Solo on strings at 12 By Anne Constable The New Mexican


ome day Phoenix Avalon, a violin prodigy, hopes to perform on the stage at Carnegie Hall in New York. But on Sunday, Santa Feans can see him perform, from memory, Johannes Brahms’ “Sonatensatz,” a piece written when the German composer was only 20. Sunday’s soloist, performing at the United Church of Santa Fe, is just 12. Joe Illick, artistic director of the Santa Fe Concert Association, says Phoenix

“is one of those kids who could go all the way.” And in classical music, that might mean Carnegie Hall. Phoenix is playing in the inaugural concert of a new, six-part series presented by the concert association at various venues in Santa Fe. The idea behind the series is to bring classical music to families with children through one-hour, child- and familyfriendly concerts. Illick will serve as narrator, pianist and conductor. Sunday’s concert features music by Bach and Corelli as well as Brahms. It also includes the premiere of March and Fugue by Ezra Shcolnik of Santa Fe,

Districts get more say in graduation guidelines State’s decision to allow more flexibility will only apply to current seniors

Thousands of high school students who fear they may not graduate because they haven’t met all the requirements can breathe easier after a decision Thursday that allows local school districts some flexibility for at least another year. After recent confusion arose over state legislation on graduation requirements, the

Public Education Department announced during a meeting of the Legislative Education Study Committee that it will allow school districts to develop their own guidelines — at least for this year’s seniors. Some superintendents testified before the committee that the Public Education Department continues to alter graduation requirements, putting thousands of seniors in danger of failing to graduate on time. But department officials told the committee they have merely been clarifying a 2008 law that requires all high school graduates to earn 24.5 credits, pass all core courses and demonstrate competency in five key subjects, including reading, writing and math.

That legislation clearly states that students must work with advisers to plan a four-year course of study, meet all course requirements and pass such exams as the state’s Standards Based Assessment. But it also lays out a long and somewhat complex list of alternative requirements. For instance, students could qualify for graduation by using “workforce readiness” assessments, by demonstrating community service, or by working at internships and after-school jobs. It was the minutiae — for instance, whether a marching band credit could serve as a physical education requirement

WASHINGTON — His personal and political credibility on the line, President Barack Obama reversed course Thursday and said millions of Americans should be allowed to renew individual coverage plans now ticketed for cancellation under the health care law that is likely to be at the heart of the 2014 elections. The immediate impact on consumers was unclear, though both industry spokesmen and state insurance commissioners swiftly warned that higher prices could result from the president’s rapid turnaround. Under pressure from consumers as well as congressional Democrats, Obama said the administration no longer would require insurance companies to jettison current individual and small group plans that fall short of the minimum coverage standards under the law, effectively shifting responsibility for cancellations to the industry itself. The change would be good for just one year, though senior administration officials said it could be extended if problems persist. Speaking of the millions of people whose coverage is being scrapped, Obama said, “What we want to do is to be able to say to these folks, you know what, the Affordable Care Act is not going to be the reason why

In brief

BOSTON — Former Boston crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger was led off to prison Thursday to begin serving a life sentence at 84 for his murderous reign in the 1970s and ’80s, accepting his punishment in stone-faced silence even as a judge castigated him for his “almost unfathomable” depravity. Bulger’s sentencing brought to a close a sordid case that exposed FBI complicity in his crimes and left a trail of devastated families whose loved ones were killed by Bulger or his henchmen. When U.S. District Judge Denise Casper announced the punishment and Bulger was led from the courtroom, the families were silent.

NEW YORK — For years, scientists have been dogged by this evolution question: Just where did man’s best friend first appear? The earliest known doglike fossils come from Europe. But DNA studies have implicated east Asia and the Middle East. Now a large DNA study is lining up with the fossils, suggesting dogs originated in Europe some 19,000 to 32,000 years ago. Scientists generally agree that dogs emerged from wolves to become the first domesticated animal. The latest attempt to figure out where this happened was published online Thursday by the journal Science.

Pilot says passenger fell into ocean MIAMI — Rescue crews searched an area southeast of Miami on Thursday after a pilot reported to the Federal Aviation Administration that a passenger fell out of his small plane into the ocean. FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says the call came from the pilot of a Piper PA 46 aircraft. The plane was flying at about 2,000 feet when the call came in, she said. The search for the passenger by Miami-Dade police, fire rescue and the U.S. Coast Guard ended Thursday night without success. Rescuers presume the passenger is dead.

Art claims face legal hurdles Aware of Nazi past, Germany wants to help By Frank Jordans

The Associated Press

BERLIN hen German tax authorities entered the home of a recluse collector and found a trove of art that could include works stolen by the Nazis, they stepped into a legal quagmire — one that may end up being resolved by politics as much as the law. For a year and a half, prosecutors kept their find quiet, hoping to trace the history of some 1,406 pieces by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Marc Chagall before going public. But since news of the case broke last week, officials have been scrambling to justify their secrecy and explain why Germany can’t just hand the pictures back to the heirs. At times German authorities have appeared to be working at cross purposes as they try to balance judicial independence with public relations. Ironically, it may be the strong protection of individual rights introduced after World War II that may support the legal argument that collector Cornelius Gurlitt should keep the works he inherited from his father Hildebrand, an art dealer who traded in works confiscated by the Nazis. “His father did bad things during the Nazi period, but under our legal system you can’t punish the son for that,” said Matthias Druba, a Berlin lawyer who has dealt with other art restitution cases. Authorities are investigating whether the paintings, prints and

drawings were “misappropriated.” But a spokesman for Augsburg prosecutors, who are handling the case, acknowledged that Germany’s 30-year statute of limitations for most criminal prosecutions could make a legal pursuit of the art difficult. “I never said we will give back the pictures to all those who suffered injustice back then,” prosecutor Matthias Nikolai said. Experts say the government’s best option could be to appeal to Gurlitt’s sense of ethics and negotiate resolutions about the art instead of heading to court. There’s some precedent for that. Two years ago, Gurlitt sold a work by German expressionist painter Max Beckmann titled The Lion Tamer for $1.16 million, which he shared with the heirs of a Jewish collector who once owned the picture. “It was all a matter of goodwill,” said Karl-Sax Feddersen, a legal adviser for the Cologne auction house Lempertz. “The heirs wouldn’t have been able to get a German court to help them.” The elder Gurlitt, who died in 1956, was one of four art dealers commissioned by the Nazis to sell what is known as “degenerate art” — items seized from museums because they were deemed a corrupting influence on the German people. Prosecutors believe some 380 of the works found in his son’s apartment were “degenerate art.” But 590 artworks may have been looted by the Nazis, they say. The German government is keen to help the claimants, aware that doing otherwise would be a public relations disaster for a country trying to make amends for its Nazi past. Government spokesman Stef-

fen Seibert said Wednesday that authorities were using “all the available expertise at their disposal” to determine if there were legitimate claims to the works. Germany has signed up to the 1998 Washington Principles requiring Nazi-looted art to be handed back to its rightful owners. But this has been applied mostly to works held by the state or in state-owned museums. Still, German lawyer and art expert Peter Raue said the fact that the Gurlitt collection is now in public hands — albeit as part of an investigation — could compel Germany to act. Any outright seizure by the state — even with the best intentions — could be challenged by Gurlitt, Raue said. “We’re entering uncharted legal territory,” he said. Gurlitt, believed to be about 80, has remained coy about his intentions. Germany’s Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper quoted him as saying Tuesday: “I can’t say anything, I know nothing. I’ve given all my documents to the prosecutors.” Augsburg prosecutors have appealed for more time to investigate the massive case. So far, Gurlitt appears to have made no effort to reclaim the works. Several families have already come forward to stake their claims to works in Gurlitt’s collection. Among them are the heirs of Paris art dealer Paul Rosenberg, who once owned Matisse’s Woman Sitting in an Armchair, according to Chris Marinello, a lawyer for the family.

NEW YORK — McDonald’s wants to be a bigger player in the global coffee business. The world’s biggest hamburger chain on Thursday highlighted beverages as one of its key growth opportunities at a daylong presentation for investors. McDonald’s CEO Don Thompson noted that coffee is one of the fastest growing categories in its global drinks business and said that the company has less than its “fair share” of the market. When asked to identify competitors in the space, Thompson chose to keep the discussion broad. “Anyone that stops off to get a cup of coffee anywhere, that’s an opportunity,” Thompson said. The push comes as Starbucks Corp. is enjoying strong sales growth even in the choppy economy. In the latest quarter, the Seattle-based chain said global sales rose 7 percent at locations open at least a year. At McDonald’s, the figure edged up 0.9 percent. As for the coffee servings sold in the U.S. restaurant industry, McDonald’s currently has less than 13 percent of the market, said Kevin Newell, the company’s chief brand and strategy officer for the region. Still, he noted McDonald’s coffee sales have surged 70 percent since the introduction of McCafe specialty coffees in 2009. A big part of the attraction of McDonald’s coffee is value; many locations in the U.S. offer a regular drip coffee of any size for $1. But McDonald’s wants to get people to buy pricier drinks, too. This fall, the company introduced a pumpkin spice latte following the popularity of similar drinks at Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts. And next week, McDonald’s plans to launch a white chocolate mocha flavored latte. The company, based in Oak Brook, Ill., also recently said it’s partnering with Kraft Foods Group Inc. to sell McCafe bagged coffee at supermarkets in test markets. The company is hoping the move will help build awareness of the MCafe brand. “It’s about selling more coffee in restaurants,” Newell said of the Kraft partnership. It’s not clear what impact the push by McDonald’s will have on Starbucks. Richard Adams, who runs a consulting firm for McDonald’s franchisees, notes that the chain sells plenty of drip coffee and blended ice frappes in the summer but has struggled to sell espresso-based beverages such as lattes. Overseas, McDonald’s also has about 4,200 separate McCafes that are either sectioned off from the main restaurant or stand-alone locations. McDonald’s says it plans to add another 350 to 400 such McCafe locations next year.

Yellen stands up for Fed policies

House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., left, and Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., arrive at a Congressional Budget Conference on Capitol Hill on Wednesday. In the aftermath of last month’s partial government shutdown, House and Senate negotiators are trying to reach a budget agreement.

By Ylan Q. Mui

The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve has taken meaningful steps to strengthen its scrutiny of the nation’s financial system and prevent another economic crisis, the White House’s nominee to lead the central bank said Thursday. Janet Yellen appeared before the Senate Banking Committee Janet Yellen Thursday for a hearing on her confirmation. Many of lawmakers’ questions focused on what the Fed has done to shore up the banking sector and its progress in crafting new regulations required under sweeping reforms passed by Congress three years ago. They also challenged Yellen to address ways to limit the dominance of the nation’s largest financial institutions that have been dubbed “too big to fail.” Addressing that issue “has to be among the most important goals of the post-crisis period,” she said during the hearing. “Too-big-to-fail is damaging, it creates moral hazard, it corrodes market discipline, it creates a threat to financial stability, and it does — unfairly, in my view — advantage large banking firms over small ones.” A committee vote on Yellen’s nomination could come as early as next week, according to an congressional aide. She is almost certain to be approved and head to the full Senate for consideration. However, at least one Republican senator on the committee, David Vitter of Louisiana, said Thursday that he will oppose her confirmation. “Unfortunately, none of her answers were reassuring to me,” Vitter said on Fox Business Network. “I am very concerned about just the free-money policy with essentially no end in sight.” President Barack Obama nominated Yellen for the top job at the Fed last month after facing backlash from his own party — and several key Republicans — over his first choice for the position, former U.S. Treasury Secretary Larry Summers. Nearly two dozen Democrats signed a letter over the summer supporting Yellen for the job instead. “Dr. Yellen has proved through her extensive and impressive record in public service and academia that she is most qualified to be the next chair of the Federal Reserve,” committee Chairman Sen. Tim Johnson, D-S.D., said Friday. Yellen, who currently holds the No. 2 position at the Fed, has been credited with sounding early alarms about the run-up in housing prices before the market collapsed. She said Friday that the Fed should use its supervisory powers over financial firms to ward off bubbles but left open the possibility of raising interest rates in extraordinary cases. “As a first line of defense, we have a variety of supervisory tools, micro- and macro-prudential, that we can use to attempt to limit the behavior that is giving rise to those asset price misalignments,” Yellen said. But, she added, “I would not rule out using monetary policy.” Lawmakers also attempted to pin down a timeline for when the Fed might begin scaling back its $85 billion-a-month stimulus efforts. When the central bank signaled that it could begin dialing down the program this year, financial markets shivered, causing stock prices to plunge and a range of interest rates to shoot up. The Fed has since retreated from those statements. Yellen defended the move as necessary so the Fed could assess how the rise in rates would affect the housing market, which is playing a critical role in the recovery. She said the Fed considers market conditions but is not beholden to them. “I don’t think that the Fed ever can be or should be a prisoner of the markets,” Yellen said.

