District intends to dole out money based on student needs, not staffing ratios By Robert Nott The New Mexican

Santa Fe Public Schools may or may not get more money from the state to operate its schools. But it wants to spend what it does get more wisely. The district is planning a new method for allocating funds based on the needs of the students enrolled in each school. The effort is called Fair Student Funding, and the district hopes to try it out in some schools next year, with plans to go districtwide in 2015-16. “We will take our district dollars and distribute them to schools based on numerous factors [related to] student needs,” Superintendent Joel Boyd said. Educators call this approach “weighted student funding.” Instead of allocating money to

Leaders reach deal to limit Iran’s nuclear capabilities Obama hails agreement as an ‘important first step’ By Deb Riechmann and George Jahn The Associated Press

GENEVA — Iran struck a historic nuclear deal Sunday with the United States and five other world powers, in the most significant development between Washington and Tehran in more than three decades of estrangement between the two nations. The agreement commits Iran to curb its nuclear activities in exchange for limited and gradual sanctions relief. It builds on the momentum of the dialogue opened during September’s annual U.N. gathering, which included a 15-minute phone conversation between President Barack Obama and Iran’s new president, Hassan Rouhani. Obama hailed the deal’s provisions as key to preventing Iran from proliferating. “Simply put, they cut off Iran’s most likely paths to a bomb,” he told reporters. The deal marks a milestone between the

World watching as Mora County steps up to defend its anti-drilling ordinance By Staci Matlock The New Mexican

MORA t is a script destined for a Hollywood movie: A rural, lowincome, mostly Hispanic New Mexico county passes a community rights ordinance, bans oil and gas drilling, and is sued by rich, greedy oil and gas barons. “We’re protecting our water,” say two Mora County commissioners


who support the ordinance. “It’s unconstitutional,” cry the Independent Petroleum Producers of New Mexico and a couple of private property owners who are suing over the ordinance. Their lawsuit was filed Nov. 15 in federal District Court. People around the U.S. and the world who are deeply concerned about the influence of big corporations and the potential environmental damage from hydraulic

fracturing methods — used to tap oil and gas supplies — cheer on Mora County. But there’s more to this story — nuances and tensions that are hard to uncover unless you were born and raised in this hard-scrabble, beautiful and resilient Northern New Mexico county. Most Mora County residents oppose oil and gas drilling. But some of them say there were better ways to prevent drilling, strategies

that had a better chance of standing up in court. They believe the ban was an ill-advised move that will have high costs for an already cash-strapped county government and will gain it nothing except attention. Others say the ordinance is an example of an outside Anglo group using a poor, minority county for its own ends.

Winter storm rages across West, killing 8 4-year-old N.M. girl among dead; more severe weather expected By Susan Montoya Bryan The Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE — A powerful storm system that has caused hundreds of accidents across the Western U.S. has marched eastward with predictions of widespread snow, freezing

temperatures and gusty winds. The fierce weather has caused at least eight deaths, including one in New Mexico, and prompted advisories Saturday afternoon in New Mexico and Texas. As thick, gray clouds covered the Southwest, forecasters said the storm would sweep across the South and toward the Atlantic Coast next week, causing problems for holiday travelers. Joe Harris, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said the “Nordic outbreak” will

“produce a mixed bag of wily weather that will end up impacting much of the nation.” In New Mexico, authorities and residents braced for the second hit of a one-two punch — what forecasters in Albuquerque called the “big kahuna.” The storm already had blanketed parts of the state with snow and freezing rain and caused a rollover accident that killed a 4-year-old girl in the eastern part of the state.

NATION&WORLD Latvian president: Collapse is ‘murder’ Third section of market roof caves in during rescue effort; death toll reaches 54 By Gary Peach The Associated Press

RIGA, Latvia — A massive third section of the roof at a Latvian supermarket where at least 54 people were killed fell Saturday as emergency workers searched rubble nearby for more victims. Though no one was injured, the cave-in revealed just how unstable the building still is two days after the initial collapses. Latvia’s president described the disaster at the Maxima supermarket in Riga, the worst accident in the Baltic country since it regained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, as “murder” and called for a speedy investigation into its cause. Investigators are looking at faulty construction or building work on the roof’s grass- and gravel-covered surface as the potential causes of the first collapse in the crowded supermarket on Thursday. Workers were installing a garden area and children’s playground for an adjacent high-rise residential building. Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman Viktorija Sembele said the third collapse occurred in an area where firefighters were not working, but the service immediately recalled its people from inside to ensure there were no casualties. The service tweeted minutes later that no one was injured. The dramatic cave-in came as rescue workers were finishing their search operation in a particularly dangerous part of the building, Sembele said. The operation has been temporarily stopped. Associated Press video of the scene showed a large portion of the roof crashing in as rescuers worked nearby. A massive boom can be heard as the section hits the ground in a cloud of dust. President Andris Berzins spoke bluntly about the disaster in an interview with Latvian television, though he did not single anyone out as culpable. “This is a case where we need to say clearly it is the murder of an enormous number of defenseless people, and that’s how we

Most people taking free online courses worldwide are among the best-educated and wealthiest of the population, casting doubt on the idea that the classes will benefit the disenfranchised, a survey showed. More than half of those taking massive open online courses, or MOOCs, were men, and the majority were already employed, according to Ezekiel Emanuel, vice provost for Global Initiatives at the University of Pennsylvania and one of the authors of the cor-

should proceed,” Berzins said in an interview with Latvian television. Berzins called for a speedy investigation to prevent those responsible from covering up a paper trail and “coming off as pure as angels.” Pictures show that a large amount of building materials, including bags of soil for the garden, were left in areas of the roof that Riga city officials say could have been vulnerable to heavy loads. Fifty-four deaths had been confirmed from the structural failure by Saturday afternoon. Police spokesman Dairis Anucins said earlier that there were reports of 10 missing people, and it was not clear if the new death toll included any of them. Laila Rieksta-Riekstina, head of the state’s child welfare department, told Latvia Radio that 16 children lost parents in the accident. Three of them lost both parents. Some 40 people were injured, including 13 firefighters who rushed to the scene, and

respondence piece in Wednesday’s journal Nature. The survey of about 35,000 participants in more than 200 countries is one of the first to look at who is taking the classes. It shows a disparity between actual users and those that MOOC founders have said may benefit from putting college curriculum online, Emanuel said. More efforts are needed, including better access to technology, electricity and basic education, to help the disadvantaged gain access, he said. “If you are privileged, you already have access to computers,” Emanuel said in a telephone interview Wednesday. “The ‘have-nots’ are not going to have access to this. It’s not so easy to shorten that barrier. Maybe over the next 10 to 20 years that will go down but, for the moment,

23 people remained hospitalized as of Saturday afternoon, police said. The government declared three days of mourning starting Saturday. Latvians streamed to the site in a densely populated neighborhood between downtown Riga and the airport to lay flowers and light candles. The Fire and Rescue Service has said only 850 square feet of debris remained to be searched as of late Saturday afternoon, but they said it was a difficult section with rubble piled up to 12 feet high. Rescue workers had stopped the operation early Saturday to consult with engineers before continuing. Police have launched an investigation, which could take several weeks to complete. Riga Mayor Nils Usakovs tweeted Saturday that once the investigation is over, the supermarket’s ruins would be razed and a monument built to the victims. He also suggested that the incomplete residential building might be torn down.

MOOCs are likely to increase disparities in-country.” The authors looked at 34,779 responses from a University of Pennsylvania survey in July of students in 32 course sessions. The classes were offered by Coursera Inc., a venture-capitalbacked, for-profit company started by two Stanford University professors offering more than 500 courses. They found that 83 percent of the students already had a twoyear or four-year college degree, and the majority had education levels exceeding the general population in their country, including both developing and nondeveloping nations. In Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, where there is a rising middle class with increasing education standards and where

many families can’t afford to send their children to universities outside their home country, almost 80 percent of students taking the courses were among the wealthiest and best educated 6 percent of the population, according to the survey. “If we’re going to make these available, there’s a lot of work that has to be done,” Emanuel said. “We can’t just throw this up on the Web and assume goodness will happen.” Dozens of universities have been joining partnerships over the last few years to put courses online for free.

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — Police on New York’s Long Island say a deli owner and his son are under arrest for scamming a customer out of a $1 million lottery ticket. Nassau County police say a 34-year-old man bought the ticket Thursday, scratched it off and saw that he was a winner. Authorities say he then handed it to 26-year-old Karim Jaghab to collect his winnings. Police say the ticket was worth $1 million, but Jaghab gave the man $1,000 in cash and kept the ticket. The customer went back Friday. Police say Jaghab and his 57-year-old father, Nabil Jaghab, tried to give him $10,000. The Jaghabs were arraigned Saturday on grand larceny charges. According to Newsday, their attorney said it was a simple mistake on a payout on a lottery machine.

BEIRUT — Syrian Reconciliation Minister Ali Haidar’s car came under fire Saturday near the coastal area of Tartous, Syrian activists and state media reported, but he was not in the vehicle at the time of the ambush. Syria’s state television said Haidar’s driver was killed. An eye specialist by training, Haider is the leader of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party, one of the Damascus-based opposition parties tolerated by the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. He was appointed minister in 2012. Haider’s son was killed last year when his car was ambushed by rebels in the central province of Homs. Elsewhere in Syria, extremist rebels from the Islamic Army group and the al-Qaida-linked alNusra Front have taken control of a major oil field in the eastern province of Deir al-Zour, an opposition watchdog said.

Egypt expels Turkish ambassador, downgrades ties CAIRO — Egypt downgraded diplomatic relations with Turkey on Saturday and expelled its ambassador from Cairo, a sharp escalation in tensions between the two countries that mounted after a military coup ousted the country’s Islamist president this summer. In a quick reaction, Turkey reciprocated by declaring the Egyptian ambassador “persona non grata” and downgrading relations with Egypt to the same level. Egypt’s ambassador hadn’t been in the country since August over the turmoil. Saturday’s decisions, which fall short of closing diplomatic missions in the two countries, are a dramatic reversal of the warming relations between the two countries over the past year. Egypt’s interim government vehemently has protested remarks by Turkish leaders criticizing the popularly backed military coup that toppled Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. The decision Saturday followed another critical comment by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday. Speaking to reporters in the Black Sea coastal city of Trabzon, Erdogan appeared unfazed by the diplomatic snub. He said there would be no shift in his position toward Egypt’s new rulers. “I will never have respect for those who come to power through coups,” Erdogan said Saturday.

Surfer killed by shark off coast of Australia PERTH, Australia — A 35-year-old surfer was fatally mauled by a shark Saturday off a notorious stretch of Australia’s west coast, police said. The shark “bounced off the board” of one surfer “before attacking the other male” off a beach near Gracetown, said Western Australia state police Sgt. Norm Giocas. The sleepy community of Gracetown has now been the site of three fatal shark attacks on surfers in the past decade. Surfers also were killed there in 2004 and 2010. The victim, whose identity was not immediately released while police notified relatives, died instantly from massive injuries, Giocas said, adding that beachgoers brought his body ashore.

Deadlock on climate ends with meager deal By Karl Ritter The Associated Press

WARSAW, Poland — Avoiding a last-minute breakdown, annual U.N. climate talks limped forward Saturday with a modest set of decisions meant to pave the way for a new pact to fight global warming. More than 190 countries agreed in Warsaw to start preparing “contributions” for the new deal, which is supposed to be adopted in 2015. That term was adopted after China and India objected to the word commitments in a standoff with the U.S. and other developed countries. The fast-growing economies say they are still developing countries and shouldn’t have to take on as strict commitments to cut carbon emissions as industrialized nations. “In the nick of time, negotiators in Warsaw delivered just enough to keep things moving,” said Jennifer Morgan of the World Resources Institute, an environmental think tank. The conference also advanced a program to reduce deforestation and established a “loss and damage” mechanism to help island states and other vulnerable countries under threat from

Negotiators in Warsaw should have used this meeting to take a big and critical step towards global, just action on climate change. That didn’t happen. This has placed the negotiations towards a global agreement in 2015 at risk.”

Samantha Smith, climate activist at the World Wildlife Fund rising seas, extreme weather and other climate impacts. The wording was vague enough to make rich countries feel comfortable that they weren’t going to be held liable for climate catastrophes in the developing world. U.S. and other rich countries also resisted demands to put down firm commitments on how they plan to fulfill a pledge to scale up climate financing to developing countries to $100 billion by 2020. That money is meant to help developing countries transition to cleaner energy sources and adapt to shifts in climate that can affect agriculture,

human health and economies in general. “I think we had a good outcome in the end. It was quite a tough negotiation,” U.S. climate envoy Todd Stern said. The U.N. climate talks were launched two decades ago after scientists warned that humans were warming the planet by pumping carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases into the atmosphere, primarily through the burning of fossil fuels. So far, they’ve failed to reduce those emissions. Historically, most emissions have come from the industrialized nations,

but the developing world is catching up fast, driven by rapid growth in major countries including India, Brazil and China — the world’s top carbon polluter. Though China has invested heavily in renewable sources, it’s reluctant to promise emissions cuts internationally because it still gets almost 70 percent of its energy from coal, which produces the highest emissions of all fuels. The talks were paralyzed for hours Saturday until China and India dropped demands for a reference to an article in the 1992 U.N. convention on climate change that says only developed countries are required to make commitments to cut emissions. Western countries want to get rid of that “firewall” in the new climate deal, which countries have agreed should be applicable to all. “In my understanding the firewall exists and it will continue to exist,” Indian Environment Minister Jayanthi Natarajan said, indicating the issue is far from resolved. The Warsaw conference called on parties to announce their offers to rein in or cut emissions by the first quarter of 2015 if they are “in a position to do

Ariz. debacle spotlights child-welfare agencies By Bob Christie and Brian Skoloff The Associated Press

PHOENIX — A scandal in which 6,000 child-abuse complaints in Arizona were filed away and never investigated illustrated what advocates say is a tragically common problem across the U.S.: Many childprotection agencies have crushing workloads and inadequate oversight. In some cases, those flaws have led to deaths and criminal charges against social workers. “This is a system that years ago was dubbed a poor system for poor people, and very often the resources are not there to do this very difficult and very important work,” said Dr. Howard Dubowitz, a pediatrician who studies child protection policies at the University of Maryland Medical Center. “The notion that this is a system that is nicely equipped to fulfill its mandate is often a dream that some of us are hanging onto.” Arizona officials promised prompt action after it was disclosed Thursday that over the past four years, a team at the state Child Protective Services agency tried to cope with the heavy workload by overlooking thousands of complaints to the statewide child-abuse hotline. Under state law, all reports


generated via the hotline must be investigated. So far, authorities re-examining the cases have identified at least 125 in which children were later alleged to have been abused. No deaths have been connected to the lapses. Clarence Carter, who as director of Arizona’s Department of Economic Security oversees CPS, called the situation “cause for grave alarm,” and Gov. Jan Brewer has ordered an investigation. Child-welfare advocates said the Arizona debacle is not an isolated incident. In North Carolina, a county social worker faces nearly four years in prison after pleading guilty to trying to cover up her agency’s role after a child’s death. Prosecutors said that after the 2011 death of 15-month-old Aubrey Kina-Marie Littlejohn, social worker Candice Lassiter ordered a subordinate to falsify records to make it appear that the Swain County Department of Social Services had done a thorough job investigating allegations that the girl had been abused.

federal oversight in 2008 after it was accused of failing to protect children from abuse and neglect. A report last month by federal monitors found some improvements but noted more still needed to be done. In Arizona, CPS has long suffered from what defenders say is understaffing and overwork. The number of abuse and neglect reports requiring investigation has risen 16 percent in the five years ending in March, according to the agency, while the number of children in foster care or other out-of-home oversight has surged from about 9,000 to nearly 15,000. Meanwhile, the number of CPS workers has remained flat.



tion found that police and social workers were aware of reports that the child was being mistreated but failed to act in time. Florida’s Department of Children and Families has long been plagued by problems blamed on heavy caseloads, high staff turnover, lack of accountability and inadequate funding. Last year, the agency overhauled its own abuse hotline, which receives more than 400,000 calls a year, after problems were discovered with how information was collected and passed on to investigators, often without information about multiple calls on the same cases. Lawmakers there are still grappling with how to fix the agency in light of the recent deaths of nine children monitored by DCF. In May, the Florida agency fired an investigator who authorities say forged documents about substance treatment for a mother months before her baby was left to die in a sweltering car. The agency’s chief abruptly resigned in July. The Michigan Human Services Department came under

so.” But it gave little detail on what kind of information should go into those offers. “Unfortunately, they failed to agree on what process and criteria they would use to evaluate the adequacy and fairness of each other’s proposed actions,” said Alden Meyer of the Union of Concerned Scientists. It also remains unclear what legal form the agreement should take. Environmental activists, many of whom walked out of the talks in protest on Thursday, called the conference a failure for failing to deliver strong commitments to address climate change, and pointed to Typhoon Haiyan’s devastation in the Philippines as a sign of urgency. A single typhoon or hurricane cannot be conclusively linked to climate change but rising sea levels can make storm surges stronger. “Negotiators in Warsaw should have used this meeting to take a big and critical step towards global, just action on climate change. That didn’t happen,” said Samantha Smith, a climate activist at the World Wildlife Fund. “This has placed the negotiations towards a global agreement in 2015 at risk.”

A friend had told him “the company” was fencing, and if he didn’t go quickly, they would fence right though his property. “How sad would it be if I didn’t protect the land now?” asked Rivera, who supports the county’s community rights ordinance that bans oil and gas drilling. Mora County encompasses 1,933 square miles of mountain valleys, treelined hills and grass-covered plains. It is ranch and farm country blessed with clear mountain streams and abundant wildlife. The White Peak area in the northeastern part of the county is a popular elk-hunting spot. The history of the area stretches back to the Jicarilla Apache, who lived there prior to the arrival of Spanish settlers, then French trappers and, finally, Anglo ranchers. In 1835, the Mexican government granted a few dozen families 827,000 acres as the Mora Land Grant. Most of the land was held in common by the families, who shared the water and resources. The valley was booming as travelers thronged the Santa Fe Trail. At one point, the Mora Valley was a major producer of wheat for the area. Mora County was founded in 1860. But by the time Rivera’s great-grandfather stopped the fence, a good portion of the land grant had been taken away from the original grantees through legal shenanigans and outright swindles, according to Paula Garcia, a Mora County commissioner and president of the Mora Land Grant Association. Her family was among the original grantees. Some Hispanic families were able to retain land after a decades-long court battle, she said. “It is still a raw memory, at least in oral history,” Garcia said. “It is not taught in history books. There is a sense that we fought to protect Mora, to keep our connection to the land. Some people in Mora actually revolted, as they did in other parts of New Mexico.” “There is a strong history of resistance in the valley,” she added. That history provided the backdrop for a Pennsylvania attorney to convince some Mora County residents and two county commissioners to approve an ordinance that bans oil and gas extraction. The measure tests a U.S. Supreme Court decision and challenges state and federal powers.

