Panel blocks bill to let voters decide on legal marijuana The New Mexican

A proposed constitutional amendment to legalize marijuana didn’t make it out of a state Senate committee Tuesday, and all sides agree that means New Mexico voters in November likely won’t get to vote on whether this state should follow Colorado and Washington state in legalizing, taxing and regulating the drug. The measure, Senate Joint Resolution 10, sponsored by state Sen. Jerry Ortiz y Pino, D-Albuquerque, met an impasse in the Senate Rules Committee. There, five Democratic senators voted to pass the resolution on to the Senate Judiciary Committee with no recommendation. However, Sen. Clemente Sanchez, D-Grants, joined all four committee Republicans to vote against that move. That means SJR 10 is dead for this

session — except in the unlikely event that someone has a change of mind. But even though the vote was a defeat for drug reform advocates and recreational marijuana enthusiasts, one New Mexico activist said there was a big silver lining in the committee’s debate. “We were really encouraged by the debate,” said Emily Kaltenbach, executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance’s New Mexico office. “Some of the issues that were voiced in the past [by opponents] didn’t come up in the debate today. I think the tide is turning.” Polls in recent years have shown a growing support for marijuana

New Mexico students score far below U.S. average on AP exams By Kimberly Hefling

The Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE — New Mexico high school students ranked below the national average on Advanced Placement tests last year, a report released Tuesday shows. Overall, 12 percent of New Mexico students passed, compared to a national average of 20 percent. But the New Mexico scores have improved over the past decade, a period during which the number of U.S. public school students taking Advanced Placement classes nearly doubled. Advanced Placement exams, which started in the 1950s, offer a way for students to earn college credit while still in high school and are offered in 34 different subjects. The classes are designed to be rigorous and are graded in a uniform way, meaning students’ grades from one school can be matched up against those from another. Proponents say

they help transition students to college and allow graduates to stand out in the college admission process. The 10th annual report by the College Board also shows New Mexico had the highest percentage of Hispanic and low-income students who passed the tests. The report shows 43 percent of Hispanic students in New Mexico who took an AP test scored 3 points or more — the highest percent nationally of students achieving the grade many colleges and universities require to award college credit. At 53 percent, New Mexico also has the highest number of Hispanic high school students, and 46 percent of them took an AP test. Nearly 40 percent of low-income students in New Mexico who took an AP test passed. Much of the nationwide expansion in the number of students taking the tests stems from an effort

he streets of downtown Santa Fe shut down temporarily Tuesday to make way for the funeral procession of a reclusive former Marine who died alone in his home from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Retired Sgt. Eloy Timothy Tafoya was described as a “loner” by the few people who knew him. But his tragic death by his own hand in a Santa Fe apartment in January struck a chord with dozens of people who gathered at the Santa Fe National Cemetery in the veteran’s honor.

Tafoya, 60, was described by the few who knew him as a reclusive man, and he died alone in his home from a selfinflicted gunshot wound. ‘Knowing he died alone was so upsetting,’ said funeral attendee Taneya Vigil, wiping tears from her face as she left the ceremony.

Belgium set to extend right-to-die law to kids BRUSSELS — Belgium, one of the very few countries where euthanasia is legal, is expected to take the unprecedented step this week of abolishing age restrictions on who can ask to be put to death — extending the right to children for the first time. The legislation appears to have wide support in the largely liberal country. But it also has aroused intense opposition from foes — including a list of pediatricians — and everyday people who have staged noisy street protests, fearing that vulnerable children will be talked into making a final, irreversible choice. Backers like Dr. Gerland van Berlaer, a prominent Brussels pediatrician, believe it is the merciful thing to do. The law will be specific enough that it will only apply to the handful of teenage boys and girls who are in advanced stages of cancer or other terminal illnesses and suffering unbearable pain, he said. Under current law, they must let nature take its course or wait until they turn 18 and can ask to be euthanized. “We are talking about children that are really at the end of their life. It’s not that they have months or years to go. Their life will end anyway,” said Van Berlaer, chief of clinic in the pediatric critical care unit of University Hospital Brussels.

The plane was heading to Constantine from the southern Saharan city of Tamanrasset, which has a massive military presence because of its proximity to the country’s unstable southern borders. It was at least 24 years old, according to sales information supplied by its maker, Lockheed Martin Corp. The plane carried 74 passengers and four crew members, the military said in its statement, blaming poor weather for the crash.

JERUSALEM — Hundreds of people have flocked to a small town in northern Israel to view a statue of the Virgin Mary that residents say “weeps” oil. Members of a Christian family from Tarshiha, near the Lebanon border, say they have witnessed a miracle in their living room. Osama Khoury said Tuesday that his wife Amira found the statue “covered with oil” recently. Amira said the statue “spoke to her” and told her not to be afraid. After a neighbor witnessed the oil, word soon spread. Parts of the statue appear to be slick with moisture, even after it is wiped off. The family says it is most striking when a “tear” seems to roll down the statue’s cheek. It says some 2,000 people have come to see the statue over the last week.

CHEVY CHASE, Md. — Change is coming quickly to the Boy Scouts of America after years of turmoil and debate over its membership policy, with an openly gay 17-year-old in Maryland achieving the highest rank of Eagle Scout. On Monday night, Boy Scout Troop 52 of Chevy Chase, gave Pascal Tessier sustained applause. Scoutmaster Don Beckham announced the 17-year-old Tessier was officially the troop’s newest Eagle. For Tessier, it represents six years of work, 27 merit badges and projects in service, leadership and outdoor skills. For more than a year, Tessier, who lives in the Washington, D.C., suburb of Kensington, has been one of the most prominent openly gay scouts speaking out to change the Scouts’ longstanding ban. After a vote last year, the organization of 2.5 million members officially opened its doors to include all boys, regardless of sexual orientation. A ban on gay adult leaders remains in place. Tessier is likely the nation’s first openly gay Eagle approved under the new policy, according to the advocacy group Scouts for Equality. The Associated Press

New rules will ban import and export of ivory

Push to fix what ails nuke force rooted in past WASHINGTON — Five years ago the Air Force considered a series of proposals to boost morale and fix performance and security lapses in its nuclear missile corps, according to internal emails and documents obtained by The Associated Press. But many fell short or died on the vine, and now, with the force again in crisis, it’s retracing those earlier steps. The new effort is more far-reaching, on a tighter timetable and backed by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. So it appears to hold more promise for an Air Force under scrutiny after a variety of embarrassing setbacks and missteps raised questions about whether some of the world’s most fearsome weapons are being properly managed. The earlier approach, shown in internal Air Force documents and emails from 200809, included some of the ideas being floated again today by a new set of Air Force leaders, including bonus pay and other incentives to make more attractive the work of the men and women who operate, maintain and secure an Air Force fleet of 450 Minuteman 3 nuclear-tipped missiles. Then, as now, the Air Force also looked for ways to eliminate the most damaging “disincentives” — parts of the job that can make missile duty onerous. “Keep the faith,” one commander wrote to his ICBM troops in an email in early 2009.

WASHINGTON — In what animal conservationists hailed as a “significant milestone” in the global fight against elephant poaching, the Obama administration on Tuesday announced a ban on nearly all ivory sales in the United States. As part of the new National Strategy on Wildlife Trafficking to end a trade that threatens to wipe out the world’s largest land animal, the administration said that for the first time vendors must prove beyond any doubt that ivory up for sale is an antique, as allowed under the Endangered Species Act. Administration officials said authenticity can only be proven with a U.S. government permit showing the ivory was imported prior to a ban in 1989, or a foreign government permit showing it was exported before that time. Ivory older than a century is also exempted with proof. Even with a permit, there will be no sale of ivory allowed across state boundaries, according to an administration official. Conservationists said those prohibitions are the most important step in combatting illegally poached and traded ivory, which have exploded in recent years. The value of ivory, estimated at $1,500 per pound by the time it reaches China, and rhinoceros horn, which police and prosecutors said is worth “more than its weight in gold,” with estimates as high as $25,000 per pound, is driving a robust black market trade. The United States is the world’s second-largest market behind China for illegal wildlife artifacts. The legal sale of ivory in the United States helps to mask black market sales, law-enforcement officials said Officials at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said U.S. leadership is key, as shown last year when its crush of several tons of seized ivory led China and France to follow suit. Elephants that once roamed the African plains by the millions now number less than half a million, with some 35,000 killed each year. Last year, more than 1,000 rhinos were poached in South Africa alone. It was impossible for law enforcement to identify whether ivory was purchased before 1989 or an antique through observation. Shifting the burden to the seller to prove an artifact’s age is a huge development, Flocken said. World Wildlife Fund President and chief executive Carter Roberts called the proposed changes “a significant milestone in the global fight against wildlife crime . . . reflecting the fact that it has grown into one of the most profitable criminal industries in the world, estimated at $10 billion annually.” The administration elevated the illegal trafficking of ivory and rhino horn to a priority for several federal agencies, including the departments of State, Justice, Homeland Security and Interior, which oversees Fish and Wildlife. The strategy has three priorities: strengthening enforcement; reducing demand for black market wildlife artifacts in America and the world; and building strong partnerships with world governments and nonprofits. Tuesday’s announcement focused solely on tougher regulations on ivory sales, complementing a ban on the sale of rhinoceros horn in the United States. Commercial exports of ivory products also will be banned, except for proven antiques and specific exceptions allowed under the Endangered Species Act, officials said. A special Fish and Wildlife rule that relaxed restrictions on trading ivory will be revoked under the strategy. Permits for importing elephant sport-hunting trophies collected by American hunters in African nations will be reduced to two per year. In addition to elephants and rhinoceros, everything from endangered tigers to turtles are slaughtered to sell their hides and shells, often for the benefit of organized criminal syndicates.

Legislative roundup Days remaining in session: 8 Gun ban holstered: A proposed prohibition on openly carrying guns in the New Mexico House of Representatives and its committee rooms at the state Capitol didn’t get its scheduled debate, at least not formally. On Tuesday morning, the House Rules and Order of Business Committee failed to seat a quorum for the second time in a week, so House Resolution 3 remains holstered on the committee’s calendar. But that didn’t stop Rep. Brian Egolf, D-Santa Fe, and San Juan County Sheriff’s Office Detective Mike Sindelar from casually holding their own discussion. Egolf proposed the restriction on weapons in the House, and Sindelar has been outspoken about his opposition to it. While waiting for the committee hearing that never happened, Egolf told his foil that guns can chill open discussions at the Roundhouse. He said citizens seeking to testify about legislation and the lawmakers who present bills can be intimidated when guns are present. “I’m not a ‘take ’em all away’ kind of guy, by any stretch,” Egolf said, telling Sindelar that he is a gun owner. But Sindelar wasn’t swayed. He said he is accustomed to seeing guns carried in the open and feels safe in their presence, a perspective he said many in the state share. The Senate rejected a similar proposal to ban guns in parts of the state Capitol. The House proposal wouldn’t apply to people with permits that allow them to carry concealed weapons legally. Senate confirms Martin: The Senate on Tuesday unanimously confirmed F. David Martin as secretary of the Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department. Martin was nominated by Gov. Susana Martinez last April after the retirement of the previous secretary, John H. Bemis. Martin previously served as the environment secretary under Martinez. Budget could budge: Republican and Democratic leaders in the House negotiated Tuesday in hopes of giving the stalled budget bill a push. They will meet with members of their respective parties Wednesday morning, and action on the budget could come later in the day. House Speaker Kenny Martinez, D-Grants, recessed the House on Tuesday to allow for some back-channel negotiations on budget issues. But Rep. Luciano “Lucky” Varela, D-Santa Fe, who chairs the Legislative Finance Committee, said he wasn’t aware of any progress following that session. The budget stalled on the speaker’s desk Friday after a 34-34 vote failed to advance it from the House to the Senate. Democrats were down two members, Reps. Phillip Archuleta of Las Cruces and Ernest Chavez of Albuquerque, who both have health problems and haven’t

