NEWS Local contractor charged with beating, rape By Babette Herrmann Sun Editor

R

ick George, a contractor for Bonaguidi Construction, w a s a r r e s t e d for a l lege d ly r a pi n g a lo c a l woman and for also aggravated battery with the intent to commit a felony. McKinley County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Arnold Noriega was called to TravelCenters of America Motel on Aug. 29 and arrived to a frantic and

violent scene. For starters, he was greeted by Lucita James, who had been drinking, and told him, “you guys are too late.” Noriega went up to Room 115, where he found George lying face down on the floor with a white shir t and no clothing on from the waist down. His face was bloody and he was being detained by motel guest Milton Wood and motel manager Leonard Tso. George was handcuffed and placed in Noriega’s vehicle.

The victim refused to speak to any male officers, but later told a female officer that she had been raped. Wood, who heard screams and cursing, reportedly told Noriega that when he first opened the door to Room 115 he witnessed Rick yelling at the victim: “I am going to kill you tonight is your night to die b-tch.” Wood’s w i fe, a reg i s tered nurse, rendered aid to

the victim until paramedics arrived. George made h is f i r st appearance in Magistrate Court on Aug. 31 and entered no plea at this time. His next cour t date, a preliminar y examination, is scheduled for 8:30 am on Sept. 9 in Judge April J. Silversmith’s chambers.

Duran faces pressure to resign post FACES 64 COUNTS OF CRIMINAL CHARGES

By Joey Peters NM Political Report

S

ANTA FE –With calls for Secretary of State Dianna Duran to resign growing by the day, the talk is already starting to shift to who will next fill one of the most important elected statewide offices.n Duran is facing 64 counts of criminal charges filed last week by Attorney General Hector Balderas for using campaign money for personal use. On Wednesday night, Speaker of the House Don Tripp, R-Socorro, said the State House members will explore impeachment proceedings even as many high-profile state Republicans, including Gov. Susana Martinez, are seemingly distancing themselves from Duran. New Mexico’s two la rgest newspaper s

a lso urged Dura n to resign in editorials this week. If Duran resigns or is impeached by the state Legislature, Martinez will have to appoint someone to fill the role. That role could go to Mary Quintana, who currently serves as Duran’s deputy secretary of state.

something quick, because that position is ver y important for all of us,” Carabajal said. She also said that while we’re currently in an off-election year, county clerk offices will start working closely w ith the Secreta r y of State’s Office next January in preparation for that year’s primary and general elections. Duran’s current term runs through 2018, but a removal from office and replacement chosen by Martinez, depending on the timing, could kick off an accelerated election for the post during the 2016 general elections—a full two years ahead of schedule.

SOME REPUBLICANS RUMORED O t her Republ ic a n n a m e s fo r p o s s i ble replacements are being kicked around by politicos, though they admit it is all speculation at this point. They are state Rep. Kelly Fajardo of Belen, Los Alamos County Clerk Sharon Stover, Valencia Cou nt y Clerk Peg g y Carabajal and former Albuquerque City Clerk Amy Bailey. While Fajardo, Stover

New Mexico Secretary of State Dianna Duran

and Bailey didn’t return voicemails from New Mexico Political Report left Tuesday afternoon, Carabajal spoke with us. Carabajal said she hadn’t heard of her name coming up as a possible

appointee and that she would “really have to look into that” if it did. She added that her office was “shocked and saddened” to hear about the charges against Duran. “I hope they do

WEEKLY DWI REPORT By Babette Herrmann Pau l T homp s on , 56 , Prewitt, NM Aug. 29, 9:30 pm Felony DWI, 4th Offense This intoxicated d r iver thought he could slide past the DWI checkpoint, but Gallup Police Department Officer Steven Peshlakai wasn’t about to let that happen. When he pulled Thompson over at Aztec Laundry Mat, he tried to hide behind the light pole, which obviously didn’t help him any. He smelled of alcohol and failed the field sobriety tests. He submitted two blood alcohol breath tests, which revealed a 0.18/0.17. A fourth DWI resulted in the felony charge.