Oil and gas industry sets sights on Mora The county’s estimated 2012 population was 4,700, according to the U.S. census. More than half speak Spanish at home, and more than 86 percent have at least a high school education. “We have 2.5 people per square mile. We qualify as frontier,” according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, said County Commission Chairman John Olivas, a longtime outfitter whose family has lived in the county for generations. “We would have to double our population to be considered rural.” Jobs are hard to come by. The primary employment is local government, the schools, the Mora Valley Health Services and the rural electric cooperative. The county budget is less than $1 million. Oil and gas producers have had their eyes on Mora County since at least the 1950s. A whole slew of leases were signed in 1952 between mostly Hispanic landowners, the Continental Oil and Transportation Co. and F.H. Gower Co.

Apparently, few of the leases were acted on. For almost half a century, there was a lull, according to Mora County clerk filings. Then in 2009 and 2010, KHL Inc. and other companies negotiated dozens of oil and gas lease deals with Mora County property owners. To date, an estimated 100,000 acres have been leased, mostly in the eastern half of the county. Of the 36 private-property oil and gas leases filed with the clerk in 2009 and 2010, 14 were with families who had Hispanic surnames. Their Mora County properties range from a few hundred acres to several thousand. Oil and gas leases for more than 9,000 acres of state trust land in the area near White Peak were approved by former State Land Commissioner Patrick Lyons before the end of his term in 2010. Revenues from oil and gas leases on state trust lands are distributed to local schools and hospitals. Oil and gas proponents argue that drilling would bring much-needed revenue into Mora County. Neighboring Colfax County collected at least half a million dollars last year in taxes on oil and gas operations. But Rivera said the money wouldn’t matter if oil and gas extraction polluted Mora County’s precious water supplies.

Mora County encompasses 1,933 square miles of mountain valleys, tree-lined hills and grass-covered plains. In an effort to protect the valley’s resources, the county passed an ordinance banning hydraulic fracturing, but it was sued over the measure earlier this month.

Same goal, but different approaches Paula Garcia and John Olivas have a lot in common. Both were born and raised in Mora County, and their families have lived there for generations. Both have been active in advocating to protect land and water, not just in Mora County but around the state. Both oppose oil and gas drilling in Mora County. But they differed on how to stop it. They were both elected to the County Commission in 2010. They worked together to unravel a financial nightmare involving the county’s courthouse complex. An audit found more than a dozen problems with the way money from a 2004 bond election had been mishandled by previous county administrations. The complex is still a shell, and all the county offices are housed in dilapidated portables that are freezing in the winter and hot in the summer, Olivas said. The county still needs millions of dollars to complete the project. Plus, the county has had to take over the ambulance service, which loses thousands of dollars a year trying to take care of people in the isolated county. Now, there’s the lawsuit over the oil and gas ordinance. “We’re trying to figure out how to fund our ambulance service. We’re trying to figure out how to finish the county complex,” said Garcia, who also is the executive director of the New Mexico Acequia Association that works with irrigators statewide. “This legal battle makes that work much more difficult.” Garcia said the commissioners and others in the community were working on an oil and gas ordinance back in 2011, reviewing the regulations other communities had put in place. Mora County put a moratorium on oil and gas drilling to buy time. Kathleen Dudley of the organization Drilling Mora County had been working on the issue even before that and hired the New Mexico Environmental Law Center to advise the group on a strong ordinance. Her group also found money to have some of the county’s wells tested to start a base line for water quality in case oil and gas companies began drilling. They had watched Santa Fe County approve one of the most restrictive zoning regulations in the nation at the time to discourage oil and gas drilling. That ordinance didn’t ban drilling, and it has

‘How sad would it be if I didn’t protect the land now?’ says Mora County Planning and Development Manager Marino Rivera, who supports the county’s community rights ordinance that bans oil and gas drilling.

The group Mora Democracy School held a meeting at Mora High School on Thursday about the county’s ordinance banning oil and gas drilling.

yet to be challenged in court. Then Dudley heard about a Pennsylvania attorney, Thomas Linzey, who co-founded the nonprofit Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund shortly after graduating from law school in 1995. He also co-founded Democracy Schools, which offers seminars about how local communities can assert themselves. When he came to Mora to speak, Dudley, Olivas and others thought he made a lot of sense. Suddenly, the talk of preventing oil and gas drilling through a tightly written zoning regulation shifted to something entirely different, some observers say. And it got the county sued.

A test case Linzey and the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund created a model ordinance, later tweaked by dozens of communities across the nation, including Mora. It’s being used to fight against factory farms and hydraulic fracturing. Essentially, the ordinances all say the same thing: People have an inalienable right to self-government, and that right can’t be superseded by corporations. The ordinance challenges U.S. Supreme Court decisions dating to the 1800s that recognize corporations as having many of the same rights as citizens. It also recognizes rights for ecosystems and calls for seceding from any governments (federal, state, county) that attempt to pre-empt or change the ordinance. It’s hard to repeal the ordinance. Instead of a simple majority vote of the County Commission, it requires a unanimous vote of the commission and approval by three-quarters of voters. Garcia said when the community rights ordinance was presented to the commission April 29, it was with the understanding that it was an up-ordown vote. Olivas and Commissioner Alfonso Griego voted in favor of it, making Mora the first county in the nation to approve the ordinance. Garcia was the sole vote against it. She said, “The reason I didn’t support the ordinance in April is that I wasn’t sure the majority of people knew the county was going to be used as a test case — not on an oil and gas fracking ban, but on the question of corporate personhood. I’m not in favor of fracking, but the language of the ordinance gave me pause.” Her vote was misinterpreted as being in favor of fracking, she said, which has been difficult, given that she has long been “deeply connected to the land and water.” Garcia thinks there were better strategies available that could have prevented drilling but reduced the chances of the county getting sued. Olivas, however, points out that a strict zoning regulation, like Santa Fe’s, requires oil and gas companies to jump through a lot of legal hoops — but in the end, they can drill. Unlike Rivera, Olivas believes the county can win this fight. “Why is it wrong for citizens of Mora County to

say no to corporations?” he asked. “I think the ordinance is defensible.” On Nov. 15, the county was sued in federal District Court by the trade group Independent Petroleum Producers of New Mexico, the Mountain States Legal Foundation, landowner Mary L. Vermillion, the JAY Land Ltd. Co., and Yates Ranch Property. The lawsuit claims the Mora County ordinance violates their rights under the First, Fifth and 14th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. “My feeling is, regardless of how you stand on the oil and gas issue, the idea that the County Commission has the right to nullify constitutional rights is insane. And that’s what this ordinance proposes to do,” said Vermillion, an attorney who owns less than an acre of land in Mora County’s Ojo Feliz.

Divided over tactics Dudley and others are working to get other New Mexico towns and counties to pass a similar community rights ordinance. But some longtime community activists are upset with the group’s tactics and think their efforts are misguided. “Our communities are tired of being used, whether it is by the liberals or the corporations,” said Sofia Martinez, president of the 13-year-old Concerned Citizens of Wagon Mound and Mora County. “What is the difference?” Martinez and her group fought and won two court cases to keep the Northeastern New Mexico Regional Landfill from obtaining a permit to put waste on private land. They’ve protected the community’s water rights all the way to the New Mexico Supreme Court. “I personally attend most of the Mora County Commission meetings, and many of us are appalled at the nontransparency, unethical practices [that] have become common practice” since January, she wrote in an email. “If you know all the other problems in the poorest county in the state, why would you do something that will get you sued?” she asked in an interview. While she credits Dudley with having excellent organizing skills, Martinez thinks the group now is getting used by the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund, to Mora County’s detriment. “CELDF is clear they want this to be challenged all the way to the high court. That is fine. Just don’t use us to do it,” Martinez said. Rivera said those supporting the ordinance knew Mora County would get sued, but he felt it was worth the fight. “The ban is unconstitutional. I think we all knew that going in. CELDF was very upfront about that,” he said. “But we all felt that we were going to get the raw end of the stick anyway. We’re going to get screwed anyway, so let’s at least make a statement.”

Battle lines drawn Garcia said despite her misgivings about the ordinance, she’ll stand with the county now in the fight. “At this point, I will be supportive

Storm: Warning in effect for much of the state through Monday Continued from Page A-1 “The state’s going to get pounded by a good dose of rain, a little bit of sleet and a lot of snow in the higher elevations. Even the lower elevations Saturday night are going to pick up snow,” said meteorologist Chuck Jones. The system is expected to bring widespread snow through the rest of the weekend, with as much as 3 feet on some mountain peaks and several inches in the lower elevations. High temperatures in some parts will reach only the single digits, and the wind is expected to continue to howl through the valleys and canyons. A winter storm warning will remain in effect for much of the state through Monday. The first wave of wintry weather resulted in some difficult driving conditions along Interstate 25 and other highways in New Mexico on Friday. In Roosevelt County, state police reported the state’s first weather-

related fatality — a girl from Clovis. State Police Sgt. Emmanuel Gutierrez said 4-year-old Esmeralda Trejo died Friday when her family’s car started to slide across U.S. 70. The vehicle traveled across the traffic lanes and overturned on the shoulder. Trejo was not wearing a seat belt and was killed. The driver, front passenger and another child suffered minor injuries. On Saturday, parts of I-25 north of Rowe and I-40 from Clines Corners to the Texas-New Mexico state line were snowpacked and icy. Crews with the state Department of Transportation were busy running snowplows up and down the roadways and spreading cinder to combat the icy conditions. However, no closures were reported. Worsening road conditions also prompted officials at Carlsbad Caverns National Park in the southeastern corner of the state to close early. Officials said they were also delaying Saturday’s opening due to the weather.

November has been a fairly dry month so far, but forecasters said the next 48 hours will help to turn that around, particularly for the state’s ski areas. Sipapu is already open, but several more ski areas are scheduled to

open for the Thanksgiving weekend, including Ski Santa Fe. Seven other storm-related deaths were reported around the region. Three were reported Saturday in a crash in the Texas Panhandle involving

nearly a dozen vehicles. Several traffic accidents were reported in Texas on Saturday, including one that injured three members of singer Willie Nelson’s band when their bus struck a pillar on Interstate 30 near Sulphur Springs, about 75 miles northeast of Dallas. In California, where the storm system hit first, prompting flooding and water rescues in recent days, three deaths have been linked to the storms since Thursday, as authorities found one body near downed power lines, one man crashed his vehicle into a tree and a woman was killed when a tree fell on a parked car. In Arizona, firefighters recovered the body of a man who was swept away by high waters Friday in the Santa Cruz River in the southern part of the state. In Nevada, snow in high elevations in the rural, eastern part of the state stranded dozens of cars. No fatalities were reported, and authorities got the road open again by Saturday.

about 3,100 students are English-language learners and 2,075 are special-education students. Gruenler said one challenge will be to ensure that funding for “regular students” does not “fall below what is necessary for their education.” A June 2013 National Education Policy Center review of the weighted student funding formula in California found that some of the larger schools in both Oakland and San Francisco “did not see equity improvements,”and that linking this funding approach to improved academic achievement “is tenuous at best.” Eric Hanushek, a senior fellow of education policy at the Hoover Institute at Stanford University, said by phone Friday that he has mixed feelings about these strategies, although he likes the idea of individual school leaders making decisions about how to dole out money because “they know what they need at their schools.” He said such a formula might result in an additional tutor for ELL students or a new after-school program, but the money won’t allow any flexibility when it comes to hiring good teachers or removing bad teachers. In a best-case scenario, he said, the approach “could, in fact, help put incentives and resources behind the kids who are most in need.” But he warns that the money may be wasted in the classroom if it’s not handled properly.

schools based on staffing ratios — a certain number of teachers for a certain number of students — the district will fund schools according to the characteristics of their students: How many are English-language learners? How many are poor? How many have special needs? The money would follow each student to his or her school. The district hasn’t yet decided what weights will be used. But schools serving populations with greater needs would receive resources to meet those needs, Boyd said. The district has a $130,000 contract with a company to “help figure out the weights, measures, process and implementation of the plan,” he said. Weighted student funding is catching on around the country. Boston, Baltimore and San Francisco, for example, are already using this strategy. In a sense, the district says it is developing it own “mini-SEG funding formula,” a reference to the State Equalization Guarantee. The guarantee, a funding formula that determines how much each district receives from the state, was adopted in New Mexico in the 1970s. The idea was to give each public-school student equal access to programs and services, regardless of location or economic conditions. It was a model at the time, but a 2011 joint study by the Legislative Finance Committee and the Legislative Education Study Committee said it is “too complicated and difficult to administer” and that funds are not always effectively steered toward resources Contact Robert Nott for at-risk students. at 986-3021 or rnott@ The formula assigns unit values to each of the 330,000 students in New Mexico. A high school student, for instance, is given a 1.25 unit value. A bilingual high-school student earns another 0.5 unit value. The formula also takes into consideration such factors as whether the 690-1029 district is growing, and whether it is small or rural. The formula does not account for the district’s Go to cost of living, which puts an for more information CSA, expensive community like Santa NMLS#201470 Fe at a disadvantage when it Mortgage Partners-Santa Fe, 320 Paseo de Peralta Suite E, Santa Fe, NM 87501 comes to employee salaries. Weighted student funding will not increase the money coming to Santa Fe Public Schools, however. For that, the district is considering a suit against the state over the issue of equitable funding. School board President Linda Trujillo said by phone last week that it is likely the board will act on this issue by the end of the calendar year. Meanwhile, a recent study by 6th Annual the National Education Association says New Mexico ranks 25 among states in per-student funding — about $10,200 per student. Santa Fe fares even worse. Under the state funding formula, it receives an average of $6,729 per student, giving it a rank of 82 out of the 89 districts in the state, according to Carl Gruenler, the district’s chief 5K Walk & Run + 1K Kids Fun Run business officer. Gruenler said the district’s Thanksgiving Day own funding formula may not differ too much from the state St. Johnʼs College Soccer Field plan, but it might stimulate a broader discussion on “how the 7:30am: Race Day Registration state funding formula reflected in 9:00am: 5K Walk & Run | 10:00am: 1K Kids Fun Run the SEG can be revised.” Total enrollment in Santa Fe Pre-register at or Bike N Sport Public Schools is around 13,000;

Washington fans can force team name change WASHINGTON an Snyder remains adamant that he will not change the nickname of his beloved football team. It doesn’t matter to him that at least 28 high schools and 20 colleges have made the switch in recent years. Or that the Redskins call Washington their home and even the president has suggested changing the team name. Snyder cheered for the Redskins as a kid, and now that he’s in control, even National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell cannot sway him from this growing publicrelations storm. The myth that sports owners are true stewards for the game went out the window forever when baseball’s Brooklyn Dodgers and San Francisco Giants left New York for more lucrative markets on the West Coast. “When Walter O’Malley moved his Brooklyn Dodgers to Los Angeles in 1958, it marked the era of disloyal teams and changed the sports world forever,” says economist Andrew


Zimbalist. But at least O’Malley and his cohort, the Giants’ Horace Stoneman, believed they could make even more money in California. One cannot be certain what Snyder’s logic is. Part of it may be he’s a successful stubborn businessman who doesn’t like to be told what to do, even if the commissioner is whispering words of wisdom in his ear. We also know Snyder is a lifelong fan of this particular team. He grew up rooting for the Redskins, and only the Redskins, and that makes a name change on his watch much more problematic. Of course, we’ve always had owners who bordered upon being megalomaniacs. Al Davis, Marge Schott and George Steinbrenner come to mind. But at least they understood that you always needed the common folk coming through the turnstiles. You had to keep them on board. Snyder would be in for a financial windfall if he did change the name to the Americans, Warriors or even the Bravehearts, a nickname that his

neighbor recently filed a patent on. Not only would the owner be seen as a local hero, but think of all the new merchandise he could sell. Yet Snyder refuses to go down that path. He told USA Today that he’d never switch, and then told the newspaper to put his response in capital letters. Through it all, the ones caught in the middle are the fans. Many of them still wear the ’Skins gear and come out in droves for the team. Despite only four playoff appearances since 1993, Washington’s football team remains the top ticket in the Washington area. The attention the Redskins receive eclipses anything basketball’s Wizards or hockey’s Capitals can muster. Until that shifts, at least in part, one wonders if there will be much movement on the nickname front. For when Snyder gazes upon another full house at FedEx Field, where his football plays its home games, he sees thousands wearing Redskins jerseys and jackets, caught up as much in the outcome as he is. That makes it easy to ignore

common sense and even common decency that no team should be called the Redskins — a name that some regard as a racial slur — in this day and age. So, good luck with Goodell working the back channels, sports journalists refusing to use the moniker in their stories or even the growing protests about the nickname when the Redskins go on the road. Ultimately, the power for change lies with the hometown fans. Imagine if they refused to wear the team logo or a significant number didn’t show up for the next home game? Until the Redskins fans take a stand, perhaps one as steadfast as their owner’s, this name game will remain an embarrassment to the sporting world.

epublican Janice Arnold-Jones lost a close Albuquerque City Council race Tuesday. And one of the major reasons for that defeat — the abortion issue — strikes me as ironic. During her years in the Roundhouse, she never really was known as a social conservative. Jones served eight years in the state House of Representatives. And she was highly regarded by the Capitol press corps. She’s smart and accessible. She had a real independent streak. She once voted against her own GOP floor leader for House speaker once. She was one of a handful of Republicans to vote to repeal the death penalty. And, on the government transparency front, she became known for an outright act of rebellion — using her own laptop computer to livestream meetings of committees on which Steve Terrell she served and doing Roundhouse so without seeking Roundup official permission. This helped open the floodgates. Four years later, we all take for granted legislative webcasting and the fact people no longer have to travel to the Capitol to watch their elected officials make laws. But webcasting at the Roundhouse probably wasn’t on the minds of Albuquerque voters last week. What drove up the number of voters in that special election was the abortion ballot question. More than 87,000 voters voted Tuesday, about 20 percent more than came out for that dud of a mayor’s race in Albuquerque last month. Voters, by a 55 percent to 45 percent margin, rejected the proposed abortion law, which would have outlawed all abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. But the margin was much closer in Arnold-Jones’ race, where she lost to Democrat Diane Gibson. Gibson got 52 percent of the vote while Arnold-Jones received 48 percent. The reason this race was even on the ballot was because in the regular October election, none of the three candidates received more than 50 percent of the vote. Arnold-Jones missed that mark by 76 votes. So the fate of that Northeast Heights council seat was put into the hands of an electorate that saw a big influx of voters fired up about the abortion issue. While Gibson was strongly against the abortion ban, Arnold-Jones had embraced it. An Albuquerque Journal report last month quoted Arnold-Jones endorsing the proposed law, saying, “The last thing I want is for Albuquerque to be known as the abortion capital of the world.” I’m not sure why she’d say something like that. There’s never been such a law on the books there, and Albuquerque never has been known as “the abortion capital of the world.” And I truly doubt that anyone seriously will say that of Albuquerque even though the ballot initiative failed miserably. I guess this emotional issue naturally makes people on all sides let loose with hyperbole. Democrats relentlessly attacked Arnold-Jones as an extremist on the abortion issue. State Democratic Party Chairman Sam Bregman repeatedly called her a “Do-Nothing Tea Party Republican.” But just a couple of years ago, when Arnold-Jones was running for Congress, she was attacked from the right by conservative GOP primary opponent Dan Lewis, who blasted her stand on issues, including abortion. Lewis criticized her for reportedly saying that social issues “should take a back seat” to other issues in the campaign. Back in the spring of 2010, when Arnold-Jones was running for governor in the Republican primary, I asked her about her position on abortion. She told me without hesitation that she believes in the sanctity of life “from conception until natural death.” But in answering the question, she also recalled a friend who became pregnant in high school. “She had few choices,” Arnold-Jones said of her friend. “She committed suicide.” Because of that friend and other young women in the same situation, Arnold-Jones told me she couldn’t support a rigid “one-size-fits-all” policy on abortion. It might not have saved Arnold-Jones last week had she refrained from endorsing the “one-size-fits-all” policy that was on the ballot. But it would have been more consistent.

