Santa Fe engineer lands cool research gig — in Antarctica

Santa Fe native Laughlin Barker put his natural talent as a tinkerer to good use at the bottom of the world last year. Barker, who began taking gadgets apart and putting them back together at age 5, was an engineer with a team of scientists studying Antarctica’s food web. Now 25, Barker was preparing to head back to McMurdo StaLaughlin tion in Antarctica Barker with the team this October when the partial federal government shutdown halted the trip. It takes time to gear up for the three-month research season and the two-week government shutdown came at a bad time. Now the team has to wait until next year to go back down and continue their research. “It is unfortunate that petty politics had to get in the way of science,” Barker said recently, sitting at a downtown Santa Fe

McMurdo Station, established in 1956, becomes a self-supporting town from October through February. It is a U.S. research camp on the southern tip of Ross Island, more than 2,400 miles from New Zealand. The active volcano Mount Erebus is visible from the camp. Two runways — one on the sea ice and one on the more permanent ice shelf — provide landing strips for planes carrying people and supplies. The station serves as a base where research teams can eat, sleep, store data and have an occasional beer. Humans began protecting Antarctica decades ago. Under the 1959 Antarctic Treaty, the continent was set aside for scientific research and peaceful activities. “No resource extraction is allowed, no waste dumping, no weapons,” Barker said.

The hunt gets harder for jobless over age 50 Older applicants report increasingly difficulty searches for work By Matt Sedensky The Associated Press

ROCKFORD, Ill. — When Charlie Worboys lost his job, he feared searching for a new one at his age might be tough. Six years later, at 65, he’s still looking. Luanne Lynch, 57, was laid off three times in the past decade and previous layoffs brought jobs with a lower salary; this time she can’t even get that. They’re not alone. A new Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll finds many people over 50 reporting great difficulty finding work and feeling that their age is a factor.

After Worboys was laid off and his hunt for another teaching job was fruitless, he sought counseling positions. When those leads dried up, he applied for jobs in juvenile detention centers, in sales and elsewhere. He finally settled for parttime work, all the while still scouring online listings and sending out applications each week. “They’re looking for the younger person,” he said. “They look at the number 65 and they don’t bother to look behind it.” The AP-NORC Center poll found 55 percent of those 50 and older who have sought a job in the past five years characterized their search as difficult, and 43 percent thought employers were concerned about their age. Further, most in the poll reported finding few available

ity Councilor Rebecca Wurzburger wakes up to visions of $5 bills in her head. Neighborhood activist Margaret Josina Campos carries pieces of chicken in her purse to defend against angry dogs. Armed with a smartphone that maps likely voters, Roman “Tiger” Abeyta, executive director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Fe, walks door-to-door after work and on weekends. As six of the seven candidates running for mayor in March try to qualify for public financing — the first time in a mayoral election in Santa Fe — their strategies for complying with the public campaign finance code are as different as the candidates themselves. Their efforts are meeting with uneven success, and along the way exposing strengths and weaknesses in a system intended to remove the influence of big money from city politics. Each candidate must collect $5 contributions from 600 individuals and the signatures of 265 people on their nominating petitions. Besides Wurzburger, Campos and Abeyta, the three other mayoral candidates seeking public financing are city councilors Patti Bushee and Bill Dimas and former state Democratic Party chairman Javier Gonzales. Only candidate Michael D’Anna, a night auditor at Motel 6, has opted not to go the public-financing route. “I’m not taking public or private financing. It’s self-funding,” he said. At least four of the candidates say they’ve met the threshold to qualify for public financing, though City Clerk Yolanda Vigil has yet to verify the information. Qualified mayoral candidates can get $60,000 each in public money. City Council candidates are required to collect 150 contributions of $5 each from people registered to vote in their council district to get $15,000 each in public funding. They must also get the signatures on their nominating petitions of one-half of 1 percent of the registered voters in their district. While council candidates tested the city’s public campaign finance code in the last election, this crop of mayoral contenders say the process has proved a boon in some ways, but also has room to improve. Among the benefits: Engaging voters face-to-face and cementing the foundation of their campaigns. Among the drawbacks: Candidates say they’re spending more time explaining public financing or filling out forms than listening to voters’ concerns. Some candidates have also slipped along the way as they or their supporters navigate the new system.

NATION&WORLD A right to drive

Arrest ends Calif. shootout that wounded six officers A Saudi woman drives a vehicle in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Saturday in defiance of a ban on woman driving in the ultraconservative kingdom.

ROSEVILLE, Calif. — Police said a wanted parolee fired first in a shootout that left six officers injured and led to an hours-long standoff in a suburban Sacramento city before he surrendered. Roseville police spokesman Lt. Cal Walstad said that one officer with a jaw wound and a federal agent shot in the leg remain hospitalized Saturday in serious condition. Four other Roseville officers injured by shrapnel were treated and released. The suspect in the violent confrontation is a gang member with a criminal record that includes assault and carjacking. Samuel Nathan Duran, 32, was taken to the Placer County jail Saturday after being treated for scrapes and cuts after surrendering just after midnight. “Last night our community experienced what can happen in any when a violent wanted felon is completely committed to not going back to jail,” Police Chief Daniel Hahn said Saturday. Duran was being held on a parole violation, but Hahn said he expected multiple charges of attempted murder would be added.

Study: Wildfire smoke a health risk for millions

Saudi women get behind the wheel to push reforms in conservative kingdom By Abdullah al-Shihri and Aya Batrawy The Associated Press

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia ore than 60 women across Saudi Arabia claimed they drove cars Saturday in defiance of a ban keeping them from getting behind the wheel, facing little protest by police in their push for easing restrictions on women in the kingdom. The campaign’s message is that driving should be a woman’s choice. The struggle is rooted in the kingdom’s hard-line interpretation of Islam known as Wahabbism, with critics warning that women driving could unravel the very fabric of Saudi society. Though no laws ban women from driving in Saudi Arabia, authorities do not issue them licenses. Women who drove on Saturday had driver’s licenses from abroad, activists said. Activist Aziza Youssef, a professor at King Saud University, and another activist said protest organizers received 13 videos


and about 50 phone messages from women showing or claiming they had driven. She said they have no way to verify the messages. May Al Sawyan, a 32-year-old mother of two and an economic researcher, told The Associated Press that she drove from her home in Riyadh to the grocery store and back. Activists uploaded a four-minute video of her driving to the campaign’s YouTube account. Al Sawyan said she was prepared to be jailed if caught by authorities. She said she was far enough from a police car that she was not spotted. “I just took a small loop,” she said. “I didn’t drive for a long way, but it was fine.” Al Sawyan’s husband and family waited at home and called her nervously when she arrived at the store to check on her, she said. She drove with a local female television reporter in the car. They were both without male relatives in the vehicle, which in itself defies the country’s strict norms requiring

women to have a male relative in public. “I am very happy and proud that there was no reaction against me,” Al Sawyan said. It is not clear if police turned a blind eye to women driving or simply did not see the scattered, quick spins around towns. An AP journalist in Riyadh said there were no roadblocks or checkpoints set up to watch for female drivers. He saw only a few law enforcement vehicles on the road. A security official said authorities did not arrest or fine any female drivers on Saturday. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. Ahead of the protest, authorities offered mixed messages, perhaps cautious not to push too hard against the kingdom’s religious establishment. Hard-line clerics say women driving will lead to “licentiousness.” A prominent cleric also caused a stir when he said that medical studies show driving a car harms a woman’s ovaries.

LOS ANGELES — Wildfire smoke poses a growing health risk to millions of Americans, even for those who live hundreds of miles from the flames, a new report by an environmental group says. About two-thirds of Americans, or nearly 212 million people, lived in counties that two years ago contended with wildfire smoke linked to respiratory problems such as asthma, pneumonia and chronic lung diseases, according to a report released by the Natural Resources Defense Council. The group used satellite imagery of smoke plumes from the 2011 wildfire season — one of the worst in recent years — to take a nationwide snapshot of air quality. The analysis found that the extent of the country affected by wildfire smoke was 50 times greater than the area burned in the fires. It’s no surprise that many of the smokiest states had major blazes that year. That includes Texas, which topped the list with more than 25 million people living in places with air fouled by wildfires for a week or more, followed by Florida and Georgia.

Tens of thousands flee India flooding; 39 dead NEW DELHI — Days of torrential rains have unleashed floods in southeast India that have killed dozens of people and forced the evacuation of more than 70,000 others from hundreds of low-lying villages. As of Saturday, 39 people had died in flood-related incidents in Andhra Pradesh and Orissa states since the rains began Monday, according to officials quoted by the Press Trust of India. Many drowned when swept away by surging waters or were killed when weakened walls collapsed onto them. Hundreds of villages were inundated and crops were being ruined in the so-called Rice Bowl of India. Railway services have been suspended along routes where tracks were submerged or damaged. India’s Meteorological Department on Saturday forecast the rains to continue for at least another day.

CAIRO — Egypt’s top prosecutor received complaints Saturday against a popular television satirist less than 24 hours after he returned to the air, as the private TV station that airs his program sought to distance itself from its contents.

NSA spying could put U.S. foreign policy at risk Surveillance dragnet angers allies, puts credibility in question By Deb Riechmann The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Secretary of State John Kerry went to Europe to talk about Mideast peace, Syria and Iran. What he got was an earful of outrage over U.S. snooping abroad. President Barack Obama has defended America’s surveillance dragnet to leaders of Russia, Mexico, Brazil, France and Germany, but the international anger over the disclosures shows no signs of abating in the short run. Longer term, the revelations by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden about NSA tactics that allegedly include tapping the cellphones of as many as 35 world leaders threaten to

Demonstrators march Saturday through Washington toward the National Mall, demanding that Congress investigate the National Security Agency’s mass surveillance programs. JOSE LUIS MAGANA/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

undermine U.S. foreign policy in a range of areas. In Washington, demonstrators held up signs reading “Thank you, Edward Snowden!” as they marched and rallied near the U.S. Capitol to demand that Congress investigate the NSA’s mass surveillance programs.

This vacuum-cleaner approach to data collection has rattled allies. “The magnitude of the eavesdropping is what shocked us,” former French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said in a radio interview. “Let’s be honest, we eavesdrop too. Everyone

is listening to everyone else. But we don’t have the same means as the United States, which makes us jealous.” So where in the world isn’t the NSA? That’s one big question raised by the disclosures. Whether the tapping of allies is a step too far might be moot. The British ambassador to Lebanon, Tom Fletcher, tweeted this past week: “I work on assumption that six plus countries tap my phone. Increasingly rare that diplomats say anything sensitive on calls.” Diplomatic relations are built on trust. If America’s credibility is in question, the U.S. will find it harder to maintain alliances, influence world opinion and maybe even close trade deals. Spying among allies is not new. Madeleine Albright, secretary of state during the Clinton administration, recalled being at the United Nations and having the French ambassador ask her why she said something in a

private conversation apparently intercepted by the French. The French government protested revelations this past week that the NSA had collected 70.3 million French-based telephone and electronic message records in a 30-day period. Albright says Snowden’s disclosures have hurt U.S. policymakers. “A lot of the things that have come out, I think are specifically damaging because they are negotiating positions and a variety of ways that we have to go

about business,” Albright said at a conference hosted by the Center for American Progress in Washington. “I think it has made life very difficult for Secretary Kerry. … There has to be a set of private talks that, in fact, precede negotiations and I think it makes it very, very hard.” The spy flap could give the Europeans leverage in talks with the U.S. on a free trade agreement, which would join together nearly half of the global economy.



GOP hopes health care woes have staying power By Julie Pace and Nancy Benac The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — For nearly five years, Republicans have struggled to make a scandal stick to President Barack Obama’s White House. One by one, the controversies — with shorthand names such as Solyndra, Benghazi, and Fast and Furious — hit a fever pitch, then faded away. But some Republicans see the disastrous rollout of Obama’s health law as a problem with the kind of staying power they have sought. The health care failures are tangible for millions of Americans and can be experienced by anyone with Internet access. The law itself is more closely associated with Obama personally and long has been unpopular with the majority of the American people. The longer the technical problems persist, the more likely they are to affect the delicate balance of enrollees needed in the insurance marketplace in order to keep costs down. “There’s no question the issue has legs, in part because it affects so many Americans very directly and in part because the glitches with the website are simply one of many fundamental problems with this law,” GOP pollster Whit Ayres said.

The cascade of computer problems began Oct. 1, when sign-ups opened for the marketplaces at the center of the law. Administration officials blamed the problems on high volume, but have since acknowledged more systemic issues with White House officials contend the website is just one piece of the broader law offering an array of benefits. They say that when the online issues are fixed — the latest estimate is the site will be working normally for most users by the end of November — few people will remember the problems that have marred the opening weeks of the six-month enroll-

ment window. “It says a lot about Republicans that their focus here is not on helping Americans get insured, but on making political hay of this mess,” said Dan Pfeiffer, Obama’s senior adviser. For GOP lawmakers, the White House’s stumbles on the Affordable Care Act have come at an optimal time, just one week after their strategy to shut down the government in exchange for concessions on health care imploded. The health care debacle has overshadowed some of the Republican missteps and the GOP appears more than happy to keep the spotlight where it is. Republicans have scheduled a

series of congressional hearings on the program’s shortcomings, and have called for officials, including Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, to be fired. She is set to testify this coming week before a House committee.

Mobilized: Petitions are due Nov. 7 Continued from Page A-1

Laughlin Barker and Stacy Kim operate the SCINI underwater robot on the edge of the Ross Ice Shelf before it plunges below the shelf. PHOTO COURTESY ERIC STACKPOLE

Cool: Antarctica provides unique research opportunity Continued from Page A-1 “It was a really progressive and critical treaty.” The treaty is important for the food web Barker and the rest of the team from California’s Moss Landing Marine Laboratories are studying. It is a rare place on earth where the predator population — whales and seals — are completely intact. “We humans are really good at taking out the top predators,” Barker said. “So this is a unique opportunity to study a complete food web.” The team has a two-year grant from the National Science Foundation to study the food web, from whales at the top to the algae and krill at the bottom of the chain. Their primary tool is the SCINI (Submersible Capable of under Ice Navigation and Imagery), a torpedo-shaped robot operated remotely, with two cameras for seeing into the ocean depths beneath the ice. The team added a sonar system for measuring krill and fish aggregations and a fluorometer for measuring algae concentrations. They call it FATTI (Fluorometry and Acoustic Transducer Towable Instrument). Other instruments measure the water’s salinity and temperature. Barker and colleague Eric Stackpole are responsible for piloting the SCINI robot under ice and fixing it when it breaks. Scientists drill 10-inch diameter holes through the 6-foot-thick ice. Then the robot is lowered into the sea 500 to 1,000 feet below the ice. From there, scientists take measurements and watch what swims by.

Well-oiled machine Barker wasn’t much of a video gamer as a kid, but in Antarctica he uses a PlayStation-like setup to control SCINI under the sea. The Moss Landing team arrives and starts collecting food web data before an algae bloom turns the clear Antarctic waters into a pea-green soup color. The bloom marks the beginning of a feeding frenzy. The krill gorge on the algae and phytoplankton. The silverfish feed on the krill, the penguins and Weddell seals feed on both and the whales eat whatever they want. “We get before, during and after snapshots of what is happening in the food web down there,” Barker said. “I never would have thought all this stuff could be living in there,” he said of his first time witnessing the frenzy in Antarctica. The food web team travels out each day about 25 miles and makes holes in a transect pattern with 500 meters between the east-west holes and a kilometer between the north-south holes. They use snowmobiles or a small snowcat early in the season. Later in the season, as the ice thins and begins to grow holes like Swiss cheese, they’re dropped off by helicopter close to sites and then drag their equipment on sleds. They set up small ice-fishing tents. “That becomes our command center. We set up our computers, drill our hole, take water samples.” They repeat the exercise two to four times a day at different sites. “We really become a well-oiled machine by the end of the season,” he said. The team’s principle investigator, Stacy Kim, has been conducting research in Antarctica for more than a dozen years, studying organisms living on the ocean floor. Her team has to be able to function well as a unit in harsh conditions. Temperatures on the ice can range from minus-30 degrees when the wind is blowing up to 40 degrees later in the season on a windless day. Storms can roll in and shut down visibility to four feet. Fissures develop in the ice. “It is dangerous out there,” Barker said. “We go to great lengths to stay safe.”

existed,” he said of his Antarctica experience. His attraction to all things mechanicalelectrical began early. “I took apart the vacuum when I was 5, replaced the belt to the beater bar and put it back together,” he said. His favorite little-kid toy was a RadioShack multimeter from an engineer uncle. He lost some eyebrows to a Piezoelectric barbecue grill ignition sparker in an early potato cannon design and eventually perfected it into a high-voltage launching system. He built his first computer in sixth grade and got his ham radio license in eighth grade. By the time he was in high school, he was working as an IT system intern at the Santa Fe Institute. Barker took a year off after graduating from Santa Fe Prep, then earned degrees in mechanical engineering and environmental studies at Santa Clara University in California. His multi-skilled background put him in good company when he joined the Moss Landing team. “Everyone down there has these really broad skills sets,” Barker said. The research teams works six days a week, 10 to 14 hours a day. Sometimes there is no day off. “A lot of things break down there. Salt water and electronics don’t get along,” Barker said. “We’ve had 300 volt shorts and things go pop inside our little robot. The engineers get to stay up late and keep working until they get things fixed.” Sometimes he gets to help other scientists, like those working with professional whalers to tag and study whales. “It’s amazing. There’ll be these pods of 20 or 30 killer or Minke whales that go by the edge of the ice,” he said.

