ki season in New Mexico officially opens in just two days, thanks to Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort. The Saturday opening is believed to be one of the earliest opening dates in the state’s winter sports history. But pulling off the early start hasn’t been easy. The crew at the quaint ski area in Vadito, N.M., has been making snow around the clock since mid-October.

PHOENIX — Arizona is in the midst of what seems like an intense election-year campaign: millions of dollars in spending, a barrage of negative TV ads and large amounts of outside money. The issue, however, has nothing to do with taxes, a hotbutton policy or anything on the ballot. It is about the future of rooftop solar power in a state known for its abundant sun-

shine and at a time when the industry is booming. The state’s largest utility, Arizona Public Service, has spent more than $3.7 million to convince the public that homeowners using solar panels are costing other customers money, and it wants utility regulators to OK a proposal it says would make the system more fair. The solar industry, on the other hand, has spent at least $370,000 on its own ads, arguing that the utility’s proposal would increase rates for those who use rooftop solar power and decrease competition. The Arizona Corporation Commission met Wednesday to discuss the issue, hearing testimony from a series of

residents who packed the room to have their opinions heard. Others who couldn’t get in the room testified via telephone, and some received applause as they extolled the virtue of solar power. “If you decide to vote on the side of the utility company, then we are going over to the dark side,” said Glendale resident Sophia Ross, a homeowner with a rooftop solar system. The outcome by the fivemember commission with final say over APS rates is being watched by utilities nationwide and could affect the solar industry’s future. That’s because utilities are pushing the same arguments

Despite rebukes by lawmakers over the past two years, Gov. Susana Martinez will once again move forward with legislation to hold back third-graders who can’t read at grade level. “We’ll be back in full force,” Public Education Secretary-designate Hanna Skandera said Wednesday, noting that the state’s children are losing ground. Because the state lacks such a policy, she said, New Mexico children actually rank 51st in the nation. Skandera’s comments came at the end of a full day of testimony about best reading practices, remediation, retention and intervention policies for students, which took place before the Legislative Education Study Committee in Santa Fe. The committee reviews policies and will draft bills for the upcoming legislative session, which opens Jan. 21, 2014. For the past three years, Martinez and Skandera have worked to create a retention and intervention bill that leaves the final say on whether a student moves forward or is held

Martinez seeks cash to draw nurses to state By Barry Massey
The Associated Press
Gov. Susana Martinez proposed Wednesday that New Mexico launch an advertising campaign to aggressively recruit nursing professionals from other states to help deal with a shortage of primary care providers. The governor plans to ask the Legislature to provide $220,000 next year for marketing directed at nurse practitioners to sell them on the advantages of New Mexico, which allows them more independence in providing medical care than many other states, including Texas. Nurse practitioners can operate their own clinics, don’t have to work under the supervision of a physician, and have the authority to prescribe medications and refer patients to specialists. Martinez also proposed to streamline the licensing system for nurses who move to New Mexico from the more than two dozen states, including California and Oklahoma, that

Tons of ivory to be crushed in Denver By Steen K. Paulson The Associated Press
OMMERCE CITY, Colo. — U.S. officials are destroying more than 6 tons of confiscated ivory tusks, carvings and jewelry — the bulk of the U.S. “blood ivory” stockpile — to support the fight against a $10 billion global trade that slaughters tens of thousands of elephants each year. Officials on Thursday will use rock crushers to pulverize the stockpile, accumulated over the past 25 years, at the National Wildlife Property Repository just north of Denver. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will donate the crushed ivory particles to a museum to be determined for future display. Officials showed off thousands of ivory tusks, statues, ceremonial bowls, masks and ornaments to be destroyed — a collection they said represented the killing of more than 2,000 adult elephants. The items were seized from smugglers, traders and tourists at U.S. ports of entry after a global ban on the ivory trade went into effect in 1989. “What is striking to me is the lengths that some commercial importers and smugglers will go to conceal their ivory,” said Fish and Wildlife Special Agent Steve Oberholtzer.
The message from Thursday’s crush likely will reach consumers more than the faraway poachers and smugglers targeted by governments across the globe. Elephant poaching is at an all-time high, thanks in large part to U.S. demand and growing demand in Asia. The British-based Born Free Foundation estimates that poachers killed 32,000 elephants last year. It says that black-market ivory sells for around $1,300 per pound. Most elephants are killed in Africa, where there are about 300,000 African elephants left. There are an estimated 50,000 Asian elephants found from India to Vietnam. Not everyone supported the ivory crush. Bob Weisblut, a co-founder of the Florida-based International Ivory Society, said he thought the ivory should be sold to raise money for antipoaching efforts. “A lot of this is beautiful art,” Weisblut said. “And it’s a shame to destroy it.” The ivory being destroyed didn’t include items legally imported before the 1989 global ban. “This is a way to say we are not putting a value on ivory. We’re putting a value on the lives of the elephants,” said Azzedine Downes, president of the International Fund for Animal Welfare, which works with U.S. agents to enforce animal protection laws.
In brief Doctors are told to get tough about weight ATLANTA — Next time you go for a checkup, don’t be surprised if your doctor gets on your case about your weight. The medical profession has issued new guidelines for fighting the nation’s obesity epidemic, and they urge physicians to be a lot more aggressive about helping patients drop those extra pounds. Doctors should calculate your body mass index, a weight-to-height ratio. And if you need to lose weight, they should come up with a plan and send you for counseling. The good news? By next year, most insurance companies are expected to cover counseling and other obesity treatments.
Boehner: House won’t deal with immigration WASHINGTON — Speaker John Boehner said Wednesday that the House will not hold formal, compromise talks on the Senatepassed comprehensive immigration bill, a fresh signal from the Republican leadership that the issue is dead for the year. The slow, relatively quiet death came more than four months after the Senate, on a bipartisan vote, passed a far-reaching bill that would provide a path to citizenship for th 11 million immigrants living in the country illegally and tighten border security.

Boehner, R-Ohio, reiterated that the House is focused on a piecemeal approach to dealing with the issue. But he declined to say whether lawmakers will consider any legislation this year or whether the issue will slip to 2014, when the politics of congressional elections further diminish chances of action.
Man to remove wife’s grave from front yard SCOTTSBORO, Ala. — An Alabama man has agreed to remove his wife’s remains from his front yard after a four-year fight to keep her grave next to the house where they lived together. James Davis testified at a court hearing Wednesday that he will hire a contractor to remove the body of his late wife, Patsy, and have it cremated. A judge still must approve the plan. The court ordered the 74-year-old Davis to remove the body after the city of Stevenson won a lawsuit arguing the grave amounted to an illegal cemetery and had to be removed.

Gay marriage is now legal in Hawaii HONOLULU — Gov. Neil Abercrombie signed a bill Wednesday legalizing gay marriage in Hawaii, the state that kicked off a national discussion of the issue more than two decades ago. Now, the island chain is positioning itself for a boost in tourism as people take advantage of the new law and the state provides another example of the nation’s changing views on marriage. “Done,” the governor said after quickly signing the measure.
Prince Charles ready for government pension
This piece by Jeff Koons titled Balloon Dog (Orange) sold for $58.4 million at Christie’s on Tuesday. Christie’s said Tuesday’s sale brought in more than $691.5 million, the highest total for any single auction in history.
LONDON — Prince Charles plans to claim the government pension he qualifies for when he turns 65 on Thursday, but he still hasn’t started the job he was born to do. The eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II has been heir to the throne since his mother became monarch in 1952, when he was 3. Palace officials said Wednesday that Charles will contribute the government pension to a charity that helps elderly people. The future king is entitled to about $175 per week because of his service in the Royal Navy.

NEW YORK — Records are meant to be broken, and they were with remarkable speed at Christie’s auction house on Tuesday night. In just six minutes, bids shot up to $142.4 million for a Francis Bacon triptych, making it the most expensive work of art ever sold at auction. World auction records also were set for 10 artists. But on Wednesday, a prized 1963 Andy Warhol painting Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster) that captures the immediate aftermath of a car crash sold for $105 million, shattering the record for the famed pop artist amid a spending frenzy at the high end of the art world. Sotheby’s said the sale brought in over $480.4 million. None of Wednesday’s buyers were identified. The Warhol record came just a day after the most expensive work of art ever sold at auction went for $142.4 million to conclude six minutes of feverish bidding at Christie’s. The hefty price tag for a 1967 Francis Bacon triptych called Three Studies of Lucian Freud shattered the previous world record — nearly $120 million paid for Edvard Munch’s The Scream at a 2012 Sotheby’s sale. Christie’s said the winning bid went to New York City’s Acquavella Galleries. It is believed that the gallery was buying it for an unidentified client. Over the past 10 days, auction houses around the world have presided over bids totaling nearly $2 billion for art and jewelry, Sotheby’s said. Christie’s said Tuesday’s sale brought in more than $691.5 million, the highest total for any single auction in history. Buyers from Asia, the Middle East and Russia play a big role in the contemporary art market, said Richard Feigen, an art dealer and collector whose Manhattan gallery has works spanning from the 14th century to contemporary art. “The demand for seminal works by historical important artists is truly unquestionable, and we will keep witnessing new records being broken,” said Michael Frahm, a contemporary art adviser and partner at the London-based Frahm Ltd. “This is the ultimate trophy hunting.” Richard Feigen, an art dealer and collector whose Manhattan gallery, Richard L. Feigen & Co., has works spanning from the 14th century to contemporary art. Christie’s said Tuesday’s sale brought in more than $691.5 million, the highest total for any single auction in history. “The sales sum up the state of the current market, which is very solid and price healthy at the top end of the market and less active and more volatile for midmarket works,” Frahm said.

In central Philippines, rush Syrian civil war prompts polio to ferry supplies, survivors vaccination effort for children By Diaa Hadid
By Carmela Cruz and Chico Harlan
The Associated Press
The Washington Post
TACLOBAN, Philippines — Even as the Philippines reopened two airstrips to help speed up the flow of aid Wednesday, parts of the typhoon-hit central region plunged deeper into distress, with gunfire cracking to ward off looters and survivors worrying that they would die before they received help. “We survived the typhoon, but this will kill us,” Mary Jane Garcia, 44, said at the crowded airport in the city of Tacloban, where she and hundreds of others begged for a flight out on a military transport plane. The ramped-up relief effort in the Philippines has brought aid to tens of thousands of victims of Typhoon Haiyan, but it has also exposed the vastness of this disaster — which spans several hundred miles of islands and includes areas yet to be accessed. Nearly six days after the storm ripped through the Philippines’s central islands, bringing with it a tsunami-like wall of water, the extent of the devastation is clear. Bloated corpses of people, pigs and dogs line the main streets. Towns are short on body bags. Roads are blocked. Fuel is almost impossible to find, even for aid workers with vehicles that could transport vital supplies. The disaster has reduced Tacloban, once a bustling provincial capital of 220,000, to a broken landscape of denuded hills and brown rot. Government buildings are abandoned and torn apart, and the stink of decay fills the air. With power out everywhere, miles of downed electrical wires have been repurposed as makeshift laundry lines, on which residents hang soaked remnants of clothing and bedding. Asked where she would be willing to relocate if she could secure space on a plane ferrying emergency crews and supplies, Garcia did not hesitate: “Anywhere.” Government officials say that more than 1,000 armed forces personnel have been deployed nationwide to restore order, and in Tacloban, police have imposed an evening curfew. But about 10 miles outside the city Tuesday, a mob ransacked a government building storing packages of rice, Rex Estoperez, a spokesman for the

Survivors rest in typhoon-ravaged Tacloban city, central Philippines, on Wednesday. VINCENT YU/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
National Food Authority, said in a telephone interview. The incident illustrated the problems with the hasty relief efforts, Estoperez said. The packages of rice were not piled securely, and when the mob entered the building, the rice bags collapsed, knocking over a wall and killing eight of the looters. The others in the mob walked out with whatever they could grab — thousands of sacks of rice, which they are trying to resell locally. “We’re asking the people who took the rice to share it with the victims instead of selling it and doing business,” Estoperez said. The Philippines has never conducted a relief operation of such magnitude, Jose Rene Almendras, a cabinet secretary, told reporters. There are some signs of progress. In the town of Ormoc, on the same island as Tacloban, aid workers say that the police presence is heavy and that security is not a problem. Two airports in the disaster zone reopened Wednesday, giving new options for transport planes, aviation officials said. Water-purification equipment was flown into Tacloban on Wednesday, and newly installed beacons and runway lights allowed for nighttime takeoffs and landings for the first time since the disaster. In a statement Wednesday, President Barack Obama encouraged Americans “who want to help our Filipino friends to visit whitehouse.gov/ typhoon, which offers links to organizations working in the Philippines and ways to support their efforts.” “The friendship between our two countries runs deep, and when our friends are in trouble, America helps,” said Obama,

