Some tips on how to manage chronic pain


On Saturday at 2 p.m. in the Bondurant Room, the Library will be hosting a special lecture on managing chronic pain.

Brian McDaid D.O.M. will cover the differences between joint, muscle and nerve pain and some common causes of each one. He will also talk about how the body “remembers” an injury, both physically and emotionally and what last effects these can have. Then, to help with managing chronic pain, he will discuss various self-treatments that can be used, as well as alternative treatments that are available. This program is free to attend and no registration is required.

For more information, you can contact the library by calling 575-622-7101, visit us at 301 N. Pennsylvania or the website at http://roswell-nm.gov/405/Roswell-Public-Library.

Book Talk by Matthew Gormley, Reference Librarian

It seems that more big name authors have been coming out with holiday books each year. While you have authors like Debbie Macomber and Diana Palmer, who have holiday-themed books almost every year, we also have writers like Craig Johnson, better known for his Longmire mystery series, coming out with short novels for the holidays. When I was looking for a book in this theme to review for this article I ran across “The Christmas Train”, an older work by David Baldacci. Baldacci, better known for his thrillers and mysteries, wrote this book in 2003 as one of his first attempts to cross over into other genres. While it will not go down in history as one of the great works of fiction, it is a very enjoyable holiday romp which left me with a desire to take a trip by train over the holidays.

The story in “The Christmas Train” revolves around journalist Tom Langdon, who is making the best of a bad situation after being barred from flying for a year because of a disagreement with a TSA officer. Tom is taking the train from Washington D.C. to Los Angeles to spend the holidays with his girlfriend. To justify his time on the train, Tom is writing about the trip for an article he hopes to sell to one of the magazines he works for. Once aboard the train, he finds out that Eleanor Carter, his ex-girlfriend and the one true love of his life, is also aboard.

With a full and enjoyable cast of characters, ranging from truly boisterous train personnel, eccentric lonely wanders, a young couple eloping and one or two grinches, the story progresses as Tom starts to remember his feelings for Eleanor, who left him because he would not commit to their relationship. Just to make things more interesting, Tom’s current girlfriend shows up on the train proposing marriage, even though he never thought their relationship was headed that way. Throw in a sneaky thief and an avalanche along the way and you have the makings of a story to remember.

Through the course of the book, Baldacci incorporates a lot of train lore and holiday romance. Even though there is not much in the way of real suspense throughout the novel, it is still worth reading just for the warm fuzzy feeling you will get when they reach the end of the line. If this book sounds good to you, check out the new crop of holiday books available now at the library. But don’t forget about the classics like Baldacci’s “The Christmas Train.”

Roswell MVD office closed


The Roswell office of the New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division was closed Tuesday morning due technical problems.

“System down. Unable to process any transactions,” stated a sign placed on the front door of the local MVD office at 200 E. Wilshire Blvd. Tuesday morning.

A MVD employee in Roswell said MVD offices statewide were closed Tuesday morning due to technical problems.

Ben Cloutier, director of communications for the New Mexico Economic Development Department/New Mexico Taxation & Revenue Department, said Tuesday afternoon all MVD offices were open and processing all transactions.

“This morning, we experienced problems with the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators system, which effected vehicle transactions,” Cloutier said. “The issue was resolved and we are now processing all transactions.”





Realtors see improvement in housing market

Source: Roswell Association of Realtors.

The local housing market is stable and gradually improving, with the average sales price of homes for the first three quarters of 2017 recorded at $144,841, says the president of the Roswell Association of Realtors.

“Sellers that purchased during our last ‘boom’ period are just now seeing the value of their homes coming up to the value when they purchased their homes,” said Marcia Tidwell, also with Century 21 Home Planning. “Our local market is slowly improving.” The boom occurred prior to the U.S. housing crisis in late 2008.

The average 2017 third-quarter sales price of $144,841 was 96.02 percent of the list price, according to Roswell Association of Realtors statistics. For the first three quarters of the year, Jan. 1 through Sept. 30, 385 homes were sold.

The 2017 figures compare to 2016 numbers of an average sales price of $144,290 and 372 units sold.

As Tidwell points out, the differences between results for third-quarter 2017 and third-quarter 2016 are small, a $551 increase in the average sales price and an increase of 13 homes sold.

