" .2 FRIDAY, JULY 31, 2009 9 Barraza retires from WNMU Foundation Submitted by ABE VILLARREALIWNMU After 14 years of service, Fred Barraza has retired from the West- ern New Mexico University Foundation Board of Direc- tors. The Silver City native said that his current job as acting executive direc- tor for Grant County Senior Services (GCSS) is re- quiring a tot of his time. "The University is still very impor- tant to me," added Barraza, Barraza earned his bachelor degree in aca- demic studies and fine arts in 1983 at WNMU, Married with two children, his new post with GCSS requires him to#versee four senior centers i'n Grant County. Director of the State Library Fred Barraza Book Mobile program for 25 years, Barraza has worked for both non-profit and private enti- ties. "I am going to now focus my fundraising ef- forts towards my job at se- nior services," said Barraza. For more than a decade Barraza helped raise funds for the WNMU Foundation, a privately funded organi- zation that es- tablishes scholarships and endow- ments while also raising funds for WNMU. "We are all there to do what we can, for Western," said Barraza. The WNMU Foundation currently has thirteen board members. Udall Urges less expensive Medicare prescriptbn drugs Medicare beneficiaries to buy Courtesy-Submission U.S Senator Tom Udall, D- N.M., joined by twenty-one other senators, last week sent atetter to the Senate Finance Committee today urging the panel to reform the Medicare Part D prescription drug program as a part of health reform m make it more affordable for seniors and the government. "The success of the health care reform effort hinges on whether-W6 can find ways over the long=term to pay less for health eare without compromis- ing the-goal of high-quality care for every American.-This is an enormous challenge, but the fact that Americans pay more than twice as much as other industri- alized countries for worse health outcomes indicates that there are tremendous inefficiencies embed- ded in the system. If we are to succeed in health refoffwe.can- not allow those inefficiencies to remain;' the senators wrote: The  D program allows [111[ I lt0,ve something to n# heher00ld @unex .net prescription drug coverage from private insurance companies, It has been criticized because the coverage is limited, including a "doughnut hole" in which seniors who have exceeded a certain level of benefits continue paying premiums but receive no help on drug costs, and drug prices in Medicare are far higher than in other programs such as the Veter- ans' Health Administration The letter to Finance Com- mittee Chairman Max Baucus and Ranking Member Chuck Grassley comes as the committee is considering legislation to re- form health care. It lays out sev- eral options that could generate savings from Part D, including: - Allowing Medicare to ne- gotiate Part D prices, as is cur- rently done by the Department of Vterans Affairs; Creating a Medicare ad- ministered Part D plan that could compete against existing private plans; and Requiring pharmaceutical companies to pay rebates to Medicare for drugs delivered un- der Part D if Medicare is not given the authority to negotiate prices directly. For example,, reversing a policy that eliminated Medic- aid rebates for low-income eld- erly could result in $63 billion in savings over the next ten years, according to the Congressional Budget Office. "Substantial savings could be generated through sensible" changes to the Part D drug ben- efit - savings that would benefit both taxpayers and the seniors and people with disabilities who rely on the program," concluded the senators. New signs put up In addition to the Bethel Fuller historical marker placed on Motel Drive, th New Mexico Department of Transportation, with the help of the Cultural Properties Review Committee, has been busy placing signs in Hidalgo County. Above left, the history of Lordsburg is briefly outlined at this marker, located atthe Visitor's Information Cente west of Lordsburg.

A 2- sided Wo men of Shakespeare sign has .also been put up at the Welcome Center, but information on the sign is inaccurate and will be replaced. (see below) Bill would allow for mandatory meat product recalls, protect consumers and ranchers Courtesy submission U.S. Senator Tom Udall, D- N.M., Tuesday introduced legis- lation giving the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) authority to initiate man- datory meat product recalls, Under current law. USDA does not have the authority to is- sue a mandatory recall of meat believed to be dangerous. The decision to recall or comply with requests from the USDA to recall unsafe products is left in the hands of food processors. This forces the USDA to engage in time-consuming negotiations with meatpackers before pulling tainted meat from store shelves, and it gives meatpackers an ef- fective veto on recalls. Udall first introduced the legislation in 2003. "When the U$DA cannot get tainted meat off the market swiftly, all our consumers are at risk." said Udall. "This legisla- tion will give USDA the author- ity to actquickly and decisively to protect the public." Last week. the Denver-based King Soopers grocery chain re- called 466,236 pounds of ground beef products that were distrib- uted to stores in Colorado, Kan- sas, Missom)i. Nebraska, New Mex-eo Utah and Wyoming. Only 'one store in New Mexico received the recalled meat, but in Colorado fourteen cases of salmo- nella were reported and six people were hospitalized. Last year, the USDA re- quested a recall of 143 million pounds of beef from a slaughter- house that was being investigated for unsafe practices. USDA's Commodity Foods Program had sent 3.000 cases of the question- able beef to New Mexico's Hu- man Services Department to be distributed to school lunch pro- grams. Most of the recalled beef was found before it was served. Udall noted that: 5.000 people die each year from food-borne illnesses, 325.000 people are hos- pitalized each year from food- borne illnesses, and 76.000.000 people get sick each year from food-borne illnesses. Udall also pointed out that the poor conditions that led to last week's beef recall are rare. - 'When-consumers dO-mat- trust that their beef is safe." said Udall. "it hurts ranchers who had nothing to do with tainted beeL Enforcement of health standards isn't just good for consumers; it's crucial for New Mexico's ranch- ers Y Local shuttle to be available to Deming Duck Races Courthouse Park in Deming.
