Pojoaque lawsuit vs. state dismissed


Five gubernatorial hopefuls look to land top spot on primary ballot

Interior Department to decide on casino deal

A crowded field of Democratic candidates for governor will test their support among party activists at an event to determine who lands the top spot on the ballot in the June 3 primary race. The pre-primary nominating convention Saturday can serve as an early proving ground for candidates. However, critics say it diverts time and money from the goal of winning the primary and defeating Republican Gov. Susana Martinez in the November general election. Five Democrats are seeking the gubernatorial nomination: Attorney General Gary King, state Sens. Linda Lopez and Howie Morales, Santa Fe businessman and political newcomer Alan Webber, and Lawrence Rael, a longtime state, local and federal government manager. There also are contested primary races for other offices, including state treasurer. To earn an automatic spot on the primary election ballot, candidates need the backing of at least 20 percent of the more than 1,500 convention delegates who could attend the event at Laguna Pueblo near Albuquerque. Candidates will appear on the ballot based on the strength of their performance, with the top finisher listed first. However, any candidate who misses the 20 percent threshold can still get on the ballot by submitting extra signatures on nominating petitions to the secretary of state. The convention outcome doesn’t necessarily indicate what will happen in the primary. But nobody has won a party’s nomination after failing to get 20 percent of the convention vote. Former two-term Gov. Gary Johnson had a difficult time at the 1994

A federal judge has dismissed Pojoaque Pueblo’s lawsuit against the state of New Mexico over failed attempts to reach agreement on a new gambling compact amid disputes over alcohol sales and the percentage of casino revenues the tribe must pay the state. The ruling clears the way for the tribe to go directly to the U.S. Department of the Interior to seek a decision on the terms of a new gambling deal. The pueblo needs a new compact to continue operating its two casinos north of Santa Fe after the current agreement expires in June 2015. The pueblo sued the state in December, contending Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration had proposed collecting an illegal tax — a percentage of gambling revenues — without providing the pueblo any benefits. The state, however, contends it isn’t imposing a tax and that the pueblo benefits through exclusivity — meaning the state will only allow tribes to operate Las Vegas-style casinos. The lawsuit claimed the Martinez administration wanted an agreement that would further restrict tribal gambling operations and increase the amount of money the tribe shares with the state. Pojoaque Pueblo Gov. George Rivera said the casino industry isn’t doing well enough for the state to be asking for a higher percentage of gambling revenues. “It’s unfortunate the negotiator was not able to get a compact that satisfied tribal needs,” Rivera said in a phone interview Friday. “I think a negotiator that’s strictly negotiating on what the state wants is never going to resolve a compact issue.” U.S. District Judge James Parker dismissed the lawsuit Monday, finding the state government has sovereign immunity from the lawsuit,

In brief

FBI takes over probe into private prison company BOISE, Idaho — The FBI has launched an investigation of the Corrections Corporation of America over the company’s running of an Idaho prison with a reputation so violent that inmates dubbed it “Gladiator School.” The Nashville, Tenn.-based CCA, which also operates prisons in New Mexico, has operated Idaho’s largest prison for more than a decade, but last year, CCA officials acknowledged it had understaffed the Idaho Correctional Center by thousands of hours in violation of the state contract. CCA also said employees falsified reports to cover up the vacancies. The announcement came after an Associated Press investigation showed CCA sometimes listed guards as working 48 hours straight to meet minimum staffing requirements. The Idaho State Police was asked to investigate the company last year but didn’t, until amid increasing political pressure, the governor ordered the agency to do so last month. Democratic state lawmakers asked the FBI to take up the case last month. Idaho Department of Correction spokesman Jeff Ray confirmed Friday that the FBI met with department director Brent Reinke on Thursday to inform him about the investigation. Idaho State Police spokeswoman Teresa Baker said her agency was no longer involved with the investigation and the FBI has taken it over entirely. “They [the FBI] have other cases that are tied to this one so it worked out better for them to handle it from here,” Baker said.

Woman who drove kids into ocean charged with murder ORLANDO, Fla. — After she drove her minivan into the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean, authorities say a pregnant South Carolina woman tried to call off bystanders hustling to rescue her three screaming children from the water that was rushing in through the windows. Ebony Wilkerson, who was charged with attempted murder Friday, said “everyone was OK” and left the van with her children inside, an affidavit said. The bystanders and beach safety officers, paying no mind to her urgings, pulled the two girls and a boy, ages 3, 9 and 10, through the windows Tuesday on Daytona Beach. Later, Wilkerson denied trying to hurt her children, telling investigators she was driving too close to the water, “and the waves pulled her in,” according to the charging affidavit. Her children told investigators another story. “Mom tried to kill us,” they told detectives, according to the document. “Mom is crazy.”

acquisition is worth about $7.64 billion in cash, and pending other transactions could top more than $9 billion. The deal, announced late Thursday, will bring together Safeway and Albertsons. Cerberus last year had bought the Albertsons stores it didn’t already own from Supvalu Inc., along with four other Supervalu chains. It comes amid ongoing consolidation in the supermarket industry, which is facing growing competition from big-box retailers, specialty chains, drug stores and even dollar stores. Kroger Co., a key competitor, recently snapped up regional chain Harris Teeter. Combined, the companies will have more than 2,400 stores, 27 distribution facilities and 20 manufacturing plants. Safeway and Albertsons say the deal will allow them to better respond to customer needs and lower costs. They also expect to refurbish some stores and expand product offerings once it is complete.

GOP divide highlighted at conservative showcase OXON HILL, Md. — Some of the GOP’s most prominent conservatives insisted Friday that Republicans should emphasize hot-button social issues like abortion and gay marriage in this year’s midterm elections, exposing an ideological divide within a party trying to capture the Senate and then the White House. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, a Southern Baptist pastor, set the tone early in the second day of the Conservative Political Action Conference. “If this nation forgets our God, then God will have every right to forget us,” Huckabee said to cheers. “It’s time for government to scale back, not for people of faith to scale back.” The day also featured Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who, like Huckabee, have run presidential campaigns fueled in part by support from religious voters. But Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, one of the final speakers of the day, represents a new generation of libertarian-minded Republicans less likely to oppose gay marriage or embrace laws allowing the government to affect people’s private lives.

Pressure mounts over religion bill By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press

JACKSON, Miss. — Lawmakers in conservative Mississippi find themselves in a tug-of-war over a religious-practices bill that some say is uncomfortably similar to one recently vetoed by Arizona’s Republican governor. A group that lobbies for the state’s influential Southern Baptist Convention is urging lawmakers to pass the Mississippi Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Others say that Mississippi, with its history of racial oppression, should avoid any law that could lead to discrimination against gay people and other groups. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed a bill after critics said it would hurt the state’s image by allowing businesses to discriminate against gay people. One version of the Mississippi bill passed the Senate and awaits House debate by next week. But critics say the Mississippi bill is still vaguely worded and subject to broad interpretation, and should be killed rather than tweaked. In its current form, it says government cannot put a substantial burden on the practice of religion without a compelling reason. “Why are they trying to enact this?” former state Supreme Court Justice Oliver Diaz asked Friday. “No one’s religious beliefs are being trampled upon in Mississippi. My goodness, we have more churches per capita than any state in the nation.”

Jeffrey A. Sinclair’s court-martial, the woman said the assaults took place in Afghanistan in late 2011 as she grew increasingly despondent over their adulterous relationship. Both times, she said, they got into arguments that ended with Sinclair unbuttoning his pants and forcing her head into his lap as she cried. Sinclair, the 51-year-old former deputy commander of the storied 82nd Airborne Division, is believed to be the highest-ranking U.S. military officer ever court-martialed on sexual assault charges. He could get life in prison if found guilty. The trial is unfolding with the Pentagon under heavy pressure to confront what it has called an epidemic of rape and other sexual misconduct in the ranks. On Thursday, the Senate rejected a bill that would have stripped commanders of authority to decide whether to prosecute serious crimes.

Malaysia Airlines’ last fatal incident was in 1995, when one its planes crashed near the Malaysian city of Tawau, killing 34 people. The 777 had not had a fatal crash in its 20-year history until the Asiana crash in San Francisco in July 2013.

Russia indicates it is prepared to annex Crimea By Steven Lee Myers, David M. Herszenhorn and Rick Gladstone The New York Times

MOSCOW — Russia signaled for the first time Friday that it was prepared to annex Crimea, significantly intensifying its confrontation with the West over the political crisis in Ukraine and threatening to undermine a system of respect for national boundaries that has helped keep the peace in Europe and elsewhere for decades. Leaders of both houses of Russia’s parliament said they would support a vote by Crimeans to break away from Ukraine and become a region of the Russian Federation, ignoring sanctions threats and warnings from the United States and other countries that a vote for secession would violate Ukraine’s constitution and international law. Even as tensions flared between Russian and Ukrainian forces in Crimea, the moves by Russia raised the specter of a protracted conflict over the status of Crimea, which Russian forces occupied a week ago, calling into question not only Russia’s relations with the West but also post-Cold War agreements on the sovereignty of the nations that emerged from the collapse of the Soviet Union. The developments underscored how quickly the crisis has evolved. Earlier this week, Rus-

sian President Vladimir Putin had said he did not foresee the possibility that the Crimean Peninsula would become part of Russia, but on Friday leaders of both houses of Russia’s parliament welcomed a delegation from Crimea’s regional assembly and declared that they would support a vote to break away from Ukraine, now scheduled for March 16. The referendum — barely a week away — has been denounced by the fledgling national government in Kiev, which said it would invalidate the outcome and dissolve the Crimean parliament. President Barack Obama has also rejected the referendum, and the U.S. government announced sanctions Thursday in response to Russia’s de facto military occupation of the Crimean Peninsula. Russia denounced those sanctions in a blunt rejoinder Friday evening, posted on the Foreign Ministry website. The statement said Russia’s foreign minister, Sergei V. Lavrov, had spoken by telephone with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and warned that “hasty and ill-considered steps” to impose sanctions on Russia officials “would inevitably backfire on the United States itself.” Russia’s Interfax news agency reported that Lavrov and Kerry would meet again soon. A senior State Department official confirmed they had spoken but said it was unclear when they would meet again.

JERUSALEM — Secretary of State John Kerry made an unannounced visit to Jordan on Friday to consult King Abdullah II about the IsraeliPalestinian peace negotiations, even as the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, reiterated positions that underscored the challenge that Kerry faces in trying to shrink gaps between the two sides. Abbas told student activists from his Fatah faction that he would “not accept Israel’s demands to recognize it as a Jewish state despite pressure put on us,” and that he considers illegal all homes Israel built in the West Bank and East Jerusalem after it seized the territories in 1967. He said he considered all of East Jerusalem to be the capital of his future state and would not accept a single neighborhood, as some have suggested. Separately, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel said in an interview broadcast Friday night on Israeli television that some Jewish settlements in the West Bank would not be part of his state if an agreement was reached. “Everyone understands that,” he said, although it was a rare concession for him to make to a domestic audience. “I’m going to make sure that that will be very limited.” The statements from the two leaders come at a critical juncture in the nine-month peace talks that Kerry started last summer. A U.S. team is completing a framework of core principles for a final-status agreement that would extend the talks past an April 29 deadline, and Abbas is scheduled to visit the White House to discuss the plan March 17. After spending the week in crisis-diplomacy mode on the conflict in Ukraine, Kerry took a 1,500-mile detour Friday from Rome to Aqaba, Jordan, for a two-hour meeting with the king, before heading back to Washington. Neither Kerry

nor Abdullah made any public statements after the meeting, one of a series Kerry has held recent ly with leaders throughout the Arab world, where skepticism about the prospects for IsraeliPalestinian peace remains high. Abbas denied a report by the Palestinian newspaper Al Quds that the Obama administration had presented copies of the framework this week to Netanyahu and the chief Palestinian negotiator, Saeb Erekat, during their visits to Washington. Palestinian leaders expressed serious doubts about the prospective framework in recent days, accusing the Obama administration of adopting the Israeli position on central issues, particularly the recognition of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people.

