ALBUQUERQUE — Frustrated by flagging enrollment in the state’s online insurance marketplace and the problems that have suppressed it, the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange board on Friday held informal discussions about extending the open enrollment period set to close in a month. “We’re trying to enroll as many people as possible, and we had glitches in the federal system,” said the board’s chairman, Dr. J.R. Damron of Santa Fe. “It’s been pretty dysfunctional on the federal side for getting people signed up.” The deadline to meet the requirement for

The state Health Department announced Friday it plans to license more nonprofit producers to grow marijuana for the 10,600 patients enrolled in its Medical Cannabis Program, and it also will increase the number of plants licensed producers can grow. The change follows years of complaints from patients and would-be producers that the state’s 23 licensed growers were not producing enough cannabis to meet demand. It also comes on the heels of the Health Department’s own survey, released last fall, that indicated only about 20 percent of the demand for medical marijuana is being met. The agency proposes to add 12 more non-

Group: New evidence in capital arson case AUSTIN, Texas — The Innocence Project argued Friday that newly discovered documents undermine the credibility of a key witness against a Texas man executed for the deaths of his three children based in part on arson evidence that has since been deemed faulty. The New York-based nonprofit said it has discovered a handwritten note that suggests a prosecutor gave a lesser charge to jailhouse informant Johnny Webb, who testified that Cameron Todd Willingham told Webb he killed his daughters in 1991. That would contradict claims made at trial by Webb and prosecutor John Jackson that Webb did not receive consideration for his testimony.

Police say the alleged gunman was arrested while running from the scene, and a woman involved in the dispute turned herself in later in the day. The shooting happened at Tax City Tax Service on the city’s east side. Deputy Police Chief Rodney Johnson said the woman became upset when her tax refund wasn’t ready Friday. Johnson said the man with her pulled a gun and started shooting. The security guard was wounded, as were three other employees. One victim was in critical condition, while the other three were listed in serious condition. The Associated Press

Flaws found in Hanford tanks
Documents reveal defects in newer units By Nicholas K. Geranios The Associated Press
SPOKANE, Wash. here are “significant construction flaws” in some newer, double-walled storage tanks at Washington state’s Hanford nuclear waste complex, which could lead to additional leaks, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. Those tanks hold some of the worst radioactive waste at the nation’s most contaminated nuclear site. One of the 28 giant underground tanks was found to be leaking in 2012. But subsequent surveys of other double-walled tanks performed for the U.S. Department of Energy by one of its Hanford contractors found at least six shared defects with the leaking tank that could lead to future leaks, the documents said. Thirteen additional tanks also might be compromised, according to the documents. Questions about the storage tanks jeopardize efforts to clean up radioactive waste at the southeastern Washington site. Those efforts already cost taxpayers about $2 billion a year. “It is time for the Department [of Energy] to stop hiding the ball and pretending that the situation at Hanford is being effectively managed,” Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., wrote Friday in a letter to Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz. Energy Department officials in Richland said the agency continues to make thorough inspections of the tanks, and has increased the frequency of those inspections. “They used to be reviewed every five to seven years,” said Tom

Fletcher, the Energy Department’s assistant manager for tank farms. “Now we are moving to a threeyear time frame.” The department is in the process of inspecting the final eight doublewalled tanks at Hanford that have not been analyzed since the leak was detected in late 2012, Fletcher said Friday. No new leaks have been found, he said. “If there are changes or improvements we need to make in the program, based on what we learn, to make sure we capture the risks that exist on the tank farms, we will make them,” Fletcher said. He added the Energy Department continues to examine the benefits of building new storage tanks at Hanford. Tom Carpenter of the citizen watchdog group Hanford Challenge said he wasn’t surprised that more of the double-walled tanks are in danger of leaking. “These tanks have an engineered design life, and we are reaching the end,” Carpenter said. “It’s bad planning that they don’t have new tanks up and running.” While new tanks are expensive, cleaning up a leak is more expensive, he added. “The price for cleaning up the environment once this stuff gets out there is incalculable.” Hanford contains some 53 million gallons of high-level radioactive wastes from the production of plutonium for nuclear weapons. They are stored in 177 underground storage tanks, many of which date back to World War II and are single-walled models that have leaked. The 28 double-walled tanks were built from the 1960s to the 1980s. Current plans call for transferring wastes from leaking singlewalled tanks to the newer and bigger double-walled tanks, where
the waste will be stored while a $13 billion plant for treating the waste is constructed. But the treatment plant is plagued with design problems and construction has stalled. The situation did not appear dire until the news in October 2012 that the oldest of the double-walled tanks, called AY-102, had leaked, becoming the first of those 28 tanks to do so. At the time, the Energy Department blamed construction problems with this particular tank for the leak and said it “seems unlikely” that the other doublewalled tanks would leak. However, Wyden said engineering reviews of six other doublewalled tanks “found significant construction flaws similar to those at the leaking tank.” Those six tanks contain about 5 million gallons of radioactive wastes, wrote Wyden, who until recently was chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. For instance, one tank was found to have bulging “in the primary and secondary bottoms,” according to the documents obtained through Wyden’s office. The tank also had a high number of welds that were rejected by inspectors and done again during its construction. Additionally, a review of 13 other double-walled tanks found they were in better shape than the leaker. “But construction issues identified for these tanks, such as weld rejection rates, are cause for concern” and raise “uncertainty of long-term tank integrity,” Wyden wrote. That means that 20 of the 28 double-walled tanks at Hanford raise some level of concern. Wyden said the Energy Department should take a new look at proposals by the governors of Washington and Oregon to build new storage tanks at Hanford.
ATLANTA — Joe Six-Pack is getting some love again. MillerCoors and Anheuser-Busch InBev, after years of focusing on craft ales, ciders and imports, are paying more attention to the working man’s drink of choice: cheap beer. The two brewers, which account for threequarters of the U.S. beer industry, will boost marketing this year for economy brands such as Keystone Light and Busch Light. During the televised Nascar race on Sunday, MillerCoors will begin airing the first national advertising for Keystone Light since 2011. A similar campaign for Miller High Life, which calls itself the “champagne of beers,” starts in April. AB InBev will expand its marketing for Busch to year-round and has introduced a fuller flavored version called Busch Signature Copper Lager. “Regular guys like to drink beer, there’s no doubt about it,” MillerCoors Chief Marketing Officer Andy England said in an interview. “We’ve struggled with those brands a little bit.” As persistent unemployment after the recession left blue-collar workers with less money for beer, brewers shifted resources to higher-margin brands such as MillerCoors’s Blue Moon and Leuven, Belgium-based AB InBev’s Bud Light Lime. As the economy rebounds, companies are racing to win with a crowd that is among the most loyal and thirsty of beer drinkers. AB InBev recently reached its highest market share ever for the segment after a two-year turnaround, said Edison Yu, the company’s vice president for value brands. A new marketing campaign for Busch will celebrate “everyday” heroes, he said in an e-mailed statement. Economy beers sell for about $15 a case, compared with $20 a case for premium offerings such as Bud Light and Coors Light, according to IRI, a Chicago-based researcher. Super-premium brands like Michelob Ultra sell for about $25 a case. U.S. beer consumption will be little changed this year after sales volume declined in four of the past five years, according to a report Wednesday by Moody’s Investors Service Inc. The drops were spurred by high unemployment, a move to more flavorful cocktails by baby boomers and young drinkers alike, and higher prices for value beers to help profit margins, the firm said. Cheap-beer loyalists aren’t the only customers MillerCoors wants to reach. Craft-beer drinkers also frequently purchase economy brands to supplement their favorite brands, according to Nielsen.

Two brewers want to woo Joe Six-Pack
Fighters return from Syria radicalized BISARIYEH, Lebanon — The once-tranquil, religiously mixed village of Bisariyeh is seething: Two of its young men who fought alongside the rebels in Syria recently returned home radicalized and staged suicide bombings in Lebanon. The phenomenon is being watched anxiously across the Mideast, particularly in Saudi Arabia, where authorities are moving decisively to prevent citizens from going off to fight in Syria. The developments illustrate how the Syrian war is sending dangerous ripples across a highly combustible region and sparking fears that jihadis will come home with dangerous ideas and turn their weapons against their own countries. In Lebanon, the social fabric of towns and villages across the country is being torn by conflicting loyalties and a wave of bombings carried out by Sunni extremists in retaliation for the Iranian-backed Shiite group Hezbollah’s military support of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Ukrainian cities reflect nation’s deep divisions Contrasts recall the past as well as present chaos By Alison Smale
The New York Times
DONETSK, Ukraine — The silverhaired mayor of this raw mining city in eastern Ukraine had just delivered a pep talk to about 100 uniformed police officers, beseeching them to ensure law and order in these turbulent times of revolution, when a bearded man in dark glasses took the microphone. “If we want peace,” the man proclaimed, “we have to get ready for war!” The mayor, Alexander Lukyanchenko, 67, shot back: “And tell me, just who are you planning to fight?” The exchange between the thirdterm mayor, dapper in a fine dark blue suit, and the rugged speaker, who identified himself as “commander” of a previously unknown group, the East-
ern Front, exposed the jangled nerves in this city of 1 million and the tough task facing leaders who know they must keep workers’ pay, pensions and supplies flowing even as they feel their hold on power waning. Hundreds of miles to the west, the mayor of Lviv, Andriy Sadovy, has the same worries as Lukyanchenko. But of the two cities’ mayors, Sadovy, 45, a political independent elected twice since 2006, seems to hold the better cards. He apparently has had no trouble in uniting those police officers who are still on the job with civilian volunteers to form a force of about 2,000 people who patrol the streets at night and handle traffic. And Sadovy made time to mourn at least one of the 13 protesters from the Lviv region who were killed in Kiev. Sadovy acted swiftly to proclaim Russian-language days in Lviv after the Ukrainian Parliament passed a widely criticized law that stripped Russian of its official status, infuriating Russian

Obama warns Russia about Crimea By Dalton Bennet and Karl Ritter The Associated Press
SEVASTOPOL, Ukraine — Armed men described as Russian troops took control of key airports in Crimea on Friday and Russian transport planes flew into the strategic region, Ukrainian officials said, an ominous sign of the Kremlin’s iron hand in Ukraine. President Barack Obama bluntly warned Moscow “there will be costs” if it intervenes militarily. The sudden arrival of men in military uniforms patrolling key strategic facilities prompted Ukraine to accuse Russia of a “military invasion and occupation” — a claim that brought an alarming new dimension to the crisis. In a hastily arranged statement delivered from the White House, Obama called on Russia
to respect the independence and territory of Ukraine and not try to take advantage of its neighbor, which is undergoing political upheaval. “Any violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing,” Obama said. “Just days after the world came to Russia for the Olympic Games, that would invite the condemnation of nations around the world,” Obama said. “The United States will stand with the international community in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in Ukraine.” Earlier Friday, Ukraine’s fugitive president resurfaced in Russia to deliver a defiant condemnation of what he called a “bandit coup.” Appearing for the first time since fleeing Ukraine last week, Viktor Yanukovych struck a tone both of bluster and cau-
tion — vowing to “keep fighting for the future of Ukraine,” while ruling out seeking Russian military help. “Any military action in this situation is unacceptable,” Yanukovych told reporters in the southern city of Rostov-on-Don, near the border with Ukraine. Then, seeking to make a firm point, he tried — and failed — to break a pen. At the United Nations, the Ukrainian ambassador, Yuriy Sergeyev, said that 10 Russian transport aircraft and 11 attack helicopters had arrived in Crimea illegally, and that Russian troops had taken control of two airports in Crimea. He described the gunmen posted outside the two airports as Russian armed forces as well as “unspecified” units. “Some of them identified themselves as Russians,” Sergeyev said.
ern Ukrainians learned in November that their now fugitive president, Viktor Yanukovych, had spurned an association agreement with the European Union, they exploded in revolt. By late January, they had declared Lviv independent of central authority — “Free City of a Free People,” as the slogan reads on the huge Ukrainian flag now hanging on the ancient Town Hall. With Yanukovych’s flight from Ukraine last weekend, the revolt succeeded in disposing of the man most people — even here in his hometown, Donetsk — denounce as murderous and extremely corrupt. But Yanukovych’s departure has left a power vacuum, with quarreling leaders in Kiev taking power on a tidal wave of hurriedly passed laws and an economy
reportedly edging closer to bankruptcy. The contrast in the two cities lies not just in the present, but also in their pasts. Lviv — Lvov in Russian, Lemberg in German — pitched for centuries between Polish, Hapsburg, Czarist, Nazi and Soviet rule before the Soviet Union collapsed and Ukraine, a country of 46 million, became independent in 1991. The Soviet Union was, in effect, an interlude, with the last nationalist fighters quashed only in the 1950s. Donetsk, by contrast, was founded only in 1869, just an hour’s drive from Russia. It was set up under the czars and reputedly populated with thousands of prisoners released from Siberia to dig coal shafts here. Its architecture is profoundly Soviet; a huge Lenin statue is now a rallying point for fuming residents, mostly elderly men, who vent about “fascists” from western Ukraine. Streets still bear names like “50 Years of the USSR,” which would count as a relic even in Moscow.

