Robbery suspect killed in Lubbock
Herald Staff Report
An 18-year-old man wanted
in connection with an aggravated robbery in Big Spring,
died early Wednesday morning in Lubbock from stab
wounds.
According to a press release
from Lubbock police, officers
found Fabian Rios lying in
the grass near the front porch
of 2023 89th St.
in Lubbock with
stab wounds to the
chest, a little less
than an hour after midnight. Rios
was pronounced
dead at the scene
and homicide and
Rios
crime scene detectives were called in for a follow-up. Officers had initially
responded to a call regarding
a man who had been shot in
the head.
According to Lubbock police, Rios was believed to have
been in Lubbock for about a
week.
Lubbock Police believe
Rios’ killer left the scene in
a black Ford Explorer SportTrac SUV with a small pickup bed and a New Mexico
license plate. Anyone with information on the case can call
Crime Line at 806-741-1000.
Rios was wanted in connection with the aggravated
robbery of Big A’s Shaved
Ice which occurred June 9.
A second subject, Heriberto
Medina-Torres, 21, of Big
Spring, was interviewed the
next day of the robbery by police resulting from citizens’
tips. During the interview, he
confessed to the robbery, according to Big Spring Police.
Medina-Torres was arrested
on a charge of aggravated
robbery.
On June 12, the Big SpringHoward County Big Spring
Crime Stoppers Facebook
page posted Rios as a fugitive
wanted in connection to the
crime.

WASHINGTON — Management failures by the Obama
administration set the stage
for computer woes that paralyzed the president’s new
health care program last
fall, nonpartisan investigators said in a report released
Wednesday.
While the administration
was publicly assuring consumers that they would soon
have seamless online access
to health insurance, a chaotic procurement process was
about to deliver a stumbling
start.
After a months-long investigation, the Government Accountability Office found that
the administration lacked
“effective planning or oversight practices” for the development of HealthCare.gov,
the portal for millions of uninsured Americans.
As a result the government
incurred “significant cost increases, schedule slips and
delayed system functionality,” William Woods, a GAO
“Millions of taxpayer dollars were wasted to
build a website that didn’t work, all because
of bureaucratic incompetence.”
Sen. Orrin Hatch
R-Utah
contracting expert, said in
testimony prepared for a
hearing Thursday by the
House Energy and Commerce
Committee. The GAO is the
nonpartisan
investigative
agency of Congress.
Spokesman Aaron Albright
said the administration takes
its responsibility for contract
oversight seriously and has
already started carrying out
improvements that go beyond
GAO’s
recommendations.
The congressional investigators recommended a cost-control plan and other changes
to establish clear procedures
and improve oversight.
But Sen. Orrin Hatch, RUtah, one of the lawmakers
who requested the investiga-
tion, said, “Millions of taxpayer dollars were wasted to
build a website that didn’t
work, all because of bureaucratic incompetence.”
Investigators found that the
administration kept changing the contractors’ marching
orders for the HealthCare.gov
website, creating widespread
confusion and adding tens of
millions of dollars in costs.
Changes were ordered seemingly willy-nilly, including 40
times when government officials did not have the initial
authority to incur additional
costs.
The report faults the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service for ineffective
oversight. Known as CMS, the
agency is part of the Health
and Human Services Department and was designated to
administer Obama’s health
care law.
The GAO concluded:
— Contractors were not
given a coherent plan, and
instead jumped around from
issue to issue.
— The cost of a glitchy computerized sign-up system for
consumers ballooned from
$56 million to more than $209
million from September 2011
to February 2014. The cost of
the electronic backroom for
verifying applicants’ information jumped from $30 million to almost $85 million.
— CMS, representing the
administration, failed to follow up on how well the contractors performed.
— A third contract, for fixes
to the website, grew from $91
million in January to $175
million as of last month.
Two contractors initially
took the lead building the
system:

that initial month. The
electronic back office
had fewer problems.
A few months before
the launch, the CMS
agency notified CGI it
was so dissatisfied that
it would start withholding payments. Then it
rescinded that decision.
CMS ultimately paid
nearly all of CGI’s $12.5
million in fees, withholding only $267,000,
the report said. The
agency later ended its
contract with CGI. Another contractor, Accenture, was brought in
to make website fixes.
Confronted with a
public relations disaster, the White House
sent in a troubleshooter,
management consultant
Jeff Zients. He removed
CMS as project leader,
relegating it to a sup-
porting role.