noting a growing U.S. assistance effort. “U.S. ships, including the aircraft carrier USS George Washington, are on their way to the scene to help expand search and rescue operations, provide logistical support and medical care, and provide a platform for helicopters to move supplies to remote areas.” U.N. humanitarian chief Valerie Amos toured Tacloban on Wednesday and told reporters afterward that although a significant amount of material was brought in Wednesday, much more remains to be done. Her office has released $25 million in emergency relief funds, as countries around the globe are pledging to send millions in assistance. “The priority has got to be — let’s get the food in, let’s get the water in,” Amos said, according to The Associated Press. “We really need to scale up [the] operation.” Some Philippine officials are indicating that the death toll might be substantially lower than initially feared. Based on the latest government count, 2,344 are dead. President Benigno Aquino III told CNN on Tuesday that the final figure might not top 2,500.
TRIPOLI, Lebanon — Health officials are rushing to vaccinate millions of children from Egypt to Turkey, fearing a polio outbreak in Syria could spread as tens of thousands of refugees flee the civil war. The officials want to reach all children under 5 years old in seven vulnerable places: Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, the Palestinian West Bank and Gaza Strip, Turkey and Syria, about 22 million in all. The $30 million campaign by the U.N. and Arab health officials seeks to inoculate even those who already may have been vaccinated against the highly contagious virus that can paralyze or kill. “There is no choice: everybody has to be vaccinated. It’s not a matter of ‘I want to,’ [or] ‘I don’t want to.’ No. With polio there is no cure, you have nothing but prevention,” said Soha Boustani of the U.N.’s children’s agency, UNICEF. The scramble to vaccinate is palpable in neighboring Lebanon because of the sheer number of refugees overwhelming the health care system. This week, hundreds of health workers and volunteers were fanning out across Lebanon — especially in its vulnerable slums — offering free vaccinations and hoping to reach the country’s half-million children under age 5. U.N. officials established new vaccination points across Lebanon’s eastern and northern borders with Syria to catch children before they cross. Radio spots urge parents to
vaccinate their children in local clinics. The four-day campaign was due to end Tuesday but was extended until Friday because of the need to knock on nearly every door, said a Lebanese health official speaking on condition of anonymity because she wasn’t allowed to talk to reporters. Another vaccination campaign will start in December, health officials said. Syrian refugees in Lebanon said officials ordered them to bring their children for vaccination as a compulsory step to renewing U.N. identity cards entitling them to aid, but U.N. officials denied that. Inside Syria, in areas beset by fighting, health officials were trying to reach children in
mobile clinics, UNICEF said. The campaign began after the World Health Organization, a U.N. agency, confirmed 10 polio cases in the northeastern Syrian province of Deir al-Zour in November. On Monday, another three children in the area were found to have the virus. The WHO also found strains of the virus in sewage samples in Egypt, Israel and the Palestinian territories. Although Arab countries traditionally have high immunization rates of about 90 percent, tens of thousands of children were seen as vulnerable, said Mike Ryan, WHO’s polio response coordinator. The polio vaccinations did not guarantee full protection, which is why millions had to be inoculated again, Ryan said.

Council delays decision on mayor proposal By Tom Sharpe The New Mexican
The Santa Fe City Council late Wednesday began picking apart proposed amendments to the city charter aimed at giving the mayor more power. The council will take up the issue again Dec. 11, with an eye toward putting the proposals on the municipal ballot March 4. Still to be resolved is whether each of the proposed changes should be presented to voters as a separate amendment or whether all should be included together as a single amendment. The proposed amendments would authorize runoff elections, starting in 2016, if any winners in the races for mayor and City Council in the general election failed to win more than 50 percent of the votes. Although Mayor David Coss received 50 percent of the vote in 2006 and 58 percent in 2010, the
winner of the three mayoral elections before that received less than 50 percent — 39 percent for Debbie Jaramillo in a field of 12 candidates in 1994; 44 percent for Larry Delgado in a field of six in 1998; and 43 percent for Delgado in a field of four in 2002. Several years ago, Santa Fe voters endorsed having ranked-choice elections, also called instant-runoff voting, in which voters rank candidates in order of choice, rather than voting for a single candidate. But voting machines that can accommodate rankedchoice voting are not expected to be available until at least 2016. Other proposed amendments call for making the mayor’s job a full-time position, giving the mayor the power to appoint a city manager, city attorney, city clerk and members of the advisory commissions with consent of the governing body, allowing the mayor to vote on all matters, not just in ties, and giving the mayor the sole authority to remove some

public officials. Councilor Carmichael Dominguez was reluctant to endorse that sole authority Wednesday. “Allowing the mayor alone to remove city officials, I think, is a dangerous precedent,” he said. “It could open the door to potential misuse of power.” But Councilor Patti Bushee, who is running for mayor next year, pushed for moving up the proposal for giving the mayor a council vote, so that the elected mayor March 4 could begin exercising that power two months after taking office, rather than waiting until 2016 as originally proposed.

Solar: Utilities nationwide taking note of decision Continued from Page A-1 elsewhere, and a victory in Arizona could create momentum for their policies. Arizona Public Service says homeowners with solar panels are benefiting from the grid’s 24-7 power supply but avoiding much of the costs of maintaining power plants, transmission lines and the distribution system. Under the current system, homeowners are able to cut their bills by selling excess power at full retail price back to APS in a practice called “net metering.” Combined with using the power from the panels themselves, net metering can cut their bills by about two-thirds. APS says that effectively shifts the costs of operating the huge power distribution grid to homes without solar. It is proposing changes that would effectively cut that benefit by either charging more for power that homeowners with solar use or cutting what it pays for the excess solar power sent back to the grid. Existing solar installations would be exempt from the changes for 20 years. The solar industry says APS is worried it will lose revenue if solar continues to grow, and the company’s proposal would decimate the industry by making it a losing proposition to install new solar panels. The industry group, The Alliance for Solar Choice, said APS is misleading the public and just wants to boost its profits. It says APS’s cost-shift estimates of $1,000 a year for each solarequipped home — currently $20 million — leaves out a much larger benefit
that more than offsets that cost. The group cites a study it paid for that says savings on new power plants, reduced investments in new power lines and savings from meeting renewable energy standards actually will save APS $34 million in 2015. “APS is not a ratepayer advocate, and their arguments are absolutely incorrect,” said Bryan Miller, president of Alliance and vice president of public policy for solar company Sunrun Inc. “APS is just trying to eliminate competition.” APS spokesman Jim McDonald said the company has never seen anything like the solar industry ads, saying “they distort the facts, they mischaracterize our proposals and they tell lies about the company. We have to respond.” Many utilities across the nation are pushing the same argument as APS, as is the utilities’ national association, the Edison Electric Institute. Edison made a major television ad buy in the past week that echoes the APS arguments. APS has also poured money into two outside groups that don’t disclose the company’s role. The groups have in turn run negative TV ads against the solar industry. APS later acknowledged its donation to the groups. APS has about 20,000 homes in its service territory with solar panels and the company says 500 more are being added a month. A subsidiary of Pinnacle West Capital Corp., the utility serves 1.1 million home and business customers across Arizona. While APS has supported net metering as a way to boost the industry and meet requirements for
Nurses: 3,000 more needed Continued from Page A-1 aren’t part of a compact providing for multistate licensure for nurses. New Mexico faces a growing demand for medical services because of an aging population and expanded insurance coverage under a federal health care law. More than 200,000 uninsured New Mexicans are expected to gain medical coverage through an expansion of Medicaid starting in January and through an online health Susana insurance exchange. Martinez “By streamlining the requirePlans to ments for nurses seeking to streamline bring their talents and skills to New Mexico, we can further “the requireensure that more New Meximents for cans, especially in rural and nurses seekunderserved areas, will have ing to bring access to the high quality of their talents health care our families and and skills to communities deserve,” Martinez said in a statement. New Mexico.” In preparation for the start of the 2014 legislative session in January, the governor recently outlined several initiatives to help increase the number of health care professionals in the state. The federal government considers all but one of New Mexico’s 33 counties — Los Alamos — areas with a health professional shortage. A report by the Legislative Finance Committee earlier this year said state residents could face growing problems with access to medical care because of the need for 2,000 additional physicians, 3,000 registered nurses and 800 dentists. Linda Siegle, a lobbyist for the New Mexico Nurse Practitioner Council, said nurse practitioners are required in New Mexico to have advanced degrees and training beyond a fouryear bachelor’s degree in nursing. She said the proposed marketing campaign could help New Mexico. “Any education of the public about health care and their access to health care providers is a good thing,” Siegle said. She suggested New Mexico also needs to deal with problems that nurse practitioners can face in obtaining privileges from hospitals to admit patients and see them during their hospital stay. Hospitals make those decisions, and the rules vary from hospital to hospital, Siegle said.

renewable power, McDonald said the number of users is growing so fast it will soon be unsustainable. “We need to do it now while it’s very manageable,” he said of the proposed changes. “Later on it will be much more difficult.” The state’s ratepayer advocate recommends a small monthly fee imposed on APS customers to offset the costs of running the grid, rather than the change in net metering that APS wants. Catherine Wolfram, co-director of the Energy Institute at the University of California, Berkeley, said APS is right when it says solar users shift
costs to non-solar customers. She said utilities are worried about a vicious cycle — more rooftop solar panels means they have to raise other users’ prices, which drives even more people to solar. She also said the installations are more common in affluent areas, shifting costs to poorer customers. The APS proposal would in effect lower the “subsidies” for solar users and would surely make solar less affordable and cut demand for new installations, Wolfram said. “The viciousness of the fight indicates how high the subsidies have become,” she said.
Retention: Questions arise over costs of Florida reading initiative Continued from Page A-1 back in the hands of the state. The Legislature has never fully supported these efforts. As the state statute now stands, parents receive at least one free pass in refusing to allow a child to be retained. Recent data from the Legislative Finance Committee and Public Education Department, presented to the Education Study Committee on Wednesday, indicate that in school year 2011-12, there were 25,250 thirdgraders enrolled in New Mexico schools, and about 22 percent were at risk of being retained. In the end, just 287 were retained. The governor often has said that as many as 80 percent of New Mexico’s third-graders cannot read proficiently. Skandera said the bill she and Martinez will push will be very similar to last year’s bill, though the language will more clearly define “habitual truancy,” which refers to students who have missed more than 10 days of school in one school year. Skandera said those students will not be given a pass if they need remediation. The main attraction Wednesday was a presentation about the effects of Florida’s 10-yearold remediation and promotion policy, presented by Marcus Winters, an assistant professor at the College of Education at the University of Colorado and a Senior Fellow with the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research. Pulling data from several thousand students over a decade, Winters’ research indicates Florida students who were held back in the third grade made “substantial” academic gains through the seventh grade. He said he felt more
confident about his study than other such research because it utilizes “regression discontinuity.” That means he compared the later academic outcomes of third-graders from 2003 who barely passed the third-grade exam, and still moved forward, with the outcomes of those who barely failed the test, and stayed behind, based on the difference of just a few test questions. Thus, he said, the comparison is more “apples to apples” than the “apples to oranges” approach of studying the academic success of all students who were retained and all who were promoted. Winters’ research made it clear that Florida’s strong intervention measures — mandatory summer school, an additional 90 minutes of daily reading instruction, individual academic improvement plans and a “high-performing teacher” for students who were held back — made all the difference in whether they succeeded in school in later years. But several legislators who have voiced opposition to statemandated retention policies questioned whether remediation and intervention were the factors that led to higher achievement levels, rather than retention. Winters acknowledged as much: “I think it’s likely retention is playing a large role here, but I can’t prove it,” he said. Sen. Daniel Ivey-Soto, D-Albuquerque, asked Winters if his report included comparisons with any other states. When Winters said no, IveySoto suggested he find “a couple more state laboratories … to see if you get the same results.” Rep. Mimi Stewart, D-Albuquerque, asked Winters how much Florida has invested in

this program. When he said he did not know, she cited one study that suggested it was as much as $700 million each school year. “I sure wish we had $700 million a year to do these interventions,” she said. Over the years, analysts have suggested the cost per child for Florida’s efforts ranges from as low as $150 per child per year to several thousand dollars per student. One 2012 news report estimated the cost at $130 million per year. In past years, Gov. Martinez has offered up to $13.5 million in new money to support her plan in New Mexico. Several pro-retention members of the committee, including Rep. Dennis Roch, R-Texico, and Rep. Jimmie Hall, R-Albuquerque, said the state must set a “pressure point” for schools to ensure that kids know how to read before moving to the next level. Skandera noted that Tennessee, which has been rising in national education rankings, recently passed legislation allowing the state to hold students back. Winters said he will continue to study Florida’s plan, including its impact on graduation rates and whether retention stigmatizes a child. Asked about reports indicating that students who are held back are more likely to drop out of high school, he said that is more true of eighth- and ninthgraders than of third-graders.
Charges: Reasons for rise unclear Continued from Page A-1 Reasons for the increase were not immediately clear. Immigration prosecutions across the nation have risen sharply during the Obama administration. But New Mexico had seen declines the previous three years. At the current pace, the center projects the district will have prosecuted an estimated 6,544 cases by the end of the federal fiscal year, which ended September 30 — more than at any time since at least 1986, the earliest numbers available. U.S. Justice Department data for September were not yet available. “It’s not surprising that immigration prosecutions are up,” said Sue Long, a co-author of the report and a statistics professor at Syracuse University. “What was surprising was how different the patterns were …particularly in New Mexico because it had been declining for years and then it shot up.” New Mexico ranked fourth overall in total immigration prosecutions, behind the Southern District of Texas (Houston) with 31,000, the Western District of Texas (San Antonio) with 22,970, and Arizona with 21,000, according to the report. The increase in New Mexico came as two other districts bordering Mexico fell. Arizona saw the nation’s biggest drop, with 22 percent fewer prosecutions, and the Southern District of California saw a 13 percent decrease. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Mexico said it couldn’t immediately comment on the data, and the Federal Public Defender Organization for New Mexico didn’t immediately return a phone call. The numbers don’t necessarily mean more undocumented immigrants are coming through New Mexico. When an immigrant is caught entering the United States illegally in New Mexico, the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol classifies the person as entering through the El Paso sector. Long said it’s up to the Office of the U.S. Attorney to determine how and where it wants to prosecute. The lead charges against the immigrants in New Mexico’s judicial district are re-entry of a deportee, with 2,974 charges, and illegal entry, with 2,822, according to TRAC’s report. Nationwide, illegal entry was the top charge, with 50,683 recorded prosecutions, the report states. A total of 90,806 immigration prosecutions have been registered nationally so far, and the report predicts that at that pace, up to 99,000 prosecutions will be reported by the end of the fiscal year, about a 7.7 percent increase. The percentage increase in New Mexico surprised some immigrant rights groups that have considered the state immigrant friendly. Juan Carlos Deoses, a leader with New Mexico Dreamers in Action, a group advocating for immigration reform, said it’s shocking to know New Mexico had the fastest growth in criminal immigration prosecutions. Marcela Diaz, an organizer with Somos Un Pueblo Unido, an immigrant workers rights group, said it was surprising to find that Arizona’s percentage declined while New Mexico’s percentage increased dramatically. “Basically, they’re continuing to criminalize immigration,” she said. “We can’t stress enough that what the federal government likes to call criminal aliens are family members who are contributing to our economy, and they’re being criminalized.” U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, the lead investigative agency in the criminal immigration prosecutions, contributed 95 percent of the total number of cases in New Mexico, according to the report. Long said immigration enforcement agencies such as Customs and Border Patrol have received more funding and staffing under the Obama administration, which could explain the increase in cases. She added that if an immigrant is found guilty of the criminal charges, he or she could be deported. Contact Uriel J. Garcia at 986-3062 or ugarcia@ sfnewmexican.com.