Leak: Salt deposits settle around, entomb nuclear waste containers Continued from Page A-1 authorities investigate the cause and attempt to determine the health effects on the employees. The mishap also has raised questions about a cornerstone of the Department of Energy’s $5 billiona-year program for cleaning up waste scattered across the country from decades of nuclear bomb making. With operations at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant on hold, so are all shipments, including the last of nearly 4,000 barrels of toxic waste that Los Alamos National Laboratory has been ordered to remove from its campus by the end of June. Other waste from labs in Idaho, Illinois and South Carolina is also without a home while operations are halted. The dilemma about what to do with the nuclear waste is highly politicized. The government spent an estimated $15 billion on a proposed nuclear waste dump at Nevada’s Yucca Mountain that has not been completed. The Yucca site is fiercely opposed by Nevada lawmakers, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. By contrast, New Mexico’s congressional delegation has largely supported the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, which has been accepting waste since 1999 and employs about 650 people. The site is limited by law to plutonium waste from making weapons, but experts say salt beds at the site may be suitable for radioactive waste from commercial reactors. In an example of the dilemma that communities nationwide face over
A member of the community speaks of the radiation leak during a meeting Monday in Carlsbad. Sen. Tom Udall says he will ask the Environmental Protection Agency to send air monitors to southeastern New Mexico following a radiation release from the federal government’s underground nuclear waste dump in Carlsbad. JERI CLAUSING/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
nuclear waste, documents obtained Friday by The Associated Press found that there are “significant construction flaws” in some storage tanks at Washington state’s Hanford nuclear waste complex. Taxpayers spend about $2 billion a year to clean up radioactive waste at the site. Many scientists consider the unique geology of the New Mexico location to be ideal for disposing of tainted materials like tools, gloves, glasses and protective suits. Over decades, with
pressure from the ground above, the salt deposits settle around the containers and entomb them. Edwin Lyman, a nuclear expert at the watchdog group Union of Concerned Scientists, said the accident could curb enthusiasm on Capitol Hill for the underground site. “I think from a political standpoint, this is going to put a damper on some of the more ambitious expansion plans,” he said. “The narrative is that facility is super safe. Now that they’ve
had a serious incident, that’s no longer valid.” Officials said they don’t yet know what doses of radioactive material the workers absorbed, and that it’s too soon to speculate on what the health effects might be. Tests showed traces of the element americium. Once in the body, americium tends to concentrate in the bone, liver and muscles. It can stay in the body for decades and continue to expose surrounding tissues to radiation, increasing a person’s chance of developing cancer. On Feb. 5, the mine was shut and six workers were sent to the hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation after a truck hauling salt caught fire. Nine days later, a radiation alert activated in the area where newly arrived waste was being stored. Preliminary tests show 13 workers suffered some radiation exposure, and monitors as far as half a mile away have since detected elevated levels of plutonium and americium in the air. Ground and water samples are being analyzed. Officials said they’re confident the incidents are unrelated. And while they emphasize that the levels detected off-site are no more harmful than a dental X-ray, they have not been able to go underground and have not directly answered questions about how contaminated the tunnels might be. Don Hancock, director of the Nuclear Waste Safety program at the Southwest Research and Information Center, said the contamination levels will depend on the workers’ proximity
Health: 17K completed enrollment but didn’t buy Continued from Page A-1 having health insurance under the federal Affordable Care Act is April 1, and those without insurance who want coverage by then must enroll by March 15. Anyone who misses the deadline will face tax penalties — as well as months of waiting until the next open enrollment period begins in the fall. Through the end of January, New Mexico residents had bought 11,620 individual insurance plans through the federal online marketplace, according to Mike Nuñez, interim chief executive officer of the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange. Nuñez blamed the sluggish start of the federal exchange’s Web portal, healthcare.gov, for slowing New Mexico’s enrollment progress and forcing the state exchange to lower its enrollment expectations for 2014 to about 50,000 from the 83,000 originally forecast. The New Mexico exchange is relying on the federal site for individual enrollment until that portion of the state exchange comes online Oct. 1. Nuñez said an additional 17,000 potential customers had completed every step in the enrollment process except buying a policy, which led the board to discuss what’s keeping them at the doorstep without crossing the threshold.
The board lamented that the clunky rollout of “Obamacare” has made it difficult for consumers to follow through with the requirements of the new law. But Friday’s meeting also spotlighted snags that consumers have encountered with insurance companies and the state’s coordination of information with the federal government. Board member Dr. Deane Waldman of Albuquerque said insurance companies participating in the exchange have not made it easy for consumers to search whether the plan they’re buying includes their preferred doctors. “They can’t find out,” he said, “and what they find out is often erroneous.” That has led to complaints from consumers who “feel duped” after they’ve bought a policy and their doctor isn’t included in the network of providers, he added. “The consumers will only buy products that they want and need, and if the health exchange does not offer that, we’re not going to sell it,” Waldman said. Representatives of the health exchange’s round-the-clock call center in Alamogordo said they’ve encountered plenty of consumer frustration as well. The call center was designed to shepherd consumers’ questions to someone who can answer them with authority — most often someone with the federal government. But over and over, consumer calls
handed off to the federal government are looped back to Alamogordo because the people manning the federal phone lines are confused by New Mexico’s hybrid exchange — with group plans managed by the state and individual plans still temporarily under federal auspices. “We get identified as a state-based exchange, and calls continue to get returned to us even though the Federal Facilitated Marketplace is taking care of our individual [plans],” Nuñez said, “so this misunderstanding continues to occur.” More frustrating is the ongoing confusion in New Mexico and nationally over Medicaid eligibility, which has left untold numbers of consumers in limbo. Nuñez and Sidonie Squire, New Mexico’s Cabinet secretary for the Human Services Department, acknowledged an endless loop that frustrates would-be enrollees: Often they are informed by the exchange that they qualify for Medicaid and must follow that process for coverage, only to be told later by Human Services that they don’t qualify. They are then referred back to the exchange. “At present, there’s people working on it, but no solution, to my knowledge,” Nuñez said. Squire blamed the federal government. In light of the enrollment roadblocks reported by consumers, Damron took
the board’s temperature Friday about the possibility of leaving enrollment through the New Mexico exchange open throughout 2014. He got a warm response. Board member Aaron Ezekiel, director of Affordable Care Act implementation at the state’s Office of the Superintendent of Insurance, said keeping enrollment open for the first two years that the new law is in effect would be beneficial to the goal of enrolling as many people as possible. “We are absolutely going to fight for every single day of open enrollment we can get,” he said. Ezekiel said he believes the state could win a jurisdictional fight with the federal government over the terms of the open enrollment period, but legal questions abound. It could require clearance by the federal government, the state health exchange board and New Mexico’s superintendent of insurance. “If we don’t have the numbers we need yet, and if we’ve lost a few months because of the dysfunctional federal exchange,” Ezekiel said, “I feel like they owe us two months at the minimum.” Contact Patrick Malone at 986-3017 or email@example.com.

going on is discrimination.” Georgia and Indiana adopted some of the first voter ID laws. This year, in addition to the Texas law, new or stricter photo-identification voting laws take effect in Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Tennessee and Virginia. Pennsylvania and Wisconsin have approved similar action, but those measures are on hold because of court challenges. In Mississippi, black lawmakers have asked Attorney General Eric Holder to block their state’s law. When Arkansas held a special legislative election in January, dozens of mail-in absentee votes were thrown out after voters failed to include a copy of their photo ID with their ballot. The Arkansas law, passed over Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe’s veto, did not address absentee voting, and the GOP-controlled Legislature is not expected to take it up during the 2014 session. The law allows voters without photo ID to cast a provisional ballot, but the ballot will not be counted unless they show identification by the Monday after the election. “This is in no way an effort to suppress any valid vote,” said GOP state Rep. Andy Mayberry, who supported the

law. “It’s a measure to help secure the credibility of our elections.” Arkansas voters will have two important races to decide this year. Sen. Mark Pryor, a Democrat, is expected to face an aggressive challenge from Republican Rep. Tom Cotton. A competitive contest for governor is also unfolding, with Republican former Rep. Asa Hutchinson likely to run against Democrat Mike Ross. The higher-than-normal turnout expected for the midterm election will only compound the problems that emerged during the January election, according to Craighead County Election
Commission Chairman Scott McDaniel, a Democrat. “I foresee a great number, an unacceptable number of absentee voters to be disenfranchised because of this whole deal, and I don’t like it,” McDaniel said. Virginia could be particularly confusing. Majority Republicans enacted a law requiring proof of identification, but no photo, in 2012. Last year, they amended the law to require photo ID to vote but set the effective date for the new law as July 1. Virginia’s primary is June 10, when voters will not be required to present a photo. But in November, they will.
to the material. “If you’re standing by a 55-gallon drum of plutonium and americium, not much problem. But when you get even a small portion of what’s in that drum in the air and you breathe it in, then you do have a problem,” he said. Government officials, politicians, the contractors that run the mine and local officials all say it is too soon to speculate on what the short- or long-term impacts of the shutdown might be, or where else the toxic waste would go. “A lot of people are just jumping up and down and wanting us to shut down,” said Farok Sharif, president of the Nuclear Waste Partnership that runs the site. “But that’s not the case here. We’ve designed this facility to look at these types of accidents, and we’ve planned on making sure that we continue to protect our employees and we protect the environment. And our system worked as designed.” Per Peterson, a professor of nuclear engineering at the University of California who served on a presidential panel on nuclear waste, said that from what he has read, the radiation exposure suffered by the plant workers was small enough not to be a major health risk. But he said the nation has a responsibility to clean up contaminated material from the historical U.S. program to make nuclear weapons. “It would almost be a national tragedy if we were to derail cleanup of the legacy nuclear weapons complex because of this accident,” he said.
Growers: Number of qualifying conditions now at 19 Continued from Page A-1 profit producers and increase the number of plants each is allowed to grow from a total of 150 — including plants and seedlings — to 150 mature plants, plus up to 300 seedlings. “We take the needs of medical cannabis patients very seriously,” department Secretary Retta Ward said in a written statement Friday. “We now have a plan to meet current and future patient needs.” The statement also said Ward has accepted the Medical Cannabis Advisory Board’s recommendation to add Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease to the list of conditions that qualify patients to use medical marijuana, bringing the total number of qualifying conditions to 19. The proposed changes won’t take effect until after a public hearing occurs “sometime this spring,” said the statement, issued late Friday. The department will begin accepting applications from potential producers after the hearing. It has been several years since the agency has accepted new applications from producers. Health Department spokesman Kenny Vigil said Friday he couldn’t be more specific about the date of the hearing, but he said the time and place of the hearing and written details of the proposed changes to the Medical Cannabis Program will be made public 30 days before the hearing. Department lawyers are scheduled to appear in District Court next Friday to address motions in a lawsuit filed against the agency in January by a man who has been trying to obtain a license to become a nonprofit cannabis producer for the program since 2009. In his complaint, Mark Springer asks the court to “compel the Secretary of the New Mexico Department of Health to ensure a reasonably sufficient cannabis supply for the demand of qualified patients to treat their debilitating conditions.” A handful of other would-be producers joined in another lawsuit against the department that alleges, among other things, that the application process for becoming a producer is so vague and arbitrary it deprives applicants of their due process rights. That case, filed in 2011, continues to work its way through the court. Contact Phaedra Haywood at 986-3068 or phaywood@ sfnewmexican.com.

Documents show Clintons’ health care concerns National Archives releases 4,000 pages from ex-president’s administration

The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Bill Clinton’s aides revealed concern early in his presidency about the health care overhaul effort led by his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and later about what they saw as a need to soften her image, according to documents released Friday. Mrs. Clinton now is a potential 2016 presidential contender. The National Archives released about 4,000 pages of previously confidential documents involving the former president’s administration, providing a glimpse into the ultimately unsuccessful struggles of his health care task force, led by the first lady, and other Clinton priorities such as the U.S. economy and a major trade agreement. Hillary Clinton’s potential White House campaign has increased interest in Clinton Presidential Library documents from her husband’s administration during the 1990s and her own decades in public service. A former secretary of state and New York senator, Mrs. Clinton is the leading Democratic contender to succeed President Barack Obama, though she has not said whether she will run. Friday’s documents included memos related to the former president’s ill-fated health care reform proposal in 1993 and 1994, a plan that failed to win support in Congress and turned into a rallying cry for Repub-

licans in the 1994 midterm elections. As first lady, Hillary Clinton chaired her husband’s health care task force, largely meeting in secret to develop a plan to provide universal health insurance coverage. White House aides expressed initial optimism about her ability to help craft and enact a major overhaul of U.S. health care. “The first lady’s months of meetings with the Congress has produced a significant amount of trust and confidence by the members in her ability to help produce a viable health reform legislative product with the president,” said an undated and unsigned document, which was cataloged with others from April 1993. The document urged quick action, warning that enthusiasm for health reform “will fade over time.” But the documents also showed the growing concerns among Clinton’s fellow Democrats in Congress. Lawmakers,
it said, “going to their home districts for the August break are petrified about having difficult health care reform issues/questions thrown at them.” Administration officials also wanted to distance Hillary Clinton from a staff meeting on the touchy subject of making health care cost projections appear reasonable. Top aides wrote an April 1993 memo saying pessimistic cost-savings projections from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office were

A White House and congressional meeting meant to “align budget assumptions with CBO” would be “all staff,” the memo said, so “we do not believe it appropriate that Mrs. Clinton attend.” The documents also include detailed media strategy memos written as aides tried to soften Mrs. Clinton’s image. Her press secretary, Lisa Caputo, encouraged the Clintons to capitalize on their 20th wedding anniversary as “a wonderful opportunity for Hillary” and also suggested she spend more time doing White House events celebrating first ladies of the past. Placing Clinton in a historical context “may help to round out
her image and make what she is doing seem less extreme or different in the eyes of the media,” Caputo wrote in a lengthy August 1995 memo about courting better press coverage as the president looked toward reelection. It noted the first lady had an “aversion to the national Washington media.” Caputo also proposed the “wild idea” of having Clinton do a guest appearance on a popular sitcom of the day, Home Improvement. As for Clinton himself, by the end of his presidency he showed frustration with his proposed farewell speech to the nation. He told aides that he didn’t think the drafts included enough of his administration’s accomplishments. “Doesn’t anybody care about me?” he asked aides during his final days in office.