Fun at the bottom of the world

Pilot in the making

Working in a place where the sun never sets also throws off one’s sleep pattern. “I’m kind of perpetually underslept for the three months,” he said. Unless there is equipment to fix or a research project to finish, Sunday is the day most people have off. They catch up on sleep or take a hike through the beautiful frozen volcanic landscape. They can grab a cup of coffee at the cafe staffed by volunteers. Or they can grab a drink at one of two bars at McMurdo — Gallaghers or the Southern Cross. “The two bars are about 40 feet from each other. They serve exactly the same thing,” Barker said. “There’s a pool table and foosball in one and maybe karaoke in the other.” McMurdo is a creative community, he said. On New Year’s Eve, everyone gets together for a big concert called Icestock with impromptu bands. “Everyone who is musically inclined gets together and plays music together until 3 o’clock in the morning. But the sun has only moved [a few inches],” Barker said. “I think I danced more in Antarctica than at any other time in my life. Everybody is working so hard and such long hours that when a break comes around everyone just wants to have a good time.” Living with people for three months in close quarters can take a toll. “It is hard to find a quiet place to just relax and chill out,” Barker said. “That kind of caught me off guard. I had this vision of Antarctica being a cold and lonely, desolate place. But because it is so cold, it’s dorm-style housing and shared bathrooms. You walk to breakfast and you see people you know.” Even when the team returns from Antarctica to California, the work isn’t done. They spend the rest of the year analyzing the data collected and preparing for the next trip to the bottom of the planet. Still, he wouldn’t trade the gig for anything. “I couldn’t think of a better place to be. I’m getting to use cutting-edge science and technology to get to places we wouldn’t be able to see otherwise,” he said. “To be part of science that is furthering human knowledge is pretty cool.”

Antarctica is a long way from the highdesert City Different where Barker grew up. “I didn’t even know jobs like this

At an exercise class, for example, one of Wurzburger’s supporters asked her students for their signatures and offered to cover some of the $5 contributions, a violation of the ordinance. Wurzburger called it a “totally innocent mistake.” “That was not an action that was condoned by my campaign,” she said. Campos also stumbled with the public financing requirements. She said some of her volunteers, which include high school students, were pitching in a few dollars here and there if voters didn’t have or couldn’t afford the entire $5. “Sometimes the elderly will only give you $4. What some of the workers have been told is, ‘If you have an extra dollar, put it in there and then get their name,’ ” said Campos, who gave her volunteers new orders after learning that she was violating the ordinance. The city’s public campaign finance code says that no candidate can knowingly accept a qualifying contribution from a person who will be reimbursed by another person. Vigil said candidates have until Nov. 2 to collect voter signatures on their nominating petitions, which must be turned in by Nov. 7. She has 10 days to check the signatures against voter registration rolls. Vigil said she will “purge” signatures for a variety of reasons, from appearing on more than one nominating petition to listing the wrong address. “It’s very time consuming,” said Vigil, who will supplement her staff of four with two temporary employees. The mayoral candidates have until Nov. 18 to submit to the clerk the $3,000 in qualifying contributions. That’s also the date for candidates to report how much “seed money” they raised. Candidates are allowed to solicit and accept contributions to defray the expenses of obtaining the qualifying contributions, up to $100 from any one contributor. For mayoral candidates that’s a total $6,000; for city council candidates, $1,500. Candidates who qualify for public financing must forgo fundraising from private sources. The law is designed to remove the danger of undue influence on elected officials and level the playing field for all candidates. But some of the candidates are concerned about whether there really will be a level playing field. These concerns are focused on Progressive Santa Fe PAC, a political action committee that supports Gonzales’ bid for mayor. Although Gonzales denies any involvement with the PAC, and has disavowed it, there is a link between its former chairman and his campaign. Earlier this fall, Jon Hendry, president of the New Mexico Federation of Labor, stepped down as chairman of the PAC and joined the candidate’s campaign steering committee. He has since resigned from that position as well. The city’s election law doesn’t explicitly address coordination between candidates and PACs. But that could soon change. City Councilor Chris Calvert is sponsoring legislation that would make the prohibition of coordination abundantly clear. “I think we’ve been trying to get the influence of money out of elections. We did public financing, so I think this is just a natural

extension of that general policy,” Calvert said. The path to public financing has been more bumpy for some candidates than others. Vigil said she heard early on that it was “a little difficult” for some candidates to collect the required number of $5 contributions. Wurzburger, who came down with a cold after walking door-todoor Thursday night, said she’s unsure if she’ll collect enough. “I’m certainly doing my absolute best to get it,” she said. “We have another three weeks. And if it keeps coming in the way it is right now, we should be OK, but you never know.” Wurzburger said she doesn’t know what she’ll do if she doesn’t get the 600 contributions. She planned to solicit donations all weekend and hopes to get more Tuesday at a fundraiser and fashion show at Bishop’s Lodge Ranch Resort & Spa. “When I wake up at 4:30 in the morning, that’s my focus,” she said. “I just have to stay focused on the golden ball of getting enough to indeed have the opportunity to be on the ballot under public financing. I don’t have a contingency plan.” Bushee, who has run multiple campaigns, said she put a concerted effort into collecting the $5 contributions right away. “We’re not being as aggressive as we were initially because we wanted to make sure we got it done quickly,” she said. “We’ve had enough time to double back and call people back in that haven’t completed the forms correctly. That’s why we made such a push in September, so that we could really, not relax, but make sure we could just get things that needed to be corrected.” Bushee said she and her volunteers asked for contributions any chance they got. “I’ve shown up to African dance classes,” she said. Gonzales was the first to publicly announce meeting the required number of signatures and contributions. “It hasn’t been difficult, but what it’s forced us to do, and certainly every campaign, is to develop a grassroots organization, a true grassroots campaign much earlier in the campaign season,” Gonzales said. “Every $5 contribution represents an investment by Santa Feans into our campaign.” Gonzales’ strategy involved a combination of house parties, phone solicitations and Saturday canvasses of homes of people who are most likely to vote. “That’s all supported by a steering committee of 60-plus people that we have had involved since

Day One who have taken out their own set of $5 forms and petition pages and gone into their network of family and friends to collect the contributions. The great thing that I appreciate about the steering committee is that it’s a cross section of Santa Feans, from members of my family to people I just met,” he said. Like most of the other candidates, Gonzales has a team comparing names of contributors to voter registration rolls. “Clearly as we go forward we’re going to broaden our efforts to target more voters in our overall strategy to win the election,” he said. “But for now, 100 percent of our focus has been on qualifying for public funding and to be as efficient as possible in pursuing those qualifications.” Dimas, a former police officer and magistrate judge, held a campaign rally and dance at the Fraternal Order of Police that attracted about 400 people. He said the event generated between 50 and 75 $5 contributions. Dimas relied mostly on his wide network of family and friends to collect the contributions. “They’re all going to their family and friends,” he said. Dimas said he has about 500 volunteers. Of those, about 100 were asked to collect a minimum of 10 contributions. “It’s been difficult,” he said. “A lot of people aren’t aware of what it is. They say, ‘Yes, I’ll sign your petition, but why do you want five bucks?’ You have to have an explanation for them.” Abeyta also tapped into his large family and pool of friends to collect contributions. But he also spent time on the ground. Thursday afternoon, Abeyta and his younger brother, Amado, knocked on doors in the neighborhood off West Alameda Street near St. Francis Drive. They encountered people they knew or that knew their family. Marti Chavez, who worked in the county’s land use office when Abeyta was county manager, said she was happy to contribute to Abeyta’s campaign. “I can’t remember a candidate walking the streets and coming over,” she said. “I think it’s good. It’s good because you get to meet them. You get to talk to them.” Chavez also said the $5 contribution was a small price to pay to help a candidate qualify for public financing. “Five bucks is nothing, and it’s helping somebody,” she said. “I would give more, but five bucks is good for me.” Contact Daniel J. Chacón at 986-3089 or dchacon@

Hunt: Long-term unemployment higher among older Americans Continued from Page A-1 jobs (69 percent), few that paid well (63 percent) or that offered adequate benefits (53 percent). About a third were told they were overqualified. Still, some companies are welcoming older workers, and 43 percent of job seekers surveyed found a high demand for their skills and 31 percent said there was a high demand for their experience. Once on the job, older workers were far more likely to report benefits related to their age — 60 percent said colleagues had come to them for advice more often and 42 percent said they felt as if they were receiving more respect in the company. People of all ages have been frustrated by the job market, and the unemployment rate for those 55 and older was 5.3 percent in September, lower than the 7.2 percent rate among all ages. By comparison, unemployment among those 20-24 was 12.9 percent, and among those 25-54, 6.2 percent. But long-term unemployment

has been rampant among the oldest job seekers. Unemployed people aged 45 to 54 were out of work 45 weeks on average, those 55 to 64 were jobless for 57 weeks and those 65 and older average 51 weeks. Younger workers were unemployed for shorter periods of time. Sixty-three percent of those who searched for a job cited financial need and 19 percent said it was because they were laid off. Far smaller numbers searched because they wanted to change careers, find a better salary or benefits, escape unhappiness at a prior job or simply get out of the house. Lynch, of San Gabriel, Calif., hated taking a step down after the earlier layoffs, but this time only one interview has come from 70-some applications. “It’s starting at the bottom,” she said. “And frankly, I’m getting too old to be starting at the bottom.” Bob Gershberg, a corporate recruiter in St. Petersburg, Fla., said unemployed people, regardless of age, have had trouble

getting rehired. But he said older workers have faced an added layer of skepticism from employers. “They’ll say, ‘Give me the young guy. Give me the up-andcomer. Someone with fire in the belly,’ ” he said. “But there’s always been a bias against the unemployed. They say, ‘If she was so good, why’d she get cut?’ ” Sharon Hulce, who runs a recruitment firm in Appleton, Wis., said she’s found some employers are concerned that applicants in their late 50s or 60s may not stick around long. And Kerry Hannon, who authored Great Jobs for Everyone 50-plus, said managers may be leery of a résumé from someone they can’t afford, salary-wise. “They’ll look at your background and just figure you’ll be insulted,” she said. About 4 in 10 who have been on the job market said they felt they lacked the right skills or felt too old for the available jobs. Many reported trying to improve their skillset (20 percent) or present themselves with a fresher

resume or interview approach (15 percent) to make themselves more marketable. Bret Lane, 53, of San Diego was out of work for 22 months until finding a job over the summer through Platform to Employment, a training program. He

lost count of how many jobs he had applied for — it was easily in the hundreds. Once, after seeing applications would be taken for a janitorial job paying $14 hourly, he got up at 3 a.m. to get an early start. There were already 400 others in line.

“I wasn’t getting any interviews. I wasn’t getting in front of any decision makers,” he said. “People in our age group are very discriminated against.” One in five respondents in the AP-NORC Center poll said they personally experienced prejudice or discrimination in the job market or at work because of their age. That doubles to 40 percent among those who have sought a job in the last five years. Faye Smith, 69, of Dallas, Ga., said she needed to find work after losing much of her savings in the downturn but felt the hesitance of employers when they saw the dates on her resume. “You could tell when they found out the age,” she said. “There’s a change in the face and the demeanor of the person.” The AP-NORC Center survey was conducted Aug. 8 through Sept. 10 by NORC at the University of Chicago, with funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. It involved landline and cellphone interviews in English and Spanish with 1,024 people aged 50 and older nationwide.

estimated $65 billion in damage. Floodwaters swept over densely populated barrier islands and pushed deep into bays and harbors from Atlantic City, N.J., all the way to Rhode Island. In New York City, the storm surge hit nearly 14 feet, sending the Hudson and East rivers pouring into the city’s subway and commuter tunnels and knocking out power to the southern third of Manhattan. Gas stations ran out of fuel. High-rise residents had to carry water up darkened stairwells. Thousands of fragile patients evacuated crippled hospitals and nursing homes. Out of that chaos came remarkable stories of recovery. New York City’s submerged subways and tunnels sprang back to life with surprising speed. Beach boardwalks were rebuilt. Mountains of debris were removed. Flooded schools, nursing homes and amusement parks have reopened. The whine of power tools hasn’t ceased in many neighborhoods since the floodwaters receded. But for every success story, there are tales of frustration.

On New York City’s Staten Island, where 23 people died, vacant lots have been multiplying on spots where homes once stood. Sheetrock and debris still decorate front lawns. Plywood covers bungalows, “Restricted Use” signs hanging on their front doors.

The best utility company in the nation is right here in Northern New Mexico

With 837 rural utility companies in the United States, only one was voted the very best.

36,000 households and businesses, though it has paid out only about a quarter of that to date. FEMA gave $1.42 billion to help storm victims pay rent, replace lost possessions and make emergency repairs. The agency gave another $2.7 billion to help municipalities clean up debris, repair critical infrastructure and reopen damaged hospitals. The federal flood insurance program paid $7.8 billion to nearly 132,000 policyholders who sustained damage during the storm.

Jean Craighead’s My Side of the Mountain. “Some weeks I wonder how my kids are going to do the school side of school because they are so busy socializing,” said Joanna Hemp, the co-op’s welcome coordinator. Military families move on average nearly every three years. The transition can be tough for children, and home schooling can make it easier, advocates say. The children don’t have to adjust to a new teacher or worry that they’re behind because the new school’s curriculum is different. Some military families also cite the same reasons for choosing home schooling as those in the civilian population: a desire to educate their kids in a religious environment, concern about the school environment, or to provide for a child with

special needs. Two 16-year-olds, Andrew Roberts and Christina Cagle, interviewed at the Andrews co-op say they are happy their parents made the decision to home-school them. Roberts said he thinks he gets a lot more done in a school day than peers in a traditional school, and he sees his friends plenty at Bible study groups and during other social events with other teenagers on base. “There’s not like a lot of peer pressure considering you’re mostly with your siblings and it’s kind of a relaxed environment,” Cagle said. Participating military families say there’s an added bonus to home schooling. It allows them to schedule school time around the rigorous deployment, training and school schedules of the military member.

Sharon Moore, the education liaison at Andrews who helps parents with school-related matters, said at the height of the summer military moving season, she typically gets about 20 calls from families moving to

She links them with families from the co-op and includes the home-schooled children during back-to-school events and other functions such as a trip to a planetarium. “It comes down to they are military children and we love our military children,” said Moore, a former schoolteacher.

