Suits: Minors abused under state custody
State of the Union address
Complaints allege physical and sexual abuse by eight ‘youth care specialists’
Water suit vs. N.M. to proceed
The complaints name eight individual “youth care specialists” at the Youth Diagnostic and Development Center in Albuquerque who have been accused of abusing the children. The complaints also name supervisors of the facility and state Children, Youth and Families Department Secretary Yolanda Berumen-Deines, who the complaints allege allowed “an ongoing gang minded culture and adult prison mentality” at “a facility that was created to diagnose and rehabilitate juveniles.”

hree candidates are vying for a seat on the City Council representing the southwest-side District 3 for the next four years — incumbent Carmichael Dominguez, repeat candidate Marie Campos and first-time contender Angelo Jaramillo. But no matter which one gets elected, District 3 will be under-represented on the eight-member council in terms of the number of residents per councilor. The district — which includes west-side neighborhoods along Agua Fría Street, the Tierra Contenta subdivision and the Airport Road area — gained more than 13,000 new residents as a result of an annexation that was formalized on Jan. 1. But City Council district boundaries haven’t yet been redrawn. State law requires cities to redraw district boundaries every 10 years after each decennial census. Districts are supposed to be

divided in such a way that each contains roughly the same number of residents, with variable of about 5 percent. When the City Council district lines were redrawn in 2011, each of the four districts had about 17,000 residents. The annexation of an area that includes about 13,000 residents greatly increased the population within District 3 and made it nearly 50 percent more populous than the other three districts. The district also has the largest population of people who aren’t eligible to vote — including children and immigrants without citizenship, and a significant number of renters and other more transient populations who often don’t vote. In 2012, the last time voters in the district had a chance to elect a new city councilor, only 1,087 of the 7,467 registered voters in the district actually cast ballots. In the adjoining south-side District 4, incumbent Councilor Ron Trujillo is running unopposed. Profiles begin on Page A-5

State at risk to lose up to $60 million in special-ed funding
The Mountain Status box on the website of the Pajarito Mountain Ski Area says it all: “WAITING FOR SNOW.” The 750-acre ski area located on the eastern edge of the Jemez Mountains, five miles west of Los Alamos, suspended operations at 4 p.m. Jan. 12 because Mother Nature just isn’t cooperating this season. In fact, she’s been downright stingy in recent years. And that’s the main reason that the Los Alamos Ski Club, which owns the area, is proposing to transfer its assets — the land, equipment, buildings and rolling stock — to Los Alamos County. The nine-member board has called a special membership meeting to discuss dissolving the 70-year-old ski club and turning its holdings over to the county, which already operates a public ice rink, aquatic center and a golf course. Philip Rae, a scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory and president of the board, said Monday, “This is
Time Out B-11
New Mexico could lose more than $60 million in federal funding for violating rules on spending for special-education services, state auditor Hector Balderas warned lawmakers Monday. Balderas testified before the House Education Committee about a special audit he ordered of the Public Education Department’s handling of funds from fiscal years 2010 to 2012. The special audit involves violations of federal requirements prohibiting states from reducing the amount they spend on federally funded programs, including special education. The federal government can withhold future funding when it is determined that states have violated “maintenance of effort” or MOE requirements. Balderas said his office wants to find out why the department didn’t comply and why it took so long to disclose what was happening. Department officials said they have not decreased special-education funding, but that several events

Holder expected to seek death for marathon bomber
NEW YORK — Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, accused in last year’s deadly Boston Marathon bombing that killed three and injured more than 260, will probably face possible capital punishment given the violence of the attack and the evidence against him, former federal prosecutors said. The decision, expected this week, is in the hands of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who must sign off on any attempt to seek execution for a federal capital crime. Holder is almost certain to seek death for the 20-year-old former college student, given the “heinous nature of the crime,” said Michael Kendall, previously a federal prosecutor in Boston and now a defense lawyer at McDermott Will & Emery. “There won’t be a defense that he didn’t plant the bomb; the only thing there can be a real fight about is the death penalty.” Tsarnaev, a Russian immigrant of Chechen descent who is now a U.S. citizen, is accused of plotting with his brother to detonate homemade bombs near the marathon’s finish line on April 15 in the first deadly terrorist attack in the U.S. since Sept. 11, 2001. He pleaded not guilty in July to 30 counts, including the fatal shooting of a university police officer after the attack. A trial date hasn’t been set.
Mexico legalizes vigilantes, captures key cartel leader MEXICO CITY — Mexico essentially legalized the country’s growing “self-defense” groups Monday, while also announcing that security forces had captured one of the four top leaders of the Knights Templar drug cartel, which the vigilante groups have been fighting for the last year. The government said it had reached an agreement with vigilante leaders to incorporate the armed civilian groups into old and largely forgotten quasimilitary units called the Rural Defense Corps.

Two Calif. girls missing since weekend sleepover alive RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Two Southern California girls who vanished during a weekend sleepover were found near their hometown, police said late Monday. Raylynn Bolt, 12, and Diana Tourdot, 14, were found by police in San Bernardino, about 15 miles away, Riverside police Sgt. David Amador said in a statement Monday night. Police did not say anything about the girls’ condition or provide any other details about them or their reappearance, saying only that they would be returned to Riverside and interviewed by detectives there.
Florida lawmaker Radel busted with cocaine, resigns WASHINGTON — Embattled Rep. Trey Radel, R-Fla., resigned from Congress on Monday, months after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor drug charge. A first-term congressman, Radel was arrested and charged with cocaine possession in the fall. After reaching a plea agreement, he underwent substance abuse rehabilitation treatment and returned to Congress this month. Despite calls from state party leaders for him to step down, Radel had said he was committed to returning to work. But on Monday he swiftly changed course and said he would step down. In a letter to House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, Radel said his personal struggles impeded his ability to serve in Congress.
UNIQUE THIS WEEK
Vigilante groups estimate their numbers at 20,000 men under arms. Before dawn on Monday, soldiers and police arrested one of the cartel’s top leaders, Dionicio Loya Plancarte, alias “El Tio,” or The Uncle. National Public Safety System secretary Monte Rubido said the feared drug lord was arrested without a shot being fired. He said federal forces found Loya Plancarte in Morelia, the capital of Michoacan, “hiding in a closet.” The 58-year-old Loya Plancarte had a $2.25 million reward for his capture.

SEATTLE — The way Bryan Weinman sees it, he and his friends already won their Super Bowl bet. Two weeks ago, the nightclub DJ and a few buddies were sitting at a sports bar in Denver, joking about how funny it would be if the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos — the NFL teams from the two states that have legalized marijuana — made it to the big game. They decided to plunk down a $44 wager — the fee for registering the Internet domain www.stonerbowl.org — just before the Seahawks and Broncos won their conference championships. It paid off. They’re now using the site to hawk T-shirts and hats celebrating the coincidence. One shirt features the Vince Lombardi Trophy, reserved for the game’s victors, refashioned into a bong. Another features a spoof of the league’s logo, with the letters “THC” — for marijuana’s active compound — replacing “NFL.” From weed-themed Super Bowl parties to a Denver company’s “Stoner Bowl” tours of recreational pot shops, this year’s Super Bowl offers a twist on a sporting event better known for its beer commercials. Thanks to the recreational marijuana laws passed by voters in 2012, sales of taxed pot to adults over 21 began at Colorado pot shops Jan. 1 and are due to begin in Washington later this year. There have been a slew of predictable, puns, most of which have to do with “bowl” being the part of the pipe where pot goes. The Washington chapter of NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, said it would be rooting on the “THC-Hawks.” It made a friendly bet with Colorado NORML for what they’re calling “Bud Bowl XLVIII.” In deference to the importance of good officiating, High Times magazine offered a guide to spotting “Stoner Bowl” party fouls, including the offense of “holding:” “When the violator takes, two, three, maybe eight hits before passing the joint.” Derek Franklin, president of the Washington Association for Substance Abuse and Violence Prevention, said all the attention about the “Weed Bowl or the Bong Bowl, what have you, it drives home the wrong public health message.” He noted that Washington NORML’s Facebook page featured a cartoonish version of the Seahawks logo, with bloodshot eyes and a joint in its beak. “That’s the kind of thing that for kids, it’s going to stick in their heads,” he said. This Super Bowl is “incredible for the ‘Hawks, but tough for those of us in prevention.” Medical marijuana advocates also suggested the joking over the big game underscores a serious issue: The NFL doesn’t allow players, even those in states that have approved medical or recreational marijuana, to use it to ease the pain from playing.

Worldwide fears spark stock sell-off NEW YORK — Shaky economies and plunging currencies in the developing world fueled a global sell-off in stocks Monday as fearful investors pushed prices lower across Asia and Europe, but many of the drops were not as steep as last week. In the U.S. and other countries with healthy economies, investors retreated, although the selling was modest. Major indexes in Hong Kong and Tokyo fell more than 2 percent. The selling spread to Europe and the U.S., as stocks slipped across the board, but the declines were much less than on Friday, when the U.S. market ended its worst week since 2012. Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at BMO Private Bank, said he was encouraged that the U.S. losses were limited. “We have an accelerating economy and low inflation. The world isn’t falling apart.” The market turbulence was set off last week by a report from China on a downturn in its manufacturing, more evidence that the world’s secondlargest economy is slowing. That’s a big problem for Brazil and other developing countries that depend on exports to that country. Despite Monday’s widespread selling, experts say the troubles in China and elsewhere in the developing world are unlikely to derail a global economic recovery that appears to be gaining momentum.

NATION & WORLD STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS
Dems hope for start of populist agenda
By Zachary A. Goldfarb
The Washington Post
WASHINGTON — Democrats consider President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday a launching point for a year of sustained assault on Republicans over a populist economic agenda, part of an effort to focus more on bread-and-butter issues and less on income inequality. Party officials say they hope Obama’s speech will set the stage for Senate and House candidates to confront Republicans on issues such as the minimum wage, unemployment benefits and access to college education. Their minimum goal is to preserve Democratic control of the Senate, because not doing so could cripple what remains of the president’s legislative agenda. In recent weeks, some Democratic lawmakers and strategists have urged the White House to focus less on academicsounding discussions of income inequality and to simplify Obama’s message to reflect the everyday concerns of Americans. White House officials say they have long planned to emphasize such issues. The approach is notable
the State of the Union address with trips to Maryland, Wisconsin and Tennessee before an event later this week focused on long-term unemployment, which is one of the nation’s most persistent economic problems. The president is expected to announce that he will take executive actions to address a wide range of economic challenges, aides said. Republicans are preparing a counterattack, warning that Obama will compromise his ability to get anything done in Congress if he goes it alone. “He can work with us to create President Barack Obama works at his desk Monday in the opportunity and prosperity. Or Oval Office of the White House in Washington ahead of Tueshe can issue press releases,” said day’s speech. JACQUELYN MARTIN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Brendan Buck, a spokesman for House Speaker John A.

