Heinrich rises as a leading NSA foe N.M. senator, who once supported program, now breaks rank as opponent By Ali Watkins

McClatchy Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON — Last May, Senate Intelligence Committee rookie Martin Heinrich was just settling into his new Senate office, five floors above the committee’s fiercely guarded headquarters — finally wrapping his head around some of the intelligence matters he’d recently been Martin tasked to oversee Heinrich — when Edward Snowden happened. Suddenly, the world was filled with news of National Security Agency surveillance programs whose scope Heinrich had only begun to grasp. “All of that came to a head very quickly,” said Heinrich, who’d attended his first intelligence briefing just six months before Snowden’s leak of documents exposed the NSA’s massive collection of Americans’ cellphone and Internet data. “I started to realize that the program was much more expansive than my assumption when I was in the House.”

Retail businesses have been especially hard hit the last few years, as competition from online sales has whittled away revenues of brick-and-mortar stores. The electronics front has been especially hurt — particularly in smaller cities where there are specialty electronics stores such as Best Buy. With appliances and mattresses, Baillio’s catered to middle-class buyers who needed midpriced products, often with delivery or installation. And although pricing at Baillio’s was often the same of better than that at chain stores, the bigger retailers — with more purchasing power and larger advertising budgets — often had the advantage.

Baca said Friday was a stressful day for the family, and that Jack Baillio did not want to talk with The New Mexican.

cated tactics for either impersonating victims or luring them to give up more sensitive information, according to security experts. “These criminals are building up dossiers on individuals,” said Avivah Litan, a fraud and security analyst at Gartner, a research firm. “Let’s say they have Mary Jane. Now they’ve got her email, her name and her address, and now they have her credit card. So now she’s easier to target.” The Target breach already ranks as one of the worst ever.

from Nov. 27 to Dec. 15. On Friday, the company said a new group of 70 million customers — some of whom might also have had their card data stolen — have had their personal information compromised, as well. The full extent of the attack is still unknown as Target continues its investigation, although the total number of shoppers affected by the attack may be more than 100 million, according to Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder.

Chemical spill stymies W.Va. capital In brief

Proposed Medicare drug change stirs access worries

By Brendan Farrington and Jonathan Mattise The Associated Press

CHARLESTON, W.Va. chemical spill left the water for 300,000 people in and around West Virginia’s capital city stained blue-green and smelling like licorice, with officials saying Friday it was unclear when it might be safe again to even take showers and do laundry. Federal authorities began investigating how the foaming agent escaped a chemical plant and seeped into the Elk River. Just how much of the chemical leaked into the river was not yet known. Officials are working with the company that makes the chemical to determine how much can be in the water without it posing harm to residents, said West Virginia American Water President Jeff McIntyre. Officials and experts said the chemical, even in its most concentrated form, isn’t deadly. No more than six people have been brought into emergency rooms with symptoms that may stem from the chemical, and none was in serious or critical condition, said State Department of Health & Human Resources Secretary Karen L. Bowling. The company where the leak occurred, Freedom Industries, discovered Thursday morning about 10:30 a.m. that the chemical was leaking from the bottom of a storage tank, said its president, Gary Southern. Southern said the company worked all day and through the night to remove

the chemical from the site and take it elsewhere. Southern said he didn’t think the chemical posed a public danger. He also said the company didn’t know how much leaked. State officials started investigating Thursday when people complained about an odor coming from near the company’s river terminal. Inspectors found a leaking above-ground tank at the site just after 11 a.m. and realized that no one was trying to contain the spill, according to officials at the Department of Environmental Protection. The spill brought West Virginia’s most populous city and nearby areas to a virtual standstill, closing schools and offices

and even forcing the Legislature to cancel its business for the day. Officials focused on getting water to people who needed it, particularly the elderly and disabled. “If you are low on bottled water, don’t panic because help is on the way,” Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said. The governor said there was no shortage of bottled water, and that officials were working to get water to those who need it. The Federal Emergency Management Agency also planned to deliver more than a million liters of water from nearby Maryland. However, it appeared that some level of panic already had set in to some degree. At the Kroger grocery store in the

shadow of a DuPont plant along the Kanawha River, people scrambled in the aisles to find bottled water. Freedom Industries was ordered to stop storing chemicals in areas where they could flow into the containment dike that failed in Thursday’s leak, said state Department of Environmental Protection spokesman Tom Aluise. The primary component in the foaming agent that leaked is the chemical 4-methylcyclohexane methanol. The chemical is water-soluble, meaning it cannot be removed with surface booms that are sometimes effective in capturing spilled oil.

Utah man would leave family to colonize Mars Pilot for CareFlight in Truth or Consequences, N.M., vies for spot on Mars One By Mark Saal

Standard-Examiner

FARMINGTON, Utah — Ken Sullivan, a Farmington resident, is one of eight Utahns who recently got a bit closer to their ultimate dream of one day colonizing Mars. Sullivan is one of 1,058 people worldwide, chosen from a pool of more than 200,000 applicants, who were recently informed that they passed the initial screening process and are in the running to participate in the Mars One project, a nonprofit private venture to establish a human settlement on Mars. These hopefuls will eventually be whittled down to a couple dozen folks who will train to be among the first four-member crew to leave for Mars in 2025. Sullivan first heard about the project last August, when he saw a story on the Internet about the open application process for Mars One. “I became enthralled with it,” Sullivan said of the project. “I’d always had an interest in going into space, like most children, and this really spurred that.”

Ken Sullivan, left, sits with his family in their home in Farmington, Utah. With him, left to right, are Kaitlyn, 12; Kaunner, 3; Tana, 6 months; and wife, Becky. Not pictured is Sullivan’s oldest daughter, Jocelyn, 13. MARK SAAL/STANDARD-EXAMINER

Born and raised in Utah, the 38-year-old Sullivan graduated from Woods Cross High School and then attended Dixie State College. He became interested in EMS training, and eventually moved to Salt Lake City to work for an ambulance company. “But then I thought it would be more fun to fly an ambulance than to drive one,” he said. So Sullivan first became a helicop-

ter mechanic, and then began flying the machines. Today, he’s the lead pilot for CareFlight, an air ambulance service based out of Truth or Consequences, N.M. He commutes there from Utah, on a seven-days-on, sevendays-off schedule. Sullivan applied for a spot on Mars One — along with a couple hundred thousand other Martian wannabes — and on Dec. 30 got the news that he’d made the first cut. Ah, but there’s a catch: It’s a one-way ticket — those selected will go to live on Mars for the rest of their lives. Oh yes, and one more catch, too: Sullivan is married, with children — four of them, ranging in age from 13 years to 6 months. Sullivan’s wife, Becky, says her husband is “obsessed with this Mars thing,” but she’s trying to keep it all in perspective. “I’m not worrying about it until it gets serious,” she says. “If I think about it too much, I get upset. I’m trying to be optimistic and not freak out.” But in the final analysis, she says she supports her husband’s decision. Two of the couple’s four children are too young to understand, but the older two, from Sullivan’s first marriage — Jocelyn, 13, and Kaitlyn, 12 — understand all too well. “They don’t want me to go,” Sullivan says.

WASHINGTON — In a move that some fear could compromise care for Medicare recipients, the Obama administration is proposing to remove special protections that guarantee seniors access to a wide selection of three types of prescription drugs. Advocates for patients are sharply criticizing the idea, but the Medicare prescription benefit’s first administrator says greater availability of generic drugs nowadays may allow for some protections to be safely eased. The three classes of drugs — widely used antidepressants, antipsychotics and drugs that suppress the immune system to prevent the rejection of a transplanted organ — have enjoyed special “protected” status since the launch of the Medicare prescription benefit in 2006. In a proposal published Friday in the Federal Register, the administration called for removing protected status from antidepressants, antipsychotics and immunosuppressant drugs.

Virgin Galactic spaceship makes successful flight MOJAVE, Calif. — Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo has made its third rocket-powered supersonic flight in the Mojave Desert, soaring to a record 71,000 feet. The company says the reusable space vehicle was carried by airplane to 46,000 feet Friday and then released. The craft used its rocket motor the rest of the way to reach its highest altitude to date. SpaceShipTwo and its two-member crew then glided to a safe landing in the desert north of Los Angeles. Virgin Galactic says the 10-minute test flight moves the company closer to its goal of flying paying passengers into space. No date has been set for the first commercial flight but hundreds of would-be tourists have made down payments for the chance to fly.

Food stamps at pot shops banned under Colorado bill DENVER — Food stamps for a pot brownie? It’s an urban myth in Colorado, but state lawmakers want to make sure that doesn’t happen. A bill proposed this week by several Republicans would add marijuana dispensaries to liquor stores, gun shops and casinos as places where recipients of public assistance payments and food stamps can’t use their electronic benefits cards to access cash. There haven’t been any reports of public EBT cards being used at marijuana dispensaries. But lawmakers say pot shops should be added to the law to make clear it’s not legal. “We need this bill, if for nothing else, as a statement,” said Rep. Jared Wright, R-Grand Junction.

On a vote of 291 to 122, more than five dozen Democrats joined with all voting Republicans to approve a measure that would require the Department of Health and Human Services to notify affected users of any potential breach on a state or federal exchange within two business days. The White House said the proposal would create “unrealistic and costly paperwork requirements” that wouldn’t improve the safety or security of the site’s users. The Associated Press

Emails: Port Authority feuded over bridge closures Documents do not link Christie in scheme to exact political revenge By Angela Delli Santi and Geoff Mulvihill The Associated Press

TRENTON, N.J. — Officials squabbled over media leaks and worried about bad publicity in the days after lane closings near the George Washington Bridge caused huge traffic jams that now appear to have been politically orchestrated by members of Gov. Chris Christie’s administration, documents released Friday show. In the documents, officials appointed by Christie seemed more concerned about the political fallout than the effects of the gridlock in the town of Fort Lee during four mornings in September. The thousands of pages were released by a New Jersey legislative committee investigating the scandal, which could haunt Christie’s expected run for president in 2016. The docu-

ments mostly involve the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the agency that runs the bridge. Lawmakers are looking into allegations that Christie loyalists engineered the tie-ups to punish the Democratic mayor of Fort Lee for not endorsing Christie for re-election. The documents show that the traffic mess created tension between New York and New Jersey appointees at the Port Authority, with the New York side angrily countermanding the lane closings. In the correspondence, Port Authority chairman David Samson, a Christie appointee, suggested that the authority’s executive director, Patrick Foye, who was appointed by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, had leaked to a reporter an internal memo ordering an end to the lane closings. Samson called that possibility “very unfortunate for NY/NJ relations.” On Thursday, Christie moved to contain the damage from the scandal, firing his deputy chief of staff, cutting ties to one of his chief political advisers and apologizing for the traffic jams.

Wednesday and Friday do not implicate him. The latest documents contain several emails from Port Authority media relations staff to higher-ups reporting on calls from reporters with questions about the closings. The agency did not respond to those calls. It was Foye’s Sept. 13 email that ordered the lanes reopened that generated deep discussion. In it, Foye called the decision to close the lanes “abusive” and added, “I believe this hasty and ill-advised decision violates federal law.” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie Bill Baroni, the Christie-appointed leaves City Hall on Thursday in Fort deputy director who has since Lee after apologizing to Mayor Mark resigned, forwarded a copy of the Sokolich.

In recent weeks, there have been questions about the whether the closings were part of a legitimate study. The newly released documents show that there was, in fact, a traffic study that was done, or at least a preliminary one. Two versions turned up in the documents — one was six pages and the other 16. Both were dated Sept. 12, the day before the lanes reopened. The documents include study findings that Baroni gave to lawmakers at a hearing last year: When the lanes were closed, the main bridge traffic moved a bit faster, but local traffic had major delays. How to deal with the fallout from the traffic jams became an issue. In an Oct. 9 email exchange under the subject “morning clips,” Philippe Danielides, a senior adviser at the Port Authority, asked David Wildstein, a Christie appointee at the agency who has since resigned, “Has any thought been given to writing an op-ed or providing a statement about the GWB study? Or is the plan just to hunker down and grit our way through it?” “Yes and yes,” Wildstein replied.

