Report faults agencies for costs

A large storm that blanketed Santa Fe and much of New Mexico with snow now threatens to wreak havoc on holiday travelers as it moves east. The storm, already blamed for at least eight deaths in the West, slogged through Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and other parts of the Southwest on Sunday, leading to hundreds of flight cancellations ahead of Thanksgiving.

In Santa Fe, residents were greeted Sunday by a blast of overnight snowfall. National Weather Service meteorologist Jennifer Palucki said the Santa Fe area received between 5 inches and 9 inches of snow by Sunday morning. The Santa Fe area was to remain under a winter storm warning until Monday morning, and Santa Fe Public Schools issued a two-hour delay for Monday.

Record participation: SFPS program for homeless youth helping more than ever

Efforts to make plans affordable for public employees questioned By Steve Terrell

The New Mexican

New Mexico agencies responsible for health insurance for public employees have done a poor job of controlling health care costs for public employees, a report for the Legislative Finance Committee says. Instead of focusing on cost-saving measures, the report said, the agencies “have shifted costs onto employees and employers through higher premiums,” which is “unsustainable in the long run.” Also, the report said that “lack of effective oversight of provider rates and quality improvement has made employee health care less affordable.” Both the state Risk Management Division and the New Mexico Public School Insurance Authority have implemented or plan to implement premium increases between 19 percent and 25 percent, the report noted. But A.J. Forte, director of the state’s Risk Management Division — one of the major agencies involved with providing health care benefits for public employees in the state, said Friday that while he agrees with much of the report, he disagrees that his agency

Isabel Ribe, program development specialist for Adelante, handles a bag of food for students in need Wednesday.

Adelante caters to increasing need By Robert Nott

The New Mexican


t’s been a tough year for “Rebecca.” Her mother, who often watched over Rebecca’s elementary school-aged son, died. Rebecca, a single mom, has been looking for work for a while. And on a recent rainy Wednesday afternoon, she was expressing thanks for Adelante. “This is the first time I’ve ever had to ask for help,” she said as she gathered up a paper bag of groceries from the Adelante compound in the BF Young Building on Camino Sierra Vista. Adelante is the program within Santa Fe Public Schools that supports homeless students and their families. By its own estimate, it is assisting more

than 1,300 individuals this year — a record number. The reasons are numerous: the economy, job loss, deportation of parents, substance abuse and kids running away from home. “The city has no money, we have no money, nobody has money, so everybody is falling,” said Allegra Love, an attorney who serves as the middle school liaison for Adelante. About 1,000 of Adelante’s child clients are K-12 students; 34 are in college or pursuing their General Educational Development certificate. More than 200 are siblings of SFPS students, who also fall under the protective umbrella of Adelante. Another 70 or so are of pre-K age. In terms of defining homelessness, Adelante goes by the guidelines set by the federal McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act,

which provides funding to help districts give educational and environmental support to homeless youth. Children sharing housing due to the loss of their own home qualify, as do students living in motels, campgrounds, emergency shelters, cars or other vehicles, parks, public spaces or abandoned buildings. Adelante’s 1,300 clients include about 150 students who are living with their grandparents because their parents are out of the picture for one reason or another. In terms of students who may actually be living on the streets in Santa Fe, the number is 47, according to Loretta Fernandez, homeless liaison for Adelante. Gaile Herling, coordinator of Adelante, knows of a woman in her 70s who is now the main provider

Judge rejects move to block teacher-evaluation system By Robert Nott

The New Mexican

An Albuquerque district court judge rejected a petition to stop the Public Education Department’s continued implementation of a new teacher-evaluation system. In issuing a written decision late Friday afternoon, Judge C. Shannon Baca wrote that existing legislation does give the department the authority to create and impose an evaluation plan by executive force, noting

In brief

Afghan leader won’t sign deal with U.S. immediately

KABUL, Afghanistan — President Hamid Karzai cast fresh doubt on the future presence of thousands of American and allied forces on Sunday by rejecting a recommendation by an Afghan assembly of dignitaries to quickly sign a long-delayed security pact with the United States. Although the mercurial leader did not fully spell out his reasons for deferring its signature until after the April 5 elections, the move was a slap in the face to U.S. officials who had repeatedly asked for a deal by the end of the year. The U.S. administration has insisted the deal be finalized by the end of next month, warning that planning for a post-2014 military presence may be jeopardized if it is not approved.

Vatican publicly unveils disputed bone fragments VATICAN CITY — The Vatican publicly unveiled a handful of bone fragments purportedly belonging to St. Peter on Sunday, reviving the scientific debate and tantalizing mystery over whether the relics found in a shoe box truly belong to the first pope. The nine pieces of bone sat nestled like rings in a jewel box inside a bronze display case on the side of the altar during a Mass commemorating the end of the Vatican’s yearlong celebration of the Christian faith. It was the first time they had ever been exhibited in public.

EU climate chief says U.N. talks hinge on 2015 deal After another U.N. climate conference gave only modest results, European Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard says the process needs to provide a “substantial answer” to global warming in two years to remain relevant. Hedegaard told The Associated Press on Sunday that even if the process succeeds in producing a major climate pact in 2015, it’s worth reconsidering whether the international confabs need to be held every year, and whether the scope of each session should be narrower.

New law in Egypt requires notice for small gatherings CAIRO — Egypt’s interim president on Sunday banned public gatherings of more than 10 people without prior government approval, imposing hefty fines and prison terms for violators in a bid to stifle the near-constant protests roiling the country. The new law is more restrictive than regulations used under the rule of autocrat Hosni Mubarak, overthrown in Egypt’s 2011 uprising that marked the start of unrest in the country. Rights groups and activists immediately denounced it, saying it aims to stifle opposition, allow repressive police practices and keep security officials largely unaccountable for possible abuses. The military-backed government first floated the law in October. Interim President Adly Mansour approved a slightly amended version Sunday, which removed a proposed ban on sit-ins and a draft portion criminalizing “insulting the state.” The Associated Press

HARTFORD, Conn. — A prosecutor is planning to release a report Monday on the investigation into the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, but the public will have to wait longer for the state police’s full accounting of the crime. The decision to continue withholding the bulk of the evidence is stirring new criticism of the secrecy that has surrounded the probe since a gunman killed 20 children and six educators inside the school on Dec. 14. While the gunman took his own life and authorities are not contemplating any prosecutions, the lead investigator, State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky III, has gone to court to fight the release of 911 tapes, consulted privately with victims’ families on what might be included in the report and resisted calls from Connecticut’s governor to divulge more information.

The AP was tipped to the first U.S.-Iranian meeting in March shortly after it occurred, but the White House and State Department disputed elements of the account, and the AP could not confirm the meeting. The AP learned of further indications of secret diplomacy in the fall and pressed the White House and other officials further. As the Geneva talks appeared to be reaching their conclusion, senior administration officials confirmed to the AP the details of the extensive outreach. They

spoke only on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss by name the secret talks. The Geneva deal provides Iran with about $7 billion in relief from international sanctions in exchange for Iranian curbs on uranium enrichment and other nuclear activity. All parties pledged to work toward a final accord next year that would remove remaining suspicions in the West that Tehran is trying to assemble an atomic weapons arsenal.

Challenges ahead after agreement By Joby Warrick

The Washington Post

GENEVA — The euphoria over the signing of a historic nuclear agreement with Iran gave way to sober reality Sunday as the parties clashed over a key element of the deal and congressional skeptics threatened to thwart it. The Obama administration moved quickly to sell the agreement to nervous U.S. allies, particularly Israel, and to persuade lawmakers not to push ahead with new economic sanctions that could prompt Iran to abandon the six-month freeze on its nuclear program set under the accord. In interviews, Secretary of State John Kerry defended the deal, saying that the United States and its allies believe that the agreement ensures Iran will either abide by the terms or face the reinstatement of measures that have crippled the country’s economy. “We have no illusions. We don’t do this on the basis of somebody’s statements to you. We do it on the basis of actions that can be verified,” he told CNN. Kerry also acknowledged that keeping the deal on track could

prove to be more arduous than securing the landmark agreement had been. “The next phase, let me be clear, will be even more difficult, and we need to be honest about it,” he told reporters after the pact’s first phase was approved by diplomats from Iran and six major world powers. “But it will also be even more consequential.” The deal, sealed in a pre-dawn signing ceremony Sunday in Geneva, freezes or reverses progress at all of Iran’s key nuclear facilities, barring it from adding new centrifuges, and capping, or

in some cases eliminating, stockpiles of uranium that Western officials fear could be turned into fuel for a nuclear weapon. Iran also agreed to unprecedented, daily monitoring by international inspectors and committed not to finish construction of a controversial heavy-water reactor that could provide the country with a source of plutonium for a nuclear bomb if the government decided to pursue one. Iran has long insisted that its nuclear program is intended for peaceful, energy-producing purposes. In Tehran, officials welcomed


the deal as the beginning of a new era for the Islamic republic, with President Hassan Rouhani asserting that language in the agreement affirmed Iran’s right to enrich uranium, which he and other top Iranian officials had demanded as an element of any agreement.

“Family Owned & Operated Since 1965”

Iran insists its nuclear interest is only in peaceful energy production and medical research. The U.S. and Israel have regularly threatened military action if they believe Iran is about to develop a nuclear weapon. While the agreement early Sunday — late Saturday in Washington — was concluded to great fanfare and global attention, with Secretary of State John Kerry joining fellow foreign ministers in signing the deal and Obama then presenting it to the nation in a televised White House address, the path there couldn’t have been more secret. With low expectations, midlevel American officials began in 2011 meeting their Iranian counterparts in Muscat, one of the Arab world’s most tranquil if overlooked metropolises. The process was guided by Sultan Qaboos, Oman’s diminutive but wily monarch, who has cultivated decades of good relations with the United States and his region’s two rivals: Sunni-controlled Saudi Arabia and Shiadominated Iran. Qaboos had endeared himself to the Obama administration after three American hikers were arrested in 2009 for straying across Iraq’s border. As a mediator he was able to secure

their freedom over the next two years, prompting U.S. officials to wonder whether the diplomatic opportunity was worth further exploring. Expectations were kept low for the initial U.S.-Iranian discussions. The officials skirted the big issues and focused primarily on the logistics for setting up higher-level talks. For the U.S., the big question was whether Iran’s leaders would be willing to secretly negotiate matters of substance with a country they call the “Great Satan.” The private talks were also a gamble for the United States, which cut off diplomatic ties with Iran in 1979 after the Islamic Revolution and the taking of 52 American hostages held for 444 days after rebels stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. To this day, the State Department considers Iran the biggest state supporter of terrorism in the world. When Obama decided to send Burns and Sullivan to Oman, Iran was still being governed by the hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, whose inflammatory rhetoric severely worsened the Islamic republic’s relations with the West.

Michael Martinez with the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office said Sunday afternoon that deputies had responded to seven crashes since Saturday, three of which were on Interstate 25. Martinez said there were no injuries. The storm brought good news for Ski Santa Fe, which reported an additional 7 inches of snow within a 24-hour period. The ski area’s website reported a 25-inch base late Sunday. Ski Santa Fe officials plan to announce Monday if the area will open by Thanksgiving. Taos Ski Valley received 5 inches of snow in the same 24-hour window and plans to open by Thanksgiving. Elsewhere in New Mexico, near whiteout conditions were reported along stretches of Interstate 40 west of Albuquerque. Along the New Mexico-Texas border, in the El Paso area, a mix of snow, sleet and ice forced road closures and created messy driving conditions. In Arizona, the city of Flagstaff had received 11 inches of snow by early Sunday, and it was expected to get another inch by the end of the day before the

storm petered out. Metro Phoenix and other parts of central Arizona received between 1½ to 2½ inches of rain over the course of the storm. By early Sunday, the weather was blamed for at least eight deaths in several fatal traffic accidents, including a 4-yearold girl who was killed in a rollover accident in Eastern New Mexico. After the storm plows through the Southwest, meteorologists expect the Arctic mass to head south and east,

threatening plans for Tuesday and Wednesday as people hit the roads and airports for some of the busiest travel days of the year. More than 300 flights were canceled at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, representing about one-third of the scheduled departures. “It’s certainly going to be a travel impact as we see the first few people making their way for Thanksgiving,” National Weather Service meteorologist Tom Bradshaw said.

