New SFPS calendar keeps short Fridays By Robert Nott
The New Mexican
Although parents have complained that Santa Fe Public Schools’ early release time on Fridays for elementary schools costs students too much instruction time and forces families to find day care, the school board heeded teachers’ pleas to keep the schedule to allow them more time for planning.
Under the 2014-15 and 2015-16 calendars that board members approved Tuesday, students will start a few days later, spring break will come earlier and schools will operate a total of 176 days. The new calendar aligns the district’s semesters and breaks with many other districts in the state, which makes it easier to schedule athletic and artistic competitions and events.

Six days to honor and heal The Wall That Heals, a half-size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, comes to Santa Fe
Putin, Crimean leaders sign draft treaty quickly rejected by U.S., European nations By RoBeRt Nott
ome years back, Arturo Canales flew to Washington, D.C., to see the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. But before he could even approach the rolling blackgranite structure or rub his fingers across the carved names of the more than 58,000 Americans who perished in the war, Canales, a veteran of the conflict himself, was overcome with emotion. He hailed a cab to the airport and flew right back to Santa Fe. Ron Barela, another Vietnam veteran from Santa Fe, understands how Canales feels. The first time Barela went to the Wall he was so riddled with feelings of angst and sadness that he had to stop and sit down.

“I’ve since talked to vets who don’t want to see it. They’re afraid of what it will bring back,” he said. Such is the power of the Wall, a sobering tribute to the American servicemen and servicewomen who lost their lives in the conflict and the thousands who came home and were often forgotten. But many New Mexicans who served or lost loved ones in the war have never visited the memorial. They’ll have a chance of sorts next week when The Wall That Heals — a half-size replica of the actual Wall — arrives in Santa Fe for six days. It will be located at Fort Marcy Ballpark.
The New York Times
MOSCOW — A defiant President Vladimir Putin claimed Crimea as a part of Russia on Tuesday, reversing what he described as a historic mistake made by the Soviet Union 60 years ago and brushing aside international condemnation that could leave Russia isolated for years to come. Within minutes of delivering a passionate speech to Russia’s political elite, Putin cemented his pledge by signing a draft treaty with Crimean leaders to make the strategic Black Sea peninsula part of Russia. The events unfolded two days after Crimeans voted in a disputed referendum to break away from Ukraine. While the treaty signed Tuesday still needs parliamentary approval, that is regarded as a formality.

Although Gov. Susana Martinez this week raised the possibility of calling a special session to pass new economic incentives to lure Tesla Motors to build a battery plant here, New Mexico already has had one failed courtship with the electric car company. Martinez on Monday was asked by a reporter about the possibility of a special session to consider incentives for the proposed 10 million-squarefoot plant. “If it’s necessary, we are open to whatever we can do that would even include that sort of thing. I’ve had legislators say, ‘If it’s necessary, we’ll come [to a special session],’ ” she told the Albuquerque Journal. Tesla has said New Mexico is one of four states — the others are Texas, Arizona and Nevada — it is considering to house a “Gigafactory” that would produce lithium-ion batteries for the company’s vehicles. The plant would create an estimated 6,500 jobs. But back in late February 2007, there was no talk of New Mexico competing with anyone for Tesla’s planned $35 million auto manufacturing plant. At a news conference with then-Gov. Bill Richardson, Tesla CEO Elon Musk

Health law doesn’t ensure access to top cancer centers By Ricardo Alonso-Saldivar
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Some of America’s best cancer hospitals are off-limits to many of the people signing up for coverage under the nation’s new health care program. Doctors and administrators say they’re concerned. So are some state insurance regulators. An Associated Press survey found examples coast to coast. Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is excluded by five out of eight insurers in Washington’s insurance exchange. MD Anderson Cancer Center says it’s in less than half of the plans in the Houston area. Memorial Sloan-Kettering is included by two of nine insurers in New York City and has out-of-network

Candidates vie for Afghan women’s vote
Only three were still alive to receive recognition for valor

But security concerns have marred their participation in previous elections. In areas of the country still controlled by the Taliban, women have been threatened with violence if they vote. In 2009, many Afghan women registered but then gave their voting cards to male relatives, who ended up casting multiple ballots as polling officials and police conveniently looked away — one of many forms of fraud that tarnished Karzai’s reelection.
UNITED NATIONS — Politically fueled ethnic violence in South Sudan since mid-December has led to the brutal killing and abuse of thousands of civilians and sparked a government campaign to vilify the United Nations and harass U.N. personnel, the U.N. peacekeeping chief said Tuesday. Herve Ladsous told the U.N. Security Council that despite a Jan. 23 cease-fire agreement, forces loyal to President Salva Kiir and rebel soldiers loyal to dismissed former vice president Riek Machar “continue to prioritize the pursuit of military gains over talks towards a comprehensive political settlement.” Fighting that broke out Dec. 15 among presidential guards in the capital Juba quickly spread across the country and took on ethnic dimensions between the dominant Dinka tribe who support Kiir and the Nuer tribe loyal to Machar. Ladsous said prelimiary inquiry reports indicate that atrocities and very severe human rights violations were committed by both sides in the conflict.
Syria told to suspend diplomatic activities in U.S. WASHINGTON — The United States on Tuesday formally notified the Syrian government that it must suspend operations at its embassy in Washington and at its two consulates in Michigan and Texas, the State Department said. The move stops short of a formal break of relations, but it bars Syrian envoys here from carrying out diplomatic and consular duties. The move comes on the third anniversary of the conflict in Syria that has killed an estimated 140,000 people. The U.S. Embassy in Damascus was closed in February 2012 as security in the country deteriorated.
MOSCOW — An Islamic militant group in Russia’s North Caucasus is reporting the death of its leader, who had threatened to attack the Sochi Olympics and was one of Russia’s most wanted men. The death of Chechen warlord Doku Umarov has been reported previously, but this appears to be the first time by the organization he headed. The Caucasus Emirate announced the “martyrdom” of Umarov in a statement posted Tuesday on the website of Kavkaz Center, which serves as a mouthpiece for Islamic militant groups. No cause was given. Chechnya’s Kremlin-backed leader had reported Umarov’s death in January, a month before the Olympics, but his claim was not verified. The ITAR-Tass news agency quoted Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov saying that Tuesday’s announcement showed he was right that Umarov died in a special operation.
Report: Pentagon must focus on insider threat WASHINGTON — Threats to Defense Department personnel and facilities increasingly are coming from trusted insiders, and to defeat them the Pentagon must beef up security from within, according to several reviews triggered by last year’s Washington Navy Yard killings. The reviews say the shooting by a Navy contractor could have been prevented if the company that employed Aaron Alexis told the Navy about problems it was having with him in the months before he gunned down 12 civilian workers. An independent study and an internal review ordered after the September 2013 massacre and released Tuesday said the Pentagon must expand its focus beyond defending against external threats. More attention must be paid, they concluded, to defending against threats from inside the workforce.

SEATTLE — A federal official says witnesses reported hearing unusual noises from a KOMO-TV news helicopter before it crashed Tuesday, killing two people on board and injuring a third on the ground. The National Transportation Safety Board’s Dennis Hogenson says investigators are examining all possibilities as they look for what caused the crash. He says witnesses also reported seeing the aircraft rotate before it hit the ground. Hogenson says investigators are working to document the scene and clear the wreckage. A preliminary report is expected in five days, followed by a fuller report with a probable cause in up to a year.
Rauner wins GOP nod to run for Illinois governor CHICAGO — Businessman Bruce Rauner has defeated three veteran lawmakers to win the Republican nomination for Illinois governor. In his first bid for public office, Rauner on Tuesday topped state Sens. Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard and Treasurer Dan Rutherford. The wealthy venture capitalist from Winnetka in November will face Democratic governor Pat Quinn, who had a lesser-known primary challenger. Rauner ran on a promise to “shake up” Springfield and the “career politicians” and special interests he says helped create Illinois’ financial problems. A virtual unknown when he got in the race, Rauner spent more than $14 million, including about $6 million of his own money. Much of the money went toward TV ads that helped him increase his name recognition and fight back against attacks from organized labor. Rauner says he would model his governorship after those of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and former Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels. The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — They were heroes who didn’t get their due. On Tuesday, 24 mostly ethnic or minority U.S. soldiers who performed bravely under fire in three of the nation’s wars finally received the Medal of Honor that the government concluded should have been awarded a long time ago. The servicemen — Hispanics, Jews and African Americans — were identified following a congressionally mandated review to ensure that eligible recipients of the country’s highest recognition for valor were not bypassed due to prejudice. Only three of the 24 were alive for President Barack Obama to drape the medals and ribbons around their necks. “Today we have the chance to set the record straight,” Obama said. The three surviving recipients — Vietnam veterans Jose Rodela, Melvin Morris and Santiago Erevia — received a prolonged standing ovation at Obama’s side, their faces set in somber acknowledgement of the honor. Rodela, now of San Antonio, was a 31-year-old company commander of a Special Forces strike group on Sept. 1, 1969, in Phuoc Long Province, Vietnam, when he and his company of Cambodian soldiers whom he had helped recruit came under fire from North Vietnamese Army troops. According to his Medal of Honor citation and supporting documents, the battle lasted 18 hours and 11 men in his company were killed and 33 others wounded. Morris of Cocoa, Fla., was a staff sergeant during combat operations on Sept. 17, 1969, near Chi Lang, South Vietnam. According to the Pentagon, Morris led soldiers across enemy lines to retrieve his team sergeant, who had been killed. He singlehandedly destroyed an enemy force hidden in bunkers that had pinned down his battalion. Erevia, also of San Antonio, was cited for courage while serving as a radio-telephone operator on May 21, 1969, during a search-and-clear mission near Tam Ky, South Vietnam. He was a specialist 4 when his battalion tried to take a hill fortified by Viet Cong and North Vietnam Army soldiers. The Pentagon says he singlehandedly silenced four Viet Cong bunkers. Among those who received a posthumous medal was Leonard Kravitz, an assistant machine gunner in the Korean War who is credited with saving his platoon by providing cover for retreating troops. He died in the attack. He is the uncle of singer and actor Lenny Kravitz, who attended Tuesday’s ceremony.

KABUL, Afghanistan — The candidate strode down the aisle separating hundreds of male and female supporters at a campaign rally in Kabul. She shook hands with the women filling the chairs to her right. To the men on the other side, she simply nodded. Habiba Sarabi is the most prominent woman running on a ticket in the April 5 election to choose a successor to President Hamid Karzai. Sarabi once served as Afghanistan’s first female governor, and her current bid to become Afghanistan’s first female vice president is part of an effort to get out the women’s vote as candidates scramble for every ballot. Women “can affect the transition, the political transition,” she said. But Sarabi, a 57-year-old former governor of Bamiyan province, still must conform to cultural norms in this deeply conservative Islamic society. Her challenge highlights the difficulties facing Afghan women who worry about losing hard-won gains as international combat forces prepare to withdraw from the country by the end of this year. Afghan women were granted the right to vote in the constitution adopted after the U.S.-led coalition toppled the Taliban regime in late 2001.

MALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT 370
What if missing plane is never found? By Kristen Gelineau and Nick Perry The Associated Press
WELLINGTON, New Zealand — The plane must be somewhere. But the same can be said for Amelia Earhart’s. Ten days after Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared with 239 people aboard, an exhaustive international search has produced no sign of the Boeing 777, raising an unsettling question: What if the airplane is never found? Such an outcome, while considered unlikely by many experts, would certainly torment the families of those missing. It would also flummox the airline industry, which will struggle to learn lessons from the incident if it doesn’t know what happened. While rare nowadays, history is not short of such mysteries — from the most famous of all, American aviator Earhart, to planes and ships disappearing in the so-called Bermuda Triangle. Part of the problem, said Andrew Thomas, the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Transportation Security, is that airline systems are not as sophisticated as many people might think. A case in point, he said, is that airports and airplanes around the world use antiquated radar tracking tech-
nology, first developed in the 1950s, rather than modern GPS systems. A GPS system might not have solved the mystery of Flight 370, which disappeared March 8 while flying from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing. But it would probably have given searchers a better read on the plane’s last known location, Thomas said. “There are lots of reasons why they haven’t changed, but the major one is cost,” he said. “The next-generation technology would cost $70 billion to $80 billion.” Experts say the plane’s disappearance will likely put pressure on airlines and governments to improve the way they monitor planes, including handoff procedures between countries. And if the plane is never found, liability issues will be a huge headache for courts. With no wreckage, it would be difficult to determine whether the airline, manufacturers or other parties should bear the brunt of responsibility. The families of the missing, of course, would face the most painful consequences of a failed search. It has been nearly 50 years since a plane carrying more than two dozen people vanished without a trace, according to a list of unexplained aviation disappearances tracked by the Flight Safety Foundation.
Need a Room Addition?
An Argentine military plane carrying 69 people disappeared in 1965 and has never been found. Earhart, the first female pilot to cross the Atlantic Ocean, vanished over the Pacific with Fred Noonan during an attempt to circumnavigate the globe. Seven decades later, people are still transfixed. Theories range from her simply running out of fuel and crashing to her staging her own disappearance and secretly returning to the U.S. to live under another identity. There is also an ongoing fascination with the Bermuda Triangle, where several ships and planes disappeared, including a squadron of five torpedo bombers in 1945. Studies have indicated the area is no more dangerous than any other stretch of ocean. “We all expect we’re going to find this plane and the chances are probably pretty good that we’ll find something. But you know, I think everyone thought that about Amelia Earhart as well,” said Phaedra Hise, a pilot and author of Pilot Error: The Anatomy of a Plane Crash. “We know there’s a chance that we may never find out what happened. Which is a little scary, isn’t it?”

Crimea: Putin says West forced his hand
Continued from Page A-1
Continued from Page A-1 “Crimea has always been an integral part of Russia in the hearts and minds of people,” Putin declared in his address, delivered in the chandeliered St. George’s Hall in the Grand Kremlin Palace before hundreds of members of parliament, governors and others. His remarks, which lasted 47 minutes, were interrupted repeatedly by thunderous applause, standing ovations and chants of “Russia, Russia.” Some in the audience wiped tears from their eyes. Reaching deep into Russian and Soviet history, Putin said he did not seek to divide Ukraine any further, but vowed that he would protect Russia’s national security from what he described as Western, and particularly American, actions that had left Russia feeling cornered. He spoke as he has often in the past of the humiliations Russia has suffered in a world with one dominant superpower — from the NATO air war in Kosovo in 1999 against Moscow’s Serbian allies to the one in Libya that toppled Moammar Gadhafi in 2011 on what he called the false pretense of a humanitarian intervention. Putin dipped into deep wells of emotion, starting with the 10th-century baptism of Prince Vladimir, whose conversion to Orthodox Christianity transformed the kingdom then known as Rus, to the collapse of the Soviet Union, which left many Russians feeling they had been stripped of their nation overnight. “Millions of Russians went to bed in one country and woke up abroad,” he said. “Overnight, they were minorities in the former Soviet republics, and the Russian people became one of the biggest — if not the biggest — divided nation in the world.” Assailing the West for what he has said were its broken promises, he said: “They cheated us again and again, made decisions behind our back, presenting us with completed facts. That’s the way it was with the expansion of NATO in the east, with the deployment of military infrastructure at our borders. They always told us the same thing: ‘Well, this doesn’t involve you.’ ” In a deepening clash of wills, Western reaction was swift. The White House condemned the move, which it said it would not recognize. Britain’s foreign secretary, William Hague, told parliament on Tuesday that the crisis in Ukraine “is the most serious test of European security in the 21 century so far.” “No amount of sham and perverse democratic process or skewed historical references can make up for the fact that this is an incursion into a sovereign state and a land grab of part of its territory with no respect for the law of that country or for international law,” he said. German Chancellor Angela Merkel firmly rejected Moscow’s

absorption of Crimea, a position she said was widely supported by international organizations including the United Nations and the European Council. “The so-called referendum breached international law, the declaration of independence which the Russian president accepted yesterday was against international law, and the absorption into the Russian Federation is, in our firm opinion, also against international law,” Merkel told reporters in Berlin. U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, in Warsaw, Poland, on Tuesday in a show of support for countries unnerved by the Russian incursion into Ukraine rebutted Putin’s assertions. “Russia has offered a variety of arguments to justify what is nothing more than a land grab,” he said. “But the world has rejected those arguments.” While Western sanctions in response to Sunday’s referendum on independence in Crimea had been relatively mild, U.S. officials had already made clear they would ratchet up the pressure if Putin went ahead with annexation. The Obama administration is expected to react quickly with a new round of sanctions targeting Russian government officials, the Russian arms industry and Russians who work on behalf of government officials, the latter called “Russian government cronies” by a senior U.S. official. Putin brushed aside concerns about economic sanctions and diplomatic isolation, saying the West had forced Russia’s hand. By supporting the political uprising that toppled Ukraine’s president, Viktor Yanukovych, the United States and Europe crossed “a red line,” Putin said, forcing him to act to protect Crimea’s population from what he called “Russophobes and neo-Nazis” that had seized control in an illegal coup abetted by foreigners. “If you press a spring too hard,” he said, “it will recoil.” If there had been any doubt before Tuesday, Putin made it clear that within what he considers his sphere of interest he would not be cowed by international pressure. And the speed of his moves in Crimea, redrawing an international border that has been recognized as part of an independent Ukraine since 1991, has been breathtaking. Just three weeks after Russian special operations troops seized control of strategic locations on the peninsula, the authorities there organized and held a disputed referendum that paved the way for Tuesday’s treaty signing. Putin called the outcome of the vote — almost 97 percent in
favor of secession — “more than convincing.” Putin acted despite the first of a series of threatened sanctions imposed by the U.S., Canada and Europe on Monday. He did so using the same arguments that those countries used to justify the independence of Kosovo — which the West generally supported — including a passage from an Obama administration document establishing the rationale for recognizing that country. Part of the speech also had an ominous tone, suggesting that Russian dissenters would be considered traitors siding with Russia’s adversaries. Putin has long suspected the United States of trying to stir up a democratic uprising in Russia along the lines of Ukraine’s Orange Revolution and the Arab Spring rebellions. “Some Western politicians already threaten us not only with sanctions, but also with the potential for domestic problems,” he said. “I would like to know what they are implying — the actions of a certain fifth column, of various national traitors? Or should we expect that they will worsen the social and economic situation, and therefore provoke people’s discontent? Putin also spoke of the radically changed circumstances since 1954, when Russia awarded Crimea to Ukraine. At that time, he said, “nobody could imagine that Russia and Ukraine could one day become different states.” After the breakup of the Soviet Union, Russia felt it was “robbed” of Crimea, he said. He was at pains to rebut the central Western argument that events in Crimea had been directed by a conventional military intervention. Putin said Russia never exceeded its permitted troop strength of 25,000 soldiers in Crimea as part of the longstanding agreement on the stationing of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol. There had been no combat, he said, and he thanked Ukrainian soldiers who avoided bloodshed. “I cannot remember a single act of intervention without one single shot” being fired, he said. However, within hours of that declaration, a group of soldiers opened fire while storming a modest Ukrainian military installation in Kubanskoye, near Simferopol. At least one Ukrainian soldier was injured and taken to a hospital, according to a Ukrainian officer inside the base and a spokesman for Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense, Vladislav Seleznev. The base appeared to be under control of the soldiers, who wore no insignia.
comes at “the expense of student instruction time.” Several educators disputed this. Acequia Madre Elementary School Principal Bill Beacham, who serves on the district’s calendar committee, said that over time, parents have found child care solutions on Friday afternoons. But teachers, he argued, will not find a solution for the lack of professional development time. Amy Biehl Community School teacher Brenda Dominguez told the board, “Our instruction is impacted by our ability to plan.” Bernice García Baca, president of NEA-Santa Fe, said the union contract calls for teachers to have five hours — or 300 minutes — of professional development and preparation time every week, but “in a good week, we’ll get 200 minutes of prep.” Several board members said they were inundated with emails and calls from teachers who asked to keep the early release on Fridays so they will have time to adapt to the new Common Core Standards, as well as plan and collaborate with other instructors on professional development plans. Board member Susan Duncan said, “Those Friday afternoons, everyone is working hard on many, many different areas of preparation that are needed. I think it is absolutely essential that we keep it.” The district will post the new calendar online at www.sfps.info, perhaps as soon as Wednesday.

Cancer: Finding out if access is included requires digging Continued from Page A-1 agreements with two more. In all, only four of 19 nationally recognized comprehensive cancer centers that responded to AP’s survey said patients have access through all the insurance companies in their states’ exchanges. Not too long ago insurance companies would have been vying to offer access to renowned cancer centers, said Dan Mendelson, CEO of the market research firm Avalere Health. Now the focus is on costs. “This is a marked deterioration of access to the premier cancer centers for people who are signing up for these plans,” Mendelson said. Those patients may not be able get the most advanced treatment, including clinical trials of new medications. And there’s another problem: It’s not easy for consumers shopping online in the new insurance markets to tell if top-level institutions are included in a plan. That takes additional digging by the people applying. “The challenges of this are going to become evident … as cancer cases start to arrive,” said Norman Hubbard, executive vice president of Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. Before President Barack Obama’s health care law, a cancer diagnosis could make you uninsurable. Now, insurers can’t turn away people with health problems or charge them more. Lifetime dollar limits on policies, once a financial trap-door for cancer patients, are also banned. The new obstacles are more subtle. To keep premiums low, insurers have designed narrow networks of hospitals and doctors. The government-subsidized private plans on the exchanges typically offer less choice than Medicare or employer plans.
By not including a top cancer center an insurer can cut costs. It may also shield itself from risk, delivering an implicit message to cancer survivors or people with a strong family history of the disease that they should look elsewhere. For now, the issue seems to be limited to the new insurance exchanges. But it could become a concern for Americans with jobbased coverage, too, if employers turn to narrow networks. The AP surveyed 23 institutions around the country that are part of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. Two additional institutions that joined this week were not included in the survey. Cancer network members are leading hospitals that combine the latest clinical research and knowledge with a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. They say that patients in their care have better-than-average survival rates. The unique role of cancer centers is recognized under Medicare. Several are exempt from its hospital payment system, instituted to control costs. AP asked the centers how many insurance companies in their state’s exchange included them as a network provider. Of the 19 that responded, four reported access through all insurers: the Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, Duke Cancer Institute in Durham, N.C., and Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center in Nashville. One caveat: Some insurers did not include these cancer centers on certain lowcost plans. Two centers had special circumstances. The best known is St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis. Treatment there is free as long as children have a referral.
Tesla: State hasn’t ruled out a special session to create incentives Continued from Page A-1 said the company would build the plant on Albuquerque’s west side. Construction on that 150,000-square-foot plant was scheduled to begin that spring. Jeff Bingaman, then a U.S. senator, and Marty Chavez, who was Albuquerque’s mayor at the time, also attended that news conference to applaud the coming of Tesla. Musk said his company would produce at least 10,000 cars a year at the Albuquerque plant and that the first cars would roll out in the fall of 2009. Richardson touted New Mexico incentives, including the high-wagejob tax credit, the manufacturer’s investment tax credit and help from the Job Training Incentive Program. He committed $7 million in capital projects funding to go to Bernalillo County for building and infrastructure investment related to the plant. Richardson even raised the possibility that state agencies would buy up to 100 of Tesla’s Albuquerque-produced vehicles — with a price tag of more than $60,000 each — for the state fleet. But it never happened.
By the summer of 2008 — after California gave the company a sweeter tax-incentive deal — Tesla decided to build its plant in that state, which is also home to the company’s headquarters. Arnold Schwarzenegger, governor of California at the time, reportedly said that it drove him “absolutely insane” to learn Tesla had planned to build its factory in another state. Richardson’s Economic Development Secretary Fred Mondragon, who announced Tesla’s decision in 2008, expressed some bitterness at the time in his statement: “This decision by Tesla is not surprising given the recent instability of its management,” he said. “Still, it is unfortunate that Tesla backed away from its commitment to the state.” Asked about the state’s prior experience with Tesla, Martinez’s spokesman Enrique Knell did not answer directly Tuesday. “Tesla is a fantastic company and we would certainly be thrilled and excited to have them come to New Mexico,” he said in an email. “We continue to have regular conversations and are competing hard to bring these
At a news conference in February 2007 with then-Gov. Bill Richardson, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, left, said the company would build a vehicle manufacturing plant in Albuquerque.

