lizabeth loves the service provided by Kitchen Angels. “These people are kind, considerate, and they are human,” she said as she accepted the Thanksgiving dinner the 21-year-old nonprofit provided her on Thursday. “They don’t judge us because we need help.” Elizabeth, who asked that her last name not be published, was one of about 90 people who benefited from Kitchen Angels’ cadre of volunteer drivers, all of whom delivered three to four days’ worth of freshly prepared meals to clients in Santa Fe on Thanksgiving. About 50 volunteers worked in the kitchen at Kitchen Angels’ site on Siler Road or helped deliver the dinners, which were individually prepared based on clients’ diet needs. Kitchen Angels provides free, nourishing meals to people confined to their homes and those who have chronic, life-threatening or terminal illnesses. In its 21-year history, the organization estimates it has delivered about 800,000 meals to some 4,000 people. Its annual budget is just under $600,000. It employs four full-time staff members and relies on the work of more than 300 regular volunteers. One of those volunteers is retired teacher Judy Strittmatter, who has been delivering Kitchen Angels meals for 14 years. She devotes about 90 minutes of her time every Thursday — including Thanksgiving — to bring meals to residents of an apartment com-

WASHINGTON — For the first time since 1959, nonprofit advocacy groups face new Internal Revenue Service rules governing their political activities, an area of the tax code that has been crying out for greater clarity. A proposed regulation unveiled Tuesday by the Treasury Department draws the boundaries more clearly — but instantly kicked off intense debate about whether the lines are in the right place. One phrase in the official notice summed up the imperfect nature of the exercise. The new rules, the department said, “may be both more restrictive and more permissive than the current approach.” That seemingly contradictory statement reflects the muddy zone now occupied by “social welfare” organizations set up under section 501(c)(4) of the tax code. Originally a designation used by civic leagues and homeowner associations, social welfare groups emerged in the past decade as the go-to vehicles for political operatives seeking to influence campaigns without revealing their donors. Little governs their activities except a 54-year-old regulation that states that a group can qualify as a social welfare organization “if it is primarily engaged in promoting in some way the common good and general welfare of the people of the community.”

NATION&WORLD Balloons steal the show at Macy’s parade

China sends warplanes into maritime air defense zone

The Associated Press

NEW YORK evelers at this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade gave thanks for the giant balloons that flew above the city streets Thursday after a blustery storm accompanied by high winds nearly grounded them for only the second time in the parade’s 87-year history. “The balloons are the best part,” 11-year-old Matthew Ragbe said as he watched them leave their launch pads on 77th Street and turn the corner to face the crowds of parade-goers, many of whom waited hours to secure a good viewing spot. Across the country, millions of Americans celebrated their blessings, gobbled up turkey and pumpkin pie and prepared to kick off the official start to the Christmas shopping season. In Detroit, former Tigers manager Jim Leyland served as grand marshal of the city’s parade, while Philadelphia celebrations were subdued slightly by gusting winds that limited the use of balloons. In New York City, tens of thousands of people lining the parade route were not disheartened by freezing temperatures or the drama over whether Spider-Man, Julius, Snoopy and SpongeBob SquarePants would make their scheduled appearances along with a dozen other puffed-up sky-bound creatures. “We thought they’d find a way


A giant Uncle Sam balloon is marched down Sixth Avenue during the 87th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday in New York. After fears the balloons could be grounded if sustained winds exceeded 23 mph, the iconic balloons received the all-clear from the New York Police Department to fly between Manhattan skyscrapers.

to pull it off,” said parade-goer John Mispagel, of San Jose, Calif. “It’s really fun seeing so many people having such a great time.” Dozens of balloon handlers kept a tight grip on their inflated characters, keeping them close to the ground to fight winds that reached the mid-20 mph range. Caution was necessary to prevent a recurrence of the kind of high-wind accident that crashed a Cat in the Hat balloon into a light pole in 1997, seriously injuring a spectator. Balloons were only grounded once in the parade’s history, with bad weather to blame in 1971. The balloons were sprinkled along a parade led by a bright orange Tom Turkey float that gleamed in the sunlight. Also featured were thousands of baton twirlers, clowns, cheerleaders, marching musicians and performers including Brett Eldrege, Joan Jett and the Blankhearts, Jimmy Fallon and the Roots, the Goo Goo Dolls and Kellie Pickler. “It’s amazing,” Pickler said, preparing to sing

“Little Bit Gypsy.” The parade largely went off without a hitch, though Sonic the Hedgehog got briefly hung up in the branches of a tree and a spinning dreidel balloon became temporarily deflated on a float meant to mark the start of Hanukkah, which fell on Thanksgiving for the first time in centuries. In Philadelphia, gusty winds of 28 mph limited use of balloons during its annual parade, with officials citing concern for the safety of participants and spectators. Instead of flying along the entire route, the balloons soared only around Eakins Oval and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Elsewhere in the country, Thanksgiving traditions were largely unaffected by the weather. In Detroit, the Tigers’ popular former manager served as grand marshal of that city’s Thanksgiving Day parade, which is billed as the nation’s second largest, behind New York’s. Revelers braved snow showers and slick

roads to see two dozen floats and a performance by singer Ruben Studdard. In Washington, President Barack Obama and family celebrated a quiet holiday at the White House. The menu was quintessential Thanksgiving, including turkey and six choices of pie. In New York City, volunteers from Citymeals-on-Wheels escorted dozens of elderly residents from neighborhoods affected by Superstorm Sandy to a Manhattan restaurant feast. The organization funded almost 20,500 Thanksgiving meals. On Wednesday, two American astronauts on board the International Space Station, Mike Hopkins and Rick Mastracchio, released a video from 260 miles above Earth showing off their traditional Thanksgiving meal: irradiated smoked turkey, thermostabilized yams, cornbread dressing, potatoes, freeze-dried asparagus, baked beans, bread, cobbler and dehydrated green bean casserole.

Worker’s warning over Brazil stadium ignored By Tales Azzoni

The Associated Press

SÃO PAULO — A safety engineer at the World Cup stadium where a giant crane collapse killed two workers allegedly warned his supervisor of possible problems with the operation, only to have his concerns brushed aside, a labor union leader charged Thursday, as sniping over the accident heated up. The incident has fed worries about Brazil’s capacity to host next year’s showcase tournament, as well as the 2016 Olympics, though authorities insist they will be ready for both. São Paulo’s Arena Corinthians was slated to be completed by the end of December, and workers have suggested that speed was a top priority on the construction site, with many working 12-hour shifts and skipping vacations.

The stadium was initially scheduled to be part of the Confederations Cup earlier this year, but world football’s governing body FIFA scrapped the venue from the warm-up tournament because of financing problems before construction even started. Antonio de Sousa Ramalho, president of São Paulo’s civil industry workers’ association, told The Associated Press in a phone interview that supervisors pressed ahead with the operation to finish the roof despite several rainy days that soaked the soil. He said the engineer warned his supervisor that the ground was not stable enough to support the 500-ton piece of roofing. “To his surprise, he was told by the supervisor that nothing was wrong and work should continue,” said Ramalho, who declined to provide the worker’s name for fear of possible reprisals.

Odebrecht, the powerful Brazilian construction company behind the stadium project and three other World Cup venues, strongly denied the claims, and a civil defense official said an initial inspection of the construction site a day after the accident showed no evidence the ground was unstable. A video released on Thursday by Globo television network shows how quickly the accident took place. The video, which Globo said was shot by architect Marcio Antonio Campos during a visit to the site Wednesday, shows the giant crane falter and tumble heavily to the ground. After the crash, dozens of hard-hatted workers are seen streaming toward the accident site. Following a visit to the site Thursday, the civil defense official in charge of the inspection said there were no obvious signs that the ground was unstable.

BEIJING — China said it sent warplanes into its newly declared maritime air defense zone Thursday, days after the U.S., South Korea and Japan all sent flights through the airspace in defiance of rules Beijing says it has imposed in the East China Sea. China’s air force sent several fighter jets and an early warning aircraft on normal air patrols in the zone, the Xinhua agency reported, citing air force spokesman Shen Jinke. The report did not specify exactly when the flights were sent or whether they had encountered foreign aircraft. The United States, Japan and South Korea have said they have sent flights through the zone without encountering any Chinese response. Shen said China’s air force would remain on high alert and will take measures to protect the country’s airspace.

Pizza Hut manager fired over Thanksgiving dispute ELKHART, Ind. — Pizza Hut has offered to rehire the manager of a northern Indiana restaurant who was fired over his refusal to open up on Thanksgiving Day. Tony Rohr said he has worked at the Elkhart restaurant since starting as a cook for more than 10 years but was told to write a letter of resignation after his refusal. He said he declined in a meeting with his boss and instead wrote a letter explaining that he believed the company should care more about its employees. Pizza Hut’s corporate office issued a statement Wednesday saying it respects an employee’s right to not work on the holiday and that the store owner has agreed to reinstate Rohr. Rohr said he hasn’t decided yet whether to accept the job offer.

Unions, greens clash at Monsanto plant in Argentina BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — Argentine union members on Thursday clashed with environmentalists protesting the construction of a plant by U.S.based seed giant Monsanto. Local media reported the groups came to blows outside the plant in Cordoba province. Environmentalist Vanina Barboza said dozens of workers from the Argentine Construction Union attacked the protest camp near the plant. Monsanto executive Adrian Vilalba accused the environmentalists of destroying workers’ cars.

Israel court fines woman over not circumcising son JERUSALEM — An Israeli rabbinic court has fined a woman hundreds of dollars for refusing to circumcise her baby son, officials said Thursday, in a landmark case that has sparked a new uproar over the role of religion in the Jewish state. Rabbinic courts in Israel have authority over certain Jewish family matters like marriage, divorce, conversion and burial. In the proceedings, the woman announced her refusal to circumcise the boy, saying she did not wish to harm him. The Israeli rabbinate’s high court ruled the circumcision was for the child’s welfare and that the woman must pay the equivalent of nearly $150 each day she refuses the circumcision be performed.

Scientists: Comet probably didn’t survive the sun orbit STOCKHOLM — Once billed as the comet of the century, Comet ISON apparently was no match for the sun. Scientists said images from NASA spacecraft showed the comet approaching for a slingshot around the sun on Thursday, but just a trail of dust coming out on the other end. Phil Plait, an astronomer who runs the “Bad Astronomy” blog, agreed, saying, “I don’t think the comet made it.” Still, he said, it wouldn’t be all bad news if the 4.5 billion-year-old space rock broke up into pieces, because astronomers might be able to study them and learn more about comets.

Egyptian blogger arrested for starting protest

The allegations are likely to stoke tension over Karzai’s reluctance to endorse a plan that would allow several thousand U.S. troops to remain in Afghanistan after 2014.

CAIRO — Egyptian security forces arrested a prominent political activist Thursday night over inciting a demonstration in defiance of a new law heavily restricting protests in the country, his family said. The arrest of Alaa AbdelFattah, a blogger who rose to prominence in Egypt’s 2011 revolution, quickly dominated social media. His previous detention sparked protests against the military, which appeared likely again as recently quiet liberal and secular groups have expressed increasing alarm over the military-backed government since it enacted the new protest law this week. Meanwhile, police used tear gas and water cannons Thursday to disperse protesting students and supporters of the country’s ousted Islamist president, sparking clashes that killed one person Abdel-Fattah’s father, prominent lawyer Ahmed Seif al-Islam, told The Associated Press that security forces raided his son’s home Thursday night in Cairo. His father said that Abdel-Fattah’s wife was beaten during the raid and that authorities seized laptops from the house. An Interior Ministry official later confirmed police arrested Abdel-Fattah over the warrant, but offered no other details.