Solar power gets short shrift


he solar industry in New Mexico received what could be a body blow last week from a shortsighted and divided Public Regulation Commission. Former commissioner Doug Howe said the change essentially will “cut the solar industry in New Mexico in half.” On a 3-2 vote, commissioners changed the state’s renewable energy rule by altering the value of Renewable Energy Certificates issued for electricity produced from solar and other renewable energy resources. Utilities use those certificates to show they are providing the necessary renewable energy required by the state’s Renewable Portfolio Standard. Before the vote, a certificate equalled 1 kilowatt-hour of electricity, whether the energy came from solar, wind or any other sort of renewable energy. Now, 1 kilowatt-hour of solar will be equal to two certificates. That basically cuts in half the solar power that utilities need to meet state standards. One kilowatt-hour of electricity from biomass and geothermal will be worth three certificates. By 2020, the state is requiring investor-owned utilities to supply 20 percent of electricity sold to customers from renewable sources by 2020. That portfolio must be varied, too, although giving different weight to the various types of renewables makes it harder to reach the desired diversity. Voting to change the rule were commissioners Pat Lyons, Ben Hall and Theresa Becenti-Hall. Santa Fe’s commissioner, Valerie Espinoza, and Karen Montoya, who represents the Albuquerque area, voted to keep the rule as it is, and both tried to delay the vote. Of course, the rule would not have been up for alteration — it was just adopted last December — had Espinoza not signed an order to consider a rule change. That decision set the whole rule change in motion. After controversy erupted over that order, the PRC decided last May to restart the rule-making process — all before consumers and utilities alike had a chance to test the original rule. This vote is a step backward for New Mexico. With the state falling short in supporting an industry that has only growth ahead of it, cities and counties must step up in the short term. As Santa Fe has shown with solar energy use at fire stations and other city buildings, the right kind of renewable energy saves taxpayers dollars, all while reducing air pollution. With 310 days of sunshine in New Mexico each year, projects in Clovis to Chama and Gallup to Raton could benefit from the sun’s rays, reducing utility costs for taxpayers and pumping needed dollars into one of our state’s essential industries.

Keep the wheels rolling


ood news for cyclists — Santa Fe is starting to recycle old bicycles and bike parts. Instead of scrapping old bikes, Santa Fe’s recycling station is diverting the bikes and parts away from the waste stream. Instead, the waste will go to the Chainbreaker Collective so that people can learn how to build their own bikes. Tomás Rivera, executive director of the collective, says his group already has been recycling. For the past nine years, Chainbreaker has distributed nearly 1,500 bikes to people who otherwise could not afford transportation. Because people are using bikes rather than fossil-fuel powered vehicles, Rivera believes 2 million gallons of gas have been conserved. That, in turn, has saved riders some $6 million and prevented almost 30,000 ton of carbon dioxide emissions from entering the atmosphere. Santa Fe has cleaner air because of these bikes. With the city recycling station now taking bikes, the Chainbreaker Collective should be able to put more people on two wheels. People can either take their bikes and parts to the recycling station or directly to Chainbreaker at the collective’s shop, 1515 Fifth St., from noon to 4 p.m. Sundays. The brash collective believes that helping people get around is a social justice matter — Chainbreakers also works on issues such as expanding the “living wage” to Santa Fe County and also worked (successfully) so that the city provides free bus passes to citizens who buy their bikes at a local store. The group also is hosting a Posolada, a holiday open house celebration. Chainbreaker plans to give out 30 bikes at the event, scheduled for Dec. 15. This new partnership is a win-win for Santa Fe, and for people who lack reliable transportation. Let’s keep the old wheels rolling on.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Nov. 24, 1963: Moscow — Moscow radio charged Saturday night that rightist elements in America are attempting to cast the blame for President Kennedy’s assassination on the Communists. The radio said: “Serious observers do not believe the police version about the responsibility of leftist elements for the assassination and wait for further results of the investigation. … The police are trying to involve the Communist party of the United States in the assassination of the President.”


A new Manifest Destiny? AmeriCan WASHINGTON n the 1995 movie, Canadian Bacon, the U.S. president (Alan Alda), distressed by low opinion polls, starts a war with Canada on the theory that the public rallies around wartime presidents. Recently, we have seen that this theory isn’t necessarily true, but the movie was funny because (1) comedian John Candy was in it; (2) the idea that America would care enough about Canada to go to war seemed ludicrous. But now there is a new idea floating around that President Barack Obama, fighting plummeting opinion polls, might consider: A new country containing both the United States and Canada. It would be bigger than Thomas Jefferson’s Louisiana Purchase! It would relegate “Obamacare” to yesterday’s news! Of course, the first obstacle to reflect upon is what to do with Toronto’s badboy mayor, Rob Ford, the man with the unfortunate proclivities for crack cocaine and strip clubs while being incredibly inebriated, according to his explanation. But assuming that Canada’s richest city can be put out of its misery by the eventual departure of the bawdy Ford, the idea of merging the two countries is intriguing to many. Diane Francis, a respected journalist and author who lives in Toronto and New York City, has laid out serious arguments for a mutual union in a new book, Merger of the Century: Why Canada and America Should Become One Country. She argues, “A merger will provide mil-


lions of Canadians and Americans with new jobs, exponential resources, enormous capital increases, and protection against conflict with countries including China and Russia, among others.” Presumably good-natured Canadians would keep hot-tempered Americans from starting new wars and possibly help end current ones, such as the 12-year-old war in Afghanistan. Referring to forecasts that China’s economy will be larger than the U.S. economy by 2018, Francis suggests that a U.S.-Canadian merger would make the new country the world’s undisputed economic superpower. In exchange for its huge, untapped natural resources, Canada would get the protection of a larger military. Francis worries that both Canada and the United States are showing signs of decline, which, she says, could be prevented by a merger. She’s concerned that despite sharing geography and values, the U.S. and Canada have a border that has become “more clogged than ever, hurting trade and tourism” because of security controls, terrorist threats, drug smuggling and regulations. The templates for a merger come from the reunification of East and West Germany and the European Union, which offers economic and security advantages while letting disparate cultures survive. Since the War of 1812 ended, Canadians and Americans have been friends. They mostly sound alike, except for some words such as “about,” believe in democracy, don’t think of each other as “foreign-

ers” and take pride in each other’s movie stars. Their political parties are similar, although Canada has managed not to have a tea party. One challenge is that Americans almost never think of Canada, while Canadians spend too much time thinking of, and being slightly resentful of, the United States. Another problem is Americans’ affection for guns, which many Canadians find appalling, and America’s rejection of national health care, of which Canadians are very proud. If the two countries merged into the U.S.-Canada Alliance, the new leader would be expected to approve the controversial northern leg of TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline down through the Midwest instead of waffling over it as President Obama is doing now, worried about climate change versus more oil. On the other hand, Quebec separatists would still be unhappy. As for what the name of the new country would be, why, isn’t it obvious? AmeriCan. The new flag would have maple leaves instead of stars. Canadians already have bought second homes in Florida. Millions of Americans who went ape over Baby George and generally are possessed of royal envy, would get a queen by proxy. Hollywood, at least, is salivating at the possibilities. Ann McFeatters has covered the White House and national politics since 1986.

Dealing with military assaults still contentious WASHINGTON he defense reauthorization bill is drawing more interest than usual, because this year it comes with a catfight — or so the press and the male cats in the Senate would have it. The debate over amendments that would change how military sexual assaults are handled pits two allies on the Senate Armed Services Committee, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., against each other. At issue is how to improve the abominably low rate of reporting and prosecution of sexual assaults in the military. The Pentagon found that last year out of an estimated 26,000 sexual assaults, 3,300 were reported and 302 prosecuted. In June, Army Secretary John McHugh testified that “we have failed” to deal properly with would-be victims of sexual assault. At the same hearing, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, said, “If a perpetrator shows up at a court martial with a rack of ribbons and has four deployments and a Purple Heart, there is certainly the risk that we might be a little too forgiving of that particular crime.” The defense reauthorization bill contains a lot of improvements to an awful situation, but Gillibrand and McCaskill have offered competing solutions to a central problem. The proposals have divided the two powerhouses on the committee, so much so that the president is staying out of the fray, despite a plea from Gillibrand to show some leadership. Gillibrand’s amendment has the advantage of simplicity. She would remove the reporting and prosecution from the chain of command entirely, and transfer it to a kind of super-judge advocate general that is independent of the command. Testimony of victims has shown that the commanders have blown it: Just listen to those

who have been ignored, retaliated against, had verdicts overturned and been otherwise abused twice — first by the assault itself and then by friendly fire. Commanders, who often aren’t unbiased, have absolute authority to accept or reject a recommendation to prosecute. There’s no appeal. What’s more, a commander can overturn a guilty verdict without so much as a written explanation of why he’s doing so. McCaskill, a former prosecutor, agrees with Gillibrand on the nature of the problem but has proposed a more nuanced solution. McCaskill would put in place civilian review at the highest level — the secretary of the Navy, for example — over a decision NOT to prosecute. Now, commanders have final authority. If the JAG and a commander agree to prosecute, there’s no review needed. The matter simply goes to court martial. McCaskill would also eliminate the pernicious “good soldier defense,” which mitigates punishment for those who otherwise carry out their duties at a high level — something like granting parole to convicts who perform well in the prison laundry. McCaskill also would create the recourse to remove commanders from the process altogether if automatic review doesn’t work. What McCaskill doesn’t want is to create an entity that bypasses commanders entirely because she believes they should have some skin in the game. The atmosphere won’t change if commanders, who oversee every other element of life in the military, don’t buy in to a process with vast new safeguards. A decision to deepsix a complaint could no longer happen. In a huge get for Gillibrand, Majority Leader Harry Reid announced his backing for her version yesterday. That brought to 50 the number of publicly declared supporters, not enough to carry the day as the measure will probably

need 60 votes to pass. Among the 50 is an unlikely vote, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas. But there also is one unusual holdout, Reid’s ally, Senator Carl Levin, the chairman of the Armed Services Committee. McCaskill is in a lonely spot: Her usual buddies are united on the other side and she has just two Republicans, Sens. Kelly Ayotte and Debra Fischer, standing with her. I almost had a Green Room conversion last week as I listened to her explaining her rationale for going her own way. McCaskill and Gillibrand are at pains not to question each other’s motives. It’s not because they are being “nice,” or belong to the gentler, kinder sex, but because they look at the men and see their ways don’t work. It took a couple of the women working behind the scenes to get the government opened last month. Whatever happens with the dueling amendments, the seven women on the committee have already pushed huge reforms to the underlying bill that are no longer up for debate: stripping commanders of their ability to overturn jury convictions, providing an independent counsel to each victim, and requiring a dishonorable discharge or dismissal for anyone who is convicted of sexual assault. The bill also criminalizes retaliation against victims who have reported a sexual assault, creates a civilian review of cases that aren’t prosecuted and eliminates the statute of limitations in these cases. Reporting, given the abysmal record of treatment, has been a terrible problem. The victims are afraid that their complaint will go nowhere, that they’ll be exposed and that there will be retaliation. But in the first three quarters of this year, reports are up 46 percent. That’s a real-world improvement, no matter whose amendment wins. Margaret Carlson is a Bloomberg View columnist.

Retention an expensive use of education dollars


he story (“D.H. Lawrence Ranch could reopen amid efforts in Taos,” Nov. 16) that D.H. Lawrence’s Ranch north of Taos might be reopened to the public for educational tours is a welcome sign. The University of New Mexico, to which the ranch was bequeathed by Lawrence’s widow, might rethink the management of this iconic, early 20th-century site where a vital, challenging writer experienced deep spiritual revitalization in the landscape and cultures of Northern New Mexico. I first visited the Lawrence Ranch in 1973, when studying Lawrence’s work with James Cowan, founder and director of the D.H. Lawrence Review at the University of Arkansas. I drove to New Mexico during spring break that year. I still recall the inspiration I felt as a young man visiting a site where a giant of early 20th-century culture lived and worked. When peering into the small, rustic cabin where Lawrence wrote some of his later works, I thought about how he gave all to his writing, accumulating little material wealth, living simply so he could pursue his dream of speaking out for the human spirit in a time of increased industrialization and suppression of individuality. While his novels, poems, paintings and literary criticism will always hold the central value of his life, to be able to walk the same ground, see the same forested lands and look into his small cabin allows the power of his writing to sink into body and soul, and connects one to that champion of what is human against the forces that would turn all life into a salable commodity. We need touchstones to remarkable spirits like Lawrence’s that celebrate human lives lived intensely. Lawrence’s Ranch, if handled properly by UNM and interested citizens around the globe, can make a comeback, can once again refresh and revitalize the world-weary with its story, and in the process contribute to the revitalization of the local economy. If there is any doubt as to the attraction power of a Lawrence historic site, one only need consult the University of Nottingham’s D.H. Lawrence Heritage Center and Birthplace Museum, so popular that tours must be booked well in advance. Perhaps it’s time for UNM to consider entering into a joint management agreement with, for example, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Taos-based Friends of D.H. Lawrence and the National Park Service. Additionally, the scholarly D.H. Lawrence Society of North America has recently expressed interest in contributing to a long-range preservation and interpretation planning process for the ranch. The timing for assisting UNM in fulfilling its obligation seems just right, since one of Northern New Mexico’s own, Dr. Estevan Rael-Galvez, former state historian and chairman of the New Mexico Cultural Properties Committee, is now senior vice president of historic sites at the National Trust for Historic Preservation. I urge UNM to think boldly about the power of Lawrence’s legacy in New Mexico, and to reach out to potential allies with the specialized knowledge and experience required to manage and promote this valuable historic site. Much needs to be done to honor Lawrence’s legacy in New Mexico and to preserve the ranch’s key buildings and landscape views from deterioration. This could be New Mexico’s last chance to do so.

he New Mexican’s Nov. 13 editorial, “Focus on reading, not just retention,” was on target and merits further discussion with additional consideration of our unique New Mexico context. The current administration’s relentless focus on bringing Jeb Bush’s failed Florida reforms to New Mexico is questionable at best. As Lew Wallace once wrote, “All calculations, based on experience elsewhere, fail in New Mexico.” Seventy-one percent of New Mexico public school students are linguistically and/or culturally diverse. The English learner and Hispanic student populations are the fastest-growing sub-groups of students in U.S. schools, and as a minority-majority state, New Mexico looks today what much of the country is projected to look like in the near future. Therefore, New Mexico has to get it right when it comes to educating these students. We have supportive legislation such as our Hispanic Education Act and Bilingual Multicultural Education Act, both of which call on the Public Education Department to build upon our students’ linguistic and cultural assets. An educational approach that builds on our state’s diverse assets has the potential to position New Mexico as a leader in minority student education. Unfortunately, the Martinez administration, under the leadership of Education Secretary-designate Hanna Skandera, continues to take not only a deficit approach but a punitive one as well toward our state’s diverse students. The research is clear. Mandatory retention does not work. It punishes students for a system that failed to meet their needs in the first place and has an inequitably detrimental impact on students of color. Recent publications by the RAND Corp. as well as the American Association of School Psychologists make these negative effects resoundingly clear: u Retained students are more likely to be male, minority, live in poor households and come from single-parent families. u Some studies showed brief academic improvement in the years immediately following retention, but those gains were “short-lived and tend[ed] to fade over time.” u There is a negative relationship between retention and subsequent academic achievement for all demographic groups. u Retained students are much more likely to drop out of school, less likely to attend

college, and have lower overall earnings than their nonretained peers. u Grade retention is Edward Tabet-Cubero a very costly intervention. A quick analysis of New Mexico Standards Based Assessment data shows that mandatory retention is sure to impact minority students at unequal rates, with only 11 percent of Anglo students scoring at the lowest level of proficiency on the Reading NMSBA, compared with 25 percent to 35 percent of Hispanic, African American, American Indian and English Language Learner students scoring at this level. The governor’s proposal would only perpetuate the achievement gap for these underserved students, and with higher numbers of minority students being retained, it would result in de-facto segregation. One only need to look as far as Chicago Public Schools, where a mandatory retention policy’s impact on students of color drew a federal Department of Justice investigation, or to North Carolina, where the state completely did away with the policy because it did not have “the intended effect.” Forcing struggling readers to repeat a year of the same instruction that didn’t work for them in the first place seems like a poor use of our limited education dollars. An alternative to punishing 8-year-old children for the “failure” of the state education system would be to invest the funds in early childhood education, provide additional training and support for teachers to improve their practice, teach students to read in a linguistic and cultural context they can relate to, engage parents in their children’s literacy development, and provide early culturally and linguistically appropriate interventions. It’s time the governor and the secretary-designate stop politicizing the education of our youth by acquiescing to outside influences and begin engaging local experts and educators with experience in New Mexico to identify solutions that work for our unique context. Edward Tabet-Cubero, a duallanguage expert, is with the Coalition for the Majority and lives in Santa Fe. The group advocates for the rights of all children in eduation.

