Crews will begin shooting scenes in Santa Fe this month for a new historical television series dealing with Los Alamos and the Manhattan Project, Gov. Susana Martinez and several television executives announced Wednesday. The governor made the announcement at the site of the old Bruns Army Hospital adjacent to the campus of the John Santa Fe University of Art and Design, where crews have been Benjamin Hickey busy in recent weeks rehabilitating old Bruns buildings to be used as sets in the series, called Manhattan. The Bruns location includes sets that will be used for the offices, laboratories and homes of the people who built the first atomic bomb during World War II. The show will debut on WGN America in July, said John Olivia Williams Wax, a senior vice president of programming for the network. Thirteen episodes are to be filmed in Santa Fe and various other locales in the state. It’s a production by a partnership including WGN America, Skydance Television and Lionsgate Television.

on’t expect any major changes at City Hall under the new Gonzales administration. At least not right away. A day after sweeping into office, Mayor-elect Javier Gonzales said Wednesday he plans a 90-day transition period that includes soliciting input from city councilors and others to develop a list of traits that Santa Fe wants in a city manager. Acting City Manager Brian Snyder has been filling in since May. “The most important message I want to send to the public is that it’s important for us to be deliberate in developing a process to select a city manager and to move to a more permanent administration because of the major amount of issues that are facing the city,” Gonzales said in a telephone interview. “We just can’t rush into making appointments,” he said. Gonzales, who won a four-year term, said it’s critical for an organization to get the right people in top management.

Officials: No health risks for nuke site workers By Susan Montoya Bryan

ALBUQUERQUE — Thirteen employees who were exposed to radiation during a leak at the nation’s only underground nuclear waste dump aren’t likely to experience any health effects, federal officials said Wednesday.

samples taken from the employees came back negative for plutonium and americium, the two radioactive isotopes that were detected in preliminary tests. The latest samples have been sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to be verified, officials said. “Biological testing continues on other workers who were at the site following the initial exposure event, and there is always the possibility of positive exposure results

In brief

NEW YORK — Target Corp.’s executive ranks have suffered their first casualty since hackers stole credit card numbers and other personal data of millions of the retailer’s shoppers last year. The nation’s second largest discounter told The Associated Press that Beth Jacob, who has overseen everything from Target’s website to its internal computer systems as chief information officer since 2008, has resigned. The company said it will search for an interim CIO. The departure, which was effective Wednesday, comes as Target works to overhaul some of its divisions that handle security and technology following the massive data breach.

Israel engages Hezbollah militans on Syria’s border BEIRUT — Israel fired on Hezbollah militants who were attempting to plant a bomb on Syria’s border with the occupied Golan Heights, the Israeli army said Wednesday, as frictions with the Lebanese Shiite movement rise. The incident comes at a time of heightened tensions between Israel and Hezbollah. The Iran-backed group had vowed to retaliate after an alleged Israeli strike on one of its positions last week, its first attack on Hezbollah inside Lebanese territory since the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah war. Also Wednesday, Israeli naval forces seized a ship laden with rockets allegedly bound for militants in the Gaza Strip, and officials accused Iran of orchestrating the delivery in an elaborate 5,000mile journey that included covert stops across the region.

Divided Venezuela marks the anniversary of Chávez’s death

Ex-IRS official won’t testify to tea party targeting

By Christopher Sherman and Fabiola Sanchez

WASHINGTON — The former Internal Revenue Service official at the heart of the controversy over the agency’s targeting of conservative groups once again refused to answer questions at a House hearing Wednesday amid signs that a congressional investigation into the affair may be stalling. Lois Lerner headed the IRS division that improperly singled out tea party and other conservative groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status during the 2010 and 2012 elections. On Wednesday she was recalled to testify before the House Oversight Committee for the second time in a year. But just like the first time, she declined to answer questions about her involvement. Appearing with her lawyer, Lerner invoked her Fifth Amendment rights at least nine times in response to questions by committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif.

CARACAS, Venezuela year after President Hugo Chávez’s death, Venezuela is mired in economic crisis and daily anti-government protests, and for many people Wednesday’s pomp-soaked anniversary of his passing was a time for genuine sadness and nostalgia. Even Venezuelans in the opposition said the Chávez days were preferable to the food scarcity, inflation and crime gripping the country now, and the deep feelings held by Chávistas for the late leader were evident. Still, the big crowd gathered at the capital’s parade grounds for a celebration of Chávez was smaller than a year ago for the observance after he died of cancer on March 5, 2013. “This isn’t like an anniversary; it’s like we’re mourning,” said Gledis Hernandez, 43, who took her daughter and niece to the memorial parade in Caracas. She said Chávez gave her an apartment when her home was washed away in floods, but “right now we’re living in a sad situation.” Outside the parade grounds, vendors hawked Chávez T-shirts, pins and hats. Visitors were given a newspaper upon entering the area with the headline “Chávez lives!” on the front and a cardboard cutout of Chávez riding a bike tucked within. Inside, tanks and soldiers paraded before a waving President Nicolas Maduro and military jets screamed overhead. The military parade, attended by Chávez friends Bolivian President Evo Morales, Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega and Cuban President Raul Castro among others, kicked off a 10-day commemoration. Afterward, they headed to a ceremony at Chávez’s hilltop mausoleum to be followed by the television premier of an Oliver Stone documentary called My Friend Hugo. Maduro used the parade and a speech later

Officials: CIA probes Senate interrogation report WASHINGTON — U.S. officials say the CIA is investigating whether its officers monitored members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, which oversees the intelligence agency. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein is telling reporters that the CIA inspector general is investigating how her committee investigated allegations of CIA abuse in a Bush-era detention and interrogation program. Two officials familiar with the investigation say the senator confirmed the CIA is looking into allegations of wrongdoing, including whether its own officers improperly monitored Senate investigators and possibly accessed their computers.

at the mausoleum to bash the United States as the “imperial power of the north.” He called Panama’s government a “lackey” and announced he was breaking off relations with that country because it asked for the Organization of American States to discuss the situation in Venezuela. Maduro considers the OAS to be dominated by Washington. “We don’t accept the interventionism of anyone, because our international policy is a policy of peace, of cooperation, of respect, of the antiimperialist Latin American union,” Maduro said. Maduro has reached a stalemate with the political opposition. His administration shows no sign of crumbling, but he appears unable to stop the daily student-led protests that the government says have left 18 dead. He moves ahead with a peace effort the opposition calls farcical while his foreign minister rebuffs offers for outside mediation. Inflation in Venezuela hit 56 percent last year, slashing the buying power of the poor whom Chávez lifted above the poverty line using the state’s oil profits. Luisa Teresa Guzmán, 64, said she still cries over Chávez. Wearing a red beret, red shirt and red pants at the entrance to the parade grounds, she said Maduro can carry the revolution forward. “That’s why Chávez left him [Maduro] there.” Protests broke out in various parts of the capital and the interior. “I’m fighting for my country,” said Maria Cortez, a 63-year-old community organizer. Dangling from a street sign high in a middle-class Caracas neighborhood was a lifesize dummy dressed in surgical scrubs with a sign that called for Cuban doctors to leave Venezuela. “It’s been 15 years of keeping our mouths shut, and the people can’t take it anymore.” Back at the parade rounds, 33-year-old Nina Ruiz said she only went to the parade because she works for a government agency that made her go. “Everything is out of control,” she said. “Nothing is the same.”

ALBANY, N.Y. — Under pressure from gun control advocates, Facebook agreed Wednesday to delete posts from users selling illegal guns or offering weapons for sale without background checks. A similar policy will apply to Instagram, the company’s photosharing network, Facebook said. The policies announced Wednesday will be implemented over the next few weeks. “We will remove reported posts that explicitly indicate a specific attempt to evade or help others evade the law,” the company said in a statement Wednesday. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and gun control groups have been asking Facebook to implement such restrictions. New York requires a federal background check for private gun sales and prohibits sales of some popular firearms, such as the AR-15. His office collected evidence that some website users were willing to sell guns without background checks or otherwise violate the sales restrictions of states with tougher gun control laws. Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the group backed by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and Moms Demand Action have been pressuring Facebook to address the issue. Petitions from Moms Demand Action calling on Facebook to prohibit illegal gun sales had more than 230,000 signatures. “Responsible social media sites know that it is in no one’s interest for their sites to become the 21st-century black market in dangerous and illegal goods that place our families and communities at risk,” Schneiderman said. “I congratulate Facebook and Instagram for taking these simple, common-sense steps to protect the safety and security of their users.” Facebook said it will remove messages for buying or selling guns that indicate an attempt to evade the law. It also will issue advisories to users offering to sell “commonly regulated goods” — such as guns, tobacco, alcohol and adults products — to obey relevant laws. It also will keep children from seeing such posts. Federal law prohibits gun sales to anyone under indictment or convicted of a crime punishable by a year in prison, fugitives, drug addicts, those who are adjudicated mentally defective, immigrants in the U.S. illegally, anyone dishonorably discharged from the military, anyone convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence or subject to a court order of protection after being judged at a hearing to be a physical threat to a partner or child. The FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System lists people prohibited from buying guns.

Senate rejects civil rights nominee By Jonathan Weisman

The New York Times

WASHINGTON — The long shadow of Mumia Abu-Jamal, whose trial for the murder of a Philadelphia police officer became an international cause célèbre, fell over the Senate on Wednesday as lawmakers from both parties rejected President Barack Obama’s nominee to head the Justice Department’s civil rights division. Debo P. Adegbile, who headed the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund when it represented Abu-Jamal decades after his conviction, could not overcome a concerted campaign by Republicans, conservative activists and law enforcement organizations, still infuriated by the killing of the officer, Daniel Faulkner. In the years after his conviction, Abu-Jamal was embraced by the likes of Norman Mailer, and Salman Rushdie. Parisians named a street after him. But it was Adegbile, 32 years after the slaying, who took the fall when the Senate voted, 47-52, to reject his confirmation. The vote marked the first defeat of an Obama administration nominee since Senate Democrats enacted a rules change in November that blocked Republican filibusters on virtually all presidential nominations. Since then, numerous judicial and administration nominees have sailed through the Senate, despite Republican protests. The Senate’s Democratic leaders as well as its Judiciary Committee chairman, Patrick J. Leahy of Vermont, pleaded with Democrats to rescue the nominee, extolling his background as the son of a Nigerian and Irish immigrant who rose from poverty and periods of homelessness to an NAACP position once held by Thurgood Marshall. As the head of the NAACP legal fund, Adegbile was not directly involved in Abu-Jamal’s defense, and the group stepped into the case 25 years after the

