Lawyers say release of gov.’s travel documents requires search warrant By Steve Terrell The New Mexican

Cop lease deals show contrasts in city, county rent programs

Michelle Martinez wins game of chance and Española City Council seat

Coin flip decides race

Deputies sign more detailed contracts; commission has more oversight of housing program By Chris Quintana The New Mexican

The city and county of Santa Fe both allow law enforcement officials to live on government-owned property for minimal monthly rates or for free. The difference, according to contracts obtained by The New Mexican, lies in the details of the rental agreements. While county employees who lease public properties sign County Commission-approved contracts that include a specific list of caretaker duties and expectations, the city rental contracts are vague about officers’ requirements and loosely managed. Santa Fe Mayor Javier Gonzales said he may look into the city’s policy after The New Mexican reported that Deputy Chief John Schaerfl lives in his own mobile home at a city park for just $20 a month, despite earning a salary of nearly $99,000 a year. Since initial reports of Schaerfl’s rental deal, the city has released documents showing that two other police officers, both making more than $60,000, are leasing city properties for minimal rates.

U.S. autism estimate rises to 1 in 68 kids By Mike Stobbe

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — The government’s estimate of autism has moved up again to 1 in 68 U.S. children, a 30 percent increase in two years. But health officials say the new number may not mean autism is more common. Much of the increase is believed to be from a cultural and medical shift, with doctors diag-

Birth rate hits a low

WASHINGTON — Senators agreed Thursday to begin debating a bipartisan proposal to renew federal unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless that would allow for retroactive payments to go to more than 2 million Americans whose benefits started expiring in late December. Senators voted 65-34 to proceed to debate on the bill, ensuring it will pass easily at some point next week. All 55 members of the Senate Democratic caucus voted to proceed as well as 10 Republicans.

9 USAF commanders fired in nuke scandal WASHINGTON — The Air Force took the extraordinary step Thursday of firing nine midlevel nuclear commanders and announcing it will discipline dozens of junior officers at a nuclear missile base, responding firmly to an exam-cheating scandal that spanned a far longer period than originally reported. Air Force officials called the discipline unprecedented in the history of America’s intercontinental ballistic missile force. A 10th commander resigned and will retire from the Air Force. In an emotion-charged resignation letter titled “A Lesson to Remember,” Col. Robert Stanley, who commanded the 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom, lamented that the reputation of the ICBM mission was now “tarnished.”

Obama: 6M signed up for health care coverage

Student debt vs. wealth gap By Carolyn Thompson The Associated Press


WASHINGTON — Back on track after a stumbling start, President Barack Obama’s heath care overhaul reached a milestone Thursday, with more than 6 million Americans signed up for coverage through new insurance markets. Like much else about Obama’s health care law, it comes with a caveat: The administration has yet to announce how many consumers actually closed the deal by paying their first month’s premium. Some independent estimates are that as many as 10 percent to 20 percent have not paid, which would bring the total enrollment to between 5 million and 6 million people.

Report clears Christie in payback plot NEW YORK — Lawyers hired by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s administration said Thursday that the governor was not involved in the plot to create a traffic jam last fall, a conclusion that left the lead lawyer defending the integrity of his report, which came ahead of the results of separate and ongoing federal and legislative investigations. The taxpayer-funded report released by former federal prosecutor Randy Mastro relied on interviews with Christie and other officials in his administration — who were not under oath — and 250,000 documents. The investigation concluded Christie had no knowledge beforehand of lane closings Sept. 9-12 near the George Washington Bridge between New Jersey and New York that caused four days of massive gridlock in the community of Fort Lee.

very payment toward their student loans is $900 Dr. Nida Degesys and her husband aren’t putting in their retirement savings account. They believe they’ll eventually climb from debt and begin using their earnings to build assets rather than fill holes. But, like the roughly 37 million others in the U.S. saddled with $1 trillion in student debt, they may never catch up with wealthy peers who began life after college free from the burden. The disparity, experts say, is contributing to the widening of the gap between rich and everyone else in the country. “If you graduate with a B.A. or doctorate and you get the same job at the same place, you make the same amount of money,” said William Elliott III, director of the Assets and Education Initiative at the University of Kansas. “But that money will actually mean less to you in the sense of accumulating assets in the long term.” Graduates who can immediately begin building equity in housing or stocks and bonds get more time to see their investments grow, while indebted graduates spend years paying principal and interest on loans. The standard student loan repayment schedule is 10 years but can be much longer. The median 2009 net worth for a household without outstanding student debt was $117,700, nearly three times the $42,800 worth in a household with outstanding student debt, according to a report co-written by Elliott last November.

About 40 percent of households led by someone 35 or younger have student loan debt, a 2012 Pew Research Center analysis of government data found. Allen Aston is one of the lucky ones, having landed a full academic and financial-need scholarship at Ohio State University. The 22-year-old software engineer from Columbus estimates it let him avoid about $100,000 in debt. Without loans to repay, Aston is already contributing 6 percent of his salary to a retirement fund that is matched in part by his employer and doesn’t have the same financial concerns his friends do. “I’m making the same money as them, but they have student loans they’re paying back that I don’t. So, it definitely seems noticeable,” he said. Student debt is the only kind of household debt that rose through the Great Recession and now totals more than either credit card or auto loan debt, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Both the number of borrowers and amount borrowed ballooned by 70 percent from 2004 to 2012. Of the nearly 20 million Americans who attend college each year, about 12 million borrow, according to the Almanac of Higher Education. Estimates show that the average four-year graduate accumulates $26,000 to $29,000 in loans, and some leave college with six figures worth of debt. The increases have been driven in part by rising tuition. Compounding the problem has been a trend toward merit-based, rather than need-based, grants

as institutions seek to attract the higher-achieving students who will boost their standings. But with elected officials from President Barack Obama on down now talking about the wealth gap as an urgent public problem, a more complete picture seems to be emerging, Targeting the soaring cost of higher education, Obama in August proposed the most sweeping changes to the federal student aid program in decades. His plan would link federal money to new college ratings and reward schools if they help low-income students, keep costs low and have large numbers of students earn degrees. The American Medical Student Association supports expanding the National Health Services Corps, which provides loan forgiveness in exchange for service in underserved areas. Nida Degesys, AMSA’s president, graduated in May 2013 from Northeast Ohio Medical University with about $180,000 in loans. The amount has already swelled with interest to about $220,000. “There were times where this would make me stay up at night,” Degesys said. “The principal alone is a problem, but the interest is staggering.” Yet, as costly as medical school was, Degesys sees it as an investment in herself and her career, one she thinks will pay off with a higher earning potential. Elliott says the country needs to re-think college financing options to bring debt down and graduation rates up. “We can’t,” let debt hinder a whole generation from accumulating wealth” he said.

The U.S. recorded the most deaths in its history and the fewest births since 1998, resulting in the lowest population gain from natural causes in 35 years, an analysis of 2013 Census Bureau estimates released Thursday shows. Americans remain cautious about having babies following the worst recession since the Great Depression, although they are increasingly changing residences again, suggesting growing confidence in the economic recovery. Those are among the findings from county-level data that also show the largest metropolitan areas are getting bigger as much of the rest of the nation sees slower population growth or declines. Rural areas where oil and natural gas production is booming and Gulf Coast retirement conclaves are notable exceptions to that trend. “The recession’s influence on migration may be waning, but it continues to have a negative impact on births,” said Ken Johnson, a senior demographer with the University of New Hampshire’s Carsey Institute who analyzed the data. If the nation returned to a more normal fertility rate, it could boost the economy by spurring demand for new homes and goods ranging from diapers to furniture and cars. Rising fertility rates in states such as South Dakota, where unemployment is 3.6 percent, have prompted some demographers and economists to predict a reversal of the nationwide decline in fertility that coincided with the recession and its aftermath. Johnson’s analysis is based on newly released data for the year ending July 1, 2013. It shows there were 3.95 million births during those 12 months, compared with 4.31 million in the pre-recession 2006-07 period, a drop of 8.4 percent amid an overall U.S. population that continued to grow because of immigration. The preliminary U.S. fertility rate for the 12-month period ending June 2013 was 62.7 births per 1,000 women ages 15-44, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. That was down from the recent-history high of 69.3 in 2007, and slightly down from the year ending June 30, 2012. “These data suggest that the impact of the recession has been particularly pronounced among younger women, who are likely delaying” becoming mothers, Johnson said. The recession lasted from December 2007 to June 2009. States that did better during the recession had no or little fertility declines, while harder-hit areas such as Arizona, Nevada, California, Florida and Georgia posted some of the biggest drops. Areas rich with oil and natural gas in and near the Great Plains continue to record some of the fastest population growth, the Census Bureau said.

Activists: Mexican women giving birth in the streets By Adriana Gomez Licon The Associated Press

MEXICO CITY — Women’s rights advocates sought international help Thursday in ending what they call a pattern of poor indigenous Mexican women being turned away from hospitals while in labor, forcing them to give birth on lawns, patios or parking lots. Activists working in villages in southern Mexico say they have documented at least 20 recent cases of women giving birth outside hospitals whose staff claimed there was no room. Photos and video of some incidents posted on social media sites have prompted outrage in Mexico and around the world. Mexican health officials have said the cases are isolated and unavoidable due to overcrowding and limited resources at some rural health centers. But women’s advocates appealed to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights on Thursday, saying they believe there is a systemic problem of prejudice and callousness toward indigenous women in the Mexican public health system. “These are not isolated cases. We have a pattern. We are

not talking about one woman. There are many and nothing is being done to solve the problem,” said Regina Tames, director of the Reproductive Choice Information Group, a nongovernmental organization based in Mexico City. Pablo Kuri Morales, deputy health secretary for preventive care, said most of the births in Mexico’s health system occur without problems, but he acknowledged that hundreds of women here still die every year during or immediately after they give birth. Earlier this month, President Enrique Peña Nieto urged hospitals not to refuse care to women in labor. Also, Oaxaca Gov. Gabino Cue recently announced a $550,000 investment to set up 50 new delivery rooms across the state. But just this week, local media reported the case of a woman feeling contractions who had been sent away by a hospital and was only re-admitted after photographers began arriving. None of the women or babies have died or suffered from major health problems, but Tames said authorities shouldn’t wait for a death before adding more resources to understaffed rural clinics and hospitals.

ferent version on a 399-19 vote that also provides assistance to Ukraine and penalizes Russia. Lawmakers hope to send a single bill to the White House for Obama’s signature by week’s end. Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the votes were “critical for President Putin to hear.” Deshchytsia said the strong support reaffirms the U.N. Charter’s guarantee of territorial integrity and “will give an overwhelming majority of countries an additional argument” for “stronger and more concrete action” against Russia. Russia was only able to muster 10 other “no” votes — Armenia, Belarus, Bolivia, Cuba, North Korea, Nicaragua, Sudan, Syria, Venezuela and Zimbabwe. But Russia’s U.N. Ambassador Vitaly Churkin called it “a moral victory for the Russian diplomacy, because an increasing number of countries are beginning to understand the complexity of the situation and the motives behind the actions of Crimea and the Russian Federation.”

seeing that this is an issue.” The president said the plight of the poor and marginalized was a central topic in their talks, along with Middle East peace, conflicts in Syria and the treatment of Christians around the world. Social issues, he said, were not discussed in detail. However, the Vatican left out any reference to inequality issues in its description of the meeting. In a written statement, church officials instead said discussions among not only the pope and president but also their top aides centered on questions of particular relevance for the church leaders in the U.S., making veiled references both to abortion and a contraception mandate in Obama’s health care law, which is under review

by the Supreme Court. For Obama, the meeting with the pope marked a departure from the intense focus on the situation in Ukraine, which dominated his first three days in Europe. Obama and Francis, two of the world’s most recognizable men, both appeared nervous as they shook hands before entering the Papal Library. “I’m a great admirer,” Obama said to the smiling pope. The two men then sat across from each other at a wooden desk for a private meeting that lasted 52 minutes, well beyond the half-hour that had been scheduled. Obama extended an invitation for the pope to visit the United States. Speaking in his native Spanish, the Argentine pope replied, “Why not?”

