AUSTIN (AP) —
Attorney General Greg
Abbott asked Monday
for the district judge
overseeing Texas’
sweeping school fnance
trial to recuse himself
because of perceived bias
in emails he exchanged
with attorneys for school
districts suing the state.
In a 21-page motion,
Abbott’s offce cited
more than 30 messages
from plaintiff attorneys
and Judge John Dietz or
his staff between March
19 and May 14. It argued
the emails came “while
evidence was still open”
and “leave little question
that the judge must be
recused from further
hearing or trial of this case
because his impartiality
might now be reasonably
questioned.”
The motion says emails
between Dietz and his
staff and school district
attorneys were exchanged

without the state’s
knowledge and only
divulged May 15. Abbott’s
offce says they improperly
discussed the merits of the
case.
Abbott, a Republican,
is running for governor
and is not arguing the
case personally. But his
offce’s motion, asks
Dietz to recuse himself
or refer the matter to a
“regional presiding judge
for consideration.”
The case stems from
more than 600 school
districts responsible for
educating three-quarters
of Texas public school
students that sued in
2011, arguing that the
Legislature’s cutting of
$5.4 billion in classroom
funding violated state
constitutional guarantees
to an adequate education.
The districts said they
no longer had suffcient
resources to educate young
Texans — especially given
public school enrollment
growth of nearly 80,000
students per year thanks
to the state’s booming
population, as well as
tough, state-mandated
standardized testing and
curriculum requirements
to graduate high school.
Abbott’s offce, arguing
on behalf of the state,
countered that while the
school fnance system
wasn’t perfect, it was far
from a crisis point.
In February 2013, Dietz
ruled public education
funding was inadequate
and unfairly distributed
between school districts
in rich and poor areas.
That summer, lawmakers
restored about $3.4 billion
in classroom funding
while easing standardized
testing requirements.
Dietz reopened the
case this January to
hear evidence on the
Legislature’s actions.
Dietz’s court was
closed late Monday, and
no one was available for
comment.

WARSAW, Poland
(AP) — President Barack
Obama announced
Tuesday that the United
States plans to boost
its military presence in
Europe as tensions simmer
in the region over Russia’s
actions in Ukraine.
Standing next to Polish
President Bronislaw
Komorowski, Obama
said the U.S. would rotate
more American troops into
the region and called on
Congress to provide up to
$1 billion to support the
effort.
“Under this effort,
and with the support of
Congress, the United States
will preposition more
equipment in Europe,”
Obama said at in Warsaw’s
Belweder Palace.
Obama’s announcement
came at the start of a three-
country swing through
Europe. The White House
said the funding would be
used to increase military
exercises and training
missions, as well as
rotations of air and ground
forces, on the continent.
Offcials said Obama
was also seeking to ramp
up U.S. Navy participation
in NATO deployments in
the Black and Baltic Seas,
plus working to boost the
military capacity of non-
NATO countries that sit on
Russia’s border, including
Ukraine, Georgia and
Moldova.
Speaking the day before
Obama was scheduled
to meet for the frst time
with Ukraine’s newly
elected president, Petro
Poroshenko, Obama said
he wants both the U.S.
and Ukraine to have good
relations in the future with
Russia.
He called on Moscow to
avoid further provocation in
Ukraine, warning that such
provocations would be met
with further consequences.
The U.S. and Europe
have already levied
sanctions against Russian
offcials, but are holding
off on further sanctions
amid signs Russia may
be willing to accept the
legitimacy of Ukraine’s
new government.
“Russia has a
responsibility to engage
constructively with the
government in Kiev,”
Obama said.
NATO secretary
general Anders Fogh
Rasmussen hailed Obama’s
announcement that the U.S.
would bolster its presence
on the continent.
“The United States
has reacted swiftly after
Russia’s illegal military
actions in Ukraine,”
Rasmussen said.
Obama: U.S. to
increase military
presence in Europe
WASHINGTON (AP)
— The food of migrant
children trying to cross
the Mexican border alone
has become an “urgent
humanitarian situation”
that is likely to cost the
government more than
$1 billion more than the
Obama administration
thought.
Late last week, the
Obama administration
asked Congress for
$1.4 billion in extra
funding to help house,
feed and transport the
tens of thousands of
children being caught
trying to cross the border
illegally, and turned to
the Defense Department
to help temporarily house
more than 1,000 of the
children.
President Barack
Obama described the
situation in stark terms
and appointed the head of
the Federal Emergency
Management Agency,
Craig Fugate, to lead the
government’s response.
In the past eight months
alone, 47,000 children
have been apprehended at
the southwest border.
Children trying to cross
the border alone are not
a new phenomenon, and
the numbers have been
on the rise since 2009.
But Obama’s director of
domestic policy, Cecilia
Munoz, said the increase
in 2014 is larger than
last year and the group
also now includes more
girls and larger numbers
of children younger
than 13. The increase
appears to have caught
the administration by
surprise, despite growing
increases over the past
few years.
“All of these things are
contributing to the sense
of urgency,” Munoz
said. “These are children
who have gone through
a harrowing experience
alone. We’re providing
for their proper care.”
The government
estimates that as many as
60,000 children, mostly
from Central America,
could be caught at the
border this year. That
would be a nearly 10-fold
increase since 2011.
Between 2008 and
2011, the number of
children landing in the
custody of the Offce of
Refugee Resettlement
fuctuated between
6,000 and 7,500 a year.
In 2012 border agents
apprehended 13,625
unaccompanied children,
and that number surged
even more — to over
24,000 — last year.
Rampant crime and
poverty across Central
America and a desire to
reunite with parents or
other relatives is thought
to be driving many of
the young immigrants.
Migrant kids remain in
removal proceedings even
after they’re reunited with
their parents here, though
many have been able to
win permission from an
immigration judge to stay
in the U.S.
The growth has
surpassed the system’s
capacity to process
and house the children,
prompting the government
to open an emergency
operations center in South
Texas to help coordinate
the efforts of Refugee
Resettlement, a division
of the Health and Human
Services Department. It
also turned to the Defense
Department for the
second time since 2012
to help house children
in barracks at Lackland
Air Force Base near San
Antonio.
Mark Greenberg, an
assistant HHS secretary,
said Monday that about
1,000 children were being
housed at the Texas base
and as many as 600 others
could soon be housed at
a Navy base in Southern
California.

