Bill puts spotlight on art auctions Proposal would bring hammer down on unregulated practices

By Patrick Malone

The New Mexican

Art and politics are inescapable fixtures at the state Capitol, and now they’re on a collision course at the Roundhouse. A proposal introduced last week in the Legis-

lature would impose government oversight of art auction houses for the first time and change the way some of them do business. Reports of questionable auction practices involving expensive pieces that distort prices and set off a chain reaction that negatively affects artists, galleries and ultimately private purchasers of artwork inspired the proposed legislation, according to its sponsor, Sen. Tim Keller, D-Albuquerque. “Usually $10,000 and over — fine art — those are the concerns I’m hearing about,” Keller said.

The bill is likely to encounter opposition from auction houses that could find it onerous and contradictory to accepted practices in the art business, according to David Clemmer, curator at Zaplin Lampert Gallery in Santa Fe. He is former director of Santa Fe Art Auctions, which along with Manitou Auctions and Altermann Galleries and Auctioneers, constitute the art auction houses in Santa Fe.

n a five-way race in which policy stances differ subtly in some cases and not at all in others, the personalities and experiences of the candidates could be the deciding factor for voters in Santa Fe City Council District 2. Incumbent City Councilor Rebecca Wurzburger is not seeking re-election. Vying to replace her are contractor Joe Arellano, engineer and former Española mayor Joseph Maestas, architect Rad Acton, gallery owner Mary Bonney and environmental activist Jeff Green. Green and Bonney failed to qualify for public financing. Bonney and Acton bring Canyon Road perspectives to the race. Green and Maestas share an environmental bent, but clashed in an ethics complaint. Lifelong Santa Fe resident Arellano touts his native knowledge of the city. The victor will represent a diverse district on the city’s southeast side. Its northern borders

Within those boundaries are Canyon Road art galleries that draw tourists from around the globe, some of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, the New Mexico Capitol and pricey foothills homes. But in parts of the district, poverty and the contemporary problems that often accompany it, such as drug abuse, also are found. The district’s 15,312 registered voters will be able to choose from a field of candidates who talk about environmental concerns, Santa Fe’s public education woes, managing development with the city’s rich history in mind and coping with revenue challenges while trying to promote economic development. The winner will join Councilor Peter Ives in representing District 2 on the eight-member council. Ives is now in the middle of his first fouryear term on the council. Profiles begin on Page A-4

Working-age Americans are the new faces of food stamps By Hope Yen

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — In a first, working-age people now make up the majority in U.S. households that rely on food stamps — a switch from a few years ago, when children and the elderly were the main recipients. Some of the change is due to demographics, such as the trend toward having fewer children. But a slow economic recovery with

high unemployment, stagnant wages and an increasing gulf between low-wage and highskill jobs also plays a big role. It suggests that government spending on the $80 billion-ayear food stamp program — twice what it cost five years ago — may not subside significantly anytime soon.

Volunteers sneeze for the sake of science Doctors infect willing patients with flu virus to study effects, defenses By Lauran Neergaard The Associated Press


Max Anderson, Muskegon Postal Service employee for 21 years, delivers mail to residents Friday near downtown Muskegon, Mich.

In brief

Advisers say Obama could circumvent Congress WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will work with Congress where he can and circumvent lawmakers where he must, his top advisers warned Sunday in previewing Tuesday’s State of the Union speech. Obama faces a politically divided Congress on Tuesday and will use his annual address to demand expanded economic opportunity. Absent legislative action, the White House is telling lawmakers that the president is ready to take unilateral action to close the gap between rich and poor Americans. “I think the way we have to think about this year is we have a divided government,” said Dan Pfeiffer, a longtime Obama adviser. “The Republican Congress is not going to rubberstamp the president’s agenda. The president is not going to sign the Republican Congress’ agenda.” So the White House is eyeing compromise on some priorities, Obama advisers said. But the president is also looking at executive orders that can be enacted without Congress’ approval. “The president sees this as a year of action to work with Congress where he can and to bypass Congress where necessary,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said.

Syria talks yield narrow deal on besieged city GENEVA — Two days of face-to-face peace talks yielded a narrow and tentative agreement Sunday for women and children trapped in a besieged Syrian city, and the government said President Bashar Assad had no intention of giving up “the keys to Damascus.”

With little progress to show after months of international pressure for the conference in Geneva, the U.N. mediator hoping to broker an end to Syria’s civil war defended their pace. “I think being too slow is a better way than going too fast,” Lakhdar Brahimi said. “If you run, you may gain one hour and lose one week.” The limited agreement to let women and children leave a blockaded part of the old city of Homs, under negotiation for at least two days, fell far short of expectations and was called into question by multiple reports of government shelling. The talks have yet to touch upon the issue of a possible transitional government — their purpose according to terms laid out when they were first conceived. But the government was unequivocal that Assad’s future was assured in the country led by his family since 1970.

Health law gets tricky with Medicaid eligibility CONCORD, N.H. — Families shopping for health insurance through the new federal marketplace are running into trouble getting everyone covered when children are eligible for Medicaid but their parents are not. Children who qualify for Medicaid, the safety-net program for the poor and disabled, can’t be included on subsidized family plans purchased through the federal marketplace, a fact that is taking many parents by surprise and leaving some kids stuck without coverage. A California man says he was given false assurances that his kids could be covered by the same plan he picked for his wife and himself, and a Florida father says his daughter is going without coverage while he waits for answers. And in New Hampshire, some parents who’ve enrolled in private plans for themselves alone are finding out later that their children aren’t eligible for Medicaid after all, leaving their kids with no options.

Tunisia finally passes progressive constitution TUNIS, Tunisia — After decades of dictatorship and two years of arguments and compromises, Tunisians on Sunday finally have a new constitution laying the foundations for a new democracy. The document is groundbreaking as one of the most progressive constitutions in the Arab world — and for the fact that it got written at all. It passed late Sunday by 200 votes out of 216 in the Muslim Mediterranean country that inspired uprisings across the region after overthrowing a dictator in 2011. The constitution enshrining freedom of religion and women’s rights took two years to finish.

KIEV, Ukraine — Thousands of Ukrainians chanted “Hero!” and sang the national anthem on Sunday, as a coffin carrying a protester who was killed in last week’s clashes with police was carried through the streets of the capital, underscoring the rising tensions in the country’s two-month political crisis. Mikhail Zhiznevsky, 25, was one of three protesters who died in clashes Wednesday. “He could have been my fiancé, but he died defending my future so that I will live in a different Ukraine,” said Nina Uvarov, a 25-year-old student from Kiev who wept as Zhiznevsky’s body was carried out of St. Michael’s Cathedral. The opposition contends that Zhiznevsky and another activist were shot by police in an area where demonstrators had been throwing rocks and firebombs at riot police for several days. The government claims the two demonstrators were killed with hunting rifles, which they say police do not carry. The authorities would not say how the third protester died.

Killed protester mourned in Kiev amid political crisis

BETHESDA, Md. — Forget being sneezed on: Government scientists are deliberately giving dozens of volunteers the flu by squirting the live virus straight up their noses. It may sound bizarre, but the rare type of research is a step in the quest for better flu vaccines. It turns out that how the body fends off influenza remains something of a mystery. “Vaccines are working, but we could do better,” said Dr. Matthew Memoli of the National Institutes of Health, who is leading the study that aims to infect up to 100 adults over the next year. Wait a minute: Flu is sweeping the country, so why not just study the already sick? That wouldn’t let scientists measure how the immune system reacts through each step of infection, starting with that first exposure to the virus. It’s not an experiment to be taken lightly. After all, the flu kills thousands of Americans a year. For safety, Memoli chose a dose that produces mild to moderate symptoms — and accepts only volunteers who are healthy and no older than 50. And to avoid spreading the germs, participants must spend at least nine days quarantined inside a special isolation ward at the NIH hospital, their health closely monitored. They’re not released until nasal tests prove they’re no longer contagious. The incentive: About $3,000 to compensate for their time. “I received a very scolding email from my mother” about signing up, Daniel Bennett, 26, said with a grin. “Their standards are so high, I don’t believe I’m in danger,” added Bennett, a restaurant worker from College Park, Md. “I don’t get sick that often.” A masked and gloved Memoli had Bennett lie flat for about a minute. “It will taste salty. Some will drip down the back of your throat,” Memoli said, before squeezing a syringe filled with millions of microscopic virus particles, floating in salt water, into each nostril. Sure enough, a few days later, Bennett had the runny nose and achiness of mild flu. The best defense against influenza is a yearly vaccine, but it’s far from perfect. In fact, the vaccine is least effective in people age 65 and older — the group most susceptible to flu — probably because the immune system weakens with age. Understanding how younger adults’ bodies fight flu may help scientists determine what the more vulnerable elderly are missing, clues to help develop more protective vaccines for everyone, Memoli explained. Here’s the issue: The vaccine is designed to raise people’s levels of a particular flu-fighting antibody. It targets a protein that acts like the virus’ coat, called hemagglutinin — the “H” in H1N1, the strain that caused the 2009 pandemic and that is causing the most illness so far this winter, too. But it’s not clear what antibody level is best to aim for — or whether a certain amount means you’re protected against getting sick at all, or that you’d get a mild case instead of a severe one.

A story on Page A-1 in the Jan. 26, 2014, edition of The Santa Fe New Mexican about a study of the impact of the Trinity explosion incorrectly identified Jennifer Loukassis as communications manager for the National Cancer Institute. She is actually the co-investigator for Trinity on community outreach. An online caption for the story incorrectly stated that the Trinity site is open to visitors twice a year, but in fact it is only open to visitors once a year — the first Saturday in April. In addition, the story reported that NCI scientists will use the study to “attempt to reconstruct the internal doses of radiation received by residents living near the Southern New Mexico blast site.” What the scientists said is that the study will attempt to reconstruct those doses of radiation received by residents using information on their diets and other lifestyle factors to then determine possible connections to radioactive fallout from the blast over the past seven years. The New Mexican will correct factual errors in its news stories. Errors should be brought to the attention of the city editor at 986-3035.