Australia: Planes are searching new area

Weary rescuers battle rain, exhaustion

By Eileen Ng and Rob Griffith The Associated Press

PERTH, Australia — Planes are searching a new area of the Indian Ocean for possible signs of the Malaysian airliner after a new analysis of radar data suggests the plane flew faster than thought and used up more fuel, which may have reduced the distance it traveled, Australia said Friday. Based on the new information, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said it had shifted the search area for the jet that disappeared nearly three weeks ago to a region 680 miles to the northeast of where planes and ships had been trying to find any sign of it. Four search planes were in the area Friday, and six ships were headed there, said John Young, manager of AMSA’s emergency response division, adding they had moved on from the previous search area, some 2,500 kilometers southwest of Perth, the launching base for the search. AMSA said the change in search areas came from new information based on continuing analysis of radar data between the South China Sea and the Strait of Malacca before radar contact was lost with Flight 370 early on March 8. The analysis indicated the aircraft was traveling faster than previously estimated, resulting in increased fuel use and reducing the possible distance the aircraft could have flown into the Indian Ocean. “This is our best estimate of the area in which the aircraft is likely to have crashed into the ocean,” said Martin Dolan, chief commissioner of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau. The new search area is more than 600 miles north of an area in which apparently floating objects were spotted by Japanese, Thai and French satellites earlier this week. Most of the objects measured from about 3 feet to about 65 feet. Young said those satellite images “may or may not actually be objects,” and acknowledged that the search had moved away from that previous area. He said it not unusual to make such changes and dismissed questions that the earlier searches had been a wasted effort. “This is the normal business of search and rescue operations — that new information comes to light, refined analyses take you to a different place,” Young told reporters. “I don’t count the original work as a waste of time.” The new area is 123,000 square miles and about 1,250 miles west of Perth. The sea depth in the new area ranged from 6,560 feet to 13,120 feet, Young said. Australia’s HMAS Success and five Chinese vessels were on their way, and the Success was expected to arrive there late Saturday night, Young said. Strong winds and currents have made it difficult to pinpoint objects spotted so far, and the search has yet to produce any trace of the plane. Malaysian officials said earlier this week that satellite data confirmed the plane crashed into the southern Indian Ocean. Authorities are rushing to find any piece of the plane to help them locate the so-called black boxes, or flight data and voice recorders, that will help solve the mystery of why the jet, en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur, flew so far offcourse. The battery in the black box normally lasts about a month. For relatives of the 239 people aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, the various clues and failed searches so far have just added to their agonizing waits. Wang Zhen, whose parents were aboard the missing plane, said in a telephone interview in Beijing that he was becoming exasperated. “There is nothing I can do but to wait, and wait,” he said. “I’m also furious, but what is the use of getting furious?”

DARRINGTON, Wash. — Weary rescuers in hip waders pressed through rain and their own exhaustion Thursday, searching for more bodies and a perhaps a miracle atop the pile of filth and debris that laid waste to a Washington town and killed at least 25 people. Rescue and cadaver dogs occasionally led crews to a wrecked car or the ruins of a house containing a body. Teams then began removing the corpse, ignoring the muck that clogged their tools. As the victim was taken away, silence fell over the site. The main goal now is to find more bodies and winnow the list of the 90 people still missing in the mudslide that buried the community of Oso on Saturday. At this point, narrowing that list means only one thing: digging. There are no more phone calls to relatives, no more doorto-door searches in hopes of locating people who just haven’t checked in yet. “At this time, we’re not using any other type of methods other than the search and rescue,” said Casey Broom of the Snohomish County emergency operations center. The more than 200 people working on the sludgy heap cling to hope that at least one survivor is waiting for them in some pocket of the pile, which is

a square mile wide and 40 feet deep in places. “My heart is telling me I’m not giving up yet,” Snohomish County District 21 Fire Chief Travis Hots said. “If we find just one more person alive, it’s all

worth it to me.” After six days of searching, people are not the only ones showing signs of strain. Shane Barco’s 3-year-old German shepherd has found bodies and body parts. But, Barco said, the dog

gets frustrated when they don’t bring anybody out alive. Days of combing through what Barco called a blender of debris has exhausted the dog, leading Barco to stop the search for a while. Authorities warned the community to expect a substantial rise in the death toll within the next two days as the medical examiner’s office catches up with the recovery effort. Seventeen bodies have been recovered, but officials say at least nine more had been found as of Thursday. The medical examiner’s office has so far formally identified only a single victim, 45-year-old Christina Jefferds. Family members have confirmed a handful of other fatalities to news organizations. The body of Jefferds’ granddaughter, 4-month-old Sanoah Huestis, was found Thursday, said Dale Petersen, the girl’s great-uncle. Petersen said he arrived on the scene to help look for survivors to find that work had stopped. A firefighter informed him and others that the infant had been found, Petersen said. He said the news provides closure for the family. “We spent a lot of time together,” he said of the baby girl. Five people injured by the mudslide remain in a Seattle hospital, including a 5-month-old boy in critical condition. Besides the 90 missing, authorities are checking into

35 other people who may or may not have been in the area at the time of the slide. If dozens more bodies are found or left entombed in the debris, the Oso mudslide could become one of Washington state’s largest disasters. The 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens killed 57 people, and a 1910 avalanche near Stevens Pass that struck two trains killed 96. “We do know this could end up being the largest mass loss of Washingtonians,” Gov. Jay Inslee said Thursday. “We’re looking for miracles to occur.” The searchers walk on plywood pathways to keep from sinking into the sucking slurry. Their task was made more difficult Thursday by the rain that saturated the sand, silt and clay that make up the debris pile. “You’ll fall in waist-deep in some areas, knee-deep in some areas,” said Washington National Guard Senior Airman Charlotte Gibson. “We just keep pushing on, doing what we can as slowly and meticulously as we can to make sure we don’t miss anything.” The moisture made the already treacherous surface even more unstable and raised concern about the safety of collapsed hillside above them. “Right now there [is] no risk of additional slides, but we’re watching the rain,” said Steven Thomsen, the county’s public works director. “If it starts to move, we’ll pull the crews out, but we don’t see that happening.”

Records: Legal documents claim violations of 4th, 14th amendments Continued from Page A-1 open records law in denying the public records requests. The Supremacy Clause isn’t the only constitutional provision Martinez’s lawyers say would be violated by making the governor turn over records. The responses bring up the Fourth and 14th amendments to the U.S. Constitution, as well as the separation-of-powers provision of the state constitution. Susan Boe, executive director of the New Mexico Foundation for Open Government, disputed those claims Thursday. “No court has ever held that IPRA, which is a straightforward access-to-records statute, violates the state or federal constitutions or separation-of-powers principles,” she said. “We do not believe that any constitutional analysis is required in this case. The only issue is whether IPRA allows the records to be withheld from the public, and we believe that it does not.” One of the AP’s lawsuits, against Martinez and the Department of Finance and Administration, was over the wire service’s request for copies

The suit claims the administration provided copies of cellphone logs for the governor and her staff but redacted phone numbers. The other suit, against the departments of Public Safety and Finance and Administration, is about a request for expense reports and receipts filed by Martinez’s security detail. Part of the request was for time sheets and other documents indicating when and why officers filed for overtime pay in months leading up to the 2012 presidential election. But the agencies released only aggregate tallies of expenses and overtime.

versus if there’s a real change,” said Coleen Boyle, the CDC official overseeing research into children’s developmental disabilities. For decades, autism meant kids with severe language, intellectual and social impairments and unusual, repetitious behaviors. But the definition has gradually expanded and now includes milder, related conditions. One sign of that: In the latest study, almost half of autistic kids had average or above average IQs. That’s up from a third a decade ago and can be taken as an indication that the autism label is more commonly given to higher-functioning children, CDC officials acknowledged. Aside from that, much in the latest CDC report echoes earlier findings. Autism and related disorders continue to

be diagnosed far more often in boys than girls, and in whites than blacks or Hispanics. The racial and ethnic differences probably reflects white communities’ greater focus on looking for autism and white parents’ access to doctors, because there’s no biological reason to believe whites get autism more than other people, CDC officials said at a press briefing Thursday. One change CDC officials had hoped to see, but didn’t, was a drop in the age of diagnosis. Experts say a diagnosis can now be made at age 2 or even earlier. But the new report said the majority of children continue to be diagnosed after they turn 4. “We know the earlier a child is identified and connected with services, the better,” Boyle said.

its products were linked to 41 salmonella cases in 20 states. It later reopened for about five months, but shut down last October after the company’s Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing. Sunland processed Valencia peanuts, a sweet variety of peanut that is unique to the region and preferred for natural butters because it is flavorful without additives. Sonya Warwick, spokeswoman for New Mexico’s largest food bank, declined to comment directly on the situation, but she noted that rescued food accounted for 74 percent of what Roadrunner Food Bank distributed across New Mexico last year. “Our fleet picks up rescued food from hundreds of locations weekly and brings it back to the food bank,” she said. “Before distributing it, volunteers help label, sort or repack it for distribution to partner agencies across the state. “Access to rescued food allows us to provide a more well-rounded and balanced meal to New Mexicans experiencing hunger.”

Rent: Deputies must pay utilities, provide their own mobile homes Continued from Page A-1 Two city councilors have said the lease opportunities were meant for lower-level police officers, as an incentive to encourage more to live inside the city rather than commute from surrounding areas with lower housing costs. The county has a similar program in place, said Sheriff Robert Garcia. According to county records, three deputies live on public property. One lives in a mobile home at the county’s Agua Fría Park, and another at Leo Gurule Park. One deputy rents a home at the Valle Vista subsidized housing complex. The deputy at Agua Fría Park, a recently promoted corporal who earns $25.80 per hour, or about $54,000 a year, has been living on the property for about three and a half years. Previously, he was making a base salary of about $44,000 a year. The deputy at Leo Gurule Park is making about $44,000 a year. He has lived at the park since November 2013. The deputy at Valle Vista, who makes $46,000 as a detective, has lived in the housing development since June 2012. Like the city employees, the deputies who live at the parks have to pay their own utilities costs and must provide their own mobile home. They don’t pay rent, but their contracts stipulate certain requirements. For example, they have to report any vandalism or property damage within 24 hours, and they must keep the home site, as well as the park, clean “of debris, weeds, trash and other litter.” They also have to provide monthly reports about the state of the property to the county’s Public Housing Authority. Garcia said he thinks younger deputies benefit the most from the housing policy, and he pointed out that no deputies living on county property are among the department’s higherranking officers. Similar rules apply for the deputy who lives in the Valle Vista neighborhood, but he must pay $100 a month rent and must provide a $100 secu-

rity deposit. That deputy must be “active and visible” in the community, and is required to “patrol the housing neighborhood on a daily basis,” as well as maintain the site, the contract states. The county’s Housing Authority Board approved a resolution in 2013 that called for the continuation of the program. In the resolution, county officials said placing law enforcement officials in public housing decreases crime in the area. Garcia said the county notifies his office when an opening on county property becomes available, and the office sends out an announcement to deputies who might want to apply for the program. Garcia said the deputy housing program is not a “handout.” In fact, he said he would have avoided it as a starting deputy because of the requirement to always be on call. That might a reason why “no one usually jumps” on offers to live on county land when they become available, he said. In contrast, Santa Fe Police Officers Association President Matt Martinez said he has never seen an announcement alerting city officers that public properties are available for lease. Martinez said the news usually circulates through the police department via word of mouth. City officials have yet to provide documents detailing the program, which several news agencies have requested under the state Inspection of Public Records Act. And the city’s lease contracts, unlike the county’s, don’t provide specific details of how the officers’ rental agreements will benefit the city. Some of the contracts state that the city will receive a monthly payment, as well as the “benefit of having a police officer living” on the public land. Schaerfl’s contract has no such language, although Schaerfl is required to maintain his home site. The contract also requires him to install a landline in his home, and the phone number has to be reported to the city parks division. And data

from the police department indicate he has responded to 35 calls in the area since April 2013. Celina Westervelt, a spokeswoman with the city police department, said an officer living on Siringo Road helps to safeguard a nearby police substation, as well as the department’s records division. She also said that reports of vandalism near Camino de los Montoyas have decreased since an officer began living in that neighborhood. That officer also cares for a retired K-9. The city’s lease agreements say the rental deal is considered a taxable benefit, which means the difference of the subsidized rent and the actual rental value is counted as taxable income. City spokeswoman Jodi McGinnis Porter said that could be why Schaerfl and city officials initially told The New Mexican that the deputy chief paid $50 a month, instead of the $20 cited in his lease agreement. Jerry Archuleta, a former city employee who lived on the property where Schaerfl now resides, said he learned about the rental deal by word of mouth, and that the program was “designed for people without a lot of money.” When he moved onto the property with his son, Archuleta said, he was “super poor” and received food stamps. He said he paid about $20 a month for the mobile home site, and that he didn’t pay for utilities because there were no meters to measure his usage. He said the $20 fee included garbage pickup, but he did pay for his own propane to heat the home. Archuleta said living on city property allowed him to save up money, which he eventually used to build his own home. That’s when he moved out, he said, and Schaerfl, then a patrol officer, moved in. “I made rank and had saved money,” he said. “I lived real simple because I was saving the money to build the house. It’s not designed for you to live there forever.” Contact Chris Quintana at 986-3093 or cquintana@

