Supreme Court to decide if it will take on N.M. case

Couple maintain they did not violate law when they refused to photograph same-sex commitment ceremony By Robert Barnes

The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — Arizona recently showed the rest of the nation how difficult it can be to balance the religious rights of some with the guarantees all have to be treated equally and protected from discrimination. The Supreme Court will decide this month whether that is an effort it is ready to undertake. The case awaiting the justices’ action is one that is inevitably cited when legislators say new laws are needed to protect those who say their religious beliefs would be offended by having to “endorse” same-sex marriage. It involves a New Mexico couple, Elaine and Jonathan Huguenin, whose company, Elane Photography, refused to be the official photographer for the 2007 commitment ceremony of a gay couple, Vanessa Willock and Misti Collinsworth. The Huguenins, asking the Supreme Court to reverse a lower-court decision, say they would “gladly serve gays and lesbians” — taking portraits, for instance — but do not want to photograph marriage or commitment ceremonies. That would “require them to create expression conveying messages that conflict with their religious beliefs.” The state human rights commission found that the Huguenins violated the state’s public accommodations law, the New Mexico Human Rights Act, and the New Mexico Supreme Court unanimously upheld the decision. “When Elane Photography refused to photograph a samesex commitment ceremony, it violated the NMHRA in the same way as if it had refused to photograph a wedding

SFCC will screen ‘Salt of the Earth’ to commemorate 60th anniversary By Russell Contreras The Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE — A 1954 movie about a real-life miners’ strike that was blacklisted during the Red Scare is being celebrated in New Mexico as the 60th anniversary of the film approaches. Salt of the Earth was blacklisted in the U.S. during Cold War retribution against communist filmmakers and gained an underground following more than a decade later when it was finally shown. The story was told through the eyes of a female character named Esperanza as Mexican American miners barred by federal law from striking against a zinc company were replaced on the picket lines by their wives.

A couple of privately financed City Council candidates in District 2 spent the final days before Santa Fe’s municipal election — and portions of their modest campaign war chests — battering opponents with attack ads, including one that claims women elected to office “are more honorable and ethical” than men. Meanwhile, a final pre-election round of required campaign finance reports filed with the City Clerk’s Office reflected an additional

$7,745 in spending by the independent expenditure nonprofit Working America in support of mayoral candidate Javier Gonzales. The money was spent to bring paid canvassers from Albuquerque to Santa Fe, including the cost of rental vans and gasoline. Voters in the southeast-side District 2 received mailers over the weekend with the headline “Bad boys” splashed in red across the top. These were sent out by council candidate Mary Bonney, the only woman in a race that also includes Joseph Maestas, Rad Acton, Joe Arellano and Jeff Green.

NATION&WORLD Energy costs boost consumer spending in Jan. The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Americans spent more in January, but the increase came from a surge in spending on heating bills during the harsh winter. Spending in areas such as autos and clothing declined. Spending rose 0.4 percent in January after a 0.1 percent gain in December the Commerce Department said Monday. The December figure was revised down from a 0.4 percent increase. Income grew 0.3 percent in January after no increase in December. The overall spending increase in January reflected a 0.8 percent jump in spending on services, the effect of higher heating bills. It was the biggest increase in spending on services since October 2001. Spending on durable goods such as autos fell 0.3 percent. And spending on nondurable goods, which covers things like clothing and food, dropped 0.7 percent. “Spending looks great but is not,” said Ian Shepherdson, who noted the jump in temporary weather-related energy demand. Without an 11.3 percent jump in spending on utility bills, Shepherdson said consumer spending would have been close to flat. Consumer spending is closely watched because it drives 70 percent of economic activity. Once warmer weather arrives, many analysts expect a burst of spending caused by pent-up demand from consumers who put off spending.

11 die in Islamabad during terror attack ISLAMABAD — Gunmen stormed Pakistan’s main court complex in Islamabad on Monday, cutting down fleeing lawyers before blowing themselves up in a rampage that killed 11 people. It was the worst terror attack in years in the capital, which has largely been spared the violence raging in many parts of the country. The bloodshed undermined the government’s efforts to negotiate a peace deal with the main militant group, the Pakistani Taliban, just days after the organization announced a one-month cease-fire for the talks. The Pakistani Taliban denied responsibility for the attack. But the violence underscored the difficulty of negotiations when numerous militant groups are operating in Pakistan. And it raised questions of whether the Taliban can control some of their factions that may oppose talks. The attack stunned the capital, a normally quiet city of wide, treelined boulevards that is home to diplomats, generals, aid workers and government officials. It was the

deadliest attack in Islamabad since a 2008 truck bombing at the Marriott Hotel killed 54 people. In an assault that lasted roughly 20 minutes, gunmen swarmed through the narrow alleys between the complex’s buildings, hurling grenades and firing automatic weapons wildly, witnesses said. Gunmen broke through a door to one judge’s chambers and shot him to death, while other victims were mowed down in the cafeteria. In the confusion afterward, it was unclear how many attackers were involved and whether any escaped.

High court ponders death penalty, IQ WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court appeared likely Monday to say that states can’t rely on intelligence test scores alone in borderline cases to determine that a death row inmate is mentally able and thus eligible to be executed. The justices heard arguments on a snowy morning in a challenge from a Florida inmate who says there is ample evidence to show that he is mentally disabled and protected from being put to death, even though most of his IQ scores have topped 70. That score is the widely accepted as a marker of mental disability, but medical professionals say that test results have a margin of error and in any case are just one factor in determining mental disability. The decisive vote appears to belong to Justice Anthony Kennedy and he repeatedly questioned the state’s argument for a rigid cutoff. “Your rule prevents us from getting a better understanding of whether the IQ score is accurate or not,” Kennedy said. The case centers on how authorities determine who is eligible to be put to death, 12 years after the justices prohibited the execution of the mentally disabled. The Florida Supreme Court has ruled that the state law regarding executions and mental disability has no wiggle room if an inmate tests above 70.

Next of kin notified in fighter jet crash FALLON, Nev. — Next of kin have been notified of the death of a U.S. military pilot killed in a fighter jet crash during a Nevada training exercise, but the victim’s name is being withheld pending a formal announcement by the pilot’s parent command. Naval Air Force spokeswoman Lt. Reagan Lauritzen confirmed Monday that officials reached the family of the pilot who crashed Saturday on a training range east of Naval Air Station Fallon. Lauritzen says the F/A-18C was a Marine jet on loan to the Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center, not one of the Navy’s Hornets as initially reported.

Snow, frigid temps extend into March WASHINGTON — On the latest snow day in a winter full of them, residents of parts of the South, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast were coping with several inches of snow on top of a layer of slush. Temperatures were expected to dip into the single digits along the Eastern Seaboard on Monday night. That doesn’t usually happen after March 1. If the forecast holds, it would be only the third single-digit day after March 1 in the recorded history of the nation’s capital — and the previous two were in 1872 and 1873, according to the National Weather Service.

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. — A freshwater channel that separates Michigan’s upper and lower peninsulas is a premier Midwestern tourist attraction and a photographer’s delight, offering spectacular vistas of two Great Lakes, several islands and one of the world’s longest suspension bridges. But nowadays the Straits of Mackinac is drawing attention for something that is out of sight and usually out of mind, and which some consider a symbol of the dangers lurking in the nation’s sprawling web of buried oil and natural gas pipelines. Stretched across the bottom of the waterway at depths reaching 270 feet are two 20-inch pipes that carry nearly 23 million gallons of crude oil daily. They are part of the 1,900-mile Lakehead network, which originates in North Dakota near the Canadian border. A segment known as Line 5 slices through northern Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula before ducking beneath the Straits of Mackinac and winding up in Sarnia, Ontario. The pipes were laid in 1953. They’ve never leaked, according to the system’s owner, Enbridge Energy Partners LP, which says the lines are in good shape and pose no threat. But a growing chorus of activists and members of Congress is demanding closer scrutiny as stepped-up production in North Dakota’s Bakken region and Canada’s Alberta tar sands boosts the amount of oil coursing through pipelines crossing the nation’s heartland.

CHICAGO — Most people who abuse addictive prescription painkillers get them for free from friends or relatives, while drug dealers are a relatively uncommon source for those at highest risk for deadly overdoses, a government study found. People who abuse the most frequently often doctor-shop; more than 1 in 4 who used these drugs almost daily said they had been prescribed by one or more physicians. Almost as many said they got them for free from friends or relatives; only 15 percent of the most frequent abusers said they bought the drugs from dealers or other strangers. Those abusers “are probably using at much greater volumes and simply asking a friend for a pill now and then is not going to be sufficient,” said Dr. Leonard Paulozzi, a researcher at the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. According to the study, two-thirds of abusers said they used the drugs infrequently and well over half of these users said they got them free from friends or relatives. Paulozzi and CDC colleagues analyzed four years of nationwide health surveys on nonmedical use of pain relievers including oxycodone and hydrocodone. These include the brand-name pills OxyContin and Vicodin, in a family of drugs called opioids — chemically similar to opium. The study was published online Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine. Paulozzi said overall prevalence of nonmedical use of prescription opioid painkillers has held steady in recent years, at about 12 million, or 1 in 20 people aged 12 and older. But previous CDC data show overdose deaths involving these drugs more than tripled from 1999 to 2010, with more than 16,000 deaths that year. Overdose deaths that involved heroin and cocaine totaled less than 8,000, and deaths that involved often-abused prescription drugs that include anti-anxiety medication totaled about 6,500. A separate study in the same journal presents Tennessee — among states hardest hit by prescription drug abuse — as a snapshot of the problem. From 2007 through 2011, one-third of Tennessee’s population filled an opioid prescription each year, the study found. Nearly 8 percent had used more than four prescribers and these abusers were more than six times more likely to have fatal overdoses. The larger nationwide study included data from annual government health surveys for 2008-11 that included questions about use of these powerful painkillers. cate whether friends and relatives who offered free drugs shared their own prescriptions or had obtained the medication in some other way. The new data suggest a need to strengthen messages to doctors to be on the watch for signs of prescription misuse, Paulozzi said.

Russian forces expand control of Crimea

Nerves frayed as alleged deadline for Ukraine to capitulate comes, goes By William Booth and Will Englund The Washington Post

SEVASTOPOL, Ukraine — The embattled government in Kiev said Monday night that Russian forces had dramatically escalated the standoff between the two nations by giving Ukraine’s army and navy in Crimea a blunt ultimatum: Pledge allegiance to the region’s new pro-Russia leadership or be forced by Russia to submit. A spokesman for the Russian Black Sea Fleet, which is berthed in the Crimean port of Sevastopol, denied that a threat had been made, and the Russian Defense Ministry called the accusation “utter nonsense.” But as Russian troops and warships surrounded Ukrainian security installations throughout the autonomous Crimean Peninsula, it was clear that Ukrainian forces believed they faced an imminent threat even though no shot had been fired. A Ukrainian Defense Ministry official alleged that Russia’s Black Sea Fleet

commander had set a deadline of 5 a.m. Tuesday — 10 p.m. Monday Eastern time — for Ukrainian forces to capitulate, according to the Interfax-Ukrainian news agency. There were no immediate reports of activity after the deadline passed. The stepped-up Russian troop movements came two days after Russia’s parliament approved the use of force to protect the country’s citizens and military sites in Crimea, a region with deep ties to Russia. The actions on Monday triggered a cascade of condemnation from European and American officials, who vowed that Russia would face consequences if it did not pull back its soldiers. President Barack Obama said Moscow was “on the wrong side of history,” and threatened “a whole series of steps — economic, diplomatic” — to isolate Russia and “have a negative impact on its economy and its standing in the world.” Here in the deep-water harbor at Sevastopol, a Ukrainian naval command ship was confronted Monday evening by four tugboats flying Russian colors and was boxed in by a Russian minesweeper. Other Russian warships appeared at the mouth of the harbor to block an escape to the sea. A nearby Ukrainian naval sta-

tion flew a Russian flag. As the anxious wives of officers on the Ukrainian ship watched from shore, its crew rushed about in what appeared to be an attempt to repel boarders. The sailors — who carried side arms and military assault rifles — fixed mattresses to the railings, uncoiled fire hoses and brought firefighting equipment on deck. On Monday night, the Russian Black Sea Fleet ordered the crew members to lay down their arms and leave the ships, according to the UNIAN news agency, quoting a Ukrainian military source. Ukrainian officials expressed fears that the tensions could lead to violence overnight, which could give Russia reason to justify military action. “Provocations with killing of three to four Russian soldiers are planned on the territory of Crimea tonight,” said Deputy Interior Minister Mykola Velichkovych, the ministry’s press service reported. Speaking to the Russians, Velichkovych said: “We call on you to come to your senses. We call on you to stop.” Ukraine’s acting president, Oleksandr Turchynov, said Monday that he had been in communication with Ukraine’s military commanders in Crimea and that they assured him they would not yield to the Russians, according to the UNN news agency of Ukraine.

Western diplomats pressed Russia to pull back. In an interview with the BBC, British Foreign Secretary William Hague, who was in Kiev, said the Russian intervention in Crimea has produced “a very tense and dangerous situation” that amounts to Europe’s “biggest crisis” in the 21st century. “The world cannot just allow this to happen,” said Hague, whose American counterpart, Secretary of State John Kerry, was due in Kiev on Tuesday. French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said the European Union would have an emergency summit Thursday and take action against Russia if it has not sent troops back to their barracks in Crimea by then. But the Western threats appeared to have made little impact on Russia by Monday night. Russian forces, already in control of much of Crimea, took possession of a ferry terminal in Kerch, in the eastern part of the peninsula just across a strait from Russian territory, according to reports from the area. The terminal serves as a departure point for many ships headed to Russia and could be used to send more Russian troops into Crimea. Ukrainian news media reported

that a representative of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet also called on members of Ukraine’s Aviation Brigade at an air base in Belbek to denounce the Ukrainian government’s authority and swear allegiance to the new Crimean government. By nightfall, the Ukrainian aviators were still on their base. In the capital, Ukraine’s interim prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, urged the West to provide political and economic support as the Kiev stock market dropped a record 12 percent and the Ukrainian hryvnia fell to new lows against the dollar and euro. The crisis also caused the Moscow market to fall 10 percent and the Russian ruble to dive. Yatsenyuk stressed that Crimea remained part of Ukraine, but he conceded that there were “for today, no military options on the table.” Obama administration officials said Russia now has 6,000 troops in Crimea. Ukraine’s ambassador to the United Nations said Monday that 16,000 additional Russian troops had been deployed to Crimea in the past six days. Military experts estimate that the size of the Ukrainian military in Crimea is about 30,000, but many of those are support staff.