new jobs and this forward-looking company to the state. We have a much improved business climate, and have been ranked best in the west in manufacturing by Ernst and Young [the
multinational professional services firm]. These are dynamic conversations, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to discuss what New Mexico has to offer.”
Patrick Jones, a spokesman for Tesla, declined to talk about the company’s history with New Mexico. “We do not have any further comment on the Gigafactory aside from what was contained in the blog post published in February.” That posting was just a general announcement about Tesla’s plan to build a factory. Fred Nathan, director of Think New Mexico, said Tuesday that if the Legislature does come back for a special session, he hopes lawmakers will consider a bill that had bipartisan support in the Senate this year. The bill, crafted by Nathan’s think tank, would not award tax incentives to companies that move to New Mexico until they create a certain number of jobs. “Utah has demonstrated that postperformance incentives are especially attractive to new economy businesses like Tesla, while they are also appealing to taxpayers as companies only receive them after they have created high paying jobs,” he said.

NSA program reaches ‘into the past’ to retrieve, replay calls Leaked files show system is recording all calls in at least one foreign country By Barton Gellman and Ashkan Soltan The Washington Post

hidden within the large and complex system of modern global communications, and the United States must consequently collect signals intelligence in bulk in certain circumstances in order to identify these threats.” NSA spokeswoman Vanee Vines, in an emailed statement, said that “continuous and selective reporting of specific techniques and tools used for legitimate U.S. foreign intelligence activities is highly detrimental to the national security of the United States and of our allies, and places at risk those we are sworn to protect.” Some of the documents provided by Snowden suggest that high-volume eavesdropping may soon be extended to other countries, if it has not been already. The RETRO tool was built three years ago as a “unique one-off capability,” but last year’s secret intelligence budget named five more countries for which the MYSTIC program provides “comprehensive metadata access and content,” with a sixth expected to be in place by last October. The budget did not say whether the NSA now records calls in quantity in those countries, or expects to do so. A separate document placed high priority on planning “for MYSTIC accesses against projected new mission requirements,” including “voice.” Ubiquitous voice surveillance, even overseas, pulls in a great
deal of content from Americans who telephone, visit and work in the target country. It may also be seen as inconsistent with Obama’s Jan. 17 pledge “that the United States is not spying on ordinary people who don’t threaten our national security,” regardless of nationality, “and that we take their privacy concerns into account.” In a presidential policy directive, Obama instructed the NSA and other agencies that bulk acquisition may be used only to gather intelligence on one of six specified threats, including nuclear proliferation and terrorism. The directive, however, also noted that limits on bulk collection “do not apply to signals intelligence data that is temporarily acquired to facilitate targeted collection.” The emblem of the MYSTIC program depicts a cartoon wizard with a telephone-headed staff. Among the agency’s bulk collection programs disclosed over the past year, its focus on the spoken word is unique. Most of the programs have involved the bulk collection of either metadata — which does not include content — or text, such as email address books. Telephone calls are often thought to be more ephemeral and less suited than text for processing, storage and search.

Indeed, there are indications that the call-recording program has been hindered by the NSA’s limited capacity to store and transmit bulky voice files. In the first year of its deployment, a program officer wrote that the project “has long since reached the point where it was collecting and sending home far more than the bandwidth could handle.”

Because of similar capacity limits across a range of collection programs, the NSA is leaping forward with cloud-based collection systems and a gargantuan new “mission data repository” in Utah. According to its overview briefing, the Utah facility is designed “to cope with the vast increases in digital data that have accompanied the rise of the global network.”

WASHINGTON — The National Security Agency has built a surveillance system capable of recording “100 percent” of a foreign country’s telephone calls, enabling the agency to rewind and review conversations as long as a month after they take place, according to people with direct knowledge of the effort and documents supplied by former contractor Edward Snowden. A senior manager for the program compares it to a time machine — one that can replay the voices from any call without requiring that a person be identified in advance for surveillance. The voice interception program, called MYSTIC, began in 2009. Its RETRO tool, short for “retrospective retrieval,” and related projects reached full capacity against the first target nation in 2011. Planning documents two years later anticipated similar operations elsewhere. In the initial deployment, collection systems are recording “every single” conversation nationwide, storing billions of them in a 30-day rolling buffer that clears the oldest calls as new ones arrive, according to a classified summary. The call buffer opens a door “into the past,” the summary says, enabling users to “retrieve audio of interest that was not
tasked at the time of the original call.” Analysts listen to only a fraction of 1 percent of the calls, but the absolute numbers are high. Each month, they send millions of voice clippings, or “cuts,” for processing and long-term storage. At the request of U.S. officials, The Washington Post is withholding details that could be used to identify the country where the system is being employed or other countries where its use was envisioned. No other NSA program disclosed to date has swallowed a nation’s telephone network whole. Outside experts have sometimes described that prospect as disquieting but remote, with notable implications for the debate over the NSA’s practice of “bulk collection” abroad. Bulk methods capture massive data flows “without the use of discriminants,” as President Barack Obama put it in January. By design, they vacuum up all the data they touch — meaning that most of the conversations collected by RETRO would be irrelevant to U.S. national security interests. In the view of U.S. officials, however, the capability is highly valuable. In a statement, Caitlin Hayden, spokeswoman for the National Security Council, declined to comment on “specific alleged intelligence activities.” Speaking generally, she said “new or emerging threats” are “often

tried to take business in the used game market with “modest” success, said Baird Equity Research analyst Colin Sebastian, but GameStop has loyalty among video game customers and a broad inventory of new and used video games. “History suggests the competition is unlikely to capture meaningful share,” he wrote in a client note. The trade-in business is appealing for a retailer: When a consumer buys a new video game for $60, only a small portion of its sale price goes to the company. But when a consumer turns around and sells that game back to the company, the company can keep all the profits for itself. But it’s also a complex business that requires systems to track and manage used product inventory and pricing and the ability to refurbish products and restock stores appropriately to balance supply and demand. Still, Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia said GameStop has advantages that Wal-Mart does not: a large refurbishment facility in Dallas, pricing algorithms and experience developed over a decade. “It makes sense and feels natural that various retailers that offer new video games would try to offer trade-ins as well,” Bhatia said. “However, as many retailers have discovered in the past, buying product from merchants in bulk is quite different than buying one disc at a time from customers.” Another potential challenge in the video game trade-in market is software makers’ grudging acceptance of it. Publishers such as Activision, Electronic Arts and Take-Two Interactive have been adding downloadable content and add-ons to their $60 games to help recover any profits the publishers would have made if the consumer had bought a new game versus a retailer’s $55 used version. “You cannot have game and marketing budgets this high while also having used and rental games existing,” Cliff Bleszinski, the creator of the popular Gears of War franchise, said last year

NEW YORK al-Mart plans to start buying used video games from shoppers at stores in a move that goes after the bread-andbutter business of GameStop. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. plans to expand its current online trade-in program by allowing customers to trade their used video games at 3,100 Wal-Mart stores in exchange for credit toward the purchase of other items. The world’s largest retailer is taking aim at the $2 billion used video game market. It’s a business that’s dominated by GameStop Corp., the world’s biggest dedicated seller of video games with the largest and most-established video game trade-in program. Retailers from Amazon to Best Buy also offer used video game trade-in programs. But Wal-Mart’s new program is the biggest threat to GameStop, which for the last three years has drawn roughly half of its profits from buying and selling used video games. Starting next week, WalMart customers can trade in video games for credit that can be used in both Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club stores. The value for each trade-in will vary by the title, console and age of the game, ranging from just a few dollars for older games to $35 or more for newer ones. In an apparent flight on GameStop’s program, WalMart made a point Tuesday of saying that the credit it will offer shoppers can be used on anything from groceries to a new bike, rather than just other video games. “When we disrupt markets and compete, our customer wins,” said Duncan Mac Naughton, chief merchandising and marketing officer of its U.S. stores. “They’ll save money on video games and have the flexibility to spend it however they want.” Analysts suggest the new program isn’t necessarily a death knell for GameStop. After all, other retailers have

COMMENTARY: JACK F. MATLOCK JR.
Continued misunderstandings a loss for all
ne afternoon in September 1987, Secretary of State George Shultz settled in a chair across the table from Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze in a New York conference room. Both were in the city for the United Nations General Assembly. As he habitually did at the start of such meetings, Shultz handed Shevardnadze a list of reported human rights abuses in the Soviet Union. Shevardnadze’s predecessor, Andrei Gromyko, had always received such lists grudgingly and would lecture us for interfering in Soviet internal affairs. This time, though, Shevardnadze looked Shultz in the eye and said through his interpreter: “George, I will check this out, and if your information is correct, I will do what I can to correct the problem. But I want you to know one thing: I am not doing this because you ask me to; I am doing it because it is what my country needs to do.” Shultz replied: “Eduard, that’s the only reason either of us should do something. Let me assure you that I will never ask you to do something that I believe is not in your country’s interest.” They stood and shook hands. As I watched the scene, with as much emotion as amazement, it dawned on me that the Cold War was over. The job of American ambassador in Moscow was going to be a lot easier for me than it had been for my predecessors. I don’t believe that we are witnessing a renewal of the Cold War. The tensions between Russia and the West are based more on misunderstandings, misrepresentations and posturing for domestic audiences than on any real clash of ideologies or national interests. And the issues are far fewer and much less dangerous than those we dealt with during the Cold War. But a failure to appreciate how the Cold War ended has had a profound impact on Russian and Western attitudes — and helps explain what we are seeing now. The common assumption that the West forced the collapse of the Soviet Union and thus won the Cold War is wrong. The fact is that the Cold War ended by negotiation to the advantage of both sides. At the December 1989 Malta summit, Mikhail Gorbachev and President George H.W. Bush confirmed that the ideological basis for the war was gone, stating that the two

