Hospital announces layoffs Bruce Tassin, president and CEO of Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center, discusses hospital layoffs at his office Monday. LUIS SÁNCHEZ SATURNO/THE NEW MEXICAN
58 positions affected by Christus St. Vincent’s move to cut $4M in costs
By Bruce Krasnow The New Mexican
Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center said Monday it is eliminating 58 positions and laying off 36 employees as part of a restructuring to meet the challenges of the federal Affordable Care Act. Hospital administrators said the layoffs will stretch across all departments,
including 15 management positions. Christus St. Vincent President and CEO Bruce Tassin said the reductions will trim $4 million from the Santa Fe hospital’s payroll. The hospital, which still has 1,950 employees, ended the 2012 fiscal year on June 30, 2013, with an operating surplus of $6.3 million, about half of what is expected in an organization the

he Marble Brewery Tap Room is being forced to leave its prime position overlooking the Santa Fe Plaza. The owners — who also have a brewery and a tap room in Albuquerque — say they’ve lost their lease on their top-floor space in the Santa Fe Arcade building, 60 E. San Francisco St., and are looking for a new location. Dec. 28 will be the Santa Fe tap room’s last day in its current space. Brewmaster and co-founder Ted Rice said Monday that partners in the Marble Brewery
operation are in discussions with Peter Komis, who owns a balcony-equipped space on the opposite side of block — at 125 E. Water St. — formerly occupied by Catamount Bar and Grille. But Rice said Komis wants more than Marble’s owners were hoping to pay and Rice isn’t sure if they will be able to come to terms. Rice and partner Jeff Ginnette were mum about whether family dynamics played any role in the loss of the lease. The Santa Fe Arcade building — where Marble has been located for the past four years — is owned by Gerald Peters, whose sons Devin Peters and Soren Peters are two of the five partners in the Marble Brewery venture.
Ginnette — who worked for Peters’ Santa Fe Dining group for 17 years before leaving to devote his time to Marble Brewery — said the decision seems to be based on finances. “[Peters’] sons own part of Marble, but he can put a business that he owns all of in there. He has an opportunity to do that, so he’s going to do so,” Ginnette said. “It seems like economics. We’re on the losing end of it. We’re not happy to be leaving. We like that spot, but business is business.” The partners say they think Peters — who owns microbrewery operations including the Blue Corn Cafe & Brewery on Cerrillos Road
Senate advances gay rights bill Legislation to ban discrimination in workplace closer to passage this week

WASHINGTON — The gay rights movement won at least a preliminary victory Monday as the Senate voted to advance a measure that would ban workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The 61-30 procedural vote does not necessarily predict the final outcome, expected later this week. But statements of support from Republicans ensured that the bill known as the Employment Non-Discrimination Act could attract the necessary 60 votes to overcome any additional procedural hurdles. “This is a momentous day,” Sen.

Two of the dozen-plus New Mexico mental health providers whose Medicaid funding was frozen got their funding restored Monday after agreeing to repay the state $4.2 million for alleged improper billings, the state Human Services Department said. However, no talks are underway with any of the other providers under investigation, a department spokesman said. “No other settlements or negotiations will occur,” spokesman Matt Kennicott said. The two providers involved in Monday’s announcement are Presbyterian Medical Services, which is headquartered in Santa Fe and serves some 3,400 clients on Medicaid statewide, and Youth Development Inc., which operates in Albuquerque and Valencia County, serving about 260 Medicaid clients. PMS will repay $4 million, while YDI will repay $240,000. Kennicott said the settlements represent about 89 percent of alleged overpayments to Presbyterian Medical Services and 81 percent for Youth Development. “PMS and YDI are not among the behavioral health companies with the most serious or numerous whistleblower complaints against them,” a statement from Human Services said. The allegations against the other companies, according to Human Services, were that “employees were told to intentionally up-code services as a means of siphoning extra money out of the Medicaid system, told to bill for services never provided, or told to obstruct the reporting of critical incidents to proper authorities and regulators.” The statement also said the two companies to which funding was restored weren’t heavily involved in “complex financial relationships and potential conflicts of interest” like the other providers under investigation. But, the statement said, restoration of Medicaid funds doesn’t mean the providers have been dropped from the state Attorney General’s Office investigation into allegations raised by an auditor hired by the Human Services Department. Most of the other behavioral health companies whose funding was frozen had to shut down and their caseloads were taken over by Arizona providers under contract with the state. Both Presbyterian Medical Services and Youth Development, however, have remained open and have continued to serve their clients. Kennicott said the two have been operating on reserve funds. The news release said the two providers each “will also be subject to intensive new training and oversight of its management until billing and

NATION&WORLD Poll: Twitter faces skeptical investors By Barbara Ortutay
The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Twitter faces skepticism from potential investors and the broader public ahead of its initial public offering, according to an Associated Press-CNBC poll released Monday. Some 36 percent of Americans say buying stock in the 7-year-old short messaging service would be a good investment, while 47 percent disagree. Last May, ahead of Facebook’s IPO, 51 percent of Americans said Facebook Inc. would be a good investment. Just 31 percent didn’t agree. Twitter plans to make its Wall Street debut this week and surprisingly, 52 percent of people ages 18 to 34 say investing in the company’s stock is not a good idea. Twitter Inc. will begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange on Thursday morning after setting a price for its IPO sometime Wednesday evening. As it stands, the San Francisco-based company plans to raise as much as $1.6 billion in the process. The transaction values Twitter at as much as $12.5 billion. The Associated Press-CNBC telephone poll was conducted Oct. 25-27 by GfK Roper Public Affairs and Corporate Communications among 1,006 U.S. adults. The results have a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

CONCORD, N.H. hin paper sky lanterns, lit from inside by candles that send them floating aloft, have been popular for centuries at Asian festivals, but U.S. fire officials want them banned. The National Association of State Fire Marshals calls them uncontrolled fire hazards, because the wind decides where to deposit the lanterns, said association president and New Hampshire Fire Marshal Bill Degnan. Lanterns have ended up in trees and on tents at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, which draws tens of thousands of fans to two NASCAR races each year, he said. A fire blamed on a sky lantern at a plastic recycling plant in Britain in July caused $9 million in damage. “You have no control over where it lands,” he said. A sky lantern is essentially a small hot air balloon made of paper with an opening at the bottom where a small fire is suspended. Invented in China, the lanterns were first used as signals during
Study: 8.8 billion Earth-size planets WASHINGTON — Space is vast, but it may not be so lonely after all: A study finds the Milky Way is teeming with billions of planets that are about the size of Earth, orbit stars just like our sun, and exist in the Goldilocks zone — not too hot and not too cold for life. Astronomers using NASA data have calculated for the first time that in our galaxy alone, there are at least 8.8 billion stars with Earthsize planets in the habitable temperature zone. The study was published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.

wars. They are launched at Asian festivals for good luck and to send wishes skyward. They also are popular at weddings and remembrance ceremonies. Last year, sky lanterns were released into the night sky over Dover High School’s football field in memory of a New Hampshire combat veteran who died in a North Carolina motorcycle crash. Rob Laughton, part owner of an online retailer selling the lanterns, argues they should be regulated, not banned. He says his Dallasbased company, Wish Lanterns, has been responsive to the public and recently substituted bamboo for wire in the frame to make the lanterns biodegradable and no threat to animals who might try to eat them after they fall. “The lantern can only come down once the wick has gone out,” he said. But Degnan and other fire marshals around the country don’t
believe their safety can be guaranteed. In August, the U.S. fire marshals association adopted a resolution urging states to ban the sale and use of sky lanterns. At least two dozen states and many local jurisdictions have either banned them by law or by regulation, according to Degnan. State Sen. Nancy Stiles filed a bill to add New Hampshire to the list of states with sales bans. In December, Degnan used his authority to ban the lanterns’ release in New Hampshire under a code governing recreational fires, but he wants to block their sale as well. “Even if you tell [people] to tether them, will they?” he said. Stiles, a Hampton Republican, filed her bill at the request of Rye Fire Chief Skip Sullivan. Sullivan said fire officials want a law “primarily for the fact that when you light these and send them off, it is an open fire you’re sending off.”
restrictions has increased the chances that the issue soon will be back before the justices. The court stepped back from a dispute over a now-dead Oklahoma law to limit drug-induced abortions. But a new filing asks the justices to block new Texas restrictions that have dramatically reduced the availability of abortions in Texas. On both sides of the issue, people say it is only a matter of time before the court steps in to indicate how far states may go in regulating abortion without crossing the line the court first set out in the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that announced a woman’s right to an abortion and modified in 1992 in Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
The government said in a letter to judges presiding over Manhattan cases that the “proposed global resolution” of the criminal and civil cases against SAC Capital Advisors and related companies also includes an agreement that SAC will cease operating as an investment adviser and will not accept any additional funds from thirdparty investors.
SAC Capital to pay $1.8 billion penalty NEW YORK — SAC Capital Advisors will plead guilty to criminal fraud charges, stop investing money for others and pay $1.8 billion — the largest financial penalty in history for insider trading — to resolve criminal and civil claims against the hedge fund giant, the government announced Monday.

Ciancia, who was shot four times by airport police, remained in critical condition Monday. The FBI said Ciancia had a handwritten letter, stating that he made the conscious decision to try to kill multiple TSA officers and “instill fear in your traitorous minds.” The unemployed motorcycle had a friend drop him at LAX just moments before he opened fire.

LONDON — The elderly gentleman appeared nervous when police questioned him during a customs check aboard a train from Switzerland to Germany. He was carrying about $12,000 in cash, just within the legal limit. But a feeling that something was not quite right led authorities to raid the man’s apartment in Munich several months later, resulting in the astonishing discovery of what could amount to more than $1.3 billion worth of artistic masterpieces, some — or all — of them looted by the Nazis more than 70 years ago. That would make it one of the largest such troves recovered since World War II. The stunning find is being reported by the German news magazine Focus, which said the hoard included paintings by Picasso, Chagall, Matisse and Klee that were believed to be lost or destroyed in the war. Though priceless, the 1,500 pieces were crammed next to piles of canned food in the messy Munich apartment of Cornelius Gurlitt, the 80-year-old son of a wellknown Nazi-era art dealer. The raid on Gurlitt’s home was conducted in early 2011, Focus reported, but German officials have kept mum for more than two years as they moved the artworks into safe storage outside Munich and started untangling the tricky knot of issues surrounding their provenance and whether — and how — to return them to their rightful owners. Of special interest to art historians will be the 300 or so pieces that may have featured in the catalogue of what Hitler denounced as “degenerate art,” works that did not fit in with his vision of a reactionary, racially pure society. Focus said that when Gurlitt needed money, he sold off individual pieces, such as The Lion Tamer by German Expressionist painter Max Beckmann, which fetched nearly $1.2 million at an auction in Cologne two years ago. His father, Hildebrand Gurlitt, was a knowledgeable art dealer who was tapped by the Nazis to help them collect and sell artwork. Holocaust survivors and their descendants around the world have campaigned for years to have their family treasures restored to them. In March of this year, the French government returned seven paintings — four of which had hung in the Louvre — to the heirs of their original owners, calling it a “moral issue.” Last week, Dutch museums announced they had identified 139 artworks that might have been confiscated from Jewish owners.

