Mother Jones releases audio from Martinez’s 2010 gubernatorial campaign by Chloe Henson and Erika Eddy

Washington-based online news outlet Mother Jones released audio Wednesday morning of Gov. Susana Martinez speaking with her aides during her gubernatorial campaign in 2010, and her comments have drawn criticism. In one recording on Mother Jones’ website, Martinez says she could not say that teachers, who work during school years, earn salaries at the same rate as other professions. “During the campaign we can’t say it, I guess, because it’s education, but I keep going back to that keeping the teachers from feeling the pain when they already don’t work, you know, two and a half months out of the year, three months out of the year, but earn salaries at the same rate people who do work 12 months a year,” she said. The article claims the aides were Matt Kennicott, Martinez’s then-deputy campaign manager, and Jay McCleskey. National Education Association-New Mexico President Betty Patterson said in a press release that most educators don’t work nine months out of the year. “Very few teachers work only nine months, very few get paid as if they worked twelve months,” Patterson said. “Most teachers use the summer for professional development, to learn new curriculum and to write curriculum for their districts … During the nine months teachers work directly with students, we put in endless hours beyond what is paid or expected.” In a second recording, Martinez says a woman from the New Mexico Commission on the Status of Women came to speak with her. Martinez says she wasn’t aware of the function of the commission. “I just don’t know what they do — I mean, I understand that

we have 10 cabinet positions, more than the federal government, but some of them seem to be in name only,” she says. “I don’t get what in the hell does a commission of women’s cabinet do all day long?”

“... I guess, because it’s education, but I keep going back to that keeping the teachers from feeling the pain when they already don’t work, you know, two and a half months out of the year, three months out of the year ...” ~Susana Martinez New Mexico Governor Chris Sanchez, a spokesman for Martinez, said the material Mother Jones posted was stolen. Mother Jones did not reveal its sources in the story. “Today, an extreme left-wing blog posted four-year-old material from private conversations undoubtedly sent to them by individuals or their allies who are either under federal indictment, or have had their homes raided by the FBI for their role in stealing or distributing Governor Susana Martinez’s email,” Sanchez said in a statement. “That the national Left is trying to smear the first Hispanic woman governor in American history because they view her as a threat is about as surprising as the National Enquirer reporting that Elvis is still alive”

Court reviews election challenge against Democrat by Barry Massey Associated Press

SANTA FE — New Mexico’s highest court revived a lawsuit on Wednesday that aims to remove a maverick Democratic legislator from the June 3 primary election ballot. The outcome of the election challenge is being closely watched by Democrats and Republicans because Rep. Sandra Jeff of Crownpoint has sided with the GOP and Gov. Susana Martinez

on high-profile legislative votes, including backing the governor’s proposal to stop New Mexico from issuing driver’s licenses to immigrants living illegally in the country. Jeff, a member of the Navajo Nation, is among five Native Americans serving in the 70-member House. The state Supreme Court ordered the election challenge back to a district court in Gallup for a hearing Friday on whether Jeff submitted enough valid voter

signatures on nominating petitions to qualify as a candidate. McKinley County resident Larry King brought the lawsuit with the assistance of an environmental group, Conservation Voters New Mexico, which contends Jeff has a poor environmental voting record. Two other Democrats are running against Jeff in the primary. District Judge Louis DePauli had dismissed the election challenge against Jeff because he determined she didn’t receive proper legal notice of the lawsuit.

But the state Supreme Court disagreed after a 45-minute hearing on Wednesday and ordered DePauli to consider the dispute over Jeff ’s nominating petitions. The judge must make a decision by Monday, and the Supreme Court temporarily blocked the secretary of state from mailing out ballots to any overseas voters from the district while the case is pending. Without the order, ballots would have been mailed on Saturday. With Democrats clinging to a narrow majority in the House, Jeff

has become a swing vote on several key issues. A $6.2 billion budget proposal failed in the House on a tie vote earlier this year after Jeff joined Republicans in opposing the measure. Jeff later supported a compromise budget bill that was signed into law. Jeff did not attend the Supreme Court hearing or last month’s district court hearing. She also had no lawyer representing her in the proceedings.

