Court records detail last hours of woman’s life By Phaedra Haywood The New Mexican

Eusemia Rodriguez’s body was already ravaged from drug-and-alcohol abuse when she was booked into the Santa Fe County jail last year on charges of assaulting her boyfriend.

Less than 24 hours later, the mother of three was dead. An autopsy report listed the cause of her death as chronic alcoholism. But according to medical experts hired by an attorney for her estate, Rodriguez died from treatable withdrawal symptoms. And fellow inmates interviewed in the case said the 32-year-old begged jail officials for medical attention for hours before dying alone in her cell July 3, 2012.

The county settled with Rodriguez’s estate earlier this year for $500,000, but it has provided few other details about her death. A spokesman for the county confirmed the deputy warden, Mark Caldwell, had spoken with Rodriguez on the day she died but denied she had asked Caldwell for help. Written transcripts of interviews with fellow inmates and other documents paint a disturbing picture of

Rodriguez’s final hours. Rodriguez was booked on charges of battery on a household member around 2 a.m. July 3, 2012. According to news reports from the time, she and her boyfriend had been fighting about her addiction. “I recognized her when we were in booking,” said Yesenia Loya, one of three women who were interviewed

WESTERN GOVERNORS WILDLIFE MAPS Habitat mapping: Governors in 16 states are unveiling a high-tech wildlife habitat mapping project that they hope will encourage economic development across the West while protecting the region’s environmental treasures. Guide for developers: The Western Governors’ Association wants to make it easier to chart paths across large landscapes where developers can expect the least regulatory resistance and threat of litigation. Connecting states: The database will connect 16 Western states from California and Alaska to Montana and Oklahoma with a first-of-its-kind online system of colorful GIS maps displaying wildlife habitat, wetlands and other valuable natural resources — much of it detailed down to squaremile increments.

RENO, Nev. overnors in 16 states unveiled a high-tech wildlife habitat mapping project Thursday that they hope will encourage economic development across the West while protecting the region’s environmental treasures — an ambitious effort that’s winning praise from conservationists and the energy industry. The Western Governors’ Association wants to make it easier to chart paths across large landscapes where developers can expect the least regulatory resistance and threat of litigation as


they draft plans to build highways, dig gold mines and erect power lines, pipelines or wind farms. Five years in the making, the database will connect 16 Western states from California and Alaska to Montana and Oklahoma with a first-of-its-kind online system of colorful GIS maps displaying wildlife habitat, wetlands and other valuable natural resources — much of it detailed down to square-mile increments. The Crucial Habitat Assessment Tool, or CHAT, provides layers of data that rate the resources on a scale of one to six, from most to least “crucial.” Individual states determine those priorities based on their information about such

In what it considers a major compromise, Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration is putting its weight behind a bill to provide intensive interventions for New Mexico students who do not have grade-level reading skills in kindergarten, first and second grades. Like previous reading-intervention bills, this one calls for third-graders to be held back if they are not reading at grade level. But no students would be held back before the 2016 school year to give intervention policies, which would begin next year, a chance to have an impact. Public Education Secretary-designate Hanna Skandera unveiled the plan Thursday before the Legislative Education Study Committee. Sen. Gay Kernan, R-Hobbs, introduced the draft bill, titled “Academic Success Through Remediation Act,” on Skandera’s behalf. Kernan and Rep. Mary Helen Garcia, D-Las Cruces, are backing the bill, Kernan and Skandera said. So far, the governor has failed to push her reading intervention and remediation plan through the Legislature, despite repeated efforts. And on Thursday, some Democratic lawmakers expressed opposition to the latest plan — which, Skandera noted, has bipartisan support. Rep. Mimi Stewart, D-Albuquerque, called the retention portion of the bill “a poison pill that nobody will budge on. And I admit, I won’t budget, either.” Kernan pointed out a number of exceptions to the retention bill that would allow parents to petition principals to promote their child — such as when a

THE NEW MEXICAN Friday, December 13, 2013

NATION&WORLD NEW YORK — Many Americans are watching the annual holiday spending ritual from the sidelines this year. Money is still tight for some. Others are fed up with commercialism of the holidays. Still others are waiting for bigger bargains. And people like Lark-Marie Anton Menchini are more thoughtful about their purchases. The New York public relations executive says in the past she’d buy her children up to eight Christmas gifts each, but this year they’re getting three apiece. The leftover money is going toward their college savings. “We told them Santa is … being very conscious of how many gifts he puts on his sleigh,” Menchini, 36, says. Despite an improving economy, most workers are not seeing meaningful wage increases. And some of those who can splurge say the brash commercialism around the holidays — many more stores are opening for business on Thanksgiving — is a turnoff.

U.N. inspectors confirm Syria chemical attack UNITED NATIONS — Chemical weapons were probably used in four locations in Syria this year, in addition to the confirmed attack near Damascus in August that forced the government to abandon its secret chemical stockpile, U.N. inspectors said in a report released Thursday. The experts, led by Swedish professor Ake Sellstrom, examined seven alleged chemical weapons attacks and said it lacked information to corroborate the allegations at two locations. The inspectors’ limited mandate barred them from identifying whether the government or opposition fighters were responsible for any of the attacks. Thursday’s report said evidence indicated chemical weapons were probably used in Khan al Assal outside Aleppo, Jobar in Damascus’ eastern suburbs, Saraqueb near Idlib in the northwest, and Ashrafiah Sahnaya in the Damascus countryside. In two cases, it found “signatures of Sarin.” The government and opposition accused each other of using chemical weapons at Khan al Assal and the report said none of the parties in Syria denied their use in the village. The allegations of chemical weapons use at Jobar and Ashrafiah Sahnaya were made by the Syrian government, while Britain and France raised the allegations about Saraqueb.

States exhibit health coverage disparities JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Residents in some parts of the U.S. are signing up for health care coverage at a significantly greater rate than others through the new online insurance marketplaces now operating in every state. The discrepancy may trace back to the political leanings of their elected leaders. Newly released federal figures show more people are picking private insurance plans or being routed to Medicaid programs in states with Democratic leaders who have fully embraced the federal health care law than in states where Republican elected officials have derisively rejected what they call “Obamacare.” On one side of the political divide are a dozen mostly Democratic leaning states,

including California, Minnesota and New York. They have both expanded Medicaid for lower-income adults and started their own health insurance exchanges for people to shop for federally subsidized private insurance. On the other side are two dozen conservative states, such as Texas, Florida and Missouri. They have both rejected the Medicaid expansion and refused any role in running an online insurance exchange, leaving that entirely to the federal government.

Wallis Simpson’s jewels sell at London auction LONDON — Sotheby’s says jewels and precious possessions once belonging to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor have fetched 620,125 pounds — $1.01 million — in a London auction. One highlight from the sale of items regarding Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson was a sapphire and diamond Cartier bracelet which sold for 230,500 pounds — beating a top-end estimate it would fetch 180,000 pounds. A coral, emerald and diamond choker sold for 110,500 pounds. Cigarette cases given to Edward by his mother, Queen Mary, sold for 5,000 pounds. Bryony Meredith of Sotheby’s said Thursday the results demonstrate a longstanding fascination with the Duke and Duchess of Windsor — “their lives, their lifestyle and their exceptional taste” — and their love story. Edward abdicated in 1936 so he could marry Simpson, an American.

Hawaii plane crash fuels Obama ‘birther’ theories When President Barack Obama marched into the White House briefing room with his Hawaiian birth certificate in April 2011, he said: “I know that there’s going to be a segment of people for which, no matter what we put out, this issue will not be put to rest.” How right he was. The release of his longform birth certificate did not eliminate the “birther” movement, which contends that Obama was born in Kenya and is therefore ineligible to be president. Although conspiracists had demanded its release, once he

Ancient statue will be returned to Cambodia PHNOM PENH, Cambodia — Sotheby’s auction house in New York has agreed to return an ancient statue to Cambodia, ending a heated legal battle that began more than a year ago. The agreement, signed Thursday by lawyers for Sotheby’s, the consignor and the U.S. government, states that the auction house will transfer the statue to a representative of Cambodia in New York within 90 days. Sotheby’s and the consignor, a Belgian woman named Decia Ruspoli di Poggio Suasa, “have voluntarily determined, in the interests of promoting cooperation and collaboration with respect to cultural heritage, to arrange for the statue to be transferred to the Kingdom of Cambodia,” the agreement says. The statue was pulled from an auction in 2011 after Cambodia expressed concerns that it had been looted from the country’s Koh Ker temple complex in the 1970s.

made public the document it merely shifted the debate. Some birthers accused Obama of forgery, while others turned their focus to his college transcripts in hopes of proving that he had applied for admission as a foreign student. (He had not.) And this week, birthers seized on a plane crash off Hawaii that killed one person: state public health Director Loretta Fuddy, the woman who verified the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate. Skeptics turned to social media Thursday to suggest that Obama had played some role in Fuddy’s death. Twitter posts included: “The WH tying up loose ends?” “What did she really know?” and “R.I.P. Loretta Fuddy — we’ll know the truth about Barack Hussein Obama, regardless.” Donald Trump, a longtime doubter of Obama’s birthplace, also weighed in on Twitter: “How amazing, the State Health Director who verified copies of Obama’s ‘birth certificate’ died in plane crash today. All others lived.” That reaction didn’t surprise those who study conspiracy theorists.

New Mexican wire services

JOHANNESBURG — He was standing just a few feet from arguably the world’s most powerful leader, President Barack Obama, at the memorial service for arguably the world’s most beloved man, Nelson Mandela. It was the greatest moment of his career. But at some point during Tuesday’s memorial, Thamsanqa Jantjie says, the angels started to appear. His concentration drifted. A sense of deep panic gripped the sign language interpreter onstage. There were police and armed men all around who could kill him if he went off the rails. Voices started in his head. “What happened that day, I see angels come to the stadium,” Jantjie told The Associated Press in one of numerous news interviews that appeared Thursday. “I start realizing that the problem is here. And the problem, I don’t know the attack of this problem, how will it comes. Sometimes I react violent on that place. Sometimes I will see things that chase me. I was in a very difficult position,” he said. Fighting his internal crisis, he kept on gesturing numbly. Representatives of organizations for the deaf reacted angrily to his efforts, which were shown on television, saying his signing made no sense and he did not know the gesture for “South Africa” or “thank you.” Instead, they said, he mentioned prawns and rocking horses. Asked how often he became violent during his episodes of schizophrenia, Jantjie said “a lot,” the AP reported. He told the Daily Sun newspaper that he sometimes ran around in the streets naked and that his community had looked after him. Jantjie’s presence on stage with world leaders was one of several problems that compromised security at the memorial. In Washington, a top Secret Service official said Thursday that “Secret Service special agents are always in close proximity to the president whether he is overseas or in residence at the White House.” Edwin M. Donovan, deputy assistant director of the Secret Service, said that stage participants were the responsibility of the host organizing committee, as part of security measures agreed upon between the Secret Service and the South African government before the memorial service. But he declined to say anything else about those conversations. In South Africa, opposition leaders and critics called on the government to explain who hired Jantjie. Hendrietta Bogopane-Zulu, deputy minister for women, children and people with disabilities, said it had been a mistake to use Jantjie and that the owners of SA Interpreters, the company that provided him, had “vanished into thin air.” “It’s an interdepartmental responsibility,” she told the AP. “We are trying to establish what happened.” The 34-year-old interpreter told the Star newspaper that Tuesday’s episode might have been brought on by the momentous occasion or his happiness to be there. “There was nothing I could do,” he said. “I was alone in a very dangerous situation. I tried to control myself and not show the world what was going on. I am very sorry; it’s the situation I found myself in.” In interviews with South African journalists Thursday, he expressed deep embarrassment and concern that his children would see his humiliation. “Life is unfair. This illness is unfair,” he said. He said he sometimes reacted violently during episodes and that he once spent a year and seven months in a psychiatric institution, according to the AP. South African news reports said Jantjie once held a person hostage with a brick at the court where he works as an interpreter. He was also under investigation on suspicion of fraud, according to the reports.

Bipartisan budget deal rolls through House By Lisa Mascaro Chicago Tribune

WASHINGTON — The House overwhelmingly approved a budget deal Thursday designed to avert another government shutdown, a rare bipartisan accord that breaks with the tea-party-driven cycle of brinkmanship and could signal a new era of political pragmatism in Congress. The agreement represents a victory for House Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, who appears to have regained at least momentary control of his rebellious majority and turned back the super-sized influence of outside conservative groups. It also boosts Rep. Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis., a potential 2016 Republican presidential hopeful, who put his political capital on the line to craft the deal with his Democratic budgetary counterpart, Sen. Patty Murray of Washington state. Whether the spirit of detente will extend into next year is uncertain. Congress will need to give the $85 billion package final approval next month to avert a shutdown on Jan. 15, and will then turn to the debate over whether to raise the nation’s debt limit, a divisive issue. The measure was approved,

332 to 94, by most Republicans and Democrats over the objection of 62 Republicans, mostly hard-line conservatives, and 32 Democrats, who opposed it because it did not extend longterm unemployment insurance. The Senate is expected to pass the measure in coming days despite opposition from tea party Republicans and a possible no vote from the GOP minority leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. House conservatives have frequently bucked Boehner on budget deals, leading to the 16-day government shutdown in October that left Republicans badly damaged in polls. But most appeared to have lost their desire to push budget battles to the brink. Freshman Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C., said, “We’re going to look for the art of the possible.” Even as House leaders welcomed the breakthrough after months of dysfunction, they downplayed the modest deal from a Congress whose approval ratings have plummeted to all-time lows. “There were a lot of lessons learned over the course of this year, a lot of lessons learned over the course of the last three years, and I actually do feel like we’re in a better place,” Boehner

said. “We’re going to deal with these issues one at a time. The goal today is to get this budget agreement passed. We’ll deal with the debt ceiling when we get there.” Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the minority leader from San Francisco who delivered Democratic support to ensure passage, cautioned against reading too much into a deal that is so far from the sweeping agreement that both sides once sought. “Certainly, not achieving this would not have been a good signal,” Pelosi said, “but I don’t under- or overestimate the power of this one event today.” The $85 billion accord increases spending levels for the next two fiscal years beyond what conservatives wanted but less than Democrats had sought. It reverses $63 billion of the automatic “sequester” cuts that were opposed by all but the most conservative lawmakers. Those steep cuts were opposed by an unlikely alliance of defense hawks and Democrats who compromised to spare

both the Pentagon and social programs. To attract conservatives, the deal puts more than $22 billion toward deficit reduction and includes no new taxes. The increased spending is paid for with changes over the next decade that include new fees, such as on airline travel, and pension reductions for new federal employees and uninjured military retirees under 62. At the last minute, Republicans tacked on a provision to prevent a scheduled cut in pay for doctors who treat Medicare patients. Many Republicans have decided their efforts

should be directed elsewhere rather than revisiting the budget wars that have defined the last several years. “We can aim at Obamacare,” said Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas. “I’d sooner that be the discussion than about whether we’re giving in to a government shutdown.” Not all Republicans are on board with the shift toward pragmatism or Boehner’s pushback against the heavy-handed lobbying from conservative groups that has swayed lawmakers to block past deals. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., another potential presidential

contender in 2016, said the agreement “continues Washington’s irresponsible budgeting decisions by spending more money than the government takes in.” Passage was not without a last-minute floor battle: Democrats protested the exclusion of long-term unemployment insurance for 1.3 million jobless Americans, whose benefits expire on Dec. 28. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., vowed that extending jobless aid would be the first item for consideration when Congress resumes in the new year.

agreement with the county — the pathology report forwarded to the state Office of the Medical Investigator mistakenly listed her age as 50. The physician who conducted the autopsy on her body never questioned the figure, even noting that she “appeared to be her stated age” — though she was only 32 when she died.

According to a summary of her jail medical records compiled by Kathryn Wild, a registered nurse hired by Perrin, Rodriguez told intake personnel at the jail that she used hard liquor and heroin daily and became ill when she was not using. According to Wild’s summary, Rodriguez had reported similar habits when she was incarcerated in 2009, 2010 and 2011. A survey of her jail photos, beginning in 1998, show the progressive physical effects of Rodriguez’s habits. But according to Dr. William Noel, a doctor hired by Perrin to review Rodriguez’s medical records and autopsy reports, her body did not display the symptoms of liver disease severe enough to have caused her death. Rather, Noel, said, she died from withdrawal symptoms that could have been treated, had she received medical care. “To a high degree of medical certainty I believe that Ms. Rodriguez’ prolonged vomiting caused a severe electrolyte

Mapping: Plan provides common footprint Continued from Page A-1 things as the condition of the habitat and the individual species’ economic and recreational importance. “The governors’ intent back in 2008 really was to cater to industries within their states who need data while at the same time conserving the resources the states are blessed with and the governors are charged with preserving,” said Carlee Brown, policy manager for the Western Governors Association. “It’s going to provide that first look — a 30,000-foot view of the situation on the ground. It’s meant to be a starting point for states with different priorities and different resource needs to bring all their information together,” she told The Associated Press before the association announced details of the effort Thursday at its annual winter gathering in Las Vegas, Nev. “If I’m a transportation planner working in Walla Walla, Wash., and I want to modify a highway for safety concerns along the Washington-Oregon border, I can look at different routes and draw different lines to see what kind of crucial habitat I run into, and where

it ranks on the scale of one to six,” Brown said. The Energy Department provided a $3 million grant, and individual states contributed the time of mapping specialists the past three years to help gather, organize and input the information, said Joe Rassenfoss, communications director for the Western Governors Association. It’s expected to be especially helpful for projects that may encounter species of concern in multiple states, like the northern spotted owl in the Pacific Northwest, the sage grouse in the Great Basin or the prairie chicken in the Southwest. “It’s the one-stop shopping feature that is so powerful about CHAT,” he said. Energy industry leaders agreed. “That did not previously exist,” said Robert Veldman, senior environmental adviser for the Houston-based Noble Energy Inc., which drills for oil and gas in the Rocky Mountains and the Gulf of Mexico, and recently started exploration in Nevada. “It will be instrumental in supporting Noble Energy’s commitment to protecting wildlife and their habitats, particularly during project

planning, infrastructure route selection and in doing due diligence for acquisitions and divestitures,” Veldman said. Brown said conservation groups and land trusts have expressed interest in the data to help make decisions about prioritizing protection of wildlife or purchasing property most valuable to their preservation mission. “It provides a common footing for the public and a wide array of stakeholders who are interested in land use,” said Rob Mrowka, a former Forest Service supervisor who now works as a senior scientist for the nonprofit Center for Biological Diversity in Arizona. “It integrates the various mapping systems and databases across state boundaries. To me, that is the quantum leap forward,” he said after watching the unveiling of the project in Las Vegas. California, Montana, Washington, Wyoming and Kansas already are utilizing their own state databases. Nevada rolled out its new maps Thursday in concert with the regional package, with New Mexico and Oregon to follow later this month. The other states are at various stages of compiling

their data — Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Oklahoma, Nebraska, South Dakota and Utah. “Mining companies like to say, ‘The gold is where the gold is; that’s where we need to go,’ ” said Chet Van Dellen, GIS coordinator for Nevada’s Department of Wildlife. “We like to say, ‘The animals are where the animals are.’ ” The “crucial habitat” is not to be confused with critical habitat, a legal term when it comes to protecting wildlife under the Endangered Species Act. Developers and U.S. regulators still must complete environmental assessments as required by the National Environmental Policy Act. But the habitat maps themselves carry no regulatory authority, and developers will be free to pursue projects regardless of what shows up in the path of their projects, although sometimes with a healthy price tag. “It really is a pro-development tool,” Van Dellen said. “We’re just letting you know if that’s the piece of ground you are going to commit to, you might expect a bumpier ride than a smoother ride. If you go this way, you are going to cross all this important stuff, but if you go this way, you are not.”

Most still oppose phone calls on planes Federal agencies grapple with ban The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Just because it’s safe to use cellphones on a plane, it doesn’t mean that passengers should call just to say hello. That argument played out across Washington on Thursday as one government agency moved a step closer to removing its prohibition of in-flight calls while another considered a new ban of its own. The Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 to start a months-long public comment process to remove its restriction. “There is a need to recognize that there is a new technology,” said FCC chairman Thomas Wheeler. “This is a technical rule. It is a rule about technology. It is not a rule of usage.” But the Department of Transportation, which oversees aviation, isn’t so sure that per-

mitting calls “is fair to consumers” and will consider creating its own ban as part of its consumer protection role. “Over the past few weeks, we have heard of concerns raised by airlines, travelers, flight attendants, members of Congress and others who are all troubled over the idea of passengers talking on cell phones in flight — and I am concerned about this possibility as well,” DOT Secretary Anthony Foxx said in a statement. Calls during flights have been prohibited for 22 years over fears that they would interfere with cellular networks on the ground. Technological advances have resolved those concerns, which is one reason Wheeler wants to repeal the rule. He also wants the airlines, not the government, to have final say on in-flight calling. But even Wheeler acknowledged the potential annoyance factor. “I’m the last person in the world who wants to listen to somebody talking” while flying

across the country, Wheeler told a House subcommittee Thursday morning. The FCC proposal comes just weeks after the Federal Aviation Administration lifted its ban on using personal electronic devices such as iPads and Kindles below 10,000 feet, saying they don’t interfere with cockpit instruments. An Associated Press-GfK poll released Wednesday found that 48 percent of Americans oppose allowing cellphones to be used for voice calls while flying; just 19 percent support it. Another 30 percent are neutral. Among those who fly, opposition is stronger. Looking just at Americans who have taken more than one flight in the past year, 59 percent are against allowing calls on planes. That number grows to 78 percent among those who’ve taken four or more flights. Delta Air Lines is the only airline to explicitly state that it won’t allow voice calls regardless of what the government allows. Delta says years of feed-

back from customers show “the overwhelming sentiment” is to keep the ban in place. American Airlines, United Airlines and JetBlue Airways all plan to study the issue and listen to feedback from passengers and crew. Most Middle East airlines and a few in Asia and Europe already allow voice calls on planes. Others allow texting. Southwest Airlines on Wednesday started allowing passengers — for $2 a day — to use iPhones to send and receive text messages while on board through a satellite connection. The system will expand to Android phones early next year. During the FCC hearing, Wheeler acknowledged that he doesn’t want to hear other people’s conversations on a plane and that he picks Amtrak’s quiet car while traveling by train. He reiterated that this change is meant to clean up an outdated regulation, originally passed so air travelers wouldn’t overwhelm cell phone towers on the ground.

imbalance which resulted in cardiac arrest,” he wrote in his opinion for Perrin. “Had she been evaluated by medical personnel, a simple check of Ms. Rodriguez’ reflexes would have made her condition obvious … It’s my opinion … that Eusemia Rodriguez died as the result of calloused neglect and total failure to carry out the Santa Fe County Jails responsibility to provide basic medical care to its inmates.” According to Wild’s summary, Rodriguez had opiate withdrawal medications prescribed to her during previous stays at the jail, and a “kick kit” containing some of the same types of medications were ordered for her when she was booked for the final time in July. But, Wild noted, there was no confirmation that Rodriguez ever received the medications. Mihelcic said an “extensive intake process that deals with medical and mental health is performed on every inmate during the booking process,” and that the same protocol was followed in Rodriguez’s case. County Attorney Steve Ross said the county could not answer a direct question about whether Rodriguez had received the kick-kit medications because to do so would violate the medical privacy of the deceased. “There is another side to this story but we are not at liberty to discuss it without the express written permission of the family of the deceased,” Ross wrote in an email Thursday. Perrin said when he filed a tort-claim notice with the county last year, the county

attorney indicated the county wanted to mediate the issue. Santa Fe County and Perrin agreed to an out-of-court settlement in June. Santa Fe County and its insurance companies, One Beacon Insurance Co. and Evanston Insurance Co., agreed to pay $460,000 to Sophia FrancoMarquez, Rodriguez’s sister, who is listed as the personal representative of Rodriguez’s estate; $20,000 to Clyde Ortega, the father of Rodriguez’s three children; and $20,000 to her mother, Victoria Rodriguez. The sister said the money has been invested in a trust for the children, with a stipend released monthly to their father for their care. Franco-Marquez said her sister had not done well in school and had dropped out of high school but had worked as a cashier, cleaning houses and babysitting to support her children. Eusemia Rodriguez had only become involved in drugs in the last few years, she said. “I don’t even know when it started, it was a big secret,” Franco-Marquez said. “She was trying to go to rehab and stuff, but she didn’t have the means or the proper guidance or someone to stand by her side.” Franco-Marquez she and her four siblings came from a broken home and were not raised together.