Phillip Chacón tries to defend himself Thursday during a hearing on a tie vote in the Española City Council race between him and Michelle R. Martinez, shown behind him. Martinez’s boyfriend, Estevan Garcia, stands by her side. Martinez won a coin toss to break the tie, 2-3. JANE PHILLIPS/THE NEW MEXICAN

Flip: Chacón says he will sue in attempt to recapture council seat Continued from Page A-1 reversed himself. He said he is free on bond after being arrested on suspicion of choking his 13-year-old son. Chacon did not want to rile a judge and end up back in jail, he said. After some haggling, he and Martinez agreed to a coin flip. Chacon, 32, insisted that he be allowed to call “heads.” He said this was critical to him because “In God We Trust” is inscribed on the head side of coins. Martinez, 38, let Chacon have his way. Then Mathew added to the drama by saying the coin flip would be the best of three. The first toss by the judge ended with “tails.” Then came another tie, as the second flip of the coin was “heads.” On the third and deciding toss by Mathew, the coin came up tails. Martinez was all smiles as the judge declared her the winner and new city councilor. Frank Coppler, the Española city attorney, asked that she be sworn in immediately, but Mathew said she could take the oath of office back in Española. As for Chacon, he said he would sue in hopes of recap-

turing the council seat. He said the entire Española city election should be invalidated because the number of votes cast and votes counted do not match. Coppler said much of the confusion occurred because District Judge Raymond Ortiz disqualified a District 2 council candidate named Wray Ortiz after early and absentee voting had already started. Judge Ortiz and the ousted candidate are not related. Even though Wray Ortiz was ineligible by court order, his name was still programmed on ballots in some voting machines, Coppler said. In addition, voters for 25 days were able to cast ballots for him. Along with Wray Ortiz, the city had to tabulate votes for three other candidates in the District 2 race. Chacon and Martinez ran almost neck and neck, leading to the eventual recount. Chacon said he had a team of lawyers who would sue to challenge the election results. In court on Thursday, Chacon represented himself. Irritable, Chacon referred to City Attorney Coppler by his last name only, prompt-

ing the judge to tell him that courtesy titles were necessary in the courtroom. More terse exchanges between Chacon and the judge followed. By the end of the hearing, Chacon was in another clash. Española city employees have filed a grievance against him, alleging he had created a hostile environment at City Hall. Joaquin Maestas, who heads the city employees’ union, said the organization would seek a restraining order against Chacon. This should be easier now that Chacon is out of office. “The guy, he’s such a wild card,” Maestas said. Chacon fired back that he loved city employees and had good relationships with most of them. He called Maestas “a little crybaby.” As for Martinez, she said she looked forward to serving the public. She said she had kept faith that she would win, believing all along that she had the most votes. Contact Milan Simonich at 986-3080 or msimonich@ Follow his Ringside Seat blog and column at

Women suffer if bosses have all the say


eparating a black woman’s reproductive life from her spiritual life isn’t always easy. Religiosity informs much of our lives, including our reproductive lives. Whether we look to our creator for guidance in pregnancy matters or to trusted faith leaders for advice on how to raise our children, it is a vital component prevalent in the larger black experience and also a very intimate one. And as a follower of Jesus, I believe that everyone’s spiritual or religious journey is deeply personal. Because each person’s experience of God and faith is unique, no one should impose his or her beliefs on your journey. Yet that is exactly what is happening in the Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. v. Sebelius and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. v. Sebelius cases being argued this week before the Supreme Court. Hobby Lobby CEO David Green and Norman Hahn of Conestoga contend that their religious liberty is infringed by the Affordable Care Act’s mandate that employer health plans include coverage for contraceptive care — specifically, emergency contraceptives like Plan B in the case of Green, and IUDs in the case of Hahn — but that’s not so. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga are for-profit corporations, not religiously affiliated notfor-profits. Green and Hahn may have personal objections to certain forms of contraception — which is their right — but corporate bosses imposing their personal beliefs on employees is an abuse of power, not religious liberty. The Supreme Court has not yet held that corporations have religious beliefs, and the decision the justices will eventually hand down won’t merely determine whether some types of birth control are OK and others not. It has the potential to be a decision of Citizens United magnitude, extending to corporations what has to this point been the deeply personal province of personal belief.

Final countdown to get insurance

O I find it untenable that we might head down the road to denying care — in the name of religion — when my faith teaches me that all people should have access to resources that they need to make decisions about the here and now — particularly when it comes to responsible family planning. When employers claim religious liberty as a reason not to provide adequate health coverage to female employees, women — especially black women — pay the price. We know that women who have access to birth control get more education, earn better livings, are healthier and have more stable relationships than women who do not, but today in America, women don’t have equal access to those benefits. Those benefits have measurable positive — and potentially life-changing — outcomes. Babies born to mothers who can space their pregnancies are more likely to be healthy at birth and less likely to suffer low birth weight and developmental disabilities.

According to the Guttmacher Institute, 83 percent of black women who are at risk of unintended pregnancy currently use a contraceptive method. Many of them get it through their employer-based health insurance — but what happens when a boss decides he doesn’t want to make birth control available through the company’s plan? The Pill isn’t the focus of the cases currently before the court, but make no mistake — there are companies with more conservative bosses who would use any decision in their favor to deny a wide range of health care options to which they have a personal objection. And let’s not forget that oral contraceptives are used for more than family planning. Of the 1.5 million women using oral contraceptives, 14 percent rely on this method exclusively for noncontraceptive purposes. It’s especially true for black women suffering from uterine fibroids — which we are three times more likely to have than our white counterparts. As a person of faith, I have

a religious tradition that tells me I have a right to make personal decisions based on my individual values. And as a young black woman, I’m all too familiar with our society’s tendency to deprive people like me of equal access to resources. Religious values and reproductive values can and do coexist, though — not only for me but also for millions of people like me. As we watch the Hobby Lobby case unfold, people of faith should remember that imposing your religious beliefs on someone else is not religious liberty. It is religious oppression. We should not stand by while faith is used as a tool of oppression to deny women the right to take care of their own bodies and to exercise their own religious consciences. Our right to speak up for our sisters and ourselves is real religious liberty.

Choose a diet that is healthy and humane


agree with Casey Seidenberg (“Teach kids to listen to their bodies,” March 22) with regard to “bio-individuality” and the best diet for any given person. However, consumers, including children, should also know where their food comes from and how it is produced (e.g. factory farms). They may then make choices based not solely on their own well-being but also on the well-being of animals. Eating humanely as a factor in food choices has been overlooked in this article as well as by many human beings. Eileen Blau

Influencing favors Our Republican darling of a governor has done nothing to assist New Mexicans in their job search. She has exported behavioral health jobs to Arizona by promoting a bogus “audit.” Along with the jobs, she sent millions of dollars of behavioral health funds. She sends our tax revenues to Tennessee to conduct “branding” surveys for the city of Las Vegas — by a company (North Star) — $100,000, at last count. She employs an unqualified education secretary out of Jeb Bush’s Florida to pay back campaign favors. She allows the

Koch brothers to run rough shod over the legislative process in our state, and she is now taking on our unions, a la her Wisconsin buddies, and we are paying for her “presidential” campaign through unreported travel expenses. Can a state devastated to repay her campaign debts long endure? J. Emilio Aragon

me, however, was to see the name of Guy M. Hodgkins just two lines above that of Joseph Trujillo in your photo of the “Wall” on A-1. Guy was a friend and classmate in Los Alamos in the early 1950s. He was killed in action while single-handedly taking out the major position of a Viet Cong ambush of his platoon for which he was posthumously awarded the Navy Cross, our nation’s second-highest medal for valor. He was loved for his character and respected for his bravery by the Marines he led. Those of us who knew him as a carefree teenager remember the everpresent smile and easy laughter of “36” — the number on his football jersey. Richard E. Saunier

Update needed Every Tuesday I’m stunned anew when happening upon the “Ask a Mexican” column. I understand this is a syndicated column which comes with logo attached. In an age of increased sensitivity to caricatured ethnic portrayals, I find this well-worn cartoon-like image offensive and unfortunate. I enjoy the column but would welcome an updated image.

ne more reminder — the deadline for obtaining health insurance by the Affordable Health Care Act deadline is Monday. That’s right. Sign up by Monday (or be in the process of signing up) or wait until 2015 to buy health insurance and be covered. That’s particularly important in New Mexico, where so many of the state’s residents do not have health insurance. By mid-March, about 15,000 New Mexicans had enrolled in health plans through the federally run health insurance exchange, a lower number than desired. Another 500 or so had signed up through the New Mexico small business, or SHOP exchange, using the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange. Many more — 100,000 or so — have obtained insurance through Medicaid, coverage for lower-income individuals and families. That’s actually on target to meet the goal of signing up 130,000 people by fall, and is making a dent in the estimate 400,000 people who believed to lack health insurance in the state. People have also signed up through insurance brokers. In the final few days of the sign-up period, there’s going to be a rush as more people realize the deadline is near. In New Mexico, interested shoppers can text BeWellNM at 311411 to get information. They also can visit and get started on purchasing health insurance. The earlier they act, the better, because heavy online traffic is expected on Monday. However, people who are “in line” by the end of the day on March 31 will be able to complete their purchase in the next few days after the hard deadline has expired. Over the weekend, people with insurance should remind friends and family that there is still time to purchase health coverage. Many New Mexicans, of course, will be eligible for federal subsidies to bring down the costs of buying a policy. Others will qualify for Medicaid. Whichever works, get covered. (A reminder: Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center will have an enrollment event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the hospital, 455 St. Michael’s Drive. People can get information or, if they are ready, sign up for coverage.) Nationally, some 6 million have signed up for health insurance plans — a milestone. The decision of Congress to expand health coverage to all Americans — and to subsidize purchase of private policies to make it affordable — was controversial. Passage of the Affordable Care Act was hard-fought, with battles still taking place in the court to keep its promise of affordable health care coverage for every American. For the program to work, though, people need to buy insurance. (Remember, too, that failure to buy coverage will result in a penalty. The first year, it’s only $95 or 1 percent of total income, whichever is higher. That’s going up, making not having insurance expensive.) Having coverage means lesser burdens on emergency rooms and hospitals because of uninsured patients. Coverage means that people can catch major problems early, and avoid expensive surgery or prolonged hospital stays that can bankrupt them. Coverage means that those with chronic conditions — diabetes comes to mind — will be able to afford medications and doctor’s visits so their conditions receive treatment. None of that will happen, though, if people don’t sign up for health care insurance. This weekend, get covered, and encourage friends and family to do the same.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: March 28, 1914: Chicago — On the theory that they may have diseased brains and require mental treatment as a substitute for punishment, Chicago husbands who don’t support their wives hereafter may be sent to a laboratory instead of to jail. Those arrested on other charges may receive similar treatment. March 28, 1989: Those not wanting to take a chance on encountering drunken drivers in Santa Fe should stay away from Agua Fría Street, according to a recent state study. The study pointed out Agua Fría and Maez Road, Agua Fria and Avenida Cristobal Colon, Cerrillos Road and Calle de Resolana, Alameda and Paseo de Peralta, and Cerrillos Road and Baca Street as some the top 50 intersections in the state with the most car wrecks that involve alcohol.

Newsmakers Tweets about music to be a ‘Billboard’ chart

Janice Min

Chatter about music is everywhere on Twitter. Soon there will be a Billboard chart to rank all of it. The two companies plan to announce a deal to create the Billboard Twitter Real-Time Charts: continuously updated lists of the music that are being talked about and shared on Twitter in the United States. The charts, to be published on Billboard. com and through the publication’s Twitter feed, are expected to be introduced in May. The deal suggests an effort by Twitter to correct one of its rare public missteps: its #Music app, which was introduced with fanfare a year ago but quickly fizzled. Music is the most-discussed topic on the service, Twitter says; of its Top 10 accounts, seven are those of pop stars. For Billboard, the Twitter deal adds some Silicon Valley cachet as it tries to reinvent itself as a more consumer-oriented publication. Since Janice Min of The Hollywood Reporter took over the magazine in January, a changed Billboard has begun to take shape, with fewer gritty news columns and more space for celebrity and fashion coverage.

