Wurzburger mulls next step in mayoral run City councilor gauging fundraising possibilities By Daniel J. Chacón The New Mexican

Rebecca Wurzburger

City Councilor Rebecca Wurzburger will continue her campaign for mayor of Santa Fe despite failing to qualify for public financing. For now, anyway.

“Over the next two weeks, I’ll be assessing my continuation to run,” Wurzburger said Tuesday, a day after the city clerk announced that Wurzburger didn’t meet the threshold to qualify for public financing. Mayoral candidates were required to collect at least 600 individual $5 contributions from registered voters in the city to receive $60,000 in public funds. Council candidates, who had to collect a smaller number of qualifying contri-

butions, depending on the council district in which they’re running, are eligible to receive $15,000 in public funds. Mayoral and council candidates who qualified for public financing could pick up their checks from the City Clerk’s Office as early as Thursday. City Clerk Yolanda Vigil did not offer a detailed explanantion as to why Wurzburger failed to qualify for public

U.S. students lag around average on global exam By Kimberly Hefling The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — American students once again trail many of their Asian and European peers on a global exam, a continuing trend that often is blamed on child poverty and a diverse population in U.S. schools. Education Secretary Arne Duncan called the results a “picture of educational stagnation” as U.S. students showed little improvement over three years, failing to score in the top 20 on math, reading or science. Students in Shanghai, China’s largest city, had the top scores in all subjects, and Singapore, South Korea, Japan and Hong Kong students weren’t far behind. Even Vietnam, which had its students participate for the first time, had a higher average score in math and science than the United States.

These results again raise the question of whether the United States is consistently outperformed because of the widely varied backgrounds of its students. Some are from low-income households, for example. Others don’t have English as their primary language. But some countries that outperform the United States also experience such challenges. “Americans have got a thousand reasons that one country after another is surpassing our achievement, and I have yet to find a good excuse,” said Marc Tucker, president of the National Center on Education and the Economy. About half a million students in 65 nations and educational systems took part in the 2012 Program for International Student Assessment, or PISA,

wo of Santa Fe County’s biggest delinquent property-tax bills appear to be connected to Española businessman Richard Cook’s plan to build a new interchange on N.M. 599 to reach his proposed office park near the Santa Fe Municipal Airport. In both cases, the overdue taxes are accruing in the names of other entities because the sales to Cook’s companies apparently were never properly recorded. In the first case, Albuquerque lawyer Hans William Voss has Santa Fe County’s fifth-largest delinquent bill, at $68,832, according to a list of taxdelinquent properties from the Santa Fe County

Voss, the immediate past president of the state bar association, said the bill resulted from him accepting 4.23 acres at 43 Aviation Drive in payment for a legal fee, then discovering later that his client already had conveyed her interest in the property to Santa Fe Transit Mix. “We made those folks aware of the fact that … they weren’t paying their bill,” he said. “I guess they’re just going to let it go. It’s disappointing to me that it continues to rack up in my name.” State corporation records don’t list Santa Fe Transit Mix, but they do list Española Transit Mix, Los Alamos Transit Mix and Associated Asphalt & Materials in Santa Fe, and the company that seems

PARIS — The Native American Hopi tribe took a Paris auction house to court Tuesday to try to block the upcoming sale of 32 sacred tribal masks, arguing they are “bitterly opposed” to the use as merchandise of sacred objects that represent their ancestral spirits. The Katsinam masks are scheduled for sale at the Drouot auction house on Dec. 9 and 11, alongside an altar from the Zuni tribe that used to belong to late Hollywood star Vincent Price, and other Native American frescoes and dolls. Advocates for the Hopis argue that selling the sacred Katsinam masks as commercial art is illegal because the masks are like tombs and represent their ancestors’ spirits. The tribe nurtures and feed the masks as if they are the living dead. The objects are surreal faces made from wood, leather, horse hair and feathers and painted in vivid pigments of red, blue,

Two gubernatorial candidates are using the state Inspection of Public Records Act to bludgeon each other. Sen. Howie Morales of Silver City, a Democrat running for governor, and Gov. Susana Martinez’s political Howie consultant, Jay McCleskey, have filed Morales formal public records requests seeking each other’s emails and other public information. Whether or not either information request will produce any damaging information is uncertain. However, McCleskey’s request for Morales’ email could put the spotlight on a controversial vote Morales made earlier this year — along with an overJay whelming, bipartisan majority of the McCleskey Legislature — to shield lawmakers’ emails and other documents from public inspection. If that vote does catch on as an issue, it would be ironic that Martinez would benefit from it. Until shortly after she was caught last year, top members of

In brief PARIS — French scientists looking into the death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat have dismissed poisoning by radioactive polonium, his widow announced Tuesday. Teams of scientists from three countries were appointed to determine whether polonium played a role in his death in a French military hospital in 2004. Palestinians have long suspected Israel of poisoning him, which Israel denies. After a 2012 report said that traces of radioactive polonium were found on Arafat’s clothing, Arafat’s widow filed a legal complaint in France seeking an investigation into whether he was murdered. As part of that investigation, French investigators had Arafat’s remains exhumed and ordered genetic, toxicology, medical, anatomical and radiation tests on them. Suha Arafat and her lawyers were notified Tuesday of the results. The French experts found traces of polonium but came to different conclusions than the Swiss about where they came from, finding that it was “of natural environmental origin,” Suha Arafat said.

House extends ban on all-plastic guns WASHINGTON — With the advent of 3-D printers capable of producing plastic weapons, the House voted Tuesday to renew a 25-yearold prohibition against firearms that can evade metal detectors and X-ray machines. A bipartisan bill extending the Undetectable Firearms Act was passed on a voice vote, a first for gun legislation since last year’s massacre at a Connecticut elementary school. The Senate is expected to act on the legislation when it returns from a two-week Thanksgiving recess next Monday, a day before the current law expires.

U.S. halts shipments from Afghanistan WASHINGTON — The United States said Tuesday it had stopped shipments of military equipment out of Afghanistan, citing the risk to truckers from protests along part of the route in neighboring Pakistan. There have been anti-U.S. demonstrations in Pakistan in recent days calling for an end to the American drone program that targets militants. So U.S. officials said that they had ordered truckers under U.S. contract to park at holding areas inside Afghanistan temporarily to avoid going there. Pentagon spokesman Mark Wright said the order affects outgoing shipments that the military calls “retrograde cargo” — equipment and other goods being sent home from military units as their numbers are reduced in Afghanistan.

Harrison Odjegba Okene looks in awe as a rescue diver surfaces into the air pocket that kept him alive for nearly three days. The picture is recorded by the diver’s headcam video. Okene was working as a cook aboard a tugboat in the Atlantic Ocean off the Nigerian coast in June 2013, when the vessel capsized and sank to the sea bed, where his 11 colleagues drowned.

Man survives 3 days at bottom of Atlantic By Michelle Faul The Associated Press

LAGOS, Nigeria ntombed at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean in an upended tugboat for three days, Harrison Odjegba Okene begged God for a miracle. The Nigerian cook survived by breathing an ever-dwindling supply of oxygen in an air pocket. A video of Okene’s rescue in May — www.youtube.com/ watch?v=ArWGILmKCqE — that was posted on the Internet more than six months later has gone viral this week. As the temperature dropped to freezing, Okene, dressed only in boxer shorts, recited the last psalm his wife had sent by text message, sometimes called the Prayer for Deliverance: “Oh God, by your name, save me. … The Lord sustains my life.” To this day, Okene believes his rescue after 72 hours underwater at a depth of about 100 feet is a sign of divine deliverance. The other 11 seaman aboard the Jascon 4 died. Divers sent to the scene were looking only for bodies, according to Tony Walker, project manager for the Dutch company DCN Diving, who were called to the scene because they were working on a neighboring oil field 75 miles away. The divers had already pulled up four bodies. So when a hand appeared on the TV screen Walker was monitor-

ing in the rescue boat, showing what the diver in the Jascon saw, everybody assumed it was another corpse. “The diver acknowledged that he had seen the hand and then, when he went to grab the hand, the hand grabbed him!” Walker said Tuesday. “It was frightening for everybody,” he said. “For the guy that was trapped because he didn’t know what was happening. It was a shock for the diver while he was down there looking for bodies, and we [in the control room] shot back when the hand grabbed him on the screen.” Walker said Okene couldn’t have lasted much longer. “He was incredibly lucky he was in an air pocket, but he would have had a limited time [before] … he wouldn’t be able to breathe anymore.” Okene’s ordeal began around 4:30 a.m. on May 26. Always an early riser, he was in the toilet when the tug, one of three towing an oil tanker in Nigeria’s oil-rich Delta waters, gave a sudden lurch and then keeled over. “I was dazed and everywhere was dark as I was thrown from one end of the small cubicle to another,” Okene said in an interview with Nigeria’s Nation newspaper. He groped his way out of the toilet and tried to find a vent, propping doors open as he moved on. He discovered some tools and a life vest with two flashlights, which he

stuffed into his shorts. When he found a cabin of the sunken vessel that felt safe, he began the long wait, getting colder and colder. He worried about his colleagues — the Ukrainian caption and 10 Nigerians, including four young cadets from Nigeria’s Maritime Academy. They would have locked themselves into their cabins, standard procedure in an area stalked by pirates. He got really worried when he heard the sound of fish, shark or barracudas he supposed, eating and fighting over something big. As the waters rose, he made a rack on top of a platform and piled two mattresses on top. According to his interview with the Nation: “I started calling on the name of God. … I started reminiscing on the verses I read before I slept. I read the Bible from Psalm 54 to 92. My wife had sent me the verses to read that night when she called me before I went to bed.” He survived off just one bottle of Coke, all he had to sustain him during the trauma. Okene really thought he was going to die, he told Nation, when he heard the sound of a boat engine. He was rescued by a diver who first used hot water to warm him up, then attached him to an oxygen mask. Once free of the sunken boat, he was put into a decompression chamber and then safely returned to the surface.

NEW YORK — CyberMonday is still on top. Retailers from Wal-Mart to Amazon started rolling out “Cyber” deals at the beginning of November, and kept them going on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. That led some to wonder if earlier sales would put a dent in CyberMonday sales. The date has been the biggest online shopping day of the year since 2010. But shoppers delivered. In fact, shoppers bought online at the heaviest rate ever Monday, according to research firm comScore Inc., which tracks online sales. The group said Tuesday e-commerce spending rose 18 percent from last year’s CyberMonday to $1.74 billion, making Monday the top online spending day since comScore began tracking the data in 2001. The figure does not include purchases from mobile devices. The strong online performance was in contrast to overall spending. Over the four days beginning on Thanksgiving, spending fell an estimated 2.9 percent to $57.4 billion, according to the trade group the National Retail Federation. Overall, the NRF expects holiday spending to rise 2.9 percent to $602.1 billion. Consumer electronics and video game consoles and accessories were among the biggest sellers of the day. Home and garden products, clothing and accessories, as well as sports and fitness products also performed well. ComScore tracks U.S. online sales based on observed behavior of a representative U.S. consumer panel of 1 million Web users. Meanwhile, IBM Benchmark reported on Tuesday that CyberMonday sales rose 20.6 percent. IBM Benchmark takes sales results from over 500 online retailers and analyzes the data to estimate total online spending. Mobile sales, including smartphones and tablets, made up 17 percent of total online sales, an increase of 55.4 percent compared with last year. Department stores were the strongest performers, with sales up 70 percent. Over the five-day shopping period beginning on Thanksgiving, sales rose 16.5 percent compared with 2012. Jay Henderson, strategy director of IBM Smarter Commerce, said the fact that there were strong online sales on Thanksgiving, Black Friday and CyberMonday bodes well for the rest of the season. “We should see continued growth straight through the holiday season,” he said. The name CyberMonday was coined in 2005 to encourage people to shop online. ComScore said Tuesday that even with high-speed connections being the norm these days, nearly half of consumers are still shopping online at work on CyberMonday.

Any problems with the health care tax credits probably won’t come to light until taxpayers file their 2014 tax returns in the spring of 2015. Most of the credits will be paid directly to health insurance companies, with taxpayers seeing the benefit in reduced premiums. Other taxpayers, however, can claim the credits on their federal tax returns, starting with 2014 returns. Under the health care law, the IRS is in charge of verifying eligibility for the tax credit and calculating the amount. Taxpayers, however, will have to be careful when they apply for the credits.

Justices offer little sympathy in case of frequent flier By Mark Sherman The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court indicated Tuesday it won’t offer much help to frequent fliers who want to sue when airlines revoke their miles or their memberships. The justices heard the case of a Minnesota rabbi who was stripped of his top-level “platinum elite” status in Northwest’s WorldPerks program because the airline said he complained too much. Rabbi S. Binyomin Ginsberg said Northwest, since absorbed by Delta, did not act in good faith when it cut him off. The airline said the federal deregulation of the airline industry in 1978 rules out most lawsuits like the one filed by Ginsberg. Most justices signaled they think that ruling for Ginsberg could give rise to state-by-state rules that the deregulation law was intended to prevent. Justice Stephen Breyer said Ginsberg’s complaint could apply to airline ticket prices, which are supposed to be set through competition. “It sounds to me like I go in to, you know, get a ticket, my reasonable expectation is they’re not going to charge me what they’re going to charge, you know. I mean, it’s unbelievable,” Breyer said. Under Ginsberg’s view of the case, Breyer said he could sue over the prices. “That might be a great idea, but I don’t think that’s the idea behind this act,” he said. Ginsberg said in court papers that he and his wife flew almost exclusively on Northwest, logging roughly 75 flights a year to travel across the United States and abroad to give lectures and take part in conferences on education and administration. He said he flew on Northwest even when other airlines offered comparable or better flights and in 2005, reached the highest level of the WorldPerks program. Northwest cut him off in 2008, shortly after Northwest and Delta agreed to merge. Ginsberg said the move was a cost-cutting measure designed to get rid of the high-mileage customers. Northwest says Ginsberg complained 24 times in a sevenmonth period, including nine instances of luggage that turned up late on airport baggage carousels. Northwest said that before it took action, it awarded Ginsberg $1,925 in travel credit vouchers, 78,500 bonus miles, a voucher for his son and $491 in cash reimbursements. The airline pointed to a provision of the mileage program’s terms that gives Northwest the right to cancel members’ accounts for abuse. A federal trial judge cited earlier Supreme Court cases involving claims against frequent flier programs in dismissing Ginsberg’s lawsuit, including his claim that Northwest did not live up to the terms of the contract. The judge said the contract gives the airlines the right to kick someone out of

Rabbi was stripped of his top-level status in Northwest program because the airline said he complained too much. the mileage program at its “sole judgment.” Justice Elena Kagan showed some sympathy for Ginsberg’s claim when she questioned Paul Clement, the Washington lawyer representing Northwest at the Supreme Court. If the airline could easily avoid living up to its end of the bargain in the mileage program, Kagan said, “I don’t think that I’d be spending all this time in the air on your planes. You know, I’d find another company that actually gave me the free ticket.”

