Hens not ‘recognized household pets’; owners plan to discuss appeal By Anne Constable
The New Mexican
Chicken owners in Eldorado suffered a setback Friday when a state district judge ordered them to remove their backyard hens, saying they aren’t legal under a subdivision covenant permitting only “recognized household pets.” The case against poultry owners brought by the Eldorado Community Improvement Association was set to go to trial May 5. District Court Judge Pro Tem Mark A. Macaron granted the association’s motion for summary judgment and gave the seven chicken owners named in the case until Sept. 14 to comply. Gershon Siegel said that the chicken owners would meet Tuesday with their lawyer to discuss an appeal. “We can’t just walk away from this,” he said. Siegel said it looked to him like the judge in the case had accepted the ECIA’s arguments “hook, line and sinker.” Jan Deligans, an Eldorado lot owner and former board member who is not a party in the case, said she was “shocked” by the decision. “I feel terrible for these folks.” Dag Ryen, ECIA board president, applauded the decision and said in a statement, “We hope that we can now put this unfortunate conflict behind us and continue on to serve the broad interests of the Eldorado community.” Claudia Daigle, an resident opposed to “chickens as pets,” posted

he bagpipes played “Danny Boy” in the Capitol Rotunda for Max Coll on Monday as some friends and family wept openly at the end of a memorial service for the late Santa Fe lawmaker, who died last month at the age of 82. Former legislative colleagues and other friends paid tribute to Coll, who retired in 2004 after serving more than 25 years in the state House of Representatives. They told of his knowledge of the legislative process, his expertise in fiscal matters, his sense of justice and his political transformation from Roswell conservative to Santa Fe liberal. They also spoke lovingly about the joy Coll took in the outdoors, his collection of animals, his knack for telling stories, his big smile, his unruly hair. “He made us laugh with his wicked sense of humor,” said Associated Press reporter Barry Massey, who gave one of the eulogies. Massey was a personal friend of Coll’s who went on river-rafting trips with him. “He made us pause

and think about the insights he offered into the politics and problems of the world. He shared with us his passion for rivers, canyons and the outdoors — but especially,
he shared his passion for life and people.” Former House Speaker Raymond Sanchez told the story of how Coll switched parties in 1983. Sanchez, an Albuquerque Democrat, said he first met Coll in 1969 at a constitutional convention, back when Coll was a Republican representing a Roswell district. Coll left the Legislature in the early ’70s to go to law school. He later moved to Santa Fe and was elected, still as a Republican, to the District 47 seat in Santa Fe. By 1983, Sanchez was embroiled in a close race for the speakership against a coalition of Republicans and conservative Democrats. Coll had been hospitalized for an ailment and Sanchez went to visit him in the hospital. That visit, as Sanchez told it, sparked a conversation about the possibility of Coll supporting Sanchez. One morning over breakfast at the Tecolote Café, Sanchez said, Coll told him, “I think I can do something for you.” Later, Coll told Sanchez, “I’m going to switch parties.” And that he did.

A Stradivari? Violinists can’t tell In blind test, seasoned soloists preferred new violins over old By Pam Belluck

modern instrument cannot compare to the magic of a Stradivarius worth millions. Researchers looking into this belief beg to differ. In a new study, they report that internationally accomplished violinists could not distinguish between old and new in a blind playoff, and that many chose a new instrument as their favorite. “There’s this caricature that new violins are too loud, too ear-piercing,” said Claudia Fritz, a music researcher at the Pierre and Marie Curie University in Paris, who led the study.
ALBUQUERQUE — The U.S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal Monday from a studio that refused to photograph a lesbian couple’s commitment ceremony, letting stand a New Mexico high court ruling that helped spur a national debate over gay rights and religious freedom. The justices left in place a unanimous state Supreme Court ruling last year that said Elane Photography violated New Mexico’s Human Rights Act by refusing to photograph the same-sex ceremony “in the same way as if it had refused to photograph a wedding between people of different races.” Elane Photography co-owner Elaine Huguenin said taking the photos for Vanessa Willock and her partner would violate her religious beliefs. She said she also has a right of artistic expression under the First Amendment that allows her to choose what pictures to take, or refrain from taking. She was ordered to pay more than $7,000 in attorneys’ fees, which Willock waived. The case has been cited as lawmakers in other states have proposed legislation exempting people from such lawsuits if doing business with same-sex couples violates their religious beliefs.

NATION&WORLD Fed gives banks 2 more years on risky securities The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve is giving U.S. banks two more years to ensure their holdings of certain complex and risky securities don’t put them afoul of the new Volcker Rule. The Fed’s move announced Monday didn’t give banks an outright exemption for the securities from the Volcker Rule’s ban on high-risk investments. Wall Street banks had sought an exemption and the leading Wall Street lobbying group expressed disappointment with the Fed’s move. The Volcker Rule, adopted in December, is intended to limit banks’ riskiest trading bets that could implode at taxpayers’ expense. That kind of risk-taking on Wall Street helped trigger the 2008 financial crisis. Congress mandated the Volcker Rule in its financial overhaul law. The Fed gave banks until July 2017 to “conform” their holdings of the collateralized loan obligations. The Fed previously had given banks a one-year extension, to July 2015. Banks had contended that without an exemption, they would be forced under the Volcker Rule to shed their CLO securities at a disadvantage. “Any forced selling of these securities will … damage a key source of funding for businesses” by distorting market prices for the securities, Kenneth Bentsen, president of the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association, said in a statement.

FORT HOOD, Texas — Army investigators on Monday released a more detailed timeline of last week’s fatal shootings at Fort Hood, describing an 8-minute rampage in which the suspect fired 35 shots over an area spanning the equivalent of two city blocks. Three people were killed and 16 others wounded in the shooting spree before the suspect, Spc. Ivan Lopez, killed himself, authorities said. During a news conference Monday, Army spokesman Chris Grey said the shootings at the Texas post followed an argument related to Lopez’s request for taking leave, but he didn’t indicate whether it was granted or describe circumstances behind the request. A spokesman for Lopez’s family said last week that Lopez was upset he was granted only a 24-hour leave to attend his mother’s funeral in November. That leave was then extended to two days. The shooting spree Wednesday ended when Lopez killed himself with his .45-caliber pistol after confronting a female military police officer, who Grey said fired once at Lopez but didn’t strike him.
Hagel tours new Chinese carrier BEIJING — The United States’ campaign to encourage China to be more open about its military growth and intentions got a symbolic boost Monday, but efforts to get the Asian giant to be more transparent about other defense operations, including cybersecurity, have so far lagged behind. U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel got a rare tour of China’s first aircraft carrier, becoming the first foreign visitor to go aboard the ship, according to Chinese leaders. But in a speech planned for Tuesday, Hagel will point to cybersecurity as an example of an area where the U.S. would like the Chinese to be more transparent, said a senior U.S. official, who was not authorized to talk publicly about the speech so spoke on condition of anonymity. Hagel arrived in Beijing after a stop in Japan, where he told reporters that China must be more open about its military buildup and better respect its neighbors — a pointed allusion to Beijing’s ongoing territorial dispute with Japan and others over remote islands in the East China Sea.

NO MORE SELFIES AT WHITE HOUSE
Some of America’s Olympic athletes say they were asked to keep their cellphones in their pockets last week when they visited the White House and met with President Barack Obama. The White House said that’s longstanding practice because taking individual photos with hundreds of people wouldn’t be practical, and there are official photographers at such events. But the request to the Olympians drew attention because it came after the selfie Boston Red Sox slugger David ‘Big Papi’ Ortiz took with the president during his team’s visit to the White House on April 1. Many criticized that snapshot as a marketing ploy after Samsung, the maker of the phone Ortiz used for the selfie, used the picture in an advertisement. Ortiz denied taking the picture with the knowledge it would be part of a promotion. ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO
Polio spreads from Syria to Iraq
caused by the divisions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The residents of the Shuafat refugee camp are technically part of the Jerusalem municipality. But they live outside the massive West Bank separation barrier that Israel has built. So Israeli services are sparse, yet Palestinian authorities are barred from operating there or developing the water system. The local Israeli water authority says the existing system of pipes cannot handle the rapid population growth of the area and it is scrambling to solve the problem. But with the scorching summer season approaching, residents are growing increasingly desperate. Basic tasks like brushing teeth are a challenge. Showers have become a luxury. Families often send their clothes to relatives elsewhere in the city to wash them.
Syria’s polio outbreak has now officially spread to Iraq, the first neighbor of the war-ravaged country to be hit by the crippling virus despite an ambitious Middle East inoculation effort, and global health officials warned Monday that dozens of vulnerable Iraqi children could potentially be infected. The transmission of polio, a highly contagious disease that primarily afflicts children younger than 5 and can lead to partial and sometimes fatal paralysis, reflects one of the most insidious effects of the 3-year-old Syria conflict, which has sent millions of refugees across the country’s borders and severely undermined its public health system.
U.S. blocks Iran’s U.N. ambassador
Detainee’s health cited for release
The Senate voted unanimously Monday night to bar Iran’s newly named ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, charging that he was involved in the hostage-taking at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran in 1979. The vote came together in a matter of hours after Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., joined forces with Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who has been inveighing against the ambassador, Hamid Aboutalebi. “It may be a case of strange bedfellows, but I’m glad Sen. Cruz and I were able to work out a bill that would prevent this terrorist from stepping foot on American soil,” Schumer said after the voice vote.

Lawyers for the last former British resident imprisoned at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, asked a federal judge on Monday to order his release because he has posttraumatic stress disorder and other mental and physical ailments. The motion on behalf of the detainee, Shaker Aamer, 45, a Saudi citizen, represents a new tactic by lawyers seeking the release of Guantánamo detainees by building on a court’s decision last year that a Sudanese detainee should be allowed to leave because of health problems. In the past, prisoners have been released because of insufficient evidence tying them to al-Qaida. New Mexican wire services

PRETORIA, South Africa — His voice shaking, Oscar Pistorius took the witness stand Monday for the first time, testifying that he was trying to protect the girlfriend he killed and that he became so tormented by memories of the fatal shooting and panic attacks that he once hid helplessly in a closet. Pistorius also offered an apology to the family of Reeva Steenkamp, who died from multiple wounds after the double-amputee runner shot her through a closed toilet door last year in his home. He said he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder. Prosecutors allege he killed her after an argument. “There hasn’t been a moment since this tragedy happened that I haven’t thought about your family,” the athlete said at the murder trial as Steenkamp’s mother, June, looked impassively at him in the courtroom. “I was simply trying to protect Reeva. I can promise that when she went to bed that night she felt loved,” Pistorius said. Pistorius’ display of anguish and remorse was a marked departure from the testimony of some prosecution witnesses whose accounts painted a picture of the runner as a hothead with a jealous streak before he killed Steenkamp, a 29-year-old model. He has yet to be cross-examined about the shooting in the early hours of Feb. 14, 2013. Pistorius was charged with premeditated murder and faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted. Some analysts think the judge, who will decide the case, will consider a lesser charge such as homicide, which could still send him to prison for years. Pistorius, 27, spoke in a soft, quavering voice at the start of his testimony, forcing Judge Thokozile Masipa to ask him to speak more loudly. Defense lawyer Barry Roux, who had aggressively challenged prosecution witnesses since the trial began March 3, led Pistorius gently through events in a life that was held up, in the runner’s heyday, as an inspiring tale. Pistorius was born without fibula bones because of a congenital defect, and his legs were amputated when he was 11 months old. He ran on carbon-fiber blades and is a multiple Paralympic medalist. He also competed at the London Olympics but didn’t win a medal. Pistorius will return Tuesday to continue testifying after the judge granted an early adjournment because she said Pistorius looked “exhausted.” Pistorius said he had not slept the night before. “I’m just very tired at the moment,” he said. “The weight of this is extremely overbearing.”

MALAYSIA FLIGHT 370
Ship hunting for more ‘pings’ Time running out for black-box beacons
A map indicates the locations of search vessels looking for signs of the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in the southern Indian Ocean on Monday. An Australian official says underwater sounds picked up by equipment on an Australian navy ship are consistent with transmissions from black box recorders on a plane. COURTESY JOINT AGENCY COORDINATION CENTRE
several days of intense action ahead of us.” Houtson said finding the sound again was critical to narrowing down the search area before the sub can be used. If the vehicle went down now with the sparse data collected so far, it would take “many, many days” for it to cover all the places the pings might have come from. “It’s literally crawling at the bottom of the ocean so it’s going to take a long, long time,” Houston said. Despite the excitement surrounding the Ocean Shield’s sound detections, Houston warned that the search had previously been marred by false leads — such as ships detecting their own signals. Because of that, other ships cannot be sent in to help with the underwater search, as they may add unwanted noise. “We’re very hopeful we will find further evidence that will confirm the aircraft is in that location,” Houston said. “There’s still a little bit of doubt there, but I’m a lot more optimistic than I was one week ago.” Finding the black boxes is key to unraveling what happened to the Boeing 777, because they contain flight data and cockpit voice recordings that could explain why the plane veered so far off-course. “Everyone’s anxious about the life of the batteries on the black box flight recorders,” said Truss, who is acting prime minister while Tony Abbott is overseas. “Sometimes they go on for many, many weeks longer than they’re mandated to operate for
— we hope that’ll be the case in this instance. But clearly there is an aura of urgency about the investigation.” The first sound picked up by the equipment on board the Ocean Shield lasted two hours and 20 minutes before it was lost, Houston said. The ship then turned around and picked up a signal again — this time recording two distinct “pinger returns” that lasted 13 minutes. That would be consistent with transmissions from both the flight data recorder and the cockpit voice recorder. The black boxes normally emit a frequency of 37.5 kilohertz, and the signals picked up by the Ocean Shield were both 33.3 kilohertz, U.S. Navy Capt. Mark Matthews said. But the manufacturer indicated the frequency of black boxes can drift in older equipment. Houston said the frequency of the sounds heard was considered “quite credible” by the manufacturer, and noted that the frequency from the Air France jet that crashed several years ago was 34 kilohertz. Pressure from being so deep below the surface and the age of the batteries can also affect the transmission level, he said. The frequency used by aircraft flight recorders was chosen because no other devices use it, and because nothing in the natural world mimics it, said William Waldock, a searchand-rescue expert who teaches accident investigation at EmbryRiddle Aeronautical University in Prescott, Ariz. But these signals are being detected by computer sweeps, and “not so much a guy with
Pro-Russians proclaim eastern Ukraine region independent DONETSK, Ukraine — ProMoscow activists barricaded inside government buildings in eastern Ukraine proclaimed their regions independent Monday and called for a referendum on seceding from Ukraine — an ominous echo of the events that led to Russia’s annexation of Crimea. The Ukrainian government accused Russia of stirring up the unrest and tried to flush the assailants from some of the seized buildings, setting off fiery clashes in one city. Russia, which has tens of thousands of troops massed along the border, sternly warned Ukraine against using force. In Washington, the U.S. said any move by Russia into eastern Ukraine would be a “very serious escalation” that could bring further sanctions. At the same time, the U.S. announced that Secretary of State John Kerry will meet with top diplomats from Russia, Ukraine and the European Union.