Brain-dead Texas Gunman had no criminal record woman taken off life support MARYLAND MALL SHOOTING

his motive, but it remained elusive. Aguilar, who had concealed the shotgun in a bag, fired six to nine times. One victim, Brianna Benlolo, a 21-year-old single mother, lived half a mile away from Aguilar in the same College Park neighborhood, but police said they were still trying to determine what, if any, relationship they had. Although they lived close to Maryland’s largest university, neither was a student there. Aguilar was accepted last February to Montgomery College, a community college in the Washington suburbs, but school spokesman Marcus Rosano said he never registered or attended. The other employee, Tyler Johnson, did not know Aguilar and did not socialize with Benlolo outside of work, a relative said. Tydryn Scott, 19, said she was Aguilar’s lab partner in science class at James Hubert Black High School and said he hung out with other skaters. She said she was stung by the news. “It was really hurtful, like, wow — someone that I know, someone that I’ve been in the presence of more than short amounts of time. I’ve seen this guy in action before. Never upset, never sad, just quiet, just chill,” Scott said. “If any other emotion, he was happy,

COLUMBIA, Md. — The gunman who killed two people at a Maryland mall was a teenage skateboarding enthusiast who had no criminal record before he showed up at the shopping center armed with a shotgun, plenty of ammunition and a backpack filled with crude homemade explosives, authorities said Sunday. Darion Marcus Aguilar, 19, took a taxi to the Mall in Columbia in suburban Baltimore on Saturday morning and entered the building near Zumiez, a shop that sells skateboarding gear. He went downstairs to a food court directly below the store, then returned less than an hour later, dumped the backpack in a dressing room and started shooting, police said. Shoppers fled in a panic or barricaded themselves behind closed doors. When police arrived, they found three people dead — two store employees and Aguilar, who had killed himself, authorities said. The shooting baffled investigators and acquaintances of Aguilar, a quiet, skinny teenager who graduated from high school less than a year ago and had no previous run-ins with law enforcement. Police spent Sunday trying to piece together

laughing.” Aguilar graduated in 2013, school officials confirmed. The Prince George’s Darion Marcus County Police Department Aguilar said it received a missing persons report for Aguilar at about 1:40 p.m. Saturday, more than two hours after the mall shooting. Officers went to Aguilar’s home to speak with his mother about 5 p.m. and saw Aguilar’s journal. The portion the officer read made him concerned for Aguilar’s safety, the department said. Police began tracking Aguilar’s phone and soon discovered it was at the mall. Howard County Police Chief William McMahon said the journal expressed general

unhappiness, but he did not give any specifics about the writings. “There are a lot of unanswered questions,” McMahon said. The police chief said there has been speculation about a romantic relationship between the gunman and Benlolo, but investigators have not been able to establish that. Aguilar purchased the 12-gauge shotgun legally last month at a store in neighboring Montgomery County. At his home, officers also recovered more ammunition, computers and documents, police said. The home is in a middleincome neighborhood called Hollywood, near the Capital Beltway. No one answered the door Sunday morning. There was a Christmas wreath on the front door and signs that read “Beware of Dog.”

Passion for neighborhoods, preservation spur Acton By Steve Terrell The New Mexican


ad Acton is one of those people who visited Santa Fe and decided he couldn’t leave. As he tells it, it was in 1983. He had just earned his degree in architecture and had lined up a job in Denver. The summer before he was supposed to move to Colorado, Acton went to visit a friend in Albuquerque who took him on a tour of the entire state. Santa Fe was the last stop. He never made it to Denver. “This was a city that respected architecture, a city that respected culture,” he said. “I knew I had to live here.” As fate would have it, he quickly found a job with a local architectural firm and settled in. By 1990, he established his own company, Acton Architecture and Planning, located on Canyon Road. The company specializes in residential and small-scale commercial projects. In recent years, Acton has been involved with various civic organizations and neighborhood groups, including The Old Santa Fe Association, where he was an officer, and The Canyon Road Association, where he served as president. He was on a committee that advised the state about the parking garage built across Don Gaspar Avenue from the Roundhouse. He currently serves as co-chairman of the Atalaya School Ad Hoc Task Force. Mayor David Coss appointed Acton to the city’s Historic Design Review Board, where he served between 2010 and 2012.

Sharon Wood, who chairs that board, described Acton as “very dedicated in his service as a member of the board.” She declined to say, however, whether she was supporting him for City Council. Another member of that board, Christine Mather, also praised Acton’s service. “He’s a dedicated preservationist,” she said. “We didn’t always see eye to eye on projects. There were times I thought he got a little too involved. He’s an architect and sometimes he had design ideas of his own. I don’t think applicants always appreciate that. But his ideas were good and he’s very talented.” Mather said she would vote for Acton. Acton said he decided to run for City Council “because it just seemed to be a natural extension of all the public service I’ve been doing.” His experience in neighborhood groups colors many of the proposals he is advocating in his council campaign. One of his ideas is to create a Department of Historic and Neighborhood Preservation, which would be headed by a neighborhood coordinator. This person would work with existing neighborhood groups, revitalizing ones that have become inactive and helping other neighborhoods start new organizations. The neighborhood coordinator would help identify homes that would be available for renting to local police officers at subsidized rates. This, he said, would help keep new police officers in the city instead of seeing them leave to places like Rio Rancho in search of more affordable housing. Acton said the neighborhood coor-

dinator also could help neighborhood groups “amplify Neighborhood Watch programs” by way of an online social networking program called Nextdoor. com. Acton said this can be used as a virtual Neighborhood Watch program where neighbors can alert one another about burglary or suspicious activity in a neighborhood. Acton supports the city’s plan to purchase the vacant St. Catherine Indian School campus on the city’s north side. The city wants to preserve its historic buildings, some dating to the late 1800s. But the property is tied up in litigation. The city has sued

the owner, Max Tafoya, accusing him of letting the property deteriorate. Pueblo Bank and Trust Co. also has sued for foreclosure on the property, saying Tafoya and his wife fell behind on payments on a $4 million mortgage. The St. Catherine campus should be used as a residential arts center, where artists could live, have studios as well as rehearsal and performance spaces for performing arts, Acton said. He also said he also envisions the| St. Michael’s Drive and Airport Road areas as possible arts centers, where artists could work and live. Acton said he’s not overly worried about the loss in revenue from “hold-harmless” reimbursements that state government has paid to cities. These reimbursements were established in 2004 to make up for the loss of gross-receipts revenues to local governments from taxes on food and medicine, which the state abolished. Last year, to pay for a corporate tax cut, the state decided to phase out the “hold-harmless” payments to cities and counties over 15 years. Acton said growth in Santa Fe’s economy should more than make up for the loss of the reimbursements. “Last year, [city] revenues increased between 6 and 9 percent,” he said. “If this trend continues, we’ll be in pretty good shape.” One idea Acton proposes is what he calls a “be kind to tourists” program. This would involve providing retail business parking vouchers for all city parking structures and expanding the Santa Fe Pickup shuttle system at the rail yard to include downtown hotels. He said he initially was opposed to

the idea of changing the city government into a “strong-mayor” system. Voters will decide in March whether to make the mayor a full-time position with power to fire the city manager, city attorney and city clerk. But, Acton said he changed his mind after the City Council amended the proposal to allow the eight-member council to fire a city manager with a “super-majority” of six votes. In his campaign for council, Acton has picked up a major endorsement — or at least half of one. The American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees, which represents most city workers, endorsed Acton as well as one of his opponents, Mary Louise Bonney. AFSCME Local 3999’s PEOPLE Committee voted in December on the endorsements, based on answers given by candidates on a questionnaire. District 2 was the only council race in which the union gave a dual endorsement. Acton is one of three out of the five District 2 candidates who qualified for public campaign financing. He said the process of going doorto-door to collect $5 donations to qualify for public funds was a very enjoyable experience. “People really want to talk about their views,” he said. “Some even ask you in for dinner.” And, he told people who came to a Jan. 14 candidate forum, “I met more dog species than I have in my entire life.” Contact Steve Terrell at sterrell@ Read his political blog at


Love for Santa Fe courses through Arellano’s veins By Patrick Malone The New Mexican


o Joe Arellano, Santa Fe is more than a star on a map or the city around him. It’s an amorphous spirit that pulses deep inside him. It’s home. Arellano is running for City Council on a simple theme: Santa Fe is where he has lived all his life. He can talk policy, issues and solutions, but every conversation veers back to what he appreciates about the City Different — its undisturbed night skies, its world-class art scene, the unmistakable aroma of piñon that tells Arellano he’s home whenever he returns from a trip. “I am a native Santa Fean — let me make that clear,” Arellano said. “When I say a native Santa Fean, it means I was born here, raised here, and I’ve lived and worked here all my life. That’s what a native Santa Fean is. A native Santa Fean is not someone who was born somewhere else and transferred here or was born here and raised in another city then came back here. I just want to make sure that is one of the issues.” His large family living in Santa Fe gives Arellano a stake in the city’s fortunes that he says is unmatched by his opponents. “A lot of people say they have a stake in Santa Fe because they have family,” he said. “I have 31 nephews and nieces, and I have 26 great-nephews and -nieces — six brothers, five sisters.” Arellano said none of his relatives work for the city or contracts with it, so he does not anticipate any conflicts of interest if he’s elected. The pool of influences that compelled Arellano to seek office doesn’t stop at his family tree. For 24 years, he has owned J-N-S Services in Santa

Fe. It began as a grounds-maintenance operation, then graduated to small landscaping jobs and larger ones. “We landed up purchasing a pickup truck, and then another pickup truck and moved on like that until this point,” Arellano said. After accumulating licenses in painting, masonry and fencing, Arellano attained a general contractor’s license. His business has grown and now employs six people. Arellano said his work takes him to all corners of Santa Fe to meet people and hear their concerns. Arellano has been investing since he was 18 years old. He is a landlord and owns five homes in Santa Fe. He owned six homes before one was lost to foreclosure at the peak of the economic downturn. The candidate says he is proud to declare that he’s not a politician. He brings a diploma from Santa Fe High School and his life experiences to the race. He insists he’s at no disadvantage, even against a seasoned politico such as opponent Joseph Maestas, who earned a master’s degree in engineering and whose political credentials include serving as mayor of Española. “Mr. Maestas has that big political list of things he’s accomplished, and it’s impressive for a political person, I guess,” Arellano said. “But I think you need to get somebody in there that has a different agenda, a different idea, instead of wanting to be mayor next or congressman next or lieutenant governor next.” Arellano said he’s lived a life of few regrets, save for his one foreclosure and his first marriage ending in divorce. Today, he says he is more content than ever. He is engaged to Eilani Gerstner, his campaign treasurer. They have a 2-year-old daughter, Emma. Campaign-finance records show

Gerstner provided a $5 qualifying donation to Arellano’s opponent Jeff Green, and that Green reciprocated with a $5 contribution to Arellano’s campaign. Arellano said the swap does not constite as an alliance. He characterized it as a mutual gesture to help both candidates inch toward the goal of qualifying for public financing, a goal Arellano attained and Green did not. Arellano’s willingness to play on an even footing doesn’t surprise his longtime competitive weightlifting coach and former Santa Fe City Councilor Carl Miller. He recalls a time when Arellano committed a foul during a competition because his knee touched the platform. None of the judges noticed it, so Arellano alerted them of his foul.