Reading: Parent involvement key Continued from Page A-1 student takes part in all interventions and attends school regularly, but still isn’t up to speed. But Sen. Daniel IveySoto, D-Albuquerque, said those provisions diminish the bill’s potential. Skandera told the committee the state would fund some of the interventions with $15.5 million from the Leads to Read initiative if the bill is approved. But the bill’s language makes it clear that districts must bear the cost of reading improvement plans for students in grades K-3. Kernan said the bill will provide more short-term reading assessments, and parents will be immediately brought into the intervention discussion so they can stay on top of their child’s reading progress. Kernan said the bill does not provide for any retention after the third grade, and she noted that under the plan, a child can only be held back once. Current law gives schools the right to hold a child back more than once if necessary, she said. While some studies on retention show students who

are held back are more likely to drop out of school before graduating, Kernan said, other reports note that graduating a child to the next level does not help the child succeed. The governor often has said that up to 80 percent of the state’s third-graders cannot read to grade level. She has made the issue of reading remediation and retention a cornerstone of her educationreform plan. After Thursday’s session, Skandera said the administration has made “unbelievable compromise” to make this bill a reality. “Politics have held this bill up multiple times,” she said. If the bill makes it to a vote on the floor during the session, she predicted, it will succeed. Sen. Linda Lopez, D-Albuquerque, a candidate in the governor’s race, also told the committee she is preparing a reading and math intervention bill that would require a $67 million appropriation from the general fund for programs in grades K-8. She pitched a similar bill to the Legislature last year, but it failed. The 30-day legislative session begins Jan. 21.

U.S. drone strike kills 13 in Yemen SANAA, Yemen — Missiles fired by a U.S. drone slammed into a convoy of vehicles traveling to a wedding party in central Yemen on Thursday, killing at least 13 people, Yemeni security officials said. The officials said the attack took place in the city of Radda, the capital of Bayda province, and left charred bodies and burnt out cars on the road. The city, a stronghold of

al-Qaida militants, witnessed deadly clashes early last year between armed tribesmen backed by the military and alQaida gunmen in an attempt to drive them out of the city. There were no immediate details on who was killed in the strike, and there were conflicting reports about whether there were militants traveling with the wedding convoy. The Associated Press

trained fighters. Planning for the invasion began during the Eisenhower administration in response to the rise of Cuban President Fidel Castro. President John F. Kennedy inherited the scheme when he took office in January 1961. The already released volumes, for instance, recount the CIA maneuverings to covertly gain use of an inactive Marine Corps air station in Opa-locka, Fla. Anti-Castro Cuban exiles recruited in the Miami area formed the backbone of the roughly 1,500-man invasion force, which was defeated within about four days. A 400-plus page report by the CIA’s inspector general critiqued the invasion. Pfeiffer, the CIA historian, in turn critiqued the inspector general’s report in the still-secret fifth volume of his history. Pfeiffer’s supervisor, though, called the volume a “polemic” troubled by “serious deficiencies,” and said that it would not be published.

facing the National Security Archive, Kavanaugh cautioned that forcing a government agency to turn over even old documents could suppress candid debate. The administration, likewise, argues that the draft document is exempt from FOIA because it is part of the intelligence agency’s deliberative process. “The chilling effect is that historians working on internal agency histories would be discouraged from taking unpopular positions,” Zeff argued. A research organization located at The George Washington University, the National Security Archive files upward of a thousand FOIA requests annually to obtain federal documents.

Missing American in Iran was on unapproved mission

MEXICO CITY — After contentious marathon sessions, Mexico’s Congress on Thursday gave final approval to a historic energy reform bill that ends the 75-year state monopoly of the country’s oil and gas industry and invites foreign investment. In a dramatic shift, Mexico’s bloated state petroleum giant may soon have to compete with major U.S. and other multinational firms in the exploration of what are believed to be vast oil and gas reserves. The government of President Enrique Peña Nieto said the change would boost lagging oil production and breathe life into a sluggish economy. Los Angeles Times

Jablonski signed off: “Be safe.” Levinson said he understood. He said he’d try to make this trip as successful as previous ones. And he promised to “keep a low profile.” Levinson’s flight landed on the Iranian island of Kish late the morning of March 8, a breezy, cloudy day. He checked into the Hotel Maryam, a few blocks off Kish’s eastern beaches. Levinson’s source on Kish, Dawud Salahuddin, has said he met with Levinson for hours in his hotel room. The island is a free-trade zone, meaning Americans do not need a visa to visit. Salahuddin was an American fugitive wanted in the killing of a former Iranian diplomat in Maryland in 1980.

ere’s what counts as success in Washington these days: a budget deal that almost everyone hates and that doesn’t solve any of the country’s major problems. The spending bill that Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and Rep. Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis., unveiled Tuesday evening has something for everyone to dislike. It won’t cut federal spending or shrink the national debt, so conservative Republicans don’t like it. It won’t restore much money for domestic programs or extend unemployment insurance, so Democrats don’t like it either. Its main virtue is that it will spare members of Congress from worrying about a government shutdown during their long Christmas break. But in these dark days, the prospect of a deal — any deal — is hailed as the dawn of a new age of pragmatism and bipartisan cooperation. After a series of fiscal train wrecks culminating in the 16-day government shutdown this fall (a shutdown that accomplished exactly nothing), the idea of a staunch conservative and an equally staunch liberal forging a bipartisan, bicameral compromise seems almost charming. Let’s be clear, though. The deal isn’t a grand bargain — at best it’s a mini-bargain. All the Murray-Ryan deal would do, in essence, is split the difference between House and Senate spending proposals, give federal agencies a little more flexibility to adjust to the budget cuts imposed by the sequester, and — the main thing — avoid the prospect of another government shutdown Jan. 15. It won’t reduce the national

N debt, something both parties say they want. It won’t reform the tax code. It won’t even end the sequester’s meat-cleaver method of indiscriminate, across-the-board cuts. Surely the Congress of the United States, legislature of the world’s greatest democracy, can do better than this? Actually, maybe not. By Tuesday afternoon, even before Murray and Ryan had a chance to unveil their handiwork, the well-funded pressure groups of the “tea party” right were swinging into action, warning Republicans in the House of Representatives that if they voted for Paul Ryan’s deal — Paul Ryan’s! — they’d be branded as big spenders. “Congressional Republicans are joining liberal Democrats in breaking their word to the American people to finally begin reining in government overspending,” thundered Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group funded partly by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch. “Politicians choosing to go back on their promise will be held accountable for their actions.” As those unsubtle threats rattled across the right side of the Internet, at least 30 conservative members of the House signed a letter rejecting the deal. And yes,

the signers included many of the same tea party members who strong-armed House Speaker John Boehner into forcing the government shutdown last fall, a gambit that drove the Republican Party’s standing to a record low and briefly made President Barack Obama popular again. Shall we try another shutdown? It’s easy to see why tea party members of Congress don’t like the deal. It increases federal spending by almost 5 percent above the level set by the sequester law next year. It starts to dismantle the sequester, a budget tool conservatives have decided they want to keep even though they originally opposed it. And it increases federal revenue by raising “security fees” on airline passengers — not technically a tax, but awfully close. Democrats don’t like the deal much either. It won’t add any serious money for their favorite projects such as infrastructure spending. It doesn’t close any of the tax loopholes they’ve been trying to close. And it doesn’t include an extension of federal emergency benefits for the longterm unemployed, meaning 1.3 million jobless people will take a hit just after Christmas.

So why are Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Boehner, who can’t agree on much else, bent on muscling it through? Because they want to fight about other things instead. Boehner and his Republicans want to spend 2014 talking about the failings of Obamacare, campaigning for a GOP takeover in the Senate and, above all, avoiding a repeat of last year’s shutdown debacle. Reid and his Democrats want to focus on Obama’s populist economic agenda, including a proposal to increase the minimum wage and other measures to attack inequality. And they want to focus on defending their vulnerable seats against the GOP. A government shutdown would hurt Republicans, but it wouldn’t do Democratic incumbents much good either. “The key thing is to keep the train on the track,” GOP pollster David Winston told me. “The Murray-Ryan deal doesn’t solve any big problems, but it allows everything else to move forward.” Does that qualify as success? These days, it might. But even then, it still has to get past the tea party. Doyle McManus is a columnist for the Los Angeles Times.


‘Flying farolitos’ — a tradition that will be missed


was born and raised in Santa Fe, and I love everything about this city. For me, Christmastime is my favorite time to be a New Mexican. Since I was younger, it has been a tradition for my family and me to do the Canyon Road walk and watch the flying farolitos. Due to the winds and lack of oxygen that the farolitos experience during flight, it is highly unlikely that the flame would survive until descent. The farolitos haven’t started a fire because Arvo Thomson has always taken the right precautions, as stated in the article (“City grounds ‘flying farolitos,’ ” Dec. 10). Furthermore, it is abolition of a tradition. Traditions are what keep society together; they give us something to anticipate. The flying farolitos give Santa Fe a unique edge in the competitive holiday tourist season. Everyone I know loves the flying farolitos dearly, and I mourn their loss.

Transportation and security are not cheap. I am sure that the presidents are not going to foot the bills for their trips.

ew Mexico’s state museums manage, despite tight budgets and many demands, to continually engage their audience. That’s true for homegrown exhibits such as Cowboys Real and Imagined, now at the New Mexico History Museum, or New World Cuisine: The Histories of Chocolate, Mate y Más, at the Museum of International Folk Art, or Here Now and Always, at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture. Then there are those inviting traveling exhibits. Who can forget the exquisite, hand-lettered exhibit featuring the St. John’s Bible, treasures from the court of Czar Nicholas or Gee’s Bends quilts, all of which have spent time in New Mexico? Joining those stellar exhibitions starting Saturday is an exhibit featuring Spanish works — Renaissance to Goya: prints and drawings from Spain, at the New Mexico Museum of Art. New Mexico is fortunate indeed to be the only location in the United States to exhibit this collection of drawings and prints — created at the British Museum and seen in Spain and Australia. Its chief attraction, naturally, is the opportunity to see work by the master Francisco de Goya. An Australian reviewer wrote, “Renaissance To Goya is stunning, packing that unique graphic punch across themes of religion, daily life, myth and — in the case of Goya — social commentary and insanity.” Museum director Mary Kershaw is to be congratulated for bringing the exhibition to Santa Fe. It’s an opportunity not just to see great works on paper, but to revisit what had been a settled question in art and discover new answers. For whatever reason, the Spanish were not considered to excel at drawing in comparison with Flemish and Italian masters. This exhibition, gathering a range of drawings and prints from all across Spain from 1662 until the death of Goya in 1828, shows masters at work, presenting a rich body of pieces that encompasses religion and changing Spanish society. Many of these works haven’t been displayed — the British Museum is so rich in collections that exhibition curator Mark McDonald pulled these from the vaults. The previous view by some, that Spanish artists excelled more in color and painting, but not drawing, can be set aside. In The Independent newspaper, reviewer Michael Glover had an interesting reaction, writing: “We go through it dutifully, glazed cabinet by glazed cabinet … And then, at a certain point, something marvellous happens. The year is 1762. The Tiepolos, father Giambattista and his two sons Domenico and Lorenzo, have just arrived in Madrid from Venice. The sheer brilliance of their etchings takes Spain by storm. … Then, alongside the brilliance of the Tiepolos, come other great practitioners — it all seems to happen in the last third of the show, after we have almost been lulled asleep — Ribera, Zurbaran and, greatest of all, selections from various suites of etchings by Goya, who is so wild and untrammelled and no-holds-barred emotionally that it is sometimes quite difficult to look without wincing.” Until March, New Mexicans and other visitors (we trust both the city and the state are promoting the exhibition to travelers) will have the chance to gaze upon a Goya, and wince for themselves. For New Mexicans, to see work made in Spain is particularly relevant. By 1662, when the exhibit opens, the settlers who had left Spain for Mexico and then traveled north to what is now New Mexico, had begun to put down roots in this new land. These great works are made by the contemporaries of the colonists; the beginnings of our own Spanish Colonial art tradition are linked to those artists of the mother country. This exhibition, in other words, will show New Mexicans more about their own origins, making it an even more essential offering. It is not to be missed.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: December 13, 1963: Albuquerque — A school teacher has the right to give free haircuts to his pupils, so far as the Albuquerque Board of Education is concerned. The Board commended teacher Raymond Chavez for his haircutting, after a member of the State Barbers’ Licensing Board complained about the free haircuts. Chavez also is a licensed barber. The principal of Chavez’ school said, “I fail to see that giving a needy youngster a haircut will hurt anyone in our society, but I do see how a youngster can be hurt if a lack of haircut places a stigma on him.”

the entire state. He’s well on his way to making the last part come true. The Lobos have reached the College Cup for the second time in school history, leaving them just two wins short of a national championship. UNM (145-2) will face Notre Dame (15-1-6) Friday at 3 p.m. in the first of two national semifinal contests at PPL Park in the Philadelphia suburb of Chester, Pa.

On Thursday afternoon, those same guards were poised, confident and more than effective. St. Michael’s got eight 3-pointers from them, and they helped pressure Santa Fe Preparatory into 17 turnovers to produce a 47-37 win in the opening round of the Capital City Invitational in Santa Fe High’s Toby Roybal Memorial Gymnasium. St. Michael’s faces Anthony Gadsden, which beat the host Demons 39-29 in the final game of the evening, in the semifinals at 7 p.m. The other semifinal has Capital, a 68-31 winner over the Santa Fe High junior varsity, facing Hobbs, which

connections, it can release strife and vengeance upon the rest of us. And for what? To make a point, or to win a battle of wills? To get their child more playing time or a starting spot that they might not deserve? At the end of the day, the education system and all of its components are supposed to be designed to teach our kids the necessary skills that will lead them through adulthood. Unfortunately, the system is flawed by individuals who seem to be almost more childish than the kids themselves. And while we are talking about teenagers here, they aren’t that naive to not see through that veneer. The up side to these unfortunate situations is this: those kids learn that life isn’t always fair, and the greatest sign of character is how to persevere. After all, somebody has to be the adult, right?

DENVER — Now, Peyton Manning gets a chance to rest. Big question: Does he really need a break? Chargers 27 Philip Rivers Broncos 20 and the San Diego Chargers kept Manning on the sideline most of the game and handed the Denver Broncos and unexpected and harmful 27-20 loss Thursday night. Rivers threw two touchdown passes to Keenan Allen and kept the Chargers’ offense on the field for nearly 39 minutes, keeping their playoff hopes alive while turning Denver’s supposedly easy road to the AFC West title and top seeding in the conference into something much different. “We didn’t play well, didn’t stay on the field, didn’t have the ball much and, when we did, we didn’t do much with it,” Manning said. The Broncos gained 13 yards on the 13 plays they ran after taking a 10-3 lead late in the first quarter. That covered four drives during which they went three-and-out three times and picked up a total of one first down. “The longer you keep the ball and the less he has it, the better off you’re going to be,” said Chargers coach Mike McCoy, Manning’s former offensive coordinator. Rivers finished 12 for 20 for 166 yards and improved to 28-6 in December. Ryan Matthews matched his season high with 127 yards on 29 carries. After Denver’s long dry spell on offense, San Diego led 24-10, and though the Broncos (11-3) had overcome double-digit deficits four times this season to win, it wasn’t happening this time. They pulled within seven and Manning got the ball on the Denver 3 with 5:50 left. He moved the Broncos 30 yards in two plays with the help of a penalty. But the Chargers’ maligned defense produced some pass rush and forced a bad throw, which linebacker Thomas Keiser picked off at the Denver 33. The Chargers (7-7) got a field goal to go up 10. Denver answered with a field goal but couldn’t recover the onside kick. Manning’s final numbers were decent — 27 for 41 for 289 yards and two touchdowns — but padded during desperation time.

Winston set Atlantic Coast Conference freshman records for the most yards passing (3,820) and touchdown passes (38) while leading the No. 1-ranked Seminoles to a 13-0 record and berth in the BCS championship game. Florida State and Winston continued to excel despite a sexual assault investigation that became public last month. The State Attorney’s Office announced that it would not press charges against Winston last week. However, Winston’s legal problems may not be over. The accuser, her lawyer and family have scheduled a press conference Friday. There is no doubt about Winston’s talent.

Continued from Page B-1

Manning marched the Broncos 67 yards in seven plays for a quick score and this had the looks of a typical blowout for a team that’s cracked 50 points three times this year. Not so fast. His every move well diagnosed, Manning had two passes knocked down at the line of scrimmage. Chargers defenders wrapped up on Denver’s receivers, holding those much-coveted yards after catch to a minimum after so many of Manning’s typically short timing routes. Not having to worry about Wes Welker, out with a concussion, they blanketed the other receivers and turned fourth-stringer Bubba Caldwell into Manning’s prime target.


Growing: Prep struggled with ball handling Continued from Page B-1 beat Deming 100-85. Coming into the season, it appeared the Horsemen would have to go through some growing pains, since they lost Kameron Romero and Jeff Groenewold to graduation and Daniel Ortega elected not to play this season. In their place were names like Marcus PinchieraSandoval, Bradley Vaughan and Chris Lovato, and St. Michael’s head coach Ron Geyer had complete confidence in them. “That’s because they’ve done the body of work since last March,” Geyer said. “We played a lot together in the summer, and this fall. They’ve been in the system since they were little kids — not little kids, but like seventh-graders. They are used to doing things our way. They are going to have their moments, but tonight, they maintained their composure.” That moxie allowed the young guards to hit five 3s out of the eight St. Michael’s field goals in the second half and turn a 23-21 lead at the half into a 45-34 advantage in the fourth on Chris Lovato’s triple with 3:33 left. Lovato ended up with

a team-high 13 points on three 3s, while Vaughan added 10. It made up for the lack of punch from Horsemen big men Justin Flores and Isaiah Dominguez, who both had two points. It was the antithesis of their season-opening win over Los Alamos, in which the Horsemen were just 3-for-14 from the perimeter and Flores had 25 points. Lovato said it doesn’t necessarily matter how the Horsemen (2-0) win, it’s that they find ways to answer their opponents when they make a run. “Anyone who makes a big play, you got to battle back,” Lovato said. “You gotta hit them with another big play of your own, and that’s how we battled.” Prep (6-3) tried to answer every Horsemen counter, but the basket was unkind. The Blue Griffins were just 7-for-22 from the field in the second half. At one point, they missed seven straight shots after cutting the margin to 42-34 on Ian Andersson’s layup with 4:12 to go in the game. Most of them were shots inside of 5 feet, as the trio of

Anderson, Will Lenfestey and Ben Perillo could not find the bottom of the net for most of the afternoon. “We got good looks, we just couldn’t finish,” Lenfestey said. “We just got to be stronger. We’ll do better [Friday, against Santa Fe High].” Prep also struggled with its ball-handling, in part because of the variety of presses St. Michael’s used, but head coach Dennis Casados added that his team wasn’t smart taking care of the ball. “We kind of made mistakes on our own, like walking and sliding our feet,” Casados said. “You can’t play like that. You can’t turn the ball over like that.” In other games: GADSDEN 39, SANTA FE HIGH 29 The Panthers improved to 10-0 in their usual fashion, with patience and perfection. They executed a 7-0 run to end the third quarter to take a 32-21 lead into the fourth quarter, and Santa Fe High never got closer than nine points the rest of the way. The Demons got Hayden Hargove back, but he had just one point in his return from a

head injury suffered last week. Santa Fe High head coach David Rodriguez said Gadsden’s size, strength and quickness were no match for his team. “They’ve held a lot of teams under 30 points,” Rodriguez said. “They’re a good team.” Keanyn Evans had 11 points to lead the Demons (0-6), while Rafa Martinez paced the Panthers with 14. HOBBS 100, DEMING 85 The Eagles (4-0) were everything as advertised, as they scored 32 points in the fourth quarter to beat the Wildcats in a fast-paced battle. Hobbs had five players in double figures, led by Gabe Jurado’s 20 points. Jordan Chavarria added 17, while Cayson Meredith added 15 and Trey Nelson 13. Dominic Saenz had 23 points for Deming (4-2), while Carlos Wilson chipped in with 17. CAPITAL 68, SANTA FE HIGH JV 31 The Jaguars outscored the junior Demons 22-8 in the third quarter to extend a 30-19 lead to move on to a semifinal matchup with the Eagles. Sergio Baray scored eight of his 22 points in the quarter to lead the way for Capital (3-3). Vito Coppola had nine points for the Santa Fe High JV.

Capital: First game with interim coach Rylee Meloy had 13 to lead Centennial.

Continued from Page B-1 to a rough start as they only managed four points in the first quarter and were down 35-13 at halftime. They were able to cut the Centennial lead to 15 midway through the fourth quarter. “There were times when we did make stops on defense, but then we didn’t rebound or we would turn it over and [Centennial] would get easy shots,” Mirabal said. “We had one day of practice and the girls are going through a difficult time.” That difficult time Mirabal is referring to is the loss of Montoya, who was relieved of his duties on Tuesday. A mere 48 hours later, the Lady Jaguars had to play for someone else. “It’s tough because we had a good connection with coach [Montoya], but yet we’re really glad and appreciative with the way Bryan stepped up the way he did,” Capital senior guard Adriana Ochoa said. “He’s willing to teach us and work with us. We’ve always been taught to respect our coaches, so we respect him and we try to keep an open mind with what he has to say to us.” The Lady Jaguars are starting to embrace Mirabal, but the transition did not go over smoothly for some of the players who were shaken by Montoya’s firing. “Some of us were really angry and we wanted to fight it, but I think now we’re just going to let things happen the way they’re supposed to happen and we’re going to give coach Bryan a chance and we’ll go from there,” Ochoa said. Although the Lady Jaguars suffered their seventh consecutive loss spanning back to last season, the 35 points they put

SANTA FE HIGH 77, LAS VEGAS ROBERTSON 44 Santa Fe High head coach Elmer Chavez made his players do a lot of conditioning this week, and it paid off as the Demonettes were able to score 49 points in the first half thanks to a speedy transition game. “I keep telling the girls that the ball shouldn’t even touch the floor,” Chavez said. “Keep moving the ball upcourt, pass the ball, look inside and we’ll get layups.” Sabrina Lozada-Cabbage led the Demonettes (5-1) with 17 points while Kayla Herrera added 15. Amber Yara and Abbey Bradley both had 13 points to lead the Lady Cardinals (0-1). BELEN 54, WEST LAS VEGAS 37 The Lady Dons had a hard time defending Mariah Forde, who scored 26 points to lead the Lady Eagles to their fourth consecutive win. Belen will face St. Michael’s in the semifinals today at 2 while the Lady Dons play the Santa Fe High junior varsity at 8 a.m. Deanna Bustos led West Las Vegas (3-2) with 15 points while Rayna Trujillo chipped in 8.

on Centennial is the most they have scored all year, and that’s good enough for them. “We don’t want to keep losing, but if we’re improving, that’s winning for us,” Ochoa said. Mirabal may have started his

coaching career with a loss, but this one is different than the those that he’s used to. “I don’t believe in moral victories, but this is kind of a moral victory,” he said. Kayla Rehders led the Lady Jaguars with eight points while

ST. MICHAEL’S 52, SANTA FE HIGH JV 21 Alex Groenewold scored 14 points to lead the Lady Horsemen (3-2) past the young Demonettes, who only managed four points in the first half but outscored St. Michael’s 12-11 in the fourth quarter. The Demonettes will continue to get more upper-level experience as they will face two more varsity opponents in the tournament.

