A recent television commercial funded by a chemical industry group praising U.S. Sen. Tom Udall, D.-N.M., left some New Mexico viewers scratching their heads. Why would the American Chemistry Council, which represents Dow Chemical and other manufacturers, air ads for a senator long known as an environmentalist? And why would the group spend its money to build up the image of a candidate whose seat appears safe? (So far Udall, who is up for re-election next year, has yet to attract any Republican challenger.) The answer apparently lies in Udall’s leading role in a high-profile, bipartisan Senate bill that would overhaul the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976. While the Chemistry Council

Catholics in Northern New Mexico, even those who adhere to the party line on hot-button issues, reacted warmly to recent comments by Pope Francis in a wideranging interview published in a number of Jesuit journals. Amid extensive statements on why he became a Jesuit, his experience in church government and his vision of the Pope Francis church as a “field hospital” whose mission is to “heal wounds” and to “warm the hearts of the faithful,” the pope spoke frankly about abortion, contraception and gay marriage, acknowledging he had been reprimanded for not talking more about these issues. Francis stressed the teaching of the church on these matters is clear, and that he is a “son of the church.” But he

None of her students is physically present: They’re all sitting in front of their own computers at home. She gives them a few minutes to log into the system as she organizes some papers on her own desk. Martinez uses a microphone, an online white board and a question-and-answer box near the bottom of the screen to communicate with the students. She can instantly see who is responding to her questions. This is the world of virtual learning, the latest trend in K-12 education. New Mexico Connections Academy, a privately owned but publicly chartered school that opened in August, is the second virtual school in the state. It already has an enrollment of more than 500 students, as well as a wait-
ing list for some grades. The students come from all over New Mexico, including 27 from Santa Fe. It is yet another choice for students whose needs are not being met in regular public schools. According to a recent report by the International Association for K-12 Online Learning, about 275,000 public school students attended full-time online schools in 2011-12, while close to 2 million students enrolled in some sort of distance-education courses in K-12 school districts in 2009-10. Online schools now operate in 31 states and Washington, D.C., and many states are considering legislation to regulate them. Martinez, a 14-year veteran of public charter schools and one of 15 teachers hired by the new virtual school, says she sees a lot of value in bricks-andmortar campuses, but she doesn’t believe kids need to be in a classroom to learn. Although she might not recognize her students if she passed them in the mall, she said, online education allows her to better monitor their progress. “I like that the student is responsible for his or her education,” she added. “And we are more responsible for evaluating their learning.”

NATION&WORLD ‘Until the last drop of my blood’ Abducted lawmaker vows to fight for Afghan women as looming U.S. withdrawal creates more uncertain future By Nahal Toosi
The Associated Press
KABUL, Afghanistan he Taliban kidnappers moved her to at least 13 homes, made her sleep on the ground, and kept asking where she’d been, what she’d done and whom she knew. Every few days, she would be given a chance to call her family. Still, the militants would push her only so far — they knew they needed to keep their bargaining chip in good shape. Fariba Ahmadi Kakar’s four-week ordeal ended this month after the Afghan government gave in to her captors’ demands to free some prisoners. In an interview with The Associated Press, the 39-year-old Afghan lawmaker gave a rare account of what it’s like for a woman to be held captive by the Islamist insurgents. “I wasn’t tortured. I wasn’t under constant stress. But I wasn’t free,” Kakar said. She’s also lucky to be alive. Since July, several prominent women have been attacked in Afghanistan. Among them: two police officers who were killed in the south, an Indian author living in eastern Afghanistan who was killed years after her memoir about 1990s life under Taliban rule became a Bollywood film; and a senator who was wounded in an ambush. These and other attacks on female leaders in recent years have generally been blamed on the Taliban, though the Afghan militant group, mindful of cultural sensitivities, usually does not admit to targeting women. The assaults have added to growing fears that what few gains Afghan women have made since the U.S. toppled the Taliban government in 2001 could be erased once American-led foreign troops finish withdrawing next year. Being a woman in the public eye is a special challenge in Afghanistan, where tribal and conservative Islamic mores have long subjected women across the social spectrum to violence and discrimination. The spotlight can be a shield, making men think twice about mistreating a woman and perhaps even guaranteeing that she’ll be assigned a bodyguard. At the same time, it can make a woman a more attractive target for insurgents hoping to spread fear and weaken confidence in the Afghan government. Kakar is one of 69 female lawmakers in the 249-seat lower house of parliament, and she’s never been naive about the danger she and other prominent Afghan women face. Still, her initial encounter with her kidnappers was so swift and shocking it’s still something of a blur today. Kakar, her four children, her bodyguard and her driver were traveling from southern Kandahar province to Kabul, the Afghan capital, when a handful of armed militants on motorbikes appeared ahead of them on the outskirts of Ghazni city. The gunmen made the driver turn off the highway onto a bumpy, dirt road that led to a small village. The militants put the group in the home of an Afghan Taliban family, separating the men from the women and saying little. Kakar, though, quickly began pleading with the captors to free her three daughters and son, ages 2 to 20. She tried to calm her children but did not downplay what was happening. “I told them, ‘This is the situation in this country. I will try to make sure you are safe,’ ” she said. The Taliban fighters let her call her family.

Since July, several prominent women have been attacked in Afghanistan. Among those killed: two police officers and an Indian author whose memoir about life under Taliban rule became a Bollywood film. Within a couple of days, her children were released to her mother and brother. Kakar, though, was shifted from place to place and kept separate from her driver and bodyguard. Just days before the kidnapping, a fellow female legislator was wounded in an ambush by suspected Taliban gunmen not far from where Kakar was seized. Sen. Rouh Gul Khairzad’s young daughter was killed, as was a bodyguard, while other family members were wounded. The militants who kidnapped Kakar had a different goal: They wanted the government to release some prisoners, and Kakar was their leverage. In recounting her ordeal, Kakar wavered from calm to anger to wariness, and wouldn’t always delve into details. At times she looked faint, but then she’d break into a sudden grin. When asked what she did all day in the various homes in which she was held captive, she smirked and said, “Nothing!” She had only a vague idea of what was happening between her captors and authorities seeking to free her. The men, like many Taliban, were hardline Muslims who tried to avoid interacting with women outside their families. They would tell her their commanders were dealing with the details of her case. Now and then, Kakar would be interrogated by the militants — usually three or four of them, and they didn’t hide their faces. They’d ask her questions about her travels, her political activities and if she had met President Hamid Karzai. Nonetheless, they always treated her with “full respect,” she said, even cutting short the questioning if they saw she was getting tired.

Kakar leads a privileged life compared to most Afghans, and she was deeply troubled by the poverty and ignorance around her. There were no beds to sleep on, the food was often “inedible,” and there was no sense of any government presence. When she needed medicine, she’d give the militants some of her own money so they could buy it for her. “The people in these villages don’t even know what vaccines are,” said Kakar, a former development worker whose constituency is in Kandahar city. In early September, the captors told Kakar it would be just days before she’d be free. That same week, militants dragged Indian author Sushmita Banerjee out of the home she shared with her Afghan husband in eastern Afghanistan and fatally shot her. Banerjee’s 1990s tale of life under the Taliban was the basis for the 2003 movie Escape from Taliban. Kakar was freed Sept. 7. Her bodyguard and driver were released separately. But there are conflicting accounts about whom the government freed in exchange. Zholina Faizi, secretary of the Ghazni provincial council and one of the few in the government willing to discuss the matter, told the AP that seven male insurgents and one woman were released. But the Taliban, in a statement announcing Kakar’s release, said the prisoners were “four innocent women and two children.” The militants also emphasized they had treated Kakar “in a very Islamic and humane way.” Kakar said government officials told her four women and 10 children from Taliban families were let go, including babies born in prison. She said she was told the women’s husbands made them transport explosive materials, but that the women were unaware what it was they were carrying and were taken into custody. The ordeal has left Kakar even more determined to pursue her political activism, especially in light of next year’s presidential election, which she says will be a “lie” when so many Afghans lack access to government services or basic information. “I am even braver than before,” she said. “I will defend Afghanistan, especially the women, until the last drop of my blood.” As Kakar spoke, the news was rapidly spreading that suspected Taliban gunmen in southern Helmand province had shot and killed one of Afghanistan’s top policewomen, some two months after a fellow female officer was slain.
UNIQUE THIS WEEK
KABUL, Afghanistan — An Afghan wearing a security forces uniform turned his weapon against U.S. troops Saturday, killing three in eastern Afghanistan, officials said, in another apparent attack by a member of the Afghan forces against their international allies. The shooting took place in Gardez, capital of eastern Paktia province, Gen. Mohammad Zahir Azimi, an Afghan Defense Ministry spokesman, said. The area, near the border with Pakistan, has been a front line in fighting with the Taliban and other militants. The attack took place inside a base of the Afghan army in the city, according to a security official in Gardez, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to give details while the incident was still under investigation. A U.S. Defense Department official confirmed that all three soldiers were Americans, but that no further details would be released until after their relatives had been notified.
WASHINGTON — Days after mass shootings in both of his hometowns, President Barack Obama urged his most ardent supporters Saturday “to get back up and go back at it” and help push stalled legislation out of Congress so dangerous people won’t get their hands on guns. “We can’t rest until all of our children can go to school or walk down the street free from the fear that they will be struck down by a stray bullet,” Obama said in a keynote speech to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual awards dinner. Legislation calling for expanded background checks failed to clear the Senate earlier this year despite a strong push by Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, people whose loved ones had been killed by gunfire and other gun-control advocates. The bill was part of a package of measures Obama promised to put the full weight of his office behind after 20 first-graders and six educators were killed last December in a mass shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. Republicans and some Democrats voted against the measure.
WWII soldier’s letter finally makes it to daughter RENO, Nev. — A World War II soldier’s heartfelt letter to his daughter has finally reached her hands, seven decades later. Peggy Eddington-Smith was presented the letter penned by her father, Pfc. John Eddington, as well as his Purple Heart, during a ceremony Saturday in Dayton, Nev., 40 miles southeast of Reno. The father she never met wrote the three-page letter shortly after she was born and shortly before he died in Italy in June 1944. Donna Gregory of St. Louis found the World War II memorabilia in a box 14 years ago while helping her then-husband clean out his grandparents’ home in Arnold, Mo. Eddington, who was from Leadwood, Mo., wrote that he loved his daughter and her mother. The 69-year-old EddingtonSmith says the letter made her feel close to her father.
Israeli soldier killed by former Palestinian co-worker JERUSALEM — An Israeli soldier was lured to the West Bank and killed by a Palestinian former coworker, Israeli officials said Saturday. The soldier, Tomer Hazan, 20, was reported missing Friday by his family in Bat Yam, outside Tel Aviv. Israeli officials said Hazan previously worked at a Bat Yam restaurant with Nadal Amar, 42, who on Friday lured the soldier to the village of Siniria. Once there, Amar killed Hazan and hid his body in a water well, officials said. Upon his arrest, Amar, a resident of Beit Amin near Kalkilya, said he had planned to use Hazan’s body as a bargaining chip to win the release of Amar’s brother, Nur al Din Amar, who was imprisoned in 2003 for terrorist activities, Israeli officials said. Israeli military leaders have long warned its soldiers to be wary of kidnapping and murder plots by Palestinian militant groups. New Mexican wire services

BAGHDAD — Two suicide bombers, one in an explosivesladen car and the other on foot, struck a cluster of funeral tents packed with mourning families in a Shiite neighborhood in Baghdad, the deadliest in a string of attacks around Iraq that killed at least 96 people on Saturday. The assaults, the latest in a months-long surge of violence, are a chilling reminder of insurgents’ determination to reignite sectarian conflict more than a decade after the U.S.-led invasion. Thousands of Iraqis have been killed in violent attacks in recent months — a level of bloodshed not seen since Iraq pulled back from the brink of civil war in 2008 — despite appeals for restraint from Shiite and Sunni political leaders. The attack on the funeral was one of the largest single terrorist assaults on civilians in Iraq in recent years. It happened shortly before sunset in the densely populated Shiite neighborhood of Sadr City in northeastern Baghdad. Police said at least 72 people were killed and more than 120 were wounded in that attack. One bomber was able to drive up near the tent before detonating his deadly payload, and another on foot blew himself up nearby, police said. Less than two hours after the funeral attack, another car bomb blast struck a commercial street in the nearby Ur neighborhood, killing nine people and wounding 14, according to police. Gunmen later shot up a shop that has been discretely selling liquor in the largely Sunni neighborhood of Azamiyah, killing four people, police said. Earlier in the day, insurgents launched a suicide attack on a police commando headquarters in the city of Beiji, an oil refining center 115 miles north of Baghdad.
Sunday, September 22, 2013 THE NEW MEXICAN
Secretary of State John F. Kerry said there were no reports of Americans being killed, but the wife of an employee of the U.S. Agency for International Development had died. Four Americans were reported injured. Kenyatta said he had lost some close family members in the attack. Military and police helicopters flew over the shopping mall as ambulances rushed victims to nearby hospitals. The Kenyan army and special forces were called in to reinforce police. Kenya’s Citizen TV aired footage of victims arriving by ambulance at hospitals, including some who had been shot in the head and others covered in blood but walking.
It was unclear how many attackers there were. Kenyan media reported that two suspects had been killed by police or special forces. The masked gunmen, said to have entered the mall through a cafe on a veranda, reportedly let Muslims go and targeted non-Muslims. Kenya’s Daily Nation newspaper reported that people who couldn’t recite Muslim prayers were killed. Umar Ahmed, an 18-year-old who was injured by a grenade, told Kenyan television he was in the rooftop parking area when he heard shooting and screams. He tried to flee, but a gunman saw him and threw a grenade toward him. “I got scared,” Umar said. “I
tried to run down the stairs and saw someone running towards the top. I ran back and hid behind one of the cars.” He said he played dead. A gunman turned him over to make sure he wasn’t alive, and left him lying there. Children were among the dead. Westgate Mall is always crowded but had attracted extra visitors for a Junior Super Chef competition, one in a series being held each Saturday for chefs ages 8 to 16. One man told the BBC he had hidden in a storeroom before being beckoned by restaurant staff into a kitchen, where a group of people had sought safety, barricading the doors with giant refrigerators.

Pope’s remarks pose challenge for bishops
Learn: Students closely supervised
By Rachel Zoll
The Associated Press
Continued from Page A-1 They complete these tasks on their home computer, either their own or one provided by Connections. (For physical education, students must seek out opportunities in their hometowns.) In addition to being monitored by the teacher in Santa Fe, each student is assigned to a learning coach — a parent or guardian who tracks attendance, the curriculum, grades and assessments. Students can work ahead or play catch-up, but there’s not as much free time as some might think. In fact, the supervision is so close that some parents and students already have opted out. But for other students, it’s perfect, at least for a time. Albuquerque Realtor and former state senator Mark Boitano, who serves on the New Mexico Connections Academy governing board, often has said that virtual learning is ideal for students who do not fit within a traditional public school environment: Gifted students, bullied students, athletes who need to miss class for competitions and self-motivated loners who can excel when working on their own. But he agrees that many parents “don’t understand the rigor of the curriculum or the discipline needed to work in this kind of environment,” or the importance of maintaining strong relationships among the teacher, the learning coach and the student. “Those who we have seen stay only a short period of time didn’t seem to understand what they were committing to,” Boitano said. Christina May of Cimarron understands. She said her son Thomas was easily distracted in school, and when he fell behind in class and asked additional questions for clarification, the other kids noticed and made disparaging comments. He would return to the house with extra homework, which dominated his evenings. It’s not exactly a breeze now. “It is a lot of work,” May said. “You have to be focused and follow the schedule and keep on track. But because of the kinds of issues he had in school, we were already spending lots and lots of time on his work.” She said she spreads out his school day, giving Thomas frequent breaks but extending the hours from about 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. May, a work-at-home mom who just started as a substitute teacher for an East Coast Connections Academy, can afford to put time into planning and overseeing her son’s education. In a few years, she would like to re-acclimate Thomas to a bricksand-mortar school. “What I am looking for is that he gets more of a positive experience with learning,” she said. “He’s been much happier this school year than he has ever been.” She cautions parents to investigate online learning schools. “If the parents have the time to sit and work with the kids and monitor that work every day, it can be really successful.”
Grading online schools Although U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan said during a recent stop in New Mexico that online learning is “a great tool to engage students” because “there is the chance for children to learn 24/7 anytime, anywhere,” the results are mixed. While the movement is still quite young, a July 2012 National Education Policy Center report on student performance in virtual schools operated by the private K12 Inc. noted that less than 30 percent of students met Adequate Yearly Progress guidelines under the federal No Child Left Behind Act the previous year. The report compared that to the 52 percent of public schools that did meet AYP that year and emphasized that online students “consistently” lag behind the performance levels of other students in reading and math. A 2011 Education News Colorado/Rocky Mountain Investigative News network study reports that online students in Colorado are “losing ground.” In Tennessee, students at the Tennessee Virtual Academy made less progress than their peers in 1,300 other state schools.