Top Russians face U.S. sanctions GuaranteedLowest

Obama administration, Congress prepared to take action; Europeans set to follow suit By Peter Baker

The New York Times

WASHINGTON — The United States prepared Monday to impose sanctions on high-level Russian officials involved in the military occupation of Crimea, as the escalating crisis in Ukraine sparked turmoil in global markets, pounding the Russian ruble and driving up energy prices. The Obama administration suspended military ties to Russia, including exercises, port visits and planning meetings, just a day after calling off trade talks. If Moscow does not reverse course, officials said they will ban visas and freeze assets of select Russian officials in the chain of command as well as target state-run financial institutions. Congressional leaders signaled that they would follow with sanctions of their own, plus quickly approve economic aid for the fragile new pro-Western government in Ukraine and follow with sanctions of their own. The besieged Kiev government said Monday that the Russians had deployed 16,000 troops in the region over the past week and had demanded that Ukrainian forces there surrender within hours or face armed assault. While Russia denied it had issued ultimatums, it was clearly moving to strengthen its grip on Crimea, the largely Russian-speaking peninsula in southern Ukraine where Moscow has long maintained a military base. In response to the Russian moves, European leaders have indicated Monday that they would go along with limited action like suspending unrelated talks with Moscow and halting arms sales, but they have resisted more sweeping efforts to curb

commercial activity and investment in Russia. German officials emphasized the need for diplomacy, while Dutch diplomats ruled out sanctions for now. A British government document photographed by a journalist said the government of Prime Minister David Cameron would not support trade sanctions or block Russian money from the British market. Without European backing, U.S. officials worry that economic sanctions might not carry enough bite to persuade President Vladimir Putin to reverse course in Ukraine. By itself, the United States is not even among Russia’s top 10 trading partners, with no more than $40 billion in exports and imports exchanged between the two each year. By contrast, Europe does about $340 billion in business with Russia, giving it far more potential clout, but also exposing it to far more potential risk. “It’s particularly important for the U.S. to bring Europe along,” said Julianne Smith, a former national security aide to Vice President Joe Biden. “To the extent the United States tries to put economic pressure on Russian industry, they won’t feel the impact as much as they would if we had Europe standing with us. That’s easier said than done.” Even without taking action, Western officials hoped the immediate and unscripted reaction of world markets would give Moscow pause. Russia’s benchmark stock index dropped 9.4 percent and the ruble fell to a record low against the dollar. The Russian central bank took the extraordinary step of raising interest rates by 1.5 percentage points, spending an estimated $20 billion to support the currency.

In his first public comments on the confrontation in three days, President Barack Obama said Monday that he was focused on assembling an economic aid package to shore up the Ukrainian government and asked that Congress make it “the first order of business,” drawing quick endorsements on Capitol Hill. “What we are also indicating to the Russians,” Obama added, “is that if, in fact, they continue on the current trajectory that they’re on, that we are examining a whole series of steps — economic, diplomatic — that will isolate Russia and will have a negative impact on Russia’s economy and its standing in the world. It is likely that we will

put those in place, and we are preparing that right now.” Russia responded that it was only protecting its interests and those of Russians in Ukraine. Meeting in Brussels, European Union foreign ministers called on Moscow to return its troops to their bases and threatened to freeze visa liberalization and economic cooperation talks and skip a Group of 8 summit meeting to be hosted by Russia in June. Heads of the European Union governments will meet in emergency session on Thursday to discuss the measures. But the Europeans made clear they are not yet willing to go as far as the United States in terms of economic strictures at this point.

A Message from Bill Dimas

I want to take this opportunity to share with you my concerns regarding the mayoral race and the conduct by one of my opponents. All three of us – Javier, Patti and myself – agreed to finance our campaigns under the city’s Public Financing process whereby there is a “level playing field” for the candidates using this approach. Unfortunately, special interest PAC’s have decided to get involved in this election. By doing so, they have violated the spirit and intent of the Public Financing process. These PAC’s have tainted the process and their candidate, putting both Patti and myself at a great disadvantage. One would think that the PAC’s would cease and desist as requested by their candidate, but they continue to pour money into the election by financing direct mail communications, polling, paid staff, etc. I am of the opinion that Santa Feans oppose this blatant circumvention of what was supposed to ensure a fair and honest election process. Apparently, the PAC’s and their candidate believe that the end justifies the means. I am proud to tell you that I have not had any ethics complaints either during this campaign nor when I served as your Magistrate Judge. Instead of attending the various forums, I have taken my campaign directly to the people. My message to you is simple: BACK TO BASICS! I have published in this newspaper (every Sunday) the various initiatives I hope to implement if I am elected as your Mayor. They include: • • • • • • • •

Crime Deterrence Programs Take Drugs Off Our Street Programs The Veteran’s Hiring Initiatives Workforce Housing Program for Teachers, Nurses, Police Officers & Firefighters A Business Friendly City Hall Tax Incentives for New Businesses No Increase in the Gross Receipts Tax Tighten Our Belt at City Hall; Cut Waste

“Bringing Our Community Together” My campaign is staffed by 100% volunteers. No paid staff. No high priced consultants. As a result, I am pleased to report that our campaign will be returning any remaining publicly financed campaign funds back to you, the taxpayer.

I hope you will join our effort to move Santa Fe forward by voting for me on March 4th. Thank you! Together, We Do Make A Difference Santa Fe! Campaign Headquarters: 428-7542 or 428-7527

Races: Final spending Polls: Clerk’s office can answer questions figures due in 2 weeks Continued from Page A-1

Continued from Page A-1 Bonney bashed Maestas and Acton in the literature, which included a bullet-pointed list of virtues women bring to elected office, punctuated by a quote attributed to “Margret” (sic) Thatcher: “If you want something said ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman.” It emphasized what it says was a scathing financial audit and environmental violations involving Española city government during Maestas’ tenure as mayor there, and it claimed he has a history of campaign finance violations, including one complaint that was upheld in the current election. Maestas was attacked for the same things on a website — www.joseph — launched by opponent Green. Maestas said he inherited Española’s financial and environmental woes and that he tried to fix them. He said the vitriolic reactions of his opponents signal that they’re worried because he’s a front-runner in the race. “I think these are just some final acts of desperation through these false attacks that have no place in Santa Fe politics,” Maestas said. “This is the nature of politics, but never did I imagine that it would devolve so badly into these baseless attacks.” In her mailer, Bonney, a Canyon Road art gallery owner, painted Acton, an architect, as an elitist and criticized his opposition to construction of a tall gymnasium at Atalaya Elementary School, which ultimately was redesigned in response to neighborhood complaints. “He said NO to the public schools and YES to a few wealthy neighbors who complained,” the campaign literature said. Acton said in an email that Bonney’s strategy “represents a dangerous propensity for negative hyperbole in someone purporting to be fit for public service.” Bonney said she owed it to voters to inform them about her opponents. “With our last mailer to voters, we decided that if we didn’t share these facts about Joseph Maestas and Rad Acton, we would be doing a disservice to the thoughtful people that take the time to vote on Election Day,” Bonney wrote in an email to The New Mexican. Besides Bonney’s criticisms of Maestas and Acton, the mailer touted reasons to elect women instead of men to public office. It said women “are more responsive to constituents,” “more focused on cooperation, less on hierarchy” and “are committed to improving the future for children.” On Monday, the city clerk released the final campaign finance reports before Tuesday’s election, spanning the period from Feb. 25 through Sunday. Bonney did not qualify for public financing. She has supplied nearly $2,500 of the approximately $6,400 raised by her campaign. She spent $2,200 on the fliers attacking her opponents. Green, who also failed to qualify for public campaign financing, reported paying himself $27.15 to reimburse expenses associated with his website attacking Maestas. Website registration records show it was purchased in September. Green says he delayed reporting the expenditure because he only recently activated the website. His campaign has raised a total of $462. In the mayor’s race, the labor-centric political action committee Santa Fe Working Families has pumped $30,000 into supporting Gonzales, who is using public funds for his own campaign and disavows any connection with outside groups, including another entity called Working America, which has invested $27,810 in support of him. The Progressive Santa Fe PAC has spent $3,257 to back Gonzales. Walt Borton, campaign manager for mayoral candidate Patti Bushee, said the outside money behind Gonzales bucks the spirit of public financing, which Santa Fe adopted to keep big-money interests out of local politics. “I’ve asked them to step down and not be a part of this campaign,” Gonzales said, referring to the outside money groups supporting him. “They are speaking to their constituencies. They don’t speak for me.” Gonzales said he supports publicly financed local elec-

tions so candidates can spend more time with voters than with donors, and he vowed that if he is elected mayor he would push for disincentives aimed at curbing outside spending “to create a more equal playing field for all candidates.” Gonzales and his opponents, City Councilors Bushee and Bill Dimas, all qualified for public financing and had $60,000 each to spend on their campaigns. Gonzales has reported spending $57,677, Bushee $56,454 and Dimas $53,051. Campaigns have two weeks after the election to disclose any spending that hasn’t been reported to date.

Tobias Wolff, a University of Pennsylvania law professor representing Willock, points out in his brief that the Huguenins acknowledge that courts are not split on the questions they raise, normally a prerequisite for Supreme Court action. He said the issue is a simple one: “Whatever service you provide, you must not discriminate against customers when you engage in public commerce.” Of course Elaine Huguenin is creative; otherwise, she wouldn’t be able to charge a fee for her service. But when a company sells its goods to the public, “it is not a private actor engaged in the expression of its own message,” Wolff writes. “Customers do not pay for the privilege of facilitating the company’s message. Customers pay to have their own event memorialized.” The New Mexico Supreme Court agreed. It said the Huguenins could take any pictures they liked and offer them for sale. But once the company put itself out for hire, it could not discriminate in deciding which customers it would serve. Lorence said recent attempts by Arizona and other states to shield religious objectors have drawn more attention to


the case. “Suddenly, everyone knows about the New Mexico photographer,” he said. But Wolff argues in his brief that the issues raised in recent legislative efforts — how far constitutional protections on the exercise of religion extend — are not raised in Elane Photography v. Willock. He notes that not a single commissioner or judge has sided with the Huguenins. But one New Mexico justice, Richard Bosson, saw the difficulty of the balancing. The Huguenins, he wrote in a concurring opinion, “now are compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives. Though the rule of law requires it, the result is sobering.” Nonetheless, he added, in the “focused world of the marketplace, of commerce, of public accommodation, the Huguenins have to channel their conduct, not their beliefs, so as to leave space for other Americans who believe something different. … In short, I would say to the Huguenins, with the utmost respect: it is the price of citizenship.”

Continued from Page A-1 It became a feminist and Chicano studies classic, and it was the subject of conferences over race, miner safety and the role of women. In Grant County, where the strike took place in 1951, Silver City will recognize Salt of the Earth Day on March 14. As part of the day’s events, the union representing deputies from the same sheriff’s office that once tried to break the strike and run over female strikers will sponsor a screening and a bus tour of the mining site depicted in the film. “I think there is a lot of atoning going on,” said Miles Conway, an organizer with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 18 in New Mexico, a group sponsoring its own anniversary celebration in Silver City. “After all these years, everything is going full circle and we are realizing that the film spoke to all of us.” In Santa Fe, the community college will show the film at 7 p.m. March 27 in Room 216 of the campus at 6401 Richards Ave. The screening will be followed by a question-andanswer session. Other events to commemorate the film’s 60th anniversary include a presentation by author and journalist Yolanda Nava at noon March 11 in the SFCC Boardroom; a panel discussion at 3 p.m. March 27 in the same location; and a 5 p.m. screening of A Crime to Fit the Punishment, which explores the struggles of the makers of Salt of the Earth in the face of McCarthyism and blacklisting, also on March 27. All of the events are free. Salt of the Earth director Herbert J. Biberman was one of the “Hollywood Ten” who refused to answer questions from the House Committee on Un-American Activities about being members of the Communist Party. During production, filmmakers and crew faced harsh criticism from lawmakers and threats of violence from vigilante groups. In addition, the FBI scrutinized the film’s finances in search of communism connections, labs wouldn’t process the film and projectionists refused to show it. Mexican actress Rosaura Revueltas, who played the lead character, was even deported to Mexico. Manny Maldonado, 35, remembers seeing the film in high school. The 1954 movie at first appeared dated, but he recalls becoming a big admirer of the film as he came to understand the significance of the story. “That was my family,” Maldonado said. A deputy with the Grant County Sheriff’s Office and president of a union representing public safety and municipal employees in the area, Maldonado is now involved in promoting the film’s 60th anniversary. In fact, many of unions and government entities that once opposed the strike and the film’s production are involved in anniversary events to honor Salt of the Earth. A film workers’ union, which once distanced itself from the production, is also working to promote the film’s history. William A. Nericcio, an English and comparative literature professor at San Diego State University, said the change in how the film is viewed in New Mexico is a sign of local progress and the transformation of the Southwest into a more Latino-friendly region. “We still care about the film because it’s not dated at all,” Nericcio said. “We’re still talking about the same issues, like the attack on organized labor.” A number of anniversary events are planned this month in other states as well. “We live in a different world now. We have women working at the mines and my [sheriff’s] department is mainly Hispanic,” Maldonado said. “But we need to remember this movie. It’s in our blood.”

