Lawmakers set to revamp criminal code Bipartisan effort strives to fix outdated, inconsistent laws By Steve Terrell The New Mexican

For the first time in decades, the Legislature is preparing to tackle a complete rewrite of the criminal code, a job expected to take two years. Both Democrats and Republicans agree that the laws — amended piecemeal over the years — are inconsistent, sometimes impose unfair penalties and should provide for more diversion programs, drug courts and GPS monitoring to keep nonviolent offenders out of prison. A bipartisan group of eight legislators — led by two former prosecutors — will soon begin the task. While issues of crime and punishment often can be bitterly divisive and break along party lines, in this effort, lawmakers from both sides of the aisle seem to have found common ground. Democratic

Plan to extend protection of wolves in N.M. raises hackles By Julie Cart

Los Angeles Times

ALBUQUERQUE — In the small, rural community of Reserve, children waiting for the school bus gather inside wooden and mesh cages provided as protection from wolves. Parents consider the “kid cages” a reasonable precaution. Defenders of the wolves note there have been no documented wolf attacks in New Mexico or Arizona. Fears of wolves attacking humans, they say, are overblown and the cages nothing more than a stunt. In 1995, the reintroduction of Canadian gray wolves into the Northern Rockies ignited a furor. Now that acrimony has cascaded into the Southwest, where the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposes to extend Endangered Species Act protections for an estimated 75 Mexican wolves in the wild in New Mexico and Arizona.

hen a family of Hollywood producers came to Santa Fe asking for public funding to build a film studio in 2008, state and local officials rolled out the red carpet. Over the next two years, the project received $20 million in public incentives, including a $10 million state economic development grant created by a legislative appropriation pushed through by then-Gov. Bill Richardson. He had known the filmmakers — brothers Lance and Conrad Hool — since their days playing Little League baseball together in Mexico City. Santa Fe County sold the brothers a piece of land in a specially created media district for them to build the studio, and it supplied the plot with about $3.6 million worth of high-speed Internet connections, road improvements and water. The county also agreed to guarantee a $6.5 million construction loan to the Hools for the endeavor. Five years later, studio and county officials are calling the project a success, saying it is on track to meet the job-creation goals that were a requirement of all the public subsidies it received. Among the major productions that have been shot there are the 2013 comedy We’re the Millers, starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis. But it may be too soon to pop the

Champagne cork. A closer examination of the studio’s numbers and the government’s less-than-stringent protocols for verifying them indicate the studio still has a lot to accomplish before taxpayers can be assured they’ll see a return on their investment. In 2011, the first phase of Santa Fe Studios was completed on a 65-acre tract of land off N.M. 14 south of the city. The state-of-the-art development includes two 20,000-square-foot sound stages, with ceilings high enough to allow an airplane to be suspended inside, as well as office suites, hair and makeup facilities, and a

4,600-square-foot “mill” building, where sets are constructed. In exchange for the public backing, the Hool brothers and Lance Hool’s son, Jason Hool, agreed to train a local workforce and provide 500,000 hours of above-minimumwage jobs within six years. According to Santa Fe County — which is charged with tracking the job-creation requirements in the deal — the studio has created about 200,000 job hours, or just under half of those required.

NATION&WORLD In brief Officials: 2 French journalists killed in Mali DAKAR, Senegal — Gunmen abducted and killed two French radio journalists on assignment in northern Mali, French and Malian officials said. It was not immediately clear who carried out the killings, though suspicion quickly fell on al-Qaida’s branch in the region. Ghislaine Dupont and Claude Verlon of Radio France Internationale were grabbed Saturday in the city of Kidal by armed men in an SUV just after finishing an interview with the acting head of the rebel National Movement for the Liberation of the Azawad, or NMLA, officials said. Their bodies were dumped a dozen miles outside the town. Their throats had been slit, according to a witness. French President Francois Hollande expressed his “indignation at this odious act.” It comes less than a week after France rejoiced at the release of four of its citizens, who were freed by al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb after a three-year-long captivity, allegedly in exchange for a hefty ransom. Suspicion also fell Saturday on the NMLA, the Tuareg separatist movement whose rebels invaded northern Mali last year, alongside the al-Qaida fighters. The NMLA later fell out with al-Qaida and was chased out of much of northern Mali, with the exception of Kidal.

Sen. Schumer endorses Clinton for president DES MOINES, Iowa — Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York is urging his former Senate colleague, Hillary Rodham Clinton, to run for president. In fact, he’s already endorsing her. Schumer, the third-ranking Democratic member of the Senate, endorsed the former secretary of state during the party’s annual Jefferson Jackson dinner, joining a chorus of Democrats calling on Clinton to run again. In remarks to the crowd of 750 Democratic supporters, he said that with Clinton, the party can “vanquish the Ted Cruz, tea party Republicans in 2016.” “It’s time for a woman to be president,” Schumer said as people rose to their feet with enthusiastic applause. He said that “Hillary’s experience is unrivaled and her vision is unparalleled.” Clinton aides did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the remarks. Polls show that Clinton would be the lead-

Kidnap survivor sits down with Dr. Phil CLEVELAND — One of three women who escaped from a ramshackle Cleveland home after more than a decade in captivity is about to share her story. Michelle Knight will appear on the Dr. Phil show Tuesday and Wednesday in a taped interview. The show says Knight “describes the horrible conditions in the house” and discusses her physical, mental and sexual abuse. That includes “being tied up like a fish” and spending weeks chained and tortured in the basement, according to the show. Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus escaped May 6 when Berry pushed out a door and yelled for help. Their kidnapper, Ariel Castro, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in prison. He hanged himself Sept. 3. On Dr. Phil, Knight also will discuss how she was able to survive her ordeal. She was

20 years old when she was kidnapped in August 2002. Phil McGraw said he found Knight “very bright, well-spoken and eager” to have her own voice after suffering years of abuse.

30 suspected militants killed in Somalia NAIROBI, Kenya — Thirty suspected members of the Islamist militia al-Shabaab were killed Saturday by Kenyan and Somali soldiers on the Somali side of the border between the two countries, the Kenya Defense Force said. One Somali soldier was injured during the ambush near Kolbio, Col. Cyrus Oguna said. The joint operation came a few days after two suspected members of the al-Qaidalinked al-Shabaab were killed in an airstrike, also in southern Somalia, although the source of the missile remained unknown. African Union peacekeepers in Somalia and Kenyan troops have stepped up their offensive against al-Shabaab since its attack in September on a Nairobi shopping mall. Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for that attack, saying it was retaliating for Kenya sending troops to aid the peacekeepers in their battle against the militants. New Mexican wire services

Study: Babies remember tunes from the womb By Meeri Kim

Special to The Washington Post

Babies who had a lullaby played to them regularly while still in the womb recognized the song months after birth, a study has found. The researchers had 10 expectant mothers play “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” loudly multiple times per week throughout their last trimester of pregnancy. A few days after birth, they took electroencephalogram, or EEG, record-

ings of each newborn’s brain by using 12 electrodes scattered over different regions of the head. Upon hearing the lullaby again, they had significantly larger brain responses than a control group of newborns who had not been exposed to the song. The experiment was repeated after four months with similar results. Study co-author and University of Helsinki psychologist Minna Huotilainen refers to this phenomenon as “preconscious learning.” The babies have no

awareness of it — no “Oh, that old song from my intrauterine days” — but somehow their brains can still pick up on the fact that they have heard it before. “They recognize the memory, and their brains react to it,” said study co-author Eino Partanen, also a University of Helsinki psychologist. “But do we mean memory like how we have in adults? No. This is more like familiarity.” Also, the scientists found that the more times a mother played the recording for her unborn child,

the stronger the electrical signal from the baby’s brain would be. When the researchers played a modified version of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,” the babies seemed to notice when that was amiss. The EEG was fast enough to catch note-by-note neural responses, and when a wrong note was played, their brains would react differently. The study was published online Wednesday in the journal PLOS One.

BEIRUT — In the midst of a conflict rife with sectarianism, a giant bronze statue of Jesus has gone up on a Syrian mountain, apparently under cover of a truce among three factions in the country’s civil war. Jesus stands, arms outstretched, on the Cherubim mountain, overlooking a route pilgrims took from Constantinople to Jerusalem in ancient times. The statue is 40 feet tall and stands on a base that brings its height to 105 feet, organizers of the project estimate. That the statue made it to Syria and went up without incident on Oct. 14 is remarkable. The project took eight years and was set back by the civil war that followed the March 2011 uprising against President Bashar Assad. Christians and other minorities are all targets in the conflict, and the statue’s safety is by no means guaranteed. It stands among villages where some fighters, linked to al-Qaida, have little sympathy for Christians. So why put up a giant statue of Christ in the midst of such setbacks and so much danger? Because “Jesus would have done it,” organizer Samir al-Ghadban quoted a Christian church leader as telling him. The backers’ success in overcoming the obstacles shows the complexity of civil war, where sometimes despite the atrocities the warring parties can reach short-term truces. Al-Ghadban said the main armed groups in the area — Syrian government forces, rebels and the local militias of Sednaya, the Christian town near the statue site — halted fire while organizers set up the statue, without providing further details. Rebels and government forces occasionally agree to cease-fires to allow the movement of goods. They typically do not admit to having truces because that would tacitly acknowledge their enemies. It took three days to raise the statue. Photos provided by organizers show it being hauled in two pieces by farm tractors, then lifted into place by a crane. Smaller statues of Adam and Eve stand nearby. The project, called “I Have Come to Save the World,” is run by the London-based St. Paul and St. George Foundation, which Al-Ghadban directs. It was previously named the Gavrilov Foundation, after a Russian businessman, Yuri Gavrilov. Al-Ghadban said most of the financing came from private donors, but did not supply further details. Russians have been a driving force behind the project. Al-Ghadban said he began the project in 2005, hoping the statue would be an inspiration for Syria’s Christians. He said he was inspired by Rio de Janeiro’s towering Christ the Redeemer statue. He commissioned an Armenian sculptor, but progress was slow. By 2012, the statue was ready, but Syria was aflame, causing the project’s biggest delay, al-Ghadban said. They began shipping the statue from Armenia to Lebanon. In August, while it was en route, Gavrilov, 49, suffered a fatal heart attack, al-Ghadban said. Eventually the statue reached Syria. “It was a miracle,” al-Ghadban said. “Nobody who participated in this expected this to succeed.”

LAX suspect set out to kill, scare TSA officers Transportation Security Administration officer Gerardo Hernandez, 39, who was shot to death Friday at Los Angeles International Airport, was the first TSA official in the agency’s 12-year history to be killed in the line of duty. He and his widow, Ana Hernandez, have two children.

By Tami Abdollah The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — The unemployed motorcycle mechanic suspected of carrying out the deadly shooting at the Los Angeles airport set out to kill multiple employees of the Transportation Security Administration and hoped the attack would “instill fear in their traitorous minds,” authorities said Saturday. Paul Ciancia was so determined to take lives that, after shooting a TSA officer and going up an escalator, he turned back to see the officer move and returned to fire on him again, killing him, according to surveillance video reviewed by the FBI. In a news conference announcing charges against Ciancia, U.S. Attorney Andre Birotte Jr. spelled out a chilling chain of events inside LAX that began when Ciancia strode into Terminal 3, pulled a Smith & Wesson .223-caliber assault rifle out of his duffel bag and fired repeatedly at point-blank range at a TSA officer who was checking IDs and boarding passes at the base of an escalator leading to the main screening area. After killing that officer, Ciancia fired on at least two other uniformed TSA employees and a civilian airline passenger, who were all wounded. Airport police eventually shot him as panicked passengers cowered in stores and restaurants. Ciancia’s duffel bag contained a handwritten letter signed by Ciancia stating he’d “made the conscious decision to try to kill” multiple TSA employees and that he wanted to stir fear in

them, said FBI Special Agent in Charge David L. Bowdich. The bag also had five magazines of ammunition. Federal prosecutors filed charges of first-degree murder and commission of violence at an international airport against Ciancia. The charges could qualify him for the death penalty. The FBI was still looking into his past but said they had not found evidence of past crimes or any run-ins with the TSA. They said he had never applied for a job with the TSA. Authorities believe someone dropped Ciancia off at the airport. Agents are reviewing surveillance tapes to piece together the exact sequence of events, he said. “We are really going to draw a picture of who this person was, his background, his history. That will help us explain why he chose to do what he did,” Bowdich said. “At this point, I don’t have the answer on that.” The note found in the duffel bag suggested Ciancia was willing to kill almost any TSA officer. “Black, white, yellow, brown, I don’t discriminate,” the note read, according to a paraphrase by a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was

not authorized to speak publicly. The suspect’s screed also mentioned “fiat currency” and “NWO,” possible references to the New World Order, a conspiracy theory that foresees a totalitarian one-world government. Terminal 3, the area where the shooting happened, reopened Saturday. Passengers who had abandoned luggage to escape Friday’s gunfire were allowed to return to collect their bags. The TSA planned to review its security policies in the wake of the shooting. Administrator John Pistole did not say if that meant arming officers. As airport operations returned to normal, a few more details trickled out about Ciancia, who by all accounts was reserved and solitary. Former classmates barely remember him, and even a recent roommate could say little about the young man who moved from New Jersey to Los Angeles less than two years ago. A former classmate at Salesianum School in Wilmington, Del., said Ciancia was incredibly quiet. “He kept to himself and ate lunch alone a lot,” David Hamilton told the Los Angeles Times. “I really don’t remember any one person who was close to him. ... In four years, I never heard a word out of his mouth.”

Pakistan: U.S. killing of Taliban leader hurts domestic peace talks By Ishtiaq Mahsud and Rebecca Santana The Associated Press

ISLAMABAD — The Pakistani government Saturday accused the U.S. of sabotaging peace talks with domestic Taliban fighters by killing their leader in a drone strike, as the militants began the process of choosing a successor. The rise in tension, even though the U.S. took out Pakistan’s No. 1 enemy, shows just how complicated the relationship between the professed allies can be. The two repeatedly have clashed over issues such as drone strikes and Pakistan’s alleged support for militants fighting U.S. troops in neighboring Afghanistan. The Pakistani Taliban leader slain Friday, Hakimullah Mehsud, was a ruthless figure known for a deadly attack on a CIA base in Afghanistan and a bloody campaign that killed thousands of Pakistani civilians and security personnel. The Pakistani army has launched numerous operations in the country’s northwest in a failed attempt to subdue the group, which aims to topple Pakistan’s democratic system and impose a harsh version of

Islamic law. It also seeks an end to the country’s unpopular alliance with the U.S. Pakistan’s government, which took office in June, has pushed peace talks with the Taliban as the best way to end the conflict, though many people are skeptical a deal is possible. The drone strike that killed Mehsud in the North Waziristan tribal area came a day before the government was to send a three-member delegation of clerics to the region with a formal invitation to start peace talks, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said. It never ended up going. Khan called the drone attack “murder” to the peace effort, but hoped the process could continue. He said he warned the U.S. ambassador previously that American drone strikes should not be carried out while Pakistan was trying to hold peace talks and no Taliban leader should be targeted. The government later summoned the U.S. ambassador to complain. When asked whether he thought the U.S. was trying to deliberately scuttle the peace process, the minister responded: “Absolutely.” “The efforts have been ambushed,” the minister said.

He did not say what he felt the U.S. stood to gain but questioned: “Why do they want us to be insecure?” Another prominent political leader, Imran Khan, whose party controls the government in northwest Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, threatened to block trucks carrying supplies to NATO troops in Afghanistan over the strike. He said he would push the provincial assembly to adopt a resolution to block the supplies and would do the same nationally. “Dialogue has been broken with this drone attack,” Imran Khan said. The interior minister said as soon as Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif returns from abroad, a national security meeting will be convened to discuss U.S.-Pakistan relations and cooperation. He would not specifically address the threatened supply lines closure. Azam Tariq, the Pakistani Taliban spokesman in the South Waziristan tribal area, provided the first official confirmation of Mehsud’s death Saturday. “We are proud of the martyrdom of Hakimullah Mehsud,” Tariq told The Associated Press by telephone. “We will continue our activities.”

Part: Studio has until October 2016 to achieve job-creation goals Continued from Page A-1 The agreements that govern the deal were signed in 2010. The Hools’ job-creation goals are due to be completed in October 2016. With four years left to go before the agreement is supposed to be filled, Conrad Hool said he’s confident Santa Fe Studios will be able to hold up its end of the bargain. He acknowledged the studio had a slow start — caused in part by incoming Gov. Susana Martinez announcing she would re-examine incentives for film productions in 2011. The possibility that the tax incentives could be slashed “threw cold water” on the New Mexico film industry for a while, said Eric Witt, Richardson’s former deputy chief of staff and film adviser. But in the end, said New Mexico Film Office Director Nick Maniatis, the changes to the tax incentives were minor, and filmmakers returned to the Land of Enchantment. Actor, director and producer Seth MacFarlane — creator of the animated television series Family Guy and American Dad — shot two productions at Santa Fe Studios this summer. One, A Million Ways to Die in the West, a feature-length comedy starring MacFarlane and Charlize Theron, is slated to be released in 2014. The other, a pilot for a documentary series called Cosmos, based on the popular 1980s series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, hosted by Carl Sagan, could return for a long-term engagement. “We couldn’t get it going at first,” Conrad Hool said. “It was a scary time. But now it looks great. We really have high hopes.” In fact, Hool said, the facility was so busy this summer that the partners are eager to start the second phase of the project, which includes two more large sound stages and an additional ancillary building. Hool said the partners do not plan to seek public funding for the expansion, which he estimated will cost about $15 million.