E nations no longer regarded each other as enemies. Over the next two years, we worked more closely with the Soviets than with even some of our allies. Together, we halted the arms race, banned chemical weapons and agreed to drastically reduce nuclear weapons. I also witnessed the raising of the Iron Curtain, the liberation of Eastern Europe and the voluntary abandonment of communist ideology by the Soviet leader. Without an arms race ruining the Soviet economy and perpetuating totalitarianism, Gorbachev was freed to focus on internal reforms. Because the collapse of the Soviet Union happened so soon afterward, people often confuse it with the end of the Cold War. But they were separate events, and the former was not an inevitable outcome of the latter. Even after the USSR ceased to exist, Gorbachev maintained that “the end of the Cold War is our common victory.” Yet the United States insisted on treating Russia as the loser. “By the grace of God, America won the Cold War,” George W. Bush said during his 1992 State of the Union address. That rhetoric would not have been particularly damaging on its own. But it was reinforced by later U.S. actions. President Bill Clinton supported NATO’s bombing of Serbia without U.N. Security Council approval and the expansion of NATO to include former Warsaw Pact countries. Those moves seemed to violate the understanding that the
United States would not take advantage of the Soviet retreat from Eastern Europe. The effect on Russians’ trust in the United States was devastating. In 1991, polls indicated that about 80 percent of Russian citizens had a favorable view of the United States; in 1999, nearly the same percentage had an unfavorable view. Vladimir Putin was elected in 2000 and initially followed a pro-Western orientation. When terrorists attacked the United States on Sept. 11, 2001, he was the first foreign leader to call and offer support. He cooperated with the United States when it invaded Afghanistan, and he voluntarily removed Russian bases from Cuba and Cam Ranh Bay in Vietnam. What did he get in return? Some meaningless praise from President Bush, who then delivered the diplomatic equivalent of swift kicks to the groin: further expansion of NATO in the Baltics and the Balkans, and plans for American bases there; withdrawal from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty; invasion of Iraq without U.N. Security Council approval; overt participation in the “color revolutions” in Ukraine, Georgia and Kyrgyzstan; and then, probing some of the firmest red lines any Russian leader would draw, talk of taking Georgia and Ukraine into NATO. President Barack Obama famously attempted a “reset” of relations with Russia, with some success: The New START treaty was an important achievement, and there was increased quiet cooperation on a number of regional
issues. But then Congress’ penchant for minding other people’s business when it cannot cope with its own began to take its toll. The Magnitsky Act, which singled out Russia for human rights violations as if there were none of comparable gravity elsewhere, infuriated Russia’s rulers and confirmed with the broader public the image of the United States as an implacable enemy. Putin’s military occupation of Crimea has exacerbated the situation. The incorporation of Crimea in the Russian Federation, it may well result into a period of mutual recrimination and economic sanctions reminiscent of the Cold War. In that scenario, there would be no winners, only losers: most of all Ukraine itself, which may not survive in its present form, and Russia, which would become more isolated. Meanwhile, the United States and Europe would lose to the extent that a resentful Russia would make it even more difficult to address global and regional issues such as the Iranian nuclear program, North Korea and the Syrian civil war, to name a few. Russian policy in these areas has not always been all the United States desired, but it has been more helpful than many Americans realize. Encouraging a more obstructive Russia is not in anyone’s interest. Jack F. Matlock Jr., ambassador to the USSR from 1987 to 1991, is the author of Reagan and Gorbachev: How the Cold War Ended.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
La Bajada — one mine is more than enough
ow many times have you driven north on Interstate 25 up La Bajada and taken a deep breath when you saw the spectacular view. Priceless, right? Part of the joy of seeing the mountains in the distance is that you are going there — home. Now imagine driving up that same hill, but instead of seeing pristine, undisturbed mesas, you are confronted with a gravel mining operation with mining equipment, dust and lights on the mesa 24/7. Sad, frustration, anger — questioning who did this. Who ruined a priceless piece of beauty for a strip mine? There is one here already. Does money once again trump our love of land and the ecological uniqueness? The cost to the environment would
be forever irreplaceable. Hopefully the commissioners will listen and stop this senseless destruction. Lend your voice at the meeting on Thursday, in the County Commission Chambers, 102 Grant Ave. Write to the case manager of the project immediately, Jose Larranaga at email@example.com and visit www.savelabajada.com.

roads needed to bring in equipment and carry out gravel. If there is anything that we have in abundant supply, it is rocks, sand and gravel. County officials do not need to allow damage of historically and archaeologically important sites to get these materials. I am a native New Mexican, resident of Santa Fe County, born in Roswell, graduate of New Mexico State University. My father drove La Bajada in the 1920s and 1930s when trucks had to back up the hill because gasoline was fed by gravity to the carburetor from the tank in the rear of the vehicle. Thomas F. Pogue
vidence is mounting that the use of lead ammunition — whether for hunting or target shooting — is causing unintended problems, poisoning animals and polluting water. Just as the federal government banned lead from paint in 1977 or from pipe used for drinking water in 1981, it is time to stop using lead in ammunition. Lead was removed from gasoline, a process that took from the 1970s to the mid-1990s. Whether left behind in animal carcasses and then eaten by predators, or littering target practice areas, or deposited into streams and ponds, the lead from ammunition pollutes. Lead sinkers used for fishing also can be a problem, whether because waterfowl eat the sinkers or consume fish that have swallowed them. Lead, as science has shown, builds up in tissues over time. It can cause neurological problems in both humans and animals. A 2012 paper published by the National Institutes of Health estimated that collectively, Americans have lost some 41 million IQ points because of exposure to lead, mercury and certain pesticides. Just as with paint, which now comes in nontoxic varieties, other sorts of ammunition are available for hunting and shooting. Even without any government regulations, shooters could simply switch ammunition (the U.S. military is phasing out lead ammunition by 2018). Already, the federal government has banned the use of lead shot in hunting waterfowl over bodies of water. That happened in 1991. Before, it had been estimated that 2,700 tons of shot ended up in wetlands each year. More than 30 states, including New Mexico, also have restrictions on the use of lead ammunition. Those restrictions, patchwork in nature, do not go far enough to prevent wild creatures and our water from lead poisoning. Last year, California banned all ammunition containing lead, phasing it in — lawmakers there realized that the recovery of the California Condor depended on reducing lead in the ecosystem. The California ban becomes absolute in 2019. New Mexico should follow suit. Currently, New Mexico’s lead ammunition bans generally affect certain types of hunts on lands owned or managed by the New Mexico Game Commission — it only makes sense to broaden those limits so that water and animals across the state are protected. Hunting is a traditional practice in New Mexico and across the West. Hunters generally express a love for the outdoors and nature that few can match. Hunters and other sportsmen should be leading the charge to stop the use of lead in ammunition. Individually, they can choose other types of ammunition. As a group, they can lobby the state Legislature to ban the use of lead ammunition, protecting water, animals and all of those who live here.
The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: March 19, 1914: Denver, Colo. — Forty-seven elk, sent by the federal forestry service from the Jackson’s Hole country, Wyoming, reached Denver today, and were quartered in the stock yards. When the snow is out of the mountains, they will be sent to Aspen, and to Estes Park. The government recently announced a policy of distributing elk in the mountains of Colorado. March 19, 1964: Española — Rozella May Baca of Española and Mary Ann Wright of San Juan Pueblo are among nine New Mexico Indian girls who have been assigned as practical nurses in Public Health Service Hospitals following their graduation from the PHS School of Practical Nursing, Albuquerque. Both girls have been assigned to the PRS Indian Hospital, Rosebud, S.D. March 19, 1989: Tularosa, N.M. — Dave McDonald is 87 and wears a pacemaker for his weak heart. But he vows to reoccupy the homestead the Army took from him 47 years ago when it created White Sands Missile Range. The rancher and his niece, Mary McDonald, briefly reoccupied the home six years ago. Now they say they’ll shoot it out if the government tries to evict them without paying for the land. A neighbor, 75-year-old Ira McKinley, promises to stand with them. The ranchers said they are fed up with Congress and the courts for dragging out the case. The last straw, they said, was the U.S. Court of Claims’ rejection in January of up to $50 million in compensation to about 100 displaced ranchers and their heirs for the lost lands.

Subject: BIBLICAL PAIRS Identify the two people or things from the Bible. (e.g., The first couple. Answer: Adam and Eve.)
Dear Annie: I am a 13-year-old girl whose best friend (I’ll call her “Blue”) has become very rude and even annoying. I can no longer make a comment about something without her answering nastily or adding logic to imaginary scenarios that aren’t intended to be logical. It’s irritating. We have another friend, “Violet,” who is very creative and loves to draw. So do I. But when I showed Blue a picture I had done, she said, “Violet is way better than you are.” This hurt my feelings, and I was angry. When I consulted Violet, she said Blue had been rude and annoying to her, too. We don’t want to offend Blue or lose her as a friend, but frankly, we can’t handle her anymore. What should we do? — Red in Nevada Dear Nevada: It’s not uncommon for those entering their teen years to behave in ways that are baffling, annoying or rude. Talk to Blue. Tell her how you feel. Explain that sometimes the things she says are hurtful. Don’t be angry or accuse her of anything. Just let her know how sad it makes you. We hope she will be more aware of these things in the future and care enough not to hurt you, but we can’t promise. Sorry to say, not all friendships survive this stage. Dear Annie: I had to write about your response to “Concerned Cousin,” who worries about two grandparents who take turns sharing the same bed with their 5-year-old granddaughter when they visit her home. You should have mentioned what happens when men are sleeping: They can have a wet dream or be stimulated by any dream and touch the person in bed with them, and it can lead to sexual touching while they are asleep. Grandpa should not share a bed with his granddaughter. Sexual molestation is rampant today, and it can start in even the most innocent of ways. Please re-address this letter in your column imme-
diately. — Wyoming Reader Dear Wyoming: We were saddened at the number of readers who seemed certain that all grandfathers (and apparently some grandmothers) are molesting their grandchildren, intentionally or otherwise. While parents need to be vigilant about these things, it is an insult to all grandparents everywhere to assume that all are pedophiles or lack selfcontrol. While some grandparents (and parents, cousins, uncles, aunts and friends) are indeed untrustworthy, it is terribly hurtful to accuse all grandparents of such horrible things. Nonetheless, in today’s world, we certainly understand the parents’ concerns. We mentioned having the child use an air mattress or sleeping bag, which would be the preferred solution for those who want to be extra careful and worry that they cannot trust the grandparents. Here’s one more with a different perspective: Dear Annie: I’m so grateful my family did not think it weird or creepy for a young girl to sleep in the same bed as her grandfather. My sister and I slept at our grandparents’ house every weekend. We would alternate beds, one of us sleeping with Grandma and the other with Grandpa. Each child got one-on-one time with a grandparent, staying up late, giggling, talking and listening to amazing bedtime stories about growing up during the Great Depression. Grandma was a better storyteller, but the child with Grandpa got the fun of raiding the kitchen pantry for a midnight snack. I was about 11 when I no longer wanted to sleep in the same bed with either grandparent, but that was only because it wasn’t “cool” and I would rather stay up watching television. Silly me. I’m 38 years old now, and both of my grandparents are gone. But those great bedtime memories will be cherished all my life. — Missing My Grandparents in Davenport, Iowa

Board OKs firm for dropout program No late MAYOR’S RACE
Teachers union, Wikle blast private contract for effort to give former students another shot at diploma
By Robert Nott The New Mexican
The Santa Fe school board, facing heated objections from teachers union representatives and one board member, voted Tuesday to move forward on a contract with a private, outof-state company that plans to recruit dropouts and offer them another chance to earn their high school diplomas. Board member Glenn Wikle, who cast the dissenting vote,
voiced concerns that the move equates to privatization of public schooling. His opposition sparked a spirited and sometimes contentious debate, with Wikle saying the district is violating the state constitution and board President Steve Carrillo suggesting Wikle was engaging in “borderline slander.” “There’s no public entity to privatize” in this situation, Carrillo said, since a similar public program does not exist in the district.
Under the contract, Floridabased Atlantic Education Partners will oversee the program, which will allow students to take classes at their own pace, both online and in a classroom. The district will turn over to the firm 90 percent of the money it receives from the state for those students — at an average rate of $6,700 per student. Atlantic would then hire staff to find and enroll the students and hire teachers for the program.
The plan also caused friction between Superintendent Joel Boyd and teacher representatives. In a letter Monday to Boyd and the five school board members, Bernice García Baca, president of NEA-Santa Fe, said the plan is unconstitutional because the money schools receive from the state cannot be used to support “any sectarian, denominational, or private