Secondary school reform won’t meet goals T he Santa Fe School District is proposing changes under a secondary school reform package. I encourage anyone with an interest in public education to learn about the proposed reforms and express your concerns to Superintendent Joel Boyd and the Santa Fe school board. A copy of the reform package is available at: The goal of expanding options, preparing students for careers and college, and increasing high school graduation rates is commendable. During meetings on secondary reform the following concerns were expressed by students, parents and teachers. The concerns have never been addressed by the district. These are areas in the reform which do not move the district toward its goals. Creation of a separate International Baccalaureate (IB) School u Secondary school reform package states, “We have inequity across our city in our options” (page 20). An International Baccalaureate school of only 300 students would increase the inequity across our city.

The district is planning to spend $400,000 over five years to establish the IB school. This is a per student cost of $1,300. The budget calls for $570,000 spent on reform for comprehensive high schools with approximately 2,600 students. This is a per student cost of $219. Where is the equity in spending $1,300 per student for 300 students and only $219 per student for “all the rest”? u Where is the support for an IB school? The district’s second survey shows IB ranked as the 11th choice out of 12 when asked the question “preference for these themes for small secondary schools or career academies.” The district’s data show the breakdown on respondents’ preference as follows: 1. College prep 7.3 (level of support); 2. computers and technology 7.1; 3. math and science 6.7; 4. medical service 6.6; 5. English and social studies 6.3; 6. dual language 6.2; 7. finance and business 6.1; 8. visual arts 6.0; 9. law and justice 6.0; 10. public service 5.9; 11. International Baccalaureate 5.8; and 12. Montessori 5.3. (Source: www.sfps. info/DocumentCenter/View/7283) u How would an IB school improve

graduation rates? An IB would attract high achieving students, but the secondary reform document states, “High Achieving students expressed that the current programs are working for them” (page 13). Career pathways: The requirements would be for all students in the comprehensive high schools to select a career pathway from one of seven choices. u A majority of 14-year-old freshmen do not know what career or area of study they want to pursue. High school should be an opportunity to explore the wide subjects available in our comprehensive high schools. Narrowing does not meet the goal of secondary school reform to, “Expand access to more academic options for students across the community” (page 19). u Seven pathways are not sufficient to encompass the multitude of career and college options available to students as they graduate from high school. A better option is to allow the students to continue to explore the many options available at our comprehensive high schools.

Neither the IB nor career pathways meet the goals of secondary school reform to: u “Increase Equity in Programming and Expand Access to More Academic Options for Students across the Community;” or u “Leverage Existing Resources and Expand Current Effective Practices in the District.” Instead of creating an IB and requiring students to select a career pathway, let’s focus on: u Creating support systems for at-risk students with intervention pathways; u Expanding and increasing resources for Advanced Placeme and AVID programs; u Increasing teacher training; u Increasing counseling resources to assist students with supporting career selection and preparation, meeting graduation requirements including credit recovery, exploring college options and providing behavioral support.

A lesser prairie chicken. COURTESY PHOTO


Lesser prairie chicken plan requires careful Break out the old bumper stickers evaluation Y MY VIEW: DAVID G. ZLOTNICK


ecently, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service endorsed a voluntary conservation plan for the lesser prairie chicken drafted by the states of Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas, where the increasingly rare grouse is found. The plan’s stated goal is to preclude the need for listing the lesser prairie chicken as a threatened species and to maintain state authority for lesser prairie chicken management. While Audubon New Mexico has recognized the effort undertaken to produce this plan and commented on it during its development, we were surprised that the federal agency charged with objectively evaluating all scientific information and public comment received for the proposed listing of the lesser prairie chicken would endorse this plan so quickly without evaluating its provisions and the likelihood of success. On the surface, the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies’ plan, which calls for financial incentives for landowners who manage their property to benefit the lesser prairie chicken and also provides a framework to mitigate the impacts of development activity such as oil and gas drilling, sounds like a win-win for all parties involved. But what has not been evaluated is how effective this plan actually will be in increasing lesser prairie chicken populations, and that is where Audubon’s concern lies. Contrary to what has been reported, Audubon is not advocating for federal listing of this species. We are, however, raising a cautionary flag and calling for the Range-wide Conservation Plan to be implemented immediately and evaluated carefully for effectiveness. Given its emphasis on voluntary measures, some of which have been implemented for years with no quantifiable effects on lesser prairie chicken populations, and on a mitigation plan that is unproven and has yet to be implemented, Audubon believes that the plan should be evaluated on its results for lesser prairie chicken populations, not on its intent. Our concerns have been further heightened by the results of the 2013 Range-wide Aerial Survey for the lesser prairie chicken, which showed a 50 percent decline in population numbers. When federal regulators first proposed listing the bird under the Endangered Species Act in 2012, there were fewer than 35,000 birds, while this year’s survey estimated only 17,616 individuals across the bird’s range. These results underscore the perilous status of the lesser prairie chicken and should be a warning to the Fish and Wildlife Service that good intentions are not sufficient to bring about recovery of the species. Audubon has actively advocated for lesser prairie chicken recovery in New Mexico for almost 25 years, and we have seen many plans fail for lack of consistent implementation. While drought has widely been cited for the decline of

ou remember the bumper stickers about George W. Bush — he lied about the weapons of mass destruction. Now we have a president who we know knew three years ago that millions could lose the health insurance they chose to buy. The president reassured us in a speech to the American Medical Association, June 15, 2009, “That means that no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.” We were also told that our insurance costs would go down by an average of $2,500 per year per family. The Associated Press just recently reported on Mr. and Mrs. Dean Griffin, ages 64, whose insurance policy cost has gone from $770 per month with a $2,500 deductible to $1,275 per month and a $12,700 deductible. Not only did they lose the insurance that they liked, they have to change doctors who have treated them as patients for over a decade and the monthly insurance cost went up by 65 percent. The good news for this couple is that the wife has maternity coverage that they don’t want

the species, the larger threat to survival of the species is loss of habitat from energy development and conversion to agriculture. The prairie utilized by the lesser prairie chicken in New Mexico also supports other declining grassland species such as the ferruginous hawk, longbilled curlew, burrowing owl, loggerhead shrike, Sprague’s pipit, chestnut-collared longspur and grasshopper sparrow. Having lost more than 97 percent of our native grasslands in the U.S., conserving the remaining habitat and the grassland birds it supports must be a high priority. At Audubon, we are interested in establishing effective, proactive management actions, long-term habitat protections and funding mechanisms that will bolster lesser prairie chicken populations throughout their range. Audubon is committed to remaining engaged in the conservation of this species and to working with the Fish and Wildlife Service and all partners towards a successful outcome for the lesser prairie chicken.

but have to pay for now. Why would our president say things to us that he knew were false, wrong and just not correct? My take is that if we knew the truth, this law would have never been passed. “Obamacare” has been touted to be a boom to the economy. In our office, we pay for part of the health insurance premium, and the employee pays for anything over that amount. In the past, employees were allowed to choose what they wanted in their health insurance and now they don’t have that option. What they are now also finding out is that their monthly premium cost has gone up as well as their deductible out-ofpocket costs. The monthly total increase that the employees are paying is more than $2,000. That amount of money will not be spent in the economy on

restaurants, cars, clothing, vacations etc. It will go to the insurance companies. I know we have a history of presidents lying to us. In recent years, we had George H.W. Bush and “no new taxes,” to President Bill Clinton, “I didn’t have sexual relations with the woman,” and I previously mentioned George W. Bush, “There are weapons of mass destruc-

tion in Iraq,” and finally our present president, “If you like your present health insurance you can keep it, period. If you like your present doctor you can keep him, period.” Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. He lies. David G. Zlotnick is a CPA in Santa Fe.

Government secrecy Everyone must work to fight hunger eviscerates history


hile much has been made of the government’s current penchant for secrecy, few have noticed that this atmosphere now shrouds government history as well. Working on a biography of a noted Washington journalist, I placed a routine Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request in 2011 for her FBI file. The timing of my application seemed propitious. Two years earlier, President Barack Obama had signed an executive order to speed declassification of materials and had issued an encouraging FOIA memorandum. “All agencies should adopt a presumpJames tion in favor McGrath of disclosure,” Morris he wrote, “in order to renew their commitment to the principles embodied in FOIA, and to usher in a new era of open government.” In fact, the FBI promptly mailed me the requested file. When I opened it, however, I found the material so extensively redacted that it looked as if the photocopier had spewed mostly blank pages. I immediately appealed to have the file, now decades old, unredacted. I cited the president’s memorandum and noted that the subject of my book, Ethel L. Payne, was an African American. I presumed this administration might be more sympathetic to exposing past FBI transgressions against blacks. Payne, of course, was only one of many African Americans who were targets of FBI investigators in the past. Among its many domestic surveillance activities, the FBI ran the Ghetto Informant Program, an operation that recruited informants and researched what was sold in, according to FBI parlance, “Afro-American-type bookstores.” The bureau even targeted black lawmakers such as Ron Dellums, a U.S. congressman from California and a friend of Payne’s. The FBI opened a file on Payne in 1973 on the basis of information its New York field office obtained, alleging subversive behavior on her part. Agents were able to determine only that she worked for the Chicago Defender, then one of the most prominent black newspapers; was a past president of the Capital Press Club, “composed of approximately 100 black news representatives”; and was scheduled to appear at a National Urban League convention — hardly the activities of a subversive. It will not be long before the government will include all of its historical past among its secrecy prerogatives. Even though it is likely that

the hidden material in the file is benign, the FBI continues to stonewall my request to reveal those portions of the file that have been blanked out. Those sections would be key in understanding not only Payne as the subject of government investigation, but also how the FBI made its determination as to who would be the subject of its surveillance. This is the stuff that matters. For how can we tell the story of our government’s activities, right or wrong, when the manner by which it conducted its business is kept from us decades later? “Dollars to doughnuts they have redacted all of that because it would make them look terrible,” Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., a senior member of the Armed Services Committee, told a reporter when hearing about this case. “And that is no reason to redact anything. I can’t imagine anything in this woman’s file would be of a nature that would have any impact on current issues that the Department of Justice faces.” Redacted document from the FBI file of Ethel Payne, obtained through a Freedom of Information request by the author. The Department of Justice’s Department Review Committee took two years to hear my appeal. Finally, this fall, it informed me it was upholding the FBI’s decision to keep most of the file secret. If I am dissatisfied with the decision, the chairman of the committee assured me, I may file a lawsuit as indicated in the letter sent to me two years ago. I am not alone in coming up against this wall of secrecy. In the late 1990s, a historian published an in-house history of CIA operations in the 1950s and ’60s while he worked for the agency. In 2009, when he heard that someone had submitted an FOIA request for his study, he did so as well. When it came, he told historians at a recent gathering, 90 percent of the report’s pages were redacted. Obviously, my publisher and I would be thrilled if the FBI changed its mind regarding my appeal. But my own work is less important here. Rather than wage currency to pastries — to use McCaskill’s colloquialism — my woes reflect a larger trend. The paranoia that drives the government to fear any disclosure is creating a culture of secrecy so extensive that even my routine request ends up in a docket of appeals and, perhaps, a courtroom. It will not be long before the government will include all of its historical past among its secrecy prerogatives. James McGrath Morris, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author who lives in Tesuque, wrote this for Al Jazeera America.

unger is very real in New Mexico. Nearly 31 percent of our children are experiencing hunger and about the same percentage are living in poverty. New Mexico is the worst state for overall child well-being. Moreover, 21 percent of our seniors are food insecure. These glaring statistics reflect very real human faces that call us to work together to find very real solutions to the unacceptable high rates of hunger and poverty among our neighbors across New Mexico. Many in the private and nonprofit sectors as well as in faith communities are working hard to address hunger through food banks, meal programs, food pantries and other direct service programs. Among the public initiatives that are working to address hunger are the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Women, Infants and Children and school meal and senior meal programs. And yet, with all of these private and public efforts, New Mexico still has alarming numbers of people who regularly don’t have access to enough food. The private and nonprofit sectors along with faith communities will continue their

work to help families to meet their food needs, but their work alone cannot solve this problem. While public programs and policies are now part of the solution, there is more that public policymakers can do. The SNAP program must be protected from cuts. More funding can be made available to enable food banks to bring more food to our communities. We need effective economic development that increases the number of good-paying jobs throughout the state. Increasing the state minimum wage and stronger enforcement of our wage theft law would help workers earn enough to sustain their families. New Mexico’s families living in poverty need access to quality child care assistance so that children are safe while their parents are working. Fairness in tax policy is essential. These are some public policies that are needed to address hunger and poverty. All of us and our institutions must work together to make sure that all of us have enough to eat. Ruth Hoffman is the director Lutheran Advocacy Ministry-NM, which has advocated for nearly 30 years at the state level on issues impacting the lives of people living in poverty.

Support helps woman keep home, put food on table By Uriel J. Garcia The New Mexican


dith Guzman, who had a job cleaning restrooms at an office building, had to call in sick one morning about a year ago. She went to the hospital, where a doctor recommended she stay home from work for three days until she got over the virus that was making her nauseous. When she did, her boss let her go. Guzman, 43, already had been struggling to pay her rent and was worried about how she was going to feed her five children. She has anemia and was

just healing from a hernia in her stomach at the time of the viral illness. She became depressed. “I needed the job to put my kids ahead,” she said. Guzman thought she and her family were going to lose their home. But The New Mexican’s Empty

Stocking Fund stepped in to help her out. Two checks totaling $1,430 allowed Guzman to pay rent and utilities on her mobile home. “When I got the help, I was so happy, and I thanked God,” she said. “I was even able to sleep well that night because I didn’t have to worry about where my children were going to sleep.” Guzman said she tried to find another job. She asked friends and acquaintances for leads, but eventually someone told her to apply to the

he dogs pranced on a studio floor normally reserved for ballerinas, stopping only occasionally to sniff one another or bark. They were auditioning for a key part in Santa Fe Musical Theatre Works’ Christmas show. And while the musical theater company, formerly C-A-M-P Studios, usually works only with human talent, Eileen Rogosin, the owner, needed a dog for the group’s staging of the upcoming musical Annie. The musical’s story, written by Thomas Meehan of Hairspray and The Producers fame, follows Annie, an orphan, as she searches for her parents. Along her travels, she meets a mutt fleeing from a dog catcher, and that incident leads to the now-famous song “Tomorrow.” Annie befriends the furry creature and names him Sandy, and they spend the rest of the show together. The original Sandy cast in the Broadway musical, which opened

In brief Rio Arriba deputies arrest 12 in drug raid at home ESPAÑOLA — A drug bust by Rio Arriba County sheriff’s deputies has netted a significant amount of black tar heroin, prescription medication and cash. Deputies say they took 12 people into custody Friday during a raid of what was described as a regular meeting of drug traffickers at a home north of Española. The deputies served a search warrant at a home shared by brother and sister, Armando and Amanda Madrid. Sheriff Tommy Rodella

Another woman was charged with drug possession and child abuse because she had her two children with her at the time of the raid.

And while all the dogs meet the cute and fluffy standards set by the original Sandy, some didn’t want to stay put while the young star in the title role, 12-yearold Makai Colvin, sang strings of “Tomorrow.” In fact, the massive Alibi, who was easily twice the size of Makai, bolted to play with members of the audience the first chance he got, and Sukie, a medium-sized mixed breed, fled Makai’s arms to return to owner Rebecca Cook. Meanwhile, Peanut trotted, tail wagging, to Makai when called and later offered the girl a kiss.

In 1863, in the middle of the American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln presented New Mexico’s 19 pueblos with silver-headed canes as a symbol of the federal government’s recognition of their sovereignty. He was following a tradition going back to the Spanish and Mexican governments, which also had presented canes to the pueblo leaders. The Lincoln cane, given to the tribes when New Mexico was a U.S. territory, had the president’s name engraved on the head, along with the name of the pueblo. The canes are still used, especially on Jan. 6, when new pueblo leaders take office. Some pueblo governors describe them as a “living spirit.” The canes are the subject of an award-winning film by Silver Bullet Productions, a Santa Febased nonprofit that produces educational videos. Canes of Power won a Rocky Mountain Emmy Award for best cultural documentary last month. “We are very aware that the Emmy is not about

Senior skiers change slopes’ demographics By Karen Schwartz The Associated Press

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. — If you’ve walked into a ski lodge the past few years, likely as not you’ve seen tables filled with gray-haired skiers wearing sweaters so old they’re back in style. That’s because the number of skiers on the far side of 50 — some on the very far side — has been creeping up each year, according to the National Ski Areas Association. Credit advances in artificial hips and knees that make it possible for skiers to continue enjoying the sport; shaped skis, along with better snowmaking and grooming that make skiing easier; and high-speed lifts and luxury touches like ski valets that make it more pleasant. “There are no excuses,” said 93-year-old Klaus Obermeyer, the Aspen-based skiwear designer. Despite breaking his leg in a wipeout two years ago, Obermeyer still skis each day. Sure, younger people still make up the majority on the slopes — the average skier is 38.5 years old — but, “The person who skis the most in a given year is 65 and older,” said Michael Berry, president of the NSAA, based in suburban Denver. Bragging rights go to those age 68 and older, who averaged 9.5 days skiing last season. Boomers — those age 49 to 67 this year — also

Washington celebrates ‘legal weed’ anniversary Seattle OKs massive outdoor pot party By Bob Young The Seattle Times

SEATTLE — On the first anniversary of legal weed in Washington state, the city of Seattle will permit a big pot party on the site of Seattle Center’s old Fun Forest amusement park. Pot activist Ben Livingston has

the contract to prove it, a city document that says “Licensee is permitted to host a private outdoor marijuana smoking area.” Livingston forked over $1,900, which he got from a local law firm, to use part of the 74-acre Seattle Center for about eight hours on Dec. 6, the anniversary of the day Washington’s recreational pot law took effect. It’s a free, adults-only event, open to the public, at which Livingston

plans to have light music, light catering and outdoor pot smoking by up to 500 people behind a double fence, or smoking “moat,” as the permit says. But it wasn’t easy to accomplish. Livingston said Seattle Center officials initially rejected the idea because marijuana remains federally illegal. It took three months, he said, of arguing and pressing his case before city officials came around. “No matter how often you might

have smoked weed at Folklife or Bumbershoot, you were civilly disobedient,” Livingston said. “This is the first time ever on-site cannabis consumption is permitted at Seattle Center.” John Schochet, deputy chief of staff to City Attorney Pete Holmes, said Livingston’s permit should not be considered a blueprint for future pot parties. The Seattle Center contract notes that an outdoor marijuana smoking

area at Seattle Center is a trial program subject to periodic review. He emphasized that granting Livingston’s permit was a policy decision, not something the city was legally required to allow. “There’s nothing that says you have to allow marijuana smoking,” he said. Livingston’s party will start at 3 p.m. and run until 11 p.m. There will be an indoor area for partygoers as well as the outdoor smoking area, he said.

