Obama order to hike overtime eligible

After months of campaigning in a sometimes bitter political contest, the three candidates in Santa Fe’s mayoral election showed Wednesday that a week’s time has eased the tensions. Newly installed Mayor Javier Gonzales cajoled and joked with City Councilors Patti Bushee and Bill Dimas during the first post-election meeting of the city’s governing body at City Hall. The moody was airy, considering that eight days earlier they were embroiled in a clash that Gonzales handily won.

Dimas, who during election-night remarks to supporters had called Gonzales “an outright liar,” good-naturedly joked with his former rival Wednesday. When Dimas urged audience members to cheer on The University of New Mexico Lobos in Thursday night’s Mountain West Conference men’s basketball tournament, Gonzales, who plans to remain a regent for his alma mater at New Mexico State University through the end of the year, thumped his gavel, and they both had a laugh. “We’ve put our differences aside,” Dimas said. “It’s not a problem.” Bushee, who like Dimas has two more years remaining in her council term, declared, “Once an election is over, you pull together and work together.

Kindergartners 13.7 percent 20 percent

By Barry Massey

The Associated Press

Gov. Susana Martinez signed a measure into law Wednesday to help avert possible reductions in a popular college scholarship program. The program relies on revenue from the state lottery, and cuts loomed because lottery proceeds haven’t kept pace with increases in college tuition. Nearly 18,000 New Mexico students receive the scholarships, which cover the full cost of tuition to attend a public college or university in the state. The state faced the prospect of trimming scholarship amounts without the changes approved by lawmakers and agreed upon by Martinez. About $19 million in annual liquor tax money will supplement the scholarship program for two years starting in 2015. Until that happens, a newly enacted state budget provides extra money to keep the program solvent. Currently, students who maintain a certain grade-point average can receive scholarships for up to eight semesters.

Official says poverty a factor in ‘painful’ figures By Robert Nott The New Mexican


hough overall obesity rates among third-graders in New Mexico have dropped over the past four years, the news isn’t so good for kids in Santa Fe Public Schools. Statewide, the obesity rate for third-graders was just under 20 percent in 2013, but based on data collected from about 130 students at two Santa Fe elementary schools, the rate for the district is nearly 33 percent. Cheri Dotson, head nurse for the school district, said the obesity figures are “painful” but not surprising in a poverty-stricken community. “The foods that fill kids up and are the least expensive are not necessarily the most nutritious,” she said. “Fruits and veggies cost more in the grocery stores. It’s a struggle for families to give their children healthy foods, even if they want to. … They may not be able to afford them.”

From left, Sweeney Elementary School second-graders Diana Guzman, Cristal Varela-Velta, Valeria Araiza, Cesar Gutierrez and Brian Chavez make healthy falafel, a Middle Eastern dish, right, during their Cooking with Kids class Wednesday with Anna Farrier. A new report says obesity among New Mexico’s third-graders has dropped by about 12 percent in four years, but in Santa Fe, about 33 percent remain obese.

The Health Department released data Tuesday reflecting the change in obesity rates for both kindergartners and third-graders — the only two grades it follows for its annual study, which it started in 2010. That report notes that while obesity levels for third-graders have dropped, kindergarten obesity levels across the state rose slightly, from 13.2 percent in 2010 to 13.7 percent in 2013.

The obesity rate for kindergartners in Santa Fe is close to 20 percent, again higher than the state average. Patty Morris, director of the Health Department’s Healthy Kids New Mexico program — which works within nine counties and four tribal communities in the state to support children in eating and living well — said the study of roughly

7,730 kindergartners and third-graders from around the state is “incredibly strong and accurate.” In each case, the department sends someone to each school to take weight and height measurements on every kindergartner and third-grade student between August and early November, she said.

WASHINGTON — For years, many Americans followed a simple career path: Land an entry-level job. Accept a modest wage. Gain skills. Leave eventually for a better-paying job. The workers benefited, and so did lower-wage retailers such as Wal-Mart: When its staffers left for better-paying jobs, they could spend more at its stores. And the U.S. economy gained, too, because more consumer spending fueled growth. Not so much anymore. Since the Great Recession began in late 2007, that path has narrowed because many of the next-tier jobs no longer exist. That means more lower-wage workers have to stay put. The resulting bottleneck is helping widen a gap between the richest Americans and everyone else.

“Some people took those jobs because they were the only ones available and haven’t been able to figure out how to move out of that,” Bill Simon, CEO of Wal-Mart U.S., acknowledged in an interview with The Associated Press. If Wal-Mart employees “can go to another company and another job and make more money and develop, they’ll be better,” Simon explained. “It’ll be better for the economy. It’ll be better for us as a business, to be quite honest, because they’ll continue to advance in their economic life.” Yet for now, the lower-wage jobs once seen as stepping stones are increasingly being held for longer periods by older, better-educated, more experienced workers. The trend extends well beyond WalMart, the nation’s largest employer, and

SAN FRANCISCO — Apple’s labor practices are under attack by two activist groups who contend the company makes its iPhones with a hazardous mix of chemicals that threaten the health of factory workers assembling the devices in China. The campaign began Wednesday with an online petition put together by China Labor Watch and Green America, an environmental protection group. If enough consumers sign the “Bad Apple” petition, the two groups hope to pressure the company into abandoning the use of two chemicals, benzene and n-hexane, in the production of the iPhone. In a statement, Apple pointed out that it has already stopped using many hazardous chemicals and says it ensures all remaining toxic substances comply with U.S. safety standards.

House OKs bill to sue president over laws WASHINGTON — Casting Barack Obama as a president run amok, the House voted on Wednesday for a bill that would expedite congressional lawsuits against the chief executive for failure to enforce federal laws. The vote was 233-181 in the Republican-led House as GOP lawmakers excoriated Obama for multiple changes to his 4-year-old health care law, steps he’s taken to allow young immigrants to remain in the United States and the administration’s resistance to defend the federal law banning gay marriage. Democrats countered that the legislation was merely election-year rhetoric to address a non-existent problem. The measure stands no chance in the Democratic-led Senate.

Study sheds light on peopling America Linguists have found evidence further illuminating the peopling of North America about 14,000 years ago. In 2008, Edward Vajda, a linguist at Western Washington University, said he had documented a relationship between Yeniseian, languages spoken along the Yenisei River in central Siberia, and Na-Dene. The Na-Dene languages are spoken in Alaska and western Canada, with two outliers in the American Southwest, Navajo and Apache. Two linguists, Mark A. Sicoli of Georgetown University and Gary Holton of the University of Alaska, have assessed the relationship of the two language families. In a paper published Wednesday in the journal PLoS One, they report their surprising finding that Na-Dene is not a descendant of Yeniseian. Rather, they say, both language families are descendants of some lost mother tongue. New Mexican wire services

CARACAS, Venezuela — A university student, a National Guard captain and a third man were shot to death in separate incidents Wednesday as antigovernment protests roiled the central Venezuelan city of Valencia. Three National Guardsmen and several protesters were wounded. Two of the deaths came in the opposition-dominated Isabelica neighborhood, where residents unhappy with the scarcity of basic items and rising unemployment from the closure of some businesses in the area have protested for weeks by blocking streets and throwing rocks at police. Valencia Mayor Miguel Cocchiola said a man was killed and six people wounded in Isabelica. The newspaper Notitarde de Valencia said the dead man’s cousin, Luis Acosta, identified him as 22-year-old student Jesus Enrique Acosta and said he was killed near his home by men on motorcycles, but it was unclear if the victim was participating in a protest. The opposition has accused the government of supporting armed civilian thugs who attack protests. The mayor later said through his Twitter account that another man, 42-year-old Guillermo Sánchez, also died from a gunshot wound in Isabelica. He said Sánchez was painting the front of his house when he was shot. Carabobo state Gov. Francisco Ameliach, who supports the socialist government of President Nicolas Maduro, announced via Twitter that National Guard Capt. Ramzor Ernesto Bracho also was killed in Valencia. The federal prosecutor’s office said another guardsman was wounded in that shooting. The office reported earlier that a lieutenant colonel and two guardsmen were wounded by bullets while clearing a barricade blocking a highway in the city. A month of student-led demonstrations in a number of Venezuelan cities has left at least 25 people dead, according to the government. Venezuelans fed up with inflation that reached 56 percent last year, long lines for buying some

items at grocery stores and one of the highest homicide rates in the world have joined students in protesting against the government. Wednesday’s death toll matched the highest single day total exactly one month after that mark was set Feb. 12. Maduro’s governing bloc, which easily won municipal elections in December, shows no sign of collapse. The president accuses the opposition of trying to instigate his overthrow, but his party controls the legislature and judiciary, retains the support of the military and counts as members the governors of all but three states.

After mentioning the Valencia violence to a group of students at a government rally, Maduro said he would convene a special meeting of his security cabinet Wednesday evening. “I’m going to take drastic measures with all of these sectors that are attacking and killing the Venezuelan people,” he said. The UNASUR group of South American nations said Wednesday that it will send a commission of foreign ministers to Venezuela in April to encourage dialogue on resolving the political conflict. They made the decision during a meeting Wednesday in Chile’s capital.

by the White House to try to convince voters that Democrats are looking out for the middle class. White House officials hope the focus on lifting workers’ pay will translate into support for Democratic congressional candidates this fall. Under current federal regulations, workers who are deemed executive, administrative or professional employees can be denied overtime pay under a so-called white-collar exemption. Under the new rules that Obama is seeking, fewer salaried employees could be blocked from receiving overtime, a move that would potentially shift billions of dollars’ worth of corporate income into the pockets of workers. Currently, employers are prohibited from denying time-anda-half overtime pay to any salaried worker who makes less than $455 per week. Obama’s directive would significantly increase that salary level. In addition, Obama will try to change rules that allow employers to define which workers are exempt from receiving overtime based on the kind of work they perform.

Obama’s authority to act comes from his ability as president to revise the rules that carry out the Fair Labor Standards Act, which Congress originally passed in 1938. Bush and previous presidents used similar tactics at times to work around opponents in Congress. The proposed new regulations would increase the number of people who qualify for overtime and continue Obama’s fight against what he says is a crisis of economic inequality in the country. Changes to the regulations will be subject to public comment before final approval by the Labor Department, and it is possible that strong opposition could cause Obama to scale back his proposal. Cecilia Muñoz, the director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, said the effort was part of Obama’s pledge to help workers thrive. “We need to fix the system so folks working hard are getting compensated fairly,” she said on Tuesday evening. “That’s why we are jump-starting this effort.” The overtime action by Obama is part of a broader election-year effort Fax: 984-1785 Legal ads: 986-3000

At least 4 die in NYC blast More than a dozen missing after Harlem buildings flattened By Jake Pearson and Jonathan Lemire The Associated Press

NEW YORK — A gas leak triggered an earthshaking explosion that flattened two East Harlem apartment buildings Wednesday, killing at least four people, injuring more than 50 and leaving more than a dozen others missing. One tenant said residents had complained repeatedly in recent weeks about “unbearable” gas smells. By evening, rescue workers finally began the search for victims amid the broken bricks, splintered wood and mangled metal after firefighters spent most of the day dousing the flames. Heavy trucks arrived to clear the mountain of debris where the two five-story buildings stood. The fiery blast on Park Avenue at 116th Street, not far from the edge of Central Park, erupted about 9:30 a.m., around 15 minutes after a neighboring resident reported smelling gas, authorities said. Con Edison said it immediately sent utility workers to check out the report, but they didn’t arrive until it was too late. The explosion shattered windows a block away, rained debris onto elevated commuter railroad tracks close by, cast a plume of smoke over the skyline, and sent people running into the streets. “It felt like an earthquake had rattled my whole building,” said Waldemar Infante, a porter who was working in a basement nearby. “There were glass shards everywhere on the ground.” Police said two women believed to be in their 40s were killed. At least three of the injured were children; one, a 15-year-old boy, was reported in critical condition with burns, broken bones and internal injuries. Most of the other victims’ injuries were minor and included cuts and scrapes. Fire officials said more than a dozen people were unaccounted for, but cautioned that some may not have been in the buildings. A tenant in one of the destroyed buildings, Ruben Borrero, said residents had complained to the landlord about smelling gas as recently as Tuesday, a day before the disaster. A few weeks ago, Borrero said, city fire officials were called about the odor, which he said was so bad that a tenant on the top floor broke open the door to the roof for ventilation. “It was unbearable,” said Borrero, who lived in a second-floor apartment with his mother and sister, all of whom were away at the time of the explosion. “You walk in the front door and you want to walk directly out.” The fire department said a check of its records found no instances in the past month in which tenants of the two buildings reported gas odors or leaks. Edward Foppiano, a Con Ed senior vice president, said there

was only one gas odor complaint on record with the utility from either address, and it was last May, at the building next door to Borrero’s. It was a small leak in customer piping and was fixed, he said. The block was last checked on Feb. 28 as part of a regular leak survey, and no problems were detected, Foppiano said. One of the side-by-side buildings had a piano store on the first floor, the other a storefront church. City records show that the building Borrero lived in was owned by Kaoru Muramatsu, proprietor of the piano business. A number listed for Muramatsu rang unanswered. Records at the Department of Housing Preservation and Development indicate the agency responded to complaints from a tenant and cited Muramatsu in January for a broken outlet, broken plaster, bars over a fire escape, a missing window guard and missing carbon monoxide and smoke detectors. City building records don’t show any work in progress at either address, but the building owned by the Spanish Christian Church had obtained permits and installed 120 feet of gas pipe last June. Con Ed said it remains to be seen whether the leak was in a company main or in customerinstalled inside plumbing. The gas main that serves the area was made of plastic and cast iron, and the iron dated to 1887, Foppiano said. “Age is not in and of itself an issue with cast iron,” he said, noting that Con Edison has a cast iron replacement program and the pipe was not slated to be removed in the next threeyear period. A National Transportation Safety Board team arrived in the evening to investigate. The agency investigates pipeline accidents in addition to transportation disasters. Just before the explosion, a resident from a building next to the two that were destroyed reported smelling gas inside his apartment and thought the odor

might be coming from outside, Con Ed spokesman Bob McGee said. Con Ed dispatched two crews two minutes after the 9:15 a.m. call came in, McGee said. But they didn’t get there in time. The tragedy brought the neighborhood to a standstill as police set up barricades to keep residents away. Thick, acrid smoke made people’s eyes water. Some wore surgical masks, while others held their hands or scarves over their faces. Witnesses said the blast was so powerful it knocked groceries off store shelves. The Metro-North commuter railroad, which serves 280,000 riders a day in New York and Connecticut, suspended all service to and from Grand Central for much of the day while the debris was removed from its tracks, the structural integrity of the elevated structure was checked, and test trains were run past the explosion site to see if vibrations would endan-

ger the rescue effort. Service resumed late in the afternoon. A resident of the one of the buildings, Eusebio Perez, heard news of the explosion and hurried back from his job as a piano technician. “There’s nothing left,” he said. “Just a bunch of bricks and wood.” He added: “I only have what I’m wearing. I have to find a place to stay for tonight and organize what’s going to be my next steps.” A Red Cross center was set up at a public school, where about 50 people had gathered, including some who were searching for loved ones. The explosion destroyed everything Borrero’s family owned. Borrero said he assumes his 5-year-old terrier, Nina, was killed.