Nuke: WIPP close to sending air monitoring equipment inside Continued from Page A-1 said ongoing monitoring has turned up no significant off-site contamination. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency backed up those findings Wednesday in a letter to members of New Mexico’s congressional delegation. Ron Curry, the EPA’s regional administrator and the former head of New Mexico’s Environment Department, told the lawmakers that any public health concern would be unlikely, given the initial field measurements and modeling. WIPP is the nation’s first under-

ground nuclear repository and the only facility in the country that can store plutonium-contaminated clothing and tools from Los Alamos National Laboratory and other federal nuclear sites. It has been closed since Feb. 5, when a truck hauling salt through the underground mine caught fire. Several days later, sensors alerted to the release of radiation that exposed the 13 workers who were on the surface. Monitors as far as half a mile away detected elevated levels of plutonium and americium in the air. On Wednesday, Jose Franco, manager of the Energy Depart-

ment’s Carlsbad Field Office, told community members in a letter that the sampling being done by the federal government and others is “showing a positive trend” as levels return to normal. The mine has been off-limits for weeks now, but Franco said WIPP is close to sending air monitoring equipment inside to assess the situation. A special crew is also wrapping up training and expects to enter the mine next week. “We have not faced this kind of challenge in our 15-year history of waste operations, but I have the utmost confidence in the recovery team,” he said in the letter.

of political action committees and other outside groups, despite asking them to stay out of the race. He said he will work to strengthen the city’s public finance laws to do “what we can to create disincentives for outside groups to put money in,” including looking at the possibility of creating a matching fund provision for candidates “who aren’t receiving the benefit of outside groups.” The city may be able to limit campaign contributions to PACs, too, he said. “No public system will ever be free of outside groups, but you can do everything you can to build in safeguards to create a more equal playing field for candidates that are running for office,” he said. Other election-related priorities include redistricting. In January, the city annexed 4,100 acres on the south side and added 13,200 new residents. “We need to look at redistricting District 3,” Gonzales said. “I don’t want to wait until the next redistricting cycle comes into place to make sure that people on the south side have equal representation.” Gonzales also wants to implement runoff elections, which Santa Fe voters previously approved, and make voting more convenient for the public, either by expanding hours or opening polls on weekends. “I think one of reasons why we see such low voter turnout from Districts 3 and 4 is that’s the place where you have many working families that often work more than one job, and it’s difficult to find time and go and vote,” he said.

Study gives hope of repelling HIV The idea of genetically altering people’s cells to make them resist the AIDS virus may seem like a pipe dream, but a new report suggests it can be done. The research involves the first use in humans of “gene editing,” a treatment that zeroes in on a particular gene and disables it. In 12 people infected with HIV, scientists used the technique to get rid of a protein on the patients’ immune cells that the virus must latch onto to invade the cells. Cells were removed from the patients, treated and then dripped back into their bloodstreams through an intravenous line. In theory, if enough cells could be engineered to repel the virus, patients might no longer need antiviral drugs, and might in effect be cured. The experiment was a pilot study, meant to test safety, not efficacy. The New York Times

BOSTON — When scientists made the stunning announcement last year that a baby born with HIV had apparently been cured through aggressive drug treatment just 30 hours after birth, there was immediate skepticism that the child had ever been infected in the first place. But on Wednesday the existence of a second such baby was revealed at an AIDS conference here, leaving little doubt that the treatment had worked. A leading researcher said there might be five more such cases in Canada and three in South Africa. And a clinical trial in which 50 babies who are born infected will be put on drugs within 48 hours is set to begin within three months, the researcher added. If that trial works — and it will take several years of following the babies to determine whether it has — the protocol for treating all the roughly 300,000 babies born infected each year will no doubt change. The second baby, a girl born in Long Beach, Calif., is now 9 months old and free of the virus that causes AIDS. Pediatricians at Miller Children’s Hospital in Long Beach had heard of the first baby, born to a mother in Mississippi with advanced AIDS who had not taken any drugs to protect the fetus. The California doctors tried to replicate that first treatment. They immediately gave the baby three antiretroviral drugs — AZT, 3TC and nevirapine — at the higher doses normally used for treatment rather than for prevention, and never previously recommended

for newborns. It would be wrong to describe the Long Beach baby as “cured” or as “in remission” because she is still on antiretroviral drugs, said Dr. Deborah Persaud, a virus specialist at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center who has been involved in both cases. She describes the baby as “sero-reverted to HIVnegative.” The baby was treated nine hours after being born — as soon as her first HIV test came up positive — and now even ultrasensitive tests can find no virus in her blood or any tissues. “Last year, when we described the Mississippi baby, the report was received with some skepticism,” Persaud said. But since viral DNA and RNA were found in the Long Beach baby’s blood and spinal

fluid, “this baby was definitely infected,” she added, “and now we are unable to detect replication-competent virus.”

The Mississippi baby, now 3 years old and known as the “Mississippi child,” is healthy and still virus-free, Persaud added. That baby, whose name and sex have not been disclosed, was born to a mother who got no prenatal care and was unaware that she was infected. When it was suspected that the baby was infected, it was transferred to the University of Mississippi Medical Center and started on aggressive antiretroviral treatment about 30 hours after birth by a pediatrician who felt that the regular prophylactic regimen would not save a baby at such high risk. Then, 18 months later, the mother stopped seeing doctors and stopped giving her baby the drugs for five months. When she then took the baby back in, alarmed doctors assumed that it would be teeming with virus. Instead, to their astonishment, they found none. And samples taken by Persaud and tested with ultrasensitive assays at her Hopkins laboratory have found none. Very few babies are born infected in the United States each year because mothers usually get drugs to lower their virus levels and protect their babies.

College Board reveals major SAT overhaul Guessing penalty eliminated, essay now optional among changes

College Board President David Coleman attends Wednesday’s event in Austin, Texas, where College Board officials announced updates for the SAT college entrance exam.

By Tamar Lewin

The New York Times

Saying its college admission exams do not focus enough on the important academic skills, the College Board announced on Wednesday a fundamental rethinking of the SAT, ending the long-standing penalty for guessing wrong, cutting obscure vocabulary words and making the essay optional. The president of the College Board, David Coleman, criticized his own test, the SAT, and its main rival, the ACT, saying that both had “become disconnected from the work of our high schools.” In addition, Coleman announced programs to help low-income students, who will now be given fee waivers allowing them to apply to four colleges at no charge. And even before the new exam is introduced in the spring of 2016, the College Board, in partnership with Khan Academy, will offer free online practice problems and instructional videos showing how to solve them. The changes are extensive: The SAT’s rarefied vocabulary challenges will be replaced by words that are


common in college courses, like empirical and synthesis. The math questions, now scattered across many topics, will focus more narrowly on linear equations, functions and proportional thinking. The use of a calculator will no longer be allowed on some of the math sections. The new exam will be available on paper and computer, and the scoring will revert to the old 1,600 scale — from 2,400 — with top scores of 800 on math and 800 on what will now be called “evidence-based reading and writing.” The optional essay, which strong writers may choose to do, will have a separate score. Once the pre-eminent college admissions exam, the SAT has lost

ground to the ACT, which is based more directly on high school curriculums and is now taken by a slightly higher number of students. Last year, 1.8 million students took the ACT and 1.7 million the SAT. The new SAT will not quell all criticism of standardized tests. Critics have long pointed out — and Coleman admits — that high school grades are a better predictor of college success than standardized test scores. More colleges have in recent years become “test optional,” allowing students to forgo the exams and submit their grades, transcripts and a graded paper. For many students, Coleman said, the tests are mysterious and “filled with unproductive anxiety.” And,

he acknowledged, they inspire little respect from classroom teachers: only 20 percent, he said, see the collegeadmission tests as a fair measure of the work their students have done. The suggested changes were wellreceived among many educators, but Coleman’s comments about the ACT drew harsh words from an executive of that company. “David Coleman is not a spokesman for the ACT, and I acknowledge his political gamesmanship, but I don’t appreciate it,” Jon Erickson, president of ACT’s education division, said. “It seems like they’re mostly following what we’ve always done.” Philip Ballinger, the director of undergraduate admissions at the University of Washington, said he admired Coleman’s heartfelt “damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead” approach to improving the SAT and appreciated the effort to tame the testprep industry. Some changes will make the new SAT more like the ACT, which for the past two years has outpaced the SAT in test takers. But beyond the particulars, Coleman emphasized that the three-hour exam — three hours and 50 minutes with the essay — had been redesigned with an eye toward reinforcing the skills and evidence-based thinking that students should be learning in high school, and moving away from a need for test-

Pope defensive as sex-abuse panel lags Victims’ advocates criticize Vatican for lack of action By Nicole Winfield The Associated Press

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis is coming under increasing criticism that he simply doesn’t get it on sex abuse. Three months after the Vatican announced a commission of experts to study best practices on protecting children, no action has been taken, no members appointed, no statute outlining the commission’s scope approved. Francis hasn’t met with any victims, hasn’t moved to oust a bishop convicted in 2012 of failing to report a suspected abuser, and on Wednesday insisted that the church had been unfairly attacked on abuse, using the defensive rhetoric of the Vatican from a decade ago. Victims’ advocates said his tone was archaic and urged Francis to show the same compassion he offers the sick, the poor and disabled to people who were raped by priests when they were kids. “Under Pope Francis, the Vatican continues to deny its role in creating and maintaining a culture where upholding the reputation of the church is prioritized over the safety of children,” said Maeve Lewis, executive director of the Irish victims’ support group One in Four. To be sure, Francis adores children like a father — it’s on display every Wednesday during his general audience — and he has continued to defrock pedophile priests. But unlike Pope Benedict XVI, he has rarely spoken out about abuse, indicating it clearly has not been a priority in his first year as pope. Instead, he has focused on introducing the world to his merciful vision of the church and reforming the Vatican bureaucracy. The Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said the upheaval of those reforms had delayed getting the commission off the ground. But he said there was no doubt it would, and that it would eventually propose new initiatives to protect children and be a model for the church and society at large. “I’m waiting for it, and I hope with all my heart [and I know that qualified experts have been contacted in an exploratory way to see if they would be available],” Lombardi said in an email. Francis has only spoken out a few times on abuse and his toughest words weren’t even pronounced. Francis apparently scrapped his prepared Dec. 2 speech to bishops from the Netherlands, who have been dealing with revelations

that some 20,000 children were sexually abused in Dutch Catholic institutions over the past 65 years. Instead, Francis spoke to the bishops off-the-cuff. On Jan. 31, Francis did mention his new sex abuse commission in a speech to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which handles sex abuse cases. In his final words before imparting his blessing, he said children must always be protected and that he wants his new sex abuse study commission to be a model. “For a year we’ve been saying that while Pope Francis is making progress on church finance and governance he’s done nothing — literally nothing — that protects a single child, exposes a single predator or prevents a single cover-up,” said Barbara Dorris of the main U.S. victim’s group SNAP. Francis was asked about protecting children by the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera. Francis acknowledged the “profound” wounds abuse leaves and credited Benedict with having turned the church around. Benedict in 2001 took over handling abuse cases because bishops were moving pedophiles around rather than punishing them. He updated the Vatican’s in-house norms and in his final two years as pope defrocked nearly 400 priests himself. But Francis then got defensive: “The Catholic Church is perhaps the only public institution that has moved with transparency and responsibility. No one has done more. And yet the church is the only one that has been attacked.” The former Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio has said that while he was archbishop of Buenos Aires, he never dealt with a case of sex abuse, and indeed the scandal has yet to explode in Argentina on the scale that it has elsewhere, including in neighboring Chile. But the online database has cited several cases of Argentine bishops siding with abused clerics and imposing gag orders on victims — practices that were common in the U.S. before American bishops changed their tune amid the explosion of cases in 2002 and resulting avalanche of lawsuits. Buenos Aires native Sebastian Cuattromo, for example, says he approached Bergoglio’s archdioceses in 2002 seeking help to get out of a