Tomasita’s taps sun power
A new Tomasita’s Restaurant carport, made of 210 solar panels, does double-duty as shaded parking for 24 cars and a charging station for one electric car. The $325,000 system, shown Tuesday, is scheduled to be connected over the weekend. CLYDE MUELLER/THE NEW MEXICAN
Railyard restaurant’s carport shields customers’ vehicles while soaking up solar rays By Staci Matlock The New Mexican
omasita’s Restaurant in the Santa Fe Railyard expects to generate more than half its electricity with a new solar photovoltaic parking structure, while providing shade for 24 cars and a plug-in power spot for one electric vehicle. “The idea is it will be for customers,” said George Gundrey, the restaurant’s owner and manager. “The spirit behind it is someone can come in and have an enchilada while charging their car.” The 210 solar panels that create the restaurant’s solar carport, made by California-based SunPower, form a 68.67-kilowatt, grid-tied system, designed and installed by Positive Energy Solar in Santa Fe. Gundrey said the system is designed to produce 85 percent of the restaurant’s electricity between the peak power-use hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. He said he won’t know the actual solar power produced until the system has been in use for awhile. Public Service Company of New Mexico will inspect the final connection of the photovoltaic carport to the
Few DWI arrests on St. Paddy’s Day Local law enforcement agencies ramped up their patrols, but they had a quiet night in the Santa Fe area during St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office reported that two people were arrested at a multi-agency DWI checkpoint on U.S. 84/285 near The Santa Fe Opera. Additionally, the Santa Fe Police Department reported arresting two people on DWI charges between 3 p.m. Monday and 1 a.m. Tuesday. A news release from the department stated that officers didn’t respond to any alcohol-related crashes.

restaurant over the weekend. Gundrey said the drop in prices for solar panels in the last couple of years, combined with a 30 percent federal solar tax credit, made this the right time to invest in the system. He expects the payoff on the system’s $325,000 price tag to take seven years after the tax credit. The system is supposed to last at least 25 years, according to Positive Energy Solar. “It’s a really affordable time,” Gundrey said. “I’ve always cared about the environment and trying to reduce our footprint and be more efficient. We’re a solid business, and I’m confident the payout will be worth it.” Gundry said the system will offset the most expensive electricity the restaurant uses. He said PNM charges more for power used during peak daytime periods, exactly when the sun is shining and his solar panels will be producing electricity. Off-peak electricity, typically at night, costs the restaurant 3.93 cents per kilowatt-hour year-round, Gundry said. The cost during peak hours, from June through September, is 8.44 cents per kilowatthour. The restaurant pays 6.99 cents per kilowatt-hour for peak power October
Joshua Duran, 26, of Raton is accused of having sex with a 17-year-old female student who attends Raton High School. During the investigation, police discovered Duran Joshua Duran was a high school baseball coach and that he worked as a behavioral specialist with a nonprofit employed by the high school. The statement said Duran turned himself into authorities Saturday. He was released from Bernalillo County’s Metropolitan Detention Center on Monday on a $5,000 cash or surety bond. Raton Public Schools Superintendent Neil Terhune said as of Tuesday afternoon, Duran was still employed with the school. He added, however, that the protocol is to place staff who have been accused of sexual relations with a student on administrative leave.

through May. The power generated by the panels will be credited against the electricity the restaurant uses through net metering. In addition, under state regulations, the restaurant will earn about a nickel per kilowatt-hour produced each month from PNM as a Renewable Energy Credit. The credits help PNM meet state-mandated requirements for renewable energy. “Our solar array will help us control our energy costs, but most importantly, it will mean cleaner air, decrease emissions of toxic chemicals and reduce our impact on climate change,” Gundrey said in a statement. Positive Energy Solar, which designed and installed the solar carport, has installed more than 1,000 residential and commercial solar systems across the state. Solar technology “is a smart investment that allows restaurant owners to hold energy costs down, while differentiating themselves,” Regina Wheeler, Positive Energy Solar’s chief executive officer, said in a statement.

Mexico has six such active organizations operating in the state. The Las Cruces Sun-News reported that the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center has identified two Ku Klux Klan cells, two antiMuslim groups, a skinhead group and an anti-Semitic group in New Mexico. The center named the groups in the agency’s 2013 report released this spring. SPLC lead fellow Mark Potok says one of the groups is a racist skinhead organization in northwest New Mexico. The report also says there are two active Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan groups in New Mexico, including one in Silver City.

flurry of outside spending By Daniel J. Chacón
The New Mexican
There was no last-minute surge in spending by outside groups in Santa Fe’s March 4 municipal election, according to final campaign statements filed by Tuesday’s deadline. The reports show that two political-action committees, a nonprofit and an umbrella organization for more than two dozen labor unions spent a combined $64,421 supporting the candidacy of Javier Gonzales, who won the mayor’s race. The biggest outside spenders were the Santa Fe Working Families PAC, which spent $30,393, and Working America, a nonprofit that poured $30,148 into the race. Gonzales, who publicly disavowed the involvement of independent expenditure groups, was criticized by his opponents, City Councilors Patti Bushee and Bill Dimas, for benefiting from outside spending despite receiving $60,000 in public financing. All three mayoral candidates ran their campaigns under public financing. It’s unclear whether Bushee, who came in second in the mayor’s race, spent the entire $60,000. The City Clerk’s Office was still waiting for Bushee to file her final campaign statement at 4:45 p.m. Tuesday. Unlike all the other candidates and outside groups, Bushee’s report was not posted on the city’s website by 5 p.m. Gonzales spent the entire $60,000. In the last reporting period, Gonzales spent his remaining $2,323 primarily on canvassers, consulting fees and printing costs. Dimas, who finished last, spent all but $2,472. In the last reporting period, Dimas spent nearly $7,000, including nearly $2,500 on drinks and food, $600 on music and $1,315 on cleanup and to remove and dispose of campaign signs.
Burglar hits Old Pecos Trail offices By Chris Quintana The New Mexican
Someone broke into two offices near Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center overnight Sunday, stealing cash and causing thousands of dollars worth of damage. The Santa Fe Police Department reported that the break-ins occurred at 1751 Old Pecos Trail, part of the Pecos Trail Office Court. The owner of one business told police that about $10 in change was stolen from the office suite. A police report said the burglar also caused $1,000 in damage to the office’s front door. The burglar broke three separate doors with what appeared to be a crowbar at another business, the offices of Martha Davis and Genevieve Davis, both psychotherapists. The two are not related. The burglar ransacked the women’s offices and stole some cash. The police report said there also was about $1,000 worth of damage to the doors. The psychotherapists said they had to cancel most of their Monday morning appointments so they could clean up the office. But both said they were grateful the burglar didn’t cause more damage. Genevieve Davis said police collected a fingerprint at the scene. She also said she and Martha Davis have been in the building for about seven years, and this is the first time they have been burglarized. They said they asked police if a security system would have helped, but officers told them the burglar was in and out of the building within minutes. In order to protect the privacy of their patients, they do not have security cameras at the offices. “It’s unnerving,” Genevieve Davis said. “We understand the world has challenges, but it’s tough when it walks through the front door.”

Funeral services and memorials RICHARD R. GORMAN I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. 2 Timothy 4:7 Cherished husband, beloved son, father, brother, uncle and friend, Richard R. Gorman passed away peacefully at home on March 16, 2014, following a courageous and valiant battle with pancreatic cancer. Richard was 60 year old. He was surrounded by his loving family. Born in Santa Fe to Robert and Virginia Gorman, Richard lived his entire life in Santa Fe, a place he truly loved. Although Richard enjoyed traveling to many different places, he always said he would never leave Santa Fe. Richard had an infectious smile and hearty laugh. His love of the outdoors was evident in the activities he enjoyed including hiking, biking, fishing, backpacking, and skiing. Richard’s dream as a child was to build a true log cabin. Following a backpacking trip with his wife Shea and son Ryan, they found the perfect location for his dream cabin on the Pecos River. After designing and building his cabin, this quickly became Richard’s sanctuary. He and Shea and their families spent many wonderful weekends at the cabin. Richard attended the University of New Mexico where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Architecture. His career began straight out of college at Kraus Engineering. He quickly learned and provided structural engineering design for various types of buildings. Two of these projects were the Indian Health Services Facility on Cerrillos Road and the Manuel Lujan State Office Building on St. Francis Drive. He later worked with Bernabe Romero as an apprentice architect. He was the chief building inspector for the City of Santa Fe and the County Land Use Administrator for Santa Fe County. After leaving the County, Richard was a wellknown private land use planner with a reputation for getting things done. He was also a licensed contractor and built many beautiful homes in Santa Fe along with his brothers. Richard served on the Santa Fe School Board for four years. In 19931994 he served as its President. Richard ended his career as the Project Manager for the New Mexico School for the Deaf. In this position Richard strived to make a difference for the NMSD community. He was recently recognized with a permanent plaque at NMSD for his contributions to the redevelopment of the campus. Richard was very involved with his parish, the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. He was instrumental in the design and construction of many improvements including the exterior statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe on Guadalupe Street and the El Cerro de Tepeyac Memorial on the east end of the church parking lot. Richard is preceded in death by his father Robert D. Gorman, Sr., his paternal grandparents Richard and Magdalena Gorman, his maternal grandfather Leandro Montoya and his maternal grandmother Lillie Miera. He is also preceded in death by his special uncle and godfather, Joseph J. Gorman. He is survived by his adoring wife, Shea Gorman, loving mother, Virginia Gorman, and children Felecia, Chris and Ryan. He also leaves behind his siblings, Robert Gorman, Jr. (Cathy), Peggy Martinez (Larry), Gina Arsenault (Jon), James Gorman (Paula), and Don Gorman (Suzanne). Many other relatives, including his uncle, Ernesto Montoya (Molly), and nieces, nephews and cousins survive him, along with many friends. Shea’s family had a very special place in their hearts for Richard and cherished his being a part of their family. A rosary will be held at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church at 7:00 p.m. on March 19, 2014. The mass will be celebrated at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church on March 20, 2014, at 10:00 a.m., followed by internment at Rosario Cemetery.

MARY FRANCES MEEKER WILSON (1913 - 2014) Mary Meeker Wilson was born on Christmas Day, 1913, at home, upstairs, in American Fork, Utah. Mary’s father John Scudder Meeker was a Presbyterian National Missions minister who with his wife Georgia Poage Meeker and four children served churches in Utah, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Illinois, Colorado and Kansas. Mary graduated from high school in Emporia, Kansas and attended the College of Emporia along with Chase Altman Wilson whom she married in 1938 in Del Norte, Colorado on the front porch of her parents’ home. Mary graduated from The Oklahoma College for Women in Chickasha, Oklahoma and then studied art education at Emporia State Teachers College and enjoyed a short career teaching in the early grades. In 1953, Chase and Mary moved with their only child, Quentin Chase Wilson, to the South Valley of Albuquerque. Mary was active in the First Presbyterian Church, notably sponsoring the high school fellowship group for several years along with Chase. Mary was active in the Parent Teachers Associations at Five Points School, Ernie Pyle Junior High and Rio Grande High School serving as president at each level. In 1961 Mary ran for and was elected to the Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education. In 1965, she was elected to the New Mexico State Board of Education and was proud to be involved in the 1968 effort to authorize what is now San Juan College. In 1970, Mary and Chase moved to Colorado for fourteen years and then returned to New Mexico, living in Española for ten years to provide an extra household for their grandchildren who commuted to McCurdy Schools from Ojo Caliente. Mary loved drawing, oil painting, watercolors, sewing and storytelling and was very good at everything she did. She and Chase loved to travel and made memorable trips to Europe, South America, Hawaii, Alaska and Australia. Mary and Chase moved into El Castillo Retirement Residences, Santa Fe, in 1992 where she spent twenty-one years of her life.