Janet Yellen, who will take over as Fed chairman next month, “is probably scratching her head looking at the report,” said Sun Wong Sohn, an economics professor at the University of California’s Smith Business School. Certainly many economists were. Some predicted that the job gain would be revised up in the coming months. The government adjusts each month’s jobs figure in the following two months as more companies respond to its survey. Few analysts saw the sharp slowdown as the beginning of a much weaker trend. “There is a good possibility this is just a one-shot deal that could either get revised away or made up for in next month’s release,” Scott Anderson, chief economist at Bank of the West, said in a note to clients. Cold weather affected the report in several ways. Con-

struction companies, which stop work during bad weather, cut 16,000 jobs, the most in 20 months. And the average workweek dipped as more people worked part time. Michael Hanson, an economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, estimated that all told, the cold weather lowered hiring by about 75,000 jobs. Perhaps as surprising as last month’s weak job growth was the flood of people — 347,000 — who stopped looking for jobs. The proportion of people either working or looking for work fell to 62.8 percent, matching a nearly 36-year low.

Holder: U.S. to honor Utah gay marriages Attorney general says couples still eligible for all federal benefits By Sari Horwitz

The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. intervened in the legal battle over gay marriage in Utah on Friday and announced that same-sex marriages that took place in Utah are considered legal under federal law even though state officials will not recognize those unions. In a videotaped announcement, Holder said that although a recent administrative step by the Supreme Court “cast doubt” on same-sex marriages performed in Utah, those couples are still eligible for all federal benefits. “These families should not be asked to endure uncertainty regarding their status as the litigation unfolds,” Holder said. “In the days ahead, we will continue to coordinate across the federal government to ensure the timely provision of every federal benefit to which Utah couples — and couples throughout the country are entitled — regardless of whether they are in same-sex or opposite-sex marriages. And we will continue to provide additional information as soon as it becomes available.” Holder said that the Justice Department has been working since

last June to implement the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in United States v. Windsor holding that Americans in same-sex marriages are entitled to equal protection and equal treatment under the law. The ruling required the federal government to recognize same-sex marriages from states where they are legal. “This ruling marked a historic step toward equality for all American families,” Holder said. “And since the day it was handed down, the Department of Justice has been working tirelessly to implement it in both letter and spirit, moving to extend federal benefits to married same-sex couples as swiftly and smoothly as possible.” Legally married couples are entitled to a number of federal benefits, including the ability to jointly file their federal income taxes. In its historic decision, however, the Supreme Court did not address the fundamental question of whether state bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional. On Dec. 20, U.S. District Judge Robert Shelby in Salt Lake City ruled that Utah’s ban on same-sex marriage violated the guarantee of equal protection and due process under the Constitution. More than 1,300 same-sex couples rushed to get married in the 17 days that followed. “These 1,360 Utah couples are married, plain and simple, and they should be afforded every right

and responsibility of marriage,” said Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender organization. On Jan. 6., the Supreme Court halted Utah’s same-sex marriages, staying Shelby’s decision pending appeal and putting the marriages in legal limbo. On Wednesday, Utah Gov. Gary Herbert’s office sent a memo to state officials saying Utah would not consider same-sex marriages lawful, as it appealed Shelby’s ruling. But on Thursday, Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes paved the way for Holder’s announcement by telling all Utah county attorneys and clerks that the same-sex marriages that took place between Dec. 20 and Jan. 6 were recognized as legal at the time of the ceremony. Reyes recommended that clerks provide marriage certificates to all couples married during that period, saying that this would allow same-sex couples to have proper documentation in states that do recognize same-sex marriage. Herbert, a Republican, said Friday he was not surprised by Holder’s announcement. Utah will continue providing federal services to samesex couples, Herbert indicated in a statement. But he added that “state agencies are directed and will continue to comply with state laws when providing state services.” While civil rights groups

applauded Holder’s actions, the National Organization for Marriage, a group that works against the legalization of same sex marriage, criticized the Obama administration for having “no regard for the Constitution and the rule of law.” “It is outrageous that the Justice Department would move so brazenly and publicly to undermine Utah’s standing constitutional provision regulating marriage as the union of one man and one woman,” said Brian Brown, National Organization for Marriage’s president. “It is the right of the states to determine marriage, and the voters and legislature of Utah have done just that.” The socially conservative state’s large Mormon population is particularly opposed to homosexuality. About three-fifths of Utah’s residents are Mormon, according to a Pew Religion and Public Life survey, and nearly two in three Mormons in 2011 said society should discourage homosexuality, while about one in three of the overall United States said so, a Pew poll found. Equal rights for same-sex couples has been a high priority for Holder. Officials close to the attorney general said he felt vindicated by the Supreme Court’s Defense of Marriage Act decision after a long and sometimes contentious debate in the Justice Department about how to deal with the law that had denied federal benefits to gay men and lesbians.

Expo: Event to include live music, fashion show Continued from Page A-1 ager for the Courtyard by Marriott in Santa Fe, which is hosting the event, said he started planning the expo more than four months ago, before New Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled gay marriage constitutional. Silva said the hotel wanted to reach out to this segment of the population that is planning weddings. Response has been “overwhelming,” he said. Many of the vendors are already serving the LGBT community, he added, and some of the people who have told him they will attend the event are already married but haven’t yet held a celebration. The event includes music and a fashion show. The vendors say same-sex couples are looking for many of the same things on their wedding day as heterosexual couples — with some tweaking. Vicky Speer of Absolute Entertainment, which books music for weddings, said popular songs for the first dance are “Marry Me” by Arro Verse (“for once I can be the real me, down on bended knee”), which was released after Barack Obama came out in support of marriage equality, “Nothin’ But Love” by Brendan James, “Partners for Life” by Jimmy Roland and the rap song “SameLove” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. But “Love is love,” Speer said, and “it’s always about the bride and groom or bride and bride or groom and groom.” Richard Bell of the Santa Fe Human Rights Alliance, which will benefit from ticket sales at the door, said the expo is a place for people interested in LGBT marriages to get information on gayfriendly companies and services. He said that since the state Supreme Court decision, he has been getting calls almost daily from people who would like to get married in Santa Fe and want to know “if I know someone who would marry them, or where to have the reception.” Hotel Albuquerque has planned a similar expo for May. Such events are popular all over the

country. According to rainbowweddingnetwork. com, there are expos coming up later this month in Jersey City, N.J., and in Baltimore, and in February in Tacoma, Wash. However, in some places, Bell noted, “an LGBT individual can’t find someone to provide the cake for their wedding or a hall for the reception.” Although Santa Fe is known as being open to gay people, not all businesses in the state happily serve same-sex couples. A New Mexico photographer and her husband, for example, are appealing a decision by the state Supreme Court that they violated the state’s Human Rights Act by refusing to photograph a same-sex couple’s commitment ceremony because of the studio owners’ Christian religious beliefs. Similar cases have arisen in Colorado and Washington. Among the other vendors at Saturday’s expo is M & J Bridal Boutique, based at the Santa Fe Place mall. Maria Escamilla, daughter of owner Maribel Cardona, said the biggest difference between straight and gay weddings is that many lesbians choose tuxedos — but not all. Other women choose “white and ivory dresses, like any other bride,” she said. The fashion show the shop is organizing for the event will include gay and straight models and men dressed as women, some in big gowns and rhinestones. Andrea Clover of Chez Dre, a new pastry shop in the Agora shopping center in Eldorado, is baking a chocolate cake with mocha filling and coffee

liqueur, in addition to the cake filled with passion fruit. “All the gay and lesbian weddings I’ve done,” Clover said, “they want really different, exciting flavors.” Clover said she even made a cake out of Dreamsicles for a lesbian couple who had met as children over the orange ice-cream treat. “Everyone is different,” she said. “We take pride in making every wedding cake different and customized.” Business is usually pretty slow in the pastry business around this time of year, Clover said, but since clerks in New Mexico began issuing licenses to same-sex couples, she’s been busy — eight weddings in the last three months. “Literally, from the moment they passed the law, I had people coming in that day to have a wedding that weekend.” The one she baked recently for two grooms had one male figure on the top and another climbing up the side of the cake to get to the other groom, a symbol of their 14-year wait to be able to legally marry. Dell Fox, who sells custom-made wedding rings, many to same-sex couples, will be there with her 22-karat jewelry. She said some customers like come into her studio while the gold is being alloyed. They’ve requested things like dog hair, tobacco and roses be melted in the crucible with the gold. Sometimes she puts the pot outside for a moon bath. Recently, she copied in gold two well-loved rings belonging to a lesbian couple. Travel consultant Liz Culpepper of Lizelle Travel in Albuquerque, who specializes in helping couples plan destination weddings and honeymoons, will also be at the expo to give advice on gay-friendly resorts. Puerto Vallarta, the Mexican city along the Pacific, is one of the best options, she said. Contact Anne Constable at 986-3022 or aconstable@sfnewmexican.com.

Target: Scandal has triggered two lawsuits Continued from Page A-1 vidual stories and lawsuits are beginning to crop up across the country. The growing scandal has triggered at least two class-action lawsuits, drawn state and federal investigations, and damaged Target’s bottom line. The company on Friday cut its fourth-quarter earnings forecast and said it expects sales to decline by 2.5 percent. “All the costs are going to eat up their profits,” said John Kindervag, an analyst with Forrester. “There’s going to be shareholder revolts. There’s going to be prosecutions. They’ve stepped in quicksand. It’s not going to be fun.” Affected customers will be sent an email providing them with general security tips, said Target, adding that no personal information would be requested in the email. The Minneapolis-based retailer is also offering one year of free credit monitoring and identity theft protection to all shoppers. Customers are not liable for any fraudulent charges made to their cards as a result of the breach, according to Target, which has also put a list of tips for shoppers on its website. “I know that it is frustrating for our guests to learn that this information was taken, and we are truly sorry they are having to endure this,” Gregg Steinhafel, Target’s chairman, president and chief executive, said in a statement. “I also want our guests to know that understanding and sharing the facts related to this incident is important to me and the entire Target team.” Friday’s announcement is the result of an ongoing investigation into the security breach, Target said. The company is working with the Secret Service and the Department of Justice to determine who was behind the attack. Spokesmen at the Secret Service and the Justice Department declined to comment on the investigation. Target’s problems reflect a crisis in how customer data is protected, analysts said. “It’s a little frightening. These bad guys are getting into some of the most secure retailers’ networks, and I’m sure it’s not going to stop at Target,” Litan said. “We need a fundamentally different paradigm here for how we manage security.” But so far, with few details emerging about how the crime against Target was committed, it’s hard to say what solutions could have prevented this particular breach. In the meantime, card issuers are taking their own steps. Chase and American Express, for instance, have both reissued the debit cards of affected customers. Shoppers whose personal and financial data was stolen — the exact number is unclear — are at higher risk of falling victim to scams or having their information misused. Target said the two types of data are not linked within its system. But consumer advocates point to the fact that Target is an industry leader at data mining, the practice of analyzing customers’ information to find out more about their preferences and shopping habits. “That makes this breach all the more frightening,” said Paul Stephens, director of policy and advocacy at Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, an advocacy group. The volume of information Target has on its customers raised the stakes, he said. Experts said that with names and mailing addresses, thieves can use the credit cards for online purchases that require that information. On top of that, they can try to trick people into providing even more sensitive information, such as Social Security numbers, or hack into their computers. “They could pretend they’re the bank reissuing the card, and say, ‘We want to reissue your card, and give us your information,’ ” Litan said. A California shopper filed a lawsuit against Target last month and hopes to include other shoppers in a class-action case. Last week, a credit union in Alabama also took action against Target, seeking compensation for costs that would arise from issuing customers new cards, as well as any fraudulent charges. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said Friday in a statement that his office is on a nationwide investigation into the breach. “The news that Target has discovered a breach involving 70 million customers is deeply troubling,” Schneiderman said. Target has tried to win back consumers. After news of the attack broke last month, the company offered 10 percent off all in-store purchases after the attack. But it wasn’t enough to stave off a drop in sales, which the company said Friday were “meaningfully weaker-thanexpected.” Target noted that sales had improved in the last several days, though that was before the latest announcement. On Friday, the company’s stock dropped more than 1 percent.

