Russian troops take over Crimean Peninsula; separatist split feared

As voters prepare to head to the polls, mayoral hopefuls make final push to connect with undecided, supporters

By Alison Smale and David M. Herszenhorn The New York Times

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine — Russian armed forces seized control of Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula on Saturday, as the Russian Parliament granted President Vladimir Putin broad authority to use military force in response to the political upheaval that dislodged a Kremlin ally and installed a new, staunchly pro-Western government. Russian troops stripped of identifying insignia but using military vehicles bearing the license plates of Russia’s Black Sea force swarmed the major thoroughfares of Crimea, encircled government buildings, closed the main airport and seized communication hubs, solidifying what began Friday as a covert effort to control the largely pro-Russian region. In Moscow, Putin convened the upper house of Parliament to grant him authority to use military force to protect Russian citizens and soldiers not only in Crimea but throughout Ukraine. Both actions — military and

Mayoral candidate Patti Bushee talks about the upcoming election with Santa Fe resident Asher Singer on Saturday.

Bushee worked off a list of registered Democrats who are frequent voters — a strategy that put her face-to-face with at least one voter who said he was leaning toward voting for Gonzales. “Let me talk to my voter for a minute if you wouldn’t mind,” Bushee told a reporter before talking to a barefooted Asher Singer in private. Other potential voters welcomed Bushee into their homes. “We like to say, ‘May the best woman win.’ Because I’m the only woman in the race,” Bushee told Aide Salas, as Salas’ two young children looked on. “That’s good. We’re all for women here,” Salas said. “We hope you’ll consider me. Will you go out and vote Tuesday?” Bushee asked. “I will,” Salas responded. “Will you consider me?” Bushee asked. “Yes ma’am,” Salas said. Dimas urged dozens of supporters at a rally and dance Saturday night to call 10 people each and ask them to vote for him and then ask those people to do the same. “I think a lot of people in this city are going to be surprised” by Tuesday’s election results, he said. “We have the momentum. We have you. And we have community.” Among the attendees was for-

ith only 72 hours left until election day, Santa Fe’s mayoral and City Council candidates spent Saturday canvassing in the rain, calling voters on the phone and hoping that their efforts over the last several months pay off at the polls Tuesday. Two of the three mayoral candidates, Patti Bushee and Javier Gonzales, knocked on doors on the south side of Santa Fe, including those of the estimated 4,000 new voters who were annexed into the city in January. The third mayoral candidate, Bill Dimas, threw what he called a “pre-election rally” with mariachi music and a live band at the Lodge at Santa Fe. While Bushee reached out to undecided voters, Gonzales connected with people who have either expressed an interest or a commitment to his candidacy. “I wanted to come out and personally thank you for your support,” Gonzales told voter Fran Dunaway, who hugged Gonzales when she saw him. “Of course!” she responded. “We’re working until the very end. Spread the word to your friends and your family,” Gonzales said. “Definitely. Definitely,” she said. “We’re on your side.”

Carlton White Kithil wrote these sweet opening lines to a poem in a grassy meadow up a trail leading from the Aspen Vista picnic area toward the ski basin above Santa Fe. A nature lover and outdoorsman, Kithil spent many hours in the small meadow, which became his sanctuary when he was battling pineoblastoma, a form of brain cancer. In the winter, he even built snow shelters there. Kithil died April 26, 2000, at age 22 and since then family and friends Carlton have often visited the spot, especially White Kithil on Christmas Day. They always called it Carl’s Meadow. A wooden sign appeared, high in the aspens that surround the 10,500-foot meadow, and many hikers who wander through there came to call it by the same name.

NATION&WORLD Carnival’s mud madness Revelers ‘get dirty’ in Brazilian town’s annual street party By Jenny Barchfield The Associated Press

PARATY, Brazil xtravagant costumes need not apply at the Bloco da Lama Carnival street party, where revelers dispense with pirate, princess and devil disguises in favor of thick, head-to-toe layers of black mud. Thousands of revelers, their bikinis and shorts invisible beneath the black coating and their hair frozen into mud Mohawks, danced, drank and flung mud balls as sound trucks blasted bone-jarring rhythms in this colonial Brazilian town. Saturday’s fun was contagious and just about everyone got into it, from sculptured gym bunnies rubbing down their impeccable abs, to fuller figured people smearing handfuls of the stuff over spare tires, to old ladies and children giddy with disbelief that the whole thing was actually happening. Even a Belgian shepherd named Thunder rolled in the mud, his fuzzy auburn fur temporarily as slick and black as an otter’s. Gangs of mud-covered revelers called out to the clean, “want a hug” and tried to catch unsullied passers-by in muddy group embraces. Everyone struggled to snap selfies with smartphones that were getting dirtier by the second. Fans of the Bloco da Lama, which literally translates as “mud street party,” insist the event is among the most democratic of the thousands of booze-filled parties that take over Brazil’s streets throughout Carnival. “You don’t need to buy anything, you don’t need to spend any money, your costume is here for the taking,” said 28-year-old actress Diana Rodrigues, as she pointed to the naturally occurring mud banks along the


The New York Times

UNITED NATIONS — After Uganda criminalized homosexuality, the White House immediately warned that the law would “complicate” the country’s relationship with Washington, and the Netherlands and Norway cut off bits of development aid. When Nigeria banned samesex unions and began arresting those it suspected of being gay, the European Union’s Foreign Ministry sternly reminded its president of his “obligations” under international law. And after Russia passed a measure widely seen as an effort to squelch its gay rights movement, the U.N. secretary-general, Ban Ki-moon, used his speech at the Winter Olympics to condemn attacks on gays and lesbians. The issue of gay rights has catapulted up the diplomatic agenda in recent years, as international organizations have extended rights protections to gays and lesbians and donor nations have

Mud-covered revelers dance and sing Saturday at the Bloco da Lama or ‘mud street party’ in Paraty, Brazil.

Jabaquara beach in Paraty. “The whole point of Carnival is to transform into someone else for a few days to do things you would never do in real life. And being covered in mud transforms you in just that way.” Renato Delavia, a 37-year-old lawyer, agreed the mud was liberating. “My daughter is looking at me like I’m a completely different person, like some kind of monster,” said Delavia, the whites of his eyes and his teeth popping in vibrant contrast with the rest of his slick ebony face. “It’s kind of cool.” “He’s weird,” said his 5-year-old daughter, Valentina, eyeing her father warily.

faced challenges in dealing with governments that discriminate. Anti-gay legislation is nothing new. The United Nations estimates that 78 countries ban homosexuality, and seven countries allow the death penalty for those convicted of having consensual homosexual relationships. Until a few years ago, the issue barely registered in diplomatic affairs. Global outcry was limited to protest petitions organized by gay-advocacy groups. “What’s unique about this moment is the compassion and public attention there is at the global level,” said Jessica Stern, executive director of the New York-based International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission. But to what end? Conservative governments around the world openly flout the warnings of international leaders, developing new measures to repress their citizens based on sexual orientation. There is little that international organizations like the United

With his crown of vines and skirt of swampy vines tucked into his Speedo, Stephen McCarthy looked even weirder. “I’m ready to go pillaging,” said McCarthy, a 25-year-old actuary who hails from Ireland. “I feel invincible, I feel like a Druid.” The Bloco da Lama was founded in 1986 by two local teens who became local Carnival sensations after they appeared in the city’s historic downtown covered in mud following a crab hunting expedition in a nearby mangrove forest, said Rodrigues, who was hired by Paraty’s City Hall to explain the history of the “bloco” to foreigners, who now come from as far afield as Italy and Germany.

Nations can do, except issue statements of concern. And rich countries like the United States confront awkward new questions about how to handle important gay-bashing allies. Take Uganda, for instance, the recipient of significant U.S. aid, for both the military and development. The Obama administration has said it is reviewing its aid programs to Uganda, and Secretary of State John Kerry said Friday through his spokeswoman that he had spoken to the Ugandan president, Yoweri Museveni, to reiterate that message. Kerry earlier likened the law to South Africa’s apartheid-era ban on interracial unions. So did South Africa’s influential Anglican archbishop emeritus, Desmond Tutu. But whether the United States will impose punitive sanctions on Uganda remains to be seen. U.S. development aid includes funding for AIDS treatment, among other things. Military cooperation is aimed in part at the hunt for the warlord Joseph

Kony and dealings with terrorist groups in Somalia. A senior administration official said Friday in an interview that U.S. policy objectives and the interests of Ugandans were being weighed in “a thoughtful, deliberate way.” At the United Nations, Ban expressed alarm. After meeting with the Ugandan envoy last week, Ban issued a statement calling on Uganda to revise or repeal the measure, a prospect that seems unlikely. Even the United Nations needs Museveni’s cooperation on many conflicts in and around Uganda, including the one in South Sudan. For his part, Museveni has so far played to his domestic audience, rebuffing outside meddling and saying that his country would do fine without aid. There is plenty of aid to Africa coming from China, which tends not to wag its finger about human rights. Museveni’s bluster also showed the limits of international influence and the backlash that international support can engender.

DENVER — One person died and 30 others were injured in a massive pileup on Interstate 25 as a band of heavy snow moved through south Denver on Saturday, authorities said. Police say 104 vehicles were involved in crashes along a roughly 2-mile stretch of highway as a short but intense burst of snow slammed the area. The northbound lanes were closed for several hours, but the interstate has since reopened. The injured were taken to nearby hospitals. Drivers and passengers who were not hurt were put on a city bus to speak with accident investigators, and some wrecked cars were towed to a nearby high school, the Denver Post reported. Meanwhile, about 100 snowplows and four large tankers with deicing fluid were busy clearing roads throughout Denver, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation.

BOSTON — South Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, the second-largest in the country after New York’s, could be on the verge of a historic breakthrough — the participation of a gay advocacy group that had been banned from the parade for two decades. Details were still being worked out Saturday, but Mayor Martin J. Walsh, who had threatened to boycott the parade if gay groups were excluded, said in a statement that he was “optimistic that a solution can be reached.” And Philip J. Wuschke Jr., the parade’s organizer, said in an interview, “It will happen.” But the gay advocacy group, MassEquality, was balking at a provision in the terms of a tentative deal. The organizers had said that the gay group could march under its organization’s banner, but only if its members did not wear T-shirts or carry placards that identified their sexual orientation.

New Egypt cabinet sworn in ahead of presidential vote CAIRO — Egypt’s new interim government was sworn in Saturday, a lightly reshuffled cabinet with familiar faces that keeps powerful ministers in charge of the country’s security and military services in place ahead of an anticipated presidential election. The new cabinet, Egypt’s sixth government since its 2011 revolt against autocrat Hosni Mubarak, retains Field Marshal Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi as defense minister. Many believe the wildly popular el-Sissi, who led the July 3 overthrow of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, will run for president. The change of government before the presidential vote appeared orchestrated to curb rising criticism of the outgoing military-backed cabinet, which was accused of failing to stem widening labor strikes and continued protests. The new lineup by new interim Prime Minister Ibrahim Mehlib largely removed cabinet members belonging to political parties formed after the 2011 revolt, replacing them with technocrats or businessmen. The new cabinet also would spare el-Sissi the disruption associated with forming a new government if he becomes president. Parliamentary elections are expected by the summer, after which a new government is likely to be formed.

N.Y. man charged after dogs found dead in garage fire MINEOLA, N.Y. — Thirteen pit bulls were found dead in a one-car garage that went up in flames and a New York man is facing 18 counts of felony and misdemeanor animal fighting charges. A spokesman for Nassau County prosecutors says Saturday that Anthony Reddick was a tenant in the Long Island home where investigators discovered dogs and dogfighting apparatus following the Friday afternoon fire. Spokesman Shams Tarek says the 53-year-old man fled the scene when the fire broke out but was arrested Saturday afternoon. He says investigators found the dead pit bulls and dog fighting equipment after executing a search warrant. He says three other pit bulls were found alive. New Mexican wire services

Ukraine: Russia has violated law, U.S. says Continued from Page A-1

Friends and family members of Carl Kithil, who died in 2000 at age 22, are asking the U.S. Board of Geographic Names to formally name this grassy meadow near the Aspen Vista picnic area Carl’s Meadow. Kithil spent many hours in the meadow as he was battling brain cancer. COURTESY ROBERT JULYAN

Meadow: State panel seeks public input Continued from Page A-1 Now they are asking the U.S. Board of Geographic Names to formally name the area for Kithil. If the board agrees, the name will appear on U.S. Forest Service and Department of Interior maps, and live on in perpetuity. Robert Julyan, chairman of the New Mexico Geographic Names Committee, said the decision depends heavily on local use and preference. He is asking the public to tell him just how common the use of the name is. Dave Gold, who knows the area like the back of his hand, confirmed, “We all call it Carl’s Meadow,” referring to the members of the Santa Fe Hiking Meetup Group. He said there’s a view of the city from the meadow, and in the spring it blossoms with wildflowers and, it’s “spectacular, actually.”

Musician and nature lover The son of Jean and Philip Kithil, Carl Kithil graduated from Santa Fe Preparatory in June 1996, and then attended the University of Colorado at Boulder. He withdrew after his cancer diagnosis. In addition to loving the outdoors, Kithil was a musician who played the piano, bass and trombone. One of his former bandmates, J.Q. Whitcomb, has a trumpet tribute to him (“Carl’s Meadow”) on a new album along with video taken at the meadow ( projects/693953086/jq-whitcomb-and-fivebelow-the-new-album?ref=discovery). Friend Casey Justice said Friday, “Carl inspired me and a lot of people who knew him to live every moment to its fullest. He set an example of excellence in everything he did, whether it was music, photography, skiing, or simply being a good person, that we all strive for in our own lives.” Robin Abeles called him “one awesome amazing friend.” The two met in kindergarten and grew up together on the lakes and mountains of the Southwest. Their families spent summers on Heron Lake, and skied, hiked and backpacked together the rest of the year. “Carl was always the leader of the pack,” Abeles said in an email. “He pushed the limits in whatever we could do, sail farther in stronger wind, climb peaks, jump taller cliffs at Abiquiú, swim farther, ski more days, get more air, wake up earlier to see the sunrise or stay up all night to see it rise, or wake up to see it rise from the top of Lake Peak — and we always had to watch the sunset. That was very important. I spent my whole life chasing the dude up and down mountains. He was kinda my hero I guess.” Abeles and another buddy, Topher McDougal, both recalled their eigth-grade class trip to Arizona’s Havasupai Canyon. Some of the girls in the class were struggling toward the end of the 10-mile hike out of the canyon. After Kithil reached the top, he dropped his pack and went back to help a classmate with her’s. Again and again he did this. “That was the type of guy he was,” Abeles said. “I followed suit and I remember taking Sarah Bailey’s pack off her back and she said, ‘You just want to be like Carl.’ Yup, guess she was right. The dude just set the bar so high in so many ways.” McDougal said he and Kithil met on that trip. At first he considered Kithil’s heroics as “a stunt to impress girls.” But, he said, “That was not his style. There was just no ego in him — in the colloquial sense — as far as I ever could see over the next eight years I knew him.” McDougal and Kithill were part of a group of guys dedicated to outdoors adventures, McDougal said, “and Carl was in many ways its heart.” Many of them also played in bands together around town. McDougal remembers that he, Abeles and Kithil played an original — if not very accomplished — composition for their senior talent show. “But for me,” he said in an email, “I always felt at my most comfortable on a camping trip with that group. It included Carl, of course, but also Robin, Matt Moon, Sean O’Friel, Chris Holden, Casey Justice, and a bunch of others. None of us live close together any more. We’ve more or less scattered to the four corners of the States. But I know that there’s a bond there, and I feel it every time I go on a hike or a bike ride or just watch a sunset. I know that the others feel it, too.

Kithil, pictured skiing in Colorado, loved the outdoors. ‘I realize I have an infinite source from which to draw strength and I continue to face each day with the attitude that I can overcome anything that gets in my way,’ he wrote in the last entry of the journal he kept during his illness.

The flora are gone and await a frost but aspens find strength in this season and regenerate their shapely canopy. A fly could see this entire meadow in under two minutes, yet he hangs around me because he’s happy there. Covering ground isn’t important for

It used to be more explicitly associated with Carl. When I would feel pain in my lungs biking uphill, I would remember trying to follow Carl up Monte Sol on our long trail runs for track and field, and somehow that turned every breath into something joyful and exquisite, if still painful. But now, it’s less particular, and more like having access to a state of mind that he discovered, claimed, and invited us all to share.” Kithil was also “completely hilarious.” Abeles said. “He’d wear lederhosen with this bike helmet that he’d strap a bullhorn to and read The Joys of Yiddish at the top of his lungs, yelling in a German accent.” Abeles said he tries to live with “Carl’s mentality of complete awe and gratefulness of the mountains and nature and life and humor and music.” People sometimes say that Kithil is now a raven or bear and, Abeles added, “I’ve seen ravens on the ridge do barrel rolls when I summit and that could be him, but mostly Carl is as reminder to live fully in every moment.” The last entry in the journal Kithil kept during his illness was as positive as his life: “I realize I have an infinite source from which to draw strength and I continue to face each day with the attitude that I can overcome anything that gets in my way.” “And he did,” McDougal said. Abeles and McDougal worked together to officially name the high-altitude field that had become Kithil’s refuge “Carl’s Meadow.” Abeles said that after he posted on Facebook a photo of himself sitting in the meadow, Kithil’s mother replied, noting that the local chapter of the Sierra Club was calling one of its day hikes the “Carl’s Meadow hike.” McDougal made a comment saying, “Wouldn’t it be cool if the USGS [U.S. Geological Survey] would recognize it too?” Abeles researched information on submitting new place names and forwarded it to McDougal (“because he’s really good with that kind of stuff”) and McDougal took it from there.

