Squier blasted over ‘hunger’ gaffe Human Services secretary tells task force in an email there’s no sign state’s kids are going hungry

Sidonie Squier

By Steve Terrell and Chris Quintana The New Mexican

State Human Services Secretary Sidonie Squier landed in a new controversy Wednesday after stating in an email to other state officials that “there has never been and is not now any significant evidence of hunger in New Mexico.”

Her statement, first reported by KOAT television news, flies in the face of a report issued in June that said New Mexico has the highest rate of food insecurity for children in the nation. Squier’s comment drew immediate criticism as well as expressions of disbelief from people dealing with hunger issues, and

she did some serious backpedaling. Squier issued a statement through a spokesman that said her email had been “poorly worded.” The gaffe isn’t the first public dust-up for Squier, who has been Human Services secretary since the outset of Gov. Susana Martinez’s term. She became

ou might see some unusual automobiles around town this weekend — from vintage Rolls-Royces to new German sports cars. They’re here for the fourth annual Santa Fe Concorso — a beauty pageant for 120 cars, plus a handful of rare motorcycles, bicycles and tractors. Friday’s VIP gala at the Santa Fe Municipal Airport, where a few vintage airplanes also will be on view, is already sold out. But you can still buy tickets to Sunday’s show of vehicles at Las Campanas. A portion of the proceeds go to youth charities in Northern New Mexico. You can also see 100 of the vehicles for free as they caravan through the city on Saturday morning. They’re scheduled to reach Delgado Street and Canyon Road at about 9:30 a.m., and then to Camino del Monte Sol and on to Old Santa Fe Trail on their way to Galisteo.

New Mexico is spending more on early-childhood programs in an effort to close the “opportunity gap” for those in poverty, but the two biggest programs are not producing better academic outcomes. That is a major finding of a new 75-page report presented Wednesday to the Legislative Finance Committee on student achievement in the state. Although research shows that “early reading proficiency is a strong predictor of future educational and employment success,” the report says in New Mexico, “one quarter of children entering kindergarten are unable to read one letter, and over 80 percent of children from lowincome families are behind on the first day of school.”

Amazon unveils Kindle Fire HDX New tablets come with help from live customer service reps By Ryan Nakashima The Associated Press

SEATTLE — Amazon is refreshing its lineup of tablet computers with new devices called Kindle Fire HDX, which are significantly faster and lighter than the previous generation. The 7-inch and 8.9-inch versions also have sharper, more colorful displays than older models, and both have more pixels per inch than the latest iPad. To help those who are unfamiliar with tablets, the new Kindles come with a feature called “Mayday,” which allows users to summon a live customer service representative in a tiny video window. The helpers can explain new features or troubleshoot problems while guiding users with on-screen hand scribbles. They can even take control of the device from afar. CEO Jeff Bezos introduced the feature to reporters Tuesday, saying it is “completely unique” and takes advantage of Amazon’s massive cloud computing and customer service infrastructure. It also builds on Inc.’s reputation for excellent customer service. “You shouldn’t have to be afraid of your device,” Bezos said. While the new Kindles are upgraded in several ways, Amazon also cut the price on what will be its

entry-level 7-inch tablet, the Kindle Fire HD with 8 gigabytes of memory, to $139. The base HD model previously cost $199, but had 16 gigabytes of memory. The price makes the tablet just $20 more than Amazon’s latest dedicated e-reader, the Kindle Paperwhite. The Kindle Fire HD is sheathed in a new magnesium alloy body like the HDX models, but has the same screen resolution and processing power of the older model. However, it drops the front-facing camera and microphone found in last year’s HD. The Kindle HDX models come with Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor. Amazon said they are three times faster than the older Kindle Fire line. For graphics functions, the HDX models are four times faster than before. Amazon also unveiled more features that incorporate data from its IMDb movie database business. With the newer tablets, users who turn on the “X-ray” feature can see a small window that lists the name of a song that is playing in some TV shows and movies. One tap brings up the option to buy the song. Users can also look for all music in a show and zip to the exact spot where a particular song is playing. People who have set up Amazon’s video player as an app on their Internet-connected TVs or through game consoles can also follow along in real time on their tablets, getting information on actors and trivia related to the shows on the big screen. Music lovers can see song lyrics when they play songs purchased from Amazon. Amazon also unveiled new “origami covers”

at the orbiting outpost. Live coverage provided by NASA TV showed the launch went off as scheduled shortly before 1 a.m. Moscow time on Thursday. Less than 10 minutes into the flight, a NASA commentator said the Soyuz had reached orbit after an “uneventful and successful” launch from the cosmodrome, which Russia leases in Kazakhstan. During a spacewalk in November, the two Russians will have the honor of taking the Olympic torch into open space as part of the relay of the Olympic flame ahead of the Winter Games being held in Sochi in February. The torch will not be lit, however, because of safety concerns and will only arrive at the station in November with the next crew.

UNITED NATIONS — Iran’s new president said Wednesday his country is ready to negotiate and has “nothing to hide” as world powers prepare to revive stalled talks over Tehran’s disputed nuclear activities.

USPS wants to raise the stamp prices WASHINGTON — Facing a “precarious financial condition” as fewer customers use its services, the United States Postal Service proposed another round of rate increases Wednesday to go into effect in January — its largest price increase since 2002. The plan — which would raise the cost of first-class stamps for one-ounce letters to 49 cents from 46 cents, among other changes — is intended to generate an additional $2 billion in annual revenue for the Postal Service. The agency expects to lose about $6 billion in the current fiscal year. Postage rates jumped 1 cent in January 2012 and again in January 2013, but those changes were tied to increases in the Consumer Price Index, according to the Postal Service. The proposed 3-cent increase was the result of “extraordinary circumstances.” In a letter sent to customers, Chairman Mickey D. Barnett said the Postal Service put together a fiveyear plan earlier this year to close a $20 billion budget gap and reduce its debt, but “the uncertain path toward enactment of postal reform legislation” had necessitated its rate adjustments. “Of the options currently available to the Postal Service to align costs and revenues, increasing postage prices is a last resort that reflects extreme financial challenges,” Barnett wrote. The Postal Service has already cut back 22,000 delivery routes, laid off 203,000 workers and trimmed its annual operating costs by $16 billion since 2006 in an attempt to reach profitability, he added. Members of Congress from both parties immediately reacted to the announcement with calls for comprehensive legislative reform. Bills were introduced in the Senate and the House this summer to address the Postal Service’s financial condition and are still in committee. “While some rate increases may be necessary, the long-term key to USPS’s future is addressing its costly, inefficient delivery network,” Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., who introduced a bill to the House, said in a statement. Failure to address those costs will force “a string of rate increases much larger than the ones today that will inevitably trigger an irrecoverable death spiral for the agency.” Among the most controversial reforms suggested has been the elimination of Saturday delivery, which would save about $2 billion a year. A proposal by the Postal Service was abandoned in April after Congress passed a spending bill that prohibited cutting back to five-day service.

The House-passed bill provides $636 million for the program, but includes reductions elsewhere to avoid raising the deficit. To avoid a partial government shutdown, a single, agreed-upon version must be approved by Congress and signed by Obama by Tuesday. Officials pointed out that there is still time for the Senate to restore the funds for the health care law — and for the House to seek a more modest overhaul concession, perhaps a one-year delay in the requirement for individuals to purchase coverage or the repeal of a tax on medical devices that many Democrats oppose. In a further complication, Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew told Congress that the Treasury’s ability to borrow funds will be exhausted on Oct. 17, and legislation is needed to renew its authority if the government is to avoid a first-ever default. The House is expected to approve a measure later this week allowing Treasury to borrow freely for another year, although that legislation, too, will include a provision to carry out the Republican campaign against Obamacare.

The bipartisan group unveiled the bill on the eve of a Senate hearing with the nation’s top intelligence officials, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Army Gen. Keith Alexander, the director of the NSA, in hopes of jumpstarting the debate over the programs. “Americans with no link to terrorism or espionage should not have to worry that the NSA is vacuuming up their private information,” Udall said. The bill would change current law to prohibit the bulk collection of Americans’ phone records and their communications data. The government could still obtain records of anyone suspected of terrorism or espionage and of an individual in contact with a suspected terrorist or spy. Paul said he didn’t understand

FBI: Navy Yard gunman believed he was under attack by radio waves By Eric Tucker

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Washington Navy Yard gunman Aaron Alexis left a note saying he was driven to kill by months of bombardment with extremely low-frequency radio waves, the FBI said Wednesday in a disclosure that explains the phrase he etched on his shotgun: “My ELF Weapon!” Alexis did not target particular individuals during the Sept. 16 attack in which he killed 12 people, and there is no indication the shooting stemmed from any workplace dispute, said Valerie Parlave, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Washington field office. Instead, authorities said, his behavior in the weeks before the shooting and records recovered from his hotel room, backpack and other belongings reveal a man increasingly in the throes of paranoia and delusions. “Ultra-low frequency attack is what I’ve been subject to for the last 3 months, and to be perfectly honest that is what has driven me to this,” read an electronic document agents recovered after the shooting.

The attack came one month after Alexis had complained to police in Rhode Island that people were talking Aaron Alexis to him through the walls and ceilings of his hotel room and sending microwave vibrations into his body to deprive him of sleep. On his shotgun, he had scrawled “My ELF Weapon!” — an apparent reference to extremely low-frequency waves — along with “End to the Torment!” “Not what yall say” and “Better off this way,” the FBI said. Alexis, a 34-year-old former Navy reservist and computer technician for a government contractor, used a valid badge to get into the Navy Yard and opened fire inside a building

with the Remington shotgun, which he had legally purchased in Virginia two days earlier. He also used a 9 mm handgun that he took from a security guard, a weapon found near Alexis’ body. He was killed in the building by a U.S. Park Police officer following a rampage and shootout with police that the FBI said lasted more than an hour. “There are indicators that Alexis was prepared to die during the attack and that he accepted death as the inevitable consequence of his actions,” Parlave said. Surveillance video released by the FBI on Wednesday shows Alexis pulling his rental car into a garage, walking into the building with a bag, skulking down a corridor with a shotgun, ducking and crouching, and walking briskly down a flight of stairs. The video does not show him actually shooting anyone.

how a “warrant that has 10 million unnamed people, all customers of Verizon” is consistent with the Constitution. The legislation also would establish an independent, constitutional advocate to argue against the government in the secret Foreign Surveillance Intelligence Court and require the attorney general to declassify court opinions that address significant interpretations of the Constitution or current law. Blumenthal, who served as Connecticut’s attorney general, said secret courts were one of the reasons the colonists rebelled against the British government. President Barack Obama has said he might be open to setting up public advocates who could oppose government lawyers at Foreign Surveillance Intelligence Court proceedings. But the administration continues to argue that the NSA programs are crucial tools in combatting terrorism.

Putin defends Greenpeace crew detention MOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday that Greenpeace activists apprehended after trying to scale an offshore oil platform aren’t pirates, but he defended their detention by Coast Guard officers. Two members of the group were detained Sept. 18 in their attempt to scale an Arctic platform. The Coast Guard seized Greenpeace’s ship the next day and towed it with 30 activists aboard, to Murmansk, where they are being questioned by investigators considering piracy charges. The activists, from 19 countries, including Russia, could face 10 to 15 years in prison if convicted of piracy. Their ship, Arctic Sunrise, sails under the Dutch flag.

