ozobra’s fiery demise last year seemingly caused more woes than it burned away. Tickets cost an unprecedented $20 at the door. Security guards barred families with baby strollers from entering the park. And attendance was about half of what it was 15 years ago. But the Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe, the host of arguably the city’s most beloved event, hopes to incinerate the gloom of the past year with a slew of changes. “Zozobra for many is the last Santa Fe event for locals,” said Ray Sandoval, who’s in his first year as the producer of the spectacle. “We have tried to bring it back to the community.” Perhaps the biggest change is that ticket prices this year are just $10 — both in advance and at the entrance. Children under 10 get in free. Proceeds from the burning go to charity and Kiwanis’ costs. In January, Sandoval decided to give up his fight to move Zozobra to Friday night, hoping to build the crowds. The Zozobra producer previ-

Nyad’s swim a sign that fitness is on the rise among older Americans By Tara Bahrampour and Carol Morello

U.S. endurance swimmer Diana Nyad, right, and shark diver Niko Gazzace celebrate her record-setting swim from Cuba to Florida in Key West, Fla., on Tuesday.

The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — To 63-yearold Greg Cooke, seeing Diana Nyad become the first person to complete a 110-mile swim from Cuba to Florida on Monday was nothing short of awesome. Nyad is, after all, just a year older than Cooke, and she reminded him of what is possible. “I saw that, and I thought, ‘Man, this is a total inspiration,’ ” he said. “It made me feel like I need to get up and get out there and do stuff.” Unlike Nyad, Cooke, a government attorney who lives in Garrett Park, Md., was not much of an athlete for most of his adult life. But when he was 48, he changed his ways. “I had little kids and I was fat,” he said. “I had a 6-yearold and I didn’t want to be an old slug dad who couldn’t keep up with the kids.” Cooke began running, and now completes marathons with finish times in the three-and-a-half-hour range.

As recently as 1998, only 6 percent of Americans over 65 routinely exercised up to federal levels, according to the CDC. Over the next decade, it doubled.

WASHINGTON — Key lawmakers from both parties endorsed President Barack Obama’s call for a punitive strike on Syria, giving momentum to his drive to win authorization from Congress as it began the most momentous debate on the use of military force since the 2002 run-up to the war in Iraq. Although members of Congress remain deeply split and polls indicate the majority of Americans oppose military action, Obama on Tuesday won the backing of the two top House Republicans, Speaker John A. Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor. He also picked up the support of the No. 2 House Democrat, Steny Hoyer. Late Tuesday, the top Democrat and Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee agreed on language authorizing U.S. military action against Syria for allegedly using chemical weapons in the Damascus suburbs, while rul-

Texas Guard nixes same-sex benefits AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas National Guard refused to process requests from same-sex couples for benefits on Tuesday despite a Pentagon directive to do so, while Mississippi won’t issue applications from state-owned offices. Both states cited their respective bans on gay marriage. Tuesday was the first working day that gays in the military could apply for benefits after the Pentagon announced it would recognize samesex marriages. Texas and Mississippi appeared to be the only two states limiting how and where same-sex spouses of National Guard members could register for identification cards and benefits, according to an Associated Press tally.

Car bomb blasts kill 67 in Baghdad BAGHDAD — A series of coordinated evening blasts in Baghdad and other violence killed at least 67 people in Iraq on Tuesday, officials said, the latest in a months-long surge of bloodshed that Iraqi security forces are struggling to contain. Many of those killed were caught up in a string of car bombings that tore through the Iraqi capital early in the evening as residents were out shopping or heading to dinner. Those blasts struck 11 different neighborhoods and claimed more than 50 lives in a span of less than two hours. The evening’s deadliest attack happened when two car bombs exploded in Baghdad’s northeastern suburb, a Shiite area, killing nine people and wounding 32. A row of restaurants was also hit in the largely Shiite eastern neighborhood of Talibiyah, killing seven and wounding 28. Another car bomb hit the nearby Shiite neighborhood of Sadr City, killing three and wounding eight, according to police. The Associated Press

Astrobiologist Paul Davies of Arizona State University, Tempe, agrees that Benner’s argument “greatly strengthens the case” for Mars as the first home of terrestrial life. But, he adds, “It comes down to probabilities. The case is suggestive but not overwhelming.” Even if early life existed on Mars, he says, it would be hard to prove that those life forms planted the seeds of our own existence. “In fact, because the traffic of [meteoritic] material between Earth and Mars is so prolific, once life gets going on one it will be transferred to the other very quickly, making the place of origin almost impossible to discern.” Astrochemist Pascale Ehrenfreund of George Washington University in Washington, is a bit more optimistic about resolving the issue. Laboratory experiments under conditions that resemble early Mars might lead to realistic answers, she says. But she doesn’t find Benner’s “interesting idea” convincing. Benner himself concedes that scientists may never know how and where life emerged. “We will likely need to be satisfied with answers to a more indirect question: How might life have emerged?” Finding martian life, either extant or extinct, could help by revealing information about ancient martian biochemistry. “This could lead to an ‘Aha!’ moment that opens new thinking relevant to the historical question.”

LONDON — Researchers who dug up King Richard III’s skeleton say they appear to have discovered another problem the hunchback monarch had during his brief and violent reign: parasitic worms in his guts that grew up to a foot long. In those remains, dug up last year beneath a parking lot in Leicester, the researchers say they discovered numerous roundworm eggs in the soil around his pelvis, where his intestines would have been. In a study published online Wednesday in the journal Lancet, experts say that suggests the eggs near the skeleton’s pelvis were from a genuine infection during the king’s life, though it’s unlikely the worms did him any serious damage. One of the researchers, Piers Mitchell, a professor of biological anthropology at Cambridge University, said it was the first time any English monarch had been shown to have been infected with worms. Richard III died on the battlefield in 1485, the last English king killed during a war, and he has long been one of the country’s most reviled Kings.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio corrections officials say Ariel Castro, who held three women captive in his home for nearly a decade, has committed suicide at a state prison facility. Spokeswoman JoEllen Smith says 53-year-old Castro was found hanging in his cell Tuesday at the Correctional Reception Center in Orient. Prison medical staff performed CPR before Castro was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The three women disappeared separately between 2002 and 2004, when they were 14, 16 and 20 years old. They escaped May 6. Castro was arrested that evening. Castro was sentenced Aug. 1 to life in prison plus 1,000 years on his guilty plea to 937 counts including kidnapping and rape.

Syria shifting troops, arms ahead of strikes

Opposition group claims heavy weapons and soldiers moved to residential areas By Ryan Lucas

The Associated Press


BEIRUT — As the Obama administration tries to prod Congress into backing armed action against Syria, the regime in Damascus is hiding military hardware and shifting troops out of bases into civilian areas. Politically, President Bashar Assad has gone on the offensive, warning in a rare interview with Western media that any military action against Syria could spark a regional war. If the U.S. undertakes missile strikes, Assad’s reaction could have a major effect on the trajectory of Syria’s civil war. Neighboring countries could get dragged into a wider conflict, or it could be back to business as usual for a crisis that has claimed the lives of more than 100,000 people over two and half years. The main Western-backed opposition group says that during the buildup last week to what seemed like an imminent U.S. attack, the army moved troops as well as rocket launchers, artillery and other heavy weapons into residential neighborhoods in cities nationwide. Three Damascus residents, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals, confirmed such movements. One man said two members of the elite Republican Guards broke into an empty house he owns and showed him an official document stating they were authorized to do so because Syria is at war. A woman in another area said soldiers moved into a school next to her house. A U.S. official confirmed there are indications that the Syrian regime is taking steps to move some of its military equipment and bolster protection for defense facilities. The official, who was not authorized to discuss intelligence matters and spoke on condition of anonymity, said that at this point, the U.S. has the information it needs to maintain a good handle on what the regime is doing to prepare. The trend inside Syria is likely to continue in the coming days now that the regime has won a reprieve with President Barack Obama’s decision to seek congressional approval for military action. “The Syrian regime knows there are 30 to 40 potential targets for U.S. airstrikes, and they have had ample time to prepare,” said Hisham Jaber, a retired Lebanese army general and director of the Middle East Center for Studies and Political Research in Beirut. “Half of them, if not more, have been evacuated, moved or camouflaged. This is the natural thing to do.” Obama said last week that he believes the U.S. should strike Syria for what the administration says was a deadly chemical weapons attack by Assad’s forces on rebel-held suburbs of Damascus. The administration has stressed, however, that any operation would be limited and not aimed at tipping the balance of power in Syria’s civil war. In an interview published Monday with the French newspaper Le Figaro, Assad refused to say how Syria would respond to Western strikes, but warned that “the risk of a regional war exists.” The regime has a range of options if the U.S. does bomb. It could retaliate with rockets against U.S. allies in the region. It could unleash allies like Hezbollah against Western targets abroad. Or it could do nothing — and score propaganda points by portraying itself as victim of U.S. aggression.

ing out the commitment of U.S. ground forces and limiting the window for an attack to 90 days. A committee vote could come as early as Wednesday. Earlier, Secretary of State John F. Kerry, along with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff had sought to dispel fears of some committee members that, like in Iraq, the U.S. was at risk of acting on flawed or exaggerated intelligence, or that the U.S. could be drawn more deeply into the Syrian civil war. “This is not the time for armchair isolationism. This is not the time to be spectators to slaughter,” Kerry said. Obama took one of the biggest gambles of his presidency Saturday when he announced he would seek congressional blessing for military action in hopes of bolstering the limited foreign and domestic support for the mission. Substantial risk remains that rank-andfile lawmakers in the House, who sense the hostility of many Americans to more U.S. military action in the Middle East, could buck their leadership. But Boehner urged Republican

JERUSALEM — Israel said Tuesday it carried out a joint missile test launch with the United States in the Mediterranean Sea, raising regional tensions already heightened by the Syria crisis and sending international markets tumbling. “Today, the Israel missile defense organization and the U.S. missile defense agency completed a successful flight test” of the new version of the Sparrow target missile, the Israeli army said in an emailed statement. “This is the first flight out test of this new version of the Sparrow, and was conducted at Israeli test range over the Mediterranean Sea.” The test was launched at 9:15 a.m. Israeli time, the army said. Russia’s state-run news service RIA Novosti first reported the detection of a ballistic missile launch in the Mediterranean more than an hour before Israel acknowledged the test. Brent crude climbed and European stocks fell after the Russian media report.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the test showed that Israel’s defense is built on an “iron wall, iron dome and iron will.” “These are the things that give us the strength to defend ourselves, and to anyone who is thinking to attack us — it’s not worthwhile,” Netanyahu said. The Israeli military said the Sparrow launch was done in coordination with a test of its Arrow anti-missile defense system, which successfully detected and tracked the target. The Sparrow is designed to simulate ballistic missiles for use in testing missile-defense systems, and that’s what probably misled the Russians, said retired Brigadier-General Shlomo Brom, former head of the Israeli military’s Strategic Planning Division. “Normally, this kind of test wouldn’t be publicly announced, so Israel was probably forced to do so by the Russian reports,” Brom, now senior Research Fellow at Tel Aviv University’s Institute for National Security Studies, said in a phone interview. “This test wasn’t necessarily directly connected with the Syrian situation.”

U.N.: 2M Syrians have fled nation

House members, usually antagonistic toward Obama, to support him because “this is something that the United States, as a country, needs to do.” He called Syrian President Bashar Assad’s alleged sarin attack, which the U.S. says killed more than 1,400 people on Aug. 21, a “barbarous act.” Obama called for Congress to act promptly. “What we are envisioning is something limited. It is something proportional,” he said in brief comments before meeting legislators. “It will degrade Assad’s capabilities. At the same time, we have a broader strategy that will allow us to upgrade the capabilities of the opposition.” The language crafted by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman, Robert Menendez, D-N.J., and the committee’s leading Republican, Bob Corker of Tennessee, calls for the use of force “in a limited and tailored manner” against military targets in Syria in response to the government’s use of “weapons of mass destruction.” Two leaders of the chamber’s hawk faction, John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., also argued on

television news programs in favor of a strike, although they remain critical of how Obama has handled the Syrian civil war. The No. 3 House lawmakers from both parties, Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and Rep. James E. Clyburn, D-S.C., remain undecided. So do most lawmakers, who are still weighing the policy merits and the political risks on a vote that may be deeply unpopular whichever way they decide. Two polls released Tuesday, from the Pew Research Center and Washington Post-ABC News, found that Americans remain opposed to U.S. military action in Syria. Yet key members and aides said Boehner’s announcement provided at least a temporary momentum swing from Saturday, when many in Congress were predicting the support Obama sought was not there. Lawmakers lining up with Obama emphasized that if the United States did not seek to deter more chemical weapons use, it would embolden Assad and his allies in Iran, hurt America’s standing around the world, and put U.S. allies, such as Israel,

Jordan and Turkey, at risk of chemical weapons attacks. The Boehner-Cantor decision “is a game-changer for the House vote, and far more important than McCain and Graham, who lead a small minority seeking greater military involvement,” said a senior Senate aide who declined to be identified because he was not authorized to speak publicly. The aide noted that a number of traditional hawks, such as Sen. Mark Steven Kirk, R-Ill., were also lining up with Obama in favor of a limited strike. Speaking before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, at the first congressional hearing on the issue, Kerry, Hagel and Joint Chiefs Chairman Martin Dempsey insisted Tuesday that inaction was unacceptable. “The risk of not acting is greater than the risk of acting,” said Kerry, a former chairman of the committee. Kerry said Assad has been responsible for a series of chemical weapons attacks numbering “in the teens,” which suggests the Syrian military has employed them far more than has been publicly known.