Karzai said a U.S. “pilotless aircraft” fired into a house shortly before noon in Helmand province, killing the child and wounding two women. Spokesmen for the U.S.-led coalition did not respond to requests for comment.

Rules: Some groups vow to fight proposal Continued from Page A-1 Tax lawyers have interpreted that to mean that advocacy groups need to spend at least 51 percent of their resources on social welfare efforts to maintain their tax status. Until now, defining what falls outside of that has been left to a subjective “facts and circumstances” test by the IRS. The result: Social welfare groups such as Crossroads GPS and Americans for Prosperity on the right and the League of Conservation Voters and Patriot Majority on the left have pumped untold hundreds of millions of dollars into electionrelated activities in recent years while avoiding the donor disclosure required of more tightly regulated political committees. The explosion of politically active nonprofit groups — and the vague standards the IRS uses to assess them — led to the searing crisis that engulfed the agency this year, when an inspector general’s report revealed that employees had been selecting groups with names that included words such as “tea party” or “patriot” for extra scrutiny. In the aftermath, everyone agreed the system was broken. The new regulation defines “campaign-related political activity” that does not count toward a group’s social welfare purpose, a category that would include many routine functions of advocacy groups, such as voter registration. Treasury officials said the aim is to lay down a specific, neutral definition for political intervention, an effort cheered by many Democratic lawmakers and advocates for tighter campaign finance restrictions. “It’s the IRS scandal that pushed them to do it, but it’s terrific that they’re having a full regulatory process,” said lawyer John Pomeranz, who serves on a committee of tax law experts advising the Bright Lines Project, which developed model rules to govern the political activity of social welfare groups. “It has to get fixed, and they recognize it.” Even though the regulation is unlikely to become final before the 2014 elections, the proposal has already set off a heated debate about what constitutes partisan activity and whether limiting political activity tramples on free-speech protections. The battle is “going to be a knock-down, dragout,” said Ellen Aprill, a tax law professor at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. The angst is particularly acute among conservative groups, which have made more use of the freedom the tax code gives them to engage in campaigns. “The phone and email exploded,” said Dan Backer, an Alexandria, Va., lawyer specializing in election law who represents many nonprofit groups on the right. “We are all going to spend a tremendous amount of time and energy fighting back against this.” “The IRS is approaching this as, ‘We are giving you the right to speak and you are going to speak within the confines we tell you,’ ” Backer added. “And that’s wrong. This whole effort is simply a way to empower government to regulate speech.” Others challenge that notion, noting that groups that want to engage in campaigns can simply form political committees, which also are tax-exempt, but must disclose their contributors. Still, critics of the proposed rule include many liberal advocacy groups, which expressed alarm that the new regulation would treat activities such as distributing voter guides and running get-outthe-vote efforts as political. “Treasury and the IRS drew a very deep and troubling line in the sand,” the Alliance for Justice, an association of more than 100 nonprofit groups on the left, said in a statement. “Though the new definitions attempt to clarify existing rules, they also create a danger to citizen participation in our democracy.” The debate is likely to lead to an examination of the fundamental role of 501(c)(4)s. In seeking comments on the proposed regulation, the Treasury Department asked a broader question: How much should groups set up ostensibly for the “social welfare” of the community get to play in politics? The new rules propose restrictive boundaries on communications to voters close to Election Day, defining ads that mention a candidate or even a political party 60 days before a general election as “campaign-related.” That could severely hamper the ability of advocacy groups to engage in public debate about legislation that comes up during election season, attorneys said. But the language also suggests that issue ads that air outside of that small window would not be viewed as political, which could give groups more leeway to influence campaigns than they have now. The regulation also would make it harder for social welfare groups to shuffle money back and forth — a tactic that has been used by groups on the right to avoid donor disclosure. Some conservatives argue that the entire approach taken in the proposal is flawed. “The IRS should not be in the business of regulating political activity,” said David Keating, president of the Center for Competitive Politics, a conservative legal policy group. “They’re trying to reinvent the wheel. A lot of the activity that they’re trying to describe, the [Federal Election Commission] has already written regulations on.” The regulation still has to go through an extensive public comment period and is expected to change substantially before it is issued in final form. But the debate about the proposal will accelerate the shift of political money into other vehicles, such as private partnerships and forprofit corporations, election law experts said. “The larger story is the migration away from tax-exempt organizations, which I think is picking up steam,” said Robert Kelner, a lawyer specializing in political law. “People have read the tea leaves,” he added. “This is the story of campaign finance reform since the beginning of time: The government is always fighting the last war.”

Guides: Certified through federal government Continued from Page A-1 online applications, and they can help consumers determine how much they can expect to pay for premiums. Herrera and other guides have been busy taking phone calls and fielding visits from people loaded with questions. “A lot of people don’t understand the [insurance cancellation] letters they’re getting and what it means,” Herrera said recently from her La Familia cubicle on Alto Street. “A lot of them are panicked at first.” The guides are certified through the federal government and state insurance companies to help people navigate the new health insurance exchange. They are also called in-person assisters. Herrera is one of 23 guides at four La Familia facilities in Santa Fe. La Familia’s clinics provide medical, dental and behavioral health services and health care for the homeless. La Familia guides are currently taking individual applications for the state’s expanded Medicaid program and helping people explore the federal health exchange. “We see 12 to 20 people a day at the main facility on Alto Street,” said Herrera, 34. They get about the same number of phone calls each day from frustrated people with health exchange questions, she said. Herrera thinks the system will improve with time. “They’re discouraging us right now from

taking personal applications,” she said, adding that applications for Medicaid under the expanded system are “processing very well.” She said people do get frustrated with the new health insurance process. A guide’s job is to try to make the health exchange process less confusing and direct people more quickly to the best possible program or tell them what information they need to have available when they apply. She said a majority of people who call La Familia qualify for the state’s Medicaid program, Centennial Care. Others may qualify for Medicare. Guides also are helping people fill out an online calculator on the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange that can give them an idea how much their premiums will cost. The guides also help with another calculator that determines whether a person qualifies for tax

subsidies to help pay premiums. Debra Hammer, spokeswoman for the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange, said guides have to complete the certification training offered by the federal government before they can enroll individuals for health insurance. And they receive training from insurance companies and other groups as the need arises, she said. “They also meet weekly to discuss any updates, new tools or process adjustments.” The training takes about 20 hours on 26 different modules, Herrera said. “A lot of it was reading and then testing at the end of each module,” she said. “We also have attended events that offered additional training.” New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange call center staff are available to assist people toll-free at 855-99-NMHIX. A list of sites with health care guides is available at bewellnm. com. Insurance brokers also can help with the health insurance exchange. Their services are free. Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico, Lovelace, Molina, New Mexico Health Connections and Presbyterian Healthcare Services all are offering plans through the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange.

Portraits of Kitchen Angels volunteers hang in the entance hall outside the nonprofit’s kitchen on Thursday.

Angels: Hot meals delivered, rain or shine Continued from Page A-1 plex off St. Francis Drive. “I just love seeing the people, talking to them, giving them food that someone else has prepared, making their day,” she said as she drove along her route Thursday. “It doesn’t get any better than this.” Elizabeth has relied on Kitchen Angels for about 20 years. Nearby, residents Robert and Rafalita, who also preferred not to use their last name, welcomed Strittmatter into their small apartment, which they share with a Maltese terrier mix named Princess. Robert said Kitchen Angels has been helping the couple for about seven months. “We’re going through a really rough time,” he said. “My wife is disabled, and I’m unable to work. [Kitchen Angels] really cuts down on our food costs.” Plus, he noted, Kitchen Angels delivers dog food for Princess. The organization works with both The Food Depot and the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society to ensure that clients who cannot get out of their homes manage to receive pet food

for their dogs and cats. Client Josephine Baca gave Strittmatter a big hug when she saw her. And then she gave her another. Baca said Kitchen Angeles provides her with a warm meal every day. Without the help of the group, she said, “It would be hard. Very hard.” Baca said she enjoys visiting with Strittmatter — “She’s my favorite; we have a lot in common.” Strittmatter said she tries to gauge how much personal interaction her clients want. Some wish to visit for a while. Others just open their doors wide enough to receive the meal and say thank you. Strittmatter uses her Subaru Outback, which has four-wheel drive, to make the deliveries, be it rain, sleet, snow or sunshine. Once she finished her Thanksgiving shift, she was heading home to cook for her family, despite the challenges of waking up to a water-main break in her home that morning. “In the big scheme of things, that is not so bad,” she said.

Kitchen Angels is always looking for volunteers and donations of money or food. Volunteers receive a two-hour orientation and usually commit to about two hours a week. Corporate sponsors fund the holiday meal program by committing at least $2,500. This year, Sotheby’s International Reality hosted Thanksgiving, while Los Alamos National Bank has Christmas covered. Tony McCarty, executive director of Kitchen Angels, said Thursday that anyone interested

in volunteering or supporting the organization can call the office at 471-7780 or visit the website at Those who wish to apply for help can also call or visit the website. He said the organization is very lucky to be located in Santa Fe. “In the darkest hour, our supporters always come through,” he said. “If there is a need, hopefully we will be here to meet it.” Contact Robert Nott at 986-3021 or

Holiday: Retailers aim to sync stores and sites Continued from Page A-1 Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy and other bigbox retailers have redesigned their mobile sites, launched new apps and are offering some consumers customized shopping experiences. A slow website may frustrate some shoppers, so retailers designed their pages for speed this year. This approach to online shopping is a turnaround from last year, when big-box stores were still wary of “showrooming” — when customers visit a store and look for cheaper deals using their phones. Now, they are embracing it as a way to drive sales to their own websites, analysts say. Target told its employees to approach customers using smartphones to browse for sales and steer them to the company’s mobile discounts. Early indications show it may be working: As of 6 p.m. EDT Thursday, online sales jumped 10 percent this Thanksgiving, according to IBM Digital Analytics Benchmark. Mobile sales accounted for 23.5 percent of the total. “There’s more opportunity to seize more revenue if you provide a great online experience,” said Steven Dykstra, senior product manager at Compuware APM, a firm that helps retailers measure the performance of their sites and apps and whose clients include Amazon, Target, Sears and Best Buy. Online shopping is growing, and a big chunk

of that growth is from sales made on smartphones and tablets, analysts say. Surveys show that Americans are increasingly using their mobile devices to not just browse, but to make purchases, forcing retailers to pay attention. The average retailer can expect 14 percent of holiday sales to come from mobile devices, according to a report by Adobe Digital Analytics, an increase of 40 percent from a year ago. For some retailers, the share can be as high as 20 to 30 percent, analysts say. That is significant in what is expected to be a lackluster holiday shopping season, analysts said. A short holiday season, lukewarm backto-school sales and budget-conscious shoppers have raised the stakes for retailers, who are expecting a paltry 4 percent increase in sales this year, according to the National Retail Federation. Many opened their doors earlier than ever this year — Toys R Us opened at 5 p.m. Thursday, while Wal-Mart and Best Buy followed an hour later — betting that the traditional Black Friday sales would not attract enough shoppers. Some retailers were offering such deep discounts that they worried it would squeeze profits. Those discounts were enough for Yevette Lindsey, 58, who spent hours waiting outside a Best Buy in the District of Columbia to buy a 55-inch television for her new house, while her husband stayed warm in the car. Lindsey, a retiree, said she didn’t mind coming out on

Thanksgiving Day to shop. “It’s fine with me,” she said. “I give thanks every day.” Shawnna Brown, 24, spent about seven hours perched on a metal chair outside the same store. The second-grade teacher hoped to snag an HP laptop that was discounted by $200. It was Brown’s first time venturing out for a Black Friday sale and she came prepared with a book, a packed lunch and a playlist. “I’m here for the experience,” she said. Tina Zhu, 22, bought all of her holiday gifts online last year, but retailers reserved some deals for their brick-and-mortor stores. So Zhu was first in line outside a Target on Thursday night to pick up an iPad air, which came with a $100 gift card, if you bought it in person. For the consumers reluctant to leave the comforts of home on Thanksgiving, even for a deep discount, retailers are refining their Web strategy. That could make online sales, which are expected to jump 15 percent this year, the bright spot in an otherwise modest holiday season. Chapin Traugott of Arlington, Va. has a Black Friday online shopping strategy already mapped out. “I’ve already bookmarked all the good deals,” she said. Even so, Traugott ventured out to Toys R Us Thursday afternoon for some early deals. “It’s kind of sad to be doing this on Thanksgiving,” said Traugott. “But the ads say 50 percent off — that’s a bigger discount than what you’d get online.”