Fiesta 2014 draws roughly 8,000

Cyberinfrastructure Day takes place April 25

The Associated Students of the University of New Mexico Student Special Events hosted its annual Fiesta celebration on Johnson Field Saturday. Sean Trauth, executive director of ASUNM Student Special Events, said there were likely about 8,000 students in attendance throughout the day, which he said was an improvement from last year’s attendance. The festival included dancers, stilt walkers, food trucks, body art, yoga, ziplines, spray-painting and other activities. Trauth said there were also both local and visiting bands performing at the event, with the band Tritonal headlining. Trauth said he considered this year’s Fiesta to be a great success. “It was fantastic,” he said. “Our boss even said it was the most successful Fiesta she’s ever seen.”

Scientists from across the state will gather April 25 to discuss cyberinfrastructure applications and how they apply to computing, data and knowledge, according to a press release from the UNM Newsroom. The event is sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research, the Center for Advanced Research Computing and the Office of the UNM Chief Information Officer in order to foster communication and promote collaboration among community members, according to the press release. According to the Office of the UNM CIO’s website, the event will include speaker Eli Dart, a network engineer from the Energy Sciences Network. Dart has more than 15 years of experience working in fields related to network architecture, according to the ESnet website. He has worked with universities, laboratories and other institutions to promote models for scientific infrastructure.

#Relationship S A weekly column about the modern search for love at UNM.

by Josh Dolin

Someday my prince will come


“Oh my God this hurts,” I said to my friend Scarlett last week. “I don’t think I can go any deeper,” she replied. “Remind me why we’re here again?” The newest guy in my life, Cody, is a dance instructor who specializes in stretching and conditioning. After I met him, I knew there would be no better opportunity to show off my toned legs and check out his abs than by going to his class. So there Scarlett and I were, dripping sweat and whatever dignity we had left, attempting to complete fifth position. “The lengths I go to in order to get a date are unreal,” I said to her afterward. “So what did you think of him?” “He’s nice; he’s just really different,” she said. “But he has a nice body.” Cody and I decided after class that we wanted to see each other again, so he took me geocaching the following day. Geocaching is, essentially, hiking-meetstreasure hunting. You use the mobile app to locate “caches,” which are boxes containing small items. Basically, it’s a very cute date idea that I recommend to everyone. So as Cody and I were walking around the foothills looking for hidden treasure, we had the opportunity to talk. I don’t think I have ever met someone so open and honest before. He told me about his past, which includes promiscuity and drug use, and his current hopes and dreams. I was able to share with him my interests and passions, and he never interrupted or acted disinterested. When looking for a “prince,” I think open communication and honesty is the most important aspect I look for.

“I know that he just wants blowjobs, but this time I told him that it is not going to happen. I just go over and sleep with him.” ~Ashley Princes come in all shapes and sizes. Lately as I walk around campus I have been noticing how happy people are. And they are happy because no matter who they are, they have found someone who loves to be around them — which is, quite frankly, more than I can say for myself. Now, after an entire year of thinking she would be alone, Collette finally thinks she has found a prince. But is that a good thing? “I need your help,” she said. “This guy, Patrick, just friend requested me on Facebook and then asked to meet up for coffee, so we did. And he is a perfect match for me. We have the same political views, goals, and he’s really ambitious.” “Is there anything wrong with him?” I asked. “Well, so the day after coffee Patrick sent

me a good morning text with a sun emoji, and right there I was like, ‘Ok, this is too much for me, I don’t need to get good morning texts.’ Then we met for beers that night and afterward he invited me to go to his parents’ house.” “He invited you to go meet his parents after a second date? And you met him the day before!?” I asked. “Yes!” Collette said. “I didn’t know what to say, so I went with him and met his entire family. They showed me pictures of him, asked how we met and welcomed me to the family. I panicked!” “He introduced you to his family after he met you literally 48 hours prior. He’s crazy,” I said. “What are you going to do with him?” “I don’t know,” she said.” “He won’t stop texting me and I don’t know how to tell him that I’m moving to Seattle in May and don’t really do commitment and relationships. It sucks because he was perfect. I should have never gone to his parents’ house. It was the most awkward experience of my dating life.” “At this rate, a proposal can’t be far away,” I told her. And I will never be able to explain it, but Aurora has always had a natural attraction to men who sell organic food. Maybe it’s their dreamy eyes or maybe it’s their farm-fresh products, but she can never come out of Whole Foods without a new love interest. “Today at the farmers’ market I was not wearing any makeup and the guy there was either checking me out or hardcore judging me,” Aurora said. “I’m not sure which it was, but I will take it as a win!” Aurora and I have the same prince in mind, and that would be Prince Phillip from Sleeping Beauty. But more than anything else, Aurora