BEIRUT — More than 2 million Syrians have fled their country’s relentless civil war, the United Nations said Tuesday, an exodus that has doubled over the past six months and evolved into the worst refugee crisis in the world. An average of 5,000 Syrians are crossing the borders each day. With violence inside the country continuing to escalate and spread, the United Nations predicts that Syria’s refugee population could reach 3 million by the end of 2013. Syria has already become “the great tragedy of this century,” said António Guterres, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees. He called the levels of suffering and displacement among Syrians “unparalleled in recent history.” The vast majority of the refugees — 1.8 million — left in the past year, as what began as a peaceful uprising in a country of 22.5 million people mushroomed into a full-blown war involving airstrikes, ballistic missiles and, most recently, the alleged use of chemical weapons. Almost all of those who fled are being sheltered in neighboring countries. Those nations, themselves fragile, are at risk of being destabilized by the vast and sudden influx of Syrians, who typically arrive with little money and few belongings. The real number of refugees is almost certainly higher than 2 million, because many refugees don’t register with authorities. More than half of those who have left are children, the United Nations says. In addition, an estimated 4.25 million people are displaced within Syria. Countries already overburdened by the influx have begun to impose limits on whether more Syrians can come in. Egypt’s new militarybacked rulers have reversed the policy put in place by the Muslim Brotherhood and are revoking visas issued to more than 100,000 Syrians. Both Jordan and Turkey, each hosting about half a million Syrians, limit the numbers of refugees they will admit each day. Lebanon, one of the region’s smallest and most volatile nations, is giving sanctuary to the biggest number of Syrian refugees and has not imposed restrictions, although local news outlets have quoted unnamed officials as saying there are plans to do so in the future. The United Nations says 718,104 Syrians have registered in Lebanon, but the government puts the figure in excess of 1 million, meaning that one in five people currently living in Lebanon are Syrian.

Providers: Lawmakers cite conflict of interest in trip to Arizona Continued from Page A-1 Diane McWilliams, the Human Services Department’s behavioral health director, on the trip in late February or early March. Later, his company performed an audit of 15 New Mexico providers that led the state to defund them and launch a criminal investigation into possible fraud. Aldridge said two officials from OptumHealth, a state contractor that oversees mental-health providers, also participated in the Arizona trip. Papen, who has been critical of the department’s handling of the behavioral health situation, told Aldridge it was a conflict of interest “for you to be helping out picking new providers before the audit was finished.” Sen. Benny Shendo, D-Jemez Pueblo, who chairs the subcommittee, also expressed dismay about the Arizona trip. “The idea you and the [Human Services Department] were

in Arizona long before the audit is very concerning.” Aldridge said he was paid to take the trip. His company then received more than $3 million for the audit, which reportedly found as much as $36 million in overpayments to 15 New Mexico providers. Public Consulting Group’s audit led to the suspension of Medicaid funds for 14 of those companies, and many of them have had to shut down. The state has contracted with five Arizona companies at a cost of up to $17.8 million to continue services for those companies’ clients. The contracts with the Arizona firms expire at the end of the year. According to Public Consulting Group’s website, Aldridge has been with the company for more than 15 years and leads a group within PCG Health that is “focused on efforts to control costs for payers through placement of tighter controls on eligibility

and claims processing.” Aldridge leads large-scale initiatives for the states of North Carolina, Massachusetts, New Mexico and Maine, as well as the United Auto Workers Retiree Medical Benefits Trust, according to his biography on the website. Human Services Department spokesman Matt Kennicott defended the Arizona trip. Public Consulting Group “was hired as an outside consultant with wide expertise in this area. We needed to vet additional agencies to help ensure there were no disruptions in service” for 30,000 New Mexicans who receive treatment from the state-contracted providers, he said. Also testifying Tuesday was North Carolina lawyer Knicole Emanuel, who specializes in defending Medicaid providers. She told lawmakers that she has defended many clients who have been audited by Public Consulting Group. “There’s not one of the cases involving PCG that I didn’t appeal,” she said.

Emanuel said the state needs to ask a key question: “Who made sure the audit was done correctly?” She gave an example in which a PCG audit found a client in North Carolina had overbilled Medicaid by $702,000. But later, the overbilling amount was reduced to $336. Aldridge, who said he was familiar with incident cited by Emanuel, didn’t dispute her figures. But he said the amount overbilled was reduced only after the provider turned over 159 additional documents that the auditing firm had previously requested. Sen. Howie Morales, D-Silver City, pointed out that the New Mexico companies accused of overbilling have not been informed of specific accusations against them — and therefore have not had an opportunity to produce more documents. They won’t receive information about the allegations until the state Attorney General’s Office completes an investigation.

Earlier at the hearing, officials from the Human Services Department, including McWilliams, Deputy Director Brent Earnest and Larry Heyeck, deputy general counsel, also spoke to the subcommittee. McWilliams said she wasn’t trying to paint a “rosy picture” of the transition from the New Mexico providers to their Arizona replacements, but said the department is working to solve all the problems caused by the shake-up. She said about 88 percent of clinicians who were working for the providers under investigation have been rehired by the Arizona companies. Earnest said the state has paid the Arizona companies about $6 million so far. Of that, he said, about $4.2 million went to salaries of the old staff members retained by the new providers.

Smoke: New parking restrictions Fitness: Boomer generation isn’t eager to see itself as old Continued from Page A-1

ously had said, “We can raise ticket prices or we can raise attendance.” He has since focused on the combination of lower ticket prices and plenty of promotion. That gamble has paid off so far. Last year, Sandoval said, Kiwanis sold about 200 tickets online at $15 each, but this year the group has already sold 1,000 tickets online at $10 a pop. Moreover, the First National Bank of Santa Fe, the Guadalupe Credit Union, the State Employees Credit Union and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Fe have sold about 5,500 tickets. Sandoval said in the past, Kiwanis sold about 90 percent of the tickets the day of the burning. Sandoval said parents can now bring strollers into Magers Field, where a large screen will broadcast the burning. They still won’t be able to bring strollers over the bridge across the arroyo into the ballpark, but there will be places to check them if families want closer access to the giant marionette. This year’s burning also will see the addition of several exits and three projection screens in the park. Moreover, Sandoval said, there will be more volunteers at the front gate, which should expedite getting into Fort Marcy Ballpark. The new director is producing a number of associated events to get back into the public’s good graces. Sandoval started a children’s art contest, promising that the work of the winners would be featured on a poster or T-shirt. He also brought back the tradition of offering Old Man Gloom a truce, a trick to lure Zozobra out to the Fort Marcy park. The invitation ceremony hadn’t been performed since 1941, when then-Mayor Alfredo Ortiz extended it along with Will Shuster, Zozobra’s creator. Perhaps Sandoval’s most ambitious new offering was Zozofest, a two-day art festival last Friday and Saturday that featured live music and a display of rare drawings by Shuster of Old Man Gloom himself. For the first time, community members were able to see Zozobra before his final construction, and they even got a chance to stuff his skirt with written woes from the past year. One change that’s upset some is the decision to forgo the live broadcast and Web streaming of the burning. Sandoval said the decision was an attempt to get everyone to celebrate the event together and “in person.” And parking will be banned along Old Taos Highway and Artist Road, popular spots for watching the burning without paying. Sandoval said the parking ban wasn’t an effort to draw more paying customers, but rather an attempt to address local homeowners’ concerns about litter, fires and drinking. These changes have been pricey and a gamble, Sandoval said, but he thinks Santa Feans will respond to what he’s done so far. “People are excited to be involved again,” Sandoval said. “It seems like they’re willing to give us a second chance.”

Abridged history Old Man Gloom was created by Shuster in the 1920s. The artist transferred control of the burning to the Kiwanis Club in 1962, to raise money for charity. In 1976, a man was killed following a traffic jam after Zozobra, and in 1971 the National Guard was called in to quell a riot following some Fiesta celebrations. At that time, Fiesta de Santa Fe was held on Labor Day weekend, but following the 1976 incident, the City Council and the Fiesta Council changed the date to two weeks after

Labor Day. It was later moved up a week to its current date. In 1998, the year after a 20-year-old man was shot dead on the Plaza after the burning of Zozobra, the event was moved to Thursday night. Since then, no one has been injured, but attendance has fallen. In 1997, a record high of 33,000 people attended the event. Last year, it attracted about 15,000 people. The combination of high ticket prices, a long wait for the burning and a ban on strollers sparked a backlash in 2012. Hundreds signed a petition demanding Zozobra return to his roots. And the City Council called for a meeting with the Kiwanis Club to address their concerns. Ray Valdez, the veteran producer of 22 years, stepped down from his post. The club then selected Sandoval, a longtime volunteer, to take his place. Since then, the new director has earned praise from city officials, including Mayor David Coss. “It’s been good working with Ray,” Coss said. “I think the city staff feels positive about the way it’s going to work out.” Coss also said the return to $10 tickets was a family-friendly decision. But Vince Kadlubek, a member of the artist collective Meow Wolf and author of an article criticizing the 2012 burning in The Santa Fe Reporter, said he is still not convinced this year’s burning will recapture the spirit of Zozobra. “There seems to be a solid effort to get the community involved more,” Kadlubek said Tuesday afternoon. “It doesn’t really excite me too much. I am looking forward to when he comes back to Friday.” Kadbulek said the continued police presence at Zozobra is unnecessary and demeaning to the 99 percent of lawabiding citizens. Still, he said he believes Sandoval is making

good changes and that “his heart is in the right place.” In 2012, Kiwanis provided grants totaling $31,750 to the Santa Fe Fiesta Council, Las Cumbres Community Services, Many Mothers (a support group for mothers), St. Elizabeth Shelter, The Food Depot, Villa Therese Catholic Clinic, Youth Shelters and Family Services, Solace Crisis Treatment Center and Gerard’s House (a grief support group for children).