Strong personal attachment Julyan said his New Mexico Geographic Names Committee has been asked by the U.S. Board on Geographic Names to make a recommendation on whether to name the place Carl’s Meadow. The board received the request last September and referred it to the state committee. His first job, Julyan said, was to find out whether the feature already had a name (it didn’t) and what local people prefer it to be called. In New Mexico, he said, most features are already named. “Any place where people live close to the land will be a high density of names,” he said. Native American people, he added, “name everything.” And Hispanics have a lot of local names for places, “although they don’t tend to find their way onto maps.” Part of the process, he said, involves contacting the tribes, as well as government agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service,

since the meadow is on its land. The committee is also required to consult with county commissioners. Julyan said he and his wife hiked into the meadow where they met some people with a local Meetup group who told them it was called Carl’s Meadow. “That’s really important,” Julyan said. “It’s validation that the name is in local use.” The hikers told them about the sign. Julyan, who has been involved with place names for 30 years, is responsible for the revised edition of the reference work The Place Names of New Mexico, as well as The Mountains of New Mexico, New Mexico’s Wilderness Areas and Best Hikes with Children in New Mexico. He said he wrote to Gold asking Meetup members to contact him about the naming. He also said that some Sierra Club hikes mention Carl’s Meadow and he has spoken with a club representative. Unless something unforeseen comes up, “I don’t foresee any delays,” Julyan said, in submitting the committee’s recommendation. If the meadow were in the wilderness, naming it would be problematic because U.S. policy does not favor naming wild places. “The feeling is that one of the characteristics of the wilderness is to get a sense that people haven’t been there before,” Julyan explained. And sometimes proposals are frivolous, Julyan pointed out. Take for example the suggestion to rename the iconic Cerro Pedernal in Northern New Mexico after the famous artist Georgia O’Keeffe shortly after her death. “That didn’t happen,” he said, “and O’Keeffe would have hated it.” Current policy is not to name a feature after a well-known person until they’ve been dead for five years or more, so the U.S. doesn’t end up with places named “Elvis Peak or something like that,” Julyan explained. One of the best examples of a hasty, illconsidered naming, he believes, is Mount McKinley, the highest peak in North America, which was named by a gold prospector for William McKinley, then a vice presidential candidate. McKinley “never saw the peak. He never cared to see the peak,” Julyan said. “It’s a horrible name.” The feature should have been given a native name such Denali peak, Julyan said, and,“That’s why it’s important to do due consideration.” In this case, however, “This young man had a strong personal attachment [to the mountain meadow] and that puts it in a different category.” As chairman of the committee, “I’m not supposed to vote,” Julyan said, “But I think you can tell what my feelings are.”

parliamentary — were a direct rebuff to President Barack Obama, who on Friday pointedly warned Russia to respect Ukraine’s territorial integrity. Obama accused Russia of a “breach of international law” and condemned the country’s military intervention, calling it a “clear violation” of Ukrainian sovereignty. In Crimea, scores of heavily armed soldiers fanned out across the center of the regional capital, Simferopol. They wore green camouflage uniforms with no identifying marks, but spoke Russian and were clearly part of a Russian mobilization. In Balaklava, a district of Sevastopol, a long column of military vehicles blocking the road to a border post bore Russian plates. Large pro-Russia crowds rallied in the eastern Ukrainian cities of Donetsk and Kharkiv, where there were reports of violence. In Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, fears grew within the new provisional government that separatist upheaval would fracture the country just days after a three-month period of civil unrest had ended with the ouster of President Viktor Yanukovych, the Kremlin ally who fled to Russia. In addition to the risk of open war, it was a day of frayed nerves and set-piece political appeals that recalled ethnic conflicts of past decades in the former Soviet bloc, from the Balkans to the Caucasus. Obama, who had warned Russia on Friday that “there will be costs” if it violated Ukraine’s sovereignty, spoke with Putin for 90 minutes Saturday, according to the White House, and urged Putin to withdraw his forces back to its bases in Crimea and to stop “any interference” in other parts of Ukraine. In a statement afterward, the White House said the U.S. would suspend participation in preparatory meetings for the G8 economic summit to be held in Sochi, Russia, in June and warned of “greater political and economic isolation” for Russia. The Kremlin offered its own description of the call, in which it said Putin spoke of “a real threat to the lives and health of Russian citizens” in Ukraine and warned that “in case of any further spread of violence to Eastern Ukraine and Crimea, Russia retains the right to protect its interests and the Russian-speaking population of those areas.” In Britain, Prime Minister David Cameron said “there can be no excuse for outside military intervention” in Ukraine. At the United Nations, the Security Council held an emergency meeting on Ukraine for the second time in two days. The U.S. ambassador, Samantha Power, called for an international observer mission, urged Russia to “stand down” and took a dig at the Russian ambassador, Vitaly I. Churkin, on the issue of state sovereignty, which the Kremlin frequently invokes in criticizing the West over its handling of Syria and other disputes. “Russian actions in Ukraine are violating the sovereignty of Ukraine and pose a threat to peace and security,” she said. The secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, also spoke with Putin on Saturday and described himself as “gravely concerned” and urged Putin to negotiate with officials in Kiev. Yanukovych’s refusal, under Russian pressure, to sign new political and free trade agreements with the European

Union last fall set off the civil unrest that last month led to the deaths of more than 80 people, and ultimately unraveled his presidency. The country’s new interim government has said it will revive those accords. Ukraine’s acting president, Oleksandr Turchynov, said at a briefing in Kiev on Saturday evening that he had ordered Ukraine’s armed forces “to full combat readiness.” A Ukrainian military official in Crimea said Ukrainian soldiers had been told to “open fire” if they came under attack by Russian troops or others. Officials in Kiev demanded that Russia pull back its forces, and confine them to the military installations in Crimea that Russia has long leased from Ukraine. “The presence of Russian troops in Crimea now is unacceptable,” said acting Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk. Decrying the Russian deployment as a “provocation,” he added, “We call on the government of the Russian Federation to immediately withdraw its troops, return to the place of deployment and stop provoking civil and military confrontation in Ukraine.” Sergei Tigipko, a former deputy prime minister of Ukraine and one-time ally of Yanukovych, and still an influential member of Parliament, said he flew to Moscow in hopes of brokering a truce. The political drama began in the morning, when the pro-Russia prime minister of Crimea, Sergei Aksyonov, declared that he had sole control over the military and the police, and appealed to Putin for Russian help in safeguarding the region. He also said a public referendum on independence would be held on March 30. The Kremlin quickly issued a statement saying that Aksyonov’s plea “would not be ignored,” and within hours the upper chamber of Russia’s Parliament had authorized military action. The authorization cited Crimea, where Russia maintains important military installations, but covered the use of Russian forces in the entire “territory of Ukraine,” and its time frame extended indefinitely, “until the normalization of the sociopolitical environment in the country.” Parliament also asked Putin to withdraw Russia’s ambassador to the United States. As soldiers mobilized across the peninsula, the region’s two main airports were closed, with civilian flights canceled, and they were guarded by heavily armed men in military uniforms. Similar forces surrounded the regional Parliament building and the rest of the government complex in downtown Simferopol, as well as numerous other strategic locations, including communication hubs and a main bus station. Crimea, while part of Ukraine, has enjoyed a large degree of autonomy under an agreement with the federal government in Kiev since shortly after Ukrainian independence from the Soviet Union. The strategically important peninsula, which has been the subject of military disputes for centuries, has strong historic, linguistic and cultural ties to Russia. The population of roughly two million is predominantly Russian, followed by a large number of Ukrainians, and Crimean Tatars, people of Turkic-Muslim origin. Outpourings of pro-Russia sentiment were also underway in eastern Ukraine.

Javier Gonzales talks with resident Fran Dunaway on Saturday about Tuesday’s election. LUIS SÁNCHEZ SATURNO/THE NEW MEXICAN

Election: Some candidates go out in rain while others take day off Continued from Page A-1 mer City Councilor Molly Whitted, who said she’s known Dimas all her life. “I’ve been around politics for a long, long time. I’m telling you, this is the biggest opportunity for Santa Feans in their entire lives to put this guy in as mayor,” she said. “He’s honest. He’s got integrity. He’s a man of his word. He’s committed his entire life to public service one way or another.” Dimas, who was the lead singer of a rock ‘n’ roll band in his youth, took the microphone at one point and belted out a few songs, including “La Bamba,” which he called “the Santa Fe national anthem.” The one-on-one contact between the mayoral candidates and voters winds down what has been a closely watched and sometimes hostile race with no incumbent. The winner will replace two-term Mayor David Coss, who is not seeking reelection. Among the biggest issues in the mayoral contest has been the involvement of political action committees and other groups who are spending private dollars to support the candidacy of Gonzales despite his repeated requests that they stay out of the

race, which marks the first time that the candidates run under the city’s public financing system. Gonzales said the involvement of PACs hasn’t been an issue for voters he’s encountered on the campaign trail. “We have found largely in our going door-to-door and on the phone calls that the PACs just haven’t really resonated to a lot of people. I think that they believe us when we say we’re running our own campaign, and they like it when our own campaign is reaching out to them,” he said. Meanwhile, some council candidates ventured into the rain to meet with potential voters while others took the day off. “I was resting,” said Marie Campos, who is running against Angelo Jaramillo and incumbent Carmichael Dominguez in District 3. “I think we’ve knocked on most of the doors in the district.” Jaramillo, son of former Mayor Debbie Jaramillo, said most of his campaigning Saturday involved reaching out to voters on the

telephone. “It was a little difficult to get out there because of the rain and everything,” he said. Signe Lindell, who is running against Michael Segura in District 1, said she devoted part of her morning to thanking supporters who had allowed her to put campaign signs in their yards. But Lindell said she spent most of the day reflecting on the last several months of the campaign before driving to Albuquerque

for a wedding. “I kind of took the day off and relaxed and thought about the whole process of what we’ve done. I enjoyed the day,” she said. Bushee, who has been feeling

under the weather, said she plans to keep knocking on doors “until I can’t.” “Every day is critical,” she said. “A lot of folks have early voted, but a lot of folks are still

undecided.” As of 2:30 p.m. Friday, nearly 2,200 voters had voted early, according to the City Clerk’s Office. A member of Gonzales’

Quiet revolt signals shift in how big money shapes policy

Freedom Partners, a trade association composed of about 200 business executives and entrepreneurs, most of whom attend the Kochs’ twice-yearly conferences, has emerged as the dominant club on the right. It is focusing not on candidate contributions but on political nonprofit groups that do not disclose their donors. Unlike most Republican outside groups, which are controlled chiefly by former party officials, Freedom Partners is overseen by a board of current and former Koch aides, who advise donors on where to commit their funds and provide strategic guidance to grantees. Another advantage, donors say, is that, unlike the advertising-focused super-PACs and nonprofits with party ties, clubs like the Democracy Alliance and Freedom Partners fund an array of causes. Freedom Partners alone funds dozens of organizations, including groups that focus on long-term grass-roots organizing, political data and Hispanic outreach — all areas in which conservative donors have clamored for greater investment after the 2012 debacle. Most appealing, say members of the group, is the involvement of the Kochs. The two brothers — who together run the second-largest privately held corporation in the country — are regarded as successful peers who share their libertarian view and have withstood heated criticism from Obama, other prominent Democrats and the news media. The Kochs have worked to personally court potential donors to their political efforts, emphasizing their own backgrounds in business and focus on accountability. It remains to be seen whether greater donor involvement will make any of the groups more effective at winning elections: Virtually every large right-leaning, outside-spending organization posted a losing record in 2012, regardless of who sat on the board.

EPA poised to take action to cut smog By Jeff Plungis and Brian Wingfield Bloomberg News

WASHINGTON — The Environmental Protection Agency plans to unveil new regulations Monday to reduce smog from automobiles, including cutting by two-thirds the level of sulfur in gasoline, people familiar with the agency’s deliberations said. The EPA is expected to stick to the broad targets included in a proposed rule published last year that would lower sulfur in gasoline to 10 parts per million from the current 30 parts, the three people said. New limits will also be imposed on tailpipe emissions. “This is the most significant move to protect public health that the EPA will make this year,” said Frank O’Donnell, president of Clean Air Watch. “There is literally no more effective tool to fight smog. Every American will breathe easier because of these standards.” Supporters of the rules say they could be one of President Barack Obama’s most significant environmental initiatives. Smog has been linked to asthma, lung cancer and heart disease. The new regulations were the subject of years of conflict between automakers, which support cleaner fuels that lower their costs, and the oil industry, which will bear billions of dollars in extra costs. Sulfur occurs naturally in crude oil and can build up on a vehicle’s catalytic converter, making a device that is designed to reduce smog-forming pollutants less effective over time, O’Donnell said. The oil industry will have to pay an estimated $10 billion in capital costs and $2.4 billion in annual compliance costs, American Petroleum Institute President and Chief Executive Officer Jack Gerard wrote on Wednesday in a letter to supporters about the pending announcement. The Washington-based trade group has projected the regulations could increase gasoline prices by up to 9 cents a gallon.

Our view B-2 My view B-3, B-4, B-5



Water too precious to waste in mining I wonder how far 710,000 gallons of water per year (the figure set forth in the La Bajada Mesa strip mine application) would go toward sustaining the ever-growing number of households in the N.M. 14 area whose wells have already been compromised or ruined by development and drought, the households which already depend, to some degree, if not completely, upon water from the Santa Fe County facility in question? Having lived most of my adult life in this area, I have witnessed the drying up of many domestic wells. The combination of unbridled development in areas of questionable water supply, our ongoing drought and, yes, climate change,

has contributed to a severe water shortage in our area. In 1978, when the first well was drilled on my property, the depth of the well was 200 feet, with an output of 15 gallons per minute. By 1998, the water table had dropped enough to render that well useless, and a new well was drilled. Its depth is 485 feet; the output, one gallon per minute when it produces water. Well water is only used for household use and water for my horse, dogs, cats and wild birds. No well water is used for outdoor vegetation. My daily habits have come to include being very frugal with both my use of water and the disposal of gray water. I would not dream of washing a car

on my property and rarely have my vehicle washed in town. In the last 10 years, my well has produced less and less water. It becomes completely dry in the spring, summer and fall months. Thus far, water returns for the duration of the winter. The barren months require that I have water delivered. The water comes from the county facility on N.M. 14. Many households depend upon the county for water, even year-round. This is not going to get better. We must conserve our precious water resource, assuring that the water is there for the taxpayers who foot the bill as well as for the area wildlife that drink from windmills in our corridor.

It is incomprehensible to me that any money-making venture has the audacity to request such a handout from the citizens of Santa Fe County, much less that the county would entertain even the ghost of a thought of granting such a request. Must we wait until no water comes out of the tap? I respectfully ask that the Santa Fe County Development and Review Committee acknowledge rights and the wishes of the citizens by denying the strip mine application made by Buena Vista Estates and Rockology LLC. Donna Herring lives in Santa Fe County, where she is careful never to waste water.


Taping Legislature makes sense


t seems to me that it is a nobrainer that the New Mexico Legislature committee and floor hearings be videotaped and archived on a website available to the public. They are public meetings, after all. The legislators are citizens elected to perform a public service. As an educated citizen interested in hearing (and sometimes testifying on) bills related to education, I find myself many times conflicted whether to attend the House Education Committee meeting or that of the Senate Education Committee, since both meet at the same time (Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings). I urge the legislators to allow videotaping and archiving committee hearings and floor sessions. This is not a partisan issue. It is about transparency and allowing citizens to be more informed about the issues. They might even participate in the legislative process more. Lina Germann

Drive-by stops Walking in South Capitol, as I frequently do, I wonder if the police, instead of hiring Robotrucks to catch speeders, might better spend a few dollars spraying “STOP” in DayGlo red — framed in neon — on stop signs. Virtually every day, I see a car blow through the north-tosouth stop sign at the Don Diego and Marquez intersection as if it’s invisible. Almost as bad is the eastto-west stop sign on Old Santa Fe Trail, where Monte Sol cuts in. I personally have had near-misses at both spots, on foot and driving. Seems to be an epidemic. Sooner or later, someone’s going to get killed (it might be me). I’ve reported both danger spots to the police. Maybe they read letters to the editor. Bruce Moss

Thanks to protectors In response to Carol Norris (My View, “Police training: Tone down ‘evil’ rhetoric”), I was privileged to take a concealed carry class taught by Jack Jones. The women in our search and rescue group left our training empowered and safer knowing that Jack Jones was director of the New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy. I see that you are a freelance writer/psychotherapist. I was a trauma nurse. We need our protectors to protect us. We need those who save lives to save us. I guess you can go writing about “dehumanizing hyperboles” and complaining about word choice “alienating” those who you say are only “expressing” themselves through crime. Your blithering view is a great reminder: Thank you to law enforcement who protect us. Thank you to our first responders, search and rescue and emergency departments who work tirelessly with law


Contrasting approach Jack Jones, who heads the New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy, should meet Bill Bratton, New York City’s new police commissioner. In their contrasting approaches to policing, the men might as well be from different planets. In The New Mexican of Feb. 16 (“Officer defends police training”), Jones sees evil invading New Mexico that can only be fought with heavily armed police and more firearms training. Bratton, on the other hand, stresses a police-citizen partnership to maximize security from crime and violence in New York. (Cops can’t do it alone!) Bratton’s citizen partnership has three components: trust-building and mutual cooperation and collaboration. Effectiveness, he says, is measured by how many crimes and violent acts are prevented — not by how many people the police blow away. Isn’t that exactly what we want from Jack Jones and the New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy? After all, he is training officers for New Mexico, not Afghanistan or Iraq. Cathie Sullivan

A pipe dream The Keystone pipeline does little to further U.S. goals of energy independence. Most of the oil will be exported to the highest bidders, which are India and China. All pipelines leak and eventually corrode, depending on what travels through them and the quality of their construction. Alberta Tar Sands sludge is some of the most contaminated and impure type of petroleum on Earth. The safe and reliable disposal of its byproducts and those costs once in the U.S. cannot be underestimated. The pollution and greenhouse gases associated with the

The jobs created are temporary, and the environmental oversight will be left up to cash-strapped agencies in states hostile to environmental protection. Follow the proposed path of this pipeline, and you’ll find nary a state with a commitment to protecting the environment. Tim Bauman

Trashy city Admittedly not living in a zillionaire’s neighborhood, I just came home with two bags of recyclables and one of pure trash from a walk partway around my neighborhood. No place I’ve lived — and I’ve lived all over the country — has more litter, street trash and old dog poop than Santa Fe.

Utilizing resources In seeing Ms. Marguerite Dimas’ letter regarding the non-responsiveness of the Child Protective Services hotline (“Cry for the children,” Feb. 16), I would like to make a suggestion. I am one of the many social workers in this town who spent substantial time working within the CPS system as we began our postgraduate careers. While retired, most of us retain the skills involved in taking a hotline message and communicating information and assessments to the powers that be. Although retirement and the technological age has taken many of us out of the job pool, our minds are still more than capable of evaluating credibility and crisis. Why not ask us to help with this?

Another burden The decision of three members of the Santa Fe Public Schools Board of Education to fund tech improvements by raising property taxes is objectionable. Rather than put the issue to a vote by utilizing a general obligation bond that would require voter approval, these folks decided to impose an additional burden on all property owners to avoid the difficult challenges posed by using a more democratic method. The shallow concept of relying on more computer hardware to raise educational achievements in our district is highly suspect and with little in terms of proven examples of success. My thanks to board members Lorraine Price and Glenn Wikle for not supporting this decision. Craig Campbell

Irrational discrimination It is interesting to reread articles about the now-vetoed law from Arizona substituting “racism” for religious beliefs and religion, and substituting “any group” for gays and lesbians or same-sex couples. This kind of discrimination would not be tolerated against any other group. Imagine if a Catholic florist refused to provide flowers for a Mormon wedding, or if a black baker refused to make a cake for an Asian wedding, or if a Lutheran photographer refused to photograph a Jewish wedding. It is no more rational to allow businesses that serve the public to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation than it is to allow discrimination based on race or religion.