Lawmaker wants judicial finance statements online By Barry Massey
The Associated Press
New Mexicans would have online access to the financial-disclosure statements of judges under legislation proposed by an Albuquerque lawmaker. Judges and other government officials, including legislators and state agency heads, must file annual financial statements with the secretary of state disclosing their sources of
income of more than $5,000, business interests of $10,000 or more, and other information revealing possible areas where there could be a conflict of interest with their government duties. The financial statements are available in the secretary of state’s office in Santa Fe and can be obtained through a public records request. Sen. Jacob Candelaria, D-Albuquerque, proposes to require the agency to post the judicial disclosures on its
Senator proposes paying tuition in exchange for CYFD’s commitment By Milan Simonich The New Mexican
the cost of the last two years of tuition for certain social workers who are completing a bachelor’s degree, or one year of tuition for those getting a master’s degree. After graduating, recipients of the free tuition would have to work one or two years in CYFD’s protective services division. Padilla said those who sign up would be motivated to complete the assignment, both because of professional pride and as a sure way of entering the workforce without the burden of paying back student loans. Sen. Daniel Ivey-Soto said Padilla had offered wise ideas for improving CYFD. He and other senators on the Rules Committee advanced Padilla’s memorial on a 7-0 vote, saying it was an appropriate call for more detailed information, not a condemnation of an agency whose employees are overworked and underpaid. “I don’t envy the position of people who work for CYFD,” said Ivey-Soto, D-Albuquerque. “They don’t have the resources to be making wise decisions.” Ivey-Soto said Padilla’s memorial could unearth details of the foster-care system, including how emergency placements are handled. “This is a great first step by the Legislature so we’re not doing a knee-jerk reaction” to a child’s death, Ivey-Soto said. CYFD estimated that it would need to use one employee to gather the data and compile the report. Senators were empathetic, but Democrats on the Rules Committee also criticized CYFD for not sending anyone to Monday’s Senate hearing. “I’m very sorry that CYFD is choosing to watch this by webcast,” Ivey-Soto said. Ortiz y Pino was more direct in his criticism, saying CYFD’s leadership had been unresponsive to lawmakers. “Our interim committee had a hard time getting information from the department,” he said. Henry Varela, a spokesman for CYFD, said that was not the case. Varela said the department secretary, Yolanda Deines, and her staff made themselves available to legislators several times in the past year. He said the department needs specific salary reforms to rectify pay disparities. “We look forward to the Legislature supporting this targeted approach that can really impact our ability to recruit and retain caseworkers, rather than small across-the-board pay increases that don’t address the underlying issues in a broken system,” Varela said.
A legislator proposes that New Mexico spend up to $2 million a year to pay college tuition for social workers willing to take on the most demanding of jobs. These students would receive one or two years of state-paid tuition by committing to work for the department responsible for protecting children. Sen. Michael Padilla, who spent parts of his childhood in an orphanage and three foster homes, authored the bill to attract more social workers to the state Children, Youth and Families Department. Padilla, D-Albuquerque, outlined his proposal Monday for the Senate Rules Committee. He also is sponsoring a joint memorial calling on CYFD to prepare a detailed report on foster care in New Mexico. Unlike bills, memorials have no force of law, but they express the Legislature’s sentiment. Padilla said he had been working on his memorial for months before CYFD became the object of headlines because of Albuquerque 9-year-old Omaree Varela’s painful life and violent death. Omaree’s mother has been charged with kicking him to death in December. In turn, CYFD has received scrutiny and criticism because Omaree was not removed from his mother’s home. Senators on the Rules Committee said they considered it unfair to blame investigators and social workers in CYFD’s child protection division. They said these front-line workers have jobs bordering on impossible. “The fault is not with the Children, Youth and Families Department,” said Sen. Gerald Ortiz y Pino, D-Albuquerque. “The fault is with the Legislature, I think.” Ortiz y Pino, whose own career was in social work, said the state offers pitiful salaries to beginning workers in the protective services division. They make $30,000 a year, the same as a starting teacher who gets summers off. “The Legislature has not been on top of this,” Ortiz y Pino said. “People are making seat-of-thepants decisions and burning out after six months.” But he also faulted Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration for its management practices. Ortiz y Pino said CYFD returned $6 million to the state treasury last year. Instead, it could have filled some vacancies or gone to the personnel board and sought better salaries for workers handling cases such as Omaree’s, he said. Padilla said his bill proposes Contact Milan Simonich that taxpayers would cover at 986-3080.
website. They also would be available through state government’s online “sunshine portal.” The goal, he said, is to increase governmental transparency. “I just think that we best preserve public trust by having that information openly accessible to the people,” Candelaria said Monday. Republican Gov. Susana Martinez has agreed to put the proposal on the agenda of the legislative session. By
Legislative roundup Days remaining in session: 23 A Lion he was not: It’s Super Bowl week, and that meant the state Senate was especially excited about the man they confirmed Monday for the Military Base Planning Commission. Senators voted 37-0 for John D. Bledsoe, a retired brigadier general and former combat pilot who once headed the New Mexico Air National Guard. Bledsoe, 61, has a long resume, but the very last line grabbed the attention of the Senate. It said: “Detroit Lions football team member, 1975.” Sen. Bill Payne, R-Albuquerque, spoke publicly on behalf of Bledsoe, who was nominated for the commission by Gov. Susana Martinez. Payne said some people might even want Bledsoe’s autograph because he played pro football. But the Detroit Lions’ alltime roster contained no mention of Bledsoe. We asked him about the discrepancy. Bledsoe said his resume probably was misleading. “I didn’t make the team. I didn’t make the final cut,” Bledsoe said. “I probably shouldn’t have put it on there.” Bledsoe was an offensive lineman at the University of Arizona. He said he tried out for the Lions as a long snapper. He will serve at the pleasure of the governor on the Military Base Planning Commission. It is an important commis-
law, 30-day sessions are limited to the budget, taxes and other measures allowed by the governor. In the past, financial disclosures for all government officials were posted online. However, the secretary of state’s office stopped doing that after judicial officials and others voiced security concerns because the forms list residential addresses, telephone numbers and other personal identifying infor-
sion because of New Mexico’s financial dependency on military bases and the possibility of more federal cutbacks. Overriding vetoes: Last year, the Senate unanimously passed and the House overwhelmingly passed a bill to require annual reports on the fiscal impact of tax breaks and incentives offered by state government, something which is done in other states. But Gov. Susana Martinez vetoed Senate Bill 7, which was sponsored by Sen. Tim Keller, D-Albuquerque, and Rep. Luciano “Lucky” Varela, D-Santa Fe. Keller on Monday made a motion to override the governor’s veto. “Without this bill creating a tax expenditure budget, meaningful tax reform and business incentives are impossible to evaluate,” Keller said in a news release. “The result of this veto is a preemptive strike against meaningful efforts to bring accountability and transparency to our tax and budget.” Last year was the second time Martinez vetoed a taxexpenditure bill. Former Gov. Bill Richardson also vetoed a similar bill. Meanwhile, Sen. Howie Morales, D-Silver City, who is running for governor in the Democratic primary, moved to override Martinez’s veto of last year’s SB 588, which would have created a different evaluation system for teachers and principals. Morales in a statement said the bill was necessary because “educators deserve to be evaluated by those who know that system inside and out.” An override would require a daunting two-thirds vote in
mation, said Ken Ortiz, chief of staff for Secretary of State Dianna Duran. Candelaria said he is surprised to learn that no financial-disclosure statements were available online, and he’ll consider pushing for a change in state law to make clear that all of them should be posted on a government website. “It’s sort of frustrating to hear that they have stopped doing that for the other branches of government,” he said.
both the House and Senate. Archived Legislature webcasts: Ever want to watch the Legislature in action, but something like, say, work, interferes with your schedule and you can’t do it? State Rep. Jeff Steinborn, D-Las Cruces, plans to introduce a rule change that would require the Legislative Council Service to save all the webcasts so those who don’t spend their days and nights at the Roundhouse can watch at their convenience. Rep. Jason Harper, R-Rio Rancho, will cosponsor the measure. “It’s vitally important that the citizens of the state be provided the opportunity to watch our legislative process in action and learn about critical policy issues being discussed,” Steinborn said in a news release Monday. “Technology easily allows us the ability to broadcast and archive these meetings, so folks can watch them at times that fit their schedule.” The decision not to archive came in the early days of webcasting when some legislative leaders argued that saving the videos could result in political “mischief,” such campaign ads containing clips showing lawmakers sleeping, goofing off or casting controversial votes. Steinborn also said he will introduce another measure that would require the Legislative Council Service to webcast all interim committee hearings. “During this last summer, there was increased public interest in following interim committee legislative hearings related to Gov. Martinez’ shake up of the state’s
mental health system,” the news release said. Co-sponsoring this will be Senate President Pro-tem Mary Kay Papen, D-Las Cruces. Senators salivate: Stomachs rumbled on the Senate floor Monday. Senators voting during lunchtime on the confirmation of board members to the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum heard mouthwatering descriptions of the food the appointees have raised. Appointee Nick Carson’s wheat has traveled all the way from Rincon to Italy, where it became pasta. Undoubtedly, it would pair nicely with the mozzarella from fellow appointee Beverly Idsinga’s dairy in Portales. Paying the cost: Gov. Susana Martinez has signed a measure into law to provide more than $5 million for costs of the 30-day legislative session. The legislation, which is known by lawmakers as the “feed bill,” was signed on Monday. The measure also provides $16 million for the Legislature’s year-round operations. The governor used her lineitem veto powers to eliminate a provision that would have provided flexibility to the Legislative Council Service and others, such as the Legislative Finance Committee, to make adjustments within their budgets next year. Lawmakers can still provide that budget transfer authority as a provision in the state’s main budget when it’s considered later in the session. Staff and wire reports
Developmentally disabled list grows as does service wait By Patrick Malone The New Mexican
Thousands of developmentally disabled New Mexicans will continue to languish for years on a waiting list for services, even if a proposed modest bump in funding is approved by the Legislature. Currently, about 4,000 people receive services through the Developmental Disabilities Medicaid Waiver program, while more than 6,200 are on a waiting list. Developmentally disabled residents of Albuquerque can expect to remain on the list for a decade, and their counterparts in outlying parts of the state face waits of up to eight years. “You sign up tomorrow, 10 years from now if you live in Albuquerque, you’re going to get offered services, if the patterns of allocation continue to be similar to what they look like today,” said Kathy Stevenson, director of the Developmental Disabilities Support Division for the New Mexico Department of Health. Parents Reaching Out is a nonprofit organization that promotes “healthy, positive and caring experiences for families and children” and guides families through the Developmental Disabilities Medical Waiver process. “There is inherent injustice in a system that only supports some,” Wilson said. “It is not anyone’s intent, but the result is the same.”
A task force last year that studied the waits for services determined it would take infusions of about $83 million for three straight years to lower wait times to a maximum of three years. Stevenson recognizes that a budgetary windfall of that magnitude is unrealistic. For the current fiscal year, the Legislature partially funded Gov. Susana Martinez’s $5 million recommendation for the program. It received $4.6 million, which enabled the program to serve 227 more people. “Every time we don’t allocate at least 300 people in a fiscal year, then we go backwards,” Stevenson said. “The waiting list starts to outpace (resources).” Dating to 2007, funding has reached that threshold only twice – this fiscal year and the one before it. This year, the New Mexico Department of Health did not request any additional funds for the program, and Martinez has not recommended any. However, the Legislative Finance Committee has proposed $4.1 million in additional funding. Unless the program can add staff, it will not be able to cut into wait times. “We are currently maxed-out as to the capabilities of our staff to enroll people into the program,” Stevenson said. Members of the Senate Finance Committee expressed frustration about the waiting list. “It appears that we’re not making any progress,” said the committee chairman,
Sen. John Arthur Smith, D-Deming. Other committee members were particularly bothered by $8.5 million in unspent funds that the program returned to the state’s general fund last year and a dozen full-time employee positions that remain unfilled. Stevenson said applications for service that straddle fiscal years while they’re being processed led to the budgeted but unspent funds. State guidelines that require long-dark positions to go unfilled are responsible for the elimination of positions. Family and child advocate Wilson recognizes the complexities facing the program, but objects to it returning money when so many go unserved. Stevenson said she sees some promise in the recommendations generated last year by the task force. The federal Medicaid program provides about 75 percent of the funding for services to the developmentally disabled under the program, but federal guidelines linked to the money limit options for keeping costs low. Stevenson said a shift to a statebased system that provides targeted services and more flexibility in spending could cut into the wait times. “We need to value people. We need to understand that all people have needs and that all people have gifts,” Wilson said. “If we approach our policies with those principles as a given, negotiating solutions will get easier.”
Risk: Balderas says he’s ‘troubled’ by the lack of internal control Continued from Page A-1 — including the recession and that school districts spent less than allocated on special-education programming in those years — led the state to fall below the required level of federal funding. The department requested a waiver for 2010 and 2011 MOE violations. Last summer, the U.S. Department of Education granted the state’s request for the 2010 waiver, but not for 2011. The state has appealed that decision and is awaiting a hearing date. About $34 million in future funding is at risk if the appeal is not granted. In addition, the department might lose another $26.4 million for fiscal year 2012.
Balderas told the committee that his department’s regular annual 2012 audit of the education department, released last summer, resulted in 16 findings, including inadequate internal controls, procurement code violations and noncompliance with the MOE requirements. The latter finding led him to ask the education department to hire an independent auditor to perform a special audit, he said. The education department has been cooperating fully, he noted. Secretary of Education-designate Hanna Skandera said her office became aware of the 2010 problem early in 2011, shortly after Gov. Susana Martinez took office. On Monday, Balderas said the education department
waited nearly 17 months to request an appeal and a few more months before it informed the New Mexico Legislature. Balderas said he is “troubled” by the lack of internal control over the MOE measures and by the lack of communication on the part of the education department. When some of the lawmakers on the committee asked Balderas if he had any advice for them in terms of dealing with potential future penalties, he said he could not comment. But, he warned, “We could have severe legal, financial and administrative consequences,” if the feds don’t grant future waivers.
Evan Blackstone, chief of staff for the state auditor, told the committee that depending on how the federal government responds to the appeal process, the impact could range from “zero to $62 million.” Paul Aguillar, deputy secretary of the education department, told the committee that though no hearing date has been set for the appeal. Lawyers from both sides will meet in Washington, D.C., on April 8 to lay out the legal groundwork. He said the department can take the case on up to the U.S. District Court level. Aguillar said the committee members should be happy with the results of the state auditor’s regular 2013 audit
of the department, due this summer. Balderas said the special audit of the MOE issue should be finished by this summer, as well. Johnny Wilson, executive director of the Albuquerque-based Parents Reaching Out, said the state should have paid more attention to the drop in specialeducation funding. “At least four years after [the first violation] we still don’t know what happened,” he said. “I’m concerned about both transparency and the failure to report the problem.” Balderas said the state’s Human Services Department is also facing similar internal control challenges. If there is no oversight of such problems, he said, “taxpayers may pay a tragic cost.”

Marie Campos says she hasn’t seen much change in District 3 in the four years since she last campaigned to represent the area on the City Council. “Right now, I don’t seem much difference between what’s going on on the south side and what’s going on in any low-income community,” she said. “I don’t really see any changes that really show people’s lives are getting better. We still see all the crime and home break-ins,” she said. The break-ins are actually worse than before.” And she’s not terribly impressed with incumbent Carmichael Dominguez’s attempts to promote healthier lifestyles in the district through a zoning overlay that restricts alcohol sales and advertising. “To me honestly, it seems like a bit of fluff,” she said. “It’s just grandstanding. It’s not going
to have the kind of impact we need to have on our kids. It’s about lifestyle choices and giving opportunities to our youth so they can have a million liquor signs all over and they will choose a healthy lifestyle and choose to raise their family in a healthy way.” If she is elected, Campos said, her main goal would be to “try to help people have a better life on the household level, not some abstract thought that is way out there, but how does it really make a difference in someone’s day-to-day life.” She supports youth workforce development programs and walkable parks to promote healthy living. She says she wants public safety patrols to place more emphasis on controlling property crime and less on parking violations and other “harassment” of area residents. “Another thing to make a healthy community,” she said while eating tacos at La Cocina de Dona Clara on Airport Road recently, “like look at all these telephone pole lines and electric lines. If
we want to be green, why haven’t we converted those into solar energized lighting systems? There are really some basic things we could do to try to bring about a healthier community.” “And there are a lot of holistic industries here,” she said. “Why not include that within tourism — alternative health visitations that can happen? Promote that. We have a lot of people that are into alternative medicine, Chinese medicine, Native American medicine. Why not strategize that along with creative tourism? Why not go in and assess our assets and try to develop them?” She said she wants city contracting protocols that make it easier for smaller contractors to bid on city contracts, even if that means breaking projects up into smaller parts. She said constituents have told her that the contracting process is rife with hidden agendas and conflicts of interest. “Whether it just appears that way or it’s actually true that these

Incumbent city councilor touts experience in bid for re-election
Brash contender not willing to sit idle while community suffers By Phaedra Haywood