Construction crews work earlier this month on the second phase of the Twin Arrows Navajo Casino Resort. The project, along with other plans along Interstate 40 east of Flagstaff, Ariz., could transform the region, officials say. TAYLOR MAHONEYARIZONA DAILY SUN

Tribe turns to Arizona county for casino project’s expansion Ambitious plans offer ‘new frontier’ for Flagstaff By Eric Betz Arizona Daily Sun

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — The last cows are gone and a strangely oversized new road now meets the edge of the Drye family’s former pastures. Where the pavement ends, the piñons begin. The desolate shrublands reach across the horizon to the west until the San Francisco Peaks rise as the only landmark on the plateau. But not for long. Less than six months after celebrating their casino’s grand opening 25 miles east of Flagstaff, the Navajo Nation is doubling down on Twin Arrows. The tribe recently submitted development plans to Coconino County that include a gas station, outlet mall, big box retailers, housing development, restaurants, RV park and an entertainment complex complete with a theater, mini golf, arcade, bowling alley and laser tag. The plans also call

for 128 units of townhomes and condos plus another 32 lots for houses. The 70-acre complex is called The Outlook at Glittering Mountain. And because it’s not tribal trust land, the county will have to give final approval. The residences and some of the retail are designed to service the casino’s 600 current employees, but the Navajo Nation also hopes to draw more tourists, interstate travelers and local residents. Tribal officials say some of the construction funds have already been secured. The first phase of building is expected to be complete by next year, with $30 million to $50 million worth of construction on the entertainment pavilion and some retail. The final size of the entertainment complex will depend on the results of a feasibility study. If the full project is approved by the county, it could take eight to 10 years to complete. The shopping center complex will either drill its own wells or tap into the casino’s well water supply. For tribal developers, the project is a chance to deliver desperately needed jobs and

revenue to the reservation. And they’re not the only ones looking to build. Last November, the Hopis bought a massive piece of land from the Drye family on the other side of Interstate 40. It’s not yet clear what their intentions are for the property. And down the road near Meteor Crater, an international consortium of scientists is considering building a $130 million array of telescopes. County officials say the Interstate 40 corridor east of Flagstaff is brimming with opportunities. The building isn’t likely to come overnight, but in the coming years Coconino County officials will begin to create development plans for the first time in that area. “This is really like a new frontier out here and we’ve got to get it right,” said Coconino County District 4 Supervisor Mandy Metzger. “I’m very optimistic.” Metzger’s sprawling district has no incorporated areas other than a sliver of east Flagstaff. She sees the potential for jobs, housing and services as a positive for the county.

Fund: Applications accepted now Role: Winning dog to be named Continued from Page C-1 Empty Stocking Fund for help until she could land a new position. She was hesitant to apply at first, she said, because she wanted a job more than a handout. “It was a little embarrassing, but it’s better to have food for the kids,” she said. “I just had to lose the feeling of embarrassment.” Poor health has made it difficult for Guzman to hold onto jobs. Because of her anemia, doctors have told her that she can’t work as hard as she wants to work, Guzman said. Before she got the job cleaning restrooms, she was working at a local Target warehouse. One day while she was working there, co-workers told her she looked very pale and urged to her go home and rest. But she continued working until one woman said she was going to call an ambulance. “I told her not to call, because I needed to work,” Guzman recalled. But an ambulance came and took her to the hospital, where a doctor told her she shouldn’t work so many hours. She went to work the next day, anyway, but when she got there, a manager said he was dismissing her. When she asked why, she said, he told her it was because she had abandoned her job. Guzman had a similar situation while she worked at a local tortilla factory. While she was packing tortillas, she felt a sharp pain in her stomach. After work one day, she went to a doctor, who told her she had a hernia.

She asked for time off and was laid off for not showing up for work, she said. “I put in a lot of [job] applications around, but I just wouldn’t get a call back,” she said. Each time she lost a job, she would fall behind in rent and have to spend the little money she had saved, in combination with food stamps, to buy food for her children, Guzman said. Eventually, she was getting eviction warnings. “Even if it was just rice, beans and tortillas, I always made sure that my kids had that to eat, at least,” Guzman said. Guzman eventually moved to Española, where she found a more affordable house. She said she will always be thankful to the Empty Stocking Fund for its help last year. “The struggles I’ve been through, I don’t take them to heart because I know there’s always a solution,” she said. uuu

Skiers: New gear helps seniors Continued from Page C-1 skied more than the national average of five times per year, according to an NSAA survey released in August. “You don’t want to sit in your rocking chair and look at the view,” said 70-year-old Billy Kidd, who won a silver in the slalom at the 1964 Olympics. “You want to remember your days of youth and you love that feeling of adrenaline and dealing with the variables of skiing.” Clearly, others old enough to remember Kidd in his heyday feel the same way. Those ages 45-54 made up 20 percent of skiers last winter, up from 14 percent in the 1997-98 season; the 55-64 age group made up 12 percent, up from nearly 5 percent, and those 65 and older rose to 5.5 percent from 2.5 percent, according to the NSAA study. Kidd, who skis nearly daily in his role as an ambassador for the Steamboat Ski Resort, said one thing that has changed as he’s gotten older is his gear. Indeed, Kidd is a walking billboard for the latest innovations. His skis and poles are lightweight carbon fiber. His Osbe helmet does away with goggles and replaces them with a built-in visor that provides better peripheral vision. Certainly, there are challenges as skiers age, not the least of which is finding friends who are also still skiing. Clubs like the 70+ Ski Club, based in North Kingstown, R.I., with more than 4,000 members, and the Over the Hill Gang International based in Colorado Springs with 3,000 members, offer camaraderie, discounted tickets and ski trips near and far. Even those who retire to Florida still pursue their passion. The Florida Ski Council has 17 clubs in the state and at least one trip going every week of the ski season. These dedicated watchers of the discounts for skiers agree that the perks seniors used to get from ski resorts have been reduced as their numbers increase.

Several resorts have raised the eligibility age for discounted lift tickets, or they’ve limited deals to weekdays. “To be fair to the ski areas, it’s a business for them as well,” said Doug Lofland, 56, one of the owners of the Over The Hill Gang International. So what suggestions do experts have to help the rest of us ski into our Golden Years? u Stay in shape. u Try to choose slopes with less traffic so you can safely ski a little slower. u Think about afternoon sun and shadows. A west-facing slope will have better definition. u Walking in ski boots can be more challenging than skiing, so companies have developed lightweight shoes, like Pakems, that you can carry with during the day for a quick change. u Consider taking a gondola or chair lift down the mountain if weather sets in or you’re tired. u Consciously chose your danger level. “The repercussions of making a mistake are too great,” Kidd said. u And finally, enjoy, like the 89-year-old who sent the 70+ Ski Club a photo of herself skiing with her great grandchildren. “There are not many sports four generations can do together like that,” said club president 42-year-old Richard Lambert.

Fired lottery chief gets year’s salary ALBUQUERQUE — The fired director of the New Mexico Lottery will be getting one year’s pay and six months of health care coverage as part of a deal reached with the Lottery Board. The board voted during a closed meeting last week to immediately terminate Tom Romero’s contract. No explanation was given for his firing, and he has declined to discuss it. State lottery officials on Friday released new details about

Romero’s severance package. Under his contract, it could have amounted to $265,000, but Romero signed off on agreement for one year’s salary — $165,000 — plus health care coverage valued at about $5,700. State Rep. Bill Rehm, an Albuquerque Republican, told KOBTV the package amounts to a golden parachute that is being financed with taxpayer money. The Associated Press

Embattled owner vows to keep abortion clinic open By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press

JACKSON, Miss. — Abortion clinic owner Diane Derzis has stared down protesters, laughed off those who call her “baby killer” and smiled through clenched teeth while bantering with people who want to close her centers in the South. She has been an abortion rights advocate for decades and owned clinics since 1996, but Derzis is facing some of the biggest political and legal pressure she has ever seen. She spars with pastors and politicians alike, and her latest fight is to keep open her Mississippi clinic, the last one remaining in the state. “If they think they’re going to make me feel badly about what I do — not gonna happen,” said Derzis, a 59-year-old Virginia native who has lived in Alabama for decades.

Derzis is in a legal battle over a 2012 state law that requires the Mississippi clinic’s physicians to have admitting privileges at a local hospital. The fight is similar to one playing out in Texas, where a third of the state’s abortion clinics have closed since a law there was enacted earlier this year. The U.S. Supreme Court said this past week the Texas law can remain in effect

while a lawsuit is heard. The laws are the latest in a series of state-level restrictions across country. Supporters say they are designed to protect women’s health, while opponents say they chip away at the right to abortion established 40 years ago by the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision. Earlier this month, outside Derzis’ clinic in Mississippi’s

capital city, police officers tried to keep a couple dozen protesters and clinic supporters apart. Derzis stood on the sidewalk as the Rev. Philip “Flip” Benham, one of her most vocal critics, asked her if she’d repent and said he would pray for her. “I just love prayers. I’m the glad recipient of prayers,” Derzis said, looking past Benham. In addition to the facility in Jackson, Derzis owns a clinic in Columbus, Ga., and one in Richmond, Va. She owned and operated a Birmingham, Ala., clinic when it was bombed by Eric Rudolph in 1998. It was rebuilt, and she still owns the building. Derzis agreed to close the clinic in 2012 after the state Health Department found numerous health violations, including allowing unlicensed workers to administer medications. A physician then ran a clinic in the building, but a judge closed it in August because the facility wasn’t licensed for abortions. Benham, who heads up Operation Save American, a North

U.S. arrests son of cartel leader SAN DIEGO — The son of one of the world’s most-wanted drug lords was arrested at an Arizona border crossing to face drugtrafficking charges in the United States, authorities said Friday. Serafin Zambada, 23, was arrested Wednesday afternoon while crossing the border from Mexico in Nogales, Ariz., accompanied by his wife in a pedestrian lane, said Kelly Thornton, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Diego. The wife was detained and released, Thornton said. Zambada’s father is Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, who survived decades of turf wars and rose to the top of Mexico’s underworld through savvy deal-brokering. Ismael Zambada is considered the strategist of Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel, more involved in daily operations than his better-known boss, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. Serafin Zambada, a U.S. citizen, was scheduled to appear before a federal judge in Tucson, Ariz., on Monday to determine if he is eligible for bail. Prosecutors plan to ask that he be sent to San Diego to face federal charges of conspiracy to import methamphetamine and cocaine, and criminal forfeiture. The younger Zambada’s attorney, Saji Vettiyil, said his client would fight the charges. “My client is looking forward to the day when he can clear his name in a court of law. He has absolute faith in the legal system,” Vettiyil said. Serafin Zambada, also called “Sera,” is not known in Mexico for involvement in the drug trade. His indictment filed under seal in San Diego on Sept. 27 offers little detail, saying only that he conspired to bring at least 500 grams of methamphetamine and 5 kilograms of cocaine to the U.S. He was born in San Diego, said Thornton, who confirmed that he is Ismael Zambada’s son. Amy Roderick, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, also confirmed the identity. The Associated Press

als, which are based on those standards, reflect accepted scientific principles and don’t include creationism or intelligent design. Pearson, whose current textbook is used by more than half of Texas’ biology students, challenged 19 of the 20 errors alleged by a board-appointed reviewer. To address one of the criticisms, the publisher added a sentence to explain that much remained to be learned about evolution yet “every scientific test to date has supported Darwin’s basic ideas.” Among the purported errors was a contention that the textbook “seriously misrepresents the balance between gradualism and sudden appearance in the fossil record.” “The criticism is without merit,” Pearson wrote in a response. “Detailed studies show clearly that abundant examples of stasis, gradual change and rapid change can all be found within the fossil record. … Our text has accurately presented both models for the mode and tempo of evolutionary change, and no changes are necessary.” That position was reinforced by Ron Wetherington, an evolutionary anthropologist at Southern Methodist University.

Carolina-based anti-abortion group, said Derzis is “a mess.” He considered the judge’s action in Alabama as an answer to his prayers. “Finally, finally, finally, they closed that pit,” he said. “It’s a filthy, disgusting abortion mill.” Benham’s group identifies Mississippi as one of its five “states of refuge” — places with limited access to abortion, and where they hope the procedure will become completely unavailable. The group says the others are Arkansas, North and South Dakota and Wyoming. Just as protesters say they are following God’s will by praying outside clinics and trying to talk women out of abortions, Derzis says she, too, is led by divine guidance to provide women a safe place to terminate pregnancies. “I feel like God wants me to do this job,” said Derzis, who has a raspy smoker’s voice and a penchant for brightly painted fingernails and chunky jewelry. She started working as an abortion clinic counselor shortly after the first clinic opened in Alabama in the 1970s. Derzis talks openly about the

abortion she had when she was 20, newly married and in college. She said didn’t want children, and knew immediately she wanted to end the pregnancy. Derzis said her mother told her she’d regret it, but she hasn’t. “I thank God every day I had that abortion,” said Derzis, who later divorced and doesn’t have children. “It was not a great experience, but you know what? I had a safe abortion. And that’s what counts.” Derzis has been under increasing pressure since Mississippi’s Republican governor, Phil Bryant, signed the admitting privileges law. Bryant has declared he wants abortions to end in Mississippi. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Derzis’ clinic, is staffed by out-of-state OBGYNs who travel to Mississippi several times a month. Derzis said efforts to get admitting privileges for them have been rebuffed, either because hospitals are run by religious groups that oppose abortion or because hospitals simply won’t grant them to out-of-state physicians.

Symbol: Leaders received canes Continued from Page C-1 [Silver Bullet Productions], but about the importance of the story and quality of what was said,” said Pamela Pierce, a producer of the film and CEO of Silver Bullet Productions. Lincoln’s gesture is considered somewhat surprising, given that his grandfather was killed by an American Indian in 1786. And during his administration, Navajos were forced out of their homes in Eastern Arizona and Western New Mexico to an internment camp in an area called Bosque Redondo in the Pecos River Valley. But historians believe Michael Steck, who had been appointed superintendent for Indian affairs for the New Mexico territory, proposed the idea to Lincoln, who approved. Steck ordered the custom-made canes from a Philadelphia company and paid $5.50 each for them. Steck then presented each pueblo’s tribal leader with the cane. David Aubrey, director of the film, said in order to get approval from tribal leaders to tell the stories of their canes, pueblo members wanted to make sure the producers were going to accurately describe what the canes mean to them. “The canes as they see them really represent their sovereignty,” Aubrey said. “That’s the kind of respect they wish to be known for … therefore, they’re very valuable to the pueblos.” Contact Uriel J.

Eldorado resident, 91, recalls 1940s stage glamour as an NYC Rockette


By Dennis J. Carroll For The New Mexican


t 91, Viola Varble, a Radio City Music Hall Rockette of the mid-1940s, is still kickin’ — just maybe not as high. The Eldorado resident, at 5-foot-3, may be the shortest ever of those high-kicking, leggy legends of dance. Because of Varble’s diminutive stature, Rockettes founder Russell Markert put her at one end of his 36-member dancing line. “Because of the way they lined us up, with the tallest girls in the middle and the way the stage was built, the idea was we would all look the same height,” Varble said. “It was an optical illusion.” Back in the day, “every dancer wanted to be a Rockette,” said Varble, who moved to Santa Fe from St. Louis in 2009 to live with a daughter and son-in-law. “I was at the right place at the right time.” Life for Varble began very far from the New York stage in so many ways. She grew up on a farm near the industrial community of Circleville, Ohio, (originally designed in a circle centered around a courthouse) about 30 miles from Columbus and eons away in lifestyle and culture from her future among the footlights of New York City. “It was just breathtaking when I saw the big city and all the skyscrapers,” said Varble, who was a cheerleader at her 250-student Pickaway County School and an occasional bowler at the local lanes. “But I got in the groove.” Varble recalls how her mother would drive her, from the age of 5, to dance lessons in Columbus several times a week and and “watched every one of my performances.” Her mother also made many of Varble’s early costumes. After Varble’s high school graduation, on a trip to New York, Varble’s dance instructor teacher fanagled an audition for the 17-year-old for a dance troupe at the Shubert Theater. “They liked what I did, and they hired me. We were all totally shocked by that.” After a summer tour of performing with the troupe at state fairs on the Eastern Seabord, Varble returned to Ohio, but it wasn’t long before she was called back to New York to audition for another dance group. As a result, she was among the first USO entertainers to travel the


This Thanksgiving, two Santa Fe high school students are giving thanks for a historic program that has funded the creation of parks and protection of public lands throughout New Mexico for nearly 50 years. Maddy Boyd, a senior at Santa Fe Preparatory School, and Naomi Cantor, a senior at Desert Academy, wrote and performed a song that calls attention to how the Land and Water Conservation Fund has benefited New Mexico and thanks New Mexico’s two U.S. senators, Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich, for their efforts to protect the state’s public lands and community parks. The song was written to the tune of “Ain’t No Sunshine” by Bill Withers. In February 2013, Udall and Heinrich proposed bipartisan legislation that would fully and permanently fund the LWCF. Created by Congress in 1964, the fund provides money to federal, state and local governments to purchase land, water and wetlands and enhance community recreation for the benefit of all Americans. It is fully funded by oil and gas royalties from offshore drilling. The video was created as part of a project of New Energy Economy, where both students are interns. Several sites in New Mexico already have benefited from the fund, including Petroglyph National Monument, the Rio Grande Wild and Scenic River, City of Rocks State Park and Valles Caldera National Preserve. uuu Philip Apodaca, a 2010 graduate of Santa Fe High who wanted to be a helicopter pilot since he was 3 years old, has recently been contracted to join the U.S. Army branch of aviation. He has been a member of Army ROTC at The University of New Mexico for four years and is serving as the UNM battalion commander. He will graduate from UNM in May 2014 as a Distinguished Military Scholar and will be commissioned as a 2nd lieutenant. His pilot training will take place at Fort Rucker, Ala.