Unlike some of his senior aides, Abbas did not say that he expected the talks to fall apart when the framework was presented. But during the meeting with students at his compound in Ramallah on Thursday night, he seemed to take a harder line than usual on the issue of borders. “The negotiations resumed on the basis of the 1967 lines — thus, we emphasized from the beginning that Israeli settlement inside the 1967 lines is illegitimate,” Abbas said in remarks broadcast on Palestinian television and published by Wafa, the official Palestinian news agency. “When we sign the agreement, the Israelis should start gradual withdrawal. After the specific timeline, there must be no single Israeli in the Palestinian state.”

Mustafa Alani, an independent analyst in Saudi Arabia, where President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit this month, said Arab leaders had watched with dismay as the U.S.-brokered negotiations focused on Israeli concerns over security in the Jordan Valley portion of the West Bank, and on Netanyahu’s demand for recognition as a Jewish state. “For us, the most important issue is how far Mr. Obama is ready and able to pressure Israelis for concessions,” Alani said. Arab leaders “were ready to put pressure on the Palestinians, but they were expecting similar pressure from the Americans on the Israelis, and they don’t see this is happening. We look at Mr. Obama as somebody selling dreams, not reality.”

Dems: King viewed as primary frontrunner Continued from Page A-1 Republican nominating convention when he first ran for office. He managed by a twovote margin to earn a place on the primary ballot. King finished third with 31 percent of delegate votes at the 2006 Democratic convention when he initially ran for attorney general. Yet, he went on to win the primary by more than 17,000 votes and got 57 percent of the vote in winning the general election. State Democratic Party Chairman Sam Bregman said the convention tests a campaign’s organizational abilities and the candidate’s message. “It allows people to actually hear what candidates stand for, and it shows whether or not someone is actually capable of rallying the support they are going to need, obviously, going into a general election,” Bregman said. Former Democratic State Land Commissioner Jim Baca disagrees. “It has very little relation to who wins the primary. It’s sort of inside game stuff. I

think it really makes the candidates cater to a very small group of voters rather than going out and trying to get votes on their own platforms,” Baca said. King is viewed as the front-runner in the gubernatorial primary, in large part because of his name recognition as a two-term statewide elected official and the son of the late Bruce King, the state’s longest serving governor. But King’s campaign manager, Jim Farrell, plays down convention expectations. “We have no predictions, and don’t see winning or losing on Saturday as having much bearing on the campaign,” Farrell said. “Gary has never worked at being an

I do this so that the Lab can move quickly past any institutional distraction and continue to deliver on our mission,” he said. “After a short transition of duties, we will begin the search for Beth’s successor,” McMillan said. According to documents obtained by the Los Alamos Monitor, the Inspector General’s Office alleged that neither the “senior lab manager” nor the

Suspected thief on video is indicted An accused jewelry thief whose image was captured by a surveillance camera as he allegedly was swiping items from a downtown jewelry store Jan. 28 has been indicted on shoplifting charges. Santa Fe Police Department spokeswoman Celina Westervelt said police were able to identify 61-year-old Carlos Lovato through community tips about a week after releasing video that allegedly shows him stealing an estimated $2,000 worth of jewelry from the Turquoise Butterfly jewelry store, 149 E. Alameda St. After learning his identity, Westervelt said, police were able to obtain the suspect’s address and arrested him at his Santa Fe residence Feb. 8. He was indicted by a grand jury on a single count of shoplifting March 6. Westervelt said in a news release that Lovato has a history of shoplifting “as well as multiple other offenses,” and that his criminal record spans more than a decade. The New Mexican

Will we reach 20 percent? We don’t know, and that’s why we turned in over 7,500 signatures to ensure we’re on the ballot.” Rael said the convention helps motivate the Democratic voter base, and he pledged to stay in the race even if he comes up short of needed delegate support. Morales said the convention is useful because “it gets me into all parts of the state of New Mexico and meeting people.”

should be approved. Ted Fairbanks, 47, a law student and political independent in Santa Cruz, Calif., said the administration should refuse to grant TransCanada a permit on the grounds that the project will lead to greater environmental destruction. “I oppose it because I think we need to begin weaning ourselves from petroleum that devastates Canadian wetlands and other” habitats, he said. “To build a pipeline that will create a couple thousand jobs, and only for a short time, to take oil down to Texas so we can sell it to other places, is really shortsighted. I think we ought to start developing other renewable fuels, particularly biofuels.” It remains unclear how much that public polling will influence the administration’s final permitting decision. The State Department has completed its environmental assessment of the proposal, which concluded that the development would not have a major climate impact given current oil prices. “Bipartisan majorities in Congress and a majority of the American people support moving forward with the Keystone XL pipeline,” Cindy Schild, the American Petroleum Institute’s senior refining and oil sands issues manager, said in a conference call Thursday.

consultant hired by the lab had reported their relationship to the lab. The Los Alamos Monitor reported that documents from the Inspector General’s Office also allege the unnamed consultant performed work for the lab and collected $4,700 for services before the contract was signed. The report said the lab reimbursed the federal government $23,100, the total amount paid to the consultant, the newspaper reported. In a statement issued in February, the lab said, “When our ethics office became aware of this consulting contract and reviewed the facts, the Lab found the arrangement did not comply

with internal policies relating to contracts with near relatives of employees. As a result, the contract was terminated and the government was reimbursed. Since then, the Lab has put in place a new process to help ensure compliance with policies for consulting agreements.” Sellers joined the lab as deputy director in 2011. Prior to joining LANL, she was senior vice president for AREVA Federal Services in Bethesda, Md., and worked with the Department of Energy and private subcontractors on all aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle.

wide Financial. Some economists also suggested that having endured harsh weather, the economy may be poised to pick up soon. “If not for poor weather conditions, job growth would have been stronger,” said Michelle Meyer, an economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. “This suggests we should see solid gains … in coming months.” The figures were a welcome surprise after recent economic data showed that severe weather had closed factories, lowered auto sales and slowed home purchases. Along with a sharp increase in wages last month, the jobs report indicated confidence among some employers that consumer spending will increase in the near future. The severe winter appeared to have less effect on hiring than most economists had feared. Construction companies, which usually stop work in bad weather, added 15,000 jobs. Manufacturing gained 6,000 for a second straight month. Government added 13,000 jobs, the most in six months. Daniel Alpert, managing partner at Westwood Capital, noted that roughly two-thirds of the job growth in January and February was in higher-paying industries. That’s a reversal from all of last year, when about twothirds of job growth was in lower-paying fields. A category called professional and business services, which includes better-paying jobs such as engineers, accountants and architects, along with some lower-paying jobs such as temporary workers, added 79,000 jobs in February. That was the most in a year. Retailers, though, lost 4,100 jobs, transportation and warehousing firms 3,600. Despite February’s solid overall gain, the monthly average of 129,000 jobs that employers have added from December through February marks the weakest three-month stretch since mid-2012. It’s down from a 225,000 average for the previous three months. The government revised up its estimate of job gains for December and January by a combined 25,000. Friday’s report makes it likely that the Federal Reserve will continue reducing its monthly bond purchases at its next meeting March 18-19. The Fed is buying Treasury and mortgage bonds to try to keep long-term loan rates low to

spur growth. Fed policymakers have reduced their monthly bond purchases by $10 billion at each of their past two meetings to $65 billion. On Monday, Karen Wilson will start her first full-time job with benefits in nearly eight years. As a data-entry clerk for Peoria County, Ill., she will process traffic tickets, drunkendriving violations and other citations. After a layoff in 2006, the 42-year-old worked several part-time jobs and got financial aid to return to school. Her car broke down last Thanksgiving night after accumulating 153,000 miles. She’s had to wait for a bus in freezing temperatures. Still, things are looking up. Though her new job pays just $12 an hour, “it’s a foot in the door, and it can lead to so many other things,” Wilson said. “I will actually get a lunch hour.” Average hourly pay rose 9 cents in February to $24.31, the biggest gain since June. Hourly wages have risen 2.2 percent over the past 12 months, ahead of 1.6 percent inflation over that time. That could mean that employers are finally starting to boost pay after several years of stagnant wages. Economists cautioned that further sustained increases would be needed to signify a broad pickup in pay. Some of the wage increase likely reflects the recent job gains in higherpaying fields. The harsh winter weather did have some impact. More than 6 million Americans said weather forced them to work part time in February rather than full time. That was the highest such level for any February in the 36 years that the government has tracked the figure. Those workers were counted as employed and did not distort either the February job gain or unemployment rate. But for many, fewer hours will mean lower pay. That might be holding back consumer spending and the economy in the current JanuaryMarch quarter. Some recent reports hint that the economy will accelerate as the weather warms. The number of people who applied for unemployment benefits fell last week and is at about the same level as before the recession. Those applications essentially reflect layoffs. The decline suggests that companies are confident about future growth, because layoffs would rise if employers expected business to weaken.

From corn farmers in Iowa to oil-rig operators in the Gulf of Mexico to rubber growers in Indonesia, businesses depend on forecasts generated by data from the equipment.

Lack of info on WIPP frustrates residents

The Associated Press

CARLSBAD — It’s been three weeks since the radiation sensors were triggered and the exhaust dampers at the federal government’s only underground nuclear waste dump slammed shut, putting the repository’s massive salt caverns off-limits and the nation’s cleanup efforts on hold. The U.S. Department of Energy says low levels of radiation made it past the ventilation system’s air filters and exposed 13 workers. Agency officials describe the amount as minuscule, saying the workers aren’t likely to face any serious effects and there’s no public health threat. But residents and officials voiced frustration at a town hall Thursday night, saying the Energy Department and managers at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant are leaving them in the dark about what’s happening at the repository. “Nobody knows what the plans look like. Nobody knows what the agenda looks like. We just hear a lot of surmises about what might happen and what might not happen,” John Heaton, a former state representative and head of Mayor Dale Janway’s nuclear task force, told a panel of officials at the town hall. “We think that we should be the No. 1 partner and know everything that is going on, from A to Z,” he said, explaining that the community feels as if it’s being sidestepped, with action being orchestrated in Washington, D.C., instead of locally. Energy Department officials said there is no intent to hide anything and some information is simply unknown. Questions about what caused the leak at the repository, the extent of the contamination and the future of the federal government’s cleanup efforts have been swirling for days. Work is ongoing to get air-monitoring equipment underground that will pave the way for specially trained crews to enter. A probe could be sent underground as soon as Friday, but Jose Franco, manager of the Energy Department’s Carlsbad Field Office, said the timing of cleanup, and the resources and costs involved, won’t be known until crews can actually enter. Carlsbad resident Karen Armendariz said her first concern after hearing about the leak was the extent of contamination and whether her children and grandchildren would be affected. Despite the assurances from the Energy Department, she’s still anxious. “I hear what they’re saying and I want to believe it, but it’s just so much uncertainty,” she said. “We do feel poorly informed.” New Mexico Environment Secretary Ryan Flynn also pleaded with federal officials during the meeting to make the recovery effort transparent. Officials promised to host public meetings each week. Another community meeting was planned Friday by U.S. Rep. Steve Pearce, R-N.M.