setts, Virtual Academy students were recently ranked among the lowest in their state. The jury is still out on virtual schooling’s impact in Florida and some other states. K12 Inc.’s Farmington-based New Mexico Virtual Academy has only completed its first year of operations. But last year, its students in grades 6-11 scored the same or better in reading than other public school students in Farmington. Math scores for sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students in the academy on state Standards Based Assessments were on par with the scores of their peers in the city, but students in grades 10 and 11 scored lower in math than their public school peers. The state gave the academy a C in its A-F schoolgrading system, although the academy is contesting the mark. Boitano said Connections’ biggest academic challenge is its roughly 65 special education students. “Sometimes part of the recipe for their success is that they can make a personal and more intimate connection with someone they perceive as being supportive of them in their [school] community,” he said, and that’s hard to do online. “Our special ed teachers are trying hard in terms of both assignments and schedules to meet their [students’] needs to make that personal connection.”
Public school, private profit? Connections Academy, a nationwide company, was bought by global media giant Pearson Inc., which also owns Penguin Publishing and the Financial Times Group, for $400 million in 2011. Its New Mexico charter has an operating budget of nearly $2.6 million and pays its parent company $2,000 per student per semester — or $4,000 per year. The school can lease Connection Academy’s personal computers at $575 per computer per year, but many students already have their own. The state pays the school approximately $6,800 per year per unit (a measure that includes components like grade level and special needs), about the same amount as the state’s school districts receive for their students. Diane Ravitch, in her new book Reign of Error: The Hoax of the Privatization Movement and the Danger to America’s Public School, calls virtual schools “cash cows for their owners.” And the taxpayer funding rankles some local lawmakers, who see the privately owned Connections Academy and Pearson as profiteers. In fact, New Mexico Connections Academy’s application for a charter to the Public Education Commission, which approves or denies state charter school applications, had a rocky start. The commission turned down the school on the grounds that state law does not allow such institutes because they are not “brick-andmortar” facilities, but Education Secretary-designate Hanna Skandera overruled the decision. And in March, a District Court judge upheld Skandera’s ruling, allowing the school to open this August with a five-year charter. Rep. Mimi Stewart, D-Albuquerque, chairwoman of the House Education Committee, was one of the sponsors of House Bill 460, designed to stop the likes of Pearson, Connections and K12 Inc. from playing a role in running public schools in New Mexico. The Senate and House passed the bill, but Gov. Susana Martinez did not sign it into law. Stewart points out that virtual schools do not have to contend with the high overhead of a regular bricks-and-mortar school
and thus financially benefit from leasing their names, online curricula and computers to charter schools. Sen. Daniel Ivey-Soto, D-Albuquerque, said he is astounded by the $4,000-per-student cost. “Why is it that if I take a virtual course through The University of New Mexico, I pay $100, so for five courses that is $500, but Connections wants $2,000 per semester per student?” he said. With 500 students enrolled, that means New Mexico Connections is sending $20 million out of the state, he said. “We have enough problems in education that we don’t need to have private companies running schools and claiming they are not, with contracts that pay them more money while they spend less money on children,” IveySoto said. He noted that when a school district, as opposed to the state, approves a charter school, the district takes just 2 percent of that school’s operating budget every year to cover the cost of some administrative oversight. While acknowledging that online learning has potential, Ivey-Soto said he wants to see the movement “slow down some” while legislators determine how to regulate virtual schools. But it’s not clear whether he or Stewart will introduce any legislation in the next session of the Legislature. Nationwide, many states are looking for ways to use legislative tools to encourage, discourage or at least shape virtual learning programs, as a recent Education Next article by Michael B. Horn makes clear. Comparing several states’ legislative efforts in the online education arena, Horn notes that much of it is “frantic and uneven.”
The wave of the future? New Mexico Connections Principal Athena Trujillo believes virtual learning is likely to be the dominant means of providing education in the future. Elementary school teacher Lindsey Edwards agrees, saying, “I feel like this is what’s next. We’re going to be learning more and more online.” In retrospect, Edwards thinks she would have excelled as a student in a virtual school because she was always a little behind in her math work, and online classes allow students to go back and review a lesson plan on the computer and then email or call their teachers for help. Edwards said she likes that part of the setup. “It’s just one child asking me questions, just the two of us talking and not 18 other kids around distracting us.” She said she talks to learning coaches “hourly, daily.” She enjoys interacting with the other Connections teachers “all the time.” When she worked in a bricksand-mortar school in Albuquerque, she was lucky to grab five minutes a week to exchange ideas with other teachers. There are still lots of other questions. How do online students develop socialization skills? What happens if there are connection problems? But Boitano says, “Look, we just got up and running a couple of months ago, for crying out loud. We have 500 kids and a waiting list. That says a lot about the marketplace and what parents and students are looking for. So for a lot of kids, it is definitely the wave of the future. “But we’ll see. I’ve been following the charter school movement since its inception in 1999, and the idea remains that one size does not fit all.” Contact Robert Nott at 986-3021 or email@example.com.
NEW YORK — In recent years, many American bishops have drawn a harder line with parishioners on what could be considered truly Roman Catholic, adopting a more aggressive style of correction and telling abortion rights supporters to stay away from the sacrament of Communion. Liberal-minded Catholics derided the approach as tone-deaf. Church leaders said they had no choice given what was happening around them: growing secularism, increasing acceptance of gay marriage, and a broader culture they considered more and more hostile to Christianity. They felt they were following the lead of the pontiffs who elevated them. But in blunt terms, in an interview published Thursday in 16 Jesuit journals worldwide, the new pope, Francis called the church’s focus on abortion, marriage and contraception narrow and said it was driving people away. Now, the U.S. bishops face a challenge to rethink a strategy many considered essential for preserving the faith. “I don’t see how the pope’s remarks can be interpreted in any other way than arguing that the church’s rhetoric on the socalled culture war issues needs to be toned down,” said John Green, a religion specialist at the University of Akron’s Bliss Institute of Applied Politics. “I think his language calls for less stridency on these issues.” The leadership of the American church is composed of men who were appointed by Popes John Paul II or Benedict XVI, who made a priority of defending doctrinal orthodoxy. Over the last decade or so, the bishops have been working to reassert their moral authority, in public life and over the less obedient within their flock. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops warned Catholics that voting for abortionrights supporters could endanger their souls. Church leaders in Minnesota, Maine and elsewhere took prominent roles in opposing legal recognition for same-sex marriage in their states. Bishops censured some theologians and prompted a Vaticandirected takeover of the largest association for American nuns by bringing complaints
to Rome that the sisters strayed from church teaching and paid too little attention to abortion. Terrence Tilley, a theologian at Fordham University, said Francis wasn’t silencing discussion of abortion or gay marriage, but indicating those issues should be less central, for the sake of evangelizing. But he noted that bishops have independence to decide how they should handle local political issues. “Although Francis is sending a clear signal that he’s not a culture warrior, that doesn’t mean the bishops will follow in lockstep,” Tilley said. Few of the U.S. bishops who have commented so far on Francis’ interview indicated they planned to change. Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore, head of the bishops’ religious liberty committee, said in a phone interview, “Issues do arise and we cannot always control the timing.” However, he added, “Every time I make a statement about one of these things I will certainly take another look at it and ask, ‘Does this really lead people back to the heart of the Gospel?’ “That’s what he’s asking us to do. I think that’s a fair question. “ Lori said he expected no changes in the bishops’ push for broader religious exemptions from the contraception coverage rule in the Affordable Care Act. Dozens of Catholic charities and dioceses, along with evangelical colleges and others, are suing the Obama administration over the regulation. The bishops say the provision violates the religious freedom of faith-based nonprofits and for-profit employers. Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, head of the bishops’ defense-ofmarriage committee, said in a brief statement, “We must address key issues and if key issues are in the minds of those who are talking with us we will address them.” “In San Francisco, these issues are very relevant to daily life for the people of this archdiocese,” said Christine Mugridge, a spokeswoman for Cordileone. “As long as the people of the archdiocese have particular talking points that are pressing upon them, the archbishop will respond to those talking points.”
Embrace: Faithful welcome pope’s openness and candor Continued from Page A-1 said “it is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time.” And when speaking about these issues, he said, it must happen in context. “We must always consider the person.” In an email, the Rev. Earl Rohleder, who celebrated the 50th anniversary of his ordination earlier this year, didn’t mince words, either. “Many who are ‘obsessed’ with preaching about abortion, gay marriage and contraception, have seemed to me to be arrogant, wanting to be superior, and forgetting that we are all brothers and sisters in need,” he said. The pope’s call for finding a “new balance” or threatening “the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel” also resonated with many Catholics in the region’s pulpits and pews. Terry Garcia, for the past eight years the sacristana of the cofradía that cares for La Conquistadora at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, said he believes the pope is “making a very pastoral statement, and I believe it’s time we all wake up about the greater needs of our brothers and sisters. We’ve got a lot of work to do, not just Catholics.” To Garcia, the new pope is “taking us to a deeper level about how we look out for each other.” While his message might be “radical” to some, Garcia said, “That was Christ’s message, and he’s only taken us back to that.” The Rev. Adam Lee Ortega y Ortiz, rector of the cathedral, said he is “very optimistic” about the leadership of the new pope. Ortega said he preached earlier this month about how mankind is “created in the image and likeness of God,” but “we’re dealing with people with flesh and bones.” Some congregants, he said, felt he didn’t sufficiently stress the church’s views on homosexuality and same-sex marriage and complained. But more approved, he believes, noting he got a round of applause after his homily. “I was talking about the person,” Ortega said. “We need to talk about people, not about issues. People’s lives are at stake here.” The pope, Ortega said, “is challenging everything. That’s great. He’s saying, ‘Let’s put some thought in this, meet people where they’re at.’ ” Gustavo Victor Goler, a bulto artist, said he’s “excited about the direction” this pope is taking, as reflected in earlier comments about priestly celibacy (not church dogma, Francis said) and on issues of homosexuality and abortion. “It shows a step forward and a certain amount of progression,” Goler said, adding that as a Catholic, he himself has been leaning more to the left on such issues. He said he’s in favor of female priests, although at the moment, “You have to hold out for sainthood if you are a woman” of the Catholic faith. Rohleder also said he has been “heartened by Francis’ openness and candor, willingness to dialogue with all, and his attempts at transparency and consultation. More inclu-
sive, open conversations are long overdue and will be healthy for our Church.” He said he is pleased with Francis’ “emphasis on the church being the people of God. … The stories, experiences and voices of all God’s people should be celebrated. “Many of us join with Francis in focusing on God’s people and concern for the poor — not authoritarian structures, divisive politics or moral dictates — in building up the reign of God. He is a breath of fresh air.” On the more conservative side, Allen Sánchez, executive director of the New Mexico Conference of Catholic Bishops, also called himself “optimistic” about this papacy. “What the Holy Father has said in his whole interview is beautiful,” Sánchez said. Francis is not saying that gay marriage and abortion are not important issues, Sánchez noted, but that “there are other things that are important and we can’t be a one-issue people.” While the conference has lobbied the state Legislature to require parental notification before a minor obtains an abortion, Sánchez said the focus should be on the individual and on services such as child care assistance, home visits and prenatal care. “Decreasing violence against women is as pro-life as any other issue,” he added. “We have to encounter people where they’re at and move from judging to compassion and mercy.” He said the pope’s words convey that “it is a priority to also work on the other issues, not just pro-life ones in a traditional sense.” Sánchez points out that the bishops of New Mexico are working to pass a constitutional amendment to fund early childhood education. “That issue is as important as parental notification,” he said. The Rev. Terry Brennan, pastor at Our Lady of Guadalupe in Peña Blanca, also sits on the more conservative wing of Catholicism. He was one of the few members of the Catholic clergy in Northern New Mexico to publicly object to the Santa Fe City Council’s approval of a resolution supporting samesex marriage earlier this year. He said he has found that many Catholics are not aware of the church’s teachings on “topics of the day” such as abortion, contraception and same-sex marriage because “a lot of priests have not wanted to stir the pot, be controversial, so to speak.” He does address such matters from time to time, within an educational framework, he said. “I find the best place to go into these topics is in small groups, at [someone’s] house for dinner, when they bring it up and you are in a teaching situation,” Brennan said. “I am finding that so often, people want to express their own views.” As for Pope Francis, he has often been surprising, Brennan acknowledged, adding, “We as priests aren’t used to a pope without a prepared script.” Contact Anne Constable at 986-3022 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Udall: Bill requires more testing Hong Kong braces for typhoon Continued from Page A-1 publicly lauds Udall as promoting “rational, science-based chemical regulation,” environmentalists hope Udall will work to strengthen the pending legislation. Its critics, including Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., chairwoman of the Environment and Public Works Committee, say it could block states’ efforts to impose stricter regulations. Though each side comes from a different perspective, both agree the current law badly needs repair. The pending bill, known as the Chemical Safety Improvement Act, was crafted by the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., and Sen. David Vitter, R-La. Udall, as chairman of the Subcommittee on Superfund, Toxics and Environmental Health, stepped in after Lautenberg’s death to work with Vitter on the bill. Bloomberg in August said the bill would be “the first major environmental protection measure since the Clean Air Act was amended in 1990.” Following a hearing in late July, Udall issued a statement saying, “We urgently need to improve the  law so that it can effectively do what Congress intended — protect Americans from dangerous chemicals. Enacting major environmental laws is a very tall order. Despite near universal agreement that [the existing law] is broken we have struggled to find a bipartisan path forward. We now have a rare commodity — a bipartisan agreement on a bill that will make a real difference for American families.” The bill would require that every chemical in commercial use — including building materials, detergents and flame retardants — be analyzed and labeled as either a high or low risk. The federal Environmental Protection Agency would then conduct safety tests for chemicals posing a high health risk. Under the bill, the EPA would have the authority to ban chemicals ruled unsafe. New chemicals entering the market also would require testing. The American Chemistry Council is backing the Chemical Safety Improvement Act.
According to a recent report by the Center for Public Integrity, a Washington, D.C.-based watchdog group, the council spends $8 million to $10 million a year in annual federal lobbying, Ads similar to the pro-Udall commercials broadcast in New Mexico — which urged viewers to call Udall and tell him “his leadership in Washington is making a difference here at home” — also were aired by the group in support of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Sen. Kay Hagen, D-N.C., and two Republican House members. Though it might seem odd that the group would back a bill that gives more power to the Environmental Protection Agency, Bloomberg said, “The industry is backing increased regulation as it deals with mounting consumer concerns about the safety of products.” Even so, the Center for Public Integrity report said the Chemistry Council is becoming more aggressive in fighting new regulations at the state government level. Boxer was quoted by Bloomberg as saying that some states have complained the bill will restrict their regulations of toxic chemicals. “If we don’t fix these problems, we’re not going to have a bill, because too many states are objecting to this,” the California senator said. “States are the laboratory of democracy, and federal standards should set a floor, not a ceiling.”
Some environmental groups offered tentative praise for the bill. According to a May 22 article in The Hill, a publication covering Congress, the Environmental Defense Fund’s senior scientist, Richard Denison, said the legislation “is both a policy and political breakthrough.” Ed Hopkins, the senior Washington director of the Sierra Club, told The Hill, “At first glance, this bipartisan legislation appears to represent some progress, strengthening the EPA’s ability to protect American families from poisonous chemicals.” But on its website, the Sierra Club recommends several changes to the bill, including a response to Boxer’s concern that states’ authority to impose stricter regulations than federal law should be preserved. Tiernan Sittenfeld, who directs the League of Conservation Voters’ policy and lobbying efforts, agrees. In a telephone interview Wednesday, she said her group doesn’t support the bill in its current form. “We’ve got a long way to go to protect public health,” she said. But, Sittenfeld said, the League has been working with Udall to strengthen the bill. Udall spokeswoman Jen Talhelm said, “Sen. Udall has pledged to work with all stakeholders” to improve the bill.

HONG KONG — The year’s most powerful typhoon had Hong Kong in its cross hairs on Sunday after sweeping past the Philippines and Taiwan and pummeling communities with torrential rain and fierce winds. Typhoon Usagi was grinding westward and expected to make landfall close to Hong Kong late Sunday or early Monday. Forecasters had warned earlier that the storm posed a “severe threat” to the southern Chinese city. The typhoon passed on Saturday through the Luzon Strait separating the Philippines and Taiwan, likely sparing residents in both places from the most destructive winds near its eye. In the Philippines, Usagi left at
least two dead and two others missing, while in Taiwan nine people were hurt by falling trees on Kinmen island. Usagi was downgraded from a super typhoon on Saturday after sustained winds fell below 150 miles per hour. By Sunday morning, it was about 230 miles east of Hong Kong and moving west at 12 mph, the Hong Kong Observatory said. It said the storm would retain maximum sustained winds of 88 mph at 5 a.m. Monday after making landfall overnight. The observatory said it would consider raising the No. 8 storm warning signal later Sunday, after issuing the No. 3 standby signal the day before. In adjacent Guangdong province in mainland China, the government urged people

to prepare for the storm, which was forecast to slam into the manufacturing heartland of the Pearl River Delta as it passed. Guangdong authorities asked more than 44,000 fishing boats to return to port while neighboring Fujian Province evacuated more than 80,000 people from flood-prone areas and deployed 50,000 disaster-relief workers, the official Xinhua news agency reported. Cathay Pacific Airways and Dragonair said flights to and from Hong Kong International Airport would be canceled from 6 p.m. Sunday and resume Monday if conditions permit. China Southern Airlines also said it was cancelling flights to and from Hong Kong and other places in China, Xinhua said.

Private donors funnel funds to Syria’s Islamist rebels Cash flow undermines efforts to strengthen moderate factions By Joby Warrick The Washington Post
GAZIANTEP, Turkey — The stream of U.S. weapons heading to moderate rebel groups in Syria is being offset by a fresh torrent of cash for Islamist extremists, much of it from small net-
U.N. may see big action on Syria, Iran
works of Arab donors who see the Syrian conflict as a step toward a broader Islamist uprising across the region, U.S. and Middle Eastern officials say. The private donors, who use Twitter and other social media to collect millions of dollars from sympathetic Muslims, are providing crucial backing for Islamist militias that appear to be gaining ground in northern and eastern Syria, even as fighting stalls elsewhere, the officials said. Dollars raised over the Internet are wired between private banking accounts
and hand-delivered by courier, often in border towns like this city of 1.4 million, about 20 miles from the Syrian frontier, according to Middle Eastern intelligence officials who monitor the activity. Some fundraising pitches ask for specific pledges to cover the cost of a weapon, for example, or to finance an operation. For $2,400, a donor can pay for the travel, training and arming of a single non-Syrian fighter. While radical groups such as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, Jabhat al-Nusra and Ahrar al-Sham
have long relied on charitable giving from Persian Gulf states, the flow of private cash has enabled the extremists to retain their battlefield edge despite the loss of support from key Arab backers such as Qatar, which cut off aid to the most radical groups under pressure from the United States and Saudi Arabia, U.S. and Middle Eastern officials said. The donations also have undermined Western efforts to strengthen the relative position of moderate and secularist rebel factions that are the

intended recipients of U.S. weapons that began flowing into Syria last month, the officials said. Obama administration officials say that they were working with gulf allies to shut off private cash flows but that the efforts have been complicated by the fundraisers’ under-the-radar tactics. The organizers also take advantage of lax regulations in some gulf states that allow fundraisers to set up small religious charities and canvass in mosques and other public venues, U.S. officials say.