Sometimes, students will be asked not just to select the right answer but to justify it by choosing the quotation from a text that provides the best supporting evidence for their answer. The revised essay, in particular, will shift in that direction. Students now write about their experiences and opinions, with no penalty for incorrect assertions, even egregiously wrong ones. In the future, though, students will receive a source document and be asked to analyze it for its use of evidence, reasoning and persuasive or stylistic technique. Starting in the spring of 2016, changes to the SAT will include these: u Instead of arcane “SAT words” (depreciatory, membranous), the vocabulary definitions on the new exam will be those of words commonly used in college courses, such as synthesis and empirical. u The essay, required since 2005, will be optional. Those who choose to write an essay will be asked to read a passage and analyze the ways its author used evidence, reasoning and elements to build an argument. u The guessing penalty, in which points are deducted for incorrect answers, will be eliminated. u The overall scoring will return to the old 1,600 scales, based on a top score of 800 in reading and math. The essay will have a separate score.

confidentiality agreement he accepted when he settled with a religious order for abuse he suffered as a 13-year-old. He said he wanted the church to know the facts after learning that his abuser had fled to the United States. He said he received no reply, though the abuser was eventually convicted. In an email, Cuattromo said the archdiocese’s dismissive attitude to him and victims in general was evi-

dence of “a clear situation of power which, at least in Argentina and Latin America, the Catholic Church hierarchy continues to enjoy.” Terrence McKiernan of BishopA said it was “breathtaking” that Francis had made the church the victim of the scandal, rather than express sorrow to the thousands of victims or acknowledge the complicity of bishops in covering up the crimes.

OLYMPIA, Wash. — Washington state issued its first legal-marijuana business license Wednesday, launching a new phase in the state’s ambitious effort to regulate a market that has been illegal for more than 75 years. Sean Green, who has operated medical marijuana dispensaries in Spokane and the Seattle suburb of Shoreline, proclaimed the document “beautiful” as it was handed to him at a state Liquor Control Board meeting in Olympia. The license will allow him to grow 21,000 square feet of cannabis at his Spokane facility — the first pot that will be grown for sale under the highly taxed system approved by voters in 2012. The possession of pot became legal for adults over 21 soon after the vote, but it’s still illegal to grow or sell it for recreational use until pot shops open in the state later this year. “Cannabis prohibition is over,” Green declared to applause from a room packed with his supporters. The Liquor Control Board said Green got the first license because he was the first applicant to complete the process. The board also received more than 2,200 retail applications, and is expected to hold lotteries in at least some areas before allowing 334 pot shops statewide. Washington’s first pot stores are expected to open in June or July.

Obama offers extension for canceled individual health plans White House hopes to defuse political issue for Dems in election year By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Warding off the specter of election-year health insurance cancellations, the Obama administration Wednesday announced a two-year extension for individual policies that don’t meet requirements of the new health care law. The decision helps stave off a politi-

cal problem for Democrats in tough re-election battles this fall, especially for senators who in 2010 stood with President Barack Obama and voted to pass his health overhaul. The extension was part of a major package of regulations that sets ground rules for 2015, the second year of government-subsidized health insurance markets under Obama’s law — and the first year that larger employers will face a requirement to provide coverage. Hundreds of pages of provisions affecting insurers, employers and consumers were issued by the Treasury Department and the Department of

Health and Human Services. It will likely take days for lawyers and consultants to fully assess the implications. The cancellation last fall of at least 4.7 million individual policies was one of the most damaging issues in the transition to a new insurance system under Obama’s law. The wave of cancellations hit around the time that the new website was overwhelmed with technical problems that kept many consumers from signing up for coverage. It contradicted Obama’s promise that you can keep your insurance plan if you like it. The latest extension would be valid

for policies issued up to Oct. 1, 2016. It builds on an earlier reprieve issued by the White House. Other highlights include: u An extra month for the 2015 open enrollment season. It will still start Nov. 15, as originally scheduled, after the congressional midterm elections. But it will extend for an additional month, through February 15 of next year. The administration says the schedule change gives insurers, states and federal agencies more time to prepare. This year’s open enrollment started Oct. 1 and ends Mar. 31. u New maximum out-of-pocket

cost levels for 2015. Annual deductibles and copayments for plans sold on the insurance exchanges can’t exceed $6,600 for individuals or $13,200 for families. While not as high as what some insurance plans charged before the law, cost sharing remains a stretch for many. u An update on an unpopular per-member fee paid by most major employer health plans. The assessment for 2015 will be $44 per enrollee, according to the regulations. Revenues from the fee go to help insurers cushion the cost of covering people with serious medical problems.

LOCAL NEWS Dem hopefuls take aim at governor Candidates unite, skewer Martinez on CYFD at forum By Steve Terrell The New Mexican

ALBUQUERQUE — The five candidates seeking the Democratic nod to run for governor didn’t take any serious jabs at one another during a forum Wednesday. But they all took off the gloves when it came to Republican incumbent Susana Martinez. All five Democrats blasted Martinez on a variety of issues. State Sen. Linda Lopez of Albuquerque said the Martinez administration’s freezing of Medicaid funds for mental health providers under investigation for possible fraud

“destroyed” the state’s behavioral health system “in one day.” Longtime government administrator Lawrence Rael said Martinez’s Children, Youth and Families Department failed abused children because the governor “believes in politics before people.” He also said Martinez has waged “a war on education.” State Sen. Howie Morales, referring to Martinez’s previous career as a district attorney, said “New Mexico doesn’t need a prosecutor for governor, we need an educator.” (Morales is a former teacher.) He said Martinez never has had a plan, “except to be re-elected.” Attorney General Gary King noted that his mother, former first lady Alice King, was behind the creation of the CYFD, but the focus on helping children has been lost under

Martinez. He said Martinez’s only plan for the economy has been “trickle-down economics.” Santa Fe businessman Alan Webber said one of Martinez’s major faults was “she doesn’t listen” to people. She said Martinez and Republicans around the country are trying to build an Education Industrial Complex.” About 200 people attended the forum, which was sponsored by the Bernalillo County Democratic Party and moderated by The League of Women Voters. The event was held just days before Saturday’s pre-primary convention. There, delegates will vote on their preference for governor and other state offices.

A former Public Regulation Commission employee, his wife and his attorney teared up in the First District Court in Santa Fe on Wednesday after a jury found the agency had violated the state’s Whistleblower Protection Act and awarded the man $110,000 for emotional distress due to his termination from the agency. Maurice A. Bonal Jr., a former PRC informationtechnology manager, sued the PRC in 2011, claiming his superiors had fired him in retaliation after he reported that some bureau chiefs and other employees were improperly using state computers to visit adult porn sites and other inappropriate websites during work time. Bonal’s attorney, longtime family friend Diego Zamora, said he expects the state to appeal the jury’s verdict. But Steve French, an attorney for the PRC, declined to comment about a possible appeal and referred questions to the state General Services Department. “It’s been a long battle,” said another attorney for Bonal, David K. Thomson, after the verdict. “He [Bonal] deserves a lot of credit for his courage. I mean, you are out there. During the trial, they were still accusing him of things.” The jurors sat through five days of lengthy testimony that dissected the difference between a “hit” and a “visit” to a website, graphic examples of porn sites allegedly accessed by state employees and a detailed timeline of events that culminated in Bonal’s dismissal from his job in October 2010. Zamora said he thinks the pages of evidence from a website tracking program helped convince the jury to side with Bonal. Attorneys for the PRC denied any of the employees named in the lawsuit had been visiting porn sites or improperly surfing the Internet during work. Additionally, they said a computer program the PRC had installed to filter websites was blocking access to legitimate sites that employees needed to complete their job duties. They said Bonal was fired Oct. 31, 2010, for misconduct and insubordination because he had refused to remove the website blocks when he was asked to do so. They also claimed Bonal had violated the state’s security policy by downloading more than 2,000 agency documents to a personal thumb drive. A day after his firing from the PRC — on Nov. 1, 2010 — Bonal was hired as the information technology director at the General Services Department, a higher-paying job. Bonal, the son of a former Santa Fe city councilor of the same name, had worked for the PRC for two years without incident until early August 2010, when he alerted his bosses about the potential misuse of the Internet by Ben Montoya, then chief of the Insurance Fraud Bureau. He testified that Montoya had visited several inappropriate websites, including, and In his testimony, Bonal claimed he alerted upper management, including then Administrative Services Division director Juan Rios, about his concerns and

Jury awards whistle-blower Bonal $110K in suit vs. PRC By Staci Matlock

Using consumer settlement for environmental litigation irks King New Mexico Attorney General Gary King is unhappy with a last-minute budget appropriation for the state Environment Department that would use money from his office to handle litigation. Lawmakers on the Senate Finance Committee set aside $1.5 million for the Environment Department for “environmental litigation, administrative hearings and regulatory matters.” The allocation was approved by the Legislature as part of the budget bill. The money, if approved by Gov. Susana Martinez, will come from the consumer settlement fund in the Attorney General’s Office. “We oppose the Legislature raiding our consumer fund when it appears the money will be used to further the actions of the Environment Department designed to allow large, powerful mining interests to skirt our clean water laws and endanger the drinking water for our children for generations to come,” King said. “We are carefully considering our options for challenging this move by the Legislature and the governor, if she approves the transfer of funds.” King is at odds with Environment Department Secretary Ryan Flynn and the Water Quality Control Commission over a copper rule approved last year. King and his staff believe the rule gives mining companies license to pollute groundwater beneath

New system lets patrons choose seats for events By Uriel J. Garcia The New Mexican


ickets Santa Fe, the nonprofit community box office managed by the Lensic Performing Arts Center, is launching a new ticketing system Thursday that will allow customers to select specific seats online. The state-of-the-art platform used by 400 arts and cultural organizations in the Tessitura Network also allows patrons to be notified about upcoming events in their specific areas of interest and saves seating preferences. Tessitura Software is the same product used by The Santa Fe Opera since 2000, and Tom Morris, the opera’s director of administration, said customers like its features. The system is used to managing the opera’s customer relationships, ticketing, marketing, subscriptions, fundraising, memberships and Web transactions. “Tessitura was the clear choice for us,” Steph Smith, the Lensic’s director of operations and production, said in a news release. “Tessitura will help the Lensic and Tickets Santa Fe operate more efficiently, offer more options for the venues and presenters we work with, and provide better service for our patrons.” According to the news release, patrons will be able to print their tickets at home and purchase subscription tickets to their favorite event series.