Regulations delayed 45 years after first recommendation By Joan Lowy
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — After a drunken driver on a California highway back in 1968 slammed into a bus carrying passengers to Las Vegas, Nev., killing 19, investigators said a lack of seat belts contributed to the high death toll. But 45 years later, safety advocates are still waiting for the government to act on seat belts and other measures to protect bus passengers. Over the years, the National Transportation Safety Board has repeated its call for seat belts or some other means to keep passengers in their seats during crashes involving the large buses used for tours, charters and intercity passenger service. About half of all such motorcoach fatalities are the result of rollovers, and about 70 percent of those killed in rollover accidents were ejected from the bus. The board also has repeatedly recommended stronger windows that don’t pop out from the force of a collision and help keep passengers from being ejected, and roofs that withstand crushing. Those recommendations are nearly as old as the seat belt recommendation. No requirements have been put in place, even though all have long been standard safety features in cars. Hundreds of motorcoach passengers have died and even more have been injured, many severely, since the board made its initial recommendations. Victims have included college baseball players in Atlanta, Vietnamese churchgoers in Texas, skiers in Utah, gamblers returning to New York’s Chinatown, and members of a high school girls’ soccer team en route to a playoff match. “In 1998, my father was launched like a missile [out] a bus window and landed on his head on pavement.

and cannot even take care of himself,” one woman wrote regulators, urging them to act. “This issue has been around for decades and it needs to change, now, before more people die or are severely injured like my father.” In 2009, the safety board said government inaction was partly responsible for the severity of injuries in a rollover crash near Mexican Hat, Utah, which killed 9 skiers and injured 43. Then-Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood promised the department would act to improve motorcoach safety, including requiring seat belts. Last year, when that still hadn’t happened, Congress wrapped bus safety improvements into a larger transportation bill, which was signed into law. Regulations requiring seat belts on new buses were due in September, but are still under review by the White House Office of Management and Budget. Other regulations on windows and roofs are due by Sept. 30, 2014, but safety advocates said they doubt the government will meet that deadline since it is less than a year away and regulations haven’t even been proposed, let alone made final. A spokeswoman for the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration didn’t reply to an Associated Press request for an explanation of the holdup. “Consumers have come to expect seatbelts in all motor vehicles; the regulator needs to get with the program and establish requirements that are long overdue. This is a simple issue: restraints save lives,” NTSB Chairman Deborah Hersman told the AP. The delays are “unacceptable,” said Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, co-author of the bus safety provisions. He noted “safety measures like seatbelts are neither exotic nor complicated, and they are not new.” Motorcoaches typically cost between $350,000 and $500,000, according to the American Bus Association. Seat belts would add about $13,000 to the price of a new bus. Safety advocates compare the buses to commercial airlines, which have even fewer deaths and injuries but still require passengers to buckle up. The nation’s fleet of 29,000
commercial buses transports over 700 million passengers a year, roughly equivalent to the U.S. airline industry. So far this year, 23 people have been killed and 329 injured in crashes, according to the organization’s unofficial tally. Commercial bus operators fought seat belts for decades, but opposition began to weaken after a high-profile accident in 2007 in which a bus carrying Ohio’s Bluffton University baseball team plummeted off a highway overpass near Atlanta. Five players, the bus driver and his wife were killed. Twentyeight others were injured, including some students who are still trying to put their lives back together seven years later, said John Betts of Bryan, Ohio, whose son, David, was among those killed.

Moccasin rock Pueblo woman’s campaign celebrates Native culture
By Uriel Garcia
The New Mexican
s a way to honor American Indian culture, a social media campaign is asking both Native and non-Native people across the the world to wear their moccasins all day on Friday. The campaign, known as “Rock Your Mocs,” started in 2011 as a Facebook event created by Laguna Pueblo 21-year-old Jessica “Jaylyn” Atsye as a way to show American Indian cultural pride. She created a Facebook fan page in August 2012 that has, as of Wednesday, attracted more than 13,500 “likes” from people around the world. People are encouraged to wear moccasins to their jobs, schools or anywhere else this Friday and post pictures on social networks such as Twitter. The campaign is asking that social media users label their photos with the hashtag #RYM2013 to identify participants on Twitter or Instagram. The reason why Atsye chose moccasins as part of the social media campaign is because
Matthew McQueen, a lawyer from Galisteo who has been involved with various environmental and community groups, announced Wednesday that he’s running for the Democratic nomination for the House District 50 seat. In a news release, McQueen, 46, took a swipe at Vickie Perea, a Valencia County Republican whom Gov. Susana Martinez recently appointed to fill out the term of the late Rep. Stephen Easley, who was a Democratic from Santa Fe County. “Despite the governor’s decision Matthew to appoint a right-wing politician McQueen that is more in line with her own agenda than the district’s values, I am ready to offer the residents of House District 50 the independent leadership that they have consistently chosen in the past,” he said. He promised to “provide the residents of House District 50 with an independent voice equal to that of the late Rep. Stephen Easley …” McQueen had applied for the vacant House seat after Easley’s death. However, the Santa Fe County Commission instead nominated another applicant, Ann Jenkins, a Democrat from Eldorado who is a retired information manager for a pharmaceutical company. Jenkins, who also was nominated by the Bernalillo County Commission, said at the time she might run for the House seat even if Martinez didn’t appoint her. McQueen is a member of the board of directors for the Santa Fe Green Chamber of Commerce, the Galisteo Mutual Domestic Water Consumers Association and the Galisteo Community Association. He has previously served on the Santa Fe River Commission, the Bureau of Land Management Resource Advisory Council, the Santa Fe County Open Land, Trails & Parks Advisory Committee and the Galisteo Community Planning Committee. McQueen, who has lived in New Mexico for 17 years, is married to Caroline Seigel, an art appraiser. The couple is expecting a child. Perea, 67, is a former Democrat who once served on the Albuquerque City Council. Perea, who had been considered a socially conservative Democrat, switched parties in 2004 over issues such as abortion. The expansive District 50 includes areas southeast of Santa Fe and stretches southward to include parts of Bernalillo, Valencia and Torrance counties. More than half the votes cast in the district last year came from Santa Fe County. Democrats in the district outnumber Republicans, with about 46 percent of registered voters to 33 percent as of Sept. 30, according to the Secretary of State’s Office. Easley in 2012 won the seat with nearly 56 percent of the vote. Easley died unexpectedly in August in the middle of his first term. Contact Steve Terrell at firstname.lastname@example.org.

she “realized a majority of Native and indigenous [people] share the same type of shoe and wistfully thought it would be cool,” she said in a news release. The event falls during National Native American Heritage Month, which started in 1990 as a monthlong celebration of American Indian culture. Atsye picked Nov. 15 as the date for the campaign as a coincidence, but local tribe members have been promoting the event as another option to honor Native culture. Even though it’s not an official schoolsponsored event, teachers at the Santa Fe Indian School have promoted the social media campaign to students. Christie Abeyta, a teacher at the school, said school administrators recently discussed making the “Rock Your Mocs” campaign an official school event for 2014. “I feel it’s important to have those type of events that showcase and celebrate indigenous [culture],” she said. “We are having our students having recognize the event.” Jo Christen, owner of the store Tee-Nee-

Ann Trading Company, 923 Cerrillos Road, said her store is available to sell moccasins to would-be event participants. “I always welcome anything that helps business,” she said. Atyse said she hopes the event “will reach even further worldwide and inspire cultural pride for Native Americans wherever they may be, as well as anyone who would just like to participate in a fun way of celebrating National Native American Heritage Month.” She added that she’s been contacted through Facebook by people from as far away as Canada and New Zealand who have told her they will participate in the campaign.

Brewer buys land for growing hops Santa Fe Brewing Co. has purchased land in Northern New Mexico where it plans to grow its own hops. The company announced that it bought a 7.5-acre Rio Grande riverfront property in Rinconada, northeast of Española, in September from a local tree farmer. The Santa Fe Brewing Hop Farm will grow traditional hops such as Cascade as well as native varieties that will be used for limited edition beers, according to a news release. “The property is not large enough to source all of our hops but we are excited to be self sus-

tainable for some of our beers,” company president Brian Lock said. “Our current plan is to use the hops for brewing wet hop beers. Wet hop beers use fresh hop flowers straight off the vine rather than the dried hops that are used in traditional beers. Using our own estate grown hops will set us apart from many other craft breweries.” While the hops farm won’t yield a usable crop until the fall of 2015, the farming process has already begun with the property being prepared for the planting of its first hop rhizomes this spring. Santa Fe Brewing, New Mexico’s oldest existing brewery, has distribution throughout New Mexico, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Nevada, Kansas and Missouri.
Gov. Susana Martinez is not enthusiastic about a plan that would require the state of New Mexico to pay $4 million a year for 10 years to help fund upgrades and maintenance of railroad tracks used by Amtrak’s Southwest Chief. Amtrak officials have said that three states along the historic passenger route between Chicago and Los Angeles would have to chip in for these expenses or the Southwest Chief will have to be rerouted. The other states are Colorado and Kansas. “We’re happy to discuss various proposals around this important issue,” Martinez said in a statement to The New Mexican on Wednesday, “but Amtrak was created and funded by Congress since its inception, and thus, any agreement should not stick the taxpayers of New Mexico with a large tab. According to the New Mexico [Department of Transportation], the state has never provided state funds for Amtrak service. We’re willing to work together on this issue, but any agreement needs to take that reality into account.” The possibility that the Southwest Chief might no longer run through Lamy was discussed Tuesday by a legislative committee. Amtrak officials have said that without a deal on track improvements the passenger route might be rerouted through Wichita, Kan., and Amarillo, Texas. That potential change would come if it can’t reach a new agreement by 2016 regarding track conditions, Amtrak has said. Among the historic passenger train stations that might be left obsolete is the one in Lamy, southeast of Santa Fe, which has been the stop for train passengers heading in and out of Santa Fe since 1879. Communities in northeastern New Mexico as well as Colorado and Kansas have been pressing for a costsharing agreement among the three states along with Amtrak and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad, which owns most of the tracks. A spokesman for the railroad told lawmakers Tuesday that BNSF has not made a decision on whether such an arrangement is feasible. The proposed new route for the passenger train would cut out western Kansas, Colorado and north-

Celina Westervelt, a spokesperson for the police department, said that at about 3 p.m. a truck hauling three vehicles flipped while making the turn onto I-25 from St. Francis Drive. Westervelt said the 54-year-old male driver and his 51-year-old wife — both from Colorado — were uninjured. The driver had not been cited as of 4:40 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. An alert issued by the city advised motorists seeking to access northbound I-25 to use Old Pecos Trail or Cerrillos Road. St. Francis Drive itself is not closed, but emergency crews dealing with the accident scene may delay traffic. The ramp was reopened at 6:30 p.m.

The Taos Town Council unanimously directed town staff to rescind the fee, which went into effect July 1. The fee applied only to anyone who lived outside the town boundaries and who wanted to check out library materials. The town instituted the fee after it said it did not have the funds to support library operations without making significant cuts. However, the $10 charge has only raised a fraction of what the town had anticipated in its first months. Rather than bring in the predicted $120,000, the

Next generation of biofuels is still years away By Jonathan Fahey The Associated Press
Dirty truth about ethanol Environmentalist Craig Cox looks at a corn field July 20 near Ames, Iowa. ‘This is an ecological disaster,’ said Cox, with the Environmental Working Group, a natural ally of the president that, like others, finds itself at odds with the White House. Higher corn prices due to demand for the crop to produce ethanol has led to more acres planted and stream pollution from fertilizer runoff. PHOTOS BY CHARLIE RIEDEL/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CORYDON, Iowa he hills of southern Iowa bear the scars of America’s push for green energy: The brown gashes where rain has washed away the soil. The polluted streams that dump fertilizer into the water supply. Even the cemetery that disappeared like an apparition into a cornfield. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. With the Iowa political caucuses on the horizon in 2007, presidential candidate Barack Obama made homegrown corn a centerpiece of his plan to slow global warming. When President George W. Bush signed a law that year requiring oil companies to add billions of gallons of ethanol to their gasoline each year, Bush predicted it would make the country “stronger, cleaner and more secure.” But the ethanol era has proven far more damaging to the environment than politicians promised and much worse than the government admits today. As farmers rushed to find new places to plant corn, they wiped out millions of acres of conservation land, destroyed habitat and contaminated water supplies, an Associated Press investigation found. Five million acres of land set aside for conservation — more than Yellowstone, Everglades and Yosemite National Parks combined — have been converted on Obama’s watch. Landowners filled in wetlands. They plowed into pristine prairies, releasing carbon dioxide that had been locked in the soil. Sprayers pumped out billions of pounds of fertilizer, some of which seeped into drinking water, polluted rivers and worsened the huge dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico where marine life can’t survive. The consequences are so severe that environmentalists and many scientists have now rejected corn-based ethanol as bad environmental policy. But the Obama administration stands by it, highlighting its benefits to the farming industry rather than any negative consequences. All energy comes at a cost. The environmental consequences of drilling for oil and natural gas are well documented and severe. But in the president’s push to reduce greenhouse gases and curtail global warming, his administration has allowed so-called green energy to do not-so-green things. In some cases, such as the decision

The numbers behind the ethanol mandate have become so unworkable that, for the first time, the EPA is soon expected to reduce the amount of ethanol required to be added to the gasoline supply. An unusual coalition of big oil companies, environmental groups and food companies is pushing the government to go even further and reconsider the entire ethanol program. Erosion is seen in a field of soybeans But the Obama administration stands by July 26 that was converted to row crops the mandate and rarely acknowledges that near Corydon, Iowa. green energy requires any trade-offs. “There is no question air quality, water quality is benefiting from this industry,” Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack told ethanol lobbyists recently. But the administration has never conducted studies to determine whether that’s true. Fertilizer, for instance, can make drinking water toxic. Children are especially susceptible to nitrate poisoning, which causes “blue baby” syndrome and can be deadly. Between 2005 and 2010, corn farmers increased their use of nitrogen fertilizer by more than a billion pounds.