Francina A. Smith, 39, Gallup, NM Aug. 23, 9 pm DWI, 3rd Offense S m i t h r a cke d u p a slew of other cha rges, in addition to receiving a DWI. S he r a m me d a nother vehicle in her GMC Yukon and took off from the scene all while her 6-year-old son sat in the back seat, which earned her the charge of “abandonment or abuse of a child.” It was her son that gave her up: “Ofc. Peshlakai had spoken to Francina’s son … who advised him that his mother was driving fast and had crashed into another vehicle,” according to reporting Officer Chad Troncoso’s report. The Yukon had a “fictitious”

license plate, and Troncoso’s report states that there was empty bottle of “Importer’s Vodka” in the front seat of vehicle. She blew a BAC of .31 – twice. Smith also had outstanding warrants.. B a r t o n Ya z z i e , 5 3 , Galllup, NM Aug. 24, 7:19 pm Any plans to make a grand escape from a d r u nken or drugged hit and r un failed for Yazzie. GPD Sgt. Ben ny Ga on a found the driver and his white pickup truck parked at 1105 Nevada Circle. From there, it was easy to match the damages sustained to both vehicles and arrest Yazzie for his hit and run, careless driving and DWI. L i n d a Jo h n s o n , 4 4 , Thoreau, NM

Aug. 4, 11:29 pm DWI, 2nd Offense T h i s DW I occurred about a mont h a go, but Johnson still earns a mugshot a nd repor t i n the Gallup Sun. Johnson blew a 0.15 twice and was also charged for driving with an open container. R ex a n n a W i l l ie, 3 0, Gallup, NM Aug. 26, 8:40 pm Willie’s erratic driving prompted GPD Officer Norman Bowman to pull her vehicle over on the 600 block of Boardman Drive. She admitted to taking “a couple of shots of Yukon Jack” several hours before being pulled over. She told Bowman she just broke up with her boyfriend and “was trying not to think about it,” according to the report. She failed her field sobriety tests and blew a BAC of 0.23 and 0.22.

Ja me s on B a ker, 3 6 , Albuquerque, NM Aug. 29, 8:28 pm DWI, 2nd Offense Another case of erratic driving, and in this case, downright dangerous driving landed Baker in jail along with his DWI. On top of that, he ignored deputies efforts to pull him over. When Baker did finally pull over, McKinley County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Johnson Lee could smell alcohol wafting from the vehicle. He refused to take the BAC breath test, which earned him an extra charge. To d d D e n n i s on , 2 3, Tohlakai, NM Aug. 27, 11:50 pm A n ex pi red registration tag, along with some erratic driving prompted MCSO Deputy Tammy Houghtaling to pull Dennison over. It was a routine DWI arrest. Dennison blew a BAC of 0.11 twice.

Begaye updates Sen. Udall on San Juan River contamination ASKS FOR CONTINUED SUPPORT FROM BIA

Staff Report

S

H IPROCK—Nava jo Nation P resident Russell Begaye and Vice P resident Jonatha n Nez met with Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.) Sept. 3 and spoke about the aftermath of the Gold King Mine breach that occurred on August 5. Attorney General Ethel Branch, Speaker LoRenzo Bates, Delegates Tom Chee and Amber Crotty, and chapter officials Duane Yazzie and Gilbert Harrison were also in attendance. President Begaye expressed that the immediate concern was the demobilization of water tanks owned by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) Navajo Region. The tanks are in use at affected chapters to provide water for livestock and irrigation. BIA crews and equipment are scheduled to leave the area by Saturday. “We still need the BIA NEWS

support and their water tanks. We are very concerned about the loss of the water tanks, as our canals are still closed. Hence, we have requested FEMA to intervene and help us in our time of crisis,” Begaye said. Upstream, the San Juan River has been reopened for irrigation at Nenanezad, San Juan, Gadii’ahi and Upper Fruitland. Downstream, the river remains closed for both the Hogback and Shiprock chapters. Gaadii’ahi voted to reopen the river for irrigation and currently using electric pumps to draw water into the canal. Senator Udall said that he has placed his field representative, Cal Curley, on the ground working since the mine spill occurred. “We’ve done a number of things: scheduling the hearings and getting Administrator McCarthy out here immediately. She was out here within a week,” Udall said. “The

spiritual and emotional toll is very important. The agencies, instead of being bureaucratic, need to be understanding,” Vice President Nez said there is still no word from the White House since the spill occurred last month. “President Oba ma a nd FEMA need to be more proactive and declare this as a disaster area,” Nez said. “The Navajo Nation should have the affected tribal lands designated as its own EPA region. There would be less confusion this way.”

Begaye will testify and attend several Congressional hearings in Washington, D.C. to

advocate for the Navajo farmers and ranchers impacted by the spill.