Afghan forces toll tops 13,000 By Rod Nordland The New York Times

KABUL, Afghanistan — More than 13,000 Afghan soldiers and police officers have been killed during the war here, far more than previously known, according to Afghan government statistics. A statement released late Sunday by President Hamid Karzai’s cabinet, the Council of Ministers, put the total number of Afghan security forces killed during the past 13 years at 13,729, with another 16,511 Afghan soldiers and police officers wounded. Previously, Afghan ministries in charge of police officers and soldiers had released incomplete information on death tolls, and in the past year had stopped doing so entirely. Known fatalities for the army had been estimated at 3,546, and 6,890 for the police, up

through June of last year. A spokesman for the Afghan Ministry of Defense, Gen. Dawlat Waziri, responding to the cabinet report, confirmed that 4,551 Afghan soldiers had been killed through March 20, 2013, but said the ministry did not have figures for the current Afghan year, which ends March 20, 2014. The cabinet figures included most of this year as well, according to a cabinet official, but did not distinguish between soldiers and police officers. While there was no yearby-year breakdown, it appears certain that the great majority of the increase in Afghan casualties occurred during the past three years. Before 2010, both police and military casualties were relatively few, reflecting the smallness of the Afghan security forces, and the higher proportion of the fighting carried out by NATO


and U.S. troops. For instance, in 2009, roughly twice as many coalition soldiers were killed as Afghan soldiers, based on data compiled by the Brookings Institution and, a website that compiles data on war casualties. According to the compilations by Brookings, only 1,236 Afghan soldiers and 3,290 Afghan police officers were killed from 2007 to 2010 (casualties before then were slight as the forces were so small). That would mean, based on the cabinet’s latest numbers, that from 2011 to the present, more than 8,000 soldiers and police officers have been killed in the conflict. The statement from the Council of Ministers also detailed payments of 1.3 billion afghanis (about $23 million), in death benefits to soldiers’ families. It is unclear why the cabinet released the data now.

LOCAL NEWS ‘Luchador’-masked robber on the run Police searching for burglary suspect who threatened gas station cashier at gunpoint while wearing a Mexican wrestling mask By Uriel J. Garcia

The New Mexican

Santa Fe police are searching for a robber who wore a Mexican-style wrestling mask while threatening a gas station cashier with a gun on Saturday night. Investigators say the culprit was dressed in black and wearing a black-and-silver luchador mask when he brandished the handgun at a 20-year-old male clerk about 10 p.m. Saturday at the Fill Up gas station, 2631 Cerrillos Road, and passed a handwritten note to the cashier. After reading the note, which stated “Cash register and safe one minute or else,” the cashier handed over an undisclosed amount of money. But when the clerk said he didn’t know how to open the safe, the suspect cocked a black handgun and aimed it at

him, according to a police report. The cashier then opened the safe and handed the money to the suspect in a paper bag, police said. The cashier told police the masked suspect didn’t speak, and after the burglary, he saw the suspect run toward Maez Road. And right after, the cashier saw a black Honda Civic turn onto Cerrillos Road from Maez Road, but he wasn’t sure if the suspect was in the car, police said. Police suspect that the burglar might have been a woman because of the note’s “bubbly” and “feminine” handwriting on the note, said Celina Westervelt, a Santa Fe Police Department spokeswoman. Last November, a robber who police believe was female and wearing a different luchador mask, one identified with a Mexican wrestler who goes by the

Ex-shoe salesman gets max prison sentence, with 2 years suspended, for multiple attacks on ex-girlfriend By Phaedra Haywood

The New Mexican

The Santa Fe school board is scheduled to talk Tuesday about creating an admissions policy for The Mandela International Magnet School, an International Baccalaureate facility that will open with 50 students in both grades 7 and 8 this fall. The school, which will be located on the campus of De Vargas Middle School on Llano Street, might base available positions for the first year on geographical distribution throughout the city. The school plans to hold a lottery drawing on March 28 for eligible students. Results of that lottery are expected on April 4. The board also is expected to discuss proposed school renovations for César Chávez Community School during the meeting, scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Educational Services Center, 610 Alta Vista St.

A former Santa Fe shoe salesman who has been described as having foot fetish was sentenced to five and a half years in prison Monday for attacking his ex-girlfriend and biting off parts of her toes. Daniel Anaya, 28, had faced a maximum of seven and a half years in prison after he pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated battery against a household member, two counts of false imprisonment and one count of assault against a household member in exchange for having other charges, including breaking and entering and criminal sexual contact, dismissed in the case. Prosecutor Susan Stinson asked District Judge Mary Marlowe Sommer for the maximum, citing the “violent, escalating nature” of Anaya’s actions against his victim. Sommer imposed the maximum but suspended two years, saying Anaya will serve those two on probation (during which he’ll be on electronic monitoring) after he gets out of prison. Two incidents — one of which took place in November 2012 and another which took place in February 2013 — resulted in Anaya’s prison sentence. In the first incident, Anaya, then an employee in the shoe department at Dillard’s, reportedly asked his former girlfriend to come to his apartment to cut his hair “due to an appointment he was having with a counselor regarding his foot fetish,” according to a police report. The victim told police she allowed him to trim her toenails with his teeth during their relationship. The two went into Anaya’s bedroom and he closed the door behind them and asked if he could “look” at the victim’s feet. When she refused, Anaya, armed with a box cutter, forced her onto his bed, removed her shoes and sucked her toes before biting off a large piece of toenail from her right big toe, according to a published account after his arrest. The woman tried unsuccessfully to get a restraining order against Anaya after the first incident, according to Stinson, and in February 2013, he attacked her again. In that incident, he reportedly entered an apartment that the pair had previously shared while the victim was doing a move-out cleaning. He threw her to the ground, threw her phone out of reach, removed her shoes and socks and held her down while he bit off the tip of her big left toe, “including a portion of the bone,” according to Stinson. “In both incidents,” Stinson told the court, none of the severed flesh or bone was ever recovered and “the victim belives he ingested both items.” Anaya’s victim got a restraining order against him after that, Stinson said, but he allegedly attacked her a third time in April 2013 at her new home in Albuquerque, where she had moved in an attempt to get away from him. Anaya is facing similar charges in that case — in which he allegedly broke into the victim’s home and used a cigar cutter to remove part of one of her toes. Those charges are still pending in state District Court in Albuquerque. Stinson on Monday cited fears for the victim’s safety and the safety of the community in asking that Anaya be locked up for as long as possible, saying a court-appointed evaluator had written a report that noted Anaya’s “obsessive” behavior and “striking” lack of remorse. In asking for leniency, Anaya’s defense attorney, Chris Romero, stressed his client’s previously spotless criminal record and drive to educate himself. Romero noted that his client was only a month from completing a degree in respiratory therapy at the Santa Fe Community College — his face once graced the cover of a piece of promotional literature published by the school — when he got in trouble. Romero also said Anaya had turned himself in after the February incident and asked Romero to approach the District Attorney’s Office about a plea, actions which, Romero said, indicated Anaya was taking responsibility for his behavior. Romero also said the relationship between Anaya and his victim was a bad fit from the start, but that the pair continued to “force it,” staying together for four years in a relationship where even the “intimate relations” were “unhealthy” until the relationship eventually “imploded.” Several family members — including Anaya’s mother, father and cousin — also spoke on Anaya’s behalf, as did a priest and former classmate.

In brief

Man killed in single-car accident over weekend A 21-year-old man died Saturday morning after he was partially ejected though his car’s window after failing to take a sharp curve properly and hitting a rail guard at the intersection of Agua Fría and San Felipe roads. Francisco Chavez wasn’t wearing his seat belt while traveling westbound on Agua Fría when he crashed about 5:20 a.m., the Santa Fe County Sherrif’s Office said Monday. After the vehicle hit the guardrail, Chavez was thrown to the passenger side, hitting the door of his Chevrolet Cobalt, and he was partially ejected through the window, Santa Fe County Sheriff Robert Garcia said Monday. Garcia said speed was a factor in the accident, but not alcohol. Garcia said that if Chavez, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was wearing his seat belt he most likely would have survived.

State eliminates sales tax on most aircraft Gov. Susana Martinez signed a bill Monday that eliminates the state tax on most aircraft sales. State Rep. Bob Wooley sponsored the measure, House Bill 24, which he says will create jobs by making New Mexico competitive with neighboring states. Wooley, R-Roswell, says New Mexico residents who bought airplanes simply made the purchases in Texas airspace to avoid paying taxes on the sale. Texas has no tax on airplane sales, and everybody in the aviation industry knows it, he said. Wooley said buyers would save few hun-

dred thousand dollars with the aerial maneuver, and New Mexico never collected any taxes on airplane sales. By eliminating the tax, New Mexico will enable existing aviation businesses to grow, Wooley said. He said be believed that Roswell, home to two aircraft maintenance companies, would add 125 well-paying jobs with the change. The law eliminating the tax applies to commercial and military aircraft of more than 10,000 pounds of landing weight. Martinez on Monday also signed House Bill 9, which requires screening for congenital heart disease before a newborn is discharged from a hospital or birthing center. Rep. Nora Espinoza, R-Roswell, sponsored the bill.

Gov. Susana Martinez signed Senate Bill 19, which makes it illegal statewide to compose or view text messages while driving. Certain cities already had texting bans. The law creating a statewide prohibition on texting while driving was sponsored by Sen. Peter Wirth, D-Santa Fe. Rep. Jim Smith, R-Sandia Park, carried the bill in the House of Representatives. “We know that texting while driving is a lethal distraction,” Martinez said. “There is no text message that is worth a person’s life.” The fine for a first offense is $25. A second violation would bring a fine of $50. The law against texting while driving makes an exception for summoning medical or emergency help.

School board discusses IB Superintendent of Los Alamos schools to resign school admission policy Los Alamos Public Schools Superintendent Gene Schmidt submitted his resignation to the school board Monday, noting that his last day of work will be June 30 after the close of this school year. Schmidt, who joined the district in 2009, said in a letter to school board President Jim Hall that “it has been my pleasure and a great source of pride” to have served as superintendent. His resignation came a few days after a closed-door session to discuss his evaluation, and Schmidt told The Los Alamos Monitor that, “I just got a sense it was time to move on. Sometimes you get a feeling you don’t have the full support of the board.”

Ban on texting while driving is on the books New Mexico has become the 42nd state to outlaw texting while driving.

Relax in one of our spacious TRUE SUITES

Anaya’s mother wept at the podium as she told the judge she blamed herself for allowing her son to witness domestic violence against her for years before she finally left when Anaya was 20 years old. Anaya also addressed the court, saying he had a lot of remorse over what happened, knew he had a problem with domestic violence and wanted a chance to get help. “I do have a heart, and I do have a conscience,” he said. “I am a good person. Give me a chance.” “You may have been a good person for the majority of your life,” Marlowe Sommer said before announcing Anaya’s sentence. “But what I’m seeing is a very dangerous person.” Not only had Anaya “brandished a weapon,” the judge said, he had also been “sadis-

tic” and “relentless” in his behavior toward his victim. “I can appreciate that she is scared of Daniel Anaya you,” Marlowe Sommer said. “I feel sorry for your family, but you are going to do prison time because I cannot be assured that you are going to leave [the victim] alone.” Romero said Anaya will be eligible to reduce his time behind bars with day-for-day good time credit and approximately 10 months of pre-sentence confinement credit for time he spent in jail awaiting trial, meaning his client will likely spend about two years in prison.

Rad has diligently worked to ensure the project succeeds for all parties and in the process has proven his prowess as a leader and a listener. I believe Rad to be an exceptional and needed candidate who will help lead Santa Fe into the future. —Justin Stockdale (Former President of the Atalaya PTA) | President The Recycled Revival Rad’s already proven over many years on different volunteer boards that he’ll be an exceptionally fair, thoughtful, and resourceful member of our City Council.

What the school district has to say about recent accusations

against myself, the atalaya school neighborhood and school district that we cost the district $1,000,000 and harmed the students attending the school: Hi Rad, I know you’re in the final push before the election. Wish I could vote for you! I visited the school yesterday with Joel and Steve. It’s on time, on budget, and looking fabulous. Think we have a home run here, and all are soooo pleased we made the [design] changes in the [task force] committee. —Carl Gruenler, Chief Business Officer, Santa Fe Public Schools Ms. Bonney’s assertion that her opponent, Rad Acton’s actions, “against the construction of Atalaya Public School had cost the district over

$1,000,000 in changes” couldn’t be further from the truth. Clearly, instead of making one phone call to fully understand the falsehood of this claim, Ms. Bonney’s campaign decided to throw this eleventh hour smear into the mix. The mailer goes on to say, “he said NO to the public schools and YES to a few wealthy neighbors who complained.” As the co-chair of the Atalaya Task Force, on which I participated as the Board representative, Rad Acton worked tirelessly with Carl Gruenler, SFPS Chief Business Officer, the Santa Fe Public Schools and the neighbors to create a win-win solution.

It’s because of the efforts and commitment of Mr. Acton, as well as the additional neighbors on the Task Force, as well as the principal of Atalaya, that the Atalaya project will be completed on budget and on time. As the Vice-President of the SFPS School Board, I can say we take great exception with Ms. Bonney’s claim that we are spending an additional one million on the school.