Texas AG, friend face off over gay marriage GOP gubernatorial candidate Abbott vows to defend against suit filed by college buddy By Paul J. Weber
The Associated Press
WACO, Texas — When Greg Abbott was paralyzed by a fallen tree in 1984, Mark Phariss flew 500 miles to his friend’s bedside. They were law school pals who swapped stories over dinner, job leads and airport rides, and they still exchange Christmas cards today. Their friendship is now at an extraordinary junction: Phariss, who is gay, filed the Texas lawsuit that a federal judge used this week to strike down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage, which Abbott, Texas’ attorney general, has vowed to defend all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Both chalk it up as a remarkable coincidence. Abbott, a Republican who is running for Texas governor, said Friday he still considers Phariss a friend, even though they’ve lost touch in the past decade.
Phariss, who never told Abbott he was gay, echoed the sentiment — even as Abbott works to uphold what Phariss considers to be discrimination. “If I was only friends with the people I agreed with, particularly in Texas, I wouldn’t have many friends,” Phariss said. Texas joined Oklahoma and Utah as the latest deeply conservative states that want to take its newly quashed gay marriage bans to the Supreme Court. A federal judge in San Antonio ruled Wednesday that Texas had no “rational” reason to deny same-sex couples the right to marry, but declined to enforce his decision pending Abbott’s appeal. Whatever the outcome, the history between Abbott and Phariss adds an intriguing backdrop to one of the most divisive social issues in the U.S. Abbott made clear at a campaign stop Friday he doesn’t approve of Phariss’ quest to wed

his longtime partner. He also expressed no sympathy at the thought of refusing his old friend the right to marry his partner of 16 years, Victor Holmes, an Air Force veteran. “When the constitution is upheld, we’re all winners,” Abbott said. Abbott said he only realized Phariss was gay when his name appeared on the suit, and said Phariss’ sexuality doesn’t change
his opinion of him. “It shows that on some of the hot-button issues of the day, we can have a civil discourse without harsh rhetoric,” Abbott said. Phariss and Abbott first met at Vanderbilt Law School. Phariss described two southerners — Phariss is from Oklahoma — and ideological opposites drawn together by their enjoyment of discussing politics.
After leaving Vanderbilt, Abbott was crushed by a falling tree in Houston while out jogging. He was permanently paralyzed from the waist down, and upon hearing the news, Phariss flew to the hospital and spent two days with Abbott. He bought books to help him pass the time and kept Abbott’s wife and mother company. A year later, Phariss said Abbott helped line up a job offer for him. In the 1990s, when Abbott entered politics and was elected a state judge and later a Texas Supreme Court justice, he flew to San Antonio for a campaign stop. Phariss picked him up at the airport and drove him to meetings and a fundraiser. Phariss, now 54 and an attorney near Dallas, said he was not openly gay at Vanderbilt. He dated girls and didn’t ask out men, and didn’t publicly reveal he was gay until his mid30s. Phariss said that while he and Abbott never discussed gay rights, he never detected hatred from his friend — who
Regional airlines face pilot shortage
Mt.Gox demise spurs Bitcoin review
Report links lousy pay to industry’s problems of filling entry-level jobs
Experts unsure if $400 million stolen or just mishandled
By Joan Lowy
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The nation’s regional airlines are having trouble hiring enough pilots, the government says, suggesting one reason might be that they simply don’t pay enough. A pool of qualified pilots is available, but it’s unclear whether they are willing to work for low entry-level wages, the Government Accountability Office said in a report released Friday. One key economic indicator supports the emergence of a shortage, something regional airlines have complained of and point to as a reason for limiting service to some small communities. But two other indicators suggest the opposite is true, GAO said. Also, two studies reviewed by the GAO “point to the large number of qualified pilots that exist, but may be working abroad, in the military or in another occupation, as evidence that there is adequate supply,” the report said. The U.S. airline industry will need to hire 1,900 to 4,500 new pilots annually over the next 10 years due to an expected surge in retirements of pilots reaching age 65 and increased demand for air travel, the report said. Eleven out of 12 regional airlines failed to meet their hiring targets for entry-level pilots last year, the report said. However, no major airlines were experiencing problems finding pilots. Regional carriers account for about half of all domestic airline flights. One big concern is that communities served only by regional airlines will see their service reduce or eliminated. Five regional airlines told GAO they are already limiting service because of a pilot shortage. Major airlines generally pay significantly higher salaries than regional carriers and frequently hire pilots from regionals. The average starting salary for first officers, also called co-pilots, at regional airlines is $22,400 a year, according to the Air Line Pilots Association. Earlier this month, Wyomingbased Great Lakes Airlines ended service in a handful of small towns, citing a dearth of qualified pilots. The pilots association says Great Lakes pays newly hired first officers $16,500 a year. There are currently 66,000 pilots working for U.S. airlines, but there are 109,465 currently active pilots with a first-class medical certificate who are licensed to fly airline passengers, the report said. An additional 100,000-plus pilots with commercial licenses might at some point choose to pursue an airline career, the report said
is now one of Texas’ most conservative political leaders. “I don’t perceive from him any animus toward gay people,” Phariss said. “I do remember, either in law school or after, [talking] about someone we thought might have been gay — we just kind of speculated whether a certain person might be gay. He didn’t seem to have an issue with that.” Along with other same-sex couples, Phariss and Holmes sued the state after being denied a wedding license on their anniversary last August. Phariss said the last time he and Abbott spoke was in Austin around 2004, shortly after Abbott became attorney general. He said Abbott won’t get his vote for governor this fall because of his politics, but neither will Democrat Wendy Davis, Phariss said, because he doesn’t like the idea of voting against his friend. Phariss compared his continued embrace of Abbott to family members, including his twin sister, who don’t support him but whom he still loves.

By Adam Nagourney and Ian Lovett The New York Times
LOS ANGELES — It’s not quite a month of Sundays — or even a perfect game pitched in the seventh game of a World Series — but something rather extraordinary happened across California on Friday. It rained. Sheets of rain swept across this state pocked with depleted reservoirs, fallow fields and brown hills, providing at the very least a respite from what meteorologists have described as the worst drought Southern California has endured in more than 100 years. The Friday storm, which was expected to stretch into the weekend, followed a shorter storm Wednesday, a back-to-back sousing that forecasters said would produce as much as 10 inches of rain in some parts of the state and heavy snow in the Sierra Nevada. More rain fell in Los Angeles over the course of 12 hours on Friday — 1.53 inches — than had fallen over the last eight months, according to the National Weather Service. The onslaught brought cheers from farmers fearing economic catastrophe, rural communities whose water supplies are projected to run dry within the two months and people across the state dealing with conservation restrictions imposed by state and local governments. But as California headed into the third year of an historically bad drought, officials said the rain, as welcome as it was, would not rescue the state from its plight. “This won’t take us out of the drought, but it definitely helps,” said Kathy Hoxsie of the National

Weather Service. Tim Quinn, executive director of the Association of California Water Agencies, said the state’s water supply was just 44 percent of average, adding that he thought it highly improbable that the state would reach its normal water supplies before the end of the rainy season in April. “If the drought created an empty gallon jug for us, this storm created a cup and half of water,” he said. “We would need 20 of those.” Because the ground is so dry in the region, it is also less able to absorb water. Flash flood warnings were issued in Los Angeles County, and roads were closed as waters rose. Power was reported out in regions across the state because of fallen trees. Mandatory evacuations were ordered for more than 1,000 homes in Glendora and Azusa, east of Los Angeles, where a wildfire scorched the hillside in January, leaving the communities vulnerable to mudslides because the vegetation that helps hold the earth in place had been burned. At least 57 flights were canceled at San Francisco International Airport. Road flooding was reported in San Francisco and Los Angeles, and the authorities were closing roads — some of which had turned into
muddy rivers — across the region. But the rains did not stop Gov. Jerry Brown from going to the offices of the Alameda registrar of voters in Oakland, to officially file his candidacy for a fourth term. Many roads that would typically be crawling with traffic on a Friday afternoon were relatively empty. In Hollywood, where roads are closed in anticipation of the Academy Awards on Sunday, huge plastic awnings were raised over the halfblock long red carpet laid on Hollywood Boulevard that actors will walk down on the way to the ceremonies. As of Friday afternoon, 2.7 inches of rain had fallen on Los Angeles over the course of 48 hours, and most of that fell in the course of 12 hours. Between July 1 and Wednesday, the area had seen just 1.43 inches of rainfall. The authorities were expecting the rain to continue and intensify, and warned of mudslides, closed roads and additional power failures and fallen trees. In the most threatened area, Glendora, the authorities confronted residents who ignored the first word in the phrase “mandatory evacuations.” Officials pleaded with people to leave, warning that they would be unable to save them if mud started racing down the barren hills.
A leading Bitcoin exchange completed its weeks-long collapse Friday with a public apology and a bankruptcy filing, fueling calls for regulators to rein in the innovative virtual currency worth billions of dollars. The rise and fall of the marketplace, called Mt.Gox, has played out as something of a morality tale for those skeptical that a currency created on computers and untethered from regulatory structures or the full faith and credit of an issuing nation can be made secure enough for routine transactions. Yet as the debate raged over Bitcoin’s fate, there was growing consensus that virtual currencies — if not this particular one — would soon become irreplaceable features of the world’s financial system by satisfying a widespread demand for hightech, low-cost ways to transfer money beyond the reach of most forms of government tracking. Losses at Mt.Gox have been put at more than $400 million, and experts say it’s not clear whether that money was stolen by criminals or somehow mishandled by the operators of the exchange. Company officials have blamed a glitch in the transaction software that, they say, allowed hackers to siphon away money undetected. “What’s fascinating and disturbing about the bankruptcy is the size of the loss,” said Mark Williams, a former Federal Reserve official who teaches finance at Boston University. “There’s no legal recourse. There’s no financial system. ... In essence, if a criminal gets the coin, the criminal owns the coin.” The bankruptcy of Mt.Gox, one of the first major Bitcoin exchanges, surprised few by the time it arrived on Friday at a court in Tokyo, where the company was based. It had a history of trouble and had stopped functioning normally several weeks ago. Many Bitcoin enthusiasts said its demise will lead to a more-durable system for trading the virtual currency. Demands for regulation are the biggest threat to Bitcoin, say supporters. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., went even further, calling for a ban on Bitcoin this week as news spread of Mt.Gox’s troubles.

City breaks ground at Santa Fe Railyard for Violet Crown cinema
f all goes well, by early next year an 11-screen movie theater complex will replace the giant hole that has been a feature of the Santa Fe Railyard for years. On Friday, local officials and the planned cinema’s Austin-based owner took part in a groundbreaking ceremony for the Violet Crown. Mayor David Coss, City Councilor Rebecca Wurzburger, City Councilor and mayoral candidate Patti Bushee and former mayor Larry Delgado were among those who took part in the ceremony. The owner of the Violet Bill Crown chain of cinemas, Banowsky Bill Banowsky, said his goal is to make the Santa Fe theater the best in the world — “the first of its type anywhere.” The theater, which also will include a small cafe and restaurant that will serve wine and beer, will seat about 600 people. It will face competition from entrenched theaters such as the Regal Cinema at the DeVargas Center on the city’s north side as well as the 14-screen Regal Theater on the south side.

Police say he rear-ended another vehicle that had stopped, causing a chain-reaction crash that involved three vehicles besides his own. Lomayestewa attempted to flee the scene, a police spokeswoman said at the time, but was arrested about a half-hour later. He was indicted Thursday on three counts of great bodily injury by vehicle and one count each of failing to render aid and failure to give notice of an accident.

