APD protest turns into ‘mayhem’ One officer injured as hundreds clash with police in demonstration over recent shootings By Russell Contreras The Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE — The Albuquerque mayor said late Sunday that a protest over recent police shootings

has turned from peaceful into “mayhem,” as officers in riot gear clashed with protesters who blocked traffic, tried to get on freeways and shouted anti-police slogans. Richard Berry said one officer was injured, rocks were thrown, and at one point, protesters trapped police in a vehicle and tried to break the windows, the Albuquerque Journal reported. An Associated Press reporter saw gas canisters being thrown and

Albuquerque police and Bernalillo County sheriff’s deputies charging at the crowds late Sunday. Berry didn’t know of any arrests, and multiple messages left for the police department weren’t immediately returned. Video by KRQE-TV shows people being led away in ziptie restraints, but it’s unclear if those people were arrested or if any protesters were injured. “We respected their rights to protest, obviously,” Berry said, “but

Ortiz Middle School secretary Kimberly Rael said she’s often heard school personnel and administrators say, “Without the secretaries, we just couldn’t make it.” Secretaries, she said, form “the core of the school. We have the keys to the building, help coordinate transportation, buzz people in as security, and if the nurse is out and it’s bloody, we have to take care of it.” She flashed her W-2 form for 2013. She made less than $20,000. When she started in her job 11 years ago, she said, she made about $17,000 a year. Fortunately, her domestic partner, who works as a police officer, makes a good salary plus benefits. Santa Fe Public Schools continues to seek money for raises for its roughly 1,800 employees, including secretaries, beyond the 3 percent average increase for state employees approved by both the Legislature and Gov. Susana Martinez this year. The school board discussed the issue during a study session last Monday evening, laying out a number of options. Those possibilities include tapping into an increase in education funding statewide — almost 5 percent more for Santa Fe Public Schools this coming year — and a one-time state allocation of $7.2 million designed to reward effective teachers and principals.

Water woes continue under faulty meter-reader system 3 percent of city’s customers have malfunctioning Firefly devices that can cause bills to skyrocket By Anne Constable The New Mexican

Retired city police Officer Jeff Dieringer and his wife got a bit of a shock in January when the city’s Water Division sent them a bill for $4,454. The family’s water bill was normally about $100 in the winter, Dieringer said. And even in the summer, the bill was less than $200. They have no grass at their home between Sam’s Club and the rodeo grounds, only “a few potted plants,” Dieringer said. Moreover, they’ve always paid their bill on time. Dierginger checked for leaks and found none before calling the city. He learned that he is among about 3 percent of the city’s water customers who have a malfunctioning Firefly. Fireflies are the electronic devices the city uses to remotely read customers’ water meters. They have

Grinding work pace for prison officers poses risks

H Milan Simonich

Ringside Seat


ard labor is still part of prison life, just not the way we remember it from The Shawshank Redemption. Officers at the state prison in Los Lunas say they routinely work 72 hours a week because staffing levels are dangerously low. That is a staggering load — four 16-hour workdays in succession and then an eight-hour shift on the fifth and last day of the workweek. Overtime is not just available for the taking. It is mandatory. Officers say they are reprimanded by prison administrators if they refuse extra

New district boundaries boost party’s chances of winning more seats WASHINGTON — Even if Democrats recruit great candidates, raise gobs of money and run smart campaigns, they face an uphill fight to retake control of the House in this year’s congressional elections, regardless of the political climate in November. The reason? Republican strategists spent years developing a plan to take advantage of the 2010 census, first by winning key state Legislatures and then redrawing House districts to tilt the playing field in their favor. In states like Ohio, Michigan and North Carolina, Republicans were able to shape congressional maps to pack as many Democratic voters as possible into the fewest House districts. The process, called gerrymandering, left fertile ground elsewhere in each state to spread Republican voters among more districts, increasing the GOP’s chances of winning more seats. Geography helped, too, in some states. Democratic voters are more likely to live in densely populated urban areas, making it easier to pack them into fewer districts. The first payoff came in 2012, when Republicans kept control of the House despite Democratic support that swept President Barack Obama to a second term. The next payoff is likely to come this fall. Gerrymandering has a long history in the United States, pursued enthusiastically by both Democrats and Republicans. But the GOP’s success at it this decade has been historic: In 2012, Republicans achieved a 33-seat majority in the House, even though GOP candidates as a group got 1.4 million fewer votes than their Demo-

what it appears we have at this time is individuals who weren’t connected necessarily with the original protest. They’ve taken it far beyond a normal protest.” Protesters took to the streets in the early afternoon and stayed out late Sunday after authorities declared an unlawful assembly. People are angry over Albuquerque police’s involvement in 37 shootings, 23 of them fatal since 2010. Critics say that’s far too

shifts. Their contract allows for them to be assigned up to four double shifts every week. Most officers make $13 to $16 an hour, so they are not getting rich, even with 32 hours of overtime a week. One calculated that, after taxes, he took home $48,000 last year. Still, a fatter paycheck is a welcome reward for any employee. The problem with so much overtime for prison officers is that the grind of too many shifts and too little rest could lead to a fatal mistake. Los Lunas is home to about

1,200 prisoners. They range from trusties allowed on roadside work details to felons in the supermaximum unit. While in the fog of fatigue, officers must secure murderers, robbers and even mentally ill inmates. One officer said he averages two and a half to four hours sleep each day before driving back to the prison for yet another 16-hour shift. Like 19th-century steelworkers, these prison employees say they work as hard as draft animals and are expected to be equally mute. Officers at the Los Lunas prison,

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Global warming is driving humanity toward a whole new level of many risks, a United Nations scientific panel reports, warning that the wild climate ride has only just begun. “Nobody on this planet is going to be untouched by the impacts of climate change,” Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change chairman Rajendra Pachauri said in a Monday news conference. Twenty-first century disasters such as killer heat waves in Europe, wildfires in the United States, droughts in Australia and deadly flooding in Mozambique, Thailand and Pakistan highlight how vulnerable humanity is to extreme weather, says a massive new report from a Nobel Prize-winning group of scientists released early Monday. The dangers are going to worsen as the climate changes even more, the report’s authors said.

Congress: GM twice failed to fix defect that led to recall DETROIT — General Motors discussed two separate fixes for an ignition switch defect in 2005 but canceled both of them without taking action, according to a memo released Sunday by the House subcommittee investigating GM’s handling of the defect and a subsequent recall. GM last month recalled 2.6 million small cars because their ignition switches can move from the “run” to the “accessory” or “off” position, which causes the car to stall and disables the air bags and power steering. GM says the recall is linked to 13 deaths. The recall includes the Chevrolet Cobalt, Chevrolet HHR, Pontiac G5, Pontiac Solstice, Saturn Ion and Saturn Sky from the 2003-11 model years. Congress is investigating why GM didn’t recall the cars sooner, because it first found problems with the ignition switches in 2001. It’s also questioning federal regulators from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, who didn’t investigate the cars despite evidence of a problem.

South Korea fires at North Korean waters after drills SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea has fired artillery shells into North Korean waters in response to North Korean shells from a live-fire drill that fell in waters south of the rivals’ disputed western sea boundary. An official with South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff says that no North Korean shells hit any land or military installations Monday. He says that South responded with artillery fire. He gave no details and spoke on condition of anonymity because of office rules. The exchange of fire follows Pyongyang’s earlier, unusual announcement that it would conduct the drills, a move seen as an expression of Pyongyang’s frustration at making little progress in its recent push to win outside aid.

Washington authorities: Mudslide death toll rises to 21 DARRINGTON, Wash. — Many of the dogs essential in the search for victims of the deadly mudslide that buried a mountainside community will take a two-day break, rescue crews said Sunday, as the official death toll rose and more bodies were recovered. The dogs can lose their sensing ability if overworked in the cold and rain. “The conditions on the slide field are difficult, so this is just a time to take care of the dogs,” said Kris Rietmann, a spokeswoman for the team working on the eastern portion of the slide, which hit March 22 about 55 miles northeast of Seattle and is one of the deadliest in U.S. history. Dogs from the Federal Emergency Management Agency that arrived more recently will continue working. On Sunday evening, the number of people who have been confirmed dead increased from 18 to 21, said Jason Biermann, program manager at the Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management.


AURORA, Colo. — As the weather warms, Lizeth Chacon is anticipating a new season of registering Latino voters — yet dreading experiences like one late last year, when she came upon a skate park full of older teenagers. “I thought, ‘The perfect age! They’re turning 18,’ ” said Chacon, just 26 herself, born in Mexico and now the lead organizer at Rights for All People, a local immigrant organizing group. But among the roughly 50 people she approached in this increasingly diverse city east of Denver, “not a single person” was interested in her pitch, including those old enough to vote: “They were like, ‘Why? Why would I bother to vote?’ ” Across the country, immigrantrights advocates report mounting disillusionment with both parties among Latinos, enough to threaten recent gains in voting participation that have reshaped politics to Democrats’ advantage. High hopes — kindled by President Barack Obama’s elections and stoked in June by Senate passage of the most significant overhaul of immigration law in a generation — have been all but dashed. Latinos mainly blame Republicans, who control the House and have buried the Senate bill, but they also have soured on Obama. Democrats are worried. While the growing Latino electorate is expected to give Democrats an edge for years unless Republicans shed an anti-immigrant image, Latinos are bit players in this midterm election year. Their turnout typically drops in midterm year. This fall, with many Latinos caught between hostility toward Republicans and disappointment with Obama, participation could dip further. Obama wants to reconcile with Latinos, a group that gave him 71 percent of its votes in 2012. He recently met with several Hispanic lawmakers and days later with 17 leaders of immigration groups, but the meetings only underscored each side’s frustration with the other. The exchanges reflected Obama’s bind: If he suspends more deportations, he could perhaps motivate more of them to vote. But he could lose what chance remains for new immigration law, since House Republicans have signaled they would cite such executive action as proof that he cannot be trusted to enforce any law.

GOP: Experts give Dems little chance to retake House Continued from Page A-1 cratic opponents. It was only the second time since World War II that the party receiving the most votes failed to win a majority of House seats, according to statistics compiled by the House Clerk. Democrats gained eight seats but were still a minority. “The fact that Republicans controlled redistricting [after 2010] meant that they were able to build up a wall, stopping a lot of the tide from running out,” said Justin Levitt, a law professor and redistricting expert at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. “They were able to shore up a lot of the districts that had been won by, in many cases, tea party freshmen or other Republican freshmen.” The Republicans’ advantage will fade as the decade wears on and the population changes. In the meantime, Democrats control the White House and the Senate, while Republicans control the House, giving the GOP powerful leverage to block Obama’s second-term agenda. How did Republicans gain their advantage? It all started with the party’s sweeping victories in 2010 and a plan called REDMAP. The 2010 election was a disaster for Democrats. Republicans picked up 63 seats to win control of the House. They also gained seats in the Senate, though Democrats kept a majority. Perhaps more important, Republicans won control of state Legislatures in crucial states, giving the party the edge that is still paying dividends. Every 10 years following the national census, states redraw the boundaries of House districts to account for population changes. Some states gain seats and others lose, so the overall total remains 435. In most states, the Legislature and the governor draw up the new districts, which is why political parties pay special attention to elections at the start of each decade. “I think Democrats made a terrible mistake. They did not put nearly enough attention or resources into legislative races at the state level,” said Matt Bennett, a former aide to President Bill Clinton. “A bunch of these Legislatures slipped by very narrow margins, and some of them flipped for the first time since Reconstruction in the South.” For Republicans, it was a combination of luck and planning. The political winds were in their favor, but they also had been plotting for years to take full advantage of redistricting. REDMAP, which stands for Redistricting Majority Project, called for targeting races

in states that were expected to gain or lose congressional seats. GOP strategists reasoned that redistricting could have a greater impact in these states because there would have to be more changes to district boundaries, said Chris Jankowski, former president of the Republican State Leadership Committee. Republicans spent more than $30 million through REDMAP to help elect legislative majorities in states such as Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, Jankowski said. “We’re not talking about 2-month-long broadcast buys on network TV that never stop, like you see in a U.S. Senate battle,” Jankowski said. “We’re talking about cable, radio, mail, ground game — very basic stuff.” Before the 2010 election, the GOP had majorities in 36 state legislative bodies. Afterward, the party controlled 56, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. In almost half the states, Republicans won control of the entire redistricting process. To help analyze voting patterns in congressional districts, The Associated Press divided the votes from the 2012 presidential election into all 435 House districts. Since Obama got the most votes, you might think he won the most congressional districts. But he didn’t. Nationally, Obama received nearly 5 million more votes than Republican Mitt Romney. But in some states, large numbers of Obama’s votes were packed into heavily Democratic congressional districts. As a result, Romney won in 17 more House districts than Obama. Independent experts give Democrats little chance to retake the House this year. Even beyond Republicans’ redistricting advantage, the party of the president usually loses seats in Congress during midterm elections. Rep. Steve Israel of New York, who is in charge of the House Democrats’ campaign operation, rejects arguments that Democrats can’t do it, regardless of the map. Jankowski, on the other hand, expects Republican candidates to continue enjoying the fruits of redistricting. Still, Jankowski notes that people move and populations change. As the decade wears on, the political benefits will diminish and another redistricting battle will loom. “It has a shelf life to it, and it’s usually not the full 10 years,” Jankowski said. “That’s the reason we have a census every 10 years.”