Orrin Hatch of Utah, the top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee. “The very nature of these credits — pay first, verify a person’s income later — will lead to potentially hundreds of billions of dollars of improper payments.” Werfel said the health care credits might be less susceptible to fraud because most taxpayers won’t receive any cash.

‘Believe me, I’m no deadbeat’ For some, hefty delinquent tax bill a result of downturn

By Tom Sharpe The New Mexican

Financial straits, erroneous land records and unresolved legal disputes are among the reasons given for Santa Fe County’s largest delinquent property tax bills. “Believe me, I’m no deadbeat,” said Robert Frost, whose Two Spirits Inc., with his partner Robert Bolton, has the third largest delinquent tax bill in Santa Fe County, according to a list of delinquent taxpayers provided to The New Mexican. “It’s a simple matter of economics,” Frost said last week. “We’ve already agreed and set things up [so that] we’ll have it paid off one way or another by the end of January. We’ll either bring it from our own funds or the property will have sold.” Since 1996, Frost and Bolton have run the Inn of the Turquoise Bear at 342 E. Buena Vista St. in the 8,600-square-foot compound built in the early 20th century for Witter Bynner, a poet, interpreter of Chinese poetry and Santa Fe arts maven. Beginning in 2003, Frost said, the bed and breakfast has suffered from a downturn in the tourist industry, complicated by his recent bout with cancer. In 2006, they stopped paying the property taxes on the property valued at $1.05 million and put the property on the market in 2006 for $3.3 million. Last year, they dropped the price to $2.45 million.

Santa Fe County’s single largest delinquent property-tax bill belongs to Northern Rio Grande Sportsman’s Club, a nonprofit that has run a shooting range in La Puebla since the 1960s. Many of the delinquent taxpayers on the county list could not be tracked down or did not respond to messages. For example, Morrow Investments was second on the list for six years of delinquent taxes at 333 E. Palace Ave., a house just across from La Posada, valued at $1.69 million. J.D. Morrow, an architect and artist who lives and works there, did not respond to a message. Kaye E. Sandford, who is fourth on the list, also was unavailable for comment. She has had a number of addresses in Santa Fe, Lamy and Galisteo over the past decade, and it’s not clear where the property is located on which she owes taxes, but in 2004 she owned the Vista Clara Ranch Resort and Spa in Galisteo. Online court records indicate she was sued for foreclosure by Los Alamos National Bank in 2010 before the cases were suspended due to a filing for bankruptcy. Aspen Blue Sky Holdings, which has the seventh largest bill, is not listed in corporation records. However, they list both Aspen Holdings (Dirk and Liz Stronck of Santa Fe are the organizers) and Blue Sky Holdings (Justin Tallman of Española is the organizer). But it is not clear from public records where its property is. JDM LLC, a company connected to developer Steve Duran, holds the eighth largest bill for a tract of land once slated

SANTA FE COUNTY’S TOP 10 DELINQUENT PROPERTY-TAX BILLS 1. Northern Rio Grande Sportsman’s Club, $143,888 ($91,047 in delinquent taxes for 2005 to 2010, plus penalty, interest and state costs. 2. Morrow Investments LLC, $93,517 ($59,073 in delinquent taxes for 2005-10) 3. Two Spirits Inc., $77,291 ($48,412 for 200610) 4. Kaye E. Sandford, $76,897 ($54,978 for 2009-10) 5. Hans William Voss, $68,832 ($41,311 for 2003-10) 6. Tierra Contenta, $62,588 ($39,121 for 200610) 7. Aspen Blue Sky Holdings, $60,729 ($35,165 for 2006-08) 8. JDM LLC, $50,785 ($30,818 for 2007-08) 9. Tesuque Partners LLC, $49,507 ($34,112 for 2008-10) 10. Rainbow Vision LLC, $44,496 ($32,588 for 2010)

for development near the corner of Rufina Street and South Meadows Road. Duran did not return a message seeking comment. Tesuque Partners, which has the ninth largest bill, owns the Tesuque Village Market. But state corporation records do not list any officers of the firm, which has an address on Gonzales Road in Santa Fe. RainbowVision LLC has the 10th largest delinquent bill. The retirement complex marketed to same-sex couples, with 121 independent-living units and 25 assistedliving units on 13 acres of land at 500 Rodeo Road, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in June 2011.

Tax: Tierra Contenta says it sold land in ’09 Continued from Page A-1 to be working in the area, EMCO of Santa Fe. Cook’s daughter, Katharine Cook Fishman, is listed as the organizer of all four companies. Messages left for Cook, Fishman and Phillip Sena, a development consultant for the Cook family, were not returned. Voss said the property near the airport is vacant except for a small shed, but Santa Fe Transit Mix has been using it as a waste dump. “I don’t think they ever intend to pay the taxes on it,” he said. “They’re dumping old concrete there and soil and things that are byproducts of their business. … Someday the county will repossess it, and it’ll be full of stuff.” Work began this summer extending Jaguar Drive west over N.M. 599, also known as the Santa Fe Relief Route, to reach 371 acres where Cook plans to build an office park called The Pavilion. Cook also has plans for commercial developments along

the extended Jaguar Drive. The overpass, expected to cost $6 million to $10 million, would be the first highway interchange ever built by a private developer in Northern New Mexico. The Tierra Contenta Corp. has the county’s sixth largest delinquent tax bill, $62,588, according to the list from the county. But James Hicks, executive director of the nonprofit formed to distribute some 1,000 acres of city-owned land for housing, said the bill is for a tract of land that Tierra Contenta sold a Cook family company called Commercial Center at 599 Inc. at the end of 2009. Fishman is listed as the firm’s president and director in state corporation records. Like in Voss’ case, Hicks said he has tried several times to get the Santa Fe County Assessor to send the tax bill to Cook’s corporation without success. “Normally, I don’t like to blow the whistle on somebody else other than to say, ‘It’s

not ours,’ ” he said. “But we have taken the deeds over to the county several times to show them what the transactions were, and every time we take them over there, they have this big question mark on their face like, ‘We don’t remember.’ “ Chief Deputy Assessor Gary Perez said the problem appears to be that the Santa Fe County Clerk’s Office has never forwarded a deed proving that the two tracts have been transferred to Cook’s corporations. He said Tuesday that his researcher has yet to find another deed for the Voss property and is still looking for one on the Tierra Contenta transfer. “We usually get these on a daily basis, so for whatever reason maybe this is one that didn’t get found and didn’t get changed to the correct name,” he said. “I ran into a couple of these with some condos in Edgewood, and we’re fixing that right now.” Contact Tom Sharpe at 986-3080 or tsharpe@sfnewmexican.com.

Records: Morales voted for privacy rule Continued from Page A-1 her administration routinely used private emails to avoid public inspection. After the practice was exposed last year, Martinez issued an executive order calling on all executive branch employees under the governor to use official email accounts to conduct state business. On Nov. 26, Morales, who is seeking the Democratic Party nomination for governor, sent an official public-records request to several state agencies for all emails between state employees and McCleskey. Morales wants to see records of “meetings of state officials, and or staff with Mr. McCleskey regarding public information in which official state business was discussed.” Morales’ request was in reaction to a recent story about McCleskey in the National Journal. “Recent developments have come to light suggesting numerous, potentially illegal activities conducted by Mr. McCleskey,” Morales said in a news release. “One thing that has certainly come to our attention is that Mr. McCleskey is more involved in the policy making and inner working of our government than what we had previously believed.” The very next day, McCleskey hit back. A McCleskey employee, Stephen Dinkel, sent an IPRA request to the Legislative Council asking for “Any and all emails to or from Sen. Morales that discuss public business, including public business emails sent to the Gmail address Morales lists on the legislative website of, hcm260@gmail.com.” The request asked for any calendars or schedules used by Morales and “Any and

all records of meetings with anyone outside of state government regarding public information in which official state business was discussed, including any and all meetings with lobbyists.” In an email to potential donors Monday, Morales described this move as “a counterattack,” saying the request was “for my personal correspondence, for no reason other than the hope of finding a way to slander me.” Indeed, the gmail address listed in Dinkel’s request was a private address for Morales. But that’s what is listed on Morales’ official page on the Legislature’s website. He’s not alone in doing this. Dozens of lawmakers list their personal email accounts on the website and conduct legislative business on those accounts. Because of the Legislature email rule change, that request probably won’t get very far. In a statement, Martinez’s campaign spokesman, Danny Diaz said, “We call on [Morales] not to obstruct that request with the bogus rule he voted in favor of last session, which shields information from the public about what their elected officials are doing on the taxpayer’s dime.” In a statement Tuesday, Morales explained his vote. He said he believes in openness and transparency. “However, as a state senator, I have had many constituents send me correspondence of a very personal nature. Sharing those correspondence would jeopardize their privacy and potential safety. I have a responsibility to protect the trust that people have placed in me as their representative in the Senate. I hope that any government official would act in the same way.”

The rule change, formally known as House Concurrent Resolution 1, sponsored by House Republican Floor Leader Don Bratton of Hobbs, doesn’t mention email directly. The stated purpose of the measure was to formally appoint the Legislative Council Service as the custodian of records for the purpose of responding to public records requests — a practice that already had been in place. The final paragraph states that legislators “exercise authority collectively and not through the actions of individual members” and claims “the privileges and immunities afforded by” the state constitution. Basically, that means if a legislator wants to keep a document, email or otherwise hidden, the lawmaker only has to call it “privileged.” Some, including the New Mexico Foundation for Open Government, have questioned whether the state constitution grants that right to privacy in communications to legislators or other elected officials. HJCR 1 passed by huge bipartisan votes in both chambers. It sailed through the House 48-16 (where opponents included both Democrats and Republicans) and passed nearly unanimously in the Senate, where only Sen. Pete Campos, D-Las Vegas, voted against it. Another Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Linda Lopez, also voted in favor of shielding lawmakers’ emails. Another candidate, Attorney General Gary King, has immunized himself on this issue. While the Legislature was debating HJCR 1 in March, King issued an analysis saying lawmakers don’t have a constitutional immunity from producing requested documents.

Masks: Zuni altar is also for sale Continued from Page A-1 yellow and orange. In April, a Paris court ruled that such sales are legal in France, and Drouot sold off around 70 Hopi masks despite vocal protests and criticism from actor Robert Redford and the U.S. government. The U.S., unlike France, possesses laws which robustly protect indigenous peoples. Tribal lawyers filed a new

lawsuit over the new sale, and a Paris court held a hearing in the case Tuesday. The judge will issue a verdict Friday, three days before the first sale. The Hopis’ French lawyer, Pierre Servan-Schreiber, remains optimistic that this time the judge will rule in their favor. His argument highlights an existing French law which prevents the sale of tombs, and gives these objects a special,

protected status. “The Hopis are saying that not everything can be sold and bought. The day that there are no more Katsinam masks, the Hopi tribe will exist no more,” Servan-Schreiber argued in court. “It’s a cause worth fighting for. And like all good causes, you need to keep fighting. The Hopis have been massacred, slaughtered, pillaged and for years deprived of what was

theirs, and at some point this has to change,” ServanSchreiber said. The tribe has said it believes the masks, which date back to the late 19th and early 20th century, were taken from a northern Arizona reservation in the early 20th century. Curiosity about one of the oldest indigenous tribes whose territory is now surrounded by the U.S. state first led collectors and researchers there. “The Katsinam [masks] represent cultural heritage, objects of tribal and ceremonial

Exam: U.S. results remain stagnant Continued from Page A-1 which is coordinated by the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, or OECD. Most results come from a sampling of scores from countries as a whole, but in China it was given in select regions, and the results in the financial hub of Shanghai, one of the country’s richest cities, are by no means representative of China’s overall education level. Shanghai’s per-student funding at the middle-school level is nearly four times the national average, and prosperous Shanghai families spend thousands of dollars more per year for tutoring. The Education Department’s National Center for Education Statistics released the results. The test, given every three years to 15-yearolds, is designed to assess students’ problem-solving skills. U.S. scores on the PISA haven’t changed much since testing started in 2000, even as students in countries like Ireland and Poland have shown improvement and surpassed U.S. students. Irish Education Minister Ruairi Quinn said the results reflected improvements among Ireland’s lowerachieving students, even as the country’s top students underperformed compared to those in other countries. In Britain, scores were about the same as three years ago, prompting debate about why the country has not improved despite increased spending on education. The nation did better than the United States in math and science but was not among the top performers in any subject. “Since the 1990s, our performance in these league tables has been at best stagnant, at worst declining,” said Britain’s Education Secretary Michael Gove, adding that the results “underline the urgent need for our reforms.” Gove’s ruling Conservative Party and the opposition Labour Party both blamed

each other’s policies for the results. Meanwhile a business organization said Britain has fallen behind in part because of “historic complacency” and a lack of focus on achievements and results compared to Asian countries. “Countries with an unrelenting focus on the quality and rigor of their education system will be the ones who win,” said Mike Harris at the Institute of Directors. Duncan, too, called for an increased focus on education. “We must invest in early education, raise academic standards, make college affordable and do more to recruit and retain top-notch educators,” he said. Tom Loveless, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, cautions about reading too much into the results from Shanghai, which also dominated the test in 2009. The students tested are children of the elite. They are the ones allowed to attend municipal schools because of restrictions such as those that keep many migrant children out, he said. “The Shanghai scores frankly to me are difficult to interpret,” Loveless said. “They are almost meaningless.” But Jack Buckley, commissioner of the National Center for Education Statistics, said U.S. officials have not seen any evidence of a “biased sample” of students tested in Shanghai. If the entire nation was included, he said it’s unclear what the results would show. Tucker said Shanghai has worked hard to bring migrant children into its schools and has put an emphasis on improving teacher quality — a factor helping to drive its test scores. In the education community, Finland has drawn notice for its past test performance, but this year its average PISA score dropped in all three subjects, most pronounced in math. Finland’s students did better on average than those from the United States.