In colonial New Mexico, women made a difference


his month we celebrate Women’s History Month, and last month it was Black History Month. Both have significance in New Mexico, since African Americans and women have played a key role in the historical landscape that is New Mexico today. Indeed, “America’s first feminist,” as I call her, came with the Oñate colonists in 1598. Her full name was Isabela de Olvera. The following statement that she gave in 1598 is the reason I consider her America’s first feminist: “As I am going to New Mexico and have reason to fear that I may be annoyed by some individuals since I am a mulatto, and it is proper to protect my rights in such an eventuality by an affidavit showing that I am a free woman, unmarried and the legitimate daughter of Hernando, a negro, and an Indian, MagOrlando dalena.” Romero The role of blacks Commentary and women of varied ethnic backgrounds has been, even to this day, mostly ignored in our schools and history. Yet it wasn’t just Friar Marcos De Niza who “discovered” New Mexico in 1539. Along with him was Estebanico, or “el Moro.” This was the same Esteban who had earlier survived an odyssey with Cabeza de Vaca worthy of Homer and beyond. Closer to us in time is Melchor Rodriguez, son of Sebastian Rodríguez, Vargas’ African drummer and herald, from one of the original 12 families that established the beautiful village of Las Trampas in the 1700s. Not many U.S. colonial villages or towns can claim that one of their original founders was an African American. And in commemoration of Women’s History Month in New Mexico, we have baptism certificates, marriage records, wills, court judgments, Inquisition records, etc., that document the vital role that Hispanic women played from the 17th to the 19th centuries. Women such as Doña Isabel de Bohórquez, Doña Teresa de Aguilera, Lola Chávez de Armijo, Carlota Gonzáles, Carmen Espinosa, Aurora Lucero-White Lea, Dora Ortiz Vásquez, Cleofas Martínez Jaramillo, Nina OteroWarren, Fabiola Cabeza de Baca, etc., etc., etc., are just a tiny list of some of the outstanding women included in the book Nuestras Mujeres, Hispanas of New Mexico, 1582-1992. (UNM Press, 1992). For readers who love New Mexico history, the following sources regarding women’s history are essential: “The Independent Women of Hispanic New Mexico, 1821-1846” by Janet Lecompete. This amazing essay may be found in New Mexico Women: Intercultural Perspectives, published by The University of New Mexico in 1986. Today, Hispanas’ roles in New Mexico range from nurses, teachers, actors, doctors, professors, lawyers, scientists, poets, playwrights, mayors and, of course, our first woman governor, Susana Martinez. I just can’t imagine the survival of New Mexico without our early greatgrandmothers, grandmothers and mothers. They played such a vital role in our history that without their love, patience, kindness, endurance and vitality, most of us would not be here today. With that in mind, I highly recommend that anyone who can attend a conference on March 6 at New Mexico State University do so. The conference commemorates the 60th anniversary of the filming of Salt of the Earth. The movie made in 1954 is a drama based on the actual strike against the Empire Zinc Mine in New Mexico. It deals with the prejudice against Mexican American workers, and the role of the women strikers is not only inspirational but also a great tribute and contribution to Women’s History Month. A similar commemoration is planned March 11 and March 27 at the Santa Fe Community College campus. As a final note, it is sad that in New Mexico, whose history is so incredibly rich with its multilayers of interaction, that our students are only required to take half a semester of New Mexico history in the ninth grade. It is no wonder that we are so ignorant of our history and cultures. Orlando Romero is a historian and writer.

Santa Fe is not alone with bag ban The West’s oldest newspaper, founded 1849

Robert M. McKinney Owner, 1949-2001 Inez Russell Gomez Editorial Page Editor

Ray Rivera Editor


A changing church, here and in Rome


WASHINGTON nti-plastic-bag policies — either outright bans or taxes — are in effect in nearly 100 U.S. cities. As The New York Times reports, California may soon become the first U.S. state to impose a blanket plastic bag ban. A number of other countries have already taken more dramatic nationwide steps. Bangladesh became the first country to ban polythene bags in 2002. Bags clogging drainage pipes were found to have been one of the main reasons for the devastating 1988 and 1998 floods that left twothirds of the country submerged. In 2008 China began requiring stores to charge for bags. Despite lax enforcement, the rule reduced plastic bag use by 49 percent. The most serious plastic crackdown may be in Rwanda, which became the first African country to take action on plastic bags when it imposed an outright ban in 2008. The laws are harsh: Walking down the street with a plastic bag can result in a $150 fine. Store owners stocking them can spend six to 12 months in

hen Pope Benedict XVI announced that he would become the first pope in 600 years to resign, the world knew it meant change for the Roman Catholic Church. Few could have predicted that the South American bishop selected to become pope would prove both so popular and potentially a game-changer. His famous words — “who am I to judge” — about gay men and women, his emphasis on the need to serve the poor and his determination to involve the people in running their church have infused fresh vigor into the Catholic Church. Whether these changes will reach into substance (married priests, Communion for divorced and remarried Catholics, perhaps?) or remain more a matter of style is still up in the air. Most importantly, the world has to see whether Pope Francis can regain trust after the clergy sexual abuse scandals. He also must clean up cronyism in the Vatican and reconnect the people with the hierarchy with which they disagree — a recent Univision independent poll showed that 54 percent of American Catholics support same-sex marriage, 61 percent believe priests should be allowed to marry, 79 percent support contraception and 76 percent believe abortion should be allowed under some conditions. Church surveys that Pope Francis himself ordered show similar gaps between believers and the bishops. Far from Rome, the Archdiocese of Santa Fe prepares for its own coming changes. Archbishop Michael J. Sheehan, who will reach the mandatory retirement age of 75 in July, is submitting his required letter of resignation. Catholics here will be guided by a new shepherd at some point in the near future — appointments can take months, even years, but the Sheehan era is coming to a close. The archbishop took over at a difficult time for the church in New Mexico: A beloved local son, Archbishop Robert Sanchez, was forced out because of a sexual scandal involving women, the crime of sexual abuse of minors by trusted priests had been exposed, and the archdiocese faced lawsuits that nearly forced it into bankruptcy. Sheehan, over the 20-plus years, gathered the pieces, healing and strengthening the wounded church. His tenure is ending, interestingly, with national attention on the archdiocese because of parish unrest in Albuquerque. The archbishop has decided that the Dominican Brothers, who have cared for believers at the Aquinas Newman Center at The University of New Mexico, will be replaced July 1. The reason given is that Sheehan wants more vocations to come from a university parish, and to ensure that, he is placing diocesan priests there instead. The congregation — more than 500 students and some 750 families — has been in an uproar since the January announcement. As with most decisions in the Catholic Church, the people in the pews were not asked their views. Their dissent has been mostly ignored, as is common after church decisions. The old way, that the bishop knows best, remains in place. Yet the message of Pope Francis is different. Through his survey, through his statements and through his actions, the still-new pope is promising a church that no longer is governed from the top down. People still could be disappointed in what seems to be a shift in church governing policy. After all, promises are not action. Especially in the American church, though, there is a sense that a more participatory faith community is forming. This week, Catholics join much of the Christian world to prepare for Easter with Lent, that time of sacrifice, prayer and preparation, starting with Ash Wednesday. One reflection, perhaps, will be on the changing church and what the new pope’s outreach will mean to the faithful. In Santa Fe, that change very soon will become concrete. The top cleric in Santa Fe will be one of Pope Francis’ choices — and he made it clear earlier this month that he is looking for pastors for his people. Bishops, the pope has said, should be “guardians of doctrine, not to measure how far the world lives from the truth it contains, but to fascinate the world, to enchant the world with the beauty of love, to seduce it with the free gift of the Gospel.” Those gifts must be shared by the priests, the men who do the difficult work of preaching the gospel, tending to people’s sorrows and leading congregations. Last week, Santa Fe lost a priest who exemplified all that Pope Francis is asking his clerics to embody. The Rev. Guadalupe Rivera spent his career in Northern New Mexico, serving from Sapello to Nambé and from El Rito to Peñasco. At Our Lady of Guadalupe in Pojoaque, Rivera helped bring about the construction of the new church, rectory and youth centers. He came to Santa Fe in 1972 as pastor of St. Anne Parish, staying there 20 years until his retirement in 1992. He spent his life of service to the people, guiding both young and old, a humble and inspiring presence on this Earth. A pastor, just as Pope Francis wants. From pope to bishop, from Rome to Santa Fe, from priests to the people in the pews, it is a time of change and renewal for the Catholic Church.

Rwanda became the first African country to take action on plastic bags when it imposed an outright ban in 2008. prison. Putting aside human rights concerns about Paul Kagame’s increasingly dictatorial government, such policies have earned the country — in particular the capital, Kigali — a reputation as one of Africa’s cleanest. The law has also spurred the creation of one of the world’s most prosaic black markets: the thriving underground trade in plastic bags, complete with crime syndicates delivering smuggled polythene to merchants. When you outlaw plastic bags, only outlaws will have plastic bags. Rwanda’s draconian measures aside,

I’m generally in favor of policies to reduce plastic bag usage. They’re hazardous to manufacture, take hundreds of years to decompose, are a nuisance for farms and a blight on cities, and extremely harmful to animals when ingested. In tropical countries, they can be breeding grounds for malarial mosquitoes. Light bag taxes — like the 5-cent fee charged in Washington — seem to me like one of the more successful examples of the kind of “nudge” policies favored by Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein. The deterrent is less the money than the fact that you actually have to make a conscious decision to take a bag. If you find yourself without a bag and need an item that won’t fit in your pockets and you don’t feel like carrying, 5 cents isn’t going to break the bank. But in many other cases — a single toothbrush from CVS, for instance — having to affirmatively ask for a bag will probably make you less likely to take one.

Split Ukraine a complicated proposition


n the violence and chaos of the past week, the question has been raised whether stability might be served by dividing Ukraine, Czechoslovakia-style, into a Ukrainian-speaking northwest and a Russian-speaking southeast? It’s not that simple. While Ukraine does have linguistic, cultural and religious divisions, the dividing lines are far from clear. Yes, there are western provinces that were once under Hapsburg rule where Ukrainian nationalism runs strong, and Russians in Crimea who are not reconciled to being part of Ukraine and are now demonstrating against the changes in Kiev. But in the rest of the country of 46 million people languages, ethnic identities and loyalties are mixed and muddled. Ukrainian and Russian are related languages, and the populations have mixed over centuries through intermarriage. In that respect, President Vladimir Putin of Russia is right in describing Ukrainians as kin; where he is wrong is in presuming that even the 30 percent of Ukrainians who list Russian as their mother tongue want to rejoin his Russian Federation. On my last extended visit to Kiev in May 2010, I met with a group of Russian-speaking journalists (two-thirds of Ukraine’s newspapers are in Russian), and none of them yearned to go

back under Moscow rule. “Our hope is to make Ukraine into what Russia should have become, a liberal, tolerant democracy,” one journalist told me. That idea seems to hold sway among many younger, educated Russian-speaking Ukrainians, many of whom supported the protest movement to oust President Viktor Yanukovych. “Dividing Ukraine is a nonstarter because there is no sharp division, no sharp demand for separation,” explained Keith Darden, a professor at the American University School of International Service who studies national loyalties and state-building in Eurasia. The trouble is that the uprising in Independence Square drew a disproportionate number of demonstrators from the western provinces with the strongest tradition of nationalism. Among the identified victims, Darden noted, 50 percent were from those regions, and the nationalists now believe they have a claim on power. That has raised fears among Russianspeakers in the east and south that Ukrainian nationalists will dominate the next government, a fear fanned by the Parliament’s quick vote after Yanukovych fled to overturn a 2012 law that gave Russian (or any other language) the status of an official language in cities or regions

where 10 percent or more spoke it. Russia has also fueled fears by repeatedly portraying the opposition as extremists and now by holding military exercises near the Ukrainian border. “The problem here is what actually started as a kind of pro-European, prodemocratic set of demonstrations is very quickly becoming ethnicized,” said Charles King, an expert on post-Soviet politics at Georgetown University. “This is a problem for Ukraine, for Europe, for Russia, for the United States.” And this is a challenge the interim government now being formed must address quickly, first by ensuring that the it represents all parts of the Ukrainian population; second by confirming the territorial unity of Ukraine; and third by getting state institutions functioning again. “Ethnic conflicts thrive on moments when the state seems weak,” said King, noting that vigilantes with clubs are standing guard at some government buildings in Kiev. The new government would do well to remember that the uprising began as an outcry against rampant corruption and a longing to move closer to European values and institutions — not as a call to impose one vision of Ukraine on all its disparate citizens. Serge Schmemann wrote this for The New York Times.


Surprise: Colorado Senate seat up in the air


hings were going so well for Democratic Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado. Sure, he sits in a swing state, and recent polls show that he is hurting from the national troubles of the rocky health care rollout. But Republicans — stop me if you’ve heard this one — couldn’t seem to get their act together for this year’s midterm election. The GOP looked ready to nominate District Attorney Ken Buck, the same Ken Buck who lost what looked like a lay-up race against freshman Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet in 2010. Then, in a turn of events that would

Editorial page editor: Inez Russell Gomez, 986-3053,, Twitter @inezrussell

make the House of Cards writers blush, this past week Rep. Cory Gardner, a rising Republican star who had previously spurned a challenge to Udall, decided to run. Buck quickly dropped out of the race to run for Gardner’s now-open 4th Congressional District seat. State Rep. Amy Stephens also abandoned her Senate candidacy, calling Gardner “the great uniter.” And voila! Within 48 hours, Udall went from being a safe incumbent to being one of the half-dozen or so most endangered senators on the ballot this fall. Udall has plenty of strengths, with or without Gardner in the race. Chief among them is the $5 million in his cam-

paign account. And while Gardner is a significant improvement from the D-list candidates Republicans had earlier, he is still a member of a decidedly unpopular congressional GOP. A week ago, Udall was plotting committee assignments in the 114th Congress. Today he is bracing for a real fight for a second term. Mark Udall, for watching your opponent turn from a frog to a prince, you had the worst week in Washington. Congrats, or something.

ound puppies and shelter kittens are familiar sights — every year, more than 135,000 dogs and cats enter our state’s animal sheltering facilities. Most people know the benefits that robust animal shelters have for the quality of life, not just for the animals but also for public safety, population management and disease control in our communities, plus the enrichment of daily life that adopted animals bring. Until recently, a key component of New Mexico’s humane network has been overlooked. The state’s licensed equine rescue shelters (find the full list at php?id=23) work 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure care and rehabilitation for horses, donkeys and mules. Located in many rural communities across the state, these facilities take in horses relinquished by owners or collected by law enforcement whenever possible. Our state’s horse shelters are champions of a second chance for innocent animals who would otherwise suffer from inadequate care or would be sold at the livestock auction with a likely destination of a foreign slaughterhouse. Nonetheless, these are trying times for our state’s equine rescue shelters. Faced with the same conditions that have forced many families to give up horses — including a struggling economy, drought, rising hay prices and overbreeding — the rescues often struggle to care for their existing animals. Unlike most city and county animal shelters, the New Mexico equine rescues receive no public funding. The facilities are privately supported and rely heavily on volunteers. Beginning this year, New Mexicans have an easy and effective way to help horses and the licensed shelters that care for them.

Shame on Arizona, but a boycott hurts all rizona just faced a civil-rights quagmire that should serve as a reminder of how far this country has, or perhaps hasn’t, come. The now-vetoed House Bill 2153/Senate Bill 1062 would have allowed businesses in the state of Arizona to openly and legally discriminate against anyone who identifies — or is presumed to identify — as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, or identifying as questioning their gender or sexual preference. Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed it, thankfully, but not before much hand-wringing over this discriminatory bill disguised as religious freedom. What’s more, such bills are being considered in other states around the country. From New Mexico — a state that, thanks to a levelheaded, unanimous state Supreme Court ruling, has finally seen fit to offer my partner of 22 years and me the same rights afforded everyone else — I have to weigh in on the misguided notion that boycotting the state of Arizona would have been a proper response to this legislation. A push to boycott Arizona echoed throughout the gay community, spurred greatly by social-media giants such as George Takei of Star Trek fame. It’s wrong. Here’s what I wrote to him: Dear George Takei: I respect you for so many reasons, and look up to you and Brad (your husband) as beacons of hope in a homophobic world gone crazy. As a gay, legally married man in New Mexico (my husband and I have been together for 22 years), it might seem odd for me to say that we must agree to disagree on how to respond to what is happening in Arizona. Knee-jerk reactions abound, the most prolific of which is to boycott the state entirely, in the hopes that a hit to the pocketbook will dramatically change the tone of conversation in Arizona state government. In my opinion, it won’t. Unfortunately, polarizing social issues rule the day in American politics, and Arizona is indeed ground zero for such things. But that reality provides no reason why the beliefs of a few bigots in office and their citizen cronies should result in damaging the livelihoods of so many hardworking LGBTI people who live in Arizona or other states that pass bad laws. Look: I understand the motivation — fiscal threats raise the bar within any debate of this magnitude, and it garners attention that signholders and rainbow flags simply can’t muster. I have absolutely no vested financial interests in the state of Arizona, but I do have a strong interest in making sure gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and queer/questioning folks who find themselves in the unenviable position of living in the midst of this nightmare can count on their brothers and sisters outside the state to stand with them. On that note, I would ask that an addendum be made to any boycott solution in the future: If you can spare money, time, or words of encouragement, funnel them to Arizona’s (or any other misguided state) LGBTQI community, especially to the youth and the elderly, who have little recourse when it comes to the rule of law. Please don’t forget the ones who deserve the most love and attention while blinded by deserved anger and frustration. Don’t punish the state. Punish the state of mind.

charitable program, the Horse Shelter Rescue Fund. Taxpayers can contribute a portion of their income tax refund to helping the state’s equine rescues licensed by the New Mexico Livestock Board. The program is based on a similar effort in Colorado. Launched in 2010, Colorado’s Unwanted Horse Alliance program has raised tens of thousands of dollars annually for equine rescues. With this model in mind, the rescue organizations worked alongside Sen. George Muñoz, D-Gallup, in bringing the bill for the program’s creation during the 2013 legislative session. The Horse Shelter, the Santa Fe-area licensed horse rescue, is one of the organizations that will be benefit from the Horse Shelter Rescue Fund. The Horse Shelter, currently housing 78 animals at its Cerrillos facility and in foster homes, occupies a special role in the community, taking in animals seized by and relinquished to law enforcement in animal cruelty investigations. These survivors of neglect and abuse receive veterinary care, feed to regain weight and rehabilitative training with the goal of adoption into permanent homes. See photos and stories at Many other rescues across the state do similarly vital work. In 2012, the Horse Shelter joined with several of the organizations to form the New Mexico Equine Rescue Alliance and formalize our long-standing commitment to the well-being of all equines in New Mexico. Now, with the launch of the Horse Shelter Rescue Fund, the Alliance hopes to further engage with people all across the state in equine welfare efforts. This tax season, please consider a donation to this new and creative initiative for our horses, donkeys and mules. Jennifer Rios is the president of The Horse Shelter of Cerrillos.

