Lobbyist atop contribution list backs giving ban Bullington led peers in New Mexico last year with $81K distributed to political campaigns for clients By Steve Terrell
The New Mexican
J.D. Bullington, a longtime New Mexico lobbyist on contract to represent more than 20 clients, made
$81,050 in campaign contributions to New Mexico politicians on behalf of his clients last year — more than any other lobbyist registered in the state. But Bullington said last week he doesn’t think a good lobbyist needs to
hand out the cash to do a good job. In fact, he said, he’s a staunch supporter of banning all contributions from lobbyists. “I’m an expert in the issues I advocate,” Bullington said. “I was on my high school debate team. I can make my case armed just with valid arguments.” Judging from past years, prohibiting

LA BAJADA MESA — Just off Waldo Canyon Road, south of Interstate 25, cows graze the dusty land where an Albuquerque company wants to mine basalt. Albuquerque-based Rockology and Buena Vista Estates, a development company owned by Peter Naumburg and Hugh J. Graham Jr., have applied to rezone and mine a 50-acre parcel of land on the mesa. Buena Vista Estates owns more than 5,000 acres, which are currently for sale, on the mesa. A hearing on the application is scheduled Feb. 20 before the Santa Fe County Development Review Committee. The black basalt rock is prized as the crushed material used in asphalt, roadway base course and readymix concrete. For residents in the nearby villages of Cerrillos and Madrid, who can see La Bajada’s historic dark escarpment from the south, this is the latest call to battle. They roused the public troops the last two times the same company applied to Santa Fe County for permission to dig pits on the mesa and scrape out the rock. “It is an utterly destructive use of the land,” said Diane Senior, who lives in an off-grid, solar-powered home with a view of the entire mesa. Rockology owner Steve Hooper, who also owns the aggregate company Buildology, said if the project is allowed, the plan is to operate the mine for 25 years. The mine would create three pits, each about 60 feet deep. One pit would be mined at a time, for seven or eight years, and then reclaimed with topsoil from the site. The mine would move and stockpile 34,000 cubic yards of dirt and mine 1.26 million cubic yards of basalt. Santa Fe County has agreed to sell water to the project, even though it is outside the county’s service area. “We have issued a willing and able letter to provide

Declassification of data critical to future scientific efforts ABOUT THe SeRIeS The Santa Fe Institute is a private, nonprofit, independent research and education center founded in 1984, where top researchers gather to study and understand the theoretical foundations and patterns underlying the complex systems that are most critical to human society. This column is part of a series written by researchers at the Santa Fe Institute and published in The New Mexican.
id you know top-secret intelligence by the U.S. government has played a key role in helping scientists understand how human societies and ecosystems have evolved over the last 10,000 years? The catch, of course, is that this has happened only after the declassification of the intelligence. I am an archaeologist and anthropologist at the Santa Fe Institute. With my colleagues, I study the long-term evolution of human societies, seeking the shared underlying principles that are responsible for the emergence of complex social, political and economic organization. To do this, we need two things: ideas about how things happened and data to evaluate those ideas. The evaluation of ideas with data leads to new ideas; this is the process that leads to scientific discovery. Here is a story about a discovery in which declassified top-secret data was critical. We know from archaeology
that the first largescale societies with a differentiated labor force, record-keeping bureaucracies and political systems that united communities beyond kinship emerged on the planet Eric Rupley at least 6,000 years ago. Science in a This happened first in Complex World Mesopotamia — not just the land between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, but all the lands drained by them in what is now southern Turkey, western Iran, Syria and Iraq. The evolution of these first economies, we now know, occurred across the entire region. We didn’t always know this. Twenty years ago, we used to think the evolution of the earliest economies occurred only in a restricted area of south-

ern Mesopotamia, mostly south of Baghdad. The area, called the “heartland of cities” by the eminent archaeologist (and former Santa Fe Institute trustee) Robert McCormick Adams, requires irrigation for agriculture. New ways of thinking and new evidence have changed our view. Initially, we envisioned a core area of initial social innovation, while regions outside the core were “under-developed” and only passively participated in the creation of the first complex societies. The mechanisms for the creation of a centralized bureaucracy were thought to have stemmed from the environmental characteristics of the core: In the earlier part of this century, some archaeologists believed it arose from the need to manage irrigation. But when it became clear that complex irrigation systems do not require

NATION&WORLD Best in Bowl Seven Super Bowl commercials you’ll want see more than once By Maura Judkis
The Washington Post
n the many breaks during Sunday’s big game, a variety of eye-catching ads kept viewers glued to the screen. Here is a rundown of our “elite eight” — from puppies to puppets, and from Danica to Dannon:
Budweiser The premise: One farm is for the Budweiser Clydesdales; the other is for puppies. When two of them become pals, fences can’t keep them apart. This continues the story of last year’s Budweiser commercial, which featured an interspecies friendship between a Clydesdale and the trainer who raised him from infancy. The punch line: When the puppy is adopted, it looks as if it’s all over for these pals — but then the Clydesdales stage a dramatic intervention. The verdict: Never underestimate the public’s appetite for a commercial that has a puppy in it. This was the most-watched ad on YouTube, with more than 33 million views, in the days leading up to the Super Bowl.
Axe Peace The premise: Leaders in North Korea and Iran are among the troubled nations alluded to in a tense sequence of events — an advancing tank, a military march, a soldier with a machine gun. The punch line: But just as we’ve begun to think the worst, the soldiers begin to abandon their weapons and embrace the women they love. That military march is a grand tribute to the dictator’s wife. The red button deploys fireworks, not bombs. The message here is peace, as the newest line of Axe is called. The verdict: This is something new: a heartwarming commercial from Eau de Bro body spray company Axe. In a departure from its usual schlubby-dude-wearingAxe-attracts-bikini-babe marketing strategy, Axe has shifted its message to something softer. Not only does the ad support a partnership with cease-fire advocates Peace One Day, but it’s also gripping and cinematic, with a great twist.
Dannon Oikos Greek yogurt The premise: John Stamos, the reigning ladies’ man of lactose for the third straight year, is once again eating yogurt with a woman. He’s having trouble getting the spoon to his mouth, so
she helps him out by licking it off of his lips. He senses an opportunity and — oops! — drips it in his lap. The punch line: But his Full House castmates, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier, aren’t about to let NASCAR driver Danica Patrick, center, wearing a muscle suit, him score. Needless to say, the appears with bodybuilders in GoDaddy.com’s 2014 Super Bowl cleanliness-obsessed Saget is not commercial. AP PHOTO/GODADDY.COM the person that Stamos was hoping would utter the phrase, “Take off your pants, Greek boy.” The verdict: Given the media blitz that the Full House castmates undertook in recent days — including a Reddit Q&A and a skit with Jimmy Fallon — Dannon is really getting its money’s worth this year.
GoDaddy The premise: Throngs of hulking bodybuilders are running through a city — and they’re led by GoDaddy spokeswoman Danica Patrick, who’s been considerably beefed up, thanks to some veiny, prosthetic muscles. But why is the siren call attracting all these meatheads? A frame grab of Anheuser-Busch’s 2014 Super Bowl commercial The punch line: They’re about titled ‘Puppy Love.’ AP PHOTO/ANHEUSER-BUSCH to stampede a spray-tanning salon, whose owner hosts her website on GoDaddy. “It’s ‘go’ time,” she says, spritzing a little orange puff of tanning solution. The verdict: Last Fall, GoDaddy — maker of the most notoriously provocative commercials — announced that it was dropping its scantily-clad-babe strategy for something a little less sleazy. It’s a decision that has already paid off, as this year’s commercial is one of the funniest of the bunch.
Kia The premise: Laurence Fishburne returns as Morpheus from The Matrix, moonlighting as a valet at a fancy restaurant. When an attractive couple approaches, he presents them with an echo of the movie’s choice: blue key or red key? Red, he says, will make them “never look at luxury the same way again.” The punch line: They take it, of course, and some weird, Matrix-y things start to happen — flying cars, exploding streetlights. It’s all done to the unexpected tune “Nessun Dorma” from the opera Turandot. The verdict: One hopes they tipped him well.
they cue the music Hot Chocolate’s “You Sexy Thing.” The punch line: The bull is offloaded into a field of cows and hello, ladies. With perfect comedic timing, he licks his lips as he surveys his prospects. The verdict: It’s nice to see a rancher-and-his-truck commercial that doesn’t take itself so seriously.
The premise: A rugged-looking gentleman takes a bull on a road trip. The ad seems like a typical truck commercial featuring farmland and Americana, until
The premise: Terry Crews is driving on a dusty road when he comes upon a broken-down bus. When he stops to offer aid, the Muppets of Electric Mayhem

Top Republicans say they support N.J. Gov. Christie TRENTON, N.J. — High-profile Republicans were adamant Sunday that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie should not resign from his post as chairman of the Republican Governors Association following a former ally’s claim that there is evidence Christie knew about an apparently politically motivated traffic jam earlier than he has said. The support from former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Wisconsin U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan put Republicans on the offensive and the Democratic chairman of a state legislative committee investigating the September lane closures near the George Washington Bridge on the defensive the day Christie’s state hosts the Super Bowl.
Violent radicals prove to be wild card in Ukraine’s protests KIEV, Ukraine — Wearing masks, helmets and protective gear on the arms and legs, radical activists are the wild card of the Ukraine protests now starting their third month, declaring they’re ready to resume violence if the stalemate persists. When the protests started in late November, attracting crowds sometimes above 100,000 and visits from Western officials, the gatherings’ general determined peacefulness was an integral part of their claim to legitimacy. But in mid-January, the image of placid but principled people changed sharply, to frightening scenes of protesters heaving stones and firebombs at police. The violence was sparked by the radicals within the larger protest movement, angered by President Viktor Yanukovych’s implementation of harsh anti-protest laws and increasingly impatient with the protesters’ failure to achieve any of their demands. In a vivid demonstration of frustration, they sprayed opposition leader Vitali Klitschko, the towering former heavyweight boxing champion, with a fire extinguisher when he pleaded for clashes to stop.
Thai elections peaceful, but crisis far from over BANGKOK — Thailand held nationwide elections without bloodshed Sunday despite widespread fears of violence. But the country’s bitter political crisis is far from over, and one of the next flash points is likely to be an effort to nullify the vote. Although balloting was largely peaceful, protesters forced thousands of polling booths to close in Bangkok and the south, disenfranchising millions of registered voters. Not all Parliament seats will be filled as a result, meaning the nation could stay mired in political limbo for months with the winning party unable to form a new government. The struggle to hold the vote was part of a 3-monthold conflict that has split the country between supporters of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and protesters who allege her government is too corrupt to rule. The crisis, in which demonstrators have occupied major intersections across Bangkok and forced government ministries to shut down and work elsewhere, overshadowed the poll’s run-up to such an extent that campaigning and stump speeches laying out party platforms were virtually non-existent.
Syrian air raid kills at least 36, including 17 kids, in Aleppo BEIRUT — Syrian government helicopters and warplanes unleashed a wave of airstrikes on more than a dozen opposition-held neighborhoods in the northern city of Aleppo on Sunday, firing missiles and dropping crude barrel bombs in a ferocious attack that killed at least 36 people, including 17 children, activists said. Aleppo has been a key battleground in Syria’s civil war since rebels swept into the city in mid-2012 and wrested most of the eastern and southern neighborhoods from the government. Since then, the fighting has settled into a bloody grind, with neither side capable of mounting an offensive that would expel its opponents from the city. The Associated Press