System: Educators vow to keep fighting Continued from Page A-1 teacher accountability via a controversial new plan to base teachers’ evaluations on the results of three years of student test scores (50 percent), classroom observations by trained administrators and teacher attendance records, among other measures. Some school districts, including Santa Fe Public Schools, have received permission to build their own teacher-evaluation plan, though it mostly follows the state rule. Under that plan, teachers can now fall into five categories: exemplary, highly effective, effective, minimally effective or ineffective. Though some lawmakers favoring the Public Education Department’s plan attempted to push through legislation backing it, the Legislature never passed any such law. Martinez issued an execu-

tive order to mandate the new system, which began in August. It impacts about 22,000 teachers statewide. Ellen Bernstein, head of the Albuquerque Teachers Federation, which represents about 7,000 educators, is one of the plaintiffs in the case. She said by phone Sunday, “Obviously educators statewide are going to be incredibly disappointed. It seems like the judge focused solely on the authority of the PED to make rules and not whether the rules conflicted with the law, which is what our contention is. We are going to keep fighting. This is an ill-conceived, poorly implemented, punishing system that does not truly evaluation a teacher’s ability to teach.” Stephanie Ly, president of the American Federation of Teachers-New Mexico, said the organization has not yet made a

decision to appeal the judge’s verdict, but it will meet soon to discuss that option. “It’s important to know that this judgment doesn’t say the evaluation system is flawed, but we believe it is flawed, and we owe it to taxpayers, students, educators and communities, to continue fighting for what is best,” she said Sunday. Via email, Skandera said, “Punitive and frivolous lawsuits aimed at stopping reform only tie up resources we would rather use to help our students … delay is a favorite tactic of the status quo and our students don’t have the luxury of waiting. If those looking to derail critical reforms would refocus their energy on our students in the classroom, we know we could achieve success much sooner.” Contact Robert Nott at 986-3021 or

has done a poor job at keeping health care costs down. “We have worked with Blue Cross/Blue Shield and Presbyterian,” Forte said. “We rely on the providers to build the network.” A program evaluation team of the Legislative Finance Committee looked at the entities that make up the Interagency Benefits Advisory Committee, which was created by the Health Care Purchasing Act. These are Risk Management, which provides insurance for most state employees; the Public School Insurance Authority; the New Mexico Retiree Health Care Authority and Albuquerque Public Schools. Combined, these agencies provide benefits for more than 150,000 current employees and retirees. The agencies run self-funded plans, which means the state assumes the risk for providing health coverage. “There are various benefits to being a self-funded health plan such as complete freedom in plan design and provider contracting, better cash flow management, and not being subject to state premium taxes,” the LFC report said. However, the agencies “have not maximized the flexibility of being self-funded to effectively manage costs.” The report contains several recommendations, including creating a consolidated health care finance entity to administer health benefits on behalf of the state and local governments, school districts and institutions of higher education.

A 2010 study of Risk Management and The Public School Insurance Authority showed redundant administrative functions. Combining the agencies would also increase their pool, spread risk more effectively and allow them to better negotiate provider rates. The report also recommends consolidating purchasing, quality improvement, and fraud and abuse surveillance activities with other state-funded health programs, including Medicaid. This new health benefits authority should be charged with looking at the feasibility of a data warehouse and claims processing function using the existing systems in Medicaid, the report said. These changes would have to be passed by the state Legislature and signed by the governor to take effect. Forte said he would be happy to work with legislators on the idea of consolidating insurance efforts, as long as such a consolidation would bring lower costs for state employees’ health insurance. The report noted that the new federal Affordable Care Act includes a mandate on affordability and adequacy, which has maximums on employer and employee health care costs. The report cautioned the benefits agencies to remain aware of such requirements, which might require changes to premiums and outof-pocket costs such as deductibles, copays and coinsurance.

Adelante: Program welcomes donations Continued from Page A-1 for a 4-month-old granddaughter. In cases like this, Adelante can offer support services, including groceries, gas cards and emergency cash to help pay for rent or utility bills. According to Love, some of the homeless students’ parents have been deported back to their native country, which can leave a psychological scar on children who can remain behind in the public school system. “They are asked to sit there in class, pay attention, graduate and think about their future when, in fact, many of them just do not have a future in America.” Some of the situations that send children to Adelante for help are traumatic for the youngsters, as when a single parent ends up in jail or a father abuses, or even kills, his spouse. “You look at these kids’ grades and attendance levels, and of course they are completely on the floor — F’s,” said Isabel Ribe, program development specialist for Adelante. Adelante has a food and clothing pantry. It has recently formed a women’s cooperative, where mothers come together to learn English and make food, clothes and crafts. Adelante is organizing a craft fair at El Museo Cultural on Dec. 19. It also refers clients to a number of resources in town where they can find legal and immigration counseling or low-income housing. Adelante collects and organizes about 80 to 90 bags of

food every week, distributing about 60 every Wednesday afternoon at its office and another 20 to 30 Wednesday evening at Sweeney Elementary School through its Juntos Program, which provides hot meals, workshops, coats, toys and supplies for needy families. The organization counts on The Food Depot for fresh food, including vegetables and fruits — 1,700 pounds worth last week, according to Fernandez (yes, they weighed it). Donations from local charitable organizations and private citizens provide bread, boxed and canned goods, sweets and even paper goods. Adelante, which began in 2003, has a long-range plan to relocate to a larger space on the south side of town, near the Zona Del Sol center, where, among other goals, it hopes to set up a health clinic and offer after-school activities for youth and their families. In the interim, the organization can always use donations of food, clothing and money. Ribe said no donation is too small: “Everyone talks about getting a million dollars, but the beef of what comes to us is smaller — $1, $5, $10 donations. It adds up.” The department’s annual budget is about $330,000. Donations can be dropped off at the Adelante offices in the BF Young Building, 1300 Camino Sierra Vista. Call Herling at 4901970 or visit www.adelantesanta for more information. Contact Robert Nott at 986-3021 or

Home sales in Santa Fe rise 23 percent By Bruce Krasnow The New Mexican


he Santa Fe Association of Realtors will announce the details at its media breakfast Jan. 16, but the news is now official: 2012 was the best year for residential home sales since 2007. Alan Ball, an agent with Keller Williams Santa Fe who keeps monthly sales data, reports residential sales hit 1,641 last year — up 23 percent from 2011. But as we’ve reported here all year, that does not mean all is well with the sellers. Due to distressed short sales and foreclosures, the average sales prices dropped 6 percent in 2012 to $421,577. But the year ended with a bang as December saw 150 sales — and the fourth quarter itself saw three strong months in a row, and that despite the fiscal uncertainties coming from Washington, D.C. uuu

His business is hopping

Knowledge about beer-making given and received at Santa Fe Homebrew Supply

By Chris Quintana The New Mexican


ami Nordby doesn’t sell beer — he just sells all the materials a person needs to make it at Santa Fe Homebrew Supply. Nordby stocks wine-making, beercrafting and cheese-curdling materials, though the majority of his business comes from brewers. To that end, he stocks supplies for extract brewing, which he said can be easier but costs more on the ingredients end, and for all-grain-brewing, a more time-intensive process. He said that in the past, beermakers made up 85 percent of his total sales, though he said the recent crop of fruit in the state has sent more winemakers his way. And while he doesn’t have a product he’d call his best-seller, he said he does sell a lot of brewing starter kits and recipe packs that include every ingredient needed for a single batch. To that end, he can also help brewers come up with new recipes or order speciality items. “There are so many directions people can go,” Nordby said at his shop on Thursday. “Imagination is the only limit.” Nordby’s shop is split roughly into two sections: equipment in the storefront and ingredients in the back. In the front, giant glass containers rest on shelves alongside powdered chemicals. Smaller items such as spigots, beer caps and yeast line the smaller shelves. It’s the back of the shop that feels

more like a brewery. Three-foot-tall plastic containers house both local and international grain for all-grain brewing, and a couple of freezers hold several varieties of green and earthy-smelling hops, another common ingredient in beer making. Nordby can tell which grain will create a chocolate porter or which hops will make a beer more bitter with an ease that comes from years of familiarity with his craft. But it wasn’t always that way for him. The shop was a gamble, Nordby said, especially given that he didn’t have a lot of brewing experience when he began the venture. Nordby said that he had a passion for the craft, but he did it on a small level

— he used to brew in his apartment. But about five years ago, he said, he noticed Santa Fe didn’t have a local brew supply store, so he and a couple of friends financed the store. “We just didn’t know any better,” he said. Part of his success came from an advertising campaign that consumed about 25 percent of his initial budget. From there, people started talking about the shop, which he said kept him in business. His wife also had another child during that five-year period, so he hired some part-time help to keep the doors open during times when he was away. But because the store earnings went to employees, Nordby said, his

inventory declined. He is back at work full time now, and Nordby said he’s working on replenishing his once-expansive stock. In the five years since he started, Nordby said that he’s learned a lot from customers who were experienced brewers, and now he can offer that accumulated knowledge to newbies. John Rowley said he is one of the customers who has benefited from Nordby’s knowledge. “He was a great resource for sure,” Rowley said. “He knows a lot, and he wants to help.” Rowely also is president of the Sangre de Cristo Craft Brewers, a group that Rowley said frequents Homebrew. And though it’s located on the south side of town, Santa Fe Homebrew Supply is still the closet supply store for small brewers in Santa Fe, Rowley said. Before Nordby set up shop in 2007, Santa Fe brewers drove to Albuquerque or farther for supplies. Rowley said that while stores in Albuquerque might have more esoteric supplies, he prefers to avoid the trip and support local business. Rowley also said he recommends Nordby’s store to new brewers. “We got a great thing going here; it’s a really supportive shop,” Rowley said. “I wouldn’t go to Albuquerque unless you absolutely have to. It’s almost too much, and it can be intimidating for a new brewer.” Contact Chris Quintana at

The restoration project at La Fonda is well under way, and one of the challenges for Jennifer Kimball and her managers is to phase the project so it doesn’t impact visitors. To accomplish that, contractors try to start work at 9 a.m. on the first 100 rooms now under construction. As those rooms come back on line in April or May, the renovation moves to the next 80 rooms with the goal of having all the rooms completely modernized and ungraded by Indian Market weekend. Kimball is also proud that all of the 220 workers will remain employed during the nine-month project and that vacancy rates have not been impacted. Because of the lower supply of rooms, occupancy is close to 100 percent — of course, the $89 a night special La Fonda is offering during the remodeling doesn’t hurt with bargainconscious travelers. Majority ownership in La Fonda still rests with the four daughters of the late Sam and Ethel Ballen — Lois, Penina, Lenore and Marta Ballen. uuu

The National Association of the Remodeling industry’s fourth-quarter Remodeling Business Pulse data of current and future remodeling business conditions has experienced significant growth across all indicators, with forecasting in the next three months hitting its all-time highest level. The significantly positive results have a lot to do with homeowner security, remodelers say. “Remodelers are indicating major growth in the future, with many saying that clients are feeling more stable in their financial future and their employment situations; therefore, they are spending more freely on remodeling needs,” says Tom O’Grady, association chairman and a builder in Drexel Hill, Pa. Growth indicators in the last quarter of 2012 are as follows: u Current business conditions up 2.1 percent since last quarter u Number of inquiries up 3.9 percent since last quarter u Requests for bids up 3.7 percent since last quarter u Conversion of bids to jobs up 3.5 percent since last quarter u Value of jobs sold is up 4.3 percent since last quarter Still, according to the data, expectations for 2013 are even brighter. Two-thirds of remodelers forecasted the next three months positively, and the rating jumped 13.1 percent from last quarter. Drivers of this positive outlook continue to be postponement of projects (81 percent reporting) and the improvement of home prices (51 percent reporting). “Now that the election is over, consumer confidence is starting to grow and so has remodelers’ confidence,” O’Grady says. “NARI members are looking forward to having a well-deserved, productive year

ferias estatales de la Costa Este, Varble regresó a Ohio, pero no pasó mucho tiempo antes de que la llamaran para una audición con otro grupo de danza en Nueva York. Como resultado, fue de las primeras integrantes del grupo sin fines de lucro United Service Organizations Inc., organización que se dedicaba a llevar servicios, programas y entretenimiento a las bases militares durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. La audición para las Rockettes llegó al poco tiempo. “De manera inesperada, el teatro perdió a una de sus chicas de la orilla y necesitaban a alguien de inmediato,” comenta Varble. Dice que Markert era “muy exigente al contratar a las chicas,” no sólo era poder bailar las piezas de tap y levantar la pierna alto y con gracia, el insistía también en “un carácter de altura.” La vida como Rockette de 1942 a 1946 era emocionante pero también agotador, añade. El día comenzaba con ensayos a las 6 a.m. seguido de cuatro presentaciones – cinco durante Navidad y Pascua. Además, las Rockettes estaban seguido en eventos de caridad en el Madison Square Garden y otros lugares en la ciudad. Las Rockettes de esa época trabajaban siete días a la semana por tres semanas, seguidas de una semana de

descanso. “En aquella época, pasaban una película y luego nuestro espectáculo, que generalmente duraba una hora,” dice Varble. Vivía en el ahora legendario Rehearsal Club en la calle 53rd Street, a sólo unas cuantas cuadras del teatro Radio City Music Hall. Ese era un lugar temporal para actrices y bailarinas, cantantes y otros artistas aspirantes a lograr una carrera en la Gran Manzana. “Era como un dormitorio para chicas,” añade Varble, con reglas estrictas y “nada de escapaditas.” Ella comenta que a pesar de las largas jornadas, la parte más dura de ser una Rockette eran “las reprimendas si nos salíamos de la línea o cometíamos un error,” pero eso y el horario de trabajo abrumador eran opacados por “la emoción de bailar en el escenario.” “Era una organización maravillosa que realmente se preocupaba por nosotras.” Si deseas compartir a un personaje de la comunidad con una vida fascinante, escríbenos a neighbors@sfnewmexican. com.

