More than twice as many concealed-carry permits were issued in New Mexico last year when state and federal policymakers considered whether to tighten firearms laws, government records show. The Department of Public Safety issued 10,601 licenses in 2013 compared with 4,793 the previous year, according to state records obtained by The Associated Press.

Santa Fe High School engineering teacher Dave Forester watches Braeden LaBounty, 17, work on a chess game that he made in Forester’s class. The school board is scheduled to vote on a plan that would put new technology in the hands of every student by 2015 and whether to approve an Education Technology Note to pay for the devices, training and facility ugrades involved. JANE PHILLIPS/THE NEW MEXICAN
Five-year plan would provide computers for all students; board to vote Tuesday By Robert Nott The New Mexican
sther Lescht and Braeden La Bounty have grown up in the digital world of iPhones, iPads, tablets, computers and YouTube. Using these resources to learn makes perfect sense to both Santa Fe High School juniors. “It doesn’t seem like a new thing to us,” La Bounty said as he sat in front of a computer screen in teacher Dave Forester’s engineering class on Thursday. “Not having [computers] would be pretty weird.” The two students and their peers discussed posting mini-essays on the impact of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech to a student-group blog for history teacher John Morrison. After watching video of the speech on YouTube, the students could then use the blog to exchange ideas and comment on one another’s work. “It’s easier for me to write my thoughts in a blog rather than stand in front of the class and express myself,” Lescht said. But not every student at Santa Fe High School — or at any of the district’s other schools — has ready access to a computer. And in those rare cases in which every student has a district-provided iPad — as in Santa Fe High science teacher Peter Graham’s class — mass iPad crashes have occurred due to a lack of sufficient Internet bandwidth. Within five years, however, Santa Fe Public Schools wants all 14,000 of its students to have a
computer or tablet, a plan that will cost between $50 million and $55 million. State law gives school districts the authority to increase property taxes for technology upgrades. The Educational Technology Note, as it is called, does not have to go to voters for approval but can be imposed by a majority vote of the Board of Education, although the board could call for a special general obligation bond election to raise the money instead. The board will make a decision regarding this plan — including possibly approving the Educational Technology Note — at Tuesday’s 5:30 p.m. meeting at the Educational Services Center on Alta Vista Street. If the plan is approved, taxes on a $300,000 home with a taxable valuation of $100,000 would increase $150 a year. The plan — which would also draw on funds from a February 2012 mill levy approved by voters — calls for professional-development training for teachers, installing updated fiber-optic cables in all facilities and placing an age-appropriate device — be it iPad, tablet or computer — in the hands of every student. The district estimates that 50 percent of the money will go to in-school equipment, with the other 50 percent targeted toward implementation, maintenance, networking and infrastructure. The district would start this coming fall by focusing on three new school sites: Atalaya Elementary School, Nina Otero Community School and El Camino Real Community School, which is replacing
Agua Fría Elementary School. It would then expand to schools being renovated — Kearny and Piñon elementary schools — and two middle schools in need of technology: De Vargas and Ortiz. Superintendent Joel Boyd said the second most common complaint he fields — after the issue of salaries — is from staffers who say the district’s technology is outdated or inconsistent. He and others acknowledge that many teachers are unable to use current technology due to insufficient infrastructure support. In a recent interview, Boyd said too many students within the district do not have Internet access at home and that the new plan will help “close economic gaps” between the haves and have-nots when it comes to equal use of computers. For children without Internet access, the new devices will allow them to download school material at the school library or at community hubs near schools so they can still work on projects. Boyd sees infinite possibilities here: “With a computer, you have every book at your fingertips.” He said the district could wait until its next general obligation bond cycle in 2017 to put the idea out to voters, but time is of the essence. “I keep hearing, ‘faster, faster, faster, more, more, more.’ Well, when it comes to technology, that means more money,” he said. Advocates claim today’s students are more easily

Efforts to reduce risk of destructive wildfire in rugged terrain ongoing By Staci Matlock
Dense vegetation, dry conditions threaten watershed
Close to a million acres in New Mexico have gone up in smoke in the last three years from wildfires. But there’s still plenty left to burn, especially near the fire-vulnerable watershed east of Santa Fe.
El Nuevo A-8
City and national forest crews have worked for more than a decade to reduce the wildfire risks in the Santa Fe Municipal Watershed. The watershed encompasses the Sangre de Cristo Mountain slopes and canyon that drain into the city’s two municipal reservoirs and the Santa Fe River. Officials worry a large, intense wildfire in the watershed followed by rain would wash ash and debris into the reservoirs, clogging them and requiring expensive work to clean the water. A heavy rain on burned slopes would also increase the risk of flooding into

downstream neighborhoods. Fire crews have cut and thinned trees and burned vegetation within about 10,000 acres of the lower watershed around the Nichols and McClure reservoirs, said Sandy Hurlocker, district ranger for the Española Ranger District of the Santa Fe National Forest. Some of it has been treated more than once. Firefighters burned 40 acres of piled branches and cut wood in the watershed last week. “We’re trying to get the condition of the watershed to the point where if there is a fire, it will stay

KIEV, Ukraine — Anti-government demonstrators in Ukraine’s capital ended their nearly three-month occupation of Kiev City Hall on Sunday as promised in exchange for the release of all 234 jailed protesters. But tensions remained high as hundreds stayed outside the building, vowing to retake it if the government failed to drop all charges against the protesters. Late that night, after a meeting with opposition leaders, Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka said the criminal cases would be closed Monday. Prospects for an easing of the standoff between the opposition and President Viktor Yanukovych, however, were still unclear. Yanukovych is expected to nominate a new prime minister in the near future, and Western officials have been advocating for a coalition government drawn from the ruling party and the opposition.
SUNBURY, Pa. — The FBI says it is willing to help investigate claims by a 19-year-old woman charged in a Pennsylvania murder case that she killed more than 20 other people. Carrie Adamowski, spokeswoman for the FBI in Philadelphia, said Monday the agency has been in contact with local police in Sunbury and will offer any assistance that they request. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Miranda Barbour and her husband, Elytte Barbour, who are charged with killing a stranger they allegedly lured through a Craiglist ad. Miranda Barbour told The Daily Item in Sunbury in a jailhouse interview that she had previously killed more than 20 people across the country as part of her involvement in a satanic cult.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A verdict in the city of Jacksonville is again raising the issue of self-defense and race in Florida, just seven months after George Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting of a black teenager, Trayvon Martin. Michael Dunn, a white 47-year-old software developer, could face 60 years in prison following his conviction Saturday on multiple counts of attempted murder for shooting into a carful of teenagers outside a Jacksonville convenience store in 2012. Jordan Davis, a black 17-year-old, was killed in the shooting, but the jury couldn’t reach a verdict on the firstdegree murder charge against Dunn. A mistrial was declared on that count. The verdict is a far cry from one delivered in the Zimmerman case, when he was acquitted in July in the shooting death of 17-year-old Martin in Sanford, about 125 miles south of Jacksonville. Following an argument over loud music coming from the car that Davis was in, Dunn said he shot at the car with his 9 mm handgun — he said he was afraid and thought he saw a shotgun in the car.

CAIRO — An explosion tore through a bus filled with South Korean sightseers in the Sinai Peninsula on Sunday, killing at least four people and raising fears that Islamic militants have renewed a bloody campaign to wreck Egypt’s tourism industry. The bombing near the tip of the Red Sea’s Gulf of Aqaba was the first attack against tourists in Sinai in nearly a decade. There was no immediate claim of responsibility. But the blast bore the hallmarks of attacks blamed on the al-Qaida-linked militant groups that have been battling government forces in Sinai’s restive north for years. At least three South Korean tourists were killed and 12 seriously wounded, according to Egyptian security officials. The Egyptian bus driver was also among the dead, the officials said.

A story on Page A-1 of the Feb. 15, 2014, edition of The New Mexican about a proposed electricity rate discount for big businesses incorrectly stated that the discounted rate for large businesses would cost other ratepayers an estimated 0.2 cents more for every 600 kilowatt-hours used, or about $3.24 a month, based on estimates. PNM estimates the cost of the discount to residential customers would add between 2 cents and $3.24 to the monthly bill for every 600 kilowatt-hours used. The added cost to residential customers will depend on how much power PNM discounts for large electricity users up to a five percent cap.

cious metal from the shafts. Authorities suspect the miners in Benoni were robbed by a rival group that blocked the mine exit, reported Eyewitness News, a South African media outlet. Illegal mining remains a serious concern, despite progress in curbing it, South Africa’s mineral resources department said in a statement. It attributed the improvement to “illegal mining forums,” in which stakeholders in the mining industry seal open shafts and seek to detain illegal miners, according to the South African Press Association. Some analysts say the problem could increase if legal mines close or downsize, forcing skilled workers who have lost their jobs to turn to illegal activities. South Africa’s mining industry, a pillar of the economy, is struggling with rising costs. Tens of thousands of workers in the platinum sector are currently on strike.

The U.S.-China statement issued just after Kerry left Beijing on Saturday said the two countries agreed on steps to carry out commitments to curb greenhouse gases, including reducing vehicle emissions, improving energy efficiency of buildings and other measures. Beijing and Washington launched a climate change discussion last year, promising progress in five areas: reducing vehicle emissions; advanced electric power grids; capturing and storing carbon emissions; gathering greenhouse gas data; and building efficiency. Kerry was in Indonesia on the last leg of a three-nation tour of Asia that started in South Korea. After leaving Indonesia on Monday, he planned to visit Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. Before the climate change speech, Kerry toured Jakarta’s Istiqlal Mosque, one of the largest in the world, to pay his respects to Indonesia’s Muslim majority population.

Western states prepare for landmark year in fires By Reid Wilson
The Washington Post
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — On the first Sunday in January, Tom Hein stood on the tarmac in Humboldt County, in Northern California, watching an air tanker come in for a landing. The Grumman S-2T was one of three tankers working to put out the “Red Fire,” a blaze that caught on a mountain ridge the previous day. Hein snapped a picture of the tanker and the fire in the distance on his camera phone, which he sent to his boss: “January in Rohnerville,” the caption read. The fire, Hein said later, is one he will remember. It wasn’t the largest fire of the year, and it didn’t claim any lives. But it burned 333 acres in Humboldt County — one of the wettest places in America. The county, which averages more than 100 inches of rain every year, is dry as a bone. “We’re seeing summertime weather conditions in January,” Hein said as two of his crews continued to mop up the smoking remnants of the Red Fire. “If we don’t get some rain now, just imagine what the summer is going to be like.” Across the Western United States, officials tasked with fighting forest fires worry that a confluence of factors, including climate change and human development, are conspiring to create conditions ripe for a landmark fire year. That would mean hotter fires that burn longer and threaten more homes, sapping already-strained budgets and putting at risk the lives of thousands of firefighters. President Barack Obama traveled to Fresno, Calif., on Friday to meet with farmers and others coping with the

impact of the ongoing drought. “Things really are at critical levels in parts of the West, and while we’re hoping and praying for rain and some moisture, we are very worried,” said Tom Harbour, the U.S. Forest Service’s National Director of Fire and Aviation Management. The lack of precipitation has already become a national emergency. A threeyear drought that has spread across the West has dried out the fuel — trees, shrubs and grasses — that feeds fires. The drought is particularly acute in California, where the snowpack in the Sierra Nevada mountains is at just 12 percent of the annual average. Several rural California counties are within a few months of running out of water altogether. Snowpack across the Cascades in Washington and Oregon is also far below normal levels, according to data maintained by the Water and Climate Center, a division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture based in Portland, Ore. The severity and breadth of fire activity has increased dramatically in recent decades. More man-made structures are burning now than ever before, and more fire fighters are dying. In the 1980s, wildfires burned an average of 2.98 million acres every year. Between 2003 and 2012, an average of 7.26 million acres burned per year. Parts of the West are experiencing the driest 15-year period in 1,200 years. “In my conversations with officials from the states, they are all dealing with climate change. I can’t recall a conversation that has been any kind of a debate about whether this is effecting our landscapes. I don’t think there is a debate,” Interior Secretary Sally Jewell said in a recent interview. “They’re dealing, in
these Western states, with some real extremes.” The consequences of climate change encourage wildfires in three ways, firefighters and policymakers say. First, even modest rises in temperatures change forest ecologies and allow invasive species to take root. Second, changing weather patterns can stem much-needed precipitation. And third, global warming is extending the fire season. In the last four decades, the average fire season has grown by 78 days — more than a fifth of a year. If temperature trends continue, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warns, the fire season across Canada, Russia and the United States could expand by another month over the next five decades. While winter was once the time when fire agencies repaired aircraft and cut seasonal staff, states like California have had to keep their aircraft operating all year round. Climate scientists believe a reduction in polar ice is changing atmospheric circulation patterns, which could contribute to a slowing of the jet stream, contributing to colder, wetter weather in the Eastern United States and more persistently dry conditions in the West. Rising temperatures have aided invasive pests like the mountain pine beetle in the Pacific Northwest and the goldspotted oak borer in Southern California, which turn living trees that could survive a fire into dead, dry, 20-foot tall matchsticks. Scientists hope this winter’s freezing temperatures have temporarily stemmed the spread of those bugs, though there is no way to be certain. Higher temperatures means plant life once confined to more southern
climates is creeping northward. Those new species can burn faster and at higher intensity than the species they are driving out. “As the temperature has gradually changed, we’re kind of seeing this changing vegetation dynamic,” said Ken Pimlott, director of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, known as CalFire. “We’re seeing trees throughout the foothills here, what’s called grey pine, they’re slowly dying off. They’re being replaced by brush and vegetation. That kind of a change leads to more flammable vegetation in these traditional elevations that would normally be cooler, more moist.” Fire is a natural phenomenon. It sweeps through forests on a regular basis, clearing out debris and dead foliage, refreshing vegetation and revitalizing the land. But the fire cycle is accelerating, especially in the Rocky Mountains. Reduced precipitation means forests that once burned every 100 to 150 years are now burning much more frequently. The climate, which for millenia has acted as a curb on fire activity, is becoming an accelerant. “At some point in the not so distant future, the next few decades probably, climate will no longer be the overriding constraint on the system’s ability to burn,” said Anthony Westerling, an associate professor at the University of California Merced and a faculty member at the Sierra Nevada Research Institute. “It will be dry enough in most years. The constraint will be how much fuel is on the ground.” The federal agency at the center of the fight to suppress wildfires is the National Interagency Fire Center, headquartered in a low, concrete twostory building next to the international
airport in Boise, Idaho. It overlooks a small memorial park dedicated to fallen firefighters. In Washington, Harbour wakes early to read reports on weather patterns and other data coming from Boise. And in state capitals across the country, fire chiefs like Pimlott manage their land, and their fire crews, while interacting with their federal partners. Between the federal, state and local offices, managers oversee 56,000 wildland fire fighters, with help from about 100,000 local fire fighters dedicated to protecting man-made structures. At the height of fire season, those numbers swell. Their jobs are getting harder. The recovering economy is driving a new housing boom in the buffer zone between unoccupied forest land and human settlements. As more subdivisions crop up in the suburbs of Seattle and Sacramento and in the resort towns of Sun Valley, Idaho, and Jackson Hole, Wyo., more than half the fires fought by the government now involve human structures. In parts of California, the cost of defending a single home can run as high as $600,000 — far more than many of the homes are actually worth. And while homeowners are able to get out before a fire sweeps over them, the firefighters who have to defend those homes wade into danger. Last year was especially brutal: In June 2013, 19 members of the Prescott Fire Department’s Granite Mountain Hotshots died after being trapped by a fast-moving fire while trying to protect human structures in Yarnell, a tiny town of 649 people. It was the worst single incident for wildland firefighters since a 1933 blaze in California killed 25.

