Woman gets 40 years for husband’s murder

By CHAD ABSHIRE

Staff Writer

WILLIAMSON - A woman accused of

killing her husband in April of last year was

sentenced to 40 years in prison yesterday.

Crystal Gale Clark, 33, of Varney, was

originally indicted in September by the

Mingo Grand Jury for the murder of her husband,

David Clark, at their home in Varney.

She pleaded guilty to second-degree murder

in January.

The sentencing is the maximum penalty

she could have gotten, as she faced between

no less than 10 years and no more than 40.

“Based upon a comprehensive analysis of

the evidence, I am confident that justice was

served in this case,” Mingo County Prosecuting

Attorney, C. Michael Sparks, said in a

press release last month following her guilty

plea.

“I trust that the victim’s family can now

have closure as they continue the grieving

process. May God bless them with His won-

WILLIAMSON - The Mingo County

Sheriff’s Department was kept busy

over the weekend responding to a variety

of calls, including one that resulted

in a Wharncliffe resident being

pronounced dead from causes that are

yet to be determined.

Chief Field Deputy James Smith released

information stating that Deputy

M. Miller was dispatched to a home in

Wharncliffe, after the male occupant

called Mingo 911 and reported that

he had found his girlfriend, Audrey

Stumbo, 44, unconscious and unresponsive.

Miller and responding emergency

services workers attempted to per-

form CPR, but were unable to revive

the female. Mingo County Medical

Examiner Mike Casey was called to

the scene and pronounced her dead.

Her body was taken to the Chief

Medical Examiner’s office in Charleston

for autopsy. The investigation is

still ongoing, but Smith stated that

foul play is not suspected.

Deputies were called to the Hope

House in Delbarton on Friday night,

Feb. 3, regarding a female resident

being threatened by a male subject

who reportedly was the father of her

child. The manager of the facility said

he was attempting to remove the juvenile

from the location.

West Virginia Coal Association

argues in a new court filing.

The association’s friendof-the-court

brief asks U.S.

to the U.S. Department of

Interior. It argues the Sierra

Club and other several other

groups have no legal standing

to

sue Interior,

S e r v i c e

or the

K e e p e r

of the

Walton has scheduled a

status conference for March

In 1921, some 10,000 coal

miners who had been trying to

unionize for years marched to

Blair and faced down a dugin

army of police and hired

guns who had homemade

bombs and machine guns. At

least 16 men died before the

miners surrendered to federal

troops in what became the nation’s

largest armed uprising

since the Civil War.

The 1,600-acre battlefield

was briefly added to the

Register then removed when

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP)

— Alpha Natural Resources says

its decision to scale back production

and idle some coal mines

will cost 152 West Virginians

and 168 Kentuckians their jobs

in the coming weeks.

Spokesman Ted Pile said

Monday that another 182 West

Virginia employees and an ad-

private property owners objected.

The Coal Association says

the groups have no standing

to sue because they don’t own

any battlefield property and

have suffered no harm from

the site’s delisting. They also

argue that the property cannot

legally be added to the

Register over the objections

of a majority of landowners.

The case is part of a multipronged

effort by labor, environmental

and historic preservation

groups to protect the

site from mining.

Last summer, they failed

to convince the state Department

of Environmental Pro-

ditional 52 Kentucky employees

are being offered work at other

Alpha locations.

Media outlets say the West

Virginia mines being idled include

the No. 2 Gas Mine in

Kanawha County and the Randolph

Mine in Boone County,

both underground operations.

Hours are being cut at Boone’s

tection to declare the site unsuitable

for mining. The DEP

ruled that about 30 percent of

the land is exempt from that

declaration because it’s already

covered under mining

permits, while other areas are

exempt because there is clear

evidence of past mining activity.

The groups responded to

that by suing in Kanawha

County Circuit Court and

delivering the State Historic

Preservation Office a

petition bearing more than

26,000 signatures.

The state has not moved

to restore the mountain’s

designation.

Too many kids breathe others’

smoke in cars: says federal CDC

LINDSEY TANNER

AP MedicAl Writer

CHICAGO (AP) —

Texting while driving,

speeding and back-seat

hanky-panky aren’t all

that parents need to worry

about when their kids

are in cars: Add secondhand

smoke to the list.

In the first national

estimate of its kind, a report

from government researchers

says more than

1 in 5 high school students

and middle schoolers

ride in cars while others

are smoking.

This kind of secondhand

smoke exposure

has been linked with

breathing problems and

allergy symptoms, and

more restrictions are

needed to prevent it, the

report says.

With widespread

crackdowns on smoking

Marine sergeant goes to trial

AUDREY McAVOY

AssociAted Press

HONOLULU (AP) — A second

Marine is going to trial for allegedly

hazing a fellow Marine who later fatally

shot himself in Afghanistan.

Sgt. Benjamin Johns has been

charged with a wrongfully humiliating

and demeaning Lance Cpl. Harry

Lew, who killed himself on April 3.