PERTH, Australia — Search crews hunting for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet have failed to relocate faint sounds heard deep below the Indian Ocean that officials said were consistent with a plane’s black boxes, the head of the search operation said Tuesday. Angus Houston, the retired Australian air chief marshal who is heading the search far off Australia’s west coast, said sound locating equipment on board the Ocean Shield has picked up no trace of the signals since they were first heard late Saturday and early Sunday. Time may have already run out to find the devices, whose locator beacons have a battery life of about a month. Tuesday marks one month since the plane vanished. Once the beacons blink off, locating the black boxes in such deep water would be an immensely difficult, if not impossible, task. “There have been no further contacts with any transmission and we need to continue [searching] for several days right up to the point at which there’s absolutely no doubt that the batteries will have expired,” Houston said. If, by that point, the U.S. Navy listening equipment being towed behind the Ocean Shield has failed to pick up any signals, a sub on board the ship will be deployed to try and chart out any debris on the sea floor. If the sub maps out a debris field, the crew will replace the sonar system with a camera unit to photograph any wreckage. Houston’s comments contradicted an earlier statement from Australia’s acting prime minister, Warren Truss, who said search crews would launch the Bluefin 21 autonomous sub on Tuesday. The towed pinger locator detected late Saturday and early Sunday two distinct, long-lasting sounds underwater that are consistent with the pings from an aircraft’s “black boxes” — the flight data and cockpit voice recorders, Houston said, dubbing the find a promising lead in the monthlong hunt for clues to the plane’s fate. Still, officials warned it could take days to determine whether the sounds were connected to Flight 370, which vanished March 8 on a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing with 239 on board. “This is an herculean task — it’s over a very, very wide area, the water is extremely deep,” Defense Minister David Johnston said. “We have at least

headphones on listening to pings,” said U.S. Navy spokesman Chris Johnson. So until the signals are fully analyzed, it’s too early to say what they are, he said. “We’ll hear lots of signals at different frequencies,” he said. “Marine mammals. Our own ship systems. Scientific equipment, fishing equipment, things like that. And then of course there are lots of ships operating in the area that are all radiating certain signals into the ocean.” The Ocean Shield is dragging a ping locator at a depth of 1.9 miles. It is designed to detect signals at a range of 1.12 miles, meaning it would need to be almost on top of the recorders to detect them if they were on the ocean floor, which is about 2.8 miles deep. Meanwhile, the search for any trace of the plane on the ocean’s surface continued Tuesday. Up to 14 planes and as many ships were focusing on a single search area covering 29,954 square miles of ocean, 1,400 miles northwest of the Australian west coast city of Perth, with good weather predicted, said the Joint Agency Coordination Center, which is overseeing the operation.

Impatient Afghan candidates counting their votes
The Washington Post
KABUL — In this rugged country where ballots are counted by hand and election results are viewed with suspicion, impatient presidential candidates are not willing to wait for official numbers and have started counting votes themselves. After Saturday’s presidential election, tens of thousands of volunteers for the candidates are visiting polling stations across the country to call in results that have been taped on the walls of mosques and schools. The team of former finance minister Ashraf Ghani has created a slick website with pie charts and bar graphs that show partial returns as they come in, three weeks ahead of the expected announcement of the winner. Perhaps unsurprisingly, his website is projecting that he will be the victor (by a margin of 57 percent, with a quarter of the ballots counted). The days after the vote have transformed campaign offices into command centers, where candidates’ staffs are calling around the country collecting photos and videos and complaints about alleged fraud, calculating vote totals and positioning themselves for a possible runoff election if no candidate passes the 50 percent threshold. The early and partial results, which have been bandied about on social media and are showing a tight race between Ghani and former foreign minister Abdullah Abdullah, have galled the candidates who appear to be losing. “It’s illegal work, and it’s against all principles,” Gul Agha Sherzai, a presidential candidate and former governor of Nangahar province, said about the early totals in an interview Monday. “I think this is not correct for them to do,” said Gulbuddin Hillal, another candidate expected to finish far from the lead. “They are misusing the media. This is a joke on the election and on the people.” Trucks loaded with plastic tubs full of ballots are making their way to the capital, and the official vote count starts this week. It is conducted by the country’s Independent Election Commission at a tally center in Kabul. Election officials said that partial and preliminary results will be released this week but that, until then, candidates should refrain from making their own predictions. “The candidates should not confuse the public mind by posting or publishing baseless and inaccurate election results,” said Noor Mohammad Noor, an election commission spokesman.
didn’t see before,” said Carl Pike, a senior official in the Special Operations Division of the Drug Enforcement Administration. With its low price and easy portability, heroin has reached beyond New York, Chicago and other places where it has long been available. Rural areas of New England, Appalachia and the Midwest are being hit especially hard, with cities such as Portland, Maine, St. Louis and Oklahoma City struggling to cope with a new generation of addicts. Pike and other DEA officials say the spread is the result of a shrewd marketing strategy developed by Mexican traffickers. They have targeted areas where prescription pill abuse is worst, sending heroin pushers to “set up right outside the methadone clinics,” said one DEA agent. Some new heroin users begin by snorting the drug. But like addicts of synthetic painkillers who go from swallowing the pills to crushing and snorting them, they eventually turn to intravenous injection of heroin for a
more powerful high. By then, experts say, they have crossed a psychological threshold — overcoming the stigma of needle use. At the same time, they face diminishing satisfaction from prescription pills that can cost $80 each on the street and whose effects wear off after four to six hours. Those addicts are especially susceptible to high-grade heroin offered for as little as $4 a dose, but with a narcotic payload that can top anything from a pharmacy. While Colombia has historically been the biggest source of heroin sold in the United States, Mexican output has since surpassed it, DEA officials say. Together, the two countries account for more than 90 percent of the U.S. heroin supply, and nearly all of it is smuggled into this country by Mexican traffickers. As seizures of cocaine and marijuana along the border have fallen over the past several years, flows of methamphetamine and heroin have soared, federal statistics show.

farm in the country, raiding a sophisticated mountain greenhouse as big as a soccer field. That same week, soldiers and police in western Guatemala came under attack by farmers armed with clubs and gas bombs when the security personnel moved in to destroy 160 acres of poppy. Along the border with Mexico, U.S. authorities seized 2,162 kilos of heroin last year, a record amount, up from 367 kilos in 2007. The needle habit in the United States has made a strong comeback as heroin rushes into the country. Use of the drug in the United States increased 79 percent between 2007 and 2012, according to federal data, triggering a wave of overdose deaths and an “urgent and growing public health crisis,” Attorney General Eric Holder warned last month. While prescription painkillers remain more widely abused and account for far more fatal overdoses, heroin has been “moving all over the country and popping up in areas you

Are they taking on the challenge of the Santa Fe Century for the first time? Do they want to try mountain biking and are already experienced cyclists? These are important questions to ask, because the right bike for each application is very different,” said Kirk SpinDoc is also home to an indoor cycling room with classes in Santa Fe. “Let’s face it: As wonderful as Santa Fe is in terms of climate and weather, there are times when it’s not a good idea to be outside riding in subfreezing temperatures,” said Kirk.

elsewhere in the budget. The White House-backed measure would retroactively restore benefits that were cut off in late December, and maintain them through the end of May. Officials say as many as 2.7 million jobless workers have been denied assistance since the law expired late last year. If renewed, the aid would total about $256 weekly and in most cases go to men and women who have been off the job for longer than six months. Sens. Jack Reed, D-R.I., and Dean Heller, R-Nev., the bill’s leading supporters, said they were willing to consider changes in hopes of securing passage in a highly reluctant House. Heller also said he was seeking a meeting with Boehner to discuss the measure. In their letter to Boehner, seven House Republicans wrote that since the program expired, “many more people have lost benefits each week, bringing the number of long-term unemployed Americans without government assis-
tance to greater than two million.” Michael Steel, a spokesman for Boehner, noted that the speaker had said months ago “we are willing to look at extending emergency unemployment insurance as long as it includes provisions to help create more private sector jobs — but last week, Senate Democratic leaders ruled out adding any jobs measures at all.” That was an apparent reference to a refusal by Senate Democrats to permit a vote on a Republican proposal that would have allowed construction of the proposed Keystone oil pipeline from Canada and made numerous changes in the nation’s health care law. GOP lawmakers say all of the proposals would help create jobs. In remarks on the Senate floor before the vote, Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind., directly criticized Democratic leader Harry Reid for refusing to allow votes on GOP-drafted proposals to amend the measure. He called that a “black mark” in the Senate’s history.