“He’s ready to serve on City Council,” Miller said. “He’s straightforward and tough. The way he speaks to people is very refreshing. Instead of a bunch of ideology, he wants practical solutions to the problems that face Santa Fe. He’s very articulate, and what you see is what you get.” Between his vast network of family and friends and the Santa Feans he meets doing business, Arellano said he’s got two ears full of suggestions to improve the city. They start with the public school system’s 62 percent graduation rate, according to Arellano. “That’s failure,” he said. “That is failure for Santa Fe in the future.” While it’s the elected school board that oversees the public schools, the city should take a more active role in public education, in Arellano’s opinion — in particular, guiding high school dropouts to programs that teach them marketable skills. “[Santa Fe Public Schools Superintendent] Joel Boyd has been willing to open the door to have conversations with the city of Santa Fe because of their concerns,” Arellano said. “If I get elected as a City Council member, I would really make an effort to keep that door open and push that door open wider.” State law prohibits cities from investing in any traditional school programs, but Boyd said city resources for out-of-school time, such as beforeschool, after-school and summer programs, would be welcome. “There is considerable opportunity for partnerships,” Boyd said. Connecting the hundreds of nonprofit organizations in Santa Fe with the people who need their services most is another area where Arellano says the city could do more to reduce homelessness, drug addiction and crime — all of which he sees as barri-

ers to economic development. City Council can increase revenue by supporting existing small businesses in Santa Fe by streamlining their paths to bidding on government contracts, continued business incubator efforts and keeping pollution low to preserve the city’s appeal to tourists, Arellano said. District 2 is home to treasures and turmoil, and Arellano says he’s attuned to both. For commuters from Eldorado, roads in District 2 are the gateway to Santa Fe, so traffic and road maintenance are priorities or Arellano. He wants traffic studied in the district. The art galleries on Canyon Road bring tourists from around the globe, with pockets of affluence in the bordering residential neighborhoods. The state Capitol draws people from throughout the state, and Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center serves patients from all over Santa Fe and beyond. “District 2 is not only a wealthy area,” Arellano said, acknowledging the drug problems and poverty of the Hopewell and El Calle Lorca portions of the district. If he’s elected and faced with tossup decisions, Arellano says he’ll turn first to God, then to Santa Feans to guide him. To address the challenges facing Santa Fe requires unity, something Arellano says the current council lacks. “I would like to see the City Council united so that we can get things done,” he said. “Right now, people see it as a fractured City Council.” Contact Patrick Malone at 968-3017 or


Community activist Green seeks sustainable future By Staci Matlock

The New Mexican


effrey Ethan Green petitioned a court to have his birth surname changed last year from Genauer to Au Green. The change had something to do with the 34-year-old’s chosen vocation as an environmental activist and local food advocate. Certainly, it is an easier name for voters to latch onto in the upcoming city election. But he said the change has more to do with distancing himself from his family’s history as Jews who survived Nazi Germany’s Holocaust. “My grandfather escaped from a Nazi work

camp, survived through terrible conditions as a refugee living in the forest and finally emigrated to America,” Green said in his name-change petition to the First Judicial District Court. “I seek to free my own identity from symbolic ties to the German nation and heal from the historic trauma.” Green uses Au Green, which contains all the letters of his original name, on Facebook. But he is just going by Green in his first-time bid for a seat on the Santa Fe City Council and on his campaign finance report. He was Genauer both times he was arrested while participating in nonviolent public protests — once in Tucson, Ariz.,

and once in Santa Cruz, Calif. Green’s only prior experience with elected office was as Student Senate president at Northern New Mexico College, where he earned his K-12 teaching certificate. In that position, he said, he managed a $25,000 annual budget and led a successful campaign to increase student representation on the college Board of Regents. Born in Philadelphia, Green earned an undergraduate degree in history, political science and Middle East Studies at Rutgers University in New Jersey. His was not a straight path through college. He spent his junior year studying at Tel Aviv University

and at the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies. He said that experience launched his life as an activist. “I realized our way of life is not sustainable,” he said. He spent part of another year walking 800 miles with other anti-nuclear activists from New Mexico to Nevada. While his electoral politics résumé is scant, his experience in community and event organizing is broad. He worked as a field organizer for a biotechnology project in Philadelphia, interned as a farmer in Albuquerque at La Placita Gardens, helped map irrigation systems in Santa Cruz, Calif.,

Green: Candidate says his youth will be an asset Continued from Page A-4 and worked as a kitchen intern at Sostenga, a center for sustainable food, agriculture and environment in Española. He founded a “School Gardens Across America” campaign in Washington, D.C., and New Mexico in 2010-11. Green created the Occupy New Mexico blog in January 2012 to curate multimedia coverage and report on all local Occupy events. In 2013, he won a Sustainable Santa Fe award from the city for sustainability journalism. He makes his living as Southwest regional coordinator for the Real Food Challenge, working to bring healthy, fair trade and locally grown food to college campuses. The organization’s website is Green’s campaign platform is built around three broad issues: economic justice for everyone, energy independence for Santa Fe and a “shareable city different.” In answer to some questions from the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union, Green said he is “100 percent opposed to privatization” of public services. He said he’s concerned that Santa Fe has so few buildings powered by solar energy. But he isn’t sure the right answer is for Santa Fe to take over the local power system, as the city did with the water utility. “It does not seem to be the easiest and quickest means to achieve what should really be our central objective — increasing Santa Fe’s local and regional use of clean energy while displacing the use of fossil fuels,” Green wrote in reply to a question posed to candidates by the Sierra Club. “What we really need now is to end the corporate monopoly on power distribution and allow real competition from decentralized clean energy startups.” Green attended a Democracy School put on by the Pennsylvaniabased Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund. The group advocates for community rights ordinances and helped Mora County pass one that includes a ban on hydraulic fracturing by oil and gas companies. The community rights ordinance model is controversial among Northern New Mexico community activists, but Green thinks the city should pass a similar community rights ordinance to open the market for cleanenergy companies. Green advocates a higher municipal tax on large corporations and establishing a “green jobs commission” to boost the economy. He also calls for the city to establish a scholarship program to help Santa Fe Public Schools graduates attend local colleges. He thinks his youth can be an asset on the council since so many challenges facing the city — jobs, education, homelessness and affordable housing — affect young people. Green has not shied away from taking on his more politically experienced competitors in the City Council race. He filed an ethics complaint against Joseph Maestas over failure to report $600 in expenditures on a campaign finance form. Maestas said the omission was caused by a delay in receiving receipts for money spent on robocalls and placards. The city’s Ethics and Campaign Review Board found that Maestas had committed the violations and fined him $1,000. Despite Green’s environmental background, the local group of the Sierra Club endorsed Maestas for the District 2 seat. The Northern New Mexico Group of the Rio Grande Chapter of the Sierra Club selected Maestas based on a vote of both the seven-member political committee and the ninemember executive committee. Endorsements are made based on the answers to a questionnaire and other factors, according to the Sierra Club. Green’s responses to the questions are on his website jeffegreen.nation Green raised $165 in $5 donations and $985 in seed money. District 2 candidates Rad Acton and Mary Louise Bonney each contributed $5 to his campaign. Contact Staci Matlock at 986-3055 or Follow her on Twitter @stacimatlock.

Maestas champions environmental vision By Patrick Malone

The New Mexican


or some, political ambition can carry a dark connotation and breed suspicion. But Joseph Maestas, a candidate for the District 2 Santa Fe City Council seat on the March 4 ballot, embraces the aspiration to hold public office and says it comes from the purest link in his DNA helix. “In terms of political service and public service, my family has deep roots going all the way back to creation of our state’s constitution,” Maestas said. His maternal great-grandfather, Jose Amado Lucero, was a member of the New Mexico House of Representatives during territorial days and served as a constitutional delegate during New Mexico’s formation as a state. Maestas’ grandfather, Alfredo Lucero, was a Santa Fe County commissioner and county clerk. “To others, it may not mean much, but to me, knowing that my greatgrandfather and my grandfather had a big hand in political and public service to this extent is significant,” Maestas said. “It’s something I carry with me.” He carried that heritage with him to the Española mayor’s office for four years and six years on the City Council there before that. “I have a leadership skill set that is proven,” Maestas said. He has unsuccessfully run for a seat on the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission and in the past has been mentioned as a potential congressional candidate. Now, Maestas lives in Santa Fe with his wife, U.S. District Judge Martha Vazquez, and he has his eye on the City Council as the next outlet for his compulsion to hold office. If elected, Maestas said, he expects he would abstain from votes on liquor license issues because of a potential conflict of interest. His family holds an inactive liquor license associated with his deceased father’s estate. He believes protocols observed by the federal court system would avoid any conflicts of interest involving his wife. Maestas describes himself as a “trained problem-solver” based on his profession as a civil engineer. “Engineers are trained to look at the facts with total objectivity, weed out all the noise, all the hearsay, and really look at the issues, the facts and how we can solve a problem,” Maestas said.

His work with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation has helped implement federal laws governing air quality, endangered species and other environmental policies. “I bring, I think, some significant environmental chops to the table,” Maestas said. From a field of candidates whose chorus of support for environmental sustainability sounds like echoes ricocheting through an arroyo, Maestas emerged with the endorsement of the Northern New Mexico Group of the Rio Grande Chapter of the Sierra Club. Only candidate Mary Bonney failed to return a candidate questionnaire seeking that endorsement in District 2, according to Susan Martin, political chairwoman for the Northern New Mexico Group. A seven-member panel interviewed Maestas and Rad Acton as finalists for the endorsement and chose Maestas by a two-thirds margin. A nine-member review panel affirmed the endorsement, also by a two-thirds margin. The Northern New Mexico Group of the Rio Grande Chapter of the Sierra Club would not divulge how panelists for the endorsement voted, and refused to release candidate questionnaires. Maestas’ opponent, Jeff Green, has run on a platform prioritizing environmentalism. Green filed an ethics

complaint against Maestas accusing him of failing to disclose $600 in campaign spending and exceeding the $1,500 limit on seed-money expenditures. The city’s Ethics and Campaign Review Board found that Maestas had committed the violations and fined him $1,000. Maestas said he did not intentionally commit the violations and accepted responsibility. He contends the campaign-finance flap is less relevant than his record to voters seeking a champion for the environment. “You can talk about your positions on the environment all you want,” Maestas said, referring to the Sierra Club endorsement, “but I think the most credible reputation you can have on the environment is to talk about your accomplishments. I think ultimately that is what the voters are going to consider the most.” Martin said Maestas’ record as a city councilor and as mayor of Española was a key factor in Sierra Club endorsement. “There are those on the political committee who followed [Maestas’] tenure there,” she said. “For many years, it was the case that Española City Council was influenced by a patròn, and Joseph was one of the more progressive people to serve on the council.” Maestas’ decade in elected office in Española didn’t endear him to everyone. As mayor, he led a wave of cuts that swept out several department heads, and his acrimonious relationship with the Rio Grande Sun weekly newspaper festered so nastily that the city bought radio air time to issue its own informational dispatches. But none of that dissuaded the area’s Sierra Club group from endorsing Maestas. Martin said its political committee was more concerned with the environmental work Maestas and the progressive slate he brought to the council in Española. The list includes a smoking ban, a switch to more environmentally efficient LED street lights and obtaining funding to abate arsenic in the water supply. “He’s still working for the federal government [in Albuquerque] and commutes via Rail Runner and his bicycle,” Martin said. “So he’s acting green in addition to having that philosophy.” Maestas’ environmental vision for Santa Fe includes taking care of the