Winston takes home major award

Garnett, Nets beat Rivers’ Clippers

Donald, McCarron also headline awards ceremony

By Brian Mahoney The Associated Press

By Kyle Hightower The Associated Press

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Jameis Winston walked away with another major award Thursday night, the latest national prize to put on his mantle. He might want to save a spot for the Heisman Trophy. The Florida State star headlined a big night for the Atlantic Coast Conference, winning the Davey O’Brien Award as the country’s top quarterback at the annual College Football Awards Show at Disney. Winston also won the Walter Camp player of the year award in a separate announcement. The redshirt freshman, who led the top-ranked Seminoles to a 13-0 record and a berth in the BCS national championship game against Auburn next month, said he continues to be humbled by every accolade he’s received in recent weeks. “It feels good. It’s an honor just to be here,” Winston said. “I’m just glad to bring them back to Florida State.” Winston hopes to become the fourth O’Brien Award winner in a row to take home the Heisman in the same year. He would join current NFL quarterbacks Cam Newton (2010) and Robert Griffin III (2011), as well as Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel in 2012. Now that a sexual assault complaint against him in Tallahassee, Fla., has been closed without charges being filed, Winston is the overwhelming favorite to win college football’s highest honor Saturday night in New York. Several players shared the hardware Thursday, though. Alabama quarterback AJ

McCarron won the Maxwell Award for player of the year, and Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald took home two big prizes: the Chuck Bednarik Award for defensive player of the year and the Outland Trophy as most outstanding interior lineman. The ACC led all conferences with four winners out of the nine awards that were presented — two for Donald, one for Winston, and the Doak Walker Award that went to Andre Williams of Boston College as the nation’s best running back. Williams joins Winston, McCarron and Manziel among the six Heisman finalists. Williams became the first Doak Walker winner from his school and from the ACC. He is also the sixth 2,000-yard rusher to claim the honor. The Eagles’ senior actually missed graduation

night Thursday to be at the announcement. When he mentioned that on stage, he received an ovation from the audience. “It’s great. It feels like I was being honored as an athlete and a student at the same time,” he said. “That’s supposed to be the mission, so it felt great.” Though he said this week that he believed he had a season deserving of his Heisman nomination, McCarron, a fifth-year senior with three national championship rings at Alabama, looked visibly taken aback when his name was called for the Maxwell Award. “Super surprised,” McCarron said. “I don’t think I’m the best player out of those other two guys that were mentioned. But I can’t thank them enough. It’s an honor to be here.” McCarron was sometimes

overlooked despite leading Alabama to an 11-1 season that left the Crimson Tide just short of a chance to play for its third straight national championship. He threw for 2,676 yards and 26 touchdowns with five interceptions this season. Now, he prepares to make his first trip to New York for the Heisman ceremony, and McCarron said his game plan is simple. “I’m just going to enjoy the moment and live in the moment,” he said. Donald became the first defensive lineman to win the Bednarik Award since Nebraska’s Ndamukong Suh in 2009. “Just to see all that hard work I put into football, it’s paying off today,” Donald said. “It’s exciting to bring it back to the defensive side. But at the same time there’s a lot of talented offensive linemen, so I’m just honored to be able to take a turn.”

Longhorns’ Brown mum on his future By Paul J. Weber The Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas — Texas coach Mack Brown declined to say Thursday whether the Alamo Bowl will be his final game, amid intense speculation following another disappointing season that began with the Longhorns talking about becoming national championship contenders again. “My situation has not changed,” Brown said. Speaking to reporters for the first time since multiple published reports this week indicated that he might step down, Brown said he has yet to talk with new Texas athletic director Steve Patterson and university President Bill Powers about the job he has held since 1998. Brown deflected several other questions about his future during a news conference in San Antonio about Texas’ bowl game against

Oregon on Dec. 30. “I want to sit down with [Patterson] and Bill in the near future and talk about Mack Brown where we’re going and where our program is going,” Brown said. In Austin, Powers reasserted his support for Brown and said they planned to speak in the coming days. Powers is among Brown’s top supporters, and received a cautious endorsement later Thursday from his frustrated chancellor to temporarily quiet speculation about his own future. Powers has been locked in a two-year power struggle over academics on one of the nation’s biggest campuses. He called Brown one of the sport’s greatest coaches but declined to address the

coach’s status after regents allowed Powers to continue the job he’s held since 2006. “I’m going to focus on this. We’ll discuss football at the appropriate time,” Powers said. Brown acknowledged the Longhorns (8-4) didn’t finish how they wanted after starting the season talking about competing for a national championship. The Longhorns last played for a BCS title in 2009, but fan frustration has mounted after a string of seasons that failed to meet expectations. Notably attending Brown’s news conference was influential Texas booster Red McCombs, who is a close friend of Brown’s and one of the university’s most generous donors. McCombs told reporters he hopes Brown comes back next year — but didn’t blink about the caliber of coach Texas could get to replace him.

If the Longhorns job comes open, expect more speculation about Alabama coach Nick Saban replacing him. The AP reported last month that after last season Texas regents had spoken with Saban’s agent about the possibility of replacing Brown and approached Brown about stepping down. Saban has deflected those reports. But McCombs expressed confidence about Texas’ ability to lure him to one of the wealthiest athletic programs in the nation. “I don’t think there is any question about ‘getting him,’ ” McCombs said. “When Mack came there, budgets were an issue; they are not an issue now. Hell, all the money that’s not at the Vatican is up at UT.” Brown is 158-47 at Texas, including a national championship in 2005 and another BCS title game against Alabama four years later. But since 2009, the Longhorns are 30-20 and 18-17 in the Big 12.

Talent: Record 168 wins with Fishbein Continued from Page B-1 for seven years at NCAA Division II Fort Lewis College, then another two at Incarnate Word, another D-II school. “I coached nine years in Division II where you’re doing everything but washing the socks, you know?” he said. “And then you get here and you’re always kind of hungry. I guess I don’t think of us as an elite school, but when you talk to other people they’re like, ‘Oh, you’re an elite program.’ ” Now in his 13th season with New Mexico — the past 12 as head coach — Fishbein can’t imagine being anywhere else. “This is the place where I really want to spend my life,” he said. “I hope it works out that way. There’s no other place I’d rather be.” His 168 wins are a school record, having done it by cultivating a program built on reputation rather than glitz and glamour. “There’s a handful of programs that are getting players that we have difficulty getting,” he said. “In terms of the blue

chip kids, the national team kids; they’re hard for us to get. But, you know, maybe those aren’t the guys, probably, that I like to coach the most. I like guys that are little bit the underdog, that have a little bit of a chip on their shoulder that we’ve kind of discovered. That’s what I’m real comfortable with. Guys that you have to push a little bit.” That personifies this year’s club, he added. He had five players named to the NCAA Division I All-Midwest Region team, blue-collar guys like seniors Michael Calderon, Kyle Vinter and Michael Kafari, junior Matthew Gibbons and sophomore Ben McKendry. “It always amazes me,” Fishbein said. “There’s always a kid out of the blue that says ‘I want to come to New Mexico.’ I guess you can’t talk about recruits but we’ve got kids that could have gone to Harvard, that could have gone almost anywhere and for some reason they said, ‘Hey, that’s the fit for me. That’s the lunatic I want to play for.’ It seems to work out. I think the respect for our program is high in this country.”

New Mexico is something of the oddball entrant in the College Cup. The other three teams are from the Atlantic Coast Conference while UNM is from Conference USA. More than representing the conference, Fishbein said, the Lobos are taking pride in being the state’s ambassadors on this trip to college soccer’s peak. “I think we feel we’re representative of New Mexico,” he said. “I think that’s the team’s identity — and it’s not just Albuquerque, it’s the state. There’s a lot of pride.” NOTES u PPL Park is the home of Major League Soccer’s Philadelphia Union. A soccer-only facility that sits near the Delaware River, it seats 18,500. u The Lobos are 1-1 all-time against Notre Dame, the last encounter coming in 2009 in a 2-1 UNM win in South Bend, Ind. u Goalkeeper Michael Lisch and the Lobos’ back line have posted 11 shutouts this season, the third most in program history. Each of their last five wins have been shutouts.

NEW YORK — Andray Blatche and Joe Johnson each scored 21 points in the Brooklyn Nets’ Nets 102 102-93 victory over the Clippers 93 Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday night, making Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett winners in their first matchup with Doc Rivers. Brook Lopez had 16 points and Deron Williams 15 for the Nets, who won their seasonhigh third straight. Pierce scored 10 points off the bench in his second game back from a broken hand. Chris Paul scored 20 points but had just two assists as the Clippers lost for the first time in nine games this season when he reaches 20. Pierce and Garnett went 2-0 in a reunion tour of ex-Celtics this week. They helped the Nets beat Boston here Tuesday, then Rivers made an emotional return to Boston on Wednesday. Rivers said before this game he knew it would be fun because of how competitive his two former stars are. It finally rubbed off on their new team, as the Nets were much more fired up than in some of their poor performances during an 8-14 start. Garnett had just two points but played rugged defense on Blake Griffin, shaking off coach Jason Kidd’s attempt to sub him out in the second quarter after picking up a third foul. He was whistled for his fourth in the third quarter that was so hard officials originally called it a flagrant before overturning it when replay showed he’d actually hit Griffin in the upper arms, not the face. Rivers coached Pierce and Garnett to the 2008 NBA title, but wasn’t interested in remaining in Boston after last season once it became clear the Celtics were heading toward a rebuilding era.

a first-round pick. The Clippers wanted Garnett, too — and maybe even Pierce — but the teams couldn’t find a way to make a deal that would’ve been legal under NBA rules. Pierce and Garnett were eventually dealt to the Nets, and Rivers remains close with the duo. Garnett took a detour during his intense pre-jump ball ritual to stop at the Clippers bench for a hug with Rivers and his assistants from Boston. Pierce and Rivers had a couple of chats and chuckles during the game. Both sat out Nets’ loss in Los Angeles on Nov. 16, along with Williams and Lopez. The Nets are healthier now and finally playing good basketball. Griffin had 12 points and 11 rebounds for the Clippers, who were a step behind on the sixth stop of their seven-game road trip that wraps up Saturday at Washington. The Clippers jumped to an 11-2 lead and were ahead 25-20 after one quarter, but the Nets controlled the latter stages of the half. Brooklyn outscored Los Angeles 19-7 over the final 4:41, turning a 37-all tie into a 56-44 lead, the final basket drawing oohs from the crowd when Williams shook free of Paul with a crossover dribble and into the lane for a layup.


Injuries, losses prompt MLB to seek collision ban By Ronald Blum The Associated Press

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Baseball officials are up front about this: They want to ban home-plate collisions to guard their investments. Minnesota’s Joe Mauer, a three-time batting champion, is less than halfway through a $184 million, eight-year contract. He was limited 75 games at catcher this year in a concussion-shortened season. Buster Posey, another batting champ, has a $167 million, nineyear deal. San Francisco wants to ensure that he doesn’t have another horrific injury like the one that ended his 2011 season. That’s why Major League Baseball’s rules committee voted this week to prohibit runners from plowing into catchers. The rule will take effect next season if the players’ association agrees, and in 2015 if the union doesn’t. “It’s a great change, We protect our assets,” Los Angeles Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said Thursday as the winter meetings ended. “Some of the things we’ve seen happen in the recent past — Buster Posey, concussions with Joe Mauer, Yadier Molina getting blown up, they are some of the best players in the game. They mean so much to their team —the financial investments involved. And more importantly, the health of the individual.” Boston’s David Ross, Detroit’s Alex Avila, Oakland’s John Jaso and Kansas City’s Salvador Perez all missed time because of concussions this year. “Collisions at home plate can

significantly alter your ability to win games,” said Andrew Friedman, Tampa Bay’s executive vice president of baseball operations. “I just think athletes today are bigger, faster, stronger, and the catchers are in significant danger of long-term injuries that we can avoid. I think the heightened awareness to concussions influences it quite a bit.” Eleven players who were primarily catchers last season are signed to contracts running through 2016 and beyond, with a total of $565.45 million in remaining guaranteed salary, according to calculations by The Associated Press. MLB watched as the NFL reached a $765 million settlement last summer in a concussion-related lawsuit by former players and a group of hockey players sued the NHL last month over brain trauma. “How much is it that they’re paid a lot more than they used to be?” said New York Mets GM Sandy Alderson, chairman of the rules committee. “It’s a combination of those things. But I think what’s crystalized our thinking is probably the concussion issue. Try to be proactive.” This year’s winter meetings likely will be remembered most for the rules decision. There were just six trades — two more than during last year’s drab session in Nashville, Tenn. As the meetings ended, the Chicago Cubs acquired Justin Ruggiano from Miami in a swap of outfielders, and Seattle completed its $240 million, 10-year contract with All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano, a deal agreed to last week.

eaping seven nominations on both the con-artist melodrama American Hustle and the grimly historical 12 Years a Slave, the Golden Globes nominations set up a showdown of contrasts: comedy and drama, light and dark, white and black. The two films were validated as Academy Awards front-runners in the Globes nominations announced Thursday in Beverly Hills, Calif., by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, refining what had been a scattered awards season in a year many consider encouragingly plentiful of worthy movies. The differences between the two top-nominees are vast. While David O. Russell’s fictionalized caper American Hustle takes a playful, exaggerated approach to an already outlandish story (the FBI’s scandal-uncovering Abscam investigation in the disco 1970s), Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave, based on Solomon Northup’s 1853 memoir, is unflinching in its portrait of Southern slavery — a subject Hollywood has seldom depicted rigorously or truthfully. American Hustle, though equally dramatic as it is comedic, is for Russell a closely felt story of self-renewal. Reteaming much of the casts from his last two acclaimed films (Silver Linings Playbook and The Fighter), the movie’s warm reception completes a personal redemption for the director. American Hustle received nominations for best picture, comedy; Russell for best director; Christian Bale for best actor, comedy; Amy Adams for best actress, comedy; and Jennifer Lawrence, last year’s Oscar darling, for best supporting actress. The distinction drawn by the Globes between drama and comedy-musical, won’t be there for Oscar voters. The field can’t be said to have narrowed too much, though. The innovative, 3-D space odyssey Gravity, which received four nominations Thursday including best dramatic film and best actress for Sandra Bullock, will surely be more of a heavyweight at the Academy Awards, which honor technical achievement categories that the Globes don’t. The ’60s Greenwich Village folk tale Inside Llewyn Davis (three nods) and the soulful, futuristic romance Her (three nominations) have each won best film from other groups. Support is also strong for Alexander Payne’s father-son road trip Nebraska (five nominations), the Somali pirate thriller Captain Phillips (four nods), and Martin Scorsese’s wild high-finance party The Wolf of Wall Street (two nominations). All five were nominated for best picture. A movie that could have been a theatrical release, Steven Soderbergh’s Liberace drama Behind the Candelabra, topped the Globes’ television nominations. The HBO film helped the cable channel yield a leading nine nominations among TV networks. The digital platform Netflix, though, emerged as a new

challenger with six total nods. The subscription service’s first major foray into original programming, the political thriller House of Cards, tied Candelabra with four nominations. House of Cards, produced by David Fincher and starring Kevin Spacey, is also a product of filmmakers who turned to the small screen. But in a year where TV’s rise was much trumpeted, the movies put forth a dynamic argument for the big screen. Ron Howard, whose Formula One thriller Rush was a surprise nominee as best dramatic film and best supporting actor for Daniel Bruhl, said it’s a “remarkable movie season.” This year’s comedy competition could be the strongest field ever for the Globes. Aside from American Hustle, the group includes The Wolf of Wall Street, Nebraska, Her and Inside Llewyn Davis. Two 77-year-old veterans landed best actor nominations: Robert Redford in the drama All Is Lost, and Bruce Dern in the comedy Nebraska. Redford, who hasn’t ever won an acting Oscar, gives a nearly unspoken performance as a man shipwrecked in the Indian Ocean in All Is Lost. In Nebraska, Dern plays a taciturn Montana man who believes he’s won a mailing sweepstakes. Nebraska, also was nominated for Payne’s screenplay and June Squibb’s supporting performance. Most notably shutout was Lee Daniels’ The Butler, the civil rights history told through a long-serving White House butler played by Forest Whitaker. Oprah Winfrey has been considered a favorite among supporting actresses. Also denied were hopefuls Fruitvale Station and Prisoners. Among the nominees included many big names (Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine; Judi Dench, Philomena; Tom Hanks, Captain Phillips; Kate Winslet, Labor Day, Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, August: Osage County, Joaquin Phoenix, Her; Matthew McConaughey, Dallas Buyers Club, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Enough Said, Emma Thompson, Saving Mr. Banks) and some fresh faces (Barkhad Abdi, Captain Phillips; Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club; Greta Gerwig, Frances Ha; Oscar Isaac, Inside Llewyn Davis). Gerwig, who plays a young, meandering New York dancer in Frances Ha, said: “When the phone rang this morning, I silenced it and I thought, ugh, who do I owe money to?” The last film of 2013 to screen, Scorsese’s three-hour financial industry extravaganza had been one of the biggest question marks this awards season. After being snubbed Wednesday by the Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations, it earned a nomination for Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance as an out-of-control Wall Street trader, along with the best picture nomination. The awards and their boozy telecast are known for a desire to attract stars, even if their films aren’t quite up to snuff. This year’s ceremony on Jan. 12 will again be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy. The more prestigious Oscars will be held March 2.

Woman gets no jail time in latest stabbing Diaz pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter of previous boyfriend By Phaedra Haywood The New Mexican

Johanna Diaz, previously convicted of stabbing to death the father of her two children, entered a guilty plea Thursday to stabbing another boyfriend in a deal that gives her a suspended sentence. Diaz, 32, was arrested Aug. 6 after

reportedly stabbing her latest victim with a steak knife. The man had a few cuts on his right arm and forearm but refused medical attention, according to a police report. In the plea agreement approved by the District Attorney’s Office, Diaz pleaded guilty to two counts of battery on a household member. She was sentenced to two years, but that time was suspended. Instead, Diaz will be on unsupervised probation for two years and will be required to undergo drug-and-alcohol treatment and domestic-violence counseling. Diaz’s victim was present before

Magistrate George Anaya when she took the deal Thursday, and he asked that she continue to be allowed to have contact with him. In 2010, Diaz pleaded guilty to volJohanna Diaz untary manslaughter in the 2005 death of her boyfriend at the time, 24-year-old Manuel Garcia. In that case, Diaz — who also used the name Andrez — told police that Garcia had fatally stabbed himself.


Name change: Civil rights coalition takes on Redskins. Page C-3

Later, she said she grabbed the knife to defend herself because Garcia was “freaking out,” according to a New Mexican article. She was sentenced to seven years for manslaughter and four years for tampering with evidence, but a judge suspended all but the five years she had already spent in prison. She also was sentenced to two years of supervised probation in that case and was ordered to undergo anger-management treatment. She has been barred from contact with Garcia’s family, who have custody of her two children with Garcia.

City to challenge ruling on liquor sales near school Councilors argue Giant store is within 300 feet of Sweeney Elementary By Daniel J. Chacón The New Mexican

Hawaiian homecoming

The city of Santa Fe will challenge a recent state Court of Appeals ruling that the city can’t prohibit liquor sales at an Airport Road convenience store. Although the appellate court agreed with state regulators and the Attorney General’s Office that the city’s reading of state regulations is incorrect, councilors voted following a closed-door session Wednesday night to file an appeal with the state Supreme Court. The city’s effort to prohibit liquor sales at a Giant convenience store at South Meadows and Airport roads has been in litigation for more than a year. It’s unclear how much money the city has spent on the case, which has been handled by in-house attorneys, not by outside counsel. The City Attorney’s Office doesn’t track the number of hours it spends on individual cases, a city spokeswoman said. City Councilor Carmichael Dominguez said Airport Road has been inundated with liquor stores and that the city must take other factors, not just financial costs, into consideration. “What I’m concerned about is doing everything we can to protect our families from too many alcohol

ALBUQUERQUE — It could be a month before a ruling is issued in a challenge against New Mexico’s assisted-suicide law. State District Judge Nan Nash said she has a lot of information to consider after hearing closing arguments Thursday. Two doctors and a Santa Fe cancer patient sued in March 2012. They’re seeking to make it legal for physicians in New Mexico to prescribe needed medications for terminally ill patients who want to end their lives on their own terms. Under state law, it’s a fourthdegree felony to assist someone in suicide. The plaintiffs argue that the decades-old law is vague and doesn’t specifically address the conduct of physicians. They also say competent, terminally ill patients should be able to have the choice if they want to end their lives.

Agency seeks $140M more to support schools By Robert Nott The New Mexican

The state Public Education Department is asking the Legislature for $140 million more for public schools in 2014-15 — including $100 million for new initiatives. All told, the department wants $2.5 billion to pay for public school. Much of that money would be spent on teacher salary increases ($18.5 million), reading intervention programs ($15.5 million), transportation ($100 million) and early childhood initiatives ($35 million). Public Education Secretary-designate Hanna Skandera and Deputy

Secretary Paul Aguilar presented their request to the Legislative Finance Committee on Thursday. The bill they proposed only covers publicschool support and does not reflect Gov. Susana Martinez’s overall education budget, which she is expected to announce in January. The education budget includes $45 million in “above-the-line” funds, which provide districts with more flexibility to target their priorities, and $55 million in “below-the-line” funds, in which spending is directed by the Public Education Department. The latter might include specific statewide reading initiatives and early-childhood programs.

Many superintendents around the state have argued that the Public Education Department should give them more leeway with “above-the-line” spending, since they are best suited to determine how they need to spend those funds. Skandera noted that the department has to hold districts accountable for the money spent and the academic achievements tied to that money. “These are not just dollars that go and we don’t know what happens to them,” she said. As an example of targeted belowthe-line directives, Skandera said after just one year of department-directed

public funding, but she wants to point out that using $5 “seed money” contributions as a qualifier for public funding is a “faulty system.” Nevertheless, she said, she is staying in the race. “We know, with the volume of names we submitted, that we have the community support we need to continue our campaign,” she said. “The misperception is that Rebecca and myself didn’t meet the qualification due to ‘lack of support,’ ” she said via Facebook, referring to former mayoral candidate Rebecca Wurzburger, a city councilor who dropped out of the mayor’s race Saturday. “That is not true. I have met

hundreds of people, walking the neighborhoods door to door. We spent months doing that,” she said. “Heck, my own boyfriend did not qualify, and he is registered to vote at my house! But for some reason, his registration record doesn’t show up on Yolanda’s system so therefore it didn’t count. We’re in the race no matter what, but it has been frustrating dealing with this requirement and understanding what records got bumped and why.” City Clerk Yolanda Vigil did not respond to a request for comment. Bonney said her campaign submitted 175 individual $5 contributions. Council candidates were required to submit

150 contributions of $5 each from registered voters in their district to receive $15,000 in public funds. “There is some confusion as to the number of names that the City Clerk did not accept, of people that are registered to vote in District 2,” Bonney said. “It seems that the paperwork of people that were registered to vote were not updated with the County Clerk’s office.” She added: “We will continue to work with the Clerk on this issue, but will remain in the race with or without public funding of our effort.” Contact Daniel J.