Deals come with complex calculations Despite the Hools’ forward-looking optimism, the studio still has significant job-creation goals to meet and still owes more than $6 million on the private loan for the first phase of the project. Attempts to forecast the future performance of the project and the likelihood that it will meet its goals within the allotted time frame are complicated by the numerous agreements that were created between the Hools and the government entities that subsidized the project. According to information provided by Santa Fe County, construction hours can be counted among the job requirements contained in the county’s land agreement with the Hools, but they cannot be counted among the hours required by the state’s $10 million Local Economic Development Act grant. On the other hand, “off-site” hours — jobs created when a production is based at the studio but doesn’t shoot there — can be counted toward the goals required in the state grant, but they are not counted toward the goals in the county land agreement. According to data provided by Santa Fe County, the jobs that apply to the land deal totaled 200,498 as of Oct. 16, and the hours that could be counted toward the state grant totaled 215,943. The first figure includes 125,000 worth of construction jobs. The second includes 133,000 hours of off-site jobs. Verification of the job numbers has been less than vigorous. County officials appear to have accepted the hours reported by the studios as fact

and have done little to substantiate them. And the state says it has not received official reports on the project since construction ended, nor does it appear that there is any requirement for the studio to report to the state past that date.

Impact on film industry underestimated? New Mexico Economic Development Secretary Jon Barela said he would not approve such a deal if it came before him today. “For $10 million, there is some question about the required 500,000 hours of jobs,” Barela said in a recent interview. By his estimation, that equals about 240 jobs over six years. “The big question is: Is that a good investment? That’s a lot of money for 240 jobs.” Meanwhile, the heads of the state film office and the union that represents film workers say the job hours the studio has reported are vastly understated. Labor leader Jon Hendry, president of the New Mexico Federation of Labor and a business agent for the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 480, said the studio project has had a “huge, enormous life-changing” impact on the film union’s 11,000 members. In the last six months alone, Hendry estimated, IATSE members — including light, sound, hair and makeup, and special effects workers — earned about $6.2 million working on projects based at Santa Fe Studios. Divided by an average wage of $25 an hour, Hendry said, that would mean the workers logged about 248,000 hours since April 2013. And that doesn’t count writers, camera operators, actors, extras, teamsters or security guards. New Mexico Film Office Director Nick Maniatis offered another estimate of how many job hours are being created at the studio, based on anecdotal evidence. According to him, the four most recent productions shot at Santa Fe

Studios reported a combined 57,400 “labor days,” or about 459,200 work hours. Even that number could be low because labor days in the film industry are often 12 to 16 hours long. Such widely varying statistics makes it hard to pinpoint the studio’s progress toward its job goals. Maniatis said more specific numbers are available from the state Taxation and Revenue Department — because productions submit data to the department to receive tax rebates — but a request for that information filed with that agency Monday had not been answered as of Friday. To further confuse matters, Hool and County Attorney Steve Ross said there is a significant lag time between when the work is performed and when reporting is completed, meaning current numbers don’t reflect recent activity at the facility. That would suggest the studio is doing better than even its owners say, which would have bearing on how quickly they would have to repay their loan obligations. The agreement, which relates to the $2.6 million piece of property the studio bought from the county, requires the Hools to make payments gradually as the number of job hours increases. Every time the studio reports 100,000 job hours, it is required to make a payment of $524,000 on the land. That agreement allows the studio to count the jobs created during construction, but not off-site hours created by productions that shoot elsewhere. The studio has made two payments toward the land debt, one in October 2011, shortly after the building was completed, and another just last month. In order to keep on track with the agreement, the studio will have to make three more $524,000 payments between now and Dec. 14, 2015, when the entire amount is due. The studio also still owes about $6.2 million on a $6.5 million construction loan it obtained from Los Alamos National Bank to build the facility. That loan is guaranteed by $6.5 million from Santa Fe County, which is being held in a “lockbox” and will gradually

be released as the original note is paid down. Conrad Hool said Friday that after the studio makes its November payment on the loan, it will have paid $260,000 of the principal. Quarterly and annual reports submitted by Santa Fe Studios to Santa Fe County — and annual reviews the county is obligated to perform — were requested Oct. 22, but also had not been produced as of Friday.

Political favoritism and risk to taxpayers Fred Nathan, the executive director of Think New Mexico, said the Santa Fe Studios project is a perfect example of the need for New Mexico to reexamine the way economic development funds are disbursed to remove political favoritism from the equation and guarantee results. The think tank — which recently released a report that dinged Santa Fe Studios’ jobcreation figures and was disputed by the Hools — advocates for the creation of post-job-creation incentives. “While post-performance incentives are only provided after performance has been documented,” Nathan wrote in an email to The New Mexican, “preperformance incentives lack that safeguard. New Mexico’s state and local governments do not appear to have a system in place to audit whether pre-performance benchmarks have been met; rather it seems to be done unevenly on a case by case basis. For example, in the case of Santa Fe Studios, will there be an independent, third party evaluation of whether the company has met the benchmarks that it agreed to?” When asked in writing whether Santa Fe County verifies the jobcreation data submitted by the studios, county spokeswoman Kristine Mihelcic replied: “The Economic Development position (which until March had been vacant for about a year) periodically meets with staff from the studios to discuss the delivery of hours and the methodology, by which hours are reported.” David Grisham, who filled the posi-

tion in March and said he is still coming up to speed on the “complicated” project, said there has been discussion this week about instituting more robust methods of authenticating the job claims. Barela, the state economic development secretary, said that while the studio project probably would not have been funded in the current administration, given that the project was approved, “We’ll try to make the best of it.” Barela said there are several reasons he would not have greenlighted the deal shepherded in by Richardson. One, he said, is the amount of the incentive. “It was a very rich contribution to this one entity,” Barela said, noting that the $10 million Economic Development Grant represents about three times the $3.3 million his department has been allocated for all such incentives since he took office in 2011. Barela said there also are very few “clawbacks” included in the deal that would protect the public’s investment in the event of a default. And, he said, the requirements that are incorporated into the deal are written in such a way that they are “subject to interpretation.” This gives the agreements very little teeth. Barela said he’s since created administrative rules and legislation that would keep such vague agreements from being approved in the future. Indeed, if the Hools do default on their agreements, it is Santa Fe County taxpayers who will be left holding the bag. According to the terms of the various agreements, if the Hools default, Santa Fe County will be given a “reasonable amount of time” to fulfill the job-creation goals of the project by running the studio itself. If it is unable to do so, the agreements state, the county will be obliged to liquidate whatever assets it can in order to repay the state a prorated fraction of the $10 million (the county would be given credit for its infrastructure expenditures and the portion of jobs the studios had created). The county is not obligated to repay the loan with proceeds from any other source besides studio assets. If that happened, the county would reclaim ownership of the land where the studio sits, but it would still be responsible for guaranteeing the studio’s loan from Los Alamos National Bank. Payments for that note would be debited from the $6.5 million posted as collateral on the project, in increments of no more than $900,000 per year. Everyone involved is hoping that doesn’t happen. “Everybody’s hope is that [the project] is successful and many jobs are created,” Barela said. “Nobody wants to see a loss of taxpayer money, regardless of how the deal was consummated.” Maniatis said the outlook for the film industry in New Mexico is good. “I usually say I’m cautiously optimistic,” Maniatis said Thursday. “But actually, I’m very optimistic. Time will tell. We can’t control the market and what happens. We are beholden to the vagaries of business like any industry, but as far as our strengths — ability to provide crew and facilities — we are one of the best.” Contact Phaedra Haywood at 986-3068 or

Local media reports suggest at least some were built by students in a high school shop class. Calls to the superintendent of schools in Reserve were not returned.

Codes: Many obsolete laws on state’s books Continued from Page A-1 and Republican legislators interviewed last week said in some cases, criminal penalties should be increased. But in general, they said, the state should change its long-held attitude that the best way to fight the crime problem is jailing more criminals, adding more crimes to the books and spending more to build prisons. “We’re pouring millions of dollars into criminal justice in New Mexico, and it’s not working,” said Sen. Lisa Torroco, R-Albuquerque. Torroco, a freshman lawmaker who has worked as a prosecutor, a criminal defense lawyer and a professor of criminal law at The University of New Mexico, co-chairs the recently appointed subcommittee. “Something’s broken, and we just keep throwing money at it. And we’re still not safe,” she said. “I’m not advocating this as a ‘get-tough-on-crime’ Republican,” Torroco said. “I’m a getsmart-on-crime Republican.” House Democratic Whip Antonio “Moe” Maestas of Albuquerque, the other cochairperson, agrees. “This is long overdue,” he said Wednesday. Some of the goals of the subcommittee: keeping nonviolent offenders out of prison; making sure prisons emphasize rehabilitation and decreasing recidivism; ensuring criminal penalties are more equitable for various types of offenses; giving more consideration to crime victims; and increasing the system’s use of diversion programs, drug courts and GPS monitoring systems. Both lawmakers, as well as another subcommittee member, Sen. Cisco McSorley, D-Albuquerque, cited a big problem: For years, the Legislature has dealt with criminal laws on a piecemeal basis, increasing penalties for certain crimes following a highly publicized incident. Torroco said the need for a revamp of criminal penalties occurred to her in the last legislative session, when she realized that an animal cruelty bill, which she backed, had greater penalties than those given to child abusers. Maestas said, ideally, homicide should have the worst penalties, and lesser crimes should have lesser sentences. That isn’t always the case. While first-degree murder has the highest maximum penalty — life in prison without possibility of parole — Maestas said most homicide cases end with a second-degree murder conviction, which has a maximum sentence of just 15 years. And aggravated battery — inflicting great bodily harm or injuring someone with a deadly weapon — has a maximum sentence of only three years in prison. Meanwhile, Maestas said, a drug trafficker convicted of a second offense can get up to 18 years in prison. He said he believes there should be harsher penalties for second-degree murders and a

new category for more severe cases of aggravated battery. Another problem, Torroco noted, is that New Mexico has many petty misdemeanors on the books that might seem obsolete or just plain silly. For instance, there’s a law against spitting on a building. Another New Mexico statute prohibits “improper use of official anthems” in public. While such laws rarely are enforced, in theory, someone singing an irreverent version of “The Star Spangled Banner” or spitting on a building could serve more time than a first-time drunken-driving offender, Torroco said. She said these crimes should be taken off the books. Crafting prison-reform legislation will be an important part of the subcommittee’s task, Torroco said. “We can’t just keep throwing people into prison,” she said, adding that prisons should be for violent offenders. Steve Allen, policy director of the New Mexico chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, said Wednesday that taking a comprehensive approach to update the criminal code is a positive step. “Half the bills we monitor are those trying to increase criminal penalties and fines,” he said. “That’s not the best way to approach criminal law.” Torroco and Maestas, as well as McSorley — one of the most liberal members of the Legislature — all say they were inspired by ideas promoted on a conservative website called, as well as criminal justice reforms that have taken place in the state of Texas. “In Texas, it was a truly bipartisan effort,” McSorley said. “They cut the crime rate and have closed two prisons.”

“It’s the red states where you’ve seen some of the most progress in reform,” Maestas said. “I think Republicans have more political cover.” He noted that many Democrats are afraid of being painted as “soft on crime.” The site, which is a project of a conservative think tank called the Texas Public Policy Foundation, has a “Statement of Principles” that includes many of the ideas the subcommittee will be discussing. “Conservatives are known for being tough on crime, but we must also be tough on criminal justice spending,” the statement says. “That means demanding more cost-effective approaches that enhance public safety. “ In regard to prisons, the statement says something many liberals could embrace. Prisons, the statement says, “are not the solution for every type of offender. And in some instances, they have the unintended consequence of hardening nonviolent, lowrisk offenders — making them a greater risk to the public than when they entered.” The website endorses private prisons — which many Democrats oppose — but says private prison contracts should include incentives for lowering recidivism “and the flexibility to innovate.” Those who have signed the statement of principles include former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Americans for Tax Reform leader Grover Norquist. Two New Mexican conservatives are among the signatories, former Attorney General Hal Stratton and Rio Grande Foundation President Paul Gessing. The subcommittee is expected to schedule its first meeting in

No. 1 cause, the scientists say. But a warmer world, with bursts of heavy rain and prolonged drought, will worsen some of these existing effects, they say. For example, in disease, the report says until about 2050, “climate change will impact human health mainly by exacerbating health problems that already exist” and then it will lead to worse health compared to a future with no futher warming. If emissions of carbon dioxide from the burning of coal, oil and gas continue at current trajectories, “the combination of high temperature and humidity in some areas for parts of the year will compromise normal human activities including growing food or working outdoors,” the report says. One of the more controversial sections of the report involves climate change and war. “Climate change indirectly increases risks from violent conflict in the form of civil war, inter-group violence and violent protests by exacerbating well-established drivers of these conflicts such as poverty and economic shocks,” the report says.

NEW YORK — Local gasoline prices are swinging up and down ever more drastically, a result of a national fuel system that is operating with a shrinking margin for error. Jumps of 20 cents per gallon or more in a single day are becoming more common, for example, according to an AP analysis of daily and weekly price changes at 120,000 U.S. gasoline stations tracked by Sixty-three times this year at least one U.S. metro area has seen such a change. Like the 24-cent increase Decatur, Ill., drivers saw on Jan. 26, or the 24-cent increase in Superior, Wis., on April 30 and the 28-cent increase in Henderson, Ky., on Sept. 19. Not since 2008 have there been so many 20-cent changes. Last year those happened 58 times. In 2011 they happened just 21 times, and in 2010 just 7 times. “There’s more and more feast or famine,” says Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at the Oil Price Information Service and The problem, analysts say, is a fuel system increasingly vulnerable to short-term shocks. That’s because refiners try to keep stocks of gasoline low to save money, just as other manufacturers aim to operate on a “just-in-time” inventory schedule. The nation has about 26 days’ worth of gasoline demand in storage, compared with 30 to 40 days’ worth during much of the 1980s and 1990s, according to the Energy Department. Also, there are 143 operating refineries, about half the total from 1980, so, if one has a problem, supplies quickly drop. That price whiplash has a cost. Spikes in gasoline prices are more damaging to the economy than a slow rise in prices because they undermine con-

sumer confidence, economists say. Drivers may be pleasantly surprised when prices slide lower, like they have recently — the national average is at $3.28, its lowest level of the year. But they don’t know when the price might bounce back up, and increases are almost always sharper than decreases. That makes it harder to budget for the daily commute, or know whether dinner out or a new appliance will be affordable. These dramatic local price swings are happening despite relatively stable oil prices and a national average gasoline price that has hovered around $3.50 per gallon for three years. In 2008, the last time local prices were this volatile, oil spiked to $145 a barrel in July, then plunged below $40 in late December as the global financial crisis sent energy markets reeling. The national average gasoline price ranged from $1.62 to $4.11 a gallon.

Study: Pacific warming faster than it has in 10,000 years LOS ANGELES — Scientists have struggled to explain a recent slowdown in the rise of global surface temperatures while skeptics have seized on the 15-year lull to cast doubt on the science of climate change. A new study offers one explanation of where much of the heat trapped by greenhouse gas emissions is going: the ocean. Scientists found that parts of the Pacific Ocean are absorbing heat faster than they have

over the past 10,000 years. The results, published this past week in the journal Science, suggest seawater is capturing far more energy than previously thought, for now sparing land-dwellers some of the worst effects of climate change. The ocean’s heat content, which has been measured since the 1960s, accounts for about 90 percent of the earth’s warming, the study says, making it a more reliable indicator of

climate change than surface temperatures. “The ocean has a tremendous amount of heat capacity. It’s very slow and ponderous in responding to climate change and it’s always trying to catch up to changes that are occurring at the surface,” said Kevin Trenberth, a climate scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research who was not involved in the research.