veillance programs when The Guardian newspaper first published documents revealing the agency’s massive collection of business records on Americans’ cellphone use. That first story described a court order that required cellphone providers to, on a daily basis, give the NSA details of every American cellphone account — what numbers had been called and how long calls had lasted, among other information. While fellow committee members had years of intelligence experience to fall back on, Heinrich was still getting his bearings when Snowden’s revelations threw the community into a spiral. Committee heavy-hitters such as Feinstein and longtime NSA critic Ron Wyden, D-Ore., quickly picked sides in the debate: Feinstein planted firmly in defense of the NSA, Wyden amplifying previous criticisms. Stuck between two of the panel’s most reputable voices, Heinrich walked a careful middle ground. He finally laid his cards on the table in late October, when the committee was asked to vote on a Feinstein-sponsored bill that critics have called a cosmetic attempt to fend off greater overhauls. Four committee members — three of them from Feinstein’s own party, including Heinrich — refused to endorse the legislation. Instead, they signed their names to a competing, and far more stringent, proposal by Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. “I realized that if we don’t push this issue a little further, we’re going to continue to have this kind of overreach,” Heinrich said. The move aligned him with more veteran NSA critics on the panel, Mark Udall, D-Colo., and Wyden, who said Heinrich’s voice added a fresh take to their effort. “As a Westerner, we’re a long way from Washington, D.C.,” Wyden said of Heinrich. “He

doesn’t just automatically defer to a lot of these agencies and personnel. He asks hard questions. That’s a huge plus.” There was little in Heinrich’s House voting record that would have telegraphed his transformation into one of the NSA’s fiercest critics. Across his four terms as a congressman, he voted to extend USA Patriot Act provisions that allow for the NSA’s dragnet collection of Americans’ data, a vote he says he wouldn’t have cast had he known the extent to which the provisions were being used. The discrepancies in his own positions highlight a problem with congressional oversight of intelligence, Heinrich said. “You’ll hear some people say, ‘Well, Congress had been briefed, and this information was available to everyone.’ That’s not a particularly intellectually honest perspective, in my view,” he said. While the smaller size of the Senate makes it easier for members to fully understand classified matters, most House members are left to rely on that chamber’s intelligence panel to make the calls, Heinrich said. “I absolutely did not know the scope of what was going on under Section 215,” Heinrich said of his time in the House, referring to the Patriot Act provision that authorizes the NSA program. He said he’d voted to extend the provisions after conversations with House Intelligence Committee members whom he trusted. Those talks, it turned out, didn’t paint a clear picture. “They couldn’t tell me details. They can’t say things that are classified to somebody in an open session or sitting on the floor of the House,” he said. “Getting to that info for the average [House] member who was not on the Intelligence Committee, the odds of them getting an accurate picture of what was going on were very low.” It’s a disconnect Heinrich

would like to focus on in the coming months, as the committee continues to adjust to the post-Snowden intelligence landscape. The coming year isn’t expected to be any easier for the intelligence community or its congressional overseers. Along with the NSA debate, which the committee remains divided over, the intelligence panel is bracing for a battle over the release of its massive report on the CIA’s interrogation program, a reportedly scathing look at the agency’s enhanced interrogation practices. Questions continue to arise on Syria and possible draw-down of troops in Afghanistan. It’s been a whirlwind initiation year for the former intelligence rookie. But Heinrich said he’d found he was cut out for it. “I really enjoy the productivity of the relationships, and you can’t always see that from the outside. … [That] certainly is true in the intel committee,” he said. “It’s proven to be a really intellectually challenging and enjoyable place to be.”

It was uncharted territory for New Mexico’s junior Democratic senator, who isn’t given to bombastic statements or quick opinions. Instead, he speaks quietly with the measured precision of a former mechanical engineer. Many of his committee colleagues arrive at briefings flanked by staff; he often makes the trip alone. While reporters flock to the panel’s better-known names, Heinrich tends to make it through the doors with no one demanding to know what he thinks. But behind the low-flying demeanor, the panel newcomer has emerged as a leading voice in calls for reining in the NSA programs. It’s a role that has him breaking ranks with Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat who heads the committee, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat who first suggested Heinrich should become an Intelligence Committee member. It’s been a carefully traveled road for Heinrich, who took months to craft a solid position on the issue. “I wanted to make sure that I had all the relevant information, that I wasn’t jumping the gun or working off of partial information,” he said of his journey from a congressman who voted to extend the law allowing the NSA programs to an opponent today. “I took my time and really made sure that things were as they appeared.” Elected to the Senate in 2012 after two terms in the House, Heinrich was coming off tenures on the House Armed Services Committee and the Committee on Natural Resources. He was angling for similar assignments in the Senate. Then came the call from Reid. Heinrich could get a spot on the Senate’s Energy and Natural Resources Committee, but Armed Services was out. Instead, Reid thought Heinrich would be well suited to the intelligence panel. With no background outside of surface briefings in the House, the former city councilman from Albuquerque found the new assignment intimidating, he recalled. “When you get dropped into that committee, you get dropped into what’s going on this week in all of the conflict spots around the world. So you’re hearing about what may have happened in Afghanistan or Pakistan or Syria or wherever this week,” he said. “You don’t necessarily have the big longterm context that you need to be really effective on the committee.” To get his bearings, Heinrich scheduled weekly briefings on his own time — “sort of Intel 101,” he said — in which he met with committee staff to ground himself in the intelligence landscape. Heinrich said he’d just learned about the NSA’s sur-

Craft beer industry taking off as Santa Fe Brewing Co. plans expansion By Bruce Krasnow The New Mexican

A

bottoms-up boom is taking hold in New Mexico. The Santa Fe Brewing Co. announced plans to expand its operations Friday, as part of what is becoming a fast-growing craft-beer bonanza. The total number of gallons of craft beer manufactured in the state grew 21 percent in 2012. Though 2013 numbers are not yet final, production is expected to surpass 65,000 barrels, which would be an increase of 35 percent, according to Chris Goblet of the New Mexico Brewers Guild. Nationwide, the industry has seen growth of 15 percent. The Santa Fe Brewing Co. is New Mexico’s oldest current brewery, with distribution throughout Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Nevada, Kansas and Missouri. All the beer is brewed, canned and bottled in Santa Fe, and its production level makes it the state’s only regional brewery. “Once you hit 15,000 barrels, you hit a different category as a regional brewery. There are only 100 in the country, and so we have our first in New Mexico,” Goblet said of Santa Fe Brewing. Santa Fe Brewing Co. President Brian Lock said Friday that the company has purchased 3.2 acres off N.M. 14 that will be used to expand its operation. Lock said the company now has 30 employees, and the craft beer industry “is booming everywhere, but at some point it will slow down.” He said the business will proceed with caution as he expands, but when construction of the final phase is complete, the brewery

A Romeroville woman who witnessed part of a state police chase that ended with an officer-involved shooting said Friday that law-enforcement officials’ account of the incident is flawed. However, Helen Vargas gave varying accounts of what she says actually happened. Vargas lives about five miles south of Las Vegas, N.M., next to the stretch of Interstate 25 where the chase occurred Jan. 4. She said she saw part of the chase, and her main assertion is that the 72-year-old New York man who was shot by police did nothing to provoke the officers. Yes, she said, he was driving the wrong direction on the interstate highway, but when the police and Albert Urban drove by her home, it didn’t look like a chase to her. “They were going slow, slow. Maybe 30 miles per hour,” Vargas said. “He was probably more fearful than they were.” The wrong-way driver, Albert J. Urban of Hamburg, an upstate New York community near Buffalo, remained hospitalized Friday at University Hospital in Albuquerque. He faces two counts of aggravated assault upon a police officer and one count of aggravated fleeing a law-enforcement officer. His shooting is just the latest involving New Mexico State Police. In November, a state police officer shot and killed Jeanette Anaya, 39, of Santa Fe following a high-speed chase through the city. Video of that incident won’t be released until the District Attorney’s Office finishes its investigation of the case. And video of an Oct. 28 incident outside Taos shows another state police officer, Elias Montoya, firing his handgun toward a fleeing minivan containing five children and their mother, a Tennessee woman who had refused to accept a speeding ticket. That incident generated national attention after the video was released. State police have since fired Montoya, but his lawyer said he would appeal his termination. In the Urban case, officers used stop sticks — tire deflation devices — then forcibly stopped him using the PIT maneuver, or precision immobilization technique. State police said he then reportedly drove aggressively toward one of the officers, and shots were fired, resulting in Urban’s injuries. State police have reported that Urban was shot by Jonathan Wright, who has been with the force for two years. State police spokesman Sgt. Damyan Brown said Friday that Wright was placed on the standard administrative leave, but he didn’t know if Wright had returned to active patrol. In a letter to the Las Vegas Optic, Vargas claims she and her husband never saw the police perform a PIT

Santa Fe a ‘poor excuse’ for presidio in 1766

F

ew New Mexicans today are familiar with the Marqués de Rubí. A member of the Spanish nobility, he carried royal orders in 1766 to conduct a major inspection of all 21 presidios guarding the frontier of northern New Spain (Mexico). Those presidios, or forts, had been intended to hold in check Indian raiders, especially Apaches who terrorized Spanish settlements from Texas to the Gulf of California, but they had been largely ineffective.

His fact-finding tour ended up covering several thousand miles over a two-year period. A large cavalcade of assistants, servants and a soldier escort accompanying the Marqués reached El Paso on July 19, 1766. Because a 50-man presidio was located there, he inspected the troops as well as the condition of the town. El Paso and its satellite villages

were found to have a population of more than 5,000, the largest in New Mexico. From that point, Rubí followed the Camino Real into the upper province. He traveled in a posh carriage, while his soldiers rode horseback and an assortment of helpers such as blacksmiths, stock tenders, cooks and laundresses made their way on foot. In the entourage were two members of the

Royal Corps of Engineers, Capt. Nicolás de Lafora serving as Rubí’s “technical right arm,” and his draftsman, José de Urrutia. Their task was to map the route of the expedition and prepare small plans of individual presidios and towns. In addition, Lafora kept a highly important travel journal. From afar, the caravan made an impressive sight, so much so that an Apache war party of 50 or more hungrily watched the Spaniards pass by from a ridge on the Jornada del Muerto desert, but dared not attack. Rubí and company in their ascent of the Camino Real observed ruins of the old pueblos of Socorro and Alamillo. At Belen, they found the first substantial town on the road with 70 Spaniards owning lush green fields and flocks of sheep. Lafora in his journal said little about Albuquerque, except that the place supported “80 militiamen, well mounted and armed.” About the capital of Santa Fe, he criticized its poor excuse for a presidio, claiming it was incapable of defending the town. A proper military installation, Lafora noted, might spare New Mexico from another disaster like the 1680 Pueblo Revolt. Almost 20 years would pass, however, before a true walled

The Albuquerque Journal officially announced Friday that it will cease printing its Tuesday-throughSunday northern edition in favor of a weekly publication starting in February. The Journal North said the weekly edition will publish Fridays beginning Feb. 7. The current six-daya-week publication schedule will continue through Feb. 2. “We recognize that news consumption habits are changing and this product realignment and upgrade is designed with that in mind,” William Lang, president of the Journal Publishing Co., said in an article published in the newspaper and online. Albuquerque Journal Managing Editor Karen Moses said the paper wouldn’t comment beyond Friday’s article concerning the future of the Journal North. Published as the Journal Santa Fe in the city of Santa Fe and the Journal North across Northern New Mexico, the edition is headquartered in Santa Fe and has an editorial staff of about 10 employees. It’s not immediately clear how the move will impact the edition’s staff. The zoned publication is a separate section of about four to six pages that comes wrapped around the full Albuquerque Journal. The Journal North has its own website that features the edition’s printed content in addition to breaking news items. The Journal North article stated that the Albuquerque Journal still will be circulated daily throughout Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico.