Gov. hopeful Rael drops effort to keep rival off ballot District judge rules in favor of Morales’ petition signatures By Milan Simonich The New Mexican
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Lawrence Rael conceded defeat Friday in his lawsuit aimed at keeping a rival off the primary election ballot. Rael’s legal team lost most of its challenges to candidate Howie Morales’ nominating petitions during the morning session of a hearing in state District Court in Santa Fe. Rael dropped the case at lunchtime, a couple of hours before District Judge Sarah Singleton was to resume the hearing. Kyle Armstrong, a spokesman for Rael, said Morales’ petitions contained numerous flawed signatures, Lawrence but the challenge would not have Rael succeeded under the judge’s interpretation of what was permissible. Singleton, guided by a state Supreme Court decision from 2008, allowed to stand certain signatures that Rael’s lawyers said violated the letter of campaign law. For instance, one woman who signed Morales’ petition listed a post office box instead of a street address, but Singleton rejected Rael’s attempt Howie to invalidate it. The woman who Morales signed was a registered Democrat whose identity and hometown could be verified through the secretary of state’s voter database, and that was good enough under the Supreme Court ruling, Singleton said. Morales, a state senator from Silver City, said he had expected to prevail. He did not attend the hearing, but his campaign manager was in court to help make the case for the validity of his petitions. “Just as I said all along, we were confident in the work our volunteers did,” Morales said in a telephone interview. “It’s a shame that the Rael campaign went this route.” To qualify for the primary ballot, a Democratic gubernatorial candidate needs 2,186 signatures. Morales filed 2,904, but Rael hired workers to pore over the signatures and then mounted a legal challenge to many of them. Rael’s wife, Kim Sanchez Rael, said she supervised a paid staff of six and two volunteers who looked for flaws in Morales’ petitions. Rael’s camp initially said 1,199 of the signatures were “questionable” and at least 887 were not valid under state law. But by the time the court hearing began Friday, Rael’s lawyers had retreated from many of their claims. They withdrew their challenge to 110 of the 887 signatures they first flagged as “invalid.” This meant Morales’ side had to salvage only 59 of the other challenged signatures for him to make the ballot. A painstaking review of individual signatures followed, and lawyers for each campaign argued over

State police operation New Mexico teen, 15, cites 41 in I-25 crackdown to be tried as adult New Mexico State Police conducted a traffic-enforcement operation on Interstate 25 early Friday morning in which officers issued 41 tickets, mostly for speeding. Sgt. Dayman Brown said the action took place between 7 and 9 a.m. Friday on I-25 near the La Cienega exit south of Santa Fe. Brown said seven officers participated in the operation, and while the majority of the violations were speeding-related, some drivers were cited for lacking proof of insurance. Brown said state officers between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. Friday also conducted an enforcement operation, in which they checked for driver’s licenses and proof of insurance at a roadblock on a stretch of N.M. 50 between Glorieta and Pecos, southeast of Santa Fe. Brown said officers issued 20 citations during that effort. A news release stated that state police plan to operate multiple DWI checkpoints at unspecified locations throughout Santa Fe
LOS LUNAS — A 15-year-old New Mexico boy accused of killing his 12-year-old friend will be tried as an adult. District Attorney Lemuel Martinez announced Friday that the teen will be tried as adult on charges of first-degree murder and tampering with evidence. An arrest warrant affidavit says the 15-yearold suspect hit Alex Madrid of Albuquerque on the left side of his head, then placed him under a mattress in a rural field outside of Los Lunas. Madrid was found dead last week. Under New Mexico law, the state can charge minors as adults only if they are at least 14. The AP typically doesn’t identify juveniles charged in crimes. Martinez says the judge also will have an option of sentencing the suspect as a youthful offender. That means the judge wouldn’t have to impose a maximum sentence as for an adult.

Wet, gusty weekend in store for N.M. By Susan Montoya Bryan
The Associated Press
ALBUQUERQUE — After marching through one of the driest winters the state has seen in more than a century, Mother Nature is providing drought-stricken New Mexico with some snow and rain. National Weather Service forecasters say the state should brace for abundant moisture and gusty winds through the weekend. The state’s northern mountains also are expected to receive much-needed snow that will fuel rivers’ water supplies later in the year. “We’re looking at a really big system coming in from California that will weaken a bit but will still bring some snow and rain,” meteorologist David Craft said. The northern mountains could see as much as 18 inches of snow, and the central mountains might also get snowfall, he said. Winds of up to 55 mph are expected to move into Eastern and Western New Mexico by Saturday, and snow is expected in the high mountains Saturday night through Sunday. Other areas around Central and Western New Mexico are expected to see some rainfall. Because of the winter weather, Western New Mexico University’s softball games against Adams State and Fort Lewis have been moved Sunday and Monday in Durango, Colo., where heavy snow is also expected. The National Resource Conservation Service said in February that the snowmelt runoff from the mountains is expected to be “less than average” to “significantly less than average,” because the region has not had the needed snow and is still suffering from a persistent drought. Runoff forecasts range from about 70 percent of average near the border with Colorado to around 30 percent on the Rio Grande entering Elephant Butte Reservoir, and the Jemez and Mimbres rivers, the agency said. Some the mountains where this weekend’s snow is expected to hit have received only 50 percent of the average snow this season, Craft said.

A Las Cruces newspaper themselves. That allowed the called it “a go-ahead place, an minority Democrats to gain
temporary control. Alarmed, Republican Gov. Marsh Giddings brought armed federal troops into the Capitol building to intimidate the Democrats and keep power in the hands of the Ring. Speaker Diego Archuleta denounced the governor as a tyrant “who seeks to overawe us and force us to obey his despotic will by the presence of U.S. bayonets. Before we submit, the Mexican people had better be placed upon reservations as the Indians now are.” Grant County, of course, opposed the rascally governor. As a result, he saw that two legislative bills important to it were killed. One would have given Silver City a charter, allowing it to incorporate. The other would have permitted Grant County to establish a public school system. Resentment caused by this action ran deep and lingered. It finally peaked in 1876, when Grant County announced it would seek to cut its political ties with New Mexico and join Arizona. The people declared they were tired of being held in a state of vassalage by Santa Fe
and its Ring. By uniting with Arizona, Grant County citizens saw advantages. Not only would they be rid of Santa Fe, where they were under-represented and without influence, they would be much closer in miles to Arizona’s capital at Tucson. Also, Arizona was a mining state that could understand their special problems. Then there was the matter of the Chiricahua Apaches who were still on the warpath. Arizona, suffering the same trouble, could be counted upon to be more attentive in developing mutual defense. Urged on by local newspapers, residents went to the polls and overwhelmingly voted for Grant County’s “Declaration of Independence.” The fact that the national centennial was in progress and much patriotic fervor was in the air probably contributed to the outcome of the election. Arizona seemed delighted. A newspaper in Yuma proclaimed: “For our part we would welcome them with open arms.” Arizona Gov. Anson P.K. Safford
warmly approved and steered through his legislature a memorial asking Congress to allow his annexation of New Mexico’s Grant County. At first, the Santa Fe Ring and the leaders of Northern New Mexico treated the secessionist movement as a joke. But after the governor of Arizona had acted, and the measure was sent to Washington, the laughing died. Indeed, there was s flurry of panic. New Mexico could not afford to lose its richest county. Congress settled the issue when it allowed the annexation bill to die in committee. But the Santa Fe politicians had received a good scare. Soon after, the Legislature passed measures that let Silver City incorporate and establish its school system. Although she had lost the war, Grant County won prestige and a strong new voice. Thereafter, the Santa Fe Ring treated Silver City with kid gloves, and no more talk was heard of secession. Now in semi-retirement, author Marc Simmons wrote a weekly history column for more than 35 years.

in public areas and had alerted officers to narcotics, Poague said. Agents either immediately spoke with the driver of a vehicle suspected of having drugs or waited until the driver returned. But Poague said the dog was not used to sniff people. During the operation, officers issued five violation notices for possession of marijuana, three for expired vehicle registrations, two for speeding, one for illegal possession of prescription drugs, one for a driver who did not have motor vehicle insurance and one for passing in a nopassing zone. The agents also issued two written warnings for cracked windshields, one for speeding and one for an expired vehicle registration. Three verbal warnings also were issued for cracked windshields and one for a vio-
lation of seat belt laws. Poague did not specify the quantity of drugs seized during the operation. The agents briefly walked around the ski area but did not issue any citations there, he said. But some visitors said the presence of federal law enforcement officers searching for marijuana was incongruous with Taos Ski Valley’s family atmosphere. “It just seemed a little over the top to me,” said Mo Kaluga, a longtime season passholder who had taken to the slopes Saturday with family. He said he was baffled by the suggestion that crime had become an issue at the ski area. “I haven’t seen any problems,” Kaluga told The Taos News. “I’ve never had my car ripped off. Nobody’s ever tried to sell me drugs. If something happened, they should let people know about it.” The presence of federal law enforcement also concerned Taos Ski Valley
employees. In an internal email obtained by The Taos News, managers encouraged staff to recount their interactions with the officers. Taos Ski Valley executives declined to comment for this story. Forest Service law enforcement will communicate more closely with local officials in the future, Poague said. Poague said the agency acted entirely within its jurisdiction, as Taos Ski Valley is part of the Carson National Forest, but Forest Service law enforcement officials will work more closely with local officials in the future. He added that the use of a dog to sniff for drugs near vehicles parked in public areas is constitutional. “I’ve yet to hear any allegations that we overstepped our bounds or violated anyone’s constitutional rights,” he said.

Tierra Blanca youth ranch targeted in third lawsuit Complaint names CYFD as defendant By Phaedra Haywood The New Mexican
Another lawsuit has been filed against a Southern New Mexico youth program that has been the subject of allegations of abuse over the past year. The complaint for damages filed Thursday in state District Court in Santa Fe against the Tierra Blanca Ranch High County Youth Program by James and Cheryl Morgan, grandparents of a former program participant, is the third lawsuit lodged against the program and its owners since December. Similar to
the other two cases pending against the program and its owners, husband and wife Scott and Colette Chandler, the complaint alleges the grandson was physically and emotionally abused and forced to work without compensation. The complaint also names the state Children, Youth and Families Department as a defendant, claiming the agency failed to take corrective action against the ranch. The department has said it doesn’t have authority to oversee Tierra Blanca’s program because the business is categorized as a “wilderness” program. Legislation that would have addressed that issue was proposed during the recent legislative session but did not pass.
Scott Chandler has said the ranch does not subject program participants to any treatment that is illegal or not sanctioned by parents. He filed suit against CYFD himself last year, claiming the agency violated search-and-seizure laws when it came to the ranch to investigate the death of a young man who died in a motor vehicle accident at the ranch last fall. Tierra Blanca and CYFD agreed to a settlement in that case Feb. 21, with the ranch agreeing to increased oversight of the program by CYFD for the next year while the parties work toward finding a way to address the jurisdictional issue that allows the ranch to operate outside CYFD authority.

WASHINGTON — New Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson is reviewing the department’s use-of-force policies, a Homeland Security official said Friday. The official said Johnson has been reviewing the rules about when border agents can use their guns since he took office in December. Customs and Border Protection, which oversees the Border Patrol, has been criticized by civil rights groups and others for allowing border agents to use deadly force against people blamed for throwing rocks at them. Border Patrol Chief Michael Fisher said last year that a report by the Police Executive Research Forum, a group that led a government-commissioned review, recommended
a ban on deadly force against rock throwers and assailants in vehicles. CBP rejected the recommendations, Jeh Johnson which Fisher described to The Associated Press as “very restrictive.” Now, agents can use deadly force if they have a reasonable belief that their lives or the lives of others are in danger. The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday that it obtained a copy of the report, which it described as critical of the Border Patrol’s “lack of diligence” in investigating agents who fired their guns. The newspaper said the report also concluded “that some border agents stood in
front of moving vehicles as a pretext to open fire and that agents could have moved away from rock throwers instead of shooting at them.” The 21-page review of incidents from January 2010 to October 2012 raised questions about cases in which agents fired across the border fence into Mexico and said “too many” cases don’t meet the threshold for use of deadly force, the person said. Rep. Zoe Lofgren, a California Democrat, said she read the report and found it “very disturbing.” “It makes clear that there needs to be very serious reform efforts at the agency,” she said. “You don’t use lethal force against nonlethal force.” The Homeland Security official said Johnson’s review was not prompted by any additional incidents or new details.

With the money from this year’s legislative session, Howe said, the organization will work with about 90 couples during six retreats that will be held between July 1 of this year and June 30, 2015. Since the money will come from the state, Howe said, the organization will probably have to spend it on retreats for veterans from New Mexico. Howe said he plans to visit cities in Texas and Oklahoma during the next two years in hopes of raising funds to host retreats in other states. The Sangre de Cristo Chronicle is a sister paper of The Santa Fe New Mexican.

Candidates take interest in water conservation efforts
A hospital study
n the My View contribution (“Ask local candidates about water issues”) published Feb. 23, it was stated that no city candidates had replied to our offer to provide them with a copy of the city of Santa Fe’s Water Conservation Committee slide presentation, “Water Conservation in Santa Fe.” The published version was submitted for the previous Sunday. I had submitted corrections to The New Mexican and deleted that statement because I had received several requests. Unfortunately, the dated version was published. I think it is only fair to acknowledge the following five city candidates who did request the presentation: Patti Bushee, Marie Campos, Javier Gonzales, Carmichael Dominguez and Signe Lindell. The Water Conservation Committee thanks them for their interest.