Wurzburger: $33K raised in 2010 race Continued from Page A-1 funds despite submitting at least 600 contributions. Santa Fe voters approved public financing to take big money out of elections, among other reasons. The money was first available to council candidates in 2012, but this is the first time mayoral candidates can qualify. The three mayoral candidates who were certified as “participating candidates” and eligible to receive public financing are city councilors Patti Bushee and Bill Dimas and former state Democratic Party Chairman Javier Gonzales, a former county commissioner. Roman “Tiger” Abeyta, former county manager and executive director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Fe, sought public financing but announced Saturday that he was dropping out of the race. Wurzburger said she signed her declaration of candidacy for the office of mayor Tuesday. “Given the political revelations of the last few weeks, I think this race is far from decided,” she said. “We are

rites. It’s the Hopis’ collective property — they have never belonged to anyone, have no commercial value,” said Leigh Kuwanwisiwma, director of the Hopi Cultural Preservation Office, in a statement. Drouot auction house disagrees. “These are extremely beautiful artifacts. They belong to a private collector and have not been stolen. The fact this collector wishes to sell them here in Paris shows that the city is seen as the world leader in the sale of primitive art,” Eric Geneste of the Drouot auction

quite confident that there is a path to victory for me. But my immediate challenge is to quickly raise $60,000 to finance the campaign so that I can compete with those who have received public financing.” Wurzburger has worked as a self-employed construction consultant as well as a travel planner promoting Santa Fe as a destination for creative tourism. She has a solid fundraising track record. In her 2010 council campaign, Wurzburger raised more than $33,000, far more than any other council candidate. Wurzburger said raising $60,000 would be difficult but not impossible. “I have a letter already out to my supporters asking their opinion on whether they will indeed continue supporting me running in view of not qualifying for public funds, and also asking whether they are willing to continue to commit personal funds to my candidacy.” Contact Daniel J. Chacón at 986-3089 or dchacon@ sfnewmexican.com.

house said, recalling that in the April sale, the 70 masks sold for some $1.2 million. In addition to the 32 Hopi masks, Drouot will sell a Zuni altar taken from a private temple from the New Mexicobased tribal community, as well as three two-meter (6½-foot) Native American frescoes. The only other existing frescoes of this type are exhibited in New York’s Museum of Modern Art. It is unclear if the Zunis altar is also considered too sacred to sell, and the tribe wasn’t available for comment.

Detained vet advised hated guerrilla fighters American being held in North Korea linked to covert unit in 1950s By Foster Klug

Just in time for the Holidays! Two new UPS Store locations in Santa Fe to help you!

The Associated Press

SEOUL, South Korea — An 85-year-old U.S. veteran being held in North Korea spent his war years there in one of the Army’s first special forces units, helping a clandestine group of Korean partisans who were fighting and spying well behind enemy lines. Now South Koreans who served with Merrill Newman, who is beginning his sixth week in detention, say their unit was perhaps the most hated and feared by the North and his association with them may be the reason he’s being held. “Why did he go to North Korea?” asked Park Boo Seo, a former member of unit known in Korea as Kuwol, which is still loathed in Pyongyang and glorified in Seoul for the damage it inflicted on the North during the war. “The North Koreans still gnash their teeth at the Kuwol unit.” Some of those guerrillas, interviewed this week by The Associated Press, remember Newman as a handsome, thin American lieutenant who got them rice, clothes and weapons during the later stages of the 1950-53 war but largely left the fighting to them. Newman was scheduled to visit South Korea to meet former Kuwol fighters following his North Korea trip. Park said about 30 elderly former guerrillas, some carrying bouquets of flowers, waited in vain for several hours for him at Incheon International Airport, west of Seoul, on Oct. 27 before news of his detention was released. Newman appeared over the weekend on North Korean state TV apologizing for alleged wartime crimes in what was widely seen as a coerced statement. Park and several other former guerrillas said they recognized Newman from his past visits to Seoul in 2003 and 2010 — when they ate raw fish and drank soju, Korean liquor — and from the TV footage, which was also broadcast in South Korea. Newman’s family has not been in touch with him, but he was visited at a Pyongyang hotel by the Swedish ambassador, his family said in a statement, and he appeared to be in good health, receiving his heart medicine and being checked by medical personnel. His family hasn’t responded to requests for comment on his wartime activities. Jeffrey Newman has previously said that his father, an avid traveler and retired finance executive from California, had always wanted to return to the country where he fought during the Korean War. Newman served in the U.S. Army’s 8240th unit, also known as the White Tigers, whose missions remained classified until the 1990s. His military records obtained

Why did he go to North Korea? The North Koreans still gnash their teeth at the Kuwol unit.” Park Boo Seo, a former member of the clandestine Kuwol unit through a Freedom of Information Act request show he served on active duty from September 1950 until October 1953, much of it in Korea, then he was a reservist for nearly four years. The records show Newman reached the rank of first lieutenant when discharged and had received several medals including a Korean Service Medal with two bronze service stars. After attending officer candidate school, documents show he quickly rose from platoon leader to executive officer, then company commander. He is also listed as completing an infiltration course. In 1953, he was sent to study at military intelligence school before returning as an infantry unit commander. He was qualified in various weapons including 75 mm rifles and carbines. Retired Col. Ben Malcom said he served in Newman’s unit during a different period and didn’t know him. But he later wrote a book about their work detailing how the U.S. supplied weapons, ammunition, food and American advisers to an anti-communist guerrilla force in North Korea. He said some were outfitted with North Korean military uniforms complete with weapons and identification cards to work as spies. Others were trained as paratroopers. Malcom said his openness about the unit’s work during the war, including a book, a History Channel documentary and

many interviews, would preclude him from even considering visiting North Korea. “I would never go back to North Korea,” he said. “They know me.” But another veteran from the unit, Mickey Parrish, 83, in Jacksonville, Fla., who also didn’t remember Newman, said he didn’t think that their service in what was the Army’s first special forces unit 60 years ago would be cause for additional concern if visiting North Korea. In his televised statement, Newman said he trained guerrillas whose attacks continued even after the war ended, and ordered operations that led to the death of dozens of North Korean soldiers and civilians. He also said in the statement he attempted to meet surviving Kuwol members. The former guerrillas in Seoul also said Newman served as an adviser, but that most of the North’s charges were fabricated or exaggerated. Newman oversaw guerrilla actions and gave the fighters advice, but he wasn’t involved in day-to-day operations, according to the former rank-and-file members and analysts. He also gave them rice, clothes and weapons from the U.S. military when they obtained key intelligence and captured North Korean and Chinese troops. “The charges don’t make sense,” said Park, 80.

Detroit bankruptcy ruling cuts pensions to shed crushing debt By Ed White

The Associated Press

DETROIT — A federal judge ruled Tuesday that Detroit can use bankruptcy to cut employee pensions and relieve itself of other huge debts, handing a defeat to the city’s unions and retirees and shifting the case into a delicate new phase. Judge Steven Rhodes, who wondered aloud why the bankruptcy had not happened years ago, said pensions can be altered just like any contract because the Michigan Constitution does not offer bulletproof protection for employee benefits. But he signaled a desire for a measured approach and warned city officials that they must be prepared to defend any deep reductions. “This once proud and prosperous city can’t pay its debts. It’s insolvent,” Rhodes said in formally granting Detroit the largest public bankruptcy in U.S. history. “At the same time,

it also has an opportunity for a fresh start.” The ruling came more than four months after Detroit filed for Chapter 9 protection. Rhodes agreed with unions and pension funds that the city’s emergency manager, Kevyn Orr, had not negotiated in good faith in the weeks ahead of the July filing, a key condition under federal law. But he said the number of creditors — more than 100,000 — and a wide array of competing interests probably made that “impossible.” Detroit “could have and should have filed for bankruptcy long before it did. Perhaps years,” the judge said. The decision set the stage for officials to confront $18 billion in debt with a plan that might pay creditors just pennies on the dollar and is sure to include touchy negotiations over the pensions of about 23,000 retirees and 9,000 workers. Orr says pension funds are

short by $3.5 billion. Rhodes promised that he would not “lightly or casually” sign off on just any cuts. The city has argued that bankruptcy protection will allow it to help beleaguered residents who for years have tolerated slow police responses, darkened streetlights and erratic garbage pickup — a concern mentioned by the judge during a nine-day trial that ended Nov. 8. Before the July filing, nearly 40 cents of every dollar collected by Detroit was used to pay debt, a figure that could rise to 65 cents without relief through bankruptcy, according to the city. Orr praised the judge’s ruling and pledged to “press ahead.” He also acknowledged that pensions would be a sensitive issue because they represent a “human dimension” to the crisis, with some retirees getting by on less than $20,000 a year.

Syrian refugees face another harsh winter in camp By Jamal Halaby

The Associated Press

ZAATARI CAMP, Jordan — Cranes are lifting trailers into place and tents are being packed away as international aid workers rush to winterize a Syrian refugee camp in Jordan — trying to avoid a repeat of last year when three days of torrential rain turned the massive site into a muddy swamp. Warm clothing, blankets and electric heaters are being prepared for distribution to the desert camp’s 120,000 residents, mostly women and children. In January 2013, howling winds tore down some tents, and flooding piled more misery on those who fled Syria’s civil war. Hundreds were displaced

from their temporary shelters in the Zaatari camp. Exposed to freezing temperatures, some refugees attacked aid workers at a food distribution center, injuring a dozen before being dispersed by Jordanian riot police. Aid workers said they have a better winter plan this year. A drainage system was set up to dump floodwaters outside the camp, and efforts are being made to keep the refugees warm and dry, said Kilian Kleinschmidt, who runs Zaatari for the U.N. refugee agency. “We may be a little late, but we feel we’re on top of things,” added Kleinschmidt, nicknamed “the mayor” of the camp. More than 560,000 Syrians have fled to Jordan since

the uprising against President Bashar Assad broke out in March 2011. Activists say more than 120,000 people have been killed in the civil war. As the fighting increased in recent months — especially in southern towns — the number of refugees has risen. Throughout the region, about 2 million Syrians have crossed into neighboring countries, including Turkey and Lebanon, to escape the bloodshed. The cold and wet January weather makes conditions for them miserable as well, and similar preparations by aid workers are underway elsewhere. In Zaatari, which is 10 miles south of the Syrian border, many of the refugees’ plastic tents will be replaced in the

coming weeks with prefabricated trailers donated by Gulf Arab states, said Andy Needham, a press officer with the U.N. refugee agency. “It is the key step to keeping people safe and warm during winter,” he said Tuesday, adding that at least 1,000 have been set up in the past four weeks. Needham blamed the slow pace on delays by Jordanian contractors. Electric heaters and bottles of gas will be distributed to households soon, he said. As Needham spoke, dozens of women and children, many of them barefoot, gathered around U.N. officials and pleaded for trailers. When their appeals turned into shouting, police moved in, dispersing them.

Train engineer ‘nodded’ before deadly wreck YONKERS, N.Y. — An engineer whose speeding commuter train ran off the rails along a curve, killing four people, nodded at the controls just before the wreck, and by the time he caught himself it was too late, a union official said Tuesday. William Rockefeller “basically nodded,” said Anthony Bottalico, leader of the rail employees union, relating what he said the engineer told him. “He had the equivalent of what we all have when we drive a car,” Bottalico said. “That is, you sometimes have a momentary nod or whatever that might be. How long that lasts, I can't answer that.” Rockefeller's lawyer did not return calls. During a lateafternoon news conference, federal investigators said they were still talking to Rockefeller, and they wouldn't comment on his level of alertness around the time of the Sunday morning wreck in the Bronx.

