Full-time mayor proposal stirs debate Charter amendment would expand mayoral power, pay By Milan Simonich The New Mexican

Mariel Nanasi favors the charter amendment to make Santa Fe’s part-time mayor into a full-time position. “Right now, the mayor gets paid less than a full-time lifeguard,” said Nanasi, executive director of an organization that promotes

renewable energy. Steve Farber, an attorney and a former Santa Fe City Council member, is one of the more vocal critics of the amendment. “It’s a power grab,” he said. Nanasi and Farber demonstrate how the mayoral proposal, Charter Amendment 9, has divided the city and stirred emotions. A political committee — Vote For 9 for a Full Time Mayor — says Santa Fe’s government is sufficiently large and complex enough to justify the change.

“Despite having a budget of more than $320 million, 1,500 employees and more than 80,000 residents, Santa Fe still has a parttime mayor,” the organization said when it launched its campaign in mid-January. Opponents of making the mayor’s job

Much of Michael Segura’s campaign for a District 1 council seat has focused on his family’s deep roots in the city and his community involvement.

By Milan Simonich The New Mexican


wo candidates with vastly different backgrounds and track records are competing for the open District 1 seat on the Santa Fe City Council in the March 4 municipal election. Michael Segura has tailored his campaign in the north-side district around his deep roots in Santa Fe and his knowledge of its neighborhoods. His opponent, Signe Lindell, grew up in Western New York but says she made Santa Fe her home by choice. She has lived in the city since 2000. Lindell has a doctorate and was a university instructor in Ohio before moving to New Mexico. Segura says he wants to obtain a college degree and perhaps go to law school. District 1 covers 18 square miles, including all of the area north of the Santa Fe River as well as some west-side neighborhoods south of the river. It runs from Osage Avenue in the west to much of downtown and reaches east to Cerro Gordo Road, including some of the city’s priciest real estate as well as less-affluent barrios, middle-class neighborhoods and public housing complexes. It is the most politically active of the four

council districts, with the highest number of registered voters: 17,632. By contrast, even after a major annexation on the city’s southwest side added some 4,400 registered voters to District 3 on Jan. 1, that district still has just 12,882 residents eligible to cast ballots in the city election. When votes are counted on election night, District 1 typically has the highest total among the four districts. Both of the candidates have experience in the business world. Segura’s work was mostly in investments and insurance. He has had financial problems, including a bankruptcy and tax debts of about $1.5 million. Lindell owned a sign company in Albuquerque and sold real estate in Santa Fe. Even their methods of campaign financing are different. Segura accepted public financing. Lindell is raising contributions privately. The winner of a four-year term will succeed Councilor Chris Calvert, who isn’t seeking re-election after eight years in office. The other District 1 seat on the eight-member governing body has long been held by Patti Bushee, who is running for mayor. If she wins that office, she and the council would appoint a replacement to serve out the remaining two years of her current term. Profiles begin on Page A-5

Nearly 70 years after the first detonation of a nuclear weapon, the National Cancer Institute is set to begin what could be a years-long study of the health effects of the 1945 Trinity Site atomic test on New Mexico residents. Institute scientists said the study will attempt to reconstruct the internal doses of radiation received by residents living near the Southern New Mexico blast site, using information on their diets and other lifestyle factors, then determine possible connections to radioactive fallout from the blast to deaths and illnesses, especially from cancer, over the past seven decades. “The goal is to determine the radiation doses [received by] the population of New Mexico living there at the time of the Trinity test,” said Jennifer Loukissas, communications manager for the National Cancer Institute. “We plan to assess the health impact to the entire state of New Mexico.” Trinity downwinders, especially some of those living closest to the test-blast site, expressed gratitude that such a health study is being conducted but also frustration that it wasn’t undertaken long before now. “This has been a long time in coming,” said Tina Cordova, a cancer survivor who grew up in Tularosa and is now leader of the Tularosa Basin Downwinders’ Consortium. The group has been battling for about 10 years to include Trinity downwinders in federal legislation that has acknowledged and compensated other downwinders of above-ground U.S. nuclear testing in the 1950s and early ’60s. The legislation ignored communities downwind from the Trinity Site, about 80 miles north of Alamogordo on what is now the U.S. Army’s White Sands Missile Range. However, the scientists and workers at the detona-

In brief


Texas hospital: No decision on order to end life support FORT WORTH, Texas — A spokeswoman for a Texas hospital says it won’t say when it plans to appeal a judge’s order to take a pregnant brain-dead woman off of life support. J.R. Labbe says John Peter Smith Hospital wouldn’t announce a decision Saturday but she didn’t say when it might. A judge gave the Fort Worth hospital until 5 p.m. Monday to comply with his ruling to remove Marlise Munoz from life support, which her husband Erick Munoz says she would have wanted. She was 14 weeks pregnant when her husband found her unconscious Nov. 26, possibly due to a blood clot. The hospital says it has a legal duty to protect the fetus and is considering an appeal.

Anti-abortion protest draws thousands to San Francisco SAN FRANCISCO — Many thousands of antiabortion protesters from across California marched through downtown San Francisco on Saturday, calling for restrictions on a medical procedure that was legalized more than 40 years ago. One protester, high school senior Nancy Castellanos came to San Francisco on one of six buses of worshipers from St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Dixon, about 70 miles away. “I am 100 percent, completely against abortion,” Castellanos, 17, said. “If you don’t want the child, there’s always adoption.”

Syria talks focus on food for besieged city of Homs GENEVA — Representatives of Syria’s warring factions met for talks in the same room at the United Nations on Saturday, signaling the start of the first serious effort to bring peace to Syria since Arab spring protests three years ago propelled the country into a devastating civil war. The rival delegations met twice, in the morning and the afternoon, in sessions at the United Nations’ sprawling headquarters in Geneva headed by the U.N. special envoy, Lakhdar Brahimi. The delegates entered and left through separate doors and did not speak to one another directly, but rather relayed their comments through Brahimi, a veteran mediator of many wars who was seated between them. Brahimi said he hoped these first sessions, scheduled to continue Sunday, will lead to an agreement to allow food to reach starving residents besieged by government forces in the center of the city of Homs.

Celebrating the everydog Mixed breeds getting chance to rub elbows with purebreds in new event at Westminster By Jennifer Peltz

The Associated Press

NEW YORK hen the nation’s foremost dog show added an event open to mixed breeds, owners cheered that everydogs were finally having their day. They see the Westminster Kennel Club’s new agility competition, which will allow mutts at the elite event next month for the first time since the 1800s, as a singular chance to showcase what unpedigreed dogs can do. “It’s great that people see that, ‘Wow, this is a really talented mixed breed that didn’t come from a fancy breeder,’ ” said Stacey Campbell, a San Francisco dog trainer heading to Westminster with Roo!, a high-energy — see exclamation point — husky mix she adopted from an animal shelter. “I see a lot of great dogs come through shelters, and they would be great candidates for a lot of sports. And sometimes they get overlooked because they’re not purebred dogs,” Campbell said. Roo! will be one of about 225 agility dogs whizzing through tunnels, around poles and over jumps before the Westminster crowd. And, if she makes it to the championship, on national TV. Animal-rights advocates call the development a good step, though it isn’t ending their long-standing criticism that the show champions a myopic view of man’s best friend. Westminster’s focus is still on the nearly


190 breeds — three of them newly eligible — that get to compete toward the best-in-show trophy; more than 90 percent of the agility competitors are purebreds, too. But Westminster representatives have made a point of noting the new opening for mixed breeds, or “all-American dogs,” in showspeak. “It allows us to really stand behind what we say about Westminster being the show for all the dogs in our lives” while enhancing the 138-year-old event with a growing, funto-watch sport, said David Frei, the show’s longtime TV host. Over the years, mixed-breed enthusiasts have nosed around for recognition for their pets, be they carefully crossed goldendoodles or anyone’s-guess mutts. And they haven’t turned only to gag events like “Great American Mutt” shows with categories such as “longest tongue” and “looks most like owner.” A 36-year-old group called the Mixed Breed Dog Clubs of America awards titles in various sports and even has had best-inshow-style competitions, where dogs were judged on their overall look, movement and demeanor, said President Kitty Norwood of Redwood, Calif. Some dog organizations have allowed mixes to compete in obedience, agility and other sports for years, and the prominent American Kennel Club — the governing body for Westminster and many other events — followed suit in 2009. It has since enrolled some 208,000 mixes and dogs from nonrecognized breeds as eligible competitors. One of the nation’s oldest sporting events, the Westminster show had a few mixed breeds in its early days but soon became purebred territory. This year, more than 2,800 pedigreed, primped dogs are due to be judged on how well they fit breed standards that can specify everything from tempera-

ment to toe configuration. That has long made Westminster a flashpoint for the purebred-versus-mixed-breed debate. Proponents say breeds preserve historic traits and help predict whether a puppy will make a good police dog or hiking companion, for instance, facilitating happy pet-owner matches. Animal-rights activists argue that the desire for purebreds fuels puppy mills, forsakes mixed-breed dogs that need homes and sometimes propagates unhealthy traits. (The American Veterinary Medical Association hasn’t taken a position on whether mixed breeds or purebreds are generally healthier.) Westminster President Sean McCarthy says the club supports conscientious breeding and is “a big believer in dogs that are well cared for, loved and healthy,” purebred or not. But to critics, the show spotlights a skin-deep appreciation of dogs while downplaying darker sides of breeding, and adding some mixed breeds outside the main event goes only so far. “It’s definitely a step in the right direction,” says Daphna Nachminovitch, senior vice president for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. But there are better ways to help dogs than “supporting this antiquated entertainment show,” she said. PETA members have protested Westminster, once getting into the show’s center ring with signs in 2011. The group plans to demonstrate outside the show this year. Matt Bershadker, president of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, hopes introducing mixed breeds at Westminster will lead emphasis “away from the aesthetics of dogs to what is special about dogs … the very, very special connection that people have with dogs.”

Kiev protesters attack building housing police KIEV, Ukraine — New violence erupted in Ukraine’s capital during the night as a large crowd attacked a government exposition and conference hall where police were stationed inside. Early Sunday, demonstrators were throwing firebombs into the Ukrainian House building and setting off fireworks, and police responded with tear gas. The outburst underlined a growing inclination for radical actions in the protest movement that has gripped Kiev for two months. The building under attack is about 250 yards from Independence Square, where mostly peaceful demonstrations have been held around the clock since early December and where protesters have set up an extensive tent camp.

Death toll expected to reach 32 in retirement home fire L’ISLE-VERTE, Quebec — Crews on Saturday recovered just two more bodies on the third day of an excruciating search through the charred remains of a Quebec retirement home, now covered in ice as thick as two feet. A total of 32 people are believed to have been killed in the massive fire, but just 10 bodies have been found. The cause of Thursday’s blaze in the small town of L’Isle-Verte remains under investigation. There were media reports that the fire began in the room of a resident who was smoking a cigarette, but police said that was just one possibility among many. The Associated Press

CAIRO — The anniversary of Egypt’s 2011 uprising brought a violent display of the country’s furious divisions Saturday, as giant crowds danced at government-backed rallies and security forces crushed demonstrations by rival Islamists and some secular activists. Clashes nationwide killed at least 29 protesters, health officials said. The starkly contrasting scenes reflect the three years of turmoil Egypt has faced since the Jan. 25, 2011, revolution began and ultimately toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak, replacing him with a transitional military council. Last summer’s millionsstrong demonstrations against Mubarak’s elected successor, Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, led to a military coup removing him. And as Egypt looks forward to presidential elections later this year, many celebrating Saturday in the famed Tahrir Square demanded army chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi run for president. “El-Sissi saved the nation. It was up in the air like this helicopter and he carried it to safety,” said Mervat Khalifa, 62, sitting on the sidewalk and wav-

ing to a helicopter overhead. Military helicopters showered crowds in Tahrir with small flags and gift coupons to buy refrigerators, heaters, blankets and home appliances. State-backed rallies also showcased prancing horses and traditional music for ecstatic crowds. Morsi’s supporters used Saturday’s anniversary to build new momentum in their defiance of the military and its political transition plan, despite being hit by a crippling police crackdown and rising public resentment against his Muslim Brotherhood group. “Anger is bigger than all. Repression sparks revolutions. The burning of Egypt won’t last,” a statement issued by a Brotherhood-led coalition said.

The fiercest clashes raged in an eastern Cairo suburb, where Islamist supporters fought with security forces for hours in pitched street battles. Troops fired over the crowd to disperse protesters who threw gasoline bombs. Protesters set up a field hospital to aid the wounded. Violence also was strong

in the provinces. A car bomb exploded outside a security camp in the city of Suez, where gunmen clashed with police, witnesses said. Nine civilians were wounded in the bombing, authorities said. In neighboring Ismailiya, protesters chanting “down with military rule” also battled security forces. In Alexandria, a female protester was shot and killed during clashes, officials said. Two protesters were killed in the southern city of Minya, security officials said. The clashes in the eastern Cairo suburb of Alf Maskan were fiercest. The clashes contrasted with scenes of celebration in Tahrir Square and other major squares in provincial capitals, where long queues of demonstrators lined up to enter the tightly secured areas through metal detectors. Some celebrating wore paper masks with el-Sissi’s picture and their rallies showed a ferociously anti-Islamist tone.

Mayor: Ballot proposal would boost pay to $74K, raise of $44K Continued from Page A-1 full-time have no formal organization but are just as passionate. Sam Pick, who was mayor for 10 years in parts of the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s, is one of those who says the change would make city government more political and less efficient. Pick also says a full-time mayor is not justifiable because operation of day-to-day government services is the province of the city manager. Putting a full-time mayor alongside a full-time city manager means politics would infect what is supposed to be a nonpartisan government, Pick said. “The city manager takes a vanilla look at things,” Pick said. “He can’t be partisan because city government should not be a political operation.” He has another argument against making the mayor’s job full-time. Pick says there is not enough work for a mayor to do, given that the city manager and his administrative team are overseeing everything from the police protection to libraries. Las Cruces, a city with more than 100,000 residents, has both a city manager and a full-time mayor. Ken Miyagishima, the Las Cruces mayor, makes $74,000 in base pay, but with benefits, he pegs the cost of his job to taxpayers at $101,000 a year. Santa Fe’s ballot proposal also would pay the mayor $74,000, an increase of more than $44,000 from what the current part-time mayor’s job pays. The mayor’s salary could be changed by an independent commission if the charter amendment is approved. In an interview, Miyagishima said his daily duties as mayor are largely ceremonial or boosterish. From September to March, for instance, he visits all 26 elementary schools in Las Cruces. Like Mayor David Coss in Santa Fe, Miyagishima is the leading political figure in his city in cutting ribbons or welcoming conventioneers. But Miyagishima’s powers are more limited than what is proposed in Santa Fe. The Las Cruces city manager, not Miyagishima, supervises all department heads. The Las Cruces manager also hires them. Miyagishima and his City Council hire the manager and decide if he should be fired. In the proposed Santa Fe system, the full-time mayor would have “supervisory authority over the city manager, city attorney and city clerk without council approval,” the charter amendment says. This means the mayor could suspend or fire any of them without the City Council’s approval. Pick said he found this provision especially galling. The city clerk, he said, is not a political job and should not be filled or changed based on a politician’s whim. Under the proposed amendment, the Santa Fe City Council also could fire the city manager if at least six of the eight members voted against him. Currently, five of eight council votes are required to oust the manager. The political committee pushing for a full-time mayor said in a statement that the system would stabilize government: “Under the current part-time mayor structure, the city has seen 11 different city managers in just the three previous administrations, an average

can’t be partisan because city government should not be a political operation.” Sam Pick, former Santa Fe mayor opposes change to full-time mayor

tenure of 21 months. Proponents point to the full-time mayor structure as a way to limit turnover and streamline lines of reporting.” Pick said having a system in which either the mayor or six council members could independently fire the manager does not enhance stability. He said some of the turnover in Santa Fe managers occurred because of firings, but much of it was because managers moved voluntarily to other jobs. “No manager was fired in the 10 years I was mayor,” Pick said. If he learned one thing while in office, he said, it was that the mayor of Santa Fe should not be political. In the late 1980s, Pick was state Democratic Party chairman while serving as mayor. He said the political position he held mandated that he savage Garrey Carruthers, then New Mexico’s Republican governor. But after criticizing Carruthers one day, Pick said, he might have to ask him for help the next. Pick said he quit the party chairmanship because partisan activity was hurting the city. He said he feared that a fulltime mayor would make city government more political and less oriented to its basic missions: Snowy streets should be cleared, parks should be tidy, police responses should be quick. Neither politics nor a fulltime mayor would improve services, and city government is about delivering quality services, Pick said. Farber, who was a member of the charter review commission, wrote a scathing “minority report” against the mayoral proposal. “It is no exaggeration to state that the potential for an autocrat, an autocratic form of government and political patronage are made possible through the proposed consolidation of such enormous power in the office of the mayor,” Farber wrote. In an interview, Farber said a full-time mayor with the power to hire or fire the city manager would open the way to patronage, cronyism and nepotism in city jobs. Nanasi sees no such dangers, only benefits to paying the mayor a better salary, enhancing his or her powers and plainly establishing that the job needs to be full-time. “Right now, only retirees or independently wealthy people can run for mayor,” Nanasi said. Proponents also argue that the change would be good for business. “I am working for a full-time mayor for Santa Fe because small businesses need more accountable city government,” said Paul Hultin, a member of the political committee supporting the change. Pick says businesses already have a full-time government, headed by the city manager, to respond to their problems or needs. And if a company considering

Voters to decide on host of charter amendments

Santa Fe as a plant site wanted to see the mayor, common sense says he would clear his calendar and hold the meeting, Pick said. If the amendment is approved by voters, a full-time mayor would not take office until March 2018. Whoever wins the mayor’s office this year would still be considered part-time and would be paid about $29,600 a year, the same as city councilors.