20-cent price changes in a single day. On average, the price changes 5 cents there every day and 16 cents every week, the highest in the nation, according to Jim Brooks, who works at a Chrysler transmission plant in town, does his best to fill up elsewhere. “If I don’t have to buy gas in Kokomo, I don’t,” he said recently at Manjas Marathon station in Kokomo during a lunch break. He bought a soda and some chips, but not gasoline. Gas station owners set their prices based on how much it cost to buy the last shipment of wholesale gasoline, how much the next shipment will cost, and what competitors are doing. Stations typically make very little on gasoline, because they set the price as low as possible to attract people into their more profitable convenience stores. The price they pay for wholesale gasoline is determined by deals between refiners and distributors that are usually based on benchmarks set on exchanges, such as the New York Mercantile Exchange. When supplies are quick to rise or fall, it means more of what frustrates drivers: Gasoline prices that seem to jump around a few cents every time they fill up, for no rhyme or reason. This year, 57 U.S. metro areas have averaged price changes of at least a dime over a week. Last year, just 38 cities did, and in 2011 it was just 29 cities. Volatility is most pronounced in the four neighboring states of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky.

regular basis to ensure that its debut would go as flawlessly as possible. Sebelius, Obama and Co. have tried to explain that there still is time for the site to get straightened out. But you have to wonder: If the website is having trouble handling traffic now, how will it fare when traffic will spike? After all, in order for coverage to take effect by Jan. 1, applications have to be approved by Dec. 15 — less than six weeks from now. In addition, the entire system can only work if millions of “young invincibles” sign up (you need the young and healthy in the pool to subsidize the older and sicker). If a young person has been rebuffed after attempts to log onto, it’s easy to think those who have grown up buying things on Amazon with no problems will simply write off the clunky health care site, pay the $95 penalty for not signing up and move on with their lives. Things can change, but right now, Obamacare is in the intensive care unit — not because of its critics but because of its self-inflicted wounds.

hat industry had the most lobbyists working the New Mexico state Legislature this year? Was it the oil and gas industry, which is responsible for a huge portion of state revenues? Was it the big pharmaceutical companies? The liquor industry? Ranchers? Chile farmers? None of the above, actually. According to the study released last week by Common Cause New Mexico, the special interest that hired the largest number of lobbyists was government, including local and tribal governments as well as public educational agencies. The study found (based on information from the Secretary of State’s website and the Institute of Money in State Government) that there were 250 lobbyists hired by government agencies working the Roundhouse halls during the last session, which ended in March. Look at it this way: There are 112 legislators, so there were more than two government lobbyists for Steve Terrell every lawmaker. Roundhouse A close second for Roundup most lobbyists was the category of miscellaneous businesses, who hired 249 lobbyists, followed by ideological and single-issue groups (213); health care and pharmaceuticals (200); oil, gas and other energy interests (149); and finance, insurance and real-estate companies (130). In the past year-and-a-half — a time period that covers the last two sessions of the Legislature as well as the 2012 election — lobbyists plunked down more than $750,000 on food, drinks, entertainment and gifts for the public servants in the Legislature and spent more than $1.1 million on campaign contributions (including checks directly from their corporate bosses). The most generous lobbyists with campaign contributions, according to the report, were Dan Najjar, $89,950; Drew Setter, $75,696; Marla Shoats and Dan Weaks, $68,850; Fred O’Cheskey, $68,500; Mickey Barnett, $68,275; Stephen Perry, $61,500; and T.J. Trujillo, $56,237. But while lobbyists are undeniably influential — as I reported last week, Common Cause’s report suggests that lobbyists seemed to help kill several bills this year — the number of registered lobbyists actually went down this year. That’s the first time that’s happened at least since 2008, numbers in the report show. There were 673 registered lobbyists in this year’s session, the study said, down from the 744 who were registered in the 2012 session. It’s not clear what caused this decrease. The 2013 session was a 60-day session, which had more issues being discussed than in the 2012 session, which was a 30-day session dealing mostly with the state budget, so you might think. Viki Harrison, executive director of the state Common Cause chapter, said Thursday the decrease in lobbyists last year puzzled her also. Former state Sen. Dede Feldman, D-Albuquerque, one of the researchers for the report, said she wasn’t sure either, but guessed that one reason might be that some lobbyists have more clients than they used to. “I don’t remember client rosters as large as 20-plus in the past,” she said. According to the report, six lobbyists had 20 or more clients. These are Scott Scanland (24 clients), J.D. Bullington (23), Drew Setter (21), Brent Moore (20), Lawrence Horan (20) and Natasha Ning (20). Harrison told me there are 46 lobbyists who list eight or more clients. Personally, I don’t know how they keep all their clients straight, but several of these with big client lists are pros who have been in the game for years and years, so they apparently know what they’re doing. Common Cause also reported on family ties of some lobbyists. Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez’s brother, Raymond Sanchez (a former House speaker), is a lobbyist. So is Senate President Protem Mary Kay Papen’s daughter, Allison Smith. Rep. Kiki Saavedra’s sons, Mark Saavedra and Randy Saavedra, both are lobbyists, while House Majority Whip Moe Maestas’ wife, Vanessa Alarid, also lobbies. (She was doing that before she married Maestas.) Oh well, for years some legislators have said lobbyists are part of “the legislative family.” I guess in some cases, that’s literally true.

Look to GOP governors for answers


ecent letters have criticized congressional Republicans for the government shutdown. Ed Gillespie wrote an opinion piece in The Washington Post recently suggesting Republicans look to their elected governors for guidance. I agree. Gillespie notes that eight of the 10 best states for job creation listed by Forbes and nine of the 10 best states for business named by CNBC this summer have Republican governors. A perfect example is Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who challenged his state’s special interests. Walker eliminated a huge deficit, ended job losses, lowered health care costs for state employees and reduced property and income taxes. He recently touted his accomplishments on MSNBC’s Morning Joe while criticizing congressional Republicans. If you don’t believe Gov. Walker, compare the Wisconsin turnaround to Illinois. The latter, with its series of Democratic governors, is in serious financial trouble. John Greenspan

Sounding an alarm It is absolutely sickening to read time after time how the city is mismanaged. Again we hear about unwarranted raises given to employees without fair competitive processes. The personnel rules have long been hostage to dusty bookshelves. I served as human resource director during the terms of two honorable mayors: Art Trujillo and

Sam Pick. Never once did either ask me to hire or promote anyone. They also hired competent city managers such as Bill Sisneros, Suzanne Huebner, David Sena and Ike Pino, with whom I had the pleasure of working. The city was a well-run organization, because there were people with honor and integrity at the helm. Now we have non-elected, behind-the-scenes people running things. One of their minions was identified this week as helping start a political action committee to help retain control of the city mayorship. Citizens should be alarmed at these tactics. Let’s bring back honor and integrity. I see that future with Bill Dimas as mayor. JoAnne Vigil Coppler

Privatizing post offices Did anyone notice when the federal government shut down recently that we still got our mail and could still send packages off at the post offices? Does that give the nation a clue that the United States Postal Service is no longer a federal government agency, thanks to an action taken by Congress in 2006 — particularly those who want to privatize it?

Wrong on Senate I respectfully disagree with Paul Morrison in his opinion (My View: “U.S. should repeal 17th Amendment,” Oct. 6). He claims that direct election of senators by the state legislatures “protect[s] the states’ rights … [to] maintain a voice in the workings in the national government.” Mr. Morrison claims that direct election “removed much of control of government by the people” and that “senators would be beholden to the states for continued service.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Now, more control is in the hands of the people, and senators are more accountable to each state rather than a small coterie of state legislators. Senators were even “more beholden to their parties, special-interest lobbyists and other benefactors” when chosen by a select few. Remember, six states have only one representative who would bestow the gift of Senate service while five more have two representatives who would be empowered to do so.

Criminal code rewrite a welcome initiative


he rush to put people in prison — the legacy of the get-tough-on-crime 1980s and ’90s — might be coming to an end in the United States. In New Mexico, the move to reform criminal statutes and revise penalties apparently is being done as a joint venture between Republicans and Democrats in the Legislature. The state could see substantial reforms that aren’t a political battering ram despite these polarized times. Currently, eight legislators are beginning what surely will be an arduous process to update the state of New Mexico criminal code. The notion is to make the laws more sensible, to stop turning to jail time as the answer to every crime, to consider crime victims and to find ways where penalties better fit the crime, including diverting defendants into drug courts and monitoring systems. As reporter Steve Terrell relates in his story about the bipartisan effort, what the state is doing currently is not working. Led by Republican Sen. Lisa Torroco of Albuquerque and Democratic House Whip, State Rep. Antonio “Moe” Maestas, also of Albuquerque, the effort is designed to look at the entire code. It’s not, she said, about getting tough on crime, but about getting smart about crime. At one point, Torroco said, she realized that an animal cruelty bill she was sponsoring had harsher penalties than sentences for child abusers. Other fixes need to be made. The penalty for first-degree murder has a maximum sentence of life in prison without possibility of parole. That’s severe, except that many defendants are convicted of second-degree murder. For that charge, a maximum is sentence is only 15 years. Aggravated battery only has a maximum sentence of three years. Maestas would like to see, possibly, harsher sentences for second-degree murder convictions and an additional category for severe cases of battery. Folded into the potential rewrite of the criminal code will be a new look at what kind of punishments work best. Prisons should be set aside for the worst, most violent offenders. That’s smart law-making. It preserves human capital as well as saving the state millions, possibly billions, of dollars. In a nice twist, New Mexico legislators have been inspired by criminal justice reforms from the state of Texas as well as a conservative website, RightOnCrime. com. The Texas reforms apparently cut crime and have resulted in the shutdown of two prisons. This reform drive is necessary and welcome. At the federal level, Attorney General Eric Holder has asked for changes to the federal prison system. National and state reforms could help the country reduce its prison population — ours is the largest in the world, with China (with four times the population) a distant second. We lock up one in 107 American adults, according to figures from 2011. Mandatory minimum sentences and the war on drugs helped drive up the prison population, with numbers held behind bars tripling from 1980 to 2008. With our violent crime rate decreasing — it’s half what it was in 1997 — now is the perfect time to reconsider how we administer justice. With a governor who is a former prosecutor and legislators with experience defending and prosecuting criminals, New Mexico should be well-equipped to improve the criminal code.

Jon Paul Romero must go


oters in the Pojoaque Valley School District knew that Jon Paul Romero had a checkered past when they elected him to their school board. He has had six drunken-driving arrests and two convictions. His license to drive has been revoked four times. He won election anyway — twice. Now, though, Romero was spotted on video cameras walking away with an iguana sculpture from the Red Sage Bar at Buffalo Thunder Casino & Resort last September. The sculpture, valued at between $3,500 and $5,000, was recovered, and apparently, Romero won’t be facing serious penalties. The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office referred Romero to the District Attorney’s Office, where DA Angela “Spence” Pacheco is referring him to a pre-prosecution program for first-time, nonviolent offenders. Standard operating procedure, she says. He could have been charged with a third-degree felony. That’s the criminal side of the equation. We would argue that a man with Romero’s record of drinking and driving isn’t a run-of-the-mill offender, especially since the theft occurred in a bar — where, it turns out, Romero was drinking. Who drove him home? But there’s another factor to be considered. School board members are examples to their community, especially schoolchildren. A board member who walks off with an expensive sculpture after drinking at a bar is a bad example. Romero would serve his community best by resigning from the board. Then he can concentrate on clearing up his legal issues and, perhaps, rethinking his drinking habits.


Want privacy? Turn off the iPhone


ow it’s everybody against everybody else,” the Italian daily Corriere della Sera commented wryly before reporting the latest electronic surveillance scandal. Corriere and another Italian newspaper, La Stampa, broke the story simultaneously. According to them, European Council President Herman Van Rompuy grew suspicious about a USB stick and a phone charger he had received as gifts from the organizers of the Group of 20 summit in St. Petersburg last month. He handed the gadgets over to intelligence experts in Brussels who called in help from Germany. According to the Italian reports, German technicians found the devices to be “Trojan horses” designed to obtain information from phones and computers. Russia, of course, denied that it had been so inhospitable. “This is clearly an attempt to divert attention from real problems that dominate the agenda between European capitals and Washington,” President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. The denial, however, was somewhat incomplete without corroboration from Van Rompuy, who said nothing on the record, allowing the Italian stories to stand. Incomplete denials are nothing new in the global electronic surveillance scandal known as Datagate. The White House,

famously, denied that its National Security Agency was tapping German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s phone or was planning to do so in the future. Merkel, understandably, assumed that since the past wasn’t covered by the denial, she would be justified in complaining to President Obama and the whole world. Just as the Russian USB-drive story made the rounds, NSA Director Keith Alexander was denying that his agency had collected call data in European countries, suggesting instead that these nations’ intelligence services had made them available to the U.S. in the spirit of anti-terrorist cooperation. This denial had more holes in it than an unsuspecting user’s digital privacy. People in France or Spain shouldn’t care which intelligence service originally tapped their phones, especially if the covertly obtained data ended up at the NSA. Besides, Alexander didn’t deny a far more outrageous charge made against his agency: That the NSA listened to the telephone conversations of 35 world leaders. The White House has publicly denied ever tapping British Prime Minister David Cameron’s phone, but it isn’t clear whether other countries that questioned the U.S. about the allegation, such as South Korea, have received satisfactory answers. Many, but not all, of the U.S. digital

spying revelations come from NSA leaker Edward Snowden. The allegations about Russia definitely do not. It is unclear why they surfaced in two competing newspapers from the north of Italy, the Turin Stampa and the Milan Corriere. It would be easy to build a conspiracy theory around the leak, as Putin’s spokesman does. Datagate, however, has gone far enough for the sources and origins of any new allegations to be unimportant. It is the undeniable truth that tens of millions of law-abiding citizens, as well as dozens of politicians, have had their communications monitored by intelligence services. These services may rearrange their protocols, as Germany and France demand now, but they are unlikely suddenly to get religion and drop the unsavory surveillance practices. Everyone in the U.S. and Europe should assume that no electronic communication is private, simply because spook services have the technical ability to intercept it. It’s an easy assumption: People in Russia and China have lived with it forever. If you want true privacy, don’t use gadgets — go with good old face-to-face meetings. If nothing else, it may do wonders for your social life. Leonid Bershidsky, an editor and novelist, is a Bloomberg View contributor.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Nov. 3, 1963: A formerly prominent Santa Fe physician, convicted of kidnapping in 1951, has worked as a psychiatrist in the San Antonio State Hospital although she had no medical license. The woman worked at the hospital for about five years. She had been convicted in Santa Fe for kidnapping the 9-year-old daughter of Mr. Allen Stamm, a prominent Santa Fe contractor and landowner, and held for ransom. She was sentenced to a term of from 10 to 15 years but released in 1957. Nov. 3, 1988: Hispanics who think their vote in next week’s election will not count are wrong, actress Rita Moreno told a group of Democrats in Santa Fe on Sunday night. Moreno traveled from Los Angeles to push Michael Dukakis to about 200 New Mexico Democrats gathered at the National Education Association building. Her visit followed two hours of speeches from the “truth squad,” a panel of New Mexico women who said they wanted to correct what they say are inaccurate statements about Dukakis by Republicans and to get other Dukakis supporters to spread their word.

Anti-Fan will be missed


he newspaper’s decision to discontinue The Anti-Fan column saddens many loyal readers of The Santa Fe New Mexican, this one included. Unless you are a follower of local high school sports, his column was one of the few reasons to turn to your sports pages. It was literate, well-researched, interesting and readable. The explanation that the resources that The Anti-Fan required were needed for local news is a puzzlement. Can we expect Saturday’s Marc Simmons column to suffer the same fate? The Anti-Fan was a “local” column and the conversion of those resources it required to local news can hardly be expected to overwhelm readers with additional local news, or increase dramatically the editor’s local “news hole.” That said, the goal of producing more local news is to be commended. TV, the Internet and other strange and unusual “news” outlets will never replace a newspaper that gives its readers the community news available nowhere else. Newspapers that survived the recent hard time (The New Mexican included) will flourish so long as they give readers news of their community, and this apparently is the editor’s goal. In his farewell column, The Anti-Fan reminisced about his early days in the newspaper profession, describing the shift from “hot metal” to “cold type” in the production of newspapers. I have been a reader of The New Mexican for 57 years and watched as it changed with the times. What The Anti-Fan didn’t comment on was the changes that followed in the newsrooms. (His was an Underwood, mine is a Royal). Hot metal newsrooms were noisy. Typewriters clicking, The Associated Press teletype chattering away, its bell announcing breaking stories. Smoking was allowed, and as deadlines approached, the smoke got thicker. Election night, pizzas appeared, and perhaps after the polls closed, a six-pack of beer might be slipped in through the mail room. Today’s newsrooms are silent. Cellphones eliminate the noisy rings of the old dial phones atop each desk. Computers might hum but are not distracting. No smoking, of course, and there is a soft drink machine in the breakroom. The Anti-Fan must have enjoyed his work as a journalist over the years and is one of the few still around who remember the “hot metal” days. They are becoming like World War II veterans — disappearing daily. We can only wish The AntiFan the best and assure him we enjoyed his 14 years in The New Mexican sports pages. We hope the new editor puts those 15 inches his news hole gained to good use.

