As mayor, Dimas says, he’d return focus to services

Former magistrate, Santa Fe police officer would strive to avoid ‘fringe’ issues if elected

Proponents of using a state endowment to pay for early childhood education programs unveiled a study Tuesday that says the change would be a safe and wise investment. Commissioned by St. Joseph Community Health, the study says pouring more money into early childhood education would decrease the state’s infant death rate, lead to more high school graduates and strengthen New Mexico’s economy because better educated people would have greater earning power. All of this can be done without eroding the source of the money, the $12 billion Land Grant Permanent Fund, said Vicente Feliciano of Advantage Business Consulting, a Puerto Rico company that authored the study. By his projections, the endowment would continue to grow, even with 1.5 percent in additional expenditures for early childhood education. Spending the money to help infants and toddlers get the right start in life is critical, Feliciano said in a news conference at the state Capitol. “New Mexico is facing a crisis in early childhood development,” he said.

Dimas has been a steady, although somewhat understated, presence in Santa Fe for much of his life. And his campaign has emphasized his roots in the community and various public roles that have made him a familiar figure to many longtime Santa Fe families. A former city police officer and retired county magistrate, Dimas portrays himself as the candidate who would steer clear of what he has called “fringe” issues that have no direct bearing on city government and bring the focus back to city services, including his hallmark issue of public safety.

WASHINGTON — More than 2 million Americans who would otherwise rely on a job for health insurance will quit working, reduce their hours or stop looking for employment because of new health benefits available under the Affordable Care Act, congressional budget analysts said Tuesday. The findings from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office revived a fierce debate about the impact President Barack Obama’s signature health care program will have on the U.S. economy. The White House scrambled to defend the law, which has bedeviled Obama since its 2010 passage, arguing that the report shows it will work as planned, freeing people to care for their children, retire early or start their own businesses without worrying about health coverage. “The Affordable Care Act today, right now, is helping labor markets, is helping businesses and is helping jobs,” said Jason Furman, the president’s chief economist. But Republicans hailed the report as fresh evidence that the law will decimate the American workforce, encouraging people to forgo private employment in favor of taxpayer handouts.

A state constitutional amendment that went into law in 1997 gives school districts the right to impose a property tax without putting the measure before voters. “Under this provision,” said Geno Zamora, an attorney for the school district, “there is no provision for a vote from the public.” School board member Lorraine Price, who said she hadn’t decided how she would vote, noted that while the board might have the legal right to impose the tax, voters might not like the idea. However, a poll of about 600 Santa Fe

Kerry’s first year marked by conflicts

WASHINGTON — John Kerry has spent nearly half of his first year as secretary of state jumping on and off airplanes and diving headlong into some of the world’s most difficult problems. Since taking office Feb. 4, 2013, he has brought opposing sides to the negotiating table over Syria, Iran and Israel in high-stakes diplomatic gambles that promise big payouts but could fail with catastrophic results. Kerry’s major initiatives remain works in progress and so far they have yielded few concrete results. And while they have not failed, they have opened him up to criticism not only from expected political foes but also from traditional friends and allies. “Incomplete” may be the most appropriate grade to give to his first 12 months on the job.

30 sailors linked to nuke cheating WASHINGTON — The Navy said Tuesday it is investigating about 30 senior sailors linked to alleged cheating on tests meant to qualify them to train others to operate naval nuclear power reactors. Representing roughly one-fifth of the reactor training contingent, sidelining 30 may put a pinch on the Navy’s training program, senior officials said. It is the second exam-cheating scandal to hit the military this year, on top of a series of disclosures in recent months of ethical lapses at all ranks in the military. Unlike an Air Force cheating probe that has implicated nearly 100 officers responsible for landbased nuclear missiles that stand ready for short-notice launch, those implicated in the Navy investigation have no responsibility for nuclear weapons. The Navy said the implicated sailors are accused of having cheated on written tests they must pass to be certified as instructors at a nuclear propulsion school at Charleston, S.C.

Company faces some new challenges in its second decade

NEW YORK t has been 10 years since a Harvard sophomore named Mark Zuckerberg created a website called Thefacebook.com to let his classmates find their friends online. They did. And in the decade since, so have more than a billion people, not just American college students but also farmers in India, activists in Egypt and pop stars in South Korea. Facebook has transformed how much of the world communicates. Zuckerberg’s insistence that people use real identities, not quirky screen names, helped blur, if not erase entirely, the divide between our online and offline worlds. L ong-lost friends are no longer lost. They are on Facebook. From its roots as a website with no ads, no business plan and a hacker ethic, Facebook has grown into a company worth $150 billion, with 6,337 employees and sprawling headquarters in the heart of Silicon Valley. Born in the age of desktop computers, three years before the iPhone’s debut, Facebook is now mainly accessed on mobile devices. Many of these mobile users never had a PC. “People often ask if I always knew that Facebook would become what it is today. No way,” Zuckerberg wrote — where else — on his Facebook page Tuesday. “I remember getting pizza with my friends one night in college shortly after opening Facebook. I told them I was excited to help

NEWARK, N.J. — Sixteen juveniles forced into working as prostitutes for the Super Bowl were rescued in the New York City area by the FBI in the weeks before the game, the agency said Tuesday. Officials said the children, some of whom had been reported missing by their families, ranged in age from 13 to 17. Six were found in Newark, N.J., six in New York City and four in New Haven, Conn. One of the minors, a 17-yearold girl, had spent the past two years with her pimp, said Michael Osborn, chief of the Violent Crimes Against Children unit at the FBI. More than 50 adult women who were forced to work as prostitutes were also rescued. More than 45 pimps were

connect our school community, but one day someone needed to connect the whole world.” Facebook has had plenty of stumbles along the way, from privacy concerns to user protests when Facebook introduced new features, not to mention a rocky public stock debut in 2012. Even its origin was the subject of a lawsuit and a Hollywood movie. So far, though, Facebook has trudged on. As Facebook enters its second decade, the company faces a new set of challenges in reaching the next billion users, the billion after that, and the one after that, including the majority of the world without Internet access. It must also keep the existing set interested even as younger, hipper rivals emerge and try to lure them away. There are 1.23 billion Facebook users today, or roughly 17 percent

arrested, according to investigators. Some of the victims were from other countries, authorities said. Osborn said pimps forced their victims to come to the New York City area from 13 states ahead of the game held Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. The rescues and arrests all took place during the two weeks leading up to the game. The operation came after months of investigative work to find sex trafficking rings and training of law enforcement personnel, hospitality workers, airport employees and others on identifying the signs of sex trafficking. The New Jersey Attorney General’s office set up a Super Bowl sex trafficking task force that included partners such as the FBI shortly after it was announced that the game would be held in New Jersey. The FBI said its operation con-

of the world’s population. Although that’s far from connecting the whole world, Facebook is here to stay. It’s reached critical mass. “One of the things Facebook has been good at is that it’s very easy to use and understand,” said Paul Levinson, professor of communications and media studies at Fordham University. “It’s a much friendlier system than any email system.” “When I reflect on the last 10 years, one question I ask myself is: why were we the ones to build this? We were just students. We had way fewer resources than big companies. If they had focused on this problem, they could have done it,” Zuckerberg wrote Tuesday. “The only answer I can think of is: we just cared more.” As far as birthdays go, Facebook’s brought out reflection, nostalgia and lots of memories.

sisted of more than 50 law enforcement agencies. Last week, a Florida woman was arrested for allegedly trying to prostitute her 15-year-old daughter and authorities in New York City said the number of prostitution arrests jumped in the week leading up to the game. Officials in New Jersey were particularly concerned that the state’s sprawling highway system, proximity to New York City and diverse population make it an attractive base of operations for traffickers. The Super Bowl crackdown came on the heels of the FBI’s largest such effort in June, in which 105 children were rescued and 150 pimps arrested. The FBI said it works with state and local authorities to assess the long-term needs of victims.

CHICAGO — As piles of snow grow taller during this seemingly endless winter, the mounds of salt for spreading on the nation’s icy, slushy roads are shrinking, forcing communities to ration supplies or try exotic new ice-melting substances. Cities have already gone through most of their salt well ahead of the time they traditionally really need it — when the coldest part of winter gives way to temperatures just warm enough to turn snow into freezing rain and sleet and roads into ribbons of ice. “If we don’t get the salt, at some point people are going to be sliding all over the place like what you saw in Atlanta,” said Julius Hansen, public works director in the Chicago suburb of Glen Ellyn, citing last week’s television images of thousands of motorists getting stranded on ice-covered roads in the South. So far this year, Glen Ellyn’s snowremoval crews have responded to 31 storms. “In an average winter, we have 20,” Hansen said. A community the size of Glen Ellyn, population 27,000, might use 50 to 100 tons per storm. A bigger community such as Waukesha, Wis., which has about 70,000 residents, could use 300 tons or more. The same storm in Chicago would call for more than 13,000 tons. Demand is so high that salt gets more expensive every day. Communities are trying to decide what do to. They could buy a little more salt now, or they could wait until it does snow more and risk paying even higher prices. In some areas, there has been so much snow that cities have had to find creative ways to stretch their supplies: spreading salt only on intersections and major roads and mixing it with sand. In Indiana’s Morgan County, there is so little salt left that what is on hand will be mixed with sand and used only on the hills. “We can only do what we can do,” county engineer Larry Smith said. In Pennsylvania’s Butler County, they’re trying out a product called Beet Heet, made of processed sugar beet molasses, for anti-icing purposes. Milwaukee road crews are experimenting with liquid cheese brine, mixing it in with rock salt before it goes on the road to make the salt wetter “so it will stick in place instead of bouncing away,” said Sandy Rusch Walton, a spokeswoman with Milwaukee’s Public Works Department. Elsewhere, communities have cut back. “After two mild winters,” said Lori Roman, president of the Salt Institute, a trade group, “the severe weather has caught a lot of people off guard.”

NEW YORK — Heroin recovered at Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman’s apartment after he was found there dead with a syringe in his arm has tested negative for the powerful additive fentanyl, a police official said Tuesday. Samples taken from Hoffman’s Manhattan apartment didn’t contain the potent synthetic morphine, which has been linked to 22 suspected overdose deaths in western Pennsylvania, said the official. Investigators also have determined that the Capote star made six ATM transactions for a total of $1,200 near his home the day before his death, officials said. The 46-year-old actor was found dead in the bathroom of his apartment Sunday.

Republican lawmakers seek Endangered Species Act overhaul By Matthew Brown The Associated Press

BILLINGS, Mont. — Republicans in Congress on Tuesday called for an overhaul to the Endangered Species Act to curtail environmentalists’ lawsuits and give more power to states, but experts say broad changes to one of the nation’s cornerstone environmental laws are unlikely given the pervasive partisan divide in Washington, D.C. A group of 13 GOP lawmakers representing states across the U.S. released a report proposing “targeted reforms” for the 40-year-old law, which protects imperiled plants and animals. Proponents credit the law with staving off extinction for hundreds of species — from the bald eagle and American alligator to

Oregon Rep. Peter DeFazio, the ranking Democrat on the Natural Resources Committee, suggested Tuesday that Republicans appeared intent on gutting the law. He predicted the changes being sought would go nowhere in the Senate. “There is no appetite to overturn the [Endangered Species Act],” DeFazio said. Federal wildlife officials said they would not comment on Tuesday’s report until they have a chance to review it. Throughout its history, the law has faced criticism from business interests, Republicans and others. They argue actions taken to shield at-risk species such as the northern spotted owl have severely hampered logging and other economic development.

The regional incentives scattered throughout the bill helped it pass easily in the House last week, 251-166. House leaders who had objected to the legislation since 2011 softened their disapproval as they sought to put the long-stalled bill behind them. Leaders in both parties also have hoped to bolster rural candidates in this year’s midterm elections. Conservatives remained unhappy with the bill.

Republicans have seized on the fact that only 2 percent of protected species have been declared recovered — despite billions of dollars in federal and state spending. Noah Greenwald of the Center for Biological Diversity, disputed the 2 percent figure as a “gross manipulation of facts” that ignores the hundreds of protected species now on the path to recovery. The political hurdles for an overhaul of the law are considerable. The Endangered Species Act enjoys fervent support among many environmentalists, whose Democratic allies on Capitol Hill have thwarted past proposals for change.