Pay: Boyd to apply for $7.2M from state Continued from Page A-1 nate Hanna Skandera said by phone Friday that the $7.2 million will provide a “payfor-performance” stipend. “The short of it is … we will reward effectiveness,” she said. “Every other profession that I’m aware of does that, and it is time we did it for our teachers.” She said application guidelines are still being drafted but likely will include adhesion to the state’s teacher-evaluation system. The Public Education Department expects to post a request for proposals within six weeks and then announce the grant recipients within another six weeks. Superintendent Joel Boyd said he intends to apply for all of that $7.2 million once the details are released. But that money won’t help employees like Rael, since it is aimed only at teachers and principals. Bernice García Baca, head of NEA-Santa Fe, said secretaries and educational aides remain among the “worst paid” in the schools. She said she hopes they will be included in the district’s plan to increase employee salaries. The district’s Competitive

Wage Committee, formed by Boyd in late 2012, reported last year that school secretaries “are at the top of the list for havJoel ing the least Boyd competitive salaries of any job classification in the district.” Their average salary is about $19,380 as compared to a state average of about $23,780. The committee estimates that giving those 47 employees a 6 percent raise would cost about $66,000, while a 10 percent raise would cost about $110,000. Special education paraprofessionals — or teachers’ aides — earn even less: $15,330 compared to a state average of about $17,135. Rael said it’s good to hear that efforts are being made to raise salaries. But then she looked at her paycheck — she clears about $350 a week — and drew a sigh. “If you were single, you couldn’t do this for a living,” she said. Contact Robert Nott at 986-3021 or

Protest: Cyberattack disrupts police site Continued from Page A-1 many for a department serving a city of about 555,000. The protesters repeatedly marched the two miles from downtown Albuquerque to The University of New Mexico, holding signs protesting recent police shootings and often snarling traffic. Motorists honked, and supporters took photos with smartphones. Activists called on various city officials to resign, yelling late Sunday for the police chief to resign. Justin Elder, 24, followed the protest as a passenger in a car and held a sign that read, “APD: Dressed To Kill.” “That’s what this police force is about,” Elder said. Albuquerque police in riot gear and New Mexico State Police followed the marchers, and protesters were seen shouting epithets at officers. At one point, a protester climbed a tall street sign on the city’s historic Route 66 and unsuccessfully attempted to bring it down. A different protester, Alexander Siderits, 23, said he was participating because he was “fed up” with how police treat citizens. “It has reached a boil-

ing point,” he said, “and people just can’t take it anymore.” The U.S. Justice Department has been investigating the department for more than a year, looking into complaints of civil rights violations and allegations of excessive use of force. The gathering came days after a YouTube video emerged threatening retaliation for a recent deadly police shooting.

The video, which bore the logo of the computer hacking collective Anonymous, warned of a cyberattack on city websites and called for the protest march. Albuquerque police said their site had been breached early Sunday afternoon, but it was visible late in the afternoon after being offline for hours. Earlier Sunday, police spokesman Simon Drobik confirmed the disruption was

due to a cyberattack and said investigators had not uncovered the source of the hack. In the shooting on March 16 that led to the YouTube posting Tuesday, a homeless man was killed in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains on the east side of Albuquerque. The FBI has opened an investigation into the shooting. Last week, Albuquerque police fatally shot a man at a public housing complex.

Water: City’s case vs. company pending Continued from Page A-1 the Dieringers. Then their device stopped working altogether. When a Water Division employee driving down the street got no reading from the Dieringers’ Firefly, the problem was discovered. The data logs showed the Firefly had been under-reading since about 2008. Some months, it showed no usage at all. When the city discovers malfunctioning Fireflies, it doesn’t replace them. It is suing the manufacturer, Texas-based Datamatic LTD, which has since gone bankrupt, for $6 million. Datamatic sold the city about 36,000 Firefly meter-reading devices, starting in 2006, and some 13,000 of them have malfunctioned. The city says the company hasn’t honored its warranty to correct the problem. The District Court case is pending, and the city is reparing a request for a proposals for a new company to replace the devices. In the meantime, customers like the Dieringers are still facing frustrations with their faulty Fireflies. Water Division Director Nick Schiavo was sympathetic, but he told Jeff Dieringer that since he had used the water he is being billed for, he still owes the money. “Is it really our fault?” Dieringer asked.

“We’ve been paying our bills.” He said he was still being billed for minimum service from the Water Division, like trash pickup and wastewater. But Schiavo said the Water Division couldn’t forgive Dieringer entirely and pass his water costs on to other customers. The division was willing to deal, however. The city first reduced Dieringer’s bill to $1,600 and then to $1,292.74 on Thursday, after Dieringer made a second visit to the Water Division offices. The city is allowing Dieringer to pay off the debt in 12 months. One of the adjustments the Water Division made to Dieringer’s bill was to assess water fees at the lowest residential rate. Currently, that is $6.06 per 1,000 gallons for the first 7,000 gallons. Between September and April, a residential customer using more than that is charged $21.72 for every 1,000 gallons in excess. (Between May and August, the $6.06 applies to the first 10,000 gallons to account for outdoor irrigation.) The system is designed to encourage water conservation. The city also accounted for a 2013 water rate increase and adjusted Dieringer’s bill further downward. Schiavo said he thinks the city’s response to the billing problem was “reasonable.”

As he continues to address problems with the old Fireflies, Schiavo said he is looking for a new meter-reading device that will read data on an hourly basis rather than several times a second, putting less demand on the battery. He also wants the information to be fed directly into a database at the Water Division and to be available to the city’s 37,000 water customers in almost real time. “The idea is for us not to drive around any more,” he said. Schiavo said there are several “reputable companies who are currently doing this type of work in other cities.” But before picking Datamatic’s replacement, he said, “Believe me, we’re going to be very rigorous.” The Water Division is hoping to demo some new devices in May with members of a selection committee, which includes a representative from state government who handles the state’s water bills. “I want to make sure they are happy with what we choose,” Schiavo said. By fall, Schiavo hopes to make a recommendation to the City Council on a new system — estimated to cost betwen $5 million and $9 million — that will include new meters as well as reception towers and will be phased in over a number of years.

Prison: Some officers fear retribution Continued from Page A-1 formally called the Central New Mexico Correctional Facility, say fear exists in the yard and cell blocks, and not necessarily because of the inmates. Speak up publicly, take on the role of whistleblower, and officers could face retribution. Gregg Marcantel, the straight-talking former Marine who runs New Mexico’s prison system, says the idea that his officers are afraid to openly talk about working conditions is a blow to him. “That hurts my feelings,” said Marcantel, as popular a boss as you will ever find. Up and down the ranks, prison employees describe Marcantel in glowing terms. Yet officers say he may not fully understand the severity of workplace fatigue, and they are wary of approaching many of his lieutenants with their complaints. Marcantel meets quarterly with union representatives and said he would immediately start seeking bottom-up ideas to ease staffing problems. He already has pushed through pay raises to help stop attrition and soon will have up to 140 more officers after a series of training academy classes graduate. State legislators also have helped his cause by appropriating more money for salaries. Gov. Susana Martinez hired Marcantel in late 2011, a time when one prison, the Western New Mexico Correctional Facility near Grants, had a 42 percent vacancy rate for officers. Vacancies at Western have dropped 13 percentage points since Marcantel’s arrival. It’s progress, but there are miles to go. “When I walked into this, I had one permanent warden and a lot of acting wardens. It’s been a challenge to build stability in the system,” Marcantel said. Los Lunas is perhaps the toughest prison to manage because of its diver-

gent inmate population and many missions. The 219 officers at Los Lunas average 17 hours a week in overtime, Marcantel said. The prison has a vacancy rate of about 21 percent, he said. But officers say the workload is much heavier on two of the three shifts, where overtime is constant. An officer at the Penitentiary of New Mexico near Santa Fe said staffing is not quite so difficult at his prison, where officers work 12-hour shifts. They are scheduled three days on and four off. Then, the following week, they work four days and are off three. Overtime also is plentiful and can be mandatory at the penitentiary, but the scheduling system makes shifts less intense than at the Los Lunas prison. Money, or the lack of it, has a lot to do with the way New Mexico staffs its prisons. Yet, because of the state’s history of prison violence, pay generally is not what officers talk about. Even those too young to remember the riot in 1980 at the Penitentiary of New Mexico know what can happen at an understaffed prison. Thirty-three inmates died at the hands of fellow prisoners when the penitentiary exploded in violence that was not contained for 36 hours. Prison workers say safety and security ought to be first on everybody’s mind. Officers at Los Lunas maintain this is not true. They say their prison almost never is locked down, even when staffing is at its lowest. In the officers’ view, family visits for inmates are a privilege, not a right, but they continue regardless of how far staffing levels fall. It’s rare that the gritty details of union contracts come to the public’s attention. That changed recently when Martinez said the state should stop collecting

employee union dues through payroll deductions. She solicited campaign donations to fight what she called “union bosses” who might use the payroll deductions to try to defeat her in this year’s gubernatorial election. The unions responded by saying that dues cannot be used to fund political activities. More important, employees in prisons said that staffing levels are a real problem, the state handling union payroll deductions an imaginary one. Patrick Gutierrez, president of the statewide American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union, is a rare on-the-record critic of the corrections system. “We’ve had officers roll over their vehicles on the way home after working double shifts. When you use up every last bit of energy and exhaust your adrenaline to remain alert on post, the commute home itself is hazardous,” he said. In some ways, Gutierrez said, inmates have an easier life than those who guard them. “Prisoners are quickly afforded mental health service when they need it. Officers, on the other hand, are given a 1-800 number and have limited opportunities to have their incredible stress levels professionally addressed,” Gutierrez said. Officers say history should have taught all of New Mexico that prisons can be a powder keg. They know Marcantel is listening but wonder if anybody else in power is paying attention.

