotions arenâ€™t down from last night, but they were a little bit down because they wanted to win. But I think it was a game changer for us.â€? Cobos scored two goals in the ensuing seven minutes to give the Coyotes a 4-1 lead. Those goals proved vital as Santa Teresa was able to regroup and get to within one after goals by Daniela Barraza and Renteria, but Roswellâ€™s defense held tough to preserve the win. Ward said that she was proud of the way both sides of the ball played against
the Warriors. â€œIt is always good when you have a defender go down hurt like Alicia Romero and be able to have someone step in for her,â€? she said. â€œJessica LaStella pushed in the middle and did a good job and then we put Darian on the outside. So it is very nice to have the offense do well and at the same time do defense well.â€?
Los Lunas 1, Roswell 0 Roswell closed out the Lady Rockets Tournament with a loss to Los Lunas. Ward said that Roswellâ€™s youth was evident during the tournament. â€œI think, overall, the only thing I can say is that we are young,â€? she said. â€œSometimes that plays to our advantage, but this weekend, I think it played to our disadvantage. Mentally, we arenâ€™t as tough as we can be and we have a few things to work on.â€? Ward said it will take work to get where the team needs to be. â€œA lot of (what we need to work on) is formations,â€? she said. â€œPlaces on the field and what to do with the ball when we receive it. All together we have a lot to work on. It will come together eventually, but it will just take a while.â€? email@example.com

those fixed if we want to achieve our goals, but we got a win and Iâ€™m proud of the guys.â€? Forchtner also got his first postgame celebratory shower after the victory when the team doused him in ice-cold water after the final seconds ticked off. â€œThatâ€™s cold. That will stop your heart for a couple beats,â€? he said with a smile. â€œIâ€™m warm now, though, and I feel great.â€? He got that shower after a win fueled by an offense that outgained its opponent by 124 yards and controlled the clock for nearly the equivalent of three full quarters. NMMIâ€™s modified pistol offense ran the ball 48 times on the night and produced five rushers who all had at least 25 yards. Leslie Young was at the top of that list with 59 yards on 14 tries, followed by quarterback Benjamin Langford with 51 yards to go along with three touchdowns. Langford was one of three guys who saw time as the signal caller along with freshmen Quinn Billerman and Jacob Jameson. That rotation kept the Huskies off balance throughout the night and, contrary to popular belief, seemed to work to NMMIâ€™s favor. â€œWe had three guys who we thought were pretty equal. They all have totally different strengths and they are all totally different quarterbacks,â€? Forchtner said about the trio. â€œThey all kind of bring something different to the table. â€œAt times, I thought all three were successful. And all three made some mistakes. But, I thought it worked well for us.â€? Billerman and Langford combined to go 16 of 27 for 165 yards and a touchdown. Jameson played several different positions on the night and racked up a fairly impressive stat line â€” 37 yards rushing, 44 yards receiving, 65 punt return yards, 44 kick return yards and a touchdown (a 51-yard punt return in the fourth quarter). The most impressive performance of the night came from freshman wide receiver Enyinnaya Nnadozie, though. The Houston, Texas, native hauled in four passes â€” three of which came by either the diving or leaping variety â€” for 60 yards and a TD. â€œThatâ€™s just something Iâ€™m

Nnadozie said about the three electrifying grabs that elicited oohs and aahs from both teamsâ€™ fan bases. â€œThis is my first college game and youâ€™ve got to make big plays if youâ€™re going to win.â€? The first of those catches came with less than a minute left in the first quarter and gave NMMI a 14-0 lead. Air Force Prep returned the ensuing kickoff for a TD and drew to within four on a field goal late in the first half. The Huskies would get within four once more â€” at 21-17 in the third â€” but could never take the lead away from the Broncos. Langford scored on a 1yard keeper with 1:57 left in the third to make it 27-17 and Jamesonâ€™s punt return TD pushed the lead to 34-17 a little more than three minutes into the fourth. AFP (01) added a TD in the latter stages of the fourth, but never seriously threatened again. firstname.lastname@example.org

Romo shines in short time, Cowboys beat Rams 20-19 Roswell Daily Record
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Tony Romo didn’t need much time or his top three pass-catchers to show he’s ready for the regular season. Playing only a quarter in what was supposed to be his most extensive action of the preseason, Romo threw for 198 yards with two long touchdowns to Dwayne Harris, who got behind defenders and went through them to score in the Dallas Cowboys’ 20-19 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Saturday night. “Tony is an outstanding player and he’s done it with a lot of different kinds of guys,” coach Jason Garrett said. “It’s nice to see him play well and play in a good rhythm with the younger guys.” Even with a preseason game left to play, Dallas (2-1) is already starting to turn its attention to the regular -season opener Sept. 5 at the defending Super Bowl champion Giants. Romo isn’t expecting to play at home against Miami on Wednesday night, a week before that game in New York. “I do know I’ve been preparing for New York for a while,” Romo said. “We’ll just get back to studying on them and take it from there.” The Cowboys are confident receivers Miles Austin (hamstring) and Dez Bryant

(right knee tendinitis) will be ready to play against the Giants. Seven-time Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten, who sustained a lacerated spleen in the preseason opener nearly two weeks ago, is uncertain. Their absence wasn’t an issue against the Rams (1-2), who lost 34-7 at Cowboys Stadium last October and have been inconsistent this preseason under new coach Jeff Fisher. Romo completed 9-of-13 passes while playing three series, pushing the Cowboys (No. 15 in the AP Pro32) to a 17-3 lead. Harris finished with three catches for 118 yards and Kevin Ogletree, going into his fourth season, caught five passes for 75 yards. “Injuries provide opportunity. With Dez and Miles being out, those guys have gotten more of an opportunity than they would have otherwise,” Garrett said. “I think they’ve taken advantage of it.” Kyle Orton was 9 of 12 for 99 yards playing both series in the second quarter. Harris, a sixth-round pick last year now in the mix to be the No. 3 receiver after Austin and Bryant, got behind the Rams’ secondary for a 61-yard TD that put Dallas up 10-0 less than 9 minutes into the game.