Wage: Retail, service sector jobs increasing Continued from Page A-1 is reverberating across the U.S. economy. It’s partly why average inflation-adjusted income has declined 9 percent for the bottom 40 percent of households since 2007, even as incomes for the top 5 percent now slightly exceed where they were when the recession began late that year, according to the Census Bureau. Research shows that occupations that once helped elevate people from the minimum wage into the middle class have disappeared during the past three recessions dating to 1991. One such category includes bookkeepers and executive secretaries, with average wages of $16.54 an hour, according to the Labor Department. Since the mid-1980s, the economy has shed these middleincome jobs — a trend that’s become more pronounced with the recoveries that have followed each subsequent recession, according to research by Henry Siu, an economist at the University of British Columbia, and Duke University economist Nir Jaimovich. That leaves many workers remaining in jobs as cashiers earning an average of $9.79 an hour, or in retail sales at roughly $10.50 — jobs that used to be entry points to higher-paying work. Hourly pay at WalMart averages $8.90, according to the site (Wal-Mart disputes that figure; it says its pay for hourly workers averages $11.83.) Since the Great Recession began, the share of U.S workers employed by the retail and restaurant sector has risen from 16.5 percent to 17.1 percent. “It really has contributed to this widening of inequality,” Siu said. The shift has injected new pressures into the economy. Older and better-educated retail and fast-food workers have become more vocal in pressing for raises. Labor unions helped launch protests last year against such employers as Wal-Mart, McDonald’s and Burger King. Fewer teenagers are staffing cash registers, prepping meals or stocking shelves, according to government data. Replacing them are adults, many of whom are struggling with the burdens of college debt or child rearing. Some are on the verge of what was once envisioned as retirement years. They are people like Richard Wilson, 27, in Chicago. More than 2½ years ago, a Wal-Mart store manager spotted Wilson cleaning the cafeteria at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va. A double major in biblical studies and business communications, Wilson had $3,000 in tuition due and had maxed out on student loans. He said the recruiter suggested that a management job could eventually be within reach for him because, “Wal-Mart is where people’s dreams become a reality.” Wilson first worked at a Wal-Mart near college before returning to his Chicago hometown without a degree but with $50,000 in student debt and another job at a boutique Wal-Mart specializing in groceries. Today, Wilson earns $9.45 an hour at that Wal-Mart and lives on the city’s western edge with his grandmother. He boards a bus most mornings at 3:30 a.m. and arrives for his 5 a.m. shift in the more upscale neighborhood of Lakeview East. He has applied for promotions. So far, no success. If he had the money for a ring and a wedding, Wilson said he would propose to his girlfriend. Last year, 17.4 million Americans between ages 25 and 64 earned less than $10.10 an hour, the minimum wage proposed by President Barack Obama (The current federal minimum is $7.25.) That’s equal to an income of nearly $19,000 for a full-time employee — less than half the median pay of a U.S. worker. The share of Americans in their prime earning years who earn the equivalent of $10.10 an hour or less, adjusted for inflation, has risen to 13.4 percent from 10.4 percent in 1979, according to government data analyzed by John Schmitt, a senior economist at the progressive Center for Economic and Policy Research. Nearly a third of low-wage employees last year had had some college education. An additional 10 percent had graduated.

By contrast, in 1979 less than 25 percent of low-wage employees had college experience. Most had not completed high school. For millions of lower-wage workers, more schooling hasn’t led to higher pay. “Where you start out in terms of wages helps to predict where you move over time,” Schmitt said. That principle has become an alarming reality for many. Only 5.5 percent of people with jobs at the fast-food chain Wendy’s will earn more than $70,000 in today’s dollars at that company, based on a review last year of 8 million resumes by the analytics firm Just 8 percent of Home Depot employees will be so fortunate. For Macy’s, 9.4 percent. By contrast, more than a quarter of Amazon staffers will exceed $70,000 a year. The ratio is even better for Verizon and AT&T workers. A majority of Ford employees will achieve that income at least once in their career. Just 10 percent of Wal-Mart workers will. Wal-Mart promotes itself as a source of opportunity, and in some cases, that’s proved true. Over 11 years, for example, Tonya Jones rose from staffing a checkout line to managing a section of a Wal-Mart supercenter in Hendersonville, Tenn. Jones, 41, said her pay exceeds $15 an hour — enough with scholarships, including one from Wal-Mart, to help put her daughter through college. Asked whether she represents an average Wal-Mart worker, Jones said opportunities at the company boil down to personal choices. “I want to be No. 1,” she said. “I am very competitive.” That said, the data show why it’s harder now for workers to rise into higher-paying fields despite an economic recovery now nearly 5 years old. About 1.9 million office and administrative support jobs were lost to the Great Recession, according to government data. That includes 714,370 executive secretaries with annual incomes averaging $50,220. And 252,240 fewer bookkeepers with average incomes of $36,640. By comparison, the number of lowerwage jobs increased: The Labor Department says restaurants added 777,800 jobs since the recession began, general merchandise stores 345,600. “You see adults moving into these relatively generic services [jobs] that don’t require expertise, just dexterity, attention and showing up,” said MIT economist David Autor. “You want people to be in jobs that have good trajectories. I can imagine you only get so efficient as a checkout clerk or a stocker.” Wal-Mart customer service manager Janet Sparks of Baker, La., trained as a bookkeeper. She owned a video rental store and worked for an accountant, a nuclear power plant, a McDonald’s and a bank before joining Wal-Mart about eight years ago. Sparks, 53, said Wal-Mart once offered a path to the middle class with merit raises of up to $2 an hour. The company ended those raises, while making more employees eligible for bonuses based on a store’s overall performance. It also introduced

what’s called “optimal scheduling” to match employees with expected sales. It can mean that workers whose shift ended at 11 p.m. might have to begin their next shift at 7 a.m., Sparks said. Sparks said the erratic schedule makes it hard for employees to earn additional income from a second job. She joined WalMart in 2005 with the expectation that the since-canceled merit pay raises would eventually let her clear $21 an hour. She instead received smaller raises and now earns $12.40. Wal-Mart said it began to change its bonus system in 2006. It now pays bonuses of up to $2,500 to some employees based on their store’s performance. And it says its scheduling system considers the preferences and availability of employees and gives them three weeks’ notice of their work calendars. Other retailers have also adopted optimal scheduling. Starbucks was sued by a former employee over its system, according to Massachusetts court records. Starbucks said on its corporate site that the “goal” of optimal scheduling “was to provide the most working hours to those partners who were available to do so.” Retail industry executives argue that stronger economic growth would make it possible to pay higher wages. The economy grew just 1.9 percent last year, well below its post-World War II average of 3.2 percent. “For generations of Americans, it was an entry-level wage that got you into a position in which you could gain skills and experience and then get connected to the workforce and move up,” said Matthew Shay, CEO of the National Retail Federation. “The problem now is the economy is not growing rapidly enough to create those other opportunities.” Simon’s suggestion that many Wal-Mart employees might be better off leaving for other jobs surprised Wal-Mart cashier Joanna Lopez. A 26-year-old single mother, she owns no car and lives with her church pastor near Fremont, Calif. She collects food stamps and receives insurance through California’s version of Medicaid. Lopez started at Wal-Mart as a temp in August 2011, after being unable to land a hospital job with her associate’s degree. Her pay has risen from $8 an hour to $9.20, after she moved from part time to full time. The suggestion by a Wal-Mart executive that some employees might be staying too long offended her. “To me, that’s an utter humiliation,” Lopez said. “How can you sit there and have management say that we should find other jobs because this place is ‘no bueno?’ ” Wal-Mart spokeswoman Katie Cody said that its employees have “endless opportunities for advancement” and that “management is not saying that people should find other jobs.” “But when the economy is doing well, people tend to move around more,” Cody said. “If people were moving around more, that would be a better indicator that the economy is doing well, which is good for our customers, our associates and our business.”

Signs: Line-item veto fixes wording error Continued from Page A-1 That will be trimmed to seven semesters for new scholarship recipients, as well as some students already receiving the aid. The financial fix is only temporary. Lawmakers are expected to continue to debate whether to cap scholarship amounts in the future or change student eligibility to control rising program costs. The governor used her line-item veto powers to resolve a wording error in the measure that could have forced students to wait an extra semester to get a scholarship. Wednesday was the deadline for the governor to sign or veto bills passed by the Legislature during its recent 30-day session. Martinez signed measures to: u Prevent high school graduation requirements from changing for students once they enter the ninth grade. The new law takes effect immediately and also per-

mits marching band, athletics and other classes to meet physical education requirements for high school students. Lawmakers approved the changes in response to a Public Education Department decision to restrict what would meet the physical education requirement. u Require counties to contribute $26 million a year to a program to help nearly 30 mostly rural hospitals cover health care for poor New Mexicans. The law allows counties to increase their gross receipts taxes by one-twelfth of a percent to cover what must be contributed to the state. The revenue from counties will be used to match available federal money and is projected to generate nearly $150 million for health care. Lawmakers had approved the county funding for three years, but Martinez vetoed the time limit language, making it a permanent requirement. The governor complained that lawmak-

ers didn’t require counties to contribute enough, and she directed an administration agency to look for extra state money that could help secure more federal dollars for hospital funding. u Create five additional judgeships to help deal with case backlogs. There will be an additional Magistrate Court judge in Doña Ana County and judgeships in the First Judicial District of Santa Fe, Los Alamos and Rio Arriba counties; the 2nd District of Bernalillo County; the 5th District of Chaves, Eddy and Lea counties; and the 13th District in Sandoval County. u Phase in school class-size limits that temporarily were lifted in some districts in recent years because of budget problems.

Both Morris and Dotson said kids are eating healthier meals with more fruits and vegetables in schools, thanks to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s School Lunch program. But they said more can be done to address the problem, including educating kids and their parents about preparing and eating healthy food at home. Morris said encouraging physical exercise can make a difference. She suggested schools open up their playgrounds during off-hours so children can play. She also said bike and walking paths built around schools will encourage kids to get out and do more. Jane Stacey, education director for Cooking With Kids, a local nonprofit that teaches children in 13 Santa Fe elementary schools to cook healthy meals with fresh ingredients, said when children begin tasting fruits and vegetables in those courses, they are more likely to choose them when they visit the school cafeteria later that day. The group recently worked with a Middle Eastern unit of cooking, in which children learned how to make tomato and cucumber salads, low-fat falafels with whole-wheat sesame bread and yogurt, among other dishes.

The goal is to get youngsters “to explore and get excited” about these foods, with the hope they will also take the recipes home to their families to try there. Though she said she was not surprised to hear that Santa Fe students ranked above the average when it comes to obesity, she said statistics “are just one lens with which to view a situation or problem.” In Santa Fe, the state collected weight data from 72 students at a south-side elementary school and from about 60 at a north-side elementary school. The southside obesity ratio was almost 42 percent, while the northside group was 22 percent. The district has about 1,240 third-graders. If the state and other interested parties do not do more to curb the number of children who are overweight or obese, “we’re in trouble,” Morris said, since obesity and being overweight are early indicators of heart disease and diabetes, among other illnesses. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2012 more than one-third of children and adolescents were overweight or obese. Contact Robert Nott at 986-3021 or rnott@

Council: Ives is new mayor pro tem Continued from Page A-1 to still be part of it.” Gonzales expressed the same sentiment, but passed over both of his mayoral opponents when picking his mayor pro tem. Instead, he named District 2 Councilor Peter Ives to preside over meetings and carry out ceremonial duties in his absence. “I wanted a pro tem who had experience on the council,” Gonzales said of Ives, who was first elected two years ago. The new mayor also said he strove for geographic diversity. As a south-side resident, Gonzales said, he wanted to add a northeast-side component to council leadership, which Ives brings. “We also agree philosophically on the direction of the city when it comes to addressing economic development, the environment and education,” Gonzales said of Ives. “I think he’s got that personality to work with the council to build a collaborative environment, and I think tonight was a good start.” Ives said serving as mayor pro tem was a topic he and Gonzales had discussed in the days preceding the appointment. “I certainly confirmed to him that if I was his selection, I would be privileged and honored to accept,” said Ives, who replaces former Councilor Rebecca Wurzburger as mayor pro tem. Gonzales appointed newly re-elected Councilor Carmichael Dominguez as chairman of the Finance Committee, whose members will include Councilors Ron Trujillo and Chris Rivera and council newcomers Joseph

Maestas and Signe Lindell. Trujillo will chair the Public Works Committee, whose members will include Dominguez, Lindell, Rivera and Dimas. Bushee will continue to chair the Bicycle and Trails Committee, and Dimas will chair the Public Safety Committee, both of which include non-council members. Along with Ives and Dimas, Bushee and Dimas will serve on the Public Utilities Committee, which will be chaired by Rivera. Gonzales said his appointments weren’t a snub to Dimas or Bushee, a councilor for the past two decades. He said he intends to consult with them often about their areas of expertise and won’t allow their recent political competition to bleed into the council chambers. “The voters expected us on election night to put the election behind us, and we have,” Gonzales said. The council’s first formal action was to unanimously approve a 90-day extension of City Manager Brian Snyder’s contract. The council also unanimously approved a four-year reappointment for City Clerk Yolanda Vigil. Keeping with the jovial theme of the new council’s first meeting, Dimas concluded the appointment portion of the meeting by addressing Gonzales from his longtime perch at the east end of the dais. “Thank you for allowing me to stay in my seat,” he said.

Pearce: Study validates concerns over SunZia transmission line ALBUQUERQUE — A Massachusetts Institute of Technology study on the potential impacts of the SunZia transmission line on White Sands Missile Range validates concerns over the project, a New Mexico congressman said Tuesday. Speaking to reporters on a conference call, Republican Rep. Steve Pearce said the study proves key U.S. Department of Defense concerns that the proposed 500-mile transmission project could interfere with missile tests. “The last thing New Mexico wants to do is shutdown 30 percent” of the missile range’s mission, which the study showed would occur, Pearce said. “This would impact the missions of Holloman Air Force base as well and we could lose them both.” The Associated Press

I would do anything for my mom, but I could use a little help. New Mexico’s legislature has taken the first step in supporting our friends and neighbors caring for an aging parent or loved one. Family caregivers provide an invaluable resource, helping seniors stay at home and out of the hospital or an expensive institution. But these caregivers often lack the resources and support they need to safely care for their loved ones. So, we are thankful that our legislature has agreed to create a task force to assess the needs of family caregivers, and generate awareness for the great service they provide to New Mexico and our seniors.