attended the session to date. Rep. Sandra Jeff, D-Crownpoint, joined Republicans in voting against the bill, which Democrats had commandeered to strip out merit pay for teachers and principals and other initiatives supported by the Republican governor. Democrats favored individual school districts controlling the money Martinez wanted used for the initiatives, while Republican said the New Mexico Public Education Department should control the money to assure they are enacted. Webcasting measures advance: The House Appropriations and Finance Committee gave thumbs up this week to two proposals dealing with webcasts. House Resolution 2, sponsored by Rep. Jeff Steinborn, D-Las Cruces, would require that all webcasts of House committee meetings and floor proceedings during the session be archived so viewers may watch at their convenience. Currently, such webcasts can only be watched live. The resolution goes to the House Judiciary Committee. Another Steinborn measure, House Concurrent Resolution 1, would require the Legislative Council Service to begin webcasting all committee hearings that take place between legislative sessions. This also goes to the House Judiciary Committee. However, for this resolution to go into effect, it must pass both the House and the Senate. Second chance for DWI bill: House Bill 10, left to die last week, got a do-pass recommendation from the House Transportation and Public Works Committee on Tuesday on a 6-0 vote and now goes to the House Judiciary Committee. Sponsors Elizabeth “Liz” Thomson, D-Albuquerque, and Stephanie Garcia Richard, D-Los Alamos, asked the members of the committee to reconsider the bill after it was tabled last Thursday. The bill, similar to one passed by the House last year, closes loopholes in the state’s DWI laws. The bill would include felony DWI under the state’s Habitual Offender Enhancement statute, increase requirements for removal of an ignition interlock device and mandate home Breathalyzers for offenders sentenced to house arrest. DWI recidivism: House Memorial 75, introduced by Emily Kane, D-Albuquerque, asks the Administrative Office of the Courts to convene a task force to survey practices and programs for DWI recidivism. The memorial proposes a review of research results from programs like the 24/7 sobriety and drug monitoring program in South Dakota. It also calls for a survey of the effective sentencing and probation management practices around New Mexico, such as supervised probation, drug testing and jail time sanctions for probation violations. Minimum-wage boosters: Sen. Bill Soules says he is optimistic that a constitutional amendment to raise the statewide minimum wage will make the November ballot. Soules, D-Las Cruces, said during a news conference Tuesday that ordinary people from both political parties believe

an increase is necessary. The state minimum wage is $7.50 an hour, although Albuquerque and Santa Fe require higher wages. The constitutional amendment introduced by Soules and Sen. Richard Martinez, D-Española, would raise the minimum wage to about $8.20 and have yearly escalators built in to account for changes in the cost of living. It would need to clear the Senate and House of Representatives to qualify for the ballot. Julia Castro, who owns Cafe Castro in Santa Fe, joined Soules and other Democrats at the news conference. She says she pays her employees above Santa Fe’s minimum wage of $10.51 an hour. “My major expense is my payroll,” Castro said, “but I don’t mind.” She said she cuts back a bit on her household expenses to meet payroll because the state needs to “change the disparity of the haves and have-nots.” Toughen that process: Sen. John Ryan proposes a constitutional amendment to make it harder to get a constitutional amendment on the ballot. It survived its first hearing Tuesday, advancing from the Senate Rules Committee on a 5-4 vote. Ryan, R-Albuquerque, says a two-thirds majority of the Legislature should be required to put a constitutional amendment on the ballot. Currently, a simple majority is required. Thirty-seven proposed amendments have been introduced this session, but no more than a handful are likely to make the ballot. Ryan’s proposal to heighten the requirements goes next to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Looking ahead: Lawmakers will recognize acequia leaders and the 25th anniversary of the New Mexico Acequia Association beginning at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 12, in the Roundhouse. Parciantes and mayordomos will talk about the importance of maintaining the centuries-old ditch systems that provide irrigation to thousands of acres of gardens, orchards and crops. Acequia associations are asking for investment in irrigation works and for a “positive” working relationship with the state engineer to develop water sharing and allocation during the current drought. u Senate Bill 89, which would commit $82 million from the Arizona Water Settlements Act toward water supply projects in southwestern New Mexico that don’t include diverting the Gila River, is scheduled for a hearing before the Senate Conservation Committee at 2:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13. The Interstate Stream Commission has until the end of this year to tell the U.S. Department of the Interior how it proposes to use federal money and Gila River water available under the settlement. Conservationists don’t want to see the Gila River — the state’s last free-flowing river — dammed and diverted. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Peter Wirth, D-Santa Fe, proposes using federal funds to beef up water conservation, watershed health and irrigation systems to meet water supply needs before diverting the river. The New Mexican

Panel to vote on indigent care compromise By Patrick Malone The New Mexican

A path forward for the thorny issue of how to fund indigent care at New Mexico hospitals began to take shape Tuesday in the Senate Public Affairs Committee, but the matter became heated when the bill sponsors discovered a compromise measure had hijacked their legislation. Three competing bills — each calling for counties to raise taxes to help cover the cost of indigent patient care — had been merged with separate legislation to address the phase-out of the state’s “hold harmless” program, which provides funds to local governments to make up for revenue lost after taxes are cut on food and some medical products. That issue also involves imposing local taxes. But Sen. Nancy Rodriguez, D-Santa Fe, erupted when she saw her indigent care

bill contained the “hold harmless” provisions. “This is really news to me,” she said. … To inject the hold-harmless clause in here is not acceptable.” Ultimately, the committee reached a tentative agreement that would grant counties authority to raise gross receipts taxes for the indigent care fund by 0.083 percent for five years. The onetwelfth-cent tax was a compromise between a one-eighth-cent tax sought by hospitals and a one-sixteenth-cent tax supported by counties. The measure, which would raise an estimated $27 million, does not include the “hold harmless” provision. The measure does include a provision would prohibit hospitals from turning over to collections agencies the delinquent accounts of patients who earn less than 200 percent of the federal poverty level. The revamped legislation faces a

vote of the committee Wednesday. Another $9 million for the indigent fund is proposed in the budget the Legislature is considering. But an estimated $9 million gap remains to meet the minimum state match necessary to tap into a 3-to-1 windfall of federal funds. Committee members Sen. Jacob Candelaria, Sen. Daniel Ivey-Soto, both Albuquerque Democrats, blasted the Human Services Department for failing to include adequate funding for indigent care in its budget request to the Legislature. Bill sponsor Sen. George Muñoz, D-Gallup, told the committee what’s at stake if insufficient money is available. “Hospitals are closing,” he warned. “That’s just a basic fact.” Contact Patrick Malone at 986-3017 or Follow him on Twitter @pmalonenm.

A measure advanced Tuesday that would make New Mexico’s laws against driving under the influence of drugs among the most strictly enforced in the nation, despite concerns of overreach and cost. The House Transportation and Public Works Committee passed along the proposal by Rep. Bill Rehm, R-Albuquerque, to the House Judiciary Committee on a 6-0 vote. Still, some members fretted that the idea needs to be refined before it can become law. The bill would lower the standard for the crime of driving or boating while impaired by drugs to include any detectable amount of substances, ranging from marijuana and Methadone to prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications. Currently, no threshold for drug intoxication is specified in New Mexico law. Instead, prosecution of drugged-driving cases relies on evidence and observations by law enforcement officers. Under Rehm’s bill, that would still be the case, but blood tests that detect any amount of drugs in a driver’s blood would serve to underscore the other evidence. Representatives of a group that favors relaxing drug laws and the New Mexico Public Defender’s Office testified against the bill. Considering any level of drugs in a driver’s system indicative of intoxication could snare drivers whose abilities are not impaired, and current law already provides for prosecution of those who cause serious accidents and are found to be intoxicated by drugs, they said. Residual traces of past drug use also would constitute driving while impaired under the legislation. Metabolized marijuana, heroin, cocaine, amphet-

amine, methamphetamine and Ecstasy are on the list. The bill’s threshold for the residual amount of marijuana proposed, 2 nanograms, came under fire from the Drug Policy Alliance of New Mexico. Regular users of marijuana — including many who use it medicinally, as allowed by New Mexico law — are likely to have a higher level than that, even if they have not ingested the drug in 24 hours, according to David Schmidt, a lobbyist for the Drug Policy Alliance. “It may not have influenced any of the driving particulars and habits that they have exercised on that day,” he said. Rep. Patricia Lundstrom, D-Gallup, said the bill’s vagaries — not its particulars — worried her. the measure lacks a firm spending estimate on what it would cost the state. Rehm defended his bill as a means of holding accountable those drivers who use legal drugs at more than therapeutic levels and those who drive with illegal drugs in their systems. David Mills, director of the New Mexico Scientific Laboratory Division, which conducts blood tests to determine drivers’ level of intoxication, testified in favor of the bill. He said with growing frequency, his lab’s tests are revealing drivers had drugs in their systems — sometimes five and six types at a time. Some members of the committee said developing a scientifically determined threshold for drug intoxication would improve the bill. Six other states have laws that consider any amount of drugs in a driver’s blood a criminal offense, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Full House gets bill to limit regent cronyism By Milan Simonich The New Mexican

A bill aimed at taking away the governor’s power to appoint anyone she likes to university governing boards advanced Tuesday. The proposed constitutional amendment cleared the House Voters and Elections Committee on a 5-4 vote. It next will be considered by the full 70-member House of Representatives. The amendment would change the state constitution to create nominating committees that would send the names of regent finalists to the governor, who then would make her selections from that list. In two committee hearings so far, Republicans have universally opposed the amendment and all Democrats have supported it. The sponsors, Rep. Jeff Steinborn of Las Cruces and Sen. Tim Keller of Albuquerque, are Democrats, but they say the amendment should not be seen as partisan or a jab at the sitting governor, Republican Susana Martinez. Steinborn says the measure is intended to improve the talent at state universities by ending cronyism in gubernatorial appointments to boards of regents. Steinborn said governors of both parties had treated regent appointments as ambassadorships, handing them to friends, political allies or campaign donors instead of people who would be well-qualified to oversee universities. Under the bill, each regent nominating committee would be bipartisan, and would have to include members of the faculty and student body, as well as residents of the city where a university’s main campus is located. Rep. Paul Bandy, R-Aztec, challenged Steinborn’s plan. He said university faculty members could be partisan in their

recommendations for regent appointments. “They want a voice in the process,” Steinborn said in response. Rep. Antonio “Moe” Maestas, D-Albuquerque, said New Mexico’s existing system of allowing the governor alone to make regent selections was flawed. He said some states even recognize the importance of their universities by electing regents. Steinborn last year proposed a constitutional amendment to elect about half the regents of The University of New Mexico and New Mexico State University, but it died in a Senate committee. Martinez’s state Higher Education Department says the latest proposal by Steinborn and Keller is toothless. In a written analysis, the department said the constitutional amendment “does not expressly challenge the governor’s appointment power nor limit the governor’s consideration of regent candidates to a list offered by the nominating committee.” Steinborn, though, says the amendment would restrict the governor to choosing regents from lists of finalists compiled by nominating committees. The amendment would cover regent appointments to all seven of New Mexico’s fouryear colleges and universities, the New Mexico Military Institute, the New Mexico School for the Deaf and the New Mexico School for the Blind and Visually Impaired. If the amendment by Steinborn and Keller wins approval in the House of Representatives and the Senate, it would appear on the November ballot for voters to make the final decision.

legal: Activist sees silver lining in debate Continued from Page A-1 legalization. In 2012, voters in Colorado and Washington decided to legalize it. Two law enforcement groups — the New Mexico District Attorneys Association and the New Mexico Sheriffs’ Association — stood up to oppose the proposed amendment Tuesday. But, unlike past years, there was little talk about alleged harmful effects of marijuana or whether it would become a gateway to harder drugs for children. Some opponents, like Sen. Sander Rue, R-Albuquerque, said they are not in favor of arresting people for a few joints. However, Rue and others said they don’t think legalization should be accomplished by constitutional amendment. Rue suggested that an interim committee studying the overhaul of the state’s criminal code should consider changes in marijuana laws. Rue also said he didn’t want to create a “black market,” in which it would be easier and cheaper to get marijuana from those not going through a stateregulated system. Ortiz y Pino argued that marijuana already is readily available. “What this amendment does is take its profits out of the hands of drug kingpins,” he said. Sen. Cliff Pirtle, R-Roswell, said he’s not necessarily against legalizing marijuana, but argued it should be done through state statute. He said state regulations — how it’s going to be sold, how it’s going to be transported — should be in place before any legalization of marijuana. Some opponents said New Mexico should keep an eye out for a few years on how marijuana legalization works in Colorado and Washington. Some Republicans during this session have charged that Democrats are using constitutional amendments to “go around” Gov. Susana Martinez’s

veto pen. The governor has no veto power over proposed amendments. In the current session, lawmakers have introduced more than 30 proposed constitutional amendments, including those that would raise the minimum wage and increase the amount of money from the Land Grant Permanent Fund to pay for early childhood education programs. After stopping SJR 10, the committee voted to recommend another proposed constitutional amendment — SJR 17, sponsored by Sen. John Ryan, R-Albuquerque — which would make it more difficult to get constitutional amendments on the ballot. And while nobody will say it on the record, some Republicans privately have said there is a political component in play when it comes to a marijuana amendment. Some say there’s a fear that such a ballot measure would bring a bumper crop of youth to polls in an off-year election, which could hurt GOP candidates. Proponents of the amendment argued that under the current marijuana prohibition, minorities are more likely to be arrested than Caucasians, even though the rate of marijuana use doesn’t differ significantly among white people and other races. In a statement following the vote, Peter Simonson, the executive director of the state branch of the American Civil Liberties Union, said, “We cannot afford to continue wasting millions of dollars arresting and incarcerating people on the basis of race and for possessing a substance that’s safer than alcohol.” Contact Steve Terrell at Read his political blog at

According to an arrest warrant, at the time of the homicide, neighbors told police that Rhiannon Montoya of Española, now 36, was not allowed at her uncle’s home and that “she had problems and always wanted money.” According to the warrant, police believe Rhiannon Montoya took Baldonado and Martinez to Rudy Montoya’s house, telling Martinez she could get a TV and a computer at the residence. An investigating officer wrote in an affidavit that prior to the attack, Martinez had been suffering from narcotics withdrawal. The warrant says Baldonado and Martinez both admitted to law enforcement officers that they had beaten Rudy Montoya to death, attacking him with a baseball bat when he answered the door. Martinez also admitted to stabbing him, the warrant says. Officers reported finding a bloody bat in the car when Martinez and Rhiannon Montoya were arrested Oct. 11 during a traffic stop.