Greg Zuerlein kicked the first of two field goals longer than 50 yards for St. Louis (No. 28, AP Pro32), Harris caught a pass coming across the middle of the field. When Harris got close to the left sideline, where it looked like he might go out of bounds or get tackled, he instead split defensive backs. Craig Dahl and Janoris Jenkins ran into each other instead of the receiver near the 15, and Harris sprinted up the sideline to finish a 38-yard score. “Jenks lost his footing on the first ball down the sideline. We had a communication problem on the long TD pass. Those things I’m not concerned about because they’re correctable,” Fisher said. “We gave up way too much through the air.” DeMarco Murray, who set a Cowboys’ single-game record with 253 yards rushing against the Rams in his first start last season, had five carries for 26 yards and caught four passes for 16 yards. On the Cowboys’ opening 13-play drive, Murray converted third-and-10 when Romo scrambled out of trouble and dumped the pass to the running back, who made a quick move around two defenders. But Dallas had to settle for Dan Bailey’s 38-yard field goal after Ogletree let a ball go through his hands on a third-and-6 play.

Stafford injures hand, Lions lose 31-20 to Raiders
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The pivotal third preseason game for Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions turned out to be a Bay Area bruiser. Stafford threw for 68 yards until leaving with an injury to his non-throwing hand in Detroit’s 31-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders on Saturday. Defensive end Dave Tollefson drove Stafford to the ground after an incomplete pass in the second quarter. Team trainers wrapped Stafford’s left hand in heavy bandages and a brace on the sideline. Shaun Hill took over on Detroit’s next possession. Oakland sidelined several more Detroit players. Cornerback Bill Bentley departed with a shoulder injury and Chris Houston with a left ankle injury in the first half for the Lions (tied for No. 11 in the AP Pro32). Running back Kevin Smith also left with a right ankle injury and trainers wrapped bandages around

Mikel Leshoure’s midsection after his final run. The Raiders remained mostly injury free — one of the bright spots from the starting unit — and relied on backup Terrelle Pryor to provide the spark. Carson Palmer again lacked the poise and polish of a seasoned veteran, dazzling at times with crisp passes, but also throwing two interceptions in another on-again, offagain performance. The second interception, however, was bobbled by Eddie McGee and into the hands of linebacker Stephen Tulloch. Palmer completed 17-of-26 passes for 181 yards until he was replaced by Pryor in the third quarter. Pryor scrambled for 59 yards and later shook off a sack for a 17-yard touchdown run. The former Ohio State standout also threw a 39-yard TD to Juron Criner, who twisted back to haul in the underthrown ball over a defender, and a 76-yard pass across his body to Criner running a post pattern across the middle for another score. Pryor’s final line: 3 for 5 for 137 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for 90 yards and a score on five carries. The highlights for Oakland’s first-team offense were limited. Darrius Heyward-Bey caught a 41-yard pass between the hands of Justin Miller in the second quarter for the longest completion by Palmer of the preseason. Darren McFadden fumbled on Oakland’s fifth play

Padilla made it 10-0, ending the game. Despite the mercy-rule loss, Elizondo was happy with her team’s performance. “These girls want it and are working hard. They are out here working together and helping each other out,” she said. “I was pleased with them. St. Pius X is a good team and we will see them up there at state. I was pleased to be able to do as well as we did against them.” After three games, Elizondo said that the flow and matching up defensively are areas her team needs to work on. “We are going to work on the flowing of the team; flowing up and flowing back,” she said. “We need to work a little bit on our defense in terms of who goes out and gets a person.” Goddard’s next match is Tuesday at Ruidoso at 6 p.m. email@example.com

Sam Bradford played the entire first half for the Rams, and was 6-of-17 passing for 64 yards. He was sacked twice and under pressure plenty of other times. The Rams had only 114 total yards before halftime, a week after scoring TDs on their first two drives against Kansas City in a 31-17 win. St. Louis lost 38-3 at Indianapolis in its preseason opener. “Today was probably our worst performance in the three games. ... We’re still pretty vanilla,” Bradford said. “I don’t think it was anything major. I think it’s just getting some of the smaller details cleaned up.” Running back Steven Jackson started but never touched the ball, as was the plan. St. Louis plays at home against Baltimore in its final preseason game Thursday, when Fisher plans to use Jackson and the rest of his starters extensively. Even with a fake punt for a 30-yard gain and an offside penalty that got the Rams inside the 10, they didn’t score when Bradford had consecutive incompletions from the 5. That included fourth down when Fisher opted against a chip-shot field goal for Zuerlein, who made kicks of 55 and 52 yards.
inside the 1-yard line, rookie coach Dennis Allen challenged the call and officials ruled the running back crossed the goal line before losing the ball to put Oakland (No. 23) ahead 7-3 lead.

Garcia builds a 2-shot lead at Barclays B4 Sunday, August 26, 2012
FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) — Bethpage Black lived up its reputation because of the greens, which in some cases looked brown. Sergio Garcia called them the fastest putting surfaces he could recall. Nick Watney referred to them as extreme. More than one player suggested the course was unplayable Saturday in The Barclays, certainly late in the afternoon as the sun baked out the public course on Long Island. And yes, there were references to Shinnecock Hills, the private club on Long Island where the greens were out of control on the final day of the 2004 U.S. Open. Garcia managed them just fine. With no bogeys over his final eight holes, he turned a three-shot deficit into a twoshot lead over Nick Watney with a 2-under 69. Such were the conditions that Garcia was the only player
among the final 18 to finish who broke 70. “The course is extremely firm,” he said. “The greens, just probably some of the fastest greens I’ve ever played. Just one of those days where you knew it was going to be tough and you have to hold on very tight, and just kind of hope for the best.” Garcia went four years without winning on the PGA Tour and now has a chance to make it two in a row and return to the top 10 in the world. He was at 10-under 203, and only four players were within four shots of the lead. Watney, who made five putts over 15 feet, went after another one on the 18th hole and this one cost him. The ball raced 10 feet by the hole, and he missed it coming back for his only official three-putt of the round. That gave him an even-par 71, though still in good