2014 Legislature

House speaker joins GOP effort to kill education funding measure By Milan Simonich

The New Mexican

A bill to tap New Mexico’s $12 billion land-grant endowment to help pay for K-12 public schools appears dead. In an unusual alliance Tuesday, Democratic House Speaker Kenny Martinez joined with five Republicans to table the proposed constitutional amendment. The bill stalled on a 6-5 vote of the House Voters and Elections Committee. Every Democrat on the committee except Martinez, of Grants, voted to keep it alive. The sponsor, Rep. Jim Trujillo, D-Santa Fe, said he would consider revising the bill in hopes of winning over Martinez. But Trujillo also said he doubted his bill could clear the Legislature and then be placed on the November ballot for voters to decide. “It’s going to die in Senate Finance,

anyway,” he said. Internal party politics played an important part in stopping Trujillo’s bill. Democrats in the Legislature are promoting competing bills to continue Kenny using the state’s Land Martinez Grant Permanent Fund for education programs. They know they cannot send both measures to the November ballot, so party leaders want to get behind a single bill. Rep. Antonio “Moe” Maestas, D-Albuquerque, said that was why the House speaker joined with Republicans to table Trujillo’s bill. Maestas said he and other Democrats on the committee also should have opposed Trujillo’s bill in hopes that it could be incorporated into the rival measure. Trujillo’s bill would make perma-

Bill to limit lobbying by ex-lawmakers moves forward By Steve Terrell The New Mexican

The Roundhouse “revolving door” could be slowed down this year if the Legislature passes a bill that would prohibit legislators from becoming lobbyists for two years after leaving office. The measure cleared its first committee Tuesday. The House Business and Industry Committee voted 6-5 to give a do-pass recommendation to House Bill 82, sponsored by Rep. Emily Kane, D-Albuquerque. The bill also would apply to public regulation commissioners and Cabinet secretaries. Employers would be prohibited from paying such officials to lobby until the two-year moratorium was over. Under the bill, violations would be considered misdemeanors, with a maximum sentence of one year in jail and $1,000 in fines. Kane said the public perception of the Legislature, rightly or wrongly, is that some lawmakers get elected just so they can later trade their legislative experience and contacts to get high-paying lobbyist jobs. Viki Harrison, executive director of Common Cause New Mexico, told the committee that a recent poll by her good-government group showed the public has a low opinion of New Mexico politicians. The poll, Harrison noted, showed that 78 percent of the voters surveyed supported a bill like Kane’s. Only 12 percent said they oppose such a bill. But House Republican leader Don Bratton, R-Hobbs, argued that the bill was not appropriate and possibly unconstitutional because it would limit job opportunities for legislators, who don’t earn a salary for their work. “It’s inappropriate to dictate to a volunteer legislator what they can do [after leaving office],” he said. On the committee, support for the bill and opposition to it were both bipartisan. Supporters of the bill included the newer legislators on the committee — Reps. Carl Trujillo, D-Santa Fe; Vickie Perea, R-Belen; Georgene Louis, D-Albuquerque; and Yvette Harrell, R-Alamogordo. Veterans such as committee Chairwoman Debbie Rodella, D-Española, and Jim Trujillo, D-Santa Fe, also voted for HB 82. Voting against the bill were longtime legislators, including Reps. Bratton; Tom Taylor, R-Farmington; Jane Powdrell-Culbert, R-Rio Rancho; Donna Irwin, D-Deming; and Mary Helen Garcia, D-Las Cruces. Gov. Susana Martinez is supporting the bill. She mentioned it in her State of the State address. No lobbyists who were once legislators showed up to oppose the bill. But there are plenty in the Roundhouse. Among lobbyists registered for this session are several former senators, including onetime president pro tem Richard Romero; former Senate majority leaders Tito Chavez and Tom Rutherford; Walter Bradley, who also is a former lieutenant governor, Kent Cravens, Mickey Barnett, Maurice Hobson, Lynda Lovejoy and Clint Harden. Former House members who are now registered lobbyists include former speaker Raymond Sanchez, Tom Horan, John Lee Thompson, Michael Olguin, Joe Thompson, Dick Minzner, John Underwood, Al Park, Andy Nuñez, Janice Paster and Dan Silva. Interviewed earlier this week, Silva, a former Democratic representative from Albuquerque who now lobbies for Associated Contractors of New Mexico, said HB 82 was “feel-good” legislation. He joked that he supports a fiveyear ban “so there would be less competition.” But on a serious note, he said he’s concerned that there would be “less experience” among lobbyists if the state imposes more restrictions. Rep. Jim Trujillo said that although he voted for the bill, he had similar concerns, saying he benefits from talking to former legislators who come to the Capitol during a session. HB 82 now goes to the House Judiciary Committee. Contact Steve Terrell at sterrell@ sfnewmexican.com. Read his political blog at roundhouseroundup.com.

nent a 5.5 percent allotment from the endowment for public education. The amount for schools is scheduled to drop to 5 percent starting in 2017. Trujillo said he would not support the competing bill, sponsored by Democratic Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez of Belen. Sanchez’s bill also proposes to continue using 5.5 percent of the landgrant endowment to help pay for public schools. But his measure would add another 1.5 percent for early childhood programs. Sanchez says early childhood education is the key to turning around student achievement and the state economy. His bill is scheduled to get its first hearing Wednesday morning in the Senate Rules Committee. Most Democratic senators are supporting Sanchez’s initiative. But Sen. John Arthur Smith, D-Deming,

is against it, and he chairs the Senate Finance Committee. Smith last year refused to allow a vote on the early childhood bill in his committee, killing it. Republicans oppose both bills. In stopping Trujillo’s proposal in the House committee, Republican lawmakers said K-12 education programs had siphoned hundreds of millions from the endowment, but student achievement had not improved. “I don’t see a return on this money in terms of outcomes,” said Rep. Monica Youngblood, R-Albuquerque. Another Albuquerque Republican, Rep. Bill Rehm, said the legislative staff’s own financial analysis described Trujillo’s bill as risky. “This increased distribution will undoubtedly deplete the fund over time,” the analysis stated. It had the exact same summary of Sanchez’s bill. State analysts estimated that Tru-

jillo’s bill would increase distributions for public schools by $209 million from 2017 to 2019. Currently, the Land Grand Permanent Fund distributes more than $500 million a year to beneficiaries, mostly public schools. The endowment grows through investments and royalties paid to New Mexico for use of its land, notably for oil drilling. The legislative analysis Rehm cited projected that Trujillo’s bill would diminish the corpus of the fund by $368 million by 2020, and 10 years after that, “the negative impact” would grow to nearly $1.81 billion. State analysts said Sanchez’s bill would cause even deeper reductions in the size of the endowment. Contact Milan Simonich at 986-3080 or msimonich@nmnewmexican.com.

Panel backs raise for top state officials By Barry Massey

The Associated Press

A budget proposal pending before a House committee would provide nearly $111 million to raise the salaries of public employees next year, including a 10 percent pay increase for the governor and other top elected officials. The salaries of the governor, attorney general, secretary of state, land commissioner, treasurer and auditor haven’t changed since 2003. But Republican Gov. Susana Martinez opposes the proposed pay hike for elected officials. The Appropriations and Finance Committee is expected to vote on a $6 billion budget package Thursday that includes 3 percent cost-of-living salary increases for state agency workers, teachers and other educational employees next year. The committee also proposes

larger pay increases next year for certain government jobs: u 8 percent for judges, district attorneys, state police and motor transportation officers. u 6 percent for prison guards, juvenile justice officers, social workers handling child-abuse cases and educational assistants in schools. u $10 million to boost the minimum salaries for all teachers by about $2,000: from $30,000 to $32,000 for an entry-level teacher; $40,000 to $42,000 for a “Level 2” teacher; and from $50,000 to $52,000 for the most experienced classroom teachers. Also included is money for a 10 percent pay increase next year for the governor and other statewide elected officials, who don’t receive cost-ofliving adjustments when those are provided to other workers. “We haven’t given them anything,” said Rep. Luciano “Lucky” Varela, a Santa Fe Democrat and deputy chair-

man of the House committee that handles the budget. In the current budget year, state workers are to receive average salary increases of 1 percent and state police are to get 4 percent. Those are the first raises in four years because the state struggled with tight finances when the economy soured. Even if the budget includes money for a pay raise for elected officials, lawmakers must approve separate legislation to change state law to boost their salaries. If a 10 percent raise is enacted, the governor’s yearly pay would increase to $121,000. Salaries for secretary of state, auditor and treasurer would go to $93,500. The attorney general’s salary would be $104,500, and the state land commissioner would earn $99,000 annually. Unlike statewide elected officials, judges receive cost-of-living increases when those are granted.

With the proposed 8 percent increase, the salary of the chief justice of the state Supreme Court would be $136,921; other Supreme Court justices would receive $134,921; and District Court judges would be paid $121,767. But their take-home pay could end up being lower because a proposed overhaul of the retirement system would require judges to contribute an additional 3 percent of their salaries to their pension fund. Enrique Knell, a spokesman for the governor, said Martinez favors targeted salary increases for employees in jobs that are difficult to recruit and retain, such as child protective services caseworkers, adult and juvenile probation officers and correctional officers. The governor also has proposed merit pay for high-performing teachers and boosting the salaries of starting teachers to $33,000.

Railway proposal clears hurdle, but lawmakers wary By Patrick Malone The New Mexican

New Mexico legislators took the first step Tuesday toward partnering with two other states and railroad interests to keep Amtrak’s Southwest Chief route running through the state’s northern corridor beyond 2015. But Gov. Susana Martinez’s transportation secretary-designate said New Mexico should put the brakes on funding the project until a thorough cost-benefit analysis has been done and possible constitutional snags are reconciled. “I believe everyone needs to do their homework and come back next year,” state transportation chief Tom Church told The New Mexican. Elected officials from communities on the line’s current route said there is no time to wait. They urged the House Transportation and Public Works Committee to support a cost-sharing agreement between New Mexico, Colorado, Kansas, Amtrak

Legislative roundup Days remaining in session: 15 No budging on casinos: The Navajo Nation is refusing to renegotiate a compact to limit gambling operations as requested by lawmakers on the Committee on Compacts. Under a new compact negotiated with the governor, the tribe would be allowed to build a total of five Las-Vegas style casinos. Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly said in a Feb. 1 letter to the governor that the “number of Gaming Facilities has been a very important position to the Navajo Nation.” Shelly said the tribe has an unemployment rate of 50 percent, and the additional casinos will help create jobs. He added, “It is the position of the Navajo Nation that the Gaming Compact, in its current form, is fair, reasonable, and will continue to provide great benefits to the Navajo Nation and the State of New Mexico.” The committee is scheduled to meet Wednesday to continue the discussions. According to the New Mexico Negotiation Act, the committee can ask the tribe to renegotiate the compact two more times. Or it can vote to pass the compact along to the full Legislature, with or without a recommendation for it to be approved. Retention bill moves ahead: A bill introduced by Sen. Gay Kernan, R-Hobbs, to retain thirdgraders who do not read proficiently advanced Tuesday night. The Senate Public Affairs Committee voted 5-2 to move the bill forward without a recommendation.

and Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway. Its estimated cost is $4 million annually over the next decade from each entity beginning next year. The committee sent House Bill 241 to the House Appropriations Committee with a “do pass” recommendation, but not without reservations. Some lawmakers on the panel are reluctant to spend state money on the project and squabbled over whether funds should come from the general fund or severance tax revenue. Others questioned whether towns and counties along the route should raise taxes to pay for the plan themselves. Legislation authorizing cost sharing has been introduced in New Mexico and Colorado, and legislation is expected to be introduced in Kansas any day. Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway owns the tracks along the Southwest Chief route. Its current contract with Amtrak expires in January 2016. Lamy, Las Vegas and Raton would be eliminated from the route if no agreement is reached.

Sen. Daniel Ivey-Soto, D-Albuquerque, said debate over the retention bill needed to occur in the Education Committee, so he asked that it move ahead. Kernan next will present her bill to the Education Committee, which killed it last year. Rep. Mary Helen Garcia, D-Las Cruces, is carrying a similar retention bill in the House of Representatives. Currently, parents have a onetime veto over school staffs on retention of a student. Gas tax for lottery scholarships: Looking to pump more money into New Mexico’s foundering lottery scholarship fund, Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez, D-Belen, floated the idea of a 1-cent tax on gasoline purchases. Sanchez casually discussed the idea during an impromptu visit Tuesday to the press outpost at the Roundhouse. He said he doesn’t expect legislation seeking a gas-tax hike to be introduced during the current legislative session, but he has it on his radar for 2015. Sanchez said he thinks New Mexico residents would recognize the benefit of taxing themselves to help the Legislature keep its promise that authorizing lottery games would benefit education. He said his staff estimates a 1-cent tax on gas could generate up to $30 million in annual revenue. The lottery-funded scholarships pay full tuition for about 13,000 college students in the state, but the annual obligation has outpaced revenue by about $25 million. Many proposals to reconcile the deficit are being considered by the Legislature. Sanchez said he opposes any that would limit students’ access to funds — including means testing and raising the minimum qualifying gradepoint average from 2.50 to 2.75. Funding for indigent care: Sen. Nancy Rodriguez, D-Santa Fe, has

Attempts to secure federal funding to ensure continued operation of the Southwest Chief along its current route have been fruitless. New Mexico’s governor has said funding for the Southwest Chief route is a federal responsibility. Church said provisions in the New Mexico Constitution could prohibit the state from using public funds to subsidize a private railroad, and the project’s estimated cost is a moving target, which worries the Martinez administration. Even if lawmakers to pass the bill, Martinez could ultimately veto it. A proposed New Mexico State University study would measure needs and economic benefits associated with the Southwest Chief. Church favors waiting for the results before committing funds. Contact Patrick Malone at 986-3017 or pmalone@sfnewmexican.com. Follow him on Twitter @pmalonenm.

introduced Senate Bill 268, aimed at creating a funding stream to pay for indigent health care and help hospitals bridge the gap between the costs of providing services to Medicaid patients and the amount Medicaid reimburses hospitals for those services. The Sole Community Provider program — under which county contributions were matched at a federal level to fund these purposes in the past — was eliminated under a recent Human Services Department rewrite of the state’s Medicaid program, resulting in a funding gap of more than $100 million. The bill would require counties to devote half of a one-eighth-cent indigent claims tax to the state to be leveraged to obtain federal money to pay indigent care claims and supplement Medicaid payments. In the past, counties had discretion over how much money they contributed to the state for that purpose. The bill is a scaled-back version of a proposal put forth by the Human Services Department before the session started, which called for counties to relinquish the entire one-eighth-cent tax to the state. Human Services Secretary Brent Earnest said the department does not support the bill — which was sent to the Public Affairs Committee on Tuesday — because, he said, it does not provide enough funding to make the new system work. The Santa Fe County Commission supports the bill. Education funding flap: Public Education Secretary-designate Hanna Skandera said Tuesday that the Democrat-driven House Bill 3 — which funds public education in the state — is “not acceptable when it comes to educational reform.” The $2.7 billion bill includes more

than $136 million in new flexible funding for school districts to use as they see fit and also guts funding for many of Gov. Susana Martinez’s proposed initiatives. Skandera said she hopes to work with both the Legislative Finance Committee and members of both houses to come up with a compromise bill. Rep. Mimi Stewart, D-Albuquerque, who introduced the bill, said Tuesday at a news conference, “This is us doing the right thing. Her [Martinez’s] bill is horrible.” The Democrats stopped short of saying the action is a repudiation of Martinez’s educational reform platform. The bill next goes to the House for a vote. Looking ahead: Wednesday, Feb. 5, is the last day legislators can introduce bills. u The Senate Rules Committee at 8:30 a.m. Monday is scheduled to have an informational briefing about the State Fair, including a controversial contract with The Downs Racetrack & Casino in Albuquerque. Committee Chairwoman Sen. Linda Lopez, D-Albuquerque, has sent invitations to Gov. Susana Martinez, her political consultant Jay McCleskey, Expo New Mexico General Manager Dan Mourning and State Auditor Hector Balderas to speak at the hearing. It is not known whether any of them intend to appear. A spokesman for the governor last week called the hearing a “petty political sideshow.” Critics of The Downs deal say the operators of the racetrack got preferable treatment in the procurement process. Administration officials have said nothing was done illegally, and nobody has been charged with any wrongdoing in the deal. The New Mexican