Santa Fe River and acquisition of additional water rights to meet the city’s anticipated needs 40 years from now. “We know climate change is here,” Maestas said, and that could impact Santa Fe’s future water supply because of the city’s reliance on surface-water sources. Maestas also favors exploring the possibility of a solar garden to increase local reliance on renewable energy, an economic sector that along with knowledge-based and informationbased jobs he sees as keys to helping bring wages in Santa Fe in line with the cost of living. Establishing high-speed broadband in the St. Michael’s Drive corridor with the installation of fiber-optic cable would beckon such businesses such, he said. Maestas also has his eyes trained on Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center. He sees it as an economic engine for Santa Fe plagued by “distrust between nurses and hospital administrators,” while much of Northern New Mexico relies on the hospital for care. He supports a thorough study of St. Vincent’s operation and a public discussion about it, including nurse-topatient staffing ratios. Maestas likes the idea of the city having an annual funding minimum for services to benefit youth, such as job training and resources for homeless children. Former Santa Fe Public Schools Superintendent Veronica Garcia said she got to know Maestas when they worked on the nonprofit board of New Mexico Voices for Children. “He’s not impulsive,” she said. “He’s a deep thinker, and he’s very methodical in his approach, very measured.” Maestas says it’s those qualities that he hopes voters will prioritize as they decide who to vote for in the District 2 race. “I think they know where you were born and where you were raised is just one of the many considerations that go into their decision of who they’re going to vote for,” he said, referring to opponent Joe Arellano’s campaign emphasis. Maestas’ profession has plucked him from his rural Santa Fe County roots and led him to live around the country. “I’m back here in New Mexico,” he said, “and I’m a better person for it.” Contact Patrick Malone at 968-3017 or


Bonney set to tackle water, tourism issues By Staci Matlock

The New Mexican


s Hurricane Katrina roared toward New Orleans in 2005 and government officials urged residents to evacuate, Mary Bonney listened. She and her thenhusband packed up their 2-year-old daughter and fled the city, leaving behind a house and gallery. While seeking refuge in Texas after the hurricane, Bonney received a call from a friend offering her commercial space in Santa Fe to relaunch her gallery. She packed up again and moved to the City Different to start over. “I couldn’t go back to New Orleans,” she said. “It was too heartbreaking.” Bonney, 44, said her adopted town has been good to her. She has a home, a business — The William & Joseph Gallery on Canyon Road — and her 10-year-old daughter, who Bonney said is enjoying public school. She said she wants to give back to the city as a public servant, seeking to represent District 2 on the City Council. Current District 2 City Councilor Rebecca Wurzburger suggested Bonney run for her seat. “I had watched her in action [with commissions], and I thought she cared about some of the same issues that I do,” said Wurzburger. Born in Belgium, the child of a member of the U.S. Air Force, Bonney has never held elected office before. She has spent the past couple of decades representing artists, managing galleries and raising her daughter. She is past president of ArtSmart and a founding member of the Canyon Road Merchants Association in Santa Fe. Mayor David Coss appointed her to the Occupancy Tax Advisory Board, which advises the city on how to spend revenue from the lodgers tax on hotel room fees. Bonney said she’s been on her own since she was 13 years old. Her maternal grandmother took care of her, but she learned early to be selfsufficient and independent. “Those traits come in handy later,” she said. “I’m also more adventure-

some, a trait you need when you’re running your own business. You don’t have a safety net.” Her twin brother, Joseph, and another brother live in Virginia. Bonney said she has a special connection to her twin. They shared a tight bond through tough times when they were growing up. “We text and call each other a lot,” Bonney said. Bonney said she wants to see the city continue promoting tourism, which has the most potential for growth and new jobs. She observed that the city doesn’t have enough water resources to bring in major manufacturing or large businesses. She thinks solar energy installation, water conservation and high-tech consulting businesses also could be promising for jobs. Bonney thinks the city needs to better meet some basic needs. “We could improve the walkability of Santa Fe with better streetlights and better sidewalks,” she said.

She would also promote rebates for residents and businesses to install water-catchment cisterns. She advocates raising basic fees, not taxes, to pay for some of the improvements, but not raising taxes. Fees on business licenses, for example, could be tripled from the current $35 for an annual license and still be reasonable, she said. Bonney said she was recently made aware of the tension between some longtime Hispanic residents of the community and people who are undocumented immigrants. She was yelled at by a constituent for her support of immigrants. “I support people who want to come here and work hard,” she said. “My grandfather immigrated from Germany. Everyone deserves a chance.” She doesn’t believe undocumented immigrants steal jobs from Americans. “They are working hard and taking jobs Americans don’t want,” Bonney said. “Instead of these people getting taken advantage of, they need to be treated well and paid fairly.” Water is her overriding environmental concern, she said. “A city study says we need to cut water use by something like 30 percent by 2045,” she said. She thinks rooftop water-catchment systems, especially on large commercial buildings, is one way to address the shortfall. Bonney also thinks the city needs to continue promoting water conservation. The candidate supports the idea of the city establishing its own electric utility. “It would be expensive initially, but I think it would save money in the long run,” Bonney said. “If we were in control of it, we could dictate the alternative energy better. There is no reason that Santa Fe isn’t mostly solar. It is the one thing we have, sunshine, almost all the time.” The labor union representing city employees — American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 3999 — endorsed Bonney and Rad Acton in District 2. Miles Conway, communications director for the state AFSCME Coun-

cil 18, said the local union elects a committee that vets candidates and recommends endorsements to the statewide council. He said it isn’t unsual for a local union to endorse more than one candidate for a position. “It is their way of saying they know who supports labor,” he said. Bonney has no arrest record in Santa Fe or New Orleans and no bankruptcies. She is fighting a lawsuit filed by three artists who used to show their work at her gallery. The three artists — Richard Potter of Santa Fe, Stephanie Shank of Tucson, Ariz., and Carolyn Cole of Portland, Ore. — sued Bonney in June in District Court claiming she needed to return 14 pieces of their artwork or pay them. “It is too bad,” Bonney said. “Their contracts ended and the work was returned to them.” Potter also had a separate lawsuit against Bonney over the same artwork. In that case, state District Judge Stephen Pacheco in September ordered Bonney to pay Potter $21,100 or return four paintings to the artist. Pacheco then set aside the judgment in November after Potter failed to respond to a motion in the case. Bonney raised $865 from donors who gave $5 each, including Wurzburger and her City Council District 2 competitors Rad Acton and Jeff Green. She raised $1,450 in seed money from contributors who gave up to $100 each. Bonney said despite her lack of political experience, she’s ready to jump into the fray of a city council race. “For me, it is not about politics. It is about public service. I am not a politician. But I am someone who likes to dig in and make a difference,” she said. “Hurricane Katrina taught me that if you want to do something, just do it. Because you don’t know what might happen,” Bonney said. “I loved the community I was in [New Orleans] and I lost it. In Santa Fe, I found a special place. I’d like it to be the best it can be.” Contact Staci Matlock at 986-3055 or

Food: Economists link stagnant wages to reliance on food stamps Continued from Page A-1 college training, a sign that the safety net has stretched further to cover America’s former middle class, according to an analysis of government data for The Associated Press by economists at the University of Kentucky. Formally called Supplemental Nutrition Assistance, or SNAP, the program now covers 1 in 7 Americans. The findings coincide with the latest economic data showing workers’ wages and salaries growing at the lowest rate relative to corporate profits in U.S. history. President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday night is expected to focus in part on reducing income inequality, such as by raising the federal minimum wage. Congress, meanwhile, is debating cuts to food stamps, with Republicans including House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., wanting a $4 billion-a-year

reduction to an anti-poverty program that they say promotes dependency and abuse. Economists say having a job might no longer be enough for self-sufficiency in today’s economy. “A low-wage job supplemented with food stamps is becoming more common for the working poor,” said Timothy Smeeding, an economics professor at the University of WisconsinMadison who specializes in income inequality. “Many of the U.S. jobs now being created are low- or minimumwage — part-time or in areas such as retail or fast food — which means food stamp use will stay high for some time, even after unemployment improves.” The newer food stamp recipients include Maggie Barcellano, 25, of Austin, Texas. A high school graduate, she enrolled in college but didn’t complete her nursing degree after she could no longer afford the tuition. Hoping to boost her credentials, she

went through emergency medical technician training with the Army National Guard last year but was unable to find work as a paramedic because of the additional certification and fees required. Barcellano, now the mother of a 3-year-old daughter, finally took a job as a home health aide, working six days a week at $10 an hour. Struggling with the low income, she recently applied for food stamps with the help of the nonprofit Any Baby Can, to help save up for paramedic training. “It’s devastating,” Barcellano said. “When I left for the Army I was so motivated, thinking I was creating a situation where I could give my daughter what I know she deserves. But when I came back and basically found myself in the same situation, it was like it was all for naught.” Since 2009, more than 50 percent of U.S. households receiving food stamps have been adults ages 18 to 59, according to the Census Bureau’s Current

Population Survey. The food stamp program defines non-elderly adults as anyone younger than 60. As recently as 1998, the working-age share of food stamp households was at a low of 44 percent, before the dot-com bust and subsequent recessions in 2001 and 2007 pushed new enrollees into the program, according to James Ziliak, director of the Center for Poverty Research at the University of Kentucky. By education, about 28 percent of food stamp households are headed by a person with at least some college training, up from 8 percent in 1980. Among those with four-year college degrees, the share rose from 3 percent to 7 percent. High-school graduates head the bulk of food stamp households at 37 percent, up from 28 percent. In contrast, food stamp households headed by a high school dropout have dropped by more than half, to 28 percent. The shifts in food stamp participation come amid broader changes to the

economy such as automation, globalization and outsourcing, which have polarized the job market. Many goodpaying jobs in areas such as manufacturing have disappeared, shrinking the American middle class and bumping people with higher levels of education into lower-wage work. An analysis Ziliak conducted for the AP finds that stagnant wages and income inequality play an increasing role in the growth of food stamp rolls. Taking into account changing family structure, higher unemployment and policy expansions to the food stamp program, the analysis shows that stagnant wages and income inequality explained just 3.5 percent of the change in food stamp enrollment from 1980 to 2011. But from 2000 to 2011, wages and inequality accounted for 13 percent of the increase. Several economists say food stamp rolls are likely to remain elevated for some time.

