5-4 decision echoes Citizens United ruling By Adam Liptak

The New York Times

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Wednesday continued its abolition of limits on election spending, striking down a decades-old cap on the total amount any individual can contribute to federal candidates in a two-year election cycle. The ruling, issued near the start of a campaign season, will very likely increase the role money plays in U.S. politics. The 5-4 decision, with the court’s more conservative members in the majority, echoed Citizens United, the 2010 decision that struck down limits on independent campaign spending by corporations and unions. Wednesday’s decision seemed to alter campaign finance law in subtle but important ways, notably by limiting the kinds of reasons the government can offer to justify laws said to restrict the exercise of First Amendment rights in the form of campaign contributions. The court’s 88-page decision reflected sharply different visions of the meaning of the First Amendment and the role of government in regulating elections, with the majority deeply skeptical of government efforts to control participation in politics, and

N.M. Dems blast ruling By Steve Terrell The New Mexican

Some Democratic members of New Mexico’s congressional delegation released statements Wednesday blasting a U.S. Supreme Court decision that eliminates a restriction on how much money big campaign donors can spend in an election. The McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission ruling strikes down 40-year-old aggregate limits for political contributors to candidates for federal office. Prior to the ruling, a contributor could only spend up to $123,000 on candidates and party committees during a single election cycle. U.S. Sen. Tom Udall said in a statement Wednesday that the Supreme Court ruling “returns the campaign finance system to Watergate-era rules — the same rules that fostered corruption, outraged voters and prompted campaign finance regulations in the first place.”

department says the changes were not critical and did not weaken oversight. Workers on Wednesday reentered the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant for the first time since the Feb. 14 leak. Wearing anti-contamination suits with powered airbreathing units, two eight-person teams surveyed conditions in the sprawling underground facility and did not detect any airborne contamination, U.S. Department of Energy officials said. The federal officials called it a “critical first step” toward allowing workers to travel farther into the salt bed to identify the suspected source of the release. But officials have yet to give a timeline on when the plant will reopen, forcing the lab and other nuclear facilities to find new places to deposit their radioactive waste. The lab has been under pressure to remove all of its transuranic legacy waste by June 2014 under a deadline set by the state. The first shipment of waste from the lab arrived Wednesday at the facility in

ALBUQUERQUE — Responding to what she called the tragic death of a 9-year-old Albuquerque boy, Gov. Susana Martinez introduced more than a dozen policy changes and directives Wednesday intended to reform the way child abuse cases are investigated in New Mexico. The moves came in response to criticism that the system did not do enough to protect Omaree Varela of Albuquerque, who police said was kicked to death by his mother after previous reports of abuse. Martinez personally reviewed the case and spent the past three months with other state officials, taking a broader look at how child abuse and neglect investigations were being handled. “Omaree died in a manner that no child should ever experience,” the governor said. “He was betrayed by the one person who should have loved him and protected him the most, and that was his mother.” Martinez intends to sign a number of executive orders requiring caseworkers to review police reports and other documents before making any investigative decisions, and to establish child advocacy centers around the state where caseworkers will meet regularly with authorities to investigate reports of child abuse or neglect. Part of the governor’s focus will be on Valencia County, which she

os Alamos National Laboratory has begun shipping radioactive material to a private waste storage facility in Texas after a radiation leak in February forced the federal nuclear waste repository near Carlsbad to shut down. But a watchdog group worries that the lab’s waste containers are being shipped under a regulatory regime they say has been weakened over the past several years, culminating with a change in 2013 that brought an end to mandatory chemical testing. “In 2013, all of the real inspections of the containers at all the generating sites were stopped,” said Don Hancock, director of the Nuclear Waste Safety program and an administrator at the Southwest Research and Information Center in Albuquerque. “So almost for the last year, there hasn’t been a requirement for shipments to WIPP [the Carlsbad nuclear waste plant] to have more than paperwork for the containers.”

Environment Department officials confirmed the containers full of plutonium-contaminated lab tools, rags, soil and other materials shipped from LANL to Texas will be inspected under the same protocols instituted last year. But the

Plus-sized proms Teens want gowns that hug the body, not tent it By Leanne Italie

The Associated Press

NEW YORK aria Giorno has nothing against long gowns with high waists and flowing fabric — dresses that are designed to camouflage curves on plus-size women. But the New Jersey high school senior had no interest in buying a loose-fitting style for her senior prom, even though it was all she could find in a size 16 or so at nearby stores. So many stores, Giorno said, “never have anything that’s a little more sexy or a little form-fitting, or anything like that for my age.” Clothes shopping for plus-size teens can be frustrating in general, but shopping for a dream prom dress can be a tear-inducing, hair-pulling morass of bad design and few options — especially for girls who want a dress that hugs the body instead of tenting it. “It’s like people kind of assume that’s what I want and that’s what I like. I’m 18. I really like the way the tight dresses look,” said Giorno, who plays roller derby and hopes to study music education in college. Consignment shops and organizations that collect donated prom dresses for girls in need also say they can’t get enough plus-size gowns. Shop owner Kristen Harris went on a mission to collect them after a teen left her store empty-handed and in tears. Harris was tagging stock


at her just-opened Designer Diva Consignment Boutique in Abington, Mass., when a plus-size teen shyly approached the ball gowns. “I said, ‘Hey hon, what size are you looking for,’ and she said 22, and that’s when I felt like someone had just kicked me in the stomach, because I knew I didn’t have anything that size,” recalled Harris, who desperately pulled some smaller sizes in stretch fabrics for the girl. Moments later, the teen was crying in the dressing room. So Harris began begging on social media for plus-size consignment and hunted down her young customer through Facebook, offering a private appointment and free dress from about 40 she’d collected. “She was so sweet,” Harris said. “I just couldn’t get her out of my head.” Operation Prom, which offers free donated dresses to girls in need in eight states, has also had to hunt for plus-size dresses. Noel D’Allacco, founder of the decade-old project, took in about 7,000 gently used dresses and new ones from corporate partners last year, but only about 700 were size 18 and up, she said. Sixteen percent of women’s clothing sold in the U.S. is size 14 and up, according to the market research group NPD. But the plus-size women’s business has “pretty much been ignored by the big stores,” said Marshal Cohen, NPD’s chief retail analyst. J.C. Penney sells plus-size prom dresses online only and offers just three styles. Target does not sell, in its brick-and-mortar stores, dressier styles appropriate for prom in any size, but the company does sell them

online. Other retailers restrict all plus-size clothing to websites. “Manufacturers are starting to create more plus-size prom dresses, but they are just not as readily available,” said a Penney spokeswoman, Sarah Holland. Phyllis Librach in St. Louis, Mo., knows the heartache of the dress search as both a mother and a dress designer who specializes in plus sizes for special occasions. She started her business 10 years ago. Librach now designs and manufactures her own styles, including prom dresses sizes 14 to 40, which she sells on her site,, and through

Afghan Interior Ministry attacked as election nears

EVERETT, Wash. — Members of the medical examiner’s office in a Washington county devastated by a mudslide work around the clock to identify bodies. Of the 29 sets of remains delivered so far, just one is still a mystery. Journalists on Wednesday were given a tour of the Snohomish County office in Everett and told about the difficult task of identifying bodies from the March 22 disaster. Spokesman Ed Troyer said all but one man have been identified. The victim doesn’t match reports of those listed as missing. Although 29 people are confirmed dead, officials so far have released the names of only 22.

KABUL — A suicide bomber attacked the Afghan Interior Ministry on Wednesday, killing six police officers. The incident comes three days before the country’s presidential election, as the Taliban attempts to carry out high-profile attacks to deter voters and delegitimize the pivotal vote. Most Afghans say the slew of attacks will not deter them from voting, but many here remain worried about the prospect of escalating violence in the coming days.

7.6 magnitute-aftershock rattles Chile’s coast IQUIQUE, Chile — A powerful 7.6-magnitude aftershock hit Chile’s far-northern coast late Wednesday night, shaking the same area where a magnitude-8.2 earthquake hit just a day before causing some damage and six deaths. Chile’s Emergency Office and navy issued a tsunami alert and ordered a precautionary evacuation of low-lying areas on the northern coast. The aftershock caused buildings to shake and people to run out into the streets in the port of Iquique, which was one of the cities that saw some damage from Tuesday night’s big quake. But there were no immediate reports of new damage or injuries. The aftershock was centered 12 miles south of Iquique at a depth of 25 miles , the U.S Geological Survey said.

NEW YORK — Amazon is making a bid to enter living rooms with Amazon Fire TV, a new streaming device that delivers online video, music and other content to televisions. The company says the $99 device has better speed, performance and search functions than other streaming boxes such as Apple TV and Google Chromecast. But Amazon is coming late to the streaming device game, and it remains to be seen whether the company is offering enough new and better services to lure customers away from their current streaming methods. Amazon created buzz about the device last week when it sent an invitation to the media hinting about an update to its video service. It debuted the box at Milk Studios in New York to about 200 media members, offering movie snacks like popcorn and Milk Duds. The device, about the size of a CD case, runs Google’s Android operating system and offers Netflix, Hulu and other streaming channels in addition to Amazon Prime instant video. It comes with a Bluetooth remote, which lets users search for video by talking to the remote. Customers will get a free 30-day trial subscription to Netflix and Amazon Prime when they buy a Fire TV. Amazon Vice President Peter Larsen said the retailer sells millions of streaming media devices each year, and its own box is an effort to address three complaints it commonly hears from customers: search is too clunky, there is not an open ecosystem that allows people to use several different streaming systems and performance isn’t good enough. Fire TV also offers a range of other services, including channels like YouTube and Pandora and “Free Time,” a customizable interface for children. The box, which starts shipping today, will also feature thousands of free and paid games like Minecraft and Disney Pixar’s Monsters University starting next month. Games can be played using the remote. An optional Fire game controller will be available for $39.99. One analyst called the offering “underwhelming,” however. Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter said the device is too expensive. He also said Amazon missed a chance to lure more Prime customers by offering six-months free of the service to Fire TV owners. “I don’t really get it,” he said. “There’s no real meaningful advantage to buying the box.”

NATO: Russia poised to invade By Michael R. Gordon The New York Times

Spy in prison could be key to peace talks By Josef Federman

Jonathan Pollard

JERUSALEM — In an improbable twist, the fate of an imprisoned American who spied for Israel could now play a big role in rescuing Middle East peace negotiations after a dramatic Palestinian rebuff to Secretary of State John Kerry. With Kerry’s efforts in tatters, a three-way deal that includes the United States releasing Jonathan Pollard could provide incentives for Israel and the Palestinians to break the deadlock and extend the talks. But critics say the sudden focus on Pollard has turned attention away from the real issues that need to be addressed to end decades of conflict. And it may have raised the Palestinians’ asking price: They realize that with Israel so eager to free Pollard, they may be able to hold out for broader Israeli concessions. Palestinian officials, for instance, say they have discussed the possibility of seeking the release of the top Palestinian prisoner held by Israel, Marwan Barghouti, as part of any arrangement involving Pollard. The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to disclose internal deliberations, said they have to date been hesitant to raise the issue in connection with Pollard for fear of being seen as meddling in internal American affairs. Negotiations on a peace deal hit a major snag late Tuesday when Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas abruptly renewed a campaign for recognition of the “state of Palestine” in international bodies. Abbas had promised to suspend the campaign when peace talks resumed in July but angrily reversed course after Israel failed to carry out a promised prisoner release. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the U.S. was “disappointed by the unhelpful unilateral actions that both parties have taken in recent days.” He said Kerry remains in close touch with negotiating teams, but added that the parties “must take the necessary steps if they want to move forward.” Palestinian officials said Wednesday they had no desire to quit the negotiations. “We hope that Kerry renews his efforts in the coming days,” Yasser Abed Rabbo, a top Palestinian official, said in the West Bank town of Ramallah Pollard, a former U.S. Navy intelligence analyst convicted of handing reams of classified documents to Israel in the 1980s, could play a key role in that mission. Pollard, who is 59 and said to be in poor health, became an unlikely part of the negotiations this week when U.S. officials

acknowledged they were considering releasing him as part of a package to extend talks beyond the current April 29 deadline. The admission marked a dramatic turnaround for the U.S. and reflected Kerry’s sense of urgency. After more than 10 trips to the region and numerous phone calls with Israeli and Palestinian leaders, Kerry has a great personal stake in keeping his efforts afloat. A person involved in the talks said Tuesday that Pollard was the centerpiece of an emerging plan to extend talks through the end of the year. In return, Israel would carry out a promised release of some 30 long-serving Palestinian prisoners, commit to the release of an additional 400 prisoners, and impose a partial freeze on settlement construction on occupied lands claimed by the Palestinians. Pollard, a Jewish American who has been granted Israeli citizenship, is widely seen in Israel as a martyr who has been excessively punished. Images of Netanyahu welcoming him home for Passover — the Jewish holiday of liberation from bondage in ancient Egypt — would give the Israeli leader a tremendous public boost. Pollard’s return would also make it far easier for Netanyahu to win approval for concessions to the Palestinians inside his hard-line coalition. The issue marks a highstakes gamble for Kerry. If Pollard’s freedom leads to a final peace settlement, it could mark a major victory. But if Pollard is freed and the talks fail, it could be a costly embarrassment. Yossi Beilin, a former Israeli peace negotiator, said the U.S. has made a grave mistake by focusing so heavily on Pollard while ignoring the key issues at the heart of the conflict. He said the U.S. should try to broker an interim agreement and present a “vision” for a permanent peace. The Americans “ended up being the only ones who are ready to make compromises, namely the release of Pollard,” Beilin said. “This is very ridiculous. The Americans are not part of our game. They should have been mediators, but found themselves major players and major payers.”

BRUSSELS — NATO’s top commander said Wednesday that the 40,000 troops Russia has within striking distance of Ukraine are poised to attack on 12 hours’ notice and could accomplish their military objectives within three to five days. President Vladimir Putin of Russia told Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany on Monday that the Kremlin was beginning to withdraw troops from the border area near Ukraine. But the NATO commander, Gen. Philip M. Breedlove, said in an interview with The New York Times that so far only a single battalion, a force of 400 to 500 troops, is on the move and that NATO intelligence could not say whether it was actually being withdrawn. “What we can say now is that we do see a battalion size unit moving, but what we can’t confirm is that it is leaving the battlefield,” said Breedlove, of the U.S. Air Force. “Whether that movement is aft to a less belligerent configuration or returning to barracks, we do not see that.” Breedlove said the Russian force that remains is a potent mix of warplanes, helicopter units, artillery, infantry and commandos with field hospitals and sufficient logistics to sustain an incursion into Ukraine. “We believe that it can move within 12 hours,” he said. “Essentially the force is ready to go. We believe it could accomplish its objective between three to five days,” he said. Breedlove said the Russian presence might be intended as a “coercive force” during the West’s talks with Russia about Ukraine’s future and as Ukraine prepares for a presidential election in late May. If the Kremlin decides to intervene militarily, Breedlove added, the force could be used to establish a land link to Crimea, the peninsula in southern Ukraine that Russia annexed last month, so that it does not have to supply it by sea. The Russian force is also capable, he said, of carrying out a thrust to Odessa, moving to Transnistria, the Russian enclave in Moldova, or intervening in areas in eastern Ukraine. “I think they have all the opportunities and they can make whatever decision they want,” Breedlove added. In January, the United States informed NATO allies that Russia had tested a groundlaunched cruise missile, raising serious questions about Moscow’s compliance with its arms control obligations. Breedlove said he did not know if the Russians had deployed the cruise missile, adding that this would be hard to determine since it resembles permitted shortrange systems.