Brittany Dixon, a supermarket cashier and college student, took her tax documents to the first place she saw and was scammed into paying $400 in fees in Birmingham, Ala. BOB MILLER/THE NEW YORK TIMES
Weak rules allow tax preparers to take big cut of refunds By Campbell Robertson The New York Times
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — In December, they begin showing up in empty storefronts in neighborhoods where empty storefronts are easy to come by. Cars with phone numbers brightly displayed on the doors roll down the streets, and signs pop up along the sidewalks promising fast money. For millions of low-income Americans, tax season means the biggest one-time influx of money all year. It also means the annual sprouting of commercial tax preparers: some of them bigname franchises, some momand-pops and some, as 20-yearold Brittany Dixon discovered this year, shockingly expensive. Dixon, a supermarket cashier and college student, took her tax documents — a W-2 form and some education expenses — to the first place she saw, in a storefront near the interstate. The preparation took about a half-hour, and Dixon was told the amount of her refund — and that she would be charged nearly $400, about a quarter of the total, in fees. She told the preparer not to file, she said, and found a service willing to do her taxes at no cost. But by then, the first preparer had already filed and taken its cut. “That was my whole car note,” Dixon said. There are as many as 1.2 million tax preparers nationwide, and reports have shown that a large majority of customers felt they were well served by their tax preparers. But with almost no regulation in the tax preparation industry and a tax code that is forbiddingly complex, the billions flowing into lowincome households this time of year, primarily in the form of the earned-income tax credit, present a ripe target for the unscrupulous. Stephen Black, director of Impact Alabama, a nonprofit based at the University of Alabama that trains college students to provide free tax help, said his volunteers routinely saw lowincome taxpayers who had paid hundreds of dollars to commercial preparers, often for inaccurate returns, and were often unaware that the prices are excessive. “Exorbitant pricing is rampant,” he said. Black and many consumer advocates have been pushing for years for more oversight of tax preparation, describing a range of problems from excessive fees to incompetence to outright fraud. On Tuesday, the Senate Finance Committee will hold a hearing on the issue, which Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., described as a priority for him as committee chairman. “I’m open to a variety of different approaches for how to do this,” said Wyden, whose home state of Oregon is one of four that have regulatory requirements for preparers. “But there should be a floor of basic consumer protection and fairness.” The tax preparation business has been bumping up against the government frequently in recent years. After prolonged efforts by federal regulators, the onceprolific refund anticipation loan, a kind of cash advance that often came with staggeringly high interest rates, has become all but extinct. And last fall, the owners of two national chains aimed at low-income customers — Mo’ Money Taxes, of Memphis, Tenn., and Instant Tax Service, of Dayton, Ohio — were permanently barred from the business after being charged with a litany of abuses, including encouraging fraudulent tax returns and charging “deceptive and unconscionable” fees.
THE NEW MEXICAN Tuesday, April 8, 2014
Violins: Researchers began study in 2010 Continued from Page A-1 “This study shows that there is no truth behind it.” Fritz, a flutist, added: “People say, ‘Why do you want to destroy the Strad?’ That is not true. I actually think it’s a beautiful instrument. I just want that young soloists can make a career without having an old instrument. You can play amazingly well without having a Strad.” Fritz and a team including a modern violin maker, Joseph Curtin, began their new-versusold research in 2010, asking 21 players at an international competition in Indiana to put on goggles that obscured their vision, and try three new violins and three old. Thirteen chose a new violin as their favorite; the least favorite of the six was a Stradivarius, researchers reported. The results struck some in the string world with the dissonance of a John Cage chord plunked into a Scarlatti sonata. Violinists complained of unrealistic testing conditions — for instance, that the violins were played in a hotel room. For the new study, published in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, many improvements were made. There were 12 instruments, six old and six new, with new ones “antiqued” to appear older. The violinists, 10 professional soloists, had more time: 75 minutes in a rehearsal room and 75 minutes in a 300-seat concert hall, both in Paris. They used their own bows, compared the test violins with their own, and could choose to have a listener provide feedback, and to have a piano accompanist. At one point, an orchestra accompanied them. Six soloists chose a new violin for a theoretical concert tour. One particular new violin, with a loud, assertive sound, was favored by four, perhaps because as soloists, they thought about projecting sound over an orchestra, researchers said. The soloists rated new violins higher, on average, for playability, articulation and projection. And their guesses of which violins were new or old were no better than chance. “The qualities that they’re looking for in the instrument really divide pretty equally in this batch of new or old,” Curtin said. Still, several violinists, including study participants, said it would be simplistic to conclude that new can equal old.
Yi-Jia Susanne Hou of Canada picked a new violin for most of the study. Still, she said she preferred old ones because they “resonate with the sound of each player” over the centuries. “I would absolutely buy a new instrument, but for a later generation. They need to be broken in.” Elmar Oliveira picked a new violin, convinced it was a Stradivarius. Although he champions modern luthiers and regularly performs on a $10,000 modern violin, he said, “the one thing that you cannot put into a new violin is that it’s been played for 300 years — these instruments change and develop.” But Giora Schmidt, another study participant, said the freshness of new violins was precisely their appeal. “Older instruments can sometimes sound tired just by the sheer number of years they’ve been played,” he said. With a new violin, “you can put your thumbprint on it immediately because it doesn’t have those layers. It’s a brand-new car. It’s zippy.” Violinists not involved in the study said it was more rigorous than the earlier research, but still did not persuade them that new and old were interchangeable. Frank Almond, the concertmaster of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, who in January was attacked by a thief who grabbed the $5 million Stradivarius he plays, said in an email that the study could not account for the months it often takes for violinists and instruments to acclimate to each other. “Clearly, there are some contemporary instruments that are of a very high quality,” wrote Almond, whose violin was recovered. “My experience is that if one of these esteemed soloists were given perhaps two months to compare a ‘new’ instrument to [for example] a great Strad or del Gesù under a variety of conditions, I don’t believe there would be much of a discussion.” Earl Carlyss, a longtime member of the Juilliard String Quartet, said subjectivity and individuality were key. “It isn’t just the instrument, it’s the player,” he said. “If you’re comfortable with an instrument, automatically it’s a plus, and the newer instruments, they respond easily.” Nonetheless, he said, “I don’t know any great soloist who has a Strad or Guarneri who is trading it in for a new instrument.”
Dems turn to Obama to boost re-election bids By Paul Kane
The Washington Post
WASHINGTON — Sen. Mark Begich, D-Alaska, has said repeatedly that he thinks President Barack Obama is wrong about a host of policies, whether on oil drilling, the military or the environment. Begich also has made it perfectly clear that he has no interest in having his fellow Democrat out to his home state, saying this year that he doesn’t “care to have him campaign for me.” But that doesn’t mean he’s not looking for the president’s help. Begich has, in fact, submitted a long wish list to the Obama administration for agency decisions that he thinks would boost his reelection chances. Other Democrats have done so, too. In New Hampshire, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen would like the administration to help expand access for state insurers to the new health-care law. In Louisiana, Sen. Mary Landrieu has lobbied for help to keep open a federal call center. In Montana, Sen. John Walsh is fighting a decision to privatize land that could be used for hunting and fishing. In the post-earmark era, using the party’s control of the federal bureaucracy to deliver local projects or delay new regulations that might stifle jobs has become a critical part of Democratic efforts to maintain control of the Senate. In close races, particularly in less populated states such as Alaska and Montana, incumbents are hoping that a few favorable agency decisions might secure the backing of key constituencies. Sometimes, though, the requests set up a difficult dynamic for the administration, which must decide between helping vulnerable Democrats and going against broader goals. Many of Begich’s requests, for example, would allow for more oil drilling at the expense of disturbing environmentally sensitive areas. In some cases, the senators get what they want; in others, not so much. Begich named four issues that the administration has delivered on for Alaska, including allowing snowmobiles in pristine locales and loosening environmental regulations on gasoline, but he can name several more that have not been resolved. “You have to bang on their heads pretty hard,” he said in an interview. “It takes a constant education.” Landrieu added of administration officials: “They’re sometimes good and sometimes not good.” Administration officials stressed that decisions are made on merits, not political calculations. Lawmakers are advised
Continued from Page A-1 Arizona passed such a law this year, but Republican Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed it under pressure and blistering criticism from major corporations and political leaders from both parties. Similar religious-protection legislation has also been introduced around the country. And eight states, Alabama, Arizona, Kansas, Michigan, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Virginia, had asked the high court to hear the case so lawmakers would have guidance in considering such measures. Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, said “at issue is the fundamental question of whether the state can pretend to be a god over the conscience.” The American Civil Liberties Union countered that regardless of personal beliefs, “every business has to play by the same rules to protect customers from discrimination in the marketplace.” An Arizona-based group, Alliance Defending Freedom, represented the Albuquerque studio. “Only unjust laws separate what people say from what they believe,” said Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel
Jordan Lorence. “The First Amendment protects our freedom to speak or not speak on any issue without fear of punishment. We had hoped the U.S. Supreme Court would use this case to affirm this basic constitutional principle; however, the court will likely have several more opportunities to do just that in other cases of ours that are working their way through the court system.” The group said it is also defending cases like those of a Washington state florist and a Colorado cake artist who refused to do work for same-sex couples, as well as a Kentucky T-shirt printer who declined to make shirts promoting a gay pride festival. Tobias Barrington Wolff, a University of Pennsylvania law professor representing the couple, said “no court in the United States has ever found that a business selling commercial services to the general public has a First Amendment right to turn away customers on a discriminatory basis. “The New Mexico Supreme Court applied settled law when it rejected the company’s argument in this case, and the Supreme Court of the United States was correct to deny certiorari review. The time had come for this case to be over, and we are very happy with the result.”
on how to make strong cases to particular agencies, officials said, but the decisions are made through a complicated process aimed at preventing an overly politicized bureaucracy. “These types of decisions are ultimately made on the merits,” said Eric Schultz, a White House spokesman. “Our legislative affairs staff work to keep lawmakers appropriately informed about agency-level decision-making, but the underlying determinations are based on substantive criteria and decided by respective policy specialists.” Nevertheless, Democratic leaders, including Sen. Charles Schumer, N.Y., have reminded senior White House officials of the importance of some requests, senior congressional aides said. They want Democrats to at least be in position to claim credit if the agencies side with an embattled incumbent. Landrieu scored a victory last week when the Department of Health and Human Services favored keeping open a call center run by General Dynamics in Bogalusa, La. More than 600 workers have been at the center helping people sign up for coverage under the new health-care law, with a contract set to expire April 25. “They had some options to which ones the contractor could close. We said, ‘Heck, why close the one in Louisiana?’ ” Landrieu said of her lobbying effort. On Wednesday, the call center was spared. Health and Human Services officials said the decision was made by General Dynamics, with workers continuing to
handle calls for those signing up on the exchange after the deadline for obtaining coverage. Fifteen other sites will remain open, but at largely reduced staff levels. White House officials noted that the decision came amid bipartisan requests from the state’s congressional delegation to keep the center open. Landrieu remains at odds with the administration on another key local issue, the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed rule regulating wetlands under the Clean Water Act. Landrieu, the new chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, blasted the proposal to hinder oil-drilling capacity off her state’s coastal waters. She is working with Senate Republicans to block the measure. Shaheen, a former governor, said she has seen this administration at its best and worst on handling her requests. In 2011 a budget standoff left a newly built federal prison in northern New Hampshire shuttered, without any of the more than projected 300 employees on the job. She kept working with the Federal Bureau of Prisons and eventually got a commitment for full funding, but hiring has lagged. In early 2009, Shaheen began a fiveyear battle with the administration over a job center in Manchester for at-risk youths. The Labor Department delayed approval of building the center — meant to help 150 low-income youths a year enter the workforce — because of demands that unionized workers build it. “There were a lot of challenges working with the Department of Labor,” Shaheen said. The issue was resolved late last year and developers broke ground, but the job center will not open until the summer of 2015, long after the Granite State’s voters will have decided whether to reelect Shaheen. The senator is also seeking help from Health and Human Services to alter standards for insurance companies to participate in her state’s exchange under the Affordable Care Act. Just one insurance company in New Hampshire participated and left some corners of the state with no health facilities inside Affordable Care Act coverage. No decision is likely until late this year, congressional aides said. No senator may be as dependent on the federal bureaucracy decisions as Begich, whose vast frontier state depends on dozens of agencies to regulate fisheries, oil production, tribes, national parks and environmentally sensitive areas.
Coll: Epitomized ‘live and let live’ view Continued from Page A-1
Gay bias: Religiousbased measures being introduced around U.S.
In the post-earmark era, using the party’s control of the federal bureaucracy to deliver local projects or delay new regulations that might stifle jobs has become a critical part of Democratic efforts to maintain control of the Senate.
Current House Speaker Kenny Martinez, D-Grants, pointed out that there are two photos of Coll on the walls of the first floor of the Capitol. In one, taken during Coll’s GOP years, he was sporting a crew cut. The other, from Coll’s Democratic years, shows him with his “woolly hair,” Martinez said. Coll epitomized the Western, New Mexican “live and let live” point of view, Martinez said. Martinez said he’s not much of a rafter but once encountered Coll on a riverrafting trip. “He was in this one-man raft, sitting in this chair attached to the raft,” Martinez said. Coll passed him, waved and did a “beautiful” 360-degree turn, he said. Rep. Luciano “Lucky” Varela, D-Santa Fe, described Coll as a mentor. He recalled a health care bill that he and Coll introduced, a bill that would have established a single-payer health insur-
ance system in the state. It was more like dropping a bomb than dropping a bill, Varela said. “Everything came to a halt in the session,” he said. Rep. Gail Chasey, D-Albuquerque, said Coll was “my ally before he was my friend.” They shared closely similar views on issues such as education, civil rights, health care and the death penalty, she said. Sometimes when she wasn’t sure how to vote on a bill, Chasey said, she’d look up at the vote board in the House Chamber to see how Coll was voting. She recalled Coll discussing at a Democratic caucus a bill that Democrats didn’t like that was introduced by a Republican legislator. “He can introduce the bill and we can misunderstand it at our leisure,” Coll said, according to Chasey. Sen. Peter Wirth, D-Santa Fe, won Coll’s old House seat in 2004 after convincing Coll to endorse him. Wirth, a
lawyer, said he had looked forward to being on the House Judiciary Committee, but Coll convinced him he’d get more done on the House Appropriations and Finance Committee. Coll told him: “The best ideas in the world would go nowhere without money,” Wirth said. Wirth said a few years ago Coll gave him his collection of political buttons from past campaigns. Both Wirth and Varela were wearing old Coll buttons with the message “Viva Max.” Massey said one of Coll’s pieces of advice about rafting has always stuck with him. “ ‘In trying to pick a line of travel,’ he said, ‘look where the current wants to take you and figure out how to make it better,’ ” Massey said. “In all the years and rivers that have followed, that advice has resonated as a way to navigate a river as well as life.”
Chickens: Debate over hens began in 2011 Continued from Page A-1 a reaction on her blog, Eldorado Gadfly, saying, “We have prevailed!” She wrote, “This ruling has not only secured our Covenant’s Pets Clause, but, the Covenants of all residential subdivisions in the state and across the country. It is a very important ruling.” Action Eldorado, a group formed to support the ECIA when the debate over hens as pets began in 2011, said by email, “We are grateful that the ECIA Board took legal action to define and preserve our Protective Covenants in spite of vocal and written assaults on their motives and integrity by a minority of Eldorado lot owners.” Deligans said that Macaron seemed to endorse the “urban myth” that chickens are a “gateway” animal and what chicken owners really want is to add cows, pigs, goats and other animals to backyard
menageries. She said the defendants had owned chickens for many years and were “not moving on to something else.” But in his order, the judge said the defendants’ interpretation of the covenant permitting “recognized household pets” would “open the door to an unlimited multitude of different kinds of creatures being kept inside and outside of homes [in Eldorado] without regulation or control under the covenants … leaving other homeowners without recourse.” Deligans said that the defendants and dozens of other residents not named in the lawsuit have long kept chickens, usually behind walls or in fenced areas, and the ECIA has granted variances to some of them. Yet the judge wrote, “There has been no evidence presented that ECIA has ever recognized chickens as household pets.” One of the main arguments the chicken owners made in their defense
was that the New Mexico Supreme Court has held that that when the language of a restrictive covenant is ambiguous or unclear, the issue must be resolved “in favor of the free enjoyment of the property and against restrictions.” But the judge here said this rule cannot be applied to “defeat the obvious purpose of the restrictions” and that the intent of the developer from the beginning was that the covenants were “restrictive in nature and intended a controlled environment.” The order says both sides must cover their own costs and fees. The ECIA has spent more than $50,000 on the case; legal fees for the defendants amount to about $22,000 so far. Defendants raised the money through music events and yard sales and are seeking funding for their appeal at gofundme.com/save-ourpet-hens.