shape to make a run at his first win of the year. “The course just kind of beat you up,” Watney said. He got one small measure of revenge by making a 35foot putt on the par-3 17th for the only birdie of the round. By late afternoon, the green was so firm that shots landing near the front pin settled in the rough or fringe behind the green. Tiger Woods, who started the third round three shots out of the lead, three-putted for bogey three times on the front nine alone. He had another three-putt on the 14th hole, this one from 15 feet, and had a 72 that put him six shots behind. “I don’t remember blowing putts by 8 to 10 feet,” Woods said. “So that was a bit of a shocker.” He knew what to expect on the first hole, when he watched Gary Christian lean on his putter and nearly fall over because the club had no traction on the slippery surface. Kevin Stadler played early, when the greens still had some moisture, and had a remarkable round of 65 without any bogeys. He moved up from a tie for 42nd to alone in third place, three shots behind. Brandt Snedeker started strong and closed with nine pars, which was equally impressive, for a 68 that put him four back. Phil Mickelson might still be in the game. Twice a runner-up at Bethpage Black — both times in the U.S. Open — Mickelson played early Saturday and had a 67. That eventually put him in the large group at 4-under 209 that included Woods, Louis Oosthuizen, Lee Westwood and Charl Schwartzel, an impressive collection of players who have either won a major or been No. 1 in the world. “If you play well, you can shoot a decent score, but as the day goes on, the course just gets harder and harder,” Garcia said. “No doubt playing in the morning makes it a little bit easier.

Sergio Garcia hits his tee shot on the fifth hole during the third round of The Barclays at Bethpage State Park in Farmingdale, N.Y., Saturday.
Even though the greens were still firm, they were probably not as firm and probably not quite as fast. It’s just we know what Bethpage Black is all about. We know it’s a tough golf course, and you’ve just got to realize that’s the way it’s going to be.” And so it was. Slugger White, the tour’s vice president of rules and competition, disputed the idea that course was on the verge of being unplayable. “The golf course is not unplayable,” he said. White conceded a few greens became “crusty,” particularly at Nos. 2 and 8, and that the staff was thinking there would be more cloud cover. He went out to the greens after the last group came through and said, “I saw no issues.” “Players always want firm and fast,” he said. “It seems like when we give them firm and fast, they don’t want firm and fast. I hear Tiger say it was too soft on Thursday. And then some guy walks off the tee and says, ‘Have you guys run out of water?’ Where do you go? We’re doing the best we
can.” Watney didn’t entirely agree. “There’s firm and fast, and then there’s this,” Watney said. “I mean, this is pretty extreme.” Snedeker not only boosted his chances for a second win this year, it might be enough for him to be a Ryder Cup pick. He had four birdies in seven holes, and equally impressive was finishing with nine straight pars. “Just got on a run with the putter,” Snedeker said. “Was on the edge all day. Got some lucky breaks out there. You just can’t hit greens out there, I don’t care what anybody says. The greens are pretty much unplayable for the most part. You can’t hit them. Just really, really a tough test.” And this from a guy with a 68. The compliments were far less flattering down the leaderboard. “The worst course setup I have ever played in 13 years on tour. They have ruined what is a great course, greens like concrete stupid pins,” Ian Poulter said on
Twitter after his 76. He followed that with another tweet: “played poorly today & no excuse for my play I was rubbish. but I do know my job & trade & the golf course today was borderline unplayable.” Most extreme was the turnaround at the top. Watney had a three-shot lead walking off the 10th hole. Three holes later, it was gone. With his first poor swing of the day, Watney went from the middle of the 11th fairway to the right bunker and made bogey, while Garcia holed a 20-foot birdie putt. Watney followed with a tee shot well to the left to set up another bogey, and the lead was gone. And on the par -5 13th, Garcia made birdie to take the lead. But it wasn’t easy. “This will tell you how fast it was,” Garcia said. “Usually when you are putting on fast greens, you have an idea where the ball is going to stop. And today, you did not. You thought the ball was going to stop 2 feet behind the hole, and it went 6. It was pretty much as simple as that.”
tember,” Cherington said. “We just haven’t performed on the field. As a team we haven’t performed. ... This is not about the four players we gave up — anything particularly they did wrong. We just didn’t perform as a team.” Beckett was a key part of the team that won the 2007 World Series, but he was also the ringleader last year when the ballclub went 720 in September and missed a playoff spot on the final day of the season. Reports of players drinking beer and eating fried chicken in the clubhouse during games surfaced afterward, and Beckett’s haughty demeanor — and rising ERA — continued to alienate fans. The 2003 World Series MVP with the Florida Marlins, Beckett now moves from fried chicken to the land of In-N-Out Burger, bringing with him a pair of other players who were not
productive enough to justify their contracts. Beckett was due $31.5 million over the next two years; Gonzalez has $127 million coming through 2018; Crawford is due $102.5 million over the next five seasons. Both Cherington, who replaced Theo Epstein after the September collapse, and manager Bobby Valentine, who was brought in to replace Terry Francona, defended their departing players. But Valentine agreed that change was needed in the clubhouse. “Yes. It was necessary,” he said. “(It) just didn’t seem like it mixed as well as it should.”
Players traded in August have to first pass through waivers. Any team with a worse record than Los Angeles could have claimed Gonzalez, Beckett and Crawford before the Dodgers, but it would have had to pick up their contracts. Instead, the teams worked out a deal that reshuffled the NL West race and had the rest of baseball talking, too. “It’s surprising,” New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “You’re not used to seeing that many big names go in one trade — a bunch of All-Stars.”
BoSox send Gonzalez, Beckett, Crawford to Dodgers
BOSTON (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers are stocking up for the stretch run with some new, expensive players who couldn’t help the Boston Red Sox make it to the postseason this year or last. The Dodgers acquired first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, pitcher Josh Beckett and injured outfielder Carl Crawford from Boston on Saturday, hoping to boost their playoff hopes by taking on the underperforming and high-priced stars who failed to thrive in a fractious Red Sox clubhouse. Boston also sent infielder Nick Punto and about $11 million in cash to Los Angeles in the nine-player trade that was the biggest in Dodgers history. In return, the Red Sox got first baseman James Loney, pitcher Allen Webster, infielder Ivan DeJesus Jr. and two players to be named while shedding more than $250 million in salaries through 2018. “We understand that you have to spend money to be good in this league,” said Magic Johnson, the former NBA star who is part of the rich new Dodgers ownership
group that has dramatically revamped their roster in the last month. “When we came in, we made it clear that we want to build the Dodgers back to what they once were,” Dodgers president Stan Kasten said. Los Angeles, which trailed the San Francisco Giants in the NL West by three games at the time of the trade, has in the past month acquired shortstop Hanley Ramirez, outfielder Shane Victorino, starter Joe Blanton and reliever Brandon League. The latest deal comes less than a week before the Aug. 31 deadline for players to be eligible for the postseason. “It’s just exciting,” Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp said. “Everybody wants to win, and the guys up there are really making a statement and showing us that they want to win just as bad as we do.” For the Red Sox, who entered the night 13 1/2 games back in the AL East, the trade signaled a concession for 2012 and a chance to rebuild without hefty contracts given during an undisciplined foray into free
agency that, Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington conceded, has not worked out. “It gives us an opportunity to build the next great Red Sox team,” Cherington said. “We just felt like to get to be a team we believe in and a team the fans deserve, to sustain winning year after year, it was going to take something more than cosmetic changes. It was going to take something bold.” The Red Sox will save $261 million in salaries through 2018, plus a few million more for the rest of this season. Boston will send $11 million going to the Dodgers as part of the deal, according to a baseball official with knowledge of the deal who spoke on condition of anonymity because the financial terms were not public. “The bottom line is we haven’t won enough games. That goes back to last Sep-