Civil rights group takes on Redskins Top U.S. coalition says Washington’s NFL team should change its name By Theresa Vargas Washington Post

WASHINGTON — A coalition of the nation’s leading civil rights organizations took on a new issue Thursday: the name of the Washington Redskins. The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, a coalition of organizations including the NAACP, the ACLU and the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, approved a resolution at its annual meeting in Washington that called on the team to change its name and “refrain from the use of any other images, mascots, or behaviors that are or could be deemed harmful or demeaning to Native American cultures or peoples.” Of the 85 organizations at the gathering, not one representative offered opposition. The resolution was approved to a round of applause. “What affects one of us, affects all of us,” said Hilary Shelton, director of the NAACP’s Washington Bureau. He said African-Americans are all too familiar with seeing themselves stereotyped and that the organization plans to do what it can to support the Native American groups that have taken the lead on the name-change push. “Athletics are supposed to demonstrate the best of who we are,” Shelton said. Instead, the team’s continued use of a word that Native Americans have denounced as offensive treats them as “less than human,” he said. “We all hope they change it very soon. There is really no excuse for not doing so.” In an emotional letter to fans in October, team owner Daniel Snyder described the name as a “badge of honor” and pointed to a nine-year-old poll showing that 90 percent of Native Americans


Local man one of 15 indicted in heroin bust The New Mexican

Manuel Griego, 34, of Santa Fe is one of 15 men charged by a federal grand jury in Albuquerque with trafficking drugs in Bernalillo and Santa Fe counties. Acting U.S. Attorney Steven C. Yarbrough and Special Agent in Charge Joseph M. Arabit of the DEA’s El Paso Division announced the 15-count indictment Thursday after 14 of the 15 men were arrested. Agents also executed 13 federal search warrants and five seizure warrants. The 15th defendant was on conditional release in a related federal case. The indictment came after an 18-month investigation by the DEA and a New Mexico DEA Region 1 task force. It was code-named “Operation Sand Wedge” because the alleged leader of the drug-trafficking organization, David Reynolds, 31, of Albuquerque, was an avid golfer. The indictment charges Reynolds and the others with conspiracy to distribute heroin and other illegal drugs from September 2012 to December 2013. In addition to Griego and Reynolds, the following men were indicted: Allen Cameron, 48; Jose Martinez-Encinias, 41; Humberto Hernandez Jr. (“Butch”), 37; Erik Barros, 30; Gene Solis, 19; Daniel Jiron, 39; Robert Herrera, 40; Miguel

Baca, 37; Joe Sanchez, 21; Arthur Gallegos, 27; Christopher Ortega, 41; Teddy Archuleta, 32; Zebulun Smith, 31. All are from Albuquerque. Martinez-Encinias, also known as “P-Homie” and “P-Boy,” also is charged with possessing firearms in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime, and Reynolds is charged with money laundering. Each defendant faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison to a maximum of life in prison. The indictment includes forfeiture provisions that seek a money judgment of at least $1.3 million and property and assets obtained from the commission of crimes alleged in the indictment. During Thursday’s multiagency law-enforcement operation, authorities seized about 2 pounds of heroin, approximately $60,000 in cash, three firearms and 11 vehicles. Additional amounts of heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine were obtained through undercover purchases during the investigation. Arabit said the operation “dismantled an organization responsible for distributing large quantities of heroin in the Albuquerque area.” Another man, David Ben Reynolds, 25, was arrested on a charge of unlawful possession of a firearm during the Thursday roundup.

were not offended by the team’s name. “I respect the opinions of those who disagree,” Snyder wrote in the letter. “I want them to know that I do hear them, and I will continue to listen and learn. But we cannot ignore our 81-year history, or the strong feelings of most of our fans as well as Native Americans throughout the country. After 81 years, the team name ‘Redskins’ continues to hold the memories and meaning of where we came from, who we are, and who we want to be in the years to come.” At Thursday’s gathering at the Capital Hilton, Ray Halbritter, the representative of the Oneida Indian Nation, addressed the group. The small New York tribe has launched a national campaign against the team’s name, running radio ads in Washington and every city where the team has played. Halbritter has also met with NFL officials to discuss the issue and last month, during a meeting of tribal leaders at the White House, thanked President Barack Obama for saying if it were up to

him, he’d change the name. “Many have tried to pretend that the campaign to change the mascot is not a serious civil rights issue,” Halbritter told the group. But the NFL is arguably the single most powerful cultural force in America, and for many people, “their most explicit and direct contact with the very idea of Native American culture is the Washington team’s bigoted name.” The resolution calls on Washington, Maryland and any other local, state or government entity to “disassociate themselves from the Washington Redskins franchise and to end any preferential tax, zoning, or other policy treatment that could be viewed as supporting the franchise as long as it retains its current team name.” Last month, within a two-day span, the D.C. Council approved a resolution that called for changing the team’s name and the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution defending the team’s right to choose its own moniker.

Schools: Budget has $14.4M for special education Continued from Page C-1 teacher-evaluation plan and teacher salaries. On Wednesday, Martinez announced her plan to raise salaries for new teachers by 10 percent — increasing the starting pay to $33,000 from $30,000. On Thursday, Skandera and others confirmed that starting teachers who already are earning more than $30,000 will not receive a 10 percent increase, but will be bumped up to $33,000. Thus, teachers earning $32,000 would only receive a $1,000 raise. Sen. Carlos Cisneros, D-Questa, told Skandera he thought that was unfair to those teachers. The proposed education budget also includes $14.4 million to cover special education funding requirements that are tied to federal grant funding. The state is still trying to work its way out of a potential shortfall of future federal funds based on its repeated failure to maintain a certain level of financial support for special education programs. Though the U.S. Department of Education granted New Mexico a waiver for its failure to meet the funding standards in 2010, it denied a request for a 2011 waiver, putting about $34 million in federal funds at risk. The federal requirements for special education are designed to ensure that grant funding supplements state funding and doesn’t just replace it. Some lawmakers asked Skandera why the department was only setting aside about $14 million to meet the federal requirements. She said the state is waiting for a hearing to be scheduled in Washington, D.C., so it can appeal the 2011 waiver denial. She and Aguilar said the department held a phone conference with federal officials on the subject earlier this week, and the latter advised New Mexico to wait until after South Carolina — which is appealing a similar waiver-request denial — has a hearing to see how that plays out. Aguilar said he thought that hearing may take place early next year.

Time Out D-2


By Raina Wellman Generation Next

gen e


oday — Friday the 13th — might seem like just another day to many people, but for others, it may bring out their superstitious side. According to some sources — including — somewhere between 17 million and 21 million people fear the date Friday the 13th in the United States. The day is often considered a day of doom, one fraught with many mishaps and disasters. But why? Generation Next sought to find out. Michael Brill is a local author, theorist and cosmic numerologist who also helps with stress management. Asked why people fear Friday the 13th, Brill said, “There is no logical reason for people to fear Friday the 13th. If I have to offer an explanation, I would say that cosmically, it is a day that can bring feelings of inadequacy, a lack of confidence and a tendency to either be overly logical or totally illogical.” The numerological significance of 13, according to Brill, goes like this: “A positive 13 can bring the confidence to make innovative visions into reality. A negative 13 can bring to the surface a lack of confidence, feelings of inadequacy and the probability of stubbornness, procrastination or reactionary behavior patterns.” Ellen Zieselman, youth director at Temple Beth Shalom, connects the number 13 to Judaism, but not in a bad way. “The number 13 is not a negative thing in the Jewish tradition. In fact, 13 is the number associated with the Attributes of God, which are enumerated in the Torah in the book of Exodus [chapter 34: 6-7]. These attributes form the basis for the Jewish Forgiveness Liturgy during the High Holidays. This cycle begins with the Selichot [forgiveness] Service before Rosh Hashanah and includes the entire Yom Kipper [Day of Atonement] Services. [The number] 13 has other connotations as well. Moses Maimonides, a medieval Jewish scholar, wrote that there are 13 Principles of Faith that are basic to Judaism. And 13 is also the age at which a boy becomes a Bar Mitzvah [son of the commandments], the age at which a Jewish child is responsible for his/her religious choices.” Many people claim not to be afraid of Friday the 13th, but there is still an air of dread surrounding the date for some. As Heather Whips wrote on livescience. com, “Today [Friday the 13th] is dismissed as an old superstition but — if given a choice — how many of us would eschew getting married, flying or giving birth on a Friday the 13th? Superstition, indeed.” She notes that the superstition might be traced back

for and by teens

Why millions fear Friday the 13th and other notions


to biblical times, when the 13th guest at the Last Supper betrayed Jesus Christ, who was crucified on a Friday. Norse mythology also notes that Loki, the god of mischief, was the 13th guest (and an uninvited one at that) at a dinner of the gods, and that his unpleasant antics during that meal led the whole world to go dark. As Stuart Vyse, an author, psychologist and teacher, explained, “[Friday the 13th] seems to have emerged from the belief that 13 people at a table was unlucky, as in the case of the Last Supper. Later, the number 13 was feared more generally. Meanwhile, Friday had been considered an unlucky day in Europe because hangings typically took place then. So eventually, these two beliefs came together in Friday the 13th.” There are other possible explanations as well, Vyse noted: “I

think in pre-scientific eras, people wanted explanations for bad things that happened in the world. negative superstitions provided these explanations. But at this point those negative superstitions just create unnecessary anxiety.” Vyse encourages people to “gradually face [their fears], push yourself to do something you would otherwise be reluctant to approach.” Jerome Bernstein, a Jungian analyst and author suggests that if someone has a strong phobic reaction to the number 13 or Friday the 13th, they can consider short-term therapies that might help them combat that fear, including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy and eye movement desensitization reprogramming. Friday the 13th also has become ingrained in popular culture.

What is the worst thing that happened to you on Friday the 13th?

Anthony Peba, Pojoaque High School “I slipped on a banana peel.”

n o i t ra

Martin Solis, Taos High School “Getting scared really bad.”

Natalie Solis, Taos High School “I think I fell and scraped my knee.”

Milagros Herrera, Capital High School “Nothing happened to me.”

Hotels and high-rise buildings often do not include a 13th floor or a room 13. Movies both horrific — the popular Friday the 13th franchise — and comedic, including Freaky Friday, pay homage to the superstitious date. Habits may be passed down from superstitious relatives (don’t walk under a ladder; avoid black cats). Yet statistics and research don’t necessarily show that Friday the 13th is anymore unlucky of a day than any other day. Vyse said fewer than 20 percent of Americans really believe in the superstition. But as Bernstein points out, “As a mild superstition, I do not think [Friday the 13th] is rare. If it was rare, elevators would not be reprogrammed to ‘eliminate’ the 13th floor.” Raina Wellman is a junior at New Mexico School for the Arts. Contact her at

Superstitions of the theater world By Tilcara Webb Generation Next

Never say the word Macbeth while opening an umbrella on the second night of a theater performance. It is bad luck. The theater world is very particular about some of its superstitions. As with days, numbers, and other issues and activities, people have pre-established traditions regarding superstitions. Sometimes they make up their own. I’ve experienced this in everyday society, but as a drama student, I particularly note it in the theater. So I learned that I should not utter Macbeth while in a theater. Why? I didn’t have the slightest clue. Apparently, this play written by William Shakespeare has always had some misfortune surrounding it. The actual play is about death, witchcraft and greed. One many occasions, productions of Macbeth have seen their actors wounded, mugged and even killed. Bad luck has led to superstitions about the play and the title. Theaters have burned, people have died, and all that could go wrong has gone wrong. If a person does accidentally say

Macbeth while in a theater, the offender must go outside, turn around three times and spit. According to Rita Kogler Carver in her book Stagecraft Fundamentals: A Guide and Reference for Theater Production, “They say the spin turns back time and the spit expels the poisonous word from your system.” Opening an umbrella while onstage also is rumored to bring misfortune to the perpetrator. In 1868, an orchestra director named Bob Williams apparently did just that, and he died the same day in a boat explosion. And so the superstition began. If an actor must open an umbrella on stage, he or she should open it toward the floor. For most superstitions, there is often a cure to make things better. After fixing would-be disasters, it might be a good idea to implement some good luck. Having someone say “break a leg” refers to putting your leg down to bow. Saying it is supposed to help ensure a good performance and thus a good bow at the end. Other goodluck traditions include getting pinched, tripping when first entering the stage, falling once during a performance and using a rabbit’s foot to put on makeup. Many of these superstitions began in

the Middle Ages and therefore may seem a bit odd by today’s standards. We have our own superstitions and rituals in the theater department at New Mexico School for the Arts. On opening night, as an entire cast we gather and perform a classified tradition in order to prepare for our show. On the second night, we try to keep the energy up because there is a superstition that a second-night performance is a letdown compared to opening night. Sometimes the size of our audience and its energy level predicts how the show will go. We are told to wait until after the audience leaves before breaking the proscenium — the space between actors and audience members. The world of theater is perhaps a bit abnormal in its traditions, but it’s all done to ensure a good performance. As actor Gregg Henry puts it, “Actors really are superstitious. You can always spot a group of actors at a restaurant. They’re the ones spitting on their knuckles and hurling salt everywhere.” Tilcara Webb is a sophomore at New Mexico School for the Arts.

DVD Glimpse inside France’s cave of wonder By Aaron Stevens Generation Next

Human beings have been making art forever. German director Werner Herzog’s 2010 film Cave of Forgotten Dreams (available on DVD) is a documentary about the oldest artwork in the world: cave paintings. Herzog’s film focuses on the Chauvet Cave in southern France, discovered in 1994. Though the cave has never been open to the public, Herzog and his crew received one-time exclusive access to it for this film. The documentary begins with sweeping views of Vallon-Pont’d’Arc, the rural region surrounding the cave. Erosion of the area’s porous cliffs by the Ardèche River has left caves and a huge natural archway — sites that may remind New Mexicans of the area around Bandelier National Monument near Los Alamos.

Where ‘Cave of Forgotten Dreams’ really shines is in the display of cave paintings, up close and personal. Early humans painted in Chauvet Cave about 32,000 years ago, according to the film. (By comparison, Bandelier was first inhabited about 900 years ago and the cliff dwellers there carved petroglyphs instead of paintings.) The Chauvet artwork is almost entirely made up of animal images: horses, lions, even woolly mammoths. The cave also contains the fossilized bones and footprints of now-extinct creatures, including bear claw marks on some of the walls. Human relics include a child’s footprints, charred remains of torches and hearths, and smoke stains on the ceiling. It seems that humans never lived in the cave; archaeologists speculate that it was used as a religious space only. Herzog’s documentary is as much about the cave’s present as its past. Archaeologists, paleontologists and art historians involved in the preservation and research of the site are interviewed in the film. Their efforts are intensely detailed, as Herzog takes the viewer through the many methods of preservation, including hermetically sealing the cave’s only entrance. Laser mapping, inch-by-inch photography and radiocarbon dating are all described within accompanying interviews. Where Cave of Forgotten Dreams really shines is in the display of cave paintings, up close and personal. Herzog lovingly pans over the pictures, using a variety of lighting effects to show the irregular texture of the “canvas” and makes it seem as though the illustrated animals are moving. One painting, of a herd of horses, gets almost five minutes of this treatment accompanied by Gothic choral music. As such, the film is a tribute to the cave painters: People time almost forgot but is now trying to rediscover. While archaeologists may be able to piece together physical facts about the painters, the artists’ motivations — their dreams — will never be known. This fact clearly bothers Herzog and tempers the mood of the movie. Aaron Stevens is a senior at Santa Fe Prep. Contact him at

Son cuts off parents after their comment Dear Annie: Both my husband and I are on our second marriages. We have tried very hard to get along with our exes, to no avail. When we invite them to go to parent-teacher conferences with us or attend dance and piano recitals, it seems to only make matters worse. The children saw this, and it hurt them greatly. My husband and I promised each other that when our children were engaged, we would talk to them to ensure they were not making a mistake. I wish my parents had done this, even though I realize I might not have listened. My husband’s son got engaged suddenly at the age of 21 to his first girlfriend. My husband and I thought he was far too immature to get married. His fiancée at the time was extremely loud and boorish and also inexperienced in the dating world. We spoke to our son and explained that he was young and there are many fish in the sea, and that even if he were madly in love, there is no need to rush to get married. Well, he told his fiancée, and we were not invited to the wedding. Now, neither of them speaks to us. We tried to get his sister to pass along birthday greetings on our behalf, but she said, “I don’t want to get involved.” It’s been nearly six years. We miss our son greatly. How do you suggest we proceed? — Unhappy Parents Dear Unhappy: Your heart was in the right place, but disparaging a child’s intended is asking for trouble. They rarely listen and often become defensive and angry. The best you can do is swallow your pride. Phone or send a letter or email saying you were wrong to have interfered, that you can see that their marriage was the right choice for them, that you are sorry for engendering ill will and that you hope they will forgive you. Add that you miss them, and ask whether there is anything you can do to improve the relationship. We hope

they respond positively. Dear Annie: I am excited for the upcoming holiday party season, except for one thing: Please ask your readers to have respect for the nondrinking guests at their parties. I am in my 30s, married and a mom, and I don’t like to drink, but I feel pressured every year at these parties. I never preach about it. I simply say “no, thanks” when offered. But, my response is never respected. Instead they say, “Oh, come on, it’s a party!” Or, “Just have one if you’re worried about driving home.” Some become quite aggressive in trying to get me to indulge. What if I were a recovering alcoholic, deathly allergic or drinking were against my religion? It’s none of their business. But people act as if I am crazy for not accepting a glass of wine. I think they are poor hosts for pressuring me. I can have a great time without drinking. — Dry in California Dear Dry: People mistakenly think they are being friendly by cajoling you past the point of politeness. You can keep saying “no, thank you” until they give up. Or, pour yourself some water in a cocktail glass. A third option is to accept a glass of wine and hold it in your hand until the party is over. You don’t have to drink it. Dear Annie: I could have written the letter from “Hurt in Florida,” whose children and grandchildren don’t include her in their get-togethers. My daughter told me they are “just too busy” for me. But they somehow have time for her dad and stepmother, as well as her in-laws and several friends. I haven’t seen them in more than a year. We don’t talk because I don’t call. I don’t understand any of it. I just wanted to let “Florida” know that she’s not alone. I’m hurting with her. — Midwest Grandma

ON THE COVER 36 Sketches of Spain “The British Museum’s Old Master prints and drawings are such a celebrated part of its collections that it comes as something of a surprise that the present exhibition is the first large-scale evaluation of its Spanish holdings,” said the museum’s director. This week, the show Renaissance to Goya: Prints and Drawings From Spain begins a threemonth visit to the New Mexico Museum of Art, the only American stop on its world tour. On display are works by Velázquez and Murillo as well as by less-familiar names. The pen-and-ink drawing Saint Mary Magdalene in the Desert, by the late-18th-century artist José Camarón y Bononat, graces the cover; image courtesy the New Mexico Museum of Art.

Santa Fe iS the only american venue for what The New York Times called a “Trove of Spanish Artwork” from the reserves of the British Museum. Familiar as Goya’s iconic self-portrait The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters may be, there is no substitute for a first-hand encounter with its inky intensity as the cats symbolizing witchcraft fix you in their stare and the bats of ignorance and the owls of folly descend.

Free public exhibition opening Saturday, december 14 · noon to 5:00 pm Explore more than 100 works in this exhibition that includes Velázquez, Murillo, Zurbarán, Ribera, and others. Enjoy Spanish guitar through the galleries.

Flamenco Fire

Sunday, december 15 · 11:00 am to 1:00 pm Our Spanish theme continues: experience the passion of Flamenco in informal demonstrations by local talent. Sundays are free for New Mexico residents.

Tailor-made masterpiece: Alan Shields’ labyrinth Alan Shields (1944-2005) is known for his three-dimensional paintings, collagelike works in which he employed materials such as thread, pipe cleaners, scraps of cloth, glass beads, handmade paper, and even Velcro. Shields learned to sew from his mother and sisters while growing up in Herington, Kansas. Using a sewing machine to craft his works, he became prominent in the New York art scene in the 1970s. Maze, created in the early 1980s, is an interactive installation of pathways lined with two-sided paintings on unstretched canvas that offers visitors the immersive experience of being inside a painting. New perspectives, colors, and forms greet them at every turn. More than 30 years after its inception, Maze comes to SITE Santa Fe for SITElab 3 — along with the video work Into the Maze, a recorded performance by the Stephen Petronio Dance Company set to original music by Tom Laurie. The company has collaborated with visual and performing artists such as Cindy Sherman, Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, and Anish Kapoor. In Into the Maze, eight dancers dressed in Shields’ wearable art objects interact with the large-scale installation. This is the third installment in the SITElab series. Designed to give visitors a taste of the kinds of contemporary exhibitions presented at SITE between major shows, SITElab is an ongoing series of experimental exhibitions of work by established and emerging artists presented in a newly designed gallery space off the lobby at SITE. SITElab 3 opens Wednesday, Dec. 18, and runs through Jan. 12, 2014. There is no charge for admission. SITE Santa Fe is at 1606 Paseo de Peralta; call 505-989-1199 and see — Michael Abatemarco

STAR CODES Heather Roan Robbins

This dark week before the solstice bustles but has only minor astrological events. We may get the chance to organize loose ends, tell people we love them, and love ourselves by getting as centered and prepared as we can. The sun and Mercury now in adaptable Sagittarius help us multitask, though they can call us from our duties by singing of snow-covered slopes. They also bring an itching need to express ourselves with honesty and directness, which makes parties interesting. This season is all about connection to one another, the natural world, our global community, and whatever path brings spiritual joy. Mars now in Libra increases our desire to socialize and whispers of holiday romance, breathing life into ongoing relationships if we remember their preciousness. Venus in Capricorn can make it harder to relax into the holiday season, but it helps us get back to work after distractions. Friday the 13th can feel lucky if we make it cozy. We may face some internal resistance over the weekend or tend to chores as Mars semisquares Saturn. Early next week a buzzing full moon in versatile, voluble Gemini can spark conversation and trigger nerves. Some long-term changes hit a temporary bump as Uranus turns retrograde, but the momentum stops only long enough for us to tend to personal homework. Later in the week, we want to go home, but that may be more a heartspace than a place. If we suddenly feel needy, it helps to help another. Friday, Dec. 13: Under a stable Taurus moon, work gets done with steady pacing. Midday, trust that what’s here is what’s needed, and make the best of it. Work around a communications snafu late in the afternoon; expect delays. The evening waxes philosophical as the moon approaches a trine and sextiles expansive Jupiter.

Gi fts I nspiri ng Cha nge! Are you sure you have all the necessary things on your holiday giving list? Don’t forget these and many more options: ❑ A new sleeping bag for a resident at the Interfaith Shelter. ❑ Prenatal lab test for a client of La Familia Medical Center. ❑ Four days of food assistance for a NM veteran in need. ❑ A book for an early reader in a family without books. ❑ A beehive colony or rabbits for an impoverished Haitian family

December 7, 8 & 14, 15 in the DeVargas Mall

Saturday, Dec. 14: We may wake up tired or too aware of chores as the moon opposes Saturn, but our flow returns when we mobilize. Midday, discipline needs to be applied to temper, frankness, or the gift-buying budget as Mars semisquares Saturn, but we can solve this problem. Rest and acceptance warm our hearts as the moon trines Venus tonight. Sunday, Dec. 15: The conversation speeds up as many pots simmer; we can feel fractured or frayed if we overdo the multitasking as the moon waxes in nervy Gemini and squares Neptune. We should stop and listen to the soul and find beauty in the moment. Information to make healthy decisions pours in. Monday, Dec. 16: If too much clutters the plate, prioritize and sort by time sensitivity and soul priority, but don’t be hard on others. Find humor and look for what is falling through the cracks this afternoon. Spontaneously gather tonight as the moon waxes full. Tuesday, Dec. 17: Expect the unexpected today after an early full moon at 3:34 a.m. MST. Later, slow down as the moon enters domestic, personal Cancer. People get defensive if they feel pressured to do more than they can; keep the vibe positive, not corrective. Notice some clash of international concerns and look for common ground.