Nuke facility price jumps to $11.6B Syrian rebel groups Tennessee uranium plant draws criticism

Now, the pro- questions that have troubled cessing facility would be among the Energy Department’s the largest investments in the nuclear weapons complex

since the end of the Cold War: How long will the Pentagon need a stockpile of nuclear weapons, and how can the massive industrial network needed to maintain the bombs be kept going at an affordable level? The Y-12 plant is the only U.S. facility that melts, casts and machines bomb-grade uranium. About 7,000 people work there. The facilities, massive brick structures the size of football fields, were built 70 years ago during World War II. The Energy Department says they are “genuinely dilapidated.” Similar problems with aged facilities exist at the Pantex nuclear weapons facility in Texas, Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and the Savannah River Site in South Carolina. But Peter Stockton, lead author of the new report and a former Energy Department special investigator, disputes the need to replace so many

uranium cores, known as secondaries. The Energy Department delayed its plans for a new plutonium facility in New Mexico after acknowledging that it had overestimated the number of plutonium triggers it would need for weapons, he noted. The Energy Department has failed to account for reductions in the size of the U.S. weapons stockpile and has underestimated the resiliency of the weapons parts, Stockton said. “They can’t say how many secondaries we will need,” he said. President Barack Obama signed an agreement with Russia to cut each side’s weapons stockpile to 1,550 by 2018, down from about 6,000 weapons about a decade ago. Stockton said the uranium work could be done more cheaply at existing facilities at Y-12 or at Pantex, where nuclear weapons are disassembled and repaired.

‘I’m broken; I’ve lost my family’ Quake survivors in Pakistan struggle for food and shelter as death toll rises to 285

DALBADI, Pakistan — Survivors built makeshift shelters with sticks and bed sheets Wednesday, a day after their mud houses were flattened in an earthquake that killed 285 people in southwestern Pakistan and pushed a new island up out of the Arabian Sea. While waiting for help to reach remote villages, hungry people dug through the rubble to find food. And the country’s poorest province struggled with a dearth of medical supplies, hospitals and other aid. The quake flattened wide swathes of Awaran district, where it was centered, leaving much of the population homeless. Almost all of the 300 mud-brick homes in the village of Dalbadi were destroyed. Noor Ahmad said he was working when the quake struck and rushed home to find his house leveled and his wife and son dead. “I’m broken,” he said. “I have lost my family.” At least 373 people were also injured, according to a statement from the National Disaster Management Authority, which gave the latest death toll. Doctors in the village treated some of the injured, but due to a scarcity of medicine and staff, they were mostly seen comforting residents. The remoteness of the area and the lack of infrastructure hampered relief efforts. Awaran district is one of the poorest in the country’s most impoverished province. Just getting to victims was challenging in a region with almost no roads where many people use four-wheel-drive vehicles and camels to traverse the rough terrain.


“We need more tents, more medicine and more food,” said a spokesman for the provincial government, Jan Mohammad Bulaidi. Baluchistan is Pakistan’s largest province but also the least populated. Medical facilities are few and often poorly stocked with supplies and qualified personnel. Awaran district has about 300,000 residents spread out over 11,197 square miles. The local economy consists mostly of smuggling fuel from Iran or harvesting dates. The area where the quake struck is at the center of an insurgency that Baluch separatists have been waging against the Pakistani government for years. The separatists regularly attack Pakistani troops and symbols of the state, such as infrastructure projects. It’s also prone to earthquakes. Tuesday’s shaking was so violent it drove up mud and earth from the sea floor to create a new island off the Pakistani coast. A Pakistani Navy team reached the island by midday Wednesday. Navy geologist Mohammed Danish told the country’s Geo Television that the mass was a little wider than a tennis court and slightly

shorter than a football field. The director of the National Seismic Monitoring Center confirmed that the mass was created by the quake and said scientists were trying to determine how it happened. Zahid Rafi said such masses are sometimes created by the movement of gases locked in the earth that push mud up to the surface. “That big shock beneath the earth causes a lot of disturbance,” he said. He said these types of islands can remain for a long time or eventually subside back into the ocean, depending on their makeup. He warned residents not to visit the island because it was emitting dangerous gases. But dozens of people went anyway, including the deputy commissioner of Gwadar district, Tufail Baloch. Water bubbled along the edges of the island. The land was stable but the air smelled of gas that caught fire when people lit cigarettes, Baloch said. Dead fish floated on the water’s surface while local residents visited the island and took stones as souvenirs, he added.

Kenyans want answers in deadly mall attack Death toll expected to rise as forensics experts tackle rubble By Nicholas Soi and Robyn Dixon Los Angeles Times

NAIROBI, Kenya — Forensic experts sifted through the rubble at Nairobi’s Westgate shopping mall Wednesday as many Kenyans demanded to know how 10 to 15 gunmen managed to hold off government security forces for more than three days. More than 70 people, including five gunmen, were killed in the siege. The death toll was expected to rise, as forensic experts from the United States, Britain, Israel, Canada and Germany helped Kenyan police search the mall. Kenya Red Cross officials said 71 people remained missing. Meanwhile, authorities had not confirmed how many of the gunmen were unaccounted for by late Wednesday. The U.S. ambassador to Kenya, Robert Godec, said the United States would help Kenyan investigators bring the instigators of the attack and siege to justice. The al-Qaida-linked Somali militant group al-Shabab has claimed responsibility for the assault, which was launched Saturday. “The United States has provided technical support and equipment to assist Kenyan security forces and medical responders,” Godec said in a statement. “At the request of the Kenyan government, we will provide additional assistance in

the coming days to investigate this attack and to bring its organizers and perpetrators to justice. We will continue to work together with Kenya to stop the scourge of terrorism.” Kenyan Interior Minister Joseph Ole Lenku said forensic experts were carrying out DNA, fingerprint and ballistics analysis at the mall. Engineers were also examining the structure to determine what caused three floors to collapse Monday. Some government officials blamed a fire they said was set by the militants, although Kenyan security forces set off a series of huge explosions to gain access. Many Kenyans called on the government to provide answers. A list of 85 questions, headed “We the People,” was circulating on the Web, demanding to know how many hostages had died in the siege, what caused the floors to collapse and whether any of the assailants had escaped disguised as hostages. Lenku offered few answers at a news briefing. He repeated that authorities believed an “insignificant” number of civilian bodies remained under the rubble and urged Kenyans to be patient and wait for the results of the forensic investigations, which will take at least a week. Eleven suspects were arrested at the airport during the siege, according to Kenyan security officials. In addition, officials said 10 to 15 gunmen carried out the attack and that five of them were killed, leaving as many as 10 unaccounted for.

abandon coalition, form Islamic alliance Organization tied to al-Qaida leads

By Liz Sly

The Washington Post

BEIRUT — American hopes of winning more influence over Syria’s fractious rebel movement faded Wednesday after 11 of the biggest armed factions repudiated the Westernbacked opposition coalition and announced the formation of a new alliance dedicated to creating an Islamic state. The al-Qaida-affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra, designated a terrorist organization by the United States, is the lead signatory of the new group, which will further complicate fledgling U.S. efforts to provide lethal aid to “moderate” rebels fighting to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Others include the Tawheed Brigade, the biggest Free Syrian Army unit in the northern city of Aleppo; Liwa al-Islam, the largest rebel group in the capital, Damascus; and Ahrar al-Sham, the most successful nationwide franchise of mostly Syrian Salafist fighters. Collectively, the new front, which does not yet have a formal name but has been dubbed by its members the “Islamist Alliance,” claims to represent 75 percent of the rebels fighting to topple Assad. Gen. Salim Idriss, the head of the moderate Supreme Military Council and the chief conduit for U.S. aid to the rebels, cut short a visit to Paris after the announcement of the alliance overnight Tuesday and will head to Syria on Thursday to attempt to persuade the factions to reconsider, according to the council’s spokesman, Louay alMokdad. The new alliance stressed that it was not abandoning Idriss’ council, only the exiled political opposition coalition, which, it said in a statement, “does not represent us.” The creation of the bloc nonetheless leaves Idriss’ council directly responsible for just a handful of relatively small rebel units, calling into question the utility of extending aid to “moderate” rebel units, according to Charles Lister of the Londonbased defense consultancy IHS Janes. If the development holds, he said, “it will likely prove the most significant turning point in the evolution of Syria’s anti-government insurgency to date.”

“The scope for Western influence over the Syrian opposition has now been diminished considerably,” he added. Mokdad acknowledged that by aligning themselves with Jabhat al-Nusra, the other rebel factions could jeopardize hopes of receiving outside military help, just as the Obama administration says it is starting to step up its support after more than a year of hesitation. But, he said, the United States and its allies are to blame, for failing repeatedly to deliver on promises to provide assistance as the death toll in Syria, now well over 100,000, steadily mounted. U.S. comment was not immediately available. Idriss called some of the rebel leaders on Wednesday, Mokdad said, “and they told us they signed this because they lost all hope in the international community.” “They said: ‘We are really tired, Bashar al-Assad is killing us, all the West is betraying us, and they want to negotiate with the regime over our blood.’ ” Abu Hassan, a spokesman for the Tawheed Brigade in Aleppo, echoed those sentiments, citing rebel disappointment with the Obama administration’s failure to go ahead with threatened airstrikes to punish Assad for using chemical weapons in the suburbs of Damascus last month, as well as its decision to strike a deal with Russia over ways to negotiate a solution. “Jabhat al-Nusra is a Syrian military formation that fought the regime and played an active role in liberating many locations,” he said. “So we don’t care about the stand of those who don’t care about our interests.” The statement issued by the rebel groups and read on video by a Tawheed commander attributed their decision mostly to dissatisfaction with the Syrian Opposition Coalition, made up of exiled politicians who have struggled to win support among Syrians in the country even as they have courted the international community. But the Islamist alliance’s creation also coincides with growing concerns among mainstream rebels about the rapid ascent of the other main al-Qaida affiliate, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which expanded into Syria from Iraq earlier this year and has recently taken up arms against other rebel factions to extend its control over rebel territory.

Everything’s original, except for the rubber pedals that have replaced the original wood or brass ones. “Other than the non-original pedals that someone put on it, I’ve done absolutely nothing to it,” Doscher said. “I haven’t even really cleaned it all that much because there are still flecks of the original paint on it. I’m afraid even cleaning it, I’ll scrub off some of that.” Dennis and Beverly Little began planning the Concorso as a charity event in 2008. But the recession that began that year and hung on through 2009 meant they were not able to start until 2010, when Pojoaque Pueblo offered the use of its La Mesita Ranch in the Nambé Valley. The show outgrew the ranch after 2011, so in 2012 it was moved to Las Campanas, west of Santa Fe. It has continued to grow each year, with the 2013 Consorso the biggest yet. Beverly Little said the Santa Fe Concorso is one of four luxury car shows around the country that The History Channel is covering this year.