pile into his car and take him on a weird, wonderful trip — through an old ladies’ bingo game, a winery, a parade and more. It’s all to the tune of a new Muppet jingle, “We ain’t got no room for boring.” The punch line: Boring old Terry Crews starts to loosen up a bit — maybe a bit too much, as his neighbor Kermit finds him shirtless and wild-eyed, with a tie around his head, singing the Muppets’ song. The verdict: Basically, it’s the kid-friendly version of the Bud Light commercial that takes one man on a surprising, celebritypacked day of adventures. Except these celebrities are made of felt.

Report: Abortion rate lowest since ’73 By David Crary
The Associated Press
NEW YORK — The U.S. abortion rate declined to its lowest level since 1973, and the number of abortions fell by 13 percent between 2008 and 2011, according the latest national survey of abortion providers conducted by a prominent research institute. The Guttmacher Institute, which supports legal access to abortion, said in a report being issued Monday that there were about 1.06 million abortions in 2011 — down from about 1.2 million in 2008. Guttmacher’s figures are of interest on both sides of the abortion debate because they are more up-to-date and in some ways more comprehensive than abortion statistics compiled by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. According to the report,
the abortion rate dropped to 16.9 abortions per 1,000 women ages 15-44 in 2011, well below the peak of 29.3 in 1981 and the lowest since a rate of 16.3 in 1973. Guttmacher and other groups supporting abortion rights have been apprehensive about the recent wave of laws restricting abortion access that have been passed in Republican-controlled legislatures. However, the report’s authors said the period that they studied — 2008 to 2011 — predates the major surge of such laws starting with the 2011 legislative session. The lead author, Rachel Jones, also said there appeared to be no link to a decline in the
number of abortion providers. According to the report, the total number of providers dropped by 4 percent, to 1,720, between 2008 and 2011, and the number of abortion clinics declined by just 1 percent to 839. According to Jones, the drop in abortions was likely linked to a steep national decline in overall pregnancy and birth rates. “Contraceptive use improved during this period, as more women and couples were using highly effective longacting reversible contraceptive methods,” she said. “Moreover, the recent recession led many women and couples to want to avoid or delay pregnancy

and childbearing.” While the overall abortion rate declined, the proportion of abortions entailing early medication procedures continued to increase. According to Guttmacher, about 239,400 abortions of this type were performed in 2011, representing 23 percent of all non-hospital abortions, an increase from 17 percent in 2008. Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee, described the overall drop in abortion numbers as evidence that the anti-abortion movement’s lobbying and legislative efforts were having an impact.

14-year-old freshman fired on a prayer group, killing three female students and wounding five, sees few differences in how shootings are carried out today. The one consistency, he said, is that the shooters are males confronting hopelessness. “You see troubled young men who are desperate, and they strike out and they don’t see that they have any hope,” Bond said. Schools generally are much safer than they were five, 10 or 15 years ago, Stephens said. While a single death is one too many, Stephens noted that perspective is important. In Chicago there were 500 homicides in 2012, about the same number in the nation’s 132,000-plus K-12 schools over two decades. “I believe schools are much safer than they used to be, but clearly they still have a good ways to go,” Stephens said. The recent budget deal in Congress provides $140 million
to support safe school environments, a $29 million increase, according to the office of Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. About 90 percent of districts have tightened security since the Newtown shootings, estimates Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers. Many schools now have elaborate school safety plans and more metal detectors, surveillance cameras and fences. They’ve taken other steps, too, such as requiring ID badges and dress codes. Similar to fire drills, some schools practice locking down classrooms, among their responses to potential violence. The incident involving the 5-year-old in Memphis led to the use of hand-held metal detecting wands inside elementary schools in Shelby County’s school district.

Santa Fe Police are looking for a man who robbed a Santa Fe jewelry store in plain sight of surveillance cameras last week. The suspect, described as Hispanic or Native American with dark hair, sunglasses, a gray and black hooded sweatshirt and gray striped sweatpants, shoved about $1,900 worth of jewelry from the Turquoise Butterfly store in his pockets at
other customers before starting his shoplifting spree. He took a squash blossom necklace, five silver chains, three copper and silver rings, a turquoise and pearl bracelet, and a silver bracelet with azurite and malachite stones. He walked in front of the video camera several times during his 15-minute visit. Anonymous tipsters can call Crime Stoppers at 955-5050 or the Santa Fe Police Department at 428-3710.

The New Mexican
osé “Chuscales” Valle Fajardo creció en una época de agitación política contra los gitanos en España. El país al mando de Francisco Franco, líder militar español en el poder desde 1939 hasta 1975, perseguía a los gitanos. Valle Fajardo y su familia esquivaron el acoso de Franco. Se sintieron a salvo en su casa en Granado, dentro de una cueva, como era la costumbre gitana de ese tiempo. Y en esa casa llena de parientes lejanos fue donde Valle Fajardo, a la edad de 6, tomó la guitarra y aprendió a tocarla durante clases de tíos y otros guitarritas que se presentaban en el área. El afamado guitarrista flamenco, 57, ha vivido en Santa Fe los últimos 20 años y tocado frecuentemente en hoteles y restaurantes. Algunas veces lo acompaña su esposa, Mina, bailadora flamenca y sus cuatro hijos. Su apodo, Chuscales, es una palabra de la lengua gitana que significa “la parte crujiente de una hogaza.” Cuando Valles Fajardo era niño, dice, su abuelo lo vio tomando parte del pan del horno y lo llamó “chusco.”
Desde entonces, su familia y amigos lo llaman “Chuscales,” ahora su nombre artístico. Al comenzar a tocar la guitarra, tomó sus clases muy en serio. Aún así, describe toda esa época más como una fiesta. “La gente llegaba [a la cueva] por la mañana y se quedaban hasta la noche,” comenta. “Venían bailando y tomando whiskey o vino, también había comida. Fue ahí donde aprendí [a tocar la guitarra]. En ese cuarto, había dos guitarra, dos bailadores y dos cantadores. Todo el mundo fumaba y tomaba en ese ambiente cerrado, porque la caverna no tenía ventanas.” Valles Fajardo comenzó a dedicar todo su tiempo a la guitarra a la edad de 12, cuando dejó la escuela. Su padre le dio la opción de dejar la escuela con la condición de tocar la guitarra diariamente. “Cada día, aprendíamos uno del otro,” dice. En sus 20s, Fajardo estaba ya de gira en conciertos, viajando por todo el mundo con grupos de flamenco. Se presentó en países de Europa y en Canadá, donde vivió por 10 años mientras tocaba con una compañía. Hace 16 años, Valles Fajardo fue a un espectáculo de flamenco en

Home sales in Santa Fe rise 23 percent By Bruce Krasnow The New Mexican
he Santa Fe Association of Realtors will announce the details at its media breakfast Jan. 16, but the news is now official: 2012 was the best year for residential home sales since 2007. Alan Ball, an agent with Keller Williams Santa Fe who keeps monthly sales data, reports residential sales hit 1,641 last year — up 23 percent from 2011. But as we’ve reported here all year, that does not mean all is well with the sellers. Due to distressed short sales and foreclosures, the average sales prices dropped 6 percent in 2012 to $421,577. But the year ended with a bang as December saw 150 sales — and the fourth quarter itself saw three strong months in a row, and that despite the fiscal uncertainties coming from Washington, D.C. uuu

His business is hopping
Knowledge about beer-making given and received at Santa Fe Homebrew Supply
By Chris Quintana The New Mexican
ami Nordby doesn’t sell beer — he just sells all the materials a person needs to make it at Santa Fe Homebrew Supply. Nordby stocks wine-making, beercrafting and cheese-curdling materials, though the majority of his business comes from brewers. To that end, he stocks supplies for extract brewing, which he said can be easier but costs more on the ingredients end, and for all-grain-brewing, a more time-intensive process. He said that in the past, beermakers made up 85 percent of his total sales, though he said the recent crop of fruit in the state has sent more winemakers his way. And while he doesn’t have a product he’d call his best-seller, he said he does sell a lot of brewing starter kits and recipe packs that include every ingredient needed for a single batch. To that end, he can also help brewers come up with new recipes or order speciality items. “There are so many directions people can go,” Nordby said at his shop on Thursday. “Imagination is the only limit.” Nordby’s shop is split roughly into two sections: equipment in the storefront and ingredients in the back. In the front, giant glass containers rest on shelves alongside powdered chemicals. Smaller items such as spigots, beer caps and yeast line the smaller shelves. It’s the back of the shop that feels