DELANO, Calif. n California’s fertile Central Valley, immigrant workers pick produce sold worldwide. They’re mostly Spanish speakers who work long hours in the dirt and sun — not your typical crowd for a Hollywood movie premiere. But this week, they were the guests of honor at a special screening of César Chávez, the new biopic opening Friday. More than 1,000 farmworkers sat in folding chairs outside the union hall where the first contracts were signed in 1970 between those who owned the fields and those who worked them. An inflatable movie screen stood upfront. The spirit of César Chávez was everywhere. Directed by Mexico’s Diego Luna, César Chávez follows the late civil rights leader from his first efforts to organize farm workers in 1962 to that historic 1970 signing. Before the contract, laborers worked the fields for pennies an hour and without breaks, bathrooms or shade. The union Chávez founded with fellow activist Dolores Huerta became the United Farm Workers, which continues to seek better wages and working conditions for field laborers two decades after Chávez’s death in 1993. On Tuesday, Chartered buses brought screening guests from six Central California counties to The Forty Acres in Delano, Calif., the union’s original headquarters, now a National Historic Landmark. Some were veterans of the strikes and boycotts Chávez led in the 1960s; others struggle today to organize under conditions not unlike those he fought against. Many held red flags and wore T-shirts with the United Farm Workers logo and famous motto, “Sí se puede!” “This film is about you. It’s about the people who feed this country,” Luna told the crowd


in Spanish. “It celebrates all those who today continue fighting.” The Lionsgate release stars Michael Peña as Chávez, America Ferrera as his wife, Helen, and Rosario Dawson as Huerta. John Malkovich, also a producer of the film, plays a villain grape grower. The César Chávez Foundation, United Farm Workers and the studio sponsored the outdoor screening, which also included a barbecue dinner for all 1,200 guests. The special premiere, dubbed in Spanish for the occasion, concluded a pre-release promotional tour that stopped at the White House last week for a screening with President Barack Obama, who adopted the union’s motto — translated, Yes, we can! — for his 2008 presidential campaign. For Paul F. Chávez, one of César Chávez’s eight children and head of his namesake foundation, the screening for farm workers was the most significant of all. “It was good to hear the President’s comments … about the inspiration he’s taken from my father’s life..” The Forty Acres is about two miles from where César Chávez began his movement: The house where he lived with his family, the Filipino Hall where he announced his first fast, Delano High School where the farmworkers got support from Sen. Robert Kennedy, and the intersection where police tried to stop Chávez and 75 other strikers on their 250-mile march to Sacramento in 1966. Paul Chávez said he hopes the film reminds farmworkers their work is important and resonates with others who “care about justice and care about the future.” “The fact is my father wasn’t 6-foot-2. He didn’t use big, fancy words. He didn’t come from a fancy, rich family. He never owned a car, never owned a house. He was a man that looks like a lot of people in this crowd tonight,” he said.

Ranch owners sue utility over fire Lawsuit claims co-op’s failure to maintain easement resulted in Pecos Canyon blaze By Uriel J. Garcia

The New Mexican

Owners of two ranches in Pecos Canyon are suing the Mora-San Miguel Electric Cooperative, claiming the co-op failed to remove a dead tree that fell

onto a power line and sparked last May’s Tres Lagunas Fire. The lawsuit, which was filed Tuesday in the First District Court, alleges the co-op failed to maintain an electrical easement that crosses River Bend Ranch near N.M. 63. Under

the easement, the co-op was allowed to cut and trim all trees and shrubbery to keep them clean of the electric line and to cut trees on property adjoining the easement that were tall enough to strike the wires, the complaint says. The fire started May 30, 2013, when a dead tree standing on River Bend Ranch property near the easement fell on some

power lines. The blaze burned more than 10,200 acres, including portions of River Bend Ranch and a property known as Old Ranch or Viveash Ranch, destroying thousands of acres of timber. The ranch owners seek unspecified compensatory and punitive damages for restora-

shootings and feeling powerless, when he got the idea to have Lyon create a memorial sculpture. He already owned a piece of her work — a smaller library containing several figures — and had been in touch with her to discuss repairs to the work. He emailed her in middle of the night, asking if she would accept the job. Lyon said it took her several months to decide. “I really didn’t know whether I could,” she said. “I never tried to do anything like this before. This is a very serious situation, and I had to process that and figure out how I could portray this. How would I do that and still have it be my work, something that was coming from me?” Because she had created pieces that had portrayed libraries, which represent education to her, she felt that was a good starting place. Before she began working on the piece last June, she did some research on the event and compiled a list of the names of those who had died. But she decided not to include the names on the finished piece. She also referenced work by Maya Lin, the artist who designed the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C., because Lyon thought that memorial was one of the “most moving” she’d ever seen. Lyon finished the sculpture — a piece about 33 inches long, 26 inches wide and 20 inches high — in February.

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration said Thursday it is placing a grassland grouse known as the lesser prairie chicken on a list of threatened species, a move that could affect oil and gas drilling, wind farms and other activities in five central and southwestern states, including New Mexico. The decision by the Fish and Wildlife Service is a step below “endangered” status and allows for more flexibility in how protections for the bird will be carried out under the Endangered Species Act. Dan Ashe, the agency’s director, said he knows the decision will be unpopular with governors in the five affected states — Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado and New Mexico — but said the agency was following the best science available. “The lesser prairie chicken is in dire straits,” Ashe said in an interview. “The bird is in decline and has been in decline for more than a decade.” The prairie chicken, a type of grouse known for its colorful neck plume and stout build, has lost more than 80 percent of its traditional habitat, mostly because of human activity such as oil and gas drilling, ranching and construction of power lines and wind turbines, Ashe said. The bird, which weighs up to 2 pounds, also has been severely impacted by the region’s ongoing drought. Biologists say a major problem is that prairie chickens fear tall structures, where predators such as hawks can perch and spot them. Wind turbines, electricity transmission towers and drilling rigs are generally the tallest objects on the plains. Last year, the prairie chicken’s population across the five states declined to fewer than 18,000 birds — nearly 50 percent lower than 2012 population estimates. A conservation plan adopted by the five states has a goal of increasing the population to 67,000 birds. While the birds are not crucial to the ecosystem, their presence and population provide a measure of the health of grasslands and prairies. More than 80 percent of the bird’s habitat is on private land. Oil companies have said potential new regulations would impede their operations and would cost them hundreds of millions of dollars in oil and gas development in one of the country’s most prolific basins, the Permian Basin in Texas and New Mexico. Fish and Wildlife officials had refused nearly two years ago to list the species as threatened, and efforts across the region have brought about conservation agreements and habitat protection plans from landowners, the oil and gas industry and those aiming to increase the prairie chicken’s numbers. The listing decision, which will take effect around May 1, includes a special rule that Ashe said will allow officials and private landowners in the five affected states to manage conservation efforts. The rule, which Ashe called unprecedented, specifies that activities such as oil and gas drilling and utility line maintenance that are covered under a five-state conservation plan adopted last year will be allowed to continue. The plan, developed by the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, establishes that conservation practices carried out through usual agricultural and energy development are not subject to further regulation under

ocal artist Lucy Lyon’s Sandy Hook Memorial looks like it might have been made for a child. Dozens of candy-colored, stained-glass books line the shelves of a miniature library filled with tiny glass chairs — just the right size to be arranged by small hands. But the piece is not a toy. It’s heavy and fragile, and the edges of the glass are sharp. The sculpture was created to memorialize the 2012 massacre of 20 students and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., but the only direct reference to the shootings is the date — Dec. 14, 2012 — etched on the base. “What I wanted to do was honor the people that were lost,” Lyon said. “I wanted to honor their spirit as opposed to what happened. Glass is so breakable, life is so fragile.” Lyon said the six stacks of books that form a protective circle around the miniatures chairs represent the six adults — mostly teachers — who lost their lives trying to protect the children under their care when 20-year-old Adam Lanza stormed the school with three firearms and fired 156 rounds. Six open books also are symbols of the six women killed that day. The 20 chairs, in pastel colors such as lemon yellow and lilac, represent the 20 children who died.

The chairs are arranged in groupings that call to mind a story hour, but none is occupied. “To me, the absence of people is a strong statement,” said Lyon of Jaconita, whose work usually includes figures. She was commissioned to create the work by Donald R. Droppo Sr., chairman of Curtis Packaging Corp., which has been operating in Sandy Hook since 1845. Sandy Hook is a village located within the town of Newtown. “When I was running [the company], I always felt a sense of stewardship,” said Droppo, who retired recently and has been succeeded by his son. “Sandy Hook is a small community. So when the tragedy happened, I couldn’t think about anything else besides the precious lives that were lost.” Droppo said none of his employees lost children or grandchildren during the event, but he still couldn’t get the tragedy out of his mind. “I don’t know how to describe the feeling of loss,” he said. “It’s like these kids are your own kids. No, you didn’t know them by name, but they are yours, and the teachers are your teachers, and the staff members are your staff members. I wanted to do something — the lives can’t be brought back — but something to honor the beautiful lives that were lost.” About a week after the shootings, Droppo said, he was lying in bed thinking about the

Reservoir release sends water downstream ahead of spring runoff By Staci Matlock

The New Mexican

The entire stretch of the Santa Fe River that runs through the city was flowing Wednesday and Thursday as officials released water from a municipal reservoir to prepare for spring runoff. The flows also have been helped by recent rain and runoff from adjoining arroyos. The city has been releasing water from the McClure Reservoir to leave room for snowmelt flows while the neighboring Nichols Reservoir in the Santa Fe Municipal Watershed stands empty for

repairs. Contractors are completing a project to rebuild a water-intake structure. Most of the water released from the McClure Reservoir is treated at the Canyon Road Water Treatment Plant and sent to customers. Some of the water, however, is allowed to flow down the Santa Fe River, where it is diverted for irrigation to the Acequia Madre at Canyon Road. Some of the flows are then returned to the river channel below Frenchy’s Field. Meanwhile, drought conditions have held steady, with no increase in the last week in Santa Fe County

and across New Mexico. Currently, none of the state is in extreme drought, the most severe level as measured by the multi-agency U.S. Drought Monitor. Northern Santa Fe County is in moderate drought, and the southern third of the county in extreme drought. With the state often seesawing between severe drought and floods, managing reservoirs is practically an art form. Water managers want to save as much water as possible without risking a dam breach or flooding.