You know,” Canutito continued, “You haven’t been very much like yourself por mucho tiempo. In fact, you didn’t even eat turkey para el Día de Thanksgiving.’ How come, grampo?” “I’ve always hated a los gansos ever since I was little. Mis padres sent me to elementary school cuando no yo todavía hablaba English. I would just sit en la clase and get bored y una vez cuando the teacher no estaba looking, I took off right out the door. I went hacia una casa where a lady kept a un turkey in a little casita in the back yard. Yo hize chase al ganso right out of the casita, and I crawled inside thinking que maybe if I lived in it, I won’t have to go pa’la escuela no more. Pues, I was so jealous de ese turkey que I got mal pica for it and ever since then I don’t like gansos.” “Pero grampo,” Canutito said to him, “Ahora it is the season of el Adviento. Eso quiere decir que Christmas is right around the corner. And as the Christmas carol dice, ‘You’d better watchear, you’d better not llorar, you’d better not poutear; I’m telling you por qué: Santa Clós viene a jugar.’ Does everyone celebrar el Christmas season, grampo?” “No todos, m’hijo,” grampo replied. Do you remember aquella vez que your grama estaba mad at the neighbor lady and called her ‘de mala fe?’ ” “Sí,” said the little boy, “pero I didn’t know who los de ‘bad faith’ were.” “Los de mala fe” were considered to be people who practiced una religión that was different de la religion de nosotros,” grampo said. “They were los Crypto-Jews de New Mexico.” “What are ‘Crypto-Jews’, grampo?” Canutito asked him. “They were Jews secretos who came a Nuevo México four centuries pasãos,” grampo said. Ellos estaban hiding de la Spanish Inquisition que los quería matar. They hid in Pecos por muchos años. A veces people would offer people que hacían suspect que eran Crypto-Jews, holiday foods como posole. Naturalmente if they turned down el posole, — which had carne de marrano in it — eso era un good clue de que they were Crypto-Judíos,” grampo concluded. “Pero, didn’t the people aquí realize de que Jesus himself también era Jewish and that he spoken another language?” Canutito asked. “Even his mother, Mary, era Judía, wasn’t she?” “Pues you and I know that,” Grampo Caralampio said, “pero in those days, la gente didn’t know any better.” Just at that moment, Grama Cuca came into el cuarto. Canutito asked her, “Grama, es verdad de que Jesús era Judío y que he spoke un otro language?” “No, of course not!” Grama Cuca snapped back quickly. “Jesús era Spanish y Católico, and I know que es verdad porque he understands me cuando I pray to him en Español.” “I told you que grama era mi dolor de cabeza,” Grampo Caralampio whispered. Canutito just lowered su cabeza thinking, “Va a ser una loooong Christmas season …”

To spin or not to spin: Does Microsoft need Xbox? By Ryan Nakashima

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates donned a cool leather jacket when he first introduced the Xbox onstage in 2000. More than a decade later, the video-game console is still the hippest brand in Microsoft’s portfolio. But as the company began selling its first new Xbox in eight years on Friday, some critics say Microsoft should spin the gaming unit off. They argue that Xbox distracts management from the company’s fast-growing cloud computing business and its effort to catch up to rivals in tablet and smartphone sales. Here are Xbox’s pros and cons:

Inmates learn tech sector from Silicon Valley pros By Martha Mendoza

The Associated Press

SAN QUENTIN, Calif. he budding entrepreneurs wear blue sweat pants labeled “prisoner” and huge, flapping blue shirts. Their doors are triple locked, and lunch is a stale peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Complicating matters, participants in this growing Silicon Valley startup incubator are barred from the Internet. Nonetheless, the program, launched by successful tech entrepreneurs for inmates north of San Francisco in the decaying San Quentin State Prison, has expanded, and a new session began this month in the gritty, downtown Los Angeles Twin Towers Correctional Facility. The reason they’re growing is simple: Graduates, now trickling out of the penal system, are landing real jobs at real dot-coms. The rigorous, six-month training teaches carefully selected inmates the ins and outs of designing and launching technology firms, using local experts as volunteer instructors. “We believe that when incarcerated people are released into the world, they need the tools to function in today’s high-tech, wired world,” says co-founder Beverly Parenti, who with her husband, Chris Redlitz, has launched thriving companies, including AdAuction, the first online media exchange. The pair were Silicon Valley pioneers in the 1990s, and they tap their many high-level connections to help with the prison program they started after Redlitz was invited into San Quentin in 2011 for a guest lecture and was overwhelmed by the inmates’ desire to learn. “I figured, ‘We work with young entrepreneurs every day. Why not here?’ ” he recalled. After discussions with prison administrators, Parenti and Redlitz decided to add a prison-based firm to their portfolio, naming it for the precarious journey from prison to home: The Last Mile. Now, during twice-a-week evening lessons, students — many locked up before smartphones or Google — practice tweeting, brainstorm new companies and discuss business books assigned as homework. Banned from the Internet to prevent networking with other criminals, they take notes on keyboardlike word processors or with pencil on paper. The program is still “bootstrapping,” as its organizers say, with just 12 graduates in

We believe that when incarcerated people are released into the world, they need the tools to function in today’s high-tech, wired world.” Beverly Parenti its first two years and now a few dozen in classes in San Quentin and Twin Towers. But the five graduates released so far are working in the tech sector. They are guaranteed paid internships if they can finish the rigorous training program, which requires prerequisite courses, proven social skills and a lifetime oath to lead by positive example. In one recent class, while thousands of inmates exercised or played chess in San Quentin’s prison yard, students worked their way through a business model, pitching different technology concepts. “What are the distribution channels?” challenged seminar leader Andrew Kaplan,

a product marketing manager at LinkedIn. “What platforms or networks do we need to think about? Who are we trying to engage?” Tommy Winfrey, 35, who is serving 25 years to life for second-degree murder and hopes to be paroled in 2018, adjusted his eyeglasses and raised a tattooed arm. “I think an important part of our brand is going to be to give our customer a voice,” he said, suggesting they share ideas on social media. On a Silicon Valley-style Demo Day, the startup students present ideas to investors, a demonstration that convinced former California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation director Matthew Cate he made the right decision to approve the training course. “This program will go a long way to not only providing these guys with jobs, but it is my hope that they hire people like them who have changed their lives and are now ready to contribute to society, pay taxes, follow the law, support their families. All those things contribute to the economy,” he told participants after watching the 2012 Demo Day. Inmates also learn the essential startup skills of blogging, in part by answering questions on Quora, a website that allows users and experts to communicate by having volunteers input their entries. Without real businesses to discuss, thousands of readers ask the inmates questions such as: “What does it feel like to murder someone?” “Murdering someone was the ultimate release for me,” blogged David Monroe, 30, who killed a 16-year-old when he was 15. Over the long term, he added, the murder “has forever pitted my heart with regret and covered it in shame.” Writing publically about their crimes, organizers say, helps the inmates move forward once they are released. Just months after serving 24 years for repeat drug offenses and weapons possession, Chrisfino Kenyatta Leal fed his cat and ironed his shirt before hurrying off to catch a Bay Area Rapid Transit train to his office in San Francisco. “I always had an entrepreneurial fire in my belly, I just used it in the wrong way,” said Leal. Like the other entrepreneurs hurrying to meetings, tapping on computers and talking on smartphones at startup RocketSpace, Leal has a passion for technology and the possibilities it holds.

It is profitable in the long term: The Xbox business has been profitable for the past few years, according to Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft’s vice president of strategy. Mehdi says the company sees the gaming industry growing from an annual $66 billion to $78 billion in 2017. And Microsoft hopes to broaden the Xbox’s appeal with features that make it more of an entertainment hub. Its audience is huge: The Xbox Live online gaming and entertainment service has some 48 million members worldwide, many of whom pay $5 a month. More than 80 million Xbox 360s have been sold worldwide, providing a user base for Microsoft to sell things like music subscriptions, video rentals, more games and the new Xbox One. The platform also is a window into Microsoft services such as Bing search, Skype Internet calls and SkyDrive cloud storage. It’s a popular brand: “There are not a lot of products that Microsoft makes that people are pumped and excited about. Xbox is one of them,” says Mike Hickey, a games industry analyst with The Benchmark Co. “To punt that would be a mistake.” It’s a source of innovation: IfMicrosoft hadn’t entered the hardware business, it might not have been able to build the Surface tablet on its own, says Dean Takahashi, author of Opening the Xbox and Xbox 360 Uncloaked. The company has also developed gestureand voice-recognition technology with its Kinect sensor for Xbox. “They developed some very useful skills in moving into this business,” Takahashi says. It positions Microsoft in the living room: Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Sony’s PlayStation 3 each sold more than 80 million units globally. Pulling even with the game console leader was a key strategic win for Microsoft because it prevented Sony from taking over the living room. The strategy was intended “to create a halo effect for other Microsoft consumer devices,” according to Evercore analyst Kirk Materne.

Cons It will be a short-term profit drag: Nomura analyst Rick Sherlund estimates that the Xbox platform will lose at least $1 billion for Microsoft in 2014 and may not be profitable for another year or so after that. He says a spinoff, even to existing shareholders, would immediately boost Microsoft’s profits and stock price. And the timing is right. The company is expected to name a new CEO to replace Steve Ballmer soon and is re-examining its future. “I can understand the emotional attachment people have to Microsoft owning Xbox,” he says. “But if you’re trying to bring in new management here and have a course correction, I think this is one of the places you’ve got to take a look at and reassess.” It’s not as big as Windows: More than a billion people worldwide use Windows personal computers, and focusing efforts on polishing Windows 8.1 could have a bigger payoff. It’s slightly off-brand: Microsoft prides itself on making software and products that help people to be more productive. But Ballmer, at his final shareholders meeting as CEO on Tuesday, acknowledged the common sentiment that video games can suck up huge amounts of time. “I’m sure we’ll lose my 14-year-old for the better part of the next weekend,” he said referring to the Xbox One’s launch. Innovation has been costly: Microsoft took a $1 billion charge in 2007 on Xbox hardware defects and a $900 million charge on unsold Surface inventory this year. And it’s not clear whether the company’s new user-interface technologies are as advanced as they need to be to make money. As several reviewers have noted, Kinect’s voice-recognition ability is hit and miss. The world’s gone mobile: By pouring time and energy into a home-bound console, Microsoft largely missed the mobile devices revolution. IHS predicts Microsoft’s Windows platform will be the operating system in just 6.5 percent of tablets and 3.9 percent of smartphones sold worldwide this year. Together, those devices will account for 1.2 billion units sold. Sherlund says dominating the living room “was a good idea 10 years ago.” “Apple and Google did an end run around you with smartphones and tablets,” he says. “You had your eye on the wrong ball.”

Trouble with little one? ‘Doctor’ is in

FAMILY CDC: Curb antibiotics for kids New guidelines ask doctors to prescribe with caution

tinely prescribed. “But it takes a lot more guts not to prescribe an antibiotic than to go ahead and do it.” The common cold and flu are two other conditions for which pediatric prescriptions have been written, but the drugs could portend more harm than benefit, experts said this week. “Many people have the misconception that since antibiotics are commonly used that they are harmless,” said Dr. Lauri Hicks, a co-author of the new CDC report. As many as 10 million children nationwide risk side effects from antibiotic prescriptions that are not likely to help upper respiratory conditions, according to data in the report. A flurry of scientific papers in recent years has shown a high degree of bacterial resistance to the drug amoxicillin, which has been rendered useless in vast populations of children worldwide because of its overuse. Amoxicillin, an antibiotic in the penicillin family, is commonly prescribed to children. A 2010 study, reported in the journal Pediatrics, found an alarming number of urinary tract infections caused by drug-resistant bacteria among children who had been given antibiotics to treat other illnesses. Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria mutate and evolve strategies, allowing them to outfox the very medications designed to destroy them. Once that happens, even common infections become difficult to treat, experts say. “Our medicine cabinet is nearly empty of antibiotics to treat some infections,” CDC director Dr. Thomas Frieden said in a statement Tuesday. “If doctors prescribe antibiotics carefully and patients take them as prescribed, we can

preserve these lifesaving drugs and avoid entering a post-antibiotic era,” Frieden said. Yet, a report in the British medical journal The Lancet last week declared that the post-antibiotic era is already here. Among the dire predictions: a continuing rise in new species of superbugs, and a possible resumption of death rates for simple infections comparable to those of the early 20th century, before antibiotics existed. Soskel, who treats children as well as adults, said he often reasons with adult patients as to why they probably don’t need an antibiotic. “I will say: ‘I know you are very smart and know the difference between a virus and a bacterium and that antibiotics have no effect on viruses. And when I word things that way, they seem to understand why an antibiotic is not a good idea,” he said.