more like a brewery. Three-foot-tall plastic containers house both local and international grain for all-grain brewing, and a couple of freezers hold several varieties of green and earthy-smelling hops, another common ingredient in beer making. Nordby can tell which grain will create a chocolate porter or which hops will make a beer more bitter with an ease that comes from years of familiarity with his craft. But it wasn’t always that way for him. The shop was a gamble, Nordby said, especially given that he didn’t have a lot of brewing experience when he began the venture. Nordby said that he had a passion for the craft, but he did it on a small level
— he used to brew in his apartment. But about five years ago, he said, he noticed Santa Fe didn’t have a local brew supply store, so he and a couple of friends financed the store. “We just didn’t know any better,” he said. Part of his success came from an advertising campaign that consumed about 25 percent of his initial budget. From there, people started talking about the shop, which he said kept him in business. His wife also had another child during that five-year period, so he hired some part-time help to keep the doors open during times when he was away. But because the store earnings went to employees, Nordby said, his
inventory declined. He is back at work full time now, and Nordby said he’s working on replenishing his once-expansive stock. In the five years since he started, Nordby said that he’s learned a lot from customers who were experienced brewers, and now he can offer that accumulated knowledge to newbies. John Rowley said he is one of the customers who has benefited from Nordby’s knowledge. “He was a great resource for sure,” Rowley said. “He knows a lot, and he wants to help.” Rowely also is president of the Sangre de Cristo Craft Brewers, a group that Rowley said frequents Homebrew. And though it’s located on the south side of town, Santa Fe Homebrew Supply is still the closet supply store for small brewers in Santa Fe, Rowley said. Before Nordby set up shop in 2007, Santa Fe brewers drove to Albuquerque or farther for supplies. Rowley said that while stores in Albuquerque might have more esoteric supplies, he prefers to avoid the trip and support local business. Rowley also said he recommends Nordby’s store to new brewers. “We got a great thing going here; it’s a really supportive shop,” Rowley said. “I wouldn’t go to Albuquerque unless you absolutely have to. It’s almost too much, and it can be intimidating for a new brewer.” Contact Chris Quintana at email@example.com.

The restoration project at La Fonda is well under way, and one of the challenges for Jennifer Kimball and her managers is to phase the project so it doesn’t impact visitors. To accomplish that, contractors try to start work at 9 a.m. on the first 100 rooms now under construction. As those rooms come back on line in April or May, the renovation moves to the next 80 rooms with the goal of having all the rooms completely modernized and ungraded by Indian Market weekend. Kimball is also proud that all of the 220 workers will remain employed during the nine-month project and that vacancy rates have not been impacted. Because of the lower supply of rooms, occupancy is close to 100 percent — of course, the $89 a night special La Fonda is offering during the remodeling doesn’t hurt with bargainconscious travelers. Majority ownership in La Fonda still rests with the four daughters of the late Sam and Ethel Ballen — Lois, Penina, Lenore and Marta Ballen. uuu
The National Association of the Remodeling industry’s fourth-quarter Remodeling Business Pulse data of current and future remodeling business conditions has experienced significant growth across all indicators, with forecasting in the next three months hitting its all-time highest level. The significantly positive results have a lot to do with homeowner security, remodelers say. “Remodelers are indicating major growth in the future, with many saying that clients are feeling more stable in their financial future and their employment situations; therefore, they are spending more freely on remodeling needs,” says Tom O’Grady, association chairman and a builder in Drexel Hill, Pa. Growth indicators in the last quarter of 2012 are as follows: u Current business conditions up 2.1 percent since last quarter u Number of inquiries up 3.9 percent since last quarter u Requests for bids up 3.7 percent since last quarter u Conversion of bids to jobs up 3.5 percent since last quarter u Value of jobs sold is up 4.3 percent since last quarter Still, according to the data, expectations for 2013 are even brighter. Two-thirds of remodelers forecasted the next three months positively, and the rating jumped 13.1 percent from last quarter. Drivers of this positive outlook continue to be postponement of projects (81 percent reporting) and the improvement of home prices (51 percent reporting). “Now that the election is over, consumer confidence is starting to grow and so has remodelers’ confidence,” O’Grady says. “NARI members are looking forward to having a well-deserved, productive year
Nueva York, donde Mina, reconocida bailadora de flamenco, interpretaba. Después del evento, dice, ambos asistieron a una fiesta y un año después se casaron. La pareja vivió en Nueva York por unos años y decidieron mudarse a Santa Fe, meses antes de los ataques del 11 de septiembre. Valles Fajardo comenta que siempre le gustó Santa Fe e hizo amigos siempre que venía de visita con la compañía de danza de Canadá. Ahora con cuatro hijos, dice, la pareja tiene su tiempo muy limitado para ir de gira. “Antes, tenía tiempo de practicar de 10 a.m. a 11 p.m.,” menciona. “Ahora a penas si puedo hacerlo por 10 minutos.” Sus hijos, tres niños y una niña, también se presentan en sus espectáculo. Y muy parecida a la caverna de familia en España, su cochera se ha convertido en el estudio de la familia, donde practican juntos y se preparan para sus eventos. “No muchos tienen la suerte de crecer en las cavernas, aprendiendo flamenco de una familia gitana donde la música viene de tradición, de leyenda a leyenda,” dice Valles Fajardo en la biografía de su sitio de internet. “Doy gra-

rampo Caralampio y Grama Cuca estaban getting ready for church esa mañana. Ahora que el Lent ya se había comenzado, they would levantarse and get out of bed and head out of la puerta. They would also get Canutito to levantarse and ir con ellos a la iglesia. “I wonder what could be keeping al niño so long?” grampo asked Grama Cuca. “Ya hace muncho que él está en el bathroom. He is probably lavándose la cara real good. You know que Canutito is now at an age ahora dónde he likes to mirarse well en público. He is probably picking up the towels del suelo and hanging Larry Torres them up. He likes to be neat Growing up así,” grampo Spanglish remarked. “The reason que you think Canutito hangs up las toallas that he drops on the floor es porque he doesn’t use them del todo. Little boys generally don’t wash their manos or their faces tampoco. Nomás hacen dip los tips de sus dedos en el agua and they think que están good to go,” grama replied. “Cuando yo era young,” grampo said, sentándose on the kitchen chair, “I used to like to estar really lambidito. I would slick back mi cabello con Brilliantine y a veces I would even lavarme los elbows. When I would come out el común todo spiffied-up mi mamá would just look at me and hacerme un dengue.” “What’s ‘un dengue,’ grampo?” Canutito said, coming out del bathroom and putting on su cotón. “Un ‘dengue,’ ” chimed in Grama Cuca, es un sign de disapproval.” She hizo purse her lips and then los hizo twist to the side. “This is a dengue,” she said. “It used to be done cuando you didn’t want to say unkind words out loud pero you wanted a las personas to know que no te gustaba something. Entonces you would make una trompita con la boca and twist it para un lão.” “I really don’t know porque you just don’t say que no te gusta something,” Canutito remarked. “If I didn’t like algo I think que I would just decir que it stinks and be done with it.” “Pero there are certain ventajas to making dengues instead,” Grama Cuca defended herself as she walked out of la casa pa’l garage. “¿Cómo qué, grama?” Canutito asked, getting in between su grampo y su grama en la troca. “Well, for starters,” grama replied, as they began driving pa’la iglesia, “Whenever you make a dengue, you can do it in back de la otra persona. You can expresar disapproval sin que they even know about it. I used to throw dengues all the time cuando mis amigas y yo would look a esas girls en la escuela who used to like to think que estaban todas cool and didn’t talk con nosotros. Yo no era una de las muchachas populares so I liked to throw dengues at them discreetly.” Just then Grampo Caralampio pulled up in front de la iglesia. It was jam-packed porque todos los faithful would begin to go to church los primeros días de Lent and then as La Cuaresma got longer, they quit coming poco a poquito. Grampo, grama and Canutito walked to the front of la iglesia and sat down cerca del altar. The priest came out and began to preach about the need de hacer penitencia and sacrificio during La Cuaresma. He even went so far as to suggest que los niños should give up desserts como chocolate y dulces. Grama Cuca nodded toda approvingly pero cuando she looked to the side, she saw que Grampo Caralampio and Canutito were sitting en el pew throwing dengues at the priest cada vez que no hacían approve of doing sacrifice como el párroco suggested. She was sorry she had ever taught them about dengues …

TECH By Barbara Ortutay The Associated Press
EW YORK — Google Glass is getting glasses. Google is adding prescription frames and new styles of detachable sunglasses to its computerized, Internet-connected goggles known as Glass. The move comes as Google Inc. prepares to make Glass available to the general population later this year. Currently, Glass is available only to the tens of thousands of people who are testing and creating apps for it. Glass hasn’t actually had glasses in its frame until now. Glass is basically a small computer, with a camera and a display screen above the wearer’s right eye. The device sits roughly at eyebrow level, higher than where eyeglasses would go. It lets wearers surf the Web, ask for directions and take photos or videos. Akin to wearing a smartphone without having to hold it in your hands, Glass also lets people read their email, share photos on Twitter and Facebook, translate phrases while traveling or partake in video chats. Glass follows some basic voice commands, spoken after the words “OK, Glass.” The gadget itself is not changing with this announcement. Rather, Google plans to make various attachments available. Last week, the Mountain View, Calif., company began offering four styles of prescription frames and two new types of shades available to its “explorers” — the people who are trying out Glass. The frames will cost $225 and the shades, $150. That’s on top of the $1,500 price of Glass. Users can take the frames to any vision care provider for prescription lenses, though Google says it is working with insurance provider Vision Service Plan to train eye-care providers around the U.S. on how to work with Glass. Google says some insurance plans may cover the cost of the frames. Isabelle Olsson, the lead designer for Google Glass, says the new frames open the spectacles up to a larger audience. She demonstrated the new frames to The Associated Press last week at the Google Glass Basecamp, an airy loft on the eighth floor of New York City’s Chelsea Market. It’s one of the places where Glass users go to pick up their wares and learn how to use them. Walking in, visitors are greeted, of course, by a receptionist wearing Google Glass. “We want as many people as possible to wear it,” she said. To that end, Glass’s designers picked four basic but distinct frame styles. On one end is a chunky “bold” style that stands out. On the other is a “thin” design — to blend in as much as possible. Olsson said Google won’t be able to compete with the thousands of styles offered at typical eyeglasses stores. Instead, Glass’ designers looked at what types of glasses are most popular, what people wear the most and, importantly, what they look good in. The latter has been a constant challenge for the nascent wearable technology industry, especially for something like Google Glass, designed to be worn on your face. When Google unveiled Glass in a video nearly two years ago, it drew unfavorable comparisons to Bluetooth headsets, the trademarks of the fashion-ignorant technophile. In designing Google Glass, Olsson and her team focused on three design principles with the goal of creating something that people want to wear. These were lightness, simplicity and scalability. That last one means having different options available for different people — just as there are different styles of headphones, from in-ear buds to huge aviator-style monstrosities. Google Glass currently comes in five colors — “charcoal,” a lighter shade of gray called “shale,” white, tangerine and bright blue “sky.” The frame attachments are all titanium. Users can mix and match. “People need to be able to choose,” Olsson said. “These products need to be lifestyle products.”