CMS
administrator
Marilyn Tavenner later
personally apologized to
Congress, saying, “The
website has not worked
as well as it should.”
Zients’ rescue operation got the site working by early December.
Eventually, some 8 million people managed to
sign up, far exceeding
expectations.
Nonetheless, Health
and Human Services
Secretary
Kathleen
Sebelius stepped down
amid complaints by
White House officials
that the president was
blindsided by the problems.
The original contractors testified to Congress
that they did not have
nearly enough time to
test the system before it
on individuals until they
are ready to do so,” she
continued. “This simulation lab is an extra
opportunity to practice
in a simulated environment before they have
an opportunity to move
into the real setting.”
Funds for the purchase
was made available by a
private donation from
Marie Hall given late
last year to support the
expansion of the dental
hygiene program. The
gift is funding the expansion in three phases that
includes support for a
dental faculty chair and
a dental assisting faculty chair, faculty development and student
support services, the
simulation lab, extended online education
courses, and satellite
clinical sites.

ow curious to watch
“60 Minutes,” the
famously hard-hitting
TVnewsmagazine,
bless JPMorgan Chase CEO
Jamie Dimon with prime-time
beatification for hiring some
interns from poor backgrounds.
The segment’s headline is “Jobs
program benefits
Fortune 500 and
underprivileged
youth.”
“Many of the
country’s most
powerful CEOs are
finding that they
can do well by
also doing good,”
froma
growls Morley
harrop
Safer like the war
correspondent he
once was.
The subject is
Year Up, a “boot camp” that
grooms struggling young people
for corporate jobs. Let’s say this
right off: Year Up is a wonderful
program. Founded by tech entrepreneur Gerald Chertavian, it
deserves the highest praise.
But there’s Dimon sharing
the glory for doing the smallest of good — very small, given
the Wall Street behemoth’s $18
billion annual income. Safer’s
questions are so affectionate
that Dimon almost seems embarrassed being asked them.
“Now firms like J.P. Morgan
are actually paying Year Up
$23,000 per intern,” Safer says
with awe. Actually, the investment bank’s hotshots spend
more than that on one month’s
American Express bill.
“Has that investment paid off
for you?” Safer asks.
Yes, it has, answers Dimon.
His company has done well by
doing good.
But it’s done so much better by
doing bad.
For instance, JPMorgan Chase
recently settled government
charges that it palmed garbage
mortgages on unsuspecting
investors. At the bottom of this
subprime-mortgage food chain
were the low- and moderateincome borrowers milked by
exploding interest rates and punishing upfront fees. Many lost
their houses in the inevitable
financial collapse.
Since 2011, JPMorgan Chase
has made an estimated $185 million helping American companies renounce their U.S. citizenship to avoid paying taxes in this
country — all the while staying
put. We speak of the “inversion”
loophole, whereby a company
merges with a smaller one in
a lower-tax country and then
claims to be based there.
President Obama has called
companies exploiting this tax
trick “corporate deserters.” Exploitation of the loophole is expected to deprive the U.S. Treasury of close to $20 billion over
the next decade. Other taxpayers
will have to fill the gap — or we
could cut government programs,
including those that help “underprivileged youth.”
The investment banks say that
if they don’t do the deals, their
competitors will. That may be
true, but Wall Street owns Congress. If JPMorgan Chase really
wanted to make a patriotic gesture, it could lead an industry-
wide campaign urging Congress
to end the dodge.
Don’t these societally damaging activities rate at least
a dishonorable mention on
“60 Minutes”? Worry not. The
newsmagazine markets itself as
hard-nosed investigative journalism, so it will get around to
the “uncomfortable” part — to
the ugly details. Right?
“It’s no secret that Wall
Street’s image has been tarnished over the last couple of
years,” Safer eventually says,
letting mild skepticism creep
into his voice. He’s so scary that
Dimon feels obliged to respond
with a sheepish laugh.
Safer goes on: To what extent
is this activity “window dressing” to show “civic responsibility”?
Dimon responds: “I think we
are civically responsible. We
don’t want to drive successful
people down. You want to get
people who don’t have the opportunity, you want to give them
the opportunity.”
And “60 Minutes” lets it go at
that.
“60 Minutes” still does some
great investigative pieces, but
sheesh. Sometimes that clock
ticks down in a sad way.