Johns, a squad leader, also has been

charged with dereliction for failing to

supervise and ensure the welfare of

Marines under his care.

The general court-martial is set for

Monday at a Marine base in Kaneohe

Bay, the home of the 2nd Battalion,

3rd Marine Division, which the accused

are assigned to. Proceedings

will start with the selection of a jury.

Johns’ attorney said his client was

only trying to save the lives of his

squad as he tried to get Lew — who

had repeatedly fallen asleep on watch

and patrol — to stop dozing off. The

base had been fired on before, and

Johns was concerned Lew wouldn’t

spot Taliban fighters trying to attack

their outpost again, Tim Bilecki said.

“These aren’t acts of hazing.

They’re simply not,” Bilecki said.

KRISTEN WYATT

AssociAted Press

DENVER (AP) —

Long skeptical of Mitt

Romney, tea party activists

are either warming

up to the GOP presidential

front-runner or

reluctantly backing him

after abandoning hope

of finding a nominee

they like better.

Whatever the reason,

the former Massachusetts

governor who is

coming off of back-toback

victories in Florida

and Nevada now is

picking up larger shares

of the tea party vote

than he did when the

Republican nomination

fight began. And that

fact alone illuminates

the struggles of the

nearly three-year-old

movement to greatly

influence its first presidential

race.

“We haven’t gone

away,” insisted Amy

Kremer, chairwoman of

the national Tea Party

Express. But, in the

same breath, she acknowledged

lower expectations

and a shift

in focus to Senate races

over the White House

campaign. She also

pleaded for patience,

saying: “Anybody that

thinks we are going to

change things in one

cycle or two cycles is

fooling themselves.”

Tea party activists

in public, private places

including homes and

cars are where people

encounter secondhand

smoke these days. Antismoking

advocates have

zeroed in on cars because

of research showing

they’re potentially more

dangerous than

s m o k e - f i l l e d

bars and other

less confined

areas.

The research,

from the federal

Centers for Disease

Control

and Prevention,

was released

online Monday in Pediatrics.

The study is based on

national surveys done

at public and private

high schools and middle

schools. Students were

asked how often they

rode in cars while some-

one was smoking within

the past week. The most

common answer was one

or two days. The smoker

could mean other kids or

parents; the study didn’t

specify.

A CDC fact sheet

suggests even small

“There is no risk-free

level of exposure to

secondhand smoke.”

— The federal Centers

for Disease Control and

Prevention

amounts of

secondhand

smoke can

be risky.

“There is

no risk-free

level of exposure

to

secondhand

smoke,” the

CDC says.

Overall, 22 percent of

teens and pre-teens were

exposed to secondhand

smoke in cars in 2009,

the latest data available.

That figure declined

gradually during the decade,

from 40 percent in

2000, the study found.

“These are actions of a Marine trying

to take care of his other Marines.”

Another Marine in the squad,

Lance Cpl. Jacob Jacoby, last week

pleaded guilty to assault. He was sentenced

to 30 days in jail and demoted

to private first class. A third Marine

will go to trial later.

Lew, of Santa Clara, Calif., was a

nephew of U.S. Rep. Judy Chu, D-

Calif., who has called for congressional

hearings on the military’s efforts

to prevent hazing.

“This is a call for justice,” Chu

said at a press conference in Washington

on Thursday. “Too many patriotic

young people, who only want to serve

our country, are being harmed.”

She also condemned Jacoby’s sentence

as “a slap in the face,” noting

he’ll continue to serve in the Marine

Corps because he wasn’t discharged.

In April, the squad was assigned

to a small patrol base in a remote part

of Helmand province where the U.S.

trying to disrupt Taliban drug and

weapons trafficking.

By April 2, Lew had fallen asleep

four times while either on patrol or

watch duty in his 10 days at the base.

His leaders referred him up the

chain of command for punishment

across the country entered

their first presidential

contest this year

expecting to hold major

sway over the Republican

race following

a 2010 congressional

election year in which

their favored candidates

successfully knocked

off a string of insiders

in GOP primaries

in Colorado and elsewhere.

The movement influenced

the presidential

race early on, with candidates

from Romney

on down parroting the

movement’s language

and promoting its agenda

of restrained spending

to curry favor with

its adherents.

But the coalition was

greatly fractured and

plagued by infighting.

It also watched as one

favored candidate after

another lost standing

or quit the race, among

them Georgia businessman

Herman Cain and

Minnesota Rep. Michele

Bachmann. The

remaining candidates

— Newt Gingrich, Rick

Santorum and Ron Paul

— have attributes that

tea party backers like

but they face huge hurdles

in knocking Romney

off his stride.

That’s left many

in the tea party shifting

focus to Romney,

a candidate viewed by

many as most likely

to unseat President

Barack Obama, even if

he doesn’t vociferously

bang the drum of their

top issues.

“We’re warming up

to Romney,” said Brian

Walker, a tea party

member and 62-yearold

sheet metal contractor

in the Colorado

mountain town of Florissant.