N.M. sets deadlines for nuke waste handling By Susan Montoya Bryan

The Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE — The federal government’s only underground nuclear waste dump remained shuttered Monday, and state environment officials said they have set deadlines for the U.S. Department of Energy and its contractor to deal with radioactive waste left above ground at the repository. Dozens of drums and other special containers that have been shipped to the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant from federal facilities around the country are being stored in a parking area at the plant and inside the facility’s waste handling building. From there, the waste is usually taken to its final resting place deep in underground salt beds. However, the repository has been closed since early February due to back-to-back

accidents, including a radiation release that exposed at least 13 workers and set off air monitoring devices around the plant. Under its permit with the state, the dump can keep waste stored in the parking area for only 30 days and up to 60 days in the handling building. Due to the closure, the state is extending those deadlines to 60 days and 105 days, respectively. The federal government would have to develop an alternative storage plan if the underground dump remains off-limits for more than three months. The Environment Department outlined the deadlines, along with requirements for weekly reports and a mandatory inspection before operations resume, in an administrative order made public Monday. Jeff Kendall, general counsel for the department, said state officials believe allowing a little more time to fully vet

LANL scholarship winners announced Fourteen Northern New Mexicans have received $1,000 Returning Student/ Regional College scholarships from the Los Alamos National Laboratory Employees’ Scholarship Fund. These awards help students returning to a formal education for certification or a two-year degree at an accredited regional college. Many of the students receiving these awards are pursuing new careers. Funding comes from donations by LANL employees and a matching amount from Los Alamos National Security, LLC. The scholarships are administered by the LANL Foundation. Awards go to: u Catrina Garcia, Santa Fe, for an associate of science degree in nursing from Santa Fe Community College; u Jessica Garcia, Española, for a nursing degree from Northern New Mexico College; u Ross Griego, Chimayó, for an associate of arts degree from Northern New Mexico College; u Leigh Ann Grow, Los Alamos, for a teaching certificate from SFCC; u Melissa Herrera, Española, for an associate of arts degree from Northern New Mexico College; u Kathleen Kosman, Santa Fe, for an associate of arts degree from SFCC; u Enrique Montoya, Serafina, for an

all the options for safely storing the waste is the best bet. “To require them to begin to systematically ship particular waste units back to points of origin or back to particular locations in a rather expedited fashion was not the best thing as far as environmental health or human health in this instance,” Kendall said in a phone interview. Kendall added that the order also gives the state more explicit oversight as to what happens with the waste and how things are being handled by DOE and the plant managers. After 15 years of operating with a stellar record, a truck that officials said was hauling salt in the underground chambers caught fire Feb. 5, shuttering the plant and halting all waste shipments. Nine days later, a radiation alert activated in the area where newly arrived waste was being stored.

Sheriff: 1 man wounded in Chaparral disturbance CHAPARRAL — Authorities in Southern New Mexico say a woman is in custody after allegedly shooting her live-in boyfriend in Chaparral. Doña Ana County sheriff’s investigators say 37-year-old Margarita Flores is being held on suspicion of attempted murder. Flores remained in jail Monday on a $75,000 secured bond, investigators said. Flores told investigators she thought she had been stabbed during an argument with her boyfriend Sunday evening. But medical examiners at a Las Crucesarea hospital didn’t find any evidence to substantiate that claim. Authorities say the man was shot multiple times in the torso and was transported to an El Paso-area hospital in critical condition. His name hasn’t been released. Chaparral is located north of El Paso and south of Las Cruces.

Request to oust judge in slaughter suit denied ALBUQUERQUE— The New Mexico Supreme Court is refusing to bar a District Court judge from handling a lawsuit against a proposed horse slaughterhouse in Roswell.

Tests are ongoing to determine the health effects for the workers, and officials have yet to determine what may have caused the leak. They have been unable to access the underground portion of the repository. Donavan Mager, a spokesman for Nuclear Waste Partnership LLC, which runs WIPP, said Monday onsite monitoring and sampling of the surrounding soil, vegetation and water continue. He said new results are expected in the coming days. WIPP officials confirmed Monday that only 13 employees were onsite when the radiation release occurred late Feb. 14. Another 140 employees showed up for work the following day. Now, there are only 80 essential workers on site. Mager said they’re working in areas that have been tested and are free of contamination. Some areas have been designated

The Albuquerque Journal reports that an order by a three-justice panel of the state high court denies Valley Meat’s request to have District Judge Matthew Wilson removed from the case. The request alleges there’s an appearance of impropriety and a lack of impartiality by Wilson because of posts on his campaign website by other people commenting on the horse slaughter case. The lawsuit by state Attorney General Gary King seeks a permanent order blocking horse slaughter in New Mexico. The resumption of commercial horse slaughter in the United States has been blocked by a new federal budget measure that withholds money for required federal inspections.

DWI arrests u Melecio Gallegos, 20, was arrested Saturday on charges of aggravated DWI, driving on a suspended or revoked license, careless driving and failure to pay fines, after he crashed a car at South Fork and Cedar Road, according to the sheriff’s office. A deputy’s report says that Gallegos had left the scene and came back 20 minutes later in his father’s car. The suspect refused a Breathalyzer test but field sobriety tests were done, according to a deputy. The report says that Gallegos showed signs of impairment and was arrested. u Sergio Castillo, 20, of Santa Fe was arrested Sunday on charges of DWI and driving without a license, according to the sheriff’s office. A deputy’s report says Castillo was found passed out in the driver’s seat of his vehicle at about 5:30 a.m. Sunday near Rodeo and Zia roads. Castillo failed field sobriety tests and was taken to the

Architect quits school project in Farmington FARMINGTON — Plans to build a new high school in Farmington are at a standstill after the architecture firm overseeing the project abruptly quit. The Farmington Daily Times reports that Greer Stafford/SJCF Architecture resigned from the $62 million project. The Farmington Municipal School District Board of Education accepted the resignation during a meeting Thursday. Scott Stafford, the firm’s president, says the resignation was the result of a disagreement with district officials that couldn’t be overcome. School district officials declined to comment, citing confidentiality agreements. Ted Lasiewicz, the district’s chief of operations, says the new Farmington High School will be completed by the end of 2016.

Our Web readers speak out:

Solar panel project at Chavez Center one step closer to reality, Feb. 24 ‘But we will be sustainable! …’ ” Another happy hippie idea with no thought of future expenses. Are these panels hail proof or delinquent proof? How may panels will need to be replaced over the 25-year payoff time? How much money will the city have to spend on maintenance from outside companies because city workers won’t know how the system works? How long before those panels are just a part of the landscape because the system broke and the city doesn’t get around to fixing it?” O.M. That is great news! Bravo GCCC!” W.G. Here’s what you need to know about Fanta Se: Our leaders have an infinite appetite for ‘feel good’ initiatives. … Meanwhile, we have other pressing needs. For example: Santa Fe has about the worst Internet connectivity in the U.S. Cable isn’t available many places, CenturyLink won’t install any more DSL, and the other alternatives are all really expensive and poor quality. The rest of the country has their political leaders out there leaning on Comcast and CenturyLink to honor their franchise agreements, or (better yet) convincing Google that Santa Fe should be the next location for Google Fiber. But here in Fanta Se our leaders are too busy appeasing the electromagnetically sensitive, so we plan a solar carport instead. How about we elect some folks who can think about priorities in a clearheaded way?” J.Y.

Mexicans face racism, and fight back Dear Mexican: My dad says when he was a kid growing up in Downey, Calif., they used to open the local plunge (pool) to mexicanos and negritos on Thursdays only because the pool was cleaned once a week on Friday mornings.

Then again, while I don’t blame the boricua for wanting to let people know he’s not Mexican but rather Puerto Rican, I must also wonder why he wants people to know he’s Puerto Rican in the first place.

Council drops paper fee from bag ban that begins today, Feb. 27 I’m laughing out here in my ‘lost cause’ state of residence (California). So now this ‘feel-good,’ socalled ‘green’ law will actually cause more damage to the environment than if these jokers on your City Council had not meddled in this affair in the first place! Absolutely people will just switch to paper (with its higher environmental costs … poor trees!) with at best only a small minority schlepping around reusable bags … it’s already happening out my way with our bag bans, even though the 10-cent fee is in place. Hey, at least the law out your way doesn’t apply to restaurants (yet) like it does out here. It’s a real ‘joy’ to have your takeout food leak all over your car seat or floor and/or clothing since you can’t get it in a plastic bag anymore. I watched a poor lady have her entire takeout order end up on the sidewalk when it burst through the paper bag she was given. I’m sure her family didn’t really need to eat that night.” J.K.

‘Keep chain stores out of downtown,’ Letters to the editor, March 1 Pilar Vergara, come on down! You will fit right in with all the elites that have moved here because they loved the ambiance that Santa Fe had to offer. Trouble is they changed what they were here to enjoy and now they live here part time. Unlike many who live here full time in what was once a town where one could live and raise a family.” J.T. The schizophrenia that is the attitude about Santa Fe continues, and Ms. Vergara’s letter is representative of it. On the one hand, everyone laments how Santa Fe is no longer the ‘sleepy little charming Western town’ filled with people who look, dress and act differently from the rest of the world. On the other hand, there is additional lament within Santa Fe about the lack of opportunity for good education and good jobs paying a good wage. Sorry, but ‘sleepy, little, charming’ towns do not have the driving economic forces needed to generate thousands of decent jobs for folks needing or wanting to live here, get quality educations and have the opportunity to raise families filled with kids who can feel good about their potential for the future. You can’t have it both ways.” M.G. Pardon me, Pilar Vergara, but once upon a time the big chain stores were downtown, Montgomery Ward, Penney’s, Woolworths and Sears. The downtown area was packed, with locals. When they left, Santa Fe lost its identity, and became Fanta Se, just for you tourists.” S.S.

Reading daily matters to our children


f you’ve ever shared a book with a child, you know the joy and excitement this small but meaningful act can bring. But, according to the National Center for Education Statistics, since 1993 only 53 percent to 58 percent of children ages 3 to 5 received this joy on a daily basis. We can do better! Simply reading daily with a child does require parents, older brothers and sisters, and other caring adults to add yet another hat to the many they already wear to care for and raise a child. But by adding the reading hat to your collection, you also add great rewards: Children who are read to at home have a higher success rate in school. Children who read frequently develop stronger reading skills. To get kids excited about reading and

encourage more adults to spend time reading with their children, the National Education Association (NEA) launched the first NEA’s Read Across America day in 1998. On Monday, NEA’s Read Across America marked 17 years of celebrating reading and the birthday of Dr. Seuss. So from coast to coast, teachers, celebrities, community members and parents are putting aside the many hats they wear for work and play and donning their reading hats, the red and white striped stovepipe hat of the Cat in the Hat. NEA-New Mexico and Local Association members, cooperating with school officials, are bringing the Cat in the Hat and complimentary books during late February and March to students in these and other districts: Santa Fe, Española, Kirtland, Hatch, Bernalillo,

Artesia, Las Cruces, Los Lunas, Farmington and Las Vegas. In bringing a nation of readers together under one hat, NEA’s Read Across America offers opportunities for you to volunteer, to read, and to share your life experiences; opportunities for businesses to contribute products to congratulate young readers and for employees to volunteer time at reading programs; and opportunities for our elected officials, from the national to the state and local levels, to make reading a high priority. Let’s all join together to ensure New Mexico’s children have caring adults to share books and rich reading experiences. Betty Patterson is president of NEA New Mexico.


Entering another world near Las Cruces


ave you ever imagined climbing into a machine, spinning some dials and transporting yourself into the past? Most people have thought of time travel but, in a proposed wilderness area near Las Cruces, it seemed real to us. Hearing about legislation to designate sections of BLM lands near Las Cruces as a national monument, we decided to take a look. A friend familiar with the area was our guide. We drove about 45 minutes from town, first west paralleling Interstate 10 then north on a paved road through grassland, parked the car and hiked up a foothill of the Sierra de las Uvas. We walked slowly up the hillside covered with volcanic rock and thin soil supporting a sparse growth of scrub grass, creosote, mesquite and a few cacti. Stepping over tiny ground plants with purple flowers, we thought about how it would look in spring when Ocatillo, prickly pear and yucca bloom. At the top of the hill, we seemed transported hundreds of years back in time. Turning full circle, all we could see was miles of grassland dotted with low hills, a few remnants of volcanic cones, and mountains — jagged Organ Peaks to the east, rugged Potrillo Mountains to the south, Florida Mountains far to the west beyond Deming and more of the Uvas to

our north. Other than an occasional jet far overhead, the 21st century had vanished. Las Cruces lay invisibly tucked into the Rio Grande valley, I-10 was obscured by hills and grasslands, and Deming could not be seen. We were transported to a time before humans had made a mark upon the land. One could imagine being a far-ranging Pronghorn or one of the first people pausing to scan the horizon while following deer sign; a soldier trudging endless miles behind a mounted Spanish explorer; a prospector headed into the mountains to try his luck; a bandit lying in wait for the Butterfield stage or a cowhand rounding up strays in an unfenced land. It’s hard to describe the impact of the uninterrupted miles of open land and the silence. We were tiny specks on the landscape yet intimately connected to everything. And the overlook was just the beginning. Returning to the car, we drove a bit farther, then hiked a dirt track from a cattle tank into Valles Canyon. Cattle and tanks would remain. Existing grazing leases and hunting rights that have been part of BLMmanaged lands continue under monument status, but the land would be protected from commercial development. Leaving the dirt track, we continued

down a dry arroyo, which deepened with rock walls rising on either side. Scrambling down what must be a beautiful waterfall in monsoon season, we came upon a steep wall with 50 or more petroglyphs. The time machine took us back to the age of hunter-gatherers. Having no written language, they pecked and scratched images into the hard stone — abstract circular and geometric shapes as well as animals, fish, birds and human hands. What did they mean? Were they prayers for a successful hunt or for the fertility of animals their lives depended on? Was it a record of their journey or part of a ceremony? Mystery is inherent in wild places. The canyon beckoned on, but it was time to turn back. A day outdoors, silence, uninterrupted vistas and signs of prehistoric man’s passing had worked together to delight our senses, stimulate our imaginations and refresh us. The unique character of this place seems well worth preserving. New Mexico is a “Land of Enchantment” for many reasons, one of which, we discovered, is time travel! Although Socorro is home, Sandra Noll and Erv Nichols are nomadic volunteers. Since retirement, they have traveled extensively in the Southwest.

