NEWS, AUGUST 29: “LEAVE THE DRIVING”
LET HIM KNOW Folks seem to not remember that after Greyhound closed its station on St. Michael’s Drive, it stopped at the Giant Station on St. Francis and Sawmill. That is a much more convenient location for Santa Feans than Eldorado, and is actually closer to I-25. The Route 6 bus line goes there every day except Sunday. Someone needs to inform Greyhound Corporate Regional Manager Ed van Heel of this.
PELICAN LEE SANTA FE
It’s interesting Santa Fe is called “a world class city” but doesn’t have an inter-state bus station or cab service. Many people refer to Uber or Lyft as hitchhiking. I’ve used cross-country buses in Brazil and Turkey. Everything from the bus stations to the buses were far superior than here. Try getting out of Santa Fe on a Sunday afternoon when you don’t have a car.

“WAS DEBBIE RIGHT?”
TIME HAS TOLD Debbie has [been] proven even more right today than she was 24 years ago. I worked for Mayor Jaramillo at City Hall ... writing documents for public understanding of her initiatives. I found her forthright, an informed and energetic visionary, [and] honestly and passionately devoted to her causes. Many of us continue to appreciate what she accomplished in a short time for real down-home people. Especially now, it is clear that Debbie’s ideas, actions and passionate voice were right on the spot. She was true to the hearts of Santa Fe’s people. While not a native, I’ve been a Santa Fean for some 50 years. Count me in as one of those true hearts. Obvious empty spaces in our Mayor Portraits Wall on the ground floor at City Hall have annoyed me for years. If the current powers in city government don’t have the moxie to restore Mayor Jaramillo’s photograph where it belongs, I hereby volunteer my hands. The time is now.

THEM’S FIGHTIN’ WORDS I’ve been a fan of Debbie’s since I was a teenager. I’d watch every council meeting because of her. I’m 45 years old now and I still talk about her. She is by far the best mayor we have ever had. The mayors after her and the current mayor don’t and will never hold a candle to her. I always wonder “what would Debbie say” [or] “I wonder what Debbie thinks” about decisions and how our city has fallen apart after she worked her butt off to save it. God bless you, Debbie. They don’t deserve to have your picture hung up in City Hall. You were OUR mayor, not some bought-out, pussyfoot, ass-kissing mayor. Your legacy will forever live on. You are deeply missed. God bless you and your family.

NEWS, SEPTEMBER 5: “FIESTA DIALOGUES”
GRACIAS Thank you to the Reporter for printing the “Fiesta Dialogue” summaries this past week. It’s important to notice how the Hispanic, Native and white communities in Santa Fe gathered to consult and eliminate one of the most blatant expressions of colonialism and racism within the city. They did it peacefully through painful discussions, all with a deep love and care for what keeps Santa Fe special: our many fiestas and tourism. I have been saying for years the dark underbelly of Santa Fe is the incredible suffering resulting from colonialism inflicted on this region. It penetrates all of New Mexico’s Indigenous peoples.

NEWS, SEPTEMBER 5: “BEFORE THERE’S SMOKE”
YIKES It is shocking to me that a project like this would go forward without a full Environmental Impact Study and public comment. Literally it seems to me that the US Forest Service is trying to bulldoze this project through. Cutting 90 percent of the trees is not “thinning”—it is deforestation and has not been proven to be a deterrent to wildfires. These are roadless public lands, and the public has a right to comment and an EIS is necessary.
KAREN WEBER SFREPORTER.COM
Trump-era Forest Service and the Republicans in Congress deny the reality of climate change. In reality, the forests they are destroying are not coming back. Logging and burning are for profit, not forests, and not public safety. The Forest Service keeps repeating the same old lie, stated as fact in this article: “Prescribed burns have become a routine part of the Forest Service’s effort to reverse conditions established by a century of wildfire suppression.” Which century would that be? Fire suppression was practiced from 1935-1972, a period of low wildfire incidence. Since 1972, the FS has been burning and logging forests as fast as it can hand out the lucrative private contracts—and fires have increased dramatically in that period. The FS targets large-diameter trees while repeating the nonsense that they do the opposite. A walk through any forest they have destroyed is evidence enough of that. Sam Hitt is right. “We have to treat these forests with the kind of respect that takes into account that the whole thing is alive and it knows what it’s doing.” And science supports him.

The City Council wonders why Andrea Romero wants to reassign her city contract

he letter Andrea Romero sent to city economic development head Matt Brown contained just two sentences. “I would like to see that the MIX Santa Fe services contract be assigned to the Santa Fe Chamber Opportunities Fund for the fiscal year 2018-19. The Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce has agreed to act as the assigned designee of this contract, and [Andrea Romero Consulting] will be working with it to carry out ongoing duties and responsibilities with the Chamber.” Since 2015, Romero has made about $20,000 a year on a contract to promote the business networking group MIX Santa Fe. It’s focused on fostering connections between Santa Fe entrepreneurs, and Romero’s role has been to plan events, handle social media and create buzz. Now, she apparently wants to continue the work, but with the Chamber of Commerce acting as a buffer between her and the city. Santa Fe’s governing body isn’t sure why. The city manager has already signed off on the transfer, but it’s not clear he had the power to do so. The new city attorney

Instead, she claimed in a text message Vigil Coppler told councilors she had this week that the move had been planned no issue with the city’s investment in for quite some time. She refused to make MIX.
I hate to say it, but I think this is a political move and I don’t like it.
“[However,] I do have a quarrel with us subrogating our responsibilities to another entity that hasn’t gone through the procurement process. [The Chamber of Commerce] hasn’t competed or anything like that,” she said. “I hate to say it, but I think this is a political move and I don’t like it.” Having beaten incumbent state Rep. Carl Trujillo in the June primary, Romero was the presumptive next state representative from House District 46. She faces a write-in challenger, however, in Democrat Heather Nordquist. Romero’s letter to the city asking to reassign the contract was written the week after she beat Trujillo. Though the contract with Romero predates her run for office by years, the city would have a contract with a sitting state representative were she to win. Mayor Alan Webber campaigned for Romero in the primary. He wouldn’t comment for this story. Romero previously held a similar contract that’s made headlines. While acting as executive director for the LANL coalition, she had to reimburse the group for inappropriate spending on baseball tickets in Washington DC, as well as for food and drink purchases both in the capital and back home in Santa Fe. Her contract with the group wasn’t renewed. MIX’s story, and Romero’s, is that the group has been seeking for some time to make itself a nonprofit entity. Co-founder Kate Noble tells SFR that MIX’s board told Romero to ask the city to reassign the contract. The business group has had ties to the Chamber of Commerce since its beginning, and the board has been using the chamber’s 501c3 arm to ensure it can get grants from donors who won’t give to either a public entity like the city or to a for-profit group. “These things are disconnected,” Noble says. “We asked her to because we’ve been thinking about what [MIX’s] future should be.” Noble says she wasn’t aware that Romero’s letter to the city came so soon after her primary victory, but tells SFR that the move away from direct funding by the city isn’t nefarious. Noble has emails between MIX, city staff, and the Chamber of Commerce discussing the switch in May. Brown, the city’s economic development director, confirms that MIX talked with him about making the switch last spring, before Romero won her race. He says that while the city wouldn’t have a say about who the Chamber of Commerce hires to complete the contract, the city will have the same oversight of how its money is spent.

he two men running for county commissioner in District 3 have deep roots in Santa Fe. They’ll not only represent the 50,000 people who live in Edgewood, Stanley, Galisteo, Cerrillos, Madrid and La Cienega, but will have a hand in broader county issues, including the $22 million corrections operating budget that includes the adult jail and juvenile detention facility. Had it not been for Mike Anaya choosing to run as an independent in the general election, this race could have already been over after the June primary, when Rudy Garcia beat out three other men to secure the Democratic nomination. Anaya sat on the five-member commission from 2003 to 2010 as a Democrat, and his brother Robert currently holds the seat as a Democrat. Anaya, 54, frames his choice to run as an independent not as a shrewd political calculation, but a noble act of public service in our polarized times. “I know there’s a lot of finger-pointing and bickering among Democrats and Republicans, and in a way I get tired of hearing it and seeing it,” Anaya says. Enough people were receptive to his independent candidacy that he successfully gathered 220 nominating signatures in order to get on the ballot. Born, raised, and still living in Galisteo, Anaya says his parents taught him and his brother the significance of community involvement. His father, Joe Anaya, installed the village’s first water