Rockies rally for 4-3 victory over Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) — The Colorado Rockies are building for the future, and their prospects are taking advantage of the opportunity. Andrew Brown hit his first career homer, pinchhitter Josh Rutledge had a two-run shot and the Rock-
ies rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday. Colorado grabbed the lead for good when Carlos Gonzalez used his speed to beat out a potential doubleplay ball in the seventh inning, allowing DJ
LeMahieu to come home for a 4-3 lead. Carlos Torres (3-1) threw 2 1/3 scoreless innings as four relievers combined for five innings of one-hit ball, leading the Rockies to their sixth win in seven games. “It’s good for our kids, as young as we are,” manager Jim T racy said. “To be involved in games like this, and the realization we are playing in this type of game, there is no room for error.” Brett Jackson hit a tworun homer for Chicago, which has lost five of six and seven of nine. “He had some good swings,” Cubs manager
Dale Sveum said. “That should be helping him out confidence-wise.” Jackson connected in the Cubs’ three-run fourth inning against Alex White, belting a drive to center for his second homer in two days and No. 3 for his career — all in the last week. Rutledge hit for White in the fifth and drove the first pitch he saw from Brooks Raley over the wall in left, trimming the Cubs’ lead to 3-2. Rutledge has been out of the starting lineup since Aug. 19 with a sore quadriceps. “Everything he’s done is

impressive. We’re trying to nurse him along,” T racy said. Raley, recalled from T riple-A Iowa before the game, allowed five hits, struck out four and walked three in his fourth career start. Brown hit a tying solo shot off Manuel Corpas in the sixth. Brown hit 24 home runs in 100 games with T riple-A Colorado Springs before the Rockies promoted him on July 17. His first home run in the majors arrived in his 26th game. “It was a nice milestone. Hopefully it’s not the last,”
Brown said. “It was a great feeling to come through at the time. “I’m trying not to do too much. You always press when you try to do too much to prove you can do what you’ve been doing. I’m finally starting to get back to trying to meet the ball square.” Corpas (0-1) was charged with two runs in 1 1/3 innings against his former team as the Cubs dropped to 5-18 in August. Rafael Betancourt worked the ninth for his 26th save in 31 chances. He has converted nine of 10 opportunities in August.