WASHINGTON — After years of estrangement, the United States and Russia are joined as partners in a bold plan to rid Syria of chemical weapons. More surprising yet, American and Iranian leaders — after an exchange of courteous letters — may meet in New York for the first time since the Islamic revolution swept Iran nearly 35 years ago. Hopes are unusually high as world leaders gather at the United Nations this week. While the results are far from certain, all players in the delicate diplomacy confronting them in the coming days could even come out winners in a world increasingly fraught with zero-sum outcomes. It begins with the U.N. Security Council scrambling to put together a resolution that is sweeping enough to ensure that Syrian President Bashar Assad surrenders all his chemical arms, and with sufficient penalties to discourage him from reneging. The five permanent members of the Security Council — the U.S., Russia, China, Britain and France — all hold veto power, and Russia has not shied from blocking a council resolution that would punish Syrian behavior in the civil war. The Russians were especially vigorous in promising to veto air strikes to punish Syria for the Aug. 21 chemical attack that killed hundreds of people in a Damascus suburb. The U.S. blames Assad’s regime for the attack; Russia says there is no proof that the regime was responsible and suggests it may have been the rebels who carried it out. Lacking U.N. approval, U.S. President Barack Obama — who had warned last year $21.99 that Assad’s use of chemical jcp argyle sweater jcp.com 850-5220 weapons would cross a “red orig. $34 line” — was nevertheless about to wage a limited air offensive $29.99 against Syria but pulled up short straight jeans and sought U.S. congressional jcp.com 860-3001 orig. $44 approval. It then quickly became clear that Obama would not get that backing, with polls showing the American public solidly against any further military involvement in the Middle East. At that point, Russian President Vladimir Putin stepped in and strong-armed Assad into agreeing to turn over his chemical arsenal to international control and destruction. Obama, faced with the prospect of attacking Syria against the will of both the U.S. Congress and the U.N. Security Council, jumped to accept the Russian gambit. “Putin has put himself on the line. This was not done lightly. This was not done to embarrass Obama,” said Stephen Cohen, professor emeritus at New York University. “This was done for what Putin and [Foreign Minister Sergey] Lavrov think is Russia’s national interest.” James Collins, of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and a former U.S. ambassador to Moscow, offered a simi* lar assessment. “Putin has put his neck way furniture, mattresses, custom blinds & shades, ﬁne jewelry, watches & Bijoux Bar out in terms of responsibility *Some exclusions apply.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Hypocritical critics in U.S. A re chemicals really worse than high explosives, napalm or radiation? The U.S. refused to sign an 1899 declaration banning deleterious gases. The 1925 Geneva Protocol prohibited their first use “in war.” Syria acceded to it in 1968. The Senate did not ratify it until 1975. Only recently has it been suggested that the prohibition might apply to internal conflicts. The 1991 Chemical Weapons Convention prohibits use of chemical weapons and provides for their destruction. It limits each country to one ton of weapon-type chemicals. The U.S. agreed to complete destruction of its chemicals by 2012, but still maintains more than 3,000 tons. French intelligence estimates that Syria has about 1,000 tons of weapon-type chemicals. However, Syria never agreed to the convention, so cannot have violated it. By international norms, a strike against Syria without United Nations authorization would be aggression.
Listen to victims Amid all of the news about violence against women in other countries, it should not be forgotten that the U.S. also remains fraught with similar instances of violence. I was shocked to read that the (“SF cop accused of rape won’t face charges,” Sept. 19) Why? Because of “lack of evidence.” And here we remain where we have always been: The woman’s voice apparently does not stand up to the man’s. It is outrageous that this woman has been forced out of her job and denied administrative leave while the officer she accused is working and facing zero conse-

little boys fighting on the playground. Everyone knows that systems and governments function best if we are working together and talking out differences to find creative compromises and solutions. It’s called democracy! Entrenched, stubborn obstructionism based on a single issue with narrow focus only hampers and impedes acting for the common good and in the best interest of our country and its people. Obstructionists who boast about being patriotic need to start acting like they actually are. Doesn’t Congress’ Oath of Office require acting to support the country and the people? And by working against your own government to shut it down — isn’t that called treason? Come on guys — get over it! Paula Lawley

To me, an observer, it appears that Santa Fe Police Chief Ray Rael has certainly not done what he could “to accommodate the officer.” And neither has District Attorney Angela Pacheco. I cannot even believe those words were used — it makes it sound like the victim was the perpetrator. And so it continues that the victim is punished.

Time for Congress to work
Water wasting at prison I would not have noticed or even cared about the cattle ranching taking place at the prison on N.M. 14, but someone had to start watering in the middle of the day. It has been going on all summer and started back up after the recent rainy week this Wednesday. If workers had been watering at night like everyone else, nobody would have noticed. But they had to water during the middle of the afternoon, when a significant portion of the water will evaporate. Whoever is in charge of this operation either is not aware of this waste of water or doesn’t care. Are we not in a drought? Are the aquifers not dropping at an alarming rate? It’s time to end this water-wasting operation.

(And Martinez might surprise us. Remember, she appointed independent — later turned Democrat — Doug Howe to a vacant Public Regulation Commission seat a couple of years ago.) Easley’s District 50 likely will be competitive next year, whoever gets appointed. Another is the Los Alamos-based District 43, represented by freshman Democrat Stephanie Garcia Richard. She won a close race against incumbent Republican Jim Hall last year. During this year’s legislative session, Garcia Richard — who had campaigned saying she would vote for Martinez’s perennial bill to stop issuing driver’s licenses to undocumented residents — voted against a procedural move that would have forced a floor vote on the bill. Republicans immediately paid for robo-calls denouncing her for “flip-flopping.” I don’t know yet who the GOP is going to run in that district, but expect this issue to rise again. And then there’s the secretary of state’s race. Even some Republicans have told me that Bernalillo County Clerk Maggie Oliver, a Democrat, will be a tough candidate to beat. But incumbent Dianna Duran, the first GOP secretary of state in decades, will fight hard to keep that job. This contest is one to watch. Contact Steve Terrell at sterrell@sfnewmexican. com.

ive Tom Udall credit. He may not be the most scintillating presence in Washington, D.C., but the man twice voted the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate by the National Journal had plenty of Republicans as well as Democrats in his corner when he challenged the Obama administration two weeks ago, when it looked like the president and Secretary of State John Kerry were gung-ho to launch a military strike against Bashar Assad. “The American people are not behind us,” Udall said at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. That statement is pretty obvious now, but two weeks ago, it was Udall who was in front of the charge, challenging a president of his own party when most others on Capitol Hill were on Rob the fence. And whether you Nikolewski agree with Udall’s Commentary position on other issues, on the Syria question, Udall was decisive and consistent. After all, as a member of the House of Representatives in 2002, he voted against military intervention in Iraq. “Early on, I didn’t have a sense of what the polling was,” Udall told me in a phone interview earlier this week. “I was just focusing on what I thought the right thing for the country was.” It turns out Udall was two steps ahead of Obama, who managed to stumble badly over a red line of his own creation. Scrambling to avoid sacking himself in his own rhetoric and potentially getting a Mideast war-weary electorate engaged in a civil war that features, by every measure, A) no good guys, B) no prevailing security issue for the U.S., and C) no exit strategy, Obama grabbed the slim reed offered by that lover of freedom and democracy, Vladimir Putin, and put military intervention on the back burner. I’m guessing that Sen. Martin Heinrich would have appreciated a heads-up from Obama. Just the day before the president went on national television and walked back his tough talk on Syria, Heinrich zigged after Udall zagged. The darling of many of lefties in the state, Heinrich came out in favor of military intervention. In his letter to constituents, Heinrich emphasized he wanted no boots on the ground but — too late — the damage was done. Within moments, Heinrich’s Facebook page was filled with responses, the overwhelming number of them negative. The other two Democrats in the New Mexico Capitol Hill delegation — Reps. Ben Ray Luján and Michelle Lujan Grisham — hemmed and hawed over military intervention. In strictly political terms, it worked for them. The only Republican in the delegation — U.S. Rep. Steve Pearce — came out against intervention, but it was Udall who was out front, appearing on Meet The Press and getting the attention. Just a week before the Syrian crisis, Udall also challenged the Obama administration and won. Working with Wyoming Senate Republicans Mike Enzi and John Barrasso, Udall complained about the Department of the Interior’s seizing of mineral royalties. The feds claimed they just had to do it because of that darned sequestration, costing Wyoming $53 million and New Mexico $26 million. The trio filed legislation to win the money back, and last month the administration backed down. The money is being returned. Then there’s the LNG deal. Japan wants to import millions of barrels of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from North America. They’re looking at the U.S., Canada and Japan to fill that need. New Mexico is full of natural gas. An uptick in the price would mean a windfall for the state, but the Obama administration hasn’t approved a free-trade agreement with Japan. Environmentalists don’t like the LNG deal because it would mean more hydraulic fracturing to get the natural gas from the ground. When I asked Udall this spring if he’d support an LNG deal, he went on the record and said he would. Hmmm, maybe Udall’s not the most liberal member of the Senate. Or, maybe he’s positioning himself as a moderate since he’s up for re-election next year. “I think the real issue here is standing up for New Mexico,” Udall said Wednesday. That’s what every politician says. But given Udall’s recent track record, even a skeptic would have to stifle a grumble.

Above all, deliver mercy
ope Francis — just six months in office — is not through shocking the world. First, he declined to judge gay men and women in an off-the-cuff interview on the plane flying back to Rome from Brazil in July. Then, in what obviously was a more thoughtful set of comments, told the world that the Roman Catholic Church should move away from being an institution “obsessed” with such issues as gay marriage, contraception and abortion. That is particularly a rebuke to some in the American church, including Bishop Thomas Tobin of Rhode Island, quoted in his diocesan newspaper as saying he was “disappointed” because the pope had not spoken about abortion. The pope’s interview is his answer not to Tobin, but to all who wonder what the new guy is up to. “It is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time,” Pope Francis said in the first one-on-one interview of his papacy. The 12,000-word piece ran in 16 Jesuit publications — Francis is a Jesuit — with comments released simultaneously around the world, including in the America journal in the United States. “The dogmatic and moral teachings of the church are not all equivalent. The church’s pastoral ministry cannot be obsessed with the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines to be imposed insistently.” What’s more, he said, “the church sometimes has locked itself up in small things, in small-minded rules. Ministers of the church must be ministers of mercy above all.” His predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, envisioned a smaller, more pure church, certain of itself and its dogma. By contrast, Francis pointed to the church as a place to welcome all, and above all, a place of mercy. He sees himself as one believer among many. The first question the interviewer asked the pope was direct. “Who is Jorge Mario Bergoglio?” His reply was even more so: “I am a sinner.” There is more in the interview (read it online at www. americamagazine.com) than hot-button issues. We learn that Pope Francis is not in the papal apartments because he prefers to live in community (“I cannot live without people”). He mistrusts a first decision and believes in waiting to discern the will of God. He talks about learning from his mistakes — admitting that he was too authoritarian as a young Jesuit leader in his home country of Argentina. He learned, growing older and wiser, to consult and listen when making decisions. His abrupt early nature, he thinks, led some to believe he was right-wing in his beliefs. He loves Mozart, Bach, Puccini and Wagner. His favorite movie is Fellini’s La Strada. The interview gives hints about the future of the Roman Catholic Church, home to 1.2 billion Christians. As humans learn more, Pope Francis knows they will change. “Let us think of when slavery was accepted or the death penalty was allowed without any problem. So we grow in the understanding of the truth.” This is a pope who follows Jesus, who demonstrated that faith is less about rules and more about love — love for God and for our fellow human beings. Jesus, of course, famously sparred with Pharisees so intent on rules that they had lost touch with grace. This pope wants faith, mercy, love to take center stage. He wants the church he leads to be a place of refuge for believers. He has not altered church dogma — in particular, he does not seem open to ordination of women — but in changing the tone, in changing the approach, Pope Francis is changing an ancient church. That, in turn, will change the secular world. His comments remind the world that the church is its people, not merely its bishops.
The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Sept. 22, 1913: The Taos chamber of commerce is making preparations for the big feast of St. Geronimo Day, when motorists from far and near will whirl into the pueblo to enjoy the dance. Word has been sent from Taos to The New Mexican that arrangements have been made to have a man with a team stationed at the Embudo sand hill to pull motors through it, free of charge. Heretofore one dollar was charged for this service. Sept. 22, 1963: Blanding, Utah — The Army will fire its artillery ballistic missile, Pershing, this week from Blanding, Utah, to impact 350 miles away at White Sands Missile Range. The 35-foot, 100,000 pound missile will be fired twice on Tuesday, once on Wednesday and twice on Friday. After the Blanding firings, the 400 troops from Fort Sill will move down to Fort Wingate, N.M., and fire five more Pershings into White Sands. The tests are part of the Army’s overland missile firings that started last May with a shot of the Sergeant ballistic missile from Datil, N.M., into White Sands. Sept. 22, 1988: Eight Asian camels have been introduced to Southern New Mexico in a brush-control experiment. The camels are on the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Jornada Range just east of Las Cruces. A Republican district judge Wednesday offered to help the county GOP organization, which is in hot water with its landlord and soon could be out in the cold. The landlord claims the party owes him $400 for September’s rent, $180 in penalty fees for three months of late rent payments, $350 in legal fees and other expenses. Others offered help at party offices as well. People have been dropping in and dropping off checks. Two checks totaling $225 were delivered by mid-afternoon. Earlier the landlord refused a $380 check for some of the expenses because it fell short of what he claims is owed.
COMMENTARY: EMILY BAZELON
Mental illness and access to guns NEW HAVEN, Conn. e can’t have all the freedom we insist on in this country. We can’t have near total access to guns and no way to track people with mental illness — along with a system for treatment so riddled with holes that’s barely a system at all. The combination — our approach to guns crossed with our approach to mental illness — is deadly. And however unlikely it is that the senseless Washington Navy Yard massacre will actually change anything, I have to howl one more time. In hindsight, Aaron Alexis was a walking alarm bell. He called the police to a Rhode Island hotel room where he was staying in August to say that mysterious people connected to an argument he’d had at an airport were “harassing him with a microwave machine and ‘speaking to him through the wall.’ ” He’d been investigated by police in Texas for shooting through his ceiling into his neighbor’s apartment and by police in Seattle for shooting out a car’s tires. About the second incident, he said he couldn’t remember what had happened because he’d blacked out. Alexis was a military veteran with an honorable discharge, though he almost got a lower classification for a “pattern of misbehavior.” Lots of dots, never connected. To members of Congress, the missed warning signs are reasons to tighten the process for receiving a security clearance at military installations. But that doesn’t even count as a finger in the dike. Let’s say tightening the rules for clearance would make the Navy Yard safer — what about everywhere else Alexis could have opened fire? There is a much broader, deeper question at the root of this tragedy: Why are we so attached to the right to own a gun that we allow people with criminal histories and mental illness to carry them, while doing nowhere
near enough to make sure they get the care they need? By now, what’s most depressing is how familiar it feels. After the mass shootings in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo., and Tucson, Ariz., and Virginia Tech — all by young men with untreated mental illness — we had the same national debate. I want to make sure to say, as I always do, that mentally ill people very rarely unleash terrible violence. The Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law (Disclosure: It’s named in memory of my grandfather) objects to focusing on people with psychiatric illness in the wake of shootings, because “mental illness by itself is not statistically related to violence.” Untreated mental illness, however, is a risk factor. Mother Jones did a service in 2012 by analyzing 62 mass shootings, 25 of them in the past seven years. The central finding: Nearly 80 percent of the perpetrators in these 62 cases obtained their weapons legally. Acute paranoia, delusions, and depression were rampant among them, with at least 36 of the killers committing suicide on or near the scene. (Seven others died in police shootouts they had little hope of surviving, regarded by some experts as “suicide by cop.”) And according to additional research we completed recently, at least 38 of them displayed signs of possible mental health problems prior to the killings. Add Alexis and make that 39 out of 63 — close to two-thirds. So what do we do? I turned on Fox on Tuesday night, heard someone rail against the mentally ill, and couldn’t bear to keep listening. I don’t want to get near anything that smacks of a witch hunt against a group that’s already discriminated against. The hard part here — and it’s really hard — is that to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill specifically, as opposed to making it harder for everyone to own them, the government has to
decide who the mentally ill are. You don’t have to be paranoid to worry about the creation and keeping of such a list. Who gets on it, and on what basis? What else could it be used for? After Newtown, as the Wall Street Journal’s Law Blog points out: New York passed a law that requires physicians, psychologists, nurses and clinical social workers to warn health officials about potentially dangerous patients, who then may be forced to surrender their guns without a court hearing. Mental-health professionals balked at the New York law, fearing it would tread on confidentiality and put the therapist and patient in an adversarial relationship. I share those doubts. But here’s the other side of the coin: At the moment, the federal government can’t enforce the far milder gun restrictions that Congress enacted in 2008 after the Virginia Tech shooting that make it illegal to sell a gun to anyone “adjudicated as a mental defective.” That law’s limited reach is blocked by the states that don’t report the names of people covered by it (mostly those who have been involuntarily committed to a mental hospital) to the national database for background checks. And the federal law banning guns for the “mentally defective” wouldn’t have applied to Alexis or the Aurora or Newtown or Tucson shooters, anyway. None of them had ever been involuntarily committed. That’s our stalemate. To some of us, it would be a frightening loss of freedom for the government to track people who seek mental health treatment. To other people, it’s a frightening loss of freedom for the government to make guns harder for everyone to buy. So we have lots of freedom and also lots of death. Time after time.

