App improves control of prosthetics Amputee can program grip of bionic hands By Kathy Matheson

The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Doubleamputee Jason Koger used to fly hundreds of miles to visit a clinician when he wanted to adjust the grips on his bionic hands.

Now, he’s got an app. Koger came to Philadelphia this week to demonstrate the i-limb ultra revolution, a prosthetic developed by the British firm Touch Bionics. Using a stylus and an iPhone, Koger can choose any of 24 grip patterns that best suit his needs. It’s the latest evolution in equipment for Koger, a 34-year-old married father of three from Owensboro, Ky., who lost his hands in an all-ter-

rain vehicle accident in 2008. “Five years ago, I couldn’t pull my pants up by myself,” said Koger. “Today, I go hunting and do some of the things that I probably never imagined I could have done five years ago.” The technology indicates how rapidly the field of prosthetics is changing, benefiting patients from injured military members to victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. Practi-

tioners say increased government research in the wake of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is driving some of the advances. In Koger’s case, he was shocked by a downed power line. He went into a coma and had no idea until he woke up three days later that doctors had amputated both his limbs at midforearm.

Eliana Gladstein and her father, Mitch, of New Jersey take a rafting trip down the Rio Grande on Friday with Elisha McArthur of Kokopelli Rafting Adventures. They started at Quartzite, near Pilar, and floated for about three hours, traveling five miles to the Rio Arriba County line. The low flows on Rio Grande will impact the season’s rafting businesses.

hen the Rio Grande entered the San Luis Valley in Colorado on Tuesday, it was running at a swift 1,820 cubic feet per second. But when it hit the state line and crossed into New Mexico, it was at just 55 cfs. For rafting guides in Taos County, the gaunt river flow through the Rio Grande Gorge hits their businesses hard. “It’s damaged our ability to sell a product to tourists and create an economic boost to Taos County,” says Cisco Guevara, owner of Los Ríos River Runners. In recent weeks, Guevara has been especially outspoken about what he sees as an unfair agreement over sharing water that he believes hurts New Mexico — especially

Taos County. This time of year, the headwaters of the Rio Grande start to swell with runoff from the San Juan Mountains above Del Norte, Colo. But once the river hits the San Luis Valley, farmers this year are pulling 94 percent of the water to irrigate thirsty crops like alfalfa, which is selling at record prices. What’s left when the river crosses into New Mexico is a trickle compared to the flow 100 miles upstream. The 1938 Rio Grande Compact dictates how water from the river is shared among Colorado, New Mexico and Texas. But in drought years, Colorado’s annual obligation to New Mexico drops.

Kokopelli Rafting Adventures owner John Seiner, 38, wishes the measly 265 cubic feet per second of water trickling between the banks of the Rio Grande in the popular Race Course below Pilar were about five times that amount. “I’d love to have 1,500 cfs or more,” he said. But after more than a decade running white water in Northern New Mexico, he said, he and other outfitters have learned to adapt to being in the water sports business in times of drought. “We’re no strangers to low-water conditions,” he said. “We see that every year at the end of the year. You just have to go for it and take all the conditions and make the best of it.”

Campfires, smoking, open burning and fireworks will be banned on all state and unincorporated private lands beginning Wednesday due to extreme fire conditions, according to the New Mexico State Forestry Division. The state ban in all 33 counties doesn’t apply to federal, tribal or municipal lands. Counties also often impose their own fire restrictions. Santa Fe County approved an ordinance Tuesday declaring hazardous fire conditions and banning open burning, smoking and campfires in the county for the next 90 days. Fire Chief David Sperling told the County Commission in a memo that the measure was made necessary by “persistent and severe drought compounded by abnormally warm temperatures and frequent erratic spring winds.” Santa Fe National Forest spokesman Bruce Hill said Friday that forest officials have not yet imposed any restrictions due to the current fire danger, but “we’ll be discussing it Monday.” State Forester Tony Delfin said Friday that “high fire danger exists across much of New Mexico, and new fire starts are becoming difficult to control. I’m urging all state residents affected to follow the restriction guidelines to protect lives and property in their communities.” The state’s restrictions will remain

California drought accelerates fire season

530 bodies recovered; building collapse a huge blow to $20M industry

By John Rogers and Raquel Maria Dillon

The Associated Press

CAMARILLO, Calif. — It seemed that each time wind-driven embers sparked new blazes or a wall of fire leaped a Southern California hillside and came charging toward hundreds of homes, an army of firefighters was right there to either douse or direct the flames away from humanity. As a result, the fire that broke out Thursday quickly moved through the Camarillo Springs area without destroying a single home. Firefighters were hoping for the same success on Friday, as the fire raged out of control miles away near the coast. Fifteen structures in the area 50 miles northwest of Los Angeles sustained some damage, and other homes in a wooded area were being threatened Friday by the blaze that had roared across 43 square miles. Some 900 firefighters using engines, aircraft, bulldozers and other equipment had it just 20 percent contained. Since daybreak, the fire has nearly tripled in size. “That’s the way this fire has behaved, it has been a very fast-moving, feisty fire,” said Ventura County Fire Department spokesman Bill Nash. Overnight, Nash said firefighters plan to stockpile resources along a road that lies between the fire and Malibu, protecting homes on the fire’s eastern front. Of the thousands of homes threatened by flames, 15 have been damaged. The good fortune of the Camarillo Springs area wasn’t the result of luck or clairvoyance by firefighters. It came after years of planning and knowing that sooner or later just such a conflagration was going to strike. “When developers want to go into an area that is wildland, it’s

Bomb suspect died from shots, trauma

BOSTON — A suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings died from gunshot wounds and blunt trauma to his head and torso, a funeral director said Friday. Worcester funeral home owner Peter Stefan has 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s body and read details from his death certificate. The certificate cites Tsarnaev’s “gunshot wounds of torso and extremities” and lists the time of his death as 1:35 a.m. April 19, four days after the deadly bombing, Stefan said. Tsarnaev died after a gunfight with authorities who had launched a massive manhunt for him and his brother, ethnic Chechens from Russia who came to the United States

going to present a unique fire problem,” county fire spokesman Tom Kruschke said. “And you have to be prepared for that.” Camarillo Springs was well prepared. Its homes were built with sprinkler systems and fireproof exteriors from the roofs to the foundations. Residents are required to clear brush and other combustible materials to within 100 feet of the dwellings, and developers had to make sure the cul-de-sacs that fill the area’s canyons were built wide enough to accommodate the emergency vehicles seen on TV racing in to battle the flames. “All of our rooftops are concrete tile and all of the exteriors are stucco,” said Neal Blaney, a board member of The Springs Homeowners Association and a 15-year resident. “There’s no wood, so there’s almost no place for a flying ember to land and ignite something.” When the blaze broke out, Blaney said, volunteer emergency officers in the neighborhood gave the first alert to residents. As a result, when the flames got close, residents were ready

to get out of the way of firefighters. Residents in the area are also particularly vigilant about clearing brush from the hillsides next to their yards, Kruschke said. Normally, firefighters remind people in such areas to do that every June, but in Camarillo Springs people do it every few months. The work paid off this week. The type of blaze that hit the area usually doesn’t strike Southern California wildland until September or October, after the summer has dried out hillside vegetation. But the state has seen a severe drought during the past year, with the water content of California’s snowpack only 17 percent of normal. That created late-summer conditions by May, and when hot Santa Ana winds and high temperatures arrived this week, the spring flames that firefighters routinely knock down once or twice a year quickly roared up a hillside — out of control. “It’s just the beginning of May and we already have a 10,000-plus acre fire that’s burning intensely,” Kruschke said. “That doesn’t bode well for the rest of the season.”

The ruling was backed by all six justices who participated.

LOS ANGELES — An experimental, unmanned aircraft developed for the U.S. Air Force went hypersonic during a test off the Southern California coast, traveling at more than 3,000 mph, the Air Force said Friday. The X-51A WaveRider flew for more than three minutes under power from its exotic scramjet engine and hit a speed of Mach 5.1, or more than five times the speed of sound. Though the WaveRider was designed to reach Mach 6, or six times the speed of sound, program officials were satisfied with its performance in the latest test.

DHAKA, Bangladesh — In the aftermath of a building collapse that killed more than 530 people, Bangladesh’s garment manufacturers may face a choice of reform or perish. Home to five factories that supplied clothing to retailers in Europe and the United States, the shoddily constructed building’s collapse has put a focus on the high human price paid when Bangladeshi government ineptitude, Western consumer apathy and global retailing’s drive for the lowest cost of production intersect. Officials said Saturday that more than 530 bodies have been pulled from the wreckage of the eight-story Rana Plaza building that collapsed nine days ago, sparking desperate rescue efforts, a national outpouring of grief. The tragedy followed the deaths of 112 people five months ago in a blaze that swept through the Tazreen Fashions garment factory in Dhaka and the death of seven in a January blaze. With three disasters in quick succession, the reputation of Bangladesh’s $20 billion garment industry, already notorious for its low wages and dismal safety record, has plummeted. International clothing brands and retailers that said they could ensure worker safety in developing countries through self-regulation such as factory inspections have also suffered a blow to their credibility. Now, Bangladesh’s garment manufacturers fear that a backlash has been set in motion that threatens fortunes and livelihoods in a business that employs more than 3 million people and accounts for about 80 percent of the impoverished country’s exports. “It’s a crucial time for us,” said Atiqul Islam, president of the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association. “We are doing our best to improve the safety measures in the factories. We expect our buyers to bear with us and help us to overcome the current crisis. It’s not the time to turn away from us. That will hurt the industry and many of the workers will lose jobs.” The most potent warning so far has come from the European Union, which said it could restrict Bangladesh’s access to the crucial EU market if it fails to immediately take steps to ensure that basic labor standards are enforced. Bangladesh is a member of Europe’s “Everything But Arms” program for the world’s poorest nations that exempts it from quotas and tariffs on all exports to the 27-nation EU except armaments. The EU is Bangladesh’s single biggest market with exports of 8 billion euros in 2011, the bulk of which was garments shipped for European retailers. “The sheer scale of this disaster and the alleged criminality around the building’s construction is finally becoming clear to the world,” EU

foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton and trade commissioner Karel De Gucht said in an April 30 statement. They said they want any EU action to “incentivize” responsible management of the garment industry in Bangladesh. The United States is reviewing Bangladesh’s preferential trade status, a lengthy process that gained urgency after the killing last year of a Bangladeshi labor rights organizer who had campaigned for years to improve factory safety. Garments are not included in the American trade preferences for Bangladesh, but loss of its special market access would further taint its reputation in the U.S., its second largest export market. As a U.S. decision nears, the building collapse gives additional momentum to members of Congress who wrote to Bangladeshi Prime Minister Shiekh Hasina to protest a climate of fear created by the killing of Aminul Islam, the labor organizer, and lobbied thenU.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk to speed up a review of Bangladesh’s trade access following the Tazreen fire. Signs of dissension are also emerging among clothing brands and retailers who as a group have usually sought to distance themselves from industry disasters. The Bangladeshi garment association met earlier this week with representatives of 40 garment buyers including H&M, JC Penny, Gap, Nike, Li & Fung and Tesco. It said the companies have doubts about whether the industry can meet their production deadlines because of the disasters and political turmoil. The retailers themselves are criticized by labor groups for allegedly shoveling blame and making token efforts to ensure worker safety. A report by the AFL-CIO umbrella group of American unions published a day before the building collapse says retailers’ intermittent factory inspections and corporate social responsibility reports have failed, and hold “eerie parallels” with the financial selfregulation that helped precipitate the global financial crisis. The Bangladesh government, however, may be the least willing of all to accept any responsibility. “I am not worried,” Finance Minister Abul Maal Abdul Muhith said Friday. “These are individual cases of … accidents. It happens everywhere.”