Shooting: Suspect was Iraq War veteran Continued from Page A-1 been under examination to determine whether he had post-traumatic stress disorder. “We are digging deep into his background,” Milley said. Milley said the soldier opened fire with a .45-caliber Smith & Wesson semiautomatic pistol that was purchased recently but was not authorized to be brought on the post. He was eventually confronted by a female military police officer. He put his hands up but then pulled out a gun from under his jacket. “She engaged,” Milley said, and then the soldier put the gun to his head and shot himself. The shooting was the third major gun attack at a U.S. military installation in five years, leaving the nation grappling with the prospect of yet more flag-draped funerals for troops killed on the homefront. A government contractor went on a shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard in September, leaving 12 people dead. In 2009, Army Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire on a group of soldiers at Fort Hood preparing to deploy to Iraq and Afghanistan, killing 13 people and wounding more than 30. Doctors at the Scott & White hospital in Temple, Texas, said Wednesday that they have treated eight of the wounded and that one more was on the way. Three of the patients were in critical condition in the ICU, and five were in serious condition. Seven of them were male, and one was female. Their injuries ranged from mild to life-threatening, a majority of them caused by single-gunshot wounds to the neck, chest and abdomen. President Barack Obama said he was “heartbroken that something like this might have happened again.” Speaking in Chicago, he pledged “to get to the bottom of exactly what happened.” Although bases such as Fort Hood contain large storehouses of armaments, and many of their inhabitants have spent years at war, military posts are usually among the most idyllic communities in

the country, a throwback to the 1950s, with manicured lawns, drivers who conscientiously abide by the speed limit and parents unafraid to allow their children to frolic out of sight. In the wake of the Navy Yard shooting, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered a series of security changes at military installations, including more rigorous screening of personnel and the creation of an analysis center to examine “insider threats.” “When we have these kinds of tragedies on our bases, something’s not working,” he said Wednesday evening during a visit to Hawaii. “We will continue to address the issue. Anytime you lose your people to these kinds of tragedies, it’s an issue, it’s a problem.” Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that many questions remained about the shooting but that a principal initial focus was to support the victims and their families. “This is a community that has faced and overcome crises with resilience and strength,” he said in a statement. Soldiers based at Fort Hood were called upon, often repeatedly, to deploy to Iraq and Afghanistan over the past decade. Those combat tours have exacted a profound physical and emotional toll on many

troops. Others have rebounded quickly and are continuing their military careers or are transitioning into the civilian world. Dozens of ambulances and law enforcement vehicles converged on the scene after the shooting. Several of the wounded were transported to area hospitals. The post was placed on lockdown for much of the afternoon, with loudspeakers across the facility urging people to shelter in place. The order was lifted in the early evening, once law enforcement authorities had determined that a sole gunman was responsible for the shooting. With the exception of military police officers, soldiers at Fort Hood and all other U.S. military installations are not armed or permitted to carry privately owned firearms. The restrictions on personal weapons were expanded in the wake of the 2009 massacre and an epidemic of suicides at Fort Hood, which is the largest active-duty armored post in the country. Current policy requires soldiers to register their personal weapons with their commanders and to keep those weapons in a secured room. Hasan was convicted of multiple counts of murder last year and sentenced to death. He is on death row at the military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.

Waste: First shipment arrives in Texas Continued from Page A-1 Andrews, Texas, operated by Waste Control Specialists. While investigators still don’t know what caused the leak at WIPP, Hancock said human error, equipment failure, a roof collapse in the underground storage facilities or an explosion related to chemicals in the containers are among the possible causes of the radiation leak. If a roof collapse, human error and equipment failure are all ruled out as causes, that leaves “either something with the waste in the containers like a chemical reaction, or there’s some other option that the agency hasn’t considered,” Hancock said. The Environment Department, which oversees the WIPP permit, in 2013 stopped requiring chemical tests on waste containers sent to the facility. Chemical testing was not the only way to verify that the contents were permitted at the Carlsbad repository, but it was a critical one, Hancock said. Chemical tests of samples taken from the space at the top of barrels of packed waste — known as head space gas — helped determine the types of materials inside and ensure that barrels with volatile chemicals weren’t incorrectly sent to the facility. From the time WIPP opened in 1999 until 2006, every waste container shipped to the facility had a chemical test done on the head space gas, under the permit issued by the state Environment Department. In 2006, the department approved a change to the permit requested by the Department of Energy and reduced chemical testing, requiring it on only a few waste barrels from a single waste stream. In 2010, the Environment Department, then under Secretary Ron Curry, reviewed the WIPP permit again but kept the chemical test requirement. In 2013, under the direction of new Environment Secretary Ryan Flynn, the WIPP permit was modified to make

chemical testing voluntary. The Environment Department said mandatory chemical testing hadn’t changed any waste designated for WIPP and could still be used “when it is determined to be necessary,” according to responses given during permit hearings. The Environment Department denies the inspection change weakens oversight. “Despite false claims that head space gas inspections of [transuranic] waste containers no longer occur as a result of WIPP permit modifications made in 2006 and 2013, the New Mexico Environment Department continues to require chemical sampling when necessary and appropriate as required by the existing permit,” said Jim Winchester, the department’s communications director. “Since chemical sampling began, the additional information gained has not shown any need for changes to the waste stream disposal requirements. A final analysis of the February incidents at WIPP will dictate what, if any, changes to sampling occur.” Shipments of waste not permitted at WIPP have happened before. In 2004, the federally funded Environmental Evaluation Group expressed concerns about the Department of Energy’s attempt to reduce chemical testing on the waste drums. That same year, workers at WIPP found barrels of waste shipped from the Idaho National Laboratory that didn’t belong in the facility. The Department of Energy temporarily suspended shipments from the lab. About 108 barrels were already stored underground at WIPP before the problem was discovered. In 2006, the federal agency again temporarily suspended shipments to WIPP from the Idaho lab after liquid was found in a waste drum that was supposed to be dry. Then in 2007, the agency suspended shipments from the Department of Energy’s Advanced Mixed Waste Treatment Project in Idaho, operated by Bechtel

BWXT, after workers found the contents of a waste drum hadn’t been properly certified. There’s no evidence yet that a problem with a container caused the leak at WIPP on Feb. 14. WIPP closed after an air monitor detected a radioactive leak in the underground salt caverns. The leak occurred nine days after an underground salt-hauling truck caught on fire. Officials believe the two incidents are unrelated. The Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board, in a March 21 letter to Energy Department Secretary Ernest Moniz, noted, “Operations at the WIPP site were not performed with the rigor necessary for a hazard category 2 defense nuclear facility, especially for operations that were deemed to be nonnuclear in nature. Both the federal and contractor workforce proved unprepared for emergency response. No one was seriously hurt in either event, but these were both near misses.” Until WIPP reopens, Los Alamos will continue to ship its radioactive waste to the Texas facility. A 2005 consent order between the New Mexico Environment Department and Los Alamos National Laboratory required the lab to remove 3,706 cubic meters of transuranic waste stored above ground and ship it to WIPP. Most of the waste dates to the lab’s nuclear research and testing from the Manhattan Project and the Cold War era. The lab is to remove all the legacy waste by June and all the new waste by the end of 2014. The lab expects to ship 120 truckloads of waste containers to the Waste Control Specialists facility in Texas, six miles east of Eunice, N.M. Another 280 truckloads of LANL-related transuranic waste from the Idaho National Laboratory also will be shipped to the Texas facility.

Reforms: Special recruiter to help fill jobs Continued from Page A-1 identified as a high-risk, high-need area concerning child welfare services. “It makes no sense for an officer and a caseworker to investigate the same incident and never share notes or even speak with one another beyond their initial meeting,” Martinez said. In the case involving Varela, Albuquerque police and Children, Youth and Families Department officials have been criticized for not removing the boy from his home after receiving reports of abuse. On Wednesday, Gil Vigil, one of the two Albuquerque police officers under investigation for how they handled an abuse call at the Varela home last June, was fired, said his attorney, Sam Bregman. Vigil did nothing wrong and the firing was unjustified, Bregman said. The boy’s mother, Synthia VarelaCasaus, has pleaded not guilty to more

than 20 charges related to the boy’s death. Rep. Gail Chasey, D-Albuquerque, stressed that boosting caseworker and legal staff would be a key element in reforming New Mexico’s child welfare system. Still, the governor’s initiatives sound like a reasonable beginning, she said. “We absolutely must build a system where children who are in danger are immediately removed from the danger and, on the other hand, where children are not unnecessarily removed from their families,” Chasey said. Martinez said one way to prevent children from falling through the cracks will be a policy change requiring high-level reviews of families who have been investigated at least twice by CYFD. Department Secretary Yolanda Deines said that will ensure greater scrutiny of homes where there appears to be a pattern concerning conduct. State law enforcement officers also will be required to contact CYFD when

dispatched to child welfare calls to determine whether there have been any prior interactions between the agency and the household. The use of smartphones, tablets and other technology to access such information is needed, state officials said. Additionally, the governor announced a pilot program in Bernalillo County to establish a new class of caseworkers known as family support workers, who will work regularly with families that have been the subject of three or more child welfare investigations. To address staffing problems and overwhelming caseloads, Martinez called for the hiring of a special recruiter to work with New Mexico State University and other schools of social work to identify prospects to fill jobs. The state is also boosting compensation for caseworkers to stem turnover and make New Mexico more competitive among neighboring states that are also scrambling to hire social workers.

Cap: Breyer issues a rare oral dissent Continued from Page A-1 the minority saying that such oversight was needed to ensure a functioning democracy. Chief Justice John Roberts Jr., writing for four justices in the controlling opinion, said the overall limits could not survive First Amendment scrutiny. “There is no right in our democracy more basic,” he wrote, “than the right to participate in electing our political leaders.” In a dissent from the bench, Justice Stephen Breyer called the majority opinion a disturbing development that raised the overall contribution ceiling to “the number infinity.” “If the court in Citizens United opened a door,” he said, “today’s decision may well open a floodgate.” Such oral dissents are rare, and they signal deep disagreements. But both Roberts and Breyer also noted from the bench that the other side’s arguments were well presented. Wednesday’s decision did not affect familiar base limits on contributions from individuals to candidates, currently $2,600 per candidate in primary and general elections. But it said that overall limits of $48,600 by individuals every two years for contributions to all federal candidates violated the First Amendment, as did separate aggregate limits on contributions to political party committees, currently $74,600. In his written opinion, Breyer said Wednesday’s decision would allow “a single individual to contribute millions of dollars to a political party or to a candidate’s campaign.” He was joined by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. The ruling, which goes in effect in a matter of weeks, concerned only contributions from individuals. Federal law continues to ban direct contributions by corporations and unions, though they remain free to spend unlimited sums through “super PACs” and similar vehicles. The case, McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, was brought by Shaun McCutcheon, an Alabama businessman, and the Republican National Committee. McCutcheon, who had contributed a total of about $33,000 to 16 candidates for federal office in the 2012 election cycle, said he had wanted to give $1,776 each to 12 more but was stopped by the overall cap for individuals. The party committee said it wanted to receive contributions above the legal limit for political committees. In an interview last fall,

McCutcheon said his goal was to encourage the adoption of conservative principles. “To me,” he said, “being a conservative means smaller government and more freedom.” Roberts said the core purpose of the First Amendment was to protect political speech from government interference, even if many people might welcome it. “They would be delighted to see fewer television commercials touting a candidate’s accomplishments or disparaging an opponent’s character,” the chief justice wrote. “Money in politics may at times seem repugnant to some, but so, too, does much of what the First Amendment vigorously protects. If the First Amendment protects flag burning, funeral protests and Nazi parades — despite the profound offense such spectacles cause — it surely protects political campaign speech despite popular opposition.” The decision chipped away at the central distinction drawn drawn in Buckley v. Valeo, the court’s seminal 1976 campaign finance decision. Independent spending, the court said in Buckley, is political speech protected by the First Amendment. But contributions may be capped, the court said then, in the name of preventing corruption. The court added in passing that aggregate contribution limits were a “quite modest restraint upon protected political activity” that “serves to prevent evasion” of the base limits. Roberts said that brief passage on overall limits had to be reconsidered in light of later regulatory developments and other factors. But he added that the Buckley decision’s general structure remained intact. “We see no need,” he said, “to revisit Buckley’s distinction between contributions and expenditures.” The chief justice said that while the $2,600 base limits were also intact, the overall caps placed an unacceptable burden on “an individual’s right to participate in the public debate through political expression and political association.” “The government may no more restrict how many candidates or causes a donor may support than it may tell a newspaper how many candidates it may endorse,” he wrote. Leveling the playing field is not an acceptable interest for the government, Roberts said. Nor is “the possibility that an individual who spends large sums may garner ‘influence over or access to’ elected officials or political parties,” he added, quoting Citizens United.

Dems: Heinrich says ruling ‘deeply flawed’ Continued from Page A-1 While the decision does not apply to state elections, Viki Harrison, executive director of Common Cause New Mexico, said in a statement, “This decision lays out a welcome mat for corruption here in New Mexico and across the country.” The decision prompted a couple from Santa Barbara, Calif., to protest Tuesday at the state Capitol in Santa Fe. Antonia Robertson and Dr. Laurence Dworet carried handmade signs saying, “Get Big Money Out of Politics” and “Big Money in Politics Kills Democracy.” In general, Democrats and groups that keep tabs on money in politics have denounced the decision, while Republicans have applauded it. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement that the decision is “an important first step toward restoring the voice of candidates and party committees and a vindication for all those who support robust, transparent political discourse.” But Udall, who last year introduced a proposed constitutional amendment that would allow Congress and state governments to pass spending limits for campaigns, said in his statement, “Americans already believe the election system has been fundamentally corrupted by big money from corporate special interests. And today, the

Court has confirmed their fears in its seriously misguided decision, which makes it legal for a few wealthy individuals to flood campaigns with cash, drowning out the voices of regular voters.” Sen. Martin Heinrich agreed. “This deeply flawed Supreme Court decision continues down a path that equates money with speech and corporations with people,” he said in a statement. “Make no mistake; decisions like this one and Citizens United erode the integrity of our political process and the public’s faith in our leaders to do what’s right for the American people.” U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján, D-Santa Fe, said, “Once again, the Supreme Court has struck a blow to our efforts to get money out of politics, and reinforces the importance of passing comprehensive reform that limits the ability of individuals, special interest groups, and corporations to spend endless amounts of money in an effort to unduly influence elections.” Luján pointed out that he’s a co-sponsor of the House version of Udall’s constitutional amendment as well as a co-sponsor of the 2012 Disclose Act, which was aimed at limiting corporate money in campaigns, and legislation to provide public financing of congressional elections.