Wednesday, Dec. 18: We may have to accept that some event will not happen, but this creates more room for fresh input. Fill up on what’s honorable, familiar, and homey; provide emotional ballast rather than feeding the winds. Thursday, Dec. 19: We can balance disparate elements and accomplish personal work this hopeful, thoughtful morning as the moon conjuncts Jupiter. If we offer respect to elders or teachers and give honest positive feedback to bosses or cohorts, it promotes understanding within. Tend to work that’s almost done. ◀

darkof theside don waters’debut novel finds humor in the borderlands


PASATIEMPO I December 13 -19, 2013

on Waters’ first novel, Sunland (published by University of Nevada Press), has two settings, one inside the other. The encompassing landscape is the Southwest — also the scene of many of the short stories collected in his 2007 book Desert Gothic, which won the Iowa Short Fiction Award given by the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop and was published by University of Iowa Press. The other landscape is the enclosed world of the fictional Paseo del Sol retirement village in Tucson, Arizona, where Sunland ’s protagonist, Sid Dulaney, watches over his grandmother while supplying her and her neighbors with affordable medication he smuggles into the country from Mexico. Both places, large and small, might seem outside the experience of a man who has a home in Portland, Oregon; is teaching this year at the University of Iowa; went to college in Saratoga Springs, New York; and spent time in the San Francisco Bay area. The source of Waters’ fascination with the Southwest, he explained in a phone call from Iowa City, starts in the high desert of Nevada and extends to Santa Fe and Las Cruces. “I’m originally from Reno, born and raised,” he said. “That landscape, that’s my personal landscape. No matter where I go, the Southwest is always with me. When I first started writing, that’s the landscape I wrote about.” Waters was living in California with his partner, writer Robin Romm, when Romm landed a job teaching at the College of Santa Fe. Waters was hired to teach during the college’s final year, in 2009, before it closed and the Santa Fe University of Art and Design took its place. “It was an odd way to start a teaching career, just as they were going out of business,” he said. Waters then took a job teaching at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces and spent two years there before following Romm to Portland. Like Waters, Sunland’s Dulaney had left his own “set of tracks. I floated around this big weird country for 12 years, subsidized by odd jobs, picking up credits towards a degree in education.” Waters said he can empathize with the character. “My experience is not exactly the same as Sid’s,” he said, “but when I looked at the number of places I’ve been over the last decade, I realized I was all over the place: four different states, seven cities, 11 different addresses. There was a lot of moving around, and some of that filtered into the book.” During that process, Waters lived in Berkeley for a while, where he became the director of a residential facility for seniors. “I was in my mid-20s and needed work. Somehow I applied for a job in an elder-care facility, a job for which I had no experience. Luckily, someone in there happened to be a friend to struggling artists and writers. I ended up as the director at this nonprofit facility. I had no business being in administration. ‘You’ll be great,’ I was told. I learned about all the issues that surround elderly healthcare, how absolutely expensive it really is. That was always at the forefront of my day. At night I was writing.” Waters’ work in Berkeley and his experiences visiting Arizona led to the creation of Sunland’s retirement village, one of recent fiction’s more interesting settings. “I visited Sun City, north of Phoenix, a town that’s composed almost entirely of retirees,” he said. “It’s a very strange thing when you go into these towns; there are very few young people. You get this sense of all these activities — strange things like wheelchair yoga — that create this false fantasy land. All you see are grass and palm trees and people in golf carts. Being around places like that allowed me to just make up Paseo del Sol.” One of the stories in Desert Gothic suggests the narrative later drawn out in Sunland. “Mr. Epstein and the Dealer” is about a young man — known only as the “dealer” — who, like Sid Dulaney, crosses into Mexico to save money on his grandmother’s prescriptions. Soon he’s carrying drugs back for other residents of the Sage Gardens Royal Commons Senior Living Community, Tucson’s largest (fictional) senior residential village. He brings in Fosamax for osteoporosis, Dilantin for seizures, Aricept for Alzheimer’s, and Parlodel for Parkinson’s as well as antibiotics, antidepressants, antipsychotics, bloodpressure agents, and “a tonnage of Viagra.” But the dealer’s pharmacist in Nogales sets limits on synthetic and opiate-based narcotics. “No lose my license,” the druggist explains. The other protagonist, Mr. Epstein, has a tumor of some kind. He suffers from nausea and migraines. He wants the dealer to fly to Mexico City, where pharmacists are less cautious, and pick up some morphine for him — but not, the story suggests, for pain. “I wrote ‘Mr. Epstein and the Dealer’ in 2004, 2005,” Waters said. “It’s the one story from the collection that really stayed with me, the one world that I wanted to go back to and re-explore. It’s a very dark story. The dealer isn’t

I visited Sun City, north of Phoenix, a town that’s composed almost entirely of retirees. It’s a very strange thing when you go into these towns; there are very few young people. You get this sense of all these activities — like wheelchair yoga — that create this false fantasy land. All you see are grass and palm trees and people in golf carts.

as sympathetic as Sid. His whole task is to procure this prescription that is going to let Epstein end his life. It’s a very different story than [Sunland]. But I love the idea of this character having this friendship with an older man and taking care of people in the village.” The concerns addressed in “Mr. Epstein and the Dealer” are fewer and more focused than those in Sunland. In the novel, Waters not only deals with the high cost of prescriptions and senior care but also with border immigration, the larger black market for drugs, and what it means to be old — very old — and frail in America today. “I was very conscious of wanting to write a novel that addressed the issues that the elderly faced. I didn’t want it to be as grim [as “Mr. Epstein and the Dealer”], but I wanted it to put some light on those issues. Setting the story in Tucson let me do that ... with all the issues of healthcare and where people go across the border for medications, for dental appointments and medical surgery — all that’s going on with illegal immigration, how you travel when you cross the border. Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, it’s all a virtual police state; you can’t escape it. The mixing of the races, too; I don’t overtly address it, but it’s woven into the fabric of the novel.” Some of the book’s levity comes from its cast of characters, a group that ranges from penny-pinching and sexually obsessed seniors to a matter-of-fact gun-toting Mexican — possibly a cartel member — who stops by a birthday party at the facility to enjoy some cake. Then there’s Warsaw, heir apparent to Dulaney’s drug business, who has his own needs for products only available south of the border: Spanish-language gore tabloids. Absurd scenes and situations — a sweet senior putting a rope of chewing tobacco into a cup, a giraffe being smuggled into the U.S. — balance the book’s darker side. “I believe a lot of humor comes from a serious place,” Waters said. It’s “the byproduct of releasing tension. The humor that develops from serious issues comes out because those issues are very tense. Of course, some of these [events] ... are absolutely absurd. I didn’t have to try to write funny. I just wrote what was there, stripped away everything that wasn’t real, and ended up with what was funny.” What about the giraffe? “That was taking it one step further. The deeper I got into my research about drugs and smuggling, I learned that all kinds of absurd things were smuggled. I don’t know of a case of a large animal like that being brought over, but I did learn that some cartel members had zoos in their backyards with those types of large animals. You have to think, Where did they come from? How did they get there? What would happen if someone needed to bring one across the border? How would they do it?” Waters publishes frequently in a variety of literary quarterlies and said he has a new collection of short stories he hopes to publish soon. Nearly all of these are based in the desert Southwest. “I have one that happens in Española, based on a headline I saw in The New Mexican when I was just walking around one day. It was something truly awful; a brother learns his sister has been traded for heroin. Something terrible like that just sticks with you. I’ve expanded it to make the brother a veteran from Iraq who’s returned half a man, who’s come back and sees all this chaos.” Published in The Georgia Review, the long story’s central line reads, “Almost more day-to-day chaos happens in the tiny hamlet of Española, New Mexico, than what he witnessed in all of Diyala Province.” There’s little humor to be found there. ◀

IN OTHER WORDS book reviews Constellation of Genius, 1922: Modernism Year One by Kevin Jackson; Farrar, Straus and Giroux; 430 pages Kevin Jackson has made a compelling case for 1922 as the defining year for the dawn of modern art as it burst into the consciousness of Western Europe and America, like a life force returning after the long, brutal winter of World War I. Willfully obscure and often somewhat difficult to digest, modernist perspectives conquered the literary world for much of the next decade. Jackson’s book is subtitled 1922: Modernism Year One, following the lead of the expatriate American poet Ezra Pound. Writing to his countryman, journalist and critic H.L. Mencken, on March 22, 1922, in “year one” of a new epoch, Pound declared the “Christian Era” over as of Oct. 30, 1921 — the day James Joyce finished writing Ulysses, which Jackson calls “the most influential novel of the century.” Joyce’s masterpiece was published a few months later, on Feb. 2, 1922. Before that year was out, on Dec. 15, T.S. Eliot’s magnum opus, The Waste Land, which Jackson similarly rates “the most influential English-language poem of the century,” was published in book form in the U.S., crowning the year as both coming in and going out with what are, according to the author, the century’s finest literary achievements. As Jackson sketches eclectic entries for nearly every day of the year, we find that Joyce and Eliot have the lead roles, with Pound serving as their tireless agent, editor, and life coach. Only 36 when the year began, and not yet the Mussolini-loving anti-Semite that he became later, Pound was a one-man catalyst of international culture on a personal mission for great literature that obeyed his simple prescription: “Make it new.” Change was in the stars. Jackson twirls the globe and places the full scope of the changes in motion. Also on Feb. 2, in Muzot, Switzerland, the German-language poet Rainer Maria Rilke heard a voice “as if from heaven” that inspired an enormously creative burst of writing, finishing his Duino Elegies and Sonnets to Orpheus in the next 20 days. In that same month, Ernest Hemingway met Gertrude Stein for the first time in her studio. “1922 was the year in which Hemingway seriously embarked on his career as a writer,” Jackson writes, adding that the novelist’s mentors were Stein and Pound. Radio grew rapidly in the U.S. and the U.K. that year, quickly becoming a nearly worldwide medium. Jackson does not exclude the important milestones in the lives of W.B. Yeats,


PASATIEMPO I December 13 -19, 2013

Walt Disney, Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, Louis Armstrong, Robert Flaherty, Jean Cocteau, Federico García Lorca, and the Lawrences (D.H. and Frieda as well as T.E.). Bertrand Russell checks in and out, as do Henri Matisse, Frank Lloyd Wright, Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, and Ludwig Wittgenstein, to mention only a few of the figures who aligned to form the constellation of the age. Perhaps the social highlight of the author’s parade of stars is a supper party at the Majestic Hotel in Paris on the night of May 18. It was hosted by the Russian ballet impresario Sergei Diaghilev after his company performed Igor Stravinsky’s burlesque Le Renard at the Paris Opera. Among the 40 or so guests were Virginia Woolf’s brother-in-law, art critic Clive Bell; Sydney and Violet Schiff, two of the most indispensable patrons of the era; and the four men Sydney Schiff told Bell he most admired — Picasso, Stravinsky, Joyce, and Marcel Proust. Joyce was shabbily dressed and probably drunk, according to Bell, who was said to have left early, leaving others to report priceless snippets of conversation between the two immortal novelists: Proust: Do you like truffles? Joyce: Yes, I do. Proust: I have never read your works, Mr. Joyce. Joyce: I have never read your works, Mr. Proust.

Reactions to Ulysses trickled in throughout the decade (and have not stopped, for that matter), with obligatory tut-tuts to Joyce for his discussion of sexual matters. There was also plenty of grudging approval for Eliot’s poem, which critics found impossible to enjoy in the same way poetry had been enjoyed before. There are plenty of anecdotes in this book, and few of them are dull. Jackson delivers a nostalgic walk down memory lane. Beyond that, the book will please English and comparative-lit majors at the very least, but it should also appeal to casual readers who will know the names and enjoy the crunchy details. The major complaint lodged against Eliot and Joyce was that their work was so hard to read. They both required much unpacking, and Eliot in particular had to be explained simultaneously and not only with a couple of references. He also had to be revisited many times for a few drops of real juice. The distinguished American critic Edmund Wilson’s splendid review, titled “The Poetry of the Drouth,” came to Eliot’s defense in the waning days of 1922 with his ultimate praise: “Mr. Eliot is a poet — that is, he feels intensely and with distinction and speaks naturally in beautiful verse.” Wilson concludes that the race of poets, “though grown rarer — is not yet quite dead; there is at least one who, as Mr. Pound says, has brought a new personal rhythm into the language and who has lent even to the words of his great predecessors a new music and a new meaning.” — Roger Snodgrass

SUBTEXTS Western weirdness Except for the part about Grandfather having been shot and Grandma having been killed years ago by a frightened cow, the first sentence of Joe R. Lansdale’s The Thicket (Mulholland Books/Little, Brown and Company) pretty much divulges everything that ensues: I didn’t suspect the day Grandfather came out and got me and my sister, Lula, and hauled us off toward the ferry that I’d soon end up with worse things happening than had already come upon us or that I’d take up with a gun-shooting dwarf, the son of a slave, and a big angry hog, let alone find true love and kill someone, but that’s exactly how it was. This spoiler shouldn’t discourage you from reading — quickly — the following 339 pages to find out what those things “that had already come upon us” were (one word: “pox”) or why the narrator, Jack Parker, would take up with such an unlikely trio or whom he would kill. Maybe some of that will come up when Lansdale reads at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13, at Op. Cit. Books, 500 Montezuma Ave., Suite 101, 505-428-0321. It also won’t spoil anything to tell you that Lula is kidnapped in the first few pages by a band of desperadoes named Cut Throat Bill, Fatty, and a guy whose moniker includes a racial epithet. A straightforward Western — well, except for that mad hog — might seem a bit strange coming from an author who wrote a novella (Bubba Ho-Tep) about an elderly Elvis Presley joining forces with a black man claiming to be John F. Kennedy to do battle with an Egyptian mummy in a Texas nursing home. But you can’t pigeonhole Lansdale, an author whose novel count ranges from 12 to well over 30 (depending on how you count novellas). He has written in the genres of mystery, horror, science fiction, and yes, Westerns. He’s best know for his Hap Collins and Leonard Pine series, the protagonists of which are two private investigators who couldn’t be more different. Lansdale has won multiple Bram Stoker awards for his horror fiction, an Edgar Award for best mystery novel, and a British Fantasy Award for best short story. He has even written comic books. Coinciding with his visit is the Jean Cocteau Cinema’s 11 p.m. showings on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 13 and 14, of the film adaptation of Lansdale’s short story “Christmas With the Dead,” which brings campy, ghoulish meaning to the words holiday feast. — Bill Kohlhaase

wenty minutes after getting off the phone with Pasatiempo, Paula Poundstone tweeted, “I can't do interviews. I’m never on topic. ‘When did you start comedy?’ ‘I had popcorn last week, and I still have a hull in my teeth.’” The famously conversational and self-deprecating stand-up comedian, who’s been at it since the ’80s, fudged the truth to serve the joke. The actual question she was asked, in a wide-ranging conversation that follows in part, was, “How did you develop your comedy style?” She’s also perfectly capable in


PASATIEMPO I December 13 -19, 2013

interviews. She rambles a little but doesn’t stray as far off course as she thinks she does, and it’s doubtful many journalists are hoping she has a set of concise speaking points with which to regale them. Her interview style is essentially the same as her stand-up style: she riffs on whatever strikes her as interesting or funny, and she authentically engages with the people she’s talking to. Poundstone is the author of There’s Nothing in This Book That I Meant to Say and for 10 years has been a regular panelist on National Public Radio’s popular current-events quiz show, Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me! Poundstone brings her Ha Ha Ho Ho Holiday Comedy Show! to the Lensic Performing Arts Center on Friday, Dec. 13.

Pasatiempo: How did you develop your comedy style? Paula Poundstone: My act is largely autobiographical, so it evolves as I do. Some things never change, sadly. When I started out, I was busing tables and taking public transportation, and that’s the majority of the material I did. When my kids were little, I talked about raising little kids and babies. And now I talk about teenagers. My favorite part of the night is just plain talking to the audience. I do the basic “What do you do for a living?” and this way little biographies emerge and I kind of use that to set my sails for where to go. I don’t have a set set. Night by night, it’s not the same — partly because I have no memory. I couldn’t do it the same if I wanted to. And also, because of that

problem, over the years I just sort of developed that way of doing it, where I don’t worry about it anymore. Pasa: Do your kids care that you talk about them in your act? Poundstone: They don’t know. I don’t tell them. If my son were in the room, I wouldn’t do everything that I do about him, because it would just be rude. But the truth is that those things would not be funny if they weren’t somewhat universal. And, I exaggerate slightly. Well, there are some things I don’t have to exaggerate at all. After the show I do a meet-and-greet thing and take pictures with people and look them in the eye and have real human contact, which is so missing in our world. I can’t tell you how many times people have come up to me and said, “We’re raising your son,” or “Our daughter should marry your son,” or “We had a kid just like that.” And sometimes they’ll say, “He’s 26 now, and he’s doing great.” That feedback means the world to me because: a) we all laugh at it for a night — everyone’s burden is lifted for a few minutes — and b) not to be the only one. Stand-up comedy’s been around in some form since before we came out of the cave, but surely that’s what it’s about for a species — not to be the only one. It doesn’t mean we all walk in lock step, but at an emotional level we do go through similar struggles. Parenting is a lonely task. I have three kids who hate me many days in a row. I’m the only hammer dropper here in my house, so that’s why I sell them down the river. That’s why I throw them under the bus. My son has come with me to work many times. I do a thing about him on his first day of middle school, telling me how everyone is stupid. He thinks it’s funny. Pasa: Is it true that you spent time in foster care as a kid? Does that have anything to do with your decision to become an adoptive parent? Poundstone: It’s an urban legend. I was in a residential place when I was a teenager, because I was such a loser no one knew what to do with me. It wasn’t foster care. When I left there, I was 17. I went out on my own, had a miserable experience, and when I was maybe 18, a family in Massachusetts let me live with them, which I did on and off for a year or so. When my kids and I go home to Massachusetts, that’s where we go. But there was no state intervention. I don’t know that I put my experience together with adopting at the time. I was raised in a beautiful little town in Massachusetts with woods and opportunity. Adopting was more about feeling lucky and privileged, rather than that I’d had a terrible struggle. I was a whiner. I don’t really think I had a terrible childhood. I was a drama queen. It was like one day a window cleared and I realized there were other people out there and I decided I should be a part of contributing to the whole. It was the day my frontal lobe came in. Pasa: You tend to work “clean,” but stand-up comedy has gotten pretty dark. Do you have an opinion about the controversy over comedians using rape as a punch line? It’s become common slang among teenagers to mean “dominate” or “win,” as in “I just raped that video game.” Poundstone: I didn’t know people were telling rape jokes in their acts, but my son uses that word occasionally in a different way than I am viewing it. He’s always shocked by my response when I tell him not to say that. I don’t care about cursing, but my reaction to him using that word is pretty strong. I don’t understand it in that context. For me it conjures up a scary idea. I say words that people don’t like on stage all the time, but it’s not the thrust of my act. Back in the ’80s, they would ask if I had any funny AIDS jokes. I don’t really work that way — AIDS is a topic; let’s see if I can think of anything funny about it. It really works the other way around. If I happen to think of something funny about a topic, then I might say it, but I’m not going to put myself to the task because it’s in the news. In the area of AIDS, especially in the ‘80s, the possibility of making somebody’s night not very happy, someone who came out to be entertained in that setting, was way too risky. I don’t want someone caring for someone with it [AIDS] to think I’m cavalier. I don’t want to add to their burden. That’s how I would feel about a rape joke as well. I can’t see where you’re going to find something funny enough that people who have gone through that will be uplifted by bringing it up. If I could, I would, but I’m not that good a comic. ◀

PASATIEMPO I December 13 -19, 2013


our musicians much respected in early music circles joined forces for a recital of Baroque Christmas music at St. John’s College on Dec. 6: soprano Ellen Hargis, violinist Carla Moore, violist da gamba John Dornenburg, and harpsichordist Jillon Stoppels Dupree. Although the concert did not provide consistent pleasure, its more successful expanses were rewarding, the more so for focusing on rarely encountered repertoire from the 17th century. The most remarkable item was the “Canzonetta spirituale sopra alla nanna” by Tarquinio Merula, an Italian composer most active in the 1630s and ’40s. In verse after verse of this ostensible lullaby of the Madonna, expressions of maternal sweetness are undercut by macabre premonitions of the suffering her baby will eventually endure: for example, “These hands and these feet,/at which you look now with such joy and delight/alas, in so many ways/will be wounded by sharp nails.” This combination of the innocent and the penitential is underscored by a short, poignant harmonic gesture that repeats obsessively 161 times without interruption, above which the singer declaims the grisly poem in increasingly florid phrases. Hargis possesses a warm, cushioned, almost husky tone that added a further emotional edge to a score that already displays the weird chiaroscuro that could characterize the early Baroque aesthetic. Also among the highlights were the endearing song “Sweet Was the Song the Virgin Sung” (an entirely less conflicted lullaby); “Long Cold Nights,” a folkish tune published by John Playford in 1687, in an arrangement that spotlighted the expressive bow work of violinist Moore; and a piece by German Baroque composer Samuel Capricornus, writing in the style of Schütz. Dieterich Buxtehude’s cantata Singet dem Herrn (BuxWV 98) provided an uncomplicated framework on which Hargis and Moore could interact with sensitive musicianship, swinging with particular élan in triplemeter sections. Arrangements of three French carols provided musical charm and seasonal sparkle. Selections from the first half of the 18th century — the sorts of pieces most listeners immediately think of as Baroque music — generally fared less well. A set of variations on a Swiss Christmas song published in 1741 by Michel Corrette was conceived for the organ but rendered here as a harpsichord solo. The instrument, made by William Dowd, sounded unresonant, perhaps damped by the acoustics of the Great Hall at St. John’s. Lacking the brilliance and tonal variety of an organ, the reading seemed perfunctory. The “Villancico de Nadal” (Nativity Villancico) by Pedro Rabassa (1683-1767), a little-known Spanish-Catalan composer, was, by the musical standards of its time, a provincial effort, but it was thoughtful of the musicians to include it on their program in our city of Spanish heritage. An arrangement by Dornenburg for violin, gamba, and harpsichord of the famous Sinfonia (a “pastoral symphony,” one might call it) that opens the second cantata of Bach’s Christmas Oratorio brought the level of the concert down a peg. The piece really did not lend itself to the severely reduced forces, and the arrangement’s miscalculated conception was thrown into even higher relief by its painfully out-of-tune execution. At least the discomfort it occasioned proved topically apt when the ensemble plunged ahead into a mundane Telemann cantata whose opening line took on added meaning thereby: “I am undaunted in the face of all suffering.” — James M. Keller

ON STAGE The fire inside: Flamingo Pink and Hazel Ra


Both Flamingo Pink and Hazel Ra create ruminative spaces with their music, which is singer-songwriter driven in both cases but sometimes incorporative of digital beats and harmonic layering (Flamingo Pink) or a backing strings and horn section (Hazel Ra). Formerly of Santa Fe, Flamingo Pink returns from the Bay Area with her guitar to visit and remind friends and fans what they have been missing. Hazel Ra, of Portland, Oregon, joins her at High Mayhem (2811 Siler Lane) for a show billed as a “special night of dreamy, campfire-worthy folk music.” The show begins at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., with admission based on a sliding scale of $5 to $10. Visit — L.B.

Frisky kitty: Miguel Migs Miguel Migs falls into the category of house music DJs who see monotony as the enemy and emphasize the soulful over the metronomic. The same could be said of DJs Oona and Samma Lone, who host Rouge Cat’s monthly “Frisky” event. They welcome the San Francisco-based Migs to town to celebrate the event’s first anniversary. Though Migs has been active since the 1990s, his national presence has expanded over the last decade thanks to the launch of his own dance-music label (Salted Music) and accolades like the Independent Music Award for Best Dance/Electronica Album (for his 2007 album, Those Things). The 21-and-over show starts at 9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased in advance from Rouge Cat (101 W. Marcy St.); call the venue at 505-983-6603. — L.B.

If I only had a heartbeat Robot Heartbeat is a music showcase of Santa Fe Community College student work from a class devoted to two of the most prominent music software programs: Reason and Live. Both can be used for creating presequenced music or in live performance, meaning the show is likely to have a strong and lively improv aspect even though the sound is generated from within the cold, lifeless shell of a computer. The SFCC students also incorporate visual elements into their performance, which is at Warehouse 21. The all-ages (and free) show starts at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13. W21 is at 1614 Paseo de Peralta; call 505-989-4423. — L.B.