Doctors are being urged to cautiously prescribe antibiotics for children because the drugs are unnecessary for most upper respiratory illnesses, say government health authorities who released new guidelines on using the medicines. Pressure to curtail antibiotic use for all age groups has mounted in recent years as drug resistance grows and fewer medicines can combat emerging “superbugs.” The new guidelines, released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in cooperation with the American Academy of Pediatrics, call on doctors to prescribe an antibiotic only for laboratory-confirmed bacterial infections. Doctors say the over-prescription of antibiotics has numerous causes: Some physicians prescribe them as a way to hurry patients out of their offices, while others write scripts under pressure from parents. “Taking antibiotics can sometimes do more harm than good, but there are a lot of doctors who think it’s easier to prescribe an antibiotic and pacify Mom than to do the right thing,” said Dr. Neil Soskel, a specialist in family medicine at South Nassau Communities Hospital in Oceanside, N.Y. “Half of all sore throats and earaches are probably viral and not bacterial,” said Soskel, referring to two common childhood afflictions for which antibiotics are rou-


he mother of a 4-year-old boy shared an interesting story with me the other day. At age 2, her son began chewing meat to the point where it became liquid but would not swallow. The parents became worried and began attempting various means of persuading him to swallow. Nothing worked, which increased the parents’ anxiety and, likewise, the energy they put into the swallowing project. Finally, the mother read a book of mine in which I describe a technique I developed called “The Doctor.” It’s actually a modification of an approach to children developed by Milton Ericson, an outlier psychiatrist whose offbeat, creative work has never been given its due in the mental health community. Full disclosure: Whenever, in this column, I have written about this technique, John mental health professionals have comRosemond plained that it may well cause children to Living With be anxious about real doctors. To that, Children I can only say that over the perhaps 20 years that I’ve disseminated this recommendation concerning various problems involving young children, not one parent has ever reported that a child developed doctor anxiety. The method involves simply telling the child in question that The Doctor has said that the problem, whatever it is, is due to lack of sleep. Therefore, until the problem has completely disappeared for a certain period of time, or on any day that the problem occurs, the child must go to bed immediately after the evening meal. Other privileges can also be made part of a package of consequences, but early bedtime usually does it. Concerning the meat-chewing 4-year-old, the parents told him, “We visited with a doctor today and told him that you chew meat and won’t swallow it. He told us that this happens when a child isn’t getting enough sleep. He told us that when you chew meat and won’t swallow it, that you have to go to bed right after supper.” That evening, the child had to go to bed right after supper. From that point on, he has chewed and swallowed. No problem since. There are four points to the story, the first of which is that if the parents had consulted a mental health professional, there is some likelihood the child would have become afflicted with a disorder of some sort — sensory integration disorder, perhaps. When a problem becomes a disorder, it is rarely, if ever, cured in a day. The second point is that the mother now realizes her anxiety was one reason — perhaps the reason — why the problem worsened over a two-year period. When children develop problems, they need parents who are authoritative, not anxious. Anxiety and authority are incompatible. The former cancels the latter. The third point is that the mother’s anxiety reflected the now-ubiquitous tendency of parents to “think psychologically” about problems that arise in or with their kids. This sort of thinking prevents problem-solving — not sometimes, but always — because the question “Why is this happening?” prevents a parent from focusing on what to do about it. The “Why?” question induces what I call “disciplinary paralysis.” The fourth point is that we seem to have forgotten that children do odd things sometimes. These odd things do not necessarily indicate a problem. Sometimes, odd is nothing more than odd.

How they voted WASHINGTON — Here’s a look at how area members of Congress voted over the previous week.

House votes House vote 1 “Obamacare” and canceled health insurance plans: The House has passed the Keep Your Health Plan Act (HR 3350), sponsored by Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich. The bill would allow health insurance companies to continue offering individual health insurance plans that were offered as of the beginning of 2013, notwithstanding the insurance plan requirements established by the health care reform law, also known as Obamacare. Upton said the bill would uphold the promise that consumers could keep their health care plans after Obamacare took effect, preventing millions of consumers from losing their plans and having to buy new, more expensive plans mandated by Obamacare. An opponent, Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., said the bill “creates an entire shadow market of substandard health care plans. It will destabilize the health insurance exchanges, raise premiums and continue to allow insurers to discriminate on the basis of preexisting conditions.” The vote, on Nov. 15, was 261 yeas to 157 nays. Yeas: Rep. Steve Pearce, R-N.M. Nays: Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham, D-N.M., Rep. Ben Ray Luján, D-N.M.

House vote 2 Improving government spending reports: The House has passed the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (HR 2061), sponsored by Rep. Darrell E. Issa, R-Calif. The bill would expand requirements for government agencies to submit accurate data on their spending, to be provided to the public at, limit agency spending on conferences and other events, and streamline reporting requirements for entities that receive government funding. The vote, on Nov. 18, was 388 yeas to 1 nay. Yeas: Lujan Grisham, Luján, Pearce

House Vote 3 Reviewing oil, gas projects on federal lands: The House has rejected an amendment sponsored by Rep. Alan S. Lowenthal, D-Calif., to the Federal Lands Jobs and Energy Security Act (HR 1965). The amendment would have eliminated a bill provision expanding the Interior Department’s authority to grant categorical exclusions from the National Environmental Policy Act for certain proposed oil and natural gas developments on federal lands. Lowenthal said the amendment would help protect the public and the environment by having the Interior Department consider issues such as public health impacts when reviewing proposed oil and gas developments. An opponent, Rep. Doc Hastings, R-Wash., said the amendment’s requirement for the department to consider those issues would add uncertainty to the permitting process by creating more National Environmental Policy Act reviews of projects. The vote, on Nov. 20, was 194 yeas to 228 nays. Yeas: Lujan Grisham, Luján Nays: Pearce

House vote 4 Impact of flooding on oil, gas facilities: The House has rejected an amendment sponsored by Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., to the Federal Lands Jobs and Energy Security Act (HR 1965). The amendment would have required the National Academy of Sciences to report to Congress on the risk that flooding will cause leaks and spills from oil and natural gas tanks, wells and pipelines. The vote, on Nov. 20, was 202 yeas to 221 nays. Yeas: Lujan Grisham, Luján Nays: Pearce

House vote 5 Regulating energy markets: The House has rejected an amendment sponsored by Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., to

the Federal Lands Jobs and Energy Security Act (HR 1965). The amendment would have dedicated $10 million of revenue generated by the bill to fund the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s efforts to regulate speculation in energy markets. The vote, on Nov. 20, was 195 yeas to 226 nays. Yeas: Lujan Grisham, Luján Nays: Pearce

House vote 6 Energy projects on federal lands: The House has passed the Federal Lands Jobs and Energy Security Act (HR 1965), sponsored by Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colo. The bill would approve applications to drill for oil and natural gas on government lands within 60 days of receipt if the Interior Department secretary has failed to issue a decision on an application and order the secretary to streamline permitting processes for energy projects on the lands. Lamborn said that by encouraging energy production on federal lands, the bill “will create new American jobs, promote energy and economic development, and increase revenues to the state and federal governments.” An opponent, Rep. Rush Holt, D-N.J., called the bill an effort “to make things easier for Big Oil while trying to ensure that conservation and hunting and fishing and recreation and renewables, and everything else that these federal lands might be used for, has to take a back seat to drilling.” The vote, on Nov. 20, was 228 yeas to 192 nays. Yeas: Pearce Nays: Lujan Grisham, Luján

House vote 7 Methane emissions from oil, natural gas drilling: The House has rejected an amendment sponsored by Rep. Rush Holt, D-N.J., to the Protecting States’ Rights to Promote American Energy Security Act (HR 2728). The amendment would have maintained the Interior Department secretary’s authority to issue regulations for reducing the venting and flaring of methane from oil and natural gas drilling operations on public lands and to issue regulations for reducing fugitive methane emissions from drilling. Holt said the regulations “will help prevent the wasteful leakage of natural gas, will limit avoidable methane emissions, and will protect air quality and public health.” An opponent, Rep. Doc Hastings, R-Wash., said the amendment conflicted with the bill’s intent of assigning states responsibility for regulating hydraulic fracturing operations within their borders, including methane emissions, and that the Interior Department already had the authority to work with states to limit methane emissions on federal lands. The vote, on Nov. 20, was 190 yeas to 230 nays. Yeas: Lujan Grisham, Luján Nays: Pearce

House vote 8 Federal fracking regulations: The House has passed the Protecting States’ Rights to Promote American Energy Security Act (HR 2728), sponsored by Rep. Bill Flores, R-Texas. The bill would bar the Interior Department from enforcing federal regulations for hydraulic fracturing in any state that already has its own regulations of the process, overriding the state regulations, or enforcing hydraulic fracturing regulations on Indian trust lands without the consent of the party on whose behalf the land is held in trust. Flores said: “There is no demonstrated need for the federal government to waste taxpayer money by duplicating and complicating state efforts. The only reason for the federal government to get involved is to placate those who oppose the shale energy revolution and the jobs boom that has come from it.” An opponent, Rep. Rush Holt, D-N.J., said the bill failed “to address any of the concerns that families have legitimately about the impacts of fracking in their communities. Worse than that, the bill will strip existing protections in place across the entire nation.” The vote, on Nov. 20, was 235

yeas to 187 nays. Yeas: Pearce Nays: Lujan Grisham, Luján

House vote 9 Methane emissions from gas pipelines: The House has rejected an amendment sponsored by Rep. Paul Tonko, D-N.Y., to the Natural Gas Pipeline Permitting Reform Act (HR 1900). The amendment would have required companies proposing to build natural gas pipelines to prove to regulators that their pipelines will utilize, to the extent practicable, methods to minimize methane emissions. The vote, on Nov. 21, was 183 yeas to 233 nays. Yeas: Lujan Grisham, Luján Nays: Pearce

House vote 10 Deadlines for gas pipeline permitting: The House has rejected an amendment sponsored by Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Fla., to the Natural Gas Pipeline Permitting Reform Act (HR 1900). The amendment would have eliminated the bill’s requirement for government agencies to make a final ruling on whether to approve or deny a natural gas pipeline within 90 days of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issuing its final environmental document for the pipeline. The vote, on Nov. 21, was 184 yeas to 233 nays. Yeas: Lujan Grisham, Luján Nays: Pearce

House vote 11 Local input in reviewing planned gas pipelines: The House has rejected an amendment sponsored by Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., to the Natural Gas Pipeline Permitting Reform Act (HR 1900). The amendment would have delayed the beginning of the schedule requiring regulatory decisions on natural gas pipelines until regulators have considered and responded to state and local objections or concerns about the pipelines. The vote, on Nov. 21, was 183 yeas to 236 nays. Yeas: Lujan Grisham, Luján Nays: Pearce

House vote 12 Permitting natural gas pipelines: The House has passed the Natural Gas Pipeline Permitting Reform Act (HR 1900), sponsored by Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan. The bill would require the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to issue a ruling on whether a natural gas pipeline is necessary within 12 months of receiving an application to build the pipeline, and it would require other agencies to make a final ruling on whether to approve or deny the pipeline within 90 days of FERC issuing its final environmental document for the pipeline, with the pipeline deemed approved if a ruling has not been made within 90 days. The vote, on Nov. 21, was 252 yeas to 165 nays. Yeas: Pearce Nays: Lujan Grisham, Luján

Senate votes Senate vote 1 D.C. appeals court judge: The Senate has rejected a motion to end debate on the nomination of Robert Leon Wilkins to serve as a U.S. judge on the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals. The vote, on Nov. 18, was 53 yeas to 38 nays, with a three-fifths majority required to end debate. Yeas: Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M.