The proposal for a full-time mayor of Santa Fe has grabbed headlines but is only part of a lengthy list of charter amendments on the city election ballot. Voters also will decide on eight other proposals. Charter Amendment 1: This measure would add a provision mandating that the City Council protect, preserve and enhance Santa Fe’s water resources. The amendment could influence council decisions on how much or how fast the city could grow. It calls for “regulation, conservation and relating development to water availability.” Charter Amendment 2: It would establish a policy on neighborhood preservation. Charter Amendment 3: This proposal would create a charter section pertaining to both employers and workers. It would establish a policy “in support of local business, an enduring local entrepreneurial spirit and the rights of all to earn a living wage.” Santa Fe’s minimum wage of $10.51 an hour — set to rise to $10.66 on March 1 — is the highest in New Mexico and one of the highest in the country. In addition, the wage rises based on changes in the federal Consumer Price

Index for the Western region. A report earlier this month shows the index rising 1.4 percent, which means a 15-cent-per-hour pay raise for minimum-wage workers in Santa Fe. Charter Amendment 4: It would establish an independent citizens commission to redraw City Council district boundaries at least every 10 years, after the U.S. census. Charter Amendment 5: It would require the City Council to have an ordinance limiting campaign contributions to candidates. This would protect an existing code provision that limits privately financed council candidates to $1,000 contributions from individual donors. Mayoral candidates have a $2,500 limit on individual contributions. Charter Amendment 6: This would require timely disclosure of proposed expenditures from tax increases or bond measures. Charter Amendment 7: This measure would authorize an independent audit committee. Charter Amendment 8: It would enable the mayor to vote on all matters that are before the City Council. Currently, the mayor can only vote to break ties or “make ties.” City staff members could not remember a mayor ever voting to create a tie.

Personal record casts shadow on Segura’s campaign By Milan Simonich The New Mexican


educing crime and creating jobs are cornerstone issues in Michael Segura’s campaign for the Santa Fe City Council. They also are albatrosses for Segura because of his personal record. He has been convicted of drunken driving three times, has filed for bankruptcy and has accumulated liens of almost $1.5 million for unpaid taxes. Segura said he has learned lessons about personal accountability from his arrests. As for his financial troubles and delinquent tax bills, he said, they occurred in part because of the economic downtown and his wife being seriously ill. “But it’s my responsibility,” he said. “The buck stops with me.” Segura said crime is a widespread problem in Santa Fe neighborhoods, as drug users commit burglaries and car break-ins. He said one of his interests on the council would be providing police with more resources and fighting drugs with programs to shrink demand. Much of his campaign has focused on his family’s deep roots in the city and his community involvement. A veteran of the Air Force, he said his military service after high school was the only significant time he was away from the city. Still, his criminal record has put him on the defensive. His opponent, Signe Lindell, tells people she can answer the question of whether she was ever arrested in one word — “Never.” That has left Segura to explain his record. He skipped over parts of it at least once. In a face-to-face interview, Segura said he was arrested in just one drunken-driving case nearly five years ago. “I take responsibility,” he said. “I was stupid and I admit it.” He called a few hours after the interview, saying he wanted to disclose that he also was arrested in two other drunken-driving cases. “I don’t know how far back the records go,” he said, “but they happened 25 or 30 years ago.” Court and jail records show that

Michael Segura, a candidate for a District 1 seat on the City Council, said crime is a widespread problem in Santa Fe neighborhoods. LUIS SÁNCHEZ SATURNO/THE NEW MEXICAN

Segura’s first two drunken-driving convictions were in 1991 and 2001. In the 2001 case, a police report said, Segura was intoxicated and “passed out behind the wheel of ’94 BMW at the intersection of Alameda and St. Francis.” His license was suspended at the time. His most recent arrest for drunken driving, in 2009, coincided with a tumultuous time in his life. Segura and his wife, Letitia Montoya, who has been an unsuccessful candidate for various state and local government offices, filed that year for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection. They listed their debts at $1.13 million and said they had between 50 and 99 creditors. A judge discharged their debts in September 2009. Segura also piled up tax bills that he said he is still paying down. A federal tax lien filed against him in 2008 listed his debt to the U.S. government at $1.33 million. The state filed tax liens against him in 2011 and 2012. Those debts were $149,954 and $16,081. Segura said his tax bills had surprised him. “I didn’t know I owed anything. I had a full-time bookkeeper

and accountant. I was never given any notice until the state and the feds notified me.” Segura’s bankruptcy filing in 2009 showed that his tax bills had accumulated over a decade. For the bankruptcy court, he listed $200,000 for federal taxes that were due between 1999 and 2007. He was in arrears to Santa Fe County for $4,500 in property taxes from 2004 to 2007. Segura also said he owed the state $10,000 on taxes that should have been paid between 1999 and 2007. He said he could not provide an accounting of how much he still owes from the liens, which originally totaled nearly $1.5 million. “I can’t find how much I owe, but it’s down to a minimal amount, less than $50,000,” he said. “I have fully cooperated with the IRS, but they keep changing agents on me. They quit or get reassigned, so it’s hard to get answers.” Segura, who turns 53 on Feb. 2, described himself as a risk-taker and job creator who hit a stretch of misfortune after years of success. “My mortgage company was a casualty of the recession,” he said. This setback was compounded, he said, because of a chronic illness afflicting his wife. “Newspaper people, all they want to do is tear down others,” Segura told a reporter. “It’s the people who stick their neck out and hire people who make the difference.” He said he had run his own company, Assure Financial, for 20 years and had been the co-owner of other businesses, including a restaurant that no longer is in operation. But in his bankruptcy filing five years ago, he listed his income as only $1,356 and household expenses of about $8,500. This is Segura’s second try for the City Council. He ran unsuccessfully in 1998. On campaign fliers, Segura lists one of his credentials for office as being licensed for 27 years in insurance and securities. Records of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission say Segura is “not currently registered as an investment adviser or representative.” The SEC says Segura worked as a registered investment adviser for three dif-

ferent companies between 2002 and 2011. One of them, Wells Fargo Advisors, fired him because he did not follow the firm’s procedures regarding outside business activities, his SEC file states. These days, he is a college student. He said he hoped to complete a bachelor’s degree and one day go to law school. The SEC file lists one arrest for Segura. It is a case that Segura talked about at length as an example of police abuse. He said an officer with the Tesuque Tribal Police Department arrested him on false charges and later shot him four times with a Taser. Prosecutors dismissed that case against Segura. He then filed a federal lawsuit against the Santa Fe County commissioners, former Santa Fe sheriff Greg Solano and Paul Colombe, the officer who arrested Segura and allegedly used a Taser on him. Colombe worked as a Tesuque officer but was cross-deputized by the county sheriff, according to Segura’s lawsuit. The confrontation between Colombe and Segura occurred about 11 p.m. July 10, 2009. Segura was a passenger in a car with two other people. They were going to a casino when Colombe pulled over the driver. Segura said the officer’s initial allegation was that she had rolled through a stop sign. Colombe subsequently arrested the woman on suspicion of drunken driving. In his lawsuit, Segura says the traffic stop escalated to violence because of Colombe. The officer told him he was under arrest for being a party to a crime, purportedly drunken driving. Colombe asked Segura his name. Segura says in his lawsuit that he first gave his correct name. But when asked again by the officer to identify himself, Segura said his name was “Smith.” “Within 45 seconds” Segura corrected that statement and again gave the officer his true name, according to his lawsuit. Colombe said Segura had concealed his identity, and that charge would be added to his arrest. Segura says in his lawsuit that while

he was being booked, Colombe, without any provocation, shot him with a Taser. “I was tortured,” said Segura, who was jailed for about 24 hours. Colombe, in a written response to the lawsuit, denied Segura’s claims. Colombe said Segura was at fault for any injuries and damages that he may have received. The officer said Segura’s “wrongful, unlawful and/or negligent acts” led to his arrest. Segura claims in the lawsuit against Colombe that Wells Fargo Advisors fired him because of publicity about his arrest. But prosecutors dropped the charges against Segura in November 2009. He was not fired until late June 2010. Segura said much of his campaign is spent knocking on doors in neighborhoods he knows and cares about. His community involvement, some of it decades old, is featured in his handouts. He lists himself as a former Brownie troop leader (“The only man there was,” he told one group), a onetime youth basketball coach, a former altar boy and a former sponsorship chairman of the American Cancer Society. His fliers also cite his membership in veterans and service organizations, including the American Legion and the Elks Lodge. But a spokeswoman for the lodge said Segura’s membership had been suspended for three years. She would not specify the reasons. Segura is running his campaign with $15,000 in public financing. Lindell declined to seek public money and is raising contributions on her own. They also differ on one of the charter amendments on the March 4 ballot. Segura favors making the mayor’s job full-time at a salary of $74,000 a year. Lindell opposes the measure, saying the cost could not be justified, given that Santa Fe has a city manager to run the government’s daily operations.

After years as city volunteer, Lindell aims for next step By Milan Simonich The New Mexican


t age 25, Signe Lindell received her doctorate and landed a teaching job at Kent State University in Ohio. It was an auspicious beginning for Lindell, the first person in her family to attend college. She had a tenuretrack position on a pretty campus where enrollment was strong. Kent State could have been a destination job. Lindell said she might still be there had she not started spending summers in New Mexico. She found New Mexico so alluring that, after fours years at Kent State, she resigned from her job and moved west to launch a career as a businesswoman. She has lived in New Mexico for 28 years, the last 13 in Santa Fe. Now Lindell hopes to begin a new chapter as a City Council member. She is running against Michael Segura in the north-side council district. It is Lindell’s first try for elective office after years of volunteer service in municipal government. “I’ve donated hundreds of hours to the city,” she said in an interview. “I’m very well-prepared for this.” Mayor David Coss appointed Lindell to the Planning Commission. She became zealous about understanding the arcane subjects of land use and building codes. She also served on the city’s Ethics and Rules Committee, which outlined standards of conduct for city officials and employees. She said she made Santa Fe her home by choice and is excited by the prospect

of serving on the City Council. “I wasn’t born here, but I got here as soon as I could,” Lindell said. Her commitment to frugality is another reason she wants to hold political office, Lindell says. “I believe in being careful with the people’s money. I want to make sure bond issues are explained front to back, and I’d like to see a simplified budget that is easily understood.” Lindell grew up on a dairy farm in Western New York, about 50 miles south of Buffalo. She said her upbringing prepared her for public service by

teaching her about sacrifice, the value of hard work and the importance of being a good neighbor. Every day, her mother milked their Holstein cows at 4:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Her father was an engineer on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Expectations were that Lindell would do her share of work on the farm and study hard in school. Her parents believed education was the ticket to success. They saved the money so she could go to college. Lindell voted for George McGovern for president in 1972, the same year she went off to what was then Salem College in West Virginia. She attacked school as she had farm labor, completing one assignment and then tackling another. After graduating from Salem, she went to West Virginia University for her master’s and doctoral degrees. She worked as a teaching assistant all through graduate school. Lindell said all the years of study paid off faster than she could have hoped. As a newly minted Ph.D., she received the job offer from Kent State. By then, Kent State was a national symbol of activism because of deadly shootings in 1970 during a campus protest against the Vietnam War. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young kept the tragedy in America’s consciousness with their famous lyrics, “Four dead in O-hi-o.” A reader with an interest in history, Lindell immersed herself in the details of the shootings, and she paid close attention to politics at all levels. But the breadth and beauty of New Mex-

ico, she said, ended her campus career. She moved to Albuquerque in 1985 and started a company that specialized in computerized commercial signs. One of her proudest moments in this campaign occurred when her former competitors in the sign business joined the effort to help get her elected. After selling her company and moving to Santa Fe in 2000, Lindell sold real estate. She let her license lapse because she said she did not want a sales job to create the appearance of any conflicts in her campaign. At Kent State, Lindell had met and married a man named William Swinney. They divorced but are friends. He lives in Santa Fe and is helping in her campaign. For the last 17 years, she has been with her partner, Maria Sanchez, with whom she lives off Gonzales Road. They had a real estate business for a time. Both also worked for Homewise Inc., a nonprofit real estate company that specializes in personal financial coaching to help people become homeowners. The sales staff at Homewise works on salary rather than commission. Lindell sold about 150 homes — or 30 a year — with the nonprofit. Each one was a triumph because the buyer achieved the goal of homeownership that once seemed out of reach, she said. Mike Loftin, executive director of Homewise, said Lindell stood out as a hard worker. “She really cares about people,”

Loftin said. “Sig is energizing and fun, a community-minded person.” Councilor Chris Calvert, who did not seek re-election, is supporting Lindell in the race to succeed him. “In my opinion, it’s no contest,” Calvert said. Lindell says she has taken her work ethic to the campaign trail. She walks neighborhoods each day, knocks on doors and tells everyone she meets that she is eager to be a public servant. She has not mentioned Segura during her campaign, though she is aware of some of his legal and financial problems. Lindell says she is campaigning exclusively on her own record. One of her more difficult decisions, she said, was choosing to run a privately financed campaign. Segura is using $15,000 in public financing. “I support a robust system of public financing for elections,” Lindell said. But, she said, public financing as it exists is flawed. Some are “masters at gaming this broken system. If elected, I’ll work with fellow councilors to fix it.” She said her financing for the campaign was a grass-roots effort involving friends, neighbors and relatives. And apparently it has been a successful effort. The first round of required campaign finance reports filed by candidates Thursday, Jan. 23, showed Lindell had raised $32,640, more than twice as much as the $15,000 that the city provides to council candidates who qualify for public funds. Lindell’s message on her answering machine exhorts callers to “keep making a difference.” She said that is her own pledge, too.

Effort to canonize New York priest highlights costs of sainthood By Carolyn Thompson The Associated Press

LACKAWANNA, N.Y. — The 25-year effort to elevate to sainthood a beloved Buffalo-area priest known as the “Padre of the Poor” has so far cost upward of $100,000, and plans are in the works to raise hundreds of thousands more. Even the most fervent supporters of the Rev. Nelson Baker acknowledge it’s an amount that probably would have made the humble servant of the needy uncomfortable. But such canonization expenses are not unusual in the Roman Catholic

Church, experts say, and are gaining new attention in the “poor church for the poor” envisioned by Pope Francis. Monsignor Paul Burkard is shepherding efforts to bank an additional $250,000 for anticipated ceremonies and other future expenses. He believes the outlays so far for lawyers, printing, research and travel has been well spent, even in a former steel city diocese that is closing struggling schools and churches. “I think Father Baker would probably be embarrassed that anybody would spend that much time or money to showcase him,” Burkard

said. “But in the long run, it actually helps the poor because more publicity about Father Baker means more people know about him and contribute to our charitable works here.” Burkard said the ongoing attention to Baker, who died in 1936 at 95, has already helped the social services agencies that continue to operate here in his name, drawing donations from all over the country and beyond. But canonization is an arduous, expensive process that has tended to favor larger religious orders that have the resources and know-how to navigate it. It’s something the Vatican

seems to be acknowledging with a new, undisclosed “reference” price, announced this month, which those officially guiding causes will have to abide by. Cardinal Angelo Amato, head of the Vatican’s saint-making office, said it is intended to inspire “a sense of simplicity and fairness.” “They’re trying to drop the price and trying to make it easier financially for different groups who support different saints to move their causes ahead,” said the Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit priest in New York City and author of My Life with the Saints. Baker was a Civil War veteran who

co-owned a feed and grain business before being ordained a priest in 1876. Embracing society’s neediest, he expanded his church’s charitable mission, improving its orphanages and opening a school, a home for unwed mothers and infants, and a hospital. The Congregation of the Causes of Saints approved the initiation of Baker’s cause in 1987, and in 2011, Pope Benedict XVI declared him venerable, the first step in a three-part process. The first of two miracles that must be attributed to Baker before he can be canonized is now undergoing a painstakingly thorough review.