The report finds the number of low-income graduates who took an AP exam has quadrupled in the last decade. The College Board points out there’s room for more expansion: About 40 percent of public U.S. high schools don’t offer any AP classes. And nearly 300,000 students who were identified by standardized tests as having potential to succeed in AP graduated without taking the classes.

classes have been opened too wide and whether schools are doing enough to assist students in them. In 2013, about 57 percent of AP exams had a score of 3 or higher, compared with 61 percent a decade earlier, according to the College Board. That means students did not score a 3 or higher on about 1.4 million exams. Looking at it in another way, about 20 percent of graduates in 2013 earned a 3 or higher on an AP exam, compared with about 12 percent of graduates in 2003. Research is unclear on whether there are long-term benefits to taking an AP class if the student fails, said Kristin Klopfenstein, executive director of the Education Innovation Institute at the University of Northern Colorado, who has studied the issue. Among those students, she suspects it’s only those who were on the cusp of

passing who get much benefit. Klopfenstein said from an equity standpoint, it’s good to increase the availability of AP classes. But students may not truly have “access” to the exams unless they’ve been given a quality education to prepare them for the class or extra support to help them succeed. “Access is much more than about offering the courses, it’s about offering wraparound support, so that kids who are coming in farther behind have a chance to take AP and actually be suc-

cessful,” Klopfenstein said. Philip Sadler, a Harvard University professor who also has studied AP outcomes, said that for some students coming in unprepared for AP-level work, it would be like enrolling in an advanced French class without having taken a previous French class. “AP can be a really good thing for the right student,” Sadler said.

But Martinez’s attorney, Steve Aarons, said the sentencing hearing likely won’t be held until after the case against all three defendants has been settled. Neither Baldonado’s defense attorney, Robert Tangora, nor Rhiannon Montoya’s attorney, Ian Loyd, could be reached for comment Tuesday. A family member of Rudy Montoya declined to comment about the case but did say he was aware that the two women had entered guilty pleas. Rhiannon Montoya’s trial is set to begin March 25. She is charged with first-degree murder, aggravated burglary with a deadly weapon and tampering with evidence.

ny kid who ever tapdanced at a talent show or put on a curly wig and auditioned for Annie can only dream of being as beloved — or as important — as Shirley Temple. Temple, who died Monday night at 85, sang, danced, sobbed and grinned her way into the hearts of downcast Depression-era moviegoers and remains the ultimate child star decades later. She was America’s top box office draw during Hollywood’s golden age, and her image was free of the scandals that have plagued so many other child stars — parental feuds, drugs, alcohol. Her hit movies — which included Bright Eyes (1934), Curly Top (1935), Dimples (1936), Poor Little Rich Girl (1936) and Heidi (1937) — featured sentimental themes and musical subplots, with stories of resilience and optimism that a struggling American public found appealing. She kept children singing “On the Good Ship Lollipop” for generations. She was also a tribute to the economic and inspirational power of movies, credited with helping to save 20th Century Fox from bankruptcy and praised by President Franklin D. Roosevelt himself for lifting America’s spirits during a gloomy time. She was “just absolutely marvelous, greatest in the world,” director Allan Dwan told filmmaker-author Peter Bogdanovich in his book Who the Devil Made It: Conversations With Legendary Film Directors. Her achievements did not end with movies. Retired from acting at 21, she went on to hold several diplomatic posts in Republican administrations, including ambassador to Czechoslovakia during the sudden collapse of communism in 1989. Temple, known in private life as Shirley Temple Black, died at her home near San Francisco. The cause of death was not disclosed. From 1935 to 1938, she was the most popular screen actress in the country and a bigger draw than Clark Gable, Joan Crawford or Gary Cooper. In 1999, the American Film Institute’s ranking of the greatest screen legends put Temple at No. 18 among the 25 actresses. “I have one piece of advice for those of you who want to receive the lifetime achievement award: Start early,” she quipped in 2006 as she was honored by the Screen Actors Guild. But she also said that evening that her greatest roles were as wife, mother and grandmother: “There’s nothing like real love. Nothing.” Her husband of more than 50 years, Charles Black, had died a few months earlier. In Bright Eyes, Temple introduced the song “On the Good Ship Lollipop” and did battle with a charmingly bratty Jane Withers, launching Withers as another major child star. As a bright-eyed orphan in Curly Top, she sang “Animal Crackers in My Soup.” She was teamed with the legendary dancer Bill “Bojangles” Robinson in two 1935

films with Civil War themes, The Little Colonel and The Littlest Rebel. Their tap dance up the steps in The Little Colonel (at a time when interracial teamings were rare in Hollywood) became a landmark in the history of dance on film. Known for a remarkable ability to cry on cue, she won a special Academy Award at age 6. Temple’s mother worked to keep her daughter from being spoiled by fame and was a constant presence during filming. But Temple said she stopped believing in Santa Claus at age 6, she said, when “Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph.” After retiring from acting at 21, politics brought her back into the spotlight. She made an unsuccessful bid for Congress as a Republican in 1967. After Richard Nixon became president in 1969, he appointed her a member of the U.S. delegation to the U.N. General Assembly. In the 1970s, she was U.S. ambassador to Ghana and later U.S. chief of protocol. A few months after she arrived in Prague in 1989, communist rule was overthrown in Czechoslovakia as the Iron Curtain collapsed across Eastern Europe. “My main job [initially] was human rights, trying to keep people like future President Vaclav Havel out of jail,” she said in a 1999. Within months, she was accompanying Havel, the former dissident playwright, when he came to Washington as his country’s new president. Born in Santa Monica, Calif., to an accountant and his wife, Temple had just turned 3 when she made her film debut in 1932 in the Baby Burlesks, a series of short films in which tiny performers parodied grown-up movies, sometimes with risque results. In her 1988 autobiography, Child Star, she revealed some dark moments during an otherwise happy life and career: An MGM producer exposed himself to her when she was 12, and her first marriage, to actor John Agar ended in divorce in 1949. Meanwhile, her father squandered millions of dollars she earned from the movies. She married Black in 1950, and had two children, Lori and Charles. She also had a daughter, Susan, with her first husband. In 1972, she underwent surgery for breast cancer and was credited with opening up public discussion about the disease. She urged women to get checked by their doctors and vowed: “I have much more to accomplish before I am through.”

Michael Sam: Changing black America


n Sunday night, Michael Sam made history. The college football standout and likely top NFL draft pick publicly acknowledged that he is gay, which would make him the first athlete in a major American professional team sport to announce he is gay at the very beginning of his career. Sam’s announcement is already one of the biggest sports stories ever, but the timing of his announcement could make it one of the biggest cultural stories ever as well. Some of you may be scratching your heads right now trying to figure out why this story matters in an age in which the president of the United States is on the record supporting same-sex marriage, and NBA player Jason Collins came out as gay last year. But Sam’s story will likely have a far more significant impact than either of these milestones. Here’s why: President Barack Obama certainly has a measure of influence, particularly among black audiences. When he first ran for president, data showed an “Obama effect” among black testtakers whose scores markedly improved when he won. But influencing test scores in a condensed time frame is very different from having a longterm impact on community behavior. For instance, so far there is no data to suggest that the image of the president’s nuclear family, comprised of two married parents raising their children and two dogs together, has significantly altered the landscape within the black community, in which single parenthood has become the norm. That is simply to say that altering social behavior in a meaningful way is a tall order for any one man, but it may be particularly tough for a president. People look to presidents for guidance on a host of issues. Whether or not our nation should go to war, for instance, or whether a drastic overhaul of our nation’s health care system makes

Time to get down to work

T sense. Rarely do we look to our presidents to guide our behavior. All of the civil rights legislation President Lyndon Johnson helped pass certainly mattered in the lives of African Americans. But the white Americans in the real world, who attended school with black Americans and realized their worlds did not fall apart following integration, ultimately mattered more. You know who else mattered just as much as the laws themselves? Jackie Robinson, Nat King Cole and Sammy Davis Jr. — the mainstream black celebrities who helped alter perceptions about black people in a way the president at that time could not. Their cultural influence had an impact no politician could touch. This is why Michael Sam’s coming out matters more in some ways than Obama’s comments on LGBT rights, as significant as they have been. While people look to the president for leadership, few look to him to define masculinity. Instead many look to athletes for that, particularly in the black community.

Many of the roots of homophobia in the black community remain embedded in this antiquated notion of what it means to be a man, but specifically a black man. Instead of this idea being tied to qualities like respecting women or taking care of any kids they father, manhood is somehow still largely portrayed, at least in imagery, as how physically strong men are and which women they can bed. But Sam has now permanently rocked that definition — in a way that no black man and no black athlete before him has. After all, Collins may have come out. But — no disrespect to him — he did it at what was widely perceived as the end of his career, rather than the beginning, when there was no risk of leaving any real money on the table in terms of endorsement deals. Sam, on the other hand, is confronting American homophobia squarely between the eyes. He is forcing the fans of one of the most macho sports to ask themselves the questions they’ve been able to avoid for decades: Would they rather

not root for one of the most talented players, who may soon take the NFL field and who can help their team win, simply because he is more likely to find another player more attractive than one of the cheerleaders? Or would teammates rather play with a less talented player and lose for the same reason? But perhaps the biggest question of all: If Sam can play with the best of them, and beat the best of them, how can anyone, anywhere, define him as less than a man? And if he is just as much of a man as the men he beats on the field, then what exactly is the point of homophobia? These are questions Obama and Collins couldn’t force sports fans to ask. But thanks to Michael Sam, there are African American men and boys having that conversation in America today. And maybe, because of those conversations, homophobia will be close to a distant memory sooner, rather than later. Keli Goff is The Root’s special correspondent.