Artful arguments New Mexico students show off debate skills at annual tourney

magine having 30 minutes to research, write and then present a response to the debate question, “Will Mexico’s Energy Reform Catalyze Enough Private Sector Support/Involvement To Be Successful?” Or working with a partner on a short scene that prohibits you from using props and touching or looking at the other person. Or firing away in a game of verbal chess at a rival debater in a small hotel room while the judge of the event reclines on the bed because there’s no other place to sit. Roughly 300 students from about 20 New Mexico schools faced these challenges Thursday and Friday as they took part in the New Mexico Speech and Debate Tournament at the Courtyard by Marriott. Participants are members of the National Speech and Debate Association. Its membership includes about 120,000 students from about 3,000 schools nationwide. The three-day event, which ends Saturday, puts the students through a dizzying array of “rounds” in various speech and debate categories, including Public Forum, Policy Debate, Dramatic Interpretation and Lincoln/Douglas, a reference to the famous series of public debates between Illinois senatorial candidates Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas in 1858. In many cases, participants have to be ready to take either a supportive or opposing stance on an issue based on the result of a coin toss. “You get to learn a lot about the topic” while preparing for the tournament, said Savannah Bustillo, an Albuquerque Academy senior. “It’s a nice way to see both sides of the argument.”

Jenny Wang, left, and Grace Kim, both 15-year-old students at Los Alamos High School, perform their interpretation of ‘Sleeping Beauty and the Beast’ at the tournament Friday.

In one hotel room, Desert Academy freshmen Rise Miller and Riley Kelehan, who billed themselves as “Rise and Riley” (“Hopefully people will at least remember our names,” Kelehan said), took on Taos High School senior Eli Cain and junior Shay Moon in a 45-minute debate on the merits of same-sex schools. Cain and Moon sported pink bow ties and colorful suspenders. Cain also was wearing a pair of bright yellow Wolverine-themed socks. “They make me feel more charismatic,” he said. The coaches — Lisa Lincoln for Desert and Lara Mace for Taos High School — watched as the debate teams engaged in what the judge termed an “invigorating” argument. The Taos team cited sources that say there is little evidence to support the notion that same-gender classes pay off academically. The Desert duo made strong eye contact with the judge and observers in the room. In the end, the judge sided with Taos, lauding Cain

and Moon for their research. Mace said the debate tournament encourages a level of engagement rarely seen in the classroom and leads students to research an array of topics that they can discuss at the drop of a hat. Kelehan said being able to effectively convey ideas is a talent that will help in any career, especially “a position where you take a leadership role.” Sometimes the debaters do get rattled. In this tournament, students and coaches said they have seen debaters change sides in the middle of an argument. Cain and Moon said they watched as a rival team, desperately losing ground, began to dance. “The judge didn’t like it and walked out,” Moon said. The public is invited to watch Saturday’s debate events, which run from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Courtyard by Marriott, 3347 Cerrillos Road. Contact Robert Nott at 986-3021 or

Drought deepens in N.M., despite recent rainfall By Staci Matlock The New Mexican

Though it was slowed by recent storms, drought continued to deepen across New Mexico, according to the latest U.S. Drought Monitor. Last weekend’s storm added a few inches of snow in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, bringing the snowpack at the Santa Fe snow telemetry site to 39 inches. Melted down, the snow would equal 7 inches of water. The site gained 11 inches of snow March 2. “It’s bad,” said Wayne Sleep, the state’s snow surveyor with the Natural Resources Conservation Service. “We’re so far behind at this point that the recent storms are helping but not bringing us anywhere near where we need to be.” While New Mexico currently has no areas in exceptional drought conditions, the amount of the state in extreme drought, the next level

down, increased to 23 percent from 14.8 percent in one week. The short-term forecast indicates another storm is headed for New Mexico over the weekend, with the potential for more snow and rain in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. But the drought forecast through May 31 still shows the drought persisting or getting worse, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said. The U.S. Drought Monitor is a compilation of data from several agencies. It rates drought weekly in the United States, based on a variety of factors such as soil moisture, precipitation, snowpack and reservoir levels. The six rating levels range from no drought to exceptional drought. The drought monitor map is jointly produced by the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the NOAA, the U.S. Department of Agri-

culture and 350 drought observers nationwide. Sleep said the latest water supply forecast for the Rio Grande from March to July is continuing to decline. Total flows in the Upper Rio Grande through June are projected at 50 percent to 70 percent of average, Sleep said. The further south the river flows, the worse the situation looks. North of Santa Fe, flows past the Otowi Bridge gauge near San Ildefonso Pueblo are expected to be 40 percent of normal. Flows past the San Marcial gauge near Elephant Butte are predicted to hit only 13 percent of normal. The Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range Basin was at about 77 percent of total average precipitation for the water year dating to October. The snow-water equivalent was 59 percent of normal on March 6. The Rio Chama River Basin had 50 percent to 70 percent of average total pre-

cipitation since October. Outside of New Mexico, some of the crop and pasture states are drying up rapidly. One-fourth of the nation’s corn crops and hay are in regions hit by drought this winter. More than 40 percent of the cattle-growing and winter wheat regions are in drought. More than half of Texas’ rangeland and pastures were rated poor to very poor. Topsoil moisture was rated as very short across 78 percent of the state. A massive storm in late February brought a reprieve to droughtstricken California, where more than a dozen towns have been in danger of running out of water. But central California, part of the nation’s bread basket, remains critically dry. Contact Staci Matlock at 986-3055 or smatlock@ Follow her on Twitter @stacimatlock.

Evans would joke that if Cabela’s, the national outfitter, ever ran out of any piece of fishing gear, they should call Padilla, who was always well-stocked. Padilla was already a Realtor by 1967, when Evans joined the profession. Back then, a corps of about 10 real-estate professionals used to meet around 7 a.m. at La Posada to discuss business. “People just liked him,” Evans said, adding, “He was easy to like.” Chip Chippeau, chairman of the board of Century Bank, said people generally think of bank board members as “stoic,” but Padilla “really did have a heart. He just wanted to take care of people. He was concerned about everybody in Santa Fe.” Matt Zamora, a former state district judge, and his family were friends with the Padilla family in Casa Solana. They helped put together an annual block party during the Fiesta de Santa Fe. Zamora and Padilla liked to go bowling and fishing together. “Reyes was gentleman and a very nice person to know,” Zamora said. Marissa Padilla, one of his eight grandchildren, said, “Our grandfather gave his grandkids the greatest gift — his example of a full life in service to community, country and above all, family. He instilled in us a deep appreciation for our unique culture and the abundant gifts of nature. Grandpa Reyes always challenged us to broaden our minds by taking on new adventures and exploring a diversity of viewpoints.” To Reyes R. Padilla III, “My grandfather, my tocayo [person of the same name], embodied everything I associate with great strength. I learned so many life lessons sitting beside him on his boat fishing or at the kitchen table, talking and drinking coffee, that I will carry on in my life.” And Mikaela Padilla, the youngest of them at 22 and a veteran of the war in Afghanistan, had a “special bond.” Padilla was born in Santa Fe on June 29, 1924, to Reyes and Clara Padilla. He graduated from Santa Fe High School in 1942 and two months later joined the Marines. He was assigned to the South Pacific, where he participated in campaigns at Bougainville in the Solomon Islands, on Guam and on Iwo Jima, the bloodiest battle of World War II, in which his cousin, Bennie Padilla, also served. After the war, he returned to Santa Fe, where he met Zenaida Lujan, a sister of former Congressman Manuel Lujan. They married (Bennie Padilla married another Lujan sister) and had five sons and one daughter, Carmella Padilla, a local author. “My father was a proud and gentle man with a huge heart who treated everyone he came across with compassion and respect,” Carmella Padilla said. “His life was rooted in old-fashioned values of hard work and devotion to family. As his only daughter, he empowered me to believe I could achieve my personal and professional goals as long as I honored my commitments and maintained the integrity of my beliefs. I’m so proud of all he accomplished for Santa Fe and am forever grateful that he was my father.” Reyes Padilla worked for the U.S. Postal Service, and from 1953 to 1957 he owned Rey’s Gulf Service, a gas station at the corner of Marcy Street and Washington Avenue. In 1961, then-Gov. Edwin Mechem appointed him to the New Mexico Motor Vehicle Commission. Licensed as a real estate broker in 1960, he established Reyes Padilla Realty and was active in the industry for nearly 50 years. Padilla served on the city’s Planning Commission. He was appointed to the New Mexico Real Estate Commission in 1967 and to the board of the National Association of Realtors in 1969. He was elected president of the Santa Fe Realtors Association in 1970 and served in leadership positions on the state and national bodies. He was New Mexico Realtor of the Year in 1975. Padilla served for more than 20 years on the board of directors of Century Bank and its predecessors, Mutual Building and Loan and Century Federal. A rosary will be recited for him at 7 p.m. Monday, March 10, in Rosario Chapel at Rosario Cemetery, and a funeral Mass will be celebrated at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, followed by burial at Santa Fe National Cemetery at 2:15 p.m. Contact Anne Constable at 986-3022 or



Saturday, March 8, 2014 THE NEW MEXICAN


Book tells of Coloradans who saved N.M. from rebels I t has often been said that the Civil War was the single most important event in the past of the American people. Certainly nothing else before or since touched the emotions of the nation so deeply. Even now, interest in the conflict remains high, almost 150 years after the last shot was fired. I was told by one Marc authority that at Simmons least 40,000 books Trail Dust about the Civil War have been published. If that’s true, it is hard to imagine how even the best of libraries could find shelf space for more than a small portion of that number. Fortunately, persons interested in that part of the war that unfolded in the far Southwest don’t have to contend with so many titles. On the New Mexico campaign of 1862, for example, major books probably number in the dozens. The reason is the scale of operations on the upper Rio Grande was small, at least compared to the vast theater of action in the East.

Among this small group of volumes, a favorite of mine is Boldly They Rode by Pvt. Ovando J. Hollister. He was a member of the First Colorado Regiment of Volunteers, formed at the outbreak of the war to defend the West for the Union. When word reached Colorado late in February 1862 that Gen. Henry Sibley’s Texas Brigade had invaded Southern New Mexico and defeated federal forces at Valverde, the Regiment of Volunteers marched south to the rescue. There was considerable urgency in their gait because all knew that should New Mexico fall, Sibley’s men would be in position to launch an attack on the Colorado goldfields. And gold in the hands of the Confederacy — allowing it to buy arms in Europe — might just turn the tide of war. At the prospect of a battle there was “universal joy” in the regiment’s ranks, according to Pvt. Hollister. He was so excited by it all that he kept a day-by-day journal, not wanting a single incident to escape memory. After the campaign was over, his companions prevailed upon the young man to write a history of the regiment, based on his diary. And when it was finished, they all contributed to a fund that paid

number of troops involved, casualties at Glorieta Pass were proportionally greater than at Gettysburg. “At one point,” declared Hollister, “we rode 500 yards through a perfect hailstorm of bullets.”