‘Once-in-a-lifetime’ Goya show


he breathtaking new show at the New Mexico Museum of Art, Renaissance to Goya, offers a rarely seen gathering of original prints and drawings by Spanish Old Masters. The art of Old Spain is among the rarest in museum collections outside of Spain, and our museum was chosen as the only venue in the United States. It is on view until March 9. This is an exquisite and welcoming exhibition, beautifully displayed, unusually intimate and rich, where you can amble and look and take your time with works hundreds of years old. All of the art is safely framed behind glass, inviting a much closer look than the more common exhibition of paintings. The sparkling array of Francisco de Goya’s prints and drawings offer profound social and political commentary on the life and times of one of the world’s greatest artists. Many of the copper-plate engravings and drawings by the assembled artists have religious subjects which embody the Catholic heart of Spain. Drawings of diverse subjects by little known Spanish artists of high qual-

ity are introduced here to most of us for the first time. I came away feeling a gallery of the British Museum or the Prado had arrived like magic in Santa Fe, offering a once-in-alifetime experience. A beautifully illustrated Fred book by British Curator R. Kline and connoisseur Mark P. McDonald comes with the exhibition, adding exceptional scholarship to our experience as well as insight into the wider world of art history and guidance to the intelligent appreciation of art being made today. This is a show you will want to see more than once. Muchas gracias and kudos to museum director Mary Kershaw, who decided this treasure of art was perfect for Santa Fe and, with a monumental effort, she made it happen. How lucky we are. Fred R. Kline is a writer and artist, generalist art historian and private art dealer, active in the Santa Fe art scene since 1980.

am writing this statement to express my sincere concern in relation to the recent events leading up to the potential closure of two elementary schools within the Moriarty-Edgewood School District. One closure had been proposed at the Mountain View Elementary School in the incorporated area of Moriarty and one in the incorporated area of the town of Edgewood. Last week, the Public Education Department denied the district’s request to close the schools. We face a new challenge. I write my comments as a parent, a citizen, an aspiring educator (substitute teacher, student teacher and recently completed alternative licensure program in secondary education at Central New Mexico Community College), and as an elected Santa Fe County commissioner. The East Mountains and Estancia Basin have been challenged with a declining population and a reduction of enrollment across the board in the Moriarty-Edgewood School District for many years. There are new charter and private schools in the region and some families choose to home school their children, which is a given right. Additionally, the entire United States has been fighting the toughest economic depression in our modern history. These and other factors have resulted in challenges across the board, with no exceptions, for any public or private entity in our region. I do not have the time or the energy to point fingers or place blame. I do, however, fully understand that the education of our children is imperative to the success of our collective community. I am hopeful that we will all set aside our individual priorities and vision

and collectively work through and resolve these challenges together. I respectfully suggest that we all think in a regional manner. We all benefit and prosper with a healthy and strong educational system. We need to be a team, no exceptions, no one left out: the town of Edgewood, city of Moriarty, Moriarty-Edgewood School District, Bernalillo County, Torrance County, state Public Education Department, state legislators, Soil and Water Conservation District members, religious leaders and churches, teachers, businesses and professionals, citizens and neighbors, No one entity, group or individual is responsible. We are all responsible. Our children our watching. What will we do? My children both attended school in Edgewood and Moriarty. I am proud to say my daughter Raylin has completed school and is a proud graduate of Moriarty High School and the Moriarty-Edgewood School District, and is now studying at The University of New Mexico, aspiring to be a teacher. Jolin is still at Moriarty High School among many proud and strong Pintos working toward graduation. I sincerely thank everyone who helped my children and others succeed and graduate. After we work to resolve our immediate challenge, I suggest we then turn to higher education and collectively build a strategy and bring an institution of higher education to our community and region. A community and region that continues to educate our children, builds a system of higher education and invites the business community to set up shop and hire our children is a community and a region that will long prosper.

At SFCC, student success is in the numbers In my short time on S the SFCC board, I anta Fe Community College was one of 26 colleges invited by the Lumina Foundation to join the Achieving the Dream Initiative in fall of 2004. The five-year grant allowed SFCC to examine its processes and curricula and improve student success at the course, program, certificate and degree levels. It took most of the 26 colleges several years to begin seeing graduation results. SFCC began to see rising graduation numbers in 2006 and that increase continues today. The number of students crossing the stage has climbed steadily upward since 2006, when 292 graduated. By 2012, 733 graduated with certificates or degrees. These improvements in graduation numbers are a credit to those SFCC faculty members, who go well beyond their basic obligation as instructors. The extra commitment of faculty who take time to help and advise students, and the dedication of our staff who serve our students with support programs and services are a big reason why we are seeing more

students achieve degrees. SFCC’s graduation rate reported by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics is 10 percent for 2012, the same year its graduation numbers rose by 43 percent. This difference can be explained: The 10 percent figure is not determined by the total number earning a degree or certificate, but by how many of the graduates are first-time, fulltime degree-seekers who complete within three years. Part-time SFCC students are not counted because they may take four years or more to gain a credential. It is not unusual for part-time students to take six to 10 years to complete. This occurs at most community colleges. Since 2006, SFCC has added programs to assist students whose parents may never have gone to college and who need help in navigating a college environment. This is a strategy that has enabled many more students to graduate. Another reason for the increase in graduates is the addition over the past several years of certificate programs, which students

have been impressed with SFCC’s focus on student performance. can complete while working on a degree. Often, a certificate credential alone allows upward career mobility. For example, a student who completes a CNA (nursing assistant) certificate in one year can rapidly gain employment even as he continues his associate degree program in nursing or psychology. Also, students can be so encouraged by completing a certificate, they stay in school and earn an associate, bachelor’s or eventually even a master’s degree or doctorate. Still others attend SFCC to attain knowledge that is of interest to them and that they have been unable to study earlier.

I work in community college leadership throughout the country. In my short time on the SFCC board, I have been impressed with SFCC’s focus on student performance. We are fortunate to have the kind of high-quality faculty and staff who try new ideas, emphasize best practices and put a lot of heart into classroom teaching. With this kind of commitment, it is no wonder the college’s graduation numbers continue to rise. Repeatedly, community leaders and community members tell me what a treasure Santa Fe Community College is to our region. They tell me that over the years, SFCC has grown and made great strides to meet their needs and those of their friends and neighbors. My role on the board will continue to support the excellent work of our faculty, staff, administrators and students. Dr. Martha Romero is an Achieving the Dream Leadership coach and member of the Santa Fe Community College Governing Board.

Community college reflects best of unique Santa Fe


have served as an adjunct and/or full-time professor at Santa Fe Community College since its founding 30 years ago. I received my Ph.D. at The University of New Mexico in Intercultural Communication, and the focus of my dissertation and subsequent book, Santa Fe Hispanic Culture: Preserving Identity in a Tourist Town, was the examination of the cultural dynamics in the city of Santa Fe. I believe that in many ways Santa Fe has a unique story that is worth telling, and SFCC reflects a part of this history. It would be naïve and misleading to assert that Santa Fe has not had its share of intercultural struggles and tensions since its founding in 1610. The Spanish occupation and subsequent Pueblo Revolt in 1680 as well as the American occupation in 1846 are examples of nationalistic and cultural clashes that involved warfare and battles for resources. In recent years, ethnic and cultural relations have from time to time become strained over issues such as land grants, gentrification and economics. However, one of Santa Fe’s enduring characteristics as been its people’s desire and ability to overcome differences and create an environment that is inclusive and that takes the best from each culture to create a “City Different.” It is this elegant mix-

ing of cultures that makes Santa Fe one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Our city has a unique culture that is unlike anywhere else. Perhaps it has to do with the history of the city, the rich Pueblo culture that is ancient and omnipotent, the development of a unique Spanish culture far removed from outside influences, the creative influence of American writers and artists, and the myriad of other cultures that for the most part have been received with open arms by this tolerant thinking city. I believe that people living in Santa Fe have a culture that supersedes ethnicity and race. I would argue that a child growing up in Santa Fe has more in common with his fellow classmates despite differences in background than with members of his own ethnicity or race from other parts of the country. Being a Santa Fean is more

powerful than being a member of a specific group. This is the attitude that I have observed at Santa Fe Community College over the past three decades. Students, faculty, staff and administration have reflected this spirit in an admirable way. When you walk down the halls of SFCC the atmosphere is supportive and positive. I suspect that those who have spent time either taking classes or working at the college would concur. We who support the educational mission of SFCC see our students as fellow Santa Feans who we wish to encourage in the fulfillment of their dreams and goals. We see beyond differences of ethnicity, culture, age, gender, sexual orientation and disability in embracing our fellow Santa Feans.

When it comes to health, people can make the difference


e appreciated the Jan. 24 Health Matters column, “Inequity is bad for your health,” by La Familia Medical Center’s Dr. Wendy Johnson. She discusses an important issue that Con Alma Health Foundation’s visionary founders understood: We must address root causes of social problems to create healthier communities where people are safe to be active in their neighborhoods and have access to healthy foods. We are excited to see programs like La Familia’s REACH program, which aims to overcome barriers to healthy lifestyles through a pilot promotora certification program in collaboration with the Santa Fe Community College. We can’t change people’s ZIP code or the color of their skin — the two biggest factors that contribute to a community’s health. But we can work together to make changes so it’s easier for people to lead healthy lives. We can donate produce from our gardens to The Food Depot, which distributes food to pantry programs that serve people in need. We can pick up trash along our community trails or participate in a river cleanup day. We can support our community leaders’ efforts to improve parks and trails. Con Alma’s most recent initiative, Healthy People-Healthy Places, is working on these kinds of issues so it is easier for people to choose healthy foods and be active in their communities, particularly in rural, underserved

New Mexicans have a lot of strengths that make change possible. areas that don’t have as many resources as cities. Through the initiative we have awarded several grants throughout New Mexico to support nonprofits that are trying to achieve health equity in which everyone has an equal chance at being healthy. One such nonprofit, Chainbreaker Collective of Santa Fe, is addressing transportation issues in Santa Fe so working people have an alternative to driving, thus saving money and helping the environment. This work also helps people be physically active in their community. New Mexicans have a lot of strengths that make change possible. Chainbreaker Collective is an example of the many incredible New Mexico organizations that support New Mexicans’ values of family, community, respect and environment. People are our great asset in New Mexico, too. To find out more about our Healthy PeopleHealthy Places initiative, visit our website at or call me at 438-0776, ext. 3. Dolores E.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: March 2, 1914: A Berlin woman has invented a powder that will put soldiers to sleep on the battlefield, in lieu of killing them, giving the fighting sides an opportunity to capture the brave men and make them prisoners. German officials have taken the matter up and will give the new invention a severe test as to its worth for what it is recommended. At any rate a test might prove to save the lives of soldiers who otherwise would be killed. — Cimarron News. March 2, 1964: Española — Biggest single cause of foot trouble among youngsters isn’t shoes — it’s socks. And usually problems develop because the things are outgrown. That’s the report from the home agent at large for Taos and Rio Arriba County, who did a little research on the subject following an accident involving her daughter. She discovered through research that most foot trouble can be prevented with properly fitting shoes and socks. Socks first. March 2, 1989: Senate President Pro Tem Manny Aragon said Tuesday he wants to cut $113,000 from the Penitentiary of New Mexico budget because he was insulted by an associate warden. Aragon, an Albuquerque Democrat, sponsored an amendment to the budget proposal for the 1989-90 fiscal year that eliminates the money for two of three associate warden positions at the threeprison complex south of Santa Fe. The Penitentiary of New Mexico has a warden, two deputy wardens and three associate wardens — one for each of the prisons in the complex.

“Patti Bushee is for the worker. In the infancy of the state employee unionism, I became a union activist who dedicated my life to worker's rights and welfare. This includes supporting them, holding political candidates accountable to worker's rights. After 20 years of public service, I can unequivocably endorse Patti as a worker's advocate. Time and time again I have approached Patti about workplace grievances and she has always come to the aid of the worker. This is a pivotal election. We need someone in the Mayor's seat who will solicit input from rank-and-file workers and advocate for their best interests.”

“ Councilor Bushee genuinely

cares about the citizens of Santa Fe and the IAFF Local #2059 has the strong belief that if elected as the Mayor of the City of Santa Fe she will continue to put the needs of the citizens above all else.

No suspects arrested in connection with stolen rent checks, money orders By Chris Quintana The New Mexican

The Santa Fe Police Department has not arrested anyone in connection to several thefts of rent checks and money orders in late January. But Celina Westervelt, department spokeswoman, said the department will amp up its patrols around apartment complexes with the hope of preventing more thefts or capturing the suspects. According to police reports, thieves hit multiple complexes between Jan. 30 and Feb. 6, including the Bluffs at Tierra Contenta, 6600 Jaguar Drive; the Tuscany at Saint Francis Apartments, 2218 Miguel Chavez Road; the San Miguel Court Apartments, 2029 Calle Lorca; Villa Alegre Apartments, 233 Villa Alegre St.; Santa Fe Apartments, 255 Camino Alire; and the Paseo del Sol Apartments, 4551 Paseo del Sol. Previous reports indicated that the thieves targeted money orders because they’re easier to forge and cash. Police reports also revealed that the thieves may have used sticks tipped with glue to fish out checks or money orders from the mailboxes. Joe Corda, the owner of four mobile home parks in the Santa Fe area, said his property Casitas de Santa Fe mobile home park, 525 Airport Road, was robbed of checks and money orders about six months ago. He said he lost close to $10,000, and decided that wouldn’t happen again. So he moved the rent drop boxes from a remote location The La Castañda Hotel in Las Vegas, N.M., is considered the ‘Queen of Las Vegas.’ Arizona-based entrepreneur Allan Affeldt plans to buy the vacant hotel as well as the Plaza Hotel.

Entrepreneur predicts revamp plans will usher in economic, cultural revival In an interview with The New Mexican last week, Affeldt said he is “guardedly optimistic … It’s a slightly scary prospect, but I think it will be a lot of fun.” The list price for the 25,000-square-foot La Castañeda is $450,000, according to both Affeldt and Realtor DeAnne Ottoway of Sotheby’s International Realty, who is representing owner Marie Elhd. Affeldt estimates he will have to invest at least $3.5 million to restore the hotel and its restaurant/bar. He said the hotel would have about 20 rooms. The Plaza — which has about 70 rooms — is now in the hands of Valley National Bank in Española, which holds an outstanding note of $3.7 million on the property. The New Mexico Finance Authority is a participant in that loan and thus needs to agree to the sale.

During its Thursday meeting, the Finance Authority board directed its staff to determine a fair market price for the Plaza. But Robert Coalter, the authority’s chief executive officer, said this is just a first step and that it’s too early to comment further on the process. The board could schedule a formal vote on the action in a future meeting, he said. In Affeldt’s view, Las Vegas has “the prettiest downtown in the Southwest,” one awaiting rediscovery. He said the town of roughly 14,000 residents and three colleges has “so much going for it, but people just drive right by it.” He believes the two hotels can serve as historical attractions to travelers driving along Interstate 25. He said he would likely

Martinez appoints DA for eastern counties

State GOP votes on primary candidates

Film documents rise of Rwandan bicycle team

ALBUQUERQUE — New Mexico Republican leaders have put more than one candidate on the primary election ballot in two contested races. More than 500 delegates voted Saturday afternoon for candidates in several federal and state races at the Republican Party of New Mexico’s pre-primary convention. Former state GOP Chairman Allen Weh of Albuquerque and David Clements, a Las Cruces attorney, got more than the necessary 20 percent of delegates’ votes for the U.S. Senate race. Weh, who earned 53.2 percent over Clements’ 46.8 percent, will get the top listing on the ballot. Michael Frese, a Corrales business owner, outpaced retired Army officer Richard Priem of Albuquerque, 64.4 to 36.5 percent, in the race for the U.S. District 1

Orphans of the Rwandan genocide banded together with the help of cycling great Jacques Boyer to create a national cycling team. A feature-length documentary about their lives and efforts, Rising from the Ashes, will premiere in Los Alamos on March 12 at the Reel Deal Movie Theater. The 7 p.m. event is co-sponsored by the Tuff Riders Mountain Bike Club and the Los Alamos Singletrack Association. Team Rwanda became much more than a cycling organization, say the documentary filmmakers. Many of the riders could not read or write, lived in homes without water and electricity, were malnourished and had never received healthcare. In the team, they found support and a sport.

Gov. Susana Martinez has appointed a new top state prosecutor for two eastern New Mexico counties. Martinez announced Friday that Andrea Reeb of Clovis will be the district attorney for the Ninth Judicial District. Martinez says Reeb has more than 17 years of prosecuting experience. Reeb, who previously served as chief deputy district attorney, takes over for former District Attorney Matthew Chandler. Chandler’s last day was Saturday, and he is leaving to go into private practice. However, Chandler previously said he would continue to handle the case in which a Roswell middle school student faces juvenile charges in a shooting that wounded two other students. The district attorney in Roswell stepped down due to conflicts of interest. The 9th Judicial District includes Curry and Roosevelt counties.

rizona-based entrepreneur Allan Affeldt predicts that his plan to purchase two historic hotels in Las Vegas, N.M., will lead to an economic and cultural revival there. On Thursday, Affledt and his artist wife, Tina Mion, received preliminary support from the New Mexico Finance Authority for buying and restoring the Plaza Hotel, which dates to the early 1880s, and the La Castañeda, which opened in 1899 and is currently vacant. The couple restored La Posada Hotel in Winslow, Ariz., which like La Castañeda was built as a Harvey House to accommodate travelers on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway, for a reported $12 million.

Lawsuit keeps Martinez’s pick for Highlands regent in limbo By Milan Simonich The New Mexican

The man that Gov. Susana Martinez recently selected to serve on the governing board of New Mexico Highlands University is in limbo and may never take office. Carl G. Foster had an active lawsuit for breach of contract against Highlands University when Martinez nominated him on Jan. 30 to be one of the school’s five regents. Foster, formerly an adjunct professor at a Highlands branch campus, had sued an academic dean, a university vice president and the board of regents that he hoped to join. With Foster in court as a adversary to the university he was supposed to help lead, he became one of Martinez’s most controversial nominees. He reversed course on his lawsuit soon after his nomination as a regent became contentious. Foster asked a judge to dismiss his case against Highlands on Feb. 13, when a week remained in the legislative session. The judge complied, but Foster’s nomination was not heard by the Senate Rules Committee. By then, the committee chairwoman, Democratic Sen. Linda Lopez of Albuquerque, had called Foster’s nomination “unacceptable” and “ludicrous.” Lopez, one of five Democrats running for governor, challenged Martinez’s logic in appointing someone to a university governing board who was suing that very body. Martinez stuck with Foster’s nomination, but that was not enough to put him in power at Highlands. Unlike the governor’s Cabinet secretaries, who take office even before they are confirmed by the Senate, nominees for university regents can remain sidelined. That is what has happened to Foster. Because he has not been confirmed by the Senate, the five sitting regents at Highlands remain in office.

one of the most-seen pieces of sculpture in the world during the mourning for the pontiff, Singleton opted to keep a low profile, and declined to be interviewed by The New Mexican. “He’s had several opportunities from all over the country to give interviews for different articles, but he has chosen not to talk to anyone — primarily because he does not feel it’s appropriate at this time with the pope lying in repose,” said Fenton Moore, owner director of Galerie Züger in Santa Fe, where much of Singleton’s work had been on display.

Singleton’s work includes both religious and secular subjects. His works are included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City and the Vatican Museum. Another of his crosses rests with the Shroud of Turin, which some believe was the burial shroud of Jesus Christ. Among his nonreligious subjects, Singleton has sculpted Old West images of cowboys and Indians, the Pony Express and one inspired by the film Easy Rider.