In Mexico, unsafe cars boost automakers’ profits Few standard safety features on models sold in Latin American markets

on condition of anonymity, citing a confidentiality agreement with the company. Three other engineers who worked with Nissan and GM for four years and are still involved in auto design for other carmakers were interviewed on similar conditions of anonymity, and they confirmed the companies built cars with vastly different safety features depending on where they’d be sold.

By Adriana Gomez Licon Associated Press

RAMOS ARIZPE, Mexico — In Mexico’s booming auto industry, the cars rolling off assembly lines may look identical, but how safe they are depends on where they’re headed. Vehicles destined to stay in Mexico or go south to the rest of Latin America carry a code signifying there’s no need for antilock braking systems, electronic stability control, or more than two air bags, if any, in basic models. If the cars will be exported to the United States or Europe, however, they must meet stringent safety laws, including as many as six to 10 air bags, and stability controls that compensate for slippery roads and other road dangers, say engineers who have worked in Mexicobased auto factories. Because the price of the two versions of the cars is about the same, the dual system buttresses the bottom lines of automakers such as General Motors and Nissan. But it’s being blamed for a surge in auto-related fatalities in Mexico, where laws require virtually no safety protections. “We are paying for cars that are far more expensive and far less safe,” said Alejandro Furas, technical director for Global New Car Assessment Program, or NCAP, a vehicle crash-test group. “Something is very wrong.” In 2011, nearly 5,000 drivers and passengers in Mexico died in accidents, a 58 percent increase since 2001, according to the latest available data from the country’s transportation department. Over the same decade, the U.S. reduced the number of auto-related fatalities by 40 percent. The death rate in Mexico, when comparing fatalities with the size of the car fleet, is more than 3.5 times that of the U.S. Nevertheless, Mexico hasn’t introduced any safety proposals other than general seat belt requirements for its 22 million strong auto fleet. Even then, the laws don’t mandate three-point shoulder belts necessary to secure child safety seats. Brazil and Argentina, on the other hand, have passed laws requiring all vehicles to have dual front air bags and antilock braking systems by next year. An Associated Press investigation this year found that Brazil’s auto plants produce cars aimed at Latin American consumers that lack basic safety features. Like Brazil, Mexico doesn’t run its own crash test facility to rank cars’ safety before they hit the road. Dr. Arturo Cervantes Trejo, director of the Mexican Health

Yet crash test results show exactly what’s being sacrificed for savings. One of Nissan’s most popular models in Mexico, the Tsuru, is so outdated it has only lap seat belts in the back and some versions have no air bags at all. The car is not sold in the U.S. or Europe.

If you haven’t already received a flu vaccination, be sure to discuss it with your doctor. Flu viruses are unpredictable, and every season puts you at risk. As long as flu season isn’t over, it’s not too late to get vaccinated. A stuffy nose, sore throat, and sneezing are usually signs of a cold. Tiredness, fever, headache, and major aches and pains probably mean you have the flu. A trip the Emergency Room is usually not required for either, and you usually do not have to call your doctor right away if you have signs of a cold or flu. However, if you contact your doctor within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms of the flu – perhaps they can start a medication that might be of benefit to reduce the severity and length of the flu illness. Your doctor may also give that medication at a slightly different dose to your close household contacts to help prevent the spread of the flu virus. They would have to take a nasal swab to prove that you are influenza positive first. The best treatment of a cold or the flu is to avoid it in the first place. Precautions you can take include washing your hands often, avoiding people with colds when possible, and sneezing or coughing into a tissue.

Stuck at Vatican, pope reaches those in need via almoner Francis transforms centuries-old post to provide hands-on acts of charity By Nicole Winfield The Associated Press

VATICAN CITY — When he was archbishop of Buenos Aires, Pope Francis was known to sneak out at night and break bread with the homeless, sit with them literally on the street and eat with them, as part of his aim to share the plight of the poor and let them know someone cared. That’s not so easy to do now that he’s pope. But Francis is still providing one-on-one doses of emergency assistance to the poor, sick and aged through a trusted archbishop. Konrad Krajewski is the Vatican Almoner, a centuries-old job of handing out alms — and Francis has ramped up the job to make it a hands-on extension of his own personal charity. As Americans gathered for Thanksgiving on Thursday, Krajewski described how Francis has redefined the little known office of papal almoner and explained the true meaning of giving during a chat with journalists near the Vatican gates. “The Holy Father told me at the beginning: ‘You can sell your desk. You don’t need it. You need to get out of the Vatican. Don’t wait for people to come ringing. You need to go out and look for the poor,’ ” Krajewski said. Krajewski gets his marching orders each morning: A Vatican gendarme goes from the Vatican hotel where Francis lives to Krajewski’s office across the Vatican gardens, bringing a bun-

The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — The blob lives. It’s big, it oozes, it’s disgusting, and this Thanksgiving, it could be lurking in your house. It’s created in the kitchen, with too much used cooking grease poured down too many drains. And this time of year, the blob grows bigger and more fearsome than ever. During the holiday, kitchen pipes are stuffed with more grease, food and fats than any time of the year. Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is a yearly bonanza for retailers — and plumbers. “When you work for RotoRooter, everybody knows you don’t get the day off,” said Paul Abrams, spokesman for the Roto-Rooter plumbing company. “It’s the one day you don’t ask off. Black Friday, it’s all hands on deck.” In every state, Abrams said, Roto-Rooter’s army of 7,000 employees gears up for a 50 percent increase in service calls from people with clogged sinks, overflowing toilets and drains that don’t work because warm grease cooled in pipes overnight and turned into a blob. “It’s kind of akin to someone having a heart attack,” Abrams said. The problem isn’t solved when plumbers blast grease down the drain using their special know-how and tools. It slips into the sewers, where it grows into a bigger, greasier menace. “We are facing a looming crisis in terms of our water infrastructure,” said Adam Krantz, managing director of governmental affairs for the National Association of Clean Water Agencies. “We are seeing some pipes and treatment systems nearing the end of their useful lives.” Old pipes plus Thanksgiving equals disaster, said Chuck White, a vice president for the Plumbing Heating Cooling and Contractors Association. “The thing about Thanksgiving is it’s really about the biggest feast we Americans cook for the year,” he said. It’s also a feast for the garbage disposal. People tend to overload them “and hope it goes away,” White said. Then comes the residual grease. Down in the cold drain, hardening at 50 to 55 degrees, it turns into the sticky blob, catching all other food products and plugging everything.

The amounts given out aren’t high: Recently Krajewski sent a check for $270 to an elderly woman from Venice who wrote to Francis lamenting that a pickpocket had stolen $75 from her. “Being an almoner, it has to cost me something so that it can change me,” he said. He contrasted such alms-giving with, say, the unnamed cardinal who once boasted about always giving two euros to a beggar on the

U.S. must remember Afghan women

Shopping starts now — or does it?

Trudy Rubin The Philadelphia Inquirer


t a recent Georgetown University symposium, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Laura Bush and John Kerry all urged Americans not to abandon Afghan women after U.S. troops exit next year. Their pleas were emotional. Bush, who, together with Clinton, has taken up the cause of Afghan women, said she feared that “once the troops leave, American eyes will move away. I want the people of Afghanistan to know the people of America are with them.” Secretary of State Kerry recalled the anxiety he has heard from Afghan women who have “legitimate concerns that the gains of the past decade could be lost.” “We have to be determined that they will not stand alone,” he said firmly. Admirable sentiments. But given public weariness with aid to Afghanistan, there’s no guarantee that Congress — or other international donors — will keep funding projects for Afghan women after 2014. Those who care about this issue — and no other Afghan topic has aroused more genuine concern among Americans than the situation of women — must look for other ways to support them. That means raising funds and donating to nongovernmental organization that work with women on the ground in Afghanistan. I have some groups to suggest, including Aid Afghanistan for Education (www.aid It is headed by the dynamic Hassina Sherjan, who spoke last week at the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia. Her organization runs 13 schools in nine provinces for older girls and women, including returning refugees who lost out on education during Afghanistan’s

P years of turmoil and are not accepted in the regular school system. But first a look at where things stand for Afghan girls and women now. Under the Taliban, almost no Afghan girls were in official schools, but 2.4 million were supposedly studying by 2011. Over the last decade, U.S. aid money has flowed into schools and education, and in Afghan cities, women flock to universities. I have met brave Afghan women who run shelters for battered women, campaign for human rights, and serve in parliament, where male members mostly ignore them. Yet the struggle for women’s rights in Afghanistan — and education for girls and women — is still in its infancy. Female government officials have been murdered and kidnapped. Girls’ education is under serious threat in southern and eastern provinces where the Taliban has made a comeback. There is a woeful shortage of female teachers. Skittish parents keep girls home when security is dicey, and female illiteracy is still sky high. Last week, Kerry thought he had negotiated a bilateral security pact that would have kept a few thousand U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan

after 2014 as trainers and enablers — and as symbols that the West won’t forget the country. But Afghan President Hamid Karzai suddenly announced a delay in signing the agreement. Without that international presence, many Afghans fear a greater Taliban resurgence and an end to Western aid. This uncertainty about the future of Western governmental support is why the work of NGOs is so essential, especially for Afghan women. Sherjan, who grew up in Afghanistan and came to America as a young refugee, is determined to keep her organization going, whatever happens. However, with the U.S. Agency for International Development shrinking or ending its grants, she has been unable in recent months to pay her 256 teachers. Sherjan hopes that Congress will reconsider the need to aid NGOs such as hers during the coming transition period. In the meantime, she is trying to start a movement for peace through education, in which U.S. partners will help Afghan women whether or not U.S. troops all leave. Having spent time as a writer-in-residence at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania, and lectured at Lehigh University and other liberal

arts colleges in the area, she has encouraged students to start clubs through which they will contact Afghan students by video conferencing. Hopefully, the U.S. students can raise grass-roots interest and donations to help keep her schools afloat. There are other NGOs with a record of helping Afghan women to whom one can donate. Among them are Women for Women International, Care International, Save the Children, the Central Asia Institute, Women for Afghan Women, Afzenda and the Linda Norgrove Foundation. Given the uncertainty about America’s future role, those who care about Afghan women should look for innovative ways to help them, such as student exchanges, scholarships, or professional training. Sherjan, who traveled to Kabul in 1999 under the Taliban and set up five underground schools for girls, has chosen to take matters into her own hands again — through grassroots fundraising. Americans moved by the sight of brave Afghan schoolgirls risking Taliban wrath should join her cause. Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial-board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.