Police escort for caravan costs taxpayers $4,605 12 officers accompanied group of wealthy car enthusiasts last month By Daniel J. Chacón
The New Mexican
group of high rollers who passed through Santa Fe in expensive cars last month avoided the normal hassles of traffic, courtesy of taxpayers. The Santa Fe Police Department assigned a dozen law-enforcement officers, including a captain and a lieutenant, to escort the caravan of wealthy car enthusiasts through traffic March 28. The 10-hour traffic escort cost $4,605, including more than $2,000 in overtime pay, according to documents obtained under an open-records request. The documents don’t include the cost of fuel for the police vehicles, which were filled up before the start of the escort. “The Santa Fe Police Department Support Operations Division will ensure that the safety of the public is first and that all traffic laws are followed,” according to an operations plan for the traffic escort. “The Support Operations Division will provide a safe escort with the safety of the community in mind,” the plan states. Organizers of the luxury motoring tour, dubbed “The Jewel that is the U.S.A,” requested the traffic escort, said city spokeswoman Jodi McGinnis Porter, who defended the city’s decision to provide it. “The public safety provided by the City for this escort prevented any incidents from occurring, promoted the City of Santa Fe to very high profile individuals and leaders from all over the world who spent two days, lodging, dining and shopping in our city,” she said Monday in an email. The cars, just like members of the group, came from different parts of the world, including Hong Kong, Switzerland, Sweden, Australia and New York City. The cars, some of which had the steering wheel on the right-hand side, included a 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster, a couple of Aston Martins, several Bentleys and four Rolls-Royce Phantoms. “These are cars ranging in year from 1950 to 2013 — Rolls-Royces, Aston Martins,
In brief Former Manderfield school vandalized The owner of the former Manderfield Elementary School property at 1150 Canyon Road is the latest victim of copper thieves. Clare Maraist, who bought the property in January from the Santa Fe school district, reported to police on Friday that someone had kicked in a basement door at the long-vacant school building next to Cristo Rey Church and ripped out about 100 feet of copper pipe. Removal of the pipe caused the entire basement to flood, destroying a wall, said a police report, which listed the incident as a commercial burglary and larceny over $10,000. Maraist paid about $960,000 for the school, which first opened in the late 1920s but has been unused in recent years. Though Maraist initially planned

Bentleys — and drivers who this would be the first time they were driving in the USA,” McGinnis Porter said. “So yes, I do think that public safety would’ve been the biggest concern dealing with foreign drivers and foreign cars.” The group, which included heiress and actress Patty Hearst, spent two nights at the Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado Santa Fe, starting March 27. The next day, on March 28, police escorted the group from the Four Seasons to Madrid, Eaves Movie Ranch, Seret and Sons in downtown Santa Fe and the Camel Rock gas station before ending the escort back at the hotel at about 6 p.m., according to the operations plan. “A total number of 12 personnel and along with their department issued vehicles was used to safely escort the package of 22 vehicles to various destinations throughout Santa Fe City and County,” the plan states. “One [public safety aide] was on overtime for ten hours, followed by all additional Santa

Two Santa Fe County sheriff’s deputies also participated in the escort, but only for about an hour. “We actually had a crazy week of training that week, so we were only able to assist with the first leg,” said Sgt. Diego Lucero, commander of the sheriff’s Community Support Services Division. “Basically, we assisted from the Rancho Encantado resort in Tesuque to the town of Madrid. That was our only involvement due to other obligations.” The sheriff’s office “probably” would’ve provided more deputies to assist with the traffic escort, but the city’s request was made only the day before, Lucero said. Such requests are typically made three to four days in advance “at a minimum,” he said. Contact Daniel J. Chacón at 986-3089 or email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter @danieljchacon.
Video captures chase, shooting of wrong-way driver on I-25 By Chris Quintana The New Mexican
Recently released police video shows that a man from upstate New York State kept trying to flee from New Mexico state police in his white minivan even after leading them on an 8-minute chase in the wrong direction on Interstate 25 and flipping his van just south of Las Vegas, N.M. Albert Urban, 72, of Hamburg, N.Y., only stopped after state police Officer Jonathan Wright shot Urban in the arm as he drove toward the officer, the police dashboard camera footage shows. on tHe weB The footage and reports detailing the Jan. 4 inciu For dashboard dent, which were recently camera video of the chase, go to www. obtained by The New Mexican, paint the clearest picture santafenewmexi can.com. yet of the chase. Richard Flores, district attorney in San Miguel County, announced last week that he had cleared Wright of criminal charges. Flores also said that he would not press criminal charges against Urban due to the man’s poor mental health. The incident began when state police received reports of a driver traveling north in the southbound lanes just south of Las Vegas. The video starts with officers Jonathan Wright and Raymond Montoya getting into a police cruiser and zooming at speeds as high as 129 mph on I-25 to reach the minivan. Wright later told an investigating officer multiple times that he feared Urban would cause a crash and seriously injure or kill another motorist. About 7 minutes into the footage, the viewer first sees Urban’s vehicle whiz past Wright’s cruiser. The officer immediately makes a U-turn and starts the 8-minute chase. Wright twice uses a loud speaker to demand that Urban pull over. But if Urban hears the commands, he doesn’t obey. The video clearly shows northbound drivers passing the chase or pulling to the shoulder. Documents state that officers also tried to stop Urban’s vehicle by using spike strips. The first attempt failed, but the second was more successful and blew out Urban’s right front tire. After the second spike strip, Wright pulls alongside Urban and nudges the van, sending it off the road. Dashboard camera footage from another officer’s car shows that Urban tried to correct the van’s direction, but the vehicle rolled and came to a temporary stop. Video then shows the two officers get out of their car and approach the van. Wright wrote in his report that he thought the vehicle would be disabled after it rolled. Instead, Urban hit the gas and drove the van in the officers’ general direction, prompting Wright to fire four shots at the 72-year-old man. One hit the man’s arm, and that bullet, multiple reports and video indicate, finally stopped Urban. Wright later told investigating officers that he fired because “he feared that being struck by the van would result in death or great bodily harm.” Urban was treated on the scene for his injuries, and emergency responders ultimately transported him via helicopter to University Hospital in Albuquerque. Officer Mark Alsfeld wrote in his report that when he interviewed Urban in the hospital, he “rambled” and couldn’t answer questions. Alsfeld also wrote that Urban thought he was in New York during the interviews and told the officer that his “mind don’t work as good as it used to.” Alsfeld also interviewed family members and friends of Urban in New York, who indicated Urban had not been taking his medication. No one could explain why Urban was in New Mexico, but multiple people told Alsfeld that Urban had family in Arizona. Alsfeld wrote that Urban’s brother wasn’t surprised by the incident. His brother also told Alsfeld that he tried to stop him from traveling, but Urban refused. “In my mind, honestly, I could totally see this happening,” the brother told Alsfeld. Urban underwent a mental evaluation at the New Mexico Behavioral Health Institute, and, according to a release from Flores, the examination found that Urban had been suffering from “a cognitive disorder.” The same release stated that Urban would be released to his family in New York.
Janitor asked to leave amid rape lawsuit Former co-worker claims man assaulted her at Capital High School By Phaedra Haywood The New Mexican
Santa Fe Public Schools has asked that a janitor who worked at Capital High School not work on school property until a lawsuit accusing him of sexually assaulting a co-worker is resolved. A female janitor who worked with the man at Capital High School between 2011 and 2013 filed a complaint against her then employers — Maintenance Service Systems Inc. and Atlas Resources Inc. — in February claiming the man raped and sexually harassed her on school property and that supervisors failed to address the problem, choosing instead to transfer her to another school. The complaint, filed in state Dis-

trict Court on Feb. 17, asks for unspecified actual and punitive damages. Maintenance Service Systems filed an answer to the complaint April 1 denying the allegations. Atlas Resources Inc. filed a motion to dismiss the complaint as it pertains to the accused janitor on April 2, arguing that the company shouldn’t bear any responsibility for the man’s actions because it only acts as an “administrative employer” of the janitors while Maintenance Service Systems is the “work-site employer” that hires, fires, trains and supervises the employees. Santa Fe Public Schools general counsel Geno Zamora said Monday that Maintenance Service Systems “remains a contractor” with the school district, but when district personnel learned of the complaint last week, a district representative asked the firm to reassign the accused man “to a site outside of school district property during the pendency of
the litigation.” “We’ve have been assured that he will be reassigned prior to the conclusion of spring break,” Zamora said in an email Monday. Students and school staff are scheduled to return April 14. The woman’s complaint says she reported the alleged sexual assault to the Santa Fe Police Department on March 5, 2013. But no charges have been filed against the man. Santa Fe Police Department spokeswoman Celina Westervelt confirmed that the woman made a report and that detectives were investigating one count of alleged sexual penetration and two possible counts of criminal sexual contact in the case. But Westervelt said she couldn’t comment further because the investigation is ongoing. Contact Phaedra Haywood at 986-3068 or phaywood@ sfnewmexican.com.

Contamination found in N.M. rivers The Associated Press
FARMINGTON— Bacteria from human waste may be entering several northwestern New Mexico rivers from septic systems or illegal dumping, according to unexpected preliminary results from an environmental group’s testing. The San Juan Watershed Group collected the samples in 2013 in the Animas, La Plata and San Juan rivers in Colorado and in New Mexico, the Farmington Daily Times reported. Tests for E. coli in water in Colorado met state standards, but tests conducted at New
Mexico sites in the Farmington area were positive for human bacteria found in feces. Watershed group coordinator David Tomko said that indicates contamination is occurring downstream in New Mexico. “It is startling. It is unexpected,” Tomko said. “But let’s see if there’s another explanation.” The Animas and La Plata rivers are tributaries of the San Juan, which is a tributary of the Colorado River. Farmington’s wastewater treatment plant is the only nearby location to legally discharge sewage, but Tomko said businesses could be dumping elsewhere.
Tomko said the study’s preliminary findings carry serious implications. Seven San Juan County water systems pull drinking water from one of the three contaminated rivers, according to data compiled by Joe Martinez III, a manager for the drinking water bureau of the state Environment Department. Mike Stark, operations officer for San Juan County, said the preliminary results “would be a concern for us.” Stark said county officials are aware illegal septic dumping occurs in the county, and they also know some septic systems are aging and possibly leaking. However, the county is large
and solutions are expensive, he said. In 2010, pipeline workers discovered 20 trailers abandoned in a canyon near the Animas River. The makeshift septic systems contaminated the soil, Stark said. The trailers were demolished and the land cleaned. Many other septic systems have been illegally and precariously hooked into main sewage lines, he said. County Executive Officer Kim Carpenter said one of the county’s biggest goals is getting residents off septic systems to reduce river pollution. “These are some serious problems that we have,” he said.
APD: Many want federal officials to take over Continued from Page A-7 “We have now become the embarrassment of the nation, if not the entire world,” said Ralph Arellanes, director of the League of United Latin American Citizens’ New Mexico chapter and a member of the city’s police oversight task force. “We are outraged by this, and our fight against this will only grow louder and more united with larger numbers until we see change,” Arellanes told city councilors. With the council chamber full, an overflow crowd watched a live stream of the meeting on large monitors outside. As the councilors listened to a steady stream of speakers, a mock coffin sat at the front of the room. The crowd remained peaceful, but council President Ken Sanchez acknowledged the frustration. “We know emotions are high,” he said. The U.S. Department of Justice, which has been investigating Albuquerque police for more than a year, said agency officials would meet with police, city leaders and others to discuss the findings after making a formal announcement on its findings Thursday. The recent unrest in the city follows a string of 37 police shootings since 2010, 23 of them fatal, including the March 16 shooting of Boyd. During an hourslong standoff, Boyd
Officials look to extend firing ban
The Santa Fe National Forest is proposing a 10-year extension of a shooting ban along the eastern boundary of the Caja del Rio, in order to protect lives and property of people who live adjacent to the forest boundary west of Santa Fe. The Santa Fe National Forest wants the area, which has been closed to the shooting of firearms since 2001, to remain off limits to shooters until 2024 because of increased development on private land near the forest boundary, a news release states. Since 2001, Forest Service officials have enforced a closure order on an annual basis, but a long-term order would require a formal process known as an environmental assessment, which includes public input. The public can review the proposal on the federal agency’s website and email comments to firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments also may be brought or mailed to the Española Ranger District, 1710 N. Riverside Drive in Española, or faxed to 753-9411. Comments must be submitted or postmarked by April 16 to Lynn Bjorklund.
Panel endorses police HQ upgrade A City Council committee Monday signed off on a $72,000 change to a two-story building under construction next to Santa Fe police headquarters.

claimed he was a government agent and threatened to kill officers. An officer’s helmet camera video showed Boyd gathering his belongings from a campsite before officers shot him. He later died at a hospital. The FBI has opened a criminal investigation into that shooting. Many at Monday’s meeting called for federal officials to take over the police department, demanded more transparency and asked that recommendations by an 11-member task provide additional” fire-rated materials, primarily windows, said David Pfeifer, the city’s Facilities Division director. The change order is the second for the project. On March 27, City Manager Brian Snyder approved a $36,272 change order “for remodeling in the conference room, including HVAC changes, step footing at southeast wall to match existing adjacent footing and polished concrete floors,” according to city documents. Only contracts over $50,000 require council approval, though there are exceptions. The city is expanding police headquarters to give employees more room. The expansion also will allow the department to create a dedicated computer forensics lab. The New Mexican

force that spent months examining the Police Oversight Commission be implemented rather than shelved by city officials. Sanchez and other council members are weighing future legislation to address police oversight and whether the council should have authority over hiring the police chief or creating a commission that would oversee daily operations within the department. “We need to make some dramatic changes,” Sanchez told
the Albuquerque Journal before Monday’s meeting. “We’re confronting a crisis situation at this time.” Councilman Brad Winter said councilors are frustrated and are looking at what they can do to fix the problem. Since the council has limited authority over police matters due to the City Charter, Sanchez said proposals to change the charter may come forward. Any amendments would have to be approved by voters.