Lee Atkins
For those of you who
may have been expecting
to see me, or thought
you saw me (which I
assure you, you did not)
over the past few days,
please accept my humble
apologies. It wasn’t my
fault ... I’ve been wearing
my specially-designed
straight jacket and visiting
the hotel with the padded
rooms.
I, regardless of what
you may have heard, have
not been cast to star in a
remake of “The Invisible
Man.” Personally, I
refuse to be in any movie
that does not have beach
scenes, pineapples or
bikinis. And, in case you
missed it, judging by how
pale (and that is a nice
way of saying I’m ghostly
white) my complexion is,
you can surely guess that
I haven’t been asked to be
in any movies involving
beaches, pineapples or
bikinis.
Now that we
have cleared up any
misconceptions, I will
spend the next few
moments updating you
as to why I, otherwise
known as myself, or me,
or Captain T (when I talk
to myself during a heroic
effort of saving small
puppies from apartment
fres), have been out of
pocket over the last few
days. Well ... the simple
truth is ... I have been
dealing with everything
with my children and
from driving with three
young girls.
First, as you may have
guessed since I’ve only
been here a few days, I
have been making semi-
regular trips back to Big
Spring so that SWMBMM
and the four children
whom she adopted as
infants while making a
visit to a hospital years
before can take turns
borrowing money from
me, and driving all the
gas out of my work car.
(Note to teens: It is always
preferable to use up your
parental unit’s fuel than
your own.)
My children have the
driving the gas part out
down to a work of art.
In fact, my youngest son
could well go down as the
Picasso of gas measurers.
He can bring the car
home with .08 of a cup in
the tank.
I know this because on
more than one occasion,
including Saturday, I
came up short of reaching
the station in the car. I
did, eventually, make it to
the station on foot, with a
gas can.
Adding to the “not
being here” situation is
the fact that SWMNBMM
feels I should actively
be a part of the younger
children’s lives that hang
about our place. I assured
her that I would rather
perform as a rodeo clown
with lead boots than do
that, but she can be kind
of persuasive with the
broom handle.
In fact, once I had
to spend several days
at the hospital after our
granddaughter, Baby
Mal, and her two cousins,
Zyneka and Veronica,
had to go to the doctor.
Baby Mal, Zyneka and
Veronica all survived
getting their school shots
... and the doctor released
me to light activity after
two days of concussion
treatments. I’m pretty
sure the use of my legs
will return in a few
months.
Perhaps the biggest
reason for my awayness
is the simple fact that
my brain has developed
an allergic reaction to
riding in the same car
as Baby Mal, ZZ and
Ronnie. After 200 miles
of screaming, laughing,
tattling and “Are we there
yet?” I found myself
considering leaping from
the car window when I
was doing 75 through
Lubbock. I think anyone
who hasn’t had small
children in years, should
be able to appreciate the
feeling I was having.
Even a painful end to a
long drive would still be
a blissful end.
“Uncle Tommy, are
you ignoring us?”
“Are we there yet?”
“I have to go use the
restroom.”
“How much
looonnger?”
I’m hungry.”
I answered every
question until I lost my
voice. I turned up the
radio until I couldn’t hear
them. I chewed off my
bottom lip. I fed them
hamburgers, sticky taffy,
packages of yogurt, a
small elephant and enough
peanuts to bankrupt the
Jiffy company.
They stayed away and
asking questions.
“Uncle Tommy, are
you ignoring us?”
“Are we there yet?”
“I have to go use the
restroom.”
“How much
looonnger?”
I’m hungry.”
I must be honest.
I was amazed that
SWMNBMM could
sleep through a question-
and-answer session that
would have made most
FBI offcers jealous. I
was just wishing I could
have found anything to
put them to sleep.
Finally, we made it to
Borger.
Excuse me while I
lock myself in the closet
and recover. I need
the rest because we
have to make the drive
again this weekend ...
only to Houston for a
graduation.
If you don’t see me next
week, please forward all
my mail to the Big Spring
State Hospital. I’ll read it
just as soon as the schock
therapy treatment starts
working.
Tommy Wells, who
survived the growth of fve
children and a son-in-law
when he was younger but
may not make it through
a granddaughter and
two nieces, is the acting
editor of the Borger
News-Herald.
Somebody make them go to sleep, please!