NM’s 2011 pecan crop ranked 2nd-largest in US LAS CRUCES (AP) — A new federal report shows New Mexico’s crop of pecans was the second-biggest in the nation last year in both size and cash value. The state’s growers produced about 61 million pounds of the nuts in 2011. The amount was down about 5 million pounds from 2010. Georgia churned out 102 million pounds last year. Texas yielded just 32 million pounds in a year that was known for its severe drought. Doña Ana and Eddy counties are the center of the state’s pecan growing area. Eddy County agriculture extension agent Wood Houghton tells the Las Cruces Sun-News that many local far mers are
switching over to pecans. The 4,200 Eddy County acres now in pecans is up from 3,100 acres five years ago. The average price for the crop didn’t reach the record-setting price level of two years ago, according to the report issued last month by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Notable about New Mexico’s recent crops is that there hasn’t been a large swing in size from year to year, said Richard Heerema, pecan extension specialist at New Mexico State University’s Cooperative Extension Service. That’s different from a trend that characterized most of the 1990s and 2000s, when trees tended to produce a heavy crop one year and a light crop the
next. “The alternate bearing pattern ... appears to be breaking up in New Mexico,” he said. Heerema said he believes the pattern has broken up for three reasons since 2008. The reasons include far mers’ decision to prune trees, younger trees and a freeze several years ago in southern New Mexico that flipflopped its heavy and light crop cycles with respect to the rest of the state. That region produces about 20 percent of the crop statewide, he said. So, while 2011 was a largerproduction year for the rest of the state, the southeaster n region had a light year, according to Heerema. According to the report, New
Mexico’s pecan crop was valued at about $162.8 million, about $24 million less than in 2010, which was a record-setting year. Georgia’s pecan crop raked in about $264.6 million in 2011, the most out of 14 pecan-producing states. The average price paid per inshell pound for New Mexico’s crop was about $2.67, compared to $2.83 per pound the year before, according to the report. Prices were at least 50 cents a pound less just two years ago. Las Cruces-area farmer Greg Daviet said prices for pecans have been strong the past two years. But late last winter, when farmers were selling the crop, the price paid for pecans dropped.
“The market on the growers’ side weakened significantly,” he said. “I’m guessing it had a lot to do with demand falling off, really because of two years of high prices.”
Far mers and experts have said the market is still being buoyed by Chinese buyers, who’ve made a heavy impact on the domestic and foreign pecan markets over the past decade. “The numbers are debatable,” said Daviet. “But they’re buying from 10 to 30 percent of the crop.” This year’s local pecan crop is still in the growing stages and won’t be harvested until around Thanksgiving.
AP Interview: Obama on Romney’s ‘extreme’ views
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama said Mitt Romney has himself into locked “extreme positions” on economic and social issues and would surely impose them if elected, trying to discredit his Republican rival at the biggest political moment of his life. In an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday, Obama said Romney lacks serious ideas, refuses to “own up” to the responsibilities of what it takes to be president, and deals in factually dishonest arguments that could soon haunt him in face-to-face debates. Obama also of fered a glimpse of how he would govern in a second term of divided government, insisting rosily that the forces of the election would help break Washington’s stalemate. He said he would be willing to make a range of compromises with Republicans, confident there are some who would rather make deals than remain part of “one of the least productive Congresses in American history.” Mainly, Obama was intent on countering Romney even before his challenger got to the Republican National Convention, which starts Monday in Tampa, Fla. In doing so, the president depicted his opponent as having accumulated ideas far outside the mainstream with no room to turn back. “I can’t speak to Gov.
Romney’s motivations,” Obama said. “What I can say is that he has signed up for positions, extreme positions, that are very consistent with positions that a number of House Republicans have taken. And whether he actually believes in those or not, I have no doubt that he would carry forward some of the things that he’s talked about.” The president was at ease but doggedly on script, steering even personal-themed questions about Romney and running mate Paul R yan into answers about starkly different visions for helping the middle class. Romney, a successful former executive of a private equity firm and onetime Massachusetts governor, has offered himself as a business-minded alternative to Obama and has seized on voter concerns about joblessness and the direction of the nation. Nearly 10 weeks before Election Day, the race is remarkably stable and reflective of a sharply divided nation, with registered voters about evenly split on their choice and nearly a quarter of them unsure or still willing to change their mind. Across the interview, Obama’s messages often seemed directed at moderate and independent voters whose sway could make the difference. Obama’s depiction of a Romney presidency grew most pointed when he was
asked if his Republican challenger has no core, as one of Obama’s top advisers once put it. The president suggested that whatever Romney really stands for in life is secondary to the promises Romney has made in the campaign. In explaining his accusation of “extreme” positions, the president cited Romney’s call for across-theboard tax cuts that Obama said would mostly help the rich at the expense of everyone else and cost the nation $5 trillion. Obama singled out Romney’s opposition to tax credits for producers of wind energy, the kind of issue that carries large political resonance in a battleground state such as Iowa. And Obama alluded to the provocative issue of abortion, suddenly thrust to the fore this week when Republican Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin said the female body has a way to “shut that whole thing down” when a woman is the victim of “legitimate rape.” The Republican platform
in Tampa calls for a ban on abortion with no specific exceptions for rape or other circumstances. Obama predicted that a President Romney would not “stand in the way” if Congress gave him a bill that stripped away women’s control over their reproductive health. Romney is on record, however, as not opposing abortion in cases of rape and incest or if it will save the mother’s life. Obama also sought to chip away at Romney’s trustworthiness, taking fresh shots at Romney’s refusal to release years of tax retur ns for public inspection. He said that position was indicative of a candidate who has a “lack of willingness to take responsibility for what this job entails.” Yet it is the economy that has driven this election and has dominated Obama’s message of a middle-class revival. “We aren’t where we need to be. Everybody agrees with that,” said Obama, who inherited an economy in free fall and now bears
responsibility for a recovery that remains weak. “But Gov. Romney’s policies would make things worse for middle-class families and offer no prospect for long-term opportunity for those striving to get into the middle class,” the president said. A Romney spokesman, Ryan Williams, jumped on Obama’s account in the interview that the economy clearly needs to get better. “Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan agree,” Williams said. “The American people know they aren’t better off than they were four years ago.” Obama expressed confidence that even voters whose lives have not improved during his term will stick with him as they assess the two candidates. “If they saw Gov. Romney offering serious proposals that offered some sort of concrete ways in which middle-class families would be helped, then I could understand them thinking about that choice,” Obama said. “But that’s not what’s happening.” Obama said he is the candidate whose policies

have historically helped the middle class on issues that people care about and that shape the economy — education, manufacturing, science and research, Medicare, debt reduction, tax rates, health care, consumer protection, college aid, energy. Williams responded that Obama has piled up national debt and presided over high unemployment.
Motorcycle safety for motorists and bikers alike Roswell Daily Record
“But officer, I just didn’t see that motorcycle!” In three and a half years writing this little column, I’ve never written about motorcycle safety. Shame on me! Since I am not a motorcyclist, I guess that it just has not ever been a focus. There are lots of safety hints about riding motorcycles, how to dress for safety, how to ride with a passenger, riding in a group, and many other factors. However, it seems to me that motorcyclists are usually very good at riding, and that their biggest challenge is watching out for the rest of us! There is a phenomenon called “motion induced blindness” which explains
how drivers pull out in front of motorcycles and then say “I didn’t see him!” Initially, this idea was presented as a flying issue for aircraft pilots. Military pilots were told to keep their heads and eyes moving. Scan the horizon for a short distance, stop momentarily, and repeat the process. (I think of the movie “Top Gun”). The idea is to avoid fixing one’s gaze for more than a few seconds on any single object, and holds true to locate other bicycles, pedestrians or motorcycles as well as aircraft. Pilots were told “keep your eyes moving and your head on a swivel,” an appropriate concept
ORLANDO, Fla.—Four students from Mountain View Middle School recently participated in the STAR (Students Taking Action with Recognition) events at Family, Career and Community Leaders of America’s (FCCLA) 2012 National Leadership Meeting. Shyla Ervin and Tyrah Johnson, who were eighthgraders at Mountain View Middle School, received gold medals in Illustrated Talk. Shyla Ervin is the daughter of Rick and Melissa Ervin. Her partner, Tyrah Johnson, is the daughter of Terry and Tara Johnson. Illustrated Talk is one of 16 national STAR events available to FCCLA students. Illustrated Talk is an individual or team event and recognizes participants who make oral presentations about issues concerning Family and Consumer Sciences and/or related occupations. Their community service work was at a local elder care facility which they thoroughly enjoyed. Alejandro Olvera and Gerardo Ruiz received silver medals in their STAR event
which was Chapter Service Display. This event is a team event which recognizes chapters that develop and implement an in-depth service project that makes a worthwhile contribution to families, schools and communities. Students must use Family and Consumer Sciences content and skills to address and take action on a community need. Their project revolved around our Spring River Zoo. Alejandro Olvera, who was a seventhgrader last year, is the son of Julia Talavera and Alejandro Olvera of Roswell. Gerardo Ruiz is the son of Gerardo and Maria Ruiz of Roswell and was a sixth-grade student last school year. Both boys are currently FCCLA state officers of the organization and had additional duties at the National Conference. Darlene Jones is Mountain View Middle School’s FCCLA adviser and supervised her students on the trip. She is extremely proud of her students and their accomplishments. Their medals were present-
even if you are driving a car in Roswell. So let’s talk about some things that all car and truck drivers should know about motorcycles. We know that more than half of all fatal motorcycle crashes involve another vehicle. Most of the time, the motorist, not the
motorcyclist, is at fault. There are, of course, a lot more cars and trucks than motorcycles on the road, and some drivers just don’t “recognize” a motorcycle. They unintentionally ignore it, perhaps caused by motion induced blindness as we mentioned earlier. I’ve often thought that a motorcycle rider would be safer in California, where drivers seem to be more aware of them, than in New Mexico. We as drivers must also recognize that because of its small size, a motorcycle can easily be hidden in a car’s blind spot. It may also look farther away than