This election, progressives are prepared


’m proud to have stepped into the role of chairwoman of the Progressive Santa Fe Political Action Committee because of its values and vision for our city. The purpose of Progressive Santa Fe is to provide an independent vehicle for Santa Feans to participate in the election process and ensure their voices are heard. We’re committed to ensuring that a leader who is passionate about protecting the living wage, the environment and equal rights for all is elected as the next mayor of Santa Fe. Progressive Santa Fe exists to elevate progressive issues, illuminate where candidates stand and make sure voters are aware of relevant information needed to make informed decisions. As an example, The New Mexican recently wrote about open records requests that we submitted. What the paper failed to mention is that we submitted these open records requests to simply authenticate the water bill stories that had already been reported on — by The New Mexican. This kind of research on publicly available information is done by journalists every day, including reporters who work for The New Mexican, and is standard due diligence for any campaign. What we won’t do is conduct personal character attacks such as the story The New Mexican wrote regarding the personal life of one candidate’s campaign manager. We reject that type of tabloid-style mudslinging and will remain focused on the issues at hand. I want to illuminate for you why we formed Progressive Santa Fe. In the Democratic Primary of 2012, I was a supporter of David Coss for state representative. David has always been a progressive champion and a friend to the environment. He ran a great campaign and received every endorsement possible to a candidate. All signs pointed to David winning. In the last four days of the election, an organization (run by the political consultant to Gov. Susana Martinez and funded by some of her corpo-

rate backers), spent upward of $30,000 on mail and phone calls. No one saw the Big Oil and Gas-funded Sandy Reform New Buffett Mexico Now coming, and several candidates alleged to the Attorney General that it failed to properly disclose its donors in a timely manner. From my viewpoint, it’s the reason David Coss lost the election. Fast-forward to this mayoral election. We strongly support clean elections and applaud candidates that choose public financing. But our public financing law in Santa Fe has failed to keep up with the times. After the United States Supreme Court struck down a critical matching fund provision in 2011, Santa Fe’s City Council failed to create new policy that would disincentivize independent campaign spending. What that means in real terms is that there’s nothing stopping well-funded, anti-progressive groups from spending as much outside money as they want to influence Santa Fe’s mayoral election. There are no consequences and certainly no level playing field. This remains our major concern. That Republicans and polluting special-interest donors will intervene with tens of thousands of late money — the way they did just one year ago here in Santa Fe, and we want progressives to be ready. Like many of you, I feel a great sense of responsibility to Santa Fe. You may not like Progressive Santa Fe PAC, but I hope you respect the role we believe is necessary: to stand as a counterweight to outside money that cares little about what progressives in Santa Fe believe. A level playing field is not created by hoping and wishing. It is created by being prepared to fight for what you believe in. Sandy Buffett is serving as chairwoman for Progressive Santa Fe Political Action Committee.

Issues that matter: From immigration to a beautiful city


hile I was away from Santa Fe this summer, I drafted some letters that were never submitted for publication. While no longer as timely as when I wrote them, they still may have validity. The first of these, below, applies to immigration, which is an issue on the shelf, unfortunately, but reflects on the current impasse in Congress. u What to do about fixing our serious immigration problem? In this country, issues are decided traditionally by the majority. The filibuster usually and sadly hamstrings the Senate, but hopefully this bill may be passed by a bipartisan vote of over 60. But what about the House? There the problem is that bills that are not supported by a majority of

the Republican caucus usually are not brought to a vote by the speaker (the Hastert Rule). The far-right Republicans whose members are assured of re-election may hold a slim majority of that caucus and thus prevent a vote. While more moderate Republicans may agree with a bill and with the Democrats would form a majority of the entire House, the Hastert Rule permits a minority to foil the will of the people, much as can the filibuster in the Senate. u Remember how the British appeased Hitler in the expectation that he would be satisfied with a little bit of Europe? Mistake! Now we are faced with the opportunity to appease Assad as most Americans seem ready to do. No, Assad is not poised to

invade other countries, but he seems willing to take any measure to kill off his own people, at least those who haven’t fled. A way must be found to persuade him that sarin gas use must stop. Let’s hope our president is smart enough to figure out how without triggering a disaster like World War II. u There seems to be a disturbing similarity between tea party Republicans and jihadists. The latter are bent the premise that strict Islam is the only acceptable way. Random bombings and shooting massacres are their method of persuasion. No compromise! Their objective was achieved when the Muslim Brotherhood took power in Egypt, ironically by election rather than terror, but that was unacceptable to the people.

The tea party has the objective of minimizing government, eliminating “Obamacare,” resisting gun control, reducing food stamps, preventing women’s choice, reducing government regulation, eviscerating Social Security, stomping on immigrants, etc. No compromise! So far, no terror tactics, but stalling effective government. If, God forbid, they succeed and the poor and the middle class give even more to the rich, maybe there will be an uprising: “We won’t take it anymore.” While it’s clear that most of my above thoughts on national politics are negative, although I hope constructive, I’d like to inject a couple of positive notes (local not national). The Lannan Foundation deserves

much praise for sponsoring the lectures at the Lensic Performing Arts Center. Santa Feans in large numbers attend these low-cost, intellectually stimulating events, always filling the house. The Beckett films at the Screen were provided to us free of charge and again we filled the house. Few, if any, communities have access to such uplifting events, and at such modest prices. On another note, the city is to be complimented on the attractive landscaping of the medians on several streets, including the Old Las Vegas Highway and Paseo de Peralta.

In my time: America today



A name that would honor fighting spirit


n June 1870, the most powerful American Indian leader in the country, Red Cloud, arrived in Washington with a contingent of Oglala and Brule Sioux. He was treated as a head of state, given tours of the Capitol and the Washington Navy Yard — where he witnessed a gunnery demonstration — and was feted at a White House reception hosted by President Ulysses S. Grant. The former commander of the Union armies may have recognized the significance of Red Cloud accomplishing in two years what Robert E. Lee could not in four: defeating the United States in a war. What is called Red Cloud’s War officially began in 1866 when the Sioux leader could no longer abide the relentless incursions, including the building of U.S. Army forts, into his people’s territory. The high point of the war occurred when he and his field commander Crazy Horse wiped out an Army troop of 81 men. President Andrew Johnson’s stunned administration sued for peace. In November 1868, Red Cloud signed a treaty to end the fighting — only after burning the Army forts to the ground. Less than two years later, Red Cloud was in the nation’s capital. “He became stunningly famous,” historian R. Eli Paul wrote. “Newspapers recounted his every word and deed, and large crowds of onlookers gathered at every public sighting.” It is time for Red Cloud to return to Washington — on the professional football team’s jerseys and in its fighting spirit. In an Oct. 9 letter to Washington Redskins season-ticket holders, owner Daniel Snyder reiterated his pride in the team and resisted calls to change its name, which Indian groups and others have proclaimed offensive. Snyder emphasized: “Our past isn’t just where we came from — it’s who we are.” In a response dated three days later and published in The Washington Post, Robert Brave Heart and George Winzenburg, executive vice president and president, respectively, of the Red Cloud Indian School in South Dakota, declared: “As an organization, Red Cloud Indian School has never — and will never — endorse the use of the name ‘Redskins.’ ” They urged Snyder to “engage in further discussion with Native groups across the country and, ultimately, to move toward changing the name, once and for all.” That discussion can be a short one. The team should be renamed for the great leader who is buried on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, a short walk from the school named after him. Such a move would not only ease tension between American Indians and the NFL, but naming the team after Red Cloud would also signify strength, intelligence and perseverance — qualities any NFL team would be proud to project. The name change from Redskins to Red Clouds would go a long way toward repairing the relationship between the NFL and American Indians. And it would involve minor alterations to the team’s logo and even its famous fight song, which could be sung, without missing a beat, as “Hail to the Red Clouds.” Red

Cloud’s profile would be most appealing on jerseys and banners. Finally, there is precedent for naming an NFL franchise after an individual — the Cleveland Browns took their name from their first head coach, Ohio coaching legend Paul Brown. Such was his foresight and courage that he was the only Indian to have defeated the United States in not just a battle but a declared war. Born to an alcoholic father who died soon thereafter, Red Cloud’s future appeared dim in the patriarchal Sioux society. Yet he used his insight, innate leadership skills and fearlessness to forge an Indian alliance across the High Plains. Once he led the Sioux to victory over stronger enemies such as the Pawnee and Crow, and co-opted proud tribes such as the Cheyenne and Arapaho into vassal allies, Red Cloud turned his eye toward the white adventurers, miners and settlers streaming into his territory. They were no match for his military acumen — nor were the U.S. Army officers and soldiers sent to subdue him. The strategy and tactics designed by Red Cloud and carried out by Crazy Horse — the wiry, young fellow tribesman Red Cloud promoted to field commander — became a guerilla campaign that crippled the Army. Never before had Indians coordinated multiple raids and ambushes hundreds of miles apart or immediately followed up on successful attacks. In December 1866, when his army of braves descended on a frigid battlefield in north-central Wyoming and wiped out the U.S. soldiers under Lt. Col. William Fetterman’s command, Red Cloud morphed from a canny guerilla commander to a fearless warrior-chief who brought the U.S. government to its knees. Red Cloud was one of the most famous American Indians of the 1800s. His trips to Wash-

ington to represent the interests of the Sioux and other tribes were covered by newspapers from Chicago to New York to Boston. These same newspapers gave prominent position to his obituary when Red Cloud died in 1909, at age 88. What football team would not be honored to bear his name? And what general manager and coach would not use Red Cloud’s personal story as a template for creating a winning franchise? Named after such a proud and powerful winner, the Washington Red Clouds would be a lock to emulate their namesake and rout 49ers, defeat Raiders, humiliate Cowboys, pluck Eagles, turn back Texans, break Broncos and generally leave quivering the remaining wouldbe Giants and Titans of the National Football League. And that is something for Daniel Snyder to consider.

egardless of political affiliations, the past several weeks have been an eye opener for many Americans. It is so evident that our system is truly broken. There is such a feeling of discontent by citizens with our elected representation in Congress on both sides of the aisle. In eight decades of my life, through wartime, peacetime, and civil discontent, never has the complexion of the country been so wary of the business of running this great American country. Do we need to have a crisis to have people come together as a human family, with love, consideration and respect for each other? The people who have been chosen to represent us have ignored what is most important to the majority in our land. It is evident that self-interest is the priority of many our elected officials. Many presidents in the past

have been disliked, even hated but never has the man in the White House been so maligned. It is almost over and he will no longer reside there. Should we not as Americans show respect to the office regardless of our individual beliefs if only to show the world how our democracy works. We encourage other countries to follow our example, but our example leaves much to be desired. There is much to improve in our society but it will take the willpower, determination and goodwill of everyone to make a difference in this America that we love, so our legacy to future generations will be something of pride in our way of life. It seems respect for each other first as members of the human family is a thing that has to be relearned and encouraged from infancy to adulthood. No matter the color, creed of cultural differences

Santa Fe Institute Community Lecture Turing’s Cathedral: The Origins of the Digital Universe

The two most powerful technologies of the 20th century – the nuclear bomb and the computer – were developed in New Mexico at the same time and by the same group of young people. But while the history of the Manhattan Project has been well told, the origin of the computer is relatively unknown. Historian George Dyson tells the story of how Alan Turing, John von Neumann, and a small band of other geniuses not only built the computer but foresaw the new world it would create.

George Dyson is the author of Turing’s Cathedral and a historian of technology whose writing covers the evolution of technology in relation to the physical environment and the direction of society.

Bob Drury and Thomas Clavin are the authors of The Heart of Everything That Is: The Untold Story of Red Cloud, an American Legend, to be published Tuesday. This was written for The Washington Post.

We are unique as individuals but commonly the same with each of our brothers and sisters in the whole world. I believe we still have the integrity to do the right thing. It is in our best interest to work together as family members, neighbors and countrymen to come to the table to share and resolve the problems we are all affected by.

Celebrate horses, don’t punish them Fall color and flowing river provide bliss


he recent decision by Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly to drop the Nation’s endorsement of horse slaughter and seek humane solutions for free-roaming horses is a monumental event for New Mexico and the Western United States (“Navajos to end horse roundups for slaughter,” Oct. 8). With the halting of cruel horse roundups and subsequent sale to auctions (with the destination being horse slaughPhil Carter terhouses), the Nation has made clear its support for proactive and humane efforts for the horses on its lands. As reported by The Associated Press, a meeting between former Gov. Bill Richardson and President Shelly in early October secured the new approach to horse welfare by the Navajo Nation. Richardson, acting on behalf of his Foundation to Protect New Mexico Wildlife — co-founded with screen legend Robert Redford — has been a vital leader in protecting imperiled horses both during his governorship and after. Credit is also due to President Shelly in listening to the individuals and chapters who have protested inhumane roundups. This leadership by the Navajo Nation and Gov. Richardson is a significant step toward turning our state’s attentions to the fundamental issues facing New Mexico horses and away from the cynicism and hopelessness promoted by slaughter boosters. Industrialized slaughter of horses is an attempt to solve a problem with the same thinking that created it. Rather than

reduce horse overpopulation, slaughter is only an easy outlet for those who devalue horses, allowing for thousands of animals annually deemed unprofitable to be swept under the rug. Horse slaughter cannot be conducted humanely, not because of technology available or regulatory abilities but because horses are physically and mentally incompatible with slaughter. A profitable slaughterhouse’s transport trucks and assembly lines can never give panicking horses safe transport or a quick, clean death, and the process is nothing less than torture to the animals. New Mexicans do not want horse slaughter in our state — 70 percent oppose the practice according to a 2013 poll. The vast majority of our population understands that the only purpose horse slaughter serves to our state is an unnecessary distraction from seriously addressing the causes

of equine suffering. The kinds of solutions that ensure a humane life and dignified death for horses being developed for Navajo lands are already in place across the state. The Equine Protection Fund, a partnership between Animal Protection of New Mexico and the New Mexico Community Foundation, recently celebrated its 450th animal helped through the emergency feed assistance program or given relief via its veterinary care programs. Please visit for more information on the Equine Protection Fund. The stakes are obviously much higher for thousands of Navajo horses, but the principle of addressing them is the same, through local leadership and planning, and valuing and respecting the animals and the land. Work ahead could include expanding efforts with Navajo chapters to provide resources that include fertility control

and veterinary assistance to relieve suffering animals. An accurate count of the horses and community-driven efforts for assistance where needed, in collaboration with horse owners and tribal government, are lasting solutions that will benefit everyone. There is much good work to be done, and the commitment to humane options by the Navajo Nation is cause for renewed optimism. Please join in supporting statewide efforts for real New Mexican solutions for horses, donkeys and mules. Phil Carter is equine campaign manager for Animal Protection of New Mexico and the coordinator for the Equine Protection Fund.

njoying the outdoors during the late fall season can be exciting. Just because the peak moment in time for the golden aspens has passed does not mean the colors are gone. There are opportunities to excite your senses in the small draws and streambeds at lower elevations around Santa Fe. One splendid area to enjoy in late October is the Santa Fe Canyon Preserve, managed by The Nature Conservancy. Cottonwoods and willow trees are in full color along the lower Santa Fe River Watershed. This year there is a unique opportunity to see the Santa Fe River flowing in the lower reaches because of the ongoing construction and repair at Nichols Reservoir that requires stored water to be drained. The release of water is not typical for this time of year. Usually the water is held back to contribute toward providing drinking water for the city. For the Santa Fe River to be flowing with a significant flow at this time of year is rare,

which makes the event a real pleasure. To see and hear the water moving, especially past the Old Stone Dam, is a wonderful experience. It gives you a chance to imagine what it must have been like before the Santa Fe River channel was redirected. After all, the river is a centerpiece for the city. The additional flow provides a wealth of watershed values to the river system. It contributes to the healthy riparian habitat and recharges the shallow water table. Not to mention the recreational encounters that are associated with the running river. You have a sense of renewal as the water moves downstream. The constant sound to the river that is so characteristic has been lost over the years. It is refreshing to hear the sounds again, and to know that the river system is energetic, even if it’s just for a short time. Steven Hamp is a hydrologist, retired and living in Santa Fe.