State Democrats choose new director

The state Democratic Party has hired a longtime party activist, Lissa Knudsen, as its executive director. Knudsen, an Albuquerque resident, has worked on the staffs of state Sen. Tim Keller, D-Albuquerque, and U.S. Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham when Grisham was a Bernalillo County commissioner.

fort could be constructed north of the Plaza. When the imposing Rubí expedition rolled into Santa Fe, it must have caused quite a stir among the populace. After all, they had not seen a marqués since don Diego de Vargas had occupied the governorship early in the century. He had been granted the title by the king for his leadership in the reconquest. Inspector Rubí remained in Santa Fe a full 27 days. It would be a surprise if he was not feted with a grand ball in the Casa Real (Palace of the Governors). Much of his time was actually spent with then Gov. Tomás

Vélez Cachupín, discussing defensive needs of the province. The governor seems to have filled His Lordship’s ear with complaints about the inadequate troops, supplies and money furnished by the royal government. The number of men assigned to the presidial garrison was 80, and all had families. Since no barracks or family quarters existed, they lived in private homes. In line with his instructions, the Marqués de Rubí held an inspection and review of the troop on the Plaza. Since largescale public amusements of any kind were rare in those days, the citizenry must have turned out in force to view this spectacle. Capt. Lafora, during the prolonged stay, was taking a census

and also drawing up a map of “the layout of the capital,” as he put it. Once he’d completed a rough sketch, he turned it over to the draftsman Urrutia, who rendered it in final form. The valuable Urrutia map shows main roads entering and leaving Santa Fe, acequias, scattered buildings, three churches, the Palace of the Governors and the Plaza. With the wrap-up of its duties, the Rubí party departed Santa Fe on Sept. 15, arriving at El Paso in a mere 13 days. From that point, it continued the general inspection in Nueva Vizcaya (Chihuahua) and Sonora. The final report delivered to the king contained numerous recommendations to strengthen

“the presidial line” through financial reforms, building up soldier morale, improving supply and even moving some presidios to better locations. The king approved most of Rubí’s plan through issuance of the new military Reglamento of 1772. While it led to some improvements in the wars with Apaches, that tribe was still very much a thorn in the sides of New Mexicans at independence in 1821. Now in semi-retirement, author Marc Simmons wrote a weekly history column for more than 35 years. The New Mexican is publishing reprints from among the more than 1,800 columns he produced during his career.

FUNERAL SERVICES & MEMORIALS

THE NEW MEXICAN Saturday, January 11, 2014

HORACE LOWRY "BUD" HAGERMAN Horace "Bud" Hagerman was born August 17, 1927. His parents lived at South Spring (near Roswell, NM), but he was born in Colorado Springs. In 1932 the family moved up to a ranch that encompassed parts of Santa Fe, Torrance, and San Miguel Counties. The headquarters was located in the south part of Santa Fe County, and this is where Bud grew up. This part of the ranch is still in the family. Bud and his brother, Charles, were schooled at the ranch by parents or a tutor through the elementary grades. For the secondary grades, they went away to board at Middlesex School, Concord, MA where their father had gone before them. Bud graduated in 1946. Bud was drafted into the U.S. Army soon after graduation and served for several months before being released. He then entered Cornell University and graduated from the College of Agriculture in 1951 with a degree in Animal Husbandry and Agricultural Engineering. He returned to New Mexico to work on the ranch. Later in the 1950’s, Bud was re-drafted and served near Philadelphia in missile defense during the Cold War. On November 4, 1961, he married Katherine Ann "Kathy" Kitch. They began married life in La Cienega where they welcomed three children. Bud and his friend, Elias Sena, built the original large mill at what became Las Golondrinas Museum. In 1968 the Hagermans moved to the Old Agua Fria Road neighborhood where they have lived ever since. For a number of years Bud owned and operated a large apple orchard and truck farm located west of the Santa Fe airport. This property, known as Las Orillas Ranch, later became the Horse Park. Being in agriculture and an outdoors person, Bud was acutely aware of the importance of water resources and of long-range planning for their use. Over the years he served on numerous committees and boards that studied and advised on this issue including the Metropolitan Water Board 19861994. His latest position was as a member from Santa Fe County and the agricultural sector on the Estancia Basin Water Planning Committee. Bud was a dedicated fly fisherman, never happier than when he was on a trout stream. He also built fly rods, wrapping them in decorative thread patterns, and tied flies for himself and his friends. Later in life, Bud developed a passion for salmon fishing in the northern Pacific Ocean which rewarded him with yet another circle of friends. He always grew a magnificent vegetable garden and enjoyed having produce to share. Bud died at St. Vincent Hospital on January 8, 2014 after a brief illness. He was preceded in death by his father, Lowry Hagerman; his mother, Marie Louise deBremond Hagerman; and his brothers, Charles, and James Hagerman. Bud is survived by his wife, Kathy Kitch Hagerman; his daughter, Anne Marie Hagerman Wall; his son, Thomas Lowry Hagerman; his son, Charles Nathan "Nat" Hagerman (Kathleen Martell); and two grandsons, Benjamin Andrew and Hunter Hagerman Wall. A Memorial Service will be held later this spring. In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to Friends of the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum, 4100 Dripping Springs, Rd., Las Cruces, NM 88011 or the Wildlife Center, P.O.

Pita Sanchez, 75, a resident of Pojoaque passed away on January 8th after a long illness surrounded by her loving family. Born in Pojoaque, NM, on October 6, 1938 and raised in the Pojoaque Valley, Pita was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and greatgrandmother.

LIFE&SCIENCE Gadgets scramble body’s sleep rhythms

Categorizing extrasolar planets More than three-quarters of planets outside our solar system discovered by the Kepler space telescope fall into two new planetary classes: the super-Earth and the mini-Neptune. The Neptune of our solar system is about four times the diameter of Earth. Neptune’s thick hydrogen-andhelium atmosphere surrounds a core of ice and rock.

Having trouble sleeping? Check for a glow, inches from the pillow. Using a smartphone, tablet or laptop at bedtime may be staving off sleep, according to Harvard Medical School scientists, who have found specific wavelengths of light can suppress the slumber-inducing hormone melatonin in the brain. “We have biologically shifted ourselves so we can’t fall asleep earlier,” said Charles A. Czeisler, a professor of sleep medicine at Harvard Medical School. “The amazing thing is that we are still trying to get up with the chickens.” The result is less sleep — and less time for the body to recover. Routinely getting fewer than 8 hours of sleep compromises alertness, reaction time, efficiency, productivity and mood, according to Australia’s Sleep Health Foundation. In the U.S. alone, revenue from clinics treating sleep disorders grew 12 percent annually from 2008 to 2011, reaching $6 billion, according to IBISWorld. Drowsy drivers cause 1,550 fatalities annually, the National Department of Transportation estimates, and insomnia-related accidents in the workplace cost $31.1 billion annually, a study last year found. “Sleep is in a battle for our time with work life, social life and family life,” said David Hillman, a sleep specialist at the Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in Perth, Western Australia, and the chairman of the Sleep Health Foundation. “For a lot of us, it comes off a poor fourth in that battle.” Regular sleep disturbances are associated with ailments including obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer, according to Hillman. Modern technology isn’t helping. The National Sleep Foundation in Arlington, Va., commissioned a survey of 1,500 randomly selected adults in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Germany, Britain and Japan to understand their bedroom environment and its effect on sleep for its inaugural 2013 International Bedroom Poll. The results, published in September, showed that more than half of respondents in the U.S., Canada and Britain, and two-thirds in Japan, used a computer, laptop or tablet in the hour before bed. At least two-thirds of people in all countries surveyed watched TV in the hour before bed. Only about half said they get a good night’s sleep on work nights. “It’s a massive issue, particularly when you talk about technology,” said Sarah Loughran, a sleep researcher at the University of Wollongong, south of Sydney. “We’re not just talking about mobile phones but iPads, TVs, laptops. A lot of these things are in the bedroom.”

Sizing up what we see in space

Outside our solar system, so-called super-Earths, mini-Neptunes abound By Joel Achenbach The Washington Post

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. hat’s with all the mini-Neptunes? As astronomers peer deep into our galaxy, studying starlight for the twinkle of orbiting planets, they are seeing something unexpected: Most planets detected so far appear to be smaller than Neptune but larger than Earth, in a size range that does not exist in our solar system. Here, we have four rocky planets, of which Earth is the largest, and two gas giants, Jupiter and Saturn. Uranus and Neptune, sometimes labeled ice giants, have rocky cores with gaseous envelopes. The smaller of the two, Neptune, has a radius four times that of Earth. Pluto, recently demoted from planet status, is a dwarf planet. Throw in assorted moons, asteroids, comets and Pluto-like objects, and that’s our idea of a solar system. But now astronomers have found that most planets detected around distant stars are what you might call off-size worlds, as if rounded up from an outlet mall. The findings were presented this week at the annual meeting of the American Astronomical Society, held at National Harbor, Md. Astronomer Geoff Marcy of the University of California at Berkeley presented data showing that about 85 percent of planets found by NASA’s Kepler space telescope are “miniNeptunes” or “super-Earths.” Marcy noted that these planets orbit close to their parent stars and that it is possible, with advances in instrument sensitivity, that scientists will discover an abundance of small, rocky planets at more distant orbits. But that’s not what we see so far. Instead, there seems to be a distinct cosmic preference for this intermediate range of planet. These planets also seem to follow a pronounced pattern: Up to about twice the diameter of Earth, they are rocky and dense. Beyond that, the average density plummets, suggesting that the bigger worlds are enveloped in gas. This observation matches the theory of planet formation, in which there’s a limit to how large a purely rocky world can get. Shovel more and more dirt onto a big rocky

planet and it doesn’t get any bigger but rather compresses because of gravity, Marcy said. The Kepler telescope, launched in 2009, discovered the planets by observing the periodic dimming of starlight as planets transit across the disk of the star. Since then, scientists have been re-examining the parent stars with different methods. Marcy and his colleagues used radial velocity measurements, observing the Doppler shift in starlight as stars are tugged by the gravity of orbiting planets. Scientists have been on a roll in the discovery of planets beyond our solar system — hundreds have been found, and billions inferred through statistical extrapolation. Increasingly, it is obvious that this is a universe with a generous amount of planetary real estate. The next great leap is characterizing these places, to learn more about their atmospheres, surfaces, density, and so on. Could there be life on such planets? That remains a matter of speculation, hampered by a limited understanding of what life requires. The larger, gaseous mini-Neptunes would have, at their surface at the bottom of the atmosphere, extremely high atmospheric pressures, akin to what would be experienced at the bottom of an ultra-deep ocean. That said, life on Earth exists around deep-sea hydrothermal vents, so it is not impossible. “We know very little about how life got started and in what environments it might flourish,” Marcy said. “We’re really in the dark about the biology aspect of these planets.” Another astronomer, David Kipping of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, announced a newly discovered planet some 200 light-years away — fairly close in the galactic scheme of things — that is a bit of an anomaly. It has the same mass as Earth but is more than half again as large, suggesting that it is fluffy, with an extensive atmosphere. It’s “nothing like the Earth,” Kipping said. A University of Chicago graduate student in astronomy, Laura Kreidberg, presented data about the atmosphere of “everybody’s favorite super-Earth,” officially named GJ 1214b, which shows signs of having a layer of clouds of unknown composition. Astronomical observations have ruled out the possibility that they are made of water, carbon dioxide or methane. “I put my money on a layer of haze high up in the atmosphere, made out of soot . . . kind of like smog, actually,” Kreidberg said. One possible source of the cloud droplets is potassium chloride, which she said is pink when in liquid form. “It could be a pink planet,” she said.