Hunger: Legislator calls for resignation Continued from Page A-1 something of a lightning rod for the administration during the past several months after a shake-up of the state’s mental-health system riled service providers, clients and legislators. A Democratic legislative leader on Wednesday told The Associated Press that Squier should resign from the Republican governor’s administration. Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez of Belen said the secretary’s comments in her email to members of a Hunger Task Force is an example Portion of New Mexico’s 512,460 of Squier’s “utter lack of understandchildren who sufing of what her job requires and the fer from hunger, people she serves.” according to a Ralph Arellanes, president of the recent report by New Mexico chapter of the League Feeding America. of United Latin American Citizens, said in an email to various media outlets that Squier “is out of touch with the everyday realities of a huge Portion of state’s segment of our New Mexico populaoverall population.” tion that is foodNearly 31 percent of the state’s insecure. 512,460 children suffer from hunger, while more than 20 percent of the state’s overall population is considered food-insecure, according to a Portion of state’s recent report by Feeding America, population that a hunger relief charity. The report participated in was based on 2009-11 data from the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics and the food stamp program in June. the Consumer Population Survey. The Human Services Department is the state agency in charge of the federal food stamp program and the emergency food assistance program. A monthly statistical report prepared by the department indicated that more than 21 percent of the state’s population participated in the food stamp program in June of this year, the most recent month for which data is available. Sherry Hooper, executive director of The Food Depot, Northern New Mexico’s food bank, said there definitely is a hunger problem here. She said New Mexico’s problem doesn’t manifest itself in the same way it does in struggling Third World countries, which can cause some people to assume there isn’t a problem. “It’s in families struggling to put food on the table every night,” Hooper said. “And it’s parents skipping meals for their children.” Squier’s boss continues to support her and sees no need for her to resign, governor’s spokesman Enrique Knell said. “The governor agrees that Secretary Squier’s email was worded very poorly and inarticulately,” Knell said. “Of course there are children who are hungry in New Mexico. The governor knows that, and Secretary Squier shares her opinion that there is no excuse for a child in New Mexico to ever be hungry.” Squier said in her written statement after the news report that “I agree that there are hungry children in New Mexico, and none of them should go without access to food or be malnourished. My e-mail was poorly worded, and I share Gov. Martinez’s goals of ensuring that every child has access to healthy meals. Anti-hunger measures must take nutrition into account to truly be effective against child hunger in our state.” The Associated Press reported that Squier had been commenting on a draft report by the Hunger Task Force when she wrote in her email, “Since there has never been and is not now any significant evidence of hunger in New Mexico, I would offer that the focus of the report should be on getting proper nutrition for children (and adults). The idea — which is the easy way out — that we should expand every government food program in existence is not productive, especially if the issue is nutrition and not hunger.” Knell said the governor organized the task force to “address gaps in our food services” and provide assistance to more New Mexicans. Referring to Sanchez’s call for the secretary’s resignation, Knell said “it’s really hard to take him seriously” because the Democratic-controlled Legislature failed initially in 2011 to provide state money to supplement federal food stamp benefits for elderly and disabled New Mexicans. Lawmakers later approved funding in a special session at the governor’s request. Squier this summer came under a firestorm of criticism over an outside audit of 15 behavioral health providers in the state’s Medicaid program. Squier said the audit showed credible evidence of fraud, and she turned over the information to the state attorney general. This resulted in Medicaid funds being completely frozen for 14 of the 15 providers under investigation. The providers’ operations were taken over by Arizona firms who had been lined up before the audit was complete. The secretary and other administration officials argued that they had no choice but to freeze the funds, though critics have argued it could have been handled differently to prevent disruption of services. Squier herself became the center of the controversy in early July after she abruptly stormed out of a hearing at which legislators were grilling her about the behavioral health audit. A spokesman for Squier called certain legislators “extremely condescending and rude,” while legislators said the same of Squier. The Associated Press contributed to this report.




Boost: CYFD officials criticize report on school-readiness efforts Continued from Page A-1 The report suggests the state integrate its publicly funded early-childhood initiatives — including Head Start, the Children, Youth and Families Department’s child care programs and the pre-K classes in New Mexico public schools — and apply the same standards to all. In fiscal year 2012, these programs spent about $100 million to serve 13,000 4-year-olds, or more than 60 percent of all low-income children. Since then, the Legislature has increased funding by 44 percent, the report says. Some CYFD officials criticized the report, pointing out that the department’s child care component is not

designed to prepare students for kindergarten, but to offer services that will allow parents — often lowincome — the chance to keep working. The report acknowledges there has been confusion over whether the CYFD programs should emphasize welfare support or school readiness. Yolanda Berumen-Deines, Cabinet secretary for CYFD, said using just two years of test data to judge the impact of the state’s early-childhood programs on the academic achievement of third-graders is not fair. Sen. John Sapien, D-Corrales, echoed that concern during the presentation. Several statewide Head Start representatives offered reasons why they did not share information with the Legislative Finance Committee.

Jaime Diaz, deputy CEO of the MidWest New Mexico Community Action Head Start, based in Los Lunas, said Legislative Finance Committee personnel did not ask him for data about the program’s 825 students in three counties until this past summer and didn’t give him enough time to provide it. He said to protect his clients, he declined to pass on some personal information — although federal Head Start guidelines do not prohibit sharing that data — but he offered to give the Legislative Finance Committee aggregate data covering specific groups. “There are holes in a lot of the [Legislative Finance Committee] data. The onus is now on us to talk to the LFC,” once Head Start officials have a

chance to really study the report, he said. Those Head Start representatives did not see the report until Wednesday morning. Sen. Howie Morales, D-Silver City, said he wondered if staff at the Legislative Finance Committee set aside enough time to compile the data for the study. Sen. John Arthur Smith, D-Deming,

chairman of the committee, said the Legislative Finance Committee researchers are “pretty bright young people” who were not out to produce a “gotcha” report, but intent on improving the way the state coordinates early-childhood programs. Several legislators, as well as guest speakers at Wednesday’s meeting, brought up the idea of combining state services to better orchestrate earlychildhood efforts.

This year, they’re attending nine different events. “We like the food, but we also like attending the seminars on things like old world versus new world wines,” Brad Karp said.

Council eliminates ‘beer jail’ at ballpark By Daniel J. Chacón

Beer drinkers scored a home run Wednesday at City Hall. The Santa Fe City Council voted 6-0 to allow the consumption of beer in the stands and concession areas at Fort Marcy Ballpark, eliminating the socalled beer jail during Pecos League games. City Councilor Carmichael Dominguez left the meeting before the vote. “The thing I like about it is that I’m only making one pile of peanuts instead of two,” quipped Santa Fe native Rick Martinez. The council’s decision ends a policy that restricted alcohol

consumption to a fenced-in beer garden. The council enacted new rules to prevent over-serving customers, sales to minors and other problems. Under the revised ordinance, beer drinkers will have to wear a wristband that limits the number of drinks to no more than three per person. Alcohol sales must cease at the end of the sixth inning. In addition, a manager must be present in the concession area at all times and wear a name tag. “The vendor shall place signs in the concession area and outside the concession area that indicate the illegality of selling,

Legislative auditors criticized state oversight of taxpayer-subsidized child care providers Wednesday, saying a government agency failed to detect sex offenders living at child care locations. Staff auditors of the Legislative Finance Committee said the Children, Youth and Families Department suspended three child care homes after auditors told the agency that registered sex offenders listed the homes as their primary addresses. Department spokesman see ALso Henry Varela said the homes no longer can serve as child u Legislative report care providers. The agency con- criticizes state and firmed the sex offenders lived Head Start pre-K there and revoked the state reg- programs. PAge A-1 istration needed for the homes to provide child care services. Two of the providers were in Albuquerque and one in Algodones. In a report released at a committee meeting in Santa Fe, auditors said “weak program integrity efforts at CYFD threaten effective allocation of resources and potentially endanger children.” The report said there’s a high risk of fraud and waste in the child care assistance program because of inadequate review of child attendance and billing records. Auditors estimated that as much as $11 million annually in improper payments isn’t recovered by the state. The department’s cabinet secretary, Yolanda Berumen-Deines, said in a written response to the audit that the agency is developing an automated system to cross-check the state government’s registry of sex offenders and the department’s list of child care provider addresses. That system will be operating by the end of the year. Berumen-Deines said department staff currently review applications for new child care homes and check information against the sex offender registry. There are nearly 3,700 registered child care homes in the state. Varela said the primary caregiver undergoes a background check, but other adults living in the home are subject only to a “protective services” screening by the agency to determine if there have been allegations of abuse or neglect against them. There are about 1,000 licensed child care providers in New Mexico and they must meet certain department licensing standards, including that all adult workers are subject to background checks and agency screening. The auditors found examples of sex offenders living in a house, trailer or apartment next door to a childcare provider. The report said New Mexico is among 19 states with no law restricting how close sex offenders can live to child care facilities or schools. Berumen-Deines said current law requires county sheriffs to notify schools and licensed day care centers of registered sex offenders living within a onemile radius. She also said sex offenders on probation are prohibited from living within a two-mile radius of a child care facility.

In other business, the council voted to remand to the Planning Commission the proposed development plan and rezoning of the Manderfield School on Canyon Road. The commission previously rejected the proposal. But after the vote, the developer and the Canyon Road Neighborhood Association reached a deal, and the association withdrew its opposition to the project after agreeing to new conditions. “We are really excited to be here under what we feel are positive circumstances,” said Jennifer

Jenkins, a representative for the developer. “It’s an opportunity to preserve this school and this building and to revitalize this building, which sits vacant surrounded by a chain-link fence.” Senior Planner Heather Lamboy told the council that some of the conditions related to whose art could be sold from the studios in the development were unenforceable by the city. Opinions of those who showed up to testify were split over whether the council should approve it. Contact Daniel Chacón at 986-3089 or dchacon@

Facebook posting leads to Carlsbad arrest CARLSBAD — A Facebook post has landed a Carlsbad woman in hot water. Authorities say 35-year-old Alicia Ortega received more than $39,000 in government assistance after lying about her marital and living status on applications for the aid programs. The Carlsbad Current-Argus reports that Ortega is facing four counts of failure to disclose facts for public assistance and 15 counts of false claim for reimbursement. Reports by case workers showed Ortega stated she was separated from her husband, Ramon Ortega, for eight years and that he was living in Texas. Ortega claimed that she received $400 a month from him in child support for her three children. However, federal investigators discovered posts on Alicia Ortega’s Facebook page in which she and her husband exchange loving comments for their 13-year anniversary.

Suit: Doc implanted unneeded devices LAS CRUCES — A lawsuit headed to trial in New Mexico accuses a doctor, hospital and an international biomedical firm of teaming up to implant unneeded

pacemakers and other devices in patients to boost profits. Tommy and Barbara Sowards are suing for damages after they say the doctor implanted an unneeded pacemaker when Tommy Sowards went to MountainView Regional Medical Center in Las Cruces in January 2007. They’re suing cardiologist Dr. Demosthenes Klonis, the hospital and pacemaker manufacturer Biotronik, Inc. The Las Cruces Sun-News reports attorneys for the doctor and manufacturer denied the allegations, but declined further comment Tuesday during a break in pretrial proceedings. The case is set for trial in November. The hospital didn’t respond to requests for comment. One of the Albuquerque-based attorneys representing the Sowards says 34 people reportedly received unnecessary implantations.