5
ARIES (March 21 to April 19)
This is a wonderful, creative
day! Trust your creative impulses.
Socialize with others, work with
arts and crafts, and enjoy playing
with children.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
You will want to hang out at
home today. You might like to
spend the time alone, to relax and
be introspective; or you might
want to relate to family members.
Your choice.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)
This is a lovely day for short
trips, conversations with others,
especially siblings and relatives,
plus doing errands. You are
eager to talk to others. However,
avoid important decisions and
purchases.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22)
Although your focus might
be on fnancial matters today,
this is a poor day for important
decisions. It’s also a poor
day for major expenditures
and purchases. Forewarned is
forearmed.
LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22)
Today the Moon is in your sign,
which makes you more emotional
than usual. However, it also can
bring you a bit of extra good
luck! Yay me!
VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
You will enjoy some quiet time
today if you get a chance to
squeeze this in. Being high-viz
can be exhausting. Try to get
some rest.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
A conversation with a female
acquaintance or colleague could
be signifcant today. It will be
easy for both parties to be honest
and genuine.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov.
21)
Personal details about your
private life might be made public
today, especially in the eyes of
people in authority. Just be aware
of this in case you have to do
some damage control.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to
Dec. 21)
Do something to get you
out of your daily routine. Go
someplace you’ve never been
before. Travel if you can. Enjoy
talking to people from different
backgrounds.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan.
19)
Although you might be
focused on details regarding
shared property, insurance
matters, inheritances and such,
delay important decisions until
tomorrow. Use today to do your
homework and get your facts
straight.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb.
18)
Because the Moon is opposite
your sign today, you will have
to go more than halfway when
dealing with others. (Just be your
usual charming self.)
PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20)
Despite your wish to get better
organized and be effcient today,
you might be plagued with delays
and shortages. Just cope as best
you can.