Jeb Bush to stump for N.M. gov. Potential GOP presidential hopeful swinging through states to raise profile By Michael J. Mishak The Associated Press
MIAMI — Jeb Bush gets the question at just about every public appearance these days: Will you run for president? The former Florida governor gives a well-worn answer: “I can honestly tell you that I don’t know what I’m going to do.” It’s an answer that won’t satisfy the GOP faithful for much longer. The scion of the Bush political dynasty will likely be asked the question many times in the coming weeks as he raises his profile with appearances in Tennessee, New Mexico, Nevada and Texas — where he’ll bump into another possible 2016 presidential candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Bush’s “yes” or “no” is one of the most significant factors looming over the 2016 Republican presidential contest. A White House bid by the brother and son of presidents would shake up a wide-open GOP field, attract a legion of big-money donors and set up a showdown with the influential tea party movement. Bush has said he’ll consult with his family this summer and make a decision by the end of the year. With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie facing multiple investigations in a political retribution probe, many Republicans see Bush as a potent alternative: a two-term GOP governor who thrived in the nation’s largest swing-voting state and could make the party more inclusive. Friends and advisers say he is seriously considering a presidential run. His busy schedule will do little to quiet speculation. This month, Bush is expected to visit New Mexico and Nevada to campaign for
Utilities sue county over fees ALBUQUERQUE — Three utilities are asking a federal court to prohibit Bernalillo County from enforcing a new ordinance that imposes fees for using roads and other public rights of way for lines. The Albuquerque Journal reported that New Mexico Gas Co., Public Service Co. of New Mexico and CenturyLink contend the county is improperly imposing franchise fees to get more revenue to pad its budget. The suit contends the fees are illegal and trample on the state Public Regulation Commission’s authority. County Attorney Randy Autio says his office will defend the ordinance, which he calls a legal method for requiring reasonable compensation for use of rights of way. The county approved the ordinance in January, with supporters saying the county shouldn’t subsidize utility companies’ use of roads.

A view from the top of Rua Augusta Arch in Lisbon toward the pedestrian strip and the hills of the city. HOJI FORTUNA/THE WASHINGTON POST
With its beauty, culture and history, Lisbon offers an inexplicable sense of wistfulness
and raucous nights. From one side of my living room I could see São Jorge castle atop Alfama and, if I leaned out the window, the Tagus on the other side. My love of Lisbon remained. And my obsession with saudade never faded. So, nine years after my first visit, I returned for a couple of days and set out to seek saudade. It felt like a mystery that I simply had to solve.

The Washington Post
he tram twists and turns up and down the hills of Lisbon. Views open up in all directions — the Tagus River sparkling below, the tumbledown facades of oncegrand townhouses, laundry-laden balconies and wrinkle-faced women gazing wistfully out their windows. My Angolan-Portuguese husband is snapping photos. I have my headphones on, tuning out the forgettable narration and tuning in when a fado comes on. The melancholy trademark music of Portugal helps me in my quest, propels me toward an understanding of what I’ve come here to seek. We are on tram 28, a rickety vintage car that has been winding its way through Lisbon’s streets since 1928. Only, this isn’t the real deal; it’s an ersatz version that travels a slightly more scenic route and comes complete with an audio guide, so that tourists can understand the sights they’re passing. The starting point is Praça do Comércio, an expansive waterfront square on the Tagus, also known as Terreiro do Paço. Recently restored, it now showcases sidewalk cafes, restaurants and museums and, on sunny days, crowds of camera-toting visitors and a few Lisboetas passing through. Then it’s off to the hills of Lisbon, with their aging beauty concealed in the steep maze of alleyways, and back to the mosaicpaved streets and neoclassical architecture of Pombaline Baixa, the city’s elegant downtown district, built in the 18th century after the devastating 1755 earthquake. I’ve come on a curious mission: to find a key to a sentiment that’s been haunting me since I discovered the country in 2005. That first time I laid eyes on Lisbon, I felt a peculiar kind of wistfulness. I’d never before set foot in Portugal, so there was nothing to be wistful about. But the feeling was present, it was potent, and I found it quite odd. En route from the airport, I remember seeing shabby porticos, a palm tree here and there poking out of spaces between abandoned buildings. On that first trip, I came with a boyfriend. As we explored Lisbon, we fought. A lot. Instead of setting out to unlock the secrets of this striking city, I spent almost the entire trip feeling sad. Yet the sadness was tinged with strangely sweet undertones. A couple of months after our return to New York, that relationship ended. Our parting had noth-
So there we were, on tram 28. The idea was that if only I looked at Lisbon with fresh eyes, I’d finally “get” saudade, put my finger on where it comes from and what it means. The next day, we rose to rain clouds that hung heavy over the hilltops. The weather suited my saudade-seeking mission. We strolled to the Fado Museum, housed in a pink building near the waterfront. Fado, which in Portuguese means fate, was born from the songs of saudade. The Portuguese sailors who crossed the globe in the past brought back tales of unknown cultures. Out of these tales rose songs that spoke of danger-filled voyages, homeThe sun sets on Lisbon’s Bairro Alto neighborhood, a quarter sickness, loneliness and the volaknown for its languid days and raucous nights. tility of nature and fate.

ORLANDO, Fla. — The new Harry Potter area opening at Universal Orlando Resort this summer will allow fans to ride the Hogwarts Express train and experience the British countryside just as the characters did in the book and movie series. According to a news release from Universal Orlando Resort, guests will appear to magically pass through a brick wall and board a train with steam and a whistle. Riders will have two different experiences — one on the way to the new London-themed area at Universal Studios Park and another on the way to the original Wizarding World of Harry Potter area, which is located at Universal’s Islands of Adventure park. During the ride, characters and magical creatures from the book will be spotted. Among them: Hagrid on a flying motorbike, the Weasley twins on brooms and the Knight Bus in London traffic. Universal’s team worked with a group from the Harry Potter films on the new themed area and train. If fans want to see both parks, a two-park ticket will be required — currently $136.32 for one day for ages 10 and up. The theme park on Friday also released details about its newest hotel, the Cabana Bay Beach Resort. Based on 1950s and 1960s midcentury modernist architecture, the resort will open 600 of its 1,800 rooms Monday. When fully built, 900 of the rooms will be suites with kitchenettes, and at a family-friendly price point. Standard rooms will cost from $93-$127 a night for a seven-night or more stay, depending on the season, company officials said. Family suites — which sleep up to six guests — run from $134-$171 a night for a seven-night or more stay, depending on the season. Russ Dagon, the vice president and executive project director of Universal Creative, said guests will feel like they’re still in the theme parks. “It’s an extension of the experience,” he said. The architects who built the hotel studied several midcentury modern hotels and motels, especially in Miami, Fla., and Wildwood, N.J. The hotel will also have two beach-themed pools, a lazy river and waterslide.

ALBUQUERQUE he universal reaction to The University of New Mexico’s seeding in the Big Dance — at least in the heart of Lobo Nation — was outrage. A No. 7 seed in the South region was taken as a sign of disrespect among Lobos fans, particularly after a season in which the team won 27 games, won its conference tournament and spent two extended stretches ranked inside the Top 25. On Monday, the team climbed to 17th in the final regular season rankings for the Associated Press and USA Today — its highest rank of the entire campaign. Whether or not the fans’ emotions were echoed inside the guarded walls of the team’s Selection Sunday gathering is anyone’s guess. Head coach Craig Neal held a private function for his players and staff, keeping the cameras and fans well clear. The team’s reaction may very well have been just like the fans’. Neal just wasn’t saying. “Yeah, I’m not going to comment on the seeding,” he said when the local media finally had a chance to
Spartans tough to beat this season By James Barron The New Mexican
All roads in District 2AAAA softball lead through Bernalillo. That’s the power of Demetria Magdalena. The senior ace for the Lady Spartans, who once held the same title when she pitched at Santa Fe Indian School as a freshman, is the one obstacle between Bernalillo repeating as district champion and the door opening up for the rest of the district. Magdalena was a powerful cog in the Lady Spartans winning 2AAAA title, as they went 21-3-1 last season. Magdalena posted a 20-3-1 mark, and racked up more than 200 strikeouts as she earned the district’s player of the year award. So the rest of the district knows the battle plan — get to Magdalena. It’s just easier said than done. “They are going to be a tough team to beat,” Los Alamos head coach

West Las Vegas gets new coach
Salazar was assistant coach under Bustos By James Barron
The New Mexican
Karli Salazar was made for this role, even if she’s just 21 years old. She earned it Tuesday, as she was named head volleyball coach at West Las Vegas. Salazar, a 2011 Española Valley graduate, was an assistant coach for the Lady Dons under Mary Bustos, who died just a day before the Class AAA State Tournament began in November. Salazar was one of two candidates for the job, along with Las Vegas Robertson head coach Judith Trujillo. What won over the search committee and West Las Vegas superintendent Gene Parsons was her presentation of how she would run the program, as well as her volleyball background. Salazar played at Española from 2007 to 2010, and the last two years were under her dad, Damon Salazar. Sister Kristi Salazar played at New Mexico State University and New Mexico Highlands. Karli Salazar has also coached on the club level, starting at the age of 14. She spent one year at West Las Vegas, and cocoached with Arissa Nichols when the Lady Dons played at the state tournament. “She comes from a family of volleyball enthusiasts,” Parsons said. “They’ve always been supportive of her and her role as a player or