“He does it all: musicians, cowboys, religious pieces,” Moore said in the 2005 interview. Near the end of his life, Singleton said there were two things he hoped people would remember him for, Goekler wrote in an email to The New Mexican. First was bringing the term “emotional realism” into the art world. He believed the feelings a piece of art evokes are just as real as the piece itself or the museum in which it hangs, and that the ability to evoke powerful feelings is the mark of great art. “What matters about art isn’t how it looks,” Singelton said, according to Goekler. “It’s how it makes us feel. That it makes us feel. That it gets our attention and draws us in and opens us up. And in a world where so much of the stuff going on around us just hurts and makes us numb, that’s a damn good thing.” Second was helping to bring spiritual art into the mainstream in America. “People need security in the metaphysical world even more than in the physical world,” Singleton said. “There are a lot of things that make no ‘objective’ sense if we try to analyze them. Yet they do make sense — a great deal of sense — if we approach them with our hearts instead of our heads. That’s how I try to work.” A July 2000, obituary in The New Mexican stated that Singleton had a daughter who died at age 25, and at that time the artist was married. No information about his family, or funeral arrangements was available Saturday as Goekler could not be reached for additional details.

New law protects service members’ parental rights ALBUQUERQUE — New Mexico parents who also serve in the armed forces won’t have to worry about child custody disputes while away on deployment. Gov. Susana Martinez signed into law Saturday legislation that will ensure childcustody arrangements cannot be modified in any way if one parent is currently deployed.

Martinez signed Senate Bill 130, the Service Member Child Custody Act, during a ceremony. Martinez says the new law means service members can focus on fighting the enemy abroad instead of thinking about custody battles back home.

ALBUQUERQUE — New Mexico has brokered an agreement between the federal government and a staterun college that has the potential to open hundreds of thousands of acres in the San Juan Basin to oil and gas drilling and result in royalties for thousands of Navajo landowners. Gov. Susana Martinez announced the partnership between the state, San Juan College and the Bureau of Indian Affairs’ Federal Indian Minerals Office during a visit to Farmington on Thursday. Under the agreement, the college will provide technical assistance in processing nearly 300 leases negotiated between Navajo landowners and developers that have been stuck at the Federal Indian Minerals Office. Officials estimate the first of these leases could be approved in a matter of weeks. Martinez’s administration is hopeful the agreement, the first of its kind in the nation, could help other western states where federal budget cuts and staffing challenges have resulted in a bottleneck when it comes to approving lease agreements between individual American Indian landowners and developers. Some landowners have waited months, while others

say it has taken them years to wade through the process, costing them hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost royalties. “This is a major breakthrough that will create jobs and improve the lives and well-being of the landowners,” Martinez said. Allotments in the Four Corners region have increased in value over the last two years thanks to advancements in technology that are encouraging oil and gas developers to tap the area’s shale deposits. New Mexico officials say more drilling in the region is likely to lead to more jobs, consumer spending and tax revenues that would bolster the state’s coffers. Dan Fine with the state Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department said New Mexico is not the only state where the government has been struggling to process lease agreements for allottees. He pointed to Oklahoma and North Dakota, which is in the midst of an oil boom. Allotments are not held by tribal governments but have been given to individual tribal members by the federal government. Today, most allottees are second- or third-generation owners who inherited the land from their parents or grandparents.

Hotels: Nonprofit says ‘economic impact to Las Vegas could be huge’ Continued from Page C-1 hire about 80 employees between the two properties. He would keep the Plaza open as he restores it, he said, but La Castañeda would probably take at least two years of restoration and construction work before it would open. Cindy Collins, executive director of Mainstreet de Las Vegas — a nonprofit focusing on economic development with an emphasis on historic preservation — said via email that if Affeldt succeeds, “the economic impact to Las Vegas could be huge.” The two hotels could serve as “destination points for visitors to discover the incredible historic resources of Las Vegas,” she said. More than 900 buildings in the city are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Business owner Michael Siewert, who runs ThreadBear, a fabric shop on the Plaza in Las Vegas, said the city is rich in architectural, cultural and historic resources but lacks a focal

point to draw tourists. He calls La Castañeda “the Queen of Las Vegas.” A 2006 University of New Mexico Bureau of Business and Economic Research report notes that Las Vegas’ Wal-Mart is a major generator of gross receipts tax revenue in the city and that hotels and motels “bring less than one-half million dollars to Las Vegas on a net basis, a surprisingly small contribution given the town’s location along I-25.” Though Amtrak’s Southwest Chief still stops in Las Vegas twice a day, Affeldt said his plan does not depend on an influx of train travelers, particularly since the fate of the Southwest Chief route through Northern New Mexico remains uncertain. Affeldt said that although the Chief stops right outside his La Posada Hotel in Winslow, about 95 percent of that hotel’s visitors come by car. Las Vegas was founded in the 1830s, but it really came to life with the arrival of the railroad around 1880.

The Santa Fe Railway built La Castañeda in the late 1890s and contracted with Fred Harvey — of Harvey Girls fame — to operate it, providing hospitality to both railroad employees and tourists. According to Stephen Fried, author of Appetite For America: Fred Harvey and the Business of Civilizing the Wild West One Meal at a Time, La Castañeda originally served as one of three anchor hotels — along with El Alvarado in Albuquerque (which opened in 1902) and El Tovar on the rim of the Grand Canyon (1905) designed by the railroad to attract and promote tourism in the Southwest during the heyday of train travel. The El Tovar is still in operation but the railroad demolished the Alvarado in 1970. “The railroad was staking the claim that Northern New Mexico and Northern Arizona were beautiful places to see, and the Castañeda was the beginning of that,” Fried said by phone Wednesday.

The railroad named the Las Vegas hotel after Pedro De Castañeda, who chronicled Francisco Vásquez de Coronado’s expedition through the territory in the 1540s. All of the Harvey Houses, which mostly remained in the railway’s hands, thrived into the 1930s and struggled through the Depression, Fried said. During World War II, most of those hotels recovered, thanks to government contracts that paid them to serve military personnel. But by the late 1940s and early 1950s, the vast majority of the hotels were shutting down as both plane and car travel increased in popularity. La Castañeda closed in 1948 and remained vacant for 12 years before the railway sold it in 1960 to John Lawson of Las Vegas. Don and Marie Elhd then bought it in 1973 for a reported $85,000, with a long-term plan to restore it. Their dreams didn’t pan out, and the hotel slowly fell into disuse and disrepair. The bar remains open

on weekdays, with Marie Elhd serving the drinks, but the rest of the site is boarded up. Though the hotel has a reputation for being haunted, that doesn’t frighten Affeldt. “Every old building is reportedly haunted. That’s part of the charm.” He said he purchased about 950 pieces of historic furniture from La Fonda hotel in Santa Fe — which was once a Harvey House — last year. So when he opens La Castañeda, he said, “I can furnish it.” Fried, who has followed Affeldt’s purchase and restoration of La Posada in Winslow, said the developer’s dreams are tied to those of the citizens of Las Vegas. “The La Posada was brought back to life in the middle of nowhere,” he said. “Las Vegas would be easier to do that to because there’s a ‘there’ there. Las Vegas is a cool little town. It has a life. And La Castañeda could be the center of that life.”

ver, a highway pileup involving more than 100 vehicles killed one person and injured 30 others as heavy snow fell Saturday, authorities said. In California, about 1,200 houses in the adjacent cities of Azusa and Glendora as well as nearby Monrovia have been under evacuation orders because of the possibility of destructive flows from the San Gabriel Mountains, a rugged range largely covered by the Angeles National Forest. A dozen homes in Azusa were in particular danger. Television news footage shows mud burying one backyard, swallowing a metal fence and reaching up to the rim of a basketball hoop. “We’ve got to find a way to get the 100 tons of mud out of my backyard,” Ed Heinlein told the Los Angeles Times about the damage to his Azusa property. “We’re probably looking at tens of thousands of dollars in damage.” Forecasters said the upperlevel low at the storm’s center would come ashore and move east through the day, dragging rain with it but leaving only showers in California on Sunday — a lucky break for the evening’s Oscar red carpet festivities in Hollywood.

Relief: Runoff Thefts: Some less than average owners using their own tactics Continued from Page C-1

which are now far below normal. The National Resource Conservation Service said in February that the snowmelt runoff from the mountains is expected to be “less than average” to “significantly less than average” because the region has not had the needed snow and is still suffering from a persistent drought. Runoff forecasts range from about 70 percent of average near the Colorado border to around 30 percent on the Rio Grande entering the Elephant Butte Reservoir and the Jemez and Mimbres rivers, the agency said. “Snowpacks are abysmal at this point,” Frazier said. “Even this won’t get them back to normal levels for this time of year. But it’s a start. We wish we could keep this going and have more storms like this.”

Continued from Page C-1 on the grounds to the manager’s office, and he didn’t allow tenants to pay with money orders, save for special scenarios. The landowner said that he also installed surveillance cameras and drop boxes with special security latches. “The best answer is preventive,” Corda said. He said he doesn’t know if the security protocols were useful, or if the thieves just moved on, but he has yet to see more stolen checks or money orders. Corda said his security footage did reveal a few people nosing around the drop boxes, but no one tried to break into them while on film.

Regent: Foster could resurface as nominee if Martinez re-elected Continued from Page C-1 Martinez had intended for Foster to replace Nancy Long as a regent, but Long need not vacate her spot to make way for him. An attorney from Santa Fe, Long did not respond to requests for an interview about whether she plans to remain a regent until the Senate confirms Foster or someone else as her successor. Enrique Knell, the governor’s press secretary, said no immediate changes would be made on the Highlands board of regents. “The Senate Rules Committee was unable to schedule Carl Foster for a hearing during the past session. The composition [of the board of regents] remains the same unless a member steps down,” Knell said. He said Foster’s nomination had not been withdrawn, nor had the governor asked any sitting regent to step down. Foster, 69, could resurface as a regent nominee next year if Martinez is re-elected in November. Then the Senate Rules Committee could call him for a hearing and, possibly, send his nomination to the full Senate for a confirmation vote. Foster says he wants to serve on the Highlands governing board as Martinez proposed. “The governor has appointed me as a regent. To my knowledge, this appointment stands,” he said in an email. Foster declined to discuss his nomination or his lawsuit against Highlands, though he described the outcome as a settlement, not a dismissal of his case. The court order by U.S. District Judge James A. Parker said that all of Foster’s claims “are hereby dismissed with prejudice, and that each of the parties shall bear their own attorney fees and costs.” Foster holds a doctorate in educational administration from the University of Arizona. He was an adjunct professor of special education at Highlands’

satellite campus in Rio Rancho from 2007 until 2012, when the school stopped scheduling him to teach classes and monitor students working in the field of special education. He sued in 2013, claiming university administrators had committed breach of contract by terminating his employment. A graduate student had filed a complaint against Foster in 2011, alleging he was unfair. Foster said in his lawsuit that he was not made aware of the complaint by the university and could not defend himself against it. In court papers, he said he only learned of the allegation against him when the student dropped his class. After the student’s complaint, Foster said, the university cut his teaching load from three classes to one. By fall 2012, all his classes had been eliminated and he no longer was given supervisory responsibility for student teachers. Foster said Highlands “stonewalled” him when he sought details about the student’s complaint with open-records requests. In addition to his claim of breach of contact, he said he was denied due process. Rob Doughty, the university’s lawyer, said in court filings that Foster had no employment contract and that he could be terminated at the will of the campus administration. Perhaps more important, Highlands employees and administrators all said the substance of Foster’s charges was untrue. Four of the five sitting regents

declined to be interviewed for this story or did not respond to requests for comment. But Regent Frank Marchi of Albuquerque said in an interview that the Highlands governing board had had no conversations about whether Long should remain in office. “But I hope she does. All of us have the interest of the university at heart,” Marchi said of the sitting regents. A 1967 graduate of Highlands, Marchi said he was happy with the direction of the school in recent times. “Enrollment is growing. We’re a little short of 4,000 students now, and we have the lowest tuition in the state,” he said. Foster had twice before received appointments from Martinez. She named him to the board of the National Hispanic Cultural Center and the Public School Capital Outlay Oversight Task Force. He also has worked or volunteered as an analyst for Republican legislators. Lopez, the senator and Democratic gubernatorial candidate, said that Martinez’s attempt to make Foster a Highlands regent would create divisions where unity should exist. Lopez’s committee had scheduled a hearing for Foster for the third week of the legislative session, then removed it from its calendar after learning of his lawsuit.

Music in his blood

Guatemalan native embraces life in Santa Fe, finds solace in his guitar For The New Mexican


rwin Sagche has earned the right to moan the blues, but he doesn’t. Instead, he sings the joys of being alive while embodying his chapter of the American dream. Sagche, a Guatemalan immigrant, is a musician, a restaurant manager, a student at Santa Fe Community College and a volunteer firefighter with Santa Fe County. He’s also a father of two girls, 7-year-old Sofia and 2-yearold Lesli, with his wife, Amelia. “My family is the pride of my life,” said Sagche, who feels fortunate to live in Santa Fe, where he and his family can prosper. “I’m also proud to have friends to play music with, and the opportunity to get a good education.” But his life hasn’t always been easy. At the age of 11, Sagche lost his mother, who was killed in a bus crash in Guatemala. “My mother was on her way from San Antonio, my hometown, to Guatemala City, where she sold vegetables at the market,” he said. Fate struck again three years later. Sagche’s father, a guitar player, was returning home from Guatemala City on a bus after playing a gig at a radio station. “His bus went off the narrow road, and he was killed,” Sagche said. “It was the same mountain road where my mother was killed.” With both parents dead, Sagche moved in with an older sister in San Antonio. He started his first job, lining wooden caskets with velvet for an uncle. He also discovered his passion for

playing the guitar. Music was in Sagche’s blood. His father had played guitar, but he never had the opportunity to teach his son. “I pretty much taught myself,” Sagche said. The guitar became an extension of his being. He started to jam with friends. When he was 15, he secured his first gig. “I played guitar and sang in the San Antonio de Padua Church,” he said. “The church, which sat in the shadow of the Volcano de Fuego, was a special place for me.” Life was hard in Guatemala, where the average worker earns just $10 to $15 a day. So when Sagche had a chance to move to Santa Fe to live with a sister here, he jumped at the opportunity, he said. He was 18. “Like most immigrants from Guatemala, my first job was as a dishwasher,” he said, recalling his first job at Bishop’s Lodge in 1995. “Almost all of us Guatemalans start off in the restaurant business as dishwashers. It’s a good way to learn the business.” Sagche climbed the ladder of the business and now is a waiter and manager at Tomasita’s — a 45-hour-a-week job — and on Sundays, he is the assistant manager at Pojoaque’s Sopaipilla Factory. Despite his six-day work schedule, Sagche still finds time to refresh his spirit with music. After work, he rehearses with a new band, Rufugio Clandestino, a quartet that plays rock ’n’ roll, reggae and cumbias. Sagche’s love for jazz also will undoubtedly find its way into the band’s repertoire. He also helps others learn to play the guitar. He said he gave lessons to his niece, Pilar Her-

nandez, and she now plays in a band. “I started giving guitar lessons about three years ago,” he said. Sagche also has squeezed in time to attend the community college, where he is studying to be an emergency medical technician. “I would like to be a paramedic because I enjoy helping people,” he said. “But I’m not unhappy in the restaurant business. I’m pretty happy no matter what I’m doing. I just like having choices.” How does he manage just a

hectic schedule? “I get up around 5 a.m.,” he said. “I like to work with weights in the morning, because there’s no time during the day.” He summed up his highenergy lifestyle with a little philosophical discourse: “If you think negative thoughts, negative things will happen to you, so I try to think positive thoughts,” he said. “Every morning I give thanks to God for the beautiful day and my beautiful family. I’m a lucky man.”

If you think negative thoughts, negative things will happen to you, so I try “ to think positive thoughts. ... I’m a lucky man.”

s new parents, we’ve reached the one-year mark! It’s been 365 days of adventures in onesies, crawling and teething — plus many memories for the photo album. The latest entry in the baby book is the first birthday celebration. As first-timers, we were unsure how to celebrate this rite of passage. With just days to go until the big O-N-E, we finally decided we should organize a small gathering with cake, balloons and bubbles — not the kind to blow but to drink — since grown-ups made up the entire guest list, save for one delightful 8-month-old who made it feel like a legitimate children’s Bizia Greene birthday party. Etiquette Rules! It was a simple affair spent watching our son and his “girlfriend” interact with one another — entertainment in its own right. The biggest dilemma of the day was about the gifts: to open or not to open, that was the question. Birthday parties are an involved endeavor — choosing paper or email invitations, who to include and goody bags. And then the decision about opening the gifts. Readers have written in about this quandary, and those I’ve polled are evenly divided. Some parents say opening birthday presents at a party is time-consuming, taking away from the momentum. Children can get jealous, and some people, including parents, might feel embarrassed for not giving enough. Several parents advise against it because the children are on sensory overload and too revved up to fully appreciate the experience. And then there is the inevitable chaos of gifts and gift tags flying in opposite directions, with instructions and parts getting lost in the jumble of paper and trash. It happened at our party when a check from a beloved auntie got tossed in the trash. Poor Dad had to sift through bags of garbage to look for it — which he did successfully, thank goodness! The argument for opening gifts made by many parents I polled is that it is simply rude not to. The enjoyment boys and girls experience watching their gift be opened, especially when they carefully select and wrap it, teaches the joy of giving. These parents also feel the birthday child learns how to express gratitude publicly. Our intimate gathering of four friends and family was the appropriate setting for opening gifts. Our child was young enough that we needed to assist him, and it was a reasonable-size group who could enjoy the experience while still conversing with one another. This scenario is best suited for 10 or fewer guests. For larger parties, either choose to delay the gifts until after or stay organized by putting a plan in place like the following: u Assign someone to keep a record of gifts received and from whom during the party. u Assign someone to keep the gifts organized, with instructions and parts contained. u Have your child read aloud who the gift is from. u This two-chair plan was suggested by a reader: Invite the gift giver to sit in a chair next to the birthday boy/girl as the gift is opened to make it an even more personal experience. For children not opening gifts, make an announcement and thank guests for what he or she has to look forward to later. But be prepared for the little boy or girl who really wants their gift opened, and let them share that experience together in private. In advance, engage your child in age-appropriate decisions about the gifts. If your child is the guest, prep with why the host might not open gifts at the party. At 6 years old, or when your child can grasp the lesson, you might even discuss a “no gift” policy or donations, like one boy who asked for dog food products so they could be donated to the local animal shelter. No matter when a child receives a gift, a thank-you note is a must from an early age. Even if you write on their behalf, a talking child can express their feelings about it. This early introduction gets them familiar with one of the most fundamental lessons of etiquette. For givers and receivers alike, the ability to convey gratitude is an invaluable gift to one’s character and foundation.