On the heels of high-profile coyote and prairie dog killing contests, a coalition of conservation groups has sent the New Mexico Tourism Department a suggested list of possible new nicknames for the state.

Boyfriend’s ex still is in the picture Dear Annie: I started dating “Zach” 18 months ago and have been living with him for almost a year. Things are perfect except for one thing. Before we met, Zach dated another girl for three years. She was horrible and hurtful toward him. When I began seeing Zach, his ex started harassing me to the point where I had to take out a restraining order against her. The problem is, Zach’s older sister is still in constant contact with the ex. She always talks about her in front of me and even allows the ex to babysit her children. She often invites the ex to go places with her and posts pictures of the two of them on Facebook. Zach has had many fights with his sister about this, telling her how hurtful it is to both of us, yet she still continues to do it. I’ve tried everything possible to make his sister like me, but I can’t keep competing with the ex. It’s causing a strain between Zach and his sister. I don’t have issues with anyone else in his family. What can I do to get the ex out of the picture permanently? — The Current Woman in His Life Dear Current: Zach’s sister is doing this for one of two reasons: Either she likes getting your goat, in which case, your response is very gratifying for her. Or, she doesn’t want you to dictate who her friends can be. Either way, your response should be the same: Ignore it. If her main purpose is to annoy you, she will become bored with the tactic when she sees it has no effect. And if she is truly friends with this woman, the relationship is not your business. The added benefit of ignoring it is that Zach will be grateful. You already have his total support, and that is what counts.

it in public. I was taught that it is rude to answer one’s phone when in the midst of a conversation. I believe this also goes for texting or using apps. I try to avoid using my phone while at social events. If I have to make a call or respond to a message, I excuse myself to another room. Lately, I have noticed people using their phones in all types of situations that I would consider inappropriate. Are these people just oblivious to the standards of respect that should be shown to others, or have the standards changed? Is there a good set of rules to follow when using my smartphone in public? Also, how can I politely let people know that their phone use is making me feel ignored? — Confused College Kid Dear College Kid: May we clone you? Basic phone etiquette says that you do not take a call when you are with someone else. Letting it disturb your conversation indicates that the call is more important than the person you are with. If it is an emergency, excuse yourself and call back. Try not to speak too loudly. Every person around shouldn’t be privy to your conversation. (It is also a safety issue in case you are giving out personal information.) If someone ignores you to answer a call or play Angry Birds, ask them nicely to please put their phone away. If they still cannot focus their attention on you, say, “I can see that you are busy. I’ll talk to you later.” Dear Annie: This is for “Torn Grandma,” who babysits for her granddaughter who may be allergic to Grandma’s dog. Perhaps Grandma could watch her granddaughter in the child’s home or in a dog-free room that has an air filter running daily.

t’s the smile that says it all. After months of legal limbo, Clifford — one of the last of the many dogs once held at the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society in an animal abuse case — is now enjoying the good life at Kindred Spirits Animal Sanctuary, south of Santa Fe. Ulla Pedersen, the sanctuary’s founder and director, agreed last week to accept the elderly blind heeler mix into her group of older dogs, horses and poultry. On Tuesday, Pedersen said Clifford relaxed enough to offer her a canine smile. It was the first time since he became a sanctuary resident. “There’s been so much trauma in his life,” she said. “But he’s coming around; this is as natural a place for him as can be to settle in — a clean environment, no toxins and a safe place.” Clifford was one of the 10 dogs being held by bond at the shelter during the ongoing animal abuse case. Debra Clopton, an Edgewood woman who faces 48 counts of animal cruelty, failed to continue paying the bond for the animals’ care, and they were relinquished to the shelter. Some had to be euthanized because of chronic pain or medical problems; others are being worked with by the shelter staff to overcome their trust issues. Clifford’s saga began in early April when the county seized 48 animals from Clopton’s property. Eventually, most of the initial group, plus their offspring, were released to the shelter’s custody and have found new homes. Some of those dogs are still available for adoption. Two shy and timid dogs, for example, are at Santa Fe Tails Dog Academy, Daycare & Spay, where they continue to get needed socialization. Clifford, like all of the dogs, poultry and horses being cared for by Pedersen and her volunteers, is provided with good nutrition, veterinary care — both Western and homeopathic medicine — and lots of love. Despite Clifford’s blindness, he is beginning to know his way around the sanctuary, Pedersen said. It helps that he has his own place in what’s known as the memorial gardens — a fenced-in yard often used for overflow. “It’s important for him to know that he has his own place, a safe place,” she said. “He’s met everyone, and he’s great. He will fit in fine; we just want to do it little by little and make sure we don’t set him up for failure.” Most of the animals at the sanctuary are what some might consider “cast offs,” Pedersen said. And that’s not just meant figuratively. Etta, for example, was used in a puppy mill. Once she stopped reproducing, she was tossed into the streets. “She’s a very nice girl,” Pedersen said. “But she was never socialized. She was kept in a cage, so she can be kind of nippy. It’s just fear biting and as long as she knows what you’re doing, she’s OK. She has some medical issues, but she’s a beautiful little dog.”


Thanks to ongoing support for free spaying and neutering in the community, the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society will host another free clinic for dozens of dogs at its south-side clinic on Thursday. The first-come, first-serve event at the shelter’s Spay/ Neuter & Wellness Clinic, 2570 Camino Entrada, will offer free altering to the first 50 dogs. A donor, who helps with free spaying/neutering throughout the region, is underwriting the event. Check-in is at 7 a.m. Arrive early to secure a surgery slot. Dogs must be between 8 weeks and 5 years of age and weigh more than 2 pounds. Animals shouldn’t have food after 10 p.m. the night before surgery.

Ulla Pedersen, the founder and director of the sanctuary will speak on wellness care at 11 a.m.; Breck Breckenridge offers a presentation on canine massage at 12:30 p.m.; and veterinarian Sue McKelvey will speak on senior dog rehabilitation at 2 p.m. Refreshments and tours of the sanctuary will be available.

A group of three elderly Chihuahuas were abandoned in Southern New Mexico when their owner’s house caught fire. The people fled, leaving the dogs behind. The dogs have blossomed under Pedersen’s care. One dog, dubbed Grandpa, weighed just more than 1 pound when he arrived. He now weighs 4 pounds. “He couldn’t even walk when he arrived,”

Pedersen said. “Now, he’s a happy guy. There’s such a big difference.” Many of the animals taken in by Pedersen need time to adjust, just like Clifford. Consistency is important, along with a gentle touch and good veterinary care. Seeing all the animals happy at the sanctuary helps Pedersen know she’s doing the right thing. That’s why her annual open house is a great thing for people to experience. She’ll be offering talks, demonstrations and tours all day Saturday. “We try to show people what we do here and help them see for themselves that it is a good thing,” she said. “I look at these guys here and I see a lot of smiley faces — I see wobbles, but I see wagging tails, and I see the difference from when they come in. Most don’t look so good at first, but then, even after a month or two, I see a tremendous difference in their ability to feel relaxed and at ease.” Aside from a safe place for animals, the sanctuary works to help people with their own elderly animals. That’s why the workshops and talks are so important. But simply visiting the sanctuary’s residents helps people confront their own issues around aging and death. “Sometimes people ask, after an fundraising event, if it’s been successful,” Pedersen said. “It’s always successful to me if people leave with a smile on their face. That’s how I measure success, because it means their interaction with the animals has touched them and it has touched their heart and they leave with an open heart about aging and oldness in general.”

Heritage language programs on the rise By Laura Wides-Muñoz The Associated Press

MIAMI — Dorothy Villarreal grew up dreaming in Spanish, first in Mexico and later in South Texas, where her family moved when she was 6. She excelled in school — in English. But at home life was in Spanish, from the long afternoon chats with her grandparents to the Spanish-language version of Barbie magazines she eagerly awaited each month. She figured she was fluent in both languages. Then the Harvard University junior spent last summer studying in Mexico and realized just how big the gaps in her Spanish were. “We were talking about the presidential election, and there was so much I wanted to explain,” Villarreal said. “We’d end up playing a guessing game where I’d speak in English, and my friends, they’d speak back in Spanish to guess what I was saying.” Villarreal’s experience is increasingly common in America, where 1 in 5 children grows up in a home where English isn’t the sole language. To help them fill in the gaps, universities are adapting their foreign language curriculum, in part to better prepare graduates for a globalized world where it pays to be professionally fluent in more than one language. Children in multilingual homes grow up a step ahead of other would-be language learners. They can easily engage in small talk or follow the latest soap opera in their families’ native language. Yet when it comes to meatier topics, or reading and writing, they are stuck. The linguistic gaps become apparent in high school, where these students can snooze through basic language classes but often drown in more advanced ones — if their heritage language is even offered. After all, how many American high schools offer Arabic or Korean? With 37 million Spanishspeakers in America, most heritage classes are in Spanish, and courses have bloomed across campuses in California, Florida and several Southwestern states. They have also begun to

take hold in schools like Harvard University, which added a course this year. Beyond language, the heritage class offers Villarreal a rare academic space to examine topics she’s less comfortable talking about with her mostly white and upper-middleclass peers. She contrasted the heritage class with the course she runs to immediately after: an advanced, general Spanish class on cultural practices of the U.S.-Mexico border. In that class, Villareal said she is uncharacteristically quiet. “We’re talking in this abstract way about what the border is, and I’m thinking I went to school five minutes from the border. For me the border is what shuts down my school when the [Department of Homeland Security] helicopters come to find the people trying to cross,” she said. Heritage language programs have existed in the U.S. in some form for more than a century as a way to retain both language and culture — even as Englishonly movements waxed and waned. German schools were common in the late 1800s. Youth in California have long attended weekend Chinese and Japanese programs. Bilingual Spanish classes have been around for decades. Yet the development of separate heritage language university instruction is relatively new. The University of Texas-Pan American received funding from the Department of Education in 2007 to create a minor in medical Spanish for heritage speakers, and other schools are beginning to replicate the program. Spanish classes aren’t the only

heritage courses on the rise. Harvard already has heritage programs in Russian, Chinese and Korean, which the U.S. government considers strategically critical languages for diplomacy and counterintelligence. The National Heritage Language Resource Center at the University of California, Los Angeles, funded by the U.S. Department of Education since 2006, recently conducted the first national survey of higher education heritage instruction and found specialized instruction in 34 states. Chinese, Korean, Russian and Farsi were among the most popular after Spanish. Despite increasing numbers of these programs, funding for them remains limited. University of Pennsylvania Professor Emeritus Surendra Gambhir helped start one of the nation’s first higher education Hindi heritage language programs but said most of the 100 or so schools offering Hindi don’t have the resources to create dual language tracks. The Department of Education cut the Resource Center’s funding two years ago due to budget constraints. Kimberly Potowski, a linguistics professor at the University of Illinois, Chicago, who is writing a textbook for heritage language professors, says there are significant differences in how language should be taught to heritage learners. For example, heritage students aren’t learning about exotic, foreign cultures, they’re reconnecting with their own. And rather than abstract exercises, they should be encouraged to interview relatives or to analyze emails to friends for grammatical mistakes.