Clearing up the Bridge Scholarship fog

PNM: Too D little, too late W

e live in sunny New Mexico, nevertheless Public Service Company of New Mexico, our electricity provider, produces 58 percent of our energy from coal, 20 percent nuclear, 14 percent gas, and 6 percent wind and only 1 percent utility-owned solar. PNM’s dirty coal-fired San Juan Generating Station alone uses 8 billion gallons of water per year, more than twice what the city of Santa Fe uses. It releases more than 12 million tons of carbon dioxide, 18,000 tons of nitrogen oxides, 5500 tons of sulfur dioxides and many other contaminants into the air annually, These emissions have Jeff Haas already cost the public an estimated $240 million in total health care costs including hospitalizations, emergency room visits, asthma and other lung diseases. PNM’s coal plants are New Mexico’s greatest emitter of greenhouse gases. To settle a lawsuit brought by the EPA and several environmental groups, PNM has agreed to close Units 2 and 3 at its San Juan Generating Station by 2017 and to put environmental controls known as Selective NonCatalytic Reduction on Units 1 and 4. This will decrease the amount of electricity generated from burning coal by about 850 megawatts. Although a step in the right direction, PNM’s plan is not nearly strong enough or fast enough to avoid continued rising temperatures that are contributing to a changing and destabilizing climate. Instead PNM’s plan seeks to lock in fossil fuel-generated electricity when the a consensus of the world’s scientists is that we must get off our fossil fuel addiction. Recently, we have seen flooding in New Mexico and Colorado, the largest forest fire in the Sierras, hurricanes on both coasts of Mexico, typhoons in Hong Kong and China, leaving death, massive destruction, property damage and severe contamination in their wake. PNM’s proposal would substitute more electricity generated by coal, nuclear and gas to replace the units closed at San

Juan and only a paltry amount of solar. Utilities in nearby states are replacing outmoded coal plants with 20 percent to 50 percent renewables. PNM’s plan not only continues its dependence on burning fossil fuels, but also ignores imminent new EPA limits on carbon emissions at existing power plants as well as limits on the production of coal ash. These will raise the cost of coal power-generated electricity substantially. Guess who pays those bills? PNM’s historic dependence on coal despite overwhelming evidence of its bad effects on climate and health has resulted in its owning and amortizing obsolete and expensive plants out to 2053. PNM’s plan will cost ratepayers more than obtaining power from wind and solar. Wind-generated electricity is currently available at 2.3 cents a kilowatt-hour, according to a recently filing by Southwestern Public Service. The nuclear power PNM wants to import from Arizona will cost ratepayers more than 5 cents per kWh. Coal will be increasingly costly due to heightened environmental regulations; and building a new gas plant puts customers at risk for the gas price bubble that is likely to burst. Wind and solar have no fuel costs, are better for the environment and will create jobs in New Mexico. PNM does not need to replace the San Juan unit closings with more coal and more costly and dangerous nuclear. Fukishima is still leaking radioactivity into the ocean. A much healthier, less polluting, less climate disruptive, and less costly scenario would close Unit 1 by 2014, Units 2 and 3 by 2017, and Unit 4 by 2023. Because of the increased availability of wind-generated electricity, PNM’s base load requirement is reduced. PNM can replace fossil fuel and nuke base load with wind, solar, energy efficiency and gas only to be dispatched when wind and solar are not available. Ratepayers should get the health, environmental, and cost-savings benefits of renewables and not be vulnerable to PNM’s fossil fuel and nuke dependency.

Why Wait For Winter’s Holiday Rush?

Christmas in November Special

o you remember playing the “telephone game” in school? You know, the one where someone starts with whispering something in your ear and then you have to whisper the same thing in the ear of the person next to you and so on? Well that’s the best metaphor that I can think of to capture what has happened in regards to the Bridge Scholarship at The University of New Mexico. What most members of the public are being told is that “critics” are fighting with UNM because changes were made to the Bridge Scholarship. The original requirements to receive this scholarship as an incoming freshman were at least a 2.5 GPA and a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Many incoming students depended on this originally $1,000 scholarship to make ends meet until they (hopefully) qualified for the Lottery Scholarship in their second semester. But recently it was publicly announced at a counselors’ breakfast that the requirements had changed. Incoming students now had to have at least a 3.0 GPA and an ACT score of 23. It’s important to underscore and highlight the and, it’s not an or. The ACT is an exam that supposedly shows “college readiness.” Here are some figures of how likely a New Mexican student would be in qualifying for the “new” Bridge Scholarship:

u In 2012 the average score of students who took the ACT was 21.1. u Only seven states in the U.S. had ACT had averages greater than a 23. u In 2012, New Mexico students scored an average of a 19.9 on the ACT. Virginia Counselors returned Necochea to their schools to inform hundreds of high school seniors that they would now not qualify for the Bridge unless of course they had a 3.0 and a 23 ACT. This information was being disseminated across the high schools in our state and our UNM administrators, I’m sure, did not lose any sleep worrying about the distress this caused financially struggling students and families who did not meet the new requirements. As a member of the New Mexico Coalition for Equity and Justice, it seems vital that the public understand that the community was in an uproar not solely because the Bridge requirements had been changed. A major part that has been excluded is that what really drove the community to act was UNM’s lack of communication, lack of transparency and the lack of including the larger community in a decision that would have such a great

impact on New Mexican students — especially those who have not had access to proper test prep and a college-bound education. Thus one of the main contentions at this point is over how a public institution should function and what its purpose really is. The other tangled side of the story has to do with the question of discrimination. All of this seems to boil down to whether or not UNM is being discriminatory toward “at-risk” and low-income students. If one looks at the data and current university practices — the answer is a resounding yes. Many are trying to flee from issues of race, but the reality is that we continue to live in a society that determines much of our net worth and position on the ladder according to our race. If this weren’t so, the statistics would tell a different story. What we need to own up to is the fact that our educational system is flawed and it still does not give everyone the same access and opportunities regardless if they work hard or not. One cannot be so easily swayed by myths of meritocracy and postracialism.

Land grant heirs regain cemetery access Forest Service deal allows change to be made administratively instead of congressionally By Uriel J. Garcia The New Mexican

The U.S. Forest Service has admitted a decades-old error in claiming land in Northern New Mexico that encroached on an 1806 land grant. Leonard Martinez, president

of the San Joaquin del Rio de Chama Land Grant Association and a descendant of the land’s heirs, said that after years of political pressure, the agency has granted access to the disputed 5 acres, the site of a cemetery that was used by the land grant

In brief

heirs for generations. The agency agreed with the association about the mistake in August, and on Oct. 26 it held a public event announcing the finding. The land grant heirs and the Forest Service will still need to formalize what the association can and can’t do on the land, Martinez said, adding that the process could take a few months. Advocates for New Mexico

families who contend their landgrant rights — guaranteed by the Spanish government before the United States acquired the region — haven’t been adequately recognized saw the agency’s decision as a rare bright spot in their legal and political struggle. “This is the most positive thing that has happened in 100 years,” said Manuel Garcia y Griego, a

Las Conchas Fire lawsuits could be costly for embattled electric co-op

Shelter operations to be longer this season Thanks to contributions from private donors, the Interfaith Community Shelter opened two weeks earlier this year (Oct. 20) and will stay open two weeks longer in the spring. The shelter also will remain open an hour longer every morning, to allow guests an extra hour of sleep. The shelter, which is the largest emergency shelter in Northern New Mexico, provided accommodations last winter for nearly 1,000 people, served 15,497 meals and provided 12,597 bed nights. It provided 1,459 showers and gave out 6,604 pieces of clothing. More than 2,400 volunteers and 45 faith and community groups supply the meals. In addition to the donations that allowed extended hours, another one made it possible to install 36 more beds than at opening time last year. To volunteer, call 795-7494.

Plaintiffs in the lawsuits blame Jemez Mountains Electric for not keeping the power line easement clear of trees, as required by state law.

emez Mountains Electric Cooperative, Tri-State Generation and an Española tree service are being sued by more than 50 property owners and insurance companies over damage caused by the massive 2011 Las Conchas Fire, which burned dozens of homes and 150,000 acres. The pueblos of Cochiti and Jemez also have filed claims against the electric cooperative and the U.S. Forest Service over the wildfire, which was sparked by a downed power line in the Jemez Mountains on Santa Fe National Forest land. The lawsuits could ultimately cost the already financially embattled rural electric cooperative millions of dollars. It is too soon to know how much the Northern New Mexico cooperative will have to pay over Las Conchas claims and how the costs will affect the cooperative’s members, said general manager Ernesto Gonzales. “We’re still in the discovery phase,” he said. A two-year deadline has passed for plaintiffs to sue over the Las Conchas Fire. The blaze broke out when a tree fell on a power line, sparking a wildfire in grass. Plaintiffs blame Jemez Mountains Electric for not keeping the power line easement clear of trees, as required by state law. They also blame the Forest Service for not granting Jemez Mountains a wide enough easement to clear away trees tall

enough to fall on a power line. Jemez Mountains Electric Cooperative is the state’s largest rural electric cooperative, serving customers in Santa Fe, Rio Arriba, San Juan, Sandoval and McKinley counties. Cooperatives are owned by the members, who pay for electric service. Anything that affects the cooperative’s costs is ultimately paid by the members. Turner Branch in Albuquerque is representing 26 of the property owners who filed claims in District Court in Bernalillo County. He expects the court will appoint a special master in the next few months to calculate the value of homes, vehicles and other property burned in the fire. Allied Tree Service in Española also has been named in some of the claims because the firm may have had a contract with Jemez Mountains Electric Cooperative to keep the power line easement clear of trees. “We’re trying to determine the duties, responsibilities and obligations of each party,” Branch said. Julian Herrera, owner of the tree service business, denied his company had a contract at the time of the forest fire, but he referred other questions to his attorney. Cochiti and Jemez pueblos filed civil claims in June against Jemez Mountains Electric, which owns the power line that sparked the fire. The pueblos and Cochiti’s private enterprise corporation each claim the fire and post-fire flooding caused more than $15 million in damages.

At Kirtan Fest, a celebration of sound and spirit By Robert Nott The New Mexican

Some might say that only in Santa Fe would you find a group of people engaging in a call-and-response chant designed to raise group consciousness and channel it toward peaceful coexistence.

The fest’s organizer, Genevieve “Gaia” Richards, said of Kirtan, “When you make a sound, the vibration soothes you and tethers you — to your godhead.” Still, she said Kirtan is not necessarily tied to any spiritual practice. “It’s accessible to everyday

Scientists oppose logging bills By Scott Sonner The Associated Press

RENO, Nev. — More than 200 biologists, ecologists and other scientists are urging Congress to defeat legislation they say would destroy critical wildlife habitat by setting aside U.S. environmental laws to speed logging of burned trees at Yosemite National Park and other national forests and wilderness areas across the West. The experts say two measures pushed by pro-logging interests ignore a growing scientific consensus that the burned landscape plays a critical role in forest regeneration and is home to many birds, bats and other species found nowhere else. “We urge you to consider what the science is telling us: that post-fire habitat created by fire, including patches of severe fire, are ecological treasures rather than ecological catastrophes, and that post-fire logging does far more harm than good to the nation’s public lands,” they wrote in a letter mailed to members of Congress Friday.

Albuquerque police chief: Shootout, chase could have been much worse ALBUQUERQUE — Albuquerque is lucky more people weren’t hurt during a chaotic shootout and chase that ended with four law-enforcement officers wounded and the gunman dead, interim Police Chief Allen Banks said Saturday. From one end of the city to the other, gunfire rang out as Albuquerque police officers and deputies with the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office were ambushed by Christopher Chase. Banks described how one officer used his belt to stop the bleeding of another who had been shot in the leg and how another officer scooped up her wounded colleague and rushed him to the hospital. He said a sergeant’s quick thinking also helped avoid more casualties as Chase weaved through busy areas of the city in a stolen police car. Chase was armed with a rifle, a handgun and more than 350 rounds of ammunition. He was dressed in body armor, camouflage clothing and a black mask. “We do believe that he felt this was going to be his last day,” the police chief said. “He indicated to his friends and acquaintances that he was going to go out.”

Chase’s known hatred for law enforcement was symbolized in a tattoo saying “cop killer,” but Banks said Saturday that there was still no clear motive for his actions. The three Albuquerque officers wounded during the shootout are out of the hospital and recovering. But sheriff’s Deputy Robin Hopkins is still facing several weeks in the hospital and multiple surgeries to repair gunshot damage to her leg. Hopkins was transferred out of the intensive care unit Saturday, and the sheriff’s office said she’s grateful for all the community support. On Oct. 26, the first 911 call came in at about 11:20 a.m. The caller said there was someone with a rifle who was threatening citizens near the intersection of Avenida Cesar Chavez and Broadway Boulevard on the city’s south side. Officers soon learned that Chase was actually several blocks to the north. He began firing at Officer Eric Martinez as Martinez responded. The shooting drew more officers, and Chase was able to steal Martinez’s police cruiser as the wounded officer tried to take cover. The Associated Press

According to the report, the woman is accused of running her vehicle into the man’s vehicle, causing another parked car to hit a cinder-block wall. The woman then fled the scene.

DWI arrests u Police arrested Rodolpho Mendida of Santa Fe and charged him with possessions of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia after police responded to a suspicious call Friday. u Police arrested John Vander Bosch, 52, of Taos, around 11:30 p.m. Thursday at the corner of Paseo de Peralta and Webber Street and charged him with aggravated DWI. u Deputies arrested Robert Valesquez, 28, of Santa Fe, around 5:45 a.m. Saturday and charged him with driving while intoxicated near the intersection of Rancho Valle and Lower Firehouse Road.

Damage: Court to hear motions Jan. 7 Continued from Page C-1 Among the individuals who have filed claims against the Forest Service and Jemez Mountains Electric Cooperative are Gary Swearingen, Valerie Swearingen, Janice Cox Anderson and Elizabeth Ora Cox, joint owners of the 200-acre ranch where the fire started. They are each claiming $8 million in damages. The claims say that on June 26, 2011, a 60-foot-tall “visibly diseased and dying aspen tree” on private property fell onto a power line that was on an easement through the Santa Fe National Forest and ignited the Las Conchas Fire. The claimants say the Santa Fe National Forest is at fault for giving Jemez Mountains Electric Cooperative only a 20-foot-wide easement in a 1995 agreement. The claims allege there were already trees outside the easement that were tall enough to fall on the line when the agreement was signed. Tom Tosdal, an attorney whose firm represents the pueblos and the ranch owners, said Tri-State was named as well because “we believe TriState and JMAC are basically one and same.”

Tri-State Generation is owned by member cooperatives, including Jemez Mountains Electric. The cooperatives are supposed to buy their power from Tri-State. “JMAC is tied to Tri-State for next 50 years,” Tosdal said. All the District Court claims related to the Las Conchas Fire were consolidated Oct. 15. The court will hear motions Jan. 7 about how the case should move forward and how many trials there will be. The first trial likely will begin in September 2014, Tosdal said. Besides the claims related to the Las Conchas Fire, Jemez Mountains Electric is facing other increased costs. Tri-State is proposing to raise rates charged to Jemez Mountains and other member cooperatives. In addition, Jemez Mountains Electric must pay for new leases with several pueblos for power line easements across pueblo property. Utility easements came up again over the summer after two other downed power lines belonging to electric cooperatives — one in the Valles Caldera National Preserve and another in Pecos Canyon — sparked wildland fires in late May.

Fest: Kirtan dates back to sixth-century yoga practices Heirs: Trail built for better access Continued from Page C-1

Continued from Page C-1 University of New Mexico professor who helped the association survey the disputed land. Garcia y Griego heads a land grant studies program at the university. In 1978, the federal agency had declared the land in the Chama River Canyon Wilderness Area, where the cemetery is located, as part of the wilderness. As a result, access to the cemetery was only allowed by foot or horseback. Martinez said the restrictions prevented some of the descendants of land-grant heirs, who are disabled or elderly, from accessing the cemetery. As part of the agreement between the association and the Forest Service, a trail was built to ease access to the cemetery, where some of the descendants’ family members are buried. But under the deal, no living descendants of the land grant heirs can be buried there in the future, Martinez said. The association had for years lobbied the Forest Service for greater access to the cemetery, and part of New Mexico’s congressional delegation had plans to introduce legislation that would have allowed that in 2011. But the Forest Service then declared that the 1978 boundaries were never finalized. Dennise Ottaviano, a spokeswoman with the Santa Fe National Forest, said the wilderness boundaries were able to be changed administratively instead of congressionally, because the agency still had yet to finalize the land survey. “Essentially, we were able to turn back the clock to [1978],” Garcia y Griego said. Martinez said this was a rare moment in the history of disputed land grants between heirs of the land grants from the Spanish crown and the federal government. “It’s kinda weird to have the Forest Service … help us,” he said. But he said the main goal was to get the descendants of the 1806 land-grant heirs recognized as owners of the cemetery. Martinez said the association is looking forward to continuing to work with the Forest Service and hopes this announcement has built momentum for other land-grant heirs across New Mexico who have been pursing claims to disputed land with the federal government.

people — blue-jean people — regardless of religion.” “This is hot — it’s all over the nation.” Historians trace Kirtan back to Bhakti Yoga practices of sixth-century India. Richards noted that Kirtan was first introduced to America in the 1920s, but said it didn’t catch on here until the 1960s, when Swami Prabhupada’s International Society for Krishna Consciousness brought it to the forefront: “Hare Krishna —

those bald guys at the airport.” George Harrison of the Beatles was a devotee of Kirtan and used it in his hit song “My Sweet Lord” and via his production of “The Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra” in the late 1960s. Richards, a disabled U.S. Army veteran, started informally chanting Kirtan in the late 1970s. She said she officially learned it during a Kirtan workshop at Santa Fe’s Club International Family Fitness Center. The Sikhs who taught her Kirtan “told me I could teach it but not sign up for the religion,” she

said. Sunday’s Kirtan Workshop, which runs from 4 to 6 p.m., can serve as an introduction to novices, she said. (Each event costs $25 to attend.) Kirtan musician Andy Zadrozny, who took part in some of Saturday afternoon’s festivities, got hooked on Kirtan about 15 years ago in Seattle. He said Kirtan “doesn’t require you to denounce Catholicism or become a member of any religion.” He called the experience “transcendental … it’s a way of

getting past your thoughts.” Abhai Raj, another participant, said he helped found a similar Kirtan Festival in Milwaukee about five years ago. He said the dynamic of individual voices chanting together creates a calming energy that each person then carries out into the community. Richards financed the festival with her own money: “I used my grocery money for the last nine months.” She is building a coalition of partners and has put together a 10-year plan for the festival with the hope that

attendance grows over time. About 30 people attended Friday’s event, she said, and another 30 or so seemed to pass in and out of the various Kirtan offerings Saturday afternoon. Saturday’s Kirtan highlight was a 7 p.m. concert by recording artist Girish, who also will lead the Kirtan Workshop on Sunday. Visit www.santafekirtanfest. com for more details and a full schedule.