‘12 Years a Slave’ nabs top Spirit honors By Jake Coyle The Associated Press

SANTA MONICA, Calif. — 12 Years a Slave rolled at the Spirit Awards, winning five awards including best feature at the annual independent film celebration. On the eve of the Academy Awards, the slavery tale won awards for director Steve McQueen, actress Lupita Nyong’o, screenwriter John Ridley and cinematographer Sean Bobbitt. In a more laid-back, ceremony in Santa Monica, just west of Los Angeles, 12 Years a Slave was applauded as the clear favorite of the indie circuit. The Spirit Awards could end up being — more than ever before — a dress rehearsal to Sunday’s Academy Awards. 12 Years a Slave is considered, albeit extremely narrowly, the favorite for best picture over the

space spectacle Gravity and the 1970s con-artist American Hustle. Neither film was eligible at the Spirits, which honor films made for $20 million or less. The acting winners, too, may line up. All of the Steve Oscar favorites won SaturMcQueen day at the Spirits, including best actor for Matthew McConaughey in Dallas Buyers Club and Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine. McConaughey’s co-star, Jared Leto, won best male supporting performance. Leto gave what might be the acceptance speech to end all acceptance speeches, rattling off an absurd list of thank yous to not just those with Dallas Buyers Club, but

Mark Twain, Jackson Pollack, Mozart, Herman Hess, Wayne Gretzky and many more. The actor-rocker added, with emphasis, “all the women I’ve been with and all the women who think they’ve been with me.” For many, the Spirit Awards conclude months of award-season events, and they provide a chance to exhale before the Oscars. McConaughey, Blanchett, Leto and Nyong’o have racked up a slew of awards, often triumphing over the same colleagues. “What am I going to say that I haven’t already said?” Blanchett remarked in her acceptance speech. On her way into the luncheon, the actress also repeated her view of the renewed scandal surrounding Blue Jasmine director Woody Allen and Dylan Farrow’s claims he sexually assaulted her a child: “It’s a family issue, and I hope they can resolve it as a family.”

Evolution debate spurs controversial Noah’s Ark project By Dylan Lovan The Associated Press

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The founder of a Bible-themed museum who recently debated evolution with TV’s Science Guy Bill Nye said Thursday that the widely watched event helped to boost enthusiasm among followers who invested in a project to build a 510-foot Noah’s Ark. In a webcast from the same Creation Museum stage where the debate took place, Ken Ham announced that the municipal bond offering has raised enough money to begin construction on the wooden ark, estimated to cost about $73 million. Groundbreaking is planned for May and the ark is expected to be finished by the summer of 2016. “It did help,” Ham said of the Feb. 4 debate with Nye. “We obviously had a big spurt toward the end [of the bond deadline], and I think it was people who were involved in this, who really decided they were going to do something.” Ham said he could not go into details about the bond investors. The bond registration ended before the debate date, so no new investors were added after it, said Mark Looy, a vice president and spokesman with Ham’s ministry, Answers in Genesis. Nye said he was disappointed the project would go forward and said he hoped it “goes out of business.” “If he builds that ark, it’s my strong opinion, it’s bad for the commonwealth of Kentucky and bad for scientists based in Kentucky and bad for the U.S.,” Nye said. “And I’m not joking, bad for the world.” Answers in Genesis unveiled the proposal in 2010 for a $150 million theme park that would include the ark. But private donations to the project did not keep pace with the construction timeline, forcing its backers to delay the ark’s construction and divide the park development into phases. The bonds were offered by the city of Williamstown last year. Ham’s ministry and the Creation Museum enjoyed an avalanche of news media attention during the Feb. 4 debate with Nye on evolution and the Bible, which was streamed live on the Web. Answers in Genesis said millions around the world watched the event, and it was followed by numerous national news reports and TV talk show discussions. Ham said the bond issue faced many obstacles, including what he called misleading news media reports and attempts by opponents to disrupt the bond offering. He said the high-profile debate helped shed light on the misinformation and emboldened the bond investors to press on and get the deal done. He said, however, that there was not a big boost in private donations for the project after the debate. Looy said the bond total amount could not be disclosed, due to underwriter restrictions. But a December bond document describing the project listed the amount at $62 million. Looy said that figure is not correct, but he could not give the amount. Ham has said the debate with Nye also introduced to a wider audience his ministry’s views that the Bible’s creation story is a true historical account. Those views, based on stories in the Old Testament, are illustrated by exhibits in the Creation Museum, which opened in 2007 and has been criticized by scientists as an affront to evolution science. Ham said Thursday that 2 million visitors have entered the museum since it opened.

Gene is nuts T

Horoscope HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, March 2, 2014: This year you express your creativity through a combination of unusually insightful thinking and practicality. You will draw many different types of potential suitors to you. If you are attached, the two of you will need to adapt your relationship to your stronger personality. Remember, this bond is a 50-50 partnership. ARIES gives you strong guidance, especially with money. The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHH Use the morning to get some extra sleep or to lounge around reading your paper. When you finally perk up midday, you will be ready to greet others. A discussion about money seems inevitable; you could be talking for quite a while. Tonight: Could go till the wee hours. This Week: Do not minimize the importance of communication. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH Use the morning to get together with loved ones. You

Tonight: Get some R and R. This Week: You’ll snap out of a funk by midday Tuesday. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH You seem to have had a lot of pressure put on you in the past few days.

This Week: Use mid-Tuesday through Thursday morning to do research. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHH Make a long-distance call in the morning, before you join your family.

This Week: Honor your feelings while still being responsible.

Last week’s answers

This Week: You will be privy to information that has not yet been shared. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Make and return calls in the morning.

o: Dan Zak, reporter, The Washington Post Re: My sanity I am taking this opportunity to respond to your recent message, which you delivered via social media for all to see. You noted disapprovingly that in a previous message I had put two spaces after a period. When I acknowledged I had, and implied that I would continue to do so, you wrote this: “Are you out of your (expletive) mind?” I forgive you the intemperate language. You are a young and headstrong man, susceptible to frenzies of testosterGene one-hostility. Plus, the question you ask Weingarten is a valid one. The Washington Before I address it, though, I must ask: Post Would you express such contempt to an abuser of heroin or an alcoholic? Because that is what we are dealing with here, Dan — an addiction, and one over which I am powerless. This is way beyond the reach of 12-Step. There is no Higher Power to importune. God must have a triviality threshold, and I doubt this tiptoes over it. It is not trivial to me. I leave ruin in my wake. Just as an alcoholic hurts those around him, I, too, have victims. I only recently discovered this: The generously talented Washington Post copy editors, whose skill set goes beyond uberliteracy to eclectic knowledge of the arts, sports, history and science — these underappreciated, overworked, oppressed professionals have had to, every week, manually, tediously, search out and kill all my extra spaces. I know shame. As you probably are aware, the period-space-space reflex is an atavism, a relic from the era of the manual typewriter, when all letters (“m” and “i” alike) took up an equal amount of horizontal space, meaning there was a lot of erratically dispersed white space in lines of type. Accordingly, an extra space after a sentence helped maintain clarity. Now that letters take up proportional space, this extra space is no longer necessary. (Manual typewriters are responsible for other dreadful things, including the odious but enduring QWERTY keyboard, which was designed to separate frequently used letters so as to minimize the “jamming” of keys, but which makes no sense at all today. It places the ubiquitous “a” beneath our weakest and most klutzy finger — the left pinky — while reserving the prime, easy-access real estate — under the mighty right pointer — to the negligible “j.” Even designers of linotypes, an equally antique technology, knew better than that, clustering the most frequently used letters on the keyboard. This is why old newspapers occasionally had stray lines of type reading “etoain shrdlu.” Ninety-seven percent of all readers, including you, Dan, have no idea what I am talking about, but the other 3 percent are making little gasping sucky noises of nostalgic delight, beside their soaking dentures.) But I digress. I learned to type on a manual typewriter. My typing teacher happened to be my mother, who actually happened also to be a professional typing teacher; so, as you can imagine, this was a lesson well-learned and hard-wired into that part of the brain intimidated by feared teachers and dead mothers. I continued typing on manual typewriters well into my 20s. For me, “period-space-space” is a reflex no more resistible or unlearnable than the reflex that happens to you when you stick two fingers down your throat, or are subjected to my space-happy writing. On behalf of my sainted mother, I apologize for the discomfort you must feel at reading this column, inasmuch as the copy editors have graciously allowed my two spaces to remain, this one time. Just for you.

Shockers rout Bears to finish undefeated

JOHANNESBURG — With his past triumphs now tarnished because he shot to death his girlfriend, Oscar Pistorius on Monday will enter court to be confronted with the jarring possibility that he will be sent to prison for at least 25 years. For the champion runner without legs, who trained himself Oscar to overcome all Pistorius obstacles, nothing else matters now but beating the murder charge against him. Pistorius’ family said Saturday that their focus is only on the trial. If found guilty, PistoReeva rius’ entire life story Steenkamp will be recast. When Pistorius walks on his prosthetics into North Gauteng High Court for the start of his trial, seemingly little remains of the Blade Runner, the double amputee who ran alongside the world’s best and inspired many by overcoming the loss of his legs before he was a year old.

WICHITA, Kan. — The chant started when Ron Baker walked toward the Wichita State bench for the final time, and reached a crescendo when he popped the front of his jersey — No. 31. As in, 31-0. A perfect regular season. “Undefeated!” the sellout crowd roared in unison. Wichita St. 68 “Undefeated!” Missouri St. 45 Baker finished with 13 points, Cleanthony Early led the way with 19, and the second-ranked Shockers rolled to a 68-45 victory over Missouri State on Saturday, becoming the first team since Saint Joseph’s in 2004 to enter its conference tournament unbeaten. Wichita State (18-0) will have a first-round bye in the Missouri Valley tournament next week. “My teammates told me a couple weeks ago that my number was something special, because that’s how many games we could potentially win,” Baker said. “I didn’t put that together myself, but it’s very special. It’s going to be something I look back on forever.” Missouri State (19-11, 9-9) had the Shockers in trouble when they met Jan. 11 in Springfield, Mo., but the Bears blew a 19-point second-half lead and ultimately lost 72-69 in overtime. They never came close to making it a game Saturday, trailing by double-digits in the opening minutes and rarely trimming the lead to fewer than 20 points in the second half. The result is the best start since UNLV began 34-0 and lost in the 1991 national title game. Wichita State is also off to the best start by a Missouri Valley team since Indiana State, led by Larry Bird, won its first 33 games and fell to Michigan State in the 1979 title game. The Shockers’ last loss came in the Final Four, too — to eventual champ Louisville last year. “It seems like the season started about three weeks ago as opposed to months ago,” Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall said. “It’s been incredible. They’ve met every challenge.”

But he didn’t seek comfort from him.

Rangerettes thrash Santa Fe Prep The New Mexican

The only thing that was standing in the way of the Mora girls basketball team and a regular season and tournament District 2AA championship was Santa Fe Preparatory, and the host Rangerettes completely shut down the Blue Griffins on Saturday to sweep the district championships. Mora kept Prep to eight points in the first half en route to a 58-26 victory. The Rangerettes (22-3 overall) came into the game knowing they had to shut down the Prep (16-10) sharpshooters, and that plan came to fruition as no Blue Griffin scored in double digits. “We came out with the intent to get out to a good start and we took away their outside shooting,” Mora head coach Mark Cassidy said. “We weren’t going to let them start making 3-pointers.” This was Mora’s final game against current 2AA opponents, as they will face new teams in next year’s Class AA. For Cassidy, this was the perfect finale to the end of an era. “It’s a good way to exit the district,” he said. “I’m sure they’re happy to see us go.” Briana Pacheco led the Rangerettes with 16 points while Gerty Herrera added 14.

Both Desiray Anderson and Alexis Mundt scored eight points to lead Prep. BOYS BASKETBALL ESCALANTE 58, MCCURDY 49 Bigger was beautiful in Tierra Amarilla, and the Lobos’ size outmatched anything the Bobcats could offer in the 4A championship. The Lobos (21-3) held a 15-11 lead after a quarter and maintained that edge (by a 41-37 count) entering the fourth. McCurdy was hurt by a dislocated hip suffered by eighth-grader Isaiah Vigil, who had 14 points by that point. He continued to play, but was not the same after that. “He popped it in and played for a little while,” said McCurdy head coach Ruben Archuleta. “He just couldn’t move like before. And their height just got to us.” Six-foot-6 post Adam Edwards had 16 points for Escalante, and Reynaldo Atencio added 10. Dennis Archuleta chipped in for McCurdy (17-11) with 10 points. ONE-GAME PLAYOFF FOR 5B TOP SEED Santa Fe Waldorf was rewarded with a playoff game on Saturday night, this after Evangel Christian beat Walatowa 72-67 to finish at 7-1 atop 5B with the Wolves.

Waldorf athletic director Daniel Wendland wrote in a text message the game will be played at Bernalillo High School at 6:30 p.m. on Monday. NORTHERN NEW MEXICO WINS CONFERENCE TITLE Northern New Mexico College head men’s basketball coach Ryan Cordova evoked the voices of 1983 when he talked about his Eagles. For the first time in 31 years, Northern New Mexico will have a team in the NAIA National Men’s Basketball Tournament, this after Northern New Mexico College beat Ashford (Iowa) University 51-48 in the Association of Independent Institutions Conference Division 2 championship in Clinton, Iowa. The last team to make it to the tournament was the 1983 College of Santa Fe team coached by Lenny Roybal, and the Knights advanced to the Elite Eight. Guard Matthew Brito, a 2008 graduate of Española Valley, was named the tournament MVP and fellow guard Eric Garcia joined him on the all-tournament team. Also A.J. Peralta, a Roswell graduate, earned allconference honors. Northern New Mexico (17-15) will learn who it plays on March 5 and will play in the first round of the 32-team tournament on March 12 in Point Lookout, Mo.

Smart helps Oklahoma State upset No. 5 Kansas The Associated Press

STILLWATER, Okla. — Marcus Smart scored 20 of his 21 points in the second half to help Oklahoma State defeat No. 5 Kansas and give a major boost to the Cowboys’ once-fading NCAA tournament hopes. Oklahoma State (19-10, 7-9 Big 12) overcame a 10-point deficit in the second half. The Cowboys improved to 3-0 since Smart returned from a threegame suspension for shoving a Texas Tech fan. NO. 1 FLORIDA 79, LSU 61 In Gainesville, Fla., Dorian Finney-Smith scored 16 points, and top-ranked Florida used a season-high 13 3-pointers to extend its school-record winning streak to 21 games.

NO. 21 MEMPHIS 72, NO. 7 LOUISVILLE 66 In Memphis, Tenn., Chris Crawford hit a 3-pointer with 1:36 left to put Memphis ahead

to stay, and the Tigers swept the season series from the Cardinals. No. 21 Memphis (22-7, 11-5 American Athletic Conference) trailed 65-57 with 4:45 left when Michael Dixon Jr. scored six straight, jumpstarting the Tigers who scored 15 of the final 16 points. XAVIER 75, NO. 9 CREIGHTON 69 In Cincinnati, Justin Martin had 19 points and a career-high 16 rebounds on Saturday, and Xavier led most of the way in front of the largest crowd in the 14-year history of the Musketeers’ arena. It was a long-awaited rematch for Xavier, (20-9, 10-6), which lost one of the Big East’s most wide-open games at Creighton in January. VCU 67, NO. 10 SAINT LOUIS 56 In Richmond, Va., Treveon Graham had 17 points and eight rebounds, and Virginia Commonwealth added a quality win to its NCAA tournament resume by beating Saint Louis. Briante Weber added 13 points and four steals for the Rams (22-7, 10-4 Atlantic 10), who handed Saint Louis its second consecutive defeat following a school-record, 19-game winning streak.

CONNECTICUT 51, NO. 11 CINCINNATI 45 In Hartford, Conn., Shabazz Napier scored 18 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead UConn. The Huskies (23-6, 11-5 American Athletic Conference) won despite going without a field goal for the game’s final 7½ minutes. But they held Cincinnati (24-5, 13-3) to just 13 baskets on 48 shots. Napier, the Huskies’ player of the year candidate, bested Cincinnati’s, Sean Kilpatrick, who finished with 16 points. NO. 13 SAN DIEGO STATE 82, FRESNO STATE 67 In Fresno, Calif., Xavier Thames scored 22 points and Aqueel Quinn added 17 in San Diego State’s victory over Fresno State. The Aztecs (24-3, 14-2 Mountain West) shot 60 percent from the field, including 9 of 15 on 3-pointers, to cool off a Fresno State team that had won seven of eight. Quinn was 4 of 5 from long range to help San Diego State snap a two-game skid on the road. KANSAS STATE 80, NO. 15 IOWA STATE 73 In Manhattan, Kan., Will Spradling hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer

with 1:38 left and Kansas State overcame a huge game by Iowa State star Melvin Ejim. Shane Southwell had 13 points for the Wildcats (20-9, 10-6 Big 12), who moved into a four-way tie for second place in the conference. Looking for the No. 2 seed in the league tournament, they play at Oklahoma State on Monday and then host Baylor on Saturday to end the regular season. NO. 16 MICHIGAN 66, MINNESOTA 56 In Ann Arbor, Mich., Nik Stauskas scored 21 points and Glenn Robinson III provided an emotional lift with his dunks as Michigan locked up at least a share of the Big Ten title with a victory over Minnesota. SOUTH CAROLINA 72, NO. 17 KENTUCKY 67 In Columbia, S.C., Brenton Williams scored 24 points for South Carolina, which held on after Kentucky coach John Calipari was ejected midway through the second half. ILLINOIS 53, NO. 18 MICHIGAN STATE 46 In East Lansing, Mich., Tracy Abrams scored 12 points, leading Illinois past slumping Michigan State.

NO. 19 NORTH CAROLINA 60, VIRGINIA TECH 56 In Blacksburg, Va., James Michael McAdoo scored 15 points to lead No. 19 North Carolina to its 11th straight victory. McAdoo hit 6 of 9 from the floor for the Tar Heels (22-7, 12-4), who started Atlantic Coast Conference play 1-4 and have not lost since. The Tar Heels haven’t won this many games in a row since opening the 2008-09 season with 13 straight victories. NO. 23 SMU 70, UCF 55 In Dallas, Markus Kennedy scored 18 points, Nic Moore had 11 of his 13 in the second half and SMU took another step toward its first NCAA tournament berth in 21 years. The Mustangs (23-6, 12-4 American Athletic) improved to 15-0 at home, with the last nine coming at newly renovated Moody Coliseum, going into their final home game Wednesday night against seventh-ranked Louisville. The Cardinals lost to No. 21 Memphis 72-66 on Saturday. OKLAHOMA 77, NO. 24 TEXAS 65 In Norman, Okla., Isaiah Cousins scored a career-high 24 points and Oklahoma gained ground in the race for second place in the Big 12.

Buddy Hield hit four 3-pointers and scored 17 points for Oklahoma (21-8, 10-6), which entered the game in a four-way battle with Texas (21-8, 10-6), Kansas State and Iowa State behind Kansas. NEW MEXICO STATE 72, CAL STATE BAKERSFIELD 57 In Bakersfield, Calif. Tshilidzi Nephawe scored 15 points and hauled in 16 rebounds, while Sim Bhullar added 13 and 12, helping short-handed New Mexico State put away Cal State Bakersfield 72-57 Saturday night. The Aggies (22-9, 11-4 Western Athletic Conference) shot 51 percent from the field. Daniel Mullings chipped in 14 points, and Travon Landry and DK Eldridge each had 12. CS Bakersfield (12-17, 5-10) went 21 of 66 on field goal attempts (31.8 percent). Corey Hall, Issiah Grayson and Brandon Barnes each had 10 points. NM State trailed 6-0 early but pushed toward a 28-15 lead late in the first half after an Eldridge 3-pointer and led by double digits the rest of the way. Only seven players saw action for NM State, as they were playing without K.C. Ross-Miller and Renaldo Dixon, who were both suspended after an altercation following Thursday’s game at Utah Valley.