OPINIONS

By Joe Schaller

PART 2 IN A SERIES CHAPTER TWO – THOSE DARN TREES ARE OBSTRUCTING THE FOREST COLLECTIV ISM: Collectivism is the subjugation of the individual to a group – whether to a race, class or state does not matter. Man must be chained to collective action and collective thought for the

sake of what is called ‘the common good’. Statism has always been the political corollary of collectivism. ALTRUISM: The foundation of collectivism and statism. The basic principle of altruism is that man has no right to exist for his own sake, that service to others is the only justification of his existence, and that self-sacrifice is his highest moral duty, virtue and value. FAIRNESS: Those who hold political power are authorized to pick winners and losers in the economy, at the expense of the consuming public, the taxpayers, and others who may be adversely impacted but who are ignored in the discussion. BUREAUCRACY: A system of government in which most of the important decisions are made by state officials rather than by elected representatives.

BUREAUCRAT: Forces you to obey his decisions, whether you agree with him or not – and the more advanced the stage of a country’s collectivism, the wider and more discretionary the powers wielded by him. If he makes a mistake, you suffer the consequences; if he fails, he passes the loss on to you, in the form of heavier taxes. A bureaucrat’s success depends on his political pull. PUBLIC or CIVIL SERVANTS: Nice work if you can get it. Public servants are employees of the state protected from the ravages of the commercial world by contracts written by other civil servants and featuring minimal working hours, maximum holidays and generous pensions all at the expense of taxpayers actually producing things in the private sector. In theory the government serves as servants of taxpayers, rather than authoritarian masters. C I T I Z E N A DV I S ORY BOARD: Uses power and influence in shaping policies of local government. Responsibilities i nclude st udy i ng cr it ica l

issues, taking public testimony and performing independent research. The process should be non-biased, avoiding groupthink, and challenging prevailing paradigms. However some of our local boards have engaged primarily in passing on biased information used to promote political causes, and that is the definition of propaganda. CORRUPTION: The misuse of public power by elected politicians or appointed civil servants for private gain. The key word is public. Private sector corruption begins only when it interfaces with the public sector however it is the government which holds the upper hand of power. CONSPI R AC Y: A l mo s t always a misnomer for garden-variety corruption. LAND GRAB: Politically incorrect for ‘land reform’. The forceful or fraudulent acquisition of property by the state in order to expand territorial holdings or broaden power. CENTR A L PL A NNING: Central and urban planning are the guidance of the economy

by direct government control over a large portion of economic activity, as contrasted with allowing markets to serve this purpose. Central planning always fails because it is not about efficiency, it is about the desire to control others. Also, the planning elites don’t have a clue regarding basic economic realities. CRONYISM: The appointment of friends and associates to positions of authority, without proper regard to their qualifications. CRONY CAPITALISM: An oxymoron. Government favoritism is the antithesis of capitalism. The fact that money is involved doesn’t make it capitalism. CORPORATE WELFARE, CRON Y C OR P OR AT I SM AND FASCISM: The contrast to free market capitalism. Corporatism is defined as a partnership between government and established firms characterized by regulatory government agencies that cartelize industries like a gang or syndicate, at the expense of small business. Corporatism is one of the defining economic characteristics of fascism and progressivism, both requiring big powerful government and heavy-handed rulers. It is our current US system. Crony corporatism arises from the need of socialist governments to control the state. This requires businesses to operate closely with the government to achieve the greatest success. LABOR UNION GANGS: Another form of collectivism gone awry. Don’t we teach our children to avoid coercive criminal gangs and to stand up to bullies? MARXISM: The collectivist ideology of force and coercion behind the curtain of political correctness, manipulating the strings of its authoritarian offspring; socialism, communism, statism, fascism and progressivism.

War Hero Diary: Local chronicles time with Miyamura Story and Photos by Ken Riege For the Sun

I

have been so honored to have gotten to spend a lot of time with Mr. Hiroshi “ He r s he y ” M i y a mu r a this year and to have gotten to travel with him to several events. In April, Miyamura invited me to travel with him to Gainesville, TX to the 2015 Medal Of Honor Host City Program event. This small town (who by the way was selected at Rand McNa l ly’s Most Pat r iot ic Small Town in America for 2012/2013, and thanks to a Cha llenge Coin from this town that Miyamua had given me, was the inspiration for me to nominate Gallup in 2013 and lead the charge for our victory) knows how to honor their veterans. It was funny too as I visited with many of the Gainsville locals, who put on this event, told me  they were voting for Gallup because they wanted Miyamura’s town to win. 

Here is a photo of the MOH Recipients I got to meet (and of course travel with) while there. This is such an amazing group of men and had so much fun visiting with them and their families.  The first day was as expected very intimidating for me, but by the third day they were picking on me and giving me a hard time like all veterans like to do.

DVD/Blu-ray Roundup for Sept. 4, 2015

H

oly cow, this week is absolutely packed with new releases to enjoy on Labor Day weekend (or whenever you feel like checking something out)! As mentioned, there are a lot of offerings coming in numerous genres. So if you can’t make it out to the movies this week, be sure to give one of these titles a try!