He raves about

Santorum but said he’s

leaning toward Romney

because he wants

to support the candidate

he views as the likely

nominee.

Such perceptions

may be one of the reasons

Romney has seen a

bump in support among

tea party followers even

though the movement

has long been irked by

Romney’s tentative embrace

of it and evolution

on several issues it

holds dear.

In South Carolina

last month, exit polls

showed that only about

1 in 4 self-described tea

party supporters backed

Romney in the primary,

which Gingrich

ended up winning. But

10 days later, 41 percent

of tea partyers in

Florida’s primary chose

Romney as he cruised

to victory there. And in

Nevada, entrance polls

showed that Romney

won 47 percent of the

tea party vote on Saturday,

crushing his rivals

But still, the numbers of

kids still facing the risks

“is certainly problematic,”

said CDC researcher

Brian King, the study’s

lead author.

“The car is the only

source of exposure for

some of these children,

so if you can reduce

that exposure, it’s definitely

advantageous for

health,” King said.

The CDC advises parents

to not allow smoking

in their homes and

cars, and says opening a

car window will not protect

kids from cigarette

smoke inside.

Measures banning

smoking in cars when

children are present

have been enacted in

a handful of states and

proposed in several others.

The study authors

say similar bans should

be adopted elsewhere.

and took him off patrols so he could

get more rest so he wouldn’t fall

asleep.

A command investigation report

on the incident said Johns, after discovering

that Lew had dozed again,

told other fellow lance corporals that

“peers should correct peers.”

At about 11 p.m., he woke up another

Marine who was due to relieve

Lew two hours later and had him take

over the job early. Johns also ordered

Lew to dig a foxhole deep enough

for him to stand in, so he would stay

awake while on watch.

The violence escalated after Johns

went to sleep.

Jacoby admitted in his court martial

that he punched and kicked Lew,

saying he was frustrated that the fellow

Marine repeatedly fell asleep

while on watch. He was also upset

that Lew spoke to him disrespectfully.

The third Marine, Lance Cpl.

Carlos Orozco III allegedly put his

foot on Lew’s back, ordered Lew to

do push-ups, side planks and poured

sand into Lew’s face. Orozco has

been charged with assault, humiliating

Lew, and cruelty and maltreatment.

His court martial is pending.

in the state.

Romney could perform

just as well in

Colorado and Minnesota

caucuses on Tuesday.

He won both four years

ago. Since then, both

states have been heavily

influenced by the tea

party.

In 2010, tea party

supporters in both

states claimed credit

for usurping well-funded

GOP insiders and

producing conservative

gubernatorial nominees,

Dan Maes in Colorado

and Tom Emmer

in Minnesota. Both lost

the general election,

despite big Republican

successes elsewhere.

Colorado Republicans

also nominated a

conservative tea party

favorite, Ken Buck,

over a better-funded

candidate, former Lt.

Gov. Jane Norton. But

Buck also lost the general

election to the appointed

Democratic

senator, Michael Bennet,

who had never before

run for political

office.

Mindful of the tea

party strains in both

states, Romney’s rivals

are playing to the

movement in hopes

of engineering comebacks.

Tucson shooting suspect

to remain at Mo. facility

JULIE WATSON

AssociAted Press

SAN DIEGO (AP) —

A federal judge ruled

Monday that the suspect

in the Tucson shooting

rampage that wounded

former Congresswoman

Gabrielle Giffords will

spend four more months

at a federal prison facility

where officials

are forcibly medicating

him.

In making his decision,

U.S. District Court

Judge Larry Burns noted

that Jared Lee Loughner

has made marked improvement

at the facility

in Springfield, Mo.,

where he has participated

in group therapy

with other inmates and

at times had coherent

speech and steady eye

contact with others.

“That in and of itself

is a signal of measurable

progress,” Burns

said, adding that when

he first saw the suspect

in court, “there was no

way” he could have

done that.

PORTLAND, Maine

(AP) — A tent city that’s

among the longest-lived

Occupy protest encampments

is coming down as

part of a new wave of eviction

orders against demonstrators

aligned with the

movement in communities

including Miami, Washington

and Pittsburgh.

Occupy Maine demonstrators

removed several

large tents over the weekend,

He has pleaded not

stemming from the Jan.

8, 2011, attack in Tucson

that killed six people

and injured 12 others,

including Giffords,

who resigned from Congress

last month to focus

on recovering from

being shot in the head.

Loughner’s attorneys

have vigorously fought

the government’s efforts

to medicate him with

psychotropic drugs, although

they did not object

to the judge’s decision

Monday. Attorney

Judy Clarke declined to

comment after the hearing.

Since his arrest,

Loughner has demonstrated

bizarre behavior.

He was removed from

a May 25 court hearing

after lowering his head

to within inches of the

courtroom table before

lifting it and unleashing

a loud and angry

rant.

Loughner has been

at the Missouri facility

since May 28.