NEW YORK — The first trickle of fuels made from agricultural waste is finally winding its way into the nation’s energy supply, after years of broken promises and hype promoting a next-generation fuel source cleaner than oil. But as refineries churn out this so-called cellulosic fuel, it has become clear, even to the industry’s allies, that the benefits remain, as ever, years away. The failure so far of cellulosic fuel is central to the debate over corn-based ethanol, a centerpiece of America’s green-energy strategy. Ethanol from corn has proven far more damaging to the environment than the government predicted, and cellulosic fuel hasn’t emerged as a replacement. “A lot of people were willing to go with corn ethanol because it’s a bridge product,” said Silvia Secchi, an agricultural economist at Southern Illinois University. But until significant cellulosic fuel materializes, she said, “It’s a bridge to nowhere.” Cellulosics were the linchpin of part of a landmark 2007 energy law that required oil companies to blend billions of gallons of biofuel into America’s gasoline supply. The quota was to be met first by corn ethanol and then, in later years, by more fuels made with nonfood sources. It hasn’t worked out. “Cellulosic has been five years away for 20 years now,” said Nathanael Greene, a biofuels expert at the Natural Resources Defense Council. “Now the first projects are up and running, but actually it’s still five years away.” Cellulosic makers are expected to turn out at most 6 million gallons of fuel this year, the government says. That’s enough fuel to meet U.S. demand for 11 minutes. It’s less than 1 percent of what Congress initially required to be on the market this year. Corn ethanol is essentially as simple to make as moonshine but requires fossil fuels to plant, grow and distill. For that reason, it has limited environmental benefits and some drastic side effects. Cellulosic biofuels, meanwhile, are made from grass, municipal waste or the woody, non-edible parts of plants — all of which take less land and energy to produce. Cellulosics offer a huge reduction in greenhouse gases compared with petroleum-based fuels and they don’t use food sources. In Vero Beach, Fla., for example, agricultural waste and trash are being turned into ethanol. In Columbus, Miss., yellow pine wood chips are being turned into gasoline and diesel. In Emmetsburg, Iowa, and Hugoton, Kan., construction is nearly complete on large refineries that will turn corncobs, leaves and stalks into ethanol. But despite the mandate and government subsidies, cellulosic fuels haven’t performed. This year will be the fourth in a row the biofuels industry failed by large margins to meet
Cellulosic makers are expected to turn out this year enough fuel to meet U.S. demand for 11 minutes. required targets for cellulosic biofuels. “Has it taken longer than we expected? Yes,” acknowledges Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. The Obama administration’s annual estimates of cellulosic fuel production have proven wildly inaccurate. In 2010, the administration projected 5 million gallons would be available. In 2011, it raised the projection to 6.6 million. Both years, the total was zero. The administration defended its projections, saying it was trying to use the biofuel law as a way to promote development of cellulosic fuel. But the projections were so far off that, in January, a federal appeals court said the administration improperly let its “aspirations” for cellulosic fuel influence its analysis. Even with the first few plants running, supporters acknowledge there is almost no chance to meet the law’s original yearly targets that top out at 16 billion gallons by 2022. “It’s simply not plausible,” said Jeremy Martin, a biofuels expert at the Union of Concerned Scientists. “2030 is the soonest you can anticipate it to be at that level.” The EPA is weighing how deeply to reduce targets for cellulosic fuels for next year and beyond. Biofuel supporters want higher targets to spur investment in new facilities. Opponents want low targets to reflect what’s available in the market and the chronic underperformance of cellulosic makers. Cellulosic’s great promise will likely be enough to keep it in the Obama administration’s favor. “There seems to be recognition among the administration that cellulosic fuels haven’t met the targets, but there’s still support for them,” said Timothy Cheung, an analyst at ClearView Energy Partners, a Washington research and consulting firm. Cellulosic fuels have lagged expectations for several reasons. For one, expectations were simply set too high. To attract support from Washington and money from investors, the industry underestimated and understated the difficulty of turning cellulose into fuel. Cellulose is the stuff that makes plants strong, and it has evolved over several hundred million years to resist being broken down by heat, chemicals or microbes. That makes it difficult to produce these fuels fast enough, cheap enough or on a large enough scale to make economic sense.
Industry takes aim at Associated Press ethanol investigation The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — A new Associated Press investigation, which found that ethanol hasn’t lived up to some of the government’s clean-energy promises, is drawing a fierce response from the ethanol industry. In an unusual campaign, ethanol producers, corn growers and its lobbying and public relations firms have criticized and sought to alter the story, which was released to some outlets earlier and started being published online and in newspapers Tuesday. The Agriculture secretary, Tom Vilsack, told the Des Moines Register that the AP project included “a number of inaccuracies and errors.” Vilsack said farmers were engaged in other conservation practices, including wetland reserve programs, wildlife habitat incentive programs and EQIP, a program that helps farmers adopt conser-
vation practices. The industry’s efforts, which began one week before the AP project was being published and broadcast, included distributing fill-in-the-blank letters to newspapers editors that call the AP’s report “rife with errors.” Industry officials emailed newspapers and other media, referring to AP’s report as a “smear,” ”hatchet job” and “more dumpster fire than journalism.” “We find it to be just flabbergasting. There is probably more truth in this week’s National Enquirer than AP’s story,” said Geoff Cooper, vice president of research and analysis for the Renewable Fuels Association in a press call with reporters Monday criticizing the investigation. The economic stakes for the industry are significant. Congress is working on legislation to do away with the corn-based portion of the mandate, which required oil companies to blend
billions of gallons of ethanol into their gasoline. Big Oil is pumping big money into the effort. The Obama administration, a strong defender of biofuels, is soon expected to slightly ease the law’s requirements. Overnight, such changes would eliminate a huge source of the demand for ethanol, reduce profits for farmers and ethanol producers and likely lower the price of corn. The AP’s investigation is based on government data, interviews and observations. It highlights what many researchers have published in peerreviewed journals and is consistent with reports to Congress by the Environmental Protection Agency about ethanol’s environment toll. “The AP’s reporting on this important topic is a result of months of work and review of documents, and interviews of experts and people on all sides of the public policy debate about this energy resource,” said Mike
Oreskes, AP’s vice president and senior managing editor. “We stand behind our reporting and welcome further insights and discussion.” Specifically, the ethanol industry disputed AP’s findings that as farmers rushed to find new places to plant corn, they wiped out millions of acres of conservation land and destroyed habitat. The industry said the primary driver for such losses was Congress lowering the number acres allowed in conservation, not ethanol. It also cited a Dutch study, which was not peerreviewed and found that urban sprawl internationally was responsible for greater loss of grassland than biofuels. In addition to citing the Agriculture Department’s figures of more than 5 million acres of conservation land transformed under the Obama administration from grass field back into farmland, the AP analyzed U.S. government crop data collected by
satellite. The AP identified tracts of land that were cornfields in 2012 and had been grassland in 2006. The AP then excluded land lost from the Conservation Reserve Program to prevent double counting. The AP vetted this methodology with an independent scientist at South Dakota State University, who has published peer-reviewed research on land conversion using the same satellite data. The Dutch study that the industry cited, which AP did not mention, noted that in the United States “biofuel expansion is the dominant cause of agricultural land use loss.” The ethanol industry said farmers were not converting native grasslands into cropland. The AP cited USDA’s own data for 2012, the first year it collected data on so-called new breakings, showing that 38,000 acres of neverbefore-planted grassland was farmed.

church. A saloon. A Taj Mahal? At first glance, the 10 structures on display at Sanbusco Market Center appear to be an eclectic village built for little people. But these hand-crafted habitats are actually designed for four-legged critters, part of Barkitecture, a benefit for the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society. The display, which runs through Dec. 5 at the center, 500 Montezuma Ave., pits 10 teams vying for bragging rights as builder of Santa Fe’s most exclusive and desirable dog house. The public is invited to vote on their favorite creation and even bid on the structure for their own precious pooch during the center’s hours. Votes are free, and those who vote are eligible for a raffle that will be drawn when the winning dog house is formally announced Dec. 5. All proceeds from the winning bids benefit the shelter’s programs for Northern New Mexico’s homeless dogs. The top three winning dog houses will be displayed at the shelter’s adoption center through Dec. 15. Laurie Wilson, owner of Teca Tu, the center’s pet boutique, is hosting the competition. The idea behind the competition isn’t new, and Santa Fe has had previous events in the past, she said, but not for several years. “I just think it’s a cool idea and a fun way to support the shelter,” she said. “The teams have really outdone themselves. It’s going to be a tough competition.” Many of the teams are volunteers with the shelter or are longtime supporters. Bette Yozell, a former art teacher at Santa Fe Preparatory and shelter volunteer, teamed up with her neighbor Paul Cook. Yozell was the creative force behind Dog Mahal, a dog house that honors Taj Mahal, while Cook was in charge of constructing the structure. Not only is it fully functional, but it features indoor carpet. “Dogs love having a shelter not just to protect them from the elements, but as a secure, cozy refuge,” she said. “This is even more true for rescue dogs.” Both Yozell and Cook are dog lovers, and Yozell said it was easy to enlist her dog-loving neighbor into the project. Design and construction took a couple months of back and forth from her studio to his workshop. Yozell said she tried
Tracks Pet connection Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society: Gato, a 6-year-old goddess, would love to keep you company by curling up on your lap.

to simplify the elaborate original structure so that it was recognizable but doable, while Cook figured out how to make the domes out of beach balls and toy footballs, covered with Fiberglas. “We’re both retired,” she said, “but we both have a lot of creative juices.” Yozell is inspired by India, she said, so the classic marble mausoleum in Agra, India, was the perfect structure to mimic. “I love India,” she said. “In fact, when the final party is held on Dec. 5, I will on a plane for my fourth trip there. There is also a strong affinity for East Indian decoration here in Santa Fe. And what could be more regal a shelter a welldeserving canine?” The structures were set up at the center on Sunday, and Yozell said she was impressed with many of the creations. She hopes the project is something that will be held annually. “This gives everyone something to digest, and come back next year with something even better,” she said, noting that she’s been volunteering at the shelter in some capacity for 25 years. “I am constantly impressed by the compassion and dedication of the people involved in improving the lives of companion animals.”

In brief New Mexico Lottery board terminates CEO contract ALBUQUERQUE — The New Mexico Lottery’s board of directors has voted to terminate the contract of chief executive officer Tom Romero, effective immediately. Romero had been the lottery’s executive vice president of security since its inception in 1996 and CEO since November 2006. The Albuquerque Journal reported that the seven-member, governor-appointed Lottery Authority Board voted unanimously to terminate Romero’s contract Wednesday. No reason was immediately given for the move and board members declined to discuss the termination after the special session. In a statement, the board thanked Romero for his many years of “devoted service to the lottery.”
Officials urge whooping cough booster shot ALBUQUERQUE — Health officials are urging parents to have their children re-immunized against whooping cough after an ongoing outbreak at an Albuquerque high school sickened 30 people. State officials were at La Cueva High School on Wednesday evening to meet with parents and provide boosters shots that prevent infection. Whooping cough is also called pertussis and is
highly contagious. It typically isn’t life-threatening for teens and healthy adults, but it can kill infants and people with weak immune systems. New Mexico infectious disease epidemiologist David Selvage says students can bring the disease home and infect young children, expectant mothers and infants. The Albuquerque Journal reports letters have been sent to La Cueva parents about the outbreak and Albuquerque Public Schools nurses are using nasal swabs to quickly diagnose cases.
PRC approves PNM’s efficiency incentives ALBUQUERQUE — The New Mexico Public Regulation Commission has approved a plan by Public Service Company of New Mexico to offer $22.5 million in incentives for residents and businesses to reduce their energy use. The PNM plan will give customers opportunities and incentives to improve energy efficiency through new lighting and appliances, weatherization and other building upgrades. In its plan, the utility said it expects energy efficiency to provide 82.5 gigawatt hours in savings over the next two years. The Southwest Energy Efficiency Project is calls approval of the plan is “a win for ratepayers.”
Ex-N.M. police officer arrested in child porn case ALBUQUERQUE — A former Albuquerque police officer has been arrested in connection with a federal child pornography case.
Authorities say 32-year-old Nelson Begay was taken into custody Wednesday on suspicion of receiving and possessing computer images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Shortly before his arrest, Begay resigned from the Albuquerque Police Department. He’s scheduled to make his initial appearance in federal court Thursday morning. The New Mexico Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force executed a search warrant at Begay’s home last week and seized computers and other files. Authorities say Begay allegedly was sharing child porn on file-sharing networks. A preliminary forensic examination of a laptop computer taken from Begay’s home allegedly had more than 30 child pornography images.
Tribal leaders gather for White House conference American Indian leaders are gathered in Washington, D.C., to express their needs to officials in President Barack Obama’s administration. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell welcomed the leaders Wednesday to the White House Tribal Nations Conference held at the U.S. Department of the Interior. The audience includes representatives invited from 566 tribes. Obama and a dozen other Cabinet members also give remarks during the conference. Obama vowed during his election campaign to regularly meet with tribal leaders, to hear directly from them about how his administration can meet their needs and help improve their lives.