City targets dearth of broadband options A

s a lot of developments swirl around the Internet, which has become a critical source of economic opportunity in the world today, Santa Fe’s quest for cheaper, faster access to the Web faces a test as early as next month. Even with a million dollars to spend, thanks to a capital improvement project funded in 2012, city officials will have to make a very strategic move to gain much headway against even modest community needs and expectations. By contrast, all of Taos soon will be connected to the Internet at gigabit speed, about a thousand Roger times faster than what is currently Snodgrass known as high speed. The next level is called terabit speed, and it Science Matters is another thousand times faster. By partnering with the Kit Carson Electric Cooperative and using its grid for distribution, Taos expects to leap forward in the information age. A federal grant of $64 million covers the cost, which is about what it would cost to do the same in Santa Fe. Also making a bold move, Google is rolling out a new fiber-optic program in Kansas City, Mo.; Kansas City, Kan.; and Austin, Texas, among other places, that offers connection speeds of up to 1,000 megabits per second, which the company predicts will be about 100 times faster than existing high-speed broadband. In Santa Fe, city project administrator Sean Moody puts the issue in the context of telecommunications and its local impact. “This is on the radar of city council that includes cell towers and overhead power lines,” he said. Economic development and education are in there, too, along with urban planning. Various cooperative efforts have been and will continue to play a role in local efforts. The city can hope to get lucky like Taos, but meanwhile, it has to work effectively with what it has. Capital improvement project funds must be spent on something that needs to be built, and Moody thinks he has found a bottleneck that could be fixed with a little work. Currently, there is one major link from Santa Fe to the backbone of the Internet, the main pipes that loop east and west through Albuquerque and connect with the rest of the world. “The distribution is relatively competitive and well-regulated.” Moody said. “What is not competitive is the wholesale transport side.” Providers pay fees for access, and if you use that provider, “The world is at your disposal.” There are at least four potential candidates for competition, but by the time that main branch line connects Santa Fe, he said, there is only a single player, and that’s Qwest. It’s called Qwest Classic. Moody has compared rates in Albuquerque with Santa Fe rates, and he has determined there is no significant difference in rates at speeds between 5 Mbps and 10 Mbps. But large businesses such as Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center, big data users like film-editing services, large employers such as Thornburg Investment Management and Genzyme Genetics, and the city and county are paying twice as much for bandwidth at the 100 Mbps scale. He believes the minimal competition could be remedied by building a co-location facility that would house a second pipe, enabling interconnection with additional providers. All the major networks run through the same pipes, although they don’t necessarily own them in the same way. Andrew Blum writes in Tubes, a popular book that explores the physical aspects of the Internet: “The networks carry networks. One company might own the actual fiber-optic cables, while another operates the light signals pulsing over that fiber, and a third owns, or more likely rents, the bandwidth encoded in that light.” Few of the players can stake a claim based on actual digging to deposit cable, but among them they own rights to many strands of cable, or even bandwidths of light within a strand of fiber, in which the stream of information is transmitted. To those who want a faster Internet connection from the Santa Fe capital project, Moody advises patience. “This has value immediately, by opening up the wholesale market and value in the future by opening fiber,” he said. “Whether we start operating at terabit speeds or start flying around on jetpacks, whatever we do, this program and the co-lo are going to be instrumental.” If you asked the precocious kids in the “It’s not complicated” AT&T commercials whether bigger and faster is better, they probably would say yes. But sometimes the situation is complicated. “Right now, Santa Fe may be on a long list of places where Internet operators would like to go, and this speeds it up by about 10 years,” Moody said. “We’re doing this because we want to get there sooner.” Contact Roger Snodgrass at roger.sno@gmail.com.

Brute force is but one weapon in war

F

ormer Secretary of Defense Robert Gates has written a soon-to-bepublished book, Duty: Memoirs of A Secretary at War, in which he accuses President Barack Obama of being ambivalent about the war in Afghanistan. That seems about right to me. In fact, who wouldn’t be ambivalent about a 10-yearlong war with no Bill Stewart good end in sight? Understanding Even Your World more so about Iraq, which seems to be disintegrating before our very eyes, despite a hard-fought struggle by tens of thousands of American soldiers with hundreds of thousands of Iraqi and American casualties. The U.S., indeed the West as a whole, must deal with a huge swath of the world stretching from Morocco on the Atlantic to Afghanistan in South Asia whose problems are rooted in ancient, unresolved religious and social conflicts marked by deep hatreds and terrorist outbreaks that can occur anywhere in the world. Even now, Russia, no supporter of Western democracy, struggles to ensure the safety of the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, only a few hundred miles from the center of Islamic religious discontent in Chechnya and Dagestan. Winston Churchill once noted that you could always count on the Americans to do the right thing in the end, after they’d first tried everything else. I’m reminded of that quote because during the Vietnam War (in which I took part) there was a constant struggle between the military, which wanted to pursue a strategy of conventional warfare to achieve a military victory, and those who felt the war was unconventional and required an unconventional

approach in which military victory was never going to be an option. In the end, the unconventional supporters won, but by that time we were already on the way out. During the last months of the war in 1975, by which time there were scarcely any U.S. troops in the country, the U.S. Congress refused to support a flailing South Vietnamese government with any more military support. As we know, Saigon lost. Many years later, we invaded Afghanistan to avenge the attack on the World Trade Center in New York and to get rid of al-Qaida headquarters in Afghanistan and the Talban leadership in Kabul that had given them shelter. By and large, we achieved those immediate objectives, and the world supported us. But stabilizing Afghanistan to prevent the return of the Taliban has proven to be much harder to achieve because, as in Vietnam, outside forces cannot solve inside problems. Only a year or two after Afghanistan, we took our eyes off that country to invade Iraq, with military and civilian hard-liners assuring the public that we would be welcomed with flowers and open arms. That was never going to happen. But the hard-liners in Washington had won the day with their view that a suc-

cessful military strike would not only depose Saddam Hussein but pave the way for democracy in Iraq and an Israeli-Palestinian settlement. The Middle East would become a more peaceful place because of the use of a powerful “shock and awe” military strike. But the problems of the Middle East are not susceptible to the use of force by outsiders. In fact, as we have seen in Syria, the use of force by Middle East nations themselves has proved deadly but useless. Since December, al-Qaidalinked fighters and Sunni tribes have taken control of Ramadi and Fallujah in Anbar province, the biggest in Iraq. Although Iraq has a 60 percent Shiiite majority, Anbar has always had a Sunni majority. It borders Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia and is a strategically vital piece of territory for any Iraqi government. Together, Ramadi and Fallujah have about 1 million people. They were liberated from militants at great cost by U.S. forces during the Iraq War. It is the first time insurgents have controlled territory in Anbar province since 2004, when they were driven out by U.S.-backed Iraqi troops. The takeover is a serious threat to the authority of Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki and a major setback to

efforts to quell sectarian violence in Iraq, which has seen an upsurge since U.S. troops completed their withdrawal two years ago. Nevertheless, Secretary of State John Kerry says no U.S. troops are going back to Iraq. In Afghanistan, President Hamid Karzai, true to his duplicitous ancestors, will not sign a previously agreed upon security treaty with the U.S., leaving that job to his successor this spring. But by that time, says the U.S., it may be too late for any treaty to be effective. If brute force proved ineffective in providing long-term solutions in Iraq and Afghanistan, what options does the U.S. have at this point? The smarter use of force is an obvious alternative. But the challenge for any new president is to learn the hard lesson that a splendidly equipped and trained military might win battles, but in the evolving world of unconventional warfare, it most likely will not win wars. President Obama’s alleged ambivalence may be a sign that he has learned that lesson. Bill Stewart writes about current affairs from Santa Fe. He served as a U.S. Foreign Service officer and as a correspondent for Time magazine.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Political prisoners should be pardoned

A

t Nelson Mandela’s funeral, President Barack Obama praised Mandela for giving voice to “the claims of the oppressed” and spoke of the “moral necessity of racial justice.” Mandela was a revolutionary, repeatedly arrested for “seditious activities.” Although initially committed to nonviolence, he eventually led armed resistance against the apartheid government. He served 27 years in prison for this. Most know this story, but how many know about the political prisoners here in the U.S.? Men like Oscar Lopez Rivera, who has spent more than 31 years in prison for “seditious conspiracy” because of his commitment to the independence of Puerto Rico. Or Sundiata Acoli, formerly Clark Squire, now in his 70s, with almost 40 years in prison for his involvement in the Black Panther Party.

Neither man killed anyone, but both were imprisoned for ideas. President Obama has the power to release them with the stroke of a pen. Why doesn’t he?

what the artist wanted. The position was changed because of a 1930 photograph and a 1931 letter by the artist that indicated that the painting could be hung in any direction. The new evidence shows the artist cared very much about the position.

P

resident Lyndon B. Johnson’s “unconditional” War on Poverty in America would not be short or easy, he warned, and no single weapon or strategy would suffice. The intervening five decades have not only proved him right, they also have shown which approaches are most successful. Were it not for Medicaid, unemployment insurance, Head Start, food stamps and the many other programs LBJ set in motion 50 years ago, the poverty level would be almost twice as high as it is — 16 percent of the population in 2012 — with children and the elderly making up most of the difference. In the recent downturn alone, the level would have surged by at least 5 percentage points. Still, the United States has almost 50 million people living in poverty, defined as about $12,000 in earnings for an individual and about $23,500 for a family of four. While poverty in the U.S. is no longer so dire that children are dying of malnutrition, as they were in the 1960s, raising the living standards of the poor remains an economic imperative — not only to relieve the 50 million poor of want but also to help them become more productive workers and net contributors to society. So the push must continue — using strategies that have done the most to raise up the poorest households over the past five decades. One of the most effective tools has been the earned income tax credit, a $55 billion program that rewards the working poor by refunding some of their income and payroll taxes. The credit — which has averaged about $3,000 for families with children — has helped reduce welfare rolls even more than the 1996 welfare-reform law did. This program, now geared toward single-parent families, could be expanded to help two-parent families and parents without child custody. Congress could also lessen the disincentives to work or wed by not reducing anti-poverty benefits when a couple marries or one spouse’s income rises above a cutoff. Nutrition programs are another effective poverty fighter. In 2012, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (aka food stamps) kept 5 million people out of poverty. School lunches did the same for 1.2 million children. In November, when Congress allowed $11 billion in stimulus funds that beefed up the food-stamp program to expire, it meant an average 7 percent decrease in benefits for about 45 million people. And in the farm bill now under consideration, the House is proposing almost $40 billion more in food-stamp reductions over 10 years. That would kick 3.8 million people off the program entirely — the opposite of what a revived war on poverty requires. Tax credits and nutrition programs can mitigate existing poverty, but preventing poverty is just as important. Like LBJ, who hoped to break the poverty cycle with the Head Start preschool program, President Barack Obama is calling for universal preschool. Experts debate the benefits, but when all the evidence is considered, it’s clear that universal pre-K enables children, especially poor and disadvantaged kids, to enter kindergarten with improved cognitive skills. The $10 billion annual cost of Obama’s proposal would pay for itself — one study says every $1 invested returns $11 later on — if the U.S. is ever to close the gap in educational achievement between rich and poor. Most Americans support expanding, rather than contracting, such social-welfare efforts. Obama paved the way with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which should keep Americans from having to choose between health care and other daily necessities. Obama is also rightly pushing Republicans to extend unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless and to raise the minimum wage. Conservative Republicans, notably Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, are responding with anti-poverty initiatives of their own. Rubio is even suggesting wage-enhancement credits for low-income workers, a close cousin of the earned income tax credit. Fifty years ago, LBJ was motivated in part by politics. He was hoping to attract the black vote. If politics is driving both parties to reach for solutions, that doesn’t make the goal less worthy. It may even result in a smarter War on Poverty.