Continued from Page A-1 through the tops of trees at a breathtaking speed, according to fire managers. Hurlocker said the next step is to create a buffer between the treated lower watershed and the high-elevation Pecos Wilderness. He said the Forest Service hopes to use prescribed burns started from a helicopter to treat about 2,900 acres in a band across the watershed from 7,000 to the 10,000 feet in elevation. Above that is the wilderness, which the Forest Service, by law, can’t thin with machines or chain saws. Hurlocker said the Santa Fe National Forest has completed an environmental assessment of the project that should be ready for public review in March. About 6,000 acres in the wilderness around Lake Peak and Penitente Peak won’t be treated at all. He said that until the past few years, the high elevations in the wilderness rarely burned. The mountain snowpack usually kept the spruce and fir forests wet. “There was a lot of heavy fuels but also a lot of moisture,” Hurlocker said. “But drought over the last three years kind of nullified that effect, as saw with the Jaroso Fire last year.” Lightning sparked the Jaroso Fire, which burned 11,149 acres in the highelevation spruce and fir forest in the Pecos Wilderness of the Santa Fe National Forest. The area is so rugged and has so little road access that fire managers couldn’t safely put firefighters close enough to battle the blaze. Firefighters monitored the blaze from the air instead and stood ready to fight it if the fire threatened towns. Hurlocker said crews would face a similar situation if a fire were to start in the wilderness or upper, untreated portion of the Santa Fe Municipal Watershed. “We want to create a buffer,” he said. “There are no roads in the area. It would be hard to get crews in there. And there are no safety zones. The way it is now, we couldn’t put anyone in there.” A safety zone is a cleared or protected area near a fire where a crew can find relative safety if a fire burns out of control and threatens to trap them. Fire crew leaders identify these safety zones before firefighters tackle any wildfire. Managing the forests, whether in the Santa Fe Municipal Watershed or elsewhere in Northern New Mexico, is a fine balance. The mixed conifer and ponderosa pine forests in the watershed are no stranger to fires. For centuries, wildfires periodically burned through the forests, up until the last 100 years, according to tree-ring scientists. Trees and other vegetation along the mountainsides in the watershed are a dual safety net for Santa Feans. The vegetation, pine needles and carpet of duff on the ground holds snowpack until it melts, then slows the speed of the runoff into the reservoirs. The combination does the same for rain. The deep web of tree and vegetation roots also protects

the soil and prevents it from eroding into the reservoirs or downstream. But fire managers say too many trees aren’t good. Decades of fire prevention, grazing and logging created conditions in many forests that, compounded now by drought, have created the perfect place for huge, intense wildfires. Fire managers say there’s a need to thin the trees to reduce the risk of huge forest fires. Crown fires and high-intensity fires can burn so hot they melt soil and increase the risk of catastrophic flooding because they eliminate the vegetation that would otherwise slow down the water. Flooding after the Las Conchas Fire of 2011 wiped out the historic Dixon orchard and destroyed portions

of Santa Clara Canyon. Residents in Pecos Canyon had to deal with flooding after the Tres Lagunas Fire last year. Forest managers want to recreate forest conditions that once allowed frequent, low-intensity fires to naturally thin the trees. While winter isn’t over, New Mexico already has had more than two dozen wildfires on public and private land since Jan. 1. Most were only a couple of acres or less. Fire season could start earlier than normal this spring in Eastern New Mexico and West Texas, driven by drought, grass and wind, according to the Feb. 1 national fire outlook produced each month by the National Interagency Fire Center’s Predictive
Services. But spring rains in the longrange forecast could reduce the threat, according to the report. The next fire forecast is due March 1. On Sunday, a fire broke out south of Albuquerque on agricultural land on the Isleta Pueblo, according to KOATTV. The fire, fueled by 30 mph winds, moved east and jumped the Rio Grande in the bosque and was still raging as darkness fell. A second, smaller fire that also started on pueblo land was reportedly put out by fire crews earlier in the day. Last year, a total of 1,064 fires in New Mexico burned 221,951 acres of public land alone. A total of 317,000 acres burned last year in the eight largest wildfires in New
Mexico and Arizona combined, according to a report released Feb. 13 by the Forest Guild. The fires destroyed 75 percent or more of the tree canopy on about 100,000 of those acres. Almost a third of the acres burned had densely overgrown forests or other conditions that made them unhealthy. Half of the fires, including the Las Conchas blaze in the Jemez Mountains and the Tres Lagunas Fire in the Pecos Canyon, burned over portions of previous fire scars.

Critics point to the cost of such programs as well as the fear that computers will replace teachers in the learning environment. Other concerns include the possibility of savvy students using the hardware for purposes other than learning — playing video games and accessing social media websites, for instance — or of kids inadvertently damaging expensive equipment. Graham and fellow Santa Fe High science teacher and Derek Buschman — both of whom are already using computer technology in their classes — caution that the proper professional development practices must be put in place to ensure that instructors understand the system.

Alternate budget proposal clears Senate Finance Committee Measure would let school districts choose to take part in reform initiatives By Patrick Malone The New Mexican
School districts could take or leave the education reform initiatives Gov. Susana Martinez is promoting under an alternate budget proposal unveiled Sunday in the New Mexico Senate. While the House budget wallows in gridlock over the Republican governor’s education agenda, the Senate could vote as soon as Monday on its own spending plan with hopes that the
Senate passes indigent care bill
The Senate passed a measure Sunday that aims to keep struggling New Mexico hospitals open by directing the state Human Services Department to reach for its wallet to cover indigent care costs. In July 2015, the federal government will cease providing the Sole Community Provider funding stream that hospitals have come to rely on to provide care to indigent patients. Counties historically have voluntarily contributed 0.063 percent of gross receipts tax to supplement support for that cause, a portion of the 0.125 percent of gross receipts tax counties spend on mandated services associated with indigent health care. Coming into Sunday’s debate, Senate Bill 268 would have authorized counties to increase gross receipts taxes by 0.125 percent more to pay for indigent care at hospitals. Hospitals favored that level of taxing authority. But bill sponsor Sen. Nancy Rodriguez, D-Santa Fe, said hiking the counties’ taxing authority to that level would only serve to divert indigent-care funds to hospitals at the expense of other indigent-care services counties are required by law to provide. She amended the bill to limit the counties’ taxing authority for purposes of indigent care at hospitals to 0.083 for
Legislature can agree to a $6.2 billion package before the 30-day session ends at noon Thursday. Budget discussions in the House broke down more than a week ago along near party lines over $20 million the governor and House Republicans wanted to give the Public Education Department to implement merit pay for teachers and principals, teacher evaluations, online portals for parents to check students’ progress and other steps aimed at improving students’ academic performance. Democrats favored leaving discretion over those funds in the hands of school districts. By a 9-0 vote Sunday, the Senate Finance Committee forwarded Senate Bill 313 to the full Senate with a up to three years. The Senate passed the bill 38-4 at that level of county taxing authority, with another amendment that required the Human Services Department to find millions of dollars in its budget for the indigent-care program.
Senate OKs local option for tax hike The Senate passed a bill Sunday that would allow counties to impose an excise tax on liquor to fund drug and alcohol treatment and prevention programs. SB 263 would authorize county commissioners to ask their local voters to raise taxes by up to about 5 cents per bottle of beer, glass of wine or cocktail. The bill’s sponsor, Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez, D-Belen, said McKinley County inspired the legislation. It imposed a tax on alcohol to fund substance-abuse treatment and prevention programs a decade ago and has experienced dramatic decreases in drunken-driving deaths and arrests. Questionable spending within the McKinley County program worried some Republican senators, and others objected to the tax increase and its potential impact on businesses. Democrats defended the legislation as a local option with proven success reducing substance abuse. The bill passed 27-14, with nine Republicans and five Democrats voting against it. Now it moves to the House. The New Mexican
“do pass” recommendation. The Senate budget aims to strike a balance between the clashing ideologies that doomed the House budget. It would provide $17.5 million to the Public Education Department for the governor’s favored reforms. However, individual school districts would be able to decide whether to take part in the initiatives, and likely would need to negotiate them with their local teachers unions. “[Reform initiatives] would be administered through the local school districts where there are collective bargaining agreements. They would, in effect, bargain for those,” said Senate Finance Committee member Sen. Carlos Cisneros, D-Questa. “It meets, I think, a midway point between extremes. It settles
at least most of the controversial issues, which were predominantly about ideology more than money.” The Governor’s Office is reviewing the latest proposal and revealed little about its initial perception of it. “We’ve been able to review part of the [Senate] budget proposal, but are continuing to review language and other aspects of it,” Martinez’s spokesman, Enrique Knell, said in an email. “There is, of course, a long way left to go in the process.” The Senate budget also calls for $11.5 million to support the lottery scholarship program at its current level through the spring semester of 2015. Revenue declines for the lotteryfunded scholarships to in-state stu-
dents have left it underfunded to meet its obligation. Numerous bills aiming to improve the fund’s long-term prospects for solvency are pending in the Legislature. Some options under consideration include reducing tuition awards and length of the scholarships, raising the qualifying grade-point average and other steps to mitigate the fund’s future obligations. “We can’t guarantee that any of the lottery scholarship bills will pass,” Cisneros said. “Should they not, there’s money in this budget to offset that margin.” Contact Patrick Malone at 986-3017 or email@example.com.

While state lawmakers can request an opinion from the attorney general, these opinions do not carry the force of law. So far the Attorney General’s Office has not issued a response to Lopez’s query. State law allows unconfirmed Cabinet secretaries to serve until the Senate makes a final vote. Democrats hold a 25-17 advantage in the Senate. If that body votes to not confirm Skandera, she will immediately be removed from her post — although the governor could then keep Skandera on in another position, such as deputy secretary. Larry Behrens, spokesman for the Public Education Department, said via email Sunday that Skandera has broad support from education and business leaders within New Mexico. “She is well-qualified for a position she has held for three years now and if she wasn’t, the Senate would have taken action long ago,” he said. “Last year, Senator Lopez staged a politically motivated and prolonged political circus at taxpayer expense that did nothing to help improve student achievement in New Mexico.” He said Skandera is looking forward to a “fair confirmation process.” Contact Robert Nott at 986-3021 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

HOW DO YOU MISS A BILLION DOLLARS? That’s how much was left behind when Americans prepared their own tax returns last year.
“My broker sold some stock this year and reinvested the money in another stock – I never got any money, so it’s not taxable, right?” stock sales (outside of retirement accounts) are required to be reported. gain or loss on each individual stock transaction stands on its own. sales of mutual funds also apply here.