Go to to help us thank legislators for supporting House Joint Memorial 4 – and share your caregiving story.

Signals on radar puzzle officials in hunt for jet Thousands scan images for clues

Search continues for missing jet At least eight nations are searching 35,800 square miles to the east and west of Peninsular Malaysia. Government officials asked India to join the search near the Andaman Sea, suggesting the jetliner might have reached those waters.

LONGMONT, Colo. — About 600,000 people have scanned satellite images from DigitalGlobe Inc. for clues to the fate of a missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner, the company said this week. Users of the website can tag images if they see wreckage, life rafts, oil slicks or other evidence. DigitalGlobe is calling it a crowdsourcing campaign to help search crews. The company plans daily updates of the images on the search website, Shay Har-Noy, DigitalGlobe’s senior director for geospatial big data, call the response “quite overwhelming.” U.S. government agencies have access to DigitalGlobe’s images as well, he said. Har-Noy said DigitalGlobe started getting emails from interested individuals shortly after the plane disappeared, asking for satellite images they could examine for signs of the plane. DigitalGlobe, based in Longmont, Colo., has five imaging satellites in orbit.

the country. Rodzali said interceptors were not scrambled because the unidentified plane appeared to be a civilian aircraft and was not seen as hostile. For days, official statements had put the last known contact with Flight 370 almost an hour earlier, at about 1:30 a.m. The aircraft’s transponders, which automatically transmit identifying information and some other data about the plane, including altitude, apparently ceased to function at 1:21 a.m.; after that, radar screens would show the plane only as an unidentified blip. Certain weather conditions, and even flocks of birds, can occasionally cause radar blips that may be mistaken for unidentified aircraft. An American aviation official noted that the statement from Malaysian officials on Wednesday indicated that they were

still searching for the plane on both sides of the peninsula. If the plane did turn west as the radar blips suggest, the official said, there would be no reason to keep searching on the eastern side. Even so, two U.S. destroyers, the Kidd and the Pinckney, continued to patrol in the eastern waters, along with ships from China, Malaysia, Vietnam and other countries. In all, 42 ships and 39 aircraft from at least 12 countries are taking part in the search operations, according to Hishammuddin, who is also Malaysia’s acting transportation minister. “The Gulf of Thailand is pretty much saturated at this point,” said Cmdr. William Marks, the spokesman for the U.S. 7th Fleet. “We’re now going over the same areas.” A Chinese state science agency posted satellite photo-

graphs on its website Wednesday that appeared to show three large objects floating in the South China Sea off Vietnam, not far from the aircraft’s planned flight path; the agency said the images were taken Sunday. It was not clear whether they had any significance for the search. In recent days, a number of reports have emerged of possible debris from the plane in the Gulf of Thailand or the South China Sea, but on closer inspection, the objects — including an oil slick, a wooden raft and the lid of a large crate — have been found to be unrelated. The Malaysian government has come under fire for releasing incomplete and sometimes inaccurate or contradictory information about the aircraft and the progress of the search. When news of the military radar traces surfaced Tuesday in

a Malaysian newspaper article quoting Rodzali, other senior officials denied the report. Though Malaysia generally has good relations with China, the home country of most of the passengers on the missing plane, the confusion and crossed signals are drawing increasing criticism from there. The Global Times, a nationalistleaning Chinese newspaper controlled by the Communist Party, published a commentary Wednesday taking Malaysia to task for failing to release information in a timely and reliable manner. Dozens of Chinese reporters are in Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, looking for answers, as are many relatives of passengers.

JERUSALEM — After years of heated public debate and political wrangling, Israel’s Parliament on Wednesday approved landmark legislation that will eventually eliminate exemptions from compulsory military service for ultra-Orthodox students enrolled in seminaries. The issue has become a social and political lightning rod in a country where most Israeli Jewish 18-year-olds are subjected to compulsory military service for up to three years. Many Israelis, who see conscription as part of a deeper culture war between the secular and modern Orthodox Jews and the ultra-Orthodox, have been demanding a more equitable sharing of the responsibilities of citizenship and voted in last year’s elections on that basis. Yair Lapid, the leader of the centrist Yesh Atid, one of the parties that promoted the new legislation in the governing coalition, wrote on his Facebook page soon after the vote, “To the 543,458 citizens of Israel who elected Yesh Atid: Today you have passed the equal sharing of the burden.” But the law, approved 65-1, is unlikely to allay the acrimony about ultra-Orthodox recruitment and might even exacerbate tensions. The opposition in the 120-seat Parliament, the Knesset, boycotted the vote in an uproar over what it has called unfair political dealing within the coalition as it moved to pass military service legislation and two other contentious bills this week. Ultra-Orthodox leaders have reacted with fury and are threatening to roll back the slow, voluntary trend that was already

underway in their community toward military and national service. And nongovernmental monitoring groups immediately petitioned Israel’s Supreme Court, seeking to overturn the new law on the grounds that it does not go far enough in enforcing the principle of equality. For one thing, the law includes an adjustment period of three years in which increased service will be encouraged but not mandatory. It also gives the ultraOrthodox, known as Haredim, or those who fear God, a choice between military service and civilian national service, unlike ordinary recruits, and it allows students at seminaries, or yeshivas, to defer service for several years beyond the age of 18. “The whole idea that the law promotes equality is not really convincing,” said professor Mordechai Kremnitzer, vice president of research at the Israel Democracy Institute, an independent research organization here, and former dean of the law faculty at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. By the end of the three-year period, Kremnitzer said, there will be new elections and a new government, possibly including Haredi parties, “and the whole law would become thin air.” Given the delay, he said, “It is questionable whether the Knesset accomplished anything.” Although the law stops far short of enforcing conscription for all Haredi young men, ultraOrthodox leaders are outraged over its more symbolic aspects. They argue that Torah study should be a priority in Israel, a country that defines itself as the Jewish state, and that the yeshiva students perform a spiritual duty that is crucial for

the enlistment of the ultra-Orthodox minority and its integration into the work force as crucial for the country’s economy and viability. The ultra-Orthodox sector now makes up about 10 percent of the population of 8 million, but favoring large families, it is expanding rapidly. The roots of the tensions date to the founding of the state of Israel in 1948. David BenGurion, the first prime minister, granted full-time yeshiva students state financing and exemption from army service to refill the ranks of Torah scholarship decimated in the Holocaust.

He said the Haredim “will not forget or forgive” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his associates for what he called the affront to the Haredi public and to Torah study. Until a year ago, Netanyahu and the Haredi parties were political allies. Mainstream Israelis have displayed growing resentment over benefits granted for decades to members of the ultra-Orthodox community who chose full-time Torah study. Many Israelis view

LOCAL NEWS Council OKs compromise on Defouri bridge Councilors nix H-board ruling, favor replacing aging structure with new span By Patrick Malone The New Mexican

The Santa Fe City Council gave the goahead Wednesday to replace the aging Defouri Street Bridge with a new span that will feature sidewalks on both sides of the structure — despite objections from residents who say the project will wreck the scale of their historic neighborhood. The council’s decision overturned a ruling by the city’s Historic Districts Review Board,

15,000 enrolled in N.M. health exchange

which found the narrow bridge to be historically significant in the downtown neighborhood and authorized a new structure just 3 feet wider than the current 30-foot bridge with just one sidewalk. The city Public Works Department appealed that ruling to the council. Instead of pushing for its original plan to add 5-foot sidewalks on each side of the bridge, the department proposed a compromise: the 4-foot sidewalks that the council authorized. City staff said it’s rare for city departments to appeal historic board decisions. As approved by councilors, the new Defouri Street Bridge will feature two 14-foot-wide traffic lanes with the two 4-foot sidewalks.

Arguing in favor of the appeal, Eric Martinez, the city’s director of roadways and trails, emphasized the need to comply with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act and safety concerns about the narrow bridge. About a dozen citizens spoke during the hearing, representing a mix of neighbors pleading to preserve the character of the neighborhood and other residents worried that a new, narrow bridge would carry the same safety risks as the current design. Old Santa Fe Association President John Penn LaFarge, who argued against the expansion, said engineers are good at solving problems but tend to lose the context of their projects — such as how the Defouri Street

State far behind goal of 50,000 enrollees By Patrick Malone The New Mexican

By the end of February, more than 15,000 New Mexicans had enrolled in insurance plans through the state’s online marketplace created under the federal Affordable Care Act, according to statistics released Tuesday. But less than three weeks remain in 2014’s open-enrollment period, and the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange is far short of its enrollment goal of 50,000. Originally, officials expected up to 83,000 New Mexicans to get insurance through the exchange. But hopes were lowered because individuals in the state are passed on to the federal website, which sputtered to get off the ground last fall. Technical difficulties on the federal website slowed participation. Still, administrators of the state exchange remain optimistic. “We are encouraged by the wave of interest we have recently seen from people seeking more information on how to enroll before the March 31 deadline,” said exchange spokeswoman Debra Hammer. “There has been a massive spike this week in the number of people calling our call center, visiting our website,, and the number of appointments being made with our agents, health care guides and other community partners. Given this trajectory, we believe that we will see many more thousands of New Mexicans with health coverage at the end of open enrollment.” Except for a handful of groups who are exempt — including people with pre-existing conditions who require high-risk policies and Native Americans eligible for service through an Indian Health Services provider — anyone who hasn’t enrolled in an insurance plan by the end of the month will be prohibited from enrolling through the exchange until 2015 and will face tax penalties. At its last meeting, the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange Board discussed seeking an extended enrollment period that would remain open throughout the year. But that would require federal approval, and discussions about extending the enrollment period have been so preliminary that no action is likely to be taken before the enrollment window closes. The state exchange has stepped up its marketing campaign in recent weeks to target groups that have been slow to enroll in insurance plans, including young, healthy people who the federal health care overhaul aimed to add in large numbers to the insurance risk pool.

A Santa Fe County grand jury has cleared a state police agent in the shooting death of a 22-year-old man during an exchange of gunfire at an Española apartment. Rogelio Cisneros-Chavez had cocaine and marijuana in his system when he shot state police Agent Joey Gallegos in the gut as officers tried to serve an arrest warrant, authorities say. Gallegos told investigators the young man kept pulling the trigger, but the firearm jammed, and Gallegos opened fire with his M-16 rifle. “There was absolutely no warning whatsoever for Agent Gallegos that he was about to be shot,” District Attorney Angela “Spence” Pacheco said. “If the gun had not jammed, Agent Gallegos may not be here today.” Those were among details Pacheco made public during a Wednesday news conference to announce the grand jury finding that the Oct. 24, 2013, shooting death was a justifiable homicide. It took a while for the grand jury to get the case, she said, because Gallegos was recovering from his injuries. Police said Cisneros-Chavez was a suspect in a larceny investigation and was wanted on an active arrest warrant when officers went to the Las Lomas Apartments, where Cisneros-Chavez’s 20-year-old wife, Heather Romero, lived. Pacheco said the woman was pregnant with Cisneros-Chavez’s child and at the time was about a week away from giving birth. Officers also discovered the woman’s grandmother and a 2-year-old child at the scene. Pacheco made public an audio recording from a device worn by Gallegos, which starts with the sounds of officers pounding on the apartment door and saying multiple times that they were with the state police. After about a minute, someone comes to the door. Gallegos, a member of the state police tactical team, asks, “Is Rogelio here?” (No response is heard, but Pacheco said at that point, the grandmother in the apartment pointed down a hallway.) Gallegos walks in that direction, while other officers tell family members to move aside. A few seconds later, Gallegos calls out for Cisneros-Chavez and identifies himself as state police. A second later, a single gunshot rings out. A woman shouts, “Oh my God!” Two seconds of silence follow. (Pacheco said that’s when Gallegos was shot in the stomach, just below his bulletproof vest.) A burst of gunshots from Gallegos’ M-16 quickly breaks the silence. The sound of the 14 shots lingers past the six seconds or so that it takes to fire them. (Bullets had whizzed through walls and even set off a smoke alarm.) Shortly after, Gallegos calmly says, “I have been shot.” He repeats that statement several times as he calls his wife to let her know he was injured, and then again when he calls his parents. He tells them not to

Martinez kills bill designed to reform horse racing Governor says SB 252 would weaken State Racing Commission By Milan Simonich The New Mexican

Gov. Susana Martinez on Wednesday vetoed a bill aimed at reforming the horse-racing industry, saying it would not advance the state’s efforts to punish cheats or curb doping of animals. The bill cleared the House of Representatives on a 65-0 vote and passed the Senate 41-0, but Martinez said she was not satisfied with it. She vetoed Senate Bill 252 because she said it would weaken the State Racing Commission, taking away some of its authority in investigating and punishing rogue trainers, owners and jockeys. Instead, Martinez said, the bill proposed to give new powers to a hearing officer, who would have

“less accountability.” “In addition, creating a right to appeal in statute could result in greater delays in prosecution and in imposing the penalties that the commission has worked so hard to adopt,” Martinez said in her veto message. Sen. Mary Kay Papen, who sponsored the bill, said in a telephone interview that she was disappointed because her proposal would have helped clean up racing in New Mexico. Papen, D-Las Cruces, said one of her concerns is that appointed members of the Racing Commission may not have the time or inclination to dig into doping violations. She said she knew of instances in which commissioners began reviewing a case the same day it was heard. “We would have had a more diligent and more professional process,” had the bill empowering a hearing officer been signed into law, Papen said. New Mexico’s racing industry has

been among the most scrutinized in America since a New York Times investigation in 2012. The Times concluded that five of the seven U.S. tracks with the highest rates of horse deaths and breakdowns were in New Mexico. In addition, the story pinpointed drugs, deception and differing regulations from state to state as industrywide problems that endanger horses and jockeys. Numerous reforms in New Mexico have since been implemented, including more money for drug testing horses. Vince Mares, executive director of the State Racing Commission, said neither he nor his members supported Papen’s bill because it would not make a difference in keeping violators away from tracks. Mares said the commission already uses a hearing officer in cases in which owners or trainers are accused of giving a horse performance-enhancing drugs. But if someone licensed

to work at a track is judged guilty of doping violations in the administrative proceeding, the offender typically appeals to state District Court. “The constitutional right to appeal can lead to a temporary restraining order stopping sanctions. Unfortunately, the courts take a year or two years on an appeal, and any sanctions can be stopped during that time,” Mares said in an interview. He said this problem was not unique to New Mexico or its racing industry. The same circumstance occurs in jurisdictions across the country. Mares said Papen’s bill could have broadened hearings and appeals to other sorts of cases, such as disqualifications in individual races for nondrug-related infractions. Meantime,

Bridge: Built in 1930s; reconstructed in 1959 Continued from Page A-8 Bridge fits into the neighborhood around it. “The context there is the preservation of the scale of the bridge and the scale of the neighborhood,” he said. But representatives of the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe and others said the council’s decision should be driven by safety, and they supported the two-sidewalk design. Christopher Benson, whose teenage son survived being run over by a truck while riding his bicycle on Guadalupe Street three years ago, urged councilors to improve bicyclist and pedestrian protection on the bridge. “The bridge itself is not a historically significant structure. It’s not a particularly useful or impressive artifact of Santa Fe’s history,” Benson said. “It’s a functional bridge that was made fairly recently, and I think that the city’s desire to improve it and make it more safe and navigable is a commendable one.” The bridge just north of the parish hall at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe was built in the late 1930s and reconstructed in 1959. Weight restrictions were imposed in the 1990s, and the bridge has been tapped for replacement by the New Mexico Department of Transportation. Councilor Ron Trujillo, who works for the Department of Transportation, said he has seen the deterioration of the bridge up-close, and he’s glad that peo-

ple on both sides of the debate agree that it must come down and be replaced. “We’re talking safety here,” he said. “It won’t be on my conscience, and I don’t want it to be, if that bridge was to collapse and somebody was killed.” Martinez told the council that in order to tap into $150,000 in state funds for the estimated $500,000 bridge replacement, final plans for the project must be completed by the end of June. Adding a pedestrian and bicycle bridge west of the Defouri Street span as an alternative to sidewalks would add an estimated $100,000 to the cost of the project, he added. Councilors Patti Bushee and Signe Lindell stood alone in voting for a single sidewalk on the bridge. That alternative failed on a 6-2 vote, and the measure calling for two sidewalks passed by the same margin. Mayor Javier Gonzales did not get to vote on the questions, because a voter-approved charter amendment giving the mayor power to vote on all council actions does not take effect until May. “I think that the last consideration that they made tonight was the neighbors and the neighborhoods,” said Santa Fe resident Marilyn Bane. “That’s very unfortunate, because I think that’s the heart of Santa Fe.” Contact Patrick Malone at 9863017 or pmalone@sfnewmexican. com.