Shootings could hurt Duke City’s image The Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE — Recent fatal shootings by police officers might be hurting Albuquerque’s image and could affect the city’s economy, according to business leaders and elected officials. The Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce said Wednesday some potential new and repeat visitors are voicing reservations because of the shootings, and chamber President Terri Cole said she’s trying to assure them that Albuquerque is safe, the Albuquerque Journal reported. “The comments that we’ve received have run the gamut from people who had visited Albuquerque with the Balloon Fiesta and won’t come back to the event to people considering Albuquerque to retire in and have changed their mind about that decision,” Cole said. The fears come after Albu-

querque police were involved in two high-profile shootings in 10 days, which sparked a large protest downtown and renewed calls for reforms with the Albuquerque Police Department. Earlier this month, Albuquerque police fatally shot a homeless camper in the Sandia foothills following a long standoff and after authorities say he threatened to kill officers. Authorities said James Boyd, 38, died after officers fired stun guns, bean bags and six live rounds. But a helmet-camera video showed Boyd, who claimed to be a federal agent, gathering his belongings then turning away right before officers fired. Then, hours after a protest over that shooting, Albuquerque police shot and killed a 30-year-old man at a public housing complex. Authorities said he opened fire on officers. Albuquerque police also are under an ongoing U.S. Justice


Prisons must disclose source of lethal drugs By Michael Graczyk and Paul J. Weber The Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas — A judge ordered Texas prison officials Thursday to disclose the supplier of a new batch of lethal injection drugs to attorneys for two inmates set to be executed next month, but she stopped short of revealing the identity of the manufacturer to the public. The ruling by state District Judge Suzanne Covington came after the Texas Department of Criminal Justice argued that threats against execution suppliers are escalating. The agency recently obtained a threat assessment from law enforcement officers, and pictures on the Internet suggest physical harm against pharmacists making the drugs, Assistant Attorney General Nicole Bunker-Henderson said. State prison officials have lost previous attempts to keep information about its execution drug supplier confidential. “The circumstances have changed from 2012. We can show there’s evidence out there that there has been a significant, real concrete threat to similarly situated pharmacists,” Bunker-Henderson said. Phil Durst, one of the attorneys trying to make the suppliers known, said they had a right to know where the drugs originated. “Is it eBay? Did they have some good customer service rankings? We have no idea where it’s from or how it was made,” Durst said. “Maybe this stuff is A-OK. Maybe this stuff was laced with strychnine off the street. We don’t know, and they need to know before they inflict the ultimate penalty.” Texas prisons spokesman Jason Clark said the agency was “disappointed” in the ruling and would appeal. The prison agency lost its previous supplier last year after the compound pharmacy’s name was made public and it received threats. Prison officials contend the identity of the new drug source should be withheld to protect the new supplier. Attorneys for two death row inmates filed the lawsuit that led to Thursday’s hearing, contending that prisoners cannot evaluate the risk that could result in them being subjected to unconstitutionally cruel pain. Later Thursday, Texas executed its fourth inmate of the year, using the last of the pentobarbital supplied by a different compounding pharmacy last year. Attorneys for convicted killers Tommy Lynn Sells and Ramiro Hernandez-Llanas filed a lawsuit demanding the Texas Department of Criminal Justice name the provider of the new supply of pentobarbital, the sedative the state uses for lethal injections. The current supply of pentobarbital used for lethal injections in Texas expires April 1. Prison officials said last week they have a new supply but cited security reasons for declining to disclose the supplier’s name. On Wednesday, an Oklahoma judge voided that state’s execution law, agreeing with inmates that a “veil of secrecy” preventing them from seeking information about the drugs used in lethal injections violated their rights under the state constitution. Oklahoma officials plan to appeal. Oklahoma is among the states that have promised companies confidentiality if they will provide the sedatives or paralyzing agents used to execute condemned prisoners, and went beyond that to prevent information from being revealed even in court.

Department over excessive force cases and 37 shootings since 2010. Brad Winter, the senior member of the City Council, said he’s “absolutely” concerned about the city’s reputation, especially after the video of the Boyd shooting. “It went viral,” Winter said. “Public safety absolutely is a big concern. What are we going to do to fix this?” Councilor Rey Garduno, who represents the Southeast Heights, said he hopes people won’t lose hope and fail to do what’s needed to improve the police department. “I think it does hurt an area, a region when it’s spoken of in derisive terms,” Garduno said. “My hope is we can get rid of these cowboys or whoever’s causing these problems.” The backlash certainly has the attention of local business leaders. “We have fielded a few calls

and emails into our office from potential visitors,” said Tania Armenta of the Albuquerque Convention and Visitors Bureau, which has a contract to market the city. “We are concerned, as the city’s image is critical to the work we do to improve the economic vitality of the area.” The controversy coincides with Tesla Motors’ announcement this year that it’s considering New Mexico, among other places, for the construction of a massive battery plant. Cole said that how Albuquerque responds to the shootings may be a factor. “I think Tesla will understand that almost every city in America is trying to figure out how to address these kinds of situations,” Cole said. “What we do from this point forward is going to matter more to Tesla than what happened, provided the proper leadership [actions] are taken thoroughly and quickly.”

Pecos park hosts Civil War weekend

Pecos National Historical Park is hosting a Civil War in the West weekend with artillery demonstrations, music by a fife and drum corps, a look at period military medicine and the chance to interact with costumed interpreters. The activities Saturday and Sunday will highlight the 152nd anniversary of the Civil War Battle of Glorieta Pass, referred to by some as the “Gettysburg of the West.” New Mexico and the Pecos region played an important role in the outcome of the American Civil War. The park’s acting superintendent, Charles Strickfaden, said, “The Civil War weekend provides visitors with a great opportunity to experience the life of a soldier during the threeday battle.” There will be live black powder demonstrations twice each day, along with appearances by authors and historians. For additional information about the event, visit Pecos National Historic Park is 25 miles east of Santa Fe off Interstate 25 at Exit 307.

State to give hunting licence lottery refunds The state Game and Fish Department will be giving refunds to those who apply but fail to draw licenses to hunt bighorn sheep, oryx or ibex this coming season. The department’s announcement is in response to a federal court ruling this week that cleared the way for the state to give preference to residents when allocating licenses for the three species. For decades, an injunction had prevented the state from applying the preferential quotas. That gave nonresident hunters equal odds at winning a chance to hunt bighorn sheep, oryx and ibex. Now, 84 percent of the licenses will go to resident hunters. The court ruling has also prompted the department to delay this year’s drawing by about one week. Drawing results will be available no later than April 30.

Crews expect to enter underground nuke dump next week The Associated Press

CARLSBAD — The Department of Energy said Thursday it expects to get underground next week to begin investigating the cause and extent of a mysterious radiation leak from the government’s nuclear waste dump in southeastern New Mexico. Officials said the inspections of the shafts that workers will use to access the half-mile-deep repository are com-

plete, and they are preparing to send an initial crew of eight into the mine early next week. The dump has been shuttered since mid-February, when radiation was released above ground and into the air around Carlsbad, contaminating at least 17 workers with low doses of radiation. Four more workers are undergoing additional tests to see if they were exposed, the Energy Department said.

Also Thursday, the Energy Department said it will expand its environmental monitoring to 10 more stations that will test air, soil and vegetation around Hobbs, Artesia, Loving, Eunice and other nearby communities. To date, samples taken around Carlsbad have shown only radiation levels well below those deemed unsafe. The leak came nine days after a truck hauling salt underground at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant caught fire.

It’s unclear if the incidents were related. A report on the fire cited a series of safety shortcomings at the plant, which until last month operated for 15 years without a serious incident. And the head of a federal nuclear safety oversight board in a letter last week called the accidents “near misses” at a facility whose workers proved unprepared to respond to the emergencies. The dump is the nation’s only per-

manent underground repository for low-level radioactive waste, including things like plutonium-contaminated gloves, tools and protective clothing, from nuclear weapons facilities. With all waste shipments to WIPP halted since the Feb. 5 truck fire, the government is planning to temporarily store waste that needs to be removed from outdoor storage at Los Alamos National Laboratory at a commercial nuclear waste dump in West Texas.

That’s why it was important to leave a little extra room in McClure’s storage capacity, said Alex Puglisi, a city water official. He said this is the longest period of time when the storage level in the reservoir has neared 80 percent since it was built in 1926. “The water storage level of McClure Reservoir is approaching 78 percent of total storage capacity,” Puglisi said in a statement. Allowing the storage levels in McClure to rise wouldn’t be wise, he added. Last year, a single rainstorm raised the reservoir’s storage volume 21 percent. “If you do the math, the result is not a good place to be in terms of dam safety or the preservation of our water supply,” he said. The state saw record-breaking precipitation in the summer and fall of 2013. It is too soon to tell if the state could experience similar deluges again this summer. The Santa Fe River is likely to ebb and flow until mid-April, when the city begins allowing a regular amount of water to bypass the reservoirs as part of the city’s Living River Ordi-

nance. The ordinance commits up to 1,000 acre-feet of water a year to the river, depending on reservoir levels. The target flow usually occurs through June. The forecast for Santa Fe through the weekend is partly cloudy, with nighttime temperatures dipping below freezing.

Environmental groups hailed new federal protections, but said the wildlife agency had created a loophole that allows continued oil and gas drilling in exchange for voluntary conservation plans that are virtually unenforceable. “This is an emergency situation that requires the strongest protections possible,” said Jay Lininger, senior scientist with the Arizona-based Center for Biological Diversity. “Instead, the Fish and Wildlife Service turned its back and relied on voluntary conservation plans that only amount to a wink and a nod with no accountability.” A consortium of oil and gas industry groups said the industry’s effect on lesser prairie chickens is “poorly understood but likely to be negligible.” Potential impacts can be mitigated through voluntary conser-

the Endangered Species Act. Governors of the five affected states — including four Republicans — opposed listing the bird under the Endangered Species Act. In New Mexico, leaders of the state’s agriculture and energy departments and the interim director of the state Game and Fish Department voiced their opposition in a statement Thursday. They said the listing will “without question decimate economic development and job creation in southeastern New Mexico.” They also said the federal government opted for listing the bird despite work done by New Mexico and others to establish conservation agreements with landowners. Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback called the decision “an overreach” by the federal government and said he was looking at possible responses. A spokeswoman said that could include a lawsuit. Kansas legislators are considering a measure to declare that the state has sole authority to manage the bird’s population and habitat within its borders. Oklahoma’s Republican Gov. Mary Fallin said she was disappointed, but added that she believes state and federal officials “have a unique opportunity to show how a plan based in state management of this species can allow for a quick recovery” and eventual delisting of the bird.

Oklahoma’s attorney general filed a lawsuit this month over the Obama administration’s decision to settle a lawsuit with an environmental group over the listing status of the lesser prairie chicken and other species. Attorney General Scott Pruitt claims in the lawsuit that federal agencies are colluding with like-minded special interest groups and using “sue and settle” tactics that encourage lawsuits that can be settled on terms favorable to the groups that filed them. Ashe denied collusion with any group and said the agency hopes to avoid litigation over the listing decision. Oil and gas companies, ranchers and other landowners have pledged to devote more than 3 million acres in the five states toward conserving the bird’s habitat. Most of the acreage was set aside with the aim to prevent the bird from being given federal protection as a threatened species, but Ashe said states and private landowners will play a significant role after the listing decision. “The key thing is, states will remain in the driver’s seat in

and finding out which chile varieties would work best with mechanized harvesting. Some small companies are getting closer to developing a machine for destemming green chiles, she said. Those technological developments could be game-changers for New Mexico’s chile industry, Walker said. Chile has been a staple of New Mexico cuisine for centuries, and the Hatch region has become world famous for the flavorful hot peppers grown there. Chile is also the state vegetable and serves as the basis for the official state question: “Red or green?” Despite marketing efforts and the attractiveness of New Mexico’s green chile and red chile-based spices to national suppliers, the statistics show the value of the crop dropped to an estimated $49.5 million in 2013. That’s almost $16 million less than its value the previous year.


tion costs, along with attorneys fees and litigation expenses. A call seeking comment to the electrical co-op, which has offices in Mora and Pecos, wasn’t returned Thursday. The complaint says the co-op has repeatedly failed to respond to requests to remove “danger trees” and vegetation near power lines and discouraged landowners from doing so. The co-op never warned the landowners of the danger of this particular tree or took steps to remove the tree, which reportedly stood some 150 feet high, prior to the fire. The fire diminished the value of both ranches, the owners say. David Old of Old Wood relies on the trees on his property, Viveash Ranch, for his wood-flooring business. Also, he said, the ranch provides recreational activities such as fishing and hunting. The suit says the co-op has denied any responsibility and has refused to even discuss the

LAS CRUCES — A combination of dwindling water supplies in Southern New Mexico and the availability of farm labor are taking their toll on one of New Mexico’s most famous crops: chile. Statistics released Thursday by state and federal agriculture agencies show the amount of hot peppers planted, harvested and produced in the drought-stricken state in 2013 was down from the previous year. There were 65,000 tons of chile produced last year. That’s about 16 percent less than the nearly 78,000 tons produced the year before and significantly less than a decade ago, when production topped more than 100,000 tons. Fewer acres were grown in 2013, and officials said yields were lower for most variet-

ies, including hot and mild long green chiles. “Certainly the drought has an effect,” said Stephanie Walker, a vegetable specialist at New Mexico State University. Walker explained that farmers have had to rely more heavily on groundwater pumping to irrigate their crops because of the low river and reservoir levels that have plagued the state in recent years. That pumping has resulted in more salinity, which affects the yield of the chile plants. New Mexico also is losing acreage to Texas and Mexico, partly because of the cost and availability of labor. In 2013, 9,000 acres of chile were planted in New Mexico, down from the 10,000 planted in 2011. New Mexico State University researchers are trying to solve the labor issue through the development of machines that can harvest the crop. Walker said one focus is on the development of a one-row harvester

Colorado River begins flooding Mexican delta Conservationists hope water will help revive dried-up area The Associated Press