Trinity: National Cancer Institute to conduct study Continued from Page A-1 tion site were included in the legislation, originally enacted in 1990 and known as the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act. Some ranchers, residents of nearby towns and members of the Mescalero Apache community have blamed the July 16, 1945, detonation of The Gadget, a 21-kiloton plutonium device — the same size and composition as the bomb dropped on Nagasaki, Japan, a few weeks later — for decades of illnesses and deaths. “We were unwilling, unknowing and uncompensated participants in the world’s largest science experiment,” Cordova said. The NCI study follows — and was prompted by — a recently concluded 10-year study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC had studied historical records on the release of radionuclides and other hazardous materials from the Los Alamos National Laboratory dating back to the beginning of the Manhattan Project in the early 1940s. A major part of the study was devoted to the detonation and radioac-

tive fallout from the Trinity device. Known as the Los Alamos Historical Document Retrieval and Assessment project, the study’s researchers concluded that “the local terrain and wind patterns caused ‘hot spots’ where higher amounts of radioactive materials settled. … Radiation levels near some homes were almost 10,000 times what is currently allowed in public areas.” The study also found that nearby residents were never warned before the blast nor informed of health hazards afterward, and that no one was evacuated before or after the detonation. The study also raised doubts about the validity of measurements taken at the time concerning the movement and makeup of the radioactive cloud and levels of radiation in the fallout because of the primitive nature of the instruments used to assess such factors and lack of effective communication among fallout monitoring teams. In a December 2010 letter to Department of Energy officials, Michael McGeehin, an Environmental Health Division director at the CDC, recommended that, because of the project’s findings, further studies be done con-

cerning health and safety issues stemming from the Trinity detonation. “In that report they specifically mentioned the need for this work,” Loukissas said of the CDC report. She added that the NCI researchers will be working with the same community groups and leaders as the CDC, including Las Mujeres Hablan — a Native American nuclear-watch group. She said the NCI will conduct the study using previously gathered information, dietary and lifestyle surveys of residents alive at the time of the detonation, as well as information from the New Mexico Tumor Registry, New Mexico’s universities and the Office of the State Historian. A major focus will be on the diets and lifestyles of people who were children at the time of the blast. “We are looking for men and women, probably more women than men, who can comment on the diet and lifestyle of the children they cared for,” Loukissas said. “They don’t have to be the mothers, necessarily. They could be the older siblings, they could be the cousins and aunts.” A summary of the planned NCI study notes that: “Of particular importance is

information on the consumption of cow, sheep and goat milk and fresh cheeses by those who were infants and children at the time of the test. Contaminated dairy products may be an important source of radiation exposure from fallout from the Trinity test — this pathway of contamination has been observed in other cases of nuclear fallout, such as the Chernobyl accident.” Radiation health physicist Steve Simon, the lead scientist on the project, has conducted similar radiation dose reconstruction projects in Kazakhstan (the site of Soviet nuclear tests) after the Chernobyl disaster, the Nevada nuclear test site detonations, the U.S. nuclear tests in the Marshall Islands and, most recently, the nuclear reactor crises in Fukushima, Japan. He also has experience in New Mexico, notably with The University of New Mexico and Los Alamos National Laboratory, where he served as a medical physicist for cancer treatments in clinical trials. Simon conceded that, in part because of the amount of time that has passed since the Trinity test, “I don’t think that there is anyone who could

go back and check everything that has been done since the beginning of the Manhattan Project. At some point, we have to rely on certain kinds of data.” He said a major source of information on Trinity radioactive fallout comes from a 1987 meteorological study of the initial Trinity data by the National Weather Service’s Las Vegas, Nev., office. “That report really forms the basis for my dose estimates,” Simon said. “Now what I need to know is where were the people and how were they living, and what were they eating and drinking?” Contact Dennis J.

Locally Grown Fruits & Vegetables Depend on a Local Water Supply

New Mexico’s high desert climate is perfect for food production such as chile and pecans that are susceptible to disease in more humid states, and onions and lettuce which thrive during our mild winters. All of these locally grown crops need water. Although farmers throughout the state have constitutionally granted water rights for irrigation, those rights are threatened by population growth. Since locally grown fruits and vegetables depend on a local water supply, we should all support farmers’ access to this vital resource.

Call your legislator and let them know you support farmers’ rights to irrigation water and that you’re Good to GROW. New Mexico Farm & Livestock Bureau is a 16,000 member organization comprised of farmers & ranchers, & those who are interested in private property rights & a local food supply.

Dry enough for a bill on fireworks?



Polling can balance big money


rofessor James Stacey Taylor’s article (“Poll numbers don’t always tell story,” Jan. 21) on minimum-wage polling shows a thoroughly conservative bias. Conservatives dislike popular polls now because the results discomfort them. Taylor says, “People are voting on issues on which they never should be voting at all.” Really? There’s plutocracy for you: Stop the polling. He implies that minimum-wage opinions are biased because they include people whose own wages are at stake. But public polls never require participants to recuse themselves because of personal interest, nor should they. Taylor holds that in economics there are “only trade-offs.” This enables him to assert, like other conservatives, that the trade-off for raising the minimum wage is fewer jobs. In reality, economic decisions often have consequences that are not traded for at all, like recessions. Opinion polling is one of the few counterweights to lobbying that ordinary Americans have in our deeply corrupted political system.

Inspiring words Thanks to The New Mexican for the extensive coverage of the NAACP’s Martin Luther King Jr. essay contest. Having been privileged to serve as a reader in the contest, I’m glad the public was able to see the inspirational words of the winners. Be assured that so many of the other 400 entries were also clearly heartfelt and beautifully expressed. And thanks to the teachers who saw this rich opportunity to combine writing, history and social education, and promoted it with their students. The results will likely not show up in student’ test scores; they go, rather, to the far more important question of how we show our children what is right. Clearly, teachers were quite willing to make that choice. Without NAACP’s interest in education, there would have been no such opportunity; without the enthusiasm of our public school teachers, that opportunity would have gone to waste. Kudos to all.

Compassionate choices Thank you for printing the front-page article on end-of-life choices (“Judge clears way for N.M. physicians to aid terminally ill patients in dying,” Jan. 14). As these public discussions continue, it is important that people with life-threatening illnesses are also given information about hospice care. Among the most widely held fears about dying are the fears of losing personal control and being in pain. Dying need not be painful, and not all pain is physical. With respect and compassion, the hospice team specializes in providing pain management as well as emotional and spiritual support for patients and their families. Hospice care is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and other insurances, and also includes bereavement support for 13 months after a loved one’s passing. Local hospice agencies are always available to provide more information about this enriching and compassionate service. Virginia Gilstrap

Food matters

The 2013 Farm Bill includes dangerous cuts to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. The house is asking for a $40 billion cut in SNAP funding over the next 10 years. According to doctors, this will cause spiked rates of diabetes and serious health risks for both children and adults. It also will increase health spending, as malnourished people are more likely to get sick and need medical care. Lack of nutrition also puts children at serious risk of failure in school, leading to dropout rates and lack of ability to get good jobs. SNAP is especially important to New Mexicans. At this time, 1 in 5 New Mexicans need SNAP (food stamps) to have enough to eat each month. When food stamps are cut, children also lose free lunch at school. These are not strangers, these are your neighbors their children, the elderly or disabled. Bottom line, cutting SNAP is unconscionable. Mimi Hatch

Win the war I want to thank The New Mexican for printing the editorial from Bloomberg View (“New war on poverty would complete job,” Jan. 11). It clearly states the economic benefits of federal programs that help those living in poverty through food stamps, earned tax credits and Head Start, not just to those who receive these benefits, but for the whole economy of our country. The War on Poverty, started by President Lyndon B. Johnson, is not over — 50 million people now live in poverty! There are those in Congress who would cut these programs, unconcerned about the dire effects this would have on our poor. In New Mexico, there are many families who struggle to provide food for their children, pay heating bills, provide child care while they work one or more jobs. We cannot accept cuts to these benefits! Let’s urge Congress to continue this War on Poverty, one that does so much good.

Thank you for printing the very important and educational article, (“Doctors say cutting food stamps could backfire,” Jan. 10).

ne type of bill that’s almost guaranteed to be a dud (caution, bad pun setup) in the New Mexico Legislature is legislation restricting fireworks. For instance, remember back in the hot dry summer of 2011, when the Las Conchas Fire was raging near Los Alamos, and Gov. Susana Martinez called for a bill that would give the governor the legal authority to impose a ban on all fireworks in the state? She got a bipartisan team of legislators to push such a bill, but it went down in flames (sorry, I can’t help myself). With what some believe could be another hot, dry summer ripe for forest fires in store, Martinez again is calling for a fireworks bill. She sent a message to the Steve Terrell Senate last week that allows the Legislature to consider it in the Roundhouse current 30-day “budget session.” Roundup The message applies to Senate Bill 94, sponsored by Sen. Phil Griego, D-San Jose, who helped derail the 2012 fireworks bill. When the fireworks bill failed two years ago, sponsor and then Sen. Dede Feldman, D-Albuquerque, said “Here’s an example of special interests and private gain trumping public health and safety.” And the governor expressed similar sentiments in a statement Wednesday, saying her office received “hundreds upon hundreds of phone calls from mayors, fire chiefs, community leaders and concerned citizens who were worried about the possibility of fireworks wreaking havoc in communities that had already faced wildfire threats.” (Political note: Those voting in committee to table the 2011 fireworks bill included Democrats and Republicans. But no Republican on the committee voted for the bill despite the Republican governor’s strong backing.) Why the change of heart for Griego, chairman of the Corporations and Transportation Committee, where the previous fireworks bill died? “We’ve got to do something this year,” Griego told me last week. “I’m afraid it’s going to be a horrendous summer.” Asked whether SB 94 is a compromise bill, Griego said, “It’s not really a compromise.” Referring to the Governor’s Office, he said, “This bill is really from the Fourth Floor.” In regard to potential opposition, Griego said, “The small fireworks [businesses] I think will be satisfied.” So, what has changed from the previous bill, which mom-and-pop (now that’s not supposed to be a pun) fireworks stands across the state said would drive them out of business? One Roswell-area fireworks business owner said in 2011 that if that year’s bill had been law, “I would only have been able to be open one year in the past eight years.” Like the previous bill, SB 94 would give the governor’s administration more power to ban fireworks during emergencies. But Griego said it would be harder to declare an emergency. Under the bill, city or county governments could request the Forestry Division of the state Department of Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources to adopt and enforce emergency rules within the municipality or county that ban or partially ban or restrict the sale or use of all fireworks within that city or county if “extreme fire danger” exists there. The Forestry Division would use the Southwest Coordination Center — an office consisting of personnel from several federal and state agencies — as the source of information for the national fire danger rating system. Under the previous bill, the National Weather Service would have been the source of information. The emergency rules, under SB 94, could not be in effect for more than 30 days. The governor would have to give written approval. The state would have to modify or rescind the rules within 24 hours if the conditions warranting the rules no longer exist. Griego said he expects the bill to be assigned to his Corporations & Transportation Committee, as well as the Conservation Committee. I asked Feldman, now a former senator, what she thought of Griego’s new bill. She said she hasn’t studied it in depth but it “looks good at first blush.” But she added, “I’ve been hoodwinked by them before.”

In Skandera’s case, she’s a virtual solar array. Last year, she received a first-class

Her detractors, who include large numbers of rank-and-file teachers and practically every leader in the state’s teachers unions, denounce her as a clueless bureaucrat and automaton for the educational reform measures of Republican Gov. Susana Martinez. Skandera’s defenders say she’s trying to turn around the state’s dismal record in public education (chronic finishes near the bottom of national ratings and dreadful dropout rates, both of which long preceded the Martinez administration) that justify shaking up a status quo they say reflexively opposes change. So the battle lines are drawn. But even if the Senate, controlled 25-17 by Democrats, votes “no” on a Skandera nomination, that does not mean that Skandera won’t keep running the Public Education Department. Yes, she cannot be secretary, but you can bet that Gov. Martinez won’t just say, “OK, I guess I’ll find somebody else.”

No, I bet Martinez — the daughter of a Golden Gloves boxer — will counterpunch by keeping the job vacant and simply give Skandera another title, such as deputy education secretary, and let her keep calling the shots. Yes, her critics might take some satisfaction in denying Skandera the title of “secretary,” but voters will be justified in wondering, was all that drama worth it? On the other hand, one topic that isn’t nearly as intriguing may figure to have much more importance in the 30-day session. Two House Democrats — Phillip Archuleta and Ernest Chavez — are out with illnesses, and they might miss sizeable chunks, if not all, of the session. Since Democrats hold a slim 37-33 lead in the House, the loss of two state reps is crucial. Unless they return, Republicans will have a majority in three committees, something the GOP is hardly accustomed to since Demo-

crats have held the majority in the House since 1953. What may prove more significant is that the more liberal wing of Roundhouse Democrats is introducing constitutional amendments to raise the minimum wage, bring back the state board of education (to weaken Skandera) and to dip into the Land Grant Permanent Fund to pay for early learning programs for preschoolers. Those amendment proposals don’t have to be signed by the governor; if they pass the House and the Senate, they go straight to voters in November, cutting Martinez out. Republicans are aligned against those amendments, which should have a fighting chance of getting through the Senate. Which reminds me: There’s an amendment to legalize marijuana, too.