Humanity’s origins: It’s complicated

The first of many jabs from Lopez



wo of the three Democratic candidates for governor were in the same room at the Roundhouse last week. But neither seemed to be in campaign mode. Attorney General Gary King, the first Democrat to declare he wants to be the party’s nominee to take on incumbent Gov. Susana Martinez, was testifying, along with State Auditor Hector Balderas, before the Legislative Finance Committee about the investigation into 15 mental health providers under investigation for possible fraud. State Sen. Howie Morales, D-Silver City, who just last week joined the gubernatorial Steve Terrell race, was there Roundhouse because he’s a Roundup member of the LFC. No, there weren’t any obvious tensions showing between King and Morales. In fact, Morales wasn’t in the room very much during King’s presentation. Knowing what I do about these two candidates, I rather doubt that it gets very nasty between them. If there are any fireworks in the Democratic primary, my guess is that it will come from the third candidate, Sen. Linda Lopez, D-Albuquerque. In fact, just last week, Lopez took a swipe at King in a news release dealing with the behavioral health controversy. “In a feeble attempt to placate the public’s demand to know the details behind the Martinez Administration’s undisclosed accusations of fraud against as many as 15 New Mexico behavioral heath providers, the Attorney General’s Office release of a heavily redacted audit only muddies and delays the issue further,” Lopez wrote. King released 50-some pages of the 350-page audit by the Boston-based Public Consultant Group that claims to have uncovered $36 million in Medicaid overpayments. A good chunk of the pages released contained so many blacked-out paragraphs you have to wonder if someone in the AG’s Office didn’t get high from the Sharpie fumes. King said it had to be redacted because of his ongoing investigation. I have the feeling this was just the first of many stones to be cast at her opponents by the scrappy Lopez in this primary. Political bookshelf: Former Gov. Bill Richardson isn’t the only New Mexico politician to publish an autobiographical book this year. U.S. Rep. Steve Pearce, who represents the southern 2nd Congressional District, is about to publish his life story in a memoir titled Just Fly the Plane, Stupid! There’s a website for the book where you can read the first 11 pages from the first chapter. It’s a downright exciting opener as Pearce, a longtime pilot, describes a flight in his personal plane one night in 1998. He had flown his wife to see their daughter in Arkansas. On the return flight over Texas, the trip got more than a little bumpy. “Suddenly, lightning, thunder, and turbulence hit with a vengeance, throwing the airplane around like a ping-pong ball in a bingo tumbler. The storm the controller knew nothing about was suddenly all over me. Snowflakes and ice pellets suddenly flecked the dark skies, striking my windscreen before I could see them coming. With a failed electrical system, let alone a thunderstorm, I knew my circumstances could become deadly. I snapped off the autopilot and broke a cardinal rule of instrument flight, rolling into a steep sixty-degree bank turn to get out of the storm. … “It took all my focus to stay under control as the storm tossed the aircraft around the sky. The violence nearly inverted the plane, rolling it in one direction and immediately back the other way. I cringed as my head struck the roof, turbulence slamming me against my shoulder harness and seat belt just before smashing me back into the seat. … “Then a blue orb of St. Elmo’s fire — harmless static electricity that will scare the water out of you the first time you see it — formed inside the windscreen … although it was harmless, it was enough to feed the panic pushing its way up my throat, threatening to overwhelm me.” Spoiler alert: Pearce was able to keep his panic at bay and land the plane safely.

Under standards, kids will be better prepared


t’s easy to miss what’s taking place, but rest assured New Mexico’s students and educators are taking part in a significant change to education in our generation, a change that is designed to ensure our kids are prepared for college or career. They’re called the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and at this point, a little history is in order. Not too long ago, state education leaders became increasingly frustrated about our inability to compare similar standards across the country. Since each state developed its own tests, its own graduation requirements, etc., it was impossible to tell how students compared across state lines. Does a valedictorian in Boston have the same skills as the top of the class at Santa Fe’s Capital High School? Is a third-grade student in Los Angeles on the same reading level as a counterpart at Carlos Gilbert Elementary? It was impossible to know. A few stop-gap efforts popped up along the way. Both ACT and SAT are a constant measure for high school students. The U.S. Department of Education developed the National Assessment of Educational Progress to give to a sample of fourth- and eighthgrade students across the nation. All good efforts, but none compared students in a truly comprehensive way. And, across New Mexico and other states around the nation, many of our students were graduating unprepared for their futures. Thus, the Common Core State Standards were born. Developed by educators across our country, these standards set a higher bar for what each student should know, in each subject and in each grade. The

curricula selected for classroom instruction remain a local district decision. The standards have been embraced by nearly every state in our nation; the path to achieving them remains locally decided. New Mexico formally adopted these higher standards for students in 2010. Parents should already see the Hanna higher standards showing up in Skandera homework coming home with their children. Assignments may look different. Instead of covering material from just one lesson, homework may require student knowledge drawn from different lessons or different classes. This broader depth of knowledge helps ensure students retain the skills they learn and it makes sure they learn at a higher level than before. Our children need to be able to critically think. I’m proud of all the educators who are embracing this change. Since January 2012, more than 2,500 educators have undergone in-depth training in the CCSS. Next, many of them took this knowledge back to their districts to share in our classrooms. This is an exciting time for the students of New Mexico! Their potential is limitless, and they are among the best learners in the nation. Thanks to CCSS, we now have the opportunity to prove it. For information on New Mexico’s Common Core Standards visit: Hanna Skandera is the secretary-designate of the New Mexico Public Education Department.


Common Core presents worthwhile challenges


e live in an increasingly global society. More than at any time in history, we literally have information from the entire world at our fingertips, and that information is increasing exponentially every day. As educators in the Santa Fe Public Schools, we must adjust both how and what we teach in order to help our students navigate and be successful in the world that awaits them. The Common Core State Standards were developed out of a partnership between the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers. They were developed due to concerns that our students were not performing at the level of their peers internationally, and that business leaders and higher education officials were reporting of graduates who were not prepared for careers or college. Taxpayers, appropriately, were demanding results. The new standards are internationally benchmarked, are aligned with college and work expectations, and increase rigor in the classroom. With the Common Core State Standards, for the first time, standards within and across schools, districts and states will be aligned. In our highly mobile society, this alignment to standards is critical. Parents and students deserve to know that the education a child receives in one public school will be at least comparable to that received in another public school, that the quality of that education will be high, and that students will graduate prepared for the world of work or higher education. Schools and districts still retain the freedom of how they achieve those standards and what instructional materials they use in the classroom, but the basic standard for the knowledge that students must be able to demonstrate will be consistent. The transition will be challenging in terms of teaching and learning, assessment and technology integration, just to name a few areas. The standards require new ways of teaching and learning. They require an increase in critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Students must be taught

to think, to reason and to create. In our information-rich society, students must learn to become rational consumers of knowledge, able to differentiate the meaningful from the inane. The Common Core State Standards attempt to provide that framework, but they are, as yet, untested. Anyone who claims they are the final Rhonda solution is fooling himself. What they Gardner provide is consistency and important shifts in teaching and learning, and Santa Fe Public Schools is working with its teachers to provide support in making these shifts. The assessments being designed to evaluate student achievement and teacher effectiveness present many unknowns as well, but what we do know about them gives us cause for both excitement and caution. There is no question that the new assessments will evaluate a whole new level of student thinking and will acknowledge the complexity of that thinking. Students will have to justify their answers like never before. There remain legitimate concerns about how a standardized test can adequately evaluate that level of complexity. Another area of challenge will be the technology requirements of the new assessments, which are taken entirely online. In Santa Fe, we have been working hard to improve our technology infrastructure and the availability of hardware, but limited funds continue to be a challenge in this area. The transition to the Common Core State Standards isn’t going to be easy. There have been and will continue to be significant challenges in implementation both of the standards and the accompanying assessments, but our students and our community deserve our best effort to provide the education for our students that will allow them to pursue the future of their choice. Rhonda Gardner is the director of teaching and learning at Santa Fe Public Schools.

ebate is getting more contentious than ever about how the Americas were populated by humans. Of course, the long-held belief is that humans crossed over from Asia across the Bering Strait during the last Ice Age. But evidence, including the Clovis Culture and other archeological findings, dispute this claim. Did all modern-day Native Americans come across the Bering Strait? Do Native American creation stories match up with scientific data? Were Native Americans somehow created separately from other humans? How did humans populate the Americas? Harlan When you think McKosato about how the Commentary Americas or Turtle Island became populated, where do you start? Do you start with scientific or conventional wisdom that says all humans originated from Africa? Or, do you prefer to start with your own tribal creation story? The reason I bring this up is because there is definitely contrast about how the Americas were populated, and very seldom in the scientific world, as well as the archeological world, are Native genesis stories taken into consideration. Do we have any evidence to back up these creation stories? Do tribal creation stories actually have some observational methods? Can we get out from under the scientific notion that creationism is mythical, or that it’s some kind of folk science? How do we reconcile the enormous gap between the scientific evidence of humankind’s progress that’s been presented to us so far, and our deep-held indigenous beliefs that we come from here? Have you ever heard the term “epistemology?” How do you know what you know? Are you convinced that all Native tribes came across the Bering Strait and that we’re actually descendants from Eurasia? The easy answer to this question is, of course, no. What is the alternative? Can you construct an argument that says, “We do originally come from this continent, and this is why I believe it?” Because without this fact-based argument do we have to concede, “You know what, we do have to give in to the evidence that says we do come from someplace besides Turtle Island?” If we didn’t come here across the Bering Strait, where did we come from and how did we get here? Also, we hear a lot about creation stories and Native creationism, but do these stories define exactly the true history of our migration, and if not, why not? Do you think the scientific data is false and misleading? There’s another question that evolves from this, and that is, “Were we created separately from other humans?” Because all the evidence says humans originated from Africa. As a tribal person, as an educated person, do you believe that? Could humankind have originated at different times across the time continuum? What about Adam and Eve, were they Africans? Or, is this simply a chapter within the “Greatest Story Ever Told” — the Holy Bible? The general scientific signs point out that humans evolved from East Africa and that during this 2 million or 3 million year evolution, humans moved out of Africa and moved into what is now Europe, Asia and ultimately down into Australia and then into the New World — North and South America. Humans eventually inhabited every continent and island (excluding Antarctica) until the 1950s, on the planet. So, when does science take the place of personal and religious beliefs? Is science simply a way of trying to explain nature and natural events in a way that is easily replicable so we can make hypothesis and form experiments to test those hypothesis so that we can try to understand the way nature works? Religious and personally held beliefs serve a different purpose. They help us understand our own personal ideas and space within nature. The answers we seek are two entirely different things. We can’t explain religion from a scientific perspective, and we really shouldn’t try to explain science from a religious perspective. They overlap in certain respects, but they serve different functions when trying to explain what it means to be human.

What’s next for gross-receipts taxes?


ocial issues such as abortion and same-sex marriage might raise blood pressure and grab headlines, but the 2014 Legislature is going to have other big fights. Chief among them will be taxes. Earlier this year, the Legislature came to a last-minute tax deal approved just as the session was ending (or just after in the House, but who was watching the clock?). The tax compromise of 2013 proved a model of bipartisanship, with something in it to make everyone at least a little unhappy, most of all the cities and counties of New Mexico. Since 2004, when the gross-receipts tax on food was repealed, the state of New Mexico has reimbursed municipalities for lost revenue. After last year’s deal, “hold harmless,” as the procedure was termed, is being discontinued. Starting in 2015 and phased in over 15 years, larger cities and counties no longer will be receiving revenue to make up for dollars lost to the exemption on food and some health items. The flow of money back to cities and counties is being stopped to pay for a corporate income tax that also was in the compromise. As state Sen. Gerald Ortiz y Pino, D-Albuquerque, put it at the time: “We’ve given corporations a big tax break, and we’re paying for it by raising the tax on the middle class. I just don’t think that’s a great way of doing it.” By the time the hold-harmless provision is gone, the city of Santa Fe for example, will be losing $10.5 million a year in gross-receipts tax revenues. Cities such as Albuquerque, Rio Rancho and Las Cruces — and larger counties — also will be hurting. (Cities under 10,000 and counties under 48,000 aren’t affected by the phase out). The legislation will allow affected cities and counties to raise taxes — the Las Cruces City Council already voted to raise its grossreceipts tax three-eighths of 1 percent, the amount allowed by law, only to have the state reject the increase. The city plans to file a legal challenge. Both Santa Fe and Santa Fe County still are considering options to make up lost revenues. Santa Fe’s gross-receipts tax already is 8.1875 percent, while Santa Fe County is at 6.6250 percent. Increases, which may be necessary, are going to be hard for taxpayers to accept. Yet citizens also will complain loudly if services are cut; look at the commotion when the city tried to trim library hours earlier this year. One group, the New Mexico League, wants to resurrect a food tax, saying that’s the best way to broaden the tax base and make up the lost revenue. The food tax, though, burdens families who are buying the necessities of life. We would not favor bringing it back. We don’t believe, though, that New Mexico’s largest cities and counties should be left begging. The gross-receipts tax, as it stands, is a clunky tax — unlike a straight sales tax, it taxes businesses, who then tax consumers of goods and services. It is designed to be a low, broad-based tax, but that has changed as exemptions have increased. Removal of the hold-harmless provision likely will prompt the larger cities to raise the gross-receipts tax to the point that it discourages spending — Santa Fe’s is close to 10 cents on the dollar as it is. Such a high grossreceipts tax is bad for tourists, locals and business travelers. This removal of the hold-harmless provision, coupled with the revenue needs of cities and counties, presents an opportunity for New Mexico. The phase out doesn’t even start until 2015, which should give lawmakers, policy experts and others an opportunity to reconsider how we raise taxes to fund state government. Is this the time to institute a simple sales tax? Could the corporate tax be made even flatter, but more broad-based? Are local and state governments too dependent on taxes that require over-consumption? In short, how can we fund our government without breaking the backs of working men and women? Starting in 2015, barring any modifications to the tax structure, breaks for corporations will be made up by tax increases at the local level — and that’s a situation that should not be allowed to stand.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Oct. 27, 1963: The opening day of deer hunting in Northern New Mexico ended at midnight last night with one hunter dead and four others wounded. The dead hunter apparently bled to death from a leg wound suffered when he was shot by another hunter northwest of El Vado Lake in North Central New Mexico. A 21-year-old Santa Fe man was shot Saturday afternoon while hunting in the Hyde Park area. He was removing rifles from the back of a station wagon when a 30-30 was accidentally discharged, striking him in the leg. A 13-year-old from Farmington accidentally shot himself in the foot. An 18-year-old from Carlsbad was shot in the lower part of the stomach. A 64-year-old man from Albuquerque was shot in the head. Oct. 27, 1988: About 700 non-union employees of St. Vincent Hospital will learn today if they still have jobs, one day after two vice presidents and as many as a dozen or more senior executives lost or left their jobs. The action is part of the long-rumored reduction-in-force at St. Vincent brought about by budgetary problems and ineffective collection practices, which have left more than $14 million in unpaid patient bills in only three years.


Save Congress! Pay more


ive Congress a pay raise! Oh. Have I got your attention now? (Apologies to Alec Baldwin in Glengarry Glen Ross.) This may be a case of the worst timing ever, but the question of whether Congress is underpaid actually is on the table right now. You can thank tin-eared representatives like Phil Gingrey, R-Ga., who complained at a party caucus that his staffers can hop to a lobbying job and make $500,000: “Meanwhile I’m stuck here making $172,000 a year.” (Actually, $174,000.) Still, it’s not unreasonable to ponder even now whether congressional salaries are so low they interfere with good, uncorrupt governing. That’s the view of the financial commentator Yves Smith, who argues: “If you pay cops terribly, you’ll get cops who take bribes. If you pay members of Congress or regulators way less than first-year law school graduates in large New York or D.C. law firms, you’re going to get members and regulators who take bribes.” That’s true in principle. But the question is whether $174,000 a year — and much more for committee chairmen and legislative leaders — is at the bribemongering level. That’s a hard argument to make, since it’s more than three times the median pay in the United States. Another argument is that a higher salary would draw better people into Congress. Also doubtful. It’s not likely that people run for the Senate or the House

because they see congressional pay as a pot of gold. The tea partiers who arrived in 2010 seemed generally to be motivated not by the $174,000 pay of a Washington lawmaker, but by ideology. Would there have been more or fewer tea party Republicans in the House if the salary were $100,000? Or $200,000? One real problem with Congress is that too many members seem utterly unfamiliar with the daily struggles of constituents who earn the median income of $50,000, not to mention those who live at the poverty line. It’s natural to come to believe that one’s own situation is the norm. And sure, there are members who struggle to make do at $174,000; congressional service comes with some unreimbursed expenses, including the necessity, for some, of maintaining two homes. Members get an allowance averaging about $1.4 million a year for office expenses, including travel, rent and staff (up to 18 permanent employees). In all fairness, it can be a chore to stretch that to cover all necessities. Let’s not forget that Congress is already a plutocrats’ club. Some 47 percent of its members are millionaires, and with last year’s election it got richer: The median net worth of the incoming class was $1.1 million. The median net worth in America is $66,000. The sheer insensitivity of some members of Congress to their fellow Americans is stunning; how can one explain the position of a congressman who thinks it’s no big deal to hack away at food stamps

while collecting millions of dollars in farm supports — I’m looking at you, Doug LaMalfa, R-Calif., — or one who proposes cutting cost-of-living increases for retirees on Social Security while pulling down $174,000? Can there be any doubt that this lack of empathy would only get worse if lawmakers got a big bump in pay? Would collecting $250,000 or $300,000 a year really make a congressman more sympathetic to the working person earning $20 or $30 an hour? It’s doubtful, but I’d bet he’d be more sensitive to the plight of a banker grousing about getting only a $200,000 bonus this year. One proposal that’s reasonable on the surface is to tie congressional salaries to inflation. As observed, if salaries were raised to the equivalent of what Congress earned in 1992, that would produce a $42,000 raise, bringing today’s pay to $214,000. Of course, Congress has been hostile to inflation increases for the federal minimum wage, which hasn’t been raised since 2009, and keeps talking about slicing the cost-of-living adjustment for seniors on Social Security. Why should Congress be exempt from the ravages of inflation if it subjects less privileged people to it? So what’s the answer? It’s easy. Congress gets paid plenty today, and that’s plenty enough.