Two inmates ran away while the other six stayed nearby. Officers recovered a 12-gauge shotgun that had been inside the vehicle. No injuries were reported. Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford was locked down for about two hours while police searched for the two inmates who ran away. The pair, Lester Burns and Michael Coleman, were taken into custody in Weatherford. Coleman, who was wearing the teddy bear shirt, was being held for assault and Burns for failure to pay child support, police said. Critics of private prison transportation companies have complained that they are poorly regulated. “This is an example of what happens when we privatize functions that belonged to the government,” said Richard Allen Smith, a spokesman for In The Public Interest, a Washington-based research and policy nonprofit that studies the effects privatization has on communities. “We lose two things: transparency and accountability. “We’ve seen this in many sectors, specifically with the prison system, when we contract and outsource public services,” he said in an interview Wednesday.

Senator is Cruz-ing for a bruising

PACs wrong for city races

Dana Milbank

The Washington Post


couple of hours before Sen. Ted Cruz launched his doomed filibuster, his Republican colleagues staged an intervention. They called him to the Strom Thurmond Room off the Senate floor, named after the late lawmaker who was famous for his filibusters against civil rights. They pleaded with their junior colleague to reconsider his plan to block a vote on legislation that would keep the government open. The filibuster, ostensibly in opposition to Obamacare, would do nothing to halt the hated health care reforms, they said. It would make Republicans look foolish. It would leave House Republicans with too little time to avoid a shutdown. And it could cause Republicans to be blamed for that shutdown. Cruz heard them out and then told them to take a hike. “I intend to speak in support of defunding Obamacare until I am no longer able to stand,” he announced as he launched his marathon filibuster. (Twenty-one hours later, he finished.) His action hurt his fellow Republicans without doing anything to abolish Obamacare. But the filibuster did achieve something: It gave Cruz more TV exposure and further endeared him to the tea party. And for the ambitious senator from Texas, the most important thing has always been Ted Cruz. As he brought the Senate to a halt, Cruz told his captive audience many salient facts: He likes pancakes. He’s “a big fan” of White Castle. His father liked to watch

C movies three times. “Green Eggs and Ham was my favorite book when I was a little boy.” His parents were smallbusiness owners. Their business went bankrupt. He thinks fact-checkers (who often point out Cruz’s falsehoods) are a “pernicious” form of “yellow journalism.” On and on he went, hour after hour. He spoke about Obamacare but also about his daughters, his wife, his travels, his footwear, his staff and his father’s underwear. With a fixed look of earnest sorrow, the balding lawmaker returned again and again to his favorite topic: himself. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about Cruz’s filibuster was how much of a solo act it was. There were cameos in the early hours by Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, David Vitter, R-La., Rand Paul, R-Ky., and others, but in contrast to the team effort toward Paul’s filibuster in March, this was all about Cruz. More than once he remarked on the empty chamber. “Anyone who wants to know why this body is held in low esteem only has to look out to the empty chairs,” he said. “What is the United States Senate doing to listen

to you?” he asked his C-SPAN audience. He didn’t seem to grasp that the chamber was empty because most of his colleagues didn’t want to stand with him. Privately, Republican senators spoke of their distaste for their self-aggrandizing colleague. There was speculation that the defundObamacare effort would get more votes if it weren’t identified with Cruz. Their complaints were similar to those of House Republicans who branded Cruz a “fraud” for demanding that the House send the Senate a bill defunding Obamacare and then, once they committed to doing so, announced that he didn’t have the votes for Senate passage. Even Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, normally frightened of Cruz’s tea party support, stood in opposition. “I just don’t happen to think filibustering a bill that defunds Obamacare is the best route to defunding Obamacare,” McConnell said on the floor Tuesday. “All it does is shut down the government and keep Obamacare funded.” If this were the Roman senate, they would have had a phrase for what is happening to Cruz: Sic semper sui

amatoribus. Thus always to self-lovers. Democrats, of course, were delighted with the Republicans’ bickering. President Barack Obama was on the world stage, giving an address to the United Nations that included a passionate defense of why he believes the United States is the indispensable nation. “Some may disagree, but I believe America is exceptional,” Obama said. Republicans, by contrast, were arguing about “cloture” and “post-cloture” votes to defund Obamacare. Is there any doubt about who will win the coming showdown? Cruz tried to cast his quest in the loftiest terms, saying those who resist his bid to defund Obamacare are like those who appeased the Nazis. But before long, he was back to his favorite topic. He spoke of the black ostrich cowboy boots he likes to wear on the Senate floor but said he was “embarrassed” to admit that he bought black tennis shoes for his filibuster. Good to know his feet are comfortable. But how long until this self-promoting Texan gets the boot? Follow Dana Milbank on Twitter @milbank.


President needs to stop duplicitous decisions


s a senator under President George W. Bush, Barack Obama complained of raising the debt limit as symptomatic of poor political leadership. Now, as president, he complains of resistance to raising it. Claiming championship of jobs and the economy, he pushes Obamacare, which destroys both. Claiming championship of freedom, he ignores and overrides the Constitution. Duplicity?


health insurance to the 30 million citizens who have none? You talk about freedom, but do you really believe that anyone can be free if they are sick or injured with no medical care? I don’t think so. But wait, maybe, just maybe, to put it bluntly, these Republicans just mean, “I (and those who vote for me) have mine, and to hell with you.” Look readers, Obamacare is not perfect, but it’s a start and can be fixed as we go.

Imagine playing a game of chess in which your every move is met with a clamor of disagreement. In the real world, more complicated than chess, Barack Obama, in spite of the clamor, chooses each move and wisely waits for his opponents to make theirs before making the next. This is much the way he has handled the Syrian crisis as well as the array of other challenges he faces. Instead of damning him as a blundering fool, which many have been doing, let’s praise the man (we have elected twice) for his role in ending two wars and avoiding another; in the overthrow of dictators, in a health care plan that will hopefully insure most everyone and reduce costs; in an economy recovering from the depths his predecessors created; in efforts to combat climate change. While working with a dysfunctional, antagonistic Congress, could any man have done better?

It’s a good start I would ask the Republicans in Congress who rail against Obamacare these questions: Are you willing to give up your own government health insurance to show that you are impartial and consistently against government health insurance? Do you or a loved one on your policy have a previous medical condition? Have you ever tried to buy health insurance on your own? Have you ever seriously put forth a law that would offer

andidates for Santa Fe City Council and mayor can’t let the taxpayer-supported public financing system implode. Taking private dollars out of the races for council and mayor is too important. That’s why it’s good news that most candidates running for the job of mayor agree that outside political action committees (PACs) should stay out of city elections. Mayoral candidates generally want to win the $60,000 in public financing. To qualify, each has to go, hat in hand, and ask 600 voters for $5 apiece by Nov. 18. The $3,000 threshold amount is an attempt to make sure that a candidate who will receive taxpayer assistance actually has voter support. (City councilors only need 150 contributions of $5 each to qualify for $15,000 in public financing.) There’s a loophole, though. The city doesn’t — and legally can’t — limit participation by PACs formed to push issues or certain candidates. That’s just the state of campaign finance, as determined by the U.S. Supreme Court. Already, a pro-labor (and pro-Javier Gonzales for mayor) PAC is up and running. Gonzales, like other major candidates for mayor — Councilor Patti Bushee, former Santa Fe County Manager Roman Abeyta, Councilor Bill Dimas and Councilor Rebecca Wurzburger — says he doesn’t support the outside spending and will seek taxpayer financing. However, such statements don’t mean much if the PAC still collects money and spends it. Hiding behind “issue” spending is wrong and cheats taxpayers, who are spending their dollars to keep outside influences to a minimum. We must demand better from the men and women who want to be mayor. Gonzales, in particular, should ask his supporters to cease and desist in no uncertain terms. Citizens can stop any end-run against public financing. Just say no to candidates who want taxpayer dollars, while winking at PAC spending by their supporters. For this expensive, taxpayer-funded public financing system to work, outside spending needs to go. The candidates, in their first test of mayoral leadership, can make sure that happens.

Down to the dirt


eighbors banding together to attack weeds and clear the sidewalks is a great notion — we applaud Sidewalk Angels, the newly formed group working in Tierra Contenta in south Santa Fe. However, an idea and its execution are two different things. It’s one thing to clear the sidewalks and another to chop down chamisa so that only dirt remains. Chamisas are hardy perennials, not weeds. Perhaps city crews were too aggressive in their efforts, because where plants once overflowed onto sidewalks, there seems to be mostly dirt. Evidently, crews wanted to ensure they don’t have to cut the chamisas back again next year. Some plants, too, were removed by homeowners ahead of the clean up. Purple Sage Road is definitely unrecognizable now. We can’t wait to see what will replace the chamisas so that dirt isn’t all that pedestrians and motorists see traveling through the subdivision. Some of the chamisas remain, and of course, those will return. As for the bare dirt, we hope homeowners will add plants or rock — beauty matters, too. Let’s remember, too, that homeowners are responsible for the area to the street. Chamisas should never have been allowed to grow so large. That might not be a problem again. Now, it’s time to cover the dirt.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Sept. 26, 1913: The people of Santa Fe are not the only ones greatly interested in the Plaza; the tourists and healthseekers flocking to the ancient city have found the Plaza the ideal little park to rest and in resting to gaze on antiquity. ’Tis the Plaza which is the center of the Old and of the New; ’tis the Plaza which looks on the oldest government building in this country and which also faces the stores, banks, refreshment “parlors” and other evidences of 20th-century activity. Sept. 26, 1988: The heavy summer rains could make the golden glow of aspens a little less brilliant this year. The rain is responsible for a leaf-rot fungus that is turning some leaves brown. As a result, the leaves might fall quickly.