country, performing at military bases during World War II. The audition call from the Rockettes came soon afterward. “Unexpectedly, the Music Hall lost an end girl,” and they needed somebody right away,” Varble said. She said Markert was “very particular about the girls he hired,” and that besides being able to perform the tap numbers and the high kicks with grace and artistry, he also insisted on “high character.” Life as a Rockette from 1942 to 1946 was exciting, but at times exhausting,

she said. The day began with rehearsals at 6 a.m. followed by four shows — five shows during the Christmas and Easter holidays. In addition, the Rockettes also performed often for charity events at Madison Square Garden and other venues around the city. The Rockettes of that era worked seven days a week for three weeks followed by a week off. “Back then, they had a movie and then our stage show, which usually lasted an hour,” Varble said. She lived at the now-legendary Rehearsal Club on 53rd Street, just a few blocks from Radio City Music Hall. It was a temporary home for actresses and female dancers, singers and other entertainers hoping to land a career in the Big Apple. “It was like a girls’ dormitory,” Varble said, with strict rules and “certainly no hanky-panky.” She said that besides the long weeks, the toughest parts of being a Rockette were “the scoldings we got if we got out of the line or made some kind of mistake,” but that and the daunting work schedule were far overshadowed by the “thrill of dancing on that stage.” “It was a wonderful organization that really took care of us.” If you would like someone to be featured in this column, tell us about them at

Scratch pad

few years ago at a Japanese restaurant, I asked the sushi chef why I’d never seen a woman doing that job. He nodded solemnly and explained that, regrettably, it is impossible. Women cannot be sushi chefs because they have higher body temperatures than men, so when handling raw fish, women cook it a little. He was completely serious. I thought of this the other day when I read an article about why women are not permitted to drive in Saudi Arabia. An influential Saudi cleric grimly explained that it was because if women get into accidents, they might damage their ovaries, resulting in deformed Gene Saudi children, which is bad for the Weingarten whole country. Because it is safer in the The Washington back seat, simple patriotism dictates that Post only men drive. See how the use of illogic and selectively marshaled facts can be a powerful tool for explaining away simple bigotry and make us all feel better about inequities in society? It’s a tool that should be in wider use. The French, for example, made a serious mistake by trying to justify with complex sociopolitical arguments their culturally insensitive ban on head scarves in public schools; they should have simply pointed out that they were helping Muslim girls avoid the needless tragedy of “hat hair.” Similarly: u It’s OK that American women still earn only four-fifths of what men earn in the workplace, because the disparity keeps them angry and aggressive. This gives them a needed competitive tool, counterbalancing their natural tendency toward consensus-building and other docile, passive attitudes that inhibit corporate advancement. u It’s OK that some people are too poor to have health insurance, because that gives them a stronger incentive to take better care of themselves instead of subsisting on pork rinds and Twinkies, as such people are wont to do. u It’s OK better for society that gay people are not allowed to get married. Their extraordinary, disproportionate contributions in creative, passionate fields such as choreography, fashion design and entertainment would be diminished if they were forced, like the rest of us, into the passion-deadening yoke of matrimony. u It’s OK that the richest 1 percent of Americans own 40 percent of the wealth, because they already know how to handle it. If all their money were suddenly redistributed, most of us would just blow it on hookers, Cadillacs and Pabst. u Racism is OK, because without it, an entire genre of jokes would be lost, depleting mankind’s fragile humor reserve, an all-important tool in maintaining our precarious hold on sanity in an existentially terrifying world. Now I know what you are thinking. You are still stuck on the first paragraph, wondering whether women really are warmer than men. It bothered me, too, so I did a little research. It turns out that women’s core body temperature, on the average, actually is a fraction of a degree higher than men’s. But, interestingly, on the average, due to gender-related differences in peripheral circulation, women’s hands are a fraction of a degree colder than men’s. I think I am going to go back to that sushi restaurant and ask my fish guy why, in light of this new data, men are permitted to be sushi chefs.

UNM’s offense struggles without Gautsche, Carrier By Josh Dubow The Associated Press

FRESNO, Calif. — Derek Carr threw for 527 yards and a schoolrecord seven touchdowns in his final regular-season home game to help No. 15 Fresno State clinch a spot in the Mountain West title game with a 69-28 victory over Fresno St. 69 New Mexico on UNM 28 Saturday. Davante Adams had nine catches for 246 yards and four scores, and Josh Harper added 10 for 161 and three TDs as the Bulldogs (10-0, 7-0) gained a schoolrecord 820 yards and clinched first place in the West Division. They will likely host the conference championship game on Dec. 7 as long as they remain ahead of the Mountain Division winner in the BCS standings. The Lobos (3-8, 1-6) lost their 15th straight game against a ranked opponent as they struggled on offense without injured quarterback Cole Gautsche and running back Kasey Carrier and had no defensive answer to stop Carr and the Bulldogs’ bevy of playmakers. Fresno State scored touchdowns on five of its first six possessions to turn senior day into a daylong celebration that started with a ceremony for the departing players and ended with a division championship as the Bulldogs opened 10-0 for the first time since 1989.

Cardinals advance to AAA semifinals after major upset By Will Webber The New Mexican


oll on, Redemption Tour. On a mission to potentially avenge four of its five losses during the regular season, the Las Vegas Robertson football team pulled the biggest upset the state playoffs have seen in years with a stunning 22-13 win over previously undefeated St. Michael’s on a snowy Saturday afternoon at the Christian Brothers Athletic Complex. The ninth-seeded Cardinals (7-5) advance into next week’s Class AAA semifinals to face District 2AAA rival Taos (10-1).

The fifth-seeded Tigers won a postgame coin toss to determine home field advantage, meaning Robertson will visit Taos next Saturday at 1 p.m. Not even that could wipe the smile off Cardinals head coach Leroy Gonzalez’s face. As he gathered his players for an emotional postgame celebration, he was asked about how his team managed to take down mighty St. Michael’s (10-1). “That,” he began, “is how you punch somebody in the mouth!” Robertson held the potent Horsemen offense to just 197 total yards, including a pedestrian 129 in the rushing department. The Cardinals controlled

the game at the line of scrimmage, continuously shoving St. Michael’s off the ball while running backs Dominic Lucero (171 yards) and James Gonzales (123) sliced and diced their way through a Horsemen defense that had served as the backbone of the state’s top team for each of the last three seasons. “Heart and hard work,” Lucero said. “It’s determination. These guys got after us pretty good the first time and we knew, as a team, we were better than that. We showed we’re better than that.” In fact, they showed they were much better than perhaps anyone

NFL plays as a nation mourns By Tim Dahlberg The Associated Press


mericans grieved in front of their television sets on a brutally grim Sunday afternoon 50 years ago as a horse-drawn caisson took the body of President John F. Kennedy from the White House to lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda. In Dallas, a nightclub operator named Jack Ruby further stunned the nation that day by shooting Lee Harvey Oswald to death in blackand-white images broadcast across the country. And in seven U.S. cities, men put on their shoulder pads, strapped on their helmets and took the field to play games that suddenly didn’t seem so fun anymore. As unimaginable as it might seem today — and did seem to many even then — the NFL played on despite the assassination of a president just two days earlier. “Everyone has a different way of paying respects,” Commissioner Pete Rozelle said that day at Yankee Stadium. “I went to church today, and I imagine many of the people at the game here did, too. I cannot feel that playing the game was disrespectful, nor can I feel that I have made a mistake.” Rozelle was wrong on both counts, something he would later admit when he called his decision to play

St. Mike’s ends season, streak By James Barron The New Mexican

The tears were supposed to flow two weeks from now, not Saturday. The St. Michael’s Horsemen had a legacy to preserve. All Las Vegas Robertson had was vengeance in its heart. So when Joey Fernandez stood in front of his sullen, devastated group after the Cardinals landed a hay-maker of an upset with a 22-13 win in the Class AAA quarterfinals at Christian Brothers Athletic Complex, he talked in hushed tones as he tried to hold back tears. On a snowy, bitterly cold Saturday afternoon, the top-seeded Horsemen said goodbye to the 2013 season. And to a 23-game winning streak. And the chance to repeat as state champions. The loss more than stung. Armando Blea dropped his helmet to the ground after the team broke up its final huddle of the season. Sean Catanach cried as he was being consoled by the Horsemen faithful. Luke Sanchez, who missed the last 5 minutes of the game after getting his bell rung on a run, answered questions in hushed tones. “This will linger all the way ‘til next season,” said the senior. “I hope the juniors and the sophomores have that chip on their shoulder for next year.” All Fernandez could do was wax poetic about the premature end of the season — and hope the loss plants a seed for the 2014 edition that spouts into similar success. “It’s always got to end and you can’t always stay on top,” Fernandez said. “It’s good to be on top, but sometimes it’s better to cruise under the radar, lose a few games

Bulls’ Rose needs knee surgery, out indefinitely By Andrew Seligman The Associated Press

CHICAGO — Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose is out indefinitely because of torn cartilage in his right knee that will require surgery, the team said Saturday. The former MVP has a medial meniscus tear, and there’s no immediate timetable for his return. Rose had an MRI in Los Angeles on Saturday after he was injured a night earlier at Portland. He won’t be with the team for its remaining four games on its six-game trip. The three-time All-Star sat out last season recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Now, it’s his other knee that’s injured. “It’s sad, knowing how hard he worked to get back,” said All-Star guard Chris Paul of the Clippers, who will host the Bulls on Sunday. Rose’s injury occurred in the third quarter against the Trail Blazers. He lost his footing while trying to change direction to get back on defense when Nicolas Batum stole a pass from Joakim Noah and started the other way. Rose limped across the court and couldn’t put any weight on his knee. After the Blazers scored, he came out of the game during a timeout. It didn’t appear there was any contact on the play. Rose was unable to return and was on crutches afterward.

“I feel bad for him,” said Clippers All-Star Blake Griffin, who tore his meniscus in college at Oklahoma and was playing a few days later. “The good news is it’s not nearly as bad as what he went through

Monte del Sol stomps Lady Wildcats The New Mexican

Alicia Roybal did more than just get a double-double in the season opener, she made her way into the Monte del Sol record book. The senior guard broke the Lady Dragon single-game scoring record with 36 points to go with 13 rebounds in a 57-26 win over Desert Academy at the New Mexico School for the Deaf on Saturday afternoon. She was also 12-for-15 from the free-throw line. “She was just all over the place,” Monte del Sol head coach Ralph Casaus said. The Lady Dragons (1-1) had

a 29-16 lead at the half before scoring 17 points in the third quarter to really get ahead of the Lady Wildcats (0-1). “We kept the pressure on them in the second half,” Casaus said. “The press really did them in.” SANTA FE PREPARATORY 61, TIERRA ENCANTADA (JV) 12 Four players scored in double figures for the Lady Blue Griffins as they rolled over the Tierra Encantada junior varsity squad in their season opener. Desiray Anderson led with 16 points while Alexis Mundt added 14. The Lady Blue Griffins (1-0) held a 32-6 halftime lead before seeing more of the same in the second half.

Prep will travel to Questa on Tuesday where they will face a Lady Wildcat team that beat them by three points last year. It will also be the first test for the Lady Blue Griffins. “We’ve struggled under pressure,” Prep head coach Anika Amon said. “That’s something we need to work on.” BOYS BASKETBALL MONTE DEL SOL 65, DESERT ACADEMY 45 The difference between the first half and the second was simple for the Dragons — they played with effort. Even with a sluggish first half, Monte del Sol led 35-31, but head coach Nick Rivera felt

his team needed to step up its intensity on both ends of the court. “The first half was back and forth, but we weren’t pushing the ball that much,” Rivera said. “We weren’t getting that extra shot. It was one shot and that was it. they were being lazy, and after I talked to them during halftime, they woke up and were fine.” Desert Academy scored just nine points in the third quarter as the Dragons (2-0) upped the margin to 52-41. Antonio Tapia had 23 points to lead Monte del Sol, while Omar Ndiaye added 21. Ryan Vanderham chipped in with 13 points, and Peter Bartlett had four blocks.

of the goal line on a run up the middle. “I could make excuses about how we were missing this guy or that guy last time we played on this field,” Leroy Gonzalez said. “Truth is, they kicked our butt. But that was last time.” St. Michael’s opened the second half with an impressive 61-yard, six-play touchdown drive capped by Ortega’s 6-yard run, one that established a new school record for TDs (31) in a single season by one player. The ensuing 2-point conversion attempt failed, and two possessions later the Cardinals struck again on a 1-yard Lesperance sneak on the first play of the fourth quarter. Neither team scored again, giving rise to perhaps the biggest upset the AAA playoffs have seen since No. 8 Albuquerque Academy stunned No. 1 Lovington in the quarterfinals of the 2007 season — a year in which St. Michael’s beat Robertson in the state championship game. “I guess you can say we’re a team of destiny,” James Gonzales said. “But like coach said, we can redeem four of the losses we’ve had so far in the playoffs. We got the first two. Now we can get Taos and maybe [Ruidoso]. Maybe it is destiny.”

No. 3 Louisville flies past Fairfield

Oklahoma St. hands Baylor 1st loss

The Associated Press

UNCASVILLE, Conn. — Chris Jones scored 15 points to lead No. 3 Louisville to a 71-57 victory Louisville 71 over FairFairfield 57 field on Saturday in the Hall of Fame Tipoff Tournament. Montrezl Harrell added 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Cardinals (5-0), who extended their winning streak to 21 games, including last season’s run to the NCAA championship. Maurice Barrow paced Fairfield (1-4) with 14 points and Marcus Gilbert scored 11. Louisville will take on No. 24 North Carolina in Sunday’s championship game. The Tar Heels beat Richmond, 82-72 in Saturday’s first semifinal. The Stags stayed with the Cardinals for much of the first half and led 11-9 early on. But Louisville went on a 28-12 run to close the half and led by as many as 21 after the break. NO. 11 MEMPHIS 98, NICHOLLS STATE 59 In Memphis, Tenn., Austin Nichols scored 20 points, and Joe Jackson had 18 to power Memphis to the win. Nichols, a freshman forward, connected on 9 of 15 shots to help Memphis (2-1) rebound from a 101-80 loss to No. 7 Oklahoma State on Tuesday. Jackson went 14 of 15 from the free-throw line. Michael Dixon Jr. added 16 points for the Tigers, while Nick King had 12 points. Jeremy Smith had 16 points for Nicholls State (0-4), which closed out a four-game road trip to open its season. Nicholls State had 18 turnovers and shot 36 percent from the field. NO. 12 WISCONSIN 76, ORAL ROBERTS 67 In Madison, Wis., Frank Kaminsky scored 21 points to lead five Wisconsin players in double figures. Josh Gasser added 15 points for Wisconsin (6-0), and Ben Brust finished with 12. Traevon Jackson scored 11, and Sam Dekker had 10.

Shawn Glover led Oral Roberts (2-3) with 24 points. Bobby Word had 14 points and D.J. Jackson finished with 11. Oral Roberts trailed the entire game, but pulled within four points twice in the final minutes, including 66-62 after Glover converted a three-point play. But the Golden Eagles could not get over the hump as Wisconsin shot 8 of 8 from the foul line the rest of the way, including four from Jackson. NO. 23 CREIGHTON 82, TULSA 72 In Omaha, Neb., Doug McDermott scored 21 of his 33 points in the second half, and Austin Chatman had a career-high 19 for Creighton. McDermott recorded his 16th career 30-point game. He also became the first Creighton player since Cyril Baptiste in 1969-70 to open a season with four straight 20-point games. The Bluejays (4-0), playing as a Top 25 team for the first time this season, opened the second half on a 13-4 run to increase its 42-41 halftime lead to 55-45. McDermott had eight points during the spurt, closing the surge with two straight 3-pointers. Rashad Smith had 21 points, Pat Swilling added 18 and James Woodard 11 for Tulsa (0-4). Shaquille Harrison, who was averaging a team-high 19.5 points, was held to seven. NO. 24 NORTH CAROLINA 82, RICHMOND 72 In Uncasville, Conn., Marcus Paige scored 26 points, Brice Johnson had 24, and North Carolina bounced back from its first loss of the season. The Tar Heels (3-1) were up 66-62 with just under 4 minutes to play when Richmond’s Terry Allen picked up his fourth foul. Johnson made a putback that started the run that gave the Tar Heels control of the game. A Paige 3-pointer made it 71-62 and North Carolina held on down the stretch. Cedrick Lindsay scored 29 points for Richmond. Kendall Anthony added 13. Johnson added 12 rebounds for the sophomore’s first career doubledouble.

Prosecutor: Decision in Winston sex assault case unlikely this week By Gary Fineout The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — State Attorney Willie Meggs said Saturday it is unlikely that a final decision will be made before Thanksgiving on whether to charge Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston in a sexual assault case. Meggs’s comments came just a day after the family of the alleged victim sent out a statement disputing the victim consented to sex with Winston as had been suggested by his attorney earlier this week. “To be clear, the victim did not consent. This was a rape,” the family said in the statement, released late Friday. Earlier last week, Timothy Jansen, an attorney representing Winston, suggested that the player and the alleged victim may have had consensual sex. Jansen made his comments after results from a DNA report showed Winston’s DNA was found in the underwear of the accuser. Jansen said he was “not surprised” that the DNA was found and that he “anticipated” it would be discovered. The family in its statement added that the “consent defense is too little too late and is clearly reactive damage control by Jansen after learning the DNA matched his client.” Prosecutors have the DNA report and have also interviewed the victim. Meggs on Friday said that

prosecutors need to do four or five things to wrap up their investigation. But a day later the veteran prosecutor said that “not everything has fallen into place.” “I very seriously doubt that we will be finished by Thanksgiving,” Meggs said. “We still haven’t gotten everything we need to get.” The alleged sexual assault was first reported to police in December. The family said earlier this week that the victim did not know the identity of her attacker until early January, when she identified him as Winston. The family has been sharply critical of the way Tallahassee police have handled the case. The family says they pushed to have a DNA sample taken from Winston only to be told by a police detective that it would alert Winston and make the case public. The statement released Friday called it “significant” that the DNA matches Winston and questioned why Jansen did not previously assert that the sex was consensual. Tallahassee police have defended their handling of the case. The interim chief said this week that the case was placed on inactive status back in February after police were told the alleged victim did not wish to prosecute the case. Patricia Carroll, an attorney representing the accuser, has denied that the woman wanted to drop the investigation.