N.C. State beats Xavier in First Four Wolfpack will play St. Louis in Midwest Regional on Thursday
inside u Blowout loss inspired Virginia’s huge turnaround. page B-7
By Joe Kay
The Associated Press
DAYTON, Ohio — Two missed shots, two quick fouls. T.J. Warren’s second chance at the NCAA Tournament didn’t start very well at all. It ended with the ACC’s top NC State 74 player putting on a show. Xavier 59 The hard-to-guard sophomore forward scored 16 of his 25 points in the second half on Tuesday night, showing why he was chosen as the ACC’s player of the year, and North Carolina State led most of the way in a 74-59 victory over Xavier in the NCAA Tournament’s First Four. N.C. State (22-12) didn’t have much time to celebrate. The 12th-seeded Wolfpack headed to the airport for a two-hour flight to Orlando, Fla., and a game on Thursday against St. Louis in the Midwest Regional. Warren had the most to do with it. He made up for a freshman tournament flop on the same floor a year earlier and prevented Xavier (21-14) from getting any traction in the second half. “I just wanted to come out and be aggressive,”

said Warren, who was 10 of 18 from the field. “My shots wouldn’t fall in the first half, but my teammates did a great job of finding me.” No surprise there. “Eventually in a 40-minute game, he’s going to find a way,” coach Mark Gottfried said. Center Matt Stainbrook led Xavier with 19 points and nine rebounds despite an injured left knee.
Leading scorer Semaj Christon was limited to 14 points, and Xavier made only 2 of 14 shots from beyond the arc. Xavier’s biggest disappointment was its inability to slow down the Wolfpack in the second half, when N.C. State shot 61.5 percent from the field. “We weren’t ourselves today on defense,” Strainbrook said. “We build our identity on defense. When we can’t get stops, it ruins everything else. Overall, it was just a shambles.” Xavier was playing in a familiar arena less than an hour from campus. Familiar, but not entirely friendly. Fans of the Dayton Flyers — a long-time rival — booed loudly as they took the court, making for a mixed welcome with a lot of Musketeer fans in the stands as well. Warren made it all a moot point, helping N.C. State take all the drama out of the game over the final 11 minutes. Ralston Turner added 17 points. The Wolfpack went six years between NCAA appearances before Gottfried got them there three years in a row. This was his youngest and least-

lar is going to give the Aztecs a lot of trouble. It might be the only thing that reporters asked SDSU coach Steve Fisher about, but then again, is there anything else to ask him about the Aggies? Bhullar’s freakish size have made him and his 7-foot-3 brother Tanveer, a freshman at NMSU, into a national storyline. The two Toronto natives even got a story in Sports Illustrated, which focused less on their basketball skills and more on their height. Aside from a brawl after a March 1 overtime loss to Utah Valley, the Bhullar brothers are what is giving NMSU some national attention. And deservedly so, they are probably the biggest brothers to ever live, although I did not confirm that. To his credit, Sim Bhullar has slightly improved his stats since his freshman year, but the big man aver-
ages only 10.3 points per game and 7.9 rebounds. UNM senior forward Cameron Bairstow, who is 7 inches shorter and more than 100 pounds lighter than Bhullar, averages 20.1 points and 7.4 rebounds. Sure, Bhullar’s sheer size can make opposing offenses alter their shots, but it’s not like Bhullar is a scoring and rebounding machine. SDSU has never played anyone that big, but he’s not the only Aggie that is going to give the Aztecs problems. Three players on NMSU’s roster average more points than Bhullar. He’s only a sophomore, so who knows if Bhullar is going to bring the Aggies back to their tournament glory of years past? It’s not likely that he’ll do it this year, but we’ll find out on Thursday if all the talk about him is justified. Let the real madness begin.

pening more is guys going for a second one,” he said. The NL East champion Braves took a double hit with injuries to Medlen and Beachy, both of whom previously had Tommy John surgery. The AL West champion Athletics once again lost Parker to the operation. He was scheduled to start on opening day. Teammate A.J. Griffin might be more fortunate — his sore elbow might heal on its own. To the pitcher whose name is synonymous with the career-saving surgery, more players will follow his path. John earned 288 victories from 1963-89 — after Dr. Frank Jobe performed the pioneering surgery on him in 1974, John won 164 times and never missed a start because of elbow trouble before retiring at age 46. John thinks too many pitchers are putting too much stress on their arms at an early age, well before they ever become pros. He also believes several of the pitchers who are getting hurt this spring had pre-existing conditions. “I’m not a doctor, but the way I deduce it, some of these guys had something wrong last year,” he said. “It just doesn’t make sense that your arm or elbow just would disintegrate in three weeks.”

TAMPA, Fla. — Jarrod Parker, Kris Medlen and Luke Hochevar are out for the season, Patrick Corbin and Brandon Beachy might join them in the operating room. All over spring training, there’s been an outbreak of wrecked elbows and pained pitchers. Next stop, those dreaded words: Tommy John surgery. “It doesn’t surprise me at all,” Tommy John himself said Tuesday. “Tommy John surgery will grow exponentially in the next 50 years.” “I really think there will come a day when if you have 12 pitchers on your staff, 10 will have had Tommy John surgery,” the 70-year-old lefty told The Associated Press from his home in Watertown, N.Y. Still, this recent wave makes Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell wince. “It grabs all of our attention,” he said before his World Series champions played the New York Yankees. “There’s a rash of it going on right now.” “Regardless of who they play for, it’s a sad day when you read about a guy that’s having the surgery,” he said. “You empathize with the guys going down. There’s a long road ahead of them.” As to why so many sudden cases, Farrell isn’t sure. “It makes you scratch your head,” the former big league pitcher said. “I don’t have an explanation.” Stars Stephen Strasburg, Adam Wainwright, Tim Hudson, John Lackey and Joe Nathan are among the dozens of pitchers who have come back strong from the ligament transplant procedure. Young Mets ace Matt Harvey, who threw the first pitch at last summer’s All-Star game, had the surgery in October. He’s working out in camp and hopes to pitch this year. “I think after watching what happened to a couple guys on the Braves, everybody’s always going to so cautious about the recovery, but as a competitor we’re always going to want to get back on the field,” he said Tuesday. One trend Farrell has detected: “What’s hap-

son to make big changes quickly in New York, where the Knicks face salary cap problems. Amare Stoudemire, Tyson Chandler and Andrea Bargnani will all be in the final year of expensive contracts, making them difficult to unload. And they traded their first-round pick to Denver in 2011 to acquire Anthony. Jackson alluded to that, saying the Knicks “were going to have to go out and work the bushes for players this next year.” But he has a vision for how he wants to do it, a change from the Knicks’ way of too frequently adding big-name players who don’t fit any particular style. It’s not just X’s and O’s that have doomed the Knicks during a mostly disastrous decade. It’s the policies of Dolan, who has too often involved himself in basketball decisions. Jackson said he will be accessible and will focus on things such as “how players are treated” and “the kind of culture that’s built.” “This organization has suffered in the past few years from things I think have just been created, by press, by lack of continuity, by lack of solidarity.” It wasn’t like that when Jackson played in New York. Those teams not only thrived on the court but were wellknown and well-liked around the city, players such as Willis Reed, Walt Frazier, Bill Bradley and Dave DeBusschere.
SPORTS MEN’S NCAA TOURNAMENT
Blowout loss inspired Virginia’s turnaround By Hank Kurz Jr.
The Associated Press
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — The worst game of Virginia’s season was also the one that sparked the Cavaliers’ turnaround. Virginia got pounded 87-52 at Tennessee on Dec. 30 — and the drubbing was on national television. The Volunteers scorched Virginia’s defense, making 11 of 18 3-point shots, led by 22 points at halftime and kept pouring it on. In the Cavaliers’ locker room afterward, the chatter about what to do began. Senior Joe Harris said the discussions continued for the next few days, with the Cavaliers realizing they weren’t as talented as some had suggested. The reality also set it that they had no shot at getting the most out of their talent if they continued to play as individuals. “We tried doing it our way where, I wouldn’t say guys we were being selfish, but it was more of an individual approach offensively and defensively.” Harris said this week as he and the Cavaliers began preparing to return to the NCAA Tournament as Atlantic Coast Conference champions and a No. 1 seed. They face Coastal Carolina on Friday night in Raleigh, N.C. “It was humbling,” Harris said. “We got blown out and I think we realized that things needed to change.” With ACC play about to begin, there was still time. The change started with Harris, an all-ACC first-team selection as a junior and the focal point of most opposing defenses, and fellow senior Akil Mitchell. Both were scoring

less than they had the previous season, and were still learning adjusted roles. It extended to guard Malcolm Brogdon, the floor leader, and Anthony Gill, the transfer from South Carolina finally eligible to play after sitting out a season, and took off with the development of freshman point guard London Perrantes. His steadiness with the ball belied his youth and inexperience, and allowed Brogdon to play the scoring guard. “It was a process I had to buy into for sure,” said Mitchell, the team’s top rebounder. “It wasn’t fun for a little while, but I think every guy on this team has had to buy into that and that’s some-
thing special about this team. We all put those egos aside and said we have to do what is best for this team, whether that’s take less shots, if that’s play a different role. That sacrifice was necessary, and once we did that is when you saw our game take another step, and that’s more satisfying than anything else.” When Virginia opened ACC play five days later, they emerged as a virtually different team and won 78-66 at Florida State, their first of three straight victories. After a last-second 69-65 loss at Duke, they won 13 in a row before stumbling at Maryland. But after the loss to the Terrapins, the Cavaliers regrouped and won their first
ACC Tournament in 38 years. Harris was named the most outstanding player of the ACC Tournament, but Mitchell, Brogdon and Gill also played well enough to garner consideration to claim that hardware. “You look at Akil’s defensive performance in that [Duke] game,” coach Tony Bennett said of Mitchell’s effort on Blue Devils’ star Jabari Parker while scoring seven points and pulling down a season-high 15 rebounds. “That was a special one for sure. But that’s the balance, that’s the depth, and that’s what makes a team have a chance to win a championship like they just experienced. I would have had a hard time picking that one.” Harris, especially, has drawn praise from opposing coaches all season. A 16.3 points-per-game scorer last season, he’ll take an 11.7 average into Friday’s second round game against Coastal Carolina, a reduced role that several coaches have highlighted for its unselfishness. Harris scoffs, saying this year was “the best basketball season of my life.” And one that could lead to even bigger things for the Cavaliers. “We knew we could be good if we came together and played with great chemistry, but we didn’t know if that would actually happen,” said Brogdon, whose 12.6 scoring average leads Virginia. “You see a lot of teams with a lot of talent where that doesn’t really happen, and they don’t come together. We have, and we’ve put ourselves in a really good position right now to take advantage of a great opportunity.”