Mining La Bajada unnecessary, irresponsible


llowing gravel mining on La Bajada mesa, the iconic gateway to Santa Fe, is unconscionable. There seems no need for the product as other gravel mines in the area are more than able to meet both current and any increased demand. Even more important, in this time of increasing drought, to allow usage from county wells of a minimum of 1 million gallons of water per year for 25 years for mining dust control is foolhardy. When will our county officials recognize that in the Southwest, water is a finite and diminishing resource? We need to safeguard these natural resources, and treasure and protect this scenic and historic area that means so much to those who live here, and which enchants tourists from around the world. Richard King

promise significant economic benefit to the county. Rockology’s own study estimates only seven full-time employees, with no promise that these will be new or even local hires. Since there is no proven unmet demand for this gravel, these operations will be undercutting existing businesses and diluting the sales tax that the county is currently collecting. Only a substantial and sustained public outcry will stop this. You may add your voice at a Santa Fe County Commission hearing on at 4 p.m. Feb. 20. Physical presence at the meeting carries a lot of weight with our county officials. Allan Sindelar

of the 130 co-sponsors of the Government by the People Act, (HR 20) which was introduced in Congress on Feb. 5. This legistlation matches small-dollar donations under $150 with public funds 6-to-1, so that a $100 donation becomes $700 — amplifying the voice of the average voter. This will save taxpayers billions in corporate welfare that results from politicians sucking up to big-money donors. I’m proud of Rep. Luján for taking a stand against big-money interests in favor of everyday voters. Judith Hendricks

Santa Fe

A disenchanting view For decades, as I drive between Santa Fe and Albuquerque, I can’t help regretting that New Mexico seems to have sold its scenery to commercial interests long ago. Every “enchanting” vista seems blocked by some garish billboard or other. The poet had it right: “I think that I shall never see, a poem lovelier than a tree; Indeed, unless the billboards fall, I’ll never see a tree at all!” Jan E. Adlmann

Santa Fe

he end of the legislative session is just around the corner — so close, cranky legislators, staffers and lobbyists can taste it. And as sure as Sen. John Pinto sings the “Potato Song” each session, the news media will point out that just past the halfway mark, very little has been done. The New Mexican’s Steve Terrell did just that on Sunday, telling us that by the end of last week, only one bill of out the 700 that had been introduced had cleared the Legislature. That one? The feed bill that authorizes the money to pay the bills. Even knowing that legislators do much of the important work at the last minute doesn’t ease our concern with the way business is being practiced. Here are just two important issues that need addressing. u The state needs a budget. And given the disagreement between Gov. Susana Martinez and the majority Democratic Legislature, it would seem prudent to pass a budget so that, should she veto it, there is time to negotiate. Last week, though, the $6.2 million budget stalled in the House of Representatives, with Speaker Ken Martinez failing to win a majority of Democrats. Instead, it tied 34-34, with Rep. Sandra Jeff, a Democrat from Crownpoint, voting with the Republicans. (Now the legislator says she is being bullied for her stand. Jeff might call it “bullying” when her fellow party members threaten to back her opponent in the primary. We call it politics. Why would Democrats want a squishy vote if they can elect someone who represents their positions more reliably? It’s commendable that she followed her conscience; it’s just that such votes often have political consequences.) u The lottery scholarship fund is running out of money. Without a fix, students and families can’t pay tuition. The lottery scholarship is available for New Mexico high school graduates who earn a 2.5 grade point average their first semester of college and are enrolled full-time, for up to eight semesters. The lottery is nearly bust, with only $40 million coming in and some $67 million projected to go out this year. If nothing else, pass a short-term solution for the remainder of this year and all of next — both the Martinez and legislative budgets have money to do that. Then, come into the 2015 session with an actual long-term fix — not 32 different possibilities, as happened this year. We believe the beauty of the lottery scholarship fund is that it belongs to all graduates of New Mexico high schools, as well as students with a GED; in other words, making it simply need-based limits it. A combination of requiring a slightly higher GPA (2.5 GPA to 2.75 GPA), limiting tuition increases (you graduate paying the same rate at which you started), requiring community college for less-prepared students rather than university, could work. Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez also wants to look at new income for the fund. That’s a nonstarter so far as the governor is concerned if it involves a new tax, but we’d like to hear Sanchez’s suggestions. Keeping the lottery scholarship available — perhaps it will evolve into a stipend, rather than a tuition guarantee — is essential in one of the nation’s poorest states. Yet despite the urgency of the budget and the scholarship shortfall, the essential work languishes, all to be done at the last minute — and as we have said before and will most likely say again, that’s just no way to run a Legislature.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Feb. 12, 1914: Deming — When Mayor John Corbett got on the train to come home from El Paso Sunday evening, he was very much surprised and delighted to encounter the private car of President Chas. H. Markham of the Illinois Central railway, who is making a vacation tour throughout the Southwestern states together with Mrs. Markham and their little grandson, Markham. Feb. 12, 1964: There’s an old adage about the best things in life being free. To most people, snow is not one of the better things in life and the city’s recent snow removal cost figure proves snow is anything but free. City Manager Marion Sebastian said this morning that Feb. 3-8, the period during and immediately after the heavy snow storm of last week, resulted in an expenditure of roughly $7,000. That figure includes the cost of manpower and equipment and salt for city streets. Feb. 12, 1989: The Santa Fe City Council last month made an $11 million decision when it ignored the recommendations of city staffers and voted to move the city dump from the northwest sector. The council decision automatically meant an expensive search for land; greater operating expenses; and, possibly, a need for a building to collect, store and process trash.

Coach might be punishing son Dear Annie: We live in a small rural community where sports help keep the kids off of the streets. My 14-year-old son loves sports. He is well-rounded, makes excellent grades and has good friends. This year, he is again on the school basketball team, but he is the only one who sits on the bench. He doesn’t say much, but I can tell he is discouraged. His mother is so upset about this that she wants to go to the school board. Someone mentioned that my son is being punished because he missed a practice during Christmas break. He told his coaches ahead of time that he would be gone. Before the break, he played about one minute per game. He hasn’t played at all since. Should parents step up to the coaches and risk further “punishment”? This is his first year with these particular coaches. Are they just testing him? Why would such terrible treatment make him want to play next year? — Upset Dad Dear Dad: Some coaches believe this type of punishment is a test of a player’s resolve — a “take it like a man” mentality. We think it is ill-advised, particularly at the high school level, and discourages kids who are not into macho mind games. Some schools give coaches complete autonomy over the sports programs, but this can lead to all kinds of abuses. Before getting involved, however, we urge you to discuss this with your son. While he undoubtedly appreciates your support and concern, he may prefer to handle this in his own way, and we hope you will respect his decision. Dear Annie: Will you speak to my wife of 30 years? She has many wonderful attributes, and I love her. She is, however, late for everything. Our families and friends learned to accept her tardiness for social engagements. But I cannot abide being late for

church every week. With all eyes upon us, we must edge past everyone in order to find a seat. I hate doing this after the service has started. We live only 10 minutes away, so I can’t understand why my wife isn’t ready on time. Even if she doesn’t care about herself, I am humiliated that she has so little regard for me and the people we have to climb over every week to reach a seat. It puts me in the wrong frame of mind for church. I’ve told her this is important to me, but she scoffs and does the same thing the following week. Will you please tell her to get ready on time? — Losing My Religion Dear Losing: Some procrastinators simply have difficulty with organizational skills, and nothing will change if they aren’t willing to work on it. But we think your wife enjoys the attention she gets by arriving late to social functions. Since church is a particular issue, we strongly suggest you attend separately. Arrange transportation if necessary, and then go on your own so you can arrive on time. And save a seat for your wife. Dear Annie: I have some input for “Only Child in Massachusetts,” the 70-year-old woman who stated it was beneficial to be the only child. I have three sisters. Growing up was a challenge. We had to share clothes, bathroom time, telephone time and other luxuries. We fought like cats and dogs, but we learned the value of sharing, laughing and communicating in ways only siblings can. Growing up, I sometimes wished I were the only child. But now I would not want it any other way. My sisters and I are very close and talk to each other daily. Do we still fight? Yes, but instead of hitting each other on the arm, we phone and laugh about it. The relationship we have is treasured and special. — Middle Sis

Mayoral candidates go on attack over water project, PACs at forum By Daniel J. Chacón

The New Mexican

Patti Bushee and Javier Gonzales traded jabs over each other’s voting records and the influence of outside money in the Santa Fe mayor’s race during a forum Tuesday night. The two candidates sparred over a water project, a plan to house undocumented immigrants in the county jail, and the involvement of political action

committees and other groups in Gonzales’ publicly funded campaign. The first exchange during the event, hosted by the Santa Fe chapter of the League of Women Voters, happened over the Buckman Direct Diversion, a multimillion-dollar project that diverts water from the Rio Grande and delivers it to the city of Santa Fe and Santa Fe County. After Bushee touted the project’s benefits, Gonzales charged that Bushee wasn’t always a supporter. “When you go back to the time when it was actually voted on — this was a need to actually increase rates — Mayor Coss had to vote to break

the tie to increase rates so that we can properly fund the Buckman Diversion project,” Gonzales said. “Councilor [Bushee] voted against it. So, we got to recognize that these types of investments have large implications and importance and significance to our community.” Bushee fired back, saying Gonzales wasn’t telling the whole story. Bushee even gave up part of her time for closing statements because she said she needed to correct the record. “This is just ridiculous, a misrepresentation,” she said. Bushee said the project had “multiple steps” and that she had voted

Expanded ‘Native Portraits’ exhibit to open on Museum Hill By Uriel J. Garcia The New Mexican


popular American Indian photo exhibit combining both historical and contemporary images is returning to Santa Fe. The photo show, Native American Portraits: Points of Inquiry, which originally was displayed at the Mexico History Museum in 2012, will open Sunday at the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture and will be on display until January 2015. “The contemporary Native American photography in this exhibition explores, reclaims and recontextualizes historic Native American portraiture,” said the exhibit’s curator, Diane Bird. “They raise issues of colo-

nialism, subjugation, spirit loss, blasphemy, identity and pseudocultural appropriation, as well as questions of veracity, historical fact and interpretation.” The exhibit includes 75 photos, which is 10 more images than the original installation, said Steve Cantrell, a spokesman for the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs. Some of the images are selfportraits, while others portray the photographers’ family members, Cantrell said. Native American photographers such as Lee Marmon of Laguna Pueblo and William Wilson from the Navajo Nation photographed some of the added images in the show. Among the historical images is a late-1800s tintype, taken by an

unknown photographer, that portrays a member of the Chippewa tribe. The artwork is accompanied by a letter about the Chippewa Indian and the person’s family. The Chippewa tribe is in Minnesota. “There are rare, unique vintage photos,” Daniel Kosharek, a photo archivist at the Palace of the Governors, said in a news release. “Very seldom do you see them displayed, not at the Smithsonian, or anywhere, and it’s very much a treat to see them here all in one place.” During the opening day, organizers encourage patrons to bring a vintage heirloom photo to be scanned and included as part of a display in a community photo gallery at the museum,

which will be part of a presentation by Marmon. Also, American Indian dancers will perform. Contact Uriel J. Garcia at 9863062.

Researcher to discuss obesity epidemic Expert to detail health risks that afflict 1 in every 3 adults By Staci Matlock

The New Mexican

Obesity is a complex, expensive and growing epidemic in the United States that’s easier to prevent than to reverse, says Brookings Institution researcher Ross A. Hammond. He believes a coordinated set of strategies will be the most effective way to tackle the problem, which likely has numer-

ous root causes. Hammond will talk about obesity in a free Santa Fe Institute public lecture at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the James A. Little Theater. “I’m not sure everyone understands the scale of the epidemic in the United States,” Hammond said Tuesday as he prepared to make a presentation on the subject to colleagues at the Santa Fe Institute. The institute brings together researchers from a broad swath of disciplines to collaboratively study the complex problems bedeviling the world — and obesity is one of them. Obesity rates have increased in the last

ALBUQUERQUE — Gov. Susana Martinez didn’t break the law when she took a ride on a state police helicopter to avoid missing a commercial flight to attend political fundraisers in Texas in 2011, a top official in the New Mexico Attorney General’s Office has concluded. General counsel David Pederson says it would seem “highly appropriate” for Martinez, her campaign or the Republican Governors Association to reimburse the $800 that the flight cost taxpayers because it was “a convenience afforded her that would not be available to the average citizen or pub- Gov. Susana lic official, even if no law was broken.” Martinez Martinez, who criticized her Democratic predecessor’s use of government aircraft and called a state jet the “ultimate symbol of waste and excess,” said she has no intention of paying back the expense. Her office has said the helicopter flight was proper because Martinez stayed at a Board of Finance meeting that ran late, so state police used the helicopter to get her to the Albuquerque airport on time for a flight to an RGA meeting in Houston. Pederson said it “appears that a colorable reason for use of state transportation has been made by the governor.” He concluded that while the helicopter did provide a personal or political benefit for Martinez, there was a “plausible official purpose” for using it.

In brief

County delays wage-hike vote The Santa Fe County Commission postponed voting on a minimum-wage ordinance Tuesday because Commissioner Miguel Chavez, who co-sponsored the measure with Commissioner Liz Stefanics, was absent from the meeting due to a family emergency. Commission Chairman Daniel Mayfield said the vote will “probably” be taken at the Feb. 25 commission meeting. As written, the ordinance would mandate a minimum wage of $10.50 (and a base wage of $5.25 for tipped employees) in the unincorporated areas of the county and would increase annually based on changes in the Consumer Price Index. Proposed amendments to the ordinance could change those amounts slightly. The city of Santa Fe’s minimum wage increases to $10.66 on March 1.