Dr. Politics on Biden’s big chance
A
sk Dr. Politics! You are
fair, and we are unbalanced!
Dear Dr. Politics: Is
President Barack Obama going
to be impeached?
Answer: Only if the Republicans go totally nuts — which
means it’s possible.
Rep. Michele Bachmann, RMinn., has said:
“We see thuggery
going on in the
White House.
We’re not going to
take it.”
Rep. Steve King,
R-Iowa, has said:
“From my standroger
point, if the president (enacts more
simon
executive actions
on immigration),
we need to bring
impeachment hearings immediately before the House of Representatives.”
GOP intellectual Sarah Palin,
who would have been a heartbeat away from the presidency
if Americans could have stopped
laughing at the prospect, has
said that “the many impeachable
offenses of Barack Obama can
no longer be ignored” and that if
“he’s not impeachable, then no
one is.”
And Obama’s senior aide Dan
Pfeiffer told reporters recently
he would not discount the possibility of impeachment. He
thinks House Speaker John
Boehner “has opened the door to
Republicans possibly considering impeachment at some point
in the future.”
But who would benefit most
from an Obama impeachment?
It wouldn’t be the Republicans.
It would be Vice President Joe
Biden.
If Obama were to be impeached
by the House and removed by
the Senate, Biden would become
president right at the start of the
2016 presidential race. And he
would be in a very strong position to run for election as an
incumbent.
It is possible Hillary Clinton might even decline to run
against a sitting Democratic
president. Maybe Biden would
offer her the vice presidency.
Maybe Biden, who will turn 72
this year, would agree to run for
only one term so Hillary could
run in 2020.
All of which is highly unlikely
— which is why it might happen.
Dear Dr. Politics: Should
Obama have gone to the Mexican border to visit all those sad
migrant children? Wouldn’t that
have been good optics?
Answer: Optics is a tricky
thing. First, the press has become obsessed with how events
are staged, which is not surprising, seeing as serving in public
office has become an extended
theatrical performance, an
elaborate roadshow. So when
staging goes wrong, it becomes a
story unto itself.
Remember when George W.
Bush, wearing a flight suit,
climbed out of a Lockheed S-3
Viking jet after landing aboard
the USS Abraham Lincoln on
May 1, 2003?
Even if you don’t remember
that, I’ll bet you do remember
one thing: the banner behind
him, which said, “Mission Accomplished.” That was optics,
but it was the worst kind of
optics.
So what would have happened
if President Obama had gone to
one of those grim, overcrowded
detention centers where migrant
children are being kept along
our border with Mexico? The
kids would have crowded around
him, their faces beaming.
Those who spoke English
might have said, “We love you!”
And President Obama might
have said: “I love you back!
Which is why I have asked Congress for billions of dollars to
speed your deportation!”
The kids might have been
a little downcast at that. And
downcast kids usually don’t
make for good TV.
“But don’t worry,” President
Obama might have said. “Once
you return home to your dangerous, poverty-stricken countries,
you will be free to get in line and
apply for refugee status to come
to the United States. Sure hope
you make it. Goodbye and good
luck!”
Then, as the kids burst into
tears, Obama could have gone
down the rope line, posing for
selfies with them.
Good optics? I think he was
better off golfing.
Dear Dr. Politics: Did Rep.
Curt Clawson, R-Fla., really mistake two senior U.S. officials testifying before the House Foreign
Affairs Committee as officials
from India and make a complete
jackass out of himself?
Answer: You be the judge.
Even though members of the
committee had been given biographical information about the
two witnesses and even though
Clawson has said he is an expert on the Indian subcontinent
and loves Bollywood movies, he
found himself faced with two
people named Nisha Biswal and
Arun Kumar.
So naturally, Clawson assumed
they were Indians. After all,
they had Indian names and dark
skin. Clawson forgot that not all
Americans have pale skin and
names like Clawson.
In fact, Biswal is the assistant
secretary of state for South
and Central Asian affairs, and
Kumar is the assistant secretary
of commerce for global markets
and director general of the U.S.
Commercial Service. Both,
needless to say, are American
citizens.
But how could Clawson have
known that? Sure, it was on a
piece of paper in front of him,
but both names sounded as if
they could have been those of
Bollywood movie stars.
“I’m familiar with your country; I love your country,” Clawson told them as his colleagues
sat aghast. “Anything I can do to
make the relationship with India
better, I’m willing and enthusiastic about doing so.”