“I wouldn’t say that our market is really a buyers’ or a sellers’ market right now, just steady and stable,” she said. “Interest rates are up a little, but still low.”

The Roswell market is more robust than the countywide area.

The Realtors Association of New Mexico indicated in its third-quarter 2017 report produced Oct. 19 that the median price for homes in Chaves County for the first nine months was $127,500, a 3.4 decrease from the first nine months of 2016 and a 1.9 decrease from the same period in 2015.

That report listed 375 home units sold for the first nine months of the year, an increase compared to the same period in 2016 but a decrease from 2015.

Aside from the differences between average sale prices and median sales prices, the discrepancies between Roswell and countywide data could be a result of when reports are produced, according to real estate agents. The Roswell report was produced about a week later than the report by the state association, which would have gathered data even earlier.

According to the state association data, total volume of sales in Chaves County for the third quarter was $17,234,116. That compares to $16,405,628 for the third quarter of 2016 and $23,618,357 for July through September 2015.

Certainly a big difference can be seen from five years ago. For the third quarter of 2012, 111 homes sold in Chaves County for a total sales volume of $15,340,747. The median sales price was recorded as $112,650.

Statewide 2017 data from the Realtors Association of New Mexico shows total units sold for the first nine months were 16,232, a 13.5 percent increase from 2015. The median sales price statewide was $190,000, up 6.1 percent over 2015. Third-quarter sales volume statewide was $1.4 billion, an increase of 14.8 percent compared to 2015.

Of the 33 counties in the state, 19 reported increased sales volume for third-quarter 2017 compared to the same period of 2016 and 20 had increased volume compared to same period of 2015.

A statement by Realtors Association of New Mexico President Victoria Murphy said New Mexico was “on pace to have another record year.”

Wheelchaired man shoots former co-worker


Police believe shooter disposed firearm shortly after

A simple “hello” was met with a gunshot Sunday evening.


Police say a man leaving a cookout party at the 600 block of South Michigan Avenue was allegedly shot in the hip by a former associate while on his way to his car with his wife.

The victim, who had previously worked with 35-year-old Adam Linares on a roofing job, said he approached his former co-worker to greet him. The victim said Linares was silent after he shot him.

According to a criminal complaint in Chaves County Magistrate Court, the victim saw Linares coming down South Michigan in his wheelchair while the victim and his wife were walking toward their vehicle.

The victim told the Roswell Police Department that he saw Linares pull a handgun from his lap.

Police were dispatched to the incident around 6:32 p.m. Sunday.

Detective Joseph Mason of the RPD said he observed a bullet wound on the left hip of the victim.

The victim was later taken by ambulance to Eastern New Mexico Medical Center for treatment.

Detective Mason later met with Dr. Thomas Wulf of the Eastern New Mexico Medical Center Sunday, where he learned that the projectile had not yet been removed.

The victim’s wife told Mason while she did not hear any words being exchanged at the time of the shooting, she did see the man in the wheelchair pull a gun out, as well as a flash of light from the firearm.

The detective also spoke with the friend hosting the cookout. He told police he heard a pop, and then the scream, “Oh my God, he’s been shot” from the victim’s wife.

The witness said he saw a man in a wheelchair with a shaved head wearing a Raiders shirt and beige pants. After the shooting, Linares went back into his home.

Police said Linares went into his residence after the shooting and refused orders to exit.

Authorities believe that Linares either disposed of the firearm or was aided by someone in doing so.

After a warrant was issued at the residence, an extensive search was conducted within the residence. According to the complaint, officers were unable to locate the weapon.

Outside, police said investigators observed a pair of pants, a wallet and what appeared to be blood along the 600 block of South Michigan. A .380 shell casing was also found in the middle of the avenue, which was in close proximity to the area where the shooting occurred.

The detective also spoke with a woman that had been living with Linares. According to police, she stated that nothing happened and that Linares was home all day.

Detective Mason also reached out to officer Scott Wrenn of the RPD.

“I could not see the person on the front porch very clearly, but I could tell it was a subject in a wheelchair,” Wrenn said. “I moved around to the north and took up a position behind my unit, directly in front of the house, to get a better view.”

Wrenn said officers were telling Linares to come toward them at the front of his house, but that he was not complying.

“He was argumentative — telling us to come and get him,” Wrenn said. “After a few minutes of commands, he finally wheeled himself to the front of the property down the driveway.