Art: Bill would change way many auction houses conduct business Continued from Page A-1 Auction house representatives did not return messages seeking comments. Senate Bill 78 would require auction houses to disclose the reserve (or minimum acceptable price) for a piece of artwork up for auction, make public any financial interest that the auction house has in a particular piece of artwork and allow potential buyers to inspect items before bidding on them. Clemmer expects auction houses will balk at the prospects of divulging reserve prices and disclosing any financial interests in artwork they are selling because neither is a standard practice. “That’s something I’ve not seen,” he said. “Locally, auction houses are likely to object. There’s a certain amount of theatricality involved in auctions, no doubt about it. But that’s part of why people go to auctions.” Keller said the disclosure elements of his bill get to the heart of the specific complaints that have come to his attention. “Two pieces of art were being sold, similar, up for auction with different reserve prices that were not disclosed, therefore, the buyers were under misconceptions about the reserve prices,” he said. “Pieces of art in auctions, as well, where some were owned by the auction house and some were not and that not being disclosed — basically the process is biased toward the art

that’s owned by the auction house and that’s not being disclosed.” Keller’s bill also would give the Attorney General’s Office authority to regulate art auctions and act on consumer complaints. Currently, no statutory oversight of art auctions exists in New Mexico. “This is essentially an unregulated area in our economy that is very high-dollar in places like New York and Santa Fe,” he said. “Because there’s no statute there’s no basis for a complaint. Unless these transactions constitute egregious fraud that would be covered under federal contract law, there’s nowhere for people to complain to.” Keller would not identify the sources of the complaints that inspired him to introduce the legislation, except to say that they were gallery owners and art investors. “The fact that they feel they

need to stay anonymous to me is another reason that we need the regulation,” he said. “Things are clearly bad enough and tense enough that they’re not even comfortable going public with it. Some of them are worried about retribution for the works that they need auction-house services to sell.” Artists and galleries rely on auction houses to get their consigned artwork in front of potential buyers — including galleries, which rely on the wholesale savings realized at auction to make their profit margin on sales to collectors. “The prices that are set on the retail side of things in the galleries are determined by what happens in the wholesale market,” Keller said. “So this actually does affect every tourist and every art owner and dealer in Santa Fe and in the state, even though it’s sort

of upstream from what they would do on a daily basis.” Keller also refused to identify the auction houses accused of questionable practices. “The complaints I got were about multiple auctions that took place in Santa Fe,” he said. “It’s not even necessarily an auction-house-by-auctionhouse issue; it’s actually an auction-by-auction issue. So in other words, one auction by a house might go very smoothly and not have all of these issues, but then the next one, there isn’t as much transparency and these things aren’t covered.” Clemmer said Keller’s attention on the established art auction houses is misplaced. “The auction houses based here in Santa Fe, I’ve dealt with them extensively, and those operations are very much on the up-and-up,” Clemmer said. “I would be very surprised if

sions and more, but was ultimately tempered down. Keller said his bill is a starting point that he hopes all segments of the art economy will help mold — including auction houses. In a state where $6.5 million worth of art adorns the walls of the Capitol building, and a city where $200 million in art changes hands each year according to the last formal study a decade ago, Keller says he recognizes what’s at stake for Santa Fe and New Mexico. “This is a white-hot Santa Fe issue, and it’s a reflection of the uniqueness of New Mexico,” he said. “There are not a lot of states that care a lot about this. New York and New Mexico are two that do.”

people were taking issue with them. It doesn’t serve anybody’s purposes well to try and do dirt by the people who are in your own backyard.” Regulatory scrutiny should instead target less reputable art auctions that pass through town for a few days then move on, Clemmer said. “I think there should be a greater concern over these fly-by-night operations that come through with truckloads of stuff, set up shop and sell some art that I think is of questionable authenticity,” he said. “They basically travel from town to town with their own stuff. As to where it comes from, I couldn’t really say.” The legislation Keller proposed instead targets permanent auction houses.

EL NUEVO MEXICANO SFPS ofrece educación bilingüe Por Uriel J. García

Para The New Mexican


erca de 20 estudiantes de segundo grado en la escuela Agua Fría estaban contando dinero durante la clase de matemáticas cuando el profesor Miguel Velásquez preguntó en español, si alguien quería pasar al frente y mostrar la combinación de monedas y billetes que había usado para tener $10.26. Después de que una niña mostrara la solución, algunos de los compañeros levantaron la mano, diciendo en inglés, “Yo lo hice diferente.” Velásquez respondió en español: “¿Tienen otra manera?” Los estudiantes, hispanohablantes, son parte del programa de dos idiomas de la escuela, ahora en su décimo año. La primaria Agua Fría es una de las siete escuelas del distrito con programas de dos idiomas. Cerca de dos tercios de los aproximadamente 600 estudiantes de la escuela participan en el programa, de acuerdo a la directora Suzanne Jacquez-Gorman. Los estudiantes inscritos en preescolar de la clase del programa de dos idiomas, reciben 20 por ciento de su instrucción en inglés y 80 por ciento en español. Agua Fría ofrece clases donde los estudiantes son sólo hispanohablantes, así como clases del Programa de Doble Inmersión donde están combinados hispanohablantes con estudiantes de habla inglesa. Jazquez-Gorman dice que la escuela tiene más estudiantes hispanohablantes, pero ella desea tener al menos 21 estudiantes de habla inglesa inscritos en preescolar el próximo año, para poder ofrecer clases del Programa de Doble Inmersión. Las Escuelas Públicas de Santa Fe están aceptando solicitudes de transferencia a otra escuela dentro de su página en línea Jacquez-Gorman menciona que desea que los padres se den cuenta de los beneficios de la educación bilingüe cuando deciden inscribir a sus hijos. De acuerdo al libro titulado La Educación de los Estudiantes de Inglés para un Mundo en Constante Transformación por los reconocidos investigadores de educación Collier & Thomas, el estudiante promedio que asiste a un Programa de Doble Inmersión desde preescolar, supera de manera significativa a los estudiantes monolingües de inglés en los exámenes estandariza-

Sus padres le piden traducir desde comerciales de TV hasta cartas importantes. David Call, encargado del programa de ciencias en la primaria Agua Fría, menciona que las familias de los estudiantes también han visto los positivos beneficios culturales. Cerca de la mitad de los estudiantes cuyo idioma principal es inglés son nuevomexicanos que desean aprender la lengua de sus ancestros, de acuerdo a un reporte de la escuela. “Mis momentos de más orgullo llegan con el abuelo o la abuela que dice ‘Mi nieto puede hablar español,’ ” comenta Call sobre los abuelos que expresan gran alegría cuando pueden comunicarse en español con sus nietos. “Sientes una emoción que no te cabe en el pecho. Es una cosa cultural hermosa que hemos visto y aún sigue ocurriendo.” Este otoño, los estudiantes de la escuela Agua Fría serán ubicados en

Home sales in Santa Fe rise 23 percent By Bruce Krasnow The New Mexican


he Santa Fe Association of Realtors will announce the details at its media breakfast Jan. 16, but the news is now official: 2012 was the best year for residential home sales since 2007. Alan Ball, an agent with Keller Williams Santa Fe who keeps monthly sales data, reports residential sales hit 1,641 last year — up 23 percent from 2011. But as we’ve reported here all year, that does not mean all is well with the sellers. Due to distressed short sales and foreclosures, the average sales prices dropped 6 percent in 2012 to $421,577. But the year ended with a bang as December saw 150 sales — and the fourth quarter itself saw three strong months in a row, and that despite the fiscal uncertainties coming from Washington, D.C. uuu

His business is hopping

Knowledge about beer-making given and received at Santa Fe Homebrew Supply

By Chris Quintana The New Mexican


ami Nordby doesn’t sell beer — he just sells all the materials a person needs to make it at Santa Fe Homebrew Supply. Nordby stocks wine-making, beercrafting and cheese-curdling materials, though the majority of his business comes from brewers. To that end, he stocks supplies for extract brewing, which he said can be easier but costs more on the ingredients end, and for all-grain-brewing, a more time-intensive process. He said that in the past, beermakers made up 85 percent of his total sales, though he said the recent crop of fruit in the state has sent more winemakers his way. And while he doesn’t have a product he’d call his best-seller, he said he does sell a lot of brewing starter kits and recipe packs that include every ingredient needed for a single batch. To that end, he can also help brewers come up with new recipes or order speciality items. “There are so many directions people can go,” Nordby said at his shop on Thursday. “Imagination is the only limit.” Nordby’s shop is split roughly into two sections: equipment in the storefront and ingredients in the back. In the front, giant glass containers rest on shelves alongside powdered chemicals. Smaller items such as spigots, beer caps and yeast line the smaller shelves. It’s the back of the shop that feels

more like a brewery. Three-foot-tall plastic containers house both local and international grain for all-grain brewing, and a couple of freezers hold several varieties of green and earthy-smelling hops, another common ingredient in beer making. Nordby can tell which grain will create a chocolate porter or which hops will make a beer more bitter with an ease that comes from years of familiarity with his craft. But it wasn’t always that way for him. The shop was a gamble, Nordby said, especially given that he didn’t have a lot of brewing experience when he began the venture. Nordby said that he had a passion for the craft, but he did it on a small level

— he used to brew in his apartment. But about five years ago, he said, he noticed Santa Fe didn’t have a local brew supply store, so he and a couple of friends financed the store. “We just didn’t know any better,” he said. Part of his success came from an advertising campaign that consumed about 25 percent of his initial budget. From there, people started talking about the shop, which he said kept him in business. His wife also had another child during that five-year period, so he hired some part-time help to keep the doors open during times when he was away. But because the store earnings went to employees, Nordby said, his

inventory declined. He is back at work full time now, and Nordby said he’s working on replenishing his once-expansive stock. In the five years since he started, Nordby said that he’s learned a lot from customers who were experienced brewers, and now he can offer that accumulated knowledge to newbies. John Rowley said he is one of the customers who has benefited from Nordby’s knowledge. “He was a great resource for sure,” Rowley said. “He knows a lot, and he wants to help.” Rowely also is president of the Sangre de Cristo Craft Brewers, a group that Rowley said frequents Homebrew. And though it’s located on the south side of town, Santa Fe Homebrew Supply is still the closet supply store for small brewers in Santa Fe, Rowley said. Before Nordby set up shop in 2007, Santa Fe brewers drove to Albuquerque or farther for supplies. Rowley said that while stores in Albuquerque might have more esoteric supplies, he prefers to avoid the trip and support local business. Rowley also said he recommends Nordby’s store to new brewers. “We got a great thing going here; it’s a really supportive shop,” Rowley said. “I wouldn’t go to Albuquerque unless you absolutely have to. It’s almost too much, and it can be intimidating for a new brewer.” Contact Chris Quintana at

The restoration project at La Fonda is well under way, and one of the challenges for Jennifer Kimball and her managers is to phase the project so it doesn’t impact visitors. To accomplish that, contractors try to start work at 9 a.m. on the first 100 rooms now under construction. As those rooms come back on line in April or May, the renovation moves to the next 80 rooms with the goal of having all the rooms completely modernized and ungraded by Indian Market weekend. Kimball is also proud that all of the 220 workers will remain employed during the nine-month project and that vacancy rates have not been impacted. Because of the lower supply of rooms, occupancy is close to 100 percent — of course, the $89 a night special La Fonda is offering during the remodeling doesn’t hurt with bargainconscious travelers. Majority ownership in La Fonda still rests with the four daughters of the late Sam and Ethel Ballen — Lois, Penina, Lenore and Marta Ballen. uuu