While Dimas has name recognition, he said he’s taking his message of “community, honesty and integrity” directly to voters, talking to them one on one. Dimas swore off attending any public forums for the candidates, a decision he announced in a quarter-page newspaper ad. “I have found from past experience in forums that the questions from the audience are often ‘planted’ — softball questions for the favorite candidate or ambush questions for the opposition,” Dimas stated in the ad. Dimas has been widely criticized for skipping the forums, which he said he anticipated. “Public speaking doesn’t scare me,” he said. But Dimas doesn’t like to be put on the spot. Late last year, Dimas attended an event at Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center with other mayoral candidates, including some who would later drop out. In his closing remarks, Dimas told audience members that it wasn’t easy to be up there and challenged them to sit in his seat if they didn’t believe him. Dimas said he had been told that the candidates were only there to talk “a little bit” about themselves, but audience members suddenly started “firing questions.” “I’m not afraid to answer questions,” he said, “but I’d like to kind of know what they’re going to be about.” Former Mayor Sam Pick said Dimas’ decision to skip the forums was a political mistake. “Anyone who’s running for office can turn any question that’s asked of them around to make a point that they want to make,” Pick said. “In the eyes of people who don’t know any of the three candidates, it’s going to hurt him.” An early poll, conducted in October, found that 37 percent of likely voters were undecided or wouldn’t disclose their choice for mayor. Some political observers say the three-way race hinges on that undecided bloc of voters. A more recent poll, conducted Jan. 16-22, found that the portion of

“I didn’t know that we had a quota that we had to meet,” Dimas said. “If I’m going to introduce legislation, it’s going to be meaningful legislation. I’m not just going to produce legislation just to produce it.” Among the legislation introduced by Dimas was a bill to stop adding fluoride to the city’s water supply, a resolution calling for a “drug hotline,” in which callers could report illegal drug activity, and a resolution for a veterans’ hiring initiative in city government. Dimas abstained from voting last year on a City Council resolution urging marriage equality in New Mexico. Dimas, who has a gay stepson whom he raised from age 7 and considers his own, said he supports marriage equality, but that the matter was out of the council’s purview. “It was absolutely not a City Council issue. It was a federal issue, and I stated that the night of my vote,” he said. “We City Councilor Bill Dimas says he didn’t plan to run for mayor just didn’t have any business voting on when he ran for council two years that.” ago, but ‘a lot of people’ encourDimas, however, voted in favor of a aged him to get in the race.

Bypass: Board scheduled to vote on tax at Feb. 18 meeting Continued from Page A-1 voters conducted by Third Eye Strategies showed that 74 percent of those surveyed support the new tax. The poll cost the district about $10,000. If the new tax is approved, the district estimates that the owner of a $300,000 home would have to pay about $150 a year in additional property taxes. The board is scheduled to vote on the tax Feb. 18. The board could choose, instead, to give voters the right to approve a general obligation bond to raise the technology funds. Nationwide, many districts are moving toward similar technological overhauls and are dealing with unexpected challenges along the way. In Los Angeles, for instance, where all students were given tablet computers, some quickly learned how to hack the school system to access unauthorized social media sites and video games. Other school districts pursuing the same path have encountered problems such as students inadvertently breaking the screens of computers or tablets, or data systems being incompatible with district curriculum. Superintendent Joel Boyd told Tuesday’s assembly that a larger district like Los Angeles is dealing with 650,000 kids and thus has “challenges we

A state constitutional amendment that went into law in 1997 gives school districts the right to impose a property tax without putting the measure before voters. don’t even have to consider here.” After Tuesday’s meeting, Boyd said by phone that Santa Fe Public Schools would face a very real need to “manage access to different aspects of the Internet as well as managing the physical property” if it moves forward with the initiative. Chief Academy Officer Almudena “Almi” Abeyta said it also will be critical to train teachers in integrating the new technology into their classrooms. She said younger teachers are more versed in computer technology, but older teachers are willing to learn as long as they have strong support. With school board approval, the district would begin implementing professional development for teachers this summer, starting with the new Niña Otero Community School, El Camino Real Academy — which is replacing Agua Fría Elementary School — and Atalaya Elementary School, where construction is underway. Training at

schools undergoing major renovations will follow, such as Kearny and Piñon elementary schools. It would take five years to implement the upgrades. This is not the first time the district has sought funding for technology. In February 2012, Santa Fe voters approved a bond to provide $12.7 million per year for six years to fund construction and technological enhancements. The district also invested about $2.4 million in purchasing Apple computers and technology for students in the summer of 2012. School board member Glenn Wikle said voters likely will remember these actions, and there might be frustration among some who think “we voted for money for technology, and we’re still not there yet.” Boyd responded, “We just can’t go as far as we need to go as fast as we need to get there. That’s the challenge we have ahead of us.” Contact Robert Nott at 986-3021 or rnott@sfnewmexican.com.

On Tuesday, few Democrats publicly defended the law, a sign that lawmakers recognize its vulnerability. In its report, the CBO said severe technical problems during the October rollout of the HealthCare.gov website would sharply curtail enrollment this year. In its assessment of the law’s impact on the jobs market, the agency had bad news for both political parties. In an implicit rebuke of GOP talking points, the CBO said that there was little evidence that the health care law is affecting employment and that businesses are not expected to significantly reduce head count or hours as a result of the law. But the report also contained a setback for the White House. The CBO predicts that the economy will have the equivalent of 2.3 million fewer full-time workers by 2021 as a result of the law — nearly three times previous estimates. After obtaining coverage under the health care law, some workers will choose to forgo employment, the report said, while others will voluntarily reduce their hours. That is because insurance subsidies under the law become less generous as income rises, so workers will have less incentive to work more or at all. The design of the subsidies — like many social safety-net pro-

Medicaid. Both figures are off by 1 million people compared with previous CBO forecasts. But enrollment will pick up within a few years, the CBO said, forecasting that enrollment in the marketplaces’ health plans will eventually hover between 24 million and 25 million, while 12 million to 13 million people will be covered through Medicaid and CHIP, the Children’s Health Insurance Program. Despite the glitches, the CBO said 86 percent of American citizens and legal residents younger than 65 will have health insurance this year, up from 82 percent in 2013. And that figure is expected to continue rising, topping out at 92 percent in 2017. The Obama administration has not produced its own enrollment forecasts for coverage under the law, one of the president’s main domestic achievements. But internally and in public forums, the administration’s top health officials have for months been using the 7 million estimate that the CBO issued in May.

WARSAW, Poland ne of the cardinal rules in the Catholic Church: obedience to the pope. So it has come as a shock for many in the Catholic world that John Paul II’s most trusted confidant has betrayed the beloved pontiff’s last will and testament by publishing personal notes he wanted burned. Deep moral dilemmas were at stake for Stanislaw Dziwisz — between loyalty and conscience, the wishes of the pope and the obligations of history. John Paul ordered the notes burned after his death and put Dziwisz, his secretary, in charge of the task. To everyone’s surprise, Dziwisz, now a cardinal, said recently that he “did not have the courage” to destroy the notes and is having them published as a precious insight into the inner life of the beloved pontiff, who will be declared a saint in April. The book — Very Much in God’s Hands. Personal Notes 1962-2003 — comes out in Poland on Wednesday. Criticism so far has outpaced praise. “I don’t think it is right for a church member to go against the will and authority of the pope, whatever the reason,” Ewelina Gniewnik said as she was leaving Savior’s Church in downtown Warsaw. “I’m not sure that Cardinal Dziwisz knows what he is doing.” The Polish-language book contains religious meditations that Karol Wojtyla recorded between July 1962 and March 2003 — spanning a period in which he went from being a bishop in Poland to a globetrotting superstar pope. There are plans to publish the book in English and other languages but no details have been fixed. The decision to publish does not go against papal infallibility, which contrary to popular belief applies only to matters of church doctrine. And Dziwisz also was free to follow his conscience — since the obligation to obey the pope ends with his death or retirement. Still some are expressing shock that a trusted aide would defy the orders of the pope, especially on a matter as sacred as a will — with the Internet flooded with angry comments against Dziwisz. The book itself may be a tough slog for ordinary readers. It runs 640 pages and basically consists of sometimes arcane ideas or trains of thought that spring from citations from the Bible. Priests, theologians and philosophers will be inspired — the layperson will find it opaque. However, one cryptic

O

remark about sinful priests, registered in March 1981, perhaps gains new significance under the flood of pedophilia cases against Roman Catholic clergy. “The social aspect of sin,” wrote John Paul, “it hurts the Church as a community. Especially a sin by a priest.” There have been other cases in history in which executors defied instructions of famous people to destroy their work. Russian novelist Vladimir Nabokov’s son, Dmitri, published his father’s unfinished work The Original of Laura — which Nabokov had left instructions to burn — and justified the act by saying he didn’t want to go down in history as a “literary arsonist.” Dziwisz was prepared for accusations of betrayal. He was John Paul’s personal secretary and closest aide for almost 40 years in Poland and at the Vatican, where — Vatican experts say — he made key decisions in the pope’s waning years. After John Paul’s death in 2005 at age 84, he was made Archbishop of Krakow, in southern Poland, where he is building a museum memorial to the Polish pope. The book’s proceeds are to go to the memorial. “I had no doubt,” he said recently. “These notes are so important, they say so much about the spiritual side, about the person, about the great pope, that it would have been a crime to destroy them.” He noted the despair of historians after Pope Pius XII’s letters were burnt. Respected church commentator, the Rev. Adam Boniecki, wrote in a Polish Catholic weekly that he was at first “surprised in an unpleasant way” by Dziwisz’s decision But, after reading the book, Boniecki wrote: “I am grateful to him for having taken the risk of following his own conscience and not being a meticulous formalist.” Some ordinary worshippers were also supportive. “The teaching and prayers of our pope are most precious to us and we should study them with attention,” said Maria Welgo. “We should be thankful that Cardinal Dziwisz left these notes for us.” Lawyers in Poland are not sure whether Dziwisz broke the law by disobeying the will — which explicitly said: “Burn my personal notes.” Jacek Stokolosa of the Domanski Zakrzewski Palinka Law Firm said that without studying the entire will he was not even sure whether Dziwisz was an executor under Polish law. The Rev. Jan Machniak, who wrote the preface, said that the book is intended for readers who need to bring order into their life, or need guidance in their own spiritual growth. The book may be more surprising for what it does not contain: reference to world events and the collapse of communism in John Paul’s native Poland, which the pope played a critical role in bringing about.

ill O’Reilly’s Super Bowl interview of President Barack Obama was extraordinarily revealing — not because of what the president said but because of what the interviewer did. The Fox News host and purveyor of anti-Obama sentiment was given 10 minutes to question the man he decries to millions nightly. O’Reilly devoted nearly 40 percent of his time to the attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, 30 percent to the Obamacare rollout and 20 percent to IRS targeting. Along the way, he interrupted the president 42 times, by my count — although, given the amount O’Reilly spoke, it may be more accurate to say Obama was interrupting him. Sometimes he argued with Obama as though the president were a guest on The O’Reilly Factor. Of the 2,500 words uttered during the interview, O’Reilly spoke nearly 1,000 of them. This was O’Reilly’s third such session with Obama — and as such it served as a milepost on the conservative movement’s road to Obama hysteria. O’Reilly’s first sitdown with Obama, in 2008, was a lengthy and affectionate encounter. The second meeting, another Super Bowl interview in 2011, had its share of interruptions, but there was lighthearted banter and the questions were more neutral (“What is it about the job that has surprised you the most?”). But this time, O’Reilly gave only a passing pleasantry at the end (“I think your heart is in the right place”) and otherwise was hostile from the start. He leaned forward in his

I seat, waving his pen and pointing his finger at the president. He shook his head doubtfully at some of Obama’s answers. Here he was “asking” Obama about whether the Benghazi killings were a terrorist attack: Obama: “By definition, Bill, when somebody is attacking our compound — “ O’Reilly: “Yes?” Obama: “ — that’s an act of terror, which is how I characterized it the day after it happened. So the — so the question ends up being who, in fact, was attacking us?” O’Reilly: “But it’s more than that — ” Obama: “And that — ” O’Reilly: “ — though — ” Obama: “ — well, we — ” O’Reilly: “ — because of Susan Rice.” Obama: “No, it — ” O’Reilly: “It’s more than that, because if Susan Rice goes out and tells the world that it was a spontaneous demonstration … ” Obama: “Bill — ” O’Reilly: “ — off a videotape but your … ” Obama: “Bill … ” O’Reilly: “ — your commanders and the secretary of defense know it’s a terror attack … ” Obama: “Now, Bill … ”