“I don’t have to pay taxes on my social security benefits.” unfortunately, social security benefits may be required to be included in income. The amount, if any, is based on the amount of all other income as required to be reported on the tax return. The maximum amount of social security benefits that may be included in income is 85 percent. “I own an s Corporation and was told I can take dividends in lieu of wages and save myself payroll taxes”. In regard to monies paid to shareholders/ employees of an s Corporation, reasonable compensation must be paid before any dividends or loan repayments are permitted. Failure to properly report wages could result in a reclassification of the dividends/ loan repayments as wages and subject you to penalties. “I am a student who only works part-time, so I don’t have to file a tax return.” In addition to age, tax filing requirements are reliant on filing status, dependency status, amount of income and whether it is earned or unearned. student status is not a factor. “My relative lives in one of my rentals but pays little if any rent. I can still treat it as a rental since I have so many expenses.” renting to relatives at amounts below fair market rental value is subject to limitations in that expenses cannot exceed income. There may be other limitations as well. The Tax Court has suggested that for a family member, a fair rent may be up to 20 percent less than market rent.

another taxpayer misconception is that tax preparers simply fill out forms and push a button. The real value of licensed professionals is that they keep up with countless tax laws and regulations and have the expertise to know how to apply these rules for the benefit of the taxpayer. a good preparer will provide you with a checklist that will help reveal missing documents or information so that a complete and accurate tax return is prepared. It is important to note that no matter who prepares your taxes, you are the one who is legally responsible for what’s on your return—making it even more important to hire a licensed tax professional. This brings us to one more misconception: that all return preparers are federally licensed. In fact, the only federally-licensed tax professionals are enrolled agents (Eas), who must pass a rigorous, three-part competency test and a background check. And in order to maintain the enrolled agent license, Eas must complete annual continuing education requirements in tax law and ethics. To find an Ea in your area, go to the “Find an Ea” directory at www.naea.org. about the National association of Enrolled agents (NaEa): NaEa is a non-profit membership organization composed of tax specialists licensed by the us Department of the Treasury.

My wife and I separated last year and lived apart for most of the year. I should be able to file single now, correct?” Couples who are not legally divorced or separated as of the end of the year are precluded from filing single. unfortunately, taxpayers who prepare their own returns or deal with unlicensed preparers may fail to include important information simply because they overlook it, a document was never received, or more commonly, just from lack of knowledge of the tax laws.

“My uncle has a foreign bank account and I’m also a signer on it – but he owns the account. I don’t have to disclose this information on my tax return since I don’t own the account.” Full disclosure of foreign accounts is an area that is under heavy scrutiny right now. There are several factors in determining disclosure of these accounts/assets. The penalties for failure to disclose are severe.

Financial planner = financial doctor Financial planners are a little like family doctors. They can be generalists or specialists, and the best ones help you keep your affairs nicely in balance so that you can live a long, enjoyable life. Legitimate professional financial planners have a college diploma or university degree, along with specialized training. Ask which professional
associations they belong to. Be sure to check that their advice is given independently; that means find out who pays them. It is recommended that you meet at least once a year with your financial planner, so that they can put a human face to your file and so that you can continue to be assured that he or she is a trustworthy professional.

EL NUEVO MEXICANO Hombre recibe Estrella de Bronce Por Robert Nott The New Mexican
l oriundo de Santa Fe Philip Aubrey — actualmente un sargento del Ejército Norteamericano — se unió a la Guardia Nacional en el 2000 mientras asistía a Santa Fe High School. Entonces, él sólo tenía una meta: “No veía la hora de salir de Santa Fe. Estaba contando los días,” comparte durante una entrevista telefónica. Pero después de su servicio de 13 años en el Ejército, incluso algunos combates en el exterior, Aubrey se dio cuenta de que no hay mejor lugar que su casa. “Irónicamente, para muchos de nosotros que estábamos ansiosos por salir, ahora lo único que queríamos era regresar. Mi esposa y yo bromeamos porque cada vez que el Ejército nos da la oportunidad de ir a algún lado, siempre pensamos en regresar a Santa Fe.” Hace sólo unas semanas, Aubrey recibió la medalla Estrella de Bronce al valor en Fort Bragg, N.C., donde vive con su esposa, Emma, dos perros y tres gatos. De los 32 años de edad, sirve en la Brigada Médica del Ejército. Al principio, el deseaba ser un oficial naval y después trató de unirse a las Fuerzas Especiales del Ejército. Pero el destino tenía otros planes para Aubrey al igual que otros factores — incluyendo un cuello roto mientras participaba en un simulacro de las Fuerzas Especiales — lo mantuvieron trabajando como médico del Ejército. Se unió a la Guardia Nacional del Ejército en Nuevo México como médico en combate porque necesitaba el dinero para asistir a la universidad. “Me dieron una asignación, lo cual hizo imposible que terminara la escuela a tiempo,” recuerda. Una asignación dio paso a otra, incluidas la Operaciones Libertad Iraquí y Nuevo Amanecer — ambas en Irak – Operación Resistiendo la Libertad en Afganistán y Operación Más Allá del Horizonte en Trinidad. Este veterano militar, con su pecho condecorado de medallas de servicio, recuerda haber sido un adolecente muy
Olimpíadas aumentan ganancias de Aeroflot Por Elena Popina y Halia Pavliva
OAO Aeroflot y Yandex NV son dos de las compañías rusas que más podrán beneficiarse con las Olimpíadas de Invierno de Sochi, según Otkritie Financial Corp. Si bien ayer Moody’s Investors Service dijo que es improbable que las Olimpíadas den lugar a un crecimiento más veloz en Rusia, los juegos generarán mayores ganancias para Aeroflot, la línea aérea más grande del país, y Yandex, el principal servicio de motor de búsqueda online, según Otkritie. Aeroflot aumentó la cantidad de vuelos diarios regulares de Moscú a Sochi de cinco a quince, según los datos que aparecen en su sitio web. Aeroflot dio un salto de 56 por ciento en Moscú desde fines de agosto. Yandex, que se duplicó el año pasado, tuvo un alza de 1.1 por ciento. El Índice Bloomberg Russia-US Equity de las acciones rusas más negociadas en los Estados Unidos avanzó 1 por ciento, mientras que los futuros sobre índices accionarios de la RTS subieron 0,2 por ciento, a 131.970. “Sus ingresos aumentarán aunque el impacto de los juegos en la economía total por ahora no sea significativo,” dijo Vladimir Tikhomirov, economista jefe de Otkritie, en una entrevista telefónica desde Moscú. “Hay muchas personas que vienen a los juegos. Todas usarán electricidad, transporte y otros servicios, y todas enviarán fotos a través del teléfono celular, llamarán a sus familiares y amigos en el extranjero y navegarán en Internet.” El gobierno prevé que 3 millones de turistas viajarán a ver los juegos en Sochi. Las Olimpíadas de Invierno 2014, que costaron alrededor de U.S. $50.000 millones, son la mayor inversión individual en infraestructura desde la caída de la Unión Soviética en 1991.
inquieto. “Nada peor que ausentismo escolar, quedarse rondando por las calles hasta tarde y manejar a alta velocidad,” dice. “Pasé mucho de mi tiempo en la preparatoria con el Cuerpo de Reserva [ROTC por sus siglas en inglés]. Quizá eso fue lo que me definió en la preparatoria.” Aún recuerda con cariño a dos maestras que dejaron una huella en él: la maestra Gutiérrez, su maestra de quinto grado en Atalaya Elementary School y la maestra Joan Kendrick, su maestra de inglés en la Santa Fe High School. Gutiérrez, dice, “fue una de las mejores maestras que he tenido. Hacía las clases interesantes y divertidas. Sabías que estabas con alguien que realmente se preocupaba por ti.” Respecto a Kendrick, “Quizá ella es la responsable de mi interés y apreciación por la escritura y la lectura.” En conversación telefónica, Kendrick comentó que todavía recuerda a Aubrey como un estudiante memorable porque él era “un poco más serio pensando sobre su vida que muchos de los estudiantes de su edad. Era honesto, directo y compasivo con sus compañeros.” Aubrey y su esposa intentan operar un centro de terapia para los veteranos que han sufrido de trastornos causados por el estrés postraumático. “Hay un estigma en el ejército contra buscar ayuda y hay mucha gente que lo necesita. En el ojo público, todos asumen que hay algo mal en ti, pero nadie quiere hacer algo al respecto.” Su madre, Karen Aubrey, vive y trabaja actualmente en Santa Fe como abogada. “Me siento afortunado de haber salido de Santa Fe y vivido la vida que llevé, ahora me encantaría regresar,” dice. “Santa Fe tiene su propia energía. No hay muchos lugares en el mundo donde tus papás te pueden dejar vagar con un galón de agua y caminar todo el día en las montañas. Esa independencia y apreciación por la naturaleza en un regalo que me dio Santa Fe.” Traducción de Patricia De Dios para The New Mexican.

n día de Lent, Canutito came up to grampo después de la cena. Grama Cuca estaba washing los dishes en el sink and Grampo Caralampio estaba playing cards en la mesa. Canutito looked at grampo at said, “Oiga, grampo, I thought que you were going de hacer give up playing a la baraja como your Lenten sacrificio.” “I was, m’hijo,” grampo replied, “pero then hize realize que si if stopped Larry Torres jugando a la baraja después Growing up de dinner, I Spanglish would have to ayudarle a tu grama wash los trastes and I think que Jesus only asks por so much sacrificio pero he also wants us de estar contentos so I gave up putting mis manos into hot water instead and si hago wash dishes entonces, I am sinning.” “¡Convenencias!” Grama Cuca called to him desde el fregadero. “Tú no haces sacrifice; tú haces find ways to give up todas las cosas que you don’t like to do anyway! I’m sure de que Jesús no tenía trouble trying to get a sus apóstoles to do what he wanted.” “Did Jesus really have trouble con los apostles, grampo?” Canutito asked a su grandfather. “Sí señor,” Grampo Caralampio affirmed Canutito. “Los twelve apóstoles tenían un rebellious streak y no siempre querían hacer lo que Jesus asked of them. “Really, grampo?” Canutito asked him. “Did los apóstoles resistir Jesus’ commands? ¿Por qué did they do that?” “Es porque he didn’t know cómo hacer ask por bien,” grampo said. “Primero he said to them ‘Muchachos, would you please go traer some firewood para hacer dinner?’ And when they asked him ‘Who says?’ He answered ‘Andrew says’ — pero no, they wouldn’t move ni un muscle.” “Entonces Jesús asked a sus apóstoles, ‘Muchachos would go please go y hacer fish en el Sea of Galilee for truchas to eat?’ Pero los apóstoles asked Jesus, ‘Who says?’ and he answered ‘James says,’ and they replied ‘Sorry!’ — y no fueron.” Then Jesús tried to get a los apóstoles to cooperar con él once again. He said to them, ‘Vayan al río and get me some agua to change into vino.’ Otra vez los apóstoles asked him, ‘Who says?’ y Jesús respondió, ‘Matthew says,’ — y once again the apostles no querían ir and they said, ‘Lo siento.’ ” “What were los apóstoles waiting for, grampo?” Canutito asked a su grampo. “Jesús estaba asking real nice y hasta dijo ‘please’ to them.” “Sí,” grampo agreed, “pero los apostles estaban esperando something else. Entonces Jesús asked them, ‘Muchachos, por el amor de Dios, would you please go give some dinero to los pobres who don’t have nada?’ Pero cuando los apóstoles asked him again, ‘Who says?’ and he answered ‘Judas says,’ they answered ‘Absolutamente no’ — and they wouldn’t do lo que Jesús les pedía.” Canutito wracked su brain, trying to figure out lo que Jesus was doing wrong pero no podía hacer figure out por qué los apóstoles estaban todos rebellious. Jesús was being polite pero los apóstoles were just más stubborn que una mula. Finally Jesús hizo pray muncho antes de hacer ask a sus apóstoles to do un favor para él. So he approached a los doce muchachos and said, ‘Please, please, please, con un poquito de sugar on top, would you please hacer pray conmigo?’ Los apostles hicieron shrug los shoulders and asked him otra vez, ‘Who says?’ Entonces Jesús answered, ‘Simon says.’ –That’s when the los apostles all jumped up and did lo qué Jesus wanted.” “Pero, por qué, grampo?” Canutito asked him, todo confused. “Porque, he said ‘Simon says’ primero,” grampo answered. Canutito groaned …

‘Final Fantasy XIII’ fizzles at the finish line

Tweeting for Olympians Some athletes turning over their social media accounts to sponsors By John Leicester
The Associated Press
OCHI, Russia — Between photos and insights about their Olympic experience, some Olympians are turning over their social media accounts to sponsors, agreeing to quotas of postings on Twitter and Facebook and letting other people send commercial messages in their name. The agents for U.S. figure skaters Ashley Wagner and Gracie Gold both say sponsors draft some of their tweets, plugging their brands. “This is the first Olympics where I actually have a social media calendar, where an athlete has to tweet or mention something on a given day,” Gold’s agent, Yuki Saegusa, said in an interview. “We get a list of tweets or social media things that need to be posted and then we approve them for her,” said Saegusa, senior vice president for Olympic clients at sports management giant IMG. Although they “encourage” Gold to post the prepackaged commercial tweets to her 65,000 followers herself, sometimes others do it for her. “We want it to be from her point of view, and from her mouth and from her fingers. So we try to get her to do them — mostly,” Saegusa said. “We’re in a very new age now where a lot of advertising, or PR,