companies and governments cut jobs. Manufacturing employment was flat. Friday’s report said the number of people who have been unemployed for more than six months dropped to 4.4 million. The job growth is occurring while the U.S. economy is growing modestly. It grew at a 2.5 percent annual rate in the January-March quarter, fueled by the strongest consumer spending in two years. Yet the global economy, by contrast, is slowing. The European Union warned Friday, for example, that the 17 countries that use the euro will shrink by a collective 0.4 percent this year. And unemployment in the eurozone is 12.1 percent. In Greece and Spain, it’s roughly 27 percent. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and European Central Bank President Mario Draghi suggested that governments need to focus on stimulating growth.

Officials: Israel launches airstrike By Lolita C. Baldor

The Associated Press

John Seiner, left, owner of Kokopelli Rafting Adventures, and employee Josh Lee set up a kayak Friday at their new store location, 802 Early St. Their hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week. They lead tours down the Rio Grande, Rio Chama, Arkansas River and Colorado River. They had a grand opening Friday evening. JANE PHILLIPS/THE NEW MEXICAN

Outfitter: Company shifts trip locales Continued from Page A-1 Seiner said Kokopelli adapts in a number of ways. It runs smaller, lighter boats that are easier to navigate in low water and offers inflatable kayak trips, which allow thrill-seekers who navigate their own small crafts to milk every drop of adrenaline out of rapids that might seem tame from the safety of a guided raft. “Low water is a great time to learn kayaking,” Seiner said, adding that the water is warmer, it’s less intimidating and it’s a great time to work on technique. The company also shifts locales, running more trips on the Rio Chama — which often swells in drought years when water kept in reserve at El Vado Lake is released — and offering stand-up paddle boarding adventures on flat stretches of the river or local lakes. Seiner said he also shifts his staff — 10 full-time guides, several part-time guides and three office workers — back

and forth between Santa Fe and his other location in Salida, Colo., where he offers tours on the Arkansas River. Other outfitters and “private” boaters also go north in low-water years, Seiner said, heading to Pagosa Springs, Colo., to run the Piedra River or Durango to run the Animas River. Seiner — who bought Kokopelli in 2004 — recently moved his headquarters from the southwest side of the intersection of Cerrillos Road and St. Francis Drive to a new location a few hundred yards east on Early Street. On Friday, he held a grand opening party and boat swap to celebrate the addition of a retail component to his business. The store will sell inflatable kayaks, play boats, paddle boards, oars, camping equipment specific to river runners, splash gear, helmets, personal flotation devices, apparel and more. “The guide service is pri-

marily for tourists,” he said. “Now we’re expanding to serve local people who are getting into the sport. There are a lot of boaters here, five or six Grand [Canyon] guides, San Juan boaters, Rio Chama boaters, hordes of private boaters. People want a place to pick up raft glue, etc.” Seiner admitted he is “a little nervous” to be taking on a new endeavor in what it appears will be a low-water year. But he said he has cooperative agreements with vendors that lessen some of the risk, and he’s hoping the fact that some of the items he’ll be selling are currently only available through mail order will be in his favor. And hope springs eternal in the heart of a high desert river runner. Despite predictions that water levels in the Rio Grande are expected to be about half what they are in a normal year, Seiner is still optimistic that conditions could change. For one thing, he said, it’s

cold enough that there could still be untapped snowpack in the high mountains that will melt and swell tributaries that feed the Rio Grande. “We may still get more out of Red River, the Rio Pueblo or Costilla Creek,” he said. And there’s always the unpredictability of mother nature to rely upon. Spring snows in Northern New Mexico are not unheard of. “We want a huge dump in Wolf Creek,” Seiner said. “Negative media and drought talk” aside, Seiner said, tourists who come to New Mexico to go rafting usually have fun regardless of the water levels. “They go outside and have a great time,” he said. “Something about being on the river just makes people happy. I don’t know if it’s the moving water or the sunshine or what.” Contact Phaedra Haywood at 986-3068 or phaywood@ sfnewmexican.com.

Trickle: Businesses target alternate clients Continued from Page A-1 with calculating how much water can be diverted from the Rio Grande before it leaves the state. According to Cotten, the flows on the Rio Grande are expected to be about 50 percent of normal this year. Under the compact, he says, Colorado is only required to deliver 21 percent of the water in the Rio Grande to New Mexico in 2013. Because their obligation to New Mexico is tallied over the whole year, Cotten says, Coloradans normally let 100 percent of the river flow to New Mexico in winter when it’s not needed to irrigate (and few people are rafting). But come spring, farmers pump like crazy to ensure a good crop yield. The trouble for outfitters like Guevara is that the major irrigation coincides with the start of his rafting season. While river levels are expected to rise somewhat as the weather warms (streamflow gauges spiked earlier this week when temperatures rose), guides don’t expect this to be anything close to a banner year on the Rio Grande. From the state line flow of 55 cfs Monday, the Rio Grande jumped to 238 cfs just beyond the river’s confluence with the Rio Pueblo, thanks to tributary streams and springs. That flow rate is still just a third of the median for this time of year. Guevara says it’s enough water for a relatively mild float through lower rafting sections like the Race Course below Pilar, where raft trips are already happening. But he says avid white-water enthusiasts prefer to run the Taos Box section of the river, which covers a particularly remote and thrilling section of the recently designated Rio Grande del Norte National Monument.

Eliana Gladstein and her father, Mitch, of New Jersey take a rafting trip down the Rio Grande on Friday with Elisha McArthur of Kokopelli Rafting Adventures. While river levels are expected to rise somewhat as the weather warms (streamflow gauges spiked earlier this week when temperatures rose), guides don’t expect this to be anything close to a banner year on the Rio Grande. CLYDE MUELLER/THE NEW MEXICAN

“At high water, when The Box comes up, it’s like the jungle drums start going,” says Billy Blackstock, with Far Flung Adventures. “Everybody calls and everybody’s busy.” Unfortunately for the guides, the river flow needs to be at least five times as high as it was Tuesday before The Box is even close to runable, Guevara says, and it may only hit that mark for a couple weeks this year at the peak of runoff. That’s a short window to market to people who might be excited to visit one of the highlights of the brandnew national monument. Instead, river flow right now is perfect for a casual float with families and kids, Guevara says. “We have a product to sell, but it’s limited when you can’t do the world famous Taos Box.” Steve Miller, from New Wave Rafting, says not running The Box can cut his business by as much as half, meaning he hires fewer people and can accommodate fewer guests. “It puts a real dent in the business,” Miller says.

Like Guevara, Miller says the recent monument designation could lead to some changes in how water is allocated. The presidential proclamation establishing the monument specifically says it does not affect existing water agreements, but Miller says the federal government may have increased interest in ensuring decent river flow through the gorge. Still, it’s unclear how much clout a handful of rafting companies will have when it comes to persuading Colorado farmers to give up valuable irrigation water. As Miller put it, those farmers “measure their water by the teaspoon,” and aren’t likely to give anything up. While there are some local efforts to alter delicate water pacts, no one expects things to change soon, meaning low stream flows will continue to be the status quo during drought. Embudo river guide Billy Miller, who owns Big River Raft Trips, says he’s expecting the stream flow to stay low throughout his season, and he even bought new rafts to

handle shallower water. Billy Miller says surviving as a business means attracting the right group. “The people who know about white water — the 33-year-old adrenaline junkie — that guy doesn’t go rafting this year, but his family does.” While reservations in a dry year tend to be down, Billy Miller expects to pick up plenty of walk-in clients who decide to go rafting as a part of a trip to the area. Aside from his business, Billy Miller worries about the health of the river during times of low stream flow. He’s concerned about the health of riparian areas on the riverbank that rely on water to allow flora and fauna to survive in an otherwise arid environment. If the ecological health of the greenbelt along the river is endangered, it could be another blow to the river and the guides trying to capitalize on National Monument status to bring new visitors to Taos. “It affects everything,” Billy Miller says. “If there’s no water, there’s no tourists. If there’s no tourists, there’s no money.”

WASHINGTON — Israel launched an airstrike into Syria, apparently targeting a suspected weapons site, U.S. officials said Friday night. The strike occurred overnight Thursday into Friday, the officials told The Associated Press. It did not appear that a chemical weapons site was targeted, they said, and one official said the strike appeared to have hit a warehouse. The U.S. officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. Israel has targeted weapons in the past that it believes are being delivered to the Lebanonbased militant group Hezbollah. Earlier this week, Hezbollah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah said his group would assist Syrian President Bashar Assad if needed in the effort to put down a 2-year-old uprising. Israeli Embassy spokesman Aaron Sagui would not comment Friday night specifically on the report of an Israeli strike into Syria. “What we can say is that Israel is determined to prevent the transfer of chemical weapons or other game-changing weaponry by the Syrian regime to terrorists, specially to Hezbollah in Lebanon,” Sagui said in an email to the AP. In 2007, Israeli jets bombed a suspected nuclear reactor site along the Euphrates River in northeastern Syria, an attack that embarrassed and jolted the Assad regime and led to a buildup of the Syrian air defense system. Russia provided the hardware for the defense systems upgrade and continues to be a reliable sup-

plier of military equipment to the Assad regime. The airstrike, first reported by CNN, came hours before President Barack Obama told reporters at a news conference in Costa Rica on Friday that he didn’t foresee a scenario in which the U.S. would send troops to Syria. More than 70,000 peoples have died and hundreds of thousands have fled the country as the Assad regime has battled rebels. The Israeli strike also follows days of renewed concerns that Syria might be using chemical weapons against opposition forces. Obama has characterized evidence of the use of chemical weapons as a “gamechanger” that would have “enormous consequences.” While the U.S. has been providing nonlethal aide to opposition forces in Syria, even stepping up that form of support in recent days, the Obama administration has resisted calls from some American lawmakers to arm the rebels or to work to establish a no-fly zone to aid the insurgency. On Thursday, however, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said the administration is rethinking its opposition to providing arms to the rebels. He said it was one of several options as the U.S. consults with allies about steps to be taken to drive Assad from power. Officials in the administration who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss strategy said earlier this week that arming the opposition forces was seen as more likely than any other military option. Obama followed Hagel’s comments by saying options will continue to be evaluated, though he did not cite providing arms specifically.