TERRELL’S TUNE-UP Steve Terrell Brother against brother — in song As terrible as the Civil War was, it was a very musical war. Probably because of the movies and various documentary depictions that have become inseparable from that war in the popular mind-set, when you think about the Civil War, you’re likely to think of rousing marches, blue coats, and gray coats. Or perhaps you conjure up the image of a lonesome soldier sitting by a campfire at night playing sweet nostalgic songs of home on his old harmonica. Or maybe you think of contemporary songs about the Civil War like The Band’s haunting “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” or Hank Williams Jr.’s shockingly clueless “If the South Woulda Won.” While a few of the popular songs of 150 years ago have remained somewhat familiar, many have faded from memory. Producer Randall Poster has collected 32 Civil War-era songs from both sides of the Mason-Dixon line and rounded up a bunch of country, bluegrass, blues, and folk musicians for an impressive two-disc compilation called Divided & United: The Songs of the Civil War. “Because of the richness of the music of the 1850s and 1860s, so much of it concerned with universal themes of longing, death, and liberty, experiences like that constantly recur on Divided & United,” writes historian Sean Willentz in the liner notes. Although most of the tunes in the project deal directly with the war, some are just songs that were popular during that era, among them “Listen to the Mockingbird,” done by Stuart Duncan and Dolly Parton; “Wildwood Flower,” performed by Sam Amidon; and a heartbreaking “Lorena,” which was beloved by soldiers on both sides of the war, sung by bluegrass master Del McCoury. A couple of the most popular songwriters of the war years are well represented. Stephen Foster songs include “Beautiful Dreamer,” sung by Cowboy Jack Clement (who died in August); an instrumental version of “Old Folks at Home,” by Noam Pikelny and David Grisman; and a heartfelt “Hard Times” by ex-Byrd/ Flying Burrito Brother Chris Hillman. But even more impressive are the songs of Henry Clay Work, who is far less remembered these days than Foster. Born in Connecticut, Work wrote songs for minstrel shows. But before you condemn him as a bigot, realize that he was an avid abolitionist whose parents’ house was used


PASATIEMPO I December 13 -19, 2013

as a stop in the Underground Railroad for escaped slaves fleeing to Canada. His abolitionist views frequently come across in his minstrel songs. More on Work’s works later. Loretta Lynn kicks off the album with “Take Your Gun and Go, John,” a song about a farm woman sending her husband off to battle. “Don’t fear for me nor the children, John, I’ll care for them you know,” she sings. It’s not only child care she'll be dealing with, but heavy agricultural labor as well. “Ruth can drive the ox, dear John, and I can use the hoe.” One of the few gung-ho, go-team songs here is “Marching Through Georgia,” written by Work and performed by Old Crow Medicine Show. It starts off sad and slow, but after one verse and chorus, it erupts into a joyful hoedown as the Yanks drive the rebels to the sea. From the Confederate side, there’s The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band’s upbeat “Secesh,” which is the story of a Southern kid excited about going to Shiloh. “I’ll put a rifle on my back and there I’ll be a soldier.” But more typical for Divided & United are songs that take a hard look at war, songs like T Bone Burnett’s “The Battle of Antietam” (a song about two brothers on opposite sides in the war); Lee Ann Womack’s gut-wrenching “The Legend of the Rebel Soldier,” which deals with a Confederate soldier dying in a “dreary Yankee prison”); and John Doe’s “Tenting on the Old Campground,” in which the former X man sings, “Many are the hearts weary tonight, wishing for the war to cease/Many are the hearts looking for the right to see the dawn of peace.” Steve Earle and Dirk Powell engage in a little historical revisionism in “Just Before the Battle, Mother.” The original version tells of a brave Union soldier proud to die for a noble cause. But in this version, the narrator remembers his mother’s advice that “discretion is the better part of valor,” and he deserts when he sees the Confederate army approach. Most of the songs deal with the soldiers and their families left behind — their hardships, horrors, and occasional joys. There were others whose lives were turned upside down by the war — the slaves. A few, probably too few, selections in Divided & United tell those stories. Taj Mahal does a rousing version of “Down by the Riverside,” a spiritual known for its chorus: “I ain't gonna study war no more.”And there's Work’s “Wake Nicodemus,” performed by the Carolina Chocolate Drops (under the title “Day of Liberty”). It's about an old slave whose last dying wish was to be woken up when freedom finally came for the slaves. “He was known as a prophet — at least was as wise — for he told of the battles to come,” recites Chocolate Drop Dom Flemons. A longtime personal favorite is “Kingdom Come,” another Work tune, sung by Pokey LaFarge. Sometimes known as “Year of Jubilo,” this is one of those classic tunes you’d probably recognize by its melody, if not the lyrics. It was used extensively in Ken Burns’ Civil War series, not to mention a couple of Tex Avery cartoons. Originally written for a minstrel show, this classic was meant to ridicule the white masters and overseers rather than the black slaves. In the song, the master has been frightened away from the plantation by Union gunships. The slaves are celebrating, locking the cruel overseer in the smokehouse, throwing the key down the well, and helping themselves to the master’s liquor cabinet. “The whip is lost, the handcuffs broken, but the master will have his pay/He’s old enough, big enough, he ought to have known better than try to run away.” With the trumpet and military drums on LaFarge’s track, it’s easy to envision the Yankee army in pursuit of the fleeing plantation master ( Jubilation flashback: My favorite version of this song is by The Holy Modal Rounders, though they rewrote the lyrics. Both versions start out with the hated master “with the mustache on his face.” But in the Rounders’ hands you don’t see Lincoln’s gunships, you see Lincoln himself with “a piece of paper in his hand,” presumedly the Emancipation Proclamation. “Abe Lincoln come, ha ha/Jeff Davis go, ho ho,” they sing.) As is frequently the case with large-scale various-artist musical projects involving singer-songwriters, a few songs drift into the predictable and maudlin. But the duds are few and far between. Listeners who let Divided & United sink in can’t help but come away with a greater understanding of the Civil War and those it affected. ◀

Sympathy for the devils

Las Posadas’ main mischief maker says he’s misunderstood


hen the devil comes to Santa Fe for Las Posadas every winter, he makes sure to pack special extra-warm asbestos underwear. Las Posadas, translated as “the inns,” is a traditional pageant portraying the efforts of Joseph and the pregnant Mary to find shelter. Their pilgrim pilgrimage takes them in a circuit around the Santa Fe Plaza, accompanied by a donkey and a supportive crowd of well-wishers, while a series of devils — three this yea year — heckle them and send them on their way from various downtown rooftop rooftops. Eventually, Mary and Joseph find sanctuary at the Palace of the Govern Governors, and celebrants, including the devils, can drink cider and sing carols around a bonfire. To ad advance this year’s event, which begins at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15, and in the iinterests of balanced journalism, it only seemed fair to elicit the devils’ perspec perspectives on the event. One of the three was surprisingly easy to track down. There w was no need to follow hoof prints through the snow or to intone, “Satan, I summ summon thee!” He was readily discovered at a desk in the offices of The New Mexica Mexican, blending in perfectly. Once his true identity was uncovered, this particu particular devil was more than eager to toot his own horn(s). Pasatie Pasatiempo: You don’t look particularly devilish. Are you actually evil? Devil: Well, I have a devil-may-care attitude. I like to cause mischief and high jinks, b but I don’t think I’m evil. I’m certainly renowned for being evil. Frankly, I think I’m getting a bum rap. All that nonsense about Adam and Eve in the Garden of Evil, I mean Eden, with some snake. I didn’t give them that apple. I sugge suggested they eat oranges. They should’ve taken my advice. With no clothes, we’d al all be better off. What’s your own preferred apparel? Pasa: W Devil: I have asbestos underwear that keeps me warm. I don it when I go north of the b border. And, of course, horns and a tail. Some devils prefer a pitchfork, but I ca carry an Indiana Jones whip. Pasa:: T Tell me about Las Posadas. You send Joseph and Mary away from all these inns — Devil: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Let’s get this straight. Look at Santa Fe. This is a major ttourist destination. Do you know how many hotels there are here? Surely they ar are going to be able to find a place to stay. I’m just trying to save them from the out outrageous expense of some of these places. They charge $200 or $250 a night! That’s outright devilish.


PASATIEMPO I ????????? ??-??, 2013

Let the festivities begin

Pasa: So you’re trying to steer them toward more affordable places, like those out on Cerrillos Road? Devil: You got it. The Thunderbird Lodge. Or Motel 6, which I like to call Motel 666. Pasa: Tell me what happened last year. We were expecting you, but you never showed up. Was it stage fright? Devil: There was a huge snowstorm, and the event got canceled. Turns out Mary and Joseph and the donkey couldn’t get down from Española to do the gig. So I swung by one of the downtown bars and met up with some of Santa Fe’s more comely vixens. I can’t remember all their names, but they remember mine. We had a devilish time. Pasa: Is there a friendly rivalry between you and the other two devils? Devil: Well, I think we all know what we do best. One is very good at making deviled eggs. One makes devil’s food cake. And I’m responsible for some great phrases like “give the devil his due” and “the devil wears Prada,” which was turned into a major motion picture. In fact, if you go on IMDB, you’ll see I’m in a thousand films. Even more than Dracula and Sherlock Holmes. Pasa: Those are some of your main rivals, right? Except in Santa Fe, I imagine the list might include Zozobra, too. Devil: Yes, but that guy burns me up. And that’s why the townspeople burn him up. Pasa: You two don’t get along? Devil: Well, he’s only around for 24 hours. I’m around for 24 hours a day every day. And he can’t handle the heat. He should move north. To the north pole, even. He could give Santa and his elves some help. Pasa: Tell me about Santa: Is he really just this happy fat guy, or is he more complex than that? Devil: What, you’re asking me to psychoanalyze a mythical character? When parents tell their little children about Santa, they want them to believe some weird fat guy dressed in red — which happens to be the devil’s favorite color — comes sneaking down the chimney and leaves presents. Let me tell you, if some fat guy is breaking into your house on Christmas Eve, through the chimney or otherwise, he is not there to leave presents; he is there to take presents. And I’m hoping all the kiddies will read this article, realize there is no Santa, start crying to their parents, and get the newspaper a lot of unfavorable publicity and letters to the editor. Pasa: So you’re behind those big bags of letters that come in every week? Devil: I’m only behind the crank calls and crank letters that seem to be written by delusional people.

Las Posadas caps a weekend of holiday fun that begins Friday, Dec. 13, courtesy of the Palace of the Governors. Beginning at 5:30 p.m., Santa and Mrs. Claus drop by the Palace (105 Palace Ave.) for an action-packed evening complete with crafts, piñatas, and entertainment.

The Apprentice Devil (New Mexico History Museum/Palace of the Governors’ cleaning crew member Mauricio Rosales) I’m from Mexico — Torreón — and I’ve done this before in my country, and it was fun. Las Posadas is special, because it’s when we all get together, have posole and tamales, and spend time with our families. This is going to be my first time seeing it here. I’m probably going to be a scary diablo, and afterward I’ll return to normal. I like to act, but it’s going to be a challenge. I’m more of an angel than a devil.

PASATIEMPO I December 13 -19, 2013

Pasa: Is there a part of you that feels left out from the camaraderie of Las Posadas? Devil: When you’re asked to make a special appearance in Santa Fe, you don’t turn it down. This is a prime time for me to convert some devout worshippers over to my side. A lot of people believe God created the devil to tempt people. Let’s go back to Adam and Eve. Particularly Eve. I’m still tempting Eves all over town, and some of them are tempting me. Pasa: What kind of mischief do you have in mind for after the event? Devil: Well, one of the many things I’m planning for the new year is to mix up everyone’s income-tax returns. I also plan to get into La Fonda and switch everyone’s hotel keys one night. Plus I’m going to make grass magically grow next spring so people around Santa Fe have to buy lawn mowers. Pasa: Is that the worst of it? Devil: Remember the Obamacare website mess up? That was me. The water-main break on Cerrillos Road a couple of weeks ago? Me. Pasa: Have you been dabbling your fingers in local politics at all?

The Artistic Devil (woodworker and sculptor Roger Atkins) This year will be my third year. Las Posadas is really very peaceful, at least from my perspective. I get a view that no one else gets except for other devils — being up on a roof and looking down at the actors who play Mary and Joseph. They have these wonderful, serene smiles on their faces while they’re looking up at you. So it’s not really about being a devilish devil when you get down to it. I’m more of a happy devil, a laughing sort of “get outta here” devil, so it’s relatively easy for me to get into character. … I put on some Styrofoam horns I made that are like bull horns they’re so big.

‘Unseen traditions’ of works on paper make exclusive U.S. showing


the hierarchy of relative prestige that reigns over two-dimensional artworks, prints and drawings (often linked together under the term “works on paper”) generally take a back seat to paintings, which can more readily grab a viewer’s attention through their glamorous and diverse possibilities of color and scale. Nonetheless, prints and drawings exert a magnetism all their own. Enthusiasts of the field are among the most detail-oriented of art connoisseurs, deriving pleasure from the slightest swirl of a pen on paper or the subtle variations that distinguish successive impressions made by a single engraving plate. For the next three months, Santa Feans will have an opportunity to see what the quiet fuss is all about thanks to Renaissance to Goya: Prints and Drawings From Spain, an extensive exhibition opening Saturday, Dec. 14, at the New Mexico Museum of Art. The exhibition comprises 132 works from the collection of the British Museum in London, which unveiled it in September 2012. After that, it moved to the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid and the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia, before arriving in Santa Fe, the only American city in which it will be displayed. After the show closes here, on March 9, 2014, the works return home to London. The exhibition’s focus on prints and drawings from Spain would seem natural to a city with the heritage of Santa Fe, but for the art world at large it was not an obvious choice. Although such old masters as Velázquez, Murillo, Zurbarán, and Ribera are well known to art lovers, those artists are famous

almost exclusively for their paintings. Few museumgoers have spent much time focusing on the works on paper by those famous figures, all of whom are represented in the show. The British Museum is one of the world’s greatest repositories of Spanish works on paper. Still, in the foreword to the catalog prepared to accompany the show, the museum’s director states: “The British Museum’s Old Master prints and drawings are such a celebrated part of its collection that it comes as something of a surprise that the present exhibition is the first large-scale evaluation of its Spanish holdings.” The curator for the show is Mark P. McDonald, who serves as the British Museum’s curator of Old Master prints and Spanish drawings. “I take care of art on paper from the 16th century through the 18th century,” he explained in a recent telephone conversation. “My main job involves not things Spanish, but it’s my specialist interest, you could say. The main part of my job is Italian and French prints. We know so much more about them than about Spanish prints, but Spanish art is a great interest of mine.” Although limiting the show to 132 items involved painful selectivity, one senses something encyclopedic in what McDonald achieved. “Encyclopedic” is certainly the right word to describe the weighty, lavishly produced catalog. It documents a great many artists who qualify as obscure even to historians, including some whom McDonald insists deserve substantial reputations that have so far eluded them: the 16th-century master Alonso Berruguete, the 17th-century figures Francisco Camilo and Sebastián continued on Page 38

Sketches of Spain, continued from Page 36 de Herrera Barnuevo, the 18th-century artist José Camarón y Bononat. In all, the show presents a panorama of Spanish works on paper from the mid16th century through the first quarter of the 19th. The artist represented by the most works by far — 26 pieces — is the one whose prints and drawings will be most familiar to viewers, Francisco de Goya. His images of political luminaries, bullfights, nightmares, and political violence are among the most famous in the entire field of works on paper, but they are often viewed as emerging out of nowhere, works of genius created by spontaneous generation. Although they stand as the destination of this exhibition, McDonald hopes they may now appear as less solitary achievements, as works that emerge out of a vibrant national tradition. “This is the first time ever,” he said, “that so many Spanish prints and drawings are being shown in an arthistorical forum, so to speak. Spain sort of dropped off the map in this field. This exhibition has been a great way to place Spain back on the artistic map through showing such marvelous, high-quality, fascinating prints and drawings. My goal in the show is to explore how unseen traditions can be so exciting.” In a conversation with Pasatiempo, McDonald shared further thoughts on Renaissance to Goya: Prints and Drawings From Spain.


PASATIEMPO I December 13 -19, 2013

Pasatiempo: It strikes one as strange that Spanish prints and drawings prior to Goya have been so steadfastly ignored, even by scholars in Spain. Why do you think this happened? Mark P. McDonald: It is a hard question to answer. I think it comes down to two factors. The first is the inaccessibility of Spanish art collections; many scholars did not know these things even existed. The second problem is that there are far fewer Spanish prints and drawings as compared to Italy. In Spain, there was not the same historical tendency to keep such works safe and sound, to keep them intact. All through Spain I have seen evidence of marvelous prints and drawings being treated fairly badly and sometimes evidence of works that have simply not survived. Those two factors join to ensure that works on paper have not taken center stage as they have in, for example, Italy or Germany. Pasa: And yet it seems that, at least in some cases, prints and drawings were far from occasional entries in an artist’s output. The 17th-century master José de Ribera produced more than a hundred prints, many of them completely independent from paintings — not preliminary efforts connected to more developed works but rather self-standing, final artworks in their own right. Are there historical reasons that explain why some of these artists were more involved in this area than others?

McDonald: I think a far greater drawing practice took place than we think of. There is no way those huge 17th-century paintings could have been made without being sketched out first in drawings. I’m quite certain that many more were made in each case but have not survived. This may be because, compared to Italy, Spain had far fewer students who surrounded the masters and eagerly collected their drawings; the apprentice system in Spain was not so structured. In Italy, we find students fighting over drawings by certain masters. Then, too, in 16th-century Florence, for example, we find artists who were famous precisely for their sketching and drawing; so their work in these areas was sought out by collectors in their city and also in surrounding towns, which were relatively accessible. Spain is a more vast country, and its cities were fairly cut off from each other. The result was that there was not so much artistic exchange. Pasa: How did the British Museum become such a repository of Spanish works on paper? McDonald: Many of the finer Spanish drawings were sold in Spain to foreigners. Most of the strongest drawings in our collection came to us in the 19th century, especially from the 1820s through the 1850s. At that time, there were merchants in Spain specifically targeting foreign buyers. For centuries in England, there had been a strong interest in collecting drawings, so these merchants were playing into an established market. Pasa: Your own scholarship includes a study of a huge collection of prints amassed in Seville in the early 16th century by Ferdinand Columbus, son of the explorer. Was he truly an exception? Were there not early collectors of prints and drawings in Spain after him? McDonald: Ferdinand Columbus — my other passion! He died in 1539, and he spent years traveling through Italy and Germany, buying prints, which he sent back to Seville for his personal archives there. He had an inventory of 3,200-odd prints, most of which he acquired by 1525. He was the earliest known art-on-paper collector anywhere, basically. And he was based in Spain, so we can say that interest in collecting works on paper did start earlier there than elsewhere. He sort of started something in Spain, but after him, interest in this area developed more strongly among collectors in Rome, Paris, and Germany. Pasa: Because drawings in particular were sometimes produced as preliminary studies for eventual paintings, do you find that they are often unsigned? Is attribution a big challenge in this period of Spanish drawings? McDonald: I’ve torn out quite a few strands of hair over this. It is a thorny, complex problem. There are very many finished drawings for which we lack certain attribution, although we may gain answers in years to come. My study doesn’t go into attribution too much. I’m more keen to talk about things we know about than about things we don’t know about. Pasa: We think of prints as artworks, but there was also a more practical, commercial aspect to printmaking. Printing books, for example, was a form of printmaking, and your show includes a wonderful hand-colored woodcut, made in Madrid

in 1587, of an uncut sheet of playing cards. Were the same artists active in “artistic” and “commercial” printmaking? McDonald: We need to understand prints through their function. A sheet of playing cards is clearly not the same as a top-end engraving. And yet, an engraver’s activity could cover both top-end artistic pieces and more commercial pieces like playing cards or maps. If made at the same time, a print’s value is informed by its function. I try to not go on too much about high culture versus low culture, but we should not view this field just in terms of top-end prints. A printmaker making spectacular engravings might also make prints with another purpose; if someone was paying, they’d say, fine. And even talking about artistic production, you will find during those centuries some cheaper prints in top-end collections and some expensive prints in more ordinary collections. There was no clear-cut distinction between top-end and low-end. Pasa: When we look at prints and drawings by Goya, we have no trouble identifying their Spanish themes, and we recognize them more-or-less automatically as Spanish. But when you look at works on paper from the two centuries preceding Goya, what are some characteristics that leap out as quintessentially Spanish? McDonald: In drawings, there is a preponderant use of pen and ink. Quite often the drawings don’t have a terribly “finished” quality; they are more likely to seem to be exploratory studies. Obviously we have some highly finished drawings, but not too many. And, generally speaking, they are on quite small sheets of paper. So: pen and ink, smaller sheets, a not highly finished feel. In terms of subject, the Spanish artists were strongly attracted to architectural and saintly subjects, and we have very few genre subjects and few landscapes. Pasa: Apart from Goya, your show does not focus on famous artists. Indeed, a few reviewers have worried that the show is overwhelmed by a preponderance of obscure names. Would I be correct to assume that you do not agree with them? McDonald: I don’t agree at all. The exhibition opens a brand new subject, and all new subjects have the same problem: they are not established in the canon of acceptability, and so they don’t automatically have “unquestioned” status. Almost no person will question the quality of a 16th-century Italian drawing, although in my view quite a few are scrappy and marginal. But because they are so well established, nobody will object to them. If you are obsessed with just masterpieces of famous artists, then you shall see nothing else. Unknown does not mean not good. ◀

ART OF SPACE Paul Weideman

2013: A spaces odyssey he real-estate market in Santa Fe now is very slow compared with that of the pre-recession mid-2000s, but new houses are being built here and there. An especially active segment is for smaller contemporary homes, according to Gabriel Browne, the principal of Praxis Architects. His 1,615-square-foot residence for James David and Gary Peese fits the description. It’s basically contemporized Santa Fe style, with sharp-edged corners, silver anodized-aluminum windows, and a casita stuccoed a deep gray-green. Inside, the house — which received the annual Honor Award from the American Institute of ArchitectsSanta Fe on Dec. 12 — exhibits some dramatic flair. One example is the staircase. The clients, who are fans of the Dutch designer Axel Vervoordt, “had a vision of what they call ‘elemental,’ so they didn’t want veneers or what I call thin finishes,” Browne said. The

staircase is simply composed of thick slabs of wood and sheets of black steel, with two bends. “We called it the origami staircase because the vision is of a long, thin piece of steel that sort of wraps upward.” There’s an interesting story behind the house, on Hadisway Avenue in the Fort Marcy area. One day, after more than a year of planning work, Browne was standing with the clients on their lot. He had discovered that the area was still zoned for 21 units per acre and mentioned that this would permit the owner of the neighboring lot to tear down the two old, existing buildings and put up six new units — right across from the clients’ main view-window. David and Peese asked the architect to keep an eye out in case that lot came on the market. They departed and, just 20 minutes later, a Realtor friend approached Browne. “It was Dia Winograd. She was my neighbor when I was 7 years old, growing up in Dixon,” Browne said. “I asked her what she was doing there, and she told me she was about to list that lot. It turns out it was owned by other old hippie friends of ours from Dixon. Their grandmother had lived in the house there.”

The clients probably hoped to be able to purchase the lot in a few months, or perhaps weeks, but Browne called them barely a half-hour after they left, and they ended up buying it. The job on the new lot involved remodeling both a concrete-block casita and a 1960s adobe main building, a house that Browne described as “classic hippie-built.” Is that just a casual descriptive term, or is it something that qualifies as a style? “I have a Ph.D. in hippiebuilt, and I think it’s a vernacular,” Browne said. “It adopted the vernacular techniques but added decorative flourishes that are unique. That was very much what was going on when I was growing up in Dixon, between 1969 and maybe 1985, when I went away to school. You weren’t an adult until you built your own house.” Another handmade house, one that boasted a personality best described as ultra-eclectic, was the subject of a singular “renovation” that brought a 2013 AIA-

Santa Fe Merit Award to Spears Architects. This was the 1930s building known as Seton Castle, the home and education center of famed naturalist Ernest Thompson Seton. It burned down in 2005, two years after the property was purchased by the Academy for the Love of Learning. “The fire totally decimated the building, but the stone walls were still standing,” said Beverley Spears, who won the award for her design work to stabilize the castle ruins. “The site was cleaned up, but then the academy had the decision about what to do with the ruins. It was decided to stabilize them and keep that as a memorial to Seton but also as almost a standing sculpture for meditation and certain events. One two-story wall is kind of on a hillside, so it was a rather complex situation.”