College should look into past spending practices


egarding Santa Fe Community College President Ana Guzmán, the article (“Looking for answers,” Nov. 20) mentioned that one of her defenders said Guzmán wanted “to look deeper into the school’s finances.” This sounds like a good idea, since her predecessor couldn’t spend money fast enough on questionable projects. Why, for example, did the previous administration purchase expensive new furniture for nearly every room on campus, even where the old furniture was perfectly adequate? Why is there expensive new tile in many public areas that makes for a much noisier environment than the perfectly good, sound-absorbing carpeting that was there before? Why are there thousands of dollars worth of fancy electronic equipment in almost every classroom? Our recent property tax bills include a 2.456 percent levy earmarked for SFCC operations, plus a 0.929 percent SFCC building levy that easily add hundreds of dollars each year. ¡Basta ya! H. W.

Sidewalks and snow If you are a driver, it is wonderful that the streets get plowed because we are a society that has to drive everywhere. But if you a walker, navigating the ice blocks and deep snow pushed on to the sidewalks, then it is another story. I suggest the snow plow operators walk to the store or restaurant along the sidewalks they have buried. Maybe there are techniques that could reduce this pile-up. And the businesses along these roads could do more to remove the snow from in front of their stores and malls. It might help sales. Clark Zrakovi

cake. Parents were shouting, “Take out his ACL!” and “Give them a concussion!” Meanwhile, Robertson players began using racial slurs against two of our biracial athletes! That kind of behavior is intolerable. I realize that there was a lot riding on this game and emotions were flying high, but I am disgusted that both players and parents would bring themselves down to that level. As the saying goes, “The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree.” When you have parents behaving like this, what do you expect from their children? Shame on you, Robertson Cardinals.

eople can rail against the commercialization of Christmas from now until the farolitos are lit on Christmas Eve, but truth be told, Christmas in the United States is a secular holiday about buying stuff — most of which we don’t need and often don’t want. No matter how many times people attempt to refocus the holiday on its roots, the birth of a child in a manger and his promise for the world, we fall short. Who can even hold to the Christmas spirit, considering decorations have been up in the stores since before Halloween, and Black Friday is now a weeklong celebration of consumption, with CyberMonday just around the corner? For thoughtful Christians, of course, one way to stay true to the spirit of this most holy season is to remember that before Christmas comes Advent. That season of waiting for the light to return starts on Sunday. Christmas doesn’t arrive until Christmas Eve, continuing until the Wise Men find the Christ child. Many people who mark the Advent season do not even erect a Christmas tree until Christmas Eve proper, its beauty all the sweeter for the waiting. For more secular Americans and less traditional Christians, there are many ways to celebrate this time of year without succumbing to greed and debt. Experiences, of course, rather than things — a night at The Nutcracker or a rousing rendition of The Messiah or an evening at Las Posadas. Simply spending time together, in this rushed world, is a gift. There’s baking or cooking with family, remembering stories and creating new memories, and best of all, passing traditions along to a new generation. And of course, there is shopping. People have needs and wants and exchanging presents can — and should — be joyful. Commercialism shouldn’t rob us of the pleasure of finding a wonderful gift for that special someone. Today, of course, is that day when stores open early and stay open late, all for shoppers intent on finding that one big deal. We find Black Friday a good day to head to the woods, whether for skiing or simply to take in the still of near-winter in the mountains. Breathing our clear, cold air is the best antidote for commercialism there is. On Saturday, though, there is good reason to go shopping. It’s the annual Small Business Saturday, a time to remember local businesses, owned and operated by our friends and neighbors. Money spent in town, stays in town, recirculating in the form of taxes and salaries. Our local businesses are the people who donate to the band fundraising drive or to help someone pay for surgery. They are good sources of unique, special gifts, whether for family here or around the country. One of our favorite local organizations, the Southwestern Association for Indian Arts, hosts Winter Indian Market this weekend — so it’s the perfect opportunity to shop downtown, both in brick-and-mortar businesses and with local artists who are selling one-of-kind pieces (Market takes place at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center on Saturday and Sunday). A handmade gift is the best. This year, we’re missing one of our favorite markers — Winter Spanish Market moved to Albuquerque; it is taking place today and Saturday at Hotel Albuquerque. We hope the artists do well, but return to Santa Fe in 2014. This Black Friday, remain thankful for so many blessings — and spend some of those blessings close to home, with local merchants and artists, so our community continues to prosper.

Pete The Cat children’s picture book creator James Dean looks at the first portrait of Pete in his self-published 2006 book titled The Misadventures of Pete the Cat at his home in Savannah, Ga. PHOTOS BY STEPHEN MORTON/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Pete the Cat makes leap from folk art to children’s books By Russ Bynum

The Associated Press

SAVANNAH, Ga. ete the Cat lived in a cage at a Georgia animal shelter. He was scrawny and black, not exactly what artist James Dean was looking for in a new pet. “I really didn’t want a black cat because I thought they were bad luck,” Dean recalled roughly 15 years later at his Savannah home, where Pete’s yellow eyes stare from a large painting on the wall. “But he was the only one that wanted to play. He was sticking his paw out and wanting to play with me. So I took him home.” As thousands of children could tell you by reciting the moral of Pete’s first published tale, it was all good. The real Pete wandered away from home, never to be seen again, after living with Dean for about a year. But Pete has stuck around as Dean’s artistic muse since 1999, not long after Dean quit his job as an electrical engineer so he could paint full time. First, Dean painted Pete curled atop his vintage Volkswagen bug and drinking from the toilet. Soon he had Pete driving the car. And drinking coffee. And playing electric guitar. It was this version of Pete the Cat, with his unflappably cool hooded gaze, that made the leap in a few years from folksy paintings selling for $500 apiece at art fairs to children’s books that clawed their way up the best-seller lists. Since HarperCollins published Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes by Dean and writer Eric Litwin in 2010, the series of picture books and illustrated storybooks have sold more than 3.5 million copies and spent more than 180 weeks on The New York Times best-seller list. Pete’s sales numbers are expected to keep climbing. In October, the publisher released the latest two books: Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses and Pete the Cat: The First Thanksgiving. This time the artist’s wife, Kimberly Dean, served as co-author for the first time. The new creative partnership between the spouses meant more to the Deans than fans might realize. About five years after James Dean started painting Pete, the couple tried collaborating on a children’s book not long after they were married. It turned out to be painful for both of them. “Kim and I sat down at the kitchen table in 2004 and we were going write a children’s book together, you know,” Dean said. “It just seemed that we were going do it in about an hour. In my mind anyway.” But something wasn’t working. The words and story that

Kimberly Dean tried to match to her husband’s artwork didn’t click with him. The couple gave up after that first failed attempt. As Dean’s paintings of Pete became better known around Atlanta, others approached him with storybook pitches. Nobody seemed like a worthy collaborator until Dean had a chance meeting with Litwin at a traffic light. They didn’t know each other. Dean was idling at a stoplight in an old Chevy with Pete painted on the door. Litwin walked up and said, “I just recorded a song for you, and I want to send it to you.” Dean gave the stranger his email address. By the time the artist got home, “I Love My White Shoes” was waiting in his inbox. The lyrics of Litwin’s song became the text of the first Pete the Cat book. Dean felt the attitude fit his character perfectly. In the book, Pete walks down the street with sneakers on all four paws, singing about how he loves his white shoes. Then he stomps through a mound of strawberries, staining his sneakers. But instead of fretting, Pete sings about loving his new red shoes. More color changes follow. Pete goes with the flow until water finally washes his shoes back to their original white. “That was one thing about Eric,” Dean said. “He was able to write Pete the Cat.” Dean and Litwin self-published the book in 2007. Dean took half their 7,000 copies to sell at weekend art festivals. Litwin sold copies at schools, where he performed songs and stories. A friend who owned a bookstore promised to show White Shoes to publishers. Still, Dean was stunned when he got a publishing offer on his 51st birthday, in 2008. HarperCollins released White Shoes two years later. Litwin and Dean cranked out three more Pete books with similar messages, encouraging readers to keep cool when facing challenges. Their run ended with Pete the Cat Saves Christmas, published in fall 2012. The Deans, who moved to Savannah from metro Atlanta over the summer, are already working on the next Pete book. James Dean said he’s not worried about how the books fare commercially. He points to a painting in his upstairs studio of a typically unflustered Pete riding a surfboard while a shark closes in. “I ask people, ‘What’s going to happen to Pete?’ ” Dean said. “Most people say, ‘Well, Pete’s going to be all right.’ ”

Sunny weather draws crowds on opening day By Robert Nott The New Mexican

While many people no doubt stayed indoors to prepare Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, both Ski Santa Fe and the Taos Ski Valley reported that a lot of other people hit the slopes. Both resorts officially opened Thanksgiving Day. Candy DeJoia, a spokeswoman for Ski Santa Fe, said by phone Thursday afternoon that “it was a great opening day” at the basin, with a 27-inch base of snow and nearly every trail open. She said the resort expected to have opening-day numbers by Friday morning. Only the resort’s Chipmunk Corner — for beginners and children — remained closed, she said. Asked about temperatures on the slopes, DeJoia said, “I saw people taking off their coats. We’re about 10 degrees colder than downtown Santa Fe; it was warmer than freezing up here.” Downtown, temperatures were in the mid-40s for much of the day. Erik Thompson, assistant marketing director for the Taos Ski Valley, said preliminary estimates put the number of opening-day visits somewhere between 1,000 and 2,000 skiers. “I know that is a broad range, but it was probably the best opening day I can remember in the [six] years I’ve worked here. Everything went flawlessly. We had great crowds,” he said. He said the snow base was about 34 inches, and the temperature Thursday was about 27 degrees. Most of the resort was open, he said, though there were no lifts running on the back side of the resort.

Quilter Irene Padilla helps warm bodies, spirits of those in need By Kay Lockridge

For The New Mexican


rene Padilla comes from a family of quilt makers, and she began creating her own when she was 5. Later, she started sharing her quilted blankets with family and friends, and then she realized that while everyone needs blankets, not everyone has one. It’s been said that good friends are like quilts in that they age with you, yet never lose their warmth. Padilla, one of The New Mexican’s 2013 10 Who Made a Difference, has taken that to heart and has created hundreds, probably thousands, of her quilted blankets over the past 20 years for people she considers friends but will never know. “It’s from here,” said Padilla, 82, pointing to her heart. “I really, really enjoy doing this, and I will continue as long as my health permits.” Padilla was nominated for 10 Who Made a Difference by friend and fellow quilter Lucille Leyba, who said Padilla “comes through every year, her concern and love warm not only the bodies but the spirits of the countless [numbers] who would otherwise be cold. Her dedication does not make the headlines, but Irene’s time and effort make a big difference to the men, women and children who receive her warm gifts.” Padilla has been donating blankets to St. Elizabeth Shelter for 20 years. Leyba noted that “most take the quilts when they leave; they mean so much to them and need them.” Padilla also supplies the Ronald McDonald House in Albuquerque with quilts. Her relationship with Ronald McDonald began 17 years ago, when her granddaughter had a liver transplant in Tucson, Ariz., and her family used the local Ronald McDonald lodgings. Her blankets, with varying patterns determined by the types of materials she is using and by her imagination as she sews, come in double, twin and baby size; the latter is especially needed at the Ronald McDonald facility. Often, the size of a blanket depends on how much material she has bought or collected for the project. If she has several yards of cloth, a blanket will take her about half a day to complete; a blanket will take longer to make if she has small amounts of cloth and must keep stitching them together. It’s through a quest for cloth that Padilla met Leyba. Padilla had been buying all her materials for good prices at local shops, but she recently began contacting friends and organizations for

donated cloth. One of her sources for donations is The New Mexican’s weekly Otra Vez: Trash to Treasures page. Padilla spends much of her time quilting in her “special” room, which was added on to her house 15 years ago by her sons — Tommy, Jimmy, Ricky and Danny. The room — warm and inviting — contains all the materials for her blankets, an antique sewing machine, many potted plants in varying stages of blooming on a table in the middle of the room (Padilla also has a green thumb), and religious and Spanish Colonial objects and art made for her by friends and family members. There’s also a small laun-

dry room to make her effort easier. Padilla and her husband, Tommy, have been married 62 years. He worked with the New Mexico Game and Fish Department for 36 years before retiring. The couple have five children, including their four sons who are scattered in Chicago, Los Alamos, Arizona and Washington. Their daughter, Carla, lives with the Padillas and is working on an advanced degree in nursing at The University of New Mexico. Carla Padilla also sews, as does Irene Padilla’s granddaughter, Amalia.