Prayers: Leaders urge practical acts Continued from Page A-1 the spiritual world, that they’ll be able to provide us resources throughout the year. “We’re not giving up. That’s pretty much all we can do at this point,” Pino said. In its wake, the drought has left farmland idle, herds of cattle have been decimated, the threat of wildfire has intensified and cities are thinking twice about the sustainability of their water supplies. In New Mexico, the renewed interest in the divine and the tension with Mother Nature stems from nearly three years of hot, dry weather. There is no place in the country right now that has it worse than New Mexico. The latest federal drought map shows conditions are extreme or worse across nearly 82 percent of the state. There are spots that have fallen behind in rainfall by as much as 24 inches, causing rivers to run dry and reservoirs to dip to record low levels. In neighboring Texas and Oklahoma, the story is no different. The faithful gathered Wednesday night in Oklahoma City to recite a collection of Christian, Muslim and Jewish prayers for the year’s first worship service dedicated to rain. The Catholic bishop in Lubbock is planning a special Mass at a local farm in two weeks so that farmers can have their seeds and soil blessed. The archbishop of New Mexico’s largest diocese has turned to the Internet and social media to urge parishioners to pray. The prayer is simple: “Look to our dry hills and fields, dear God, and bless them with the living blessing of soft rain. Then the land will rejoice and rivers will sing your praises, and the hearts of all will be made glad. Amen.” In Bernalillo, the parishioners from Our Lady of Sorrows church recited the rosary as they walked a few blocks from the church to the irrigation canal on a recent Friday evening. At the front of the procession, two men carried an effigy of San Isidro, the patron

saint of farmers. “I think people need to pray for rain,” said Orlando Lucero, a schoolteacher and county commissioner who organized the procession. “We used to do it in every community and in every parish. It was a beautiful tradition that disappeared. Now I’m hoping that we can get other parishes involved.” In Clovis, hospital administrator and active church member Hoyt Skabelund hopes thousands join Sunday’s prayer day. “I don’t know that moisture comes because we pray,” he said. “You’re going to have ebbs and flows and not all rainfall is because someone prayed and not all droughts are because someone didn’t pray. But I do believe that prayers are answered and faith in God and a higher power unlocks the powers of heaven.” After all, praying can’t hurt, he said. The simple act of digging a new post hole in Eastern New Mexico tells the story of how dry it is. Moist dirt used to turn up several inches below the surface. Now, Skabelund said, someone can dig several feet and not run into any moisture. In dry times, it’s natural for farmers and others who depend on the land to turn to God, said Laura Lincoln, executive director of the Texas Conference of Churches. Still, she and others said praying doesn’t take away the responsibility of people to do what they can to ease the effects of drought. Church leaders are urging their parishioners to conserve water and use better land-management practices like rotating crops. “We have to play our part,” said the Rev. William Tabbernee, head of the Oklahoma Conference of Churches. “Prayer puts us in touch with God, but it also helps us to focus on the fact that it is a partnership that we’re involved in. We need to cooperate with God and all of humanity to be responsible stewards of the gifts God has given us through nature.”

LOCAL NEWS County assessor seeks N.M. auditor job Martinez to run for statewide position for another term By Steve Terrell The New Mexican

Santa Fe County Assessor Domingo Martinez, a former state auditor, says he will run again for the statewide position. The 60-year-old Democrat, who is finishing his second term as county assessor, served two four-year terms as state auditor beginning in 1999. Current State Auditor Hector Balderas, who has announced he will run for the Democratic nomination as state attorney general in 2014, couldn’t seek re-election as auditor due to term limits. Martinez has the distinction of being the first public official to find evidence suggesting corruption on the part of former state Treasurer Robert Vigil, who ended up serving time in a federal prison. During his first term as auditor, Martinez

ordered an audit of Vigil’s years as state auditor in the 1990s. That audit uncovered possible violations of state laws, including the filtering of money to a former assistant through an accounting company and money going to a nonprofit Domingo group headed by Vigil’s wife. Martinez State police forwarded the investigation to the FBI, with the state police chief saying Martinez’s audit showed “strong patterns of public corruption” during Vigil’s tenure. But no charges were filed. Vigil, who went on to be elected state treasurer in 2002 despite the publicity surrounding Martinez’s audit report, dismissed the audit was the result of a “vendetta” by Martinez. But before Vigil’s first term in office was over, he was indicted on federal corruption charges — unrelated to the findings in Martinez’s report — and eventually served time in prison.

As county assessor, Martinez sometimes has butted heads with the Santa Fe County Commission over funding for his office, though those differences seem to have been smoothed over. When he first took office in 2007, Martinez said he found thousands of properties in the county that weren’t assessed at correct values. His office has re-examined about 29,000 parcels in the past five years. This year, the county brought in an outside firm to help complete the process. Martinez is a Santa Fe native who got a degree in accounting from the College of Santa Fe and a master’s in public administration from The University of New Mexico. In addition to his elected positions, Martinez has worked as a staffer in the State Auditor’s Office and in the state Tax and Revenue Department. Contact Steve Terrell at sterrell@ sfnewmexican.com.

Easter on ‘Eastern’ time

Dueling calendars cause Greek Orthodox Church to celebrate Holy Week after most Christians

By Chris Quintana The New Mexican

E

aster has come and gone for most Christians, but not for members of St. Elias the Prophet Greek Orthodox Church. They will celebrate Easter this Sunday at their church, 46 Calle Electra, on the edge of the Eldorado subdivision. The Greek Orthodox Holy Week began with Palm Sunday on April 28. A series of four services, called the “bridegroom services,” started Sunday night and finished Wednesday. Christ is called the bridegroom in the Greek Orthodox tradition because he gave his life for the people of God, as a husband does for his family. Those services were followed by the Good Friday procession May 3. Followers decorated a wooden structure known as the kouvouklion, which symbolizes Christ’s tomb, with flowers and pictures of loved ones and carried it around the church, mourning Jesus as well as deceased friends and family. The tradition of decorating the tomb with pictures originated on the Greek island of Karpathos, said the Rev. Dimitri Pappas of St. Elias the Prophet. “It’s a lost tradition in America.” On the Saturday night before Easter, Orthodox people attend a late-night service. At midnight, Pappas will announce the resurrection, and the congregation will break their Lenten fast with a small feast and then return home in preparation for Easter services. After Sunday services, the parishioners will feast on lamb and eat red Easter eggs. Members of the Greek Orthodox Church paint Easter eggs, like many other Christians, but usually their eggs are colored a deep scarlet to represent Christ’s blood. Before they eat their eggs, they tap them against their neighbors’ eggs. The person whose egg survives the custom uncracked is believed to get all the luck in the coming year. The separate Easter observance of the Eastern church is a mystery to many Christians. Easter is supposed to fall on the first Sunday following the

first full moon on or after the vernal, or spring, equinox. Both the Eastern (Greek) Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church agree on this. The problem is that the two churches follow different calendars — and the Orthodox Church observes the paschal full moon on a date based on a complex historical table, not the actual lunar cycle. The Eastern and Western branches of the church have

operated as separate entities since the Great Schism in A.D. 1054. When Pope Gregory XIII adopted the Gregorian calendar in 1582, to correct discrepancies between the calendar year and a solar year, the Eastern Orthodox Church remained on the old Julian calendar. That calendar now lags 13 days behind the Gregorian calendar. While Western churches observe the spring equinox on

Downtown road work enters new phase

Santa Fe child lands in national magazine

The road construction project that has created a bottleneck for traffic on the north side of downtown Santa Fe for nearly two months enters a new phase next week.

March 21, the Eastern Orthodox Church observes it 13 days later, or April 3 on the Gregorian calendar. And because the moon was full on March 27 this year, putting Easter on March 31 for most Christian churches, Orthodox churches couldn’t hold Easter celebrations until after the next full moon, which fell on April 25 on the Gregorian calendar. However, the Orthodox churches marked the paschal full moon on April 18 on their Julian calendar — which was actually 13 days later on the Gregorian calendar, or May 1. Some years, the Easter celebrations match up, as they will in 2014 and 2017, said the Rev. Dimitri Pappas of St. Elias the Prophet. But this year, a lateMarch full moon meant an early Easter for Western churches and later celebration for the Eastern Church — a difference of more than a month. Pappas said the Easter celebration at St. Elias the Prophet Greek Orthodox Church, which starts at noon Sunday, will be open to the public. “We’re open to everybody,” Pappas said. “That’s the beauty of Orthodoxy.”

Bank workers earn $10M in stock plan after merger First National Bank of Santa Fe and Strategic Growth Bancorp join forces By Bruce Krasnow The New Mexican