Cost of warheads could limit nukes


ill the threat of a continued sequester yield rational changes to the U.S. nuclear weapons program? It won’t save much money in the short run, but it’s an opportunity to apply some logic to the Cold War thinking that hangs over these most destructive weapons. The fiscal 2014 continuing resolution, thanks to sequestration, cuts almost $1 billion from President Obama’s requested $7.9 billion for the weapons program of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), the Energy Department outfit that runs the nation’s nuclear weapons complex. If the $6.9 billion projected by the Congressional Budget Office for the NNSA weapons program is maintained for fiscal 2014, it “could soon accomplish what arms control activists have repeatedly failed to do, curbing the rapid growth of the U.S. nuclear weapons budget,” according to an analysis in the Albuquerque Journal. Budget cuts have already affected long-range Defense Department plans to replace the triad of strategic nuclear delivery systems. The next generation of Ohioclass strategic submarines has been cut by two — to 12 — and development work on the first one has been extended by two years. Research for a new strategic bomber and a new land-based intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) have slowed. Long term, it’s the replacement of the delivery systems that could cost more than $100 billion in future years. But the bombers can carry conventional weapons, the submarines can serve alternative functions and the ICBMs can be upgraded to last for over a decade more. It’s been one of the ironies of the Obama administration that in order to get enough GOP Senate support for the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START)

Editorial page editor: Inez Russell Gomez, 986-3053,, Twitter @inezrussell

with Russia in 2010, the president had to agree to increase over the next decade the money spent on the nuclear weapons complex. He also had to agree to replace the three types of delivery systems. Oddly, in contrast, while President George W. Bush sharply reduced the number of strategic nuclear weapons, he was never pressed to spend the large amounts needed to modernize the nuclear weapons complex, much of which dates to the Manhattan Project. So, over the past three years, Congress, with administration support, has kept increasing funds for the nuclear weapons program while other discretionary spending, including for defense, was being cut. Funds grew incrementally from $6.8 billion in fiscal 2010 to $7.56 billion in fiscal 2013. One problem: Increased costs of NNSA projects have eaten up what’s been appropriated. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) has for years put the NNSA on its “high-risk list” because of its poor planning, bad financial management, and waste and abuse in major construction contracts. For example, the aging plutonium facility at Los Alamos National Laboratory was set for replacement. In 2005, the NNSA approved the Chemistry and Metallurgy Research Replacement (CMRR) project at an estimated cost of $975 million. By 2010 the cost had “increased six-fold … to an estimated high of $5.8 billion,” the GAO said. Though the GOP forced Obama to fund CMRR plans as part of the New START deal, the administration deferred its construction for five years in order to pay for higher-priority projects such as the Uranium Processing Facility (UPF) at Oak Ridge, Tenn. A GAO report released in July said that since 2010 the “UPF had experienced significant cost increases. More recently, the

upper bound of the UPF’s cost range has increased from approximately $1.1 billion in 2004 to $6.5 billion.” So just what does the U.S. need? Forget going to zero. Nuclear weapons will not vanish, and therefore this country must maintain a complex of facilities to continue to monitor its stockpile and ensure the weapons that remain are secure and reliable. Numbers are set by treaties with Russia. By February 2018, each country is limited to 800 delivery systems — land-based or submarine-based ICBMs or strategic bombers — but only 700 can be deployed. The number of deployed strategic nuclear warheads will go down to 1,550, but there is no cap on nondeployed warheads. As of April 2013, according to State Department figures, Russia already was eight below the 500 limit in deployed delivery systems. The United States was over by 92. Both countries were 200 above in non-deployed systems. Russia also had 70 fewer deployed warheads than allowed by the 2010 treaty while the United States was above the 2018 limit by 104. The Cold War is over. Threats have changed, and new thinking is required. Two nuclear weapons ended World War II, killing or injuring upwards of 200,000 people. Today’s strategic warheads have much greater explosive power and play more of a foreign policy or domestic political role rather than an actual military one. Fewer would be better, and it is almost funny that it is their cost — which, comparatively, is minimal — rather than logic that ultimately may force a change in nuclear weapons policy. Walter Pincus writes for The Washington Post.

Lessons from Finland’s teachers


ll teachers in Finland are required to have a master’s degree. That statement was just one of many surprising facts that I read recently in the magazine The Week. The article was an excerpt from a book The Smartest Kids In The World, by Amanda Ripley. Ripley states, “To become a teacher in Finland, [one] had to first get accepted into one of only eight prestigious teacher-training universities. Today, Finland’s education programs are even more selective, on the order of MIT. Getting into a teachertraining program there was as prestigious as getting into medical school in the United States. … teachers were protected by powerful unions.” Ripley, a native of Oklahoma, went on to write, speaking of teachers in the United States, “to educate our children, we invited anyone — no matter how poorly educated they were — to give it a try. At most U.S. colleges, education was known as one of the easiest majors. Nationwide, less than half of American high school math teachers majored in math. Almost a third did not even minor in math. In Oklahoma alone, Bethel could choose from nearly two dozen teacher-training programs — almost three times as many as in all of Finland, a much bigger place.” I don’t have the answers, but I do know that, for most, our children are not being educated well enough to compete with students in many other countries. How do I know? I have worked with hundreds of kindergarten, first- and second-graders in an after-school reading program. I see firsthand how they struggle and how many are not evaluated by the public schools early on to discover their special needs. In this article on education in Finland, I regret that Ripley doesn’t offer any statistics on the level of success gained by superior training of teachers. Are they turning out students who are better educated? Of course, it certainly wouldn’t hurt to start treating teachers on the same level as doctors and CEOs, but there are other important factors such as size of classrooms and parent participation. And perhaps attitude is, after all, the most important element. In cultures where education is considered to be very important, we see a high level of highly educated people, such as in Japan. Too many parents seem to look at schools as places to park their children during the day so they can go to their minimum wage jobs. They consider teachers as baby sitters. This has not always been the way in this country. I graduated from college in 1953. When I went to school, there was great respect for teachers. Our parents knew that an education was the stepping stone to a better life. My generation was the first to send large numbers of children to college. It was just after World War II and a lot of young men went to college for free on the GI Bill. Good jobs for our parents were plentiful at the time and secure. And middle-class families could afford the college tuitions. Let’s hope that our government can soon begin to function as it should and bring back the opportunities for good jobs and help for students who want to go all the way with their educations. Elections are coming up, so I hope more people vote and more people take a good hard look at who is in government to help the middle class and who is in government to help the rich who are buying our elections.

New Mexico’s poor need a long-term fix N ew Mexico is a poor state, one of the poorest in the nation, with one out of every five New Mexicans living on an income below the poverty line. For a family of three — a single parent with two children — that’s just $18,500 a year. As a poor state, New Mexico has always struggled to address both social issues and economic development. Recently, we learned that we hit the bottom on a national ranking of child welfare at the same time an economist labeled our income growth as “pathetic.” It’s not hard to see how the two are connected. But while child welfare advocates are already on the campaign trail pushing for more state spending on early childhood programs and public schools, business leaders are equally engaged on a plan to fight for a business-friendly tax system and more jobtraining money. It’s critically important for both sides to recognize we cannot build a thriving economy without a healthy, educated workforce, and we cannot overcome the social issues that prevent us from having that workforce without a thriving economy.

And both sides need to recognize that it will take a multipronged approach to solve New Mexico’s systemic problem with poverty. Children who grow up in poverty are less Luciano likely to succeed in “Lucky” school, more likely to Varela get into trouble, less likely to find adequate employment, more likely to need social services, and more likely to raise their own children in poverty. Studies show a stressful environment, a direct result of poverty, creates long-term problems in infants, from compromised immune systems to heart disease. Investing in early nutrition, health and family wellness programs pays off with healthy children who become healthy adults. New Mexico has invested substantially in programs that attempt to overcome the impacts of poverty from birth. This year, we will spend a total of nearly $200 million on core programs for very young children, including home visits for families with newborns, child care subsidies, pre-

kindergarten, early special education, and early literacy and other public school supports. We will continue to focus our attention and our resources on the programs that have the biggest payoff — not just child care but high quality pre-kindergarten classes that help students overcome the poverty-driven achievement gap, not just home visits for all newborns but interventions for the families of infants most at risk from the impacts of poverty. Starting at the beginning of the cycle is essential, but we must also look at enhancing public school funding for those students and training programs that prepare New Mexicans for available jobs. I intend to introduce legislation next legislative session that will improve resources for teaching children at risk of failing. We provide school districts about $2.3 billion a year through the school funding formula, but only about $70 million is the result of the at-risk factor in the formula, just 3 percent. Poverty is the best predictor of low achievement, but we are substantially behind many states in spending on atrisk children and, based on some studies, substantially below what we should be spending to make a difference.


We must also focus on attracting high-wage jobs, providing training for the jobs that are out there and raising the minimum wage — now so low that even full-time employment cannot pull a poor family out of poverty. The Legislature has created a “jobs council” that will include policymakers and representatives from higher education and the national laboratories to develop strategies for attracting and building the most promising industries and educating a workforce to serve them. With judicious, targeted spending and a balanced approach, New Mexico could finally escape its own poverty cycle. And then we could have both a healthy economy and healthy communities.

Fall in line for your flu shot


ids are back in school, the stores are filled with Halloween decorations, and temperatures are beginning to dip. Fall has arrived in New Mexico, and that means it’s also the beginning of flu season. Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. The illness causes missed work and school days. In 2010, Americans missed 100 million workdays due to flu-related illness, resulting in more than $10 billion in costs to companies’ bottom lines. The best way to protect yourself and reduce your chances of getting the flu this year is to get a flu vaccine. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, everyone who is at least 6 months of age should get a flu vaccine. It is increasingly important to get vaccinated for people who have certain medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes or chronic lung disease, pregnant women, young children under 5 and people 65 and older. Despite the evidence and recommendations, hundreds of thousands of New Mexicans won’t get vaccinated this year. Not only does that put your own personal health and wellbeing at risk, but it increases the chances of your family, friends, co-workers and neighbors getting sick too. Consider the following: Getting the shot will not give you the flu. According to the CDC, the flu shot vaccine is made with either inactivated flu viruses (and therefore not infectious) or with no flu vaccine viruses at all. Many people report experiencing flu-like symptoms after getting the vaccine, such as muscle pain or weakness, but these symptoms go away after a day or two, and are much less severe than the actual flu. Young, healthy people get the flu, too. Influenza does not discriminate against age or healthy habits. Just because you’re young or don’t typically get sick doesn’t mean you can’t catch the flu. According to the CDC, people who have the flu can spread it to others

from as far as 6 feet away. You can also catch the flu from someone who has yet to exhibit any signs or symptoms of being sick. The flu shot is not

expensive. In most cases, the cost of a flu shot is covered by your health insurance plan, whether you buy health insurance on your own or are covered through your employer, through Medicare or Medicaid. More employers are now offering free, on-site flu shot clinics at the office. If you get the flu, the cost of treating it and the potential for missed days of work or school far exceed the cost of the vaccination. Getting the flu shot vaccine is fast, easy and convenient. Getting a flu shot takes no more than five minutes. Most neighborhood pharmacies even offer walk-in options, so you don’t need to make an appointment. If you are unemployed or your employer doesn’t offer flu shots, you can go to your primary care doctor or nearby wellness clinic, most retail pharmacies or contracted flu shot providers. To find a list of flu shot providers near you, visit www.cdc. gov/flu/about/qa/flushot.htm and enter your ZIP code. Make your and your family’s health a priority this year by getting a flu shot.

THE NEW MEXICAN Sunday, October 27, 2013


Preserving open space in best American tradition O ne of America’s best ideas has been the dedication of public lands for citizens to use — not only because of financially valuable resources but for their place in our collective history and traditions. Sportsmen (and women) have been among the staunchest fighters for continuing access and protection of these special places. That’s true, in part, because we have been able to experience firsthand, especially here in the West, hunting, fishing and other traditional outdoor pursuits over large areas of public lands. Before the government shutdown, three bills had been introduced before Congress to help ensure continuing protection and access for the public.

We hope that our delegation again may take up these matters of interest to New Mexicans. Sen. Martin Heinrich’s HUNT Act (S. 1554) seeks to improve legal access Karen to public property. By Denison dedicating 1.5 percent of the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund to purchasing easements and rights of way from willing landowners, this legislation would unlock a significant acreage of public lands that currently lack legal entrance except across private land. Providing public access benefits

those who visit but can also significantly benefit local economies. The Public Lands Renewable Energy Development Act (S. 279) would institute a royalty formula for renewable energy revenues generated on public lands. A share of revenues would go to the state, the county and (importantly for sportsmen) to a fund that would offset the impacts of renewable projects on habitat. Senate Bill 279 is common-sense legislation for New Mexico because of our plentiful public lands and our enormous potential as a utility-scale producer of clean energy. For this reason, Sens. Tom Udall and Heinrich and Reps. Steve Pearce, Ben Ray Luján and Michelle Lujan Grisham are all

cosponsors. This bill has bipartisan support, in other words. Heinrich and Udall have also introduced Senate Bill 285, a bill that would transfer management of the Valles Caldera National Preserve to the National Park Service. As a professional guide, I believe the NPS provides the best model for improving access for all the available recreational activities on the Valles Caldera (including continued fishing and hunting), while protecting those qualities that make this area a New Mexico gem. The preserve’s current model of science-based adaptive management would be retained. Cutting-edge research currently being conducted by the staff could continue while public

access would be improved, especially for citizens of modest means, to the significant benefit of the state and local economy. No other agency is demonstrating as well the ability to balance the issues of protection and access for traditional sportsmen that such a wonderful place deserves. We are fortunate here in New Mexico to be in close contact with the natural landscapes that help sustain and shape our souls, our traditions and even our wallets. Preserving a balance, which currently seems so difficult in Washington, D.C., is the business of all of us. Karen Denison is the owner of Outspire Hiking and Snowshoeing.


What to look for in a mayor for Santa Fe A


Defaulting on debt is not patriotic The shutdown of W the United States e were born in the years immediately after World War II. We grew up in the same small quintessential American village during the 1950s and 1960s, believing that the United States was the greatest country on Earth. By the mid1960s, the war in Vietnam threatened that belief. One of us was arrested protesting the war at the Pentagon, while the other fought with the 5th Special Forces in the Mekong Delta in 1970 and was awarded two Purple Richard Goldstein Hearts and the Bronze Star for heroism three times. Despite our differences back then, we still believe that our country is the greatest on Earth. This core belief stems not simply from economic strength and military might, but also from our country’s comDavid mitment to freedom Shapiro and the stability of our democracy. The ingenious system of checks and balances that was devised by our Founding Fathers has been successful for well over 200 years. But since Oct. 1, our government was shut down by one small faction in the House of Representatives. Its members acted like the spoiled brat who, when he doesn’t get his way, takes his ball home.

The tea party members of Congress, many of whom ironically refer to themselves as tea party patriots, successfully undermined and weakened the United States of America by their actions. In so doing, they are accomplishing the goals of al-Qaida, Hezbollah and like-minded organizations more effectively than those organizations could ever hope to do. The shutdown of the United States government imposed costs on everyday Americans who must pay their mortgage or rent, put food on the table and buy medicine. All of this, because the House Republican caucus has raised blackmail to a new level. The shutdown was bad, but the prospect of continued Republican intransigence regarding the debt ceiling is truly frightening. A deal has been reached for now, but in 2014, if House Republicans cause the United States government to default on its financial obligations, the costs will be extremely harsh. The chaos in financial markets and the downward worldwide economic spiral that would emerge if the United States defaults on its debt obligations will, in the vernacular, put a big hurt not only on the economy of the United States but also on the worldwide economy. U.S. government debt has historically been treated as a risk-free asset. Should America default on its debt that will no longer be the case. All this is taking place because the House Republican caucus chose (and could again) conveniently to ignore the Constitution’s 14th Amendment (“the validity of the public debt of the United

government imposed costs on everyday Americans who must pay their mortgage or rent, put food on the table and buy medicine. All of this, because the House Republican caucus has raised blackmail to a new level.

States … shall not be questioned”). So let’s be clear. The prospect of default on the government’s debt is an outcome that would weaken the United States severely; it is not a patriotic act. Let’s hope the tea party caucus realizes this in 2014. Richard Goldstein is a retired Florida trial lawyer who now lives in Santa Fe.