Lamy no place for oil tankers


he Santa Fe area is known for its abundance of notin-my-backyard reactions — whether neighbors don’t want affordable housing next door or oil wells down the street. We have to guard against knee-jerk reactions while, at the same time, recognizing danger when a proposed activity really is not suitable. The proposal to truck crude oil from the Four Corners area to be loaded on rail cars in Lamy is being met with overwhelming resistance by nearby residents. At first glance, could this be more NIMBY-ism? Or are residents rightly pointing out that the village atmosphere is hardly the place the rumble of big oil trucks through town? (Not to mention the concerns over oil spills, given that the offloading site for the oil is just 109 feet from the town well.) Even without worries over water contamination, a drive to Lamy shows that it makes little sense to bring heavy trucks along a two-lane road through a small village. Once a driver turns off U.S. 285 to take the meandering road to Lamy, there are no longer asphalt shoulders. The first portion of the road, just after the highway, isn’t even maintained by Santa Fe County, according to signs. Lacking adequate shoulders and with several steep curves and drop-offs, the road isn’t built to handle oil tanker traffic. It’s that simple. We believe Sen. Peter Wirth has the right idea. Sit down with the corporate players and find another site — preferably one away from people and water — where the oil can be loaded. The proposal to truck in the oil is being made by Pacer Energy Marketing of Oklahoma. Right now, the company off-loads its crude in Thoreau, a small town near Gallup. Burlington Northern Santa Fe owns the terminal currently being used by Pacer; it says there is not another available location. The oil is trucked from the fields and then loaded onto cars for shipment to refineries south of Albuquerque. Despite being out of the way, Lamy has become the potential alternative for the energy company. The loading site is owned by the Santa Fe Southern Railway (the same company that once ran scenic trains from Santa Fe to Lamy on track it owns). Pacer would use Lamy as a backup to its Thoreau site and bring from six to eight trucks a day to unload. The inadequacy of the two-lane road to the village is not our only concern. People in Santa Fe should pay attention as well, and find out just how the oil tankers would reach Lamy — along Interstate 25 only or along N.M. 599, or could they end up going through town? The overwhelming opposition to the transportation of crude oil through Lamy is not another case of not-inmy-backyard. These are solid concerns about a necessary activity, but one that does not belong in a small village. Channeled correctly, though, we see a business opportunity — not in Lamy, but somewhere along the train line. The state of New Mexico should see whether there’s an investment opportunity to build a terminal alongside the tracks that it already owns — the oil boom may fade eventually, but that won’t happen anytime soon. It makes sense to ensure that businesses can haul goods safely. Rail shipments are booming right now, growing from 10,840 in 2009 to an estimated 400,000 in 2013, partly in response to increased oil production. It would seem that helping the oil industry transport its product — safely and smartly — is the right thing to do. (One reason that Amtrak hopes to keep using its northern route into New Mexico on the Southwest Chief, with its stop in Lamy, is that the line is not as clogged with freight trains as other lines through New Mexico.) What’s more, with Santa Fe Southern tourist trains no longer running, it’s understandable that its operators want to make money by leasing property. A scenic train operation is the kind of business that the tourism sector should support; Santa Fe is more fun for visitors if there is an old-fashioned train ride from downtown. How can it be revived, so that owners can make a profit without renting to energy companies? Like so many things, the issue of crude oil in a small town has many layers. Most urgently, townspeople and neighboring residents should keep talking to Pacer Energy — the company seems like a decent corporate citizen. Find another, better location so that Pacer can do its business and residents can be left in peace. The winding road is attractive to those who choose to live in rural solitude. But it is clearly not built to handle heavy traffic, including trucks full of oil. That’s not NIMBY-ism. That’s common sense.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Jan. 26, 1914: E.D. Osborne, the well-known tomato canner south of the city, unearthed this week a bunch of smoky topaz and turquoise, and from the same locality he dug up about five dozen highly decorated Indian bows and under each bow there was a human skull, evidently that of an Indian. There was no particular mound or other evidence of burial except the fact that these articles were all unearthed in the same locality. There was also found in the same locality considerable broken pottery and a number of very small fine arrow heads and ornaments formerly used by the Indians.


Security damages Olympic dream


ussia’s efforts to ensure security at the Winter Olympics in Sochi are threatening to turn a celebration of sport into a grueling experience for all involved. Security has been a special concern since July 2013, when Doku Umarov, a Chechen separatist field commander who now calls himself the Emir of the Caucasus, called on the “mujahideen” to “prevent the Olympic revelries upon the bones of Caucasus people killed by Russians.” In his final big interview before the opening ceremony, Russian President Vladimir Putin promised that the most expensive sporting event in world history would not see a repeat of the horrors of Munich in 1972. “If we allow ourselves to show weakness, to show fear, we will aid those terrorists in reaching their goals,” Putin said, adding that the authorities would make sure security measures would not be “excessive, too obvious” or “put pressure on competition participants and guests.” So far, though, the security measures have been obvious and oppressive — and the athletes and guests have yet to arrive. Residents of Sochi have endured emergency evacuations of the new railway station in Adler. Rail commuters must get special permission to transport liquids, laser and high-frequency devices, bicycles, tools and winter sports equipment. Since Jan. 7, out-of-town cars have been banned from entering the Sochi area and required to park in special lots at least 60 miles from the city center. Nikolai Yarst, a reporter for the site in the Ural Mountains city of Yekaterinburg, visited checkpoints at the city limits and found long lines of cars with Sochi plates awaiting a painstaking examination by police.

Rallies and demonstrations require permission from local authorities and security officials (which means a de facto ban). Local stores and restaurants have been forced to sign a document binding them to take deliveries only at night and to stock up enough supplies to last until March 22. According to a report on a popular local forum,, transport disruptions and security barriers are forcing local businesses to lay off workers or simply wind down until the games end. By presidential decree, Russians arriving in Sochi between now and Feb. 14 must register in person with the local authorities within three days of arrival unless they stay at a hotel. Police have been conducting blanket ID checks on the streets to catch violators. According to lawyer Kaloi Akhilgov, residents of the unstable Caucasus regions Ingushetia, Dagestan and Chechnya are being discouraged from visiting at all. As of Jan. 13, the FSB security service was searching in Sochi for a Dagestani woman named Ruzanna Ibragimova, a separatist fighter’s widow suspected of plotting a suicide bombing. “Be prepared,” Yarst wrote on “At any moment a person in uniform may approach you and forbid something.” Putin said in his interview that 40,000 police and troops had been detailed to ensure security in Sochi. According to some reports, they are themselves treated as if they are a risk. The St. Petersburg news site reported that cops from Russia’s second city, sent to Sochi for the Olympics, were living in sealedoff barracks without access to the city, men and women strictly separated and forbidden to drink alcohol. Two officers

were recently detained after escaping the encampment to go home. Volunteers and hired service personnel complain about poor living conditions and extra-tight security. They are not allowed to bring any food, even fruit or chocolates, into the Olympic park, and the fare served on site is woefully inadequate. The workers are given food coupons that were printed during the shortages of the late 1980s to trade for meals at the canteen. Their complaints are invariably anonymous because they have been warned not to post anything negative about the Olympic preparations on social networks. Frequent posts describe Sochi as “a concentration camp.” They complain about the security excesses, ridiculous “aesthetic” bans such as one on hanging laundry on balconies, and the pre-Olympic elimination of stray animals, which activists are attempting to rescue. The measures are akin to those taken when Moscow hosted the Summer Olympics in 1980. Ramzan Kadyrov, the strongman who runs Chechnya for Putin, declared recently that Doku Umarov was dead. But he has not produced a body, so the “emir” may well be plotting a strike on Sochi from some mountain hideaway. Even if he is gone, Putin’s Russia has ample enemies to justify paranoia. The stakes are high: An attack on Putin’s games could forever undermine his prestige. That is the best guarantee for Sochi visitors and locals that the Olympics will not be a replay of Munich — and that the security arrangements will hardly be invisible.

Wendy Davis: The devil’s in the details WASHINGTON n politics, lying is the new sex. Even the lesser sin, exaggeration, is grounds for questions about your suitability to run for office. Americans may be becoming more like the French in tolerating peccadilloes (just ask Rep. Mark Sanford of South Carolina or Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana about surviving a sex scandal), but get a detail wrong about whether you divorced at 21 or 19, and woe unto you. That’s what happened to Wendy Davis over the weekend. You may know her as the Texas state senator in pink sneakers who delivered an 11-hour filibuster against abortion restrictions in June. The onetime teenage single mother who lived in a trailer park and graduated from Harvard Law School was so well-spoken, impassioned and appealing that she is running for governor less than a year later. But now she’s being Swift-boated. The story of the courageous, articulate and inspiring lawyer has become the tale of a fabulist who can’t be trusted after the Dallas Morning News raised a swirl of questions about her personal history, some provided by her ex-husband. She says the allegations came from her would-be Republican opponent in the gubernatorial race, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott. The attacks won’t work, she says, “because my story is the story of millions of Texas women who know the strength it takes when you’re young, alone and a mother.” Nonetheless, Republicans fact-checked her life story and found the timeline wanting. Davis herself acknowledged that “my language should be tighter” when it comes to the details of her biography and promised to be “more focused on the detail.” I may be soft on anyone who takes a good story and makes it better.

There’s something at work here where men get to boast and women are supposed to be modest and sweat the details. in an Irish family where Sunday dinner would have been no more than well-done roast beef and mashed potatoes had it not been for uncles outdoing one another about the size of the fish they’d caught and the poker pot they’d won. And what is journalism but organizing facts into a compelling narrative. Davis has the bad luck to have a second ex-husband giving his side of the ragsto-riches story (he says he supplied the riches). Yes, she and her daughter lived in a mobile home, but only for a few months before moving into an apartment, and she worked two jobs. Enter the second husband, an older lawyer with whom she had a second daughter. They divorced in 2005 but not before, he says, he paid for her last two years at Texas Christian University and for Harvard Law, and kept her two daughters while she was there. Davis said that she and her husband cashed in a 401(k) and took out loans to pay for her tuition and that she split time between Massachusetts and Texas. When they divorced, he asked for and got custody of the two girls, and Davis was doing well enough by then to pay child support. Did Davis “cavalierly deceive voters” with a “fanciful narrative,” as Abbott’s spokesman, Matt Hirsch, said, or is there a truthiness to her telling of her life 30

years ago? The elements of working her way up from hardscrabble beginnings are as she’s described them. Davis already faces an uphill climb in a state that hasn’t elected a Democrat statewide since 1994. Women have a hard time in Texas. When former Gov. Ann Richards ran in 1990, it was no barbecue. She was accused of using cocaine and being an alcoholic, albeit a recovering one. At a debate, her Republican opponent, Clayton Williams, refused to shake her hand. At one point in the campaign, he expressed the hope that she wouldn’t “go back to drinking again.” An oil and gas wildcatter, he outspent Richards 2-to-1, but lost after a joke about rape that went too far, even by Wild West standards: “If it’s inevitable, just relax and enjoy it.” There’s something at work here where men get to boast and women are supposed to be modest and sweat the details. Look at Mayor Dawn Zimmer of Hoboken, N.J. If she gets a single fact wrong about her allegation that Gov. Chris Christie’s administration threatened to stiff her city on Hurricane Sandy recovery funds, she’ll be toast, and Christie will remain the self-proclaimed hero of the coast. I don’t agree with Davis on the filibuster that made her famous. Abortions should be illegal after viability, which is coming earlier and earlier as neonatal care improves. But I do agree with her on the arc of her life. She started out dirt poor and rose through pluck and luck (though that ex-husband is a mixed bag) to make a huge deal of herself. Nothing that happened recently takes away from that. But still, it’s too bad for her she didn’t run off to Argentina with a polo player, or two. Then she’d be ahead in the polls.

BREAKING NEWS AT www.SaNtafeNewmexIcaN.cOm


If all is historic, nothing is historic


ith all due respect, those opposing the replacement of the Defouri Street bridge with a code-compliant structure are exhibiting the worst of selfish NIMBY-ism. The purpose of a traffic bridge is to safely move traffic and to ensure the safety of pedestrians, runners, bikers, strollers, etc. I drive by that bridge twice every day, cross it several times a month and run across the sidewalk there 12 to 15 times a month. The residents of the Santa Fe Pueblo didn’t build the Defouri bridge 500 years ago. The Spanish conquistadors didn’t build it 400 years ago. The U.S. Cavalry didn’t build it 170 years ago. It was completed only 54 years ago. Apparently, it is now in unsafe condition. If it needs to be replaced, then traffic safety is the only proper concern of the designers. The bridge is far too narrow, both corner radii are too sharp, and traffic visibility is blocked by a huge cottonwood. I’ve witnessed many near-misses because of the flaws as well as traffic being impeded. Here are just some of the problems caused by the flawed design. Because the bridge is too narrow, a vehicle on Defouri Street waiting to make a left or right turn onto West Alameda or cross Alameda blocks vehicles on Alameda attempting to turn onto Defouri. I’ve witnessed many near rearenders when vehicles start their turn, only for drivers to realize they would hit the vehicle on Defouri. So they have to wait until the vehicle on Defouri can actually turn onto Alameda. Vehicles on Defouri waiting to make a left turn onto Alameda must be able to see traffic both ways in order to safely make their turn. However, if the vehicle stops at the “stop line” (yes, there is a “stop line” before the “crosswalk,” whether it is visible or not) and looks right, all they see is cottonwood trunk. To actually see traffic coming west on Alameda, a vehicle has to cross the stop line, cross the crosswalk, and actually almost block eastbound traffic before they can see past the tree in order to safely make their turn. And since the tree is blocking visibility of the sidewalk, too, many times I’ve seen pedestrians almost hit as the vehicle moves forward trying to see around the tree. Additionally, if a vehicle on Defouri is waiting to make a right-hand turn and stays close to the curb, so as not to block those attempting to turn onto Defouri, the sharpness of the east corner (it is sharper than 90 degrees) causes them to make their right turn by actually going out into the westbound turn lane, where another vehicle may be attempting its own left turn onto Defouri. Many vehicles avoid this problem by driving in the middle of the bridge, thereby completely blocking Defouri to traffic from Alameda. Everything older than yesterday is not historical. By claiming that a derelict, unsafe 54-year-old bridge is history worth preserving cheapens real history. Are these residents saying their quaint perception of their neighborhood is more important than the lives and health of those simply trying to go about their day? (While residents agree the bridge needs to be replaced, they don’t seem willing to support a bridge that will help move both pedestrian and vehicle traffic.) And anyone supposedly serving the people of Santa Fe who says, “I don’t care what the code is,” is unfit for that position. Steve Gigliotti is a former history teacher.

Reality drives school funding change


onsidered a model for the equitable distribution of school funding when implemented 40 years ago, New Mexico’s state equalization guarantee still does a pretty good job of ensuring every public school student has equal access to services appropriate to the student’s educational needs. But pretty good is not good enough. Over the past eight years, three different studies have concluded the New Mexico formula — an enrollmentdriven calculation with weighted factors for school and district size, students’ special needs and other factors — needs to be replaced or revised. Of greatest concern, the three studies by the American Institutes of Research, Syracuse University and the Legislative Finance and Education Study committees noted the formula does not cover the extra cost of educating the children most at risk of failing, directly contributing to the achievement gap. In addition, over the last few years, it has become routine for very small districts to seek emergency funding, a sign the formula is clearly not providing enough for these districts. Providing this emergency funding both distorts the purpose of the funding formula and removes any accountability

that comes with the standard distribution of education dollars. Legislators during the 2014 session will have the opportunity to address both of these pressing issues through consideration of separate bills we are sponsoring: one that increases funding for the at-risk factor and one that creates a factor for very small districts. Both contain provisions that attempt to ensure the money is spent effectively. It’s common knowledge that New Mexico tends to be at the bottom of rankings of public education success. Less well known is that the biggest predictor of a New Mexico student’s success is whether the student is classified as “at risk,” identified primarily by income and English-language proficiency. While most New Mexico thirdgraders without income and language barriers are proficient in reading — about 65 percent to 80 percent depending on ethnicity — the proficiency rate among students with the same racial backgrounds drops dramatically when those students live in poverty and are learning English. For Hispanics, about a quarter of low-income English-language learners are proficient, while the proficiency rate jumps to more than 70

percent for those without those issues. While studies show adequately teaching an at-risk student costs up to 50 percent more than a less-needy student, New Mexico provides just a 9 percent supplement for at-risk students and is near the bottom in its incremental funding for these students. Of the some $2.4 billion that will be distributed this year through the formula, just $70 million is intended to address the needs of at-risk students. It should be no surprise, then, that we are also near the bottom on student performance. We cannot expect to build better schools or a better future for our state until we address that achievement gap. Similarly, the very small districts, those with fewer than 200 students, need dependable funding for the inefficiencies of running rural districts with small populations. While districts with fewer than 4,000 students already get extra funding, the factor is obviously inadequate for these very small districts, which must struggle every year with the uncertainty of too little money to pay all their bills. Importantly, both bills we have introduced would hold the districts accountable for making the best use of the dollars. House Bill 35, sponsored by Rep.


Hall, would provide $5.6 million for very small districts but would require that they participate in buying cooperatives and otherwise do their part to be efficient. House Bill 19, sponsored by Rep. Varela, would provide $20 million for a 15 percent increase in at-risk funding and would require schools to report how they use the extra at-risk funding to close the achievement gap. Over the last 10 years, the Legislature has increased total spending on public schools by more than 42 percent — an increase equal to three-quarters of a billion dollars. But our school’s performance on many measures has increased only slightly or remained flat. We need to do everything we can to ensure future increases count. These bills will do that. Luciano “Lucky” Varela, a retired state employee, is chairman of the Legislative Finance Committee and deputy chairman of the House Appropriations and Finance Committee. Jimmie C. Hall, first elected to District 28 in Bernalillo County in 2004, has more than 25 years of experience in agriculture in financial management and planning and is currently the executive director of the 4H Development Foundation and Ranch and Farm Operations.