Newsmakers Kathleen Kennedy calls her stage debut ‘magical’

Kathleen Kennedy

NEW YORK — The storied Kennedy family has produced a president, ambassadors, an attorney general, senators and plenty of congressmen. But not a professional actor. Kathleen “Kick” Kennedy hopes to change that. The 25-year-old granddaughter of Robert F. Kennedy is making her professional stage debut off-Broadway this month in, of all things, a Greek tragedy. Kennedy plays the title role in Antigone, the Sophocles play about a young woman willing to die in order to defend her family’s honor and defy the state. “I’m really lucky,” Kennedy said. “It’s just sort of magical that everything fell into place.” Kennedy is a Stanford University graduate who has appeared on TV in shows such as The Newsroom, Gossip Girl and Curb Your Enthusiasm. Kennedy is named after her great-aunt Kathleen, who also had the nickname Kick, who died in a plane crash in 1948. Kennedy grew up in New York, the daughter of environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and his first wife, Emily Black. Kennedy, who is dating singer-songwriter Paul Simon’s son Harper, isn’t sure what her next acting gig will be. The Associated Press

Fate looms large in Marvel’s ‘Ultimate’ By Matt Moore

The Associated Press

I

t’s the end of the world for Marvel’s Ultimate universe, but it’s a beginning, too. Fourteen years after its creation by Marvel Entertainment as a modern, grittier and contemporary take on Marvel’s characters, the publisher is pushing forward with new efforts to reinvigorate its universe where the dead remain so and disaster, discord and — ultimately — redemption and rebirth are among the events that keep readers coming back issue after issue. What it means for characters like Miles Morales; members of the FF (Future Foundation, not Fantastic Four); and the All-New Ultimates, including the new Black Widow (she used to be Spider-Woman), Kitty Pryde, Bombshell and Cloak and Dagger, will unfold beginning in April as the events of the soon-to-end Cataclysm miniseries runs its course. Writer Brian Michael Bendis is tight-lipped about the end but said this week that it ends with great cost. “They’re able to win the day, but at great sacrifice, a sacrifice that is so huge that it changes the entire landscape,” Bendis said. “It creates a place that demands a fresh start from everyone who surveys it.” The move is part of Marvel Entertainment’s relaunching of its Ultimate universe that starts in April under the banner Ultimate Marvel NOW! Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso called it the opportunity to tear down the existing universe to make it better. “Once again, we’re destroying something and building something new, but there’s an end game in sight,” he said of the move, noting that Marvel’s so-called Ultimate universe has always been noted by readers, writers and artists and editors for its “elasticity” and experimentation. “We created the line to take chances,” he said. “Dead is dead,” he said, so don’t expect any miraculous resurrections. “The long and short of it is this: The Ultimate [universe] benefits from a good, old kick in the butt.” It’s also a chance for other characters to take larger roles

in place of long-standing ones. “If you’ve been following Brian Bendis and David Marquez’s Ultimate Comics SpiderMan, you know that Miles Morales, has had to grow up fast,” said editor Mark Paniccia. “In All-New Ultimates, we’ll see this eclectic group of super-powered teens step up, live fast and maybe even die hard” in the new series written by Michel Fiffe and drawn by Amilcar Pinna. Fiffe said he hopes to “introduce many more enemies and allies to their world. The Ultimate universe is relatively young, which yields more opportunities for real change, real dangers and dramatic avenues left unexplored in superhero comics.” Bendis said Morales, who took up the Spider-Man mantle after the death of Peter Parker, is among those in new territory. “You can look at this as kind of his Bar Mitzvah of sorts and, now, he has to take the reins of Spider-Man under the new world he finds himself in,” he said of the upcoming Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man series drawn by Marquez. “His entire life as a human being has changed.” For others, the change is going to be rapid, and unexpected, said Joshua Hale Fialkov, writer of Ultimate FF, a team book drawn by Mario Guevara focusing on several core members that make up the Future Foundation. “It’s a team of geniuses, four of the smartest people in the Ultimate universe,” he said, of the core that includes Sue Storm and Tony Stark, among others. “And we’re missing one, and that one happens to be a psychopath.” Fialkov called the titles an opportunity for Marvel and readers. “We have a pretty big responsibility with this universe. No. 1., it has been a gateway for people back into films and we want to be innovative, doing things different with these characters that you cannot get anywhere else. “We look at the opportunity Cataclysm gave us to reset the board,” he said, “and do some really cool stuff with the characters.”

Saints, Seahawks to clash in division playoff By Tim Booth

PREP BOYS BASKETBALL SANTA FE HIGH SUFFERS ANOTHER DISAPPOINTING LOSS

Struggling with demons

SEATTLE — When they walked off the field in Atlanta last January after blowing their chance to play for the NFC championship in the final seconds, there were varying emotions brewing in the Seattle Seahawks’ locker room. Anger, disappointment and reflection were widespread. Some, like quarterback Russell Wilson, were already peeking ahead what appeared to be a bright future. Others never wanted to experience those emotions again. “We never want to feel that feeling again,” Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman said this week. “I think as motivated as New Orleans is from what happened to them the last time they came here, we’re just as motivated from what happened in Atlanta. We don’t ever want to go there and feel that feeling of regret, of disappointment, of anger, of frustration, of all those things that you felt after that game that you felt like you should have won.” The Seahawks chance at making amends for what happened in last season’s playoffs arrives Saturday when they host New Orleans in the NFC divisional playoff. But now the Seahawks aren’t the

SPORTS

Demons: Some cite need for ‘toughness’ Continued from Page B-1 was a big turning point because we’ve been on the verge of winning games, but we just haven’t carried through. We had a total team effort, and that’s what it takes. “Good players and good teams have a good frame of mind, they have mental toughness and focus and execution. The good teams finish games.” Rodriguez and several players blame their woes on a lack of mental toughness. They believe that if they can play smarter basketball, then maybe they can pull out wins instead of close losses. “Every game, we shoot ourselves in the foot with turnovers and missed free throws,” junior Hayden Hargrove said. “If we consistently make our free throws and handle the ball well, we would win more games.” While some might name the mistakes as the reason for the losses, others might look at a Demon roster filled with 10 juniors and sophomores and think that might also be the culprit. Rodriguez said the team’s youth is no longer an excuse. “We’re young and we’ve been injured,” Rodriguez said. “That plays a part to some extent, but we’re also using that as an excuse. There comes a time where you just have to get strong and get it done.” Hargrove, who finished the game against Taos (11-2) with 16 points, might only be a junior, but he is also a captain. He believes that 13 games is more than enough experience — even for a young team. “Inexperience goes away after four or five games,” he said. “That shouldn’t be an excuse anymore.” Although the Demons may be young this year, they will

be full of varsity experience next year, just in time for the big move to the new Class AAAAAA.

The team holds a belief that it will be ready for big-school competition next year. The Demons will have seven guards

and have three players — Vitto Coppola, Isaiah Taylor and Hargrove — that are 6-foot-4. “We feel confident because we have a bunch of young guards that are being baptized right now,” Rodriguez said. “They’re going to be ready. We’re going to have the size to compete and we’re going to have the experience at guard. All young teams have to go through this.” “Our struggles this year are definitely going to help us next year,” added Hargrove. “We’re going to be a lot better because of all the experience we’re getting this year.” But as far as this year is concerned, the Demons have dug themselves a deep hole — just like it did last year with a 2-5 start and a 4-11 beginning in the 2011-12 season. Regardless, Rodriguez doesn’t think anyone should take his team lightly. “Anyone that is judging us by our record right now is making a mistake,” Rodriguez said. “Tough times can make kids tougher, and these kids aren’t going to hide. They’re going to get tougher.” Santa Fe High hopes that the lumps it is taking now will make it tougher, and help when District 2AAAA play comes along. The Demons will play Albuquerque Academy, Albuquerque Cibola and Albuquerque Sandia Preparatory before opening the district season against Española Valley on Jan. 22. Those three games are going to be tough, but tough games are what Rodriguez wants before district opponents. “We’re paying for it now, but that’s what we want before district,” Rodriguez said. “We’ll be ready.”

Today on radio UNM MEN’S BASKETBALL

Lobos: Thomas scores 7 points in overtime Continued from Page B-1 a technical foul for blowing a kiss at the Cowboys’ student section after he made the first of two free throw attempts to open a 68-64 lead. The Lobos withstood that near implosion, getting a big block from Alex Kirk in the final 16 seconds and riding seven points in OT from guard Cleveland Thomas. That offensive burst may have been the biggest contribution of Thomas’s UNM career. A starter for the first 10 games of this season, the sophomore has come off the bench for the last four. He said he has actually played more inspired ball since becoming a reserve. He said it is his goal to provide instant offense off the bench.

“I don’t question the coaches,” Thomas said after the 72-69 win at Wyoming. “Whatever they say, that’s what it is. …. I feel more comfortable coming off the bench.“ With junior Hugh Greenwood continuing to play like his old pre-injury self, it appears that coach Craig Neal’s team is playing with more poise than it has all season. Greenwood’s threegame hiatus to deal with a bad right wrist has helped Neal and senior Kendall Williams develop better on-court chemistry. “You’re putting the ball in a freshman’s hands that had some success against Marquette, had some success against Grand Canyon,” said head coach Craig Neal. “But

you’ve also got a senior [Williams] out there with him that was player of the year last year. Hugh’s always been a stabilizing guy, but I think we’re getting more stabilizing play from everybody because they got some confidence when Hugh was out.” The Lobos are in the midst of playing five of seven MWC games on the road. The only home dates are UNLV (next Wednesday) and Boise State (Jan. 21). Thomas said getting past the game at Wyoming was more challenging than some people probably think. “It’s hard to win up here, like the air’s a little thinner,” he said. “And also it’s so dead, the light’s dim in the gym and everything.”

NOTES u The Lobos have never lost to San Jose State, winning all six previous meetings between 1961 and 1999. The schools were both members of the Western Athletic Conference in the late 90s before UNM became a charter member of the MWC. u New Mexico has a winning record on the road against four of its 10 fellow MWC rivals, including a 1-0 mark all-time at San Jose State. u With forward Khadijah Shumpert expected to miss her second straight game for the UNM women’s basketball team, Alexa Chavez will likely get another start on Saturday when the Lobos host San Jose State in The Pit. Tipoff is scheduled for 2 p.m.