Defiant Morsi rejects criminal charges as judge delays trial By Amina Ismail
McClatchy Foreign Staff
CAIRO — Ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi on Monday made his first public appearance since he was forced from office four months ago, loudly proclaiming at a court hearing that he remains the country’s duly elected leader and rejecting the criminal charges lodged against him as an effort to cover up a military coup. “It is sad that the great Egyptian judiciary serves as a cover for the military coup,” Morsi said as

All face charges of inciting violence Mohammed that stem from Morsi the deaths of 10 people during clashes between pro- and anti-Morsi demonstrators outside the presidential palace last December. Morsi and the other defendants chanted “down, down,

The hearing, which wasn’t televised live, was at Cairo’s Police Academy, the same place where Morsi’s predecessor, Hosni Mubarak, was tried. A crowd of pro-Morsi demonstrators gathered outside the location, at one point besieging a van carrying a journalist.

had ordered that the former president wear a prison uniform for the hearing. But Morsi, consistent with his insistence that he remains Egypt’s elected president, refused.
When the judge asked Morsi whether he agreed to be represented by a lawyer who was present in the courtroom, Morsi responded. “With all due respect, this is not a court,” he said.

TEHRAN, Iran — Tens of thousands of protesters chanting “Death to America!” marched outside the former U.S. Embassy in Iran’s capital Monday in a staged rally highlighting hard-liners’ wariness about any possible rapprochement with the Islamic Republic’s archenemy. The turnout was the largest in years at an annual event marking the anniversary of the Nov. 4, 1979, takeover of the embassy in Tehran and the seizure of U.S. hostages. Iran’s official media said millions of people participated in similar gatherings across the country. The timing of the much-anticipated and heavily choreographed demonstrations was widely viewed as a pointed message to President Hasan Rouhani as he pursues a controversial diplomatic outreach to Washington. In September, Rouhani and President Barack Obama spoke via telephone on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly, marking the highest-level contact between U.S. and Iranian leaders since the 1979 Islamic revolution. A campaign among supporters of the president to tone down the “Death to America!” invective has elicited a backlash among conservatives opposed to reconciliation with the “Great Satan,” as the United States was labeled by late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomenei, leader of the Iranian revolution. Rouhani “must remain revolutionary,” said Morteza Fatollah Zadeh, 22, a student who was among the legions marching outside the former embassy walls, now festooned with antiU.S. slogans and crude caricatures of Obama. Many marchers noted that Rouhani, before his landslide election in June against a field of hard-line candidates, had praised the “Death to America!” and “Death to USA!” chants that have long been a mainstay of revolutionary rhetoric and Friday prayer oratory. The dispute about the antiU.S. slogans has highlighted the deep divisions in Iranian society about a possible reconciliation with the West. Among the protesters at the ex-embassy were groups of women dressed in black robes and schoolchildren bused in for the occasion. The marchers set ablaze U.S. flags and effigies of Obama, who was depicted in posters as a sinner in hell. A flatbed truck carried a giant pair of boots symbolically stomping on a U.S. flag. Recent revelations that the National Security Agency had eavesdropped on the private calls of world leaders in Europe and elsewhere provided additional fodder for marchers outside the ex-embassy, dubbed a “nest of spies” when seized more than three decades ago. “We knew 34 years ago that the U.S. Embassy was a ‘den of espionage,’ ” said Hossian, 56, who declined to give his last name for privacy reasons. Despite the polemics, Rouhani’s conciliatory polices toward the West appear to have considerable support from much of the population and from Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has the last word on matters of state in Iran’s theocratic ruling structure.

Hospital: Terminated employees will be paid through end of year Continued from Page A-1 We’ve worked really hard to get that down,” said Lillian Montoya, the hospital’s vice president for public policy. All those losing their jobs will be paid until the end of the year, and efforts will be made to find them other positions. Hospital board Vice President Larry Martinez, an administrator at Presbyterian Medical Services, said the challenges for hospitals are immense as the industry changes. One of the changes in the federal law, he said, means moving from a reimbursement system where hospitals get paid for providing a high volume of care “to now getting paid to manage chronic conditions and keep them out of hospitals and as healthy as we possibly can.” Martinez said the number of layoffs was less than rumored in the community, but added, “We still feel the bite of any individual who has to lose a job.” “Our hearts go out to all affected adversely by this decision of the hospital,” said Fonda Osborn, president of District 1199 of the National Union of Nurses and Hospital Employees, adding that the union was “relieved that the layoff did not involve more individuals and positions.” Still, Osborn said the hospital came to its decision without sufficient input from employee committees — despite offers from her and others to help seek more employee input. “There
Marble: Space may house new tap room Continued from Page A-1 and the Chama River Brewing Company in Albuquerque, as well as several other Santa Fe eateries, including Rio Chama Steakhouse, La Casa Sena and Maria’s New Mexican Kitchen — will install his own tap room in the space. “As far as I understand it will be a Santa Fe Dining tap room concept,” Rice said. Jim Hargrove, president of Santa Fe Dining, said he couldn’t comment Monday, but that “as things move forward, it will be easier to chat about this.” Calls to Peters’ gallery and Southwest Asset Management, the group that manages the Santa Fe Arcade, were not returned Monday. Soren Peters referred a caller to Rice. Ginnette said the Marble Brewery partners hope to find a new space quickly enough to keep the tap room’s approximately 10 workers employed. If that doesn’t happen, Rice said, their employees may end up working for the business that takes over the space on the Plaza. “It’s definitely unfortunate,” Rice said.“But we’re just kind of moving along, making a great beer and making sure we get it into the hands of people that love it.” Rice said Marble Brewery has increased its production each year it has been in business, growing from making about 5,000 barrels of beer its first year to about 13,000 this year, and typically has more wholesale business than it can handle. He said the brewery will probably shift more in that direction as it looks for a new retail outlet. “This will definitely affect our bottom line, but it’s not going to make or break this company by any means,” Rice said. “The beer will flow. It will just flow somewhere else. We’ll figure out a plan and come back stronger with a place that is going to be a great community hub.” Greer Enterprises, which owns the Plaza Galeria minimall adjoining the Santa Fe Arcade, has received design approval from the city Historic Districts Review Board to create a second-floor balcony atop the covered sidewalk on San Francisco Street overlooking the Plaza’s south side. However, the architect said late last month that no decision had been made on dining uses for the balcony, which would require City Council approval.

have been rumors of a layoff for weeks, and we’re disappointed that the governing body of the hospital and the CEO chose not to seek counsel from the one committee charged with review of any plans that affect staffing levels for patient care,” she said in a statement. “Arbitrary deci-
sion-making is never in the best interest of patients and certainly not a thoughtful way to interact with the greater Santa Fe community about the hospital’s role,” she said. Though Tassin said the layoffs will not impact “bedside nurse positions,” Fonda wasn’t so sure
that less support staff won’t mean more work for nurses. But keeping the hospital financially secure will allow it to move forward, Tassin said. Tassin told The New Mexican on Monday that Christus is moving ahead with a new clinic on the south side near the Wal-Mart Supercenter that will include family practice and primary care, as well as urgent care and behavioral health services. The new project on 2.5 acres will replace the staff and services now housed on Camino Entrada. “The goal is to manage care for all your needs at the same site,” Tassin said. He also said the hospital board will not make changes at the Phy-
sicians Medical Center building south of Rodeo Road near Interstate 25 in the coming year, and it will continue to use the building for elective orthopedic surgery — even though it averages just four surgical procedures a day. He said the administration will allow more time to explore the best options for that space. Tassin took over as the hospital’s top administrator less than seven months ago, after the April 22 departure of Alex Valdez, an
Española native and former state Health Department secretary. Valdez had headed the hospital since 2004 and oversaw the 2008 merger between the locally owned, nonprofit St. Vincent Regional Medical Center and the Texas-based Christus Health, a Christian-based nonprofit that owns 160 clinics and 60 hospitals in seven states and Mexico.

Funds: Staff will be trained, supervised by Ariz. firms Rights: Bill’s fate in House uncertain Continued from Page A-1
management systems are fully operational and determined to be sound.” Both the providers will be overseen by Arizona companies — La Frontera for PMS and Valle del Sol for YDI. The overseers “will train and provide technical assistance to staff members at each company, ensure program compliance with state and federal laws and rules, require accurate and timely billing (including presubmission review of claims), and assist in developing new performance measures,” the news release said. Human Services Secretary Sidonie Squier said in a statement, “PMS and YDI should be commended for working with the State from the get-go to improve service delivery, acknowledge the need to repay overpayments assigned to their
work, and sever ties with other troubled entities.” Specifically, the two providers had to cut ties with TeamBuilders — a Santa Fe-based company that’s also under investigation — and all its affiliates. TeamBuilders, which has facilities throughout the state, is one of the largest organizations from which Medicaid funding was yanked. In August, the Albuquerque Journal reported that a leaked portion of the outside audit performed for Human Services this year showed that the couple who run TeamBuilders were paid as much as $1.5 million a year in salaries and other income. Some of that other income included various real estate transactions the audit found “noteworthy.” The audit reportedly said TeamBuilders paid rent for some of its facilities around the state to holding companies owned in full or in
part by the president, vice president and other TeamBuilders officials. Attempts to reach the chief executives of the two New Mexico providers affected by Monday’s announcement were unsuccessful Monday. But both companies released written statements. Presbyterian’s statement quoted CEO Steve Hansen as saying, “While we have never agreed with the state’s contentions, allegations, or actions, PMS’s primary motivation in settling was to preserve its critical safety net behavioral health services and over 200 New Mexico behavioral health jobs.” The statement also said, “This settlement resolves all potential civil and administrative disputes with the state. PMS was unwilling to sacrifice services to so many New Mexico communities, choosing resolution instead of a long legal battle.”
Youth Development’s news release said, “YDI did not fully agree with the processes employed by the state and [Public Consulting Group, the Boston-based outside auditor]. Seeking resolution, YDI fully cooperated with [Human Services] in this matter and continued to provide services while payments to it were suspended. “In the interest of resolving all differences between YDI and HSD amicably, and in order to avoid the time, trouble, expense, delay and uncertainty of the time litigating this matter we believed this was the most prudent path for YDI to take. “The amount settled for is about 8 percent of the amount billed over the last 3 years. According to the [Government Accounting Office], the national average claim failure rate is between 3 percent and 9 percent.” Several Democrats in the
Legislature have been highly critical of the administration regarding the behavioral health shake-up. One of the leading critics, Sen. Bill O’Neil, D-Albuquerque, said in a statement Monday, “To me, this is just more of the same attempt at positive spin by the Martinez Administration. Whatever the ultimate resolution of this [Human Services] induced audit crisis is, there was absolutely no reason to destroy our existing state’s mental health system in the process. The 15 nonprofit behavioral health providers were not given the chance to review the findings and respond accordingly. They were denied due process. We still do not know what the actual allegations are — none of us do.” Contact Steve Terrell at firstname.lastname@example.org. Read his political blog at roundhouseroundup.com.