A merger between First National Bank of Santa Fe and Strategic Growth Bancorp was finalized Friday, and the bank named Michelle Coons as its new president. As part of the transaction, some 200 employees who have held First National Bank of Santa Fe stock under an Employee Stock Ownership Plan will be paid more than $10 million, said Kenneth McCormick, who oversees the New Mexico banking business for Strategic Growth Bancorp. The employee stock plan comprised 10 percent of First National’s ownership and gave many longtime workers an incentive for staying. “The plan was established to Michelle Coons nurture and recognize employees,” said Greg Ellena, the bank’s chief executive officer. McCormick said the payouts have been funded, and employees will receive a check in coming days. Chartered in 1870, First National is the oldest bank in the Southwest and has some 20,000 depositors, said Laura Altomare, vice president for marketing. She said Friday was Ken Customer Appreciation Day, and McCormick she saw one depositor whose has had an account since 1937. “We have customers for decades and decades, and then their children and grandchildren,” she said. Ellena said the regional banking consortium will be a boost to employees, who now have more options for advancement, and customers, who gain access to more branches, services and the latest technology. “With an already strong financial standing, we are now poised to effectively compete with the largest national banks, while retaining our community roots and local sensitivity,” Ellena said. One of the local connections who returns is Coons. The University of New Mexico graduate was president of Wells Fargo Bank-Santa Fe from 1983 to 2006, and then a commercial banking manager at Bank of the West. At Wells Fargo, she oversaw the growth of assets from $40 to $400. She also chaired the United Way campaign in Santa Fe County, served on the St. Vincent Hospital Foundation board and was president of the Association of Commerce and Industry, a business trade group in Albuquerque. She still serves on the UNM Foundation board. At Bank of the Rio Grande last year, Coons used her lending expertise to put the financing package together for renovation of La Fonda on the Plaza. She said Friday that she is looking forward to renewing friendships throughout the Santa Fe business community. “Banks have money to lend, and we want every good deal out there,” she said. Strategic Growth Bancorp was founded in 2009 by William Sanders, a real-estate investor with ties to Chicago and El Paso. His firm acquired Bank of the Rio Grande in Las Cruces with three branches and $82 million in deposits in 2011, and raised $200 million from private investors for other bank acquisitions in the Southwest. An investment banker who headed LaSalle Partners from 1968 to 1989, Sanders made his fortune in Chicago and then came to Santa Fe and launched Security Capital Group in 1991, a real-estate investment company. That was sold in 2002 to GE Capital — a deal estimated at $5.4 billion. Sanders still owns ranch land in the Lamy area. His son, Pablo Sanders, co-founder and managing director of operations for Strategic Growth, is a 1995 graduate of Santa Fe Preparatory School. Pablo Sanders has an MBA from Harvard, according to the El Paso Times, which published a profile on the firm in April 2012. Pablo Sanders told the Times that Strategic Growth Bancorp wants to provide loans and financial services through community banks that can keep their local names and decision-making autonomy. The El PasoLas Cruces region and New Mexico are growth corridors — especially for Hispanics. “If you look at the demographics and growth, this is where you want to be building a business,” he told the newspaper. With the addition of First National Bank of Santa Fe, Strategic Growth now has assets of $2 billion and 31 branches stretching from El Paso to Longmont, Colo. McCormick said the company will likely take a breather as it works to integrate the First National Bank of Santa Fe, which also has a branch in Denver. “This bank is the cornerstone of our North-South strategy,” McCormick said.

fund the waterline extension will be covered by a grant from the State Water Trust Board. Santa Fe County will fund the balance of the project via a cash match and in-kind donations.

Santa Fe County will begin collecting data on surface water and groundwater in the area of the La Cienega/ La Cieneguilla Spring and the lower Santa Fe watershed with the assistance of the State Water Trust Board. The purpose of the project is to enhance understanding of the interaction between surface water and groundwater in that area. About $121,500 of the total project cost of $148,500 will come from a grant from the Water Trust Board. Santa Fe County will pay for the balance of the project via cash and inkind donations.

For more information about the new legislation, contact Santa Fe County Deputy Assessor Gary Perez at 986-6332 or gperez@santafecountynm.gov.

SANTA FE SURGEONS HELP DELIVER BADLY NEEDED CARE IN AFRICA

Staff at the hospital in Debre Markos, Ethiopia, in surgery. Last year, Shapiro spent three months of his first year of retirement volunteering in the hospital. PHOTOS COURTESY DR. RAY SHAPIRO

‘We need more people out there’ By RoGeR SnodGRaSS FoR The new Mexican

Ray Shapiro had his first experience as a surgeon in the developing world 40 years ago during a five-month sojourn in Mitú, a remote border outpost on the Rio Vaupes in southeastern Colombia. “I did a couple of surgeries there with a bucket of water out of the river and laundry detergent,” he said in a recent interview. “One was an appendectomy; the other was an incarcerated hernia. Both patients did pretty well.” Last year, Shapiro spent three months of his first year of retirement volunteering in a district hospital in Debre Markos, Ethiopia. Before he heads out again, possibly to a trauma center in Mongolia later this year, he attended a conference at the University of Utah on bringing affordable surgery and anesthesia to the Third World. What he has learned so far is that despite promising advances in global health, there is still an enormous unmet need. “Two billion people don’t have access to a surgeon, so people die of appendicitis or a bowel obstruction, because no one is there,” he said. “We need more people out there.” A third-generation doctor whose parents traveled a lot, Shapiro got a taste for far-flung destinations at an early age and nurtured that interest with dozens of trips across the globe during his career. So it was not surprising that when he retired after 32 years at Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center in Santa Fe, he began to think about spending a part of his free time working out of the country. It happens that Santa Fe has some prominent advisers in this field. One is Stephen Joseph, formerly New York City commissioner of health, dean of the University of Minnesota School of Public Health and, later, undersecretary of defense, who began his career as a pediatric clinician and a bush physician and continues to work as an independent consultant, planning, evaluating and advising on international health projects. Among many other responsibilities, he is a member of the board of directors of both the African Medical Research and Education Foundation (AMREF) and AMREF-USA. A friend of his, Thomas Rees, also a Santa Fe resident, was one of the three young reconstructive surgeons who founded the Flying Doctors Service of East Africa in Nairobi in 1957, which became the outreach arm of AMREF, now the largest health organization in Africa. Joseph said he met Rees while having a knee-replacement procedure in the hospital. Both men were patients of the same doctor and both published books the same week. Joseph credits Rees with recommending him for the board of AMREF. Board meetings would take him to Africa from time to time, and he would add on some extra work through the foundation, usually out in a district hospital. “It’s a tough job,” Joseph said, “and you find wonderful people who deserve the best health they can get.” Shapiro in turn credits Joseph for connecting him to AMREF by putting him in touch with the surgical outreach director in Nairobi. “He was an Ethiopian and was kind of scouting around for something for me to do.” According to the CIA World Factbook for 2012, Ethiopia ranks as one of poorest countries in the world. During his time in Debre

Markos, a city of about 70,000 people located some four hours northwest of the capital Addis Ababa, Shapiro worked with the only surgeon, one of the 10 doctors at the hospital serving an area population of 3.5 million, mostly subsistence farmers. “He took care of pretty much what came through the door — prostatectomies [prostate gland removal] and cleft palates, abdominal surgery, fractures, dead bone removal,” Shapiro said. “Most people walked for several days to get there, and the ones who survived the trip to the hospital did pretty well.” Shapiro found himself in a place where he was able to develop wonderful relationships, but also one in which the medical environment and treatment options were severely affected by the pervasive poverty. “We had at least two people who came to visit the hospital while I was there who nearly passed out on the tour, and I had to take them outside and give them some fresh air,” Shapiro said. “These were medical people from the states that just couldn’t handle the pain, the suffering, the filth, the smell.” This visit took place during the rainy season, when it rained every day. “People don’t have shoes. They don’t have shelter. They have a blanket and a stick,” he said. In 1980, the director-general of the World Health Organization at the time, Halfdan Mahler, warned a World Congress of International Surgeons in Mexico City that the shortage of surgical resources was “the most serious manifestation of social inequity in health care.” More recently, writing in the World Journal of Surgery in 2008, Paul Farmer, a Harvard medical anthropologist and apostle of the world’s poor, called surgery the “neglected stepchild of global public health.” The argument has sharpened in recent years with additional evidence about the disparity between the global burden of disease represented by surgical categories like congenital malformation and trauma com-

pared to the higher priorities that have been afforded for fighting the “more popular” and perhaps more politically profitable health problem of communicable diseases. More radical critics also have called attention, for example, to the amount of money spent in end-of-life surgery in the first world, compared to money in the category for world health resources known as emergency and essential surgical care, which many feel can be cost effective. Shapiro said his primary concern these days is trying to make people aware that affordable surgery is possible on the global level. He illustrated the point with another anecdote from Ethiopia, having to do with a woman, identified by a colleague, who lived in a village in the north. “This woman was a beggar on the street and a leper,” he said. “She’d lost both her legs to leprosy below the knee, plus several fingers, and she had a big tumor growing out of a stump on one leg.” The woman was two days away from Debre Markos by public transportation. Shapiro told his colleague if they could find a way to get her to the hospital, he could certainly remove the tumor. The colleague gave some money to the woman’s grandson, who borrowed a wheelchair and accompanied her on the bus, and she spent a few nights in a bed donated by the Mother Theresa Orphanage before Shapiro could get her into the hospital for the surgery, keeping her there for four days afterward. “I paid for her hospitalization, the operation, medication and son’s food, and their transportation back home,” Shapiro said. “It cost me a hundred dollars for all of that. Here, I don’t know how many thousands it would cost.” “You can do it more inexpensively. You don’t have to have all the fancy stuff to make an impact on people’s lives,” Shapiro said.

Getting kids outdoors E/The Environmental Magazine

Question: My kids just want to play videos games and watch TV all day. Do you have any tips for getting them outside to appreciate nature more? — Sue Levinson, Bowie, Md. Answer: Getting kids away from computer and TV screens and outside into the fresh air is an increasing challenge for parents everywhere. Researchers have found that U.S. children today spend about half as much time outdoors as their counterparts did 20 years ago. The Kaiser Family Foundation reports that kids aged 8 to 18 spend on average more than 71/2 hours a day — or more than 53 hours per week — engaging with so-called entertainment media. Meanwhile, the Children & Nature Network, a nonprofit founded by writers and educators concerned about “nature deficit disorder,” finds that in a typical week, only 6 percent of American kids aged 9 to 13 play outside on their own. Richard Louv, a founding board member of the Children & Nature Network and author of the book Last Child in the Woods, said kids who stay inside too much can suffer from “nature deficit disorder,” which can contribute to a range of behavioral problems, including attention disorders, depression and declining creativity as well as physical problems like obesity. Louv blames parental paranoia about potential dangers lurking outdoors and restricted access to natural areas, combined with the lure of video games, websites and TV. Of course, one of the keys to getting kids to appreciate nature is for parents to lead by example by getting off the couch and into the outdoors themselves. Since kids love being with their parents, why not take the fun outside? For those kids who need a little extra prodding beyond following a parent’s good example, the National Wildlife Federation, a leading national nonprofit dedicated to preserving and appreciating wildlife, offers suggestions and other resources through its “Be Out There” campaign. One tip is to pack an “explorer’s kit” — complete with a magnifying glass, binoculars, containers for collecting, field guides, a notebook, bug repellent and Band-Aids — into a backpack and leave it by the door to facilitate spontaneous outdoor adventures. Another idea is to set aside one hour each day as “green hour,” during which kids go outside exploring, discovering and learning about the natural world. The National Wildlife Federation’s online Activity Finder helps parents discover fun outdoor activities segmented by age. Examples include going on a conifer quest and making a board displaying the different types of evergreen trees in the neighborhood, turning an old soda bottle into a terrarium and building a wildlife brush shelter. Another great source of inspiration is the Children & Nature Network, which, during the month of April, encourages people of all ages to spend more time outdoors at various family friendly events as part of its nationwide “Let’s Get Outside” initiative. Visitors to the Children & Nature Network website (www.children andnature.org) can scroll through dozens of events within driving distance of most Americans — and anyone can register an appropriate event there as well. Researchers have found that children who play outside more are in better shape, more creative, less aggressive and show better concentration than their couch-potato counterparts — and that the most direct route to environmental awareness for adults is participating in wild nature activities as kids. So do yourself and your kid(s) a favor, and take a hike! Send questions to: earthtalk@emagazine.com.