of the century. In 1954, Jack LaLanne, a fitness and nutrition buff who had an exercise program on television, marked his 40th birthday by swimming the length of the Golden Gate bridge, underwater, carrying 140 pounds of equipment. He did it to prove a point, said his widow, Elaine. “In those days, people thought anyone over 40 was over the hill.” Recent research suggests that this is far from the case. A 2010 study of muscle tissue from lifelong competitive runners in their 60s showed their leg muscles had almost as many motor units, a measure of strength, as those of active 25-year-olds. But starting exercise regimens at any age can be beneficial, according to the National Institute on Aging, which runs a website to encourage exercise among older people. Nyad’s accomplishment shows that state of mind can be as important as physical prowess, say experts on the physiology of aging. “It’s more a testament to her spirit than her body,” said Gayle Doll, director of Kansas State University’s Center on Aging. “She is relentless. Diana Nyad’s message is, you can do incredible things when you’re older. We’ve just been told that we can’t. A lot of people have the body to do it, but they don’t have her indomitable spirit.” The human body loses protein with age, and with it goes muscle mass. In so-called power sports, such as gymnastics or the 100-meter sprint, people hit their peak in their 20s. But in endurance sports like swimming or long-distance cycling, athletes don’t peak until their 30s, after many years of training. “Every time we say there are limits to the human body, someone like Diana Nyad breaks it,” said Frank Wyatt, who teaches exercise physiology at Midwestern State University in Texas. “In most studies on aging, the line goes in one direction, and it’s generally down. Not a lot gets better. But if you look at Diana Nyad, you can say maybe

our resolve does.” Doll said women often are better at endurance sports than men are, because their bodies have more fat that helps fuel their activity. “You have to work harder, but you can maintain a lot of muscle mass,” said Doll, citing a study in the 1990s in which nursing home residents who did quadriceps training almost tripled their strength. Carol Mackela, 62, of Arlington, Va., was a competitive diver in college, but didn’t dive for 33 years until 2006, when she heard an old teammate from college was still doing it. “Her dives looked better than in college,” she said. Looking around in the local area, she initially had a hard time finding a coach who would take her on. One coach “didn’t have time for adults; he wanted to fill his slots with kids who are going to the Olympics.” But Mackela, a retired government attorney, eventually found a coach and will compete this Saturday in the Northern Virginia Senior Olympics, along with other divers in their 60s, 70s, and 80s. Some things have changed since college. “Most of us are a little heavier, so in somersaulting dives, if you haven’t done it in 30 years, you have to find out where you are,” Mackela said. Older adults also need to stretch more — and conquer fears that a younger person might not have. Bernhard Stamm, 74, of Ashburn, Va., learned that lesson three years ago, when he

resumed doing field events after a hiatus of more than half a century and got so enthusiastic that he pulled his hamstring after failing to warm up properly. “You’ve got to listen to your body,” said Stamm, a retired architect who was a track and field athlete in high school in Switzerland. With 25 gold medals in senior competitions under his belt, Stamm plans to compete in the Northern Virginia Senior Olympics next week in the standing long jump, running long jump, high jump, javelin, shotput and softball throw. He’ll even be adding some tricks he didn’t know in high school. “The Fosbury flop, where you jump over backwards,” he said, referring to a move popularized in the 1968 Summer Olympics. “That didn’t exist when I was a kid, so two years ago I learned it, and now I’m doing a Fosbury flop.” Nyad is a baby boomer — part of the generation born between 1946 and 1964 — and her feat may foreshadow a change in attitudes among a generation that has never liked to think of itself as old. “She just didn’t give up. She was determined to do it,” Cooke said. “I’m thinking, ‘All right, I can’t let these little aches and pains hold me back; there’s things to do, and I’m going to get out there and do them.’ ”

Changing Mideast a dangerous prospect


arack Obama has been pilloried for his cautious response to the Arab revolutions. One critic writing in The Post calls him “a president in full flight.” Many urge the president to make a big bet in favor of democracy in the region. When the uprisings known as the Arab Spring first began, some analysts were optimistic about the prospects for democracy, but the revolutions should be viewed in terms of decades, not seasons. Few observers in Paris in 1789 would have predicted that a Corsican corporal would lead French forces to the banks of the Nile within a decade. And interventions in the French Revolution by great powers such as Austria and Prussia fanned, rather than extinguished, the nationalist flames. Big bets in foreign policy should have at least a reasonable prospect of success. My research of 20th-century American history has found that transformational foreign policy presidents who made big bets were not better in ethics or effectiveness. Woodrow Wilson placed a costly and mistaken bet on the Versailles Treaty that helped contribute to the disastrous isolationism of the 1930s. John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson made erroneous bets that Vietnam involved dominoes, not checkers, whereas Dwight Eisenhower — who coined the domino terminology — refused to intervene. And Richard Nixon, who bet successfully on an opening to China in 1971, laid down a nearly simultaneous but mistaken bet on the destruction of the Bretton Woods monetary system that helped to unleash a decade of inflation. More recently, George W. Bush made a costly strategic blunder by invading Iraq, partly in hopes of democratizing the Middle East. It is useful to compare Wilson with George H.W. Bush.

Bag ban just a first step

S In the long term, Wilson’s vision of a League of Nations was partially vindicated by the creation of the United Nations, but he lacked the leadership skills for its implementation. Bush famously said that he did not do the “vision thing,” but his prudent execution and management of foreign policy in a revolutionary time was excellent. This is not an argument against transformational leaders or big bets in U.S. foreign policy. Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman contributed crucially to the creation of the American era by sending U.S. troops to Europe and keeping them there after World War II. If plausible candidates such as Charles Lindbergh or Henry Wallace had been president, the world would have been worse. But in judging leaders in history, we need to pay attention to dogs that barked and those that did not. The big problem in foreign policy is the complexity of context. One has to understand not only international and

transnational systems but also the intricacies of domestic politics in multiple societies. This complexity gives special relevance to Aristotle’s virtue of prudence — avoiding excess or deficiency. We live in a world of diverse cultures and know very little about social engineering and how to “build nations.” That is particularly true with regard to revolutions. When we cannot be sure how to improve the world, prudence becomes an important virtue, and grandiose visions can pose a grave danger. This is sometimes forgotten by those who want Obama to place bigger bets in the revolutions of today’s Middle East. It is one thing to try to nudge events at the margins and assert our values in the long term; it is another to think we can shape revolutions we do not fully understand. There is a difference between a limited punishment of Syria for breaking an international taboo on the use of chemical weapons and becoming involved in a civil war. In foreign policy, as

in medicine, it is important to first do no harm. Bush 41, who lacked the ability to articulate a vision but was able to steer through crises, turned out to be a better leader than his son, who had a powerful vision but little contextual intelligence about the region he tried to reshape. In trying to explain the role of secretary of state, George Shultz once compared it to gardening: “the constant nurturing of a complex array of actors, interests and goals.” One of his successors, Condoleezza Rice, called for a “transformational diplomacy.” There is a role for both, depending on the context, but we should avoid the common mistake of celebrating the transformational landscape architect. In reacting to what may turn out to be a decade of Arab revolutions, the better leader is a careful gardener. Joseph S. Nye Jr. is a professor at Harvard University.

Fed recognition critical for marijuana patients


t is good to hear the Drug Policy Alliance is working to help veterans receive medical marijuana for PTSD and other wounds of war with their Freedom to Choose campaign. The Green Party has encouraged Rep. Ben Ray Luján to co-sponsor and support the federal Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act. The act will garner federal recognition of marijuana’s legitimate medical use and support New Mexico’s medical marijuana law, the Lynn and Erin Compassionate Use Act. When the federal law is passed, the act will offer another choice for veterans regarding medical treatment. Please join us and call on Rep. Luján to support the Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act. Rick Fabrick

Que viva! Thursday afternoon, I was at a retirement home to visit a friend. As I was in the process of signing papers for us to leave for a short outing, in came Don Diego de Vargas, La Reina and their court. My first reaction was, “Oh my, now we’re stuck here!” Although a reluctant observer at first, I watched as these 17th-century Spaniards introduced themselves. They greeted people one by one. They sang, they danced. Some of Vargas’ men took the hands of old women in wheelchairs and

danced with them. I saw many wrinkled faces smiling like kids at an ice cream party. We all clapped and laughed. When I left, it was with an adjusted attitude. It was a pleasure and a privilege to see the true spirit of the Fiesta de Santa Fe being brought into even this seemingly forgotten small corner of the city. Viva Don Diego! Que viva La Reina! Arriba Santa Fe!

More information please With respect to the president’s apparent intention to commit acts of war against Syria, it is essential that all evidence, analysis and other information going into the decision as well as sources of information and the reliability of the information and informants be made public. Until that happens we, who have the right to know, are in the dark and cannot make informed decisions. We are once again at the mercy of possibly false information reminiscent of the non-existent weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. We must be able to question whether we are being misled by the industrial/defense establishment, which is rapidly running out of wars to feed its insatiable appetite for profit and military aggrandizement.

anta Fe has banned the bag. Plastic bags, that is, with a 7-1 vote of the City Council last week, passing the Single-Use Bag Ordinance. The only vote in opposition came because Councilor Ron Trujillo wanted heavy plastic bags banned alongside the flimsier kind. Despite the grumbling from some (how will we pick up poop without Wal-Mart bags?) the city and its shoppers will survive. People are smart. They will figure out that reusable bags need washing; they might even be savvy enough to use only certain bags for meat and others for produce. Smaller plastic bags (still available!) will do just fine for picking up dog poop, not to mention the city-provided bags available along parks and walking trails. Folks can use paper to line trash cans, too, or buy biodegradable bags. Santa Fe will be fine without plastic bags, and the landfills and fences of Northern New Mexico — where bags get stuck along barbed wire and mesh, will thank us. What’s more, who ever saw anyone avoid Sam’s Club for lack of bags? The big-box, membership stores save money by not having bags at all. Shoppers will make it work here, just as shoppers do in Austin, Texas; Santa Monica, Calif.; Seattle, San Francisco and other cities around the country. Heck, entire countries — Ireland, for example — have dumped the plastic bag. The ban takes effect in six months, so shoppers should get ready. Start remembering to carry reusable bags now. Paper bags will still be available, but they will cost 10 cents a bag for most people (shoppers on food stamps, for example, won’t have to pay the surcharge). The city of Santa Fe will distribute free bags, and we are sure businesses will be pleased to advertise their goods and hand out the bags for free advertising. Not all reusable bags will cost extra, in other words. The City Council deserves credit for listening to citizens — especially our younger ones — who have lobbied long and hard for this change. Business concerns were taken into consideration as the ordinance was reworked. People learned about laws in other cities and researched what would work and what wouldn’t. Members of the Go Green Club at WoodGormley and Carlos Gilbert schools lobbied hard to ban the bag. Even on the night of the vote, when victory was almost assuredly theirs, the youngsters were outside holding signs and chanting for their cause. The process was both a lesson in the political process and a win for the environment. Best of all, the ordinance contains a follow-up provision. The city will monitor the ordinance to see how it is working. Maybe dog poop will cover the streets and sidewalks, while plastic bags still will be stuck to tree branches. Waste in the landfill will not decrease. Should all of that happen, the city could revisit the ban. More likely, Santa Fe will start examining other ways to protect the environment — what to do about disposable plastic bottles is already being discussed. That ban could be next. Taking a broader view, we urge the city to work on improving recycling habits of individuals and businesses. For a city that is thrifty with water, we are reckless with trash and send far too much back to the dumps, rather than reusing. Changing habits is seldom easy, but one step at a time — with children leading the way — Santa Fe is going to reduce its impact on the Earth.

Using Nokia, Microsoft wants to catch up Shooting defendant’s By Matti Huuhtanen and Michael Liedtke The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Microsoft’s acquisition of Nokia’s troubled smartphone business represents a daring $7.2 billion attempt by the software giant and a once-influential cellphone maker to catch up with the mobile computing revolution that threatens to leave them in the technological dust. The deal announced late Monday offers both companies a chance to make up for lost time with a strategy to meld their software and hardware into a cohesive package, like rival Apple has done. But there are plenty of reasons to question whether the copycat approach will pay off. Unlike Apple, Microsoft Corp. makes most of its money from software for personal computers — a still-profitable franchise that has gradually been crumbling as smartphones and tablets supplant laptop and desktop machines. By some estimates, more than two-thirds of the computing devices being sold now are either smartphones or tablets, and there are few signs that trend will change during the next decade. To complicate Microsoft’s transition, the Redmond, Wash., company is being led by a lame duck. Microsoft CEO Steve

Ballmer, who negotiated the Nokia deal, recently announced plans to retire within the next year in a tacit admission that the company needs a different leader to blaze new trails. The managerial limbo raises even more doubts about whether Microsoft will be able to turn Nokia’s phones into more effective weapons in a mobile-computing battle against devices powered by Google Inc.’s Android software and Apple Inc.’s iPhone and IPad. “It’s a three-horse race, and Microsoft knows it needs to come up with a more welldefined plan for mobile devices

to catch up,” said Darren Hayes, a computer science professor at Pace University in New York. “This was an essential acquisition for them.” The Nokia deal didn’t go over well with investors who have already become weary of Microsoft’s largely fruitless efforts to evolve into something more than a PC-dependent company. Microsoft’s stock shed $1.52, or 4.6 percent, to close Tuesday at $31.88. Nokia Corp.’s shares surged $1.22, or 31 percent, to finish at $5.12. Nokia, a Finnish company, has seen its cellphone business

unravel since Apple revolutionized the way people use handsets with the 2007 introduction of the iPhone. Nokia’s problems grew worse in 2009 after Google began giving away its Android software to smartphone makers, spawning an array of sleek, lowcost alternatives. In an attempt to bounce back, Nokia lured Stephen Elop away from Microsoft to become CEO nearly three years ago. That move has not worked out well for Nokia’s shareholders. Even with Tuesday’s rally, Nokia’s stock remains about 40 percent below where it stood when Elop became CEO. Despite those losses, Elop has emerged as a candidate to replace Ballmer as Microsoft’s CEO. Elop is stepping down as Nokia’s CEO to re-join Microsoft, where he will oversee the company’s devices division. Nokia board Chairman Risto Siilasmaa will serve as the company’s interim CEO. Elop decided to abandon Nokia’s old operating system in 2011 in favor of Microsoft’s Windows system for phones. That move established Nokia as Microsoft’s most important partner in the mobile device market. About four out of every five phones running on Windows are made by Nokia, according to the latest information from research firm International Data Corp.