“He did not follow our orders when we told him to come out into the street. He turned to the south and drove down the sidewalk. I ran around my unit and contacted him on the sidewalk near the edge of his property.”

Wrenn said Linares was placed into handcuffs and successfully detained without incident.

The Daily Record reached out to the shooting victim Monday evening. While the couple did not want to comment on the shooting, the victim’s wife did advise that her husband has since left the hospital and is doing OK.

Linares is charged with evading or obstructing an officer, a misdemeanor, aggravated battery, a third-degree felony and tampering with evidence, a fourth-degree felony.

Halloween fun with first-responders

Children will be able to enjoy a safe and fun Halloween event today while also getting to know first-responders at the inaugural Fall Festival from 4 to 7 p.m. at Russ DeKay Soccer Complex.

The event at 1500 N. Grand Ave., near the Wool Bowl, will feature trunk-or-treat, carnival games, inflatable jumpers and Halloween-themed music. Those attending are welcome to dress up in costumes, however no guns of any type — including fake, toy, water or any other gun-like items — are allowed.

Police, firefighters and emergency medical personnel will have candy at the ready for trunk-or-treat activities that will include a chance for children and adults to visit with local first-responders and get a look at vehicles from the Roswell Police Department, the Roswell Fire Department, the Chaves County Sheriff’s Office, New Mexico State Police, and Superior Ambulance.

As trick-or-treaters roam through neighborhoods today, the Roswell Police Department offers some safety tips to parents and other adults to try to make sure trick-or-treating doesn’t become scary.

• Trick-or-treaters should try to make their rounds in a group, if possible. All younger children, whether in a group or on their own, should be accompanied by an adult or responsible older teenager.

• If it’s going to be dark at any time while trick-or-treating, equip yourself and your kids with flashlights. Also, avoid approaching any houses that don’t have lights on by the door to welcome trick-or-treaters.

• Remind your children to move around the neighborhood on sidewalks, when possible, rather than walking in the street. Everyone needs to be mindful of vehicle traffic, remembering to look in all possible directions for vehicles before crossing or entering a street. No pedestrian should enter a street by walking between two parked vehicles along the curb. Drivers may not be able to see that person soon enough to safely stop.

• Drivers should drive slowly and be alert that night, remembering there will be a much greater number of young pedestrians out and about.

• It is best if trick-or-treaters stick to houses where trusted friends and neighbors live. Don’t go inside houses unless they are those of family or friends.

• Dress children in costumes that have bright colors and perhaps reflective pieces. Make sure masks have eyeholes that are big enough to see out of. Costumes should fit properly, without pieces dragging around children’s feet creating the hazard of a potential trip and fall. Avoid costumes that include any pieces or accessories that are too sharp or otherwise could be an injury risk.

• Parents should inspect all treats the children collect before any of it is eaten. If children are out on their own, instruct them not to eat any of it before they return home and an adult checks it out. Any candy pieces or other items that are unwrapped or not in their original wrappers or appear to be homemade or tampered with should be discarded unless the parent has firsthand knowledge of the source and absolutely trusts that source.

• Unfortunately, there are sex offenders in most communities, and Roswell is no different. Citizens can find out where convicted offenders are living near them by visiting the OffenderWatch website. That information can be used to take appropriate steps when planning the trick-or-treating route.

• Parents and other family adults should make sure children are well-instructed and well-prepared for a safe and enjoyable time.

Donation expected to help Artesia police program

ARTESIA — A recent donation by Concho Oil and Gas is expected to be a boost to the Artesia Police Department.

APD spokesperson commander Lindell Smith says the $1,000 donation is expected to help move APD’s opioid antagonist program along.

“We want to be ready and we want to be to able to do what we’re sworn to do and to protect and serve our citizens,” he said.

Smith said APD received a state grant for Narcan, which is used to treat opioid addiction.

“We needed to have some storage solutions for that,” he said. “Because of the hot weather here and it is a scheduled medication, so it has to be under lock and key.”

Smith added the donation from Concho will be used for storage and security purposes for APD.

“That’s gonna help us out a lot,” Smith said.

Smith said the storage solution will help keep the medicine at the proper temperature and it will be readily available if it is needed.

“We have to do that or the medication is just worthless if it’s in a hot car,” he said.