Wealthy donors’ political muscle to grow after high court ruling By Matea Gold

The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — An elite class of wealthy donors who have gained mounting influence in campaigns now has the ability to exert even greater sway. A Supreme Court decision Wednesday to do away with an overall limit on how much individuals can give candidates and political parties opens a new spigot for money to flow into campaigns already buffeted by huge spending from independent groups. In this year’s midterm races, outside organizations financed by very rich donors, such as the conservative advocacy group Americans for Prosperity, have significantly shaped the campaign landscape with TV ads and other expenditures totaling in the tens of millions of dollars. The ruling by a sharply split court opens the door even wider for a narrow universe of donors to expand their giving by writing single checks for as much as $3.6 million that could flow directly to candidate and party committees. Just 591 donors reached the limit on giving to federal candidates in the 2012 election, according to an analysis by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. Even that small number of contributors has the potential to inject big sums into the system, now that they can give to as many candidates, party committees and PACs as they wish. That could mean a financial infusion for the national parties, whose traditional dominance has been eclipsed in many areas by super PACs and politically active nonprofit groups that can collect unlimited sums. The change could help candidates raise more money to fend off attacks by outside groups, focusing their fundraising on big-dollar givers whose full largess was off-limits until now — and making officeholders more indebted to those wealthy contributors. And it could bring at least some additional transparency to the role of such big donors, whose contributions to many outside political groups are kept secret but whose checks to candidates and party committees must be reported to the Federal Election Commission and publicly disclosed. Supporters of stricter campaign finance rules cast the decision in McCutcheon v. FEC as a sequel to Citizens United, a 2010 case that allowed corporations and labor unions to spend unlimited amounts on independent political activity. That ruling paved the way for the creation of super-PACs and led to the proliferation of nonprofit advocacy groups that engage in campaigns. That development gave new influence to billionaires such as conservative industrialists Charles and David Koch and liberal former hedge fund manager Tom Steyer, who are expected to spend tens of millions of dollars this year. “The Supreme Court is turning our representative

system of government into a sandbox for millionaires and billionaires,” said Fred Wertheimer, president of Democracy 21, a group that advocates for reducing the role of big money in politics. After Wednesday’s ruling, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., long a champion of curbing huge donations, pointed to the influx of money and predicted, “There will be scandal.” Many conservatives, meanwhile, cast the case as a freespeech victory. “This is a good day for candidates, both Republican and Democratic, liberal and conservative,” said Craig Engle, an expert on GOP election law who served as a legal adviser to the team that filed the case on behalf of Alabama businessman Shaun McCutcheon and the Republican National Committee. “This isn’t a threat to democracy — it is democracy,” Engle added. “One of the things that is anti-democratic is when people aren’t allowed to express themselves.” Many Republicans rejected the notion that the new ruling would unleash a flood of new political giving by the rich. “The immediate effect will be that some major donors that would like to max out to multiple committees will have the ability to do so,” said Charlie Spies, a GOP campaign finance lawyer and fundraiser. But, he added, “There is a limited universe of donors that want to give multiple hundreds of thousands of dollar contributions.” Fundraisers for both parties were skeptical about how many donors would take advantage of the new freedom to give beyond the previously allowed maximum, which was set at $123,200 for the 2014 cycle. “It doesn’t actually mean that much more money in the system,” said Wade Randlett, a major Democratic fundraiser in California. “The number of people who actually wanted to give more than that and were not using super-PACs already is not a gigantic number of people.” Those who do take advantage of their new freedom to give more, he added, are mostly likely to be donors “who have a particular legal or administrative result in mind.” In its ruling Wednesday, the court declared unconstitutional a total limit on how much an individual can give federal candidates and parties in a two-year cycle. That limit had been set at $123,200 for this cycle. (The base limits on contributions — $5,200 to a candidate for the cycle — remain untouched.) If the overall limits had been lifted for the 2012 campaign, about 1,200 wealthy donors who hit or came close to the limit on giving to candidates and party committees could have poured an additional $304 million into federal political committees, according to an analysis by the liberal groups Demos and U.S. PIRG. That nearly equals the $313 million that 4 million small donors gave to the campaigns of President Barack Obama and GOP challenger

Thursday, April 3, 2014 THE NEW MEXICAN


Federal campaign finance laws limit how much an individual can give to specific candidates, committees and political action committees (PACs). The U.S. Supreme Court overturned an additional limit on the aggregate giving amount, so now an individual could give millions directly to candidates and parties.

Mitt Romney that cycle. Election lawyers anticipate that both parties will quickly seek ways to take advantage of court’s decision by creating national joint fundraising committees that can singlehandedly raise major sums. A committee made up of the presidential candidate, all the organizations and congressional candidates of one party could solicit a single check for as much as $3.6 million, for example. Some legal experts said the McCutcheon decision could actually redirect some of the money going to secretive outside groups to political committees that must disclose their donors. “The decision should be celebrated by all of us who worry about the polarizing effect of money on politics,” Nathaniel Persily, a constitutional law professor at Stanford University, wrote in an analysis of the case. “A world in which individuals can give limited amounts of disclosed money to a lot of politicians is certainly preferable to one in which large chunks are only given to super-PACs and other unaccountable outside groups.”

But others were skeptical that the decision would fundamentally alter the dynamics and momentum of independent groups. “It’s a good day for political parties in one sense, but do I believe, given the current pressures in the campaign finance system, that this significantly reverses the flow of money back to the parties? No, I don’t think so,” said Robert Bauer, a top Democratic campaign finance lawyer. Although the ruling may amplify the influence of deeppocketed donors, it was not welcome news for many of those who are asked to write the checks. “It’s much more of a curse than a liberation,” said Randlett, who noted that this is the point in the election cycle when many major contributors have reached their limit. “The sound you heard was the collective groan of all cyclemaxed donors.” No longer will donors be able to put off political solicitations by saying, “I can’t give, I am watching my aggregate limits,’ ” noted Engle, the GOP lawyer. “Now you don’t have a legal excuse.”

HARTFORD, Conn. — A smorgasbord of options and lower prices for consumers were two of the chief selling points for President Barack Obama as he promoted his overhaul of the nation’s health insurance industry, predicting Americans would see “competition in ways we haven’t seen before.” Companies were even started as a way to encourage innovation and competition, namely 23 consumer-run, co-op insurers created with the help of $2 billion in federal loans. But rather than promote competition, the co-ops and smaller nonprofits in some states have languished behind major insurers, attracting in some cases minuscule shares of the market. While Obama celebrated an early projection this week of 7.1 million enrollees under the Affordable Care Act, it’s too early to say whether the law ultimately will foster sufficient competition to keep premiums and deductibles affordable for consumers. Many of the nonprofit insurers are startups and have faced challenges as they tried to attract customers, including: the computer problems that plagued many of the signup websites; plans that weren’t priced to compete; and a failure to develop brand recognition, due in part to restrictions on advertising and lobbying that were a condition of the co-ops accepting the federal funding. “Between no lobbying and no direct marketing, that’s what you get,” said Ken Lalime, CEO of HealthyCT, a co-op in Connecticut. “It’s kind of tough to get your name out there and get exposure.” Like nonprofits in other states, HealthyCT watched in recent months as customers chose big-name insurers on the marketplaces created under the federal health care law. Before Monday’s enrollment deadline, HealthyCT had 3 percent of signups in the state. Just 5 percent of enrollees in Washington state’s marketplace had chosen community nonprofit insurers by the end of February. In California, more than 95 percent of people signing up for coverage went with four major insurance companies rather than seven regional or community nonprofits. About 97 percent of Oregon’s enrollees have selected plans offered by the larger insurers in the state while 3.3 percent chose the two co-ops. In New Mexico, an estimated twothirds of those signing up selected one of three major insurers. And through February in North Dakota, where Blue Cross Blue Shield had 80 percent of the market before the law went into effect, just 516 people chose coverage offered by the nonprofit Medica. “When you had the lion’s share before, you’re going to have the lion’s share again,” said Neil Scharpe, a service contract specialist with North Dakota Center for Persons with Disabilities, who coordinates enrollment outreach workers. The federal government, which operates the insurance marketplaces, or exchanges, for 36 states, is not keeping track of how many people enroll in plans offered by nonprofits compared with for-profit plans, said Courtney Porter Jenkins, a spokeswoman for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. In the absence of

In New Mexico, an estimated two-thirds of those signing up selected one of three major insurers. federal data, The Associated Press surveyed the status of nonprofit insurers in numerous states, primarily those running their own exchanges. In some states, some of the larger insurers are also not-for-profit. And while the federal government has loaned $2 billion to the 23 co-ops, officials are not expressing concern with their enrollment figures or their ability to repay the loans. Porter Jenkins said her agency is encouraged so far but will be monitoring the co-ops’ progress. The struggles have been pronounced for the newly created co-ops, and some congressional Republicans have voiced concern about their long-term financial viability. HealthyCT, for example, only ran TV ads after it began bringing in money from premiums. Near the end of March, it had signed up about a quarter of its original, modest goal of 10,000 customers. The two major insurers on the state’s exchange, including Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, had 97 percent of the market. For Maryland’s Evergreen Health Co-op, lackluster enrollment numbers — about 650 people had signed up for coverage through early March — were blamed on technical issues with the exchange’s website. Until recently, the exchange failed to even give shoppers the actual costs of Evergreen’s policies that included out-of-pocket expenses. The slow starts prompted some smaller nonprofits to adjust their enrollment goals and change their business plans. HealthyCT is now selling insurance outside the state’s marketplace to larger employers and hopes to educate the public about its patient-centric model of care in time for the next open enrollment in November. Evergreen changed gears to focus more on offering small group insurance plans rather than individual ones and enrollment picked up, said Dr. Peter Beilenson, its CEO and president. Beilenson said he’s confident the added business will enable his co-op to enroll greater numbers of people with less effort, and he hopes Evergreen will be able to return to its priority of offering high-quality care to working and middleclass families, once Maryland’s enrollment system is improved. “I would hope that it works vastly better next year than this year,” he said. But if enrollments do remain low, there are some protections over the next several years. The law included temporary programs that basically provide money to participating insurers to help them financially balance the risk and offset rising insurance premiums, said Dylan H. Roby, director of the Health Economics and Evaluation Research Program at the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research.

Chrysler recalls more than 850,000 SUVs for brake issue Potential problem affects Durango and Grand Cherokee By Christopher Jensen The New York Times

Chrysler is recalling more than 850,000 sport utility vehicles because of a possible braking problem. The recall covers the 2011 to 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango models, including about 644,000 in the

United States. The automaker informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the recall in a report, which was posted Wednesday on the agency’s website. In a news release, the automaker said that it was aware of one accident related to the problem but that there were no injuries. When Chrysler first became aware of a problem last spring, it concluded vehicles would still meet federal standards and began adding a coating to

new parts. But cold weather set in, and owners contacted the safety agency after water that had entered the brake booster froze, affecting braking performance. In the report, Chrysler said there was a corrosion problem with the brake booster caused by “a small amount of exposed, uncoated surface at the crimp joints.” That could allow water to enter the booster and freeze. If water does not enter the booster, there could still be a loss of vacuum that could

require the driver to push harder than normal to slow the vehicle, according to the report, although there is “no loss of braking” and vehicle would still meet federal safety standards. Chrysler told the safety agency that it had noted more warranty claims than expected in May, and by July, it had figured out the corrosion problem. At the time, it concluded a recall was not necessary because while drivers would need to push the pedal harder, there was no loss of braking.

The automaker said it was justified in handling the matter as a “quality initiative,” and in September it began using an anti-corrosion coating on new parts. However, the report said, the safety agency contacted Chrysler in February about complaints from owners that water was entering the booster and freezing, affecting braking performance. Chrysler said it conducted tests, confirmed that could happen and concluded a recall was necessary.

The fix uses a shield to keep water from getting into the unit. The booster will be replaced only if a mechanic determines it does not have an “acceptable vacuum.” With the shield in place, the booster will have normal life expectancy, a Chrysler spokesman, Eric Mayne, wrote in an email. The recall also includes 42,000 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango models in Canada, 21,000 in Mexico and almost 160,000 outside North America.

LOCAL NEWS State to pay $3.75M in college savings case Settlement allows account holders to recover additional losses from investment firm By Steve Terrell The New Mexican

A judge gave final approval Wednesday to a settlement in which the state agreed to pay $3.75 million to families who alleged mismanagement of college savings plans that led to steep investment losses in 2008, just as their children were about to enter college. State District Judge Glenn Ellington approved the settlement between the six plaintiffs in the class-action lawsuit, including one Santa Fe woman, the state of New Mexico and the New Mexico Education Trust

Board. The settlement allows the account holders to pursue additional recovery of losses directly from Oppenheimer Funds. Oppenheimer previously paid $67.3 million to the state to partially reimburse account holders for the losses they suffered. The suit, filed in 2009, arose out of losses in New Mexico’s 529 college savings plans suffered by account holders due to investments in the Oppenheimer Core Bond Fund and two other Oppenheimer fixed-income funds. The suit alleged parents were encouraged to invest in the plans to save for their children’s college education and were required to choose investment portfolios based on the age of their children or the amount of risk they wished to assume. Parents investing in the “conservative” and “ultraconservative” portfolios were led to

believe that their funds were invested in safe mutual funds that would protect their savings to pay college expenses. However, lawyers for the plaintiffs argued, Oppenheimer and the New Mexico Education Trust Board invested their college savings in the Oppenheimer Core Bond Fund and two other Oppenheimer bond funds that followed what the plaintiffs argued was an “ultra-risky” strategy of investing in “mortgage-backed securities and other toxic derivatives.” Those bond funds suffered catastrophic losses in 2008. The plaintiffs’ lawyers argued that comparable bond funds actually increased in value during that year. As a result of those losses, parents who invested in those Oppenheimer funds lost nearly half of their

Labor board helps 4 fired hotel workers win back jobs Housekeepers also will receive a total of $11,345 in back pay under settlement for federal complaint By Milan Simonich The New Mexican

Four housekeepers fired by a hotel in Los Alamos after they formed a committee and complained about working conditions have won back their jobs by taking their case to the National Labor Relations Board. It marked the 10th time in recent years that lowwage workers in New Mexico have organized and won a workplace dispute through the National Labor Relations Board, even without having the clout of a labor union behind them. In addition to being reinstated by the Holiday Inn Express in Los Alamos, the housekeepers will receive a total of $11,375 in back pay, according to the settlement agreement signed by each side and the labor board’s regional director. None of the women had returned to work as of Wednesday, said Marcela Diaz, whose Santa Fe-based organization for immigrants helped them file their complaint. Agatha Marquez, general manager of the hotel, said the case was resolved through the labor board, but she could not comment on any personnel matters. Housekeepers Rosa Sanchez, Malena Sanchez, Ramona Salaiz and Yolanda Salaiz last September formed a workplace committee, alleging Holiday Inn Express treated employees unevenly and, in some cases, unfairly. The woman called their group Comité Holiday Inn and made three complaints. They said the hotel had a hostile work environment, that supervisors showed favoritism to certain employees and that discipline of workers was arbitrary. Soon after, the housekeepers said, hotel manage-

LBUQUERQUE — On the cactus-covered hillside where James Boyd was gunned down by police March 16, more than 100 people gathered to remember him during a somber vigil Wednesday evening. Most of the faces in the crowd were strangers to the mentally ill homeless man. But his death, under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice, has generated national attention and calls for reform, galvanizing a community to question the Albuquerque Police Department’s use of force. “Right here someplace, James cried out for mercy,” said the Rev. Ralph Di Palma, lead minister for Albuquerque Street Outreach, a Christian ministry for homeless

overreacted. Officials have said Boyd appeared to be surrendering before officers opened fire, and the FBI said last week that it would open an investigation into the shooting. A protest Sunday drew hundreds of demonstrators, including people from Santa Fe, who clogged city streets and brought Interstate 25 to a halt. The outrage has spurred Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry to consider several reforms to the police department, as well as a proposal to add $1 million to the department’s budget to boost officer training and monitoring. Berry said Wednesday he has asked the Justice Department to step in and help overhaul the city’s troubled police force. Berry called the shooting of Boyd, 38, a “game changer.” “People are fed up,” said Jo