10 games not to miss this season By Carlos Monarrez Detroit Free Press

The NFL season begins Thursday. Here’s a look at the matchups fans don’t want to miss:

Serena Williams serves historic ‘double bagel’ By Howard Fendrich The Associated Press

NEW YORK — From an ace on the first point to a stinging return on the last, Serena Williams was close to perfect in the U.S. Open quarterfinals. The score said it all Tuesday night: 6-0, 6-0.

Yes, Williams is looking better and better with each match at the year’s last Grand Slam tournament. With two more wins — no matter the exact scores — she’ll earn a fifth title at Flushing Meadows and 17th major championship overall. The No. 1-ranked and No.

1-seeded Williams shut out 18th-seeded Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain, the first “double bagel” in a quarterfinal at Flushing Meadows since 1989, when 18-time major title winner Martina Navratilova did it to Manuela Maleeva.

Mistakes cost Lady Horsemen

Set to block

(and hit, too)

By Edmundo Carrillo The New Mexican

Buccaneers at Jets If you’re a fan of train wrecks, this is must-see TV. Will Rex Ryan be fired after this game or is Mark Sanchez due to have Butt Fumble II? And don’t forget Darrelle Revis, who is making his return to MetLife Stadium after being unceremoniously dumped by the Jets in the offseason.

49ers at Seahawks What’s your deal!? This is our deal. This venomous matchup came within a late Seahawks defensive stand against Atlanta to becoming a reality in the NFC Championship game last season. Make no mistake, this is the most intense divisional rivalry going in the NFL right now, and the fire was just stoked again when 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh basically called the Seahawks a bunch of cheaters.

Broncos at Giants Who’s the better quarterback in the family? Who cares? It’s all about who’s the better fake rapper in the family. After putting together one of the all-time great football commercials, “Football on Your Phone,” the Manning brothers lace it up to face each other probably for the last time — unless they meet up in the Super Bowl.

Chiefs at Eagles Andy Reid returns to Philadelphia after 14 seasons in the crow’s nest of the Eagles, who are now led by excollege coach Chip Kelly. A national audience will also check in on former 49ers quarterback Alex Smith, who is trying to reboot his career with the Chiefs.

Broncos at Colts The visiting quarterback will get a rousing ovation at Lucas Oil Stadium when he returns to Indy for the first time since his tearful farewell after the 2011 season. Peyton Manning will go head-to-head with his successor, Andrew Luck, in a matchup that will feel like the passing of the torch.

Steelers at Packers The last time these two storied franchises played each other was in Super Bowl XLV, when MVP Aaron Rodgers outdueled Ben Roethlisberger in Jerry World for the Lombardi Trophy. The only problem is if either team clinches early, then the luster will be off this matchup.

Patriots at Ravens These two teams are the class of the conference after meeting in the AFC Championship game the past two seasons. Even though the Ravens routed the Patriots in January, five of the previous seven games between these two teams were decided by six or fewer points. Can Baltimore’s restocked roster keep up with New England?

Falcons at 49ers Matt Ryan and Co. came up short on fourth down against the 49ers at

Santa Fe High senior Hannah Hargrove, right, developed her serving and hitting skills during the offseason. She is expected to be a vital part of the Demonettes’ chances at reaching the state tournament this year. JANE PHILLIPS/THE NEW MEXICAN

Demonette ready to show off skills honed in offseason By James Barron The New Mexican


hanks, mom … ” That was Hannah Hargrove, age 14, after her first day of volleyball tryouts at Santa Fe High. The almost 6-foot freshman had been talked into trying out the sport after 10 years of playing soccer. It was time for a change, especially after her final year playing as an eighth-grader. “It was really, really rough,” Hargrove said of that final soccer season. “Just with teammates and coaches. Normally, it’s 11-v-11 [players], but there were games where we had just eight players. It was a rough season, and I was just burned out.” Sam Estrada, the Demonettes

head coach, met Hargrove at a high school showcase at the Santa Fe Convention Center and invited her to check out his program. With some prodding from her mother, Amie Hargrove, she gave volleyball a shot. “ … For ruining my life!” Day 1 did not go as expected. It wasn’t just that Hargrove was trying out for a sport she had never played before. “I remember not being comfortable,” Hargrove said. But she recalled how welcoming everyone was, from the players down to the coaches. It was one particular coach who gave her the motivation to keep playing. “I remember [assistant] coach Mary [Louise Romero],” Hargrove said. “I had never met someone so positive and outgoing.”

Sports information: James Barron, 986-3045, Design and headlines: Kristina Dunham,

That open invitation has blossomed into a burgeoning career for the senior middle blocker who is now 6-foot-1. An offseason filled with club volleyball and a summer of camps have transformed Hargrove into a potential force in the front row. It’s all based on what Estrada and the Demonettes saw over the summer, however, because Hargrove has yet to hit the court. She missed Santa Fe High’s season-opening match at Valencia on Aug. 27 because of an unspecified emergency, so her season will begin Friday during pool play at the Moriarty Invitational. Estrada already has an idea of what opponents will see from Hargrove. “She’s a different player,” Estrada said. “She has a great floater jump

It was St. Michael’s first taste of quality Class A-AAA competition when the Lady Huskies of Albuquerque Hope Christian — that’s state runner-up Hope Hope Christian 2 Christian — St. Michael’s 0 came to town for a nondistrict girls soccer match on Tuesday. The Lady Horsemen left the pitch at the Christian Brothers Athletic Complex with a bitter aftertaste as Hope won 2-0. “This is our first [match] that really tested us,” St. Michael’s goalkeeper Alyssa Evans said. “In our other games we had control, but in this game we were in panic mode.” After an evenly matched first half, Lady Horsemen head coach Robyn Serge said, her team was simply not physical enough for the larger and faster Lady Huskies. “The second half came out in their favor,” Serge said. “They came out with more speed and more muscle and more height, and they took advantage of us. Fitness was an issue again on our end.” Hope Christian’s Bella Starkweather controlled the ball around midfield and ended up in a one-on-one situation with Evans, which she won to get the Lady Huskies on the board in the 43rd minute. Nine minutes later, Hope’s Alivia Lewis got another shot past Evans to make it 2-0. As far as Serge is concerned, those two goals were due to poor passing by the Lady Horsemen. “We made two mistakes where we put passes right in the middle of the field and an unmarked player had a shot on target,” she said. St. Michael’s (3-1) usual plan of feeding the ball to leading scorer Nique Enloe did not work thanks to a strong defensive effort by the Lady Huskies. “Their back line of defense was stellar,” Serge said. “They were organized, and they didn’t let anything through. Our goal was to get the ball through to Nique, and we couldn’t get the ball through this time.” Due to Hope’s defense, the number of shots by the Lady Huskies greatly outnumbered the number by the Lady Horsemen. “We didn’t have many chances to shoot, which is something we can improve on,” Evans said. When St. Michael’s did manage to get a shot, Hope (1-0) quickly gained possession and drove it downfield. “We really didn’t test their goalkeeper with too many positive shots on target,” Serge said. “[The shots] just went right at her, and she made the saves. They counterattacked quickly with their speed, and we were gassed out in the second half.” Hope came out firing to start the match with two shots in the first two minutes. That would be the theme, as the Hope strikers tested Evans all day. Despite the constant attack, Evans only let the two goals slip through. “She saved us today, she really did,” Serge said. “She controlled the 6-yard box and was on top of her game.” Not one to take all the credit, Evans said her team was the real savior. “The defense really saved me from being in a one-on-one situation,” she said. If this was a preview for state tournament time — both programs have a history of deep runs in November — the Lady Horsemen will know what to expect if the two teams cross paths. “We’ll be more prepared when we see them again,” Serge said.

TOP 25

Clemson gets best ranking in 25 years By Ralph D. Russo The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Breaking down the AP college football poll after Week 1 of the regular season. Making a statement: Barring a severe case of Clemsoning by Clemson, the Tigers should be in the national championship race for most of this season. No. 4 Clemson surged Tuesday to its highest ranking in The Associated Press poll in 25 years after the Tigers won the biggest game of the opening weekend of the college football season, a 38-35 victory against Georgia. The Tigers received onefirst-place vote in the new Top 25 and have their best showing in the poll since Sept. 12, 1988, when they were No. 3. Alabama remains No. 1 and received 58 of 60 first-place votes from the media panel after beating Virginia Tech 35-10 to start the season. No. 2 Oregon and No. 3 Ohio State flip-flopped spots from the preseason rankings. The Buckeyes received one first-place vote. Stanford is No. 5. As for Clemson, coach Dabo Swinney’s team should be able to enjoy its lofty status for a while as long the Tigers avoid Clemsoning at its worst. Clemsoning is a term college football fans use when teams with high expectations lose to inferior opponents. Over the years, it’s been a nasty habit of the Tigers.

Northern New Mexico

S.F. Waldorf sweeps Lady Lobos SCOREBOARD The New Mexican

The Lady Wolves of Santa Fe Waldorf have yet to lose a game this volleyball season. They smashed Escalante 25-5, 25-8, 25-18 at Christian Life Academy in nondistrict play Tuesday to snag their second sweep in as many matches. Cecelia Barnard had nine aces, while Keifer Nace had six for the Lady Wolves. Together, they combined for 40 service points. Waldorf (2-0) head coach

Josie Adams said the players setting teammates up for points were key to the blowout win. “The setters Keifer Nace and Sophie Linett played with a ton of heart and were very scrappy,” she said. “This was a bigger school and we brought it to them.” The Lady Wolves have been practicing very hard, and Adams said it shows in matches. “Practices have been super serious, and it’s paying off,” she said.

Adams used her entire bench, which included eighth-graders, in the final game of the match. BOYS

CAPITAl 6, VAlENCIA 1 It seems like nothing can stop Brayan Perez. The Jaguars senior had four goals and an assist in a nondistrict home win over Valencia. Perez had goals in the 39th, 45th, 54th and 78th minutes of the match. He also assisted in Jason Alarcon’s goal in the 76th minute as

Capital improved to 4-0. Even though Perez is making good on his opportunities, Capital head coach Eugene Doyle said his goals are the product of a team effort. “Brayan is playing really well,” he said. “Everyone has been giving him great passes, but it’s a team effort. Our defense has been able to shut down our opponent’s opportunities.” Senior Luis Rios had the first goal for the Jaguars in the 24th minute, and goalkeeper Rene Arroyo had eight saves.

Set: Demonettes have eyes on state tourney Continued from Page B-1 serve, which she didn’t have last year. At UNM [camp] this summer, she helped us quite a bit from that aspect. I attribute that to club play. She produces so many block kills for us, it’s amazing. I think we’ll intimidate a lot of people.” Hargrove’s blocking has been a constant since she started as a sophomore in 2011. She led the Demonettes in that category the last two seasons, including 72 solo blocks in 2012. While her length made her a nuisance in the middle, Hargrove’s hitting left something to be desired, although Estrada said the loss of Shannon Bates at setter to a knee injury had an impact on the number of chances Hargrove had to hit from her spot. “It was not so much a Hannah thing as it was a passing thing,” Estrada said. “In the middle, if you don’t have the pass in system up to the net, you can’t run the quick [sets] in the middle. She was just relying more on her blocking and was there to hit when the ball was there.” Still, Hargrove benefited from the continuous reps she got playing for the Albuquerque Rebels Volleyball club team in the spring. The club also strengthened her confidence in her ability to hit the ball harder and got her into better condition.

Santa Fe Preparatory is trying to graduate from the power of two. For the past two seasons, the Blue Griffins have found success in the regular season by riding the arms of two hitters. In 2011, it was Aysia Felson and Sarah Ihlefeld. In 2012, it was Joy Maran and Desiray Anderson. But in 2013, Prep head coach Kieren Bhakta would like a more rounded attack at the net. Anderson, Prep’s top outside hitter, and Maran, the middle blocker, return from a team that lost to eventual Class AA champion Bosque School in the state quarterfinals, but Bhakta knows that it will take more than two hitters to take the next step.

“When you play against Serena,” Suarez Navarro said, “you know these things can happen.” Williams won 53 of 71 points and dominated pretty much every statistical category. The first set took all of 19 minutes. The second was slower, lasting 33 minutes, but no less lopsided. Williams was asked whether she’d describe her performance as close to flawless. “Of course not,” the defending champion said with a laugh. “I played good, though. I played really good. I was just more focused than anything. You know, I like to believe there is room for improvement.”