LOS ALGODONES, Mexico — Colorado River water has begun pouring over a barren delta near the U.S.Mexico border, the result of a landmark binational agreement being celebrated Thursday. The gush of water in Mexico is an effort to revive the last 70-mile stretch of the river into the Sea of Cortez. The delta dried up decades ago. Conservationists hope the water will bring back trees, wildlife and aquatic life that were once abundant in the region when it was teeming with water decades ago. The river’s most southern dam — Mexico’s Morelos Dam, near Yuma, Ariz. — on Sunday began unleashing 105,392 acre-feet of water, enough to supply more than 200,000 homes for a year. The one-time release is expected to last until May 18. The flow was expected to

intensify and reach a peak Thursday of an additional 4,200 cubic feet per second. “You just see visually quite clearly a much larger volume of water in the river and there’s quite a buzz about it,” said Terry Fulp, regional director of the Lower Colorado Region for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. A handful of officials from the U.S. and Mexico governments were on hand to celebrate the flow Thursday just across the border from Yuma. An estimated 400 people attended the event, said Jack Simes of the Bureau of Reclamation. “The pulse flow now underway is the first major step in a series of anticipated actions and cooperative measures outlined between our two countries,” said Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Water and Science Anne Castle. “Today’s event celebrates our shared vision to work together as partners to address the resources of the Colorado River and its parched delta.” Farms, businesses and homes in seven U.S. states — Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming

— rely on the Colorado River, as do the Mexican states of Baja California and Sonora. The return of water to the delta was a welcome sight in the Mexican town of San Luis Rio Colorado, where truckloads of families pulled up to the water’s edge in an area that last week was bone dry. As norteño music reverberated off a metal bridge, vendors sold coconuts and ice cream and kids flopped in the water. “Last week it was dry down here. On Sunday, there was even car racing down here, but now with so much water there’s no way. And that’s fine, this is much better,” said 18-year-old Perla Leon of San Luis Rio Colorado. In 2012, the two countries that share the river water agreed on ways to share the pain of droughts and bounty of wet years, a major amendment to a 1944 treaty. Part of that agreement called for restoration of the Colorado River delta. “Today we are witnessing what appears to be a paradigm shift in the way we manage water,” said Jennifer Pitt, director of the Colorado River Project, who helped negotiate

the one-time flood. “Historically in the West, everyone has approached water with an ‘us against them’ mentality. Now we’re talking about how we can share water, conserve water, and invest in new water projects and the health of the river itself. It’s truly refreshing.” The release of water was aided through water conservation projects by the U.S. and Mexico, according to the International Boundary and Water Commission. Officials from those two countries were scheduled to be at the Morelos Dam on Thursday for an event to mark the restoration effort. Experts will monitor the flood to determine its effects on the environment.

Demonettes hungry for state cheer trophy Santa Fe High team to compete Friday for Class AAAA title By James Barron The New Mexican

Marissa Branch could see blue just feet away from her, and all it did was embolden her resolve. The senior cheerleader at Santa Fe High could have touched the Class AAAA championship trophy the girls basketball team paraded in front of its adoring crowd on March 14, but the scene already touched her immeasurably. She knew that in two weeks, she and her Demonette teammates would get their chance to bring home a state title — and at the same venue as the basketball team. Santa Fe High will amble down The Pit’s ramp Friday afternoon as it embarks on its journey to fulfill unmet expectations as it vies for the Class AAAA cheer title at the 2014 State Spirit Championships. Branch, one of 12 seniors on the team, hopes that the goosebumps she got from watching the girls basketball team win their elusive state title will feel just as good on Saturday evening. “It made me want it that much more,” Branch said. “I was among some of the people who were emotional. It made me want it. It made me excited about the four years at Santa Fe High and working hard for something and bringing another state title home.” The parallels with the girls basketball team are striking. In 2013, Santa Fe High lost to Roswell in the AAAA quarterfinals in basketball; the cheer team took third as Roswell went home with the blue trophy. Both squads saw this year as “their year.” And the basketball team has been as big a supporter of the cheerleaders as they were of their peers. Branch

MEMPHIS, Tenn. he Florida Gators are back where their last three seasons have ended with yet another chance to go to the Final Four. Michael Frazier II hit five 3-pointers and finished with 19 points as the Gators beat UCLA 79-68 Thursday night to reach its fourth conFlorida 79 secutive NCAA UCLA 68 regional final. The Gators (35-2) also extended the best winning streak in school history to 29 straight in reaching the South Regional final. “From a team aspect, I think we’ve done a great job of just staying in the moment and just trying to chase greatness,” Frazier said. “When you do that, complacency isn’t a factor, so I think we’ve done a great job all year of just staying in the moment and chasing greatness.” The tournament’s overall top seed will play 11th-seeded Dayton on Saturday night for a trip to the Final Four. Dayton beat Stanford 82-72 earlier Thursday night. “Right now we got to put this game behind us and get focused on Dayton,” Florida senior Scottie Wilbekin said. “They’re a great team. Everybody is at this point in the season, and so we got to be locked in and ready because it’s going to be a battle.” Wilbekin added 13 points for Florida. Casey Prather had 12 points, and Dorian Finney-Smith had 10. Kasey Hill had 10 assists. The Gators have not lost since Dec. 2. The Gators lost to Michigan a year ago in a regional final. “But it’s a new team that we have, and we’re playing a new team so it’s a

Underdog Dayton trumps Stanford Flyers head to Elite Eight for the first time in 30 years By David Brandt

The Associated Press

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Like a red and blue blur, the Dayton Flyers were pressing and passing, shooting and scoring. The waves never seemed to stop Dayton 82 coming, with 10, 11 and then 12 players giving Stanford 72 them quality minutes. An exhausted and foul-plagued Stanford simply couldn’t keep up. The underdog Flyers — an 11 seed in this South Region — are now in the Elite Eight for the first time since 1984 after an emphatic 82-72 victory over Stanford on Thursday night.

“We had 11 guys score in the game and from top to bottom, we kept coming and coming,” Dayton coach Archie Miller said. “The way they shared the ball and moved the ball … it was a true team effort. It’s nice that on the biggest stage, we acted like ourselves.” Jordan Sibert scored 18 points and freshman Kendall Pollard added a season-high 12, as Dayton (26-10) made sure this one wasn’t particularly close after slipping by in the first two rounds. The 6-foot-4 Sibert was spectacular, slashing to the basket and draining 3-pointers, to help the Flyers lead for almost the entire night. Dayton showed its depth early, using a dozen players in the first half to wear down Stanford. “They were relentless,” Stanford coach

Padilla rode Annie to an eighth-place finish in the competition, which Padilla intimated that it might be the final one for the bay mare, who is 11 years old. Padilla said Annie was sore for most of the event, but they navigated their way through that. Still, Padilla was wistful about the prospects of breaking in a new horse. “She’s given me six years of pretty solid stuff,” Padilla said. “I’ve won a national championship with this horse and it might be time for me to say we’ve gone far enough.”

Manziel wows elder Bush, others at pro day By Kristie Rieken

The Associated Press

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Johnny Manziel’s NFL pro day had a former president, lots of swag, a Drake soundtrack and even some football, too. The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner threw for 75 officials from 30 teams on the Texas A&M campus on Thursday. He also had some special guests, as former President Geroge H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara — and her two dogs — rolled into the facility on golf carts about 10 minutes into the workout. The always flashy Manziel was true to his over-the-top Johnny Football persona Thursday, trotting into the facility with his receivers as a tune by his buddy Drake blasted through the building. He wore camouflage shorts, a black Nike jersey with his white No. 2 and caused a stir by wearing shoulder pads and a helmet. Manziel didn’t understand why it was a big deal. “You play the game on shoulder pads on Sundays,” he said. “Why not come out and do it? … For me it was a no-brainer.” Manziel threw about 65 passes to six receivers, including A&M teammate Mike Evans who, like Manziel, is expected to be a firstround pick in May’s draft. Only two passes weren’t caught and Evans grabbed a third long pass out of bounds. “I felt like it was good,” Manziel said. “[I] was obviously

going for perfection. So had a couple balls hit the ground. One was on me. One was a little bit high. I could’ve got it down for him a little bit.” Quarterback guru George Whitfield ran the workout. Manziel has worked with Whitfield throughout his career and has spent a big chunk of the past 2½ months working with him in California. Whitfield raved about his competitiveness. “This wasn’t just merely a set of routes that he was just going to go through and throw,” Whitfield said. “It just feels like … life is riding on every pass with him.” Eight NFL general managers and eight head coaches were among the group, including Texans’ general manager Rick Smith and coach Bill O’Brien. Houston has the top overall pick in the draft. Smith and

O’Brien liked what they saw from Manziel, but both cautioned that this is just one step in a long process. “He made the throws that you look for and that you wanted to see, so it was good,” Smith said. “It’s just a part of it, and it was impressive.” Manziel, who started at A&M for two seasons, planned to meet with several teams on Thursday afternoon after the workout. Several coaches were impressed that Manziel called all the NFL officials onto the field at the end of his workout to personally thank them for coming. “College Station’s a little bit of a tricky spot to get to,” he said. “For me to call those guys up, just wanted to speak on my behalf as well as the six guys behind me and thank them for coming out.”

Pistorius on the line now Paralympic champ expected to testify soon at murder trial By Christopher Torchia The Associated Press

JOHANNESBURG — Before he killed his girlfriend, Oscar Pistorius broke barriers, and the world embraced him for it. The doubleamputee runner challenged the athletic establishment and secured the right to race on his carbon fiber blades in the 2012 Olympics. A Paralympic champion, he won races by infinitesimal margins, describing the pressure of competition as “nail-biting” and “nervewracking.” It’s all on the line now for Pistorius, who dug deep as an athlete and reveled in global accolades that flowed in spite of, and because of, the obstacles posed by his disability. The man, who racing commentators said was slow from the starting block, is expected to testify soon at his murder trial. The defense begins its case Friday after four weeks of prosecution-led testimony. Pistorius said this week that it was a tough time and there is “a lot ahead of us,” mindful perhaps that the impression he makes on Judge Thokozile Masipa, who will deliver a verdict, could mean as much for his fate as disputed testimony from experts, neighbors and acquaintances. He faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted of premeditated murder for killing lover Reeva Steenkamp. Besides acquittal, some legal analysts point to another option — conviction on a lesser murder or homicide charge that could still jail him for years. Pistorius shot Steenkamp, a 29-year-old model, through the closed door of a toilet cubicle in his home in the night, later saying he mistook her for an intruder; prosecutors allege he killed her after an argument. Their portrait of Pistorius as a gun enthusiast with a hairtrigger temper clashes with his glowing image before the Feb. 14, 2013, shooting. So far, he has been a spectator in his trial, alone in the dock. The athlete dressed neatly and spoke softly, if at all, during adjournments. His mood and body language, however, shifted from the cool focus of note-taking and brief powwows with his lawyers to apparent

anguish, evident in tears and retching during graphic testimony about Steenkamp’s death. Andrew Flier, a criminal defense attorney in Los Angeles who has followed the Pistorius trial, said his clients often ask him: “‘How should Oscar I testify? How should I act in Pistorius court?’ ” Flier said he always wants his defendants to “look nice and not say a word” when not on the witness stand, and to be composed when on it. Becoming emotional can backfire if it is “too dramatic,” he said, though he acknowledged that it could be perceived as natural for Pistorius to show grief because he was close to the woman he killed. Judge Masipa, a former crime reporter who will judge the credibility of Pistorius as a witness, is a remote figure on the dais, allowing lawyers to question witnesses and intervening only occasionally. In court breaks, all stand in silence as the red-robed judge walks slowly down a few steps, her hand resting on a banister, and leaves the chamber. Prosecutors have alleged Pistorius was reckless, manipulative and downright scary to Steenkamp in the months before he killed her. It’s hard to reconcile that dark sketch with the charismatic runner who once talked engagingly about racing goals and preparation, track gait and body torque, and the prosthetic technology that propelled his dazzling career. He soared on a groundswell of admiration. In 2008, while trying in vain to qualify for the Beijing Olympics, he appeared at an Italian event with a T-shirt with “Olympic Dream” on the front and “A winner is only a dreamer who hasn’t given up” on the back. Pistorius, who has Italian ancestry, had a European base in Italy. The singer Mariella Nava paid homage to him in her song “La mia specialita,” and he appeared on the Italian version of Dancing with the Stars, winning the maximum points. A version of the Abba song “The Winner Takes It All” played while he performed. Pistorius often said he defined himself by his abilities, rather than his disability. Italian journalist Candido Cannavo described Pistorius as a symbol who “gives courage to the world.”