Garcia had raised $2,700, including a grand each from the Realtors Association of New Mexico and Sommer Karnes & Associates LLP, a law firm specializing in real estate law. He has taken in $800 since the primary from other private contributors. Garcia sees splits in land jurisdiction among the county and city as a place where the public bodies could coordinate more effectively. “One of the things I would like to see happen is a lot more dialogue between the city, county, and governments, and see how we can all work together for planning and zoning in certain areas,” he says. “The county commission district, [Santa Fe Public Schools], the city … let’s come together, all three, and figure out how we could actually collaborate a lot more.” As a board member at SFPS, Garcia has special insight into some of the rapid growth happening north of La Cienega, particularly in the Las Soleras neighborhood where growing youth populations have helped swell enrollment at Southside schools. The winner of November’s race will also have a say in broader issues on the county budget. Garcia says the county’s juvenile jail on Airport Road needs a “serious look” in light of its consistently high cost and low population of incarcerated youth, and he thinks it’s time for the adult jail to have a “time out” due in part to a lack of adequate medical staff and overdose deaths in recent years. For his part, Anaya admits he “hasn’t given much thought” to the juvenile detention facility on Airport Road, and back in 2003 he was a booster of the adult jail retaining state inmates even after the US Department of Justice discovered serious neglect in how jail staff handled inmates’ health. But now, Anaya says he’s open to looking at both facilities with fresh eyes. “Every time you incarcerate someone, it’s dramatically expensive, it’s a lot of money,” Anaya says. “That would be something I can ask, if I’m elected, to review all of the options we have.” COURTESY MIKE ANAYA
year flood plain and that’s not good.” He goes on to say that “the county is going do everything they can to try to help those people.” Rudy Garcia, who is 47 and lives in La Cienega, is palpably more pissed off that parts of his village remain a mess long after the storm’s passage. He blames inefficiencies at the county, which he says he became familiar with during his 25 years working there (most recently as the leg-
islative liaison project manager; he says he’ll retire after the election no matter the outcome). In general, he thinks things get done too slowly at the county. Garcia’s pitch boils down to “making government friendlier.” He adds, “Why should it take four weeks to get a simple shed permit or garage permit? I want to make it more efficient to help the general public.” One idea Garcia has is to more aggressively use oblique imagery, or aerial imagery captured at an angle of 40 to 45 degrees, across the huge expanse of District 3 to identify dilapidated roads radiating out from Highways 41 and 14. Garcia says the county already has this technology. Like Anaya, Garcia traces his lineage deep in the region’s history—his grandparents still live in the same home off Airport Road they’ve occupied his entire life. Before his triumph in the primary,

It’s Going Down AS YOUTH CRIME AND INCARCERATION RATES PLUMMET IN NEW MEXICO, WHAT’S THE ROLE OF SANTA FE’S JUVIE LOCKUP?
BY AARON CANTÚ a a r o n @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
probation and parole office decides they’re a not risk to the community. Other times, they may be held for days or weeks until going before Judge Mary Marlowe Sommer in the District Court, who could place them on supervised release. It’s more rare to be held longer than that, but it happens. In other words, the Santa Fe County juvenile detention facility is a holding center. If a child’s crimes are severe enough to merit incarceration after they’re adjudicated (basically the youth equivalent of “convicted”), they’ll likely be sent to the Youth Diagnostic & Development Center jail in Albuquerque for about nine months, followed by a short stint at a residential treatment facility meant to re-integrate them into society.
f you attended a public school anywhere in the United States, and if you’ve also seen the inside of a jail, you may have noticed similarities: The cinder block walls, the harsh fluorescent lighting overhead, an air conditioner with the temperature set uncomfortably low and the vaguely bread-like smells of taxpayer-purchased cafeteria food. At the Santa Fe County Youth Development Program on Airport Road—euphemistically rebranded by the private prison company that briefly operated it from 1998 to 2003 after it transitioned from a joint adult jail to a juvenile-only detention center—the connection
between school and jail is more on the nose. During the week, the children incarcerated here attend classes for a few hours a day led by teachers employed by Santa Fe Public Schools. Their stays in lockup are usually less than 30 days, and often far shorter; too little time for courses to count for credit. It can happen, though, if they stay a while. But they’re not supposed to be here that long, because the Santa Fe facility typically holds teens only during pre-adjudication—before they see a judge. They might end up here for just a few hours after catching charges such as shoplifting, drug possession or damaging property, if an evaluator from the Children, Youth and Families Department-administered
The county’s juvenile detention center on Airport Road got a new name in the late 1990s.
SEPTEMBER 12-18, 2018
That’s happening far less than it used to, and the county’s facility, once crammed with young prisoners, has seen a steady decline in its average population year after year. Even though it has a capacity to hold 63 juveniles, staff at the youth jail say they have not seen more than 27 at a time in a decade. Sometimes, there are fewer than 10. Kids are brought in from 16 other jurisdictions in the state, but even then, it’s never even halfway full. The closing of juvenile jails in New Mexico and the dwindling numbers of kids at the Santa Fe County center reveal a larger trend: Youth incarceration in the state is falling, consistently and quickly, a result of reforms that reflect broader national trends. Those reforms, people who work in youth services say, have directly led to falling crime rates among people under 18. This shift presents a question for overseers of a facility built amid the prison boom of the late 20th century: Will the Santa Fe County youth detention center grow more important as other counties shutter theirs, or less, as the US appears to progress past the era of mass incarceration for young people? The answer depends on the funding available for alternatives, which can change with the political winds, and whether incarcerating kids is something society wants to keep doing. Tommy Rodriguez has witnessed a massive sea change in his 25 years working at CYFD. The state agency is best known for child welfare social services, but it’s also the body that oversees whether youth are initially incarcerated after being apprehended by police. For a long time, when it came to helping young people stay out of the system, “we weren’t being successful,” says Rodriguez, now the regional administrator for Juvenile Justice Services, overseeing probation and parole officers in Northern New Mexico. Set to retire in a few months, Rodriguez started as a juvenile probation officer in 1994. That was the same year President Bill Clinton signed the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act into law. It freed up billions of dollars for the construction of new federal prisons and for local departments to hire new police officers, and gave momentum to the broader tough-on-crime movement. Among young people, the “use of institutional confinement for even minor offenses was growing” in states across the country, according to the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice. In the media, some youth, especially black
teenagers, were characterized as “superpredators,” a term invented by a Princeton professor to describe a mythical “new breed” of criminal with “absolutely no respect for human life and no sense of the future.” Hillary Clinton infamously deployed the term while campaigning for her husband in 1996.

Soon after, the county saw a decline in both juvenile prisoner population and youth crime, according to Grace Philips, general

Back then, probation offices in New Mexico, like other states, dealt with kids harshly on a wide scale. “When I started, [probation officers] had caseloads of 40 to 45 kids,” he says. “Facilities were jam-packed, and detention centers were overflowing.” The kids they monitored were saddled with up to 45 conditions of probation, and violating even one could lead back to juvie. In the late 1990s, the private prison company that operated the Santa Fe youth detention center on contract, Cornell Companies (later acquired by GEO Group), pushed the county to expand the number of beds from 40 to 115. That never happened, and the county started managing operations on its own in 2004. It was around that time that the state’s Juvenile Justice Advisory Committee, whose members are appointed by the governor, started working with the Annie E Casey Foundation’s Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative (JDA). The foundation collects best practices and data, and offers training to local jurisdictions for how to divert young people away from jail by connecting them
counsel for the New Mexico Association of Counties. “After applying the JDA initiative, the population at their detention facility went way down, and criminal conduct by youth declined at the same rate,” Philips tells SFR. “You saw improvement in pub-
The number of annual referrals made by New Mexico law enforcement to juvenile probationary officers— which police are supposed to transmit every time they arrest someone under 18— fell steadily from 15,452 to 11,419 between fiscal years 2011 and 2017. The statewide trend cuts across gender, age, type of crime and race and ethnicity, according to numbers from CYFD. And it reflects locally in Santa Fe County. Between fiscal years 2014 and 2017, the number of alleged crimes committed by people primarily between the ages of
12 and 17 dropped, from 1,141 to 810. Use or possession of drug paraphernalia is the offense for which teens got pinched most frequently, followed by possession of marijuana and household battery. The county’s report from CYFD only includes the top 13 offenses committed by youth. More serious crimes such as murder, rape or violent shootings happen infrequently enough that they are not listed on the report. The contrast between these positive trends and mainstream news coverage of teenage delinquency is a constant frustration for Richard DeMella, the Santa Fe city planner for youth and family services. A former NYPD cop with a thick Brooklyn accent, DeMella now oversees three city programs that give youth in the system extra support in school and subject them to intensive monitoring. In recent years, the city has partnered with Communities in Schools and YouthWorks. “Juvenile crime has been declining as a whole in this state over the past eight years, but you would never hear that,” DeMella contends, because the media focuses on sensational and rare stories of youth violence. “All it takes is one incident to blow everything up.” The Santa Fe New Mexican reported in July that Santa Fe police suspected several disparate instances of violence this year to be gang-involved, including a shootout between two cars in the Santa Fe Place mall parking lot this summer. SFPD Detective Casey Salazar tells SFR the police believe at least some of the youth involved in that shootout were associated with an Española-based group called OTR, or On The Real. Salazar says this suspicion is based in part on a conversation with one youth CONTINUED ON PAGE 15