looks for similar interests and passions in a man — and, of course, a sense of humor. And Ashley’s prince has to wait for marriage to have sex, which is why no one understands why she is seeing Eric again. “I know that he just wants blowjobs,” Ashley said. “But this time I told him that it is not going to happen. I just go over and sleep with him.” “So you are basically using him as a body to sleep with?” I asked. “Yeah, pretty much,” she said. “That is the part I missed most about him. I just like to have a big man to sleep next to.” So Ashley has been spending most nights of the week with Eric again and it most likely will not end well. But now I have to figure out if Cody could be my prince. I live in a world of fantasy and magic, and so I dream of true romance from a boyfriend. And that is the biggest problem with Tinder. It’s a lot of fun to match and chat with new people, but in the end, it’s not how I want to meet my prince. “Can you imagine telling the story of how you met to your children?” I said to the girls last week. “‘Well, your daddy looked super hot in his picture so I swiped right and he didn’t ask to fuck immediately so the rest is history.’” And that is one of the best parts about Cody — I met him the old-fashioned way. He came up to me, we flirted, he asked for my number and then we spent time together. He is polite, caring, honest and handsome. I think that fits the description of any Disney prince, right? In the world of dating, we are all looking for a prince. The hard part is finding out which ones are the real deal and which ones just want blowjobs. I do believe in happily ever after and

Boston Marathon organizers confident of safe race by Bob Salsberg Associated Press

BOSTON — The arrest of a man with a rice cooker in his backpack near the Boston Marathon finish line led police to step up patrols Wednesday, while organizers sought to assure the city and runners of a safe race next week. The actions of the man, whose mother said he has a mental disorder, rattled nerves as Boston prepared for the annual race, but authorities said they did not consider it a security breach. Officials also expressed confidence in heightened security measures for Monday’s event while acknowledging the challenge of protecting an estimated 1 million spectators and 36,000 runners across 26.2 miles and eight Massachusetts communities. Security plans include thousands of uniformed police, hundreds of plainclothes officers and about 100 strategically positioned video cameras to monitor the crowds. Police also strongly discouraged spectators from bringing backpacks. “I believe this will be the safest place on the planet on April 21,” said Dave McGillivray, the long-time race director for the Boston Athletic Association.

Boston police detonated the suspicious backpack Tuesday night, along with a second backpack that was later found to have been left behind by a journalist covering the day’s remembrances, Police Commissioner William Evans said. Neither bag was determined to have explosives. The 25-year-old suspect, Kevin Edson, was arraigned Wednesday on several charges including threatening battery and possession of a hoax

Gov. Susana Martinez’s PAC raises $210K The Associated Press SANTA FE — Republican Gov. Susana Martinez’s political action committee has raised about $210,800 in the past six months. According to the latest


companies based in Artesia. Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, who owns a house in Taos, contributed $10,400. Martinez uses the committee to help influence state and local

races, including for the Legislature. The PAC contributed $500 each to two House Republican incumbents. The PAC is separate from the governor’s re-election campaign. House Speaker Ken Martinez’s

PAC raised about $68,700, and had cash-on-hand of $114,000. The Democratic legislative leader donated $500 each to three House Democratic incumbents.