When afterward Clawson
found out about his mistake, he
did what elected officials do: He
blamed his staff.
“I made a mistake in speaking
before being fully briefed and
I apologize,” he said in a statement. “I’m a quick study, but in
this case I shot an air ball.”
Dr. Politics would like to help
Clawson avoid further air balls.
If he is wandering the halls
of Congress and meets a guy
named Chaka Fattah, Clawson shouldn’t welcome him to
America. Fattah was born in
Philadelphia.

NEW YORK (AP) —
Jacquie Whitt’s trip to
the Galapagos with a
group of teenagers was
memorable not just for
the scenery and wildlife,
but also for the way the
kids preserved their
memories. It was, said
Whitt, a “selfie fest.”
For this generation,
“digital devices are now
part of the interpretive
experience,” said Whitt,
co-founder of Adios
Adventure Travel.
Indeed, many parents
love seeing their kids
taking selfies and posting to social media when
they travel. It shows
“they are engaged and
excited about where
they are and what they
are doing,” said Susan
Austin, a photographer
and Iowa mom. “To
some, it might be bragging, but I think it’s
more about a way
today’s teens connect
with and feel part of a
group.”
But some adults think
there’s a downside to
vacation selfies. They
see them as narcissistic
distractions that can
detract from the travel
experience. And they
point to controversial
examples — like a smiling
selfie
from
Auschwitz posted to
Twitter — as proof of
the potential for poor
judgment when young
travelers use social
media.
In addition, when traveling teens spend time
taking selfies, “they’re
so busy documenting, I
wonder whether they’re
actually experiencing
it,” said Peg Streep, who
writes about psychology
and millennials. “What
should be an experience
of learning and growth
instead just says, ‘Look
at me.’ It’s a narcissistic
moment that’s really
about getting likes.”
Streep pointed to a
study by Linda Henkel
of Fairfield University
in Connecticut that
found museum visitors
remember more about
what they’ve seen if
they don’t take photos of
the objects they’re viewing. That suggests that
any type of picture-taking can take “you out of
the moment of the experience and shifts your
attention.”
Another concern is
practical. A real-time
selfie from a far-off place
tells the world you’re
not home. Leora Halpern
Lanz, of Long Island,
New York, loves it when
her three kids take vacation selfies because it’s
their way “of validating
where they were.” But
they’re not allowed to
post images until the
trip is over: “I don’t need
their friends or friends
of friends knowing the
house is empty.”
Lanz says the widely
criticized Auschwitz
selfie also shows “the
risks of kids posting on
social media” when they
don’t know what’s
appropriate.
Breanna Mitchell, the
young woman who took
the smiling Auschwitz
selfie, received death
threats and messages
urging her to kill herself after the image went
viral. In a video interview with TakePart
Live, Mitchell said the
selfie was misinterpreted. She’d studied World
War II history with her
father
and
they’d
planned to visit historic
sites together, but he
died before they could
make the trip.
Her selfie from the
grounds of the concentration camp was her
way of saying, “I finally
made it here. I finally
got where me and my
daddy had always said
we were going to go,”
she told TakePart Live.
Looking back now on
the selfie, she says, “I
just went so wrong with
that.”
Still, most travel selfies are innocent and
purely celebratory — as
well as being a way for
teens to keep in touch
with peers. Taylor
Garcia, 17, who traveled
to Texas this summer
on a family road trip
from Oklahoma, says
selfies are a fun way to
remember places like
Disney, SeaWorld and
the Caribbean, but she
also takes them “because
I want to show my
friends
what
I’m
doing.”
Her mom, Melissa
Garcia, who posts her
own family trip photos
on
her
blog,
ConsumerQueen.com,
encourages the selfies.
“It’s a great way to preserve memories,” she
said, adding that other
families have contacted
her after seeing the photos to get advice for their
trips.
Austin’s
daughter
Abigail, 18, who shared
selfies from a trip to
Portugal, doesn’t see the
point of posting travel
pictures without familiar faces in them. She
wants a photo that
shows, “Hey, I’m having fun! And I like seeing them of other people,
too.”
But at least one tour
company, Tauck, has a
written policy discouraging digital devices.
For Tauck’s Bridges
program, which specializes in multi-generational family trips, guests
are asked to “turn off
and stow their smart
phones, tablets and
other portable electronic devices during shared
group time.”