Solo: Series modeled after N.Y. program Continued from Page A-1 true to her word, she enrolled Phoenix just after his third birthday. Starting with a one-sixteenth size violin, he began to learn the Suzuki method, developed by Japanese musician Shinichi Suzuki in the mid-1900s. The method, particularly effective for young children, focuses on learning music by ear rather than learning to read musical notation. Phoenix studied Suzuki violin for about five years, then began private lessons with Carmelo de los Santos, a violin professor at The University of New Mexico. He still commutes to Albuquerque for lessons with de los Santos. The concert association raised the funds for him to travel once a month to Dallas to study with violinist Jan Sloman, a trainer for violin prodigies. Phoenix also is studying musical composition — and Skyping regularly — with Andrew Thomas, who was director of Julliard’s pre-college program. He’s currently writing a quartet for strings, which he describes as “a little modern.” The concert association’s EPIK program provides coaching and performance venues to help young musicians toward the next step in their musical careers. Phoenix now plays a seven-eighths violin made by Francesco Ruggieri in 1670, loaned to him by a Chicago violin shop. In addition to Sunday’s concert, Phoenix will be playing a Mendolssohn violin concerto with the Boulder Symphony on Feb. 15. This is a repeat performance

with that orchestral group. Last year, he played a Bruch violin concerto. The Boulder Symphony’s conductor was the conductor of the local youth symphony when Avalon played with that group. He also is playing in three concerts presented by the Canticum Novum Chorus & Orchestra this season. And he helps mentor young — or younger — violin students in the St. Michael’s High School orchestra. Phoenix isn’t neglecting his academic studies, however. He takes history, philosophy, math and Italian at Santa Fe Secondary School, and has writing and reading lessons with a private tutor. His other interests are skiing and snowboarding in the winter and swimming in the summer. It takes him three weeks to a month to learn a piece like the one he will be playing Sunday, and he mostly draws on muscle memory. “If you practice enough,” he said, “it’s in your fingers.” He said he doesn’t get too nervous playing for a live audience. Playing the violin, and even practicing for long hours, “makes me really happy,” Phoenix said. “I really like the sound.” Phoenix’s brother, Lucian, 16, preceded him in the EPIK program and is now studying oboe on a scholarship at the Interlochen Center for the Arts. His mother Katherine is a visual artist; his mother Robyn, a dancer and choreographer. The concert association hopes that offering the chance to hear classical music in an interactive, friendly, hourlong concert will inspire other young

musicians. The series, which starts Sunday, is modeled on the “Young People’s Concerts” made famous by Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic, which started in 1958 and aired on television for more than a decade. The concerts create an opportunity for families to enjoy listening to music together, Illick said. Illick was only 5 when he heard Mahalia Jackson perform at a jazz festival in Carmel, Calif. Such experiences are “formidable,” he said, and “everybody should have the chance for music to be their friend.” Santa Fe children have more access to the arts than kids who grow up elsewhere, Illick added, but “to be able to give great music a space to be demystified, to just become familiar, so it is part of people’s vocabulary, that’s invaluable. I know having had that as a child that it was invaluable.” Janet Dewey-Kollen, executive director of the Santa Fe Concert Association, shares that seminal musical experience. She saw the Sound of Music with her mother when the film premiered in 1965. Listening to music together is a way for families to relate to one another, she stressed. She said concerts also can plant a seed in the minds of young people who look at performers who are close to their age, like Phoenix, and think, “I could be that kid.” Contact Anne Constable at 986-3022 or

Restores: Boehner says law ‘not fixable’ Continued from Page A-1 insurers have to cancel your plan.” Obama spoke at a news conference where he repeatedly took responsibility for the woeful rollout of the health care program known by his name. Officials disclosed on Wednesday that fewer than 27,000 enrollments were completed in 36 states in the first month of operations for Including enrollment of more than 79,000 in the 14 states with their own websites, the nationwide number was 106,000 for October sign-ups. But that is still far fewer than expected and a mere fraction of the cancellation notices that have gone out because of the law — more than 4.2 million, according to an Associated Press survey. Obama’s approval ratings in polls also are ebbing, and he readily conceded that after recent events, the public can legitimately “expect me to have to win back some credibility on this health care law in particular and on a whole range of these issues in general.” The president also sought to shelter from political fallout any congressional Democrats who echoed the promise he repeated often when the legislation was under consideration in Congress — that anyone who liked his or her coverage would be able to keep it. “They were entirely sincere about it,” he said of the lawmakers. “It’s not on them, it’s on us.” Shortly after Obama spoke, the major industry trade group, America’s Health Insurance Plans, warned in a statement that prices might rise as a result of his new policy. “Changing the rules after health plans have already met the requirements of the law could destabilize the market and result in higher premiums for consumers,” it said. A few hours later, the head of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners added a fresh word of caution. Louisiana Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon, president of the group, said

Obama’s proposal could lead to higher premiums and market disruptions next year and beyond. “In addition, it is unclear how, as a practical matter, the changes proposed today by the president can be put into effect. In many states, cancellation notices have already gone out to policyholders and rates and plans have already been approved for 2014,” he added. Nor was it clear how different states would react to the administration request to change the rules. In California, where more than 1.1 million cancellations have been sent out, Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones called on insurers to extend the policies being scrapped. But in Washington, his counterpart, Mike Kreidler, said he won’t allow that to happen. “I have serious concerns about how President Obama’s proposal would be implemented and more significantly, its potential impact on the overall stability of our health insurance market,” he said in a statement. Until the president made his announcement, the administration had been assuming that individuals currently covered by plans marked for cancellation would switch to alternatives offered in government-established exchanges. If so, they would be joining millions of others who have lacked insurance in the past. The people with current individual coverage are a known risk to insurers. But those without generally have had less access to medical services, and are most costly to care for. The theory has been that moving people with current coverage into the new markets would help stabilize premiums. Only last week, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told a Senate panel she doubted that retroactively permitting insurers to sell canceled policies after all “can work very well since companies are now in the market with an array of new plans. Many have actually added consumer protec-

tions in the last three-and-a-half years.” It will now be up to individual companies to decide which plans remain for sale, subject to the approval of state insurance commissioners. Under Obama’s new policy, insurance companies will be required to inform consumers who want to keep canceled plans about the protections that are not included under those plans. Customers will also be notified that new options are available offering more coverage and in some cases, tax credits to cover higher premiums. Whatever the impact on consumers, Obama’s announcement did nothing to quell Republican opposition to the overhaul they opposed, sought to have overturned at the Supreme Court and have voted numerous times to repeal. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said it was time to scrap the law “once and for all.” He said, “You can’t fix this government-run health care plan called Obamacare. It’s just not fixable.” Even so, the House is expected to vote as scheduled on Friday on GOP-drafted legislation to permit insurance companies to sell existing individual coverage plans to current customers as well as newcomers. That is a step further than Obama went, and the White House said late Thursday the president would veto the measure. Approval in the GOP-controlled House is expected. Yet Obama’s statement, coupled with an as-yet-undisclosed Democratic alternative, could well hold Democratic defections to a minimum. Looking forward, Democrats said “Obamacare” will still turn out to be a political winner. “Voters, particularly in swing districts, would prefer a Democrat who promises to fix and improve the Affordable Care Act to a Republican who is obsessed with repealing and gutting it,” said Rep. Steve Israel of New York, who heads the party’s campaign committee.

Cop: City police did not authorize backup Continued from Page A-1 administrative leave while the investigation into the chase and shooting continues, Gutierrez said. Once the agency completes its investigation, he said, the evidence will be turned over to District Attorney Angela “Spence” Pacheco for review. She will then decide if the shooting should be taken to a grand jury. No contact information could be found for Wilson. In the meantime, some information about the incident has been released by the Santa Fe Police Department. Department spokeswoman Celina Westervelt said that at about 1 a.m. Nov. 7, state police requested backup in the highspeed pursuit. But Santa Fe police Lt. Andrea Dobyns, the shift commander at the time, didn’t get sufficient information to authorize city police involvement. Dobyns wanted to get details about the pursuit before deciding to deny or provide backup under her department’s motor vehicle pursuit policy, Westervelt said. According to New Mexico State Police, Wilson attempted to pull over Anaya at 1:14 a.m. at St. Francis Drive and Alta Vista Street because she was driving erratically. But she failed to stop, and the five-minute pursuit ensued. At times during the chase, police said, Anaya’s car reached speeds up to 87 miles per hour. Wilson used a pursuit intervention, or PIT, maneuver — a techique that forced Anaya to crash into a wall — on Camino Carlos Rey near Las Casitas. According to the state’s chase policy, the PIT maneuver for cars traveling faster than 35 miles per hour is “authorized when the elements of deadly force [are] present” — meaning there is a threat of harm or death to officers, other motorists or pedestrians. When Wilson got out of his car to approach Anaya’s fourdoor silver Honda Accord, police say, she “began to aggressively and immediately back towards the officer,” and that’s when Wilson decided to shoot. Anaya was dead at the scene, and a 34-yearold male passenger was taken to the hospital for minor injuries. Gutierrez wouldn’t say how many shots were fired, but crime scene photographs pro-

vided by the family’s lawyer show that most of the car’s windows were shattered. “Learning that the city police declined to [get] involved in the pursuit strengthens my claim that this chase was unjustified,” said Tom Clark, an attorney for Anaya’s family. “The one thing that would clear everything up is if [the state police] would just release the [police car dashboard camera] video.” Gutierrez wouldn’t comment on whether Wilson followed the agency’s policies on highspeed pursuits and actions involving use of deadly force. But he said any officer who needs to use his or her firearm has to consider the risk to any nearby bystanders, including passengers in vehicles that are being pursued. The state police’s use-ofdeadly force policy says that “decisions to discharge a firearm at or from a moving vehicle … are prohibited if they present an unreasonable risk to the officer or others.” Under state police policy on high-speed chases, a pursuit supervisor can call off a chase “if it is believed the continuation will be more dangerous to the public, officers, and/or the person being pursued than the necessity to capture the suspect.” According to the policy, an officer initiating a vehicle pursuit should take into consideration certain factors, including the nature of the violation and the population density in the area. Lorie Fridell, a criminology professor at the University of South Florida, said the pursuing officer might have suspected Anaya was driving drunk. But even if the officer took that into account, she said, if you start a high-speed chase with a drunken driver, “you’ll then have a drunk driving and going at 80 miles per hour.” “Erratic driving, like drunk driving, is a real quandary for police when you think about pursuits,” Fridell said. “This is a tough call for police. There’s never a right or wrong answer.” If Anaya’s erratic driving was a danger to others, she said, then maybe the officer felt justified pursuing her at high speeds. A memorial Mass for Anaya is scheduled for 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15, at St. Anne Parish.

Graduation: Boyd plans to use flexibility Continued from Page A-1 — that seemed to drive everyone in the committee room crazy Thursday. The Public Education Department had sent out a memo Nov. 4 informing districts that they may have to request a gym waiver from the state for students involved in band to ensure they meet the PE requirements. The legislative committee, department officials and school leaders spent at least an hour Thursday discussing the issue. In late October, the department sent districts a similar memo providing flexibility for a social studies requirement, giving credit to students who earned a passing grade for a science lab taken before or during the 2011-12 school year. The department sent out yet another memo on graduation requirements in early November. District leaders said the mid-semester memos raised concerns about whether certain students would lose their eligibility for graduation. Leighann Lenti, director of policy for the Public Education Department, and Paul Aguilar, the department’s deputy secretary of finance and operations, told the committee that the memos were emphasizing what is already stated in law. The department is not changing rules, they said, but is ensuring that districts understand students’ options. Public Education Secretarydesignate Hanna Skandera sent superintendents a memo Tuesday noting that recent correspondence “does not change graduation guidelines for students who have previously demonstrated competency in all five

subject areas.” In that letter, she acknowledged superintendents are expressing concern that their students do not know what is required of them to graduate. Skandera’s letter says that after this year, the department plans to change the rules on alternative requirements, which now give local school districts more control over graduation eligibility. “Following this transition year, she states, “PED intends to amend the rule to ensure a uniform and consistent expectation for all students graduating in 2015 and beyond.” Boyd said he intends to take advantage of the one-year flexibility. But he also asked the committee to ensure “that local authority never be removed from rule.” He said districts do not disagree with the department about maintaining high standards, but differ in who should determine alternative measures of competency. For Santa Fe Public Schools, Boyd said, the district would insist on a C, rather than the state-mandated D grade for seniors in some subjects. The district also may take into account performance-based works and admission letters from colleges that already have accepted seniors whose graduation eligibilty is in question. Some superintendents suggested to the lawmakers that they consider two tiers of graduation certificates: one for college and one for career. Some argued that since not all students will be going on to college, they should not be held to the same stringent guidelines as those who will. The committee will meet for a half-day Friday to discuss potential education legislation for the January 2014 session.