Sanchez said the Martinez did use foul language, but she will continue her work as governor. “Yes, the Governor used salty language in a private conversation four years ago with close advisers and will pay the appropriate penalty to the cuss jar,” he said. “Governor Martinez will not be distracted by cheap political attacks and will remain

focused on continuing to move New Mexico forward.” Several organizations and politicians have responded to the Mother Jones article, including the Democratic Party of New Mexico. “The crass, rude and hate filled comments from the Governor, Jay McCleskey and her staff indicate the dislike and contempt they

feel for all New Mexicans and even fellow Republicans,” said DPNM Chairman Sam Bregman in a press release. Democratic Sen. Howie Morales, a candidate in the gubernatorial race, said in a statement that Martinez’s comments about teachers and her comments “criticizing the need for a Commission on the Status of Woman

in New Mexico,” was offensive. “Our Governor has sent a strong message about how she really feels about the people of this State,” Morales said. “We need to stand up and send her a strong message that this is not the kind of ‘leadership’ we need in New Mexico.”

campaign worker — who intervened in the lawsuit. Rogers, who doesn’t represent Jeff, told the justices that the district

court had properly dismissed the election challenge. Jeff needs the signatures of 78 Democratic voters from her district

to qualify as a candidate. Sara Berger, a lawyer for King, said she’s confident that Jeff doesn’t have enough valid signatures because

some of the 91 the lawmaker submitted on nominating petitions are of voters in other districts, the wrong political party or are duplicates.

In other recordings, Martinez and her aides also spoke about other campaign strategies regarding education and Rep. Ben Luján. Martinez also used the word “bitch” in response to someone telling her that someone believed Martinez “wasn’t being straight with her.” Her aides also used words such as “retard” and “fuck.”

The Independent Student Voice of UNM since 1895

Student parents lacking support

Aaron Sweet /@AaronCSweet/ Daily Lobo Single mom and psychology major Justine Parris spends time with her son Beaux at the UNM duck pond after Parris’ classes on Wednesday.

by Jyllian Roach @Jyllian_R Justine Parris keeps a mental list of scholarships for which she qualifies. She tells herself she’ll fill out the applications — that she needs to so she can limit how much more her student debt of $32,000 grows — but she can’t find the time. As a junior psychology major and a single mom of a 2-year-old, every second in Parris’ day is dedicated to spending time with her son, doing homework or finding ways to stretch her limited means. “It’s exhausting,” she said. “It’s madness.” Parris is not alone, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. In its “Digest of Education Statistics” report, the center estimates that at least 28 percent of undergraduate students have at least one child. Student parents have become common on college campuses across the nation lately, but it seems UNM has not adjusted for this trend. There are some resources available to student parents on campus, such as nursing stations for breastfeeding mothers, but they are few and difficult to find, said Summer Little, director of the UNM Women’s Resource Center. “There may be different supports in different places; what there isn’t is a cohesive program or set of things for students who are parents,” she said.

“I don’t think it’s coordinated and I don’t think it’s enough.” Student parents are becoming the new normal on college campuses, and more attention should be given to the needs of this overlooked group, she said, and the best solution would be a student parent program or resource center to help students with their very real and time-consuming issues. Student parent resource centers have been popping up on campuses around the country in the last few years. Several colleges, like the University of Michigan, Portland State University, University of CaliforniaSanta Barbara, University of Minnesota and Washington State University boast on their websites that they offer integrated services to help students with children manage their academic and family lives through advocacy, workshops and other parent-focused services. No institution of higher education in New Mexico offers a resource aimed at helping student parents. Mike Smith, a graduate student in creative writing and single dad, said he averages about two hours of sleep each night, and divides the other 22 hours among his schoolwork, his job and his four children. “I’ve had just ridiculous writing hours for almost a decade now,” he said. “It’s like, ‘OK, it’s 10 at night, the kids are asleep, I’m completely spent and have no ability to move. I guess I’ll sit down and write until