The National Association of the Remodeling industry’s fourth-quarter Remodeling Business Pulse data of current and future remodeling business conditions has experienced significant growth across all indicators, with forecasting in the next three months hitting its all-time highest level. The significantly positive results have a lot to do with homeowner security, remodelers say. “Remodelers are indicating major growth in the future, with many saying that clients are feeling more stable in their financial future and their employment situations; therefore, they are spending more freely on remodeling needs,” says Tom O’Grady, association chairman and a builder in Drexel Hill, Pa. Growth indicators in the last quarter of 2012 are as follows: u Current business conditions up 2.1 percent since last quarter u Number of inquiries up 3.9 percent since last quarter u Requests for bids up 3.7 percent since last quarter u Conversion of bids to jobs up 3.5 percent since last quarter u Value of jobs sold is up 4.3 percent since last quarter Still, according to the data, expectations for 2013 are even brighter. Two-thirds of remodelers forecasted the next three months positively, and the rating jumped 13.1 percent from last quarter. Drivers of this positive outlook continue to be postponement of projects (81 percent reporting) and the improvement of home prices (51 percent reporting). “Now that the election is over, consumer confidence is starting to grow and so has remodelers’ confidence,” O’Grady says. “NARI members are looking forward to having a well-deserved, productive year

ra unos días before la fiesta de Saint Valentine and Canutito estaba sitting en su English class en la escuela. La mestra, que se llamaba Mrs. Smoker, had given un assignment a la clase to write algo about their experiencia más memorable. Canutito just stared al blank page adelante de él trying to come up con algo para escribir. Just then la Flora, que era la muchachita who used to sit on his left, le pasó una Larry Torres notita, simply Growing up saying ‘toma.’ Spanglish Canutito unfolded la notita todo carefully making sure que la mestra no estaba watchándolo. As he looked at it, su ojos got real grandes. The note said, ‘I love you. Do you love me? signed Flora.’ Canutito turned real quick to look a la Flora, who was busy haciendo su homework. He yelled at her “NO!” It wasn’t que la Flora era such a bad-looking girl; it was just que el suddenness de la declaración de amor had caught him todo off guard. Flora just looked at Canutito toda puzzled pero just then he noticed que en el otro lado de la Flora his best friend, Joseph, was laughing his head off. He had pulled off un practical joke y la pobre de la Flora era la víctima inocente. “UUU, I’m going to get you back; te la voy a pagar,” Canutito threatened Joseph pero no muy loud para que la Mrs. Smoker wouldn’t hear him. So instead de sentarse a hacer su class assignment, Canutito started making una lista de good Valentine’s Day pranks que podía play on his friend Joseph para hacer get even. The following day Canutito brought un dulce de chocolate to school y se lo dio a Joseph. Joseph lo miró suspiciously and said, “¿Qué tiene este chocolate candy, Ex-Lax? Tú tienes que ser más smart que eso to get even conmigo.” He threw el dulce de chocolate en el trashcan. Canutito nomás hizo smile. At noon Canutito ya estaba sitting en la cafetería cuando Joseph came over a sentarse con él. Canutito had already se había comido su Sloppy Joe y estaba sentado con un cup cake en la mano. “I saved you mi cup cake, Joe,” Canutito said, ofreciéndole el quequito a Joseph. “What did you do?” Joseph asked him. “Did you lamberlo or maybe spit en el cupcake? You’re not going to pagármela pa’trás that easily. I’m on to you.” And he took el quequito and tossed it en el trashcan. Canutito just smiled otra vez. Esa tarde cuando Joseph got home de la escuela, su mamá, la Mrs. Sánchez, estaba en la cocina. “There’s something for you arriba de la mesa,” le dijo. Canutito said que era un presente para ti. It is wrapped pero yo pienso que es aquel new record que you having been wanting.” “This is too easy,” said Joseph, tossing the gift en el fireplace. He watched as it burned en la lumbre. “Canutito thinks que es más esmarte que yo pero I’m on to all of his triques. This was probably un old broken disco que estaba todo scratched.” El día siguiente at school Canutito asked Joseph, “Oye Joe, ¿cómo te gustó that new record de la música de Carlos Santana que I gave you? I was muy fregón, don’t you think? “You mean to decirme que it was a real CD de Santana?” Joseph groaned. “¡Simón que sí!” Canutito affirmed. I bought it para ti yesterday. Y el cup cake was perfectly bueno también. I hadn’t licked ninguna parte de él. And while I’m at it, el dulce de chocolate era a gift de mi mamá porque she knows que te gustan. The way I got back at you era con hacerte pensar que I was going to do something, pero te quemé el melón; I just sat back y te dejé fool yourself. That was mi trique …”

For taxpayers with an unexpected balance due, it’s important to make sure that you understand that there are payment options. And, we can discuss adjustments to withholding or estimated payments to avoid a balance due in the future. This is actually a common situation and some would say it’s not a bad situation.

Financial planner = financial doctor Financial planners are a little like family doctors. They can be generalists or specialists, and the best ones help you keep your affairs nicely in balance so that you can live a long, enjoyable life. Legitimate professional financial planners have a college diploma or university degree, along with specialized training. Ask which professional asso-

ciations they belong to. Be sure to check that their advice is given independently; that means find out who pays them. It is recommended that you meet at least once a year with your financial planner, so that they can put a human face to your file and so that you can continue to be assured that he or she is a trustworthy professional.

involved through take-home assignments and workshops that focused on overcoming barriers to good food and exercise. For example, in areas with poor access to parks or play spaces, parents were coached to encourage kids to use stairs instead of elevators and to walk instead of taking a bus. Children’s weight and exercise habits were measured at the start and 1½ and 3 years later. Although many moved or dropped out by the time the study ended, researchers documented a significant increase in knowledge, attitude and health habit scores among kids in the program versus the comparison group. The proportion of children at a healthy weight increased from 62 percent at the start to 75 percent at three years for those in the program. Ironically, in Colombia, that mostly meant that more undernourished kids grew to reach a healthy weight. In New York, where the program plans to launch in several early childhood and Head Start programs this spring and fall, project leaders will have to tackle under- and overweight kids.

Baxter, regional director for Latin America for Sesame Workshop. The new message is that certain things like cookies are “something you can eat sometimes, but there are some foods that you can eat all the time,” like vegetables, he said. The healthy messages have been gradually incorporated into the television show, and its producers even made a doctor Muppet — Dr. Ruster (pronounced “Rooster”) — in Fuster’s image for the preschool project. It launched in Colombia because U.S. schools that Fuster approached years ago were reluctant, but a wealthy family’s foundation was willing to sponsor the experiment in Bogota. It involved 1,216 children and 928 parents from 14 preschools. Some were given the program and others served as a comparison group. Kids had training on healthy habits and how the body works for an hour a day for five months using Sesame Workshop-produced videos, a board game (the “heart game”), songs, posters and activities.

Question: What can be done to stop a 19-year-old from biting his finger nails? This has been an ongoing habit from early childhood. He’s obviously damaging his fingers and maybe even his teeth. Verbal correction and even punishment has not stopped him. Maybe it is not that big a deal. Please advise. Answer: You’ve come to the right guy. I happen to be an expert on nail biting because I bit my nails well into adulthood. Why? Don’t John know. How did I stop? Don’t know. Rosemond One day, I realized I was no longer Living With biting my nails and had to buy a Children nail cutter. Like your son, I also chewed the skin around my nails. When I was in my mid-20s, I developed a potentially serious blood infection from doing so. I was given penicillin, to which I developed a serious allergic reaction. That’s probably what cured me, but I don’t recommend blood poisoning as a solution to nail-biting. My expert answer to the question of how to get your son to stop nail-biting is “I don’t have a clue.” The problem is that nail-biting has no single cause. Yes, many nail-biters are highly anxious, but some are not, and most highly anxious people do not bite their nails. Therefore, every cure for nail-biting has to be customized to the person in question. Medical doctors and psychologists refer to nailbiting as onychophagia. Most nail-biters don’t develop any serious side-effects, but prolonged biting can result in dental problems, viral and bacterial infections, and parasites. But giving this information to nail-biters in an attempt to scare them into stopping rarely works. I do most definitely know that the more attention people pay to your son’s habit, the more difficult it’s going to be for him to stop. The more things you and others say to him, the more pressure you put on him, the more concern you express, the more you point out to him that he’s biting his nails, the more critical you are or seem to be, the more difficult it’s going to be for him to exercise the requisite self-control. And let me assure you that at his age, the only person who can get your son to stop biting his nails is your son. Online, one finds various “cures,” mostly involving bitter stuff painted on and around the offender’s nails. Parents who’ve used products of this sort usually tell me their children become accustomed to the taste and keep right on biting. At your son’s age, clinical hypnosis might be helpful, but only if he is highly motivated to stop. Contrary to myth, hypnosis cannot cause someone to do something — give up smoking, for example — that the person does not already want to do. Also, stage hypnosis and clinical hypnosis are horses of two entirely different colors. The purpose of the former is to entertain; the purpose of the latter is to retrain. If there are clinical hypnotists in your area, they can be found under “Hypnosis” in the Yellow Pages.

A three-year experiment in South America suggests it can. Now, the Sesame Street project is coming to the United States. Already, a test run in a New York City preschool has seen results: Four-year-old Jahmeice Strowder got her mom to make cauliflower for the first time in her life. A classmate, Bryson Payne, bugged his dad for a banana every morning and more salads. A parent brought home a loaf of bread instead of Doritos. “What we created, I believe, is a culture” of healthy eating to fight a “toxic environment” of junk food and too little exercise, said Dr. Valentin Fuster, a cardiologist at New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital. Six years ago, he started working with Sesame Workshop, producers of television’s Sesame Street, on a project aimed at 3- to 5-year-olds. “At that age, they pay attention to everything” and habits can be changed, he said. The need is clear: A third of U.S. children and teens are obese or overweight. Many don’t get enough exercise, and a recent study found that kids’ fitness has declined worldwide. They’re at high risk for heart and other problems later in life. “The focus is younger and younger” to try to prevent this, said Dr. Stephen Daniels, a University of Colorado pediatrician and a spokesman for the American Heart Association. The group’s annual conference in November featured Fuster’s experiment as one of the year’s top achievements in heart disease prevention. For Sesame Street, the project offered a chance to improve the lives of young viewers and give a makeover to certain Muppets. “While Cookie Monster is an engaging figure, we felt there was an opportunity there to really model healthy eating,” said Jorge

The federal offer is a unique agreement between the wildlife service and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service. The agencies will have conservation practices outlined and agreements available in the coming weeks. To enter an agreement, landowners would have to undertake specific conservation measures, such as keeping the grasses long enough to hide nests, clearing brush and building ramps in cattle water troughs to ensure the birds don’t drown.