or promotions, is social media. That’s becoming a very important aspect of marketing.” Wagner’s IMG agent, David Baden, said athletes’ sponsorship deals are now starting to specify “how many tweets, how many Facebook mentions and even Instagram” photos they must post. “That is part of the contract now. That is how important social media has become,” he said. “The last Olympics, that
was not the case.” Baden, an IMG vice president for Olympic clients, worked with skating bronze medalist Joannie Rochette at the 2010 Vancouver Games. He said they have access to Wagner’s account, so they can post commercial tweets to her 60,000 followers. “It’s not like Ashley doesn’t know about these. I mean we send her all these. She had to approve
all of them, and so it’s not that she does not know what is being said. She’s seen it. She’s part of this whole process,” he said. “It’s just that with her schedule, and if we can make things easier, what’s the difference?” Sponsors make sure schedules of tweets are adhered to. “We’ll get a message, usually, from the sponsor, and just say[ing] ‘Just reminding you this week, these tweets,” he said. “I’ll send it to my assistant. And she’ll just say; ‘Yes, I have it already in queue to do it.’ ” The agents did not specify which of their athletes’ tweets in recent months were drafted and posted on their behalf. The verified accounts of both Gold and Wagner — GraceEGold and AshWagner2010 — have referenced their own and U.S. Olympic Committee sponsors, in tweets and re-tweets. It’s not clear which recent postings were paid for, but after the Feb. 7 opening ceremony, Gold sent out an Instagram photo of herself holding a lipstick applier. “Couldn’t forget the red lips,” it read. As well as CoverGirl, her Twitter profile lists other sponsors: Visa, United Airlines, Procter & Gamble Family, Smucker’s, Pandora Jewelry and Airweave. Baden says to fulfill their contracts, simply retweeting a tweet first sent by a sponsor isn’t sufficient. When on one occasion he used his own account to send a sponsor’s tweet and then asked Wagner to retweet it, “they called me and said, ‘No, no. No retweets. It has to come from her.’ ”
NBC producer goes for gold with viral videos By David Bauder
The Associated Press
STAMFORD, Conn. — At 3:30 a.m. on the day before the Olympics started, Brian Gilmore was glancing at the giant television screen that dominates a workroom at NBC Sports Group’s headquarters when something caught his eye. A luge competitor from India, Shiva Keshavan, had fallen off his sled during a training run and, somewhat miraculously, had hoisted himself back on while speeding down the course. Gilmore shouted across the room for someone to capture the video and asked colleagues whether they had ever seen anything like it. No one had. Gilmore posted the video on NBC’s Olympics website and within a few days, more than 1.5 million people watched it. Gilmore, a senior director at NBC Sports, is assigned to create viral videos for the Olympics. His job is to find moments — wacky, heartbreaking or heartwarming — to break out and post in the hope of generating the most online traffic possible. “Our job is to find things that can resonate,” said Gilmore, who works with some four dozen people responsible for monitoring streams of every competition in Sochi
and breaking out clips for highlight packages. Each person sits behind multiple computer screens. Clocks on either side of a 159-inch TV screen on the wall tell the time in Sochi and Stamford. Somewhat improbably, Keshavan’s clip was the NBC Olympics site’s most popular clip for several days until Olga Graf blew by him. The Russian speedskater was captured by cameras after a race zipping down her Lycra uniform front to cool off, only to quickly zip it back up when she realized she had nothing on underneath. The clip was G-rated but still, more than 2.5 million people had to see for themselves. Other popular clips include an interview with tearful American skier Hannah Kearney, overcome at the realization her career was ending with a bronze instead of gold medal; skier Todd Lodwick “photo-bombing” NBC’s Randy Moss as Moss reported on him; luger Kate Hansen psyching herself up for competition with a dance routine; and a cross-country skier who pressed on despite a broken ski. The Russian police choir’s rendition of “Get Lucky” before the opening ceremony earned 1.6 million clicks. Gilmore’s job requires a different mindset than television producers; the “Get Lucky” performance didn’t make it on NBC televi-
sion until it became a sensation online. It’s harder to describe a moment than it is to recognize one. “You know it when you see it,” he said. “You’re looking for emotion. You’re looking for things you’ve never seen before.” Crashes, wipeouts, spills — whatever you call them — are popular. But you have to be careful. “You don’t like to celebrate injury,” Gilmore said. A key for Gilmore is being surrounded by an experienced team, with as many people as possible who have worked the Olympics before and understand the pace. The clips become viral strictly within NBC’s universe. The company keeps them for NBC’s own websites and doesn’t spread them around the Web. Success in highlighting a video that many people want to see means success financially. NBC is seeking as much traffic for its digital platform as possible, and each time these videos are opened, an advertisement plays. Clips deemed good enough are given front-page attention on the NBC Olympics websites. “Not everything can make the primetime show, but we can put what we want up there,” he said.
I love Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films, but even the biggest Tolkien geek has to admit that The Return of the King drags at the end. It’s nice to say farewell to all the dwarves and elves and hobbits we’ve come to know and love, but — heck, just wake me when it’s over. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII (Square Enix, for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, $59.99) is like the last 20 minutes of The Return of the King stretched over a 50-hour-plus video game. So you get tearful goodbyes from Snow, Fang, Vanille and the rest of the gang you met back at the beginning of this trilogy, 2009’s Final Fantasy XIII — even though you probably already forgot about them long ago. You don’t need to have played the earlier XIII chapters to understand Lightning Returns. (Indeed, I defy anyone to make sense of the train wreck of timetravel paradoxes in 2012’s Final Fantasy XIII-2.) Here’s the essence: The heroine, a warrior named Lightning, has been reincarnated with godlike powers. The world is going to end in 13 days, and her task is to save as many souls as possible. So, every morning Lightning departs the celestial plane and enters the more Earthly realm of Nova Chrysalis. Each neighborhood is packed with pilgrims preparing for the Rapture. Some may ask you to kill a few monsters; others may present more complicated tasks, like nursing a chocobo (the giant chicken who’s sort of the mascot of Final Fantasy) back to health. The clock is always ticking, and you can’t solve everyone’s dilemmas, although which missions are more important becomes quickly apparent. I found the artificial time constraint frustrating; Lightning Returns feints toward the open-world adventure of, say, Skyrim, then punishes you if you spend too much time exploring. Battles have evolved into more fast-paced affairs. You can dress Lightning in three outfits — one heavily armored, one built for physical attacks and one built for magic. During a fight, you can switch outfits on the fly, and you’ll need to because enemies constantly change their attacks. It’s essentially like switching among three different characters, and it’s a challenging and ultimately rewarding system that makes almost every battle feel fresh. Like any Final Fantasy game, Lightning Returns kicks around some weighty ideas about fate, duty, redemption and salvation. And it offers a few nice, personal moments among Lightning and her former comrades. But as delivered over three games and 150plus hours, the story told by the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy is bloated, incoherent and ultimately silly. It aims for “wow” and settles for “huh?” Two stars out of four. uuu
Bravely Default (Nintendo, for the 3DS, $39.99) has Final Fantasy in its DNA — Square Enix published it in Japan — and fans of the older Final Fantasy epics will adore it. You are a boy named Tiz, and your hometown has been destroyed by an earthquake. Of course, supernatural forces are at work, and you must join forces with three more plucky youngsters to save your world from oblivion. Combat is what role-playing aficionados call “turnbased.” This where players select their four characters’ actions from a menu and watch them play out. The gimmick here is that any character can “default,” assuming a defensive stance and storing up energy. On the next turn, you can select “brave” to unleash that pent-up energy, making your attacks doubly effective. The brave/default strategy becomes more important in end-of-dungeon boss battles, when one wrong choice can get your entire party killed. And be warned: At its initial setting, this is one tough game. Don’t feel guilty about fiddling with the menus and dialing down the difficulty. The story drags at times and doesn’t hold many surprises, but Bravely Default does offer plenty of flexibility in building your characters as they rampage across the wilderness. It’s a beautifully executed homage to the Japanese RPGs many of us grew up on, and could even inspire younger gamers to hunt down some of those old-school gems. Three stars out of four.

New research shows connecting terms and meanings could fight ‘word gap’
TAlking Tips u The sooner you start talking with babies, the better. u The high-pitched, singsong tone that many people take with babies does get their attention, but don’t dumb it down.
By Lauran Neergaard

WASHINGTON — The sooner you start explaining the world to your baby, the better. That doesn’t mean flash cards for tots, or merely pointing out objects: “Here’s an orange. That’s a bowl.” New research shows that both how much and how well parents talk with babies and toddlers help to tune the youngsters’ brains in ways that build crucial language and vocabulary skills — a key to fighting the infamous “word gap” that puts poor children at a disadvantage at an even younger age than once thought. The idea is to connect words and meaning, so the brain becomes primed to learn through context: “Let’s put the orange in this bowl with the banana and the apple and the grapes.” “You’re building intelligence through language,” is how Stanford University psychology professor Anne Fernald explains it. “It’s making nets of meaning that then will help the child learn new words.” And forget dumbed-down baby talk: Longer, more complex sentences are better. “The advice I give mothers is to have conversations with your babies,” said Erika Hoff, a psychology professor at Florida Atlantic University. “Children can hear lots of talk that goes over their head in terms of the meaning, and they still benefit from it.” The research, presented Thursday and Friday at a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, comes

amid a growing push for universal preschool to help disadvantaged youngsters catch up. But it also begs the question of whether children from lowincome, less educated families need earlier intervention, such as preschool that starts at age 3 instead of 4, or higher quality day care or even some sort of “Let’s talk” campaign aimed at new parents to stress talking, singing and reading with tots even before they can respond. That can be difficult for parents working multiple jobs, or who may not read well or who simply don’t know why it’s important. Scientists have long known that before they start kindergarten, children from middle-class or affluent families have heard millions more words than youngsters from low-income families, leaving the poorer children with smaller vocabularies and less ready to succeed academically. Fernald said by some measures, 5-year-olds from low-income families can lag two years behind their peers in

tests of language development, an achievement gap that’s difficult to overcome. Brain scans support the link, said Dr. Kimberly Noble of Columbia University Medical Center. Early experiences shape the connections that children’s brains form, and kids from higher socioeconomic backgrounds devote more “neural real estate” to brain regions involved in language development, she found. How early does the word gap appear? Around age 18 months, Stanford’s Fernald discovered when she compared how children mentally process the language they hear. Lower-income kids in her study achieved at age 2 the level of proficiency that more affluent kids had reached six months earlier. To understand why language processing is so important, consider this sentence: “The kitty’s on the bench.” If the youngster knows the word “kitty,” and his brain recognizes it quickly enough, then he can figure out what “bench”

means by the context. But if he’s slow to recognize “kitty,” then “bench” flies by before he has a chance to learn it. Next, Fernald tucked recorders into T-shirts of low-income toddlers in Spanish-speaking households to determine what they heard all day — and found remarkable differences in what’s called child-directed speech. That’s when children are spoken to directly, in contrast to television or conversations they overhear. One child heard more than 12,000 words of child-directed speech in a day, while another heard a mere 670 words, she found. The youngsters who received more child-directed speech processed language more efficiently and learned words more quickly, she reported. But it’s not just quantity of speech that matters — it’s quality, Hoff cautioned. She studied bilingual families and found that whatever the language, children fare better when they learn it from a native speaker.

DAYTON, Ohio — Communicating with your kids is all about talking in a way that they will listen, but also listening in a way that they will talk. Listening isn’t easy, as many parents ignore the Law of Moderation, either talking too much or not saying enough in response to their kids’ comments. If you say nothing, youngsters don’t know if you really understood them. If you respond too aggressively, kids feel like you may be dismissing their concerns. Here are the five keys to effective listening. u Give your full attention. Conversations with kids often seem to happen at inconvenient times, such as when you just get home from work or are busy doing something else. Postpone what you are doing and listen to your child. u Ask lots of questions. Many youngsters aren’t sophisticated in clearly articulating their thoughts and feelings. Their words may be imprecise or extreme. Instead of getting upset, ask open-ended questions such as “Can you tell me more about that?” or “What happened then?” u Summarize the main idea. Talk less so you can listen more. However, after your child has spoken for a few minutes, try to summarize the main idea of what you think you heard. “So you believe you’ve proven you’re responsible enough to drive because your grades are excellent’’ may be a good summary of a teen’s argument for getting a learner’s permit. u Summarize the main feeling. Sometimes kids just want your warm presence and acceptance, not a solution to their situation. In these types of conversations, young people are more interested in your understanding of how they feel, not what they think. You need to listen really carefully to the undertones and emotions of the conversation. Try to say back the main feeling (not idea) of what they are experiencing. “So you really want to get your learner’s permit, but you seem anxious about getting into an accident.” Don’t offer false reassurances to your child. Such comments may have the unintended consequence of actually dismissing your child’s feelings. u End the conversation. Don’t rush to a solution or feel as if it is your responsibility to solve your child’s problems. Sometimes that best way to end a conversation is simply to thank your teen for bringing up some issue and give it more time for consideration.