Incumbent City Council candidate Carmichael Dominguez was named after Stokely Carmichael, the civil rights-era activist sometimes referred to as the honorary prime minister of the Black Panther Party. His namesake was known as a provocateur. But Dominguez presents himself as more of an elder statesman. The former school board member says he has gained some traction on the council over the past eight years and says that’s why voters on the city’s southwest side should send him back to City Hall for a third four-year term. “Keeping me in office will be wise because I have the experience,” said the 43-year-old married father of two grown sons. “I have built relationships, not only with the governing body but with members of the community, nonprofit organizations and constituents. I know how to make sure monies get allocated properly, that District 3 residents get their share of revenue. Now is not the time to subject constituents to a learning curve.” One of Dominguez’s proudest accomplishments in his most recent term is the creation of an overlay district, which restricts certain types of alcohol sales and advertising within a four-square-mile area along the Airport Road corridor. The legislation, passed in June, also provides incentives such as reduced permitting fees to attract other types of businesses, including grocery stores, farmers markets and schools, to locate there. “From my perspective, he has a deep understanding of the community, cares deeply about his community and is a very conscientious and thorough strategist,” said Shelley Mann-Lev, substance abuse prevention coordinator for the Santa Fe Public Schools and chairwoman of the Santa Fe Prevention Alliance, which fights youth substance abuse. Mann-Lev said her comments reflect her opinion and are not official endorsements from either of those agencies. “I worked with him on the overlay, and he’s a very creative policymaker,” she said. “Looking at how he can use land-use zoning to promote community health and safety and positive development, from what I’ve seen, that’s unique among lawmakers.” Santa Fe Prevention Alliance Communications Director Maire Claire Voorhees — who worked on the overlay district and another Dominguez initiative aimed at curbing underage drinking at private parties — said she was impressed with the councilor’s follow-through when it came to the implementation of ordinances. Voorhees added that Dominguez also does a lot of research when considering new policies. “He comes to key people first and says, ‘I want to do this, what is your opinion? Is the research behind it?’ ” she said. “He’s very research driven.” “Equality, empowerment and education,” are the buzzwords Dominguez has built his political platform on. Moving forward, he said, he has his sights set on the “empowerment” of community leaders in his district, something he hopes to accomplish by identifying and training leaders “so they can start to advocate for themselves and their communities. I envision an executive committee with a bunch of subcommittees that would advise on policy,” he said. During a recent public forum, Dominguez touched on several other topics related to District 3, including the potential expansion of the Santa Fe Rodeo Grounds. He said he’s not against the project as long as surrounding neighborhoods get to have input and developers are made to deliver on their promises to neighbors concerning traffic and other impacts. He also mentioned the high rate of property crime in the city. His response to that, he said, is to support a community-oriented police chief who will listen to the community. As for job creation, he said, “for me, it’s all about education.” He said he supports the idea of making the mayor a full-time position with a commensurate salary, although he said he opposes amending the city charter to give the mayor hiring and firing power over key city officials, stating that “absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Dominguez has been endorsed by the local branch of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, whose Local
Angelo Jaramillo has written about a dozen plays, produced eight of them and acted in more than 40 stage productions. His love of theater (and reading and writing) is reflected in his manner of public speaking: brash and idealistic with a dramatic flair. During a recent forum, the City Council candidate likened life in the San Ysidro housing development on Santa Fe’s southwest side to “living in the Gaza Strip,” and characterized the city’s unmanned speed-enforcement SUVs as a “cash cow” focused on hassling common folk on their way to work. Asked if he favored a proposed redevelopment of the Santa Fe Rodeo Grounds with an indoor arena in the adjoining south-side District 4, he questioned how the space would be used, saying that if it was “just a matter of riding bulls, roping calves and violating animal rights,” other options should be considered. The native Santa Fean — and son of former Mayor Debbie Jaramillo — says he’s running for office because he believes the people of District 3 are in dire need of someone to “help create a livable, sustainable community for the people who make the Santa Fe economy work.” “If the community where you live is suffering, you as an individual have a responsibility to either do something about it, or you can ignore it like a lot of people do,” he said. “I’m not one of those people who can go on forever in my life ignoring it.” Jarmaillo said he thinks there are two major challenges facing southwest-side residents: “cultural and infrastructural.” “Culturally, there is a very dangerous mentality and a great schism and division between the local Hispanics who grew up in Santa Fe and still claim their ancestry to Spain and all that hype, and the people coming from the south escaping poverty and war and terror in their own countries and looking for new opportunity,” he said. “We’re all part of the same bloodline. We are part of the same ancestry; we share a similar culture. There is no need for this cultural and mental division, and we need to address that in order to bring a great sense of unity amongst the people.” In terms of infrastructure, he said, the area needs economic development, access to grocery stores, health clinics and early-education centers. They key to addressing these issues, the candidate said, is community organization. “I believe that’s where power rests,” he said. “I do want to give power back to the people. The south side is underserved, underdeveloped and under-represented. The diverse populations that live there, socio-economically, ethnically and individually, have great potential. I believe the south side can be a real ballplayer and powerhouse in this town, and I know there are also people on the other side of town who are very interested in the south side. What I want to do is preserve the integrity of what the community has to offer, protect the people that live there and give them the power to take their future in their own hands, create their own community the way they want to see it and not be dumped on.” Jaramillo, 37, said he experienced the contrast between life on the south side and in other parts of the city when he transferred from Santa Fe High to Capital High in his junior year. “At Santa Fe High, I was a star athlete and honor roll student,” he said. “I was learning about Shakespeare and literature and mathematics and everything,” he said. “When I transferred over to Capital High School, the only thing I learned was how to hustle people and watch my back. You had to walk those halls watching your back. Fights would break out constantly, people would jump you, drugs were being distributed. There was a lot of chaos and violence.” Luckily, Jaramillo said, he had a teacher, Ruth Holmes, who saved his life by pulling strings for him to get into a college-level English class, where he says he found his voice and learned to think. “So I went to college,” he said. Jaramillo said he grew up in a household where “open debate” was encouraged, and he got his first taste of political activism as a child, going door-to-door with his mother collecting signatures in opposition to a proposed improvement of West Alameda Street as a traffic artery. Jaramillo has a history of refusing to kowtow

3999 PEOPLE Committee voted in December on endorsements based on candidates’ answers to a questionnaire. He also was endorsed by the Northern New Mexico Group of the Sierra Club’s Rio Grande Chapter, whose political group sent a questionnaire to candidates and did some interviews and other research. A representative said an endorsement must have two-thirds approval from both the seven-member political committee and a nine-member executive committee. Dominguez is deeply entrenched in local political circles. For example, when Dominguez ran unopposed for his second term in 2010, he hired Marlene Montoya — wife of former public employees union president Joseph Anthony Montoya and co-owner of Advantage Asphalt and Seal Coating — as his treasurer. The Montoyas and their business — which received millions of dollars worth of paving contracts from the city and the county over the past decade — have since been indicted on multiple felony fraud and bribery charges for alleged improprieties related to work the company did for Santa Fe County. That same year, the Montoyas and planner Michael Harris contributed $1,000 to Dominguez’s campaign, their company contributed another $300, and City Public Works Director Issac Pino — who at the time was president of Rancho Viejo, a subdivision that gave millions of dollars worth of work to Advantage Asphalt — donated $200. Asked to comment on his connection to the Montoyas — whose cases are still pending in District Court — Dominguez said “They’ll always be friends of mine, but I haven’t spoken to them in a long time.” This year, Dominguez’s campaign treasurer is Bette Booth, longtime chairwoman of the parks advisory board, who said her removal as chairwoman of the volunteer board by the mayor in June was retribution for her asking for an audit of expenses related to a $30 million parks bond. Booth still serves as member of the board. Last summer, the Santa Fe Fiesta Council filed a police report alleging that Dominguez’s wife, Deborah Leyba-Dominguez, who chaired the Fiesta Council’s Arts and Crafts Committee, diverted $5,960 worth of Fiesta Council money into her own checking account over the course of a year. When confronted with the allegations, Leyba-Dominguez wrote the council a check for the amount she was accused of taking. As of Jan. 20, an investigation in to the matter was still pending with the Santa Fe Police Department. Asked to address the allegations, Dominguez responded via email: “To date there has not been a single charge of misconduct of any kind brought against my wife and from day one I have supported her in this unfortunate matter. I will continue to honor and support my wife in spite of the desperate measures during a campaign that have been used in a public forum in order to taint my wife’s reputation of mine.” Dominguez noted that in a city the size of Santa Fe “it’s easy to have less than six degrees of separation” but, he said, “at some point, we all have to run against each other, [and] at some point, you are going to have to make a decision that one of your friends don’t like.” Doing so, Dominguez said, won’t be an issue for him. “I don’t come from a political family,” he said. “I don’t come from the perspective that this is a steppingstone. My parents encouraged me to get involved in the community and my love for the community is what keeps me motivated.”

to authority. In 2000, shortly after finishing college, he was hired to create a theater program at the Northern New Mexico Community College campus in El Rito. When school officials demanded that he tone down the language in a controversial play he planned to stage with students from a nearby high school, he refused, lost his job and staged the play anyway off school grounds. He also clashed with the school administration while working at his alma mater, Capital High, as a regional coordinator for Gear-Up (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs), in the mid 2000s. “I was accused of trying to create a revolution there,” he said. “It had nothing to do with that. Everyone should be taught that they can control their own education, and these kids weren’t even given that chance, a lot of them.” Asked if he’d ever been arrested, Jaramillo admitted he was pulled over for “erratic driving” and charged with DUI in 1999. “I was 22 years old, and I made an error in judgement,” he said. “I paid my dues. I went through the process, and I never repeated that mistake again.” Jaramillo initially maintained that was his only arrest. When asked about a report that he’d also been arrested on a charge of shoplifting a bottle of cognac from a grocery store in 1995, he said: “Oh yeah. They told me they were going to expunge that charge, but I guess they never cleared those cases. I was 18 years old. That was a different time in my life. I don’t remember the outcome, but I know there was never any follow-up from the court system.” Jaramillo said also was detained “for no reason whatsoever” when police broke up a party he attended when he was 20, but no charges were filed against him because the police had no proof he’d done anything wrong. “They knew I was the mayor’s son,” he said. “It was political.” Only Jaramillo’s DUI charge shows up in online court records. But news reports from the time do mention the other two arrests, and the fact that Jaramillo’s mother told news media that her children were being targeted by police, as well as discriminated against by then-Municipal Judge Fran Gallegos for political reasons, which Gallegos denied. Santa Fe Police Department records also contain a report that Patricia Gallegos, Fran Gallegos’ sister, called police after having a verbal confrontation with Angelo Jaramillo while both were campaigning (she for her sister; he for his mother) on a city sidewalk in 2004. When asked in a voice-mail message about the report, Jaramillo responded with a page-long email that didn’t mention the incident directly but accused The New Mexican of trying to assassinate his character, which he said the newspaper also did to his mother while she was in office. He wrote that “people who control The Santa Fe New Mexican and other like-minded foes are terrified of powerful Hispanic people” and that “It is obvious the wealthy white power structure in Santa Fe is afraid of me and my family.” Patricia Gallegos did not return a call seeking comment. Angelo Jaramillo said in an earlier interview that voters shouldn’t assume that his mother — who had a reputation as polarizing figure in local politics — will guide his decisions. “I’ve had my differences with my mom professionally, ideologically, philosophically and personally,” he said. “That’s a relationship between mother and son. I may ask my mom what experience she has dealing with issues. But they need not worry about anyone controlling me. In the end, I will listen to the people and make sure their voices are heard.”

Continued from Page A-5 contracts are being repeatedly run through a little contract mafia,” she said, “why isn’t there a website that says these are the contracts, this is who bid on them and this is who got it and why?” Gwen Wardwell, a community organizer and former Sierra Club chairman who has worked on the campaigns of several public officials, including County Commissioner Kathy Holian and City Councilor Chris Calvert, has helped Campos on both of her campaigns. “I would trust her to not be bought, let’s put it that way,” Wardwell said. Campos, is a bookkeeper and assistant at the Garner Law Firm. Before that, she worked for the Institute of American Indian Arts doing “educational outreach,” looking at ways tribes could carry their cultural assets into the marketplace. She also founded a cultural preservation group, the Native Hispanic Institute, which pushed chile farmers in Chimayó to trademark the region’s distinctive strain of the plant. Some people — including Rep. Nick Salazar, who called her “bright” — credit Campos and the organization for spearheading the trademark issue and seeing it through to fruition. But newspaper accounts from the time reported that some locals had reservations about Campos, whom they considered an “outsider,” and complained that she was using the institute to exploit the community for personal gain. Campos originally suggested the institute would hold the chile-trademark, but that plan was scrapped after farmers protested and formed a new group that now owns the trademark. Campos’ use of a $500,000 federal grant that her organization received for a chile-growing project also came under scrutiny when it was revealed that $159,375 of it would be paid to Campos via salary and fringe benefits. Campos defended the allocation of funds, saying the pay she received for her work on the project was “within the average professional scale.” Court records showed Campos had three judgments against her in 2002 for about $6,900 each in connection with money she owed a law firm in New York. When asked about the court actions, Campos said the judgments had been entered without her knowledge while she was out of town and that she later reached a settlement with the firm, which, she said, had made a mistake in the way they billed her. Campos has lived in District 3 for about 16 years — which makes her a relative newcomer in comparison to her opponents, both of whom have lived for more than 25 years in the area. Asked at a recent forum about whether she was in favor of a multimillion dollar expansion of the the Santa Fe Rodeo Grounds in the adjoining District 4 — an idea that has been publicly debated for about a year — she said she hadn’t heard of the plan. Campos captured 30 percent of the vote when she vied to represent the district in 2010, and she thinks she has a better chance of winning this time. “I believe that I have the experience and the ability to really understand on all different multiple levels, what needs to happen in District 3 to make it very livable on the household level.” Contact Phaedra Haywood at 986-3068 or phaywood@ sfnewmexican.com.

Council must approve the transfer. “While this is not a done deal by any stretch of the imagination,” Long said, “it seems to have support from local government.” County administrator Harry Burgess said the ski area would fit into the county’s overall economic development plan, and he believes the council will be receptive to the discussion, “although we don’t know all the issues associated with inheriting the ski area.” But, he added, “The last thing we want to do is lose a ski area here.” Over the past year, Burgess said, the club and the county have had some discussions about how they could work together on developing recreational activities in the area. But those discussions have not involved the transfer of the property to the county. According to Rae, the fixed costs for the ski area are about $1 million a year. In a good year, revenues are split between the memberships and season pass holders and day ticket sales. Obviously, when the area isn’t open, it doesn’t sell day tickets.
Pajarito has a limited snow-making operation that allowed it to open its beginner area over the Christmas holiday. The system depends on runoff that in good years flows into a pond at the top of the mountain. That pond is empty, Long said. The club has about 2,000 members, although not all of them are entitled to vote. “As tragic at it is [dissolving the club],” Long said, “I think it will work out very positively for skiing here.” Pajarito will feel less like a club if this proposal goes through, but Rae said he wouldn’t expect any dramatic changes, although the county might be able to undertake some capital improvements that would reinvigorate the facility. Meanwhile, should there be a big snow dump in the next couple of months, Pajarito is prepared to reopen. “The ski area is on standby,” Long said. “We are fully capable of operations as soon as we are able to get some snow.” The members’ meeting is scheduled for at 6 p.m. Feb. 4 at the Crossroads Bible Church on East Road.