BIG NEW RELEASES!

7 Minutes - What appears to be a quick, 7 minute heist goes horribly awry in this independent thriller. Not that the perpetrators are criminal masterminds; they’re three teen buddies forced into the job by a psychopathic drug lord. Reviews were weak for this effort. While some appreciated the visual style and editing tricks on display, most found the story cliched and the characters too dim-witted to get behind. Now viewers can make up their own minds. Levin Rambin, Jason Ritter, Luke Mitchell, Zane Holtz and Kris Kristofferson take on the lead roles.

Army of Frankensteins This low-budget horror comedy

12

features a young man who encounters a mad scientist. After a series of experiments, portals to parallel universes are opened, releasing several monsters that go on a rampage during the Civil War. Why not, I suppose? There aren’t any reviews online for the title, but it has played at a few underground film festivals. Notices from screenings haven’t been very strong, but viewer enjoyment may depend on how cheesy you like your B-movie horror. B a c k c o u n t r y - Here’s another little scare flick if the last title didn’t appeal to you. In this “nature gone wild” tale, a couple camping in a remote area of a wilderness park get lost. Soon after, they are threatened by not only a strange loner, but also a determined and hungry black bear. The press was actually quite complimentary to this terror film. They called it well acted and atmospheric; a gritty and simple little effort that is remarkably tense and depicts how quickly things can go south when we’re alone in the elements. It stars Missy Peregrym, Eric Balfour, Jeff Roop and Nicholas Campbell.

Boulevard - In this drama, the late Robin Williams plays an unhappily married family man whose life takes a dramatic turn after an encounter with a male prostitute. Most reviewers were ver y impressed with the actor’s subtle and emotional work in the film. However, half were significantly less taken with the filmmaking skills on display. They felt that the pacing was much too slow and that the story ultimately became predictable. Bob Odenkirk, Kathy Baker and Roberto Aguire are also featured.

Broken Horses - Gosh, it seems nearly impossible to not get oneself on the bad side of a nasty drug kingpin these days. This thriller with Western overtones follows one such man who attempts to pull his troubled cartel henchman brother away from his violent, law-breaking employers. The hero’s plan (which sounds a bit complicated) involves infiltrating the organization. The press panned this effort. They called its intentions noble, but the execution rudimentary and at times unbelievable. Anton Yelchin, Chris Marquette, Vincent D’Onofr io, Ma r ia Valverde, Thomas Jane and Sean Patrick Flanery headline the film. Good Kill - Despite a title suggesting something akin to a Steven Seagal action picture, this drama from director Andrew Niccol (Gattaca) involves an Air Force drone pilot fighting missions from within a control booth on the other side of the world. The film deals with the psychological toll of his work and the strain it etches on family relationships. The movie garnered a majority of positive writeups, with many calling it an engaging and at times chilling character piece. It stars Ethan Hawke, January Jones, Zoe Kravitz and Bruce Greenwood. T he Harvest - This terror feature has a very strong cast that includes Samantha Morton, Michael Shannon and Peter Fonda. Directed by John McNaughton (Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer), the plot follows an orphaned girl who moves in with her grandmother and befriends a small boy at a nearby house. She soon learns a very dark secret about the boy’s parents that threatens her life. While some found the storytelling a bit more low-key than anticipated, critics generally found it all to be a creepy psychological thriller with a standout performance from Morton. Mad Max: Fury Road - One of the best reviewed movies of the year was this post-apocalyptic sequel that continues the adventures of the title character, as well as introducing a dynamic new co-star. As the film begins, the protagonist finds himself the captive of a wasteland emperor. However, when one of his soldiers

chooses to escape with the villain’s harem in tow, Max ends up assisting the group (and regains some semblance of his humanity in the process). Critics called the movie a phenomenally tense and thrilling two-hour chase with groundbreaking stunt-work. Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult star. Paranormal Island - In this low-budget indie horror effort, three college students get a job bartending on an island resort, but run into trouble when they realize that it may be haunted... Yep, it’s a haunted bar movie. There aren’t any reviews available for this one, but you may want a stiff drink beforehand. It features Lance Henriksen and Briana Evigan.