O’Reilly: “Just … ” Obama: “ — Bill … ” O’Reilly: “ — as an American … ” Obama: “ — Bill — Bill … ” O’Reilly: “ — I’m just confused.” Obama: “And I’m — and I’m trying to explain it to, if you want to listen.” O’Reilly did not want to listen. He wanted to inform Obama that “I’m paying Kathleen Sebelius’ salary and she screwed up, and you’re not holding her accountable.” He all but demanded that Obama confess that his “you can keep your health care plan” promise was the biggest mistake of his presidency. “Oh, Bill, you’ve got a long list of my mistakes of my presidency,” Obama demurred. The Fox News host further informed Obama that “your detractors believe that you did not tell the world [Libya] was a terror attack because your campaign didn’t want that out.” “And they believe it,” Obama replied, “because folks like you are telling them that.” “No, I’m not telling them that,” O’Reilly said. Right. The guests on O’Reilly’s show are telling them that. Obama wore no tie and sat

with legs crossed, frequently smiling, and refusing to be provoked, even when O’Reilly said that “some people” (but not him, of course) allege that the IRS was being used for corrupt purposes. Obama again held a mirror to O’Reilly. “These kinds of things keep on surfacing, in part because you and your TV station will promote them.” O’Reilly read a letter from a California woman asking Obama, “Why do you feel it’s necessary to fundamentally transform the nation?” This turned out to be a trick question. “I don’t think we have to fundamentally transform the nation — ” Obama began. O’Reilly interrupted. “But those are your words.” They were. “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America,” Obama said, just before his election in 2008. He went on to say this transformation would end the “politics that would divide a nation.” O’Reilly himself is proof that the transformation failed. Follow Dana Milbank on Twitter @milbank.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

New Mexico’s children deserve more support

N

ew Mexicans, we are failing our children. Our 70 percent high school graduation rate is among the lowest in the nation. Fewer than 55 percent of 11th-graders are proficient in reading and math. Only 17 percent of high school graduates meet ACT testing college benchmarks. In 2013, New Mexico spent over $2.5 billion in taxpayer dollars on our schools, including $21 million remediating underprepared students accepted to college. Every parent and voter should demand more dollars for schools and accountability from legislators and school boards to ensure quality public education and a meaningful high school diploma. Support our Santa Fe schools. Urge your legislators to support more “abovethe-line” funding so education funds go directly to school districts; to continue the 5.8 percent contribution for education from the permanent fund; and to amend the funding formula so that all children, including the poor, at-risk and special needs, are better served.

Spending is the problem I was dismayed to read the recent letter from my good friend, Rosemary Romero, defending PAC spending in the mayoral election. She overlooks the important difference between expressing support for candidates and spending money to get them elected. Nobody has a problem with backing a candidate through news releases, letters, op-eds, phone calls or any other kind of free communication or unpaid volunteer work. But we do object to campaign spending by outside groups when all candidates have agreed to limit their spending to the amount they have received from the city. When 63 percent of the electorate voted to adopt public campaign financing in Santa Fe, they were voting to eliminate the influence of private campaign contributions on our elected officials. By reintroducing private campaign funding in another form, these PACs are thwarting the voters’ will and threatening the survival of public financing in Santa Fe. Jim Harrington

Joe Oliver is wrong when he says the U.S. must find an “oil supply from an environmentally responsible friend (i.e., Canada’s XL pipeline) or from unstable sources with lesser standards.” (Feb. 1) He leaves out the two important choices of a) reducing overall energy consumption and b) supporting renewable and sustainable energy, such as solar, that isn’t dependent on fossil fuels. If our nation’s leaders, starting with our president and Congress, were truly committed to energy independence, then they would encourage conservation and the development of sustainable sources, not a crude oil pipeline running through the heart of our country. As a Christian whose faith calls me to care for God’s creation and a citizen who deeply loves this land, I urge President Barack Obama and others to support such true energy independence, not a pipeline disaster waiting to happen.

n this controversy-a-second world, it comes as little surprise that a fraction of the nation was offended because (gasp!) Coca-Cola had the temerity to show the singing of “America the Beautiful” in a language other than English. The ad managed to steal the spotlight during this year’s Super Bowl, with the conversation still chattering on. The tribute to America’s strength — its multicultural community — was a bright spot in what otherwise was a mostly dismal Super Bowl (the game was a blowout). Yet, within seconds of the airing of the commercial, “It’s Beautiful,” the twits of Twitter began spouting inanities. One of the least offensive tweets: “Still confused as to why they were singing about America in all those foreign languages in the Coke commercial. We speak English … .” The faux outrage grew much nastier over the hours. Some are even threatening a Coke boycott and right-wing commentators have joined in the chorus of boos, moving the fuss mainstream. Former Congressman Alan West of Florida took to his blog to opine: “If we cannot be proud enough as a country to sing ‘America the Beautiful’ in English in a commercial during the Super Bowl, by a company as American as they come — doggone, we are on the road to perdition. This was a truly disturbing commercial for me, what say you?” We say folks like him are all wet. We liked the spot even before we learned of its New Mexican star from Santo Domingo Pueblo (Ghost Ranch was seen, too). Teenager Christy Bird, who is from Santo Domingo but lives in Albuquerque, is featured blowing dust, about 9 seconds in. Her native language is Keres, one of several languages spoken by New Mexico’s Pueblo people. Her moment on the screen pays tribute to so much more than a soft drink. To continue to speak a Native language, in the force of occupation — first by Spaniards, then Americans — is to survive despite repeated attempts at extermination. To speak that language before millions of people around the world is a testament to great will and endurance. Even the tale of how Bird made it to the international stage is fascinating. She told reporter Uriel Garcia that one of her former teachers at Santa Fe Indian School emailed her about a tryout for the Coke ad. She passed the auditions, but before she could appear, she had to receive permission from the governor of Santo Domingo, or Kewa, Pueblo. Then, Bird turned to family members for help translating the song — Keres is not a written language. That story shows the importance of community, a strength of Native peoples everywhere. We are so proud to see a young Pueblo girl, representing her people and her state on national television. Unlike the angry hordes, Bird’s perspective about the fuss over the ad is refreshing. “I was disappointed and hurt because America isn’t just English-speaking. There’s a lot of cultures out there.” A lot of cultures, yes — the enduring strength of this United States of America.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Feb. 5, 1914: Detectives of the Santa Fe railroad, Sheriff Closson and City Marshal Armijo have been at work trying to find the man who made a triple attempt to wreck the Santa Fe stub train No. 723 Sunday evening. … Tracks have been found that seem to afford a clue. The tracks have been found at all three sites; they show that the shoes had a metal plate on the tip of the heels and on the toes, with heavy nails in the heels. Detectives in the city today stated that the work to derail the train may have been done by a lunatic bent on seeing the train roll over “like in the moving pictures.” Feb. 5, 1964: Dulce — Officials said today that 1,546 enrolled members of the Jicarilla Apache Tribe will receive a total of $386,500 in dividend checks next Monday. Each tribal member enrolled as of noon Jan. 1 will receive $250 under the distribution plan. All children born prior to that hour are eligible. Feb. 5, 1989: A Texas businessman wanted in the shooting death of his wife and the attempted slaying of his stepson ended a 24-hour flight from police by killing himself early Saturday in a Santa Fe hotel. His death ended a two-hour standoff with police at the hotel on Cerrillos Road. The businessman blamed his 13-year-old stepson for the impending divorce that would end his six-month marriage.

Risk taker tries to impress everyone Dear Annie: I am 69 years old, and my lovely lady friend is 65. We’ve only been dating for seven months, but I love her very much. However, a few things about her drive me up the wall. We live apart, and that is fine — she stays with me for a week and then goes home for a week. Here’s the problem. She is an impulsive shopper. She never leaves a store without picking up something, even though she doesn’t need it. Secondly, she is a terrible procrastinator, changing our meeting times constantly. Finally, and worst of all, she is a huge risk taker. She tries to impress everyone and acts as if she is still in her 30s. Recently, in the middle of a freezing snowstorm, she told me she was going to the gym. I said, “Are you nuts?” Her comment was, “I am a good driver and know how to handle the snow.” A few months ago, we were at the ocean, and she decided to see how far out she could swim. The lifeguard finally had to whistle her to come back in. She told him, “I know what I am doing.” She once tried to hand-feed a raccoon. She now wants to try skydiving and zip lining. I reminded her that she is 65 and needs to be a little more careful. But she gets mad at me when I say things like that, commenting that she’s been doing these kinds of crazy things all her life. I am really afraid that one day her luck is going to run out. How do I address this situation without upsetting her? Or am I being overly protective? — Worried Dear Worried: Please do not assume that age is a factor. Plenty of 65-year-olds are perfectly healthy and extremely active. Unless your friend has a physical condition that limits her zip lining and skydiving, don’t upset yourself over it. Hand-feeding a raccoon is simply idiotic, however, and some of her behavior indicates that she lacks sound judgment. If that’s a recent development, she should see her doctor. Otherwise, we

suggest you stop reminding her how old she is. She seems sensitive about it and is likely to overcompensate. Dear Annie: I am a caregiver for my husband, who was diagnosed with Lewy body dementia three years ago. Before that time, I had never heard of Lewy body dementia, nor did I know that there are actually four distinct dementia classifications: Alzheimer’s, Lewy body, frontal lobe and vascular. At this time, there are 1.3 million Americans who have been diagnosed with Lewy body dementia, which is the second most common progressive dementia and is believed to be under-diagnosed. These individuals are drug sensitive, and the incorrect drugs can cause full-blown dementia. Anybody who shows signs of dementia should see their primary care physician and request a referral to a neurologist for proper diagnostic testing — the sooner, the better. — Trinidad, Calif. Dear Trinidad: Thank you for calling this to our attention. Aside from the familiar cognitive symptoms of dementia (which are also common to Alzheimer’s), Lewy’s includes visual hallucinations, as well as movement disorders that may be related to Parkinson’s. The earlier it is diagnosed the sooner treatment can begin. Those who wish to know more about Lewy body dementia can contact lbda.org. Dear Annie: After reading “North Carolina” and “Less Generous,” I realized that we have become too busy to say thank you. Children raised by loving, considerate parents have no time for them; grandchildren don’t visit grandparents or acknowledge gifts. I fear that decency and values are slowly leaving the younger generations. If changes aren’t made, it will be a sad world to live in. The future is up to them.

Ski club supports handing Pajarito to county Most members of Los Alamos organization willing to accept change to keep area run locally By Anne Constable The New Mexican

More than 200 members of the Los Alamos Ski Club voted Tuesday night to support efforts by the club’s board to sustain skiing at Pajarito Mountain, including the option of dissolving the 70-year-old ski club and transferring its assets to Los Alamos County.

A couple of dozen people voted no. Tom Long, manager of the ski area, said after the meeting that support for the board was “overwhelming.” The special membership meeting was called to take the pulse of the club on various ideas, including turning the land, equipment, buildings and rolling stock over to the county, which already operates a public ice rink, aquatic center and golf course. According to the board, the Los Alamos Ski Club is facing financial challenges, due in part to climate change and paltry snowfalls. The 750-acre ski area on the eastern edge of the Jemez Mountains, five miles west of Los Alamos,

suspended operations Jan. 12 because of lack of snow. The club, which relies on fees paid by seasonpass holders and day-ticket sales, does not have the funds needed to improve infrastructure and increase snowmaking, an essential component of modern skiing. The turnout at the meeting was an indication that this is a “pretty emotional issue,” Long acknowledged. “The club is a long-standing part of the community, its culture and fabric. Any change would be traumatic.” The announcement of the meeting prompted

Storm ends long dry spell

Mom sues county, alleges mold made family ill Complaint charges Housing Authority knew of dangers at rentals, were negligent By Phaedra Haywood

The New Mexican

Susan McKinsey makes her way through the snow as she walks along Old Santa Fe Trail near the state Capitol on Tuesday. McKinsey, who works for The University of New Mexico Office of Government Relations and the Alumni Association, was in the city to participate in the 125thanniversary celebration of UNM in the New Mexico House.

A Santa Fe woman is seeking damages from Santa Fe County, claiming she and her children became ill while living in a subsidized housing unit contaminated with mold. According to a complaint filed in state District Court, Noreen Quintana and her two children, who were ages 5 and 1 at the time, moved into a county-owned home in the Valle Vista housing development on N.M. 14 in January 2012, and about six weeks later, they started suffering from symptoms “later determined to have been caused by exposure to mold.” Visible mold growth could be seen on the wall and ceiling near the bathtub, and there were signs of water damage on the ceiling and walls of a heater closet in the home, according to the complaint. Air samples taken June 29, 2012, found Aspergillus and Penicillium mold in the house, according to the complaint, and upon learning this, Quintana and her children moved out. Santa Fe County moved Quintana to another home and paid for steam cleaning of some of her belongings, according to Quintana’s attorney, Roger Wagman, and the family stayed there for another six months before moving out of county housing. “During the time that [Quintana] and her children lived at the rented premises they developed chronic health problems as a result of exposure to the mold and continued to suffer from these problems,” according to the lawsuit. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website, www.cdc.gov, Aspergillus is a common fungus that can be found inside and outside. “Most people breathe in Aspergillus spores every day without being affected,” according to the website, but some people — particularly those with lung disease or weakened immune systems — can become ill from the fungus and develop allergic reactions, lung infection and infections in other organs. Reached by phone Tuesday, Quintana referred questions to her attorney. Wagman answered a few questions but referred a reporter to the state District Court complaint, saying he generally does not elaborate on pending litigation.