Unpaid bill leads to a costly video game battle ‘EVE Online’ conflict could cost gamers $500K in real-world cash By Derrik J. Lang
The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES — James Carl was asleep when the first shot was fired. As he slumbered away in Costa Mesa, Calif., the 29-year-old banker’s virtual space fleet was under siege on the morning of Jan. 27 in what’s become the most destructive and expensive battle in the 10-year history of EVE Online, the gargantuan online sci-fi video game. EVE Online — with more than 500,000 players from around the world piloting starships, trading goods and engaging in galactic espionage — utilizes its own in-game currency, and Carl expects the damage from last Monday’s conflict to be the game equivalent of about $500,000 in real-world cash, based on data compiled from within the game. The skirmish first erupted after a member of Carl’s coalition missed a payment to protect an area that’s been used as a staging ground for a war raging between Carl’s Pandemic and N3 coalition versus CFC and Russian forces. “Supposedly, it was set up for auto-pay, just like any other bill in real life, but either that didn’t happen or the money wasn’t in the wallet, and then everything just escalated out of control from there,” Carl said. “The dust is still settling on that issue. Everyone is just focused right now on fighting to try to regain control of the system.” During the encounter last Monday, more than 100 Titan vessels were destroyed. The megaships, which are akin to the Death Star from Star Wars, are the largest ships in the game and are worth about $3,000 each in real-world money. The Titans also take months for gamers to build. That’s months in real time: a lot of nights, weekends and days-off actually spent constructing the virtual warships. Carl was awakened by a messaging app on his phone used by alliance members alerting him that their system B-R5RB was under attack by rivals. He wasn’t scheduled to work in real life Monday, so he spent the entire day sending virtual ships into the fray. He said dozens of his alliance members took off work to join the fight, which is being waged by more than 4,000 players — and spectated by thousands more on the game streaming service Twitch. It’s an unprecedented battle unique to EVE, which simulates a universe of more than 7,000 stars and whose virtual economy is linked to real-world money, unlike many other online role-playing games, such as World of Warcraft and Lord of the Rings Online. “I’d be lying if I said our servers weren’t sweating a bit,” said EVE Online spokesman Ned Coker of CCP Games, the Reykjavik, Iceland-based video game developer who created the online universe. “Allowing players free movement wherever they want in a game with over half a million players means for some pretty tricky technological requirements.” To compensate for thousands of starship captains battling each other online, Coker said CCP Games instituted what it calls “time dilation,” which slows down the game’s servers to about 10 percent of normal time, so players aren’t dropped and their commands are issued in the order in which they were received. Carl said it has made for a massive but slow battle. “In many ways, it’s a quintessential sci-fi experience, where thousands of people from all around the globe are waging a huge conflict that will have real repercussions on the politics, economy and social structures of a virtual universe,” Coker said. The real-world value of EVE currency is based on an actual exchange rate set within the game, but the primary basis for value in the game’s virtual economy is the time and skill that gamers put into such concepts as the mining of minerals, the selling of goods and services, or the stealing of goods and money — just don’t get caught. However, if players want a shortcut, they can put realworld money into the game to buy EVE currency and equipment, as determined by the exchange rate, but the money can only be exchanged from real to virtual. Meanwhile, Carl is optimistic his coalition will recover from the latest EVE upheaval. “It looks like CFC is winning, but we’re hoping now that all of our U.S. players are online, we’ll turn the tide,” Carl said. “Whatever happens, we’ll keep going. EVE is a universe full of grudges and constantly changing politics. If we were to lose, we’ll rebuild. Then, we’ll go back and start another war.”
‘Super Mario 3D World’ features eye-catching landscapes, thrilling surprises By Joe Fourhman Chicago Tribune
Nintendo has twisted the classic Super Mario Bros. concept in many different directions, continually reinventing the idea of running toward a flagpole and jumping on scowling mushrooms. Now available for Wii U, Nintendo brings us Super Mario 3D World, the latest in the line and substantially improved over 2012’s New Super Mario Bros. U. The 3D of the title does not refer to eye-popping visual effects that require funny glasses. It merely means Mario can explore a kingdom of turtles and fairies in three dimensions, much like many modern video games. The game looks fantastic on the high-definition Wii U.
There is little point in mentioning the storyline, because giant-dinosaurkidnaps-fairy-princesses has very little to do with anything. What is more interesting is that, for the first time in years, Princess Peach is one of the core playable characters. Peach joins Mario, his brother, Luigi, and pal Toad in a foray across gorgeous landscapes and through silly enemies. Each member of the quartet has subtle differences in speed and ability, and the game supports four players at the same time so your entire household can play. You might find multiplayer to be less fun than advertised, as the game’s viewpoint can be frustrating when everybody tries to run in a different direction. 3D World has the “bubble” feature
found in previous Mario games, where players can hide in an impervious bubble while another player forges through a difficult part, but, for my money, this is still a series that shines best as a singleplayer experience. And shine it does, through level after level of impressive challenges and thrilling surprises. The game is focused on never letting the player get bored. Not only is each level a unique obstacle course, but the game is also packed with wacky power-ups that dive-bomb you with new ways to play. The most prevalent power-up is a cat suit that lets Mario climb walls and lash out with feline claws. Other power-ups include a helicopter hat, a giant ice skate and a wholly unexplainable cherry that cre-
ates clones of your character. The brilliance of 3D World is that it is out to challenge you without punishing you. No level is too long. It saves your progress after every level. If you’re having trouble, the game will give you an ultimate power-up that will drastically increase your chances of getting through a section. For gamers who crave deeper risks and the subsequent rewards, 3D World has optional hidden stars and secret stamps in every level that require top skills to collect. This is a game meant to connect several dots of nostalgia and at the same time create a completed picture that is both beautiful and accessible.

FAMILY ‘Weight fate’ set by age 5? Study shows kids’ obesity risk starts before school age By Marilynn Marchione The Associated Press
hose efforts to fight obesity in schools? Think younger. A new study finds that much of a child’s “weight fate” is set by age 5, and that nearly half of kids who became obese by the eighth grade were already overweight when they started kindergarten. The prevalence of weight problems has long been known — about a third of U.S. kids are overweight or obese. But surprisingly little is known about which kids will develop obesity, and at what age. Researchers think there may be a window of opportunity to prevent it, and “we keep pushing our critical window earlier and earlier on,” said Solveig Cunningham, a scientist at Emory University. “A lot of the risk of obesity seems to be set, to some extent, really early in life.” She led the new study, which was published in this week’s New England Journal of Medicine and paid for by the federal government. It tracked a nationwide sample of more than 7,700
cent among others — Asians, Pacific Islanders and Native Americans and mixed-race children. By eighth grade, 17 percent of black children had become obese, compared to 14 percent of Hispanics and 10 percent of whites and children of other races.

Good kids can do bad things Question: Our 13-year-old son has had an iPod for the past three years. We’ve always made use of the parental restrictions to make sure that he could only access “clean” music, movies and websites. When I recently checked the device, however, I discovered that he’s been listening to the most awful and explicit rap music, some of which I would describe as pornographic. Apparently, he’s been able to hide this from us for about a year. We have taken away his iPod forever, grounded him until further notice, suspended his video game privileges and banned violent video games forever. He had us completely fooled! He’s an honor student, polite, calm John and completely obedient. He’s never given Rosemond us any big problems until now. Are we Living With being too harsh here? Children Answer: I agree that this is a serious betrayal of trust, but the important issue is whether or not your son is remorseful. If he feels bad about what he’s done, good. If, on the other hand, he’s defending himself or attempting to minimize the problem, then you have another problem on top of the betrayal. Since you didn’t mention reactions of that sort, I’m going to give your son the benefit of doubt and posit that this is an example of an otherwise good kid doing what otherwise good teen boys sometimes do — to wit, they conduct little experiments with being bad. Most of the experiments in question — and again, I’m talking about otherwise good kids — do not indicate that the child in question is about to go off the proverbial deep end. In other words, a good kid can do something really bad and still be a good kid who grows up to be a good person. A significant amount of concern would be warranted if your son was not remorseful, was trying to rationalize and otherwise talk his way out of this, was being more generally deceitful, and especially if he was beginning to engage in other problem behaviors with other problem kids. But in the absence of any of that, this is probably nothing more than a “glitch.” My highly speculative (but experienced) explanation: The “cool” kids probably listen to the disgusting garbage in question, and your son probably just wanted to experience some of what it’s like to be cool. (By the way, please make no mistake about it: I do not think listening to vulgar music is cool in the slightest. Putting junk media into one’s head is as unhealthy as putting junk food into one’s body … much, much more unhealthy, in fact.) As I said, if he’s not trying to become popular with the supposedly “cool” kids by engaging in other rebellious behavior then this is nothing to be worried about. For what it’s worth, I approve of the consequences you levied. I don’t think they’re too harsh at all. He did a wrong thing, you did several right things, and now it’s time for everyone to move on. One final word: You’ve learned, the hard way, that most of today’s kids can figure out how to get around parental controls. And if they can’t, they know someone who can. Today’s parents need much sharper eyes than their parents needed, for sure.