Customers can now choose their seats when buying tickets on the Lensic Performing Arts Center’s new website.

Senator slammed for voting no on early education initiative An ad appears in Thursday’s Taos News denouncing state Sen. Carlos Cisneros for voting against a bill that would more funding fo early childhood education programs.

Questa’s Cisneros says he won’t be bullied by watchdog group effort By Milan Simonich The New Mexican

A government watchdog group has bought a full-page advertisement in the Thursday edition of The Taos News to denounce state Sen. Carlos Cisneros, who recently voted against a bill to add $100 million a year to early childhood education programs. The Center for Civic Policy says its ad is the beginning of an education campaign about Cisneros’ voting record. The ad pictures a wide-eyed

girl and asks, “Why Senator Cisneros? Why did you kill early childhood education?” In addition to the advertisement, the center says it will make “several thouSen. Carlos sand calls” to CisCisneros neros’ constituents in Santa Fe, Los Alamos, Rio Arriba and Taos counties. Cisneros, D-Questa, had not heard about the ad until a reporter called him Wednesday, but said he would not be bullied into changing his position on the early education initiative. “If this advocacy group wants to play politics, they can look forward

to my negative vote for the next two years,” he said in an interview. A senator for 29 years, Cisneros does not face a re-election campaign until 2016. He says the early childhood initiative has not impressed him for two reasons. One is the lack of specifics about how the money would be spent, and the other is the conduct of certain advocacy groups. Cisneros is the third senator to be criticized in ads purchased by bill proponents. For its part, the Center for Civic Policy says New Mexico is in a crisis that too many politicians are ignoring. New Mexico ranked 50th among the states last year in child wellbeing, according to a survey by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

The center’s leader says Cisneros has a double standard when it comes to government expenditures. “We throw well over a billion dollars a year at corporations in the form of unaccounted-for tax breaks, yet proposals to make game-changing early childhood education investments die on the vine every year in the Senate Finance Committee. New Mexicans deserve to be able to ask their state senator why,” said Stephanie Maez, CEO of the Center for Civic Policy. The proposed constitutional amendment for early childhood education would take about $100 million annually for 10 years from the state’s largest endowment, the $13.1 billion

The attorneys said the staff had tried to accuse Bonal of lying about a felony on his job application two years earlier.

their operations, contrary to state law. Under the rule, copper mining companies won’t have to seek a variance, as they did in the past, to allow groundwater contamination above water quality standards. Instead, the rule will require liners, monitoring wells and other measures to reduce or recapture pollutants. Flynn says the copper rule calls for a better way to protect groundwater than the variances that the department allowed. King, along with former Environment Department contractor Bill Olson, the nonprofit groups Amigos Bravos and Gila Resources Information Project, and Turner Properties have appealed the decision in the state Court of Appeals.

The consumer settlement fund is derived from revenues won by the Attorney General’s Office, usually in pharmaceutical cases, according to spokesman Phil Sisneros. In late December, for example, GlaxoKlineSmith settled a case over its diabetes drug Avandia for $23 million.

In brief

Adopt a pet at wash-a-dog event A Santa Fe pet bakery and boutique has expanded its services to include dog washing and will kick off the new service with a pet adoption event. Part of the proceeds from the day’s self-service dog wash at Pooch Pantry Bakery & Boutique, 301 N. Guadalupe St., which is set from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, will benefit the Santa Fe animal shelter. For more information, call Pooch Pantry at 820-1130.

Photo contest winners named A cat adopted from a New York rescue group won top honors in the Santa Fe animal shelter’s online photo contest, the High Desert Cat Walk. Sebastian, a longhaired, blackand-white feline, who belongs to Annette and Bob Barletta, received 605 votes. The Barlettas, who live in New York but visit Santa Fe, took second place with their other cat, Gracie, who earned 601 votes. The two, however, asked that their prizes — gift baskets from Teca Tu — A Pawsworthy Emporium & Deli and Zoe and Guido’s Pet Boutique — be donated to the shelter cats. A photo of Misha, a cat belonging to Janice St. Marie and Joe Mowry, took third place with 383 votes. Photos of the top winners will be published in the shelter’s magazine, Animal Tracks, which publishes later in the spring.

Chihuahuas, pit bulls in spotlight Two animal shelters and an animal rescue group are joining forces in March to promote pit bulls and Chihuahuas and find them new homes. The event, called “Find Your Lucky Charm,” will focus on pit bulls and pit-bull mixes from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 15, at PetSmart in Albuquerque, 10248 Coors Bypass. Sunday’s event, held at the same time and location, will include Chihuahuas, organizers said. Both events feature animals from Albuquerque Animal Welfare, Watermelon Ranch and the Santa Fe animal shelter, and will include prizes, free spay/neuter vouchers for pit bulls.

Nev. man takes deal in dog killing LAS VEGAS, Nev. — A 22-year-old Las Vegas man has taken a plea deal in a bid for probation in a case alleging he slashed the throat of the family dog for the thrill of the kill. Jeremy Espiritu pleaded guilty Wednesday to attempting to kill an animal — a charge that can result in a felony or misdemeanor conviction. Espiritu could get probation or up to four years in prison at sentencing May 6 before Clark County District Court Judge Jerome Tao. Authorities say Espiritu admitted stabbing and slitting the throat of the black Labrador mixed breed named Serenity at his parents’ home on Dec. 5. The dog died at an animal hospital.

Snowmobiler: Dog saved my life ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A 52-year-old Alaska man says his dog saved his life after a snowmobile crash left him injured in the woods.

He was injured, unable to move, in temperatures below freezing. Orth was rescued Monday when the dog attracted snowmobilers. Locals responded, bringing a generator and a hairdryer to keep Orth warm in his wet clothes. Staff and wire reports

Coast Guard rescues a ‘darn good dog’ ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. — The crew of a U.S. Coast Guard cutter that rescued a dog from ice on Lake St. Clair is giving the animal an appropriate name: “Lucky.” Chief Petty Officer Alan Haraf said the 140-foot cutter Bristol Bay was heading Monday to help another vessel stuck in ice when the dog was spotted. Three crew members suited up in weatherresistant gear, he said, and left the ship to help retrieve the dog. The crew, which is handling icebreaking in the Great Lakes region, hoisted the dog aboard and gave it food and care before taking it to an animal shelter. The dog was more than four miles from land off the Detroit suburb of St. Clair Shores. First Class Petty Officer Brian Essler, a food service specialist on the Bristol Bay, said someone on board called the dog “Lucky,” a name that stuck. “Hopefully he’ll find a home,” Essler said. “He’s a darn good dog.” “It was cold, weak and tired,” Haraf told the Detroit Free Press. “It may have been out there for a couple of days or so.” The dog had a harness and collar but no identifying tag. The crew noticed three burrows the dog tried to dig for itself for protection, Haraf said. “They said the paws were bleeding and the nails were pretty much down to nothing.” The Associated Press

The state will increase the benefits provided to family members of firefighters who die in the line of duty under legislation signed into law Wednesday by Gov. Susana Martinez. Under the new law taking effect in July, the surviving spouse or children of a firefighter will receive $250,000 from the state rather $50,000. Surviving parents will receive the payment if there is no spouse or child. About 9,000 volunteer and career firefighters are covered by the death benefit program, according to State Fire Marshal John Standefer. The payments also would go to survivors of

Nightmare in N.C. — a cautionary tale WASHINGTON dystopian nightmare is unfolding in North Carolina. It is what the whole country would look like if you were to marry David Koch to Ted Cruz, with a prenup by ALEC, the outside agitator also known as the American Legislative Exchange Council. ALEC is the group that writes regressive laws, saving right-wingers the trouble of having to do it themselves. Republicans in North Carolina took over both houses of the legislature with the election of Gov. Pat McCrory in 2012, the first time the party has had complete control of state government in more than 100 years. They went straight to work. If the Republicans were to inscribe their philosophy above the statehouse door it would read: “Let us seek to deregulate business and regulate everyone else.” The legislature promptly raised taxes on the bottom 80 percent, eliminated the earned income tax credit for 900,000 people, slashed education spending, declined the Medicaid expansion (leaving 500,000 of its poorest residents without health insurance), and grafted a draconian abortion restriction onto a motorcycle safety law. If you were a worker, a minority, a teacher, a woman, a doctor or poor, the legislature got you. When it wasn’t kicking kids to the curb, lawmakers found time to attack one of the right wing’s most pressing issues, keeping Shariah law from taking over the judiciary. They passed a bill that sought to keep the epidemic of foreign laws taking over U.S. courts from finding its way to North Carolina. McCrory declined to veto it. If you were trying to put guns into the wrong hands, you couldn’t do better than the bill to prohibit police departments from destroying confiscated firearms. Just short of dealing out of the trunk of their squad cars,

Guzmán leaves, money in hand

T police officers are supposed to sell or auction off the weapons they seize, rather than destroy them, as is done elsewhere. This is one of the model laws devised by ALEC and blessed by the National Rifle Association. Another hobby of conservatives is providing a solution to the pressing, yet nonexistent, problem of voter fraud. In 2012, of the almost 7 million ballots cast in North Carolina, 121 were referred to the Board of Elections for fraud, a rate of .00173 percent. A new law invalidates the identification documents Democratic voters are most likely to use: IDs used by college students, public or municipal employees, public assistance agencies, and out-of-state driver’s licenses (unless the voter registers 90 days before the election). If you aren’t a frequent international flier, driver, veteran or American Indian who belongs to a tribe, you are out of luck. You are also facing interminable waits as voting places have become as inconvenient and poorly located as possible. Hillary Clinton gave

a speech decrying the law, as did Gen. Colin Powell, in one of his very rare forays into the political fray. The state estimates that as many as 318,000 voters could now lack appropriate identification. In the meantime, McCrory was doing what he could to remove regulations on business so they could do pretty much what they wanted. It usually takes a while to see what happens when business are allowed to conduct unfettered business, but not in North Carolina. According to The New York Times, the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources was ordered in June to focus on customer service — expediting environmental permits for businesses. The results were quickly apparent. In February, as many as 27 million gallons of water and 82,000 tons of coal ash spewed into the Dan River after a storm drainage pipe ruptured under a containment pond at a shuttered coal plant owned by Duke Energy Corp. Last year, operating under their new business-friendly mandate, state environmental

regulators forged a deal with Duke over pollution from its coal ash ponds, which were known to be leaky and unlined. Critics said the deal was overly favorable to Duke, where McCrory worked for 28 years until he ran for governor in 2008. Federal prosecutors have opened a criminal investigation into the spill that will look at the company’s possible ties to the state regulator. Beleaguered North Carolinians aren’t taking this sitting down. Monthly protests, organized under the aegis of HKonJ (Historic Thousands on Jones Street) and the NAACP have gained momentum to the point where between 80,000 and 100,000 people turned out last month. The protests are called Moral Mondays as a way of showing the Christian right that laws favoring the rich over the poor aren’t a bit Christian. We know what Jesus and Pope Francis would do for the poorest and most vulnerable. Let Republicans in North Carolina do it, too. Margaret Carlson is a Bloomberg View columnist.