The issue was actually decided by a party of the Colorado Volunteers who slipped behind rebel lines and put their wagon train of supplies to the torch. That forced Sibley’s Texans to begin a slow withdrawal toward El Paso. Pvt. Hollister and his fellow soldiers were ordered to follow and make sure that the enemy kept moving south. The Colorado men, like the Confederates, were forced to live off the country, which meant stealing from the rural folk. “The truth was,” lamented Hollister, “there was nothing in the povertystricken, God forsaken country to steal. New Mexico mutton was more wool and bone, at least it seemed impossible to separate the two.” It is small passages such as that which make the young solider’s book so readable, along with the smell of gunpowder and rattle of sabers in the battle scenes. I go back to his pages time and again and, even in the re-reading, never find them dull. Now in semi-retirement, author Marc Simmons wrote a weekly history column for more than 35 years.

publication costs. “I make no pretensions to literary merit or taste,” Hollister wrote modestly when the book appeared in 1863. But in fact, he was an educated man and a natural writer so that his gritty account overflows with details of both the humorous and tragic sides of the campaign. The Colorado Volunteers were a wild, unruly, hard-drinking lot who could hold the battle line in a stand-up fight. When there was no money to buy them food or clothes for the long journey to New Mexico, they found provisions themselves — by raiding hen houses and breaking into stores and saloons. No one dared oppose them. When the undisciplined regiment reached the New Mexico frontier, the men found a fandango underway in a small village. After they crashed the party, a shooting got started and 20 people died. Reaching Fort Union, the Coloradans joined with federal troops and marched west toward Santa Fe, which by then was in Confederate hands. Fifteen miles east of the capital, the two sides came together at the decisive Battle of Glorieta Pass. It was a bloody encounter! For the

He is being held at the Santa Fe County jail in lieu of a $2,500 cash bond. The neighbor, a volunteer firefighter who lives on Arroyo Pequeño, a residential road in Tesuque, told deputies that he noticed his vehicle had been burglarized and that firefighting equipment and gear were missing, along with a radar detector, items worth a combined $5,500. The victim had a security camera on his property, and the video showed a young man opening the car and stealing the items. Deputies quickly found fresh footprints and followed them to a nearby residence. A deputy wrote that the shoe print appeared to be the “Michael Jordan brand,” which has a distinct pattern. A deputy wrote that investigators got the landowner’s permission to search the home and found Montoya shortly after. The deputy wrote that while he questioned Montoya, the suspect became nervous and fumbled with his hands. The 22-year-old eventually told deputies that he had burglarized the vehicle and pointed

A District Court judge says she’ll wait until September to make a final decision on a petition asking her to order the Department of Health to increase the state’s supply of legally grown marijuana to meet the demand of patients enrolled in the Medical Cannabis Program. Attorney Brian Egolf filed the petition in January on behalf of Mark Springer — a would-be nonprofit producer of medical marijuana, and his company, Medical Marijuana Inc. — asking the court to compel Health Secretary Retta Ward to ensure supply meets demand. The petition cited the department’s own survey, published in November, which determined only about 20 percent of patient demand was being met. Springer has been trying to get licensed as a nonprofit producer since 2009. The department has not added any new producers since 2010, when the cannabis program had about 3,000 patients. There are now more than 10,000 enrolled. Between the time when Springer filed his petition and a hearing Friday on its merits, the department announced proposed changes to the program to increase the number of producers in the state and the number of plants those producers could grow. In light of those proposed changes, Egolf said Friday, Springer’s petition could be amended to simply hold Ward accountable for making the changes within a set period of time. Originally, Springer had called for reopening the application process for legal growers. “We don’t want it to be ‘sometime in the spring,’ ” Egolf said. “Require her to do what she’s already said she’ll do within a specific time frame.” Singleton also is the judge in a pending case filed in 2011 by six other would-be producers

Media mogul Ted Turner is in Buenos Aires hospital

Belafonte receives honorary Berklee degree

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — American media mogul Ted Turner has been hospitalized for an undisclosed ailment in Argentina’s capital. Turner Enterprises spokesman Phillip Evans in Atlanta said the CNN founder was hospitalized in South America and that “no further details will be provided.” A security guard at the Instituto Argentino de Diagnostico y Tratamiento confirmed to The Associated Press that Turner was hospitalized there. Speaking on condition of anonymity because of hospital policy, he said the institute’s director told him that Turner’s companions had asked to release no information about his condition. The 75-year-old billionaire was first treated earlier Friday at the San Carlos Sanatorium in Bariloche, near his ranch in Argentina’s Patagonia region. Turner owns 14 ranches in the United States — including properties in New Mexico — and three in Argentina, including “La Primavera,” a 11,000-acre ranch along the Traful river in Argentina’s Nahuel Huapi National Park. The ranch hosts private expeditions and boasts some of the world’s best trout fishing and hunting.

BOSTON — Boston’s Berklee College of Music has presented an honorary doctor of music degree to singer, songwriter and activist Harry Belafonte. The entertainer was honored Thursday night during a concert in his honor. Berklee students and faculty performed the celebration of Belafonte’s life and music. Belafonte was a confidante of Martin Luther King Jr. during the civil rights movement. He helped start the USA for Africa project to fight hunger, and also pushed for an end to apartheid in South Africa.

t last, Aaron Paul is the hero. Except he almost wasn’t. “I didn’t even know about that,” he says with a smile, acknowledging concerns he might be “too edgy” for the virtuous good-guy part he plays in Need for Speed. Apparently the studio was first looking at the Breaking Bad star to play the villain. “On the show, I was so used to playing a character who was so insecure, just beaten down, brutally tortured,” Paul said. “So it was nice to jump into the skin of a guy who was very confident, very focused, very driven. Hopefully, I brought all those qualities to the character.” If Paul seems an odd choice for a Disney/DreamWorks car-chase movie based on the popular EA video games, he thinks so, too. “I never really pictured an actor like me being the leading guy in what I thought this film was going to be. I was like, ‘That’s an interesting casting choice,’ because they knew I was going to bring an intensity to the characters I play, naturally. It’s what I like to do,” he said. “To be honest, I didn’t play the game that much. They’ve made, like, 18 games. I had no idea that was the case until I started the movie. But I’ve loved cars ever since I was a kid. I have an old classic, ’65 Chevy Cobra, had it for years. It’s my baby. So I appreciated cars, but I appreciate them much more now.” In a side room at a huge Burbank movie theater where Paul, Need for Speed director Scott Waugh and co-star Scott Mescudi will host a nationally synched, 100-venue advance screening, he admits he still feels more at home on smaller sets. “I always gravitated toward independent films because that’s where I feel the true storytelling is [happening]. I love going to a set where there are 25 people in the crew and you know every single person’s first and last name, most likely their middle, and it’s like fam-

ily. There’s something magical about that,” says the Idaho native, who was in Smashed and Choking Man, as well as Mission: Impossible III and K-Pax. “But coming off Breaking Bad, I knew … I needed to jump into the studio system so I could continue to do the independent films I love. That said, after reading the script and talking with our director, it was such a fun ride. … I could relate to the characters and Scott’s vision.” Need for Speed’s plot concerns Mount Kisco, N.Y., mechanic Tobey, who happens to be one of the world’s greatest drivers. High school nemesis Dino (Dominic Cooper) is also one of the world’s greatest drivers, though not quite as good — and that really bugs him. Dino makes it big while Tobey stays home, and eventually their rivalry leads to the death of one of Tobey’s best friends. Tobey’s sent up the river for a crime he clearly didn’t commit. Once out, he and his buddies decide the best vengeance against Dino would be — of course — to beat him in the big race. Waugh (Act of Valor) wanted to craft a throwback to classic car-culture movies. Bullitt, Vanishing Point, The Blues Brothers and Smokey and the Bandit were among their gospels, according to Paul. As in those pre-CGI movies, in Need for Speed, “all the stunts actually happened,” Paul says. “They actually drove the car off the cliff and it was caught by the helicopter. They actually jumped over the four lanes of traffic.” Paul proudly declares that he did some of the driving stunts himself. “A lot of the high-speed driving was me. Scott said, ‘If you want to do this movie … I’m going to need you to really learn how to drive.’ He just kept saying, ‘Watch Steve McQueen, because he was a racer before. And your character, Tobey, lives and breathes driving,’ ” he said. “When there are cameras rolling, you can’t be like” — he feigns wide-eyed panic. “You have to be driving.”

Funeral services and memorials REYES RAMON PADILLA Cherished son, husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, died in the early morning hours of March 4, 2014, with his family at his side. He was 89. Born in Santa Fe on June 29, 1924, to Reyes and Clara Padilla, Reyes lived his entire life in the city, establishing himself as a strong family man, respected businessman and loyal friend. With Zenaida, his wife of 66 years, he lovingly raised five sons and one daughter, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. He was known as a kind, elegant and funloving man, an avid fisherman, and a proud World War II U.S. Marine Corps veteran. He was dearly loved and will be deeply missed. Reyes graduated from Santa Fe High School in May 1942. Two months later, he joined the Marines, serving until October 1945 as a Corporal in the 3rd Marine Division. He was assigned to the South Pacific, where he participated in campaigns at Bougainville in the Solomon Islands, on Guam, and on Iwo Jima. After the war, he returned to Santa Fe, where he met and married Zenaida Lujan and launched a busy and varied professional life, including work for the U.S. Post Office, City of Santa Fe and in the insurance industry. From 1953 to 1957, he owned and operated Rey’s Gulf Service, a gas station at the northeast corner of Washington Avenue and Marcy Street.

Glenys Jurgensen, 92, died February 21 in Santa Fe. She was born March 8, 1921 in Lindenhurst, N.Y. Her father Alvin Frevert was a plumber, all-around handyman, and an enthusiastic gardener, a skill and dedication he passed on to his daughter. Her mother Isabella was a seamstress, homemaker, serious church-goer, and steward of the family income, all qualities Glenys learned to value. After receiving her diploma from Lenox Hill Hospital School of Nursing, Glenys enlisted in the U.S. Army Nursing Corps. She worked in evacuation hospitals in Normandy and St. Lo weeks after the invasions, in July, 1944. She received a Purple Heart when her hospital in Belgium was bombed. While on leave in Paris, Glenys went out with a captain in the Army Engineer Corps. He had whistled at her on the boulevards. With victory declared in Europe, Glenys volunteered for the Philippines and left on a Liberty Ship headed for Manila. By the time she arrived, the war was over, and she waited for the soldiers to return home before being able to ship out and be relieved of active duty. Taking only enough time to tell her parents and buy china and linens, Glenys moved to Albuquerque to marry Clifford Jurgensen, the soldier who had whistled at her. She immediately fell in love with this new land, so foreign from the beaches and oceans of her past. While Clifford traveled throughout the state as a civil engineer, Glenys happily moved from one small town to another. She was a little worried when her brother visited Jemez Springs in the 1940s, thinking he would report back to her parents that she was living in wilderness poverty. Clifford and Glenys had five children: Karen (Watkins), Kathi (Marchiondo), Ray, Richard and Glenn. Glenys was an indulgent mother, raising the children largely by herself as Clifford traveled to build New Mexico’s roads. She instilled in her young family the values and pleasures that she found dear: love of reading and intellectual curiosity, wonder at nature, enjoyment in living, responsibility for helping others, and love of family. Later in life, she delighted in her grandchildren, Lisa, Anna, Amy, and Cliff. After her husband’s death, Glenys found new interests and pastimes. She learned to be a skilled watercolorist and enjoyed water aerobics, a return to the swimming she loved as a child. She turned alkaline New Mexico yards into lush gardens. She traveled throughout the state with Senior Center friends. She expanded her collection and knowledge of jazz music. She kept family holiday traditions and never forgot a birthday or anniversary. Glenys was brave, hard-working, resilient, loving and happy. May the Lord lift up his countenance upon her and give her peace and joy eternal. A celebration service will be held at St. Luke Lutheran Church in Albuquerque on Saturday March 29 at 10:00. Burial will follow at Sunset Memorial Park.