Pope must act on child abuse W

hile it is laudable that Pope Francis takes interest in the well-being of children by encouraging their mothers to breast-feed in public (Our View, “Pope Francis: Feed the Babies,” Jan. 19), The Santa Fe New Mexican, like many other publications, has bought into the Vatican’s marketing hype promoting the words of Pope Francis. They neglect to hold him accountable for the actions of Roman Catholic priests, bishops and archbishops who have sexually abused children or who have facilitated these priests’ crimes and protected them from the law. For many years, the hierarchy of the Catholic Church has chosen to ignore the fact that their priests have been molesting children, and even worse, shuffled suspected pedophile priests from parish to parish, allowing them to prey on yet a new group of unsuspecting children. Once the first clergy sexual abuse case was brought to the light of the law in the United States in 1985, Pope Francis and his papal predecessors have continually done everything in their substantial power to prevent the legal system from bringing these priests to justice. Just a few examples: u Parishes throughout the world keep secret files on pedophile priests, along with details of their actions, yet the parishes refuse to release the files until such time that a court forces them to do so. So far, the church has agreed to release only a handful of secret files; the courtforced release of documents from the Archdiocese of Chicago reveal that the archdiocese knowingly hid decades of child sex abuse by its priests. Meanwhile, Pope Francis has done nothing to require the church to release these secret documents to the public. u Just last week in Geneva, the pope’s high-level representatives refused to turn over data on priest abuse cases to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child. u Even though it is welldocumented that bishops, archbishops and cardinals have protected abusing priests in their charge and covered up their

criminal behavior, the pope has failed to remove a single one from his post as punishment. Last summer, Pope Francis recalled his ambassador to the Dominican Republic, Apostolic Nuncio Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski, amid allegations of his sexual abuse of teenage boys in the Dominican Republic and in Wesolowski’s native Poland. After initially agreeing to cooperate with authorities, Pope Francis took the unprecedented action of granting Vatican citizenship to Wesolowski, a lifelong Polish citizen, so he could not be extradited to Poland to face sex-abuse charges filed by prosecutors there. Some would point to the recent claim by the Vatican, reported in The Santa Fe New Mexican, that in 2011 and 2012 (under the reign of Pope Francis’s predecessor) the Vatican defrocked 400 priests for sexually abusing children. However, this is a global number; in the United States alone there are credible claims of child abuse by 6,905 priests, including 276 in just one archdiocese, Boston. So 400 is but a spit in the Holy See when one looks at the worldwide magnitude of Catholic clergy child sexual abuse. What is Pope Francis’s response to this sexual abuse crisis, the greatest challenge that the church has faced in 500 years? He formed a committee to study the problem. Until Pope Francis directs his parishes to release of all secret files related to clergy sexual abuse, removes bishops, archbishops and cardinals who have been complicit in the coverup of these crimes and turns over the fugitive Archbishop Wesolowski that the Pope is harboring in the Vatican to the authorities to face justice, it will continue to be clear that Pope Francis is more interested in preserving the power, prestige and treasury of the church than actually protecting the lives of innocent children. It is said that actions speak louder than words. Pope Francis, we have heard your words; now we await your action. Robert Kiely writes from Santa Fe.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.: A true civil rights leader M artin Luther King Jr. was born on Jan. 15, 1929. His original name was Michael, named after his father. His father changed both of their names to Martin when he was 4 years old. He grew up in Atlanta. His dad was a pastor of a church, and his mother was a teacher. He had an older sister and a younger brother. This essay is going to be about what I know about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and why he is a true civil rights leader. Martin grew up in a time when black people were treated differently

from white people. Black people went to different schools, they lived in different parts of town, and they were separated from white people in public places. When black people were Jaxen Bujold separated from white people, this was called segregation. When black people were treated differently because of the color of their skin, this

was called racism. Martin learned about racism early in his life after a white family did not want their son playing with Martin. Martin was so smart that he graduated two years early from high school at the age of 15. He went to a college in Atlanta where all the students and teachers were black. During the summer, he would go to Connecticut to work in the tobacco fields. This was the first time Martin had been to the North, and saw that black people were allowed to attend the same schools, eat

in the same restaurants and shop in the same stores as white people. After graduating from college, Martin went to Boston University, where he got his doctorate and became known as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He met his wife, Coretta Scott, at Boston University, and they were married on June 18, 1953. He started to think about nonviolent ways to change laws on how black people were treated. Martin led a boycott against the bus company, and black people stopped using the city buses. The boycott lasted more

One man’s dream still matters have a dream …” How many times have you heard those famous words? Who is the first person you think of when you hear them, and what do they really mean to you? Just look around you right now and notice your culture isn’t the only one you see. Also notice that that was a result of one man and his famous speech. A speech that has changed lives and touched the hearts of people all over America the day he spoke those words. Your life might not even be the way it is right now if Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. hadn’t brought those famous words to life. How many of you have friends that are so important to you, you just might do anything for them? Do your friends have the same cultural background as you do? My friends are not all the same race as I am, but I like them all equally, just like a true friend should. To me, the most important reason I am friends and care for them all equally is because it doesn’t matter where they are from, the way they talk or what color their skin is. I’m thankful that my friends and I are all able to ride the same bus and go to the same school, because I really don’t meet my friends anywhere else. Don’t you just like going places with your friends? Like going over to play or watch a football game, or do girly things and go to the mall? I love going places with my friends or just getting to hang out with them. So I’m thankful, because people would get judged for going places, doing things or even just being friends with the “wrong color” of people. Also, those people who were the socalled “wrong color” didn’t get treated with equal respect, either. These people weren’t even allowed to vote, and not getting a say in who rules you or your country is just cruel and unfair. For that right, I’m grateful, and I won’t take for granted the chance to vote. Most people aren’t happy about the way their lives turned out. Not me. I’m just fine with the way my life turned out, because who knows, without King and his eye-opening speech, my life could have turned out to be horrible. I’m happy that I get to go to school with students of different cultures. I’m also happy to know that when I go to school, my friends and I get the same education as everybody else, because, on the inside, we’re all equal. I’m happy that my friends and I can ride the bus and not have to give up our seats because

2014: The year for the people?


ducators luckily get two New Year’s Days every year to begin anew: The first day of school and Jan. 1, like the rest of the world. Each New Year’s abounds with hope and possibilities, but the months following this August’s New Year, maybe more than ever, were very difficult for Santa Fe Public Schools staff. We were challenged, tested, tweaked and battered by often useless or damaging federal, state, and local policies, regulations, limitations and attitudes. Yet every day, regardless of the previous day’s roadblocks, we walked into our schools with the endless motivation born of the knowledge that always, consciously and not, we make a lifechanging difference in children’s lives. And while those who hold the policy- and purse-strings frequently parrot the “children are our future” mantra, New Mexico’s miserable well-child statistics belie a lack of true commitment to making sure our children, and of course the schools that are our children’s foundations, are adequately fortified. This new year, I have decided

This new year, I have decided that New Mexico’s negative progression ends; we must only move upward. that New Mexico’s negative progression ends; we must only move upward. Yes, the challenges remain, but I think something important in America’s mindset is changing. I think we are beginning to realize something crucial about our country’s stability: Regardless of the billions of corporate dollars poured into our U.S. Congress, state Legislature and, to a smaller degree, our local elections, we the people truly wield the power if we take it. Among recent news stories, I am noticing a trend of socially positive acts, usually championed by leaders of humble beginnings who understand that the stability of “the masses” either sustains or destroys institutions. As president of NEA-Santa Fe, I am constantly concerned for thousands of our public schools staff and students. Though our first semester discouraged many, I think this

new year can be a good one. What evidence do I have that this is possible? My observation of progressive national trends helps, but something very hopeful happened with the public schools just before winter break that many didn’t notice: The school board unanimously approved going forward with a resolution presented by board Vice President Steven Carrillo. “Ode to joy — reshaping the culture and climate in our public schools” proposes to change conditions within the district to better support staff and students in sustaining the joy of lifelong learning. Importantly, it shows that our elected officials are really listening to the many public and private concerns shared with them. The resolution directs that staff and administration, especially teachers dealing with so many new tests and mandates,

must focus on what is really good for children and be allowed to do the job within fair and realistic time parameters. It highlights the need to determine and change conditions that have caused this year’s epidemic of teacher and other staff resignations, to alleviate the economic and social stresses of living and working in Santa Fe, and it clearly instructs the “Superintendent and Cabinet [to] make every reasonable effort to remove the pressures these mandates impose by allowing our principals and teachers the freedom to achieve the academic goals of our district and of each student and by trusting our teaching professionals.” In short, to respect staff as human beings and as professionals. NEA-SF is, as always, eager and completely committed to working together on muchneeded district and state-level changes. 2014 can be a great year — a year for the people! Bernice García Baca is the president of the National Education Association-Santa Fe and a counselor at Aspen Community School.


Standing in solidarity with the Chiricahua


read the commentary in The Santa Fe New Mexican (“Chiricahua Apaches belong in New Mexico,” Jan. 12) by Jeff Haozous, chairman of the Fort Sill Apache Tribe. I felt the need to respond. My name is Manu Rainbird. I am from Santa Ana Pueblo (Tamaya), and an elder member of the New Mexico Indian Council on Aging. In this day, it is possible to be proud of our ancestors’ sacrifices, determination and resolve. It goes without saying that the Chiricahua Apaches are fulfilling the wishes of Apache ancestors and today’s elders with the values guiding them spiritually to return to New Mexico. Like all Indian people, our core values revolve around this sacred land. To us, land and people are inseparable. It doesn’t matter what language we speak or what tribal affiliations we are. We are all related. Today, I stand on sacred ground. Sharing this sacred land in New Mexico are the Keres,

Tiwa, Tewa, Walatowa, Zuni, Jicarilla, Mescalero Apaches and the Navajo Nation. Long before any European colonization, the Chiricahua Apaches also were here in New Mexico. As Indian people, we have governed ourselves as sovereign Indian nations. In this spirit of goodwill, I, Manu Rainbird, elder of the Pueblo of Santa Ana, stand in solidarity with the Chiricahua Apaches’ wish to return to New Mexico. The opinions expressed in this commentary do not represent the Santa Ana Tribal Council or the All Pueblo Council of Governors. The Federal Indian Civil Rights Act of 1968 states: “No Indian Tribe, exercising powers of self-government, shall make or abridge the freedom of speech or the press.” Today, I, exercise my First Amendment Right to free speech. Manu Rainbird is an elder member of the New Mexico Indian Council on Aging.

Texting ban will make the road safer


ver the past several years, driving distractions caused by mobile devices have been a hot topic here in New Mexico and across the nation. Study after study has confirmed that distracted driving has the potential to worsen driving performance, making the streets a little less safe for all motorists. As an insurance agent, I know firsthand what Jalene Berger dangers can lurk for new and experienced drivers alike. Yet, for the past four years, legislation that would ban texting and driving has died on the vine in our state Legislature. A recent article that appeared in The New Mexican (“Texting ban bill resurfaces,” Jan. 6) highlighted the latest effort: Senate Bill 19, prefiled by Sen. Peter Wirth. Kudos to the senator for bringing this public safety effort back to the table. And many thanks to Gov. Susana Martinez for approving the bill for consideration. We should all join together to support this new effort to ban texting and driving. This behavior can increase a driver’s risk of crashing by 23 times, and sending just one text while driving is like having four beers or holding a .08 blood alcohol limit. Why wouldn’t we act to change this? There is mounting evidence that tells us it’s time to prohibit texting and driving in all 50 states. As noted in the article, we live in one of only nine states without an anti-texting and driving law on the books. Let’s urge our local lawmakers to strike New Mexico from that list. Jalene Berger is an Allstate agent and mom residing in Rio Rancho.


Staying on track: College has bright future I n a community where several hundred nonprofit organizations thrive, opportunity abounds for Santa Feans who feel a calling to public service. You can volunteer on a board or choose to run for office as a way to give back. Last year, I was fortunate to earn the trust of voters and win a seat on the governing board of Santa Fe Community College. I am honored to be part of a dedicated board that takes seriously its responsibility to provide stewardship for the institution. Lately, there have been questions about how that stewardship works. One of the primary duties of the governing board of Santa Fe Community College is fiduciary responsibility, defined as a legal or ethical relationship of trust. As a board, members have a duty to the students and taxpayers of our community to drill down to the essential processes of the institution, look at financial controls and

fiscal management operations, examine return on investment and ensure business decisions are the best they can be. Each year at this time, college financial staff, in consultation with program leaders and others from across the campus, formulate a budget for the next year. During the recession, SFCC leaders implemented prudent strategies to reduce costs, reallocate existing budgets and focus on building revenue sources. Colleges and other organizations around New Mexico were announcing staff furloughs and slashing budgets, but thanks to judicious management at SFCC, these types of actions weren’t necessary. In fact, as a testament to the college’s overall fiscal health, in the fall of 2010, Moody’s Investment Service raised the college’s bond rating from Aa2 to Aa1, which means an outside finance firm has very strong confidence in the college’s capacity to meet its financial commitments.

The Institute of American Indian Arts is seeking comments from the public about the college in preparation for its periodic evaluation by its regional accrediting agency. The Institute will host a visit March 24-26, 2014, with a team representing the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association. IAIA has been accredited by the Commission since 1984. The team will review the institution’s ongoing ability to meet the Commission’s Criteria for Accreditation. The public is invited to submit comments regarding the college: Third Party Comment on Institute of American Indian Arts The Higher Learning Commission 230 South LaSalle Street, Suite 7-500 Chicago, IL 60604-1411 The public may also submit comments on the Commission’s Web site at Comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of the institution or its academic programs. Comments must be in writing.

Over the next two months, a broad budgeting process will take place on campus. Ideas and initiatives to fertilize goals connected to the college’s strategic plan will come forward. Plan goals, including improving successful course completion, retention and graduation, will be part of the budget development, as will increasing campus sustainability practices, meeting or exceeding internal and external standards, and retaining fiscal vitality. Providing checks and balances is a principal duty of the board. Beyond approving the annual budget, the board also approves the regular, yearly audit. Following our approval of the regular third-party audit, the Office of the State Auditor reviews the findings and the

document is released to the public. The college anticipates a positive response when the state auditor releases this year’s regular audit, which the college submitted in November. But regardless of the outcome of this year’s audit, the state auditor may choose to perform a special audit at any time. If additional investigation is needed, SFCC will fully comply and immediately work to address any findings. The future for the college will be one of continued growth and change. The Higher Education Center, supported by voters back in 2010, is finally underway. Affordable, accessible four-year degrees will soon be delivered in a conveniently located new facility

Kathy Keith was elected to the Santa Fe Community College board in 2013. She is the executive director of the Regional Development Corporation.