An Arkansas business consultant is citing religious principles in his challenge of an effort by investors to oust cabin owners from a conference center southeast of Santa Fe. Several Texas investors, through a corporation called Glorieta 2.0, recently acquired most of the property for $1 from LifeWay Christian Resources, a Southern Baptist Conference group that has run the LifeWay Glorieta Conference Center since the 1950s. The Texas group plans to hold Christian summer camps on the property. One of its first objectives after purchasing the center was to phase out leases with 60 churches and individuals who have built lodges and cabins on a section of the property over the last 60 years. Leaseholders, some renting year to year, were offered three options: donate their properties now to Glorieta 2.0; sell for $30 a square foot, for up to $100,000; or lease for another 12 years at $1,800 a year, and then turn over the property. Kirk Tompkins, who has had a cabin at the Glorieta center for about 50 years and works as a business consultant in Little Rock, Ark., sued in

Continued from Page B-1 U.S. District Court on Sept. 4, seeking to block the sale and proposed evictions of those who declined to take one of the options offered by Glorieta 2.0. He and his wife, Susie Tompkins, are among those facing eviction. The 26-page petition names more than 115 defendants, including the board members of all organizations involved. The complaint alleges LifeWay has engaged in “rogue activities” to amass some $11 billion while ignoring its directive from the Southern Baptist Conference to “assist churches through the operation of conference centers and camps.” Tompkins charges in an email to his supporters that LifeWay has instead chosen to donate, for a nominal sum, about 2,000 acres and dozens of buildings, valued at more than $150 million, to a “non-Baptist company” led by “multi-billionaire David Weekley.” A spokesman for Weekley and the other investors, who run Camp Eagle near Rocksprings, Texas, described the group as “nondenominational Christians.” On Nov. 21, after more than 100 documents had been filed in court, Tompkins faced nine lawyers for the defendants at a hearing before U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert Hayes Scott in Albuquerque. Scott imposed a temporary stay. Tompkins said later that Scott gave the parties two weeks to submit other information. “We felt a strong presence of the Holy Spirit during the Hearing, bringing our points of truth to the Court,” Tomp-

kins writes in an email to his supporters. “My secretary (Drew) and I, along with The Holy Spirit, faced off with eight men and one female at the Defendants table, with Defendants holding onto their main point, that the entire matter was internal to the Religious Organization; therefore the Court had no jurisdiction!” In another email, Thompkins says there was a “prayer warrior” at the hearing, a man who attends the same church as one of the lawyers for the defendants. During a break, Thompkins says, the man asked the lawyer, “When did you sell your soul to the Devil?” LifeWay has sought to dismiss the case by arguing that Tompkins’ allegations should have been filed in state court. His claims that LifeWay or Glorieta 2.0 has committed fraud or is treating the defendants unfairly appear to arise from state laws, not federal ones, the organization says. The main lawyer for LifeWay in the case, Emil Kiehne of the Modrall, Sperling, Roehl, Harris & Sisk firm in Albuquerque, said Wednesday he could not comment beyond this written statement: “LifeWay disagrees and disputes and is disappointed with the statements and allegations by Mr. Tompkins, but since the matter is still in litigation, LifeWay has no further comment at this time beyond the documents that have been filed with the court.” Contact Tom Sharpe at 986-3080 or tsharpe@

Colorado is state where gun ownership is a treasured right, but also the site of two mass shootings that prompted Second Amendment questions. Last summer’s shootings at a movie theater in Aurora and the 1999 Columbine High School shootings were never far from Colorado’s gun debate, with relatives of victims of both massacres frequently appearing at the state Capitol to push for gun control laws.

Tribes In brief address Santa Fe police to hold ‘Black Friday blitz’ diabetes struggle Tech center receives By Jim Mimiaga

Cortez (Colo.) Journal

TOWAOC, Colo. — From Cortez to Shiprock, Durango to Monticello, Utah, Native Americans sit in hospitals and health centers receiving kidney dialysis at a higher rate than non-Indians. That is the uncomfortable truth of ignoring the diabetes epidemic the Ute Mountain Tribe is battling every day, reports Rita King, manager of the tribe’s Diabetes Prevention Program. The Utes and Navajos recently hosted a two-day education conference on diabetes in Towaoc. “It has been frustrating getting those at risk and those with the disease to change their ways,” King says. “The disease is reversible, our people are aware of the problem, so we have done a good job there. But it is the action of individuals to take responsibility for their health, that is much tougher.” To date, 247 Ute Mountain tribal members people have either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, representing 11 percent of the 2,100-member tribe. And what is alarming is that 10- and 11-yearolds are being diagnosed with prediabetic conditions, King said. “I’d call it a crisis,” she said. “We don’t beat around the bush, telling the kids dialysis, chronic sickness or an early death is where you will end up if you ignore nutrition and exercise. But a lot of our people are still in denial.” Charlene Begay, coordinator for Diabetes Awareness for the Navajo tribe estimates 20 percent, or 60,000 are afflicted, of the 300,000 population. “Natives are predisposed to the disease because they do not have that history and tolerance to processed, sugary and fatty foods like European stock has,” she explained. “Going back to our native diet is great, but it does not resonate with kids. Getting them active and eating well at an early age is our goal.” The Ute tribe pulls out all the stops with kids. Prevention education, scare tactics, nutrition, label-reading training, portion control, exercise and physiology are all topics drilled into the heads of the younger generation, says Radona Tom, events coordinator for the diabetic program. “We do all we can. We show them the awful prop of what fat looks like in your body,” she says. “Then we say this is what will happen if you keep playing video games, have them put on progressively heavier fat jackets and then do calisthenics. The key is to keep up the message year to year, each generation. It takes time.” But it pays off, Tom says. “I lost 100 pounds and cured myself,” she said. Just having fun with kids is an effective approach. Every Wednesday afternoon, child care providers host kick ball, basketball and soon Lacrosse —an original Native American sport — at the tribal recreation center. Lena Guerito, a Navajo Tribe nutritionist, says encouraging new mothers to breast feed is the first step for conditioning a newborn. “When you look into formula, there are a lot of processed ingredients in there,” she said. Using blue corn or wheat flour in fry bread, a favorite Navajo food, helps, Guerito tells a group. And so does returning to indigenous diets like squash, juniper, wild banana plant and kneel down bread. “Getting back to the garden is another campaign, controlling our food supply so we don’t depend on packaged, fatty choices at restaurants and in stores,” Guerito said. In the end, we can all learn from Beverly Lehi, a Towaoc resident who has become a popular inspiration as she takes weekly runs from town to Woodies Convenience store and back, an eight-mile trek. At first it was hard, but Lehi took it slow. She advises Utes to not get discouraged. Begin by just walking every day, which for her led to a running pace. “I just started feeling better and better, and now I can’t wait for my run,” she says. “You notice how beautiful it is outside, my mind is clearer, and I lost 20 pounds. The alternative is insulin shots, and I hate shots.”

Santa Fe police are planning an aggressive crackdown on “Black Friday” crime. City officials say extra officers will be working overtime Friday to patrol malls, popular retail stores and Santa Fe’s historic Plaza. Authorities say officers, including those working undercover, will be looking for suspicious activity in an attempt to prevent burglaries and shoplifting. There will also be undisclosed DWI checkpoints and saturation patrols throughout the weekend.

supplies last. The permits will be sold at the Valle Grande Staging Area from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday until the day before Christmas. The cutting area is about 12 miles from the staging area, and officials are recommending high-clearance vehicles. Officials say all proceeds from the sale of trees and cutting permits will support the preserve.

Council will introduce as early as next month. Berry made the announcement at a Wednesday news conference. The Albuquerque Journal reported that Berry said passing the ban should be a “no-brainer” for councilors. The proposal makes selling the devices to minors a misdemeanor that could land violators in jail for 90 days and merit a $500 fine. E-cigarettes deliver nicotine without burning tobacco. Santa Fe is considering a similar ban, and some state lawmakers have discussed banning sales to minors statewide.

Albuquerque set to settle in brutality suit ALBUQUERQUE — The lawyer for man who filed a police brutality lawsuit against Albuquerque police after his jaw was broken in an encounter with officers says the city has agreed to settle the case by paying him $60,000.

Keeping you Healthy and Happy this Holiday Season Now that the flu and cold season is upon us, CHRISTUS St. Vincent is encouraging members of the community to take extra precautions to avoid contracting a cold or the flu.

Know When To Call Your Doctor

Christiane Sanburn, M.D.

As a Primary Care Physician with CHRISTUS St. Vincent DeVargas Health Center, I share with my patients every day that anyone can become sick with the flu and experience serious complications. Older people, young children, pregnant women and people with medical conditions like asthma, diabetes, heart disease, or kidney disease are at especially high risk from the flu. Even kids, teens and adults who are active and healthy can get the flu and become very ill from it. If you haven’t already received a flu vaccination, be sure to discuss it with your doctor. Flu viruses are unpredictable, and every season puts you at risk. As long as flu season isn’t over, it’s not too late to get vaccinated. A stuffy nose, sore throat, and sneezing are usually signs of a cold. Tiredness, fever, headache, and major aches and pains probably mean you have the flu. A trip the Emergency Room is usually not required for either, and you usually do not have to call your doctor right away if you have signs of a cold or flu. However, if you contact your doctor within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms of the flu – perhaps they can start a medication that might be of benefit to reduce the severity and length of the flu illness. Your doctor may also give that medication at a slightly different dose to your close household contacts to help prevent the spread of the flu virus. They would have to take a nasal swab to prove that you are influenza positive first. The best treatment of a cold or the flu is to avoid it in the first place. Precautions you can take include washing your hands often, avoiding people with colds when possible, and sneezing or coughing into a tissue.