Amtrak: Two meetings set Continued from Page A-6 eastern New Mexico and instead cross into Oklahoma and Texas. From Amarillo, the route would follow an existing track west into Albuquerque. But that would mean sharing the tracks with more than 100 freight trains a day. In an agreement made during the administration of former Gov. Bill Richardson, the state had planned to buy the 182 miles of the track the Southwest Chief uses between the Colorado border and Lamy. But earlier this year. BNSF and the Martinez administration agreed to cancel the sale. The state Department of Transportation is seeking public comment on its five-year rail plan which, according to a news release last week, “identifies current and future passenger and freight rail facilities, services, needs, issues and opportunities.” Two meetings to discuss that plan in Santa Fe are scheduled for next week, one at 1:30 p.m. Monday, the other at 5 p.m. Tuesday. Both are scheduled to take place at city offices at 500 Market St. Suite 200 in the Santa Fe Railyard. Contact Steve Terrell at sterrell@ sfnewmexican.com.

et’s use caps: DAN SNYDER HAS A KNACK FOR BAD PR. The Washington Redskins owner antagonized those seeking a change of the football team’s racially offensive name when he responded to them earlier this year by saying, “NEVER — you can use caps.” He then hired former Bill Clinton scandal manager Lanny Davis to help him put down the name rebellion. Now he’s trying to make nice with Native Americans — by working with a lobbyist who had ties to Jack Abramoff, who was imprisoned for bilking Indian tribes. The lobbyist arranged a meeting for Snyder last week with an Alabama tribe that is causing its own uproar by opening a megacasino on top of an Indian burial ground. The latest can’t-make-thisstuff-up development was reported last week, in part, by USA Today, which noted that Snyder visited the Poarch Band of Creek Indians in Atmore, Ala., last Tuesday. According to the tribe’s treasurer, Robert McGhee, the meeting was arranged by lobbyist Jennifer Farley, and the topic of the team name never came up. “I thought the whole meeting was odd,” McGhee told USA Today. And getting odder. Lobbyist Farley was, a decade ago, working in the White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs, where she served as a liaison to Indian tribes and accepted gifts from Abramoff’s team before the superlobbyist’s fall in a corruption scandal.
A congressional report found that Farley accepted tickets to two Baltimore Orioles games and a Yanni concert from Abramoff’s operation and requested more, using the code word fruit for tickets when emailing with Abramoff associate Kevin Ring, who was later convicted in the scandal. “Do you have any kind of fruit tonight?” she asked Ring on Dec. 12, 2002. Farley, who was not prosecuted, didn’t respond to my requests for comment. She refused to testify to House investigators about the Abramoff matter without a grant of immunity. After the White House, she started a lobbying firm and has registered to represent the Miccosukee and the Pascua Yaqui tribes. Why Snyder would seek out the Poarch Band is another curiosity. (Davis declined to comment.) The tribal chairman had sent a letter to the Senate Indian Affairs Committee in September, saying the Redskins name is “racist and harmful.” But Snyder wasn’t talking with them about epithets; he was report-
edly talking about economic development. The Poarch Band, a big player in Alabama politics, has a booming gambling empire. It is opening a $250 million hotel and casino, the state’s largest, with 2,520 electronic games and a 16,000-gallon shark tank. The project has been the target of a lawsuit and protests led by the Muscogee Creek Indians of Oklahoma and joined by other tribes, because the ground the Poarch Band built the new complex on is a sacred ceremonial and burial ground. It was the last known capital of the Creek Nation before the tribe was forced west. According to the Native American Times, 57 sets of human remains were unearthed during construction on the site. The Poarch Band was tangentially involved in the Abramoff affair, when Abramoff’s operation, representing (or, it turned out, defrauding) the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians and its gambling ambitions, campaigned against the Poarch Band’s casino expansion in neighboring Alabama. In Abramoff’s 2011 book, he says that when he was
representing the Choctaw, he wrote to Snyder urging him to change the team name “to undo this insult” to Native Americans. “I asked him how we would feel if the New York team were called the Jew Boys, or worse,” Abramoff wrote. “I further argued that, were he to make this change now, he would immediately establish himself as a moral leader in our nation’s capital, and garner the respect of those who were likely to look askance on him.” Snyder disagreed, of course, but he was “not the imperious brat the media had portrayed him to be,” Abramoff wrote, and, “a few seasons later, I was given first choice of the new suites in the former press section and our expenditures at FedEx Field grew exponentially.” Abramoff may have been a crook, but his advice to Snyder was spot-on. Gone, now, is any hope of Snyder establishing himself as a moral leader. And the name-change movement, now much stronger, is not likely to be pacified with skyboxes.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Editorial cartoon disrespectful to service women
have never written a letter to the editor before, but your incredibly thoughtless and insensitive (or ignorant) Paul Combs cartoon on the eve of Veterans Day in the Nov. 10 edition, on the Opinions page provided my inspiration. Do you really think American military veterans are only male? My daughter, a career Air Force officer, fighter pilot and combat veteran and my niece, an Air Force air traffic controller and Iraq veteran, as well as thousands of other women who served their country since World War II would be highly insulted by this omission. Terry Price
Vietnam era veteran Abiquiú The editorial cartoon by Paul Combs selected to be used on the Nov. 10, edition of The New Mexican needed a better review process. The cartoon caption encourages the viewer to “Thank a Real Hero Today.” Unfortunately, Captain America’s words inside the cartoon addresses the uniformed male military characters with the words: “Gentlemen, Thank You!” Ironically, the accompanying Parade magazine cover story is of women in the military. Additionally, Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, repeatedly acknowledged “military

men and women” in his salute to the 9/11 veteran. In 2013, an updated Captain America, like all Americans today, can use the words: “Ladies and gentlemen, thank you!” when we use Veterans Day to thank a real hero. John D. Allen Thomas R. Andrassy
Numbers don’t lie After reading Sandy Buffett’s “My View” (“This election, progressives are prepared,” Nov. 3), I felt compelled to set the record straight as numbers don’t lie. Buffett believes David Coss lost his Democratic primary battle to Rep. Carl Trujillo because of the interjection of a political action committee called Reform NM. She mentions this PAC is tied to Big Oil and Gas. These were two well-run campaigns, with Trujillo winning by almost 5 percentage points. Reform NM sent out mailings

the Saturday before Election Day. Early voting had already started. As I recall, early voting made up one-third of all votes cast in that election before any PAC was involved. I remember Trujillo winning early voting by a resounding double-digit margin. Had it not been for the PAC’s interference, it’s my opinion this double-digit margin would have remained. Reform NM’s involvement helped David Coss close the margin while it severely hurt Carl Trujillo. Ernest J. Silva
‘Spiritual Mother’ A recent memorial service honoring the legacy of Mary Lou Cook demonstrated that she had touched many lives in many ways that will continue to serve Santa Fe. Regarded as the “spiritual mother” of our community, Mary Lou’s endeavors were so many that time ran out before all of her contributions could be noted. The Santa Fe Living Treasures program, which she helped found in 1984 to honor elders in our community, has recognized the efforts of more than 231 individuals, including Mary Lou Cook. Mary Lou graced our ceremonies until her recent death. Nancy Dahl
pparently, U.S. Senate Republicans must want the Democratic majority to change the rules that govern the Senate — else, why would Republicans keep blocking qualified judicial and federal nominees? It is clear they are goading Democrats. Two weeks ago, Republicans filibustered Patricia Millett, a nominee to the D.C. Court of Appeals, and on Tuesday, they did the same to Nina Pillard. She also was a nominee to the appeals court; a third nominee likely faces the same fate in a future vote. A sitting congressman was blocked — Mel Watt of North Carolina had been nominated to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency. That hasn’t happened since the Civil War. The senseless stalling of qualified nominees, especially to a court that is widely scene as proving ground for future Supreme Court justices, seems to us to be a test of Democratic will. Either Democrats continue to threaten a rules change yet do nothing, or, they grow a spine and change the rules. They have hesitated because a rules change paves the way for Republicans, on that day when they regain a majority, to push legislation through without the super majority needed today. Constitutionally, of course, a simple majority passes legislation or approves nominees — 51 votes. Under the rules of the Senate — pushed to the breaking point by stubborn Republicans — it generally takes 60 votes to approve nominees or pass legislation. That’s because 60 votes are needed to allow debate to resume once the intention to filibuster has been invoked. The Senate doesn’t even require dissenters to get up and talk to block a law or person. By requiring 60 votes to return to debate on the legislation or nominee, a procedure called “cloture,” little can be done without a super majority. Democrats have long threatened to return to the 51-vote threshold — New Mexico’s senior senator, Tom Udall, is a leader in that movement to reform the filibuster. Traditionalists have been reluctant to blow up long-standing Senate rules and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid would not act, preferring negotiations. He backed away from what is termed the nuclear option at the beginning of the term, in return for a Republican promise that they would stop being so obstructionist. That promise has not held. Sen. Charles Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, is warning Democrats that changing Senate rules would only hurt Democrats later. “All I can say is this — be careful what you wish for,” he said Tuesday. “If the Democrats are bent on changing the rules, then I say go ahead. There are a lot more [Antonin] Scalias and [Clarence] Thomases that we’d love to put on the bench.” It’s risky, true, because Republicans have proved motivated at pushing people through the nominating system. Eliminating cloture would give a Republican-majority Senate free rein to charge ahead. But failing to act now is no guarantee that Republicans wouldn’t eliminate the 60-vote threshold anyway. All that preserving the status quo does is keep qualified nominees from taking their seats. Democrats should recognize they have little choice, change the rules, and spend the next year getting as many of President Barack Obama’s judicial and other nominees approved and seated. The judiciary, in a gridlocked United States, is where big issues are decided. To leave empty three seats on the D.C. Circuit Court — seats that President George W. Bush once filled — is tantamount to legislative malpractice. Udall puts the situation in perspective: “Once again the United States Senate is unable to fulfill its constitutional responsibility to advise and consent on key judicial and executive nominations because members of one party are refusing to allow a vote on a highly qualified presidential nominee. Senate Republicans aren’t filibustering Pillard’s nomination out of concern with her qualifications, but to obstruct for their own political gain. It’s time to return the Senate to a functioning body.” Democrats have 55 seats right now in the Senate. They should muster their majority, change the rules and get to work. It benefits future generations to have a system that works. Sometimes Republicans, other times Democrats will be in the majority, but the business of the people will get done.

I have asked for proof, but she hasn’t provided any. We did use a condom, but it broke. Should I tell my almost-fiancee or wait until I have physical proof?

Just because I move slower doesn’t mean my need isn’t as urgent. Please, ladies, life is challenging enough without this kind of rudeness.

Please don’t be reluctant to speak up if someone grabs that stall while you are waiting. Here’s the rule: The handicapped stall may be used by an able-bodied person provided no one needs it, no other stall is available and you will be quick. When you can wait for a regular stall, please do so.

He said it took up too much time. Apparently, he’s never worked with the public. I work in a bank. My employers have told us to be friendly to the customers. If it’s a regular customer, we might ask about the family or their job. To me, that is simply personalized service. I prefer to do business where someone will acknowledge me rather than ignore me. If “Waiting” doesn’t want to be spoken to, he has three options: One, ignore their friendly questions. Two, complain to the person in charge. Three, take his business elsewhere, where they move people through like robots on a conveyer belt. “Waiting” needs to learn to stop and smell the roses — or start earlier. — Glad to be a Friendly Customer Service Rep

West Las Vegas volleyball coach dies at 51 Lady Dons will play today in state tourney in memory of Bustos By James Barron The New Mexican
Mary Bustos was a lot of things to the community of Las Vegas, N.M. — and the volleyball community in New Mexico. Mother. Coach. Teacher. Motivator. Mentor. Friend. Tigers ace Max Scherzer, top, and Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw won the Cy Young Awards on Wednesday. ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO
All of those qualities will be missed after West Las Vegas’ head volleyball coach and math teacher died on Wednesday morning. She was 51. Bustos suffered from amyloidosis, a disease in which substances called amyloid proteins build up in any tissue or organ. Gene Parson, the superintendent of the West Las Vegas School District, said she had gone to several different hospitals for treatment, including the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. Bustos had coached the Lady Dons
during Saturday’s District 2AAA championship against Pojoaque Valley and was preparing the team for its trip to the Class AAA State Volleyball Tournament, which begins Thursday. West Las Vegas athletic director Herman Gallegos said the Lady Dons will head to Rio Rancho and play in her memory. “We were very straight about tomorrow with them,” Gallegos said. “We told them if they want to forfeit, it was certainly OK. We could call a forfeit and understand their grief. They talked it over and spent a good
30 minutes. They decided to go win it for coach Mary.” Her death resonated beyond Las Vegas, though. Brian Gurule, the head coach at Santa Fe Indian School, called Bustos “my big sister.” “[Wednesday], I lost my big sister,” Gurule said. The two had a long coaching relationship, as he coached at West Las Vegas in the late 1990s, while Bustos guided Las Vegas Robertson’s pro-