COMMENTARY: ROBERT MCCARTNEY
A doctor’s words wake up nation WASHINGTON or too many years, Janis Orlowski has seen the victims wheeled into her hospitals. First in Chicago and now in Washington. Young men killed or wounded in gun violence. “I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve walked into the emergency room and seen principally a dead young man lying on the cart,” said the senior administrator at the District of Columbia’s largest trauma clinic. “We are violent, we are aggressive, and we kill our own. That’s what I see,” she said. On Monday, it was too much. Especially after other recent mass shootings — Tucson, Aurora, Sandy Hook — she couldn’t remain silent. Orlowski, 57, spoke up at the end of a news conference where she was briefing the media on treatment of people wounded in the Navy Yard shooting, which left 13 dead, including the gunman. In unplanned comments that instantly made her an Internet and television celebrity, she used plain, direct language typical of her rural Wisconsin upbringing. The “senseless trauma” is “something evil in our society,” Orlowski said. She urged the public: “Put my trauma center out of business. … I would like to not be an expert on gunshots.” Orlowski’s dramatic plea drew praise especially from supporters of gun control. But it would be a mistake to pigeonhole her as a one-dimensional anti-gun advocate. Yes, the doctor would support stricter gun laws. But she stressed that legislation is not “the sole answer.”
Editorial page editor: Inez Russell Gomez, 986-3053, email@example.com, Twitter @inezrussell
Instead, as she explained in a one-hour interview Tuesday, the remedy must be broader. “I don’t believe that if you have gun control, then the world is good. I believe it’s a combination of how we view guns, how they’re available in our society, what we do with mental health, what we do with those people who find themselves on the fringes of society,” Orlowski said. To rely only on the government, she said, “is in some ways a cop out.” Orlowski said it was critical for society as a whole to identify and treat people suffering from aggression, post-traumatic stress or other mental-health problems. She felt moved to speak Monday partly because she remembered a conversation with a friend, also a doctor, who helped treat victims of the 2011 mass shooting in Tucson. The 22-year-old gunman, who severely wounded former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., was later diagnosed with schizophrenia. “The doctor I spoke with basically said, ‘Janis, if we had mental health available to our citizens, we wouldn’t need this trauma center,’ ” Orlowski said. Purely by coincidence, Orlowski’s news conference came a few hours after she gave notice that she will resign from her positions as chief medical officer and chief operating officer at Medstar Washington Hospital Center. I think Orlowski’s original comments had such impact because she appreciates both the depth and complexity of the problem. Her nuanced views spring partly from her experience as one of eight children in Mount Pleasant, Wis. Her father hunted,
and everybody in the community was familiar with firearms and the proper way to handle them. “Gun safety was something that was taught,” she said. Bad behavior with guns “wasn’t just forbidden by your parents, but it was forbidden by society,” she said. Orlowski got her first extended experience with the human cost of gun violence while working for 22 years at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. She has seen more of it since she moved to the District in 2004. For someone with such a high-powered job — she oversees a staff of 6,000 — she comes across as friendly and unpretentious. She said she “loves, loves” her current job but is leaving for a position at a nonprofit organization (not yet announced), also in Washington. That will allow her to work on health policy issues that interest her and maybe reduce her current workload of 80 to 100 hours a week. Although she hadn’t planned to say the words that made her famous, Orlowski was glad she did. She thinks it’s important to treat gun violence as a public health issue, as well as a socio-economic one. “If the chief medical officer of the largest trauma and burn unit of Washington, D.C., doesn’t say something about this societal ill, who does?” Orlowski said. “I probably should have done more of this. I chide myself for not doing more.” She’s done plenty. Orlowski has set an example for passionate, thoughtful advocacy that other leaders in medicine and elsewhere should emulate. Robert McCartney writes for The Washington Post.

MY VIEW: DAVID PAULSEN
Threats of force brought Syria to table
’d like to commend The New Mexican for printing Bill Stewart’s Saturday column (“U.S. cannot shirk its responsibility to the world,” Sept. 14) on Syria. There is only one reason Syria’s Bashar Assad and his arms supplier, Russia’s Vladimir Putin, even approached the negotiating table. That is because of President Barack Obama’s sincerely reluctant but potent threat of American military action. Assad and Putin knew that that could turn the Syrian tide against them. And for them that would be a problem. Assad needs the arms that Russia manufactures; he needs them to murder his people. And Putin needs to sell those arms. What our president needs is the support of his country and its Congress to enable him to take a few vitally important steps to renew America’s good name. The America that stands by idly watching women and children being chemically gassed is not the land of our parents. Like Mr. Stewart, I too find it difficult to disclaim the intentions of this president and his secretary of state. These are not Cheney oil profiteers who held secret meetings with the nation’s oil magnates to figure out how they could control the oil from Iraq. They are not the neocons whose blind support for Israel’s Netanyahu blinds them as well to the needs of the United States. Nor are they members of the John McCain society. Neither Obama nor Secretary of State John Kerry have the vaguest desire to engage our country in another war. Mr. Obama does not deserve the repulsive epithets tossed
he U.S. Forest Service has permanently closed the Bear Canyon Trail at the Randall Davey Audubon Center. The trail is one of only a handful of public access points to the Santa Fe National Forest that are within walking/biking distance of the city, and the only one that is not a mountain biking trail. It is also the only trail that offers cool shade and is not a steep vertical, which makes it the only forest trail accessible without a 20-plus mile drive to the elderly, the infirm, children and the out-of-shape. I came upon the crew installing the closure sign, a curious battalion of Forest Service desk jockeys with pocket protectors, way too many sledge hammers, and a know-it-all attitude — a sure sign that the closure is political. How many salaried Forest Service administrators does it take to install a sign? The sign states that the closure is to protect the Santa Fe water supply. The Bear Canyon stream — when there is one — does not drain into city reservoirs. There is a steep ridge between the two. In reality, the closure has nothing to do with the city water supply. One of the Forest Service employees installing the sign informed me that the trail was closed because, “There was a complaint that the Audubon Center was charging admission to the national forest.” The Forest Service does not close trails because one citizen complained. The Forest Service is not known for listening even when a thousand citizens complain. When I called to inquire about the trail closure, my call was neither answered nor returned. The “charging admission” rationale is ludicrous. The Audubon Center does not charge admission to any trail. A donation box is posted near its buildings. Contribution is voluntary. I’ve been running there for almost 40 years, and I’ve never been charged admission. The sign installers then changed their tune and said that the closure was about fire danger. Yes, we are living with an historic drought, but why close one short trail when the entire forest is open and campfires are allowed? The trail is not a campground with fire pits nor a logging area with sparks — it is a day hiking trail. Day hikers are less likely than any other forest users to start fires. The Forest Service itself, public utilities, hunters, loggers and campers start most fires. The National Forest is supposed to be a “land of many uses.” The Forest Service allows campfires, smoking, motor vehicles, hiking on any trail but this one, “controlled” burns, ATVs, hunting, logging, grazing, drilling, fracking and a host of other for-profit activities, but not day hiking in Bear Canyon? The public does not have to accept the closure with complacency. I hope that the many Santa Feans who regularly enjoy the trail will contact the Forest Service (505-438-5300) in an effort to reopen it to the people who own it. (Editor’s Note: The New Mexican called the Forest Service, and a spokesman explained that the trail was closed after it was brought to the service’s attention that the trail leads into the Santa Fe watershed, which has been closed to the public since the 1930s. Evidently, the trail should have been closed to protect the watershed.)

off by tea party Republicans, the newly re-voiced racists and far too many on the left, not to mention groups that have spent fortunes in time and in money since our first black president took office concocting phony scenarios to compare his honorable, if sometimes misguided, actions to those of Adolf Hitler.

Unlike those four, who rammed their deceptively named Patriot Act through Congress so they could expand their smarmy actions to the furthest degree, it is my belief that this president wants Congress merely to back him up, not, as some claim, to spread the blame in the event things did not go the way he wished. As Hillary Clinton indicated last week, the world needs to know that whatever action our president deems necessary will be supported by the force of America. Only that way, maybe such action would not need to be taken. Diplomacy is a poker game, and our president went to the table with a strong straight flush. Sadly this Congress we now have took a key card out of his hand, weakening it and us considerably. David Paulsen writes from Santa Fe.

MY VIEW: RACHEL CONN
Groundwater rule harmful to N.M.
n New Mexico, all water is a public resource owned by the public. The state currently relies on groundwater for 50 percent of its overall water demand. Gov. Susana Martinez’s Water Quality Control Commission recently acted to reverse a historic practice of preventing water pollution in the state. In stark contrast to that history, Martinez’s New Mexico Environment Department proposed — and the commission adopted — a rule that eventually will allow mine operators to pollute groundwater. The Legislature, through the Water Quality Act, requires the commission to adopt regulations that protect existing and future groundwater from being impaired by pollution. The Environment Department rule does just the opposite — permit and exacerbate water pollution. The rule creates standard-free exempt areas that will permit vast stockpiles of acid-generating rock, impoundment of toxic chemicals and other contaminant sources to be placed directly onto bare ground without a liner or other pollution-prevention effort. The commission’s current regulations
were written so that if the existing concentration of any water contaminant in groundwater exceeds the standards, no degradation of the groundwater beyond the existing concentration will be allowed. The just-adopted rule permits, rather than prevents pollution. Under the Environment Department’s rule, contaminated areas would be permitted to extend beyond the mine operator’s property onto adjacent private, state and federal lands. Further, the Environment Department is not limiting the duration of groundwater pollution. The new rule effectively will grant the copper mining industry the right to pollute public groundwater, a right other industries no doubt will want. In fact, the dairy industry recently filed a petition to amend the state’s dairy groundwater regulations to accomplish just that — to obtain the right for dairies to pollute New Mexico’s public groundwater. New Mexicans must hold the governor and her commission accountable for this harmful rule. Rachel Conn is the projects director for Amigos Bravos in Taos.
saiah Berlin, the iconoclastic English public intellectual figure of the 1940s-60s, wrote in his essay Political Judgement, “What matters is to understand a particular situation in its full uniqueness, the particular men and events and dangers, the particular hopes and fears which are actively at work in a particular place at a particular time …” A political leader has “a capacity for synthesis rather than analysis.” It is Berlin’s essay that came to mind when I read Sen. Martin Heinrich’s decision to support President Barack Obama’s request that Congress authorize force in Syria. His synthesis of this situation is spot-on. Obama didn’t have to go to Congress (I think he erred in doing so). But once he did, our senators and congressmen had to consider all of the evidence of this unique situation at this particular place and particular time. The use of chemical weapons in Syria has not been a one-time or two-time event. Bashar Assad has used such weapons on his own people in the past two years at least 13 times, escalating the doses dispersed each time as he tested his arsenal. In the Aug. 21 event, the 1,400 people killed could easily have been 14,000 — the weapon used had 10 times the dose that was actually dispersed; the delivery mechanism failed to disperse nine-
tenths of the available Sarin agent on the warhead. Imagine not 400, but 4,000 children dead, stacked as wood awaiting burial. The analogy that this could be another Iraq is not even close — this is of its own particular place and time. Clearly Assad has chemical weapons and has used them. No person with a conscience can justify allowing the ongoing wholesale slaughter. Anyone who cares about human rights will recognize the humanitarian and international law crisis Assad has created. Ultimately, this is about leadership. Martin Heinrich restored my faith in some in our Congress who can do the right thing at the right time for the particulars of the circumstance, even in the face of constituent opposition. In his analysis of what makes a good statesman, Isaiah Berlin continues, “[A good statesman’s] merit is that they grasp the unique combination of characteristics that constitute this particular situation — this and no other.” Heinrich did this and deserves applause for his courageous stand. Halley S. Faust, who lives in Santa Fe, has traveled often to the Middle East. His most recent essay, published this month in the Journal of Medicine and Philosophy, is “A Cause without an Effect: Primary Prevention and Causation.”

Thank you for reading this letter, and please don’t hesitate to contact us to schedule a training, donate or simply ask further questions.
am the executive director of the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico. I am writing today in response to the Sept. 9 letter to the editor titled “Stop Pretending.” As a transgender community leader and advocate, I was very concerned and discouraged to see this letter printed in one of the leading newspapers in our state. My agency works with transgender people and our families and loved Adrien ones every Lawyer day. Not only are transgender folks real, we are also subjected to harrowing, staggering violence and discrimination on a constant basis. The pioneering report, “Injustice At Every Turn” (www. thetaskforce.org/reports_and_ research/ntds) reveals the state of affairs for transgender Americans in the year 2011. What it illuminates is that transgender people experience twice the rate of homelessness as the general population and twice the rate of unemployment. Most distressing of all, according to this study, 41 percent of transgender people reported suicide attempts compared to 1.6 percent of the general population. That is 25 times the rate of reported suicide attempts. The National School Climate Study, conducted by the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (www.glsen.org/ learn/research/national-schoolclimate-survey) reported that 27.1 percent of their respondents were physically harassed, meaning pushed or shoved, at school because of being transgender or gender variant. GLSEN reported that a phenomenal 12.4 percent were physically assaulted for these reasons, which means punched, kicked or injured with a weapon. At the Transgender Resource
ublic Service Company of New Mexico strongly supports keeping the diversity requirement in the state’s renewable energy rule. A Sept. 7 editorial may have left readers with a different impression. We’d like to share our position. We submitted written comments to the Public Regulation Commission a few weeks ago that reflect our support for diversity. Our own renewable energy plans have included not only wind energy, but also a cumulative $180 million investment in solar energy as well as the state’s first utility-scale geothermal plant now under construction. We have created renewable energy portfolios that will allow us to meet all the requirements of the current rule while keeping customer costs low and creating jobs and tax revenue. Our contributions to renewable energy growth starting in 2003, when the New Mexico Wind Energy Center was built, include: u Supporting passage of the state’s Renewable Energy Act in 2004;

Sunday, September 22, 2013 THE NEW MEXICAN
MY VIEW: MENDY GLADDEN
MY VIEW: ALENA SCHAIM
Hate speech leads to violence Improving literacy improves lives
s the director of a nonprofit that teaches violence prevention, I was incredibly disturbed to read Linda Chavez’s letter to the editor about Chelsea Manning (“Stop pretending,” Sept. 9). When we at IMPACT Personal Safety teach youth and adults who do not fit within society’s rigid boundaries for gender, we hear horrible stories from students about how Alena they are afraid Schaim to use public restrooms out of concern for their safety. Unfortunately, experience and statistics support that fear. Fifty percent of transgender people experience sexual assault alone — this is nearly double (1 in 3 girls) or triple (1 in 6 boys) the national reported rates of abuse. While we work to help individuals in our community feel safer and more prepared in the face of violence they may experience, another part of IMPACT’s curricula is exploring how our culture can create a climate in which violence and perpetrators thrive. Ms. Chavez’s disgust for transgender people and cries for criminalization of an identity is just that. While it is important to
distinguish between gender and sexual orientation, there is much we can learn from other hate crimes. In 2005, there was a highprofile assault on James Maestas, a young gay man, in Santa Fe. Our community was appalled anyone could do such a thing here. People rallied, and IMPACT and the Santa Fe Mountain Center collaborated to redouble efforts to work to keep our LGBT youth safe. Naturally, we are always upset and motivated to do something when we hear about the most recent assault, rape or murder. However, if we fail to look beyond the moment of assault to look at the circumstances that perpetuate it, we are not truly working to stop violence in our community. We are simply reacting to the inevitable result of a set of circumstances. We must address not just the tip of the iceberg, but also the mass underneath. Interviews done as a part of The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later included telling interviews with the men who beat Matthew Shepard, a gay man in Wyoming, and left him to die. They describe how they were influenced to attack Mr. Shepard by regularly hearing jokes and derogatory comments. They say they thought they were just doing what everyone else wanted to do. It is easy to paint assailants as monsters, completely apart
from the rest of us. It is true they often have endured harrowing violence and neglect themselves, but as the above story illustrates, they learn the misguided belief systems that they later act on in the community. The fact is that transgender women pose little risk to the community — a misperception oftentimes hauled out at times to create a culture of fear and hatred (“Men dressing as women! In our women’s bathrooms!”). Transgender women do not commit crimes at a higher rate than other women. They are at much higher risk to become victims themselves. It has been shown time and time again that domestic violence, sexual assault, bullying and hate crimes can be attributed to rigid gender roles and “enforcement” of those roles. While prevention of crime against our LGBT community is reason enough to change these norms, it is also imperative we change them if we want to protect women and children in our community. Views like those recently published are dangerous to our community. I was very, very saddened to read this in our paper. Alena Schaim is the executive director and an instructor for IMPACT Personal Safety, a local nonprofit.
magine life without literacy. You can’t read books, newspapers, magazines or websites. No texting, emailing or letter writing. At the grocery store, you don’t have a list and must rely on pictures to select many products. You can’t help your child with her homework or read her report card or any information from the school. Your job prospects are grim. Getting a driver’s license could be tough, so you need to take the bus and ask others to make sure you’ve got the right one. You receive bills but can’t tell how much you owe or if the charges are correct. Let’s hope your landlord drew up an honest lease! Which medicine does what? How much do you take — and how often? These are just a few of the challenges those without literacy skills face every day. The 2010 census indicated that 34 percent of adults in Santa Fe County are functionally illiterate, and 32 percent speak only limited English. This means more than 50,000 people find their lives affected by difficulties with reading, writing and speaking English, and the repercussions are felt throughout the area. Literacy Volunteers of Santa Fe, a nonprofit organization founded in 1985, aims to strengthen our community by providing free tutoring to adults in reading, writing and speaking English. We teach U.S. history and civics to help Santa Fe residents who are preparing for their citizenship tests. Our computer literacy classes are also popular.
Improved literacy leads to better job skills and fosters greater civic participation, as well as increased involvement in children’s education. Since its inception, the literacy volunteers program has trained more than 3,800 volunteer tutors who have provided more than 436,800 hours of instruction to more than 11,600 adults in the Santa Fe area. Most of our students are classified as having “very low income,” and about a third are unemployed. However, in 2013, 133 of our students either got jobs or were promoted, and 40 students obtained U.S. citizenship. Despite the need for and success of our literacy programs, Literacy Volunteers of Santa Fe faces a funding problem. Since 2008, funding from state and federal sources has decreased dramatically. Grants from private foundations have dwindled. Therefore, contributions from community members are crucial. Your donation helps our staff test students, pair them with tutors and supply them with instructional materials. It
leads to new opportunities for our students, boosting their selfconfidence and building a stronger community for all of us. While we cannot survive without financial contributions, we also need those who are willing to give their time. Our offices are bustling with eager adults longing to improve their reading and writing, and we have dozens of people on waiting lists for classes. Our programs include basic literacy (both English and Spanish), English as a second language, and U.S. citizenship. You can work one-on-one with a student, or lead a tutoring group at a community center or workplace. Tutor training sessions are coming up: for English as a Second Language, the dates are Sept. 26-28, and for Basic Literacy, the training takes place Oct. 2-5. For more information, please visit our website, www.lvsf.org, and Facebook page, or call the office at 428-1353 to sign up. Mendy Gladden has been a Literacy Volunteers of Santa Fe tutor since 2011.