SPORTS Denver to welcome back Fox Monday Broncos head coach to return to work after open-heart surgery By Arnie Stapleton The Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Jack Del Rio had a big Thanksgiving Day surprise for his team. John Fox joined the players and coaches for their post-practice huddle on the football field Thursday. Amid hails, hugs and handshakes, he told them how thankful he was for John Fox his health, their hard work and his good friend Del Rio for running things while he was recovering from openheart surgery. “I believe there couldn’t have been a better message on a better day,” safety David Bruton said. Of course, Fox also took the opportunity to do some coaching, imploring his players to focus on beating Kansas City this weekend so that when he officially returns to work Monday, he’ll have a first-place team awaiting him. It hasn’t been determined whether Fox will coach from the sideline or the booth for his first game back, when the Broncos host the Tennessee Titans on Dec. 8. The team issued a statement Thursday saying that “while no formal restrictions will be placed on his workload upon his return, he will continue to be monitored by our medical staff as his well-

Kansas tops Wake Forest The Associated Press

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas — Andrew Wiggins scored 12 of his 17 points in the second half, and No. 2 Kansas moved into the Kansas 87 semifinals of the WakeForest 78 Battle 4 Atlantis, downing previously unbeaten Wake Forest 87-78 on Thursday. Frank Mason scored 12 points, and Joel Embild added 10 for the Jayhawks (5-0), who had a 14-point halftime lead trimmed to four before hanging on in the final minutes. Kansas will play Villanova on Friday night for a spot in the title game. Codi Miller-McIntyre scored 20 of his 26 points in the second half for Wake Forest (5-1). The Demon Deacons held Kansas to a season-low 47 percent from the field, but lost forward Devin Thomas after he was ejected for two technical fouls with 7:28 remaining. Tyler Cavanaugh scored 11 points, while Madison Jones and Coron Williams each had 10 for Wake Forest. When Thomas got ejected, Kansas’ Conner Frankamp made three of the four free throws to put the Jayhawks up 64-52. And when Wiggins, who was largely silent offensively for the first 35 minutes, made a 3-pointer for a 68-57 lead, the overwhelmingly proKU crowd might have sensed that Wake’s upset bid had run dry. The Demon Deacons had other ideas. Miller-McIntyre kept attacking, and his 3-pointer with just under 2 minutes left got Wake Forest within 77-72. Desperately needing a stop, Wake Forest wound up losing Arnaud Adala Moto to his fifth foul when he got in Wiggins’ way on a drive with 38 seconds left.

Murray, Dunbar set stage for second-half rally over Oakland By Schuyler Dixon The Associated Press

ARLINGTON, Texas ony Romo was sick, and it wasn’t because he had just watched the Oakland Raiders return a fumble for a touchdown on the opening kickoff. After the Dallas quarterback caught a virus the night before Thanksgiving, his top two running backs were there to help out. DeMarco Murray ran for three touchdowns, backup Lance Dunbar led Dallas with a career-


high 82 yards rushing, and the Cowboys overcame the shock of Oakland’s early score to beat the Raiders 31-24 Thursday. Romo still did his part. He was behind 7-0 before taking his first snap, and his offense didn’t have a yard in the second quarter when he took the field down 21-7 with less than 2 minutes remaining before halftime. Five completions from Romo later, Murray scored on a 4-yard run 10 seconds before halftime and set the stage for a second-half rally that put the Cowboys (7-5) two games above .500 for the first time since late last season. Dallas is at least temporarily ahead of Philadelphia (6-5) atop the NFC East. “To have the opening kickoff fumbled and returned for a touchdown and then be down

Lions running back Reggie Bush fumbles during the first quarter of Thursday’s game against Green Bay at Ford Field in Detroit. Detroit scored 37 straight points to rout Green Bay 40-10 on Thursday. DUANE BURLESON/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Lions pounce on Green Bay Detroit overcomes shaky start to score 37 straight points, take division lead By Larry Lage

The Associated Press


DETROIT atthew Stafford and Reggie Bush did their part to keep the Aaron Rodgers-less Green Bay Packers in the

game. Stafford turned the ball over a few times, and Bush did once. Instead of crumbling and losing confidence, both players bounced back and helped the Detroit Lions put together a dominant performance after an awful start. Stafford threw three touchdown passes, including one to Calvin Johnson, Bush had 182 yards of offense and scored, and Detroit scored 37 straight points to rout Green Bay 40-10 on Thursday. “When we get out of our own way, we can be pretty special,” Bush said. Early on, it looked as if the Lions were going to find another way to waste chances to win a game and take control of the NFC North. “It’s easy when you lose a couple games in a row, particularly the fashion that we

lost, for people to say, ‘Here we go again,’ ” Detroit coach Jim Schwartz said. “I’m sure there were some people that were saying that, but they weren’t on our sideline.” The Lions (7-5) had lost their last two games, five consecutive against Green Bay and a franchise-record nine straight in their annual showcase on Thanksgiving. “It’s a step in the right direction for us,” Stafford said. “I’m sure the turkey will taste better.” The Packers (5-6-1) have a five-game winless streak for the first time since 2008. “We’re not used to anything like this — not on this team,” Green Bay linebacker A.J. Hawk said. “This is something that is going to make a lot of guys on this team think, and that’s good. We need to find some answers because they just ran the ball down our throats.” Bush responded from fumbling deep in Green Bay territory to score a 1-yard TD run that gave Detroit a 17-10 lead late in the first half. He finished with 117 yards rushing and 65 yards receiving. Bush’ backup, Joique Bell, ran for a career-high 94 yards and a score. The Packers, painfully, are finding out how valuable Rodgers is for the franchise. Rodgers has missed four-plus games since fracturing his left collarbone. Green Bay has tied one and lost four without him.

“We’re a wounded team that got drilled by a good football team,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. Matt Flynn became the fourth starting quarterback for Green Bay this year and was sacked seven times, once by Ndamukong Suh for a safety. Flynn didn’t fare as well as he did in his last start for Green Bay against the same opponent. He was 10 of 20 for 139 yards with an interception and two fumbles. In the last game of the 2011 regular season, while Rodgers rested for the playoffs, Flynn threw for 480 yards and six TDs in a 45-41 win over Detroit. “They might have a lot of the same guys, but I can say they’re a different defense,” Flynn said. “They’re flying around, creating havoc.” The Packers have been leaning on rookie running back Eddie Lacy lately, but he was limited to 16 yards on 10 carries against one of the NFL’s best defenses against the run. Detroit was balanced on offense. Johnson had six receptions for 101 yards and a 20-yard TD to put the Lions up 24-10 early in the third quarter. He has 4,944 yards receiving in two-plus seasons, breaking Jerry Rice’s NFL record for yards receiving in a three-year stretch. Rice had 4,850 yards receiving from 1993 to 1995.

Dallas: Raiders finish with 50 rushing yards Continued from Page B-5 replay showed Williams’ knee hitting the turf just as the ball was coming out. Matt McGloin, an undrafted rookie quarterback making his third career start, had a strong first half for the Raiders. But without much help from the league’s fifth-best rushing attack, his offense stalled in the second half as Oakland (4-8) clinched an 11th straight season without a winning record since going to the Super Bowl during the 2002 season. Rashad Jennings rushed for 35 yards on 17 carries — a 2.1-yard average — and had both of Oakland’s offensive touchdowns. Darren McFadden carried just five times for 13 yards in his return after missing three games with a hamstring injury.

The Raiders finished with 50 yards rushing — 1 more than their season low — while the Cowboys came with the league’s 29th-ranked rushing offense and had 144 yards on the ground, their second-best total of the year. “The game boiled down to, in the second half we wore down,” said Raiders coach Dennis Allen, the league’s youngest head coach making his first appearance near the Dallas suburb of Hurst, where he grew up. “They were able to run the ball and we weren’t able to get off the field.” Murray had just 25 yards after his third TD, but ran for another 38 to help Dallas burn the clock with a seven-point lead in the fourth quarter. Most of the late damage came on a drive to Dan Bailey’s 19-yard field goal to put Dallas up by

10 with 1:56 left. Murray, who tied the score at 7-all on a 2-yard run the first play after a fumble by McGloin late in the first quarter, also had 39 yards receiving. “I was just playing like I always play,” Murray said. “I’m not worried about anything else. I’m just doing the best I can do and trying to help this team win.” Dunbar, who went out with a left knee sprain in the fourth quarter, sparked the tying and go-ahead touchdown drives in the second half, highlighted by a 45-yard run that led to a 4-yard scoring pass from Romo to Dez Bryant, who had seven catches for 61 yards. McGloin, who was 18 of 30 for 255 yards, converted five straight third downs with passes on a pair of touchdown drives in the second quarter.

Thriller: Flacco throws touchdown pass Continued from Page B-5 race for the final wild-card slot in the AFC. It also avenged a 19-16 loss to their division rivals last month. It was the fifth straight game between the teams decided by three points or fewer. Pittsburgh appeared to score twice in the closing minutes, but on each occasion the touchdown was overturned by a replay. On the first one, tight end Heath Miller was ruled down inside the 1. On the second, running back Le’Veon Bell lost his helmet on a crushing tackle by Jimmy Smith, and the ball was ruled dead just short of the goal line. The game was delayed while Bell and Smith lay on the ground. Two plays later, Roethlisberger connected with a wide-

open Cotchery on fourth down. Tucker connected on kicks of 43, 34, 38, 45 and 48 yards after Joe Flacco threw a firstquarter touchdown pass to Torrey Smith. Flacco went 24 for 35 for 251 yards. Roethlisberger was 28 for 44 for 257 yards and two TDs. Baltimore didn’t get a sack and didn’t force a turnover, but played well enough to bottle up Roethlisberger and the Steelers for the majority of the game. Down 19-7, the Steelers mounted a 60-yard drive aided by two penalties and got a 1-yard touchdown run by Bell to close to 19-14 with 9:32 to go. It was only the second rushing TD allowed by the Ravens this season. Tucker answered with a field goal, but Roethlisberger mounted a 79-yard drive

to set the stage for the hectic finish. The Ravens opened the second half with a 52-yard drive that ended in a field goal for a 13-0 lead. Smith caught two passes on third down to keep the drive alive. Pittsburgh answered with an 80-yard march that began with a 21-yard completion from Roethlisberger to Miller, and included a 43-yard run by Bell to the Baltimore 8. On third down, Sanders got free in the end zone for an 8-yard score — only the fourth touchdown allowed by the Ravens in six home games. Jacoby Jones took the ensuing kickoff 73 yards to the Pittsburgh 27, setting up a 38-yard field goal that made it 16-7. Jones sprinted down the left side and nearly ran into Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, who stepped out of the way at the last second.

Back: Denver went 2-1 without Fox Continued from Page B-5 being remains our No. 1 priority.” It’s been less than a month since Fox had his heart operation. Team owner Pat Bowlen sent his private jet to Charlotte, N.C., on Wednesday to bring Fox and his wife, Robin, back to Denver. Fox had been recuperating at his offseason home after aortic valve replacement surgery Nov. 4. Del Rio said he invited Fox to drop by the office Thanksgiving morning so that the entire team wouldn’t have to show up at the Fox house for turkey dinner. “It was great to see [him] and very fitting on a day like today when we’re all kind of taking a pause and taking a break and giving thanks,” Del Rio said. Fox will stay back in Denver when the Broncos visit Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday for an AFC West showdown between 9-2 teams that could go a long way in determining playoff positioning. Del Rio has gone 2-1 in Fox’s absence. He and Del Rio talk every day, and he even Skyped his players during a team meeting last week. He was breaking down plays upon his release from the hospital, and on Wednesday, quarterback Peyton Manning said they’ve communicated “a healthy amount” over the last three weeks. His return was first reported by Fox Sports. About a week after the surgery, Fox said on a con-

ference call with reporters that he was born with a bicuspid aortic valve, one that has only two leaflets instead of the usual three. The aortic valve regulates blood flow from the heart into the aorta, the major blood vessel that bringss blood into the body. He said it was discovered in 1997 when a murmur showed up in a physical while he was the Giants defensive coordinator. He was told earlier this year that surgery was necessary, but he had hoped to delay the operation until after the Super Bowl. That changed when he almost passed out Nov. 2 while golfing in Charlotte, two days after he’d visited his cardiologist in Raleigh. Less than 48 hours later, he had surgery, and he was released from the hospital four days after that. He said the typical hospital stay for such surgeries is five to seven days. He also noted that he was “very, very healthy,” saying his heart condition was more of a birth defect than the result of any poor lifestyle choices or too much stress. He pledged then get back to work by season’s end. Tight end Jacob Tamme called it a “pretty cool Thanksgiving treat to have him back and see how happy he was to be back.” “I mean, it’s killing him [to be away],” Tamme said. “He loves it, man. He loves being around this group, and we love having him here. So it was pretty awesome.”