Weather Service warns more snow, cold temps will make travel hazardous The New Mexican

S

anta Fe awoke to a few inches of snow Tuesday, and the National Weather Service is predicting more for Wednesday. A Tuesday afternoon report by the National Weather Service in Albuquerque forecast below normal temperatures and periods of snow for the rest of the week. The chance of snow during the day Wednesday was 40 percent, with a high of 30 degrees. For Wednesday night, the National Weather Service was predicting a 60 percent chance of snow and accumulations of 1 to 2 inches. However, forecasters warned that wind chill could bring the temperature to as low as zero. The weather service also warned that the snow, combined with cold temperatures, could create tough travel conditions along the Interstate 25 corridor from Albuquerque through Santa Fe. National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Luckett said between 2 and 3.8 inches of snow fell in the Santa Fe area overnight Monday. Areas south of Santa Fe, such as Eldorado, had more snow. After initially calling two-hour delays, Santa Fe Public Schools and Santa Fe Community College canceled classes Tuesday.

According to nmroads.com, driving conditions Tuesday were difficult in Santa Fe, Albuquerque and Taos. The Santa Fe Police Department said it responded to 14 minor crashes between Monday night and Tuesday morning. A police spokeswoman said none of the crashes were major and no injuries were reported. The Santa Fe County Sheriff Office responded to 19 crashes, six that resulted in injuries. And New Mexico State Police responded to four minor crashes. According to the National Weather Service, the drought-stricken city of Albuquerque saw around 3 inches of snow Tuesday, ending its longest period between December and February — 43 days — without any precipitation. It also was the longest stretch of consecutive days since 1920 without any measurable precipitation during winter. As of 4:29 p.m. Tuesday, Ski Santa Fe reported receiving 8.5 inches of new snow in the previous 12 hours. At 6 a.m., the Taos Ski Valley reported that it had received 5 inches of new snow. And Angel Fire Resort reported that the cold front brought 11 inches of new snow by early Tuesday afternoon. The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Passenger in fatal police chase files notice of intent to sue Lawyer for man in Jeanette Anaya shooting says client suffered physical injury and emotional distress By Chris Quintana The New Mexican

The passenger in a car involved in a deadly high-speed chase in November is considering a lawsuit against New Mexico State Police and the pursuing officer. A lawyer for Jeremy Muñoz, 34, filed a legal notice Jan. 31 laying out

the grounds for a lawsuit against the officer, Oliver Wilson. The driver of the car, Jeanette Anaya, 39, died from two of the 16 shots Wilson fired into the vehicle. “Miraculously,” Muñoz was not hit, but he did suffer “physical injury and emotional distress,” according to the legal notice.

If Wilson had not chased Anaya, lawyer Mark Donatelli said in the document, Muñoz would not have been a victim to “such a horrifying and dangerous experience.” The Nov. 7 incident generated public debate about the validity of both the chase and the officer’s use of deadly force. The Anaya case is one of six state police officer-involved shootings since October. Dashboard camera footage shows

that Wilson began following Anaya after he thought she had failed to come to a complete stop before turning off St. Francis Drive. After a fiveminute chase, Wilson stopped her using an immobilization technique, in which he nudged her car. He claimed she then drove her car in reverse, heading for his vehicle, although the video does not show that. It does show Wilson on foot, chasing after Anaya’s car and firing shots at her as she was trying to pull away.

District Attorney Angela “Spence” Pacheco said she didn’t believe Anaya had broken any traffic laws before the start of the pursuit. A grand jury in January found the shooting “justified.” Wilson is still employed with the state police, according to an agency spokesman. It is unclear if the internal investigation launched by state police is concluded. Donatelli wrote in the tort claim notice that recent shootings involv-

Assistant DA to make bid for Luján’s seat Political unknown for primary springs surprise on day when hopefuls formally file volunteers and that no money was spent on hiring canvassers to collect these signatures,” Lipshutz said. Gubernatorial candidate Lawrence Rael’s campaign did not respond to emailed questions about his petition signatures. As expected, no one filed to run against Martinez in the GOP primary. In other races, a lively Republican primary could be shaping up for U.S. Senate. Former New Mexico GOP Chairman Allen Weh and former Doña Ana County Republican Party Chairman David Clements are vying for the nomination to run against Democrat Tom Udall. It’s Udall’s first bid for re-election since he won the seat six years ago following the retirement of longtime Republican Sen. Pete Domenici. State Auditor Hector Balderas was the only Democrat seeking to replace King as attorney general. Susan Riedel, a former deputy to Martinez when she was district attorney in Las Cruces, and Albuquerque lawyer James Baiamonte filed for the GOP ballot. Two Albuquerque Democrats, Debra Haaland and Marie Julienne, are seeking the nomination to run against Lt. Gov. John Sanchez. In Albuquerque’s 1st Congressional District, two Republicans are vying to run against Democratic Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham — Richard Priem and Michael Frese. In Southern New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District, Leslie Endean-Singh of La Luz and Carlsbad attorney Roxanne “Rocky” Lara filed for the Democratic nomination to run against incumbent Republican Rep. Steve Pearce. In other statewide offices, Capitan Republican attorney Aubrey Dunn filed to run against Democratic Land Commissioner Ray Powell; Albuquerque Democratic Sen. Tim Keller and Republican Robert Aragon are running for state auditor; and Bernalillo County Clerk Maggie Toulouse Oliver is running as a Democrat for secretary of state against Republican incumbent Dianna Duran. Three Democrats have filed to run for state treasurer: Tim Eichenberg, Patrick Padilla and John Wertheim. Rick Lopez of Santa Fe was the only Republican candidate. For the Court of Appeals, Miles Hanisee of Albuquerque was unopposed for the Republican nomination, and Kerry Kiernan of Albuquerque was the only Democrat.

Staff and wire reports

U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján got a surprise Tuesday when a political unknown filed to challenge him in the Democratic primary. Robert Blanch, an assistant district attorney in Albuquerque, filed with the Secretary of State’s Office to run in the June primary for the seat that Luján first won in 2008. Blanch did not notify the news media about his candidacy. No campaign website or Facebook page could be found for him. Jefferson Byrd, a rancher from Tucumcari, filed as a Republican to run for the 3rd Congressional District seat. Byrd lost to Luján in 2012 for the race to represent the district, which includes most of the northern part of the state, stretching from Farmington to Clovis. The emergence of Blanch was one of the few surprises on filing day. All statewide and federal candidates had to formally file Tuesday for the June primary. Five Democrats officially entered the race to unseat Republican Gov. Susana Martinez. One of the Democratic contenders, Attorney General Gary King, announced that he had gathered more than 10,000 signatures for his nominating petitions. “I will continue to work hard to engage and mobilize citizens in New Mexico in big numbers this year, so we can defeat the big money advantage that Martinez holds thanks to the Koch brothers and her big corporate donors,” King said in a news release. In statewide races, Democrats had to file at least 2,186 signatures, while Republicans had to file at least 2,445, said Ken Ortiz, chief of staff for the secretary of state. Those numbers are based on voter turnout in the 2010 primaries. Martinez filed “more than 6,700” signatures, said her campaign spokesman, Danny Diaz. “Gov. Martinez’s campaign filed the necessary paperwork today for re-election, but did so with no fanfare, as the governor is focused on addressing job creation and education reform in this legislative session,” Diaz told The New Mexican. Of the other Democratic gubernatorial candidates, Santa Fe businessman Alan Webber’s campaign said he filed 7,011 petition signatures. Sen. Linda Lopez of Albuquerque filed 4,196, while Sen. Howie Morales filed “around 3,000” signatures, said his campaign manager, Jon Lipshutz. “However, I would also like to point out that all of our The Associated Press signatures were collected by contributed to this story.

Dorner, a fired Los Angeles police officer, claimed he was unfairly dismissed and vowed revenge against law enforcement officers in a rambling online manifesto. On Feb. 7, 2013, Los Angeles police guarding the Torrance home of a high-profile target named in Dorner’s manifesto opened fire on a pickup truck

they thought was Dorner’s. It actually contained the two women who were delivering newspapers. “This was a tragic cascade of circumstances that led to an inaccurate conclusion by the officers,” the police chief said. The officers had earlier learned that the target’s wife recently had seen Dorner in the neighborhood appearing to case the location. In his report to the commission, the chief said he expected that officers “make every effort that they determine that the truck was in fact Dorner’s.”

Pajarito: County official has positive response Continued from Page B-1 many comments on Pajarito Mountain’s Facebook page, both for and against the idea of turning the property over to the county. Some proposed alternatives, including selling the assets to a for-profit outfit, and many expressed their hopes that it will survive. “Closing Pajarito would be a disaster,” said David Carr, calling it the “biggest quality of life asset” in Los Alamos and the reason he moved there four and a half years ago. To Loretta Quintana, “Pajarito Mountain is a New Mexico gem. If this is what it takes to keep it active, then change is a must.” “Pajarito is a large part of my past and what I am today,” wrote Ken Canada. “I hope you [the current club members] are able to set up a plan that insures continued skiing for the community. Maybe this is the door opening to a revitalization of the club. … The drought will end!” Tony Fox applauded the ski club’s board

“for having the guts to make a terribly difficult decision.” He wrote, “Given the current financial and climate conditions, I’d rather have a ski area that’s run locally … preserving the local feel and history of the mountain.” If the ski area were sold to a private developer, he warned, “the mountain may survive,” but “all control of its future would be lost.” Evan Anderson, who has been skiing at Pajarito since age 3, said, “We fully support any decision that the club makes in order to secure a future in skiing for the [mountain]. I hope the county takes into consideration how important this place is to some of us.” But Michael Wagner warned that if the county takes it over, “The poor and middle class will do the heavy lifting to pay the taxes to support a sport that has priced out those who are financially less fortunate.” And Hunter McDaniel blamed the financial situation on bad management, saying it is time to turn the area over to a for-profit business. “There are many obvious sources of revenue missing from Pajarito that

would have enabled us to stay solvent that for whatever reason the Ski Club has been incapable utilizing,” he said. Pajarito Mountain responded to some of the comments, saying, “People are talking as if this is the death of the ski area. It is not. It is just a discussion about new ownership.” It also said in a posting, “We believe that the club membership would like to keep the area as a public resource rather than going to the private for-profit route.” County Administrator Harry Burgess said last week that the ski area would fit into the county’s overall economic development plan, and he believes the council will be receptive to discussing the idea. “The last thing we want to do is lose a ski area here,” he said. According to Los Alamos Ski Club President Phillip Rae, the fixed cost of operating the ski area is about $1 million a year. Contact Anne Constable at 986-3022 or aconstable@sfnewmexican.com.

Arizona bill expands use of religious rights Lawmakers OK changes to proposal that some fear allows discrimination

Republican Rep. Eddie Farnsworth called the concerns false, saying the changes were needed to protect Arizonans from judges across the country who have allowed lawsuits against people who say their religious beliefs led them to refuse service to someone. He pointed to a New Mexico case where a gay couple was allowed to sue a photographer who refused to document their wedding. “Trust me. It’s coming. This isn’t one isolated case,” Farnsworth said. Josh Kredit, legal counsel for the Center for Arizona Policy, said the proposal is simply an effort to clarify protections already in state law, and it is not discriminatory. “That is fear-mongering and a distraction from what this bill is really intended to be, and that it’s about religious liberty, ensuring that in America, people are free to live and work according to their faith,” he said. Other supporters included the Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative Christian policy group, and the Arizona Catholic Conference.

PHOENIX — An Arizona House panel on Tuesday approved changes to a proposed law beefing up protections for businesses that assert their religious beliefs in refusing service to gays and others, but the changes didn’t placate critics who call the bill a way to allow discrimination.

Alaska road to Valdez to reopen Highway expected to be passable after being blocked for two weeks by avalanches By Dan Joling

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Cars and trucks could be rolling into the city at the end of the trans-Alaska pipeline by Wednesday afternoon, nearly two weeks after avalanches cut off highway access. A spokeswoman for the Alaska Department of Transportation said Tuesday that road crews are nearing completion of snow removal from the last blockage of the Richardson Highway, about 12 miles from Valdez. The highway is projected to open Wednesday afternoon. Hannah Blankenship said damage has mostly been limited to guardrails. Previous avalanches had not damaged the roadbed, and that was the case again. A dozen or so avalanches combined to

close the highway Jan. 24, including two that completely covered the highway and about 10 that partially covered it. Heavy early winter snow was followed in January by unseasonably warm temperatures and then rain. The precipitation trigged avalanches. One major avalanche was in Thompson Pass at Mile 39. That avalanche and the smaller ones were cleared last week. Crews have not removed snow from the downstream side. Officials say collapsing the snow dam could trigger a surge of water and put crews in danger. After the first avalanche, transportation officials had planned to verify the stability of the snowpack on mountainsides and use explosives fired from a 105 mm howitzer to trigger controlled avalanches. “Safety is our first priority,” Blankenship said. The trans-Alaska pipeline is buried in the area and was not affected by the avalanche. A second major avalanche filled Keystone Canyon, which begins at Mile 12 and is roughly 300 feet wide. Snow piled up

on the road 40 to 50 feet high from canyon wall to canyon wall for 1,000 to 1,500 feet. It also dammed the Lowe River, creating a lake that covered 2,500 feet of highway. Excavation crews could not reach the upstream side of the avalanche until Friday after water drained or returned to the river channel. Water dammed behind the avalanche prevented heavy equipment from reaching snow piled on the highway. The highway department also reduced the threat of additional avalanches by dropping explosives from a helicopter in avalanche chutes. About 10 workers at a time with excavators, bulldozers, loaders and a “rock truck,” described as high-volume dump truck with extra-large wheels, have been working in 12-hours shifts around the clock since Friday to remove snow. The department completed stability tests to ensure the highway could support heavy loads. Valdez remained accessible by air and water, and its 4,100 residents took the inconvenience in stride.