Albuquerque gets new transit center ALBUQUERQUE — Northwest Albuquerque has a new transit center. Mayor Richard Berry and other offi-
cials on Monday afternoon officially opened the Montaño Transit Center at 180 Montaño Road NW. The center will serve the city’s bus system and New Mexico Rail Runner Express passengers. It also will be the first stop for the Rail Runner as trains head north out of downtown Albuquerque toward Santa Fe. City officials say the new center
Forecast predicts low water supply for New Mexico By Staci Matlock The New Mexican
The spring water supply picture for New Mexico remains grim despite the few inches of snow that a recent storm deposited in the state’s northern mountains, according to an April 1 forecast. Mountain snowpacks in the state remain well below normal, and that doesn’t bode well for the state’s rivers and reservoirs that rely heavily on the spring runoff, according to the latest water-supply forecast from the National Weather Service and Natural Resources Conservation Service. “This is the fourth winter in a row with disappointing mountain snowpack and statewide precipitation across New Mexico,” according to a statement released by Chuck Jones of the National Weather Service in Albuquerque and the state’s snow surveyor, Wayne Sleep. The lake level at Elephant Butte Reservoir is higher than last year — one small bit of good news for anglers and boaters. The massive reservoir on the Rio Grande in Southern New Mexico is less than a fourth full, but at 361,000 acre-feet, there’s still plenty of water for recreation. Reservoirs along the Pecos River were helped by heavy rains in September. But, “it is highly unlikely we will see any improvement in statewide reservoir storage levels this year, barring another exceptional rain event,” the April 1 report said. “Water managers need to be planning on well-below average runoff and significantly lower than normal reservoir storage for the most part.” The most recent storm added 5 inches of snow to a telemetry station near the Santa Fe ski basin, bringing the base to 40 inches. But snow surveyors calculate the extra snow won’t translate into much water when it melts this spring. Forecasters think only about 230,000 acre-feet of water will flow past the Otowi Bridge on the Rio Grande between March and July. The average amount that passes the gauge, based on records from 1981 to 2010, is 720,000 acre-feet. Rio Grande river flows into Elephant Butte are forecast at 8 percent of normal. Wildfire risks are expected to increase as the weather trends warmer and drier over the next few days, according to forecasters. Contact Staci Matlock at 986-3055 or smatlock@sfnewmexican. com.

Think tank ranks N.M. tax burden 37th A national report ranks New Mexico
in 2010, 8.8 percent in 2009 and 9.4 percent in 2008. New Mexico ranked 40th in 2010. New York had the highest tax burden at 12.6 percent and Wyoming was the lowest at 6.9 percent. The study measures taxes paid by individuals and businesses in their home states and directly or indirectly in other states.
37th in the country for combined state and local taxes paid by its residents. The conservative-leaning Tax Foundation said in a study released last week that New Mexicans paid 8.6 percent of their per-capita income in taxes to state and local governments in the 2011 fiscal year. That’s lower than the national average of 9.8 percent. The tax burden of New Mexicans has been dropping — from 8.7 percent

Our Web readers speak out:
Cab driver alleges excessive force during traffic stop, March 31 Jesus man, something ain’t right with cops and “ humans in New Mexico right now. Dawn [Bourgeois]
is a wonderful human being and this cop apparently has an issue or two. I hope he gets some justice his way and further training on how to not turn a routine traffic stop into violence. … ” S.R.
A professional driver who disregards markers for “ a train crossing provides police every reason to issue
a citation. The boxes are there because trains can appear after a driver stops near the tracks. Traffic stopped behind the offending vehicle can prevent a car from backing up once a train appears. The fact that no train was there at the time is irrelevant. Can school bus drivers stop on train tracks simply because they know the train schedule? … ” R.F.
She should have stayed in her vehicle and followed “ orders. Stop making excuses for bad behavior and grow up already. It’s bad enough cops are walking a thin line; don’t make it worse by acting the fool.” A.P. Our View: Poop patrol on the trails, April 1 If I am hiking with my dog and he poops in the “ inward part of the hike, I pick up the poop in a bag.
Put it on the side of the trail and pick it up on the way out. He usually does it pretty quickly after we get out of the car and who wants to carry a bag of dog feces for 5 miles? And yes, I had the exact thought. I think dog poo, probably biodegrades faster than paper, with ink on it.” J.J.
OPINIONS E-XTRA LOOKING IN: ELLEN BERNSTEIN
What’s the matter with unions? I f you haven’t heard by now, Gov. Susana Martinez is trying to prevent public sector unions from collecting membership dues. The governor’s conversation may be about dues, but the deeper context is about something much greater: the existence of unions, the right to organize and workplace democracy. Gov. Martinez said, “I oppose forcing the state to collect union dues for big labor.” Big labor? The governor is trying to apply a pejorative label onto democratic institutions committed to improving compensation, working conditions and benefits for their members and, in turn, for all workers. Because we have unions, we have child labor laws, sick leave, social security, worker’s comp and so much more. The governor extends her misguided label to the Albuquerque Teachers Federation because we have opposed her corporate reform agenda for our schools and supported real education reform designed to change teaching and learning for the better. For example, a well-thought out teacher evaluation bill (Senate Bill 588 in 2013) — supported by teachers and passed overwhelmingly by the legislature, was vetoed by the governor. The governor wants to eliminate democratic unions, like the ATF, so our unified voice for progress will be silenced. Why? Because we are fighting her poorly designed, unilaterally imposed teacher evaluation system that is heavily weighted
toward testing children. We, not her, are the ones witnessing our students cry from having to take one more high-stress standardized test. She wants to silence our union and our voice, but we will not be silenced. Ellen Trying to scare the Bernstein public with worn-out labels like “union boss” won’t work. The public knows that the teachers’ union is made up of professionals who taught you how to read, took care of you when you were sick at school, supported you in times of crisis, and gave you tools for success. Most New Mexicans will reject the governor’s deceptive tag, and apply their own terms to our union members: “teacher,” “librarian,” “nurse,” “social worker,” “counselor” or “therapist.” Why does the governor claim my union is against reform? My union believes that public schools belong to all of us: students, parents, community members, educators and school staff. And, these groups who are closest to students and who have the most expertise about the education process, should have a voice in shaping policy and practice. Top-down pseudo reforms from entrepreneurs and philanthropists rarely, if ever, focus on the actual needs of teachers and students. This latest salvo about dues collecting
is designed as an attempt by the governor to weaken the largest union in our state, the teachers’ union, so she can unilaterally force her “reform” agenda without listening to anyone except, perhaps, her corporate sponsors. The governor says, “Bring it on.” When she says that I don’t think she means, “bring on the public discourse” or “bring on a balanced debate.” I believe she means, bring on the fight for the future of our public education system and all public services. I believe she means bring on the fight to destroy unions that protect workers’ rights. Unions welcome the public debate on the role of government in shaping the future of public education. But, instead of relying on the attack ad-filled local media to tell you what you should think, talk directly with the public employee-union member who maintains our parks, protect our streets, fight fires, or ensures our drinking water is safe. Find out what they believe about the direction of our state. And, speak with a teacher, counselor, nurse or educational assistant about how to make our schools better. You entrust your children to these professionals (and union members) every day. I believe you will find common ground with them — more than with those who write and collect six-figure campaign checks. Ellen Bernstein is president of the Albuquerque Teachers Federation.
Maybe hikers should be required to pick up all “ the poop they encounter out on our trails. Dog poop, coyote poop, rabbit poop, deer poop, elk poop, cow poop, horse poop, bear poop, hobo poop. Come on people, pick it all up and pack it out, it’s the right thing to do.” P.K.
Costco considers south-side store, April 2 Bring it on, Costco! You’ll have my business, which “ I’d love to take away from Sam’s. Santa Fe needs a
quality wholesale club, [and] Albertsons, Smith’s and Whole Foods could also use the competition. The end result will be a positive for Santa Fe. Jobs, quality merchandise and savings.” D.J.
Bring it on! People will have a choice where to “ work and where to shop. From what I’ve heard,
they do pay better and treat their employees more fairly than Sam’s or Wal-Mart. Now if we could just get someone to consider building right inside the Santa FeCcounty line, say [Interstate 25 at 290? The county could get business from the folks in the Lamy, Eldorado, El Gancho, Pecos areas and beyond.” J.B.
No COSTCO! We don’t need it, we don’t want it. “ We are willing to drive to Albuquerque if we need to save 60 cents on a 12 pack of toilet paper. Enough already!” G.L.
Costco is a great store. Glad they are considering “ Santa Fe!” C.M. Police: Prop gun causes scare at Cowgirl BBQ, April 3 Wow, and Santa Fe police didn’t shoot and kill him “ because he had a gun? APD, please take note.” A.R. Not cool, having a gun pointed at you. And even “ after ﬁnding out it’s fake, the adrenaline rush is not welcome or fun. Thanks to the police for getting there in time to arrest him and charge [him].” P.S.
Tecolote searches for new home following eviction, April 5 Like they say, location is everything. I love the “ Tecolote Cafe, but moving to the Luna District would
be a disaster. The lack of parking will really kill their business. … As much as I would miss them, I would much rather them close for a couple months and ﬁnd a location that will best suit everyone, than for them to make a hasty decision and end up in a location that will ultimately force them to close their doors for good.” A.L.
How sad that they have been at that location for “ that long and still have a landlord … too bad they
didn’t try to buy the building years ago instead of paying and paying someone else and now be basically homeless. I agree that the Luna District is awful as far as parking. I went there once and that was enough for me.” A.M.

So why do all Mexicans use ‘¿Mande?’ Dear Mexican: Even though throughout the years since I came to the U.S. 20 years ago I have seen it happening with less frequency, the use by Mexicans of the expression ¿Mande? (“Command me”) has always struck me. I personally see it as a symbolic legacy of submission probably originating from Gustavo the times of the Spanish Arellano conquistadores. Are you ¡Ask a Mexican! aware of any other meaning? What it’s interesting to me is that I’ve heard this expression coming more often from the socalled pochos than from Mexican immigrants. Che Argentina Dear reader: Out of all the folk etymologies that plague Mexican Spanish — like people thinking gringo comes from Mexicans making fun of the green coats of invading gabachos, or that the phonological similarity of Michigan and Michoacán is proof that the Aztecs came from the Midwest — none is more laughable than insisting the Mexican propensity to use ¿Mande? (“Excuse me?”) is a reflection on the perpetual Mexican inferiority complex. Yes, ¿Mande? is a legacy of colonialism — Cortés used the term in his letters — but so what? So is the word tortilla, and the corrido. All Latin American cultures keep parts of the Conquest alive in their regional Spanish, but there is no historical evidence that conquistadors in Mexico demanded that their Indian or mestizo servants use the formal ¿Mande? instead of the informal ¿Que? or ¿Cómo? or ¿Perdón? (words that Mexicans also use, by the way) because of their inferior state. Mexican Spanish merely follows Spanish pronoun rules — imagine that!

Time to be honest about the state of mental health
he recent shooting of a homeless and mentally ill camper by the Albuquerque police is a reminder of the failure of the state’s behavioral health system, which leaves the fate of our most vulnerable relatives, friends and neighbors largely in the hands of law enforcement and the penal system. Because of the lack of appropriate resources in our communities, jails and prisons now function as our state’s primary psychiatric facilities. Depending on the study, estimates of the percentage of prisoners with severe psychiatric disorders range from 7 percent to 16 percent nationally. The Corrections Department recently reported even higher figures in New Mexico, with 25 percent of total prisoners needing treatment for serious mental illness on any given day. A 2012 Public Defender Department report states that of those persons shot by Albuquerque Police Department personnel over the two previous years, nearly 75 percent suffered from mental illness. In the 2013 legislative session, the Legislature passed a bill sponsored by Rep. Rick Miera, D-Bernalillo, to establish community engagement teams under the auspices of the Department of Health, which runs the state’s only psychiatric hospital, to work with the homeless that are mentally ill as a measure to prevent standoffs like the one that took place in Albuquerque. Gov. Susana Martinez vetoed this legislation because she wanted the Human Services Department and the Interagency Behavioral Health Purchasing Collaborative — the same folks that dismantled the behavioral health system in communities throughout the state last June — to own this program. In her message explaining her veto, Martinez stated that community engagement teams “have merit” and that she was directing the department “to develop draft guidelines for the implementation and use of these teams.” To date,
Human Services has not published any guidelines, and not even one community engagement team pilot project is in place. After a visit to New Mexico last fall, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services advised the director of the state’s Medical Assistance Division that 23 percent fewer consumers are receiving behavioral health services since the department’s transition of services to Arizona agencies after an audit of 15 New Mexico agencies and referral of those providers to the attorney general for investigation. The Martinez administration dismissed this finding as “simply inaccurate.” Recently, State Auditor Hector Balderas announced that his office found mismanagement in Human Service’s handling of the agency audit, the referrals and its payments to the Arizona providers. The Martinez administration’s response was that the state auditor’s report was “fraught with misstatements and inaccuracies.” It’s time to be honest about the even greater mental health role that has been shifted to law enforcement under this administration’s dismantling of already fragile community behavioral health resources. It’s time for the administration to listen to the families of the severely mentally ill who want better training for police officers and, most importantly, someone else to call when a loved one has deteriorated to the point of being a danger to self or others. In addition, it’s time for New Mexicans to hold the current administration accountable not only for its failure to improve the state’s behavioral health system, but also for its failure to own up to the missteps of the department. This was written by Senate President Pro Tem Mary Kay Papen (D-Doña Ana County) and Patsy Romero, president of National Alliance of Mental Illness-New Mexico.