Man gets life prison term in rape case ALBUQUERQUE — A convicted rapist has been sentenced to life in prison plus 27 years for kidnapping and raping a teenage Albuquerque boy in 2008. Prosecutors say Anthony Samora was sentenced Wednesday. A court ruling last December mandated that Samora was subject to a life sentence based on having a prior conviction for rape. Prosecutors say Samora has admitted to having sex with children more than 100 times and has been arrested multiple times for sex crimes against children. Authorities say Samora was out of prison on probation and parole in May 2008 when was accused of raping a 16-year-old developmentally delayed boy he picked up. Samora was 40 at the time. He was convicted in 2004 of raping a 14-year-old hitchhiker and served less than three years behind bars.

The Bureau of Land Management has given a coal company the green light to move forward with expanding a mine north of Grants. Peabody Natural Resources Co. won a competitive bid Monday at $2.3 million for a 640-acre lease to develop 9.2 million tons of coal adjacent to El Segundo Mine. Peabody sought the lease in 2011 to expand its El Segundo mine, which produces 8 million tons of coal a year for power companies in the Four Corners area of northwestern New Mexico and eastern Arizona. The lease sale was appealed in 2013, and the BLM conducted additional analysis of environmental impacts from the mine.

Roswell police said Brian Rudloff, of Odessa, Texas, was arrested in Texas following a multistate search. According to authorities, Rudloff dragged the officer after he refused to get out of his car for a field sobriety late Monday. Police say the officer was dragged about 30 feet before Rudloff sped away. Two Roswell patrol cars responding to the scene later crashed. Authorities say Rudloff’s vehicle was found at a local hotel, and he was later arrested in Odessa. Police say no officers suffered severe injuries. It was not known if Rudloff had an attorney.

UNM officials to consider tuition change ALBUQUERQUE — University of New Mexico officials are discussing an idea for providing students of the Albuquerque school with a new tuition option.

The university has increased its tuition annually in recent years, and Associate Vice President Terry Babbitt says the proposed optional approach could provide stability to students and their families. The proposal was a discussion item during the Board of Regents’ meeting Monday. The board is expected to consider it March 25.

Subject: THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA (e.g., To which ocean is the Mediterranean Sea connected? Answer: Atlantic.)

Dear Annie: I am 60 years old and feel that I have accomplished next to nothing. The only worthwhile things are my husband, two children and a lovely granddaughter. They are the lights of my life. I was let go from a previous job for something I didn’t do. My current job is awful, and it stresses me out every day. But I have no computer training, so a job change is not in the cards. Besides, businesses don’t want to hire an “old” person like me. Because my job pays next to nothing, I began charging things on credit. What was I supposed to do? I’m now in deep credit-card debt and am desperate to find the funds to pay it off. I’m a hard worker, but feel like a useless failure. Don’t tell me to see a counselor, because there is no money to pay for it. If my car dies on me, I’ll be walking six miles to work. At this time in my so-called life, I thought I’d be better off than I am. Please tell me what I can do. — End of the Line Dear End: The quality of your life should not be based solely on your financial situation. Can your husband help you pay off this debt? Surely he would want to be supportive. Also try Debtors Anonymous (debtorsanonymous. org). For a job, contact your local city hall or state government offices for help. Then try AARP (, which offers information and resources for seniorfriendly companies. But also, please don’t disregard your depression. There is free and low-cost counseling available through your local county services, the YWCA, any graduate school counseling department or medical school psychology department, United Way, the Samaritan Institute ( and the Abraham Low Self-Help Systems ( Dear Annie: I’ve considered writing every time I read about someone who thinks their spouse is having an affair. Facebook and other social media have opened

the door to secret connections, contact with old flames and private conversations with co-workers. I didn’t fully understand the issue until I found that my husband was communicating with various other women this way. I never expected this. My husband was an upstanding professional, and we had been married 25 years. When someone gets caught communicating with another and protests that “nothing happened,” what they mean is that they aren’t yet sexually involved. But a lot has happened. It’s a betrayal. Once a husband or wife closes a window to the spouse and opens it to another person, it creates an intimacy. A better definition of an affair is that it’s something that violates trust. My husband and I now work every day to keep those windows open only to each other. He finally understands that it’s not sex that makes the affair. It’s taking your emotional passion and giving it to someone other than your spouse. — Trusting Again Dear Trusting: We agree that trust is the bottom line of any relationship, providing the security and confidence that allow it to survive for the long haul. We are glad that you and your husband managed to work on this together and repair your marriage. Thank you for offering both good counsel and hope for others. Dear Annie: Your answer to “Annoyed Grandma” about a grandchild with no boundaries was right on. Our teenage daughter begged us to go to an unsupervised party, and we said no. Her friends even told us “everyone’s going.” In spite of her anger, we all made it through. Two years later, she said, “Remember the party I begged you to attend? I want to thank you for not giving in. I didn’t want to go, but I didn’t want to lose face with my friends, and I used you as my excuse. I knew you wouldn’t let me down.” Tough love is worth it. — Mom of a Super (Now 52-Year-Old) Daughter

SCOOP Dallas nonprofit starts social media campaign to boost adoptions By Sue Nanning

The Associated Press


OS ANGELES — Sandy the dog “muttbombed” celebrities like Bradley Cooper, Ellen DeGeneres and Brad Pitt as they posed at the Oscars for the now-famous, star-studded selfie. That digitally tweaked version of the most retweeted photo ever is a Texas animal rescue’s bet that combining cuddly canines and Hollywood stars will entice more social media users to adopt needy pets. So-called muttbombing, the Photoshopped doggie version of photobombing, where someone slips into a picture without the subject knowing, has proved so popular online it has touched off requests from shelters across the country and overseas on how to launch their own campaigns. With social media increasingly becoming the go-to advertising tool, shelters are rushing to take up the successful strategy and DreamWorks Animation has used it to promote both homeless pets and its new movie starring a cartoon canine. The adoption campaign by Dallas Pets Alive, a small, all-volunteer rescue, and Dieste Inc., a marketing firm working pro bono, launched Feb. 10. They take the publicly posted Instagram photos of both the glitterati and the girl next door, edit in the friendly face of a dog in need and attach often humorous captions urging adoptions. The Oscars selfie has a caption reading, “I’m Sandy and I’m #muttbombing you in hopes of finding a home.” In another celebrity muttbomb, a pooch named Max sneaked in next to actor Ryan Gosling and asked, “Hey Ryan Gosling, can I follow you home? My parents always told me to follow my dreams.” Other photos have featured Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus and Jimmy Fallon. The goal of the campaign is to boost adoptions and reduce the number of animals that the Dallas pound euthanizes. Dallas Pets Alive, a nonprofit that started a year-and-a-half ago, takes in animals, fosters them and then finds them forever homes, said executive director Leslie Sans, who runs the rescue out of her house. The catchy campaign increased traffic to the rescue’s Instagram page by 700 percent right away. The hashtag “muttbombing” also reached millions of Twitter users, Sans said. The attention has helped the rescue find homes for more dogs. Ten were placed the first week of March, compared with just one dog placed the first week of the same month last year. Dallas Pets Alive found homes for 84 animals in all of 2013. This year, it placed 40 in two months and seven days. “In all my years, I’ve never had a campaign with 100 percent positive results,” said Carla Eboli, Dieste’s chief marketing officer. Dieste, with offices in New York and Dallas, has gotten calls from 10 animal shelters around the United States and one in the United Kingdom in the last few weeks, “saying they loved muttbombing and wanted to use it, and how do you do it?”

a small, short-haired terrier mix named Marlon Brando, who they met Saturday. “He will be a perfect fit for our house,” she said. Walker says she’s a big muttbombing fan. It got her to the website and now she has a new dog. Sans, the rescue’s director, said she doesn’t know how it will top muttbombs — 30 or 40 have been done — but the plan is to start a Facebook campaign to recruit more foster volunteers. The rescue can place more dogs if there are more temporary homes for them. Dallas Pets Alive’s plan with muttbombing was to “hit every social media outlet we could,” Sans said. “The idea was to make noise.” It seems to have worked, with DreamWorks Animation embracing muttbombing on Twitter and Facebook last week ahead of the premiere of Mr. Peabody & Sherman. The animated film, starring a genius dog, Mr. Peabody, and his adopted human son, Sherman, gave a boost to some homeless dogs in California by editing them into stills with the movie’s cartoon stars. A tweet said, “Wally & his friends are #muttbombing #MrPeabody & Sherman in hopes of finding a loving home!” It even got a shoutout from Dallas Pets Alive: “thanks for using #muttbombing! Best of luck with #MrPeabodyandSherman tomorrow! We all think it’s pawsome!”

Eboli said. Dallas Pets Alive trademarked the word muttbomb, but it is sharing how to roll out the campaign with any rescue that asks. One of the posts quickly got the attention of Hilary Walker, whose public Instagram picture was used in the campaign. But the Dallas interior designer and veteran blogger said the pooch muttbombing her was too big for her to adopt. “That dog wasn’t the right fit for us, but it motivated me and piqued my curiosity,” she said. She and her husband already had ON THE WEB been thinking of getting a playmate for their u rescue dog. On the nonprofit’s website, Walker found u

Pooches put best paw forward for Broadway role The Associated Press

NEW YORK — They were raw talents — some delighted by the attention, others confused. More than one sniffed happily in the audition room, just happy to be there. Fourteen small dogs ranging from English cocker spaniels to toy poodles got call-backs Wednesday for the chance to star opposite five-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald on Broadway in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill, a musical that imagines

one of Billie Holiday’s last performances in 1959. The dogs had to enjoy being held, get along with other animals and people, and weigh less than 15 pounds. No previous stage experience was required, and most didn’t have any. Many were service dogs. One had been the ring bearer at a wedding. At the beginning of the process, held in the lobby of the Circle in the Square Theatre, Broadway animal trainer Bill Berloni told the owners that an ability to do tricks wasn’t what

he and the producers wanted. “What we’re looking for is a dog who will portray this character’s best friend at the end of her life. So relax, everybody. It’s all about the relationship you have with your animal,” he said. “Be yourself. Show us what’s special about your dog. Don’t

Sunday’s event, held at the same time and location, will include Chihuahuas and all the mixes in between, organizers said. Both events feature animals from Albuquerque Animal Welfare, Watermelon Ranch and the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society and will include refreshments, prizes, free spay/neuter vouchers for pit bulls, along with St. Patrick’s Day-themed costumes and handkerchiefs. Low-cost microchipping and vaccinations, along with free behavior and training advice for pit bulls, along with handbooks will be available.

Brewer won’t seek re-election in Ariz. Two-term governor mulled running for another term despite constitutional limit By Ian Lovett

The New York Times

PHOENIX — Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona said Wednesday that she would not run for re-election, ending speculation about her plans. “There does come a time to pass the torch of leadership,” Brewer said Wednesday during brief comments at an elementary school in Phoenix. “And after competing this term in office, I will be doing just that.” The school, which two of her children attended, is where she first decided 30 years ago to run for office, Brewer said. Brewer, a Republican, was appointed to the job in 2009 and was elected in her own right in 2010. Since taking office, Brewer, 69, has presided over one of the more tumultuous periods in the state, signing into law some of the nation’s toughest measures against immigrants in the state illegally but recently vetoing a controversial bill that would have allowed businesses in the state to refuse service to gays and lesbians for religious reasons. She vetoed the measure after a dramatic two days of speculation over what she would do. “We have been steadfast in fighting for state sovereignty and individual liberty,” Brewer said Wednesday, and have worked relentlessly to bring the state’s economy back from the recession. Brewer did not take questions after her statement. Even though the Arizona Constitution limits governors to two terms, Brewer had talked lately about trying to find a way around it for the 2014 election. Her first term came by appointment, after the governor at the time, Janet Napolitano, left to become President Barack Obama’s Homeland Security secretary, and Brewer could make a case in court that although she has served two terms, one of them was not an elected term, so it should not count. Andrew Wilder, a spokesman for the governor, said she “chose not to test” the term limits in the state constitution. He said term limits were not what motivated her decision to step aside. “This was a very personal decision,” he said, adding that if she had run, “She would have

done so believing she would prevail.” Though Brewer did not comment on any political plans after her term expires, Wilder said, “She hasn’t indicated an intention to run for another office.” He added that she planned to stay engaged in politics and support “candidates that share her approach

to governing.” Brewer’s relationship with Republicans in the Legislature and with the Center for Arizona Policy, a powerful advocacy group behind the religion bill and other controversial legislation, has been uneven. She was a driving force behind the expansion of Medicaid in Arizona, which put her at odds with the Republican legislators and the policy group. But she sided with them in approving legislation on immigration and abortion that also put Arizona in the center of national debates. Her decision clears the path for the eight Republicans who have signaled that they will enter the race. They range from Tea Party favorites to business supporters, Second Amendment enthusiasts and opponents of illegal immigration. Among the candidates are Ken Bennett, the secretary of state; Doug Ducey, the state treasurer and former chief executive of Cold Stone Creamery; Al Melvin, a state senator from Tucson; Scott Smith, the mayor of Mesa; Christine Jones, a political novice who is general counsel of the Internet service company Go Daddy; and Andrew Thomas, a former Maricopa County attorney disbarred over ethical violations, who is campaigning on a platform of enforcing border security as he aims for a political comeback. A Republican strategist, Nathan Sproul, said that most political observers in Arizona had not expected Brewer to seek another term. Her absence, Sproul said, leaves the Republican Party with its most open primary in more than two decades. “This primary will definitely determine the direction of the Republican Party in the state — there are very distinct differences between the candidates,” he said. “If anyone told you that they knew where this race stood, they would not be telling the truth. This race is as wide open as it can possibly be.” On the Democratic side is Fred DuVal, a former chairman of the state’s Board of Regents.