Scientists debate health benefits of licensed pot Longtime status as illegal drug makes research difficult By Ellen Jean Hirst Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO — Even though 20 states have passed laws legalizing medical marijuana, swayed in part by thousands of personal testimonies, current research hasn’t nailed down exactly if, and how, marijuana alleviates the specific diseases the drug is being legalized to treat, experts say. A number of proponents believe marijuana could benefit people with everything from glaucoma to cancer, and it’s been legalized in Illinois to aid patients with some 40 medical conditions. But opponents of its medicinal use believe the risks of smoking medical marijuana outweigh the benefits, while others question whether patients really improve or only feel like they improve. Marijuana’s best-known compound is THC, but the plant actually has 105 unique cannabis compounds with potential for medicinal use, proponents say. THC has already been approved by the Food and Drug Administration in synthetic form to help patients with nausea and decreased appetite. Some scientists believe the plant’s other compounds — called cannabinoids — could have equal promise. Although research has increased in recent years as more states legalize medical marijuana, solid evidence of how individual cannabinoids could help people with specific diseases has been significantly lacking, a review of medical literature and interviews with experts shows. Researching the potential effects of marijuana’s various components on conditions such as multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia or lupus could have serious implications for doctors who

Navy’s SeaLab II program. On Saturday, nine other astronauts, Colorado politicians and dozens of friends and family members joined Glenn at Carpenter’s funeral at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Boulder. Glenn and Carpenter became friends during astronaut training, and it was Carpenter who gave Glenn his memorable blessing as Glenn prepared to launch into space: “Godspeed, John Glenn.” “Godspeed, Scott,” Glenn said Saturday, and then paused as emotion overtook his voice. “You are missed.” Carpenter was born May 1, 1925, in Boulder and graduated from high school there before serving in the Navy in World War II and the Korean War.


want to prescribe medical marijuana to patients. If the specific benefits could be proved, experts say, doctors ultimately would be able to assign particular strains — with varying chemical mixes — to people, depending on their condition. Further research also may help determine optimal doses and whether marijuana works better than other medicines, experts say. While most medicines derived from nature are tested before they reach the masses, the process to evaluate marijuana has been confounded by its longtime status as an illegal drug, which it retains in the eyes of the federal government. A complicated federal approval process and limited availability add to the difficulty. The only study specifically cited in Illinois’ law, signed by Gov. Pat Quinn in August and set to go into effect next year, is a 1999 Institute of Medicine report. But Dr. John Benson, a lead editor of the report, said legislators stretched the conclusion of the book-length study when it said modern medical research “has confirmed the beneficial uses of cannabis.”

D.C. push to decriminalize marijuana could spur talk on federal regulation WASHINGTON — A proposal backed by most District of Columbia council members to decriminalize small amounts of pot may spur federal lawmakers to consider marijuana regulation for the first time since two states legalized recreational sales. The push to loosen local pot penalties, which few expect Congress to block, would set up what supporters say is the next step: legalizing recreational use. Growing support for legal pot and the billions in tax revenue and prison savings the change may bring has convinced some that Congress will ease laws. Groups such as Norml and the DC Cannabis Campaign are considering a ballot initiative next year to legalize pot sales in the district. If approved, it would force Congress to consider an issue the federal government has mostly left to states. The hands-off approach has created a patchwork of laws ranging from Missouri, where possession of 35 grams, about 1.25 ounces, can mean seven

While the report did say there was promise that marijuana could have medical benefits, it also suggests researchers need to continue to dig deeper into the issue. It also says marijuana should not be smoked, he said. “Smoking marijuana is not recommended,” the report states. “The long-term harm caused by smoking marijuana makes it a poor delivery system.” The 14-year-old article has become a primary source for both critics and supporters of medical marijuana — the Drug Enforcement Administration and advocacy groups have cited it to prove opposite points. “I don’t think whatever the legislature is saying [in the law] is in effect untrue,” Benson, now retired, said, “but it needs to be qualified.” Illinois legislators knew they had an uphill battle getting the medical marijuana bill passed last summer, Rep. Lou Lang said. Lang worked at swaying his colleagues for five years and said he compromised on the list of about 40 conditions — some of which are closely related — that will qualify people for medical marijuana once it becomes available sometime next year.

Childhood love of cinema launches Bronx boy into high society By Dennis Carroll

For The New Mexican


ne would not likely be surprised that a boy whose mother had dressed him up as Shirley Temple might develop a certain fanciful bent on life. “My mother decided to turn her beautiful babe into her very own doll, made to resemble the cinematic darling,” Eric Gustafson, 78, of Santa Fe writes in the opening page of one of his several autobiographical books, Cinderella Is A Man — A Picaresque Passage to Serenity. Gustafson — author, world traveler, art connoisseur, bon vivant and friend to many high-society and celebrity “grand personages” over the decades — describes himself as a “work of art,” having steeped himself in music, art, literature and the theater from an early age. “I loved the movies,” said Gustafson, who grew up in the Bronx borough of New York City. “My education was through the movies. I identified and I went home and played out the scenes” in the “comfort films” made to take people’s minds off World War II. “They were always placed in beautiful manor houses in, say, Hampshire, England, or Long Island … ladies in beautiful gowns and jewels and with white-gloved waiters with flutes of Champagne. “The actors spoke with their wonderful Hampshire or Noel Coward accents, and I went home and I said, ‘What’s wrong with this picture?’ … All the ‘dems’ and ‘dos’ [thems and those] around me. … I started to imitate the accents I heard in the movies.” Also a strong influence on Gustafson were the books he read on the manner and the goings-on of European aristocrats, as well as his fascination with the glamour and grandeur of the Metropolitan Opera and New York and New Jersey ballet companies. “As a child, I changed my way of speaking, I changed my attitude about where I was going in the world. I knew that the Bronx was what was wrong with the picture.” Gustafson said that by the time he was 12, “I was already going in the direction to put myself in the path of aristocracy and high society — and it happened.” His interest in art led him in the early 1960s to New York’s Parke-Bernet, at the time considered the largest fine-arts auction house in the country, later bought by Sotheby’s. There, he eventually became a consultant to “special clients,” which, along with subsequent world travels and work at East Coast galleries and museums, brought him into contact with dozens of luminaries of the age. They included Greta Garbo (“She wanted to adopt me”), Elizabeth Taylor, whose advice he took for ending his decades-long drinking affliction) and Jackie Kennedy (who “undressed me with her eyes.”)

Among the more memorable encounters with grand personages were his visits with Harry and Bess Truman when they stayed at JFK’s suites at the Carlyle Hotel in New York, and later at the Truman home in Independence, Mo. He remembers Truman as “kind, gentle and unassuming,” and haunted by his decision to drop atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. On walks with the former president and sometimes over shots of bourbon, Gustafson recalls, Truman expressed “great anguish and concern that he had to drop the bomb. It was always on his mind.” Truman taught him several things, Gustafson said, including “walk with purpose and read several books at once. … I was wild about Harry.” Gustafson’s toils in the art world eventually brought him to Santa Fe off and on in the 1960s.

His work then included arranging exhibitions for the 1968 reopening of The Santa Fe Opera, which had burned down a year earlier. As director of the Jamison Galleries for a year, he was instrumental in introducing contemporary art to Northern New Mexico. A permanent Santa Fean since 2006 after his frequent previous encounters with the city, Gustafson continues to write books, mostly about his life hobnobbing among society’s elite and his world travels — most recently to India — and perform in the occasional play — his last in 2010 as the lead in Paul Rudnick’s The New Century at the Santa Fe Playhouse. Gustafson will read excerpts from his latest book, Last Guy Waltzing — A Colorful Tale of Reinvention, on Nov. 24 at the Collected Works Bookstore.

Coach conquers nerves in first game By Will Webber The New Mexican

ALBUQUERQUE — There’s a moment in every basketball player’s life where nerves and adrenaline converge into one seminal moment that makes the task at hand almost impossible. Apparently, UNM 87 it happens to ENMU 68 coaches, too. On Saturday night in The Pit, first-year University of New Mexico men’s basketball head coach Craig Neal felt the butterflies as he prepared to leave the Lobos’ locker room and head down to the floor for a meaningless exhibition game against Eastern New Mexico. The Lobos won 87-68 before an announced crowd of 14,153 thanks to 17 points and 16 rebounds from center Alex Kirk. They also won thanks to 43 free throw attempts as they outscored the Greyhounds 31-12 from the charity stripe. Just moments before the game started, Neal admitted he was having a hard time grasping the gravity of his first game as a college head coach. For most of his career he has

St. Michael’s extends win streak to 22 Horsemen’s all-state candidate out with injury

By Will Webber The New Mexican

ALBUQUERQUE — The main man went down, but the beat went on for the top-ranked and still unbeaten St. Michael’s football team. The Horsemen (9-0) played more than half of Saturday’s District 5AAA

opener at Albuquerque AcadAcademy 27 emy without the services of senior running back/linebacker Daniel Ortega. The all-state candidate went down with an ankle injury in the second quarter and never returned. His absence had an impact, but not enough to halt a 41-27 win at Richard Harper Memorial Field, a win that extends the St. Michael’s win streak to 22 games. It ties the school record St. Mike’s


and remains the second-longest active streak in the state behind only Santa Rosa. Academy (6-3 overall, 0-2 5AAA) took an early 6-0 lead when quarterback Devin Maez capped the game’s opening drive by tossing a 4-yard touchdown pass to Ramiro CarvajalMarquez. The Horsemen (9-0, 1-0) rattled off the next 21 points and never trailed again. Nathanyal Leyba had a 19-yard scoring run to give St. Michael’s a 7-6 lead,

then Keith Dominguez connected with Isaiah Dominguez on a 69-yard touchdown pass early in the second quarter. Ortega rounded out the first half, scoring with a 10-yard run with 7:52 left in the quarter, but he was injured on the team’s next series when he was tackled around the neck and fell awkwardly to the grass. “Basically he wasn’t able to tolerate the pain, which is why we took him

Florida St. clobbers Hurricanes By Kareem Copeland The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Jameis Winston threw for 325 yards, and No. 3 Florida State rolled to a 41-14 victory against No. 7 Miami in another matchup of undefeated Atlantic Coast Conference rivals that turned into a Seminoles’ blowout. Winston threw two interceptions in the first half after throwing Florida St. 41 four in the first Miami 14 seven games, but the Florida State defense shut out the Hurricanes (7-1, 3-1) in the second half after it was 21-14 at the break. The Seminoles (8-0, 6-0) went on a 20-0 run after a skirmish broke out midway through the third quarter. The two teams were called for offsetting personal fouls, and James Wilder Jr. scored on a 5-yard run on the next play. The rout was on from that point, not much different from Florida State’s 51-14 win at Clemson last month. The Seminoles have handily defeated all three Top 25 teams they played this season. Their national championship hopes are alive and well with Florida being the last real challenge in the regular season. “Just like baseball, sometimes you go out there and strike out,” Winston said. “Then you’ve got to come back and bounce back.” The teams seemed ready for a civil outing when they lined up before the game to shake hands. Outside of a little trash-talk, there wasn’t much fury between the two teams separated by 500 miles. Both were flagged for offsetting personal fouls midway through the third quarter when pushes and shoves were exchanged. Florida State right tackle Bobby Hart was chewed out by coach Jimbo Fisher for getting involved with Miami defensive end Anthony Chickillo. Wilder scored on a 5-yard touchdown run on the next snap, and the Seminoles were energized. Miami’s night was all but over at that point. Freeman ran for 81 yards and two touchdowns against his hometown team.

Santa Fe Prep edges Ruidoso to advance to quarterfinals By Edmundo Carrillo The New Mexican


soccer match lasts 80 minutes, but the No. 5 Santa Fe Preparatory boys soccer team only needed 20 to beat No. 12 Ruidoso 3-1 and advance to the Class A-AAA quarterfinals next week in Albuquerque. The Blue Griffins will take on District 2A-AAA rival and fourth-seeded Monte del Sol at 3:15 p.m. Thursday at the Albuquerque Public Schools Soccer Complex.

After a scoreless first half, Prep’s Wyeth Carpenter found the back of the net four minutes into the second for a 1-0 lead. “Keenan played a great ball in, and I got it, saw the keeper coming out, made a little move to the left and put it away,” Carpenter said. Nine minutes later, Sam Brill added another goal for 2-0. In the 60th minute, Brill found teammate Gabe Purvis, who knocked in Prep’s final goal to give it a 3-0 lead. After going scoreless for 44 minutes, the Blue Griffins (14-6) scored three goals in 16 minutes.

The Warriors, the final team to make the tournament with the 12-seed, held on to hope that they could pull off the upset until struggling for that short stretch. “We came in knowing that we would have a chance,” Ruidoso head coach Aaron Romero said. “We did a good job for 60 minutes, but the match is 80.” “Soccer is one of those games where you just have to be patient,” Prep head coach Hersch Wilson said. “We knew that if we just played our game, the goals would start stacking up, and that’s what happened.” The Blue Griffins might have been a little too patient in the first half, as they allowed the

Escalante No. 2 seed in playoffs SCOREBOARD The New Mexican

Escalante will represent District 1A in the Class A state football playoffs. The defending state champion, though, will not have a district partner this postseason. The Lobos were the only team from 1A to advance to the playoffs on Saturday, as the New Mexico Activities Association released the six-team bracket. Escalante is the No. 2 seed and will get a bye for the first round. The Lobos’ opponent, though, will be a familiar one. They will face either No. 6 Fort Sumner, which beat the Lobos 33-32 on Oct. 11, or No. 3 Capitan, the team that lost to Escalante in the A championship last November. Questa, which finished second in the district at 1-1 and 4-4 overall, did not make the field. In hindsight, the Wildcats’ 50-0 loss to Escalante last week

The Elkettes ended the District 2AAA season with a perfect 10-0 mark after a convincing 25-12, 25-12, 25-14 win in Ben Lujan Gymnasium. Everything Pojoaque head coach Eric Zamora hoped to see earlier in the season was on display for the finale. The back row of Kyra Romero, Joylynn Martinez and Micah Espinosa was strong, as Martinez had a team-high 20 digs and Espinosa added 10. Their passes set up Sofia Lucero to dish 44 assists. “That’s a pretty good number, when you think about it,”

District 2AAA meet

Ruidoso’s David Aguirre, left, and Santa Fe Prep’s Eric White race for the ball during the first half of Saturday’s game at Brennand Field. JANE PHILLIPS/THE NEW MEXICAN

Patience: Ruidoso scores in final minute Continued from Page D-1 Warriors (9-10) to take a few good shots at goalkeeper Diego Perea without challenging the Warriors on their end. Once the second half started, the Blue Griffins picked up their pace and started to play the style that they’re used to. “We just didn’t have the tempo we wanted, and we weren’t playing with the speed that we needed to,” Carpenter said. “We played as a team better in the second half. We were more cohesive, we were looking off the ball, we were looking

for runs off the ball, and that’s how the first and second goals both got scored. Once you start scoring, it’s a little hard to stop. I guess we just got on a roll and continued with it.” Ruidoso broke through in the final minute when Carlos Perea scored on a free kick from near midfield to make it 3-1. Now, the Blue Griffins have a date in the state quarterfinals with the Dragons, and it should be a taught, defensive-oriented battle. The teams split by identical 1-0 scores during the district season.

After Saturday’s match, the Blue Griffins think they have discovered a recipe for success against the Dragons. “We have to play as a team like we did today, and I don’t see why we can’t win it,” Carpenter said. GIRLS SOCCER NO. 7 SANTA FE PREPARATORy 2, NO. 10 REhOBOTh 1 Brigid Quinn scored a goal in the 72nd minute to lift the Blue Griffins over Rehoboth to advance to the A-AAA quarterfinals against No. 2 St. Michael’s

at 9 a.m. Thursday. Quinn also scored in the 25th minute from a direct kick outside the box to tie the score at 1-1. “Brigid made it happen for us,” Prep head coach Marina Schachowskoj said. The Blue Griffins will now play the Lady Horsemen for the third time this season, with the Lady Horsemen winning the first two matches 3-0. Regardless, Shachowskoj is looking forward to the idea of playing the 2A-AAA champions yet again. “It’s always fun playing a rival at state,” she said.