Ukrainian restraint a way out T

he Ukrainians will fight. For the past few days, the Russian military has attempted to provoke the Ukrainians into making the mistake the Georgians made in 2008: shooting first. First, Russia sent unmarked troops off their base in Sevastopol; the Ukrainians did not take the bait. Next, the Russians sent armored units up the road to Simferopol, the capital of Crimea, but still the Ukrainians did not respond with violence. Then these unmarked troops took over airfields and administration buildings around Crimea, effectively occupying the peninsula. The Ukrainians put their military forces on high alert and called up their military reserves — but they have not attacked. This restraint is wise but agonizing. If the Russians attack Ukrainian forces in Crimea or eastern Ukraine, the Ukrainian military will respond, and the war would be terrible. Neither the Russian nor the Ukrainian military is a formidable fighting force. Economic pressures have starved both militaries of resources; readiness is low, and morale in general is not high. But a Russian attack on Ukrainian forces or a Russian invasion of eastern Ukraine would change some of that. Ukrainian forces from all over the country would converge to fiercely resist the invasion. When we each served as U.S. ambassador in Ukraine, we visited Ukrainian military bases, talked to commanders and troops, observed training and evaluated units. Many of these units are well-equipped with operational tanks, artillery and transport. One of us jumped with an elite airborne unit whose combat readiness and morale, in contrast to other units, were high. A Russian attack on Ukrainian forces or territory would result in classic and bloody tank warfare, the likes of which Europe has not seen since World War II. It doesn’t have to be. Vladimir Putin is not insane. The condemnations consid-

Election day: Get out and vote!

T ered so far — canceling the Group of Eight meeting to be held in Sochi; expelling Russia from the G-8; personal financial sanctions and travel bans on Russian officials whose actions violate international law; meetings of NATO, the U.N. Security Council and European foreign ministers at which Russia is excoriated; and even broad economic sanctions, as were placed on South Africa and Iran — may influence his decisions on next steps. He clearly had wanted to bring Russia back to the big table, an effort that is being destroyed in front of him. An invasion of Ukraine brands him an international outlaw. So he may reconsider. The Ukrainians should leave an opening for Putin to back down. First, they should continue to exercise restraint in the face of Russian aggression: Don’t shoot first. Second, they should continue to make clear that there is no threat to Russian citizens and Russian speakers in Ukraine and that the new government in Kiev intends to represent and serve all Ukrainians. Interim President Oleksandr Turchynov’s veto of legislation that would have demoted the Russian language is one concrete action to highlight.

Third, they should invite international monitors to patrol Ukraine’s eastern border, report on any hostile actions and reassure the international community that minorities, including Russians, are being treated fairly. Fourth, the new government in Kiev should bring in moderate politicians from the east, including members of the Party of Regions who have disowned Viktor Yanukovych, the president who fled last week. Fifth, the new government in Kiev should be willing to sit down with Putin in the presence of international mediators and discuss a return to the status quo ante or a mutually agreeable compromise, possibly based on enhanced autonomy for Crimea within a united Ukraine. Others can help. Ukraine needs financial support from the International Monetary Fund, the United States and Europe. It also needs to know that it has a place in Europe. Beyond the association agreement with the European Union that should now be signed, Ukrainians will want to know that if they undertake the painful economic and political reforms required, membership in the E.U. is a possibility, even if a distant prospect. NATO can

play a role by recognizing the threat a rogue Russia poses to member states, especially the Baltics. Ukraine has suffered at the hands of Russian and Soviet leaders for centuries — memories of Joseph Stalin’s genocide by starvation in the 1930s are still raw. It wouldn’t take much to spark violence and, as Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk has said, war. It can happen; and if it does, Ukrainians will fight. Ukraine, Russia, Europe and the United States should do all in their respective powers to avoid war. William B. Taylor was U.S. ambassador to Ukraine from 2006 to 2009 and is vice president for the Middle East and Africa at the United States Institute of Peace. Steven K. Pifer was U.S. ambassador to Ukraine from 1998 to 2000 and is a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. John E. Herbst was U.S. ambassador to Ukraine from 2003 to 2006 and directs the Center for Complex Operations at National Defense University. They collaborated on this op-ed with the other two former U.S. ambassadors to Ukraine, Roman Popadiuk and William Green Miller. They wrote this for The Washington Post.


No sense arguing paper vs. plastic bags


atural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage, hands out no bags at all. Instead, boxes, which are of course numerous at all grocery stores, are available for carrying out groceries when customers have not brought their own bags. This is totally easy and convenient. Why can’t the other grocery stores do this, too? Fighting and arguing over the issue of plastic or paper simply makes no sense.

Defeat TPP Your article on the free trade deals (“Obama, Dems at odds over major trade deals,” Feb. 19), ignores the viciousness in these deals. First, the Trans-Pacific Partnership has been negotiated in secret, to avoid public scrutiny of its content. Secondly, “fast-track” approval by Congress is intended to avoid public scrutiny of an agreement unacceptable to the public. Thirdly, those who have studied the leaked, still secret TPP documents find that it has little to do with trade and everything to do with international corporate rule. Fourthly, its adoption would

How that translates into voter turnout, we will find out shortly after 7 p.m. today, when voting stop. Polls open at 7 a.m. (you can find polling places at We are encouraged in early voting numbers. Some 3,000 voters already have cast their ballots, about twice as many as in 2010, the last mayoral election. We encourage every eligible citizen to vote. Electing our representatives is not just our right, it is our responsibility. Watching the turmoil around the world, where people must protest to win representation that they hope will be democratic, or where they must stand in line in front of armed soldiers for hours to cast their ballots, it is embarrassing to think that voter turnout in municipal elections is so low. In 2010, only about 27 percent of voters turned out, while in 2006, participation was around 30 percent of registered voters. We hope the numerous forums, spirited campaigning and furious debate means that more people will do their duty as citizens and get out and vote. The biggest wild card in this election, of course, is how (or whether) the eligible voters among the 13,200 residents who became city residents on Jan. 1 will choose to participate. Registered voters in the newly annexed areas in south Santa Fe can participate — they didn’t have to reregister. Should the mayor’s race be close, for example, the newest area of town could make the difference. Santa Fe also never has had public financing in the mayor’s races. While individual big-money donors were absent, the presence of special interest political action committees, all supporting the same candidate, has proved controversial. Once again, here are The New Mexican’s endorsements for this election: u Charter amendments: Vote yes on 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. Vote yes on Charter Amendment 8, allowing the mayor a vote on issues before the Santa Fe City Council. Vote no on 9, the amendment to create a full-time mayor with a salary and more powers to hire and fire. While we are not opposed to a full-time mayor, the amendment as proposed gives the office too much authority. u City Council: District 1, Signe Lindell; District 2, Joseph Maestas; District 3, Carmichael Dominguez; District 4, Ron Trujillo. In District 2, we would like to express our disappointment with candidate Mary Bonney, whose attack ad, “Bad Boys,” against opponents Rad Acton and Joseph Maestas hits below the belt at the last minute. Her charges are either flat-out wrong or pulled out of context. The tardiness of the attack gives her opponents little opportunity to respond. As a privately financed candidate — Bonney tried, but failed, to get public financing. Her actions at the end of this campaign smack of desperation. u Mayor: The candidates are Patti Bushee, Bill Dimas and Javier Gonzales. Each has strengths/drawbacks — Santa Fe, you’ll have to decide.

BEIJING — Chinese authorities said Monday that they have arrested three more suspects in an attack Saturday in which knife-wielding assailants killed 29 and wounded at least 140 at a train station, according to state media. Authorities have blamed the attack on separatists from China’s restive Xinjiang region, and late Monday night, police identified as the leader of the attack a man whose name appears to be from the Uighur ethnic minority that has long chafed under Chinese rule. The gruesome attack Saturday, which left bodies strewn throughout the train station in the southern city of Kunming, threatens to worsen already strained relations between the country’s Uighurs and its ethnic Han Chinese majority. China’s government-controlled Xinhua News Agency said Monday that the attack was carried out by a terrorist gang of six men and two women. Four were shot and killed Saturday by authorities, and a female was arrested. Xinhua said the remaining three were arrested Monday afternoon. Earlier reports said more than 10 attackers were involved. Authorities did not explain the discrepancy. Xinhua said the leader’s

name is Abdurehim Kurban, but did not say whether he was among those arrested or killed. At a news briefing Monday, Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said, “The flag of the East Turkistan Islamic Movement terrorist group was indeed found at the scene, among other evidence.” The Ministry of Public Security’s criminal investigation division posted on its social media account that it had linked five of the suspects to the attack using “interviews, forensic examination, fingerprint comparison and DNA inspection.” Within hours of the deadly assault Saturday night, the government declared it a “premeditated violent terrorist attack.” And many Chinese online have likened it to their country’s version of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in the United States. A coordinated attack of

this size and nature is rare in China. China’s leaders quickly responded with statements from top officials vowing “allout efforts” to punish the perpetrators. Human rights groups and Uighurs expressed concern that the incident might cause a backlash against Uighurs in the country and result in even heavier security. State media editorials Monday called for increased measures against ter-

rorism in Xinjiang. In a sign of how emotionally charged the attacks have become, many Chinese staterun media and online users heaped scorn and launched online campaigns against Western news organizations Monday, including CNN, BBC and The Washington Post, for including long-standing complaints of discrimination and oppression by Uighurs in their coverage of the attacks. Many called such Western coverage of the stabbings hypocritical attempts to justify terrorism. “US double standard on terrorism encourages slaughters,” read an editorial by Xinhua News Agency. When asked about some foreign governments that denounced the attacks without explicitly calling it “terrorism” — as the U.S. Embassy in Beijing did on its social media account — China’s foreign ministry spokesman Qin said, “Bloody facts are placed in front of the world. … We hope, when dealing with such violent terrorists, the international community should speak with one voice and take the same actions.”

It’s high time the Southside residents get some respect from City Hall!!! During this campaign I have stood up against the “special interests” who think they own this town. I have called-out the hypocrites who continue to exploit our city for their own personal gain while the rest of us struggle to make a living and raise our families. It’s time for a new way, a new path into the future for all of us. There is nothing scarier than to stand up for your rights against the powerful and special interests in your community. I know all too well because I have been doing this my entire life. The scales of justice have tipped for the worse and we, the working people, and our families, are the ones paying for the injustices cast upon us over the last decade.


Twenty years ago the people of this great city stood up and showed the special interests what they wanted for their city and their families. They stood up and voted for who they believed in; they stood up for their families and children; and refused to let the newspapers, the PAC’s, the wealthy and special interests tell them who they should vote for. The people stood up and said “Ya Basta”.


It’s OUR city too! IT’S TIME to stand up again!

Witness at Pistorius trial recalls hearing screams By Christopher Torchia and Gerald Imray The Associated Press

PRETORIA, South Africa — “Bang … bang, bang, bang.” The murder trial of Oscar Pistorius opened Monday in South Africa with testimony from a neighbor who described the sound of what she said were four gunshots and recalled the “bloodcurdling screams” of a woman who prosecutors say was the girlfriend slain by the onetime star Oscar athlete in his home. Pistorius “It’s the most helpless feeling I’ve ever had in my life,” university lecturer Michelle Burger said of listening to the screams. “I knew something terrible was happening in that house.” The 27-year-old double-amputee runner, whose stature peaked at the 2012 London Olympics and then plummeted when he shot model and television personality Reeva Steenkamp in the predawn hours of Valentine’s Day last year, stood in the dock in a dark gray suit and black tie, writing in a pad and sometimes passing notes to defense lawyers. At one point, he smiled at a person sitting behind him. Steenkamp’s mother, June, sat near Pistorius but there was no communication between them. The proceedings were broadcast on television, though Burger was not shown at her own request, and millions of people around the world followed a trial where the heady mix

Lobos rise to No. 21 in national rankings UNM, SDSU tied for first in Mountain West The Associated Press

The red-hot University of New Mexico men’s basketball team continued its steady rise up the national rankings on Monday. The Lobos, winners of five straight following Sunday’s 72-58 come-frombehind win at Nevada, jumped to No. 21 in both The Associated Press

and USA Today Coaches top 25 polls. It’s their highest ranking since reaching No. 19 back in November. New Mexico (23-5, 14-2 in the Mountain West) closes the regular season with a pair of games this week. The Lobos will host Air Force in The Pit on Wednesday, then travel to San Diego State on Saturday in a game that might very well decide the MWC title. The Aztecs (25-3, 14-2) and Lobos are in a tie for first. SDSU’s slate is more daunting, as the Aztecs travel to third-place UNLV on Wednesday

before hosting UNM. San Diego State also jumped ahead in the polls, moving up three spots to No. 10 this week. They had been as high as No. 5. The Lobos will dedicate Wednesday’s game to seniors Kendall Williams, Cameron Bairstow and Chris Perez. Williams became the MWC’s all-time assists leader in the win over Nevada while Bairstow is leading the conference in scoring and is a finalist for national player of the year. Perez is a fourth-year walk-on. Cavaliers creeping up: Vir-

ginia jumped from No. 12 to fifth in this week’s poll, the Cavaliers’ first appearance in the top 10 since the 2001-02 season, when they reached as high as No. 4. Saturday’s win over Syracuse gave Virginia its first outright Atlantic Coast Conference title since 1980-81. The Cavaliers, featuring three-time national player of the year Ralph Sampson, were in the top 10 that entire season, spending four weeks at No. 1 before reaching the Final Four.