Horse: Governor also rejects bill to limit executive powers Continued from Page A-8 appeals in doping cases also would be stuck in the court system. In Mares’ view, another reform bill recently signed by Martinez will make a difference to the racing industry. Senate Bill 116, also sponsored by Papen, allows racetrack operators to eject from their property people whose licenses have been suspended or revoked for drugging horses. The governor on Wednes-

day also vetoed a second proposal that would have diluted executive-branch powers. She rejected a measure passed by the Legislature that would have overhauled the membership of the Water Trust Board, which recommends financing for water projects. The proposal would have stripped the governor of power to appoint public members of the board and assigned that responsibility to the Legislature. Martinez objected that the

measure also could have prevented the board from funding some previously approved projects. The bill, she said, would have reduced the number of water projects that the board could fund this spring.

Putin’s critics face uncertain future


rimea’s non-Russian minorities aren’t the only ones whose rights may be trampled as Russian President Vladimir Putin moves to annex the Ukrainian peninsula. His critics in Russia, too, face a frightening future. Mikhail Khodorkovsky, once Russia’s richest man and until recently the country’s best-known political prisoner, assured Ukrainians in Kiev last weekend that not all Russians agree with Putin’s de facto invasion of Ukrainian territory. He extolled the actions of anti-war protesters detained in Moscow, saying they represent “a totally different Russia,” people “for whom friendship between the Russian and Ukrainian nations is more important than their own liberty.” His words were greeted with a chorus of “Russia, arise.” Brave as they were, though, the Russian protesters numbered only in the hundreds — a drop in the bucket for a country of 140 million. Most Russians appear to support Putin’s moves: Polls by different organizations, from pro-Kremlin VTsIOM to the liberal-leaning Levada Center, suggest that the president’s popularity is at its highest since his re-election in 2012. “The nation will be united, and an overwhelming majority will share the leader’s ideology and enrich this ideology with its unity,” Putin’s press secretary Dmitri Peskov told the Russia 1 television channel, calling the dissenters “professional critics” and a “nano-fifth column.” Already, a team of proPutin activists has created a website that carries a list of “traitors” — journalists, TV personalities, celebrities, opposition politicians — who have condemned the Crimean campaign. “We believe Russian citizens who insult our soldiers and doubt the need to fight neo-Nazis are traitors, no matter how talented they are as journalists, authors and directors,” the site’s anonymous creators wrote. A lawyer named Anton Sorvachev maintains his own “blacklist” on LiveJournal, warning media that support-

All teachers deserve raises


ing Ukraine is tantamount to high treason. University lecturer Arkady Minakov called on Putin to “neutralize” the pro-Western fifth column. On social networks, hundreds of commentators have vented their anger at “traitors.” The hate-mongering is not directly backed or recognized by the Kremlin, but then neither are the unmarked troops who now control the Crimea. Just as Putin wages his strange war of intimidation in Ukraine, his propaganda machine is creating a climate of intolerance for dissent. “The nation is consolidated,” columnist Ivan Davydov wrote on “The opponents of war (that is, excuse me, Russia’s upcoming great geopolitical triumph) are a tiny minority. The discussions are over. What could jubilant patriots discuss with traitors to the nation? Now we have insults in place of arguments.” The shift in Russian society could be deep and long-lasting. Once the Crimea’s annexation is a fait accompli, Putin will be motivated to control dissent at home as much of the outside world condemns Russia’s actions and possibly hits it with sanctions. People

who disagree with Putin’s policies will be intellectually isolated, forced to adapt to the new environment. “This will be a completely different society,” the political scientist Alexander Morozov, who predicted the Crimean invasion, wrote on “Life will continue under this new Berlin wall. For some people, Putin’s pseudo-Iran will provide great new opportunities. Other will emigrate. Others yet will fall silent, and still others will look for new forms of loyalty.” I can see this “different society” — Morozov’s, not Khodorkovsky’s — congealing around me. Many people I talk to, from colleagues to guys at the gym, believe Russia is right to claim the Crimea. Even if they did not back Putin before, they do now, perhaps tactically and temporarily, but heatedly. In their minds, they are just being patriotic. Whether dissenters will face reprisals or not, they are increasingly marginalized and irrelevant to the new Russia that Putin carried for years in his mind and has just revealed to the world. “Putin doesn’t intend to have a conversation with any-

one, but even if he did, there would be nobody for him to talk to,” Gleb Pavlovsky, once a close adviser to Putin and now his opponent, told Colta. ru. This “total collapse of the Russian intelligent class,” he said, “is a more serious catastrophe than the Crimea.” It may also be a bigger victory for Putin than the annexation. The war he is winning is not in Ukraine, where a whole nation will now see Russians as natural enemies, and not in the West, where Russia will be even more deeply mistrusted. It is a domestic war against people who want a different image and a different future for their country. Only two years ago, tens of thousands of people marched against Putin in Moscow and were seen as a serious enough challenge that the Kremlin even made some concessions, bringing back gubernatorial elections and cutting back on vote-counting fraud. Now, Putin’s opponents are a demoralized handful expecting to be kicked around and spat at as traitors. Leonid Bershidsky writes on Russia, Europe and technology for Bloomberg View.

Reviewing real costs of social programs


adio host Thom Hartmann recently talked about it and I found this article at, “Food Stamps Are Affordable, Corporate Welfare Is Not.” It mentions how Republicans say we can’t afford these social safetynet programs and how they burden the American taxpayer. Citizens For Tax Justice broke down the numbers for a taxpayer in 2012 making $50,000 per year. That taxpayer paid $36 toward the food stamp program and $6 toward the rest of the social safety net programs. On the other hand, he paid $6,000 in subsides to wealthy corporations who don’t need it. If you’re a Republican, please consider coming to the light. Steve Campbell

Celebrate love The other day, on my way to dig through plats and deeds at the Santa Fe County Clerk’s Office, I noticed a happy group of people at the clerk’s desk. In

passing, I saw two women were getting a marriage license. What struck me was the smiles on both sides of the desk. As I did my mundane task in the next room, I heard the bubble of genuinely joyous laughter. The folks in that office shared in the happiness of those two people, and I did as well. Santa Fe, New Mexico and the country have traveled a long road to permit samesex marriage. I’m glad to be living in a time and place where we can affirm the love and commitment people share by saying yes, this is a marriage we don’t just allow, but celebrate. Will McDonald

common trick in past state budgets is this. The Legislature would appropriate money for teacher raises. School districts, including our very own Santa Fe Public Schools, then would spend the money elsewhere while claiming they couldn’t pay teachers more. To be fair, the state dollars often were diverted to cover other unfunded mandates. Whatever the reason, teachers would end up without a raise. Fast forward to 2014. Gov. Susana Martinez earlier this week vetoed the mandatory, in-the-budget raises for Level 2 and Level 3 teachers (beginning teachers still must see their pay increase from $30,000 to $32,000). The money, though, still remains for districts to pay all teachers more. The raises for the more experienced teachers also were $2,000 a year and that’s where they should stay. Teachers, like other state employees, deserve their raises. (Martinez vetoed 8 percent raises for judges and district attorneys. We wish at least a 3 percent raise could have made it through.) Teacher raises, of course, have proved controversial during both the last session and Martinez’s entire time in office. The governor wants to tie salary to so-called performance — as measured in great part by student scores on assorted standardized tests. The idea of merit raises is not bad on its face. In most professions, high performers have the opportunity to do better than the simply mediocre or flat-out awful. How you get to high performing, though, is where the debate still exists. Without buy in from the state Legislature, Martinez’s Secretary-designate Hanna Skandera and her Public Education Department came up with evaluations for teachers that depend heavily on student test results as a measure of excellence. Santa Fe, while agreeing to some performance-based pay, developed its own system that treats teachers more fairly. The statewide system for merit pay remains a work in progress. Vetoing the mandate for Level 2 and Level 3 teacher raises means that thousands of hardworking New Mexico teachers could forfeit a well-deserved increase in pay. School districts, do the right thing. We have argued long and hard this year that money is best spent close to the people. Given discretion, use the money budgeted and increase teacher pay, just as legislators intended.


Get a load off

or a more vibrant downtown, an idea being piloted in Seattle. We saw it on Facebook, posted by legendary band director and musician Richard Snider: a modified loading zone in front of bars and music venues, giving priority parking for musicians so they can unpack instruments quickly. The city of Seattle has five venues participating — each must host or present live music at least three separate days a week and hire one or more musicians to perform some 16 individual performances a week. The idea, said city officials, is to do as much as possible to make it easier for musicians to do their jobs. A vibrant local music scene is essential to Seattle, they say. As it is in Santa Fe.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: March 13, 1964: Taos — The oft-delayed request for incorporation by the residents of the community of Questa finally has won approval of the Taos Board of County Commissioners. A formal order of incorporation now is being prepared and will be signed by the commissioners within the next few days, making the decision official. This formal order also will set up a town election in Questa to select a mayor and four town councilmen. Questa residents feel the town status will permit Questa to get assistance for things like water and sewer projects from the federal and state governments and will generally help improve the community. March 13, 1989: Legislative inaction on bills and a decided Democratic advantage in the measures that have been passed caused harsh words last week between Republican Gov. Garrey Carruthers and majority party leaders. With less than a week remaining in the 1989 session, by Friday Carruthers had received 50 bills, including four he vetoed. He chastised Democrats for mostly passing Democratic bills and paying little attention to those sponsored by Republicans.

NEW YORK ob Thomas knew he might make movie history by using Kickstarter to crowdfund his Veronica Mars film. But he wasn’t prepared for the posters. Of all the prizes offered to donors of Veronica Mars — everything from a digital copy of the script for $10 to a walkon cameo for $10,000 — the most taxing was autographing the cast-signed posters promised to more than 5,000 backers. It took several hand-cramping days and constant shuttling of boxes from one signee to the next. “We’ve got our own poster handler who is in charge of getting them to us and getting them signed,” Thomas said in a recent interview. “It’s required, like, its own department.” But, he adds, “This movie would not exist if we had not gone down this path.” It’s been a year since Thomas sent shockwaves through the movie industry by turning to the crowdfunding site Kickstarter to help finance a movie based on his cultishly adored but short-lived high school detective series.

On Friday, the movie hits theaters and video-on-demand. As the first high-profile celebrity project to drum up money on Kickstarter, Veronica Mars is a trailblazer, albeit one with a cloudy legacy. Thomas has already been followed by projects by Zach Braff (to fund his second directorial effort) and Spike Lee (to raise cash for his latest Joint). The land rush into a new avenue of funding (a major struggle for most filmmakers) has raised questions about the ethics of fan-based financing. (Contributors pay for different levels of rewards, but don’t share in profits.) Veronica Mars may have introduced a democratic spirit to a green-lighting process usually controlled by film executives, but it has also opened a Pandora’s box where, critics say, established insiders can take advantage of their loyal followings. “It’s a brilliant idea that’s gotten out of hand,” House of Cards producer Dana Brunetti recently said at a SXSW panel discussion. “It’s wrong when people like Zach Braff or Spike Lee use that same service to fund their films when they already have access. I think it overshadows and takes away from the little guys who actually need the funding.”

Creator of ‘Breaking Bad’ tries his hand at acting The New York Times

When his AMC thriller Breaking Bad came to its highly anticipated end in September, the series’ creator, Vince Gilligan, could have chosen almost anything he wanted for his next act: a new television series, a movie or just an extended vacation. Instead, he is returning to TV in an unexpectedly absurd fashion. He will appear on Thursday’s episode of Community, the cult NBC comedy about a shabby low-cost college, but he is not playing one of the school’s misfit students nor any of its grossly underqualified educators. Rather, Gilligan, an Emmy Award-winning writer, pro-

ducer and director, will make his professional on-camera acting debut dressed in a 10-gallon hat and seated next to a prop cactus, playing the goofily accented host of a vintage VCR game with an Old West theme. “Everybody in their heart of hearts wishes they could be Errol Flynn or Harrison Ford, swashbuckling away in a big movie,” Gilligan said. “I always knew I couldn’t act and I couldn’t sing, so I never really tried either.” Now that he has made his acting debut, Gilligan said he would probably stick to roles behind the camera. He said the experience had made him more sympathetic to performers.

Frustrated Prep falls Mounting pressure leads to mistakes, anger in close loss to Texico By James Barron

By Greg Beacham

The New Mexican

The Associated Press


IO RANCHO — “The Kick” did not cost Santa Fe Preparatory its boys basketball season. It was everything in the fourth quarter that led up to the combination of Blue Griffins frustrations in the face of an Texico 53 oncoming Texico S.F. Prep 51 charge that met in a combustible meltdown on Wednesday afternoon. What people will talk about in Texico’s 53-51 win in the Class AA quarterfinals in the Santa Ana Star Center is Prep senior Diego Perea’s kick of frustration at Wolverines guard Gentry Doolittle as Prep held a 51-50 lead with :27 left in the game. That led to a technical foul being called on Perea, which was the key moment in the Wolverine’s closing 20-3 run. It led to Miguel Reyna hitting three of four free throws — two from the technical, and one of two on the ensuing foul just two seconds later — to give Texico a 53-51 lead. But upon closer inspection, the kick was merely the final nail in the Blue Griffins’ coffin over the final 9:48. Prep, which led 48-33 after Perea’s fourth 3-pointer of the afternoon at 1:48 of the third quarter, scored just three points over that final span. “By no stretch of the imagination are we blaming this loss on Diego,” Prep head coach Dennis Casados said. “I’m taking the blame. I’m the one in charge of this program. “It goes on this guy, right here,” he added, as he pointed his right index finger over his head. Perea, however, did something that Casados emphasized to his team in the days before the quarterfinal game. After picking up a technical foul him-

Kneeling, Vermeulen swung the bat to show how he believed Pistorius struck the door from a low angle, indicating he was on his stumps at the time.