EL NUEVO MEXICANO Ataques contra los mensajeros I

ncluso antes de que se publicara el libro de Amy Chua y Jed Rubenfeld titulado The Triple Package: How Three Unlikely Traits Explain the Rise and Fall of Cultural Groups in America (Paquete triple: Cómo tres rasgos insólitos explican el ascenso y la caída de grupos culturales en Estados Unidos), ya se lo estaba denunciando como sociológicamente superficial y lleno de puntos ciegos históricos. Chua, que ganó notoriedad como la “Madre Tigresa,” fue duramente criticada por “auténtica racista y defensora de la eugenesia.” La ironía es deliciosa: Una ultra-exitosa abogada asiático-americana convertida en escritora escribe sobre la forma en que algunos grupos marginados acceden a la prosperidad Esther y todo lo que obtiene son Cepeda feroces ataques de gente Comentario indignada, porque alguien destacara los logros de ciertos grupos. Hubo muchas críticas apasionadas, pero la nota de Jie-Song Zhang: Madre-tigresa vs. Dragón de Brooklyn: Por este medio desafío a Amy Chua a un duelo Kung Fu, en The Huffington Post, donde acusa a Chua de “poner en peligro el futuro de los Estados Unidos”, fue una de las más estridentes. He aquí un pasaje: “Podríamos boxear con un adversario imaginario en medio de la cafetería de Stuyvesant High School, en medio de niños chinos que dieran el SAT y se sacaran las notas máximas en la sección de Matemática. Podríamos actuar de manera verdadera y realmente china. “Me refiero al enfrentamiento más chino de Mahjong Fukien que alguna vez haya existido.” El alboroto que ha causado este libro raya en la locura. ¿Y por qué? Por un delgado volumen que, básicamente, dice que si uno tiene empuje, trabaja duro y tiene un buen concepto de sí mismo — pero no demasiado bueno, a nadie le gusta un fanfarrón — puede tener éxito en la vida. Todo eso solía ser de sentido común. Y lo más increíble es que si uno se molesta en leer el libro, verá que no trata en absoluto de determinar por qué algunos grupos son mejores que otros, sino que es un manual para tener éxito en Estados Unidos. El paquete triple que describen Chua y Rubenfeld se basa en la premisa de que vivimos en un mundo en que “a ciertos individuos y grupos les va notablemente mejor que a otros, en términos de riqueza, posición y otras medidas convencionales de éxito.” Esa afirmación repele a los críticos del libro, pero es un hecho. Los tres factores son un complejo de superioridad — la creencia profundamente internalizada de la singularidad, excepcionalidad y superioridad de uno, basada en un relato del esplendor de la historia y civilización del propio pueblo; inseguridad — el sentimiento o inquietud de que lo que uno ha hecho o tiene no es suficiente; y el control de los impulsos — la capacidad de no darse por vencido cuando se enfrentan reveses. Personalmente, la mejor parte del libro me pareció la explicación de por qué algunos grupos no alcanzan el éxito. “La ausencia del Paquete Triple no fue la causa original de su pobreza,” sostienen los autores. “En casi todos los casos, los grupos de bajos ingresos persistentes de Estados Unidos se volvieron pobres debido a una sistemática explotación, discriminación, y denegación de oportunidades, y por factores institucionales y macroeconómicos que no tienen nada que ver con su cultura.” Al describir por qué la combinación de factores del paquete triple no funciona con algunos grupos de bajos ingresos, los autores describen una variación de la Prueba de la Golosina para medir el auto-control. En ella, se les promete a los sujetos de la prueba una doble porción de golosinas si retrasan la gratificación. Pero para algunos de ellos la que hace la promesa es una persona que ha demostrado no ser fiable; mientras que a los otros, una persona que cumplió con su palabra en una instancia previa. Los del primer grupo no retrasaron la gratificación. “Si la gente no se fía del sistema, si cree que la sociedad miente cuando le dice que la disciplina y el trabajo duro serán recompensados — si piensa que los individuos como ellos nunca triunfarán— no tiene incentivos para controlar los impulsos, sacrificar satisfacciones presentes con la esperanza de ventajas futuras. Esto ocurre en los barrios urbanos deprimidos de Estados Unidos y en la zona rural de los Apalaches,” expresan los autores. Ése es el gran mensaje del libro — demasiado importante para que se pierda entre tontas discusiones sobre el imperialismo o la superioridad racial. Si queremos una nación de individuos dispuestos a trabajar duro y sacrificarse a fin de alcanzar el Sueño Americano, más vale que nos aprontemos a cumplir esa promesa constantemente.

La lucha por reforma Por Milan Simonich The New Mexican


uenta la leyenda que la organización para inmigrantes comenzó hace 20 años en la cocina de María Cristina López. López dice que la historia es casi cierta, aunque añade que fueron muchas la voces que se unieron al grupo para luchar por gente ordinaria que, en muchos de los casos, habían sido bien recibidos por el estado para encontrarse después con una ola política levantándose contra ellos. La historia norteamericana se está llena de periodos cuando los inmigrantes eran asediados y en 1994 fue uno de esos casos. California, el estado más poblado, fue el principal campo de batalla. Los votantes en California aprobaron la Propuesta 187 para prohibir que gente ilegal en el país asistiera a las escuelas públicas o recibiera servicios médicos públicos de manera gratuita. López dice que el mismo sentimiento apoyando la propuesta Salvando a Nuestro Estado en California, se extendió en todo el Oeste del país. El resentimiento se despertó en Nuevo México. “Había una ola anti-inmigrante con preguntas sobre si se debería permitir a niños inmigrantes asistir a la escuela y con retórica desagradable,” comentó hace unos días. Hasta el mundo con sus fronteras no necesariamente define quien pertenece o quien no. Fue así el caso de Nuevo México. En 1986, el Gdor. Toney Anaya declaró a Nuevo México en estado de santuario para aquellos que deseaban escapar de las guerras civiles en Centroamérica. Niños nacidos en el extranjero traídos a Nuevo México bajo asilo político recibieron años después la reacción negativa de la Propuesta 187. Con las emociones al rojo vivo, la reunión en la cocina de López llevó a la organización para los derechos de inmigrantes. Fue nombrada Somos Un Pueblo Unido. Quizá fue lógico para López estar al pendiente de los inmigrantes. Nacida en Ciudad Juárez, México en 1944, se mudó a Nuevo México para asistir a la universidad. López dice que vio y aún ve, que los inmigrantes eran cruciales para la economía del estado, con frecuencia realizando trabajos difíciles y demandantes que los norteamericanos no desearían. Debido a que los temas de edu-

cación, empleo y asuntos públicos estaban en el corazón del debate sobre inmigrantes, el grupo de López entró en la arena pública de la legislatura de Nuevo México denunciando la Propuesta 187. La propuesta fue aprobada en las urnas en California para después ser detenida en la corte federal por ser anticonstitucional. Las políticas de inmigración tradicionalmente estaban a cargo del gobierno federal y la decisión de la corte llevaba la intención de frenar la serie de leyes sobre inmigración que podrían surgir en las ciudades y estados. La lucha contra la Propuesta 187 fue sólo el comienzo para el grupo de López. En 1999, Somos Un Pueblo Unido presionó con éxito al Concejo Municipal de Santa Fe para aprobar la resolución que prohibía el uso de recursos municipales para hacer cumplir las leyes de inmigración. Esto incluía oficiales de policía haciendo sus rondas. Para 2003, el liderazgo de la organización presionaba discretamente en el Capitolio del Estado.

Fue a su vez el mismo año en que el Gdor. Bill Richardson, un demócrata, acogió la idea de permitir a las personas sin prueba de estatus migratorio obtener una licencia de manejar en Nuevo México. Él argumentaba que de esa manera las carreteras serían más seguras y la policía tendría una base de datos más completa sobre los conductores. “Si no hubiera sido por nosotros, él no lo hubiera hecho,” dice López sobre Richardson. “Pero sin él, nunca hubiera sido posible.” A la fecha, López permanece en el consejo de Somos Un Pueblo Unido. Ha crecido a 2,500 miembros en 10 condados, incluyendo en algunas de las regiones más conservadoras del estado. Algunos dicen que la organización lucha por los de abajo. López afirma que es cierto, pero que la causa principal es el pelear por aquellos que están tratando de hacer una vida en Nuevo México. Traducción de Patricia De Dios para The New Mexican.

na mañanita, Canutito rushed into the la cocina donde grampo y grama estaban having breakfast. Estaba todo out of breath. “¡Grampo! ¡Grama!” he called out todo excited, “¡Una de las borregas had twins anoche!” “So, one of the sheep had cuates last night, eh?” Grampo Caralampio remarked. “Está bien pero I don’t think que esa borrega has enough milk for both cuates. Larry Torres I think que we Growing up are going to Spanglish have to give leche to one of the twins con una botella. We are going to have to amamantarlo.” “Are there really baby bottles for feeding borreguitos, grampo?” Canutito asked. “Not really,” grampo answered, “pero lo que we do is to put una rubber nipple en una botella de 7-Up and feed the borreguito that way.” As Canutito watched, Grama Cuca heated some leche de vaca en un jumatito on top of the stove. When la leche was warm in the saucepan, she poured it into the 7-Up bottle and fixed the rubber teta over el opening. Entonces toda la familia went out into el corral to look at the new set of cuates. “¡Oh, mira qué cute-itos están!” Grama Cuca gushed when she saw the twin lambs. Then she called to them by saying “brrrrtbrrrrt” rolling her lengua against her teeth. Grampo Caralampio caught the smaller of the two borreguitos and held him in place between his knees. Entonces he forced a finger entre las jaws del borreguito trying to get it to open its mouth. He then put la tip de la nipple into the lamb’s boca and squirted some leche inside. Soon el borreguito was hooked, sucking en la homemade teta as the leche calentita filled his pancita. “El otro borreguito looks bien mamão,” Grama Cuca remarked, pointing to the lamb that looked well-fed, “pero if we don’t continue to feed a este otro borreguito he might become un penco.” “Grama, ¿qué es un penco?” Canutito asked, hearing una strange word. “Un penco,” grama began, “es un motherless animal. Sometimes la mamá del animalito will die giving birth or be killed por los coyotes or maybe she just no tiene suficiente leche to feed cuates or even triplets a veces. “So a ‘penco’ is a little orphaned animal?” Canutito asked. “Sí,” Grama Cuca affirmed. “Or,” Grampo Caralampio chimed in as he finished feeding al borreguito, “un penco can also be a man who fools around with your wife cuando you are not mirando. Entonces he runs away con ella and leaves you todo orphaned, or as we say in Spanish, ‘te penquearon.’ ” “That’s funny,” Canutito said inocentemente. Entonces he asked grampo, “Is it unusual for an animal to have a set of cuates en una noche?” “Not at all,” Grampo Caralampio remarked. “I remember una vez cuando I was young que in my dad’s flocks 60 borreguitos were born en una noche. We used to say que las borregas ‘sesentearon’ to say they gave birth to 60 lambs all at once.” “Wow!” Canutito exclaimed, “Eso es como doubling your flock en una noche. He watched as Grampo Caralampio released al borreguito back to its mother and then took la botella de 7-Up y la teta y las hizo rinse en el agua de la acequiecita. “There,” grampo said, “Amamantamos al borreguito; we have bottle-fed it.” The family walked back to the kitchen dónde Canutito drank his own glass de leche and considered himself bien-amamantão también.