COMMENTARY: FRED HIATT
Cold War is real — look at Hong Kong WASHINGTON n the global war of ideology that President Barack Obama says is not happening, Hong Kong is on the front lines. Democracy in Hong Kong is increasingly squeezed by the autocrats of Beijing. It is a fight of ideas and power, but also of flesh and blood: Just ask truth-telling newspaper editor Kevin Lau Chun-to, who was savagely assaulted and nearly killed in February in what he believes was an attack on his journalism. Two of the most stalwart fighters on the side of democracy were in Washington last week, hoping for moral support. They made for an odd couple, though each has spent more than 40 years in the struggle: one is a consummate insider and the other has always battled from the outside. The latter, lawyer Martin Lee, fought the British for more autonomy when they ruled Hong Kong. Since the British left in 1997, he has pressed Beijing to keep its word to allow Hong Kong to preserve its separate system of governance within China — the formula known as “one country, two systems.” Anson Chan, by contrast, rose through the prestigious Hong Kong civil service to the top appointed position of chief secretary, resigning in 2001 when she felt the chief executive was allowing Beijing to chip away at Hong Kong’s core values: rule of law, a level playing field and freedom of press, speech and association. Since then, she said, democracy’s hold has grown more precarious — “I’m quite frankly surprised at the rate of deterioration,” she said during a visit to The Washington Post — and she is hoping the United States will speak out. Will it? Obama recently told an audience in Brussels that, though the future belongs to those who support freedom and democracy, “those rules are not self-executing” and “the contest of ideas continues for your generation.” Yet he also insisted that

T there is no new Cold War. “After all,” he said, “unlike the Soviet Union, Russia leads no bloc of nations, no global ideology.” It’s true that “anti-freedom” doesn’t sound like an ideology to most Americans. The tyrants who hung on after the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 at first pretended to no rationale beyond, well, hanging on. But the dictators of Russia and China today are making a bid for legitimacy as well as survival. They present themselves as guarantors of stability, warding off the confusion and insecurity that follow democratic uprisings. They boast of investing in the future — in highways and fast trains — in ways that pandering elected officials in India or the United States cannot manage. They put their systems forward as an antidote to the empty materialism of capitalist democracies — the pornography, the hedonism, the lack of respect for elders and religious leaders. They claim to stand for community, spirituality and tradition. No doubt ex-KGB agent Vladimir Putin came to his
philosophy rather late, after democratic protests in 2011 began to undermine his kleptocratic rule. Similarly, the Communist Party barons in Beijing grew especially attuned to the evils of a free press when it began reporting on their own secreted billions. But whether the leaders believe in their stew of xenophobia, phony egalitarianism and traditional (Russian Orthodox or Confucian) values hardly matters. They are fighting a new Cold War against democracy, and the other side is only intermittently on the field. And Russia and China fight with particular intensity on or near their home turf. Putin cannot abide democracy in Ukraine because the example to Ukraine’s Slavic brothers next door would present a mortal threat. Chinese leaders know that the values that have made Hong Kong successful — transparency, accountability — are precisely what middle-class Chinese are beginning to clamor for at home. So in 2017, when Hong Kong is finally supposed to freely elect its chief executive, democracy advocates
fear that Communist leaders will find a way to control the field of candidates — to allow a choice between “Puppet A or Puppet B,” as Lee told me. Meanwhile press freedom shrinks, not only because of physical attacks such as those on Lau but also as businesses feel pressure not to advertise in independent media. Lee and Chan want a more open political process. Chan said it would produce a chief executive who would still want to get along with the mainland but who also would stand up for democratic values. She said that how much the United States and other nations seem to care will shape Beijing’s approach to the 2017 election rules. “Their minds are not made up,” she said. “They are always watching what the rest of the world does.” “We are not asking for a lot,” Lee added. “We are not asking you to send armies. Just say, ‘Please, you promised to give Hong Kong democracy, please keep your promise.’ This is make or break for us.” Fred Hiatt is The Washington Post’s editorial page editor.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Repeated warnings: State of nation is fragile
he recent Supreme Court decision on campaign finance provides another sobering reminder that things go bitter with Koch. These lavish-spending brothers and their increasingly powerful allies appear committed to the proposition that government of the plutocrats, by the plutocrats, and for the plutocrats shall not perish from the Earth. And it’s now clear that they can count on all the help they want from a court whose chief justice seems determined to eclipse the bad eminence of Roger B. Taney, a mid-19th-century predecessor whose outrageous Dred Scott ruling in 1857 aroused so much contention that it caused Abraham Lincoln to warn that our nation had become a “House Divided.” Today’s rapidly growing chasm between the haves and have-nots might appear unrelated to the conflicts that tore America apart during the Civil War. But when we view our fragile body politic in the light of recent court pronouncements on issues such as minority voting rights and corporate contributions to political candidates, it becomes difficult to avoid seeing polarities that look just as ominous as the ones that prompted our

he recent Supreme Court decision to loosen further laws that limit fat-cat dollars in elections was hardly surprising. Since the Citizens United decision in 2010, it has been clear that to a majority of the current Supreme Court, money is speech. The First Amendment allows no limits on free speech, therefore individuals and groups can spend freely to elect the candidates of their choice. Or so goes the logic of the Supreme Court. By itself, the recent McCutcheon decision is fairly narrow. It did not lift limits on individual donations — $5,200 during a two-year political cycle for federal election candidates ($2,600 per primary and general). What it did do, though, is eliminate the aggregate limit on how much an individual can donate to all candidates, parties and political action committees in a two-year election cycle. That had been capped at $123,200. Now, without a limit, billionaires — whether the Koch brothers or George Soros — can donate to as many congressional campaigns, for example, as they chose. On top of that, the donors can donate to political parties and PACs. The playing field is much wider. The McCutcheon decision increases the ability to spend, deepening the involvement of big money donors in elections (Shaun McCutcheon is an electrical engineer from Alabama who evidently likes politics). It is easy to see, in another few years, with the same Supreme Court makeup, a Chief Justice John Roberts writing a decision that would eliminate the limit on individual donations altogether. After all, if money is speech, shouldn’t donors be able to talk as loud as they want? What to do, then, if we believe that too much money is drowning out the voices of the little guys, those people without powerful interests to defend them? We believe that citizens have two paths to pursue. In the first, they accept that money is here to stay (for now, at least). Pass laws, whether at the state or federal level, to make transparent — immediately — who the donors are. With online technology, donors and their contributions can be made public easily. A DISCLOSE Act has been defeated, most recently in the Senate in 2012. It would have increased reporting standards so that donors could not remain in the dark. Such legislation needs to be revived across the country. To those who want both money and secrecy, citizens must say, “you cannot have both.” More broadly, we strongly agree with New Mexico U.S. Sen. Tom Udall, who is co-sponsoring a constitutional amendment to limit money in politics. His amendment would explicitly grant Congress the power to regulate money in politics. It rebuts the canard that spending money is equal to free speech. Udall rejects the notion, laid out in the 1976 case (Buckley v. Valeo) that equated money and speech. That case held that restricting independent campaign expenditures violated the First Amendment right to free speech. Then, in Citizens United v. FEC, a 2010 Supreme Court majority held that corporations deserve free speech protections. The McCutcheon v. FEC is just one more step giving the people with money the loudest voice. Citizens do not have to accept this. By demanding transparency and amending the Constitution to give Congress authority, we can take our government back.
The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: April 8, 1914: El Paso — Eight hundred members of the Spanish colony of Torreon, expelled from that town after having passed through the recent great battle in fear and trembling and afterward facing the wrath of General Villa stood today beneath the Stars and Stripes. They were truly refugees, stripped of their property for the time being at least, but supplied with temporary funds. Expressions of great relief came from them as they crossed the ugly wooden bridge, under which the muddy little stream known as the Rio Grande flows, and found themselves on American soil at last. April 8, 1964: Española — In one of the most obviously partisan elections in Española municipal history, Democrats bulldozed Republicans by about a 3-to-1 margin here Tuesday, winning every seat. It was the first “city” election for Española and all 10 elective positions were open — mayor, police magistrate and eight aldermen. The “village” council will meet once more to canvass the vote, and then will no longer be in existence. April 8, 1989: In a protest that skirted the issue, some boys at Santa Fe Preparatory School — denied permission to wear shorts — donned miniskirts instead. Girls are allowed to wear miniskirts. By the end of the school day, school officials abandoned their no-shorts rule.

New owner breathes new life into Museum Hill tennis club The objective is to create a destination for top talent and community gathering place By Bruce Krasnow The New Mexican
avid B. Garcia instantly saw the character and charm of the swim and tennis club tucked into the Museum Hill neighborhood off Camino Corrales. But he also had to imagine peeling away the dilapidated roofing, cracked stucco and warped woodwork. Today, the new owner of the Santa Fe Tennis and Swim Club, formerly the Sangre de Cristo Racquet Club, is nothing if not the biggest believer. After securing ownership of the property from foreclosure, Garcia, a former pharmaceutical scientist, is spending half a million dollars on renovations, including improvements to the kitchen and dining areas. The clubhouse will be gutted, there will be new heating, electrical and flooring, and the buildings and locker rooms will meet updated codes and standards under the Americans with Disabilities Act. When finished, he hopes the club once again will be a destination for top-flight tennis talent and a gathering place for community events. “There are some things we are keeping,” Garcia said. “We want to keep that Santa Fe charm. People who play there go there because of where it is situated — the mountains, the neighborhoods, it’s just a great environment. Once we get finished, it will be a real jewel for Santa Fe.” The club has one of the only clay tennis courts in New Mexico, according to Rocky Royer, a tennis professional who is staying on with the new ownership. Royer, once ranked No. 1 at Rice University and a nationally ranked professional singles player, has been the head pro since 1987. The 3½-acre club was built almost by accident by Dr. Richard Mechem, a cousin of Edwin Mechem, a former New Mexico governor and U.S. senator. A psychologist, Richard Mechem received his doctorate at The University of New Mexico before coming to Santa Fe to teach at the College of Santa Fe and run a family practice. As a tennis player, Richard Mechem won the Kansas state high school singles championship in 1945, then went on to play for Washburn University. He also was the head men’s coach at Kansas from 1952-56, according to biographical material. He continued to be a ranked player into his 40s and 50s. “Dr. Mechem’s outstanding play continued after college and he has been an instrumental part of player development wherever he lived,” according to a biography published by the U.S. Tennis Association. Mechem lived on the Museum Hill property and constructed two courts for his family. He was granted a zoning exception in 1967 by the city of Santa Fe’s Board of Adjustment to operate a private club in the residential neighborhood. The permit was expanded 10 years later to cover a small pro shop, four additional courts and the swimming pool, which is open during the summer months. But the permitting came with a special exception that would terminate with any change of ownership. A second requirement remains to this day: That the club limit its membership to 150. Due a divorce, Mechem encountered finan-
State, county job growth numbers slip S anta Fe’s labor force sometimes leads the rest of New Mexico, and it sometimes follows. New data for February show it is pretty much in sync with the rest of New Mexico, which has stalled considerably from a year ago with a decline of 1,900 jobs from February 2013 to February 2014. The February numbers keep New Mexico last in the United States in employment growth and one of only three states — along with Kentucky and Virginia — to show negative job growth. In Santa Fe County, the labor Bruce force declined by 200 jobs in the Krasnow 12 month-period that ended in February, according to the Department Business Matters of Workforce Solutions. While the construction and mining sector is showing improvement, with the addition of 200 jobs from a year earlier, the retail sector, which now employs 8,400 people in Santa Fe County, lost 500 jobs — a decline of 5.6 percent. Government on all levels now employs 16,800 people in Santa Fe County, down from 17,200 before the recession, but the job losses have largely stabilized. Nonfarm employment hit 65,000 in Santa Fe County in 2007 and 2008 before the Great Recession, shrinking to 58,800 in January-February 2011. The employment number in February 2014 stood at 60,500. uuu

cial difficulties and sought to lift the restriction on selling the business, which the city denied, according to the court filings. He pursued legal action in 1979, and the New Mexico Supreme Court ruled in 1981 that the restriction was unconstitutional and he was free to sell the property as a business. Mechem did so in 1987, but he remained in the adjacent house until 1998, when he moved his family to Fredericksburg, Texas. There, he went on to own the Barons Creek Racquet Club. Mechem also had a private practice in clinical psychology. Mechem died in July 2013 on a visit to Santa Fe, suffering an aneurysm at age 85, according to an obituary, and a memorial service was held at the tennis club, which he had visited the day before his death. Royer said he was hired in 1987 by those who bought the property from Mechem, Fred Tiberi, Mary Bush and Jackie Grab, and he remembers coaching the Mechem daughters in tennis while they still lived on the property. Two of the daughters went on to compete in college. Royer also said the club’s location in historic Santa Fe attracted some of the world’s best players, including Rod Laver, who visited in May 2003, and Roy Emerson, who came for charity tournaments and clinics. A U.S. National Coaches Clinic was once held at the club, which is open year-round. “We play outside all year; in winter, we blow snow off the courts,” Royer said. But Royer is the first to say the club is a throwback to a time when tennis and seasonal swimming were at the center of a neighborhood. Since then, large clubs such as El Gancho have come on the scene with year-round fitness, tennis, swimming, yoga, food and juice bars. But the Santa Fe Tennis and Swim Club will never be that, nor does Garcia want it to be. Like Mechem, Garcia comes to the club with a strong educational background as well as a love for the game of tennis. Born in El Paso, he served in the Marines during the Vietnam War, then went on to get a doctorate in pharmaceutical chemistry from the University of Texas, where he still serves on the adjunct faculty. As a businessman, he owned a company that did clinical studies for the pharmaceutical industry, and he used some of his earnings to launch the Hispanic Scholarship Consortium in Austin to help Hispanic high school graduates in central Texas.
Santa Fe will become the center of the universe for the consumer law world when an annual conference sponsored by the University of Houston’s Center for Consumer Law is held here in May.

Garcia and his wife, whom he met in the hotel lobby at a business meeting in Budapest, Hungary, first came onto the Camino Corrales property when they were looking for a place to play tennis close to their Garcia Street home, which they purchased after relocating to Santa Fe three years ago. He sees the rejuvenation of the club as a business challenge for both he and his wife, Assel Kussainova. “The main reason for me getting involved was to save the club, not to make money,” Garcia said. But he emphasized that he doesn’t want to lose money — and therein lies the challenge for a club limited to 150 members. Garcia said the property reminds him very much of the Courtyard Tennis Club in Austin, and he understands that if membership cannot increase, revenue has to grow elsewhere. He hopes to improve the pro shop and open the facility to catered events and speakers who can engage the members and the public. “We have artists, poets, physicists, entrepreneurs as members. We have some very talented people,” said Garcia, who also plans to reach out to local culinary schools to see if they might offer speciality dinners at the club. He also hopes to put the club on the map for tourists who want to come to Santa Fe for a scenic game of tennis or lessons from a ranked pro. “There are a lot of people who come into town to play tennis, and if they don’t know of a place, they won’t bring their stuff,” Garcia said.