Arnold A. Rivin, known to his many friends as Arnie, died in Santa Fe, New Mexico on February 25, 2014 at the age of 90. Arnie was born in Hudson, NY, on April 22, 1923, and grew up in Missoula, Montana. He was a 1947 graduate of the University of Montana with a degree in journalism. During World War II he served with the 104th Infantry Division in campaigns in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. Arnie was preceded in death by his parents, Samuel and Rose Rivin, and his sister, Minette, of Missoula, and by his brother, Lee of Spokane, WA. He is survived by his loving wife, Mary Honor, and his nieces Vicki Mitchell of Spokane and Marcie Roe of Billings. In 1947 and 1948 Arnie worked in Washington, DC for the American Hospital Association as a writer in fields related to hospital administration. That was when he met a young Cornell graduate named Mary Honor Crowley, who lived in the same apartment building. She had a housekeeping room and no kitchen. He had a small, but serviceable kitchen on the floor below. Soon Mary Honor’s dishes were coming down the back stairs to his kitchen, and the two were discussing marriage. Arnie was then promoted to the AHA’s Chicago headquarters as editor of its journals. Mary Honor was assigned to the American Embassy in Vienna, Austria. After her return from nearly 5 Foreign Service years in Vienna, the marriage finally took place in Washington, DC in April 1959. Mary Honor immediately joined Arnie in Chicago. In 1957 Arnie accepted a position in the industrial management with Hollister, Incorporated, a Chicago-based medical products company, where he served as Vice President and Assistant to the President and as a member of the Board of Directors. He also served on a number of related corporate and industry boards. Arnie was a life member of the Society of Professional Journalists and the Chicago Headline Club. When the Rivins decided to retire in 1974, they chose Santa Fe, New Mexico, which they had often visited on vacations, attracted by its interesting archaeology, history, art, and classical music, exemplified by the Santa Fe Opera. That same year Arnie was elected to the Board of Trustees of St. Vincent Hospital, and he was twice elected its chairman. He was first president of the then newlyformed St. Vincent Hospital Foundation. At the same time he was serving on the boards of the Santa Fe Opera and the Santa Fe Opera Foundation. For several years he headed up the Opera’s fund drive, while also taking part as a director and the treasurer of the Santa Fe Concert Association, a board member of the Northeast Neighborhood Association and a founding member of the Don Quixotes of Santa Fe. Arnie and Mary Honor shared an interest in archaeology and enjoyed classical music. They traveled both independently and with groups representing the School of Advanced Research and local museums. Since 1999 they have lived at El Castillo Retirement Residences in Santa Fe and extend to the El Castillo staff heartfelt appreciation for the special care given to Arnie during his last months. Plans are pending for burial at the National Cemetery this spring. Contributions in Arnie’s memory can be made to the charity of your choice.

The West’s oldest newspaper, founded 1849

Putin: Delusional or calculating? I doubt whether Russian President Vladimir Putin is clinically delusional, though German Chancellor Angela Merkel and former U.S. Secretary of State Madeline Albright seemed to have suggested as much during the current Ukraine crisis. It may well Bill Stewart be true, however, Understanding that Putin’s Your World longstanding desire to restore Russia to its former greatness has seriously impaired his judgment. By all accounts, Putin is a very intelligent man, cold and calculating. But those qualities alone, contrary to the views of some Republican leaders, do not necessarily make him a better or stronger leader than President Barack Obama — or Merkel, who is playing a crucial role in this latest standoff between Russia and the West. Putin is an autocrat in the long tradition of Russian autocrats stretching back to the days of the czars. Autocrats do not easily tolerate dissent. It isn’t in their genes, never mind their political and social views. Moreover, they tend to view themselves uncritically and their views as unassailable. Their behavior is reinforced by those around them, few of whom are prepared to tell them the unvarnished truth. There is, of course, scarcely a government in the world in which senior advisers don’t tend to shape their advice to what they know their leaders want to hear. But then, wise leaders know this and generally seek opinions from a broad spectrum of advisers. To a large extent, however, autocrats are self-made prisoners of their system, if only because they are the system. In a crisis, who is there to warn them of the dangers at hand? In a sense, the short-term crisis over Crimea and the longer term crisis over Ukraine might well be the last gasp of the Cold War and its aftermath. Millions of Ukrainians grew up in the days of the Soviet Union

The crisis over Ukraine might well be the last gasp of the Cold War. and have vivid memories of that close connection. Eastern Ukraine became an industrial powerhouse after World War II, home to some of the most advanced industries in the Soviet Union, while the rest of Ukraine became once again what it had always been, one of the world’s major grain exporters and a breadbasket for Russia and much of Europe. The loss of Ukraine following the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s was a body blow to Russia, underscoring why Putin has described the collapse of the Soviet Union as the greatest catastrophe of the 20th century. Then, too, he had been a KGB agent in Germany, working to preserve, if not extend Soviet influence in the world. This was part of his lifeblood. He has not forgotten. Putin is not so foolish as to believe he can recreate the Soviet Union. But he does want to rebuild Russian power, prestige and influence. To that end, his Eurasian cooperation plan has so far won back Kazakhstan into closer economic union and may well succeed with Kyr-

gyzstan. Armenia is leaning in that direction, as well. But the greatest prize of all is Ukraine, with its 45 million people, its strong industrial base along the Russian border, its vast grain exports and the site of a number of important gas and oil pipelines that are crucial to the economies of much of Western Europe, especially Germany, which gets some 40 percent of its energy supplies from Russia. This is why Merkel is so crucial in the current crisis. In a sense, she is as important to Putin as he is to her. Moreover, she speaks fluent Russian, and he is comfortable with German. That counts. Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia are all part of what Russians call “the near abroad.” Russians who grew up in the Soviet Union, as did Putin, regard these countries not only as former members of the Soviet Union but as once part of Russia itself. When former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych suddenly turned away from a closer connection with the European Union to a closer one with Russia, Putin saw this as a natural progression of events, engineered by himself, in which countries with close cultural and historic connections with Russia were moving back into Moscow’s orbit. The revolution that threw out Yanukovych was a major blow to Putin’s plan to re-establish Russian dominance in East-

ern Europe. Because he is paranoid about the West, he undoubtedly sees a Western hand in the events. This could not be allowed to stand, especially if a new government in Kiev meddled with Russia’s Black Sea fleet based in Sebastopol, in the Crimea. Thus, we have the Crimean crisis, which has been so brutally yet cleverly engineered by Putin. Make no mistake, Crimea is now in Russian hands. Did thousands of Russian troops cross the border, or were they already stationed in Sabastapol in accordance with the Russian/Ukrainian treaty? That is not exactly clear. And if the new Crimean government goes ahead with a referendum March 16 to decide if Crimea is part of Russia once again, what do we do then? Because the outcome of that referendum is assured. Putin may well be intelligent, cold and calculating. But delusional? That seems doubtful. He has won, so far, in Crimea but not yet in the rest of Ukraine. The U.S. is successfully rallying the world against Putin’s action but giving him plenty of room to withdraw. So far, he has not taken the bait. In the meantime, the crisis continues. Bill Stewart writes about current affairs from Santa Fe. He is a former U.S. Foreign Service officer and was a correspondent for Time magazine.


Study group will improve health care



ecently, the Santa Fe City Council advanced an idea to reality and established the initial infrastructure to open a discussion among all stakeholders, including consumers, about acute health care provided by our area hospital and the integration of general health care policy in our community. It is called the Community Hospital and Health Care Study Group. The study group is fashioned after a similar, successful and ongoing effort in the greater Taos community. As someone who has advocated this approach, I want to send an enthusiastic “thank you” to the entire City Council and the mayor for their deliberations, as contentious and uncomfortable as the discussion seemed at times, from which a compromise with potential was crafted and unanimously supported in the end. I also want to thank Dave Delgado, chairman of the Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center Board of Directors, for offering to make the hospitalist doctors available in the discussions and forums as we go forward.

But I want to thank two people in particular: Councilor Patti Bushee and Mayor David Coss. It is no secret that these two officials have been allies and adversaries over the years. From that cooperation and even contention has come good public policy. The mayor was asked by those of us advocating this approach to broker a compromise that contained the best aspects of competing resolutions. I commend him for helping us get there. Additionally, I think it is important to state this about Bushee. Last spring, when the nurses and other support staff raised concerns about staffing at our local hospital, there were only three elected politicians who reached out and asked how they could help. The three represented three levels of our government here in Santa Fe: Councilor Bushee, state Rep. Lucky Varela and U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján. Each of these elected officials delivered by action, not just words, on behalf of the community in different ways throughout this period. We thank them for their

behind-the-scenes as well as public support to move us to a better place. But only one of them has been under attack: Bushee. The charge has been that she cannot get along with the other councilors. Her style is too provocative. I have to ask the question: What is wrong with advancing and discussing passionate, provocative ideas and moving on to good public policy as a result of all that discussion? We are moving ahead on the establishment of the Community Hospital and Health Care Study Group because Councilor Bushee saw fit to ask about what we were doing in Taos and dared to advance the concept here. That is how good policy is established. To Councilor Bushee, thanks for daring to be criticized and advancing this very important idea of community participation in the development of good health policy. Bruce Wetherbee is a former president of the Northern New Mexico Central Labor Council.


acebook has decided it was not good for business to become a conduit for illegal gun sales. From now on, it will monitor and limit gun-sale postings to discourage criminal activity. It’s a smart move that the company should have made months ago. Moms Demand Action, an advocacy group founded after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting (and supported by Michael R. Bloomberg, founder and majority owner of Bloomberg News parent Bloomberg LP), began pressing Facebook last year to adopt basic safeguards to block illegal gun sales that users were advertising on the site. Given the resistance the company put up, you’d have thought the moms were asking its employees to ditch their hoodies for suits. Under the company’s new rules, members can still post information about guns for sale, but Facebook will take down any offers that don’t include a background check. Users younger than 18 will be blocked from viewing posts from unlicensed dealers, and all users will be allowed to flag posts that suggest criminal activity. The Internet has become a 24/7 gun show, where unlicensed dealers offer firearms to customers who could not pass a federal background check. According to a 2011 investigation by Mayors Against Illegal Guns (co-founded by Michael Bloomberg), 1 in 30 buyers on, a major online sales forum, had a criminal record barring them from owning a gun. If 1 in 30 of your customers is acting illegally, that should be a major concern for your business. But not for unlicensed gun sellers, who — thanks to a feckless Congress and a timid White House — act with virtual impunity. Armslist and similar websites have flatly refused to take basic steps to prevent illegal activity. Facebook initially resisted, too, protesting for months that it is not an e-commerce site and does not permit paid advertising of gun sales. True enough. But it was nevertheless facilitating an underground market that allows dangerous people — as well as troubled teenagers — easy access to guns. In October, a 15-year-old was arrested in Kentucky for carrying to school a loaded 9 mm handgun, which he had bought through a man he met on Facebook. Two weeks ago, a felon in Iowa was arrested for attempting to trade an AR-15 military-style rifle for a handgun on Facebook. The new rules are hardly an intrusion into Facebook’s business. The website already polices other kinds of illegal and dangerous activity, including hate speech, bullying and graphically violent content. And sites such as Google+ and Craigslist had already taken steps to prevent illegal gun activity on their sites. Social media didn’t create the online illegal gun market, but by ignoring it, Facebook was feeding it and making a growing public safety problem worse.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: March 8, 1914: Superintendent [J.V.] Conway suggests that persons who wish to give practical aid to the cause of education in this city may do so by furnishing a few pairs of shoes for small boys between the ages of 9 and 12 in the school in Ward 2. Mr. Conway shouldn’t have to make this suggestion twice. In education, as in other things, we should begin at the bottom. If a boy has holes in his shoes, he is apt to absorb readin’ ‘ritin’ and ‘rithmetic at the top and then allow it to percolate out at the bottom through the apertures in his footgear. March 8, 1964: Babies appear to be coming back into style in New Mexico. Proof of this is in the monthly statistical report of the state Health Department. The report released Saturday showed that during January 1964, there were 2,591 births in New Mexico families. This is an increase of 113 over the births reported in January 1963. March 8, 1989: Rep. Ray Vargas said his attempt to restructure New Mexico’s Sentencing Guidelines Commission has brought him a death threat from someone opposed to his effort.