Tauck
spokesman
Tom Armstrong says
the company understands that digital devices can help teens pass
the time during long car
rides, flights or other
downtime, “and we have
no issue with that.” But
“when the tour director
is giving commentary,
or during museum visits, we think that our
younger guests will
actually get much more
out of their trip if they’re
engaged in the experience and not distracted.”
The bottom line, says
Whitt: “Like all new
emerging technology,
the devices can be fun
and wholesome, entertainment for all ages, or
misused.”

Steers adjust volleyball, football schedules
TOMMY WELLS
Sports Editor
Big Spring High School
football and volleyball players and fans will see a few
changes in their teams’
schedules in the coming
weeks. That is because
BSHS officials were forced
to make several changes in
recent days.
One of the bigger changes
to the upcoming fall sports
schedule will include the
Big Spring freshman, junior varsity and varsity
football teams. According
to BSHS Athletic Secretary
Kay Cook, the site of Steers’
upcoming scrimmage with
Lubbock Estacado has been
changed. The teams, who
are scheduled to face off
in preseason workouts on
Aug. 22, will now hold their
scrimmage in Lubbock.
The freshman team will
lead off the scrimmage outing beginning at 5 p.m. The
junior varsity team will follow, with the varsity squads
taking to the field at approximately 7 p.m.
The Steers will open the
2014 season on Aug. 30 at
Bobcat Stadium in San Angelo against Kerrville.
The BSHS volleyball team
will also be adjusting to a
new schedule - although not
a major one.
The Lady Steers were
forced to trim one day off
their schedule when Abilene
Independent School District
officials announced the annual Key City Invitational
had been shortened from
a 2-day tournament to one
day.
The tournament, which
had originally be scheduled
for Aug. 22-23, will be held
on Aug. 23.
The BSHS volleyball team
will begin its 2014 season
on Aug. 12 when they travel
to Abilene to face off with
Abilene Cooper and Abilene
High. They will also play in
Abilene on Aug. 15-16 in the
annual Bev Ball Invitational
Tournament.
Cowboys ink
Tyron Smith to
8-year extension
OXNARD, Calif. (AP) — Tyron Smith has a new contract
that will probably make him
the most important blocker
for the next Dallas quarterback after Tony Romo.
The Pro Bowl left tackle
signed an eight-year, $98 million extension Wednesday
that pushes the total value of
his deal to $110 million over
10 years, locking him up
through 2023.
The extension includes a
$10 million signing bonus
and $40 million in guaranteed
money. Smith joins Romo as
the only Cowboys with contracts valued at more than
$100 million.
Smith was just 20 when
the Cowboys took him ninth
overall in 2011 out of Southern California. That was Jason Garrett’s first draft as
coach.
“That first one says a lot
about what you believe,”
Garrett said. “He’s something else. We really emphasize the importance of mental toughness. We believe
that’s a distinguishing trait
in players and in teams. And
he represents that in spades.
He’s off the charts.”
In a statement through
his
marketing
agency,
Smith said the Cowboys approached him with what is a
cap-friendly deal for the franchise, and the lineman asked
his agents to weigh the pros
and cons of signing it.
Smith said part of his reasoning was rewarding owner
Jerry Jones for standing by
him during a difficult time
that included Smith’s lawyer
accusing the player’s parents of taking money from
him after he had set up a way
to give them a portion of his
rookie contract.
“They’ve looked out for me
and I just wanted to look out
for them,” Smith told reporters after Wednesday’s late
practice. “The deal they of-
Jones: Brent
out of rehab,
NFL next?
OXNARD, Calif. (AP)
— Dallas Cowboys owner
Jerry Jones says former
defensive tackle Josh
Brent is out of rehabilitation and could have
his future with the NFL
resolved before the team
leaves training camp in
California in two weeks.
Jones said Wednesday
from training camp that
Brent was released from
rehab this week.
The 26-year-old Brent
was convicted in January of intoxication manslaughter for the December 2012 crash that killed
Jerry Brown, a Cowboys
practice squad player.
He was sentenced to 180
days in jail and 10 years’
probation. He left jail last
month and entered a rehab facility in Dallas.
A spokeswoman for the
Dallas County District
Attorney’s Office didn’t
return a message.
The release from rehab
came about the same time
the Cowboys lost rookie
defensive end DeMarcus
Lawrence for at least two
months with a broken
right foot.