Najar keeps playing for Dons as fight continues Judge extends injunction; appeals hearing set for Friday By James Barron The New Mexican

LAS VEGAS, N.M. — Cody Najar will keep playing basketball for West Las Vegas as the appeals process continues for his second hardship transfer petition with the

New Mexico Activities Association. Fourth District Court Judge Matthew Sandoval extended Najar’s temporary restraining order injunction against the NMAA at a Tuesday hearing, but both sides agreed to expedite the appeals process for Najar’s latest appeal that began in January. The NMAA had denied Najar’s petition for a hardship exception after moving from Mora to Las Vegas with his mother, Kristine Najar, in October.

The decision means Najar, a senior, will continue to play for the Dons, who are 14-6 and lead District 2AAA at 4-0, while his petition goes through the appeals process. Also, the NMAA agreed that West Las Vegas would not have to forfeit games in which Najar has or will play. It was all Najar wanted to hear. “I just love to play,” Najar said. “If it’s one game, 10 games. A game’s a game.”

The NMAA Board of Directors will convene for an appeals hearing on Friday, said Mark Geiger, who was the attorney for the NMAA during the hearing. If the appeal is denied, Geiger said the NMAA would forward the appeal to the Public Education Department for a final decision. However, if the appeal is denied again, another court hearing will convene to determine the status of

Cody Najar, seen here in 2013 while at Mora High School, returned to the basketball court Jan. 23 against Raton after winning a temporary restraining order against the New Mexico Activities Association to play at West Las Vegas.

Lobos’ eyes fixed on top conference spot

Snow forces schools to reschedule some games

The New Mexican

It’s been two months since Mother Nature gave Northern New Mexico basketball teams a day off, but it happened Tuesday. Girls basketball games involving Capital, Santa Fe High, St. Michael’s, Santa Fe Preparatory and Pecos were postponed after a snowstorm plowed through the city Tuesday. But already, schools scheduled make-up dates for them. Tuesday’s Capital-Santa Fe High District 2AAAA girls game was rescheduled for Feb. 10 in Toby Roybal Memorial Gymnasium. Also, St. Michael’s will play at Albuquerque Hope Christian in both teams’ District 5AAA opener at 7 p.m. Friday after their game was put on hold. Meanwhile, Santa Fe Preparatory and Pecos will play both ends of their girls/boys doubleheader Wednesday in Louis G. Sanchez Memorial Gymnasium — weather permitting. The National Weather Service is forecasting a 40 percent to 60 percent probability of snow in Santa Fe on Wednesday, with accumulations of up to 3 or 4 inches. That could impact the biggest basketball game in the state — a 5AAA boys matchup between No. 1 Hope Christian and No. 2 St. Michael’s in Albuquerque at 7 p.m. New Mexico’s Cameron Bairstow, right, rebounds over Boise State’s Nick Duncan during the second half of a Jan. 21 game in Albuquerque.

The New Mexican

hen you’ve had the kind of success that The University of New Mexico men’s basketball team has had in recent years, the idea of avoiding a letdown in the middle of the conference season is always a concern. The success of teams past has shown this year’s team the way. The idea of stumbling now is almost out of the question. Sitting just a half-game out of first place as the Mountain West Conference race reaches its halfway point, the Lobos (17-4 overall, 8-1 MWC) host Wyoming (14-7, 5-3) in what amounts to another opportunity for UNM to create further distance between the top-tier teams in the MWC and everyone else just hoping to land an NIT berth.

“We’ll get in trouble if we start looking ahead,” said New Mexico head coach Craig Neal. “My job is to keep them grounded and to keep them focused on the next one. The next one’s Wednesday against a very tough team that can win here. We’ve had two teams come in here and win, and I don’t want to see too many more come in here and win.” Wyoming has had a measure of success in The Pit over the years. More than any other current member of the MWC, in fact. The Cowboys have won 14 times in The Pit and 23 times in Albuquerque since the rivalry between

the schools began in 1950. Lately, though, the Lobos have had their way against Wyoming. They’ve won seven straight and 13 of the past 15. They haven’t lost to the Cowboys at home since 2003. What Neal expects out of this Wyoming team is simply more of the same style he’s seen in recent years: Slower pace, zone defense and patience at the offensive end. He said he expects the Cowboys to employ a zone for most of Wednesday’s game, a fact that will be just a bit harder to do well given the absence of Wyoming guard Josh Adams. Adams was suspended by the MWC on Monday for his involvement in a fight during a game last weekend against Utah State. It’s a big blow for the Cowboys as his 12.1 scoring average is second on the team.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Staffers turn to Twitter for recruiting edge By Steve Megargee The Associated Press

Recruiting is the lifeline of college coaches, and with teenagers using social media like Twitter to communicate, some football staffs have pushed the boundaries of NCAA regulations to reach top high school recruits. National Signing Day is Wednesday, and the stakes are high. The NCAA allows schools to confirm they’re recruiting a specific unsigned prospect, but coaches can’t comment on that recruit’s athletic ability, how he’d contribute to their team or the likelihood that prospect might commit to a particular school. Some coaches and staffers are bending the rules, tweeting thinly veiled references to prospects without naming them. J.R. Sandlin was working as a recruiting analyst at Notre Dame on Dec. 17 when he tweeted, “The DT from KY calling me out. Just wait my man! Just wait! We want you here! Need u to be Irish!” One day later, Sandlin tweeted that “what I like about ‘THE’ 2014 DT from KY is the explosive power he can generate from his lower body. Truly impressive. The guy is a BEAST!” He didn’t name a prospect, but the only defensive tackle from Kentucky being recruited by Notre Dame was Matt Elam of John Hardin High School in Elizabethtown.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Michael Frazier II scored 14 points, highly touted freshman Chris 3 Florida 68 Walker had two crowdMissouri 58 pleasing dunks in his debut, and No. 3 Florida beat Missouri 68-58 on Tuesday night. The Gators won their 14th consecutive game and extended a school record with their 28th straight victory at home. Frazier drained three 3-pointers in a 2-minute span in the second half, giving Florida some breathing room in a tight, back-and-forth game. NO. 8 KANSAS 69, BAYLOR 52 In Waco, Texas, Naadir Tharpe scored 22 points, nine in a go-ahead run before halftime, and Big 12-leading Kansas rebounded from its first league loss. Andrew Wiggins overcame a slow start to score 14 points, while Perry Ellis had 14 points and 10 rebounds for Kansas. Wiggins, the Big 12’s top scoring freshman, finished 4-of-13 shooting and didn’t make his first basket until a half-court shot to beat the buzzer going into halftime.

Cameron Ridley had 12 points and nine rebounds, including one that led to his clinching free throws after a miss by Isaiah Taylor with 7 seconds left, as the Longhorns held on following their win at home against No. 8 Kansas over the weekend. NO. 24 MEMPHIS 101, RUTGERS 69 In Memphis, Tenn., Austin Nichols scored 18 points, and Joe Jackson added 16 points and eight assists for Memphis. The Tigers (17-5, 7-3 American Athletic Conference) hit a season-high 12 3-pointers and shot 59 percent, also a best this season. Nichols was 8 of 9 from the field, and Jackson hit all but one of his seven shots. Memphis, which won its seventh game in the last nine, never trailed and led by as many as 41 points in the second half. Michael Dixon scored 15 points, and Shaq Goodwin added 13 for Memphis. Geron Johnson and Chris Crawford scored 12 each for the Tigers, Crawford grabbing 11 rebounds. Kadeem Jack was the only Scarlet Knight in double figures with 12 points as Rutgers (9-14, 3-7) lost its fifth in the last six.

Dame’s coaches similar advice. “If they’re going to Texas and if they say, ‘I’m heading to Dallas to find some talent’ or whatever, well that’s fine because there are plenty of people in Dallas they could be going to see,” Vining-Smith said. “And my opinion on that is even if we’re recruiting one kid from Dallas, I’m still OK with it because Dallas is a big city and there are lots of kids there that have the talent to play at Notre Dame. “If they’re going to Santa Claus, Ind., and there’s one high school in that town and they say ‘Heading to Santa Claus, Ind.,’ I have a different perspective on that. They’re specifically saying where they’re going and more importantly, it’s a little bit more direct as to who they’re probably going to see.” Compliance officers are policing one another in an informal checks-and-balances effort. They often call one another about tweets that might have crossed a line. Then it’s up to each school’s compliance officer to determine whether the tweet can be defended or needs to be reported. “In the grand scheme of things, if someone called the NCAA to report a violation about Twitter, they would be like, ‘Are you serious? Call us about something about extra benefits or cars being given. Call the schools, because that’s how this process is supposed to work,’ ” ViningSmith said. “You’re really supposed to call each other out.”

Wolves keep pressure on, beat Lions The New Mexican

The Santa Fe Waldorf Wolves are learning how to use pressure to their advantage. The Wolves have turned a 3-7 start into a 7-2 spurt by learning Waldorf 54 to handle full-court Graceway 31 pressure, and that was on display in a 54-31 District 5B boys basketball win over Graceway Christian in Albuquerque on Tuesday night. Waldorf (10-9 overall, 2-0 5B) led 30-18 by halftime when the Lions pressed the Wolves. It didn’t work as Waldorf outscored Graceway Christian 14-6 in the third quarter. “We got the ball down the court and got a lot of good looks at the basket,” said Rob Clifford, the Wolves head coach. “I liked our composure, the methodical way we went about our business. We executed very well.” Augie Ciofalo led Waldorf with 18 points, while Sean Ramsey had 17 points and 14 rebounds. The Lions were led by Michael Charles, who had 11 points. Waldorf travels to Albuquerque to face

Evangel Christian Academy on Thursday with the district lead up for grabs. GIRLS DeserT aCaDeMY 38, saNTa Fe WalDOrF 24 The Lady Wildcats used their best offensive weapon to thwart the Lady Wolves — their defense. Mixing up different presses, Desert Academy (7-13) outscored Waldorf (4-13) 29-16 in the second half to pull away in a nondistrict game at Christian Life Academy. A low-scoring first half led to a 9-8 halftime lead for the Lady Wildcats, but head coach Gerald Medina decided to pick up the pace. “Our defense creates the best opportunities for our offense,” Medina said. “Our press gets better and better. we keep throwing a couple of different presses and it’s been working for us.” It works for Danielle Zimber, who had 16 points to lead Desert Academy. Many of those points off of her work on the defensive end, which leads to easy transition baskets. Franny O’Bryne added 12 points, while Medina singled out Amelia Linett for her effort.

esPañOla ValleY 78, BerNalIllO 55 It sounds like a common theme for any team preparing for a big game. The Lady Sundevils (16-5, 3-1) started off sluggishly against the Lady Spartans, before scoring 30 points in the second quarter to take a 46-25 halftime lead in a 2AAAA game in Edward Medina Gymnasium. Española head coach Ray Romero felt his team was looking ahead to its district rematch against Santa Fe High on Friday before it realized it had to take care of Bernalillo first. “It’s like when you’re about to go on vacation, and they say most accidents happen before you go on it,” Romero said. Ashlynn Trujillo led the way with 21 points, while Alexis Lovato added 20 and Alycia Archibeque scored 17. IN OTHer GaMes: McCurdy beat Questa 51-30 in a nondistrict game in Memorial Gymnasium.

Love, Timberwolves hand Lakers 7th straight loss The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — Kevin Love had 31 points and 17 rebounds for Minnesota, spoiling T’Wolves 109 Steve Nash’s Lakers 99 return for languishing Los Angeles, and leading the Timberwolves to a 109-99 victory Tuesday night that stuck the Lakers with their seventh straight defeat. Kevin Martin scored 14 of his season-high-tying 32 points in the opening 10 minutes to help the Timberwolves start strong, and the NBA’s highest-scoring first-quarter team surged to a 25-point lead midway through the second period. Nash had been sidelined

since Nov. 10 because of nerve problems in his back. The soonto-be-40-year-old two-time league MVP had seven points and nine assists in 25 minutes, about 10 more than he was supposed to play. BUlls 101, sUNs 92 In Phoenix, Carlos Boozer had 19 points and 12 rebounds, and the Bulls snapped the Suns’ fivegame winning streak. The Bulls shot 45 percent from the field and had five players score in double figures, bouncing back from an ugly 99-70 loss at Sacramento on Monday. The Bulls shot 28 percent and were outrebounded 53-30 against the Kings. One night later, it was a completely different story. Jimmy Butler and D.J. Augustin had 18 points apiece for the

Bulls, who won for the fifth straight time in Phoenix. Joakim Noah, who was ejected in the third quarter of the loss at Sacramento, had 14 points and 14 rebounds. PaCers 89, HaWks 85 In Atlanta, David West scored 22 points and Paul George added 18, helping NBA-leading Indiana get the win. The Pacers snapped a 12-game regular-season losing streak in Atlanta while improving the league’s best record to 38-10. Atlanta failed to place a starter in double figures. It had won two straight and five of seven. BOBCaTs 91, WarrIOrs 75 In Oakland, Calif., Al Jefferson had 30 points and 13 rebounds, Gerald Henderson added

17 points and eight rebounds, and Charlotte blew past the Warriors in Kemba Walker’s much-anticipated return. Walker finished with seven points, seven assists and six rebounds after missing the last seven games with a sprained left ankle. He played 33 minutes. The Bobcats controlled the game from the start, going ahead by 18 points late in the third quarter and 22 midway through the fourth. Charlotte, which shot 47.4 percent, held the Warriors to a season-low 31.2 percent shooting. Stephen Curry had 17 points and 11 assists against his hometown team, Klay Thompson scored 12 and Andrew Bogut grabbed 15 rebounds for the Warriors, who have been held below 38 percent shooting in three of their past four games.