“Just because the occupation

away,” Heather Curtis, one

of the campers, said Monday

before she started hauling

away her belongings

from snow-covered Lincoln

Park.

The encampments that

were the heart of the movement

are becoming scarcer.

On Monday, a judge issued

what appeared to be the final

notice for Occupy Pittsburgh

“At the end of the

■ An Upward Look

By Mae Stallard

But if a man be just

“But if a man

be just, and do

what is lawful and

right…”(Ezekiel

18:5)

The Lord asked

the prophet Ezekiel

what the

people meant

by quoting this







DREW MARTIN, Advertising Mgr.


CHAD

WHITT, Circulation Mgr.



















MAE

STALLARD

proverb about the land

of Israel: “The fathers

eat sour grapes, and the

children’s teeth are set

on edge?” This proverb

had been quoted in Jeremiah

31:29-30 and God

said they were no longer

to quote this proverb in

Israel. For every living

soul belongs to God,

the father and the son—

both alike belong to

him. The soul who sins

is the one who will die.

The Lord then used

an illustration to make

His point clear. If a man

is just and does what

is lawful and right. He

does not eat at the mountain

shrines or lift his

eyes to the idols of the

house of Israel. He does

not defile his neighbor’s

wife or come near a

menstruous woman, He

does not oppress anyone,

but returns what

he took in pledge for a

loan. He does not commit

robbery but give his

food to the hungry, and

provides clothing for

the naked. He does not

lend at usury or takes

excessive interest. He

withholds his hand from

doing wrong and judges

fairly between man and

man. He follows God’s

decrees and faithfully

keeps His laws. That

man is righteous; he

will surely live, the

Lord declares.

Suppose he has a

violent son, who sheds

blood or does any

of these other things



(though the father

has done none of

them). “He eats

at the mountain

shrines,” he defiles

his neighbor’s

wife. He oppresses

the poor and needy.

He commits robbery.

He does not

return what he took in

pledge. He looks to the

idols. He does detestable

things. He lends at

usury and takes excessive

interest. Will such

a man live? He will not!

Because he has done all

of these terrible things,

he will surely be put

to death and his blood

will be on his own head.

(18:1-13)

The Lord makes

known that the soul

that sins shall die. No

one will bear the iniquity

of another person.

If, however, the wicked

turn away from all his

sins that he has committed,

and keeps all

God’s decrees and does

what is just and right,

he will surely live: he

will not die. None of the

offences he has committed

will be remembered

against him. What

wonderful news for the

Christians.

Poem

If a man be just,

And does what is

lawful and right,

That man is blessed,

In the father’s sight.

So may we strive to

be,

The person God

wants us to be,

That we might live

and serve Him,

Throughout eternity.

Prayer

Dear Father, May we

seek to be obedient to

you all the days of our

lives. In Jesus’ holy

name we pray. Amen .

What has the Lord called you to do?

By NICK ENGLAND

ReveRend, St. Paul’S ePiScoPal chuRch

“…Jesus was walking by the Sea

of Galilee when He saw two brothers,

Simon and Andrew, casting a net

into the sea. Jesus called on them to

stop what they were doing and follow

Him and He would make them fist for

people. (King James says it best,” I

will make you to become fishers of

men”).

Mark reports that they just got up,

left everything behind, and followed

after Him.

Jesus went a little further and

spotted two more men - the brothers,

James and John - who were also

fishermen. They were mending their

nets. Jesus called them, and they too,

got up, left their father, Zebedee, in

FISHTRAP HOLLOW, Miss.

— I did some figuring on the back

of an envelope and discovered that

200 days of 2011 were spent away

from this old hollow. Maybe that’s

why today it seems almost like an

exotic getaway instead of what it

actually is: an ordinary home.

Outside the window, recent

rains have left sand contrails zigzagging

the pasture. I see flotsam

from the branch that runs beside

the house and at times jumps its

banks. If it were warmer, I’d open

all the doors and listen to the

branch babble and brag about all

the water it has carried while I’ve

been away.

Instead, I lay a fire in the stove,

the better to get through February.

My dogs Boo and Hank are

curled up in discount-store beds

on the floor beside my desk. They,

too, miss home when we’re gone.

Here they simply nudge me with

their wooly heads when the urge to

go outside hits. If they see or sense

a squirrel, they can give chase.

In the Colorado city where

the boat, and followed Jesus. As far

as we know, there was noting remarkable

about these four men-Simon,

Andrew James and John. They were

ordinary fishermen. But they were

extraordinary in this sense: three of

them - Peter, James and John - become

Jesus’ inner circle. Jesus would

eventually have 12 apostles, but He

would turn to these three again and

again in the key moments of His life.

But these four ordinary men -

along with the other eight Apostles -

turned the world upside down. They

didn’t do it alone. They did by the

grace of God. But they did it! Today

their names are known all over the

world - not because they are great,

but because the Lord whom they

served is great!

I’d like for you to take a moment

we’ve been for several months,

the dogs must wear harnesses and

leashes to go outside. City squirrels

mock and tease them.