The Associated Press

STILLWATER, Okla. — Clint Chelf put Oklahoma State well within reach of a Big 12 Conference championship, dooming Baylor’s national title aspirations in the process. Chelf passed for a Okla. St. 49 career-high 370 yards Baylor 17 and accounted for four touchdowns as No. 11 Oklahoma State took down another national-championship hopeful, easily defeating No. 3 Baylor 49-17 on Saturday night. The loss for the Bears leaves Alabama, Florida State and Ohio State as the lone remaining unbeatens near the top of the BCS standings — and they’ll certainly line up in that order when the new numbers come out Sunday. Oklahoma State has now won 10 or more games in three of the last four seasons, and can win the Big 12 by beating rival Oklahoma at home in two weeks. Chelf, who lost the starting job earlier this season for the Cowboys (10-1, 7-1 Big 12 Conference), threw for three touchdown passes and ran for a score — continuing his mastery of the stunned Bears in front of a record crowd of 60,218 in Boone Pickens Stadium. The senior also had a 48-yard reception and finished with 438 yards of total offense. He was 19-of-25 passing. Tracy Moore added five catches for 126 yards for Oklahoma State. Bryce Petty was 28-of-48 passing for 359 yards for Baylor (9-1, 6-1), which had its 13-game winning streak snapped and hasn’t won in Stillwater since 1939. The Bears entered Saturday averaging a national-best 61.2 points and 684.8 yards per game. They had no answers for a Cowboys’ defense that held the high-powered attack in check most of the way. Oklahoma State forced three Baylor fumbles and also stopped the Bears on two key fourth-down attempts in the second half — both which led to Cowboys’ touchdowns. Baylor finished with 453 yards of total offense, and Antwan Goodley had 10 catches for 118 yards receiving. The Cowboys, led by Chelf, finished with 594 yards of total offense. After falling behind 35-3, Baylor appeared on the verge of cutting the lead to 35-17 early in the fourth quarter. However, Petty fumbled deep in Oklahoma State territory and Tyler Patmon returned it 78 yards for a touchdown to put the Cowboys up 42-10. The score put the exclamation point on a thoroughly one-sided performance. Chelf lost the starting job earlier this year to sophomore J.W. Walsh, slowly working his way back to the role of top option for the Cowboys. The senior accounted for four touchdowns in last week’s win over Texas, but he was at his absolute best on Saturday night — capping the stunning performance with a 33-yard touchdown pass to Jhajuan Seales. Baylor appeared on its way to the early lead when Petty broke free on a third-andtwo on the Bears’ second possession — with no defenders in his path to the end zone. However, the quarterback — who entered the game leading the Big 12 in total offense — tripped short of the end zone and fell down at the Oklahoma State 1-yard line. Two plays later, Shock Linwood fumbled when he tried to stretch out for the touchdown — with James Castleman knocking the ball loose and recovering the ball for the Cowboys. NO. 10 STANFORD 63, CALIFORNIA 13 Stanford is back on top of the Pac-12 North after Arizona did to Oregon what Southern California did to the Cardinal last week. Though this upset was far more surprising and emphatic. The fifth-ranked Ducks had their national championship hopes smashed by Arizona, 42-16 on Saturday as No. 10 Stanford was routing California. The results give Stanford the Pac-12 North title for a second straight season. Oregon (9-2) might be able to get an atlarge BCS bid if it can close out with a victory against Oregon State, but it’s looking like a bit of a long shot now. Oregon lost for the second time in three games. In the last three weeks the Ducks have lost to Stanford to give the Cardinal control of the division, then regained control when Stanford fell to USC, and now have given it away again. NO. 1 ALABAMA 49, CHATTANOOGA 0 TUSCALOOSA, Ala., AJ McCarron passed for two touchdowns and became No. 1 Alabama’s winningest quarterback. McCarron completed 13 of 16 passes for 171 yards before leaving one drive into the second half of his final game at BryantDenny Stadium for the Crimson Tide (11-0). He improved to 36-2 as a starter, breaking a tie with Jay Barker for the school mark. McCarron and Alabama got an easy tuneup for the Iron Bowl against No. 6 Auburn to determine the Southeastern Conference Western Division champion. The Tide produced its third shutout of the year and blocked a field goal against the FCS Mocs (8-4). NO. 2 FLORIDA STATE 80, IDAHO 14 In Tallahassee, Fla., Jameis Winston threw for 225 yards and four touchdowns as No. 2 Florida State broke a school record for points in a game. Florida State (11-0) broke the school record of 77 points scored in 1995 to remain unbeaten. The Seminoles continue to focus on foot-

ball while the ongoing sexual assault investigation of Winston casts a shadow over the program. State attorney Willie Meggs said Saturday it is unlikely that a final decision will be made before Thanksgiving on whether to charge the quarterback. Florida State is now two wins from a likely berth in the BCS championship game. NO. 4 OHIO STATE 42, INDIANA 14 In Columbus, Ohio, Braxton Miller ran for 144 yards and two touchdowns and passed for two more Saturday to lead No. 4 Ohio State to a 42-14 victory over Indiana, extending the Buckeyes’ school-record win streak to 23 in a row. The snowy victory clinched a division title for the Buckeyes (11-0, 7-0), locking up a spot opposite Michigan State in the Big Ten championship game on Dec. 7. Carlos Hyde became the first running back to go more than 1,000 yards rushing in Urban Meyer’s 12 years as a head coach. He ran for 117 yards and two scores. Ohio State’s defense throttled the Hoosiers (4-7, 2-5), who came in averaging 39 points a game. ARIZONA 42, NO. 5 OREGON 16 In Tucson, Ariz., Ka’Deem Carey ran for 206 yards and four touchdowns while becoming Arizona’s all-time leading rusher. Coming off a disappointing home loss to Washington State, Arizona (7-4, 4-4 Pac-12) didn’t back off the throttle of its up-tempo offense against the fast-paced Ducks. With Carey bursting through the line to punish defenders and B.J. Denker dinking and dashing with a variety of fakes, the Wildcats jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead and kept going for their first win over a top-five team since knocking off No. 1 Washington 1992. Oregon (9-2, 6-2) gave the Wildcats plenty of help with three turnovers and turning it over twice more on downs to end its national title hopes and, possibly, its four-year run of BCS bowls. NO. 7 CLEMSON 52, THE CITADEL 6 In Clemson, S.C., Tajh Boyd threw for five touchdowns and 288 yards in the final home game of his career. The game was more of a celebration than a contest for the Tigers (10-1), who now have not lost in 28 games against Football Championship Subdivision opponents. Clemson didn’t score on its first possession, but made it to the end zone the next five times it touched the ball. Boyd had touchdown passes of 8, 9, 19, 24 and 30 yards. He ended the game with 102 passing TDs in his career and tied the Tigers record of five passing TDs in a game for the sixth time. Three times Boyd has thrown for five scores in the first half. Clemson outgained The Citadel (5-7) 558 yards to 172 yards. NO. 8 MISSOURI 24, NO. 24 MISSISSIPPI 10 In Oxford, Miss., Henry Josey rushed for two touchdowns, Marcus Murphy added another, and No. 8 Missouri rolled. The Tigers (10-1, 6-1 Southeastern Conference) is now one victory away from clinching the SEC East title. The Tigers host Texas A&M next weekend. Missouri jumped out to a 17-3 lead by halftime and led by a comfortable margin for most of the second half. James Franklin completed 12 of 19 passes for 142 yards and an interception in his first start since a shoulder injury caused him to miss four games. Josey rushed for 95 yards. NO. 18 LSU 34, NO. NO. 9 TEXAS A&M 10 In Baton Rouge, La., Terrance Magee rushed for a career-high 149 yards, and LSU’s defense pulled the plug on Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M’s video-game offense. Zach Mettenberger completed 11-of-20 passes for 193 yards and two touchdowns on a cold, wet and windy afternoon. Jarvis Landry highlighted his four-catch, 87-yard performances with touchdowns of 40 and 10 yards. LSU (8-3, 4-3 Southeastern Conference) piled up 324 yards on the ground and outgained Texas A&M (8-3, 4-3) in total yards, 517-299. NO. 12 SOUTH CAROLINA 70, COASTAL CAROLINA 10 In Columbia, S.C., Connor Shaw passed for a touchdown and ran for a score in less than a quarter of work as South Carolina scored the most points in Steve Spurrier’s nine seasons as coach. The Gamecocks (9-2) scored on their first six possessions and surpassed their output

from a 69-24 win over Troy in 2010. And it came with South Carolina resting several starters for rival Clemson next Saturday night, including defensive linemen Jadeveon Clowney and Kelcy Quarles and the Southeastern Conference’s leading rusher in Mike Davis. The Gamecocks won their record 17th straight game at home and Shaw improved to 25-5 as a starter, moving past Todd Ellis’ wins mark NO. 13 MICHIGAN STATE 30, NORTHWESTERN 6 In Evanston, Ill., Connor Cook threw for a career-high 293 yards, Jeremy Langford ran for 150, and Michigan State clinched a spot in the Big Ten title game. Cook threw for two touchdowns. Langford ran for two scores, and the Spartans (10-1, 7-0) reached the conference title game for the second time in three years. Langford ran 20 yards untouched for the game’s first touchdown in the second quarter. He sealed it with a 37-yard scoring run in the fourth after Kurtis Drummond picked off a short pass by Trevor Siemian, sending Michigan State to its seventh straight win and Northwestern (4-7, 0-7) to its seventh loss in a row. NO. 19 ARIZONA STATE 38, NO. 14 UCLA 33 In Pasadena, Calif., Taylor Kelly passed for 225 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 99 yards and another score, and Arizona State hung on in the fourth quarter to clinch its first Pac-12 South title. Marion Grice had 95 yards rushing and 72 yards receiving for the surging Sun Devils (9-2, 7-1 Pac-12), who will face Stanford in the league title game in two weeks. If Arizona State beats Arizona in the Territorial Cup game next week, the Sun Devils will host the Cardinal. NO. 16 WISCONSIN 20, MINNESOTA 7 In Minneapolis, James White rushed for 125 yards and a touchdown, and No. 16 Wisconsin beat Minnesota for the 10th straight time. Jared Abbrederis had seven catches for 67 yards and a touchdown, and Chris Borland recovered two fumbles and forced one to tie the NCAA record for career fumbles caused. After the game, the Badgers (9-2, 6-1 Big Ten) hoisted Paul Bunyan’s Axe and used it to chop the Gophers goal post when the time ran out. Aaron Hill returned an interception for a touchdown and David Cobb rushed for 68 yards for the Golden Gophers (8-3, 4-3). But Philip Nelson completed just 7 of 23 passes for 83 yards and the Gophers turned the ball over three times to snap a four-game winning streak. NO. 21 LOUISVILLE 24, MEMPHIS 17 In Louisville, Ky., Teddy Bridgewater threw for 220 yards and a touchdown in what could be his final home game for Louisville. The Cardinals used a 17-point surge over the second and third quarters to provide a cushion. Louisville (10-1, 6-1 American Athletic Conference) seemed in control leading 24-3 before quarterback Paxton Lynch rallied Memphis (3-7, 1-5) with a 4-yard run early in the fourth quarter and a 6-yard TD pass to Jesse Milleson with 6:07 remaining. NO. 22 OKLAHOMA 41, KANSAS STATE 31 In Manhattan, Kan., Brennan Clay ran for a career-high 200 yards and two touchdowns, and Sooners coach Bob Stoops moved past Barry Switzer for the most wins in school history. It was the 157th victory at Oklahoma for Stoops, and it came against his former mentor. Stoops was a defensive assistant under Kansas State coach Bill Snyder from 1989-95. Freshman Trevor Knight, filling in for the injured Blake Bell, threw for 171 yards and accounted for two TDs for the Sooners (9-2, 6-2 Big 12). He made do without running back Damien Williams and wide receiver Lacoltan Bester, who were reportedly suspended earlier in the week. NO. 25 DUKE 28, WAKE FOREST 21 In Winston-Salem, N.C., Anthony Boone threw three touchdown passes, and No. 25 Duke held on for its seventh straight win. Brandon Connette rushed 3 yards for the go-ahead score late in the third quarter, and Boone was 24 of 29 for 256 yards. The Blue Devils (9-2, 5-2 ACC) fell behind 14-0 before rallying to match the school record for victories and remain in control of the Coastal Division.

Pacers beat short-handed 76ers, win 3rd straight The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — Roy Hibbert had 27 points and 13 rebounds, Paul George added 19 points, and Indiana beat Philadelphia. Michael Carter-Williams scored 29 points and Evan Turner had 21 points and 11 rebounds for the shorthanded 76ers. Spencer Hawes, the team’s second-leading scorer, didn’t dress because of a sore left knee and Tony Wroten (back) and Thaddeus Young (personal) didn’t travel with the team, leaving the Sixers with just nine players in uniform. Lance Stephenson added 18 points and David West had 17 points and 11 rebounds in Indiana’s third straight win, while George Hill finished with 11 points. The Pacers (12-1) are 7-0 at home. HEAT 101, MAGIC 99 In Miami, LeBron James’ jumper with 15.1 seconds left put Miami ahead for good, and the Heat rallied from 16 points down in the second half to beat the Orlando Magic. Dwyane Wade scored 27 points in his return to the lineup after missing two games to rest his knees, James added

NFL Week 12

22 and Chris Bosh had 15 for the Heat, who have won six straight. KINGS 103, CLIPPERS 102 In Los Angeles, Chris Paul scored 22 points, hitting a goahead free throw with 2.5 seconds left, to help the Clippers beat the Sacramento Kings after Los Angeles blew a 20-point lead in the first half. DeAndre Jordan had 17 points and 12 rebounds, and Blake Griffin finished with 16 points and 10 boards for the Clippers, who have won 11 of their last 13 against the Kings. J.J. Redick added 15 points. ROCKETS 112, TIMBERWOLVES 101 In Houston, Aaron Brooks scored a season-high 26 points to pick up the slack for the injured James Harden, and Houston beat Minnesota. The Rockets led throughout, and Omri Casspi, Jeremy Lin and Brooks made consecutive 3-pointers in a 9-0 run to start the fourth quarter and extend the lead to 91-74. CELTICS 94, HAWKS 87 In Atlanta, Brandon Bass had 17 points, seven rebounds and two key blocks and Boston surged past Atlanta. Jeff Green had 16 points and Jared Sullinger scored 15 points and grabbed nine rebounds as

the Celtics snapped a six-game losing streak. Al Horford led the Hawks with 18 points and seven rebounds, and Jeff Teague had 13 points and 10 assists. Atlanta had won four of five games before losing for just the second time this season at home. WIZARDS 98, KNICKS 89 In Washington, the Knicks took their poor play at home with them on the road, allowed Washington’s John Wall to score 31 points and dropped into a last-place tie in the Atlantic Division with a loss to the Wizards. Wall registered at least 30 points in consecutive games for the first time in his NBA career, after scoring 37 in a loss to Toronto on Friday. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft also had seven assists and a soaring block on Iman Shumpert’s layup attempt in the closing seconds. SPURS 126, CAVALIERS 96 In San Antonio, Danny Green had 17 points, and the San Antonio Spurs had a season-high 16 3-pointers, rolling past the Cleveland Cavaliers for their 10th straight victory. Patty Mills had 15 points, Tony Parker added 12 points and Tiago Splitter and Marco Belinelli each had 10 points for San

By John Boell Newsday

JETS (5-5) at RAVENS (4-6)

JAGUARS (1-9) at TEXANS (2-8)

Line: Ravens by 3½ Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: It hasn’t taken too long for the anti-Geno Smith talk to start picking up, has it? The whispers for backup Matt Simms are starting to get louder. I couldn’t believe the Jets got blown out in Buffalo. But even Gang Green’s defense has its limits when it is constantly put in bad positions by inopportune turnovers. I’m not sure this is a great spot for the Jets, but if their pattern of win, loss, win continues, they are on course for a win. I just want a cover. The Jets have covered four straight games after a loss. The main reason I’ll pick Rex & Co. is his old team, which has won or lost five of their last seven by three or fewer points. Translation: They don’t win big and usually play close games. I’ll take the points. THE PICK: JETS

Line: Texans by 10 Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: I might have to call Newsday’s media writer Neil Best to find out how many people actually watch this game. Then, I can request that they all have their NFL viewing memberships revoked. How is a 2-8 team favored by 10 points? THE PICK: JAGUARS

BUCCANEERS (2-8) at LIONS (6-4) Line: Lions by 9 Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: After last week’s loss, which included a botched fake field-goal attempt, Lions coach Jim Schwartz made like the Lion in the Wizard of Oz: “Don’t say I’m scared because we ain’t,” he said. “When I say we, I mean me.” Scared, no. A bit misguided, yep. I’m not afraid to take the Bucs, who have won two straight and covered three in a row. THE PICK: BUCS

BEARS (6-4) at RAMS (4-6) Line: Rams by 1 Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: Quick: Name the No. 3 offense in points per game behind Denver and New Orleans? I was surprised it was the Bears. The Rams are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games. THE PICK: BEARS

VIKINGS (2-8) at PACKERS (5-5) Line: Packers by 4½ Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: Aaron Rodgers held his usual midweek news conference and told the reporters in attendance: “I just missed you guys a lot.” I imagine the Packers feel the same way about their injured starting QB as the Pack is mired in a three-game skid. The Pack finds a way to get it done. THE PICK: PACKERS

CHARGERS (4-6) at CHIEFS (9-1) Line: Chiefs by 4½ Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: How will the Chiefs respond after their first loss? San Diego, which has lost three straight, is going to find out. KC, which has something to prove, will get back on track. THE PICK: CHIEFS

PANTHERS (7-3) at DOLPHINS (5-5) Line: Panthers by 4½ Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: I’m not sure there’s a team I’d want to face less than the Panthers, who boast a tough no-name defense and a wellrounded offense. They’ve won and covered six straight. No letdown here. Miami is just trying to keep things together amid the chaos. THE PICK: PANTHERS

STEELERS (4-6) at BROWNS (4-6)

COLTS (7-3) at CARDINALS (6-4) Line: Cardinals by 2½ Time: 2:05 p.m. Bottom line: I’d love to be on the sidelines before this game and listen to the banter between Cardinals coach Bruce Arians and his former Colts players. Remember, Arians was Indy’s offensive coordinator and took over as interim head coach last season when Chuck Pagano battled leukemia. Arizona is 4-7 ATS in its last 11 home games, while Indy is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 as an underdog. THE PICK: COLTS