There are four current members of the MWC who have never won in The Pit: Boise State, Fresno State, Nevada and San Jose State. The quartet is a combined 0-15. No peer in MWC games: San Diego State head coach Steve Fisher picked up his

300th win with the Aztecs last weekend, extending his run as the all-time leader for wins with a MWC school. He is now 300172 with SDSU and has 484 wins between the Aztecs and his time on the bench while at Michigan. The league’s winningest coach, however, is Utah State’s Stew Morrill with 596. In his 28th season overall, he is 378-138 in his 16 years with the Aggies. Still packing them in: Three teams in the MWC are averaging more than 10,000 fans per home game, led by UNM at 15,151 — roughly 98 percent of capacity. UNLV is second at 12,874 and San Diego State third at 12,414. The Lobos’ 10 home games prior to Wednesday were the second-fewest of any MWC team. Only San Jose State (nine) had played fewer while Colorado State (15) had played the most. Just this week UNLV announced plans to inject upwards of $60 million toward renovations to the 18,500-seat Thomas & Mack Center. Improvements call for upgraded locker rooms, a new sound systems, an

expanded concourse, new entryways, new seats and improvements to the ceiling. Lending a hand: New Mexico guard Kendall Williams leads the MWC in assists at 5.3 per game. He ranks eighth among career leaders in college basketball with 561. He needs just three to pass former Lobo Dairese Gary on the MWC’s all-time list and, at this pace, will need four more games to become the league’s career leader. For now, that mark belongs to to UNLV’s Oscar Bellfield with 582. Cleaning the glass: The top two rebounders in all of college basketball reside in the MWC. UNLV’s Roscoe Smith leads the nation at 11.8 rebounds per game while San Diego State’s Josh Davis is second at 11.6. Boise State’s Ryan Watkins is ninth at 10.8. Also among the nation’s leaders, albeit in a different category, is Lobo Hugh Greenwood. The junior point guard has a 4-to-1 assists to turnover ratio, ranking him second in all of college basketball.

He added that he expected it would be closer to the former, given the circumstances.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL

SDSU may get 9th straight 20-win season One win away from setting new record

The Associated Press

By Bernie Wilson

San Diego State’s head coach Steve Fisher argues a call during the Feb. 1 game against Colorado State in San Diego. DENIS POROY/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

crowd that are here for you,’ ” Fisher said. “I look at games all over the country and I see teams that have got really good programs playing huge games and you see the building threequarters filled, sometimes not that much. So it’s neat to see, obviously winning helps create that. So we’re hoping we can get 20 and then move on beyond that, for sure.” Fisher hopes Josh Davis, SDSU’s leading rebounder with 11.6 per game, can play against Boise State after a bruised knee kept him out of Saturday’s 65-56 home victory against Colorado State. That was Fisher’s 300th victory at SDSU, giving him a record of 300-172 with the Aztecs and 484-254 for his coaching career. The Aztecs have won 18 straight games since their only loss, a 69-60 home defeat to Arizona on Nov. 14. Senior guard Xavier Thames has carried the Aztecs offensively. He leads the team with

18 points per game, 43.3 percent 3-point shooting and 82.7 percent shooting from the free throw line (110 of 133). Thames is playing “at such a high level that he makes everybody else better, because he will be No. 1 on every opponent’s white board: ‘Do this to stop him,’ ” Fisher said. “So you’ve got three sets of eyes on X and it helps somebody else get open for a clean look. But we’ve got good play and important play from a lot of different people, both on offense and on defense.” The Aztecs are one of the nation’s best defensive teams, ranking third in points allowed (56.1) and first in defensive field goal percentage (36.2 percent) and 3-point percentage (26.6). SDSU has struggled on offense to the point that Fisher said he heard someone on talk radio say that it has an NCAA defense but an NIT offense. Fisher counters that by pointing out that the Aztecs have made more free throws

— 371 — than their opponents have taken — 334. “Obviously we want to shoot better from the line, but we’re getting there a lot, and as long as we get Xavier there often enough, I think the percentage will be OK,” said Fisher, whose Aztecs are shooting an MWClow 65.1 percent from the line. “And that’s a big, big piece to what we do — find ways to get to the free throw line.” SDSU’s success has surprised most outsiders, mostly because the Aztecs lost Jamaal Franklin and Chase Tapley from the team that reached the NCAA tournament for the schoolrecord fourth straight season. The Aztecs themselves aren’t surprised. “We knew coming in that we were going to have a great team,” Thames said. “We’ve just been working hard since basically spring time. All the guys stay here over the summer and we’ve been working hard.”

Elway knows pain will linger for Broncos, fans By Arnie Stapleton The Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Three times during his Hall of Fame playing career, John Elway slogged through the rubble of a Super Bowl landslide. Forty-eight hours after Denver’s devastating 43-8 defeat by Seattle in this year’s Super Bowl, the Broncos’ boss was asked how long it took him to get over those big blowouts. “I’m not over them yet,” Elway said. “I just add this one to it.” Elway understands Broncos fans are struggling to come to grips with just how the highestscoring team in league history self-destructed and five-time MVP Peyton Manning managed but a single touchdown throw against the Seahawks. “It was a great year,” Elway said. “We came up short, but it wasn’t due to lack of effort or lack of want-to. We didn’t play very well two days ago. I know that’s what everybody is disappointed about. We’re disappointed about it, players are disappointed. But, it was a hell of a year. We went through a lot of different things, but I’m proud of the team.” A half-hour later, with coach John Fox by his side and the season-ending news conference wrapping up, Elway asked to add one thing because he felt the need to remind everyone that this season wasn’t an utter failure. “Right now the focus is on what happened instead of how we got there and what we did this year, what we went through as a team. But I say that the farther you get away from this, the less you concentrate on just that one game, the more you recognize the whole season and really what we did as a football team and really as

SAN DIEGO — With their next victory, the No. 5 San Diego State Aztecs will have their ninth straight 20-win season — and 10th overall — under coach Steve Fisher. By comparison, the Aztecs had nine 20-win seasons total in the 78 seasons before Fisher arrived. The Aztecs (19-1, 8-0) expect to win a lot more than 20, of course, and could even crack 30 for just the second time in school history. Their first shot at 20 comes Wednesday night at Boise State. It won’t be easy, considering that the Broncos beat the Aztecs at home last year and have lost by 2, 1 and 3 points in their three visits to San Diego since joining the Mountain West. While Fisher said 20-win seasons might not be quite the magic number they used to be, he and the Aztecs will certainly take them, considering how moribund the program was before he took over in 19992000. “I think what it does is it validates the fact that we have a program,” Fisher said Tuesday. “It validates the fact that we continue to get good players. It doesn’t matter whether you have them all returning or none returning. This is a group of guys that are prepared to play and they are capable of playing in the league that we’re in and the schedule that we have, and that attracts the next group of players.” If the Aztecs stumble in Boise, their next shot at No. 20 would be Saturday night against Nevada in front of their raucous home crowd at Viejas Arena. “When you win, everybody wants to take a look at you and when you win in the environment we’re winning in, very few can say, ‘We’re winning all these games, but also come and look at what we have as a

It was a great year. We came “ up short, but it wasn’t due to lack of effort or lack of want-to.” John Elway, Broncos vice president an organization,” Elway said. “And I’ll tell you what, I’m very proud of that.” Sure, changes need to be made, he said, but not the wholesale kind. After the Broncos’ crushing loss to Baltimore in last year’s playoffs, Elway created what Manning called an “uncomfortable atmosphere” around Dove Valley, a reminder of the scar that loss left. It served as the impetus for this 15-4 season that came up just short of a championship. Now, Elway’s promising to navigate this offseason with the notion that this Super Bowl loss will drive Denver to next year’s title game in the Arizona desert, and this time, he hopes

they’ll be better prepared for the big stage. “The goal has not changed and it will not change,” Elway insisted. “We will use this as an experience that we went through, be disappointed that we didn’t play better, but the bottom line is this organization and what [team owner] Pat Bowlen wants from this organization — that has not changed and it will not change. “The bottom line is, we’re going to work as hard as we worked this year, if not harder, and continue to do that with the mindset that we want to be world champions and we’re going to do everything we can to get there.” An hour earlier, players

trudged through the locker room cleaning out their belongings and saying goodbye to one another, some for a couple of months, others for good. “It’s tough, talking about the game and where we go from here,” said wide receiver Eric Decker, soon to be a free agent. “Obviously we’re very disappointed about the results. You can’t change anything, you just learn from it. It’s just as tough today if not tougher than two days ago.” Like Elway, Decker wasn’t sure he’s ever going to really get over this loss. “I don’t know where or when that corner is,” he said. “We were in this similar situation last year, Baltimore, we felt like we had the pieces for a championship season. It sticks with you and motivates you, it never goes away. You learn to fuel your fire from it, to deal with it and to move on with it.” Decker and Knowshon Moreno and Zane Beadles said they prefer to stay in Denver, but they know the Broncos can’t keep all their guys together. Either way, none of them wanted to ponder their own future just like they didn’t want to look back on the Super Bowl and try to figure out where it went wrong. “It’s too fresh to get a good idea,” Beadles said. “As the offseason goes on here there will be plenty of time to reflect back and figure those things out. If I am here we’ve got to come back stronger than ever.” Fox told his players to walk out of the building with their heads held high. “I know there is disappointment,” Fox said. “It will take a while to go away for all of us, but at the end of the day, it was a successful season: 15-4 is not real shabby.”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Some members of the U.S. hockey team heading to the Sochi Games this weekend will be carrying some hightech gear with them that will be kept under wraps. Socks. Very high-tech, performance socks. During the last couple years, there’s been a growing trend among NHL players trying to protect their lower legs from skate blades. Several manufacturers produce these high-tech socks using a variety of material — including Kevlar and copper — to save calf muscles, Achilles tendons and a player’s feet. Detroit equipment manager Paul Boyer has many of his players wearing the socks, and among the Red Wings heading to Sochi include goalie Jimmy Howard playing for the Americans, Henrik Zetterberg with Sweden and Pavel Datsyuk with the Russians. “I’ve got guys jumping into them because of the safety factor,” Boyer said. “If a guy is wearing them and a skate goes across his calf or Achilles tendon, they’re going to be protected. If there’s enough pressure per square inch, the socks can be cut. But a guy will probably have only a mark instead of a cut.” Jason McMaster, equipment manager for the Winnipeg Jets, is even more succinct: “It’s the difference between a player missing little to no games to missing a large portion of the season.” Socks became an issue in recent years with companies switching from knit to thin performance material. McMaster wrote in an email to The Associated Press that equipment managers feel the old knit socks helped protect against such nicks and slices. Four of the Jets will be playing in Sochi: Olli Jokinen (Finland), Ondrej Pavalec and Michael Frolik (Czech Republic) and American Blake Wheeler. McMaster has packed four pairs of each player’s favorite cut-resistant socks with their equipment for the Olympics. “I would like to see every player wear cut resistant socks,” McMaster said. “Anything to keep the players

healthy is very important us. The socks may not stop all injuries, but if you can minimize the severity of an injury, you have helped keep the player on the ice.” Getting players to try the high-tech socks has been challenging. By the time players reach the NHL or Olympic level, they’re used to the equipment they’ve been wearing for years and don’t want to change. Material strong enough to fend off a skate blade also tends to build up heat inside the sock, making for a comfort issue. Sabres coach Ted Nolan, also coaching the Latvian National Team, said some players didn’t even wear socks back in the day. His son, Los Angeles Kings center Jordan Nolan, does wear cut-resistant socks. “Skates are pretty sharp,” Nolan said. When Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson had his left Achilles tendon sliced by Pittsburgh forward Matt Cooke’s left skate Feb. 13, 2013, players went to equipment managers asking for a sock to protect themselves. There are still some holdouts. Buffalo defenseman Henrik Tallinder, who will be playing for Sweden, doesn’t wear the cut-resistant socks but is open to a change. “If you see how Karlsson got cut, I have a hard time seeing him not getting cut with a non-cut sock, you know what I mean,” Tallinder said. His Buffalo teammate Zemgus Girgensons wears them after being handed a pair when he joined Rochester in the AHL after being drafted in 2012. He once tested the socks to check how well they protect against sharp objects, and he finally punched through the material because he said he couldn’t tell a difference from his old socks either from the look or feel. “With a lot of pressure you can cut it,” Girgensons said. “But it’s like armor.” The center will be wearing his cut-resistant socks in Sochi with the Latvian National Team. “That’s a smart thing to do because you saw Karlsson got cut,” Girgensons said. “That’s just one way to avoid unnecessary injury.”

t’s a tough measure for any seasoned chef to open a restaurant in 12 weeks, but that’s exactly what the inaugural class of professional students at the Santa Fe Culinary Academy accomplished this week. With a menu that features pork ribs with cole slaw and cornbread, salmon cakes with blue potato chips, lamb tagine with couscous and pineapple upside down cake, the five chefs-in-training welcomed their first lunch guests Tuesday as they opened the doors to The Guesthouse, the student-run restaurant inside the 5,000-square-foot academy. “It’s a big deal for us, as students, to open a restaurant. It’s a massive learning experience,” student Brian Tomlinson said last month before the restaurant’s soft opening Jan. 22. In the months leading up to Tuesday’s official opening, the students completed a fourweek, basic-cooking boot camp in September, followed by an eight-week, hands-on course in pastry, garde-manger and a la carte fundamentals. Now, as the students enter the program’s second phase, or rotation, their skills are being put to the test in a real-world atmosphere — and they’re ready for that challenge. “I feel more than prepared to open this restaurant,” student Matthew Hartman said. “We’re giving the people of Santa Fe an opportunity to experience a new style of cuisine as well as twists on some classic recipes.” Tomlinson, who made a Tuscan white bean and kale soup for the soft opening, echoed the same confidence, saying, “It’s going to go great. I feel like we’ll have the food part down pretty good, and we’re ready to embrace and tackle whatever we’re given.” For the school’s executive chef and cofounder, Rocky Durham, the opening of The Guesthouse marks a key milestone for the academy, which was founded in 2012 as a school designed to train a new generation of restaurateurs and culinary professionals. “This is one of those thresholds we imagined when we started designing the academy from the ground up,” Durham said. “Now that it’s occurring, it’s just hugely exciting.” Of the students’ talent, Durham said, “We’re fortunate to have this caliber of individuals in the program.” In that way, he said, “We’re ahead of where we imagined we’d be. It feels great to be opening with a menu like this, and the students are confident and excited. They’re probably more nervous about waiting tables than anything else.” School co-founder Tanya Story, who serves as the academy’s executive pastry chef and campus director, said the restaurant will act as a proving ground for the students to showcase “the skills they’ve learned so far from the boot camp and first rotation,” while allowing them to “expand their knowledge.” Like the four-phased program itself, The Guesthouse operates on a series of rotations,

where students alternate between jobs to manage all aspects of the restaurant, from front-of-the-house to back-of-the-house operations, Durham said. “Some of us will be waiting on tables and some of us will be in the kitchen cooking, and then we’ll be rotating,” student Amy Leilani said. “Part of the program is learning about customer service as well.” To prepare for service, the class took lessons in seating guests and setting tables and held a two-week soft opening. “That part of the rotation gave us time to figure out many of the quirks of the restaurant business,” Leilani said. While the students will be responsible (and graded) for operating the entire restaurant from front to back, Durham said he and Story will be on hand to assist the class.