fired-up Demonettes take out Lady Pirates SFHS advances to quarterfinal against Roswell By Edmundo Carrillo The New Mexican


ne may not think that the No. 2 Santa Fe High girls basketball team needed bulletin board material for its game with No. 15 SFHS 67 Grants in the first Grants 45 round of the Class AAAA State Girls Basketball Tournament on Friday, but the Demonettes got it anyway. Before Santa Fe High dismantled the Lady Pirates 67-45 in Toby Roybal Memorial Gymnasium to advance to the quarterfinal in The Pit against No. 7 Roswell on Tuesday, the Demonettes saw something that made them angry. Santa Fe High head coach Elmer Chavez showed a Grants newspaper article saying that Sabrina Lozada-Cabbage was a one-woman show for the Demonettes. He was hoping it would ignite a fire. It did. “He came to me and Jackie [Martinez] and the rest of the players and he was like ‘Does this piss you guys off, because I know it would if I was the player?’ ” Santa Fe High junior Kayla Herrera said. “It revved everybody else up. They came in thinking we had one player, and we showed them wrong.

Capital clings to tourney dreams By James Barron The New Mexican

Three weeks ago, Capital’s state boys basketball tournament dreams were still alive, but it was hard to find a pulse. The Jaguars were 6-15 overall and just 2-3 in District 2AAAA play, and the talk at the time was about crosstown rival Santa Fe High and its improbable run to the top of the district standings. With the season reaching a crucial stage, Capital head coach Ben Gomez and his staff found a chord that struck with the Jaguars. “They pretty much told us there is a chance we won’t make it to state,” said Jordan Burks, Capital’s senior post. “I know as a senior, I wanted to get to state. I wanted one more game, if not more.” A subsequent four-game winning streak saved the season, and kept a postseason streak alive for the program. The Jaguars nabbed the 15th seed in the state tournament, making it 13 consecutive years Capital (10-16) has made an appearance. It will try to extend another streak — four straight years of reaching the AAAA quarterfinals — when it heads to Los Lunas on Saturday to face the secondseeded Tigers at 7 p.m. It is the second straight

year Los Lunas (22-5) faces the Jaguars as well as facing a Santa Fe school in the opening round. The Tigers beat Santa Fe High 76-68 in 2013. They turned around and beat Capital 60-23 in the AAAA quarterfinals the following week. Perseverance and progress marked the rapid change in the Jaguars’ fortune, and it will take more of that to pull off the upset. While it seemed that Capital would flounder through a season of transition under the return of former head coach Ben Gomez in his first season, the man who led Capital to the school’s line state championship in any sport (in 2004) had not given up yet. The winning streak that led the Jaguars to a second-place finish in the district and a subsequent appearance in the 2AAAA tournament championship game was proof of his belief in his team. “It’s just the growth they have shown, they are starting to believe in themselves and in their teammates,” Gomez said. “They are starting to share the ball, and it’s a growth that has just been fun to watch.” But have the Jaguars grown enough to put a bit of a scare

can squeeze into The Pit’s abbreviated seating configuration that leaves the south end clear for staging purposes. The floor is covered with nearly two feet of dirt. The rest is an erector set of scaffolding and steel cages that make up the bucking chutes. Having never seen bull riding outside of the Rodeo de Santa Fe, I’d been ushered into the front row right around midcourt at the bottom of the chairback section. Seconds later, fireworks started launching from the staging area and gunpowder spelling out the the tour’s initials in the dirt were ignited; all of it coinciding with blaring music and a light show for the ages.

shoved into a phone booth, then lit on fire with a motorcycle revving full throttle right next to it. That’s kind of how the Ty Murray Invite feels in The Pit. But that’s when the fun really started. Within seconds of settling in, the first bull came ripping out of the chute and crashed into the railing just a couple feet from us. The collision sent a cloud of dust and animal spittle flying in our direction. Just like that the entire spectacle was over, its imagery being replayed on a giant video screen at the south end. All the while, the bull sprinted out of the riding area, through the chutes and up the ramp toward the innards of the building and the freedom of the hold-

ing pen in the parking lot. That scenario played itself out over and over again until every name was called, every rider was done. Having seen more basketball in that facility than I care to admit, it was a wild and undeniably stimulating experience. Easily the most visually stunning athletic event I had ever seen — something only rivaled by a NASCAR event. Or so I can imagine. So when the Ty Murray Invite rolls around again in two weeks, maybe it’s worth a firsthand peek. Yes, it’s in the middle of what will be the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament, but it’s an event you will never forget. I know I never will.

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. Taylor described one occasion in which Pistorius fired his gun out of a sunroof soon after a policeman stopped their car for speeding. She also mentioned another incident in which she and Pistorius were followed by a car as he drove home. “When we arrived at his estate, he jumped out of the car with his gun and held it to someone’s window, and then they drove away,” Taylor said. Defense lawyer Barry Roux raised the possibility that Pistorius was trying to protect Taylor, though she said did not feel threatened. Taylor also described problems in her relationship with Pistorius, the first amputee to run in the Olympics. “He cheated on me with Reeva Steenkamp,” Taylor said. The court later adjourned briefly after Taylor broke down in tears while describing how Pistorius had earlier cheated on her with a different woman, and then again when she cried while discussing her problems with him.

The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Joey Logano believes two facts are abundantly clear after he emerged from the organized chaos of NASCAR’s first threeround knockout qualifying session Friday with the pole position at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This new qualifying system is a whole lot more interesting than the prior system. And nobody is quite sure what they’re doing yet. “It gets crazy out there,” said Logano, who earned his eighth career pole. “I think it’s way cooler than old-style qualifying, don’t get me wrong. It’s awesome. … We’re all learning right now. It’s all new to us, but we’re having fun with it. I enjoy it. I think it’s cool.” The Penske Ford team has figured it out better than most. Logano won the pole for Sunday’s Las Vegas race with a qualifying lap at a track-record 193.28 mph, and he’ll start on the front row next to teammate Brad Keselowski, who came in second at 193.099. The Penske drivers swept the top two spots for the second straight race, reversing their tworound qualifying finish in Phoenix a week ago. Clint Bowyer finished third, with Austin Dillon in fourth and Jimmie Johnson in fifth. NASCAR added the knockout system to goose interest in a dull weekly ritual, and it’s working. The teams are challenged by multiple chances to hit top speed. The drivers are both worried about the danger and excited by the challenge. And fans seem quite intrigued, judging by the larger-than-normal crowd in the Speedway stands. “That’s the whole point of this,” Logano said of the fan turnout. “A lot more preparation goes into it, a lot more communication between myself, my spotter, my crew chief. Not really about our race car, but how are we going to go out there, and what’s our game plan? Every time we’ve had a game plan going into it, it’s changed so far. At least we’re pulling audibles and they’re working.”

Drivers are understandably concerned by the huge speed disparities on the track during the qualifying sessions. While some drivers were going about 30 mph to cool their engines, others were ripping right past them about 150 mph faster, resulting in a handful of near-misses. Brian Vickers even called Friday’s session “the most dangerous thing I’ve ever done in a race car.” Bowyer echoed the mix of excitement and concern. “Our normal deal is to be scared once a weekend,” Bowyer said of the previous one-lap qualifying scheme. “Three times is a lot to ask out of us. You know, it is really exciting.” Logano is expecting NASCAR to eventually allow teams to use portable cool-down units instead of taking those dangerously slow cooldown laps. As for the strategic decisions necessary to turn the best laps in the allotted time, everybody is still working on it. “So much more goes into qualifying,” Logano said. “To me, it’s even more special to get a pole.” As if the knockout style wasn’t exciting enough, the majority of the drivers surpassed the previous track speed record during qualifying. Bowyer and Keselowski expect track speed records to fall all season under the cars’ new setups.


Saturday, March 8, 2014 THE NEW MEXICAN


Española Valley girls beat Belen

The New Mexican

Balanced scoring, a strong second half and a concerted effort against Belen’s top player all helped the Española Valley girls basketball team claim a Española 54 54-42 victory in Friday Belen 42 night’s opening round of the Class AAAA State Basketball Tournament. Playing at home as the No. 5 seed, the Lady Sundevils turned a four-point halftime lead into a 39-30 advantage heading into the fourth quarter when they began pressuring Belen point guard Mariah Forde. The 5-foot-11 junior came into the game averaging 16 points and 11 rebounds. She finished with 12 points. “I’ve coached against her in AAU so I knew she was too good of a player to stop completely,” said Española head coach Ray Romero. Ashlynn Trujillo and Kayla Salazar led the Lady Sundevils (22-7) with 11 points apiece. Alexis Lovato had 10 while Kayla Romero had nine and Kaitlyn Romero eight.

Española moves on to face No. 4 Gallup in the quarterfinals in The Pit. CLASS AAA PORTAlES 63, SANTA FE INdIAN SCHOOl 60 In Portales, the 14th-seeded Lady Braves (10-19) nearly pulled off the biggest upset of the tournament before fading in the closing moments against the third-seeded Rams (22-5). Trailing by as many as 13 points in the first half, SFIS rallied into the lead in the fourth quarter. The Lady Braves outscored Portales 22-12 in the third quarter despite an imbalance of opportunities at the free throw line. Lady Braves head coach Jo Jo Valdez said that was one of the big differences in the game — that, and the near-perfect play of SFIS guard Kayla Joe. She had a gamehigh 32 points as her team fell behind 20-7 after the first quarter but managed to stay within 13 at halftime. CLASS AA TEXICO 63, SANTA FE PREPARATORY 31 In Texico, the top-seeded Lady Wolver-

Continued from Page B-1 Everybody put in what they had to do tonight.” Lozada-Cabbage still led the Demonettes with 21 points, but where Santa Fe High really shined was on the defensive end. The Lady Pirates kept things close, down 18-10 at the end of the first quarter, but they were kept to seven points in the second quarter and were trailing 32-17 at halftime. In the second half, the Demonettes never gave up their double-digit lead and led by as many as 23 points in the fourth quarter. Grants gave Santa Fe High fits very early in the game, but some stout defense changed that. “I thought they were really

tough early,” Chavez said. “We started getting on the ball and our defense picked up, and once our defense picked up, I thought we were in great shape.” The Lady Pirates were hanging on as they were down 12-8 at one point in the first quarter, but missed shots and a couple of bad passes led to their downfall. “I thought we hurt ourselves by missing some easy opportunities and layups, then we had some uncharacteristic turnovers on some simple passes that put us in a hole,” Grants head coach Bill McLaughlin said. “You can’t get behind on a good team like that. They’ll bury you, and that’s what they did. They took advantage of our mistakes and put us away.”