That’s the only time Henley has won — in his debut as a PGA Tour member — and he hasn’t been in this situation since then. Henley has only two top 10s since that win down from Waikiki Beach at the start of 2012. Now he has to chase one of golf’s biggest stars, on a course where only one players — Ernie Els in 2008 — has come from behind on the final day to win. “I’m trying not to pay attention to what Rory is doing,” Henley said. “Obviously, he’s playing great and he’s been in this situation a little bit more

than me. But I still have a lot of confidence and I’m just going to try to play my game and not worry about what he’s doing too much.” Russell Knox of Scotland had a 68 and was three shots behind, while Jhonattan Vegas of Venezuela had a 66 and was another shot back. Tiger Woods is still in the game, but just barely. Woods matched the low round of the day. He was among five players who shot 65, all before the leaders teed off and the wind kicked into gear, but


Devils’ Jagr joins 700-goal club Only six players have more; NHL record is 894

Continued from Page D-1 Russian law passed last year that banned gay “propaganda” to minors, punishable by fines and jail time. The openly gay former tennis great said she’d like the International Olympic Committee to add sexual orientation to the list of protections in its charter and consider the issue when deciding host countries for future Olympics. Here are five things to know about King’s impressions of the Sochi Games, borscht and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Putin, a hugger: King learned while in Sochi that Putin reportedly hugged Ireen Wust, a Dutch bisexual speedskater who led all Sochi medal winners with five — two gold and three silver. “It’s great,” King said. “Think he knew it? Doesn’t matter, that’s the way the world should be. He should be embracing humanity.” Putin said ahead of the Olympics that gay athletes and visitors were welcome, but warned to “leave the kids alone.” Mixed messages: King said she met with a Russian teen who is gay and getting bullied. “I’m worried about the LGBT community for their safety,” she said. “Basically, it’s OK to hate now and you can get away with it. I’m concerned, more than concerned. The main thing is to let them know we care and we can help LGBT organizations that help the community. Dialogue is always good, but action is important, too. “The athletes pretty much kept it mainstream, ‘this is about sports, keep the politics out.’ There’s politics in everything, especially with this.” Hockey heartbreak: U.S. hockey player Julie Chu met King a few days after the team lost to Canada 3-2 in overtime in the gold-medal game. The U.S. had a 2-0 lead with less than 4 minutes left in regulation. King was “heartbroken” after the loss, noting she’s become “hooked on hockey” after hanging around former U.S. Olympic hockey stars Angela Ruggiero and Caitlin Cahow. Ruggiero is now an IOC member and Cahow represented the U.S. at the opening ceremony. Chu, a four-time Olympian, was the U.S. flag bearer at the closing ceremony. Best dish: King recalled playing tennis in Russia at age 18 in 1962 when there was “hardly any food, just black bread.” While times have changed, she was hoping to get “some borscht, it’s the one thing I missed. I love borscht, but got cabbage soup instead. It was delicious.” She visited the USA House and attended the closing ceremony with a U.S. delegation that included former Olympic gold-medal winning speedskaters Bonnie Blair and Eric Heiden. “They are iconic. They are speedskating to me, they put it on the map.” Breakthroughs: Collins will make his home debut with the Nets on Monday night. So what does it say about the evolution of male sports in America to have Collins in the NBA and openly gay Michael Sam expected to play in the NFL next season? “We’re getting there. Because the youth, they don’t care as much,” said the 70-yearold King. “They’re judging people by their contribution on the team. It should be a non-issue. We need these breakthroughs and young people stepping up. It’s putting yourself in the spotlight.”

it was enough to move the No. 1 player 49 spots up the leaderboard and into a tie for 17th. Even so, he was seven shots behind. Woods has never won a PGA Tour event when trailing by more than five shots entering the last round. “Today was a positive day,” Woods said after his lowest score in 10 rounds this year. “Hit the ball well and made some putts and got myself back in the hunt.” It doesn’t figure to be easy for Woods or anyone to track down McIlroy, who has converted the 54-hole lead in his last four PGA Tour wins dating to the 2011 Masters, where he blew a four-shot lead. That streak includes the Honda Classic two years, which he won to rise to No. 1 in the world for the first time. “Definitely not a coincidence,” McIlroy said. “I learned a lot that day. I learned not to protect a 54-hole lead. I should have just stuck to the game plan, stuck to my process, not look at the leaderboard, not look at what other people are doing. … And that’s the reason that every 54-hole lead that I’ve had since, I’ve been able to close the deal. Hopefully, I can keep that run going tomorrow.” It would be a remarkable turnaround for McIlroy, who a year ago was so frustrated with his game and high expectations that he walked off the course after 26 holes, a mistake he vowed to never repeat. “There’s still 18 holes to go,” he said. “But I’m feeling comfortable with where I am.”

New Jersey Devils’ Jaromir Jagr, front, is congratulated by Ryan Carter, right, after Jagr scored his 700th goal in the second period of Saturday’s game against the New York Islanders. KATHY KMONICEK/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Now that Jaromir Jagr has 700 NHL goals in the bank, the future Hockey Hall of Famer is already setting his sights on his next big milestone. There are only six guys who have ever scored more. So yes, this is a significant marker to reach. “Maybe not for Wayne Gretzky, but for the rest of us, it’s a very big number — 800 is a little bit better than 700,” he said. Jagr scored in the second period of the New Jersey Devils’ 6-1 victory over the New York Islanders on Saturday. Through bits of laughter, Jagr suggested that 800 goals is attainable, as well as Gretzky’s record 894. With tongue firmly in cheek, Jagr said he could get to the first number in two years and Gretzky’s mark in four. So far, he has no plans for the special puck that got past goalie Evgeni Nabokov. “I might save the 800th one, but I don’t know what I am going to do with the 700th,” he said with a smile. Jagr’s tally sparked New Jersey’s four-goal second period, and Martin Brodeur earned the win in his first start in more than a month. Jagr gave the Devils a 2-0 lead

early in the second, and Ryane Clowe, Marek Zidlicky, and Mark Fayne followed in rapid succession. The four goals came in a span of 4:36 in the first 8:07 of the second. Adam Henrique opened the scoring with a power-play goal at 5:00 of the first. New Jersey needed only 12 shots to net its first four goals and 16 total to get to five against the beleaguered Nabokov. Clowe and Zidlicky, with a milestone assist from Jagr, also tallied during power plays. “The game went away from us pretty quickly. We deflated after they scored two power-play goals,” Nabokov said. “This is part of the business. You got knocked down, but you have to get up again and you have to do the job.” The 42-year-old Jagr moved into the elite goal group when he netted his 19th of the season. The Islanders have been Jagr’s top target in his 20 NHL seasons. He has 61 goals and 88 assists in 101 career games. “Is it that many? I love this team,” Jagr said. “It’s my favorite team. That’s a lot of goals. It’s almost 10 percent.” Jagr stickhandled from the right wing boards into the slot and then slid a shot along the ice that eluded Nabokov at 3:31 of the second. Jagr was surrounded by his teammates on the ice with him and then skated across the front of the bench, patting gloves along the way. He received a nice ovation from the crowd when his milestone was announced.


James leads Heat to victory over Orlando The Associated Press

MIAMI — LeBron James’ switch to a clear mask didn’t hinder his shooting eye, and he had 20 points Saturday to help the Miami Heat earn their seventh consecutive victory by beating the Orlando Magic 112-98. At the NBA’s request, James dispensed with the black mask he wore Thursday when playing for the first time since he broke his nose. He missed only four shots, grabbed nine rebounds and had seven assists. Dwyane Wade scored 24 points and Chris Bosh 20 for the Heat, who shot 58 percent. Eleven players scored for the Heat, and their bench totaled 39 points. ROCKETS 118, PISTONS 110 In Houston, Terrence Jones had 22 points and

10 rebounds, and Houston opened a big early lead and beat Detroit for its third win in four games. Jones finished 10 of 15 from the floor as Houston shot 50 percent for the game, including 61 percent in the first half. Houston scored 41 points in the first quarter and finished 11 of 33 from behind the arc. PACERS 102, CELTICS 97 In Boston, Paul George scored 10 of Indiana’s last 12 points, and the Pacers beat Boston two days after beating another of the NBA’s worst teams. The team with the best record in the NBA had trouble with the Celtics, who have the fourth-worst record in the East. On Thursday night, the Pacers won 101-96 over the Milwaukee Bucks, who have the league’s worst record. NETS 107, BUCKS 98 In Milwaukee, Marcus

Thornton scored 12 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter to lead Brooklyn over Milwaukee and within a game of .500. Brooklyn’s Kevin Garnett missed the game with back spasms but wasn’t needed as the Nets never trailed in the second half against the NBA’s worst team. Thornton, playing in his third game for Brooklyn since being obtained in a Feb. 19 trade with Sacramento, came off the bench to make 8 of 13 from the field to help the Nets finish their seven-game road trip 4-3. A win over Chicago at home on Monday and the Nets (28-29) will get back to .500 for the first time since they were 2-2 on Nov. 5. WIZARDS 122, 76ERS 103 In Philadelphia, Trevor Ariza made eight 3-pointers and scored a career-high 40 points to help Washington win its sixth straight game.

Ariza made all six 3-point attempts in the first quarter for 24 points and finished 14 of 23 from the floor overall. The 76ers lost their 13th straight game on the night they retired Allen Iverson’s No. 3. Iverson had his number sent to the rafters, fit between Maurice Cheeks’ No. 10 and Charles Barkley’s No. 34. GRIZZLIES 110, CAVALIERS 96 In Memphis, Tenn., Zach Randolph had 23 points and 14 rebounds, and the Memphis Grizzlies used a big second half to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers. Randolph had 17 points in the second half to help Memphis outscore Cleveland 56-31 and rally from an early 15-point deficit to win its fifth straight at home. CLIPPERS 108, PELICANS 76 In Los Angeles, Chris Paul had 21 points and eight assists, Blake Griffin added

20 points before both AllStars sat out the fourth quarter, and the Los Angeles Clippers breezed to a 108-76 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night. TIMBERWOLVES 108, KINGS 97 In Sacramento, Kevin Martin scored 26 points, Kevin Love had 22 and the Minnesota Timberwolves reached .500 with a win over the Sacramento Kings. TRAIL BLAZERS 102, NUGGETS 96 In Portland, Ore., Robin Lopez scored 18 points, LaMarcus Aldridge returned from an injury to add 16, and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Denver Nuggets to sweep the series for the first time in 15 years. Nicolas Batum had a career-high 16 rebounds for Portland, which has won its last five games. Kenneth Faried, Randy Foye and Evan Fournier scored 16 points apiece.

Wilson’s trip has Cactus League abuzz Super Bowl-winning QB to visit Rangers to inspire, not to play

Seattle QB Russell Wilson throws out the ceremonial first pitch before the Mariners and the New York Yankees played June 7 in Seattle. Wilson, who played minor league baseball for parts of two seasons before becoming an NFL star, will visit the Texas Rangers spring training camp Monday in Surprise, Ariz.

By Tim Booth The Associated Press

PEORIA, Ariz. — John Hicks still knows the scouting report. The former Virginia catcher remembers that when Russell Wilson was at the plate he would try to hit the ball back up the middle. And when Wilson was on the mound at North Carolina State, he liked to throw his slider. It’s still a little surreal for Hicks, a catcher in the Seattle Mariners system, to know the guy he played against in college, and played alongside growing up in Richmond, Va., is a Super Bowl champion quarterback. Same goes for Seattle pitcher James Gillheeney, who played baseball with Wilson at N.C. State. “Just sitting back and thinking a few years back we were just hanging out. He used to come over to the house and just hang out. My roommate and myself would cut his hair every week,” Gillheeney said.


“Just sitting there watching him on that kind of stage and thinking about how he used to be one of the guys just hanging out watching TV or what have you, it was definitely a really cool feeling. Knowing somebody that has already accomplished that much in two years I couldn’t be happier for him and it couldn’t have hap-

pened to a better guy.” On Monday, Wilson’s past will be revisited as the Texas Rangers prospect makes a visit to their camp in Surprise, Ariz., that will be the buzz of the Cactus League. The attention on the Rangers was one thing when they selected Wilson in the Triple-A

portion of baseball’s draft at the winter meetings in December. It’s another when he makes the trip to Arizona a month and a day after leading the Seahawks to the first Super Bowl title in franchise history and becoming a championship quarterback in just his second season in the NFL. Don’t worry, Seahawks fans. The Rangers are not about to put Wilson into Monday’s game let him get buzzed by 90 mph fastballs even though he’ll be in uniform and in the dugout for the matchup with Cleveland. Wilson might take part in some of the Rangers’ pregame workout, but that’s it. “Our intentions are to bring him in and see if there’s anything he can say that may help anyone around here that has on a baseball uniform,” Texas manager Ron Washington said. “This guy is a winner. He has tremendous character. He has attitude and undoubtedly has a lot of commitment to what he does. That’s what we’re about and we just want him to feel comfortable.” For a while, it appeared Wilson’s best chance at being a professional athlete would

Yanks eager for more Tanaka Former Japanese star makes New York debut vs. Phillies, hurls two-scoreless innings The New York Times

well in the field. Tanaka allowed two singles and had three strikeouts, one of which came on his signature splitter. His straight fastball registered 92 to 94 mph, and he also threw a couple of impressive sliders and cutters. In fact, he threw all six of his pitches, and he listed them in English to reporters: four-seam fastball,

two-seam fastball, slider, splitter, curveball, changeup. Girardi had seen Tanaka throw batting practice, but other than watching videotape, he had not seen him in a game. “He got in the stretch, he gave up an 0-2 hit, and it didn’t fester. He just went back to work. I thought it was all good.”

Highlands earns split of doubleheader against RMAC rival Adams State The New Mexico Highlands University baseball team spilt a doubleheader with Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference opponent Adams State on Saturday in Alamosa, Colo. The Cowboys dropped the first game, 9-6, but rebounded and beat the Grizzlies

13-5 in the second. In the first game, NMHU jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the second inning, but Adams State scored four runs in the next frame to take the lead, which they did not give back. By the end of the third inning, the Grizzlies already had built a 9-3 lead.

The Cowboys (4-8 overall, 1-2 in RMAC) close out the four-game series with the Grizzlies on Sunday and then start a fourgame home series with Colorado State University-Pueblo on March 7. The New Mexican

He could throw harder than pretty much anybody on the team. He was fast. He was just a great athlete,” Hicks said. “He played everywhere on the field. He was a really good pitcher. He pitched for us a lot. He even caught a little bit, played all over the field. You could tell at that age he was going to be a really good athlete.” Hicks got a chance to face Wilson the pitcher when the duo were playing baseball in the ACC. Gillheeney said he always felt comfortable with Wilson playing behind him in the infield, even if he was always playing catch up because of his football obligations in the fall. “He was always kind of a step behind in baseball, not because of his ability but because he had to spend his time in the fall doing football while the rest of us were playing fall ball. I wouldn’t say he started from scratch in the spring but he was definitely still working to be at the level he wanted to play at,” Gillheeney said. “But he always found his way into the lineup, he always worked as hard as he could.”

Slump: Contract led to ‘bad situation’ Continued from Page D-1

By David Waldstein

TAMPA, Fla. — When Masahiro Tanaka took the mound at the Rakuten Golden Eagles’ stadium with a complete game on the line in the ninth inning, the public address system blared a song called “Ato Hitotsu” by the Funky Monkey Babys to inspire him. The song has been loosely translated to mean “only one more” — that is, one more for a victory. Tanaka said the song meant a lot to him, and vice versa: He is featured on the CD’s cover wearing his old Rakuten hat. On Saturday, he was touched that the New York Yankees played the song for him at George M. Steinbrenner Field. It played when he entered his first game as a Yankee, even if it was the fifth inning of a spring training game against the Philadelphia Phillies, not the final inning of a complete game. Based on what he showed Saturday in the Yankees’ 4-0 win, there will be plenty of time for the latter. Hearing the song helped Tanaka feel a little more at home — that and the fact that three Japanese television networks were broadcasting the game for their baseballhungry viewers. The game was shown live in Japan even though Tanaka did not throw a pitch until 4:15 a.m. Sunday, Japan time. Not even Tanaka expected his family and friends to watch his scoreless two-inning performance. “They are all asleep,” he said through his interpreter. But in Tampa, everyone was wide awake in anticipation of Tanaka’s first appearance in a game of any kind since the Yankees committed $175 million to sign him in January. What made the game even more compelling in Japan was that it also featured starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda, perhaps the most consistent Japanese pitcher in major league history, and Ichiro Suzuki, the veteran outfielder who has attained legendary status in Japan. There was so much focus on Tanaka and the two other Japanese stars that Derek Jeter became an afterthought. Jeter went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored, and he played

come on the baseball field. Because of concerns about his height, the quarterback/middle infielder jumped at his chance to play two seasons professionally in Colorado’s minor league system after being drafted by the Rockies. He played in 93 games over two seasons but never above the Class A level in 2010 and 2011. Even during Super Bowl week, Wilson was referencing his baseball past. “Everybody was telling me I was going to be a big league second baseman. I was the prototypical 5-11, 205-pound second baseman. I could run, I could hit, I could steal bases. I could do all those things,” Wilson said on Jan. 29. “I had this itch to play the game of football. I believed that I could go to the Super Bowl and win multiple Super Bowls and do all of those things.” Hicks and Wilson played on the same traveling baseball team in the Richmond area in their early teen years. Hicks noted at the time Wilson was the tallest player on the team. He was also the best player. “He was a specimen honestly.

resemblance is unmistakable. The younger Upton shook his head when asked if it surprised him that B.J. didn’t ask for his support when he dealt with hitting just .184 and being benched in his first year with the Braves. The seasonlong slump came after he signed a five-year, $75.25 million contract. “Nobody’s going to help you fix yourself,” Justin said. “People take that a little too far, I think. Until something clicks with you in your mind, things won’t go the right direction. You have to fix yourself before anyone else can.” OK, but surely B.J. talked to his parents, with whom he’s very close, about his problems. Nope. Not his mother and not even his father, Manny “Bossman” Upton, his namesake and the reason the man born Melvin Emanuel is known as “Bossman Junior” or simply B.J. “What could anyone really say to me? None of them had gone through what I had gone through last year,” he said. “Nobody could relate, so I dealt with it on my own.” The center fielder’s distaste at confiding in anyone about just how much his struggles bothered him didn’t stop scores of people from offering unsolicited advice. It seemed there was someone at every turn with a proposed solution to his woes. “And that’s the problem,” he said, “everybody wants to throw in their two cents all the time and you start trying to listen to everybody and before you know it, you’ve got 100 people in your head.” The 29-year-old, who was the second overall pick in the 2002 draft by Tampa Bay and made his major league debut at just 19, doesn’t fault those who reached out to him. But he believes at almost 30, he should be able to handle things alone. His contract was the big-

gest ever given to a free agent by the Braves, a fact that Upton said led to a “bad situation.” He was so busy striving to live up to the expectations put on him by such a huge deal that he let it affect his play. But lofty expectations aren’t anything new for Upton, who was touted as a five-tool, game-changing player when he was drafted out of high school. He became a key starter for Tampa Bay, hitting seven home runs in the postseason when the Rays reached the World Series in 2008, becoming the first player in franchise history to hit for the cycle a year later and stealing more than 40 bases in three consecutive seasons. Despite those accomplishments, he remained a prime target for criticism in part because he was never exactly what he was predicted to be as a teenager. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez is someone who is perfectly comfortable with not putting too much pressure on Upton. So what would he consider a successful season for Upton after his disastrous debut with the Braves? “Just a good, solid year,” Gonzalez said. “Something that he would have on the back of his baseball card, something that he’s done prior to last year. Those numbers are pretty good.” Indeed they are. In eight seasons with the Rays, he hit a combined .255 with a .336 on-base percentage, and piled up 232 stolen bases with 118 homers. When Upton discusses 2013, he does it with a dismissive tone, certain it was simply an aberration — his rock bottom he’s sure to rise from this season. “Last year was done a long time ago,” he said. “I’m just not really worried about anything. I don’t know if that’s a bad thing. I’m just like: ‘Whatever.’ ”


Tony Stewart bristles at health questions, hopes to rebound at Phoenix The Associated Press

AVONDALE, Ariz. — Tony Stewart came back from a broken right leg at the Daytona 500 still not fully healed, yet able to race. By the time he arrived at Phoenix International Raceway, he also was annoyed — at all the questions about his health. “I’ll be honest, I’ll be more happy when everybody quits asking me how I feel,” Stewart said. “I’m not 100 percent. I’m not going to be 100 percent

for a while.” The same could be said of his team after a disappointing start to the season at the Daytona 500 last weekend. Stewart crashed out of the exhibition Sprint Unlimited and struggled with engine issues at the Great American Race, finishing 35th. Danica Patrick was strong early, leading laps for the second straight year, but got tangled in a late-race crash and finished 40th. Kurt Busch and Kevin Harvick, the two newest members of Stewart-Haas

Racing, were in position for good finishes, but had troubles at the end of the race. Busch finished 21st and Harvick hit the pit-road wall head-on on the final crash of the race to finish 13th. Stewart and the rest of his team are hoping to bounce back quickly at Phoenix, particularly with a new championship format that makes it important to finish races. Busch will have the best starting position for SHR in Sunday’s race in 10th and Harvick is two rows back at 13th.