TAOS — A New Mexico State Police officer who was disciplined for his actions during a high-profile traffic stop, high-speed pursuit and officer-involved shooting near Taos in October was named in a lawsuit alleging abuse of a jail inmate. Officer Anthony Luna was among five state police officers named in the civil rights suit filed Friday, which claims the inmate was beaten and shot with a stun gun. Luna drew his weapon on a van full of children during the October traffic stop that gained national attention when video of the incident was released, but he did not fire. Another officer, Elias Montoya, did open fire on the van and has been terminated from his position. Officer Tony DeTavis, who also was involved in the traffic stop and could be seen in video whaling on the passenger-side windows of the van, also was named in the recent lawsuit. The suit claims the state police officers beat a suspect, shot him with a stun gun and dragged him while booking him into the Taos County jail March 7. The man, John Moya, claims he suffered a concussion and other injuries and was treated at Holy Cross Hospital. Moya was apprehended in the attic of a Ranchos de Taos home on charges of violating his probation and other offenses and reportedly struggled with the offi-

Closure of media hub raises questions about future of 7 N.M. papers By Milan Simonich The New Mexican

Digital First Media, which operates seven newspapers in New Mexico and about 70 other dailies around the country, is shuttering its national news hub as a cost-cutting measure, fueling speculation that it will sell off its papers. Called Project Thunderdome, the national hub was in New York City and supplied content to newspapers and websites throughout the chain. Project Thunderdome employed about 45 people. “While our company will continue to invest heavily in digital development, increasingly our focus will be in local where we are the news and infor-

mation leader in our markets,” Digital First’s chief executive officer, John Paton, wrote in his blog Wednesday. Paton made no mention of selling newspapers when discussing Project Thunderdome’s demise, but analysts and bloggers immediately predicted at least parts of the chain would go on the market. The publishers of three Digital First Media newspapers in New Mexico declined to discuss the cutback or did not respond to messages seeking comment. The editor of the El Paso Times, the largest newspaper in Digital First’s regional chain, said requests for comment should be made to a corporate spokesman in Pennsylvania. The spokesman did not respond to questions about whether any papers would

be closed or put up for sale. The seven newspapers that Digital First operates in New Mexico are the Las Cruces Sun-News, Farmington Daily Times, Carlsbad Current-Argus, Alamogordo Daily News, Ruidoso News, Deming Headlight and Silver City Sun-News. The flagship of Digital First’s Texas-New Mexico operation is the El Paso Times. At least two rounds of layoffs occurred last year at these newspapers. Phil Lucey, executive director of the New Mexico Press Association, said he knew of no plans for downsizing newspapers in the state. “We have 48 daily and weekly newspapers in the association. With print, digital and mobile products the

newspapers are better positioned and reaching more readers and servicing more advertisers than ever before,” he said in an email. In the last year, the Raton Range closed and was replaced by the Raton Comet. “The Ruidoso Free Press ceased printing but the area is still serviced by the Ruidoso News,” one of the Digital First Media papers, Lucey said. He said the net number of newspapers and circulation “has remained unchanged for the most part in recent years.” Digital First’s majority owner is Alden Global Capital, and at least one analyst said it was a restless proprietor. Ken Doctor, writing Wednesday on

the Nieman Journalism Lab website, said the closure of Project Thunderdome was a sign that Digital First newspapers would be offered for sale. “They’re not yet on the market, but expect regional auctions of DFM properties (with clusters around the Los Angeles area, the Bay Area, New England, Philadelphia and Texas) — unless Alden can find a single buyer, which is unlikely,” Doctor stated.

Savings: SEC settled claims against firm Continued from Page A-6 investments, just when their children were entering or about to enter college. The original complaint said, “The reason for this shocking performance was not bad luck or the overall performance of the market. … Instead the state’s fixed income holdings imploded because the state, presumably upon the advice of its program manager, placed and retained trust assets in ‘fixed income’ holdings that were the very opposite of traditional, conservative investments.” John Bienvenu, one of lawyers for

the account holders, said, “Now … we can take action directly against Oppenheimer for its mismanagement in recommending and implementing these inappropriate investments in Oppenheimer’s own toxic bond funds.” Bienvenu said the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission already settled claims for securities violations against Oppenheimer that arose out of its “material misstatements.” Kevin Deiters, executive director of the Education Trust Board — one of the defendants in the case — said in a statement Tuesday, “The case was settled in

July of 2013 and was approved by former district court judge Stephen Pfeffer in October of 2013. The final action was ratification of the shareholders’ approval. The court found no liability on the part of the Education Trust Board.” The plaintiffs in the case were Ping Lu of Albuquerque, Jill and Richard McKeon of Los Angeles, Stephen Spencer of Sandoval County, Spencer Stopa of Otero County and Judy Winnegar of Santa Fe.

Workers: Threatened with lawsuits by hotel Continued from Page A-6 ment retaliated by threatening them with lawsuits and told them they could be terminated. Moreover, the women said, the hotel installed surveillance cameras aimed at housekeepers. Holiday Inn Express fired Rosa and Malena Sanchez in October. Then in February, it also fired Yolanda and Ramona Salaiz. This led to the formal complaint, in which the housekeepers claimed the hotel had violated the National Labor Relations Act by retaliating against them for mobilizing to improve their workplace. “All we tried to do was organize for better working conditions. We didn’t deserve to be mistreated or fired,” Ramona Salaiz said in a statement. “We look forward to returning to our jobs soon and to a more respectful work environment.” Rosa Sanchez, a single parent of daughters ages 14 and 17, said she was out of work for five months. Under the terms of

the settlement, she will receive $4,630 in back pay and interest, the second-highest total of the workers. Malena Sanchez is to be paid $5,216. “Standing up for my rights was the right thing to do and an important lesson for my girls,” Rosa Sanchez said. “If we hadn’t organized, the supervisors at the hotel would have kept treating workers badly.” The housekeepers’ committee learned to organize through the United Worker Center of New Mexico. It is a project of Somos Un Pueblo Unido, of which Diaz is executive director. Diaz said the United Worker Center brought similar complaints to the National Labor Relations Board when Santa Fe Tortilla Co. fired two employees after they formed a workplace committee. A federal judge last year ordered the company to reinstate the employees. Those two and a third worker are asking for back pay as part of labor board’s administrative process.

On arriving in the jail’s vestibule, Moya was handed off to a detention center officer, who removed a covering that the officers had placed over his head, according to surveillance camera footage of the incident obtained by The Taos News. Detention officers pinned Moya to the wall as they removed his handcuffs, and he appeared to grow combative. Moments later, three state police officers forced him to the ground and pushed him out of view of the camera. One officer drew his stun gun. Moya was then led down a hallway by two detention center officers, followed by five state police officers, the surveillance video shows. As they proceeded down a corridor lined with cells, the state police officers appeared to take hold of Moya. The lawsuit claims Moya was “flung into a cell” by the police officers out of the view of cameras and hit his head on a concrete cot in the cell. About 17 minutes later, a nurse is seen on camera walking toward Moya’s cell. Moya was transported to the local hospital, where he was “diagnosed as having suffered

a concussion from either, or both, of the head-injuries, leading to unconsciousness, which he sustained at the hands of New Mexico State Police,” the lawsuit states. It says bruising on his face, neck, arms, back, legs and ankles was visible days after the incident. Some of his injuries also were consistent with stun gun shots, his attorneys alleged. Moya told his attorney Alan Maestas that a molar had been loosened in the fray and that he was on a soft-food diet. Maestas also is representing Oriana Farrell, the driver of the van in the October chase. A spokesperson for the New Mexico State Police declined to comment on the allegations Monday, citing department policy to refrain from discussing matters under litigation. An attorney representing Taos County, which operates the detention center but was not named in the lawsuit, declined to comment Wednesday.

Boyd: ALCU welcomes calls for reform Continued from Page A-6 Roark, 59, before the start of Wednesday’s vigil, held not far from the site where Boyd was camping illegally in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains when he was confronted by police. “It’s really sad because he wasn’t doing anything but sleeping and camping.” Danny Hernandez, who organized the vigil, reported having indirect contact with Boyd’s family members, who he said arrived in Albuquerque two days earlier and are facing financial hardships associated with the trip. He said they were invited to attend the vigil but have been careful to keep a low profile. “They could be here for all I know,” Hernandez told the crowd on the windy hillside. Personal connections to mental illness and homelessness brought many to the vigil. Dorothy Pallares said her son is a diagnosed schizophrenic who lives on the

streets of Albuquerque. He is currently in jail at the Metropolitan Detention Center, so Pallares wore a backpack with all his possessions during the vigil. “This could’ve been my son,” she said, standing at the head of a trail she frequently walks but which now has taken on an ominous air. “I’m afraid to come out here. I’m afraid to carry anything in my hands.” Pallares said she had crossed paths with Boyd on the trail just days before he died. They exchanged short, pleasant greetings and went about their lives, she said. Someone who had spent more time with Boyd, social worker David Sisneros, said Boyd had likely retreated to the foothills so he wouldn’t be a burden on society. “He was just trying to survive,” Sisneros said. “He was a good man. He was struggling with issues, yes. But he had a good heart and a good soul.” Berry said Wednesday that he and

Police Chief Gordon Eden would like to see more training for all officers in dealing with suspects with mental health issues, and they would like to create an evaluation system to monitor officers with a history of deadly encounters. In addition, Berry said he was asking state lawmakers to consider various reforms aimed at helping state residents battling mental illness. In a statement, the American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico, which has been critical of Albuquerque police, welcomed Berry’s call for reform and called it a “good step forward.” “It is a shame that the city’s leadership took so long to respond with aggressive action,” said ACLU of New Mexico Executive Director Peter Simonson. A sign at Boyd’s vigil reflected on recent efforts to the reform the police department: “Your death is changing our system,” it read. “RIP James Boyd.” The Associated Press contributed to this story.

In brief Chimayó woman gets 3 years for trafficking A 50-year-old Chimayó woman was sentenced Wednesday afternoon to three years in federal prison in connection with a federal drug trafficking case in which she pleaded guilty to carrying about 134 grams of heroin. According to a news release, Dora Martinez was arrested after New Mexico State Police officers stopped her near Española on April 22, 2013, after they say they saw her “complete a drug transaction.” Martinez admitted that she had 134.2 grams of heroin that she intended to sell, the release states. She eventually pleaded guilty to one count of possession of heroin with intent to distribute in late November 2013.

State reports minimal issues with tax e-file New Mexico’s Taxation and Revenue Department reports that as of Tuesday, about 537,000 residents had filed their state income tax returns via email, totaling about $190 million in refunds to date. According to department spokesman S.U. Mahesh, many people have called the state’s help line with questions about the new e-filing system and the use of passwords, but the department has only received a handful of complaints regarding problems with the system. “We do get calls all the time, but not complaints,” Mahesh said Wednesday. “People forget their password or their old password doesn’t work, or they want to know how to use the system. But in terms of the system itself not working, we haven’t had many of those.” The New Mexican received a couple of emails from readers who encountered problems with the e-filing system this week.

Ski Santa Fe slated to close Sunday Sunday is the last day for skiers, snowboarders and other winter-sport enthusiasts to enjoy Ski Santa Fe this season. According to the Ski Santa Fe website, the resort is 98 percent open, and it has a base depth of 44 inches. That may change, however, as the National Weather Service had forecast a 10 percent chance of snow for Wednesday night in the Santa Fe area and a 20 percent chance of snow Thursday. The agency forecast more precipitation on Saturday. Regardless of more snow, said spokeswoman Debbie Owen, the resort will close Sunday. In honor of its closing weekend, the resort will offer discounted lift tickets on Saturday and Sunday. Rates vary based on the skier’s age, but a normal all-day lift ticket for an adult will cost $55, down from the normal $69. More information is available at Chair lifts open at 9:30 a.m., and will close between 4:15 and 4:30 p.m. The New Mexican

Daily work pics are unreasonable Dear Annie: I’m 18 years old. I work two jobs to save money for college next year, one during the week and the other at a coffee shop on the weekends. Last week, my boss from the coffee shop sent an email to all employees saying that we are now required to take a daily picture of ourselves on a work camera. At the end of the month, the owners (a husband and wife) will judge who is the best dressed and give the winner a $100 gift certificate. Annie, all of the workers at this shop are high school and college-age females. This makes us uncomfortable, but we are afraid of losing our jobs. There already are video cameras that send blackand-white images directly to the boss’s office. My parents said that they’d be supportive of whatever I decide. I really like and need this job. Yesterday, I dressed very well, but didn’t take a picture. Five minutes ago, I received an email reminding me that the pictures are mandatory. What do I do? — Confused Employee Dear Confused: We suspect your employers think this is an incentive for you and your coworkers to dress better. While the photographs don’t seem discriminatory, they do appear to be an unreasonable requirement for employment. Your best bet is to get together with the other employees and talk to your bosses. Let them know that you are uncomfortable with this new demand and ask whether they can find another way of getting the preferred results (like an enforced dress code). Dear Annie: I am a 51-year-old married man living in New Jersey. My retired parents live in Pennsylvania, and my older sister lives not far from them. Last November, my wife and I bought a new house 10 minutes from our old one. My parents wanted to see our new home. They rely on my sister to drive them long distances, so she sent an email with the details about when and how long. She also

asked, “Is there anything we can bring?” I responded that she could bring four of our family’s favorite sandwiches for lunch. The next night, she sent me a nasty email asking how I could expect them to bring lunch. She said it is the host’s job to provide something to eat. Annie, I’ve gone to their houses many times and have always brought these sandwiches because I know everybody likes them. (I’ve never accepted payment.) After receiving that nasty email from my sister, I told her she is no longer welcome here. Now my parents say I am the bad guy and should have bit the bullet and provided lunch on my own. Was I wrong? — Offended Brother Dear Brother: While the host should provide refreshments, this is family, and such things can be treated informally. The fact that you’ve brought sandwiches is generous, but that was your choice, not theirs. And your sister should not have asked about bringing something if she was not willing to comply. Her email was rude and incendiary, and your response shoved the argument into the stratosphere. You should each apologize. We suggest you swallow your pride and take the first step before this estrangement becomes permanent and all of you lose out. Dear Annie: I wholeheartedly agree with “Mom” about the PG-13 movies for children. How sad that we, the American public, allow this to continue and even make it profitable. Television is even worse. We all allow the lowest common denominator to set our values and standards. I realize that someday my grandchildren will be dealing with their children being exposed to much more filth. I grew up in the ’50s and wish I could bottle the innocence my friends and I enjoyed and give it to my grandchildren. Instead, parents today seem to be rushing their children toward adulthood. — Baton Rouge, La.