Santa Fe pays more at pump The average gas price in New Mexico is $3.41 per gallon. That’s 2 cents more than last week but 9 cents less than one year ago, according to the AAA New Mexico Weekend Gas Watch. Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in the Land of Enchantment, drivers in Santa Fe are paying the most at $3.42, and drivers in Las Cruces are paying the least at $3.30 per gallon. On average, New Mexico drivers are paying 16 cents less per gallon than the national average of $3.57. AAA analysts say prices may move a little higher in the coming weeks; however, the end of rising prices is likely in sight for many drivers across the country. The exception to this trend could be in regions where unexpected refinery or disruption issues cause prices to temporarily spike. Refineries are required to switch to production of summer-blend gasoline by May 1. The changeover and refinery maintenance increases the possibility of a disruption to production, which can send prices higher in an area that is normally supplied by a limited or offline facility. So far this spring, these sorts of refinery issues have been minimal. The New Mexican

winner when he was penalized for speeding on pit road and finished 15th. “I was just trying to get a little too much on pit road. … Tried a little too hard,” Keselowski said. “We’re in it for wins. We’re not in it for second. Second or 15th is the same for us.” On a restart at lap 262, Logano quickly pulled his Ford away from the field and had a nearly 5-second lead before his last green-flag stop. After the green-white-checkered restart on lap 339, Logano went inside past Brian Vickers and quickly got behind Gordon’s No. 24 Chevrolet that had only two fresh tires. Heading onto the frontstretch, Logano went low and was able to get past Gordon going into the first turn. “He crossed over and got into the back of me pretty good,” said Gordon,
who took over the points lead. “At that point, I was just thinking, I just want to finish. Looked out my mirror, those guys were racing hard being me. A great, great second-place finish for me.” Kyle Busch finished third, ahead of Brian Vickers and rookie Kyle Larson. Logano, the only driver with top-five finishes in both Texas races last season, got his fourth career victory after leading 108 of 340 laps — six laps more than scheduled. Team Penske joined Stewart-Haas Racing as the only teams with multiple winners this season. Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished last in a 43-car field for the first time in seven seasons after driving his car into the rain-saturated infield grass before it shot across the track and slammed into the wall in a fiery crash.

Uconn: Kentucky’s freshmen were outdone Continued from Page B-1 game with 25.1 seconds left. “We had our chances to win,” Calipari said. “We’re missing shots, we’re missing free throws. We just didn’t have enough.” In all, Calipari’s One and Doners got outdone by a more fundamentally sound, moreseasoned group that came into this tournament a seventhseeded afterthought but walked away with the program’s fourth national title since 1999. They were the highest seed to win it all since Rollie Massimino’s eighth-seeded Villanova squad in 1985. Napier and Boatright now go down with Kemba Walker, Emeka Okafor and all those other UConn champs of years past. This adds to the school’s titles in 1999, 2004 and 2011. This one was, by far, the most unexpected. A short year ago, UConn was preparing for its first season in the new American Athletic Conference after being booted
from the Big East and not welcomed by any of the so-called power conferences. Longtime coach Jim Calhoun left because of health problems. And most damaging — the NCAA ban that triggered an exodus of five key players to the NBA or other schools. Napier stuck around. So did Boatright. And Calhoun’s replacement, Kevin Ollie, figured out how to get the most out of their grit and court sense. “Coach Calhoun, the greatest coach ever,” Ollie said. “He paved the way we just walked through it.” They were one step ahead of Kentucky all night, holding off furious rally after furious rally. Kentucky’s biggest push started when James Young (20 points, seven rebounds) posterized Amida Brimah with a monster dunk to start a threepoint play and trigger an 8-0 run. In the middle of that, Boatright, who shut down Harrison’s twin brother, Andrew,
most of the night, twisted his left ankle while receiving an innocuous-looking pass from Napier. He called a timeout. Got it worked on and came back out. Napier and Niels Giffey made 3s on UConn’s next two possessions, and suddenly, that one-point lead was back up to five — fairly comfortable by this tight, taut, buzzer-beating tournament’s standards. The big question in Kentucky is what will happen to all those freshmen. Julius Randle (10 points, six rebounds) is a lottery pick if he leaves for the NBA. Young and the Harrison brothers could be firstrounders, too. Big question is whether they’ll want to leave on this note. They were preseason No. 1, a huge disappointment through much of this season, then came on just in time for a run to the final. But they got outdone by a team on a different sort of mission — a team led by Napier, who stuck with the program
even though he knew the 201213 season was for nothing but fun. Oh, what fun this was, though. Napier was named the Final Four’s Most Outstanding Player and he earned it on both ends of the court, keeping a hand in Aaron Harrison’s face most of the night and holding him to a 3-for-7, seven-point, no-damage night. He could also shoot it a bit — including a 3-pointer in the first half when UConn was having trouble dissecting the Kentucky zone. The shot came from about 30 feet, right in front of the edge of the Final Four logo at Center Court, or, as Dick Vitale put it: “He shot that one from Fort Worth.” They felt it back in Storrs, where they could be celebrating another title shortly. The UConn women play for the national title Tuesday. If they win, it will be the first sweep of the titles since 2004. The last school to do it: UConn, of course.
Game: Notre Dame seeks 1st title since 2001 Continued from Page B-1 Tuesday night that wouldn’t normally tune in,” he said. “A game on national television between two great teams, nothing could be better for the sport.” There’s also so much at stake for both teams. A victory by UConn over its rival would be the ninth of Geno Auriemma’s career breaking a tie with Pat Summitt for the most all-time. And if he does it, he’ll accomplish it in Summitt’s backyard. “I’m not a numbers guy and don’t get caught up in that stuff,” Auriemma said. “Wednesday morning when I wake up, my life doesn’t change one iota. Stewie [Breanna Stewart] says she came to win four national championships, that’s what I think is more significant. For Bria [Hartley] and Stef [Dolson] to win a national championship their senior years. They get ‘X’ amount of chances to do it. God willing, I’ll get more chances down the road.” While Auriemma deflected the talk on a record title, Dolson is happy to be a part of it. “It’s amazing,” the 6-foot-5 Connecticut center said. “I mean, obviously it’s something coach isn’t going to talk about. We
don’t really talk about as a team, it’s just something that we know that we have the chance help him kind of win that ninth one. … But if it happens, for all of us, now we have two of the nine. You know we have, like I was talking about that small piece of history. It’s just something we have a chance to kind of add to the legacy of UConn and add to coach’s legacy. I think that’s something he would be extremely proud of.” It would also be the fifth unbeaten season for Auriemma and UConn and the first time the Huskies went 40-0. They’d match Baylor as the only team to accomplish that feat. Also if the Connecticut men’s team can pull off a victory Monday night in its title game it would be the second time in a decade that both UConn programs were national champions. Notre Dame isn’t concerned about UConn’s program. The Irish are looking for their first since 2001 — the school’s only championship. They have made the Final Four the past four seasons, including reaching the title game in three of those years. This year they hope for a breakthrough. “Getting here consistently has been
great for our program,” McGraw said. “Taking the next step would be a huge accomplishment.” Notre Dame has owned the series lately, winning seven of the last nine meetings between the schools. The Irish players have a simple explanation why they’ve had success against the Huskies. “We’re not afraid of them,” Irish sophomore star Jewell Loyd said. “You know a lot of people, like Kayla [McBride] was saying, they look at the jersey and they’re just like, ‘Oh my gosh!’ Obviously, UConn is a great program they’ve done a lot of things that other programs haven’t done. But we go in there we have that swagger that chip on our shoulder that we’re coming in to battle.” The former Big East schools have a mutual respect for each other, but that’s about where it ends. There’s no love lost between the programs — not even with the coaches. “We don’t have a relationship,” McGraw said. “I think that [the civility] got lost. When we were in the same conference, I think there was a modicum of it but I think after beating them and not feeling any respect from that, we lost something.”
Jeter: Solarte gets go-ahead RBI single Continued from Page B-1 Kuroda (1-1) pitched 6⅓ sharp innings in the Yankees’ 112th opener in New York. Teammates in the dugout teased Jeter for his near blunder. “For Derek, at 40, we’re going to let it slide,” said injured first baseman Mark Teixeira, pushing Jeter’s 40th birthday up a couple of months from June. In what manager Joe Girardi said would be a season-long lovefest for Jeter, the shortstop was cheered every step of the way by an adoring crowd of 48,142 — even when his double-play grounder back to Orioles starter Ubaldo Jimenez (0-2) scored rookie Solarte in the third inning for the first run. Solarte, a career minor leaguer and nonroster invitee to spring training, continued a torrid start as the suspended
Alex Rodriguez’s replacement at third base with a go-ahead RBI single in the fourth inning. Playing in his first game in the Bronx, Solarte needed Jeter to tell him to wave to the Bleacher Creatures when they chanted his name during pregame roll call. “Every day I look and Derek Jeter is playing next to me. I saw him since I was little and I could never even fathom that I would get to play with him on the same field,” Solarte said. “Every day I try to learn something from him.” The Orioles got RBI singles from Matt Wieters and Nelson Cruz in falling to 2-5. Adam Jones and Chris Davis struck out against Adam Warren with a runner on in the eighth and trailing 4-2. Matt Thornton, David Phelps, Warren and Shawn Kelley combined for hitless relief. Kelley pitched a perfect ninth
for his first career save. Robertson was hurt Sunday during his third outing as Mariano Rivera’s replacement at the back end of the bullpen after a major league-record 562 saves. “Other guys get a chance to step up, and you expect them to step up and get the job done in his absence,” Girardi said. After missing all but 17 games last season, Jeter announced Feb. 12 this would be his final season. His retirement tour started on the road, where New York went 3-3 against Houston and Toronto. But Jeter, who went 1 for 4, has said the season doesn’t really start until the Yankees have had their home opener, and to help celebrate, the team brought together the five-time World Series champion Core Four. Recently retired teammates Andy Pettitte and Rivera threw ceremonial first pitches
to Jeter and Jorge Posada, who retired after 2011. With an era coming to a close, change was evident everywhere. Robertson moved into Rivera’s locker. Carlos Beltran was given Robinson Cano’s choice spot next to the door leading to the players’ off-limits sanctuary. And the only evidence that Rodriguez — banned for the year because of his involvement in the Biogenesis drug scandal — is still a member of the Yankees was in a new series of paintings hanging in the hallway leading to the clubhouse that celebrate New York’s recent World Series championships. Solarte scored New York’s first run, starting the third with a walk after falling behind 0-2. He went 1 for 3, just missing a homer, and is 9 for 20 this season with six RBIs.
Pacers: Indiana trails Miami by one game Continued from Page B-1 After losing for the fifth time in six games, the Pacers are now one game behind Miami in the Eastern Conference standings. Vogel benched Hibbert for the final 2½ quarters Sunday because he thought Hibbert looked fatigued. Vogel noted afterward that his entire starting lineup looked tired, though he played George and David West deep into the fourth quarter. Hibbert did not take questions after the game. There has been speculation about a growing rift between the Pacers’ young coach and their star center, who has publicly complained about “selfish dudes” and suggested the Pacers needed “group therapy.” Teammates deny there are any problems between the two.
“Roy will settle down,” West said when asked how Hibbert responded to the benching. “He’s down on himself because he felt like he could have helped us, but coach made a decision. Coach has to make some tough decisions sometimes, and it was to get him some rest. … Coach made the right choice.” There have also been questions about Stephenson’s body language and his untimely ejection in the March 26 win over Miami and whether the Pacers’ struggles can be blamed on a young team wilting in the spotlight. What can the Pacers do to fix all these problems before the playoffs start? “For one, we just can’t panic. I mean we can’t panic. We’ve just got to be loose about it,” George said. “We’re just putting too much pressure where it doesn’t need
to be brought. We just got to do what we do. We’re in a great position right now.” At 53-25, Indiana has clinched its second straight Central Division title, still has the NBA’s best home record (34-6) and trails Miami by just one game in the East. Before the season, fans would have applauded that resume. On Sunday, they booed. “It’s understandable. You know we scored 23 points in the first half. That’s unacceptable and we know that,” George said, referring to the worst first-half point total in franchise history. “But I don’t think we deserve to be booed. You know, all that we’ve done this year. I definitely thought it was uncalled for.” They have four regular-season games remaining, including a Friday night showdown at Miami.