Feds to help state repair flood-damaged roads Some state parks reopen, but many S.F. National Forest roads stay closed The Associated Press
ALBUQUERQUE — Storm-weary New Mexico is getting some help from the federal government on flood cleanup. The U.S. Department of Transportation announced Friday it will make $2 million in emergency relief funds immediately available to help the state
cover the costs of repairing roads and bridges damaged by severe storms earlier this month. The storms overflowed rivers and sparked massive flooding, forced evacuations and damaged roads. Officials say many roads and bridges in counties and tribal areas in the state were washed out or severely damaged, including a section of Intertate 40 about 30 miles west of Albuquerque, where a sinkhole formed. In addition, Los Alamos National Laboratory on Friday reported millions of dollars in damages to environ-
mental monitoring stations in the canyons on LANL property, due to heavy rain and flooding. Those stations measure radioactive material and other contaminants that might wash down the canyons from old waste dumps into the Rio Grande. The city of Santa Fe and Santa Fe County have a water diversion facility on the river downstream from the canyons. According to the federal Department of Transportation, repairs from the September storms in New Mexico are so far estimated to be at least $9 million. The number is expected to increase as

officials continue to assess the damages. The initial $2 million will be provided through the Federal Highway Administration’s Emergency Relief Program. It will be used to reimburse the state for emergency work. U.S. Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., praised the move by the department. “Communities across our state are cleaning up from devastating floods, and many are facing expensive repairs to roads and bridges and other public infrastructure that is critically important in their daily lives,” Udall said in a statement.

Diesel fuel leaks into reservoir City workers, contractors clean up small spill after mishap
A small amount of diesel fuel leaked into one of Santa Fe’s municipal reservoirs and into the river late Friday afternoon. City water staff and the city contractor responsible for the spill were working to clean it up Friday and Saturday, according to Nick Schiavo, the water utility director. RMCI, a contractor hired by the city to take down an old water intake tower in the Nichols Reservoir and build a new one, had been draining water from Nichols into the Santa Fe River since early September before beginning demolition of the old tower. “The water began pooling and not going out [to the river],” Schiavo said. The contractor brought in a diesel-powered pump to suck out the remaining water and pipe it into the river. But a line running from a 50-gallon barrel of diesel fuel near the reservoir began leaking. Before workers discovered the leak, between 2 and 5 gallons of fuel had leaked into pooled water in the reservoir and was pumped into the river. Schiavo said when he heard what had happened, all he could think was, “Are they flippin’ idiots? You are not supposed to have anything like a barrel of diesel [fuel] next to a reservoir, much less a river.” Special blankets were used to soak up the diesel in the reservoir, and staff checked below the Nichols dam, but could see no sheen of fuel in the river water. Schiavo said the diesel fuel will be moved away from the reservoir, and the company will have to find some other way to pump out the water. He said the New Mexico Environment Department expects a report Monday. “It’s embarrassing, but we’re not trying to hide anything,” Schiavo said. None of the water in the Nichols Reservoir, and none of the contaminated water, is part of Santa Fe’s domestic drinking-water supply at this time. The water-treatment plant is closed for the duration of the tower replacement.

he Fiesta de los Cerrillos on Saturday was small and friendly, just like the village itself. It was not the big, rowdy affair oldtimers remember from back in the 1970s and ’80s. In those days, the likes of Johnny Cash, Junior Brown, the Last Mile Ramblers and other bands rocked the former mining town while the beer flowed amply. Still, it was good to have a fiesta again, said Carmen Arceo, 83, who recalls the fiesta’s heydays well. “At least there’s a little action,” she said, sitting in the house where she grew up, with the fiesta stage just outside her window. Arceo, still called “auntie” or “grandma” by all the adults in the village who grew up in her care, said the original fiesta was held in June to benefit the volunteer fire department. Back then, it was called Fiesta de la Primavera. Firefighters from all over the county would show up with their firetrucks for a little water war. They would aim their hoses at a ball suspended in the air on a wire, trying to force it in one direction or another. Mary’s Bar, still the town’s prime watering hole, would loan the fiesta organizers its liquor license so they could sell beer at stands along the streets, Arceo said. “We made a lot of money for the fire department,” she said. “Everyone wanted beer.” Insurance costs and health regulations surrounding the sales of warm beer finally ended the fiesta around 1987, to the best of anyone’s recollection. A decade later, it had a one-year rebirth as part of the village’s efforts to plan its future. In 1998, the fiesta was headlined by guit-steel-master Brown. It sported two acoustic stages, barbecue, beer tasting, art auctions and the firefighter water fight. The beer was still available at this year’s fiesta, but at Mary’s Bar. A petting zoo, kids’ play tent, art displays and interactive history events at the
A spokesman for Gov. Susana Martinez said the Governor’s Office was pleased with the federal help. “The governor has traveled around the state, from Las Vegas to Mogollon to Cloudcroft, and saw firsthand the devastation these rains have caused,” Martinez spokesman Enrique Knell said.

Restricting former staff members and commissioners of the Public Regulation Commission from immediately going to work for regulated companies and changing how the state agency is funded are among suggestions in a new report to New Mexico lawmakers. Issued last week by the League of Women Voters of New Mexico, the report offers ways to continue improving the long-troubled regulatory agency. But its authors acknowledge that getting any more changes to the PRC through the state Legislature will take time. The agency has recently undergone a major voter-approved reorganization, in which oversight of insurance firms and corporations was removed from the agency’s authority, and lawmakers specified new qualifications for elected commissioners. “I don’t see it changing until they see how this new law works out,” said Neva Van Peski, one of the report’s authors. The League of Women Voters report was two

Funeral services and memorials ALFRED COLLINS von BACHMAYR Alfred Collins von Bachmayr died Sunday, August 4, 2013 at his home in Tesuque, NM after suffering from cardiac amyloidosis for a little more than a year. Alfred was born May 17, 1948 in Salida, Colorado. He spent his first years on the Baca Grant #4 Ranch near Crestone, Colorado. Most of the ranch is now part of the Great Sand Dunes National Park. At the age of two he moved to a farm north of Fort Collins, Colorado. The farm is now the site of a large Budweiser brewery. For first grade he attended District #35, a red brick four room school house with eight grades and no indoor plumbing. In second grade he went to Graland Country Day School in Denver and continued there through ninth grade. He graduated from Fountain Valley School south of Colorado Springs in 1966. He graduated with a degree in Architecture from the University of Colorado in Boulder. Alfred apprenticed with an architectural firm in Aspen, Colorado where he worked on an early passive solar house for Steve Martin, the comedian and bluegrass musician. He then went on to design the award-winning passive solar dormitory at Fountain Valley School in Colorado. In the 1980’s he became involved with low-income housing and was a founder of the Affordable Housing Alliance in Boulder, Colorado. In the early 1990’s he moved to Santa Fe and worked with Habitat for Humanity designing a house for them that won a national award. Several examples of that house can be seen on Alameda Street in Santa Fe. He spent two years as the Director of Earthworks Institute. While there, he led a project in Fiji involving low-cost structures using local and native materials. He designed and was part of a group that built a straw bale house for an 84 year old great grandmother on the Navajo Reservation. In the late 1990’s he cofounded Builders Without Borders with a group of straw bale builders in New Mexico. They formed a network of ecological builders and other volunteers dedicated to natural building. He also was the founder of World Hands which built many houses in several parts of Mexico as well as Nicaragua; this experience led him to design several machines to aid in the building process using natural materials. Recently he assisted the Tesuque Pueblo in designing and building their straw bale Seed Bank. Most recently he was part of the group that developed the proposed Tesuque Community Plan of 2013. Alfred was for many years the Mayordomo of the Acequia de la Cruz (Cy More Ditch) in Tesuque. He enjoyed working with his fellow parcientes to keep the Acequia flowing. Alfred was a superb athlete - a triathlete, a swimmer and a kayaker who ran most of the big rivers in the West (doing the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon six times). He went as far as the Northwest Territories in Canada to run the Nahanni River. He won the Fourth Annual Kinetic Sculpture Challenge race in Boulder in May 1983, setting a course record. Alfred is survived by his sister, Helen v. B. Larsen and her husband Mark K. Adams. He is also survived by a niece, Kirsten B. Scott, her husband Jason and their three children, Kildee, Indianola and Fletcher Scott. He leaves his great friend and companion, Dr. Julie Breer as well as his two labradors who were always by his side. Alfred’s life will be celebrated on September 29th at 10:30 AM at the Santa Fe Children’s Museum amphitheater which Alfred designed and helped build with cottonwood stumps from his property in Tesuque, NM. Memorial contributions may be made to the Santa Fe Children’s Museum, 1050 Old Pecos Trail, Santa Fe, NM 87505.

More roads open as floods recede Access to homes cuts down the number of people in shelters By Ivan Moreno
The Associated Press
DENVER — More highways in Northern Colorado that were cut off because of destructive flooding last week are being reopened, helping reduce the number of people in need of emergency shelters and, transportation officials hope, reducing traffic congestion in heavily populated areas along the Front Range. “I think for a lot of people it’s not returning to normal, per se, but it’s starting to get there with some of these roads being reopened,” said Amy Ford, a spokeswoman with the Colorado Department of Transportation. The American Red Cross said fewer people are using their shelters now that they have access to their homes with some of the roads reopened. At the height of the disaster, more than 1,000 people were in shelters, compared to the 250 people in shelters Saturday, said Carmela Burke, a Red Cross volunteer. Still, the Red Cross planned to deliver 17 truckloads of supplies to flood victims this weekend, she said. The Federal Emergency Management Agency is continuing

to increase aid to those in floodravaged areas. So far, FEMA has distributed $12.3 million in aid, with the vast majority going to helping people find temporary rentals or making house repairs, said FEMA spokesman Jerry DeFelice. On Friday, transportation officials reopened Colorado 119 between County Line and Interstate 25 in Longmont. Colorado 72 to Colorado 7 in Estes Park is also open, and officials are trying to reopen a stretch of U.S. Highway 34 in Loveland soon, Ford said. Meanwhile, Coloradans
watched for more spills in flooded oilfields as crews waited for the waters to recede so they could begin cleanup operations. Four new spills were discovered Friday, including 2,400 gallons of oil from a toppled storage tank and almost 900 gallons from an unspecified source. Oil spilled from two other damaged tanks but authorities did not know how much. Another spill of 3,100 gallons was reported Saturday near Milliken, bringing the known volume of oil released since massive flooding began last week along Colo-
rado’s Front Range to an estimated 25,000 gallons or about 600 barrels. Most of the oil releases reported to date came from tanks operated by Texas-based Anadarko Petroleum Co. At least four of the releases reported by the company were in Weld County and spilled oil into the South Platte River or a tributary, according to information submitted to regulators. Other companies might have suffered similar problems since flooding began last week, but they have not yet been able to assess their damage.

Group gets funds to bolster Native American businesses in New Mexico ALBUQUERQUE — A New Mexico organization has received a federal grant to expand efforts aimed at boosting the development of Native American businesses. U.S. Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham announced Friday that New Mexico Community Capital was awarded a grant worth more than $400,000 from the U.S. Department of Commerce. The New Mexico Democrat says the investment will lead to
much-needed innovation and job creation as tribal communities continue to recover from the economic downturn. The money will be used to provide technical assistance in creating culturally aligned sustainable businesses. The initiative aims to reduce the skills gap for tribal employees and capitalize on sectors such as energy, water and agriculture. The Associated Press

Texas vows to keep up with lethal injections Los Angeles Times
HOUSTON — Texas appears to be running out of the drug used to execute prisoners in what has become the most active death penalty state in the country, but officials said they have no plans to change execution methods. “We have not changed our current execution protocol and have no immediate plans to do so,” Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesman Jason Clark said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times. Clark declined to discuss how the state plans to maintain its supply of the drug. To date, Texas has executed more than 500 people. Texas had been using a lethal injection composed of a threedrug cocktail until last year, when one of the drugs was in short supply, and officials switched to a single dose of the sedative pentobarbital. Switching to pentobarbital, also known as Nembutal, raised the cost of drugs for each execution to $1,286.86 from $83.55. Other states have encountered similar shortages after drug suppliers, facing pressure from opponents of capital punishment, stopped selling or manufacturing the drug. Ohio is expected to announce a new execution protocol next month due to the drug shortages. Authorities in Missouri have said they plan to use propofol, the anesthetic Michael Jackson was taking when he died. Georgia officials turned to compounding pharmacies for the drug, facilities that are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. The debut of their newly formulated lethal injection was delayed in July when a death row inmate challenged a Georgia law barring the release of information about where the state gets its execution drug.

Toll rises in Mexico’s one-two punch Government faces criticism for lack of response in disasters By Eduardo Verdugo The Associated Press
LA PINTADA, Mexico — Rescuers fighting tons of slippery, wet mud at the site of this week’s worst storm disaster unearthed a woman’s body Saturday, possibly one of 68 missing in a massive landslide that buried half of the remote coffeegrowing town of La Pintada. Houses were filled to their roofs with dirt and vehicles were tossed on their sides when the hillside collapsed Monday afternoon after several days of rain brought by Tropical Storm Manuel, which along with Hurricane Ingrid gave Mexico a one-two punch last weekend. “As of today, there is little hope now that we will find anyone alive,” said President Enrique Peña Nieto after touring the devastation, adding that the landslide covered at least 40 homes. Peña Nieto told storm survivors that La Pintada, a town of 800, would be relocated and rebuilt in a safer location as officials responded to a wave of criticism that negligence and corruption were to blame for the vast devastation caused by two relatively weak storm systems. Authorities on Saturday also found the wreckage of a Federal Police helicopter that was working on the La Pintada rescue when it went missing nearby on Thursday. All aboard died, though officials still could not confirm late in the day how many were aboard. All week in Mexico City, editorials and public commentary said the government had made natural disasters worse because of poor planning, lack of a prevention strategy and corruption. “Governments aren’t responsible for the occurrence of severe weather, but they are for

the prevention of the effects,” wrote Mexico’s nonprofit Center of Investigation for Development in an online editorial criticizing a federal program to improve infrastructure and relocate communities out of dangerous flood zones. “The National Water Program had good intentions, but its execution was at best poor.” Ingrid and Manuel simultaneously pounded both of Mexico’s coasts, killing at least 101 people, not including the helicopter crash victims or the 68 missing. Interior Secretary Miguel Osorio Chong told Mexican media that the death toll could go as high as 200 in the coming days, nearing that of Hurricane Paulina, which hit Guerrero state in 1997 and caused one of Mexico’s worst storm disasters. Guerrero Gov. Ángel Aguirre publicly confirmed that corruption and political dealings allowed housing to be built in dangerous areas where permits should have been rejected. “The responsibility falls on authorities,” Osorio Chong said in a news conference earlier in the week. “In some cases [the building] was in irregular zones, but they still gave the authorization.” Both the federal and Guerrero state administrations are new and cited cases in the past,
Car crash kills 2 in N.H. Century ride HAMPTON, N.H. — A car slammed into a group of bicyclists Saturday during an annual ride along the New England coastline, killing two riders and injuring three others, police said. The crash happened on a two-lane bridge in Hampton at about 8:30 a.m., just after the start of the 40th annual Granite State Wheelmen Tri-State Seacoast Century ride. It was not immediately clear what caused the crash, and the victims’ identities were being withheld until their families could be notified. Authorities haven’t said whether the driver will be charged. The route typically follows the Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine coastlines. The event included rides of up to 100 miles on Saturday and Sunday. Riders were encouraged to follow all the rules of the road as they encountered narrow colonial New England roads, steel decked bridges and weekend traffic. The ride is organized by Granite State Wheelmen, a bicycling club. The Associated Press
though Osorio Chong said that going forward, he is sure that Aguirre and the mayor of Acapulco will not allow flooded-out victims to return to high-risk areas. In a meeting with hotel owners in Acapulco, Peña Nieto told the resort city that the reconstruction phase has begun and that the government will help address the hoteliers’ concerns, including improving the main thoroughfare from Mexico City, the Highway of the Sun, which was closed by slides and damage in the storm, cutting off access for days. The highway reopened Friday, albeit with many detours skirting stretches damaged by flooding and landslides. As of Saturday, all of the thousands of stranded tourists had been able to leave Acapulco. Peña Nieto said he would visit the northern state of Sinaloa on Sunday, where Manuel hit with hurricane force Thursday morning. Three people were reported dead in Sinaloa. Flood waters hat reached waist-deep in some places in Culiacán, the Sinaloa state capital, including the city zoo. Some 24 animals perished in the hurricane, according to Mexico’s federal prosecutor for animal protection, includ-
ing goats, sheep and a scimitar oryx, an antelope from Saharan Africa that is now extinct in the wild. The giraffe cages were flooded and the storm damaged the reptile exhibit. Zoo director Diego Garcia Herredia said the animals had shelter, but that stress from the storm may have prevented some from seeking protection. The storms affected 24 of Mexico’s 31 states and 371 municipalities, which are the equivalent of counties. More than 58,000 people were evacuated, with 43,000 taken to shelters. Some 1,000 donation centers have been set up around the country, with about 700 tons of aid arriving so far. Almost 800,000 people lost power across the country, though the Federal Electricity Commission said 94 percent of service had been restored as of Saturday morning. Seventy-two key highways were damaged. The investigations center, known as CIDAC for its initials in Spanish, said Mexico had not been hit by two simultaneous storms since 1958. The editorial said that while rescue efforts and aid are indeed humanitarian, they also provide good images for opportunistic politicians. Prevention “like that in developed countries, designed to avoid the negative impact of natural events on people, doesn’t seem to sell advertising or create grateful constituents,” read the editorial.