Entitlement spending is the problem


s a lifelong Republican with a financial background, it is easy for me to see the perilous path our country has taken. It’s also easy for me to be blinded by visions of how cuts in discretionary spending would help put our country back on the right path. However, contrary to popular belief, it’s not quite that easy. The current government shutdown cost our country $50 billion a month, or about half that once it ended. Federal workers missed paychecks, as are contractors, small businesses and the travel industry. Our local and state governments suffered as well because of lost tax receipts and unemployment claims. Although it is true our national debt is high, and our expenditures exceed our revenues, it is also true the the Budget Control

Act of 2011 (also known as sequestration), has resulted in the lowest two years of discretionary spending since the Korean War. However, cutting discretionary spend will not fix our country’s problems. As pointed out by Rep. Paul Ryan, in a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed piece, the fundamental problem has to do with our country’s entitlement spending. The problem is that in Social Security and Medicare expenditures are set to explode, making a critical problem even worse. Ryan points out that the way out of this potential economic disaster is to make minor fundamental changes to our country’s entitlement programs. Options like requiring better off individuals to pay more for Medicare, and potential reductions in the cost of living indexes on Social Security.

Unfortunately, the dysfunctional tactics used by Congress have done nothing but exasperate the problems. The shutdown has caused irreparable damage to our nation’s economy and major disruptions to government operations and potentially put our national security at risk. Yes. We do need to manage our discretionary funds wisely and perhaps re-evaluate how our federal government manages its budget. But, unless we address the big ticket items such as Social Security and Medicare, our country will continue to experience rising debt and deficits and head down the path of economic catastrophe.

s the campaign for mayor picks up steam, now seems like as good a time as any to talk about what Santa Feans should look for in a new mayor. First of all, we need to take this upcoming election seriously. Some people say that because Santa Fe has a “weak mayor” form of government, the mayor’s role is not that important, that the mayor is just a Karen figurehead. Heldmeyer Don’t believe it! Even under our current charter, the mayor has a lot of power. Some of these powers are listed in the charter; others are more informal but still very important. It does make a difference who the mayor is. So, what should you look for in mayor? First, your candidate should reflect your political and philosophical views and the practical priorities you want to see implemented at City Hall. So, listen to what all the candidates have to say and gather information from a variety of sources, particularly those that are independent of the campaigns. But realize that in these days of polls and paid political consultants, many candidates will know what the popular view is and publicly espouse that view, so words alone aren’t enough. What are the candidates’ track records, what have they done (not said) about important issues in the past? (And if they don’t have a track record, why not?). Look at their entire history, no matter how far back it goes, because when people are contemplating a run for office, both their words and their deeds often change. And track record doesn’t just include how candidates voted. How do they get along with others? Do they treat everyone with the dignity and respect they deserve? Are they able to form coali-

tions on important issues, but are they also able to take an independent stand on those issues when necessary? Are they open and transparent about the business of governing? Do they really listen at public hearings or are their decisions made earlier, behind closed doors? Are they accessible to their constituents and to the press? Do they attend the kinds of local functions where they can hear people discuss city issues, year in and year out, not just because they’re required to and not just when it’s election time and they need the publicity? Who are the people behind the candidates, and what do they expect to get if their candidate is elected? To a certain extent, you can find this out by looking at who signs petitions and donates money, even if a candidate is publicly-funded, but look for other tell-tale signs as well. And if candidates say that they are publicly funded, are they really? In Santa Fe, as in national elections, PACs (called “political committees” here) can be formed to support or oppose a candidate if they remain “independent” of candidates’ campaigns. But just as in national elections, that independence may be a ruse. If a lot of money is being spent on a candidate, where is it coming from, and why? Finally, try to find out why your candidate is running. Is it to advance a particular agenda, to advance a political career, or out of a sense of personal entitlement? Or does your candidate genuinely think he or she can make the city better by being mayor? If it’s the latter, are they able to spell out what they will do to make this happen, not just in sound bites or a “three-point platform,” but in enough substantive detail that you have real confidence in them? If every voter does this kind of homework, Santa Feans will surely have a good mayor for the next four years.

District calls for more AD options By James Barron The New Mexican

St. Louis Cardinals’ Allen Craig reacts after hitting a double during the ninth inning of Game 3 Saturday.

So about that 30-day window for a new hire … Santa Fe Public Schools is taking a more deliberate approach in selecting a new district athletic director, and it is not known when a hire will be made. Almudena Abeyta, the district chief academic officer, said the search committee is still in the interview phase, even though it has met with a candidate for the position that opened up in September when Kim Loomis resigned.



Obstruction call gives Cards win By Ronald Blum

ST. LOUIS — Third baseman Will Middlebrooks tripped Allen Craig for a game-ending obstruction call on Jon Jay’s ninth-inning grounder, giving the St. Louis CarCardinals 5 dinals a bizarre Red Sox 4 5-4 win over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night and a 2-1 World Series lead. Boston had tied the score with two runs in the eighth, and Yadier Molina singled with one out in the ninth off loser Brandon Workman. Craig pinch hit and lined Koji Uehara’s first pitch down the left-field line for a double that put runners on second and third. With the infield in, Jay hit a grounder to diving second baseman Dustin Pedroia. He threw home to catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who tagged out the sliding Molina. Saltalamacchia threw offline past third, and Middlebrooks, with his stomach on the field, raised both legs and tripped Craig. “I’m in shock right now,” Molina said. “Wow, it’s unbelievable.”

Coursey said on Saturday that he had a face-toface meeting with the committee on Oct. 15 and felt the process went very well. However, he received an email from Traci Oliver, the district’s executive director of human resources, inform-

Third base umpire Jim Joyce immediately signaled obstruction, and even though a sliding Craig was tagged by Saltalamacchia at the plate following the throw by left fielder Daniel Nava, plate umpire Dana DeMuth signaled safe and then pointed to third, making clear the obstruction had been called. “It’s part of the game,” Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday said. “The guy was in his way. … We’ll take it.” The Red Sox scored twice in the eighth inning to tie it 4-all. Jacoby Ellsbury led off with a single, and Shane Victorino was hit by a pitch for the sixth time this postseason. Both runners moved up on Pedroia’s groundout, and David Ortiz was intentionally walked. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny went to hard-throwing closer Trevor Rosenthal with the bases loaded, hoping for a five-out save from a rookie who has looked

Fourteen years later, it’s time for farewell


While 12 applicants emerged, Abeyta wants a larger pool for the committee to inspect. Joel Boyd, the district superintendent, expressed that he would like a hire within a month of Almudena Loomis’ departure on Abeyta Sept. 5. “After thinking a lot about it, we felt like it was too narrow a pool to choose from,” Abeyta said. “The position has been open, and since we’ve gotten a few more applications, we’ll go

that, by all accounts, seemed like the ideal candidate to deliver a damaging blow to the undefeated defending state champions. Silver quarterback Derek Salas was dropped four times by St. Michael’s defensive end Isaiah Dominguez, 2½ times by tackle Luke Sanchez and 1½ by end Nathanyal Leyba. A big, physical quarterback who led the Colts to the state title game last year, Salas and his offensive line were no match for the speed of the Horsemen front line. “[Salas] is fast, and fast quarterbacks are hard to keep up with for all the big defensive linemen,” Dominguez said. “Takes a lot of conditioning to keep up.”

“When you have the speed we have on our defensive line, you can expect to see games like this where passing quarterbacks are going have trouble,” added St. Michael’s head coach Joey Fernandez. “Three of those guys — Isaiah, Nathanyal and Luke — were on my 4-by-1 relay team [in track and field] at state. They’re all pretty fast.” The “21” represents the ongoing winning streak for the Horsemen (8-0), one shy of the school record set between 1936-38 and the state’s second-longest active streak behind Santa Rosa’s 29 straight.

Sunday, October 27, 2013 THE NEW MEXICAN

Silver: Colts challenged St. Mike’s last season Continued from Page C-1 They made it look easy during parts of the game at the Christian Brothers Athletic Complex, forcing a three-andout on Silver’s first two possessions and intercepting a Salas pass on the third en route to an early 13-0 lead. Even after the Colts responded with a 30-yard touchdown pass from Salas to Hector Vigil early in the second quarter, the Horsemen responded with an 80-yard scoring drive, a forced fumble on one of Dominguez’s sacks, and another touchdown to take a 28-7 lead into halftime. The “33” represents Silver’s total rushing yards — as in minus 33 yards on 21 attempts. Aside from runs of 26 and 16 yards by Colts receiver D.J. Bleich, the team’s longest run of the entire game went for four yards. Salas had minus-77 by himself thanks to all his sacks. “I’m not sure if it’s ever easy for us, but you look at all the

guys on the line and you realize these are the guys that have been our scout team facing the best players we’ve had the last few years,” Sanchez said. “Everyone who’s new has been practicing against the best for a while. They’re ready for this.” Every one of Sanchez’s big hits — and there were at least half a dozen in Saturday’s game — drew a chorus of “Luuuuke” calls from the fans. The 190pound senior claimed he doesn’t pay much attention to the crowd, but he couldn’t help but hear his name. “They seemed to get louder every time they did it, so that was good,” he said. “I definitely heard it.” Undefeated and virtually untested against AAA competition for most of the past twoplus seasons, the Horsemen did expect a challenge from Silver on Saturday. The Colts pushed them to the limit twice last season. “This was probably one of the best first halves we’ve

played this year,” Fernandez said. “I kind of got a little careless with some of the play calls in the second half, but that’s my fault. We had a lead.” Calls like a double-reverse flea flicker that fell incomplete and a gimmick toss to Dominguez in which he was supposed to drop back and throw, presumably to Daniel Ortega. Instead he scrambled backward, lost 15 yards and was called for throwing a pass to an ineligible receiver (Sanchez) as he threw the ball over his head while going down. “My first catch of the year,” Sanchez joked. “Too bad it didn’t count.” Combined with a holding penalty on first down, it contributed to a rare second-and-52 situation that the Horsemen shockingly converted into a touchdown three plays later when Ortega scored on a 25-yard run. Ortega had three touchdowns on the day while Dominguez had two. Ortega had 138 yards

rushing on 21 carries, was 1-for-3 passing with a touchdown and an interception, and had three catches for 128 yards. His 27 touchdowns are just four short of the single-season school record of 31 set last year by Salomon Martinez. Leyba had 75 yards rushing on just eight carries while quarterback Keith Dominguez passed for 249 yards and a score, connecting on 11 of 19 throws. All told, St. Michael’s outgained Silver 478-185 in total yardage. Salas passed for 218 yards but was picked off twice, hitting on 14 of 25 attempts. It’s a lot of numbers to take in, but the one thing the entire state can agree on is this: St. Michael’s is the undisputed top-ranked team in AAA heading into the home stretch of the 2013 regular season. One might be the loneliest number, but it’s the only one that the Horsemen truly care about.

Right now, there was no comparing or contrasting.” Abeyta said a contingency plan being considered is using an out-of-season coach to act in an interim role at each school. “I still have to work that out,” Abeyta said. “I need to talk to [SFPS Superintendent Joel] Boyd and discuss the best

interim plan.” Currently, Capital head football coach Bill Moon owns the interim AD tag, but Moon said he gets help from Capital assistant principal Mike Lovato with the day-today duties of the position while he coaches. Moon said he has not been informed of the school district’s plans, but reiterated that he would rather tend to his coaching duties. “What is it they said in World War II?” Moon said. “I’m holding the ground until relieved.”

Española Valley steals 2AAAA crown from Los Alamos The New Mexican

For the first time in six years, the Los Alamos Lady Hilltoppers are not the District 2AAAA volleyball champions. Española Valley swept the Lady Hilltoppers 25-22, 25-19, 25-22 on Saturday to steal the crown while still remaining unbeaten in district play. Elana Salazar had a big night for Española (13-6 overall, 7-0 2AAAA) with 14 kills, 10 digs, two blocks and two aces. Most of those points had to come off of Los Alamos’ blocks, who did not did not make things easy at the net. “Los Alamos is a really good blocking team,” said Española head coach Damon Salazar. “We knew that coming into the match, but we created a lot of offense off those blocks.” SANTA FE PREPARATORy 3, MORA 0 These words hadn’t been spoken by a Blue Griffin in 16 years. They were after Prep bested the 2AA host Rangerettes 25-12, 25-16, 25-17 in

Sen. Joseph Montoya Gymnasium: District champion. Even with that goal accomplished, Prep (16-3, 7-0) still has a few more items to cross off its list. “I told the girls it was a great victory for our team,” said Kiran Bhakta, Blue Griffins head coach. “But we’re not done yet. Let’s get that undefeated district record that we have worked so hard for.” Desiray Anderson had 13 kills and a block to lead the Blue Griffins, while Joy Maran added seven kills and four aces. PECOS 3, MONTE dEL SOL 2 The Lady Dragons jumped out to a 2-1 lead over the Lady Panthers, but they could not win a third game as they fell 25-18, 17-25, 20-25, 25-16, 15-12 in a 2AA match. “We thought we could have beaten them,” Monte del Sol head coach Alfredo Lujan said. “But we’re happy that we played them close.” Erin Brooke led the Lady Dragons’ (5-10, 3-4) offense with 22 kills. On the

other side of the court, Pecos’ (6-13, 4-3) had Brooke Gallegos with 12 kills and 15 service points, but it took a while for the Lady Panthers to come alive. “Our girls responded after being down 2-1,” Pecos head coach Leonard Velasquez said. “We fell asleep and then they went and got them.” BERNALILLO 3, CAPITAL 0 The passing and defense are where Lady Jaguars head coach Michelle Armijo wants it. All they lack are the kills. It was apparent as the Lady Spartans won 25-20, 25-17, 25-15 in a 2AAAA at Bernalillo. Jamie Page had six kills and 14 digs for Capital (1-16, 0-6), but no one else could make a dent against Bernalillo’s defense. “Putting the ball away is what we work on in practices,” Armijo said. “We had over 60 attempts at hitting the ball and Jamie was the one who came through the most.”

MOUNTAINAIR 3, dESERT ACAdEMy 0 The Lady Wildcats (12-7, 7-4) let a 24-22 Game 1 lead slip away and Mountainair went on to a 26-24, 25-22, 25-11 2A win in Fort Marcy Complex. “I’d say 50 percent of the match was lost in the first game, and 40 percent in the second,” said Natalie Passalacqua, Lady Wildcats head coach. “We couldn’t put them away and that would have the difference.” Tori Heath had six kills, 15 digs and three aces for Desert Academy, while Diamar Beltran-Taylor had a team-high nine kills. GIRLS SOCCER SANTA FE HIGH 2, CAPITAL 0 The visiting Demonettes (13-7, 4-2) picked up a win in the final match of the season over 2AAAA rival Capital at Jaguar Field. Carley Cook scored a goal in the 38th minute, while Ursula Vold added another in the 58th minute.

Santa Fe High took second place in the district, but head coach Keith Richards feels optimistic about extending the season. “I feel good about getting in the state tournament,” he said. “I think we should get an 11- or 12-seed.” The Lady Jaguars (8-9, 2-4) finished in third place and an at-large bid to the state tournament is unlikely. FOOTBALL SANTA FE INdIAN SCHOOL 36, CROWNPOINT 28 Homecomings blues went away for the Braves (3-6) as they scored 24 unanswered points in the last 6 minutes to overcome a 28-12 deficit at the newly coronated Thomas Atencio Field. Kuein Quintana scored on a 3-yard touchdown run to trim the margin to 28-20, then Christian Velarde threw a 10-yard TD to Jarron Naranjo that tied it with the 2-point conversion. Velarde capped the rally with a 55-yard interception return for a touchdown.

No. 20 S. Carolina rallies past No. 5 Mizzou in OT By Jake Kreinberg The Associated Press

COLUMBIA, Mo. — With a 17-0 lead entering the fourth quarter, No. 5 Missouri found itself 15 minutes away from having the opportunity to clinch the Southeastern Conference East Division with a win at home next Gamecocks 27 week against Tennessee. Tigers 24 The only problem was that the Tigers had to face South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw, who entered Saturday night’s game in the third quarter and converted 20 consecutive passes in the teams’ matchup last year. After pitching a shutout in the first half, Missouri yielded five consecutive Gamecocks scoring drives to end the game and lose 27-24 in two overtimes. Maty Mauk threw for 249 yards and a touchdown in his second career start, while Marcus Murphy added two scores on the ground.

But Andrew Baggett’s 24-yard field goal attempt clanked off the left goal post, leaving the team in a vulnerable position as it finishes its schedule with four conference games. The Tigers’ lead is down to one game in the division, and should South Carolina win at home against Mississippi State and Florida, Missouri (7-1, 3-1 SEC) would have to win out to clinch a trip to Atlanta on Dec. 7. Coach Gary Pinkel avoided blaming Baggett for the loss, saying there were many plays that led to the outcome. “This just gives us something to be hungry for,” left tackle Justin Britt said. “Our goals aren’t done. Shaw asked to be put into the game after Dylan Thompson couldn’t get the Gamecocks (6-2, 4-2) into the end zone in the first half. He then threw for 201 yards and three touchdowns, including one in the first overtime with a 15-yard pass on fourth down to Bruce Ellington to match Murphy’s 1-yard scamper.