Senate vote 2 Transferring Guantánamo Bay detainees: The Senate has rejected an amendment sponsored by Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., to the National Defense Authorization Act (S 1197). The amendment would have barred the government from transferring terrorist detainees at the military’s Guantánamo Bay facility in Cuba to Yemen and other countries. Ayotte said Yemen was not able to keep terrorists from breaking out of its prisons, and allowing terrorist transfers would lead to the terrorists “getting back in the fight against us.” An opponent, Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., said past terrorist transfers have not harmed

U.S. security, and the more than $400 million annual expense of operating the Guantánamo Bay facility was not justified. The vote, on Nov. 19, was 43 yeas to 55 nays. Nays: Heinrich, Udall

Senate vote 3 Rights of Guantánamo Bay detainees: The Senate has rejected an amendment sponsored by Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., to the National Defense Authorization Act (S 1197). The amendment would have stated that detainees at the Guantánamo Bay facility would not gain any additional legal rights if they were transferred to the U.S. Levin said transferring detainees to the U.S. would not increase security risks for Americans and would improve national security, clearing the way to close the wasteful and harmful Guantánamo Bay detention facility. An opponent, Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., said the amendment could give suspected terrorists held in the U.S. constitutional rights, including the right to remain silent, with harmful impacts on U.S. security. The vote, on Nov. 19, was 52 yeas to 46 nays, with a three-fifths majority required for approval. Yeas: Heinrich, Udall

Senate vote 4 Motion to consider circuit judge nominee: The Senate has approved a motion to reconsider the motion to invoke cloture and end debate on the nomination of Patricia Ann Millett to serve as a U.S. Circuit Judge for the District of Columbia Circuit. The vote, on Nov. 21, was 57 yeas to 43 nays. Yeas: Heinrich, Udall

Senate vote 5 Changing senate rules: The Senate has rejected a ruling finding that cloture votes by the Senate to end debate on presidential nominations for all positions other than the Supreme Court require a supermajority of three-fifths (60 votes) to win approval. The vote to approve the ruling, on Nov. 21, was 48 yeas to 52 nays. Nays: Heinrich, Udall

Senate vote 6 Senate debate rule: The Senate has sustained a ruling finding that cloture votes by the Senate to end debate on presidential nominations for all positions other than the Supreme Court require a bare majority of one-half (50 votes) to win approval. A supporter of the ruling, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, said ending the rule under which a threefifths majority of senators must vote to end debate would end a recent pattern of gridlock in the Senate that has harmed the U.S. economy and national security. An opponent of the ruling, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said ending the rule would be a permanent change to the role of the Senate as a check on the president, and that allowing a bare majority of senators to change Senate rules would “destroy the very unique aspects of this institution called the Senate.” The vote, on Nov. 21, was 52 yeas to 48 nays. Yeas: Heinrich, Udall

Senate vote 7 D.C. circuit court judge: The Senate has approved a motion to end debate on the nomination of Patricia Ann Millett to serve as a U.S. Circuit Judge for the District of Columbia Circuit. The vote, on Nov. 21, was 55 yeas to 43 nays. Yeas: Heinrich, Udall

Senate vote 8 Military spending bill: The Senate has rejected a motion to end debate on the National Defense Authorization Act (S 1197), sponsored by Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich. The bill would authorize fiscal 2014 funding for the military, including the Defense Department, military construction projections and defense-related activities of the Energy Department. The vote, on Nov. 21, was 51 yeas to 44 nays, with a three-fifths majority required to end debate. Yeas: Heinrich, Udall

In brief

Habitat set aside for salamander ALBUQUERQUE — Federal wildlife officials have designated more than 140 square miles in northern New Mexico as critical habitat for the Jemez Mountain salamander. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says the area spans parts of Los Alamos, Rio Arriba and Sandoval counties. The salamander was listed as an endangered species in September. Biologists say the primary threats include habitat loss or degradation caused by wildfires, current fire management practices and climate change. Most of the land designated as critical habitat is federal. There are about 2,800 acres that are private property. The agency prepared both an economic and environmental analyses of the designation of critical habitat. The agency says no changes in economic activity or land or water management are expected to result from the critical habitat designation.

F-250 Super Duty that sold for $39,100 and 2006 Dodge truck that sold for $26,100.00 Officials say proceeds from auctions are often shared with state and local law enforcement agencies that participated in the investigations that led to the forfeiture of the assets. New Mexico’s U.S. Marshal, Conrad Candelaria, says aside from encouraging cooperation between law enforcement agencies, the program strips criminals of their ill-gotten gains.

N.M. woman is a Rhodes scholar ALBUQUERQUE — A New Mexico woman attending the United States Military Academy at West Point is one of 32 American students who were selected as the newest Rhodes Scholars and will enter Oxford University next October. Cadet Erin A.T. Mauldin of Albuquerque is a senior majoring in international history and is the only non-French woman to have completed a four-week course at the French Commando School in Mont-Louis, France. The winners were selected from 857 applicants endorsed by 327 different colleges and universities. The scholarships provide all expenses for two or three years of study at the prestigious university in England. Rhodes Scholarships were created in 1902 by the will of British philanthropist Cecil Rhodes. Winners are selected on the basis of high academic achievement, personal integrity, leadership potential and other attributes. The Associated Press

Civility necessary for family holidays


s Turkey Day approaches, partisans might learn from our family gatherings: Suck it up and “get along to move along” — at least for a while. It’s a time to be thankful, be present and savor what we’ve accomplished together, rather than prepare for another policy brawl. Perhaps politicians might cease electioneering and ideological hostilities. Give Americans a break from negativity. As the Beach Boys sing: “Wouldn’t It Be Nice?” Let’s take a collective chill pill. In 30 years of government and politics, I’ve never seen the discord more disconcerting. Many would rather give “the bird” than share turkey dinner with adversaries. Many elected representatives deride each other. Battle lines are drawn deeply with perceptions of the “enemy” penned in stark stereotypes. Many on the right see wimpy weasels weakening the fiber and fortitude of the Founding Fathers. Conversely, some on the left see self-righteous swine swigging 80-proof bottles of patriotism and behaving badly. They do agree on one thing: They hate each other. It’s unfortunate and sets a lousy example to the nation, let alone to the families who’ll soon sit prayerfully giving thanks, rendering patience, reaping what they’ve sown to begin a season of charity, joy and goodwill. News programming magnifies the ideological yipping and yelling, replete with hyperbole-laced fits and close-to-the-edge epitaphs. Soft-spoken intellectuals have no place on the ‘ol magic box. The result: Most folks increasingly consume a brief information bandwidth. Many have turned off and tuned out, seeking to preserve a quality of life for their families. Most sip the tea of their own biases, having grown intolerant with

L those whom they don’t agree. Right, left — it’s irrelevant. We know what we like and like what we know. But, we don’t know everything. What’s to be done? President Ronald Reagan said, “All great change in America begins at the dinner table.” It’s where we gather, look in each other’s eyes, break bread, listen and understand, share laughter, ideas and visions of the future. It’s where we bow our heads, ask for gifts on behalf of others in need — for health, safety, hope and well-being — where we join selflessly in thanks. It’s a good place to start this season. When we understand others’ concerns, we see beyond ourselves, comprehending how our needs may match. Listening. Understanding.

Tolerating and enjoying crazy Uncle Joe without namecalling, raising issues without raising voices. Establishing a shared vision, a common goal: These are the fundamental steps of positive, lasting change. This year, let’s add civility to public discourse and return

Valles Caldera visitors need guidance


he recent mandate of the Valles Caldera National Preserve Trust that, effective Dec. 3, visitors to the Valles Caldera should be allowed to wander freely amongst its 89,000 acres is irresponsible and ill-advised. To permit visitors of all ages to “wander freely” amongst the 89,000 acres of a resource that still does not have a trail system raises all kinds of dire consequences, should visitors get lost or injured. Unlike Bandelier, which has been around since 1916 and has 70 miles of trails that are overseen by an experienced ranger staff, the Valles Caldera is years away from that condition. Its small visitor contact station is inadequate to monitor that use and lacks the visitor protection staff to oversee it. If anything, the trustees are demonstrating their inexperience in running a resource of the Valles Caldera’s magnitude. If the mandate is not rescinded, I would advise visitors to wander freely at their own peril. José Cisneros

Preparing for change According to our reading of current climate change literature, some of which has appeared in The New Mexican, the first priority of businesses and innovators in Santa Fe must be mitigating and adapting to the impacts of the on going drought and global climate change.

Indeed, it must be the priority of us all. Otherwise, Santa Fe has no future. Ken Timmerman

I want to especially thank The Santa Fe New Mexican for providing three full-page ads for MusicFest, which directly celebrates and benefits music education for our students. After seeing the front-page article on Santa Fe Concert Association’s EPIK performances, featuring young musicians, I am again reminded of The New Mexican’s commitment to positive news.

ong drives to visit relatives for Thanksgiving are as much a part of the holiday tradition as turkeys and pumpkin pie. Fading, though, are the days when kids battled to find the most out-of-state license plates, or families played “I spy with my little eye” as a unit. Today’s families have a movie running in the back seat for the young ones, with teens hooked up to their smartphone while Dad reads on the iPad and Mom drives, listening to tunes on the Sirius satellite radio. The family road trip experience has become an individual interaction with technology. Hardly the way memories are built. But New Mexico State University has found a new technology that could turn family traveling into a communal and educational experience — more like the good ol’ days, with a modern twist. A free iPad application offers fast facts about New Mexico’s 22 Indian tribes, all in a format that educates about Native culture. Justin McHorse, a director of NMSU’s American Indian Program, said the notion for app came from a board game created several years ago by Michael Ray. Users access the app to place each of the state’s pueblos and tribes on the map. Once the location is matched, historical facts and information show up. The university’s Learning Games Lab developed the app, which was funded by the American Indian Program. We think it is useful for all New Mexicans to learn more about the state’s original inhabitants (where, by the way, a pre-Thanksgiving feast took place at Ohkay Owingeh in 1598, years before the Pilgrims hit the East Coast. Our Thanksgiving is on April 30). In addition to the app being a fun way to while away the miles, we hope schools and teachers incorporate the information. It could supplement New Mexico history courses to increase knowledge about Native culture. Modern kids like using technology to learn — whether driving with family or sitting in the classroom. Providing knowledge about the state’s original inhabitants through the latest technology makes sense, and perhaps use of the app will spread across the country. One of the best ways to combat ignorance about the continent’s first inhabitants is by the spread of knowledge. Eventually, with knowledge, residents in states with fewer Native communities can begin to understand that Indians are living cultures, not just a relic of history.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Nov. 25, 1913: VATICAN CITY — The Vatican Ecumenical Council today put aside, at least temporarily, controversial declarations on Jews and on religious liberty. In another major development, the Roman Catholic assembly voted to allow the use of modern languages throughout the sacraments, such as baptism and marriage, without even retaining Latin for key phrases. Nov. 25, 1963: DALLAS — Lee Harvey Oswald may have left behind in death a blueprint for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Oswald was slain Sunday by Jack Ruby, 52, a nightclub owner and self-appointed executioner, who undertook swift, savage reprisal for the Kennedy murder. Hours later, the Dallas Morning News, in a copyrighted story, said police officers who searched Oswald’s room found a map with a line on it marking the path of the bullet that killed the President during a motorcade Friday. Neither the FBI nor the Secret Service would comment on the news report.

More colleges have harder time filling classes By Nick Anderson

The Washington Post

Bianca Calin leads a group of high school seniors on a tour of St. Mary’s College of Maryland on Nov. 1. BILL O’LEARY/THE WASHINGTON POST

much financial aid to offer are reduced to sheer guesswork. For applicants, it invites a rethinking of their aspirations: In a turbulent market, what exactly is a “safety” school, where admission prospects are strong, and what is a “reach,” where the odds are longer? Students also could have more leverage if aiming for a school that is not in the top tier, college analyst Edward Fiske said. “If you can pay full freight, it’s a buyer’s market,” he said. The decline in prospective students and the enormous costs associated with running a college create a challenge for schools that rely on tuition to pay the bills. It leaves some colleges vulnerable to major financial shifts if students choose to go elsewhere, and it creates a sometimes urgent need to fill seats for the tuition dollars. Families appear to be more price sensitive than in the past, and they might be in a better position to pick and choose from among certain kinds of schools based on how much they cost.