The Borger High Class
of 1994 is hosting the Any-
time Fitness Jeep Webb 5K
and Fun Run at Huber Park
on June 21. While the race
is part of the Class of ‘94’s
reunion weekend, it is also
a way for the community to
honor a beloved coach who
has been an inspiration to
students for more than 50
years, E.J. “Jeep” Webb.
Webb has coached foot-
ball, cross country, track
and basketball during his
career. He continues to
support and inspire Borger
High School students to
this day.
Because of his dedica-
tion to so many students,
the members of the BHS
Class of ‘94 decided to do-
nate a part of the proceeds
of the race to the Borger
High School cross country
program in Coach Webb’s
name.
Webb has agreed to be
present at the race to pres-
ent the medals to the win-
ners in each category.
Pre-race packets can be
picked up from 6 p.m. to
8 p.m. on Friday, June 20,
at Wildcatters. Pre-race
registration will be held
from 6 a.m to 6:45 a.m. on
June 21. The 5-kilometer
race will start at 7 a.m. The
2014 Fun Run will begin at
7:30 a.m.

cates 5K/Fun Run in

IRVING, Texas (AP) —
Justin Durant was as sick as
anyone to see Sean Lee go
down with a torn knee liga-
ment in the frst offseason
practice for the Dallas Cow-
boys.
To suggest the injury
gives Durant an opportu-
nity to be the starting middle
linebacker sort of turns the
eight-year veteran’s stom-
ach.
“It hurt me seriously to
my core,” Durant said of the
left ACL injury that is likely
to keep Lee out in 2014. “I
just look at it as my trying
to step up and fll some big
shoes.”
Durant isn’t the only op-
tion under consideration
by the Cowboys, who still
haven’t specifed Lee’s in-
jury or said how long they
expect him to be sidelined.
Fourth-round pick An-
thony Hitchens wasn’t far
behind Durant for the start
of the second week of off-
season practice Monday, the
same day Hitchens signed his
rookie contract. And second-
year player DeVonte Hollo-
man worked off to the side,
nursing a sore hamstring. If
one of those three isn’t at the
center of the Dallas defense
in the season opener against
San Francisco in about three
months, it will probably be
someone off the streets.
The Cowboys aren’t in a
hurry to decide.
“I don’t have timetables,”
linebackers coach Matt
Eberfus said. “I really don’t.
Like I said, just working
with who’s on the grass.”
Durant and Holloman
started the last three games
of 2013 after Lee was side-
lined by a neck injury.
Durant made the frst of
those three starts before a
hamstring injury sidelined
him. Holloman took the last
two, and had the frst two
sacks of his career in the
season fnale against Phila-
delphia.
But Holloman hasn’t
made it the practice feld this
offseason because of a ham-
string injury after the sixth-
round pick missed seven
games his rookie season
with a neck problem. And
he was drafted as an outside
linebacker.
“The reason he’s valu-
able is he’s got position
fex,” Eberfus said. “Where
he fts in the lineup I’m not
sure yet. But he’ll decide
that with his play.”
A year after coming to
Dallas as a free agent who
fgured to be a backup, Du-
rant fnds himself by far the
most experienced option to
replace Lee. And that could
mean a more vocal role for
a guy who blended into the
background his frst year
with the Cowboys.
“Sean of course is a huge
leader on our defense,” said
Durant, who has started 74
of 89 games in his frst seven
years. “I’m going to be me
but I’m also going to step up
and I’m going step in and do
some things sometimes.”
Hitchens was drafted a
couple of rounds earlier than
most projections, with Dal-
las thinking about insurance
after Lee missed almost half
the previous two seasons
with injuries. The Cowboys
didn’t fgure on having to
cash in on that policy so
quickly.
“I just take it as this is
my job and this is what they
brought me in here for,”
Hitchens said. “I signed up
for this. I usually don’t look
ahead.”
If he’s looking ahead,
coach Jason Garrett isn’t
saying. The coach wouldn’t
rule out a return in 2014
by Lee, who has missed 18
games in four seasons with
hamstring, wrist, toe and
neck injuries.
“We feel like we have
more guys to start with
than we had last year at this
time,” Garrett said. “We
want to be sure those guys
get an opportunity to show
us what they can do. We’re
also trying to fnd the best
three linebackers.”
The Cowboys won’t be
settling on those three any-
time soon.

61 overall record and the

lege Athletice Conference

The Pistons hired Stan
Van Gundy as their coach
and team president last
month.
Bower was the coach
at Marist College last
season.