4 a.m. because half this stuff is due tomorrow.’” For seven years Smith has accumulated a mountain of student loan debt. He will finally graduate at the end of the spring semester, but he wishes UNM had offered more support for student parents. “I’d just like to worry about all this stuff less,” he said. “Any programs that can be put in place to make that happen would be awesome.” According to the Institute for Women’s Policy Research in Washington D.C., student single parents often face the greatest financial needs, but there are few options beyond the Pell grants and student loans to meet them. Single parent students have an annual unmet need of $5,500 beyond what student aid offers, according to the institute’s website. The average loan debt for single parents in 2008 was $29,000 and $24,000 for married student parents, according to the site. For students like Smith, financial aid simply may not be offered at all. Smith said he sees his children, ages two to eight, every day, but because their mother receives state benefits for them, he does not qualify as a parent in the eyes of the federal government. “I have never been able to get financial aid to acknowledge that I have children. They’d give me paperwork to fill out and they either lose it or tell me it was the wrong stuff,” he said. “I get the same financial aid as

someone with no kids.” Parris said her son’s father is exempt from paying child support because he is disabled and receives social security benefits, but that she does qualify for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Medicaid and daycare assistance through the state. These things, she said, are the linchpin holding everything together. “I couldn’t go to school, I couldn’t pay my bills without that help,” she said. This help comes at a high cost to her time, however. At the end of every semester Parris must go to the

Human Services Department of New Mexico to renew her SNAP, TANF and Medicaid benefits, and then go to the Children, Youth and Families Department to renew her daycare assistance. It takes a total of eight hours, she said. Married students with children have a tough time financially, as well. Andy Lyman, a senior journalism major, is a full-time student with a 3-year-old and a 13-month-old. He said his wife’s income puts them above the federal poverty line for a family of four, but without his added income from student loans, his family’s life would be different. “I think probably we wouldn’t be

living the lifestyle we have now without the student loans. We would have to adjust our housing situation,” he said. “I don’t think our kids would be in the daycare they’re in without them.” He said that those student loans are the only support he gets from UNM, and that occasional leniency from teachers is the only assistance he gets as a student parent. “There’s not really any support as far as being what they call a ‘non-traditional student,’” he said. Mikki Browne said she began attending Central New Mexico Community College in 2009 and hoped to transfer into UNM’s journalism program. During her first semester, she said, she attended classes three days a week, worked two days at a local clothing store, raised her two special-needs children, and did all of it with the help of Albuquerque’s bus system. “I didn’t have time,” she said. “I was living on coffee and getting two to three hours of sleep a night, if I was lucky.” She said she received SNAP and TANF benefits, but did not qualify for daycare assistance because she was not receiving child support from her children’s father. According to CYFD’s parent guidelines, single parents must show proof of child support payments, proof of an open case with New Mexico’s Child Support Enforcement Division or proof that the absent parent was allowed by a judge to not pay child support. After her first semester at CNM, Browne said, the unreliable schedule of the bus system and lack of stable child care for her children made it impossible to continue school. “My teachers were very supportive, but they had a protocol to follow,” she said. “I almost never got my homework done on time.” Two years later, she tried again at the for-profit Carrington College, hoping that its shorter semesters might make it easier for her to earn a degree, she said. After the first semester, Browne said, she had to drop out for the same reasons. She said a transportation system dedicated to students would have allowed her to have a more flexible class schedule

that would have made childcare easier, but because she was unable to get to evening classes she often found it hard to find a sitter for her children. Now, she said, she’s in default on $25,000 worth of student loans and cannot continue her educational goals until she can pay for college out of pocket. As an institution, UNM offers two things to students with children: a campus day care and family housing. According to its website, the UNM Children’s Campus offers daycare services to students on a sliding scale, but has a wait list of two years. UNM Student Family Housing offers 200 apartments with one, two or three bedrooms that range from $634 to $844 per month. These units are on a waiting list and usually become available near the beginning of each semester, according to the website. Back at the Women’s Resource Center, Little said the current structure geared toward students who are young and single needs to change to better fit the changing student body. She said she hopes to have better supports created for student parents within the next two years. “This is an area that has to be attended to — has to be,” she said. “If we’re talking about student success, and we want to increase our graduation rates and we want to increase our retention and make sure all of our population has access to higher education, we have to fill in this gap. We’ve got to figure it out.” Those supports won’t arrive before Parris graduates with her bachelor’s degree, but she said she hopes there are more opportunities when she is ready to attend graduate school. Until then, she said she will continue to make it work, because she believes her education is not just important to her, but to her son as well. “I want to do it so I can better my life and give my son a better future,” she said. “I want to show my son you can do anything when you put your mind to it.”