New homes for old dogs Senior pooch adoptions gaining popularity with help from shelters, Web users By Sue Manning

The Associated Press


OS ANGELES — Erin O’Sullivan wants to change lives by finding new homes for old dogs. Visitors to her popular Facebook page say she has done just that by helping them discover the pets they didn’t know they were missing. O’Sullivan’s page tells stories about pooches past their prime that need loving homes and taps into the wellspring of animal lovers seeking calmer, well-trained dogs or those wanting to care for pets in their twilight years. Shelters will ask her to help place older dogs that aren’t as sought-after as puppies, many of which have extensive health problems that can stall adoptions. “I think more than food or water, companionship is lifeblood to a dog,” O’Sullivan said. She is convinced that when an older dog is adopted, they will live longer because of an owner’s love. Many shelters and rescues online and off focus on senior dog adoptions that are growing in popularity. But O’Sullivan’s page, Susie’s Senior Dogs, has gotten more attention than most thanks to a big boost from her boyfriend, an Internet star who knows how to build buzz online — and owns a dog named Susie. Brandon Stanton of Brooklyn is the author of the book Humans of New York and blog of the same name, which claims more than 4 million followers on social media, and chronicles the lives of New Yorkers, enrapturing overtaxed Web surfers with heartfelt photos and snippets of text. Three years ago, Stanton adopted an sa11year-old Chihuahua named Susie. “She is the greatest dog in New York … I

In brief Spaying/neutering for Chihuahuas Add Chihuahuas to the list of breeds that get special treatment at the Santa Fe animal shelter’s Spay/Neuter Clinic. The little dogs with big personalities are being singled out for free spaying/neutering on Tuesdays at the clinic, 2570 Camino Entrada, thanks to an anonymous supporter who also finances a free canine spaying/neutering for all breeds on Thursdays. The appointment-only surgeries for Chihuahuas are available by calling the clinic at 467-6742. In addition to Chihuahua on Tuesdays, the clinic also offers $10 surgeries for pit bulls and pit-bull mixes on any day of the week by appointment only. There also are several freeor reduced-price surgeries for cats. Call the clinic for more information. The clinic also offers low-cost vaccinations for companion animals from 1 to 4 p.m. Tuesday and from 8 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 4 p.m. Fridays. The walk-in clinics require no appointment and are first come, first served.

didn’t realize what it meant to have an animal attach itself to you so her only concern in life is being close to you,” he said. O’Sullivan had set up a Facebook page for Susie, which had about 10,000 “likes” the morning she changed its purpose to finding other old dogs new homes. Stanton pitched the page on his blog, and by nightfall the page had 10 times as many followers. That number has since grown to more than 150,000, and she has helped nearly 200 dogs since January. That includes a 12-year-old pooch that Britany Spangler of Grand Rapids, Mich., found on the page. “I never intended on getting a dog until I saw our Molly, and I knew we had to have her,” she said. The Lhasa apso was missing a whole side of teeth, was infested with worms and fleas, had an allergy that made her hair fall out and suffered kidney problems. Despite the health issues, the dog gets along beautifully with her three children, who are all under 3 years old, Spangler said.

Auction benefits animal coalition ArtBark!, a silent auction and fundraiser that supports the Las Vegas, N.M., animal shelter, is set for April 19. The annual event is the major fundraiser for the Animal Welfare Coalition of Northeastern New Mexico, which operates the San Miguel County animal shelter in Las Vegas. The festive event will held from 4 to 7 p.m. April 19 at the historic United World College-USA campus in the atrium gallery of the Kluge Arts Center. The silent auction, which raises funds and awareness for the nonprofit, will be curated Jennifer Rowland, the former owner of Gallery Figueroa in Los Angeles. The Animal Welfare Coalition of Northeastern New Mexico took over the county’s animal shelter in September. In the past, the group provided pet food, low-cost spay/neuter services, along with services to sick, injured and forgotten animals.

“It was like they had been together forever,” she said. “She came potty-trained and full of love. If she is with us for six months, she blesses us for six months. If she is with us for five years, she enriches our lives for five years. She’s the dog I never knew I needed.” Steve Greig, who owns a menagerie of animals, found a 10-year-old dog to love on O’Sullivan’s page, but the nearly hairless Chihuahua-poodle mix named Phyllis also came with problems. The dog is blind, weak, had sores on her face from trying to escape her cage, and lost all her hair to an infection, Greig said. In February, he took in Phyllis because he didn’t have hope she would be adopted from a shelter otherwise. “She looks like a fox with a bad perm,” he said, but that hasn’t bothered his dogs, cats, chickens, ducks or pot-bellied pig. “The other dogs must realize the 10-year-old Chihuahua-poodle is blind and feeble. They are so gentle with her. She’s fitting in fine.” Greig is looking into getting Phyllis surgery to possibly restore her eyesight. Meanwhile, O’Sullivan and animal rescue owner Elli Frank are trying to help Tanya, an 8-year-old pit bull mix that was all but forgotten after being dumped at a shelter as a puppy. Frank, founder of Mr. Bones and Co. in New York City that takes in a few animals at a time, won’t acquire other dogs until Tanya has a home. The dog has been adopted twice, but little things went wrong and she was returned. Frank has since sent her to an obedience school in Connecticut. “I want her to be the most adoptable dog she can be,” Frank said. “It’s so wrong that she doesn’t have a home … But who is going to gamble on a dog that’s never had a home?” O’Sullivan would call her an underdog — her favorite kind.

raffle will benefit the New Mexico House Rabbit Society, which provides rescue, education and adoption of companion bunnies. The estate stale will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 19 at 702 Canyon Road, in the backyard of Giacobbe Fritz Fine Art off Gormley Lane. It features treasures, jewelry, vintage clothes, cowboy boots and art. Visitors also may purchase cookies and cupcakes at a bake

sale, which supports the nonprofit. A deluxe spring gift basket filled with treasures will be on display from April 12-19 at the gallery. Tickets are $2; the drawing will take place at 1 p.m. April 19. All the profits from the events will benefit the House Rabbit Society.

Deputies: Drunken driver rams minivan into patrol car By Chris Quintana The New Mexican

A Santa Fe County sheriff’s cruiser is temporarily out of service after it was hit late Tuesday on Old Las Vegas Highway by a minivan driven by a 55-year-old woman charged with drunken driving. Deputies reported that Annette Herrington of Santa Fe caused moderate damage to the cruiser after she was

stopped in connection with a possible domestic disturbance as she was driving away from a home on Gurule Lane, southeast of Santa Fe. “For reasons Annette unknown to the depuHerrington ties the vehicle lunged forward” and struck a rear panel on the cruiser, the report

states, adding that both the deputy’s vehicle and the front end of Herrington’s minivan were damaged. Capt. Adan Mendoza said the deputy believed the woman may have confused the gas and break pedals. He said it was Herrington’s second drunken-driving charge, and her vehicle was seized. Mendoza said the deputy wasn’t injured during the incident, but Herrington complained of minor injuries when she was taken to Christus

St. Vincent Regional Medical Center. Harrington failed field sobriety tests, Mendoza said, but deputies didn’t administer a breath alcohol test. Instead, he said, medical staff drew a blood sample. The deputies also discovered that Herrington’s license was suspended and that she lacked proof of insurance. Herrington is charged with aggravated drunken driving, careless driving and driving with a suspended license

and without insurance. As of Wednesday morning, she was being held at the Santa Fe County jail without bond. The New Mexico Courts online records show that Herrington earlier had been charged with several moving violations that were dismissed. Santa Fe County jail online records indicate she also has been arrested on shoplifting charges. Mendoza said the cruiser will be out of service until repairs are complete.

Poll: Three-fourths in U.S. believe marijuana will be legal By Kristen Wyatt

The Associated Press

DENVER — Three-fourths of Americans say it’s inevitable that marijuana will be legal for recreational use across the nation, whether they support such policies or not, according to a public opinion poll released Wednesday that highlights shifting attitudes following the drug war era and tough-on-crime legislation. The Pew Research Center survey also shows increased support for ending mandatory minimum prison sentences for nonviolent drug offenders and doing away altogether with jail time for small amounts of marijuana. The opinions come as public debate on these topics has led lawmakers around the nation to consider policy changes. Since California became the first state to legalize medical marijuana in 1996, at least 19 others and the District of Columbia have followed suit, including two that have approved recreational use. More than a dozen state legislatures considered legalization measures this year. Meanwhile, critics and political leaders, both liberal and conservative, have clamored for an end to harsh drug sentences, saying mandatory minimums have contributed to prison overcrowding, civil rights violations and strained budgets. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has been pushing Congress to overhaul drug sentencing policies. The telephone survey found that 75 percent of respondents — including majorities of both supporters and opponents of legal marijuana — think the sale and use of pot eventually will be legal nationwide. It was the first time that question had been asked, but it reflects a gradual trend of acceptance. The survey indicates that four years ago, 52 percent of respondents said they thought the use of marijuana should not be legal, while 41 percent said it should. The new poll shows a reversal, with 54 percent in favor of legalization and 42 percent opposed. It marked a turning

Student fell to death after eating pot cookie DENVER — A Wyoming college student visiting Denver on spring break jumped to his death after eating a marijuana cookie that his friend legally purchased in one of Colorado’s recreational pot shops, authorities said Wednesday. An autopsy report lists marijuana intoxication as a “significant contributing factor” in the death of 19-year-old Levi Thamba Pongi, a native of the Republic of Congo who fell from a motel balcony March 11. Pongi’s friends told investigators he ate the cookie and “exhibited hostile behavior” that included pulling things off walls and speaking erratically, the report said. Attempts by the three friends to calm Pongi seemed to work until he went outside and jumped over the balcony railing, according to the report.

Mary Elizabeth Lopez Pacheco, born on March 6, 1923 in Maxwell, NM, daughter of Ignacio and Margarita Lopez, passed on April 1, 2014 at the age of 91. Elizabeth, a resident of Santa Fe, NM, and former resident of Maxwell, Springer, and Raton, NM, was married to Manuel Jose Pacheco on July 8, 1940 until his death in July 1999-nearly 60 years. They lived most of their lives on a farm in Maxwell, and raised 12 children. All children eventually married and blessed Elizabeth and Manuel with 41 grandchildren and numerous great- and great-great-grandchildren. Children include Dr. Manuel Trinidad Pacheco (Karen) of Phoenix, AZ; Margaret Safallo (Al) of Prescott, AZ; Dr. John Maurice Pacheco (Bea) of Santa Fe, NM; Ignacio Robert Pacheco (Carol) of Denver, Colorado; Julia Rosita Chavez (Randy) of Albuquerque, NM; Olivia Elizabeth Ann Huggins (Ronnie) of Lawrenceville, GA; Theresa Marie Wittig (Evan) of San Antonio, TX; Bernadette Agnes Trujillo (John) of Baltimore, MD; Anna Marie Robinson (Richard) of Las Cruces, NM; Dr. Mario Francis James Pacheco (Diana) of Santa Fe, NM; Dr. Rita Magdalene Pacheco-Gonzales (Esteban) of Las Cruces, NM; and Christopher Mark Pacheco (Judy) of Elizabeth, CO. Elizabeth was preceded in death by sister, Julia Lopez, and brothers Louis Ignacio Lopez and Pablo Antonio Lopez. She is survived by numerous nieces and nephews and one sister-in-law. In her early married years Elizabeth first accompanied Manuel as a migrant farmworker in Colorado and before long settled in Maxwell, NM as their primary residence, eventually purchasing a farm and tractor. Elizabeth helped Manuel run a dairy farm by milking every morning at pre-dawn among other things, while Manuel tended cattle, and pursued various other small animal ventures, aside from his regular job at the NM State Highway Department in Springer, NM. Elizabeth and Manuel raised 12 children on the farm in Maxwell, NM. In addition, Elizabeth played the organ for mass at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Maxwell and St. Joseph Catholic Church in Springer, over the majority of her lifetime, a service she began at St. Patrick’s Academy in Raton, NM since the age of 12. She also taught religious education classes at St. Vincent De Paul Church in Maxwell. She served for over 25 years as Secretary for the Maxwell School Board, working diligently for decades to keep the school independent and successful, and also served as Secretary for the NM State Board of Education. After her youngest child was ready to leave for college, Elizabeth pursued a bachelors degree and graduated summa cum laude from Highlands University, and taught at the New Mexico Boys Correctional Facility in Springer, NM for almost 20 years. She was honored in 1983 as New Mexico’s Mother of the Year. Fittingly, she continued her motherly role, guiding boys at the correctional facility, teaching them to read, write, and develop a sense of self-worth. These troubled young men invigorated a fresh sense of purpose after her children were grown and left home. Elizabeth enjoyed traveling to Europe, South America, Israel, Mexico, and other places. Her love of music, traveling, and reading enveloped every element of her life and transferred to her children and grandchildren. Visitation will begin at 6:00 PM Thursday, April 3, 2014 at Santa Maria De La Paz Catholic Church, where a Rosary will be recited at 7:00 PM Thursday evening. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00 AM Friday, April 4, 2014 at Santa Maria De La Paz. A Memorial Service will be conducted at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Maxwell, NM at 11:00 AM Saturday, April 5, 2014, with interment to follow at the Maxwell Cemetery.

point in a gap that has been shrinking fairly steadily since 1969, the earliest data available, when 84 percent said pot should be illegal and only 12 percent thought otherwise. “Pot just doesn’t seem as bad,” said Gregory Carlson, a 52-year-old landscaper from Denver who did not participate in the Pew survey. “You don’t see anything about someone smoking a joint and then driving the wrong way into a school bus,” Carlson said. With a chuckle, he added Wednesday, “They just drive slower.” The survey also highlighted a dramatic shift in attitudes on drug conviction penalties. The survey was about evenly divided in 2001 on whether it was good or bad for states to move away from mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent drug offenders. Today, poll respondents favored moving away from such policies by a nearly 2-to-1 margin, or 63 percent to 32 percent.

LeRoy (Arnold) Varela, 54, a lifelong resident of Pecos, NM went to be with our Lord on March 29, 2014. He is preceded in death by his mother Esther Varela.

LeRoy loved the outdoors, spending time with his loved ones and friends. A Rosary and Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, April 5, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. at St. Anthony’s Parish in Pecos, NM.