U.S. seeks ways to manage wild horse overpopulation Population predicted to reach 145,000 by 2020 By Lenny Bernstein and Brady Dennis

The Washington Post

When Velma Johnston almost single-handedly persuaded Congress to pass the Wild FreeRoaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971, her goal was to protect an icon of the American West that had been slaughtered, poisoned and abused and was quickly disappearing. More than four decades later, the woman known as “Wild Horse Annie” would undoubtedly be shocked by what her law has wrought: So many mustangs, stashed in so many places, that authorities admit they have no idea how to handle them all. Under the law, the federal government is responsible for more than 40,000 mustangs on the range in 10 Western states, where they compete with cattle and wildlife for increasingly scarce water and forage. The public desire to adopt them is limited. Contraceptive efforts have largely failed. U.S. law — reaffirmed this month — effectively precludes slaughtering them, or selling them to anyone who would. Activists want the horses left on the land. Solving the decades-old problem is the task of the federal Bureau of Land Management. Already it manages 50,000 horses and burros it has rounded up and sent to pastures and corrals. But it is rapidly running out of places for more. Now, by devoting about $1.5 million from the new budget agreement for fiscal 2014, the agency is ready to take another shot at one of the West’s most intractable wildlife problems. It is inviting anyone with a legitimate idea of how to curb the horse and burro populations to step up and propose it. The agency will study the ones it finds most promising and try again to find a solution. “We need all the help we can get,” said Ed Roberson, the BLM’s assistant director of resources and planning. The agency periodically takes wild horses from 179 “herd management areas” it controls on 31.6 million acres, mostly when they threaten to overwhelm the available food and water or destroy the surroundings, officials said. It sends them to private pastures if space is available and holds the rest in corrals. Not only do these efforts feature the unfortunate visual of panicked mustangs fleeing low-flying helicopters, but activists and others have claimed that horses have been injured and treated inhumanely during roundups. “We don’t have an overpopulation problem,” said Anne Novak, executive director of Protect Mustangs, a horse advocacy group. “The only overpopulation problem is in the holding pens.” The BLM says that the open range it manages can support 26,677 horses and burros, and estimates that 40,605 are roaming that land. A National Research Council study released in June concluded that the agency may have undercounted by 10 percent to 50 percent, and that horse populations were probably growing at 15 percent to 20 percent every year. The mustangs, offspring of horses left behind by miners, ranchers, Native Americans and others, have no natural predators, except for an occasional mountain lion or bear. Left alone on the range, the agency predicts, their population would soar to 145,000 by 2020. Meanwhile, the BLM is sheltering and feeding 33,608 horses in pastures at $1.30 per head each day, and 16,160 horses and burros in “short-term corrals” at four times the expense, officials said. (The temporary stays can last as long as 18 months.) Joan Guilfoyle, chief of the BLM’s wild horse and burro division, predicted that the holding areas in states such as Kansas and Oklahoma will chew up 64 percent of the $77 million Congress gave the program for fiscal 2014. “Our long-term goal is to reduce that,” she said. “We don’t consider that a success story. We haven’t had very many options.” Bruce Wagman, a California-based attorney

In 2011, several companies sought permits from the Department of Agriculture to resume horse-slaughtering operations. The most high-profile was Valley Meat in New Mexico, whose efforts triggered renewed debate — and many months of legal fights — over whether the practice should be allowed. who represents numerous animal protection groups across the country, argued that the government’s approach violates the spirit of the 1971 law. “They’ve been doing the wrong thing since day one,” he said. “Instead of protecting and preserving them, they are doing the opposite.” The Nevada Association of Counties and the Nevada Farm Bureau Federation couldn’t disagree more. Last month, they sued the BLM, alleging that it is not enforcing the portion of the 1971 law that requires it to manage wild horses in a way that maintains ecological balance for all species, including the millions of cattle that graze on federal land. “They’re not managing the herds,” said Lorinda Wichman, a Nye County, Nev., commissioner and president-elect of the state’s Association of Counties. “We have some herds in Nye County that are 600 percent over” what the area can support. One obvious solution, sending the horses to slaughter, is out of the question. The BLM does not knowingly auction horses to anyone who would slaughter them. And the last of several domestic horse-slaughtering plants ceased operation in 2007 after Congress withheld funding for federal inspectors. When that funding was restored in 2011, several companies sought permits from the Department of Agriculture to resume horseslaughtering operations. The most high-profile was Valley Meat in New Mexico, whose efforts triggered renewed debate — and many months of legal fights — over whether the practice should be allowed. When Congress cut the funding for inspectors, “it did far more to hurt the welfare of horses,” said Blair Dunn, an attorney who has represented Valley Meat. “People were just abandoning them. … They are starving to death or dying of thirst.” Wagman, the attorney who represents horse advocacy groups, responded that “horse slaughter is inherently inhumane. Even if it’s not a legal issue, it’s an ethical issue.” The argument became moot recently when Congress passed a budget that again withholds money for inspectors in horse-slaughter plants. Adoption was once a serious option. In fiscal 1995, 9,655 horses and burros were adopted, according to the BLM, but that dropped to a low of 2,583 by fiscal 2012, for reasons that aren’t clear. That leaves fertility control as the most promising alternative. One drug, porcine zona pellucida, is effective for a year and can be injected into horses on the range. But longer-acting versions have proven to be not nearly as reliable, Guilfoyle said. Until a new idea comes along — the BLM hopes its $1.5 million offer will generate creative suggestions — the agency is left with a combination of fertility control and roundups.

brown, medium-sized bird makes its home and nests in the long prairie grasses from March to July. The prairie grouse was once abundant in its five-state region, but its historical home of grasslands and prairies has been reduced by an estimated 84 percent as development converted habitat to other uses. When federal regulators first proposed in December 2012 to list the bird under the Endangered Species Act, there were fewer than 45,000, according to the wildlife service. A recent survey counted 18,000. Drought and loss of habitat are blamed for the decline. Jerry Homfeld, whose family has been ranching and farming in the Texas Panhandle town of Hereford since the 1920s, said he would be inter-

ested in the federal government’s offer. About half his family’s 5,000 acres are set aside for conservation; the other half is mostly for cattle grazing with shorter, native grasses where the birds are less likely to thrive. “It scares me,” he said. “If they implement this chicken as an endangered species we might not be able to graze our land, nothing, and that’s our living.” The oil and gas industry, which has boomed in recent years in the bird’s habitat, has opposed federal protections and worked with state wildlife departments to put together a “rangewide plan” that allows industry, landowners and ranchers to be paid to set aside conservation land or pay more to operate in crucial habitat.

Phasing in Real ID will affect N.M.


or a number of years, the U.S. government has delayed implementation of the Real ID Act; this has been a benefit to New Mexico, since the state is not in compliance with the act. Now, however, the act might be phased in. Beginning in October, New Mexico driver’s licenses will not be valid identification at federal facilities. Why? Because the state issues licenses to immigrants who are living in the country illegally. Thus, the license is not proof of citizenship or residence. This problem can be corrected during the upcoming legislative session by passing the governor’s proposal to cease the practice. Encourage your legislators to pass her proposal. Or make sure you start carrying your passport with you.

Fight against tobacco should go global


ifty years ago this month, U.S. Surgeon General Luther Terry announced the bombshell conclusions of a new report to a crowded room of journalists: Cigarette smoking causes lung cancer, is associated with other deadly illnesses and warrants remedial action. That 1964 surgeon general’s report on smoking and health spurred profound and lasting changes in tobacco use and policies in the United States, but its call to action has gone unfulfilled internationally. In the intervening decades, smoking has expanded in developing countries and has had devastating consequences for the world’s poor. Until that 1964 report, smoking rates had been climbing in the United States for six decades. A majority of American adults, including Terry and five of the report’s advisory committee members, were current or former smokers. Public health efforts had been bogged down in debates with cigarette industry-funded scientists over the meaning of “causality” and the relevance to humans of cancer in tobacco-exposed mice. But, based on a review of 7,000 health studies involving more than 1 million men and women, the surgeon general report’s showed an ironclad link between smoking and lung cancer, and everything changed. Step by step, the government cracked down on tobacco. Warning labels were added to cigarette packages (1965), cigarette advertising was banned on television and radio (1971), smoking on commercial airline flights was forbidden (1987), and tobacco products were put under Food and Drug Administration oversight (2009). U.S. cities and states — New York City and California in particular — led the way with bans on smoking in public places. U.S. criminal and civil tobacco lawsuits exposed and punished tobacco companies for decades of obfuscation and malfeasance. The results speak for themselves. The percentage of Americans who smoke has dropped by more than half since 1964, to 18 percent. An analysis in a recent Journal of the American Medical Association

It’s wonderful that U.S. Sen. Tom Udall is getting deserved national attention for his groundbreaking work reforming Senate filibuster rules. The importance of his work cannot be overstated. If only he would be equally farsighted about nuclear weapons programs. He should end his unqualified support for a program to rebuild the B61 nuclear bomb that tripled in costs to $12 billion and will create the world’s first nuclear “smart” bomb. The B61’s main mission is forward deployment in Europe, a throwback to the Cold War, but now with new military capabilities, contrary to declared U.S. international policy. Instead, Udall should oppose Los Alamos National Laboratory’s plans to “cap and cover” and leave permanently buried 1 million cubic meters of radioactive wastes and backfill, and push

estimated that the decline in U.S. smoking saved 8 million lives and extended average U.S. life expectancy by two years. Other developed countries have achieved similarly dramatic smoking reductions. A recent Citigroup investment report speculated that smoking could virtually disappear in wealthy countries over the next 30 to 50 years. But this is not the end of the story, sadly. With sales diminishing in the United States and other high-income nations, the tobacco industry has aggressively expanded in poorer countries. Between 1970 and 2000, cigarette consumption tripled in developing nations. There are now 1 billion smokers globally, almost one-third of the world’s adult population, and smoking rates are increasing in some countries, such as Bangladesh and Indonesia. Many expect Africa to be next. Nearly 40 percent of the world’s children — 700 million — breathe secondhand tobacco smoke at home. Unless urgent action is taken, the World Health Organization estimates, tobacco use will kill 1 billion people this century. More than 80 percent of those deaths will be in developing countries. U.S. officials no longer use trade measures to pry open emerging economies to imported cigarettes, as had been done throughout the 1980s and 1990s and, despite occasional, significant congressional pressure, have also refrained from trade disputes against other countries’ tobacco control measures.

On the other hand, tobacco use, which annually kills more people worldwide than HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined, is not even a line item in the $8 billion U.S. global health budget. The U.S. Agency for International Development has a formal tobacco policy, last reissued in 2009, that indicates that the agency will not undertake international tobacco control programs for staffing and budget reasons, although it will participate in international policy discussions. The U.S. is one of a handful of countries, along with Cuba, Somalia and Zimbabwe, that has yet to ratify the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. We can do better, at little cost. The mandate and resources of federal agencies should be increased to help developing countries build their own programs to tax and regulate tobacco, and to warn against smoking. Modest aid would go a long way. In 1997, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., asked a question on the floor of the Senate about U.S. tobacco policy: “We want to stop American kids from smoking; so why don’t we seem to care as much about Asian or African kids?” Seventeen years later — and 50 years since the landmark surgeon general’s report on smoking’s evils — we are still asking. Thomas J. Bollyky is the senior fellow for global health, economics and development at the Council on Foreign Relations. This commentary was first published in the Los Angeles Times.