lic safety at the same time less youth are locked up.” It was more than a correlational relationship, says Rodriguez. It turns out that when you approach teenagers from a place of caring, he says, they’re more likely to engage, and less likely to get in serious trouble. And, case loads for juvenile parole officers are down to an average of 10 to 15. After 2002, he says, “We hired community behavioral health clinicians [and] masters-level social workers,” he says. “We now go over the backgrounds of kids, conduct triage where we talk about their lives from birth to present day, discuss what the kid had been through and experienced, why they aren’t doing well in school, why there may be dysfunction in the family.” From there, probation officers are supposed to slot them into services that fit their needs.
Youth correctional officer Melodie Montoya says the center offers 17 programs for teens including church services, painting workshops and group therapy.

The youth lockup has a few touches of childhood such as board games and classrooms, but it’s got a distinctive jail feeling.
and police review of social media postings. He could not recall whether the interviewed youth was involved in the shooting. Judge Mary Marlowe Sommer later dismissed charges for several teens arrested in the mall shooting because prosecutors hadn’t built their cases in a timely manner, and at least one teen was held at the juvenile center for 52 days. “When a youth is detained, the juvenile probation office will tell me if they have gang affiliation,” Sommer explains to SFR over the phone. “But that’s an allegation. It is not demonstrated.” Criminal Intelligence Officer Christopher Abbo tells SFR that SFPD has observed “a lot of traveling between Albuquerque and Santa Fe” of loosely affiliated peer groups allegedly involved in crime. The observation is disputed by Albino Garcia, the executive director of La Plazita Institute, a reporting center for adjudicated youth in the South Valley. “I don’t want to punk out Santa Fe, but
I really don’t know of any connections with Santa Fe and Albuquerque gang youth stuff,” Garcia says. DeMella, the city family and youth planner, thinks attention to high-profile but rare instances of organized youth crime affect public support for alternatives to detention, which can in turn affect funding for his programming. DeMella says state funding for programs he oversees took a sharp dive two years ago, to $130,000 annually from about $205,000 in 2015. But just as important for DeMella as funding is the availability of social services where kids can plug in. “My thing is, before we ask for money, let’s make sure we have services in place for people,” he says. Inside the Santa Fe County youth lockup, colorful murals painted by teens who have passed through here adorn an otherwise bleak cinder block hallway leading toward the six housing pods.
The pods, split between two main units, each hold about a dozen single-person cells on two floors, and have tables with seats attached to the floor in their common areas. In one pod, worn-looking board games sit on a table. Youth who are here for longer periods of time can earn privileges like watching television for good behavior. All of them are strip-searched each time they return to the facility from court or receiving visitors. Pablo Sedillo, the county’s public safety department director, maintains that staff and volunteers at the jail nurture creativity out of the youth, citing one teen who recently won a Zozobra-drawing contest held by the city and the Chamber of Commerce. Hidden talents, he says, “can unfortunately surface when they’re in a detention setting, because there are a lot of staff, mentors,” and volunteers. Melodie Montoya, the senior shift supervisor at the detention center, says
it offers 17 different programs for teens, including church services, poetry workshops, painting classes and substance abuse group therapy. This past summer, string musicians came and gave a performance, and a father-son pair from Cochiti Pueblo held workshops on drum-making. Adam, an 18-year-old who spoke to SFR under a pseudonym, says that he cycled in and out of the Santa Fe juvenile facility about a dozen times since he was 14. Being incarcerated as a teen “changes your mind,” Adam tells SFR. “Your mindset. You stop caring. You’re like, ‘Fuck it, I’m already in the system,’ and you stop caring.” Immediately before his 18th birthday, Adam went on the run, skipping his probation appointments after failing a urine drug test once again. He had failed enough of them to have spent months at a time at the Santa Fe youth jail, and was facing a year at Albuquerque’s Youth Diagnostic & Development Center for CONTINUED ON PAGE 17

his latest transgression. Eventually, he served about two weeks in the adult jail after turning 18. Adam is the type of kid whom CYFD would point to as most in need of intensive monitoring: His first offense was auto burglary, followed by threatening a security guard, and then larceny. The fact that his probation violations were mostly for failed drug tests is a reminder that Santa Fe has no inpatient substance abuse treatment program for juveniles, DeMella says. “Maybe he belongs in a residential treatment center, but there aren’t any here, so they stick him in the jail,” DeMella says. All incarcerated youth at the facility receive an hour of recreation daily, which may include time at a half-court with a single basketball hoop. The court is connected to a small library where a volunteer librarian visits twice a week. The books are donated and include novels, but also selections such as a Mickey Mouse picture book not meant for most teens. Three boys file into the library wearing brown jumpsuits, the standard uniform here. Had they chosen not to go to the library, their only other choice was to remain in the housing pod.

In 2015 county commissioners considered closing the facility because of its consistently low usage and high cost. The juvenile jail then made up a tenth of the county’s total corrections budget, and still does. On July 1, the county approved an operating budget that earmarked $2.2 million for the facility, with $1.4 million going to staff salary and benefits. A task force formed in 2015 recommended that the county tear down the old building and build a newer, more modern one that could serve as a regional youth detention center. County Commissioner Anna Hansen says the cost of the plan was too high to consider, but that the closure of the Taos youth jail has already made Santa Fe a “de facto regional juvenile center.” Commissioners haven’t seriously discussed closing it since. The county receives $185 a day for each child it detains from other jurisdictions, contract payments that amounted to more than $428,000 last year. “If we closed, we would have to transport all these kids to another location, which affects a lot of different things,” Sedillo argues, such as taking beat cops off the street to book youth at other lockups.
By The Numbers
Richard DeMella says state funding for youth programs has taken a dive, and he’d like to see it rebound.
They should get therapy and education, they should be taken care of in jail, not just thrown in there like an old box. We need comprehensive programming for those kids. -Richard DeMella, Santa Fe city planner for youth and family services
Tommy Rodriguez, the regional administrator for Juvenile Justice Services, strikes a similar tone. Closing the jail, he says, “would be like removing kids from the community again. Kids who commit serious offenses need to be housed someplace, so we’d have to move them to places like Bernalillo or Las Cruces.” Even DeMella thinks jailing youth has its place. “If a kid murders someone or rapes, and there are people like that, they belong in jail, but not in the cell by themselves,” he says. “They should get therapy and education, they should be taken care of in jail, not just thrown in there like an old box. We need
comprehensive programming for those kids.” Large-scale alternatives to jailing continue to catch on elsewhere. Earlier this year, for example, Connecticut closed its only juvenile correction facility. Journalist Nell Bernstein has argued that the practice of incarcerating any youth should be abolished, because of the effects of institutionalization and because it is intractably racist in practice. (As elsewhere, children of color in New Mexico are disproportionately incarcerated.) “If you think of the major developmental tasks of adolescence, they’re things like: Forming trusting relationships, which is taboo inside any locked facility,” Bernstein said in an interview with now-defunct The Awl. “They live this very regimented life where they’re not allowed to make any decisions or ask any questions or form any relationships.” There have been no reported accusations of abuse by staff at the Santa Fe facility in recent years, nor have there been reports of sexual assault, both of which have plagued other facilities across the country. One youth to whom SFR sent a list of questions and who declined to give his name said his monthlong stint at the facility helped him. For others like Adam, the routines of jail life were damaging, especially after repeated visits. He says he doesn’t want other youth to experience what he did as a teenager. “Personally, I don’t like to be institutionalized,” he tells SFR. “It doesn’t teach you nothing, until something real happens, like you’re facing a year [in jail].” He is now working to finish his GED, making up for time he lost while incarcerated at various times over the last couple of years.