Golson ready to lead Irish after being suspended By Tom Coyne

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The first day of spring practice was a bit surreal for Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson. It had nothing to do with the 4 below zero temperature outside when the Fighting Irish took the field inside at 7:30 a.m. Monday. It had everything to do with that fact he was putting on his gold Notre Dame helmet and red practice jersey for the first time since being suspended from school last May for academic impropriety. “I felt accomplished for a split moment, that I went through what I went through, and now I’m back,” he said. “I’m moving forward now and

lighting up traditional buildings in the colors of the Brazilian flag. Brazil promised all 12 stadiums would be ready by the end of last year, but only six were completed. Two may be ready less than a month before the World Cup, including the one hosting the opener between Brazil and Croatia in Sao Paulo. The Itaquerao will not be ready before May 15, Valcke said. That’s when they also believe the venue in the southern city of Curitiba will also be finalized. In the wetlands city of Cuiaba, the stadium, inside and out, also was not ready. Infrastructure work outside nearly every stadium was another reason for concern. Even in places where the stadium was finished, it’s common to find construction sites filled with workers rushing to finish footpaths, pave

access roads, and install lighting posts. “We have to work in conditions where the cement is not even dry [and] we already put things in place,” Valcke said. “There is no criticism, there is just a challenge. For sure, the stadiums are beautiful. It will work and you will have what you expected.” Equipping a stadium to World Cup working standards requires 90 days, so FIFA and local organizers will have to start installing temporary structures needed for media and sponsors while construction work continues outside the venues. A recent poll showed the lowest support among Brazilians for hosting the World Cup. Many are frustrated with the billions spent to host the tournament, money they would rather see spent to improve hospitals, schools and infrastructure.

Davenport elected to Hall of Fame By Rachel Cohen

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Lindsay Davenport was in the middle of another major life milestone when she found out she had been elected to the International Tennis Hall of Fame. The three-time Grand Slam champion got the call when she was in a hospital about to give birth to her fourth child in early January. With daughter Haven nearly 2 months old now, Davenport can start to reflect on the honor. “Growing up playing tennis, getting to the Hall of Fame was never even in my dreams,” she said on a conference call Monday after the class of 2014 was announced. “It seemed a little bit too big for me.” It never occurred to her until after she won her second major title in 1999 and Bud Collins, a Hall of Famer himself, mentioned the possibility. The 37-year-old Davenport is thrilled that at the enshrinement ceremony in Newport, R.I., on July 12, her 6-year-old son Jagger will get to learn about the sport’s history. He plays tennis, too. Davenport will be joined by five-time Paralympic medalist Chantal Vandierendonck in the recent player category and

coach Nick Bollettieri, executive Jane Brown Grimes and broadcaster John Barrett in the contributor category. Davenport won the 1998 U.S. Open, 1999 Wimbledon, 2000 Australian Open and 1996 Olympic gold medal to go with three major doubles titles. The American held the world’s No. 1 ranking for 98 weeks in her career. That first major championship, at her home Grand Slam event, always will be special. “For any player who has ever

played with insecurity, not sure where they’re supposed to be, how good they are, that really was a huge moment, not just in my career but for me personally,” Davenport said. Bollettieri, now 82, has coached 10 players to the No. 1 ranking, including Andre Agassi, Jim Courier, Monica Seles and Boris Becker. In 1978, he founded the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy, the first fulltime tennis boarding school. At a news conference in New York, Bollettieri acknowledged

this was one of the few times in his life he felt at a loss for words. “To be standing aside some of the players I’ve helped achieve what they are,” he said, “is a dream that even Nick Bollettieri can’t comprehend.” Vandierendonck was a top Dutch player before she was injured in a car accident in 1983 and went on to become a pioneer in wheelchair tennis. Brown Grimes is a former managing director of the Women’s Professional Tennis Council, now known as the WTA Tour Board; president of the U.S. Tennis Association; and president of the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Barrett was the “Voice of Wimbledon” on the BBC from 1971 to 2006. His wife, former top-ranked player Angela Mortimer Barrett, was inducted into the Hall in 1993. Agassi and Steffi Graf are the only other married couple in the Hall. Davenport wishes she’d done a better job during her career of following Billie Jean King’s advice to “enjoy the process.” But she’s proud that she believes she always played the sport for the right reasons. “You’re not great at something unless you love it,” she said.

Lobos: First tourney slot decided Friday Continued from Page B-1 Virginia was No. 24 in this season’s preseason Top 25 and fell to 25th in the first week of the regular season. The Cavaliers dropped out of the poll the next week and didn’t return until four weeks ago at No. 20. They moved up every week until reaching No. 5 on Monday. Familar foe about to dance: The first spot in the NCAA Tournament’s field of 68 can be decided Friday when Harvard visits Yale. The Ivy League is the only one of the 32 conferences with an automatic bid not to have a postseason tournament. Harvard has clinched at least a share of the title for a fourth straight season and can nail down the automatic bid to the Big Dance with a win over the Bulldogs. Harvard, of course, was a 14-seed last year and stunned No. 3 New Mexico in the second round in Salt Lake City. If Yale pulls the upset, there will be a one-game playoff for the Ivy championship. Free-falling Buckeyes: Ohio State fell out of the rankings for the second time this season. The Buckeyes fell from No. 22 after losses last week to Penn State and Indiana. Ranked 11th in the preseason Top 25, the Buckeyes reached as high as No. 3 when they started the season 15-0. They fell out for one week before returning to the poll the last three weeks. Texas, which was No. 24 last week, fell out after a five-week run in the poll, when it reached as high as 15th. The Longhorns have lost three of four, including the 77-65 defeat to Oklahoma last weekend. Not even close: This is the second

straight week Florida is No. 1 and the Gators’ 12th week ever on top. That’s good enough to tie Arkansas, Georgetown and Virginia on the all-time list. The leader? UCLA with 134 weeks on top. In case you’re scoring at home, New Mexico has never been ranked higher than No. 3.

Ranked vs. ranked: There are eight games this week featuring two ranked teams, the most notable of which is Saturday’s UNM-San Diego State tilt in Viejas Arena. Four of the eight involve the American Athletic Conference. On Wednesday, No. 11 Louisville, tied for first place, is at No. 18 SMU. On Thursday, No. 20 Memphis is at No. 15 Cincinnati, the other team tied for first. On Saturday, SMU is at Memphis and No. 19 Connecticut is at Louisville. On Thursday, No. 24 Iowa is at No. 22 Michigan State in the Big Ten. On Saturday, No. 25 Kentucky is at No. 1 Florida in the SEC, No. 14 North Carolina is at No. 4 Duke in the ACC. Big man shelved: Freshman center Joel Embiid will sit out the final two regularseason games for No. 8 Kansas so that he can rest a lower back strain that has already caused him to miss a game. Jayhawks coach Bill Self said Monday that Embiid re-aggravated the injury and that experts have told the coaching’ staff that the best remedy is simply rest. The Jayhawks, who have already wrapped up their 10th consecutive Big 12 championship, play host to Texas Tech on Wednesday night before finishing the regular season Saturday at West Virginia. The 7-foot Embiid has been a revelation this season, averaging 11.2 points and 8.1 rebounds despite only playing basketball for a few years.

Trial: Pistorius faces minimum of 25 years Continued from Page B-1 of a celebrity defendant and shocking allegations has drawn comparisons to the O.J. Simpson case two decades ago. Prosecutors allege that Pistorius, who has been free on bail, shot Steenkamp after an argument. He has said he killed her after mistaking her for a nighttime intruder in his home, shooting her through the closed door of the toilet cubicle in his bathroom. Steenkamp, 29, was hit three times — in the head, elbow and hip area; a fourth bullet did not hit her. Early testimony focused on whether the screams that Burger said she heard were those of a terrified woman about to be shot to death, as prosecutors allege, or were instead Pistorius’ desperate shrieks for help after a fatal mistake, as his defense lawyers contend. Burger, who lives about 196 yards from Pistorius’ house, gave her account of the sequence of events in the predawn hours of Feb. 14 last year. “I was woken up by a woman’s petrified screams. I heard her screaming first,” Burger said. “Then I heard her call

for help. Then I heard a man call for help three times. I then made a call. … I gave the phone to my husband and he spoke to security. Afterward, I heard the woman’s petrified screams again.” Burger said she then heard four gunshots, with a gap between the first shot and the rest, and more screaming. “I heard her voice during the shots,” she said. “Shortly after the shots was the last time I heard that woman.” The chief defense lawyer, Barry Roux, opened his crossexamination by asking Burger if she thought Pistorius was a liar. She didn’t directly answer that, but questioned Pistorius’ version. “I can only tell the court what I heard that evening,” Burger said. “I cannot understand how I could clearly hear a woman scream but Mr. Pistorius could not hear it.” Roux, in an attempt to discredit the idea that Pistorius and Steenkamp had an argument before the shooting, contended that Burger heard just Pistorius screaming for help. He also suggested that she had not heard gunshots, but instead had heard the sound

of the athlete breaking down the toilet door with a cricket bat after realizing he had shot Steenkamp. “Could there have been shots fired when you were still asleep and you heard the screams afterward?” he asked. Roux’s constant challenges to Burger’s account of the sequence of events made for a contentious back-and-forth at times. “Shall I repeat my question? It can’t be that difficult,” Roux said at one point, implying that the witness was evasive. On another occasion, Burger said: “I didn’t sit there with a stopwatch and take down the timing of each shot.” Pistorius pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and three other counts relating to shooting guns in public in unrelated incidents and illegal possession of ammunition. Defense lawyer Kenny Oldwadge read a statement from Pistorius in which he said the killing was an accident and that there were inconsistencies in the state’s case. Pistorius said he brought two fans in from the balcony during the night after speaking to his girlfriend in bed beside him.

He said Steenkamp must have gone into the bathroom while he was getting the fans. Pistorius said he did not notice that she had gone, then heard the bathroom window open. “I approached the bathroom, armed with my firearm, so as to defend Reeva and I,” Pistorius said in the statement. He said he then heard a noise in the toilet cubicle and was in a “fearful state” because he was unable to run away or defend himself physically since he was not wearing his prosthetic legs. He said he shouted at what he thought was an intruder and then shot through the toilet door, only later realizing that he shot Steenkamp. South Africa has a high crime rate and many people worry about daily security, but the prosecution case is likely to focus partly on Pistorius’ alleged character flaws and the suggestion that he was a hotheaded gun enthusiast. If convicted on the murder charge, Pistorius could be sent to prison for at least 25 years before the chance of parole, the minimum time someone must serve if given a life sentence in South Africa. There is no death penalty.

Djokovic beats Murray at Madison Square Garden exhibition match NEW YORK — Andy Murray smiled a few times during his match at Madison Square Garden. This is a player who rarely cracks a grin after winning Grand Slam titles, but Monday night’s meeting with friend and rival Novak Djokovic was an exhibition, and even Murray was happy to play along. Djokovic won 6-3, 7-6 (2) as the two mixed the usual exhibition hijinks with some long rallies reminiscent of their epic Grand Slam matchups. A born showman, Djokovic always has fun with the New York crowd at the U.S. Open. When on a game point Monday he shanked an overhead into the net, the Serb did pushups in penance. It was the first time playing at the Garden for both. “I was amazed by the size of it,” Djokovic said. “With the history in the world of sports and entertainment and music, it’s probably the most impressive and most important indoor facility in the world.” Murray still grimaced more than once after an unforced error as if he were a few miles away at Flushing Meadows. But he also high-fived a fan after hooking in a winner down the line. And the Brit provides plenty of entertainment value simply with his ability to run down nearly every ball.

Peyton Manning passes physical Quarterback cleared to play in 2014 By Arnie Stapleton

The Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Sixty touchdown passes. Fifteen wins. A fifth MVP trophy. Peyton Manning is more productive than he’s ever been, and whether he’s deciphering defenses at the line of scrimmage on game day, or on his iPad during the week, his love for the game hasn’t waned. The final piece of evidence that Manning is as good as ever came Monday. As expected, Manning passed the exam on his surgically repaired neck that was required by his contract with the Broncos that will pay him $20 million next season, according to a person with knowledge of the results. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday because results of medical checkups typically aren’t announced. Manning has said that if doctors tell him he’s at risk physically, he’d have no problem calling it a career. After his four neck procedures, including a spinal fusion that sidelined him for all of 2011 and eventually led to his release from Indianapolis, Manning has said he has steeled himself for that possibility. At the Super Bowl last month, he talked about how his older brother, Cooper, had to give up football after neck surgeries in high school and college, and how that had a big impact on his life. “I remember at the time,

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning gestures before an August 2012 preseason game against the Bears in Chicago. A person with knowledge of the results tells The Associated Press that Manning has passed his physical on his surgically repaired neck, clearing the way for him to play in 2014.

when Cooper got injured, they did a test on me and Eli. I would have been a junior in high school and Eli would have been a sixth-grader, or something. They said our necks weren’t picture perfect and didn’t look ideal, but they’re stable enough to keep playing football. Cooper had to give up playing football. In some ways, when I had my neck problems,

I thought maybe I had been on borrowed time this entire time,” Manning said. “I was fortunate to have 20 years of health to play football. If that was going to be the end of it because of a neck injury, I really, believe it or not, had a peace about it.” Once doctors told him his neck was secure, however, Manning said he quickly

shifted his focus to seeing if he could strengthen his weakened throwing arm to the point where he could be productive again. After the Colts released him, Manning signed a five-year, $96 million deal in Denver, where he’s thrown for 100 TDs, including the playoffs, while going 28-7 with two AFC titles. Manning won his fifth MVP award in 2013, when he set single-season records by passing for 5,547 yards and 55 TDs while guiding the Broncos, the highest-scoring team in NFL history, to their first Super Bowl in 15 seasons. Manning, who will be 38 next season, said during Super Bowl week that he had no intention of retiring after the Super Bowl. Although Manning’s plans for 2014 became a big story line in the playoffs, the Broncos front office had proceeded as though their quarterback would be returning for another run at a title. Although his deal with Denver requires him to pass a physical every spring to make sure his neck is OK, if there were any concerns about his neck, he wouldn’t have started all 16 games, plus three more in the playoffs. Not only is Manning still performing at his peak level, he said he still enjoys everything that goes into getting ready to play on game days and “when you still enjoy the preparation, I think you probably still ought to be doing that,” he said at the Super Bowl. He passed his required exit physical that all players take in the days following the Broncos’ Super Bowl loss to Seattle. He then played in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament just days later, another indication that his neck is fine.