Philippines defends typhoon response By Oliver Teves and Todd Pitman

TACLOBAN, Philippines — The Philippine government on Friday defended its efforts to deliver assistance to victims of Typhoon Haiyan, many of whom have received little or no assistance since the monster storm struck one week ago. “In a situation like this, nothing is fast enough,” Interior Secretary Mar Roxas said in Tacloban, most of which was destroyed by the storm one week ago. “The need is massive, the need is immediate, and you can’t reach everyone.” Government officials have given different death tolls, both actual and estimated, as a result of the storm. Given the scale of the disaster, and infrastructure and communications problems, this is not unusual. The spokesman for the country’s civil defense agency, Maj. Reynaldo Balido, confirmed early Friday that the figure had risen to 2,360, hours after the United Nations issued conflicting reports on how many people had died. On the ground in Tacloban, authorities handed out a situation report stating that 3,422 people had been killed on Samar and Leyte islands, the two most affected areas. Some officials estimate that the final toll, when the missing are declared dead and remote regions reached, will be more than 10,000. At least 600,000 people have been displaced. Authorities are struggling to meet their immediate needs, an expected occurrence after major disasters, especially in already poor countries where local and national governments lack capacity. The pace of the aid effort has picked up over the last 24 hours, according to reporters who have been in the region for several days. Foreign governments are dispatching food, water, medical supplies and trained staff to the region. Trucks and generators are also arriving.

But many people complain that the aid effort is inadequate. “The government’s distribution system is not enough. They are handing out small food packets to each household. But when you have three families inside one home, one little packet is not enough,” said Renee Patron, 33, an American citizen of Filipino descent who was in Guiuan city on eastern Samar province when the typhoon struck. Her friend, Susan Tan, whose grocery store and warehouse were completely looted after the typhoon, is despondent but determined to carry on with her life and help others. She’s now using her empty warehouse as a center from where people can make calls on a satellite phone she got from a friend who works for local telecoms company Smart. There has been no cellphone service in the town since last Friday. “This was my store. Now’s it’s a relief center and a call center,” said Tan, 43. “It was ransacked by panicked … people desperate for food. There was no way to control them. We had stocked up on food for the Christmas holidays. They took everything, and not just the food. They ransacked my office too, anything they could find. They took away our furniture.” Now, the barren blue shelves are empty. Still it is serving a purpose, with about 100 people

queued up outside waiting to make calls. The free calls are limited to one minute each. Johnny Ogriman, one of the men waiting in the line, said he has not spoken to any family members since the typhoon hit last week. “I’m trying to call my brother in Saudi Arabia. I want to let him know that we’re alive, that we’re safe,” he said. “Although I’ve been looted and bankrupt by this, I cannot refuse my friends and my town. We need to help each other,” she said. “I can’t just go to Cebu and sit in the mall while this place is in ruins.” Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin told The Associated Press that armed forces have set up communications lines and C-130 transport planes are conducting regular flights to Tacloban, the capital of Leyte. “The biggest challenge is to be able to reach out to all the areas and overwhelm them with food and water. There are

just a few more areas in Leyte and Samar that have not been reached and our hope is that we will reach all these areas today, 100 percent,” he said. In Tacloban city, the big challenge is the restoration of power, where many electric posts are down. But it may take some time because of the debris, he said. Troops are removing bodies near the sea with the help of the Departments of Health, Public Works and Highways, he said. Water filtration systems are also operating in Tacloban and two other towns in Leyte province, the hardest-hit area. Helicopters are dropping relief supplies, he said. Gazmin said that looting has been brought under control and no incidents have been reported over the past two days. “Our augmentation of the police and Philippine army was able to stop the problem of lawlessness,” he said.


PHOENIX — Arizona regulators on Thursday voted to adopt a roughly $5 monthly fee for customers of the state’s largest utility who install rooftop solar panels in a move that had the solar industry declaring victory over what it saw as an effort to topple its business. The Arizona Corporation Commission’s vote came after two days of talks and testimony from citizens and representatives on both sides of the issue as Arizona Public Service sought a monthly rate increase for solar customers of $50 to $100. The commission’s decision was being watched by utilities nationwide. Utilities in other states have been pushing similar arguments and seeking the same sorts of rate increases, so a victory in Arizona could have

created momentum elsewhere. “APS launched an unprecedented campaign spending millions of dollars to destroy the rooftop solar industry and they failed,” said Bryan Miller, president of The Alliance for Solar Choice and vice president of public policy for solar company Sunrun Inc. “This will allow our market to continue to grow.” APS spokesman Jim McDonald said the company was pleased that the commission recognized fees had to be charged for solar customers, but was disappointed at the small amount approved. “It will be exponentially millions of dollars more expensive later than it is now,” McDonald said, adding that there are roughly 500 new rooftop solar installations per month in Arizona. “And that will fall on the shoulders of our non-rooftop solar customers.”

Concerns Crop mutation breeding increases without regulation build over Practice sparks fairness, safety request concerns to donate organs By Amanda Lee Myers and Julie Carr Smyth The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio — An eleventh-hour request by an Ohio death row inmate to donate his organs is raising troubling moral and medical questions among transplant experts and ethicists. Less than a day before child killer Ronald Phillips was set to die by lethal injection, Republican Gov. John Kasich on Wednesday postponed the execution so that medical experts can look into Phillips’ suitability as an organ donor. Phillips, 40, wants to give his mother a kidney before he is put to death and donate his heart to his sister afterward. The governor said he is open to the possibility of Phillips donating a kidney or other nonvital organs before he is executed. But Kasich appeared to rule out a post-execution donation. “I realize this is a bit of uncharted territory for Ohio,” Kasich said in a statement, “but if another life can be saved by his willingness to donate his organs and tissues, then we should allow for that to happen.” Some medical experts and others warn that execution chemicals could render organs unusable. They also are deeply disturbed by the prospect of death row inmates donating organs, even if that can ease shortages so severe that patients die while on the waiting list. They question whether the condemned can freely give consent, or are desperately hoping to win clemency. They worry that such practices would make judges and juries more likely to hand out death sentences. And they are troubled by the notion of using inmates for spare parts. Medical ethicist Arthur Caplan of New York University said organ donation is incompatible with the goals of punishment. “It’s unethical because this guy who’s being executed raped and killed a 3-year-old. When you donate your organs, there’s a kind of redemption,” Caplan said. “Punishment and organ donation don’t go well together. I don’t think the kinds of people we’re executing we want to make in any way heroic.” Yet it’s not unheard of for a death row inmate to become an organ donor. Condemned Delaware inmate Steven Shelton was allowed to donate a kidney to his mother in 1995, though his execution wasn’t imminent. In 1996, the Alabama Supreme Court halted David Larry Nelson’s execution so he could donate a kidney to his sick brother. His brother was too ill for surgery and later died. Requests in other states, including Texas, have been rejected. All involved so-called live donations, never donation of a vital organ like a heart. Richard Dieter, executive director of the Washingtonbased Death Penalty Information Center, which opposes capital punishment, said the practice raises troubling concerns. “Once you put the person into the death row or execution category, then their life becomes less in the equation of things,” he said. “That’s a slippery slope of one life being used to save another.” Anne Paschke, a spokeswoman for Richmond, Va.based United Network for Organ Sharing, said in a statement that her organization’s ethics committee in 2007 deemed the practice “morally reprehensible.” She said the committee sees extreme difficulty “in ensuring that a condemned prisoner could give proper informed consent for donation, free from any coercion or consideration of personal gain.” Caplan said keeping vital organs viable during executions would require avoiding lethal injection, electrocution and other methods that would harm them.

The NFL’s out-of-touch, out-of-time “context” has been on vivid display during the ongoing contretemps between Miami Dolphin guard Richie Incognito and his offensive tackle teammate Jonathan Martin. When Martin left the team complaining of an unsafe workplace environment due to harassment by Incognito and other Dolphins, he launched a national conversation about bullying, hazing, physical and verbal abuse, and athletes’ antics. But as important as these things may be — especially bullying — they are tangential to the deeper issue of the Incognito-Martin dust-up: the war to define what constitutes masculinity. For generations, just about every boy growing up in America felt obliged to prove his manhood, which generally meant demonstrating physical strength, a disdain for gentility, a willingness and ability to stand up for himself, especially with his fists, and a disregard for anything “soft” — women, except as sex objects; intellectual prowess; and general sensitivity. That’s how it was, right through adolescence and often beyond. Toughness is what made a man a man. No boy wanted to be called a “sissy” or a “wimp” or, worst of all, a “girl,” which is still a term of opprobrium used by some coaches to push their troops. And that is the way it still is, apparently, in large parts of the NFL. That sort of manliness was on full display when, according to a Florida police report, Incognito allegedly used a golf club to touch the genital area of a female volunteer at a charity tournament and then rubbed himself against her; or when, as the head of a Dolphin Leadership Council, he held meetings at a strip club; or when he left a vicious, racist message on Martin’s voicemail. Incognito has defended himself by calling these episodes a “product of the environment,” and he is right.

Focus on reading, not just retention

N But Incognito and many of his NFL brethren don’t seem to realize that they are living in a time warp. Just about everyone in the media, including the sports media, was scandalized by Incognito’s language — even after he protested that it was a joke and told a Fox Sports reporter that Martin used similar language with him — and just about everyone outside the NFL seems inclined toward defending Martin, which is how the bullying meme began. That’s due in part to decades of feminist proselytizing but also to general civilizing forces that have deemphasized machismo and allowed men to define themselves in ways other than physical intimidation. Martin is himself an example. He’s an offensive lineman who is the son of two Harvard-educated lawyers. He graduated from HarvardWestlake School in L.A., and then Stanford. By all accounts, he loved football, but he didn’t love the muscle-flexing culture of the NFL. As his high school coach said — speaking of the cultural divide between Martin and others in the game — Martin was accustomed to Stanford, Duke and Rice play-

ers, not Nebraska, Miami and LSU players. The old machismo, however, dies hard. Incognito’s teammates have leapt to his defense, and so have many others associated with the NFL, lambasting Martin in the bargain. A number of players called Martin a coward. One ex-Dolphins’ lineman, Lydon Murtha, said that Martin “broke the code,” adding that playing football was a “man’s job” and suggesting that the 312-pound Martin wasn’t up to it. New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle said that Martin should have punched Incognito in the face, presumably because that’s how men settle disputes. Incognito himself is said to have felt betrayed by Martin because, he asserts, the racial slurs and abuse were intended as a form of “tough love.” Even several African American players on the Dolphins excused Incognito’s use of the “N-word” as just Incognito being Incognito. In effect, they were saying that machismo is thicker than race — though, of course, in defending Incognito, they were defending their own outdated machismo. What it all adds up to is an admission of this old-fashioned notion: How do you

know you are a man if you don’t act like a goon? The NFL is one of the last redoubts where goons and thugs have a privileged status. Two years ago the New Orleans Saints were punished for paying a bounty to players who incapacitated opposing players. Everyone admits that the violence of the sport, the danger and the hits, are a good part of the appeal of the league — our very own Hunger Games. Professional football allows its fans, and especially men who may feel culturally neutered, to reexperience the good old days when bravado and violence defined winners. Even cuddly John Madden, the former analyst, used to enthuse over what he called a “de-cleater” — a tackle that knocked a man off his feet. So whatever else Jonathan Martin is the victim of, he has been preyed on by a form of ugly, vestigial, brutalizing masculinity. And he decided to resist it, not with his fists but with a legal process. That may not seem “manly,” but it is the way men do things nowadays — real men, that is.