25 years, both in the U.S. and worldwide. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in every 3 American adults is overweight and 1 in 3 is obese. One in 3 children also is overweight. In 2012, about 27 percent of New Mexicans were reportedly obese. Obesity is unhealthy, shortens life spans and drains the health care system. “Being overweight or obese entails much higher health risks from many important diseases that we care about, including heart attacks, diabetes, cancer, high cholesterol,

The Santa Fe City Council will hold a public hearing Wednesday on two proposals that would place the same restrictions on electronic cigarettes as regular cigarettes. One of the proposed ordinances would prohibit the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors. The other would ban their use in bars, restaurants and other public spaces covered under the city’s existing no-smoking ordinance. City Councilor Ron Trujillo, the lead sponsor of both proposals, said he’s received a positive response to the proposed ordinance prohibiting vendors from selling electronic cigarettes to minors, including from vendors. The proposal to ban the use of electronic cigarettes in public buildings has sparked a bit more resistance, he said. Trujillo said Mayor David Coss to decide whether to hold two hearings or combine them into one. The council’s public hearings are held during the evening session, which starts at 7 at 200 Lincoln Ave.

THE NEW MEXICAN Wednesday, February 12, 2014


Dr. Adrian H. Bodelson, affectionately known as "Bo," a longtime Santa Fe physician who was dedicated to the well-being of countless patients, especially to the thousands of babies he delivered into this world, passed away peacefully at home on February 8, 2014. He was 90. Growing up in the farming community of Dundee, Minnesota, where he was born to Pete and Nettie Bodelson on November 26, 1923, Bo gained a solid work ethic and a practical sensibility that he modeled throughout his life. He was determined and tireless in his pursuits, and Bo followed his interests throughout life with a passion that led him to the highest levels of excellence. With his only sister Ardee, the family moved to nearby Fulda where he distinguished himself not only as an outstanding student, but as a leader. Bo was an Eagle Scout, quarterback of his high school football team and ready for any opportunity for fun and adventure. He was a resident fresh out of the University of Minnesota School of Medicine when a dark-haired nurse caught his eye. After a short romance of just three dates with his beautiful new companion, Corinne Turgeon, he proposed with a twist of three options: forget him, write to him or come with him! Without hesitation, she chose the latter and their lifelong journey together began. Bo and Corinne were married in Edina, Minnesota on June 21, 1947. It was an inspiring and lasting union of over 67 years that was shared lovingly. The Korean War marked their early married life and Dr. Bodelson proudly served as a Naval Flight Surgeon aboard the USS Carrier Bairoko. His love of flying led him from the ship’s hospital bay to observe from the flight deck whenever possible. Later, his private pilot’s license allowed him to soar on his own. He cherished the hours spent flying the skies over New Mexico, often scouting for the next place to hunt or fish. Landing his small plane on a remote stretch of New Mexico highway to visit friends and ride his beloved horses on the Esquibel Ranch, was one of countless joys and outdoor adventures that Bo shared with family and friends over many decades. From the lakes of Minnesota to Brazil to New Zealand and to Alaska, fishing was his joy throughout life. He especially treasured precious time with his large family. When not "on call" Dr. Bodelson loved spending weekends with his ten children fishing, camping and horseback riding. When all twelve packed in the family bus, summer road trips inevitably led to memorable beach discoveries in California, Florida and Mexico. It was during medical school that Bo realized his true calling, focusing his efforts on the demands but also the marvel of obstetrics. Adding to his confidence and skill in surgery was an uncommon compassion, rapport and concern for his patients and their families. Bo and Corinne moved in 1964 with their ten children from Boulder, Colorado to Santa Fe and he opened his OB/Gyn practice, joining the staff of St. Vincent’s Hospital where he tirelessly served for over 50 years. A show of hands of people who live in Santa Fe would reveal a startling number who were delivered by Dr. Bodelson and even more who were cared for by "Doc." From the old downtown St. Vincent’s Hospital where he delivered their last baby, to the doors of the new hospital carrying its first newborn patient, his professional dedication, high regard as a physician and his uncommon integrity has been woven into the fabric of the Santa Fe community for over half a century. It is with great respect, pride and vibrant, unforgettable memories that he will forever be loved by his wife Corinne, their ten children and their families: Dan and Patty Bodelson (Danielle and Gabrielle); Nancy and Ken Tuerk (Melanie, Anya, Michael and Bo); Peggy and Otavio Silveira; Michael and Alice Bodelson (Jessie, Cole, Natalie and Will); Patricia and Charley Brewer (Caroline, Kelly and Patrick Soldow); Susan Kammerer (David, Corinne, Perry and Eric Fishback); David and Deborah Bodelson (Crockett, Caitlin and Ansel); Ann and Merritt Brown (Hallie, Olin, Sophie, Soren, Greta and the much-missed, Jensen); Mary and Lawrence Martinez (Lisa, Anne and Mark); Catherine and John Vargas (Jax and Adrian); and the littlest ones, great-grandchildren, Henry and Nathaniel. Bo was a lasting friend to many, including Peter Fishback, Freddie Soldow, Kathy Roberts and the late Mike Kammerer.The family is indebted to Martha, Alvaro, Ingrid, and Rica for their loving and thoughtful care. Whether known as Dr. Bodelson, Bo, Doc, beloved Dad or Papa, his exceptional energy as a physician, and gift for making life an adventure of learning rich with experience to be shared by those he loved, will long be remembered. He was a lifelong learner filled with a passion for reading. Teaching was a natural extension he shared, whether at the hospital, playing poker or tying flies with grandkids. A private family memorial is planned with a gathering to celebrate his life to be announced at a later date. Gifts in memory of Dr. Bodelson should be directed to the special charity of your choosing or the Jensen Merritt Brown Endowment Fund at the Santa Fe Community Foundation.

Little did we know that morning God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide, and though we cannot see you, you are always by our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating and working hands to rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best. It’s lonesome here without you, we miss you more each day, life doesn’t seem the same since you’ve gone away. Each time we see your picture, you seem to smile and say, "Don’t cry, I’m in God’s hands now, and we will meet again." With all our love, From Your Family HENRY SALAZAR SR.

Obesity: Free lecture scheduled Continued from Page B-1 asthma, arthritis, etc,” Hammond said. Those diseases and the weight problems behind them are major drivers of increased health care costs, he said. “An estimated 21 percent of all U.S. health care spending is linked to people being overweight or obese.” Some studies estimate 1 in every 3 children born in the U.S. today will be diabetic in their lifetime, much of that linked to obesity. The rate might be higher among African Americans and Hispanics. But obesity is much more complicated than just eating too much. It is colored by our genetics, our brains, available food, costs of food, where we live, our workplaces, our fami-

lies, advertising, our schools and more. “This makes pinpointing any particular cause very difficult,” Hammond said. “One of the most important things to know about obesity is there probably is no one single explanation for what is causing this epidemic. There are many pathways that can lead someone to become obese.” If there are many causes and paths to obesity, then it’s unlikely one solution will magically solve the problem, he said. Instead, a systems approach — coordinating actions that address multiple factors behind obesity — could have better results, he said. Contact Staci Matlock at 986-3055 or smatlock@

Continued from Page B-1 A liberal advocacy group, ProgressNow New Mexico, had asked Democratic Attorney General Gary King, who is running for governor next year against Martinez, to determine whether she violated state ethics laws. Martinez spokesman Enrique Knell called the request “one more baseless attack from a discredited left-wing special interest group. “Even the Attorney General didn’t find anything improper here,” Knell said in a statement. He said the state police helicopter was used so Martinez could attend a state meeting that lasted more than six hours. “As always, taxpayer funds were not used to pay for her political travel,” Knell said. When she ran for governor in 2010, Martinez criticized Gov. Bill Richardson’s administration for purchasing a $5.5 million twin-engine business jet and aired ads against her opponent, Lt. Gov. Diane Denish, for use of state aircraft — what her campaign called “the perks of power at the expense of taxpayers.” “Candidate Susana Martinez would have loudly and proudly railed against a public official diverting law enforcement officers and equipment to help an elected official make a political fundraiser,” ProgressNow Executive Director Pat Davis said in a statement. “It’s time Gov. Martinez put actions to words and give taxpayers the refund we are due.” The helicopter flight to Albuquerque was one of three times Martinez has used the $6.7 million state police chopper, the Albuquerque Journal reported in October. She flew on it to attend wildfire briefings in June 2011 and to travel to a welcome-home ceremony for National Guard troops in Las Cruces in December 2012.

In brief

Block Jr. back in jail on violation

Jerome Block Jr., the former Public Regulations Commission member who was sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to campaign violations and embezzlement, is back in jail. Santa Fe County jail records show that Block, 37, was arrested Feb. 6 on a probation violation and Jerome is being held Block Jr. without bond, according to jail records. Block has admitted to substance abuse problems and was was last arrested in July 2012 after he tested positive for alcohol use when he reported to his probation officer. Block originally avoided a 4 1/2-year prison sentence after being convicted of multiple charges, including fraudulent use of his state credit card, identity theft, violations of campaign financing laws and embezzlement of public funds during his 2008 campaign. When he was sentenced in March 2011, Block acknowledged his struggles with addiction. At his sentencing, he told a judge that he had reached his “bottom” and was ready to turn his life around. “And today, your honor, I am going to ask you that you give me the opportunity to walk back to the top, because I know I can do it,” Block said. Judge Michael Vigil, now retired, sentenced Block to probation and required that he get a job, pay child support and restitution, enter a treatment program, be supervised by GPS monitoring and maintain good behavior.

Events focus on Chimayó growth A plan to guide future growth in Chimayó and the surround-

Prescribed burn set for today Fire managers plan to burn 8 acres of slash piles in the Santa Fe watershed on Wednesday. The prescribed burns will be about 3 miles east-northeast of the city. The piles consist of branches, limbs, brush and other debris thinned earlier with chain saws where mechanical equipment can’t be used because of the steepness of the terrain. Winter is an optimal time to burn

because snow on the ground keeps the fire from spreading. The purpose of the burn is to reduce hazardous fuels and protest the watershed. Smoke will be visible from U.S. 84/285, Hyde Park Road, the city of Santa Fe, the village of Tesuque, Pojoaque, Pecos and possibly Las Vegas, N.M.

Police seek aid finding girl The Santa Fe Police Department is asking for the public’s help to locate a 15-year-old girl who was reported missing Feb. 1. Gulissa Venzor, 15, was last seen at Santa Fe High School on Monday. A police department spokeswoman said the girl might be with a boyfriend. Venzor is described as 5-foot-5 and 117 pounds with brown, highlighted hair. Venzor’s parents said the teen had run away from home,

but investigators became more concerned about the girl’s safety when she failed to attend school Tuesday. Police have asked that anyone with information about the girl call Sgt. Michele Williams at 955-5227.

Voluntary recall of chile made ALBUQUERQUE — A family-owned food company in Albuquerque has announced a voluntarily recall of its frozen non-ready-to-eat green chile products. Bueno Foods say the products have the potential to contain low levels of the common bacteria Listeria monocytogenes in its uncooked state. Company officials say tests performed on samples of the product cooked per the cooking instructions on the product’s label showed no Listeria present.

KOAT-TV reports that the voluntary recall is a precautionary measure, as the product is unlikely to pose any risk to the public’s health. Bueno Foods officials say they expect to have their green chile products back in stores in two weeks.