For the most prestigious universities, the competition is not much of a problem. Top-tier schools draw many thousands of strong applicants and could fill their classes several times over. Overall, though, higher education has begun a retrenchment. For many colleges, teenagers with academic mettle and financial means are in short supply. Loyola University New Orleans and Central College in Iowa, both private, had notable enrollment shortfalls this year. Enrollment plunged at the private Howard University in the District of Columbia in 2012 but rebounded partially this fall. Moody’s Investors Service has downgraded its credit ratings of Howard, Central and St. Mary’s College of Maryland, among other schools, and warned that colleges face heightened recruiting competition. Nowhere is the challenge more visible than at St. Mary’s, a public honors college in southern Maryland. Two consecutive years of declining freshman

enrollment jolted the school, resulting in an abrupt change in leadership, a lower credit rating and a drive to find qualified students. This fall, there are 384 freshmen, the smallest class in 13 years. Admissions officers who failed to visit key areas of Maryland in the last cycle are now fanning out to all corners of the state. Professors are lunching with prospective students and parents on the tranquil waterfront campus. Tuition discounts will be dangled to more admitted students. The college’s interim president, Ian Newbould, said St. Mary’s must intensify its outreach. “What we are doing is changing the culture from gatherers to hunters,” he said. “A lot of places kind of followed the ‘build it and they will come’ model. Well, the world’s changed. There’s far more competition.” With high fixed expenses, few colleges are rolling back prices. Average tuition and fees have soared 27 percent, to $8,893, at

$3,000 each. In 2013, he said, it offered about 30 of those. Small merit awards are sometimes known as “cocktail party scholarships” because they give parents something to brag about with their friends. But they are often deal-clinchers. St. Mary’s officials say they will offer more of them during this cycle. Another misstep: The admissions team visited fewer Maryland high schools than in years past. Fehrs said recruiters inexplicably bypassed Howard County, one of the state’s top producers of college-bound students. Also, the college set what in hindsight was an unrealistic enrollment target of 470 freshmen. In the previous decade, St. Mary’s drew an average firstyear class of 448. But in 2012, the total fell sharply, to 419. In May, the college’s president, Joseph Urgo, disclosed that enrollment was falling far short and that the school would need budget cuts.


WASHINGTON — A growing number of colleges nationwide are scrambling to fill classes, a trend analysts say is driven by a decline in the number of students graduating from high school and widespread concern among families about the price of higher education. The admissions upheaval, affecting lower-tier colleges to esteemed regional schools, contrasts with the extraordinary demand for the most elite colleges and universities. Demographics pose a major hurdle for many colleges that market primarily to high school students. The number of new high school graduates peaked in 2011, after 17 years of growth, and is not projected to reach a new high until 2024, according to the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education. Analysts and educators expect that a rising share of incoming students will need major financial aid. The economic recovery is also hurting enrollment because fewer people go to college when jobs are available. Nationwide, college enrollment fell about 2 percent this past school year. According to state data released this week, Maryland colleges have 2.8 percent fewer students this fall, the second straight year of decline and the sharpest annual drop in 30 years. All of this means a new bottom line for colleges, said Brian Prescott, the commission’s director of policy research. “They’ve got to sweat whether or not they’re going to be able to make their classes, in ways they didn’t before,” Prescott said. For colleges, the uncertainty often means that crucial decisions about how many applicants to admit and how

public four-year colleges since 2008, and they have risen 14 percent, to $30,094, at private nonprofit schools. Those College Board numbers account for inflation but not discounts offered for financial need or academic merit. At St. Mary’s, tuition and fees for Maryland residents are $14,865 this year, compared with $9,161 at the public University of Maryland at College Park. St. Mary’s froze in-state tuition this year after years of increases. Administrators and faculty at St. Mary’s say a few big mistakes fueled the enrollment meltdown. The college cut back on small merit awards for admitted students with solid credentials and offered larger scholarships to those with exceptional records. The move backfired. Many targeted students chose more prestigious schools. “We think that really hurt us,” Newbould said. Matthew Fehrs, an assistant political science professor who is versed in the college’s financial aid and admissions policies, said that in 2012, St. Mary’s offered admitted students about 150 scholarships worth less than

Lobos take 3rd in Charleston Classic Kirk leads No. 19 UNM to win over Davidson By Pete Iacobelli

The Associated Press

Shanshan Feng poses with her trophy after winning the CME Group Titleholders on Sunday at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Fla.

CHARLESTON, S.C. — No. 19 New Mexico can count on its four veterans to lead the way. The starters back from last year’s Mountain West champions combined for 55 points to help the Lobos bounce back from the season’s first loss. They beat Davidson 79-58 to take third place at the Charleston Classic on Sunday.

Cameron Bairstow scored Davidson 58 18 points, and Alex Kirk had his fifth double-double in as many games with 16 points and 14 rebounds. Kendall Williams scored 12 points, while backcourt mate Hugh Greenwood added nine points and 10 rebounds for New Mexico (4-1). “I know what I’m going to get out of my four guys,” said first-year coach Craig Neal. “I was hoping and praying that we’d bounce back, and UNM

Feng wins LPGA Tour finale by one stroke


By Doug Ferguson The Associated Press

NAPLES, Fla. — The only trouble Shanshan Feng faced Sunday was figuring out how to light the cannon that signaled the end of the LPGA Tour season. She made the golf look easy at the LPGA Titleholders. Two shots behind going into the final round, the 24-year-old from China ran off four birdies in the opening six holes to seize control, and she closed with a 6-under 66 to win by one shot and claim the richest prize in women’s golf. It also was her second win this year, which meant as much to her as the $700,000 check. “I had a goal to win two tournaments,” she said. “I won in China. I didn’t think I was going to achieve my goal, and I made it in my last tournament in Florida.” Feng said her win last month in Beijing required a little luck — a shot that took a weird and wild bounce out of the rough, raced across the green and crashed into the flagstick to set up a tap-in eagle. Sunday was sheer skill.

Fresno St. falls behind NIU in BCS standings By Ralph D. Russo The Associated Press

Northern Illinois moved ahead of Fresno State in the BCS standings and up to No. 14 as the Huskies and Bulldogs jockey to be the last BCS buster. NIU jumped two spots Sunday and Fresno State slipped one to 16th. The top three teams in the BCS standings were unchanged: Alabama, Florida State and Ohio State — the remaining undefeated teams in BCS automatic qualifying conferences. The other major college unbeatens, Northern Illinois and Fresno State, are fighting for one automatic bid. They have to finish in the top 12 of the last BCS standings, which comes out Dec. 8, or finish in the top 16 while ranking ahead of an AQconference champion. Central Florida is in position to win the American Athletic Conference auto-bid, but is 19th in the latest standings. Northern Illinois reached the BCS last season by being ranked ahead of the champion of the Big East. The Huskies then lost to Florida State in the Orange Bowl.

Pats stun in comeback

Gostkowski, New England rally past Denver in overtime By Howard Ulman

The Associated Press

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. he final error in a game filled with mistakes helped the Patriots to a stunning comeback win. Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 31-yard field goal in overtime after a misplayed punt return by Denver, lifting New England to a 34-31 victory over the Broncos on Sunday night. “We had some plays in the first half that didn’t go our way, so it was nice to get a good bounce and we needed it,” said Tom Brady, who helped


the Patriots put together a terrific comeback in the second half. Denver’s Tony Carter ran into Ryan Allen’s punt after it landed, and Nate Ebner recovered for New England at the Broncos 13-yard line. After Brady ran twice to line up the kick, Gostkowski connected for his 21st successful field goal attempt. The Patriots lost fumbles on their first three possessions, but Brady threw for three touchdowns to lead the Patriots (8-3) from a 24-0 halftime deficit to a 31-24 lead as New England scored on its first five possessions of the second half. Then Peyton Manning threw an 11-yard scoring pass to Demaryius Thomas for the Broncos (9-2), tying it at 31. But Carter’s gaffe was the third lost fumble for the Broncos in the second half. The early turnovers helped Denver to a big halftime advantage, but the Patriots took the lead

when Brady hit Julian Edelman for a TD early in the fourth. Gostkowski’s 31-yard field goal made it 31-24 midway through the fourth. “We calmed down. We played each play one play at time,” Edelman said of the difference in the second part of the game. “We didn’t turn the ball over in the second half.” But Manning, who had thrown for only 73 yards in the first 3½ quarters, led the Broncos on an 80-yard drive. Twice the Broncos were rescued by penalties: First when a defensive holding penalty negated an interception, and again when a pass interference on third-and-7 from the Patriots 17 gave Denver a first down. On the next play, Manning lobbed one to Thomas in the left corner of the end zone to tie it.

Last-second field goal drives Dallas past Giants Cowboys end New York’s playoff hopes, tie for first place in NFC East By Tom Canavan

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Even though they got help from the Giants, Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys took this pivotal game and all but buried New York’s slim hopes of making the playoffs. Romo threw two touchdowns and led a drive that set up Dan Bailey’s 35-yard field goal on the final play as the Cowboys won 24-21 Sunday, ending the Giants’ four-game winning streak and denying them a place in NFL history. The victory moved the Cowboys

(6-5) into a firstplace tie with Giants 21 idle Philadelphia in the NFC East with five games left. It left the Giants (4-7) wondering about what they gave away in two losses to Dallas. Romo hit two third-down passes on the 14-play drive that covered the final 4:45 after New York tied the game on a 4-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Louis Murphy Jr., and a 2-point conversion run by Andre Brown. Romo hit Jason Witten on TDs of 20 and 2 yards, and Dallas got a defensive touchdown on a 50-yard fumble return by Jeff Heath.

Monday, November 25, 2013 THE NEW MEXICAN

Lobos: Kirk uses height against Wildcats Continued from Page B-1 I thought we did. But it was because of our leadership, because of our four major guys that have come back.” Brian Sullivan had 17 points and four 3-pointers for Davidson, which played without injured top scorer De’Mon Brooks. The Lobos aren’t happy with their tournament results — “We came here to win,” Neal said. But they believe they’ve made progress at blending in new players in the rotation. “It’s not frustrating, but sometimes you’re like, ‘All right, let’s move on,’ ” Kirk said of the mistakes that come early on in team building. “They’re learning and they’re getting better each day. And that’s all the emphasis we’re putting on them.” There’s evidence the growing pains are easing. Sophomore Cleveland Thomas had the go-ahead 3-pointer Thursday in New Mexico’s wild 97-94 doubleovertime win against UAB. Freshman Cullen Neal, the coach’s son, had 15 points and three 3-pointers against Davidson. “Us, the older guys, we do like to see that,” Kirk said. The Lobos (4-1) had hoped to be playing in the eight-team tournament’s title game, but fell to Massachusetts 81-65 on Friday. The 7-foot Kirk took full advantage of Davidson’s size disadvantage and largely had his way inside. It was the

New Mexico’s Cameron Bairstow drives to the basket over the defense of Davidson’s Tyler Kalinoski, left, and Brian Sullivan during the second half of Sunday’s game against Davidson in Charleston, S.C. MIC SMITH/THE ASSOCIATED PrESS

junior’s 15th career game with double figures in points and rebounds. Kirk also had three blocks. Davidson tried to negate New Mexico’s edge in height with some long-distance shooting, attempting 20 3-pointers in the opening half.

But the strategy came up short as the Wildcats fell to 1-5 for the second time in five years. Davidson coach Bob McKillop had led the school to seven NCAA Tournaments in 25 years, including the past two seasons as Southern Conference champions. He says

the Wildcats won’t wallow in their rough start. “I know darn well that they’re down,” he said of his players. “They don’t accept losing. They’re not going to rationalize it. They’re going to say, ‘I have to improve this. I have to improve that.’ And they’ll work at it.” Davidson entered with a well-earned reputation as a slayer of college basketball giants. This group has so far struggled against the big boys with its losses to Duke, Virginia, Clemson and New Mexico. The Wildcats have North Carolina and Wichita State ahead next month before league play starts in January. Brooks, the preseason Southern Conference player of the year, wore his warm-up suit and used crutches to get on and off the court Sunday, holding his right leg up off the ground as he walked. There was no official word about the extent of Brooks’ injury, and McKillop didn’t know how long he might be out. The Wildcats don’t play again until Nov. 30 at Stetson. Without Brooks, who was hurt Friday, Davidson had little chance of hanging down low with Kirk, Bairstow and the taller, physical Lobos. Kirk had nine of his team’s first 13 points. The Wildcats tightened up around the 7-footer after that, running two or three players at him each time he caught the ball. That opened space for Bairstow.

BCS: Fresno stays unbeaten against UNM Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr celebrates a touchdown pass against New Mexico during the first half of Saturday’s football game in Fresno, Calif.