Smith said the storage locker will be located at APD’s headquarters at 3300 W. Main. St.

Smith was asked if Artesia mirrors the nation when it comes to the opioid problem.

“We have not had any specific incidents that APD has been called to as far as opioid overdoses accidental or on purpose, illicit drug types that we can recall, but it’s a national trend and I think we would be kind of aloof to say that it’s not gonna happen here at one point or another,” he said.

Smith added, “to put it in the category that it’s probably coming…probably sooner rather than later, it’s better that we be prepared for it.”

“We’re not only talking about illicit drug users, we’re also talking about children that might get into medications,” Smith said. “Or we’re talking about police officers that search cars and find different substances and are overcome by them.”

Smith said that antagonist Narcan can be used on anybody, “if we see or know the signs of an overdose and it’s indicated, we give the Narcan. It doesn’t hurt if we give it, say for a few quirky side effects, but if we don’t give it, the person is not going to be breathing and that’s obviously an issue.”

Lucky ladies and gambling guys hit jackpot

Last weekend was the last performance of Way Way Off-Broadways comedic musical, “Guys and Dolls” at Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell Performing Art Center. The iconic musical depicts New York City during the roaring ’20s with underground gamblers and flirty burlesque girls.

The chemistry between the characters and perfect timed comical moments brought the audience on their feet giving standing ovations. One of the most outstanding performances were by Julie Washichek as burlesque performer and “forever-fiancee” Adelaide. Cydni Vandiver brought the audience to tears laughing, especially when she — as missionary Sarah Brown — accidentally gets drunk and starts to dance. A surprise for those who have followed Vandiver’s career as comedian came when she started singing. Both, Washichek and Vandiver, showed their talents in the duet, “Marry The Man Today.”

After announcing the upcoming show of Neverland Theatre Company and the Roswell Community Little Theatre, Tony Souza (Sky Masterson) invited interested performers to come to the auditions for “Peter Pan” at ENMU-R PAC on Nov. 13 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 14 at 9 p.m. For more information, visit waywayoffbroadway.com.

Welcome to the 8-Man free-for-all


“I’m happy.”

Those are the words Gateway Christian School head football coach Shaun Wigley used to describe his team’s return to the 8-Man playoffs.

The Warriors ended the regular season Friday night in Cloudcroft with a 58-8 win over the Bears.

“We got a big win Friday, that’s the best we looked all year,” Wigley said of the Warriors bagging the Bears.

Gateway(4-3) takes on Albuquerque Menaul(5-4) in the opening round of the playoffs Friday at 7 p.m. at Warrior Stadium in Roswell.

The Albuquerque Menaul Panthers ended the regular season with 38-12 loss to fellow Duke City school Foothill.

The Warriors are the no. 7 seed in the playoffs, while the Panthers are no. 10. The winner faces the no. 2 seed Mountainair in the quarterfinals next week.

Melrose, the defending 8-Man state champions are the no. 1 seed and will face either Cloudcroft or Carrizozo next week in the quarterfinals.

The Bears are the no. 8 seed and the Grizzlies are the no. 9 seed and will square off in Cloudcroft Friday at 7 p.m. Both of those schools are in District 3 along with Gateway.

Two other District 3 schools are off this week. Mesilla Valley Christian is the no. 3 seed in the tournament. The Son Blazers face either Foothill or Logan.

The Falcons check in at no. 6 and the Longhorns are no. 11 in the playoffs. Both teams face off at 1 p.m. at Milne Stadium in Albuquerque.

The final team from District 3, Tatum is the no. 4 seed in the tournament and will play either Dora/Elida or Pinehill.

The Coyotes are the no. 5 seed in the tournament and the Warriors are the no. 12 seed. Kick off in Dora is Friday at 7 p.m.

Wigley said District 3 is,”one of the toughest toughest district’s in 8-Man. We have always known if you can win district you can make it to state.”

Even though Mescalero Apache High School will be staying home, Wigley said the Warriors were in the hunt for the playoffs.

Homelessness in Roswell is serious


Thank you for enlightening your readership on the seriousness of Roswell’s homeless population.

It’s not a simple problem nor is the solution simple.

Many issues must be addressed as Roswell moves forward in providing a safer environment and shelter for all its citizens.

For anyone not aware or informed of Roswell’s homeless population or bridge community from all age groups, it’s been and still is a serious situation.