Corrections starts recycling program The New Mexico Department of Corrections has launched a new recycling program aimed at making biodiesel and using old food for worm farms. Corrections officials recently announced that a new sustainability program for inmates seeks to transform leftover food into fertilizer. The program also trains inmates to turn old wood pallets into toys and encourages female inmates to change donated towels into stuffed animals. Staff and wire reports

an electrifying win Española Valley fights off surging Capital High

By Will Webber

Expectations may be high in Lobo land, but they’re fairly lofty in other places, too. Take Boise, Idaho, for instance. Coming off just its second trip to the NCAA Tournament in 19 years, Boise State’s men’s basketball team was an easy pick to finish second behind New Mexico in the Mountain West Conference this season. The Broncos had all five starters, nine letterwinners and 92 percent of the scoring coming back. They responded by rolling to an 8-0 start this season. While the expectations are being met in places like New Mexico (sort of), the same cannot be said of Boise State since the Broncos have gone 7-9 since that hot start. “Conference is hard,” said Craig Neal, UNM head coach. “It’s a tough road, and you’ve got to be able to win on the road. You’ve got to be able to win games that you’re supposed to win and finish games out, so, you know, they’ve just gone through a tough stretch.” The Lobos (18-4, 9-1) have been

elcome to Northern New Mexico basketball, DeeJay Curtis. The Española Valley wing was not prepared for the electricity of the final 3 minutes in Capital’s Edward A. Ortiz Memorial Gymnasium. The noise and the intensity level of a last-minute Jaguars comeback was almost too much for the transfer from Nebraska to take. “It was crazy,” Curtis said. “The whole gym was rockin’. I couldn’t even think. It was fun, though.” It’s fun when you hit your free throws, which Curtis did when it mattered most. His three freebies in the final 1 minute, 29 seconds — including one to cap a three-point play with :09.5 left — helped the Sundevils cling to a 63-62 win in a crucial District 2AAAA game. Española (12-11 overall) rebounded from a 61-59 overtime loss to Santa Fe High on Saturday to keep pace with the Demons, who beat Los Alamos 43-24, atop the district standings at 4-2. But it took some steely nerves from Curtis at a moment when the Sundevils seemed to lack it. They had navigated one Capital surge (a 16-4 Jaguars run in the third quarter to trim a 29-11 first-half deficit) and rebuilt the lead to 57-45 with Dillon Martinez’s free throw at 3:39 left in the game. However, Martinez hit just one of two attempts in a common pattern in the final quarter. Española hit just nine of its last 15 free throws after going 14-of-16 through the first three quarters. That, combined with six turnovers over the final 3 minutes allowed the Jaguars (6-15, 2-3) to make one more furious run. Capital forced four turnovers in a 1-minute stretch that keyed a 10-2 spurt that made it 60-59 on an Ivan Olivas shot off the glass with :59 left. “We panicked a little bit,” said Richard Martinez, Española head coach. “We didn’t share the basket-

Noah has triple-double Wyoming upends No. 5 San Diego State in Bulls’ win over Hawks The Associated Press

The Hawks didn’t lose that year until the Atlantic 10 tournament.

The Associated Press

LARAMIE, Wyo. — Riley Grabau scored 17 points, Larry Nance Jr. had 14 and Wyoming beat No. 5 Wyoming 68 San Diego State 68-62 5 SDSU 62 on Tuesday night to end the Aztecs’ 20-game winning streak. The victory by Wyoming (15-9, 6-5 Mountain West Conference) came almost 16 years to the day after the Cowboys last beat a top-5 team at home, a 62-56 win over No. 5 Utah. Fans stormed the court after the final buzzer, mobbing Wyoming players. Dwayne Polee II led San Diego State with 15 points, followed by Xavier Thames with 13. No. 3 Florida 67, TeNNessee 58 In Knoxville, Tenn., Scottie Wilbekin had 21 points and six assists, and No. 3 Florida stepped up its defense in the second half to outlast Tennessee for its 16th consecutive victory. Michael Frazier II added 11 points to help the Gators (22-2, 11-0 SEC) beat Tennessee in Knoxville for just the second time in their last nine attempts. Frazier and Wilbekin both made key 3-pointers down the stretch to put the game out of reach. Jarnell Stokes had 20 points and 11 rebounds for Tennessee (15-9, 6-5), which was seeking a victory over a highly ranked opponent to boost its NCAA tournament hopes. Jordan McRae had 17 points

and Josh Richardson 13. No. 4 WiCHiTa sTaTe 78, soUTHerN illiNois 67 In Wichita, Kan., Ron Baker scored 19 points, Cleanthony Early added 18, and Wichita State overcame a sloppy start to beat Southern Illinois and remain unbeaten. Tekele Cotton and Darius Carter added 12 points apiece for the Shockers, who became the first team to start 26-0 since Memphis in 2008. Wichita State has five games standing in the way of becoming the first team since Saint Joseph’s in 2004 to have a perfect regular season.

No. 19 TeXas 87, oKlaHoMa sTaTe 68 In Austin, Texas, Javan Felix scored 27 points, making six 3-pointers, and Texas rolled to a win over Oklahoma State, which played its first game without suspended star Marcus Smart. Smart sat out the first of a three-game suspension by the Big 12 for shoving a Texas Tech fan. Without him, the Cowboys never had a chance. Felix scored eight consecutive points that pushed Texas’ lead to 22 early in the first half. The Longhorns (19-5, 8-3) led 54-33 at halftime despite playing without leading scorer Jonathan Holmes, who sat out with a knee injury. No. 15 MiCHiGaN 70, No. 22 oHio sT. 60 In Columbus, Ohio, Nik Stauskas scored 15 points and Derrick Walton III added 13 — including three critical free throws with 1:55 left — to power No. 15 Michigan to a victory over No. 22 Ohio State. The victory ended a ninegame losing skid over the last 11 years in Columbus for the Wolverines (18-6, 10-2 Big Ten), who came into the game tied for the top spot in the conference with Michigan State. Walton added 10 rebounds and six assists. Zak Irvin chipped in with 10 points. LaQuinton Ross had 24 points and Lenzelle Smith Jr. 13 for Ohio State (19-6, 6-6), which had a three-game winning streak snapped.

CHICAGO — Joakim Noah scored 19 points as part of a triple-double, and the Chicago Bulls beat Bulls 100 the Atlanta Hawks Hawks 85 100-85 on Tuesday night. Noah added 16 rebounds and 11 assists, and Taj Gibson had 24 points and 12 rebounds for the Bulls, who had six players score in double figures. Chicago won its fourth straight against the Hawks and sixth in a row at home versus Atlanta. The Hawks have lost a season-high four straight overall. Noah had his fourth career triple-double and first since Feb. 28, 2013. BoBCaTs 114, MaVeriCKs 89 In Charlotte, N.C., Al Jefferson scored 30 points, Anthony Tolliver added 22, and Charlotte earned a rare win over Dallas. The Bobcats had lost 17 of 18 against the Mavericks, but they scored 60 points in the paint and tied a season-high with 12 3-pointers to snap Dallas’ five-game winning streak. Tolliver was 5 of 6 from 3-point range, and the Bobcats went 12 of 24 from beyond the arc. CaValiers 109, KiNGs 99 In Cleveland, Luol Deng scored 22 points, and Cleveland avenged a 44-point loss to Sacramento. The Cavaliers, routed 124-80 in Sacramento on Jan. 12, took a double-figure lead early in

the second quarter and were in control the remainder of the game. Cleveland has won three in a row for the second time this season. Anthony Bennett, the No. 1 pick in the draft who has struggled most of the season, recorded career highs with 19 points and 10 rebounds. Dion Waiters added 20 points for Cleveland.

half for Phoenix. Goran Dragic and Channing Frye had 15 apiece.

GriZZlies 92, WiZards 89 In Memphis, Tenn., Nick Calathes and Marc Gasol scored 18 points each, and Memphis overcame a career-best 37 points from Washington’s Bradley Beal to win. Beal was unable to convert down the stretch, though, including missing a 21-footer with 12.9 seconds left that would have tied the game. Zach Randolph split two free throws with 11.5 seconds left to give the Grizzlies a 92-89 lead. John Wall’s 3-pointer with about 1 second left rattled around before popping out.

THUNder 98, Trail BlaZers 95 In Portland, Ore., Kevin Durant had 36 points and 10 rebounds and the Oklahoma City Thunder edged the Portland Trail Blazers. Jeremy Lamb had 19 points, including a key 3-pointer with 1:38 left for the Western Conference-leading Thunder, who have won 14 of their last 16 games. Nicolas Batum had 18 points for Portland, which has lost five of seven and appears tired as the league approaches the All-Star break. Robin Lopez had 17 points and 14 rebounds. Portland led by as many as 13 points in the first half and held a 55-45 advantage at the break, but the Thunder kept chipping away and the teams went into the fourth quarter tied at 80. Lamb’s 3-pointer gave the Thunder a 96-95 lead, and Oklahoma City held on.

HeaT 103, sUNs 97 In Phoenix, LeBron James rebounded from one of his worst games of the season to score 37 points, and Miami beat Phoenix. James, who had matched his season low with 13 points in Saturday’s loss at Utah, scored 25 in the second half, 14 in the fourth quarter. He also had five steals. Chris Bosh added 21 points, and Mario Chalmers had 13 for the Heat, who were without Dwyane Wade because of a migraine. Gerald Green scored 21 of his 26 points in the second

JaZZ 96, laKers 79 In Los Angeles, Reserve Alec Burks scored 13 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter, and the Utah Jazz sent the injury-riddled Los Angeles Lakers to a franchise record-tying sixth straight home loss.

Chris Kaman had 25 points and 14 boards for the Lakers, who have dropped nine of 11 overall and 21 of 26 since Dec. 21.

Maturing Mora rallies for win over Monte del Sol

The New Mexican

The Mora boys basketball team started the season 1-6, but those lumps are starting to pay off for the Rangers late in the season. Mora 65 After being down nine points at halftime Monte 59 and trailing 46-41 at the end of the third quarter, the Rangers outscored Monte del Sol 24-13 in the final quarter to pull out a 65-59 District 2AA win in Christian Life Academy. “Our tough schedule at the beginning helped us to mature and get better,” Mora head coach James Branch said. “We’re playing with a lot of poise and we’re finishing games.” Jeremiah Olivas led the Rangers (1012 overall, 4-1 2AA) with 18 points while Jerome Alcon added 14 points, to go along with 10 from Travis Romero. Ryan Vanderham led Monte del Sol (1210, 0-5) with 29 points while Omar Ndiaye added 13 points. This win puts Mora at second place in 2AA and they play host to district-leading Santa Fe Preparatory on Saturday. Santa Fe PreParatory 74, PeñaSco 43 The Blue Griffins won their 12th game in

a row with a commanding victory over the Panthers in a 2AA game in Prep Gymnasium. Ian Andersson led Prep (18-4, 5-0) with 17 points while Francis Castillo y Mulert added 13 and Diego Perea 11. Matias Romero had 14 points to lead Peñasco (12-11, 2-3). GIRLS St. Michael’S 47, Santa Fe indian School 32 For the first time in school history, the Lady Horsemen beat the Lady Braves in the new Pueblo Pavilion in a 5AAA game. “The girls are really happy that we got this win,” St. Michael’s head coach Martin Romero said. “We’ve never won on this court.” St. Michael’s (14-9, 2-1) had a 28-25 lead over SFIS (9-14, 0-3) at the end of the third quarter, but it went on a 19-7 run in the fourth quarter to sneak away with the double-digit win. Alex Groenewold had 18 points to lead the Lady Horsemen, while A.J. Lovato added 10. The Lady Braves were led by Tia Henderson, who had 11 points. Santa Fe PreParatory 60, PeñaSco 43 The Blue Griffins waited until the fourth quarter to put away the Lady Panthers in a

2AA game in Prep Gymnasium on Tuesday night. Prep (12-8 , 4-1) had a 38-31 lead over Peñasco (6-16, 0-4) heading into the final quarter, where the Blue Griffins outscored the Lady Panthers 22-11 to solidify the win. “The score didn’t reflect the way the game went,” Prep head coach Anika Amon said. “Peñasco targeted our weaknesses, but we kept our composure.” Alexis Mundt had a double-double with 21 points and 10 rebounds to lead Prep, while Bianca Gonzales added 17. Charlyna Gonzales had 16 points to lead the Lady Panthers while Shannon Medina contributed 15. Mora 56, Monte del Sol 15 The Rangerettes (18-3, 5-0) were more than ready for the Lady Dragons in a 2AA road game in the Genoveva Chavez Community Center, which pleasantly surprised head coach Mark Cassidy. “I was worried about a lack of intensity, but we had lots of it,” Cassidy said of Mora’s 21-0 lead after the first quarter. The lead was 36-8 at the half and 48-13 heading into the fourth quarter. Destiny and Briana Pacheco each had 16 points, while Gerty Herrera added 11. Monte del Sol had Ali Castillo pace the way with seven points.