Capital: Enrollment hit hard at St. Pius Continued from Page D-1 con said. “I kind of got late to the pass because I thought I was offside. I looked to the line judge and saw that I wasn’t, so I just ran with hope that I would catch the ball, and I barely chipped it and it went over the goalie and into the goal.” Perez added the final goal in the 61st minute to set Capital up with No. 4 Los Lunas on Thursday at 11:15 a.m. at the Albuquerque Public Schools Soccer Complex in the AAAA quarterfinals. The Tigers are the next roadblock for the Jaguars in their pursuit of a coveted state championship, something they have had their eyes on since the start of the season. “We know Los Lunas is going

to be hard, but hopefully we win and then go all the way,” Alarcon said. While Capital may be a program on the rise, St. Pius is moving in the opposite direction. After years of almost being a guarantee in the state championship, this year’s squad barely made the tournament. Fourthyear head coach Ron Allen said the Sartans’ slide can be traced to problems outside of soccer. “The last four or five years with dropping enrollment and the change in athletic issues around our school, we struggle for our numbers and with athletes,” he said. “But my experience in 31 years is to just be happy with what you got.” Although enrollment has been hit hard at St. Pius, Allen

still thought he had the numbers to beat Capital. As a matter of fact, he thought his team was good enough to win another championship. “I thought we had enough to be able to upset this group tonight,” he said. “We thought we could come in as a 12-seed and make history and get into the finals. That was our belief.” While the Sartans won’t be making history, Capital is glad they stopped by. The Jaguars think an extra match will help them with the Tigers on Thursday. “It’s better to not sit out the first week of state because then we need to get our chemistry together again,” Alarcon said. “I think this match was good for us.”

GIRLS SOCCER NO. 12 SANTA FE hIGh 3, NO. 5 LOS LUNAS 0 The Demonettes (13-7) scored three goals in the span of 15 minutes to upset the Lady Tigers on their home turf and move on to a AAAA quarterfinals match with No. 4 Albuquerque Academy on Thursday at 6 p.m. at the APS Soccer Complex. After a scoreless tie at halftime, Elena Lemus scored in the 55th minute, Michelle Parry in the 62nd and Bryanna Garcia in the 70th. “We finally started converting,” Santa Fe High head coach Keith Richards said. “We had a lot of opportunities and the girls stayed persistent.”

Ohio State, Michigan State in control of Big Ten The Associated Press

No. 4 Ohio State laid another beating on an overmatched conference foe, and No. 24 Michigan State took control of the Big Ten’s other division with a rout of Michigan. The Buckeyes, coming off 49-point victory over Penn State, crushed Purdue 56-0 in West Lafayette, Ind. Ohio State has won 21 straight and has been far and away the Big Ten’s most impressive team. The Buckeyes appear to be cruising toward a Leaders Division title and their first Big Ten title game. They have a one-game lead over Wisconsin, a team they’ve already beaten, and have games left against Illinois, Indiana and Michigan. Michigan State and the nation’s No. 1 defense were even more impressive. The Spartans pummeled their rivals 29-6 in East Lansing, Mich., and have a game and a half lead in the Legends Division. Michigan State plays second-place Nebraska in two weeks. The Huskers kept pace by beating Northwestern 27-24 on a last-play touchdown pass. nO. 4 OhiO STaTe 56, PURDUe 0 In West Lafayette, Ind., Doran Grant picked off Purdue’s first pass, returning it for a touchdown, and Braxton Miller threw for 233 yards and four touchdowns as Ohio State extended the nation’s longest winning streak to 21. The Buckeyes (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten) have not lost in 22 months. Coach Urban Meyer also won his 22nd straight game, tying a personal best established at Florida. Ohio State scored the most points and produced the most lopsided scoring margin in the 56-game history of this series. Both topped the marks

The Tigers (8-1, 4-1 SEC) responded smartly a week after squandering a 17-point cushion in the fourth quarter of a doubleovertime loss to South Carolina. Andrew Baggett banged another chip-shot field goal attempt off the left goalpost, eerily similar to his game-ending misfire a week earlier, but instead of heartbreak they still took a 24-3 cushion into halftime.

Michigan State (8-1, 5-0 Big Ten) has won five of the last six meetings with the Wolverines, and this was the Spartans’ most lopsided win in the series since 1967. They held Michigan (6-2,

2-2) to minus-48 yards rushing, the worst output in the Ann Arbor program’s history. Connor Cook threw for a touchdown and ran for one, but this game belonged to Michigan State’s defense, which solidified its spot among the nation’s best with an overwhelming performance on a rainy afternoon at Spartan Stadium. nO. 8 aUBURn 35, aRKanSaS 17 In Fayetteville, Ark., Tre Mason rushed for 168 yards and four touchdowns as Auburn earned first-year coach Gus Malzahn a win in his return to Arkansas.

SAN DIEGO — Adam Muema rushed for a season-high 233 yards and three touchdowns as San Diego State held on for a 35-30 victory San Diego St. 35 over New Mexico UNM 30 Saturday night. San Diego State (4-4, 3-1 Mountain West) never trailed as Quinn Kaehler found Ezell Ruffin for a 75-yard score on the first play from scrimmage, but New Mexico (2-6, 0-4) was never far behind. Kaehler hooked up again with Ruffin

The Lobos kept the game close as Crusoe Gongbay and Teriyon Gipson each added second half touchdowns. Trailing 35-23 with 1:50 to play, backup quarterback Clayton Mitchem went 4 of 4 to lead to the Lobos 71 yards to cut the lead to 35-30. San Diego State recovered the ensuing onside kick before running out the clock. New Mexico showed a balanced attack, throwing for 170 yards to augment a

253-yard rushing attack against an Aztecs defense that allowed just 124.9 yards per contest coming into the game. Cole Gautsche was 6-for-16 for 101 yards, while Mitchem threw for 69 yards on his four completions on the final scoring drive. Kasey Carrier led the Lobos with 72 yards on 10 carries, while Gongbay added 66 to go with an 18-yard touchdown with 2:07 left in the third to get the Lobos to within 21-7. Gipson had 45 yards and two touchdowns, with the first coming with 3:04 left in the first half on a 20-yard jaunt that cut a 14-0 deficit in half.

NFL Week 9

By John Boell Newsday

VIKINGS (1-6) at COWBOYS (4-4) Line: Cowboys by 10 Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: With all the talk about whether Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is selfish and not a good teammate, most of us forgot one thing: Dallas is one of the NFL’s worst late-game teams. Why couldn’t Dallas put away a game in which it led by 10 points with under seven minutes left last week in Detroit? The Cowboys are the first team to lose a game in which it held a +4 turnover margin this season (the previous 10 teams won). No matter who starts at QB for the Vikings, I think they’ll play good enough defense and run the ball well enough to keep this one close. THE PICK: VIKINGS

SAINTS (6-1) at JETS (4-4) Line: Saints by 6 Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: Ouch! That’s all I kept thinking as I watched “Gag” Green endure a 49-9 loss to Cincinnati. Rex Ryan said that his Jets had to move on and turn their focus to New Orleans. They better, or this one could get ugly, too! I agree with Rex that the Jets aren’t as bad as their 40-point loss indicates. I just don’t think they are in the class of the Saints, one of the NFL’s best. Ryan said if his vaunted ‘D’ plays like it did last week, Saints QB Drew Brees could throw for 700 yards. We doubt that, but he could notch another of his fiveTD games like he did for an NFLrecord eighth time last week. The Saints are 15-6 against the spread (ATS) in their last 21 games following a win. Brother Rob — and the better ‘D’ — prevails. THE PICK: SAINTS

CHIEFS (8-0) at BILLS (3-5) Line: Chiefs by 3 Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: Kansas City is 4-11 ATS in its last 15 games vs. losing teams while Buffalo is 6-0 ATS in its last six games after a loss. Call it a hunch. THE PICK: BILLS

FALCONS (2-5) at PANTHERS (4-3) Line: Panthers by 7½ Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: Why do I keep going back to the Falcons? This reminds me of the time I asked a girl to my senior prom a year after she had shot down my offer for the junior prom. (I was 0-for-2.). Atlanta is 10-4 ATS in its last 14 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. THE PICK: FALCONS

CHARGERS (4-3) at REDSKINS (2-5) Line: Chargers by 1 Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: This amounts to a “must-win” for Washington. Normally, I’m not big on taking West Coast teams playing East Coast games at 1 p.m. But the Bolts have won at Jacksonville and Philly this season. THE PICK: CHARGERS

to score a late TD to stun Seattle on Monday Night, Tennessee is rested after a bye. It’s also 6-2 ATS in its last eight games. THE PICK: TITANS

EAGLES (3-5) at RAIDERS (3-4) Line: Raiders by 2½ Time: 2:05 p.m. Bottom line: I cringe every time I see the words “Eagles and Raiders” in the same sentence. In 1980, when I was 7, I enjoyed one of the Iggles’ best seasons, only to watch them lose to the Raiders in Super Bowl XV. I’ll admit it, I cried. But this Sunday, it will be this edition of the Eagles who are crying after another loss. THE PICK: RAIDERS

BUCS (0-7) at SEAHAWKS (7-1) Line: Seahawks by 16½ Time: 2:05 p.m. Bottom line: Seattle has lost three of its last four when it was a double-digit favorite. That said, it is 11-4 ATS in its last 15 overall, and a solid 35-15-1 ATS in its last 51 at home. THE PICK: SEAHAWKS

RAVENS (3-4) at BROWNS (3-5) Line: Ravens by 2½ Time: 2:25 p.m. Bottom line: Ravens QB Joe Flacco and coach John Harbaugh have never lost to Cleveland and have won 10 in a row vs. the Browns. The Ravens have covered five straight in Cleveland. THE PICK: RAVENS

STEELERS (2-5) at PATRIOTS (6-2) Line: Patriots by 6½ Time: 2:25 p.m. Bottom line: I’ll follow two trends: Pittsburgh is 10-4 ATS in its last 14 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. The Patriots are 1-4 ATS in their last five games following a cover. THE PICK: STEELERS

COLTS (5-2) at TEXANS (2-5) Line: Colts by 2½ Time: 6:30 p.m. Bottom line: Indy had the benefit of a bye week to rework its receivers after Reggie Wayne went down. Things continue to be grim in Houston as QB Matt Schaub has lost his job to Case Keenum. This line opened with the Texans as a 11/2-point favorite, and seems too good to be true, so tread softly. THE PICK: COLTS MONDAY NIGHT

BEARS (4-3) at PACKERS (5-2)

TITANS (3-4) at RAMS (3-5)

Line: Packers by 10½ Time: 6:40 p.m. Bottom line: This is the lone Week 9 game with both teams over .500. The Bears won’t have QB Jay Cutler, but I think they’ll keep it close enough. THE PICK: BEARS

Line: Titans by 3 Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: While St. Louis might still be reeling from failing

BYE WEEK: Arizona, Denver, Detroit, Jacksonville, N.Y. Giants, San Francisco

No more trade talk

because something special might happen with the NFL’s top two returners statistically squaring off. Minnesota rookie Cordarrelle Patterson is the leader at 39.1 yards per return with two touchdowns, from 105 and a leaguerecord 109 yards. Dwayne Harris has a 35.7-yard average, and though he hasn’t scored, he took one back 90 yards to set up a touchdown against Washington. He also had an 86-yard

punt return for a score in that game.

‘Other’ OU running back DeMarco Murray, who took a redshirt year during Peterson’s final season at Oklahoma, could return for the Cowboys after missing two games with a ligament sprain in his left knee. Once again, the Dallas running game has struggled without him. Joseph Randle

Defensive end Jared Allen can focus entirely on football again after he was the subject of trade rumors before the deadline passed without a move. Allen and Dallas’ DeMarcus Ware have the most sacks in the league since 2004, the year Allen entered the league. Ware was a rookie in 2005. Allen has 121 1-2 sacks to 115 for Ware, who missed the past two games — the first of his nine-year career — with a right quadriceps injury. He probably will be a game-time decision.

Dez drama Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant was last seen in a shouting match with tight end Jason Witten at the end of the crushing loss to Detroit. Audio released by the NFL showing an animated exchange with Romo from earlier in the game proved Bryant’s contention that he was just trying to pump up his team. So the focus goes back to football, and Bryant has been pretty good. He’s tied for the NFC lead with eight touchdowns through the air.

star-studded defense that recently was bolstered by the return of All-Pro linebacker Von Miller from a suspension. Their next game is Nov. 10 against AFC West foe San Diego. Although it hasn’t been determined who will serve as interim head coach during Fox’s absence, defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio is a logical choice because he spent nine seasons as the Jacksonville Jaguars’ head coach before joining Fox’s staff last season. Smyth said Fox was with a group of friends and family on a golf course near his offseason home when he started getting dizzy. He said Fox was “in good spirits and he told me he did not suffer a heart attack.” Running back C.J. Anderson was among the players who sent their well wishes on Twitter, saying, “Prayers go out 2 Fox we here coach.”

Streak: Final minutes big for Chargers Continued from Page D-1 out,” said Horsemen head coach Joey Fernandez. “It doesn’t look that bad. He’ll play next week.” St. Michael’s closes out the regular season at home next weekend against Albuquerque Hope Christian with the District 5AAA title on the line. Ortega needs just one touchdown to equal the school’s single-season touchdown record of 31. He currently has 30, 26 of which have come on rushing

attempts. “Honestly, I thought Daniel not being out had more of an impact on defense,” Isaiah Dominguez said. “[Academy] kept driving the ball on us, but I felt their drives kept going a little longer once Daniel went out.” The Chargers scored 14 of their 27 points in the game’s final 21/2 minutes. They got within 21-13 in the closing seconds of the third quarter when Ian Russell scored on a short run, but the Horsemen answered right back with a 67-yard drive that took just

four plays. It was capped by a TD pass to Leyba. Isaiah Dominguez essentially iced the game with 2:52 remaining in the fourth quarter when, while lining up at fullback, he burst through the Academy defensive line and raced 51 yards to the end zone to open a commanding 34-13 lead. Leyba sandwiched a 24-yard touchdown run between the Chargers’ two late scores. With Ortega out, Leyba took most of his reps at running back while Isaiah

Dominguez did the bulk of his work after sliding from his spot at tight end to the fullback’s position. Dominguez suffered an injury of his own during the game when a helmet-to-helmet hit opened a cut below his eye. “When someone gets hurt on this team,” he said, “there really isn’t anyone panicking. Guys just move over to take new spots. We’ve done that all year, so when Daniel got hurt, I don’t think anyone really said anything on the sideline.”

When the NMAA unveiled potential districts for next year, Santa Fe High was in a district that included Rio Rancho, Rio Rancho Cleveland, Cibola and Volcano Vista. Three of the four schools are among the six biggest in the state. As for the small schools, Mora head boys basketball coach James Branch was not surprised the school stayed in AA. He was happy to hear Peñasco and Mesa Vista are in AA as well, meaning some key rivalries will stay intact. The NMAA indicated in February those three schools would be included with McCurdy, Escalante and Questa. The downside for Branch, though, would be the loss of long-time district rival Pecos and a budding rival in Santa Fe Preparatory. “That is the greatest drawback,” Branch said. “Them and Prep, since we had developed a good rivalry with them in time. But to still have rivalries with Mesa Vista, Peñasco and Questa is nice.”

Atlanta museum exhibit displays perceptions of West By Kate Brumback The Associated Press

ATLANTA — Atlanta’s High Museum of Art is hosting an exhibition about the American West and how perceptions of the land and its people — both the natives and the settlers — evolved over time. The exhibition, Go West! Art of the American Frontier from the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, includes more than 250 paintings, sculptures, photos, firearms and Native American artifacts. The works cover the century from 1830 to 1930, ranging from images of Buffalo Bill and the tribal chief Sitting Bull, to landscape paintings and a sculpture of a bucking bronco rider by Frederic Remington. Go West! opens Sunday at the High, the only venue where it will be shown, and runs through April 13. The works are on loan from Buffalo Bill Center of the West, a museum and cultural center in Cody, Wyo. The earliest artists represented in the show were traveling to a place most Americans of their era would never see. They aimed to give the curious public an idea of what native people and landscapes looked like. But many portrayals created “popular perceptions of the West” that were “different from how the West actually was,” said Stephanie Heydt, curator of American art for the High. “These paintings aren’t documents as much as they are impressions from artists trying to make sense of this place that was unknown to their audiences,” Heydt said. “It was such a changing place with so much going on.” The exhibition illustrates conflicting and evolving representations of Native Americans, including romantic ideas of noble savages that would fade into history, menacing enemies defeated by heroic cowboys and later, nostalgic depictions of roving tribes and fierce warriors. But few artists showed Native Americans as they actually were, Heydt said. One who did was Laton A. Huffman, a photographer who lived in Montana and often went to a reservation to shoot portraits that were straightforward rather than sentimental, Heydt said. Native American artifacts on display are primarily ornately decorated functional items, like shoes, clothes and bags, as well as an impressive eagle feather headdress and bear-claw necklace. The exhibition also features posters, photos and film footage from Buffalo Bill’s Wild West traveling show, which toured 10 countries over three decades, along with photos of Buffalo Bill Cody, Annie Oakley and Sitting Bull. Displayed in a glass case are a rifle used by Oakley and a pair of six-shooter guns owned by Cody. Paintings and Remington’s bronze sculpture of a man riding a bucking horse, titled The Bronco Buster, capture the iconic cowboy. Originally a sheep rancher from Kansas, Remington was fascinated by and identified with these rough-and-tumble figures early in his artistic career. Later on, he turned to the scenery, painting many small-scale landscape studies as inspiration for other work back in his studio. N.C. Wyeth worked on a ranch for several weeks in 1904 and illustrated a published account of his visit with paintings of a cattle roundup.

future is in jeopardy. She reacts by taking an uncharacteristic action in “Dissolution.” Madeleine Stowe and Nick Wechsler also star. 8 p.m. on CBS The Good Wife Alicia and Cary (Julianna Margulies, Matt Czuchry) have a client who’s left Lockhart/ Gardner for their new firm, but they have a difficult time getting Will and Diane (Josh Charles, Christine Baranski) to turn over the case files. Alicia gets some advice from Peter’s (Chris Noth) ethics counsel, Marilyn Garbanza (Melissa George). Alan Cumming and Archie Panjabi also star in the new episode “The Next Day.”