LeBron nets career-high 61, Heat top ’Cats By Tim Reynolds

The Associated Press

MIAMI — Best player. Best game of his career. LeBron James clearly isn’t ready to concede his MVP award to anyone yet. Dazzling from inside and out, James put on the best scoring Heat 124 show of his NBA life Bobcats 107 Monday night, pouring in 61 points — a career high and franchise record — as the Miami Heat beat the Charlotte Bobcats 124-107. It was the eighth straight win for the twotime defending champions, who are starting to roll as the playoffs get near. James made 22 of 33 shots from the field, including his first eight 3-point attempts. “The man above has given me some unbelievable abilities to play the game of basketball,” James said. “I just try to take advantage of it every night. I got the trust of my teammates and my coaching staff to go in there and let it go.” His career best had been 56 points, on March 20, 2005, for Cleveland against Toronto. Glen Rice scored 56 to set the Heat record on April 15, 1995, against Orlando. James had 24 points at halftime, then added 25 in the third quarter. The recordbreaker came with 5:46 left, when James spun through three defenders for a layup that fell as he tumbled to the court. “There was an efficiency to what he was doing,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “The rim looked like an ocean for him.” Spoelstra walked into his postgame news conference with a confession: He nearly took James out after the third quarter. Good thing he thought better of that plan.

Most points in any quarter in Heat history, with the 25 in the third. Most points in the second half, 37, by any Heat player ever. “Once he sniffed 60, we knew he was going for it,” Heat forward Shane Battier The Bobcats’ Chris Douglas-Robert, said. “And the amazing part is the effileft, tries to guard the Heat’s LeBron ciency.

Indians’ John Axford 18-for-18 in Oscars picks The Associated Press

SURPRISE, Ariz. — After converting 49 consecutive saves from 2011 to early 2012, John Axford has another streak going. The Cleveland Indians closer went 18-for-18 on his Academy Awards picks. Axford made the projections after the Indians’ game Sunday on his Facebook page. Last year, Axford was correct on 14 of his 15 Oscar selections; he picked Steven Spielberg as best director for Lincoln and Ang Lee won for Life of Pi. “It was fun,” Axford said Monday. “I was following it online, not even watching it on TV. I was getting updates from people on Twitter. ‘You’re 3-for-3, 5-for-5.’ It was pretty neat. By the time it got 14 for 14, I said, ‘Wow, I picked 14 right last year.’ It definitely

Golson: Coach thinks QB has shot at being starter Continued from Page B-1 still continuing that process of trying to grind and be better.” The Irish are expecting the 6-foot, 200-pound quarterback to be better than he was in 2012, when he helped Notre Dame get to the national championship game by finishing the regular season undefeated for the first time since winning its last national title in 1988. Golson was 187 of 318 passing, a 58.8 completion rate, with 12 touchdown passes and six interceptions as the Irish went 12-1, losing 42-14 to Alabama in the championship game. He also ran for 298 yards on 94 carries. Coach Brian Kelly, who has repeatedly said he expects Malik Zaire to challenge Golson for the starter’s job,

on Monday sounded as though Golson would start. “I think we all know college football and where it is, the quarterback is really going to be the centerpiece of this offense in the way we run. It’s going to fall on him. Today was a very good today for him in a first day,” Kelly said. “We’re going to heap a lot on this kid’s shoulders, and he knows that. That’s why he came back to Notre Dame, because he wants that opportunity. Clearly, he’s going to be the guy that drives this for us.” Golson said that’s the way he wants it. “I want to be in front and have that leadership role and lead these guys to victory,” he said. Golson admitted to being a bit too

eager Monday, blaming that for some inaccurate passes early. But he said he believes he returns to school as a better quarterback because he’s more mature and polished after spending two months training with quarterbacks coach George Whitfield in San Diego. One of the things Whitfield changed about Golson is he now grips the ball. He now has his hands on the laces, like most other quarterbacks, which he previously didn’t. He also weighs 15 pounds heavier than when he left and appears more muscular. Golson said he believes he returns a bit faster and hopes the added muscle will make him more durable. Kelly said the biggest improvement

got a little more intense after that. When it got 16-for-16, I assumed I had it locked.” There are John Axford 24 Oscar categories, and Axford said on Twitter he will predict them all next year. Traded from Milwaukee to St. Louis, Axford left the Cardinals and agreed in December to a $4.5 million, one-year deal with Cleveland, where he will replace Chris Perez as closer. Axford, who was born in Canada, received a Bachelor of Arts degree in film and television from Notre Dame. “I hope he’s as good when it comes to saves,” Indians manager Terry Francona said.

he sees in Golson is a “conceptual awareness” — a better understanding — of the offense. “It’s an easier conversation for him. The best way to explain it would be, when he would explain his progression, it might take him 10 seconds. Well, you’ve got 2.6 seconds to throw the ball,” Kelly said. “Now he’s precise in his communication as to what his progression is. That tells me a lot. He’s definitely made some strides.” Golson said what he missed most last season was working with his teammates. Watching last season’s opener against Temple on television from Chicago was the low point. “That’s when it really hit me, that you’re not there anymore,” he said. “I went through the whole process of

at first feeling humiliated, for one, to then coming back around to where I am now of me being back here and being ready to go.” Golson wouldn’t comment on the reason he was suspended from school for the small semester. He previously told Sports Illustrated in an interview last year it was because of “poor judgment on a test.” He said he’s been welcomed back to campus by teammates and classmates. “I haven’t received any animosity or anything like that. That’s from my classmates, to my professors to my teammates and everything. They’ve been very accepting of me,” he said. Kelly was pleased with how quickly Golson seemed to settle back in. “It was really exciting for me to watch him get back in there and look as though he was with us last year,” he said.

NEW YORK llen DeGeneres’ celebstudded selfie from the most-watched Oscars telecast in a decade was a landmark social media moment at a time online conversation is boosting television viewership and vice versa. It’s also a murky example of what is or isn’t product placement in a hyper-marketed world. Would the world’s most retweeted photo have been shot by an iPhone if Samsung hadn’t been a commercial sponsor of the Academy Awards? An estimated 43 million people watched 12 Years a Slave win the Oscar for best picture on Sunday night. It was the most-watched Academy Awards since 2004, when Lord of the Rings: Return of the King was the best picture. And it was the most popular entertainment event on TV since the Friends finale that year. The Oscars are generally the most-watched TV event of the year after the Super Bowl. The ratings provide further evidence of how big event programming is a growth engine for broadcast networks, in large part because of fans watching the event and conversing with friends on tablets and smartphones. Twitter said that some 14.7 million tweets mentioning the Oscars or prominent actors and films were sent out during the Sunday night telecast, and Facebook said there were 25.4 million interactions about the show. Social media was clearly a driving force Sunday and is why live events on networks “have become basically the currency,” co-producer Neil Meron said. “What it’s all about right now is creating a conversation, and social media allows for the conversation as it’s happening,” he said. No social media moment was bigger than when host DeGeneres briefly caused Twitter to crash after going into the audience and asking Bradley Cooper to take a picture with several other stars crowding around. Besides Cooper and DeGeneres, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Kevin Spacey, Julia Roberts, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt also crowded into the frame. She asked viewers to help her set a retweet record, and they quickly complied. By


Monday afternoon, it had been retweeted some 2.8 million times, shattering the previous record of 810,000 retweets for the photo of President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama hugging after the 2012 election. Twitter was humming at 254,644 tweets per minute after DeGeneres’ request, and the company said the crush disrupted service for 20 minutes. DeGeneres handed a Samsung device to Cooper to take the selfie. Since the Oscars host’s Twitter posts from backstage included shots from an iPhone, Samsung doesn’t seem to be her usual smartphone of choice. Samsung, however, was a big presence at the Oscars besides being a commercial sponsor. The company gave its phones to student presenters and encouraged them to tweet and post on Instagram with them. Dozens of Samsung phones, tablets and TVs were used to make a digital photo display in the backstage green room. ABC said Samsung did not pay specifically for use of the camera in DeGeneres’ selfie segment and the company wasn’t explicitly named on the air as the stunt unfolded, but it is a noticeably larger device than an iPhone. Samsung said Monday that it was donating $1.5 million each to DeGeneres’ favorite charities, St. Jude’s and the Humane Society. The company, in a statement, did not directly address its role in seeing that its phone got the starring role. “Ellen was given a choice of what she wanted to do,” said Oscars co-producer Craig Zadan. Even more spontaneous was that galaxy of stars surrounding Ellen in the selfie shot. It was just supposed to be Streep, Zadan said. A total of 11.3 million people commented on the award via Facebook, the company said. The busiest commenters were women aged 18 to 34, Facebook said, and the one moment that drew the most attention was when 12 Years a Slave won the award for best picture. Jared Leto had his TiVo moment Sunday night. The company said the clip of Leto’s acting in Dallas Buyers Club was a moment when viewers paused their digital video recorders and rewound to see something again more than at any other point in the show.

Subject: MARCH Each answer contains “march.” (e.g., What type of composition is “King Cotton”? Answer: Military march.)

Dear Annie: I’d give anything to be intimate with my wife. We’ve been married for 18 years. We have not made love in more than three. We also don’t hold hands, hug, kiss or cuddle. We have pleasant conversations, and I would classify us as compatible roommates. My wife once had a very active libido, but there was a decline in sexual frequency after the birth of our second child. We had many conversations about it, but she and I both attributed it to crazy schedules and her moderate weight gain. She joined Weight Watchers and lost the weight. In the meantime, I gained 65 pounds. I help out around the house as best I can. I bathe and groom regularly. I went for counseling by myself and then started hinting to her about wanting to resume sex. Last year, I finally asked her why we don’t make love anymore. Her answer stunned me. My weight gain was such that she no longer finds me physically attractive. I thought I was a good person and a good husband. She finally agreed to couples counseling. We went once and things improved for about two weeks, but then her mother’s health declined and everything was put on the back burner. I started going to the gym and lost five pounds, but no more. Our bed is a dead zone. I don’t know whether it’s better to be lonely in a marriage or to be alone. I know we should return to counseling, but between her mother’s health, financial issues, underachieving teenagers and my own depression, I am not seeing the point and no longer believe all of this effort will make any difference. Any suggestions? — Frustrated on the West Coast Dear West Coast: Right now, you don’t have the energy to work on your intimacy issues on top of everything else. And even if you did, your wife might not. Life is full of stressful periods, and you cannot let the overriding problem

in your marriage slide by while you wait for things to settle down. Get back into counseling for your own sake, whether your wife goes or not. It will help you reach clarity about your situation and how to proceed. And please work on your weight to get healthier. You’ll feel better mentally, as well as physically. Dear Annie: A person I know gossips nonstop. She can tell you the latest about everyone in the neighborhood. She also badmouths people behind their backs. She uses the guise of caring to find out whatever she can so she can spread more gossip. She is manipulative and deceitful and uses people to get what she wants, including favors and free rides. Worse, she presents herself as deeply religious. Am I wrong to want as little as possible to do with this woman? — Don’t Know Dear Don’t Know: You do know. This woman sounds toxic. She doesn’t deserve an audience. Avoiding her won’t make her stop gossiping about you or badmouthing you behind your back. But at least you won’t have to listen to the malicious things she says about others, which can color how you perceive them. Dear Annie: I am writing about the letter from “Not the Company’s Bank,” the wife whose husband was not being reimbursed for his business expenses in a timely fashion. I am happy to suggest an easy solution. Hubby should go to the boss or accounting department and ask for a company credit card to be used solely for his business expenses. Instead of needing reimbursement, each month’s bill would be sent directly to the firm. The husband could have a copy in order to break down the expenses by client for billing purposes or to justify a questionable expense. The responsibility for timely payment would be squarely in the firm’s control. — A Former Bookkeeper

On the contrary, I want you to be fully informed. Frequently, the mutual fund choices in these vehicles are sub-par, especially when compared with institutional funds available through advisers. Expense ratios can be high, eating away at investor returns. The numbers are startling. The average actively managed mutual fund — meaning a fund in which a manager is making stock and bond picks — has an annual expense of 1.3 percent. Fees in some can run as high as 2 percent, or even, almost unbelievably, 5 percent.