Broadway tap teacher helps NDI dancers find their groove on stage By Uriel J. Garcia The New Mexican


early 70 kids are lined up in rows of six; an instructor leads them all in a dance across the studio. They repeat the routine several times, and each time, they add one more step, taught by Germaine Salsberg, a New York City-based tapdancer and professional choreographer. The kids, ranging in age from 12 to 14, then break into groups and take the stage to practice their opening routines for a tap-dance number. Max Manzanares leads the first group while he signs the lyrics to a Broadway song titled “Fabulous Feet.” “She’s very dynamic,” Max, 13, says of Salsberg during a quick break from the Saturday practice at the National Dance Institute of New Mexico’s Dance Barns. “And she’s very dead-set on getting the dance together.” Salsberg teaches at New York’s Broadway Dance Center and Steps Studio. She said she usually teaches college-level students and

The dance also is part of a show titled Broadway Bound!, featuring about 1,000 public school students in Santa Fe, that will run from May 1 through May 10. “She’s so inspiring. She brings something special that we don’t have in our backyard, which is her expertise,” said Russell Baker, executive director of the dance institute. “We’re just excited that she’s here because we get to learn so much from her.” Baker personally invited Salsberg to choreograph the dance, he said. The students working with her are NDI veterans who have been with the institute since their elementary school years. Salsberg said she’s visited Santa Fe in the past and immediately agreed to teach the class after Baker invited her. But she and the students had only five dance rehearsals together. Saturday was their last rehearsal, and now it will be up to NDI’s instructors to continue

The account’s followers include Sen. Lisa Torraco and the state Democratic Party. Balderas says Twitter informed him the account cannot be removed because it describes itself as a parody. He says he doesn’t know who’s behind it. Balderas doesn’t think the account will affect his campaign for attorney general.

has been extradited back to the state. The U.S. Marshals Service announced that Edward Salas was taken back Saturday to Curry County to serve his sentence for the murder of a 10-yearold Clovis boy. Salas, who was on the agency’s most wanted list, was arrested by Mexican authorities in October 2012. Salas escaped from Curry County Detention Center in Clovis in August 2008 with seven other inmates. He was serving a life sentence and 56 years for his role in the 2005 killing of Carlos Perez, who was shot in the head while sleeping. Prosecutors say Salas became an assassin for the Zetas cartel in Mexico. The Associated Press

City officials are reconsidering a provision of the ordinance banning single-use plastic bags that’s scheduled to take effect next month. The ordinance requires retailers to charge customers 10 cents for a paper bag, as part of the effort to encourage shoppers to shift to reusable cloth bags. But the new city attorney believes the fee might be an illegal tax. A bill to amend the ordinance and drop the 10-cent charge is scheduled for a vote by the City Council on Feb. 26, a day before the ban goes into effect. The issue of making retailers charge for paper bags has arisen in other states, notably in Los Angeles County, Calif. In that case, an appeals court ruled that because the retailer was allowed to keep the 10 cents for each paper bag, no revenue was created for the county government, and the charge was not an illegal tax. In Santa Fe, the 10-cent fee also would stay with the retailer, who could use it to help offset the cost of paper bags, which are more expensive than plastic ones. Councilor Rebecca Wurzburger introduced the bill to amend the ordinance based on advice from City Attorney Kelly Brennan, who raised the question of the legality of the provision. Wurzburger’s proposal also would give stores 30 days to implement the plastic-bag ban. “I think with the changing in city attorneys, the

Driver faces DWI charges in head-on wreck By Uriel Garcia

The New Mexican

A man accused of causing a head-on collision in December after driving the wrong way on Interstate 25 had a blood alcohol level of 0.21, almost three times the legal limit, police said. Joe Salazar, 52, is being charged with three counts of aggravated DWI resulting in great bodily harm, reckless driving and having an open container of alcohol after the results of his blood alcohol tests were announced Friday, according to a Santa Fe Police Department news release. “This suspect has not been arrested on the charges yet,” said Celina Westervelt, a police department spokeswoman. He will receive a notice to appear in court. Joe Salazar After the Dec. 18 crash on I-25 south of Santa Fe, near the St. Francis Drive interchange, Salazar was hospitalized, but he was released weeks later. The District Attorney’s Office was waiting on the blood alcohol test results to file official charges. Police said those charges were filed Friday morning. Police have said that Salazar was driving the wrong way on the interstate when he plowed his Dodge Stratus into a Ford pickup, which carried three men, ages 43, 39 and 31. The victims were treated for injuries at a hospital but were released shortly after. Both of the trucks were totaled, police said. Salazar, who broke both legs in the incident, had to be extricated from his truck by the Santa Fe Fire Department. An empty bottle of vodka was found in Salazar’s truck, police said.

Fee: Critics say bag charge another tax Continued from Page C-1 current one is taking a more cautious legal approach,” said City Councilor Patti Bushee, referring to Geno Zamora, who resigned as city attorney in October. Zamora, who now works as general counsel for Santa Fe Public Schools, said he was aware of litigation in other cities, but “in our review, we felt that the fee was appropriate under the circumstances.” Bushee planned to introduce a bill to postpone the ordinance but has since dropped that idea and supports the Wurzburger proposal. She pointed out that business owners could still charge for paper bags if they wanted to. But she said, “I hope that we aren’t unintentionally directing folks to use more paper bags” by eliminating the 10-cent fee. The intent of the original ordinance was to conserve resources and reduce waste, litter and pollution and keep plastic bags out of landfills. The Santa Fe ordinance will ban bags thinner than 2.25 mils, the kind used by grocery stores and other retail outlets. Sue Vang of Californians Against Waste, which lobbies for plastic-bag bans, said the 2013 Los Angeles County case is the only litigation in the state involving paper-bag fees. And in that case, the court said, “We conclude that the paper carryout bag charge is not a tax, because the charge is payable to and retained by the retail store and is not remitted to the county.” In Aspen, Colo., the Colorado

Union of Taxpayers, a local nonprofit, is suing the city over a plastic-bag ordinance that puts a 20-cent fee on paper bags at grocery stores. The group is calling this a tax because a percentage of the fee goes into a city government fund specifically for environmental programs. Hawaii, in 2012, was the first state to ban plastic bags. It did not mandate a paper-bag charge, although lawmakers are considering it. Gene Valdez, executive director of the New Mexico Grocers Association, opposes the Santa Fe ordinance. He said the city government shouldn’t be telling business owners how to run their operations. People should be using fewer plastic bags, he agreed, but forcing customers to pay for paper bags will essentially be a tax. “Even if the city eliminates this 10-cent charge, the businesses are going to have to get it back somehow, and that’s going to be in the cost of goods,” he said. “So the consumer is going to pay for it either way, so yes, it is a tax.” The proposed amendment will be heard by the Public Utilities Committee on Feb. 5 and the Business and Quality of Life Committee on Feb. 18.

And I think that’s the opportunity Russell wanted to give them, not so much that I’m so much better than any of their teachers.” Thandia Seagraves and Maya Barrens, both 13, agreed that Salsberg is a demanding teacher, and they said they have not been pushed to learn so much before. “We finished the dance in three days, which is

forefront of research related to salinity tolerance and subsurface irrigation. The research group contends treated effluent produced by city utilities should be considered an alternative source of water for parks and golf courses. Through a National Science Foundation grant, Leinauer has been working with the University of California Berkeley, Stanford University and Colorado School of Mines to see if treated effluent can be adapted to residential areas. Another alternative is saline groundwater, which Leinauer said makes up 70 to 80 percent of all water in New Mexico. Leinauer also has been looking at subsurface watering. “One of the reasons we use so much water during the summer, especially in the residential sector, is that irrigation systems we have in place are extremely inefficient,” he said. “You see water on the sidewalk or water running down the street.”

The deputy’s report says the suspects are accused of causing $2,100 in damages. u Someone stole three bikes and a chain saw from a shed at a house on Don Filomeno Road, in northern Santa Fe. The victim reported that the burglary occurred between Jan. 10 and Jan. 24.

Police seek at least 15 people who fled vehicle after rollover in Arizona WINONA, Ariz. — Authorities are searching for people who ran from a vehicle after it rolled over in northern Arizona. The Arizona Department of Public Safety says 15 people have been accounted for but it’s unknown how many are still missing. KTVK-TV reports that the DPS and Coconino County Sheriff’s Office say several people fled the scene Friday night near Winona, which is 10 miles east of Flagstaff.

The DPS says the vehicle rolled on eastbound I-40, and some witnesses reported as many as 20 people may have been in the vehicle. The DPS says six people were taken to area hospitals for their injuries. Authorities say the driver was caught after fleeing. The DPS says any other victims could be dealing with injuries and cold temperatures. The Associated Press

Horoscope HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014: This year you are a force to be dealt with. When you decide to accomplish something or head in a new direction, you will do just that. You will use mind over matter in order to emphasize what you want. If you are single, you will be surrounded by friends. A romance could bloom after spring. You could meet this person through a friend, or a friendship could become more. If you are attached, you will appreciate the balance of friendship and romance that the two of you have achieved. Sagittarius could be too much of a risk taker — even for you!


TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH You could be curious as to what is happening within your immediate circle. Even a close loved one seems to be changing in front of your eyes. Don’t push someone past his or her limits; instead, help this person explore a special opportunity. Tonight: A conversation enriches you. This Week: You will want to gain more insight. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Defer to others, especially if you seek better understanding as to what they are about. A friend from a distance could call and chime in with many of his or her opinions.

This Week: Others prove to be distracting. Let it happen. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH Your friends mean more to you than to any other sign.

The art of survival Bataan Death march behind him, retired landscape architect focuses on beauty

years as a prisoner of war in a Manchuria prison camp. Moseley said because of his education, his captors had him draft plans for machine parts instead of doing manual labor. But, he said with a smile on his face, sometimes would alter the plans slightly so the parts would be less effective. “Luckily, I was never caught,” Moseley said. Moseley is one of two Santa Feans still living — John Daly is the other — who survived the Bataan march. Moseley was freed in 1945 and returned to his job with the National Park Service at Carlsbad Caverns. But he soon was promoted to the Santa Fe office. He built his own home on Santa Fe’s

east side, where he still lives. Moseley has decorated his home with artifacts accrued during his world travels. Standouts include a white marionette elephant from India and a 2-foot long bronze rhinoceros that came from Turkey, a memento Moseley said was particularly tricky to get home. Moseley’s home reflects the time he spent as a landscape architect. Several rooms are positioned next to tall windows that reveal scenes such as a courtyard with a solitary tree. Another room faces three aspen trees, offering a close view of changing colors come fall. Moseley built his Camino Lejo home in the mid-1950s, and at the time, his was one of only two houses.

ar veteran and former National Park Service landscape architect John Moseley, 96, doesn’t have many wants, but if he could, he said, he would like to go back to Amman, Jordan, to paint a landscape. Moseley’s home is already adorned with watercolor paintings from scenes that illustrate his travels to countries such as Turkey and Ireland. Other pictures depict adobe walls lined with glowing farolitos. But all reveal a man who can spot and re-create the beauty of his surroundings. Moseley grew up in Texas and graduated from Texas A&M University in 1939. Kay Hilliard, Moseley’s daughter, said that in the summers, he traveled to New Mexico and worked for the National Park Service at Carlsbad Caverns. After graduation, Hilliard said, Moseley got his first job working full-time at the national park in Southern New Mexico. But it wasn’t long until World War II erupted, and Moseley received his draft letter from the U.S. Army. He joined the 200th Coast Artillery of the New Mexico National Guard, a unit that achieved fame because many of its members were subjected to the Bataan Death March. Hilliard said that like many war veterans, her father didn’t speak about his combat experiences, but his feats are remarkable, nonetheless. Moseley survived the Bataan Death March, a forced 65-mile voyage on foot that ended in the deaths of 10,000 troops — 9,000 Filipinos and 1,000 Americans. Moseley then spent several

Seahawks look to lift Seattle’s reputation

Valdez takes super flyweight title

By Tim Booth

The Associated Press

SEATTLE — Standing in the middle of the locker room, nodding his head to the beat of the music thumping with bone shaking bass, Ben Haggerty absorbed the scene. As he shook hands with players and coaches who for the most part lacked association to Seattle other than employment as members of the Seahawks, Haggerty watched the chaos around him with special appreciation as a hometown native. Better than most, Haggerty knew how special the moment was as the Seahawks celebrated winning an NFC title and getting to the Super Bowl, because they happen so infrequently in Seattle. “This is the team. At the beginning of the year, preseason, it was like this was the team to do it,” said Haggerty, a Seattle native better known to his millions of fans as Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist Macklemore. “All these guys, the defense, Russ, Pete, everybody, it’s been an amazing year to watch. We deserve to be there.” The last sentence Macklemore uttered is the one that is so rare in Seattle. This is the region of jets and technology, of guitar riffs and coffee. It’s not a place where expecting championships is the norm, because there’s been so much disappointment in the past.

Holmes, Lovato knock out opponents in bouts By James Barron The New Mexican

the main event of the “Return of the Warrior” fight card at Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino with a unanimous decision over Jaime “Fama” Gutierrez from Albuquerque in a 118-pound, super flyweight bout. While he showed he could box, Santa Fe’s Brandon Holmes showed he could punch, as he knocked out Albuquerque’s Brandon Muñoz 2 minutes and 21 seconds into the first round for his third knockout in as many pro bouts.

Monica Lovato of Española showed she still has plenty of skills left after a six-year layoff, knocking out J.D. Morrison in the fourth round of her fight that led into the Holmes’ and Valdez’s bouts. As for the main event, Valdez (8-43) mixed in patience with a flurry of activity at certain parts of each round, and he scored enough points for a 58-56, 58-56, 59-55 decision on the three judges’ cards. And Valdez could boast about being a boxer

Parents of players said that Martinez was abusive to his players during practice, and if things didn’t change, they said, many players would quit the team. There also was multiple rumors that Martinez’s time as head coach was up. Martinez is still the head coach, but he admits that he has faced this kind of scrutiny before. Although there may have been conflicts with him in the past, he claims he has always been able to bring the team together. If there’s ever a day when he can’t correct the team’s inner strife, Martinez said, then that’s the day he’ll no longer be the Sundevils’ head coach. “When my program is falling apart, I really hold myself accountable,” Martinez said. “One of these days, I’m not going to be able to land that ship, and when I don’t land it, it will be time for me to step down.” Both players and coaches did not address their inner problems and conflicts, but both agree that the games have to go on. “At the end of the day, we just have to play basketball,” Española Valley junior guard Jared Garduño said. “No matter what’s going

Minus their big man in the middle, The University of New Mexico men’s basketball team found its way to another impressive road win. Behind 23 points from Kendall Williams and 19 from Cameron Bairstow, the Lobos rallied in the waning moments for a 68-66 victory over Colorado State in Mountain West UNM 68 Conference action Saturday afterCSU 66 noon in Fort Collins, Colo. New Mexico improves to 15-4 overall and 6-1 in league play. CSU is now 12-8, 3-4. The Lobos were playing without the services of 7-foot center Alex Kirk. The junior who had started 51 straight games was on the sidelines with a walking boot on his left foot. While addressing the media afterward, New Mexico head coach Craig Neal described it as an “undisclosed leg injury.” “It’s not broke,” he said. “It’s a day to day deal.” Seven-foot freshman Obij Aget got his first career start, logging 12 minutes and scoring four points with two rebounds. Neal opted to counter Kirk’s absence with what was essentially a guard-oriented lineup. He toyed with a four-guard platoon in the days leading into Saturday’s game. “I think the four-guard lineup really opened up the floor and gave Kendall some driving lanes, gave Cam some really good looks, easy shots that he was able to convert on,” Neal said during his post game radio show. He added that he and his staff struggled to figure out the ideal lineup to replace Kirk’s looming presence. “For two days, we were literally sitting in there going, ‘Alright, any ideas?’ ” Neal said. The Lobos trailed 27-24 at halftime, thanks largely to missing all nine of their 3-point attempts. The Rams then opened a 35-28 lead in the early moments of the second half, their biggest margin of the game. Williams hit a 3-pointer — UNM’s first of the game — to ignite a 7-0 run that tied it. From there, the game remained close as the Lobos held a 60-56 lead with four minutes remaining. A Colorado State run of 7-0 over the next two minutes put the Rams ahead 63-60, but another Williams 3-pointer knotted it at the 2:19 mark. Down by a point, the Lobos took their final lead of the game when Hugh Greenwood drained a 3-ball from the left wing to put New Mexico ahead 66-64 with 51 seconds remaining. It came just moments after UNM guard Deshawn Delaney nearly lost the ball out of bounds, worked it to Bairstow near the free throw line, who then fed Greenwood on the outside. A critical timing error by the CSU clock operator then helped the Lobos burn roughly 30 seconds off the clock. The Rams’ Gerson Santo had a shot partially blocked by Bairstow with 40 seconds left and the ball was rebounded by Greenwood on the other side of the rim.

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — About half of Americans say they are fans of pro football, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll, and nearly a third of those fans say they would not consider attending a Super Bowl — even though few have any idea how much it costs. The NFL is still the most popular sports league in the U.S., drawing the highest TV ratings by far. Its revenues climbed above $9 billion last year and the Super Bowl between Seattle and Denver in New Jersey will be the most watched television program of the year. The AP-GfK poll was released Saturday. Last year, 56 percent of people polled said they were NFL fans, and that number dropped slightly to 49 percent this year. Even among those who said they were NFL fans, 31 percent said they had no interest in attending a Super Bowl, even if they could afford it. Fans have complained about high ticket prices, with very few available to the general public at face value, and most fans having to go through resellers to get into the game. Fans had a wide-range of guesses as to what a face value Super Bowl ticket costs, though 41 percent chose an amount between $251 and $500. The median estimate was $500. The median estimate from fans on what it would cost to buy a Super Bowl ticket on the secondary market rose to $1,000. Ticket prices for the Super Bowl range from $500 to $2,600, though only 1,000 tickets are available for $500. Forbes reported Saturday that the average price for a ticket to next week’s game from a ticket broker or secondary seller such as TiqIQ was $2,505, according to SeatGeek, which tracks prices. Prices change daily. Nearly half of fans (48 percent) would be willing to pay $250 or less for a Super Bowl ticket if their team was playing in the game, and 8 percent said they wouldn’t be willing to pay anything to attend the game, even if their team was playing.