At the time on Facebook, she called it a “temporary setback” and that “nothing will keep me from picking myself back up and continuing to fight for my dreams.” The Sochi Olympics are in February. Vonn hasn’t raced since tearing ligaments in her right knee during a high-

speed accident at the world championships in February. She was well ahead of schedule for a World Cup return — with her first competition scheduled to be this weekend in Beaver Creek — before her crash at the U.S. speed center in Copper. Just the news that Vonn was back on skis was greeted as a good sign for teammate Leanne Smith. “I’m psyched for her,” Smith said. “I just want her to feel comfortable and ready to get back on it. … I know she’s working [hard] and that’s all that matters. I hope the progression is easy for her and that her confidence is right back again.” In an interview with NBC’s Today

No. 5 Oklahoma St. beats Purdue The Associated Press

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Purdue gave No. 5 Oklahoma State a scare after a poor first half. But that was all. Bryson Scott scored 18 points as the Boilermakers rallied from a big deficit before losing 97-87 to the Cowboys Thursday in Okla St. 97 the opening round of the Old Spice Classic. Purdue 87 “I thought who we are as a team was shown in both halves,” Purdue coach Matt Painter said. “You saw an immature team in the first half not really handle coaching. Our guys, I think their ego clashed with reality in the first half. Anytime you face someone who’s got a lot of attention, who’s ranked high, you want to go right at them and you want to beat them by yourself, and you can’t beat Oklahoma State by yourself. You’ve got to beat them a team.” Marcus Smart scored 30 points, and Markel Brown added 25 points for the Cowboys (6-0), who came in averaging 100.2 points and had defeated their first five opponents by an average of 37.8. Smart tied Michael Beasley (Kansas State), Devan Downey (South Carolina) and Jared Jordan (Marist) for the highest scoring game in classic history. Oklahoma State led 52-29 at halftime after going to the foul line 25 times. Smart spent considerable time on the bench in the second half with four fouls when the game tightened up. “Purdue was coming,” Smart said. “They were making a run.” Purdue (5-1) also got 12 points from Errick Peck. Ronnie Johnson, who was averaging 13.8 points, battled foul trouble and had 10 points. “We slowed things down and we ran Purdue’s offense in the second half,” Scott said. “First half, guys like me, I was forcing a lot of shots. Doing a lot selfish things. Second half, we came out and played as a team and we were able to chop the lead down.” The Boilermakers stormed back late and pulled within 84-80 on a 3-pointer by Kendall Stephens with 3 minutes left. Brown and Smart made layups to give Oklahoma State a little breathing room. “We just didn’t play smart,” Painter said. “You’ve got to play hard and you’ve got to play smart. I was happy for our guys to comeback and compete better in the second half, but how pleased can you be as a coach when you give up 97 points? Johnson didn’t get his first points until making a basket a minute into the second half. The Cowboys went ahead 67-46 with 14 minutes left on a pair of dunks by Brian Williams. This is the first time Oklahoma State has scored 90 or more points in six consecutive games. Smart, who scored 24 before halftime, received a technical after reacting to a foul call against him midway through the second half. Johnson and Brown were both given technicals during a brief scrum later in the half. Purdue’s Jay Simpson was called for a flagnant foul and ejected late in the first half. NO. 19 UCLA 105, NEVADA 84 In Las Vegas, Nev., Nevada tied a season high with 16 turnovers and gave up more than 100 points for the first time in almost four years. That was way too much to overcome against a team as talented as No. 19 UCLA. Jordan Adams and Zach LaVine each scored

show on Wednesday, Vonn said that her recent crash was caused when she caught an edge, flipped over her skis and “went head-first into the fence.” She said the knee wasn’t the reason for the spill and that her protective brace saved her from possibly more damage. “Unfortunately, it was really bad timing for me,” Vonn said. “I’m still confident. I still feel like I have a lot left to achieve this season. … I still have time before Sochi.” In her Facebook post Thursday, Vonn didn’t indicate how aggressively she skied or how long she was on the hill. She did thank Vail for opening the lifts early and wished everyone a happy Thanksgiving.

21 points, leading the Bruins to a 105-84 victory Thursday in the opening round of the Las Vegas Invitational. “We tried to change defenses and get them off of their rhythm, but we really didn’t do a good job of that,” Nevada coach David Carter said. “I’m not that deep in the frontline, so when you get deeper you can’t score. [And] when you are not getting any stops you can’t run.” Deonte Burton, who has started all 105 games in his career at Nevada, was held to a season-low 20 points on 6-for-15 shooting. Senior guard Jerry Evans Jr. scored a career-high 20 and Michael Perez added 18 for the Wolf Pack (3-4). It was the second consecutive 100-point game for the Bruins, who beat Tennessee-Chattanooga 106-65 on Sunday. Nevada hadn’t allowed more than 100 since a 110-104 loss to BYU on Dec. 22, 2009. “I thought we were too tentative in the first half and the game got away from us,” Carter said. Five players scored in double figures for the Bruins (6-0), who quickly erased an early fivepoint deficit and built a double-digit lead less than 10 minutes into the game. UCLA’s lead got as high as 19 in the first half, when the Bruins shot 16 of 25 (64 percent) from the field and 17 of 18 at the free throw line. They finished at 60.7 percent from the floor, including 10 of 20 from 3-point range, and 27 of 29 (93.1 percent) from the foul line. NO. 21 MEMPHIS 87, SIENA 60 In Lake Buena Vista, Fla., Joe Jackson scored 18 points, Shaq Goodwin had 17, and Memphis advanced to the semifinals of the Old Spice Classic by beating Siena. Michael Dixon Jr. added 16 points for Memphis (3-1). The Tigers’ lone loss this season came against Oklahoma State, a game the Cowboys won handily 101-80 on Nov. 19. Memphis could get a rematch in the championship game of this event Sunday if both teams win Friday. Siena (2-5) got 11 points from Brett Bisping. Leading scorer Rob Poole (15.5 points per game) was held to six on 3-of-15 shooting. NO. 23 IOWA 77, XAVIER 74 (OT) Roy Devyn Marble scored 30 points before leaving with a leg injury, and Iowa rallied from a 15-point second-half deficit to beat Xavier in overtime at the Battle 4 Atlantis. The Hawkeyes (6-0) never led in regulation, but never trailed in overtime. Zach McCabe scored 11 points, and Gabriel Olaseni had 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Hawkeyes. Aaron White’s 10-point night ended with a clutch tip-in with 1:40 left in overtime. Xavier (5-1) had three 3-point tries all bounce off the rim in the final 10 seconds. Justin Martin led the Musketeers with 15 points. NO. 25 MARQUETTE 86, CAL STATE FULLERTON 66 In Fullerton, Calif., Jamil Wilson scored a careerhigh 24 points and grabbed nine rebounds, and Marquette routed tournament host Cal State Fullerton in the first round of the Wooden Legacy. Davante Gardner and Jajuan Johnson each had 18 points off the bench for the Golden Eagles, who quickly squashed any hope the Titans had of pulling an upset. Marquette grabbed a double-digit lead just 10 minutes into the game and cruised from there. The Golden Eagles (4-2) shot 55.7 percent from the field and outrebounded Cal State Fullerton 40-20. They led by as many as 26, allowing backups to play most of the second half. Michael Williams scored 16 points for Cal State Fullerton (2-4). Marquette will play George Washington in the tournament semifinals Friday.

“Well, I think it’s an honor,” McCarron said. “I don’t ever think about that. I’m focused on my team right now, and what we need to do to be successful week in and week out. Whatever they want to say after I’m done playing, that’s fine with me.” His chances of being declared “best this year” by Heisman voters partially hinge on what happens this Saturday, and possibly the next two Saturdays. Auburn’s defense ranks 13th in the SEC against the pass and gave up 415 yards two weeks ago to Georgia’s Aaron Murray, but has been stingy once opponents cross the 20-yard line. The Tigers have also racked up 24 sacks, led by Ford’s eight in nine games. McCarron said Auburn’s front four is athletic, and the defense will no doubt be highly motivated for this game. “They’re going to be amped up, ready to play,” he said. “In their stadium, it’s going to be loud. It’s going to be a good challenge for us. It’s going to be fun. “I love playing in games like this.”

Santa Fe teens give back to community by volunteering

gen e

A helping hand


By Eliza Donahue Generation Next


t is a cool, windy November day at the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society, and St. Michael’s High School student Lauren Wissman is walking a dog on one of the trails around the building. Inside, students Georgia Redd and Kira Breeden check in on some cats, while Andrea Padilla socializes with some shelter dogs. The four teens are members of St. Michael’s Animal Rescue, a group that volunteers at the shelter and spreads awareness of its mission within their school community. The group’s dedicated work at the shelter is just one example of the many ways that teens volunteer around the city of Santa Fe. Across town at the Santa Fe Children’s Museum, every Sunday afternoon Larissa Foy and Evan Gilbert play with kids and perform maintenance on the museum’s many exhibits. Both teens said they are drawn to volunteering because they enjoy working with children and remember the days when they attended the museum as children themselves. Foy, a freshman at Santa Fe High School, enjoys the challenges that come with her position. “There’s a lot of creativity involved because sometimes a certain exhibit won’t be working the way you want it to work so you have to kind of come up with some little trick to make it work that way,” she said. “Also, when you’re playing with the kids, there are a lot of different kids who don’t necessarily know each other, but they want to all play with the same exhibit, so it’s challenging sometimes to figure out how to help them all play together.” According to India Nixon, the museum’s volunteer coordinator, the museum has about 35 teen volunteers. She stressed that the most important thing for a volunteer is to have a genuine enjoyment of helping: “I can teach someone how to file, I can teach people how to do certain things, but if that person doesn’t want to be doing it … then it’s just miserable for everyone.” She said teen volunteers make up 50 percent of the museum’s floor staff. “A lot of people think ‘Children’s Museum’ and they think, ‘Oh, it’s just for babies or little elementary [school] children.’ But it’s such a great place for teenagers to be because of our volunteer program because you get to be in such a positive environment, you get to learn new skills, meet other teens that you might not have been able to meet in another way, and it’s just a really positive thing for everyone who participates.” Ben Worstell, a teen volunteer at the museum, agrees. “I think it’s important for teens to volunteer because it’s a good way for them to get experience in multiple ways — children, responsibilities, having to be on time. It’s just a good experience overall.” St. Elizabeth Shelter also has a lot of teen volunteers. School groups from Santa Fe Prep and St. Michael’s, as well as students from

other schools, help with the upkeep of the shelter facilities, clean, cook and collect donations. Some hold positions at the front desk, which requires training and a more committed schedule. Rosario Gonzales, coordinator of the shelter’s volunteer programs, said, “I’ve had lots of teens come and take it upon themselves to come take a tour [and] sign themselves up for volunteering, and they come and get trained. They are some of the best volunteers we have. They are super responsible [and] very well educated. They are very aware of what’s going on in their community, and they want to make a difference and I think that’s what makes a good volunteer, regardless of your age.” But finding time for community service can be a challenge to teens. When asked about the difficulty of volunteering for Planned Parenthood, New Mexico School for the Arts sophomore Amelia Wood said, “Probably the biggest conflict for me would be time, of course, because at NMSA I have a really busy school schedule, I practice the horn a lot and I also have honors classes and I do some other stuff.” But Wood believes that the benefits outweigh any inconveniences. “I know this probably sounds extremely cheesy, but I have learned so much from being able to work with other people who share my interests,” she said. “The experience is completely worth my time. I’m not giving up anything.” Santa Fe Prep addresses students’ time restraints by devoting the last period of Thursday school schedule to the school’s Teen Action Program. The students are

responsible for taking their own initiative in community-service projects, and by their senior year they must complete a self-guided project. According to Teen Action Program coordinator Eric Rounds, “We take half a day of school and do service. That’s why I’m at Prep because I love that commitment to service. One of the downsides is that it can become perfunctory. It’s hard to get people to come out on a Saturday, because they go, ‘Oh, I already did TAP on Thursday.’ ” Teens also may get involved in volunteering through service clubs at their schools. Bonnie Fortier-Shultz, the National Honor Society president at Santa Fe High School, said, “I think it’s really helpful to actually get kids involved rather than just telling them, ‘You should be volunteering.’ It’s a lot easier for them if they have someone who has already set it up and if they’re part of a club then they have some camaraderie.” The club, comprising about 55 members, is currently working on two holiday drives: one for food and one for gifts. What about teens who want to volunteer and don’t know where to start? “After you start making phone calls, then you’re good. A simple Internet search is really all that it takes to get involved,” Fortier-Schultz said. A detailed list of organizations looking for volunteers can be found on the Santa Fe Community College’s website: volunteer_agencies. Eliza Donahue is a junior at Desert Academy. Contact her at