Sharp Lackey, Red Sox beat the Rangers The Associated Press
BOSTON — John Lackey pitched seven strong innings, Jackie Bradley Jr. singled in two runs and Red Sox 5 the Boston Red Sox Rangers 1 snapped a three-game losing streak with a 5-1 win over the Texas Rangers on Monday night. The Red Sox never lost more than three straight last year when they won the World Series. They avoided dropping their first four home games for the first time since 1984. Lackey (2-0) allowed an unearned run and five hits in seven innings five days after giving up two runs over six innings in a 6-2 win at Baltimore. Chris Capuano pitched the eighth and Koji Uehara escaped a second-and-third jam in the ninth in a non-save situation. Tanner Scheppers (0-1) allowed Bradley’s run-scoring hits in the second and fourth, and Boston added three runs in the eighth. Bradley, Mike Napoli and A.J. Pierzynski each had three singles for the Red Sox. Boston took a 1-0 lead in the second on an RBI single by Bradley after singles by Xander Bogaerts and Pierzynski. Texas tied it in the fourth on singles by Adrian Beltre and Alex Rios, a passed ball and a sacrifice fly by Mitch Moreland. ROYALS 4, RAYS 2 In Kansas City, Mo., Jason Vargas took a shutout into the ninth inning, Alcides Escobar hit a three-run double, and the Royals beat Tampa Bay in a game that included two significant injuries. Rays starter Matt Moore (0-2) came out in the fifth inning with a sore left elbow. The All-Star lefty grimaced after throwing a pitch to Norichika Aoki and was immediately removed by manager Joe Maddon. Two innings later, Royals second baseman Omar Infante was hit in the face by a pitch from reliever Heath Bell. Infante also left the game, walking off under his own power with two trainers. Infante, struck on the left cheek, was spitting blood and had blood on his forehead as trainers held a towel to his face. Vargas (1-0) allowed four hits in eight-plus innings, lowering his ERA to 1.20 in two starts. He lost his shutout bid when Ben Zobrist homered on his second pitch in the ninth. Greg Holland earned his third save, but not before giving up an RBI single to pinch-hitter Matt Joyce. Escobar was 1 for 19 before his bases-loaded double off the left field wall with two outs in the seventh. Evan Longoria had three hits for the Rays, who have lost seven straight at Kauffman Stadium. ANGELS 9, ASTROS 1 In Houston, C.J. Wilson pitched eight solid innings, Howie Kendrick and Raul Ibanez each drove in three runs, and Los Angeles beat the Astros. The Angels took three of four from Houston after starting the season 0-3. Kole Calhoun homered off Houston starter Jarred Cosart (1-1). Wilson (1-1) yielded four hits and a run while fanning seven. ATHLETICS 8, TWINS 3 In Minneapolis, Yoenis Cespedes proved he can play through a hurting right heel, giving Scott Kazmir and Oakland a spark with a pair of RBIs that helped spoil Minnesota’s home opener. Cespedes has been hobbling around the last few days with the injury, but the team wasn’t worried enough about it to hold him out of the lineup. The Cuban slugger hit a double in the second inning for the first run against Kevin Correia (0-1) and later had a sacrifice fly. Moss added a two-run single in the third and Derek Norris homered in the sixth.

1934 — The Philadelphia Athletics and the Philadelphia Phillies played the first legal Sunday baseball game in Philadelphia. The exhibition game was made possible when the state made Sunday baseball a local option and the city approved it in a referendum ballot. 1969 — The Montreal Expos played their first regular-season game — the first international contest in major league history — and defeated the New York Mets 11-10 at Shea Stadium. Expos pitcher Dan McGinn hit the expansion team’s first home run. 1986 — Jim Presley of the Seattle Mariners hit home runs in the ninth and 10th innings for a come-from-behind 8-4 opening day victory over the California Angels. 1987 — Pitchers Phil Niekro and Steve Carlton of the Cleveland Indians teamed up to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 14-3. Niekro recorded his 312th victory and Carlton pitched four shutout innings in relief. It was the first time in modern history that two 300-game winners pitched for the same team in the same game. 1993 — Carlos Baerga of the Cleveland Indians became the first player in major league history to hit home runs from both sides of the plate in the same inning. The homers came in the seventh inning of a 15-5 rout of the New York Yankees. 2011 — Manny Ramirez retired from baseball after testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug. The slumping Tampa Bay slugger informed Major League Baseball that he would retire rather than face a 100-game suspension. Ramirez served a 50-game ban for violating the drug policy in 2009.

Standing room attendance of 47,492, the largest crowd at 9-year-old Busch Stadium, braved daylong rain and temperatures in the 40s to greet the National League champions and take a look at the new Ballpark Village. Hundreds milled about the attached complex, which features five sports bars and rooftop seating. The Cardinals bunched three hits and a walk over the first five hitters to take the early lead against Cingrani (0-1), who allowed two hits in seven scoreless innings six days earlier in Cincinnati. The Cards went 1 for 18 before adding RBIs from Matt Holliday and Allen Craig off Trevor Bell in a two-run seventh. St. Louis ended a three-game losing
Isotopes beat Reno 4-2 without trailing Henry Sosa pitched six innings of three-hit ball, leading the Albuquerque Isotopes to a 4-2 win at Reno in the opener of a four-game Pacific Coast League series Monday night. Sosa (1-0) allowed just one earned run and struck out four as Albuquerque (3-1) won its third straight game. The Isotopes never trailed, getting what proved to be the winning runs in the top of the first inning when cleanup man Clint Robinson drove home Joc Pederson and Jamie Romak with a one-out single to center field. Sosa did the rest from there, needing just 72 pitches to get through his six innings. Sam Demel earned his second save of the season, working
streak on opening day, including a blowout loss to the Reds last year. The 22-year-old Wacha (1-0) hadn’t allowed a run in 21 career innings against the Reds before back-to-back
a shaky ninth in which he gave up a run on two hits before closing things out. Robinson and Pederson paced Albuquerque’s 12-hit attack, combining to go 5-for-8 with three driven in. Pederson also homered, hitting a solo shot in the top of the seventh for his second long ball of the season. The Isotopes and Aces will resume their series Tuesday Night at Aces Park. Albuquerque will spend the first eight days of the PCL season on the road, finally opening its home schedule Friday night at Isotopes Park against the Tacoma Rainiers. The New Mexican
doubles by Brayan Pena and pinch hitter Roger Bernadina in the fifth cut the Cardinals’ lead to 3-1. The NL championship series MVP benefited from two double-play balls in
six stingy innings and has permitted one run in 13⅔ innings his first two starts. INTERLEAGUE ROCKIES 8, WHITE SOX 1
In Denver, Jordan Lyles used his arm and bat to lead Colorado over the Chicago White Sox in his Coors Field debut for the Rockies. Lyles pitched 6⅔ effective innings. He also had a career-best three hits and drove in two runs. Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki homered for the Rockies. Lyles (2-0) scattered five hits and walked two. He joined the Rockies from Houston in a trade for Dexter Fowler last winter. The last Colorado pitcher to go 3 for 3 was lefty Brian Bohanon against the Dodgers on July 20, 2001. Chicago right-hander Felipe Paulino (0-1) allowed six earned runs on nine hits and four walks in 4⅓ innings in his return to Coors Field, where he pitched for the Rockies in 2011 before being plagued by arm troubles the last two years.

ditional album sales fall while streaming audio, social media and online video take hold among fans. “Nashville has just embraced younger artists and let them pass through the gates with less resistance than in the past,” said Allen Shapiro, chief executive of Dick Clark Productions, which willpresented the awards show at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. One company looking to country as an avenue into a multiplatform future is Cumulus Media, a national chain of about 460 radio stations. Last year it introduced a countrythemed brand, “Nash,” when it opened WNSH, or Nash FM, in New York, the city’s first country station in 17 years. The Nashville gold rush has not worked out for everyone. Cable networks rushed out new reality shows looking to exploit the city’s new hip factor, but the track record of these shows may be an indication of a limited appetite among viewers. Chasing Nashville, a Lifetime series about young women aspiring to be stars in the country business, was canceled after four episodes; Crazy Hearts: Nashville on A&E was not renewed for a second season. Yet on a recent Monday morning, the Nash studios were a hive of multimedia activity. In one studio, the morning radio crew spun pop-flavored country hits like Sara Evans’ “Slow Me Down” as producers monitored the show’s test feed for video. Next door, editors assembled Country Weekly magazine — soon to be re-branded as Nash, following a deal with Country Weekly’s publisher, American Media Inc. — while down the hall a crew from Nashville loaded equipment for a location shot. Kix Brooks, who during the 1990s and early 2000s sold 27 million albums as part of the country duo Brooks & Dunn, and who now hosts two shows for Nash, sat in his corner studio, decorated with Frederic Remington statues, and a giant leather couch. “I don’t think country music is hick music anymore,” Brooks said. “It’s not hay bales and cornfields.”

Carson Daly hosts. 7 p.m. on PBS The Dave Clark Five — Glad All Over, a Great Performances Special This new special is a must-see for Dave Clark Five fans in particular and 1960s music fans in general — but you don’t have to be either one to appreciate it. Performance footage, home movies and celebrity commentaries tell the story of the British band that made dozens of hit singles and even bumped the Beatles off the No. 1 spot on the charts. 7 p.m. on ABC Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team are in a precarious position in this new episode. Not only are they trapped without access to anyone they can trust, but they have a traitor in their midst. Bill Paxton and Saffron Burrows guest star in “Turn, Turn, Turn”; Ming-Na Wen and Brett Dalton also star.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. n the radio, it has displaced Top 40 as America’s most popular musical format. Its biggest star is Taylor Swift, a 24-year-old phenomenon who last year earned more from music than any other singer — nearly $40 million, according to Billboard magazine. And in June, Rolling Stone, the rock ’n’ roll bible, will unveil a website devoted to the genre. Country has long been a mainstay of American music. But as the music industry continues to struggle financially and once-dominant genres like hip-hop recede on the charts, country’s audience has grown stronger, wider and younger. On Sunday night, country’s increasingly mainstream appeal was on display during the Academy of Country Music Awards on CBS, which last year had 15.5 million viewers, its biggest audience in 15 years, according to Nielsen. “Nashville has become a musical superpower,” said Scott Borchetta, chief executive of Big Machine Label Group, the record company behind Swift and other popular young acts like the Band Perry and Florida Georgia Line. Nashville, country music’s spiritual and commercial home, has in recent years acquired some glamour — and attracted tourism dollars — with help from Nashville, ABC’s prime-time soap opera about warring country divas. Much as Dallas did for its namesake in the 1980s, the show, filmed here and featuring Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere, has helped put its city on the American pop-cultural map. That map has always included a country star or two, whether it was Garth Brooks and Shania Twain in the 1990s or Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton in earlier decades. But the genre’s latest wave, led by telegenic and web-savvy young stars like Swift, Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton, has been characterized by changes in media consumption, as tra-

Today in history Today is Tuesday, April 8, the 98th day of 2014. There are 267 days left in the year. Today’s highlight in history: On April 8, 1864, the United States Senate passed, 38-6, the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution abolishing slavery. (The House of Representatives passed it in Jan. 1865; the amendment was ratified and adopted in Dec. 1865.)
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Stay on top of a domestic matter, regardless of what happens. You could feel overburdened by an offer that actually could be more of a problem than a solution. Tonight: Happy at home. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Handle a situation before it gets too overwhelming. You have a lot to do, but know that a partner will lend a hand. Tonight: Out and about. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHH Be aware of the costs of proceeding as you have been. Someone you care about finally will share why he or she is so irritable. Tonight: Out shopping. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH You beam and draw positive results. Someone at a distance could play a significant role in upcoming plans. Tonight: Do what makes you happy. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH You might feel a little down or taken aback by a situation that surrounds you. One-on-one relating could provide important information. Tonight: Visit over dinner.
Man lacks control of his own affairs
Dear Annie: My mother is approaching 80, and after raising three of us, she is in declining health. My brother and sister live near Mom, but I couldn’t handle big-city life, so after I married, we moved to my wife’s hometown. I don’t drive, so visiting my family always means relying on my wife, and she is perpetually late. And the drive there involves much shouting, as she blames me for our “being tardy.” She also controls the checking account and gives me a small allowance and a low-limit credit card, and I don’t have the authority to call to check the balance or raise the limit. I inherited a fair amount of money from my uncle, and my wife and I turned it into a successful business, but we work day and night. My wife decided not to have kids in order to dedicate all of our time to making money. That leaves my brother and sister to take care of all of our mother’s needs. My sister-in-law recently called and blasted me for doing so little. I knew she was right, as my brother had just accompanied the ambulance to the hospital (again) in the middle of the night. My mother recently told me that she has rewritten her will to give the bulk of her sizable estate to my sister and brother. She also said that whatever I do inherit shouldn’t go to my wife or her family. I told her to put my brother in charge of my share, because he will follow her instructions. I guess what I’m really saying is that money isn’t everything. While I enjoy the benefits of our income, I am jealous of my friends and family who have children. I’m sorry, Mom. If I could only do it all over again, I would. — A in P Dear A.: It’s good that you recognize your siblings’ contributions, but please don’t throw up your hands and say there’s nothing you can do. You can do plenty. Why does your wife handle all the
money in your household? Are you irresponsible? If not, this is controlling and could be abusive. You also allowed her to control the decision not to have children. If you don’t like these arrangements, why do you permit them to continue? Stop being a passive bystander in your own life. Get counseling and figure out what you want and how to get there. Dear Annie: I supplement my granddaughter’s education with “extras,” such as teaching her foreign languages and music. I would love to teach her cursive writing this summer. As an educator, it saddens me that this beautiful skill is being lost in the schools amidst other things deemed more important. Where does one get materials to use when teaching cursive? I imagine a lot of us would love to know. — Grandmother Dear Grandmother: We think this is a terrific idea. While there are a number of downloadable forms online, you can also go to any school supply store for workbooks that help teach cursive. And your local library or bookstore will have suggestions and materials. All it takes is a patient teacher and a willing student. Dear Annie: After reading the letter from “Heartbroken Parents in Vermont,” I realize that I am not alone in this terrible situation. I have not heard from my daughter in more than a year. I sent emails (no response) letting her know I was thinking about her and that I’m here if she needs me. But the last time I sent an email, it bounced back. There are moments when the pain is unbearable and the worry consumes me, but I try to keep my mind busy with work. I realize that for now, this is what she wants, but it doesn’t take away the terrible ache in my heart. — Suffering Alone in Montreal
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH You might want to defer to others with a personal matter right now, especially if your temper is short. Tonight: Have a quiet chat with a close friend. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH You could be concerned about a boss or parent. You often worry about this person’s judgment. Know that you can’t change the path that he or she is on. Tonight: Count on a late night. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH Reach out to someone at a distance who helps you relax and adds to your creativity.