Here they enjoy a regular retinue

of dogs who visit and chase

about the woods for recreation. In

the city, dog-park etiquette eludes

my two, too old to learn new

tricks. They lunge and growl at every

strange dog we meet, provoking

my stern rebuke.

It is for a dog, I imagine, humiliating.

When your heart settles on a

place, it’s hard to convince it that

anywhere else can be home. No

matter that elsewhere you make

friends, have a nicer house, frequent

amazing restaurants and

have access to a variety of breads

and other groceries the stalwart

Piggly Wiggly does not offer.

It doesn’t even matter that the

spectacular Rocky Mountains are

outside your window, iced with

snow and positioned against a

Windex-blue sky.

You eventually miss the humbler

North Mississippi hills, worn

to speed-bump size by thousands

to consider this question: What has

the Lord called you to do?

I’d like you to seriously consider

that question - think about it - pray

about it. It doesn’t matter your age -

we all have some time left, whether

a little or a lot. It does matter what

God calls us to do with that time.

How can we live our remaining days

to the glory of God?

I promise this: if we listen for the

Lord’s call and follow where He

leads, the Lord will do something

important with our life - just as he

did with Simon, Andrew, James and

John.

We might not become famous or

well-known or wealthy, but I guarantee

that we’ll feel very rich, indeed.

Amen.

There’s no place like home

of years of nature’s abuse. You

miss the sycamores with their loincloth

leaves and the skinny dogwoods

with their spring surprise.

Most of all you miss the people,

the slow-talking, slothfully rhythmic

folk who speak on the sidewalk

whether they know you or not. You

miss the long and circuitous stories

that pass for answers to questions

that could be answered with a simple

“yes” or “no.”

You miss what you have always

known.

It’s aggravating, almost. Last

month I left the land of no litter

and dramatic vistas and cold that

doesn’t feel cold to come home to

tornado threats and the damp chill

that permeates a Southern spring.

I left a neighborhood with art galleries

and animal control and a

French bakery where the baguettes

are fresh each morning to return to

the thundering peace of this place.

I was homesick for, well, home.

Drug testing W.Va. coal

miners up for review

LAWRENCE MESSINA

AssociAted Press

CHARLESTON, W.Va.

(AP) — Testing coal miners

for drugs presents both

benefits and burdens to

West Virginia regulators,

the House and Senate Judiciary

committees heard

Monday as lawmakers pursue

measures this session

to improve mine safety.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin

has proposed a wide-ranging

mine safety bill that

includes a mandatory, random

screening program for

all mine jobs requiring certification.

The random testing

should annually screen

half of any employer’s certified

workforce, the legislation

says.

The two committees

launched a two-day series

of hearings Monday for

that bill and others. Lawmakers

seek to focus on

proposals that respond to

the 2010 Upper Big Branch

mine explosion. The worst

U.S. coal mining disaster

in four decades, the underground

Raleigh County

blast killed 29 miners. The

second hearing is slated for

2 p.m.Tuesday in the House

of Delegates Chamber.

Eugene White, acting

deputy director of the state

Office of Miners’ Health

Safety and Training, estimated

that drugs played a

role in around 200 of the

5,413 complaints and incidents

his agency investigated

last year.

“Most of the complaints

we get, believe it or not,

a lot of them are from the

wives of the miner,” White

told the committees. “He’s

home for the evening,

and he’ll tell his wife that

‘They’re taking drugs or

using drugs on the work

area where I’m working.’”

White also said that his

inspectors lack specific

training on drugs and drug

testing, and aren’t even allowed

to touch a miner.

He recalled once going underground

on a drug complaint,

and he had to ask

a foreman to conduct the

drug test. The young miner

refused to cooperate, and

White ordered him out of

the mine.

“He left the property,

and wrecked his vehicle,”

White said.

House Majority Whip

Mike Caputo, D-Marion,

cited how coal operators

are increasingly adopting

their own screening programs.

He asked White to

provide any available figures

of the number or percentage

of West Virginia

mines that are already testing.

A senior official with

the United Mine Workers

union, Caputo said the

northern West Virginia and

Ohio operations where he

represents miners all require

drug screenings.

The UMWA has balked

at random testing programs.

Caputo questioned

the potential burden of

a screening program on

White’s agency. White earlier

told the committees that

turnover remains an issue,

with 27 employees leaving

last year. The agency is also

short seven or eight inspectors,

White said.

“To add more things to

your plate, without probably

much more staff, that

would very difficult, I’m

assuming,” Caputo said.

“If you’re saying

we’re going to do drug

testing or oversee it at

the coal mines in this

state, we would definitely

have to have staffing,

resources and training,”

White replied.

Entertainment

Husband is

a consumer,

wife isn’t

Dear Dr. Brothers:

When I first

met my husband,

I have to admit

I was pretty impressed

by all his

stuff. He had all

the man toys you

can think of, and

I felt he was earning

a good living and

had a lot of interests to

make his rather overthe-top

lifestyle make

sense. But now that we

are married and trying to

save money for a house,

his continuous shopping

is getting on my nerves.