Pay attention to annexing strategies


et’s suppose for a moment that Mexico decides to “annex” Texas. After all, Texas was once a part of Mexico. A large population of ethnic Mexicans would be delighted to actually live in Mexico, so long as they don’t have to relocate. Our president might “impose sanctions” against Mexico, or even freeze certain economic assets, except that so much money in Mexico is concentrated in the drug cartels, who, I understand, don’t necessarily use banks. Anyway, we mustn’t violate the terms of NAFTA. So maybe the rest of the United States will just sort of let things slide, and let it happen, since Mexico’s leaders have thus far shown little interest in areas other than Texas. This new, larger Mexico could be renamed Texico, which might prompt a certain oil company to change its name. Should New Mexico, or Arizona or California be worried? Barbara A. Smith

For female veterans, a hard homecoming



he injury wasn’t new, and neither was the insult. Rebecca, a combat veteran of two tours of duty, had been waiting at the VA hospital for close to an hour when the office manager asked if she was there to pick up her husband. No, she said, fighting back her exasperation. She was there because of a spinal injury she sustained while fighting in Afghanistan. Women have served in the American military in some capacity for 400 years. They’ve deployed alongside men as soldiers in three wars, and since the 1990s, a significant number of them are training, fighting and returning from combat. But stories about female veterans are nearly absent from our culture. It’s not that their stories are poorly told. It’s that their stories are simply not told in our literature, film and popular culture. Women have the same issues as men upon return, from traumatic physical injuries to post-traumatic stress disorder. One young combat veteran told me a harrowing story of crushing a little boy beneath the wheels of her speeding Humvee. I am sure she hears the sound of that vehicle hitting his small body every day of her life. In addition, as many as a third of all women serving in the military are raped by fellow soldiers during their tours of duty, compounding whatever traumas they may have experienced in combat. And yet Rebecca’s experience at the VA hospital is common. I’ve talked with many women veterans, and like all soldiers, they’ve recounted the firefights, moral confusion and compassion for those whose lives are torn apart by war. Each had a different experience, and each bore her pains differently. But there was this simple, common thread: Their stories of being unrecognized at home, which always carried with it a separate

kind of frustration and incredulity. Male soldiers’ experiences make up the foundation of art and literature: From The Odyssey to The Things They Carried, the heroic or tragic protagonist’s face is familiar, timeless and, without exception, male. The story of men in combat is taught globally, examined broadly, celebrated and vilified in fiction, exploited by either side of the aisle in politics. For women it’s a different story, one in which they are more often cast as victims, wives, nurses; anything but soldiers who see battle. In the rare war narratives where women do appear, the focus is generally on military sexual assault, a terrible epidemic of violence that needs to be revealed and ended, but not something that represents the full experience of women in the military. Homecoming isn’t easy for anyone, but traditional domestic expectations can make it particularly challenging for women. Feelings of wanting to be alone, of alienation, are more difficult, as women are expected to be patient nurturers who care for spouses and children. Parenting under the best circumstances can test a person’s patience, but parenting after life under fire is more than most of us could take. Studies show women experience elevated anxiety about caring for their families upon homecoming, including an increased fear that they may hurt their own children. Lack of recognition is also a problem. I’ve stood next to my uniform-wearing brother, a veteran of two tours in Afghanistan, in a grocery store while three separate strangers approached to thank him for his service. Women veterans are rarely stopped by people who want to shake their hands. Even wearing fatigues and boots and carrying duffel bags standing in a bus station or at the airport, somehow they go unrecognized

as returning warriors. The sense of emptiness that can follow unacknowledged accomplishments and unacknowledged trauma makes women soldiers feel invisible and adds yet one more insult to injury. Depression, drug and alcohol abuse, homelessness and suicide do not just affect male soldiers, though theirs are the stories we see. Women who have served in the military are three times more likely to commit suicide than their civilian counterparts. I can’t help but think women soldiers would be afforded the respect they deserve if their experiences were reflected in literature, film and art, if people could see their struggles, their resilience, their grief represented. They would be made visible if we could read stories that would allow us to understand that women kill in combat and lose friends and long to see their children and partners at home. They would be given appropriate human compassion if we could feel their experiences viscerally as we do when reading novels like All Quiet on the Western Front, or seeing films like The Hurt Locker. Society may come to understand war differently if people could see it through the eyes of women who’ve experienced both giving birth and taking life. People might learn something new about aggression and violence if we read not just about those fighting the enemy but about those who must also fight off assault from the soldiers they serve beside or report to. Female veterans’ stories clearly have the power to change and enrich our understanding of war. But their unsung epics might also have the power to change our culture, our art, our nation and our lives. Cara Hoffman is the author of the novel Be Safe I Love You, about a female veteran.

That’s hardly surprising, given that the market is on its 93rd incarnation this August. As with any long-lived organization, there are good and bad times. For much of the past decade, though, Indian Market has been on a roll. And John Torres Nez, who recently announced he is resigning as chief operating officer of the market, is a big factor in recent successes. His seemingly abrupt decision to leave the organization he loves is sending shockwaves through the family that is Indian Market — artists are demanding to know why he is leaving. In an open letter announcing his decision, Torres Nez was not specific, saying only that, “due to the position, despite my objections, in which this organization has been placed, it is my fiduciary duty to resign my position as Chief Operating Officer.” He is saying little else. The SWAIA board, which hires the top executive to run SWAIA, and thus Indian Market, issued a statement Wednesday saying Torres Nez will be “deeply missed.” As Indian Market outsiders, we can’t know the inner workings of the organization. It’s somewhat like a marriage in that only the people inside really know the story of what went wrong in the relationship, and even then, each side has a different point of view. However, what we do know is this. The appointment of Torres Nez to succeed Bruce Bernstein mattered — Torres Nez started as a volunteer for six years, then was on staff as deputy director before taking over. As a Native artist and scholar (he has a Ph.D.), Torres Nez brought a knowledge of the community and the art from an insider’s perspective. He was innovative, founding the Classification X Film Category, expanding the reach of Indian Market beyond the Southwest and always putting the artists and their needs first. Those artists, by the way, are in an uproar. Whatever the disagreement between board and operating officer, the artists trust Torres Nez. He made it a point for SWAIA to be there for artists yearround and especially emphasized youth programs to focus on the next generation of artists. His departure is a loss for Indian Market, and as a result, for Santa Fe. We all know that Indian Market is the economic engine of a Santa Fe summer. As it succeeds, so do the artists who live here and earn much of a year’s income at market, so do the galleries who cater to visitors and so do the many businesses where those visitors spend money. What’s more, even though Indian Market does not take place until August, the big decisions and plans to make the magic happen are occurring now. SWAIA needs a strong hand at the helm, someone who knows market, understands artists and can put all the complicated pieces together. Which, by the way, Torres Nez did, without ever raising his voice or being rude. Perhaps this disagreement — even though it is now public — is not so great that the board and Torres Nez can’t sit down and discuss a compromise that would keep him in place. Indian Market, through the Bernstein and Torres Nez years, had grown to a place of innovation, growth and excellence that has been truly inspiring. This summer’s event promised more of the same — and while every person can be replaced and without knowing more details of the breakup, it’s difficult to see a better leader for Indian Market than the one who just quit.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: April 3, 1914: Roswell, N.M. — The Roswell Exchange has given the contract for 40 cars of boxes to the Farmers’ Supply Co., as agents for the El Paso Milling Co. These knocked down boxes are for the big cantaloupe crop to be shipped through the Roswell Exchange from Roswell, Portales, Lakewood and Pecos. The Exchange expects to ship 400 cars to the markets besides supplying the local markets. April 3, 1964: Washington — American prelates of the Roman Catholic Church have drawn up detailed recommendations for greater use of English in Masses. Prompt approval from Rome is expected. About 200 archbishops and bishops and four of the five American cardinals met in a secret session at Catholic University to approve the texts and the extent of English in the Mass, sacraments and the breviary.

NEW YORK ike every Game of Thrones fan, Charles Dance was gobsmacked by last season’s next-to-last installment. That episode floored viewers with its ritualistic “red wedding,” a massacre staged by Lord Walder Frey, the bride’s father, who meant to settle a score with his hall of guests, and did. “I got quite a shock!” says Dance, speaking for everyone who saw it. “It was bloody in the extreme!” The fact that Dance was caught off-guard is notable, since he’s a star of the show. Indeed, the character he plays, Lord Tywin Lannister, had a hand in the bloodshed. But he didn’t actually appear in that episode, “and when I’m not in it, to be honest with you, I don’t read the script,” Dance says. “I catch up on what’s happening when the episode airs.” Game of Thrones, which returns at 7 p.m. Sunday on HBO, will pack its next punch soon enough in the new season. Such is the nature of this epic fantasy, set on a make-believe continent called Westeros, chock-full of warring kingdoms, rugged landscapes, lots of sex and swordplay, and, of course, firebreathing dragons. If the scale of the series is vast, the source material is no less sprawling: the five-andcounting novels by George R.R. Martin in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. “I still have not read the books,” says Dance. Dance’s despotic Lord Tywin is the grandfather of King Joffrey, an infantile tyrant whose betrothed is the granddaughter of Olenna Tyrell. Lady Olenna is played by Diana Rigg. On-screen soon-to-be inlaws, Rigg and Dance have known and worked together for decades, including a 1997 British TV adaptation of Rebecca. Little wonder they get on famously as they meet

with a reporter at a Manhattan hotel. Rigg says she hasn’t read the Game of Thrones books either. The show’s dozens of cast members include Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Jack Gleeson, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Emilia Clarke. Asked what drew him into this elite community, Dance smiles and answers, “The writing was good, the costumes are great and, eventually, the location catering was fantastic.” “I loved the idea of playing this naughty old bag,” Rigg says, offering her own explanation. “It’s my idea of heaven.” Now 75, Rigg has had a rich and varied career in theater, both in her native Britain and as a Tony Award winner on Broadway, as well as films including the James Bond caper On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and even an NBC sitcom. But her breakout role was in 1965 in the British TV thriller The Avengers, where she played the catsuit-clad karate queen Emma Peel. “It put me on the map,” she says, “which a lifetime of Shakespeare wouldn’t have done.” Tall and imperial, Dance, 67, grew up working-class in England and overcame a teenage stammer to devote himself to theater. His breakout project was the 1984 British TV hit The Jewel in the Crown, which he followed with such films as Michael Collins and Gosford Park and the British miniseries Bleak House, as well as lots of theater. Rigg and Dance are cracking up at their shared memories of starting out so long ago. But both are caught short by this inquiry: When did you know you had finally made it? “When I could book a holiday,” Dance replies after a bit of thought, “and know there was a job to come back to.” As for Rigg, “It was when I found money in a handbag I didn’t know I had: ‘How did that get in there and how did I not notice it? I must be on my way.’ ”

Jackson gets big deal from Washington

One-and-done works fine for Kentucky By Dave Skretta

The Associated Press

DALLAS — Everyone has an opinion of John Calipari. He’s a pariah to some, successful only because of his ability to attract one-anddone stars destined for the NBA. They point to him as a scourge of college basketball, arguing that he’s complicit — responsible, even — in stripping “student” from studentathletes. Then there are those who see him as an elite coach, the architect of successful programs at UMass, Memphis and now Kentucky. He’s churned out players who are making millions in the pros, and it is hard to argue that he’s let any of them down. “He does get the best guys, but he challenges them and pushes them to be who they are,” said New Orleans Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans, who played one season for

Calipari at Memphis. “That’s the thing about playing for him,” Evans said. “You’ve got to be willing to take on the challenge, and take on him getting on you every day in practice. Some guys can handle it, some guys can’t. Before you get there, he’ll tell you that.” Those who accept the challenge are usually rewarded. His group at Memphis headlined by Derrick Rose reached the national title game in 2008, though the trip was later vacated. Another troupe of young stars led by Anthony Davis beat Kansas to win Kentucky’s eighth national championship in 2012. And the latest group of fabulous freshmen has the Wildcats back in the Final Four, knocking off three of the top four seeds in the Midwest Region along the way. They’ll

WASHINGTON — The contrast couldn’t have been greater for DeSean Jackson. In a matter of days, he went from unwanted to wanted, from fired to hired, from discarded by the Philadelphia Eagles with reputation tarnished to rock star treatment and a new fat contract from the Washington Redskins. Concerns about work ethic, attitude and reports about gang activity seemed miles away when he was being wooed by Robert Griffin III or enjoying his recruiting-style evening out with cornerback DeAngelo Hall, receiver Pierre Garcon and rapper Wale. On Wednesday, Jackson closed the deal, signing a three-year, $24 million contract that includes $16 million guaranteed. The terms were disclosed by a person familiar with the negotiations who spoke on condition of anonymity because the Redskins did not announce the financial details. “I feel they embraced me,” Jackson said. “RG3, DeAngelo Hall reached out to me and made it feel like it was home. After everything that was going on the past couple of days, and the last week, that’s a big step. … I think the biggest thing about this move is finding a place where I can be happy and go out there and just be myself.” Adding Jackson to an offense that includes Griffin, Garcon, Andre Roberts, Jordan Reed and Alfred Morris should make the Redskins fun to watch again. Adding him to a locker room culture undergoing yet another overhaul might be the greater

Travel-friendly conference may help Isotopes’ performance By James Barron The New Mexican


he best thing about the 2014 season for Stephen Fife are the travel accommodations. If anything tells the tale of the Albuquerque Isotopes this season, it will be how they travel. Thanks to the move of one team from Tucson, Ariz., to El Paso, the ball club finds itself out of American Conference of the Triple-A Pacific Coast League — which encompasses teams from Colorado Springs, Colo., east to Memphis, Tenn. — to a much more travel- and weather-friendly Pacific conference. In the past, the Isotopes started their season in the near-wintry conditions of Omaha, Neb., or Des Moines, Iowa. Suddenly, the cold and rain of Tacoma, where Albuquerque starts its season on Thursday night, sound much more appealing. “In Iowa and Omaha last year, I was pitching in snow flurries,” said Fife, a returning starting pitcher for the Isotopes. “And they’re getting more snow right now. At least, you get a chance to play [in Tacoma] and know you’re not going to be below freezing.” But the weather is just one factor of the changing travel nature for the Isotopes. In the past, the team would rush out to the airport after a homestand, only to be greeted by layovers

Besides, with they way [the Dodgers] had that weird start to the season where they had two games in, like, nine days; there would have been a lot of sitting around. A lot of inactivity. They really didn’t need a second catcher during all of that.” The Dodgers are backing up Ellis with journeyman Drew Butera. If and when the big club needs relief, Fed is just a phone call away. Rather than pine for the big leagues, he is taking his role in Albuquerque as an opportunity to fine-tune his skills for his next shot. With catchers’ durability always an issue, chances are he will not be in Albuquerque long. “That’s honestly something I can’t really concern myself with,” Federowicz said.

NEW YORK — With two famous names on the sideline, the NIT championship has a New York feel. One coach is a rising young star, the other is in the twilight of his Hall of Fame career. Both with boyhood ties to the Big Apple. Richard Pitino leads Minnesota into the title game Thursday night against 73-year-old Larry Brown and SMU at Madison Square Garden, a building both basketball junkies revere. Born in Brooklyn and raised in nearby Long Beach, Brown grew up going to games at the Garden and coached the resident New York Knicks to a 23-59 record during the 2005-06 season. The 31-year-old Pitino, of course, is the son of Louisville coach Rick Pitino, a Hall of Famer himself who guided the Knicks to a division crown and two NBA playoff appearances from 1987-89. So it seems all too appropriate that Brown and the boy wonder will play for a postseason trophy on Seventh Avenue. “Well, I know they have the Knicks’ dressing room, so what does that tell you?” Brown said on a conference call Wednesday, drawing laughs. SMU (27-9) and Minnesota (24-13) were both disappointed to be left out of the NCAA Tournament on Selection Sunday. But each squad received a No. 1 seed in the NIT and made the most of it. “I think really the only tough game, honestly, was the first game. I think that was where everybody was kind of let down a little bit,” said Richard Pitino, in his first season at Minnesota. “We’ve got three seniors who don’t want their college career to be over, and then we have got some younger guys who have an opportunity to win a championship.” SMU is looking for its first NIT title. In fact, before Tuesday night, the only time the Mustangs had played at Madison Square Garden was a 76-72 loss to St. John’s in December 1950. Minnesota won the National Invitation Tournament in 1993 and ’98, but the second one was vacated because of an NCAA rules violation involving player eligibility. “I think the NIT is so much better than it was years ago,” Brown said. “And I try to reminisce about when I was a boy, when the NIT was the biggest tournament going.” A handful of key Gophers, including Austin Hollins and Andre Hollins, played in the championship game two years ago under coach Tubby Smith when Minnesota was routed 75-51 by Stanford.