In brief

UNM law school appoints dean

ALBUQUERQUE — The University of New Mexico law school has a new dean. The school announced the appointment of David Herring on Friday. Herring replaces Kevin Washburn, who was appointed last year as the assistant secretary of Indian Affairs with the U.S. Department of Interior. Herring is a law professor at the University of Pittsburgh, where he served as dean of the law school from 1998 to 2005. He also founded and served as the first director of the school’s clinical legal education program.

Crackdown on seat belts set New Mexico is teaming up with other states as part an effort to get drivers along historic Route 66 to wear their seat belts. The crackdown begins Friday and will last 24 hours. The effort started in 2010 with a handful of law-enforcement agencies in central Oklahoma. It has now expanded to include highway patrol troopers, state police officers and other agencies in eight states along the famed “Mother Road.” New Mexico State Police Chief Robert Shilling says seat belts are the best way for drivers and passengers to protect themselves. Federal statistics show motorists are 75 percent less likely to be killed in rollover crashes if they are buckled up.

Oil, gas and wind producers have been developing habitat conservation plans in hopes that the grouse is not listed.

S.F. forest offers firewood permits Santa Fe National Forest offices are selling permits to cut dead and downed trees for firewood for personal use. Forest officials say the permits went on sale earlier this week and cost $20 for five cords of wood. Information on firewood areas is available at the forest headquarters in Santa Fe at 505438-5300, or at ranger stations in Coyote, Cuba, Las Vegas, Española, Jemez Springs and Pecos. The Santa Fe National Forest covers about 1.6 million acres in north-central New Mexico. It’s one of five national forests in the state.

Dad to stand trial in infant’s death ALBUQUERQUE — A trial has been set for an Albuquerque man accused of shooting his infant daughter in the head after claiming his daughter’s mother had been seeing another man. Christopher Rains is scheduled to face trial beginning May 20 in Albuquerque District Court. Police say Rains, who was 22 years old at the time, pointed a pistol at the 9-month-old baby’s head and pulled the trigger following an argument with then 18-year-old Ashley Trujillo in 2009. Authorities say Rains then allegedly asked Trujillo whether her seeing another man was worth it.

Family’s death Agency revises chicken proposal reports released ALBUQUERQUE — Environmentalists criticized federal wildlife officials for their plan to revamp proposed protections for a prairie grouse found in several Western states. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced Friday that it will reopen the comment period on the proposal to list the lesser prairie chicken as a threatened species. At issue is a special rule that would take effect if the grouse is listed. It would give landowners in New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma and other states more flexibility by allowing prairie chickens to be killed as part of certain activities. The agency says the rule would foster conservation, but the Center for Biological Diversity says the measure would allow habitat-destroying activities to continue and limit protections for the bird.

ALBUQUERQUE — The New Mexico Office of the Medical Investigator has released autopsy reports for the five family members killed in their rural home outside Albuquerque in January. KOAT-TV reports 2-year-old Angelina Griego was shot once in the back, chest and forehead according to the reports. The report says Griego’s brothers, 5-year-old Jael and 9-year-old Zephaniah, were both shot once in head, while their mother, Sara, was shot twice in the face while she slept. Police say Greg Griego, a spiritual leader known for his work with firefighters, was shot once in the back and chest and twice in his head. His son, Nehemiah Griego, was indicted in February on murder and child abuse charges in the case. The Associated Press

Syrian cancer poisons Middle East

A

mid the carnage in Boston and the celebrations for the new king of the Netherlands, the tragedy in Syria continues to unfold and intensify. No end is in sight. Last week, there were reliable reports that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons against its own people, a “red line” that once crossed, President Barack Obama has said, would bring about a major review, if not change, in U.S. policy Bill Stewart toward Syria and the war. This week, Understanding Secretary of Defense Your World Chuck Hagel said that a review is now underway, with “all options on the table.” The Syrian war is like a major cancer in the Middle East, and as it continues to metastasize, it threatens to destabilize the entire region, including Israel. This is primarily because all the combatants represent different ethnic, religious and national interests. Iran is involved, as is its Lebanese proxy, Hezbollah. The diversity and uncertainty of the rebel opposition is the main reason why the U.S. and Europe have found it so difficult to supply weapons to the opposition. Some of those weapons undoubtedly would fall into the hands of al-Qaida-related groups. But that may be about to change, as indicated by Hagel’s comments this week. The war has been going on since March 2011, when Syrian security forces in Deraa, in southern Syria, opened fire on demonstrators protesting the arrest and torture of teenagers who had painted revolutionary slogans on a school wall. As a result, even more demonstrators took to the streets. The unrest triggered nationwide protests demanding that President Bashar al Assad resign. The government, in turn, sent tanks into the streets of Deraa at the end of March 2011, a disproportionate reaction that triggered even more protests, and the fight was on to bring down the regime that has ruled Syria since 1970. Tens of thousands of people have been killed, and more than 1 million refugees have fled into neighboring Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan. In desperation, some have fled to Iraq. According to the U.N., about 2 million more people have been internally displaced, while about 4 million are now in need of humanitarian aid. In short, Syria is now a major crisis internally and externally. What to do? The Obama administration is in a partic-

If the U.S. were to play a major role in assisting the rebels, what would happen if it all went wrong after the fall of the al Assad regime? ularly delicate position because it is clear that the American public does not want to see an intervention that would mean U.S. troops on the ground. Having ended the war in Iraq and on the way to ending our involvement in Afghanistan, there simply is no appetite for another Middle East misadventure. Moreover, Syria gets in the way of allowing the U.S. to “pivot towards Asia,” one of the president’s prime foreign policy objectives, as Europe fades in military importance and China emerges as the dominant power in a region well on its way to becoming the world’s leading economic conglomerate. Getting involved in Syria in a major way stands in the way of those plans. On the other hand, not getting involved in Syria may send a message to China and others that the USA has lost its appetite for foreign policy leadership. It’s an interesting and fraught dilemma for the president, and no doubt accounts

for his great caution in approaching the Syrian crisis. The British and the French are much more eager to supply the Syrian rebels with lethal arms, and no doubt that effort is underway via Turkey. But a replay of the Libyan scenario, in which the British and the French took the lead militarily, giving rise to the expression “leading from behind,” is unlikely. Even in Libya, the French and the British could not have been successful without substantial behind-the-scenes military and logistical support from the U.S. A Syrian scenario would be much bigger, and the U.S. probably could not lead from behind but only from the front. That almost certainly would mean American casualties, which would be deeply unpopular at home. Turkey might be able to lead, but that possibility is not at all certain. Then Obama has to consider that, if the U.S. were to play a major role in assisting the rebels, what would happen if it all went wrong after the fall of the al Assad regime, a distinct possibility, and the rebel forces were unable to form a government? In effect, the U.S. would now “own” the situation in Syria, and once again, we would be in another Middle East quagmire. Syria may be the historic standard bearer of Arab nationalism, but it has never been an easy place. In the past two years, it has only worsened.

Take time to celebrate city’s tourism

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

ational Tourism Week is celebrated in communities across the country this year from May 4 to 12. For Santa Fe, this week provides the opportunity to reflect on how much tourism means from an economic standpoint. We are thrilled that our diverse community continues to attract travelers seeking authentic experiences. Whether it is art, culture, food or history — Santa Fe is “New Mexico True.” The tourism industry represents more than $620 million in economic output in Santa Fe. It is one of Santa Fe’s largest industries and employers. More than 7,400 Santa Fe jobs depend on tourism. We encourage Santa Feans to attend the Celebrate Santa Fe Tourism Expo at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center on May 9. It will be a terrific way to learn about all that Santa Fe has to offer. The next time a tourist stops you to ask you what they should see and where to eat — give them a great answer, but first thank them for visiting.

water practices in Santa Fe. I have found a serious wasteful practice within the city, and, unfortunately, it’s not just in Santa Fe. In the scores of hotels and rooms in Santa Fe, the shower is the most wasteful. Many of the newer shower systems have one control, and it is basically designed to control the temperature. The volume of flow cannot be adjusted by the user, and in most cases, the flow rate is excessively high. In a city that takes pride in the low water use of its residents, there should be more attention given the use by the general public. When a restaurant patron is aware they will be served a glass of water only if they ask for it, that may help raise their level of consciousness of limited water resources. That outlook may carry over to other activities they are engaged in. Richard Angelos

Specific action As I understand the federal law, anyone can buy guns without a background check from a gun show or the Internet. The guns can include military style assault weapons with 30-shot magazines of cop-killing bullets. The Constitution’s Second Amendment allows this in the context of a well regulated militia. It seems to me that the status is far from well regulated and that a suit could be brought against the federal government on that basis. Very few individuals have the means to mount such a suit, but I believe that Michael Bloomberg, mayor of New York City, has both the means and the motivation. Consider this an open letter to him urging this action. I am donating to Demand Action to help in a small way, and I urge others to join me. I believe now is the time for you, mayor, to take this specific step! Bill Maxon

t his news conference Tuesday, President Barack Obama made a powerful plea for ending the humanitarian and diplomatic disaster created by the continued detention of more than 160 prisoners at Guantánamo Bay, more than 100 of whom are engaged in a hunger strike that necessitated the dispatch of an emergency medical team. The problem is that Obama has contributed to the crisis by acquiescing in congressional obstruction of his promise to close the facility. We hope he is serious when he says he will now “re-engage with Congress that this is not in the best interest of the American people.” “The idea that we would still maintain forever a group of individuals who have not been tried, that is contrary to who we are,” Obama said. “It is contrary to our interests and needs to stop.” The president repeated his familiar observation that the existence of Guantánamo is a “recruitment tool” for extremists. Those are eloquent words, but if they are to be translated into action, Obama will need to alter his own behavior. It has been more than four years since the newly inaugurated president issued an executive order promising “promptly to close detention facilities at Guantánamo.” Yet the prison remains open (though its population has dwindled from a high of nearly 800 inmates in 2005). Of those remaining, about half have been cleared for release but continue to be detained because of congressional opposition to their repatriation to Yemen and other countries whose authorities might not be able to prevent them from engaging in terrorism. Congress also has used its authority to prevent Obama from transferring detainees to the U.S. mainland, a factor in the decision to try Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and other alleged 9/11 conspirators before a military commission rather than in civilian courts. But Congress isn’t entirely to blame. The Supreme Court, which in 2008 ruled that detainees at Guantánamo had a constitutional right to challenge their confinement by seeking writs of habeas corpus, stood by while a federal appeals court eviscerated that landmark ruling. For his part, Obama has refused to expend political capital on closing Guantánamo. Rather than veto the defense authorization bills that have limited his ability to transfer inmates, he has signed them while raising questions about whether they intruded on his constitutional authority. Before Obama’s news conference, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., had urged the administration to renew its efforts to transfer from Guantánamo the 86 inmates cleared for release three years ago by an interagency task force. Obama should do so, ideally with congressional cooperation but unilaterally if necessary. Guantánamo is a stain on this nation’s reputation, not because of where it is located but because the men held captive there are languishing in a legal limbo that would be just as hopeless if they were transplanted to American soil. Notwithstanding Obama’s comments about the un-American nature of indefinite detention, more than 40 inmates are being held without the prospect of even a military trial. As he “re-engages” with Congress, Obama should also reconsider his own decision to deny those detainees their day in court.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: May 4, 1913: News of the Morley-Nusbaum expedition to Cozumel Island, off Yucatan, is awaited by Mrs. Sylvanus G. Morley, wife of the Harvard archaeologist who has returned to her residence here, opposite the Scottish Rite Cathedral. Reports concerning the inhabitants of Cozumel Island indicate the hostile Indians are not on the island but are now on the east coast of Yucatan and go to the island for their religious “services.” Messrs. Morley and Nusbaum are expected to arrive in New York tomorrow, but it is possible they have been delayed for several days or even weeks. May 4, 1988: Santa Fe school board member Michael Gross said Monday that he will ask the board to reconsider its decision not to dispense contraceptives at school-based health clinics scheduled to open this fall. Gross said he originally thought the success of the proposed clinics did not depend on the availability of birth control. However, after gauging the success of an Española clinic that dispenses contraceptives, Gross said he is convinced the Santa Fe clinics will not be effective without including a program of birth control. “We’re talking about life-threatening illnesses like AIDS along with unwanted pregnancies,” Gross said of his proposal. “It’s controversial now, but in a year or so it will be well accepted.”