Oracle pulls off comeback to keep America’s Cup U.S. boat makes historic push past New Zealand in finale By Bernie Wilson

The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — The big black cat almost used up its last life at the start, burying its bows in a wave and falling behind a boatload of Kiwis. Of course, it was only fitting in this America’s Cup that Oracle Team USA would need to survive near-defeat again. With one last spectacular push in a winner-take-all finale Wednesday, the United States managed to hang onto the Auld Mug in closing out the longest, fastest and, by far,


NMAA reveals division plans

wildest America’s Cup ever with one of the greatest comebacks in sports. Skipper Jimmy Spithill steered Oracle’s space-age, 72-foot catamaran to its eighth straight victory, speeding past Dean Barker and Team New Zealand in Race 19 on a San Francisco Bay course bordered by the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the Embarcadero. All but defeated a week ago, the 34-year-old Australian and his international crew twice rallied from seven-point deficits to win 9-8. Owned by software billionaire Larry Ellison, Oracle Team USA was docked two points for illegally modifying boats in warmup regattas and had to win 11 races to keep the trophy. “It really is about the team, man,” Spithill said. “On your own you’re nothing, but when you’ve got a team like this around you, they

can make you look great. They did all of that today and the whole series. I’m so proud of the boys. … They didn’t flinch.” It could have been over shortly after the start just inside the Golden Gate Bridge. Oracle’s hulking black catamaran — with a giant No. 17 on each hull — buried its twin bows in a wave approaching the first mark and Barker turned his red-and-black cat around the buoy with a 7-second lead. The New Zealanders were game despite being stranded on match point for a week. Spithill and crew still had to sail their best to keep from becoming the third American loser in 30 years. Oracle narrowed Team New Zealand’s lead

A leader with many skills

By Will Webber The New Mexican

ALBUQUERQUE — The seismic shift that promises to reshape New Mexico’s high school sports landscape will come Nov. 20. The trembles felt Monday were just a sign of things to come. During its latest board of directors meeting, the New Mexico Activities Association announced its plans for its latest overhaul of the classification and alignment system that divides the state’s schools into athletic districts. On hand for the nearly four-hour meeting Monday morning at the new Community Stadium on Albuquerque’s west side were a number of school administrators and coaches, including interim Santa Fe Public Schools athletic director Bill Moon, Santa Fe High head coaches Ray Holladay (football), David Rodriguez (boys basketball) and Elmer Chavez (girls basketball). Also there were St. Michael’s athletic director Tom Manning and Santa Fe Indian School athletic director Matt Martinez. None of them could do a thing to alter what is sure to come, and that’s the reality of several Santa Fe-area schools getting shoved into new classifications and possibly new districts starting next school year. No action was taken Monday. Among those at the forefront of the discussion is Santa Fe High, which is slated to join the new Class AAAAAA in 2014. The NMAA is essentially eliminating Class B for the state’s smallest schools and renaming it Class A. All the other classifications will simply move up another level. Class AAAAAA will have roughly 24 schools, most of which are currently in Class AAAAA. One of the newcomers is Santa Fe High, based strictly on student enrollment. NMAA assistant director Bill Cleland said a school’s three-year average for its 40-day enrollment counts will determine its classification. The next 40-day count is due to the state’s Public Education Department by mid-October. Those figures will be added to the previous two years’ worth, averaged out and used to place schools in their new alignments. In Santa Fe High’s case, it’s projected three-year average would make it one of the smallest schools in the state’s largest class. While SFPS and even most coaches at Santa Fe High are conceding that point, what’s at stake is which district the school will be placed in. It is tentatively slated to join the same district as Rio Rancho, Cibola, Cleveland and Volcano Vista — arguably one of the toughest districts for all sports. Holladay has lobbied for a move into the district that will house Albuquerque schools Highland, Rio Grande, Atrisco Heritage Academy, West Mesa, Albuquerque High and potentially Valley. In so doing, he argues, it provides more competitive balance.

The Demons’ Josue De Luna aims for a goal during the Sept. 18 boys soccer match against Monte del Sol at SFHS. LUIS SÁNCHEZ SATURNO/THE NEW MEXICAN

Santa Fe High’s Josue De Luna shines on soccer pitch, football and rugby fields By Edmundo Carrillo The New Mexican


osue De Luna is not afraid of a little contact. When the senior midfielder/forward for the Santa Fe High boys soccer team isn’t scoring goals on the pitch, he is kicking field goals for the football team. And that’s not all. In addition to being the football team’s place kicker, De Luna plays rugby, which is a big concern for his soccer coaches. “They always tell me to play soccer instead, but I’m like, ‘No, I’m going to play rugby,’ ” De Luna said. “They always check on me to see if I’m injured.” As for playing on the football team, head boys soccer coach A.J. Herrera and head football coach Ray Holladay are OK with letting him do both, as long as soccer is the priority. “A.J. is cool with it, as long as I don’t miss [soccer] practice,” De Luna said. De Luna has been on the varsity roster for the

Demons since he was a freshman. He could have played varsity as an eighth-grader, but he attended private school Christian Life Academy. New Mexico Activities Association transfer rules prohibited him from playing at the varsity level, so he had to settle for JV. He scored four goals as a freshman and 11 goals each in his sophomore and junior seasons. Through 12 matches as a senior, he has found the back of the net 14 times and is the Demons’ leading scorer. “Somehow, I’ve been getting a lot of goals — more so than the last couple years,” he said. “I’ve been scoring a lot of goals because the team has been working like a team. It’s not just my skill, it’s the whole team working together.” Santa Fe High assistant coach Jon Condit, who has coached De Luna since he was a freshman, says he always has been a big contributor, even when he was younger. “Freshman year, he came on varsity and he’s been very consistent,” Condit said. “He’s been great in the middle for us, and I think he’s always

been a leader. He fits that role very well.” Condit said De Luna’s leadership skills stem from his ability to score. Now that he is a senior, Condit has noticed a a more vocal change in De Luna’s leadership skills. “Initially, he fits that leadership role with his skill, and so people pick up on that and they feed on that,” Condit said. “He has a lot of fun, but he knows when it’s time to play well and lead his team. He always has a great attitude, and I think other people pick up on that, too. He’s definitely one of those people that raises the level of ability and makes his team better.” Herrera thinks De Luna’s talents go beyond the soccer pitch. To him, De Luna is a role model for all Santa Fe youth. “He has a 3.5 GPA, he’s never late to practice and he always gives 100 percent,” Herrera said. “The players like him, and that’s why I like coaching him. He’s just a joy to coach.”

Yankees fall to Rays, miss playoffs By Ronald Blum

NEW YORK — The New York Yankees failed to make the playoffs for only the second time in 19 years, Rays 8 getting mathematically Yankees 3 eliminated Wednesday night during an 8-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.

for clinching an AL wild-card berth. Slowed by age and hobbled by injury, the Yankees (82-76) were chased with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning when the Cleveland Indians completed a 7-2 win over the Chicago White Sox. Despite baseball’s highest opening-day payroll at $230 million, the Yankees failed to claim one of the 10 playoff berths. “We didn’t get to where we wanted to get,” manager Joe Girardi said after it was over. Since starting the latest run of

success in 1995, New York had missed the playoffs only in 2008 — when the team bid goodbye to old Yankee Stadium. This time, the Yankees are saying goodbye to Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte, who are retiring when the season ends Sunday. Before a quiet crowd of 37,260, the Yankees lost for the eighth time in 11 games and were eliminated from contention for a playoff berth on their own field for the first time since 1991.

Soccer could make comeback at Española By Edmundo Carrillo The New Mexican

There might be soccer once again at Española Valley High School. Española athletic coordinator Eric Vigil said he is sending a sign-up sheet around the school to gauge student interest in a soccer program. If Vigil determines there is interest, then he will work on rebooting the program. The school had boys and girls teams last year, but they were on probationary status because the programs hadn’t played in two years, and they played against non-varsity opponents, like the Los Alamos C-teams. “At least the kids were able to play,” said former Española athletic director Lenny Roybal, who attempted to bring a program back to the school in December 2011 after it was cut in 2009. When Roybal tried to restart the pro-

gram, he hit a speed bump when he could not find any teachers to coach the teams. “It’s hard to get people to coach that are on campus,” he said. “Teachers don’t want to put in that kind of time anymore. I think it’s important to have a coach that is on campus that can keep and eye on the kids and motivate them to do well in school.” uuu

These are tough times for the Pojoaque Valley boys and girls soccer teams. The two squads are a combined 5-14, and the girls started out 0-8 before getting two straight wins over Bernalillo and Santa Fe Indian School. Angelo Montoya’s girls team is young, but he thinks its woes also are a result of a lack of participation in club soccer. “Our girls don’t play year-round like the girls in Santa Fe do,” he said. “I think that puts us at a disadvantage.”

The young Elkettes are showing signs of improvement. They earned six goals in their last two matches after scoring only four in their first eight. uuu

After starting the season at 1-3, the St. Michael’s Horsemen are now 7-2 and are on a five-game winning streak. Their record improved when Capital forfeited a win after it used ineligible players, but the Horsemen are a perfect 5-0 in District 2A-AAA. “We’re just building on things and we’re getting better and better,” said head coach Merritt Brown. “We’re still not there yet, but we’re pleased with the way we’re going.” The Horsemen’s next district opponent is Santa Fe Preparatory, which they will play Oct. 3. The Lady Horsemen are also on top of District 2A-AAA with a 2-0 mark and an overall record of 7-3.

When De Luna isn’t playing something on a field, he is busy playing music. He plays bass and piano, but his favorite instrument is guitar. “Lately I’ve been playing a lot of indie and alternative music, but on electric guitar, I like to play metal,” he said. His first concern at the moment, though, is orchestrating another postseason for Santa Fe High. The Demons went 13-7 in 2012 and made the state

tournament for the first time in 15 years. This season has seen more struggles, and the Demons sit at 6-6, but the District 2AAAA season awaits them. They start with defending district champion Los Alamos at home on Saturday. De Luna believes the Demons will make the necessary late-season run and make the playoffs again. “Last year, we picked it up at the end of the year and went to state, and I think that’s going to happen again this year,” he said. If the Demons fail to make

Del Norte’s only goal came in the 71st minute. “I would much rather play a mediocre first half and a strong second half than have it the other way around,” Herrera said. “We came out strong in the second half and created opportunities.” Demon goalkeeper Jonathan Soriano had five saves on the day.

NMAA: Schools can make appeals in Nov. Continued from Page B-1 The NMAA said it will allow schools to file a formal appeal, but it must come within a 72-hour window after the Nov. 20 board meeting in which the final decision on all alignment issues will be settled. The multiple shifts also have a number of private schools potentially on the move, including St. Michael’s. With the 1.3 multiplier used against all private school enrollments, St. Michael’s appears to be a lock for AAAA, along with current district rivals Hope Christian, Sandia Prep and Santa Fe Indian School. One school hurt the most by the multiplier is East Moun-

tain. Currently in AA, it will likely join the all-private school district in AAAA next year. On hand for Wednesday’s meeting were the school’s principal and athletic director. Their 25-minute presentation to the board highlighted their lack of facilities, lack of student participation and inability to secure additional funds from the state to improve their situation. They asked the board to install an inverse multiplier for them alone. Rather than the 1.3 used for all private schools, they asked for a 0.7. Their case garnered little sympathy from the board, which essentially ignored their request. Among the board members offering

the heaviest critiques were Stan Rounds of Las Cruces, Bill Green of Quemado, T.J. Parks of Hobbs and Winston Brooks of Albuquerque. There was also discussion about the possibility of eliminating either six-man or eightman football and the potential of the NMAA using one site for all state championship football games. While the future of sixman and eight-man remains unclear, the same cannot be said of having a one-day football showcase. Only Brooks, the Albuquerque Public Schools superintendent, was in favor the proposal. Slight changes were also made in how tennis matches are scored and how final-

ists in state track meets are determined. A proposal to make schools purchase a fully automatic timing system for all qualifying meets was tabled. Other items of note included the NMAA seeing a 5 percent drop in ticket sales during the 2012-13 school year. The biggest loss was at the state basketball tournament, a loss NMAA executives chalked up to a lack of marquee matchups. Football, however, saw an increase in ticket sales. The board passed a proposal that establishes a minimum number of schools necessary to add a new sport to those sanctioned by the NMAA. One of those sports once considered, albeit loosely, was bass fishing.