MORA 53, TOHATCHI 38 In Mora, the big three of Destiny Pacheco, Gerty Herrera and Brianna Pacheco combined for 43 of the Rangerettes’ points in a tough win over the visiting Lady Cougars. The 3-seed, Mora (23-3) led 25-21 at halftime but used a 13-8 run in the third quarter to open some breathing room. “Tohatchi’s a tough team; all those teams from that district up there in the northwest district are good,” said Mark Cassidy, Rangerettes head coach. “We knew it wouldn’t be easy. Those girls are battle tested and we knew we had to earn this.” Mora will play No. 6 Hatch Valley in Tuesday’s quarterfinals in Rio Rancho.

The Demonettes easily put away the Lady Pirates, but even with the added fuel, they still knew not to overlook Grants. Santa Fe High has had its sights set on the state championship ever since it lost to Roswell in double overtime of last year’s semifinals, so getting to this year’s championship game is a top priority. “Don’t ever underestimate a team, no matter what they’re ranked, because anything can happen,” Herrera said. “We didn’t want to be one of those teams to be sent home early. We felt it last year, and we weren’t going to let it happen to us this year.” Now the Demonettes will have a chance at revenge when they face the Lady Coyotes

Veronica Dominguez drained a 3 with 3:45 in the second quarter. However, that was one of just two baskets they made over the final 6:45 of the half, as the Lady Horsemen went on a 15-5 run to take a 26-23 halftime lead when Cristiana Gabaldon hit a corner 3 at the buzzer. “We had a good first quarter and came out strong,” said Ron Drake, Pojoaque head coach. “The second quarter was just the opposite. It’s hard fighting back then.” Pojoaque wasn’t helped by the absence of Natalie Martinez, who was not with the team for the game, and Miranda Martinez, who broke a finger on her left hand in February. That left seniors Leslie Gutier-

rez and Gabby Gonzales plus sophomore Aaliya Casados to pick up the slack. Casados led the way with 17 points, but Gutierrez and Gonzales battled foul trouble in the first half and sat for much of the second quarter. Gonzales had eight points, and Gutierrez six. What hurt the Elkettes even more, though, was the defensive adjustment by the Lady Horsemen to work harder through screens designed to spring Pojoaque’s shooters open. St. Michael’s clamped down on the perimeter and the Elkettes were just 2-for-10 from the field in the second half. Drake felt his team’s penchant for settling on jumpers hurt it when those shots

next week. Roswell doesn’t appear to be as good as it was last year, but Chavez knows overlooking a team can send you home early. “At this time, anybody we play is going to be good,” Chavez said. “We have to be ready to play and ready to take care of business.” For the players, however, this game is personal. Santa Fe High has been looking forward to it since that double overtime loss a year ago. “We want revenge,” Herrera said. “We don’t want to be sent home early, especially by the team that sent us home last year.” It looks like they don’t need any more bulletin board material for this game.

ines had little trouble advancing into next week’s state quarterfinals. Brianna Reyna led Texico with a gamehigh 20 points as the Lady Wolverines (18-7) never trailed. They opened a commanding 42-15 lead at halftime and had a 39-point lead entering the fourth quarter. “Texico is pretty much a top-notch team,” said Prep head coach Anika Amon. “They’re not No. 1 for nothing, that’s for sure.” Alexis Mundt had a team-high 14 points for Prep (16-11). Joy Maran added 10.

weren’t there. “All year, we’ve been wanting to drive,” Drake said. “We haven’t. A couple of people could. We need everybody to drive, though.” If it wasn’t for a 14-for-20 performance from the free-throw line in the second half, the margin would have been greater. As it was, it helped the Elkettes get to within 42-36 when Casados drained two free throws with 4:20 left, but no closer until Amber Sky Lujan’s three-point play with :11 left completed the scoring. Pojoaque has an offseason to find the answers to its questions, but the Lady Horsemen know their answers. Now, it’s about passing the tests.

Capital: Jags prepare for Los Lunas’ speed Continued from Page B-1 into the No. 2 Tigers, who have won 12 straight games — all in District 6AAAA play? Los Lunas has one of the state’s best one-two punches in Jacob Holland and Chris Sanchez, who combine to average 42.7 points per game. Sanchez is one of the fastest guards in the state, while Holland’s athleticism is something the Jaguars haven’t seen since the

nondistrict season. Burks said the key to properly defending Holland comes down to the post players’ feet. “We have to move our feet. We can’t stay flat-footed,” Burks said. Several of the Jaguars remember playing the Tigers last year, and they remember Los Lunas blowing Capital away with its speed. Holland and Sanchez were a major part of that, and it’s something for

which the Jaguars have spent the past week doing their best to prepare. “We’ve been running a lot this week, to get ready for the game they try to run,” Capital senior wing Ivan Olivas said. “And then we just run our thing on offense.” The Jaguars have made their biggest gains on offense. They averaged 52 points per game in the 10 2AAAA games, compared to the average of 42.3 in

nondistrict play. Capital has moved away from the team that was a half-second hesitant and reactive during the nondistrict season and become much more confident in Gomez’s system. “Now that we know the offense, we know what to do,” Olivas said. “We just need to execute what we have to do.” That could be the difference between the Jaguars achieving their dream, and keeping it alive for one more week.

A day of survival, No. 2 Notre Dame women beat FSU frustration at Doral The Associated Press

By Doug Ferguson The Associated Press

DORAL, Fla. — The new Doral in raging wind looked a lot like an old U.S. Open on Friday. Matt Kuchar played out of the rough to tap-in range for birdie on the 18th hole for a 2-over 74 that allowed him to join an exclusive group at the Cadillac Championship — one of only four survivors to par. The Blue Monster gobbled up just about everyone else. Dustin Johnson bogeyed three of his last six holes for a 74. Patrick Reed made only two birdies in his round of 75. Hunter Mahan atoned for a triple bogey with a 4-iron into 5 feet for eagle on the eighth hole, giving him a 74. They joined Kuchar atop the leaderboard at 1-under 143. “I felt stressed all day, because I knew every shot had ‘big penalty’ written all over it,” Mahan said. “It was a really tough day. There wasn’t an easy shot out there. One of those rounds where it could go south pretty fast, so you’ve got to grind it out and find a way to get a number up there and get to the weekend.” Only three players broke par in the second round. No one shot in the 60s. The average score was a fraction under 76. “I don’t think I’ve played in conditions this difficult in the U.S.,” Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland said after a 71 that left him one shot behind. “It’s an Open Championship day. It’s a real Friday afternoon at St. Andrews in 2010 before they called it. It was hard out there — really, really hard.” Rory McIlroy (74), Francesco Molinari (75) and Jamie Donaldson of Wales (70) also were one behind at even-par 144. Tiger Woods hit three balls in the water and scraped out a 73, thanks in part to a 90-foot birdie putt on the par-3 fourth hole. Phil Mickelson made backto-back double bogeys, and then laid on his back along the bank of the fourth tee during a long wait. He got up, hit into the

It was hard out there — really, really hard.” Graeme McDowell water and made another double bogey. Lefty shot 75. Both were still in the mix, only six shots behind. “It’s a tough golf course as it is,” Reed said. “And with how hard the wind is blowing, it made it even tougher. Almost felt like we were playing at a major today.” At times, it looked even worse. Fist pumps were replaced by players stretching out their arm to take a penalty drop from the water — 113 balls in the water, which is everywhere on the course that Gil Hanse redesigned under the direction of new owner Donald Trump. Trump described it as bold. It turned out to be brutal. And just like a U.S. Open, there were plenty of complaints. The greens were always going to be firm because the course was built in under a year. There was always going to be concern about the sharp edges of fairways and greens that sent balls down the bank and into the water. Throw in gusts that topped 30 mph, and any score was possible on any hole. “The setup is horrendous,” Webb Simpson said after a 78 that included a bunker shot that went onto and over the seventh green and into the water. “Even if we had a 10 mph wind, it still would have been bad. I played terrible. I want to get that out there. But when you have conditions like this, and a setup like this, so much luck comes into play.” The forecast is for less wind on the weekend, and surely a sigh of relief from the players. And this World Golf Championship is wide open. “We’ve all got a shot at it now,” Woods said. “No one is going anywhere.”

Lobos: Both teams dominate MWC Continued from Page B-1

26 points with nine rebounds against an SDSU front line that could do little to stop him. He sparked a 21-2 run in the second half as the Lobos opened a commanding 24-point lead. “Last time we got them we got them on a good night for us,” Bairstow said. “I’m sure it will be a different feel in their place.” That game also featured just nine combined free throw attempts all night. Neal expects things to be different. So, too, will be the environment. The teams had to be separated during the postgame handshake, prompting at least one UNM fan to throw a cup of ice at San Diego State’s players as they walked off The Pit floor. “I know our crowd is going to be great [Saturday],” Thames said. “It’s going to be sold out, it’s going to be loud, so it’s going to be good.” While Neal expects his veteran team to maintain its championship edge, Fisher is focused more on finding an answer for UNM’s post duo of Bairstow and 7-foot center Alex Kirk. “We’ve got to make sure we don’t allow the ball to come in at ease to the low post,” he said. “They got maybe a few more touches in there, right in the sweet spot, two feet in the paint, than normal, but they’re big and they’re good and they throw the ball inside. We have to say, ‘How do we make it harder for them to throw it in?’ But maybe the most important thing is we can’t give them easy baskets.” Fisher said revenge is the last thing on the Aztecs’ minds. “We know we got throttled at their building,” he said. “We’ve got so many reasons why we will be ready to play [Saturday] and the No. 1 is we’re playing for the outright conference championship against another team doing the same thing.”

“It’s fitting that the two best teams are playing where one will win the conference championship,” SDSU head coach Steve Fisher said. “That’s what we’ve got, the two best teams in league over an 18-game schedule, which is as taxing as it can be, in all sorts of environments, home and away, and all sorts of things that factor into a long season, that are both playing to win the conference championship.” New Mexico and San Diego State have dominated the league the last five seasons. The Lobos won outright or shared league titles in 2009, 2010, 2012 and again last season, while the Aztecs have won or shared banners in 2011 and 2012. UNM is the only school to win the regular season title outright since 2008, having done so in 2010 and again last season. New Mexico has also won the conference tournament each of the last two years, eliminating the Aztecs both times. That includes the title game two seasons ago. SDSU won the tournament in 2010 and 2011. “The incentive and motivation is we want to win a conference championship,” Fisher said. “We want to hang a banner. This game is a game we have to win in order to do that.” The game also could help decide whether Thames or UNM power forward Cameron Bairstow, the MWC’s leading scorer and undoubtedly its most improved player this season, wins the league’s player of the year award. “It’s Cam’s, he deserves it,” said Lobos senior guard Kendall Williams, last year’s winner of the award. “I’ve gotten a lot of accolades in my career but it’s about the team, just like it is for Cam. He’s done everything he has to to win it this year.” The Associated Press contributed Bairstow dominated the Aztecs last time around, scoring to this report.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Jewell Loyd scored 17 points to lead No. 2 Notre Dame past Florida State 83-57 2 N. Dame 83 on Friday in its Atlantic Fla. State 57 Coast Conference tournament debut.

JJaret asked Alexander about his future plans. Read Alexander’s goals, and then A write down your own.