Win: Sundevils weather off-court storms Continued from Page B-5 ball like we’re supposed to. Those things happen sometimes. We just got to go home and work on those things.” Then came a fifth turnover when Capital’s trapping defense led to a Eric Coca steal, which he fed to Sergio Baray. Baray missed the running layup, but Anthony Garcia grabbed the offensive carom and drove in as the whistle blew with :34.2 remaining. He made the basket, but it was waved off since the foul was committed on the floor. With two shots to take the lead for the first time in the game, Garcia tossed the first attempt long, then left the follow-up short. “I sort of psyched myself out when they waved off the and-one,” Garcia said. “I should

have made them both.” That set up the clinching moment for Curtis, as he took a pass from a driving Jared Garduño and scored off the glass and was fouled. He hit the bonus free throw for a 63-59 edge that sealed the win. Baray nailed a 3-pointer with 3 seconds left, but Capital had no timeouts to stop the clock. The shot completed an 18-for27 performance from the field, which was the antithesis of the Jaguars’ paltry 5-for-23 effort in the first half. They missed 11 of 12 shots at one point, and the Sundevils grew a 29-11 lead after Garduno’s two free throws with :20.3 left in the second quarter. “I don’t know happened,” Baray said. “I don’t want to blame it on the layoff [Capital

hadn’t played since a 59-52 win over Santa Fe High on Feb. 5]. They had Santa Fe High and us. The mood wasn’t there.” An Olivas bucket to end the first half was a precursor of things to come, as Capital made seven of its first eight shots to open the third quarter. When Coca completed a three-point play off a drive up the middle, the Española lead was 33-27 at 3:30 of the third. The hot shooting was not confined to one side of the court. The Sundevils were 10-for12 in the second half, and hit nine of their first 10 shots. That helped them regain control of the momentum and up the lead to 52-37 when Garduno scored on a breakaway layup with 5:53 left in the fourth quarter. It was a sign of how well the

Sundevils can execute their system, even without a day of intense practice in about 10 days. That was when Martinez was placed on paid administrative leave as the Española Public School district investigated allegations regarding Martinez’s coaching style. He was reinstated on Feb. 6. “It’s not a lack of practice, it’s coaching,” Curtis said. “We had very great coaching tonight.” Still, coaching had little to do with what Curtis did on Tuesday night. That was an athlete making the most of an electric atmosphere that sometimes defines Northern New Mexico basketball. Get used to it, DeeJay.

lobos: Delaney’s status still questionable Continued from Page B-5 winning on the road. They are 5-0 in league play and have won eight of their last nine conference games away from home. They get a chance to pad those stats and extend their lofty expectations Wednesday night when they visit Taco Bell Arena in Boise, Idaho, for a 7:15 p.m. tipoff. “If I’d have went into it and you’d have told me in November that we’d be 9-1 right now would you take it?” Neal said. “I’d take it.” The Broncos (15-9, 5-6) limp into the game having lost three straight and slipping into a tie for sixth place in the conference standings. In two of those three losses they blew doubledigit leads late in the game, dropping a tough road game at UNLV on Feb. 1 after the Runnin’ Rebels closed the game on a 17-2 run, then losing four days later against No. 5 San Diego State when they wasted a 14-point lead late in the second half. Guard Jeff Elorriaga sat out

all three losses with an injury and may miss Wednesday’s game, too. He is not listed as a probable starter. The priDeshawn mary conDelaney cerns for the Lobos are Boise State guards Derrick Marks (16.0 points per game) and Anthony Drmic (17.2), as well as forward Ryan Watkins. Drmic is one of the MWC’s top long-distance shooters, while Marks is a physical guard whose game involves driving and creating space inside the arc. Watkins is averaging a double-double this season (11.0 points, 10.6 rebounds) and, lest UNM forget, pulled down 22 rebounds in the Lobos’ win over the Broncos back Jan. 21. “If we can dictate tempo and we can score the ball in the paint, we should have some success,” Neal said. “But we still have to go out and do it.” The biggest issue surround-

ing UNM is the status of guard Deshawn Delaney. The 6-foot-5 junior injured a toe on his right foot during a recent game and sat out practice last Friday and Saturday. Neal said if Delaney couldn’t practice on Tuesday in Boise, he likely wouldn’t play Wednesday. Through a UNM spokesperson, Neal issued this statement on Tuesday night: “He practiced and I anticipate him playing.” With all-MWC candidates Cameron Bairstow, Kendall Williams and Alex Kirk averaging approximately 52 points and 19 rebounds per game, it’s not the offense that Neal is worried about. In each of the last five games, the Lobos’ defense has held the opponent to fewer points than its season average. “I know we don’t get a lot of credit for that, but that’s facts,” Neal said. “We’re getting better defensively and we’re doing good things.” If those good things continue on Wednesday, the expecta-

tions will continue to grow for UNM and, in all likelihood, continue to disappoint for Boise State.

Not a fan of the schedule Neal is no fan of the MWC’s unorthodox approach to scheduling. With 11 schools, the league decided to have each team play eight opponents home and away, then the remaining two in a single game — one at home, the other on the road. The imbalance comes in the order of opponents. The Lobos have already completed the season series with Colorado State, Wyoming and, after Wednesday’s game, Boise State, but they’ve yet to play either game against Nevada and San Diego State. “There’s zero logic to any of it,” Neal said. “And you can’t get any answers from it. I mean, I know it’s computer generated but you play one of the top teams [San Diego State] in the league twice in a month.”

team stands at No. 6 in the country, according to the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Association rankings. On top of a high team ranking, the program also has a couple athletes that are nationally ranked in their events. Junior Salcia Slack is No. 1 in NCAA Division II in the pentathlon (3.824 points) and the triple jump (41’-5.25”, 12.63 meters). She is also ranked fourth in the long jump with a distance of 19’-3.25” (5.87 meters). Redshirt freshman Shanice McPherson is No. 1 in the long jump (19’-10.75”, 6.06 meters) and is 18th in the 60-meter dash with a time of 7.70 seconds. The team travels to Alamosa, Colo., on Saturday for the Adams State NCAA Qualifier. The New Mexican

Kelly Clark ready for the ride of her life


A giant leap but also small step for women

By Pat Graham

The Associated Press

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia — Kelly Clark goes higher than any other woman in the halfpipe. She has all the cool tricks, too, even a new one she’s trying to perfect. And now, tying it all together, is a surge in confidence because of her preparation. She’s the clear favorite in the women’s Olympic halfpipe on Kelly Clark Wednesday. While Shaun White was “antsy” before his final — finishing fourth as he surrendered his title to Iouri Podladtchikov — Clark is more subdued. “There’s a big difference between having potential and being prepared,” said Clark, who’s from West Dover, Vt. “I’ve been in the Olympics before where I had a lot of potential but I haven’t necessarily been prepared. They’ve been stressful and they’ve been intense and I’ve been disappointed. So I worked really hard to get my own personal level really high.” After winning gold at the 2002 Salt Lake City Games, the 30-yearold Clark finished a disappointing fourth four years later in Turin. That, though, propelled her to bronze in Vancouver. “I almost value my bronze medal more than my gold, because I know what I had to overcome to get it,” she said. Each week, Clark visits with a sports psychologist, who delivers a similar message: Believe in yourself. Ever so steadily, it’s seeped through. And now, she’s got a trick — a tripletwisting jump down the halfpipe — to fuel her confidence. “This is 95 percent physical and 5 percent mental,” Clark said. “But if you allow that 5 percent mental, it can completely erase that 95 percent of prep work.” Here are five other people who have a chance to beat Kelly Clark: Herself: Clark has sometimes been her own worst enemy. That’s why she’s so well prepared, to the point where her tricks are second nature. “Sochi is when you should be landing the run of your life. The Olympics aren’t the time to hold back,” she said. Torah Bright: The Australian star soared to gold in Vancouver four years ago. She’s expanded her repertoire to include slopestyle — where she made the final but didn’t medal — and snowboardcross, which takes place on Sunday. Still, her roots and, in some way her heart, remain in the halfpipe. At 27, she’s at the peak of her powers and says her emphasis on snowboardcross over the last year has made her a better overall rider. Considering her talent, it’d be unwise to rule out a repeat. Arielle Gold: A day after older brother Taylor failed to advance out of the men’s halfpipe semifinals, the 17-year-old Gold has considerably better odds in the women’s field. Gold, of Steamboat Springs, Colo., didn’t get serious about halfpipe until two years ago, but her athleticism and progression has closed the gap between herself and the world’s elite quickly. Her consistency could give her good chance at a medal. Hannah Teter: The 2006 gold medalist and 2010 silver medalist comes to Sochi off of what she called a “good practice session” during a week of training that substituted for runs in the X Games.

pion and World Cup champion, and she now has an Olympic title after taking the bronze in Vancouver. Much like Felix Loch, the men’s two-time Olympic champion and a fellow protege of all-time great Georg Hackl, her run of dominance might just be getting started. How dominant was Geisenberger at the Sochi Olympics? Consider: The victory margins posted by the last four Olympic women’s winners, combined, was 0.949 seconds. Geisenberger’s lead after three runs in Sochi was 1.049 seconds. And she didn’t take her foot off the gas for the final run, either. In other words, there was never a doubt. Kate Hansen of La Canada, Calif., was 10th for the U.S., and Summer Britcher of Glen Rock, Pa., placed 15th. They were both making their Olympic debuts, and Hamlin’s medal showed them that yes, it can happen for them, too. “It’s been a long time coming. I’m just so stoked for her,” Hansen said. “She had to wait such a long, long time. I couldn’t be happier for her.” Geisenberger dominated the World Cup circuit this year with seven wins in eight starts, came to Sochi brimming with confidence, then made no mistakes. Geisenberger’s lead was just over threequarters of a second after Monday’s first two heats, and she had confessed in the days leading up to the race she was concerned about how she would handle sleeping with the lead.

Jacobsen finishes 4th in return to racing By Mattias Karen

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia — For Astrid Uhrenholdt Jacobsen, a fourth-place finish never felt so good. The Norwegian cross-country skier was back on the snow on Tuesday, competing in the women’s freestyle sprint at the Sochi Olympics four days after her younger brother died on the eve of the games. The death of Sten Anders Jacobsen, which came “suddenly and unexpectedly” according to the Norwegian team, has cast a pall over the world’s best cross-country squad since then and became one of the talking points of the games after the country’s skiers wore black armbands in his honor during the women’s skiathlon on Saturday, drawing a reprimand from the International Olympic Committee.

While Jacobsen’s race may not represent closure, it was a step toward normality again for Norway ahead of the coming events. “I think I’m the most satisfied fourth-place finisher at the Sochi Olympics,” Jacobsen said in a press release sent out by the team. She

did not talk to reporters after the sprint final. Fourth is often considered the worst place to finish at the Olympics as it’s just outside the medals, but there was no doubting Jacobsen’s sincerity in her statement. She would have had a chance at a medal had she not broken a pole in the final, but had to watch teammates Maiken Caspersen Falla and Ingvild Flugstad Oestberg take silver and gold instead. “The broken pole may have been what stood between me and a medal in the sprint,” Jacobsen said. “But a lost medal isn’t so important today. For me, it was a victory to race.” After the race, she tweeted a photo of Sten Anders with a link to a YouTube video of Norwegian singer Morten Harket’s song “Brother,” and the message: “Good as gold.”

RASNAYA POLYANA, Russia — Two giant leaps by a 22-year-old woman, and another small step for womankind. Like Neil Armstrong, Carina Vogt carved her name into history. No, she didn’t land on the moon. Only 12 men got to do that. Women have had to do all of their flying on or around Earth. And, oh, did Vogt fly Tuesday. Her huge leaps and steady nerves made her the first female ski jumping champion in Olympic history. Floating above the gleaming, flood-lit white hill, the German gracefully shattered a glass ceiling that should been dismantled years ago. Battling long and hard for this, their rightful place at the Olympics, made the ski jumping women into a close-knit, even more determined sorority. But as emancipating as it was to see Vogt and the 29 other pioneers soar with their braids and ponytails, this night isn’t even the beginning of the end of the fight for gender equality in sports. Trends of girls doing less sport than boys start in childhood. Too often, women athletes who do reach the top see less money, less sponsorship and less media coverage than men. So the groundbreaking must not stop with these women with their big skis and big hearts who proved to a global audience what they themselves already knew: that they can hurl themselves down an icy hill and into the void with the best and bravest. In the crowd on this chill and historic Russian night were parents whose persistent lobbying and simple argument — “Our girls can jump!” — embarrassed and helped wear down stick-in-the-muds in skiing and at the International Olympic Committee who eventually ran out of excuses. They included Peter and Barbara Jerome, parents of Jessica, from Park City, Utah. She placed 10th. Peter said the trek his daughter and the other women had to take to get this far taught him “that life is not fair.” “Women are the underdog in sport because, I think for whatever reason, they are the underdog in producing revenue,” he said. But achieving equality in sport — indeed in life — isn’t merely a question of finance but also of will and of challenging tradition. At the Sochi Games, the IOC added more opportunities for women to compete. Biathlon and luge, for example, both have new relay races with men and women teaming together. Still, there are 1,712 male athletes in Sochi to 1,155 women, and 18 of the 88 countries brought no female competitors. Nordic combined, where athletes ski jump and race crosscountry, has no women competitors. Ski jumping gave the women one competition, for 30 jumpers. The men got 70 competitors and three competitions, one on the so-called “normal” hill that the women jumped and another two on the even larger hill that remains an exclusive male preserve at the Olympics and will stay that way at the next games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Women have two large hill events on their World Cup circuit. But the ski federation which organizes the Olympic jumping competition only wants to add a mixed-gender team event on the smaller hill in 2018. That will double the women’s medal chances but also mean they remain junior partners to the men. “The discipline is still very young,” said the federation’s ski jump competition director, Walter Hofer. “Step by step we will improve.” Peter Jerome doesn’t buy that. Women jump on larger hills “all the time. They are more than capable,” he said. “It’s always easy to justify a go-slow approach.” For the record, Vogt’s first jump of 103 meters was further than all but two of the men, although the women did start from slightly higher up on the hill. Perched on the seat at the top, Vogt stared through her goggles at the giddy drop-off and threw herself down it. Into a crouch, arms behind her, accelerating to 55 mph in five seconds — faster than most sports cars. The rumble of her skis on the ice grew to a roar underneath her. Then silence. She was in the air. Flying, flying, flying. Then down. The “Oooh!” from the crowd drowned out the gunshot-like crack the skis make on landing, slapping against the hard snow. As she came to a stop, James Brown singing “I Feel Good” played over the speakers. Quite a night.