Quality Oriental Rug Services, Inc.
While no longer trekked across vast mountain
ranges or a staple of decorating choice amongst traveling traders, rugs of Oriental origin still hold a special place in the hearts of Santa Feans. Perfect for adding a touch of warmth and color to larger tile floors, specialty rugs often suffer from inordinate amounts of foot traffic wear and tear. Due to their specialty nature, it takes a deft hand and careful craft to restore these domestic works of art to their previous grandeur. That’s where Simin Medghalchy and Quality Oriental Rug Service in Santa Fe shines, by bringing quality craftsmanship and attention to detail in restoring and repairing rugs of Silk Road origin. Medghalchy, originally from Iran, learned the art of sewing at an early age. After a career in fashion design in Houston, a vacation to Santa Fe drew her to the City Different permanently. Repairing and cleaning rugs for more than 20 years now in Santa Fe, Simin has repaired or cleaned hundreds of quality, one-of-a-kind rugs.
Simin Medghalchy uses her expertise and tools of the trade to repair a carpet.

“I’ve helped hundreds of owners repair and clean their rugs,” said Medghalchy. She takes great care in educating her clients on the care, craft and history of their rugs. “Each rug is a piece of art, and can tell us a tremendous amount about their origin, the artisan that made them, their families and even the history of the area where the rug was made.” Simin is one of only two people in Santa Fe with the technical knowledge to properly repair and clean Navajo rugs as well as Persian, Afghan and Turkish rugs. “When working with a client and their rug, it’s important to me that I share with them as much knowledge about the care of their rug,” said Medghalchy. “The majority of causes of damage to a rug come from not knowing how to care for it properly, and there are not many people that know how.” She hopes that educating rug owners allows their families to enjoy the rug for generations. “There is often a great deal of history in rugs like these, and by learning to care for them correctly, they can be
enjoyed for generations.” Cleaning these specialty rugs regularly also comes with a health benefit, according to Medghalchy. “Because of the advanced age of these works of art, they hold on to lots of allergens, pollen and dormant bacteria,” she said. “A thorough cleaning with natural soaps not only brightens the colors in a rug, it also reduces the release of dust and bacteria that happens when using a commercial-grade steam floor cleaning system.” Paying a little more for a cleaning goes a long way towards keeping the rug in museumlike shape as well. “The harsh commercial chemicals used in most cleaning businesses can damage these rugs,” said Medghalchy. “Each of the rugs that comes to my business is unique, so I work with the client to make sure they get the care and customer service that ensures each work of art is treasured for a long time,” said Medghalchy. “I try to keep my store small, without a lot of overhead, so that I can work individually with each client to educate

Police, asking for additional documentation so we could proceed with the case. However we never received anything further. Therefore, on 10-22-13, our office was forced to close the case. We could not proceed with prosecution because we did not receive a completed case from law enforcement.” A supervisor allegedly witnessed the attack by Aragon, according to the lawsuit and news reports at the time. But he was not segregated from the children afterward and was allowed to go into the showers, where he located the 16-yearold he had assaulted previously, shoved him against the shower wall “struck him in the face then pressed his body against the nude child’s genitals” while warning him not to speak to police about the attack, according to the complaint. One complaint also says that two other children housed at the facility said that Aragon ordered them to attack one of the victims named in one of the complaints. Aragon, who was 29 years old at the time the attacks were alleged to have taken place, was the focus of a December 2011 story in the Albuquerque Journal titled “Back in the System, But in a Different Way,” just a few months before the incidents allegedly occurred. The story noted Aragon’s own troubled youth — he did time for an aggravated assault charge at the age of 15, according to the story — and his desire to give back to the community he had once been a part of by working at the state run facility for adjudicated youth. “I’m able to reach out to them in a different way,” Aragon was quoted as saying. “I can relate to them.” The New Mexican requested the initial incident report on the incident that led to Aragon’s arrest from state police spokesman Sgt. Emmanuel Gutierrez at 12:27 p.m. Monday, but the agency wasn’t able to produce the report by close of business. Asked to respond to Anderson’s statement around 4:30 p.m., Gutierrez said he would need more time to research the case before responding. The lawsuits were filed by Santa Fe attorney James A. Hayes, who has offices in Santa Fe and Las Cruces and has specialized in juvenile criminal defense in the past. In them, he accuses the individual actors, supervisors and the state department of Children, Youth and Families with various violations of state and federal law, including “cruel and unusual punishment” and violations of his clients civil rights. Supervisors and Secretary Berumen-Deines also are accused of “failure to train and supervise” and “negligent operation or maintenance of a public building,” among other things. The lawsuits seek compensatory and punitive damages for the plaintiffs as well as court costs and legal fees. Contact Phaedra Haywood at 986-3068 or phaywood@ sfnewmexican.com.
Farmers to be sentenced in fatal listeria outbreak DENVER — Two Colorado cantaloupe farmers who pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a deadly listeria outbreak in 2011 are set to be sentenced. Eric and Ryan Jensen, the two brothers who owned and operated Jensen Farms in Holly, Colo., are scheduled to appear in federal court Tuesday. They pleaded guilty last year to misdemeanor counts of introducing adulterated food into interstate commerce, which carry penalties of up to six years in prison and $1.5 million in fines. The outbreak traced to tainted fruit from the farm caused 33 deaths and sent scores of people to hospitals. People in 28 states ate the contaminated fruit, and 147 were hospitalized. The Jensens have asked for probation, saying jail time is excessive because justice has been served with the imposition of new food guidelines. The Associated Press

Downtown LOCAL NEWS nightclub Water suit against N.M. to proceed Rouge Cat closes doors
Texas contends some farmers, residents are being deprived of their share of Rio Grande By Susan Montoya Bryan
The Associated Press
ALBUQUERQUE — The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that Texas can proceed with its lawsuit against New Mexico over management of the Rio Grande. Texas contends that groundwater pumping near the TexasNew Mexico border has resulted in Texas farmers and residents being deprived of Rio Grande water. New Mexico argues that downstream users are getting what’s required under a compact between the states and that the
Supreme Court should have let lower courts consider the dispute. New Mexico Attorney General Gary King said Monday he was not surprised by the court’s ruling. “I am confident that the court takes such state-to-state disputes very seriously, and we look forward to being able to tell New Mexico’s side of the story and to have our day in court,” King said. The Supreme Court gave New Mexico 60 days to file a motion seeking the case’s dismissal. Texas would then have an opportunity to respond.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality first asked the Supreme Court to weigh in more than a year ago, alleging that New Mexico was violating the 1938 Rio Grande Compact that governs how water is shared by Texas, New Mexico and Colorado. King argued that a 2008 agreement between the federal government and two irrigation districts, one in Texas and the other in New Mexico, unfavorably changed the allocation of water for his state. Officials with the Elephant Butte Irrigation District, which serves farmers in southern New Mexico, said the agreement was aimed at heading off a legal battle between the two states that
could ultimately harm Doña Ana County farmers by cutting off their right to use groundwater. Nearly all of New Mexico has been mired in drought for the past several years, leaving stretches of the Rio Grande dry at times and reservoirs along the river at record-low levels. Without any promise for moisture this winter, farmers are still making hard choices about whether to grow staple crops such as chile, onions and pecans. Those farmers who made it through last year had access to wells for irrigating because there was not enough Rio Grande water left for New Mexico. This year, irrigation officials have yet to make predictions about how much water might be allocated.
Venue, known as only gay bar in the City Different, opened in May 2010 By Chris Quintana The New Mexican
Another downtown Santa Fe bar has called it quits. Resident DJ Oona Bender said Rouge Cat, 101 W. Marcy St., had its last night on Saturday. Bender described the decision to close the restaurant and nightclub as a gradual one, but said ultimately the bar’s owner didn’t want to go further into debt. “The irony is that business was just starting to pickup,” Bender said. “We had a good run. It’s just one of those things where we gave it the best we could.” Bender attributed the closure to a lack of the younger demographic in Santa Fe and a still-struggling economy. Bender said she tried to ensure that the Rouge Cat was a favorite for DJs and electronic musicians, and she added that management had put money into a good electrical system for light shows. She said events that had been planned at the Rouge Cat, such as the Valentine’s Day-themed show called “Sex on Vinyl,” will be relocated, though she doesn’t yet know where. The New Mexican reported that the nightclub opened its doors in May 2010. Rouge Cat also held the distinction of being known as the town’s only gay bar, though Bender said the nightclub hadn’t aimed to be a gay bar. Bender also said she doesn’t think the town necessarily needs a gay bar as gay culture becomes more accepted. “The notion of a gay bar is starting to become less necessary,” she said. In 2013, two other downtown bars, the Ore House at Milagro restaurant and bar and the Stats Sports Bar, also closed shop.

Man gets prison for assault of tribal officer
Statue of de Vargas returns to downtown park
ALBUQUERQUE — An Albuquerque man has been sentenced to more than two years in federal prison for assaulting a tribal officer at Taos Pueblo. Prosecutors say 22-year-old Dallas Chase Barth was sentenced Monday to a 27-month prison term followed by two years of supervised release. He was arrested in August based on a criminal complaint charging him with assault with a dangerous weapon. According to court filings, Barth took a van belonging to a U.S. Postal Service contractor outside a convenience store in Española. He then led officers on a high speed chase to Taos Pueblo, pursued by two tribal police officers in marked vehicles. Authorities say Barth was arrested after he made a U-turn and drove toward one of the tribal officers, who narrowly escaped injury.
A life-size bronze statue of Spanish conquistador Don Diego de Vargas that was removed from Cathedral Park after it was vandalized was reinstalled Friday after it underwent repairs. The estimated 550-pound statue was lifted from its place on the west end of the downtown park by crane in December and trucked to the Brett Chomer Studio for repair work after the artwork was fractured and nearly toppled over. The statue of the man who led Spanish colonists in reclaiming Santa Fe from Pueblo Indians in 1692 now stands on a reinforced pedestal. Debra Garcia y Griego, executive director of the city Arts Commission, said the city plans to keep a close eye on the statue in an effort to prevent further vandalism. “Both the parks department and the police department are keeping an eye on the sculpture ALBUQUERQUE — A Belen man conand activity in the park,” she said Monday. “So victed in a 2006 fatal accident involving hopefully we’ll have it under close monitoring.” drunken driving has been arrested in Valencia
Man convicted in 2006 accident charged again
County in another fatal accident. Authorities say 27-year-old Jacob Williams has been jailed in lieu of $20,000 bond on charges of vehicular homicide and aggravated driving while intoxicated. KOB-TV reports that the Saturday accident killed 51-year-old Daniel Sanchez and critically injured his 11-year-old daughter. They were thrown from a motorcycle into a roadside field. Williams had been released from prison after serving part of a six-year sentence on convictions of vehicular homicide and driving under the influence. Those convictions stemmed from a 2006 accident in which a motorcyclist was killed and a passenger critically injured.

Blue Corn proposes tap room at Plaza site By Phaedra Haywood The New Mexican
The prime commercial spot overlooking the Santa Fe Plaza that formerly housed Marble Brewery could be home to a new tap room as soon as next week. The Santa Fe City Council is scheduled to hold a public hearing Wednesday to consider a request from Blue Corn II Inc. for
a small brewers off-site license to allow beer sales in the space, which includes a second-floor balcony above the San Francisco Street sidewalk. Blue Corn II Inc. and the Santa Fe Arcade building are owned by local businessman Gerald Peters. Marble Brewery — whose owners include Peters’ two sons — vacated the space Dec. 28 after trying unsuccessfully to renew their lease for the location.
The new business will be called The Draft Station and feature beers from Blue Corn Brewery and the Chama River Brewing Company, which Peters also owns, as well as “guest taps” from other New Mexico microbreweries, according to Jim Hargrove, president of Santa Fe Dining, the group that manages Peters’ hospitality holdings, which also include the Rio Chama Steakhouse on Old Santa Fe Trail next
to the Capitol. Hargrove said state law allows breweries to have three off-site liquor licenses and so far Blue Corn Brewery only has its southside Santa Fe location on Rodeo Road permitted as such. The city is scheduled to consider the request at a public hearing set to begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall, at the corner of Lincoln Avenue and Marcy Street.

Lawyers for a man who has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against the Public Regulation Commission have filed a motion accusing the commission of knowingly withholding evidence in the case and are asking the court to impose sanctions on the agency. Maurice A. Bonal — who is the son of a former Santa Fe city councilor, real-estate broker and liquor license broker with the same name — was the Public Regulation Commission’s information-technology systems manager in 2010 when he said that he discovered agency employees were accessing pornography and other inappropriate websites contrary to state policy. According to a Whistleblower Protection Act complaint he filed in 2011, Bonal reported his findings to his superiors at the PRC and shortly thereafter he was fired amid allegations of misconduct and insubordination, which he denied. According to Bonal’s complaint, between the time he reported the inappropriate Internet activity and the time he was fired, PRC Insurance Fraud Bureau chief Ben Montoya (one of the employees whom Bonal had reported as having accessed inappropriate sites) retaliated by opening a criminal background investigation into Bonal. The file associated with that investigation — and the PRC’s alleged failure to produce it in its entirety in response to discovery requests — is the basis for a motion filed by Bonal’s attorneys last week asking the court to sanction the commission. According to that motion, the PRC committed “willful violations” of a discovery order including “submitting false discovery responses” and “false deposition testimony.” The motion accuses the PRC of producing only part of the file when the agency allegedly knew other parts existed, including documents stored in the garage of one of the investigators. The motion also alleges that at least one commission witness lied in a deposition by saying the entire file had been produced. “Based upon the inventory letter … and the presentations by PRC counsel,” the motion alleges, “the defendant PRC had actual knowledge of the the existence [of the] 176 page ‘garage file’ investigation documents 6 days prior to the … deposition, and the Defendant PRC and its counsel deliberately chose not to inform Plaintiff of its existence.” The motion asks District Court to force one PRC witness to address discrepancies between his sworn testimony and the facts (as interpreted by Bonal’s lawyers) and to enter a judgment of liability against the agency, or alternately, to prohibit any testimony about the criminal history investigation during the trial. It also asks the court to impose monetary sanctions against the PRC for attorneys’ fees in the amount of $20,000. PRC spokesman Aurthur Bishop said in an email Friday that the agency “generally” does not comment on litigation, “particularly as it relates to personnel matters.” A ruling by District Judge Raymond Ortiz is pending.