I was just trying my boxing and trying things out on him.” It seemed that Gutierrez was trying to test Valdez’s patience and resolve as he often tried to goad Valdez into a street brawl. He blew a kiss, invited Valdez over to the ropes to trade punches with him and even

Española Valley looks beyond rumored inner strife to beat Jaguars By Edmundo Carrillo The New Mexican


SPAÑOLA — Problems at Española? What problems at Española? Despite rumors and speculation that players on the Española Valley boys basketball team were going to stage a massive walkout and head coach Richard Martinez was going to be fired, the Sundevils beat the visiting 2AAAA Capital Jaguars 60-58 in Edward Medina Gymnasium on Saturday night with both coach and players suited up. “I didn’t see anybody walk out,” Martinez said. “We’re united, and we’re having fun and we’re enjoying the game.” The Sundevils (10-9 overall, 2-0 in 2AAAA) may be having fun now, but apparently there was some strife within the team at some point earlier in the season.

Northern New Mexico

Demons pull ahead of Los Alamos SCOREBOARD

The New Mexican

With both teams needing a break to resurrect a gloomy season, Santa Fe High was the team that got it. The Demons got 11 points from Julio Rivera and nine points and 10 rebounds from S.F. HIgh 55 Hayden Hargrove in a Los Alamos 44 55-44 win at Los Alamos in boys basketball action Saturday night. Santa Fe High improves to 3-16 overall and 1-1 in District 2AAAA. The Demons will host Bernalillo next Friday with a chance to climb into the top half of the district race. “You know, we were playing well and got up a decent amount, and then in the span of about eight minutes between the second and [third] quarter, we hit that wall and had that look in our eye we’ve seen too many times,” said Demons head coach David Rodriguez. “I was proud of my guys for not letting it get away this time.” Leading 21-6 after the first quarter, Santa Fe High took a 31-24 lead into halftime and struggled to stay in front thanks to 14-for27 shooting from the free throw line. In the end, it proved to be enough. Franklin Archuleta had 13 points, and Seth Drop had 11 to lead Los Alamos (1-18, 0-2). ST. MICHAEL’S 42, TAOS 37 In Taos, the visiting Horsemen literally saved their best for last. Trailing virtually the entire way, they outscored the Tigers 20-5 in the fourth quarter to get the nondistrict win and improve to 16-3 overall. Isaiah Dominguez scored all 11 of his

points in the fourth, as he and center Justin Flores did much of the heavy lifting down the stretch. Using pressure defense to create bad shots and turnovers, the offense went to work by pounding the ball inside to Dominguez and Flores. The end short-circuited what had been an otherwise solid night for Taos (15-4). Behind a game-high 13 points from Shane Willis, the Tigers led 11-3 after one quarter and 23-12 at halftime. They still had a 10-point lead entering the final quarter. Flores had 12 points to lead St. Michael’s.

POjOAqUE VALLEY 83, RATON 63 In Jacona, the host Elks (9-10, 1-1) got a 2AAA win over the visiting Tigers (7-8, 0-2) by getting double-digit scoring from five players. Jeremy Santistevan led the way with 16 points. Chris Martinez had 13, Matthew Herrera 12, and Adan Lopez and John Ainsworth Jr. had 10 apiece. Pojoaque blew the game wide open with a 31-10 run in the first quarter, carrying a commanding 50-32 lead into halftime. Rashaan Craig led Raton with a gamehigh 32 points.

men with 15 points. Alex Groenewold had eight.

POjOAqUE VALLEY 62, RATON 45 In Jacona, the Elkettes (11-8, 2-0) rolled to their second straight 2AAA victory thanks to balanced scoring that saw four players reach double figures. Miranda Martinez led the way for Pojoaque with 12 points. Leslie Gutierrez had 11 while Aaliya Casados and Gaby Gonzales each had 10. Tarryn Trujillo had 17 to lead Raton (11-6, 0-2). The Elkettes never trailed, leading by as many as 22 points in the second half.


DESERT ACADEMY 36, TIERRA ENCANTADA 25 At Santa Fe Preparatory, the Lady Wildcats (6-9) avenged an earlier loss to the Lady Alarcranes by getting 11 points from Franny O’Byrne, seven from Amelia Lynette, and six apiece from Natasha Brown and Danielle Zimber. Desert Academy was outrebounded but managed to stay in front with balanced scoring and controlling the tempo with defense.

SANTA FE HIGH 47, ST. MICHAEL’S 36 At Toby Roybal Memorial Gymnasium, the host Demonettes (17-1) got 15 points from Sabrina Lozada-Cabbage and nine apiece from Kayla Herrera and Jackie Martinez to get a nondistrict win over the Lady Horsemen (11-7). Santa Fe High led 11-4 after the first quarter and stayed in front the entire way. The win was the second of the season against St. Michael’s, which has now dropped four of its last five games overall. Jocelyn Fernandez led the Lady Horse-

SANTA FE PREPARATORY 48, ESCALANTE 19 At Prep, the host Blue Griffins (10-8) wrapped up their nondistrict slate with their second win of the year over the Lady Lobos. Bianca Gonzales had 17 to lead Prep. Alex Archuleta added 10. The Griffins never trailed, holding Escalante to seven or fewer points en every quarter. They led 25-8 at halftime, outscoring the Lady Lobos 15-2 in the second quarter.

Warrior: Lovato’s bout goes into final round Continued from Page D-1 clapped in unison to the crowd’s chants of “Tony” during the second round. When that didn’t work, he tried to attack him more in the later rounds, and Gutierrez nailed Valdez with some hard shots. Gutierrez’s tactics were to try to secure a knockout that he figured he needed since he was in enemy territory. “He’s hometown, and that’s why he won,” Gutierrez said. “The judges were for him.” There were plenty of knockouts on the co-main event and the undercard, starting with Holmes in the super-bantamweight fight. He waited patiently for the aggressive Muñoz to drop his hands. When that happened, Holmes landed hard left that put Muñoz on his seat. Muñoz bounced backed up and started swinging away at Holmes, and he dumped

in the corner and the referee called a halt to the fight. It didn’t sit well with Muñoz, who protested he was fine, even though he leaned on the ropes for a few seconds as he struggled to his feet. “I was going to surprise him by rushing at him,” Holmes said. “And then he got worries and he threw. Once he was done throwing, that’s when I threw again.” Lovato needed the final round of her 126-pound bout to score her knockout of the gangly Morrison, who seemed to keep Lovato off-balance in the first two rounds with a style Lovato called “sloppy.” It didn’t help that Lovato didn’t have enough time to warm up before she was ushered out for her bout, and she said the first round felt almost like a warm-up. Once she did, she landed quick lefts and rights before retreating shortly and then attacking again. Lovato (13-1) hit Morrison twice in the

fourth, and the fighter turned her back as if she was giving up. Lovato was hesitant to pursue her the first time, but the referee ended the fight after Morrison did it a second time. “I wanted to hit her, but I didn’t want to hit her,” Lovato said. “I was like, ‘Turn around or something.’ ” In the other bouts, Albuquerque’s Angelo Leo beat former Taos resident Michael Herrera with a knockout 45 seconds into the 118-pound fight. Leo said an overhand right caught Herrera, but it was his corner that alerted him to it. “I hear one of my trainers say, ‘You hurt him,’ and I went after him,” Leo said. Meanwhile, Miguel Gloria beat Santa Fe’s Josh Montoya by unanimous decision in a 138-pound fight. The opening bout went to Albuquerque’s Matthew Baca, who beat Michael Gallegos of Las Vegas, N.M., by split decision in a 146-pound bout.

on off the court, it doesn’t matter.” Garduño, who finished with a game-high 28 points for the Sundevils, was one of the players who had a conflict with Martinez. He wouldn’t comment on the nature on the conflict, citing it as a touchy subject, but he did say he is trying to move on from it. “Richard and I have a good relationship,” Garduño said. “Whatever was said was said. I played today like I always play.” Garduño and the rest of the Sundevils held off the Jaguars (9-10, 0-1) in a game that had seven lead changes. Española’s Elias Archuleta hit a shot while he was fouled to give the Sundevils a 48-46 lead with 39 seconds left in the third quarter. From that point, the Sundevils never trailed again. While the Sundevils have now won two straight games, they went on a seven-game skid before beating Santa Fe High on Wednesday. That losing streak took a toll on Española, and it caused emotions to flare. “If you ask me, that did it,” Marti-

nez said about the losing streak. “We thought we were going to fall apart. Losing is one of the worst things. Nobody’s ever happy losing.” Now, the Sundevils have won their first two district games. All of the games they lost are in the past, and both players and coaches want to leave those losses and all the turmoil that came with them. “We just have to move forward,” Martinez said. “There’s a lot of things that can happen over the course of the season. We’ve had our turbulence just like any other program. How you come out of it at the end signifies where you’re at. I just make sure that the kids are safe and that we move forward, and that’s the important thing right now.” Even though the program has undergone some inner turmoil recently, Martinez still believes the team is in a good place. “I’m really happy with where we’re at,” Martinez said. “I like what I’m seeing so far. It just goes to show you the resiliency of this program. That’s Española for you. We’re not going to lay down for anybody.”

Lobos: Critical timing error helps UNM Continued from Page D-1 Rather than resetting the 35-second shot clock, the operator allowed it to run for approximately five seconds before doing so. That allowed Williams to dribble into the far court and retain possession until he was fouled with 10.1 seconds left. Rams head coach Larry Eustachy was visibly upset, but no action was taken. Williams hit 2 of 4 free throw attempts in the final 10 seconds, then a potential tying shot at the buzzer from CSU’s Daniel Bejarano bounced off the side of the backboard as time expired. Greenwood and Cullen Neal each had

eight points for New Mexico. Greenwood had a pair of 3-pointers, giving him at least two in six of his last seven games. The Lobos were 7-for-11 from 3-point range after halftime after not making a single attempt in the first half. Bejarano had 21 points to lead Colorado State. Leading scorer J.J. Avila was held 10 points below his average with just eight. He was 1-for-12 from the field. New Mexico remained in Colorado overnight Saturday, traveling to Denver to take in an NBA game between the Indiana Pacers and Denver Nuggets, a game that featured former Lobo Danny Granger, now with Indiana.

UNM’s next game will be Tuesday at Utah State. Kirk’s status is murky, at best. There is no indication when — or if — the Los Alamos High grad will return. Neal wouldn’t elaborate on the exact nature of the injury, only saying that it has bothered Kirk the last three games. “It just goes back to I’m protecting my guy,” Neal said. “The most important thing is my kids’ health.” He later added: “It’s been a progressive thing that we thought we needed to get checked out. They [the UNM training staff] just thought he needed a little time off and we’re just taking care of our player.”

University of Wyoming launches $30 million arena renovation LARAMIE, Wyo. — The University of Wyoming launched a $30 million renovation of its Arena-Auditorium on Saturday with the announcement of $10 million in private donations. The court will be named after one of the donors, Cheyenne businessman Maury Brown. A total of 36 donors provided funding after the Legislature committed $10 million in state matching funds to encourage donations. Lawmakers then appropriated $5 million more toward the project. “We are extremely grateful to all of those individuals who have stepped forward to make this project possible,” athletics director Tom Burman said in a statement. “Cowboy and Cowgirl basketball generate a great deal of passion around our state, and we know how proud the people of Wyoming are of the young men and women who worn the Brown and Gold through the years.” The 32-year-old facility will undergo a major renovation after the current basketball season ends, including expanded courtside seats with padding, modernized locker rooms and new weight and sports medicine areas. The basketball court will be rotated 35 degrees to allow two full practice courts, and two new video boards will be installed. A 22-foot-high sculpture depicting former Wyoming All-America basketball player Kenny Sailors will greet fans at a redesigned front entrance to the arena. The sculptor will be Rudy Gunter, a UW graduate from Green River. The Associated Press

No. 2 Syracuse stays undefeated The Associated Press

For star skiers, pain is part of the game Review finds 50 top racers have sustained injuries on the slopes By Howard Fendrich and Pat Graham The Associated Press

LAKE LOUISE, Alberta — After completing her third race in three days back in December — a trio of tests, 10 months after reconstructive knee surgery and two months before the Sochi Olympics — Lindsey Vonn declared herself ready to go. Ready to win, actually. “I’m overcoming a lot, and it shows me, mentally, what I’m capable of. I’ve obviously experienced a lot of injuries in my career, but this is definitely at the top of the list,” Vonn said then, raising her hand up near eye level. “Skiing with not very much ACL left — it’s pretty hard-core. … I’m not going to give up, and I’m going to be in Sochi, fighting for my medal.” Four weeks later, though, having reinjured her right knee, two-time Olympic medalist Vonn called off her bid to be ready for these Winter Games, reminding everyone what so many ski racers know so well: Theirs is an unforgiving sport. An Associated Press review of the careers of the top 50 in the overall World Cup standings on Jan. 12 — the 25 men and 25 women most likely to earn an Alpine medal in Russia, where the first race is scheduled for Feb. 9 — shows that more than half have missed significant time because of a skiing-related injury. “She understands that, at some point in time, you’re going to have a serious injury,” said Vonn’s father, Alan Kildow. “It just happened to be before an Olympic year.” Of the 27 athletes, the AP found to have experienced major health issues due to ski accidents, 18 damaged knees, usually tearing a ligament, as happened to Vonn. There’s a sense of inevitability about it among the elite-level ski racers and coaches, as if it’s a cost of doing business, essentially. If a big injury hasn’t happened yet, the thinking goes, it will. Each time there’s an injury in a race or training, there are two parts of the comeback: the physical and the mental. “We see a lot of shooting stars come in young, and I’m always the one to say: ‘Let’s wait until after the injury.’ I know it sounds bad, but that’s the way it is,” said Hugues Ansermoz, the coach of Canada’s women’s Alpine team. “There have been a few people that disappear after injury; they can never come back. And this is not good, but it’s part of the game. The champions, the real champions, they all come back stronger.” Ansermoz, previously Switzerland’s coach, pointed to someone from that country, Lara Gut. She won two silvers as a teenager at the 2009 world championships and was expected to shine at the Vancouver Games — until, that is, she dislocated her right hip in a training crash in September 2009, and sat out the Olympics. Now Gut is back at her best, winning four World Cup races from late October to early December. “After my injury,” said Gut, 22, “I started building my body again and my skills again.” The International Ski Federation, known as FIS, makes rules changes here and there in the

name of increased safety, such as tweaking specifications for the skis themselves. Helmets that are supposed to better shield heads in falls were introduced this season. More and more protective netting abuts courses. “There’s always room for improvement, for sure, but it’s also necessary to say we’re at a very, very high level now in terms of what’s possible,” said Atle Skaardal, the women’s race director for FIS. “There are a lot of athletes who have gone through ACL reconstruction. A lot of guys who have broken pelvises and legs. That’s part of the sport,” said U.S. racer Ted Ligety, a gold medalist at the 2006 Turin Olympics and three-time winner at last year’s world championships. “I’d say 90 percent of ski racers come back from ACL injuries just as good, if not stronger than before.” Ligety, a 29-year-old from Park City, Utah, is one of the lucky ones: He hasn’t been forced to miss an Olympics or world championships because of a major injury. That’s not to say he never has been hurt, of course. One example: Ligety wiped out during downhill training at U.S. nationals in 2009, crashing face-first and partially tearing ligaments in his right knee. But he did not need surgery. He did miss out on weeks of training while his knee was immobilized. His American teammate Bode Miller, a five-time Olympic medalist, was away from competition for 20 months, including last year’s world championships, as he worked his way back from microfracture surgery on his left knee, which originally was injured all the way back in 2001. Joining Vonn on the sideline for Sochi are a pair of reigning world champions from France, Tessa Worley and Marion Rolland. Both injured knees. During the women’s downhill race at Vancouver four years ago, Rolland was among a halfdozen racers who crashed, tearing a ligament seconds into her run. Edith Miklos, a Romanian, was airlifted away by helicopter with a knee injury. Five-time Olympic medalist Anja Paerson of Sweden lost control on the last jump, landed on her back and slid across the finish line. Another racer falling that day was Dominique Gisin of Switzerland, who has needed nine — nine — operations on her knees through the years, seven on the right one. “I’ve had ACLs. I had a broken patella several times. I had ripped-out muscles. I think I did everything you can do to a knee, probably,” said Gisin, 13th in the World Cup standings on Jan. 12. Gisin explained that she thought about quitting “every time” she had surgery. “I love the sport, and I always try to fight back,” Gisin said. “But it’s not so easy, especially in the head. The mental part is probably harder.”