Funeral services and memorials WILLIAM ZECKENDORF JR. 1929-2014 William Zeckendorf Jr., one of the nation’s foremost real estate developers in the 1970s and 80s, died February 12 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He was 84. Invariably self-effacing, Zeckendorf insisted that his buildings merited the attention, not himself. Nevertheless, he was the motivating force and key player behind a broad range of outstanding real estate projects, primarily in New York City. Among his most recognizable and celebrated are Worldwide Plaza, Zeckendorf Towers (named for his father), the Four Seasons Hotel, and the Ronald Reagan Office Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C. Other projects include the renovation and sale of five major New York hotels, among them the Delmonico and the Mayfair, and the construction of luxury high-rises such as The Park Belvedere, Central Park Place, The Belaire, and The Vanderbilt, which, along with the Columbia and others, brought the city more than 4,000 new condominiums and rental apartments. Working on a smaller scale better suited to the Southwest, Zeckendorf also developed noteworthy projects for Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he later settled. Like his great-grandfather and namesake, who immigrated to Santa Fe from Germany in the 1860s to do business here, Zeckendorf was an impressive, revitalizing force. Bill Zeckendorf was born to the trade. Early on his father, William "Big Bill" Zeckendorf Sr., was the real estate industry’s shining star, with skill, vision, and daring raising the firm of Webb & Knapp to unparalleled heights. Zeckendorf Jr., a graduate of the Lawrenceville School in Princeton, New Jersey, studied at the University of Arizona and served with commendation in the U.S Army in Korea before joining his father’s firm full time in 1950. At Webb & Knapp he was well schooled in the planning, financing, and development of large-scale properties, proving himself as canny, creative, and tenacious at brokering deals as his father. Beginning in the mid-60s, the company underwent two restructurings—first as General Property Corporation, then as Zeckendorf Company—becoming New York City’s most active developers of luxury hotels, upscale condominium apartments, office towers, and mixed-use projects, in the process redefining the city’s face and skyline. Bill Zeckendorf Jr. was also president of the Federal Triangle Corporation, the firm responsible for developing the Ronald Reagan Office Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C., the largest federal building to rise in the capital since the Pentagon. At the height of the Zeckendorf Company’s expansion in the 1980s, Zeckendorf was joined by his two sons—William Lie and Arthur—from his first marriage to Guri Lie, daughter of Trygve Lie, the UN’s first Secretary-General. During the next decade, the company’s portfolio was the 12th largest in the country. At the same time, Zeckendorf was busy with an entirely different portfolio, concentrated on Santa Fe and its surrounding hills. In conjunction with his second wife, Nancy—a former prima ballerina with the Metropolitan Opera Ballet and an ardent supporter of the arts—Zeckendorf became a significant presence in the area. He developed the Eldorado Hotel, the award-winning Los Miradores condominium complex, the prestigious community of Sierra del Norte, and one of his most gratifying projects, the Lensic Performing Arts Center, transforming a quaint 1930s movie house into the cultural axis of Northern New Mexico. While in New York, Zeckendorf was a trustee of Long Island University and served as its board chairman for 10 years. As his focus turned increasingly toward Santa Fe, he joined the boards of the Christus St. Vincent Hospital, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, the College of Santa Fe, and the Lensic Performing Arts Center. From the outset, he was an energizing force behind the Lensic and the preeminent guide to closing the deal on the property and getting the project off the ground. Zeckendorf’s passion throughout his adult life was fine wines, with an emphasis on the wines of Burgundy. For more than 50 years he was a member of the Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, serving for nine of those years as New York City’s Grand Senechal. During his term as president of the Tastevin Foundation, he created a Laureate Program for American students earning a degree in wine-making from the University of California, Davis, that offered them a semester’s study at French wineries. William Zeckendorf Jr. is survived by his wife, Nancy; his sister, Susan Zeckendorf Nicholson; his son William Lie and daughter-inlaw Laura; his son Arthur; and his two grandchildren, Arthur III and Jennifer Zeckendorf. The family wishes to express their deepest thanks to those who helped care for Mr. Zeckendorf with such professionalism and unstinting kindness. They are Connie Ross, who has been with the family for 12 years, Sammi Hendrix, Eric Chambers, Robert Cather, Jason Wright, John Santos, and Egis Care and Support; doctors Tom Kravitz, Vivian Lee, Poseidon Varvitsiotis, and Michael Palestine; hospital nurse Tony Engelman; and the staff of Christus St. Vincent. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Lensic Performing Arts Center, 211 West San Francisco Street, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87501.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Drug war needs new approach O ur approach to our drug problems has been the drug war, consuming more than a trillion dollars over the last 40 years. And what do we have to show for it? The drug scene is at least as bad as ever. The cost of interdiction and incarceration is phenomenal, and the cost in ruined lives even worse. Where is the logic in continuing to do more of the same? There must be a better way, but we won’t know if we don’t try. Drugs are terribly bad, but if we either decriminalize or legalize them, we could use the funds saved for education and rehabilitation, making a much more significant improvement in the drug scene. Serious studies have shown this to be the case. Albert Einstein said, “Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” We need to get smarter.
That old coat How many of us have thrown away an old coat or have left it hanging in the closet because the zipper stopped working? I had two favorite coats that had been hanging unused in my closet for a long time. I looked at the zippers to see if there was any way I could get the zippers on the coats to work again. My first try failed, but one morning after a good night’s sleep, I decided to look at the zippers again. I noticed that the long parts of the zippers that fasten together to hold the coats closed looked in good shape and showed signs of little wear. Then I looked at the parts of the zippers that compress the two sides of the zippers together. It appeared they were not compressing the sides together enough to make them fasten. So I got out a pair of pliers and compressed the sides of the lever that zips up the zipper. It worked. Now my two favorite coats have been saved. James Keele
Early education I am voting for Javier Gonzales for mayor. I have young children, and Gonzales’ stand on education is exciting and well thought through. He wants to extend the city’s partnership with the schools by adding more educational content to after-school and summer programs. He wants to start a Youth Service Corps to inspire leadership. He wants to work with United Way, other nonprofits, the business community and the schools to have true preschool education for children from birth to to age 6. That is something that is crucial for success in school. Javier knows a lot about education from being chairman of the Board of Regents at New Mexico Highlands University and serving as a current regent for New Mexico State University, which has some particularly impressive programs for at-risk children. I am also impressed by the fact that he was endorsed by both teachers’ unions — NEA and AFT, three current school

I read The New Mexican’s editorial about cultural diversity and emphasizing our Native people’s talents, whether we are on stage or not, to represent the United States (“Our View: Cultural diversity strengthens U.S.,” Feb. 5). I’m very proud of Christy Bird being a part of the 2014 Super Bowl advertisement singing “America the Beautiful.” Also, your editorial page deserves a big “thank you” for supporting Christy. She should not stop her involvement, and she should continue her language and inspire other Natives to stay composed, no matter how others think. The newspaper also wrote a very beautiful editorial for my daughter, Patricia Michaels’, Project Runway experience and gave her a lot of strong community feeling from everybody. Go Christy!

John Sarbanes introduced the Government by the People Act — a new campaign finance reform bill to help reverse the impact of Citizens United. The Government by the People Act matches small-dollar donations under $150 with public funds 6-to-1, so that a $25 contribution turns into $175 — or $100 into $700 — amplifying the voice of everyday people. This could save taxpayers hundreds of billions in corporate welfare that results from politicians sucking up to big-money donors. I’m very proud of my representative, Ben Ray Luján, for co-sponsoring the Government by the People Act and for taking a stand against big-money interests in favor of the people. We need more actions like this in order to restore our democracy and break the corrosive influence of big money. David King
Taking care of business While the city invites the country nationwide to visit, they have neglected to provide them a basic necessity while they are here — public restrooms near the Plaza! As a Bienvenidos volunteer, I know for a fact that is the single most request for help. It is not fair to expect the local businesses or museums to provide this service. Nor is it reasonable to expect visitors to stay longer and patronize areas where there are no facilities for such basic needs. With the many empty stores available, there should be one that could be retrofitted to accommodate a dozen or so clean toilets — free or otherwise. Or maybe a trailer-size port-a-john could be rented placed in one of the open parking lots. With all the time spent by council members on the question of plastic bags and pooper scoopers for dogs, one would hope human needs would get the same time, consideration and support. The new mayor should put this at the top of his or her priority “to do” list. Kathie Enz

Pipeline needed A recent letter stated that the Keystone pipeline would be a “disaster waiting to happen.” This is a hyperbole. Canadian crude oil is going to come into the United States one way or another, if not by pipeline then by train. The U.S. State Department’s report clearly demonstrates that shipping oil by rail is far riskier than doing so by pipeline, in which case there is minimal risk. Opinion polls have determined that an overwhelming majority of Americans are in favor of building the pipeline. The Keystone pipeline is a nobrainer. George Lukac
Yes, DWIs matter This is in response to your recent article about City Council District 1 candidate Michael Segura and a letter that appeared in the Jan. 31 edition taking issue with your coverage of his three DWI convictions and past financial issues. This writer suggests that his DWIs should not matter. Seriously? With our tragic history of multiple DWI offenders killing innocents while driving drunk, voting for someone with his record to serve on our City Council would certainly send the wrong message. And as far as his “real-world business and financial experience,” it led to his personal bankruptcy and a $1.3 million tax lien from the IRS. Is this the kind of business experience we want helping to direct our city’s affairs? I do not know either candidate, but it is clear who we do not need on our City Council. Larry Davis
Patti for mayor I’m for Patti Bushee for mayor. We’re lucky to have a candidate for mayor who knows the city and the city staff from 20 years of experience on the City Council. She’s smart, she’s quick and she genuinely cares about Santa Fe and its people. Some candidates accept financial support from groups that come around later to collect on the obligation. The citizens of Santa Fe approved public financing of political campaigns to prevent this sort of thing. It’s to her credit that Patti is running her campaign the way we citizens want it run — based strictly on public financing. Patti is experienced and honest, and that’s what we need in a mayor.

s snow blankets the East Coast, it’s easy to forget the weather that’s just around the corner. Get ready for the heat waves of sizzling summers. Because as sure as the snow will melt and spring will vanish quickly, summer will return with elevated temperatures, including the distress caused to human beings when air conditioning fails or isn’t available at all. Researchers from Princeton and Columbia universities are finding out that tweaks to buildings and the urban environment can cool even New York City on summer’s hottest days. The benefits to a cooler city are real. By reducing the need for air conditioning, it is less likely for the electric grid to give out — and even more importantly, human beings vulnerable to high temperatures will be protected. Although many don’t think of heat waves on par with hurricanes or snowstorms, researcher Elie Bou-Zeid of Princeton says they are among the deadliest of natural disasters. The goal of the research team is to find ways to cool the concrete jungle, decreasing the hottest temperatures in New York City by 1 degree. Why? Evidently, even a slight decrease in temperature can make a difference between life and death. In fact, for every degree of increased temperature during a heat wave, the risk of death increases by 4.5 percent. Cooling cities — with an overabundance of concrete and less vegetation — can be complicated. Without vegetation, the heat waves don’t cool; that’s why such areas as Central Park in New York City can be so important to the climate of a city. To reduce the effects of city building materials — brick, concrete and asphalt, all of which trap heat — New York City has launched its Cool Roofs program. In its fourth year, the city attempts to coat 1 million square feet of roof space with white reflective paint. Inside buildings during the summer, the temperature should be cooler. That’s the goal, anyway, and Bou-Zeid’s research team found that the white coatings are working. As a measure to reduce the energy consumption for cooling, this is a fairly easy measure. Roof coatings can be used not just in New York City or other urban centers, but in the Southwest or along the West Coast city corridors, especially as climate change increases summertime temperatures. Santa Fe old-timers remember seldom needing air conditioning as children; today, it seems a necessity. More white roofs, where the sun is reflected away, could help homes in Santa Fe stay cooler and rely less on air conditioning. Importantly, according to the Department of Energy, a cool roof only slightly increases the need for heating energy in the winter — that’s important in a place like Santa Fe, where seasonal temperature extremes are common. However, as with every action, there comes a reaction. A study by Arizona State University and the Environmental Protection Agency released recently in an issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Science found that creating too many cool roofs in urban areas (or green roofs from covering roofs with plants) has unintended consequences. Those include decreasing rainfall (a disaster in the Southwest) and increasing winter heating costs. What is clear is that humans can’t yet fathom the unintended consequences of trying to abate the harm of urban sprawl. It’s obvious, though, that too much concrete covering once-natural lands is affecting our climate, both locally and globally. Stopping sprawl, avoiding asphalt and concrete and, yes, coating at least some roofs to reflect sunlight all make sense — both for dealing with climate change and saving lives when temperatures grow intense. Climate change models show that without adapting urban design, temperatures will rise 1 to 2 degrees, not just in urban areas, but across regional swaths of the United States. The key, then, is finding the right adaptions.
The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Feb: 17, 1964: Los Alamos — A Los Alamos teenager was treated for knife injuries and a Santa Fean was charged with disorderly conduct following a knifing fracas involving four Los Alamos and two Santa Fe youths. The Los Alamos victim was treated for hand cuts at the Recreation Hall. The incident occurred during a teenage dance following the basketball game.

Newsmakers MIDDLESBORO, Ky. — Jamie Coots, a snake-handling Kentucky pastor who appeared on the National Geographic television reality show Snake Salvation, died Saturday after being bitten by a snake. Coots was handling a rattlesnake during a Saturday night service at his Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name Church in Middlesboro when he was bit, another preacher, Cody Winn, told WBIR-TV. “Jamie went across the floor. He had one of the rattlers in his hand, he came over and he was standing beside me. It was plain view, it just turned its head and bit him in the back of the hand … within a second,” Winn said.

LONDON — The force of Gravity was strong at the British Academy Film Awards on Sunday — but it was unflinching drama 12 Years a Slave that took the top prize. Steve McQueen’s visceral, violent story of a free black man kidnapped into servitude in the 19th-century U.S. South was named best picture. Its star, Chiwetel Ejiofor, took the male acting trophy. Ejiofor thanked McQueen, a visual artist who turned to filmmaking with Hunger and Shame, for bringing the story to the screen. Holding the trophy, the British actor told McQueen: “This is yours. I’m going to keep it — that’s the kind of guy I am — but it’s yours.” McQueen reminded the ceremony’s black-tie audience that, in some parts of the world, slavery is not a thing of the past. “There are 21 million people in slavery as we sit here,” he said. “I just hope 150 years from now our ambivalence will not allow another filmmaker to make this film.” The prizes, coming two weeks before Hollywood’s Academy Awards, are watched as an indicator of likely Oscars success. It was a good night for lost-in-space thriller Gravity, which won six prizes, including best director for Alfonso Cuarón. The 3-D special effects extravaganza also took the awards for sound, music, cinematography and visual effects. And despite its mixed parentage — made in Britain by a Mexican director and starring American actors — it was named best British film. Cuarón paid tribute to star Sandra Bullock, who is alone onscreen for much of the film. “Without her performance, everything would have been nonsense,” he said. Con-artist caper American Hustle charmed its way to three prizes, including original screenplay and supporting actress for Jennifer Lawrence. Its spectacular 70s stylings took the hair and makeup award. The best-actress prize went to Cate Blanchett for her turn as a socialite on the slide in Blue Jasmine. She dedicated the award to her friend and fellow actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who died this month, calling him “a monumental presence who is now sadly an absence.” “Phil, buddy, this is for you, you bastard. I hope you’re proud,” Blanchett said. The supporting actor prize went to Barkhad Abdi, who made an explosive screen debut as a Somali pirate in Captain Phillips. The 28-year-old called his experience of going from obscurity in Minnesota to stardom — complete with an Oscar nomination — “surreal.” In the past few years, the British prizes, known as BAFTAs, have helped underdog films, including Slumdog Millionaire, The King’s Speech and The Artist, gain Oscars momentum. The prize for adapted screenplay went to Philomena, based on the true story of an Irish woman’s decades-long search for the son she was forced to give up for adoption. The awards have become an essential stop for many Hollywood stars before the Academy Awards, held this year on March 2. The temperature in London was hardly Hollywood, but Britain’s fickle weather relented ahead of Sunday’s ceremony. The sun shone as nominees including Wolf of Wall Street star Leonardo DiCaprio and 12 Years a Slave performer Lupita Nyong’o — striking in a green Dior gown — walked the red carpet outside London’s Royal Opera House. Best-actress nominee Amy Adams wore a black dress by Victoria Beckham and revealed the inspirations for her American Hustle character’s faux-British accent: “Marianne Faithfull and Julie Christie.”