Her additions often served more than one purpose. One example was stabilizing the walls of the former library, which was the heart of Seton Castle. This was done with hefty, hollow steel tubes placed to recall the vigas that had burned. Similarly, the west-facing porch was rebuilt in rugged steel, and plate steel was employed to line windows — both for support and appearance. “The question was how to stabilize the walls for safety and permanence and make the space navigable, usable,” Spears said. “There was a lot that went into it structurally, and we wanted to be in keeping with the original house.” continued on Page 42

Freeman residence in Corrales by Krupnick Studio; photo courtesy Michael Freeman

The second of three Merit Awards was given to Krupnick Studio for its Freeman residence in Corrales. “The interesting thing about this and all my projects since this one is that I fully engage the client as a design partner,” Michael Krupnick said. “Instead of being the great architect with all the grand ideas, we sit down as a team all the way through.” His clients, an engineer and a sustainable-building consultant, had a pretty solid idea of what the home would be. It had to be durable, green, and maintenance free. They and the architect came up with the concept and floor plan in two days. Details of appearance took a few months to iron out. “Aesthetics comes second, but it’s the only thing that matters in the end,” Krupnick said. “My idea of green is that if it’s not beautiful, it’s not green, because it’s going to get torn down. I saw way too many awesome ’60s adobes with solar sunrooms and Trombe walls that were so ugly that everyone tore them down as soon as they could.” The Freeman house has lots of insulation and solar panels and was awarded the highest LEED for Homes certification, Platinum. “It’s an awesome house: humble, clean, green, and soft and sexy in some areas. It looks and feels like concrete block, and that fits into the neighborhood, with corrugated metal and concrete block and pipe fencing around the property. “The clients wanted an award-winning, fun architectural piece [which includes a 19-foot cantilevered roof off the kitchen and dining room], but the neighbors say it looks like a horse barn. It’s exciting that it worked out so well.” The third AIA-Santa Fe Merit Award recipient was still farther afield — a residence in St. George, Utah, by Archaeo Architects, Santa Fe. A set of very rigid covenants in the Kayenta subdivision made this a challenge. “They virtually don’t want the houses to be seen, so there’s a 12-foot height restriction and many stylistic restrictions,” said Jon Dick, Archaeo’s principal. “You can’t even have an exposed bulb visible from the exterior.” The house is essentially in the Santa Fe style. “I gestured to the historical vernacular of the hacienda courtyard. I tried to break up the massing to make it look as if there are several structures collected around a courtyard, but in fact it’s all one.” Dick’s strategies for admitting views of the area’s tremendous red-rock formations and bringing light into the abode are the use of broad, butt-glazed corner windows and, in other places, narrow windows that extend upward and transition into skylights. The architect pushed for traditional pigmented plaster on the interior walls. Nobody in St. George does that, and the team ended up using Santa Lucia Plasterers (Gustavo Duran) in Santa Fe. “The floors are pigmented concrete, but in the kitchen they’re black walnut. We found some monks in the northeast who harvest the walnut environmentally, using horse and wagon, and the clients loved that.” AIA-Santa Fe awarded honorable mentions to three projects: College Town, a 129,000-square-foot residential/commercial project near Florida State University in Tallahassee, by Krupnick Studio; the rebuilding of the historic, fire-damaged Santo Domingo Trading Post by Spears Architects; and the new Santa Fe Trails bus shelters by Autotroph Design (Alexander Dzurec, principal). ◀

Whistler’s etchings show his place in 19th-century revival of artform

ince the world began there have only been two supreme etchers — Rembrandt and Whistler,” Joseph Pennell writes in his 1919 book Etchers and Etching. Pennell, an etcher and a friend and biographer of James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903), asserts that Whistler’s genius was in employing etching for the expression of ideas and impressions using a minimal number of lines. Etching is about line. If an artist uses fewer lines to convey a landscape or a portrait or a genre scene, every line must count and, as Pennell writes, “every bit of it has life and meaning and character.” Pennell is one of a number of

Whistler’s contemporaries whose works are included in the exhibition Whistler and Company, on view at Argos Studio/Gallery through Jan. 4. The show draws from the extensive print collection of Robert Bell, an ophthalmologist and lecturer on fine art prints at New Mexico Highlands University. It is a chronologically arranged body of work that places Whistler amid a 19th-century etching revival and emphasizes his sphere of influence. Whistler and Company is Argos’ eighth in a series of historic print exhibits based on Bell’s collection. The show covers Whistler’s early years as well as his time in France and England. It includes what is possibly Whistler’s earliest print, The Coast Survey Plate, a commissioned etching made for the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey, in which the inex-

perienced printmaker doodled in the margins of the plate. This act might have contributed to his dismissal from the project, which was intended as a series of etchings of coastal and topographical maps. But Maria Naylor, author of Etchings of James McNeill Whistler, writes that the dismissal was the result of his repeated absences from the job. Whistler, a native of Lowell, Massachusetts, was something of an irascible figure whose critics often became his enemies. When the artist arrived in England in the 1850s, he spent time with his brother-in-law Francis Seymour Haden, who was considered a prominent force in the revival of etching in England because of his dedication to the craft. Haden helped found the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers. His work was published in Paris by Alfred Cadart, who ran a gallery

the company he kept

Seymour Haden: Old Chelsea (Out of Whistler’s Window), 1867, etching

Mortimer Menpes: Portrait, Old Woman, Normandy, 1880s, drypoint

for etchers that included works by Impressionists Berthe Morisot and Édouard Manet. Etchings were an affordable art form for the middle class, and with well-known artists treating the medium as fine art, prints became the rage. The Cadart Gallery, an etching by Adolphe Martial Potémont, depicts throngs of Parisians lining up to buy prints from the gallery. “I put that print in the show to show that the etching revival was underway by the time Whistler came over to Paris,” Bell told Pasatiempo. “Cadart never published Whistler’s prints. He published a lot of Haden’s prints.” Included in the section that covers Whistler’s years in France is a self-portrait dating to 1859, possibly the artist’s first self-portrait done as an etching. Some of Whistler’s work from the late 1850s was published as a collection called The French Set; six examples Above, Whistler: Sunlight Soap, 1905, etching, drypoint

from this series are included in the exhibit — genre scenes in which Whistler chose the underprivileged lower classes and old tenement housing as his subjects. His friends and acquaintances in Paris included Impressionists Camille Pissaro, Mary Cassatt, and the early modernist Auguste Rodin. Examples of their etchings are included in the exhibit. Whistler’s work clearly affected the etchings of other artists. After his return to England in the late 1850s, he followed the publication of The French Set with a series of etchings of the Thames, published individually at first, and then as a set. These were among the works praised by Pennell for Whistler’s handling of line. Whistler’s Thames images clearly show how line is used continued on Page 46 Paul Helleu: Portrait of Whistler, 1897, drypoint



If an artist uses fewer lines to convey a landscape or a portrait or a genre scene, every line must count.

Whistler, continued from Page 45 economically to suggest a setting on the water without the need for fine detail and also to suggest tonal ranges. Douglas Ian Smart’s etchings of the Thames, made much later, show Whistler’s influence in terms of style and subject matter. Whistler’s Nocturnes, a series that included nighttime scenes of the Thames, shows the impact of Japanese woodblock printing on the artist’s work. Nocturne in Blue and Gold — Old Battersea Bridge, a color lithograph made by a cataloger of Whistler’s named Thomas Robert Way from an original pastel by Whistler, shows the innovative use of flecked paint to portray harbor lights and fireworks that characterized Whistler’s style at the time. It was, in part, this approach to material that led artist and critic John Ruskin to write in a published letter, “I have seen, and heard, much of Cockney impudence before now; but never expected to hear a coxcomb ask two hundred guineas for flinging a pot of paint in the public’s face.” Whistler responded to the criticism by suing Ruskin for libel. He won the case but was only awarded a farthing, worth about one fourth of a penny, in damages. The case ruined him financially and rendered his Nocturnes unmarketable. He was lampooned in popular magazines, including Punch, a weekly British magazine of humor and satire that ran a woodcut of the Whistler/Ruskin trial depicting the artist with whistles for legs. A caricature by Leslie Ward, done as a lithograph in 1878 for Vanity Fair and titled A Symphony, shows the effete, monocled artist with a long cigarette in his hand — an image of the man that became indelible. Despite the setback caused by the trial, Whistler would recover. “He recovered by getting an advance from the Fine Art Society, [which] told him it would pay him to do 12 etchings of Venice,”

Bell said. “He stayed for just about a year, and he did many more etchings and pastels. He had a show as soon as he got back. The etchings were criticized as being unfinished. A couple of months later, he showed the pastels, which were very successful.” The Venice etchings, like his earlier work, contain a lot of white space that reads as water and sky. Whistler added just enough detail to render a complete scene using the subtlest of form to suggest architecture and movement on the calm waters of the Venice canals. Younger etchers followed suit, including Pennell, Hedley Fitton, and James McBey, all of whom are represented in the exhibit. “You can see the stylistic influence,” Bell said. “The James McBey etching of Venice can be substituted for one of Whistler’s. It was almost done as a homage to Whistler.” More than 90 prints are on view in Whistler and Company, making this a rare opportunity to see many prints by Whistler and other artists in one location. While Whistler was certainly a master of the etching medium, Pennell’s effusive praise amounts to idolatry. He positions Whistler as an artist who broke in on an existing scene and became its paragon. “Whistler and Rembrandt left no followers,” he writes. “They cannot be followed — that is, imitated — in their greatness.” Whistler and Company reveals that other artists did try to follow, but few achieved Whistler’s prominence. ◀

Monsters, monsters everywhere Sea beasties and the maps they haunt 48

PASATIEMPO I December 13 -19, 2013

e have all seen them in reproductions, those maps of a geographically naive world in which the waves of immeasurable oceans are populated by fearsome creatures. What may not have crossed our minds is that there exists a subculture of people who study these fantastical beasts and discuss them exhaustively with one another — and, more amazing still, that they do so with no apparent sense of bemusement or irony. In the introduction to his opulently illustrated volume Sea Monsters on Medieval and Renaissance Maps, published in June, Chet Van Duzer writes of these cartographic creatures, “Curiously, the subject has been little studied.” And yet his copious endnotes suggest that scholars have indeed been cultivating a vigorous dialogue on the topic, communicating in the pages of arcane journals through such flirtatiously titled articles as “Animals in Context: Beasts on the Hereford Map and Medieval Natural History,” “The Sea Monsters of Olaus Magnus: Classifying Wonder in the Natural World of Sixteenth Century Europe,” and “Erudition on Display: The ‘Scientific’ Illustrations in Pico della Mirandola’s Manuscript of Pliny the Elder’s Natural History.” That scholarly round robin seems to be getting ever more active, by the way. Only a few weeks after Van Duzer’s book was published, a related one appeared: Joseph Nigg’s Sea Monsters: A Voyage Around the World’s Most Beguiling Map, from the University of Chicago Press. Whereas Nigg trains his microscope on the organisms inhabiting a single map — the Carta Marina produced by Olaus Magnus in Sweden sometime between 1527 and 1539 — Van Duzer stakes a claim as a generalist. He casts his net wide through the oceans of maps produced by European cartographers beginning with a series of mappaemundi (“maps of the world”) illustrating medieval manuscripts of the Commentary on the Apocalypse by Beatus of Liébana. The most striking among them is the “Gerona Beatus mappamundi” from the year 975. Here, the known bits of Europe, Africa, and Asia — separated by the Mediterranean, Nile, and Tanais — float entirely encircled by the ocean. In that moat-like sea we find images of ships and of more-or-less recognizable fishes, but also of stranger creatures: for example, the serra (or “sawfish”), which would swim beneath boats and slice them in half with its serrated fin (so Isidore of Seville assured his readers), or such terrestrial-aquatic hybrids as the marine chicken and the marine dog. Crossbreeds of that sort grew logically from the enduringly influential observations of the natural world promulgated by Pliny the Elder (A.D. 23-79); “so the vulgar notion may be true,” he wrote, “that anything which is produced in any other department of Nature, may be found in the sea as well.” From there, Van Duzer works his way through a plethora of historical maps, which fall into three categories: mappaemundi, which provided a general idea of the extent of the world; nautical charts (or portolan charts), which offered relatively detailed guidance for the navigation of shorelines and coastal cities; and maps of the ports themselves (of which Van Duzer considers only one example, an 11th-century sketch-map of the Italian port of Brindisi). “It is important to emphasize that the majority of medieval maps do not have sea monsters,” he cautions. Still, those that do are numerous, and our ancestors found that they served a laudable educational purpose. In his 1510 treatise De cardinalatu, for instance, the author Paolo Cortesi proposed that the palaces of cardinals include among their decorations world images or maps of recent geographical discoveries. He writes:

The same holds true for paintings that show the remarkable nature of various creatures, in which the diligence of observation is the more praiseworthy the less familiar the species portrayed in the paintings. In these types of curiosities and tales, therefore, the praiseworthy depictions are those that allow the intellect to be sharpened through interpretation, and through whose learned delineation the mind is made more erudite. While it cannot be said that Van Duzer’s prose is spirited, it is scrupulously precise, more given to description and historical minutiae than to the interpretation Cortesi hoped such images might inspire. Chapter headings suggest a degree of levity not conveyed in the text itself, but the information is not without interest. A section titled “How to Buy a Sea Monster,” for example, considers a legal document penned in Florence in 1400. It clarifies that the pricing of a luxury map reflected the number of illustrative figures included in the painting and that the inclusion of an inordinately large number of such illustrations encouraged the artist to dig deeper into his imagination. Writes Van Duzer: “It seems likely that when an artist was paid to paint a large number of sea monsters on a map, he would do so without seeking information on works of natural history about where a particular sea monster had been seen. That is, payment for a large number of sea monsters changed their nature, tending to separate them from their geographical or historical sources, and thus reducing their geographical significance on the resulting map.” In the world of sea-monsters-on-maps people, it is best to simply accept that the authenticity of a creature is predicated on its pedigree in historical scientific sources rather than on whether or not it actually existed. It would seem impolite to object that a hybrid fish-pig-dog one might find on an early map never actually swam the seas, even if some natural-history treatise suggested that it did. A redefined position on reality allows readers to go

Sea monsters, continued from Page 49 ahead and luxuriate in tales that do us no harm — and especially to delight in the accompanying images — even if those stories and pictures would have struck terror into the hearts of Renaissance mariners. Take, for example, the improbable legend inscribed on a richly decorated nautical chart made in 1413 by the Catalan cartographer Mecia de Viladestes, which amplifies on the ancient belief that whales could be mistaken for land masses: This sea is called “mar bocceano,” and therein are found great fish, which sailors take to be small islands and take up their quarters on these fish, and the sailors land on these islands and make fires, and cause such heat that the fish feels it and sets itself in motion, and they have no time to get on board and are lost; and those who know this, land on the said fish, and there make thongs of its back and make fast the head of the ship’s anchor, and in this way they flay the skin off it, whereof they make sraianes [ropes?] for their ships, and of this skin are made good coverings for haystacks. Variations on this marine myth recur quite a bit, sometimes citing St. Brendan as the first person to perch a boat on a whale. Martin Behaim’s terrestrial globe, constructed in 1492, incorporates a text that leads to a happier ending for the sailors: “He [St. Brendan] is said to have landed on this fish, thought it was dry land, and lit a fire on this fish. When the back of the fish began to burn, it plunged into the sea. The people reembarked in their boats and fled to the ship. This event is not reported by the Portuguese infidels.” The earlier sea monsters Van Duzer considers are depicted in illuminations, drawn or painted on manuscript maps. The painting of sea monsters eventually emerged as a specialist’s pursuit. In


PASATIEMPO I December 13 -19, 2013

considering Pierre Descelier’s “large ... and gloriously coloured manuscript world map of 1550,” Van Duzer finds that it “is not very rich in sea monsters.” But the sirens and monsters it does include are clearly overpainted in a style markedly different from the paint application on the underlying map, evidence (Van Duzer argues) “of a specialist in sea monsters in Descelier’s atélier.” By that time, mapmaking had largely intersected with the field of printmaking. Some of the most elaborate depictions of sea monsters on maps are found on 16th-century maps printed as engravings or from woodblocks. A few persisted even into the 17th century, when Honorius Philoponus’ Nova typis transacta navigatio (published in Linz in 1621) included a map of the eastern Atlantic that conflates the St. Brendan legend with a depiction of the missionary journeys of the monk (or friar) Bernardo Buil, who has set up an entire altar on the back of an aquatic beast. “But with the close of the sixteenth century,” reports Van Duzer, “the period of the most florid development and widest use of sea monsters on maps had come to an end.” By then, these creatures had graced maps for hundreds of years, often depicted side by side with ships. The ships persisted, receding from the cartographer’s realm only in the 18th century. “In fact,” Van Duzer writes, “the two motifs are to a certain extent antithetical: while sea monsters on maps discourage human sea travel by indicating its grave dangers and uncertainties, most images of ships on maps boldly affirm the ability of humans to traverse the watery element, encouraging new voyages and even affirming political control over the seas.” ◀

Michael Abatemarco I The New Mexican

oss Chaney, the current artist in residence at the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts, grew up in Oklahoma. He is a member of the Osage and Cherokee tribes and overcame severe dyslexia as a child, going on to pursue a career in business. Chaney, an economic-development specialist for the city of Santa Fe, is a self-taught artist whose work appears simple on the surface, with a free-flowing sense of color, form, and line. In his renderings of people and faces he contrasts bright colors with black, expressing melancholy emotions. In his nonfigurative pieces he explores color relationships and patterns. Chaney’s sculptures are representational, but his sumi-e ink drawings and acrylic canvases are abstractions. In contrast with many of his Native contemporaries, Chaney creates art that is not centered on anything specifically Indian. His work is conceptual, subliminal, and spontaneous. His background is in international

relations and political science, interests that led him to receive a master’s degree in international relations from the Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto. On Sunday, Dec. 15, Chaney opens his studio at MoCNA to the public and gives a talk about his process at the museum. Pasatiempo: Do the ceramic pieces in your studio practice relate to the works on paper? Ross Chaney: I started working at Santa Fe Clay earlier this year. The idea was to go from the ink and the paintings and then go to the sculpture. What came out of it were these masks and faces. I also made three characters with two faces or two sides to their heads. The idea is that these characters are sculpting the masks and faces because they’re trying to make them look more human. Pasa: The paintings and drawings have less figuration than the clay. What are some of the themes informing this work? Chaney: An immediate theme is complexity theory, or fractals, to be more specific. It’s seeing repeated patterns. No matter how indepth you look or how far you pull out, it’s

connected. They share the space even though it doesn’t seem like it when you take just one part of the whole. That’s a general theme with the community. Working in one part of the community relates to the others. It’s all a system that’s connected. So I balance out the artwork with my nonprofit and community work. The theme there is on health. But I’m mostly interested in children’s mental health. Pasa: This interest prompted you to work with youth and help them work through grief. Is this something you experienced yourself as a child? Chaney: It stemmed from when my parents died. My dad died when I was 14. My mom died when I was 18. He had a heart attack, and my mom had terminal cancer. It was pretty intense for a teenager to get the information, at 17, that your mother has terminal cancer. At 19, I had to figure out, in order just to stay sane, what my goals should be. I was interested in business through high school. I had gone through three semesters of college. I thought, well, economic development for continued on Page 54

tribes, because that will fund all the other programs. At the same time, what I didn’t realize until years later was that you have to process that grief that you experienced. Unresolved grief can create problems. I’ve worked with Gerard’s House, the children’s grief center in Santa Fe, since 2004 to help local kids process their grief. I work with 3-year-olds to 20-year-olds. Pasa: You never pursued a degree in fine arts, but is art making an activity that interested you as a child, or did this interest develop later on? Chaney: I’ve always been artistic. I grew up in the 1980s with a sense of, OK, you need to go out and go to school. That’s the avenue to opportunities. And the avenue to a job is a business degree. So I didn’t study art in college, because that wasn’t congruent with the thinking as far as this 1980s business track. Business wasn’t something my parents put me on. That was the construct of the time. I won a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship, and its focus was on politics and international affairs. They wanted me to do what I’m doing now, which is go work for a municipality and be involved in economic development or policy development. I studied economic development of the region of East Asia. I went to Japan and studied business and law. I was going to a lot of Japanese gardens and shrines and admiring the artwork, but I still wasn’t taking classes or doing artwork. It wasn’t until 10 or 12 years ago that I really started focusing on the artwork as a balance between all that math and structure. Pasa: What was it like for you at a young age having to deal with your dyslexia? Obviously it didn’t prevent you from earning several graduate degrees. Chaney: I changed around schools a lot. The teachers determined that I had some kind of autism or severe learning disability, so they took me out of my regular classes and put me with severe learning disability children. And it just wasn’t the case. I had dyslexia and I couldn’t read and write or spell, but I wasn’t severely learning impaired. The point was, I hated school, avoided school, and did everything I could to get out as quickly as possible. I’ve spent so much time in structure, theory, and business and those kinds of cultures that I really didn’t want art school to be like that. I wanted to find out on my own and make my own mistakes. So I spent money on supplies and not on course hours. Pasa: While tribal culture and heritage are not explicit themes in your work, are there ways in which they have informed it? Chaney: Absolutely tribal culture has an influence, but it’s not something I’m trying to translate or retranslate. I grew up on the Osage reservation. Every summer in June there’s the I’Lon-Schka dances with the Osage. The house I lived in was right around the corner from the dance grounds. It’s a part of my memory. One thing that came out two or three years ago was having this memory of Oklahoma and being in the third grade and having Indian art education classes. We would paint these kachinas and things — nothing related to me specifically as Cherokee or Osage. I was seeing how some of those taught themes came back in some of my later work, and I thought, Where is this image coming from? Maybe it is Native iconography. How do you separate from that context of Native American art and just have a conversation as a human who is Native American and a tribal member without necessarily making the expected art? Pasa: How would you describe your working process? Do you begin with an idea or an image in your mind to work from? Chaney: It’s more like starting out with what you know when you begin. Maybe you’re drawing a face, or drawing a head, or a pattern. But then it’s more experimentation: figuring out the colors, the palette, and the mix. I made some basic rules early on, and one was not to be a perfectionist. If I dropped it or smeared it, let it be. And another was not to show or sell it. I wanted it to be a learning process with the material itself. ◀

Damned if you do Jonathan Richards I For The New Mexican Faust, drama, not rated, in German with subtitles, The Screen, 3.5 chiles The camera comes drifting down over a mythical landscape, following a handkerchief floating on gentle breezes, toward a village nestled in a forest. It’s like a bit of Forrest Gump fantasy or the opening of an animated fairy tale. Next thing you know, you’re in a dingy, squalid space and dead, gray male genitalia fill the screen. Behind them, a hand mucks around in a gaping body cavity, pulling out organs and gore. The rooting hand belongs to Dr. Heinrich Faust ( Johannes Zeiler, resembling a cross between Ralph Fiennes and Frodo Baggins), who is performing an autopsy while wrangling with his assistant Wagner (Georg Friedrich) about the exact location of the soul. This is not going to be a fairy tale after all. Faust is the final film in what director Aleksandr Sokurov calls a tetralogy of power. The first three entries dealt with historical subjects — Hitler (Moloch, 1999), Lenin (Taurus, 2001), and Hirohito (The Sun, 2005). The fourth takes on Goethe’s tale of the human lust for power. In classic Greek theater, a tetralogy consisted of three tragedies followed by a satyr play, which was essentially a bawdy burlesque. Sokurov’s quartet fits that description. Sokurov (perhaps best known here for the remarkable Russian Ark, his 2002 historical drama that tours the Hermitage and Russian history in a single 96-minute take) plunges us into a dark, filthy, crowded town, where despair and misery are rank and the odors are so manifest they almost

overpower the limitations of cinema to gag you. The period is imprecise; the feeling is medieval, but some costumes suggest something like early 19thcentury Germany. Medicine is certainly primitive. Faust visits the hospital, a filthy ramshackle place where livestock roam freely through the wards and his doctor father (Sigurður Skúlason) is stretching a patient on a rack. “It’s a good method,” the senior Faust replies to his son’s protest. “I’ve tested it on many patients.” “How many have survived?” “I’ve never counted.” The roots of all evil in this benighted town are poverty and hunger. Faust visits the local pawn establishment to see if he can raise some money with a few of his possessions, but the pawnbroker, a grotesque named Mauricius, is not interested in anything he has to offer. Not anything material, that is. Mauricius (deliciously played by Anton Adasinsky, a Soviet-era rock star) is the devil, although he modestly rejects so pretentious a title. He’s a lumpy, pear-shaped fellow with a pale, pinched face and the lumbering gait of an arthritic kangaroo. He is willing to make Faust an offer on his soul, and Faust, a man of science who scoffs at religion, is amenable to the deal. After correcting a number of spelling and grammatical mistakes in the moneylender’s contract, he signs it in his own blood and receives a purse of gold in return. A lust for power, money, and sex — that unholy trinity of human yearning — is what drives Faust to make his devil’s bargain. Mauricius takes him on a tour of a public laundry and bathhouse, and while the devil disrobes to bathe and reveals his inhuman

anatomy, Faust sees and is smitten with the beautiful laundress Margarete (Isolda Dychauk). Later, Faust’s Mephistophelian contract gives him the power to seduce the fair maid. In a shot reminiscent of the male autopsy scene, we get a close-up view of the naked maiden’s dewy mound, but this time the image is bathed in light and suffused with promise. The bleak, dark palette that pervades the rest of the movie is the work of the great Bruno Delbonnel (whose work is also on display in the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis), and he paints this narrative with a gloomy intensity that recalls Rembrandt and El Greco. The bustling squalor and human folly of Sokurov’s mise-en-scene also suggest Bruegel and Bosch. He overdoes this physicality in some scenes, spilling over into a distracting slapstick of people squeezing past and tangling up with one another, including an image of a traffic jam involving a funeral procession and a cart full of pigs that could call to mind Woody Allen. Comedy aside, there’s a lot of darkness, both visual and spiritual, to this tale. The devil turns out to be a creature of limitations, after all. His pawnshop is cluttered to the rafters with the stuff of human misery, but, as he complains to Faust, “the things I have do not belong to me. They could be redeemed at any minute.” The languages of pawn and of religion share a certain lexicon. When it came out in 2011, Sokurov’s Faust won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, where it drew a distinctly mixed critical and public reception. It’s not an across-the-board crowd pleaser. But love it or hate it, this is a visually splendid, hallucinatory picture that will stick with you. ◀