Oracle: U.S. boat wins race by 44 seconds Continued from Page B-1 to 3 seconds turning onto the third leg, the only time the boats sail into the wind. New Zealand had the lead the first time the boats crossed on opposite tacks. By the time they crossed again, the American boat — with only one American on its 11-man crew — had the lead. As Oracle worked to stay ahead, tactician Ben Ainslie, a four-time Olympic gold medalist from Britain, implored his mates by saying, “This is it. This is it. Working your [rears] off.” It had to be a gut-wrenching moment in New Zealand — coming so close to winning the oldest trophy in international sports a week ago, only to see

Oracle improve its speed. “We knew we had a fight on our hands,” Barker said. “It’s really frustrating. The gains that they made were just phenomenal. They did just an amazing job of sorting out their boat. It’s a good thing for us they didn’t do it earlier. I am incredibly proud of our team and what we achieved. But we didn’t get that last one we needed to take the cup back to New Zealand. It’s just very hard to swallow.” Oracle’s shore team had made changes to the black cat every night in its big boatshed on Pier 80 to make its cat a speed freak. As Spithill rounded the third mark onto the downwind fourth leg, his catamaran sprang onto its hydrofoils at 35 mph, its hulls

completely out of the water, and headed for history. A final sprint across the wind on the reaching fifth leg resulted in a 44-second victory. There were hugs and handshakes among the crew of four Australians, two Kiwis and one sailor each from the U.S., Britain, Italy, Holland and Antigua. Ellison, who has spent an estimated $500 million the last 11 years in pursuing, winning and now defending the silver trophy, hopped on board and was sprayed with champagne by the celebrating crew. Things weren’t always so jubilant, of course, but Spithill refused to let his team fold after the penalties were announced four days before racing started.

How big was this win? In sailing terms, it was the equivalent of the Boston Red Sox sweeping the final four games of the 2004 ALCS over the New York Yankees, the only 3-0 comeback in major league history. It’s also comparable to the Philadelphia Flyers overcoming a 0-3 deficit to beat the Boston Bruins in the 2010 NHL playoffs. As stirring of a comeback as it was for Spithill and his mates, it was a staggering loss for Team New Zealand. Barker, 41, was looking for redemption after losing the America’s Cup to Alinghi of Switzerland in 2003 and then steering the losing boat in 2007, also against Alinghi.

AL: Tigers capture Central title again Continued from Page B-1 Fans figure to be more exuberant during Thursday night’s home finale, when Rivera likely will make his final Yankee Stadium appearance. David Price (9-8) ended a five-start winless streak, one shy of his career worst, and Longoria drove in four runs. Price allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings with eight strikeouts and no walks. Longoria hit a three-run homer in the sixth off David Huff, and David DeJesus hit his second of the season on the next pitch. Longoria homered in the ninth off Preston Claiborne, his 31st of the season and ninth in 18 games this year against the Yankees. Phil Hughes (4-14) allowed three runs and seven hits in two innings-plus, walking slowly to the dugout and looking up to the stands when he was removed from what likely was his final start with the Yankees. TigErS 1, TwinS 0 In Minneapolis, Max Scherzer earned his 21st win and the Detroit Tigers clinched their third straight AL Central title. Torii Hunter’s single followed a leadoff triple by Austin Jackson in the first inning, and that was all Scherzer (21-3) and manager Jim Leyland’s Tigers needed to start the party. Scherzer gave up two singles in seven innings. Jose Veras and Drew Smyly teamed up for the eighth and Joaquin Benoit worked the ninth for his 24th save in 25 tries. rAngErS 7, ASTrOS 3 In Arlington, Texas, Leonys Martin hit a three-run double, Ian Kinsler homered and the Rangers kept pace in the AL wild-card chase, handing Houston its 12th loss in a row and team-record 108th defeat this season. Texas completed a threegame sweep and finished 17-2 with 11 straight wins against their instate rival. The Rangers remained a game behind Cleveland for the AL’s second wild-card spot — Tampa Bay is a game ahead of the Indians. Texas has four games left in the regular season, with the series opener at home against the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday night. inDiAnS 7, wHiTE SOX 2 In Cleveland, Rookie Danny Salazar gave the Indians a much-needed quality start and Nick Swisher hit a tworun homer as the Indians tightened their grip one of the AL wild-card spots with their 14th straight win over the Chicago White Sox. Salazar (2-3) struck out eight in 5⅓ innings for the Indians, who won their final six home games to stay with the wildcard leaders. The Indians lead Texas by one game for the second wild-card slot. They are one game behind Tampa Bay for the top spot. AngELS 3, ATHLETiCS 1 In Anaheim, Calif., Jered Weaver pitched seven innings of five-hit ball, Josh Hamilton drove in two runs and the Los Angeles Angels did a bit more damage to Oakland’s homefield playoff hopes. Erick Aybar had three hits in the Angels’ final home game of their disappointing season. Dan Straily (10-8) allowed seven hits while pitching into the seventh inning of his first loss since Aug. 17 for the AL West champion A’s. OriOLES 9, BLUE JAYS 5 In Baltimore, Ryan Flaherty hit a pair of two-run homers, Jonathan Schoop had a solo shot in his big league debut and the Orioles beat Toronto to snap a six-game skid and clinch their second straight winning season. Steve Pearce also homered for Baltimore and Chris Davis doubled in a run to increase his RBI total to 137, tied with Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera for the major league lead. MArinErS 6, rOYALS 0 In Seattle, Hisashi Iwakuma pitched eight scoreless innings and Mike Zunino homered twice to lead the Seattle Mariners to a 6-0 win against Kansas City, ending the Royals’ playoff hopes Wednesday night. The Royals entered Wednesday four games behind Cleveland for the second wild-card berth with five games to play.

Cardinals sweep Nats to close in on title

The Associated Press

ST. LOUIS — Rookie Shelby Miller won his 15th game, and Yadier Molina had the go-ahead hit for St. Louis, which wrapped up Cardinals 4 a three-game sweep of Washington and Nationals 1 moved another step closer to the NL Central title with a 4-1 victory Wednesday. Jordan Zimmermann (19-9) missed his only shot at 20 wins, allowing four runs in seven innings. The Nationals had five hits one day after breaking up rookie Michael Wacha’s bid for a nohitter with two outs in the ninth inning. METS 1, rEDS 0 In Cincinnati, Daisuke Matsuzaka scattered four hits in 7⅔ innings to win his third consecutive start, outdueling the Reds’ Mat Latos. Eric Young Jr. drove in the only run for the Mets, who won two of three in the series to further dampen Cincinnati’s hopes of hosting the NL wild-card playoff game on Tuesday. Matsuzaka (3-3) allowed two walks and hit a batter. He struck out six and evened his record after three losses and a no-decision in his first four starts.

CUBS 4, PirATES 2 In Chicago, Darnell McDonald hit a three-run homer to lead the Cubs to the win that really hurt Pittsburgh’s hopes of winning the NL Central. With three games remaining in the regular season for each team, the Pirates trail division-leading St. Louis by three games. The Pirates, who already have clinched a playoff spot, hold a onegame lead over Cincinnati for the first wild-card slot. Pittsburgh and the Reds finish up with a three-game set in Cincinnati this weekend. BrEwErS 4, BrAVES 0 In Atlanta, Kyle Lohse pitched a twohitter and Milwaukee overcame Carlos Gomez’s ejection in the first inning. NL East champion Atlanta was shut out for the second time in three nights and has been blanked 17 times, secondmost in the league. After losing three of four, Atlanta has fallen three games behind St. Louis for the NL’s best winning percentage. Lohse (11-10) struck out five and threw just 22 of 89 pitches for balls. Gomez, made it 1-0 in the first with his 23rd homer, but was ejected without touching home plate during a

benches-clearing argument. Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman and reserve catcher Gerald Laird were also ejected. MArLinS 3, PHiLLiES 2 In Miami, Adeiny Hechavarria drove in three runs, including a go-ahead run in the eighth inning, for the Marlins. Hechavarria hit a two-run triple in the second before driving in the run that made it 3-2 on a fielder’s choice. Justin Ruggiano walked and Placido Polanco singled for his third hit in the eighth off Ethan Martin (2-5) before Hechavarria hit a grounder to shortstop Jimmy Rollins, whose throw went wide of catcher Carlos Ruiz allowing Ruggiano to slide in safely. Steve Cishek pitched the ninth for his 33rd save in 35 chances. It was Cishek’s 28th consecutive save setting the team record previously held by Todd Jones. Chad Qualls (5-2) got the final out in the eighth to earn the victory. PADrES 12, DiAMOnDBACKS 2 In San Diego, Ian Kennedy’s solid pitching and offensive production throughout the lineup led the Padres. Kennedy (7-10) struck out seven and allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings while facing his ex-team for the

second time since being acquired by the Padres on July 31. He had a no-decision in their previous meeting. The Padres hit three homers, four batters had at least two RBIs and four batters finished with multiple hits. giAnTS 6, DODgErS 4 In San Francisco, Barry Zito won in what likely was his final hurrah for the Giants, and Pablo Sandoval backed him with a two-run homer. Tony Abreu hit a bases-loaded triple to stake Zito to a quick 3-0 lead in the second, then added an RBI double in the sixth as last year’s World Series champions put themselves in position for a rare home series victory if they can win Thursday night’s rubber game with the NL West champion Dodgers. INTERLEAGUE rED SOX 15, rOCKiES 5 In Denver, Todd Helton homered, doubled and drove in three runs in his final game at Coors Field, but Boston used Will Middlebrooks’ two homers and career-high seven RBIs for the win. Helton also had a sacrifice fly in his Colorado farewell. He is retiring at the end of his 17th season with the Rockies.


In brief

Brady blames self for red-zone woes FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — The New England Patriots are ranked last in the NFL in red-zone performance. And Tom Brady says he’s one of the main culprits. In Sunday’s 23-3 win over Tampa Bay, he failed on three straight plays with the ball at the Buccaneers’ 6-yard line. Two poorly thrown balls to Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins were incompletions. Then Brady threw into coverage where Mark Barron intercepted the ball just inside the goal line. The Patriots’ performance inside the 20 should improve once tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receiver Danny Amendola return. Both are recovering from injuries, but neither indicated Wednesday of whether he would play Sunday.

Can 49ers find a way to handle Rams?

Better with age

By Barry Wilner

The Associated Press

On their way to the Super Bowl last season, the 49ers couldn’t solve one team: The Rams. St. Louis beat San Francisco once and the teams played to a tie, rare blemishes on the 49ers’ record. Jim Harbaugh’s team gets another shot at the Rams on Thursday night, and the 49ers (No. 12 in the AP Pro32) are 3-point favorites over No. 23 St. Louis. Coming off successive losses in which their offense was awful, the 49ers are in turmoil. Linebacker Aldon Smith is taking a leave of absence to deal with personal problems. At least in a short week, they have no choice but to concentrate heavily on football. “I think it’s a distraction to whoever wants to think about it, to whoever wants to pay attention to it,” cornerback Carlos Rogers said. “When I get out there on the field and play, I’m thinking about playing whatever team, I’m not thinking about Aldon and whatever situation went on with him.” Pretty good advice, especially facing Jeff Fisher’s Rams, who also come off a poor outing. One of the NFL’s top coaches for two decades, Fisher is likely to have St. Louis ready for the defending NFC West champs. “We’ve been on the losing end of a lot of games, this organization has,” Fisher said. “Now last year, we got our feet back on the map, but I don’t think there’s a rivalry yet. It’s a division opponent. It’s a big challenge for us on a short week, but I don’t necessarily see it as a rivalry yet. Hopefully, it will become one.” This game could help do that. 49ERS, 20-16

Bucs bench QB Freeman TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have benched Josh Freeman and replaced him with rookie Mike Glennon. The move Wednesday came two days after coach Greg Schiano insisted Freeman remain the starter because he gives the team the best chance to win.