Dallas is revamping its
defensive line after releasing franchise sacks
leader DeMarcus Ware in
March.
fered me, didn’t really need
much and it’s something I
was really comfortable before I took it.”
Executive vice president
Stephen Jones said the Cowboys wanted to make Smith
the highest-paid left tackle
in the NFL.
Tribe makes trade with Cards
CLEVELAND (AP) — The
Indians had little choice but
to give up Justin Masterson. The trade doesn’t mean
they’re going to surrender
the season.
“We will never raise the
white flag,” Cleveland manager Terry Francona said.
“That’s not an option. Anybody who stands next to me
in the dugout knows that will
never happen.”
Protecting themselves in
case the 29-year-old Masterson left as a free agent af-
ter the season, the Indians
traded the right-hander on
Wednesday to the St. Louis
Cardinals.
The trade of Masterson
could be followed by other
moves by the Indians, who
entered Wednesday 6 1-2
games behind first-place Detroit in the AL Central and
in a scramble with five other
teams for the league’s second
wild-card spot.
The Indians could also trade
shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera
before the deadline.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP)
— Right fielder Alex Rios has
left the Texas Rangers game
Wednesday after getting hit
by a pitch on the left quad.
The Rangers called the
move precautionary after
Rios left Wednesday night’s
game against the New York
Yankees.
Rios, considered a potential trade possibility before
Thursday’s non-waiver trading deadline, stayed in the
game to run after getting hit
by a pitch thrown by Hiroki
Kuroda in the third inning.
But Daniel Robertson replaced Rios in right field in
the next inning.
Rios injured in Rangers’ win
Getting close ...
The Big Spring High School Lady Steers will get their preseason practices under
way on Monday. Practices times and sites will appear in this weekend’s edition
of the Big Spring Herald.
Rangers get rare series win
with 3-2 romp over Yankees
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) —
Texas Rangers starter Colby
Lewis did a bit of reminiscing
when he noticed the stands filling up while he warned up in
the bullpen before the game.
The veteran right-hander
went out and provided a promising flashback performance
against the New York Yankees, even after another leadoff homer by Brett Gardner.
The Rangers clinched their
first series in a month with a
3-2 victory Wednesday night.
Lewis retired the last 13 batters he faced in seven strong
innings, much like the 2010 AL
championship series when he
beat the Yankees twice — including the Game 6 clincher at
home that got Texas to its first
World Series. He had since
missed the last half of 2012
because of elbow surgery and
missed all of 2013, when he had
an unprecedented hip procedure for a major league pitcher
that was just short of a full hip
replacement.
“I was definitely an adjustment period getting used to a
prosthetic hip, I guess,” Lewis
said. “As the weeks have kind
of transitioned into the second
half, I feel like every time I
take the mound, I feel like I’m
getting stronger.”
The Rangers had lost seven
consecutive series since taking two of three against Minnesota from June 27-29.
Texas went ahead to stay
with three runs in the first off
Hiroki Kuroda (7-7). Elvis Andrus had an RBI double and
scored the tiebreaking run on
a single by Adrian Beltre, who
came home on Leonys Martin’s single.
Lewis (7-8) allowed four hits,
with four strikeouts and New
York didn’t have another runner after Carlos Beltran’s twoout single in the third.
“He made some adjustments
along the way, and he just
showed his presence and his
veteran presence out there,”
manager Ron Washington
said.
Neftali Feliz pitched a perfect ninth for his third save in
as many chances since reassuming the closer role.

#8397 July 30, 2014
Dear Annie: I have two
daughters who have their
biological father's last
name. He never phones
or visits. In six years, he
has seen them once for
an hour.
I would like to change
their last name to my
maiden name. I have full
physical and legal
custody of my girls. My
ex has supervised
visitation that he hasn't
taken advantage of. I
married a wonderful man
seven years ago, and he
is truly their father.
I have no idea where
their biological father
lives. I've asked his
sister, and she, too, has
no clue. He has been in
and out of jail on drug
charges, and seeing as he
isn't paying child support
or showing any interest
in the girls, I don't feel
they should have to use
his last name.
How do I go about
changing their names
with the least amount of
trouble? I can't afford a
lawyer. My girls are 8
and 9 years old, and I'd
like to get this done. -L.A., Calif.