Science: Release of Mine: County data is important plans to hold hearing later this month Continued from Page A-1
centralized control, the irrigation hypothesis was replaced by other ideas about how communities in the region evolved. One idea was that a lack of material resources forced centralized trade and, thus, centralized bureaucracy. Over the last 15 years, however, new information has been recovered that is leading us to an understanding that the origins of complex economies were not as restricted in location or as external in cause; almost all of Mesopotamia was locally involved in the evolution of a more complex regional economy. This new view leads us to new models of how the change occurred, and these new models emphasize internal forces over external conditions. In turn, this new understanding allows us to more effectively compare the evolution of civilization across the planet, identifying key evolutionary phenomena shared among human societies globally. And here’s the crux of this story: In part, this discovery was made possible by one of the most closely held intelligence secrets of the Cold War. The Corona, Argon and Lanyard programs, initiated by the U.S. government in the 1950s, launched the first spy satellites. By the late 1960s, the systems were able to collect imagery with a ground resolution of less than six feet — good enough to identify small trees and large vehicles. The remarkable halfcentury-old images contain detail almost as good as state-of-the-art digital images now available from commercial satellites. In addition to the Cold War mission for which they were designed (as dramatized in the 1968 movie Ice Station Zebra), the space photographs incidentally recorded traces of past human settlements that have survived for 10,000 years — crucial evidence about how we came to live in the world we now inhabit. In the last few decades, we have lost much of this landscape to industrial agriculture and mechanized land-leveling. In 1995, a remarkable thing happened when this closely held secret of the government was partially declassified. The story of how this declassification occurred is only partly known. (See, for example, the work of authors Dwayne Day or Robert McDonald.) One undocumented story involves conversations between the archaeologist mentioned at the start of this piece, Adams, who was then secretary of the Smithsonian, and James Woolsey, then the U.S. director of central intelligence and a regent of the Smithsonian. Whatever the background of the declassification, the last Corona camera was given to the Smithsonian, a presidential order was signed on Feb. 22, 1995, and the imagery from the the missions was transferred to the National Archives. The United States Geological Survey took responsibility for releasing the data publicly. The declassified images were of immediate use to archaeologists working in the Near East because they preserved information about a lost landscape. For the first time, we were able to see the land surface before the destruction of the sites we sought to investigate. (See, for example, the Corona Atlas of the Near East, http://corona. cast.uark.edu, a project by colleague Jesse Casana of the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.) Archaeologists were, in some instances, able to visit the remains of the damaged sites and systematically recover traces of the past
cultures that inhabited the region thousands of years ago. What we’ve pieced together from excavation and from archaeological survey aided by the declassified images has helped revise our understanding of how our first complex societies and differentiated economies came to be. The declassified data from Corona have helped not just archaeologists; glaciologists, geologists and ecologists all have used the imagery to monitor how our world has changed. Unfortunately, for reasons that remain unclear, the initial declassification tapered off, despite its broad scientific success. Yet, in these days of post-Edward Snowden debate over sweeping government information collection, we should keep in mind the importance of declassification to scientists. This is not a proposal to declassify everyone’s metadata. But we are now well beyond space photography and into an era of Big Data (as discussed in past articles in this newspaper by the Santa Fe Institute’s Chris Wood and Simon DeDeo). While we can, and probably should, limit contemporary collection, part of the debate as we reassess our national surveillance policies should be a consideration of the future scientific utility of archival collections: Should we, in the future, release previously collected “legacy” data in a manner that both protects privacy and helps scientists understand the collective patterns of human interaction that govern our daily lives? If so, what should be the design of a curation policy that would balance privacy concerns and make full utility of what we have already gathered? This is a challenging problem that pits citizen privacy and limits on government against an almost infinite space of future security concerns and what will surely be vastly improved analytical methods leading to greater utility of legacy data. While its purpose remains unclear, we might surmise from the construction of the so-called Utah Data Center (a government facility possibly designed to curate the digital collections of our intelligence community) that the community understands the future utility of currently collected data. But given the benefits of declassification and our concerns for privacy, the questions of if, when and how to release this data are important to us all. Asking these questions is in keeping with the Open Government Initiative signed by President Barack Obama on the first day of his administration. We don’t yet know what shape an overall declassification policy should take, but we do know this: The data we collect now, on ourselves, will provide the digital archaeologists and historians of the future a window into how we operate as a society. Toward that gift — the understanding of the drivers of change in human society — we can make a direct contribution by taking into account the importance of future public research on legacy intelligence collections. Eric Rupley is an anthropological archaeologist at the Santa Fe Institute and a doctoral candidate at the University of Michigan’s Museum of Anthropology. His research analyzes crosscultural, region-scale data on past human activities and settlement systems to explore how new forms of social organization emerge.

Continued from Page A-1 bulk water services for the project on Waldo Canyon Road,” said a Dec. 20 letter from county utilities staff member Paul Casaus. The proposed basalt mine would have two 10,000-gallon water tanks, one for dust control and one in case of fire. A 5,000-gallon diesel fuel tank also would be on site, along with a mobile rock processing and crushing plant, Hooper said. Community members, organized as the Rural Conservation Alliance, fought a 2012 application to the New Mexico state engineer by Rockology and Buena Vista Estates to move water rights from irrigation to sand and gravel washing. The mine wouldn’t be visible from Interstate 25, but Hooper concedes there’s no way to completely hide a large operation from all viewpoints. “It will be visible from County Road 57 [Waldo Canyon Road] and somewhat visible for areas from the south,” he said. Senior and other residents say it would be more than a little visible, and that’s not their only concern. Senior said the mine would operate after dark during prime construction periods and the lights from the operation would affect the prized dark skies in the area. “One of reason I’m out here is for the dark skies,” said Senior, who works out of her home as vice president of a technology research company. “People in Cerrillos will be subjected to blasting, grinding and night lights.” The potential for dust to blow off the stockpiled dirt with the frequent winds that sweep across the mesa is another problem, she said. Ross Lockridge and his wife, Ann Murray, stood on Waldo Canyon Road recently, looking across a canyon to the proposed mine site. The couple have lived and worked as artists and craftsmen in Cerrillos for 40 years and were outspoken critics of the proposed mine when Hooper and Naumburg proposed it the first time six years ago. They said the view from Waldo Canyon Road is important because it could serve as the entrance to an area that could be a national monument one day. The New Mexico Heritage Preservation Alliance, a nonprofit based in Santa Fe that’s devoted to protecting New Mexico’s cultural and environmental heritage, selected La Bajada Mesa and escarpment in 2003 as one of the state’s most endangered places.

Cultural groups deserve city aid M any cultural nonprofits in Santa Fe have struggled to survive for years, operating with unsustainable business models that rely on individual contributions, earned income and grants. While these sources will continue to be important, it is extremely difficult to find core support for daily operations. Interestingly, a benchmark survey I completed in 2012 for Mayor David Coss revealed that Santa Fe is the only major city in New Mexico that does not provide an ongoing stream of municipal support for its primary cultural nonprofits. In other New Mexico cities, they receive between 30 percent and 80 percent of their base operational support, in the form of buildings, staff salaries, utilities or cash. In return, the cultural nonprofits provide desired services and programs for residents as well as visitors. As our cultural organizations face an increasingly challenging climate, isn’t it time for the city of Santa Fe to step up and help? Let’s keep our anchor cultural institutions thriving!

In denial A central theme of the recent book Inferno by Dan Brown is human overpopulation worldwide. The book pointedly makes a reader aware of
overpopulation and its consequences on our world. Most of the current human population of 7 billion was attained via geometric growth since 1930, a mere 85 years. During that interval, scientists and engineers, encouraged by economists, politicians and business, have steadfastly worked to eliminate hunger, poverty and diseases — the historic checks on population growth. Their efforts were positive feedback supporting continued growth, and humanity continues chasing poverty and hunger. Self-serving religions simultaneously compounded the problem by forbidding contraception.
Media bring almost daily public attention to current and projected dire consequences of overpopulation, but few are moved to attention and action. Denial abounds. Most importantly, people in responsible positions and capable of comprehension — scientists, engineers, economists, politicians — are not moved to promote action to arrest, even reverse, overpopulation. Brown, in Inferno, presents an interesting, plausible approach to accomplishing that before apocalyptic collapse of humanity and its biosphere occurs. Glen Smerage

he annual hunt and slaughter of hundreds of dolphins in the Japanese village of Taiji has begun, and China’s growing ranks of animal lovers aren’t happy about it. Taking their cue from the Oscarwinning 2009 documentary The Cove, a blood-soaked account of the massacre, the Chinese have taken to posting images, video and — if they’re news editors — stories and editorials about the event. “Japan Stages Bloody ‘Dolphin Bay’ Hunt: Several Hundred Trapped Dolphins Face Massacre,” reads one representative headline, as posted to a video site run by People’s Daily, the official, self-described mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party. Enthusiasm for this story owes much to rising levels of anti-Japanese sentiment in China, of course, and a concerted effort by the Chinese government to scrape off some of the shine from Japan’s global image. Footage of Japanese fishermen slaughtering the aquatic equivalent of Bambi helps the regime’s cause immensely. Nonetheless, it would be a mistake to ascribe Chinese outrage over the Taiji slaughter to politics alone. In recent years, there’s been a noticeable shift in Chinese attitudes — at least in newspapers, on microblogs and, at the official level, in Beijing — toward the protection of endangered, or just plain cute, species. State-controlled Chinese news media outlets, for instance, have heavily covered recent Chinese and international crackdowns on the poaching of elephants and the sale of their tusks in Hong Kong and China — the latter the world’s largest market for illicit ivory. Most notable was the intensive news media coverage of the Jan. 6 destruction — using what looked like wood chippers — of more than 6 tons
of confiscated ivory in Dongguan, China. The spectacle was held publicly in order to “demonstrate the country’s determination to discourage illegal ivory trade, protect wildlife and raise public awareness,” wrote Xinhua, the state newswire, in a photo essay capturing the event. No doubt the intended audience was international as well as domestic. The slaughter and poaching of favored animals — endangered or not (and the elephants certainly are) — is a sure way to be labeled “inhumane” by developed Western countries, animal activists and pet owners. China knows this sting better than most, in part due to its devastating trade in shark fins for human consumption, an affinity for meats that others prefer as cute pets, and the extensive use of endangered species (and nonendangered species) in the practice of traditional Chinese medicine. Significantly, Chinese attitudes toward these affronts to non-Chinese sensibilities are changing rapidly, aided by China’s transformation from an agrarian culture that views animals in utilitarian terms to one in which a burgeoning middle class embraces pet ownership and transforms the most expensive dogs into status symbols. (Between 2001 and 2007, Beijingers expanded the city’s pet dog population from 100,000 to 1.5 million.) Exposing animal cruelty is a popular topic in Chinese newspapers, excitedly driving comments and microblog posts. Though Chinese attitudes toward acts as different as finning sharks and extracting ivory from elephants naturally vary, the overall tenor of online discussion tends — predictably — toward outrage. Take, for example, a Jan. 6 tweet to Sina Weibo by the official account of the Southern Metropolitan Daily, an independent-minded newspaper in Guangzhou, a