SAN FRANCISCO — While there were doubts whether any team would give Jonathan Martin another chance, the NFL coach who knows him best considered it an easy call. San Francisco’s Jim Harbaugh once sat in Martin’s living room to recruit him, coached him for three years at Stanford and developed Martin into an All-American and a secondround draft pick, then stood by him from afar as Martin accused a Miami teammate of bullying last year. “I believe everybody deserves an Etch-A-Sketch opportunity and an opportunity to start a new chapter,” Harbaugh said. “Because of my relationship recruiting Jonathan, and [I] coached Jonathan for three years at Stanford, I’m confident he will be committed to the mission and the organization. Very excited about it.” Martin is back in a place he can feel safe as he starts over on the football field. Harbaugh’s 49ers acquired the offensive tackle in a trade with the Dolphins on Tuesday night, with a physical scheduled for Thursday to finalize the deal.

Pistorius trial: Bullet-holed bathroom door in court By Christopher Torchia and Gerald Imray The Associated Press

PRETORIA, South Africa — A South African police officer swung a cricket bat at Oscar Pistorius’ bulletmarked bathroom door during his murder trial on Wednesday, using two key pieces of evidence to re-enact the night he killed his girlfriend. Police Col. J.G. Vermeulen faced tough questioning from Pistorius’ defense lawyer, who tried to discredit the police investigation of the shooting and alleged that Vermeulen, a forensic expert, made glaring missteps in his analysis. Pistorius’ lawyers secured bail for him last year after contending that

police contaminated or tampered with evidence from the home where he fatally shot Reeva Steenkamp, fir-

ing through the bathroom door as she cowered inside during the pre-dawn hours of Valentine’s Day 2013. Pistorius says the killing was a mistake; the prosecution alleges the 27-year-old double-amputee intentionally shot Steenkamp after an argument. The actual door that Pistorius shot through a year ago was erected in the Pretoria courtroom Wednesday, and the bat he used that night was used in the demonstrations. There was even a toilet cubicle behind the door, recreated to the exact specifications of the small area of Pistorius’ bathroom where the 29-year-old model was fatally shot, Vermeulen said. Below the door’s handle, four bullet holes were clearly visible. Steenkamp

Broncos, DeMarcus Ware agree to deal

By Pat Graham

The Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos kept their free agency focus on defense as they agreed to a three-year, $30 million deal with pass rusher DeMarcus Ware. Ware didn’t fully intend to agree to a deal right away with Denver when he flew into town Wednesday morning, but was quickly persuaded by Broncos boss John Elway. The Hall of Fame quarterback turned executive stressed to Ware the Broncos’ commitment to defense even with a prolific offense led by Peyton Manning. Elway’s words were backed up by his actions after reaching lucrative agreements with defensive backs T.J. Ward and Aqib Talib to open free agency on Tuesday. “They’re trying to make a statement — a statement we’re a team to be reckoned with,” Ware said. “Their mentality is a now mentality. Not looking forward to next season or the season after that, the time is now.” Ware was let go Tuesday by Dallas in a salary-cap move. He had a franchise-

record 117 sacks for the Cowboys since being drafted in the first round in 2005. He had a careerlow six sacks last season and missed games for the first time in his career because of a thigh injury. He also underwent offDeMarcus season surgery to fix his Ware elbow. The 31-year-old Ware will play opposite of Von Miller, who’s rehabbing from an ACL injury he suffered on Dec. 22. It was a rough season for the 2011 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, one that began with Miller serving a six-game drug suspension. Ware said he has a good relationship with Miller and hopes to serve as a mentor as well. “Von is one of those incredible athletes,” Ware said. “If you can really hone in on what you do best, and make yourself not think as much when you’re out there, he’ll be an even better athlete.” Denver is on quite a spending spree so far in free agency, agreeing to deals with Ward, Talib and Ware for a combined $110 million (about $60 million guaranteed,

including $20 million for Ware). The Broncos are trying to upgrade the talent on the roster, not knowing how long Manning will be running the offense. It’s really no surprise the Broncos are concentrating on defense in the wake of a 43-8 loss to Seattle in the Super Bowl last month. Ward thinks the trio of new players brings not only leadership but a level of physicality to the field. Denver’s defense surrendered 356 yards and nearly 25 points a game last season. “I think you see with Seattle’s defense last year — definitely defense wins championships,” Ward said. “[Ware and Talib] are two great players. I’m eager to get to work with them. I don’t know them personally yet, but I know what they do on the field. Those are two players I admire. I think we’ll work well together.” Talib actually flew in from Dallas on the same flight as Ware, not even realizing it until halfway through the trip. He was ecstatic to hear that Elway brought Ware on board. “Every year you just want to better your team,” Talib said. “Mr. Elway decided to better his team on defense this year, since the offense looks pretty good.”

Martin: 49ers a haven for second chances Continued from Page B-1 Martin is just the latest player to receive a new start under Harbaugh with the Niners. From 2005 No. 1 overall pick Alex Smith resurrecting his career under the former NFL quarterback to Randy Moss’ return in 2012, two years after three teams let him go, and even San Francisco standing by Aldon Smith and Chris Culliver during their off-field transgressions, the 49ers have provided second chances in many different forms — including for serious off-field instances. As long as he proves he can perform, Martin certainly will be welcome in a close-knit locker room of players who support each other through highs and lows. A year after their Super Bowl defeat, the 49ers lost in the NFC championship game to the division rival and eventual champion Seattle Seahawks. “I’m sure Jonathan will be ready to go. He will help our team,” right tackle Anthony Davis posted on Twitter. This past season, star linebacker Smith spent a five-game stint away from the team to attend rehab for substance abuse then returned to teammates who were thrilled to have the menacing pass-rusher back on one of the NFL’s most dominant defenses. Cornerback Culliver was forgiven for making anti-gay remarks on Super Bowl media day last year and was supported by the front office on down as he reached out afterward to the Bay Area’s large lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Even quarterback Blaine Gabbert, the 10th overall draft pick in 2011 out of Missouri, is getting a new look as Colin Kaepernick’s apparent backup after the 49ers acquired him from Jacksonville on Tuesday. The Jaguars benched Gabbert after three games last year. Now, there’s Martin, eager for a fresh start out West after accusing former Miami teammate Richie Incognito of bullying in a scandal that overshadowed the Dolphins’ 8-8 year and late-season collapse.

the Olympics, was on his prosthetic limbs or not is important because it could match parts of his story that he accidentally shot Steenkamp, or expose inconsistencies in it. Last year, prosecutors maintained Pistorius was on his prostheses when he fired through the door, arguing the runner planned the killing while putting on his artificial limbs. But in a reversal, prosecutor Gerrie Nel said in court Wednesday that he did not dispute the defense’s contention that the runner was on his stumps when he opened fire. The athlete has said he fearfully approached the bathroom on his stumps and shot Steen-

An investigation for the NFL determined last month that Incognito and two other offensive linemen engaged in persistent harassment of Martin, another offensive lineman and an assistant trainer. In November, Harbaugh publicly expressed his support for Martin and called him a “personal friend” while declining to comment on specifics of Miami’s situation. Martin left the Dolphins in late October and underwent counseling for emotional issues. Incognito was suspended for the final eight games. “The goal for this transaction is a win-win. … It’s a great opportunity for Jon to demonstrate to the football world that he’s a football player and worthy of his high draft status,” Harbaugh said Wednesday. “It’s a great opportunity for our organization to add a secondround pick.” Harbaugh planned to meet with his new — and, well, old — player either Wednesday or Thursday depending on when Martin was able to take his physical at team headquarters.

He is nearby taking classes at Stanford, about 20 miles away. Once San Francisco’s formal offseason schedule begins, Harbaugh expects Martin to find his way in a hurry. After all, Martin already knows many of the coaches who worked under Harbaugh while he was turning

around the Cardinal program. How he fits in on the depth chart is still to be determined. “That will all be a process. Jon’s a very intelligent football player and has familiarity with our system,” Harbaugh said. “I think that will be a very smooth transition for him.”

fabric lodged in the wood. The defense lawyer also indicated that police investigators might have left a shoe print on the door, the door itself might have been kept in a policeman’s office and not in proper evidence storage, and missing fragments from the door weren’t examined. Vermeulen said the door was kept in a “body bag.” In an evidence photo, a faint footmark on one of the door panels could be seen. “It looks like a police shoe print,” Vermeulen said. “How did that come about?” Roux asked. Vermeulen said he did not know. Earlier, Vermeulen also said a metal panel on the wall of the main bathroom in Pistorius’

home had been damaged by being hit with a “hard” object. The panel was new evidence. A photo of the damaged plate was shown. Pistorius faces a possible life sentence if convicted of murder for killing Steenkamp. The judge, who watched the demonstrations Wednesday, will ultimately decide on the verdict. There is no trial by jury in South Africa. Pistorius was born without fibula bones because of a congenital defect, and his legs were amputated when he was 11 months old. He ran on carbon-fiber blades and is a multiple Paralympic medalist. He also competed at the London Olympics but didn’t win a medal.

Prep: Kick hurt momentum Continued from Page B-1 self during a heated argument in a 65-53 win over Crownpoint in the opening round, Casados stressed to the Blue Griffins (23-5) to keep their wits about themselves during the heat of play. “I told everybody, including this head coach, we need to go to Rio Rancho and hopefully to The Pit on Saturday and we need to keep our heads and stay focused,” Casados said. “Unfortunately, we didn’t do that.” The incident occurred as Prep had the ball and the lead in the final 30 seconds. With the Wolverines applying pressure on the Prep guards that induced the cold streak, Casados called for a timeout just as Perea, who had the ball, and Doolittle were moving toward the Blue Grifffins’ bench. Just as the official awarded the timeout, Perez swung his left leg at Doolittle, who tumbled in front of the Prep team. Another whistle followed for the infraction, leading to a dramatic pause by both teams. “Honestly, I was like, ‘You got to be kidding me,’ ” said Scott Karger, Texico head coach. “ ‘I cannot believe this just happened.’ We needed a break at that time, and for that to happen was just insane. And it was big.” The call swung whatever momentum the Blue Griffins had in the other direction. Not only did they give up two free throws, but they also lost possession of the ball. After Reyna hit his free throws, Prep had two opportunities to score, but D.J. Casados’ corner 3 was off the front of the rim and Will Lenfestey’s 10-footer off the offensive carom was too hard. Casados and Lenfestey, two of Prep’s four seniors, fell to the ground in agony, having seen their last, best chance at playing for a state title slip away. Prep junior Ian Andersson, who had 10 points, 19 rebounds and five blocked shots, said the team didn’t do enough to win. “We turned the ball over way too much,” Andersson said. “We didn’t do the little things right, and it got away from us in the end.” Like six turnovers over the final 9 minutes and going just 1-for-6 down the stretch from the field. What might have irked Casados more were the six free throws Prep had overall, not to mention going 1-for-4 from the line in the final 5:13. “We’re never on the line, and I have big kids,” Casados said. “Our guards are being handchecked down the floor. But’s neither here nor there. I don’t even want to go there. We got beat by an excellent ball club. They were ranked all year number-one [according to the MaxPreps. com rankings] and for good reason.” But the Blue Griffins had not lost to a AA school all season. They showed why for the first two-plus quarters. Perea hit three 3s in the first quarter and Prep went 11-for-20 over the final 10:57 of the first half to take a 30-18 halftime lead. Andersson had 12 rebounds in the first half as the Blue Griffins held a 23-13 advantage on the boards. It looked like Prep was going to kick it into an extra gear in the third quarter as an 18-8 spurt upped the margin to its zenith. The warning signs, though, were apparent as Texico used a variety of full-court and half-court pressure to coax six turnovers in the quarter. Prep had five more in the fourth, and Texico transitioned those miscues into four layups and four free throws before Brannon Karger’s 3 with 2:05 left cut the lead to 51-50. Karger said the Wolverines’ District 4AA battles with Clayton, which has strong post players in Dakota Montoya and Mark Craine, taught his team to try and apply more pressure on guards to offset that strength. “We felt like we had the experience in playing against Dakota and Crain,” Karger said. “They are just huge, mammoth men. So we decided to put a little pressure on their guards.” And pressure did the Blue Griffins in.

Escalante sophomore guard Dominic Montaño was fouled on a drive to the basket. Montaño made both free throws to tie the game at 52 a piece. Dora could not get a shot off after calling timeout with :03.4 left, and the game was sent into overtime. In overtime, The Lobos opened up with a 6-1 run before eventually putting the Coyotes away. “After we got a five-point lead in overtime, I thought we had it,” Atencio said. The Lobos didn’t take the game by beating the Coyotes with better strategy. During a timeout with 3:30 left in regulation, Escalante head coach Bill Russom spared his team the X’s and O’s, and instead went with a more straightforward approach. “We asked the boys to make plays,” Russon said. “We told them what separates us now. These boys just stepped up and made some plays.” Russom got good plays out of several players as four Lobos scored in double figures. Montaño and backup junior point guard William Hurd had 12 points a piece and were a part of a youth movement that stepped up

when seniors like forward Norman Salazar fouled out in the fourth quarter with zero points. “We’re fortunate that we’re so deep,” Russom said. “When you have three or four guys that can step up and do that when you’re missing someone of Norman’s caliber. Even Atencio — who finshed with 14 points and six steals, four of which came in the second quarter — admitted that it that it is convenient for the seniors to rely on young players like Montaño and Hurd. “It is really important to have sophomores that are that caliber of athlete stepping up for us,” Atencio said. “They can play any position. Instead of having three main players, we are seven strong.” Now the Lobos play a the defending state champions, but Russom knows it’s going take more than luck to beat the top-seeded Cowboys and give Atencio a chance to fit a ring for his left hand. Sometimes, all it takes is a little bit of old-school strategy. “I think we created our own luck in overtime,” Russom said. “Defensively, these boys dug down deep.”

Castellano and Bustos took center stage in the second half, combining for 17 of West Las Vegas’ 24 third-quarter points as it took a 59-47 lead. Castellano nailed two 3-pointers in the opening two minutes and had 10 points in the third quarter. D.J. Bustos scored the last five points, including a three-point play off a baseline drive with :03.9 in which he absorbed a blow from the left hand of Ruidoso’s Blayne Maldonado for the 12-point margin. “We were having a little trouble matching up with everyone,” Davis said. “They got some easy opportunities early on, and that number 24 kids [Castellano], he was lighting us up.