it is, and it is difficult to judge a motorcycle’s speed. Therefore, take an extra moment to look for motorcycles when you are changing lanes, turning at intersections, or just backing out of your driveway. We should also allow more distance when following a motorcycle. Since they often slow down by downshifting or merely rolling off the throttle, a car may not be given a visual warning that the bike is slowing down. You won’t always see a brake light. Additionally, motorcyclists often adjust their position within a driving lane so that they can be seen more easily or to minimize the effects of road debris, passing vehicles, and wind.
When they adjust lane position, they are not showing off or being reckless. Maneuverability is one of a motorcycle’s better characteristics, especially at slower speeds and with good road conditions, but don’t expect them to always be able to dodge out of the way. Remember, while stopping distances are about the same as for cars, road conditions make stopping quickly more difficult. Finally, just remind yourself as you drive that our friends riding motorcycles have equal rights to that road and that they deserve safe travel. Remember, under that helmet may very well be your neighbor, your friend or your relative!
issues such as teen violence prevention, traffic safety, family issues, career exploration, and much more. FCCLA programs enrich student learning, improve selfesteem, and serve students with a range of ability levels, economic situations, and cultural influences. FCCLA: The Ultimate Leadership Experience is a dynamic and effective nation-
al student organization that helps young men and women become leaders and address important personal, family, work, and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences Education. Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is unique among youth organizations because its programs are planned and run by its members.

To make a difference, remember these dates:
• Sept. 8, 9 a.m., National Planting Day Celebration at Fire Station No. 3;
“green starts here” presents
Toss No Mas
VANESSA KAHIN VISTAS EDITOR COURTESY PHOTOS
A statewide mission that asks New Mexicans—through its programs and its catchy name—to “toss no more,” will soon make its way to Roswell, where it will inspire locals to plant, clean and recycle. Toss No Mas, a New Mexico Clean and Beautiful initiative, takes place statewide from August-October, said city of Roswell Marketing Director and Keep Roswell Beautiful Coordinator Renee Roach in an email statement. Whereas a Great American Cleanup event takes place in the spring, Roach noted, Toss No Mas reminds people of the need to protect the environment in the fall. It is a second time during the year in which groups composed of family or friends, co-workers or just likeminded, environmentallyconscious folks, get together to beautify their community. Roswell’s version of the statewide environmental program will feature community events and culminate on Oct. 13, a day designated as Community Cleanup Day. City officials are ready and poised to give potential Toss No Mas volunteers all the tools they need to pick up litter Oct. 13, or on any other day from Sept. 8Oct. 31 that best suits their schedule. Officials will even give volunteers T-shirts so that they stand out as they trek along streets and neighborhoods, beautifying the environment. There will be at least two major events during which officials will share the “go green” vibes and offer volunteers the chance to pre-register for the cleanup and get their free can-
vas gloves and cleaning supplies. On Sept. 8 at 9 a.m., there will be a National Planting Day celebration at Fire Station No. 3 on Wilshire Boulevard. “(KRB) is partnering with Leadership Roswell Alumni and (the) NM Youth ChalleNGe to plant the Great American Freedom Garden designed by Ken Smith, parks superintendent,” Roach said in the email. Volunteers can attend the event, sponsored by a grant from Keep America Beautiful and Lowe’s Home Improvement Stores, and pick up free seed packets. “This is Keep America Beautiful’s first year to host National Planting Day,” Roach said. “National Planting Day celebrates the value and power of native species in restoring ecological balance to the environment, while creating greener, more beautiful communities. With a national focus on Sept. 8 and activities happening throughout the fall, national nonprofit Keep America Beautiful, its affiliates and its partners are mobilizing Americans to plant native species of trees, flowers, and plants.” The planting of the freedom garden will allow visitors the opportunity to get tips on tree pruning and care from new certified tree worker, climber and specialist Jeromy Aragon. Another event during which visitors may pre-register for the Oct. 13 cleanup will be the National Family Day Party at Spring River Park and Zoo. Scheduled Sept. 24 from 5-8 p.m., the event, hosted by KRB, will include entertainment, free food tickets from the concession and family games. “We’ll have dancing on the patio ... (and) drawings for prizes for all registrants,” Roach said. “It’s going to be a good, family-fun time.” On Oct. 12 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Roswell Convention Center lobby, potential volun-
teers will have one last chance to register for the cleanup. Although the day will include late registration, there is no guarantee that those who register on this day will get a T-shirt, as these are given on a firstcome, first-serve basis. Teams that have already registered may pick up their T-shirts and cleaning supplies. Roach noted that Oct. 13 is not the only day during which volunteers may pick up litter throughout Roswell. Although it is the Community Cleanup Day, teams may pick up litter at any point from Sept. 8-Oct. 31, she said. For example, a litter cleanup team from Tobosa Developmental Services will be doing their part throughout an entire week that’s best suited for the volunteers. Joan Blodgett, president of KRB and executive secretary for Tobosa, said the organization will have 40 volunteers picking up trash. Blodgett has a motto for her approach to community cleanup. (everyone) “If picked up three pieces of trash, and threw them away, we would no longer have a litter problem,” she said. “Just three pieces of trash.” Aside from the community events, those interested in participating in the community cleanup may register by filling out the for m online at KeepRoswellBeautiful.com, or by calling 637-6224. Registration for ms may be faxed to 6246820, or emailed to email@example.com. For more information about National Planting Day, visit kab.org/site/PageServer?pagena me=National_Planting_Day.