PREP ROUNDUP

Stingy defense helps lift Waldorf over Vaughn The New Mexican

Length plus zone defense equalled big trouble for the Vaughn Eagles. Host Santa Fe Waldorf’s 2-3 zone caused a lot of problems in the S.F. Waldorf 42 opening night of Vaughn 30 the Wolves RoundRound Tournament in Christian Life Academy, and it led to a 42-30 boys basketball win on Friday night. Waldorf allowed the Eagles to hit their first three shots of the game, but clamped down after that, as Vaughn hit just nine of its last 55 shots. The Wolves didn’t exactly singe the nets either, hitting just 16 of 568 attempts, but it was a matter of who played better defense. “We executed well offensively, it was just the shots didn’t go down.” Waldorf head coach Rob Clifford said. “We usually shoot a pretty fair percentage, but when you’re playing defense like that, you can make up for a lot of missed shots.” Sean Ramsey took advantage of the plethora of misses and led Waldorf with 17 rebounds and three blocked shots to go

with 12 points. Augie Ciofalo hit three 3-pointers and led the Wolves with 15 points. Waldorf will play two games on Saturday, starting with a 10:30 a.m. battle with Graceway Christian, then playing Mosquero in the finale at 7:30 p.m. GIRLS BASKETBALL ESPAñOLA VALLEY 78, THOREAU 49 The Lady Sundevils have shown an ability to render opposing offenses useless for a quarter, and they demonstrated that in the second quarter of a nondistrict game against the Lady Hawks in Edward Medina Gymnasium. Española outscored its opponent 20-9 to open up a 36-21 lead at the half, and poured it on from there as it played in front of the home crowd for just the second time this season. “The girls were excited to play in front of our fans, and our defense stayed steady,” said Ray Romero, Lady Sundevils head coach. “We’d get a turnover here and a turnover there, and we’d get some transition baskets.” Ashlynn Trujillo led the way with 25 points for the Lady Sundevils (11-3), and Alexis Lovato added 14. Alyssa Yazzie led Thoreau (11-3) with 11 points.

SANTA FE HIGH 53, ALBUqUERqUE ACADEMY 20 In Albuquerque, the Demonettes rolled to their 11th straight win to earn a berth in Saturday’s championship game of a tournament hosted by Albuquerque Sandia Preparatory. They will face Sandia Prep, which beat Raton on a buzzerbeater in Friday’s other semifinals, in the title game at 5:15 p.m. Two Demonettes finished in double figures, led by Sabrina Lozada-Cabbage’s 12 points. Kayla Herrera added 10 while Andrea Gonzales had seven. Nine of the 11 players on the active roster scored at least one point. Santa Fe High put the game away in the third quarter, using a 19-4 run to expand what had been a 22-12 halftime lead. DULCE 41, SANTA FE PREPARATORY 37 In Dulce, the visiting Blue Griffins rallied from seven points down in the fourth quarter to tie the game in the final two minutes before dropping a nondistrict game to the Lady Hawks (5-9). Prep (3-6) trailed 12-4 after one quarter, but kept its deficit anywhere between five and nine points most of the way. The Griffins tied it on a pair of buckets and a long 3-pointer in the closing moments, but failed to take the lead on a pair of ensu-

ing possessions. “We were right there; we had our chances,” said Prep head coach Anika Amon. Dulce’s Alyssa Veneno had a game-high 19 points.

Gostkowski, Vinatieri get their kicks Patriots, Colts kickers prep for Saturday playoff duel By Howard Ulman

The Associated Press

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Stephen Gostkowski sings on the sideline when he prepares to kick. Then he tries a field goal that could win a big game for the New England Patriots. “Raindrops Keep FalStephen lin’ On My Head,” might Gostkowski be appropriate Saturday night against the Indianapolis Colts with a spot in the AFC championship game at stake. Steady rain is expected during the divisionalround game, but Gostkowski says it’s his job to deal with all kinds of Adam weather. Vinatieri Besides, the NFL scoring leader for the second straight season has a routine that helps him focus. During the week “I’ll watch a fiveminute [video] cut-up of some big kicks that I’ve made to a song that I like,” he said. “Then, when I’m on the sideline, I’ll sing that song and then, in my head, I see the ball going through the uprights.” What’s that tune? Country, rock, hiphop? “It’s a secret,” Gostkowski said, smiling. On game day, he also listens to mellow music to relax before taking the field where 300-pound linemen charge each other and cornerbacks collide with receivers. “I always just try to visualize myself doing well and not getting overexcited or too hyped up in the moment,” Gostkowski said. “Most of those guys are banging heads. I’m trying to like listen to Enya before the game to calm myself down. “The worst thing you can do in situations where, for me personally, where the situation gets bigger, is get too excited. You have to try to slow your heart rate down, turn that nervousness and tightness into focus.” It’s worked for him. In eight seasons since the Patriots drafted him in the fourth round out of Memphis in 2006, Gostkowski has made 85.6 percent of his regular-season field goal attempts, fifth best in NFL history. This season, his 92.7 percentage (38 of 41) was second best in Patriots history.

The best? The 93.9 percent (31 of 33) in 2004 of Adam Vinatieri, the kicker Gostkowski replaced. The 18-year veteran returns to Gillette Stadium with the Colts after a regularseason in which he made 87.5 percent (35 of 40) of his attempts. And the kicker whose field goal on the last play gave the Patriots a 20-17 win over the St. Louis Rams in the 2002 Super Bowl expects the same greeting he heard in past visits with the Colts. “They’re fanatical fans, like we have,” Vinatieri said. “I’m sure they’ll be loud and probably in a negative way to me and the rest of the team, but that’s what it’s supposed to be.” In the only other playoff duel between the two kickers, the Colts trailed 21-3 in the final minute of the first half but won the AFC championship game 38-34 on their way to a 2007 Super Bowl victory. On consecutive fourth-quarter series, Gostkowski, then Vinatieri then Gostkowski again made field goals that left the Patriots ahead 34-31. Then Joseph Addai ran 3 yards for the winning touchdown with 1:00 left. “There’s a lot of fun things about this sport,” said Vinatieri, who also won three Super Bowls with New England, “but trying to hoist that trophy at the end is what we all play for.” He has been a clutch kicker with

24 winning field goals in the last minute of a regular-season or playoff game. “He’s a special guy,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. “He was here in ’96, the year I came in [as an assistant coach] and was very consistent, dependable, toughminded, good technique player. It doesn’t look like it’s changed.” Gostkowski has had far fewer clutch opportunities in 10 fewer seasons, connecting on six winning field goals in the final four minutes with three coming this season. He admires Vinatieri’s long-term success, but can he envision sticking around that long himself? “I don’t know, man,” Gostkowski said. “I’m just trying to make it to the next game.” For now, it’s all about Saturday night. Both teams have been in plenty of close games this season. The Patriots (12-4) are 8-4 when the margin was seven points or fewer. The Colts (12-5) were 6-1 in games decided by six or fewer. The latest came last Saturday in a 45-44 wild-card win over the Kansas City Chiefs, who led by 28 early in the third quarter.

NFL: 2 players violated concussion protocol By Barry Wilner

The Associated Press

BOSTON — Two players violated league concussion protocol during last weekend’s wild-card games, according to a letter sent by the NFL’s head, neck and spine committee chairmen to all team doctors and trainers. In a document obtained by The Associated Press, Drs. Hunt Batjer and Richard Ellenbogen said one player reentered the game and another refused to leave the sideline. The doctors did not identify the players, but one was Green Bay tackle David Bakhtiari, who went into the game for an extra-point try despite being examined for a concussion and not cleared. The other player was Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis, who remained on the sideline, but

did not get back on the field. “On two occasions last weekend, and contrary to the advice of the team medical staffs, players who had been diagnosed with a concussion and therefore declared ineligible for play nonetheless refused to leave the sidelines as required by league concussion protocols,” the letter said. “In one case, the player went back onto the field for one play before being removed from the game.” The doctors found “no fault” in how the team medical staffs

conducted themselves. “If a player refuses to follow your advice and leave the sidelines after being diagnosed with a concussion, we recommend that the head athletic trainer seek assistance from the player’s position coach [or another member of the coaching staff] or from another team official to remove the player from the sidelines as soon as possible,” the letter said. The NFL’s Madden Rule requires a player diagnosed with a concussion to be taken to the locker room or another quiet location. “We will continue working with the league to ensure that team doctors, coaches, trainers and other members of a team’s medical staff enforce returnto-participation protocols,” the NFL Players Association said in an email. “Players naturally want to play and ultimately, the

game-day medical and coaching staffs have the responsibility and obligation for player protection and care.” The Saints and Packers declined comment. No fines will be imposed for the violations. Bakhtiari’s season is over because Green Bay lost to San Francisco. Lewis’ Saints, however, are playing Saturday at Seattle and he has been practicing. Batjer and Ellenbogen noted in the letter how players may resist being kept out of the game, particularly during the postseason. “But [the rule] is an important element of the league’s protocol and intended to safeguard the player’s well-being and enhance his ability to recover from his injury,” they wrote.

of his postgame interviews. It felt like I knew him,” Harvey said. “More than anything, it was like he shook my hand. He really didn’t, but that’s what it felt like. It makes a lot of things over here worthwhile, to know that you’re appreciated.” Rivera said the letter is his own way of showing that appreciation. “The biggest thing is I always thank them for their service and their commitment to defending our country, and we really appreciate them being a Panther fan,” Rivera said. “And at the end, you always talk about ‘Keep Pounding.’ ” “Keep Pounding” is a reference to the team’s season-long rally cry. Harvey grew up in a home full of Dallas Cowboys fans, but he became a Green Bay Packers follower during the Brett Favre days. When the Panthers opened for business in 1995, Harvey made the switch. There’s no mistaking Harvey’s loyalty. “I have enough

stuff to hang on everybody’s door on my hallway,” he said. That includes a sizeable contingent of Denver Broncos’ fans, he added before proudly proclaiming, “I’ve got them all beat.” Harvey has posters of Newton, the TopCats cheerleaders, socks, jerseys and T-shirts, courtesy of the team. Harvey is still waiting on his Luke Kuechly jersey. He said someone also sent some Saints gear before the Charlotte showdown. “It’s a good fire starter,” he quipped. Next on Harvey’s list is seeing the Panthers in person. The Havelock native, who was hoping fellow native and Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter will send him some tickets, has never seen an NFL game live. As for Sunday’s playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers, Harvey said he will be decked out in Carolina’s blue and black gear. “It’s going to be all out,” he said, “no doubt.”

DENVER — Philip Rivers likes to say the San Diego Chargers have been in playoff mode since last month, scrapping just to squeak into the postseason party. Wesley Woodyard would like him to know the Denver Broncos have been in the pressure cooker ever since their playoff pratfall a year ago when they lost at home in double-overtime to underdog Baltimore. “Absolutely. We have been waiting for this moment for a long time,” Woodyard said. Since the first-round bye was introduced in 1978, 16 other teams have opened the playoffs at home a year after losing a divisional home game to a wild-card winner. Only one of those teams, the 1987 Chicago Bears, lost again. Nine of those reached the Super Bowl and five of them won it: the ’83 Raiders, ’88 49ers, ’90 Giants, ’97 Broncos and the ’06 Colts — led by current Denver quarterback Peyton Manning. The ’96 Broncos lost to Jacksonville 30-27, then whipped the Jaguars 42-17 the following year on their way to winning their first of two straight Super Bowls behind Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway, the front office boss who lured Manning to Denver last year. Manning’s 2005 Colts were upset by Pittsburgh, but he led them to the championship the following season. He’s out to repeat that feat beginning Sunday, when the top-seeded Broncos (13-3) host the Chargers (10-7) at Sports Authority Field on the anniversary of Denver’s 38-35 loss to the Ravens. Here are some things to

watch for as the Broncos try to advance to their first AFC championship game in eight years: Philip Rivers Rivers owns Denver: Manning is 14-3 at home since joining the Broncos two years ago, but Rivers is no slouch in Denver, where he’s 6-2. And he’d be 7-1 if not for Ed Hochuli’s blown call on a lastminute Denver fumble in 2008. He won here a month ago, when the Chargers handed the Broncos their only home loss, 27-20. Wind warning: While it’s expected to be 44 degrees at kickoff, swirling winds could wreak havoc on Manning and Rivers, who combined to throw for 9,925 yards this season. The National Weather Service predicted winds of 15-25 mph with gusts up to 35. Broncos reinforcements: The Broncos didn’t have captains Champ Bailey (foot) and Wes Welker (concussion) the last time these teams played, but both are healthy now. Without them, the Broncos were just 2 of 9 on third down and Rivers picked on rookie cornerback Kayvon Webster all night. Bailey teams with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Chris Harris Jr. to give Denver three solid cornerbacks. Balanced Broncos: Of the 23 players who reached the end zone 10 or more times this season, five of them are Broncos: Demaryius Thomas (14), Knowshon Moreno (13), Julius Thomas (12), Eric Decker (11) and Welker (10). “That tells you about the players we have on our team, the way Peyton spreads the ball out, how anybody can score at any given time,” Denver wide receivers coach Tyke Tolbert said.