Into the Woods Open houses on forest plan revision to allows a peek at Santa Fe National Forest’s future BY ELIZABETH MILLER e l i z a b e t h @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
hirty years ago, before downhill mountain biking was a popular sport or ultrarunning had broken into the world stage, before high-speed chairlifts had reached more than a one-off demo in the US, and before side-by-side models of ATVs had branched out from farm work, the Santa Fe National Forest issued a management plan. That plan has been amended 13 times, but it has become apparent that the needs of the 1.5 million-acre forest, which stretches from alpine lakes and peaks to the desert of Caja del Rio, have outgrown those modifications and a full rewrite is due. Even public perceptions, uses and values of the forest have changed in the three decades since this plan was drafted, as the Forest Service notes in documents about its effort to rewrite the plan. To draw people into the process and draft a plan that both reflects their current needs and future wishes, Forest Service staff have hosted more than 230 public meetings with more than 3,000 attendees. The latest is a series of informal open houses, including one in Santa Fe on Sept. 27, for people to consider new materials, including pieces of the draft plan that have not yet been published for public review, and to offer feedback and guidance. “Folks may catch something that would be helpful to us,” says Charles Clark, collaboration specialist with the Santa Fe
National Forest who joined the agency in 2015 specifically to work on this plan revision. “It’s really an opportunity to let people know what’s coming, explain a lot of the terms and documents that are coming out, and then get informal feedback.” For dedicated commenters, it’s a chance to study up before formal comment periods open up on the draft plan and environmental impact statement. The documents take shape under broad ideological groupings, labeled alternatives, around whether to emphasize utilization of the forest or natural processes. Those groupings will guide broad strokes, like whether the service prioritizes maintaining roads people use to remove forest products or decommissioning them to improve ecological conditions or restore riparian areas. Clark says he expects the final plan will land, as many multiple stakeholder initiatives do, with a mixed agenda that most resembles the alternative that calls for a balance. “What we want is for the final plan to really capture our best research as well as much of the public,” he says. Among the bigger concerns reviewed in this process are whether to suggest Congress expand any of the national for-

est’s wilderness areas. Suggesting such a land designation automatically confers the rules applied to designated wilderness areas, banning mechanized tools and toys, according to federal officials. The consideration has had mountain bikers worried that trails will be off-limits and cattle ranchers concerned they won’t be able to use mechanized equipment to clear trails and ATVs to manage their cattle. The service considers on-the-ground details, like whether major roads, utility lines or other noticeable structures cross an area that, by definition, would need to appear “untrammeled by man.” Then it gets into the weeds on the physical experience of the place, and whether it represents wilderness qualities like solitude. The impossibility of balancing it all appears in just two public comments collected by the Forest Service on this revision. One says “evidence of old roads should preclude wilderness consideration,” while another states “old roads that are being reclaimed through natural processes should not preclude wilderness consideration.”

The majority of lands The Wilderness Society has advocated to see in the wilderness inventory did make that list, says Michael Casaus, New Mexico state director for The Wilderness Society. If there’s concern, it’s that not all of about 100,000 acres supported for wilderness or special conservation designation will be listed for public consideration. “The public isn’t given an opportunity to weigh in on the full scope of potential recommended wilderness in the plan because the Forest Service has not carried forward certain areas that, again, have been endorsed by a broad set of local and regional government entities,” he says. On the other end, the Santa Fe Fat Tire Society has been working to make sure some of the areas where the club has re-opened trails affected by the Pacheco Fire stay open to mountain bikers. “We’re supportive of what they’ve proposed in their draft for recommended wilderness,” says Brent Bonwell, president of the Fat Tire Society. “Mountain bikers— we’re conservationists, too, because we enjoy being out in the forest and enjoying it in its current state.” It’s just tough, given that wilderness status means an end to access for mountain bikers. The one thing that remains consistent in every version of the forthcoming plan are the areas marked for oil and gas or geothermal leases. “It’s a separate standalone process and the results of that we just take as-is,” Clark says. A draft plan and environmental impact statement is scheduled for release in January. OPEN HOUSE ON SANTA FE NATIONAL FOREST MANAGEMENT PLAN REVISION 2:30-5:30 pm Thursday Sept. 27. Free.

BOOKS/ LECTURE SUN/16
New Woman Poems explore art, history, love and Northern New Mexico
When Santa Fe-based poet Lauren Camp was invited to be poet-in-residence at Taos’ Mabel Dodge Luhan House in 2013, it turns out she was basically just given a free vacation. “The invitation came without any expectations,” Camp says. “I didn’t have to produce anything if I didn’t want to … but I wrote 54 pages of poems. It was nuts!” That stack of poems has become Turquoise Door, a collection of poetic musings on the early-20th century patron of the arts. “I had no interest in Mabel,” Camp says of the book’s genesis. But the staff of the Luhan house were eager to feed Camp’s growing curiosity about Luhan and the time she lived in New Mexico. The complicated, intelligent, pioneering, stubborn, and perhaps not always likeable Luhan at the center of the book is nothing if not a fascinating study. The book is thick, both in volume (over 100 pages of poetry) and in substance. At first glance, it’s perhaps too dense to enter into. But Camp urges the reader to consider her subject. “Mabel was not always kind, or maybe even decent,” Camp says. “But she was remarkable as
an early feminist, before there even was such a thing. I think they called her a ‘new woman.’” Camp, like Luhan, grew up in New York State and came to New Mexico as an adult, but she says the parallels that may seem obvious between her and her subject are perhaps a red herring. “I wouldn’t say that we are like souls,” Camp says. “But it’s kind of fascinating to write about someone you think you might not like, or who might not like you. I don’t think the book is for Mabel at all. It’s more a book exploring her and her time period and what she did, and respecting the positive things she did.” Indeed, the book is not an exaltation of the woman, but more an honest considering of New Mexico: its fraught and beautiful history, and its haunted and pensive present.

Friday, September 14th 7-9pm $10 (+$10 surcharge for 2 CEUs or 2 Ethics CEUs or 2 Cultural CEUs) We are destroying life on the planet—the “Sixth Extinction.” What is wrong in this profoundly unethical situation? The basic answer is simple: our attempts to “predict and control” everything have taken over any sense of being a part of everything. We see this tension conceptualized throughout history: the interplay of Yin and Yang; David Bakan’s concepts of agency and communion; and, more recently, in The Master and his Emissary, Iain McGilchrist has expressed profound concern that the extracting, separate-from-the-world, functioning of the left hemisphere of the brain—the “emissary”—has forgotten that it serves the “master”—the holistic, functioning-within-the-world, right hemisphere. The differences between indigenous and colonialist cultures demonstrate the tension. Settler colonialism in the U.S., expressed as Manifest Destiny, is a profound example of unmitigated agency. Events such as the protest at Standing Rock offer an image of a different approach that persists despite the temporary defeat—a fierce, loving, expression of community and connection with the earth. The speaker will show some photographs of nature including the loss of the lodgepole pine to the mountain pine beetle, secondary to global warming and unsustainable forestry practices. They are images of the “brutiful” power of nature responding to anthropogenic assaults.
Workshop: Ethical Considerations: What can I do?
Saturday, September 15th 9:30am-2:45pm $55 4 CEUs or 4 Ethics CEUs We will discuss the ethical question, “What can I do?” We will use and expand upon the lecture concepts (briefly recapped for those unable to attend the lecture) to explore the deep ethics of: “How can I Be?” How can we take effective action? How do we deal with rage and despair? How do we persist in an attitude of hope, gratitude, and power? What are the particular ethical issues in addressing these issues in therapy? The presenter will also utilize a powerful model from the psychology of wilderness survival, “deep survival,” that is ultimately an ethical stance applicable far beyond wilderness emergencies.