Jonathan Richards I For The New Mexican


Nebraska, comedy-drama, rated R, Regal DeVargas, 3 chiles Woody Grant has won a million dollars. That’s what it says, in big, bold letters, in the direct-mail letter he has received from the Publishers Clearing House. And he’s determined to get to Lincoln, Nebraska, to collect his winnings. Woody (Bruce Dern) is in his late 70s, a bit addled with a touch of dementia helped along by a lifetime of heavy drinking. He doesn’t drive. So he sets out on foot from his home in Billings, Montana, walking along the highway, where the cops keep picking him up a few miles from home and bringing him back. His scolding wife, Kate ( June Squibb), tells him he’s nuts, and his sons, Ross (Bob Odenkirk) and David (SNL’s Will Forte), try to convince him that it’s a scam, but Woody won’t be budged, and every chance he gets, he sets out for Nebraska. Finally David agrees to drive him there, partly to prove to him he’s wrong, partly to spend a little quality time together on the road. This is the slender setup for Alexander Payne’s (The Descendants, Sideways) sweet, biting, funny, wistful comedy-drama of a fading, receding American Midwest. The characters are strong, including the aging denizens of Woody’s old hometown of Hawthorne, Nebraska, where they stop en route. Among the standouts are Stacy Keach as Woody’s old service-station business partner and Angela McEwan as his high-school sweetheart. Important as any of the characters is the gorgeous black-and-white photography by Phedon Papamichael, which renders the landscape in muted, evocative charcoal sketches and brings out the lonely, nostalgic feeling of an era and a generation disappearing into the mists of the past. It’s like The Last Picture Show revisited 60 years later, with the teenagers now in their dotage. Payne had to fight to get his way with the B&W, and along with Noah Baumbach’s Frances Ha, this may be a harbinger of good things to come in resurrecting this evocative form. Dern carves out a cantankerous old coot in Woody, as stony and uncommunicative as the faces on Mount Rushmore, where David stops along the way. He’s not likable, but Dern reveals glimpses of depths and layers that make you care. Forte keeps David in character, never leaning for a moment on his comic’s arsenal. The script by Bob Nelson is beautifully crafted, with flashes of wit and well-controlled pathos. There are a few touches that baffle or irritate, including David’s inability to explain the “misunderstanding” about the million dollars to the denizens of Hawthorne, who think their old native son has struck it rich and are looking to cash in. But Nelson and Payne and their strong cast keep the negatives at bay, and they’ve drawn a memorable landscape of Americana. ◀

FOLLOWING THE NINTH: IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF BEETHOVEN’S FINAL SYMPHONY Kerry Candaele’s film takes viewers around the world in pursuit of finding out what makes Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony so universally loved. Candaele appears at the 5:45 p.m. and 8 p.m. screenings on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 13 and 14. Not rated. 90 minutes. Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe. (Not reviewed) THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG Do you remember reading the sprawling Hobbit trilogy when you were a child? Probably not, since it was a single thin book. Don’t tell director Peter Jackson, who has expanded it into epic cinema. For this sequel he’s brought the elves (including Orlando Bloom’s Legolas) aboard. Martin Freeman and Ian McKellan return as Bilbo and Gandalf, respectively, while Benedict Cumberbatch voices the dragon Smaug. Rated PG-13. 160 minutes. Screens in 3-D and 2-D at Regal Stadium 14, Santa Fe; DreamCatcher, Española.(Not reviewed)

Zen and the art of elfery: Orlando Bloom in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, at Regal Stadium 14 in Santa Fe and DreamCatcher in Española

opening this week AMERICAN PROMISE Race and class are explored in this documentary by African Americans Joe Brewster and Michèle Stephenson as they follow their son Idris and his friend Seun through 13 years of privateschool education. Not rated. 142 minutes. Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe. (Not reviewed) ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES We hope you’ve stayed classy, Santa Fe, because Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) is back, and he’s got the whole Channel 4 news team (Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner, and Christina Applegate) with him. This sequel to the much-loved 2004 comedy finds the gang headed to cable news and the 1980s. Don’t act like you’re not impressed. Opens Tuesday, Dec. 17. Rated PG-13. 119 minutes. Regal Stadium 14, Santa Fe. (Not reviewed) CHRISTMAS WITH THE DEAD Here is an often clever, sometimes disturbing, and occasionally sweet take on the zombie-apocalypse genre, with lonely Texan Calvin (Damian Maffei) determined to decorate his


PASATIEMPO I December 13 -19, 2013

house for Christmas despite the ubiquitous presence of flesh-eating ghouls all around the joint. Brad Maule is just terrific as Calvin’s newfound living friend who survived the apocalypse because he was wearing 3-D glasses. The film is based on Joe Lansdale’s short story (it’s somewhat different), and Lansdale co-produced the film. It runs out of ideas and steam near the end, but zombie-film fans will like it all the same. 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 13 and 14, only. Not rated. 86 minutes. Jean Cocteau Cinema, Santa Fe. (Robert Nott) FAUST This is the final film in what director Aleksandr Sokurov (Russian Ark) calls a tetralogy of power. The first three entries deal with historical subjects — Hitler (Moloch, 1999), Lenin (Taurus, 2001), and Hirohito (The Sun, 2005). This one takes on the root of all that evil, in Goethe’s tale of the human lust for power. A tetralogy in classic Greek theater consisted of three tragedies followed by a bawdy burlesque. Sokurov’s quartet fits that description. Despite a heavy, permeating darkness, it’s a ribald and sometimes almost slapstick rendering of the Faust myth set in a Bruegelian landscape of poverty and squalor. Not rated. 134 minutes. In German with subtitles. The Screen, Santa Fe. ( Jonathan Richards) See review, Page 56.

THE LAST DAYS ON MARS That title sounds like a metaphor, suggesting a possible indie psychodrama. Unfortunately, the film’s name is entirely literal, which makes it boring but also fitting, because the movie is really boring. There are astronauts, and they are on Mars. No one likes one another, and everyone’s tone of voice sounds either tired or annoyed. Then suddenly there are zombies, a turn of events not ridiculous enough to offer any campy fun. The talented cast, which includes Liev Schreiber and Olivia Williams, also seems really bored. Rated PG-13. 98 minutes. Jean Cocteau Cinema, Santa Fe. ( Jennifer Levin) THE MET LIVE IN HD: FALSTAFF Ambrogio Maestri stars in James Levine’s staging of Verdi’s opera, which is broadcast live from the Met. The cast also includes Angela Meade, Stephanie Blythe, and Lisette Oropesa. 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 14, with a 6 p.m. encore. Lensic Performing Arts Center, Santa Fe. (Not reviewed) NEBRASKA Woody Grant (Bruce Dern) has won a million dollars, or so his letter from Publishers Clearing House says, and he’s determined to go to Lincoln, Nebraska, to claim his prize. His son David (Will Forte) agrees to drive him, partly to prove to him he’s wrong, partly to spend a little quality time with his father on the road. This is the slender setup for a sweet, biting, funny, wistful comedy-drama of a fading, receding American Midwest from Alexander Payne (The Descendants). As important as any of the characters is the gorgeous black-and-white photography that

renders the landscape in muted, evocative charcoal washes and brings out the lonely, nostalgic feeling of an era and a generation disappearing into the past. It’s like The Last Picture Show revisited 60 years later, with the teenagers now in their dotage. Rated R. 115 minutes. Regal DeVargas, Santa Fe. ( Jonathan Richards) See review, Page 57. PERFORMANCE AT THE SCREEN The series of high-definition screenings continues with a showing of Verdi’s Les vêpres siciliennes from London’s Royal Opera House. Lianna Haroutounian and Bryan Hymel star. 11 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 15, only. Not rated. 270 minutes, including two intermissions. The Screen, Santa Fe. (Not reviewed) THE PRIME MINISTERS: THE PIONEERS Ambassador Yehuda Avner — who served as a chief aide and speechwriter to Israeli Prime Ministers Levi Eshkol, Golda Meir, Yitzhak Rabin, Menachem Begin, and Shimon Peres — serves as the center of this documentary. Sandra Bullock, Michael Douglas, and Leonard Nimoy are among the stars lending their voices. Not rated. 115 minutes. The Screen, Santa Fe. (Not reviewed)

move-’em-out action — which felt at home in the Stallone and Schwarzenegger era — gets old by the end. Rated R. 137 minutes. Jean Cocteau Cinema, Santa Fe. (Robert Ker) ALL IS LOST A man (Robert Redford) is stranded on a crippled vessel somewhere in the Indian Ocean in this often-enthralling drama from writer and director J.C. Chandor (Margin Call). All Is Lost is basically Robert Redford against the sea, and it relies on good old-fashioned storytelling to keep you involved. It’s a gutsy project that trusts its audience to trust it back, but be warned: the final third of the film gets a bit repetitious — in a most soggy manner. Rated PG-13. 106 minutes. The Screen, Santa Fe. (Robert Nott)

RICHARD II This Royal Shakespeare Company performance is broadcast from Stratford-Upon-Avon. David Tennant (Dr. Who) plays the title role. 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15, and 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 17, only. Jean Cocteau Cinema, Santa Fe. (Not reviewed)

BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR Abdellatif Kechiche’s emotionally rich drama tells the story of Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos), a high-school student whose burgeoning sexuality leads her on a journey of self-discovery after she meets Emma (Léa Seydoux), a lesbian whose openness brings Adèle out of her shell. Raw passion ignites the screen, and despite its graphic sex scenes, Blue Is the Warmest Color never strays into gimmicks or sentimentality. It’s as honest a film as you are likely to see this year. 3 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 13 and 14, only. Rated NC-17. 179 minutes. In French with subtitles. Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe. (Michael Abatemarco)

TYLER PERRY’S A MADEA CHRISTMAS What would Christmas be without a new Madea movie? Fortunately, we’ll never have to find out, because Tyler Perry seems to give us a new one every year. In this outing, Madea (Tyler Perry) takes guff from nobody yet again — this time at Christmas. Rated PG-13. 105 minutes. Regal Stadium 14, Santa Fe; DreamCatcher, Española. (Not reviewed)

THE BOOK THIEF In the last 10 years, few novels have been as beloved or heralded as Markus Zusak’s 2005 young-adult book about a girl in Nazi Germany who helps her foster parents hide a Jewish man. The film version stars Sophie Nélisse as the girl and Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson as the parents. Rated PG-13. 131 minutes. Regal DeVargas, Santa Fe. (Not reviewed)

now in theaters ALIENS James Cameron’s 1986 sequel to the sci-fi classic Alien— in which Ridley (Sigourney Weaver) once more finds herself surrounded by creepy crawlies, except this time she’s accompanied by a military unit — was once a staple of every young boy’s VHS collection. It still has plenty of thrills but hasn’t aged so well. Cameron is a special-effects genius who thinks visually and there’s lots of good gore, but the constant shoot-’em-up,

THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN Be sure to bring your hankies to the theater for this Belgian film with artful cinematography and a fantastic soundtrack. Didier ( Johan Heldenbergh) and Elise (Veerie Baetens) fall in love, have a baby, and perform in a bluegrass band until tragedy strikes. Director Felix Van Groeningen throws time in a blender, whirring around from the middle to the beginning and back. This and the sometimes soulful, sometimes toe-tapping tunes save the story from being like a Lifetime movie of the week. Ultimately, it becomes a meditation on life’s heaviest questions. Not rated. 111 minutes. In Flemish with subtitles. Jean Cocteau Cinema, Santa Fe. (Laurel Gladden)

CAPTAIN PHILLIPS Director Paul Greengrass knows how to turn newspaper headlines into whiteknuckle thrillers, having earned accolades with 2006’s United 93. This time he tells the story of Captain Richard Phillips (Tom Hanks), whose freighter was hijacked by Somali pirates in 2009. Rated PG-13. 133 minutes. Regal DeVargas, Santa Fe. (Not reviewed) DALLAS BUYERS CLUB In 1985, a cocky homophobic sex-, booze-, and drug-addicted Texas redneck named Ron Woodroof was diagnosed with HIV, then known almost exclusively as “the gay disease.” His reaction to the diagnosis, and his battle against the big-hospital/ big-pharma/FDA cartel that put profit ahead of patients, is the basis for this remarkable story. Taking it to the next level are the terrific performances of Matthew McConaughey as Woodroof and Jared Leto as his sweet but steely transvestite sidekick Rayon. Rated R. 117 minutes. Regal Stadium 14, Santa Fe. ( Jonathan Richards) DELIVERY MAN You’re not going to believe this, but in Vince Vaughn’s latest film, he plays a smartalecky slacker who learns to take responsibility for himself and others. In this case, it’s a lot of others: his character discovers that he fathered 533 children through donations to a sperm bank some 20 years earlier. Now he has to make up for lost daddy time. Rated PG-13. 103 minutes. Regal Stadium 14, Santa Fe. (Not reviewed) ENOUGH SAID Fans of Woody Allen’s rom-coms for adult audiences should embrace this charmer about two divorced empty-nesters ( Julia Louis-Dreyfus and, in his final performance, James Gandolfini) who fall for each other and then find that middle-age relationships come fraught with baggage and defense mechanisms. Louis-Dreyfus shows more depth and Gandolfini more softness than either one’s iconic TV roles would suggest; the two head a terrific cast that includes Catherine Keener and Toni Collette. Nicole Holofcener directs them all with a generous spirit. The results are moving, honest, and often very funny. Rated PG-13. 93 minutes. Regal DeVargas, Santa Fe. (Robert Ker) FROZEN Disney’s latest animated fable — and the first to be co-directed by a woman, Jennifer Lee — is a strange one: it is a tale of misunderstanding with a complicated setup but no real villain or central conflict. Two princess sisters in a fantasy kingdom are separated continued on Page 60




continued from Page 59

when one is revealed to have magical powers to summon cold, snow, and ice. With the help of a big lug ( Jonathan Groff), the younger woman (Kristen Bell) must pull her older sis out of her wintery withdrawal from society. The wacky sidekick (a talking snowman voiced by Josh Gad) is actually funny, and the character animation is wonderful. The film is a breeze, despite the awkward first act and uneven songs. Rated PG. 108 minutes. Screens in 3-D and 2-D at Regal Stadium 14, Santa Fe; DreamCatcher, Española. (Robert Ker) GRAVITY You’ve never seen a movie like this before. Tense and gripping but also tranquil and meditative, this thriller from director Alfonso Cuarón centers on two astronauts (George Clooney and Sandra Bullock) whose shuttle is destroyed while they are on a space walk. The resulting struggle to survive — like the special effects of the film itself — showcases humankind’s vast resourcefulness and potential. Cuarón’s story also celebrates how small, yet still important, we all are. Rated PG-13. 91 minutes. Screens in 3-D only at Regal Stadium 14, Santa Fe. (Robert Ker) THE GREAT BEAUTY Paolo Sorrentino’s (Il Divo) breathtaking excursion through Roman high life is a sad, funny, sexy, heartbreaking, and exquisite look at a society dancing as fast as it can to keep up with a past that can’t be caught or even quite remembered. Our guide through this funhouse labyrinth of beauty, debauchery, pretension, and yearning is Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo), an aging writer and bon vivant who made a literary splash with a slim novel 40 years ago and hasn’t been able to think of anything worth writing about since. La Grande Bellezza is a conscious and masterful updating of Fellini, a worthy 21st-century version of the dolce vita that the master painted in the middle of the 20th. Not rated. 142 minutes. In Italian with subtitles. Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe. ( Jonathan Richards) HOMEFRONT James Franco has had a weird, wild year on the silver screen, between traveling to Oz (Oz the Great and Powerful), chillin’ during spring break (Spring Breakers), adapting William Faulker (As I Lay Dying), and facing the end of the world with his pals (This Is the End). Now he takes on his most unlikely

part yet: the bad guy in a Jason Statham action pic. Rated R. 100 minutes. Regal Stadium 14, Santa Fe; DreamCatcher, Española. (Not reviewed) THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE This is a rare case of a movie that’s just as good as — possibly better than — the book on which it’s based. Defiant Katniss ( Jennifer Lawrence) has unwittingly inspired unrest in Panem, a dystopian nation where a totalitarian government punishes its citizens for their rebellion by forcing children to compete in an annual televised battle to the death. To dampen Katniss’ fire, sinister President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and new Head Gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee (the always-welcome Philip Seymour Hoffman) force her back into the arena. The phony-looking costumes and clumsy camerawork of the first film are long gone, thanks to a bigger budget and a better director (Francis Lawrence). Rated PG-13. 146 minutes. Regal Stadium 14, Santa Fe; DreamCatcher, Española. (Laurel Gladden) OUT OF THE FURNACE Originality is not the strong suit of this tough, gritty Rust Belt revenge melodrama about two brothers caught in the cold quicksand of the dead American dream, but some startlingly good performances give it life. Christian Bale is Russell, who does time for a DWI with tragic consequences, and Casey Affleck is his kid brother Rodney, a damaged veteran of four tours in Iraq whose life is in tatters and whose fists are his only resource. The excellent cast is rounded out by Zoe Saldana, Sam Shepard, Willem Dafoe, and a riveting Woody Harrelson, who takes his patented psychopath persona to new evil heights. Director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart), whose last outing won Jeff Bridges an Oscar, knows how to direct actors, but he still has trouble with the subtleties of storytelling. Rated R. 116 minutes. Regal Stadium 14, Santa Fe. ( Jonathan Richards) PHILOMENA Steve Coogan plays a down-on-his-luck journalist who takes on a human-interest story by bringing an Irish woman ( Judi Dench) to America to find her long-estranged son. The film is marketed as a lighthearted, odd-couple comedy — and there are laughs — but the material runs much deeper and darker than that. Before director Stephen Frears (The Queen) is done taking us on all of his unpredictable and oftenrewarding turns, we’ve pondered aging, forgiveness, the existence of God, the complexities of the Christian faith, and how different perspectives paint a distorted picture of one’s life. Rated PG-13. 98 minutes. Regal DeVargas, Santa Fe. (Robert Ker) THOR: THE DARK WORLD The Marvel movie machine chugs along, and at this point it seems as if the filmmakers are

more concerned with not derailing the gravy train than they are with making a great movie. Marvel is dependable; you may not leave the theater feeling inspired, but you won’t want a refund. And so it goes with the latest Thor picture, which is visually drab (the bold colors of The Avengers are gone) except when the hammer starts flying and plodding and predictable except when it attempts humor. Overall it rates as “Fine, I guess.” Rated PG-13. 111 minutes. Screens in 2-D only at Regal Stadium 14, Santa Fe; DreamCatcher, Española. (Robert Ker) 12 YEARS A SLAVE Director Steve McQueen takes us into America’s slave trade with the same clinical observation and exquisite composition that he used in his previous features, Hunger and Shame. Unfortunately, he tarnishes his adaptation of Solomon Northup’s 1853 autobiography — about the free-born man’s stint as a slave after being captured and shipped south — with too many movie moments, from the horror-film-like score and celebrity cameos to the happy ending, blunting the impact and putting his intentions into question. There’s fine acting all around, from Chiwetel Ejiofor’s star turn as Northup and Michael Fassbender’s villainous landowner to newcomer Lupita Nyong’o’s portrait of suffering. Rated R. 133 minutes. Regal DeVargas, Santa Fe. (Robert Ker) WHEN THE IRON BIRD FLIES: TIBETAN BUDDHISM ARRIVES IN THE WEST Through personal stories, this documentary describes the impact that Tibetan Buddhism’s core teachings has had on the lives of participants in the U.S., allowing them to maintain a measure of peace and relief from the trials and demands of contemporary life. Historic footage of the Chinese takeover of Tibet and plenty of talking heads offer a picture of how an international community has embraced an ancient practice from a once-remote kingdom. Not rated. 96 minutes. Jean Cocteau Cinema, Santa Fe. (Michael Abatemarco)

RESTAURANT REVIEW Bill Kohlhaase I The New Mexican

Yo soy vegan

Thai Vegan 1710 Cerrillos Road, 505-954-1780 Lunch 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. MondaysSaturdays; dinner 5-9 p.m. daily Takeout available Vegetarian only Handicapped-accessible Noise level: meditative No alcohol Credit cards, no checks

The Short Order Thai Vegan makes full use of meat substitutes in its cleanly prepared, vegetarian offerings. Soy chicken, beef, and fish can be added to the usual Thai favorites: pad Thai noodles; red, green, and yellow curries; meatless larb salad; and stir-fried noodles. These mock meats are surprisingly like the real thing in taste, appearance, and texture. The best dishes here have no pretensions to meat, and the kitchen does a good job with tofu. The vegetables in these dishes — abundant green and red peppers, carrots, mushrooms, and fresh basil — are all of the quality and expert preparation that one would expect from a vegan restaurant. Recommended: spring rolls, tom kha kai soup, spicy noodle with pepper beef, basil leaves with tofu, and lentil loaf.

Ratings range from 0 to 4 chiles, including half chiles. This reflects the reviewer’s experience with regard to food and drink, atmosphere, service, and value.


PASATIEMPO I December 13 -19, 2013

Meat substitutes have come a long way since the days when we wannabe hippies embraced vegetarianism. Back then, the only mock meats available were bean bits sold as soy burger and gray dog-food-sized chunks of vegetarian “chicken” imported from China. Now we have Quorn, Tofurky, Boca Burgers, and Soyrizo. Researchers at the University of Missouri have dedicated themselves to creating a product that duplicates not only the taste and appearance of chicken meat but its characteristic stringiness as well. Oh, brave new meatless-meat world! Thai Vegan, a sister establishment to a pair of restaurants with the same name in Albuquerque, proves you can have your mock meat and eat it, too. Located at the site of the old Dara Thai restaurant, it sports deep red walls wonderfully contrasted by black tablecloths. The menu is strictly vegan and claims its dishes are gluten free and made without monosodium glutamate, a flavoring critical to some of those old-school meat substitutes. In addition to Thai favorites, it offers wraps and burgers. French fries are prominently pictured on the menu. You might want to clarify that bit about things being gluten free if you order the homemade wheat meat “cowboy burger.” Wheat meat, or seitan, is usually made with high-gluten flour. The servers — you’re never sure which one will pop up at your table next — are glad to answer questions. The soy chicken, shrimp, beef, and fish you add to pad Thai noodles, curry, and tom kha soup are almost — almost — like the real thing. The shrimp is firm and features the characteristic pink streaking (a server told us that the color comes from tomato juice). The strips of pepper beef have much of the chewiness of actual meat. The vegan fish even carries a dark skin. No, you won’t be fooled into thinking you’re eating the real thing. But the experience is approximate in taste, texture, and appearance. Let’s just say Thai Vegan gives people who don’t eat meat a chance to enjoy the next best thing, even if there’s still a palpable difference between the real and the manufactured. While America is seeing a Thai food revival based on duck, sausage meats, intriguing sauces, and deep-fried fish and pork belly, Thai Vegan sticks with the familiar. Innovation is held to its use of mock meats. Otherwise, it’s like a traditional Thai restaurant that offers the choice of chicken or shrimp with your rice noodles. Dishes sport lots of veggies, a heavy touch of sweetness, and a light touch with spice (unless you request some heat). The steak’s peppery flavor fits beautifully with flat noodles stir-fried with garlic, mushrooms, lots of green pepper, tomato, and basil. The chew of the soy steak coupled with the crisp bell peppers was a textural thrill. The shrimp went almost unnoticed in the pad Thai, and the sauce barely suggested peanuts. A green curry with fake fish was thick with shards of firm onion that resembled noodles. The coconut-milk sauce was mildly

spicy and tasted more of basil than anything else. Slices of fish suggested kelp. Choosing chicken or shrimp instead might have been a better choice. A big bowl of coconut-milk tom kha kai soup was a heady mix of flavors and was swimming with cabbage, mushrooms, and scalloped rounds of carrot. Tough chunks of ginger imparted distinctive flavor but had to be removed; likewise the stringy bamboo shoots. The soup’s soy chicken was hardly chickenlike, either in texture or flavor. Some of the best dishes here are those without mock meat. An order of basil leaves with bell peppers, garlic, and mint hosted perfectly fried tofu that was neither tough nor rubbery. A grand tempura plate included pumpkin as well as broccoli and zucchini, fried perfectly but in an undistinguished tempura batter. Small spring rolls are a savory blend of cabbage, ground carrot, mung bean noodles, and shiitake mushrooms. They’re best eaten without a dip in the terribly sweet chili sauce. The lentil loaf is enjoyably savory. Salads that come with the lunch and dinner combinations aren’t the usual mix of baby greens but rather crisp torn leaves tossed with a vinegary dressing. The crafted pile of brown rice recalled the best rice of our aspiringvegan days, firm and nutty. The banana spring rolls we tried for dessert were just what we expected: bananas tucked inside spring roll wrappers and deep-fried, the banana warm and flavorful at the edges and cool or even cold at the center. You don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy Thai Vegan. And if you’re a devoted vegetarian craving meat, this may be as close as you’ll get. ◀