‘Cybercreeped’ out Embarrassing gaffes become inevitable in a world obsessed with technology

By Lindsey Tanner

The Associated Press

By Henry Alford

The New York Times


ave you ever been unintentionally “cybercreepy”? I have. A few weeks ago, after stashing my bathing suit and towel in my locker at my gym, I reached for my cellphone to check my email. “You can’t have a cellphone in here!” an older gym-goer rebuked me. Thinking he feared I was about to conduct a lengthy phone call about how I like enough mustard on a sandwich such that the salami comes alive but not so much that it becomes a mustard sandwich, I explained to the man that I was only checking my email. “No, it’s not that,” he rightly explained to me. “There are naked people in here.” I apologized and skittered off. The more common iteration of unintentional tech-based creepiness, of course, is a kind of peekaboo that is thrust upon you. It starts with a colleague handing you her phone so that you can look at her vacation photos. You begin swiping through her sunshiny mementos — palm tree, cabana, palm tree, palm tree — when, suddenly, blammo: There’s your friend in her starkers. A large hole has now been rent in the time-space continuum; even your watch stops ticking. Or consider the ravages of autocorrect and autofill. Maggie Robbins, a psychotherapist in private practice in New York, said: “Last fall, by accident, I texted one of the people I work with — I dislike the terms ‘patient’ and ‘client’ — about a lunch plan I had that day with a friend. I sent something like, ‘Really looking forward to seeing you this aft!’” Robbins added: “I texted the person about an hour later to apologize for the gaffe. It was treated as humorous. But the potential for creep-out was very high, especially as many of my texts to friends are downright silly.” We bumble, we misrepresent. At a point in history when invasions of electronic privacy are mostly the product of corporations and governments, and when online privacy seems ever more likely to become a luxury good that we’ll have to pay for, it can be helpful to lay claim to our own culpability, too. “To quote Pogo, ‘We have met the enemy, and he is us,’ ” said Linda Ellerbee, the host and executive producer of Nick News With Linda Ellerbee. “We’ve always been able to make great fools of ourselves. It’s just the technology has gotten faster and more broad.” Ellerbee speaks from experience: In 1972, while working for The Associated Press in Dallas, she wrote in a personal letter to a friend some remarks that were critical of her employer, and then accidentally sent the letter out over the AP newswire. Ellerbee was fired. “It was hugely embarrassing. But I just had an opportunity most people didn’t have. Now everyone has the opportunity.”

The etiquette of these gaffes is usually fairly cut and dry: You goof up, and then you offer remonstrance. But the landscape becomes more complicated when the gaffes are fueled by a larger degree of intentionality. Colin Summers, an architect, said: “A few years ago my son Rudy and I decided to try the Veggie Grill in Santa Monica. I thought it would be grilled vegetables and was sorely disappointed; it is soy product masquerading as meat. While we were sitting poking at our food, I checked in with Facebook, which had a new feature that told you who was nearby. It said there was someone in Veggie Grill with us. Paula. I didn’t recognize her, but I figured she was one of my wife’s friends who’d migrated over to my Facebook page. I glanced around at the mostly empty restaurant and said, ‘Paula?’ A woman sitting alone with her book and food looked up. ‘Yes?’ Very confused. I didn’t know her at all. I glanced back down at my phone. Back up. ‘Uh, Facebook told me you were here. Just checking.’ ‘Oh. OK.’ Not even an ‘Enjoy your dinner’ or anything!” Yes, Summers comes off as slightly cheeky. But Paula seems downright chilly. Let’s look now at a recent tweet from Emily Bell, a professor at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, and the director of the Tow Center for Digital Journalism. It ran, “That thing where you show a colleague a locked Twitter account of a Mexican drug lord and they ‘accidentally’ send a follow request from you.” In a phone interview, Bell said she’d been reading about the arrest of the head of a drug cartel in Mexico and had sought out his Twitter account. “I couldn’t resist going through his followers list and seeing who he’s following.” Bell showed the account to a colleague at Columbia, who playfully sent a follower request from Bell’s account. Bell laughingly asked her colleague: “ ‘What’s going to happen to me? You have submitted a request to someone who is clearly engaged in violent acts. What happens when this drug lord gets this weird request from a middle-aged professor at Columbia? What’s he going to think? Something awful, I imagine.’ ” Bell summed up: “It was very Larry David. The whole

thing was very Larry David.” The dividing line between playful and aggressive behavior is even murkier in the case of a woman whom Thomas Thornburg, a professor at the University of North Carolina, met online. “I had a profile on a dating site last year,” he said. “As is the norm, I didn’t share my real name or any directly identifying info. I included a photo of myself, along with photos of flowers and architecture that I’ve taken and liked. A woman contacted me through the site’s mail system, telling me who I was and where I worked. She was proud of her sleuthing and wanted me to be as well. She had recognized a column on a building in one of my photos and knew the organization in that building. She went to the employee directory of the organization on its website and, looking for someone who matched my dating photo, found me. Voilà. She told me about it. She didn’t mean to be sinister. I was creeped out enough by the thoroughness of a complete stranger to take down that photo of columns. I meekly congratulated her on her detective work. We never met, however. Her sleuthing was a red flag.” In the end, is there any wisdom or advice to be extracted from those who’ve spent time in the cybercreepy trenches? Bell said: “The only way to make sure that everything is safe is don’t make a digital copy of it. And get a box Brownie.” Ellerbee added, “My only two pieces of advice are

1) Remember that almost no message or thought was ever lost for 30 seconds’ conscious thought first, and 2) Disable autocorrect now.” But might there be someone whose ability to creep others out is more thoroughgoing, and thus might offer even more perspective? For 33 years, the actress Cassandra Peterson has deployed fake blood, skeletons, plunging necklines, white pancake and corny wisecracks in her role as the horror movie hostess Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. Peterson suggested that those of us who are unintentionally cybercreepy might do this: “Basically act like it’s nothing out of the ordinary. When people get scared of me because I’m walking past them in a hotel lobby as Elvira, I’ll say, ‘Hey, where’s your Halloween costume?’ It puts them slightly on the defensive, but in an amusing way. Then we’ll all laugh and everyone gets comfortable. It puts them at ease.” Peterson also said it’s helpful to have stock lines that are selfdeprecating. “People always ask me, ‘What do your parents think of you dressing like that?’ Having been a showgirl in the past, I’ll say, ‘They’re just happy to see me wearing clothes.’ ” Too, it would probably help if we cultivated more tolerance toward the gaffe-makers. Recently a friend sent me a sheepish email saying that, in a previous email about possible dates for a gettogether, she’d omitted the word ‘maybe.’ I fired back: “All is understood! Dingo ate your maybe.”

CHICAGO — A smartphone app for recovering alcoholics that includes a panic button and sounds an alert when they get too close to taverns helped keep some on the wagon, researchers who developed the tool found. The sober app studied joins a host of others that serve as electronic shoulder angels, featuring a variety of options for trying to prevent alcoholics and drug addicts from relapsing. Adults released from in-patient alcoholism treatment centers who got free sober smartphones reported fewer drinking days and more overall abstinence than those who got the usual follow-up support. The results were based on patients’ self-reporting on whether they resumed drinking, a potential limitation. Still, addiction experts say the immediacy of smartphone-based help could make them a useful tool in fighting relapse. Mark Wiitala, 32, took part in the study and says the app helped save his life. He said the most helpful feature allowed him to connect to a network of peers who’d gone through the same recovery program. The app made them immediately accessible for an encouraging text or phone call when he needed an emotional boost. “It’s an absolutely amazing tool,” said Wiitala, of Middlesex County, Mass. He said he’s continued to use it even though the study ended. The study was published online Wednesday in JAMA Psychiatry. It involved 271 adults followed for a year after inpatient treatment for alcoholism at one of several U.S. centers in the Midwest and Northeast. They were randomly assigned to get a sober smartphone app for eight months plus usual follow-up treatment — typically referral to a self-help group — or usual followup alone. The app includes a feature asking periodic questions by text or voicemail about how patients are doing. If enough answers seem worrisome, the system automatically notifies a counselor who can then offer help. The panic button can be programmed to notify peers who are nearest to the patient when the button is pushed. It also offers links to relaxation techniques to calm the patient while waiting for help. “We’ve been told that makes a big difference,” said David Gustafson, the lead author and director of the Center for Health Enhancement Systems Studies at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. He’s among developers of the app, nicknamed A-CHESS after the center. Gustafson said it is being commercially developed and is not yet available. Differences in abstinence from drinking between the two groups didn’t show up until late in the study. At eight months, 78 percent of the smartphone users reported no drinking within the previous 30 days, versus 67 percent of the other patients. At 12 months, those numbers increased slightly in the smartphone group and decreased slightly in the others. Smartphone patients also had fewer “risky” drinking days per month than the others. The study average was almost 1½ days for the smartphone group versus almost three days for the others. Risky drinking was defined as having more than four drinks over two hours for men and more than three drinks for women. One drink was a 12-ounce bottle of beer, 5-ounce glass of wine, or 1.5-ounce shot of liquor. The results for smartphone users were comparable to what has been seen with standard follow-up counseling or anti-addiction medication, said Daniel Falk a scientist-administrator at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, which helped pay for the study. He noted that alcohol abuse affects about 18 million Americans and that only about 25 percent who get treatment are able to remain abstinent for at least a year afterward. Scientists are looking at new ways to try to improve those statistics.

Google caught in Apple, Samsung war By Brian X. Chen

The New York Times

SAN FRANCISCO — Officially, it’s Apple versus Samsung Electronics in another tech patent faceoff in a San Jose, Calif., courtroom this week. But there is one unnamed party in the case — Google. In a lawsuit, Apple is seeking about $2 billion in damages from Samsung for selling phones and tablets that Apple says violate five of its mobile software patents. Samsung, meanwhile, says Apple violated two of its patents.

Some features in Samsung devices that Apple objects to are part of Google’s Android operating system, by far the most popular mobile operating system worldwide, running on more than a billion devices made by many manufacturers. That means that if Apple wins, Google could have to make changes to critical Android features, and Samsung and other Android phone makers might have to modify the software on their phones. “Google’s been lurking in the background of all these cases because of the Android system,” said Mark P. McKenna, a professor who

teaches intellectual property law at Notre Dame. “Several people have described the initial battle between Samsung and Apple as really one between Apple and Google.” Representatives for Apple, Samsung and Google declined to comment. The current case, which begins Monday with jury selection, is the second major court battle over patents between Apple and Samsung, which rode the success of Android to become the biggest handset maker in the world. Samsung lost the first case in 2012, and it was ordered to pay $930 million in damages.