Continued from Page A-1 A spokesman for House Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, reiterated Monday that the measure would open small businesses to “frivolous litigation” and hurt the economy. Congress hasn’t passed major gay rights legislation since 2010, when it voted to end the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy that barred gays from openly serving in the military. But progress in LGBT rights has come elsewhere. This summer, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act and cleared the way for gay marriages in California. Same-sex marriage is legal now in 14 states and the District of Columbia. The Senate bill would prohibit employers, employment agencies and labor unions from using sexual orientation or gender identity as the basis for employment, promotion or compensation. Federal law extends such protections based on race, religion, gender, national origin, age or disability. Twenty-one states and the District of Columbia also protect sexual orientation; fewer do so for gender identity. That “patchwork of state laws excludes tens of millions of Americans from basic protections against discrimination,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said. “It simply is not good enough.” A similar bill failed in the Senate in 1996 and had not been taken up on the floor since. In 2007, the House passed a version that did not include transgender individuals, but the Senate did not take it up. “I’m dismayed that so many years have gone by, more than a decade, and this bill still has not become law,” said Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, a co-sponsor. Democrats secured the backing of everyone in the party’s 55-member caucus last week when Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Mark Pryor, D-Ark., announced their support. Newly sworn-in Democrat Cory Booker of New Jersey said this would be the first bill he co-sponsored. Dean Heller, R-Nev., became the fifth Republican senator to publicly support the bill Monday, calling it “the right thing to do.” Seven Republicans ultimately voted with 54 Democrats to advance the measure. Two other backers — Republican Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Democrat Claire McCaskill of Missouri — missed the vote. Even as the voting continued on the floor, additional Republican support was secured with negotiations in the Senate cloakroom. Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., the bill’s chief sponsor, said he would support an amendment sought by Sens. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., and Rob Portman, R-Ohio, that would effectively exempt certain faith-based organizations from the bill, calling it a “reasonable adjustment.” Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., who had not delivered a speech on the Senate floor since suffering a major stroke in January 2012, did so Monday in support of the measure. He said it was “particularly appropriate for an Illinois Republican to speak on behalf of this measure,” in the tradition of former Sen. Everett Dirksen and Abraham Lincoln, “men who gave us the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.” Amid predictions that the measure would die in the House, supporters said they would marshal public pressure to force action. A spokesman for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said “all options will be on the table in order to advance this critical legislation in the House.” President Barack Obama, who called for equal treatment of gays and lesbians in his inaugural address in January, reaffirmed his support Sunday. “Millions of LGBT Americans go to work every day fearing that, without any warning, they could lose their jobs — not because of anything they’ve done, but simply because of who they are,” he wrote for The Huffington Post. “It’s offensive. It’s wrong. And it needs to stop, because in the United States of America, who you are and who you love should never be a fireable offense.”

LOCAL NEWS Councilors reluctant to hike gross-receipts taxes City to face steep revenue shortfall when state cuts ‘hold-harmless’ distributions By Tom Sharpe
The New Mexican
No Santa Fe city councilors showed any enthusiasm for raising gross-receipts taxes when the issue of how to cover a future revenue shortfall came up Monday at a city Finance Committee meeting. New Mexico municipalities face a loss of revenue in coming years as the result of a last-minute tax deal between the state Legislature and Gov. Susana Martinez earlier this year that will shift money away from local governments to make it easier for the state to balance its budget. Since 2004, when the state repealed grossreceipts taxes on groceries, the state has reimbursed city and county governments for the revenue they lost from their share of grossreceipts tax collections. However, the new law will phase out those “hold-harmless” distribu-
tions to local governments starting in 2015, with the payments completely gone by 2019. The change could mean the losses of millions of dollars in revenues to the state’s larger cities, including about $630,000 to Santa Fe in the first year. While the governor has vowed not to sign any tax increases into law during her four-year term, this year’s compromise did authorize municipalities to raise their local gross-receipts tax rates. But when the city of Las Cruces tried to enact an increase of two-eighths of 1 percentage point, the state Department of Finance and Administration rejected it on a technicality. On Monday, the city of Santa Fe’s finance director, Marcos Tapia, presented the city Finance Committee with an analysis of how Santa Fe would benefit if it raised its grossreceipts tax rate, sometimes called a sales tax, by either one-eighth or three-eighths of 1 percent. The city’s rate is currently one of the state’s highest, at 8.1875 percent. The county’s rate is 6.625 percent. Tapia made it clear that no one on the council has proposed such a hike. And after his
presentation, both Councilors Patti Bushee and Peter Ives said they are reluctant to raise grossreceipts taxes. They said that if the city needs extra money to replace the losses in 2015, they would prefer, instead, tapping some of the cash reserves in the city budget. “Who wants to raise the GRT?” joked the committee’s chairman, Councilor Carmichael Dominguez. But the others on the committee remained silent. After the meeting adjourned, Bushee said she might consider a “sin tax” on alcohol and cigarettes to make up the deficit, although those substances are subject to state and federal regulation. “I think that makes much more sense than putting it back on food,” she said. The New Mexico Municipal League recently began pushing for legislation that would let local governments reinstate a tax on the sales of groceries sold locally. Despite what the league’s executive director claimed was a near unanimous endorsement of such a plan by leaders of the state’s municipalities, the governor has said she is against that idea.

Summit focuses on preparing students for workforce Speaker calls disconnect between educators, employers ‘a clear and present danger’ By Robert Nott The New Mexican
Is America’s public-education system adequately preparing its graduates for careers in the workforce? About 100 educators, policymakers and economic-development experts from 22 states and several territories joined several governors Monday in a daylong summit meeting to discuss that issue at the Inn and Spa at Loretto in downtown Santa Fe. The event, hosted by Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, is a continuation of a regional summit she held last month in Connecticut. “The role of education must be more than just preparing a person for a job. We must prepare them for a good job, a relevant job,” the Oklahoma Republican told the assembly during her opening remarks. And the problem goes far beyond the traditional K-12 public-education system, as a recent national study made clear. The study said fewer than 2 in 5 hiring employers who interviewed college graduates found the applicants prepared to handle the job. Joseph Fuller, a senior lecturer and professor at the Harvard Business School who gave the keynote presentation during Monday’s summit, called the disconnect between educators and employers “a clear and present danger to our economy and our kids’ futures.” He said educational institutes and businesses are not working closely enough to
ensure that what kids are learning will apply to the jobs that exist. He also told attendees that too many K-12 students aren’t learning basic foundation skills, also called soft skills: How to socialize, show up on time and maintain a professional appearance. If they don’t learn these skills from home and school, Fuller stressed, “all that’s going to happen is they’re not going to get hired … they’re going to get fired.” He advocated investing more in both training and hiring school guidance counselors who can pinpoint the talents of individual students and get them thinking about pursuing those career paths in school. If, for instance, a child shows little aptitude or interest in science and math but has a penchant for salesmanship, that student should be directed toward courses and colleges that will support him in that talent. Fuller also emphasized that often community colleges can do a better preparing a student for a job than a four-year-college. He spoke of successful partnerships around the country — including in South Carolina and Georgia — where community college leaders and regional employers work together to ensure the schools offer career-ready courses. Fallin said she is working with Oklahoma business owners to build career ladders out of school and into that state’s top industries, which include aerospace, financial services, agriculture and transportation. She said leaders have to find a way to do a better job reaching out to middle school students to get them thinking about their futures. “A lot of high school students don’t know what they want to do and end up with minimum-wage jobs,” she said. She acknowl-
edged she wasn’t sure what she wanted to do at that age either: “I didn’t expect to be a governor.” Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, another Republican who attended Monday’s event, said employers in his state are concerned that there is no alignment between schools and jobs. He said the state created UtahFutures. org, a website that gives students resources to plot out careers based on both dreams and needs. For instance, he said, if a student wants to eventually own a three-bedroom house, two cars, have two kids and make room for a dog, the website can lay out for that student what he or she needs to learn and earn and what jobs exist to make that dream a reality. Part of the summit’s goal was to share best practices, and following study sessions among individual groups of participants, several ideas came forth to link business with education. One participant noted a successful alliance between Mercedes Benz and Shelton State Community College in Alabama in which college students start internships at Mercedes Benz during the first week of school, earning experience and credits. In many cases, these students land jobs with the company upon completion of their associate degree. Another participant said that in Kentucky, the state’s higher-education department is no longer approving new courses or certificates that do not correspond to likely job openings in the state. Fuller acknowledged that growing partnerships between business and education can heighten concerns and questions about the potential privatization of public education. But, he said, “There’s no bigger business in the United States than K-12 public education.”

Thousands in N.M. allowed to keep, extend health policies By Staci Matlock The New Mexican
Thousands of New Mexico residents with existing health insurance plans that don’t meet the new federal health insurance law won’t have to get new policies, at least not immediately. Some can get an extension until Dec. 31, 2014, and some can stay on their current health insurance plans indefinitely if the company doesn’t make any changes to the policies. Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico, for example, has 17,000 members who had health insurance policies in place before the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act became law on March 23, 2010. About 3,000 of those members live in Santa Fe County, according to Becky Kinney, spokeswoman for Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico. Those existing plans were “grandfathered” in and don’t have to meet the new federal law requirements. “If these members choose not to make any change to their policy, they may keep these indefinitely,” Kinney said. Those plan-holders will see their rates increase 10.2 percent next year. Those members with grandfathered plans also can choose to get a new health insurance plan directly through an insurance company or through the federal health insurance exchange website. Another 11,000 Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico health insurance policyholders, most of them self-insured through the individual market, don’t have plans that are “grandfathered” in. They will have to purchase new policies through Blue Cross Blue Shield or the health exchange because their existing plans have to be terminated or changed to meet the new federal health care law, according to Kinney. Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico worked out a deal with the state Office of Superintendent of Insurance to give those policyholders extra time to buy new health insurance. Individuals with “nongrandfathered” plans can renew their existing policies by Dec. 1. Their policies will be good then until Nov. 30, 2014, Kinney said. After that, they will have to select a health insurance plan that complies with the Affordable Care Act. Janice Torrez, vice president of external affairs for Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico, said the company “wanted to give clients the greatest amount of time to decide whether they wanted to stay with their plans or get into the federal health insurance exchange.” People who keep their non-grandfathered health insurance plans for another year will see a 9.2 percent increase beginning Jan. 1, 2014. Lovelace Health System also asked for extensions through next year for policyholders on some of its existing individual plans, according to state Insurance Superintendent John Franchini. “It gave people on individual plans more time to select a new one,” Franchini said. Many New Mexicans with individual policies through Presbyterian Healthcare Services have received notices that their policies will be canceled because the plans don’t comply with the new federal health law. Presbyterian didn’t ask for an extension from the state because they didn’t think they would need to, Franchini said. The company thought the federal health insurance exchange would be working by now. Aaron Ezekiel, who is managing the health insurance exchange for the Office of Superintendent of Insurance, said insurance companies could grandfather in plans that didn’t comply with the Affordable Care Act, as long as they made no changes to those policies. “We’ve allowed companies to extend their expiration date,” Ezekiel said. “If they had plans that were going to expire in April, they could extend the plan until Dec. 31, 2014. But they had to apply for the extension.” He said the grandfathered policies are typically “closed block,” meaning no new members are accepted to the plan. “Older plans have all kinds of limitations, particularly in the individual market,” he said. Ezekiel said it doesn’t make sense for insurance companies to try to make older, closed-block plans comply with the new federal health care law. “Closedblock plans with mostly older and sicker members adds a whole lot more liability,” he said. “If a whole group is age 60-65 and they are getting sick, you are not doing them a favor to keep on an old plan. Under the federal exchange, they may qualify for a subsidy. But switching plans never makes people happy.” After age 65, people qualify for Medicare and don’t have to get individual health insurance. New Mexico Health Connections, Molina Healthcare, Presbyterian, Lovelace and Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico are all offering health insurance plans through the federal health care exchange. Each company website offers more information. People with questions or concerns about the state or federal health insurance exchange can call Ashley Hernandez, ombudsman with the state Office of the Superintendent of Insurance, at 855-857-0972 or 827-4465. “Ashley’s job is to know where people should fit,” Ezekiel said. “They can call her anytime. We will try to pick up the ball and run with it for folks running into these issues.”