9 p.m. on CBS The Mentalist Is this the season when the identity of Red John will be revealed? Series star Simon Baker, who plays uber-observant criminal investigator Patrick Jane, isn’t telling. We can, however, tell you that in this new episode, Jane embarks on a journey that might — just might — lead to his unmasking the serial killer who took the lives of his wife and child. Robin Tunney also stars in “Fire and Brimstone.”

The painting Yellowstone Falls, dating back to 1881 by Albert Bierstadt, is displayed Thursday as part of the exhibition, Go West! Art of the American Frontier from the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. DAVID GOLDMAN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

wear, on Sept. 1. “Next month we have Olive Grove, olive oil and balsamic vinegar tastings and sales. And hopefully by the end of next month, Old Wood LLC. David Old has a huge connection with the project. This used to be the Hancock-Old Desoto Plymouth dealership, so there’s a family connection. And he has provided all the timbers for the benches, the balcony deck, and so forth. Everything he does is timber harvested from forest fires and bark-beetle kill. This will be a showroom for his wood flooring.” Joseph is finalizing negotiations with Tecolote Cafe. “They have great spirit, such a cool vibe. We also have under letter of intent a woman who had a Persian restaurant, also serving espresso and panini, in Cincinnati and she’s moving here.” He expects a fairly large law firm to come in by Jan. 1. That just leaves one retail space downstairs and three units upstairs. DeVargas Center manager Katy Fitzgerald hopes that Denice Sherwin will open her Life Vessel business by year’s end next to Renewal By Anderson. “She’s moving the business from Aldea, and she will have a cafe, raw bar and spa.” As far as other future prospects at the

mall, Fitzgerald said, “There’s nothing solid I can talk about yet, but a lot of very exciting things are coming.” Last spring, the owners of Packard’s on the Plaza announced plans to close the store after nearly 70 years. The new owners are Scott and Karen Malouf. Neighbor ACC also closed its store on the Plaza, consolidating the fine-furnishings business at its other store at 620 Cerrillos Road. Coming into the ACC space in July was Workshop; the affiliate of Santa Fe Dry Goods shows newer, more casual clothing designs. The bike shop Mellow Velo moved to 132 E. Marcy St. from Old Santa Fe Trail, where it had been for six years, in the springtime. An Ashley Furniture showroom is under construction across Cerrillos Road (and Camino Entrada) from the new Mercedes-Benz of Santa Fe and Smart car dealerships. Ashley was founded in 1945 in Arcadia, Wis. Five years ago, the company passed Wal-Mart to become the country’s top retailer of furniture and bedding. Santa Fe’s sixth stand-alone Starbucks store opened this summer at 4980 Promenade Blvd., on the Las Soleras development site. (Starbucks now has 10 locations in Santa Fe if you

count the coffee nooks at Target and the three Albertsons stores.) The city of Santa Fe moved more than 50 employees from the Joseph Montoya Federal Building to Market Station in the Santa Fe Railyard. “They’re occupying about half of the 22,000 square feet the city bought,” said Richard Czoski of the Santa Fe Railyard Community Corporation. In the same building, Ringside Entertainment is about 90 percent complete on 8,000 square feet above the Flying Star Restaurant. “They’re hoping to open in late November. It will be an eight-lane bowling alley, a bar and restaurant, and smaller rooms for kids’ parties,” Czoski said. Marvelous Hair Design opened up next to Flying Star. Construction drawings should now be complete for the Violet Crown cineplex just south of Market Station. Work should commence in midJanuary, and Czoski is hoping for completion by Thanksgiving 2014. “This is 32,000 square feet on two floors, one underground; the top of the building will be 28 feet above grade. It will be 11 auditoriums — eight of them below ground. The original plan by Maya Cinema was for 2,000 seats; this one will be 750 seats, so it’s a substantially smaller building.”

Violet Crown will also have a 4,400-square-foot restaurant (including beer and wine), which can be accessed independently from the cinema. Moviegoers will have four hours of free parking, courtesy of the nonprofit Santa Fe Railyard Community Corporation. A new sign going up on Cerrillos Road near Baca Street is intended to “reinforce the public perception that the Baca area is part of the Santa Fe Railyard,” he said. The sign will be installed by stonemasons using rough-worked sandstone that once lined locomotive-maintenance troughs in the railyard. It would be good if there could be a little plaque on something like this telling people where that stone came from. “Someday, when we’ve paid off some of the debt, there are many things we’d like to do,” Czoski responded. “We’re paying off $14 million of infrastructure.” In that Baca area of the Railyard, Recollections has leased the next-door parcel and will do an addition. A building there that previously was used by Ferrellgas, La Puerta and Mexico Lindo was demolished in July. The new 182-room Drury Hotel at the corner of Paseo de Peralta and E. Palace Avenue should be completed in April.

This is an adaptive-reuse project at the old John Gaw Meemdesigned St. Vincent Hospital, plus an addition on the south side and a new parking garage. Recent work has included the replacement of more than 320 windows, substantial brickwork in the new construction — including some ornamentalbrickwork panels on the garage done in sympathy with similar panels Meem designed on the East Palace façade of the hospital — and a new coat of earthtone paint. A highlight Greek Revival doorway on East Palace Avenue (complete with squared pilasters, acanthus-leaf capitals and modillion pediment) is being preserved and will again be a functional door. (It was boarded up during use by state agencies in the 2000s.) Drury also will repair or replace the fat, turned fence pickets along Palace. “There are quite a few interesting details Meem did within the limited budget he had to work with, and we want to preserve them.” Work continues in the New Mexico School for the Deaf’s improvement plan. “We have widened the front sidewalk for safety, and we’re also rebuilding the front wall and redoing the entrance gates and parking, and we’ll be planting trees,” said the school’s spokeswoman, Keri-Lynn McBride. “Last year we renovated Dillon Hall, and now we’re making over the basement to house our health center, our statewide programs division and the transportation office. We are in the process of building a new library/ museum behind Dillon Hall, with Dekker/Perich/Sabatini Architects and Bradbury Stamm, the contractor on all of these projects. Everything should be done by the beginning of the new school year next August.” Richard Cook has begun a very large project at the western edge of the Tierra Contenta subdivision. Infrastructure work involves an extension of Jaguar Drive to N.M. 599, building an interchange there and providing a new entrance to the Santa Fe airport. After that comes the first phase of building construction. “That is the Village Plaza at Tierra Contenta on the east side of N.M. 599, and that will include a grocery store, service station and other uses,” said Scott Hoeft of the Santa Fe Planning Group. On the west side of N.M. 599, Cook will develop the Santa Fe Commercial Center, an office park of about a million square feet, with a 20-year horizon. There’s not much new on the commercial front in Tierra Contenta proper. James Hicks of the Tierra Contenta Corporation pointed out the new coffee shop and panaderia (bakery) El Dulce Hogar in Plaza Contenta. And there is a new K-8 school being built in the subdivision’s southeast quadrant. “We talked to the contractor this morning,” he said on Oct. 23, “and they plan to be finished by the start of school in 2014.” The school will be at the corner of Herrera Drive and Paseo del Sol.

un, new places to eat good food are always positives in any report about the commercial real estate market in Santa Fe. So it is with watering mouths that we anticipate Brian Knox’s new endeavor, Shake. at 631 Cerrillos Road. The first question is, when will it open? (Unless it already opened since this was written.) Second, what to order? A great hamburger, lamb burger or fried-oyster sandwich with hand-cut fries? Or maybe the green chile stew, or a griddled frankfurter? Then there are the Taos Cow milkshakes, raspberry pie and natillas. … Yum! By the time we publish, Santa Fe’s third Señor Murphy’s location will have been open for a week in a newly remodeled DeVargas Center space that was long occupied by Zale’s Jewelry. Your pets will appreciate Marty’s Meals, which opened in late May at 1107 Pen Road. The business offers “raw and gently cooked menus,” the entrées including local grassfed lamb, wild boar, bison and kangaroo. The third New Mexico location of Thai Vegan opened in October at 1710 Cerrillos Road. Dara Thai Restaurant was formerly at this location. A little farther south, at 2860 Cerrillos, is Dr. Field Goods Kitchen, featuring “your favorite rockin’ fresh New Mexico Fusion.” On Zafarano Drive, Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar and Panera Bread opened in the late spring (the latter in the building that formerly housed Osaka Grill and Seafood). Ulta Beauty moved into the smaller of the city’s two vacant Border’s books buildings, this one at Plaza Santa Fe. The U.S. Postal Service has talked about moving its downtown operation into the other, much larger, former Border’s space at Sanbusco Center. If that happens, Noemi deBodisco might like to see her op.cit. books located at the front. She wanted to move to the new Luna project at 505 Cerrillos Road, but found a temporary place at Sanbusco. “Luna is way behind schedule, and Sanbusco has been so nice to us. We are just so lucky. We’ve been doing very well here,” deBodisco said. She also bought the Las Vegas, N.M., bookshop Home on the Range at the end of June. “I’m still trying to get her to move in,” Luna developer Ken Joseph said recently. “She was upset about the construction delays, and I can’t really blame her, but I have her space ready.” He said Luna is coming together. “Slower construction than I’d like, but marketing is going very well.” Ohori’s Coffee opened last November, Talin Market came to Luna in February, and Violet Santikos opened Cassie’s Boutique, offering yoga and fitness

The bidding wars



Horoscope HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Nov. 3, 2013: This year you will have unusual energy swings. A realization will occur involving your career or a relationship that will point you in a new direction. The whole saga will take a year to complete. You often push very hard to have your way. In the next 12 months, you will see the futility of that behavior. If you are single, you could meet someone quite spectacular. Take your time getting to know this person. If you are attached, the two of you will see a life goal manifest itself. The path to your desire might be very different from what you had anticipated. Scorpio might be far more intense than you realize. The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH You can express your feelings any way that you want, but ultimately a friend will respond only when he or she is ready. Look at the issue at hand, and see if there is a more effective way of handling the problem. If so, follow through. Tonight: Chat with loved ones.

This Week: Be willing to break past a self-imposed restriction. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH You might sense that there are changes ahead, and you might not have as much control as you would like. Know that you only have control over yourself. Honor where someone is coming from, and don’t try to change this person’s mood. Tonight: Go along with someone’s wishes. This Week: Good news heads your way. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH You might want some kind of change to happen in your life in order to feel reinvigorated. You could be looking at making an adjustment to your schedule, trying a new exercise program or learning a new sport or hobby. Avoid creating uproar. Tonight: Slow down. This Week: Weigh the pros and cons of a risk that could hit your wallet hard. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Your creativity is high, yet your nurturing qualities and emotional nature seek selfexpression. Make time for your family, and pursue an activity

that they would love. If you are single, you might be seeing a change in status. Tonight: Only with someone you love. This Week: An event midweek could have you heading in a new direction. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH You might look back on this period and realize that you made some important decisions regarding real estate and your home. Make sure you are not overreacting and making snap judgments. Allow yourself a lot of space to evaluate each decision. Tonight: Order in. This Week: Let your creativity emerge. Take a risk if you feel good about it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH You could be out of sorts and wondering what is important. You might feel drained by today’s eclipse. As a result, you could be somewhat accidentprone. Try not to put yourself in a situation where you could cause yourself a problem. Tonight: Hang out with a friend. This Week: You could find a long-term desire that is worth evaluating. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH You can’t be too careful with your finances. Hold off on making any commitments or purchases for a while. You easily could make a mistake or buy a faulty item. You might not like restrictions, but that would be best for now. Tonight: Whatever makes you happy. This Week: Be ready for feedback about a job or your career.

New York Times Sunday Crossword

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHH Today’s eclipse might be making you feel hyper. Know that the element of instability that might result from your energy is likely to be elsewhere, too. Enjoy yourself, but remember that nothing is set in stone. Tonight: Till the wee hours. This Week: Look beyond the obvious. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You could be ready for a swift change or a new development. However, for right now, it would be best to play it low-key. Keep a discussion tame. If you lose control, there could be longterm ramifications. Tonight: Get some extra zzz’s. This Week: You are on a roll this week. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH A loved one is the bearer of good news. Don’t hesitate to get together or have a chat with this person. A group of friends could be changing. Understand that you might be changing, too. What seemed OK might not be. Tonight: Where the fun is. This Week: Say “yes” to a friend. This person needs your attention. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH A situation demands all of your attention. You might feel like you have no choice as long as you want the status quo to continue. Do you? You are in a period of hard reflection. Tonight: Could go till the wee hours. This Week: An opportunity drops on you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Jump in your car, and take a day drive or go visit a friend in the country. You’ll feel reenergized once you move out of your immediate area. When you detach, you will start changing your opinions and gain a new perspective of your life. Tonight: Continue the escape. This Week: Your creativity adds to a relationship. Go with the moment.

Scratch pad

love eBay. I particularly love the online flea market for its irrepressible anarchy. For $12 you can get Hermann Scherchen’s classic recording of Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 in C-sharp Minor, or you can get a clock that farts the hour. Like most of the Web, eBay is essentially unedited. This results in incidents of aggressively original spelling — it was not until I saw the accompanying photo that I realized “Terk Wirks jeworry” was, in fact, turquoise jewelry. Virtually anything can, and does, go up for sale, which affords a fascinating lesson in what people, value. I have watched, transfixed, as various items I thought would never sell attracted multiple bidders. One was a Gene plastic seat that converts any ordinary Weingarten pail into a toilet. Can anything find a market? One day recently, I tried to find The Washington out. I put four items up for auction: Post u My own signature. I described this item in lavish detail, as though it were Honus Wagner’s. What I did not do, because frankly there was no honest answer for this, was explain why this particular item might be of interest to anyone. u A joke. I said I was in possession of “the greatest joke ever told” and promised to reveal it to the highest bidder. “People of the opposite sex will think this the best joke they ever heard, and very possibly offer you their bodies in gratitude.” I actually had a particular joke in mind, a very strange and excellent one I had heard years ago from a professional humorist who got it from a professional stand-up comic, who never used it in his routines because it was too weird. u A piece of crap. Specifically, two items I found in my basement: a flaccid rubber sleeve that had once contained a flashlight, and a chunk of aluminum from a busted lamp. I glued them together, and took a picture. I confessed in my ad that I did not know what this item was but it was “strangely beguiling” with a “tension of design between the thin, supple rubber and the hard, unyielding aluminum.” And: u The least valuable item possible. It was the key to a Chrysler Sebring that had been rented by a friend of mine and then stolen from in front of my house. The thief had behaved in the fashion favored by idiot car thieves everywhere: He hot-wired the vehicle, drove five blocks in giddy abandon, then pancaked it against a light pole. I reported, correctly, that it had been stripped of personal belongings, including “a deluxe extension-pole grabber of extreme sentimental value to its owner.” All my friend was left with was the key to a car that no longer existed. My pitch? “Own a piece of Washington, D.C., crime history!” You are probably thinking, Who the hell would buy these things? Patty and Paul Quinzi would. The Austin couple bought the car key after a fierce week-long bidding war among six people that sent the final purchase price up to 29 cents. I emailed the Quinzis to ask why they went for it. Patty wrote back: “We, too, knew the value of a good extension-pole grabber, and felt your friend’s pain.” More than 90 people read the ad for the joke, and four bid on it. The winner, at 41 cents, was Brandi McCarn, a student at North Carolina State University. I told it to her, and she declared it well worth the money. I would tell it to you, too, but for two factors: u It would be violating my sacred eBay promise to Brandi, and u I would get canned faster than albacore tuna. The piece of crap sold for $2 to an eBayer who calls himself Kidneystone. He told me he bought it because (and I am paraphrasing here) what the hell, you know, man, like, whatever. And last, the signature. Oscar Wilde wrote that the cynic knows the price of everything but the value of nothing. Well, this cynic got a lesson in the economics of value. Thirty people eyeballed this item, weighed its worth, and not one offered even a single penny.