Solar energy Police: Student blaze an industry apparent suicide attempt thrives in New Mexico By P. Solomon Banda and Steven K. Paulson The Associated Press
By Staci Matlock The New Mexican
The solar industry is alive and growing. More than 1,100 New Mexicans make their living in the solar energy industry now, according to a new report. Nationally, the solar energy industry added more than 18,000 new jobs from September 2012 to November 2013, according to The Solar Foundation. The nonprofit solar advocacy foundation released the National Solar Jobs Census 2013 on Monday. Information in the report was culled by labor market analysts at BW Research from the Solar Energy Industries Association and through direct correspondence with solar businesses around the country. George Washington University and the Interstate Renewable Energy Council advised the report’s authors. The number of jobs added reflects the steady growth in the megawatts of solar energy added across the United States. Cheaper solar photovoltaic prices, new technology and government tax incentives have helped boost the industry. In New Mexico alone, the cost to install solar photovoltaics on houses and businesses declined 15 percent last year, according to the solar association. One of the most interesting findings in the report tallied the reasons why customers purchase solar power. About 70 percent of the solar businesses said their customers told them they were buying solar energy systems to save money and because the price was competitive with power provided by utility companies per kilowatt hour. Few listed energy independence or reducing pollution as the reason they were buying solar power systems. In total, 142,698 people nationally work in the solar industry, according to the report. The industry is expected to continue growing, according to the report, which says that almost half the solar businesses in the country expect to hire more employees this year. Most of those employees worked fulltime on solar-power related jobs, more than half of them as solar installers. Another third of the workers were in marketing or sales, manufacturing and project development. Solar installers earned on average $20 an hour while production and assembly workers averaged $15 an hour. About 20 percent of those hired into solar industry jobs are women and almost 10 percent were veterans, according to the report. In a state-by-state solar industry map developed last year, The Solar Foundation reported 76 solar companies in New Mexico. The state ranked 10th for the number of houses (37,463) powered by the sun. It also ranked 30th on the price of electricity. And according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, even though solar energy capacity has made great gains in the past three years, it is still dwarfed by New Mexico’s reliance on coal, oil and natural gas for energy.

WESTMINSTER, Colo. — A 16-year-old boy set himself on fire at a suburban Denver high school on Monday in an apparent suicide attempt that left him critically injured, authorities said. The boy didn’t make any threats before starting the fire in the cafeteria at Standley Lake High School at about 7:15 a.m., Westminster Police Department spokeswoman Cheri Spottke said. A custodian was able to use a fire extinguisher to put out the blaze before it could spread, Spottke said. Several other students were in the cafeteria at the time, but none were injured. Investigators went through the school with bomb detection dogs as a precaution, and no devices were discovered, Spottke said. Investigators are also
talking to students, faculty members and family members to find out what happened, she said. “We don’t have any indication that there’s any threat against the high school. We do believe that this is a suicide attempt,” she said. The boy hasn’t been named. Spottke didn’t know how the student set the fire, which caused extensive smoke in the building. The school was closed for the day and students were sent home, Jefferson County Public Schools spokeswoman Lynn Setzer said. Students without cars were taken by buses to a local middle school, where they were picked up by their parents. No classes will be held at the school on Tuesday either, but the district will provide counseling to students there in the morning. Monday’s incident was the latest to affect a Denverarea school in recent weeks.
On Thursday, Columbine High School, where two gunmen killed 13 people in 1999, went on high security alert after receiving a series of threatening phone calls. The alert applied to a half-dozen other schools in the area, in the same school district as Standley Lake, but was lifted the same day. On Dec. 13, student gunman Karl Pierson, 17, fatally shot Claire Davis, a 17-year-old classmate, at Arapahoe High School in Centennial before killing himself in the school’s library. Pierson reportedly had threatened a teacher and librarian who had disciplined him last year and allegedly was seeking that teacher when he entered the school, investigators have said. Colorado state lawmakers are considering a bill to spend about $250,000 to continue a hotline students and teachers can use to report threats and bullying anonymously.
Colorado teens visit Roswell after shooting
Settlement reached in police shooting ALBUQUERQUE — The police shooting of an Iraq War veteran in 2010 will cost Albuquerque about $8 million. The Albuquerque Journal reported Monday that a tentative settlement for $7.95 million has been reached with the family of Kenneth Ellis IIII. A jury reached a $10.3 million verdict in the cast last March, but the city appealed. City Attorney David Tourek says the settlement is tentative because it requires a judge’s approval. He says it’s in the best interest of taxpayers because there could have been attorney fees and interest on top of the jury award.
ROSWELL — Students from a Colorado high school who experienced a recent school shooting have visited a New Mexico middle school where a 12-year-old recently opened fire. The Roswell Daily Record reports that students from Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colo. came to Roswell on Saturday to talk to Berrendo Middle School students about coping with the shooting. Arapahoe saw its own school shooting Dec. 13, when senior Karl Pierson shot student Claire Davis and killed her, before turning the gun on himself. The 15 Colorado teenagers provided Berrendo students with advice for getting through the trauma of a campus shooting. Two Roswell students were wounded when a young gunman entered the crowded middle school gym Jan. 14 and fired three times from a 20-gauge shotgun.
Gallup hospital to end behavior health service Faculty morale called low at New Mexico Tech GALLUP — A financially troubled
hospital in Gallup says its retrenching will include closing its behavior health program. The Gallup Independent reports that the move by Rehoboth McKinley Christian Health Care Services means the hospital will no longer offer its 28-day alcohol detox service. CEO Barry Mousa says the program has been losing money for years and that other agencies now have similar services. Mousa estimates that between 15 and 20 employees will be laid off when the program shuts down at the end of February. Mousa says the hospital also is considering the possibility of downgrading its hospital status to allow it to reduce the number of beds to 25 from 60.
ALBUQUERQUE — A longtime faculty professor at New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology says the school has run aground, with faculty members leaving amid low morale and disjointed leadership. Former geophysics professor Richard Aster’ resignation letter says there’s been a steady erosion of collegiality at the Socorro school known as New Mexico Tech. According to the Albuquerque Journal, New Mexico Tech President Daniel Lopez, acknowledges there are morale issues. He blames state budget cuts resulting from the Great Recession. Lopez also says he’s taking steps to give faculty members more voice. The Associated Press

e-Voices Our Web readers speak out: Our View: Martinez focuses on jobs, education, Jan. 21 [Susana] Martinez focuses on Martinez. If she was “ focusing on jobs and children, she would ﬁll the jobs she is able to ﬁll that are vacant according to her own ‘Sunshine Portal.’ That would go a long way toward ending so much unemployment, poverty and hunger, maybe even take New Mexico off its honorary status as a Third World nation.” J.B.
Just because some government job remains un“ ﬁlled doesn’t mean that it should be ﬁlled. We should
examine those unﬁlled jobs and see if they should be eliminated instead of ﬁlled before we waste taxpayer dollars giving somebody’s lazy cousin a slacker government job. The purpose of government employment should be to provide beneﬁcial services to the taxpayers, not just to serve as de facto welfare for the unemployed, impoverished and hungry.” P.K.
Reports: Dimas outspends rivals in mayor’s race, Jan. 23 Please remember that Bill Dimas took all of the “ $60,000 of public money but refuses to participate

Tri-State rate hike: You have a voice
n my 21 years as CEO of Kit Carson Electric Co-op, the goal of this cooperative has been to provide the best reliable, safe, electric service at the most affordable cost. Currently we are contesting Tri-State Generation and Transmission’s latest proposed rate increase (nine in 12 years or about 95 percent over that time frame) at the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission. Of your bill for electricity, approximately 70 percent is what Kit Carson is charged by Tri-State to supply us power. Since the merger with Plains Electric, our former electric supplier, in which Tri-State became our sole supplier of electricity, our rates have been raised eight times. Each time, Kit Carson Electric Co-op has protested the increase. Under the settlement approving the merger, the Public Regulation Commission, the New Mexico co-ops and Tri-State agreed that if three state co-ops protested a rate increase and the PRC found just cause in those protests, the PRC would suspend the rates and have a hearing to set rates that are just and reasonable. The state Legislature also enacted a law to allow for three co-ops to challenge rates. In the most recent rate increase proposed by Tri-State, three other co-ops joined the protest. They, along with Kit Carson, represent more than half the total co-op members in New Mexico. In
December 2013, the PRC suspended the rate increase for 2014 and ordered a hearing. Recent comments made by Tri-State representatives at a New Mexico co-op meeting are troubling and directly contradict representations made by the company to state co-ops and the PRC to get the merger they wanted approved. One of the primary purposes of the merger was to bring immediate rate relief, which it did, but also to allow our members to have stable rates, which we have not. Instead, we have been faced with a 95 percent-plus increase in the last 12 years. Another written promise concerned the three co-ops protesting a proposed rate increase, thus triggering the PRC’s limited regulatory jurisdiction and ability to set rates. Now, Tri-State says that it never had any intention of honoring that agreement and will fight to make sure the PRC cannot set rates. This, after Tri-State took tens of millions of dollars from state co-ops and members as the price for joining Tri-State. Tri-State also is suing the PRC in federal court, arguing the state statute is unconstitutional. This amounts to, at a minimum, badfaith bargaining and raised serious questions regarding the ability of rural co-ops members to place any faith in Tri-State. We can’t allow this to happen. We are asking the PRC to look at the validity of the
merger and determine whether the contracts have become voidable. Kit Carson officials estimate the proposed 2014 increase would raise member’s electric bills an average of about 7 percent to 10 percent. As of the end of November 2013, the protests filed by Kit Carson have saved members approximately $1.3 million, or about 7 percent. If the PRC reverses its prior decision that the protests are invalid, Tri-State’s rate increases would be effective immediately. I believe that Tri-State would immediately attempt to recover the lost revenue from 2013 in a new rate feature called the “regulatory charge,” which could double the increase. For the above-mentioned reasons, as well as our need to persuade Tri-State to increase Kit Carson’s percentage for renewable solar power production, we ask you to attend the PRC open meeting at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. Or, contact the PRC and ask commissioners to deny a Tri-State rehearing request and proceed to a rate hearing. Ask also that the PRC investigate the merger and contracts, because TriState has indicated it will not honor the agreement with the PRC, the state and the New Mexico co-ops. Make Tri-State accountable for its promises and actions. Luis Reyes is the CEO of the Kit Carson Electric Cooperative in Taos.
I am sorry, but I am not so terribly impressed by “ Bill Dimas. I have no connection to any of the cam-
paigns, but when a candidate doesn’t want to debate his rivals and take questions from the public, it raises a few question in the back of my mind. Who is he? What is he? Is he all signs and no brain?” P.H.
Bill Dimas does not feed into the politics of de“ bates. Why? They are all set up. You will not ﬁnd the
working-class people at these forums. Why? Because the forums are 99 percent held … by special interests who have already committed to a certain candidate. The questions are all set up in order for a certain candidate to have all the ‘right’ answers. The room is ﬁlled with campaign volunteers rather than the community. Forums are nothing but a sham and don’t even address the real problems of Santa Fe. I mean, plastic bags, water in the river, trails, nightlife — in other words, non-issues? Maybe you have not attended forums before. I have attended them for years, and they do nothing to help choose a candidate. I go by their experience in the city of Santa Fe.” G.M.
Dozens rally in support of gun bill, Jan. 22 Here we go again, another attempt at ‘feel good’ “ legislation that in the end will do nothing to deter
criminals, stop criminal acts, keep innocent victims safe or reduce crime. So-called ‘gun show loophole’ laws have loopholes so big you could drive a truck through them. The largest is that there is nothing in the law that would prevent two people at a gun show agreeing to consummate a ﬁrearm sale off of the gunshow property. If I’m a private buyer and I see a gun for sale from a private seller, we just step across the street and conclude the sale in a parking lot. So, there you have it. The question becomes, ‘Why even consider or pass legislation that would have no effect whatsoever on the crime or criminal problem?’ Answer: There is no reason at all to consider or pass this bill.” M.G.
These tools are no more dangerous than your car. “ Should we limit the sale of vehicles from only licensed
dealers? What about giving your child a car? Shouldn’t we use the government to record and decide who deserves to own such a deadly weapon? What about pressure cookers and pocket knives? Surely, we can’t have Americans armed with such implements that they can so easily transfer to criminals!” O.M.

I’m very sorry to hear this. We need a diversity of outlets, and we need the public to enjoy active, musclepowered sports in the mountains. Climate change is hurting our snowfall along with cyclical drought. We need politicians to get serious about closing coal plants, helping China close all its coal plants and cutting back on our use of oil. Meanwhile, people can get very good service and products at REI and Alpine Sports.” T.R.