After the administration’s claim Sunday that starcrossed healthcare.gov had been repaired with “private sector velocity,” and the site’s relatively smooth functioning on Monday, Obama administration officials moved with aerospace-sector velocity to celebrate meeting their selfimposed deadline. “We feel confident about the site working now as it was intended,” Jennifer Palmieri, the White House communications director, told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd on Monday morning, following the claim by Jeffrey Zients, who led the website turnaround, that “night and day” improvements had been made. Press secretary Jay Carney announced that the site had weathered 375,000 visitors in the first 12 hours of Monday. He called it “significantly improved” and said it was functioning “effectively for the vast majority of users.” Carney spoke of a “vast improvement” and said the White House had reached its goal that “the vast majority of users are able to access the site and have it function effectively.” ABC News’ Jonathan Karl needled him. “Is it mission accomplished?” Carney knew better than to raise that banner. “We believe we made the important progress that we set out to make,” he said. Conveniently, figures

W

C leaked Monday indicated that 100,000 people signed up for insurance on healthcare.gov in November, quadruple October’s dismal result. Democratic lawmakers came out of hiding and spoke of the improvements with a spirit that had eluded them in the weeks since the website crashed on launch. But the real gauge of health care.gov’s improvement was Republicans’ response — or lack thereof. When the House returned from Thanksgiving recess on Monday afternoon, the GOP speakers on the floor essentially ignored the website, instead returning to their earlier denunciations of Obamacare overall and President Obama in general. Rep. Virginia Foxx of North Carolina yammered on about the employer mandate. Rep. Ted Poe of Texas likened the administration’s nuclear deal with Iran to the 1938 Munich pact. Rep. Michael Burgess of Texas complained about the health care exchanges. And South Carolina’s Joe Wilson criticized Obama’s job-creation record. The issue that had been the Republicans’

rallying cry for the previous eight weeks suddenly vanished. Carney was right not to claim victory. The rollout of Obamacare this fall, particularly the president’s broken promise that people who like their health plans would be able to keep them, has damaged Obama’s credibility, probably permanently. Many people — including young voters who disproportionately supported Obama — have lost their catastrophic-coverage plans and now must pay significantly more to get new, bigger plans. And it’s still not certain that the health care exchanges at the heart of the law will be viable. But fixing the website after its embarrassing launch means that opponents of the Affordable Care Act have lost what may have been their last chance to do away with the law. And supporters can rule out the worst-case scenario: Obamacare isn’t going away. Even some conservatives have begun to tiptoe away from an opposition that looked much like sabotage. Last week, Rep. Jack Kings-

ton of Georgia, a Senate candidate, told a local radio station, Z Politics, that “a lot of conservatives say, ‘Nah, let’s just step back and let this thing fall to pieces on its own.’ But I don’t think that’s always the responsible thing to do. … I think we need to be looking for things that improve health care overall for all of us. And if there is something in Obamacare, we need to know about it.” In the White House briefing room, too, there was a change in tone. The death watch for Obamacare had been suspended and the conversation turned to other possible problems: Will healthcare.gov be ready for a surge in enrollments later this month? Why hasn’t the administration started a campaign to direct more people to the site? “You now say it’s working with private-sector velocity,” said Fox News’ Ed Henry. “Can you reasonably keep up that pace in the days ahead?” “The answer,” Carney said, “is yes.” Follow Dana Milbank on Twitter @milbank.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Looking for energy in the wrong places

I

read with dismay the article about the potential of harvesting methane hydrates from the Arctic ice and other ocean locations (“Energy’s future may lie in sea ice,” Nov. 30) for the world’s energy needs. Although the project sounds exciting and certainly tempting for huge energy corporations to pursue, I wonder why they aren’t interested in following a more sane, and more readily available path, and go to work developing solar technology as our energy future! “Too expensive, too slow to develop,” some say. Do they actually think that collecting and transporting methane from sea ice will be quick, easy and cheap? Old Mr. Sun sits there patiently waiting for the fossil fuel folks to come to their senses and start making full use of this free gift that beams down on us daily.

Instead, I recommend Congress passes the bill cutting the SNAP program by $40 billion and amend it to increase minimum wage to $15 per hour. That way, employers, stockholders and customers will pay for a true living wage, and the number of persons needing food stamps will fall dramatically. It will mean a slight increase in some of our purchases at Wal-Mart or Starbucks or Kmart, but the federal government would be out of subsidizing low-wage employers (It is estimated that public assistance to McDonald’s workers alone amounts to $1.2 billion a year). When our most profitable corporations are required to pay decent wages, the workers will not need SNAP. Charles E. Hauser, MD, DLFAPA

all us perplexed about what is happening at one of Santa Fe’s finest institutions — Santa Fe Community College. In a split vote, the college board fired its president, Dr. Ana “Cha” Guzmán for just cause. What that cause is, of course, we don’t know. The board would not say. Guzmán was hired after a six-month nationwide search back in July 2012. Outgoing President Sheila Ortego was quoted as saying of her successor: “I’m confident that Dr. Guzmán has the strength and the savvy to continue the work we’ve begun.” Guzmán came to SFCC after 11 years as president of Palo Alto College in San Antonio, Texas, starting in September 2012. There, at least, she had staying power. Here, trouble began surfacing earlier this year. The college’s governing board reported in August that faculty members had complained about Guzmán’s style. She did not value their opinions enough and moved too quickly to remake the structure of the college. We don’t support top-down leadership and believe faculty voices should be heard. Yet faculty members were outraged over a president who reduced the size of administration and gave faculty across-the-board raises, the sorts of reforms most faculty and staff would support. Perplexing indeed. Even with the complaints — mostly anonymous and lacking specificity — the board split 3-2 on whether to terminate Guzmán’s contract. New board member Kathy Keith, who voted to oust the president, said the college cannot succeed divided. She is right, but giving Guzmán the boot with a split decision cements the division, at least in the short term. One board member is so incensed over Guzmán’s firing that she is offering to resign. Because Guzmán was fired for cause, her $196,000-a-year salary has been stopped immediately. Guzmán, as is her style, is not going quietly. She has promised to sue the board for breach of contract. We urge all parties involved to settle this quickly, putting the interests of the college staff and students first. While we still don’t know why Guzmán was fired — and surely, the board can be more specific — it’s clear that she would be unable to do her job in the current climate. The college needs to either present a solid case for her ouster, or pay her the year’s salary she is owed. They had better be correct — or Guzmán will walk away with a taxpayer-financed bundle. Going forward, the board must examine its hiring search to see where it went wrong. Surely, if Guzmán is a terror-inducing leader, so fearsome that no one can speak out because of retaliation, those tendencies would have surfaced in the 11 years she spent at Palo Alto College. For this relationship to go so wrong so quickly, the hiring team failed (or, the board is incorrect in its assessment). Either way, as trustees look for a new leader for SFCC, they must learn from their mistakes. The community college is one of the more trusted institutions in this town. Voters support construction bonds. Regular people take classes or use the facilities there. The community college is beloved. An expensive, nasty court battle could turn that support into scorn. Settle this, quickly.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Dec. 4, 1913: Washington, D.C. — Opponents of woman suffrage appeared before the House rules committee today to argue why a committee on woman suffrage should not be created by the House. The delegation was headed by Mrs. A.M. Dodge, of New York, who yesterday was re-elected president of the national association opposed to women suffrage. Speakers for the opponents declared working women were opposed to the franchise because they would lose more than they would gain. This was in answer to the statement of the suffragists that the working women needed the franchise and were strongly in favor of it.

People view a roadside memorial on Monday at the site of the auto crash that took the life of actor Paul Walker and fellow fast-car enthusiast Roger Rodas on Saturday in Valencia, Calif. NICK UT/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

‘Fast & Furious 7’ production halted By Justin Pritchard The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES he movie studio that makes the Fast & Furious action franchise said Tuesday it was suspending production of the latest installment, while authorities pressed ahead with their investigation into how Paul Walker died. The Los Angeles County coroner’s office said autopsies were underway on the two bodies recovered from the fiery crash of a Porsche that Walker, a star of the mega-hit movies, and his friend were last seen riding in. Walker’s publicist has said the actor was the passenger when Roger Rodas’ Porsche Carrera GT crashed into a light pole and tree, then exploded in flames Saturday. The families of both men have provided dental records, which will permit not only formal identification of the bodies but also official word on whether Walker or Rodas was behind the wheel. Walker starred in all but one of the six Fast & Furious blockbusters. He had been on break from shooting the latest installment; Universal Pictures said Tuesday that production of Fast & Furious 7 is on hold. A spokesman declined to say when shooting would resume. A large portion of the film has been shot, but it is not yet complete. It’s scheduled for release in July. Universal Pictures has not announced how it will adjust the movie or handle Walker’s unfinished performance. While the neighborhood where the crash happened is known to attract street racers, law enforcement officials do not believe the Porsche had been racing another car.

Man accused of kidnapping, stalking wanted for soliciting Indiana minors Report alleges Catron gave alcohol, pot to two girls, tried to kiss them By Chris Quintana The New Mexican

A 21-year-old Santa Fe man accused of choking one woman and stalking another was accused in Indianapolis of giving alcohol and marijuana to pre-teen girls and then trying to kiss them last May, according to police reports. But most recently, Ryan Catron, 6 Carlito Road, is accused of kidnapping, battery and assault with intent to commit a deadly felony. Those charges stem from a 26-year-old woman’s claims to police that Catron choked and forced her into his car early Sunday. Ryan Catron The 26-year-old woman had marks around her throat and other bruises on her body. She told police that Catron is hearing impaired and that she helped him because she thought she was doing a “good deed.” And prior to that incident, Santa Fe police reports state that a female bartender at Cheeks, 2841 Cerrillos Road, said the 21-year-old stalked her in October. In that case, Catron was charged on counts of drunkendriving and being a fugitive from justice, but not with stalking. Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department records obtained by The New Mexican on Tuesday state in May, that Catron was going by the name of Nicholas de Leon in Indiana, and he used a Facebook account under the same alias. Police wrote that

Appeals court upholds decision to allow liquor sales near school City councilor wants to take issue to New Mexico Supreme Court By Daniel J. Chacón The New Mexican

City Councilor Carmichael Dominguez wants the city of Santa Fe to continue its legal fight to prevent an Airport Road convenience store from selling alcohol, despite a state Court of Appeals decision that the issue is out of the city’s hands. The appellate court has upheld a decision by the New Mexico Alcohol and Gaming Division director to allow liquor sales at the Giant convenience store, 5741 Airport Road. In a Nov. 14 opinion, the court said a District Court judge erred in reversing the director’s approval of a liquor license at the site. The city has argued that the store at South Meadows and Airport roads is within 300 feet of Sweeney Elementary School, which would require City Council approval of a waiver to allow a liquor license at the business. In 2011, the council denied a request from Giant’s parent company, Western Refining Southwest Inc., to transfer its liquor license from a store on Llano Street to the Airport Road location. However, state regulators approved the transfer on the grounds that the distance from the Airport Road commercial building to the school property is more than 300 feet, even though the store’s parking lot is within 300 feet.

La Cienega could get bus service under new five-year transit plan By Uriel Garcia

The New Mexican

The La Cienega community southwest of Santa Fe, which is about five miles from the nearest bus stop, could be among communities that get bus service if the North Central Regional Transit District approves suggestions in a new five-year service plan. A draft report recommends that the “blue bus” system connecting cities, pueblos and rural areas add to and modify its routes in Northern New Mexico.

The system, funded by money from grants and local taxes, already operates 20 rural bus routes, linking communities such as Questa to Red River, Española to Chimayó and Edgewood to Santa Fe. The report will be presented Friday to officials overseeing the transit agency, which covers the counties of Los Alamos, Rio Arriba, Santa Fe and Taos and the pueblos of Pojoaque, Ohkay Owingeh, Nambe, San Ildenfonso, Santa Clara and Tesuque. Santa Fe-based Southwest Planning and the KFH Group, a transporta-

tion research firm based in Maryland, compiled the report after gathering public feedback in a series of meetings in June. The transportation agency is inviting the public to attend the 9 a.m. Friday meeting in Española, said Jim Nagle, spokesman for the transit service. “We’re encouraging the public to come out and to give voice to some of these recommendations,” he said, “so the board can see there are members of the community where there’s a real need.” In addition to the creation of

Another recommendation is to expand weekend services that could potentially provide transportation to Bandelier National Monument, which could bring in more tourists, the report says.

MARCIA MENDOZA-ORTIZ Was reborn on November 29, 2013. Marcia was born on May 8, 1968 to Samuel and Gloria Mendoza. A silent illness took our loving wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend so suddenly. She fought to stay alive for a whole week to no avail. She was tired; she fought for every last breath. Marci leaves a heart broken family. Her husband, Greg Martinez; children: Jaylene Rodriguez (Ben), Adrian Ortiz, Feliz Larranaga, Gabriella Mendoza (Buggy), Isabella Mendoza (Bella), Ashley and Leah Martinez; grandchildren, her loving Jayda, Miranda and Lucas; her brothers: Adan Mendoza (April and Ciera), Emiliano Mendoza ( Janelle, Amanda, Jason, Marissa and Serenity), Julio Mendoza (Melissa, Jadon and Jericho; her madrina (godmother) Irene Angel; grandmother, Laura Mendoza; her loving dogs, Chico and Duke who she spoiled and loved dearly. She leaves behind an extended family of Mendozas and Romeros. Her friends, Gabe Sandoval, Ray Padilla, Betty Jo Tapia, Dorothy Encinias, Josephine Soveranes, Mikki Otero, Renee Archuleta, Maxine Sandoval, Melissa Valencia, Dora Marquez, to name a few (too numerous). Marcia was an employee with the City of Santa Fe. She worked at Sangre de Cristo Water Company, Santa Fe Police Department, Smith’s Grocery Store, Michael’s Arts and Crafts, and Big Lots. She raised 5 children on her own and our Lord sent her the love of her life, Greg. Marcia always made people smile and laugh. Her laughter was contagious. Her jokes were hilarious. If she teased you, that meant she loved you. Marci led an amazing life raising her children alone. They were her best friends and loved those "kick back" weekends, playing board games, watching movies, playing poker, dancing, snacking and bonding with her children. Family was her number one priority. She adored her father and mother, always taking care of their needs. She was so creative and took pride in her arts and crafts. Marci was attracted to the homeless. She made friends with homeless people she encountered and would give her last change to them. Our hearts are broken but she will no longer struggle trying to find out why she continued to get so ill. Now she knows, her illness was just part of her journey to meet our dear Lord and be at peace and finally now what true happiness is all about. She is already sending us little messages that she is at peace. We love you Marci. We shall be together again. A Visitation will be held at Santa Maria de la Paz Catholic Church on Thursday, December 5, 2013 at 5:30 p.m. with a Rosary to follow at 7 p.m. A Mass will be celebrated at Santa Maria de la Paz Catholic Church on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 1 p.m. Please join us for a celebration meal at the Elks Lodge following Mass and we ask that you wear purple in honor of her favorite color for all services: Rosary and Funeral.