Estrada had advised Hargrove that playing on the club circuit also could get her name out there with potential college coaches. Hargrove now gives him credit for those sage words, as she has received interest from several NCAA Division II schools in Colorado, plus schools in the Midwest and in New York City. “For me, originally, it had just been for more reps,” Hargrove said. “I just wanted to keep

playing. Once I got there, I realized how important it was to be out there [for recruiting purposes], so it was a two-forone deal.” It might turn out for a threefor-one deal, as her improved performance only fuels expectations that Santa Fe High can win the District 2AAAA title and make a run to the Class AAAA State Tournament. The Demonettes last made it to state in 2010, when Hargrove

was a promising freshman who jumped from the C-Team to the junior varsity by the end of the season. “We’ve been talking about that a lot,” Hargrove said. “Everyone is so determined and we’ve put in so many hours. We really think we can make it this year and really have an impact at state.” If that happens, maybe she can amend that statement to her mom.

Doing her part to make some noise at the net is sophomore Bianca Gonzales. She made strides toward the end of last season, but Prep is trying to feature her more to offset defenses focusing on the Blue Griffins’ dynamic duo. Gonzales warmed up late in Prep’s sweep of Escalante on Saturday, picking up a couple of kills in Game 3 and showing more power in her swing. “She usually tries to place it,” Bhakta said. “We’ve been working with her on hitting it harder and squaring herself toward the court instead of off of it.” uuu

Santa Fe High head coach Sam Estrada took advantage of a 10-day break between matches for the Demonettes and took a vacation for Labor Day — to watch volleyball in

Long Beach, Calif. Estrada took in Long Beach State’s Mizuno Invitational and watched the 49ers go 1-2 in the tournament. While it was a welcome respite from the prep season grind, Estrada used his time at the tournament to hone his coaching eye. “It was pretty interesting to watch the dynamics at their level, seeing kids miss assignments or just not producing,” Estrada said. “You always learn from those things, watching them warm up and stretch. I think a lot of that was beneficial.” Santa Fe High heads to the Moriarty Invitational on Sept. 6, along with Capital, St. Michael’s, Santa Fe Indian School and Los Alamos. uuu

Chela Butler is back — just

not in her customary head coaching role, though. Butler is coaching the junior varsity at Monte del Sol and helping head coach Alfredo Lujan with the varsity. Butler, who coached 19 seasons at St. Michael’s before resigning in 2011, amassed a 317-187 record over 26 years with the Lady Horsemen and at Santa Fe High. uuu

Looking for an early dark horse in Class AAA this season? Try Albuquerque Sandia Prep, which followed a tight sweep at the hands of fourtime Class AAA state champion Pojoaque Valley (25-24, 25-19, 25-21) by taking down Class AAAA Moriarty in three games. Sandia Prep went 8-16 a season ago, but reached the Class AAA state tournament.

That might be bad news for her opponent in Friday’s semifinals, 2011 French Open champion Li Na of China. Asked in an on-court interview if her game is peaking, Williams replied: “No. Not yet. I hope not. I’m just trying to do the best that I can.” In Friday’s semifinals, Williams will play 2011 French Open champion Li Na of China. In men’s action Tuesday, defending champion Andy Murray and encountered some problems along the way to a 6-7 (5), 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 victory over 65th-ranked Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan in the fourth round. Ahead 5-3 in the opening tiebreaker, Murray dropped four

points in a row. Serving for the second set at 5-1, Murray hit a volley-lob that Istomin tracked down and, back to the net, sent back with a betweenthe-legs shot. What should have been an easy tap-in winner became a flubbed volley, and Murray put his hand to his face. But he wound up taking that game, and was on his way to improving to 30-2 over his last five Grand Slam tournaments. Next for Murray is a quarterfinal against No. 9 Stanislas Wawrinka. A day after his Swiss Davis Cup teammate and friend, Roger Federer, lost, Wawrinka reached the round of eight at the U.S. Open for the second time by beating

No. 5 Tomas Berdych, the 2010 Wimbledon runner-up, 3-6, 6-1, 7-6 (6), 6-2 in Louis Armstrong Stadium at night. In the afternoon, top-seeded Novak Djokovic won 45 of 53 service points while eliminating 43rd-ranked Marcel Granollers 6-3, 6-0, 6-0 in a grand total of only 79 minutes. Djokovic, who won the 2011 U.S. Open and lost in last year’s final to Murray, reached his 18th consecutive major quarterfinal. Now comes a match against 21st-seeded Mikhail Youzhny, who was two points from defeat but came back to edge two-time major champion Lleyton Hewitt 6-3, 3-6, 6-7 (3), 6-4, 7-5.

Red Sox defeat Tigers The Associated Press

BOSTON — Jon Lester outdueled Max Scherzer and Boston beat Detroit 2-1 on Tuesday night, ending the Tigers righthander’s chance to become just the second pitcher to open a season with a 20-1 record. Lester (13-8) lowered his ERA to 1.71 in his past six starts. He allowed one earned run and eight hits with a season-high nine strikeouts and no walks. Scherzer (19-2), who won his first 13 decisions, lost for the first time since July 13 when Texas beat him 7-1. Roger Clemens is the only pitcher to start 20-1. He ended up 20-3 with the Yankees in 2001. Boston scored on Will Middlebrooks’ two-run single in the fifth. Detroit’s Jose Iglesias doubled in a run in the second in the matchup of division leaders. Koji Uehara pitched the ninth for his 17th save in 20 opportunities and extended his scoreless streak to 25 innings. Miguel Cabrera, who missed three games with abdominal and groin problems, returned for Detroit and went 0 for 4. YAnkEES 6, WhitE Sox 4 In New York, Eduardo Nunez’s two-run double capped a fiverun eighth inning for New York. Pinch-hitter Curtis Granderson tied the score with an RBI single off reliever Donnie Veal and New York went on to win for the 12th time in 14 home games. Alexei Ramirez hit a two-run triple and Alejandro De Aza homered for the last-place White Sox who dropped their fifth straight. Alfonso Soriano’s two-run single off Nate Jones (4-5) cut the deficit to 4-3. Boone Logan (5-2) pitched a perfect eighth, and Mariano Rivera earned his 40th save. Derek Jeter finished with two hits, giving him 3,315 to pass Eddie Collins (3,313) for ninth on the career list. indiAnS 4, orioLES 3 In Cleveland, Ubaldo Jimenez pitched six shutout innings while Yan Gomes and Asdrubal Cabrera drove in two runs apiece, and Cleveland survived a shaky ninth inning. Jimenez (10-9) has allowed three earned runs or less in eight consecutive starts. The right-hander allowed four hits. Gomes’ two-run double was the key hit in Cleveland’s sixth. Cabrera had sacrifices flies in the fourth and sixth. Orioles starter Chris Tillman (15-5) allowed four runs in 5⅓ innings. The right-hander has one win in his last six starts. roYALS 4, MArinErS 3 In Kansas City, Mo., Salvador Perez drove in Mike Moustakas with two outs in the eighth inning for Kansas City, which survived after blowing a threerun lead. Billy Butler grounded into a double play against reliever Yoervis Medina (4-4) when Moustakas legged out a double to center in the eighth. Perez followed with a single to left, and Moustakas had just enough time for a headfirst slide ahead of Endy Chavez’s throw to home. Luke Hochevar (4-2) got two outs in the eighth to leave runners stranded on second and third, and Greg Holland pitched a perfect ninth for his 31st straight save and 38th on the year. tWinS 9, AStroS 6 (12 inningS) In Houston, Clete Thomas scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch in the 12th inning and Darin Mastroianni added a tworun double for Minnesota.

Snider’s homer lifts Pirates past Brewers 4-3 The Associated Press

MILWAUKEE — Pinchhitter Travis Snider homered in the ninth inning to lift Pittsburgh to a 4-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night that clinched the Pirates’ first non-losing record in 21 seasons. Snider drove a 2-2 pitch from Jim Henderson (3-5) over the wall in center for his second pinch-hit homer of the season. He also accomplished the feat against the Chicago Cubs on May 21. rEdS 1, cArdinALS 0 In Cincinnati, Speedy Billy Hamilton got his first major league steal and came around on Todd Frazier’s double in the seventh inning, sending Cincinnati to the victory. Hamilton made his big league debut as a pinch runner for Ryan Ludwick, who led off the seventh with a single against Seth Maness (5-2). After Maness threw to first three times, Hamilton took off and beat catcher Yadier

Molina’s off-target throw. The touted prospect scored easily on Frazier’s hit and got congratulatory slaps in the dugout. dodgErS 7, rockiES 4 In Denver, Ricky Nolasco pitched six strong innings, Carl Crawford had three hits and the Dodgers earned their sixth consecutive win. Crawford singled in a pair of runs in the second to spark the offense in the absence of injured catalyst Yasiel Puig. The Cuban slugger was rested a day after he aggravated a right knee strain. nAtionALS 9, PhiLLiES 6 In Philadelphia, Wilson Ramos hit a three-run homer and Corey Brown also went deep to back Gio Gonzalez, leading Washington to the victory. Still clinging to postseason hopes, the Nationals overcame a sloppy all-around effort that included three errors, four unearned runs and four wild pitches. They remained 7½ games behind Cincinnati for the second wild-card spot.

BrAVES 3, MEtS 1 In Atlanta, Kris Medlen pitched seven strong innings to help Atlanta get another win at home. Andrelton Simmons and Evan Gattis homered for the Braves, who have won 20 of 24 at Turner Field to improve the major leagues’ best home record to 51-19. PAdrES 3, giAntS 2 In San Diego, Chris Denorfia hit a go-ahead RBI single in the seventh inning to lift the Padres to the victory. Nick Hundley drew a leadoff walk in the seventh from rookie reliever Jake Dunning, who was called up earlier in the day from Triple-A Fresno. Ronnie Cedeno followed with a single to send Hundley to third and bring on Javier Lopez. MArLinS 6, cUBS 2 In Chicago, Donovan Solano had three hits, including a two-run double, and the Miami bullpen combined for 4⅔ hitless innings. Christian Yelich drove in three runs with a double and

single for the Marlins. INTERLEAGUE BLUE JAYS 10, diAMondBAckS 4

In Phoenix, Edwin Encarnacion, Rajai Davis, Adam Lind and Moises Sierra homered in Toronto’s fifth win in six games.

The Blue Jays jumped out to a 5-0 lead against Wade Miley (9-10). Todd Redmond (3-2) allowed three runs and four hits in five innings for his second win in a row. The Diamondbacks have lost three straight and five of six, all at home. Adam Eaton, Didi Gregorius and Miguel Montero went deep for Arizona.

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Thousands of tourists each day drive past Tusayan’s scattering of modest hotels, restaurants and gift shops, listening as helicopters buzz overhead on their way to the Grand Canyon’s South Rim. Developers have sought for decades to seize on the heavy traffic in the town of about 600, just outside the national park’s entrance. An Italian company appeared poised to make that happen with plans that were themselves grand: a dude ranch, high-end boutiques, five-star hotels, a cultural center, hundreds of homes and a high-density shopping area just off the highway. But Stilo Development Group USA has defaulted on an agreement with town officials, and its application to access land it owns has hit a snag with the U.S. Forest Service. The town hasn’t given up on Stilo, but its mayor has made clear he wants to see some progress soon and a promise to turn over 40 acres for affordable housing fulfilled. Aside from fewer than 10 private parcels, the companies that run the hotels and feed the tourists own the homes in Tusayan. “We have a structure. We have an agreement. We have a path. It’s up to them to perform,” Mayor Greg Bryan said. “I would not have invested the last threeplus years in doing this if I didn’t have confidence it could take place. I certainly don’t want to have to look for a new dance partner. At the same time, time is ticking, and people don’t have homes.” Buying a home in Tusayan has been a dream of some residents since before the community incorporated in 2010. But with many people working lowerwage service jobs, it’s unclear how many can afford a residence of their own. Stilo was supposed to deed the 40 acres to the town no later than April 22 — 14 days after the Town Council approved annexation and rezoning petitions related to three properties that the company owns in Tusayan. The town issued a default notice in early July. The two sides have scheduled a mediation hearing in late September to decide how to move forward, but they hope to avoid it by amending the agreement before then. Among the things they’ll have to change is having the town instead apply for the easements for road construction and utilities on Forest Service land to reach the two properties. The agency said its rules require that easements be issued to the public road agency that has jurisdiction, not a development company. Stilo also has said it would turn over 20 acres immediately if the town agrees not to revert the zoning, and it would hand over the other 20 acres after the Forest Service signs off on the easements. “From Stilo’s standpoint, they would be looking for a little bit more certainty, as well,” Stilo spokesman Andy Jacobs said. “If the future, the political winds shift, the project doesn’t blow up. This is probably the crux of the deal right now.” Without the Forest Service’s approvals, the rest of the development that would transform Tusayan is on hold, Jacobs said. That includes securing a water source, a process environmentalists and Grand Canyon officials are watching closely. Jacobs said Stilo pulled back an application to the Arizona Corporation Commission to form a water company because it needed approval for the easements first. “We had the cart before the horse on that one,” he said. Nearly 2.5 million vehicles pass through Tusayan each year on the way to the Grand Canyon, according to state Department of Transportation estimates. The agency recently spent $4 million to improve the highway and make the town safer for pedestrians and plans to expand the airport in town to accommodate commercial passenger flights. About 100,000 of those vehicles park in Tusayan and take the shuttle into the national park, among the country’s busiest with 4.5 million visitors annually. Clarinda Vail, whose family owns property in Tusayan and has fought Stilo’s plans over the years, said she’s glad to see the Town Council taking Stilo to task on the development agreement. She doesn’t want to see the council give too much to get a clear title on 20 acres that doesn’t have the infrastructure for electricity, phones or water. “There are a lot of people that maybe were excited about the possibility [of homes] that are now really questioning Stilo’s intentions.”