After World War II, Sy and Allene settled in the Chicago area where he was a residential building contractor and raised their family there. He served in the Army Reserves until he retired as a Lt. Colonel in 1964. In his early years, he enjoyed playing baseball, speed skating, and building and sailing ice boats in Wisconsin.

e-Voices Our Web readers speak out: Our View: Council — keep out of police scheduling, Oct. 30 Why not compromise further and have a 9/80 schedule — one week with four days at nine hours, that Friday at eight hours, then the next week four days at nine hours, with Friday off (in other words, ﬁve days on, two days off, four days on, three days off). It’s been working for years at national laboratories.” L.R. We did not elect the police chief. We elected the council. If you believe in democracy, then they are in charge.” F.S. As if working ﬁve eights was some sort of oppressive working condition — if the council is going to directly manage the cops legislatively, what do we need a mayor, city manager and chief of police for?” P.K. The democratically elected council members should not as individuals tell the police chief how to run the department. I would agree with that. But [City Councilor Chris] Rivera is not doing this. He is prepared to offer a resolution to be voted on by the council as a body. And it is his right and his duty to do this. … Rivera deserves our respect and support. This New Mexican editorial is totally out of accord with representative democracy as enshrined in our Constitution and is totally wrong for the United States, New Mexico and Santa Fe. … ” D.
Our View: What a stretch — yoga won’t harm, Oct. 29 This is serious stuff to fundamentalists. Some of the born-agains classify yoga, hypnosis, dancing, etc., to be occultism; i.e., just a form of devil worshiping. Add to that the slippery slope fallacy and you might accept the notion, as it seems Rep. Alonzo Baldonado does, that once these kids ﬁnd out that they are doing yoga rather than just stretching, next thing you know, they will fall off the born-again wagon. Sigh. One of our 50 is indeed missing. Along with a sense of logic and proportion in some of our legislators.” K.S. This is absolutely ludicrous and I, along with half the country, laughed out loud when I heard it! As a former ﬁtness class instructor at a local gym, I included mild ‘warm-up’ motion to loosen people up, as well as ‘cool down’ time to allow participants’ heart rates to decelerate. … Participants who wanted to take a yoga class could sign up for that in the neighboring studio of my spin class. Stretching is stretching and is crucial to an overall healthy ﬁtness regimen. People want prayer in public schools, but they want only their prayers in public schools. Our Founding Fathers believed in religious freedom because they ﬂed a land in which people were persecuted for not worshipping the state faith. … But making such a crazy assumption that if teachers are very wisely having children stretch to prevent injury that equates to teaching Buddhism is laughable. And I am still laughing! I think the state has bigger issues to ﬁx, Rep. Alonzo Baldonado!” D.S.

‘Chief of Police’ recalls different era
early 10 years ago, I moved to New York after three decades in New Mexico. So it was a great pleasure to read David Roybal’s book, Chief of Police. Names I hadn’t seen in years — from former Santa Fe District Attorney Eloy Martinez and Pojoaque Pueblo Gov. Jake Viarrial to journalists Larry Calloway and Bob Storey — appeared every couple of pages, usually accompanied by an amusing anecdote. I also enjoyed reading Chief Richard CdeBaca’s perspective on unsolved mysteries such as the murder of Father Reynaldo Rivera and legendary figures like Reies Lopes Tijerina. For me, the book brought back memories of a time and place that are difficult to access through the new landscape and cast of characters I find on my occasional visits home. I read the book cover to cover on the plane and recommend it especially to those who also lived through many of the events described. Note: David Roybal is my ex-husband; still loved the book.

A proud Canadian I am writing to counter the letter titled, “Canadian woes” (Oct. 30). A decade of unfortunate medical adventures has made me most grateful to be a
Canadian citizen. I had both retinas detach over the same Christmas and New Year’s season; both were repaired within 24 hours and my sight saved. Later, I needed total hip replacements, both left and right. I waited no more than six weeks in either case and that was because I chose a time that was convenient for me. The medical saga continued with right and left cataract surgery; wait times again did not exceed a few weeks. None of these surgeries cost me anything, nor did the aftercare. While I make no claim that the Canadian system is perfect, it serves millions of Canadians well. Access to free, effective and timely medical care should be the right of every citizen in a civilized nation. Ian Mills
A good priest I met the Rev. Adam Lee Ortega y Ortiz when I was a child at Our Lady of Guadalupe church in Velarde. Father Adam was a close friend to his parishioners, including my family. Father has a young spirit, which draws the attention of everyone. He was able to connect. I have never kept in touch with any other priest besides Father Adam. He is
a good person and cares about everyone. He made such an impression that my wife and I asked him to marry the two of us. Without even thinking about it, he responded with a yes. He is that kind of person, to drop any of his plans and do good for the community and past communities. He has such dedication to serving his people that he has earned the respect of many people both young and old. If I ever needed a priest to talk to, he would be the one I would approach. He has earned my respect, and I back his efforts 100 percent Kevin Olivas
Remembering Dawson I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Ms. Georgia Maryol (owner of Tomasita’s Restaurant) for the fantastic job she did in coordinating the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Dawson mine disaster. My grandfather (a young Greek immigrant) was one of the 263 miners who lost their lives in that disaster. He and his young bride (Marianna C de Baca) had only been married for a few months before he lost his life, so my father never knew his father. Thank you, Georgia, for a great job! Joseph P. Sekot
No charges for school board member in art theft, Oct. 31 I read this article with total disgust. And TV news reports last night had his school board colleagues defending him — that is disturbing and unbelievable. And we wonder why our youth have such poor value systems, lack of ethics and morals? This man should resign his position. Clearly, pueblo officials didn’t call the FBI, because Romero would have surely been prosecuted for the theft. Instead, they sent it to District Attorney Angela ‘Spence’ Pacheco, so she could cut a deal for him and let him off scot-free. Other questions also arise. Romero admitted he was drunk. Did he drive himself and the stolen property home drunk, as he’s done so many times in the past, or did he have an accomplice waiting in the parking lot for him? Will the accomplice be prosecuted, or will [Romero] be charged with another DUI since he and his attorney admit he was drunk? Where is the outside video of him leaving the casino? Romero is … engaged in criminal activity and should be treated like the criminal he is. Prosecute this repeat offender. He has no business in public office.” F.R. Seems like he has no business just being in public!” J.F. Now on to the lighter side of this newsy item, I see my neighbor down the street has a new BMW.

A better way to educate New Mexicans
f we’re lucky, we’re constantly learning. We reconstruct our thoughts, build additions onto our minds and renovate our understandings. Our learning process can be likened to the work of an architect; it’s a process meticulously engineered, creatively executed, and specifically designed to suit the terrain of the site. Good architects are observant and adaptive. They build Ian Esquibel solutions that leverage and complement what already exists. Our school system can be similar: adaptive, intelligent and well-engineered. We just need to identify our blueprint and our way of working that is best suited to our state’s needs. One of my first tasks as the new executive director of the Learning Alliance of New Mexico, a statewide entity supporting education reform, was to join a team from New Mexico that traveled to Denver to learn from innovators who are engaged in remodeling the Colorado education system. We began our visit by observing High Tech Early College, a high school using technology to support students as they earn up to 26 college credit hours by their junior year. We then continued to other public and charter schools in Denver Public Schools focused on innovations like positive youth development, sustainability-centered curriculum and industryspecific workforce preparation. We met with principals and asked how they redesigned and redefined their schools. We connected with administrators at the district level and gained insight about their improvement strategies.
There were a few takeaways from this experience that really impacted my thinking about what a well-engineered education system could look like in our state. I saw an educational system striving for innovation while overcoming its traditional nature, risk aversion, and fear of failure. I observed educational leaders using pragmatic tactics to do something new, which resulted in innovative outcomes. Compare this fresh approach to Einstein’s definition of insanity — “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results” — which I hope our educational systems can avoid. While I understand many definitions of “student success” exist, I was impressed that a consensus can form around core fundamentals. The Colorado Department of Education established four core fundamentals to prepare students for success in school and success in life: academics, professional-
ism, entrepreneurialism and self-knowledge. The academic component encapsulates what many of us think about when we think about education: test scores, grades, reading, writing, arithmetic. The professional component underscores “soft skills” — the ability to communicate, work in groups, build emotional intelligence, and learn the importance of punctuality. The entrepreneurial component highlights personal characteristics that will prepare those entering the workforce in 15 to 20 years: agility, creativeness, perseverance, risktaking and drive. And the idea of self-knowledge resonated with me especially because the only variable students can constantly and accurately work on is themselves. Some educational systems are making their way through a remodeling and reforming process. The process may be ongoing, noisy and dusty, but the process builds a better
structure. Other educational systems remain stalled in plans and structures created decades ago. Colorado seems to be an example of a system in the process of an innovative remodel. How will New Mexico choose to respond to opportunities to remodel and reform its education structure? What are the core fundamentals we want for our students to be successful in school and successful in life? Local voices will define what matters to students, families, teachers and administrators. Solutions exist within our communities; they exist in our stories. It’s time we share our thoughts in the interest of progress for prosperity. This is a movement for our families, our economy and our future. Learn about how to get involved at learningalliancenm. org.

Ban on lead ammunition is good for birds
he recent decision by California lawmakers and the California governor to phase in a ban on the use of lead ammunition for hunting is a step in the right direction. It will move California toward reducing lead contamination statewide and will assuredly and dramatically reduce the number of lead-poisoned wildlife. The poster child for this effort is clearly one of America’s most iconic and threatened birds, the California condor. The numbers tell the story. About 225 of these birds are left in the wild, and lead poisoning continues to account for 50 percent of condor deaths among the necropsies performed since 1996 by The Peregrine Fund — the organization that has been leading the recovery effort for the species.
In a perfect world, we could all accept as fact what hundreds of studies by wellrespected institutions have shown: Lead ammunition is responsible for the poisoning deaths of millions of birds in the United States annually. The preferred solution is, of course, a voluntarily switch to nonlead ammunition. That’s something that all of us in the wildlife conservation community would applaud. And we do hope that a voluntary approach can still work in other states and communities where such programs are objectively viewed. The problem in the case of the condor is that the switch to non-lead ammunition has not been happening fast enough. Clearly, something is broken when half the mortality of one of our most endangered birds is from lead poisoning. This, in spite
of Herculean efforts to round up as many condors as possible to test for and treat those that are lead-poisoned but haven’t yet succumbed to it. The hunting community has done a lot to promote better wildlife conservation over the years. And in that spirit, California regulators gave the voluntary approach a fair chance. Unfortunately, this approach wasn’t able to ensure the survival of one of the world’s most imperiled bird species. Let’s hope the state can work out the few technical issues in the legislation. Those actions will no doubt save more condors — as well as the many other species that would otherwise be poisoned by lead. George Fenwick is the president of the American Bird Conservancy.