Bernalillo beats Los Alamos in 1-run game The New Mexican

Roger Anaya knew before the softball season began what kind of games Los Alamos would have with Bernalillo. Anaya, the Lady HillBernalillo 1 toppers head coach, Los Alamos 0 was proven right Wednesday in the form of a 1-0 score in a District 2AAAA opener at Overlook Park. The only problem was that the Lady Spartans were the ones who scored. The Lady Hilltoppers (5-9 overall) had their chances, however. They collected just five hits against Bernalillo ace Demetria Magdalena, who registered 14 strikeouts in her complete-game performance, but had a runner at third base twice in the first three innings. Los Alamos second baseman Aletta Marciano had one-out base hits in the first and third innings, but was left stranded at third both times. In the fourth, Alyssa Mojica and Krysta Salazar opened with consecutive base hits, but Mojica was nailed at third to stymie the rally. Magdalena followed with two strikeouts to end

the inning. “We had the opportunities,” Anaya said. “The fourth was the best opportunity, but we needed to string together three hits together. Magdalena was throwing pretty well. her rises ball was working well.” Kianna Zerr went the distance in the pitching circle for the Lady Hilltoppers, allowing seven hits while striking out nine. She give up the winning run in the top of the fourth when Bernalillo (8-3) got a leadoff double, moved the runner over on a groundout and she scored on a short flyout to right field. SANTA FE HIGH 12, ESPAÑOLA VALLEY 1 (FIVE INNINGS) The Demonettes started the 2AAAA season with a good offensive outing and ended the game in the fifth inning at home with the 10-run mercy rule. Santa Fe High (6-3) sophomore first baseman Lena Romero hit a solo home run in the second inning, sophomore pitcher Alex Russell had a solo homer in the third inning and senior third baseman Xeala Porras hit a two-run home run later in the third. “Our athleticism took over and we got going offensively,” Santa Fe High head

coach Keith Richards said. Russell also pitched all five innings and struck out 11 batters. Española moves to 6-4, 0-1. ST. MICHAEL’S 24, CAPITAL 1 (THREE INNINGS) ST. MICHAEL’S 26, CAPITAL 0 (THREE INNINGS) The Lady Horsemen scored 50 runs in six innings in a nondistrict doubleheader at Capital. Both games were called in accordance with the 15-run mercy rule. In the first game, Allie Berhost went 4-for-4 at the plate with four runs scored, 4 RBIs and a three-run home run in the second inning while Cristiana Gabaldon went 4-5 with 6 RBIs and two triples for St. Michael’s (6-7). Berhost went 5-5 with two runs scored and nine RBIs in the second game while Gabaldon went 3-4 with five runs scored. “It was a very good offensive day for us,” St. Michael’s head coach Roseanne Noedel said. “We had the opportunity to work on different things at the plate.” Berhost pitched all six innings and had a total of four walks and 5 strikeouts. Capital (3-10) begins District 2AAAA play with a home doubleheader against Española Valley on Saturday.


Wizards top Celtics to clinch playoff berth The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Washington Wizards are in the playoffs for the first time since 2008, clinching an Eastern Conference berth Wednesday Wizards 118 night with a 118-92 win over the Boston Celtics. Celtics 92 Marcin Gortat scored 22 points to lead the Wizards, who gathered for a celebratory huddle at midcourt after the final whistle. John Wall, the 2010 No. 1 overall draft pick playing the first meaningful late-season games of his career, added 13 points and 10 assists. SPURS 111, WARRIORS 90 In San Antonio, Texas, Tony Parker had 18 points and eight assists, Tim Duncan had 15 points and eight rebounds, and the Spurs extended its franchise-record winning streak to 19 games. San Antonio (59-16) extended its league-leading record to four games over the Thunder City (54-19) ahead of their matchup Thursday night in Oklahoma City. BULLS 105, HAWKS 92 In Atlanta, D.J. Augustin scored 23 points and Chicago bumped the slumping Hawks out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with two weeks left in the season.

Chicago took control with a 16-3 run in the second quarter and led the rest of the way, fending off the last of Atlanta’s runs when Jimmy Butler swished a 3-pointer with just over a minute remaining.

who never trailed despite again being without Greg Oden, Dwyane Wade and Ray Allen. The win kept Miami percentage points (52-22) ahead of Indiana (53-23) in the East.

KNICKS 110, NETS 81 In New York, J.R. Smith had 24 points, eight rebounds and six assists, Carmelo Anthony added 23 points and 10 rebounds, and the Knicks beat city rival Brooklyn to extend a late-season playoff push. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 17 points a game after spraining his right ankle to help the Knicks win for the 12th time in 15 games, dominating a team that had the best record in the Eastern Conference since the new year.

NUGGETS 137, PELICANS 107 In Denver, Kenneth Faried scored a career-high 34 points and added 13 rebounds, and Denver scored a season high in routing New Orleans.

RAPTORS 107, ROCKETS 103 In Toronto, DeMar DeRozan scored 29 points, Jonas Valanciunas and Greivis Vasquez each had 15, and the Raptors won their seventh straight home meeting with Houston. Terrence Ross scored 14 points and John Salmons had 12 as the short-handed Raptors won for the fourth time in five games. HEAT 96, BUCKS 77 In Miami, LeBron James scored 17 points, Chris Bosh added 15, and the Heat stayed atop the Eastern Conference with a win over Milwaukee. Mario Chalmers added 14 for the Heat,

CAVALIERS 119, MAGIC 98 In Orlando, Fla., Dion Waiters scored 26 points, Spencer Hawes and Tristan Thompson had 20 each, and Cleveland beat the Magic. PACERS 101, PISTONS 94 In Indianapolis, Paul George had 27 points and 13 rebounds, David West scored 15 points, and Indiana snapped a three-game skid with its win over Detroit. BOBCATS 123, 76ERS 93 In Philadelphia, Al Jefferson had 25 points and 10 rebounds to lead Charlotte past Philadelphia and closer to a playoff berth. TIMBERWOLVES 102, GRIZZLIES 88 In Minneapolis, Kevin Love had 24 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists for his third career triple-double, and Minnesota dealt Memphis a loss it could ill afford.

Kentucky: Calipari’s approach not unique Continued from Page B-1 start five first-year players Saturday against Wisconsin, headlined by twin guards Andrew and Aaron Harrison and power forward Julius Randle, a potential lottery pick in the June draft. “He’s tough on us,” said Randle, when asked to describe what it’s like to play for Calipari. “You may not like it some days, but at the end of the day, it’s what’s best for us.” Calipari is hardly unique. Ohio State’s Thad Matta has churned out five one-anddones since 2006, and Rick

Barnes of Texas has produced four. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski has lost a couple, and could lose standout Jabari Parker when he makes his stayor-go decision. It’s just that Calipari is the biggest offender — or opportunist. Since 2006, he’s sent 13 oneand-done players to the NBA. They’ve combined to make more than $181 million in salary alone. And if all of them play through their current contracts, that total would surpass $460 million — nearly equaling the gross domestic product of the island nation of Tonga —

even with several of them playing out relatively paltry rookie contracts. That figure doesn’t include endorsement deals, either. Throw in the millions they’re paid for hawking sneakers, apparel and everything else, and the total closes in on a billion. “He put a lot of responsibility on us at a young age,” said Sacramento Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins, who played for Calipari at Kentucky. “That basically prepared us for the next level.” It’s important to note that Calipari doesn’t agree with

the current NBA rules, which require that players be a year removed from high school before entering the draft. If it were up to him, he said last week, it would be a two-year waiting period. “But it’s between the NBA and the players’ association. Has nothing to do with me or the NCAA,” Calipari said. “So I just think we’re all playing the hand we’re dealt. Kids are going on to the league from us and performing. And I’m proud of that. Would I like to have had them for four years? Yes. But I also like what’s happened for them and their families.”

Jackson: An outspoken, 3-time Pro Bowler Continued from Page B-1 challenge. The Redskins are getting a three-time Pro Bowl receiver with speed, someone who singlehandedly can change a defense’s approach. He set career highs with 82 catches for 1,332 yards last year for the NFC East champion Eagles. And Jackson, who led the NFL in punt return average in 2009, can give a badly needed boost to Washington’s special teams, although his production in the return game has waned over the last three years. “It’s an exciting time to be a Redskins fan and a part of this team because of the firepower that we have,” Griffin said in a statement to reporters. “Everyone needs to understand that we haven’t won anything yet, and these next few months will be about building those bonds and chemistry so that we can.” The Redskins are also getting a player not afraid to speak his mind who isn’t shy about his talents. He had a history of offthe-field issues in his six seasons with the Eagles. Among the lowlights: In 2011, he was deactivated for a game for being late for a team meeting and dropped more

passes than usual, part of a season-long spillover from his unfulfilled desire for a new contract that led to an 11-day training camp holdout. Last year, in Chip Kelly’s first season, Jackson fumed at members of the coaching staff on the sideline during a game and had to be restrained by two teammates, upset because he didn’t get the ball when he was wide open. He later lobbied for yet another new contract — just two years after getting a five-year, $48.2 million deal that included a $10 million signing bonus. The Eagles decided enough was enough and tried unsuccessfully to trade Jackson. They released him last week, which Jackson called “a humbling experience.” Regarding his reputation in the locker room, he said: “I’m not really here to address that. I feel the people that really know me and know what type of player I am, they respect me and know I’m a team guy.” The day the Eagles let him go, Jackson issued a statement quashing another offthe-field report, denying involvement in gang activity near his hometown in Southern California. “I just felt that was the right thing to do

at the right time, and eventually I think people will understand and see the real DeSean Jackson and not see the painted picture that was put out on me,” Jackson said Wednesday. On his conference call with reporters, Jackson went out of his way to point out some of his positive endeavors. He cited his foundation that raises money for research into pancreatic cancer, which claimed his father’s life in 2009. He also mentioned his book, No Bullies in the Huddle. One serious matter to resolve — at least in the eyes of the fans — is whether Jackson will wear No. 10, as he did with the Eagles. Griffin already has that number in Washington. “We talked about it a little bit,” Jackson said. “That’s a decision that hasn’t been made yet so far. … But maybe RG3 will wear No. 3.” The Redskins are coming off a 3-13 season overwhelmed by bad chemistry between coach Mike Shanahan and franchise player Griffin. Shanahan was fired and replaced by Jay Gruden, who will be trying to set a new tone in the locker room.

Napoli leads Red Sox over Orioles The Associated Press

BALTIMORE — Mike Napoli homered and drove in four runs, John Lackey allowed three hits in six Red Sox 6 innings and the Boston Orioles 2 Red Sox spoiled the Baltimore debut of Ubaldo Jimenez by beating the Orioles 6-2 Wednesday night. David Ortiz hit a two-run homer off Jimenez (0-1) and Dustin Pedroia had four hits for the defending World Series champion Red Sox, now 1-1 after losing to Baltimore on opening day. Nelson Cruz homered for the second time in two games for the Orioles, who mustered only six hits off Lackey and three relievers. Jimenez allowed four runs, five hits and three walks in six innings. He struck out six. BLUE JAYS 3, RAYS 0 In St. Petersburg, Fla., Mark Buehrle allowed four hits over 8⅔ innings, Jose Bautista homered twice and Toronto beat Tampa Bay. Buehrle (1-0) struck out 11 and walked one. Sergio Santos entered after Ben Zobrist had a two-out single off Buehrle in the ninth and walked Evan Longoria. Brett Cecil then struck out pinch-hitter Matt Joyce for his first save. ATHLETICS 6, INDIANS 1 (1ST GAME) In Oakland, Calif., Scott Kazmir shut out his former team into the eighth inning in his Oakland debut, and the Athletics beat the Indians in

grounder. Ronald Belisario (1-0) pitched 1⅓ hitless innings for the win.

the first game of a day-night doubleheader. Alberto Callaspo hit a two-run homer and Yoenis Cespedes, Jed Lowrie and Brandon Moss added RBI hits for the Athletics, who broke out offensively after being shut out Monday in their big league record 10th straight opening loss. Kazmir (1-0) allowed just three hits and no walks in 7⅓ scoreless innings, striking out five. TIGERS 2, ROYALS 1 (10 INNINGS) In Detroit, Ian Kinsler homered and drove in the winning run with a single in the 10th inning to lift the Tigers over the Royals. Max Scherzer pitched eight scoreless innings for the Tigers, but Joe Nathan blew his first

save chance since signing with Detroit in the offseason. Acquired from Texas for Prince Fielder in a November blockbuster trade, Kinsler homered in the fourth and won the game with a line drive to left-center field off Tim Collins (0-1). Al Alburquerque (1-0) earned the win. WHITE SOX 7, TWINS 6 (11 INNINGS) In Chicago, Leury Garcia reached on a bunt single in the 11th inning and came home on a balk and a pair of wild pitches by Samuel Deduno, giving the White Sox a win over the Twins. Before a crowd of just 10,625, Chicago came back from a 6-4 deficit in the ninth on Garcia’s run-scoring single off Glen Perkins and Adam Eaton’s RBI

ASTROS 3, YANKEES 1 In Houston, Dexter Fowler homered and tripled and Matt Dominguez added a home run late to help the Astros take the opening series from the Yankees with a second straight win. Houston won the opener 6-2 and put a damper on the first series of Derek Jeter’s final season. Jeter was 0 for 3 with a walk and a strikeout. Fowler’s leadoff homer put Houston up and he scored the second run after his triple in the third. The Yankees scored in the seventh before the Astros added an insurance run with Dominguez’s homer in the bottom half. INTERLEAGUE RANGERS 4, PHILLIES 3 In Arlington, Texas, Shin-Soo Choo drew a bases-loaded, game-ending walk against Jonathan Papelbon as the Rangers rallied in the ninth inning for the second night in a row, beating the Phillies. The Rangers scored three times in the ninth off Papelbon (0-1), who gave up four hits while retiring only one batter. Adrian Beltre, whose ninthinning single Tuesday night drove home Choo with the winning run, started this rally with a leadoff single. After Mitch Moreland’s double, pinch-hitter Jim Adduci had an RBI infield single and Leonys Martin singled through a drawn-in infield to drive in the tying run.


Johnson homer lifts Braves over Brewers The Associated Press

MILWAUKEE — Atlanta pitcher Aaron Harang and the Brewers’ Matt Garza had no-hit bids until Braves 1 Chris Johnson homBrewers 0 ered with two outs in the seventh inning, sending the Braves to a victory. Harang (1-0) didn’t allow a hit until Logan Schafer grounded a single leading off the bottom of the seventh. Making his Braves’ debut, Harang gave up two hits in 6⅔ innings, struck out three and walked one. NATIONALS 5, METS 1 In New York, Gio Gonzalez homered in his first start for the second straight season and pitched three-hit ball to lead the Nationals over the Mets.

Ian Desmond also went deep and Jayson Werth had four hits for the Nationals, who followed up their 10-inning comeback on opening day with a more routine victory against one of Gonzalez’s favorite foes. The left-hander struck out six and walked one in six comfortable innings, improving to 6-0 in his last seven starts against New York. Bartolo Colon (0-1) was touched up for nine hits over six innings in his Mets debut. ROCKIES 6, MARLINS 5 In Miami, Jordan Pacheco had three hits, Jordan Lyles won in his Colorado debut as the Rockies held on for a victory over the Marlins for their first win of the season. Charlie Blackmon and Michael Cuddyer each had two hits and an RBI for Colorado, which lost the first two games

of the season-opening series. Giancarlo Stanton hit a tworun homer and drove in three runs, all after Miami fell behind 6-1. GIANTS 2, DIAMONDBACKS 0 In Phoenix, Tim Hudson allowed three hits while working into the eighth inning in his first start for the Giants, and San Francisco beat Arizona. Hudson (1-0) was making his first start since July 24 after fracturing his right ankle against the Mets while pitching for the Braves. The veteran right-hander had four strikeouts and no walks, and had Arizona hitters pounding the ball into the ground. Arizona starter Trevor Cahill (0-1) held the Giants scoreless until the fifth. Angel Pagan singled in a run in the fifth and Michael Morse doubled in a run in the sixth to make it 2-0.