ORWICH, Vt. — In spring, there is the maple syrup. In summer, there are tours of artisanal cheesemakers. In fall, it’s all about the foliage. And in winter, you’d better have skis strapped to the roof rack. But whatever time of year you visit Vermont, there is one slice of foodie paradise just off Interstate 91 in Norwich that knows no season. Folks outside New England might know King Arthur Flour Co. mostly by the paper bags of its signature product that line grocers’ baking aisles. But odd as it sounds, the more than 220-year-old company’s headquarters — nestled into a rolling field just over the Connecticut River from Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H. — is a must-stop destination. Because this is no soulless corporate HQ. That’s obvious the moment you pull up to the sprawling but beautiful post-and-beam building. Waves of freshly baked goodness waft out to you in the parking lot. First you whiff bread, then maybe scones. Or is it muffins?

Definitely sugar cookies in the mix, too. Step inside and the aromas intensify. Dead ahead is a café backed by a wall of freshly baked breads and pastries. To the right, an open kitchen where cavernous ovens produce heaps of carby treats. But resist and head first to the left, where a massive store offers endless baking gadgets and supplies, not to mention every variety of flour and baking mix a home — or pro — cook could hope for. If you time it right, the demo kitchen in the back corner will be showing off — and sampling — all manner of goodies. Once you’ve shopped up an appetite, return to the cafe. The baked goods, of course, are the stars. There are daily soups and salads, as well as numerous sandwiches made using the artisanal breads baked onsite. Much of the produce comes from a farm down the street. And of course there are plenty of those wonderful Vermont cheeses. Want something lighter? Grab two slices of toast (any bread they have) and pair it with a house spread — artichoke tapenade, cider cinnamon, jalapeño and Cabot cheddar, white bean hummus, red pepper hummus or black bean. Go for the tapenade, which is at once creamy and tangy, sharp and rich, and pair it with slices of the harvest grain loaf,

King Arthur Flour Co. in Norwich, Vermont offers fresh pastries, kitchen gadgets and even cooking classes which is both substantial and light, with a gentle crust. If grab-and-go is more your style, the café is flanked by refrigerators with ready-to-eat tuna salads, kale slaw, sweet chili baked tofu, local meats, fresh mozzarellas, as well as plenty of Vermont cheeses and butters. Best bet? Keep it simple — grab a wedge of cheddar, a baguette, and call it good. If you can afford to build a bit more time into your visit, plan ahead and check out the Baking Education Center’s class offerings. The classes — which range from quick flatbread and cookie courses to intensive, weeklong baking 101 immersions — are all taught in the beautiful kitchen classrooms right next to the café. Warning: classes fill up fast. Now that you’ve had your carb fix, you might want to wash it down with some cool and refreshing fat. Less than 2 miles away over the river in Hanover is Morano Gelato, which serves shockingly good gelato. Owner Morgan Morano spent six years researching gelato in Italy before opening the shop in 2010 on this college town’s quaint main drag. The ingredients are local and the gelato is made fresh daily, all of which shows. This is killer gelato. Not killer good for New Hampshire, but killer good for Italy.

Miss America pageant returns to Atlantic City By Wayne Parry

The Associated Press


TLANTIC CITY, N.J. — The Miss America pageant is back in the city where it began, six years after spurning the city for Las Vegas, Nev. The pageant held a welcoming ceremony in Atlantic City on Tuesday for the 53 contestants, one from each state plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The contestants filed out of Boardwalk Hall, where the competition will begin next week and culminate days later, and walked across the Boardwalk to a stage. There, they participated in the traditional signing-in ceremony, in which each of them signed her state on a map of the United States and gave a few words of introduction. Most spoke of how happy they were that the pageant had come home again. “I really couldn’t be happier that Miss America is back here in Atlantic City!” said Miss Alabama, Chandler Champion. “It’s my very first time in Atlantic City,” added Miss Alaska, Michelle Taylor. “Thank you so much for welcoming us back.” Miss Massachusetts, Amanda Narciso, added, “We appreciate you, we love you and we can’t wait to perform for you.” Three nights of preliminary competition will begin on Sept. 10. The traditional Show Us Your Shoes Parade will be held Sept. 14, and the nationally televised finale will be held on Sept. 15. The loudest cheer went up among Boardwalk spectators for the hometown entrant, Miss New Jersey, Cara McCollum, who proclaimed, “It’s been too long since New Jersey has had Miss America.” Tuesday’s welcoming ceremony also included the unveiling of a sculpture of Miss America holding out a tiara to

Rivera had been scheduled to moderate a panel to mark the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

a successor on the Boardwalk. The Miss America pageant moved to Las Vegas, Nev. in 2006 in hopes of attracting a younger audience as TV ratings continued to slide. It was lured back to Atlantic City in part by the promise of increased subsidies, which are to total more than $7 million over three years. The pageant, originating in 1920 as the Fall Frolic, started as little more than a bathing suit revue that was a way to drum up business for the shore resort after Labor Day. It broke viewership records in its heyday and bills itself as one of the world’s largest scholarship programs for women. Last year, the Miss America Organization and its state and local organizations made available more than $45 million in scholarship assistance. With casino industry revenues down for the seventh straight year, the city and state are hoping the pageant can give Atlantic City a fresh boost, showcasing recent improvements. This week, the contestants will pose for photos while shopping at Atlantic City’s downtown outlet malls and having dinner at a restaurant near a Boardwalk casino.

Screening can help prevent a stroke

Dear Annie: Atrial fibrillation is a serious health issue that can lead to stroke. I didn’t even really know about it until my wife and I attended a preventive health screening at a local church where they checked for atrial fibrillation and other stroke risk factors. It turns out that atrial fibrillation is an irregular heartbeat that you may not even feel. We had no idea my wife had this condition until the screening. We brought the results to our doctor’s office, and they jumped on it. An EKG confirmed the screening results and told us that my wife was on the verge of having a stroke. This screening saved her life. September is Atrial Fibrillation Awareness Month, and I hope everyone will be checked for it. It is treatable. Finding it and working with your doctor to manage it can save your life or the life of someone you love. — Dewey Bandy, Zephyr Hills, Fla. Dear Dewey Bandy: Thank goodness you and your wife attended the screening. We hope your letter will serve as a reminder to all of our readers to talk to their doctor about being tested for atrial fibrillation. Dear Annie: I recently learned that my husband of 40 years has reconnected with an old flame. I don’t think anything has happened between them yet, but I am sure he’d go for it if he wouldn’t get caught. So, I would like to address this to her: Dear Other Woman: My husband is a good provider, but don’t expect companionship. I can count on one hand the number of times we have seen a movie in 40 years. Don’t expect him to attend church or any other activity with you. Don’t expect to have a social life. Don’t expect him to go for a walk with you, even though he has a number of health issues and a walk would be good for him. Do expect to work full time and still do almost everything else to run the household. Do expect him

Forest Service: ‘We will find Token’ By Robert Nott The New Mexican

As darkness fell on Northern New Mexico on Tuesday night, some 140 people were still combing the Jemez Mountains for missing firefighter Token Adams.

County clerk fights order on same-sex marriages Stover wants Supreme Court to issue ruling By Barry Massey

Santa Fe City Clerk Yolanda Vigil talks Tuesday to City Councilor Ron Trujillo about the candidate packet for mayor at the City Clerk’s Office. Candidate packets for mayor and city councilor were made available Tuesday for the March 2014 election. PHOTOS BY JANE PHILLIPS/THE NEW MEXICAN

Let the games begin By Tom Sharpe The New Mexican


ineteen people showed up at the City Clerk’s Office Tuesday, the first day to pick up candidate packets for the March 4 municipal election. Some waited with their supporters in the hallway, often for more than an hour, for the city clerk to call them into her office to explain the process. Eight are planning to run for mayor: They include four of the eight current city councilors, Patti J. Bushee, Bill Dimas, Chris Rivera and Rebecca Wurzburger; former Santa Fe County manager Roman “Tiger” Abeyta, neighborhood activist Margaret Josina Campos, former state Democratic Party chairman and former Santa Fe County Commissioner Javier Gonzales; and Motel 6 night auditor Michael D’Anna. D’Anna left before picking up a packet from the clerk, but said he intended to stop by later this week. Another 11 are aiming for the City Council: The four candidates in north-side District 1 are: Planning Commissioner Signe I. Lindell, semiretired stockbroker Michael J. Segura, 2012 council candidate Houston J. Johansen and incumbent Chris Calvert. In District 2 on the southeast side, the candidates so far are: gallery owner Mary Louise Bonney,

neighborhood activist Peter Bill Komis, former Española mayor Joseph M. Maestas and landscaper Joe H. Arellano. Environmentalist activist Jeff E. Green did not pick up a packet, but told the clerk he needed to resolve some issues before deciding whether to run. There was one candidate in the south-side District 3: Incumbent Ronald S. Trujillo. And one person so far is running in the southwest-side District 4: Incumbent Carmichael A. Dominguez.

Nineteen hopefuls throw hats in ring for 2014 mayoral, council elections

The candidate packets include nominating petitions and forms related to public campaign financing. Candidates can continue to collect signatures on nominating petitions between Sept. 3 and Nov. 2. To qualify for the ballot, mayoral candidates must gather about 265 signatures. It takes 84 signatures to qualify for District 1, 72 for District 2, 41 for District 3 and 67 for District 4. For the next six months, candidates will be asking for signatures on nominating petitions. Each registered voter may sign only one petition for mayor and one for city councilor in the district in which they are registered. If you sign more than one petition for one position, your signatures will be discounted. Candidates are also seeking money from individual voters — either $5 to qualify for public campaign financing (you may contribute $5 to as many candidates as you wish) or more for a campaign contribution if they choose the private financing route. Those seeking to qualify for public campaign financing have until Nov. 18 to collect qualifying contributions. Declarations for candidacy must be filed by Dec. 3.

Los Alamos County Clerk Sharon Stover is fighting a court order requiring her to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, and said she won’t immediately change her policy of denying such marriage licenses. Stover is to appear in state District Court Wednesday. She’s asking Judge Sheri Raphaelson to put a gay marriage lawsuit on hold until the issue is resolved by the state Supreme Court in another case. A same-sex couple from Los Alamos County, Janet Newton and Maria Thibodeau, filed a lawsuit last week after being denied a marriage license. Raphaelson ordered the clerk to issue the couple a marriage license or appear in court to explain why that shouldn’t happen. Stover said in a statement she denied the license based on “actual language” in state law. State statutes contain references to “husband” and “wife,” and include a marriage license application that has sections for male and female applicants. County clerks historically have relied on those provisions in denying marriage licenses to same-sex couples. However, state law doesn’t explicitly authorize or prohibit samesex couples to be married. “I respect and value the rights of each person to be treated as equally and fairly as our Constitution states,” Stover said. “Clearly, the marriage license in state statute has not been updated since 1961. It does not work for same-sex couples, and that is a matter for the Legislature to fix, not a clerk and not a district judge.” Stover said she hoped the state Supreme Court would soon clarify the law. She has joined with other county clerks in planning to appeal a ruling last week by a judge in Albuquerque, who declared that prohibiting gay marriage in New Mexico is unconstitutional. The judge’s ruling doesn’t apply to all of New Mexico’s 33 counties. In a written response to Raphaelson’s order, Los Alamos County Attorney Rebecca Ehler told the judge that the Bernalillo County case was moving faster and should provide a “statewide definitive pronouncement” on the legality of gay marriage. Piecemeal litigation poses a risk of contradictory rulings on the same questions of law, she said. Meanwhile, the legal fight over gay marriage in the state broadened Tuesday as Grant County became the seventh county to announce plans to start issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Grant County Clerk Robert Zamarripa said his office will comply with a judge’s ruling issued Tuesday and will begin providing the licenses next week. “We’ll let the Legislature and courts decide after this what needs to be done,” Zamarripa said in a telephone interview.