restaurant review

New Mexico Daily Lobo

Wok over to Kai’s for tasty, affordable Chinese Restaurant offers a variety of delicous dishes sure to please everyone’s tastes

by Steve “Mo” Fye @UncaMo Kai’s Chinese Restaurant isn’t much to look at. It doesn’t have fancy tables or impressive décor. That’s not why people go to a place like Kai’s, though. People go to Kai’s because, for the last decade or so, the restaurant has been serving terrific food at even better prices. On a weekday around noon, the place is packed. Students and others from the UNM community fill the vinyl chairs and chow down on some of the best food you can get for the price. The semi-open kitchen allows wonderful aromas to fill the dining area, and it can be fun to watch the cooks dashing back and forth among the huge commercial woks — as long as nobody blocks the equally busy wait staff shooting from table to table during the lunch rush. The lunch menu starts at $4.95 and tops out at $6.25. Lunches come with a generous entrée, egg drop soup, an egg roll and steamed or fried rice. Spend the extra 50 cents to get the hot and sour soup. It is a nice mix of pungency and spice, with tofu, sliced mushrooms and a thick, savory stock. Dip an egg roll in the soup for a real treat. The entrées available are a nice mix of traditional Asian food and Americanized dishes familiar to New Mexicans.

A stand-out dish is the shrimp with garlic sauce. A dark, spicy sauce coats sliced carrots, bok choy and zucchini. Kai’s doesn’t skimp on the shrimp, either. The jalapeno chicken is wonderful, as well. Spicy peppers and tender chicken in a light sauce make for a great lunch. For the veggie-inclined, Kai’s has a mixed vegetable dish that is sure to please as well as half a dozen tofu entrées, from simple to complex, and a choice of mild or spicy. The Kung-Pao tofu will please even dedicated carnivores. In the seven or more years I’ve been eating there — sometimes twice a week — I’ve never been disappointed. Well, except when arriving too late in the lunch rush to be seated in time to get back to work or class. Even so, the staff is quick and efficient, if sometimes brusque. It is easier to get a table at dinner time, when the place slows down a little. The service during dinner hours is much less rushed, and the expanded menu lends itself to a more relaxed eating experience. All the lunch special entrees are available, in larger portions for a bit more money, but try to spring for something off the Chef ’s Specialties section, which is still very reasonable. The Kung Pao scallops (at $12.95, the priciest dish on the menu) are tender and nicely spiced. The triple delight with garlic

sauce ($10.95) is a great mix of shrimp, chicken, beef and vegetables in the same dark, spicy and savory sauce as the lunch special. Fans of egg foo young will be pleased at the variety available. Pork, beef, chicken, vegetable, shrimp or combination; no matter what you like, there’s a dish that will please. Unlike so many versions of the omelet-like dish, Kai’s egg foo young is light and tender, not leathery and dense. The dinner menu offers a dozen or so appetizers, most of which are excellent. The deep-fried garlic shrimp are amazing, and it can be tempting to just get a few orders. The Chinese steamed pork buns are worthy of a Dim Sum cart anywhere. The only complaint I’ve ever had was about the chicken skewers and the fried chicken wings, both of which were a bit tough and dry. So skip those and try the cold sesame noodles or the delicious pot stickers. Kai’s turns up in a search for restaurants that deliver in the UNM area, but there is no delivery. Call ahead for pickup, and the food will be ready before you know it. Hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays and noon to 9 p.m. on Saturdays. Like too many Asian restaurants in Albuquerque, Kai’s is closed on Sundays. Kai’s is located at 138 Harvard Drive SE. For more information, visit or call 266-8388.

Gold House offers inviting venue for local musicans Erika Eddy @erika_eddy The residence of 1817 Gold Avenue, just east of University Boulevard, is more than just a home: it’s a music venue that hosts live performances of local and touring artists. Gold House is primarily a collaborative artist living space, said Tyson Ryder, a senior creative writing major. In the eight years since it began, Gold House has showcased a variety of musicians from all genres, he said.