Montoya went to work for the New Mexico Highway Department, testing soil, and later became a layout engineer for McKee contractors at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Since he had top-security clearance, he later worked for the University of California as a senior technician of metallurgy.

He also remains active with Chapter 372 of the New Mexico Military Department of the Purple Heart, where he has held every office within the organization but that of commander. “I never wanted to be the one in charge because I needed to stay focused on my art,” he said. Every once in a while, when Montoya hears the whistle of a train, he’s transported back to a different time. “When I hear the train coming, I remember my mother, my grandmother and all the people in my family who helped me along the way.”

Thinking Demonettes take 3rd in tournament too much Everybody puts in what they need to do, “ can ruin and it’s been great.” success I VOLLEYBALL
By James Barron The New Mexican
know how Jim Furyk felt last Sunday. OK, not exactly. I’ve never lost a PGA tournament after shooting a 12-under par 59. But I do know what it’s like to be playing a sport at a high level — for me, I mean — then suddenly have the wheels come off. All of us who’ve played sports do. In my case, I particularly remember having a run at a bowlJim Gordon ing alley one day. Strike after strike. The Anti-Fan Had no idea how I was doing what I was doing, of course. But that was all right. I was still doing it. It was a slow day at the lanes, and the alley’s manager noticed the run I was on and came down and started keeping score for me. About that time, something dreadful happened. I started to think. The strikes stopped. The manager left. I thought of that day as I read a Karen Crouse New York Times piece on Furyk, who on the second day of the BMW Championship in Lake Forest, Ill., tied a PGA record with a 59. The last two rounds, he didn’t exactly collapse, but he slowly surrendered the tournament lead and ended up third. After his magic round, Furyk said, “If you sat me down 10 feet from the hole 18 times today, I wasn’t going to make 12 out of the 18, more than likely. So I always scratch my head and try to figure out how you get to 59.” The trying to figure it out is the problem. Crouse quoted mental coach Rob Polishook, who said that cerebral golfers often make the mistake of overthinking after a great round. “They immediately think about what they did to make the score, and just this process alone takes them out of the present moment and into the past,” he said. Ah, being out of the present moment. You don’t have to be an athlete to run into problems with that. Sometimes literally run into problems. Every time I do something clumsy, like bump into a doorway, I realize I did it because my mind was anywhere but the present moment and the present task. Sometimes it’s not the past I’m dwelling on, but the futuren — thinking about that day’s agenda, or next week’s or next year’s. Sometimes it’s simple speculation — what if this happens, what if that happens, what if … ouch. People have different ways of staying present. Not surprisingly for a priest, when I remember to, I say a simple prayer, “Lord, be with me as I [fill in the particular task],” and it works. Maybe if I had used that prayer decades ago in that alley I wouldn’t have followed a 263 with a … 112.

The vibe doesn’t feel exactly the way it did during the basketball season for Kayla Herrera. But it sure feels similar in many ways as a member of the Santa Fe High volleyball team. The ending wasn’t what Herrera and the Demonettes wanted on Saturday afternoon, but they walked away with the third-place trophy — their best effort in several seasons — of the

Tournament of Champions in Toby Roybal Memorial Gymnasium. After getting swept by Farmington in the morning semifinals, the Demonettes rebounded with a 25-20, 25-21, 25-22 win over Los Lunas. That moved Santa Fe High to 8-2 on the season, its best start under head
coach Sam Estrada. While it doesn’t quite compare to the 18-0 start the girls basketball team had in 2012, Herrera sees a connection. “We have the athleticism, like we did on the basketball court,” Herrera said. “Everybody puts in what they need to do, and it’s been great.”
What wasn’t great was playing without two rotation players against the Lady Scorpions, who ended up losing to defending champion Piedra Vista 25-22. 25-18, 25-13. Middle hitter Sabrina Lozada-Cabbage was in Denver for a basketball camp, while defensive specialist Allyja Ramirez took the PSATs. Of the two absences, Ramirez’s shook the Demonettes more, as their defensive rotation suffered.

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL Mercy rule employed in St. Michael’s 50-0 blowout over Robertson
Robertson’s James Gonzales III attempts to run past St. Michael’s defense during Saturday’s game. KATHARINE EGLI/FOR THE NEW MEXICAN
By Will Webber The New Mexican
ebuilding? Try completely reloaded and clearly the team to beat. The top-ranked St. Michael’s football team rolled to another impressive win Saturday afternoon at the Christian Brothers Athletic Complex, blistering overmatched Robertson 50-0 in a nondistrict game shortened by the mercy rule just one play into the fourth quarter. Daniel Ortega rushed for 186 yards and four touchdowns, quarterback Keith Dominguez passed for 184 yards and two scores, and the Horsemen defense was better than it has been all season. About the only thing that irked head coach Joey Fernandez after the referees halted play with 11 minutes, 49 seconds left was the game’s final play. It involved the players ignoring their coach’s orders and taking it upon themselves to call a trick play on a point-after attempt following Nathanyal Leyba’s first touchdown as a varsity player.
Dominguez took the snap on Julio Cesar Garcia’s extra point attempt and passed to Armando Blea for a 2-point conversion, thus initiating the 50-point mercy rule. Had Garcia kicked it, the game would have continued. “I don’t like running the score up on anybody,” Fernandez said. “I don’t know who was responsible, but I didn’t call it. That’s not the way we do things around here.” Perhaps. But one thing the Horsemen are making a habit of is winning. They have taken 29 of their last 30 games, including a school record 17 straight. This season they have picked up wins in the Four Corners area (Bloomfield), the Permian Basin (Lovington) and two blowout victories at home (Robertson and St. Pius X). They are one of just four undefeated teams remaining in Class AAA. Given the fact that they returned just one starter on offense and three on the entire team, it should come as a surprise. “Really, it’s just the way we practice and prepare,” Ortega said. “I guess there should have been
a drop off after all the guys we lost, but this team works every day. I’m kind of surprised, but maybe I shouldn’t be.” St. Michael’s punted on its first possession, then scored on seven of its next eight drives to end the day. The lone exception was a fumbled handoff that gave Robertson the ball in Horsemen territory for the first time — midway through the second quarter. The Cardinals (1-3) didn’t manage to get a first down until the final minute of the first half. They were outgained 430-50 in total yardage and were forced to punt on seven of their nine possessions. It wasn’t until the waning moments of the opening quarter that they had consecutive plays of positive yardage. In short, the Horsemen dominated the game at the line of scrimmage. Time and again they had defensive players in Robertson’s backfield, sacking Cardinals quarterback Nathan Lesperance twice in the first quarter and holding the redbirds to just

1905 — Willie Anderson wins the U.S. Open for the fourth time in five years, beating Alex Smith with a 314-total. 1911 — Cy Young, 44, beats the Pittsburgh Pirates 1-0 for his 511th and final major league victory. 1927 — Gene Tunney wins a unanimous 10-round decision over Jack Dempsey at Soldier Field in Chicago to retain his world heavyweight title. The fight is marred by a long 10-count in the seventh round. Dempsey knocks Tunney to the mat, but Dempsey doesn’t go to a neutral corner. The referee doesn’t start counting until four or five seconds after Tunney is down. Tunney regains his feet and goes on to win.

BUCCANEERS (0-2) at PATRIOTS (2-0) Line: Patriots by 7 Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: If a team was ever going to have a mutiny, it would have to be the Buccaneers, wouldn’t it, me matey? Reports are circulating about coach Greg Schiano having rifts with QB Josh Freeman and CB Darrelle Revis. (Bet you wish you were back with laid-back Rexy, don’t you?) I’ll take a chance with the better team — and coach. THE PICK: PATRIOTS
Bottom line: The Texans are the first team since the 1970 merger to win their first two games on the game’s last play. But all I care about is that they still haven’t covered. I’ll take the defending champs getting points at home. THE PICK: RAVENS
CARDINALS (1-1) at SAINTS (2-0)
Bottom line: My crack research staff (see: me) discovered that St. Louis is 7-2 ATS on the road the past two seasons. Dallas is 2-10 ATS at home dating to Nov. 24, 2011. THE PICK: RAMS
PACKERS (1-1) at BENGALS (1-1) Line: Packers by 2½ Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: Green Bay became first team with a 450-yardplus QB (Aaron Rodgers) and 125-yard-plus rusher (James Starks) in the same game last week. Not too shabby. THE PICK: PACKERS
Line: Redskins by 1½ Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: Washington has been outscored by 43 and hasn’t converted a third down (0-for-9) before halftime. Take the more desperate team. THE PICK: REDSKINS
Line: Saints by 7½ Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: The Cards have lost seven straight road games and 17 of their last 20 roadies overall, while the Saints have won — and covered — 15 of their last 20 home games. Still, I’ll take the Cards, who are 6-1-1 against FALCONS (1-1) the spread the last two seasons at DOLPHINS (2-0) as underdogs of eight or fewer Line: Dolphins by 2 points.

Line: Cowboys by 4 Time: 11 a.m.
GIANTS (0-2) at PANTHERS (0-2) Line: Panthers by 1 Time: 11 a.m. Bottom line: We’re all aware of the horrors of beginning an NFL season 0-2: Since the 12-team playoff began in 1990, only 22 of 276 (8 percent) clubs that went winless after Week 2 made the playoffs. Interestingly, the Giants are 0-2 for the first time since 2007 — the season they beat the undefeated Patriots in the Super Bowl. Big Blue — with an NFL-worst -8 turnover margin — has not covered in five straight regular-season games. The trend ends in Carolina as Eli Manning gets on track against Carolina, 4-11 against the spread in its last 15 September games. THE PICK: GIANTS
LIONS (1-1) at REDSKINS (0-2)

Ryan Grigson a lot of credit for making the Trent Richardson deal happen. On the other side, do you think it was a fun week of practice for the 49ers after a 26-point pasting at Seattle? San Fran is 16-6-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last 23 home games. THE PICK: 49ERS
BILLS (1-1) at JETS (1-1) Line: Jets by 2 Time: 2:25 p.m. Bottom line: The only good thing about playing a Thursday night game is the long layoff that follows. Hopefully, Geno Smith and the offense used that time wisely. Smith gets another shot in the division in a clash of AFC
East first-year QBs vs. the Bills and EJ Manuel. I know Rex Ryan’s ‘D’, which has been impressive in the early going, will have a multitude of looks for Manuel. But Buffalo is 5-2 against the spread in its last seven trips to East Rutherford. THE PICK: BILLS
BEARS (2-0) at STEELERS (0-2) Line: Bears by 2½ Time: 6:30 p.m. Bottom line: Big Ben and the Steelers’ offense looks abysmal under coordinator Todd Haley, while I’ve never seen Jay Cutler look better with the Bears. I want to use the “more desperate team” axiom here and pick the Steelers, but I just can’t after
watching their almost unrecognizable play the last two weeks. THE PICK: BEARS MONDAY NIGHT
RAIDERS (1-1) at BRONCOS (2-0) Line: Broncos by 15 Time: 6:40 p.m. Bottom line: Denver took a big hit as LT Ryan Clady was put on IR with season-ending foot surgery. I love the way the Denver offense is clicking, but I think Oakland and its NFL-best nine sacks will find a way to cover. Oakland is 6-1 against the spread in its last seven trips to Denver. THE PICK: RAIDERS
Defensive: Horsemen lead 35-0 at halftime notice. The Horsemen may have a different look, but the championship feel is still the same.
Continued from Page D-1 23 rushing yards on 22 carries. The same dominance was also evident on the other side of the ball as St. Michael’s had one big play after another, the majority of them involving Ortega. He had touchdown runs of 7, 3, 23 and 1 yards, plus had runs of 10 or more yards seven times. Perhaps most telling was the fact that the Horsemen ran their wildcat formation only three times. Ortega scored on two of them. “I think it’s more coach Fernanz trusting Keith and wanting us to get back to a more traditional setup,” Ortega said. “We really don’t run the wildcat all that much anyway.” Dominguez was 6-for-10 passing, connecting on long touchdown throws of 67 yards (Isaiah Dominguez) and 63 yards (Blea). The bomb to Blea was a perfectly thrown ball that traveled more than 35 yards downfield, hitting the receiver in full stride just ahead of Robertson

defensive back J.R. Gonzalez. It was 35-0 at halftime, and St. Michael’s needed only four plays in the second half to get the final two touchdowns. As well as the Horsemen played offensively, the hot topic afterward was the defense. Leyba and Isaiah Dominguez started things off by sacking
Lesperance on Robertson’s first offensive play. “Defense has always been our thing,” Dominguez said. “It’s something we work on all the time, and it’s getting better every game. This was probably our best game so far.” And if that’s indeed the case, the rest of AAA should take
u Leyba’s touchdown run was from 39 yards out in the third quarter. He finished the game with 45 yards on five carries. u St. Michael’s travels down the road to Ivan Head Stadium next week for its latest meeting with Santa Fe High (1-3). The Horsemen have won four straight in the rivalry by an average margin of 46 points, including a 55-0 blowout last year. They’ve won seven of the last eight meetings and eight of the last 10. u Robertson’s top rusher, junior Dominic Lucero, missed Saturday’s game due to injury. u Both St. Michael’s and Robertson have already beaten perennial powerhouse Lovington this season. While that is usually worthy of praise, it is taking on a different tone this season considering the Wildcats are off to an 0-4 start following a 24-9 loss Saturday afternoon at Albuquerque Academy.

Volleyball: Coach rarely calls timeouts Continued from Page D-1 Farmington outside hitter Sarah Long took advantage of that to the tune of 19 kills. Several of them were soft hits aimed at the middle of the court, where no defender took charge, while other played off or over the block. “We have a set defense for that and we just weren’t getting to that spot,” Estrada said. “On the right side, we didn’t protect against the tip very well and we got burned on that as well. We were staying in our normal pattern instead of reading and figuring out what to do. We played reactively.” There were fewer traces of that against the Lady Tigers,
but there were plenty of sightings of Herrera. She hammered out 13 kills for the match, which helped her earn all-tournament honors along with Hannah Hargrove. Estrada said Herrera is looking like the player who led the team with an average of 9.5 kills per match. “This was a great weekend for her,” Estrada said. “She grew a lot. Her outside hitting, and the timing was there. The sets were there, [Herrera and setter Shannon Bates] were communicating. She made a comment to me that they could look at each other and they knew. They knew.” Which is something that Herrera didn’t know last year. Despite the strong statistics, Herrera never felt a strong rap-
port with Tristan Holmes like she does with Bates now. “Last year, I struggled. With my new setter Shannon, when she sets me, we connect,” Herrera said. “Our eyes look at each other, and I know we got this. So I just go up and I have confidence that she can get it to me. And 95 percent of the time she does.” And 95 percent of the time, Estrada won’t call a timeout when his team is struggling, which the Demonettes did in Game 3 against Los Lunas. Of course, they had two-game lead, so as the Lady Tigers built a 14-8 lead, Estrada never considered giving his team a break. “I don’t call timeouts to bail them out, unless I really have
to,” Estrada said. “I want them to figure things out, help themselves out. Unless it gets really drastic, I will call timeout.” The situation never turned drastic, as the Demonettes chipped away to within 16-13, when Hannah Hargrove toed the service line. She served back-to-back aces that started a four-point run to give Santa Fe High a 17-16 lead. It was tight the rest of the way until the Demonettes scored the last three points, including Bates’ dump kill that ended the match. In other gold bracket matches, Pojoaque Valley beat Laguna-Acoma in three games for fifth place, while Belen needed four games to best Las Vegas Robertson for seventh.