FOR THE BIRDS

Birds can suffer in drought, too By Anne Schmauss

For The New Mexican

O

ften, when I pass a dried-up creek or wash, I wonder where birds are getting the water that they so desperately need every day. The drought is predicted to go on for a while, with many experts talking about a more permanent climate shift. Santa Fe-area writer William deBuys wrote the 2011 book A Great Aridness about climate change and the American Southwest. It’s a must-read for anyone interested in the subject. I worry about how people will survive long term, how farmers will make it, how wild animals and livestock will get by and how the birds will find enough water and food. It can all feel a little overwhelming sometimes. In researching this column, I was not surprised to find that water for drinking is vital for birds’ survival. In fact, a bird must daily replenish body water lost to respiration, evaporation and defecation. What I hadn’t thought about much was the effect a drought has on insect populations and how important insects are to a bird’s survival. Less water means fewer insects. Fewer insects mean less food for many birds that depend on bugs as a steady food source. Insects need water to breed, so they don’t breed as much under drought conditions. Less water also means fewer grasses, flowers, berries and other vegetation that birds eat. During nesting season, which is right now, birds should be able to count on an overabundant supply of insects to feed their young. When food for nestlings is scarce, birds have fewer offspring.

The problem is overwhelming and seems almost impossible for one person to impact. We can, of course, lobby for environmentally sustainable ways of producing energy in hopes of reversing humancaused climate change. If enough of us focus on this issue, we can make a difference. In a personal way, we can help the birds in our own backyards. Carrol Henderson, the director of the Department of Natural Resources in Minnesota, told me that if you add a birdbath to your backyard, you can double the variety of birds that you attract — and if you make that water move, you can double it again. So, with that in mind, I’m a big believer in having multiple birdbaths. Whether you use a simple plastic dish or two on the ground, or an expensive granite birdbath, your birds won’t care. Just make sure that the water is shallow — no more than 2 inches deep — and that the bath is easy for birds to enter. Sometimes a rock in the middle of the bath becomes a favorite bird perching area. You can add an electric or solar bubbler to your bath to lure more birds. The sight and sound of moving water is a real bird magnet. Just think what happens when sprinklers come on — birds come out of nowhere to enjoy the bath and the drink and the bugs that the water draws. Anne Schmauss is the co-owner of Wild Birds Unlimited in Santa Fe, and she loves to hear your bird stories. She and her sisters wrote For the Birds: A Month by Month Guide to Attracting Birds to Your Backyard.

Sheen supports sons’ removal from ex-’s care

PepsiCo cuts ties with Lil Wayne over crude lyrics

LOS ANGELES — Charlie Sheen supports a decision by child protective services to remove his twin sons from the custody of his ex-wife and have them live temporarily with another of his exes, actress Denise Richards, his spokesman said Friday. Larry Solters wrote in a statement that Sheen will participate in court proceedings related to ex-wife Brooke Mueller’s custody of their 4-year-old sons. Mueller and Sheen were married in 2008 and divorced in 2011. “He knows Max and Bob are safe and in a stable, loving environment with Denise and the boys’ sisters,” Solters wrote. “Charlie will fully cooperate and fully participate in all proceedings.” Celebrity website RadarOnline.com reported Friday that the twins were removed from Mueller’s custody by the Department of Children and Family Services. Mueller has struggled with addiction for years, but it remains unclear what prompted officials to remove her sons from her care. Sheen and Richards have two daughters from their marriage, which ended in 2006.

NEW YORK — PepsiCo is bowing to public pressure for the second time in a week and cutting ties to Lil Wayne over the rapper’s crude reference to civil rights martyr Emmett Till in a song. Lil Wayne had a deal to promote the company’s Mountain Dew soda. PepsiCo also pulled an online ad for the neon-colored soda that was criticized for portraying racial stereotypes and making light of violence toward women. That ad was developed by rapper Tyler, the Creator.

Van Slyke gets back up to bat

Tim Host talked about beating Santa Fe Preparatory on the track Friday afternoon. That’s big talk for a track and field program that didn’t exist last spring. Host, the head coach at Academy for Technology and the Classics, isn’t afraid to think big, and neither are his athletes. A group of 54 runners and

throwers dot a roster, most of whom were at the District 4AA Championships at Santa Fe High, where none existed a season ago, as no coach was hired to take over the program. “I know our principal, Mrs. [Susan] Lumley, told us, ‘I know it’s a shame this year that we don’t have a track coach,’ ” said Lucy Hutchison, a senior sprinter. “ ‘But I swear to you I will get one for you next year,’ and she did.” Enter Host, who also heads country and the athletic department at ATC. He has a championship pedigree, having guided Navajo Pine’s boys and girls cross country programs to state titles. While he didn’t harbor any illusions to the task

handed to him at ATC, he never let that get in the way of the competitive fire he wants to instill in his program. “The hope is to beat Prep [Friday], there’s no doubt about that,” Host said. “We’re not in this to finish second. Nobody I ever coach is going to be in it to finish second. They are the Goliath, no doubt about it.” The district’s Goliaths walked away with the boys and girls championships, but ATC left the track with a runner-up trophy on the girls side after scoring 103 points to Prep’s 184.

PREP TENNIS DISTRICT 2AAAA TOURNAMENT

M

otivation can be found in strange places. In Scott Van Slyke’s case, it was born in rejection. Behold the power of having others turn their backs. Lucky for Van Slyke, the son of former major league All-Star outfielder Andy Van Slyke, he’s got his second chance with the same club that essentially gave up on him. Typically a starting outfielder for the Albuquerque Isotopes, he is playing with a sense of tunnel-visioned focus not present in his game this time last year. He’s 20 pounds lighter, having committed himself to a more disciplined diet and offseason conditioning program. The loss of Will Webber weight has made him faster and Commentary more confident. None of it would have been possible had he not gone through the proverbial ringer after last season when he was dropped from the parent Los Angeles Dodgers’ 40-man roster and then fell unclaimed through waivers. “That sends a clear message to the player when every team out there decides to take a pass when your name pops up on the [waiver] wire,” said Lorenzo Bundy, Isotopes manager. “You can take it one of two ways. Obviously Scotty used it in a productive way. A way to make himself better.” Van Slyke re-upped with the Dodgers in December, albeit for a much cheaper pay rate. Players on the MLB 40-man are paid a prorated salary based on the major league minimum and can be promoted to the big leagues at any time. Players not on the 40-man can hit .350 and drive in 100 runs but they’ll remain in the minors until their contracts are purchased by the parent team and their names are added to the coveted big league roster. Van Slyke earned his spot with the Dodgers by batting .348 with DoubleA Chattanooga in 2011, then hitting .327 with 18 home runs and 67 runs batted in his Triple-A debut with the Isotopes last season. He got his first taste of the big leagues on May 9 of last year, rapping an RBI single in his first at bat. After that, though, it was a healthy dose of humble pie. He hit only .167 in 27 games in Los Angeles. Bundy said it’s one thing to ride the yo-yo back and forth from the majors to the minors, but another thing altogether when a player is dropped from the 40-man roster. “You can look at it as though they might not want you, or you don’t fit into their plans,” he said. “Scotty, he got focus when he was dropped. He dedicated himself to getting back up there. He’s still the same person, but he’s not the same player.” All Van Slyke has done is add serious pop to the middle of the Isotopes’ lineup. Through the first month of the season he is among the top four in six major categories. He’s first in home runs (eight), slugging (.747) and total bases (.74, second in batting average (.404), third in on-base percentage (.479) and fourth in RBI (26). It’s reason enough, Bundy said, for fans to stick in Van Slyke’s corner. “I’ve seen it before,” he said. “Players can come back better when they find motivation. Good for us Scotty found his.”

t

here was no thunderous applause, no roar from a crowd of thousands from the grandstand. There was only clapping from a sparse audience. For the competitors, it didn’t matter because Friday morning signaled the beginning of the District 2AAAA boys and girls tennis tournaments at the Capital High School courts. By late afternoon, two team tickets had been

punched for the 2013 state tennis tournament, while many individual singles and doubles spots will be determined Saturday morning. The Española Valley Lady Sundevils and Los Alamos Hilltoppers were victorious in their team semifinals matches, guaranteeing both at worst a No. 2 finish in the district and the right to one final match on Albuquerque’s Jerry Kline tennis courts next week. Española defeated the Santa Fe High girls 5-1 to clinch the Lady Sundevils’ first appearance in the Class AAAA state tournament in program history. The feat looked as if it would remain elusive, though, when Santa Fe High’s No. 1 singles player Greta Miller easily defeated Sophie Valenzuela 6-1, 6-0 to give the Demonettes an early one-point advantage.