A larger bear, possibly a male, was seen in the area of St. Francis Drive and Alta Vista Street around 10 a.m. Tuesday, according to the statement. Students at Nava Elementary School on Siringo Road were unable to play outside Tuesday morning due to a bear spotting in the area. Bear sightings are common this time of year, but city animal control officers said about 10 different bears have been spotted in the city over the past two weeks, which is a slight increase from the same time last year, according to a statement from Westervelt.

Police and state Game and Fish agents cornered a different mother bear (who weighed about 200 pounds) and her approximately 40-pound cub in the 600 block of Palace Avenue on Aug. 29. Both were tranquilized and relocated. A 300-pound bear found roaming Delgado Street on Sunday also was tranquilized and relocated, according to the statement. Police are asking residents to bring pet food — including hummingbird feeders — and trash cans indoors to discourage bears from entering neigh-

borhoods “at least until the sightings stop.” Small pets should also remain inside as a precaution. The department offered the following advice on how to respond if you encounter a bear: Back away slowly and avoid eye contact. If the bear starts to charge, make yourself look as big as possible, yell and wave your arms above your head. If the bear attacks, try to lie on your stomach, as flat as possible, covering your neck and head with your hands. Anyone who sees a bear inside city limits is asked to call police at 428-3710.

Rosemont Realty gets new CEO; Burrell to start new business Burrell said he will stay in New Mexico and would discuss his new venture, which came ‘suddenly,’ at the end of the month.

By Bruce Krasnow The New Mexican

Rosemont Realty, the Santa Fe based commercial real-estate firm with 173 office buildings in 25 states, has named a new chief executive officer. Michael Mahony, a company executive who moved to Santa Fe with Daniel Burrell when Rosemont was launched, takes over from Burrell, who is leaving to pursue other business interests in New Mexico. Rosemont now has eight regional offices and manages 18 million square feet of office space valued at $1.8 billion. It is the largest commercial property owner in Albuquerque. The firm was formed when Burrell and his private equity partners purchased BGK Properties, a property firm that was started by Eddie Gilbert. Burrell told The New Mexican that he came to New Mexico in 2009 for a

Gilbert came to Santa Fe when he was in his mid-60s to rebuild his life and business and was in his mid-80s when he met Burrell and was looking for a partnership.

Burrell raised some $575 million to expand the firm this year and pledged $750,000 of his own money to start a college-training and leadership program aimed at New Mexico highschool juniors who would receive mentoring and scholarship money to attend The University of New Mexico and New Mexico State University. Burrell said he will continue to support the college initiative, called the Rosemont Leadership Institute, at his

But the overall probability for that is really going down.” Adams was raised near Coarse Gold, Calif., and served in the U.S. Navy before going to work as a firefighter in the Bass Lake Ranger District of the Sierra National Forest in California. He was also a member of the Kings River Hotshots in California. According to Takai, Adams moved with his wife — who is pregnant — and son to Jemez Springs about a year ago.

Martinez, Heinrich on opposite sides on transmission line issue The Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE — Gov. Susana Martinez and U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich are on opposite sides when it comes to the placement of the SunZia transmission project in Southern New Mexico, an issue with implications for the military, the environment and the economy. At issue is whether the proposed 500-mile power line to south-central Arizona would cross the White Sands Missile Range, which Martinez said would jeopardize the long-term future of White Sands and of nearby Holloman Air Force Base. The Defense Department has said routing SunZia across the range would interfere with lowflying military aircraft while creating difficulties when shooting down missiles during tests. Martinez urged the Bureau of Land Management in an Aug. 16 letter to route SunZia around White Sands, The Albuquerque Journal reported. Project backers have said doing that would lead to years of delay for a new environmental study, and Heinrich said in an Aug. 19 letter to the BLM that that adoption of the military’s position against routing the line through White

Sands could kill SunZia and hinder private investment in transmission development. Both sides argue that jobs are at stake. Dave Goodman, planning and environmental coordinator for the BLM in New Mexico, said the agency hopes to make a decision by late September or early October. “We’ll consider any new information we get before that decision is made,” he said. SunZia representatives say the Department of Defense’s proposal to bury the line is technically unfeasible and cost prohibitive. Rep. Steve Pearce, R-N.M., also supports the Defense Department’s stance on SunZia, while Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., wants the sides to compromise. SunZia spokesman Ian Calkins said project leaders are willing to implement other mitigation measures, such as adjusting the height of transmission structures and modifying tower spans. According to SunZia, the $1.2 billion project would “enable the development of renewable energy resources including wind, solar, and geothermal generation by creating access to the interstate power grid in the Southwest.”

new business. With ties to Georgetown University and Yale, Burrell worked on the domestic policy team for President Bill Clinton and was a senior strategist in the presidential campaign of U.S. Sen. John Kerry. Burrell said he will stay in New Mexico and would discuss his new venture at the end of the month. “It’s a business opportunity here in the state that came about suddenly. It’s not a move that I planned. It’s so unique and unusual that I needed to jump,” he said Tuesday. Burrell’s wife, Katherine Jetter, is an internationally known gemologist and jewelry designer. “Together we flew 520,000 miles last year,” he said. His new job will mean more travel within New Mexico and less out of state. Burrell remains a shareholder in Rosemont and will become a member of the board, but the ownership of the firm does not change.

“Nobody is being bought out, I’m just stepping out of my day-to-day role,” he said. Mahony, 40, began his career at the real estate private equity group Lazard Frères in New York, focusing on the ongoing asset management, where he participated in the realization of over $2 billion of fund assets, including both public and private REITs (real estate investment trusts) and real estate operating and management companies, according to a company statement. Prior to joining Rosemont Realty, Mahony was a director of Rosemont Capital, L.P. Mahony received his bachelor of arts degrees in economics and in history from Yale University and a master’s degree in international finance from the London School of Economics.

‘Reporter’ sues Gov. Martinez for open records laws violations By Steve Terrell The New Mexican

The weekly Santa Fe Reporter on Tuesday sued Gov. Susana Martinez, claiming violations of the state’s open records laws. The suit, filed in state district court in Santa Fe, also accused the governor — who campaigned for office promising transparency — of withholding public information as a means retaliation for negative stories. Editor Julie Ann Grimm said in a news release, “We’ve filed this case because the Office of the Governor has repeatedly

failed to comply with the state law. We can’t just sit back and wait to see what happens next.” The suit cites seven instances, dating back to late 2011, in which Martinez’s office failed to produce various documents sought by the paper. “Instead of providing her perspective on important issues, Martinez refused to respond to inquiries from the Santa Fe Reporter because she didn’t like the tone of the newspaper’s coverage, an unlawful act called ‘viewpoint discrimination’ or ‘prior restraint,’ ” the news release said.

In brief Atalaya task force formed Santa Fe Public Schools has created a 12-member task force to help resolve issues raised by neighbors about reconstruction of Atalaya Elementary School. Neighbors say they are concerned about noise, lack of communication between the district and the east-side neighborhood and a proposed 33-foot tall gymnasium. The district is rebuilding the 1971 school with $13.5 million in general obligation bond money and intends to reopen it in the fall of 2014 with a projected student enrollment of about 225 students. A community meeting on the project was held last week and another is planned for Sept. 12. During a board of education meeting Tuesday night Steve Carrillo made it clear the district does not intend to make the K-6 school into a K-8, as some neighbors have suggested. At the meeting, at least one Atalaya neighbor told the board the district might have to reconsider its plans for the gym, but several parents countered that their children deserve a proper gym. According to the district, major changes to the construction plans could cost another $1 million.

Diocese of Gallup to file for Chapter 11 reorganization GALLUP — The Diocese of Gallup says it will petition for Chapter 11 reorganization in federal bankruptcy court because of mounting clergy sex abuse legal claims. The Gallup Independent reported that Bishop James Wall made the announcement in a letter that was read in parishes during Mass over the Labor Day weekend. The diocese includes parishes in six counties in New Mexico, three counties in Arizona and

Martinez spokesman Enrique Knell said Tuesday, “It’s not a surprise that a left-wing weekly tabloid that published stolen emails containing the governor’s personal underwear order would file a baseless suit like this. Their public records requests are treated the same as every other citizen in New Mexico.” The lawsuit asks that the governor be ordered to implement a system for adequately responding to public records requests. The suit also asks attorneys’ fees and fines.

seven American Indian reservations. The Gallup Diocese will become the ninth U.S. Roman Catholic diocese or archdiocese to seek bankruptcy protection since the clergy abuse scandal erupted in 2002. Two Catholic religious orders have also done so. The other diocese or archdiocese to file for Chapter 11 are in Milwaukee; San Diego; Davenport, Iowa; Fairbanks, Alaska; Portland, Ore.; Spokane, Wash.; Tucson, Ariz.; and Wilmington, Del.

BLM to limit drilling leases near historic Chaco park FARMINGTON — Federal land managers have proposed limiting the number of parcels to be leased for oil and natural gas development near the Chaco Culture National Historical Park in northwestern New Mexico. The Bureau of Land Management on Tuesday released its environmental assessment for the lease sale that will take place in January. The agency has called for cutting the number of available parcels to just four. The industry initially nominated 38 parcels totaling more than 19,000 acres. One of those was less than a quarter-mile from the park’s boundary. The Hopi Tribe in Arizona and others had criticized the idea of drilling near the park, which includes a series of monumental stone structures that date back centuries. The area was considered a ceremonial and economic center for the ancestors of many Native American tribes in the region. Critics were concerned development could harm archaeological and environmental resources at the World Heritage site. BLM officials said they consulted with tribes before issuing their proposal and that the proximity of the parcels to Chaco was one of the considerations. The parcels that will be up for lease are several miles from the park and adjacent to existing oil and gas operations.

TASTE Granita: A frosty treat for fall’s heat By Russ Parsons Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — This has been the most temperate summer I can remember. But while we sit outside luxuriating in these cool evenings, I think we all know that our real summer is lurking right around the corner. September and October can be the hottest months of the year in Southern California. The kind of blistering, soul-deadening heat in which you can work up a sweat just sitting around watching television. When it’s that hot, the only thing you can think about eating is a bowl of ice cream. But who has the energy to go find all the equipment buried in the pantry? Plus, you forgot to put the ice cream maker bowl in the freezer. Plus, are you really going to stand over the stove cooking a custard base? Really? Cool down. Do you have a metal baking pan? How about a fork? That’s all the equipment you need to make granita, the chillest treat you’ll ever find. Granita is a coarse Italian ice,

Mexican street corn turned into salad By Elizabeth Karmel The Associated Press

The first time I saw Mexican street corn was just after I had moved to Chicago. I was meandering down Wells Street, which was closed for a summer art fair. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a guy with a tower of grilled corn. I walked over to get a better look inside and watched u Recipe for grilled as he took a Mexican sweet corn piece of the salad. Page d-2 corn off the grill, rolled back the husk and quickly tied it off, forming a handle from the husks. His movements were fluid as he next dipped the exposed corn into butter, then slathered it with mayo, rolled it in cheese, sprinkled it with ground chilies and squirted it with lime juice. I was mesmerized. I couldn’t wait to take that first bite. It ended up being a pivotal food experience for me. I’ve been making it at home ever since. When corn is fresh from the field, I soak it and grill it right in the husk. The delicate sweet corn takes only a few minutes to cook, and I love


ts seeds and pollen have been found in archaeological deposits dating back to 8000 B.C. Roman author and naturalist Pliny the Elder recommended wearing it to expel evil. Hippocrates of Kos, the Greek physician known as the father of modern medicine, considered it an important medicinal herb. Martha Washington, mother of our country, pickled it. Henry David Thoreau found it in a cornfield at Walden Pond, boiled it and pronounced it a “satisfactory dinner.” Michael Pollan, author of the Omnivore’s Dilemma, called it one of the two “most nutritious plants in the world.” And the USDA has classified it as a weed — one of the worst kind. Is purslane — the plant in question — a noxious weed or an unsung superfood? The answer largely depends on whom you ask. When Kristen Davenport moved her Boxcar Farm from Chamisal to Llano, N.M., seven years ago, she was happy to discover purslane growing in a section of her fields. “I’ve always loved to eat purslane as a vegetable,” she said, “and I had been worried that it wouldn’t be growing at this higher elevation.” She was so happy to see it, she let it go to seed. “I now have something of a purslane problem,” she said. “It seems to come up in a different place every year, and this year, it came up in a huge patch of spinach. When we started watering for the spinach, the purslane came up and the spinach did not.” Ironically, she added, “there’s nothing we grow

here on our organic farm that can even come close to comparing to purslane’s nutritional value.” Although it is a traditional food deliberately cultivated in Europe, India, China, the Middle East and Mexico, many U.S. farmers and backyard gardeners regard purslane, found in all 50 states, more of a curse than a gift from Mother Nature. A succulent that evolved in hot, dry environments, purslane (Portulaca oleracea) produces paddle-shaped green leaves and stems that range from pale pink to a deeper red as the plants mature, as well as tiny yellow flowers and even tinier black seeds that can remain viable in soil for 30 to 40 years — which may explain why it is so abundant in Northern New Mexico this year, when the monsoon rains returned after several years’ absence and brought those seeds to life. Once you know what to look for, you’ll spot purslane everywhere — in empty fields and city lots and parks, along sidewalks and driveways, filling the gaps between patio pavers. What many of its detractors don’t realize is that purslane is as rich in vitamins and minerals as it is prolific.