In the Here and TOM HINES
Grizzly Bear’s Daniel Rossen and activist Amelia Bauer bring joy to the fight for women’s rights
BY LUKE HENLEY a u t h o r @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
aybe the years pass quicker or more things change within them lately. Either way, it seems like ages ago that the now-baseline insanity in discourse and politics first sprang forth with new affronts on human rights and dignity chittering out of our Facebook feeds. Speaking to immediate events, the current presidential administration is ushering in a new Supreme Court justice who attempts to keep his stances against women’s health and reproductive rights wriggly enough as to avoid full focus—but we see what they are doing. Thankfully, people like Daniel Rossen, singer and guitarist of indie act Grizzly Bear, and his wife Amelia Bauer are doing the good work to help stem the flow of anti-woman, restrictive rightwing rhetoric via their work with the Noise for NOW (National Organization of Women) Initiative. And what’s even better? You’re invited to the party. Almost exactly a year ago, Noise for NOW staged one of Santa Fe’s most impressive bills in recent memory boasting acts such as Bon Iver, TV On The Radio and Tune-Yards. It was an unprecedented event in a lot of ways, even in Santa Fe’s ever-growing concert market. As Rossen says, it was “a level of show that wasn’t really happening here. You had giant acts coming to the opera—really established acts like Lyle Lovett and Bon-
nie Raitt—but there was a whole echelon of bands that just couldn’t come here because they can’t really afford to route it in.” A year down the line, Noise for NOW’s scope continues to grow. “We’ve taken Noise for NOW and made it into a national effort,” Bauer says. “We have more and more people joining the organization all the time, and we’re organizing shows like these here in Santa Fe in various parts of the country that have been identified to us as places of high need for funding for women’s health and abortion access.”
It’s a dual focus that benefits communities by creating new markets for excellent shows that feature high-profile acts while also benefiting women’s rights in an increasingly hostile legal environment. In a political landscape that causes what people often refer to as resistance fatigue, such concerts offer a vital beacon to keep activists invigorated and ready to fight. A large part of this vitality is because the events are rooted in revelry and the unifying force of music. Even as things continue to get worse, according to Bauer, she says there is a serious thrust
forward in the attitude of organizers, musicians and concert attendees. “Having a public event that you can tangibly ascertain the level of support for this cause keeps it fresh and alive,” she says. “It’s a dynamic way to stay involved. It’s celebratory, you know?” Helping to stoke this celebratory spark is Rossen’s band Grizzly Bear, whose Noise for NOW appearance coincides with the tail end of their tour in support of the excellent 2017 album Painted Ruins. Rossen, now a Santa Fe resident after years of adoration for the city, wrote the album remotely, via the internet, with his band mates who now occupy various regions of the United States. Nevertheless, the album has a cohesion and unity of vision that harks back to the band’s tight-knit early days in the Brooklyn jam space in which they began. “We’ve worked to make the music more collectivized,” Rossen explains. “This was probably the most collaborative version of songwriting that we’ve done. Even though we were working from afar, to begin with everything went through a filter whereby everybody in the band could contribute.” Live, of course, Grizzly Bear shines with the comfortable strength of four members who have played together for a little over a decade and a half. In addition to Grizzly Bear’s performance, Noise for NOW also stages upcoming solo performances by indie pop wonder St. Vincent and avant-folk statesman Andrew Bird at the Santa Fe Opera on Tuesday Sept. 18. Scheduled to appear alongside Grizzly Bear is Albuquerque-originated freak-folk band A Hawk and a Hacksaw, a recent addition to the bill featuring pop genius Heather Trost and all-around musical weirdo Jeremy Barnes.

“The intertwining of red and blue is energy, and it’s pulsating through these snakes and playing with the figure,” she says. “With all of the pieces there’s an interplay of hot and cold and how they play with each other. It’s visually striking, but blue and pink are the representation of the two sides of the self.” “Link in a Chain” more overtly displays the aforementioned idea of symmetry: A bull with nearly identical horns is surrounded by a chain that doesn’t quite meet. It’s arboreal, with the creature either transforming to a tree or having mor-

phed from one; the beast’s third eye oozes energy and follows you wherever you go. This animal-meets-plant motif is a sly hint at her burgeoning body of work, early ideas from which we’ll see at Two Sides / Same Coin, and a project that finds Luna randomly generating plant and animal subjects and abstracting on the results with homeopathic flora imagery and the accoutrements of the natural world. “I always do people,” she notes, “but I’ve wanted to do still lifes with plants and animals; I want to make double helixes out of plants and bugs—I want to be versatile, I don’t want to just continue creating the same thing over and over again because it’s my comfort zone.” This speaks, of course, to growth—personal, artistic or otherwise—and becomes an excellent counterpoint to the Two Sides / Same Coin idea of balance. How does one balance their own duality while tackling and managing growth as a human or as an artist? “To make art that has some kind of emotion people resound with, that takes putting yourself into it,” Luna muses. “Not to say, ‘I bleed for thee!’ but [this body] is definitely personal. It’s somehow kind of scary.”
COURTESY SIENNA LUNA
During a late afternoon studio visit with painter, illustrator and graphic designer Sienna Luna, she is bustling through last-minute preparations for her upcoming show at the ART.i.factory, the gallery space within the Art.i.fact consignment shop. Paints and tools litter the table of her small space, but it is still impossibly clean. She offers me figs—literal figs. A Santa Fe native who returned to town after a stint in Arizona, Luna’s had a little more than a month to prepare new works, brush up in-progress pieces and create prints for Two Sides / Same Coin, an event that not only showcases the artist’s gorgeous, colorful work, but that serves to help her explore the concept of duality in art, nature, mankind and herself. “It’s about the balance of opposing identities,” Luna says, “and the same patterns playing out in the natural world.” Luna says the concept started out through mere observation of her surroundings. This eventually grew into a regular practice of seeking, both within herself and inside other people who gravitate into her sphere. “I started noticing it in other people— how we seek to find that balance within ourselves. … We’re trying to find our identities; are we masculine, feminine, something in between? It was about trying to illustrate people who maybe aren’t one or the other, an interplay of elements in most people. I wanted to understand what I was noticing.” Take titular piece “Two Sides Same Coin,” a work that embraces yet toys with the notion of symmetry. We observe a woman from behind, her shoulders and back bare but emblazoned with sacred geometry and a single red bird; her headdress has become a makeshift nest. Around her, jutting upward, are two writhing snakes, one red and the other blue, nearly meeting in the middle. Perhaps a nod to Uroboros, the snake that ate itself, but more of a play on the idea of two.

“I was born into an art family,” artist and gallerist Matthew Rowe says. “Both my parents are art dealers, and ever since I was a kid, when we took vacations, it was museums and galleries—and I’ve always been making stuff.” Rowe’s name might sound familiar due to Addison Rowe Gallery, a space that specializes in deceased artists such as Emil Bisttram and Beatrice Mandelman—but he’s a devout ceramicist in his own right and has trained in both Eastern and Western methods at the University of New Mexico, the Oxbow School in California and under Santa Fe ceramics master Heidi Loewen. “I kind of stumbled upon it in college, the idea that clay is like a record,” Rowe says. “Like how some of the earliest Babylonian records we have are receipts carved into clay.” In his upcoming show, Contextual K e r n i n g, Rowe builds on his love of clay as he simultaneously embodies an exercise in letting go. As much as any artist does, Rowe labors over each piece in its initial stages—but whereas the clay and ceramics most people are familiar with tend to be utilitarian pieces such as bowls or vessels, Rowe’s works are made to be broken. Each piece is carefully crafted, deliberately broken, then rebuilt into wall hangings meant for beautification rather than use. “Part of it was working in a gallery and realizing people value something that hangs on a wall more than sits on a table,” Rowe says, “and part of it was this kind of celebration within our cultural norms; celebrating a broken piece and raising its value by putting it on the wall—you’re taking away the function of the piece, but you’re shifting it, celebrating the work.” For each piece, Rowe uses the slab method of throwing clay, a style that shirks the more readily recognizable vesssel-turning wheel to create two-dimensional creations. Next, he creates patterns and shapes within the clay before he breaks it down into pieces—a step that is necessary due to the small size of his kiln. While the pieces are fired for upward of 16 hours, Rowe builds the wooden backs and frames in which they’ll hang. “I’ve learned in this process that I spend almost as much time making the backs as the pieces themselves,” he says, “but it’s not just a board the ceramic is attached to. I’ve tried to make it so there’s a conversation between the background and the piece.” This means a sort of 3-D effect for many works. Rowe also creates in smaller
mediums, such as tile, but with a similar break-the-clay methodology. “That way you’re not creating the illusion of space,” he says. “It’s actually there.” Rowe delves into minimalism as well, but with a decidedly Japanese bent. A self-described obsessive when it comes to Japanese architecture, many of his pieces resemble the types of paper screens, doors and windows we associate with traditional homes on the island nation. He achieves this simply, with wooden dowels mounted on the backing, but he toils over their positioning until he considers them just right—an interesting step, considering how completely he seems to enjoy the sometimes random shapes that occur during the breaking of the clay. Still, the commitment to minimalism illustrates another point for Rowe: namely, the way we speak about and consume art. “I feel like the over-conceptualization in contemporary art is one of the things that’s ruining it,” he says. “I don’t want to write a manifesto! If I have to write that way about it, the works aren’t doing their job. I’m just trying to make things I like.” Find Rowe’s show at both his residency at the Beals & Co. Showroom, which opens this Friday, and at Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado (198 Hwy. 592, 946-5700) through Sept. 16. MATTHEW ROWE: CONTEXTUAL K E R N I N G 5-8 pm Friday Sept. 14. Free.