The momentum quickly shifted as Española had consecutive wins from the Nos. 2, 5 and 6 spots to capture a 3-1 advantage. Junior Arielle Martinez jumped off the court in jubilation when she clinched the fifth and final team point for the Lady Sundevils after a two-hour victory in the No. 3 match against Sangye Phuntsog. “It feels amazing,” Martinez said. “It feels really great to be a part of it. All of my teammates are amazing, so hopefully we’ll do OK [at state].” Martinez took the first set in a tiebreaker, 7-6 (4), but lost traction when Phuntsog won 6-4 in the second. “After I lost the second set my teammates came

BOSTON — Carmelo Anthony scored 21 points, and New York held on after blowing most of a 26-point lead to beat the Celtics Knicks 88 88-80 in Game 6 on Friday night and Celtics 80 advance in the postseason for the first time since 2000. Forward Iman Shumpert scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half, when the Celtics cut a 75-49 deficit to four points. But Anthony made a jumper to give New York an 81-75 lead and then sank a 3-pointer, then J.R. Smith converted a three-point play to restore the double-digit lead the Knicks had nursed most of the game. Forward Jeff Green scored 21 points for the Celtics, who were hoping to

become the first NBA team to advance in the playoffs after losing the first three games. The Knicks had not won a playoff series since Patrick Ewing and Latrell Sprewell (and current backup center Marcus Camby) helped them reach the 2000 Eastern Conference finals. They will open the second round Sunday at home against Indiana. Paul Pierce scored 14 points on 4-for18 shooting, making one of nine 3-point attempts. Forward Kevin Garnett had 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Celtics, who now face another offseason of talk whether to break up the aging core that won the franchise’s record 17th NBA

Napravnik aims to be first female Derby winner The Associated Press

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Rosie Napravnik isn’t worried about history. She is, however, working on her chemistry — with a horse named Mylute in the Kentucky Derby. Two years after achieving the best finish by a female jockey in the Derby, she will try to become the first woman to win it. Napravnik’s pursuit of the milestone comes a year after she became the first female rider to win the Kentucky Oaks, the second-biggest race on Churchill Downs’ marquee weekend. Mylute is a 15-1 shot to win the Derby on Saturday, but his last win came in December with Napravnik aboard. That performance offered a

glimpse into her ability to get the most out of a horse, something she has shown in being the leading rider at four tracks. Napravnik is confident Mylute will give her a strong ride Rosie “Mylute will defiNapravnik nitely come from off the pace because that’s his style,” Napravnik said. “That’s not a bad style to have when the race is a mile and a quarter. It’s very long, so if you can have a horse that can stay relaxed in the first part, that’s definitely to your advantage.” For her part, Napravnik has been more relaxed preparing for her second Derby appearance. That hasn’t

been easy considering the barrage of questions about her attempt to do what six women, including herself, have failed to do in 138 previous Derbys. Napravnik is well aware of the tectonic impact her victory could have. But, for now, the 25-year-old rider is simply embracing the attention her presence has brought to the sport. Having gone through the Derby experience in 2011 while guiding Pants On Fire to a ninth-place finish, Napravnik feels more like a veteran the second time around. “It’s nice to have the experience of when I was here two years ago,” she said. “It’s a little less overwhelming and I know what to expect. I’ve been able to handle it better. “A lot has happened in my career

since I was here two years ago. I think I’ve been more recognized, it’s very flattering and everybody has been very positive. Winning the Kentucky Oaks last year was probably the greatest moment of my career.” Which might change after Saturday’s mount at the Derby. “We’re lucky to have her,” said trainer Tom Amoss said. “It may be a bit surprising that she was available for the Kentucky Derby with what I thought about her being very much in demand. But their loss is our gain.” Napravnik is all smiles when it comes to Mylute. She’s been pleased with his runs and is ready for Saturday. “He feels great, he’s acting great and I’m very confident heading into the Derby,” she said. “Hopefully, we can make history.”

Okposo’s goal helps Islanders even series with Pittsburgh The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Kyle Okposo’s first career playoff goal with 7 minutes, 37 seconds remaining Islanders 4 lifted New York to a Penguins 3 4-3 victory over the Penguins on Friday night, evening their playoffs series at one game each. Matt Moulson, Colin McDonald and Matt Martin also scored for the Islanders, who spoiled Sidney Crosby’s comeback from a broken jaw by rallying from an early twogoal deficit. Crosby scored twice in the

game’s first eight minutes as the Penguins raced to a quick 3-1 lead. But they couldn’t hold it as the Islanders bounced back from a lifeless performance in Game 1. Evgeni Nabokov overcame a sluggish start to stop 30 shots as the Islanders won their first playoff game in more than six years. Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury made 38 saves for Pittsburgh, which allowed the speedy Islanders to effectively counterpunch all night. Game 3 is Sunday in New York.

CANADIENS 3, SENATORS 1 In Montreal, Ryan White started a three-goal second period and goalie Carey Price was back in top form with 29 saves as the Canadiens evened their playoff series. The best-of-seven Eastern Conference quarterfinal is tied 1-1 heading into Game 3 on Sunday in Ottawa. Brendan Gallagher and Michael Ryder also scored for Montreal. Milan Michalek scored for Ottawa, which was let down by a power play that went 0-for-4. There was anticipation of rough play after Eric Gryba’s hit

that saw Montreal’s Lars Eller carried off the Bell Centre ice on a stretcher with a concussion and some missing teeth in Ottawa’s 4-2 win in the series opener on Thursday night. Eller spent the night in hospital and was released Friday morning. Gryba drew a two-game suspension from the NHL and sat out Game 2.

a strong start and impressive finish to open a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. Bryan Bickell added an empty-net score for Chicago. Game 3 is Sunday in Minnesota. Devin Setoguchi and Marco Scandella scored for the Wild, who are making their first postseason appearance in five years.

BLACkhAwkS 5, wILD 2 In Chicago, Patrick Sharp and Michael Frolik had two goals apiece, and the Blackhawks beat Minnesota in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series. Patrick Kane added two assists as Chicago put together

ShARkS 3, CANuCkS 2 (OT) In Vancouver, British Columbia, Raffi Torres scored at 5:31 of overtime to give San Jose the victory over the Canucks in Game 2 of their playoff series. The Sharks took a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series, which

shifts to San Jose for games Sunday and Tuesday. San Jose was 17-2-5 at home this season. Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau, whose goal in the final minute of the third period forced overtime, also scored for San Jose. The Canucks took their sixth consecutive loss in a home playoff game. Now, they might not get another one after winning their fifth consecutive Northwest Division title. Ryan Kesler scored two thirdperiod goals for Vancouver, helping the Canucks overcome a 1-0 deficit that stood since the first period.

Demonettes sweep Lady Jaguars SCOREBOARD The New Mexican

Here we go again. Santa Fe High’s softball team survived its life on the playoff bubble last season by landing a No. 15 seed in the Class AAAA State Tournament. This year, same thing. Maybe. The Demonettes wrapped up their regular season with a doubleheader sweep at Capital on Friday, winning by scores of 16-0 and 20-0 in five innings. They are 14-12 overall and 6-6 — good for third place — in District 2AAAA. “It’s a lot like last year,” said Sig Rivera, Santa Fe High head coach. “What hurts us now is our strength of schedule. I think we have enough to get in, but I don’t know.” The Demonettes are ranked 17th in the latest AAAA power poll. Only 16 teams go to state. Alex Russell did her part. The freshman pitched two complete games, shutting down the Lady Jaguars on three hits and four strikeouts in the opener and two hits with another four Ks in the nightcap. She also went 3-for-5 with a pair of RBIs in the second game. Jackie Martinez was 8-for-8 on the day

with two home runs and three RBI in the opener and two doubles and a grand slam with seven RBI in Game 2. Xeala Porras was 4-for-4 in Game 1. She had two home runs and four RBIs. her sister, K.K., was 2-for-5 with a home run and double in Game 2.

St. Michael’s finished the regular season 16-10 overall and 5-4 in the district, second only to Albuquerque Hope Christian. “I would be quite surprised if we don’t get a top-eight seed,” said Rosanne Noedel, Lady Horsemen head coach. Allie Berhost was 2-for-2 with a home run, double and four runs scored in the opener, then was the winning pitcher in Game 2 after striking out eight in seven complete innings. The Lady Horsemen had a big day from Erin Torrez. She was a combined 6-for-7 with a home run, double, eight runs scored and four RBIs in the doubleheader.

Briona Vigil had five hits in the two games, including a home run and five RBIs in Game 1.

Sandia PreParatory 3 In Albuquerque, Marc Brandt and Marcus Sandoval picked up wins on the mound as the visiting Horsemen won both games by identical scores. In truth, Game 2 saw them build a 13-3 lead in the seventh inning but it was halted due to darkness. By rule, the score reverts to the most recently completed full inning. St. Michael’s (19-7, 5-4) finishes third in 5AAA behind Hope Christian and Sandia Prep. Brandt pitched into the seventh inning in Game 1, allowing two earned runs and striking out six. He also had a home run and finished 3-for-5. Zach Bobchak was 2-for-4 with an RBI. A six-run second inning erased an early 2-1 Prep lead. The Horsemen never trailed in the nightcap.

Knowing the difference between playing another match and resting until the fall energized Martinez to a 6-0 victory in the decisive third set. Across the court from where Martinez was celebrating, Forrest White nonchalantly walked off the court, having no clue that he had just sealed yet another appearance for the Los Alamos boys in the state tournament. “It feels good you know, I’m just glad I could help out the team,” White said, who knocked off Española’s Jeremiah Maestas 6-2, 6-1 from the No. 6 singles position. The Hilltoppers swept the Española boys 5-0, but it wasn’t quick, nor easy. Los Alamos’ Nikita Belooussov and Dalton Smith were locked in a battle with Adrian Martinez and Josh Martinez, not related, at the No. 1 doubles spot. Nearly two hours and 15 minutes later, the Hilltoppers duo was victorious 5-7, 6-4, 6-1. “It’s a mental game more than anything else, once you understand that you can take the reigns and propel yourself forward,” Smith said. “We’re relieved for sure.” There were a few other surprises in Day 1 of the 2AAAA individual tournament played in the morning. Most of the the top four seeds in the singles and doubles draws for boys and girls advanced to the semifinals, including in the girls doubles where the top-seeded tandem of Gillian Hsieh-Ratliff and Made-

The district meet netted ATC a few qualifiers for next week’s Class AA State Championships in Albuquerque. Hutchison finished second in the 100 meters, giving her a spot in that event since the top two individual finishers and the winning relay teams at districts advance to state. Joining her will be eighth-grader Fiona Lamb in the 3,200 (second) and freshman Maya Griswold in the 100 hurdles (second). Junior Jordan Grow is the lone boys representative, but he will throw in three events — the javelin, discus and shot put. Grow is among the group that competed in track as an underclassman when Steve Rogers guided the program. The year off was disappointing, but Grow rebounded quickly and in his first meet of the season, setting school records in a couple of events. The opportunity to compete for ATC again — and at state — is not lost on Grow. “In one year, we’ve had I think over