Spending big to be part of Super Bowl
ven in an age of hundreds of satellite and cable TV channels — not to mention Netflix and programming on our smart phones and tablets — the Super Bowl is the one television event that is guaranteed to reach a majority of the American population. If you are advertising a company or a social cause, the NFL’s championship is guaranteed to deliver eyes and buzz. But, just having a commercial seen by millions of Americans is no guarantee of luring customers. In fact, analysis by the advertising research group Communicus suggests Super Bowl ads that will cost at least $4 million for 30 seconds — not to mention additional millions paid for celebrity endorsements and production costs — are not terribly effective. They don’t generate a blip in sales. Even so, advertisers still rush to write big checks to purchase these brief moments of airtime for one reason: to be part of an event that is uniquely American, bringing together every aspect of U.S. culture. Every year, the broadcast features a military flyby and color guard, a self-consciously pop culture halftime show, and of course, the celebration of capitalism that is Super Bowl advertising, in which the very best creative minds in the industry try to
keep us from getting up and heading into the kitchen for more nachos. The commercials feature talking animals, love stories, action-adventure, comedy (always) and Clydesdales (also always). The commercials are mini-narratives that reflect themes currently resonating in our collective psyche. Whether or not it is a flattering reflection is up for debate on an ad-by-ad basis and will be analyzed by the usual suspects. Some ads arguably contribute to an unflattering reflection (for example, see almost every GoDaddy.com ad). Still, for better or for worse, to advertise on the Super Bowl is to associate your brand with the American brand. Another reason these expensive ads sell out months before the event is that for those companies who buy airtime on Super Bowl Sunday, there is a bigger venue and a longer game. For controversial ads, there is also the potential for free replays on news programs, blogs and social media. In fact, critical successes or abject critical failures both hold the promise of making an ad go viral, with YouTube standing by to replay it as often as necessary. Make a big splash during the Super Bowl, and your ad is
guaranteed to have a shelf life that goes far beyond the airtime purchased. According to the study by Communicus, last year’s ads worked best for new product introduction, with Beck Sapphire’s “Singing Goldfish” commercial leading the way. And when you think about it, this makes sense. After all, many viewers are already sipping Budweiser products and crunching Doritos while watching homemade Doritos ads during the game. For new advertisers, the Super Bowl is a chance to run with the big dogs and establish their companies as successful enough to be players in that other gameday matchup, between advertisers and the wallets of football fans across America and around the world. In the end, companies are willing to pay exorbitant fees to get the American audience to associate their brands with the biggest cultural event of the year. They gain credibility just being seen during the same broadcast as such advertising icons as the Budweiser Clydesdales — which can have more long-term significance than whether we run out the next day to buy the latest gadget, or who won the game.

Bregman needs to apologize to Democrats
am disappointed and appalled at the remarks made by Democratic Party Chairman Sam Bregman against Democrat Sen. John Arthur Smith of Deming. Bregman basically referred to Sen. Smith as a Democrat in name only and said Smith should change party affiliation. Bregman forgets that the Democratic Party consists of a large tent with numerous opinions and ideas, ranging from extreme liberalism to more conservative ideologies. All must be respected. Many Democrats like myself consider themselves to be “JFK Democrats” or “Blue Dog Democrats.” We are individuals who are conservative on financial issues and are moderate to liberal on social issues. Bregman bashed Smith because the senator has not allowed a vote on a proposed constitutional amendment to take
money out of the state’s approximately $12 billion permanent fund to pay for early childhood education. Smith is being fiscally sound. Smith also has taken more conservative positions on this year’s proposal to raise the minimum wage to $10 an hour statewide because of its effect on rural communities. Earlier, he even sponsored one of Gov. Susana Martinez’s bills to hold thirdgraders back who can’t read. While increasing the minimum wage might be needed, the increases the Democratic Party are pushing are too extreme. They will lead to inflation and cost jobs. I am a Democrat because I support the “working man.” If there are no jobs, then this hurts the country and state on a whole and makes the income gap wider, with more people on welfare. This would lead
to a higher national debt, which is not good for the country. Minimum-wage increases need to be carried out wisely so jobs can be maintained. Holding third-graders back who can’t read is the right thing to do. The only way our children will get ahead is to have a basic level of education. If our children can’t read, then we are setting them up for failure. What’s more, it is a shame that some legislators want to reduce the graduation requirements for our children. That is just wrong. Bregman should remember that he represents the entire Democratic Party of New Mexico, not just the liberal wing of the party. Mr. Bregman, you not only owe Sen. Smith an apology, but also the rest of the party members. Francis P. Page is a Democrat who resides in Albuquerque.

COMMENTARY: LAWRENCE J. KORB AND DOUG BROOKS
Try a Q&A for State of the Union T his Tuesday, a joint session of Congress and those Americans who bother to tune in will be subjected to a presidential infomercial. The State of the Union address, required by the Constitution, once launched government policies and clarified national goals. Today, the event is little more than a pep rally with obligatory standing ovations. There is no proscribed method in the Constitution for how the State of the Union should be delivered to Congress. Until Woodrow Wilson chose to deliver an address in person in 1913, presidents usually just sent letters to Capitol Hill at the beginning of the year. Why not convert this relic into a useful tool that would invigorate American democracy and engage a disengaged electorate? Let’s upgrade the State of the Union to something like “prime minister’s questions:” In parliamentary systems, this is when a prime minister responds in person to elected representatives, usually in a live broadcast. By adopting this format, President Barack Obama could stage a captivating event that the American electorate would find far more interesting. What passes for our political dialogue — surrogates and talking heads — encourages little more than bluster. Direct questions to the president by elected representatives could do much to rekindle our democratic spirit. This wouldn’t need to be a circus: Disrupting the dignity of the event with flippant or ridiculous comments could lead to excoriation, as we have seen in the past. Remember that after he shouted “You lie” during Obama’s 2009 State of the Union, Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., was rebuked by the House and apologized. In 2010, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito was criticized after mouthing “Not true” during the address. There have been stinging repercussions when audience members have strayed outside the bounds of decorum, lead-

Second PAC is not a charm
O ing us to believe that propriety would abide in a Q&A. The president could open the State of the Union with a statement of no more than 10 minutes that, as before, would recognize national accomplishments of the past year and outline new initiatives. Then, the floor would be turned over to the vice president, in his role as president of the Senate, and the speaker of the House or the ranking minority leader. They would moderate together. Party leaders could select up to seven of their representatives to ask prepared questions, similar to the town hall format of some presidential debates. Every representative would be allowed to submit questions to party leaders, and some questions might be chosen at random. The result: a candid discussion between the executive and legislative branches. Lawmakers would be able to raise their constituents’ concerns to the level of the presidency — to truly and visibly represent the people. Representatives would be in the spotlight, and their behavior could have the same positive or negative consequences that the president faces after a State of the Union address. Insightful, valid ques-
tions could build a representative’s political credibility, while those less deserving of the office might expose his or her buffoonery. There is no shortage of issues that could and should be addressed by members of both parties and the president. For example, Obama might be asked how long he intends to leave troops in Afghanistan if he can reach a security agreement with Hamid Karzai, what he will do if the Geneva conference fails to end the bloodshed in Syria or what sanctions he is relaxing on Iran as part of the deal to limit its nuclear enrichment program. Every newsworthy topic — National Security Agency surveillance, the Keystone pipeline, fracking, immigration law, whether enough “young invincibles” are signing up for health care, the prospect of future government shutdowns — would be fair game. Changing the State of the Union is risky, but Obama, at least, has the oratory skills and confidence to pull it off and, most important, set a precedent. Done well, the event could inspire the public and energize — or in Obama’s case, re-energize — a presidency.
Is it too much to ask that, at least once a year, we move beyond sound bites to something more substantive and, well, democratic? The president is not royalty, and there are precious few times when he must face his political opposition in an open forum. And while the State of the Union’s current format makes for great inside-the-Beltway entertainment — and even for great drinking games — for the rest of the country, the speech is little more than an opportunity to watch basketball or catch up on Breaking Bad. A new State of the Union could reconnect a disengaged electorate to its government — and celebrate our representative democracy. Lawrence J.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
City Council isn’t prepared for plastic bag ban
he City Council should have done its homework before imposing the plastic bag ban on citizens. It appears councilors didn’t take into account potential legal issues, nor did they take into account the fiscal impact the law would have on businesses, as well as city residents. They bought into the idea because a few people complained of “seeing plastic bags flying all over the city and getting stuck on trees and fences,” which I’ve yet to see. I truly believe that if the governing body is intent on passing a law like this, councilors should at least place it on the ballot for the voters to decide in the upcoming election. Does anyone remember when stores used only paper bags? The City Council at the time banned paper bags because of all the trees that were being destroyed. Now we’re going backwards. C. Martinez
Time for change Most Americans see 2013 as much less than a banner year and look forward to 2014 with optimism for filling the American dream. Where is America on the international scene? Where are the American citizens
of high moral fiber, the John Waynes of America? America at one time had the best educational system in the world. Our national debt is so enormous that it would take every working American paying $123,000 to clear this debit. America has become a cesspool of immorality, with our leaders looking at special interest groups to seek re-election instead of standing on principles that made this country strong. America, much like Rome in it glory days, is decaying from within. Americans have forgotten the God that made us strong, and have elected to divorce ourselves from anything godly and good. If America does not wake up and return to the God of our forefathers, we will harvest the consequences of our decision. It is not too late. Make the changes so urgently demanded, or suffer the consequences. Ted Peperas

The truth is that herding cats is far less demanding that leading Democrats. New Mexico’s Democrats have enormous ethnic, political and cultural diversity. Like Santa Feans, each expects rapid responsiveness to his/her needs and concerns. You are daily taught lessons in negotiating unity — the most essential skill our mayor must have. The state chair has the opportunity to work closely on the campaigns, and then the programs, of a very large portion of New Mexico state and federal senators and representatives. There are very few items in the Santa Fe city budget that do not require state or federal assistance. The state chair becomes a trusted collaborator with the president and other national officials. How can this relationship not pay years of dividends for our town? Earl Potter
nce again, supporters of Javier Gonzales could end up hurting the mayoral candidate more than the folks running against him. Gonzales, who is taking $60,000 in taxpayer money to finance his campaign, now has two political action committees that have committed to supporting his candidacy for mayor of Santa Fe. Should these PACs choose, they could inject thousands of additional dollars into the three-way race for mayor — exactly what public financing is supposed to ensure does not happen. We have heard the reason why these groups exist: to be ready to stand up should other PACs show up. The PACs also are committed to supporting a progressive vision for Santa Fe. They don’t want their favored candidate to be unarmed. So far, they have all the weapons. (Progressive Santa Fe and Santa Fe Working Families are the two groups. To date, Progressive Santa Fe has spent $1,925 on research to a D.C. firm and $782 to BioGeo Creations of Albuquerque for website development. Santa Fe Working Families has zero dollars on hand at its most recent filing.) No other candidate PACs have registered except those supporting Gonzales — and to be clear, the PACs are legal and have a right to join in the debate. The question for voters is whether, after committing their tax dollars to keep money out, they want outside groups in the city race. Gonzales has been clear in disavowing a connection to the PACs. As he told reporter Daniel J. Chacón last week: “What they do, their participation in this, is not my concern. My concern is us taking our message directly out to the voters.” Gonzales needs to repeat his message: He does not want or need these groups. Without the buzz of too much money, Santa Fe residents have the opportunity to talk to all three would-be mayors about not just their visions for the future of Santa Fe, but about what in their characters makes them ready and able to lead. It’s a personal, one-on-one campaign. Because despite all the noise — whether about finance violations, endorsements, outside PACs or outlandish supporters — essential conversations are taking place across town. For that, the candidates deserve praise. The focus on the streets is on issues and character, where it should be. We have seen City Councilor Patti Bushee out knocking on doors, watched City Councilor Bill Dimas and his supporters blanket neighborhoods and observed Gonzales meeting with voters, one house party at a time. If voters aren’t asking questions and demanding answers, they have no one to blame but themselves. Naturally, we believe voters are better served if all three candidates speak out at public forums. Gonzales is there. Bushee is there. Only Dimas has declined to debate his opponents. All of that effort would be wasted if big money from the outside takes over. PACs can register. PACs can exist. But let’s trust that they don’t start advertising, sending out mailers or otherwise dumping money into a race that doesn’t need questionable spending. Such actions would be hard to forgive.

Women may be contributing members and are as much entitled to the same protection as the male contingency.

The reason for the bridge sitting all alone is that the contract for the bridge construction was let before the contract for the new highway. The bridge is now being used by rabbis and other animals to cross the river.

anta Fe newlyweds Diane Dorsey and Ronald Helman are embarking this month on another new venture: an online apparel and accessories company. Their luxury, casual clothing will be available on their website, dorseyhelman.com, which is expected to go live Feb. 14. By design, this is a mostly New Mexico operation. The pieces in the clothing collection are sewn in Albuquerque by a women’s collaborative. The minimalist palette and styles are inspired by New Mexico artists such as Agnes Martin, whose former home is near the couple’s studio in Galisteo. The tote bags are made in Silver City by a New Mexico saddle-maker. The coffee mugs are fired here by a New Mexico potter. And Dorsey herself makes one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry using beads from around the world. Yes, the scarves are silk-screened in New York — but they’re hemmed in New Mexico. Even the fashion models are New Mexicans, as are many of those working on the business side of the operation. Nothing they sell is made in China. Dorsey and Helman say they have invested their life savings in their online endeavor. “I wanted to take a risk and make something by myself,” Dorsey said. Helman, 62, is a life coach and jazz trum-

After 10 years of brewing cider as a hobby, the owners of Santa Fe Cider Works are quickly completing their manufacturing facility at 4363 Center Place, Unit 9. “Santa Fe Cider Works will be New Mexico’s first locally made, hand-crafted hard cider to be released on the market,” said Michelle Vignery, who owns the Bruce business with Jordana “Jordy” Dralle. Krasnow “This is not your typical massBusiness Matters produced bubbly product. We press all of our apples on site and really take the time to work with each batch individually. We use three or more varieties of apples in every press and an authentic English cider yeast in order to create a complex yet balanced product.” The flagship beverage, dubbed “The Cider Different,” finishes out at 7 percent alcohol by volume and is served in 750 ml bottles, said Vignery, a former public schoolteacher. Santa Fe Cider Works will host open house evenings and mini tours at its processing plant on the following dates, and bottles will be available for sale at $14. u 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15 u 4 to 7 p.m. on the following Fridays, Feb. 21, Feb. 28 and March 7. They also will offer cider by the glass at both Second Street Brewery locations starting Valentine’s Day and will sell it at restaurants and liquor stores around Santa Fe.

There are T-shirts, plain or with original graphics, made in cotton modal; simple dresses with a mandarin collar and bell sleeves that can be worn with leggings or heels in a viscose/lycra fabric; and French terry sweatpants. The flowy fabrics, including some with tone-on-tone dots, are custom-made in Los Angeles by Texollini. The pieces come in soft blue (stormy weather), pink (lotus) and off-white (birch), as well as green (kelp), beige (prairie sand), rich brown (peat moss) and black. All items are machine washable. They are made in sizes 1-5, which corresponds to extra small to extra large. All will be sold primarily through the online store. Dorsey and Helman will have no brickand-mortar retail outlet, although Santa Fe Dry Goods, Workshop, the spa at the Inn and Spa at Loretto, as well as Substance in Taos have placed orders for some of the pieces. The clothing prices range from $60 to $295. Helman describes them as the kind of things for “relaxing at home or going out with friends.” The tote bags in butter suede come in both a large ($375) and a purse size ($325). They’re sewn by J.S.