Study: Many preteens have high cholesterol By Marilynn Marchione The Associated Press

There’s fresh evidence that a lot of young people could be headed for heart trouble. A large study of preteens in Texas found that about one-third of them had borderline or high cholesterol when tested during routine physical exams. The results seem to support recent guidelines that call for every child to have a cholesterol test between 9 and 11 — the ages of the 13,000 youths in this study. Many doctors and adults have balked at screening all children

that young, but researchers say studies like this may convince them it’s worthwhile. “A concerning number of children” are at risk of heart problems later in life, and more needs to be done to prevent this at an earlier age, said Dr. Thomas Seery of Texas Children’s Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine. He led the study, which will be presented at an American College of Cardiology conference in Washington this weekend. Estimates are that by the fourth grade, 10 to 13 percent of U.S. children will have high cholesterol. Half of them will go on

to have it as adults, raising their risk for heart attacks, strokes and other problems. High cholesterol rarely causes symptoms in kids. Many genes and inherited conditions also cause high cholesterol but not obesity, so it can be missed, especially in youths who are slim or athletic. The new study involved children having routine physicals from January 2010 to July 2011 at the largest pediatric primary care network in the nation, more than 45 clinics in the Houston area. One-third were Hispanic, about one-third were white and 18 per-

cent were black. About one-third were obese. Unhealthy total cholesterol levels were found in 34 percent. LDL or “bad cholesterol” was borderline or too high in 46 percent, and HDL or “good” cholesterol was borderline or too low in 44 percent. Just over half had normal triglycerides, another type of fat in the blood. Boys were more likely than girls to have higher total cholesterol, LDL and triglycerides, Seery said. Hispanics were more likely to have higher cholesterol and triglycerides.

ith spring (mostly) here, you may be ready to get off cardio machines and head outside. Here are a few tips on starting up a running program and staying with it from Jennifer Van Allen of Runner’s World magazine, who has run 49 marathons and is the co-author of the new book Runner’s World Big Book of Running for Beginners. Do it your own way. There are some non-negotiables when you first hit the road: Start slow and finish strong, never run through pain, and invest in running shoes and replace them before they wear out. (It’s the cheapest and easiest way to get fit without getting hurt.) But the rest — and there is a lot — is open to individual interpretation. So don’t be distracted by people who try to convince you that you’re doing it wrong. Ignore anyone who tries to convince you that you must run a certain pace or number of miles to be a real runner. Don’t undo your roadwork at the dinner table. It’s easy to get into a cycle of entitlement eating, indulging in unhealthful treats and eating back the calories you burn running — and then some. Keep in mind that most people overestimate the number of calories they burn and low-ball the number they consume. For any run of an hour or less, it’s fine to run on empty. Anything longer, or if it’s been a long time since you’ve run, have a 100- to 200-calorie snack an hour before heading out. Make sure it’s high in carbs (your body’s favorite fuel) and low in fat and fiber (which can cause GI upset). Follow the 10-minute rule. The first 10 minutes of any run are going to feel tough. You’ll probably feel stiff, achy, tired and ticked off. That’s OK, and a natural part of transitioning from being sedentary to being in motion. If you keep pushing your body forward — even if you’re walking — your weariness will soon evolve into exhilaration. We promise. After 10 minutes, you can call it quits with the satisfaction of knowing that your mission is

accomplished. But more often than not, your muscles will feel warmed up, your heart rate will be elevated and you’ll start to feel energized, even excited to exercise. Learn the difference between good and bad pain. Running isn’t going to feel comfortable or easy. Not in the first few weeks or even months. There will be muscle aches that go with pushing your legs and lungs farther and faster than they’ve gone before. But any pain that persists or worsens as you run or after you’re done is something that deserves at least two days of rest and possibly a call to the doctor. Same goes for any pain that’s sharp, makes you change your gait to compensate (which can cause more injury) or is located on one side of the body but not the other. Take your run like medicine. The hour before a run is tougher than anything you’ll encounter out there. Before you go, a flood of excuses will threaten to get between you and the road. You will always have emails to answer, dishes to wash, laundry to do, phone calls to return. But if you don’t take care of your body, it won’t take care of you. Research has proved that regular exercise will help prevent diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease and cancer, among other conditions. It can help improve the quality of your life, help stave off depression, help you stay sharp as you age and even help prevent age-related declines such as falling.

Learn how to talk back to negative voices. At some point during a run of any distance you’ll start hearing these voices: I’m too slow. I’m too tired. I hate running. I can’t do this. I don’t want to do this. I should be working instead. I should be home instead. You can’t prevent these voices from haunting your run. But you can develop a strategy for vanquishing them. Make a list of reasons why you run. Fitting into your skinny jeans is perfectly acceptable. Add up your miles each week, so when you hit the wall at mile 2 of a planned 3-miler, you’ll know that final mile is nothing compared to all the miles you’ve already logged. When someone passes you, don’t take it personally; it’s not a referendum on how fit you are. It’s proof of what’s possible. Bart Yasso likes to say that what’s important is not “how far you go, but how far you’ve come.” Stop thinking about it as a run and think about it as outside time, which studies have proven is medicine itself. Have a bank of mantras ready that feel meaningful. One of my favorites is “let the road rise to meet you.” Go with the flow. The state of your work, family and social life will have a huge impact on how much time, emotion, energy and interest you can bring to running, and what you need from it. If you tie yourself to goals that no longer fit, burnout and bitterness are all but assured. Keep setting new goals that work well with your lifestyle and your state of mind.

Technology could help many avoid open-heart surgery Valves inserted using catheter rather than cracking ribs By Michelle Fay Cortez Bloomberg News

MINNEAPOLIS — New technology letting doctors insert man-made heart valves with a catheter instead of cracking open the chest is aiming to change the face of cardiac care for many aging baby boomers. The procedure, requiring just a 1-inch cut, can take as little as one week of recovery time while openheart surgery, which pierces the breastbone with a slice that can run the length of the torso, takes as long as eight weeks. It’s a difference, doctors say, that can make aortic valves made by Edwards Lifesciences Corp. and Medtronic Inc. — designed to use the new procedure — standard issue for heart patients. Medtronic wants to expand use of its valve based on data to be reported this weekend at the American College of Cardiology meeting in Washington. If the findings are positive, CoreValve may join Edwards’ Sapien valve in boosting the procedure’s popularity. The procedure now is “generally used for people that have contraindications to surgery,” said Robert Siegel, director of the Cardiac Noninvasive Laboratory at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. “But we keep pushing that envelope.” The Medtronic device is now cleared for patients who can’t undergo open-heart surgery. In the soonto-be presented study, Minneapolis-based Medtronic tested its valve in almost 800 patients who were highrisk but who could have undergone the traditional rib-cracking operation. If approved for that indication, the device may join Edwards’ Sapien in what may become a $2.5 billion market annually as other device makers present their similar products, said Glenn Novarro, an RBC Capital Markets analyst in New York. About 70,000 Americans undergo aortic valve operations yearly to relieve symptoms including chest pain and shortness of breath so severe it can limit everyday activities, according to the Society of Thoracic Surgeons. Doctors historically fixed the problem by opening the chest, cutting out the damaged valve and sewing in a replacement prosthesis. Though traditional rib-cracking surgery may be daunting, the risk of death from it has fallen over the past decade to less than 1 percent for those younger than 70, creating a high hurdle for companies developing valves inserted via a catheter. The Edwards valve was approved for use by all high-risk patients near the end of 2012. Both its valve and Medtronic’s are used in a process that’s considered minimally invasive, inserted mainly via the femoral artery through the groin area or through a small incision between the ribs. Patients studied in a trial of Edwards’ Sapien had a mortality rate of 24.3 percent compared to 26.8 percent for those having open-heart surgery. The Sapien patients also spent just eight days in the hospital compared with 12 for the rib- cracking operation. While Sapien costs about $30,000, compared to $6,000 for older valves inserted in the traditional manner, patients save by spending less time in the operating room and the hospital, company officials have said. In the Medtronic study, investors, regulators and doctors will be watching for side effects that may include a higher risk of stroke, an increased need for a pacemaker or high rates of leakage around the CoreValve itself. If the side effects are acceptable compared with open-heart surgery, the added convenience of the newer procedure may be a big selling point for anyone with damaged aortic valves, said Prediman K. Shah, a cardiologist at Cedars Sinai Heart Institute in Los Angeles, during a conference call before the cardiology meeting. “Cardiovascular surgeons should watch out,” said Shah, who is also the meeting’s co-chairman. “In the next few years, it’s very likely it will be a relatively rare patient who will have a surgical valve replacement.” The Medtronic study is one of three focused on the approach at the cardiology conference. Another compares CoreValve to Edwards’ next-generation Sapien XT, while a registry of 7,000 patients examines how those outside of clinical trials fare a year after treatment.

Traveling poet takes to Plaza By Robert Nott The New Mexican

Traveling new-era beat poet Seamas Navarro was on the Plaza Sunday, committing poetry and other crimes. “Excuse me, do you like poetry?” Navarro asks passersby. If the answer is yes, he offers to recite a poem. The choices are light, dark, real or artist’s choice. Most people these days choose light, he said. But if they pick artist’s choice, he generally goes with dark. It reflects his life, he suggested. Navarro, wearing a gray tweed jacket and a small hat best described as world-weary, also was selling handmade pamphlets of his work titled Poetry And Other Crimes, which features more than 20 poems, two prose pieces, and a short story about being on the run from his parole officer and living on the streets of New York City while addicted to crack. It retails for $5, cash or check only, one assumes, since he wasn’t carrying a credit-card machine with him. On a good day, he can make $100 or so in cash, he said. Navarro said he arrived in town around 10 p.m. Friday with two bags — one carrying his poetry pamphlets and one carrying his overnight gear,

which includes provisions for “camping out somewhere.” He began pitching the poetry to the bar crowd that night. He said he’s been living this way, bumming rides or riding buses from town to town across the country, for a decade or so. The best part, he said, “is being able to bring art to people, to move when I want, to do what I want, to travel when I want, to sleep when I want.” But, he cautioned, “It is a job. I work more hours than the CEO of a corporate company.” And, he noted, “I’m not rolling

around in a Ferrari, bro.” Before the traveling years, Navarro said, there were troubles, including a dad who ran off when he was a baby, followed by experiences with drugs, theft and assault with a deadly weapon. Prison time in California followed. He said he fulfilled the terms of his last parole in the late 1990s, although a 2008 Aspen Times piece notes that an Anthony Cabrera, who gave an alias of Seamas Navarro, was arrested for drunken and disorderly conduct.

Today, the poet says his life is an open book and that people say a lot of good and bad things about him online — some true, some not. One can digitally trace the past few years of his life, reading blog posts of people who have run into him, including a Santa Fe visitor in September 2013, who credits Navarro with saving him from a potential run-in with some tough individuals in an arroyo. Navarro also can be found in YouTube videos shot in Central Park and Big Sur, talking about his troubled past and reciting his work. Navarro said he’s gotten into at least six fist fights with people who didn’t like him asking if they want to hear poetry. “But not in Santa Fe,” he quickly added. It’s one of his favorite places to visit, he said, because it’s artist friendly and people like him aren’t seen as being too weird. He likes to come through about once a year. He planned to be out of town by dawn Monday, on his way to Colorado and then, who knows. He doesn’t have a car. Nor has he signed up for health insurance under President Barack Obama’s federal law. “I gotta figure that out,” he said. Contact Robert Nott at 986-3021 or

Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., said the people of Crimea have freely chosen to leave Ukraine and join Russia after Ukraine’s democratically elected president was removed from power, so any U.S. intervention to counter Crimea’s annexation was unwarranted.

Senate votes

Senate vote 2 Federal district judge for Pennsylvania (Smith): The Senate confirmed the nomination of Edward G. Smith to serve as a U.S. District Judge for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. A supporter, Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., cited Smith’s 27 years of experience as a captain in the Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps, in which capacity he has won numerous medals, 13 years serving as a judge on the Northampton County Court of Common Pleas, and 11 years of experience at the DeRaymond & Smith law firm. Casey praised Smith’s integrity and ability, and said he had the proper “judicial temperament, the approach to litigants, to treat them with fairness and to arrive at a measure of justice.” The vote, on March 26, was 69 yeas to 31 nays. Nays: Heinrich, Udall

Senate vote 3 Loan guarantees for Ukraine: The Senate passed a substitute amendment sponsored by Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., to the Support for the Sovereignty, Integrity, Democracy, and Economic Stability of Ukraine Act (H.R. 4152). The substitute amendment would provide $1 billion of loan guarantees for Ukraine’s new government, fund democracy, governance and civil society programs in the country, and impose sanctions and asset freezes against Russian officials. Menendez said the amendment would “send a very clear message to world actors” that the U.S. does not tolerate aggression against neighboring countries and the forced annexation of territory, as Russia has done in Crimea. The vote, on March 27, was 98 yeas to 2 nays. Yeas: Heinrich, Udall

FBI seeks suspect in S.F. bank robbery FBI officials are seeking a suspect in a Saturday morning armed robbery of the U.S. Bank branch at 600 San Mateo Road. According to a news release, the man, described as being between 20 and 35 years old, walked into the bank branch shortly after it opened Saturday, flashed what appeared to be a black handgun, and demanded money. The suspect left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash. Images taken from surveillance video of the robbery show a man dressed in a baggy,

light-gray hoodie with a red bandanna covering his face. According to an FBI media alert, the man weighs approximately 140 to 180 pounds, and has black or brown oily hair and a tan complexion. He was wearing blue jeans or gray sweatpants, black sneakers and dark gloves. Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call the FBI at 889-1300. The FBI may offer a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the suspect’s arrest and conviction. The New Mexican

Smoking in casinos bad for patrons


s someone who enjoys going to the area casinos from time to time, I find it disconcerting that smoking is still allowed. I feel for the employees who inhale the secondhand smoke that they must endure daily. Each time I enter, I am overwhelmed by the smoke, and when I leave it hangs on my clothes and hair. My eyes burn and, as we all know, this practice goes against absolutely everything we know about the effects of both first- and secondhand smoke. When this practice was discontinued indoors, and at bars and restaurants, many were afraid that the patronage to said establishments would diminish. It did not. I think it is time to revisit this problem.