© 2014 by Vicki Whiting, Editor Jeff Schinkel, Graphics Vol. 30, No. 12

• Internships I with different c chefs, cooking and getting a idea what it is like in the an rrestaurant business. •P Publish a cookbook for other kkids to use to cook. (He is w working on that now.) MasterChef Junior winner Alexander Weiss with judges Joe Bastianich, Gordon Ramsay and Graham Elliot.

Q: When did you begin cooking? A: I started baking w with my mom when I was about 3 or 4. I baked things like cupcakes and cookies with her. As I got older, around the age of 10, I started watching my dad cook savory food. I wanted to try things and get in the kitchen with him.

Q: How did you prepare for the show? A: Before I even got the news that I was going on the show, I acted like I was already selected. I started practicing super technical things like searing tuna, making profiteroles and éclairs.

Q: How did you get on the show? A: My school sent an email saying anyone with a real passion for cooking could go and audition in New York City for the MasterChef Junior show. First, I had a phone interview, and then a 30 minute on-camera cooking demo. Last, there was an interview/audition. They asked me to cook an egg, cut a vegetable, and measure some water, so that was really simple.

• Attend A culinary school and tthen be head chef at my own rrestaurant. • Have H my own restaurant ccooking modern Italian food – aalmost like Drago Centro cuisine (the restaurant the young chefs took over on MasterChef Junior).

Q: What was the time frame from the start of the show until they announced the winner? A: It all took less than a month.

Q: Did you stay in a hotel while taping the show?

A: Only one of my parents could come out to Los Angeles with me, so my mom came out with me for the beginning of the show. Since I stayed in the competition for a long time, my dad came out later. We were not allowed to leave the hotel until one of the show’s crew members came to get us. It was fun, a bit claustrophobic at times, having to stay in a hotel room for so long.

Q: What is something people don’t know about the show that would be surprising?

A: I think what would surprise you is that back at the hotel, we were all super nice to each other. We could completely drop the competition. We were all really good friends and would go down to the pool and hang around.

Alexander adds cheese to his pasta during the competition.

Write your goals below. Show them the to a parent and talk about what you’d need to do to make them happen.

Austin American-Statesman


USTIN, Texas — The national obsession with all things digital, from smartphones to online games, has some health experts worried about kids today — especially their brains. The 2-year-old who can nimbly use an iPad or kill a gazillion monsters playing a video game isn’t necessarily a genius, says Dr. Manfred Spitzer, a neuroscientist and psychiatrist. That child could be en route to trouble with memory and thinking, a condition Spitzer and others call “digital dementia.” “When you use the computer, you outsource your mental activity,” Spitzer said in a talk last week at St. Edward’s University. While computers can be fine tools for adults who are using their minds all day long, they’re poison for kids, he said. Spitzer is author of the 2012 book Digital Dementia: What We and Our Children Are Doing to Our Minds. Spitzer, medical director of the Psychiatric University Hospital in Ulm, Germany, is among those sounding an alarm on screen use by children. Although some say those fears are overblown, the American Academy of Pediatrics also has raised concerns. In 2011, it urged no TV for those younger than 2. The academy said that “unstructured playtime is critical to learning problemsolving skills and fostering creativity.” It also said, “Media use has been associated with obesity, sleep issues, aggressive behav-

Help name mascot for the Rail Runner The Rio Metro Regional Transit District is planning to unveil a new roadrunner mascot for its commuter train, the Rail Runner Express, and the agency is asking the public to help name the bird in a contest that culminates with the unveiling during an Isotopes game May 2 in Albuquerque. Dewey Cave, executive director of the Mid-Region Council of Governments, said the idea of the mascot is to promote the family-friendly Rail Runner environment onboard mascot the train. “We plan to make this new mascot a fixture in our community that will help us promote rail safety and the benefits of our commuter rail system,” Cave said in a news release. The release says the roadrunner, the official state bird of New Mexico, reflects the existing brand of the Rail Runner Express. The mascot will make several appearances at Isotopes games throughout the 2014 season. In addition, it will occasionally greet passengers on select trains and make appearances at community events and schools, the news release says. Contest submissions will be accepted through March 16. Contest finalists will be invited to attend the Isotopes game May 2, where the Rail Runner mascot will make its first appearance. The contest winner will receive a prize package, including train tickets and Isotopes tickets.

iors, and attention issues in preschool- and school-aged children.” Parents should limit screen time for all children of all ages to two hours a day and set “screen-free zones,” including bedrooms, the academy says. The term “digital dementia” was coined a few years ago in South Korea, home to one of the highest digital-using populations, Spitzer said. Doctors reported seeing young patients with memory and cognitive problems, conditions more commonly linked to brain injuries. Many children don’t memorize anything because they can Google it, Spitzer said. He argues that multitasking and clicking around are distracting, contribute to low attention and impair learning. “The more you train kids with computer games, the more attention deficit you get,” he said. Games also can be addictive, he said. Warren Spector, director of the DeniusSams Gaming Academy at the University of Texas, said in an email that Spitzer’s arguments are the same ones social critics and researchers made about movies, TV, comic books and rock ‘n’ roll. ”Today, all of those media are widely accepted as legitimate art forms,” Spector wrote in an email. “They’re studied in universities. And their effects on children and adults are considered ambiguous, at most. I have no doubt the same will happen for video games over time. Some other new, poorly understood medium will come along to take their place as the harbinger of civilization’s end.” Spitzer says the minimum age for media consumption should be between 15 and

18. He sees kids with high frustration and stunted social skills. “The more time you spend with screen media … the less your social skills will be,” Spitzer said. Young people look at their smartphones about 150 times a day, he said. He believes frequent screen use raises stress and anxiety in all ages. He says it’s better to read a newspaper in print because the reader retains more and isn’t captive to pop-ups and other distractions that encourage the constant clicking around he abhors. Several pediatricians said they share Spitzer’s concerns — to a point. ”It makes sense at the extreme that it would affect memory,” Dr. Stephen Pont, a pediatrician at Dell Children’s Medical Center and medical director for the Austin school district, said of digital media. “We do know it can affect sleep quality.” He allows his two young sons to play online games during long family trips but limits their screen time. ”When you overdo anything there can be negative results,” Pont said. He wants more study on the topic. Dr. Bradley Berg, medical director of pediatrics at Scott & White Hospital-Round Rock, said that he also favors screen limits. Children should spend more time interacting with others and exercising, which boosts brain health, he said. ”If a person is constantly letting a computer think for them or are spending hours surfing the Internet, then they are not using their brain and, hence, their neural pathways are not stimulated,” he wrote in an email. “We know very well that neurons that are not used are pruned away.”

Potty-training takes patience, common sense Question: I’ve been using the method described in your toilet-training book with my 18-month-old daughter, and she’s been doing great during the day. She rarely has an accident. However, I’m still using a diaper at naptime and during the night (waiting for some consistency in dryness before taking that away). Is that correct? The only problem is she’s figured out the routine and now only poops in her diaper when I put her down to sleep. She has not gone poop on the potty during the day for several weeks. Is that cause for concern? Should I take away the diapers totally? I don’t want to create a bad habit. John Answer: You (and your daughter, Rosemond of course) are doing just fine. In fact, Living With you’re both doing great and are living Children proof of the incontrovertible fact that pediatricians (not all, but certainly most) have been giving very bad toilettraining advice for the past 45 years. Specifically, they’ve been promoting the “child-centered” philosophy that has caused toilet training to become such a huge problem during this same time period. They can be forgiven for believing that the pediatrician responsible for cutting this philosophy out of whole cloth knew what he was talking about, but it’s time for them to begin doing major atonement. Keep up the good common sense! And don’t become discouraged, much less anxious, if your daughter has a setback now and then. There will be, as you’ve already discovered, some bumps in the road. In that regard, the fact that she’s waiting until naptime or nighttime to poop is no cause whatsoever for concern. It may take a while — several months, perhaps — but this will eventually resolve itself. In the meantime, celebrate her success and pay little to no attention to her reticence to use the potty for pooping. Having said that, there are some strategies that might move this process along. One especially creative parent folded a diaper in the bowl of the potty and told her child that the doctor had said he should poop in his diaper that way. The child promptly pooped in the diaper-lined potty and continued to do so from that point forward. That’s a testament to thinking outside the box if there ever was one! It’s also interesting to note that prior to the 1960s, when everything parenting in America began to go to Hades in a hand-basket, parents generally poop-trained before they pee-trained. Also, potty seats were attached to the seat on the big toilet, so when a child was on the potty, he couldn’t get off very easily if at all. When a child was on schedule to poop, his parents would put him on the potty and walk off. When the child pooped, he called his parents. They’d come in, help him down and clean him off. In other words, on-the-floor potties are part of the problem because children can get off them at will (but the advantage, of course, is they can also get on them without parent help). The sorta-kinda good news is that newer (but in my estimation, somewhat less effective) versions of the “old” potties can still be had. I found some on, for example. You might want to consider that option. In any case, stay the course. In the final analysis, patience will be the cure.

Dear Annie: My husband and I moved to Florida 30 years ago and raised our children here. Some friends recently retired and moved to our area. Florida is a large state, and we were surprised that both of these couples (who don’t know each other) chose to purchase homes within a 20-mile radius of us. My husband and I are being pressured to resume these friendships, but frankly, we are not interested. When these couples email, I keep making excuses, and I don’t answer the phone when they call. It’s been months, and none of them has figured it out. They persist. One of these women was a childhood friend, but she is boastful and competitive, and her husband is worse. I don’t have it in me to level with them. How can we stop them from calling without creating hurt feelings? — Lynn in Sunny Florida Dear Sunny: Has it occurred to you that these couples may have moved to this location because they thought they had at least one friend in the area? It means they will persist until they develop new friends who occupy their time. If you are likely to run into them at shops and social events, it might be in your best interests to allow a limited friendship so you are on speaking terms. That means, you answer every fifth call or email and arrange a social engagement every few months. As they become more acclimated to their new digs, you can cut back until you reach the amount of contact you can handle. By then, your absence will be less important to them. Dear Annie: My boyfriend will be 67 in two weeks, and for the third year in a row, I will probably watch his heart break because his 90-year-old mother will not acknowledge his birthday. He has done nothing to make

her feel this way. She lives in our city, but he has not seen her in more than three years. I am so afraid she will pass on before they reconcile. What would cause a woman to have no feelings for her own son? — Baffled in Indianapolis Dear Baffled: We don’t know, but if they haven’t seen each other since she was 87, there is a possibility of a decline in her mental faculties. Did she acknowledge his birthday before? Was she OK the last time he saw her? Is there a sibling, relative or friend who could intercede on his behalf? Some children call their parents on their own birthday to thank the parents for giving birth to them. Your boyfriend might try this to see whether it breaks the ice. But if nothing works, do something for his birthday that he enjoys and that will take his mind off of Mom. Dear Annie: You’ve printed a lot of letters about stores carrying larger sizes. I wear a 3X. I live in a rural area, and there are no plussize stores. I would love to drop some pounds, but due to health problems, I can’t walk, and my medications tend to make me gain even though I try to eat very little. I’ve tried online shopping, but the sizes are not standard. I want my local stores to carry my size. I would like to have more than four tops in my weekly rotation and a nightgown that doesn’t make me feel like my grandmother — Trying To Fit Dear Trying: We cannot force the stores near you to carry your size. Your best bet is to shop online. There are many places that carry your size, and if things don’t fit, you can return them. Some trial and error may be necessary, but eventually, you will find an online shop that suits you. Dear Readers: Be sure to set your clocks forward one hour before going to bed tonight.