udging from the recent letters to the editor, everyone on food stamps should explain and justify each of their purchases to the checkers, baggers and folks in line who are observing their EBT cards being flashed about. Additionally, perhaps they should have a photo pin of the disabled person for which they may be shopping or note from the Internal Revenue Service indicating the specific need. The store manager could then approve and document each situation or, better yet, several retired hedge fund managers could be on site to justify each purchase. After all, these are the men who know how to manage funds. Since 2004, JPMorgan has administered the food stamp program in most circumstances and is paid for each case, they would be the perfect ones on make the call. JPMorgan alone has made more than half a billion dollars off the welfare program. Emily Warntz

ever let it be said that Gov. Susana Martinez quits on a favored initiative. With her Department of Public Education Secretary-designate Hanna Skandera, Martinez has been pushing education reforms based on policies tried in Florida — and the drive to hold students back in third grade if they can’t read well enough will be back in 2014. Before going into another partisan battle between the Legislation and the administration, let’s try to remember that everyone in the state wants to help children become better readers. On one hand, we have the governor and Skandera, statistics in hand, bemoaning the sad state of reading proficiency among third-graders in New Mexico. Armed with a new study out of Florida (put together by a University of Colorado assistant professor who just happens to be a Senior Fellow at a right-leaning think tank), the two are not backing down that flunking kids as the best solution to improving reading. Marcus Winters’ research, presented at a Legislative Education Study Committee, indicates that students held back in third grade made substantial progress through the seventh grade in Florida schools. He compared students held back with those who barely passed their third-grade reading tests and still moved along. It’s important research. However, retention is but one part of the story. The key part of Florida’s success doesn’t seem to be in retention, but in interventions — mandatory summer school, an additional 90 minutes of daily reading instruction, individual academic improvement plans and high-performing teachers for students who were held back. Heck, if such strategies started in first grade, perhaps no students would have trouble on their third-grade tests. The other perspective on the issue comes from those who don’t want state-mandated rules about who passes and who doesn’t. Many Democrats in the Legislature, educators and parents want decisions about education made closer to the child. We have said before, and still believe, that decisions about education work best closest to the student — a position that is quite conservative. Mandates from on high often have unintended consequences. The whole issue of how schools deal with extra third-graders when every classroom is full has never been dealt with by Martinez and Skandera; a mandatory third-grade retention policy, inadvertently, could cause overcrowding and inadequate learning conditions for other children in the school. Repeating the entire grade could be excruciating for the slow reader who might be outstanding in math or science. We believe that the governor and her secretary-designate are correct that reading is fundamental. Some children should be held back. But rather than pitch retention as the primary solution, we would like to see a collaborative approach (remember, Martinez is that rare Republican who can work with Democrats, according to the national media). The policy goal shouldn’t be retention. It should be helping children learn to read. Retention could be one plank of the goal, with decisions made at the local district and school level, and state money being spent on tutoring, additional reading time and summer programs that improve literacy. Improving reading proficiency is something New Mexico can do. But it doesn’t require a one-size-fits-all, state-mandated solution. Improved reading skills must be the target.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Nov. 15, 1913: The expected attack on the U.S. Indian agency at Shiprock has been delayed by the sickness of a leader, according to reports, and the band is said to be in hiding in the Choiskia mountains. The U.S. Marshal and posse of deputies have arrived in Shiprock. The renegade Navajos are under indictment for riots, larceny and bigamy. There are 11 of them in the original band, although it is feared that the medicine men will incite through sympathy the 2,000 other men on the reservation. The agency is 35 miles from the railroad and isolated by bad roads. There is no reason to fear a general outbreak yet. Nov. 15, 1963: Española — If work progresses as it has to date, the Rio Arriba Telephone Co. hopes to give the people of the county a present on Christmas morning — a brand new $1 million telephone system. A recent uproar at Harvard over a report which condemned rules permitting girls to visit men’s dormitory and fraternity house rooms hasn’t caused much stir in New Mexico. Such rules have never been permitted at New Mexico’s state universities. The policies are very firm: There are no rules other than those of society for decent behavior. All fraternities, sororities and dormitories have open visiting areas for guests.

Even after five Tony awards, 18 Emmy nominations and three Oscar nominations, Lansbury was overwhelmed to learn she would be getting an Academy Angela Award for Lansbury lifetime achievement. “It was quite an emotional moment,” the 88-year-old actress said. “It’s a nod for everything I’ve done, in a sense. That’s what it means to me: It is really an acknowledgement of a good career, a good career as an actress in Hollywood.” Before audiences knew the British star on stage in Mame or on television in Murder, She Wrote, Lansbury was a movie star who earned a supporting actress Oscar nomination for her debut role in 1944’s Gaslight. “My early days at MGM were thrilling and exciting beyond words because it all happened so fast,” she said. “I started off with three big, huge movies.” National Velvet with Elizabeth Taylor followed Gaslight, then The Picture of Dorian Gray, for which Lansbury earned her second Oscar nomination. The third was for 1962’s The Manchurian Candidate.

Steve Martin The comic actor had no idea what academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs was calling about. “I thought maybe a host had fallen out or something,” Martin said. “I thought maybe they needed a Steve favor or Martin wanted me to introduce somebody.” The 68-year-old was touched when he realized he would be the one getting introduced — as the recipient of an honorary Oscar for lifetime achievement. “It goes back to the ’80s and ’90s — that all that work was actually registering with

somebody in a kind of serious way,” Martin said, reflecting on the early films he wrote and starred in, such as The Jerk, Three Amigos! and L.A. Story. “I and all the people I worked with, we took it very seriously and we worried a lot about it, so it’s quite a compliment to have it regarded in some way. It’s quite an honor.” He’s appeared in more than three dozen movies and hosted the Oscars three times, but has never been nominated for an Academy Award. “It doesn’t bother me that traditionally, comedies don’t get recognized on a yearly basis,” he said of Oscar’s history of slighting comedy films. “But in the honorary academy list, there are a lot of comedians and funny people recognized.”

Piero Tosi The costumer has earned five Academy Award nominations for his designs in films such as La Traviata and La Cage aux Folles and calls his honorary Oscar for lifetime achieve- Piero Tosi ment “the crowning of a career.” “Given my young age, I was really shocked,” the 86-yearold wrote in an email to the AP from his home in Italy. Tosi’s collaborations with Italian director Luchino Visconti consistently caught the academy’s eye, with Oscar nods for Tosi’s costumes in 1963’s The Leopard, 1971’s Death in Venice and 1973’s Ludwig. The designer said he has been “fascinated by the cinema” since he was a child. “Mostly, I dreamt a lot watching American movies of the ’30s and ’40s,” he said. “That wonderful season fed me throughout my career,” which spans six decades and includes some 60 films.

Angelina Jolie The 38-year-old actressdirector was “completely surprised” when she learned the leaders of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences wanted to recognize her with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. Oprah Winfrey received the honor last year. Past recipients also include Quincy Jones and Paul Newman. “Paul Newman has been a hero of mine since I was a little girl,” Jolie wrote in an email to The Associated Press from Australia, where she is directing her latest film, Unbroken. “Receiving the Hersholt award makes me feel like I am on the right path but also reminds me I have more to do.” Jolie is active with the Prevent Sexual Violence Initiative and serves as special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Even with a flourishing career and family, Jolie said she always has time for humanitarian work. “It is an honor to work on behalf of refugee children and victims of rape,” she said. “No matter how much I have to do, how busy my life is, I am always aware that the challenges are absolutely nothing in comparison to what they face on a daily basis.”

Martinez aims to expand abuse law Governor wants lawmakers to make clear all are required to report crimes against children By Barry Massey

The Associated Press

Gov. Susana Martinez said Thursday she’ll ask the Legislature to fix a legal loophole created by a recent court decision narrowing who must report suspected cases of abuse and neglect. The governor’s target is a ruling by the state Court of Appeals last month that only 10 categories of people, including physicians, nurses and teachers, must contact authorities

about suspected child abuse. Martinez disagreed with the court’s interpretation of the law and said she’ll ask the Legislature to make clear that every person is required to report suspected abuse. “It’s disappointing. It’s misguided, and it’s dangerous for kids who can’t report child abuse themselves and need adults to step in and to help keep them safe,” Martinez said of the court ruling in remarks to a meeting of officials from state child protection agencies across the country.

When she was district attorney, Martinez prosecuted members of a Las Cruces family for not reporting the abuse of a 5-month-old girl, Brianna Lopez, who died in 2002. The child, who became known as Baby Brianna, had been sexually assaulted. Her injuries included skull fractures and other broken bones, numerous bruises and more than a dozen human bite marks on her face and body. The child’s father and uncle were convicted of multiple charges, including child abuse resulting in death and criminal sexual penetration of a minor. The girl’s mother also was convicted of several counts, including negligently permitting

child abuse resulting in death. Martinez said she successfully prosecuted another uncle and a grandmother for failing to report the abuse. Under the recent court decision, the governor said, such prosecutions wouldn’t be possible. At issue in the ruling was a New Mexico law that states suspected abuse must be reported by “every person, including a licensed physician … a law enforcement officer … a school teacher” and seven other categories of professionals. The court said only those listed professionals had an obligation to notify authorities of possible abuse and neglect — not

which he observed an enemy machine gun nest on the Marines’ right flank, and used the code to relay the information. “Our boys did a fine job” in spotting and wiping out the Japanese gunners, Nez said. According to the Code Talkers Web page,, it is the only unbroken code in military history.

The city of Santa Fe is investigating a possibly contaminated area in the offleash Frank Ortiz Dog Park after the Thursday death of a dog that reportedly drank a yellow substance two weeks ago in an arroyo at the park. Robert Wood of the city’s Parks and Recreation Division said city crews were searching for the spot Thursday afternoon after learning of the possible poisoning. Crews aren’t sure if the oncewet spot is on city or county property, he said, but testing the soil for contaminants is the first step in the investigation. Wood said crews had difficulty finding the exact spot where the dog was drinking from a pool of water, especially since the water at the site has since evaporated. “Nothing like this has ever happened before,” Wood said. “We wish they would have contacted us earlier.” The off-leash portion of Frank Ortiz Park, 160 Camino de las Crucitas, is at the site of a former landfill. Volunteers with the loose-knit Friends of the Dog Park, who host several cleanups at the park in connection with the city and Keep Santa Fe Beautiful, often fill dozens of trash bags with landfill debris that has worked its way up to the surface. Buster, the 2-year-old mixed-breed dog who died early Thursday, had consumed some kind of yellow foamy substance during one of his regular walks at the park Nov. 2, said the dog’s owner, Sally Blakemore. The large, unfenced park includes several trails to nearby arroyos. Blakemore said she noticed a yellow, foamy substance on the dog’s muzzle when he came to her after walking him in an area below the parking lot, in an arroyo near a grove of trees. The area accumulates enough water that dogs can swim, and people often stack rocks there, she said. The sinkhole is dry now, she noted, although it might be a little damp. “I called him, and he came out of the arroyo, and that’s when I saw the goo,” she said. “It must have been some kind of sweet chemical — he had this yellow foam on his face.” Later that day, at home, Buster wouldn’t play and wasn’t thirsty. By Monday, Blakemore said, she knew something was wrong and took him to her veterinarian, who immediately started running tests. Those tests didn’t show anything unusual, but Buster’s health deteriorated. She eventually took him to the emergency clinic, where he was prescribed a series of medications, including steroids. She returned him to the clinic Wednesday evening and received more medication.

Last original Code Talker shares story, accomplishments with SFIS students By Dennis J. Carroll

For The New Mexican


avajo Code Talker Chester Nez brought a sense of pride and history to students at the Santa Fe Indian School on Thursday. “I was very happy to use our Navajo language against the Japanese,” the 92-year-old Nez told an all-school assembly at the Pueblo Pavilion. Nez, originally from the Navajo village of Chichiltah between Gallup and Zuni, appeared in good health and spoke with a strong voice, though he is confined to a wheelchair due to the diabetes-related amputation of both feet. He wore a bright orange Marine Corps windbreaker and a red “Code Talker” cap. It was a belated Veterans Day observance arranged by seventh-grade teacher Harold Pourier, a friend of Nez’s son, Michael, and Judith Avila, Nez’s biographer and author with Nez of

Code Talker: The First and Only Memoir by one of the Original Code Talkers of WWII (Penguin Books). Much of the proceeds from the book provide income for Nez’s family, Avila said. The code, derived from the Navajo language, was used by U.S. Marines to avoid decryption of tactical combat information during the bloody battles against the Japanese in the Pacific. Nez, now of Albuquerque, was one of the original 29 Navajos, mostly farmers and sheepherders, who developed an encrypted code that could baffle the Japanese. Eventually, about 400 Navajos were trained as Code Talkers. Avila said only 30 remain alive, and Nez is the last of the original group. Nez saw combat on the islands of Guadalcanal, Bougainville, Guam, Peleliu and Angaur. He was asked to give an example of how the code was used to convey battle information without the Japanese knowing. He recalled an incident on Guadalcanal in

Folk Art Market to unveil new name, online ventures By Anne Constable

The New Mexican

Santa Fe’s International Folk Art Market might be forgiven for simply basking in its latest successes: $2.7 million in goods sold at the 10th market in July 2013; nearly 21,000 visitors at the two-day event on Museum Hill; $11 million in total economic impact; a $6 million capital campaign that exceeded its goal by $700,000. And there are also testimonials from many participating folk artists that the market is fulfilling its primary purpose of helping to foster economic and cultural sustainability and improving their lives

and the lives of their families around the globe. The dynamic organization, however, is bounding ahead with new plans for honoring the handmade. Next week, the market is adopting a new name: International Folk Art Alliance. The flagship market will continue to be known as the International Folk Art Market/Santa Fe and will fall under the umbrella organization. A new website will be rolled out Monday (, and an ad campaign will follow next year. In 2014, the alliance is planning to double the number of participants in its

Mentor to Market training program to 60, including every new market artist. This program helps the artists learn business skills such as pricing, developing quality control, building inventory, packing and shipping. “We can’t promise another market opportunity. They know that,” said Judy Espinar, a market co-founder and creative director. “But there are some other opportunities in the world.