MONTOYA SR. , ABELINO J. Abelino Jose Montoya Sr., age 92, passed away Saturday, November 30, 2013. Our beloved patriarch is now reunited with our mother, Lucille, in heaven. Abelino was born July 27, 1921 in Canon del Carro Village, Mora County, NM to the proud parents of Manuelita de Atocha and Jose Vidal Montoya. Abelino was the twelfth born of fifteen children, including two half-brothers. Abelino married Lucille Salazar July 29, 1938 and she passed away July 11, 1968. In 1969 Abelino married his second wife, Julianita Martinez. In 1934, Abelino’s family was faced with much hardship. His father, their only provider, passed away and Abelino and his brothers were unable to pursue their education as they had to work to provide for their mother and family. They provided for their mother for fifteen years until she passed away in 1949. At a very early age Abelino worked various jobs. He told his children stories of selling ice from a little red wagon, selling wood from the back of a truck, driving a taxi cab for Rimbert’s Taxi Co., and working as a bartender in Las Vegas, NM. A decorated World War II Veteran, Abelino was awarded the World War II Victory Medal, American Area Ribbon, Asiatic Pacific Ribbon, and European African Ribbon. Abelino was proud of his service to our country with our U.S. Navy as a Fireman First Class. He was able to serve our country from May 23, 1944 through his honorable discharge on December 12, 1945. He enjoyed talking about his travels and the people he met during that time. In 1945 he began work with the New Mexico State Highway Department as a heavy equipment transporter and carrier. In 1973, twenty-eight years later, he retired from the State Government, as a Highway Safety Supervisor. After 39 years of continuous employment, retirement brought Abelino leisure time to travel, fish and partake in other outdoor activities. Most importantly, he could sit back, enjoy, and watch his family grow. He moved to Albuquerque, NM in 1988. The last five months of Abelino’s life were medically challenging. After 40 years of retirement, Abelino is now in God’s hands. He acknowledged on many occasions, his greatest accomplishment in life were his children and their accomplishments. As a devoted, giving and loving father, Abelino kept a promise he made to Lucille before she passed away: He would keep the young children together which was was accomplished with determination, guidance, and love. Abelino was preceded in death by his first wife, Lucille E. Salazar Montoya; children, Dulia Louisa, Michael Matthew; sisters, Regina, Juanita, Eloisa, Alicia, Adelmira, Laura; brothers, Eloy I, Eloy II, Tomas, Teodocio, Alfredo, Vidal, Juan, Placido; two grandchildren; one great-grandchild; son-in-law, Fred Montoya. He is survived by daughters, Dulia Montoya, Teresa (Henry) Montoya Duran, Bernadette (Ben) Montoya Sena, Katherine Montoya Gallegos, Louisa Montoya, Manuelita (Dewey) Montoya Loveless, Frances (Dennis) Montoya Hawksworth, Hope Montoya; sons, Edward Montoya, David (Lisa) Montoya, Abelino (LouElla) Montoya Jr., Bobby (Loretta) Montoya, Les Montoya, John Montoya, Michael Montoya; forty-one grandchildren; forty-one great-grandchildren; twenty-five great greatgrandchildren; step-children, Mary Esther Loredo, Ida Muniz, Joe Roy Martinez, Virginia Martinez, Willie Martinez, Loretta Martinez, Victor Martinez.

B-3

Minors: Catron used Facebook account to make connections Continued from Page B-1 Catron used that account to befriend and request a meeting with a 12-yearold and a 13-year-old girl. The Indiana police document also states that the 12-year-old girl’s father let her spend the night at the 13-year-old’s home. Police wrote that at some point, the duo “snuck out” to meet with Catron at a park, and once there he gave the girls vodka and marijuana. Police said each girl claimed that

Catron had tried to kiss her, or that he had successfully kissed the other. The father told police he learned of the incident because his other daughter discovered a text message conversation between Catron and his 12-yearold. And in that exchange, Catron allegedly talked about “kissing and giving Juvenile 1 and Juvenile 2 more alcohol …” police wrote. The father also told police Catron mentioned the run-in with the minors on Facebook. It’s unclear when Indiana authorities

issued a warrant for Catron’s arrest, or if they ever had him in custody. But Santa Fe police found that he was the subject of an out-of-state arrest warrant after his arrest in October for drunken-driving, and the warrant included the child-solicitation charge. Catron was supposed to be on electronic monitoring, but a Santa Fe County spokeswoman said he never showed up to get his GPS device fitted. He is currently being held at the Santa Fe County jail in lieu of two cash bonds

worth a combined $110,100. Based on Internet searches, Catron was likely an athlete when he was younger. Articles from website USAdeafsports.org stated that in 2011, a Ryan Catron from Indiana made a national team for deaf cyclists. And MaxPreps.com stated that a Ryan Catron played varsity basketball for the Indiana School for the Deaf from 2008 to 2010. Ryan Catron also shares the same last name as Dennis Catron, a recently

hired teacher and boys varsity basketball coach at the New Mexico School for the Deaf. A New Mexican report states that Dennis Catron had experience in Indiana. Celina Westervelt, a spokesman for the Santa Fe Police Department, said Ryan Catron is the son of a Dennis Catron, who, according to an electronic monitoring document, served as Ryan Catron’s custodian in some degree.

Duke City seizes DWI vehicles ALBUQUERQUE — Albuquerque’s city attorney says the city can continue seizing vehicles of suspected drunken drivers because a New Mexico Supreme Court order applied to only one case. In its order last week, the Supreme Court refused to consider the city’s appeal of a lower court’s ruling that the city’s DWI vehicle-forfeiture ordinance is unconstitutional. However, City Attorney David Tourek said the Supreme Court’s order clearly applied to only the vehicle in one case, the Albuquerque Journal reported. Tourek said that means the city can still seize vehicles in other cases. Attorney Colin Hunter won the earlier case and said the city is on shaky legal ground by continuing to seize vehicles. It’s unwise, Hunter said, to operate the program “in the face of a clear ruling that the ordinance is unconstitutional on its face.” District Judge Clay Campbell ruled last month that Albuquerque’s ordinance was unconstitutional because it lacked due process by not having a meaningful appeals process for innocent owners. The judge said the ordinance doesn’t allow a vehicle owner to claim innocence if someone else was driving the vehicle and the owner didn’t know the driver would be drunk.

Girl pleads guilty to felony murder ALAMOGORDO — One of two teenage girls accused of killing their foster mother in 2011 faces 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to first-degree

felony murder. Alexis Shields, 17, entered her plea Monday in state District Court under an agreement with prosecutors. She is expected to be sentenced next year after a pre-sentencing report is completed. Shields was 15 when Evelyn Miranda, 53, was found dead at her San Patricio home on June 8, 2011. The case against the other girl, who also was 15 when Miranda was killed, has been put on hold pending an evaluation of her competency to stand trial, the Alamogordo Daily News reported. The girls were accused of stealing Miranda’s car, cellphone and computer. They were captured at a friend’s home in Carlsbad. Deputy District Attorney John P. Suggs said Shields will be sentenced as an adult and could have faced up to 30 years in prison if convicted without a plea agreement. With Shields pleading guilty and taking responsibility, she is now looking at a maximum of 15 years in prison, Suggs said. The plea agreement included dismissal of other charges, including conspiracy, robbery, kidnapping and tampering with evidence. Shields will serve her sentence in a state Corrections Department facility, the prosecutor said.

Court broadens arrest authority New Mexico’s highest court is giving police more leeway to make arrests without a warrant in domestic violence cases. The state Supreme Court on Monday ruled that police can make a warrantless arrest when it’s reasonably close to the scene of the domestic violence. State law allows a warrantless arrest at the scene of a domestic disturbance, and the justices broadened that to include a location near the place where the incident happened. The ruling overturned a state Court of Appeals decision that found Daniel Almanzar had been improperly arrested in 2007 across the street from the state fairgrounds in Albuquerque where he allegedly kicked his girlfriend during a quarrel. The justices said the arrest was lawful, allowing cocaine found during a search of Almanzar to be used as evidence. Staff and wire services

COLLEGE BASKETBALL

Lobos, Aggies set to square off The New Mexican

Two hot teams, but only one can continue the trend. The 211th meeting between in-state rivals New Mexico State University and The University of New Mexico pits two teams that are off to strong starts in the 2013-14 season. The Lobos head to Las Cruces for a 7 p.m. tip-off with a 5-1 mark so far, while the Aggies are trying to pick up steam again after Colorado State ended a seven-game winning streak on Saturday. Still, NMSU’s 7-2 record is the best start for the program

since the 2002-03 season. UNM is coming off a hardfought 73-66 win over the University of San Diego on Saturday in which every single point was scored by the starting lineup. In fact, that has been the theme for the Lobos this season. Their starting five have accounted for 70.2 points per game this season, while the bench has mustered an average of 15, and that average was higher before the win over the Toreros. If sixth-man Cullen Neal (7.5 points per contest) is factored into the scoring, then six

players account for 91 percent of UNM’s scoring. Contrast that with the Aggies, who have three reserves (Remi Barry, Renaldo Dixon and Kevin Aronis) who score at least 5 points per game. Leading the way for UNM is Los Alamos graduate Alex Kirk. The 7-foot junior is averaging a team-best 20.8 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks per game. He will be the focal point of an intriguing matchup with the Aggies’ 7-5 big man Sim Bhullar. The sophomore is averaging 10.3 points and 7.1 rebounds per game, while hitting 34 of 43 shots

from the field — a blistering 79.1 percent. Not to be outshone will be the guard battle between UNM’s Kendall Williams and NMSU’s Daniel Mullings, who is coming off a 24-point performance in an 85-83 loss to CSU and leads the team in scoring at 17.9 points per game. Williams went off for 28 points against San Diego, and was a perfect 16-for-16 at the free-throw line to set a single-game school record for perfection. For the season, Williams is shooting 92.3 percent (48-for-52) at the line.

CLASS AAA FOOTBALL

Cardinals quick to adjust to foes’ plans By James Barron The New Mexican

By Edmundo Carrillo

The pattern has been familiar for the Las Vegas Robertson defense during its run to the Class AAA football championship game. Start off slow, and give up a couple of long drives and a few points. Then, make in-game adjustments and slowly suck the life out of an opposing team’s offense. All the while, keep on hitting. The ninth-seeded Cardinals have shown a unique ability to adjust to opposing teams’ game plans not at the break, but as the game progresses. It’s a quality that might serve them well in the AAA title tilt with No. 3 Silver at 1 p.m. Saturday at Cardinals Field. The Cardinals gave up an opening touchdown to St. Michael’s in their AAA quarterfinal matchup, but they managed to slow down the high-powered Horsemen offense by the second quarter, building a 15-7 lead by the half, on their way to a 22-13 win. In the AAA semifinal against Taos, the Tigers scored on their first two possessions to fashion a 10-0 lead, and then Robertson slowly squeezed the juice out of the Tigers’ offense. Taos managed just 75 yards of offense after that and 58 in the second half as the Cardinals pulled out a 21-16 win. So what is it about the wizardry of head coach Leroy Gonzalez and the Cardinals coaching staff that toughens the defense so quickly?

’T

is the season for giving, and the Santa Fe High girls basketball team was in the giving spirit. The Demonettes committed 36 turnovers, which was more than what they scored as Albuquerque Volcano Vista cruised to a 61-31 nondistrict win in Toby Roybal Memorial Gymnasium on Tuesday night. Thirty-two of those turnovers were steals by the Lady Hawks, which said everything about the evening. “That’s mainly why we lost tonight, because of our passing,” said Santa Fe High senior Jackie Martinez. Santa Fe High was forced into bad passing by the Lady Hawks (2-0) from the start as they immediately applied full-court pressure on the Demonettes (1-1). “It’s no secret, we’re going to go out and press people and try to get them up and down the court,” said Lisa Villareal, Volcano Vista head coach and Española Valley graduate. “Tonight, it just worked in our favor.” As the Lady Hawks jumped on the Demonettes defensively, they also jumped off to a 10-0 lead and did not allow Santa Fe High to score until 6 minutes, 17 seconds into the game. Sabrina Lozada-Cabbage scored the Demonettes’ first four points to start her team-high night with 16 points. Two more points from Martinez would cut the Lady Hawk lead to 13-6 at the end of the first quarter. It seemed like the Demonettes were right back in the game, but the pressure by Volcano Vista quickly ate away at their stamina. “We weren’t expecting them to just come and jam it down right away,” Martinez said. “Our starting five got winded because we’re not used to that kind of caliber of basketball. That fast pace got us winded, and we didn’t have any time to catch our breath and it got us a little razzled up and our passes weren’t there at all.” Santa Fe High was getting picked off left and right — mostly by Hannah Fenshe, who led the Lady Hawks with seven steals — because the Demonettes did not remember basic fundamentals like the jump stop, something that head coach Elmer Chavez says the players work on everyday. “We weren’t doing the little things,” said Demonettes wing Kayla Herrera, who finished with zero points. “Our guards weren’t able to handle the pressure and we weren’t able to execute because we’re not used to

Coach’s positive attitude has made all the difference Santa Fe High’s Andrea Gonzales looks for an open player as she is covered by Volcano Vista’s Raven Herrera in the first quarter of Tuesday’s game at Santa Fe High.

that kind of pressure.” The Demonettes pulled within 24-14 at halftime. During the break, Chavez thought he figured out how to handle the pressure, but the Lady Hawks came out and outscored the Demonettes 37-17 in the second half. “I thought we had it adjusted, but we came out and got hurried again,” Chavez said. This game may have seemed like a nightmare for the Demonettes, but this is exactly what they wanted. The team is considered a contender for the Class AAAA title, and

with Volcano Vista possibly being a district opponent next year, Santa Fe High purposely wanted to play better competition. “We upgraded our schedule for a reason, so that we can get this kind of pressure,” Chavez said. “I think this is going to help us get better.” There were a lot of lessons for the Demonettes to take from this loss. Aside from all the passing errors, there is one part of the Santa Fe High psyche that will be changed.