Behold, the 11th annual Santa Fe Renaissance Faire cometh this weekend (10 am-5 pm Saturday and Sunday Sept. 15 and 16. $10-$12. 334 Los Pinos Road, 471-2261), and therein shall thee find fat turkey legs, chivalrous jousts, old-timey costumes the mysterious fairy village and a living freaking unicorn. We spoke with Victor Macias, event coordinator for El Rancho de las Golondrinas, the venue and “living museum” in which this fantastical event takes place. (Layne Radlauer)
Kitchen open til 10 PM daily All Ages ∙ Dog Friendly Patio
Renaissance fairs are typically for nerds. What does this one offer people who aren’t into renaissance festivals? Our festival is very family-friendly. There’s a lot of activities for families to do, many of which are educational. You also don’t have to dress up—there are a lot of people who don’t dress up. You don’t have to dress up in a costume to see the joust or the fairy forest. Plenty of educational opportunities for everyone, you can really learn a lot about history here. There is also a lot a food, too, which is definitely a draw for some. Did I tell you about the train? Rio Metro has train service from Albuquerque to the 599 drop off. The blue bus will be picking people up from there and bringing them here. Other buses will pick people up from various parts of town, like the mall. The Rio Metro and blue buses have partnered up with us to pick people up who don’t want to drive. Food, turkey legs in particular, is a huge draw for the festival. Is there anything you’re particularly excited about? There’s not just fair food. There are plenty of options and vendors at the festival. We have tacos, for example, which people don’t usually expect. They’re very popular too, there’s always a long line, and tend to be the first to go. We do, of course, have turkey legs, but there’s a lot of other vendors, too, and there’s a lot of lighter food for those who don’t want to eat turkey legs. We’ve also got vegetarian options, so everyone can feast. There is a unicorn at the fairy forest. Is it real, and if so, how did you capture it? The unicorn is very real. Her name is Zima, and she’s beautiful. We did not capture her, she came in on her own. Everyone is allowed to come and pet her.

Osteria D’Assisi Look no further for authentic Italian cuisine than Osteria, and it’s served in a decidedly unstuffy and farmhouse-esque environment amid cheery rooms, stellar service and, often, live piano music. Owner Lino Pertusini hails from Italy—as do almost all ingredients used in crafting the menu. He has sought to create food and atmosphere to rival his homeland and a more upscale experience than his other, admittedly excellent, Santa Fe establishment, Pizzeria and Trattoria da Lino on Guadalupe Street. Osteria’s hearty appetizers such as the soup of the day ($7) and fried calamari ($14) prepare the way for lunch or dinner choices such as the lightly breaded and sinfully cheesy pollo parmigiana ($17-$25), unfathomably tender piccata di vitello veal chop ($32) or osso buco e risotto ($37). Osteria’s is not an expansive menu, but it’s a refreshing lack of clutter and specials change often. Housemade tiramisu ($8.50) sweetens the deal, and with lunch combos featuring salads and sandwiches, you won’t break the bank. (Alex De Vore)
Tesuque Village Market Tesuque is home to families that have owned land here since the 16th century right next to movie stars who designed their brand-new adobe mansions. It is only fitting that the area’s mainstay eatery comfortably accommodates everyone. TVM, having recently expanded to Venice, California, keeps its anchor firmly in New Mexico with a restaurant-cum-market (est. 1989) with spicy chile and creaky wood floors. Among offerings are a brick-oven pizza ($18 for a 16-inch margherita), red chile posole with pork ($13 a bowl), a bigas-your-head chicken quesadilla ($11) and Frito pie ($11 for veggie—beef will run you $14), not to mention household staples at a premium (grab a 14-ounce bottle of ketchup here for $4 rather than run into town to spend half that). Maybe there’s something to be said here about gentrification—but sitting back at a table that bucks when you lean on it (the floor’s crooked, not the furniture), the trees full of noisy late-summer bugs, neighbors and international travelers chatting table to table—what matters most to us elsewhere just doesn’t carry the same weight here. Note: The margaritas ($12.50 for a house) mess you up, so have a DD handy. Or take a long walk. (Charlotte Jusinski)
Rowley Farmhouse Ales Even as someone who doesn’t drink beer, I still frequent breweries. Rowley Farmhouse Ales exemplifies why: The food is amazing, the atmosphere is comfortable, and beer people are generally the best people. Rowley does always have a cider on tap for folks like me, so I got a Scrumpy organic hard cider ($7.50). As for food: Korean-style wings ($9), shrimp and grits (which I would suggest they call “meaty mighty sea-bugs resting on perfect butter clouds,” $15), tender and flaky seared black cod over toasted coconut rice ($19) and a creamy farmer’s market risotto ($14) flew out to the table. It’s gastropub food without the haughty vibe; alternately, the best brewery fare sans grease or regret. To finish, a few scoops of blackberry ice cream ($3) made with the fruit left over from the summer’s brewing had just enough yeasty funk (we say that lovingly). It finished off a meal with great company that, I must admit, could probably only be improved by a beer crafted by a Los Alamos National Lab scientist (aka John Rowley). Maybe next time.

X-mas? More like heck, yes.
Chile and Comfort on Canyon Road Don’t let the Italian moniker fool you—Caffe Greco’s dishes are purely New Mexican BY MARY FRANCIS CHEESEMAN a u t h o r @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
ositioned at Canyon Road’s origin point sits Caffe Greco, a quirky, family-owned restaurant that serves as an abridged introduction of what to expect for the throngs of uninitiated visitors exploring Santa Fe’s historic street of art galleries. It’s a primary-colored love letter to Northern New Mexican food and art, occupying a 200-year-old adobe building with red, blue and yellow painted walls adorned with retablos, car cartoon cowboys and José Guadalupe PosaPosa da-style calaveras. You’ll find chandeliers made of antlers hanging almost at eye-leveye-lev el from low ceilings of wooden vigas and an old cigarette machine turned Art-o-mat which, for $5, serves up the most wallet-friendly art on Canyon Road. Add in the menu of standards as classic as a jukebox playlist, from huevos rancheros and enchiladas to Frito pie and stuffed sopaipillas, and you have a particular blend of elements perfectly suited to the
uniquely Santa Fean style of synesthesia tourists feel so acutely—spicy chile and fried tortillas offered alongside works of art that seem to come from a dream where everything tastes as strong as it looks. Owners Rita and Michael Linder opened Caffe Greco in 1992, after moving to Santa Fe in 1987 from New York City. Their shared passion was not restaurants but opera, which Rita studied at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, a conservatory in Rome, and which Michael performed as a cantor working at Carnegie Hall. Their favorite restaurant was Antico Caffè Greco, a historic café and the oldest bar in Rome. When it came time to name their Santa Fe venture, they decided on homage. Presently there are multi-
ple generations of the family working in the restaurant, including daughter Julie Bell and her husband Lance; the Bell family owned a department store in Santa Fe for 58 years. Though the Linders named their restaurant after a Roman institution, the wheelhouse of chef Ray Velasquez is undeniably New Mexican food, the kinds of things he learned to make in his grandma’s Las Vegas kitchen as a child. His cooking has garnered plenty of recent critical praise with Pasatiempo naming his green chile stew ($8.95) one of the finest in Santa Fe, and Edible Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Taos singling out his Frito pie ($8.95) and green chile cheeseburger ($13.95). Since nothing inspires a chile Sep craving like the cool air of September, I decided I needed to try that burger. It arrived on a homemade bun sizzling and piping hot, loaded with Monterey jack and Socor green chile from Socorro. Chunky and fresh, the green chile was a delight, and the burger itself was simple, locally sourced, grassfed beef that was straightforward and delicious. My dining companion ordered a burri mixed vegetable burri-
to of spinach, summer squash, sweet peppers and artichoke ($12.95) smothered in red and green chile. The red was equally compelling, sourced from Chimayó, earthy and not too spicy no matter what the allcaps warning printed on the menu claimed. My palate has a mid-level sensi sensitivity to spice—I like it and crave it, but there are limits—and though the sauce made me sweat a little on that cool after afternoon, nothing made my lips swell up or my face turn red or cause any of the other less-delicate side effects for which chile can sometimes be responsible. There are also stuffed sopaipillas ($13.95) featuring pork adovada or beans and cheese, crispy chalupas ($12.95) and, in addition to the homemade green chile stew, an arroz con pollo soup and posole are available for $8.95. Caffe Greco also has items available on the menu that are not New Mexican, such as a Reuben sandwich ($14.95) and a green chile grilled cheese ($10.95) and, since the restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, you’ll also find omelets ($12.95) and stacks of pancakes ($11.95). Breakfast is served all day, but the ribeye and grilled wild-caught salmon (both $23.95) are only available at night. Still, the regional cuisine outshines it all. Beers are expensive at $6 for a Bud Light, projecting a sort of blue-collar version of the Canyon Road-style wine list prices further up the street at The Compound and Geronimo, but I’m not mad at it. The tourist experience is part of the pilgrim’s progress, and Caffe Greco makes for a wonderful way station for the acolyte looking to explore Santa Fe’s finer secrets.