“Dylan played awfully well most of the time he’s played,” coach Steve Spurrier said. “It was do or die. We had no chance in the division if we didn’t win this one.” Shaw engineered fourth-quarter scoring drives of 65, 69 and 63 yards, and the Gamecocks knotted the score at 17 on a two-yard reception by Nick Jones with 42 seconds remaining. Ellington scored his first touchdown on a 6-yard catch with 12:13 remaining, and Elliott Fry added a 20-yard field goal with 5:03 left. Thompson started his third career game for the Gamecocks, throwing for 222 yards. The Gamecocks outgained Missouri 498-404, but couldn’t convert until Shaw entered.Mike Davis caught three screen passes on South Carolina’s final scoring drive in regulation, partly making up for two fumbles in the first half. The Gamecocks turned the ball over three consecutive times in the second quarter, helping Missouri take a 14-0 halftime lead.


NMSU sees first win of season The Associated Press

LAS CRUCES — New Mexico State linebacker Trashaun Nixon tackled Abilene Christian wide receiver Taylor Gabriel at the 6 yard line to preserve the Aggies first win of the seaAggies 34 son, 34-29. Wildcats 29 New Mexico State (1-7) trailed the FCS Wildcats at halftime, 22-21. The Aggies took the lead in the fourth quarter on a pair of field goals from Maxwell Johnson and a 5-yard touchdown run by Germi Morrison to make it 34-22 with 2:32 left. But Abilene Christian (5-4) rallied. John David Baker found Charcandrick West with a 5-yard touchdown pass with 19 second left and the Wildcats recovered an on-side kick. After a 15-yard personal foul penalty on the kick-off and a 10-yard holding penalty, Abilene Christian had the ball at its own 21. On the final play Baker found Monte Green-Avery with a 59-yard pass, and a lateral to Gabriel collected another 14 yards before Nixon’s tackle ended the threat. UNLV 27, NeVada 22 In Reno, Nev., Caleb Herring passed for 335 yards and three touchdowns, and UNLV

defeated upstate rival Nevada. Tim Cornett rushed for 122 yards and a touchdown, and Devante Davis had eight catches for 121 yards for the Rebels (5-3 overall, 3-1 Mountain West Conference). Herring completed 29 of 42 passes and his 11-yard strike to Davis with 5:54 left in the game put the Rebels up 27-16. Cody Fajardo passed for 357 yards and two touchdowns (3-5 overall, 2-3 MWC). His 11-yard touchdown pass to Aaron Bradley pulled Nevada to within 27-22 with 3:25 to play. Nevada forced UNLV to punt, but the Wolf Pack could not convert a fourth-and-4 play with 1:28 left, and UNLV ran out the clock. The victory gave the Rebels possession of the Fremont Cannon - the most expensive trophy in college football - for the first time since 2004. SaN JoSe State 51, WyomiNg 44 In San Jose, Calif., David Fales passed for 482 yards and five touchdowns and scored his first rushing touchdown of the season with eight seconds left to lead San Jose State over Wyoming 51-44 in a Mountain West Conference affair Saturday night. The Spartans (4-3, 3-1) overcame a 16-point third quarter deficit, using three consecutive touchdowns to take the lead at the end of the frame.

NMHU falls to Chadron State The New Mexican

A season of disappointment continued for the New Mexico Highlands University football team. After rallying from deficits of 17-0 and 24-14, the Cowboys gave up a 58-yard touchdown run to Glen Clinton that allowed Chadron State to escape with a 31-24 win in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference play on Saturday. The loss dropped NMHU, which was picked to finish third in the RMAC, to 2-6 overall and 1-5 in the conference. Even though Highlands outgained Chadron State 466 yards to 342 on offense, it accumulated 283 of them on its four scoring drives. The other nine drives managed just 185, and the Cowboys had four drives that went threeand-out. Chadron State (6-2, 5-1) scored on its first three drives to build a 17-point lead before Highlands quarterback Emmanuel Lewis got on track. He threw two touchdown passes before the end of the half, including a 20-yard score to Alex Gaines with 7 seconds left

before half time that cut the margin to 17-14. The Eagles upped the margin to 24-14 on John McLain’s 10-yard touchdown pass to Cody Roes just 4:26 into the second half, but the Cowboys came back again. Highlands capped an 11-play, 78-yard drive with a Dominique Ferrell 2-yard TD run for 24-21, then took its next drive all the way to the Chadron State 4-yard line before Zach Tapia booted a 24-yard field goal to tie it a 24 with 10:27 left in the game. After holding Chadron State to three straight punts, the Cowboys defense gave up a big play in the waning moments when Clinton ripped off his game-winning run with 4:40 to go. NMHU’s last two drives pushed into Eagles territory, but only as far as the Chadron State 37. Ferrell had a game-high 168 yards on 29 carries, while Lewis completed 22 of 38 passes for 227 yards and two touchdowns. Highlands returns to Las Vegas, N.M., next week for an RMAC showdown with Black Hills (S.D.) State at Perkins Stadium. Game time is scheduled for 1 p.m.

EUGENE, Ore. — Byron Marshall ran for 133 yards and three touchdowns and Oregon wore down UCLA’s stout defense. Ducks 42 Marcus Mariota threw for Bruins 14 230 yards and a score and De’Anthony Thomas returned from a three game absence to run in another for the Ducks (8-0, 5-0 Pac-12). The Bruins (5-2, 2-2) went into halftime with the score knotted at 14 but were shutout by the Ducks in the second half. Brett Hundley completed 13 of 19 passes for 64 yards and a touchdown but also threw two interceptions, including one early in the fourth quarter that led to an Oregon touchdown. He also ran for 64 yards and a score. No. 1 aLaBama 45, teNNeSSee 10 In Tuscaloosa, Ala., T.J. Yeldon scored on three 1-yard runs and AJ McCarron passed for 275 yards and two touchdowns to help Alabama continue to roll. Landon Collins returned an interception 89 yards for another score for the Crimson Tide (8-0, 5-0 Southeastern Conference), which raced to a 35-0 halftime lead. Alabama has outscored its last six opponents 246-26. No. 3 FLoRida State 49, N.C. State 17 In Tallahassee, Fl., Jameis Winston threw for 292 yards and three touchdowns and Florida State scored 35 points in the first quarter.

Rashad Greene topped 100 yards receiving for the third consecutive game with eight receptions for 137 yards and a touchdown for the Seminoles (7-0, 5-0). No. 4 oHio State 63, PeNN State 14 In Columbus, Ohio, Braxton Miller passed for three touchdowns and ran for two and Carlos Hyde rushed for 147 yards and two more scores to lead Ohio State. It was the most points surrendered by Penn State (4-3, 1-2 Big Ten), and its worst beating in 114 years. Nittany Lions freshman QB Christian Hackenberg bobbled the second snap of the night and it never got much better. He ended up throwing two interceptions. No. 6 BayLoR 59, KaNSaS 14 In Lawrence, Kan., Bryce Petty threw for 430 yards and three touchdowns in fewer than three quarters, Lache Seastrunk ran for 109 yards and a score and Baylor won its school-record 11th straight. The Bears (7-0, 4-0 Big 12) piled up 500 yards of offense in taking a 38-0 lead by halftime, and then relaxed as coach Art Briles pulled many of his starters in the third quarter. No. 7 miami 24, WaKe FoReSt 21 In Miami Gardens, Fla., Duke Johnson ran for two fourth-quarter touchdowns, the second a 1-yard plunge with 53 seconds left, as No. 7 Miami rallied twice to beat Wake Forest. Johnson finished with 168 yards on 30 carries for the Hurricanes (7-0, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). Tanner Price’s 44-yard touchdown pass to Dominique Gibson with 4:02 remaining put Wake Forest on top, but the Hurricanes went 73 yards on their next 10 plays, with Johnson scoring to keep Miami unbeaten heading into next week’s showdown at No. 3 Florida State. No. 9 CLemSoN 40, maRyLaNd 27 In College Park, Md., Tajh Boyd threw for a touchdown and ran for a score, Sammy Watkins had a school-record 14 catches for 163 yards and Clemson wore down injury-riddled Maryland.

No. 11 aUBURN 45, FaU 10 In Auburn, Ala., Jeremy Johnson threw two long touchdown passes to Sammie Coates after replacing injured starter Nick Marshall and Auburn overwhelmed Florida Atlantic. Johnson, a freshman, threw a 36-yard scoring pass to Coates on his first snap after replacing Marshall, who was taken to the locker room with a shoulder injury early in the second quarter.

Marshall returned to the Auburn sideline, but not the game, as Johnson threw a 67-yard touchdown pass to Coates later in the quarter. Auburn (7-1) avoided a letdown one week after a 45-41 win over then-No. 7 Texas A&M. The Tigers had 628 total yards, including 440 in a lopsided first half. Florida Atlantic (2-6) trailed 38-0 before quarterback Jaquez Johnson scored on a 29-yard run with less than 1 minute remaining in the first half. No. 13 LSU 48, FURmaN 16 In Baton Rouge, La., — Odell Beckham Jr. caught six passes for 204 yards and two scores, Terrance Magee added two second-half touchdowns, and No. 13 LSU turned a tenuous halftime lead into a romp. Jeremy Hill rushed for 143 yards and two touchdowns for LSU (7-2), which led 20-16 at halftime before outscoring the Paladins (3-5) 28-0 in the second half. Hill’s first touchdown went for 55 yards. Beckham’s TDs went for 63 and 37 yards, and Magee broke off a 39-yard run for his second score. No. 14 teXaS a&m 56, VaNdeRBiLt 24 In College Station, Tex., Johnny Manziel threw for 305 yards and four touchdowns in less than three quarters, and Texas A&M bounced back from a loss last week. Manziel showed no signs that the right shoulder he injured last week was bothering him. He threw three TDs in the first quarter to help A&M (6-2, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) build a 28-point lead. He tacked on another score before sitting down with 6 minutes left in the third quarter and the Aggies leading 42-17. dUKe 13, No. 16 ViRgiNia teCH 10 In Blacksburg, Va., Anthony Boone ran for a touchdown, Ross Martin kicked two long field goals and Duke ended a long history of losing to ranked teams. The Blue Devils (6-2, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat a ranked team for the first time since they stopped No. 13 Virginia in 1994, and beat one on the road for the first time since Stanford in 1971. And they did it without a third-down conversion all game, and a 2-to-1 time of possession deficit. Virginia Tech (6-2, 3-1) had its six-game winning streak end as Logan Thomas threw four interceptions, the last on a deflected pass in the closing minutes that allowed Duke to finally run out the clock. The Hokies held the ball for 39:27 and outgained Duke 387-198, but still lost. No. 18 LoUiSViLLe 34, USF 3 In Tampa, Fla., Teddy Bridgewater threw for 344 yards and three touchdowns and Louisville rebounded from its first loss of the season. Charles Gaines returned a fourth-quarter interception 70 yards for a TD as the Cardinals’ defense reverted to the form that helped Louisville (7-1, 3-1 American Athletic Conference) climb into the top 10 before blowing a 21-point, secondhalf lead at home during a 38-35 loss to Central Florida. No. 19 oKLaHoma State 58, ioWa State 27 In Ames, Iowa, Desmond Roland ran for a career-high 219 yards and four touchdowns and Oklahoma State won its third straight.

No. 21 UCF 62, CoNNeCtiCUt 17 In Orlando, Fla., Blake Bortles threw for four touchdowns and ran for another as No. 21 UCF routed winless Connecticut. Bortles completed his first eight passes of the game and ended his day early in the third quarter, connecting on 20 of 24 for 286 yards. The junior ran for a TD as the Knights (6-1, 3-0 American Athletic Conference) scored on their first nine possessions of the game. They remain the favorite to claim the league’s BCS berth. No. 23 NoRtHeRN iLLiNoiS 59, eaSteRN miCHigaN 20 In De Kalb, Ill., Jordan Lynch threw four touchdown passes and caught another as Northern Illinois reached its best start as a major college football program.

Miami still out front By Tim Reynolds

The Associated Press

Boston stars Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett moved to Brooklyn, Derrick Rose recovered from his knee injury, Indiana gave Paul George a contract he richly deserved, and a slew of teams think they’re finally ready to contend for playoff spots. No question, the East is loaded with talent. And it’s all going to be chasing Miami once again. Including playoffs, the Heat won 78 percent of their games against Eastern Conference opponents last season — the third-best winning percentage any NBA team posted against its own half of the league in the past 16 years. The Heat won 39 of their final 45 matchups with East foes on the way to capturing the conference title for the third straight year. Those numbers show that the Heat dominated the East last year That being said, they were one defeat away from being eliminated by Indiana in the conference finals. The Heat outscored East clubs by 562 points with Lebron James on the floor last season. How dominant is that? Dwyane Wade was No. 2 on that plus-minus list, 192 points behind the league’s four-time MVP. James scored 1,653 points against East teams last season, one point less than New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony managed against the conference’s teams. Anthony took 244 more shots, though. Here’s five things to watch from the Eastern Conference in 2013-14: Heat check: All eyes will be on Miami, again. The Heat wouldn’t have it any other way. Losing Mike Miller through amnesty was a blow, though it was one everyone involved with the team understood was necessary given the financial realities in this luxury-tax world. But there’s still oodles of depth, and if Greg Oden continues his long — really long — recovery from knee problems, this might be Miami’s best team yet. New York, Old York: The Knicks have to be feeling somewhat slighted by suggestions that their window as a contender has closed. Then again, they very easily might not be the best team in their own city. Brooklyn is just loaded, with Pierce and Garnett being added to a mix that already included Deron Williams, Joe Johnson and Brook Lopez. Pierce and Garnett are clearly into the final chapters of their careers — but if healthy, believe that no one will want to see them coming in the first round. Central battles: Indiana and Chicago could very easily wage one of the best divisional races in the NBA this season. Of course, divisional titles don’t really mean a thing anymore, but the back and forth between the Pacers and Bulls — especially with Rose back — might be really fun to watch. Up and comers: Watch out for Detroit, Toronto and Washington. Maybe none of those clubs is ready to really make a serious run at an NBA title this season, but all could find themselves in the playoff mix. Washington might really be the one to watch. The Wizards started 4-28 and finished the year on a six-game losing streak. In between, they went 25-19, the fifth-best record in the East from early January through early April. New faces: There’s five first-time head coaches in the East, and one of them has a title contender. Jason Kidd got the reins in Brooklyn, and if he’s wise, he’ll be leaning a lot on assistant Lawrence Frank, who’s probably an underrated tactician. Mike Budenholzer (Atlanta), Brad Stevens (Boston), Steve Clifford (Charlotte) and Brett Brown (Philadelphia) are the other East firsttimers. Other sideline bosses in new roles are Mike Brown (back for a second stint in Cleveland), Larry Drew (from Atlanta to Milwaukee) and Maurice Cheeks (Detroit).

he Miami Heat were not built for the purpose of winning only two titles. Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron James joined together with an eye toward building a dynasty. They accomplished the second leg of that feat last year winning their second consecutive title, by defeating the San Antonio Spurs. A lot of players on this team still have something to prove. There have only been five three-peats in NBA history, the Minneapolis Lakers from 1952-54, the Celtics of the ’60s, the Bulls twice in the ’90s and the Lakers from 2000-02.