Shop smart I totally agree with the idea of shopping smart, not locally. Who is going to shop in Albuquerque because of the ban on plastic bags? I also have been shopping in Albuquerque. Paper bags are clumsy and take up a lot of room. I miss the handles on plastic bags. I also agree with David Martinez (Letters to the editor, “Missing bags,” March 25) about the stupidity of the City Council on agreeing on this bag ban. Leave it to Santa Fe for taking a step back when it should go forward.

few weeks ago, during the campaign for mayor, I was going to cast my vote for Javier Gonzales until your articles about the donations for Gonzales that came from parties outside of New Mexico. To me this smacked of “in-the-bagism.” To begin his term as mayor and make a “closed-door” deal is outrageous. It will be interesting to see who will be the next sweet-deal member of city government. Also, watch out for contracts that are given to out-of-state companies. Richard Ohrbom

The past 100 years


From The Santa Fe New Mexican: March 31, 1914: Five masked men entered the city jail at the point of pistols shortly after 1 o’clock this morning and removed Adolfo Padilla, took him out in the street and, with the aid of 15 or 20 other men, slashed his throat and hands in almost the identical manner in which Padilla is alleged to have taken the life of his beautiful 18-year-old wife, Refugia Blea de Padilla, at her mother’s home on College Street. None of the mob has been identified or captured. Padilla died 10 hours later. March 31, 1964: Anchorage, Alaska — The earthquake and sea waves which battered the major centers of south central Alaska Friday night dealt a crushing blow to the economy of this young state. The private economy and the state government are reeling. The loss of individual and corporate income taxes, business license taxes and raw fish taxes are a major setback to the government. The governor estimated damage at more than $350 million in actual property alone. March 31, 1989: Larragoite Elementary School, which distinguished itself last year as the first school in the nation to select its own principal, is losing that principal in June. The rift that contributed to Gilbert Archuleta’s decision last month to resign at the end of the school year has splintered Larragoite’s parents and teachers into factions, angry and disturbed at one another. Though a committee composed of teachers and parents chose Archuleta, they were not ready for the changes he brought with him. And they found his “extensive vocabulary” intimidating.

hat’s worse than a cramped economy seat with limited leg room and a seat reclined onto your dinner tray? Airplane manufacturer Airbus has come up with an answer: Jam an 11th seat into economy-class rows of the A380, the world’s largest passenger jet, for a 3-5-3 seat configuration. According to Flightglobal, an aviation website, a mock-up of this new 11-abreast seat configuration will be shown at an aircraft interiors trade show in April. The website reports that an aircraft leasing company is eager to get it into the hands of airlines worldwide. Being boxed in a middle seat by four people is seemingly not the future air travelers were promised when the A380 was announced in 2000. Back then, the giant plane — according to Airbus it has enough room to seat about 525 passengers in a “comfortable three-class configuration,” though actual configurations vary — was expected to usher in a new era of airborne luxury, the likes of which hadn’t been seen since the mid-20th century’s so-called “golden age” of air travel. In its March 2001 issue, for example, Popular Mechanics, a reliable tribune for futurehype, published a cover story with the headline “Hotels in the Sky;” it explained: “Stop at the bar for a couple of beers, then work them off in the gym. Shave, shower and meet the wife at her health spa. Tag along while she shops. Have a gourmet dinner, then light up a Cuban cigar and sip cognac at a small piano bar. Log eight hours in the sack, eat a leisurely breakfast and collect the kids and Rover. Then move your seat to the full upright position, because this hasn’t been a getaway weekend. You’ve flown from New York to Sydney aboard the Airbus A380, the world’s first flying hotel.” That wasn’t all. In December 2000, Wired ran an Associated Press article with the headline “The Casino in the Sky,” which suggested the possibility of bars and gambling. As recently as 2007, Virgin Atlantic’s Richard Branson was promising “roulette and blackjack” which — in addition to double beds — Branson proclaimed in 2005,

healed. I am curious whether Santa Fe’s accident rate has increased over the past two months. Or was this project more about revenues than safety? After all, the state took 50 percent of the $100 ticket, Redflex scammed 38 percent and, sadly, the city ended up with only a pittance. Redflex is merely the road to privatization of law enforcement. I do not miss the adrenaline rush when the photo flash went off, even though I was not speeding, nor do I miss the invisible black car at night. I wonder: “Should I cancel the radar-avoiding stealth car I ordered? Is this intrusion ultimately Obama’s fault?” Then I remember the 28th Amendment to the Constitution: “No person shall be videotaped by unmanned photo vehicles.” Gary Reynolds

Middle seat gets more squeezed

could provide passengers with “two ways of getting lucky.” By the time the marketers were finished, it seemed the only thing a spacious A380 cabin would lack was a dance floor and mirror ball. Reality, however, was much more dull. Casinos haven’t materialized, and though some A380s have bars, and you may be able to walk around the duty-free shop on your Korean Air flight, from a passenger perspective what distinguishes the A380 interior is little more than size and a quiet environment. So how did Airbus go from offering a futurist’s dream of airline paradise, to possibly a frequent flier’s nightmare? In part, the A380 was designed for a regulated hub-andspoke model of running an airline — fly big planes long distances and little ones short distances — that’s increasingly out of favor in a world where deregulation allows more airlines to fly more places on fuel-efficient midsize planes that carry fewer passengers. If you’re trying to get from Shanghai to Seattle, you can now simply go directly with about 200 other passengers on a Boeing plane (via Delta). Indeed, Boeing — Airbus’ great rival — makes planes, including the slick, smaller 787 Dreamliner, designed for precisely that kind of point-to-point aviation universe. The proof is in the results. Airbus initially aimed for 750 total orders for the A380. At the end of 2013, it had just over 300 total orders; almost half of those were made by Dubai-based Emirates, which runs a successful hub-and-spoke business shuttling passengers between major airports around the world, and delivering them to Dubai, where they transfer — often to other A380s. And that’s largely a volume business, not a luxury one. The 3-5-3 seating configuration has only just become an option, and so it’s unlikely to land at your local hub any time soon. But fliers shouldn’t rest easy. Adam Minter is a regular contributor to Bloomberg View based in Shanghai and the author of Junkyard Planet, a book on the global recycling industry.


nyone curious about the minds of teenagers should take time to visit the Future Voices of New Mexico website. There, you can see the short videos and photographs made by young people from New Mexico — the 2014 winners were announced last week and should be up early in April. The project — to give young people the tools to tell their stories — brings together filmmakers, teachers and different cultural groups. Marcella Ernest and Christopher Michael Roybal are in charge of filmmaking, and Santa Fe Photo Workshops is the photography partner, along with director Reid Callanan. These professionals and others they recruit go out into the schools, meeting with teachers and students to enable them to tell stories. For students, in addition to monthly and then year-end recognition, their work is shown at the Lensic Performing Arts Center in an awards ceremony packed with emotion, creativity and joy. At 12 or 15 or 17, a student gets to look up on the big screen and see his or her work displayed proudly, on the same stage where Ralph Stanley has played music or Jeremy Irons interpreted Alfred Stieglitz to Joan Allen’s Georgia O’Keeffe. The winners, announced last week, featured work from creative young minds at the top of their games. Winners came from a broad variety of schools — Capital High School, Española Valley High School, Pojoaque Valley High, Santa Fe School for the Arts and Sciences and Desert Academy. Students from Albuquerque won prizes as well, with students from the state-chartered New Mexico School for the Arts, located in Santa Fe but with students from all over the state, taking home honors. The winners represented public, private and charter schools, but all shared a common bond, the ability — even the need — to tell stories. That shone through in both single images or threeminute shorts. Judge for yourselves, and visit www.futurevoicesof Winners from past years remain up, and organizers of the contest expected the 2014 batch to be posted this week. With all the wringing of hands over the state of teenagers, do yourself a favor. Take time to watch and see. You’ll feel better about the future.

Santa Fe spellers w-i-n


reativity takes many forms, of course. One form can be capturing the world in visual form. Another, though, is the curiosity to seek the meaning and origins of words. Santa Fe should be proud of its representatives at the recent state spelling bee. Desert Academy seventh-grader Anish Kumar won the New Mexico Spelling Bee, while Carlos Gilbert Elementary School fourth-grader Joaquin Bas took third. That is a wonderful achievement for both young men and for Santa Fe. Anish will represent New Mexico in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C., later this year, a rare opportunity. The skills he is mastering will last a lifetime. Learning to spell, after all, is about more than memorization. It is an exploration of language, culture and history. Top spellers combine intelligence and intuition with the ability to think fast on their feet. We congratulate both winners and look forward to a potential rematch next year at the Santa Fe County Spelling Bee — after all, the national bee is open to students in fourth to eighth grades. That means both Anish and Joaquin could return in 2015 with, we are sure, dozens of other hungry young spellers nipping at their feet.

NEW YORK — More men are steering clear of Broadway, and not even this spring’s ultimate bro show — Rocky, the new musical about the beloved boxing underdog — has found a way to fill seats with them. While men have been hanging back for years, their current scarcity, at a time when overall Broadway attendance is down, is particularly stark. Only 32 percent of audience members last year were men, or 3.7 million, compared with 42 percent (or 4.2 million) in 1980. This season is not providing any relief. New York Yankees fans skipped the baseball-themed Bronx Bombers, which flopped fast. John Grisham guys passed on the adaptation of A Time to Kill, which closed after seven weeks. Among musicals, Big Fish was all about dads, and First Date sold shot glasses to underscore its dude appeal, yet both shows were strikingly poor sellers. Women drive Broadway sales, though successful shows often depend on them to wrangle their husbands or boyfriends. That might be the Achilles’ heel of The Bridges of Madison County, a new romantic musical based on the enormously successful book and film. Producers have taken out emergency loans to keep running, in part because the show has proved so unpopular with men. “It’s always been a holy grail on Broadway — to have a show that universally appeals to men and women,” said Michele Groner, the lead marketing executive for Rocky. “Women are the low-hanging fruit. Trying to appeal to men is an increasingly scary challenge.” (The attendance problem is mostly with straight men; gay men are widely considered by producers and group sales agents to be a reliable Broadway demographic.) While a night out at the theater used to be a staple for cultured American men, fewer shows are grabbing them these days. One possible reason: The golden age of grown-up musicals like South Pacific and Guys and Dolls has given way to spectacleladen shows aimed at moms and children. And while families may have turned The Lion King and Wicked into billion-dollar blockbusters, men often feel either dragged along to such shows or grateful to be left home with the remote control. “When my wife and three girls invited me to Mary Poppins, I was like, ‘Are you kidding?’ ” said Bert Miranda, an insurance executive who was visiting New York with his family recently, recalling their last trip from Jacksonville, Fla. The Mirandas spoke after seeing Rocky, one of the big-budget new shows of the season. Producers believed that highlighting the show’s central romance in ads — with the tagline “Love Wins” — would attract women, while wide swaths of men would want to see a favorite hero. But Rocky has been struggling at the box office, grossing $799,879 last week, or 53 percent of the maximum possible amount — barely enough to break even. To bolster attendance, Rocky is now making a powerful push for men. The musical’s ads now feature the word “Knockout!” — used in some theater reviews — and television ads are running where the guys are: Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers, Saturday Night Live, Comedy Central, ESPN. The show is also pursuing a social media campaign using catchphrases from legends from football and baseball. While Rocky executives don’t have hard numbers by sex, they have noticed men attending together without women — an unusual sight on Broadway — and guys pumping their fists, trading high-fives and cheering Rocky during the climactic title fight, in which a boxing ring slides into the audience. “Some are in Hugo Boss suits; some are in sweatpants,” Groner said of the men. “But we need more of them.” Because Broadway producers do not disclose show-by-show breakdowns by sex — their trade organization releases the overall annual figures — there is no Top 10 list of shows for men. But according to Broadway marketing executives and group sales agents, recent musicals that have drawn strong numbers of men include The Book of Mormon, Jersey Boys, Rock of Ages, Motown the Musical and the Monty Python-inspired Spamalot. Some plays with popular alpha-male stars — like Glengarry Glen Ross with Al Pacino — were solid sellers as well. (Some 80 percent of all Broadway theatergoers see musicals.) Yet appealing too exclusively to men can backfire. The lack of men at recent sports plays on Broadway — Bronx Bombers, Magic/Bird and Lombardi — surprised their producers, given the promotional support from the professional baseball, basketball and football leagues. (No leagues or teams put money into the shows, the producers said.) Tony Ponturo, a lead producer of the plays, said he and his partners were “taking a breath” before deciding whether to do another sports play. “We had a lot of challenges, like getting our men from the suburbs to come during weeknights,” Ponturo said. “It takes time to blow up the routine of a male who doesn’t normally go to theater. But we didn’t have the money to keep waiting.”