Youth should be commended for actions


wanted to acknowledge Cole Bodelson and his friends. I knew Cole as a little boy at La Mariposa Montessori and can imagine his family and teachers are very proud of him. I hope Cole knows that his responsibility is now to continue to lead the young men of our community to do the right thing. Men, do not hurt. Men who cause pain are not only cowards but need to be jailed just like any other domestic abuser. A 1997 study by the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Northeastern University found that 70 percent of animal abusers had committed at least one other crime. Almost 40 percent had committed violent crimes against people ( These statistics impact us all. I hope Cole and his friends and people like Susie Weaver and officers Charles Laramie and Clyde Segura continue to spread humane acts for us all. Anna Soeiro

Suppose you were driving in the relative boonies with some friends and saw a dog curled up in the dirt, unmoving. Then what? Not your dog.

If you had the courage and compassion of 16-year-olds Ryan Lee, Avery Diercks, Will Gibbs, Tristan Gress and Cole Bodelson, you would leave your vehicle, gather up the dog, and get her to care.

a month after I announced my campaign, I was also hit with a degenerative nerve disease. I canvassed on days I when I couldn’t feel my hands, appeared on video holding my arm in place to keep it still and did forums when I could barely see the audience because of acute optic neuritis. Wiping away tears of pain to “get on with the campaign.” It is times like this when you realize strength you don’t know you have — and that part of my journey here makes this campaign a triumph. So for anyone facing adversity and trying to carry on with your life — trust me when I tell you that you can, and will. Mary Bonney

Santa Fe

he strange saga of the Santa Fe Community College and its ousted president, Ana “Cha” Guzmán, is over. Getting rid of her — something the Governing Board of SFCC was intent on doing — will cost a cool half a million dollars. Taxpayers, of course, will never know exactly why she needed to be fired so quickly, but at least the dispute is in the past. (The full settlement, to be made public next week, might provide more answers.) We will note, though, that the board could have chosen to let Guzmán go without trying to fire her for “just” cause. Letting her go without cause would have cost a year’s salary, about $196,000 under her contract. Not only would that have saved money, it would have kept the college out of the headlines. Because of this fight, the trust that Santa Fe has in its beloved community college is somewhat shaken. The college, through years of turmoil in the public schools and at other state universities, has grown and prospered. Citizens have voted repeatedly to fund college construction, most recently in the form of a Higher Education Center now being built near Santa Fe High School and the Santa Fe University of Art and Design. It’s the go-to school for adults needing retraining or who are curious about new activities and for recent graduates who want to stay closer to home to begin advanced studies. A successful community college is essential to Santa Fe’s economic health. Now, though, citizens have several questions to ponder. Was Guzmán correct in pointing out flaws in the college’s operations — including how bonuses were being awarded to some faculty members and what she saw as insufficient growth in the assets of the community college foundation? Did the board try and hush her up? Was the board right in pushing her out recognizing a mistake early? The biggest question, of course, is what went wrong so quickly. Even if Guzmán did need to go — sometimes, a hire is just a bad fit — did the board exercise due diligence over public money? Smart managers understand when it is necessary to settle quickly and move on, something the board refused to do until this week. Guzmán would not back down; but then, her reputation was being battered. Given her actions during her tenure — she was hired to bring change and had the chops to do it, board members probably should have realized she would not go quietly. With interim President Randy Grissom in place — the board hired him for 18 months to bring about stability — the college will continue its mission of educating students with fewer distractions. While we will be glad for the calm ahead, we would like to see the board study its actions. First, review its process for hiring Guzmán. The outreach, the involvement of the community and the search seemed to work well at the time. It’s essential to figure out whether the mismatch could have been prevented; we think the key might be in sending more than one person to do in-person interviews and to check references. The board has about six months to decide how to go about a search, and then a year to find and hire a president, including time for transition. It should also review, with its lawyers, the decision to fire Guzmán rather than pay her and let her go. That decision cost a lot of time and money. This has been a difficult chapter in the history of the community college — but it is the tough times that must make people, as well as institutions stronger. We only wish the lesson had not proved to be so expensive.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: March 6, 1964: Warren Johnson, who owns Universal Outdoor Advertising Co., said this morning that a group was being formed to combat the anti-billboard group who have painted over and torn down billboards in the Santa Fe area in recent years. “Highway advertising is a must for certain types of businesses such as motels and gift stores, and this group being formed is going to see that these signs stay up.” March 6, 1989: Grand Canyon, Ariz. — A light earthquake shook Grand Canyon National Park Saturday rattling glasses in cupboards and sending a shudder through the South Rim but causing no damage or injury. The quake was centered south of the populated areas on the south rim, in an uninhabited area of the park, not within the canyon itself. The tremor was recorded at a magnitude of 4.0 on the Richter scale.

Subject: LITERATURE Provide the book title. (e.g., Fiver, a rabbit who is a seer, receives a frightening vision. Answer: Watership Down.)

Dear Annie: I have been married to a special man for 23 years. The problem is, he has too close of a relationship with his mother. It doesn’t allow the two of us to have any adult space. We didn’t entirely get along under one roof because he would say critical and hurtful things to me. About 10 years ago, I moved down the road into my own space. Since then, we have gotten along better and are much kinder to each other. The problem, however, is my mother-in-law. She insists on calling my husband and talking for several hours every Sunday. I used to talk to her, too, but grew bored with it because I had nothing to say after 20 minutes. He loves small talk. I wanted time for the two of us to have an occasional weekend alone, but he always had this obligatory hours-long phone call. I decided to tolerate this and took a Sunday job so I’d keep busy. But gradually, the calls encroached on the rest of our week. Every time we took a trip together, she’d call multiple times while he was driving to be certain he hadn’t crashed. She somehow manages to call every time we are intimate. And of course, the real problem is that my husband answers these calls. Annie, I’ve tried everything. I asked him to phone her before my visits so we could have some time alone. I’ve asked him to let her know we need time to ourselves. But I’m worn out. I’ve stopped asking. I rarely visit him these days. My father-in-law was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer. Am I being small-minded now that she has real worries and fears? — Phoenix Dear Phoenix: The fact that your mother-in-law is going through some difficult times means you should be kind and considerate, even helpful when possible, but not a doormat. If

you could periodically phone or visit her to see how she’s doing, or offer to bring groceries or stay with her husband so she can have a break, those would be kind gestures. But your husband has chosen not to limit his mother’s phone calls even though it interferes with his relationship with you. That is unlikely to change, especially now. Dear Annie: I do not have a dishwasher. I wash all of my dishes and silverware by hand. I place my silverware in the dish drain rack with the handles down and the eating end up. I think it makes sense that the water drains away from the eating end, making it more sanitary. And the bottom of the drain can accumulate all kinds of detritus. Why would I want my fork tines in that? My friend disagrees and says it should be the other way around so that you don’t catch your hand on a knife while emptying the dish rack. What do you say? — Em from Indy Dear Em: We’re with you when it comes to forks, spoons and butter knives, but sharp knives should be placed facing down in order to avoid injury. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Less Generous.” I, too, consider myself thoughtful and generous. For years I sent cards, gifts, photos, etc., for every occasion. My efforts seemed to go unappreciated, so I stopped. I now focus on the people who do respond to my efforts, and I cultivate those relationships. I am teaching my 7-year-old daughter to write thank-you notes. She says, “Do I have to?” I say, “Yes. If someone made the effort to think of you, then you need to acknowledge their effort.” I hope it sticks. — Still Generous

seniors get fitting farewell Creighton forward Doug McDermott, right, drives past Georgetown forward Nate Lubick during the second half of Tuesday’s game in Washington. Georgetown defeated Creighton 75-63.

By Edmundo Carrillo The New Mexican

Head coach Craig Neal said he told the team that Perez would get the start during film session on Tuesday night. He warned the players that if word leaked on social media, he’d start Deshawn Delaney instead. “It’s probably the loudest applause I’ve gotten from those guys all year,” Neal said. The rest of the team was all smiles, too, because Wednesday’s cakewalk win sets up a monumental showdown at 10th-ranked San Diego State in Viejas Arena on Saturday night. The Lobos (24-5, 15-2) can lay claim to a fifth Mountain West title in six years with a win

ESPAÑOLA — Ryan Cordova knows how to turn a program around. It turns out that he is prophetic, too. In trying to recruit Española Valley guard Rodney Coles, the Northern New Mexico College men’s basketball head coach told the Sundevil that his Eagles were going to make the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Division II Men’s Basketball National Championship tournament by the time he was a junior in college. Coles is now a junior, and the Eagles got a berth in the tournament after knocking off Ashford (Iowa) University in the Association of Independent Institutions Conference championship on March 2. On Wednesday, the Eagles learned they were going to face defending champion and No. 1 seed Cardinal Stritch (Wis.) in the opening round in Point Lookout, Mo., on March 12. This is the first time in school history that the team made the tournament, and Coles was a big part of Cordova’s plan to build toward a berth. Coles led the Sundevils to a state championship in 2011 and was the Class AAAA Player of the Year. Cordova knew he needed him to stay in Española if he was going to have a shot at turning the program into a national fixture. “He was the one player that we went after very, very hard,” Cordova said. For Coles, the decision to stay home was an easy one. “I just felt like this was a good opportunity. I felt like this was where I should be,” Coles said. “I wanted to keep bringing a winning attitude to Española. I could be sitting on the bench somewhere else. Instead, I’m getting playing time here and I’m part of a winning program.” But the program wasn’t always a winning one. The team went 0-30 in Coles’ freshman year, but the team was full of other freshman, many of which are also from New Mexico. Now those freshman are all veterans who helped the Eagles to a 17-15 season. Not only is the roster full of veterans, but it has 15 players from New Mexico. Cordova did that on purpose, because he knew that if he wanted to fill the seats in Española, the crowd had to see familiar faces. “We try to have it as locally grown as we possibly can, like our chile,” Cordova said. “If you’re going to build a program in a community like Española, people want to go watch who they know. It’s important that they know our players and know our