Anderson, Raonic, Federer win By Beth Harris

The Associated Press

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — Kevin Anderson upset Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka 7-6 (1), 4-6, 6-1 in the fourth round of the BNP Paribas Open on Wednesday, joining Milos Raonic in sending home two top-10 players. Sixth-ranked Andy Murray joined Wawrinka on the sidelines, losing to the big-serving Kevin Raonic, 4-6, 7-5, 6-3. Anderson Two-time tournament winner Novak Djokovic played a late match. Anderson ended Wawrinka’s 13-match winning streak that included his first Grand Slam title in January. Wawrinka didn’t face a break point in his first two matches, but he got broken in his first service game against the 6-foot-8 Anderson, who had 11 aces and connected on 64 percent of his first serves. “I was complaining a lot about my serve, about the way I was playing, and with that, I don’t deserve to win matches,” Wawrinka said. “I should have been more positive with myself, just trying to find solution because it was still a close match.” After losing the first set tiebreaker, Wawrinka left the court for nearly eight minutes to have his back worked on. He returned and broke Anderson twice in taking the second set to even the match. “It’s just tightness,” he said, insisting he wasn’t injured. “I was a little bit nervous and tight and tired.” Anderson earned all four breaks in the third in completing his 150th career match win on the ATP Tour. “Game plan is just to get as many first serves back as possible just to give myself the best look in his serve games throughout the match,” he said. Anderson advanced to the quarterfinals against four-time tournament champion Roger Federer, who beat 11th-seeded Tommy Haas 6-4, 6-4. Against Murray, Raonic earned his first win over a top-10 player since September. He fired 15 aces and held triple match point when he ripped a crosscourt forehand to close out the win after breaking Murray three times in the final set. “The third set was just a bad, bad set of tennis,” said Murray, who broke Raonic to lead 2-1 before losing five of the final six games. Murray, ranked sixth in the world, struggled in all three of his matches at Indian Wells. He rallied from a set down to beat Lukas Rosol and Jiri Vesely, but couldn’t overcome Raonic’s power. “He obviously wins a lot of free points with his serve,” Murray said. “So over the course of the set, if you give up enough unforced errors on basic shots, then with the amount of free points he gets on his serve, that’s going to add up to a negative result.” Raonic blew his first match point when he returned Murray’s serve long. Murray held to trail 5-3, but Raonic held at love to close out the match. He hit 42 winners to 22 for Murray. On the women’s side, sixth-seeded Simona Halep defeated Australian qualifier Casey Dellacqua 6-2, 6-2 to earn a berth in the semifinals.

Cardinal Stritch beats NNMC 74-53 Cardinal Stritch was No. 1 for a reason. The Northern New Mexico College men’s basketball team found out why on Wednesday. Cardinal Stritch got 26 points from Derek Semenas and rolled to a 74-53 win in the opening round of the NAIA Tournament in Point Lookout, Mo. The Wolves (30-4) held Northern New Mexico (16-16) to just 29.5 percent shooting from the field, including an 8-for-30 effort in the first half to take a 34-22 lead. The Eagles managed to cut the margin to 38-29 with 16:29 left in the game, but Cardinal Stritch went on a 14-5 run to up the margin to 52-34. A pair of former Española grads led the way for the Eagles, as Matthew Brito had 19 points and Rodney Coles added eight. The New Mexican

Climate change puts snow sports in jeopardy

he science is settled. The Earth is not flat, and mankind is heating up the atmosphere, driving extreme changes in global climates. If you love snow sports, you should be concerned. If you love life as we know it, you should take action. While last week’s snowfall brought some relief to local skiers, ski-area operators, our tourism industry and the parched land, total snowfall is significantly down this winter. Snowfall is major source of water that eventually fills — or doesn’t fill — our reservoirs, saturates soils and recharges aquifers. So the lack of snow bodes ill for farmers, wildlife, recreational activities from rafting to fishing, and eventually what Daniel comes out of your house tap. Gibson In fact, the ominous trends are Snow Trax showing massive wildfires threatening to permanently alter the compositions of tree types in our forests, loss of water for agriculture and urban uses, rising oceans drowning islands and low coastal zones, economic and society-level disruption, extremes in weather from heat waves, and massive tornadoes, polar vortices and dust storms. The loss of snow for skiing seems almost trivial. But with the joy that comes from floating over a field of powder or carving a clean high-speed turn on packed snow is important to some 65 million people worldwide and the local economies they support, and is reflective of the larger processes at work. Am I crying wolf? People forget that in the end, the wolf did arrive. In a new book by veteran ski journalist Porter Fox, DEEP: The Story of Skiing and the Future of Snow, he reports, “The snowpack in British Columbia has declined by half overall and the ski season in some regions is four to five months shorter than it was 50 years ago. Eastern Canada is even warmer. … Computer models show the Northeast ski season shrinking to less than 100 days by 2039. Under other models, the mean snow depth for the Rocky Mountains is predicted to drop to zero by 2100.” In the Alps, where “temperatures are rising three times faster than the global average,” he notes, the infrastructures of the high alpine (refuges, chairlifts, antennas, etc.) are built on permafrost and without reinforcements are likely to crumble as permafrost melts. The past two Winter Olympics have both been marred by poor snow conditions, with events postponed, modified or simply held despite the difficulties posed by soft or inadequate snow. The Sochi Games saw a petition created and circulated by athletes calling for reduced carbon emissions and increasing clean-energy technologies. The athletes teamed up with the nonprofit group Protect Our Winters, launched by snowboarder Jeremy Jones in 2007. In support of the petition, U.S. snowboard competitor Alex Deibold said, “I want my kids and their kids to be able to enjoy the outdoors the same way I did.” However, a study released in January by Canada’s University of Waterloo found that only 11 of the previous 19 cities that have hosted the Winter Olympics will probably be cold enough to host the games in 2050, and only six will be viable in 2100. Another organization seeking to stem rising temperatures, tides and impacts to the snowpack is I Am Pro Snow, part of the Climate Reality Project led by Al Gore. He recently said in Ski Magazine, “We all need snow but right now, snow needs us. … If you want to save winter — and the winter sports you love — you need to tell your elected officials that you care about this issue and that you will hold them accountable if they don’t take action.” Of course, the climate change deniers are still out there. In a campaign modeled after “Big Tobacco’s” decades-long drive to suppress efforts to curb smoking and evidence that smoking is dangerous, “Big Energy” is funding scientists to interject some level of uncertainty into the debate. However, if you chart the release of carbon and other greenhouse gases by man, as well as the rise in global temperatures over the past century, the correlation is obvious. Some 90 million tons of carbon — from burning oil, natural gas and coal — are released daily into the world’s atmosphere. This has led to nine of the 10 hottest years on record in the past 12 years. Climate change is already happening, and it has entered our daily lives. If deniers won’t take the word of the vast majority of scientists, research organizations around the world, long-term studies and simply looking around them to see which way the wind blows, perhaps the conclusions of the global insurance industry and the U.S. Department of Defense might suggest a reappraisal of the situation. Insurance companies are planning for a world wracked by climate convulsions, and the U.S. Department of Justice has classified climate change as a national security risk. Frankly, the situation looks extremely grim. The energy industry — the most powerful and wealthy industry on Earth — will do everything it can to block, confuse, stall and undermine any and all efforts to effect change. And the clock is ticking. The heating process already at work will continue to alter climates even if all fossil fuel burning ended tomorrow. The window on averting disaster is closing. Loss of snow sports might end up being just a minor bump on the downward course of humanity. But the world without snow would be a much diminished home.

For The New Mexican


n a world where the past is wiped away faster than you can swipe a screen, there’s a lot to be said for things that stay the same. This is the guiding philosophy behind the extraordinary Hotel St. Bernard, tucked away high in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains at Taos Ski Valley. Its copper-covered fireplace is the eternal flame of this special valley, where generations of popsicle-like children have thawed out of a winter day and hotel guests can be found gazing contemplatively, hot chocolate in hand, into the orange flames. Since its opening in 1960, under Frenchborn Jean Mayer, the hotel has served as the unofficial living, dining and bar room of this unique alpine community, inspiring clientele to return annually for more than 40 years, and its staff to show up decade after decade. Evan Blish, bartender and sommelier at the “St. B” for 39 years, said, “One of Jean’s most famous sayings, and he has many, is ‘The more things change, the more we stay the same.’ ” It began as a place of basic amenities, and it remains so today. The 10 rooms in the main lodge are small, with tiny bathtubs and thin walls. There is no spa (but there is a hot tub), no game room, no room service, no retail shops. But the gourmet food, old-world charm, live music in the Rathskeller and warm staff more than compensate. Last week, found the hotel bustling with a

Where: The ski-in, ski-out Hotel St. Bernard at Taos Ski Valley is located about 2½ hours from Santa Fe. It was historically available only for weeklong stays, but now accepts short-term clientele and, if you’re lucky, dinner-only reservations. Cost: A ski week runs $2,624 per person for a double. There are 29 units altogether: 10 in the lodge, plus rooms in A-frame chalets next door and the walk-to contemporary St. Bernard Condominiums. The dining area has a maximum capacity for 130 or so. For those who can’t make the trip, there is a wonderful new book about the hotel titled Cuisine St. Bernard: Recipes and Reflections from the Incomparable Mountain Inn (Arundel Press, London).

nearly full house — mostly people there for its famed “Ski Week” — which includes two daily ski lessons, all meals and lift tickets. People are seated at the same table for dinner nightly, and many a friendship has been struck here over the years. Among the guests were Bruce Lonie of Northern California, his wife and friends.

“Near as we can figure, we’ve been coming since 1971 or ’72,” Lonie said. “We’ve only missed a few years. It’s kind of like coming home. You know, I’ve known some of the staff for 40 years. We can’t imagine not coming here every winter.” Alison Salzman of Chicago first came to Taos in 1966, riding the train to Raton, where they were met by a driver who took them into this hidden valley. “It was great,” she recalled. “There was one beginner poma and a poma up Al’s, which I couldn’t ride — it would lift me into the air. Later, when the backside was first opened, I remember skiing the miles-long Rubezahl back to the base, past a frozen waterfall and across a beaver pond.” For Mayer, it is like a dream come true. “I never thought we’d be here so long,” he recalled recently while sitting in a quiet corner against windows half buried in snow. “It was never about the business. We were so busy creating the situation, creating the ski area with Ernie Blake [the Swiss-born founder of Taos Ski Valley]. It was much more the lifestyle.” Born in Paris, Mayer grew up in the French Alps, living in Chamonix, among other locales. “I would go to school on skis. It was more a way of life than a recreational sport,” Mayer said. “Then it was wartime, and we moved around a lot because my dad was in the French Underground.”

him ample time to rebuild strength in his left leg. “I don’t want to say I’ll be back at the top of my game,” Bryant said. “Because everybody is going to think I’m crazy, and it’s the old-playernot-letting-go sort of thing. But that’s what it’s going to be.” Bryant missed the first 19 games of this season after tearing his left Achilles tendon last April, returning Dec. 8. The five-time NBA champion was back in uniform for just 10 days before fracturing the top of his shinbone in Memphis. The Lakers initially thought Bryant could return shortly after six weeks of recovery, but the bone has been slow to heal. “With Kobe’s injury still not healed, the amount of time he’d need to rehab and be ready to play, and the amount of time remaining in the season, we’ve simply run out of time for him to return,” Lakers trainer Gary Vitti said. Los Angeles began the day in a three-way tie for last place in the Western Conference with 29 losses in its last 38 games heading into Thursday’s trip to Oklahoma City. Steve Nash hasn’t been formally shut down for the season, but D’Antoni indicated it’s also unlikely the two-time MVP guard will return this season. The 40-year-old Nash, who has one year left on his contract, has played in only 10 games this season while dealing with back problems and related woes. D’Antoni said Jordan Hill and Nick Young are both unlikely to play on the Lakers’ upcoming two-game road trip, but Gasol is probable despite skipping part of practice Wednesday.

Heart: Mayer arrived in 1957 Continued from Page B-5 When the war ended, Mayer skied for the French junior national team; became director of the ski patrol at Garmisch, Germany; and worked with the U.S. 10th Mountain Division as a trainer and coach. During the 1956 Hungarian uprising, he led revolutionaries out of Hungary. He was proposed for a medal of honor, but instead, he asked to be allowed to settle in the United States. He had gotten to know the head of the U.S. Ski Patrol, Bill Judd (now a member of the Colorado Ski Hall of Fame), and he recommended Mayer to Ernie Blake. Also putting in a good word for Mayer was Pete Seibert, another 10th Mountain Division veteran who was soon to launch his own area in Colorado — Vail. With the training he received in cooking and hospitality at l’Ecole Hoteliere in Nice, and a stint at the Hotel Pierre in New York City when he first arrived in this country, Mayer arrived in Taos in 1957 to serve as the director of fledgling Taos Ski Valley’s ski school and its only overnight accommodation, the Hondo Lodge. “I worked at the Hondo, but right away, I started building this, little by little,” Mayer said. “We began with the room where the fireplace is — very small. I lived in a trailer. It was rough. It was tough. We had running water in a hose and it would freeze, so we’d make fires to thaw it out.” Mayer attributes much of the St. B.’s success of the to Chilton Anderson, who put up the initial funds for the hotel and secured the hotel’s hosting of the annual summer Taos School of Music. “I have a great allegiance to the family for helping me get started,” he said. Family is a big word around the St. Bernard: The extended family of staff, the family friendships forged here, and the Mayer family roots. This winter, two of Mayer’s eight children were working at the hotel (a third, Monique Jacobson, is the New Mexico secretary of tourism). Kailani Mayer, just out of art college, is spending her first full season on staff. “The hotel is not-so by the book,” Kailani Mayer said. “We don’t just feel like we are the servers or the cooks. We get to know our customers and each other year after year, and you build relationships. It’s more of an exchange. It’s not that we are trying to maintain ‘old school’ style, but rather authenticity and integrity.” Bartender Evan Blish, who has worked alongside fellow bartender Mike Kierst and waitress

Andrea Heckman for 35 years or more, said, “It’s all can be attributed to Jean, really. He is larger than life and such a special person.” Blish said that most staff have separate lives, jobs and businesses. He, for instance, was the top-ranked MLS real estate agent in Taos in 2013. “I don’t have to be doing this,” Blish said. “But we love being a part of what he has created here, his graciousness and magnanimous character.” The St. B, Blish noted, is where he met his wife, a fellow employee, and his children grew up running around the hotel. The open-air deck of the hotel is the best spot in New Mexico for après-skis on a warm afternoon. For 32 years, this has been the realm of deck manager Greg Jaramillo, who began started work as a dishwasher. “People who work here generally don’t leave,” he said. “Jean treats his employees well — he even buys all staff a season pass — and we all pull together to make it happen.” The list of age-old employees goes on — from the chef of 30-plus years Claude Gohard (now retired) and St. Bernard Condos manager Kathy Humphries, a veteran of 31 years, to the third generation of women cleaning the rooms. It is after dinner — a delicious meal served personally by Mayer with his typical flair and style. We are sated on a light soup, grass-fed, organic filet mignon topped with a shallot butter sauce and dab of fried goose pate, Portobello mushrooms stuffed with goat cheese, a smoked trout salad, a fricassee of potatoes and desert. Mayer is tired. Soon, he will make the drivedown-valley to Arroyo Seco, where he now lives after spending 21 years residing at the ski area. Still the technical director of the ski school, he will serve breakfast the following day, then lead the hardest-charging skiers in the ski school out for a morning lesson. After serving lunch, he’ll catching a nap before dinner; then do it all again the next day. Where does he find the energy? He looks to the slopes above the hotel glinting in the moonlight. “We still have a family working here at the St. Bernard and throughout the valley — it is not just an individual or two,” he said. “And our guests will continue to come back because of the magic of Taos Ski Valley. The magic is really in the mountain. It is stronger than anyone. You either bow down to the mountain and flex with it, or you move away. I trust in the mountain to provide what we need.”