RATINGS BEST MOVIE EVER
The Nun Review
BY ALEX DE VORE a l e x @ s f r e p o r t e r. c o m
It’s possible the people behind the Conjuring series had the prequel in mind from the start when the first movie dropped in 2013, but a more likely explanation is that horror has enjoyed a major resurgence in the last decade and there was money to be made. Enter The Nun, a prequel to four (!) other films and a fun, sometimes-scary late-summer popcorn flick starring what’s-her-face from American Horror Story (Taissa Farmiga, who of course is related to The Conjuring’s Vera Farmiga), some dude as a priest (Demián Bichir) and some other dude as the French Canadian version of deus ex machina (Jonas Bloquet). Spooky goings-on abound in an ancient convent in the hills of Romania, so when a nun from the cloister offs herself (the ultimate sin in Catholicism, we’re told), the Vatican sends their best evil and/or miracles investigator to see what’s up. Turns out an evil presence has been tearing it up out there and messing with

the hundreds of years of perpetual adoration maintained by the nuns. Supernatural devil stuff ensues with minimal hints to the principal characters’ back stories, subtle nods to the property’s outlying universe and any number of “Did that actually just happen?!” jump scares. This makes The Nun feel exhilarating at times, even if it suffers from disjointed filler scenes that only seem to exist as setup to the run-ins with the demon, who appears as a sincerely frightening nun. It’s the eyes, y’know? The eyes. Actors’ performances, meanwhile, are serviceable, though they usually have more to do with wide-eyed heavy breathing than actual acting; we get minimal information about
demonology and something about the Knights Templar. Whatevs. But we didn’t show up because we hoped for the contemporary horror equivalent of Citizen Kane—we showed up because the monster is scary, the jump scares are plenty and we need distractions from these waning warm days. Add another notch to your horror movie record for sure, and enjoy the spooks—just don’t think about anything too hard.

CRAZY RICH ASIANS
+ COOL PREMISE, CONSISTENT FEEL; TRUITT AND FRANCO
- REYNOR AND THE FINALE
Before you go see KIN, know this: There’s going to be a sequel. There has to be. The feature film debut of directors and brothers Jonathan and Josh Baker walks a weird line between gritty reality and otherworldly sci-fi. The Baker brothers have only written and directed a handful of short films, and KIN is based on 2014’s Bag Man. It’s an admirable effort that hangs together well, despite some obvious shortcomings. As the film opens, we meet Eli Solinski (promising newcomer Myles Truitt), a smart but troubled kid who is the adopted son of Hal, a hardworking widower played by Dennis Quaid (Something to Talk About). When he’s not getting in trouble at school, Eli has a side hustle selling wire from abandoned Detroit buildings. That’s where he finds a futuristic gun that is the film’s strongest tie to science fiction until the very end. Eli’s older brother is Hal’s biological son, Jimmy (Jack Reynor, Grassland), who just got out of jail. He’s in deep with local dirtbag Taylor (James Franco, Freaks and Geeks) for protecting him in prison. It’s the reason Jimmy and Eli (kin, get it?) have to hit the road, with Taylor close on

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT
their heels. Also on their heels are two soldiers from the future who seem pretty anxious to get that gun back from Eli. Everyone eventually catches up to Jimmy and Eli and the film comes together in very cool way, but with only minutes to wrap it up. Franco’s larger-than-life-gangster arc fizzles, and most of the plot questions are addressed with what feels like a line or two. That’s the beef most people seem to have with the film, anyway, and it’s legit. The Bakers hooked up with Stranger Things producers Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen, and the film has strong ties to the feel of that series, right down to Eli riding his bike everywhere in the beginning. Overall, it coalesces pretty well with respect to tempo and mood, but weak spots include Reynor’s performance, as well as a strong need for a few minutes more on the tail end to get the viewer more invested in the plot twist. KIN is getting panned big-time on metrics sites like Rotten Tomatoes and MetaCritic, but those ratings feel a bit impatient. If this movie does stand alone, you’ll have reason to be disappointed, but if it’s the start of something innovative (or even just interesting), you’ll be rewarded. It plays pretty well on the big screen, so if you’re going to roll the dice, do it soon. (Matt Grubs) Regal, Violet Crown, PG-13, 108 min. CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

only a few lines that mostly just reaffirm that his character is gay. But it’s fun to see sweeping aerial shots of Singapore, especially when used in conjunction with the over-the-top lifestyle of the Young family. Fireworks happen, y’all. And then eventually we’re fed a rom-com trope about Rachel and Nick’s undying love having nothing to do with money or status or making overbearing family members happy. The sorta-kinda-twist, however, lies in the stark reality of drastically differing social stations. This feels perhaps more true-to-life than plenty of the genre’s other examples, but still—wouldn’t you know it—love conquers all. Thank goodness, then, for the fantastic music found throughout Crazy Rich Asians that generally comes in the form of hit American or British songs covered in Chinese. This really sets a tone that makes non-Asian viewers feel welcome but still out of our element, a seemingly small yet clever touch in a film that is definitely aiming for fun rather than high art. Hopefully, though, it won’t be another two decades before Asian filmmakers and actors get another shot at the big screen of this scope. Frankly, it shouldn’t have to be a novelty—and if Hollywood’s concern is that (white) audiences won’t get it, let this be a lesson to them: If you make it, we will come.

THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST
+ DIVERSE CAST PLAYS DEEP CHARACTERS
- CRINGEWROTHY TOPIC
There’s nothing in this story that is easy to watch. Even during the flashbacks of hushed moments of intimacy, we’re cringing because of the rest of the context. The only thing that keeps our minds on track is the thought that adults in New Mexico are no longer allowed to subject their kids to what goes on in The Miseducation of Cameron Post. The state Legislature outlawed so-called “conversion therapy” in 2017, but it was perfectly legal in the state of Pennsylvania in 1993, the setting for this story. Cameron, played by Chloë Grace Moretz (Carrie, 2013), lands in the God’s Promise boarding school after a prom night that ends with shocking revelations to her high-school boyfriend. All the coded language and stunning agendas emerge at once, and Cameron herself seems paralyzed, numbed, unable to figure out whether she wants to or can be cured of her gayness, or whether she should plot an escape. The sparse dialog from the teen at first makes the biting words of the adults even sharper. “You,” says creepy psychologist Dr. Marsh, “are at an age when you are especially vulnerable to evil.” Jennifer Ehle (Fifty Shades of Grey) makes us believe she’s willing to go to any length to break the kids, and the basic message here is that “there is no such thing as homosexuality,” and teens with same-sex attraction are acting out some sort of deficiency in their lives that can be fixed with more Bible and fewer orgasms. But don’t get us wrong—it’s not an even slightly funny take. The teens predictably suffer damage by this philosophy and by severed relationships with their parents. Their characters are deep in the omission of details—and just what we don’t know also seems to offer a plethora of clues. We manage to cheer a little inside when it’s clear Cameron won’t take the bait, and we celebrate the way like minds can still find each other in the guarded friendships she forms.