The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — Johnny Manziel and Michael Sam will be the headliners at the NFL’s scouting combine. Workouts for the league’s pre-draft event begin Saturday. The most important aspects of the combine are often the ones that get the least publicity — Johnny players measuring Manziel in, going through the medical checks and the team interviews that could put many questions to rest or raise an entirely new set of concerns. So with more than 300 NFL draft hopeMichael fuls attending the Sam second biggest offseason event on the NFL calendar — and the only that draws team owners, team executives, league officials, coaches, agents and potential future stars to the same venue— this week

Teixeira: ‘We’re back to being the Yankees’ By Ronald Blum
The Associated Press
TAMPA, Fla. — Mark Teixeira took swings from the right side of the plate and then the left, his first time batting outdoors since a wrist injury ended his 2013 season almost before it began. He pronounced himself ready to return and gave what seemed like a warning to the rest of Major League Baseball. Last year was an aberration, when the New York Yankees missed the playoffs for only the second time in 19 years. In his mind, an offseason spending spree transformed Murmurers’ Row back into Murderers’ Row. “You look at our lineup, we’re back to being the Yankees again,” he said Sunday. “Last year, we weren’t the Yankees.” Brian McCann, Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran were signed to fortify a batting order that dropped from a team-record 245 homers in 2012 to an un-Bronx Bomber-like 144 last year, the largest falloff in baseball history for a nonstrike season.

Phil Kessel scores three to help U.S. rout Slovenia 5-1 By Larry Lage
The Associated Press
OCHI, Russia — Phil Kessel is the first American in more than a decade to score a hat trick in an Olympic hockey tournament. He’s more interested in something no American has accomplished on Olympic ice since 1980 — winning a gold medal. Kessel scored two of his three goals within the opening five minutes to lead the U.S. to a 5-1 win against Slovenia on Sunday. The U.S. is undefeated through three games, and if it can win three more, the nation will celebrate its first Olympic championship in hockey since the “Miracle on Ice” at the Lake Placid Games. “It’s about the wins, right?” Kessel asked, rhetorically. “We just want to win games.” No members of Team USA were alive when the U.S. beat the Soviet Union in 1980 in one of the biggest upsets in sports history. But if they end up with gold around their neck on Sunday, this title won’t be regarded as a miracle. Kessel and his teammates earned an automatic spot in the quarterfinals of the 12-team tournament by routing Slovenia and Slovakia, and outlasting Russia in a shootout, to finish atop their group. They’ve scored 15 and allowed only four goals so far.

SOCHI HIGHLIGHTS For the Dutch, the sweep 16: The Dutch got their third sweep in speedskating — albeit a gold by Jorien ter Mors over favorite Ireen Wust in the women’s 1,500. Lottevan Beek got the bronze. The Dutch have now won 16 speedskating medals in Sochi. Shootout at the Bolshoy Corral: A day after a tough shootout loss to the United States, Russia bounced back against Slovakia, thanks to Alexander Radulov and Ilya Kovalchuk, who delivered in the shootout.
The U.S. won’t play again until Wednesday, when they’ll face the winner of the Czech Republic’s qualification-round game against Slovakia for a spot in the semifinals and the chance to play for medals. Kessel scored 1:04 after the puck dropped, removing any thought the Americans would have a hangover after their much hyped victory against the host Russians on Saturday. “I was certainly concerned after the emotional game,” said coach Dan Bylsma. “We were fortunate that we got right out of the gate with a couple great plays.” Kessel’s third goal midway through the second period made him the first U.S. player to score a hat trick at the Olympics since John LeClair did it on Feb. 15, 2002, against Finland. “I was saying right before the game, I hope somebody does something pretty cool, so that some of the focus gets off of me and onto someone else,” said T.J. Oshie, who scored on four of six attempts in an eightround shootout against Russia. “He didn’t need six shots in the shootout to do it. He did it in regular time.” Slovenia’s Marcel Rodman scored with 17.6 seconds left in the game, denying U.S. goalie Ryan Miller a

NEW ORLEANS — From the first play to the final minute, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving made it clear how the East felt about this All-Star game. “We took this East 163 one personal a West 155 bit,” Irving said. Irving had 31 points and 14 assists and was voted the MVP, Carmelo Anthony made a record eight 3-pointers and scored 30 points, and the East stopped a three-game losing streak with a 163155 victory over the West on Sunday night in the highest-scoring All-Star game ever. Fed up with losing the midseason game and tired of the East being picked on for its mediocrity this season, James had a steal and dunk on the first possession, long before defense usually shows up in the AllStar game. “We wanted this win,” James said. “They beat us the last three years and they had a lot of bragging rights, so to be able to come through being down 18 was huge.” Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin each finished with 38 points, four shy of Wilt Chamberlain’s All-Star game record, for the West. But the East scored the final 10 points to pull out a game it trailed by 18. “They started making shots, and we didn’t get stops and we went a little bit cold,” said Griffin, who shot 19 of 23, setting a record for field goals made. Irving scored 15 points in the fourth quarter. James had 22 points, seven rebounds and seven assists. The 318 points broke the record of 303 set in 1987. Durant finished with 10 rebounds and six assists, but the West was shut out after his 3-pointer gave it a 155153 lead with 1:59 left. Indiana’s Paul

Now that the NFL knows the scope of the racially charged Miami Dolphins bullying scandal, the league has been left to grapple with what its next steps should be. A report released Friday on the Miami case concluded with a one-paragraph call to action: “As all must surely recognize, the NFL is not an ordinary workplace. Professional football is a rough, contact sport played by men of exceptional size, speed, strength and athleticism. But even the largest, strongest and fleetest person may be driven to despair by bullying, taunting and constant insults. We encourage the creation of new workplace conduct rules and guidelines that will help ensure that players respect each other as professionals and people.” League executives agree steps need to be taken, and they have vowed to take action. But it may be difficult to regulate locker room behavior by determining when something a player considers to be harmless locker room nonsense crosses the line. Players are part of a team, but they also are individuals with different levels of sensitivity. And as the report’s call to action points out, the NFL is not an ordinary workplace — and locker rooms are sanctuaries within those workplaces, where even without the kinds of vicious taunts and racist insults cited in the report, behavior that would not be accepted in society is tolerated, and even condoned or encouraged. Still, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross wants his organization to lead the way to change the culture. “I have made it clear to everyone within our organization that this situation must never happen again,” Ross said in a statement released through the team after the report was released. “We are committed to address this issue forcefully and to take a leadership role in establishing a standard that will be a benchmark in all of sports.” Before the Super Bowl, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had said he’d be out in front on the issue of hazing. “Our No. 1 priority has to make sure that we have a workplace environment that’s professional, recognizing that we have some unique circumstances. But we have to make sure that our players, [and] other employees, have that kind of professional workplace environment,” Goodell said then. After the report was released, the NFL did not mention any possible punishment stemming from the case in a statement emailed by a league spokesman. The NFL Players Association said it will review the findings closely, confer with

After two sensational years at Texas A&M, he’s trying to position himself to be considered the first overall pick by the Houston Texans. While the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner has said he will not work out next weekend, scouts will be looking at Manziel’s height and weight to determine if he can hold up against the NFL’s bigger, faster, stronger defenders. Coaches and team executives also will be eager to see how he handles the private interviews — the one part of the combine outsiders never see — to determine whether he’s the guy they

players and all relevant parties involved. The report by lawyer Ted Wells said “the behavior that occurred here was harmful to the players, the team and the league,” but he noted the investigators weren’t asked to recommend discipline or determine legal liability for the bullying. Wells concluded that offensive linemen John Jerry and Mike Pouncey joined Richie Incognito in harassing Jonathan Martin, who left the team in October, and position coach Jim Turner participated in the taunting of a second player. That player is Andrew McDonald, now with the Carolina Panthers. The report found no evidence that the Dolphins front office or head coach Joe Philbin were aware of the conduct Martin found abusive. “There are lines — even in a football locker room — that should not be crossed, as they were here,” the report said. “We leave the determination of precisely where to draw those lines to those who spend their lives playing, coaching and managing the game of professional football.” Players would like to police themselves. It is, after all, their locker room. Teams want a big say in setting those parameters. Like any other employer, they are responsible for maintaining a safe and respectful work environment that adheres to both the league’s policies and federal law. The league is taking a hard look at the report, which details homophobic invec-
tive directed at McDonald. That element in particular is a hot button issue in light of SEC co-defensive player of the year Michael Sam’s recent revelation that he’s gay, putting him in line to become the league’s first openly gay player. Being at the center of this scandal puts the Dolphins at the forefront of any bolstering of policies protecting players from bullying. The report said that in 2013, Dolphins players acknowledged receiving and understanding the personal conduct code and the workplace harassment and discrimination policies, both taken from the NFL handbook. The latter policy states that “harassment can include, but is not limited to: unwelcome contact; jokes, comments and antics; generalizations and put-downs; pornographic or suggestive literature and language. In addition, harassment and discrimination are not limited to the workplace: they example [sic], through calls, texts or emails, on a plane or team bus; at a team event; or at the team hotel.” The policy encourages reporting discrimination or harassment to the players’ union, a coach, human resources or NFL security. The report touches on a code against snitching that exists in NFL locker rooms, however, and Martin never did report the abuse before walking away from the team when he’d had enough.
equation at the top of the draft. And if Manziel doesn’t go No. 1, who will? That answer probably won’t be settled after this weekend, though most analysts believe a quarterback will once again be taken with the first pick. If the choice is not Manziel, it could be Blake Bortles or Teddy Bridgewater. The Texans recently hired Central Florida’s former college quarterback coach, and Bridgewater was considered the frontrunner to be No. 1 throughout most of the college season. A year ago, at this point the oddson favorite to go No. 1 was Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei. So a lot can change between now and May’s draft, and don’t rule out a possible resurgence by South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. Junior jam: A record number of college players (102) have given up their remaining college eligibility to jump into
this year’s NFL draft. While the first-round is sure to include plenty of underclassmen draftees, led by the likes of Manziel and Clowney, dozens of other early-entry draft hopefuls must show they’re worthy of being drafted. If the underclassmen do well and go high, the trend of seeing more and more underclassmen enter the draft could continue in future years. Character counts: The toughest job this week goes to any of the players having to answer questions about their character. The list of indiscretions includes everything from arrests to drug-related suspensions to the use, or misuse, of Twitter. What scouts and team execs will try to do is sort fact from fiction as they attempt to figure out whether these were simple youthful missteps or a pattern of behavior that could continue to cause problems in the future.
All-Star: East finishes with 60% shooting George made three free throws, Anthony nailed his final 3-pointer, and James scored to make it 161-155. George closed it out with two more free throws and finished with 18 points. “Both teams played extremely well, we just lost,” Durant said. The game that usually doesn’t get tight until the final minutes was close throughout the fourth quarter, neither team leading by more than four until the final minute. Chris Paul had 11 points and 13 assists, and first-time All-Star Stephen Curry had 12 points and 11 assists for the West. But the best point guard on the floor was Irving, who shot 14 of 17 and helped the East ring up 87 points in the second half after it surrendered a record 89 in the first. In a colorful tribute to New Orleans, players wore sneakers and socks that ranged from green and blue to orange and purple, making the game look like a Mardi Gras parade. The parade was one of layups and dunks for the West, which scored 44 points in the first quarter and 45 in the second. Griffin had 18 points in the first quarter and Durant had 22 at halftime, both two shy of

want as the face of their franchise for the next decade. Michael Sam: Last week, Sam became the first NFL draft prospect to acknowledge he is gay. This week, he’ll face a media circus in Indy. He also has some questions about his physical ability to answer. The SEC’s defensive player of the year was listed last season at 6-foot-2, 255 pounds, meaning Sam must demonstrate he has the speed and the agility to change directions to make it in the NFL. The heavy shift to 3-4 defenses has put a premium on heavier defensive ends, forcing lighter players to make the move to linebacker. If Sam demonstrates he’s quick enough to be a pass-rushing end in a 4-3 front or athletic enough to move to rush linebacker in a 3-4 front, his draft stock should improve. The No. 1 question: Manziel is only one part of the

records set by Glen Rice in 1997. And there was plenty of music, the rosters and starting lineups introduced around a concert by Pharrell Williams, who was joined by his own All-Stars in Nelly, Busta Rhymes, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Snoop Dogg. Magic Johnson led a band, too, encouraging the All-Stars to join him in singing “Happy Birthday” after the first quarter to Hall of Famer Bill Russell, the NBA’s greatest champion who was celebrating his 80th. The All-Stars played better than they sang. The East finished with 61 percent shooting, needing all sorts of offense after it simply couldn’t defend Durant and Griffin. Durant made six 3-pointers and raised his career scoring average in the All-Star games to a record 30.6 points. Outside of the ugly sleeved jerseys, it was a good look for the NBA’s midseason showcase, bouncing back strongly from an uneven All-Star Saturday night. The new format of the slam dunk contest Saturday wasn’t a hit, but every night is a dunk contest when Griffin is involved. The guy who once jumped over a car to
win a slam dunk contest had eight slams in the first 11 minutes, the backboard often barely done shaking from the last one when he threw down the next. Durant made a 3-pointer with 26 seconds left to make it 89-76 at the break, one point better than he and the West had two years ago in Orlando. He and Griffin each had 30 points by the end of the third quarter, but the East trimmed what was a West 18-point lead to 126-123 after three. James Harden started for the West in place of Kobe Bryant, who was elected by the fans but was knocked out by a broken left knee. Bryant said before the game his recovery is “coming slowly” but hopes to be back in another All-Star game. With Bryant sitting out and longtime regulars Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett not selected, it was a chance for the younger guys to make their mark. The rosters were loaded with players 25 and younger, including first-time starters George, Irving, Stephen Curry and Kevin Love. The All-Star newcomers also included official Violet Palmer, who became the first female to referee a major U.S. sports league’s All-Star game.