First day of school can be trying for clingy kids
Q: Our daughter starts kindergarten next week, and I’m worried about dropping her off at school that first day. She’s very attached to us, and even a little clingy. We don’t want to make a scene. Jim: The first day of school is an emotional roller coaster. Moms and Dads are sometimes in tears over the fact that their baby has grown up so fast, and kids are often full of trepidation at the prospect of entering a new and unfamiliar environment.
My mom and I experienced this trauma on my first day of kindergarten. She had to drag me through the doors kicking and screaming. But my negative reaction was short-lived. After the initial shock of that first parting, I quickly fell in love with school. I even developed a crush on my kindergarten
teacher, Mrs. Smith! A little separation anxiety on the first day of school is only natural. Most kids quickly overcome their fears and look forward to going to school every day, just as I did. Hopefully, you’ve been “talking up” the experience with your daughter and helping her look forward to all the fun she’ll have learning new things and meeting new friends. If, despite your best ef forts, your daughter throws a fit on that first day, the best thing you can do for her is to lovingly but firmly insist that she join the teacher and the other students. Volunteering to stay in her room beyond the appointed drop-off time will only prolong the separation trauma, not to mention disrupt the class. Many parents are pleasantly surprised, and maybe even a little disappointed,

to discover that their kids have no trouble saying goodbye on that first day of school. Rather than whimpering and acting afraid, they hug Mom and Dad and then run to their classmates without so much as looking back. Q: My wife and I have been married for six years and have two small children. Overall, we have a good marriage, but my wife’s impulsive spending habits are a constant source of stress. Every month, we have the same argument when the credit card bill arrives. She cries, apologizes, but then keeps
spending! Juli: Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. We probably all fit that definition to some extent! It’s clear from your description of what is happening in your marriage that your current strategy isn’t working. Money is a very emotional topic. People spend and save money for a variety of reasons that are often rooted in emotional needs like security, comfort, relational power and validation.

Add random raised stenciling to walls for extra impact. Many popular fabrics have a damask pattern and you can use this pattern randomly on the wall. Steps: 1. Draw level guide lines in chalk around the room where you wish to apply the stencil. Lay them out in a high, low and middle triangle pattern and try not to have any of them at the exact same level. 2. Tape up stencil and thickly trowel joint compound over the stencil. Remove stencil starting from a top corner. Let dry and sand edges a little if desired. 3. Paint a solid satin base color. For this example, I used a medium gold.
4. A brown glaze can be applied over the wall to add an aged plaster look. Then you can reapply the stencil and brush on contrasting colors like metallic bronze, red and black. 5. Add some faded paint on versions of the stencil. Using the stencils, register marks and chalk level marks, stencil to fill in a section of the damask pattern with brown glaze.
You can also use a colored plaster like Venetian or lusterstone to complete the embossed design. Then while still wet push jewels into the plaster.

Instead of reacting to the bill every month, it is time for you to be proactive in addressing this issue in your marriage. Your local church may of fer free financial counseling or budgeting courses. One of my favorites, which is offered nationwide, is called Financial Peace University by Dave Ramsey. Taking this course will help you and your wife work through a budget based on principles that you can agree on. (You can find out more infor mation by going to daveramsey.com.)
Because financial issues also involve emotions and relational tension, you may want to take the additional step of seeking marriage counseling. Yes, these steps require an investment of time and effort up front. However, financial dis-

Mix things up and cool down with a wine cocktail Mr. and Mrs. Goodwin
BY MICHELLE LOCKE FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Remember wine coolers? Turns out they’re not actually all that cool these days. But don’t put that cork back in the bottle just yet. Why not mix up a few wine cocktails, which — unlike their commercial predecessors — are quite sophisticated and of-the-moment. “Wine-based cocktails are something that I think have really taken off,” says Amy Currens, wine director at Prospect, a restaurant serving contemporary American cuisine in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood. Wine cocktails are a year-round drink, but they’re especially good for summer, adding a fun touch to backyard barbecues and pairing well with grilled meats thanks to their grape underpinnings. One of the cocktails served at Prospect, named appropriately enough the Prospector, consists of blended scotch, Benedictine, bitters and Madeira, the fortified wine from Portugal. “Those red fruits that come out through the Madeira would complement roasted meat,” says Currens. At the Bluestem Brasserie in San Francisco, the Violet Femme cocktail uses red seedless grapes, absinthe, cabernet sauvignon, sparkling wine, simple syrup and bitters. Port and sherry make good additions to a cocktail, as does moscato, which is often fruity and a bit fizzy. Sonoma County-based Redtree Wine has come up with some cocktail recipes for its Redtree moscato wine including Bumble & Bubbles, made of 3 ounces of prosecco, 1 ounce moscato, and two dashes of orange bitters. Ready to mix up your own grape cocktail? Here’s the recipe for the Prospector: Start to finish: 5 minutes Servings: 1 2 ounces blended scotch 3 ⁄4 ounce bual Madeira 1 ⁄2 ounce Benedictine 3 dashes bitters Combine all ingredients in a large tumbler filled with ice.