Dear L.A.: Contact
your state or county
courthouse and find out
what forms are necessary
to request a name change
for minor children, and
follow whatever
additional instructions
are required. (Should
your ex reappear and
contest this at a later
date, you may need to
contact a lawyer.)
Before taking this step,
however, consider how
your girls will feel down
the road. They may be
BIG SPRING HERALD
Thursday, July 31, 2014
perfectly content to be
totally disconnected from
their biological father,
but we caution you not to
make your animosity
toward him part of the
package. When they are
older, please allow them
to have their background
information should they
request it.
Dear Annie: When it
comes to relationships,
whether family or
friends, I've always had
to be the one to pursue
communication with
them. They rarely call to
say hello or ask how
things are going.
I recently moved from
Tennessee to Indiana and
feel like I'm by myself. I
have few friends here.
What would you suggest I
do? -- Lonely Hoosier
Dear Hoosier: It takes
time to make friends in a
new location. We
recommend you get
involved in local
activities through your
church, community
centers, gyms, volunteer
organizations, etc., as
well as groups that hold
interest for you, such as
choirs, theater troupes,
political organizations,
book clubs and so on,
which you can find
online or through
meetup.com.
Some people, like you,
are better at maintaining
communication than
others. But you also could
ask some close friends or
family members why
they so rarely call.
Sometimes there are
problems that can be
easily remedied.
Dear Annie: Can I add
one more story to the
replies to "Frustrated
with Noise," about
children crying in
church?
Many years ago, my
family and I attended a
large church in Groton,
Conn. It was always
packed to capacity.
Sitting in front of us was
another family with small
children. As soon as the
service started, the child
who was sitting on his
parent's lap started
screaming demonically. I
had never heard any
human being scream that
loudly. Neither parent
made any attempt to
quiet the child. They sat
there like petrified stone.
The child continued
screaming as the
preacher attempted to
give his sermon. Even
though he was using a
microphone, he could not
override the child's
screaming. Suddenly, the
preacher said in a
booming voice: "In the
name of Jesus Christ, I
command you to be
quiet!" The child stopped
screaming
instantaneously, and we
didn't hear a peep out of
him for the rest of the
service. -- C.
to get to the business at
hand.
"Desperate hope" and
"fear" are both intense
and powerful, and with
consistency, they will
bring into being whatever
they are focused on. Let's
strike both outcomes
from your mind, just as
an exercise, because they
both have a negative,
grasping lack-mentality
attached to them.
What would it take to
move yourself into a
better emotional space?
Try to move through the
spectrum of emotions
step by step, as it won't
help to command yourself
toward optimism. Instead,
move up from fear and
desperation into
neutrality. What can you
feel peaceful and neutral
about? Once neutral
feelings are achieved,
strive for more. What
would make you
comfortable? What would
make you giggle? What
would be cool? Then go
for higher feelings. What
would be awesome?
Learning to lead yourself
through different
emotional states is a lifechanging skill and one
worth devoting your
attention to.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
Mercury Enters
Leo
Mercury, road manager
and minister of
communication, leaves
the domestic
realm of
Cancer for
the splashier
realm of
Leo.
External
validation
feels
wonderful,
H OLIDAY
but it's a
M ATHIS
slippery
slope. If
you're
always going for the
applause, you'll lose your
moral center and become
a slave to public opinion.
So take your bow, but
keep things in
perspective, too.
ARIES (March 21-April
19). It will be as though
the world is providing a
pause to help you
gracefully transition to a
new idea. Accept the lull - it's a gift. Don't be too
quick to move the action
along.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20). New problems keep
you sharp. Of course, you
prefer to think of them as
"situations" that are all
well within your
capability even though
that's yet to be proved.
Because your attitude is
so positive, you'll prevail.
GEMINI (May 21-June
21). Sometimes you get
lucky and stumble upon a
free ride, but generally
speaking, you have to
buy the ticket first. The
opportunity to invest in
your "ticket" will come
along this afternoon, and
that window will close
tonight.
CANCER (June 22-July
22). There's power in
stillness because stillness
is potential. Also, people
project their inner
desires onto a still
surface. Your inner
stillness enables you to
reflect the hopes and
wishes of others back to
them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
Temptations abound, but
you know a trap when
you see one. Maybe you'll
get away with the prize,
but is it worth the risk?
As a fellow Leo
suggested, "Better shun
the bait than struggle in
the snare." -- John Dryden
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22). Relationships spark
to the subtlest changes.