I think we should agree

on our mutual goals. I’m

not a consumer, and he’s

still going at it. — M.G.

Dear M.G.: It must

have been interesting to

see your husband surrounded

by all his stuff

and to try to picture your

lives together as a couple

and how you would

fit in. You may have supposed

that he would lose

some interest in acquiring

man toys, and would

concentrate instead on a

simple life of domestic

bliss. But in the absence

of any evidence to tell

you that was a reasonable

expectation, you

have to start admitting

that people don’t really

change just because

they get married and are

“supposed” to shift their

priorities. Your married

life may prove to

be more challenging to

adjust to than you’d realized,

and your mutual

goals may remain elusive

for the moment.

Someone who likes

to buy all the shiny objects

he sees may have

a hard time concentrating

on a more long-term

goal that doesn’t have

an immediate payoff.

Socking money away so

that eventually you can

enjoy your own home

just isn’t going to do it

for him. What you need

to do is sit down, possibly

with a financial

planner, and see if the

two of you can come to

terms with the specifics

of what you need to do

in order to achieve your

dream of homeownership.

Once he knows

how much disposable

income he has to devote

to buying stuff, you will

be able to tell if he has

the discipline to keep to

a budget. Then you can

go from there. Just going

on the way you are

DR. JOYCE

BROTHERS

isn’t an option.

* * *

Dear Dr. Brothers:

My co-worker

and I found what

we thought was the

perfect apartment.

We were excited at

first to discover two

guys living right

across the hall who were

willing to do some of the

heavy lifting and loaning

us hammers and stuff

like that. But we’ve been

here six weeks now, and

every time they see our

door open, they seem to

feel it’s OK to just come

over and hang out. We

don’t want them in our

lives — or our face —

and don’t know what to

do. Help! — H.B.

Dear H.B.: It sounds

like a case of you digging

a hole and jumping

in. These guys obviously

aren’t on the same wavelength

as you, or they

would have noticed by

now that you aren’t exactly

rolling out the red

carpet when they show

up at your place uninvited

at every opportunity.

Or are you? If you

really don’t want them

hanging around, then

you can’t afford to give

them any mixed signals.

No flirting, offering

them refreshments

or doing anything else

to make them feel that

your home is their home.

They obviously feel entitled

to move in on you

after you were willing

— even delighted — to

accept all you could get

from them in the way of

setting up your apartment,

and they are looking

for some payback. It

seems only fair to them.

They also may have

fallen for your charms,

and genuinely like you

and want to get to know

you. If you have boyfriends

or colleagues,

invite them over. Make

it clear that you are

not available. When

the hallmates come to

the door after work,

don’t let them enter.

Explain that you’re

cooking, or cleaning,

or washing your hair.

Make it a different excuse

every time if you

have to, and see just

how much resistance

they put up. It is likely

that they will start

taking the hint, but if

not, you will see that

you have to start being

more direct.

Despite Gisele, Patriots

say no finger-pointing

F O X B O R O U G H ,

Mass. (AP) — The Patriots

say there’s no finger-pointing

after their Super Bowl

loss, even if supermodel

Gisele Bundchen won’t

abide by that code.

The wife of New England

quarterback Tom

Brady was caught on

camera complaining that

dropped passes doomed

the team to a 21-17 loss

to the New York Giants

on Sunday — the Patriots’

second loss in the NFL title

game loss in five seasons.

Late in the game, usually

dependable receiver

Wes Welker dropped a pass

that went off his hands;

Aaron Hernandez and Deion

Branch also had trouble

coming up with catches.

Bundchen was caught on

video by TheInsider.com

responding to a pro-Giants

heckler after the game by

saying, “My husband can-

not (expletive) throw the

ball and catch the ball at

the same time.”

Brady was not available

for comment on Monday,

when the team flew back

from Indianapolis and arrived

at Gillette Stadium

on buses. Asked if the team

had any comment, Patriots

spokesman Stacey James

pursed his lips together and

shook his head from side to

side.

But defensive back

James Ihedigbo says

Welker was a big reason

the Patriots made it

to the Super Bowl, and

he’s not to blame for the

loss.

“You can’t point fingers

at anybody. Wes

made amazing plays all

season,” Ihedigbo said.

“You win it as a team;

you win it and lose it as

a team. And we lost to a

good football team.”

MAE ANDERSON

AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — The pressure

was on. The tension was thick.

And then, there were yawns in between.

The Super Bowl may have been

a nail biter, but the ads were a

snooze.

Actor Clint Eastwood waxed

for two minutes about Detroit and

Chrysler. An M&M candy stripped

“naked” at a party. And stars from

the 90s were everywhere, as were

dogs and babies, of course.

Companies paid an average of

$3.5 million for a 30-second spot

for the right to duke it out Sunday

in front of the expected 111

million-plus fans. But it was all so

ordinary with fewer surprises.