We have seven different printers in my office and home (most the same brand), and each uses a different cartridge! The cartridges are not cheap, either! That’s why we use “recycled” ones that are reasonably priced. Heloise

For Better or For Worse
Dear Heloise: I look forward to your article every day in The Orange County (Calif.) Register! You told how to recycle greeting cards to a certain size in order to turn them into postcards. I can’t find those measurements. Please help. Agnes in California
Agnes, happy to help, and this is a green hint as well as one that saves money. Standard postcard size is 4 1/4 inches by 6 inches and .016 inches thick. Just cut the desired area down to those measurements, and you are ready to send a quick note. There are many other things that also can be made into postcards, so use your imagination. Just make sure it’s not larger, or it can be considered oversized and be charged letter postage. Heloise P.S.: As of Jan. 22, 2012, postage on a postcard is now 32 cents.
Dear Readers: Here are some money-saving hints: * When eating out, order only water to drink. * Look for coupons on things you buy frequently. * Pack a lunch to take to work. * Turn out lights when not in a room. * Combine errands to save gasoline. Heloise
The Wizard of Id
Dear Heloise: I do a lot of crafting and have many spools of ribbon. I found an easy way to store them in one of my crafting cabinets. I took an inexpensive tension curtain rod and ran all of the spools onto it. I then fit it into one of the cabinets, and now my ribbon is easily accessible. Not only does it keep them contained, but it also is easy to cut off just the amount I need. Pam in Florida

New Mexico is a leading state for export growth
SANTA FE—The International Trade Administration (ITA) recently announced new export data that shows New Mexico merchandise exports increased 63 percent in the first half of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011, growing from $944 million to $1.5 billion. This percentage growth topped the 7 percent national average for merchandise export growth for the same period. According to official U.S. Department of Commerce estimates, it is calculated that for every $1 billion in exports up to 6,250 jobs are created or supported. “Though roughly one-seventh of New Mexico manufactures export and a total of 921 companies export from a New Mexico location, we are working hard to increase both numbers,”
Gov. Susana Martinez said. “Not only through our international trade efforts but through improving the tax and regulatory environment and offering a steady stream of job training funds, we are making the state an excellent place for businesses to produce the goods and services that can be exported around the world.” In New Mexico, small and medium-sized enterprises with fewer than 500 employees accounted for 777 or 84 percent of the companies exporting from New Mexico. Small and medium-sized enterprises generated over 46 percent of total exports from New Mexico.
“This administration is focused on getting New Mexico companies to realize the potential of expanding
their markets to other countries,” said Economic Development Secretary Jon Barela. “As the national economy remains sluggish there are great opportunities for New Mexico companies worldwide, that is why the Economic Development Department’s Of fice of Inter national T rade has organized inter national trade missions, export workshops and established export offices in key markets.” New Mexico’s first half 2012 merchandise export sales outpaced the 2011 figures for the same period in many top destinations, including Israel (up 606 percent), Saudi Arabia (224 percent), Chile (126 percent), Brazil (125 percent) and France (72 percent). Key merchandise export categories include comput-

er and electronic products, fabricated metal products, machinery manufactures, food and kindred products, and transportation equipment. T rade to Mexico increased 68 percent, going from $216, 962,230 to $317,410,764, in two years. Mexico is a target trade country for the Martinez Administration. “Through the expanded ports of entry at the border and a focus on making the border area more friendly, transportation, manufacturing and logistics companies have experienced strong growth in the region,” Secretary Barela added.
For the six month period that just ended, the top five in export growth were D.C. with 162 percent; Nevada 39 percent; Arkansas 36
percent and West Virginia 31 percent.
In the U.S., less than 1 percent of America’s 30 million companies export, a figure that is substantially lower than all the other developed economies. Of the U.S companies that do export, close to 58 percent export to only one country and have not diversified to other export markets; this in spite of the fact that 95 percent of consumers reside outside the U.S.
The Office of International Trade (OIT) at the New Mexico Economic Development Department was created to promote New Mexico exports around the globe by helping companies identify new markets and locate distribution partners in promising markets. OIT maintains a network of international trade offices

Procter and Gamble’s CEO pay slips 6 percent to $15.2M PSMH announces new office
NEW YORK (AP) — Procter & Gamble Co.’s Chairman and CEO Bob McDonald’s compensation declined 6 percent to $15.2 million as the world’s largest consumer products maker’s performance has been tripped up with missteps in pricing and balancing growth in key markets McDonald, 59, who became CEO and president in June 2009 and added the title of chairman in January 2010, received a base salary of $1.6 million for the year ended June 30, according to documents filed Friday with the Securities and Exchange Commission. That was unchanged from the prior year. But his cash-based bonus of $2.4 million was down 8
percent, and he received stock options that were valued at $4.4 million, down 29 percent from $6.17 million in the prior year. McDonald’s stock awards rose 15 percent to $6.45 million. McDonald didn’t receive a performance-based cash bonus for the second year in a row. Other compensation rose 69 percent to $312.4 million, primarily because of increased air travel. Nearly 90 percent of McDonald’s pay is tied to performance. P&G looks at such measures as organic sales growth, which excludes acquisitions, and earnings-per-share growth. The Procter & Gamble board Compensation &
Leadership Development Committee’s report said it uses CEO pay at 25 other big companies, including Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Colgate-Palmolive, Johnson & Johnson and General Electric, as a guide in setting McDonald’s compensation. The maker of Tide detergent, Crest toothpaste and other consumer goods has been criticized for not pushing out new products and not cutting costs fast enough. The pressure is on since activist investor William Ackman disclosed in July he has a 1 percent stake in the company. When it released its fiscal fourth-quarter financial results earlier this month, P&G admitted to missteps in pricing and in balancing
growth in emerging markets, which account for about 30 percent of sales, with the realities of an uncertain global economy and lackluster market share growth. P&G reassured investors that its $10 billion cost-cutting plan and its strategy to prioritize investments in bringing new products to market and growing in its biggest and most profitable markets and its biggest emerging countries, are all on track. For the year ended June 30, P&G reported a 9 percent net income decline to $10.90 billion, or $3.66 per share. That compares with the previous year period of $11.93 billion, or $3.93 per share.
PSM Holdings Inc., through its wholly owned subsidiary, PSMI, is pleased to announce the opening of a new office in Steamboat Springs, Colo. This new office will come under the direction of our Regional Lending Center in Grand Junction, Colo. We are also excited to welcome Kathryn Pedersen as a mortgage loan originator in the Steamboat market. Kathryn is an experienced mortgage banker and a top producer in Colorado, closing more than $30 million in annual loan production.

dent and mortgage officer.
Ron Hanna, president and CEO of PSMH commented, “We are so pleased to have Kathryn join our team in Colorado. James Pulsipher and Jared Peterson from our Grand Junction Center are in the process of building an incredible regional operation, which leads our company in loan production. Kathryn joins a select group of mortgage professionals that are looking for a firm like ours that provides an array of mortgage products and caters to the consumer in a very unique way.”