BLASTS FROM THE PAST! Like classic monster movies? Well, Universal is releasing an Abbott and Costello Meet the Monsters Collection on DVD. It’s a price-friendly set featuring four creature features with the comics dating from 1948 to 1955. They include Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, Abbott and Costello Meet the Invisible Man, Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and finally, Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy). Set features a behind the scenes documentary as well as commentaries (presumably from a noted film historian) on two of the films. Warner Bros. have some curious releases coming on DVD from their Warner Archive line. First, there’s the documentary Directed by John Ford (1971), in which Peter Bogdanovich chronicles the famous western filmmaker, including archival interviews

with numerous Hollywood stars. Lady, Let’s Dance! (1944) is a big ice-skating musical that has fallen by the wayside since its release, but it is very well regarded. In fact, the lead roles were played by several professional and Olympic ice-dancers. And the film itself was nominated for two Oscars. On a different tact, you c a n now ow n t he g r it t y Du st i n Hof f m a n / T here s a R u s s el l d r a m a S t r a i g h t Time (1978), about ex-con tormented by a nasty parole officer. Additionally, there’s Wide Sargasso Sea (1993) an Australian production that serves as a prequel to the Charlotte Bronte classic Jane Eyre. It’s about a nobleman who moves to Jamaica and falls for a Creole woman, only to learn that she is slowly losing her mind. Finally, Warner Archive also put out a couple of noteworthy Blu-rays. The Hunger (1983) is a stylish vampire tale from director Tony Scott (Top Gun, True Romance), starring David Bowie, Susan Sarandon a nd Ca t her i ne Deneu ve. Finally, The World According to Garp (1982) is a quirky comedy/drama starring Robin Williams as the title character. The film follows the title writer from his birth and through the trails and tribulations of his entire lifespan (many of which involve his mother). It was nominated for two Academy Awards.

SPORTS 360 Real Coaches Make a Difference By Tom Hartsock Sun Correspondent

T

here are those in the world of athletics who believe in the axiom of players mak ing the difference in the outcome of any sporting endeavor, but there is the opposite belief as well. Real coaches – the one we don’t often hear about because of our desire to elevate one individual over another – do and will make a difference. When Miyamura became the second public high school in Gallup, one of the most offensive remarks overheard – aside from the downward change in classification size, based on student population – was that the new school was going to have all the best athletes. This outright falsification was not borne out by any real fact – Gallup’s basketball girls continued to win and the Bengal football and volleyball teams still could not win district – but the talk persisted in several dark little corners. But it is a coach who often determines the outcome of games, and sports writers usually verify this concept by repeating, “The wins are given to the players, while a coach takes responsibility for the losses.” Back in the days of using rocks for baseballs and tree branches for bats, there was a

team in the Gallup Babe Ruth League called the Sportsmen, and one year they were truly awful. The first half of the season was a fiasco, 0-8, and the coach quit after a final thrashing in mid-season. The sponsor stepped in to coach the rest of the summer, and with only one arm to make his point, this coach led, guided, cajoled, threatened and turned his players into a team. The second half was a complete turnaround for the players, 8-0 and put them in a position to vie for the league championship. The story did not end there, but perhaps it should have since the Sportsmen were eliminated in the final by a much better-seasoned team, 2-1. The season-ending loss was sad, and taught most of us – wrongly, it seems in retrospect – that having a better group of athletes was more important than effort and teamwork. But the game could have gone either way, and really proved the importance of a real coach. I know it was for me! And I will never forget the lessons taught us by coach Ferguson. A real coach is one who works with the players on the team and utilizes them in such a way that showcases their talents and covers up their faults as much as possible. If those talents need assistance, other players need to help out when and if they can. It is a TEAM

that real coaches develop. Often repeated but too seldom accomplished is the adage, “There is no I in team.” I n yout h s por t s , r e a l coaches are seldom seen or witnessed for several reasons: parent-coaches; other limitations that require teams to “fill” out a roster - sometimes mixing genders; age-driven divisions; replacements not up to the original caliber; family vacations and absences; and a lack of practice time because of the coach’s regular job requirements. Very few coaches at this level are found willing to put in the time and energy required to really TEACH the youngsters the intricacies of the game, or to analyze what each player does best. Instead, they focus

832 N US Hwy 491 Gallup, NM 87301 (505) 863-8049

on the negatives, and the less athletic players soon reach the obvious conclusion – they are simply taking up space on the roster. Only soccer has a program to develop coaches of a better quality, and even then there are huge holes to fill in that training. Eventually, the players come to the high school level where another factor presents a barrier, grades. Without the minimum GPA required by NMAA or other sports association,

players soon find themselves ineligible. In some respects this requirement makes coaches jobs harder, but it is necessary since education rightly insists that students learn, at least to a minimum amount. Real coaches coach! They do not just walk the halls of school looking for the biggest, strongest, fastest or quickest players, though that is also part of their job. The best ones also TEACH! It is the teaching where the differences are made.