That’s mostly because nearly

half of the 70 Super Bowl advertisers

put their spots out online in

the days leading up to the game.

That’s a big difference from last

year when only a few spots were

released ahead of time. And the

companies that did wait until game

day for the “big reveal” didn’t take

many risks. In fact, most settled on

cliché plots with kids, celebs, sex

and humor.

“Advertisers this year are playing

it very safe,” said Tim Calkins,

a professor of marketing at Northwestern

University. “They’re running

spots that are clearly designed

to appeal to a broad audience and

not to offend.”

Here’s a look at the game’s ads,

play by play:

SEX SELLS — OR AT LEAST

ADVERTISERS HOPE IT DOES

Advertisers showed a little skin

in their Super Bowl.

An ad for domain name-hosting

site GoDaddy shows racecar driver

Danica Patrick and fitness expert

Jillian Michaels body painting a

nude woman. A spot for clothing

retailer H&M features soccer star

David Beckham in black-andwhite

in his undies. And online

florist Teleflora and automaker Kia

both use Victoria Secret’s model

Adriana Lima in their Super Bowl

ads.

But perhaps the two most blatant

examples of “letting it all hang

out” came from car companies.

Toyota’s spot for its “reinvented”

Camry features a “reinvented”

couch made up of women wearing

bikinis. “It also comes in male,”

a voiceover in the ad says while

showing a couch of shirtless men.

And among the few standouts

for the night was a Fiat ad that

equated seeing the car for the first

time with making out with a sexy

Italian super model. The tagline:

“You’ll never forget the first time

you see one.”

“They did a good job of showing

that some decisions are made

with the heart, some decisions are

made with the head and the Italian

car decision resides in the groin,”

said Greg Dinoto, chief creative officer

of advertising agency Deutsch

in New York. “It was sexy and surprising

and fun.”

BABIES AND DOGS, OH MY

Who doesn’t love cute animals

and babies? Advertisers are banking

there aren’t many among us.

That’s why Doritos used both.

One Doritos spot shows a man being

bribed by a dog with the chips

to keep the animal’s dirty secret

about a cat’s disappearance. In another

spot, a grandmother uses a

slingshot to hoist a baby up to grab

a bag of Doritos that belongs to a

boy in a tree who had been taunting

the baby with the chips.

Those two ads were crowd favorites,

said Peter Dabol, who analyzes

advertising effectiveness at

research firm Ace Metrix. The firm

polled 500 viewers about the ads to

find the most popular.

“It’s a typical Super Bowl, funny

carries the day,” he said. “Advertisers

are driving for attention

and likeability.”

Likewise, Skechers shoe company

introduced its new running

sneaker with an ad showing a

French bulldog winning a greyhound

race by wearing the shoes,

of course. The dog then moon

walks across the finish line.

And software company 2nd Story

Software’s ad used toilet bowl

humor, literally. The ad to promote

its free TaxAct software shows a

boy who looks everywhere to find

a respectable place to relieve himself.

He winds up going in a pool.

The tagline: “Totally free. Feels

good.”

THE STARS WERE OUT

Celebrities always draw attention.

And advertisers took a gamble

that using stars would be enough to

grab attention.

Chrysler, one of nine automakers

advertising during the game,

aired a Super Bowl ad starring

Clint Eastwood. The aging actor

Super Bowl ads battle for championship

talks about the rebirth of Chrysler

and Detroit. The two-minute “Imported

from Detroit” ad, one of the

few spots that weren’t released before

the game, follows the company’s

ad last year that starred rapper

Eminem.

“How do we come from behind,

how do we come together and how

do we win?” he asks. “Detroit is

showing us it can be done. What’s

true about them is true about all of

us.”

Chrysler’s ad was among the

few standouts on Sunday. “Those

very few ads that weren’t overexposed

up front ended up with a real

advantage,” said Raymond Taylor,

a professor of marketing at the Villanova

School of Business in Villanova,

Penn.

Meanwhile, real-estate company

Century 21’s ad shows that a real

estate agent is able to outdo speed

skater Apolo Ohno on the ice, business

mogul Donald Trump in business

and former football player

Deion Sanders at an open house.

And in an ad for Pepsi, “The

X Factor” winner Melanie Amaro

belts out “Respect” for music icon

Elton John, who plays a king in the

spot. “Pepsi for all,” she says. At

the end of the ad, John finds himself

in the dungeon with rapper and

reality TV star Flavor Flav.

REMEMBER THAT? NOS-

TALGIA FACTOR

Some advertisers attempted to

tug at viewers’ heart strings by stirring

up old, fond memories.

Honda’s ad for its compact

sports-utility vehicle CR-V shows

actor Matthew Broderick living a

grown-up version of his 1986 hit

movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

The ad includes two dozen references

to the movie.

An Acura NSX ad features

1990s comedic titan Jerry Seinfeld

battling with late-night talk show

host Jay Leno over the sportscar.