TITANS (4-6) at RAIDERS (4-6) Line: Titans by 1 Time: 2:05 p.m. Bottom line: Could there by a QB controversy in Oakland? Penn State product Matt McGloin threw three touchdowns and no interceptions in his debut last week as the Raiders scored a season-high 28 points in a win over the Texans. The Titans are 4-0 ATS on the road this season. Worth a shot. THE PICK: TITANS

COWBOYS (5-5) at GIANTS (4-6) Line: Giants by 2½ Time: 2:25 p.m. Bottom line: Lowdown? The winner here still has a good shot at winning the NFC East, which is the only way a team in this once-proud division makes the playoffs. Looking at the Giants’ last four games, and I know they were probably owed a few breaks. But, boy, have they been fortunate with four straight covers and victories — all against teams with below-average quarterbacks. They won’t be so lucky against Tony Romo, perhaps the most vilified player in the NFL the past few years. There’s no middle ground with Poor Tony. He’s either loved or hated. I think the Cowboys are the most talented team in the division. They’re also 5-2 against the spread (ATS) in their last seven NFC games. THE PICK: COWBOYS

BRONCOS (9-1) at PATRIOTS (7-3) Line: Broncos by 2½ Time: 6:30 p.m. Bottom line: This is a game I’ll tape and keep on my DVR for historic purposes. When Peyton Manning (470 TDs) and Tom Brady (348 TDs) meet, this game will have starting QBs with the most combined TD passes (818) in NFL history. Brady is 9-4 all-time vs. Manning, who is 2-9 overall — including playoffs — in New England. THE PICK: PATRIOTS MONDAY NIGHT

49ERS (6-4) at REDSKINS (3-7) Line: 49ers by 5½ Time: 6:40 p.m. Bottom line: The Redskins probably had their playoff hopes dashed in Philly. The Niners have lost two straight and need to rebound quickly with the playoffs nearing. This line scares me because everyone seems to love the 49ers. Tread softly. THE PICK: 49ERS

Line: Browns by 1½ Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: Two of the six AFC teams with a 4-6 record. The Jets and Miami are 5-5. All eight are battling for the sixth and final playoff spot. The Steelers are 1-5 ATS in their last BYE WEEK: Buffalo, Cincinnati, Philadelsix road games, but they looked great last week. Call it a hunch. THE PICK: STEELERS phia, Seattle

Antonio (12-1), which tied the best start in franchise history. The Spurs never trailed while scoring a season high in points. BOBCATS 96, BUCKS 72 In Milwaukee, Al Jefferson scored 19 points, Gerald Henderson added 17 and the Charlotte Bobcats handed the Milwaukee Bucks their eighth straight loss. Jefferson, in his second game back from an ankle injury, added seven rebounds for Charlotte, which has won two of three. Khris Middleton (20 points) led the Bucks, who shot just 35 percent. Milwaukee’s losing streak is its longest since closing out the 2007-8 season with eight consecutive losses. NUGGETS 102, MAVERICKS 100 In Denver, Randy Foye made a go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:11 left, and the Denver Nuggets hung on to beat the Dallas Mavericks. Ty Lawson scored 20 points to lead the Nuggets, who won their fifth straight at home while ending Dallas’ four-game winning streak. Kenneth Faried had 18 points and 14 rebounds, and Foye finished 17 points. Dirk Nowitzki had 27 points but missed a shot at the end that would have sent the game into overtime.

one, and that’s our approach,” said Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who has 21 touchdowns and six interceptions. One thing the Cowboys won’t have to worry about is their coach. Owner Jerry Jones said Jason Garrett will return next season. “I’m disappointed we don’t have a better record, but he has got us in position to win the division and got a team here I firmly believe has the ability to be one of the better-playing teams at the end,” Jones said. Dallas will face a somewhat new-look Giants, especially on defense. The unit has given up two touchdowns in the current winning streak, the first on a 5-yard drive by Oakland after it forced a fumble on the opening kickoff. While the Giants haven’t had a breakout game on offense, they are playing better. Eli Manning has had two interceptions in the winning streak after throwing 15 in the first six games. The line has stabilized, and the return of Andre Brown from a broken leg two weeks ago has the running game in gear.

Mourns: Rozelle regretted choice Continued from Page D-1 the games the worst mistake he made in 29 years as commissioner. But play them they did, from stadiums in the East to the Los Angeles Coliseum even as the rival American Football League canceled its slate of games and most colleges had canceled theirs the day before. Rozelle would later say he made his decision the afternoon of the assassination based partly on advice from Pierre Salinger, the White House press secretary, who told him Kennedy would have wanted the games played. The decision was made a bit easier by the fact teams in Dallas and Washington were both playing on the road that weekend and the NBA and NHL went on with their limited schedules. But even within the league there were deep divisions on the propriety of playing before Kennedy had even been laid to rest. The Redskins offered to forgo their $75,000 guarantee so they wouldn’t have to take the train to Philadelphia, and Eagles President Frank McNamee was so unhappy about his team playing that he went to a memorial for the president at Independence Hall rather than the game. “Simply and flatly the game is being played by order of the commissioner,” McNamee said tersely. If there were any great performances that day, they went widely unnoticed. The games were not televised because CBS was devoting its airwaves fulltime to coverage of the assassination, and sports writers of the day were as much in mourning as everyone else. “Big men were playing a boy’s sport at the wrong time,” sports columnist Arthur Daley wrote in The New York Times. Some players — particularly those on the Los Angeles Rams — had no desire to play. They took the field because they had to, because the commissioner had declared the games would go on. Others almost seemed to welcome the respite from the dreariness of the day. “It was hard to think football before the game,” St. Louis quarterback Charlie Johnson said that day. “Then it passed.”

“I think everybody felt something,” Chicago Bears tight end Mike Ditka said. “Not having known the man, however, I think he would have not wanted it postponed. So we go out on the field — and it’s business to us — and after the first kickoff all you think about is the Steelers.” The fans might have been seeking an escape themselves. Despite worries that stadiums could be half empty, games in New York, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia were all sellouts. And while about 150 tickets were sent back for refunds in Pittsburgh, another 300 were sold the day before the game. At the stadiums, flags were at half-staff and there was a moment of silence before the game. Fans were asked to join in singing the national anthem, and many had transistor radios tuned in to the latest developments in Dallas and Washington. The NFL was hardly the sports behemoth it is today. It had just 14 teams — the Detroit Lions were sold that week for $6 million — and lagged behind baseball and college football in popularity. The league had just weathered a gambling scandal, it faced competition from the upstart yet still decidedly inferior AFL and the first Super Bowl was still four years away. Still, the decision to play was shocking to many, made even more so when the shooting of Oswald was captured on TV just minutes before the East Coast games were scheduled to kick off. So much had happened in the previous 48 hours that it seemed incomprehensible that playing football games would somehow restore some normalcy to a shattered nation. That they played football that Sunday was a blunder Rozelle would come to regret. It was also one the NFL would take pains to avoid after the 9/11 attacks, when the entire season was pushed back a week while workers dug through the rubble of the World Trade Center. Sports can be a healer, but it can’t heal everything. Certainly not a nation traumatized by the killing of a president who always seemed so full of life. On that painful Sunday a half century ago, nothing could.

Newsmakers ‘Catching Fire’ on pace for a box office record

DeGeneres has global ‘goal’ for Oscar gig

LOS ANGELES — The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a scorching hit at the box office. Lionsgate has released early numbers on what’s expected to be one of the biggest November openings ever. Catching Fire has grossed $70.5 million domestically and $64 million internationally, bringing its total to $135 million, the studio reported Saturday. Numbers were from Friday’s opening day but includes some scattered preview shows on Thursday night. The sequel gained $25.3 million from Thursday screenings. Catching Fire is expected to bump two-week champ Thor: The Dark World out of the No. 1 slot. Totals for Catching Fire are expected to reach $150 million domestically over the weekend, though some reports estimated a $170 million opener.

LOS ANGELES — Ellen DeGeneres has high aspirations for her second time around hosting the Oscars. “It reached the world,” the talk show host said of her wellreceived 2007 Oscarcast. Ellen “And I’m DeGeneres trying to get world peace. So, that’s my goal.” DeGeneres may have been exaggerating, but there’s no overstating her enthusiasm for the upcoming March 2 gig. “I know a lot of those people,” she said of the Oscar audience. “They’re on my show a lot. I love the whole business.”

“This is a testament to the power of the books, the way the first film resonated across the world with audiences and Jennifer Lawrence’s continued success and popularity, particularly in this role,” said box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian of Rentrak of the Catching Fire success. “And the movie has gotten great reviews, which means it

will get great word of mouth.” The impressive opening of Catching Fire is expected to mark the eighth-highest domestic opening to date. The Hunger Games, with $67.3 million its opening night in 2012, holds the title of the sixthhighest opening weekend with $152.5 million. The Avengers sits at No. 1 with $207.4 million.

NYC stores trim windows as gifts to city tourists By Samantha Critchell The Associated Press

Weather for November 24


The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Forget window shopping, some of Manhattan’s biggest and most storied retailers say their elaborate seasonal window displays are a gift to passers-by. Reimagining every major holiday covered in a slick coating of ice, recreating cozy Christmas-morning scenes and paying homage to a local legend can be a yearlong labor of love. “Every store has their own style,” says David Hoey, senior director of visual presentation at Bergdorf Goodman. “We try to pick a theme that will lend itself for us to go to town. We all do.” At his corner of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, arguably one of the most famous shopping intersections in the world, Hoey isn’t just celebrating Christmas, he’s paying homage to 12 holidays, including Valentine’s Day, Independence Day and Halloween. One of his favorite windows is the April Fool’s Day display that depicts a lovely outdoor springtime scene — assembled upside down. Kitty-corner from Bergdorf is Tiffany & Co. and its scenes that aim to capture the New York holiday of your best dreams and memories. “We are telling a story of the lives that go on here and the interactions that happen on Christmas Day and on that morning in New York City,” says Richard Moore, vice president of creative visual merchandising. He does add a little product to the scenes — it is a store, after all — but the holiday windows aren’t as much about pushing sales. “It’s about holiday spirit and celebrated tradition. The windows are for all ages, all different cultures. We just want you to stop and look and engage in our windows.” Hoey eagerly visits the windows of the other big stores. It’s a treat and a tradition, he says. “Window dressers and the people who do window displays is a very small community. We look at everyone’s windows. We are just as excited to see the other windows as everyone else is.” Moore soaks up the season, too. “There’s no better time to think about [the] next holiday than this holiday.” Here’s what window watchers can see now through the end of December, all located in midtown: Barneys New York: Barneys’ holiday collaboration with Jay Z, whose full name is Shawn Corey Carter, certainly has created the most headlines, but not for the windows or the BNY SCC collection items they feature. The focus has been on

the partnership in the midst of customers’ accusations of racial profiling while they were buying expensive items. The windows, though, are trained on high tech with interactive installations that feature light shows and a virtual sleigh ride with Santa and Mrs. Claus, fresh off Madison Avenue makeovers. Bergdorf Goodman: The “Holidays on Ice” theme exists in a “sort-of time warp,” Hoey says. There are details from the 17th through 21st centuries — and all coated with a little glimmer and shimmer. Bloomingdale’s: A trip around the block seems a trip around the world, with oversized packages celebrating shopping around the world, including France, Italy and China — and New York. Henri Bendel: A celebration of the work of the late illustrator Al Hirschfeld, the windows peek into an imaginary dinner party — at a tony town house, of course — filled with the celebrities who so often were his subjects. The guest list includes Sarah Jessica Parker, Liza Minnelli, Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. Lord & Taylor: There’s also a party going on here. It’s part of the celebration of the traditional trappings of the season: shopping for gifts, taking tea and kissing goodnight. Macy’s: A little boy journeys through an enchanted forest, meeting all sorts of extraordinary characters along the way, and comes away with belief in faith and some magical dreams. Saks Fifth Avenue: Snow falls from the sky in a 3-D light show. Or, could someone — or something — be shaking the snow from the rooftop? Follow the story of Yeti, an underappreciated snowmaker in Siberia. (Saks’ display won’t be unveiled until Monday.) Tiffany & Co.: A miniature sleigh filled with boxes in Tiffany Blue visits an enchanting neighborhood on a snowy night.

The smaller, still luxurious Las Melodias By Roger and Melissa Carson For The New Mexican



These columns appear regularly in Home, inside The New Mexican every first Sunday of the month and at www.santafenew

t was on a cold winter morning that luxury developer Lyle Anderson was out walking with Zannie Garcia on her Santa Fe Ranch just north of town. Stopping for a moment to take in the beauty of the land, they heard the sound of bells off in the distance. Asked where the sound came from, she answered that they were the bells of the St. Francis Cathedral and only during the cold stillness of winter could you hear them at her ranch some 15 miles away. Anderson was so moved by the experience that he decided to purchase a 5,000-acre parcel of her ranch and call this new development Las Campanas, The Bells.

Nove mbe

r 2013

Fast-forward some 20 years, and Las Campanas is a mature luxury community that has weathered its ups and downs

and is poised for the future. For most people, the very words Las Campanas bring to mind million-dollar homes and resort-style living. What many people don’t realize is that Las Campanas offers a variety of lifestyles and not all the homes are of the large, million-dollar variety. Enter Michael Sivage, a second-generation homebuilder and developer most recognized for his family business, SivageThomas. The family business was a tremendous success, building and selling more than a billion dollars worth of homes in the Southwest. Astute to the economic changes in the wind, he sold the company to Pulte homes in 2003, and Michael Sivage looked to San Antonio, Texas, where his new company,

Michael Sivage Homes and Communities, grew to be one of the largest in that market. He returned to his beloved New Mexico to set up a base of operations in Albuquerque. Adrian Calderon, president of Sivage Luxury Homes, was tasked with creating housing for the Santa Fe market, specifically the Los Santeros neighborhood of Las Campanas. Anderson originally platted the Los Santeros neighborhood to include smaller lot sizes for homes that were 2,500 square feet or less. Calderon laid out the master plan for what is now Las Melodias de Las Campanas. That’s “the melodies of the bells, and Calderon crafted musically inspired street names such as Camino de Colores and Avenida Malaguena and homes with names like Baritono, Con-

tralto and even Soprano. Las Melodias sits on the premium north tip of Los Santeros and offers luxury homes with golf course and mountain views. Michael Sivage presents a variety of single-level or twostory homes with prices ranging from $400,000 to $700,000. Improved building codes over the last few years means that new homes are far more efficient and better constructed than they were even five years ago. Second-home and vacation-home buyers are looking for newer and smaller homes than a decade ago, so it appears that Mr. Sivage is right on track, again. You don’t need to play golf to live in Las Melodias; the quality of life is not dependant on being a club member. If you want the resort amenities, Las

Campanas club memberships are available and so far about half of the homeowners in Las Melodias have joined. With or without a membership, the natural setting, the security and the quality of the homes make this an exciting community to live in. For those who must live right on the golf course, there are still some golf course lots available, so now is the time to ring your own bells and enjoy this luxurious lifestyle.

ne of winter’s pleasures is a wood-burning fire. The divine aroma of piñon emanating from chimneys immediately brings memories. In cooler climates, fireplaces were historically the heart of a home, providing needed heat and often utilized for cooking. In Santa Fe, they usually play both a functional and decorative role.

as subtle as a narrow plastered ledge that does not impede its curved lines. However, for more traditional rectilinear fireplaces, a mantle visually breaks up the form and provides a good spot for artwork and objets d’art. Mantle materials range from chunky reclaimed wood to a flagstone-covered ledge atop a plastered surface, steel, or a large piece of limestone or rough-hewn granite. The chimney, or the vertical portion extending from the mantle to the ceiling, becomes a blank canvas for a painting, sculptural piece or grouping of accessories. We are partial to threedimensional objects that provide wonderful shadow play when properly lighted, and a less serious alternative to a piece of art centered within the space. A small, lighted, recessed nicho with the perfect object placed inside can be a powerful statement. Adding texture or a contrast color to the fireplace body (or surface) immediately strength-

ens it as a focal point, defines its shape and adds visual interest. Favorite finishes include American Clay plaster in a variety of textures and colors; Bioshield clay paint with its subtle texture and green properties; Venetian plaster to create a waxed, shimmering work of art; stone veneer for strength and texture; or tile surrounding the opening or cladding the entire structure. It is important, and sometimes required by building code, to have a properly fitted and designed screen to protect people or furnishings from flying embers, which also creates an opportunity for “artwork.” Screens can be adorned with symbols, organic forms or decorative textures by our many venerable blacksmiths, adding the hand-forged quality we love. Larger openings require mounted frames with operable doors with glass or screen material, while smaller fireplaces might be better suited to freestanding screens for a maximum

view of the fire. If created to work with the overall design, fireplace tools can become integral to the design, mounted to the side or above the opening. Consider what tools you really use, as often only a poker and tongs are necessary. Wood storage is perpetually another fireplace question, often incorporated as a rectangular opening in the wall or, more traditionally, under the hearth. Otherwise, a large lined basket or a wooden, copper or steel vessel is a good solution. The fireplace serves many needs in the home, so embrace the call to give it the attention it deserves with the right design elements.

Both are New Mexico-licensed interior designers. They can be reached at 983-3601 or info@hvlinteriors. com.


During initial space or furniture planning, fireplaces are identified as a room’s focal point because people gravitate toward them for heat and ambiance, and they visually stand proud, demanding our attention. Fireplaces come in a variety of forms to suit every home’s style. In our region, we see everything from clean, rectilinear shapes to curvilinear, historic kivas often in adobe homes. As a focal point of the space, how do you make this form shine while incorporating it into the rest of the home’s design? The main elements of a fireplace (from bottom up) to examine are hearth, opening, mantle and chimney. Each of these parts needs to be considered, whether in new construction or a remodel, for how they relate to each other and contribute to the greater whole. Hearths are the floors of fireplaces and can literally be on the floor or raised, sometimes extending out to a banco (bench) for seating. Bancos welcome people to casually perch and receive warmth, and aesthetically they provide visual weight to a larger fireplace as well as a raised area to display an art piece. Often capped with stone, hearths may be simply plastered or covered in tile or concrete slab. Openings may be softer, frameless with plaster edges and perhaps hand-painted, while some spaces call for structure with a surround in steel, tile or stone. Moving up the fireplace, the mantle takes on a variety of forms. For smaller kivas, seen in bedroom or kitchen corners, they are often 505.988.8088