24-ton sprinkle of salt saves slopes Organizers avert melting crisis with emergency shipment from Switzerland By Sam Dolnick
The New York Times
RASNAYA POLYANA, Russia — Late last week, a senior adviser to the Sochi Olympics convened an emergency meeting with top winter sports officials at the Park Inn hotel in the Alpine village here. A situation had grown dire. It was not security, attendance or doping that was the problem. It was salt. Four months earlier, Hans Pieren, one of the world’s leading experts on salt and snow, had told Sochi officials that the Alpine skiing events required more than 19 tons of salt, a crucial ingredient for winter sports officials who want to melt soft snow so it can refreeze into a hard surface. But to their great regret, the organizers had not listened. Now, with 10 days of competition remaining, many of the games’ signature events were in jeopardy of being compromised, and perhaps even canceled. Tim Gayda, a Canadian consultant who is a senior adviser to the Sochi organizers, called the meeting Thursday night, according to some people who were there. He told the group that the strongest kind of salt, the large-grain variety, was simply not available in Russia. Gayda asked the group an urgent question: Does anyone know how we can get 25 tons of salt — tonight? From there, a confidential international mission unspooled — a mountaintop “Ocean’s Eleven” — that just may have prevented a major Olympic embarrassment. This Sochi salt accord involved a Swiss salt salesman working late into the night; a rerouted airplane that may or may not have come from Bulgaria; an Olympian turned salt savant; and Russians powerful enough to clear months of customs bureaucracy overnight. It began with Pieren, 52, a ruddy Swiss skier who works as a senior race director for FIS, the international ski federation. He discusses the merits of different salt grains with the precision of a jeweler and often carries plastic sandwich bags with grains of salt — fine, medium and large. (He brought all three to a recent interview.) Last September, Pieren made a final inspection of the Alpine skiing courses and told Sochi organizers that he needed 19 tons of salt for the games — 2 tons of fine-grain salt, 7 tons of medium and,
most important, 10 tons of large-grain Himalaya-style salt. This was the heavyduty salt that sank deep into the snow, lasted longer and would be most effective in warm weather. In emphatic but imperfect English, Pieren placed his order in a Sept. 29 email to Yves Dimier, the head of Alpine sports for Sochi’s organizing committee. “If the conditions are incredible bad or wears than expected, we need maybe more salt and have to get more,” Pieren wrote. Pieren, who competed in Alpine skiing events at the 1988 and 1992 Olympics and now works with international competitions, was used to getting his way on matters of salt. Guided by intuition and experience, he combines different grains to find the right solution for every kind of snow. “When we order something, it is not a wish,” he said. “It is a must.” But Sochi organizers did not listen. After spending more than $50 billion on the games, they did not fill the salt order, which would have cost perhaps a few thousand dollars. Dimier and a spokesman declined to comment on his role in the decision, and the Sochi press office did not directly say why organizers did not heed Pieren’s advice. But they acknowledged the importance of the large-grained salt and its scarcity in Russia. Sochi had hardly any large salt crystals, less than a ton — nowhere near enough to harden expanses of soft snow, according to Pieren. And temperatures on the mountain were rising. Homeowners use salt to melt ice on the sidewalk, but Alpine experts cleverly use it to overcome soft snow conditions when a hard, icy surface is preferable. The salt melts the soft snow, and when the temperature drops — usually overnight — a layer of ice forms. Large-grain salt, about 5 millimeters in size, is best for soft, deep snow, because it drops farther into the snow and lasts for days, not hours. By the time of the emergency meeting, the world was watching Olympic athletes who had spent their lives training for these competitions. But their efforts could all be undone because of 5-millimeter grains of salt, or rather, the lack of them. “They didn’t recognize the importance of the salt,” Pieren said. “They don’t know anything about salt.” It was not just the Alpine skiing races
that were in trouble. Pieren fielded frantic calls from colleagues across the mountain — at cross-country, the halfpipe, Nordic combined. All were worried about the conditions. All were in need of salt. Prominent athletes began to complain about the conditions. The halfpipe is “pretty hard to ride,” said Shaun White, a U.S. snowboarder and one of the games’ biggest stars. “Once everyone gets in there, it just turns to mush.” Sochi officials had to act swiftly. When Gayda asked about arranging an emergency infusion of salt, Pieren knew where to turn. He called Schweizer Rheinsalinen, a 160-year-old company near Basel, Switzerland, that sits on the banks of the river for which it is named. On its website, the company declares salt “a world unto itself.” Pieren reached Marcel Plattner, a sales accountant who works mostly in foodgrade salt. Pieren told him he was in trouble. “Not him personally in trouble, but he told me Sochi didn’t have enough salt,” Plattner said. Pieren was relieved to hear the Swiss company had plenty of big-grain salt in a nearby warehouse; he said Olympic officials would buy 24 tons if it could be shipped immediately. At roughly $150 a ton, the bill would be more than $3,500. Plattner was on a sales call with a supermarket chain when Pieren called. He was thrilled to help — he had been watching the games and was a fan of winter sports, hockey and skiing especially. “I felt bad for the athletes,” he said. “It wasn’t their mistake.” Once Schweizer Rheinsalinen agreed to the sale, the international ski federation helped reroute a plane to Zurich, according to Jenny Wiedeke, a spokeswoman for the organization. The plane would leave Zurich at 11 a.m., with or without the salt. “If you’re too late, the show is gone,” Plattner said. “It was the time which was working against us.” The ski federation and Sochi officials declined to describe how they secured a plane on such short notice. Plattner said he was told it came from Sofia, the Bulgarian capital. Plattner worked until 11 that night to make the arrangements. He said he did not even have time to tell his boss. “It was very exciting,” he said.
KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia — This medal mattered to Bode Miller. Not so much because his bronze in Sunday’s super-G — behind winner Kjetil Jansrud and surprise runner-up Andrew Weibrecht — makes Miller, at age 36, the oldest Alpine medalist in Olympic history. Or even because he now owns six medals in all, the second-highest total for a male ski racer and tied for second among U.S. Winter Olympians in any sport. The guy who for years and years insisted results don’t mean much to him declared he actually did care about this one. The PAST year has been a difficult one for Miller: the death of his younger brother, Chelone, in April 2013; the court fight over custody of his infant son; the work it took to come back from left knee surgery and return to the Alpine apex. “It’s almost therapeutic for me to be in these situations, where I really had to test myself, so I was happy to have it be on the right side of the hundredths,” said Miller, who grew up in New Hampshire and is now based in California. “Some days … medals don’t matter, and today was one of the ones where it does.” He wiped away tears in the finish area after someone mentioned Chelone, a charismatic snowboarder who was 29 and hoping to make the U.S. team in Sochi when he died of what was believed to be a seizure. “Everything felt pretty raw and pretty connected,” Miller said, “so it was a lot for me.” Weibrecht couldn’t help but be moved by his own journey, calling Sunday “probably the most emotional day of ski racing that I’ve ever had.” It also was an important day for the U.S. ski team. The Americans had managed to collect only one of the 15 medals awarded through the first five Alpine events of the Sochi Olympics before Weibrecht and Miller tripled their nation’s total in one fell swoop. Through 28 starters Sunday, Miller and Jan Hudec of Canada were tied for second place, about a half-second slower than Jansrud’s run of 1 minute, 18.14 seconds. But then came the 29th racer, Weibrecht, who had come out
of nowhere to win the super-G bronze behind Miller’s silver at the 2010 Olympics but since then has dealt with injury after injury, including to both shoulders and both ankles. He’s had four operations in the PAST four years, lost funding from the U.S. ski team at one point, and was not a lock to make the Sochi Olympic roster. “I’ve had to evaluate whether this is really what I want to do. Even,” Weibrecht said, then paused before adding, “as recently as yesterday.” He laughed at his own punch line. “All kidding aside,” Weibrecht said later, rubbing his left temple, “it’s been a pretty difficult four years. It’s kind of one of those things that you can only be beat down so many times before you start to really look at what you’re doing. I didn’t know how many more beatdowns I could take.” SNOWBOaRdINg Samkova won the women’s snowboardcross, the first gold of the games for the Czech Republic. Samkova led from start to finish in all three qualifying and elimination races. Lindsey Jacobellis of the U.S. crashed while leading her semifinal, the third straight disappointing Olympic finish for the eight-time X Games winner. CROSS-COuNTRY Sweden’s win in the 4x10-kilometer relay came one day after the Swedish women had won gold in the same race. No country has won both relays since the old Soviet Union did it 42 years ago. Swedish anchor Marcus Hellner skied alone for the entire fourth leg and grabbed a Swedish flag to wave as he entered the stadium. Russia took silver in front of President Vladimir Putin. France finished third. SPEEdSkaTINg Jorien ter Mors earned the gold in the Dutch sweep of the women’s 1,500. Pre-race favorite Ireen Wust settled for silver, with bronze going to Lotte van Beek. If there had been a medal for fourth place, the Dutch would have won that, too, with Marrit Leenstra finishing just after Van Beek. Ter Mors turned in a stunning time of 1 minute, 53.51 seconds, an Olympic record and the second-fastest ever at sea level. CuRLINg Sweden and Canada became the first men’s teams to qualify for the semifinals. Norway, Britain and China are battling for the other two spots. The Swedes and Canadians also advanced to the semifinals in the women’s tournament. China, Britain, Switzerland and Japan still have a chance for the remaining two semifinal spots.

kessel: 1st American to score 4 goals in preliminary round since 1960 Continued from Page B-1 shutout. Miller made 17 saves in his Sochi debut. “Yeah, I definitely had some nerves,” Miller said. “It was an important game to ensure that we’re at the top of our pool.” With plenty of support at the other end of the rink, the 2010 silver medal winner didn’t need to worry. “They were stronger on the puck,” Slovenia coach Matjaz
Kopitar said. “They’re strong. They’re fast.” Ryan McDonagh scored about a minute after Kessel’s third goal to put the Americans up 4-0. David Backes gave them a five-goal cushion early in the third. Kessel is the first American to score four goals in the threegame preliminary round of the Olympic tournament since Bill Cleary and Roger Christian in 1960. Fittingly, the native of
Madison, Wis., and his teammates were sporting throwback jerseys in the style Cleary and Christian wore at the games in Squaw Valley — “USA” from right shoulder to left hip. “We’ve got grit and determination throughout the lineup, but that’s the type of speed and skill we need,” Bylsma said. The U.S. also has two goalies, Quick and Miller, who are potentially great, and a good one in Jimmy Howard. Who
will be in net for the quarterfinals, when it’s win-or-go-home? “I’m not going to tell you that now,” Bylsma said after Sunday’s game. Luka Gracnar made 23 saves for Slovenia, who will face Austria in the qualification playoff round Tuesday after beating Slovakia and losing to the U.S. and Russia in preliminary play. Even if Slovenia doesn’t win another game, it has been a successful appearance for a
country that earned a surprising spot in the Olympic hockey tournament for the first time. Slovenia has just one NHL player, Anze Kopitar of the Los Angeles Kings, and he didn’t play in the third period of Sunday’s game because of flu-like symptoms, according to his father and coach. Anze Kopitar later announced he was feeling much better and looking forward to Slovenia’s next game.
“He don’t feel good, because he has something with the stomach,” Matjaz Kopitar said. “He didn’t feel well. He was without the power. Hopefully, he’s going to be better.” Slovenia was also without another key player, forward Sabahudin Kovacevic, who was suspended for one game for swinging his left elbow and landing it on the head of Slovakia’s Tomas Kopecky.