Houston looks to rocket to top with Howard By Jon Krawczynski The Associated Press

The NBA season was barely over for two weeks, and the Houston Rockets found themselves in another heated competition to gain ground in the Western Conference. The Rockets were one of five teams to be granted a meeting in Los Angeles with Dwight Howard, the crown jewel of the 2013 free agent class and a player who could tilt the balance of power in the ultra-competitive West. And they won the bidding war, beating out the Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks, Golden State Warriors and Atlanta Hawks for Howard’s services. Now the franchise that was on the periphery of relevancy in the West faces an even more daunting task: turning the offseason victory into a Western Conference crown and possibly and NBA title. Howard, James Harden, Jeremy Lin and the rest of the Rockets won’t be sneaking up on anyone this season. And the West is loaded again, with the San Antonio Spurs back for more after a heart-breaking loss to the Miami Heat in the Finals, the Oklahoma City Thunder looking to get healthy and

become a factor again and the Los Angeles Clippers bringing a new coach and a loaded bench to the fight. The Rockets say they’re ready. “We can go as far as we want to go,” Harden said. “We have a lot of chemistry. With the addition of Dwight, we have all the right pieces. We have a lot of talent in that locker room. We’re no longer younger. Last year we’d say oh this team is the youngest team in the league and we could make all these excuses. But we have no more excuses.” The Clippers reeled in a big

star of their own in Doc Rivers, a coach who could be huge for a deep and talented roster that was looking for the right leadership. There were big changes in Memphis and Denver as well, while the Spurs, predictably, brought everyone back for one more run. “The West is obviously very tough, and it’s very deep,” said Mike Miller, who signed with the Grizzlies. “There’s no easy game in the West, which makes the season very long and grueling.” Here are five things to watch this season in the wild West:

Lakers demise?: Kobe Bryant is recovering from a blown Achilles, and it’s still unknown when he will be ready to hit the floor this season. History shows that counting him out is foolish, but the Lakers didn’t make a banner move after losing Howard. Now Bryant’s supporting cast consists of Pau Gasol and Steve Nash, both aging veterans who missed dozens of games due to injuries last year, and unproven journeymen like Nick Young and Wes Johnson. It all could add up to missing the playoffs for the first time since 2005. Thunderstruck: When Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, James Harden and Serge Ibaka lost to the Heat in the finals in 2012, everyone expected them to be back again and again as the new alpha dogs out West. But financial constraints caused the Thunder to trade Harden to the Rockets that summer, and their playoff run last year was derailed by Westbrook’s knee injury. Westbrook is starting this season on the sideline as well, and suddenly the Thunder don’t look as formidable as they once did. Bay Area heat check: The Golden State Warriors were one of last year’s biggest surprises, riding incredible shooting from Steph Curry and Klay Thompson to the Western Conference

semifinals. Now they’re back for more. They added Iguodala, Jermaine O’Neal and Marreese Speights and have a healthy Andrew Bogut from the start. “This year, I don’t think making the playoffs is our goal,” David Lee said. “Taking it as far as we can in the playoffs is our goal. If we play like we can, then we can be as good as anybody in the West.” Same old Spurs: After taking the Heat to seven games in the finals, why change? The Spurs re-signed Manu Ginobili and Tiago Splitter to keep their long-established core together. The only significant addition was Marco Belinelli in a bench role and their only big losses where on the bench, where assistants Mike Budenholzer and Brett Brown left for head jobs. With all the success they’ve enjoyed, it’s hard to blame the Spurs for standing pat. New-look Nuggets: After winning a franchise-record 57 games last season, the Nuggets went through an overhaul. General manager Masai Ujiri left for Toronto and was replaced by Tim Connelly. Coach of the Year George Karl was fired and replaced by Brian Shaw. And Andre Iguodala and Corey Brewer headed elsewhere.

COWBOYS (4-3) at LIONS (4-3) Line: Lions by 3 Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: When Cowboys WR Dez Bryant was asked this week to compare himself to the Lions’ Calvin Johnson, Bryant said: “I believe I can do whatever he can do.” In terms of career stats, Johnson has played three more seasons, so it’s not a fair comparison. But this season, Bryant (42 receptions, 569 yards, 6 TDs) has out-performed Johnson (33-492-6). However, I believe Johnson & Co. will come out on top this weekend. Dallas is 6-15 ATS in its last 21 games after a win (it beat Philly on Sunday), while Detroit is 11-4 ATS in its last 15 October games. THE PICK: LIONS

Line: Eagles by 5½ Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: Finally! I don’t have to hear any more complaints about my picking of the Giants, who won their first game of the season Monday. The Giants-Philly rivalry used to be one of the NFL’s best matchups. However, this hasn’t been one of its better chapters. The Giants are 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 meetings vs. the Eagles, but the underdog is 13-4-1 ATS in the last 18 series meetings. Philly — which will start Michael Vick after he missed two weeks with a pulled hamstring he suffered vs. Big Blue — is one of the worst plays in the NFL the past two-plus seasons. THE PICK: GIANTS

DOLPHINS (3-3) at PATRIOTS (5-2) Line: Patriots by 6½ Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: Has the annoying whining from New England subsided yet? Would Pats coach Bill Belichick just get over last week’s loss to the Jets? Your guy pushed a teammate in the back on Nick Folk’s late field goal. A rule is a rule. A penalty is a penalty. Again, get over it! Miami is 2-5 ATS in its last seven roadies, while the Patriots are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following a loss. THE PICK: PATRIOTS

BILLS (3-4) at SAINTS (5-1) Line: Saints by 11 Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: The Saints are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 home games, but I’m playing a hunch here. The Bills have covered six of their last eight games overall. THE PICK: BILLS

49ERS (5-2) vs. JAGUARS (0-7) at London Line: 49ers by 16½ Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: The 49ers have covered four straight games, and Jacksonville, has been, uh,

recovery from his offseason knee surgery, which held back the Redskins in a weak division. Most damaging: Cutler, because the Bears aren’t contenders without him, as enigmatic as he might be.

Jacksonville with a 1-7 ATS record in its last eight games. If one takes the 49ers out of the equation, Londoners have seen three teams (Steelers, Vikings and Jags) with a combined record of 0-13 entering their games. Poor blokes! THE PICK: 49ERS

BROWNS (3-4) at CHIEFS (7-0) Line: Chiefs by 7½ Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: I’m proud to announce the Browns’ 20th starting QB since 1999: Jason Campbell. (I’m guessing the Brandon Weeden Era is over in Cleveland.) It won’t be an easy spot for the former Redskins and Raiders QB. Campbell faces the Chiefs, who are NFL’s No. 5 total defense and lead the league with 35 sacks. KC has covered seven of its last 10 games in October. THE PICK: CHIEFS

Add in the uncertainty surrounding Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski, which has helped turn Tom Brady into a 55 percent passer and made teams less fearful of New England’s offense. Most damaging: Jones. The Falcons were one short step from the Super Bowl last year thanks greatly to him. They are also-rans now.

Running backs David Wilson’s neck problem has left the Giants with little in the backfield. Same thing for Dallas with DeMarco Murray fighting knee issues, Atlanta minus Steven Jackson (hamstring), Houston with Arian Foster hobbled (thumb, chest, hamstring), and Pittsburgh, which didn’t win when rookie Le’Veon Bell was sidelined with a foot problem. Most damaging: Bell, because with him the Steelers likely don’t fall into an 0-4 hole that they will spend two months digging out of. At least he’s back.

The Cardinals are a brutal 3-10 in their last 13 October contests. THE PICK: FALCONS

PACKERS (4-2) at VIKINGS (1-5) Line: Packers by 9 Time: 6:30 p.m. Bottom line: The QB carousel continues to spin in Minnesota and it landed on . . . Christian Ponder. Welcome back, son! Josh Freeman, who was abysmal vs. the Giants on Monday, is suffering from concussion-like symptoms. I can’t believe Vikes coach Leslie Frazier didn’t think of pulling Freeman in favor of Ponder vs. the G-Men. It’s like saying you’re not going to call the fire department as your dream home goes up in flames. The Packers are 24-10 ATS in their last 34 divisional games. THE PICK: PACKERS


SEAHAWKS (6-1) at RAMS (3-4) Line: Seahawks by 11 Time: 6:40 p.m. Bottom line: From the sad-buttrue collection: the Rams — after losing starting QB Sam Bradford to a season-ending knee injury Sunday — reportedly called, hold onto your hats, Brett Favre. Say what? The 44-year-old Favre, who had not played since Dec. 2010, told a radio station this week: “It’s flattering, but you know there’s no way I’m going to do that.” And there’s no way I’m going to take the Rams, who will start Kellen Clemens. THE PICK: SEAHAWKS BYE WEEK: Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, Indianapolis, San Diego, Tennessee

STEELERS (2-4) at RAIDERS (2-4) Line: Steelers by 2½ Time: 2:05 p.m. Bottom line: Can the Steel Curtain make it three straight? They’ll have a cross-country test here against the Raiders, who are coming off a bye. Interestingly, Oakland has lost 10 straight games (and are 1-9 ATS) after a bye week. THE PICK: STEELERS

JETS (4-3) at BENGALS (5-2) Line: Bengals by 6½ Time: 2:05 p.m. Bottom line: When you have a very good defense, can run the ball on offense, and don’t turn the ball over, you can be pretty successful in the NFL. And when the Jets have used that recipe this season, they’ve given bettors a pretty good treat. LB David Harris anchors the Jets’ solid ‘D’ with a team-best 57 tackles. I’m not sure there’s a more inconsistent/Jekyll & Hyde NFL team than the Bengals (2-2 ATS in their last four games overall). THE PICK: JETS


F. G. H.

REDSKINS (2-4) at BRONCOS (6-1) Line: Broncos by 12½ Time: 2:25 p.m. Bottom line: The Broncos have dropped three straight covers, including last week when they lost their first game of the season. This one could finish with a total in the 70s. The punters might as well stay home. Denver is 3-11 ATS in its last 14 October games, while Washington is 6-1 ATS in its last seven games vs. winning teams. THE PICK: REDSKINS

FALCONS (2-4) at CARDINALS (3-4) Line: Cardinals by 2½ Time: 2:25 p.m. Bottom line: The Falcons usually beat up on losing teams (15-8 ATS in last 23 games vs. teams with a losing record).

Newsmakers Marcia Wallace, voice of ‘Simpsons’ teacher, dies LOS ANGELES — Marcia Wallace, the voice of scoffing schoolteacher Edna Krabappel on The Simpsons, whose wisecracking characters on The Bob Newhart Show and other primetime hits endeared her to generations of TV viewers, has died. Simpsons executive producer Al Jean called said in a statement Saturday that her Marcia “irreplaceable character,” Wallace the fourth-grade teacher who contended with Bart Simpson’s constant antics, would be retired from the show. Wallace was 70. “I was tremendously saddened to learn this morning of the passing of the brilliant and gracious Marcia Wallace. She was beloved by all at The Simpsons,” Jean said. It’s “a terrible loss for all who had the pleasure of knowing her.” The statement did not provide a date for her death, or a cause. The actress’ credits ranged from playing a receptionist on The Bob Newhart Show to appearances on Murphy Brown.

On The Simpsons, Wallace provided the voice for world-weary Edna Krabappel, who smoked cigarettes, made sarcastic comments and finally found love in the arms of Simpson’s neighbor Ned Flanders. Wallace’s trademark “Ha!” punctuated Krabappel’s frequent wisecracks, and her character also was known for saying, “Do what I mean, not what I say.”

Jay-Z defends deal with store accused of profiling NEW YORK — Jay-Z — under increasing pressure to back out of a collaboration with the luxury store Barneys New York after it was accused of racially profiling two black customers — said Saturday he’s being unfairly “demonized” for just waiting to hear all of the facts. The rap mogul made his first statement about the controversy in a posting on his website. He has come under fire for remaining silent as news surfaced this week that two young black people said they were profiled by Barneys after they purchased expensive items from a Manhattan store. An online petition and Twitter messages from fans have been circulating this week, calling on the star to bow out of his upcoming partnership with Barneys for the holiday season, which will have

the store selling items by top designers, inspired by Jay-Z, with some of the proceeds going to his charity. But Jay-Z defended himself, saying that he hasn’t spoken about it because he’s still trying to figure out exactly what happened. “I move and speak based on facts and not emotion,” the statement said. “I haven’t made any comments because I am waiting on facts and the outcome of a meeting between community leaders and Barneys. Why am I being demonized, Jay-Z denounced and thrown on the cover of a newspaper for not speaking immediately?” he said. The two Barneys customers, Trayon Christian and Kayla Phillips, said this week they were detained by police after making expensive purchases. Christian sued Barneys, saying he was accused of fraud after using his debit card to buy a $349 Ferragamo belt in April. Philips filed a notice of claim saying she would sue after she was stopped by detectives outside the store when she bought a $2,500 Céline handbag in February. The Associated Press

Ghost stories, tours abound in Southern cities By Melissa Nelson-Gabriel The Associated Press

PENSACOLA, Fla. — A doctor who used a guillotine to perform amputations, a wealthy family marred by insanity and a man murdered inside his sealed and boardedup mansion are among the stories that frighten willing listeners who line up in towns throughout the South to tour supposedly haunted places. From Charleston, S.C., to Atlanta to New Orleans and beyond, ghost tours are popular with tourists and locals alike, at Halloween and throughout the year. New Orleans has year-round tours of all the spooky sights in the Crescent City, and it is well known in literature and popular culture through stories of vampires, witches and other supernatural creatures. But smaller Southern cities like Pensacola, Fla., and Mobile, Ala., are also touting their own haunted histories. “I think we are the gothic part of the country. We have a lot of skeletons in our closets here in the South,” said Diane Roberts, a professor of literature at Florida State University and author of books on Southern literature and culture. She believes the region has produced so many famous authors with a focus on the supernatural because the South has such a deep and conflicted past. “Ghosts can be a metaphor, and the South has history of grinding poverty, slavery, war and genocide of native people,” she said “We are collectively very guilty and haunted by our past in this region.” Tamara Roberts, a longtime guide for ghost tours organized by the Pensacola Historical Society, agrees there is something special about Southerners and their relationship with the dead. “These were our neighbors, our people so to speak,” said Roberts, as she weaved her way through the rows of tombstones at the historic St. Michael’s Cemetery in downtown Pensacola on a recent afternoon. “Ghost stories are popular all over the world, but I think there is a little of something in the South that to me goes back to family and community.” Pensacola dates to 1559 when Tristan De Luna and his Spanish fleet landed on the white sand beaches. De Luna briefly attempted to build a

settlement, but it was washed away in a hurricane. “Pensacola is such an old city, and there are lots of ghost stories around here,” said Wendi Davis, coordinator of the historical society’s ghost tours. The ghost tours are the society’s biggest fundraiser and draw hundreds of people each October. However, Davis says there is more to the tours than Halloween hype. “People experience things and they love to share their stories,” she said. In Mobile, the story of a downtown mansion owner murdered inside his sealed and boarded up residence, is a favorite of Carol Peterson, CEO of Bay City Convention & Tours, Inc. She has conducted ghost tours in downtown Mobile for more than 20 years. She says people claim they still hear the man’s ghost making noises from the upstairs bedroom where he was slain. Nearby New Orleans is well known for its connection with the paranormal, but Peterson said she believes Mobile actually has a stronger haunted history. “We have just as many ghosts and just as many ghost stories because we were founded before New Orleans,” she said. All types of people go on the ghost tours, said Roberts, the literature professor who also does the Pensacola tours. “You always get some who are there to hear a good story and they don’t believe in ghosts. You get people who are very, very much into hoping they are going to see something,” she said. “It is just kind of fun and it’s Halloween. Who doesn’t like a good ghost story?” Roberts’ favorite stories include the story of Pensacola’s Dr. Eugenio Antonio Sierra, who was buried in St. Michael’s Cemetery in 1849 after he lived to 99. Sierra used a guillotine to perform amputations on patients in his home office. Then there is the story of the wealthy Charbonier siblings who were buried in a family plot at St. Michael’s in the 1800s. One sibling was jilted in marriage and another went insane from syphilis. Despite being so intimate with the scary stories, Roberts says ghosts don’t frighten her. “Actually it’s more the IRS and spiders and things like that, that I think are scary,” she said.

Life illuminated by astrology By John Knoll

For The New Mexican


ablo Thacher sits cross-legged on the ground in Dharamsala, India, outside a hut he is renting. Tibetan refugees are flooding into India to escape Chinese prosecution in their homeland. The Dali Lama’s astrologer, Sunyi, sits next to him, drawing his astrological chart in the dirt with a stick, using marbles to symbolize the planets. It’s 1977, and Thacher has just completed a 4,000-mile pilgrimage from Israel, where he had lived in a kibbutz for a year near the Sea of Galilee, while working as a research botanist, studying grapefruit. uuu

“I wanted to go East,” said Thacher, 56, peering out over the top of his bifocals during a recent interview. “I had been reading Herman Hesse and became interested in experiencing something other than the Western paradigm with its emphasis on patriarchy and militarism. “But that’s over-intellectualizing my journey. I didn’t really know why I was in India. I just stepped off into the mystery. I was like The Fool in the tarot cards.” Thatcher, who now goes by Paul, said he had gone to meet the Dali Lama’s astrologer because he was ill and happened to be renting an apartment next to the Dali Lama’s compound. An English-speaking Tibetan he knew hooked him up with the astronomer, and his life changed. “After healing me, she read my astrological chart. She told, through an interpreter, that my life’s mission was to be involved in astrology and the healing arts,” Thacher said. When she read his chart, he said, he was blown away by her insight into his life — past, present and future. “At the time, I had very little knowledge of astrology.

“I read for hundreds of people, including Kurt Cobain, and after his suicide in 1994, I read for his wife, Courtney Love, which was very weird,” he said. “She sat up in bed while I read her chart, with black plastic wrapped around the area where Cobain committed suicide.” Eclectic to the core, Thacher also had a radio show in Seattle, and he began to work part-time in a naturopathic clinic, where he helped people with supplements and their dietary needs. “In the ’90s, there was a war being between traditional allopathic and homeopathic medicine,” Thacher said, remembering the time Drug Enforcement Administration agents raided the clinic where he worked because it was dispensing unauthorized natural supplements. “Thank God, the times have changed a bit.” After growing up in the Northwest, Thacher said he felt a need to get away from the rain-drenched Seattle weather. Santa Fe was the next stop on his pilgrimage.