city renowned (or notorious) for its live exotic animal markets. The paper posted graphic images of ivory-driven elephant slaughter in Africa and wrote: “Ivory constitutes one-third of a skull, and to keep it intact most poachers will cut it off entirely! Even if the elephant is pregnant the poachers won’t let it slip by! Human greed has claimed the lives of 1 million elephants. Save the elephants, say no to ivory!” The tweet has been forwarded (or retweeted, in Twitter terms) more than 56,000 times — a remarkably strong show of support, especially at a time when Sina Weibo is losing cachet and users. Has growing Chinese public outrage had any impact on the trade in species, endangered or no? Last year, public outrage at bear bile extraction forced a company that specialized in the practice to withdraw its initial public offering, while growing public awareness of the negative consequences of shark finning (combined with a crackdown on shark fin-loving corrupt Chinese officials) does appear to have contributed to a decline in the reprehensible practice. Nevertheless, old habits and mindsets are difficult to change. Earlier this week, two intrepid Hong Kong investigators uncovered a mainland China slaughterhouse devoted to the illegal harvesting of endangered whale sharks in settings as horrific as anything documented in The Cove. Based on the Chinese-language website maintained by the slaughterhouse, it seems obvious that the market for its brutally acquired fins was, in fact, Chinese.

inally, a tax reform proposal that Democrats and Republicans in Congress can rally behind. Legislation in the House and Senate, if passed, would remove nonprofit status from professional sports leagues such as the National Football League and the National Hockey League. The bills were introduced last month, just in time for the Super Bowl hoopla. This should be a slam dunk, to introduce a sports metaphor. Of course, it’s not. This legislation has been knocked down in the past. Here’s why it make sense now — first of all, big sports leagues are enormously profitable. They should pay taxes on those profits. Individual teams pay taxes, but the leagues that run the show are exempt. As Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, was quoted as saying when he introduced the Properly Reducing Overexemptions (PRO) Sports Act, “in reality, the NFL and the NHL are for-profit businesses, and they should be taxed as such. They are not charities nor are they traditional trade organizations like local chambers of commerce.” His legislation is identical to legislation introduced last fall by Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla. Taxing the leagues — which generate revenue in the billions — would increase federal revenue by $109 million over the next 10 years. The Joint Committee on Taxation has estimated that nonprofit status is worth about $10 million annually to major sports leagues. These tax breaks come on top of taxpayer-financed stadiums and practice fields — essentially gifts of billions to rich owners. As writer Gregg Easterbrook put it in a September article in the Atlantic magazine: “Pro-football coaches talk about accountability and self-reliance, yet pro-football owners routinely binge on giveaways and handouts.” The league’s nonprofit status can be traced back to the 1960s, after Congress granted antitrust waivers; then, the leagues were the National Football League and the American Football League. That exemption allowed the leagues to merge, put together a common draft and negotiate television rights. Because of the exemption, the league thrives. Yet Congress — and state Legislatures and cities that decide to fund luxury stadiums on the backs of taxpayers — continue to let the NFL alone, as well as other professional sports leagues for hockey, golf’s PGA tour and the ATP world tour in Tennis (the NBA, by the way, is forprofit). Congress can change all this, of course, by revoking the nonprofit status of professional sports leagues. Imagine, an NFL that paid its share of taxes. The legislation is in the hopper, and good for Chaffetz and Coburn (who is retiring at the end of this congressional session). Other legislators should get behind them. Pass legislation that stops public giveaways to billionaires — it’s the perfect bipartisan issue.
The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Feb. 3, 1914: The first battle in the war on “high taxes” has been won by the taxpayers. Judge E.C. Abbott gave two decisions late yesterday, one declaring that eight mills must be stricken from the tax roll on the ground that they are “erroneous” and the other granting $200 exemption to the heads of families from the third of their assessed property value instead of allowing the assessor to deduct it from the total and divide the balance by three. The decisions affect this county and, in fact, the other two counties in this judicial district — Rio Arriba and San Juan. Feb. 3, 1964: District Court Judge Samuel Z. Montoya announced this morning that he will call a grand jury to look into the traffic in marijuana in Santa Fe. He said that a grand jury would be presented with the evidence gathered against the 24 persons arrested in the raid to see if jurors want to order them held for District Court action. This would eliminate a preliminary hearing before a justice of the peace. Three have already been freed on bond over the weekend. One of the suspected marijuana pushers arrested in Saturday morning raids of local homes figured in another important Santa Fe narcotics case in 1957. Feb. 3, 1989: The owner of the Dairy Queen at the DeVargas Center was fined $9,000 for hiring undocumented Canadian workers to sell ice cream. The sanctions against the Dairy Queen are the first made by the INS in Santa Fe since the U.S. Congress adopted the new Immigration Reform and Control Act in late 1986.

Newsmakers J.K. Rowling says ‘Potter’ ending may be wrong
LONDON — Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is having second thoughts about having ended the series with heroine Hermione paired up romantically with Ron. The hugely successful author tells Wonderland magazine she chose the red-haired Ron for Hermione for very personal reasons having little to do with literature. She told the magazine she “wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment” and said the couple might eventually need relationship counseling.
Allen: Farrow claims ‘untrue’ and ‘disgraceful’
NEW YORK — Woody Allen called Dylan Farrow’s allegations of child molestation “untrue and disgraceful” a day after Farrow renewed claims dating back to Allen’s tempestuous relationship with actress Mia Farrow in the early 1990s. Allen’s publicist said that Allen has read Dylan Farrow’s open-letter, published online by The New York Times, claiming she was sexually assaulted by her then adoptive father as a 7-year-old.

SUPER BOWL XLVIII SEAHAWKS 43, BRONCOS 8
SEAHAWKS DOMINATE FROM BEGINNING TO END TO CAPTURE THEIR FIRST NFL TITLE
Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson hoists the Lombardi Trophy Sunday after the Seahawks defeated the Broncos 43-8 to win their first Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. ‘We been relentless all season. … At the end of the day, you want to play your best football, and that is what we did today,’ Wilson said.

Jitters get better of Manning, Broncos By Arnie Stapleton
The Associated Press
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — All those records, all for naught. Peyton Manning couldn’t cap the greatest season any NFL quarterback ever had or secure his legacy as the best quarterback in history because his Denver Broncos came down with a case of the yips Sunday night. They lost to Seattle in the Super Bowl 43-8 by falling behind right from the start and never recovering. The bumbling Broncos trailed before Manning ever got his hands on the ball because Manny Ramirez’s bad snap went for a safety 12 seconds into the game. “It was a crazy start,” Manning said, “not the way you expect to start the game.” It only got worse for the league’s most prolific point producers, who scored 606 of them in the regular seaso, then dominated the AFC in the playoffs but mustered only Demaryius Thomas’ 14-yard touchdown catch on the final play of the third quarter at MetLife Stadium. “We couldn’t get it to swing, man,” left tackle Chris Clark said. “We tried, but they just played better than we did today. It didn’t shift. We didn’t play Broncos football today. When you got a good thing going, you want to finish it off and we didn’t do that today.” Dominated in every way, the Broncos (15-4) trudged

The Associated Press
AST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The Seattle Seahawks’ mantra all season was to make each day a championship day. They made Super Bowl Sunday the best day of all with one of the greatest performances in an NFL title game — sparked by a defense that ranks among the best ever. The Seahawks won their first Super Bowl crown in overpowering fashion, punishing Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos 43-8. That masterful defense, the NFL’s stingiest, never let the five-time MVP get going, disarming the highestscoring offense in league history. Seattle (16-3) was too quick, too physical and just too good for Denver, and that was true in all areas. What was hyped as a classic matchup between an unstoppable offense and a miserly defense turned into a rout. “We been relentless all season,” quarterback Russell Wilson said. “Having that mentality of having a championship day every day. At the end of the day, you want to play your best football, and that is what we did today.” Punctuating Seattle’s dominance were a 69-yard interception return touchdown by linebacker Malcolm Smith to make it 22-0, and Percy Harvin’s sensational 87-yard kickoff runback to open the second half. Smith was the game’s MVP, the first defender in 11 years to win the award. When the Seahawks, up by 29 points, forced a Denver punt early in the third quarter, the 12th Man — and there were legions of them in MetLife Stadium — began chanting “L-O-B, L-O-B.”

With Kirk on the mend, Aget clocks in more game time By Will Webber
The New Mexican
Construction woes in Sochi Accommodations for nonathletes threaten to become a major embarrassment for Olympic organizers as some media hotels remain unfinished. Page B-3
The education of University of New Mexico men’s basketball player Obij Aget has kicked into hyperdrive thanks to Alex Kirk’s ailing left leg. The 7-foot freshman from Sudan by way of La Porte, Ind., has been the primary fill-in for Kirk since an undisclosed shin injury sent the Los Alamos High graduate to the bench for a bit of rest. Kirk returned to action in Saturday’s rout of visiting San Jose
State in The Pit. Before that, Aget started his first two games when Kirk was wearing a walking boot. While it’s unreasonable to expect Aget to fill the 15-point, 9-rebound average Kirk has had this season, Lobos head coach Craig Neal did say that there are certain expectations for what Aget is required to do when he does get onto the floor. In that respect, there’s no better place to prepare him than in the Rudy Davalos Center, the Lobos’ practice facility on the south side

Rondo made 9 of Celtics 96 11 shots and Magic 89 finished with season highs of 19 points and 10 assists while helping Boston end a four-game losing streak with a 96-89 victory over the Orlando Magic on Sunday. “We didn’t stop pushing the pace even though we had the lead,” Rondo said. “We finally finished a game strong. They made a run at it, but at the end of the day we still got some stops when we needed and made the plays.” Boston entered Sunday winless in six games since Rondo’s return last month after missing nearly a year with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. He sat out the second of back-to-back games earlier in the week and was fresh enough at the end Sunday to help the Celtics hold off a late push by the Magic.