STATE VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT
Kershaw, Scherzer easily win Cy Young Awards By Mike Fitzpatrick The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Clayton Kershaw has two Cy Young Awards by age 25 and one runner-up finish. He just posted baseball’s lowest ERA in 13 years and became the third pitcher since 1900 to lead the majors in that category for three consecutive seasons. Huge numbers. Here’s another one: $300 million. Scuttlebutt is, that’s how much the Los Angeles Dodgers might be offering to keep him from becoming a free agent. So when Kershaw was asked about a new contract Wednesday, his family and friends were ready. They walked right into the camera shot on MLB Network to engulf him with hugs and high-fives in a welcome interruption. It was better support than he often received from Dodgers hitters. “That was perfect timing. I don’t know how that happened, but it was great. I didn’t have to answer the question,” Kershaw said about an hour later on a conference call from his Dallas home. “Not my doing. It was just coincidence.” Kershaw won the NL Cy Young Award for the second time in three seasons Wednesday, coming within one vote of a unanimous selection. Max Scherzer of the Detroit Tigers breezed to the American League prize, chosen first on 28 of 30 ballots. One year after he was runner-up to knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, Kershaw nearly shut out the competition. The left-hander with the big-breaking curve received 29 of 30 first-place votes from members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. Adam Wainwright of the St. Louis Cardinals was picked first on one ballot. Kershaw is eligible for free agency after next season. So if the Dodgers plan to keep him, it’s probably going to cost them in a long-term deal. “I do love L.A. I really think we can win there, too,” Kershaw said. “We’ll just see what happens. It’s kind of an open book right now.” Kershaw went 16-9 for the NL West champions this year and led the league with 232 strikeouts. His 1.83 ERA was the best in the majors since Pedro Martinez’s 1.74 for Boston in 2000. Scherzer went 21-3 and was an easy pick as the American League’s top pitcher. Just like Kershaw, Scherzer can become a free agent after the 2014 season, and the Tigers are trying to figure out if they can afford him along with all their other stars such as Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder and Justin Verlander. That’s prompted talk they might trade Scherzer before opening day. “I love it here in Detroit,” Scherzer said on a conference call. “Who wouldn’t want to be a part of this?” Scherzer and agent Scott Boras said they’re open to talking to the Tigers about an extension. Scherzer was the lone 20-game winner in baseball this season. He ranked second in the majors with 240 strikeouts and was fifth in the AL with a 2.90 ERA.

Waldorf back & better
Lady Wolves in familiar position going into second straight tourney appearance By James Barron The New Mexican
ou mean there’s a state tournament? When Keifer Nace was an eighth-grader, she never knew there was such a thing as a state volleyball tournament. It wasn’t just because she was a precocious middle-schooler learning the sport as a member of the Santa Fe Waldorf Lady Wolves. They could be forgiven back then for such ignorance, because back in 2010, a victory for Waldorf was winning a game, much less a match. “Our program was just being born, it was so young,” says Nace, who is now a junior. “Moving up from being so inexperienced to being so expe-
rienced, it’s like going from kindergarten to high school. But in a faster time.” In the span of four years, Nace has gone from neophyte to grizzled postseason veteran, and Waldorf has gone from the program perpetually trying to build a foundation to adding a trophy room to its sterling home. In 2010, Waldorf had played 56 matches in its first three years as a varsity program — it had but three wins to its name. In the past two seasons, the Lady Wolves have lost three matches each year. The program that couldn’t seem to win is now the one that can’t seem to lose. This year, Waldorf (18-3) is the fourth seed in the Class B State Tournament, which will be held at Rio Rancho Cleveland on Thursday, and is in a pool play that includes three-time defending
champion and top seed Elida. It’s similar to what Waldorf went through last year, as it was also the No. 4 seed and in a pool with Elida. The difference is that the Lady Wolves were not ready for the bright lights of the postseason. “Last year, we played a lot of teams that weren’t as good as us, and it felt like we were a little cocky,” says Cecelia Barnard, a junior outside hitter. “We had lost one game. Going up to state, we saw other B schools that we didn’t know were there, and we were like, ‘Wow, there are other schools our size that are way better than us.’ It did show us a whole other level of playing.”

NFL attendance issues not just for also-rans By Will Graves

PITTSBURGH — Mike Tomlin isn’t much on public gratitude. Still, the perpetually focused Pittsburgh Steelers coach went out of his way to thank the fans who showed up at Heinz Field to watch his team drum the Buffalo Bills 23-10 on Sunday for its third win of the season. “It’s not something we take for granted,” Tomlin said. Good idea. A crowd of 60,406 turned out to watch two teams with a combined 5-12 record play on a cold, blustery day more suited for late-December than three weeks before Thanksgiving. The 5,000 or so who bought their tickets but chose to not make it through the turnstiles were conspicuous, their absence marked by pockets of open gold seats in certain portions of the stadium tucked tight against the Allegheny River.

the exception, and not just in places like woeful Jacksonville. Blame it on mediocre teams. Blame it on rising ticket prices. Blame in on the comfort of your couch, where it doesn’t cost hundreds of dollars to sit, and the cold beer in your fridge, the one that doesn’t cost $8 a bottle. The Steelers (3-6), who have six Vince Lombardi Trophies in the lobby at team headquarters, are in danger of posting their lowest average attendance since 2003, when they limped to a 6-10 record and missed the playoffs. The franchise is on a similar trajectory this fall in a place that can be tough — by NFL standards — to completely fill even when times are good. Pittsburgh is averaging 61,465 through four home dates, the lowest over the same span since Heinz Field opened in 2001. It’s a trend hitting the league regardless of market size or on-field success. In 2008, only five teams played to stadiums less than 95 per-

SPORTS VOLLEYBALL NOTEBOOK
Court connection for Santa Fe High By James Barron The New Mexican
Class AAAA knows a lot about Piedra Vista’s Samantha Sofka. But do the Santa Fe High Demonettes know Sofka has a connection to their head coach? If they’re reading this on Thursday morning, then maybe they’ll take to the court with the knowledge that Sofka, the Lady Panthers’ top outside hitter, was named after Santa Fe High head coach Sam Estrada. Sofka’s mother, Dana Sofka, was an assistant coach under Estrada when he coached at Farmington in the 1990s. The Demonettes will open pool play for the Class AAAA State Tournament against the top-seeded Lady Panthers at 8 a.m. in the Santa Ana Star Center.
Northern touch Not only does the Class AAAAA bracket have a District 1AAAAA flavor, it will have a hint of Northern spice to it. Rio Rancho Cleveland, the defending AAAAA cham-
pion, is led by former Pojoaque Valley head coach Brian Ainsworth, while former West Las Vegas and Capital head coach Dawn C’deBaca now guides Albuquerque Volcano Vista, the No. 12 seed. It is the first time the Lady Hawks were selected for the AAAAA bracket, and it marks the first time the district got all four teams in the tournament. Not to be outdone. District 3AAAAA also got five teams into the tournament (Las Cruces, Las Cruces Oñate, Las Cruces Mayfield and Anthony Gadsden).
Streaks on the line Last year saw the end of Texico’s sixyear run atop Class AA, and some other streaks are on the line this year. Pojoaque and Tatum both own the longest state championship streak with four in a row. Ironically, both teams earned the same seed — No. 3 — in AAA (the Elkettes) and A (the Lady Coyotes). In Class B, Elida has a three-year reign to defend and is the top seed again.
If the Lady Tigers win this year, they can boast that they are the only team to ever win the B championship. The class will change its name from B to A next year.

St. Michael’s makes its first appearance in the AAA state tournament under third-year head coach Steve Long. Prior to that, the Lady Horsemen reached the state tournament for seven straight years, from 2004-2011. Meanwhile, McCurdy’s streak of earning the No. 12 seed ended at two this year. The Lady Bobcats got the No. 9 slot — and get No. 1 Fort Sumner and No. 8 Mountainair in Pool A.

ninth at 75. Waldorf also owns four of the top seven spots in digs in Class B, with Barnard leading the way at 215. Also on that list is eighth-grader Beatrice Lowe, at 201, and she has become a strong hitter as well, despite a 5-foot-3 frame. If anything, Lowe embodies what Adams wants to see from her team. “We’re mentally strong, and we’re emotionally strong,” Adams says. “We are scrappy, and we’re fighters. And I think we have some of the biggest hearts I’ve ever seen out there on the court. My girls give. They really give, when it’s the right time.” And what better time than the present? Nace and Barnard got a taste of the state tournament last year, but it just whetted an
apettite for more. “We want to bring home a trophy,” Barnanrd said. “We don’t want to lose as soon as we get there. We want to hang around for a little bit, like ‘til Saturday.” And for a program that is starting to make its mark, the feeling around school is different than it was a few years ago. Back then, the pats on the back often preceded a, “You’ll get them next time.” Now, when the Lady Wolves walk through the halls, the tone is the exact opposite. “Teachers will come up and say, ‘How much did you win by?’ ” Nace says. “They never second-guess us. They always ask how good our win was instead of how bad our losses were.”
Coach: Bustos also a dedicated math teacher gram. She was his assistant coach when he was at Pecos from 2006-08, and they resumed a coaching rivalry in 2011, when he went to SFIS and she was in her third stint at Robertson. “She was a big influence in my life and my coaching and with so many things,” Gurule said. “Like at Pecos, we got to work together and we were just best friends. We were inseparable at times. She did a lot. She was an amazing woman.” Former St. Michael’s head coach Chela Butler remembered Bustos from their teams’ battles over the years and knew her as a fierce competitor whose teams were well-coached. She also knew that Bustos was well-connected within the volleyball community, sometimes surprising Butler with the latest gossip she had heard. “She would tell me these things and I would be like, ‘Where did you hear that?’ ” Butler said. “And she would be like, ‘So and so told me.’ ” Bustos also was dedicated to her teaching craft as well. Gallegos recalls Bustos’ Sunday morning math tutoring sessions, and it was an open invitation for anyone who needed help. “She’d give the kids breakfast, and they didn’t have to be kids from our school,” Gallegos said. “Anybody from the commu-

THE NEW MEXICAN
On the bench
Waldorf: This year, Lady Wolves aim to hang around Barnard and Nace, though, were a part of a group that brought a whole other level of volleyball to the program. It was a group that former head coach and current athletic director Daniel Wendland saw potential in, if it just stayed together. That had been the problem through the first three years. The program lost about 13 players during that stretch, who transferred to other schools. All he wanted was for one group of players to stick around long enough to turn things around. “This group of juniors, I knew if they would just stick around, we’d be OK,” Wendland says. “I knew we’d be in good shape when they were older. And that’s where we’re at now.” What Wendland saw were good athletes who needed to learn how to play. Barnard has grown into a hard-hitting presence on the outside, while Nace developed into a reliable setter. Fellow seniors Brooke Reiche and Alex Chastenet became strong middle blockers that made it harder for opposing hitters to swing away at the net. It combined with a senior group led by Kayla Salyer and Sophia Richard and a fast-developing freshman in Rosemary Damianov last year to the tune of a 19-3 mark and Waldorf’s first District 5B title. What happened next, though, had a familiar ring to it — just with a twist. Richard and Salyer graduated, and Damianov transferred to Albuquerque La Cueva, which sapped the Lady Wolves of some firepower up front. But while that was happening, Waldorf added an important piece in new head coach Josie Adams, who had assisted Wendland for two years. Adams says she played at the University of Kentucky as a defensive specialist in the late 1970s, and she brought the kind of philosophy that a specialist would, with an emphasis on serving and defense. So it’s no surprise that Waldorf owns the top two spots in aces in the state, according to MaxPreps.com, with Sophie Linett with 148 aces and Barnard at 134. Nace is

nity could go.” But she made her name in Northern New Mexico as a volleyball coach. Bustos ran the program at Robertson in 1997 and 1999, then returned in 2010 and spent three years there. She also coached at West Las Vegas in 2005, where she guided her niece, Vera Jo Bustos, helping her develop into one of the school’s premier athletes. Vera Jo Bustos remembers her as a tough, intense competitor who made her players work hard. She remembers her aunt as “the best math teacher I ever had.” Vera Jo Bustos also saw the softer side of her aunt, who loved to bake for her family. “She loved making cheesecake and brownies,” said Vera Jo Bustos, now an assistant girls basketball coach at Western State Colorado University. “Those were some of the finer memories I have of her.” Mary Bustos’ family is heavily involved in athletics. She coached her daughter, Caelin Bustos, and a niece, Deanna Bustos, on the volleyball team. Her husband, David Bustos, is the head boys basketball coach at West Las Vegas, and one of his sons, D.J., plays for him. Another son, Justin Bustos, plays for the New Mexico Highlands University men’s basketball program. Mary Bustos was involved in her husband’s program, helping him wherever she could. Parson said she helped with paperwork and talked as late as Monday about
helping the boys basketball team once the volleyball season was over. This, even though Parson remembered Bustos talking last week about retiring from teaching so she could focus on her health. “She was a very tenacious person,” Parson said. “She’s not a quitter. Those kind of people are hard to come by.” Still, Bustos showed signs of fatigue during the season. Pojoaque head coach Eric Zamora said she left a district match two weeks ago because she didn’t feel well, which said a lot about her physical state. “[A volleyball match] was like her sanctuary,” Zamora said. “It was like an escape from everything, even if it was just for an hour or two.” The loss hit Zamora’s team hard, having developed a good, competitive relationship with Bustos and the Lady Dons, and Pojoaque assistant coach Mark Loera is her cousin. Parson said the student body has rallied around the team after learning of Bustos’ death, so much so that the amount of permission slips handed out Wednesday led the school district to order two buses to bring students to the state tournament. “That is good to see,” Parson said. “I certainly hope they show up.”