Sergio Romo shut down the Diamondbacks in order to record his second save. REDS 1, CARDINALS 0 In Cincinnati, Chris Heisey’s single in the bottom of the ninth inning ended Cincinnati’s record scoreless streak to open a season and sent the Reds to a 1-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night following a long rain delay. The Reds set a modern franchise record by failing to score in the first 17 innings of the season. Their previous worst was 13 scoreless innings in 1909 and 1934. Ryan Ludwick and Todd Frazier opened the ninth with singles off Carlos Martinez (0-1). After a sacrifice, Brayan Pena was walked to load the bases and the pinch-hitting Heisey singled up the middle.

“I know the balls are a little bit heavier when you put them through the humidor,” said Tim Federowicz, returning Isotopes catcher. “I think we had good success compared to the year before as far as the sharpness of our pitchers’ stuff. But I think the pitchers will like it for sure because the ball won’t carry as much.” However, it seemed to curb the hitting prowess of the Isotopes in return. After posting the league’s best batting average, Albuquerque was ninth in the league in batting (.271), hit its fewest home runs ever (110) and the 746 runs the Isotopes produced were the fewest since 2006. That might change this year. While outfielder Nick “Chili” Buss returns to the lineup after driving in 100 runs in 2013, Albuquerque should get a boost from the return of Trayvon Robinson, who hit 26 home runs when the out-

fielder was with the team in 2011. Fan favorite Tim Federowicz returns after spending most of last season with the parent club Los Angeles Dodgers, but did hit eight home runs in 79 at-bats with the Isotopes. The power supply should also be bolstered by the addition of infielder Clint Robinson (13 home runs in 2013), catcher Miguel Olivo (who once hit 24 home runs with the Kansas City Royals). Robinson has good memories of playing in Albuquerque, having hit two home runs in his Triple-A debut in Isotopes Park with the then-Omaha Royals in 2011. “Albuquerque is known for its offense, and I think it’s going to be no different with this team,” Robinson said. If the combination of pitching and power meshes into a winning team, that might make the trips to all points in the PCL a lot easier to stomach.

That’s what will get Federowicz back to Los Angeles, Berryhill said. “There’s strategy involved, and that’s what I’m here for,” he said. “Player development is obviously a big part of it, but these players need to be ready for the next step, and for a lot of them it means being in certain situations that will make them better.”

Bittersweet ending to ski season

Feds back Utah ski resort’s snowboard restriction

he regional ski scene, at least lift-served, comes to an end this weekend with the closure of all the ski areas still open — with the exception of Monarch Mountain, Silverton and Sipapu, which will run through April 13. The season began with tremendous expectations, as early snowfalls provided a great base. Ski Santa Fe opened top to bottom on its planned opening day, and by Dec. 12 it had a 40-inch base. But in January and February, the region went into a prolonged dry spell and on runs without snowmaking, stumps, logs, rocks and grass began to show. Some storms in late February and early March — just in time for spring break — restored conditions. I had one great powder day then, hitting my favorite line on the out-ofbounds Big Tesuque Peak run at Ski Santa Fe. But late snowfall tapered off, and while the skiing is still quite good under blue bird skies, those precious late season dumps we often get did not arrive. Meanwhile, conditions at Wolf Daniel Creek, Silverton, Crested Butte, Gibson Monarch and even Purgatory and Snow Trax Telluride, were slightly to significantly better all season. It’s still snowing in southern Colorado, so skiing should be good this weekend. Ski Santa Fe, approaching closing weekend with a 44-inch base, hosted the Gladfelter Memorial Bump Contest on March 29 on Slalom on a beautiful spring day in front of a raucous crowd on the deck at Totemoff’s. Finishing atop the over-50 ski men’s group was the silky smooth and explosive Paul Laur, followed by Mike Thompson, Robert Kahn, Steve Hield and Mark Boslough. Taking the very competitive men’s 18- to 49-year-old ski division was Gary Moreno (who also had the highest overall score of the event), followed by Sam Ruyle, Thomas Fitzgerald and Erik Bernsten. Topping this women’s age group was Shannon Allen, followed by Jacqueline Rea and Anna Day. Winning the men’s 18- to 49-year-old snowboard group was Justin Bobb, trailed by Michael Devoti, Jack Emery, Zach Smith and Dan Calderon. Taking the women’s title in this category was Zora Djenohan, trailed by Amy Hickey and Maggie Anderson. In the youth classes, taking the girls under-10 ski title was Morgan Allen; taking the boys title was Owen Cespon. Winning the snowboard class for boys under 10 was Cyrus Curtis. The 14- to 17-yearold boys ski title went to Alistair Fene — who did the course on a single ski! Trailing him were Gavin Laur and Isaac Begley Urra. Hutton Broadcasting was the event’s primary sponsor. Taos Ski Valley, with a 54-inch base, is closing out this weekend with the Dos Equis Airbag Days. A 14-foot-high kicker has been built at the base of Strawberry Hill. Anyone age 21 and up can try it out for free from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, but it culminates 2-4 p.m. Sunday with a championship showdown that requires a $10 entry fee. Competitors are judged on amplitude, costume and style. Sign up at the front desk. The bittersweet day will mark the finale of the current ownership of TSV, as it transitions from the founding Blake family to its new owner, billionaire Louis Bacon. Sipapu, the tiny area with a big attitude, will remain open on weekends from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. through April 13. It reports a 30-inch base. Lift tickets are $25 for adults and teens, $10 for kids. Wolf Creek, with an enviable 98-inch base, ends the season with great deals and fun activities, including a Local Appreciation Day on Sunday. Lift tickets will be $38 for adults and $22 for seniors and children, with no ID required. The same prices apply Saturday for College Day. Also, enjoy the final race in its Fun Race Series on Saturday. It’s free and open to skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities. It has recorded 323 inches of snow this winter, with more predicted, Monarch, registering a fat 97-inch base and 317 inches this year, hosts its signature event of the season, Kayaks on Snow, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 12. Contestants race head to head, similar to Skier Cross, down a specially designed course featuring berms, banks and bumps, ending in an icy pond. For details or registration, call 719-530-5081. On April 13, celebrate closing day with a parking lot cook-off and tailgate party. Crested Butte, cruising to the finish with an 81-inch base, will hold a Slush Huck on Saturday, with contestants dressed in wacky costumes skimming across water on their skis, snowboards or snowbikes. The fun begins at 4 p.m. Also on tap will be live music by the Empty Bottle Blues Band on the Butte 66. Closing day is Sunday, and it brings Funky Bob performing outside Uley’s Cabin at the Ice Bar from noon to 2 p.m. Then, head on down to Butte 66 for Whiskey Tango starting at 2:30 p.m. The resort has some $99 stay and ski packages for the closing fete. Telluride, sporting a 72-inch base, presents a pond skim and party at Gorrono Ranch on Sunday’s closing day, featuring DJ Soul Atomic. Purgatory, with a 60-inch base, wraps up operations Sunday. Lift tickets are running $59 for adults, $26 for children, $33 for teens and $37 for seniors. Silverton Mountain, reporting a 95-inch base (though its website says it received 80 inches the past week, which is hard to reconcile with its reported base) is offering guided or unguided skiing this weekend and on April 11-13.

As temperatures rise in Santa Fe, so do trail runners, in search of shade, cool forest breezes and mountain streams. COURTESY PHOTO


Trail runners move to higher ground By Lucas Conley

For The New Mexican


h, the signs of spring in New Mexico. The winds whip up, fruit trees and allergies erupt in white blossoms of petals and Kleenex, and pairs of bright, pale, pasty legs shed their cloistered winter woolen slacks for neon polypro running shorts. It’s an annual ritual. Yes, spring is here. As the mercury climbs, so do we trail runners, working our way off the desert trails like those at La Tierra and the Rail Trail up into the Sangre de Cristos in search of shade, cool forest breezes and mountain streams. “We’re kind of like migratory birds,” says John Lumley, owner of the Running Hub, a local running shop. “As the snow melts, we run farther and higher into the mountains.” In the process, we leave behind hot, jarring asphalt streets increasingly packed with tourist traffic for soft forest paths, soaring vistas and the serenity of nature. This is not to imply the trails aren’t a major draw to visitors, too. In recent years, Santa Fe has built a reputation as a trail-running mecca, billed by Runner’s World as “one of the best places to run in the Southwest.” Outside, which is based in Santa Fe, recently ranked Santa Fe second only to Dolomites, Italy, for best trail running in its 2014 Travel Awards. Among the many reasons Santa Fe draws such accolades is the wide variety of terrain, elevation and microclimates right in our backyard. Jim Owens, president of the running club Santa Fe Striders, says his group runs more than 30 different mountain trails during the summer months, ranging from dense pine forests and Alpine meadows to remote, wind-raked tundra high above the tree line. Departing every Sunday morning with anywhere from two to 15 runners, the Striders assault everything the mountains have to offer — La Vega, Raven’s Ridge, Santa Fe Baldy or a

combination of multiple 12,000-foot peaks. It’s the snowpack, however, not their ambition, that dictates the schedule. “We took a group up to run the Aspen Vista Road on May 8 about two or three years ago,” recalls Owens. “We got about 4½ miles up and had to turn back. The snow drifts were 6-feet deep.” By the time the group returned for a second try two weeks later, the snow had completely vanished. As the mountains thaw, snowmelt spills into the valleys and swells the banks of the various rivers, seasonal creeks and acequias tucked throughout the area, revealing a host of hibernating, well-trod trails along their banks. Keeping your feet dry can be a challenge this time of year. Setting out from Tesuque on the Winsor trail — a burly path that climbs some 13 miles and 3,000 feet up to the parking lot of Ski Santa Fe — runners must ford Tesuque Creek more than a dozen times in the first few miles. Or try the Rio En Medio trail connecting from picturesque Aspen Ranch; the trail actually runs atop the narrow bank of a 136-year-old acequia. While there are plenty of lung-busting, highaltitude workouts to be found in the mountains, one need not be an adrenaline junkie or a trailrunning devotee to enjoy the web of trails that spans the Santa Fe and Pecos wilderness. For beginners, Bear Canyon, just eight miles up Hyde Park Road, offers a quick, swooping two-mile path under towering ponderosas. Migrate a couple miles farther up the road and you’ll find the “Lollipop,” a four-mile, out-andback loop created by the confluence of the Borrego, Bear Wallow and Winsor trails — complete with log-bridge river crossings. The Aspen Vista trail follows a forest road with a mostly gentle grade six miles up to panoramic views above the ski basin, ascending from 10,000 to 12,045 feet. Though you might wait until the snowdrifts melt before donning that pair of shorts.

SALT LAKE CITY — The U.S. Forest Service says it supports one of the last U.S. ski resorts to prohibit snowboarding in a court battle over a ban that snowboarders call discriminatory. The decision by the Alta ski area to promote a snowboarderfree experience to lure skiers and keep them safe is a rational rule that violates no constitutional rights, attorneys for the Forest Service said in court arguments filed this week. “Even if Plaintiffs established that they are similar to skiers and have been treated differently, they have failed to show that the federal defendants’ treatment of them was irrational,” Forest Service lawyers wrote. Four snowboarders filed the lawsuit in federal court in January. They’re claiming discrimination on national forest lands that make up most of the Alta ski area in the mountains east of Salt Lake City. The U.S. Forest Service was named as a defendant in a lawsuit, in which the snowboarders argue the ban violates the promise of equal treatment under the 14th Amendment. The legal back-and-forth has reignited a long-festering culture clash on the slopes between skiers and snowboarders. The new Forest Service brief comes a week after the ski area’s lawyers said the lawsuit degrades the U.S. Constitution and should be thrown out. Jon Schofield, an attorney for the snowboarders, said both filings mischaracterize the complaint, confuse applicable law and avoid the fact that Alta discriminates against snowboarders based on an inaccurate stereotype. Schofield said they’ll address the issues fully in an upcoming brief. “Before bringing suit, we considered every issue raised in these motions, and we believe the case rests on solid legal ground,” Schofield said. Under a 40-year permit issued to Alta by the Forest Service in 2002, the ski area is allowed to restrict any type of skiing device that creates an unnecessary risk to other skiers. The Forest Service said it agrees with Alta that the way snowboarders slide down the slopes is a legitimate safety concern for skiers. In a filing last week, Alta attorneys explained that skiers find the slopes at Alta more peaceful, safe and enjoyable because they don’t have to worry about being hit by snowboarders whose sideways stance leaves them with a blind spot that can make their wide, sweeping turns a danger to others on the slopes. “These differences create safety concerns that can be avoided or minimized by not allowing snowboarders,” Forest Service lawyers wrote in the new filing. Alta is one of 120 ski resorts that has a permit to use Forest Service land, the court brief says. The agency’s lawyers say they are aware of Alta’s snowboarding prohibition but argue the agency was not part of the decision to enact the ban and does not make a profit from it. Based on a congressionally mandated formula, Alta paid the Forest Service between $305,000 and $474,000 each of the past five years. That represents less than 1 percent of the agency’s annual budget, their attorneys said.

RAY: The dashboard

Since buying a Prius, I have become overly interested in gas mileage. The dashboard tells me I am regularly getting over 50 mpg. But when I try to measure mileage the old-fashioned way (actually

readouts actually are pretty good, Pat. Better than what you can do yourself. TOM: One of the auto testers from Consumer Reports told us that, while they don’t rely on them for published results, they’ve found that the dashboard mileage readings from most manufacturers were accurate to within 1 mile per gallon. Not all of them are that good -- and some are o≠ by quite a bit -- but most of them are right on the money. RAY: The better ones work by splicing a fuel-flow meter into the fuel line, which measures precisely how much fuel is actually going into the cylinders. So if the speedometer is accurate (which is not always the case), you can get a very accurate reading that way. TOM: And it turns out that’s much more accurate than the do-it-yourself




Dear Tom and Ray:



recording the amount of gas I put in the car and dividing by the number of miles I’ve driven), I come up with a figure about 3-4 mpg lower than what the dashboard claims. So, does the dashboard lie? What about these real-time mileage readouts? Are they any use? Can I trust my Prius? Thanks. -- Pat RAY: Well, of course you’ve become obsessed with gas mileage after buying a Prius, Pat. You’ve got Prius Syndrome. TOM: Symptoms include focusing on your instant fuel-economy reading on the dashboard when you should be watching the road, and feathering the gas pedal when starting o≠ from a traffic light, trying to keep the car in electric mode as long as possible, while ignoring the irate drivers behind you who want to know why it’s taking you 25 seconds to get to 15 mph.

method. That’s because in reality, it’s very di∞cult (unless you’re Consumer Reports, with beakers and syringes) to fill the tank to the exact same place each time you fill up. RAY: How do you know your tank is “full”? When the pump clicks o≠. Or when gas spills all over your Lucky Brand jeans. That’s a very inaccurate estimate, in reality. And the margin of error only increases when you have a small gas tank, like you have in the Prius. TOM: So I’d trust the Prius’ computer, Pat. And whatever you’re getting, remember that it’s plenty, compared with what the rest of us jamokes get ... unless you hit a tree while watching the mileage readout on the dashboard. Then your mileage will drop significantly! So please drive safely.