Ryder, who also lives at Gold House, said the goal of the venue is to support and cultivate interest in the local independent arts scene. “The house fills an essential niche for someone who wants to go to UNM and be a part of a community, but not necessarily a fraternity,” he said. “This is a non-hierarchical space that focuses on artistic creation.” Senior Brandon Straus said he has attended shows at Gold House several times. He said he likes the venue because of its community vibe. “There’s no barrier to it; it’s

not secretive,” he said. “It’s very intimate, not like a show at a large venue.” Danny Crouch, philosophy alumnus and musician, said he has played at Gold House dozens of times. He said the location is all-inclusive, creating a welcoming atmosphere. “There’s definitely a very large community of people who frequent these DIY (do-it-yourself ) venues,” he said. “If people want to come, they can come.” Tucker Yates said he has been booking shows at Gold House for the last eight months. He has helped give the venue the repu-

tation of consistently hosting different bands, which is part of the reason they won the Weekly Alibi’s Best of Burque for Best Underground Concert Venue, he said. “We don’t want to be just a big party house. We want to be a part of the greater community that supports us, and we try to emulate it and support other artistic efforts,” Yates said. Straus said part of the venue’s appeal is its intimate settings for performances, in the house’s living room or basement. “It’s not like a show at a large venue,” he said. “It’s a hybrid be-

tween an intimate party and a performance.” Yates said he remembers one particular night showcasing very different music. “This band had tacked on to a folk show and they had speakers stacked to the ceiling,” he said. “The drummer would stand up and just throw himself down on his drums — it was the loudest thing I had ever heard. Right after that, this solo performer, this delicate like flower of a girl, is singing her love songs.” As the venue came by more

ShowHow to cornrow hair



by Mariam Ajala @m_a_reports Cornrow braids are one of the oldest hairstyles, worn predominantly in African cultures dating as far back as 3500 BCE, and are still worn today in many different styles by many cultures across the world. Cornrows are the result of weaving techniques by which the hair is braided against the scalp. The process results in a neat, low-maintenance hairstyle that can be worn for up to a month without becoming messy. Hairstylist Tiffany Clash demonstrates how a simple cornrow can be done by just about anyone. You will need: a tail comb, hair moisturizer (for course, tender hair types), hair of at least 4 inches in length, a hair tie and elastic bands.

Step 1: Comb and moisturize

hair well to prevent pain and pulling on the scalp.

Step 2: Using the tail of the comb, part a straight line going from the front to the back of the head.

Step 3: Use a hair tie to keep remaining hair away from the braid.

Step 4: At the top of the part,

separate three small sections as if doing a normal braid.

Step 5: Begin intertwining the three sections as normal.

Step 6:

Loosen a small section of hair from the hair tie and add it into the braid. Continue this down the braid and tie an elastic band at the bottom.

Step 7: Repeat steps 1 through

Siblings of Run Boy Run carry the family torch by William Aranda @_WilliamAranda For siblings Matt and Grace Rolland, music had been a part of their family long before they were born. As fiddler and cellist, respectively, for the Tucson-based band “Run Boy Run,” the two said they are the latest in a long line of respected musicians. Their grandfather, Paul Rolland, created the Rolland teaching method, which Matt said has been the family legacy.

Gold House

Band currently on tour won Bluegrass competition in 2011

“Our grandfather pioneered the pedagogy method of teaching stringed instruments that is still taught in most education programs for music teachers,” he said. The Rolland Method teaches students to play stringed instruments by focusing on the movement and balance of both the player and the strings. Both siblings were taught how to play various instruments at a young age as a result of their parents’ and grandparents’ various musical backgrounds. “I’m a cellist and I grew up

playing classical music,” Grace said. “Both of our parents are musicians, so we learned music through the family band context and through orchestras.” Matt and Grace said their parents have supported their musical endeavors since the siblings were young. “Our parents were our biggest influences early on, surrounding us with music, and we had a family band,” Matt said. “It was really great to grow up with that music, hearing it all the time. It just soaks into your blood.” The rest of the group includes

he said. “That would be the reason they would stop in Albuquerque.” If a band, of their own volition, is preparing to do an album release, Gold House Records will help produce it and hold a show for them, Yates said. The band can then sell their hard copies of the album for a profit.