All 1,600 pieces in the clothing collection were sewn at the Southwest Creations Collaborative, an Albuquerque contractmanufacturing business founded by Susan Matteucci, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Organized as a nonprofit, it also sews for Sense, a local resort wear company, and makes the kimonos used at Ten Thousand Waves, among other things. The nonprofit helps its 40 employees, many of them immigrant women, to earn GEDs, gain citizenship and offers paid time off for them to go to their children’s schools.

The city of Santa Fe’s GRT gravy train seems to have rolled off the tracks in November. Since the new fiscal year started July 1, gross receipts tax revenue had not only bested the year before but had returned to pre-recession levels. The buoyant spending gave the city a $2.9 million increase over the 2012-13 fiscal year. But November gross receipts tax revenue was down 2.27 percent — a loss of $151,544 and the first negative month so far of the 2013-14 fiscal year. The numbers were reported last week. The entire shortfall looks like it can be attributed to one sector — construction, which tumbled 29 percent, a loss of $216,000. So with seven months down, the GRT increase over a year ago is now 5.5 percent, which still gives the city an additional $2.7 million. The biggest spending month in Santa Fe — December — will be reported right around Valentine’s Day. And there is little doubt that with a shorter legislative session and a vanishing ski season, January and February might also show declines. Contact Bruce Krasnow at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Santa Fe Brewing Co. in Big Easy Smith’s aids The Food Depot A little bit of Santa Fe is heading to New Orleans. According to NOLA.com, the website of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Santa Fe Brewing Co. will begin selling its specialty beer in Louisiana at the end of the month. “New Orleans will gain another well-respected craft beer when Santa Fe Brewing Co. arrives in late January. The brewery, founded in 1988, is the oldest in New Mexico.” Brian Lock, the brewery’s president, said in the article: “The craft beer movement is taking hold over the country including New Orleans. I think the sooner we can establish ourselves as a premium craft throughout the country the better off we will be in the long run.” To read more on the story, go to www.nola. com/drink/index.ssf/2014/01/santa_fe_ brewing_co_comes_to_n.html
Smith’s Food & Drug Stores has contributed $13,260 to The Food Depot in Santa Fe as a result of customer support for the company’s recent in-store campaign, Bringing Hope to the Table for the Holidays. One hundred percent of check-stand contributions received were converted to Smith’s gift cards for local food banks to purchase their most-needed items. Bringing Hope to the Table for the Holidays raised in total $156,000 for 39 food banks and pantries throughout Smith’s seven states of operation. In addition to this seasonal support, each day Smith’s stores donate nutritious but unsellable foods to local food banks. “We greatly appreciate the work of our local food banks and their network partners to provide food for so many in need,” said Marsha

La Fonda in Four Diamond club It’s hard to walk through downtown Santa Fe and not stumble across a AAA-rated Four Diamond Hotel.

Many Santa Fe hotels have been honored for several years, but new in 2013 is La Fonda, which just underwent a renovation project to give many of the historic rooms new bathrooms and more up-to-date amenities, a major consideration in the ranking.

Russian activist spotlights corruption By Nataliya Vasilyeva The Associated Press
SOCHI, Russia — An interactive website launched Monday by anticorruption activist Alexei Navalny paints a vivid picture of the suspected cost overruns and conflicts of interest at the Sochi Winter Olympics. Russia has spent about $51 billion to deliver the Sochi Olympics, which run Feb. 7-23, makAlexei ing them the most Navalny expensive games ever, even though as a winter event it hosts many fewer athletes than summer games do. Navalny claims that Russia spent twice as much as necessary to build at least 10 of the Olympic venues — including the Bolshoi Ice Palace, the Fisht Stadium for the opening/closing ceremonies and the speedskating arena. Allegations of corruption have dogged preparations for the Sochi Games for years, as reported by The Associated Press and others. Navalny’s new website — Sochi.FBK.info — combines data gathered during his own investigations along with media reports and other activists’ analysis. Using colorful graphics, the website makes a wide range of data accessible in English and Russian. “Athletes are not the only people who compete in Sochi,” Navalny, who finished a strong second in Moscow’s mayoral election last year, wrote on the website. “Officials and businessmen also took part in the games and turned them into a source of income.”

Without Kirk, Lobos may turn to Williams
By Will Webber

Championship teams just find a way. For The University of New Mexico men’s basketball team, the jury is still out on whether it can complete a three-peat in the Mountain West Conference, but there’s little doubt that the Lobos have proven to have a degree of toughness when leaving the friendly confines. Heading into Tuesday night’s nationally televised game at Utah State (12-7, 2-5), New Mexico (15-4, 6-1) sports a 5-0 record in games played on an opponent’s home floor, and is
8-2 in outings outside of Albuquerque. That includes a perfect 4-0 record in MWC games, making it the best start in league play on the road in 30 years. Tuesday’s game is perhaps the biggest challenge to date. Aside from the fact that Utah State’s Dee Glen Smith Spectrum is one of the more daunting places for opponents to play — the Aggies are 234-24 at home under current head coach Stew Morrill — the Lobos must do so without the services of starting center Alex Kirk. The 7-footer missed Saturday’s win at Colo-
University of New Mexico guard Kendall Williams, left, is having a strong encore season after winning the Mountain West Conference’s Player of the Year award as a junior. His scoring is up, and he leads the MWC in steals and assists. He’ll lead the Lobos into Tuesday night’s nationally televised game at Utah State.

Wawrinka still stunned he won Open By Jocelyn Gecker
The Associated Press
MELBOURNE, Australia — After winning the Australian Open, some players have jumped for joy into the Yarra River. Many pop champagne and indulge in late-night celebrations. Most set new goals and start thinking about the Grand Slams they want to win next. This was not the Stan case for Stan WawWawrinka rinka, who woke up Monday morning groggy but sober, and still stunned that he had beaten Rafael Nadal to win his first Grand Slam title. “I still don’t completely realize what’s happened. It still feels like a dream,” Wawrinka told reporters, squinting in the sunlight for the winner’s traditional day-after photo shoot on the banks of the river beside Melbourne Park. Handed a bottle of champagne and told to spray it in celebration, he politely obliged and then put it down. Wawrinka was and still is pessimistic about denting the dominance of Roger Federer, Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray — the so-called Big Four who accounted for all but one of the previous 35 major titles. “I really never dreamed about winning a Grand Slam,” he said, clutching his trophy. “I don’t know about doing it again. But I did it, and no one can take it back.” The morning after the biggest day of his career, Wawrinka was more subdued than overjoyed. His night went late but was tame. There was no big dinner or any food at all, no partying, just spending time with his

Super Bowl megastars, All-Pros — and everyone else By Barry Wilner
The Associated Press
JERSEY CITY, N.J. — The names are hardly as familiar as Peyton Manning and Richard Sherman. Yet, for all the megastars and All-Pros in this Super Bowl, there are guys like Jermaine Kearse and Paris Lenon. Like Michael Robinson and Terrance Knighton. Malcolm Smith and Manny Ramirez. Players who have gone from pretty much nowhere on the NFL landscape to the doorstep of a championship. Perhaps no one is more grateful for the opportunity to grab a ring than these men. Some are veterans who fit the term journeymen. Some are youngsters who went in late rounds of the draft — or were ignored altogether. All recognize they will play some

sort of role in Sunday’s championship game. Some might even sneak into a starring part, the way running back Tim Smith did in 1987 or cornerback Larry Brown did in 1996. “You never know who it might be,” said Knighton, the massive defensive tackle coming off a sensational AFC championship game performance. Knighton could be the poster child for players who graduate from the depths of the NFL — “I did my four years in Jacksonville,” he said — to

the top of the pro football ladder. He’s been practically unblockable in the last few weeks, rising from obscurity to recognizability as a leader of an improving defense. “Well I think that’s naturally going to happen when you’re in the middle of the defense and you’re the anchor of the defense,” the 335-pound Knighton said. “I feel like I’m a natural leader; I think wherever I am, people just gravitate towards me, and with that it requires a responsibility to help other guys and bring them along.”
agent away from the Jaguars. “I’ll always put it on players,” Fox said of Knighton’s emergence from a who’s-he to a watch-out-for-him performer. “As a coach, we spend a lot of time trying to define players. Basically, our approach is, ‘Don’t let us define you. You are going to be held accountable. It is going to be based on your performance, where you are on the depth chart, how much you are going to play. All of those things, you earn or don’t earn.’ “Really, everything Terrance has done, he did [himself].” Ditto for Seattle’s Kearse, who played at the University of Washing-

A kid of six in 1950, former player Barcimio Sicupira recalled how “my dad punched the radio and broke it in half” after Alcides Ghiggia scored in the 79th minute. Rubens Minelli, who became a national championship-winning coach, was playing an amateur tournament that July 16 afternoon, his attention focused not on his game but on the unfolding drama being broadcast by radio from Rio de Janeiro. “Everybody was sad, they couldn’t believe what happened,” he said in an interview. “It was a national disgrace.” For a sporting mega-event like the World Cup to become truly memorable, host nation success can be vital. Jessica Ennis, Greg Rutherford and Mo Farah put the wow into
Continued from Page B-1 rado State with what UNM is officially calling “an undisclosed leg injury.” What his future status is remains a mystery, but it is likely he will not return to action until at least the Lobos’ return from the current road trip. Kirk’s absence forced head coach Craig Neal and his staff to get creative with their starting lineup against CSU. In Kirk’s place was 7-foot freshman Obij Aget. Mostly, though, it was a mix-n-match rotation that finally paid dividends. Neal instituted a four-guard lineup against Colorado State that made things easier for senior point guard Kendall Williams to drive to the basket. Neal said that the same lineup will be used in greater detail against Utah State. That look allowed the Lobos to run the 2-3 zone on defense more than they typically do, a sign that Utah State will see plenty of zone as well as man-to-man. “It’s hard for a 6-9 guy [Cameron Bairstow] to cover to [the] corner,” Neal said. “When we play the 2-3 zone with Cam and Alex, it’s hard. But when we’ve got four guards out there you can almost play a shell defense; four out with one guy playing the lane.” That one guy in the lane was usually Bairstow. Against Colorado State, he completely shut down Rams forward J.J. Avila, holding him to 1-for-12 shooting and nearly 11 points below his team-leading scoring average. Bairstow will, as usual, be put to the
the 2012 London Games when they all won gold for Britain on “Super Saturday” at the Olympic Stadium. Australian Cathy Freeman did the same for the Sydney Olympics in winning the 400 meters. If Brazil triumphs in July, one imagines the nation of carnival will treat the World Cup to street parties even more epic and delirious than when France became the last host to win in 1998. The ghost of 1950 would be exorcised. And if that doesn’t happen? Ron DelMont, managing director of FIFA’s office in Brazil, believes Brazilians are too enamored with soccer to turn their backs on the World Cup should their team tumble out early. “We expect that Brazil will
make it to the final. But let’s just say that it doesn’t happen. Every indication that we’ve had so far about the tournament in Brazil is that it will be a celebration of football, irrespective,” he said. “There will be still a lot of enthusiasm about what happens, whoever the eventual winner will be. Brazil, because of the culture and the love that it has for football, is going to defy all the other previous host cities … It will still be a celebration all the way to the end.” Fernandes seconded that. “How will people react if we lose along the way? They won’t react well,” he said. “But they’re also football fans … Interest will continue in the World Cup if Brazil is eliminated. But that ghost will continue to haunt us.”
test again against Utah State. That much is expected when you average 20.3 points and grab 6.9 rebounds a game. He will see a lot of Aggies center Jarred Shaw and forward Kyle Davis. Shaw is the team’s leading scorer (15.2 points) and trails only Davis in rebounding, averaging 7.8 to Davis’s 8.6. There is little doubt that Kirk’s ability to clog the lane and alter shots will be missed. This could, however, be a game where UNM’s four-guard lineup comes in particularly handy. As San Diego State learned the hard way with an overtime escape against Utah State last Saturday, the Aggies’ perimeter players can light things up when they get into a flow. To that end, Neal lauds the play of Williams. The MWC’s leader in assists and steals, he is largely overlooked as a defender. “I’ll take that kid — anybody in the country I’ll take him,” Neal said. “He’s been through the wars with us and been through the wars with our program.” While Bairstow’s play is certainly garnering him serious consideration for MWC player of the year honors, Neal said it’s not wise to overlook Williams — something that is too easily overdone, for some reason. The reigning MWC player of the year is averaging more points, more rebounds, more assists and fewer turnovers than he did last season, yet somehow finds himself flying under the proverbial radar in what is becoming a brilliant encore campaign. “Cam’s been one of the best players in

However, the schools have not played one another since the fallout of Lobogate in 1979. That’s the only time they’ve met in the last 52 years. u The Aggies’ loss to San Diego State was their first MWC setback at home. That leaves SDSU, up to No. 5 in this week’s Associated Press Top 25 poll, as the only team without a home loss in conference play — and the regular season has almost two-thirds of the way to go. u The school record for best road start in conference play is 5-0 by the memorable 1977-78 team that started 24-3, climbed as high as No. 5 in the polls, won the WAC title and then lost in the first round of the NCAA Tournament to Cal State Fullerton.