Softball: Pojoaque Valley routs Capital The New Mexican

Angelica Romero threw a complete game, striking out six and allowing only three hits as the Pojoaque Valley softball team routed visiting Pojoaque 11 Capital 11-1 in a nondistrict game on Thursday Capital 1 afternoon in Jacona. Romero (3-1) walked just one batter. One of the Lady Jaguar hits came in the top of the first inning, a seemingly harmless single. That single became a run moments later when the following batter struck out looking. Pojoaque’s catcher tried to pick the runner off first, but instead sent the ball sailing down the line and into right field. The runner circled the bases, giving Capital a quick 1-0 lead. “Without that, Angelica throws a shutout,” said Ricky DeHerrera, Pojoaque’s head coach. The Elkettes (4-4) tied it with a run in their half of the first, then took the lead with a six-run third. They added five more in the fourth. Pojoaque had only eight hits in the game, taking advantage of four Capital (2-4) errors. Gabby Gonzales and Christian Chavez

each went 2-for-3 for the Elkettes. Gonzales had a double, triple and four runs batted in while Abrianna Gipson went 2-for-2 with a walk, double, two runs scored and a pair of RBI. Pojoaque returns to action Tuesday when it opens District 2AAA play with a doubleheader at Las Vegas Robertson. Santa Fe HigH 6, Raton 3 The Demonettes rallied from a 2-1 deficit in the top of the fourth inning to pull out a nondistrict road win just before the start of the District 2AAAA season. Senior infielder Mykala Porras went 3-for-4 at the plate while fellow senior infielder Jackie Martinez hit a solo home run in the sixth inning for the Demonettes (5-3). Santa Fe High sophomore pitcher Alex Russell threw a complete game with seven strikeouts. The Demonettes now plays Española Valley in the district opener on April 2. “We have some things we need to work on, but I think we’re ready,” Santa Fe High head coach Keith Richards said. BASEBALL MCCuRdy 24, MoRa 7 In Española, an early deficit gave way to a conga line of baserunners making their

way home as the host Bobcats (1-4) picked up their first win of the season. McCurdy trailed 3-0 in the first inning and 4-2 heading to the bottom of the third. That’s when the Bobcats erupted for consecutive 11-run frames to put it away via the mercy rule in the fifth. “Things are coming together; the team’s getting it together,” said McCurdy head coach Robert DeVargas. Lefty Lucas Zamora started on the mound for the Bobcats, but he wasn’t around for the finish as Dennis Padilla (1-1) spelled him after the first. Padilla worked the remaining four frames, striking out four while allowing four hits and four runs. Zamora, Chris Serrano and Derrick Valdez each went 3-for-4 at the plate combining for 11 runs scored. Serrano drove in three runs while Jordan Sanchez had two hits, one of which was an inside the park grand slam. McCurdy will visit Pecos on Saturday in a nondistrict doubleheader. St. MiCHael’S 4, BeRnalillo 3 The Horsemen scored three run in the fifth inning to overcome a 2-0 deficit to the Spartans in a nondistrict game at Christian Brothers Athletic Complex. St. Michael’s (9-4) pitcher Carlos Acosta picked up the win after pitching six innings with five strikeouts and two earned runs.

Soccer: Team must practice off campus Continued from Page B-5 too, can play at the college level. “He’s now opening up a path that I hope other kids will follow,” Galindo said. “It’s an accomplishment for the whole school, really. With him, all of us feel that we are succeeding.” The school can also claim that it created a college-level player without the use of its own facilities. The soccer teams held their practices and home games at the Municipal Recreation Complex, which was described as a “minefield” by Galindo for its many potholes and dirt spots. But with all the adversities aside, Lozoya said Galindo made him and the rest of the

Galindo said that Lozoya’s work ethic and determination will help him be successful in college. team believe that they could compete with its field-owning opponents. “Mazatl created a program here and he put it in our heads that anything can be possible,” Lozoya said. “He has always implemented effort over talent. It is an honor to play at Eastern after playing at Monte del Sol for this man. He changed my way of viewing soccer. We’ve showed that it doesn’t take having a good facility

and having a nice field.” Galindo said that Lozoya’s work ethic and determination will help him be successful in college, but he still has a lot of room for improvement. “At that level, you have to be very, very fast and you have to be sharp,” Galindo said. “If he continues to develop his technique, he can actually have that fast physical and mental reaction.”

Cheer: Basketball win whets their appetites Continued from Page B-5 said many of the players said they’d be in The Pit supporting their quest to win it all. “They’ve been at our other events, and obviously, we’ve been at theirs,” Branch said. “So we both help each other to motivate each other.” Not that the cheer team needed much motivation. The Demonettes came into last year’s competition having won a second straight District 2AAAA title and looked to be the favorite to win the AAAA title. But they weren’t as clean as they needed to be in their routine, and many of the seniors said it was a blow to hear Santa Fe High take third

place in last year’s event in the Santa Ana Star Center. When the seniors on the team saw that this year’s event was in The Pit, they welcomed the change in venue. They hadn’t had much luck in the Star Center, with the third being their best finish during the four-year run at the arena. “Santa Ana has a bad vibe for us,” said senior Natasha Smith. “So coming to The Pit is a good thing and it’s exciting. We can make a new vibe there, maybe some good vibes.” If anybody is going to set the tone for that, it will be the seniors. Some of them have been competing together since elementary school, and

many of them were a part of the Santa Fe Spirit All-Stars club, coached by current Demonettes head coach Christie Baca. They make up the core of the Demonettes leadership, and Baca said the seniors have done their best to lead by example. “The seniors are like big sisters to the little ones,” Baca said. “They encourage them to do their best. And these are athletes we’re talking about. They are gymnasts, they tumble and do major stunts. And all of the seniors help out the younger ones with their stunts and encourage them. They work really well together.” Baca is just one part of a

coaching staff that has developed a long relationship with the team. Assistant coach Gina Branch, Marissa’s mother, has held that role for the past four years at the school. She identified one of the themes that the Demonettes have sued for motivation and it’s a familiar one on the hardwood — “Unfinished Business.” “That, and ‘One team, one dream,’ ” Gina Branch said. “We have more of an attitude that they really want to take state this year.” Two weeks ago gave the Demonettes a taste of what it can feel like. Now, they simply need the hardware to make it all come true.

Padilla: May have to break in new horse Continued from Page B-5 Still, it’s been a heck of ride for the pair. Padilla has a basket full of ribbons and several pieces of hardware thanks to Annie. They almost won the Denver Livestock Show in January, but Padilla said “operator error” led them to finish third. What matters more, though, are the memories Annie has provided. Like the time when she put a clump of dry grass in her mouth to eat as Padilla prepared to take her out for the trail portion of the ranch horse competition. He raced over to get it out of her mouth, wor-

ried that it might impact the duo’s score. It turned out Annie wasn’t the only one who found the grass inviting. “We were just the first ones to go,” Padilla said. Padilla recalled their competition in Denver, when Annie carefully stepped over the bottom of a gate even though it had no impact over her performance. It had been ingrained into her not to step on bars, which is a no-no in the ranch trail portion of the event. “You could see her thinking her way through it and working out her own problems,” Padilla said. “You can’t imagine how

close to your heart an animal can get when they start to help you.” But Padilla, who was the second-oldest competitor in Houston at 62, is confronted with the possibility that he will have to find another horse to break in, and learn the ropes with. He looked at other horses in Houston, and the sticker price on them was shocking. Try $100,000 to start for a good quarter horse. Padilla bought Annie for a mere $1,500. It might be the best investment he ever made.

The Gators had UCLA running up and down the court so much that Adams couldn’t even hit the rim with a jumper

despite having an open look at the basket. Wilbekin finished off the run with a three-point play that had the Gators solidly in control, up 66-55 with 5:34 left. “He hit two big shots down the stretch,” Anderson said. “That’s what you expect out of your senior point guard. He’s been here in the Sweet 16 four years. He made big shots.” For all the talk of Florida’s stingy defense, UCLA opened the game blocking the Gators’ first two shots. The Bruins only blocked two more shots the rest of the game.

Dayton: Stanford’s post play wasn’t enough Continued from Page B-5 Johnny Dawkins said. “That’s the best way I can put it.” No. 10 Stanford (23-13) had the superior post play, but it wasn’t enough. Chasson Randle led the Cardinal with 21 points, but shot 5 of 21 from the field. Dwight Powell added 17 and Stefan Nastic — who fouled out with more than five minutes left — had 15. Dayton, the last remaining of the six Atlantic 10 teams in the field of 68, plays Florida on Saturday for a trip to the Final Four. Sibert finished 7 of 12 from the field, including 4 of 9 from 3-point range. He had plenty of help, including from Pollard, a 6-foot-6 guard who continually got to the basket and helped the Flyers stretch their

lead in the first half. “People have been doubting us and not giving us a lot of credit,” Sibert said. “I know these guys. I know what coach wants. We all want to win. At the end of the day we all want to be considered winners.” Pollard was averaging two points per game, but Miller didn’t hesitate to give him big minutes once he got hot. “This guy’s a big-time winner,” Miller said. “He’s not afraid of anything.” Devin Oliver scored 12 points and Matt Kavanaugh added 10. Dayton’s bench had a 34-2 scoring advantage over Stanford. The Flyers were good in just about every facet, shooting 48.3 percent (28 of 58) and dishing 19 assists on 28 field goals. They made just about everything they threw at the basket early. Scoochie Smith’s corner 3-pointer put the Flyers ahead 15-13

early and Stanford’s Powell — who averages nearly 14 points per game — was quickly banished to the bench with two fouls. Foul trouble was an early theme, and a much bigger problem for Stanford. The Cardinal rely on a six-man rotation. When the Flyers would lose a man to foul trouble, they simply replaced him with someone who was just as capable. Things went from bad to worse for Stanford late in the first half. The Cardinal fell behind by double-digits and Dawkins was called for a technical foul. Dawkins said it was the right call. “I was just more or less trying to get my team going,” Dawkins said. “I thought we were losing momentum, we had already burned a timeout and it was a situation where I wanted to get our guys fired up.” It didn’t work.

Arizona holds off San Diego State Johnson made his first basket a couple minutes later and carried the Wildcats across the finish line after they trailed much of the second half. ANAHEIM, Calif. — Nick Johnson scored all of Arizona coach Sean Miller joined his brother his 15 points in the last 2:45, after missing his first Archie in the final eight.

Warning: Pranks ahead

for and by teens


This ‘Nut’ does the job

It’s almost April Fools’ Day — get ready for hijinks

By Raina Wellman Generation Next


By Tilcara Webb Generation Next


n the United States, April Fools’ Day — Tuesday this year — is a day of pranking friends, family and, if possible, the public. It is still considered a day of hoaxes and trickery wherein shenanigans and mischief-making must be tolerated. The “holiday” has been observed in some way throughout the world for some time. While its origins may not be clear, some speculate that pranks have been pulled around the beginning of April since 1582, when the Gregorian calendar was established and people in Britain and France changed the first day of the year from April 1 to Jan. 1. Those who did not transition to the new calendar were called April fools and sent on “fool’s errands,” which people may know today as “a wild goose chase.” Before that time, ancient Romans celebrated a festival of rejoicing called Hilaria in late March, while India still observes Holi, a spring festival of colors and water-infused hijinks. Here in America, companies and corporations may prank the public with fake notices of new products or events. For instance, in 1996, Taco Bell allegedly bought the Liberty Bell to help decrease the national debt — or so it was advertised in six different newspapers across the country. Recently, Google has released false new products or apps, including Google Nose, a computer scent simulator. American Eagle spread word of its new “spray on jeans,” and the website subscription provider Hulu has displayed fake TV shows on its website. Historically, the first commercial prank product may have been sneezing powder,

invented by a man named Soren Sorenson Adams, who later fabricated itching powder among other humorous inventions. In 1910, the Franco American Novelty Co. began releasing the whoopee cushion and fake vomit. Today, the Shine Gallery in Los Angeles is home to vintage novelties from decades of pranking. Owner Bernie Shine collects these items, and in his store you can find classic whoopee cushions, hand joy-buzzers and snake-in-a-can gags, among other items. In downtown Santa Fe, Doodlet’s sells similar novelties ranging from water-squirting cameras (try to get your iPhone to do that) and a “get off the phone” excuse noise machine. Owner Lisa Young said, “We sell happiness essentials.” She said that in her opinion, pranks are pulled to poke fun at family members and friends in a goodnatured way. Kids today don’t need April Fools’ Day to engage in monkeyshines. Asked why he likes pulling pranks, Santa Fe High School student Isayah Jacobs said, “I think it’s a really cool way for people to express themselves and it shows their creativity.” He and friend Robert Garcia often plan April Fools’ Day pranks. Among their past successes — which not everyone will find amusing — filling a school with stink bombs and spraying fire extinguisher foam in school bathrooms. They once left a friend in a hotel lobby while he was asleep, and they also cut a hole in a new trampoline to take the bounce out of it. Capital High School student Jonathan Trujillo said he doesn’t need April Fools’ Day to pull such antics: “Why does it have to be a certain day that you have to fool someone? You could just do it everyday.” At, a website devoted to gags,