UConn upsets Michigan State, back to Final Four

Djokovic beats Nadal to win 4th Key Biscayne

By Rachel Cohen

By Steven Wine

NEW YORK — Shabazz Napier owed UConn. He could have transferred when academic sanctions barred the Huskies from the NCAA tournament his junior season. But the guard wanted to pay back the school for the joy of a national title his freshman year, for his struggles as a sophomore. Napier sure did that Sunday, carrying UConn back to the Final Four in front of thousands of roaring Huskies fans at Madison Square Garden. He scored 17 of his 25 points in the second half in a 60-54 upset of fourthseeded Michigan State. The East Regional’s most outstanding player hit three huge free throws with 30.6 seconds left, making clutch shot after clutch shot just as Kemba Walker did when Napier was a freshman. The Huskies (30-8) rallied from a nine-point second-half deficit to become the first No. 7 seed to reach the Final Four since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985. “His will to win — you could just see it,” said Gary Harris, who led Michigan State with 22 points. “He wasn’t going to let his team lose.” The Spartans’ seniors become the first four-year players recruited by Tom Izzo to fail to make a Final Four. “As the game got closer and closer to ending, it was on my mind a lot, every huddle,” said big man Adreian Payne, who had 13 points and nine rebounds but was repeatedly pushed to the perimeter by UConn’s defenders. The undersized Huskies matched

KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. — Novak Djokovic stretched like a rubber band to hit a backhand. He sprinted into the other corner and scooped out forehands as if he was wielding a shovel. He ran forward to slice a ball off his shoetops. And he flicked a difficult half-volley past a weary Rafael Nadal for a winner. That was just on the last point. With superior offense and defense, Djokovic earned his fourth Key Biscayne title, while Nadal failed again trying for his first. Djokovic took charge midway through the first set Sunday and closed out the victory by winning a remarkable exchange to beat Nadal 6-3, 6-3 in the final of the Sony Open. “This tournament has been perfect from the beginning to the end,” Djokovic said. “The matches that I have played, I played really well, and I elevated my game as the tournament progressed. The best performance of the tournament came in the right moment on Sunday, against the biggest rival.”

Best kind of payback

Kurt Busch bests Johnson to win at Martinsville Speedway MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Kurt Busch’s Sunday at Martinsville Speedway, in some ways, was like his career wrapped into one afternoon. It started with a pit road confrontation with Brad Keselowski, one that had Busch threatening over his radio to rearrange Keselowski’s face when the race was finished, and ended with Busch ending an 83-race victory drought. The victory was his first for Stewart-Haas Racing, in just their sixth race together, suggesting that it could prove a very productive partnership, and one that a reflective Busch said he has learned to approach with a more mature attitude. “I ran a lot of my early part of my career as an individual and I didn’t respect my team, my team owners,” Busch said, adding that having Tony Stewart as a team owner has helped him learn the value of better team communication. Celebrating in Victory Lane also was emotional, too, because he got to do it for the first time with girlfriend Patricia’s son, Houston. Busch did it by passing Martinsville master Jimmie Johnson for the lead with 10 laps to go and holding off the eight-time winner to win at the track for the first time since October 2002. It was his 25th career Cuplevel victory, and that it came in the most unlikely of places suggested to Busch that he’s finally in the right place, team-wise and personally. Johnson seemed on his way to another victory when he took the lead from Busch with 17 laps remaining. But Busch stayed close, ducked underneath Johnson seven laps later and Johnson had nothing left to make a run at the lead, making for a politelooking finish. The Associated Press

Smith, Denorfia lift Padres to win over LA By Bernie Wilson

SAN DIEGO — Seth Smith hit a tying homer leading off the eighth and Chris Denorfia singled home two runs to give the San Diego Padres a 3-1 victory against the rival Los Angeles Dodgers in baseball’s North American opener Padres 3 Sunday night. Dodgers 1 Smith’s first hit with the Padres came on a 2-0 pitch from Brian Wilson, who started the eighth after Hyun-Jin Ryu threw seven scoreless innings. It sailed an estimated 360 feet into the right-field seats. It was his seventh career pinch-hit homer. He was acquired in an offseason trade with Oakland for reliever Luke Gregerson. Wilson (0-1) walked pinch-hitter Yasmani

Grandal, who advanced when the veteran reliever couldn’t handle Everth Cabrera’s bunt for an error. Grandal stole third and Cabrera took second on indifference before Denorfia hit a bouncer up the middle to bring them both in. Dale Thayer (1-0) pitched a perfect eighth for the win. Huston Street finished for the save. The defending NL West champion Dodgers had started the regular season with a two-game sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks in Sydney. Ryu got the start after reigning NL Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw was scratched due to a swollen back muscle and then placed on the 15-day disabled list for the first time in his seven-year career. In a scheduling quirk, the left-hander started consecutive regular-season games.

He made his season debut a week earlier, when the Dodgers beat the Diamondbacks in their second game in Australia. Ryu retired 16 in a row from the second inning until one out in the seventh. He then walked rookie Tommy Medica, who was then erased in a 3-6-3 double play. Ryu allowed three hits, struck out seven and walked three. The Dodgers grabbed the lead on a nice piece of hitting by Carl Crawford with two out in the fifth. Crawford went the other way with an 0-2 pitch from Andrew Cashner, hitting it over third baseman Chase Headley to bring in Dee Gordon from second. Gordon had reached on a walk and advanced when Cashner fielded Ryu’s bunt and forced A.J. Ellis at third. Cashner allowed four hits in six innings. He struck out five and walked two.

MLB: Most parks sunny, warm for games Continued from Page B-1 continents and put $215 million ace Clayton Kershaw on the disabled list. Los Angeles swept a pair Down Under from the Diamondbacks on March 22-23, with Kershaw winning the first regular-season major league game in Australia before an upper back muscle acted up. The Dodgers then lost to San Diego in the North American opener Sunday night. Still, ballparks around country will be buzzing with optimistic fans and, other than in Oakland, sunny skies and seasonably warm temperatures are expected to provide a wonderful backdrop — what a relief! — for the days’ festivities. “Should be a pretty good day for a ballgame,” said Richard

Bann, a meteorologist at the Weather Prediction Center. The Pittsburgh Pirates certainly will be celebrating their first winning season and trip to the playoffs since 1992, and they’ll have help handing out some hardware from two key members of that team: Barry Bonds and Jim Leyland. Bonds, the ’92 NL MVP, will be on hand to honor 2013 MVP Andrew McCutcheon. The recently retired Leyland, a twotime Manager of the Year with Pittsburgh, is going to present Clint Hurdle with his Manager of the Year award for guiding the Pirates to a 94-68 record and wild-card berth. The son of Hall of Famer Ralph Kiner, who died in February, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Kiner will be honored in

New York, too, where the Mets host Stephen Strasburg and the Washington Nationals, a World Series favorite once again. Dillon Gee will make his first opening day start after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio throws out the ceremonial first pitch. In Texas, Tanner Scheppers, a converted setup man, will be the first pitcher to make his first major league start in a season opener since Fernando Valenzuela in 1981 for the Dodgers. Scheppers will have new slugger Prince Fielder at first base when the Rangers host Cliff Lee and the Philadelphia Phillies in an interleague game. Scheppers got the nod because major league strikeout leader Yu Darvish is on the disabled list with a sore neck. Atlanta’s Kris Medlen, Oakland’s Jarrod Parker and Ari-

zona’s Patrick Corbin are out, too. While Darvish may miss only one start, Medlen, Parker and Corbin are out for the season after having Tommy John surgery. One pitcher who escaped serious injury is Reds closer Aroldis Chapman. He’s sidelined at least a month more after being hit in the forehead by a line drive during spring training. Not only will Cincinnati be without Chapman when it opens against NL Central rival St. Louis for just the second time in 20 years, the Reds have eight players on the DL — a major league high heading into the season. Texas is right behind with seven. The Milwaukee Brewers get back star slugger Ryan Braun for their home opener against the Braves.

Tennis: Nadal 0-4 at Key Biscayne Continued from Page B-1 Nadal fell to 0-4 in finals at Key Biscayne, one of just three ATP Masters 1000 events he has yet to win. “No frustration. That’s tennis,” he said. “I tried everything. I tried my best. It was not enough. The opponent was just better than me, and when the opponent is better, he’s better.” As for Djokovic, only six-time champion Andre Agassi has won the men’s event more. Djokovic erased the only break point he faced, committed just 15 unforced errors and won a scrambling, 30-shot rally on the final point with a series of improbable saves. He then dropped his racket, threw up his arms and collapsed on his back as the crowd roared. He completed a March sweep after beating Roger Federer in the final at Indian Wells two weeks ago. Even so, Nadal will remain ranked No. 1 and Djokovic No. 2. Either Nadal or Djokovic is the reigning champion in all nine Masters 1000 tournaments. Is Nadal glad to have Djokovic as a rival? “No,” Nadal said with a smile. “I like challenges, but I am not stupid.” Djokovic had a different take on the rivalry, and credited Nadal and Federer for helping him to become a six-time Grand Slam champion. “Because of Rafa and because of Roger, I am what I am today,” Djokovic said. “All the big matches I lost to these guys, not winning the big matches, they made me understand what I need to do on the court.” Nadal and Djokovic have played 40 matches, the most of any men’s pairing in the Open era, and few have been so lopsided. “I didn’t have any letdowns throughout the whole match,” Djokovic said. “I was in a very high level — serve, backhand, crosscourt, forehand. I have done everything right, and I’m thrilled with my performance.” Nadal stood six feet behind the baseline to return and often remained on the defensive from there, with his shots lacking their normal depth. Djokovic was quick to step into the court and even won a point playing serve and volley. Chasing down shots Nadal usually counts as winners, Djokovic won the majority of long rallies. Serving well, Djokovic also won most of the short points. Nadal said he felt fine physically, and his problem was Djokovic. “He was having too much success with every shot,” Nadal said.