Wake up, city In the citywide referendum election, you voted overwhelmingly to allocate some of your tax money for community funded elections … a clear expression of your desire to conduct our elections on a level playing field without big money. Now we see that big money still attempts to smother the will of our community. Special interests are blatantly resisting our declaration. Who among us believes these big spenders do not expect gifts in return for their generosity? Their intent is to cancel the vote for fairness that we have taken. We must reject them and their candidate, or big money will be ever-present in future elections.

At the time of her death, Mother Teresa had pinned to her wall a page known as the Paradoxical Commandments. The second of these nine is “If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Do good anyway.” Perhaps she is no saint, but I am dismayed that so many good people in Santa Fe are accusing Patti Bushee of being self-serving. In 30 years of knowing her, I have never witnessed Patti promoting her own interests above those of the community in either public process or social discourse. To the contrary, she has proven to me her ability as a leader to listen carefully, digest enormous amounts of information and find commonality amongst the often disparate interests of stakeholders in complex negotiations. The term “self-serving” is classic propaganda that relies on repetition to create facts for those not privileged by the truth. Eric Gent

Ukrainian roulette? Crisis deepens
dangerous game is being played out in Ukraine, the secondbiggest country in Europe. A revolution of sorts has toppled the proRussian government of former President Viktor Yanukovych, Bill Stewart which in turn has Understanding brought Your World on Russian military “exercises” involving some 150,000 troops, some near the Ukrainian frontier, while Russian jet fighters have begun to patrol the Ukrainian-Russian border. This, in turn, has caused U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to warn Russian President Vladimir Putin not to view the current situation as part of some East-West clash from the days of the Cold War. “Any kind of military intervention would be a grave mistake,” Kerry said. The situation has been made worse in recent days with clashes between Russians in the Crimea, who make up some 58 percent of the population, and Muslim Tatars, who make up about 12 percent of the country. Ethnic Ukrainians make up about 24 percent. ProRussia elements in Simferopol, the capital of Crimea, seized control of the parliament building to enforce their demands that Crimea reject the new government in Kiev and perhaps revert to being part of Russia itself. Pro-Russian crowds have been confronted by pro-Kiev Tatars in an ugly standoff that Kiev fears could lead to armed conflict. Russia has been the dominant power in Crimea for most of the past 200 years, since it annexed the region in 1783. Moscow transferred the region to Ukraine, then part of the Soviet Union, in 1954, by order of Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, himself a Ukrainian. Russian Ukrainians

have long since regarded the transfer as a historic error. The Muslim Crimean Tatars, however, point out that they were once the majority in Crimea and were deported in large numbers by Soviet leader Joseph Stalin in 1944 for alleged collaboration with Nazi invaders in World War II. The Tatars regard Crimea as home and everybody else as foreigners. In other words, everybody hates everybody else. To complicate matters further, Crimea is home base for the Russian Black Sea Fleet, a formidable force that could be turned against Ukraine in the event of armed conflict. The fleet operates under a Ukrainian-Russian treaty that has long irritated Ukrainian governments. In the meantime, a new “government of national unity” has been formed in Kiev, made up in part of civic activists who had manned the barricades for months until Yanukovych fled. Arseniy Yatsenyuk, a 40-yearold former economy minister and leader of the Fatherland party, has become prime minister. But Dymtro Bulatov, the leader of a group of car owners who led protest convoys, was suggested as minister for youth and sports. Olha Bohomolets, a doctor who helped run the medical center in the Maidan,
the protest square, could become the deputy prime minister for humanitarian affairs. She said, “I want to promise you that if, in this government, I see corrupt schemes, I’ll come onto the Maidan and coordinate the medical center again.” Going from the barricades to the corridors of power must be exhilarating. But then come the hard choices of governing, something the civic activists will have to learn how to make. One decision concerns fundamental economic reform, essential if Ukraine is to receive anywhere near the $35 billion it needs to pay its debts and revive the economy. The treasury is empty, says the new government, with billions of dollars missing. The new government, in fact, is an interim government. Fresh elections for parliament and the presidency will be held in May. But the entire “political class” in Ukraine has come under fire as a result of years of corruption by all the parties and is regarded with deep skepticism by the Ukrainians. This explains why civic activists at the barricades are so popular. And, in part, it helps to explain why even former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko, released from prison as a result of the revolution and in clear
need of medical attention, was welcomed to the Maidan but without any great enthusiasm. She may be something of a national icon, but she, too, is tainted. In the meantime, it seems that Yanukovych has found refuge in Russia, and is scheduled to make a speech insisting he is still the lawful president of the Ukraine. It is interesting that the Russians are giving him a public forum. Clearly, they still regard him as the legitimate president. But at what point does perceived national interest collide with political reality? That is what makes the current situation so delicate and dangerous. Historically, the Russians have always preferred the sledgehammer to the scalpel. Hence, there are Russian jet fighters along the Ukrainian frontier and the sudden movement of 150,000 troops near the border. They say military intervention is out of the question. But that is today. What about tomorrow? This is by no means over. Bill Stewart writes about current affairs from Santa Fe. He is a former U.S. Foreign Service officers and worked as a correspondent for Time magazine.

Keep chain stores out of downtown
just visited Santa Fe last weekend for the second time. I’m from Washington, D.C., and my husband and I are considering moving to Santa Fe. During my visit, I was surprised to discover that J.Crew is open not far from the Plaza. One of the things that makes Santa Fe so unique is its ability to preserve an identity, and during my first trip, I happily noticed a different style of dress than one finds on the East Coast. Not only that, most of the stores had a unique approach that you don’t see anywhere else. J.Crew and other trendy chain brand stores like it should not be there. I think if Santa Fe allows these stores so near to the Plaza (they should be in a mall), it will lose its well-known identity. Pilar Vergara
Uncovering theft In April 2009, Mayor Joe Maestas hired me, Andrew Perkins, CPA, as chief financial officer for the city of Española. After arriving, as I organized my fiscal office, I noticed malfeasance, to say the least. I found that the finance staff had been embezzling from the city to the tune of many thousands of dollars. If it were not for the mayor hiring me, the embezzlement and collusion of finance staff could
have gone on indefinitely. Joe Maestas, now a City Council candidate in Santa Fe, should be lauded for his foresight and due diligence, not ridiculed by an opponent. His election to the Santa Fe City Council should be a certainty, as Joe Maestas is a leader with a positive and progressive background. Andrew Perkins
Citizens saved Atalaya Contrary to the assertion by Royal Drews (“Letter to the editor, Early adapter,” Feb. 26) Javier Gonzales did not “save Atalaya Mountain and the ridge tops from development.” In fact, Atalaya and surrounding ridge tops were “saved” by hundreds of citizen volunteers from across the greater Santa Fe community. These citizens dedicated themselves to the protection of our mountains by working tirelessly to educate our elected officials about the critical need to understand the impacts of fire, erosion, loss of wildlife, habitat, open space and views as logical consequences of the proposed suburban development of our wildland interface. During this process, which included numerous public hearings, County Commissioner Javier Gonzales was passive, at best. It is a fact that the protective Mountain Ordinance suc-

Yes on strong mayor Santa Fe faces complex and interrelated challenges for our citizens and businesses. The world has changed, and Santa Fe’s charter must be changed so that City Hall will be more accountable to voters and better able to serve all the citizens and all parts of Santa Fe. On Jan. 1, Santa Fe annexed 4,100 acres of land and added about 14,000 residents in a new part of town that lacks many city services. This presents the city with a complex challenge that requires full-time, accountable leadership. Many local Santa Fe businesses are frustrated because there is no strategic direction and accountability that a full-time mayor elected by all the voters of Santa Fe would offer. Under the current charter, leadership is divided and often in conflict. This must be fixed. I fully support Charter Amendment 9 because a full-time mayor will give Santa Fe better leadership and make the mayor accountable to all the people of Santa Fe. Roy B. Martinez

here’s hardly an ingredient in that candy bar you just unwrapped that the government didn’t have a strong, distorting hand in producing — the peanuts, the sugar, the milk, to name a few. U.S. sugar companies, for example, benefit from a series of overlapping trade protections that the last “reform” farm bill left untouched. If you’re drinking a soda while reading this editorial, you’re probably consuming large amounts of highfructose corn syrup. Corn farmers are unfairly coddled, too. This supposed economic policy, with its roots in a time when large numbers of impoverished farmers were perpetually one bad harvest away from ruin, is now socialized agriculture that largely benefits wealthy agribusinesses at the expense of taxpayers and consumers. Getting rid of these supports is the right thing to do economically. But what about public health? The distress, diminished quality of life and premature deaths associated with obesity, diabetes and other related ailments demand a government response. Eliminating the subsidies for corn would raise the price of corn syrup, which might help. Eliminating the sugar program, though, would lower the price of that ready substitute for corn syrup. Obviously, the government shouldn’t stop there. An effective anti-obesity policy would include taxes on certain bad-for-you foods, which would tend to discourage unhealthy habits without objectionable restrictions on consumer choice. This is preferable to current sugar policy, which nudges prices up but channels the difference to companies that haven’t earned it, in part because the federal Treasury would benefit from the tax revenue. Some public health advocates favor new taxes on products such as sugary drinks, which account for a large chunk of Americans’ consumption of refined sugars. Several states and cities are considering the idea. But a recent working paper from the National Bureau of Economic Research highlights that going after just one class — sugary drinks — might encourage people to replace those drinks with candy bars rather than cut back on refined sugars altogether. The researchers from Cornell and Stanford found that applying a 20 percent tax to soda would reduce calorie consumption by about 4 percent, the equivalent of about 16 cans a month, and decrease people’s satisfaction with their diet by about 2.5 percent. But they also found that a general tax applied to refined sugars at the ingredient stage would reduce calorie consumption by nearly 19 percent, with the same hit in satisfaction and with sizable effects on salt and fat intake. In other words, people will eat more apples when all products with refined sugars are more expensive.
The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: March 1, 1964: The unsatisfactory conditions in the city jail, truancy at the public schools and the lack of money to properly operate the District Attorney’s Office were among the items listed in the final report of the Santa Fe County grand jury, which was discharged Friday afternoon following eight days of investigations. One of the Denver rainmakers was back in town Friday and flatly told state officials and a U.S. Weather Bureau meteorologist he could produce 4 inches of rain per month in any area of the Southwest. He said his new and patented process of seeding the atmosphere had never failed to produce rain when and where he said it would. Not only that, but the recent heavy snowstorm in New Mexico was the result of his having seeded the atmosphere to produce moisture for the San Luis Valley in Colorado. His charges for a Weather Engineering seeding job would run about $3,000 monthly for a 15-section ranch, and the firm would not take on

A spokeswoman for the New York City medical examiner said Friday that Hoffman died from a mix of heroin, cocaine, amphetamines and benzodiazepines, which are psychoactive drugs such as Librium. The death was ruled an accident. Law enforcement officials have said Hoffman was found Feb. 2 with a needle in his arm. The 46-year-old star of Capote said last year that he had sought treatment for a heroin problem after 23 years of sobriety.

Oscar horse race is a photo finish By Jake Coyle
The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES any of the winners who will take home an Oscar on Sunday have long been forecast, their triumph made seemingly selfevident after months of anticipation. That is, except for one little category: best picture. Even in a particularly lengthy awards season (the Academy Awards were pushed back slightly for the Olympics), and despite the tireless analysis of an everswelling Oscar blogosphere, no one really knows which film is going to take the night’s biggest award. This Oscars, more than any in years, will go down to the wire. Of the nine best picture nominees, the front-runners are widely considered to be Alfonso Cuaron’s 3-D spectacle Gravity, Steve McQueen’s historical odyssey 12 Years a Slave and David O. Russell’s corruption comedy American Hustle. The industry guild awards, usually the most predictive honors, have only muddied the waters. Actors, the largest branch of the Academy of Motion Pictures, have been most enthusiastic for Hustle. The Screen Actors Guild awarded it their top honor. Just as Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook did last year, American Hustle managed the very rare feat of landing nominations in all four acting categories (for Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper). Cuaron and Gravity won at the Directors Guild. The Producers Guild couldn’t even decide: 12 Years a Slave and Gravity tied for its top prize. 12 Years a Slave also won best picture at the Golden Globes and at Britain’s BAFTA Awards. Is history any guide? Last year, the academy was also faced with a choice between an historical epic centered on slavery (Lincoln) and a 1970s caper (Argo) and it went for Ben Affleck’s more ebullient option. American Hustle shares a lot with Argo, including its wardrobe. But this year, the weight of
12 Years a Slave is suspected to be impossible to deny. The “Gurus o’ Gold” poll of Oscar onlookers by film blog Movie City News has nine of 15 analysts predicting McQueen’s drama. The others chose Gravity, which all agree will clean up in technical categories like visual effects and cinematography. Awards for either film (both of which premiered in September at the Telluride Film Festival within days of each other) could mean Oscar history. If the Mexican filmmaker Cuaron takes best director, as he’s expected to, he’ll be the first Latino winner in the category. Similarly, were the British McQueen to win best director, he’d be the first black filmmaker to win. And if 12 Years a Slave wins best picture, it will be the first time a film directed by a black filmmaker wins the academy’s top honor. Such landmarks of diversity would be welcome for the academy, whose approximately 6,000 members are overwhelmingly older white men. A 2012 study by The Los Angeles Times found that Oscar voters are almost 94 percent white and 77 percent male. African Americans, the Times found, make up about 2 percent of the academy, and Latinos are less than 2 percent. Voters (who keep membership for life) have a median age of 62. The academy is trying to change that and has recently opened up its ranks to hundreds of new members. Sunday’s ceremony will be the first for new president, Cheryl Boone Isaacs, the academy’s first black president. Whichever film wins will crown not just a razor-thin race (Harvey Weinstein has called it “the most competitive season I’ve ever seen”), but a particularly strong bestpicture field. Also nominated is Spike Jonze’s futuristic romance Her, Alexander Payne’s black-and-white road trip Nebraska, Martin Scorsese’s financial meltdown The Wolf of Wall Street, the Texas AIDS drama Dallas Buyers Club and the family history investigation Philomena. It’s only fitting that a movie year so full of drama should end as a nail-biter.