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — No. 2 Syracuse held Miami without a basket for 7½ minutes down the stretch Saturday and made eight consecutive free throws in the final minSyracuse 64 ute to remain unbeaten Miami 52 with a 64-52 victory over the Hurricanes. Miami led 47-46 with less than 7 minutes to go but made only one field goal the rest of the way. Syracuse (19-0, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) needs one more victory to tie the school record for most wins to start a season, set two years ago. The ACC newcomers beat defending league champion Miami (10-9, 2-5) for the second time in three weeks. Jerami Grant scored 16 points to lead the Orange, who had a 39-24 rebounding advantage. Davon Reed scored 16 points for the Hurricanes, who kept it close by shooting 9 of 17 from 3-point range. NO. 21 MICHIGAN 80, NO. 3 MICHIGAN STATE 75 In East Lansing, Mich., Nik Stauskas made a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 3:12 left and finished with 19 points, and freshman Derrick Walton Jr. scored a season-high 19, lifting Michigan to a win over Michigan State to remain the only Big Ten team without a conference loss. The Wolverines (15-4, 7-0 Big Ten) went on a 10-0 run late in the game to take control and held on to win for just the second time in 15 games at the Breslin Center. NO. 4 VILLANOVA 94, MARQUETTE 85 (OT) In Milwaukee, Ryan Arcidiacono had 20 points and 11 assists, and he coolly guided Villanova in overtime following a frenzied finish to regulation. Arcidiacono had six points and two assists in the extra period. He hustled for a loose ball with 37.7 seconds left that allowed Villanova coach Jay Wright to call a timeout and avoid a turnover. James Bell, who finished with 30 points, followed with two free throws to make it a three-possession game for the Wildcats (17-2, 6-1 Big East).

NO. 9 WISCONSIN 72, PURDUE 58 In West Lafayette, Ind., Sam Dekker and Traevon Jackson each scored 15 points Saturday, helping Wisconsin end its three-game losing streak with a victory at Purdue. The Badgers (17-3, 4-3 Big Ten) won for the first time since starting 16-0. It was only their fourth win ever at Mackey Arena. Terone Johnson and Bryson Scott each had 10 points to lead Purdue, but the Boilermakers (13-7, 3-4) lost their second straight. NO. 10 IOWA 76, NORTHWESTERN 50 In Evanston, Ill., Roy Devyn Marble scored 14 points for Iowa, which never trailed. Gabriel Olaseni had 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Mike Gesell added 11 points for the Hawkeyes (16-4, 5-2 Big Ten), who avoided losing consecutive games for the first time this season after falling 75-67 at No. 21 Michigan on Wednesday. They shot 51.9 percent from the field (28 of 54) and won their fourth in five games.

Georges Niang had 18 points, and freshman Matt Thomas matched a career high with 14 for the Cyclones (15-3, 3-3 Big 12), who blew a 12-point halftime lead before putting the game away late in the second half. NO. 18 DUKE 78, FLORIDA ST. 56 In Durham, N.C., Rodney Hood scored 18 points to help Duke, giving Hall of Fame coach Mike Krzyzewski his 900th victory at the school. Jabari Parker added 14 points for the Blue Devils (16-4, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who won their fourth straight game and extended the nation’s longest active home winning streak to 28 games. Duke used an 11-0 run late in the first half to build a 20-point lead and never let the Seminoles get the margin back to single digits again. NO. 20 PITTSBURGH 83, MARYLAND 79 In College Park, Md., Lamar Patterson scored 28 points, and Pittsburgh beat Maryland to complete its first regularseason sweep as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference. Pittsburgh (18-2, 6-1) never trailed in the second half against the struggling Terrapins, who lost by 20 to the Panthers on Jan. 6. Although this game was significantly closer than the first one, Maryland (11-9, 3-4) simply couldn’t contain Patterson, a 6-foot-5 senior who fell just short of matching his career high of 30 points.

Durant was scratched from the Thunder’s win over Boston on Friday with a sprained right shoulder. Against the Sixers, Durant was one of the first Thunder to hit the court for pregame warm-ups. He dunked several times, even hanging on the rim for several seconds after one, and was fit to play. Durant and the Thunder let the Sixers hang around for much longer. The 12-win Sixers trimmed Oklahoma City’s lead to four in the third quarter before Durant keyed a 14-5 run to open up a comfortable lead. Durant, the NBA’s leading scorer, has scored at least 30 points in his last 10 games. Serge Ibaka had 25 points and 11 rebounds for the Thunder. James Anderson led the Sixers with 19 points. Oklahoma City has managed to stay atop the West with Russell Westbrook out since Christmas recovering from right knee surgery.

GRIZZLIES 99, ROCKETS 81 In Memphis, Tenn., Mike Conley scored 17 points, and Zach Randolph had 15 points and 17 rebounds as the Grizzlies beat Houston for the second consecutive night. The Grizzlies won 88-87 in Houston on Friday, then took control of the rematch. Memphis held the Rockets to 38 percent shooting and built the lead to as many as 27 points before both teams sent in reserves to finish the game. Courtney Lee also had 15 points and Kosta Koufos scored 14, hitting seven of his eight shots from the field. James Harden led the Rockets with 16 points. Dwight Howard had 10 points and 12 rebounds, but Houston’s three-game road winning streak was snapped.

Santa Fe resident Linda J. Tanner, who took this photo of three rare African hornbills, said she and two others came upon the birds while driving in a safari vehicle in Tanzania. She said it was amazing to see one, let alone three sitting together. ‘I wish I had the words to describe their loud and distinct call,’ she said in an email. ‘The visit lasted seconds and in the blink of an eye, they flew off.’

Stars turn out to salute songwriter Carole King

Johansson responds to Israeli soda ad critics

LOS ANGELES — Carole King’s gift as a songwriter is all about connection — friends, lovers, strangers experiencing deep emotions not often exposed to each other. Over the decades, King has made that connection with untold millions of fans. Some of those fans came out to honor the songwriter as MusiCares person of the year Friday night as part of the build up to Sunday’s Grammy Awards. Among them, lifelong friend James Taylor, Gloria Estefan, Alicia Keys and Lady Gaga. Gaga told the crowd she used to lock herself in her father’s man room as a high school student and listen to “You’ve Got a Friend” over and over.

LOS ANGELES — Scarlett Johansson is responding to criticism over her new ad campaign for an Israeli company that operates in the West Bank. The 29-year-old actress said in a statement released Friday to The Huffington Post that she “never intended on being the face of any social or political movement, distinction, separation or stance” as part of her affiliation with SodaStream International Ltd. The Israeli drink maker recently signed the Her and The Avengers actress as its first “global brand ambassador.” She is to appear in a television ad during the Super Bowl on Feb. 2.

MEXICO CITY — “Drink the water.” It’s a suggestion alien to Mexico City residents who have long shunned tap water in favor of the bottled kind and to the throngs of tourists who visit the city each year, bringing with them fears of “Montezuma’s Revenge.” But a law recently approved by Mexico City’s legislators will require all restaurants to install filters so they can offer patrons free, drinkable water that won’t lead to stomach problems and other ailments. “We need to create a culture of water consumption,” said Dr. Jose Armando Ahued, health secretary for Mexico City. “We need to accept our water.” Bad tap water accounts in part for Mexico being the world’s top consumer of bottled water and — worse — soda, some 43 gallons per person a year. With an obesity epidemic nationwide, the city’s health department decided to back the water initiative. Mexico City officials say 65,000 restaurants will have six months to install filters once the bill is signed later this month. Health inspectors will make periodic visits and impose $125 to $630 fines to those not complying. The law doesn’t cover thousands of food stalls along Mexico City’s streets. Some restaurants already have filters. But when business consultant Jose Frank recently ate tacos with two colleagues

at Yucatan Cravings in the Zona Rosa tourist district, they all had bottled water. “I’m afraid to drink the water for everything they say. I don’t feel secure. I prefer bottled,” Frank said. A general distrust of tap water is not without reason. The city’s giant 1985 earthquake burst water pipelines and sewers, increasing waterborne diseases, and officials blamed water supply systems for a spread of cholera in the 1990s. Tourists still dread getting diarrhea from the microbes in untreated water. It’s a phenomenon so infamous, the bad water even starred in a Sex and the City movie, when Charlotte suffered the runny results of accidentally opening her mouth while showering in a Mexican resort. Mexico City’s health secretary said 95 percent of the capital’s drinking water is clean, based on daily checks of chlorination at various treatment plants. But experts note that while Mexico City water leaves the plant in drinkable form, it travels through old underground pipes and dirty rooftop water tanks to the consumer. Mexicans consume 69 gallons of bottled water per capita each year, mostly from 5-gallon jugs delivered by trucks to restaurants and homes. The number in the U.S. is 31 gallons, according to Jose MartinezRobles, of the New York Citybased consultant Beverage Marketing Corp. It’s not cheap. The large jugs can cost more than $2 in a country where the minimum daily wage is $5. One-liter water bottles range from 50 cents to a dollar. Giants such as French Danone, and Coca-Cola and PepsiCo are finding that bottled water is the fastest growing segment of their business.

A vendor fills his bicycle cart with jugs of water to sell to owners of street food stalls in Mexico City. A recently approved law requires all restaurants to install filters to improve the water’s quality. MARCO UGARTE/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Organization is key to functioning home office Keep workspace free of clutter and reap rewards By Nicole Anzia

or even a designated counter. What’s most important is to make the best use of your space by assigning a place for everything. Here are some tips:

Special To The Washington Post

Files and paper

As technology has evolved so rapidly in the past 10 years, so has the notion of a home office. We carry around work and personal files on a handheld device or laptop. But despite this convenience, it still helps to feel grounded with a designated spot at home to work, keep your important papers and store office supplies. Your base of operation doesn’t have to be an entire office. In fact, a big space doesn’t always result in better organization; if you end up keeping too much, it can make finding what you need more difficult. Your workspace could be a desk in the corner

At the beginning of the year (now!), go through and purge last year’s utility bills, bank statements and school papers so that you have room for this year’s records. Put papers that you need to keep from the previous year, but don’t need to access, in a labeled filing box and store them. Use desktop file boxes or wallmounted file pockets for bills. Magnetic strips and bulletin boards are great for pending papers or items that need action. Each family member should have his or her own letter-size box for this year’s keepsakes. At the end of the

year, go through the box to decide what to keep and what to toss. Older keepsakes, such as the birthday cards you received two years ago or the artwork your 10-year-old created when he was in kindergarten are OK to keep, just not in your everyday workspace. Box them up neatly, label them and put them in the attic or basement.

Supplies A workspace also requires a place to store supplies. A small box on your desk can hold a stapler, paper clips, tape and sticky notes. Overflow items can be kept in a portable tote in a closet if space is at a premium. But don’t buy paper clips for the next 10 years. Even if it’s cheaper to buy in bulk or you love a certain kind of pen, don’t buy 20 boxes. A couple of reams or a box of paper is sufficient,

and a half-dozen ink cartridges for your printer will suffice. If you need something else in a pinch, you can order it online or run to a store.

Cords Take time to determine how to keep your cords organized and accessible. When you add a power strip to accommodate more gadgets, label your cords and arrange them in a way that you can easily access them. There are many different products to help consolidate and hide unsightly cords. If you go to the trouble and expense to buy one, use it. People often buy bundlers and labels but then have a hard time gathering the motivation to get down on the floor and do the actual untangling. When it’s time to recycle one of your electronic devices, also remember to

recycle the cord. The most important piece of the puzzle: You Even a totally organized home office space will not stay organized magically. Daily maintenance is required. Sort your mail every day. Throw away junk mail immediately and pay bills as they arrive. Designate a spot for papers that need to be filed and another spot for papers that need action. File every other week and go through your action pile weekly. Don’t keep things you don’t need. If you’re contemplating whether you should keep something, the answer is probably no. Most important, start now. If you resolve simply to clear out old paperwork and make new file folders before the end of January, you’ll be well on your way to an organized 2014.


Hip space,

cool memories By Kim Cook

The Associated Press


utfitting a play space for children might consist of nothing more than setting up a few old furniture pieces, plastic storage bins and the extra television. But some parents want the play space to reflect their design aesthetic. Does the rest of the home read more Eero Saarinen than Superman? More Verner Panton than Pokémon? Is the vibe less Nickelodeon, more George Nelson? If so, you’ll want to try balancing kid-friendly with cool. Some options:

Mod mad Lots of decor from the 1960s and 1970s works well in a play space: mod lamps, modular furniture, pop art, and fun, space-age prints for wallpaper and textiles. Hues popular back then — orange, yellow, teal, green, white — add energy to furniture, cushions and rugs. New York-based designer Amanda Nisbet used a Roy Lichtenstein print and a chrometrimmed bubble chair in one of her children’s space projects. Victoria Sanchez, a designer in Washington, D.C., used colorful Missoni fabrics to liven up a teen lounge. (www.amandanisbe; Check out and Designpublic. com for pieces that fit the style. Hip, retro-style robot, typography and animal patterns designed by New Yorker Nancy Wolff are at And chocolate, tangerine or red knitted poufs and flat weave rugs with zingy geometric graphics are part of the signature line at For a low-key look that still fits the aesthetic, think smooth-edged Danish modern wood furniture. Armless upholstered club chairs look smart and are perfect for lounging; find new ones at and vintage ones on Or take a cue from Australian designer Anna Williams and use mid-century credenzas for toy storage — check out and for options at various prices. Accent with Mad Men-era posters or toy ads, and add floor pillows covered in patterns drawn from the era. Soothing hues like umber, avocado, mustard and sky blue keep the energy relaxed.

Industrial chic Rooms with an industrial feel — warehousegrade tables and storage, furniture and decora-

While offering functional storage and ample room to get creative, this modern play table appeals to contemporary families who want recreational spaces in the bedroom to blend with the rest of the family home. COURTESY RH BABY & CHILD

tive elements with a rugged look — appeal to many kids, who sense they can let loose in these spaces. And the style’s on trend, so it’s easy to do. Neutral color palettes mixing whites, grays and browns work for either gender. Look for ceiling lights caged in metal (no worries about errant pillows or Nerf balls), riveted furniture, and repurposed machine-shop elements such as gear pieces, tools and signage. A galvanized-iron, locker-style dresser makes great storage. (www. Powder-coated in crisp red or white, Ikea’s PS metal cabinet adds a pop of color. (www.ikea. com) A magnetized blackboard fits the edgy vibe and lets inspiration fly. Make your own inexpensively with instructions at theturquoisehome. com. Rugged-looking play tables offer surfaces for messy art and often offer great storage for toys and games. ( Lumber, flooring and stone yards will often give old pallets away: Lots of ideas for making your own play or coffee table can be found at

Exploration location Animals, trees and sky or earth elements can inspire children to be creative in play spaces, and many contemporary pieces appeal to both kids and adults. At, find the Zuo Modern Phante chair, a version of Eames’ iconic, polypropylene, elephant-shaped chair. A realistic, cast-resin bear’s head is fun, eclectic wall art. ( Ocean Sole’s animal sculptures made out of scavenged flip-flops would be inspiration for indoor adventures — rhinos, giraffes and lions

Poufs are stylish, rugged, portable and perfect for a modern play space. COURTESY FAB

And a soft gray and white wool rug silhouettes romping deer and a leafy forest at Other ideas: u Create inexpensive, customized storage in a playroom by painting or staining ready-made kitchen cabinets. Metal tool carts can be side tables, as well as portable art supply zones or

storage stations for small toy parts. u Multipurpose pieces serve the whole family’s needs. Land of Nod’s round coffee table with drawers is user-friendly for TV-watching, table games and crafts, with no sharp corners to worry about. Also from the retailer, a farmhouse-style work table with storage on the ends provides space for teens and laptops, grown-up tasks and art projects. Ikea’s Kivik sectional can be reconfigured a lot of different ways; it’s hardy, comfy and versatile for a family room. u Display books face forward on wall-mounted shelves with a lip, so covers can be easily seen. Or scrounge flea markets for old wooden carpenter’s tool boxes, which are sturdy and shallow.