Passion fruit, chocolate and Champagne. Could there be three ingredients better suited for a holiday built around love? There are several components to this dessert, but none of them is difficult and they combine to form a most impressive and decadent dessert. Passion fruit puree generally is found in the freezer section of your grocer, often alongside the Hispanic ingredients. CHOCOLATE-CHAMPAGNE TRIFLE WITH PASSION FRUIT CURD Total time: 1 hour, makes four servings For the chocolate cake: ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate ¼ cup coffee 2 eggs ½ cup cocoa powder ⅓ cup packed brown sugar Pinch of salt For the passion fruit curd: ½ cup granulated sugar 2 teaspoons cornstarch 2 eggs ½ cup passion fruit puree 2 tablespoons unsalted butter Pinch of salt For the Champagne cream: ½ cup granulated sugar 3 egg yolks ¾ cup Champagne (or other sparkling wine)

½ cup heavy cream Fresh berries, to garnish Preparation: First, make the chocolate cake. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9-inch cake pan with cooking spray, then line the bottom with kitchen parchment. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Remove the pan from the heat and add the chocolate, stirring until melted. Stir in the coffee until smooth and glossy. In a medium bowl, beat together the eggs, cocoa, brown sugar and salt. Add the chocolate mixture and beat until smooth. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes, or until slightly puffed and no longer loose at the center. Set aside to cool. Meanwhile, make the passion fruit curd. In a clean small saucepan, whisk together the sugar and cornstarch. Add the eggs and beat until smooth. Add the passion fruit puree and beat again until smooth. Set the pan over medium heat and cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture comes to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the butter and salt. Set aside and allow to cool completely. To make the Champagne cream, set up a double boiler with 1 inch of water in the bottom pan. If you don’t have a double boiler, fill a medium saucepan with 1 inch of water, then set a large bowl over it.

other via magnetic attraction. The cake is messy, like a chocolate cake made by a gifted 5-year-old, and is much more like the kind of cake we make at home. This cake is meant to be shared. Both decadent and heavy, it can overwhelm a single person — go up to the counter and order it, and you’ll find yourself explaining to everyone around you that it’s “for the group,” and yelling across the restaurant to your (hopefully real) dining partners to ask if they need napkins, just to drive the point home. And much like love itself, chocolate cake can be a disappointing thing, appealing at first but rife with hidden pitfalls. Stiff or overly

sweet frosting or a plasticky or dry crumb can ruin the experience. That off-putting metallic taste associated with cheap grocery store chocolate cakes comes from the aluminum in some subpar baking powder. Chocolate, like love, is best when not overpowered by sugar, and both the cakes at Dulce and Counter Culture have a full-bodied tang, which Dulce achieves by adding sour cream to its frosting. And if you want to skip the gluten, there’s always flourless chocolate cake, though it is somewhat less poetic. It will not, however, irritate your system and send you to an early bed with regret, which sometimes is all you can ask from love as well.

In the top of the boiler or in the bowl, whisk together the sugar and egg yolks until smooth. Add the Champagne and whisk until smooth. Turn the heat to medium and continue to whisk until the mixture is light in color and has thickened to a soft, foamy cream, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly. In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the heavy cream to stiff peaks. Fold the cream into the Champagne cream. To assemble the trifle, cut the cooled chocolate cake into small cubes. In parfait glasses, layer cubes of chocolate cake, passion fruit curd and Champagne cream, repeating the layers until the glasses are filled. Garnish with fresh berries. Enjoy immediately or cover and chill for up to 8 hours.

A box of chocolates? A slice of chocolate cake? So very been-there-done-that. This Valentine’s Day, up the ante with your expression of love via chocolate. Rather than simply end the meal with a sweet hit of cocoa, why not use it as the inspiration for the entire menu? Start with slices of soft goat cheese sprinkled with a blend of unsweetened cocoa powder and chile powder, then topped with a Peppadew pepper. Then move on to our flank steak rubbed with ground cocoa nibs, coffee and pumpkin seeds. Accompany that with a warm, soft polenta spiked with chopped dates and cocoa butter. Then finish the meal with a simple chocolate tart, chocolate martinis, or a plate of dates and figs to dunk in a pot of hot fudge sauce.

Add the shallots and cook until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the milk and bring to a simmer. While whisking, pour the polenta in a thin stream into the simmering milk. Stir in the marjoram and the dates. Cook, stirring frequently, until thickened and the polenta is tender, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper.

5 free things in Austin, from Capitol to bat cave By Chris Tomlinson The Associated Press

A view from Buda Castle of the Hungarian parliament across the Danube, a spot that is typically crowded by tourists in the summer in Budapest, Hungary. Budapest’s character is revealed in the winter, when temperatures, crowd counts and prices are low.


In winter, Budapest becomes a bargain Story and photos by Seth Kugel The New York Times


n a drizzly mid-January evening, I stood at the arches of the wall of Buda Castle, overlooking the Danube and the 19th-century Chain Bridge that links Buda with Pest. Beyond the bridge, the mist turned the Hungarian parliament into a glowworm. My friend Eliza Muto, who studies and lives on the Pest side and had joined me for the walk, told me that the spot where we were standing becomes a crowded cafe in the warm weather. In other words, if it weren’t winter, I’d have been waiting — and paying — for the same view. Worse, I’d be alone. In the summer, Eliza refuses to come to Buda at all: too many tourists. I’m with her. I like European cities best in the cold weather, when the exuberance of flowering gardens and buzzing outdoor cafes cedes to a melancholy of skeletal trees and gloomy skies. It’s a bit like peeking backstage after a Broadway show, when the crowds are gone and the actors can revert to their makeup-free selves. But not all European cities are bargains, even in winter. The cost of a hostel bed in London could get me a lovely high-season hotel room in Guatemala. Still, with a budget goal of about $100 a day — flophouse and fish-and-chips territory in London — I spent what were, at least for me, a luxurious three days in Budapest, ordering appetizers and dessert without guilt, getting doses of local culture both high and low, and staying in a hotel that bills itself as “luxury boutique.” I practically didn’t recognize myself. The hotel, recommended by another friend, Neil Barnett, who had lived a decade in Budapest, was the Mamaison Hotel Andrassy (, on tony Andrassy Avenue; my huge, well-appointed room was just 14,000 forints (about $65 at 216 forints to the dollar) a day. A weekly transit pass set me back 4,950 forints, leaving me about 6,100 forints a day, about $28, for everything else. And yet, with the exception of one moment of largess, I made my budgetary goal. Luxury, of course, does not require unnecessary extravagance. When choosing which of Budapest’s thermal baths I would relax in, I eschewed more famous options for the relatively unknown Veli Bej Baths (irgalmas. hu/veli-bej-furdo), set under Ottoman-era cupolas and a bargain at 2,800 forints. When purchasing tickets at the Hungarian State Opera House (, I turned down the 11,500-forint orchestra seats for The Bat, Johann Strauss’ farcical operetta; my 4,500-forint seat provided fine views of both the show, presented in Hungarian, and the gilded grandeur of the space. Hungarian cuisine isn’t the biggest draw the city has to offer, though at the higher end it has come a long way in recent years, so I decided to aim for an all-Hungarian diet during my visit, testing whether that improvement is evident on a more budget-friendly level. Another friend, Nicolas Braun, a French teacher who is half-Hungarian, gathered a

AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas Capital, the Live Music Capital of the World, the Velvet Crown, Bat City or simply River City. Residents of Austin claim many titles and are known for their slogan: “Keep Austin Weird.” Some locals pejoratively call their hometown “festival city,” since there seems to be one every weekend, such as South by Southwest or Austin City Limits Music Festival. But most festival-goers don’t realize Austin is also home to the first photograph, a Gutenberg Bible and the world’s largest urban bat colony. And the best thing for a city that prides itself on environmentalism is that all of the sites can be visited in a single day’s walk, and all of them are free. The Harry Ransom Center Begin the morning on the southwest corner of the University of Texas at Austin campus, home to one of the largest archives in the world. The HRC holds 42 million manuscripts, a million rare books and 5 million photographs. Just inside the front door, visitors can enter a kiosk where a Gutenberg Bible, one of the first printed books, is on display. In a dimly lit alcove nearby, the world’s first photograph resides. The center holds regular multimedia exhibitions from the collection, with the one opening later this month titled, World at War: 1914-1918. The Texas Capitol From the Ransom Center, walk southeast about nine blocks to the big pink dome. The Texas Capitol opened in 1885, built from pink granite quarried in the Texas Hill Country. The dome is 15 feet taller than the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, and it faces south, to show solidarity with the Confederacy. The interior is filled with famous paintings and statues, and the grounds are home to dozens of statues, the state archives, a visitor’s center and the governor’s mansion. Downtown Austin The Capitol Complex sits at the north end of Congress Avenue, considered the main street of Texas. Walk south toward the lake, and just off Congress to the east, is the Sixth Street entertainment district, home to dozens of bars and restaurants. From Congress head west on Second Street, and find a series of sidewalk cafes, shopping and the Willie Nelson statue. Zilker Park Lady Bird Lake is the boundary between downtown and South Austin. From the 2ND Street District, walk along the north shore walking trail to the Pfluger Pedestrian bridge and cross over. A half-mile to the west is the 358-acre Zilker Park, home to the Austin City Limits Music Festival. The Zilker Botanical Garden and the spring-fed Barton Springs Pool charge admission but the nearby Austin Nature and Science Center is free. Bat colony at the Congress Avenue bridge With the sun beginning to set, walk east on the south side of the lake, past the Stevie Ray Vaughan statue to the Congress Avenue bridge. More than 1.5 million Mexican free-tail bats make their home in the nooks and crannies on the underside of the bridge from March through November. At dusk, the bats launch for their nightly search for insects, creating an hourlong spectacle of nature. Afterward, walk south to South Congress, where a dozen local restaurants and clubs offer a fitting end to the day.

group to go to Frici Papa Kifozdeje (fricipapa. hu/eng), a no-frills comfort food restaurant, with a vast menu of classics sold at extraordinarily low prices. We ordered mountains of soups and goulashes and fried appetizers and poppy-seed desserts. When the bill came to just 33,000 forints, I did something very out of character: I picked up the tab. Still, I had to admit that the food was bland (my dish, sonkaval, a croquette the size of a smushed tennis ball, filled with turkey breast, ham and cheese, was an exception) and I was down on Hungarian fare — until the next day at lunch. Before our walk Eliza and I went to Kadar Etterem, a Hungarian-Jewish spot with selfserve seltzer bottles on the table, red-andwhite checkered tablecloths and a packed crowd. Food was prepared with a far defter hand; I had matzo ball soup and boiled beef with horseradish, which sounds terrible but was excellent; Eliza ordered cholent, a thick bean stew, topped with a slice of meatloaf.

When I travel solo, I hate staying in at night, but European night life typically forces me to nurse beers. Not in Budapest. On Saturday, Nicolas led the way to Morrison’s Liget (, a 2-year-old sprawling nightclub south of the city, where nearly every man but us appeared to have just arrived from a weightlifting session at the gym. It was exactly the kind of place I would never go to in my home city and yet wouldn’t want to miss in a place I was visiting. Surprisingly, I felt perfectly comfortable. We mostly stuck to the largest of three dance spaces, where the DJ Szecsei (Sexy spelled out in Hungarian) provided the pulsing electronic music, assisted by lasers and smoke. But we ended the evening in another room, where American dance classics like “It’s Raining Men” alternated with modern Hungarian pop; people sang along across languages and across the decades. It was great fun — and not available in London at any price.