Kurds emerge from embers of Syrian war
ore than 200,000 Syrian Kurdish refugees have moved into Iraqi Kurdistan. They have crossed an international border to be sure, yet it is, in the Kurdish world view, a passage from one part of their homeland to another. The Kurds disregard these frontiers, imposed on the Fertile Crescent almost a century ago by Anglo-French power. No Kurd is lamenting the erosion of the borders in this tangled geography. The partition of the successor states of the Ottoman Empire brought the Kurds grief and dispossession. The Persians, Turks and Arabs secured their own states. Indeed, the Arabs were bequeathed several states in the geography of “Turkish Arabia” that runs from the Iraqi border with Iran to the Mediterranean. Kurdistan was singularly betrayed, its people divided among Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria. Kurdish history became a chronicle of thwarted rebellions. According to a deeply felt expression, the Kurds had no friends but the mountains. Yet a new life is stirring in Kurdistan. Irbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, once a forgotten fortress town, is a booming city of shopping malls, high-rises and swank hotels. Oil and natural gas have remade the city, as has its political stability, remarkable when set against the mayhem of the rest of Iraq. The Kurds are shrewd. They aren’t about to claim Irbil as the capital of a restored greater Kurdistan, but it has pride of place in their world. It is the home of Massoud Barzani, the president of the Kurdish regional government, and of almost 5 million people, who are officially part of Iraq but in reality belong to an independent nation. The realists among the Kurds know the power and ruthlessness of the nations that have divided and ruled their world, yet they are deter-

Partisan picks bad for state
I mined to make the best of this moment when borders and attachments are suddenly in flux. It is the fate of Western Kurdistan — Rojava in Kurdish — that has given rise to this new sense of urgency. The war between the Damascus regime and the principally Sunni rebels presents peril and possibility for the 2 million to 3 million Kurds within Syria. The Kurds inhabit fragments of Syria by the Turkish and Iraqi borders, in the northeast; their lands contain the bulk of Syria’s oil. Arab nationalism, the creed of the authoritarian Syrian state, was avowedly racist in its treatment of them, denying them the most basic and cherished right: use of their own language. The regime of the Assads, father and son, has been cunning and devastating in the way it pitted the Kurds against one another. Yet in the civil war that erupted in 2011, the Syrian opposition has troubled the Kurds, too. The leaders of the Sunni Arab rebellion were committed to creation of their own centralized state. Turkey’s sponsorship of the rebels
created suspicions as well. The foreign jihadists who made their way to Syria were yet another source of anxiety. The Kurds had a small volunteer force of their own, but it was no match for Jabhat al-Nusra, or the Nusra Front, whose Islamist warriors had weapons aplenty, money and unchecked zeal. The group was determined to impose its rule in areas the regime had left. In mid-July, clashes broke out in Kurdish towns and have erupted intermittently since. Thousands of Syrian Kurds have made their way to Iraqi Kurdistan, where they receive help, even as the authorities in Irbil don’t want to encourage an exodus from Syria. Turkey casts a large shadow. The line that separates the Syrian and Turkish Kurds is artificial. As the prominent Turkish columnist Cengiz Candar observes, the Kurds don’t speak of Turkish and Syrian communities. For them the line of separation was a simple railroad track that allowed them to move to and fro, with ease and freedom. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan faces a dilemma. He is invested in a peace process at home with
the Kurdish Workers’ Party, or PKK, and its imprisoned leader, Abdullah Ocalan. And Turkey has a flourishing relationship with Iraqi Kurdistan, whose oil and natural gas it needs desperately. Yet the permissive attitude of the Turkish state toward the jihadists battling the Syrian Kurds has been a source of trouble for Erdogan. He has gone a long way toward keeping the jihadists at arm’s length. The dream of greater Kurdistan is just that. History has given the Kurds a second chance in Iraq and Syria, while Turkish democracy gives them a voice in the country’s direction. Matters are stagnant in Iran, where the oppression of the Kurds is of a piece with the tyranny of a theocracy. The Kurds can’t erase all the hurts of their modern history and those who choose to stay in Syria remain embattled, yet the isolation that had been their lot is now in the past. At the foot of those once sheltering mountains, a new and a safer life has sprung forth. Fouad Ajami is a senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Hang on to unique, historic San Francisco Plaza
llowing a developer to essentially eliminate San Francisco Plaza for a two-story building is wrong on many levels. Tourists to Santa Fe would probably never know the difference, just as they marvel at the ancient adobe buildings that were Joe Friday’s gas station until the late 1970s. However, locals would know the difference, and would know that the loss would be one of the few downtown buildings that has retained a touch of what Santa Fe was like before developers turned the downtown into a Disneyland for wealthy adults. Citizens and city government need to resist this one with all their might. One final thought, trying to say that the view down San Francisco from Sandoval to Guadalupe looks “spooky,” is one of the more laughable comments I have seen in a while. I can take him to parts of downtown Albuquerque that felt the touch of developers, and which are now well beyond spooky. Bob White

His column was fresh, interesting, provocative and his approach to real-life happenings was presented in a way different from any other writer I’ve encountered. Combining morals, the Bible and common sense in a column without sounding like a sermon is unique. I always thought his column should be in the opinions section, but maybe there are more readers in the sports section. I have sent his column to several friends in other cities on many occasions.

nothing more than an email containing unfounded accusations against the Rev. Adam Ortega y Ortiz. Do you really expect us to believe anything the newspaper prints when your so-called “news” is based on nothing more than an email forwarded to you by an obviously disgruntled former employee? We know Father Adam personally as our priest, pastor and friend. He is a man of great faith, morals and character. We trust him with our family, children and grandchildren. Anyone who truly knows him can testify to his dedication to serve his parishioners with integrity, honesty and compassion. Don’t you check the facts before you print something that can cause unjustified damage to an innocent person’s reputation? Or does this only apply to Catholic priests? Shame on The New Mexican.

Adam Ortega y Ortiz did ask friends and supporters to write letters about his service to the community. We will be running a selection of these letters.
t’s little surprise, but Gov. Susana Martinez appointed a Republican to replace progressive state Rep. Stephen Easley, a Democrat from Eldorado — what’s more, she went all the way to Valencia County to choose his replacement. Talk about adding insult to injury. Former Albuquerque City Councilor Vickie Perea — she now lives in Belen — now will represent a good chunk of Santa Fe County come the next legislative session. Her selection means the mostly Democratic District 50 will have a Republican representative who lives far from the center of the far-flung district’s population — more than half of Easley’s votes came from Santa Fe County. He won, too, by 56 percent of the vote, and the district has 46 percent Democratic registration compared to 33 percent Republican. When a seat opens up midterm as it did because of Easley’s untimely passing earlier this year, county commissions nominate and the governor appoints. For Easley’s seat, nominations came from Santa Fe, Bernalillo, Valencia and Torrance counties. Both Santa Fe and Bernalillo commissioners chose Ann Jenkins, a Democrat from Eldorado, as their nominee, while Torrance County chose Republican LeRoy Candelaria and Valencia commissioners nominated Perea. Nominations over, the switch of a seat from Democratic to Republican followed with the stroke of a governor’s nominating pen. Because the switch inches party control of the House of Representatives ever closer, this appointment matters. Instead of a 38-32 Democratic majority, control is now at 37-33, with enough quirky Democratic legislators to make anything possible. We don’t fault Gov. Susana Martinez for playing politics. That’s the way the game works. Still, we hope the soon-to-be Rep. Perea will listen to her constituents in Santa Fe County — their votes will decide whether she stays, after all, should she decide to run for re-election. As for Martinez’s comment about Perea being a “passionate public servant,” that’s all well and good. What Perea isn’t is someone who represents the viewpoints of many of her district’s residents. As such, the appointment doesn’t serve the people of District 50. Perhaps this appointment will teach all the political game-players a lesson. When Republican Sen. Kent Cravens resigned from the Legislature back in 2011, the commissions from Bernalillo and Sandoval counties insisted on sending the name of a Democrat, Lisa Curtis, to Martinez. The governor had no choice but to appoint her despite the conservative nature of the district. For that appointment, it was county commissioners, voting on party lines, who ignored the interests of their constituents. Previously, commissioners generally nominated candidates from the same party as whoever held the vacant seat. That tradition should be resumed. Curtis didn’t last long — she lost her battle to win the seat by votes from the people instead of by votes from politicians. Come 2014, it will be interesting to see who runs for Easley’s seat and come November, who returns to the Legislature. Somehow, we don’t think District 50 will remain Republican for very long. Leading us back to the notion that in making interim appointments, the elected politicians should defer to the wishes of the district — as displayed in recent elections and voting patterns.
The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Nov. 5, 1913: “Pay your $3 road tax or face a suit costing $12 to $15.” Such is the ultimatum which the county road board sends out today, following a meeting at the court house yesterday afternoon and a consultation with the district Attorney. Mr. Seligman waxed sarcastic about the excuses given the tax collector and said: “Of course a man who has lost a leg or an arm is really infirm — that is, unable to do his share of work on roads and therefore exempt from the $3 tax but if Santa Fe County had need of soldiers, there are so many who claim to be infirm from the loss of a finger, a toe, hearing in one ear or vision that it would be unlikely we could defend ourselves if war broke out with Mexico. I think an investigation should be made of many of the reports handed in showing ‘infirmities.’ ” Nov. 5, 1963: The current special session of the New Mexico Legislature, considering reapportionment of the House of Representatives, may cost the state $100,000. A request by the four-month-old Pojoaque School District for emergency funds was turned down today by the State Education Board. The new district used $42,000 from its operating budget to construct a new school. The board denied the request for $10,000 to be placed in the school’s emergency fund, but the emergency did not exist at present.

Hollywood poised to give health care law a major boost By Michael R. Blood and Sandy Cohen The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES he health care overhaul might get a Hollywood rewrite. The California Endowment, a private foundation that is spending millions to promote President Barack Obama’s signature law, recently provided a $500,000 grant to ensure TV writers and producers have information about the Affordable Care Act that can be stitched into plot lines watched by millions. The aim is to produce compelling prime-time narratives that encourage Americans to enroll, especially the young and healthy, Hispanics and other key demographic groups needed to make the overhaul a success. “We know from research that when people watch entertainment television, even if they know it’s fiction, they tend to believe that the factual stuff is actually factual,” said Martin Kaplan of the University of Southern California’s Norman Lear Center, which received the grant. The public typically gets as much, if not more, information about current events from favorite TV programs as mainstream news outlets, Kaplan said, so “people learn from these shows.” California Republican strategist Jonathan Wilcox, who has taught a course on politics and celebrity at USC, said the attempt to engage Hollywood was coming too late to influence views, and he doubted fictionalized TV would play into families’ decisions about health care. “This is an attempt to use entertainment pop culture to fix a political challenge,” he said. “It will be received as a partisan political message, no matter how cleverly it’s delivered.” Hollywood is known for supporting Democratic candidates and causes — Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler are among a long list of celebrities who have made a pitch for the law — but there is no guarantee the entertainment industry will be in lockstep with the White House on health care. Just last week, a South Park episode was largely devoted to mocking a malfunctioning website billed as a “simple, integrated portal” for health services. When it’s being demonstrated for students, a laptop instead starts playing Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long (All Night).” The challenge for the law’s supporters is to connect with the millions of Americans who for whatever reason haven’t paid attention. The 18-month grant, to the Lear Center’s Hollywood Health & Society program, will be used for briefings with staff from television shows and to track health overhaulrelated depictions on primetime and Spanish-language television. Since the grant money was provided so recently, no plot lines involving health care have been written. And Kaplan isn’t targeting specific shows. For those who could benefit from coverage, “we want them to get the facts. We don’t

Says people learn current events from favorite TV shows. believe the government alone can break through with those facts,” said David Zingale, a California Endowment senior vice president. The grant announcement comes after the stumbling launch of the federal website where Americans shop for the health insurance they are required to have next year. The White House also has been forced to backtrack on vows that no one would lose their existing coverage and that anyone happy with their current insurance and doctor could keep them. Arthur Caplan, head of the division of medical ethics at New York University’s Langone Medical Center, said to have credibility, Hollywood must present the health care plan warts and all. “If there are drawbacks and glitches and discontent, that should be part of the presentations,” said Caplan, who supports the law. Hollywood can be a forceful shaper of style and public sentiment. A survey conducted several years ago for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation found that among those who said their feelings toward gays and lesbians had become more favorable, many said a contributing factor was seeing more gay and lesbian characters on TV and in movies. Vice President Joe Biden has credited the 1998-2006 TV sitcom Will & Grace, which featured a gay character, with doing “more to educate the public than almost anything anybody’s done so far.” But Hollywood sparkle doesn’t always get results. A recent video warning of the dangers of domestic spying and calling for an end to mass National Security Agency surveillance featured actor John Cusack, actress Maggie Gyllenhaal and director Oliver Stone. The video’s impact is hard to measure, but questions linger about the surveillance practices. Zingale and Kaplan both stressed that the writers and producers remain solely in control of the content they create. Overall, the Los Angelesbased foundation expects to spend $130 million for advertisements and other enrollment efforts aimed largely at Hispanics. The foundation’s president, Robert K. Ross, is a member of the board of Covered California, the state-run insurance exchange set up under the new law. The center provides similar information for Hollywood writers on cancer, AIDS, climate change and other issues. “Public health is a common good. Public health is not a partisan issue,” Kaplan said. “America needs to be healthy. People need to have access to health care. That’s not a controversial statement.” Wilcox doesn’t believe Hollywood can make the health care law successful.

GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Chicago Bears have a better insurance policy than Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Bears 27 Josh McCown, playing in place of Packers 20 the injured Jay Cutler, threw for two touchdowns Monday night as the Bears won 27-20 and ended a six-game skid to their NFC North rivals. The loss snapped Green Bay’s four-game winning streak, but the far larger concern is the health of Rodgers, who hurt his left (non-throwing) shoulder when he was sacked on the first series by Shea McClellin. Rodgers took a few warm-up throws with backup Seneca Wallace but, after being examined by medical staff, ran into the Green Bay locker room. He wasn’t seen again until midway through the third quarter, when he came back onto the field in sweats. Although he waved to fans with his right hand and didn’t appear to be wearing a brace, he kept his left hand jammed in his pocket. “He has a shoulder injury,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. “They want to run more tests.

Smart leads All-America squad after unanimous panel vote By Jim O’Connell
The Associated Press
A lot of people were shocked when Marcus Smart announced he would return to Oklahoma State for his sophomore season. Nobody should be surprised the Cowboys point guard was a unanimous selection to The Associated Press’ preseason All-America team. Smart was on every ballot from the 65-member national media panel Monday, a no-brainer since he was expected to be among the first players chosen if he had declared for the NBA draft. The last unanimous preseason All-America was Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger in 2011-12. After averaging 15.4 points, 5.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 3.0 steals last season in winning the Big 12 player of the year award, it was how the Cowboys fared in the NCAA Tournament that had a lot to do with his coming back. “I felt like we had a lot more to accomplish,” Smart said of the loss to Oregon in Oklahoma State’s opening game of the NCAA tournament. “We were a lot better team than that. That’s just not the way we wanted to go out. It helped me a little bit to get motivated to come back this year.”

The Cardinal credit a physical, gap-plugging 3-4 scheme under defensive coordinator Derek Mason, who emphasizes the most basic fundamentals: tackling and discipline. In the two games since losing at Utah, Stanford has shut down Brett Hundley and UCLA (10 points) and Sean Mannion and Oregon State (12 points) in victories.

Boston trio receive qualifying offers
By Ronald Blum
The Associated Press
NEW YORK — The World Series champion Boston Red Sox made $14.1 million qualifying offers to free agents Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli and Stephen Drew on Monday, the first deadline day of baseball’s offseason. Thirteen free agents received the offers, up from nine last year. The Yankees also extended offers to a trio of players: second baseman Robinson Cano, outfielder Curtis Granderson and pitcher Hiroki Kuroda. Players accepting are signed for next season. If a player signs elsewhere, his former team gets an extra draft pick at the end of the first round next June as compensation. Others receiving the offers were Atlanta catcher Brian McCann, Cincinnati outfielder Shin-Soo Choo, Cleveland pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez, Kansas City pitcher Ervin Santana, St. Louis outfielder Carlos
feited, and a team signing multiple qualified players would lose a corresponding amount of selections. Boston general manager Ben Cherington said the Red Sox decided not to make an offer to Jarrod Saltalamacchia, though he would like to re-sign the catcher. “There’s interest in every one of them,” Cherington said of his free agents. “I also think it’s unlikely that every one of them will be back. … We’re going to Boston Red Sox’s Mike Napoli reaches for a throw during keep the conversation going the eighth inning of Game 4 of the World Series against the with all of them, and also with St. Louis Cardinals on Oct. 27.

coaches for his leadership, and this year he was voted by teammates to serve as a member of the Dolphins’ player council. Joe Philbin Philbin said the Dolphins had a team meeting on the matter. Predictably, it was not a topic many players wanted to say much about. “I’m concentrating on football,” Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake said. At Nebraska, Incognito’s career was cut short when he was suspended in 2004 before his junior season following a locker room altercation with a teammate. He also ran into problems with the law while with the Cornhuskers, and they said he repeatedly violated team rules.
Martin protected Andrew Luck’s blind side at Stanford before joining Miami as a second-round draft pick in 2012. He has been a starter since the beginning of his rookie season, but has struggled while dividing his time between left and right tackle. “I can only answer for myself, and yes, I would,” tight end Michael Egnew — the player whose Facebook page was hacked by Incognito — said when asked if he would welcome Martin back to the team. For the first six games this year, Incognito and Martin were the two players protecting Ryan Tannehill’s blind side, which may help explain his league-high 35 sacks. “I think laughter can be a healthy, productive thing,” Philbin said. “But not in a demeaning way at the expense of an individual.”

“There is a lot of pressure on head coaches,” Broncos executive John Elway said. “I think especially with the size of this game and the growth of this game, the expectation levels have continued to grow. So that’s a tough, tough spot.” Elway said he called Indianapolis general manager Ryan Grigson on Sunday to see how the Colts managed last year, when coach Chuck Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia and hospitalized. Pagano had been experiencing extreme fatigue and bruising but, like Fox, waited until the team’s bye week to be checked out by a doctor. Pagano would return for the last regular-season game, and the Broncos are already preparing for the eventual return of Fox. “This is Coach Fox’s team,” interim coach Jack Del Rio said. “I’m merely the person that’s able to keep it running right now while he’s healing.”
Coaches around the league talked Monday about how they try to deal with the stress of a job that takes place under an unrelenting spotlight. They praised team doctors for making sure they have regular physicals and said they try to understand the warning signs that come with the job. Then they went back to their offices to break down film and get ready for another Sunday where 70,000 people in the stadium and millions more at home are second guessing their every move. “There are times when stress does things to you mentally and physically that nothing else does,” said Arizona coach Bruce Arians, who took over for Pagano when he was sick. “I know when I was at Temple my last year, I was having three migraines a week. The day I got fired, I didn’t have another migraine.”

THE NEW MEXICAN Tuesday, November 5, 2013
Smart: Lower back condition slows Michigan’s Mitch McGary Continued from Page B-1 Smart was joined on the preseason All-America team by seniors Doug McDermott of Creighton and Russ Smith of Louisville, sophomore Mitch McGary of Michigan and freshman Andrew Wiggins of Kansas. The 6-foot-4 Smart, who also won the Wayman Tisdale Award as the country’s top freshman, said he’s also coming back to improve on his 1.3-to-1 assist-turnover ratio and his 40 percent shooting from the field, including just 29 percent from 3-point range. Still, he said the decision to pass up millions of dollars and return to Stillwater was “the most difficult thing in my life.” McDermott, the Missouri Valley Conference player of the year last season after averaging 23.2 points and 7.7 rebounds, was on all but two ballots. He enters the season with a chance at joining an exclusive group. A two-time first-team All-America, McDermott could become just the 11th player to be a threetime postseason selection and the first since Patrick Ewing of Georgetown and Tisdale at Oklahoma from 1983-85. The 6-foot-8 forward is one of four returning starters for the Bluejays and coach Greg McDermott, Doug’s father. Creighton moves to the Big East this season. “I’m looking at this season as an opportunity to embrace a new challenge,” he said. “We know it’s much more physical, and there are a lot more athletes than we’re used to. We’ve prepared ourselves pretty well. We know it’s going to be a grind, and we’re looking forward to that.” The 6-foot Smith, who received 52 votes, averaged 18.7 points and 2.9 assists in helping the Cardinals win the national championship. He won’t have the graduated Peyton Siva with him in the backcourt, but coach Rick Pitino will still be calling the shots.

“I realized how much I loved playing with my teammates and how much fun it is to win,” Smith said of returning for his senior year, “and this is part of the purpose of being a national champion. Obviously, I wasn’t a clear cut first-round pick, so coming back was mainly because of coach, my teammates, the Louisville campus, the community, graduating.” Wiggins, just the second freshman to earn preseason honors since the team was first selected for the 1986-87 season, averaged 23.4 points and 11.2 rebounds as a senior at Huntington (W.Va.) Prep School. He was on 42 ballots and joins Harrison Barnes of North Carolina in 2010-11 as the only freshmen to earn preseason honors. Wiggins is a member of an outstanding freshman class at Kansas, and there aren’t many people who expect him to be a sophomore in Lawrence. The national magazine covers, the constant attention and comparisons to the like of LeBron
James haven’t been a problem for the 6-foot-8 Wiggins, whose father Mitchell played at Florida State and in the NBA. “It kind of grew on me over the years to where I’m used to it,” Wiggins said of the attention. “I just think of it as a blessing. A lot of people don’t get an opportunity to be showcased like that.” McGary, who averaged 7.5 points and 6.3 rebounds, caught the country’s attention during the Wolverines’ run to the NCAA title game when he averaged 14.3 points and 10.7 rebounds. The 6-foot-10 McGary, who received 34 votes, has been slowed by a lower back condition heading into this season. “Right now I’m day to day — doing stuff on the court, light shooting, limited in what I can do, what they’re allowing me to do,” McGary said last week. “There’s no target date or anything.” Ohio State guard Aaron Craft was sixth in the voting with 14.
PHILADELPHIA — Andre Iguodala made a career-high seven 3-pointers and scored 32 points, Stephen Curry had 18 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds, and the Golden State Warriors handed the Philadelphia 76ers their first Warriors 110 loss of the season, 110-90 on 76ers 90 Monday night. The overachieving 76ers (3-1) were one of the early surprises of the season. Iguodala, a former Sixers All-Star, brought them back to reality. Iguodala was sensational, setting the pace early with six 3s and 27 points in the first half. He also made the play of the young season, a behind-the-back, midair assist to David Lee. Iguodala whipped it from about the 3-point line and hit Lee in stride down the lane. Sixers rookie point guard Michael CarterWilliams, the Eastern Conference player of the week, missed 13 of 17 shots and scored 18 points. Iguodala had scored only 26 points the first three games. CAVALIERS 93, TIMBERWOLVES 92 In Cleveland, C.J. Miles scored 19 points, Kyrie Irving added 15, and Cleveland held off a late rally to hand Minnesota its first loss of the season. The Timberwolves nearly erased a 23-point deficit midway through the third quarter to stay unbeaten, but Kevin Love, the NBA’s leading scorer, missed a 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining and the ball was tipped away as time ran out. Kevin Martin led the Timberwolves with 23 points. Love added 17 points and 13 rebounds for Minnesota, which won its first three games and was off to its best start since going 6-0 in 2001-02. Cavaliers rookie forward Anthony Bennett, taken with the No. 1 pick in the draft, missed all three of his shots and is 0 for 15 from the field this season. His only points have come on two free throws in the season opener. GRIzzLIES 95, CELTICS 88 In Memphis, Tenn., Jerryd Bayless keyed a fourth-quarter rally, scoring all of his 15 points in the period to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a victory over the Boston Celtics. Bayless was 6 of 7 in the quarter to help Memphis erase a six-point Boston lead with just under 9 minutes to play. Zach Randolph and Mike Conley also had 15 for Memphis, Conley handing out eight assists. Marc Gasol finished with 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting from the field and grabbed eight rebounds.