Funeral services and memorials MARTHA K. IWASKI Artist, healer, trickster, friend-- will be celebrated Saturday November 16 at the Folk Art Museum, 6 pm to 8 pm. Martha left peacefully September 29, 2013, watched over by her Nisha, the world’s most coddled standard brown poodle and perhaps the one boy she deigned to invite into her bed. Martha was born in Clovis, NM, August 21, 1934. Her lifelong enchantment with Northern New Mexico began in childhood on San Juan and San Ildefonso pueblos. Martha started her artist’s journey at the age of four when her father, an Austrian-born archeologist, took her to study painting with Po Povida, the son of famed potter Maria Martinez. She learned to paint in the vivid colors that became a hallmark of her artwork. Her senior year in high school, Martha was first-chair trumpet in New Mexico’s allstate band. She created a family legend when wind blew away her music just as she started a big solo. She didn’t miss a note. It was perhaps the first in a lifetime of ignoring inconvenient interruptions. Martha was a polymath, earning a bachelor’s degree in zoology from UNM, a law degree from the University of Denver, and a PhD in psychology from Antioch University. After retiring as a director at the Institute for American Indian Art, she studied Jungian psychology in Switzerland, shamanism in the Amazon, and Tibetan Buddhism everywhere. Inspired to pursue her considerable healing gifts, Martha became a doctor of oriental medicine. She was among the first U.S. students trained by Sensei Nakazono, a renowned Japanese acupuncturist and Aikido master. In her thirty years of practice, countless clients benefited from her care and compassion. An accomplished contemporary artist, Martha painted to provoke and inspire. She wrote that she was "interested in portraying the controversial; the mystery, the joy, the wonder, and the spiritual process of life and how we interact with ourselves, each other, the earth, and the greater universe." She delighted in ambiguity, distortion and dislocation of form. As she put it, "You try and upset the human experience." Her passionate art reflected her remarkable life. Martha was a world traveler and world citizen. In 1962, she was in the inaugural class of the U.S. Peace Corps, where she met her lifelong friend Margaret. Ever pragmatic about putting others’ talents to her best use, Martha chose assignment to Peru with Margaret because, as Margaret puts it, "I could speak Spanish and she knew there would always be an interpreter handy." Their four-woman team landed in a coastal fishing village and discovered that everything and everyone smelled of fish. So Martha got her group adopted by U.S. fishing crews, who cheered their idealism and kept them supplied with American toilet paper, Kleenex, Joy dishwashing detergent, cases of Budweiser Beer, many bottles of Scotch, and cases of Dr. Pepper and 7Up. A natural athlete, Martha was a fine tennis player, a wicked skier, an annoyingly adept golfer. She picked up clubs late in life and hit golf balls 150 yards. She was militant about forgetting which ball was hers, a lapse that let her claim the one closest to the green. In August, she was on the fairway, claiming friends’ balls, three days before her cancer diagnosis. She was a fierce outdoorswoman, inveterate traveler, long-distance hiker, and the trickster companion that campfire stories are made of-including the scary ones. While working near Philmont as a camp counselor, she lived on horseback, often disappearing into the wilderness for days with her friend Susan. Mary Lou, her friend of 59 years, is still jumpy from their three-week Grand Canyon river trip, a wooden-dory odyssey Mary Lou remembers chiefly for the moment Martha leaned over and softly inquired, "What would you do if you had a scorpion on your life jacket crawling up to your face?" With strangers as well as friends, Martha was generous with practical jokes. If a tourist asked for directions, she often sent them the wrong way with a gleam in her eye and a giggle at their backs, in hopes that a visitor to the City Different might wander off to an authentic Santa Fe experience-random, spontaneous, slightly eccentric. In sum, like Martha. Martha was a foodie and a serious vegetarian cook. Friends looked forward to brisk fall days when she prowled the Santa Fe Farmers Market, whipped up feasts in someone else’s kitchen, and demonstrated her uncanny ability to time an exit--just before it was time to clean up. Her cooking exploits occurred in alternate spatial dimensions, evidenced by the fact that every recipe she swore came together in 20 minutes inevitably took hours and every pot in a house. Martha ate in Andiamo’s like it was her kitchen, developing a hopeless addiction to profiteroles. Whenever her family came to Santa Fe, only the Shed would do. She loved Call the Midwife, The Good Wife; The Daily Show; Broadway musicals; Hillary Clinton; political debates when progressives won; dressing up for Halloween and denying being in costume; reveling in all rituals of Christmas peculiar to Santa Fe. She was an outspoken feminist and fierce supporter of equality for all. A master gardener, she coaxed astonishing beauty from flowers, just as she created it in her art and her life. Martha was preceded in death by her mother Gladys Leo Mathews, life-long teacher of the pueblos; her father Edward Henry Iwaski, and her beloved sister and best friend Elizabeth Ann Gerdin. She is survived by friend and brother-in-law Rudolph Gerdin, niece Lynda Webb, nephew Andrew Gerdin, and three grand-nephews, two grand-nieces. All who knew and love Martha are invited to help us celebrate and remember her.

NILA JARAMILLO HAUGHT Our beautiful mom, has quietly passed away. Mom represented all that was vibrant and meaningful in life. Her generosity knew no bounds; her friendship knew no limits. She was strong in faith and determined in her conviction. Born during the Fourth of July holiday, Mom was colorful, extravagant and explosively energetic like a firecracker. Mom was born in Fairview NM, and grew up at Canon Plaza and Ojo Caliente NM, where she baled hay and herded cows as a child and could ride a horse comparable to any cowboy.

Mom and Dad eventually settled in Santa Fe, where she lived the last 46 years of her life. Mom was artistic and had a deep pride for her rich Hispanic culture, which she shared with us. She supported aspiring artists and cultivated an expansive art collection. Mom stayed home and raised us, her daughters LaNelle, Janelle and Juanita. In addition to being our mom, she volunteered in the community and kept all her friends and neighbors well fed. For many years she participated in the Women’s Rodeo Roundup and rarely missed the Rodeo de Santa Fe.

City to decide how charter issues will be listed on ballot By Howard Houghton

The New Mexican

Whether Santa Fe voters will get to pick and choose among a series of proposed changes to the city charter will apparently be decided next month by the City Council. Councilors late Wednesday agreed to put eight items before voters in the March 4 municipal election, almost all of which would lead to a strengthening of the mayor’s role in city government. Voters will be asked whether they want the current part-time mayor’s job of presiding over a policymaking body and ceremonial functions to be replaced by a full-time executive position with direct supervisory authority over key city administrators. However, councilors asked the City Attorney’s Office to

consider whether some of the questions can be consolidated when placed on the ballot, or whether voters should be allowed to decide on amendments separately. The council plans to vote on the final election resolution at its Dec. 11 meeting. A proposal that failed to win council approval would have asked voters whether a runoff election should be required if the winner of a mayoral or council race didn’t win more than 50 percent of the vote in a regular election. The proposal would have called for such a change beginning with the 2016 election. However, the prospect that an already approved ranked-choice voting system in the city charter could be in place by then and the potential cost of a runoff election helped lead councilors to pass over the idea.

The council engaged in lengthy, sometimes convoluted, debate over procedural matters in addition to the amendments recommended by an appointed Charter Review Commission and proposals introduced by various councilors. On Thursday, some city officials and observers of the council meeting remained confused over some elements of the council’s action. Late Thursday afternoon, city public information officer Jodi McGinnis Porter issued a statement under a headline that began “What Happened Last Night at Santa Fe City Council…” The statement said the governing body on Wednesday had agreed to include the eight items on the upcoming election resolution: u Effective May 2014, should the mayor vote on all matters that come before the govern-

ing body? Currently, the mayor only votes to break a tie or when more than a simple majority of the eight-member council is required for certain decisions. u Should the position of mayor become a full-time position? u Should the mayor directly supervise the city manager, city attorney and city clerk? u Should the mayor have authority to terminate the city manager, city attorney and city clerk without City Council approval? The mayor would continue to need council approval when filling such positions. u Should the City Council have authority to fire the city manager if six councilors favor the idea? Currently, five votes are needed to remove a city manager. u Should the mayor be paid a salary of $74,000 a year until an

In brief

agree on whether voters should be allowed to vote on each charter amendment separately. Another question that lingered after Wednesday’s meeting concerned how the council will proceed Dec. 11. A member of the City Attorney’s Office told councilors that election resolutions traditionally are included in a “consent agenda,” under which all items are voted upon without further discussion unless a councilor moves for discussion. Councilor Patti Bushee remarked that after the lengthy process involved in drafting the charter proposals, “I would suggest that this is not your standard election resolution and that perhaps we even have an opportunity for further public discussion.” Contact Howard Houghton at

The New Mexico Wildlife Federation and numerous chapters of Trout Unlimited say proposed diversions stand to harm wildlife and threaten the state’s outdoor recreation economy. The Interstate Stream Commission is reviewing proposals to use funding from the Arizona Water Settlements Act to address water demands in southwestern New Mexico. The groups argue that a diversion project would be costly and could end up being useless if river flows fall below certain levels. They point to forecasts that call for continued drought. The Gila is the last main-stem river in New Mexico without a major dam or diversion. It’s also home to the federally protected Gila trout.

Board to meet on health exchange ROSWELL — The governing board of New Mexico’s state-run health insurance marketplace meets in Roswell this week as it faces questions of what can be done to help New Mexicans struggling with the federal exchange website. Board member Jason Sandel said he expects Friday’s meeting to include a discussion of what can be done to deal with the federal exchange New Mexico is relying on to enroll individuals. The state’s exchange handles the enrollment of small businesses. Sandel said he wants to know whether individuals can use a state-run call center to enroll. The board is scheduled to meet at the Eastern New Mexico University campus in Roswell starting at 10 a.m. On Thursday, the exchange is holding a “listening session” in the community to hear from the public.

Treasurer part of investment audit ALBUQUERQUE — The state auditor is targeting Bernalillo County’s treasurer because of worries about how the office handles bond investments and pays brokers. State Auditor Hector Balderas said in a letter to county officials Wednesday that an annual audit disclosed problems with the treasurer’s investments and management. Balderas said a new audit will look at what he calls troubling risks to county funds in the coming years. The Albuquerque Journal reports the special audit is latest in a series of problems for Treasurer Manny Ortiz and

his investment officer, former treasurer Patrick Padilla. County officials say Ortiz and Padilla won’t acknowledge that actual and paper losses have put the county in a serious cash crunch. The pair have defended their bond investment practices and say they have made money. Staff and wire reports

City police seek man who fled car full of jewelry Police say stash of stolen goods included one piece worth $100,000 By Chris Quintana

The New Mexican

A suspected jewelry thief who fled from Santa Fe police officers and left behind a vehicle filled with necklaces, rings and bracelets — including a piece worth an estimated $100,000 — was being sought Thursday in connection with several crimes. Police were searching for Kenneth Martinez, 26, 1326 Maez Road, in connection with burglaries, a warrant charging failure to comply and, after Wednesday night, a charge of aggravated assault on a peace officer, according to a Santa Fe Police Department news release. Detectives spotted Martinez at about 8 p.m. Wednesday in the 2800 block of Cerrillos Road. But Martinez got into his vehicle, tried ramming a police car and then crashed into a curb, police say. He and his passenger, Melissa Carrillo, fled the scene on foot. Carrillo was arrested later that night. After searching Martinez’s vehicle, officers found a collection of stolen jewelry — turquoise necklaces, gold bracelets and watches, silver rings and other valuables. Police department spokeswoman Celina Westervelt said one piece alone was worth $100,000. Police have released images of the stolen jewelry, hoping some victims will identify their items. To prove ownership of the items, Westervelt said, people can bring in receipts, the initial police report they filed for the stolen goods or even pictures of themselves wearing the jewelry. Police plan to set up a public viewing of the goods, she said, but people can call 428-3710 to set up an individual viewing. Westervelt said police might be able to connect Martinez to other burglaries. So far, she said, officers have traced some items recovered from his car to three unsolved burglaries in the city. Martinez has a lengthy rap sheet, which most recently includes a June arrest on charges of receiving stolen property, aggravated assault on a peace officer, aggravated fleeing from a law-enforcement officer, resisting or obstructing an officer and possession of a controlled substance. He also has been found guilty of burglary, larceny and shoplifting, according to the New Mexico Courts online record system. Officers found Carrillo, 20, later Wednesday night and arrested her on a warrant charging failure to comply. New Mexico Courts online records show she entered a guilty plea to burglary in January 2013. She also is facing a felony count of possession of a controlled substance in state District Court. Police consider Martinez “armed and dangerous,” and they have asked that anyone with information about him call 428-3710.