Keep GMOs off my plate By Raina Wellman Generation Next


wonder how many people really know what genetically modified organisms are? It’s one reason I am offering my opinion on the issue — an opposing position based on a lot of research. Biological modification and hybridization of animals and plants has been going on for years. Arguably, using genetic science, GMOs seek to create the same effect faster and better. GMOs are organisms designed to have specific characteristics. By changing or adding new genes to organisms, scientists can hypothetically create, for instance, the perfect avocado — large, healthy and rich in protein. This product is supposed to be cheaper, taste better and reduce greenhouse emissions, resulting in the best possible product that is resistant to disease, insects and infections. It has been said that GMOs can feed the world using fewer pesticides. All this information provided about GMOs from supporters does

n o i t ra

sound appealing. But I see some serious flaws in the way in which GMOs are supposedly going to solve problems. We all have to start looking into this issue before opening up what might be an agricultural Pandora’s Box. You should look at the many arguments that refute pro-GMO claims. Think about diversity: Crop diversity is essential to provide both environmental and organism sustainability. Plants and animals with less genetic diversity are less likely to survive, research shows. A good example is the Irish potato famine of the 1800s, which left millions hungry due to a lack of diverse farming practices, among other reasons. And the results of eating GMO food remain unknown. A study done by GMO safety researcher Dr. Arpad Pusztai found unfortunate results. Fed with genetically modified potatoes, rats began developing many different physical problems: development of pre-cancerous cells, damage to their immune systems, brains, livers and more. Other studies produced equally

bad results. A Russian National Academy of Sciences study indicated that GMOs can result in cancer. Internet stories of the death of 10,000 sheep fed with GM cotton plants as well as other research products help paint the GMO industry in what seems to be a rather well-deserved dire portrait. GMO supporters say that GMOs will result in less pesticide, fungicide and herbicide use, but this has not yet been proven. On top of this, statements that GMOs can feed the world have already been refuted. A late 1990s statement from 24 delegates from 18 African countries addressed to the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization said, “We strongly object that the image of the poor and hungry from our countries is being used by multinational corporations to push a technology that is neither safe, environmentally friendly nor economically beneficial to us. … We think it will destroy the diversity, local knowledge and the sustainable agricultural systems … This it will undermine our capac-

ity to feed ourselves.” In addition, 900 scientists working under the United Nations admitted that traditional farming procedures outperform GMO crops.

The Nation recently reported that 26 nations have banned GMOs to date; Mexico is still fighting a legal battle over this possibility. At the very least, stores should have labels on food products identifying GMO materials. Only a few states in America currently have a law in place ensuring that; the U.S, Department of Agriculture encourages voluntary labeling but does not mandate it.

It’s frightening to think that scientists may be developing things that will have detrimental effects. Let’s think about the planet’s overall health. I propose that we start small, with gardens, community farms and urban agriculture, introducing new protein-rich plants into our diet (like quinoa) and better food distribution for the needy.

Katniss and co. leave audiences ‘hungry’ for more in ‘Catching Fire’ By Elizabeth Sanchez Generation Next

Ladies and gentlemen, the 75th annual Hunger Games and Quarter Quell have begun! The first Hunger Games film, released last year, captured hearts, producing multiple quotes and physical gestures that will likely remain with our generation for a long time — including the signature three-finger raise, “volunteer[ing] as tribute,” and the definition of “Girl on Fire.” A year later, film director Francis Lawrence crafts a second chef-d’oeuvre with the sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Both films are based on author Suzanne Collins’ popular novels. The well-crafted script follows the novel — but not to the point of confusion. The plot line picks up where The Hunger Games ended, with teen protagonists Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) forced back into the arena to fight by the Quarter Quell, a new twist that appears every 25 years. Reluctantly, the two face new trails and horrors, uncertain of whom to trust as Katniss unknowingly becomes a key player in the nationwide revolution known as the Mockingjay. The tongue-in-cheek approach mocks current feelings toward first-world greed and our fascination with reality television programs, as exemplified by the Games and the Capitol’s central government, with its lavish celebrations, drinks that allow individuals to empty full bellies so they can make room for more while the majority of the nation — Panem — starves. The government continues to place its citizens — divided by districts — under further distress and tighter leashes. Katniss’ actions egg on a rebellion against the Capitol’s attempts at dictatorship. The main actors — Lawrence, Hutcherson and Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth) — outdo themselves here. Deep emotions riddle their voices and sculpt their physical features, which gives the action a deeper meaning. The character of Primrose Everdeen (played by Albuquerque-born Willow Shields) takes on a strong role in this film, enduring some gruesome injuries and embodying a wise mindset — pretty amazing given the actress is only 13 years old. New characters, including Mags (Lynn Cohen) and an unnamed District 11 man, are played by actors who let their emotions take flight. All the film’s elements — dramatic scenery, camera angles, lighting, sublime sound effects — work together to bring audiences into this sensational story. The setting transfers between districts via trains, finally settling in the arena. Each scene plays up awareness of excessive governmental involvement, which forms the movie’s distinctive storyboard as each character supports or attempts to spare the government’s fall. Trish Summerville’s costume design emphasizes both the setting and the futuristic time frame. The actors — some from the previous film, some new — add to the excitement, including Sam Claflin (Finnick Odair), Jeffrey Wright (Beetee), Donald Sutherland (President Snow), Lenny Kravitz (Cinna), Stanley Tucci (Caesar Flickerman) and Woody Harrelson (Haymitch Abernathy). The expected character statements and actions will remain with audience members after they leave the theater, specifically Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks) proclaiming, “We are a team.” Some themes embrace optimism, noted in President Snow and Primrose’s belief that inducing fear in the citizens of Panem won’t work because Katniss represents hope. Cinna’s statement powers this theme: “I’m still betting on you, Girl on Fire.” It can send chills of ecstasy, elation and yearning up young viewers’ spines. The film’s cliffhanger finale evokes a “hunger” for more. Viewers should step into the realm of Panem and the makings of a revolution, joining in the inspirational movement in preparation for a third film and a spark that begins the changing of a world. Until then, “May the odds be ever in your favor!” Elizabeth Sanchez is a junior at Santa Fe High School. Contact her at

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH You might feel as if you are on top of the world. Make the most of today. Reach out to an old friend and make plans to get together. Tonight: Make it your treat.

Friend’s version of story upsets teen Dear Annie: I’m 16 and have been best friends with “Cindi” since second grade. Last weekend, my parents attended a party and allowed Cindi to stay overnight. Two people broke into the house to rob it. They tied up and gagged Cindi and then forced me to take them from room to room putting things in a sack. Before leaving, they tied and gagged me, too, leaving both of us face down on the floor. Over the next few hours, we struggled and then tried to talk and even started giggling, but mostly, we just waited for my parents to come home and call the police. Naturally, we’ve been the “stars” at school since then, but I discovered that Cindi is telling her own version of what happened. She says I was weepy and panicky. This really upsets me. I don’t want Cindi to portray me as a weakling to our friends. We spent five hours on the floor together, but except for a few sobs, I thought we handled it well. So how do I handle Cindi? — Bound, Gagged and Furious Dear Bound: Cindi does this because she wants to make herself look good. The fact that she does it at your expense is damaging the friendship, and you should say so and ask her to stop. You also can let your friends know that you remember things a little differently, while holding your head up and not letting it get to you. But mostly, we hope you realize how very fortunate the two of you are to have escaped this robbery unharmed. Dear Annie: A fairly new friend and I just returned from lunch, after which I realized that a rather frequent problem has happened yet again. I’ve read your column for years and know that people write to get help dealing with family and friends. This time, the problem is me! When I’m with others, I chatter.

Sheinwold’s bridge

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HH You won’t be readily available, and you might not be in the mood to share what you are doing with others. Tonight: Meet some friends at a favorite spot. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Make time for a special friend; perhaps the two of you can get shopping done together. Investing in a common experience is important in order to keep this bond alive. Tonight: Take a personal night. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You have to make an appearance today. You will feel better after it is done; besides, you really don’t mind meeting this responsibility. Tonight: Be where the action is. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Some of you could be making travel plans for next month, while others might be addressing your Christmas cards. Tonight: Check in with an older relative or friend. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Be sensitive to a partner. Even though you might have been under the same roof for Thanksgiving, you could have very different stories to share. Tonight: Where there is good music. Jacqueline Bigar

The Cryptoquip is a substitution cipher in which one letter stands for another. If you think that X equals O, it will equal O throughout the puzzle. Single letters, short words and words using an apostrophe give you clues to locating vowels. Solution is by trial and error. © 2013 by King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Today in history Today is Friday, Nov. 29, the 333rd day of 2013. There are 32 days left in the year. Today’s highlight in history: On Nov. 29, 1961, Enos the chimp was launched from Cape Canaveral aboard the Mercury-Atlas 5 spacecraft, which orbited earth twice before returning.

Hocus Focus

I tell overly detailed stories. I even strike up conversations with people around me in lines and with store clerks. It’s like I must become their friend for the duration. Sometimes before meeting with people, I tell myself that I will make an effort to control my chatter, but when I am having fun, I forget. I really admire people who draw out conversation from others by asking pertinent questions, and I, too, want to be a person who asks and listens. Do you have any clues for reining myself in? — Chatty Cathy Dear Chatty: The fact that you notice your chatter and wish to stop is a good sign, although you may be a little hard on yourself. Try counting to 10 when someone starts speaking. Listen to what they are saying. Imagine that it is a fascinating subject, and try to formulate a question or comment that allows them to expand on the topic. You don’t have to do it every time, but even once or twice during a conversation will help you slow down and focus on the other person. Dear Annie: The letter from “New York” described dumpster diving for food. My husband is an experienced “dumpster diver,” although he doesn’t look for edible items. We live in a small college town. Annie, you would not believe what students throw into dumpsters when they go home for the summer or move into their own apartments. My husband has found brand-new appliances, clothes, and unopened cake mixes, cereal, spices and canned meats. It’s astonishing. We have found microwave ovens, computers, video games, patio furniture, linens — you name it. When we were both out of work, this was a lifesaver to us. We are in a better financial situation now, but I remember those days fondly. — Mel in Michigan