Even for investors who want to understand the numbers, the statements can be daunting for a layperson to understand. In addition, funds often pay to be made available in a particular plan. It’s similar to the way Coca-Cola or Procter & Gamble pay for shelf space at Albertsons. There’s nothing illegal about this practice, but it can add to the costs for unwitting investors. Of course, in a roaring bull market, or even a sleepy and hated bull market, such as the one we experienced in 2013, nobody complains about expensive mutual funds. “My funds

did well!” I hear that all the time, as if there were some magic that will continue in perpetuity. That brings up another problem: More than three-quarters of active fund managers fail to consistently beat their benchmark in any given year. I realize that not everybody is a stock-market geek (I’ll cop to being one!), so allow me to dissect the previous paragraph. Active managers are those who — as the name suggests — are actively trading stocks and bonds inside mutual funds. They incur

ax season also means scam season, and the IRS is alerting people to be especially careful about giving out personal information this time of year. One caller to The New Mexican reported that she received a telephone inquiry from someone claiming to be IRS officer Sue William and that the taxpayer was in trouble, facing fines for unpaid back taxes. In its publication of “Dirty Dozen” tax scams, the IRS discusses in more detail how this works — as it often involves someone on the phone giving a phony IRS Bruce agent name or Krasnow badge number. “The IRS has Business Matters seen a recent increase in local phone scams across the country, with callers pretending to be from the IRS in hopes of stealing money or identities from victims,” the agency reports. “These phone scams include many variations, ranging from instances where callers say the victims owe money or are entitled to a huge refund. Some calls can threaten arrest and threaten a driver’s license revocation. Sometimes these calls are paired with follow-up calls from people saying they are from the local police department or the state motor vehicle department.” Characteristics of these scams can include: u Scammers using fake names and IRS badge numbers. They generally use common names and surnames to identify themselves. u Scammers may be able to recite the last four digits of a victim’s Social Security number. u Scammers “spoof” or imitate the IRS toll-free number on caller ID to make it appear that it’s the IRS calling. u Scammers sometimes send bogus IRS emails to some victims to support their bogus calls. After threatening victims with jail time or a driver’s license revocation, scammers hang up and others soon call back pretending to be from the local police or DMV, and the caller ID supports their claim. Another common scam is phishing, where an email arrives with a link to a fake website, which tries to gain access to personal information. “It is important to keep in mind the IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email to request personal or financial information. This includes any type of electronic communication, such as text messages and social media channels. The IRS has information online that can help you protect yourself from email scams.” The agency urges those who receive an unsolicited email that appears to be from either the IRS or an organization closely linked to the IRS, such as the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System, to report it by sending it to Those who think they have been subjected to a scam should call the Treasury Inspector General at 800-366-4484. More information on the scams can be found on the website. Contact Bruce Krasnow at brucek@

or Brian Byrnes and the board of the Santa Fe Community Foundation, it’s really quite simple: They are here to grow the communities in Northern New Mexico, not the profits on Wall Street. And so a concept known as impact investing, where assets are invested locally, is a logical move forward for the foundation, which works to strengthen nonprofits and expand services through collaboration, education, training and giving. Impact investing gives the foundation another tool as it works to make a difference, said Byrnes, the community foundation’s president and CEO. “We see this as a beginning, a first step into this area; we want to signal there are ways to have an impact besides grant making,” he said. As the program evolves, Byrnes said it can

Web design firm earns accolade

Santa Fe-based dsire web design has been honored for its redesign of the website. The distinctions came from the Interactive Media Awards as “Best in Class” in both the Television and Nonprofit categories for 2013. Websites are evaluated on five specific criteria, and only those that score 480 or higher out of 500 possible points earn the distinction of “Best in Class.” The Interactive Media Awards recognize the highest standard of excellence in website design and development, honoring individuals and organizations for their outstanding achievement. The awards are judged by the Interactive Media Council, a nonprofit organization of leading Web designers, developers, programmers and advertisers. “It’s an extreme honor to be recognized by leaders in the website design and development industry for the Emmys website, which is a beautiful and

The impact investment movement started in community foundations a decade ago — and one of the first to go forward was the Vermont Brian Community Foundation, Byrnes where Byrnes worked before coming to Santa Fe. The philosophy is to take investment money and loan it out locally with low interest for a set time period, but get a predictable return much like a bond or a fixed-income mutual fund. The Santa Fe Community Foundation is one of the smallest to embrace the concept, said Jon Quinn, the foundation’s donor services and initiatives manager, who has researched the topic. “We are paving the way for small community foundations to do this,” Quinn said.

Average gas price rises in N.M. The statewide average for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel in New Mexico is now $3.30, according to the AAA New Mexico Weekend Gas Watch. That price is 5 cents more than a week ago but 19 cents less per gallon than one year ago. Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in New Mexico, drivers in Santa Fe are paying the most this week at $3.30, and drivers in Albuquerque are paying the least at $3.24. The state average is 14 cents less per gallon than the national average of $3.44. Pump prices have started to exhibit the seasonal increase drivers are familiar with during this time of year. While geopolitical tensions or domestic refinery issues exacerbated this run-up each of the last three years, the absence of such catalysts has resulted

The plan is for the Santa Fe Community Foundation, based on Paseo de Peralta near the Roundhouse, to start small by placing 5 percent of its pooled assets into local impact projects, some $2 million initially. The first loan of $250,000 was made in February to Homewise so the nonprofit housing organization can expand the dollars going to families needing home-improvement loans. The Santa Fe Community Foundation is really a compendium of hundreds of small donor-supported initiatives, many in specific educational or cultural areas where individuals or families want to sustain a passion over generations.

Benefit of the Month: Advocacy

The Chamber is serving as the Voice of Business; representing members at all levels (City, County and State) and working to create an environment that assures your ability to do business.


Business Expo & Job Fair

The Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce is looking forward to a bigger and better Business Expo and Job Fair this year, taking place on April 10th from 10am to 4pm at the DeVargas Center. This will be the 11th year the Chamber has organized this event, which attracts hundreds of attendees and showcases over 90 local businesses. The Business Expo and Job Fair will feature entertainment such as live fitness classes, a fashion show, dance demonstrations, a children’s choir, raffles, an “Ask the Expert” booth allowing attendees to ask questions from professionals such as lawyers, financial advisors, etc., and much more. celebrates the launch of their upcoming workshops at SBDC, located at 6401 South Richards Avenue.

Businesses of all types are showcased throughout the DeVargas Center and are given a tent card saying either “hiring” or “not hiring,” allowing applicants who attend to easily identify which businesses to visit about possible employment. This is a great opportunity for businesses that are looking to hire and meet with applicants face to face; Harbor Freight conducted their interviews at last year’s event and both REI and Buffalo Wild Wings hired at past Expos. Past Expos have featured businesses such as hospitality, insurance, financial services, technology, real estate, healthcare, security, personal services, fashion, retail, media and not-for-profits.

BUSINESS MATTERS After the election dust has settled and our new mayor has assembled a team to implement their plan of work, we will still be living in a community with a flat growth rate and the majority of people who work in Santa Fe commuting and taking their pay checks home to spend elsewhere. We have a few sectors where job growth is expected, but in general we remain dependent on government and tourism to sustain the local economy. There has been much conversation recently about retaining and recruiting youth to the community but this will only occur if there are jobs available to match the skills and talent that we have. This is true whether the jobs are blue collar, technical, service oriented or in the creative industries. It is very unlikely that Santa Fe will be able to recruit any large employers- our incentive

programs are simply not competitive – so we have to focus our resources and energies on smaller businesses, individual operators and retaining the entrepreneurs that we have. We have new councilors, a new mayor and a new opportunity to make local job creation a priority and to support the local economy at every level. A clear strategy and plan is needed to celebrate our local entrepreneurs and to develop the talent we have as well as to shop locally wherever possible to help create prosperity, diversify our economy and grow businesses that bring in new revenue into the community.

ew Mexico residents turn increasingly to digital resources when seeking out all types of information. According to the most recent (2013) annual Garrity Perception Survey, New Mexicans use television as a news and information source 58 percent of the time, newspapers 39 percent of the time and Internet news sites 29 percent of the time. Those sources are followed by radio (28 percent), Internet blogs (17 percent) and social networking sites (17 percent). When Internet news sources, blogs and social media are combined, New Mexico residents turn to digital sources 63 percent of the time, surpassing television. Having an active presence in digital media gives an organization relevance. A business’s digital outreach can be as simple as a basic retail website, or it can cover multiple bases with a Facebook page, Twitter account, interactive blog and email marketing. Deciding how far to go with social media technology depends on the business type, available resources and how digital outreach fits into the company’s strategic plan and vision. Some business owners are intimidated

by social media or overwhelmed by the number of platforms and technological requirements. But every social network or platform represents a business opportunity — a chance to engage existing customers and attract new ones. Each is a tool with a specific function and features that a business can leverage, but only if it’s used intentionally and in sync with an overarching strategic plan. Whatever the scope of its outreach and whatever platforms it uses, a business should speak with one voice in its digital messaging, and messages should be consistent and reflective of the company’s culture and target audience’s expectations. When developing a digital outreach plan, the company’s core team should decide how the voice should “sound.” A law firm, for example, might want to sound serious and competent, while a children’s book publisher might take a playful tone. Content should be tailored to each digital site to make the most of what each offers. Twitter lends itself to short announcements, while networks like Pinterest and YouTube leave room for videos, photos and graphics. While the company’s message is shaped by the medium that delivers it, the mate-

rial should echo the business’s distinctive voice and reinforce the desired message. A digital media program that is sporadic and irrelevant can do more damage than not having a digital presence at all. Active engagement is the first rule in this fastpaced space. Monitoring and responding to customer feedback when necessary is the second rule, as a review could help or hurt your business. Social media platforms won’t help a business if web content is outdated, the website doesn’t work or the email account isn’t monitored. Someone needs to develop and oversee content and keep the company’s face looking fresh. If the business can’t do this work with internal resources, an external service provider can help with online strategy, website construction, training, planning, market analysis and monitoring.

Investment: Foundation has another $1.5 million to deploy Continued from Page C-1 and supportive care,” according to the foundation’s website. But to fund these efforts, the foundation invests its donated dollars, spending the earnings while maintaining the core principal for future philanthropy. Many small donors who want to establish a philanthropic legacy turn to the foundation not only for its expertise in managing programs but for investment expertise as well. “Donors put their money with us because they trust us, so we have to do this very well,” Byrnes said. And so, if impact Jon investing is to replace the Quinn simple purchase of government bonds, there has to be due diligence and financial surety. The initial efforts will be with existing nonprofit organizations with an established track record, with more impact investments growing gradually. Quinn said $61 billion is managed by community foundations nationwide, and some impact projects include: u The Cleveland Foundation investing $3 million in an initiative to develop worker-owned cooperative businesses. u The Denver Foundation investing $7.5 million for energy efficient upgrades in a tenant-owned building. u The Napa Valley Foundation allocating $500,000 for the purchase of a power plant at a local hospital. In Santa Fe, the Homewise loan program assists low- and middle-income families so they can hire contractors for needed repairs such as stucco, roofing, heating and ventilation. It serves all qualified homeowners, not just those who purchased through Homewise. The program has advantages, as closing costs and interest rates may be lower than through a traditional bank or credit union, and the loan proceeds go directly to the project contractor. Homewise has 120 outstanding loans, and the Santa Fe Community Foundation

Homewise is using a loan from the Santa Fe Community Foundation to expand its program offering loans for roof and other home-improvement projects. INSIGHT FOTO INC.

This is a big deal for us. It’s the first time a foundation in New Mexico has done it.” Mike Loftin, executive director of Homewise, on the Santa Fe Community Foundation’s impact investing

investment could mean another 16 families receiving loan money, which will then ripple through the economy with construction jobs and gross receipts tax spending. “This is a big deal for us. It’s the first time a foundation in New Mexico has done it,” said Mike Loftin, executive director of Homewise. “Our big challenge is raising capital to meet the needs. We’ve raised a lot of money from banks and banks have been good, but this gives another way for philanthropic people to invest in these programs and invest for a return.” Joohee Rand, a Harvard-educated MBA who directs strategic initiatives at the Santa Fe Community Foundation, is the point person for making sure results meet certain benchmarks. In the Homewise program, for instance, she wants to not only guarantee the money is loaned to families of modest means at reasonable terms and then repaid, but that it helps build financial security by boosting home equity and per-

haps credit scores. Kenneth Romero, a vice president of New Mexico Bank and Trust in Santa Fe who sits on the foundation board, said nonprofits can borrow from a bank, but the foundation is in a position to be more flexible with loan terms and fees, and more creative in its approach. Plus, impact investing brings more capital into Santa Fe at a time when banks might be limited. “We have another $1.5 million to deploy, we’ve set that aside, and it’s open to investors,” Romero said. He hopes some of that can be used to leverage capital from other sources so the foundation can collaborate with the private sector or a nonprofit. “It creates this synergy,” he said. There are challenges with a new initiative, and many needs in Santa Fe that the foundation wants to tackle — building economic opportunities for low-income individuals, helping families who struggle with cash flow — may be difficult. And there are always venture capitalists with good ideas but who are not prepared for an infusion of capital. “How do you deploy capital in neighborhoods that don’t have an investment history?” asks Byrnes. Still, he calls philanthropy “the R and D of social change.” “There’s a lot of experimentation going on in the world of philanthropy, there are many things emerging all the time,” he said. “There’s enormous need and enormous potential for creativity.” Contact Bruce Krasnow at brucek@

Finances: On 401(k), don’t depend on luck Continued from Page C-1 trading fees for moving these investments around. Guess who pays the fee? Yes, that’s a rhetorical question. You know that answer already. Furthermore, we have decades of market data that clearly show the unpredictability of asset-class returns. In other words, just because U.S. large-cap stocks were a leading asset class one year, they are not somehow destined to perform as well the following year. Investors who owned the S&P 500 in 2013 are understandably happy with their returns. But to assume that an S&P index fund is some kind of lucky rabbit’s foot is completely misplaced. For a fund manager whose benchmark is the S&P 500, 2013 was a jackpot year. But winning streaks end. Fund performance has less to do with manager talent than with normal rotations of sectors and asset classes.

If all your investments are moving in the same direction at the same time, you have a bet, not an allocation. Think of it this way: If all your investments are moving in the same direction at the same time, you have a bet, not an allocation. So for 401(k) investors, it’s imperative to use caution when selecting allocations. I realize that the choices are often limited, but allocating among different asset classes will give you the best opportunity to capture gains where they occur. This is where individual investors are at

a disadvantage. It’s not easy to understand the proper weightings within your retirement portfolio. Most people just get exasperated and check a few boxes that sound good. Large-cap U.S.? Sure, that sounds good! I’ll take that! If you have choices, it’s better to allocate than to dump everything into one or two asset classes that sound promising or that did well last year. These are just a few cautionary notes about employer-sponsored plans. It’s definitely a good idea to stash money into one of these accounts, but be cognizant about the fees and the mix of assets you’re using.