“We began thinking of other ways to support this whole scene and get juices flowing,” he said. “Basically (we are) just putting in any effort we can to help.” Gold House’s events and video sessions can be found on their Facebook page, goldhousenm.

sisters Bekah and Jen Sandoval on fiddle and mandolin, and Jesse Allen on bass. While all of the members share vocals, Matt and the Sandoval sisters formed the band while attending the University of Arizona. Two years after forming, “Run Boy Run” performed at and won the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Contest in June of 2011, which helped the band get more exposure. “When we were named as the winners, it was one of the biggest thrills of all of our lives.” Matt said. “It was really a huge

honor, it helped us take our band and our name to another level.” “Run Boy Run” has released one E.P., a two-song single and a full-length album titled “So Sang The Whippoorwill,” which was released March last year. “This has been a really good national tour,” Matt said, “we hit some of the same cities as our last national tour, so we saw familiar faces and recognized some streets.” To listen to “Run Boy Run,” visit

Curandera ritual plants flourish at ABQ BioPark by Stephen Montoya @StephenMontoya9

The seeds of an ancient tradition are sprouting at the Albuquerque Botanic Garden and BioPark. Out of respect for the mythical practice of curanderismo, the BioPark has devoted an entire section of its grounds to growing the plants that have been vital to this ritual of natural healing. Maria Thomas, an assistant curator at the BioPark, said she wants to give a strong representation of the native plants that would have been used in the traditional healing practices of a curandera. The BioPark has put together a collection of healing herbs from all over the world, she said. Larger placards indicate the plants that have to do with native New Mexican healing, while smaller placards are placed on plants that are used for healing in general. “It’s about slowing down and understanding the plants and how they grow,” Thomas said. Many curanderas — a Spanish term for folk healers — have visited the garden to show their support and to instruct the public on how to look for these healing plants in the wild, she said. “One curandera talked about having these conversations with the plants, and that is how you know what their properties are — because they tell you,” Thomas said. “When you say that outright, people kind of look at you funny.” The curandera garden was commissioned in 1998 and has been well received by healers and

the public, she said. “The energy of the plants is very healing down here, and so people will stay and enjoy the tranquility,” Thomas said. She added that people who view holistic healing and the premise of this garden as witchcraft are not taking time to understand the tradition. “There is no witchcraft voodoo element at all,” Thomas said. “It’s just that misconception that comes from lack of education about what it is that a curandera does.” Rudoflo Anaya, author of “Bless Me Ultima,” is no stranger to the misinterpretation of this southwestern tradition. “Bless Me Ultima’s” plot is centered on curanderismo, and it is one of the most challenged books in the U.S. according to The book elicits many complaints, the most frequent of which regard religion: critics have cited the book as being irreverent, anti-Catholic or pagan in nature. Anaya said the tradition of curanderismo in the Southwest has nothing to do with the occult, or even with religion. “Before doctors came to New Mexico all families here had someone in the family — a mother who took care of the medical problems of the people in the community, both physical and mental problems,” Anaya said. There is a difference between what a doctor can do and what a practiced curandera can do, he said. “The doctor may not be into all the herbal remedies that have been passed down through the

ages,” Anaya said. “The doctor probably doesn’t use prayer, which is very important in the role of the curandera.” Anaya said he thinks it ridiculous that people call the practice witchcraft. “The curandera helping the community is as old as mankind,” he said. “There have always been healers in every culture of the world, they’ve been there and I’m glad to say they still are.” Diane Camillo, a practicing curandera, said she has always

felt an innate capacity for healing. In 1998 she was diagnosed with melanoma and doctors suggested amputating her arm as a preventative measure, she said. “That was certainly not something I wanted to participate in, and so for four months I completely immersed myself in a holistic treatment that was specifically for skin cancer, and I managed to heal myself,” Camillo said. Camillo is known mostly for practicing ‘limpia,’ which means

cleaning, she said. “I was born into this,” she said. “My grandmother was a curandera and there were many of us children with her when we were young, and any time we had an illness she always healed us.” The curandera garden at the BioPark has tremendous value in its aesthetics, its fragrance, and the energy of the living plants, she said. “This garden provides recognition of how plants provide beauty and nurturing,” Camillo said.