Lions’ Bush could play vs. Bears ALLEN PARK, Mich. — Reggie Bush has moved a big step closer to returning to play for the Detroit Lions. Bush practiced Wednesday, a few days after missing a game with a banged-up left knee. He would give the Lions a much-needed boost offensively Sunday against NFC Northleading Chicago.

Hoyer to start again for Browns BEREA, Ohio — Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer will make his second straight start this week against Cincinnati. Filling in for an injured Brandon Weeden, Hoyer led the Browns to a 31-27 win on Sunday at Minnesota. Weeden has not completely recovered from a sprained right thumb.

Britt focused on catching ball NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Titans receiver Kenny Britt says he has a small crack in one of his ribs that won’t stop him from playing — or catching passes — against the New York Jets on Sunday. Britt said Wednesday his struggles are a matter of focus and ensuring he has the ball before starting to run.

Steelers’ Bell ready for debut PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back Le’Veon Bell will make his regular-season debut on Sunday hoping to provide a jolt for his winless team. Bell hasn’t played since spraining his right foot in an exhibition game against Washington on Aug. 19. The Associated Press

Maybe we’re just now seeing Manning in his prime

No. 3 Chicago (plus 2½) at No. 15 Detroit Was tempted to make this a best bet, too. UPSET SPECIAL: BEARS, 26-13

By Arnie Stapleton The Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. eyton Manning is only getting better with age. Those surgical scars on his neck are starting to fade like all those fears that he might never be the same quarterback — or even play again — after his right arm shrank from a damaged nerve in his biceps two years ago. After attacking his rehab as doggedly as he assails defenses, Denver’s 37-year-old quarterback is making it hard to fathom and easy to forget that not so long ago he was missing an entire season and getting fired in Indianapolis. The four-time MVP is off to the best start of his storied 16-year career. Driven by last year’s playoff pratfall, Manning is putting up historic numbers while directing an imaginative offense that’s still working through some growing pains. Here’s the scary part for opponents: Even with so many footballs slipping through his teammates’ hands or going through the uprights after stalled drives, the Broncos (3-0) are averaging 42 points. “I think Peyton’s playing at an all-time [high] right now,” said Philadelphia coach Chip Kelly, whose Eagles (1-2) visit Denver on Sunday. “You couple him being at the top of his game and then give him the weapons that he has, it’s a pretty dangerous formula to go against.” The 2013 Rocky Mountain version of the “Fearsome Foursome” is Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Wes Welker and


Julius Thomas, who have collected 72 catches for 943 yards and 11 TDs already. “Usually you have a main guy as part of the offense, a star that you can load up and take him away,” Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis said. “Peyton makes you defend the field.” Manning is the first quarterback in NFL history to collect a dozen touchdown throws in the first three weeks of the season, and his off-the-charts passer rating of 134.7 is way above the career high of 121.1 he set in his pinnacle 2004 season, when he threw for 49 TDs. Manning was masterful Monday night in completing a career-high 86.5 percent of his passes in Denver’s wipeout of Oakland. Manning, though, finds no time in his no-nonsense schedule to contemplate just how special this start is. “This is a new season. It’s one week at a time,” he said. “I don’t have a great comparison to other years. But guys are making good plays in the passing game and we are doing a good job getting yards after the catch.” Take Decker’s 61-yard gain Monday night. He runs an 18-yard curl and there’s a 6-inch window for Manning, who delivers a frozen rope of a throw that seems to stun even Decker, who hesitates for a split second before turning upfield for a 61-yard gain. “I was on him like a shadow,” Raiders cornerback Mike Jenkins said. “I actually felt the ball go across my fingers. … He’s a genius.” Just imagine him in his prime? Are you kidding? In many ways, it’s right here, right now.


Manning’s work ethic keeps him in tip-top shape and his mental mastery of the game keeps getting better. “I’d like to think that any player would use the experience from the year before to his advantage, to learn what to do against certain defenses, to learn what not to do,” Manning said. “With being able to play a lot, you certainly gain great experience.” He’s putting that to use like never before, too. “The guy is just awesome,” Jenkins said. “I’ve never seen anything like him. It is very frustrating for you to be in the right spot and he still squeezes the ball in for a great throw. There’s not too much you can do about that. Most games you play, that’s your ball. But it’s Peyton Manning.” Or, Peyton Manning 2.0. He bounced back last year from a series of neck injuries and surgeries that sidelined him in 2011, an all-too-familiar ordeal for the first family of football after his older brother, Cooper, saw his football dreams dashed because of a spinal condition. Family patriarch Archie Manning said Peyton “never took football for granted because of what happened to Cooper.” “I think he always knew he was fortunate in regard to health. But he wasn’t ready for his career to be over, not like that. Not four surgeries and having to leave the place where he had been so long. He just didn’t want it to end right there,” Archie Manning said. “So, I think the good Lord looked down on him there and allowed him to play some more football, so we are grateful for that.”

Crawford, Howard among players on Olympic bubble By Larry Lage

The Associated Press

DETROIT — When the NHL season begins, a lot of players will begin tryouts of sorts for their Olympic teams. Sidney Crosby, of course, is a lock to play for the defending champion Canadians, assuming he stays healthy while playing for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Patrick Kane, likewise, has a secure spot after helping the U.S. win silver in 2010 — if he isn’t injured in a Chicago Blackhawks uniform. But for some players in the league such as Corey Crawford and Jimmy Howard, they won’t be only playing for the Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings early in the season. The goalies are also

vying for the honor of being between the pipes at the Sochi Games in less than five months. Crawford insisted earning a spot on Canada’s team is not on his mind. “That only puts more pressure on myself,” he said after a preseason game in Detroit. “I just want to worry about what I have to do for our team. To spend any extra time thinking about the Olympic team would be a waste of a time.” Crawford was one of five goaltenders invited to Hockey Canada’s camp last month. He was joined by Vancouver’s Roberto Luongo, Montreal’s Carey Price, Phoenix’s Mike Smith and Washington’s Braden Holtby. Three of them will

suit up for the Canadians. “It’s going to be a huge three months for everybody that’s in consideration because that’s when a lot of guys will make the team — or not,” said Red Wings coach Mike Babcock, who will be back on Canada’s bench after leading the team to gold at the Vancouver Games. Howard plans to focus on helping the Red Wings win, hoping that helps him play for the U.S. when the NHL takes a break in February. “In the back of my mind, I’ll know that I’ll also be auditioning for this team,” Howard said last month in Arlington, Va., at the U.S. hockey camp. “It’ll make the stakes higher for every single game, and I like that.”

Howard acknowledged he will keep tabs on his competition — Los Angeles’ Jonathan Quick, Buffalo’s Ryan Miller, Ottawa’s Craig Anderson and New Jersey’s Cory Schneider — knowing they’re vying for one of three spots. “Everybody will sort of be watching it,” Howard said. “But I’m not going to read into it too much. You just have to worry about your own game, take care of your business and make it difficult on the staff picking the team.” Each country in the tournament will have some tough choices to make when finalizing their 25-man teams, but the picks and snubs will be closely watched in Canada and might create a bit of a buzz in the U.S. before the Dec. 31 deadline to submit rosters.

THE NEW MEXICAN Thursday, September 26, 2013



Dear Tom and Ray:

I write this letter as the rain pecks away on the windshield of my surveillance van. I’m a private eye. I live in Nebraska. I do a fair amount of surveillance, for which I use a gunmetal-gray, 1999 Chrysler Town & Country van. I use the van to surveil insurance fraudsters with bad backs, to track down cattle rustlers, to serve court papers, to conduct interviews with witnesses to malfeasance, mayhem and murders, and to shadow desperate housewives slinking over to the cheating

and Country.

side of town. The Case: I’ve got a problem. Not a big problem, as problems go. It’s more like a nuisance, like when your girlfriend keeps asking if you are married and your wife keeps asking if you have a girlfriend. But I digress. Here’s the deal. As I’m driving my surveillance van down the road, on occasion my gauges will flatline. It happens every so often. Usually the next day they (the gauges) will perk back to life, or they may jump to life while I’m barreling down the road after some knothead running from a repo. However, it should be noted that the warning lights continue to work during that time. What is odd, and perhaps it is the clue to the whole caper -- or perhaps just a red herring -- the ABS warning light will come ON when the gauges flatline, and the ABS warning light will then turn OFF when the gauges return to life. It is a mystery. So, I came to the best car dicks I know to solve this caper. Better than my local shade-tree shyster, who not only has a boat, but he also has a Harley. If you need a retainer, I warn you, work has been slow. Slower than a turtle wearing a tourniquet. Slower than a gazelle with gout. Slower than my brother-in-law on Monday morning. Slower than a -- well, you get the picture. -- Steve TOM: We were working the late shift at the garage, Steve. And this doll walks in. She’s got a ‘99 Town

jam. Her dashboard takes a powder every so often. Just like yours. TOM: And the goose she’s married to doesn’t know what to do, so he sends her to us. She’s lucky we’re gumshoes and not hatchet men. RAY: Anyway, we listen to her sob story, and give her car the up and down. TOM: My brother gets in, and sure enough, the instrument cluster has taken it on the heel and toe. Looks fried. RAY: So I give it some serious chin music. I whack it with both fists on top of the dashboard, and, whadda ya know? It does a Lazarus -- comes back to life. All lit up. TOM: So he tells the dame, “You got a busted cluster, Buster.” RAY: And she says: “Why’d you smack my dashboard? And don’t call me Buster.” TOM: So I tell her that sometimes a bad connection on the instrument cluster’s printed circuit board can cause intermittent failure like that. Sometimes by whacking it, you can get it to come back to life temporarily, confirming that the problem is right there, in the cluster. RAY: And besides, I tell her, even if you don’t get it to come back to life, giving it a hard shot in the beezer will make you feel a whole lot better. TOM: Yeah, I tell her, if you really

So I tell her, look, if it’s not the instrument cluster, it could be a bad body control module, which is a little computer that controls things like lights and interior functions. But in her case, I was pretty sure it was the instrument cluster. TOM: So she asks how much cabbage we’re talking about. RAY: Depends, I say. If you can find a cat willing to take out the cluster and look for cracked solder joints on the circuit board and solder ‘em back together, it could be an hour’s work. But you might not find someone willing or able to do that. TOM: Another option is to grab up a used one from a junk yard. But, of course, that one could be halfway to the big sleep itself. You never know. RAY: If you want to replace it with a new cluster, that’ll definitely fix it, but you’re looking at big money. A bunch of C’s. South of a grand, but maybe not by much. TOM: “That’s a lotta spinach,” she says. “I may have to put this thing in the wooden kimono, along with my deadbeat husband.” RAY: We nodded. “Good luck, ma’am,” I said. We never saw the broad again. So we’ll say the same to you. Good luck, Steve. And be careful out there.