Add or subtract one
element, and everything
will be different. For
instance, your experience
may be transformed by
adding music.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23). It takes maturity to
separate yourself from
your problem, and you
have a mature view, as
you attempt to walk
around it, rise above it
and observe it from as
many angles as possible.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
21). As a rule, you prefer
not to be the most
interesting person in the
room. You'd rather be
where there are so many
interesting people that
you don't even know
whom to talk to first.
That's the kind of room
you'll encounter today.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21). You'll be
hyper-aware of the "time
is money" theme of the
day. Small talk may build
rapport, but you have
little patience for it now,
as there's some pressure
Sudoku Answer On Page 12
By Steve Becker
sudoku
Fill in the grid so that every row, every column and every
3x3 box contains the digits 1 through 9 with no repeats.
That means no number is repeated in any row, column or
box.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). When you're
putting yourself out
there, criticism comes
with the territory. You
welcome it. In fact, you
may even ask for it. You
want your work to be the
best, and that means
processing some
feedback.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). You woke up
with a certain person on
your mind, and this
person is outside of your
circle of daily
interactions. Take it as
the sign it is, and reach
out to that person. You
two are due for some
communication.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20). Sometimes the feeling
that you know something
is preferable to the actual
knowledge.
Understandable. You
have bravely, repeatedly
stepped into the
unknown, and now you're
ready for comfort and
reprieve.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY
(July 31). Pursue
impossibilities this year
because you have no idea
what is really possible.
The one who enters your
life in August does so
with unforgettable style.
You both will be
transformed by the
connection. In September,
risk will be good fortune's
accomplice, so do not
back off. Your curiosity
ignites a new passion in
October. Cancer and
Taurus people adore you.
Your lucky numbers are:
30, 2, 14, 3 and 11.
ASTROLOGICAL
QUESTIONS: "I
desperately hope for one
outcome and fear
another. Which do you
think will happen?"
On an energetic level,
"desperate hope" and
"fear" are very close in
vibration. The outcome
you desperately hope for
is laced in fear, as well.
Why are you desperate?
Desperation pushes what
is desired away.
CELEBRITY
PROFILES: Happy
birthday to "Harry Potter"
creator J.K. Rowling,
a.k.a. Robert Galbraith,
a.k.a. Joanne Rowling.
One of the perks of being
a writer is the liberty to
adopt a new pen name
and carry on anew!
Rowling was born when
the sun was in Leo, the
sign of entertainment, but
her moon, Mercury,
Venus and Pluto were all
in Virgo, suggesting an
extremely shy individual
who would rather
entertain from afar.

Stern sees Sterling saga ending well, lauds Silver
ig
NEW YORK (AP) — Former
Commissioner David Stern
praised the NBA’s handling
of the Donald Sterling controversy and predicts it will “end
well” for the league.
Stern said his successor,
Adam Silver, has been “forceful” but also “demonstrated
a compassionate side” in his
reaction to the racist remarks
that were made by the Los Angeles Clippers owner.
“He’s done great. He has been
forceful, he has been reflective,
he has been buttoned-down
and I think he has also demonstrated a compassionate side as
well,” Stern told The Associated Press on Wednesday during
a phone interview.
Silver fined Sterling $2.5 million and banned him for life
after the recorded comments
became public. Sterling’s wife,
Shelly, later agreed to sell the
team to former Microsoft CEO
Steve Ballmer for a record $2
billion, a transaction the league
believes will close shortly even
as Donald Sterling continues
trying to fight in court.
Stern retired after 30 years
as commissioner in February.
He will be enshrined into the
Naismith Memorial Basketball
Hall of Fame next week.
During his tenure, Shelly
and Donald Sterling faced al-
legations that they discriminated against tenants based on
race in Los Angeles according
to a lawsuit filed by U.S. Department of Justice in 2006.
The Sterlings, who at the time
owned and managed about 119
apartment buildings or 5,000
apartments throughout Los
Angeles County, agreed to settle the suit for $2.725 million.
Stern has remained an adviser to the league and remained
pring
erald
in frequent contact with Silver, who worked under him
since 1992.
Silver was the commissioner for less than three months
when TMZ released audio of
Sterling’s remarks.
Silver handed out his punishment days later and has navigated the league as it tries to
oust Sterling, who owned the
Clippers franchise even before
Stern became commissioner.