is mathematically still alive as the No. 30 seed. He would need to win (possible), have Woods finish last (possible) and make sure Stenson finishes in the 15th place (total long shot). Johnson wasn’t interested in all that math and it wasn’t his field of study at Coastal Carolina, anyway. “They didn’t require math,” he said. All he cares about are the scores, and he’s still in with a chance after making up five shots on the back nine. That was mostly Stenson’s doing.
The Swede got loose with a few shots, and the rain didn’t help. “I can’t really complain that it was any tougher for me than for anybody else,” Stenson said. “When you lose a little bit of momentum … it’s just hard to find your rhythm again when you’re kind of jumping in and out from underneath an umbrella and trying to whack it to get back in underneath again. So it’s a little more difficult, but we still kept it together. Like I said, we’ve still got a four-shot lead.”
Blue Griffins girls aggressive in Tournament of Champions The New Mexican
Saturday evening was a significant event for the Santa Fe Preparatory volleyball team. Whether it turns groundbreaking remains to be seen. The Blue Griffins won the silver bracket of the Tournament of Champions, beating Belen 25-16, 21-25, 25-17, 25-23 in Capital’s Edward A. Ortiz Memorial Gymnasium. It was the second straight Class AAAA team that AA Prep (6-2) beat on the day. It took a 25-17, 18-25, 25-20, 17-25, 15-9 win over Bernalillo in the semifinals for the rest to happen, but Prep head coach Kieran Bhakta saw a spark that he hopes might ignite into something bigger. “This was one of the few times I’ve seen our team not wanting to let balls drop and moving and sacrificing their bodies,” Bhakta said. “There were rallies that, at some points were dead, but somebody would slide across the floor to get a free ball.” That floor-burn-be-damned mentality augmented an MVP performance from junior Desiray Anderson. She had 20 kills and an ace in both matches, while recording two blocks against the Lady Pintos. Joy Maran was on the alltournament team as she had 24 combined kills on the day and recorded five blocks in the championship.
Alex Archuleta had five aces against Moriarty, while Alexa Writh added three. In the third-place match, West Las Vegas defeated Bernalillo 25-17, 16-25, 25-17, 25-13. St. Michael’s beat Hot Springs 25-16, 25-14, 25-15 for fifth place. CAPITAL 3, SANTA FE INDIAN SChOOL 2 The Lady Jaguars won their first match of the season, going the distance to take seventh place in the Tournament of Champions with a 22-25, 25-11, 13-25, 25-16, 15-11 win. Julie Gandara had 16 kills to lead the Lady Jaguars (1-8), while Nathalie Nichols added nine and Sabrina Rodriguez seven. Adriana Ochoa had five aces. ESPAñOLA VALLEy IN SAN DIEGO The Lady Sundevils went 2-3 over the weekend at the Otay Ranch South Bay Invitational in San Diego, reaching the 16-team gold bracket in Saturday’s final round. Head coach Damon Salazar said he was rewarding his team for its efforts by taking the players to a nearby beach. “To make this trip they were giving up the homecoming dance, so it’s just a way to let them have a little fun,” Salazar said. Española lost to the tournament’s top seed, Woodbridge High from Irvine, Calif., in the gold bracket’s opening round, then beat Tri-City Christian School from San Diego before falling to a team from Temecula, Calif., in its final match.
ALAMO NAVAJO 3, DESERT ACADEMy 0 In Magdalena, Amelia Linett had 11 service points and five aces, lifting the Lady Wildcats (6-3) to a 25-14, 25-21, 25-18 victory over the host Lady Cougars. Abby Tiarks chipped in with 10 points, five aces, seven kills and two assists while Tori Heath had a team-high 15 kills. Desert Academy remained in control throughout thanks to reliable serving and mistake-free hitting, said head coach Natalie Passalacqua. The Lady Wildcats travel to To’Hajiilee on Tuesday in a District 1A match. MOSqUERO 3, SANTA FE WALDORF 1 In Mosquero, the visiting Lady Wolves (4-2) started well but ended poorly in a 20-25, 25-21, 25-20, 25-19 loss to the Lady Pirates. Cecelia Barnard had a teamhigh nine kills to go with 16 service points for Waldorf. Keifer Nace had 17 points and a trio of aces, while Sophie Linett had three kills, two aces and 16 points. “We played a great, tough team and did all right,” said Waldorf head coach Josie Adams. “The girls battled all the way through. The other team was just really good.” Defensive specialist Beatrice Lowe, an eighth grader, had no hitting errors and played well out of the back row. Time and again, said Adams, Lowe was there to dig tough shots.
NEW MEXICO SChOOL FOR ThE DEAF 3, COLORADO SChOOL FOR ThE DEAF AND BLIND 0 At NMSD, the host Lady Roadrunners put together their most complete match of the season in a 25-13, 25-15, 25-11 sweep on homecoming weekend. Head coach Amanda Lujan said every NMSD player had at least one ace, led by 10 from Victoria Ortiz. Amberley Luna had nine aces and 16 service points, while Margaret Appa had five aces and eight points in just two games. “We’re really practicing with consistency and it’s paying off,” Lujan said. The Lady Roadrunners (2-2) travel to Austin next week for a national deaf school tournament, then go to Arkansas in two weeks for another national tournament. GIRLS SOCCER ST. MIChAEL’S 10, MORIARTy 0 The Lady Horsemen (5-3) went deep into their bench, especially playing a shorthanded Lady Pintos team that had only nine players. Nique Enloe had a team-high four goals and chipped in an assist, while Cristiana Gabaldon and Monce Camarena added a pair of goals and an assist each. Also with a goal and an assist each were Adriana Camarena and Katie Ish. Isabel Chavez, Azalea Corrales and Eve Crotez each recorded an assist. “It was a tough game for Moriarty,” St. Michael’s head
coach Robyn Serge said. “It was a game for us to in as many players and they racked up the stats. They only had eight or nine players on the field so it was a game for us to get in as many players a possible and they racked up the stats.” SANTA FE PREPARATORy 2, PORTALES 1 (2 OT) In Portales, the visiting Blue Griffins (2-3-1 overall, 2-0 in 2A-AAA) got both their goals from Brigid Quinn, the last coming on a penalty kick after she was tackled in the box on a breakaway in the second sudden-death overtime. The Lady Rams scored in the 10th minute to take an early 1-0 lead but Quinn tied it 15 minutes later with her first goal. The match remained deadlocked until Quinn’s winning shot. Prep survived a close call in the first OT when goalie M.K. English made an acrobatic save on a loose ball in the box. The Griffins return to action Monday afternoon in Albuquerque against Hope Christian.
“Feels good to get that first win because the girls have been working hard the whole time,” said Elkettes head coach Angelo Montoya. “We played really well in this one and it could have been a lot easier if we had just taken care of a few situations on breakaways.” The Lucero goal started with an Adriana Bustamante shot from a few yards away. The Bernalillo keeper never secured the ball and Martinez raced in to feed Lucero with the pass. Pojoaque returns to action Tuesday against district rival Santa Fe Indian School. FOOTBALL

DETROIT — The Detroit Tigers tied the game with an astonishing six-run rally in the ninth Tigers 7 inning, then White Sox 6 beat the Chicago White Sox 7-6 on Saturday night when Omar Infante hit an infield single with the bases loaded in the 12th. Infante’s grounder deflected off the glove of reliever Jacob Petricka (1-1) with one out, and the Tigers spilled onto the field with Comerica Park in a frenzy.

The first pitch came 10 hours, 56 minutes after the Rays’ 5-4, 18-inning win over Baltimore that ended at 2:05 a.m., a game that stretched on for 6:54 — a record time for both teams. Saturday’s game, by comparison, seemed to breeze by in 2:51. INDIANS 4, ASTROS 1 In Cleveland, Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer and the Indians maintained their hold on an AL wild-card spot with a win over Houston. The Indians won for the eighth time in 10 games. They lead Texas by a half-game for the second wild-card slot. Houston, a major leagueworst 51-104, has lost a seasonhigh eight in a row. RANGERS 3, ROYALS 1 In Kansas City, Mo., Matt Garza pitched eight impressive innings for his first victory in six starts and the Texas Rangers kept close in the playoff race, beating the Royals. The Rangers won for only the fifth time in 19 September games. They remained a halfgame behind Cleveland for the second AL wild-card berth. ATHLETICS 9, TWINS 1 In Oakland, the Athletics lowered their magic number to one for clinching their second straight AL West title, topping Minnesota behind the pitching of Jarrod Parker and hitting of Alberto Callaspo. The A’s have won 12 of 15 and lead second-place Texas by 7½ games. Parker (12-7), who may start the A’s postseason opener, gave up one run and four hits in six innings. BLUE JAYS 4, RED SOX 2 In Boston, Clay Buchholz lost for the first time this season, and the AL East champion Red Sox rested a couple of regulars while falling to Mark Buehrle and the Toronto Blue Jays. A day after the Red Sox clinched the division title, they lost for just the sixth time in 21 games. Manager John Farrell didn’t start second baseman Dustin Pedroia and first baseman Mike Napoli, and used starter Ryan Dempster for an inning of relief. ANGELS 6, MARINERS 5 In Anaheim, Calif., Collin Cowgill homered and also stole home as the Los Angeles Angels beat the Seattle Mariners. Rookie Grant Green hit a three-run double to help Jerome Williams (9-10) win his fourth straight start. Ernesto Frieri got three outs for his 36th save in 40 attempts despite giving up Raul Ibanez’s 300th career homer. INTERLEAGUE YANKEES 6, GIANTS 0 In New York, Ivan Nova pitched a six-hitter for his second career shutout, Alfonso Soriano homered and the Yankees beat San Francisco Giants. The Yankees won for the just the third time in eight games, and are three games behind Cleveland for the second AL wild-card spot.

St. Louis maintains 2-game lead in NL Central The Associated Press
MILWAUKEE — Matt Carpenter broke Stan Musial’s team record for doubles by a left-handed batter in a season, Lance Lynn won for the first time since early August and St. Louis beat Cardinals 7 the Brewers 7-2 SatBrewers 2 urday night to maintain a two-game lead in the NL Central. Seeking their first division title since 2009, the Cardinals (91-64) have surged ahead of Pittsburgh (89-66) and Cincinnati (88-67), which fell three back with a 4-2 loss in Pittsburgh. St. Louis lowered its magic number to one for clinching a postseason berth, won for the 12th time in 17 games and improved to 14-4 against the Brewers this year, including 8-1 in Milwaukee. Carpenter’s fifth-inning double was his 54th of the season, one more than Musial’s total in 1953. Lynn (14-10) allowed one run, four hits and four walks in 6 1-3 innings with seven strikeouts. He had been 0-5 with a 5.44 ERA in eight starts since winning at Cincinnati on Aug. 4.
PIRATES 4, REDS 2 In Pittsburgh, A.J. Burnett scattered four hits over seven strong innings to help the Pirates move a game in front of Cincinnati for the top spot in the NL wild-card race. Burnett (9-11) struck out a seasonhigh 12 and Jason Grilli worked the ninth for his 31st save, his first since going to the disabled list with a strained right forearm in July. Russell Martin hit a two-run homer and Jose Tabata added two hits as the Pirates bounced back from a late collapse in a loss on Friday night. Zach Cozart hit his 12th home run of the season for Cincinnati and Ryan Ludwick added an RBI but Homer Bailey (11-11) ended his winning streak at six straight decisions. CUBS 3, BRAVES 1 In Chicago, Dioner Navarro hit a tiebreaking single in a three-run eighth inning, and Cubs beat Atlanta to keep the Braves on the brink of the NL East championship. Atlanta’s magic number remained at one to clinch its first division title since 2005. Second-place Washington was rained out against Miami later Saturday. Starlin Casto singled off Kris Medlen with one out in the eighth, pinch-hitter
Donnie Murphy singled against Scott Downs (2-1) and Anthony Rizzo hit a tying double down the left-field line. Navarro singled in the go-ahead run against David Carpenter, and Nate Schierholtz added a sacrifice fly. Carlos Villanueva (7-8) got three outs for the win and Pedro Strop had the save. DODGERS 4, PADRES 0 In San Diego, Clayton Kershaw struck out 10 in seven dominant innings, Yasiel Puig and A.J. Ellis hit two-run homers and NL West-champion Los Angeles beat the Padres. Kershaw (15-9) lowered his major league-leading ERA to 1.88 and leads the NL with 224 strikeouts. He held San Diego in check on three hits after losing to the Padres in three other starts this year. The left-hander is trying to become the first pitcher to lead the majors in ERA in three consecutive seasons since Atlanta’s Greg Maddux from 1993-95. Ellis homered in the fourth off rookie Burch Smith (1-2). Puig then connected on a shot to center field in the seventh that was estimated at 457 feet. DIAMONDBACKS 7, ROCKIES 2 In Denver, Matt Davidson homered and drove in three runs, Gerardo Parra had
three hits and Arizona beat Colorado. Chris Owings also had three hits for the Diamondbacks, who won for the first time since being eliminated from the NL West race Thursday. Arizona starter Trevor Cahill (8-10) lasted into the sixth despite taking a line drive by DJ LeMahieu off his right leg in the bottom of the first. Charlie Blackmon had three hits for Colorado and Colin McHugh (0-3), still looking for his first career win, allowed six runs and 11 hits in five innings. METS 5, PHILLIES 4, 61/2 INNINGS In Philadelphia, David Wright and Daniel Murphy hit solo home runs and New York beat the Phillies in a game called in the top of the seventh inning because of rain. The game was halted and then called after a wait of 1 hour, 28 minutes. Wright connected for the third consecutive game, and second straight day since returning from a hamstring injury that sidelined him for more than a month. Murphy broke a 1-all tie with a homer in a four-run sixth. His 12th homer of the season tied a career high set in 2009. Juan Lagares chased Phillies starter Tyler Cloyd (2-6) with a two-run triple in the sixth.

N.M. Highlands beats Fort Lewis Emmanuel Lewis passed for 365 yards and three touchdowns, leading the New Mexico Highlands football team to a 31-20 victory over Fort Lewis on Saturday afternoon at Perkins Stadium in Las Vegas. It was the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference opener for both teams, and the home opener for the Cowboys (2-1, 1-0). Lewis also rushed for a teamhigh 40 yards. Receiver Tyler Slavin had four receptions for 147 yards and one touchdown. Michael Harrison and Lajuantae Hicks also had touchdown grabs. NMHU opened the scoring with a 72-yard punt return for a touchdown by Akeelie Mustafa in the first quarter, then took the lead for good when kicker Zach Tapia hit a 24-yard field goal to make it 10-7 late in the second quarter.

Crimson Tide rolls over Colorado State The Associated Press
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — AJ McCarron passed for 258 yards and threw a 30-yard Alabama 31 touchdown Colorado St. 6 to DeAndrew White in the fourth quarter to lift No. 1 Alabama to a 31-6 victory over Colorado State on Saturday night. Kenyan Drake set up one touchdown with a blocked punt returned 15 yards by Dillon Lee and scored on a 3-yard touchdown run for the Crimson Tide (3-0), who led 17-6 heading to the fourth. Alabama managed only one offensive touchdown and no third-down conversions in the first three quarters a week after winning a 49-42 shootout over Texas A&M. Coached by former Tide offensive coordinator Jim McElwain, the Rams (1-3) nursed hopes for a monumental upset into the fourth quarter before allowing two touchdowns. Trey DePriest stripped the ball from quarterback Garrett Grayson and recovered the fumble early in the quarter. NO. 4 OHIO ST. 76, FAMU 0 In Columbus, Ohio, Kenny Guiton again starred in place of Braxton Miller, setting a school record with six touchdown passes — all in the first half — to lead Ohio State over Florida A&M. It was the Buckeyes’ most lopsided win since 1935. Ohio State (4-0) needed a total of four offensive plays and 46 seconds to go up 21-0 in the opening 6 minutes and never looked back. It was an epic mismatch between a team with national-title aspirations and a Football Championship Subdivision member getting a $900,000 guarantee. FAMU (1-3), which suffered its worst loss ever, trailed 48-0 before picking up its initial first down in the second quarter. Guiton completed 24 of 34 passes for 215 yards. His TD passes went to five different receivers. The game was Ohio State’s last tuneup before opening Big Ten play next week against Wisconsin.

Charles Gaines returned the second-half kickoff 93 yards for a touchdown, and recovered a muffed punt to set up Bridgewater’s second TD pass in the second quarter. Bridgewater had 212 yards on 17-of-22 passing, part of Louisville’s 464-yard effort against winless FIU (0-4). NO.8 FLORIDA ST.54, BETHUNE-COOKMAN 6 In Tallahassee, Fla., Florida State and quarterback Jameis Winston defeated FCS opponent Bethune-Cookman despite plenty of sloppy play. The defending ACC champions (3-0) will want to clean up their offense before starting a seven-game stretch against conference foes next week. Winston completed 10 of 19 passes for 148 yards and two touchdowns. Devonta Freeman ran for a game-high 112 yards and a touchdown. Karlos Williams finished with 83 yards rushing and two touchdowns, and James Wilder Jr. added 56 yards and a touchdown. The Wildcats (3-1) scored their lone touchdown off a seven-yard run from quarterback Jackie Wilson with 8:21 left in the third quarter. All three starting FSU receivers had dropped passes in the second quarter, including two for TDs.