The ad includes Seinfeld references

like a cameo by the “Soup Nazi”

character.

And during Downy’s pre-game

ad, the company remakes one of

the most classic commercials of

all time, Coke’s 1980 spot “Mean

Joe Greene.” In the original, a little

boy gives a gruff football player

Joe Greene a Coke as he comes off

the field. The Downy remake stars

Greene and actress Amy Sedaris (in

the little boy role) giving Greene a

can of Downy fabric softener.

AP television Writer

NEW YORK (AP) —

For the third consecutive

year, the Super Bowl set

a record as the mostwatched

television show

in U.S. history.

The Nielsen Co. said

Monday that an estimated

111.3 million people

watched the New York

Giants beat the New

England Patriots on Sunday

night. That narrowly

beat the 111 million who

watched Green Bay’s

win over Pittsburgh last

year.

NBC was blessed by

a competitive game between

two teams that

played in one of the Super

Bowl’s most memorable

contests four years

ago, with one of them

representing the largest

media market in the

country.

The game wasn’t over

until Tom Brady’s lastsecond

heave into the

end zone dropped onto

the turf. That play itself

had the biggest audience

of any play in the game,

according to the digital

video recorder maker

Tivo. Nielsen said 117.7

million people were

watching during the last

half hour of the game.

The last two Super

Bowls, along with the

2010 game between New

Orleans and Indianapolis

and the finale of “M-A-

S-H” in 1983, are the

only programs to exceed

100 million viewers in

U.S. television history.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday,

Feb. 7, 2012:

The Full Moon on your birthday signals

a very lively year with a lot of interpersonal

interaction. If you are single

and you can stay light and easy, you’ll

discover how fun dating can be. A loved

one who is a foreigner or at a distance

might be distancing him- or herself

even more. If you care, rope this person

in! If you are attached, more often than

not you will see that your sweetie offers

a whole different perspective. Learn

to understand his or her logic. Travel

and accepting different styles might not

come easily for you. Give these areas

of your life a break. LEO can push your

buttons!

The Stars Show the Kind of Day

You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive;

3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

HHH Just as you believed you

finally got past a problem, you come

to a realization — you might not have

cleared up the issue. Confusion surrounds

the best of intentions. Push

could come to shove if you are too

confrontational. Tonight: Do your thing.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

HHHH You hear good news and

want to share it. Use care when speaking

to others. Some people cannot help

but be jealous. Stay on top of your

demands. Pressure builds if you don’t

take care of yourself. Tonight: Stay

close to home.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

HHHHH You are juggling more

than your fair share of work and other

issues. You could be very tired and

drawn from dealing with a child or loved

one. Don’t let someone else interfere

with your plans, though you’ll have to

do some juggling. Tonight: Fun and

games.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

HHHH You could be taken aback

by what another person shares. It could

cause a problem, as you know too

much and it might affect your attitude.

Stay on top of a changeable situation.

Juggle your way through an increasingly

tense matter. Tonight: Treat time.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

HHHHH If you can accept some

dissent around you, you should fare

well, because ultimately your insights

will point to the correct direction. You

wonder what is happening behind the

scenes with someone who withholds a

lot. Only you can figure it out for sure.

Listen to a child or someone who is

conflicted, and help this person under-

stand what is going on within him or

her. Tonight: All smiles.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

HHH Remain sensitive to your

inner thought process. How you handle

a situation and your choices point to

the correct solution. Don’t depend on

anyone else. Count on you, and only

you. Let laughter happen. Tonight: Play

it easy.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

HHHH No one is harder on you

than you are on yourself. You wonder

why you treat yourself as you do and

what might be the appropriate solution.

A friend or several people in a meeting

try to nudge you forward. Still, ultimately

it is your call. Tonight: Catch up on a

friend’s news.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

HHHH You could feel pushed to

the max. You wonder how to take

some of the pressure off yourself. You

might be surprised by how easy it is to

enlist people’s help. Do it more often,

and smile more often! Tonight: In the

limelight.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

HHHHH You naturally respond to

the innate ups and downs of the day.

You could be asking a lot of questions.

But somehow you are able to handle

what few can. A friendship causes a

problem when you least expect it. It

could take a while to resolve the issue.

Tonight: Let your imagination rock and

roll.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

HHHH Juggling a financial matter

— as you well know — could backfire.

You handle funds better than most.

Why challenge your wisdom and perhaps

luck? Others observe your reactions

with care. Tonight: Indulge a loved

one.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

HHHHH Clearly you want what

you want. The issue remains what to

do about a situation that is close to

your heart and that could be somewhat

provocative. Your sign is well known for

its unpredictability. You prove it once

more! Tonight: Toss yourself into living.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

HHH You have a personal matter

on your mind that takes you away from

others. You could think that something

is off or missing in a key day-to-day

matter. Don’t react; simply figure it

out. A partner expresses his or her

dismay at not having you more present.

Tonight: Easy works.