Jeff Green led the Celtics with 22 points, while Jared Sullinger scored 16, going 2 of 3 from outside the arc. Avery Bradley scored 14 and Jordan Crawford finished with 12. The Celtics fell to 0-4 under rookie coach Brad Stevens. Memphis, which struggled at times from the field, finished the night shooting 49 percent, while the Celtics managed 47 percent. The Celtics, who are the worst team in the league at committing turnovers, matched their average with 21, while Memphis wasn’t much better with 19. CLIPPERS 137, ROCkETS 118 In Los Angeles, J.J. Redick scored 19 of his 26 points in the first half to lead seven players in double figures, and the Los Angeles Clippers beat Houston, handing the Rockets their first loss of the season in Dwight Howard’s return to Staples Center. Chris Paul added 23 points and 17 assists, Jamal Crawford had 21 points, and Blake Griffin scored 18 for the Clippers, who led the entire game and tied a franchise record with 78 points in the first half. Howard finished with 13 points and nine rebounds after getting roundly booed in his first game in Los Angeles since leaving the Lakers and signing with Houston in the NBA’s biggest free agent move last summer.

Son denies he has a drinking problem Dear Annie: I am a mother of three children, but it’s the oldest my husband and I worry about. When “John” went to college, he started drinking a lot. I asked him about it then, and he admitted that he might have a problem, but he did nothing about it. That was 10 years ago. He has had two DWIs since, and he drinks every day. I found out from his girlfriend that he actually gets into the shower with a beer in his hand. I recently noticed that the whites of his eyes are yellow, which I’m told is a sign of liver damage. We’ve tried talking with John, but he denies he has a problem. My daughter and her friends have gone out socially with John, and she says he is fun to be with and then suddenly a switch flips and he yells and curses. He once did it when he and my daughter were alone in the car, and she was so scared, she called the police. John has had many girlfriends, but they all leave. He is good most of the time, and he’s a hard worker. His current girlfriend has tried different ways to get him to stop drinking, but he won’t do it. We are so afraid he is going to die from all the booze, or that he will get into an accident and kill himself or someone else. How can I get him to see that he is an alcoholic? Please help before we end up having to bury our son. — Two Scared Parents Dear Parents: Your son will not stop drinking until he is ready, and you cannot make that happen. His alcoholism may also mask other problems, such as depression, and he might be willing to discuss those issues with a doctor. You also could try an intervention, but please do so only with the assistance of a professional. Right now, contact Al-Anon (alanon.alateen.org) for support and information. Give the website for Alcoholics Anonymous (aa.org) to John and tell him you love him.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Be aware of how possessive you might sound. Change directions, and know full well that you are going to get a strong reaction. Tonight: Go over your budget carefully. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You feel energized and ready to handle any problem. You might not choose to discuss a family issue, as you still feel emotional. Tonight: Whatever makes you happy. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You could feel as if you are adjusting well to the unexpected situations that are occurring around you. Tonight: Postpone a long-distance call for now. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH You might want to come to a conclusion with a situation that you feel has been on the back burner for too long. Tonight: Hang with your friends. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH Tension builds between you and a supervisor. Just in case you have forgotten, you will be reminded who has the last word. A loved one could become angry. Tonight: Out late. Jacqueline Bigar

That’s all you can do. The rest is up to your son. Dear Annie: I’ve been a public librarian for 15 years. Despite signs that clearly state, “No Cell Phones,” patrons largely ignore them. I once had a father who turned his cell on and played loud music for his toddler daughter in the same room where people were doing research. He then got offended when I asked him to turn it off. Do these people have no clue about which building they walked into? Where, in this entire country, is there a refuge from noise? Why can’t there still be sanctuaries where people can go to think, do homework and write creatively? I’m not saying libraries have to be as quiet as churches, but people who want to talk on their cells need to have respect for others and do so outside of the library. — Shhh, Library Dear Library: People aren’t quiet in church anymore, either. The solution is enforcement. We recall a time when noisy people were told to be quiet by the librarian and were asked to leave if they didn’t comply. We recommend you do this whether or not patrons are “offended.” Your rules apply. If your library has a separate children’s room, that would be a good place to direct parents with rambunctious young children, as well as those who chat or play music without using headphones. (We can see libraries having “cellphone rooms” in the near future.) Dear Annie: Please pass along this information to “Proud Mom,” whose military son isolates himself from his peers. We have a Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association in every state, and most of the chapters are near military bases. We are veterans who help veterans, young and old, active or retired, whether they’ve seen combat or not. Our website is combatvet.org. — Ed “Amerbadas” Lonecke Jr., U.S. Navy Ret.

Couple revive Golo shoe brand New line includes reissue of iconic ‘Babs’ go-go boot By Phaedra Haywood The New Mexican
Dennis and Lynne Comeau of Tesuque pose for a portrait last month in their design studio. The couple have purchased one of the country’s oldest shoe brands, Golo, famous for the iconic white patent go-go boot. LUIS SÁNCHEZ SATURNO/THE NEW MEXICAN
Fed maintains course while Congress sputters along
he hullabaloo resulting from last month’s federal government’s partial shutdown showed us that Congress has finally gone over the edge, devolving into never-ending adolescent theatrics as opposed to coming to some kind of adult compromise. By demanding that appropriations for funding “Obamacare” be removed from the budget, the ultraconservative wing of the Republican Party knew that it would precipitate a stalemate and that the legislature’s primary job of passing a budget would be impossible to fulfill. These politicians are, I assume, intelligent people, not outright dolts as would be easy to conclude from their actions, so there is something more going on behind the curtains. One underlying issue is that the Republicans have no effecRob Rikoon tive leadership. Simultaneously, Real Money the president is unable to get his directives approved through his own party’s congressional members — witness his inability to neither mobilize military action in Syria nor win the approval of his first choice, Larry Summers, to be the next Federal Reserve chairman. Both sides can therefore be characterized as aimless. This is not the first time that a vacuum in the American political structure has been taken hostage by a small but extremely focused minority to change the country’s direction. It happened in the 1850s regarding slavery. The most important matter at stake is the direction of the country’s domestic policies. Will we try to provide a wide net of care for most people? Will we attempt to build infrastructure? How will the citizenry step up and pay? Higher taxes are sure to come, as is a much lower level of service in health, education and welfare. Both sides have intelligent things to say on this seemingly simple but notoriously devilish matter. Conservatives want entitlement spending curtailed but no new taxes. Liberals want the reverse. Neither can get their way, nor should they. No matter what your views are on social policy, it is a mathematical certainty that taxes will go up and benefits down. The longer we wait to take these unpopular steps, the deeper the cuts will be and the more burdensome the levies will be. The movement of the nation’s health system toward some kind of simplified payer and more universal
Fashion is about evolution. If you know what happened in the past and what’s happening now, you’ll have a pretty good idea about what is going to happen next, at least according to shoe designer Dennis Comeau. He should know. Comeau and his wife and business partner Lynne Comeau live in Tesuque, but they travel to European fashion capitals such as Paris, London, Amsterdam and Milan four times a year just to see what the world’s most fashionable

people are wearing and buying. This coming year, the couple hope global trendsetters will be wearing their new designs for one of the country’s oldest shoe brands, Golo. The brand was founded in 1915 but achieved its greatest success in the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s with its use of innovative materials and saucy styles epitomized by the iconic white patent go-go boot, which became a hit after Barbra Streisand was shown wearing them in a 1965 fashion spread in Vogue. “White patent happened to be a big thing at the time,” said Dennis Comeau. “But it was unheard of to do a boot in white patent. It was really shunned at first,” he said of the white bootie they’ve since dubbed
the “Babs.” People thought it was really strange. But after the Streisand shoot, it caught on and became huge, and every designer around the world knocked it off.” The Comeaus purchased the label in February (after it sat dormant for about 20 years) and launched their first line under the label in August. “The new story for next spring is the mod look,” said Dennis Comeau. “We were really very lucky with the timing that the shoes should hit [the retail floor] right when the mod look should hit retail.” The new line includes reissues of six or seven Golo bestsellers from the past — including the “Babs” and

Sanchez named Business Woman of the Year Lynn Sanchez, the director of Human Trafficking Victim Services, has been named the 2013 Santa Fe Business Woman of the Year by Santa Fe Professional Business Women. Committee chairwoman Monica Hardeman with H&R Block said Sanchez has been recognized for her work with survivors of human trafficking and creating a safe place for them to start a new life. Sanchez has also served as a domestic violence counselor at Esperanza Shelter for Lynn Sanchez Battered Families. She created the “Get Free” campaign, which set up a text hotline, 505-GET-FREE, an easy-to-remember resource for victims of trafficking. Sanchez is the founder of the Sojourners program at Life Link, which aids the homeless, the marginalized and the displaced in our community. Hardeman announced the decision made by judges Silas Peterson with The Hire Firm, Jerry Schalow with First National Bank and Linda Strauss with Strauss HR at a special event that included numerous former recipients of the Santa Fe Business Woman of the Year award.

Arabella D’Lucca, owner of Men!, said through consignment, men are given the chance to reinvent themselves. ‘The way you dress is an expression of self — the way you present yourself to the world.’ PHOTOS BY JANE PHILLIPS/THE NEW MEXICAN

For The New Mexican
hen one thinks of a men’s consignment store, which probably isn’t very often, one might well envision Farrah Fawcett posters, an autographed photo of the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders and maybe a couple of pairs of rarely worn golf shoes. But then, judging by Arabella D’Lucca’s Men! shop on Old Santa Fe Trail, one would be very wrong. Think instead of being ensconced among Armani jackets and blazers, Hermès Paris belts and scarves, black sequined Versace dress shirts and pairs of Allen Edmonds leather oxfords. And all the while, your inner Dean Martin is trippin’ to Frank Sinatra crooning “Luck Be a Lady,” Ella Fitzgerald’s “You Do Something to Me” or Sammy Davis Jr. belting out “Something’s Gotta Give” over the store’s speakers. D’Lucca’s inspiration for the shop comes from Ol’ Blue Eyes himself. “Frank Sinatra is my muse,” D’Lucca said. “When Sinatra wore a fedora, every man wanted to wear a fedora.”