Lobos: Winner may play Kansas on Sunday Continued from Page B-5 visit with him Monday afternoon. “I can’t argue it. I can’t go forward. All I know is what’s in front of me.” He followed that with a veiled attempt to question the validity of the seed, saying the selection committee obviously ignored the team’s larger body of work that included perhaps the toughest schedule in school history and wins over higherseeded teams like San Diego State and Cincinnati. The only certainty is that New Mexico, now 27-6 in Neal’s first season as head coach, will play 10th-seeded Stanford on Friday in St. Louis. The winner would likely meet No. 2 seed Kansas on Sunday with a trip to the Sweet 16 on the line. Stanford (21-12 overall, 10-8 in the Pac-12) finished in a five-way tie for third behind Arizona and UCLA in the Pac12. The Cardinal likely played their way into the NCAA field by reaching the conference
MWC notes The postseason pecking goes as follows: NCAA Tournament, then everything else. Teams not lucky enough to go dancing often end up in the National Invitation Tournament, or NIT. The tournament’s 32-team field was announced Sunday night and no one from the Mountain West was in it. But below that is the College Basketball Invitational. Below that is the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament, or CBI. Only two MWC schools made it into those. The 16-team CBI includes Fresno State and Wyoming. Fresno State will travel to UTEP in Wednesday night’s opening round while Wyoming is at Texas A&M that same night. The tournament’s final two teams will meet in a best-ofthree championship series. The CIT field is filled with lower-tier Division I schools.
tournament semifinals, losing to UCLA after beating Washington State and Arizona State in the first two rounds. They have drawn some similarities to UNM in that they have a lineup built around their post players. Their leading rebounder is 6-foot-7 senior Josh Huestis (11.4 points, 8.3 rebounds), while 6-10 senior Dwight Powell clogs the lane
(14.2 points, 6.9 rebounds). Not that Lobo fans need reminding, but UNM was bounced early from last year’s tournament by 14th-seeded Harvard. The Crimson are coached by Tommy Amaker, a former All-American guard at Duke. Stanford is coached by Johnny Dawkins, another former Duke standout who played
NCAA: Warren struggled as freshman player last year Continued from Page B-5 experienced team: Only two players with tournament experience. They got one of the final at-large bids with a strong closing run, winning five of their last six games, including an upset of Syracuse in the ACC Tournament. Warren was the key. And he really wanted a second chance at the NCAA Tournament. As a freshman last year, he managed only four points as N.C. State lost to Temple 76-72 at the University of Dayton Arena in its opening game. He’s grown a lot in one year, leading the ACC with 24.8 points per game this season and hitting the 40-point mark twice. He got off to a bad start on Tuesday, missing his first two shots and picking up two fouls in the first 4 minutes, 14 seconds. Warren checked back into the game and hit a jumper for his first points at the 11:29 mark. Christon, who was Warren’s roommate at Brewster Academy for one year, kept the Musketeers in it during the first half. He scored off two drives to the basket, starting an 8-1 run. Stainbrook’s reverse layup trimmed it to 27-26 with 2:22 left.
Jordan Vandenberg’s three-point play gave N.C. State a 34-28 advantage at halftime. Dee Davis hit Xavier’s first 3-pointer, and Christon scored on a fast-break lay-in that cut it to 39-37. That’s when Warren took over. “T.J.’s a terrific player,” said point guard Tyler Lewis, who had eight assists and seven points. “We know that sometimes it’s not going to be his best game. We need everybody to step up and make plays. I thought in the second half, T.J. did a tremendous job of hitting some shots.” He had a pair of pull-up jumpers, followed by a steal and a lay-up as N.C. State rebuilt the lead to 51-42. He had another pull-up jumper and a fast-break dunk that made it 57-47 with 7:56 to go. Xavier never got closer than seven points the rest of the way, fading down the stretch. The biggest question for Xavier was how Stainbrook’s left knee would hold up. The Big East’s second-leading rebounder sprained a ligament, sat out the final regular season game and was extremely limited in two Big East conference games. He was back in form, but Xavier didn’t have enough other scoring options to keep up.
in the Atlantic Coast Conference at the same time as Neal did when he attended Georgia Tech. Dawkins recruited Neal’s son, Cullen, in an attempt to lure him to Palo Alto, Calif. The similarities don’t end there. Each team wears roughly the same color, each is respected as a top academic school, and both are unheralded lower seeds coming into the Big Dance. One advantage the Lobos have is Neal’s best friend. Former UNM head coach Steve Alford is now at UCLA. The Bruins beat Stanford three times this season by an average of 17 points. “Unless you guys get my phone records I’m going to say I never talk to him,” Neal joked. “I’ve talked to him quite a bit. I’ll talk to him at least three times a week during the year and I’m sure I’ll talk to him three times a day or four times a day till we play.” Friday’s game will be nationally televised on CBS.

Los Alamos beats Pojoaque The New Mexican
The Los Alamos softball team may have ended Tuesday’s home game against Pojoaque Valley early by mercy rule, but Lady Hilltoppers head coach Roger Anaya was more impressed with his defense. The Lady Hilltoppers scored four runs in the fifth inning to end the game early and pull off a 13-3 nondistrict win over the Elkettes, but Anaya saw a lot of improvement on the defensive end. “Previously, it seemed like we weren’t completing the routine plays and we were giving up some easy plays,” Anaya said. “[Tuesday], all the routine plays were made and even some difficult ones were made. It keeps the pitcher relaxed and keeps people off the bases.” The Lady Hilltoppers (3-4 overall) had a 7-0 lead at the end of three innings. Aleta Marciano went 3-for-4 at the plate with three RBIs and Hannah Mojica
went 2-for-3 with a triple and a double. Kyra Romero went 2-for-3 at the plate for Pojoaque (0-2) and had a triple. Emilee Jones pitched all five innings for Los Alamos. CAPITAL 11, WALATOWA 7 (FIVE INNINGS) CAPITAL 10, WALATOWA 0 The Lady Jaguars swept a home doubleheader over the Lady Cougars in a total of eight innings. In the first game, Mikaila Maese went 2-for-3 at the plate for Capital (2-1) with a double and two RBIs. Jaime Page batted in three runners and pitcher Alexis Gallegos was 2-for-2 at the plate. The first game was slated to start at 3 p.m., but a late 4 p.m. start caused the game to end in the fifth inning so the second one could be played. In the second game, Capital scored 10 unanswered runs before things had to be called after the third frame due to the setting sun. “We ran out of light,” Capital
head coach Ina Mirabal said. Gallegos pitched all eight innings for the Lady Jaguars. RATON 7, ST. MICHAEL’S 4 RATON 7, ST. MICHAEL’S 1 While the host Lady Tigers swept the nondistrict doubleheader, the real winner might be Mother Nature. Teams played in winds that gusted up to 54 mph. There was snow. Then came the nightcap that was played in 34-degree temperatures with a wind chill of 22. St. Michael’s (0-2) outhit Raton 8-7 in the opener and drew nine walks, but left 12 runners on base and committed three errors. It offset a strong outing by sophomore pitcher Ali Berhost, who struck out 10 and walked just one in a six-inning complete game. “It was a game we should have won, especially with the way Allie pitched,” said Roseanne Noedel, the Lady Horsemen head coach. “Raton is a good little team and we battled the snow and the wind.

C Welcome the season with a deceptively simple roasted chicken
Putting all the ingredients for the hog ’n’ hominy salsa verde stew in the slow cooker and letting it simmer is an easy way to make the dish. MATTHEW MEAD/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Pork, hominy and salsa stew will add some heat to dinner By Elizabeth Karmel
The Associated Press
It all started at my friend Anthony’s house not long ago during the beginning the so-called polar vortex. He is a gifted home cook and a food television producer, so he knows his way around a pot. He also is from Texas, and we share a love of tequila, barbecue and anything Tex-Mex. That icy night, Anthony made an amazing pork stew with loads of chilies, cilantro and garlic. The flavors and textures were at once warm, comforting, fresh and exciting. The minute I tasted his stew tucked into a warm flour tortilla, I couldn’t wait to make it again and share it with friends and family. I love hominy, and it is a perfect pairing with pork. Hominy is hard white or yellow corn, specifically maize, which is the type of corn used in making corn meal and other grain products, as opposed to the softer sweet corn, which is the familiar vegetable we steam or grill and eat all summer long. HOG ’N’ HOMINY SALSA VERDE STEW Start to finish: 3 hours (30 minutes active) Servings: 10 4 large poblano peppers 2 red bell peppers 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 cups of chopped red onions 3 to 4 pounds boneless country ribs or pork butt Kosher salt and ground black pepper 1 tablespoon ground cumin 8 large raw tomatillos (about 12 ounces) 6 to 8 large cloves garlic 1 heaping cup fresh cilantro, stems and leaves ½ cup lime juice (about 4 limes) 1 quart low-sodium chicken stock 12-ounce bottle beer (any variety) ½ cup jarred sliced jalapenos, or more to taste Two 15-ounce cans hominy, drained Flour tortillas, tortilla chips or rice Preparation: Heat the oven to 400 F. Place the poblano and bell peppers on a rimmed baking sheet and roast in the oven until they blister, about 15 to 20 minutes, using tongs to turn them halfway through. Transfer the roasted peppers to a heat-safe bowl, then cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap. Let the peppers steam for 7 to 10 minutes, then remove them and slip off the skins. Cut out the stems, then remove and discard the seeds. Finely chop the roasted red peppers. Set the poblanos aside. Heat a large Dutch oven or heavy duty pasta pot over medium. Add the olive oil and the onions. Saute for about 10 minutes, or until the onions become translucent. Season the pork with salt, pepper and the cumin. Add pork to the pot with the onions and brown on all sides. Meanwhile, peel the tomatillos and cut into quarters. In a blender, combine the tomatillos, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, poblanos and 1 teaspoon of salt. Puree for a few minutes or until liquefied. This may take a few tries and you may need to stir the contents of the blender a few times to make the tomatillos and cilantro blend together. Set aside. Once the pork is browned, add the chicken stock, the beer and the pureed tomatillo mixture. Stir well, then add the jalapeños and reserved red peppers. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 2 to 3 hours, or until the pork breaks into pieces easily and the liquid has reduced by about a fifth. About 30 minutes before the stew is done, stir in the hominy.

This simple roasted chicken with fresh herb sauce is cooked with the skin on, then removed afterward. MATTHEW MEAD/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
By Sara Moulton
The Associated Press
ur spring feasts — often centered around Passover and Easter — typically call for a center-of-the-plate star like brisket or lamb. Of course they’re delicious, but both can seriously ramp up the fat and calories in a meal that tends to put the groan into groaning board even before the main course is served. So how about roasted chicken instead? Wait a minute, you say. If you eat the bird with its skin on, you might as well be eating lamb. And yet there’s no way to cook a chicken properly without the skin. Looks like a problem, but here’s a solution: roast the chicken with the skin on, then remove the skin after the chicken is cooked. And, if you roast the chicken my no-fuss way, you’ll find yourself with ample time to devote to the rest of the meal. I learned the best way to roast a chicken during my restaurant days. Every evening just before service began, the whole staff would sit down for “family meal.” If chicken was on the menu, we’d simply throw several 31/2-pounders into the oven — which was always cranked to 500 F — and blast away. Given that we were cooking only for ourselves, there was nothing fancy about how we prepped those birds. Everything we’d learned in cooking school about the need to truss, turn and baste a roasting chicken turned out to be unnecessary. All we did was sprinkle them with salt
and pepper, rub them with a little oil, and roast them at high heat. Forty minutes later they were done. We let them rest for 15 minutes, then carved them and moistened the pieces with the juices that had pooled on the platter. It was almost too simple — and it certainly was not traditional — but the result was delicious. There is, however, one serious caveat when it comes to cooking a chicken at a temperature this high: your oven must be clean. A dirty oven blazing away at 450 F (which is what I call for here) will smoke up the whole house. Also, be sure to place the bird in a heavy roasting pan with sides so the chicken juices don’t splatter over the sides and burn on the bottom of the oven. Finally, the resting time is key. After you pull the bird out of the oven, its juices need time to redistribute. If you don’t let it rest but carve it right away, all the juices will come streaming out and you’ll end up with dry meat. Happily, some of those juices pool on the platter during the resting period anyway, and they add a ton of flavor to the sauce. And these chickens — minus their skin — cry out for a sauce. For that, I took my inspiration from the Italians and their bistecca alla Fiorentina, which is grilled steak finished with extra-virgin olive oil and a squeeze of lemon. I added some fresh herbs and those juices from the bottom of the platter and — Glory be! — the husband just about forgot to complain about the lack of skin. It was a small but welcome miracle in a season of miracles.
SIMPLE ROASTED CHICKEN WITH FRESH HERB SAUCE Start to finish: 1 hour 30 minutes (20 minutes active) Servings: 8 Two 3½-pound chickens, trimmed of excess fat Olive oil cooking spray Salt and ground black pepper ¼ cup fresh lemon juice ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano Preparation: Heat the oven to 450 degrees Farenheit. Spray the chickens all over with the cooking spray, then season them with salt and pepper. In a large roasting pan, place the chickens, breast side up, side by side. Roast, uncovered, until a meat thermometer inserted into the leg-thigh joint registers 165 F, about 55 minutes. While the chickens are roasting, in a small bowl, whisk the lemon juice with salt and pepper to taste until the salt is dissolved. Whisk in the olive oil, thyme and oregano, then set aside. When the chickens are done, transfer them to a large platter and cover them loosely with foil. Let them rest for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, pour any drippings from the roasting pan into a fat separator. Add the chicken juices from the fat separator to the herb mixture and discard the fat. After the chicken has rested, remove and discard the skin and cut up the chicken. Whisk the juices from the platter into the herb mixture. Divide the chicken between serving plates and spoon some of the herb mixture over each portion of chicken.