Has good-bad gap with QBs widened? By Dave Campbell The Associated Press

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning warms up before Sunday’s game against the Chiefs in Kansas City, Mo. ORLIN WAGNER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Leslie Frazier shook his head and managed a slight smile when the question was posed. How hard, the Minnesota Vikings coach was asked, has this been to have to decide so many different weeks in a season about who the starter will be at the sport’s most important position? “It’s not a lot of fun,” Frazier said recently. “You’d like to say that this is your quarterback for

16 weeks, but we haven’t been in that situation.” This hardly brings solace for the head of a struggling team like Frazier, but the Vikings are far from the only bunch either sputtering along without a long-term solution or needing a stronger backup for a starter who’s hurt. Minnesota is one of five teams that, for a variety of reasons, have started three different quarterbacks this year. That includes Green Bay, which has started four. Four!

Whether due to failures to successfully draft and develop the next championship-capable franchise leader or procure and produce a reliable secondstringer, the league this year has seen a clear shortage of quality quarterbacks. “The supply and demand’s kind of out of whack,” NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said. Injuries are, of course, a significant factor. The Packers have won a Super Bowl behind Aaron

eroy Gonzalez is the epitome of cool. The Las Vegas Robertson football coach has never lost his head in the Cardinals’ rocky season that culminates Saturday in the Class AAA state championship game in Las Vegas. The Cardinals stumbled to a 1-3 start before beginning their current 7-2 stretch, with their latest win being a 21-16 decision over District 2AAA rival and champion Taos in the AAA semifinals. But what led to the Cardinals’ success late in the season is the happy-go-lucky demeanor of the head coach, which is where all Edmundo success starts for any high school Carrillo team. Commentary After Robertson’s 14-13 loss to Taos in a battle for the district championship Nov. 1, Gonzalez was all smiles — something unusual for a coach who just lost a nailbiter and district bragging rights in his own backyard. Most coaches would be in a bad mood after such a loss, but not Gonzalez. He attributed two late Robertson mistakes in that game — an interception by quarterback Nathan Lesperance and a botched punt return by Kenny Yara that sealed the win for the Tigers — to the fact that his players are teenagers and are prone to making mistakes. Again, this is something coaches rarely express after a loss, even if it may be true. There are a few ways a demeanor like this can have a positive effect on a football team. For one, football is a game of short memory, and not just the kind that is the result of severe head trauma caused by playing the sport. Whether you throw an interception, cough up a fumble or lose a game, you simply have to forget about it and move on. If you don’t, it can linger in your head and result in even costlier mishaps. If the head coach can shrug off a loss and not put any of the blame on any one player, then the team can do

Lady Sundevils win season opener SCOREBOARD The New Mexican

The post-Lauren Quintana Era began on Tuesday night for the Española Valley girls basketball team. The Lady Sundevils sputtered at times in their season opener against Taos, but were good enough to pull out a 57-32 win in Edward Medina Gymnasium. Española held a 12-11 lead after a quarter, but used a 22-6 scoring advantage in the second quarter to take a 34-17 halftime lead. “Overall, we had some good spurts,” said Ray Romero, first-year Española head coach. “We’d play real good for two or three minutes, but then we’d take two or three minutes off. We just need to get experience.” That’s because the Lady Sundevils are a young group, with 10 of the 13 players on the roster being sophomores and freshmen. It was a freshman, Alexis Lovato, who led the way for Española with 17 points, while sophomore Ashlynn Trujillo added 15. Taos’s Feliz Espinoza had 15 points to lead the Lady Tigers (0-2). SANTA FE INDIAN SCHOOL 53, WEST LAS VEGAS 50 Speaking of new eras, anyone who thought the Lady Braves were going to be pushovers in the JoJo Valdez era were given a wake-up call. SFIS outscored the Lady Dons 16-13 in the fourth quarter to break a 37-all tie to

give Valdez his first win as head coach. Junior point guard Kayla Joe had a teamhigh 20 points, six assists and three steals, while Victoria Lovato added 15. The Lady Braves also flexed some muscle in the paint, as Shaina Roanhorse had seven rebounds and Daniella Hall hauled in six. “We had some girls who we didn’t expect to get some good rebounds who did,” Valdez said. The Lady Dons (2-1) were led by Deanna Bustos’ 19 points, and Jaylyn Gutierrez added 11. ESTANCIA 49, SANTA FE PREPARATORY 37 The Blue Griffins started the game in a scoring slump, and never recovered from a 25-14 halftime deficit in Estancia. Prep (1-2) cut the lead to 34-26 entering the fourth quarter, but never could get closer than six the rest of the way. “We got a little momentum, but we were just two shots away from making it interesting,” said Anika Amon, Prep head coach. Alexis Mundt had 18 points and nine rebounds to lead Prep, while Joy Maran added 11. POJOAQUE 54, SOCORRO 20 The Lady Warriors were slowed by a bus breakdown, and they were slow to get out of the gate in a nondistrict game as the Elkettes built a 23-10 nondistrict lead at the half in Ben Luján Gymnasium. Socorro was even slower to respond in the third quarter as a 17-2 Pojoaque spurt made it 40-12. Leslie Gutierrez and Amanada Martinez led a balanced scoring attack for the Elkettes (3-0) with 10 points apiece as 11 of

12 players scored. “It was good,” said Ron Drake, Pojoaque head coach. “We played everybody equally tonight.”

MESA VISTA 50, EAST MOUNTAIN 25 The Lady Trojans (2-0) overcame a late arrival to Sandia Park and a sloppy first quarter to roll to a nondistrict win. Mesa Vista had 10 turnovers in the first quarter, but managed to fashion a 22-9 lead before the Lady Timberwolves hit a 3 to end the first half. That was as close as East Mountain got, as the Lady Trojans held their host to just 13 points in the second half. Ashley Alire had 23 points, eight rebounds and three steals, and Azalea Griego added 11 points and 11 steals. MORA 55, MCCURDY 15 As if two Pachecos weren’t enough, the Rangerettes discovered a third — cousin and freshman Monica Pacheco. She provide valuable minutes off the bench as Mora (3-0) jumped out to a 14-2 lead and upped the margin to 29-9 at the half of a nondistrict game in Sen. Joseph Montoya Gymnasium. “I think we’ve found a diamond in the rough because of [Destiny Pacheco’s] situation,” Mora head coach Mark Cassidy said, alluding to Destiny Pacheco’s injured left ACL that will leave her sidelined until January at the earliest. Brianna Pacheco had 16 points and 12 rebounds, while Gerty Herrera had 16 points and nine assists. Alannah Sanchez led McCurdy (1-2) with six points.

Rude: Team had sought a challenge Continued from Page B-5 “I think it humbled our girls tonight,” Chavez said. “Sometimes they come to practice and they think they’re the greatest team in America and they don’t work as hard as they should. This will humble them and make them work. I think our girls had a rude awakening.” This is not new territory for the Demonettes, as they

lost to Santa Fe Indian School last year 65-34 after an 18-0 start before they went on to make it to the AAAA semifinals. Regardless, things are going to be different at practice on Wednesday. “We’re not used to getting our butts whooped by that much, but I think it woke us up, and for some of us it’s going to make us come to practice and work harder,” Herrera said.

Isaac Valera gave Ira Harge an opening to remember — even if it was just to give the head coach of the Pecos boys basketball team a laugh. The 5-foot-7 Varela battled for the opening tip with Bosque School’s Gabe Chavez — all 6-4 of him. I still have that visual of Gabe and Isaac, and that is the funniest picture,” Harge said. It’s a sign of the times for the Panthers under Harge in his first year with the program. He and his team had the last laugh, as well. Pecos managed a 47-44 season-opening win in Louis G. Sanchez Memorial Gymnasium on Tuesday night. The Panthers pressured the Bobcats at every turn, and it helped them jump out to a 15-2 first-quarter lead. Bosque trimmed the margin to 22-16 at the half and even tied it for a moment in the third quarter, but Pecos took back momentum with a 35-28 lead entering the fourth quarter. Bosque never got any closer than the final score. Chris Vigil led Pecos with 17 points, while Isaac Varela added 11. Chavez had 17 points for the Bobcats, while Miles Horton scored 15. SANTA FE PREPARATORY 61, WEST LAS VEGAS 59 The Blue Griffins showed the mettle of a Class AA contender,

as they outlasted the AAA Dons in Gillie Lopez Memorial Gymnasium. Of course, they had to withstand a fourth-quarter comeback by the Dons, who trailed by eight with 5 minutes left before tying it with a couple of minutes left. Prep (4-0) retook the lead and held on as West Las Vegas missed a corner 3 that would have forced overtime. Francis Castillo y Mulert led the way for the Blue Griffins with 17 points, while Ian Andersson and Will Lenfestey each added 11. S.J. Bustos led West Las Vegas with 21 points and Miguel Sena had 11. MORIARTY 49, LOS ALAMOS 40 The Hilltoppers played with inspired intensity, but that couldn’t overcome the Pintos’ size advantage with 6-7 Jake Flaming. He scored 20 points as Moriarty (2-1) exposed the one weakness in Los Alamos’ defensive scheme. “We had [William] Steinkamp front him and we had back-side help,” Hilltoppers head coach Fil Dominguez said. “They adjusted by putting one of our smaller guys on the backside and they just threw over the top.” Flaming scored 20 points and the Pintos outscored the Hilltoppers 22-9 in the fourth quarter to erase a 31-27 deficit. Seth Drop had 14 points for Los Alamos (0-2), while Steinkamp added 11 and Skyler Veenis 10.

Cardinals: Coach says key is preparation Continued from Page B-5 “They put us in the right positions, and then we just have to succeed at it,” said junior safety Dominic Lucero. “We’re athletic enough to play with anyone.” Gonzalez, though, was thrown a curveball by Taos, as it came out in a wing formation and used Jonathan Cordova in a featured role with screens and sweeps to the Cardinals’ perimeter. But by the second quarter, those screen passes were stuffed and the Cardinals forced Cordova (or Lorenzo Rael or Isaac Gonzales) to

run farther outside to no avail. They were met by the sidelines or by a couple of defenders who rode them out of bounds. Gonzalez, who was the defensive coordinator during Robertson’s consecutive state championship teams in 2005 and 2006, said the ability to adapt game plans quickly comes from being prepared. “I don’t think people realize it, but we watch a ton of film,” Gonzalez said. “Not only our films, but films from when we were at [New Mexico] Highlands [Gonzalez and much of his staff were at NMHU from 2008-09]. What do these teams

do in a four[-man] front or with a seven technique? And we try to do that. We try to teach it.” That teaching has helped Robertson evolve into a tough defensive unit. Since a 50-0 loss to St. Michael’s on Sept. 21, the Cardinals have given up an average of 14.6 points per game. Over the last six games, that average has dropped to 9.3 points a contest, and no team has scored more than 16 points on the Cardinals in that stretch. By comparison, the 2005 Cardinals gave up 11 points per game — and that included a 38-21 season-opening loss at

Hobbs. The 2006 team allowed just 102 points all season for a 7.8 point average. Perhaps the biggest sign of maturity for the Cardinals was a new coverage Gonzalez implemented just as the playoffs began. It was what the Cardinals ran during those championship seasons. “When I said I was going to to that, the kids kinda got it in their heads that, ‘Coach trusts us to run what they ran,’ ” Gonzalez said. “So, I think that little bit really got them over the edge.” If anyone would know, it’s Gonzalez. He’s seen the pattern before.

Attitude: Coach sets example for players Continued from Page B-5 the same. Gonzalez’s cheery demeanor after the loss to Taos worked, as the Cardinals have won four straight games since then by a margin of 132-29. One of those wins was over No. 1 St. Michael’s, who beat the Cardinals 50-0 in September and ended the game in the opening play of the fourth quarter. Gonzalez’s attitude also does wonders for the players’ confidence. Several players

said after the semifinal win over Taos that they believed they had a championshipquality team even in the midst of their turmoil. The Cardinals obviously had confidence when they took out the Horsemen on their own field in a game with plenty of hard hits and personal foul penalties. It was almost as if that game in September never happened. The short memory effect was in full display in the Cardinals’ latest win over Taos,

as Robertson running back James Gonzales III lost two fumbles but still managed to rush for 143 yards. Gonzalez’s cool calm isn’t the only reason the previously written-off Cardinals are now playing in the state championship, but it is one of the biggest reasons. It just goes to show that when things don’t go your way, just be like Gonzalez. And do like Samuel L. Jackson says in Pulp Fiction: “… and when you do it, you do it cool.”