A wild postgame brawl following a contentious game between Utah Valley and New Mexico State highlighted the risks when fans and players collide. The Western Athletic Conference suspended New Mexico State junior guard K.C. RossMiller for two games K.C. and senior forward Ross-Miller Renaldo Dixon for one for violating the league’s sportsmanship policy following its review of the melee Thursday night in Orem, Utah. Ross-Miller hurled the ball at Utah Valley’s Holton Hunsaker Renaldo seconds after the Dixon Wolverines’ 66-61 victory over the Aggies. The ball hit Hunsaker — the son of Utah Valley coach Dick Hunsaker — in the leg. Some of the fans who stormed the court following the victory got caught up in the chaos and punches were thrown.

Bairstow is key part of Lobos’ success By Glen Rosales
The Associated Press
ALBUQUERQUE — Four years ago, it was difficult for the New Mexico coaching staff to really envision how Cameron Bairstow would evolve as a player. “When he first came over he was 6-9, 205 and he could barely dunk,” said Lobos coach Craig Neal. “We thought he could be good, but not like this, though.” Before this season, Bairstow had never scored 20 points in a game. Now the senior forward is averaging that much for No. 25 New Mexico, reaching 20 or more 16 times. He’s dazzled opposing coaches and players with an array of moves that simply were not in his repertoire before and is considered one of the leading candidates for Mountain West player of the year.

abrina Lozada-Cabbage was nearly invisible for about three quarters, but then she showed up at just the right time. After scoring only five points in the first three quarters against the Española Valley Lady Sundevils on Friday in the District 2AAAA Tournament Championship in Toby Roybal Memorial Gymnasium, the Santa Fe High center scored 16 points in the fourth quarter and overtime to help lift the Demonettes to a 51-48 win. The Demonettes (26-2 overall) trailed for most of the game and had a 6:54 scoring slump in the second quarter. By halftime, they were down 24-16. A big part of the Santa Fe High offense runs through Lozada-Cabbage, and head coach Elmer Chavez gave her an earful to try to get her going. “I kind of chewed on her a little bit on the bench and I told her, ‘You need to get it done inside,’ ” Chavez said. Lozada-Cabbage didn’t get going until she hit two free throws with 5:52 left in the game to cut the Española (21-7) lead to 31-30. About a minute later, she put a shot off the glass to give the Demonettes a 32-31 lead, their first since the opening basket of the game. The two teams traded blows and Española held a 39-37 lead in the final minute. When the Demonettes needed a basket to tie the game, they looked no further than Lozada-Cabbage. The 6-foot-2 junior put another shot off the backboard and tied the game at 39 with :29 left, and that score would remain intact until the regulation buzzer. The two teams tied twice in the overtime period, but then LozadaCabbage converted an old-fashioned three-point play with :28 left to give the Demonettes a 49-46 advantage. Down 51-48 with just :07 left, Española’s Kaitlyn Romero heaved a long 3-pointer in an attempt to play another overtime period. The shot ricocheted off the back of the rim and the Demonettes became the 2AAAA regular season and tournament champions. Lozada-Cabbage was a big part of that final push by the Demonettes, but Chavez wasn’t only one that gave her a verbal lashing. Throughout the game, her teammates were urging her to make big plays in the post, and those

Blue Griffins capture District 2AA title in OT
Mora gives Prep a game to remember before teams split into different classes next year By James Barron
The New Mexican
The Santa Fe Preparatory Blue Griffins needed a challenge. The Mora Rangers wanted some well-earned respect — and a district title to boot. And two long-standing boys basketball district members stamped a decade of partnership with a farewell that only seemed fitting. The current iteration of District 2AA said goodbye with a championship to be remembered, as
Prep held on for a 77-72 overtime win against the Rangers to complete a sweep of the regular-season and 2AA tournament championship. The action was so intense and spine-tingling that Blue Griffins senior forward Will Lenfestey took a moment in the middle of the drama to let Mora head coach James Branch know just how he felt at the moment. “This is a fun game — that’s what I told coach Branch,” Lenfestey said. “I was like, ‘Man, we’re having a good time.’ I don’t know how many [3-pointers] they hit, but they just kept going.” The answer was 11, but it was the 11th one that appeared to be the dagger to the Blue Griffins (23-4), winners of their previous 16 games. When Jeremiah Olivas nailed a 22-footer with :04.9 on the clock in regulation, Mora (13-16) tied the score at 70. For a Prep team that hadn’t experienced a close
game since losing 61-51 to Santa Fe High in the Capital City Invitational in December, it was the ultimate test of their mental toughness. “I guess the guys know now what it means to play a team three times in one season,” said Dennis Casados, Prep head coach. “Tonight was the proof in the pudding. We needed to come out and play, and we did.” D.J. Casados, coach Casados’ senior grandson, scored on a drive to open the extra-period scoring, and sophomore Francis Castillo y Mulert hit a 16-footer and a pair of free throws to extend the Prep margin to 76-72 with 20.3 seconds left. Prep’s experience trumped Mora’s perimeter prowess and full-court intensity that kept the undersized Rangers hot on the Blue Griffins’ heels.

Restrict fans’ freedom to stop court storming

uspensions and strong reaction from administrators and media mainstays made up the bulk of the fallout from Thursday night’s ugly postgame brawl following New Mexico State’s overtime loss at Utah Valley in men’s college basketball. Blame him. Blame them. Blame those guys over there. For shame, all of you. Well, now that we’ve settled who gets the stink eye, let’s figure out how to fix this. If there’s one thing everyone seems to agree on, it’s that court storming must be stopped. Enough with the tired theatrics of
fans rushing the court to celebrate a win that, in the end, really doesn’t mean a whole lot. It didn’t guarantee a national championship, it didn’t Will Webber secure a longCommentary awaited conference crown and it certainly didn’t mean free scholarships for everyone in the house. The smart answer is simple: Hit the

players and fans where it hurts most, and that’s in a restriction of freedom. Fans can deal with higher ticket prices, so upping the bottom line on up-front seats won’t work. Idiots have money, too. In fact, the more money is paid, the bigger the excuse to come off the rails. Choking off access to the court by lining the bottom row with ushers and a uniformed security detail sends a message that the court is there to be observed, not stormed. Doing so would come at an obvious risk of getting tackled, tazed or given the walk of shame in plastic hand-ties.
Fines, trespassing charges and criminal intent charges must be levied to cultivate a culture that illustrates misbehavior will not be tolerated. Try getting anywhere near the court at The Pit. If there’s not a security guard there to impede your progress, there is a cherry-blazered usher. Of course, all of this is too late to help NMSU’s cause. Gone from the Aggies bench are K.C. Ross-Miller and Renaldo Dixon for playing central roles in the fracas that lit up social media like a wildfire on Friday

Keselowski to start on pole in Phoenix
By John Marshall
The Associated Press
AVONDALE, Ariz. — Brad Keselowski has earned the pole at Phoenix International Raceway after making it through NASCAR’s new knockout-style qualifying Friday. Keselowski had a fast lap of 139.384 mph, turning the mile oval in 25.828 seconds to earn a spot on the front row next to Joey Logano for Sunday’s 312mile race. Jamie McMurray qualified third, defending Sprint Cup champion was fourth and Daytona 500 champion Dale
Earnhardt Jr. will start fifth next to Greg Biffle. NASCAR made numerous changes for this season, including Brad Keselowski a tweaked qualifying process in an effort to liven up what had become a monotonous part of race weekend. Instead of going out one at a time, the entire field gets a 25-minute session to post their fastest lap, with the top 12 moving on to a 10-minute second
round. On bigger tracks, the qualifying will have three sessions, with the field cut to 24 then 12. NASCAR got a glimpse of the new system at Daytona last week, but it didn’t last long; the Nationwide series was able to get in one round before rain washed out the rest of the qualifying and for the Truck Series. The Daytona 500 didn’t use the new qualifying process, so Phoenix was the inaugural goround. No one knew quite what to expect and there was a bit of concern about drivers intentionally blocking each
other to prevent fast lap times, something NASCAR officials planned to keep an eye on. Instead, the action on the track was sparse for long stretches, with some drivers racing out to get qualifying laps in right away while several others waited several minutes to get their first lap in. Logano and Keselowski were at the front of the pack along pit road — by random drawing — and raced to get out in front on the track so they’d have a clear path. Logano put up the fastest time early and Keselowski was right behind him in second.
Ramsey leads Waldorf in regular season finale The New Mexican
Settle it on the court instead of in the board room. That’s the thinking of Rob Clifford, Santa Fe Waldorf’s boys basketball head coach. When it comes to landing a spot in the upcoming Class B State Tournament, the Wolves would rather make sure things are guaranteed by winning a district tournament title rather than subjecting themselves to the at-large bid process for accomplishing anything less. “You never know when it comes to that stuff if 16 wins will get you in,” Clifford said. “I’d rather just have it taken care of so’s not to worry about any of it.” Thanks to Sean Ramsey, Waldorf took a huge step in doing just that Friday night. The 6-foot-2 sophomore poured in a school-record 37 points to go along with 15 rebounds as the Wolves demolished Albuquerque Graceway Christian, 71-36, in the regular season finale for both teams. Augie Ciofalo had 18 points and five steals while Abel
Knouse added 10 points and 12 rebounds for Waldorf, which has now won six straight games and 13 of its last 16. At 16-10 overall and 7-1 in District 5B, Waldorf has secured at least a tie for the district’s top spot. Evangel Christian can force a one-game playoff on Monday if it can beat Walatowa Charter on Saturday night. “Even if we don’t get the automatic [bid], I would hope doing what we’ve done against Class B schools [11-2 so far] would stand for something,” Clifford said. “We’re playing our best basketball right now. That’s got to mean something.”
Lady Bobcats became the sixth Class A school to win at least 20 games thus far. They secured an automatic bid to state with the win. The eight district tournament winners all make it to the postseason, while the remaining eight teams in the 16-team field must receive at-large bids. The top eight seeds get home court advantage in next weekend’s opening round. “The problem is we’ve been In things pretty much all year,” said McCurdy head coach Flavio Martinez. “I’d really like to see us get an 8-seed or better. Going south for the first round; those games down there are tough.”
GIRLS 4A MCCURdY 64, ESCALANTE 29 In Española, the Lady Bobcats got 15 points from Alannah Sanchez and 13 from Carla Santos in routing the visiting Lady Lobos in the district tournament championship game in Memorial Gymnasium. McCurdy (20-7) never trailed, using a 24-4 run in the first quarter hold up as five players finished in double figures. The
N.M. HIGHLANdS 5, AdAMS STATE 2 In Alamosa, Colo., the Cowboys opened their Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference schedule with a win as starting pitcher Blake Harrison (1-1) worked into the eighth inning in his second career start. The right-handed junior from Galt, Calif., allowed six hits, two earned runs, one walk and struck out five. He escaped a
pair of jams but lasted long enough to impress NMHU head coach Steve Jones. “The one issue with him has been his control, and him only walking one guy was a really good sign,” Jones said. “We kind of had him as a bullpen guy to start the year, but now I think he’s in that top two or three for the starting rotation.” Highlands (4-7 overall, 1-0 RMAC) never trailed. The Cowboys broke a 1-all tie in the top of the third inning when catcher Morgan McCasland launched a two-run home run, his third of the season, to make it a 3-1 lead. NMHU would add two more runs in the seventh as Braulio Hernandez worked the final 11/3 innings for a four-out save, his first of the season. McCasland went 3-for-4 with a double and a pair of RBI. Rightfielder Colby Wilmer was 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored. Shortstop Jonathan Stavinoha added a pair of hits and a stolen base. Weather permitting, the teams will play a doubleheader on Saturday starting at noon, then wrap up the four-game set Sunday with the series finale.
Crown: Española kept Santa Fe out of sync Continued from Page B-1 words finally produced action in the closing minutes of regulation. “It didn’t really click until the fourth quarter and overtime that I needed to play big inside,” Lozada-Cabbage said. “I knew we needed that push, so I was glad to be able to help our team get back into it and win the game.” It was Española’s plan from the start of the game to shut down Lozada-Cabbage, and that worked for at least the first three quarters. “Their strengths are inside, and we were trying to force them outside,” Española head coach Ray Romero said. “We
chose to take away their inside game, and it worked for a half.” That strategy not only worked on Lozada-Cabbage, but it also kept the rest of the Demonettes out of sync. Santa Fe High did not score more than 10 points in each of the first two quarters, and a slow start was something Chavez saw as a possibility after beating Española in a regular season tiebreaker Monday in Los Alamos. “I was worried about that,” Chavez said. “We blew them out Monday, so we thought it was going to be easy. We struggled for about half the game, and in the second half we came out with a purpose.” Now that the Demonettes captured both district titles, he feels they are the
best team in the state — and that it should be reflected when the Class AAAA State Tournament pairings are released on Sunday. “If they don’t pick us as No. 1, they’re crazy,” Chavez said. So now that the Demonettes are the undisputed 2AAAA champions, the possible No. 1 seed in the state tournament and winners of a school record 26 games — how is Chavez going to reward his team? “I don’t want them to peak too early, so on [Saturday] we’re going to have them come in for about an hour and a half and do a lot of running,” Chavez said. Well, at least they aren’t invisible to anyone else in AAAA.
2AA: Rangers stayed on Blue Griffins’ heels Continued from Page B-1 But that kind of ferocity on the court has defined the members of 2AA (Mora, Prep, Pecos, Peñasco and Monte del Sol) since its current makeup in 2010 — as well as the six years Mora, Prep, Pecos and Monte del Sol were district foes in 4AA before that. Next year, the ever-evolving world of classification and alignment will separate the gang. Mora and Peñasco will remain in Class AA, while Prep, Pecos and Monte del Sol will make the move to AAA in August. Friday’s game turned into the sincerest form of flattery — an imitation of the physical and emotional battles that have
defined the district. “Ever since my seventh-grade year, I’ve always been looking forward to this,” said Prep junior forward Ian Andersson. “They are the biggest games of the year.” The Rangers, with no player taller than 5-foot-11 Emmerick Martinez, gave no quarter to a Prep team that had blown through 2AA foes in the regular season by an average margin of 24 points. Only Mora came close to a single-digit game, losing 66-53 at home on Feb. 15. It was exactly what the Blue Griffins needed to prepare themselves for what lies ahead in the AA state tournament. “At state, it’s not going to be
like that,” said Castillo y Mulert. “Maybe the first round, but after that, teams get good and it’s a competition. And so, it was good that we had a game like this, because it toughened us up.” Every time Prep threatened to pull away, the Rangers simply refused to go away. When D.J. Casados opened the third quarter with a layup on a baseline drive, the Blue Griffins led 36-26, but Mora answered with 3-pointers by Casimiro Fresquez and Travis Romero. Fresquez scored on a drive to make it 36-34. Prep slowly built the margin back up to 51-41 late in the third on Wyeth Carpenter’s baseline jumper with 1:35 left, but Mora
went on 16-6 march to tie it at 57 on Miguel Olivas’ three-point play on a driving layup at 3:29 of the fourth quarter. Prep built the lead back up to 68-64 when D.J. Casados hit the first of two free throws with :22.3 left, but Romero hit a 3 to make it 68-67 at :13.7. Diego Perea hit a pair of free throws with :11.1 to make it 70-67, which set the stage for Jeremiah Olivas. “When he made that, I thought we were going to win,” Branch said. “I thought we had a shot right there.” But on a night that proved to be bittersweet, everybody got what it needed — and it might have been the greatest gift 2AA ever received.
Webber: Onus for change falls on schools Continued from Page B-1 morning. We can sit and point fingers all day at the Aggies and their remarkable lack of self-control. Ross-Miller acted childishly by chucking the ball at an opponent and then acting
as if nothing happened. Dixon, figuratively speaking, hit below the belt with his haymaker of a sucker punch. Even a handful of others, like Daniel Mullings, demonstrated a grotesque lack of control by running into trouble rather than away from it. While we’re at it, we also
can sit and rip San Diego State players Dwayne Polee and Skylar Spencer for losing their cool during a postgame incident in The Pit a week ago. Neither reacted appropriately when at least one idiotic Lobo fan threw a drink on them and others cast down explicative-laden insults.
While fans should be held accountable, the onus for change falls on the schools themselves. It takes better security, better facility management, better game operations. If you give the impression that fans can take control, the situation will never improve.

MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: SPRING TRAINING
McCann homers off Scherzer, Yankees top Tigers
By Noah Trister
The Associated Press
LAKELAND, Fla. — Max Scherzer allowed a secondinning homer by Yankees newcomer Brian Yankees 7 McCann, but the Tigers 4 Detroit right-hander was otherwise sharp in his first start of the spring Friday, yielding only that one hit in the Tigers’ 7-4 loss to the New York Yankees. Scherzer, the American League’s Cy Young Award winner, struck out two without a walk. “Anything can happen in your first time out,” Scherzer said. “You can come out here and walk the house, or you can come in and be dominant. You just never know.” Three of New York’s top free agent signings from the offseason — McCann, Carlos Beltran and Jacoby Ellsbury — made the trip to Lakeland to face
Ex-safety Sharper surrenders in rape case The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES — Former NFL All-Pro safety Darren Sharper surrendered to Los Angeles police after being named in a warrant involving a rape case in New Orleans. Sharper, 38, also is under investigation in sexual assault cases in FlorDarren ida, Nevada Sharper and Arizona and has pleaded not guilty to rape charges in Los Angeles. Sharper’s surrender Thursday night had been arranged in advance, LAPD Officer Bruce Borihan said. He was being held at the downtown Metropolitan Detention Center. In a bail motion filed in the California case, Los Angeles County Investigator John Maccharella described a pattern in which the former football star met women at clubs or parties and lured them to a hotel room, where they were allegedly drugged and raped. Lawyers for Sharper, who played in the NFL from 1997 to 2010 primarily with the Green Bay Packers, have said they would prove that any sexual contact Sharper engaged in was welcomed. The motion says the incidents happened in the past five months, with two occurring within a day in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Nev. Maccharella said he was told a woman went to a New Orleans bar with Sharper, consumed an alcoholic beverage provided by him and blacked out. She awoke the next morning while being sexually assaulted, the bail motion stated, noting that an exam later showed Sharper’s DNA was present. Another man facing rape charges in the New Orleans case turned himself in to police there on Friday. Erik Nunez, 26, was booked on two counts of aggravated rape stemming from alleged assaults last September in New Orleans, police said. Police issued warrants on Thursday for Sharper and Nunez. They face charges in the alleged rape of two women at the same location Sept. 23, police spokeswoman Remi Braden said. Sharper’s New Orleans-based attorney, Nandi Campbell, and attorney Leonard B. Levine, who represents Sharper in the California case, did not return telephone calls seeking comment. If convicted in the California case, Sharper could face more than 30 years in state prison. If convicted of aggravated rape in Louisiana, both Sharper and Nunez could face life imprisonment.

Detroit’s split squad. McCann’s drive to right leading off the second was the only hit by that trio. “I don’t know if I’ve ever hit a home run this early in camp,” said McCann, who left the
Atlanta Braves for an $85 million, five-year deal with New York. “I don’t know if it’s a good sign or a bad sign.” Gary Sanchez, Jose Pirela and Yangervis Solarte also homered for the Yankees.
Starting time: Adam Warren is one of a few candidates in the mix to become New York’s No. 5 starter. The righthander allowed a double and two walks in the first inning, but baserunning mistakes by Detroit prevented any scoring. Warren allowed another double in the second but again kept the Tigers off the board. “A little jumpy the first inning,” Warren said. “I’m not pleased with the walks, but I know that’s not normal for me.” Baserunning blues: The Tigers expect to be faster on the basepaths this season after trading Prince Fielder for Ian Kinsler and signing fleet-footed outfielder Rajai Davis. Detroit spent much of Friday’s game running into outs, but manager Brad Ausmus wasn’t upset with his team’s aggressiveness. “We want them to take chances now,” Ausmus said. “You hope that creates kind of an overall mentality of baserun-
ning as a team.” Davis doubled in the first, then was picked off second. Miguel Cabrera was thrown out to end that inning in bizarre fashion when he tried to go from first to third on a walk, hoping to catch the Yankees off guard. “Miggy saw the third baseman over — the third baseman was playing over toward the shortstop hole,” Ausmus said. “Miggy’s not just trotting to second. He’s going to second and he’s aware of where people are. He’s into the game.” Torii Hunter was cut down at the plate when he tried to score from second on Cabrera’s single in the third, and in the sixth, Steven Moya was thrown out trying to stretch a single to a double. Trainer’s room: Tigers: Ace Justin Verlander said he’s still “on track” after throwing about 50 pitches Friday. Verlander had surgery in January following a groin injury but hopes to be ready for the start of the season.
Yankees: Outfielder Alfonso Soriano worked out for the fourth straight day after being sidelined by flu-like symptoms, and said he still feels a little dizzy at times. Soriano hopes to play soon in his first spring training game. New York’s Michael Pineda, another candidate for the last spot in the rotation, will pitch Sunday in a simulated game. He missed the last two years after right shoulder surgery. Family matter: While Verlander works his way back from his operation, his younger brother Ben was playing left field for the Tigers. Ben Verlander was one of 13 minor leaguers who joined the team’s split squad for the game. He went hitless in two at-bats. “To be able to come out here and play with these guys, to this point is one of the best experiences of my life,” Ben Verlander said. “To say there weren’t nerves would be a lie. There were a lot of nerves.”
GOLF: HONDA CLASSIC
McIlroy soars; Woods nearly misses cut
By Doug Ferguson
The Associated Press
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — Golf is starting to feel easy again for Rory McIlroy, who bounced back from a sloppy start Friday in the Honda Classic for a 4-under 66 that gave him his first 36-hole lead on the PGA Tour in 18 months. Tiger Woods is making it look hard. McIlroy recovered from two early bogeys by running off six birdies in a 10-hole stretch. He looked solid from tee-to-green, hit putts with growing confidence and wound up with a oneshot lead over Brendon de Jonge. “I knew that with the way I’m playing and the confidence in my ability, I would be able to get those shots back,” McIlroy said. “I didn’t panic. I didn’t try to do anything different. Just tried to keep playing the way I was.” He was at 11-under 129. Woods felt fortunate to still be playing. He was over the cut line after scrambling for a bogey on the 11th hole and wound up with a 69 to make the cut on the number. Woods hit only two greens over his last nine holes. His lone birdie on the back nine was a chip-in on the 13th after he missed the green with a wedge. “It was a grind, there’s no doubt about it,” Woods said. “I didn’t hit it very good. Just one of those days where I fought out a number, which was good.” Because 79 players made the cut, there will be another cut to top 70 and ties on Saturday. Woods missed the 54-hole cut the last time he played on the PGA Tour at Torrey Pines. And at least he’s still playing the weekend. That wasn’t the case for Phil Mickelson. Playing the Honda Classic for the first time in 12 years, he had a 71 to miss the cut. So did Henrik Stenson, the No. 3 player in the world, with rounds of 73-76. McIlroy knew the feeling a year ago, when he took a steep fall from No. 1 in the world while changing equipment and trying to live up to high expectations, leading to his snap decision to walk off the course after 26 holes last year at the Honda Classic. A growing gallery in warm sunshine at PGA National saw a familiar game — the McIlroy who won the Honda Classic two years ago. Swinging freely and putting beautifully, McIlroy hit his stride on his back nine with four birdies in five holes, including the par-5 third when he