36,000-square-mile range. WildEarth Guardians and dozens of other organizations and individuals petitioned Fish and Wildlife in 2004 to list the prairie dogs as endangered or threatened. The agency determined the listing wasn’t warranted, but a smaller group that included WildEarth Guardians challenged the finding. Fish and Wildlife later found that populations in parts of Colorado and New Mexico that are wetter and higher in elevations than prairie land were eligible for protection, primarily because of the effects

of sylvatic plague, a flea-borne bacterial disease. The U.S. District Court in Arizona said the agency could not divide the species and ordered a new review. Taylor Jones of WildEarth Guardians said the federal government has dodged its responsibility to protect a species that exists in 5 percent of its historic range. Arizona, New Mexico and Utah consider the prairie dogs a species of greatest conservation need, but that designation doesn’t provide any regulatory protection. The Fish and Wild-

life Service said states actively are managing prairie dog populations through agreements and strategies. In Santa Fe, developers must relocate Gunnison’s prairie dogs to an approved site before building.

rium, Espinar said. “If I’m Barney’s and I order those scarves, when they come in, I’ll look and see what the quality is. If it’s poor, I’ll email [the manufacturer] and have them picked up. We’re going to treat artists the same way — although in a more protected place.” The lab’s standards will be the same as Barney’s, she said, expecting quality products that are wrapped well, with no breakage, and expecting artists to communicate well with customers. Quality has different meanings in different cultures, she noted, but if folk artists “want to access the world market, quality control becomes a pillar of learning.” The alliance has hired Hilary Kilpatric, an accountant and former Peace Corps volunteer who has worked with weavers in Guatemala, to help provide immediate feedback to online artists. About 12 to 15 artists will participate in the startup. The market, which is currently looking for warehouse space, will

begin with a small inventory. “The idea is to learn without a huge investment by wholesaler or retailer,” Espinar said. The alliance also is planning a postmarket shopping opportunity to satisfy visitor feelings of buyers’ regret. It will feature some of the most popular items from the latest market. As alliance Director Shawn McQueen-Ruggeiro put it, “After the market, the shopping doesn’t have to stop.” Discussions also are underway about an online holiday boutique in October 2014. What makes the alliance different from other retailers, however, is, “We really think about the artists first,” McQueen-Ruggiero said. “We know them — the 700 artists and artists groups. We know know them, their families, their traditions. For us to figure out our role is really important. We’re defining it now.” Contact Anne Constable at 986-3022 or

Buster helped ease the suffering of the 14-year-old dog, who had cancer. Maxie died about two months ago, and the family was just getting back to a normal routine. “We just celebrated his second birthday on April 11,” she said of Buster. “It’s just heartbreaking, especially when someone is so young.”

Santa Fe High beats Los Alamos By Edmundo Carrillo The New Mexican

Taos, SFHS have plenty to prove

RIO RANCHO — Three teams from District 2AAAA were playing in the first round of the Class AAAA State Volleyball Tournament, but unfortunately, only two advanced to the quarterfinals today in the Santa Ana Star Center. That was because for the fourth time this season, the No. 11 Lady Hilltoppers of Los Ala-

mos and the No. 9 Demonettes of Santa Fe High squared off, this time in a first-round match. “You play somebody that many times, they learn your strengths and weaknesses,” said first-year Los Alamos head coach Robin Reynolds. Unfortunately for Reynolds, the Demonettes exposed his team’s weaknesses to capture a 17-25, 25-17, 25-14, 25-21 win to play No. 2 Roswell Goddard at

8 a.m. on Friday. The Demonettes (19-5 overall) were able to claim the victory in the end, but things were going to Lady Hilltoppers’ way early in the match. Santa Fe High head coach Sam Estrada was not pleased with the effort his players gave. He saw a different team that played the Lady Hilltoppers during last week’s district semifinal, which the Demonettes won

25-23, 25-21, 25-17. To Estrada, the Demonettes can be much better. “It’s stressful when the players aren’t playing to their full potential,” Estrada said. “They survived to make it to the next round, but I’m still waiting for them to play a solid game.” It didn’t happen this time. Los Alamos (13-9) jumped out to a 7-3 lead in Game 1, and

As Flavio Lopez says, it is what it is. The Taos football head coach has taken the high road when trying to make heads or tails of the state playoff seeding for Class AAA. His Tigers just completed an 8-1 regular season and won their first district championship Flavio Lopez in 15 years, yet they were handed the No. 5 seed and forced to play in this weekend’s first round. Taos will host No. 12 Hot Springs on Saturday afternoon. The winner gets a quarterfinal trip to No. 4 Bloomfield on Thanksgiving weekend. Other area teams in the AAA draw this week include No. 9 Las Vegas Robertson (at No. 8 Portales) on Friday night and No. 10 Pojoaque Valley (at No. 7 Albuquerque Academy) on Saturday afternoon. In AAAA, Santa Fe High makes its second straight trip to the postseason as the District 2AAAA champ. The Demons, seeded 12th, visit No. 5

After a harrowing Wednesday in which the volleyball program lost its head coach, Mary Bustos, to complications from amyloidosis, a disease in which substances called amyloid proteins build up in any tissue or organ, it made the hard journey of moving on without her. It started on Thursday with a warm reception from most of the crowd in the arena, including players from Pojoaque Valley, Ruidoso and Silver clapping as the Lady

NEW YORK — All those who marvel at Miguel Cabrera can only wonder what he might’ve done this year if completely healthy. Even so, Cabrera was a huge hit in Motown. Despite being hobbled by all sorts of ailments, the Detroit Tigers slugger won his second straight American League Most Valuable Player award Thursday, once again beating Angels outfielder Mike Trout by a comfortable margin. A season after winning baseball’s first Triple Crown in 45 years, Cabrera came back to lead the majors in hitting at .348 and finish second with 44 home runs and 137 RBIs. “I think this year was tougher because of the injuries,” he said on a conference call from the Miami area. “It was the last two months. It was tough to play through it,” he said. The eight-time All-Star missed

Colts rally from 14-down, beat Titans By Teresa M. Walker

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck scores a touchdown on an 11-yard run as Titans defensive end Derrick Morgan chases him during the third quarter of Thursday’s game in Nashville, Tenn. WADE PAYNE/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Indianapolis Colts just keep digging themselves into early holes, then proving Colts 30 they know how to come Titans 27 back and win. Donald Brown ran for two touchdowns, Andrew Luck added another and the Colts rallied yet again, this time beating the Tennessee Titans 30-27 on Thursday night after trailing 14-0 in the first quarter. “At the end of the day winning is what matters,” Luck said. “We were fortunate in this game to

survive our mistakes and have a chance to win. … But we know that’s got to be fixed.” Adam Vinatieri kicked three field goals, including a 50-yarder, and Coby Fleener had a careerhigh eight catches for 107 yards to help the Colts (7-3) bounce back quite nicely from a 38-8 home loss to St. Louis. They have yet to lose back-to-back games under coach Chuck Pagano and are 8-0 coming off a loss. “Obviously, starting out like that is something we’re all too familiar with,” Fleener said. “That’s something we have to work and get corrected.” The Colts are back in charge of the AFC South too, now having

beaten all three divisional opponents on the road. “We’re not worried about that yet,” Luck said. “We’re worried about this next game.” The Titans (4-6) lost their second straight and fifth in six games, blowing the big lead. Chris Johnson ran for two touchdowns and 70 yards in the first quarter, but had only 16 yards after that. “We’ve got to find that winning formula, whatever it is,” Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said. “We have to find a way to pull these games out at the end. It’s a tough locker room in there right now. That’s two in a row that kind of slipped away from us. Two big ones, two costly ones for us.”

Santa Fe Prep falls to Santa Rosa SCOREBOARD

By Chris Jackson

For the New Mexican

RIO RANCHO — The Santa Fe Prep girls volleyball team gave its all for three games, only to run out of steam in the fourth. Santa Rosa prevailed 26-24, 23-25, 26-24, 25-11 in the first round of the Class AA State Tournament at Rio Rancho Middle School on Thursday night. The Griffins (18-4) just did not have any answers for the smaller, quicker lady Lions (21-0) in the fourth game. “In that fourth game, I don’t know if it was not shaking off the mistakes or anything like that,” Santa Fe Prep coach Kiran Bhakta said. “They came to play tonight. After the performance we had [in pool play], we haven’t played like that in a long time and to show up against Ramah and Hatch Valley the way we did, we should have shown up like we did in the first three games tonight.” It was more mental than physical against Santa Rosa, Bhakta said. “We just need to get a little more focused,” he said. “My girls didn’t quit fighting. Even on the last couple of points they kept going in there. That’s what our team is usually like. “I’m proud even though we lost. This is our third year at state for a little 2-A school

and we got ranked as high as third.” The first two games featured long runs by both teams. The Lady Lions led the first game 8-3 before the Griffins rallied, only to see Santa Rosa hang on at the end. The second game was more of the same, with Prep leading 9-4 and then 18-14, before having to fend off Santa Rosa’s late charge. In the third game, neither team ever led by more than three points. The Lady Lions trailed 24-22 before rattling off four straight points to prevail. “They’ve got a lot of heart and they never say die,” Santa Rosa coach Breezy Gutierrez said. “They’re going to fight to the end.” The match was 5-5 early in the fourth game before Santa Rosa erupted on a 10-1 run to effectively put Prep away. “My girls just got motivated there, kill after kill after kill,” Gutierrez said. Despite the loss, Bakta sees better days ahead for his team. “I’ll only be losing those two seniors and now all of a sudden I’ll be coming back with six seniors,” he said. “Hopefully we’ll come back hopefully just as strong or stronger next year.” The Lady Lions will advance to face Bosque School (17-4) in the quarterfinals Friday at 1:15 p.m. In Class A action:

cloudcroFt 3, queStA 0 The Wildcats (17-3) were bowled over 25-16, 25-10, 27-25 by the Bears (14-9). Senior Kayla Derrick had nine kills and four aces to pace Cloudcroft, which advances to face Tatum in the quarterfinals Friday at 9:45 a.m. Questa did not really come to life until the third and final game, taking an early 9-4 lead. “We started [fighting back] too late,” Wildcats coach Jennifer Vialpando said. The Bears finally tied the game at 14-14, though they could never take more than a one-point lead. Cloudcroft called a final timeout with the game tied 23-23. Questa’s luck finally ran out over the final six points of the game, a tough ending for the team’s nine seniors. “It’s been really hard for us to just find each other,” Vialpando said. “But I think we did that in the third [game]. I honestly thought we had it.” Mccurdy 3, ANiMAS 2 The Lady Bobcats (17-5) overcame a Game 4 slump to pull out a, 18-25, 25-14, 25-19, 15-25, 15-11 win over the Lady Panthers to advance to an A quarterfinal at 9:45 a.m. against No. 2 Hagerman.

Just like in boxing, the Lady Hilltoppers were just looking for openings in the opponent’s defense. “We were trying to serve where the traffic was, and we were pretty successful at it,” Reynolds said. “You look for little things to take advantage of in volleyball.” The Lady Hilltoppers had a 14-10 lead in the second game before they were counterpunched by Santa Fe High.

and Arissa Collins. They have helped guide the players through the these trying times as they deal with their grief, while also trying to maintain the focus needed to continue their season. “The path that we’re on now, there are bumps in the road, but we will push through them as a team,” Collins said. Collins knows a little bit about that, having suffered through a tragedy of her own. She was the sole survivor of a car crash with a drunken driver that killed five family members in 2006. She said she had to draw strength for herself in that incident, but this is about her giving that strength to the players. “That’s what it’s about for me,” Collins said. Still, the effects of Mary Bustos’ death linger beyond just the West Las Vegas family. She coached several of the players at Las Vegas Robertson, and the Lady Cardinals wore green

ribbons in their hair in honor of their former coach. “Mary was a big part of everyone’s team,” said Alicia Arguello, a junior middle hitter for Robertson. “Especially all the biggest teams, she was a big part of everyone. It’s like a distraction. Your mind isn’t on the court.” Dawn C’ deBaca knows that feeling. The Albuquerque Volcano Vista head coach had Mary Bustos on her staff when she coached at West Las Vegas from 2001-2005. She was so shocked by the text she received Wednesday afternoon informing her of Mary Bustos’ death that she cried in front of her current players as they warmed up for practice. C’ deBaca said she always emphasized to her players that volleyball is a game to be enjoyed after all, but the events of Wednesday crystallized that in her mind. “It makes you put things into

perspective,” C’ deBaca said. “Yeah, this a game, this is supposed to be fun. It’s something I have said, not just recently, but throughout the season. These are serious things that happened. I know it really hurt me to see that happen.” In other first-round action: No. 7 AlBuquerque SANdiA PrePArAtory 3, No. 12 St. MichAel’S 0 The run in the state tournament was quick, but fruitful for the Lady Horsemen. While St. Michael’s ended its season with a 25-14, 25-12, 25-23 loss to the Lady Sundevils, head coach Steve Long felt his team learned a little bit about what the state tournament experience is like. He hopes the Lady Horsemen can build upon for next season, as they lose just two seniors have six underclassmen who will be a year older in 2014. “It’s a learning process, but we’ll be OK,” Long said. “We’ll be OK. We’ll be fighting pretty hard next year.”