McDermott shows he’s the beast of Big East By Eric Olson

The Associated Press

OMAHA, Neb. — It’s been a season of no regrets for Creighton’s Doug McDermott. He’s answered naysayers who predicted he wouldn’t be tough enough for the Big East. The fact is, he’s never been better. The two-time first-team AllAmerican has added to his offensive repertoire and is the nation’s leading scorer. He is considered the frontrunner for the Wooden Award as college basketball’s best player and has become one of the top 10 scorers in history while keeping the 13th-ranked Bluejays (23-6, 13-4) in the Big East race and on track for their highest NCAA Tournament seed. McDermott said he’s never secondguessed his decision to hold off on the NBA so he could play his senior season for his father-coach, Greg McDermott. “When college is over, I’ll defi-

Pistorius’ character questioned By Christopher Torchia and Gerald Imray The Associated Press

PRETORIA, South Africa — A month before he fatally shot his girlfriend, Oscar Pistorius cajoled a friend into taking the blame when a gun was accidentally fired under the Johannesburg restaurant table where he and other friends were sitting, according to testimony Wednesday in the double-amputee runner’s murder Oscar trial. Pistorius “ ‘Just say it was you. I don’t want any tension around me,’ ” witness Kevin Lerena remembered Pistorius telling a friend. “ ‘There’s too much media hype around me.’ ” The testimony by Lerena, a boxer, raises questions about the character of a man who insists he accidentally killed Reeva Steenkamp in his home in the early hours of Feb. 14 last year. Prosecutors allege he intentionally shot 29-year-old Steenkamp, a model and television personality, after a loud argument. Lerena was the first witness in the globally watched trial, which started Monday, to allow himself to be broadcast on television under a judge’s order allowing cameras into the courtroom but preserving the right of some witnesses not to be shown. The boxer wore a suit and leaned forward with an intent

Lobos blast Air Force, honor three upperclassmen By Will Webber

The New Mexican

ALBUQUERQUE t took Chris Perez nearly four years to get his first career start with the Lobos. It took him 53 seconds to head back to the bench and another few moments after that to slide nearly all the way down to the final seat, right where he usually is. Still, it was hard to find anyone in The Pit with a bigger smile on his face than the walk-on senior. Well after the 21st-ranked University of New Mexico finished off an 80-52 Mountain West Conference blowout of Air Force, he was still basking in the glow of his rare shot at play-

ing time. For him, it was clearly the highlight of UNM’s senior night in which the team’s three upperclassmen were honored after the game. A 6-foot guard out of Corona, Calif., Perez eventually checked back in for the final 4 minutes, 34 seconds as the sellout crowd roared. He brought them all to their feet when he hit a ball-fake layup to close out the scoring with 42.3 seconds remaining. It constituted his only points of the season.

He went into Tuesday’s game at Georgetown having scored 25 or more points in eight straight games.

Doug McDermott will play his final home game Sunday against Providence, and then it will be off to New York for the Big East tournament. He has passed Danny Manning for No. 9 on the all-time scoring list and is four points behind Oscar Robertson. McDermott brushes off discussion about where he’ll finish. He said it’s all about where the team finishes. The Bluejays have never been higher than a No. 6 NCAA seed or advanced past the round of 32.


Lobos: Final home game for three seniors Continued from Page B-1 this weekend. On Wednesday, however, it was all about the seniors. The trio had most of the 15,411 fans stick around for an hour after the final buzzer to hear head coach Craig Neal share his thoughts about each of them, then having all three address the fans one final time. Perhaps the best moment came last when Williams assured a win against San Diego State and a sweep of the MWC Tournament next week, then said the team’s motto of “Unfinished Business” will finally be realized when the NCAA Tournament commences later this month. “People want to talk about unfinished business; that’s real to us,” he said. “That’s real to this senior class, it’s real to [the fans].” The Lobos never trailed against Air Force, opening a 14-point lead in the first half and 32-point margin in the second half. The Falcons (11-17, 5-12) made just 7 of 27 tries from 3-point range and turned the ball over 17 times. They were never really in it and head coach Dave Pilipovich knew it before the opening tip. “In this environment on senior night I knew it was going to be a buzz saw,” he said. Senior Cameron Bairstow was his usual self both on and off the floor. He finished with a game-high 21 points to go with seven rebounds, further solidifying his role as frontrunner for the MWC’s player of the year award. He capped his remarkable senior season in The Pit by draining a 3-pointer from the top of the key with 5:38 remaining. It was just his second career 3 and, ironically, came

from almost the exact same spot as when then-senior Drew Gordon hit a 3-pointer on his final shot in The Pit. “Let’s just hope [7-foot freshman center Obij Aget] thinks he can do that when he’s a senior,” Neal joked. When it was over, Bairstow was his usual soft-spoken self when addressing the fans and media. He refused to say anything self-serving or anything even close to resembling the kind of bulletin board material Williams supplied. While Bairstow was gracious in thanking his teammates and the fans, Wil-

liams ended his long senior night address by autographing each of his shoes and tossing them deep into the stands. “It took me a while to really appreciate the history of this program,” he said. “I think that’s where I matured the most.” Four Lobos finished in double figures as Williams had 13 points, and Cleveland Thomas and Alex Kirk each had 10.

Brito was recruited by Cordova in high school, but he decided to go to New Mexico Highlands instead, where he spent three years. After things didn’t work out with the Cowboys, Brito decided it was time to return home for his junior year. “I didn’t think I got a fair opportunity out there, so I contacted coach Cordova and asked him if there was room on the team for me,” Brito said. Now Brito and Coles are members of an Eagles team that is virtually unknown in New Mexico, much less the country, and that gives them an advantage when they play a Cardinal Stritch team that is the defending champion. “We’re already underestimated,” Coles said. “This is the first time we’ve been on this stage, so I think we’re going to surprise a lot of people. The wins don’t matter and the stats don’t matter, so it just depends on who shows up to the game. If they don’t show up to the game, it’s going to be an upset, because we’re going to show up.” The Eagles aren’t just happy to make the tournament.

which came from donations Wednesday — NNMC is looking to make a run. “There’s always a Cinderella story, and I think we might just be it,” Cordova said. “My guys are very, very hungry. They love challenges and they love big games.

They’re able to make big plays when it really counts. I think we have just as good a shot as anybody else.” The odds are stacked against them, but one of Cordova’s predictions has already come true.

Pistorius: Runner described as a ‘legend’ expression as he answered lawyers’ questions. His testimony about the restaurant shooting was a reminder of how 27-year-old Pistorius, who ran for South Africa in the 2012 Olympics, once commanded respect among his peers. The boxer described Pistorius as “an icon and a legend in sport” and said he sought advice from the runner about diet and running. The episode occurred during a busy lunchtime at Tashas restaurant in the swank Melrose Arch area of Johannesburg in January 2013, and relates to three firearms-related charges against Pistorius, in addition to the murder charge. Pistorius pleaded not guilty to all four charges. One friend, Darren Fresco, passed his gun to Pistorius under the table and told him that there was a bullet in the chamber, Lerena said. Then a

shot went off, puncturing the floor near Lerena’s foot, he said. “There was just complete silence,” said Lerena, who described being in shock and having blood where his toe was grazed in the incident. Then, he said, Pistorius apologized, saying: “Are you OK? Is everybody OK?” Before the restaurant management approached the table, Lerena said, Pistorius asked Fresco to say he was responsible for the gunshot. Lerena said they paid the bill and left the restaurant and he never spoke about the incident. Two days after Pistorius shot Steenkamp, he said, he woke up to find over 100 missed calls on his telephone as media from around the world tried to contact him to ask about the gun incident. Chief defense lawyer Barry Roux attempted to establish it was noisy in the restaurant, which the manager testified

was full with more than 200 customers, and that Pistorius did not hear Fresco say the gun was “one-up” — or that there was a bullet in the chamber — when he passed it. But Lerena’s testimony that Pistorius asked a friend to “take the rap” wasn’t challenged. “He did say, ‘Fresco, take the blame because this could be big,’ ” Lerena said in court. The wife of the restaurant manager also said in her brief testimony that the shot went off near to where a child was sitting. Earlier Wednesday, Roux sought to undermine the prosecution testimony of a couple who say they heard a woman’s screams and gunfire the night that Pistorius killed Steenkamp. Telephone records will show that the banging sounds the neighbors heard were not gunshots but a distressed Pistorius breaking down the toilet door with a cricket bat after realizing

he had shot Steenkamp when she was in the toilet, thinking it was an intruder, Roux asserted. Throwing doubt on the witnesses’ recollection of the sequence in the early hours is crucial for Pistorius’ defense after the state maintained there was a loud argument on the night he shot Steenkamp through a door in his bathroom and the screams and shouts were before a gun was fired. The runner’s defense team wants to show the screams were Pistorius calling for help after the accidental killing and before he used the bat on the door. Pistorius was born without fibula bones because of a congenital defect and his legs were amputated when he was 11 months old. He ran on carbon-fiber blades and is a multiple Paralympic medalist. He also competed at the London Olympics but didn’t win a medal.