“Kim,” a company spokesperson, said, “I don’t think teenagers will ever stop pranking anyone.” But, as Young noted, there is a big difference between staging a prank and committing a crime. Garcia and fellow Santa Fe High School student Nieves Vigil-Trujillo said that pranking can and does go too far when it results in someone getting hurt. “The intent is to get a good laugh out of it,” Garcia said. Speaking by phone from his museum in Los Angeles, Shine said he believes “pranks have become a lot more sophisticated” and that today they may involve a lot more liabilities: “The exploding cigar sounds good in theory until it burns someone’s favorite sports coat, and then it’s suddenly not quite so funny.” Certain pranks can cross the line into illegal acts. Celina Westervelt, spokeswoman for the Santa Fe Police Department, said the recent vandalism and destruction caused at the city’s youth shelter might have started as a prank, but thousands of dollars in damage was done to the site. Nationwide, a man in Oklahoma got in trouble last Halloween when he created a couple of realistic dead bodies for his driveway, and recently a girl in Arkansas got shot after she and friends dumped a bunch of trash and leaves on a neighbor’s lawn as a joke. So as April Fools’ Day nears, please practice restraint and don’t get yourself arrested — or worse. Because it can be a day that promises a lot of fun and laughter. And stay on the lookout for phony commercial ads, squirting cameras, joy buzzers and anything else that even remotely smells like a prank.

What is the best prank you ever pulled?

Some time ago, my comedy-loving father put a copy of Ted L. Nancy’s Letters From a Nut in my hands, and it’s still something I turn to when I need a humor fix. Jerry Seinfeld, in his foreword, writes, “It’s very rare for people to laugh out loud at television or the printed word even though they may be enjoying it very much.” But the humor in this book is so absurd and occasionally stupid that I have found myself actually laughing out loud. As Seinfeld writes, “You cannot not laugh at these letters.” The book is a series of letters between Nancy and corporations, businesses, celebrities, politicians and others. Each is filled with quirky humor that is provided in part by Nancy’s penchant for providing too much information. His various full-page letters include his compliments to the “EXEMPLARY” behavior of the cab-stand callers, his business proposal for six-day underwear, and his request to the Ritz-Carlton of Chicago to dress up as a ripe banana for business meetings in its bar and restaurant. Also notable is his request to bring his own ice-making machine to the Disneyland Hotel. The way these professionals attempt to respond with authority and pleasant decorum to his unusual and relatively insane requests lends to the book’s overall humor. Part of the appeal of this book, which was first published in the mid-1990s, is that the art of letter writing is fading away even now. Nancy was recently unmasked as humorist Barry Marder, who also writes under the name Ed Broth. Under any name, anyone wishing to find an entertaining read will be struck with laughter reading his Letters From a Nut. It is nutty — and very funny.

A puzzling ‘Thank You’ By Austin Tyra

Generation Next

Cheri Ibes, Jamestown High School, Jamestown, N.D. “I did a prank that I forgot I did. At a reunion, all my friends said I’d done it. Apparently, I put a dead badger in our high school drinking fountain. I’m an expert pranker.”

Deeda Hull, Willistone Northampton Academy, Easthampton, Mass. “Short sheeting the bed is really fun. What you do is undo a bed and remake it by folding the sheet in half so it looks normal, then whoever tries to get in the bed can’t get in.”

Keir Careccio The Agakhan Secondary School, Kampala, Uganda “The best was to put a stuffed 19-foot-long crocodile in an obnoxious American tourist’s room. I was in Kafue National Park in Zambia.”

Carol Cooper Thomas Jefferson High School, Alexandria, Va. “I put peanut butter on the door knob to my bedroom so that my sister, when she was baby-sitting me, couldn’t come in.”

Eric Crites, South Eugene High School, Eugene, Ore. “I can say that when I was in eighth grade, in my algebra class we had a teacher that was really mean, so we would turn the desks to face the back of the room.”


Mary Lawler, Notre Dame Academy, Boston “I would jump on the bed at my cousins’ house, and one time, my sister and I broke the bed boards. So, we put them back together, and then when my cousins sat down on the bed, it collapsed.”

Roxanne Seagraves, Roosevelt High, Lima, Peru “I had a teacher who was really afraid of bugs, and I told the most annoying student in the class — the goody-two-shoes — that the teacher loved when [she] brought bugs to her in jars. So every day, the student would bring a new bug, and the teacher would turn green. And I would sit there and laugh.”


The highs and lows of being a clown I n anticipation of April Fools’ Day on Tuesday, my Generation Next editor asked me to write a My View about “being funny.” I all too eagerly stepped into this trap, but now, some 13 hours after my deadline has passed, desperation has set in. Who would have thought that being amusing on cue would be so difficult? Wiser men and women than me — in other words, the rest of the Generation Next staff — clearly understood the challenge. Only now am I realizing that writing humorously about being humorous is the ultimate lose-lose proposition: The author will either come across as pathetically unfunny, a narcissistic ass or, worst of all, both. I have a sinking feeling that I have already fallen into the third category in less than 150 words. Still, over the past couple of years, I have gained a fair degree of notoriety at my school

for being a wise guy — in the comedic, not Mafioso, sense — after years of straight-laced, serious behavior. I find that being funny is similar to being a meteorologist in that almost all humor is based on the observation of patterns, like tracking a low-pressure system on radar. Jokes are like daily forecasts, sometimes hitting the mark, but more often than not — as in my case — being just off enough to make the audience uncomfortable. Just like a TV weatherman warning of potential rain, sleet and snow from the same storm, a comedian can always cop out with a tame knock-knock joke. Alternatively, a joker can produce a blizzard of profanity. Just watch Bob Saget in action. Or a comic may tell bad gags louder than everyone else. That works for Dane Cook. However, I’ve found that combining the Saget and Cook techniques causes

observers to question my sobriety. While I’m far from mastering the art of humor, I’ve found a number of perks to being a sometimes class clown. My ability to observe people’s mannerisms, speech patterns and habits and translating their meaning is infinitely better than it was three or four years ago. I’ve made a lot of friends and a fair number of enemies through comedy. Most importantly, being funny — if indeed I am — has added an element of joy to even the most tedious and ridiculous situations that I’ve found myself in, situations that may have frustrated me in the past. I guess it does pay to be a wise guy, at least most of the time.

Thank You And You’re Welcome is the literary debut of recording artist and rapper Kanye West, with help from J. Sakiya Sandifer. No, this is not a joke, and yes, that is West’s true name. I’m not sure the 52 pages within the covers can be called a book. It is more like a small spiral notebook filled with quotes, some of which are not even originated by West. These quotes are then outlined in epileptic colors, sometimes accompanied by a paragraph or two expanding their meaning. For instance, on one page we see the quote, “Never complain without a solution” written in bright red, wherein on the very next page Kayne explains, “I’m often seen as complaining in situations when I lose. I see it more as an explanation of why I should have won.” The book has no pattern in terms of how it delivers its information. On some pages the explanation may be long and seemingly well thought out, while on the very next page the entirety may take no more than eight words and zero explanation. This became annoying to me very quickly. I also couldn’t help but notice that the book takes full visual advantage of the reader by sprawling the various words all over the pages in different colors, sizes, and places. I must admit — through gritted teeth — that there are a few quotes that may have intellectual value and thus provide some benefit, including, “Never justify your behavior with the wrongs of others.” But I would have taken the advice much more seriously had it been printed in a book not written by Kanye West.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH You will move forward with clarity and direction. You know what is doable under the present circumstances. Tonight: Meet up with friends. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH You could be exhausted by the neediness of someone who is close to you. Perhaps it is time for a minivacation or a weekend away. Tonight: Recognize that you have an audience observing you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Realize what a weekend away could do for you. You might want to mellow out to great music. Others simply might need to find themselves surrounded by nature. Tonight: Let stress fly away. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH You have strong ideas, especially when it comes to maximizing the good times. It appears as though someone close to you also has a great idea. Tonight: Opt for togetherness. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH You might feel as if you have lost control of a situation and want to regain it. Unfortunately, the best you can do at the moment is to let others do what they need to do. Tonight: Be playful.



Man too stressed for fun date night

Dear Annie: I’m in my early 50s and have been married to “Ralph” for two years. At first, he was attentive and romantic, sending flowers and writing cards. We went on frequent weekend trips where we would focus only on each other. In the past year, Ralph’s job responsibilities tripled, and so did his stress levels. His mother has had numerous hospitalizations, and his teenage son began experimenting with drugs and alcohol. As a result, our marriage and sex life have suffered. We still have a date night, but we cannot get away for a weekend because there is no one to leave his son with. Most of our “dates” involve Ralph cracking his knuckles while I try to carry on a lighthearted conversation. Last night, Ralph said that even though we are terribly busy, we should take what few moments we can find to have sex. I told him that, like most women, I respond better if there is some romance attached, and that I need us to really connect emotionally. I desperately want him to look into my eyes in a way that lets me know he is still crazy about me. But Ralph says he is unable to turn off his stress and that married people should be able to have a few minutes of sex without worrying about my “soap opera view of marriage.” He thinks it’s immature of me to expect wining and dining before sex. I offered to meet him halfway. I still need the occasional connection. He calls that “high maintenance” and says my ideas are unrealistic. He is very different from the loving and funny man I married. He absolutely refuses counseling. Am I wrong here? — High Maintenance in Ponte Vedra Beach Dear Ponte: This is not about right and wrong. It’s about expectations, adjustments and effort. The flowers and notes are lovely, but it’s unrealistic to expect Ralph to continue these thoughtful gestures when his brain is overloaded

with worries about his son, his mother and his job. Ralph also wants a connection, but like many men, to him that means physical closeness. He doesn’t need romantic gestures, so he thinks you are being frivolous. Here’s your compromise: Tell him that once a week, you need him to look into your eyes and say how much you mean to him. With sincerity. In return, you will stop nursing a sense of neglect that he no longer focuses on your romantic desires as much as he did before. If he cannot manage even this much, we fear that the romantic personality was only a facade. Dear Annie: When attending a celebration (wedding, bar mitzvah, etc.), I look forward to conversing with friends and family. That desire is repeatedly sabotaged by the band playing at ear-damaging levels. I’m only 50, yet find myself bringing earplugs so I don’t get a headache or start to go deaf. Does the music have to be so loud just for dancing? Don’t the hosts know that this level of volume diminishes the enjoyment of their celebration? — Please Turn It Down Dear Please: We’ve mentioned this before. With studies showing that excessively loud music can cause early and severe hearing loss, we are surprised people still find this a good idea. If you are screaming to be heard over the music, it’s too loud. Use earplugs or walk out. The band will pipe down only if the hosts request it. Dear Annie: This is about “N.Y.,” the 35-year-old man who thinks his mother is controlling because she puts her arm across him in the front seat if she comes to a sudden stop. I confess that I put my right arm across ANYONE who is in the front seat if I stop short. This guy needs more than counseling. He needs a swift kick in the butt for being such an absolutely insufferable jerk. — M., The Villages, Fla.

Sheinwold’s bridge

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH An associate cares far more about a joint effort or project than you realize. This person might not understand what is happening within you. Tonight: Take a break with some friends. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH You’ll have a better chance of discovering what is happening with a loved one by saying less and not being so stern or withdrawn. Tonight: A conversation takes a swift turn. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Focus on your domestic life, know what you want and move past a difficult situation. Take it one day at a time and express more enthusiasm. Tonight: At home. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You might consider taking some time off with a friend or close relative. Your words will trigger others’ imaginations. Tonight: Out and about.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH Your ability to move past what others often resist might need to emerge with a money matter. Tonight: Say “yes.” PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH You could be taken aback, as your imagination seems to come up with one creative idea after the other. Tonight: Start the weekend right. Jacqueline Bigar