Continued from Page B-5 congratulated them for their support. It was a small gesture from a team that was offered support and words of encouragement — and condolences — from everyone it met. “It means a lot, it really does,” said sophomore Deanna Bustos, a niece of Mary Bustos. “They are here supporting us, and they don’t have to be. They’re here for us, for Mary and for Mary’s family, and that means a lot.” But it didn’t mean that there weren’t tears shed during the day. Justin Bustos, Mary’s son, cried on the bench as the team waited to warm up. Father, David Bustos, was solemn and forlorn at times, but looked energized at other points during pool play action. Daughter Caelin Bustos, a senior setter/middle hitter, shed tears at the end of pool play and after beating the Lady Cardinals. “I thought it was the right thing for me to do, to play for her, to not quit,” Caelin said through tears. “I know she’d want me to be here because she’d want us to come out and fight and defeat like she knows we can do it. Because she believes in us more than anything.” The Lady Dons, the fifth seed in the tournament, showed that fighting spirit in pool play, rallying from an 11-6 deficit in their opening game against No. 12 St. Michael’s. The deficit was much larger in Game 2, as the Lady Horsemen had a 19-11 lead. West Las Vegas, though, got on a roll and reeled off the last 14 points of the game for the sweep. In the next set of games, against No. 4 Silver, the Lady Dons split, but lost on points, mainly due to a 25-13 loss in the opening game. While the Lady Dons lost their demanding, but loving coach, they gained another source of strength from assistant coaches Karli Salazar

Local results and schedules

5-1 swing the tie the game at 15-15. After that, the Demonettes closed the match out with a 10-2 run with six straight service points from Andrea Gonzales. “They got their timing back,” Reynolds said. The Demonettes did not lose the lead for the rest of the match and got off to a 9-3 start in the third game, where they kept the Lady Hilltoppers to only 14 points. “They played defense like nobody’s business,” Reynolds said. “They just didn’t let anything drop.” Los Alamos made things interesting by cutting the Demonettes’ lead to 22-18 in

the fourth and final game. The Lady Hilltoppers scored four points while the Demonettes were at match point, but it wasn’t enough to stave off the inevitable. Still, Estrada believes that if Santa Fe High plays a similar type of match, it might not be enough to overcome the Lady Rockets. Goddard is 16-5, and took Pool B to earn the firstround bye “We can’t play lethargically,” he said.

25-11, 25-23, 25-19 on Thursday. After slipping in the first game, Española Valley (15-7) rode on 10 straight service points from senior Merissa Trujillo to cruise to a win in Game 2. “She’s a serving specialist,” Lady Sundevil head coach Damon Salazar said. “That’s her only job, so I’m very proud of her.” If Española Valley beats Piedra Vista in the quarterfinals, they would have defeated the No. 1 team in the tournament, giving them easiest route to the championship, which is something that entices Salazar. “We’re playing for the 1-seed, so that’s kind of nice,” he said.

Prosecutors receive Winston case

No. 13 Memphis beats Austin Peay

Year-old sexual assault allegation connected to Florida State quarterback By Gary Fineout and Kareem Copeland The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — An assistant state attorney says prosecutors in Tallahassee did not receive information about an 11-month-old sexual assault allegation involving Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston until Tuesday. Tallahassee police investigated the Heisman Trophy contender in connection with a sexual assault that was reported nearly a year ago in an off-campus apartment. FSU records show the first report was made to campus police on Dec. 7 by a student at a dormitory. The investigation was handed over to Tallahassee police. The case was not given to prosecutors until this week. Assistant State Attorney Georgia Cappleman says normal procedure for criminal cases in Leon County calls for police to give information to prosecutors if there is evidence for an arrest, or if it is a “close call.” She says police do not tell prosecutors when they have decided against pursuing an arrest. A day after news of the case broke, jolting college football fans and casting uncertainty on second-ranked Florida State’s perfect season, there were mostly questions left unanswered. Tallahassee police, citing the ongoing investigation, aren’t saying much about the case as well, including why investigators waited until this week to hand over information about the case to local prosecutors. The Seminoles went back to work Thursday, preparing for a home game against Syracuse on Saturday. Coach Jimbo Fisher said Winston took every scheduled practice snap and performed as usual Wednesday and Thursday. He also said nothing has changed Winston’s status as a team leader. “He’s been great,” Fisher said. “He went out and practiced well, played well and eliminated clutter, from what I can

understand as far as distractions.” Fisher declined comment when asked directly about the investigation and would not divulge when he found out about the alleged incident. He did confirm that he spoke to the team about recent distractions. “We talk about what’s going on, our task at hand and control what we can control,” Fisher said. “Success brings a lot of clutter from other things. There’s always things that go on and you have to separate on-the-field and off-the-field and what you can control. Our guys are doing a nice job of that.” Fisher tried to avoid the topic, but the rest of the sports world has been focused on the Heisman Trophy candidate. Several questions remain. Why did it take so long for the police to notify the state attorney? How long has the university known and were any actions taken? Did police request an interview with Winston? For his part, Winston is only talking football. He spoke to the media for roughly five minutes on Wednesday night. University officials warned they would cut off the press conference if any-

one asked questions that weren’t strictly related to football. Timothy Jansen, the attorney representing Winston, has said his client did nothing wrong and he thought the investigation was over months ago. He said he has already handed over to prosecutors affidavits from two eyewitnesses. “When I spoke to the detective in February he told me the case was closed,” Jansen said. “I relayed that to my client and to university officials. I hadn’t heard another word until Monday.” Tallahassee police on Wednesday released a heavily-redacted two-page incident report that does not mention Winston by name, but says the incident took place between 1:30 and 2 a.m. last Dec. 7. It describes the suspect in the sexual assault case as being between 5-foot-9 and 5-11. Winston is listed by Florida State at 6-4. Jansen said he did not know why local police waited until this week to hand over their investigation to prosecutors. He speculated that media requests for the records may have played a role. The Tampa Bay Times reported Thursday it had asked for records last week.

Prove: Taos must avoid previous mistakes Continued from Page B-5 Las Cruces Centennial in Friday night’s opening round while Escalante, the 2-seed in Class A, hosts Capitan on Saturday afternoon in a rematch of last year’s state championship game. This one will be in the semifinals. Like most coaches this time of year, Lopez has a certain degree of tunnel vision regarding his own club’s playoff path. “I’ve been around long enough to know that nothing is surprising in the playoff seeding process,” he said. “Personally I think we could have gone higher, but there’s no sense worrying about it. We all know what we have to do.” For Taos, it means avoiding the same misstep it made in last year’s opening round. After beating Albuquerque Hope Christian in the regular season, the Tigers were sent packing with a lopsided loss to the Huskies at home.

Most of that Tigers team is back, as are the memories. With five straight wins to its credit, Taos is much better suited for the task at hand. “It’s why we’re in the weight room every morning at 5:30 in the spring, why we’re running track and keeping in shape,” Lopez says. “If [the NMAA] wants to seed us lower than we think we deserve, we’ve got to just go out and show everyone we can do this.” The same mentality exists at Santa Fe High, although for entirely different reasons. The bottom seed after a 4-6 regular season, they know they wouldn’t be here if not for earning the district’s automatic bid to the playoffs. “Fortunately for us, everyone is healthy for the first time almost all season,” says Santa Fe High head coach Ray Holladay. “We’ve been filling in at several spots almost every game. I honestly couldn’t tell you how much of

a difference it’s going to make, but at least our guys have the confidence of being on the field for the first time in what feels like forever.” The Demons will remain on the road with an upset of the Hawks and their vaunted no-huddle offense. They’ll head to No. 4 Los Lunas next week with a win. The winner of the PortalesRobertson game gets a trip to unbeaten top seed St. Michael’s in the AAA quarterfinals while No. 2 Ruidoso will get a visit from the Academy-Pojoaque game. Escalante is hoping for a second straight trip to the small-school title game. The likely opponent would be undefeated Hagerman, a team with seven shutouts and a defense that has allowed only 48 points all season. At this point, Holladay says, the name of the game is defense. So long as his club can line up against a runoriented offense, he feels his

Demons have a realistic shot despite the odds. “It’s all about matchups, he says. “If we are lucky enough to get a team that wants to run we’ll be OK.” Problem is, Centennial throws the ball about 40 percent of the time out of its no-huddle offense, a unit that took St. Michael’s down to the final play of a recent Horsemen victory at the Christian Brothers Athletic Complex. Santa Fe High has struggled against teams who throw the ball, often getting shredded by clubs that otherwise have difficulty generating any offense. Asked about it, Holladay gave the kind of answer most men in his profession give this time of year. “We’re district champs and we’re in the playoffs,” he says. “It’s progress. If we get beat by a team that does what it does better than we do, at least we got here. But we’re not going to give up.”

MVP: McCutchen didn’t expect landslide McCutchen said in Pittsburgh. “But I definitely didn’t expect several games after the break it to be a landslide with those because of a bad back, a sore other guys — Goldschmidt left hip flexor, a strained lower and Molina.

138 RBIs, was third. “I think all three guys deserve this trophy,” Cabrera said. Davis and Oakland third baseman Josh Donaldson each received a first-place vote. Cabrera took his third AL batting title in a row. He also drew a $1 million bonus for winning a second MVP during his current contract with the Tigers. No AL player has won three straight MVPs. Albert Pujols was the last repeat NL MVP winner in 2008 and 2009; Barry Bonds took four straight from 2001-04. The Tigers have virtually owned the major postseason awards during a three-year run of success. Justin Verlander was the MVP and Cy Young winner in 2011, Cabrera took the MVP last season and Detroit ace Max Scherzer won this year’s Cy Young Award on Wednesday.

“I’m on the right team,” Cabrera said. The 30-year-old third baseman from Venezuela also captured the AL MVP last year when he hit .330 with 44 homers and 139 RBIs. Cabrera topped Trout 22-6 in firstplace votes in that balloting. Trout hit .323 with 27 homers and 97 RBIs this year, stole 33 bases and led the AL in runs and walks. Cabrera clearly was baseball’s most dominant hitter for most of the season as the Tigers won their third straight AL Central crown. Voting for the BBWAA awards was done before the playoffs. Cabrera hit .262 with two homers and seven RBIs in 11 postseason games, and made a couple of key outs in Detroit’s six-game loss to Boston in the AL championship series.


Harden, Rockets withstand Anthony’s 45, top Knicks The Associated Press

NEW YORK — James Harden scored 36 points in his return to the lineup and the Houston Rockets withstood Carmelo Anthony’s 45 points to beat the New York Knicks 109106 Thursday night, giving Jeremy Lin another winning night at Madison Square Garden. Anthony had the highestscoring game in the NBA this season and grabbed 10 rebounds, but it wasn’t enough

for the Knicks in their fourth straight home loss. Chandler Parsons added 22 points and Lin had 21 for the Rockets, who beat the Knicks for the eighth straight time even on a mostly silent night from Dwight Howard, largely outplayed by Andrea Bargnani. Howard had just seven points with his 15 rebounds, though he did make a pair of free throws with 1:15 left that gave Houston a five-point lead.

Gen Next uncovers the best and worst restrooms at area high schools

for and by teens



n March 2006, Generation Next sent its staff of high school journalists out to determine how clean their schools’ bathrooms were. Now, some seven and a half years later, here’s what our staff of a dozen local high-schoolers have to say about their bathrooms, based on repeated visits conducted over the course of about a month. In 2006, Santa Fe Prep’s bathrooms ranked near the top (“a majestic find,” the staff report noted in 2006) while the bathroomgoing experience at Capital High School was considered “frustrating.” The staff couldn’t get to all the campus bathrooms this time around, so forgive us for skipping Monte del Sol, the Academy for Technology and the Classics and the Santa Fe Indian School, for instance.

Santa Fe Preparatory At Santa Fe Prep, the women’s bathrooms are one of the warmest places on campus — which is nice, given winter is coming. Prep’s bathrooms remain luxurious, generally well-stocked with paper towels in the dispensers, toilet paper in every stall and copious amounts of soap. There is hardly any graffiti in any of the bathrooms, and most importantly, there is a door on every stall. In terms of scent, the bathrooms in the administrative building always smell the best whereas student bathrooms and locker rooms tend to have an ongoing stench. As for the boys bathrooms at Prep, how the mighty have fallen. Prep’s once top-tier restrooms have stumbled since 2006. All that is left of the urinal cakes in the main high school bathroom are the plastic shells, and the waterless urinals in the library smell foul. The hands-free towel dispensers often don’t seem to work. Toilet paper and towel debris litter the floors and crude scratch graffiti mars the stall walls. At least, the men’s room in the administrative wing is pristine: Prep is definitely keeping its priorities straight here.