NCAA, five conferences sued over athletic scholarship value cap Former West Virginia football player Shawne Alston sued the NCAA and five major conferences Wednesday, saying they violated antitrust laws by agreeing to cap the value of an athletic scholarship at less than the actual cost of attending school. Attorneys Steve Berman and Bruce Simon, who have been involved in cases challenging the NCAA’s ability to sell college athletes’ likeness to video-game makers, filed the proposed class-action lawsuit in federal court in San Francisco. Alston, a running back for West Virginia from 2009-12, is the only named plaintiff. The lawsuit also seeks to represent all scholarship football players who have played since February 2010 in the Atlantic Coast Conference, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and Southeastern Conference. “We just received a copy of the complaint and are evaluating it as it relates to similar cases filed by the very same plaintiffs’ counsel,” NCAA chief legal officer Donald Remy said in a statement. The lawsuits said players essentially work full-time football jobs while they go to school. “The NCAA and Power Conference Defendants have studied and acknowledged that a so-called ‘full ride’ scholarship does not cover the full cost of attending school,” the lawsuit said. “Athletes are often a few thousand dollars short for the typical expenses of a student. These costs include money for gas, food, and other necessities. While players scrimp, coaches and universities most certainly do not. The average salary for major college football coaches is over $2 million, with some coaches earning over $7 million.” The Associated Press

Jefferson leads Bobcats past Pacers scored 26 points off the bench and Joakim Noah had a triple-double as Chicago beat Detroit. Noah finished with 10 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists for his sixth career triple-double, including two in the last three games and three in the last month. Taj Gibson added 22 points off the bench, while Jimmy Butler had 18 points and 12 rebounds in Chicago’s fifth win in six games.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Al Jefferson scored 34 points in Charlotte’s 109-87 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night that gave the BobBobcats 109 cats their fifth straight home win. Pacers 87 Jefferson was 16 of 25 from the field and had eight rebounds for the Bobcats (28-33), who equaled their combined win total from the previous two seasons. Jefferson, whose 38-point, 19-rebound effort Monday night was overshadowed by LeBron James’ career-high 61-point outing, has scored at least 20 points in 21 of his last 24 games. ROCKETS 101, MAGIC 89 In Orlando, Fla., James Harden scored 31 points, including 25 in the second half, and Houston dug out of a double-digit, firsthalf hole to beat the Magic. The Rockets dominated inside, outscoring the Magic 58-26 in the paint. Dwight Howard added 19 points and 14 rebounds in his second trip to Orlando to face his former team. WARRIORS 108, CELTICS 88 In Boston, Klay Thompson and David Lee scored 18 points each, and Golden State went a season-high 14 games over .500 with a romp over Boston. The Warriors scored the first six points, led 12-2 with just over five minutes gone and stayed ahead by at least 20 points throughout the second half. WIZARDS 104, JAZZ 91 In Washington, Trevor Ariza scored 26 points, Bradley Beal added 22, and the Wizards took an early lead and never lost it, shooting 54 percent in a win over Utah. John Wall had 14 points and 10 assists, and Marcin Gortat had 16 points and nine rebounds for the Wizards, who have won seven of eight. This one was noteworthy if only for substantial contributions from recent additions Drew Gooden and Andre Miller, two thirtysomethings who teamed up for a run that padded the lead in the first half.

NETS 103, GRIZZLIES 94 In New York, Joe Johnson scored 21 points, Marcus Thornton came off the bench for 20, and Brooklyn powered their way above .500 for the first time this season by beating Memphis. Deron Williams added 16 points and Paul Pierce 14 for the Nets (30-29), who have won four in a row overall and six straight at home in turning around a turbulent start. Jason Collins played 17 scoreless minutes on the day he signed his second 10-day contract. The matchup between two of the NBA’s best teams in 2014 was a mismatch until the fourth quarter, when the Nets had already led by 30. Memphis fell to 21-9 since Jan. 1, while the Nets’ 20-8 record is tops among East teams. BULLS 105, PISTONS 94 In Auburn Hills, Mich., D.J. Augustin

Tyson Chandler had 15 points and 14 rebounds and Amare Stoudemire added 18 points and eight boards for the Knicks, who had not won since beating New Orleans on Feb. 19. Kevin Love had 19 points and eight rebounds, but scored just one point in the second half as the Timberwolves returned from a successful West Coast road trip with a thud. Kevin Martin had 12 points on 3-for10 shooting and the Wolves were 7 for 26 from 3-point range. KINGS 116, BUCKS 106 In Milwaukee, Isaiah Thomas scored 25 points and had six assists to lead Sacramento past the Bucks. Rudy Gay added 22 points, eight rebounds and five assists, and DeMarcus Cousins had 21 points, 10 rebounds and five assists for the Kings, who won their ninth road game after finishing with an 8-33 record away from home last season. Sacramento opened its season-high seven-game, 12-day road trip by shooting 52 percent (43-for-82) from the field. NUGGETS 115, MAVERICKS 110 In Denver, Wilson Chandler scored 21 points, Ty Lawson had 20, and the Nuggets snapped a six-game losing streak by beating Dallas. Kenneth Faried, Randy Foye and J.J.

Hickson scored 12 of his points in the fourth quarter to help hold off the Mavericks, who play the Nuggets a final time this season in two weeks in Dallas.


Spotlight back on Sochi amid Crimea crisis By Rob Harris

The Associated Press

Overshadowed by the international crisis over Ukraine, Russia welcomes the sporting world back to Sochi this week for Winter Paralympics that will be snubbed by some politicians and will struggle to match the successful Winter Olympics that ended less than two weeks ago in the Black Sea resort. The Olympic flame had only just been extinguished when Russian military action began in Crimea, the Ukrainian region some 300 miles northwest of Sochi. While the Olympics were acclaimed for overcoming logistical and security challenges, Russia’s global reputation has suffered as a result of the operations in Ukraine. President Vladimir Putin’s pet project, the costliest ever Olympics, has veered significantly from his script ahead of Friday’s opening of the Paralympics, a 10-day event featuring hundreds of disabled athletes. “It would be the height of cynicism to put the Paralympics at risk,” Putin told reporters on Tuesday. “We all know that this is an international sports event at which people with disabilities can show their capabilities, prove to themselves and the entire world that they are not people with limitations, but on the contrary, people with unlimited possibilities, and demonstrate their achievements in sport.” The leader who tried to soften his image through sport — mingling with Americans

at their Sochi headquarters, beaming with spectators and posing for selfies — is set to return to Sochi for the Paralympics while being condemned in Washington and European capitals for Russia’s intervention in the Crimea, a peninsula in the Black Sea where Russian speakers are in the majority. If the Sochi infrastructure has showcased the modern, emboldened Russia’s ability to stage large-scale events, by transforming a decaying resort at the cost of $51 billion, the military intervention in neighboring Crimea has projected the nation’s geopolitical power again. The challenge for Paralympic organizers is to prevent the tension along the Black Sea coast in Crimea from casting a shadow over the games. The Russian Paralympics Committee accepts that the crisis has cre-

ated a “negative impact on the international situation” which could spill over into the ceremonies and sporting events. “I call on all those responsible for successful organization of the games, which is a tremendous holiday and a source of inspiration for all the people with restricted abilities, to make maximum effort so as the existing conflicts should not give a bitter touch or disappoint the world,” Russian Paralympic chief Vladimir Lukin said in a statement to Itar-Tass news agency. “This applies both to participants and guests of the Paralympics.” Empty VIP seats at the opening ceremony on Friday will be a testament to the ill-feeling toward Russia’s actions in Ukraine. The United States and Britain, pressuring Putin to back down in Crimea, were among the first countries to order politicians not to travel to Sochi. “If there are people ready to try to disrupt this event [the Paralympics], it would show that these are people for whom there really is nothing sacred,” Putin said. The International Paralympic Committee has appealed for Russia to recognize the U.N.’s Olympic Truce, which asks warring parties to cease hostilities during the Olympics and Paralympics. Across five sports — alpine skiing, crosscountry skiing, biathlon, sledge hockey and wheelchair curling — 575 athletes from 45 countries will be competing. TV stations in more than 55 countries are due to broadcast the games, the IPC said.

Other coaches were infuriated by the proposal. Auburn’s Gus Malzahn, Arizona’s Rich Rodriguez and Texas Tech’s Kliff Kingsbury were among the many critics who said there was no proof that up-tempo offenses increased the risk of injuries. Rodriguez and Arizona went to so far as to make a YouTube video spoof of the movie “Speed” to get his point across. “I don’t know where it goes from here, but I appreciate the rules committee realizing it was a mistake to put it out there right now,” Rodriguez said Wednesday in a telephone interview. Had the rule been approved it would have gone into effect next season. The penalty for snapping the ball too fast would have been 5 yards. Bielema and Saban were not on the rules committee but had a chance to address it last month and push for changes to control the ever-quickening pace of play. Alabama ranked 116th in the nation in plays per game last year at 65.9 per game.

Arkansas was 121st at 64.7. The proposal was passed Feb. 12. What followed was three weeks of heated debate among college football fans and coaches about the evolution of football. A debate that is not even close to over. “I’m just one that doesn’t think the officials should not control the pace of the game,” Saban told reporters before it was announced the 10-second rule had been withdrawn. “That’s what I think, because that’s a player safety issue, too. To me, football was not intended to be a continuous game. Soccer is. Rugby is. Football was never intended to be that. It’s been played for a long time and there’s always been a little bit of time between plays because of the physical nature, the contact that’s involved.” The proposal caught many coaches by surprise because this is a non-change year for NCAA rules. Exceptions could be made for rules related to player safety, however.

Shooting at the Star Hundreds of young archers to test their range at state tournament

The New Mexican


rch Madness” is here. Thousands of shots will fly through the air in the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho on Saturday, and not one of them will involve a ball or a hoop. While “March Madness” grips the state for the state boys and girls basketball tournaments beginning this weekend, “Arch Madness” will take center stage at the arena as hundreds of archers from across the state will string their bows and let arrows fly to see who is the best in New Mexico. The third annual National Archery in the Schools Programs (NASP) State Tournament makes its first appearance in a large venue site, and more than 600 competitors from elementary, middle and high schools will test their skills in one of the oldest practices in the world. The tournament is a product of the work of Brian Guzman, the NASP program coordinator for the state’s Department of Game and Fish. NASP started in Kentucky in 2001 as a way to promote the activity to children as well as instill skill sets that it believes participants can use in the classroom. What started as a state initiative to enroll 24,000 students in archery, according to the organization’s website, has grown into a national program that involves more than 2 million students. Guzman implemented the program in New Mexico in 2008 and has slowly built a strong archery network across the state. Guzman said he started by making phone calls to school administrators across the state, traveling to schools to present the program and offering training to help promote safety and the virtues of archery both inside and out of the classroom — specifically discipline, focus and a competitive spirit. “What it is that we are selling is self-confidence, not the equipment or the program,” Guzman said. “When kids feel better about themselves, they don’t feel so intimidated and start asking questions in the classroom.

Each archer at Saturday’s event gets three flights of five shots at each distance, with higher points scored the closer the arrow is to the center of the target

They start to retain more information, and they begin to do better in school and in society in general.” However, one of the obstacles Guzman faced with administrators was the issue of safety. He touted the training programs he used at presentations in tempering those concerns. “When I showed them how it works and how the program runs, they were open to it,” Guzman said. “They would see the whistle commands [that archers must obey], the safety aspects of the program and how rigid the safety protocols are. It may take an extra hour or two out of my time, but I will do it.” Guzman said implementing the program in a school costs $3,000, but half of that is covered by the Department of Game and Fish. NASP also has grants schools can apply for that will cover another $700. Included in the cost are bow trees that hold the targets, arrows, a repair kit and the training program. Santa Fe High started its NASP program in January and will bring 17 archers to the tournament. Head coach John Seymour, an English teacher at the school, feels that archery promotes another important value — self-reliance. “I try to manifest my philosophy into everything I do with archery,” Seymour said.