UConn: Huskies coach 4-0 in tourney Continued from Page B-1

Kemba Walker. Things went sour in Storrs after that. Calhoun retired in 2012 and UConn was barred from the NCAA tournament last season for failing to meet the NCAA’s academic progress measure. UConn’s upperclassmen decided to stick it out instead of transferring and put together another magical bracket run behind another do-it-all-player, former Walker understudy Napier. With their 60-54 win over Michigan State on Sunday, the Huskies (30-8) became the first No. 7 seed to reach the Final Four since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985. UConn beat Florida 65-64 way back on Dec. 2, the Gators’ last loss this season. “We play a great Florida team and we’re going to be well prepared, because I know about these guys’ heart, and that’s what got us through,” Ollie said. Then there’s Bo. Wisconsin’s tell-it-like-it-is coach had been a regular at the Final Four, taking his father, Butch, to every one since 1976 as a birthday gift. Bo had a hard time getting there with

his team, though, winning over 700 games, playing in the NCAA tournament 13 straight years and reaching the Sweet 16 six times — and not one trip to the Final Four. Bo and Badgers (30-7) get their chance now after pulling out an emotional 64-63 win over top-seeded Arizona in the West Regional final on Saturday, which would have been Butch Ryan’s 90th birthday. “I can remember some of the great teams that he had of kids and their first championships and how they acted and just the joy,” Ryan said. “These guys have had some others, but that’s all I wanted to see.” Rounding out this foursome could be the most fearsome bunch of the bracket. Kentucky won the 2012 national championship behind coach John Calipari’s getthe-best-players-no-matter-how-long-theystay philosophy. Cal brought in another heralded group of one-and-doners and they were touted as the team to beat, ranked No. 1 in the preseason. After a string of losses, including three in five games, the kid Cats were out of the polls and supposedly out of contention. Well, look at them now.

Wildcats: Lee helps Kentucky stay in game going to shoot it again.” It wasn’t all Harrison, of course. While he was being shut down early, it was Marcus Lee — surprisingly — keeping the Wildcats in the game. Lee, another of the McDonald’s All-American freshmen on Calipari’s roster, had scored a total of nine points since the beginning of January, relegated to the bench after an early season illness. In this one, he got minutes that would have normally gone

Heavy-hitters head to Final Four in North Texas

The road to redemption goes through North Texas for a fearsome Final Four of power programs with something to prove. Florida, the top overall seed, returns to the Final Four for the first time since winning consecutive titles in 2006-07, this time without all those first-round NBA picks. Waiting for the Gators at Jerry Jones’ billion-dollar stadium on Saturday will be Connecticut, back near the top of the bracket under Kevin Ollie after being barred a year ago for academic problems. Wisconsin and coach Bo Ryan will be there, too, finally in the Final Four after so many near-misses. Bo knows the Final Four — even if his father won’t be there to join him this time. Facing the Badgers in the other national semifinal will be all those Kentucky kids, once written off as too young and inexperienced to play for a title before they head off to the NBA. This Final Four contains no upstarts or mid-major party crashers, just big boys with big chips on their shoulders. Donovan won a pair of national titles in Gainesville with Joakim Noah, Corey Brewer and Al Horford, all top-10 NBA picks in the 2007 NBA draft. After that second title, he accepted the head-coaching job with the NBA’s Orlando Magic, then changed his mind after the introductory news conference. Donovan continued to produce winning teams at Florida, but the biggest wins eluded the Gators. They lost in the regional final each of the past three seasons. That changed when the ferocious Gators (36-2) rode their chomping defense through a 30-game winning streak capped by Saturday’s 62-52 win over bracket darling Dayton. “We didn’t start off the exact way that we should have, but coach Donovan continued to remind us and humble us and help us see that, in order to get where we want to get to, the end goal, we have to continue to chase greatness every single day and stay in the moment,” Florida forward Patric Young said. To win another title, the Gators will have to go through the last two teams to beat them this season (UConn and Wisconsin) or their biggest SEC rival (Kentucky). The Huskies won the 2011 national title with coach Jim Calhoun and one-man show

Monday, March 31, 2014 THE NEW MEXICAN

to the injured Willie CauleyStein, and finished with 10 points and eight rebounds. Eight of those points came on put-back dunks that were part of Kentucky’s 18 offensive rebounds. Harrison’s first 3 gave Kentucky a 58-55 lead and was part of an 11-0 run that made it 62-55 with 6:30 left. The Wolverines fought back, and during a nine-possession stretch of sublime basketball the teams traded scores. The next stop gave the Wolverines the ball with about a minute left, trailing 72-70.

Stauskas missed a layup and a 3-pointer, then Derrick Walton missed an open 3. But the fourth attempt went in with 31 seconds left and got credited to Jordan Morgan on a scramble under the basket, though it was Randle’s hand that tipped the ball in. Calipari called a timeout. Michigan burned a foul. And the endgame started with 10 seconds left. The ball went to Harrison and it was clear he was going to take the shot. Randle finished with 16 points and 11 rebounds. He’s a Dallas kid and will play in the

sport’s biggest spectacle not far from home. If that doesn’t feel like hitting the lottery, well, a few weeks later, he probably will. Randle is considered lottery pick material if he decides to go to the NBA, as expected. Others could join him in the Association, the latest group of one-and-done Wildcats that Calipari has put together. They’ll deal with that in 10 days or so. “We’re going to go back and practice, go back and see if we can get better between now and the Final Four,” Calipari said.

Michigan State’s physical play box-out for box-out, holding the Spartans (29-9) to just six offensive rebounds and six points in the paint. “We’re physical, too,” said second-year coach Kevin Ollie, who is now 4-0 in the NCAA tournament after replacing mentor Jim Calhoun. “Don’t get it mixed up. We are predators out there.” UConn dared Michigan State to shoot 3-pointers, and the Spartans nearly made enough, going 11 for 29 from behind the arc. Harris was 4 for 9 on 3s, but his teammates were a combined 10 for 32 from the floor. Trailing 51-49 with more than two minutes left, Michigan State had a chance to tie or take the lead. Payne threw the ball away, and Napier drilled a jumper on the other end. After Payne’s free throws pulled the Spartans back within two, Keith Appling was whistled for a foul — the fifth on Michigan State’s other senior starter — for contact with Napier on a 3-point attempt. Napier extended the lead to 56-51, and after Travis Trice missed a 3, Phillip Nolan slipped free for a dunk that clinched the victory. “We got what we deserved today,” Izzo said. “I tried to tell these guys that, when you get to the tournament, you got to bring it every second. And today Connecticut did, and we just kind of weren’t as good as we have been.” Ryan Boatright made four steals as Michigan State committed 16 turnovers. Some were caused by UConn’s quickness, others by poor decisions by the Spartans. Izzo thought his team, a popular pick to win it all after finally getting healthy in March, looked tired. DeAndre Daniels shut down Branden Dawson, who scored 24 points in Michigan State’s Sweet 16 win over top-seeded Virginia. Dawson attempted just three field goals, making one, to finish with five points. The 6-foot-10, 245-pound Payne hit two long jumpers to put Michigan State up 32-23 less than four minutes into the second half. But Napier started driving, getting the bigger Appling in foul trouble and UConn back in the game. “When Coach looks at me a certain way, I just know I got to be more aggressive,” said Napier, who passed Ray Allen for fourth on the Huskies’ all-time scoring list with 1,925 points. After hitting four straight free throws to tie the score at 32 with 12:38 left, Napier was struck in the face by Harris — the UConn guard was called for a foul on the play — and left the court with his nose gushing blood. He was back less than a minute later when Daniels completed a three-point play to give the Huskies the lead for good. Boatright’s contested 3-pointer with the shot clock winding down put UConn up 49-39 with less than seven minutes left. The Huskies won their third national title in 2011, but they were ineligible for last year’s tournament because of previous low scores on the NCAA’s academic progress measure. They face Florida in the national semifinals Saturday, and they’ll be confident they can beat the No. 1 overall seed. The Gators have won 30 straight, but their last loss was to UConn, 65-64 on Dec. 2. After the Huskies were routed 81-48 by Louisville in the regular-season finale, Ollie showed his players video of that victory to remind them of what happens when they play frenetic defense. “We’re going to be well prepared, because I know about these guys’ heart,” Ollie said. “That’s what got us through: It was a heart of a champion, heart of a lion.”

Nephew could be bullying Granny

Dear Annie: My husband and I have two children, ages 11 and 8. They enjoy spending time with my mother-in-law. The problem is, my husband’s nephew lives with Granny and brings girls home with him for sex. The latest girlfriend likes to brag about it in front of everyone, including my kids. We tried letting the kids visit when the nephew was at work, but the girlfriend kept showing up. I don’t want my children learning about sex at Granny’s house. Mom says there’s nothing she can do — her house, her business. Now she has shut us out completely. We no longer see her or talk to her. Our kids are hurt. What can we do? — Looking for Middle Ground Dear Looking: First, please be sure that the nephew and his girlfriend are not somehow bullying or abusing Granny. It’s one thing if she simply thinks you should leave her alone and another if she is intimidated and afraid of antagonizing the nephew. You may need to contact Adult Protective Services in your area for help. Otherwise, perhaps your husband could speak directly to his nephew, without blame or judgment, and say that the kids miss Granny, and his girlfriend’s uninhibited conversation makes it difficult to visit. Enlist his help to remedy the situation for the sake of family harmony. We hope he will ask his girlfriend to put a filter on her mouth when the kids are around and convince his grandmother to open her home. Dear Annie: My boyfriend’s mother can be a nightmare. Boundaries mean nothing to her. Her oldest son and his wife moved out of state to get away from her. My own mother taught me how to handle her. First, she kept reminding me that this woman created the man I love, so there must be something good about her. Then she and my grandmother began inviting my

boyfriend’s mother to women’s lunches and small outings. They developed a beautiful relationship, and now our families share holidays together. This set a great example for me. I began taking cooking and painting classes with my future mother-in-law at the local library and going on errands with her when my boyfriend was busy. I helped her in the kitchen and asked for her advice. I understood how much I had to gain by sharing small pieces of my day-to-day life and taking her to places we enjoy. As I developed my own relationship with her, it became easier to carve out special time with my boyfriend. She felt included in our life and was more likely to respect our time together. Of course, there are times when she still steps on my toes, and my boyfriend lays down the law, but there is no resentment because of the effort I have made. I have gained a second mother by being patient, tolerant and kind. It took time, but I can truly say that she is my family now. My boyfriend and I plan to marry soon, and I know his mother can’t wait. Had I been cold or resentful toward her, I would have missed out. For all the people in a serious relationship: Make the effort now. It’s worth it. Family is important, and life is short. — Thankful for Her Dear Thankful: Thank you for understanding the long-term gain of having this relationship and being willing to do the work to make it happen. And bless your mother for her wisdom. We hope every soon-to-be bride will clip this out and save it for future reference. Dear Annie: Grandparents complain that they don’t get thank-you notes or phone calls for gifts to grandchildren. I’ve noticed that grandparents rarely send thank-you notes to grandchildren when they do something special. We MUST teach by example. — Menasha, Wis.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Your playfulness and ability to honor a quick change will make all the difference in your choices. Tonight: Ever playful. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You’ll want to understand why someone is behaving a certain way before you make a judgment. This person seems to be all over the place. Tonight: Make it early.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Reach out to someone at a distance who might be searching for some feedback. Try to understand what is going on. Tonight: Catch up on emails before deciding what to do. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH You might be more sensitive to a loved one than you usually would deem necessary. Your ability to understand mood changes probably could be applied. Tonight: Treat a loved one to a favorite dessert. Jacqueline Bigar