“You just feel like you’re really under control the way he was playing late,” Boston coach Brad Stevens said. Jared Sullinger scored seven of his 21 points in the fourth quarter for the Celtics, who let a 12-point lead slip to one in the final period before pulling away at the end. Brandon Bass had 19 points
and nine rebounds, and Avery Bradley scored 17 in his return after missing five games with a sprained ankle. Jeff Green was the only Boston starter not to score in double figures as the Celtics won for the third time in four games against the Magic, who have lost four of five overall and 11 straight on the road.
Arron Afflalo had 18 points and Nikola Vucevic finished with 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Magic. Glen Davis had 15 points, Tobias Harris scored 13 and Victor Oladipo had 12 points as all five Orlando starters scored in double figures. But the Magic couldn’t stop Rondo, who had six assists in the fourth quarter. “We stuck to our principles and what we wanted to do. He just came through for his team,” Davis said. The only game on the NBA schedule Sunday featured two of the league’s bottom teams. Orlando, which has just three road wins this season, rallied after making a push in the fourth quarter. The Magic went without a field goal in the fourth quarter until Maurice Harkless’ layup cut Boston’s lead to 75-68 with 9:01 left to play. E’Twaun Moore and Davis added layups during an 10-2 run that pulled the Magic within 77-76 on a pair of free throws by Kyle O’Quinn with 6:11 left to play.
Time: Aget logged 14 minutes vs. San Jose Continued from Page B-1 of The Pit. “Well, if you have to go into practice every day and play against Alex Kirk, you’re going to get better,” Neal said. “That’s what O has had to do. He’s [Kirk] has been very helpful and so has [Cameron Bairstow] with Obij. And Obij has to deal with Cullen [Neal] telling him where to go all the time because they’re roommates and best friends. Cullen knows where he should be, and he gets kind of confused once in a while, but Alex has been a big part of his development because he has to play against him every day.” Aget logged a career-high 23 minutes in a recent game at Utah State, then had 14 minutes in Saturday’s win over San Jose State. As Kirk continues to mend, Neal said Aget will likely continue to get minutes. Same, too, for seldom-used forward Merv Lindsay. Together, the pair has seen increased minutes as Neal’s offense adjusts to Kirk’s status. “Yeah it sucked being hurt, but giving Obij those minutes and those starts, and having Merv come off, that’s huge for players,” Kirk said. “I think that just builds their confidence to where, let’s say if I get in foul trouble down the road, we can throw Big-O in at any moment now. We know he can win a ball game — maybe not by himself, but he can make some stops, get some rebounds on the defensive end.”
More time coming Neal is taking his time making time for Alex Kirk. He said he will meet with his starting center and team trainers Monday to assess Kirk’s status. Getting 19 minutes in Saturday’s game, Kirk will likely get no more than 25 minutes on Wednesday against Wyoming. “Depending on what the doctors say, they’ll give me the green light on what to do with that,” Neal said. “But it will all be dependent on what the doctors and the trainers say.”
Shorthanded pokes? Wyoming may be without the services of starting guard Josh Adams when it visits The Pit on Wednesday. Adams scored 19 points with a careerhigh eight assists in a win over Utah State on Saturday, but he was ejected with 5:37 left when he appeared to punch the Aggies’ Spencer Butterfield as the two had an altercation near the sideline. Mountain West Conference officials will assess the situation, but the standard procedure generally calls for a one-game suspension if a player is involved in a fight. Adams was assessed a flagrant 2 technical foul. “The decision’s out of our hands,” said Wyoming assistant coach Jeremy Shyatt. “I think it’s something the league office needs to look at. I’m sure they’ve been through this before, and they’ll give a full assessment.” Adams is second on the team in scoring, averaging 12.1 points per game with a teamleading 3.0 assists average.
Unexpected turnaround Nevada continues to be the surprise of the Mountain West. At 12-10 overall, they are 7-2 in the league, sitting alone in third place behind unbeaten San Diego State and the Lobos. The Wolf Pack debuted in the MWC last season by finishing last, finishing 12-19 and 3-13. Their road gets considerably tougher the back half of the conference schedule. It starts next week with consecutive road games at Utah State and San Diego State. They close the regular season by facing UNM twice, plus Boise State and UNLV, in their final six games.
What do they know? The media picked New Mexico to win the MWC in the preseason. Everyone knows that. At the midway point, however, only one
team — winless San Jose State — is in the spot it was picked to finish in. At 0-10 in league play, San Jose State sits alone in last, right where the media thought it would be. Conference frontrunner San Diego State was picked fourth; UNLV and Boise State tied for second behind UNM. The biggest disappointment so far is Utah State. Tied for ninth at 2-7, the Aggies were picked fifth.
Rude awakenings The recent seismic shifts in college sports have put a new look on the MWC in recent years. The league has added five schools the last few years, all of them purged from the Western Athletic Conference. While some have enjoyed measured success in other sports, it hasn’t been as easy in basketball. The latest additions — San Jose State and Utah State this year; Fresno State and Nevada last season — have struggled to keep up on the hardwood. Save for Nevada’s remarkable turnaround this year, the bottom three teams in the current standings are all former WAC schools. It comes as no surprise to Craig Neal. “It’s a tough situation coming into our league,” he said. “I think the WAC teams are finding that out.”
Green light — with a catch Neal has no problem with his players firing away. What he does have an issue with is something Nick Banyard did during the Lobos’ recent game at Utah State. Fresh off the bench, Banyard launched a wide-open 3-point attempt from the top of the key that missed. Neal quickly sent in a substitute for the backup forward. “All my players are allowed to take good shots, but all my players aren’t allowed to take shots when they just checked in the game the first five seconds they’re in,” Neal said. He added that Banyard is now well educated in protocol out on the floor.
Construction crunch threatens to hamper Games By John Pye
The Associated Press
KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia — Construction workers ignored the blaring alarm in Gorki Plaza on Sunday, tuning out the loud hoot-hoot-hoot and automated voice that urged guests to evacuate. That was a fire drill — a requirement ahead of building approval — but alarm bells of a more figurative kind are ringing louder and louder for the organizers of the Sochi Olympics. It’s almost impossible to pin down how many hotels will be finished ahead of the Winter Games, which officially open Friday. Gorki Plaza was always supposed to be a hive of activity, an accommodation and transport hub for thousands of visitors to Olympic venues in the mountains above Sochi. It just wasn’t supposed to be a hive of building activity this late. And that has Olympic leaders worried. IOC President Thomas Bach was given a status update on accommodation by local organizers at an executive board meeting Sunday. “There is a great confidence and great satisfaction with what we have seen here,”
Bach said. “Of course … always before the games, we have some issues to be addressed. We received information that this will be addressed, but in general, for the athletes, the stage is set for great performances, both with regards to the villages and with regards to the sports facilities.” But the accommodation situation for nonathletes threatened to become a major embarrassment for organizers when some Olympic-accredited people were turned away in recent days from unfinished hotels, or checked into unfinished rooms. Organizers estimate that thousands of media will be arriving in Sochi on Monday. About 11,000 overall are expected to be covering Russia’s first Winter Games. Spectators are expected to flood in later in the week. IOC spokesman Mark Adams conceded there were hotels that weren’t finished. “That doesn’t mean they’re empty shells with no beds or whatever,” he said, adding that 41,000 rooms were being provided for the Sochi Games and, of those, 20,000 were brand new. “I also understand not a single person has gone without a room,” he said. “All round, I think I can assure you that people
will get the rooms they need.” Local organizers said Saturday that only six of the nine media hotels in the mountain cluster were finished, and they gave a timetable Sunday for others to be opened this week. “Ninety-seven percent of these rooms are already welcoming guests, and the remainder are currently undergoing final testing before being available for visitors before the games starts,” organizers said. Oleg Soloshchansky, president of the Inteco company responsible for construction of buildings at “Level +960” above Gorki Plaza, was confident the work would be finished on the hotels allocated for the Olympics. “The hotels are ready from 90 to 100 percent,” he told The Associated Press as he surveyed a construction zone where huge excavating machines were digging and scraping the muddy ground. Soloshchansky attributed the problems to a 10-day delay because of rain. In the meantime, he’s getting daily inspection visits from the IOC, the construction ministry and the local organizing committee. There has also been a helicopter hovering to take images to map progress.

Kevin Stadler claims Phoenix Open by 1 shot By John Nicholson The Associated Press
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Kevin Stadler won the Phoenix Open on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title when playing partner Bubba Watson missed a 5-footer for par on the final hole. Stadler, the 33-year-old son of PGA Tour winner Craig Stadler, closed with a 3-under 68 for a one-stroke victory over Watson and Canadian Graham DeLaet. Stadler won in his 239th PGA Tour start, earning a spot in the Masters — a tournament his father won in 1982. The Stadlers are the ninth father-son winners in tour history. Stadler finished at 16-under 268 at TPC Scottsdale, his home course. Raised in Colorado, he played in Denver Broncos colors, wearing an orange shirt and blue pants and hat. Watson shot a 71, and DeLaet had a 65. After Stadler and Watson each saved par after hitting into the water on the par-5 15th, Stadler tied Watson for the lead with a par on the par-3 16th hole. Watson hit into the front left bunker on the stadium hole and his 6-footer for par slid by the
left side. They each twoputted for birdie from 90 feet — Watson holing out from 18 feet and Kevin Stadler from Stadler 5 — after driving the green on the 347-yard hole. Stadler hit a 344-yard drive on the par-4 18th and hit his 110-yard approach to the back right pin to 10 feet. Watson hit a 342-yard drive into the right rough and hammered his second from 120 yards over the green and into the spectators seated on a hill. Watson bladed his shot from the trampled rough into the bank next to the green and it ran 5 feet past the hole. After Stadler missed his birdie try and tapped in for par, Watson’s par try slid by the left side to end the tournament. Stadler’s previous biggest win was in Australia in the European Tour’s 2006 Johnnie Walker Classic. In that event, he hit a 3-iron to a foot for an eagle on the final hole for a two-stroke victory. He also won the Argentine Open that winter and has four Nationwide Tour wins.