One of D’Lucca’s goals is to get Santa Fe men to dandy-up and realize the benefits of high fashion, at a relatively affordable price. Many Santa Fe men, she said, seem to be stuck in a fashion style best described as, “I don’t care what I look like.” But D’Lucca is sympathetic. “In Santa Fe, we really haven’t had much of a selection for men, especially affordable. … Not only wealthy men deserve to look good,” she said. “I wanted to create a space where men can come in and be inspired.” In consignment, she said, men are given the chance to reinvent themselves. “The way you dress is an expression of self — the way you present yourself to the world.” D’Lucca, who also owns the Ooh La La shop, predominately for women, next door, mines the store’s 2,000 consigners to keep Men! stocked with finery. “Many of them are pretty wealthy and travel a lot,” D’Lucca said, “so they bring us amazing things.” Her original stock for the store’s Aug. 1 opening consisted primarily of men’s clothes gath-

SANTA FE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
Entitlements vs Revenue - Santa Fe
A few months ago I ruffled a few feathers in this column by suggesting that the Santa Fe City Council should be focusing its energy on local issues and efficient government rather than plastic bags, gay marriage and gun control. I may ruffle some more by pointing out that whoever is elected in the March election will be faced with very tough financial decisions and have to decide whether to raise taxes and fees or cut the services we enjoy. The State of New Mexico has been reimbursing municipalities for revenue lost when the food tax ended. This “hold harmless” policy is now ending and Santa Fe have to make up the difference to the tune of an additional $750,000 each year. Gross receipts tax revenues are declining because of the recession and/or people are shopping online or in Albuquerque. New construction is nowhere near as strong as it was ten years ago, and many of the permits
issued are for remodeling projects. Real estate and tourism are showing signs of recovery but, again, not as strong economic drivers as they were in the past. Trends are for very moderate growth at best. Any tax increase, whether GRT or property tax, will negatively affect business, competitiveness and job creation. Studies have shown that Santa Fe has more municipal employees per capita than any other New Mexico city. We carry a large municipal payroll because we have more libraries, senior centers, recreation and youth programs, an airport, a convention center, other amenities and an unusually generous benefits package for staff. Can we afford to continue to have the government provide these services? If so, who pays? Tough decisions indeed.The council will have to decide: higher taxes or cuts in services. There is no other choice. Simon Brackley President and CEO
The Chamber Educates the Community about Healthcare Reform
Healthcare reform has taken its first steps with Marketplace Open Enrollment, leaving many businesses confused and concerned on how this will affect their business. The Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce strives to help Santa Fe local businesses thrive; in an effort to do so, the Chamber hosts several events to help educate and connect the community. Recently, the Chamber collaborated with ACI and Daniels Insurance Inc. and hosted four well attended events in September and October about healthcare reform in order to help educate and prepare businesses on the new rules, needed steps, possible consequences, and other necessary information. These events gave individuals the opportunity

The September morning and afternoon events brought over 90 attendees who had plenty of questions and many attended the second event in October with more questions and concerns. “Wow, you guys are the BEST. Thank you so much. I am in favor of the plan, but now that it is implemented, I am confused. I cannot thank you enough for this,” said a Chamber member in response to the events. This was one of the many successful events the Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce was proud to host in order to assist the Santa Fe business community by providing the essential resources and information businesses need to prosper.

THE THE NEW NEW MEXICAN MEXICAN Tuesday, November 5, 2013
BizMix winners announced More than $418,000 in cash and services has been awarded to the winners of the BizMix 2013 business plan competition. The competition is a new and innovative way for those with business ideas to showcase their product or services at small mix events and get ideas from business owners and potential customers. All the finalists go through a five-month business development process and receive mentoring. The grand-prize winners were Santa Fe Hard Cider, which won the $8,000 grand prize and a four-month kiosk rental at the DeVargas Center for owners Mike Zercher and Josh Johns, who are behind the glutenfree alcoholic beverage made with New Mexico apples. The other winner was Acme Happy Chicken Company, with owner Bill Roth winning $5,000 and a four-month kiosk rental at the mall to sell his prefab “modern chicken coop for today’s urban farmer.” Other crowd favorite winners were Lube Ladies, a sex-toy retail business, and Litehouse International, the maker of pop-up disaster shelters.

Gola: Shoes will retail for between $195 and $595 Continued from Page C-1 “fleur,” a red patent mid-heel pump adorned with a white and yellow daisy (which is a reinterpretation of one of the more than 20 Golo brand shoes that are part of The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s permanent collection) — and about a dozen new designs. The shoes — which will retail for between $195 and $595 per pair — are being marketed by Aeffe Group, a Milan-based company that represents (and in some cases owns) luxury brands including Alberta Ferretti and Moschino. The shoes are made in Italy and Brazil at factories the couple has worked with in the past. A lowerpriced spinoff of the brand, called Golette, is being made in India. Half of the new Golo collection is on display at the Aeffe showroom on West 56th Street in New York City, the other half has been on tour this fall, being presented in cities around the world in conjunction with fall fashion weeks, during which fashions for spring 2014 are offered.
“Our intention was to do a small launch initially, but at the same time worldwide,” Dennis Comeau said. “We’re just focusing on better accounts we’ve decided we want to sell to. We’re not trying to sell millions of dollars of shoes. The image of the brand is very important to us, and we want to establish and build on that.” Both Dennis and Lynne Comeau have extensive experience in the shoe industry. Dennis Comeau, who grew up in New York state, studied computer science in school and got a job in his field right out of school, but said he “hated” the work so he quit. “I was one of those people who went to lunch and never came back,” he said. Shortly afterward, he got a job working at Nine West as a temp, which, he said, is were he fell in love with shoes. After learning all he could at the company, he said, he used his credit cards to buy a cheap ticket to Italy, where he befriended the owner of a shoe factory who took him on as an apprentice and taught him the busi-
ness from the ground up. He eventually started his own line — he once got an order from Bergdorf Goodman by marching into the company’s offices and putting his shoes on the desk of the buyer — and it was while promoting that line in New York that he met his wife. Lynne Comeau is originally from England and worked as a clothing buyer in London before striking out for New York City, where she got involved in the shoe industry as a buyer and later as a partner in several shoe stores. She said her husband “lured” her back to Europe — Florence, Italy, to be exact — after they met. They lived there — with frequent trips to New York — until 2007, when they moved to New Mexico. The couple had their own shoe line at one point but said they got so many requests to design for other fashion houses — including Ellen Tracy and Betsey Johnson — that they eventually sidelined it. This is the second time the couple has revived an old brand. They
purchased the luxury shoe brand Bernardo in 2000 and reinvigorated it with new designs before selling it in 2011. “We made plenty of mistakes with Bernardo, and we’re hoping to learn from what we did right and use that to our advantage with Golo,” Dennis Comeau said. In addition to relaunching Golo, the pair recently have been designing watch faces and bands for the local jewelry company Peyote Bird. The Comeaus work side by side in their bright, spacious studio in Tesuque, which contains hundreds of pairs of vintage shoes (they have a storage unit that houses the rest of their shoe collection). The studio and the home they live in now are rented, as they are in the process of having a home built. When the building is completed, the couple say, they plan to set up a more formal design studio, where they hope to employ several talented local designers they’ve met since moving here.

Two of the meeting industry’s most important publications recognized the Santa Fe Convention and Visitors Bureau with awards as one of the country’s top destination meeting organizations. For the fifth year in a row, Meetings & Conventions magazine presented the Convention and Visitors Bureau with its prestigious 2013 Gold Service Award. Tens of thousands of meeting planners who subscribe to the magazine submitted their choice, through unaided recall, for best convention and visitors bureaus. A total of 86 domestic convention and visitors bureaus and tourism boards were so honored this year.

Style: 2,000 consigners help keep Men! stocked Continued from Page C-1 ered while she operated women’s consignment shops in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. “We try to take things that really don’t look like they’ve been worn,” said D’Lucca, a native of San Francisco. “I don’t really focus on trendy. I focus on quality — things that are going to make you look like a million bucks. … We really try to make every piece something that wows.” Clothes have always been a major thread in D’Lucca’s life. Even at age 2, she insisted on picking out her own outfits and later was bounced by her mother from thrift shop to thrift shop in the San Francisco Bay Area. “It was the thrill of the
hunt and the victory of the find,” D’Lucca said. An aunt, Vicky Graef, was a film and TV costume designer, whose many credits included The Gilmore Girls, Dick Tracy and The Godfather Part III. Not surprisingly, D’Lucca also takes inspiration from what might be called mobster-chic, a throwback to the movie dons and thugs who, while willing to commit cold-blooded murder, looked good doing it. Men! is not without its kitsch. For $175, you can buy a cowboy shirt from Manny’s Cowboy Tailors of North Hollywood, designers of costumes for Elvis Presley and other entertainers. D’Lucca’s prices vary depending on how
much high-fashion and bling your wallet can bear — from $500 for a black cashmere Armani trench coat to $30 or less for a Lands’ End printed shirt. Wes Bolin, visiting from Colorado Springs, Colo., had dropped in just to browse and see “what I might need.” Maybe a vest or a coat. “Though I have more to get rid of rather than buying more things.” He left with a $20 pair of Meron leather gloves. Danny Silverman, most recently of Baltimore and in Santa Fe pursuing a “beautiful woman artist,” said he was in need of blue jeans and a coat, and appreciated finding a consignment store devoted to men. “It’s a rare find.”
Rikoon: Easy money policy won’t solve issues Continued from Page C-1 coverage is inevitable. Obamacare is one small step in this direction, and while the quality of care might go down and the costs might go up, this is the wave of the future, so get used to it. The law was passed, a subsequent election vote was taken confirming the public’s acceptance of its implementation, a Supreme Court challenge to its legality was raised, and it survived all these challenges. Obamacare is a reality and the Republicans know this, so they must be trying to question the underlying principles involved. The talks over the debt limit that were negotiated in August 2011 and led to the sequestration process, i.e. cutting equal percentages from all parts of the budget, is now the default methodology for settling debt negotiations. It allows every politician a convenient way out from the dark hole of endless arguing, because in the end, without a “grand bargain” (a long-term budget and spending framework),
everyone’s programs lose money every year. There is no one to blame for the cuts, so they are politically palatable. The latest political impasse did not spell an end for the economy nor will the next one. Keep in mind that the U.S. will never knowingly or willingly default on its debt. In fact, the markets’ performance indicates that there is no recession in sight and that resurgence in economic output will occur during the first half of 2014. Unfortunately, the future climate for investments is still largely predicated on the actions of the Federal Reserve. They seem to be agonizing over when and how to reduce their bond purchases, because they know there is a danger to the economy when they start doing so. They cannot avoid cutting back, but they don’t want be blamed for putting the country back into a recession, so the status quo is in vogue on the financial as well as the political front. As the Federal Reserve has con-
tinuously supplied easy money to the markets for the last several years, it has become a “businessas-usual” policy that is now hard to reverse. It will be difficult to wean stocks from their addiction to this monetary stimulus. There is no doubt the economy needed bold action amid the financial meltdown of 2007 and 2008, but that is no longer the case. The Federal Reserve’s policy is not going to solve the structural issues facing the economy, and everyone knows this, but they don’t know what else to do to keep the fire stoked. The impacts of keeping the crisis policy in place beyond the appropriate time for tightening are an artificial suppression of market forces, interest rates being kept low and distortion of asset prices upward. This is great for investors as long as it lasts, but it is like a rubber band stretched too far: It’s going to hurt when it eventually reverts back to its natural shape. By most accounts, the economy is on firm footing, so why is the Fed
continuing to press on the accelerator? They are afraid that the congressional and executive branches’ ongoing philosophic impasse means there will be no forthcoming plan for the country other than what they, as a non-elected body, come up with. It is an abdication of responsibility on Congress’ part that it cannot pass a budget or come up with a long-term plan to deal with our debt. It might help if we docked lawmakers’ pay for each day this situation continues, or better yet, maybe Congress should just be disbanded and new elections held if they show they are not up to the task at hand. After all, that is what other forms of democracies do when the government in power loses the people’s confidence. Wouldn’t that be refreshing!