A nutritional powerhouse When Elie Zouein, a young Lebanese physician, arrived in Providence, R.I., for some advanced training a few years ago, he was delighted to find purslane growing in his backyard — and quickly turned it into fattoush, one of his favorite salads. He spotted it again when he was doing a residency in Staten Island, N.Y., pushing up through cracks in the sidewalk. To Zouein, the plant is not only delicious, and something he was accustomed to eating regularly, it’s also a nutritional powerhouse. “One hundred grams of fresh purslane leaves provides about

350 mg of alpha-linolenic acid,” he wrote in an email. “And consumption of foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke. “It’s an excellent source of vitamin A, a powerful natural antioxidant, and very rich in vitamins C and E, iron and magnesium, and some B-complex vitamins like riboflavin and niacin, pyridoxine and carotenoids. Also present in purslane are two types of betalain alkaloid pigments, both potent antioxidants.” Comparing the weed to several plants widely labeled “superfoods,” Zouein concluded that “purslane kicks nutritional booty,” with more vitamin C per serving than cabbage, more vitamin A than beets, more iron and calcium than Swiss chard or frozen blueberries, and more beta-carotene than carrots.

A local tradition John Gage, who grows organic heirloom varieties of fruits and vegetables for the Santa Fe Farmers Market at his Singing River Farm near Nambé, not only harvests wild purslane, he’s also planted a larger-leafed European variety this year — and brings them both to the Saturday market. He sells a lot of purslane to vegetarians and vegans who prefer not to get their omega-3s from fish oil, he said. “They use it to flavor mashed potatoes, to add some crunch and green to potato salad, even to make purslane pesto.” Gage, a native Santa Fean who returned to town and took up farming after spending years behind a desk in the Greater Bay Area, loves to eat and talk about purslane. But even more, he loves what the weed represents.

Purslane, a succulent that evolved in hot, dry places, produces paddleshaped green leaves, as well as tiny yellow flowers and even tinier black seeds. These weeds grow almost anywhere, and they actually pack quite a nutritional punch.

Going bananas for a sweet and savory sauce By J.M. Hirsch

The Associated Press

Most of us have a pretty limited banana repertoire. We eat them straight up, baked into quick breads, puréed into smoothies or sliced into either fruit salad or some sort of breakfast food. That’s about it. But a friend recently — if unknowingly — introduced me to the savory side of bananas, and I was completely smitten. Sassy Latina chef Daisy Martinez loves working big, bold flavors into easy dishes. That’s my style of cooking. So when she recently launched a great new Web video series, I was eager to watch the first episode — a breezy walk through her take on fried chicken. I’m sure the chicken is delicious, but it was one offhand comment about a condiment that really caught my attention. Banana ketchup. Sounds odd, yes. But I’ll confess that I consider ketchup to be a major food group unto itself. And I simply had to try Daisy’s recipe. Turns out it is easy to make and delivers an amazing sweet and tangy punch that blew me away. Think of it as the Hispanic equivalent of Asian sweetand-sour sauce. It totally works.

Chicken kebabs with chili banana sauce. MATTHEW MEAD/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

I’ve now used this sauce on chicken in several ways. The easiest is to simply cut up boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sauté them with olive oil and onion, then dump in the sauce and just bring to a sim-

mer. Serve this on tortillas, in buns, over rice or just straight up. But since grilling season still is going strong, I decided to create a recipe suitable for chicken on the grill.

CHICKEN KEBABS WITH CHILE-BANANA SAUCE I like to briefly brine my chicken breasts when cooking them kebab-style. It adds flavor and keeps them from drying out. Total time: 45 minutes (15 minutes active) Makes four servings 1/2 cup water 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1 teaspoon smoked paprika 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 11/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 3), cut into 1-inch chunks 11/2 bananas 1/2 cup ketchup 1 to 2 whole fresh jalapeños (for less heat, split them open and remove the seeds and ribs) 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar or cider vinegar Preparation: In a large zipclose plastic bag, combine the water, salt, paprika and pepper.

Close the bag and shake, then add the chicken. Seal the bag, then turn to coat the chicken. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. If using wooden skewers for the kebabs, soak them in water while the chicken brines. Meanwhile, in a blender or food processor, combine the bananas, ketchup, jalapeños and vinegar. Purée until very smooth. Set aside. When ready to cook, heat the grill to medium-high. Use an oil-soaked paper towel held with tongs to oil the grill grates. Remove the chicken from the brine, then thread the pieces onto 4 skewers. Grill, turning regularly, until cooked through, about 12 minutes total. Using a basting brush, lightly coat the kebabs on all sides with chilebanana sauce, then grill for another minute. Transfer the kebabs to serving plates, then drizzle each with additional sauce.

GRILLED MEXICAN STREET CORN SALAD Total time: 45 minutes makes four servings 6 large ears of corn (3 with husks and silks removed, all 6 soaked in water for 10 minutes) 1 tablespoon olive oil 4 tablespoons sweet butter, melted 1/2 cup (slightly heaped) Hellmann’s mayonnaise 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, plus sprigs to serve Zest and juice of 1 lime 2 cloves garlic, finely grated 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder Maldon or other flaked sea salt 1/2 cup queso anejo 1/2 cup grated Asiago cheese (or a grated Italian cheese blend), plus extra to garnish 6 slices apple wood smoked bacon, cooked and crumbled Ground black pepper Preparation: Heat the grill for medium-high direct heat cooking. Remove the corn from the water and pat dry. Brush the 3 ears of husked corn on all sides with the olive oil. Leave the other ears of corn

in their husks. Place all of the corn on the cooking grate. Grill, turning occasionally, until the husked corn is well-browned and charred in places, about 10 minutes. The other ears of corn will steam in their husks, but the husks themselves will be dried out and charred in places. Remove all of the corn from the grill and set aside until cool, about 5 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, remove the husks and silk from the 3 ears that were grilled with them on. One at a time, stand each ear on its wide end and use a serrated knife to saw down the length of the cob to remove the kernels. Discard the cobs, then transfer the kernels to a large bowl. Mix in the melted butter. In a medium bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, cilantro, lime zest and juice, garlic, chile powder and a pinch of salt. Stir in both cheeses and most of the bacon, reserving a little for garnish. Add the dressing to the buttered corn kernels and mix. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Garnish with grated cheese, cilantro and the reserved bacon. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

For the dressing: Juice of 1 to 2 lemons 1/2 teaspoon ground sumac (more for garnish) 1/3 cup olive oil Splash of grenadine syrup (optional) Sea salt, to taste For the salad: 1-2 cups washed purslane, spun dried and chopped if leaves and stems are small and tender (use only leaves only if stems are large and thick) Large handful fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped Small handful fresh thyme leaves Small handful fresh parsley leaves, roughly chopped 2 to 4 radishes, chopped 1 cup chopped scallions, white and green parts (optional) 1 large or 2 smaller cucumbers, peeled,

seeded and sliced into half- or quarter-moons 2 to 4 tomatoes, cut into wedges 1/2 to 1 whole green bell pepper, seeded and chopped (optional) Few handfuls lettuce or arugula, torn into bitesized pieces (optional) 1 to 2 pita breads, toasted and torn into bite-sized pieces Preparation: Make the dressing by combining the lemon juice and sumac in a small bowl, then whisk in the olive oil. Check for balance between the juice and oil, season to taste with salt and splash of grenadine (if using) and set aside. Combine all remaining ingredients except pita in a large bowl. Spoon on some dressing and toss well. Add the pita, more dressing if needed, and toss again. Sprinkle with additional sumac and serve.

These weeds, called purslane, grow almost anywhere and are actually edible. JANE PHILLIPS/THE NEW MEXICAN

Granita: Icy treats best served same day Continued from Page D-1 intentionally made to have large crystals and a slightly slushy texture. You can think of it either as sorbet’s country cousin or as an extremely dignified snow cone. Here’s how you make it: Puree fruit or use another liquid. Stir in either sugar or simple syrup. Pour the mixture into a metal baking pan and stick it in the freezer. After an hour, give it a good stir with a fork. Then stir it again every 30 to 45 minutes thereafter. When the slushy ice crystals have frozen enough that they stick together without any visible liquid remaining, the granita is done. That’s all there is to it. As you can tell, the method is almost infinitely flexible. You can make granitas with flavors as diverse as peaches and coffee. The basic technique is exactly the same, with a few wrinkles. For example, you’ll probably want to strain a fruit like peaches (or maybe not — the extra pulp will just make the granita creamier). You’ll almost certainly want to add more sugar to coffee (since it’s not nearly as naturally sweet as peaches). You can sweeten granitas either with sugar or with a simple syrup (which is especially handy for making granitas from firm ingredients). Simple syrup is made by boiling water and sugar — equal amounts is standard. Generally, you’ll want between ½ and

1¼ cups of sugar for every 4 cups of liquid. Because cold mutes flavor, you’ll want the raw mix to be slightly sweeter than you might think. Not overwhelmingly sweet, of course — and remember that sugar lowers the freezing point of liquid, so too much will mean that your granita never gets past the slushy stage. Once you master that, there’s plenty of room to play. Even better, making granita is remarkably fail-safe. Because you’re not worried about getting the perfect final texture (you want it to be icy and slushy), if you don’t get the recipe exactly right the first time, the result will still be presentable. I made two granitas recently. The simplest is coffee. Brew a strong pot, add a sugar syrup flavored with cinnamon (sweeter than normal because coffee is so bitter) and freeze. It’s good just as it is, but a little whipped cream on top would not be out of place. The other is based on watermelon, which, when you think about it, is almost a granita by itself. Puree cubed fruit in the food processor and strain it into a bowl to remove the pulp, stir in sugar, lime juice and chopped mint. Freeze. These ices are best served on the day they are made. They tend to freeze solid when left overnight. If you let them go into a single block of ice, it can be rescued by chopping it into smaller bits and then coarsely pureeing it in the food processor, but the texture will be lighter and

finer, and you’ll lose some of the power of the flavor. On the other hand, it’ll still be plenty cold, and sometimes that’s good enough. WATERMELON GRANITA WITH LIME AND MINT Total time: 10 minutes, plus freezing time makes six to eight servings 6 to 7 pounds watermelon 1/2 cup sugar 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from about 2 limes) 2 tablespoons finely chopped mint Preparation: Peel the watermelon and cut it into cubes. Coarsely purée in a food processor and strain through a strainer, pressing lightly to get all the juice. You will need about 4 cups of juice. Stir in the sugar, lime juice and mint, and whisk until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute. Pour into a 12- by 9-inch metal baking pan and place in the freezer. After about 1 hour, stir with a fork to break up the ice crystals. Repeat four or five times over 2 to 3 hours. Each time, the ice will be a little less liquid and will stick together more. When it is firm enough to hold a shape, it is done. Try not to let the mixture freeze solid. If it does, chop it into small pieces in the pan and grind it in the food processor. (The result will be lighter and fluffier, and the flavor will not be as dense and luscious.) This makes about 6 cups of granita.