smashed a drive some 35 yards past Adam Scott and had only a 6-iron into the green on the 539-yard hole. De Jonge, who has never won on the PGA Tour, played early in the afternoon when the wind picked up and put eight birdies on his card in a 64. He was tied for the lead when he missed the green with a wedge on No. 9 and made bogey. Even so, he’ll be in the last group Saturday with McIlroy. “I think I might have got a little bit of switch in the wind,” de Jonge said. Russell Henley had a 68 and was three shots behind. Russell Knox of Scotland had the low round Friday at 63 and was four shots back along with Lee Westwood (65). But the focus is clearly on McIlroy, who each week looks to be getting better. “This year is obviously a lot different,” McIlroy said. “Got off to a good start. I’m confident. I’m playing well.
This is the second straight tournament I’ve opened with a 63, so if I can keep building on these good starts, then hopefully I can start converting.” After a 63 in Dubai, he said he was pressing too much in the final round and wound up in a tie for ninth. Friday was another step in the right direction, despite two errant tee shots on the 11th and 12th holes that led to bogeys. His round changed with a tee shot into 6 feet on the 16th hole for a birdie, and then a 12-foot birdie on the 18th to wrap up his front nine and earn back the two shots he had dropped. After a 45-foot birdie attempt on the second hole rimmed all the way around and out of the cup, Boy Wonder took off. He two-putted the par-5 third. He hit a wedge into 4 feet on the next hole. He rolled in a 30-foot birdie putt down the hill at the par-5 fifth. Then, after a tough par save on the
sixth, he sank another 30-foot birdie putt that McIlroy made look routine. The gallery is kept 100 yards from the green, so the only applause came from a few marshals. It sounded like a tap-in for par. McIlroy reacted that way, too. “Watching Rory play is amazing when he’s swinging like this,” Scott said after his own great recovery. The Masters champ put shots in the water on the 16th and 17th holes, both times making double bogey, and it looked as though his return to golf after a six-week break would be a short one. But the Australian ran off four birdies on the front nine for a 70. It will take a lot more to catch McIlroy, who has taken only 49 putts through two rounds. “That’s probably the lowest putting total after 36 I’ve probably had, maybe in my career,” he said. “So it’s obviously going in the right direction.”
MIXED MARTIAL ARTS
Belfort gives up title shot after Nevada bans TRT
By Greg Beacham
The Associated Press
Vitor Belfort dropped out of his upcoming UFC middleweight title shot on Thursday a few hours after the Nevada Athletic Commission banned testosterone replacement therapy. Belfort was scheduled to fight 185-pound champion Chris Weidman at UFC 173 on May 24. His title shot was given to Lyoto Machida by UFC President Dana White. UFC 173 is the next major card in Las Vegas, the UFC’s hometown. The influential Nevada commission voted unanimously on Thursday to stop granting therapeutic use exemptions for TRT, closing a widely criticized loophole that allowed mixed martial arts fighters to
compete on steroids. “As other jurisdictions may follow suit, I am going to drop my TRT program and compete in MMA without it,” Belfort said in a statement Vitor Belfort provided to Fox, the UFC’s broadcast partner. “Given the time constraints involved between now and my proposed next bout in May, I have determined not to apply for a license to fight in Nevada at this time.” The 36-year-old Belfort has been open about his use of synthetic testosterone in recent years. His sanctioned steroid use has coincided with a career
resurgence for the former UFC light heavyweight champion, who won three consecutive bouts by early-round knockout in 2013 while fighting in his native Brazil. Belfort claimed he needed TRT because of low testosterone, an argument which generated wide criticism because he failed a drug test for elevated testosterone in 2006 following a bout in Las Vegas for the Pride promotion against Dan Henderson, another acknowledged TRT user. Use of performance-enhancing drugs can lower the user’s natural testosterone levels. Belfort hadn’t fought in Nevada since February 2011, before his announced TRT use began. He had intended to apply for an exemption to use syn-
thetic testosterone before UFC 173. White and the UFC have been increasingly critical of TRT use in recent months, with White telling The Associated Press in January he supported the elimination of therapeutic use exemptions for testosterone. White hailed the Nevada commission’s ruling Thursday. “We believe our athletes should compete based on their natural abilities and on an even playing field,” White said. “We also intend to honor this ruling in international markets where, due to a lack of governing bodies, the UFC oversees regulatory efforts for our live events. We encourage all athletic commissions to adopt this ruling.”

But I think after
that I kind of realized that I can really do this and I can make a career out of it.” For now, however, Bairstow said he has his sights set on more immediate goals, like helping the Lobos sweep the conference and conference tournament titles for a third straight year and leading the program into the NCAA tournament. “I’m looking forward to the challenges again and trying to do what we haven’t done in the past,” he said. “And we’re in the hunt this year so we’ll see how that finishes out. But then there’s what we haven’t done in March the last two years and to try to get some success there. That would be fun.”

1. Tiny, green parrots of Southeast Asia like to roost hanging _______ ______. or hundreds of years, parrots large and small have been kept as pets. Perhaps they were first captured for food or for their colorful feathers, but when it was discovered they could “talk,” they became pets rather than dinner. There are more than 350 kinds of parrots. Some are only 3 inches long, while others
grow to be more than 3 feet long. All parrots have short legs with two toes that point forward and two toes that point backward. This arrangement of toes makes it possible for parrots to grasp the fruits and nuts they like to eat. It also helps them to climb and even hang upside down.
Skills: Life Science: Recognize that different animals have different features that help them thrive in different places.
2. How many inches long can the blue Hyacinth Macaw grow to be? __________ In ancient Rome, parrots were kept in silver cages and taught to say the above phrase. Unscramble the letters to find out the phrase. ANSWER: Hail Emperor!

Should busy, stressed-out kids have to do housework? Experts say yes
Making time for chores By Lisa A. Flam
The Associated Press
t’s the dirty work of home life: dusting the shelves, mopping the floors and doing the laundry, load after load. Yet asking kids to help has gotten harder for some parents, caught up in the blur of today’s competitive, timepressed, child-focused world. “Parents feel very conflicted about getting their kids involved in housework,” says child psychologist Eileen Kennedy-Moore, who sees a wide range of what kids are asked to do and how strongly the completion of chores is enforced. Parents feel resentful if their kids don’t help, she says, yet many worry about adding housework to their children’s burden, already so heavy with school, sports and other activities that many don’t get enough sleep. “It’s another thing on the to-do list, and it seems less important than making sure they did their homework or get to soccer practice,” said Kennedy-Moore, a co-author of Smart Parenting for Smart Kids (Jossey-Bass, 2011). Miriam Arond, director of the Good Housekeeping Research Institute, notes a change over the last two decades, with parents now feeling “tremendous pressure” to enrich their children, hiring tutors before they fall behind, just for a leg up. And with many parents working and kids busy after school, family time is more precious. Yet kids should still be expected to pitch in, experts say. Through chores, children gain a feeling of competence as they learn skills that will carry into adulthood, and they benefit by making a contribution to their family. “It’s very important to counter a sense of entitlement,” says Arond. “It’s important emotionally because it gives children the sense that they can do something, that they’re part of the family, that we’re all in this together,” she says. “Emotionally, parents don’t realize that it is very strengthening for a child. It helps them feel secure, they have a role, they feel rooted. Sometimes parents feel apologetic about giving

children chores.” Not first lady Michelle Obama, who has talked about her daughters having to make their own White House beds. And not Andrea Cherry of Kingwood, Texas, who has passed on her childhood practice of doing chores to her own children. As toddlers, they began with the game of sock sorting, and now, at ages 8 and 6, have graduated to “extensive” daily chores. Lily makes her bed and prepares breakfast for herself and her little brother. She cleans bathroom sinks with cleaning wipes, tidies the floors with a Swiffer and is learning to vacuum. Aiden feeds the dog and delivers toilet paper to the bathrooms. Both help with laundry and the dishes. For Cherry, 38, who works full time, having the kids help makes it possible for her and her husband to have enough time to take the kids to soccer practices and games. Equally important, it fills them with the same idea of family responsibility that Cherry was raised with. “They make a substantial contri-
bution to the family, and it’s important because it teaches them about taking care of the family, family is first, and they are responsible members of the family,” said Cherry. “I’m proud of them.” While Cherry feels that she requires more of her kids than most parents in her area, Andrea Cameron, a San Diego mother of girls ages 2 and 8 who works occasionally, believes that she asks less than most. Her third-grader, Siobhan, has been dancing since age 2, aspires to be a ballerina or own a dance studio, and dances every day after school — weekends too, during performance season. The family is always pressed for time, driving back and forth to school and dance class. “We try to throw in a few [chores] here and there, mainly her room, whatever we can squeeze in,” says Cameron, 33. “I’d rather let her do what she loves and what she looks at as her future career than take it away from her and make her stay home and clean the house.” No matter how busy a family is, Kennedy-Moore advises parents
to ask kids for at least the minimum effort. “You don’t want to set it up where the kid is the honored guest and the parents are the servants,” she said. The best way to start is to enlist kids when they are young, about 2½, so it becomes a regular part of their lives, Arond says. A toddler can clean up toys and sort socks; make it fun with songs or by making it a game. By elementary school, kids can hang up wet towels and can dust. They can load the dishwasher by 8 or 9. Teens can do their own laundry. Whether kids’ household labor should be rewarded is a disputed point, with one camp believing that kids should get an allowance as payment for chores, and another saying the work is for the good of the family and should be done without financial reward. Either way, experts say giving kids a pass on chores is a disservice. “A child who is spoiled, it’s going to work against them when they’re adults,” Arond says. Employers can’t afford to hire divas, she said. “Don’t raise divas at home.”

Tough class? That’s a good thing By Jay Mathews
The Washington Post
y wife surfs the Internet more than I do and delights in sharing her discoveries. “You’ll like this comment,” she said last week. A reader wrote that the rising number of students failing Advanced Placement tests “could be a response to Jay Mathews’ ridiculous Challenge Index.” It was nice to be noticed, and the reader had a point. I have been rating high schools since 1998 with an index that measures the portion of students taking AP, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education courses and tests, not how well the students perform on them. The reader was commenting on a thoughtful post by education blogger Natalie Wexler expressing concern about “putting students in a class they’re not prepared for,” such as AP. Many people wonder why schools do that. Doesn’t that discourage the students? Isn’t it a waste of their time to try to learn something so far
above their level? Those are legitimate worries. But after 31 years watching and interviewing hundreds of AP and IB teachers who welcome everyone into their classes, I am convinced that schools that challenge average or even below-average students that way have the right idea. What critics of that approach don’t understand are nuances in what motivates teenagers and what happens when courses lack the incorruptible exams provided by AP, IB and AICE. I invented the Challenge Index, the core of the America’s Most Challenging High Schools list on washington post.com, to dramatize the success of schools like Garfield High School in East Los Angeles. Most education experts, people as wise and experienced as Wexler, assumed Garfield students were not ready for the heavy homework and long exams in AP. Yet in 1987, two teachers at that school, Jaime Escalante and Ben Jimenez,
produced 26 percent of all the Mexican American students in the country who passed an AP Calculus test with a score of 3 or higher. How did Garfield succeed when other schools with ill-prepared students did not? When the film Stand and Deliver was made about Escalante, the popular explanation was that he had a unique genius that other teachers could not replicate. Few noticed that Jimenez, no different from thousands of other good teachers, got the same results doing what Escalante did, giving kids more encouragement and time to learn. If you visit schools that do that today, you will discover that the students who struggle in AP classes are not discouraged by the difficulty of the material when they are taught by encouraging teachers. AP to them is like going one-on-one against LeBron James. They don’t score much, but they improve and are proud to have a tough challenge.

to get a complete physical from his doctor. Sometimes there is a physical or neurological reason for a bizarre change in behavior. Otherwise, consider that your husband may be trying to isolate you, the mark of a potential abuser, and using the jewelry to assuage your concerns. The National Domestic Violence Hotline (thehotline.org) at 1-800-7997233 can help you sort it out. Dear Annie: I take issue with your response to “Tired of Rude Family in Carolina,” whose inconsiderate sister and niece refuse to inform the hostess when they are bringing an additional guest (usually the niece’s boyfriend) to dinner. The uninvited boyfriend is probably unaware of these family dynamics. Why not seat him where the inconsiderate sister would have been, next to the niece, and put the sister on the piano bench with a paper plate? After a few times of putting the sister in the hot seat, she just might get it. — J.M. in Tennessee Dear J.M.: We think if the boyfriend is always being shoved into an extra chair, he is well aware of the difficulty his presence causes. However, you are absolutely right that the sister should take the hit. Read on: Dear Annie: If this sister brings an uninvited guest to dinner every time, it shouldn’t be a surprise. Just set an extra setting as a matter of course. For many people, there is a long held tradition of setting a place for Jesus. If someone extra shows up, they are welcomed, and that is the seat they are given. — Loyal Reader Dear Annie: I would set up a card table and put place settings of paper plates, plastic utensils and two chairs. When the “late sis” arrived, I would drape a towel over my arm and escort them to their “reserved table.” I’d put a candle in the middle, just for a little class. — Florida

Dear Annie: My wife and I have been happily married for eight years. This is a third marriage for both of us. A few months back, my wife found that I had been visiting Internet porn sites. She became very upset and said this was the same as having sex outside of marriage. This is something I’m not proud of and resolved not to do it again. Well, a few days back, in a moment of weakness, I typed in “nude beach.” She says this is the same as a porn site. I feel it isn’t, because it is a public beach. Seeing how much pain I caused my wife, I won’t go to that site again. However, I would like your opinion. Is this the same as adultery? — No Cheater Dear No Cheater: Deliberately searching out “nude beach” is a way to look for naked bodies without using the word “porn,” but the effect is similar. And while looking at naked bodies is not the same as adultery, it is still a betrayal if it hurts your wife and you have broken your promise to stop. And if you are interacting in real time with real women online, we would consider that a form of cheating. You seem to have a problem with pornography. If you cannot stay away from it, consider that you may have an addiction that requires treatment. Dear Annie: My husband is a control freak in a way that I do not understand. For example, he takes me shopping to purchase expensive jewelry that I do not want but that he insists I get. Recently, my dad moved close by. I told my husband I was going to visit Dad, and he became angry, stating that we don’t have the money to visit relatives. He said he would cancel the gas credit cards if I went. How should a sane person deal with this idiocy? — Confused in Connecticut Dear Confused: If this is recent behavior, please ask your husband

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH A new beginning will become possible. You might want to head in a new direction and do something totally different. Tonight: Entertain at home. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You could make a big difference with a friend who often resents you, yet also admires you. Tonight: A must appearance. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH For some of you, a longterm goal might be in mind, whereas others’ reasons might not be so grounded. Tonight: Your treat. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH A new beginning could create a lot of happiness and excitement. You might wonder what would be best for a friend. Tonight: Whatever pleases you. Jacqueline Bigar