“I focus on one’s bow preparation, that one’s tools are sharp, straight, safe and cared for. Self-reliance is very important because students get frustrated when they don’t feel like they can take care of themselves. Any time I can help them with that, I will, and archery is a good place for that.” Seymour says the training also helps the students overcome some of their own misconceptions about archery. “They’ve seen movies about how dangerous archery can be, especially on the receiving end of an arrow,” Seymour said. “They rarely know how safe it can be from the bow side. They learn safety and eventually they learn they are very capable of executing wellplaced shots over and over.” Guzman started the state tournament in 2012 at the National Guard Armory in Albuquerque, and it moved last year to the state fairgrounds, where the number of archers grew to about 500. This year, Guzman expects about 700 archers in the Star Center who will be shooting at targets from 10 and 15 meters. Each archer gets three flights of five shots at each distance, with higher points scored the closer the arrow is to the center of the target. The first round will feature 45 stations with two archers at each station, with competitors eliminated each round. Awards will be presented to the top three individuals in each division — elementary school (fourth and fifth grades), middle school (grades 6-8) and high school — as well as the top three teams. Those top finishers also move on to the National Archery in Schools Tournament in Louisville, Ky., on May 9-10. Guzman wants to bring a bit of basketball pizazz to the state tournament. “We’ll have the spotlight for those first-, second- and third-place individuals and teams in their respective divisions,” Guzman said. “It will be a little like the show they have for the NBA Finals.” That just goes to show that even in archery, basketball is still a relevant comparison in New Mexico.

o and behold, a blessing from Mother Nature has renewed our hopes for a wet late winter and the conditions on our ski slopes for the upcoming spring break. With March typically our second-best month for snowfall, this bodes well. Leading the pack in terms of recent snowfall is Wolf Creek, which received 38 inches, including 20 in one 24-hour period. It sits on a fat base of 109 inches — the most in Colorado. It will host a “Fun Race” on Saturday, free and open to skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities. Its entire Nordic track was freshly groomed last Sunday. Traditional cross-country skis and skate skis are available in the area’s rental shop. Ski Santa Fe picked up 16 inches over the weekend, then a surprise 7 inches on Tuesday night, bumping its base to 38 inches and its year-to-date total over the century mark at 109 inches. The fourth day of live music comes to Totemoff’s, the midmountain lounge, Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. The area is also hosting a contest, tagged “Ski Bueno,” for still and video photogDaniel raphers from now through March Gibson 28. Each week, contestants are Snow Trax urged to post a single still image or video on Instagram. The best will be highlighted on the ski area’s Facebook page, and one will be randomly selected as the season winner March 29. The winning photographer will receive a 2014-15 gold pass at Ski Santa Fe, and the winner of a second random draw will get a two-night stay at the Inn and Spa at Loretto and a 2014-15 Ski Santa Fe weekend pass. Taos Ski Valley saw 27 inches pile up and now has a season-best base of 60 inches. On Saturday, the resort celebrates the birthday of its founder, Ernie Blake, with a fireworks display and torchlight parade down Snakedance. The event kicks off at 7 p.m., with the fireworks display to follow immediately. Taos also is now selling passes for the 2014-15 season. Most types of passes will be available for a discounted price until April 6. They can be picked up beginning March 17 and used for the remainder of the current season. In the case of the Millennium pass ($575), the days used do not count toward the 70 days allotted for next season. With the pending change in ownership at Taos has come news that it hopes to embark on the first phase in its base redevelopment following the 2014-15 season. The plans, which still need approvals, call for 128,000 square feet of parking, retail and residential facilities on six stories, a streamside path along Lake Fork Creek and other improvements. See details at news/taos-ski-valley-panel-reviews-base-upgrades/ article_05033fa9-5f87-50bf-b258-aed4d8c40ce4.html Angel Fire gained 5 inches and has a 30-inch base, with 83 percent of its terrain open. It launches its spring celebration on Sunday, which includes live music, themed days, games and prizes. Sunday evening kicks off the fun with live music by Ben Marshal from 5 to 8 p.m. at Village Haus. Telluride picked up 27 inches and has a settled 72-inch base, with more snow on the horizon. Performing on Friday at Club Red in the Telluride Conference Center is the Portland, Ore., indie rock band Blitzen Trapper, kicking off its 2014 spring tour. Silverton Mountain reports 30 new inches and a 108-inch base. Optional unguided skiing and boarding returns here April 4-6 and April 11-13. On April 6, the nonresort will be celebrating the 13th annual Brewski at Silverton event. Compete in the annual mustache competition and enjoy an afternoon of beer tasting with some of Colorado’s finest microbreweries, including Wanderlust, Steamworks, Avalanche, Three Rivers, Carvers, Ska and Durango Brewery. On April 4-6, join its annual “Sisters in the Mountains” gathering for expert-only skiing, networking, inspiration and education. Lodging and skiing packages are available.

On ruby-crowned kinglets sightings and other questions By Anne Schmauss

For The New Mexican


everal questions have been common at the store lately, so I thought I’d share them today. Question: What’s that tiny active bird I’ve seen at my suet lately? Answer: You are probably seeing the rubycrowned kinglet. These tiny birds, about 4 inches long, winter in our area and have been commonly seen at suet feeders and seed cylinders in the past couple of months. They normally eat insects, sap, larvae and fruit, but those foods can be sparse this time of year, so kinglets will happily go after fatty suet and quality seed cylinders loaded with easy-to-eat sunflower hearts and peanuts. You won’t see them at a regular seed blend because their micro beaks can’t bust open shells but can chip away at foods without shells like suet, peanut pieces and sunflower hearts. Ruby-crowned kinglets are grayish/green in color, they sport two white wing bars and a bold white eye ring. The male has a red patch on his

crown, but it is often concealed. Sometimes he exposes the bright red when courting or when agitated. Kinglets flit from one place to the other and almost never sit still. They often flick their wings up and down. So watch for a very small very active bird jumping around your trees and shrubs and at your suet feeder. Question: My birds are eating less seed lately. What’s going on? Answer: When it’s cold outside, birds need more calories, just like we would if we lived outdoors. It’s not been very cold in the past couple of months, so birds have been eating less. Their natural food sources have not been routinely covered with snow, so birds can freely snack at leftover seed heads and berries. One thing to keep in mind, however, is that those natural food sources have been depleted over the winter and offer less and less of a food option for your birds. Also, nights are still cold, and what with occasional snows and cold snaps, it’s best to keep high-fat food available to your birds so it’s there when they need it. Use a seed blend with mostly blackoil sunflower. Some white millet is good because

it gets tossed to the ground where ground feeding birds like juncos and towhees love to eat. Sunflower is the key to any good mix, and ingredients like sunflower chips and peanut pieces are always welcome. Beware of milo and other fillers like

“grain products” listed on your birdseed label. Birds don’t eat them, so they serve no purpose except to keep the cost of a bag of birdseed down. Question: A flock of small, streaked birds showed up at my thistle feeder last week. What are they? Answer: Sounds like pine siskins. These thistle eaters are an irruptive species, meaning they are disloyal nomads that float around from food source to food source with no regular pattern of migration. Usually in the Santa Fe area, we see more pine siskins in the winter, but not so this year. Some of you have reported siskins, but many of you have been missing them most of the winter. True to form, don’t be surprised if a flock of siskins floats by and cleans out your thistle feeder any day. Keep thistle fresh so if they do show up, they’ll like what they find. Anne Schmauss is the co-owner of Wild Birds Unlimited in Santa Fe and she loves to hear your bird stories. Look for Anne’s new book, Birdhouses of the World, out nationwide later this month.

Southwest LAKE ROBERTS: A construction project to improve the dam has begun and extremely low lake levels make it increasingly difficult to fish. The project is expected to continue into late summer. The lake is still open to bank fishing but difficult to access.

Southeast BONITO LAKE: Closed. BRANTLEY LAKE: Anglers are to practice catch-and-release for all fish here as high levels of DDT were found in several fish.

Details at events. Crested Butte received 25 inches and has a seasonbest 84-inch base. Beginning Friday, Crested Butte will host the IFSA National Junior Freeskiing Competitions, with 75 to 100 competitors expected. From 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday, the town of Crested Butte will stage the annual Big Air on Elk event, transforming its main street into a huck fest with a huge kicker to launch skiers and riders pulled to speed by snowmobiles, along with live music and parties at nightspots.

Monarch Mountain bumped up to a 92-inch base, and 285 inches total this season, so you know in shaded areas and trees, it’s deep! On March 22, free demo Tomichi and No Name skis, handmade in Salida, Colo. Sipapu also picked up substantial snow and has a 35-inch base. Saturday and Sunday are Hawaiian Days. Beach attire is encouraged, with free leis for everyone. The 11th annual Cardboard Derby on March 15 also looks fun.

There are thousands of dollars in prizes, and the best loot goes to the most creative derbies. Online registration is available at www. Ski Apache has received some snow as well, reporting a 23-inch base. Runs from the top, via the new gondola and chairs 1-5, are open, including runs in Apache Bowl. Pajarito Mountain has a 17-inch base, having received only 39 inches total so far — an ominous sign for the already heavily burned range.

4 Wheel Alignment check and Multi-Point Inspection. 505-473-2886 • 2721 Cerrillos Rd. • Santa Fe


Dear Tom and Ray: I tow a 6, 500-pound travel trailer with a 2009 GMC Sierra. The truck has a 5.6-liter engine with a trailertowing package. My friends tell me not to tow with the cruise control on. 4X4s

Disclaimer: Up to 5 quarts standard oil and standard oil filter included. Diesel or Synthetic has an extra charge. Only one coupon per household. Coupon expires 03/10/2014 @ 5 PM. Coupon is for one $8.88 Standard oil change service and may not be redeemed for cash.

I can f ind nothing in the owner ’s manual pertaining to this. Is it safe to tow with the cruise control on? -- Russell RAY: I don’t see why not. All the cruise control does is keep your speed steady. And if the vehicle is otherwise capable of towing the load, it shouldn’t have an adverse effect on anything. TOM: The only exception would be if you’re towing in a hilly area. In that case, in order to keep the truck at a precise, constant speed, the cruise control may force the automatic transmission to

“hunt” for the right gear, and might go back and forth between gears quite frequently. RAY: That’s something that happens anyway in hilly driving, even without cruise control. It’s not particularly harmful; it’s just annoying. TOM: If you were driving without cruise control in those hills, you might have a little more influence over the hunting. You might back off the gas pedal in certain situations, or downshift the transmission temporarily to stop the hunting. RAY: But you can



downshift with the cruise control on, too, if you notice hunting and it bothers you. TOM: Just make sure you follow all the other towing recommendations the manufacturer makes, which probably include turning the overdrive off when towing, and strapping on two pairs of Depends before you head out with 6, 500 pounds kissing your rear bumper. RAY: But I’d say there’s no real problem with using cruise control while towing, especially for normal highway driving, Russell.