Lauren Joseph, Santa Fe High school “Not exactly. It seems to have some serious problems. Like graffiti and … just trash and it’s unsanitary. It doesn’t have enough feminine product disposal units.”

Academy of Larragoite

Mariana Padilla, St. Michael’s High School “Uh. Yes. Well, actually, I think they should use different air fresheners because they smell pretty bad.”

Desert Academy The bathrooms in the administrative building of Desert Academy are probably among the nicest bathrooms you’ve ever visited. These bathrooms feature polished, rose-colored marble walls and serve as the only student bathrooms on campus. Both the boys’ and girls’ bathrooms are generally clean despite the expected papertowel scraps that you can usually find scattered on the floor around the garbage cans — which are generally overflowing with trash. (Over time, extra garbage cans have been added to the rooms, but the paper scraps still show up on the floor.) The mirrors remain clean and shiny and are accentuated by a row of bulbs running across the top edge. The stalls are roomy and completely free of graffiti — which, we suspect, is a rare bathroom occurrence. Visitors can nearly always count on stocked paper towels, toilet paper and soap, and most importantly, all of the sinks and toilets are functional and clean. But Desert doesn’t get a free pass: The lack of student bathrooms makes for a somewhat claustrophobic feeling — particularly after school when many students are trying to get changed into sports gear for athletics. The fact that these bathrooms are not located in the main classroom building (the bathrooms there are adult-only) means time lost as students have to walk to and from them. In addition, a common complaint of the girls bathroom is the smell, although to be

Harlin Pierce, Santa Fe Waldorf “Yes. They’re very clean, but they smell bad. I wish they had things that we put in the urinals to make them smell better.”

At The Academy of Larragoite, the boys’ room can sometimes feel like you have stepped into an Arctic climate — though this may be because there always seems to be an open window on the wall of one of the stalls. The bathroom is pretty simple: two stalls, three urinals and three sinks, all of which remain fairly clean. The dispensers are always armed with foaming soap. You can always find a few pen marks on the wall, people sometimes neglect to flush the urinals, and at times, the air dryers seem to not care if you get your hands dry or not. Beyond that, it’s not an unpleasant experience. As for the girls’ bathroom, it is equally clean and functional, though the air dryer there also has its problems.

Capital High School

Santa Fe Waldorf School At Santa Fe Waldorf School, the boys and girls bathrooms couldn’t be more different — although both receive the complaint of smelling bad. The boys’ bathroom is best described as being “broken.” One of the sinks is not sturdy and is close to falling off the wall, while one of the toilet seats remains cracked. The stalls are fragile, making it hard to close them all the way. On the other hand, the girls bathroom is completely functional, and the soap and paper-towel dispensers are always fully stocked. There is a spacious arrangement to the room and a shelf that is a benefit when it comes to storing hand-carried items. The floors are covered with an ugly tiling that is nonetheless always clean, and the room is well-lit and has one window. There is no sign of graffiti anywhere.

Zacciah Hanson, N.M. School for the Arts “Yeah. I’m the only guy who uses the middle stall, though, so it’s pretty shiny to me. I consider our bathrooms to be very clean.”

towels in both. The smell (always a concern with bathrooms) is not horrendous, but it’s not exactly pleasant either, and the floors are sometimes wet and/or dirty. The floor behind the clothing racks is covered with dust and the remains of spilt drinks, along with an assortment of missing socks and such. Graffiti is rare though you can find a few “everyone is beautiful”-type scribbles here and there. After one effort to clean and arrange clothes, books and drinks on one of the racks, the area was almost immediately restored to its former disarray. As for the boys’ rooms, they may need some attention. Unpleasant smells remain from some sort of pumping issues and many bathroom stalls have no locks. The temperatures of both bathrooms can vary from extremely warm to freezing cold, and one sink isn’t connected to — well, anything. The paper towel holder in one room is always jammed and you can often find graffiti. Still, they are usually clean. As one boy put it, it’s not like urinating in heaven, but at least it’s not like washing your hands in one of the Saw horror movies.

Veronica Gonzales, MASTERS Program “Somewhat. Well they’re clean. Sometimes they smell and they need to have more paper towels.”

Dylan Moon, Desert Academy “Yeah definitely. They are very clean. Well we have janitor staff that take care of everything and do a good job.” COMPILED BY TILCARA WEBB GENERATION NEXT

fair restrooms rarely come off smelling like a bed of roses. Both the girls and boys bathrooms have at least one stall with a broken lock, and one light fixture in the boys’ room is missing, which leaves a hole in the ceiling above.

St. Michael’s High School St. Michael’s High School bathrooms range from mostly unused with slight smells and flickering lights to high-traffic rooms with stalls that actually close and lock. While some of the school’s bathrooms have abundant hand soap, paper towels and toilet paper, others are poorly deprived in at least one of those three departments. Because the layout of the restrooms were originally intended for boys only (St. Michael’s was a boys-only school for some time), the girls and boys bathrooms are not always parallel like you would find in most high schools, so the odds are that the bathroom closest to you is for the opposite gender. The nicest boys bathroom is often closed due to an incident in which an unknown perpetrator defecated in a urinal for reasons that are best left unexplained. The girls locker room carries the scent of strange perfumes and hair products and is often overrun by duffel bags and clothes, which is to be expected.

N.M. School for the Arts To be fair about the bathrooms at New Mexico School for the Arts, keep in mind they also double as changing rooms for those in both physical education and theater classes. There are two girls bathrooms in the building, and it is not uncommon for there to be a shortage of paper

The report from Capital High School is short and not sweet. The boys restrooms in the main building are pretty unsanitary, and a lot of toilets remain unflushed — a poor reflection on the students, not the staff. As for the girls restrooms, you can often find a nearly suffocating scent of various perfumes and unflushed toilets. Sometimes the hand dryers work and sometimes not, and the ceiling often has some paper towels stuck on it.

Santa Fe High School The bathrooms at Santa Fe High School represent chapters of passage in a storybook: Some are joyous, some fiery, some angry, some neutral — and some are clean and some are not. These chapters all get woven together, binding students’ lives and memories for a long time. Funny how decay and destruction can play a hand in that sort of thing. The bathrooms really are a reflection of character through the way students themselves treat the environment. And here’s a word to the wise: Be careful with gossip, because a lot of secrets may be revealed on the bathroom walls there. The restrooms rank from spotless to filthy. A germaphobe may wish to head for some of the campus’s cleaner facilities. The library’s lavatories have a reputation for being spotless, with powerful hand dryers, clean floors, sufficient lighting, and stall doors that are both intact and can lock. The same can not be said of the bathrooms located on the top floor of the gymnasium. In the ladies’ room there, you can find grease on the floor tiles, profane artwork and permanent-ink scribblings, a frequently-pungent odor, and a lack of soap, all adding up to an overall gloomy environment. The boys restroom there mirrors the girls in these areas, so at least there’s a sense of equality. The situation is not as bad in the bathrooms in the Academic Building, but you can still find vulgar language on the walls and unflushed toilets. The restrooms in the Business Center, Science Building and Activity Center are cleaner, though some do exhibit signs of vandalism, such as the large orange “mural” in the women’s restroom in the Business Center. There is usually enough toilet paper and soap as well as functioning stalls in these bathrooms. To be fair, Santa Fe High encompasses a huge area of campus space so the janitorial staff may simply be overwhelmed.

Small schools foster student athletes By Keifer Nace Generation Next


espite New Mexico’s small number of professional teams, our state maintains a cultural love for its athletes. Team sports, especially at the school level, help teach the values of camaraderie, sportsmanship and self-confidence. The New Mexico Activities Association governs middle school and high school activities around the state — everything from choir and debate teams to basketball and football. In order to maintain fair competition, the NMAA created a class system where schools with similar student enrollment play against likesized schools. There are six classes with the largest being AAAAA and the smallest being B. Because the bigger schools have a larger pool of students, it is often believed that they have more athletic talent and a more competitive edge. Playing volleyball and basketball with a Class B school — Waldorf High School — has broken this stereotype for me. Despite our small numbers — 20 athletes participating in five sports — I find myself surrounded by talented athletes. In the past two years, three of our teams made it to the state playoffs and two former students are now playing at the college level. Our teams often compete against larger schools, and it is common to catch their players’ condescending stares. These larger schools often start games with an air of overconfidence, yet later they are surprised to find we can give them a competitive match and sometimes even prevail. There are challenges when playing with a Class B school. Finding a consistent number of players to fill teams can be difficult. Sometimes there are not enough players to even create a full team, and that can be discouraging. But small-school athletics allows inexperienced players to become stars within a short period of time. The rookie commonly plays in varsity games, enabling him/her to gain needed skills fast. At larger schools, these athletes would likely play on the junior varsity or C teams. Tyrel Wilding, a basketball and football player for the Class B New Mexico School for the Deaf, believes it is easier to participate on a small-school team because of this lack of players. This provides a good opportunity for him to both develop his skills and be recognized by his coaches. The most unique feature of smallschool athletics is the strong camaraderie of the team. More experienced athletes are always willing to help younger players. Coaches are able to work with athletes individually, helping them improve their abilities. On a small team, every player is significant, and each player is acknowledged as a MVP. Teammates form bonds that flourish both on and off the court. No matter how big or small a team is, all athletes share the same respect for the game they are playing. Being a smallschool athlete has given me the opportunity to explore America’s love of competitive sports. Keifer Nace is a Junior at the Santa Fe Waldorf School. Contact her at

Husband can’t live with his wife’s junk

Dear Annie: My wife and I have been married for 30 years. When our oldest son left for college, my wife began using his bedroom for storage. It gradually filled with clothes, papers and things my wife bought from TV shopping shows. Soon, there was barely a path to the bed. It happened again when our second child left. Now both bedrooms are jammed so full that you can barely open the doors. Our attic is overflowing, and we rent two storage spaces. My wife is now stacking stuff in our bedroom. I cannot get her to sort through things. She says she will do it “when the weather is better” or “when I have time,” but she never does. I fear my wife has some form of OCD. I am considering tossing stuff myself the next time she takes a trip to visit one of our children. If I throw away the junk, how will she react? I cannot live like this. — Drowning in Junk Dear Drowning: Your wife is a hoarder. It’s possible this was kicked into high gear by the stress of her children leaving the nest, but if it is getting progressively worse, she needs to seek treatment. However, unless she agrees to it beforehand, we don’t recommend you toss things out while she is away. Instead, call your doctor and ask for a referral to a mental health specialist. You also can contact the International OCD Foundation ( for more information. Dear Annie: For some reason, it has become common for people to bring their dogs when visiting, even if the visit is for as little as an hour. Some people won’t come if they cannot bring the dog. Please print my list of what not to do when visiting with your dog: u Do not allow your dog to jump on my furniture. u If your dog does his business outside, clean up his mess.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH You might feel as if you are on the right path, but several people seem to feel that they know better. Tonight: Be aware of a loved one; he or she needs your time. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Your efforts are appreciated, though a financial decision could worry you. Initiate a conversation in the near future about this matter. Tonight: Choose something relaxing. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You are full of get-up-and-go. You happily will help others out, brainstorm for solutions and generally be accessible. How nice! Tonight: Make sure to include a special person in your plans. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH You could be taken aback by what is happening on the homefront. You still might want to seize the moment to open up a related concern. Tonight: Head home first. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Speak up and express your opinion, even if it might not make you popular. Understanding evolves once a discussion begins. Tonight: Confirm a get-together before you go.

u Do not let your dog eat off of my china or snatch food from the table. u Do not expect me to put my cats outside because they do not get along with your dog. u If your dog is outside, do not let him scratch at my door or windows. uJust because I permit you to bring your dog, do not assume it is because I really like the animal. It is solely because I value your friendship more than I dislike your dog. I never let my children misbehave at someone’s house, and I expect your dogs to behave equally well. I used to have dogs, but I would never dream of taking them to someone else’s home unless specifically invited to do so. — Anonymous Dear Anonymous: Some folks consider their animal companions to be their “children” and expect others to treat them accordingly. But this is an unwarranted assumption. It is important to first ask whether it is OK to bring a pet, and if the answer is “no,” respond graciously and make other arrangements. Dear Annie: You recently published a letter from “A Lucky and Appreciative Married Man” and suggested that any reader who wanted to give the impression that they wrote it do so. My husband circled the column and left it out for me to see with a handwritten note saying he didn’t write it but “should have.” It made me stop to appreciate that he really means it when he frequently tells me how lucky he is. We’ve been together for “only” 25 years, and it has been more than wonderful. The trials and tribulations have been nothing compared to the good times and memories. I hope the next 25 years don’t go by as fast. It takes two to make a relationship work. As the wife of another lucky man, I am fortunate to have such a great partner in this life. — Staatsburg, N.Y.