Former Raiders TE Christensen dies SALT LAKE CITY — With his penchant for poetry, Todd Christensen never fit the Raiders’ renegade mold. But that didn’t keep him from becoming one of the team’s best alltime tight ends. A five-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time Super Bowl winner, Christensen died from complications during liver transplant surgery Wednesday. He was 57. Christensen’s son, Toby Christensen, said his father died at Intermountain Medical Center near his home in Alpine, Utah. He had been waiting for 10 months for a donor liver. After a stellar career at running back for BYU from 1974-77, Christensen was a second-round pick for the Dallas Cowboys in the 1978 NFL draft. He was waived by the Cowboys after breaking his foot in training camp but landed the next year with the Raiders, where he played for 10 seasons at tight end and won Super Bowls in 1981 and 1984. In 1983, he had 92 catches, setting the NFL record at the time for tight ends. He finished the season with 1,247 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns. He broke his own record three seasons later with 95 catches. He finished his pro career with 467 catches for 5,872 yards and 41 touchdowns — a TD record for a Raiders tight end. He surpassed 1,000 yards receiving in three different seasons. The Associated Press

Colts, Titans want to forget Week 10 By Barry Wilner
The Associated Press
The Colts and Titans would very much like to forget last weekend’s debacles. They’ll get a chance right away. Indianapolis (6-3, No. 8 in the AP Pro32) leads the AFC South and pretty much can put away Tennessee (4-5, No. 21, AP Pro32) with a victory Thursday night. Of course, the Colts need to play far, far better than they did in being routed at home by St. Louis 38-8. And the Titans must show a lot more than they presented in handing Jacksonville its first win of the season last Sunday, 29-27 — at Nashville, no less. Indy has been plagued by slow starts, and not having star receiver Reggie Wayne has become a huge problem. The Colts have been down in the first quarter by double digits against Miami, Seattle and Houston. The Rams got a big lead early in the second period. “Like I said, we’re not the hunters no more. We’re the hunted,” cornerback Vontae Davis said. “So teams are coming out throwing punches at us.” Tennessee took a haymaker last week just when it could have climbed within one game of the division-leading Colts. Starting quarterback Jake Locker is done for the season with a right foot injury. His replacement, veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick, is eager to get his team off to another of those fast starts against Indy. “When things are doing well, you can feel that momentum and feels like the football field gets slanted, and it gets you on a roll and you start scoring points,” Fitzpatrick said. “It’d be good to get that going early.” Look for the Colts to be doing that instead. COLTS, 23-14 No. 19 Cleveland (+5½) at No. 10 Cincinnati Browns could really shake up AFC North with win. Close, but … BEST BET: BENGALS, 20-17 No. 4 New England (+2½) at No. 6 Carolina, Monday night Time to start believing … in Patriots. UPSET SPECIAL:

Mozgov, Nuggets drop Lakers The Associated Press
DENVER — Timofey Mozgov matched his career high with 23 points, and the Denver Nuggets beat the Los Angeles Lakers 111-99 on Wednesday night to win consecutive games for the first time this Nuggets 111 season. First-year Lakers 99 Nuggets coach Brian Shaw, who was part of five championship teams with the Lakers as a player and assistant coach, beat Los Angeles in his first matchup against his former team. Kenneth Faried added 21 points and Ty Lawson had 19 for the Nuggets, who won their fourth straight against the Lakers, their longest winning streak against Los Angeles since 1994. Pau Gasol led the Lakers with 25 points. 76ERS 123, ROCKETS 117 In Philadelphia, Tony Wroten had his first career triple-double, James Anderson scored a career-high 36 points and Spencer Hawes made the goahead basket with 34 seconds left in overtime to help the 76ers beat Houston. Wroten had career highs with 18 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists in his first start for injured rookie Michael Carter-Williams, who didn’t play because of a bruised left arch. Jeremy Lin scored 34 points, making a careerbest nine 3-pointers. Dwight Howard had 23 points and 15 rebounds, and Chandler Parsons added 22 points for Houston. Lin started for James Harden, who was out of Houston’s lineup because of a bruised left foot. TIMBERWOLVES 124, CAVALIERS 95 In Minneapolis, Kevin Love had 33 points, eight rebounds and six assists, Ricky Rubio added 16 points and a careerhigh 16 assists, and Minnesota beat Cleveland. Corey Brewer scored 27 points for Minnesota while filling in for Kevin Martin, who was out with an illness, and

the Timberwolves outscored Cleveland 29-6 in transition points to run the Cavaliers out of the building. Kyrie Irving scored 20 points on 8-for-17 shooting and survived a nasty collision in the first quarter for the Cavaliers. Anderson Varejao had 13 points and five rebounds starting for Andrew Bynum, who missed the game for personal reasons. The Cavs fell to 0-6 on the road this season. SPURS 92, WIZARDS 79 In San Antonio, Texas, Tony Parker had 16 points, leading six Spurs in double figures, and the Spurs rolled over Washington. Boris Diaw had 15 points, Kawhi Leonard added 13 points, and Manu Ginobili and Marco Belinelli each had 10 for San Antonio. Tiago Splitter had 12 points and nine rebounds. Martell Webster had 21 points, Bradley Beal added 19 points and John Wall had 14 points and eight assists for Washington, which has lost three straight. The Spurs held a double digit lead for all but about 15 minutes in remaining undefeated at home.
KNICKS 95, HAWKS 91 In Atlanta, Carmelo Anthony continued his success against Atlanta by scoring 25 points and New York regrouped after blowing a 17-point lead. The Knicks, relying on 3-pointers, led 47-30 in the second period. New York made only 5 of 25 shots from the field while being outscored 23-10 in the third period, leaving the Hawks with a 68-65 lead. Andrea Bargnani had 20 points and 11 rebounds, and rookie Tim Hardaway Jr. had 14 points for New York. Jeff Teague led Atlanta with 25 points and eight assists. Al Horford had 23 points. RAPTORS 103, GRIZZLIES 87 In Memphis, Tenn., Rudy Gay scored 23 points in his return to Memphis and Kyle Lowry added 21 to help Toronto beat the Grizzlies. Gay, who was part of a Jan. 30 trade that sent him to the Raptors after spending his first 6-plus years in the league with Memphis, was 8 of 18 from the field, but missed his first four shots in the game. DeMar DeRozan scored 13 of his 18 points in the first
BOBCATS 89, CELTICS 83 In Boston, Al Jefferson had 22 points and 11 rebounds to lead Charlotte over Boston, snapping the Celtics’ fourgame winning streak. Gerald Henderson had 13 points, Jeff Taylor 12 and Anthony Tolliver 11 for Charlotte, which ended a twogame skid. Jeff Green led Boston with 19 points and Jordan Crawford had 16 points and six assists. Both teams were without key big men. Celtics forward Jared Sullinger was out with a bruised right knee and Bobcats forward Josh McRoberts missed the game for personal reasons. He’s expected to play Friday night in Cleveland. It was Bobcats coach Steve Clifford’s second game back after two stents were placed in his heart last week. MAGIC 94, BUCKS 91 In Orlando, Fla., Arron Afflalo scored a career-high 36 points, Nikola Vucevic added 17 points and 11 rebounds, and the Magic rallied to beat Milwaukee and snap a threegame skid. Afflalo was 8 of 11 from beyond the arc, adding six assists and eight rebounds. Maurice Harkless and Victor Oladipo had 10 points apiece for the Magic. O.J. Mayo scored 25 points for the Bucks, losers of three straight. Caron Butler added 20 and Khris Middleton had 19. Butler injured his left shoulder with just over two minutes left and didn’t return to the game. Afflalo scored 29 points in the second half, including 11 straight for the Magic in the fourth quarter. He ended the game with an assist to Vucevic with 9.2 seconds to play that gave Orlando a 94-91 lead. Afflalo then stole the ball from Mayo as the Bucks scrambled to attempt a gametying 3-pointer.
Young leads No. 18 Oregon in blowout The Associated Press
EUGENE, Ore. — Joseph Young scored 28 of his career-high 36 points in the second half to help No. 18 Oregon rout Western Carolina 107-83 on Wednesday night. Mike Moser added 26 points and Elgin Cook had 16 for the Ducks (2-0), who opened the season with an 82-75 win
against Georgetown last Friday Western Carolina 83 at Camp Humphreys, a U.S. Army base in Pyeongtaek, South Korea. They returned to Oregon the next day and resumed practice Monday. Young, a transfer junior guard from Houston, made all seven of his shots in 18 Oregon
the second half and only missed three of his 12 attempts in the game. He was also 15-for-16 from the free-throw line. Trey Sumler scored 29 in his season debut for the Catamounts (2-1). The Ducks (2-0) led 41-39 at halftime but made 10 of their first 12 shots in the second half to take a 71-55 lead with 11:49 to play.

After ugly losses, Colts, Titans eager to play By Teresa M. Walker The Associated Press
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Colts and Titans both feel embarrassed and disgusted with themselves, ready to move. They get to do so quickly. Indianapolis is coming off its worst loss since 2011, and Tennessee just became the first team to lose to the Jaguars. So both the Colts and Titans are eager to play again, even if their bodies still ache with a four-day turnaround. The faster the better so at least one team can ease the pain in this AFC South showdown. “That we can get back on the field as soon as possible and atone for our sins if you will,” Colts quarterback Andrew Luck said of playing Thursday night. “I’m sure the Titans are feeling the same way.” The Colts lost 38-8 to St. Louis and former Titans coach Jeff Fisher last week in their worst loss since being routed by 55 points in New Orleans in 2011. They fell behind early — again — and Luck couldn’t pull them out of another hole. Still, they have a
two-game lead over the Titans in the AFC South, and a win would give them a road victory over each divisional team. “We know that’s going to be a heavyweight fight,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. The Titans not only are trying to bounce back from a short week but also the loss of their starting quarterback. Jake Locker suffered a Lisfranc injury to his right foot in last week’s 29-27 loss to Jacksonville, moving Ryan Fitzpatrick into the lineup for the rest of the season. This is the first of two games between these teams in three weeks. A Tennessee win not only trims the Colts’ lead in the division but keeps a franchise chasing its first playoff berth since 2008 in the mix for the AFC’s final wild-card berth. “Being able to get the Colts two times in three weeks, that’d be pretty good for us if we can pull that off,” Titans running back Chris Johnson said.
TODAY ON TV u Indianapolis at Tennessee, 6 p.m. on NFL Network
NFL: Living room is cheaper, warmer Continued from Page B-1 cent full. That number has doubled this season at a time when TV ratings are at their best since 2006. The Washington Redskins have one of the NFL’s rising stars in quarterback Robert Griffin III and are playing to just 88.9 percent capacity this season. The surprising New York Jets have the nation’s largest metropolitan area to pull from and only 93.3 of those with tickets are showing up. Then again, New York can be a tough market. Steelers wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery was on the 2007 Jets that limped to a 4-12 record. As the season wore on and the losses mounted, things got weird. “Pittsburgh came to town, but it felt like an away game,” Cotchery said. “It was so loud in there. I remember us doing silent count and all of that stuff at home. But we were a bad team. I probably wouldn’t want to take my kid out in the cold and watch a bad team play football.” It can lead, in some instances, to the unnerving realization that players can’t simply rely on the juice — or the vitriol — from the crowd to get amped up. “When we play on the road, certain places are just known for being quiet,” Cincinnati left tackle Andrew Whitworth said. “It’s almost like in the huddle, you have to keep reminding yourself to keep your energy up and realize that some of these places are really quiet and you have to create your own energy a little bit.”
The NFL amended its TV blackout rule last year, allowing teams to sell only 85 percent of its prime tickets to meet the threshold necessary to have home games broadcast locally. While the decision has done nothing but goose TV ratings even further, getting folks into the stadium on a regular basis in some cities remains a tough task. Oakland and Jacksonville swath their stadiums in massive drapes that cover entire sections. It reduces capacity but hasn’t exactly increased demand. While the atmosphere has improved with the Raiders, only 81.4 percent of ticket holders make it to their seats. More than 10 percent of those with tickets in Jacksonville don’t bother to get an eyeful of one of the league’s worst teams. Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer is prepping the Cardinals for an “interesting atmosphere” when they visit the Jaguars (1-8) on Sunday, where tickets are going for as low as $8 on StubHub. To be honest, he’s going to miss the opportunity to quiet a hostile environment, mostly because there likely won’t be one. “You can’t worry about any of those outside distractions,” Palmer said. “You’ve just got to focus on doing your job each and every play, and do what it takes to win the game, regardless of how many people are watching or who is in the stands.” Commissioner Roger Goodell continues to stress the in-game fan experience remains important to the league. It also remains important to the bottom lines of owners, if only to fatten their wallets.
When Personal Seat Licensing came into vogue, it created a new revenue stream by making fans plunk down thousands just for the right to buy tickets. It priced some longtime season ticket holders out of the market and as the U.S. economy sputtered, so did interest in making a significant financial commitment to get in the door when the living room can be just as inviting and significantly cheaper. And owners continue to press for new stadiums even as evidence mounts that less might be more. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has turned AT&T Stadium into a virtual ATM since it opened in 2009. Dallas averages more than 86,000 fans a game, well over 100 percent capacity, even as the team continues to hover around .500. The Falcons have barely been in the Georgia Dome two decades and already they’ve struck a deal on a new $1 billion building that will be ready by 2017. The Steelers aren’t greedy enough to ask for new digs, but they are planning to add an additional 3,000 seats at Heinz Field, even though they’ve never averaged more than 63,458 per game since its debut in 2001. All that’s left is deciding who picks up most of the tab. The issue remains in the Pittsburgh courts, though whenever the expansion is complete, the same factors that fans face every Sunday will remain in place. “It’s just how it works,” Cotchery said. “When you’re losing like [we did in New York], those decisions have to be made. Do I go to the game or do I not go to the game? I know it’s tough.”