I prefer not to share my home with other dogs, and I’m a little fearful of the unpredictable behavior of toddlers, but older children and teenagers would be GREAT company for me. I have very good house manners, and I love to spend time inside with my family. I am neutered and have all my shots and a microchip.

I recently began driving my 2007 Dodge Caliber around with a “carstache” mustache on the grill. Don’t ask me why, but I did. While driving with it on, I’ve noticed that the external temperature gauge reads particularly high, maybe

around 20 degrees higher than the actual outside temperature. I have glanced at the engine temperature gauge, and it’s completely fine. I figure the mustache isn’t letting air run over the radiator su∞ciently, but if the engine isn’t overheating, I’m guessing it’s not awful. Is this something to be worried about? Thanks. -- Nathan RAY: Nah. I’d worry more about your ability to ever get a date again, Nathan. My brother wanted to put one of those big, pink carstaches on his car, and I told him it would be easier to just get a bumper sticker that says “Dork.” TOM: But I already have one of those! Actually, I disagree with my

brother. These things are just playful, harmless fun. I like ‘em. And they’re a lot more familyfriendly than, say, truck ... danglers. I’m with you, Nathan. Keep the carstache. RAY: Actually, I think the pink ones indicate that you’re part of a carsharing service, in some areas. So don’t use a pink one unless you want strangers to hop in when you stop at red lights. TOM: What’s happening is that your carstache is blocking the temperature sensor that reads the outside temperature. It sits right in front of the radiator on most cars. RAY: That’s what’s causing you to get an incorrect reading of the outside temperature on the dashboard. But I doubt it’s having any





Dear Tom and Ray:

noticeable e≠ect on airflow through the radiator at all. You can confirm that, if the engine temperature gauge is reading right where it’s always been. TOM: I mean, you’re right to at least be concerned about whether you’re blocking the radiator. In general, that’s not a good idea. And maybe if you were sporting something thicker, like a Tom Selleck, you could possibly block enough air flow to make the engine run hotter than it should. RAY: Yeah, so I’d recommend going with more of a John Waters. TOM: Of even better, maybe just a soul patch that hangs down below the license plate. Have fun, Nathan.

DE IDENTIFICACIÓN EPA: NM5890110518 El Departamento del Medio Ambiente de Nuevo México (Departamento) proporciona este aviso público de audiencia pública y de la oportunidad para que el público comente acerca de una acción pendiente ante el Departamento, relativa a los Laboratorios Nacionales Sandia (SNL por su sigla en inglés o Instalaciones). Específicamente, el Departamento tiene la intención de emitir un permiso correspondiente a residuos peligrosos (Permiso) de SNL para el manejo, el almacenamiento y el tratamiento de residuos peligrosos y mixtos, conforme a la Ley de Residuos Peligrosos de Nuevo México (HWA) y el reglamento para su implementación. El Departamento también tiene la intención de aprobar el estado de acción correctiva completa (CAC) para 24 unidades de manejo de residuos sólidos y áreas de preocupación (unidades SWMU/áreas AOC). El Departamento debe darse a la tarea de emitir un Permiso que garantice que las operaciones con residuos peligrosos de SNL se lleven a cabo de manera que protejan la salud de las personas y el medio ambiente. SNL genera residuos peligrosos y mixtos que están regulados por la Ley Federal de Recuperación y Conservación de Recursos (RCRA), la Ley de Nuevo México para Residuos Peligrosos (Capítulo 74, Artículo 4 NMSA 1978), y el Reglamento de Nuevo México para el Manejo de Residuos Peligrosos (20.4.1 NMAC o HWMR). Residuos mixtos son residuos radioactivos que también son residuos peligrosos según lo definido por la ley HWA y están, por lo tanto, sujetos a las normas del Departamento. Actualmente, las Instalaciones funcionan bajo un permiso emitido por el Departamento el 6 de agosto de 1992, el cual autoriza el manejo, el tratamiento y el almacenamiento de residuos peligrosos en las Instalaciones. SNL es un laboratorio de ingeniería y ciencias para múltiples propósitos que pertenece al Departamento de Energía de los Estados Unidos (DOE) y está administrado por Sandia Corporation (una dependencia de Lockheed Martin, Inc.). DOE y Sandia Corporation se denominan conjuntamente “Permisionarios” en el Permiso propuesto y “Permisionarios” o “Solicitantes” en este Aviso Público. SNL está ubicado dentro de los límites de la Base de la Fuerza Aérea Kirtland (KAFB) en un terreno que pertenece al DOE, al Departamento de Defensa de los Estados Unidos y al Servicio Forestal de los Estados Unidos. Colectivamente, estos terrenos están situados al sur de Albuquerque en la zona central norte de Nuevo México. Las Instalaciones están divididas en cinco áreas geográficas menores conocidas como áreas técnicas (TA) y varias áreas remotas mayores para pruebas (Área de Pruebas Foothills, Área de Pruebas Central Coyote, Área de Pruebas Southwest y Área de Pruebas Canyons). Las Instalaciones ocupan 2,820 acres (4.4 millas cuadradas). Las oficinas administrativas de SNL están ubicadas en las siguientes direcciones postales: Sandia Corporation, 1515 Eubank Boulevard SE, Albuquerque, New Mexico, 87123; y la Oficina Local de Sandia del DOE en KAFB-East, Pennsylvania & H Street, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87116. La información de contacto con los Solicitantes de esta acción es: Mr. David Rast, NNSA/Sandia Site Office, DOE, Post Office Box 5400, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87185. I.

Los Solicitantes presentaron ante el Departamento una solicitud de permiso para almacenar y tratar residuos peligrosos en SNL según la ley HWA. El Permiso propuesto se basa en esta solicitud y el reglamento HWMR. Originalmente, el Departamento publicó un proyecto de permiso para recibir comentarios del público durante un período que transcurrió desde el 20 de agosto de 2007 hasta el 19 de octubre de 2007. NMED recibió una solicitud de parte de los Solicitantes para prolongar el período para recibir comentarios del público y, el 16 de octubre de 2007, NMED otorgó 60 días adicionales para recibir comentarios del público, con lo cual extendió el período hasta el 18 de diciembre de 2007. Luego de otorgar la prolongación el 16 de octubre de 2007, NMED recibió dos pedidos más de los grupos de defensa del público para prolongar el período para recibir comentarios del público 30 días adicionales. NMED otorgó 30 días adicionales al período para recibir comentarios del público, el cual finalizó el 17 de enero de 2008.

Conjuntamente con los Solicitantes y otras personas interesadas, NMED intentó resolver los asuntos mencionados por los oponentes al Permiso, según lo exigido por HWMR. Como resultado de estas conversaciones, el Departamento publicó un permiso propuesto revisado y solicitó comentarios del público desde el 17 de septiembre de 2012 hasta el 16 de noviembre de 2012. NMED recibió pedidos adicionales para prolongar el período para recibir comentarios del público, y otorgó 90 días adicionales hasta el 14 de febrero de 2013, por un período total de 150 días. El Departamento, en forma conjunta con los Solicitantes y otras personas interesadas, ha intentado resolver los asuntos que dieran lugar a la oposición al permiso propuesto revisado. Conforme a, el Departamento proporcionará, en su aviso de intención de presentar testimonio técnico, una recomendación para aprobar con condiciones el Permiso propuesto de 2012 con revisiones adicionales resultantes de estas negociaciones. Una vez finalizado, el Permiso permitirá que los Solicitantes acepten, manejen, traten y almacenen residuos peligrosos y mixtos en 9 unidades de manejo de residuos peligrosos en SNL antes de transferir los residuos a instalaciones externas de tratamiento o depósito. El Permiso también exigirá que los Solicitantes: 1) manejen los residuos peligrosos y mixtos conforme a las condiciones y limitaciones del permiso para proteger la salud de las personas y el medio ambiente, 2) lleven a cabo actividades de acción correctiva en las unidades SWMU/áreas AOC no cubiertas por la Orden de cumplimiento por consentimiento del 29 de abril de 2004, y 3) realicen el cuidado posterior al cierre de la Unidad de Administración de Acción Correctiva. Bajo la autoridad de la ley HWA y del reglamento HWMR, el Departamento, a la espera de más comentarios del público, también intenta aprobar el estado de CAC para 24 unidades SWMU/áreas AOC de SNL. Los casos de cada una de las unidades SWMU/áreas AOC para las que se peticionó el estado de CAC se trataron en uno o más de los siguientes pedidos relativos al permiso por parte de los Permisionarios: Una solicitud de modificación de permiso del 14 de marzo de 2006 relativa a 26 unidades SWMU/áreas AOC; una solicitud del 7 de enero de 2008 relativa a 5 unidades SWMU/áreas AOC adicionales; y una solicitud del 16 de marzo de 2012 relativa a una unidad SWMU adicional. (La cantidad total de unidades SWMU/áreas AOC implicadas en la presente acción del permiso no es 32 debido a que para tres de ellas se actuó separadamente y cinco de ellas están siendo sometidas a caracterizaciones adicionales a pedido del Departamento). Por medio de este aviso, el Departamento anuncia una audiencia pública para aceptar comentarios adicionales del público y para proporcionarles a los interesados una oportunidad razonable para presentar datos, puntos de vista y argumentos, además de tomar testimonio relativo a las peticiones de CAC y el Permiso, antes de tomar una acción final en estos asuntos.

NEW MEXICO ENVIRONMENT DEPARTMENT Hazardous Waste Bureau 2905 Rodeo Park Drive East, Building 1 Santa Fe, New Mexico 87505-6303 Phone (505) 476-6000 Fax (505) 476-6030 PUBLIC NOTICE No. 14-01 NEW MEXICO ENVIRONMENT DEPARTMENT HAZARDOUS WASTE BUREAU SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO March 10, 2014 NOTICES FOR PUBLIC COMMENT AND HEARING ON: 1) THE PROPOSED HAZARDOUS WASTE FACILITY PERMIT; 2) THE INTENT TO APPROVE CORRECTIVE ACTION COMPLETE (CAC) STATUS FOR 24 SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT UNITS (SWMUs)/AREAS OF CONCERN (AOCs) SANDIA NATIONAL LABORATORIES EPA ID No. NM5890110518 The New Mexico Environment Department (Department) provides this public notice of a public hearing, and the opportunity for the public to comment on a pending action before the Department regarding Sandia National Laboratories (SNL, or the Facility). Specifically, the Department intends to issue a hazardous waste permit (Permit) to SNL to manage, store, and treat hazardous and mixed waste, pursuant to the New Mexico Hazardous Waste Act (HWA) and its implementing regulations. The Department also intends to approve corrective action complete (CAC) status for 24 solid waste management units and areas of concern (SWMUs/AOCs). The Department must undertake to issue a Permit that ensures that SNL’s hazardous waste operations are managed in a manner protective of human health and the environment. SNL generates hazardous and mixed wastes that are regulated under the U.S. Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the New Mexico Hazardous Waste Act (Chapter 74, Article 4 NMSA 1978), and the New Mexico Hazardous Waste Management Regulations (20.4.1 NMAC or HWMR). Mixed waste is radioactive waste that is also a hazardous waste as defined by the HWA, and is thus subject to regulation by the Department. The Facility currently operates under a permit the Department issued on August 6, 1992, which authorizes the management, treatment and storage of hazardous waste at the Facility. SNL is a multi-purpose engineering and science laboratory owned by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and operated by Sandia Corporation (a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin, Inc.). The DOE and Sandia Corporation are collectively referred to as the “Permittees” in the proposed Permit and as “the Permittees” or “the Applicants” in this Public Notice. SNL is located within the boundaries of Kirtland Air Force Base (KAFB) on land owned by the DOE, the U. S. Department of Defense, and the U. S. Forest Service. Collectively, these lands are situated south of Albuquerque in north-central New Mexico. The Facility is divided into five smaller geographical areas known as technical areas (TAs) and several large remote test areas (Foothills Test Area, Central Coyote Test Area, Southwest Test Area, and Canyons Test Area). The Facility occupies 2,820 acres (4.4 square miles). The administrative offices of SNL are located at the following mailing addresses: Sandia Corporation, 1515 Eubank Boulevard SE, Albuquerque, New Mexico, 87123; and the DOE Sandia Site Office at KAFB-East, Pennsylvania & H Street, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87116. The Applicants’ primary contact and address for this action is: Mr. David Rast, NNSA/Sandia Site Office, DOE, Post Office Box 5400, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87185. I.


The Applicants submitted to the Department an application for a permit to store and treat hazardous wastes at SNL under the HWA. The proposed Permit is based on this application and the HWMR. The Department originally issued a draft permit for public comment during a period that ran from August 20, 2007 through October 19, 2007. NMED received a request from the Applicants to extend the public comment period; and on October 16, 2007, NMED granted an additional 60 days to the public comment period, extending it until December 18, 2007. After issuance of the October 16, 2007 extension, NMED received two more requests from public advocacy groups to extend the public comment period for an additional 30 days. NMED granted an additional 30 days to the public


In conjunction with the Applicants and other interested persons, NMED attempted to resolve issues raised by the Permit opponents, as required by the HWMR. As a result of these discussions, the Department issued a revised proposed permit and solicited public comment from September 17, 2012 to November 16, 2012. NMED received additional requests to extend the public comment period; and granted an additional 90 days until February 14, 2013, for a total period of 150 days. The Department, in conjunction with the Applicants and other interested persons, has attempted to resolve the issues giving rise to the opposition on the revised proposed permit. In accordance with, the Department will provide in its notice of intent to present technical testimony a recommendation to approve with conditions the 2012 proposed Permit with further revisions resulting from these negotiations. When finalized, the Permit will allow the Applicants to accept, manage, treat and store hazardous and mixed waste at 9 hazardous waste management units at SNL prior to transferring the waste to off-site treatment or disposal facilities. The Permit would also require the Applicants to: 1) manage hazardous and mixed waste in accordance with permit conditions and limitations to protect human health and the environment, 2) conduct corrective action activities at SWMUs/AOCs not covered by an April 29, 2004 Compliance Order on Consent, and 3) conduct post-closure care at the Corrective Action Management Unit. Under the authority of the HWA and the HWMR, the Department, pending further public input, also intends to approve CAC status for 24 SWMUs/AOCs at SNL. Each of the SWMUs/AOCs petitioned for CAC status was addressed in one or more of the following permitting requests from the Permittees: a March 14, 2006, permit modification request regarding 26 SWMU/AOCs; a January 7, 2008 request regarding 5 additional SWMUs/AOCs; and a March 16, 2012 request regarding one additional SWMU. (The number of SWMUs/AOCs involved in this present permitting action does not total 32 because three have been acted on separately and five are undergoing additional characterization requested by the Department).