Tomlin apologizes for on-field foray

Tony Clark picked to run union

The Associated Press

The Associated Press

SAN DIEGO — Tony Clark has become the first former big leaguer to lead the baseball players’ union, pending a vote by the general membership. The MLBPA’s executive board voted unanimously Tuesday to appoint Clark to replace Michael Weiner, who died Nov. 22 of brain cancer. Clark was an All-Star in 2001 and played for 15 seasons with Detroit, Arizona, the New York Mets, New York Yankees, Boston and San Diego. He went to high school in the San Diego area and later played basketball at San Diego State. Clark says he intends to carry out Weiner’s vision and “to continue to bring our fraternity together.” NEW YORK YANKEES A person familiar with the negotiations says the New York Yankees have reached agreement with outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury on a seven-year contract worth about $153 million. Ellsbury, who helped Boston win the World Series this year, is the second major free-agent addition in the Yankees’ offseason rebuilding. He was to take a physical in New York on Wednesday, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized. The Yankees also had been negotiating with Shin-Soo Choo, who like Ellsbury is represented by agent Scott Boras. Earlier Tuesday, New York finalized an $85 million, fiveyear contract with All-Star catcher Brian McCann. MINNESOTA TWINS The Twins have finalized a $49 million, four-year contract with right-hander Ricky Nolasco, an expensive first step toward restoring a ragged rotation. The deal was announced Tuesday, six days after the 30-year-old agreed to terms. The contract includes a club option for 2018 that could become guaranteed. Nolasco made 33 starts last season for the Miami Marlins and Los Angeles Dodgers, going 13-11 with a 3.70 ERA over 199 1-3 innings with 165 strikeouts and 46 walks. He’ll move immediately to the front of Minnesota’s starting staff, which had a majors-worst 5.26 ERA this year. Over the last six seasons, Nolasco was tied for fourth in the NL with 77 wins. OAKLAND ATHLETICS In one whirlwind stretch of less than 24 hours, Billy Beane pulled off a trio of trades with three different clubs — and the general manager believes his bullpen will be benefit from it all. First, the Athletics acquired AL saves leader Jim Johnson from Baltimore late Monday as the replacement for All-Star closer Grant Balfour. Then on Tuesday, the two-time defending AL West champions traded for San Diego right-handed reliever Luke Gregerson in a swap that sent outfielder Seth Smith to the Padres. That move became an option after outfielder Craig Gentry was acquired from Texas earlier with outfielder Michael Choice going to the division rival Rangers. Oakland also is waiting on lefty Scott Kazmir’s physical to finalize a $22 million, two-year contract. CHICAGO CUBS The Chicago Cubs have hired 2002 AL Rookie of the Year Eric Hinske as their first base coach. The 36-year-old Hinske played 12 seasons in the majors. He came up with Toronto and later played in three straight World Series, winning championships with Boston in 2007 and the New York Yankees in 2009. MIAMI MARLINS A person familiar with the negotiations says catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia has agreed to a $21 million, three-year deal with the Miami Marlins. The person confirmed the agreement to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the contract had not been finalized. Under terms of the agreement, Saltalamacchia will make $6 million in 2014, $7 million in 2015 and $8 million in 2016. BOSTON RED SOX A person with knowledge of the negotiations says free-agent catcher A.J. Pierzynski is closing in on a one-year contract with the Boston Red Sox. The deal would be pending a physical. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the team hadn’t finalized the agreement.

NBA ROUNDUP

Pistons snap Heat streak The Associated Press

MIAMI — Kyle Singler scored 18 points to lead seven Detroit players in double figures, Andre Drummond had 18 rebounds and the Pistons Pistons 107 beat the Heat Heat 97 107-97 on Tuesday night to snap the NBA champions’ 10-game winning streak. Greg Monroe and Rodney Stuckey each scored 16 for Detroit, which got 15 apiece from Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings. The Pistons led by 18 before Miami got within three points in the fourth, but never trailed in the game’s final 47 minutes. Jennings sealed it with just over two minutes left, stealing the ball from LeBron James and setting up Monroe for an easy score. James and Michael Beasley each scored 23 for Miami. The Heat played without guard Dwyane Wade, the All-Star sitting for the fourth time this season to rest a sore knee. Miami shot a season-low 44 percent. 76ERS 126, MAGIC 125 (2OT) In Philadelphia, Michael Carter-Williams had 27 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists for his first career triple-double, and Thaddeus Young added 25 points and 12 rebounds to lead Philadelphia past Orlando in double-overtime. Carter-Williams got his 10th assist on a dish to Young late in the second OT to put the Sixers up 125-120. Evan Turner had 24 points for Philadelphia, which snapped a four-game losing streak. Arron Afflalo scored a career-high 43 points for the Magic and Glen Davis had a career-high 33. Victor Oladipo had 26 points, 10 rebounds

and 10 assists to join CarterWilliams as rookies with a tripledouble. Turner was whistled for his fifth foul with 12.1 seconds left in the first OT on Afflalo’s 3-point attempt. Afflalo made all three free throws, tying the score at 118. NUGGETS 111, NETS 87 In New York, Timofey Mozgov had 17 points and a careerhigh 20 rebounds in another superb effort by Denver’s bench, and the Nuggets raced by the Brooklyn Nets 111-87 Tuesday night for their seventh straight victory. Kenneth Faried and Jordan Hamilton each added 15 points for the Nuggets, who got 57 points from the NBA’s secondhighest scoring second unit. That wasn’t quite the 72 they rang up against Toronto on Sunday, but it was more than enough to dominate the third quarter against the shorthanded Nets. Denver outscored Brooklyn 31-15 in the period that has given the Nets season-long problems, putting it away with a 15-0 run midway through the quarter. CELTICS 108, BUCKS 100 In Boston, Jordan Crawford scored 25 points, Jeff Green added 18 and Boston avoided a third loss to struggling Milwaukee this season. Brandon Bass added 16 points and nine rebounds, Avery Bradley scored 15 and Jared Sullinger finished with 12 points as all five starters scored in double figures for Boston, which had lost two of three. The Bucks had just snapped an 11-game losing streak with a 92-85 win over the Celtics on Saturday in Milwaukee, but couldn’t quite rally from a 13-point deficit in the fourth quarter. GRIZZLIES 110, SUNS 91 In Memphis, Tenn., Jon Leuer scored a career-high 23 points, Ed Davis added 21 points and 12 rebounds, and Memphis made the best of a makeshift

lineup to defeat Phoenix. Leuer and Davis got plenty of playing time because of injuries to front-line starters Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. Leuer connected on 10 of 13 shots, Davis made 8 of 11 and seven players finished in double figures for Memphis, which shot 55 percent from the floor. MAVERICKS 89, BOBCATS 82 In Dallas, Dirk Nowitzki recovered from a rough start to score 25 points, including 14 in the fourth quarter, and the Mavericks kept Charlotte winless in Dallas. Nowitzki, who was 1 of 10 from the field in the first half, and Monta Ellis took over late after struggling most of the game. They scored the last 19 points to help the Mavericks outscore Charlotte 29-15 in the fourth. THUNDER 97, KINGS 95 In Sacramento, Calif., Kevin Durant had 27 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to their eighth straight win. The Thunder built a 17-point lead early in the fourth, but had to hold off the Kings and Isaiah Thomas, who scored 21 of his 24 points in the final period and missed a jumper with 1 second left that would have sent the game to overtime. Russell Westbrook had 15 points, eight rebounds and seven assists for the Thunder, who have defeated the Kings seven straight and 13 of 14. WARRIORS 112, RAPTORS 103 In Oakland, Calif., Klay Thompson made four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter to fuel an improbable comeback, Stephen Curry added a pair of shots from beyond the arc down the stretch and the Golden State Warriors rallied from 27 points down in the second half to beat the Toronto Raptors. Thompson finished with 22 points and seven assists, nearly matching Curry’s 27 and 10. David Lee added 18 points and eight rebounds for the Warriors.

No. 2 Arizona beats Texas Tech TUCSON, Ariz. — Freshman Aaron Gordon scored 19 points, Nick Johnson and Brandon Ashley added 18 each and No. 2 Arizona beat Texas Arizona 79 Tech 79-58 Texas Tech 58 on Tuesday night in the Wildcats’ first game since beating Duke to win the NIT Season Tip-off. Johnson made a career-best 4 3-pointers in 6 attempts. Ashley grabbed 10 rebounds, one shy of his career high. The Wildcats (8-0) scored the first 10 points of the game and led by 10 points after a sloppy first half. They were up by as many as 23 points in the second half. Arizona moved up two spots to second this week after its win over Duke last Friday. Kader Tapsoba and Jaye Crockett scored 11 points each for the Red Raiders (6-3) and Aaron Ross added 10.

Freshman Jabari Parker added 15 points to help the Blue Devils (7-2) regroup from last week’s loss to Arizona by grinding out a tough win against the Wolverines. Duke didn’t shoot the ball well early but frustrated Michigan’s offense, turning away every spurt and keeping the Wolverines (5-3) at arm’s length much of the game. NO. 21 UMASS 69, E. MICHIGAN 57 In Ypsilanti, Mich., Raphiael Putney scored 15 points, including two high-flying dunks in the final minutes, and Massachusetts won its first game as a ranked team since November 1998. NO. 23 IOWA 98, NOTRE DAME 93 In Iowa City, Iowa, Aaron White scored 20 points and Devyn Marble and Jarrod Uthoff added 17 each for Iowa.

win in 13 Big Ten/ACC Challenge games. WOMEN NO. 7 LOUISVILLE 91, MISSOURI STATE 49 In Louisville, Ky., Shoni Schimmel scored 14 points, Bria Smith added 12, and No. 7 Louisville cruised past Missouri State. Asia Taylor added 10 points and seven rebounds for the Cardinals (8-1), who played most of the game without senior guard Antonita Slaughter after she collapsed and was taken off the court on a stretcher early in the first half. NO. 9 BAYLOR 113, SAN JOSE ST. 73 In Waco, Texas, Odyssey Sims scored 29 points and had 13 assists to become the Baylor career leader in that category. NO. 13 LSU 83, INDIANA ST. 66 In Baton Rouge, La., Raigyne Moncrief had 22 points, nine rebounds, six assists and five steals for LSU. The Lady Tigers (7-1) shot 12.5 percent from behind the arc (1 of 8) but outscored Indiana State 54-24 in the paint. NO. 23 TEXAS A&M 72, SAN DIEGO ST. 35 In College Station, Texas, Karla Gilbert had 16 points and 11 rebounds for Texas A&M.

Who doesn’t love chocolate truffles? They are the essence of chocolate, and a sure-fire mood enhancer. Pop even one into your mouth and see if you don’t get happy. Given the richness of a chocolate truffle — a blend of chocolate, sugar and cream — it’s nice that chocolate has been found to be good for us. Still, assuming you wanted to jettison some of the calories in this treat without sacrificing a molecule of its lush flavor, where would you start? Cutting the chocolate or sugar would be a bad idea. Both are needed. But how about the cream? The trick to cutting cream is that you don’t want to sacrifice the creaminess of the truffle in the process. The solution? Chestnuts. This brilliant work-around was discovered years ago by Sally Schneider, the author of a great healthy cookbook called The Art of Low-Calorie Cooking. In fact, this recipe is my adaptation of Sally’s recipe for chocolate truffles. She found that roasted and pureed chestnuts provide a supercreamy texture for treats such as truffles. And because chestnuts don’t actually taste like much, they don’t compete with the truffle’s chocolate essence. Added benefits? Unlike most nuts, chestnuts are low in fat and high in complex carbohydrates. Of course, chestnuts — or at least those roasted on an open fire — have figured in Christmas lore for ages (and got a boost when Nat “King” Cole recorded his hit version of Mel Torme’s “The Christmas Song” in 1946). Peeled and roasted chestnuts are now widely available in grocery stores everywhere during the holiday season. That’s what I’ve used in this recipe. But be sure to properly simmer the nuts in water as directed in the recipe. This guarantees they’ll purée smoothly. You don’t want chestnut chunks in your truffles. SPIKED MOCHA CHESTNUT TRUFFLES Total time: 4 hours (25 minutes active) Makes 20 truffles 5.2-ounce package roasted and peeled chestnuts, medium chopped ¾ cup water ⅓ cup low-fat evaporated milk 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, medium chopped 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder, or 1 tablespoon instant coffee Pinch of table salt 2 tablespoons light corn syrup 2 teaspoons Tia Maria, Kahlua, Baileys, brandy or rum 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder Preparation: In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the chestnuts and water. Bring to boil, then reduce the heat to maintain a simmer, cover and cook until the chestnuts are very tender and all the water has been absorbed, about 30 minutes. Add the milk and heat the mixture until it just comes to a simmer. Remove the pan from the heat, add the chocolate, then recover the pan. Let stand off the burner until the chocolate is melted, about 3 to 4 minutes. Stir and transfer to a blender along with the espresso powder, salt, corn syrup and liquor. Blend until very smooth. Transfer to a bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap and chill until very firm, at least 3 hours. Form the mixture into small balls (about 2 teaspoons each) and roll the balls in the cocoa powder until they are coated, shaking off the excess. Chill until ready to serve. Will keep, refrigerated, for 2 weeks.