Continued from Page B-1 better computer ratings. NIU is seventh in the computer ratings, while coming in 17th in the Harris poll and 20th in the USA Today coaches’ poll. Fresno State is 13th in each poll, but 17th in the computers. Jerry Palm, who analyzes the BCS for, said he was surprised Northern Illinois made such a big move after winning at Mid-American Conference rival Toledo last week. Fresno State stayed unbeaten with a win against Mountain West Conference foe New Mexico. Neither team has played a strong schedule, Palm said. “What baffles me is we have such a disparity in the computers between two teams that we’re splitting hairs over,” he said. “That’s a head scratcher.” Palm said NIU’s lead could be temporary as Fresno State plays tougher opponents the rest of the way. NIU plays at home against Western Michigan (1-10) on Tuesday and then faces either Buffalo or Bowling Green in the MAC championship game. Fresno State plays at San Jose State (5-5) on Friday and then either Utah State or Boise State in the Mountain West championship. The Bowl Championship Series is done after this season. The four-team College Football Playoff replaces it next year. The Crimson Tide and Seminoles are still on course to meet in the final BCS


championship game if they can stay unbeaten. Ohio State is on deck if either of the top two slip up. The Buckeyes were in danger of being passed by Baylor, but Oklahoma State took care of that by blasting the Bears 49-17 on Saturday night. Auburn (fourth) and Missouri (fifth) are behind the Buckeyes and could make an interesting case for being in title game if they can win out and become SEC champions with just one loss. But the Buckeyes (.9200 BCS average) have a good-sized lead on both the Auburn Tigers (.8326) and Missouri Tigers (.8077). Ohio State is third in each poll, followed by Clemson. Auburn is fifth and Missouri is sixth. The Buckeyes also are third in the computer ratings. “They’re not going to pass Ohio State,”

Palm said of Auburn and Missouri. “The coaches in particular are not going to allow an undefeated to not play for the title. They understand how hard it is to finish unbeaten. It hasn’t happened yet in the BCS and there is no reason to think it would this year.” Alabama (11-0) plays Auburn on Saturday, with the winner advancing to the Southeastern Conference championship game as the SEC West winner. Missouri or South Carolina will represent the East, depending on whether the Tigers beat Texas A&M at home. Florida State (11-0) plays struggling rival Florida at home Saturday and then moves on to the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game, where Duke, Virginia Tech, Miami or Georgia Tech will be the opponent.

LPGA: Inbee Park finishes in fifth place Continued from Page B-1 Feng was in such control of her game that she missed three birdie chances inside 6 feet in the middle of her round that kept the outcome in doubt until the end. Gerina Piller stayed within one shot of Feng, and she hit a 7-iron into 10 feet for a chance at birdie to force a playoff. The putt narrowly missed, and Piller had to settle for a 69 and her best finish on the LPGA Tour. Pornanong Phatlum of Thailand had a 70 and finished alone in third. Feng finished at 15-under 273, the number she had in mind at the start of the day — even if it didn’t result in a win. “Before I started, I never thought I was going to win,” Feng said. “I knew I was only two behind. But I thought all the people in the last group were really strong competitors.” No one was stronger than Feng, who played the final 31 holes without a bogey. Natalie Gulbis, tied for the 54-hole lead with Pornanong and Piller, wasn’t up to the

task. Going for her first win in six years, Gulbis didn’t make a birdie until the 14th hole, and by then she couldn’t stop a spectacular slide. Gulbis closed with an 82. Stacy Lewis had to settle for only one prize. The Women’s British Open champion became the first American since Beth Daniel in 1994 to win the Vare Trophy for the lowest scoring average. She had to win to capture the money list, but after an early birdie, Lewis never regained any momentum. She closed with a 71 and tied for sixth. “As Americans, we hear about that all the time — it’s been 18 years or it’s been 20 years or whatever it is,” Lewis said. “I’m just glad to have that kind of checked off the list. We’ve got to get American golf on the map. That’s been the goal and I’m just fortunate I’ve been playing good golf.” Inbee Park, who clinched player of the year last week in Mexico, had a 68 to finish fifth. She won the LPGA Tour money title. The only other award at

stake Sunday was rookie of the year. That went to Moriya Jutanugarn of Thailand, who closed with a 72. She won by one point over Caroline Masson of Germany. Feng just stole the show on the final day of the season. As winner of the CME Group Titleholders, she lit the cannon to signal the end of the year. That proved far more difficult than the 7-iron she hit into 8 feet for birdie on the 15th, or that pitch up the slope on the 17th hole that led to her final birdie. “I was really nervous,” she said. “I don’t know how I did it. Once it touched the thing, and then it just went out in like a half a second, and I was shocked it released so fast and it was gone already. I was really excited.” As for that paycheck? Feng says she is not a big spender and said she would put it in the bank, perhaps buy herself a small gift later. Piller put up a good fight. She stuffed her approach on No. 15 to within 4 feet for birdie to pull within one shot. Feng was in the group ahead and went over

the green on her second shot into the par-5 17th, and then hit a chip that settled within tap-in range to reach 15 under. Piller matched her birdie at the 17th with a solid up-and-down from a collection area, but she couldn’t get that last birdie to force a playoff. “I was happy with the way I hit the putt,” Piller said. “I just didn’t read enough break.” The win should take Feng to No. 4 in the world. Park, who went into a minor slump after winning her third straight major at the U.S. Women’s Open, closed out her LPGA season with two top 10s. She still has one event left in Taiwan before taking a long winter’s break, with plans to go to Australia to prepare for next season. She won the money title for the second straight season. “I played better this year,” Park said. “There is definitely room to improve for next year and I probably have a little more pressure on me next year, but I think I have a lot of pressure this year, anyways. A little bit more doesn’t really make a difference for me.”

Clippers rout Bulls The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Jared Dudley scored a seasonhigh 21 points, Clippers 121 Chris Bulls 82 Paul added 16 points and 17 assists, and the Clippers jumped all over Chicago in Derrick Rose’s absence for a 121-82 victory Sunday. J.J. Redick scored 19 points, and Blake Griffin had 15 points and 12 rebounds in the Pacific Division-leading Clippers’ seventh win in nine games. Los Angeles finished strong in a stretch of four games in five days, posting the biggest margin of victory over Chicago in franchise history. THUNDER 95, JAZZ 73 In Oklahoma City, Kevin Durant scored 19 points, and Serge Ibaka had 17 points and 11 rebounds to help Oklahoma City extend its best season-opening start at home with a win over struggling Utah. The Thunder (9-3) played without All-Star point guard russell Westbrook, who sat out to rest his surgically repaired right knee. PISTONS 109, NETS 97 In New York, reserve rodney Stuckey scored a season-high 27 points and Detroit sent Brooklyn to a fifth straight loss and sole possession of last place in the Atlantic Division.

The Nets, with their enormous payroll and enormous expectations, fell to 3-10, a half-game behind the New York Knicks, and were hearing boos at Barclays Center in the second half. Greg Monroe had 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Pistons, who bounced back from consecutive losses to Atlanta. SUNS 104, MAGIC 96 In Orlando, Fla., Goran Dragic scored 23 points, and Gerald Green added 20 to lead Phoenix over Orlando. Two days after stopping a four-game losing streak at Charlotte, the Suns took the lead early in the first quarter and never relinquished it. After Orlando trimmed what had been a 14-point deficit to three late in the fourth quarter, Channing Frye made a difficult jumper, and Dragic scored the next seven points to put it away. Dragic made 10 of 17 shots and also had 13 assists. Frye finished with 14 points and seven rebounds. LAKERS 100, KINGS 86 In Los Angeles, reserve forward Xavier Henry scored 12 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter, Pau Gasol had 20 points and 10 rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Sacramento Kings Sunday night. Steve Blake finished with 12 assists, nine points and five rebounds. Blake, who has started all 14 games for the Lakers at point guard in place of the injured Steve Nash, has recorded double digits in assists in each of the last five.

Comeback: Bitter temperatures make play difficult for both sides Continued from Page B-1 Brady led the Patriots to three straight touchdowns in the third quarter to cut Denver’s lead to 24-21 heading into the fourth. He was 21 for 26 for 228 yards and three TDs in the second half of the much-heralded matchup with Manning. Brady led New England 80 yards for a touchdown to open the second half, thanks to a 33-yard completion to Rob Gronkowski and a 5-yard scoring pass to Edelman. Montee Ball coughed it up on Denver’s next possession, and six plays later Brandon Bolden ran it in from the 1 to make it a 10-point game. A 6-yard touchdown pass to Gronkowski with 19 seconds left in the third quarter cut the Broncos’ lead to 24-21. Von Miller returned a fumble 60 yards for a touchdown and

then strip-sacked Brady to force another turnover in the first quarter, setting up Knowshon Moreno’s 2-yard TD run. Moreno finished with a careerhigh 224 yards on 37 carries. When New England got the ball back, it held onto it for just two plays before LeGarrette Blount had the ball knocked loose by safety Duke Ihenacho. Linebacker Danny Trevathan fell on it and was ruled down by contact, negating a return that would have had the Broncos at the Patriots 11. Instead, Denver settled for Matt Prater’s 27-yard field goal that made it 17-0. The Broncos added another touchdown when Manning hit Jacob Tamme from 10 yards out for the only score of the second quarter. On a night with a kickoff temperature of 20 degrees

and a wind chill of 6, Manning completed 11 of 17 passes for 73 yards in the first three quarters while Moreno ran 25 times for 139 yards. New England had lost five fumbles all season coming into the game and was sixth in the NFL in net turnovers. But Stevan Ridley, who coughed it up on the opening drive, has fumbled in three consecutive games, losing two. Denver had a turnover of its own after forcing New England to punt right before the half. Trindon Holliday let the ball bounce off his leg, giving the Patriots the ball at the Broncos 42 with 5 seconds left. Brady’s Hail Mary was far short of the end zone and incomplete. The temperature made it difficult on the players on each side and also could have

been the reason that first the play clocks and then the game clocks went out, forcing the ref-

erees to keep the official time on the field. The clocks came back early in the second quarter.

Brady and Manning have six regular-season MVP awards between them and three more in the Super Bowl, where they’ve combined to win four NFL championships. It’s the 14th time they’ve met, with Brady holding a 9-4 edge. This time, though, Manning had former Patriots receiver Wes Welker on his side. Brady’s longtime favorite target went to Denver as a free agent and he entered the game as the Broncos’ leading receiver with 61 catches. Welker was a nonfactor with four catches for 31 yards. Both teams had players knocked out of the game: Patriots offensive lineman Marcus Cannon had an ankle injury and Denver receiver Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie injured his shoulder.

Chargers hand Chiefs second straight loss By Dave Skretta

The Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Chiefs’ offense finally proved it could win a game. Their defense finally let them down. After driving for a go-ahead touchdown in the waning minutes against San Chargers 41 Diego on Sunday, Chiefs 38 Alex Smith and the rest of the offense could only watch as Philip Rivers answered with a 26-yard pass to Seyi Ajirotutu with 24 seconds left that gave the Chargers a dramatic 41-38 victory. It was the most points the Chiefs had scored this season. Also the most they’d allowed. “I mean, yeah, when we scored, we put the pressure back on them,” said Smith, who threw for 292 yards and three touchdowns. “They’d been good on offense all day, and Philip was playing good, so yeah, there was a chance. But we knew we’d put the pressure back on them.” Rivers was unflappable, though, against a Chiefs defense missing top pass rushers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston. He took advantage of time in the pocket to shred the Kansas City secondary, and then hit the most unlikely of his wide receivers with the pass that decided the game. “It was a great throw,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “It’s a game of inches, and we were off by an inch on coverage. We had a man over top and a man

underneath and they put it right on the spot.” The touchdown, and the eighth lead change, deflated a raucous Arrowhead Stadium.

Smith had calmly guided Kansas City (9-2) downfield just moments earlier, completing five of six passes on the drive. His throw into tight coverage to Dwayne Bowe with 1:22 left gave the

Chiefs a 38-34 lead and put the game in the hands of a defense that had been among the NFL’s best. Just not on this day. And not against this quarterback.

Rivers wound up throwing for 392 yards and three touchdowns for San Diego (5-6), which ended a threegame losing streak. Danny Woodhead had touchdowns rushing and receiving as he picked up the slack for Chargers running back Ryan Mathews, who left with a hamstring injury. Ladarius Green had a 60-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter, while Keenan Allen had nine catches for 124 yards against a porous Chiefs defensive backfield. “It’s one of those you’ll never forget, that’s for sure,” Rivers said. “It’s kind of what our season’s been about. Can you drive and score at the end in 2 minutes?” San Diego finished with 491 yards of offense against a Chiefs defense that had allowed more than 17 points just once: last week’s 27-17 defeat in Denver. One of the big reasons for that was their inability to get pressure on Rivers after Hali and Houston left in the second quarter. Hali had a sprained right ankle and Houston a sprained left elbow, and both of them are due for MRI exams Monday. “It’s tough, the way those guys dominate and get pressure,” Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers said. “But at the end of the day, us as a unit, we’ve got to get better. No excuses, man, no excuses. San Diego came out and played. They executed. They were moving the ball at will, it seemed like today. So we’ve got to go back to the drawing board and improve what we do.”