Yankees: N.Y. looks to Teixeira and Jeter to stabilize team Continued from Page B-1 Teixeira was limited to 15 games and Derek Jeter to 17, and Alex Rodriguez and Curtis Granderson also missed long stretches. After two days of canceled flights from New York, Teixeira started workouts four days ahead of the other position players. He fielded grounders at first base, took 53 swings off a tee and 43 more in batting practice in his first outdoor session since surgery last July 2 to repair a torn tendon sheath in his right wrist. Jeter, still recovering from the effects of a broken ankle in October 2012, has been working out at the minor complex since Jan. 20. He reports to the big league camp Wednesday, when he will hold a news conference to discuss his announcement last week that this will be his final season. With the Yankees weakened at second following the departure of Robinson Cano and at third because of Rodriguez’s season-long suspension, New York is counting on Teixeira and Jeter to stabilize an infield in flux. “They’re back in my mind, but I think you have to get them into games to see exactly where they’re at, to be fair to them and probably to alleviate any doubt that you might have,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. The retirement decision by Jeter, who turns 40 in June, shocked Teixeira. “I thought that Derek had a couple years left in him. I knew how excited he would be about this season, just the same way I am when you only play 15 or 17 games,” he said. “I really could have seen Derek playing until he was 44 or 45.” Teixeira turns 34 in April and hopes to have five more productive seasons. He might not be ready when New York’s exhibition season starts Feb. 25, but he thinks he’ll be on the field sometime during the first week, get 50 exhibition at-bats and be able to play at least 150 games during the regular season. He had more pop from his bat during his 49 righthanded swings than his 47 from the left side — although he said he felt his swing path was a lot better from the left. Given his injury, sustained while hitting off a tee last March 5, his wrist stiffness likely is more of an issue hitting left-handed — when the right hand provides most of the power.
“You can definitely tell I had surgery. But I had ankle surgery 13 years ago, and I could tell I had ankle surgery after 13 years,” he said. “So, it’s just something I’m going to have to make sure that I loosen up, and make sure I do all the proper rehab and strengthening exercises.” A two-time All-Star, Teixeira usually is a slow starter. He has a .278 career average and 341 homers, but through April 30 each year, his average has been .238 with 33 home runs in 11 seasons. A poor April wouldn’t necessarily mean he hasn’t sufficiently healed. “I can always use that ammo,” Yankees hitting coach Kevin Long said. “So that’s in our back pocket.” Teixeira said his surgeon, Dr. Keith Raskin of New York University School of Medicine, told him the wrist will continue to improve for a year after the operation. But there always will be worries of a setback until Teixeira proves to himself that the injury isn’t a hindrance, that he regularly can clear Yankee Stadium’s right-field wall with what broadcaster John Sterling calls a “Tex message.” “There’s going to be a mental part of it. He’s going to have to get over the hump,” Long said. Teixeira watched from his home in Connecticut as Yankees general manager Brian Cashman made his moves. “I was texting Cash like every two weeks, telling him congrats on another signing and great offseason,” he said. “I basically told him: You did your job, now it’s time for us to do ours. So no excuses this year. We have a team that can compete for a world championship.” Teixeira says he hasn’t been this eager for a season since he was a rookie with Texas in 2003. His bounce back could determine whether the Yankees rebound. “I take [a] silver lining in everything, and for me this year off — basically a year off — was me realizing how lucky I am to play baseball, realizing how much I loved playing baseball,” he said. “I did a lot of charity stuff this offseason and spent a bunch of time with my family, and I loved that time, but I’m a baseball player, and there’s nothing cooler than playing baseball for a living. And taking that year off really made realize that I want to do it as long as I can.”

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — With the famed No. 3 on his car and memories of the late Dale Earnhardt fresh in his mind, Austin Dillon took the fabled number out of hibernation and straight to the top at Daytona. Dillon reawakened the days of The Intimidator and proved he can handle the spotlight thrust on his ride in the 3, winning the pole Sunday for the season-opening Daytona 500. He took the top spot with a lap at 196.019 mph in NASCAR’s season opener in a car Richard Childress has refused to field at NASCAR’s top level since Earnhardt’s fatal accident on the last lap of the 2001 race. But with his 23-year-old grandson ready to move to the Sprint Cup Series, Childress allowed Dillon to use the number widely associated with the seven-time champion. Earn-
hardt won 67 races, six championships and the 1998 Daytona 500 driving the No. 3. Dillon was a kid when he posed for a picture with Earnhardt in Victory Lane following his breakthough 1998 win. He’ll have many more memories from this milestone, like the congratulatory handshake he received from Richard Petty when qualifying ended. NASCAR’s family roots run deep, so Childress never had to leave the family tree to find the right driver for the number. Dillon has been using it in NASCAR national competition since 2009, when he made his Truck Series debut in the No. 3. He won the Truck championship in 2011 driving the No. 3 for Richard Childress Racing, and the Nationwide title last season in the same number. So Childress knew — he always knew and has insisted that Earnhardt
gave his blessing long before his death — that Dillon could use the number if he ever made it to Cup. Dillon doesn’t take the responsibility lightly. “Everybody wants to see this number perform well, and that’s what my goals are,” Dillon said. “I love getting in that race car and driving it. I think once we get through some of these races here at the beginning of the year, everything will sink in, and I’ll get comfortable and be able to have some fun.” It’s the fourth time the No. 3 has won the pole for the Daytona 500. Buddy Baker did it in 1969, Ricky Rudd in 1983 and Earnhardt in 1996. Martin Truex Jr., driving a Chevrolet for Furniture Row Racing, qualified second with a lap at 195.852 mph. Truex’s engine is built by Earnhardt-Childress Racing, giving the company a sweep of the Daytona 500 front row.

Back in winner’s circle Bubba Watson wins in Riviera to capture first title since 2012 Masters By Doug Ferguson
The Associated Press
OS ANGELES — Bubba Watson lost track of time. He didn’t realize it had been nearly two years and 41 tournaments since his last vic-
tory. A reminder came Sunday afternoon, after he birdied the 18th hole to win the Northern Trust Open by two shots. Walking up the steps to the clubhouse he saw his son, Caleb, who was adopted shortly before Watson won the 2012 Masters. Watson was alone in his green jacket that day. This time, wife and son were at Riviera to watch a masterpiece. He played the final 39 holes without a bogey. He had a 64-64 weekend. He made up a four-shot deficit in six holes, and closed with the lowest round by a winner
of this tournament in 28 years. This wasn’t “Bubba” golf. It simply was great golf. And he couldn’t wait to celebrate. “When I won the Masters, it was just me,” Watson said. “Family members were there, but not my wife and not my son, who was just adopted at that point, and now is two weeks away from being 2 years old. What a thrill. We’ll have some pictures with him and my wife and the trophy, so it’s nice.” Watson won by two shots over Dustin Johnson, who closed with a 66 for the second straight week and got the same result — second place. Johnson finished one shot behind Jimmy Walker last week at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. “When you shoot 14 under on the weekend, it’s tough to beat that,” Johnson said. Watson, who started the final round four shots behind William McGirt, made up ground so quickly that he broke out of a four-way tie for the lead with a birdie on the eighth hole and made the turn in 30. Equally critical were a pair of par saves
with 7-foot putts on the 12th and 13th holes. It was quite a turnaround from his last event, the Phoenix Open, where Watson made two late bogeys and finished one shot behind Kevin Stadler. Presented another chance, he wasn’t about to let this one get away. Watson finished at 15-under 269, and he wasn’t the only big winner. Jason Allred, who went to college up the coast at Pepperdine, played bogey-free for a 68 and tied for third with Brian Harman, who also had a 68. Allred was a Monday qualifier, and this was his first regular PGA Tour event since he last had his card in 2008. The tie for third was a career-best for the 33-year-old Allred. He earned $388,600, which is more than he had made in his entire career, which included two full seasons on the PGA Tour. He now is exempt into the Honda Classic, which starts in two weeks — about the time his wife is due with their third child. “We’ll have fun figuring out what that looks like,” Allred said.
No. 4 Wichita State trumps Evansville The Associated Press
EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Ron Baker scored 26 points, and Fred VanVleet finWichita St. 84 ished with Evansville 68 18 points, eight assists and five steals to lead No. 4 Wichita State to an 84-68 victory over Evansville on Sunday. The Shockers (27-0, 14-0 Missouri Valley Conference) remained one of two unbeaten teams in major college basketball and extended their schoolrecord winning streak. They are the 21st team in Division I history to go 27-0, a list that
top-ranked Syracuse could join later this week. NO. 18 CREIGHTON 101, NO. 6 VILLANOVA 80 In Omaha, Neb, Doug McDermott matched his season high with 39 points and passed Larry Bird for 13th place on the Division I career scoring chart during Creighton’s victory over Villanova. Creighton’s second lopsided win over Villanova in a month moved the Bluejays (21-4, 11-2) into first place in the Big East, a half-game ahead of the Wildcats (22-3, 10-2). NEBRASKA 60, NO. 9 MICHIGAN STATE 51 In East Lansing, Mich., Terran Petteway scored 23 points, and
Walter Pitchford added 18 as Nebraska topped Michigan State. Petteway had 16 points in the last 20 minutes after Pitchford scored 12 before the break for the Cornhuskers (14-10, 6-6 Big Ten). NO. 13 LOUISVILLE 102, RUTGERS 54 In Louisville, Ky., Luke Hancock scored a career-high 25 points, including six 3-pointers, and Louisville throttled Rutgers. The Cardinals (21-4, 10-2 American Athletic Conference) made a season-high 16 shots from beyond the arc on 30 attempts for their fourth straight win, completing a season sweep of the Scarlet Knights (10-16, 4-9).
NO. 21 WISCONSIN 75, NO. 15 MICHIGAN 62 In Ann Arbor, Mich., Frank Kaminsky had 25 points and 11 rebounds, and Wisconsin smothered Michigan in the first half before holding on. The Wolverines (18-7, 10-3 Big Ten) cut an 18-point deficit to three in the second half, but Kaminsky personally went on a 7-2 run after that, helping Wisconsin regain control. TEMPLE 71, NO. 23 SMU 64 In Philadelphia, Dalton Pepper scored 24 points to help Temple beat SMU. Temple knocked off a Top 25 opponent for the first time since March 10 last year against No. 21 VCU.

Husband acts like a perpetual teen Dear Annie: The past four years of my marriage have been difficult. My husband and I have made many poor financial decisions, and we also have intimacy issues. I’m an artist. When our kids were young, I chose to do freelance work so I could stay at home. My husband has a steady job with a 9 to 5 workday. On the side, he is a talented musician and gets low-paying gigs a few times a year. Over time, my husband’s band equipment has become worn, and he has hinted that he’d like to upgrade. While I would like him to be happy, we are not in a financial position to invest in a hobby that offers little return. On the other hand, I am extremely well paid for my artistic craftsmanship and would like to invest in some technical equipment to further my career. If I am paid more, we could then finance my husband’s future musical purchases. Unfortunately, my husband’s response to not getting what he wants has been immature. He attacks my choices, and I resent the lack of respect for the sacrifices I’ve made to raise our kids. The kids are older now, but it seems that I’m not married to an equal partner, but rather a perpetual teenager. I love my husband, but I feel stuck in a relationship that is unhealthy in more ways than one. Your thoughts? — Got the Blues Dear Blues: It is not unusual for couples in their 40s and 50s to reassess their lives, wondering where their youthful dreams went. Like you, your husband may feel stuck, believing he could have had a career as a musician instead of the one that helps provide for his family. Please don’t turn this into a standoff. Have a gentle, loving conversation. Ask for his input. But if money issues are an ongoing problem, it might help to enlist a third party with better financial acumen to referee. Dear Annie: Why do women announcers who appear on the TV
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH Decisions made in the afternoon might not be as sound as you would like them to be. Recognize that you need to think about the implications. Tonight: As you like it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH In the morning, maintain your focus on a matter involving your career. Your sense of humor emerges when dealing with a friend. Tonight: Hang with your friends. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Recognize what is happening with a relationship in which information might not be properly communicated between the parties involved. Tonight: Till the wee hours. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH You could discover the benefits of having a conversation. One-on-one relating resolves a problem better than any other method can. Tonight: Detach and observe. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH It can be great to act spontaneously, but sometimes you need to think more carefully about the actions you take. Tonight: A little consideration goes a long way.

Today in history Today is Monday, Feb. 17, the 48th day of 2014. There are 317 days left in the year. This is Presidents’ Day. Today’s highlight in history: On Feb. 17, 1864, during the Civil War, the Union ship USS Housatonic was rammed and sunk in Charleston Harbor, S.C., by the Confederate hand-cranked submarine HL Hunley, which also sank.
news and weather programs dress so trashy? They wear miniskirts up to their rears, bare arms and shoulders, and low necklines showing everything. The men on these same programs always look professional, with nice suits or sport jackets. I’ve heard people say that a woman’s knees are the ugliest part of the body, and yet they wear short skirts above the knees. Why don’t their bosses stop all of this vulgar dress? — Not a Prude Dear Not: What makes you think the women are selecting this clothing? More likely, the producers of the shows, encourage the women to dress this way because “sex sells.” In all fairness, national news announcers, both male and female, tend to dress more professionally. But if your local news has the men in suits and the women in low-cut blouses and miniskirts, it is sexist, and you should write the station and say so. Dear Annie: You sometimes receive letters from grandparents who feel sad because they don’t receive thank-you notes or phone calls from their grandchildren. Following retirement, my husband and I moved 12 hours away from our children and grandchildren. After upgrading our cellphones so we could text and take pictures, we quickly reaped the rewards. The teenage grandchildren ALWAYS respond within minutes when we text them (keep it brief). They often send thank-you notes via text. And the little ones love FaceTime (on their parents’ phones) and interact with us in real time. We have set up photo album streams that we can all access to share pictures. We were really amazed at how much this has kept us connected with family, and it is well worth the added cost. It’s a big step for many grandparents to take, but most providers offer free instruction, and once you get into it, it becomes easy and fun. — A Happy and Well-connected Grandma