Smith named Super Bowl MVP By Howard Fendrich The Associated Press
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Standing near his locker, the one where two footballs were tucked away for safekeeping, Seattle Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith repeated the word “fortunate” over and over again. The third player at his position in NFL history to earn Super Bowl MVP honors, he spoke about feeling “fortunate to be a part of it” and “fortunate to get opportunities.” Truth is, the Seahawks were the lucky ones. Because even though Smith was only a seventh-round draft pick, a guy who was not supposed to be a starter this season, he was always ready when called upon. Never more so than Sunday night, when
Smith returned an interception of regular-season MVP Peyton Manning 69 yards for a touchdown in the first half, recovered a fumble in the second half, and was part of a dominating defensive performance that helped Seattle beat the Denver Broncos 43-8 for the championship. “He’s one of the guys that plays with a chip on his shoulder,” fellow linebacker K.J. Wright said. “He almost didn’t get drafted. For him to come in, start from the bottom and work his way up to Super Bowl MVP, it shows how much character he has, how resilient he is.” Sure is. And it was rather appropriate that a member of Seattle’s league-leading “D” would be the MVP of the Super Bowl, considering the way the Seahawks shut down Manning and Denver’s record-breaking offense, forcing four turnovers
and holding the Broncos scoreless until the last play of the third quarter. Smith joined Ray Lewis of Baltimore in 2001, and Chuck Howley of Dallas in 1971 as the only linebackers to be picked as the top player in a Super Bowl. Only eight of 48 Super Bowls have ended with someone who plays defense getting the honor; the last example was Tampa Bay Buccaneers free safety Dexter Jackson in 2003. And Smith, who is 24, is the fourth-youngest Super Bowl MVP. His older brother, Steve, was a wide receiver on the New York Giants’ 2008 Super Bowl title team and was at Sunday’s game. “I just told him to enjoy the moment, go out before pregame and take some pictures and really enjoy it,” Steve said, “because you never know when
it could end and you could never be back again.” Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and safety Earl Thomas were first-team All-Pro selections this season, and both finished among the top five vote-getters for NFL Defensive Player of the Year. Safety Kam Chancellor was a second-team All-Pro choice. That trio of defensive backs is part of a talented secondary known as the “Legion of Boom,” and guys such as Smith often get overshadowed. “You might have been overlooked,” Malcolm Smith said, explaining that he’s derived motivation from snubs such as not being invited to the NFL draft combine for top prospects coming out of college. “You might feel like you can make plays and never got the opportunity.”

beating Chicago’s Devin Hester’s kickoff return to open the 2007 game — against Manning’s Colts. That one ended much better for Manning as Indianapolis won the championship. This one was a fiasco throughout. Steven Hauschka, who missed only 2 of 40 field goals entering the game, made a 31-yarder for 5-0 and a 33-yarder for 8-0 after Doug Baldwin toasted 15-year veteran cornerback Champ Bailey, in his first Super Bowl, for 37 yards on third down. Then the Seahawks began scoring touchdowns. Manning’s third-down pass to Julius Thomas sailed way too high and directly to safety Kam Chancellor, giving the Seahawks the ball at Denver’s 37. Harvin, finally healthy after a virtually wasted first season in Seattle, sparked the short drive with a 15-yard burst, and a third-down pass interference call on Tony Carter gave Seattle the ball at the 1. Marshawn Lynch scored to make it 15-0. Then Smith, with a play emblematic of the best defense the NFL has seen in years, made his second huge play in two weeks. Cliff Avril got to Manning’s arm as he was throwing, the ball fluttered directly to Smith, who took off down the left sideline for a 69-yard interception TD. Manning trudged to the sideline, a look of disgust on his face. That look didn’t improve when, after a drive to the Seattle 19, his fourth-down pass was tipped by Chris Clemons and fell harmlessly to the Meadowlands turf. So did Denver’s reputation as an unstoppable force.

On the interception, he said, his teammates had good coverage behind him, and he could see Manning focusing on the other side of the field until pressure forced him to look to his right. “The speed of the game, the way we attack, there’s just opportunities all over the field,” Smith said of the Seahawks defense. It was the longest Super Bowl interception return for a touchdown since Tracy Porter’s 74-yarder late in the fourth quarter four years ago to clinch the title for the New Orleans Saints against the Indianapolis Colts. The quarterback he picked off? Manning.
This year’s game was over much sooner. Smith dunked the ball over the upright in celebration, and Seattle led 22-0 with 3:21 left in the half. Manning could only shake his head on the sideline. “We knew if we could consistently put pressure on them, consistently get hits on them, we could affect the game,” Avril said. They certainly did. “There is a reason why they were the No. 1 team in defense during the season,” Broncos coach John Fox said. “Give them credit. They had a lot to do with it — with a combination of coverage and rush.”

One of the most common mistakes taxpayers make is selecting the wrong filing status. A short lesson on filing statuses could help ensure you pay only what you owe in taxes and get back the tax refund you’re due. If it has been a while since you filled out a tax form using a pen, you might have forgotten about the tax rate schedule. This schedule outlines how taxes are applied based on filing status. The points at which you move from one tax bracket to the next one vary based on your filing status. If you select the wrong filing status, you very likely will not be taxed accurately because the moves to higher tax brackets are prompted by different amounts for each filing status. Also, because the amount of the standard deduction is different for each filing status, selecting the wrong one could result in paying taxes on more income than you’re required.
single Those who are not married may file as single. Your marital status on Dec. 31 of the year for which you are filing your tax return determines your filing status. This means taxpayers who are not divorced on Dec. 31 must continue to use one of the filing statuses for married couples, which are generally married filing jointly and married filing separately. In some cases, married and single individuals may be able to file as head of household.
Head of household with a qualifying person Married and single taxpayers can sometimes qualify to file as head of household when certain conditions are met: · You are either single or considered unmarried for tax purposes · Paid more than half the cost of keeping up your home · Had a qualifying dependent living in your home more than half of the year o If the qualifying dependent is your parent, the requirement to have lived with you is waived – which could really help out those in the sandwich generation. Divorced taxpayers who do not qualify to use the head of household status will file as single. Qualifying widow(er) with a dependent child For up to two years after a spouse’s death, the widow(er) may continue to use the married filing jointly tax rate by filing as a qualified widow(er) with a dependent child, as long as the taxpayer hasn’t remarried. Guessing what your filing status is or assuming it is the same as last year could cost you now or catch up to you and cost you later, especially if your marital status has changed. If you have questions about your filing status, or any other tax issue, contact a tax professional.

1 Each tax situation is different and not everyone will receive a refund. In a 2013 H&R Block study of tax returns by people who did their own taxes, nearly half had differences, and approximately 40% of people with differences were entitled to a larger refund. OBTP#B13696 ©2013 HRB Tax Group, Inc.

Married filing jointly Generally, married taxpayers file a joint return because of the added tax benefits, including eligibility for certain credits. Also, if your spouse died in the tax year for which you are filing, you can likely file as married filing jointly. Married filing separately Filing separately can sometimes lower a tax bill. For example, if one of the spouses has low income and high medical bills, it could work in their favor to file separately to claim these expenses as itemized deductions. This is because their spouse’s income could make it difficult to reach the threshold for claiming medical expenses.

life changes change Tax filing sTaTus
‘It’s complicated’ No, “it’s complicated” isn’t a filing status, but certain big life changes can make it difficult to determine your correct filing status. In fact, some people find themselves eligible for more than one status. A common example is when taxpayers with children are in the process of getting a divorce or have separated. Depending on the specifics of their situation, parents who are divorcing or separated may be eligible to file under three filing statuses: married filing jointly, married filing separately or head of household with qualifying person. Another time this would generally apply would be when single taxpayers with a child, or other qualifying relative, may be able to file as either single or head of household. So, selecting the correct status is very, very important. To help you determine which is right for you, following are the IRS filing statuses with some information about each one.

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.

Brother abuses position as trustee Dear Annie: Both of my parents recently died, and my younger brother was named trustee of their trust. My parents’ home represents the majority of the trust, although it was not on the list of assets. Instead, my brother and his wife are claiming the home as compensation for time they spent with the folks in their last years. This was the first time my siblings and I were notified of this abuse of his position. My brother refuses to provide any information to the beneficiaries. He communicates in generalities and platitudes, refusing to answer our concerns or return phone calls and emails. What can we do? If we contest the trust, we are out of it. Do we hire an attorney to go after him? Do we lien the house? How do we handle this blatant abuse of his position for his own gain? — Sad in Kansas Dear Kansas: The details of the trust may make it impossible for you to get the results you want, but we have no way of counseling you from here. Please talk to a lawyer who can investigate what action you could take. And then decide whether you want a relationship with your brother, because taking him to court will likely create a permanent estrangement. Money isn’t everything. If he truly did spend more time caring for your parents than the rest of you, he may deserve more than you think. Dear Annie: My spouse and I choose to abstain from alcohol. We don’t do this because we think we are better than others. It is a personal decision based on how alcohol has inflicted hurt on people we love. We have seen families abuse each other when drinking and have had friends and family killed in drunken driving accidents. But it pains us to see how some family members react to our convictions. Over the years, they have dis-
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH A child or loved one might be quite endearing, yet you will be distracted by an associate who is being inordinately challenging at this moment. Tonight: Go along with a suggestion. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH You’ll want to focus on a personal matter, but right now, day-to-day living takes priority. You might be sitting on some anger. Tonight: Take a walk. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You might want to think twice before deciding what to do and when to do it. You won’t be able to stop your mind from racing. Tonight: Visit a child or someone who is childlike, and you will have a ball.

Is there anything we can do? — Sober but Sad Dear Sober: We agree that alcohol can be very destructive. However, by broadcasting your sobriety as well as your disapproval, you come across as scolds, and the drinking members of your family choose not to be criticized, even tacitly.

She called her other grandfather “Oxygen Grandpa” because he needed the aid of an oxygen tank. Since I liked my lateday martini, I was called the Olive Grandpa. — Homosassa, Fla.