It was the highest scoring game for the Cardinals (4-0) since a 73-10 victory over Murray State in 2007. It also matched the school’s fifth-largest margin of victory.

first drive of the third quarter before the Heisman Trophy winner went to the bench. It was a nice bounce-back game for Texas A&M after falling to No. 1 Alabama 49-42 last week. Manziel had 244 yards passing with a touchdown and ran for 102 yards and two more scores. Deshazor Everett returned a fumble 12 yards for a touchdown and Ben Malena ran for 71 yards and two scores. He got things going for A&M with a 3-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Former Texas quarterback Garrett Gilbert threw for 310 yards and a touchdown with an interception for SMU (1-2), which piled up 16 penalties for 111 yards.
NO. 15 MICHIGAN 24, CONNECTICUT 21 In East Hartford, Conn., Fitzgerald Toussaint ran for 120 yards and two touchdowns, Desmond Morgan made a one-handed interception in the fourth quarter that swung the game Michigan’s way and the Wolverines dodged another upset with a victory against Connecticut. A week after Michigan needed a last-second stand to hold off Akron, Brendan Gibbons kicked a 21-yard field goal with 4:36 left to give the Wolverines (4-0) their first lead of the second half. Chandler Whitmer threw two touchdowns and Ty-Meer Brown returned a fumble 34 yards for a score in the third quarter that put UConn (0-3) up 21-7. Devin Gardner turned the ball over three times for Michigan and the Wolverines also muffed a punt inside their 10 that led to a UConn touchdown. Toussaint broke a 35-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, and scored from 12 yards out right after Morgan’s pick with 9:56 left.
Maine. Northwestern improved to 4-0 as it wrapped up its nonconference slate, but this was not the consistent, steady performance coach Pat Fitzgerald was looking for heading into Big Ten play. If not for the interception returns, Maine (3-1) could have been in line for an upset down the stretch. Running back Mike Trumpy and quarterback Kain Colter each had rushing TDs for Northwestern. Marcus Wasilewski was 25-for-40 for 237 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions for Maine, which had a 379 to 373 edge over the Wildcats in total yards. Northwestern had posted better than 500 yards of offense in each of its first two games against California and Syracuse.

total yards, matching the school record they set in their last game, two weeks ago in a 70-13 win over Buffalo. ULM (2-2) suffered its worst defeat since a 73-7 drubbing at Auburn in 2003. NO. 22 NOTRE DAME 17, MICHIGAN ST. 13 In South Bend, Ind., Cam McDaniel scored on a 7-yard run following a questionable pass interference call, one of several penalties that hurt Michigan State, and Notre Dame beat the Spartans for its 10th straight home win. The Fighting Irish (3-1) also took advantage of another questionable pass interference call in the first half that set up a 2-yard touchdown pass from Tommy Rees to TJ Jones and a holding penalty that kept alive a drive that led to a 41-yard field goal by Kyle Brindza. The Spartans (3-1) had 10 penalties for 115 yards by the Big Ten officials. But Michigan State made some costly mistakes of its own, including a trick play after the Spartans gained some momentum. After opening the second half with a field goal, receiver R.J. Shelton threw a pass that was intercepted by Matthias Farley and led to Notre Dame’s go-ahead touchdown. NO. 24 WISCONSIN 41, PURDUE 10 In Madison, Wis., Melvin Gordon ran for three touchdowns, James White added 145 yards rushing and a 70-yard score, and Wisconsin opened Big Ten play with a win over Purdue.

Nose guard Warren Herring had a sack and three tackles, and linebacker Chris Borland had six stops and a pass breakup at the goal line with the game still close in the first half. NO. 25 TEXAS TECH 33, TEXAS ST. 7 In Lubbock, Texas, Backup quarterback Davis Webb threw for two touchdowns and 310 yards to lead Texas Tech over Texas State. Webb threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Eric Ward in the third quarter and a 10-yarder to Bradley Marquez in the fourth after Texas State failed on a fake punt deep in its own territory. Webb finished 19 for 43 and had two interceptions. Texas Tech’s defense got the lone touchdown of the first half when linebacker Will Smith returned a fumble 9 yards. Ryan Bustin added four field goals for the Red Raiders (4-0).

Newsmakers Jack Klugman deserves Emmy tribute, son says LOS ANGELES — The exclusion of Jack Klugman from an Emmy Awards tribute that includes Cory Monteith is an insult to the memory of the late TV veteran and three-time Emmy winner who starred in The Odd Couple and Quincy M.E., Klugman’s son says. “I think it’s criminal,” said Adam Klugman in Jack an interview with The Klugman Associated Press. “My dad was at the inception of television and helped build it in the early days.” Ceremony producers announced this week that five individual salutes would be included on Sunday night’s Emmy show in addition to the traditional “in memoriam” segment that groups together industry members who died in the past year. Besides Monteith, the Glee star who died in July of a heroin and drug overdose, those to be honored include The Sopranos star James Gandolfini; Jean Stapleton of All in the Family; comedian and actor Jonathan Winters; and Family Ties
producer Gary David Goldberg. Monteith, who was 31 when he died, is by far the youngest of the group. All the others are Emmy winners, while he had yet to be nominated in his abbreviated career. Hagman, Durning and Klugman will be included in the group remembrance, an academy spokesman said Friday. The ceremony at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles airs at 6 p.m. MST Sunday on CBS.

Miley!” The 20-year-old Miley emerged onstage in all Cyrus white, wearing a tight corset and high-waisted shorts that revealed some of her backside. Her four-song set opened with the

anthemic “We Can’t Stop.” She followed the colorful performance with “Party In the USA.” But it was her emotional rendition of “Wrecking Ball” that was her set’s highlight. Saturday’s day line-up also featured Jason Derulo, Avril Lavigne, The Wanted, The Band Perry and others.
Writer Carolyn Cassady of Beat generation dies SAN FRANCISCO — A longtime friend of Carolyn Cassady has confirmed the writer, who was the former wife of Beatnik Neal Cassady and lover of Jack Kerouac, has died. She was 90 years old. Estelle Cimino, co-owner of the Beat Museum in San Francisco, said Saturday that Carolyn Cassady died Friday in the United Kingdom. Cimino Carolyn Cassady didn’t know the specific cause of death. Cassady’s proximity to the Beat generation was chronicled in Kerouac’s book On the Road. The Associated Press

Cruise opens up mysteries of Myanmar By Att Sikkema
The Associated Press
MANDALAY, Myanmar — After closing its doors to the West for half a century, Myanmar has reopened, inviting all to come and discover its treasures, ancient palaces of kings long gone, legends and mysteries told in stone. And the world is expected to come. These are the early days, perhaps the best, and with illequipped roads and railways, there is no better way to explore than by river. Public ferries crisscross through glistening green paddies; old teak fishing boats can be rented by the day. And now, there is the luxury riverboat cruise. In late July, the Orcaella made its maiden voyage on a 994-mile journey deep into Myanmar’s interior, almost to the border of India. It is operated by the Orient Express, the group that runs luxury hotels, trains and boats globally. It’s not a handsome ship from the outside. As the cruise’s first 30 travelers board in Mandalay, it seems squat and square and a bit worn out. But once we step over the gangplank and enter the roomy lounge, our impression changes completely. Totally remodeled from the hull up and gracefully furnished, it is a space where all of us immediately felt relaxed. Over the next 12 days, we will tour sights rarely seen by foreign tourists: Villages left back in time, gilded pagodas filled with Buddhist statues, thousands of them long neglected. My cabin is spacious, with hardwood floors, fresh flowers and a walk-in closet. Best of all are the glass sliding doors facing the wide river, where one can lie in bed and watch the world glide by. We travel first for six hours along the mighty Irrawaddy River, more than 400 yards wide. The shores are almost level with the land, the brush low with a few large trees. Every hut or fishing boat we pass generates loud greetings. Groups of children wave and call. Water taxis carry passengers from one riverside village to the next, and huge, heavy boats laden with teak head downstream. When we reach the conflu-
ence with the Chindwin River, we meet our first obstacle. The captain slows our 25-cabin ship to a near-standstill and struggles to navigate around a small whirlpool. The shifting sandbanks make it difficult to read the riverbed. Eventually we pass, continuing north on the Chindwin along the melted waters of the Himalayas. We slice through sandstone cliffs and patches of forest, but this is rare. For long stretches, sometimes days at a time, the view is more monotonous than I would have imagined. The first village of a decent size we come across is Monywa, where the people appear as fascinated by us as we are by them. As we walk down their dusty roads, we must look like clumsy giants. Their own bodies look so delicate, women walking gracefully even when carrying baskets of bricks on their heads. The small, beautiful children stare in wonder. A teenage traveler snaps pictures of a little girl from the village and her 4-yearold older brother, then gives the boy a turn at the camera. Every day, we stop to visit one or more of the many pagodas, old and new. We have seen golden Buddhas towering over us, and a traditional ceremony for young, freshly shaven monks. After a few days, we reach Sittaung, a few miles from the Indian border. It has 35 very solid, large teak houses, all without doors and elevated on stilts. Green rice paddies are on either side. The river is only a few meters away and floods a frequent occurrence. On our final night on the ship, elephant dancers — men in a full-sized pachyderm costume — are brought in from a nearby village. The bejeweled beast appears with its leader and begins a dainty dance that soon becomes more boisterous. We are amazed when it stands up on his front legs, then on his back. As the show wraps up, I stand up to get a better look at the lovely young singer among the musicians. Her mother, seeing my delight, smiles and beckons me to sit with her.

REAL ESTATE By Lisa Flam
Local experts weigh in on market forecast
By Francis Phillips
For The New Mexican
here are many great Realtors in Santa Fe. Some are former investment pros who changed professions to real estate later in their careers. Recently, I reached out to several of them to get their take on recent changes in the bond markets after Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke announced that the Fed would cease buying bonds (mortgage-backed securities and Treasuries) in mid2014, if not sooner. uuu
Santa Fe Real Estate Guide
Georgette Romero, Santa Fe Properties (formerly Smith Barney, Santa Fe, and Paine Webber, Atlanta): “So many investors had turned to bonds for security. With interest rates moving up and consumer sentiment Parade winners Little hydro plant much stronger, investor interest has been turning to real estate and out of the bond market.

Consumer at www.santafe sentiment appears to be newmexican changing. .com/life/home “Interestingly enough and historically speaking, I only see the real estate market becoming more robust since many buyers go into the market after rates start to move up. We are there. We will most likely continue to see spikes down, but it appears that the trend [although sometimes shaky] is up for real estate.” John Rigatti, Sotheby’s International Realty (formerly Lehman Brothers, New York): “The general market sentiment is for slowly rising rates as the Fed pulls back, which may negatively impact housing. However, given the mixed economic numbers being reported, the larger concern may be weak or stagnant GDP growth and its effect on consumer confidence. Nonetheless, interest rates remain near historic lows and consumer confidence is at its highest level in six years.” David Dodge, Sotheby’s International Realty (formerly Merrill Lynch, Santa Fe): “From everything I am reading, interest rates are heading up, and this is a real opportunity to lock in these low rates. And what a great time to be buying property in Santa Fe.” Andy Ault, Keller Williams (formerly BNP Paribas, New York): “Fed statements continue to affirm Bernanke’s cautious leanings toward keeping rates down, and the majority of Fed members are not inclined to a rate hike until 2015 or later. Couple this with financial weakness in Europe, the Mideast and China, and one has a recipe for mortgage rates to fall back toward a 4.25 to 5 percent range through 2013. U.S. home prices continue to be buoyant, and forecasters are calling for 4 to 5 percent annual growth over the next several years. “In the Rocky Mountain corridor from Montana to New Mexico, Santa Fe stands out as a deal: Land prices have plummeted, commercial buildings are significantly off their 2006 highs, and luxury homes are still experiencing price consolidation. Quite simply, opportunities abound and qualified buyers can now enjoy a field day.” September 2013

A permeable driveway pavement in winter. For a contemporary, ‘green’ home, Michael Keenan, an adjunct assistant professor of landscape architecture at the University of Minnesota, might choose light-colored, permeable pavers, which are more environmentally conscious by letting water absorb back into the earth under the driveway rather than running off and collecting debris along the way to bodies of water. AP/NELCO LANDSCAPING
by looking at the home’s roof, siding or trim color. “I don’t think you can make a value judgment on which one is the best,” Keenan said of driveway
designs. “It’s got to fit the building that you’re paving next to.” He might recommend, for example, a traditional red-brick driveway to go with a light blue
Colonial home. For a contemporary, environmentally “green” home, he might choose lightcolored, permeable pavers — a more environmentally sound choice because they let water back through to the earth under the driveway, rather than forcing it to run off and collect debris on the way to bodies of water. Back in Pasadena, the concrete-and-brick option that Ulick chose is popular among the many Craftsman and other historical homes in the area, said Mark Peters, the chief estimator for Boston Brick & Stone, which helped create Ulick’s driveway. “It’s a very rich feel and it’s understated,” Peters said. Since he got his driveway in 2009, Ulick said, he has received many compliments, and people sometimes stop to ask if his driveway is the original. “That’s a bigger compliment,” he said, “that it looks like it’s been done years and years and years ago.”
The message is clear from the Fed: The bond buyback program will end — although just this week the Fed announced that it did not see the economy improving to the extent that the program should be terminated very soon. I would still advise that you should seize the moment and invest in real estate now with the current low rates. The time has passed for rates in the 3’s so don’t look back. Look ahead — rates near the 5’s are coming, so grab the 4’s while you can. Historically low real estate prices combined with close-to-the-bottom interest rates are an incredible combination for buyers of investment properties and second homes, and move-up buyers for primary homes. Let me say it again: Now is the time!

he driveway that came with the 1921 Craftsman-style house that David Ulick bought five years ago was the original concrete one, marred by cracks and with tree roots starting to break through. “I didn’t like the driveway,” said Ulick of Pasadena, Calif. “I wanted something a little bit nicer.” He looked through books and drove through the Craftsmanrich neighborhoods of Pasadena to get ideas before deciding on a concrete drive with an antique finish, accented with reclaimed red bricks from the 1920s. “I wanted this to look like the original driveway, an original, nice driveway, and using used bricks gives it a nice old-fashioned look,” Ulick said. “It really makes it a grand entrance for the house,” he added, noting the brick walkway up one side. “I figured I’d treat the Craftsman the way it deserves to be treated, and maintain its design style and heritage.” While a driveway may still be a utilitarian afterthought for many homeowners, others like Ulick are adding some serious curb appeal to their homes by moving beyond basic options like grass or gravel, asphalt or concrete. “The driveway is commonly overlooked,” conceded Michael Keenan, an adjunct assistant professor of landscape architecture at the University of Minnesota. “Driveways are not cheap necessarily, but they are completely functional and necessary if you have a car and a garage.” Doing up the driveway, Keenan said, is a chance to “celebrate the function because it is a piece of the property you do use every day.” The design options have grown in the last decade or so, he said, as pavers — made from precast concrete, clay and natural stone like granite — are being turned out in a range of colors and sizes. Some have rounded edges for an older look; others are mottled to add color variation to the driveway. Installing a customized driveway is a way to put your own stamp on the hardscape and set your house apart from the rest. Depending on the neighborhood, the materials and the quality of the craftsmanship, Keenan said, a driveway also could increase a home’s resale value. “It does become a point of distinction,” he said. “It is something people notice. It is elegant.” The least expensive paved driveways are made of asphalt, which costs about $12 to $15 a square foot, and concrete, costing about $14 to $18 a square foot, Keenan said. Though concrete is more resilient and lasts longer, both materials will crack over time, he said. Pavers, which start at about $20 to $25 a square foot, should last a lifetime, Keenan said. “The key is the fact that the pavement acts as flexible fabric and it can move with the earth, and isn’t a rigid system and isn’t prone to cracking,” he said. Pavers can be used to make traditional patterns like basketweave or herringbone, or be fashioned into a custom look. For a less traditional look, use a paver that comes in three or four sizes and lay them out at random, Keenan said. Or get a custom design without breaking the bank by using concrete pavers accented with more expensive natural stone pavers. Keenan is also the co-founder and design director of reGEN Land Design in Minneapolis. He works with homeowners to find the best driveway for their home. People are most concerned with the color, which might be chosen

Horoscope HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Sept. 22, 2013: This year you will be practical at times and totally frivolous at others. You also will express your more romantic, creative side. Some of you might take up a new hobby involving the arts, while others will express their caring in new ways. If you are single, you could meet someone through a friend, or possibly through work.

am talking today with Steve Kopperud, a lobbyist in Washington. I learned about Steve and his organization from a news story reporting that he had successfully lobbied the federal government to remove a “Meatless Monday” sign from above a veggie food station in the cafeteria of a federal office building. Steve had argued that the sign was an implicit insult to the American meat-production industry. Me: I am calling to present you with an award from The Washington Post Magazine. There’s no money attached, but I’m sure the prestige alone will be a valuable asset. The first annual Washington Post Magazine George Orwell Gene Untruth in Labeling Award is hereby Weingarten presented to Steve Kopperud of the The Washington “Farm Animal Welfare Coalition” for Post having the most audaciously misleading name of any organization in Washington. Congratulations, Steve. Steve: Thank you. Me: You represent factory farmers. You have publicly said that your greatest enemy is the animal rights lobby! Steve: Define “factory farmer.” A spirited back and forth ensues in which Steve contends that “factory farming” is a pejorative term favored by animal rights activists, whom he does concede are his greatest enemies. We agree to use “large-scale animal farmer.” Me: Look, we both know why your organization is named what it is, and it is not because you are primarily concerned with animal welfare. It is because a more factual name, such as “Torturers and Murderers of Animals Coalition,” wouldn’t raise as much money. Steve: That would be untruthful. Me: Despite stiff opposition from the appalled masses, you support the slaughter of horses for food. Steve: The notion of horse slaughter is a remedy for 200,000 abandoned horses in the United States. Me: You opposed a measure that would have required poultry sold as “organic” to be raised in a manner that would allow chickens to be outside. Steve: “Organic” just means the absence of artificial additives to feed. You can do that without having to incur greater expenses. Besides, oftentimes if you give a chicken an opportunity to go outside, it won’t. Me: You have opposed a ban on physically constrictive cages for chickens and gestation crates for sows, which essentially immobilize these animals for much of their lives and are considered the two cruelest parts of large-scale animal farming. Steve: There are welfare aspects to those systems. For example, there are negative consequences to allowing sows to be with piglets immediately after birth. They can roll over and kill them or eat them. Me: You have opposed regulations that would require farmers to administer painkillers before animals are dehorned, de-beaked or castrated. Steve: If done correctly, pain and discomfort are minimized. Keep in mind the cost of doing anything more with an animal increases the cost to the processor, which increases the cost to the retailer, which increases the cost to the consumer. We need to use systems to allow farming in the most efficient way while still maintaining animal welfare. Me: You don’t concede that “animal welfare” isn’t the prime concern of your organization and a misleading term for your group? Steve: No more than “animal rights” is a misleading term for those groups. If animals are all raised free-range, with no barns, just shelter when they want, they’d have problems with disease, weather, predation and human mischief. We argue we are preventing these things. Me: You have an enormous amount of what we Jewish people call “chutzpah.” Steve: I’d call it “honesty.” Me: Naturally!