Spices perk up winter season with heady aromas, flavors By Tantri Wija For The New Mexican

I

t is no coincidence that just as flu season arrives, so do pumpkin spice lattes. In the depths of winter, as we rush from heated car to heated mall in our Uggs and knitted hats, our noses will inevitably catch a whiff of a particular wintry spiciness that immediately conjures images of sugarplums and shopping. The holiday season now has its very own flavor signature. It is alternatively called “pumpkin spice,” “holiday spice” or “Christmas spice,” and it consists of some combination of cinnamon, clove, orange peel, ginger, nutmeg, anise and allspice. It pops up in lattes, truffles, ice cream, pies, etc., but holiday spice transcends the merely edible, appearing as candles, body creams, perfumes and car air fresheners. If you try, it’s possible to smell nothing but that distinctive heady, cookielike scent until at least Valentine’s Day. Many of these spices function as effective food preservatives, an essential feature in the days before refrigeration and methylchloroisothiazolinone. Back in the days of jousting and leech-centric surgical practices, one could extend the life of one’s shank of mutton by curing it with salt and spices. After all, as they say, winter is coming, and Whole Foods did not yet exist. And besides, when one’s winter diet consisted largely of oldish meat and gooey pease pudding, one could use said strong spices to make food taste better (or taste like anything at all). But besides eliciting a warm feeling of amorphously childlike well-being, the spices included in the ubiquitous holiday blend are, to one degree or another, medicinal. This is of particular value when everyone around you insists on sneezing in your vicinity and then touching all available doorknobs. Most of these spices come from the Far East (where they do not have snow, but they do have colds), and that distinctive combination of spices found in everything from pumpkin pies to holiday air fresheners is very similar

to many blends of Indian chai. With spices, fresher is better, as their potency fades with age. And while they may be psychologically comforting, artificial “holiday spice” tinctures contain barely a shadow of the original ingredient and none of the medicinal properties. For the real thing, it’s best to go straight to the source. Some grocery stories carry bulk spices, and there are local specialty shops, like The Spice Lady and The Savory Spice Shop, where individual spices or blends can be purchased at their freshest. The Savory Spice Shop’s wares are all “gluten-free, nonirradiate, and free of caking agents,” manager Kate Wheeler said. The advantage to buying spices in bulk (besides lower prices) is that you can buy only what you need and keep it

WAYS TO ENJOY HOLIDAY SPICES u Gingerbread is, of course, the classic holiday spice cookie, but here in New Mexico, we also have the bizcochito, which is flavored with anise and cinnamon. Make your own (baked with lard, of course), or track down someone with an accommodating grandma to keep you stocked up until spring. u To keep your system humming during the Christmas Eve Farolito Walk down Canyon Road, carry a thermos of your holiday spices mixed into premium hot chocolate. Make your own, or visit Kakawa Chocolate House for one of their quasi-medicinal spiced elixirs.

fresh, and not end up with a 10-year-old jar of cloves in the back of the cupboard that you paid too much for to throw away. Most of the spices in the traditional holiday blend are considered, in Chinese medicine, to be “warming,” meaning effective against diseases caused by dampness and wet. Cinnamon is the inner bark of a cinnamomum zeylanicum tree, though only one variety is considered “true cinnamon,” sometimes called “ceylon cinnamon,” “Mexican cinnamon” or “canela,” with other varieties are sometimes designated as “cassia” or “Saigon cinnamon.” True cinnamon is antimicrobial and supposedly helps blood sugar regulation. According to Wheeler, it is also more subtle than the sometimes aggressively sweet cassia, and “has a citrus undertone to it, and pairs beautifully with chocolate and curries.” Allspice, the central ingredient in Jamaican jerk seasoning, is the unripe, dried berry of the pimento plant, and is antimicrobial and antifungal as well. Ginger, a rhizome that is more effective raw than powdered, has anti-inflammatory properties and can soothe the roiling stomach caused by overindulging at the Christmas buffet. Cloves improve digestion and help expel parasitic worms (should you have any). They’re also rolled into cigarettes in Indonesia, and if you stud an orange with them, you end up with a quintessential Christmas air freshener. Anise, the flavoring for absinthe and bizcochitos, helps reduce flatulence and gas buildup in the intestines. As for nutmeg, that fragrant brown powder in the shaker at the coffee bar, it was once considered important enough to trade for the island of Manhattan. Granted, at the time, Manhattan was not much more than a place for Lenape Indians to fish on weekends, and nutmeg was worth its weight in gold as it was thought at one time to cure the plague. It doesn’t, but in large enough amounts, it is hallucinogenic. Appropriate for the holidays. And certainly useful for fending off the panoply of colds and flus that assault us just in time for party season.

u To warm your guests during your holiday fête, simmer up a batch of mulled wine, winter’s very own sangria. Combine red wine with your holiday blend and some honey, and rein your spices using a tea ball. Simmer the mixture for about 20 minutes, and serve warm. u Or make your own pumpkin spice latte, and you can tell yourself you’re doing it for your health.

WASHINGTON — Pilots are becoming so reliant on the computer systems that do most of the flying in today’s airliners that on the rare occasions when something goes wrong, they’re sometimes unprepared to take control, according to aviation safety experts and government and industry studies. Increasing automation has been a tremendous safety boon to aviation, contributing to historically low accident rates in the U.S. and many parts of the world. But automation has changed the relationship between pilots and planes, presenting new challenges. Pilots today typically use their “stick and rudder” flying skills only for brief minutes or even seconds during takeoffs and landings. Mostly, they manage computer systems that can fly planes more precisely and use less fuel than a human pilot can. But humans simply aren’t wired to pay close and continual attention to systems that rarely fail or do something unexpected. “Once you see you’re not needed, you tune out,” said Michael Barr, a former Air Force pilot and accident investigator who teaches aviation safety at the University of Southern California. “As long as everything goes OK, we’re along for the ride. We’re a piece of luggage.” The National Transportation Safety Board will hold a two-day investigative hearing Dec. 10-11 on the crash of an Asiana Airlines jet that was flying too low and slow while trying to land at San Francisco International Airport last July. The plane struck a seawall just short of the runway, shearing off its tail and sending the rest of the airliner sliding and turning down the runway before breaking apart and catching fire. Three passengers were killed and scores of others injured. The hearing will focus on “pilot awareness in a highly automated aircraft,” the board said. Investigators want to know how the three seasoned pilots allowed a passenger jet with no apparent mechanical problems in near-perfect weather conditions to lose speed so dramatically that it was on the brink of stalling moments before the crash. The pilot flying the plane was attempting to land without use of the autopilot. Normally, the pilot in the second seat is supposed to have his eyes on the plane’s computer screens to monitor airspeed and other readings, rather than looking out the window. In this case, that pilot was a training captain who was grading the performance of the pilot flying the plane. The training captain told investigators he thought the plane’s autothrottle was maintaining engine power and thus speed, but discovered that wasn’t the case just moments before the crash. The autothrottle was “armed,” or made ready for activation, investigators said in briefings after the accident, but they left open the question whether it was engaged and in idle or another mode. Aircraft systems can have many modes, or settings, and perform quite differently depending upon the mode. Pilot “mode awareness” is one of the more common automation-related problems showing up in accidents and incidents, according to an automation study released last month by the Federal Aviation Administration. Mode changes occur frequently during flight, often without any direct action by pilots. If pilots aren’t continually paying close attention, they can lose track of which mode their systems are in. Pilots also make mistakes when selecting modes. Mode selection errors were cited in 27 percent of the accidents reviewed in the FAA study. Less than six weeks after the Asiana crash, a United Parcel Service cargo jet flying too low while trying to land in Birmingham, Ala., struck trees and then a power line before crashing into a hillside near the airport. Both pilots were killed. In that case the autopilot was on, and seconds before the crash there was a loud automated warning that the plane was losing altitude too rapidly, according to investigators. The investigation is continuing, but some safety experts see a possible link between the two accidents. “I think mode awareness is going to be very central in both investigations,” said John Cox, an aviation safety consultant and former accident investigator for the Air Line Pilots Association. “In both cases the airplane appears to have been properly maintained, everybody is properly trained. A lot of the focus is on how the crew operated the airplane so that it ended up with the airplane short of the runway.” The Asiana accident was the first fatal crash of a passenger airline in the U.S. since a regional airline pilot lost control of his plane during a landing approach in Buffalo, N.Y., in February 2009. In that crash, investigators found the two pilots weren’t closely monitoring airspeed and failed to notice when the speed began dropping rapidly. The first officer also made a programming error at the start of the flight that much later caused the plane’s automated stall warning system to go off even though the plane wasn’t on the verge of stalling. The startled captain responded incorrectly to the warning, and again to another automated safety system, sending the plane into a full stall. It plummeted to the ground, killing all 49 people on board and a man in a house below. There was nothing mechanically wrong with the plane, and the captain should have been able to regain control of the plane if he had responded correctly, investigators said. Such “loss of control” accidents accounted for 43 percent of fatal passenger airline and air cargo accidents over the five years ending in December 2012, according to the International Air Transport Association, which represents carriers around the world.

BREAKING NEWS AT WWW.SANTAFENEWMEXICAN.COM

Katie Maunder, left, reaches out to touch a replica of a mummy as Angel Ayala, 16, center, Tatyana Allen, 16, right, and Cache Ballard, 16, participate in the classroom segment of a special tour at the Penn Museum in Philadelphia on Nov. 25. The Penn Museum began offering touch tours in 2012 as part of an initiative to make its collections more accessible. JACQUELINE LARMA/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Hands-on approach By Kathy Matheson The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Angel Ayala has never been a big fan of museums. Blind since birth, the high school student says the exhibits are so sight-dependent that he can’t enjoy them. But he’s making an exception for the Penn Museum, an archaeology and anthropology center that offers touch tours for the blind and visually impaired. Ayala can now feel the eroded limestone of an ancient Egyptian sarcophagus and the intricate hieroglyphs on the statue of a pharaoh. “When I touch things, it’s my version of a sighted person’s eyes. It tells me way more than a person describing it would ever,” Ayala said. The institution, which is part of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, began offering the tours last year in an effort to make their extensive collections more accessible. Museums should serve the community at large, and that includes the unsighted as well as the sighted, said program coordinator Trish Maunder. “Just because a person has low vision or can’t see, doesn’t mean that they’re not completely interested in culture or learning about

ancient artifacts,” Maunder said. Most major U.S. metro areas have at least one museum that offers some type of handson experience, from touching objects with bare hands or gloves to feeling replicas, according to Art Beyond Sight, a group that makes visual culture accessible to the blind and visually impaired. Such accommodations began well before the Americans with Disabilities Act and have increased as museums “have transformed from institutions that house objects to institutions that work with audiences,” said Nina Levent, executive director of the New Yorkbased art organization. Museums that don’t offer tactile tours often have personal or audio guides for the blind. But Levent contends that developing touch components can benefit a wide range of visitors, including children’s groups and students with learning disabilities. “I’d be hard-pressed to think of an audience that does not want to touch,” Levent said. The Penn Museum has held hands-on tours twice each Monday — when the building is otherwise closed — for the past two fall seasons.

Ayala’s recent visit came during a field trip with about a dozen classmates from the Overbrook School for the Blind. The students got to feel a quartzite likeness of Ramesses II, a black basalt statue of the goddess Sakhmet and two stone coffins. Smaller reproductions of the pharaoh and deity were available for those not tall enough to touch the tops of the statues. Students sanitized their hands before feeling the pieces, which were preselected by conservators. Though thousands of years old, the artifacts shouldn’t be damaged by clean fingers and a light touch, Maunder said. The free tours include a classroom lesson on how Egyptians prepared a body for burial. Students jiggled a gelatin mold of the brain — which is removed during the mummification process — and handled facsimiles of relics found in tombs. They also felt ancient linen, smelled scented oils and touched a reproduction of a mummy. Overall, the museum is engaging with nearly 250 blind or visually impaired people this fall, up about 32 percent from last year, Maunder said. Educators are already planning next season’s curriculum on ancient Rome.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH Tension builds and creates greater motivation to complete a personal matter. You know that some of your ideas are great, but you get distracted easily. Tonight: Head home.

Grandma is not allowed to see kids Dear Annie: I have not shared a birthday, holiday or special occasion with my son for the past five years, since he married. He has two children now. We always have been close, but I’m so sad that my daughter-in-law won’t let me be a grandmother. Their first year of marriage, they alternated holidays and combined our families. When they had their first child, however, “Rhonda” said it was too much, and now all holidays are spent with her family. They are wonderful people, but she is not willing to share her toddlers’ time with her husband’s family, including his siblings. I do not get the privilege of babysitting or having the kids over to my house for the day. I am not allowed to pick them up or bring them places. I live nearby, but they never stop over. Rhonda is socially immature, and I believe she is naive as well as selfish. She holds all power and control and is judgmental and unkind. She gives every excuse to avoid us. Her family has tried to reason with her, to no avail. My son is terribly hurt by this and tries his best to include me for a short visit at least once a month. I am grateful, but not satisfied. I am fun-loving, happy, giving, appreciative and accepting. I make the most of whatever time I am allowed. But Rhonda is negative, self-centered and rude and does her best to spoil the visit. I’ve tried several times to discuss this with her, have prayed and have shared words of wisdom and scripture, but nothing breaks through. My son prefers to avoid a confrontation. Should I also give up? — Grandmother Missing Out Dear Grandmother: How sad that Rhonda denies her children the privilege of knowing all of their grandparents. Would your son be willing to bring the kids to your

Tonight: Visit with a loved one. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Be sensitive to your financial situation and where it could land you. You might want to jump on a sudden offer, but you seem to be restrained. Tonight: Your treat. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHHH You are in your element. A family member might test your decisions as of late. You’ll adjust your approach as a result of their attitude. Tonight: The world is your oyster. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH Saying less and listening more is a safer course for you to take. What you hear could be quite unexpected yet significant. . Tonight: Not to be found. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH Zero in on what you want. A friendship plays a strong role in the next few days. Make a call to a parent or older friend later today. Tonight: Don’t overthink a personal matter. Jacqueline Bigar

Today in history Today is Wednesday, Dec. 4, the 338th day of 2013. There are 27 days left in the year.

Hocus Focus

home for a visit without Rhonda? And if you can manage it, consider inviting the entire family, including Rhonda’s folks, to your place now and then. We also recommend you work on ways to warm up the relationship with Rhonda. Surely you can find something to admire about her and keep quiet about the rest. We hope, in time, she will realize that what goes around comes around. Dear Annie: My husband and I frequently go out to dinner with several other couples. One of the wives is a vegetarian That’s fine, but she sometimes makes a scene with the server. She argues about the way things are prepared and accuses the waitstaff of lying. It’s become quite embarrassing, and some of our other friends refuse to go out with her anymore. It recently happened again. My husband and I were mortified when she sent her meal back and accused the waiter of giving her the wrong dish. It ruined our night. I think we should say something, but my husband thinks it will ruin the friendship. Any suggestions? — Carnivore in Florida Dear Carnivore: It is not unheard of for restaurants to prepare vegetarian meals with chicken broth or beef stock without declaring it. However, it is rude to accuse the waitstaff of lying and cause a scene. We recommend you do a search in your area for vegetarian restaurants when socializing with this couple. Otherwise, let them know you won’t be going out to eat with them because it is obviously too stressful. Dear Readers: Sunday, Dec. 8, is The Compassionate Friends’ Worldwide Candle Lighting in memory of all the children who have died. Please light a candle in the evening at 7 p.m., local time, and remember them with love. For more information, log on to compassionatefriends.org.