“We’ll be a safety net for them — but they’re ultimately doing it by themselves,” Durham said. “It’s like when you’re teaching someone to ride a bicycle — even though you may not be holding on the bicycle anymore, you still run alongside them.” As for the menu, Durham said it will constantly evolve and feature a multitude of cuisines from week to week. For now, however, he said it features more basic dishes. “We’re starting off with menus that are a little more rudimentary, but as we progress, they’ll get progressively more intricate and complex.” Students, on the other hand, described some of the dishes as “technically advanced.” They point to Leilani’s interpretation of a Cobb salad. Her salad, dubbed the Cobb 61, infuses classic Cobb salad flavors with cryovac technology and galantine-style chicken — chicken that’s been skinned, boned, stuffed and served in its own jelly or aspic. “People can expect those types of spins with modern technology and flare,” Hartman said. When it comes to prices, Durham said diners would be hard-pressed to find a better deal anywhere else in town. At the high end, there are the pork ribs for $10; on the lower end, there’s the French onion soup for $5. “We find that to be really affordable, and we’re really hoping that this [restaurant] becomes a secret gem for the people of Santa Fe. We want the town to be our guest,” Durham said. The Guesthouse will be open for lunch service until March 13. By April, the students will have transitioned into the program’s third rotation, which is geared toward dinner service. “By that time,” Story said, “the students are going to be so much more comfortable with working the line, and they’ll have learned more advanced techniques.”

There are bakers, and there are cooks. It takes a chemist’s love of precision to be a baker. Me? I’m a cook. However, I do love to bake bread. In fact, I’ve been on a bread-baking kick for several years, experimenting with everything from the old-fashioned, knead-itup method to neo-hippy, grow-your-own-wild-yeastbefore-you-even-start-mixing-the-dough recipes. Recently, however, I learned a method so wonderful that my experimental wanderings may be over. The breakthrough occurred when I took a class with the legendary Jim Lahey, founder of Sullivan Street Bakery in New York and the man behind a sensational recipe for no-knead, slow-rise, no-fuss bread. Maybe just reading about it left me skeptical. Could baking bread really be as easy as he suggested? Yes, it can. I went home after the class and adjusted his basic formula to my liking, adding extra whole-wheat flour, toasted walnuts and rosemary. Otherwise, I followed his instructions, weighed the ingredients, mixed them together and turned out an attractive, delicious loaf of bread. One of the ways to ensure your success here is by measuring your flour by weight, not volume. When you scoop and measure flour by volume — such as using a measuring cup — the amount of flour you get each time can vary widely, sometimes by several ounces. The discrepancy is due to how tightly or loosely the flour is packed. A few ounces may not sound like much, but it can make a big difference in baked goods. That’s why I recommend investing in a good kitchen scale if you’re going to bake bread. The one I own, which registers both ounces and grams, has turned out to be useful for any number of kitchen tasks. And please remember: This is not your grandmother’s bread, or at least it’s not your grandmother’s method of making bread. So don’t be thrown off by the wetness of the dough (it’s very wet), the temperature of the water added (it’s cool, not warm), or the temperature at which the dough first rises (it’s room temp, not warmer). The only down side to this recipe is the need to plan ahead. Even though mixing the dough takes no time at all (30 seconds), you have to let it rise for at least 12, and preferably 18, hours. Then, after you’ve shaped it into a loaf (another 30 seconds), it needs to rise for yet another hour or two. Finally, it takes 45 to 60 minutes for the bread to bake, and it has to cool completely before you can eat it. NO-KNEAD WALNUT-ROSEMARY BREAD Total time: 14 hours (20 minutes active), makes 1 loaf (10 servings) ½ cup (50 grams) coarsely chopped walnuts 2 cups (266 grams) bread flour 1 cup (133 grams) whole-wheat flour 1¼ teaspoons (8 grams) table salt ¾ teaspoon (2 grams) instant or rapid-rise yeast 2 tablespoons (6 grams) chopped rosemary 1⅓ cups (350 grams) cool water (55 degrees to 65 degrees) Additional flour, wheat bran or cornmeal Preparation: Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the walnuts in a shallow baking dish, then place in the oven on the middle shelf to toast 10 to 12 minutes. Set aside to cool. Once the nuts are cooled, in a medium bowl stir them together with both flours, the salt, yeast and rosemary. Add the water and stir briefly with a wooden spoon or your hands, just until the dough is barely mixed, about 30 seconds. The dough should be quite wet and tacky. If it is not, add 1 to 2 tablespoons more water. Cover the bowl, and let it rise at room temperature for 12 to 18 hours, or until it is more than double in bulk. After the dough has risen, generously sprinkle a work surface with flour and gently, with the help of a plastic bench scraper, scoop out the dough onto the counter. Working very quickly, with floured hands, fold the dough inward to the center on all sides to form a seam. Turn the dough over to form a round with the seam on the bottom. Generously sprinkle a clean kitchen towel towel with flour. Lay the towel flat on the counter and set the dough on top, seam down. Sprinkle the top of the dough lightly with flour and loosely fold the ends of towel over the dough. Let the dough rise in a warm place for 1 to 2 hours, or until almost doubled in bulk. You will know it is ready when you poke the dough and it holds your imprint. If the dough bounces back, it is not ready. About 30 minutes before you think the dough is ready, heat the oven to 475 degrees. Put a rack in the lower third of the oven, and place a covered 4½- to 5½-quart casserole dish in the oven to heat. When the dough has risen, carefully remove the casserole dish from the oven and remove the lid. With the aid of the tea towel, flip the dough gently, seam side up, into the casserole, put the lid on the casserole and return it to the oven. Bake for 30 minutes. Carefully remove the lid and bake until the bread has browned nicely, another 15 to 30 minutes. Remove the casserole dish from the oven and use a spatula or dish towel to carefully transfer the bread to a rack to cool completely before slicing.

AVANA — When President Barack Obama reinstated “people-to-people” travel to Cuba in 2011, the idea was that visiting Americans would act as cultural ambassadors for a U.S. constantly demonized in the island’s official media. Two and a half years later, a survey shared exclusively with The Associated Press suggests the trips are not only improving Cubans’ views of Americans. They are also changing U.S. travelers’ opinions of the Caribbean nation for the better, and dimming their view of Washington policies that have long sought to pressure Cuba’s Communist leaders. “I think U.S.-Cuban relations should be open. People should be talking to each other. People should be sharing,” said Ellen Landsberger, a 62-year-old New York obstetrician who recently visited on a people-to-people tour. “We have this tiny little island that is no threat to the U.S. that we’re isolating from the world,” she said. “It doesn’t make sense.” There’s surely significant self-selection among people-to-people travelers; supporters of a hard-line policy against Cuba are unlikely to consider such a tour. And the people who run the trips tend to be more or less sympathetic toward Cuba, or at least to the idea of easing or lifting the 52-year-old U.S. embargo, which could potentially be a boon to their business. Still, the results of the multiple-choice survey by Friendly Planet Travel, a company based in suburban Philadelphia that promotes legal tours of Cuba, are eye-catching. Three-quarters said they were drawn by curiosity about life in a nation that has been off limits to most Americans for decades. Before travel, the most prevalent view of Raul Castro’s government was “a repressive Communist regime that stifles individuality and creativity,” 48 percent of respondents

said. That fell to 19 percent after their visits, and the new most-popular view, held by 30 percent of respondents, became the slightly more charitable “a failing government that is destined to fall.” Most striking, 88 percent said the experience made them more likely than before to support ending the embargo against Cuba. Peggy Goldman, president of Friendly Planet Travel, said visitors are surprised at how hard it is to find many goods, even something as basic as an adhesive bandage. Some leave Cuba blaming U.S. policy for the shortages — as the Cuban government does constantly, although analysts also point to a weak, inefficient and corruptionridden economic system as a key cause of scarcity. “In day-to-day life, it’s so difficult for the

average Cuban. When the travelers go and they see that, and they experience it themselves, it makes sense that they say [the embargo] doesn’t make sense,” Goldman said. “It hasn’t toppled the government in all these years. We need to try a different way.” Goldman acknowledged that her informal poll, which surveyed 423 Americans who visited Cuba in December, was not scientific. But others in the industry tell a similar story. “Some people go back and say they want to write letters to their senators,” said Jeff Philippe, a guide who has taken 34 groups to the island in just over a year for Insight Cuba, which puts on people-to-people tours for Americans. “I’ve had several people say to me, ‘I want to make this my personal mission to end the embargo.’ ”

NEW YORK — Spray-painted at night on a Lower East Side handball court, the Howard the Duck mural showed the comic book character peeking from behind a trash can with the words: “Graffiti is a art, And if art is a crime, Let God forgive all.” That 1978 work helped propel the illicit graffiti art movement out of the subway and into the mainstream. So it’s only fitting that a canvas re-creation of that mural (the original was painted over around 1988) is a part of a major exhibition on graffiti art that opened Tuesday at the Museum of the City of New York. “It was the shot heard around the world,” said its creator Lee Quinones, also known by his tag LEE. “This was a movement that needed a visual manifesto. I wanted to bring that conversation that was so elusive in the subways above ground, to a context almost similar to a museum.” Only 18 at the time, Quinones became known among his generation for covering a 10-car subway train. He and an artist named Fab 5 Freddy were among the first to earn gallery recognition with a 1979 exhibition in Rome. What makes the New York City as Canvas exhibition unique is that it focuses only on works from the city that were collected over the years by East Village artist Martin Wong, who befriended and mentored many of the graffiti artists, including Quinones, and promoted their once-renegade art form. Wong’s collection of more than 300 such works was donated to the Museum of the City of New York before his death in 1999. About 150 are in the exhibition, which runs through Aug. 24. In addition to the Howard the Duck oil canvas, which Quinones made for Wong, other highlights include a compilation of ink-drawn tags collected by Wicked Gary, founder of the first graffiti writing club, the Ex-Vandals, and a member of a collective of writers called the United Graffiti Artists who were the first to exhibit their work in a gallery setting. Graffiti exploded in New York in the 1970s because of the subway — an expansive canvas for the young renegade artists. The seminal 1983 documentary Style Wars and other media attention contributed to its spread beyond New York. But only a handful of the largely teenage graffiti artists were “doing what we would call masterpieces, blanketing whole sides of trains,” said the exhibit’s curator, Sean Corcoran. They included DAZE (Chris Ellis), CRASH (John Matos), FUTURA 2000 (Leonard Hilton McGurr) and LEE — all successful artists today — who succeeded in connecting the subculture to a broader audience by virtue of their artistic talent. Wong “had the foresight to scoop all this stuff up when no one else in New York was thinking about it seriously,” said Sacha Jenkins, a writer and filmmaker who has written extensively on the graffiti movement. As evidence of graffiti’s growing credibility as an art form, Corcoran pointed to the public interest in the elusive British street artist Banksy and the outcry over the recent white-wash of a New York City’s mecca to aerosol art known as 5Pointz. “Graffiti-influenced art is on the verge of a new breakthrough,” Quinones said. “We’re on the crest of the wave. There’s a number of artists, and not necessarily those who painted on subways” who are embracing the style and being signed by blue-chip galleries.

Anne Frank’s marbles to go on display in Rotterdam AMSTERDAM — Shortly before Anne Frank and her family went into hiding from the Nazis, she gave some of her toys to a non-Jewish girlfriend who lived in the building next door. The Anne Frank House Museum says the toys have now been recovered, and Anne’s tin of marbles will go on display Wednesday. The neighbor, Toosje Kupers, kept the marbles along with a tea set and a book. It was only when Kupers, 83, was moving last year that she thought to mention the marbles to the museum. Kupers said before the Frank family left the square they both lived on, Anne approached her for a favor. “ ‘I’m worried about my marbles, because I’m scared they might fall into the wrong hands,’ ” Kupers said Anne told her. “ ‘Could you keep them for me for a little while?’ ” Anne died of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in March 1945. Her diary was recovered and published after the war by her father, Otto, the only member of the family to survive. “So many people know about Anne Frank because of the diary, which was written under such unusual circumstances,” museum head of collections Teresien da Silva said. “[But] the marbles are a reminder that she was just a little girl.” The Associated Press