Packers’ rally ends in rare tie Dallas: N.Y. loses must-win game The Associated Press

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Backup quarterback Matt Flynn threw for 218 yards to help Packers 26 the PackVikings 26 ers storm back from a 16-point deficit, but Minnesota and Green Bay could only muster field goals in overtime. Mason Crosby hit from 20 yards at 10:28 of the extra period, and Blair Walsh connected from 35 with 3:54 left. Greg Jennings, playing his first game at Lambeau Field as a member of the Vikings (3-8-1), dropped a third-down pass with 2:11 left. The Packers (5-5-1) also stumbled on their next possession. One last chance for the Vikings went nowhere with 1 second left, and the teams walked off with the first tie in the NFL since the Rams and 49ers ended 24-24 on Nov. 11, 2012. It was the first game under the tiebreaking rules instituted in 2012 that ended in a tie after both teams kicked field goals to begin the extra period. It was the second time a game had each team make field goals to open overtime; Houston won the other last November over Jacksonville. BUCCANEERS 24, LIONS 21 In Detroit, Matthew Stafford’s fourth interception went in and out of Calvin Johnson’s hands to rookie Johnthan Banks inside the Tampa Bay 5 in the final minute, allowing the Buccaneers to hold on. Tampa Bay (3-8) has won three straight after losing its first eight, joining the 1978 St. Louis Cardinals as the only team to do that. Tampa Bay rookie Mike Glennon, meanwhile, avoided mistakes. Glennon was 14 of 21 for 247 yards and threw two touchdowns to Tiquan Underwood, whose second score was an 85-yard reception early in the fourth quarter. The Lions (6-5) have lost two straight for the first time this season. They can blame five turnovers for throwing away a chance to improve their playoff positioning because no one in the NFC North won Sunday. Johnson had seven receptions for 115 yards, but he and the Lions didn’t take advantage of the Bucs playing the second half without cornerback Darrelle Revis (groin). PANTHERS 20, DOLPHINS 16 In Miami Gardens, Fla., the Panthers made their seventh win in a row and had two consecutive late comebacks led by Cam Newton. Carolina’s quarterback converted a fourth-and-10 at his 20 with a completion to keep alive the winning drive, and the Panthers went on to score a touchdown with 43 seconds left. Newton hit Greg Olsen with a 1-yard pass to cap a 12-play drive. Carolina also rallied past the New England Patriots with a late drive last Monday. The Panthers (8-3) overcame

a 16-3 first-half deficit to extend their longest winning streak since 2003. Miami (5-6) fell to 2-2 since tackle Jonathan Martin left the team and the Dolphins’ bullying scandal began to mushroom. Miami’s Ryan Tannehill nearly connected with Mike Wallace for a 60-yard score in the final seconds, but the pass fell incomplete at the goal line. Tannehill and Wallace earlier teamed up for a 53-yard touchdown and a 57-yard completion to set up a field goal. RAMS 42, BEARS 21 In St. Louis, Tavon Austin’s 65-yard touchdown run — his fourth straight this season from beyond midfield — jump-started a 21-point first quarter. The Rams (5-6) followed a 30-point rout of Indianapolis in front of their largest crowd of the season, about half of them clad Bears orange, with another big win. Late scores by rookie backup running back Benny Cunningham and defensive end Robert Quinn helped finish off the Bears (6-5), who remained tied for the NFC North lead with Detroit. Josh McCown passed for 352 yards and two touchdowns with an interception for Chicago, which had won four straight in the series. The Bears had a 62-yard punt return for a touchdown by Devin Hester nullified by a holding penalty in the fourth quarter. CARDINALS 40, COLTS 11 In Glendale, Ariz., Carson Palmer threw two touchdown passes to Larry Fitzgerald, Karlos Dansby returned an interception 22 yards for a score, and the Cardinals won their fourth in a row. Cardinals coach Bruce Arians beat the team that propelled him to coaching prominence last season, when he took over as Colts interim coach while Chuck Pagano fought leukemia. Arians was the NFL’s Coach of the Year for 2012. Fitzgerald caught five passes for 52 yards, becoming the youngest player in NFL history to reach 11,000 yards receiving. Arizona’s Michael Floyd had his second straight 100yard receiving day with seven catches for 104 yards for the Cardinals (7-4). Andrew Luck threw for 163 yards, but had only 84 through three quarters as the Colts (7-4) fell behind 34-3.

New York had alternated wins and losses in its first 10 games, but the pattern ended here with its second straight defeat. Jets coach Rex Ryan, who helped run Baltimore’s defense from 19992008, fell to 0-3 against his former team. STEELERS 27, BROWNS 11 In Cleveland, Ben Roethlisberger threw two touchdown passes and beat Cleveland again as the Steelers moved back into the playoff picture. Roethlisberger connected on a 41-yard TD pass to Antonio Brown in the first half, and hit Emmanuel Sanders on a 4-yarder in the third quarter for the Steelers (5-6), who have turned their season around following an 0-4 start. Roethlisberger finished 22 of 34 for 217 yards and improved to 16-1 against the Browns (4-7), who have lost five of six and seen a promising year turn into yet another miserable one. Browns quarterback Jason Campbell sustained a concussion in the third quarter when he was sacked by cornerback William Gay. Campbell was struck in the helmet by Gay and his head snapped back and banged the turf. Gay later picked off Brandon Weeden and returned it 21 yards for a TD, giving the Steelers a 27-3. TITANS 23, RAIDERS 19 In Oakland, Calif., Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Kendall Wright with 10 seconds remaining to cap a mistake-free performance that put the Titans back in playoff contention. Fitzpatrick also threw a 54-yard TD pass to Justin Hunter and Rob Bironas added three field goals to give Tennessee (5-6) its second win in seven games. But despite the recent slump, the Titans find themselves in a six-way tie for the sixth and final playoff spot in the AFC with five weeks left in the regular season. The Raiders (4-7) missed a chance to get into that group as the defense failed to hold onto a late lead and Sebastian Janikowski missed two field goals.

JAGUARS 13, TEXANS 6 In Houston, in a matchup of the AFC’s worst teams, the Texans couldn’t stop their skid. Maurice Jones-Drew ran for a season-high 84 yards and a touchdown and the Jaguars RAVENS 19, JETS 3 extended the Texans’ losing In Baltimore, Joe Flacco threw streak to a franchise-record nine a 66-yard touchdown pass to games.

Continued from Page B-1 lied over the past month to get into position to challenge for a playoff spot. They knew this was a must-win game because they had lost to Dallas in the season opener after turning over the ball six times. They also knew the Cowboys were facing questions after a blowout loss to New Orleans before a bye week. Romo and his team answered them at the end of a week in which owner Jerry Jones said coach Jason Garrett would return next season.

True to form, New York tried another comeback after falling behind 21-6 in the third quarter. But Romo took it from the Giants on the final drive that started at the Dallas 20 on a cold and blustery day. He hit Dez Bryant on a 19-yard pass on third-and-8 and added throws of 17 yards to Miles Austin and 13 to Cole Beasley, the latter on third-and-10 from the New York 28. With the wind howling, a long field goal would have been tough. Instead, that play gave Dallas a first down at the 15 and

Bailey converted after Romo took a couple of kneel-downs. The Giants’ tying drive was kept alive by a 22-yard pass from Manning to Victor Cruz on third-and-8 from the Dallas 27. Before that, the Cowboys seemingly took control with a 65-yard drive Romo capped with his second touchdown pass to Witten. The drive continued because of a roughingthe-passer penalty against Mathias Kiwanuka on a play that Beasley fumbled after a catch at the Giants 20 and New York recovered.

Rihanna honored with Icon Award By Chris Talbott

The Associated Press

Rihanna and her mother took center stage at the American Music Awards as the singer received the first Icon Award. Monica Braithwaite presented her pop star daughter with the award midway through Sunday night’s show at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. “Can we talk about how cute Rihanna’s mom is?” Justin Timberlake asked while accepting one of his three awards, before affecting a Caribbean accent. “She’s so proud of the Icon. I am too, Rihanna, I love you.” Braithwaite told Rihanna how proud she was of her daughter’s success, saying, “I know the journey in your career has not always been an easy one.” “Just about 20 years ago is when I really started making your life a living hell with my annoying little husky man voice, you would call it,” Rihanna said. “And I mean just disrupting the entire neighborhood. Westbury Road, Barbados, they could tell you that’s the truth. I annoyed every one of my neighbors.” Rihanna was one of the night’s early competitive winners as well. She took favorite soul/R&B female artist. Timberlake won soul/R&B album, soul/R&B male artist and pop/rock male artist and was tied with Taylor Swift, who won favorite country female artist and country album of the year for Red, as well as Artist of the Year. “Red is very different than any album I’ve made before, and the reason I was able to do that was because of the fans,” Swift said. “I cannot believe what you’ve done in the last year. This album came out almost exactly a year ago and the fact that 6 million of you went out and bought it is crazy.” Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande was named favorite new artist, Florida Georgia Line won single of the year for “Cruise” with Nelly, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis used their rap/hip-hop album acceptance speech to send a message of tolerance. Ben Haggerty, the rapper known as Macklemore, accepted the award for favorite rap/hip-hop album, then quoted Martin Luther King Jr. in a live satellite feed from the rap group’s latest tour stop. “Due to the fact that we are in Florida tonight accepting this award, I want to acknowledge Trayvon Martin and the hundreds and hundreds of kids each year that are dying due to racial profiling and the violence that follows it,” he said. “This is really happening. These are our friends, our neighbors, our peers and our fans, and it’s time that we look out for the youth and fight against racism and the laws that protect it.” Florida became a focal point after Martin’s killer was freed under the state’s stand your ground law. It was the first win of the night for Macklemore and Lewis, whose album The Heist has been an unexpected hit and made them the AMA’s top nominees with six. Katy Perry opened the show looking like a princess out of a classic Japanese painting. Dressed in a traditional Japanese dress, Perry’s show-starting performance of “Unconditionally” included dozens of colorfully clad dancers waved fans, shadow danced in front of rice-paper screens and played the drums.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HH No one needs to tell you that it’s Monday — you know by the way you feel. Stay out of the problems around you; instead, focus on accomplishing one task after another. Tonight: Play it low-key.

Father is tired of negative comments Dear Annie: My wife and I have been separated for four years. We have joint custody of our beautiful 8-year-old daughter. “Lizzie” spends half the week with me and the other half with her mother. It works out well, and Lizzie fully understands that she now has to live in two separate, loving homes. Here’s the problem: When going to gatherings and parties, my mother’s friends and other family members feel the need to say, “It’s so nice that you guys share her right now, because when she gets older, you know she’s going to want to live with her mom full time.” Or, “What are you going to do when she’s a teenager and only wants to stay with her mom?” They then begin to tell me stories about their divorced son or a friend’s son to whom this has happened. My daughter means the world to me. Just because things didn’t work out between her mother and me doesn’t mean I won’t be able to provide as loving a home as her mother. How do I politely tell these people that I don’t care for their comments? Or do I just bite my lip and stay silent? — Doing My Best in California Dear California: You sigh audibly and say with a tired smile, “Yes, I’ve heard that. Thank you.” And then walk away. These people mean well, but they have no way of predicting what your situation will be five years from now. Here’s ours: Lizzie will cherish both of her parents because they cherish her enough to be respectful of each other and keep both of her homes stable and loving. Whatever she chooses to do as a teenager will likely be temporary. Dear Annie: I hope you can help me with an unusual request. I am a very heavyset female, and there are some parts of my body that I can’t reach to wash. Because of that, I have an odor that I hope no one else can smell, but I’m not sure. Is there any

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Keep reaching out for a new solution. It is out there for you to find; you just haven’t hit upon it yet. Detach and refuse to feel pushed. Tonight: Find your friends. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH A loved one might mean well, but you will have a difficult time believing that when you see what is going on behind the scenes. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Your intentions are good, but your actions just might create more of a fog around an already unclear situation. Make a point to detach.

Hocus Focus

place where I could get these private parts shaved? I am sure that would help a lot. — Ms. Bit Dear Ms. Bit: You would have to ask at a salon whether they would shave you. You might have better luck with a bikini wax. For permanent hair removal, you can check into laser therapy or electrolysis, although both require multiple treatments and are not inexpensive. In the meantime, look into installing a handheld shower sprayer and check online for easily available hygiene products geared toward those hardto-reach places. But also, please talk to your doctor about your weight and see whether you have a treatable medical condition, and ask for a referral to a dietician. Dear Annie: I was appalled that you published the letter from “California” and didn’t comment on it. She suggested that lesbians target older women to take possession of their assets. Certainly there are lesbians who are grifters, but the writer made it sound as if this is the rule rather than the exception, and you failed to disabuse her of her misconception. You did a serious disservice to your readers by not pointing out that there are bad eggs in every basket, but one bad egg doesn’t mean the entire batch is tainted. — A Good Egg Dear Good Egg: You are right. We should have clarified that the point of “California’s” letter was not to disparage lesbians, but to warn seniors that they can be the victims of con artists, whether gay, straight, male, female, young, old or anything else. Con artists often target older adults. Please, folks, be careful, never bring strangers into your home, and never give out financial information or your social security number over the phone.