f we lived outdoors, we’d need more calories when the weather turned colder. Well, birds do too. Fortunately, native berry and seed producing plants are still loaded with food for the birds. Branching sunflower, pyracantha, chamisa and many other local plants hold on to their fall bounty until the birds pick them clean. You’ll sometimes even see robins eating pyracantha berries late in the winter. Those berries can last a while. Birds also eat seeds from pine cones, larvae stuck in tree bark and food at birdfeeders. Birds only eat when it’s light outside, so in colder months, birds are in the position of having to find more food in less time. Help birds make every beak-full count by feeding high fat foods. High fat foods include suet, seed cylinders loaded with sunflower and nuts, and a seed blend also containing lots of sunflower and nuts. Woodpeckers and Suet is rendered beef many other birds love fat and often comes in seed cylinders. prepackaged “cakes” mixed with nuts or bugs. Woodpeckers, nuthatches, bushtits and others love suet. Try feeding suet in any suet feeder — even a simple suet cage will do. Place it on a tree for best results. Suet-eating birds hang out in trees, so placing it where the birds are helps them to find it faster. Birds find food by sight. If your birds don’t find your suet cage after a few days try “gluing” some birdseed onto the cage with peanut butter to jump start activity. Seed-eating birds will find it first and hopefully that activity will catch the eye of the suet eaters. Sometimes you have to “teach” birds to come to a feeder. But once they get it, they will keep coming back. Seed cylinders are my favorite way to feed the birds — and a high fat source of food for the birds. Good cylinders are a combination of sunflower and nuts and are held together with gelatin. Both seed eaters (like grosbeaks and chickadees) like cylinders, but so

icking a launch date for the 2013-14 ski season in Northern New Mexico can be a roll of the dice. In the case of Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort, the gamble began to take shape last spring, when the resort’s curators sat in front of a calendar and tried to figure out when to open their mountain hideaway for the hectic winter sports season. Right about the time that last winter’s snow was trickling away as runoff, the decision was made to open the resort’s skiing operations even earlier than usual. In its latest attempt to corner the market on the skiing itch, Sipapu will open for business Saturday. It is believed to be one of the earliest known opening dates in the state’s winter sports history. In fact, the only resort in the Southwest that poses a challenge to Sipapu is southern Colorado’s Wolf Creek Ski Area, which opened Nov. 6. Sipapu will offer half-off lift tickets and allow kids and seniors in for just $15. Adult rates are $20. “When we were trying to figure out when opening day should be,” says Sipapu media relations contact Stacey Glaser, “we knew we basically wanted to up the ante on anything we’d done before. We traditionally are the first to open, but we wanted to start even earlier if we could.” Opening day is usually reserved for the Saturday before the Thanksgiving holiday. This trumps it by a full week, a start that suggests a plentiful early dump of snow. Not true. Billed as a laid-back alternative to the busy ski resorts that surround it, Sipapu has been abuzz with activity the last few weeks. It just hasn’t gotten much of a break in the form of a bountiful early snowstorm. Aside from a blast of winter air about two weeks ago, conditions on the mountain have been almost too pleasant to think about skiing. But, as Glaser says, the show will go on. Situated in the rolling mountains not far from two of the

state’s most popular ski resorts — Taos Ski Valley and Angel Fire — Sipapu features quaint amenities, with log cabins, cozy apartments and dorm-like lodging among the forested base near N.M. 518. Sipapu makes up for its lack of black-diamond runs and high-speed lifts with affordable tickets, family oriented lodging, uncongested slopes and plenty of alternatives to traditional skiing. The marketing approach isn’t meant to attract the masses. Instead, the resort aims for people who want to avoid the crowds and take advantage of a more traditional setting that offers most of the modern perks — albeit on a smaller scale. A ski bike option, for instance, is one of the few quirks that Sipapu embraces. Rather than using snowboards or skis, patrons can buy a lift ticket and rent a modified mountain bike to navigate the slopes. But don’t be fooled. To pull off the early opening, it takes the work of a snow-making wizard. For the last month or so, no one has worked harder than mountain manager John Paul Bradley and his tireless crew. They have been on the clock virtually 24/7 since mid-October, making artificial snow and installing a new ski lift to replace a previous model installed in 1962. Bradley says he cranked up the first of his snow guns Oct. 17 after an exhaustive scan of the moun-

s I write this, the sun is out and the temperature is headed back into the 60s. But, while we still are enjoying these beautiful mid-fall days, winter has already shown its face and left its mark in the form of snow on the Sangre de Cristos, Jemez, Brazos, San Juans and other mountain ranges of Northern New Mexico and southern Colorado. Despite the general overall drying and warming trend the Southwest seems to be in, as we all know, this summer set many local precipitation records and the moisture has continued to flow this fall, which hopefully indicates a similarly wet winter. Thus we are launching “Snow Trax” two weeks earlier than normal and looking forward to a great season. Please feel free to drop me a line about topics you’d like to see addressed here, to comment about an article or just say hola. I’m at email@example.com. The column also will be running Daniel on The New Mexican’s website Gibson every week, so you can check on the local scene even if you are on Snow Trax the road or have distant friends planning to come visit. In fact, the paper has already run three significant snow sports stories — on snowshoeing, on the yurt ski hut system in the region and a look at all our local ski areas. They appeared in the paper’s annual magazine Winterlife and can be found online at www.santafenewmexican. com/magazines/winterlife. Now, a look at news and conditions from around the region as we head toward opening day. Perhaps the most significant regional development is the departure of Alejandro Blake from Taos Ski Valley. Grandson of the area’s legendary founder, Ernie Blake, “Hano,” as he is known, served as the special events director and summer operations manager of TSV. He and his sister, Adriana Blake, the administrative manager who handles the resort’s public relations, ushered in a generational change at TSV a handful of years ago. Quickly the resort dropped its policy of not allowing snowboarding, and the duo brought a welcome infusion of new energy and ideas to the secluded valley. Hano accepted an enticing job offer with online events ticketing company HoldMyTicket.com. Filling his role at TSV this season is Taos resident and mountain industry veteran Jonah Salloway. TSV reported a 31-inch base after the last storm and will open Nov. 28 to Dec. 1, then Thursdays-Sundays until Dec. 19. Early season adult lift tickets are $55. Expect to see Chairs 1 and 2, and lots of beginner and intermediate terrain available on opening day, with all lifts running from Dec. 19 onward. The most important infrastructure development

tain revealed the best places to start filling in with snow. Utilizing a fleet of 13 snow guns, Bradley’s crew has spent approxi-
mately 19 hours a day spraying strategic spots on the mountain. He says two guns placed in close proximity can produce a pile of snow 60- to 100-feet long and up to 15 feet deep. From there, snowcats move in and spread the product as far as it can, creating a base depth between 12 and 24 inches in several spots. “You wouldn’t believe how hard it is to make a bunch of white stuff people use to slide down a mountain,” Bradley says. “When we’re not doing that, it’s doing something to get the lift up and running.” The new lift is aptly called the Magic Carpet because that’s pretty much what it looks like. It is essentially a shoulder-width conveyor belt that slides 450 feet along the snow. It closely resembles a motorized walkway seen in most airport terminals. Bradley says it will be fully operational in time for Saturday’s launch. While he likes to boast about the new lift and all the other activity on the mountain, Bradley admits that his specialty is making snow. Because the weather in most towns is still warm enough to permit cargo shorts and lightweight shirts on most days, he says it has taken some serious research to figure out a way to keep Sipapu’s slopes packed with the fake stuff. Until Ol’ Man Winter starts cooperating, it’s up to him to fill the bare spots with what he can. During a recent interview, he tossed out terms like “wet ball temperature,” “vertical pumping pressure” and “ambient atmospheric conditions.” Within seconds, he can shake a casual conversationalist with the tricky scientific and mechanical engineering characteristics of covering high-desert mountain terrain with artificial snow. “Basically,” he says, “a standard day this time of year for me and my guys is like 12 to 20 hours. It’s crazy. It takes a lot of work but, really, everyone I’m working with is just like anyone showing up here to buy a lift ticket. We’re all skiers and snowboarders. We want this place to be in the best condition possible, and I don’t think anyone minds working

Birds: Feed in day Continued from Page B-5 do suet eaters such as woodpeckers. Cylinders last a while and they are a relatively clean way to feed the birds. The fact that cylinders are long lasting is especially important as we move into colder weather. Birds show up at feeders at daybreak. They’ve just made it through a long cold night and they need food early. If my birds had to wait until I was up and outside filling the feeders, I’m afraid they’d have to wait a while. So, I always have a couple of cylinders hanging so there is a steady source of
Trax: Ski Santa Fe is hiring Continued from Page B-5 was undertaken at Wolf Creek, which barely escaped a devastating fire last summer. The ski area replaced the aging twoseat Treasure lift with a high-speed quad named Treasure Stoke. As usual, it was hit by early snow and is already up and open daily. It kicked off operations Nov. 6 and has a 24-inch base. Adult lift tickets are $58. Its Nordic track has also been groomed and is open at no charge. Ski Santa Fe has received three or four snowfalls so far, and in the shade and on north-facing slopes, a nice base is accumulating. The ski area will host a job fair at La Casa Cafeteria from noon to 6 p.m. Friday and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. It is looking to fill both full-time and part-time positions, both indoors and outdoors. It plans to open Nov. 28, Thanksgiving Day. Angle Fire was able to begin snowmaking earlier this year than ever due to cold night temperatures — including several nights as the coldest locale in the nation — and has also received some snowfall. It will open Dec. 13. Other planned opening days: Red River opens Nov. 27-Dec. 1 and Dec 6-8, with daily operations beginning Dec. 13. Sandia Peak has been dusted a few times and will open when conditions permit. It will host a job fair from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Dec. 7 at the base lodge. Pajarito has a few inches on the ground and will open as soon as possible.
Ski Apache, down south, hopes to open Nov. 28. Durango Mountain Resort has added more snowmaking on the “frontside” slopes top to bottom to ensure decent early season skiing off the Purgatory Village Express — it’s high-speed six-pack chairlift. The resort also will offer dog sledding outings this winter. One-hour excursions along the Old Flume Trail will provide breathtaking views of Engineer Mountain and the Needles. The snowcat skiing operation run out of the resort, which accesses the largest catserved permit area in the state — 35,000 acres — with an excellent variety of steeps and deeps plus lots of moderate terrain, has changed ownership and name. It is now called San Juan Untracked. Durango will open Nov. 29. Telluride is planning to kick off the season Nov. 27 with $25 lift tickets and resume regular operations the next day. Crested Butte also will open Nov. 27. Staff and best friends have been getting face shots at Silverton Mountain since Sept. 23 (see the stills and video on their website) but don’t expect to open until Dec. 21. Moving even farther up the Rockies, things only get better. Arapaho Basin in central Colorado opened Oct. 13 and has an 18-inch base, while little-known and remote Grand Targhee, Wyo., has an enviable base of 39 inches. It opens Nov. 22.
Sipapu: New lift Continued from Page B-5 hard to see it happen.” Glaser says Sipapu’s mission isn’t to undercut the other resorts by opening early. In fact, she says, it’s a source of pride for their tiny resort to be first in line every winter. “When the decision was made, it had less to do about the competition and more to do with what we do on this mountain,” she says. “The truth is, our leaders are fully invested in our snowmaking system because they know that it’s the only way to get an opening this early. Everyone on this mountain is committed to delivering the best product available.” Just 10 years ago, Sipapu had only two snow guns. With more than a dozen now cranking almost nonstop, it has given the area a solid head start on parts of the mountain that otherwise take weeks to see enough natural snowfall to accommodate traffic. Bradley said the general topography of Sipapu’s terrain creates an unusual situation where it can actually be five to 10 degrees colder at the base than at the summit. Combine that with the logistical headaches of trying to pump enough water from the base up more than 1,000 vertical feet to the top, and it’s easy to see the challenge that awaits Bradley’s crew every day. “I can’t tell you how much time I spend looking at long-range forecasts on my computer,” he says. “If I had a crystal ball, I guess I wouldn’t have to do so much guessing about what shady parts of the mountain I need to spray with snow. All we can do is hope it stays cold enough for what we have to stick, then have a system come through and cover it with natural snow.” Until that day comes, it’s a constant battle to ensure the gamble made six months ago pays off when the first skiers show up this weekend.
food, even when I’m busy or feeling too lazy to fill feeders. Make sure your seed blend is mostly black-oil sunflower, which is a high-fat seed — think sunflower oil. Nuts, sunflower chips (sunflower without the shell) and suet nuggets are great additions to any good winter-type blend of birdseed. Anne Schmauss is the co-owner of Wild Birds Unlimited in Santa Fe. She and her sisters wrote the book For the Birds: A Month by Month Guide to Attracting Birds to Your Backyard. Her new book Birdhouses of the World will be out in April.

bigger. The wheels are centered and held securely in place by the lug nuts. TOM: Then we grease both surfaces before putting on the wheels. That usually helps a lot, at least for the six months or so until the next seasonal changeover. RAY: And if you do have a flat tire and need to change a wheel in some remote area, the advice you got is almost good. TOM: Yeah, almost. What you want to do is loosen the lug nuts a little bit -- not a lot! Maybe a quarter of the way off. And then drive the car quickly for a very short distance (like 10 feet) and stop abruptly. Then put it in reverse and do the same thing going backward. That usually will jolt the stuck wheel free so you can remove it.

TOM: What we do when we change a customer’s wheels in the snow belt is f irst take some sandpaper and clean off any rust or budding corrosion that we f ind on the inside of the hole in the wheel or on the outside of the hub protrusion. RAY: You don’t have to worry if you end up making the hole a little