CRAZY RICH ASIANS
+ VERY PRETTY; WU IS THE BEST - CHECKS OFF ALL THE STAID ROM-COM BOXES
It’s been well over 20 years since a mainstream American-produced film featured an entirely Asian cast (the last one was The Joy Luck Club in 1993, by the way, and Asians still remain the least-represented ethnicity in movies)—but with the release of the explosively popular Crazy Rich Asians from Now You See Me 2 director John M
BLACKKKLANSMAN So-called gay conversion therapy is illegal in New Mexico. Thank God. Still, The Miseducation of Cameron Post is a stirring and excellent film. Chu, this alarming issue may change. Or at least be addressed better by Hollywood? Fingers crossed. Representation matters—even if the underlying plot of the Kevin Kwan book-turned-movie follows a relatively formulaic plotline. Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat) is Rachel Chu, a young NYU econ professor who has fallen for the uber-charming Nick Young, heir to bazillions of family dollars, but who hasn’t told Rachel that he’s rich despite their year-long relationship—an interesting factoid she only discovers once the pair heads to Nick’s homeland of Singapore for a wedding. A seriously fancy-ass wedding. Cue mild drama (she forgives him for not mentioning the rich thing pretty quickly) and jokes about how things sure are different over there. Wu asserts her leading-lady position brilliantly, a comedic actor with a knack for sublime timing and who has proven her chops on television for years. Here she portrays a cool and up-for-anything type who bravely fields Young
family drama from Nick’s mother (the talented and graceful Michelle Yeoh of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon fame), vindictive, jealous exes and petty rich types; get this woman in more projects immediately, someone. Elsewhere, B-plot elements feel shoehorned in at best, particularly the crumbling marriage of Nick’s sister Astrid (Gemma Chan) and a wildly pointless role portrayed by Silicon Valley’s Jimmy O Yang. Henry Golding (who you probably don’t know yet) is serviceable as the handsome and apparently magnetic Nick (he hangs out at the YMCA and borrows Rachel’s Netflix password so, like, he’s not one of those rich people). As is the case with most characters, we get a primer in his deal within the film’s early minutes, though nobody outside of Rachel really develops beyond their baseball card stats. Community vet Ken Jeong is, as almost always, underused, even if his daughter (played by rapper Akwafina) does provide some of the most organically funny moments of the film. Nico Santos (of NBC’s Superstore) feels misused as well, a very funny actor who gets

- LITERALLY NOTHING BAD TO SAY
Spike Lee’s newest is a film that should make you break down sobbing—dor the past, the present, and for the potential future, given this low point in human history. BlacKkKlansman so vividly and powerfully captures our attention, taking us right up to the brink of hope before abruptly pulling us back down to reality; where racism is very much alive and well, where former KKK grand wizard David Duke can appear publicly, without fear, where protesters are run down for daring to point out that Black Lives Matter and where non-white Americans struggle daily for their very humanity. America first? Fuck you. John David Washington (Ballers) is Ron Stallworth, the real-life Colorado Springs detective who, in 1979, infiltrated the ranks of a local KKK chapter by simply making phone calls to local white supremacists and even David Duke himself (Topher Grace).

“Hi, asshole.” (Note: That’s not an actual line from BlacKkKlansman.) Homecoming). It’s a fascinating bit of American history and the actual Stallworth even penned a book about it (Black Klansman: A Memoir)— though Lee’s version is dramaticized. Before now, Stallworth’s story was ultimately relegated to the trivia pile for most Americans. Hopefully this film changes that. Washington is electric as Stallworth, his lifelong desire to be a cop at odds with his burgeoning radicalism. Can change occur from the inside? Maybe so. Harrier wows as well, a strong black woman with a penchant for subtle vulnerability and a streak of well-earned rage. Even the white guys (some of ’em, anyhow) start to get it as best they can, but the racism rampant on the streets of Colorado Springs and within Stallworth’s department itself is shockingly casual— conditioned, maybe, but no less ugly. That casual hate grows bolder throughout the film, starting at something about how the Klan “is non-violent” and culminating in cross-burning and explosives among intense, heartbreaking, powerfully delivered lessons in black history. Corey Hawkins as Kwame Ture alone is worth watching. But it’s not all heavy doom and gloom. There is pain, shock and awe, yes, but artfully chosen moments of levity punctuate the more challenging elements and the editing and pacing are damn near perfect. And we should never look away, even if BlacKkKlansman proves hard to watch—especially for white people, and rightly so. If the events of Charlottesville or the similar re-rise of no-longer-afraid white supremacists haven’t clued you in to how the fight must continue, perhaps pop culture will. Either way, there’s a lot to learn and a lot to consider here thanks to Lee’s masterful filmmaking and the real Stallworth’s incredible achievements. (ADV) Regal, Violet Crown, R, 135 min.
MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT
+ THRILLINGLY OVER-THE-TOP
ACTION; (MOSTLY) MAGNETIC CAST - EVERY CLICHE IMAGINABLE
Mission: Impossible - Fallout, the franchise’s sixth installment, throws away coherency and realism, replacing these with palpable tension and absurd action pieces. Ghosts of Ethan Hunt’s (Tom Cruise) past come back to haunt him as a cache of plutonium is lost on his watch, and it’s up to the Impossible Missions Force (ugh) to combat a group of terrorists called The Apostles in retrieving it. Fans of the series will appreciate the gunplay, fistfights, mask-wearing and daredevil stunts provided by Cruise, anyone else will find a serviceable action flick that works OK for late summer. Cruise is loose—hydrated and unstoppable, remarkable for a 56-year-old actor. Henry Cavill (Man From UNCLE), meanwhile, looks as if he’s been sleeping in his car for the last few weeks. He’s so puffy, he can’t fully put his arms down. Ving Rhames is surprisingly soulful as Luther
Stickell, however, and his long-standing relationship with Cruise’s Ethan Hunt takes the forefront, further strengthening their 23-year bond. Elsewhere, Rebecca Ferguson (Life) has the most spectacular character entrance in the film, and although she is underused, she is easily the biggest scene-stealer. Simon Pegg further proves he belongs in the series with some of the best scenes coming from his familiarity with every single recurring character. Alec Baldwin shows up, too, basically playing himself, but Angela Bassett capably counters his forgiving-father archetype with a stern mother character as head of the CIA. Sean Harris, the stereotypical villain, growls and makes threats. An honorable mention does go to True Detective alum Michelle Monaghan as it was particularly nice to see her come back to the series. Christopher McQuarrie returns as well as series writer/director, following up his success with the fifth installment, Rogue Nation. McQuarrie’s directing style is competent enough as far as action scenes go, but between the too-frequent double crosses and an excess of cheesy lines (21 by this author’s rough count), his writing skills feel weak. The sets and cinematography simultaneously scream “pretty” and “fake.” Still, as we approach late summer, there are far worse choices. Fallout is as silly as it comes, but at least it isn’t a disappointment. (Matthew K Gutierrez) Regal, Violet Crown, PG-13, 147 min.

Week of September 12th
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Author Anne Carson describes part of her creative process in this way: “Sometimes I dream a sentence and write it down. It’s usually nonsense, but sometimes it seems a key to another world.” I suspect you might be able to benefit from using a comparable trick in the coming days. That’s why you should monitor any odd dreams, seemingly irrational impulses, or weird fantasies that arise in you. Although they may not be of any practical value in themselves, they could spur a train of thought that leads you to interesting breakthroughs.
one of her bulletins: “Stage 1. me: I’m the cutest thing in the world. Stage 2. me, two seconds later: no, I’m a freaking goblin. Stage 3. me, two seconds after that: I’m the cutest goblin in the world.” I’m guessing that many of you Libras have reached the end of your own personal version of Stage 2.

I hope these quotes provide you with helpful pointers, Leo. You now have the opportunity to cultivate a masterful version of simplicity. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your keynote is the Japanese word shizuka. According to photographer Masao Yamamoto, it means “cleansed, pure, clear, and untainted.” One of his artistic practices is to wander around forests looking in the soil for “treasures” that emanate shizuka. So in his definition, the term isn’t about being scrubbed or sanitized. Rather, he’s interested in pristine natural phenomena that are unspoiled by civilization. He regards them as food for his soul. I mention this, Virgo, because now is an excellent time for you to get big doses of people and places and things that are cleansed, pure, clear, and untainted.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stanley Kubrick made masterful films, but most of them bore me. I regard John Ashbery as a clever and innovative poet, but I’ve never been excited by his work. As for painter Mark Rothko, I recognize his talent and intelligence, but his art leaves me empty. The music of Nora Jones is pretty and technically impeccable, but it doesn’t move me. In the coming weeks, Pisces, I invite you to make the kinds of fine distinctions I’m describing here. It will be important for you to be faithful to your subjective responses to things, even as you maintain an objective perspective about them and treat them with respect.