Clash: Seahawks rested and ready Continued from Page B-1 upstarts with little pressure and limited expectations. They are the top seed in the NFC coming off a 13-3 regular season that matched the best in franchise history, and well aware anything short of a trip to the Super Bowl would be a massive disappointment. After having last week off, the Seahawks say they’re ready for this playoff experience. “When we first got there last year, a lot of the guys didn’t know what to expect. We’re just young wanting to go out there, have fun and do our best,” Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin said. “Now we kind of expect the atmosphere, we know what we’re going into, and we know it’s going to be amped up so we’re going to be just as amped up to repeat it.” In many ways, the feelings the Seahawks had leaving Atlanta last season are similar to what the Saints felt leaving Seattle in December. The performance New Orleans put forth in a national spotlight was surprisingly unimpressive. Drew Brees was confused, Jimmy Gra-

ham was invisible and the Saints’ aggressive defense was exploited by Wilson. The 34-7 loss to Seattle was significant in forcing the Saints into challenges they faced, having to win in Week 17 just to make the playoffs and having to spend the entire postseason away from the comforts of New Orleans. They passed the first two tests, beating Tampa Bay in the season finale to wrap up the No. 6 seed in the NFC then picking up the first playoff road win in franchise history in a 26-24 win at Philadelphia last week. Now the Saints get a chance at a bit of redemption. The piercing noise of CenturyLink Field and the style that Seattle plays will no longer be surprises. And there’s a bit of history on the side of the Saints. Since 2005, No. 6 seeds are 5-2 against No. 1 seeds in the divisional round.

Kansas a college hoops hotbed

Sunflower State has most ranked teams with three

UNC still dealing with 3 years of academic scandal By Aaron Beard

The Associated Press

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Bill Self stumbled across a list the other day assembled by some self-described college basketball pundit. The idea was to list the best states for basketball in the country right now, and Self was amused to see Kansas listed second or third. The Jayhawks coach couldn’t remember which spot, exactly, but it didn’t really matter. As far as he’s concerned, it should have been listed first. The only state with three teams in this week’s Top 25, the Sunflower State is suddenly the epicenter of the college basketball world. Sixth-ranked Wichita State is undefeated, while No. 18 Kansas and No. 25 Kansas State are both in pursuit of back-toback Big 12 titles. The Jayhawks and Wildcats just happen to meet Saturday, too. “It speaks volumes to when you have three Division I schools in the state and they’re all ranked,” Self said. “I think when K-State’s good, it helps Kansas. I would think when Kansas is good, it helps K-State. And then of course, I think when Wichita State is doing the things they’re doing, obviously it brings attention to our state, which is very positive. “So I see absolutely no negatives in that stuff,” Self said. Well, maybe this negative: There’s an argument to be made that the Jayhawks, long the top dogs in Kansas hoops, are playing second (or third) fiddle to their rivals these days. “It’s pretty flattering,” Self said, “to know that a state that’s not that highly populated and you only have three Division I institutions that all are doing as well as they are.” In fact, there are only two other states that have more than one team in the Top 25 this week: Iowa State and Iowa are ranked, as are Kentucky and its rival Louisville. Otherwise, nobody else can make the same boastful claim as Kansas. Not the talent hotbed of Texas, which counts only Baylor ranked among its 21 programs playing Division I hoops. Not highly populated New York, which counts just Syracuse among its 22 programs in the Top 25. And not North Carolina, which has only Duke — and not the Tar Heels or North Carolina

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — North Carolina has been in an academic crisis mode for more than three years. An NCAA investigation into the football program in 2010 expanded into a probe of how the nation’s first public university provides academic help to athletes. It led to a discovery of fraud in a department with classes featuring significant athlete enrollments. Now, the debate of balancing academics and big-time sports at the university has been reignited by comments from a reading specialist about the reading levels of football and basketball players. “It really has just been like we’ve been under siege for the past three years,” said Lissa Lamkin Broome, a banking law professor and UNC’s faculty athletic representative. “Now to the extent that we’ve uncovered problems during this siege, that’s a good thing — to find those problems and weed them out and to try to put processes in place to hopefully ensure … that some of this stuff doesn’t happen again.” In a CNN story this week, Mary Willingham said her research of 183 football or basketball players at UNC from 2004-12 found 60 percent reading at fourth- to eighthgrade levels and roughly 10 percent below a third-grade level. She said she worked with one men’s basketball player early in her 10-year tenure who couldn’t read or write. “I don’t believe it’s true,” UNC coach Roy Williams said of the story after Wednesday’s loss to Miami. “It’s totally unfair. I’m really

State — in the poll. In fact, the state with the most Division I programs — California, with 24 — failed to land a single one in the poll. UCLA? Nope. USC or California or Stanford? Nowhere to be found. Several players on the Wichita State roster are homegrown, including sharpshooter Ron Baker, a sophomore from Scott City. Baker said he spent part of the offseason working with Kansas’ Frank Mason and Kansas State’s Will Spradling, and that they all root for each other. “We all talked about keeping the success going,” Baker said. They’re doing a fairly good job of it: u Wichita State is 16-0, one of six unbeaten teams left in Division I. After the loss of Missouri Valley heavyweight Creighton, some believe the Shockers could still be unbeaten by the time the NCAA tournament rolls around. Wichita State made the Final Four last year. u Kansas starts three freshmen, but has already beaten Duke, and its four losses all came to Top 25 teams. That’s a big reason why the Jayhawks, who are pursuing a share of their 10th straight Big 12 title, are

No. 2 in the most recent RPI. u Kansas State has rattled off 10 straight wins, knocking off then-No. 21 Gonzaga and then-No. 6 Oklahoma State along the way. The Wildcats, who also start a pair of freshmen, shared the regular-season Big 12 title with Kansas last season. “It’s saying that Kansas is a basketball state,” said Jayhawks forward Perry Ellis, who grew up in Wichita. “There’s a lot of good players that come through Kansas.” There’s no disputing that. The success of the state’s three flagship schools, in some ways, can be traced to the powerful prep programs that have popped up in recent years. There were five Division I prospects in the state last year and nine the year before, and they weren’t low-major talents, either. Ellis and fellow Wichita product Conner Frankamp went to Kansas, Semi Ojeleye chose Duke and Willie Cauley ended up at Kentucky. While the state has long had one of the nation’s premier junior college conferences, schools such as Sunrise Christian Academy near Wichita have become muststop destinations for high-major coaches.

By the time his 2½-minute program was done, the crowd was on its feet, Dornbush was on his knees throwing an imaginary punch through the air and celebrating a career best. “I’m not sure any thoughts went through my head,” he said. “I was pretty excited, pretty pumped.” And he was only the second skater of the night. “I always seem to be early, so maybe I was in my comfort zone,” he said. So was Brown in a smokin’ skate to Prince’s “The Question of U” — he even wore a black and purple costume embellished with rhinestones around his neck, and down his back

He added a lutz with both hands above his head, footwork that meshed with every element and with every nuance of the music, and speedy spins that had the crowd roaring. “Everyone has such a good chance to make the team,” said Brown, who just turned 19. “It really pushes all of us to work as hard as you can.” Defending champion Max Aaron was fourth, one of five skaters to land a clean quad. “I’m looking forward to everyone skating well,” Aaron said of the free skate, which he won in 2013. “I want to send the best men, and that’s what I’m here for.”

NEW YORK — Joe Johnson scored 32 points, Shaun Livingston helped Brooklyn dominate Nets 104 the second overtime after Heat 95 LeBron James fouled out, and the Nets beat the Miami Heat 104-95 on Friday night for their fifth straight victory. Livingston had two baskets and two blocked shots in the second OT, finishing with 19 points, 11 rebounds and five assists over 51 minutes in a sensational effort while starting for injured Deron Williams.

Ex-worker spreads lies about manager Dear Annie: I am the manager of a small bakery. I’ve had the same employee, “Sue,” for the past nine years. She is lazy and uninvolved, and I gave her a so-so review. Much to my surprise, Sue was promoted to management in another facility. I was happy for her achievement, until I heard she was telling others that she was doing the majority of my work, including ordering supplies. She added that I was suffering from Alzheimer’s and couldn’t remember anything. None of this is true. I think it may have been prompted by my less than stellar review. Since Sue has been promoted, she has been asking me a lot of questions about how to do her job, because she is clueless. She doesn’t know that I am aware of her nasty comments. Last week, another co-worker told me that Sue is bullying her assistant and making her do the majority of her work. She is already making enemies there, and because of her lack of supervision, the bakery is becoming filthy and a potential health hazard. Should I keep quiet about what I know or contact human resources (anonymously) and report her misconduct, as a few employees have suggested? I am retiring soon and don’t really need the drama. — Caught in the Middle Dear Caught: You have nothing to report other than hearsay from co-workers. You have not witnessed any of this firsthand, and you don’t know whether it is true. The fact that Sue calls you for help is meaningless. Many employees rely on others when given new responsibilities. The negative things you already know about Sue were in your review. They promoted her anyway. You can complain about the condition of the bakery, but Sue’s new co-workers should be the ones to take responsibility for complaining to human resources now.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHH Make time for a special person in your life. Taking a walk or going to a favorite spot will help both of you clear the air. Tonight: Dinner for two. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You often make the first move, but at present there is little reason to do that, as a certain admirer will be seeking you out. Tonight: Sort through your many invitations. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH You might decide to play it low-key during the next few days. Understand that you have a lot of little projects and errands to take care of. Tonight: Don’t make a fuss. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH Your idea to get a potential loved one involved in what you would like to do could be executed with ease. Tonight: Be the intriguing Aquarian. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH Hang close to home. You need to do some resting up, as you have been pushing yourself very hard. Keep it low-key, and be with your immediate loved ones. Tonight: Order out. Jacqueline Bigar

Today in history Today is Saturday, Jan. 11, the 11th day of 2014. There are 354 days left in the year. Today’s highlight in history: On Jan. 11, 1964, U.S. Surgeon General Luther Terry issued “Smoking and Health,” a report by an advisory committee which concluded that “cigarette smoking contributes substantially to mortality from certain specific diseases and to the overall death rate.”

Hocus Focus

Dear Annie: I have four adult children. I announced to all of them that I would not be holding Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners at my home and that they were welcome to spend the time with their in-laws. My oldest was hurt because she has no in-laws to go to. My son texted his middle sister to ask what was going on. My middle daughter was upset, saying I was allowing my youngest daughter to be the “winner.” My youngest daughter spent both days at a local church feeding the needy. Why was my family separated? Because my middle and youngest are not speaking to each other. When one of them is hurt or angry, they hurl vicious insults at each other. I feel bad about this, but I refuse to sit at a table with these uncaring adults and pretend that all is well. I had a nice TV dinner and a slice of sweet potato pie with whipped cream for the holidays. The losers in this mess are my grandchildren and I. I take responsibility for raising these people, but I will not allow them to ruin my day. — June Dear June: If your children make your holiday celebrations frustrating and stressful, you do not have to include them. But how sad for all of you to spend these holidays separated or alone. Please give your children one more chance. Explain to them that nastiness will not be tolerated in your home and the first person to use an insult of any kind will be asked to leave. By now, they know you mean business. Dear Annie: I loved your answer to “Last-Minute Hostess,” whose stepson and his family always show up hours late for Thanksgiving dinner. Here’s how I would respond to those who arrive late: “You’re just in time for a piece of pie!” I bet they won’t show up late the next time. — Fort Myers, Fla.