Stewart will start 20th and Patrick will go off 33rd. “Not that you’re not going to be aggressive, but you have to keep the mindset right now that you still have to finish the races,” said Harvick, the all-time leader in victories at PIR with nine, including four Sprint Cup victories. “But as you in that position (to win), you can start being a lot more aggressive with really anything. All you’re after at that point is winning races to try to gain more bonus point to protect yourself in the first

round of the Chase to get the cushion.” Sunday’s race on Phoenix’s oddshaped mile oval will cover 312 miles. With the sun shining, the drivers had good track conditions for their final practice session on Saturday. Rain is in the forecast for early Sunday, but is expected to taper off in time for the race. Brad Keselowski, the 2012 Sprint Cup champion, will start on the pole after setting a track record at 139.384 mph.

Federer edges Berdych for sixth title in Dubai By Sandra Harwitt

Roger Federer returns the ball to Tomas Berdych during the final match of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships on Saturday.

The Associated Press

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Roger Federer won a record sixth Dubai Championships — and 78th career title — by beating Tomas Berdych 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 in the final on Saturday. Federer, who maintains a home in Dubai, delighted a packed stadium of fans who seemed biased for the Swiss in back-to-back wins over Novak Djokovic in the semifinals and Berdych. “Things definitely went my way out here tonight,” Federer said. “I’ve had a lot of tough matches in the last year and a half, so it was nice to get a lucky break again.” The victory was hard fought as Federer lost the first serve and his serve in the second to trail 3-2. Federer’s win, his sixth here in the past 12 years, extends his record of winning at least one title a year to 14 consecutive years. This is Federer’s first tour-


nament victory since winning in Halle, his only title of 2013, last spring. Federer improved his record over Berdych to 12-6 with the win. The last time they played, however, Berdych beat Federer in the Dubai semifinals last year. “He’s the greatest player of all time, and he’ll never give up and give you anything for free,” Berdych said. “I knew that and thought I was ready for it, but my execution wasn’t good

enough to hold it to the end.” The loss ended Berdych’s longest winning streak of his career at 11 matches. In the first set, the fourthseeded Federer’s forehand looked shaky and he appeared a step slow. After exchanging early service breaks, the third-seeded Berdych snared the go-ahead break in the sixth game. On a second break point at 30-40, Federer netted a backhand to lose serve.

Killing: Runner has rocky past Continued from Page D-1 Now, the 27-year-old Olympian must fight allegations that, in a rage, he intentionally shot at girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp four times through a toilet door, killing her. Prosecutors allege that Pistorius then lied extensively about the shooting, throwing doubt on everything the world thought it knew about him. Pistorius’ life is up for debate, not just the events in the early hours of Valentine’s Day last year. Prosecutor Gerrie Nel called Pistorius a man “willing and ready to fire and kill” as the state charged him with premeditated murder. Prosecutors say there was “a measure of preparation” in the way he killed Steenkamp after the couple argued loudly at his home. Pistorius gives a totally different story, saying he was terrified in the mistaken belief that there was a dangerous intruder in his home about to hurt him and the woman he says he loved dearly. “I knew I had to protect Reeva and myself,” Pistorius says in an 11-page affidavit, his only testimony so far. She died in his arms, he says. The state’s account makes Pistorius out to be a cold and cal-

culating killer; his own description is of a disabled man on his stumps and afraid who made a terrible mistake. Which version is true? It is the question that will underline Pistorius’ entire trial. It’s a case where forensic and ballistic experts and criminal psychologists will feature, and where a toilet door, bullet trajectory, blood spatter, cellphone records and the debate over gun ownership and South Africa’s violent crime problem will play a part, all revolving around a famous figure. Large parts of the trial will be broadcast live from Courtroom GD in Pretoria’s high court building. Pistorius’ mindset and intention in the hours leading up to 3 a.m. Feb. 14, 2013, is what ultimately matters. What clues do we have from him? His life has been tumultuous and touched by tragedy before. Pistorius emerged from the hardship of his disability and the sudden death of his mother, the biggest influence on him, to become a role model for many. He was banned from competing against the able-bodied because of his carbon fiber running blades, but he got that overturned. He was a boundarybreaking athlete who tested the world’s preconceptions of

what disabled meant and did it with apparent humility and decency. There were flashes of something else though: A speedboat crash in early 2009 that left him in hospital with serious facial injuries amid allegations of drinking and reckless behavior. Later that year, Pistorius was arrested after a female guest at a party at his house made a complaint of assault against him. Charges weren’t pursued. Maybe most telling, two years ago, he was reportedly with friends in a car pulled over by traffic police and, after an altercation, he allegedly responded as they drove away by shooting his gun angrily out the sunroof. Prosecutors will add two counts relating to him firing a gun in public to his murder and illegal possession of ammunition charges at trial. One of them is believed to be that sunroof incident. Did Pistorius reach for his 9 mm pistol again when angry on Valentine’s Day, prosecutors will ask. Perhaps the Pistorius that walked to the bathroom of his upscale home with his gun in hand was someone between the two extremes offered by the prosecution and the defense.

Water supply risk and the election W

paint sans pain

ith respect to water policies, proposed resolutions or ordinances pass first through the appropriate committees (Water Conservation, Finance and Public Utilities), then city staff members make recommendations to the City Council and councilors vote on the proposals. (The mayor votes in case of a tie.) Because water issues are at or near the top of almost any list of citizen concerns, we should evaluate our candidates, among our other concerns and priorities, on their knowledge of our water supply system, its inherent risks, and their abilities to make critical decisions concerning water matters. It is worthwhile to review the risk factors of our four major water sources. The Buckman Road Water Treatment Plant serves the Buckman Direct Diversion project, which withdraws native Rio Grande water and San Juan-Chama Project water (the Upper Colorado River Basin water that constitutes about two-thirds of the BDD supply). Pre-determined, critical flow rates govern when diversion is activated, reduced or halted. And even when there is adequate water flow, ash from forest fires in the drainage area (such as occurred after the Las Conchas Fire) and high turbidity following storm events also impact diversion from the Rio Grande and may result in the use of alternate water sources. The nearby Buckman Well Field is a critical water source for Santa Fe. Although one of the original objectives of the BDD was to “rest” the aquifers, the wells are pumped when the diversion is offline or when warmer water is required for blending to raise the temperature of surface water entering the distribution system. This groundwater is much higher in hardness and dissolved mineral content than surface water, and this difference is often noticeable to subscribers. Rain and snowmelt source the Santa Fe Watershed, which is drained by the Santa Fe River. This surface water flows into McClure Reservoir and Nichols Reservoir (which is currently undergoing scheduled repairs) and is treated at the Canyon Road Water Treatment Plant. As a result of decreased precipitation and warmer-than-normal temperatures, the relatively dry and heavily forested watershed is prone to fire. If fires were to occur, heavy runoff from storm events could result in ash and debris entering the

e’ve all been there. You decide to paint a room, and weeks later, your walls are a crazy quilt of paint swatches. You’ve flipped through rooms on Houzz and Pinterest and virtually painted your room online. You’ve asked your friends and your plumber for their opinions. You are still afraid to make the wrong choice. It’s OK. Consumers typically try three to five paint colors before deciding on their final selection, according to Erika Woelfel, Behr’s director of color marketing. Of course, many try even more. Perhaps everyone should accept the fact that painting a room is sort of like becoming an artist. Painting is a process, whether you are agonizing over the color selec-

tion or actually brushing the paint on the walls. “You are the artist of your own environment,” says Barbara Richardson, color marketing manager for Glidden Paint. “You shouldn’t be afraid to experiment and then adjust and tweak.” Nervous homeowners can find help from designers, architects and color consultants, as well as apps.

water storage reservoirs, thereby increasing handling and treatment costs. Burned forests could also increase the risk of flooding downstream. Fortunately, the Forest Service has plans to continue its prescribed burns and thinning operations in the Santa Fe National Forest. Our fourth active water source is the City Well Field, which is located along the Santa Fe River. These wells are subject to changes in the regional aquifer due to pumping and to the same risks as the Buckman wells with respect to the uncertainty of aquifer recharge. The Water Division has the luxury of juggling our multiple water sources as conditions change. We need to ensure that an adequate water portfolio is available and that our elected officials are planning ahead to acquire additional water sources. Projects such as the Buckman Direct Diversion required decades of planning and lead time. And then there are the issues of funding.

In Colorado, starting over in a fire-resistant house By Sandy Keenan The New York Times

Evan Fry is known for the quirky, irreverent commercials he creates for companies like Volkswagen, HarleyDavidson and Burger King in his role as an advertising executive. One of the wackiest, directed by Spike Jonze, involved the gleeful annihilation of a Gap store by its employees — Fry’s answer to the question of how an established brand should announce its reinvention. Similar themes of destruction and renewal have figured in his own life in recent years, but in a less entertaining way. In 2010, the Fourmile Canyon Fire

in Colorado destroyed about 168 homes here over Labor Day weekend, including his. “The fire ripped up these canyons so fast,” Fry, 43, said. His wife, Melissa Fry, 40, added, “We lost everything.” She had just moved in a couple of weeks before, and the two had yet to make any major decisions, like whether to marry. But losing a 3,500-square-foot house in a fire has a way of expediting things. The most immediate decision was easy: They were determined to stay in the area.

And his girlfriend, an Ashtanga yoga instructor, liked being in a place where nearly everyone practices yoga. (As she jokes, 90 percent of the residents identify as yogis.) But they struggled over how to rebuild, finally selling the old lot and spending $150,000 on about 8 acres

on a much higher perch that had also been ravaged during the fire, seven miles above downtown. They will be the first to tell you that they dreamed too big in the beginning. Their original plans were double the size of the house they eventually built, and the bids came in at more than double their budget of $800,000,

Paint: Invest in good quality brush Continued from Page E-1 five paint experts with their five best painting tips.

Color selection Zoe Kyriacos is an architectural color consultant. She advises clients of her Takoma Park, Md., firm, Colors by Zoe, on paint colors for interiors and exteriors. Here are some of her pointers. Consider the existing items in your room. Flooring, rugs, artwork and upholstery will suggest a color direction. Try to pull together these elements in your color choice. If your home is not furnished, make the paint color the last thing you choose; there are thousands of colors to choose from but maybe only one rug that you really love. Take your paint samples home. Colors you select in the Home Depot aisle will look different under the lighting conditions in your home. Don’t examine a paint sample against a white wall. Color is affected by what surrounds it, and putting a sample on a white wall will cause it to appear darker than it really is. This results in many people making a choice that is too light. Put the paint sample against a sofa, wood furniture or flooring for a better perspective. Take into account how color flows from room to room. If you have a modern house with an open floor plan, it’s important to use one wall color throughout the main floor. Add accent colors in a few carefully considered areas. Stick with white trim in most cases. Try several whites before you make a final selection. Benjamin Moore’s Simply White works well with cooler shades such as blue, gray, purple and pink. Warmer wall colors, such as yellow or green, call for a softer white, such as Benjamin Moore’s Mayonnaise.

Room colors Washington designer Elizabeth Hague has been known for her calm and classic interiors since she opened

her firm in 1991. She shared her go-to paint colors for five different rooms and the reasons why she likes them. Living room: Benjamin Moore Soft Chamois. This pleasant clay color is a neutral backdrop for textiles, furniture and accents. Dining room: Farrow & Ball Cornforth White. This dark, warm gray has a lot of pigment in it, which makes it rich and beautiful in candlelight. Kitchen: Farrow & Ball Blackened. This chalky blue serves as a nice contrast to natural stone countertops, cabinets and polished-nickel fixtures. Bedroom: Pratt & Lambert Smoke Ring. Choose a beautiful color to wake up in, such as this periwinkle bluegray. It’s the color of sky on a clear day. Bath: Pratt & Lambert Full Moon. To go with natural stone flooring and countertops and polished nickel fixtures, choose a shade with warm graygreen tones, such as this off-white.

The right white Christian Zapatka is a Washington architect who specializes in design work that incorporates both architecture and interiors. He has a lot of experience choosing white paints. Here are some of his favorites. Walls in traditional homes: Benjamin Moore China Whit.e This white has a soft, warm tone, with a faint

“greige” background. Trim in traditional homes: Benjamin Moore White Dove. Ideal for all types of woodwork, this shade is compatible with almost any wall color. It has a clean white quality while keeping a warm tone. Walls and trim in modern homes: Benjamin Moore Super White. For a flawless look with no trace of yellow or gray, this is it. It’s as pure white as you can get, so it’s the best choice for a modern interior. For a house where all rooms are painted white: Farrow & Ball’s Strong White. This is a warm white without any yellow cast, which makes it great as a totally neutral background. Bookcases and cabinetry: Farrow & Ball’s All White. Bookcases and built-ins look great when painted this crisp, bright white. It sets off the wall color around it.

Special finishes Denise Sabia, a decorator from Ambler, Pa., writes about paint on her blog, the Painted Home ( She is an expert at giving flea market furniture and accessories a fresh look, often with specialty finishes. We asked her to discuss some of these popular products. Chalkboard: There are lots of possible applications for chalkboard paint, and it makes a great conversation piece, whether on drinking glasses, bedroom walls, tabletops or drawer fronts. It’s great in the kitchen for grocery lists. Favorite brand: Rust-Oleum Specialty Chalk Board. Chalk: Chalk-finish paint (not to be confused with chalkboard paint) dries quickly and adheres to almost anything. This creates a chalky finish that sands down to a super smooth surface. There is also limited prep work besides cleaning the piece with a paper towel and Simple Green spray. Favorite brand: Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Metallic: Metallic paint is a bold look that should be used sparingly. Use it as an accent on the edges of furniture or on accessories to add a

little shimmer. Favorite brand: Martha Stewart Living Metallic Paint. Milk: Milk paint is the perfect solution if you are looking for the chipped, timeworn look. It can flake off furniture when it dries to appear vintage. Favorite brand: Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint. Mirror: There is a lot of interest these days in mirror-finish spray for home accessories. You can apply it on Mason jars or other accessories to create a sort of mercury glass look. It adds a layer of instant charm. Favorite brand: Krylon Looking Glass MirrorLike Paint.

DIY Richardson, the color marketing manager for Glidden Paint, helps consumers choose and apply paint wisely. Here are her tips on how to avoid stress while painting: Pour paint into a smaller container. It’s more practical to carry around the paint you need in something smaller and lighter than an unwieldy gallon can. You can use a container you have on hand, or buy a small container with a handle at many paint stores. This is particularly helpful when working on a ladder. Carry a wet cloth. If you drop

paint on something, you can quickly wipe it off without having to stop and gather cleaning materials. Wear an apron. A canvas painting apron or a durable cook’s apron with pockets provides storage for all the things you’ll want to have around you: an extra paintbrush, your phone or that little wet cloth for spills. Over time, the apron becomes a sort of color library of your home, because splashes of paint from each project will inevitably end up on it. Invest in a good quality brush. If you buy an inexpensive brush, you’ll be annoyed at how much time you’ll have to spend picking bristles out of your paint job. Ask for a recommendation at your hardware store or paint shop; Wooster brushes are often used by pros. If you’re using a water-based paint, clean your brush by wiping it with a newspaper or rag and then soaking in lightly soapy water. Consider painting trim and ceiling the same color as your walls. If you choose a neutral color for a main room of the house, painting the trim and ceiling the same color can create a unified look. This is especially helpful if you are going for a more modern or contemporary feel. Unifying everything eliminates worry about the lines.

GE Appliances have sound of music Forget the ding, firm adds soundtracks to Monogram appliances By Jura Koncius The Washington Post

The sounds of your kitchen can be very annoying: the beep of the fridge when you don’t fully close the door, the shrill alarm on a microwave timer, the buzz of the oven when it’s preheated. Designers at GE are trying to make the kitchen a friendlier place. The company’s upcoming Monogram dishwasher will be the first appliance to feature its own special soundtrack; you’ll be notified with a classy piano number when your plates and glasses are ready to unload. “We wanted something less

machinelike and more social to fit in today’s open-plan kitchen,” says Lou Lenzi, director of industrial design for GE Appliances. He says the goal is to get a “less industrial aesthetic” for appliances. “We wanted the sounds to blend in and be harmonious, replacing the buzzing and other jarring mechanical sounds.” Lenzi and his team spent two years developing sonic palettes for each of the GE four appliance brands: Artistry, GE, Cafe and Monogram. According to Julie Wood, spokeswoman for GE Appliances, the company worked with a composer on long-form instrumental soundtracks for each brand. “Then the designers created interaction sounds — or snippets — from the long-form piece for actions such as power-on, poweroff and end-of-cycle,” Wood says. Here’s the breakdown:

Monogram, GE’s luxury appliance brand, features sophisticated piano music plus plucked strings and a harp. Artistry, the entry-level brand targeted towards millennials, plays a garage band-style mix with lots of guitar. GE, the flagship brand, has upbeat brass and swelling wind instruments (think Aaron Copland).