“I knew from friends that Santa Fe had great weather, the opposite of Seattle, and I thought it would be a good place to practice astrology,” Thatcher said. “I moved to Santa Fe in 2001 to escape the grunge hipster scene and to refresh my mind and soul.” But Thacher was wrong about Santa Fe being a good place to practice astrology. He said you could blindfold yourself, throw a rock and hit an astrologer. “The market, at the time, was glutted,” he said. So he did what many newcomers do when they move to the City Different — something different just to pay the bills. “My first job in Santa Fe was as Santa Claus,” he said. “They gave me a Santa outfit and beard, and I stood outside Pawn City to attract attention.” Thacher continued to do the Santa Fe hustle, working a series of jobs he took as far as he could, while he established an astrological clientele. Finally, in 2004, he landed at job at the Sunflower Farmers Market (now Sprouts) in the DeVargas Center as assistant manager of the supplement section. “It wasn’t long before customers were coming in and asking for me by name,” he said. “It has been a very rewarding time of my life, but now I’m ready to move on.” He recently gave Sprouts his two-weeks notice. “I’m very excited,” he said. “When I quit a job, it’s like being reborn. With all the connections I made, I now feel confident that I can make a living as an astrologer.” Being a pilgrim, he used a pilgrim metaphor to explain astrology: “Scientific astrology fits the model of a journey,” he said. “We are all unique, and astrology helps people realize their path. In the process, we become our own heroes. Astrology helps people see their lives as great and epic.” Asked if he thought he would settle in Santa Fe, he waxed poetic: “I’m here to stay. How could I ever find a substitute for this vibrant, iconoclastic city with its narcotic, robin’s egg blue sky? Santa Fe is my home.”

ednesday marked the christening of the British royal baby, Prince George, in an intimate affair at St. James’ Palace, as intimate as can be in a chapel filled with the queen, three future monarchs, the archbishop of Canterbury and a famed photographer. And although the event was historically significant because George will become the head of the Church of England one day, the purpose of a christening is the same for all families of the same faith: to admit the child into Christian life. This next week marks another Bizia Greene christening — our little prince. Etiquette Rules! Our son won’t have seven godparents, but we will choose dear friends from our childhoods. And although it won’t take place at a palace, our ceremony will be at an architecturally significant setting, a glass chapel designed by Lloyd Wright (Frank’s son) on a point of land overlooking the Pacific Ocean. As a friend pointed out, one can’t get much closer to God than in a glass house surrounded by Mother Nature. The Christian baptism or christening, the Jewish Brit Milah or bris, the Muslim akikah and the Hindu rice eating ceremony are examples of birth ceremonies that provide an opportunity to present a baby to the community and welcome him or her to the faith. A baby naming ceremony is a nonreligious celebration when a child is “officially” named. The event has no legal status but has become increasingly popular with parents who do not want a religious event. Whatever house of worship or family home a child is welcomed to, one often encounters godparents, receptions, gifts or a combination thereof that accompany the baby’s rite of passage. Careful thought should go into choosing godparents. It is a huge honor and a responsibility, so choose an individual who will be prepared and able to fulfill the role. Traditionally, a godparent’s role is to oversee the religious training of the child, so they often share the same faith. Outside spiritual obligations, there are no hard and fast rules nowadays, but a godparent should be in regular contact with the family and take a special interest in the child. Parents usually select godparents who will bring something to the mix like adventure, culture, humor or sociability. As such, never forget a birthday or significant dates. Give thoughtfully. Find ways of keeping in touch. You can build up your own rapport together away from the parents providing a unique opportunity to be one of their first grown-up friends. Parents, godparents and guests should be smartly dressed for a birth ceremony. Parents and godparents should pay special attention to their dress and appearance on the day, as they will receive lots of attention that will be documented in many photos. It is worth wearing something in a “child-friendly” color that won’t show accidental stains and spills. Traditionally, the infant is dressed in white to symbolize purity at a christening. Many families have traditional christening gowns that have been handed down through the generations. Alternatively, the infant may be dressed in a simple white outfit. More modern parents may choose a sailor suit for a boy or a simple dress for a girl. On a practical note, dress the baby right before the service to ensure that the outfit is kept as pristine as possible. Your role, either as guest or godparent, is to radiate excitement and delight about the new baby, no matter how drowned out the priest’s blessing is by baby’s squawks and cries. After the service, it is usual for the parents of the newly celebrated baby to host a party for the guests and congregation. Choose a location in close proximity to the house of worship. The nature of the party usually depends on the time of day. For example, after a morning service, a buffet or family lunch is best, but afternoon tea would suit an afternoon ceremony. Traditionally, the godparent makes a toast. If there are lots of children, then it is sensible to provide some kind of entertainment or a separate area for them. Don’t forget that many guests will bring presents, so have an area reserved where gifts can be left. Gifts may have religious overtones. Traditional gifts also include an engraved silver picture frame, cup, fork and spoon. Monetary gifts or bonds also are suitable. Whether one is a devout follower or follows the less formal church of life, nourishing and encouraging a child’s full development as a human being sets an example for a life of service and fulfillment, a most faithful commitment.

Ariz. college taps Ortego as interim director Ex-SFCC chief to oversee Pima’s Community Campus in Tucson By Robert Nott The New Mexican

Sheila Ortego said she wasn’t looking to work following her decision to retire from the presidency of Santa Fe Community College in the summer of 2012 after a roughly 30-year career at that school. But someone put her on a list of likely candi-

dates to serve as interim director of one of the six campuses of the Pima Community College in Tucson, Ariz., and when offered the job, she said yes. Ortego starts her new job, which pays $173,000 — about what she earned at the Santa Fe Community College — on MonSheila Ortego day, Oct. 28. She’s under contract to serve as interim president through June of next year. “I’ve been taking care of my mom [in Albuquer-

She stressed that the college is seeking a permanent president and that she will be renting a house in Tucson for the next eight months while other fam-

Groups seek poet laureate for N.M. Poetry reading kickoff event set for Nov. 3 By Uriel J. Garcia The New Mexican

to a penalty. Almost everyone earned at least one penalty. “What sadistic minds invented this game?” one passer-by said as the games began. One participant said the course was not 150 yards long, but rather “two miles of extreme torture.” Last year’s champion, Jason “Burro” Reinhold, was up first. He pulled the course off in about 1 minute and 13 seconds. One of his first challengers, Nicholas Tompkins, did it in about 1 minute and 7 seconds. But Tompkins earned a five-second penalty for stumbling at one point after getting his wheelbarrow snagged on rocks in the second picnic circle, so his final time was closer to 1 minute, 12 seconds. One male participant got so far behind due to spills and slips that he broke into an impromptu karate attack on his wheelbarrow. Another man barely got over the finish line before collapsing on his back in the sand. Hasbrouck held her own quite nicely and said she was not distracted by the concurrent running of her dog, Cora, though the latter seemed to get in Hasbrouck’s way now and then. She said that she used to tie the pup to her wheelbarrow on jobs so the canine wouldn’t wander off, and as a result, wherever the wheelbarrow goes, Cora goes. After the first round, Tompkins was declared the winner by about a second. He graciously offered to let former champ Reinhold hold on to the champi-

Does New Mexico need a poet laureate? The Santa Fe literary community believes New Mexico can benefit from an official state poet, and there is a push to have a New Mexican poet designated with the title. The New Mexico State Poetry Society and Red Mountain Press, a Santa Fe publishing company, are two groups that are exploring the idea and the logistics of creating such a program for the state. “Poetry has some meaning in modern life,” said Susan Gardner, the copublisher of Red Mountain Press. “It can often illuminate the way we live and bring us to a clearer understanding of how we live in our community and our society and as individuals.” As a way to kickoff the initiative, the groups have invited five poet laureates to a poetry reading Nov. 3 at Santa Fe’s Institute of American Indian Arts. “It’s actually amazing that these poets are coming from all over the country,” Gardner said. “We’ve very happy with their response that they have made to support the establishment of the poet laureate here.” The poets who are invited include: Denise Low, who was poet laureate of Kansas from 2007-09; Michael Glaser, who served as Maryland’s poet from 2004-09; Walter Bargen, Missouri’s first poet laureate from 200809; and Luci Tapahonso, the Navajo Nation’s first poet laureate, who was named this year. Jon Davis, Santa Fe’s own poet laureate, who also will be at the poetry reading, said he supports the event and the groups’ efforts because it would highlight the literary culture in the state. “It would be a great thing to do and a lot of states already have poet laureates,” said Davis, who is also an instructor at the Institute of American Indian Arts’ creative-writing program. “It’s just a way of saying poetry is important here in New Mexico and we have so many great poets.” Santa Fe’s poet laureate is a twoyear appointment and serves as an educational program that promotes Santa Fe poets across the state, he said. New Mexico is one of only four states that doesn’t have a poet laureate, Gardner said. Even though there isn’t a formula for a poet laureate program, typically the poet designated the title is appointed for two years and his or her job is to travel the state, especially to rural areas, to promote the state’s poets and poetry. Selecting a poet laureate would be made by literary experts in the field, and would look at a poet’s skills, as well as the number of works published. If such a program is established, it would cost between $10,000

n what may be a first in both the sports and stone worlds, three men were all declared the world co-champions of the Wheelbarrow Steeplechase held in Railyard Park on Saturday afternoon. The event, which entailed running while pushing a wheelbarrow filled with two 25-pound rocks around a roughly 150-yard obstacle course of stone, brick, rock and dirt, drew 13 participants and led to a sometimes-contentious second round between some of the finalists. The steeplechase was the main attraction of Saturday’s Lithic Olympics, the culminating event in the weeklong Rocknockers Rendezvous and Symposium, which attracted about 60 stonemasons and designers to Santa Fe for an array of workshops, demonstrations and rock rolling. The symposium was put together by Santa Fean Tomas Lipps, founder and director of The Stone Foundation since 2000. The foundation has about 1,000 members, he said. The group initiated the Lithic Olympics — sporting events involving stones — during a 2008 symposium in Barre, Vt. About 30 participants gathered in the park Saturday for a match of lithobolos (stone throwing) before a stoic 13 of them — 11 men, 2 women — ran around the rugged rocks. An Australian shepherd named Cora — short for Corazón — also ran the course alongside her owner, Donna Hasbrouck.

Before the steeplechase began, participant Jonathan Courtland, a stonemason from North Carolina, said of the competition, “We have to move wheelbarrows with stones in them all the time, and that’s not fun. These games are about camaraderie, having fun.” The contestants raced along two rock-rimmed picnic circles, zigged and zagged in and around a half-dozen cairns (stacks of rocks), navigated elevated planks, and limbo-danced under a raised pole before crossing the finishing line. Spilling rocks out of the wheelbarrow earned a penalty of five seconds. So did knocking over the limbo pole. And failure to stay on course also led

Albert R. Romero, longtime resident of Santa Fe, beloved husband, father and friend, passed away October 13, 2013, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Romero was born in Clifton, AZ, on November 1, 1917, to Epiquio Romero and Mercedes Romero. Early on, the Romero family moved to Jerome, AZ, where he completed his schooling. Romero was preceded in death by his parents; his loving wife Josephine M. Medrano Romero; and his brothers and sisters. A proud WW II veteran, Romero served in the Navy, attaining the rank of SF3C, in the Asiatic-Pacific Theater. He received the Victory Medal. After coming to Santa Fe in 1934, he married his beloved Josephine Medrano on November 4, 1940, at Saint Francis Cathedral; their lives were filled with love and two wonderful daughters. Romero worked at LANL as a welder for thirty-two years. An energetic man filled with a wholesome zest for life, Romero developed many interests: he loved camping, fishing, jewelry making and was an accomplished oil painter. He loved all animals, especially dogs. Most of all, Romero enjoyed cooking hamburgers for his many friends and family. His gracious smile and warm heart will be missed by many. Romero is survived by his devoted daughters, Pearl Pinkerton of Santa Fe and Glory Cochrane of Albuquerque; sons-in-law Beau Pinkerton and Bruce Cochrane; step-grandsons, Trey Pinkerton, and Tony Pinkerton and wife Kim of San Diego, CA; step-greatgrandchildren Abigail, Emily and Cameron Pinkerton. The family sends a special thanks to the wonderful staff at Kingston’s Memory Care Unit. "They were our Angels!"

Died October 21st, 2013 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Katherine, called Joy by family and friends, was born January 1, 1921 in Farnworth, Lancashire, England. At the age of 2, she immigrated to America with her mother, following her father, who had traveled ahead and settled in Jamestown, New York. During the summer of 1941, at age 20, she traveled to New York City with a dear friend where she met Roy Robison, a United States Naval Academy midshipman who was on his third year cruise. That chance meeting started a friendship that endured the miles that separated them over the next years as Roy graduated from the Academy in December 1941 and began his naval career at the start of the United States’ entry into World War II. They were married on March 18, 1944 in Newark, Ohio, had a short honeymoon to NYC and then traveled to Bremerton, WA to meet Roy’s ship, the battleship USS Washington. Joy was a Navy wife and together they lived wherever duty assignments took them: New Orleans, LA; Vallejo and San Diego, CA; Annapolis, MD; New London, CT; Arlington, VA; Newport, RI; Norfolk, VA. and McLean, VA. Upon Roy’s retirement from the Navy they continued to live in McLean, VA where they enjoyed Naval alumni functions and Annapolis football games. Joy lived the last 16 years with her daughter Mary in Santa Fe. Joy was a longtime member of St. John’s Catholic Church where she served first as school librarian and then as church Liturgical Coordinator, Sacristan and Extraordinary Minister. She enjoyed traveling with Roy during his second career with the George Washington University Continuing Engineering Education Program. She especially enjoyed returning to England to visit London. Joy was a dedicated mother, grand-mother and care giver who enjoyed volunteering at various organizations, sewing and cooking. She is survived by four children who will miss her greatly. Tom and wife Brenda of Wenatchee, WA; Jim and wife Fran of Centreville, VA; Katherine and husband Marty Yakimovich of Wilmington, NC; and Mary in Santa Fe, NM; seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

PATRICK ANTHONY CLEMENT, MD Patrick Clement, 80, physician, passed away from liver cancer at his home in Santa Fe on October 22, 2013.

He was a lifelong activist for social justice, including his participation in the Civil Rights March on Washington in August, 1963 where he, in his own words, “proudly stood with Martin Luther King, Jr., and attempted, with Norman Mailer and others, to levitate the Pentagon.” As a young man, he chose military service with the U.S. Navy, and was known as CDR Patrick A. Clement USN/MC. From 1965-70, he served as a physician for the Central Intelligence Agency with posts in Greece, Italy, and the Middle East. Later he served as the medical director for an inner city clinic in New Haven, CT. He retired from military service in November 1995. In recent years, Dr. Clement was known by family and friends as a “gentle soul” with a special connection with animals, and with his beloved grandchildren. The family wishes to thank the caring staff of Ambercare Hospice, especially Virginia, Nancy, and Dr. Thron for their dedication and unconditional support during the last year of Dr. Clement’s life. Dr. Clement’s cremains will be interred at the Santa Fe National Cemetery. A private ceremony will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to the Santa Fe Animal Shelter and Humane Society where he and his wife, Lexy, first met over twelve years ago.

He later obtained his Ph.D in Physics at the University of Michigan. During those years he met and married the love of his life, Mary Livingstone McClean. John and Mary moved west to the "secret city" of Los Alamos in 1957 when John accepted a research position at LANL as a geophysicist. Later, they moved to the then newly developing area of White Rock, where they lived for 40 years. John continued his work at LANL until his retirement in 1998, at which point he continued to be involved in geothermal research as a consultant nationally and internationally. John is preceded in death by his beloved wife, Mary. He is survived by his two children, Mikel and wife Carol of Albuquerque and Wendy Burditt and husband Randy of Truth or Consequences. Also surviving their grandfather are two precious granddaughters, Jennifer Neeley of T or C, and Megan Burditt of Alva, Oklahoma. John was also the proud great grandfather of three great grandchildren, Buddy, Tara and Shane. John was a brilliant scientist, a loyal friend, devoted husband and a wise and caring head of our family. John was an advocate of education and was always curious about the world, and believed that asking questions and engaging in life was of paramount importance to the quality of our future. John will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege to know him. Our heartfelt thanks to Ambercare Hospice for their compassionate care and friendship, a very special group indeed. Family will commemorate John’s passing privately. If friends are so inclined, gifts remembering John may be made to the National Audubon Society, an organization loved by both he and his wife.