SAO PAULO, Brazil — Ask Brazilians how their national team will fare at the World Cup and chances are they will predict a run at least to the July 13 final, if not a win. Understandable optimism, given that Brazil will be playing at home and has won more World Cups (five) than any other soccer power. But what if the host nation is booted out early? Very possible with defending champion Spain or 2010 runner-up the Netherlands looming for Brazil in the first knockout game and a tough path beyond that. Are Brazilians good losers? Would they sour the tournament mood in defeat? Or swallow their disappointment with a few moraleboosting caipirinha cocktails, crank up the samba and party on? Like a kid who picks his scabs, Brazil has never allowed the wound of its last World Cup loss at home to fully heal. That was way back in 1950, before most Brazilians alive today were born. But the national pain of Brazil 1, Uruguay 2 has been handed down from one generation to the next like an heirloom. Seemingly everyone knows about the stunned silence of 173,000-plus who packed Maracana Stadium expecting to see Brazil lift the trophy, how fans wept and never forgave goalkeeper Moacir Barbosa for letting Alcides Ghiggia score Uruguay’s winner past his lefthand post. “We carry this trauma. It’s really a trauma,” Deputy Sports Minister Luis Fernandes. “Probably around 90 percent of the Brazilian population wasn’t born in 1950, and we still carry this trauma. I wasn’t born in 1950, and this trauma, I’ve been socialized, brought up in terms of this trauma.”

to be No. 1.’ But I feel it’s so far for me, so far from my level. That’s why it’s not my goal.” Relentlessly aggressive on the court, Wawrinka gives the impression off-court that he doesn’t want to revel in his success for fear of jinxing it. Occasionally, he allows himself to be proud. “Now I know I can beat everybody. The big stage in a Grand Slam doesn’t matter,” said Wawrinka, but added that he’s in the same position as Juan Martin del Potro, whose title at the 2009 U.S. Open is the only one of the past 35 majors not won by the Big Four. “Since [del Potro] won
the U.S. Open, everybody wants him to win another Grand Slam. But it’s not that simple.” He doesn’t like to think too far ahead, but indulged one question about what it will be like to walk through the halls of Rod Laver Arena next year and see his picture up on the walls with the other champions. “First thing I will do, I’m going to come back and take a picture of myself,” Wawrinka said. “Again it’s a dream. It’s big. When I see all those champions, for me, they’re the real champions. To be there is just something crazy.”

League backs youth concussion protocols
Legislation provides for grant program
New Tigers manager won’t forget that his players are still people
By Samantha Henry
By Jeff Seidel
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Legislation for federal funding to help protect student athletes from concussions got the National Football League’s backing Monday in the shadow of the stadium where the Super Bowl will be played this weekend. NFL Senior Vice President Adolpho Birch joined two New Jersey lawmakers in support of legislation drafted following the 2008 death of a New Jersey high school football player. The proposal by Sen. Robert Menendez and Rep. Bill Pascrell involves national concussion guidelines under development for schools and youth sport programs by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The legislation would authorize a five-year grant program to bring those guidelines to school sports programs nationwide. The bill would authorize $5 million in first-year funding, with additional funds to be provided as necessary for the remaining four years. It would be used to help states train athletic staff and help ensure schools have adequate medical staff coverage and can implement the CDC guidelines expected to be established by next year. Birch, the NFL’s senior vice president of labor policy and government affairs, joined the lawmakers for a news conference at an East Rutherford high

school a little over a mile from MetLife Stadium, which will host the Super Bowl on Sunday. Several student athletes from the Harry P. Becton Regional High School’s Wildcats football squad — a few of whom spoke about concussions suffered during play — joined them at the podium. “In the NFL, player health and safety is a priority for us,” Birch said. “But we need to be clear that it’s not just our players who we’re thinking about, and who we’re worried about, it’s all players, it’s athletes at all levels, in all sports. We believe that youth sports should be a particular focus.”
The NFL’s support for the legislation comes as it tries to settle a lawsuit by thousands of its former players over its handling of concussions. The two sides have negotiated a proposed $765 million deal to settle thousands of lawsuits consolidated in federal court in Philadelphia. Amid concerns the fund may not last the promised 65 years, plaintiffs’ lawyers are preparing for a fairness hearing expected sometime this year. Menendez said federal funding was needed at the school sports level “to ensure that every child who takes the field is properly protected and that their parents have peace of mind.”
The Contact Act was drafted following the October 2008 death of Montclair High School football player Ryne Dougherty. The 16-year-old Dougherty suffered a brain hemorrhage and died after his family said he was prematurely returned to action following a concussion. The Contact Act hasn’t been enacted, but Pascrell said he hoped the CDC guidelines and the NFL’s endorsement would help get it passed. “They were a reluctant partner in the beginning,” Pascrell said of the NFL, “but they’ve jumped into this in a very positive way.”

Avello, who speaks with a Goodfellastype Brooklyn accent even though he grew up in upstate New York, says this is the biggest change he’s seen in the past decades. “Even Al Michaels on [Sunday] Night Football will say, ‘Wow, they covered the spread,’ ” he said, grinning in disbelief. When casinos figure out how to attract fantasy sports players to the Strip, profits may soar even farther. Some of this growth was hidden by the recession. People scale back on gambling before other discretionary spending, and the handle— the total amount of money wagered — plummeted in 2009. It was the only fiscal year of the past ten that saw a decline in sports betting. Oddsmakers believe the previous Super Bowl record, set in 2006, would have been upended years before 2013 if not for the
hard times. Last fall, gamblers set records in September, October and November. In November, the last month for which statistics have been released, sportsbooks handled $490 million in wagers. On Sunday, the Super Bowl will be played outdoors at a site with cold weather for the first time, and the industry is worried that snow could throw off the handle when the Seahawks meet the Broncos, favored to win by 2.5 points, in New Jersey. Casual gamblers might be spooked, unable to predict how the weather would affect their favored team. The surge in betting means that sportsbooks are now expected to contribute to the bottom line. So while casinos are throwing elaborate parties for Super Bowl weekend, selling table service and luxurious suites, don’t expect to get so much as a free bottle of water at the sportsbook. At Wynn, a customer has to bet $150 before the book will think about giving out a drink ticket. Books remain less profitable per square foot than table games, where the house always wins. An oddsmaker’s goal is to neither win nor lose on the games, but to get equal money coming in on both sides — and clean up in commissions. This commission, also known as the vigorish or juice, amounts to about 4.5 percent of the handle at most Strip sportsbooks. Don’t start wringing your hands for the

sportsbooks, though. They’ve only lost twice on the Super Bowl in the past 20 years. And they have another advantage. While betting is becoming more popular, the physical books are becoming smaller. That’s in large part because of the demise of one sport in particular: horse racing. In days past, racing aficionados would hang around the books and watch contests from morning till night, with new ones starting every four minutes. For the past decade, football has represented nearly half of the sportsbook handle, with most gamblers buying their tickets well ahead of the games. “If you walk in to any sportsbook, 99 percent of the time the place is mostly empty,” said RJ Bell of Las Vegas, Nev.based Pregame.com. Anjelko Markobis, 22, is one of the rare young men who still like to hang out in that smoky, mahogany environment. He spent a recent afternoon at the Wynn sportsbook. He switched between watching a soccer game he had $100 riding on and monitoring the shifting Super Bowl line on a huge LED screen, bantering with his friends about whether he should have placed his bet when it was still at 1.5. Markobis used to spend his free time with Blackjack, but now focuses on sports betting, placing three major bets a week. “It’s more entertaining,” he said, “to watch a game than sit at a table.”

The show announced Monday that O’Donnell will be a guest on the daytime gabfest on Feb. 7. O’Donnell’s tenure as a panelist on the ABC show seven years ago was notably stormy. O’Donnell said after leaving that she had experienced something like posttraumatic stress disorder, and show creator Barbara Walters said she resented the way O’Donnell dumped on the show.

PARIS — They’re helmeted, mute and mysterious, and they’re suddenly the pride of France. Duo Daft Punk did something no other French music group has done: Brought home four Grammy Awards in one night. Congratulations poured in Monday from French media, tweeters and bloggers — and even the U.S. Embassy in Paris. “See, France is capable of winning!” said commentator JeanJacques Bourdin on BFM-TV. The multiple wins for the electronic music pioneers Sunday night were a rare bit of good news in France amid bleak reports on unemployment (stuck around 11 percent) and the president’s personal life (complicated). The men behind the masks, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, kept their French accents carefully concealed at the Grammys. The two, who only appear in public behind helmets, left it to Pharrell Williams to accept their awards. While those in the French masses celebrate Daft Punk’s repeated trips to the podium at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, French officialdom has been strangely silent. Daft Punk’s work didn’t get a single nomination for the 2013 French music awards Victoire de la musique. Perhaps that’s because, as critic Pierre Siankowski put it, “We have a problem in France with the mainstream.” Something as universally popular as the never-get-it-out-of-your-head “Get Lucky” isn’t seen as “real art.” That wasn’t a concern for the Recording Academy voters, who handed Daft Punk and Williams the trophy in every category they were nominated in at the Grammy Awards: Album of the year for Random Access Memories. Record of the year for funk-electronic anthem “Get Lucky.” Best pop duo or group performance. And best dance or electronica album. Random Access Memories also won for non-classical engineered album, an award that went to their engineer. Daft Punk, produced by Columbia Records in the U.S., broke into the global sound consciousness with their 1997 album Homework and its hit “Around the World.” They went on to win Grammys in 2007 for best dance recording and best electronic dance album. Then, they reached for something radical: live instruments. Their combination of real musicians, R&B rhythms and electronic expertise is seen as the key to the success of Random Access Memories. Siankowski, the chief editor at pop culture weekly Les Inrockuptibles, isn’t afraid to be a fan, praising them for “intelligent music … that goes against the grain.” And something wwwabout those helmets all over French TV on Monday looked familiar. Henri Guaino, speechwriter for ex-President Nicolas Sarkozy, couldn’t resist drawing a parallel with the helmeted man pictured in a gossip magazine this month sneaking out of the presidential palace on a motorcycle to meet his actress paramour. The magazine says the man was President Francois Hollande, a claim neither he nor the actress has denied. Guaino quipped on BFM that the images provided “good publicity” for Daft Punk.
7 p.m. on FOX, NBC, PBS, ABC, CNBC CNN CSPAN FNC CBS State of the Union 2014 It’s been an eventful — and contentious — year for President Barack Obama and Congress, so the president will have plenty of material for this year’s State of the Union address to the Senate, the House and the American people. As for where to watch it, you have plenty of choices, so feel free to go with the network whose after-speech commentators you prefer. 7 p.m. on CBS NCIS Parsons (Colin Hanks) gains a new perspective on Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and the team after an explosion at a black-tie affair in the nation’s capital. DiNozzo and McGee (Michael Weatherly, Sean
Murray) take the risky step of investigating the case as civilians in “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.” Pauley Perrette and David McCallum also star. 7 p.m. on The CW The Originals After making a grisly discovery in the Cauldron, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) asks Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) for help, but he refuses. Rebekah (Claire Holt) discovers the remnants of a sacrifice and realizes it’s the work of a warlock from their past.

Leah Pipes also stars in the new episode “Dance Back From the Grave.” 8 p.m. on The CW Supernatural Dean and Sam (Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki) go to see Garth (DJ Qualls) after getting word that he’s in the hospital. It isn’t a happy reunion, however, as Dean, still feeling guilty about Kevin, angrily confronts Garth about disappearing and demands to know where he’s been — which only causes him to flee again in the new episode “Sharp Teeth.” 8 p.m. TBS Cougar Town Andy (Ian Gomez) urges Ellie (Christa Miller) to break out her alter ego, Charming Ellie, for the town’s Buccaneer Week, and Jules (Courteney Cox) is delighted with her friend’s new persona. Laurie (Busy Philipps) starts baking risque cakes in an effort to get more business in the new episode “The Trip to Pirate’s Cove.” Josh Hopkins also stars.

Birth control secret isn’t fair to spouse Dear Annie: I’m 46 years old, college educated, with no children. I recently celebrated my 20th wedding anniversary. It’s not what I would call a good marriage. My husband occasionally has fits of anger and has been verbally abusive. More than eight years ago, I had a miscarriage. My husband wanted to keep trying. He repeatedly has said that he can’t imagine a life without children. I told him that having children is not going to happen, and that if he wants a divorce over this, I won’t fight him. He is welcome to find someone else to have children with. What I did not tell him is that soon after the miscarriage, I started taking birth control pills and continue to do so. I feel guilty that I might have misled him in that he may think there is a chance for children, although I would hope that at my age he would be past that. My question is: Should I tell him about the birth control? I’m not sure what it would accomplish. I’m afraid of his reaction to finding out, and divorce terrifies me. — Torn Between What is Right and What is Safe Dear Torn: Regardless of what you may have told your husband eight years ago, if you allowed him to have the impression that you were willing to get pregnant again, then obviously, you have been dishonest. This was grossly unfair to him. But you cannot undo the past, and with your husband’s anger issues, we can understand why there seems no point in telling him now. But a marriage that isn’t good to begin with is not likely to get better without professional assistance. Decide whether divorce terrifies you so much that you are willing to live like this for another 40 years. Dear Annie: My husband’s sister chooses not to take turns hosting family get-togethers. She has a beautiful home, but claims she does not have any “social living space.” She
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH You’ll head in the right direction regarding a decision you’ve made. A loved one might react in an unexpected way that could stop you in your tracks. Tonight: Have a long-overdue conversation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Understand what is happening financially. Listen to others’ feedback, but avoid taking any risks for now. Tonight: Your treat. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH In face of a changing situation, your attitude remains steady. Being steadfast allows others to open up and share where they are coming from. Tonight: Beam in whatever you want. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HH Take news with a grain of salt. You might not be ready for a big shock, but in some way, you could be responsible for that reaction. Tonight: Early to bed. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Zero in on what you want and why you want it. A question could provoke an overreaction. No risk-taking, please. Tonight: Meet up with friends.

lives next door to her parents, so either they host, or we do it at our home. Her parents even host her children’s birthday parties. She just gets to show up. There is a lot of time, energy, planning, preparation and cost associated with having everyone over, and I feel she should reciprocate. However, my husband and in-laws do not see this as a problem. Am I asking too much? — Olympia, Wash. Dear Olympia: You are right that your sister-in-law should reciprocate, but it doesn’t matter. She isn’t going to do it. Your choice is simply which get-togethers you host and which belong to your in-laws. If you remove your sister-in-law from the hosting equation, you will be less resentful. You can cut back on the number of times you do this or ask your sisterin-law to reciprocate by cooking a dish or bringing the appetizers, but you cannot force her to open her home. Dear Annie: I want to thank “Still Suffering” for the gut-wrenching letter she wrote about being abused by her uncle. Any of us who have lived for years with the feelings of guilt and shame caused by being molested by a relative could have written that letter. When I was 10, I was molested by my older brother for several years. I am now in my 70s and have never fully recovered from the damage it caused. For years, I kept my filthy little secret. Last year, my brother died, and I did not go to his memorial service. Since then, I have told several family members. None of them was surprised, and all were supportive of me. Although I am overwhelmed with the love and support, I will take this scar to my grave. I hope that others who are victims of molesters will seek help and speak up early and not wait for the pervert to be out of their lives forever. — Feeling Better Now