Reds get boost in tandem The Associated Press

CHICAGO — Jay Bruce had two RBIs and scored a run, Shin-Soo Choo drove in a run and scored Reds 6 twice, and Cincinnati Cubs 5 held off the Cubs 6-5 on Friday. The Cubs scored three runs in the ninth against Reds closer Aroldis Chapman before reliever J.J. Hoover came on and struck out Darwin Barney with the bases loaded to pick up his first save. Nate Schierholtz drew a twoout bases-loaded walk and Welington Castillo followed with a two-run single to pull the Cubs within one. After pinch-hitter Cody Ransom drew a walk to load the bases again, Hoover replaced Chapman. PHILLIES 4, MARLINS 1 In Philadelphia, Jonathan Pettibone pitched neatly into the seventh, Ryan Howard, Chase Utley and Domonic Brown hit solo homers, and the Phillies beat Miami. Pettibone (2-0) allowed one run and five hits in 6⅓ innings in his third start filling in for injured lefty John Lannan. Donovan Solano hit a solo homer for the Marlins, who’ve lost three in a row after winning three straight. Ricky Nolasco (2-3) gave up four runs and eight hits in six innings. PIRATES 3, NATIONALS 1 In Pittsburgh, A.J. Burnett allowed one run and struck out nine in seven shutout innings, and call-up Jordy Mercer hit a tiebreaker home run to lead the Pirates past Washington. Burnett (3-2) gave up five hits and one walk in winning his third straight after going 0-2 in his first three starts. He also raised his NL-leading strikeout total to 57. Mercer’s two-run home run off Ross Detwiler (1-3) in the fifth inning put the Pirates ahead for good 3-1. METS 7, BRAVES 5 (10 INNINGS) In Atlanta, David Wright hit the tying home run in the ninth inning off closer Craig Kimbrel, and New York scored twice in the 10th to rally for the win. The Mets, who have won two in a row after dropping six straight, scored four of their first five runs on homers before taking a two-run lead off Jordan Walden (1-1) in the 10th. Pinch-hitter Jordany Valdespin drew a two-out walk from Walden and stole second base when closer Bobby Parnell (2-0) squared around to bunt while taking a strike on the first pitch he saw. New York manager Terry Collins brought in pinch-hitter Mike Baxter, whom Walden hit with a pitch, and Tejada followed with an RBI single that scored Valdespin from second. CARDINALS 6, BREWERS 1 In Milwaukee, Matt Holliday and Carlos Beltran homered and Shelby Miller pitched six strong innings to help St. Louis beat the Brewers. Miller (4-2) gave up seven hits and a walk in six innings while striking out five. He was scoreless through the first five innings before allowing a sacrifice fly by Jonathan Lucroy. Carlos Martinez, Seth Maness and Fernando Salas held the Brewers without a run over the final three innings. Martinez and Maness made their MLB debuts. INTERLEAGUE RAYS 7, ROCKIES 4 (10 INNINGS) In Denver, Evan Longoria hit a tiebreaking single in the 10th inning and Kelly Johnson later added a two-run homer, helping Tampa Bay win. Desmond Jennings also had a two-run homer for the Rays, who improved to 3-4 on their road trip after having a game in Kansas City snowed out. Ben Zobrist led off the 10th with a double to left off reliever Matt Belisle (1-2), setting the stage for Longoria. Johnson provided some insurance by lining his fourth homer of the season just over the wall in right-center. Kyle Farnsworth (1-0) earned the win by pitching a perfect ninth and Fernando Rodney picked up his fourth save in five chances, striking out Eric Young Jr. with two on to end the game.

AMERICAN LEAGUE

Hernandez stifles Blue Jays; homers lift Seattle The Associated Press

TORONTO — Felix Hernandez pitched eight shutout innings to win his third straight start, Kyle Seager and Jason Bay homered, Mariners 4 and Seattle blanked the Blue Jays 4-0 on Blue Jays 0 Friday night. Seager had three hits as the Mariners won for the sixth time in eight games. Hernandez (4-2) allowed five hits, walked none and struck out seven, improving to 3-0 with a 0.60 ERA in his past four starts. He’s 95-24 in his career when he receives two or more runs of support. Tom Wilhelmsen pitched the ninth for the Mariners, who had lost seven of their previous eight road games. The struggling Blue Jays lost for the seventh time in eight games. ATHLETICS 2, YANKEES 0 In New York, A.J. Griffin pitched sixhit ball into the eighth inning and Adam Rosales homered on CC Sabathia’s first pitch, leading Oakland to the win. Derek Norris hit an RBI single in the sixth inning to help Oakland open its 10-game road trip with its fourth win in five games.

PCL: Isotopes open series with big victory Three runs in the seventh inning and six more in the eighth helped Albuquerque open a four-game series against New Orleans with an 11-8 win on Friday at Isotopes Park. Tony Gwynn Jr. paced Albuquerque’s 13-hit night by going 3-for-5 with a pair of RBIs. Trailing 4-2 entering the bottom of the seventh, the Isotopes tied the game on consecutive wild pitches by Zephyrs

Griffin (3-2), coming off two losses in which he allowed 11 earned runs and 13 hits in 11 innings, was smooth on the mound, too. He struck out four, walked one and was removed for Sean Doolittle after Gardner’s bunt single to start the eighth. INDIANS 7, TWINS 6 (10 INNINGS) In Cleveland, Drew Stubbs’ RBI double with one out in the 10th inning lifted the Indians to their fifth straight victory. Stubbs, who had four hits, drove a

reliever Dan Jennings, then plated the go-ahead run moments later when Tim Federowicz came home on an infield error. Albuquerque (16-12) opened an 11-4 lead in the eighth, then held on to beat New Orleans (12-14). The teams meet again at 7:05 p.m. Saturday. The New Mexican

1-0 pitch from Casey Fien off the wall in left-center to give Cleveland its first five-game winning streak since winning seven in a row from April 26-May 3, 2011. Mike Aviles started the rally with a leadoff single off Fien (1-2). Chris Perez (1-0) pitched a scoreless 10th for Cleveland. TIGERS 4, ASTROS 3 In Houston, Alex Avila hit a two-run home run in the ninth inning, lifting Detroit over the Astros.

After Houston closer Jose Veras (0-2) walked Don Kelly to open the inning, Avila hit a 3-1 pitch to deep center field and help the Tigers get their second straight win. Jose Altuve’s RBI single in the seventh inning capped a three-run rally and gave the Astros a 3-2 lead. Houston, which has the worst record in the American League, lost its fourth in a row and eighth in the last nine. Tigers left-hander Drew Smyly (2-0) pitched two scoreless innings for the win, and Jose Valverde finished the ninth against his former team for his third save in three chances. RANGERS 7, RED SOX 0 In Arlington, Texas, Adrian Beltre had a three-run double among his four hits, Derek Holland pitched eight scoreless innings for his fifth consecutive victory over Boston. While Holland (2-2) had a seasonhigh nine strikeouts and held Boston to six singles, the Rangers had a seasonhigh 18 hits. Starter Felix Doubront (3-1) allowed a career-worst 12 hits in 3⅔ innings. Holland is 5-1 with a 2.41 ERA in his six career starts against the Red Sox. The lone loss came as a rookie at Fenway in June 2009, his third career start.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH Understand that if you really want to let go and enjoy the moment, you might to run an errand or two. Tonight: Let your inner child emerge.

‘Needy’ father puts a strain on his son Dear Annie: I am a 57-year-old man with no siblings, and my mother is deceased. My 82-year-old father is physically healthy, but he’s in the early stages of dementia. He has a few hobbies to keep him busy, but for some reason, he has become obsessed with me. Dad has become rather “needy.” Sometimes he calls me three or four times a day, even when I am at work. He insists that I go to his house every day, even if there is no particular reason. I know Dad is probably lonely, but still. He doesn’t have a lot of friends due to his attitude and sharp tongue. He has become demanding, insisting I do things immediately rather than when I have time. He also has grown very mean-mouthed and pouts if he doesn’t get his way. This is getting to me and putting a strain on my family. What do you suggest? — Crazy in Kansas Dear Kansas: We think Dad is frightened. He knows he is slipping and finds reassurance in your constant presence. Dementia also can affect his personality. Call and visit him when you can. When you don’t have time to run errands, calmly and repeatedly say that you will get to them on the weekend (or whenever), and follow through. Ignore the rants. We also suggest you go with him to his next doctor’s appointment and discuss your concerns. And please contact the Alzheimer’s Association (alz.org) for information on resources and assistance, because this is likely to get more difficult for you over the next several years. Dear Annie: I am married to a wonderful woman who is generous and helpful. We are both retired, in good health and live comfortably. We are currently babysitting two of our grandchildren five days a week, nine months out of the year. We love our

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Your creativity comes forward, and it allows you to add some fun to your plans. A child or loved one delights in your company. Tonight: The fun continues. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH You typically are very adventuresome, which is why others might be making remarks about your contentment to be home right now. Tonight: You do not need to go far. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHHH You instinctively know that it is time to catch up on others’ news, as well as any past emails, calls and projects. Do not make this a big deal. Tonight: Hang out with friends. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Holding back might be nearly impossible. Whichever indulgence you choose to get into will help you release some pressure. Tonight: Meet an older relative for dinner. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Honor what is happening within a group of friends. Together you could go off and come up with a fun idea involving a gettogether. Tonight: Whatever knocks your socks off. Jacqueline Bigar

Today in history Today is Saturday, May 4, the 124th day of 2013. There are 241 days left in the year. Today’s highlight in history: On May 4, 1776, Rhode Island declared its freedom from England, two months before the Declaration of Independence was adopted.

Hocus Focus

grandchildren, but I feel this is too much. The problem is, when I talk to my wife about doing less so we could take the winter off and spend it in a warmer climate, she refuses. I want to enjoy my retirement. Winters here are depressing and limit our physical activities. I don’t feel it would be right for me to travel by myself or spend time in a warmer and more enjoyable place while she stays home and babysits. How can I get her to realize that the years slip by, and that if we don’t enjoy ourselves now, it may be too late when the grandkids no longer need us to babysit? — Richard in New England Dear Richard: It’s possible your idea of a wonderful retirement is not the same as your wife’s. She may enjoy being around her grandchildren and want to be close to them (and of assistance to your children) as long as she is capable of doing so. Since you have three months “off,” begin by planning some special trips during that time. When winter comes, use your weekends or school vacations to get away. You might even take the grandchildren on longer trips if they are old enough and you can afford it. If you approach this in the spirit of compromise, perhaps your wife will listen and even offer some suggestions of her own. Dear Annie: This is in reply to the widow in Florida who complained that she is unable to make new friends. I suggest she find a local animal shelter where she can volunteer her time. Most shelters welcome volunteers, especially during the week. Whether or not she makes new human friends, the animals she works with will appreciate the time she spends with them and will display a love and loyalty she will treasure forever. — Steve