ne of the more encouraging signs in Santa Fe’s public schools is the ability of Superintendent Joel Boyd and his team to look at what is and imagine, instead, what could be. Whether providing additional choices for secondary school students in the form of an International Baccalaureate curriculum or redesigning teacher evaluations that are less dependent on standardized tests, the district believes in not accepting the status quo. Now, faced with teacher retirements and resignations, Santa Fe Public Schools is resurrecting a concept that was piloted back in the 1980s — finding smart, college-educated adults and retraining them to be public school teachers. Rather than an alternative licensure program that people might take online or a six-week teacher boot camp, the proposal would recruit people with a bachelor’s degree and then pay for certification courses at Santa Fe Community College. Mentoring would be essential, and the recruits would agree to spend three years teaching in Santa Fe’s schools. It’s win-win. The teacher-to-be receives financial help changing careers. The district gets new teachers with broad experience of the world and expertise in their academic subjects. Back in the 1980s, Santa Fe was one of the first districts in the country to use an alternative way to become a teacher. Liberal arts graduates went to The University of New Mexico, then team-taught in a classroom, receiving a license at the end of the year. This program is similar, but all of the classes for the aspiring teachers will be held in Santa Fe, with no trips to Albuquerque necessary. It’s a way to bring local people into teaching; after all, folks who already live here have adjusted to Santa Fe’s high cost of living. That often can be a roadblock when recruiting teachers from other towns and states. The district initially will try to recruit up to 15 candidates a year. People with a bachelor’s degree then take classes — between 18 and 21 credits — at the community college to become certified. Just think, when the new Higher Learning Center is completed and open, people who work in town will find attending classes even more convenient. Wisely, Santa Fe has partners in the venture. St. John’s College, famed for its Great Books curriculum, the community college and the Academy for the Love of Learning will be working with the district on the proposal. This promises to bring bright, young liberal arts graduates, midcareer adults and nontraditional candidates into teaching. When these caring adults — properly trained — begin teaching, the whole community will benefit. Some teacher training programs, we believe, do not spend enough time preparing candidates to take on the hard job of teaching. That’s why so many teachers quit the business; they can’t handle the job. The combination of classes, life experience and mentoring from quality teachers should make this program a success — and fulfill the

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Jan. 27, 1914: E.W. Trowbridge, who has a fine bunch of dairy cows, has opened up a private creamery on his farm northeast of the city and will increase the equipment as fast as found necessary. It will be his purpose to buy cream from the farmers and manufacture it into butter. The equipment as he is starting out will take care of at least 200 pounds of butter a week. Jan. 27, 1964: An overnight outing by Boy Scout Troop 841 of Albuquerque ended in tragedy Sunday. One member died from head injuries suffered in a 100-foot fall and three members had to be rescued from narrow ledges by a joint State Police-Air Force rescue team. The boys were attempting to climb down the face of a cliff in Bear Trap Canyon when a piece of the ledge gave way and the one boy fell. The boys had been hiking and decided to take a shorter way back to camp. They had been ordered to return to camp by the trail they took first but ignored a warning of the danger. Jan. 27, 1989: Patients who owe money to St. Vincent Hospital will be denied non-emergency care until their bills are paid, the hospital board of directors decided Thursday.

LOS ANGELES aft Punk’s electronicfunk grooves have won big at the Grammys. The French electronic duo’s Random Access Memories won album of the year, and their infectious hit, “Get Lucky,” won record of the year at the awards show. The song features Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers. Daft Punk, who sports helmets in public, won four awards, as did Pharrell Williams and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. “Well, I suppose the robots would like to thank …” joked Williams, who also won nonclassical producer of the year. “You know honestly, I bet, France is really proud of these guys right now.” Daft Punk also picked up honors for best dance/electronica album for Random Access Memories and pop duo/ group performance for “Get Lucky,” which earned Williams a trophy. Williams had seven nods, but competed with himself and could only take home four awards, which he did. While the men dominated, Lorde was the princess of the Grammys: Her hit ‘Royals’ won record of the year and best pop solo performance. “Thank you everyone who has let this song explode, because it’s been mental,” she said. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis won best new artist and rap album for The Heist, beating efforts from Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, Kanye West and Drake. “Wow, we’re here on the stage right now,” said Macklemore, thanking fans first, then his fiancee and team. “I want to say we made this album without a record label, we made it independently and we appreciate all the support.” The duo performed the gay-acceptance hit “Same Love,” and 33 couples — some

Madonna joined in wearing an all-white suit and hat, and sang “Open Your Heart” and some of “Same Love” with Mary Lambert. Keith Urban cried and Katy Perry caught a bouquet during the performance. Beyoncé kicked off the Grammys with a steamy and smoky performance of “Drunk In Love.” She started on a chair and then grinded in a revealing black outfit. Jay Z emerged in a fitted suit to rap his verse, and the couple — parents of little Blue Ivy — held hands and danced together. Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar collaborated onstage to create an electrifying performance, as the acts sported all-white and went from rap song to rock song. Robin Thicke performed with Chicago, singing the group’s hit songs before going into “Blurred Lines,” which energized the crowd. Thicke finished the performance singing on the floor. Perry sang “Dark Horse” in an eerie forest with fire that mirrored the song’s vibe, and John Legend and Taylor Swift — who whipped her head, and hair, back and forth — played pianos during their slow songs. Pink twirled in the air in her signature Cirque du Soleil-form. Swift, who is nominated for album of the year, lost best country album in a surprise upset to rising singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves. “Oh my goodness. Oh my god. I can’t even. I can’t even,” said a teary-eyed, but happy Musgraves, whose Same Trailer Different Park won the honor. “I got to make a record that I poured myself into and I’m so proud of.” The singer also beat Swift for best country song and was nominated for new artist. Justin Timberlake, who wasn’t up for any of the major awards, won three trophies, including best R&B song for “Pusher Love Girl.”

Team Rice steals Pro Bowl with Tolbert conversion By Oskar Garcia

HONOLULU — Jerry Rice has fresh bragging rights on Deion Sanders nearly a decade after both players retired from the NFL. Dallas running back DeMarco Murray caught a 20-yard touchdown pass with 41 seconds left, and Carolina running back Mike Tolbert plunged into the end zone for a 2-point conversion to give Rice a win over Sanders in the first schoolyardstyle Pro Bowl on Sunday. “They called my number the whole way,” Tolbert said on the field after the game. “Philip [Rivers] told

them to give it to me. My old teammate, he told them to give it to me.” Baltimore’s Justin Tucker missed a 67-yard field goal on the game’s final play after missing a 66-yarder earlier in the game. The touchdown and conversion gave Rice a comeback win after Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles threw a 12-yard touchdown to Cleveland tight end Jordan Cameron with less than 5 minutes to play to give Sanders a 21-14 lead. The touchdowns by Cameron and Murray were the only scores of the second half in a game that had eight

Chilly reception in Big Apple Frigid winter weather greets Broncos, Seahawks on arrival in New Jersey By Barry Wilner

The Associated Press


ERSEY CITY, N.J. — An icy wind made its way through the Meadowlands, cut across the Hudson River and landed in frigid Manhattan. Looks like Mother Nature is taking seriously the NFL’s slogan for the upcoming Super Bowl: Best Served Cold. One week before kickoff, the Broncos and Seahawks arrived Sunday in the frozen Big Apple, bringing with them a bit of a thaw. Temperatures actually reached the low 20s. Hardly balmy. Not that the guys who will take the field at MetLife Stadium have any complaints or concerns. They’d play this one on the New Jersey tundra or in Death Valley. “My team is excited,” Peyton Manning said after the Broncos’ flight landed in New Jersey. “We worked hard to earn this opportunity. We couldn’t be more excited.” Manning said, “We were excited getting on that plane and excited getting off that plane.” What the Broncos and Seahawks must understand is that the upcoming week is unlike anything else they experienced during the season. Or during any season. More media, for sure. A glaring spotlight on everything. Spending a week away from home. Practicing in another team’s facility: the Seahawks at the Giants’ complex across the parking lots from MetLife Stadium, the Broncos at the Jets’ place in Florham Park, about 30 minutes from the Meadowlands. “I mean obviously it’s the biggest game that we’ve ever played in,” Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin said. “It’s one of the games that we’ve been dreaming about playing in since we were 6 years old on little league fields. The distraction

Heat top San Antonio to take Finals rematch

Wawrinka upsets injured Nadal in final

By Tim Reynolds

The Associated Press

MIAMI — Dwyane Wade came off the bench for the first time in more than six years. Heat 113 The Larry Spurs 101 O’Brien Trophy wasn’t at stake. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich sported a casual, no-tie look. An NBA Finals rematch, yes. An NBA Finals replay, it was not.

Either way, it still wound up going how the Miami Heat wanted. Chris Bosh scored 24 points on 9 for 10 shooting — making him 17 for his last 18 from the floor — and LeBron James added 18 points as the Heat rolled past the San Antonio Spurs 113-101 on Sunday, never trailing and leading by as many as 29 points along the way.

MELBOURNE, Australia — For 35 Grand Slam tournaments, the words of an Irish poet became something of a mantra for Stan Wawrinka. After one too many defeats, he had them inscribed on his left arm. At each ball toss, if he cared to glance, he could see the words of Samuel Beckett: “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.” He’s going to have to come up with something new after beating top-ranked Rafael Nadal to win his first Grand Slam title at the Australian Open on

Sunday night. Nadal was clearly hampered by a back injury after the first set, but Wawrinka blocked that out of his mind to win 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3. Coming into the first major of 2014, WawStan rinka hadn’t beaten Wawrinka No. 1-ranked Nadal in a dozen matches, and he had a 14-match losing streak against No. 2 Novak Djokovic, who won three straight Australian Open titles from 2011-13. He wasn’t even the highestranked player in Switzerland, not sur-

prising considering he was playing in Roger Federer’s generation. “I had that quote in my head for a long time. It was part of my life, how I see the life, and especially how I see the tennis life,” Wawrinka said of Beckett’s quote. He was pessimistic about anyone breaking the dominance of Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Andy Murray — the so-called Big Four who accounted for all but one of the previous 35 major titles. “It’s not easy because tennis life, when you lose, it’s tough to get through

Sochi scrambles to finish line SCOREBOARD Workers rushing to put final touches on new venues

Local results and schedules

By Nataliya Vasilyeva

Today on TV

SOCHI, Russia — If you are flying to Sochi for the Winter Games, book a window seat on the right side of the plane. That way, you’ll get a bird’s-eye view of how Russia spent $51 billion on gleaming new sports arenas and a cobweb of highways for this southern city on the Black Sea. That’s the Russia that President Vladimir Putin wants you to see. Russia’s bid to host the 2014 Games, which was championed and overseen in the smallest detail by its powerful leader, is supposed to show Russia as a resurgent economy, capable of turning a semiobscure seaside resort filled with cheesy bars into an international vacation magnet. All Sochi needs now is some visitors. All the indoor venues for the Winter Games are tucked into a compact Olympic park next to the Black Sea. The outdoor venues in the mountains are about 45 minutes away on a brand new squeakyclean train. Athletes, Olympic delegations, journalists and spectators on the day of the event all have free train tickets. Visitors who tested events that Sochi hosted last year were pleasantly surprised by the army of young volunteers who spoke good English and were eager to help. Expect to see them inside the Olympic bubble as well as at Sochi’s upgraded airport and train stations. Olympic Games these days all have stringent security checks and Sochi even more so since an Islamic insurgency is raging just a few hundred miles away. Railway stations are circled by temporary fencing, and all visitors reach venues through a security zone where they face an airportlike body search and an examination of their bags. Trains are patrolled by policemen who walk down the aisles throughout the journey. The Olympic venues are all built — some have been operational for a year — but workers are still busy with finishing touches, such as landscaping and road paving. Some of their recent work appears makeshift and hasty: Palm trees in the middle of a traffic roundabout were clearly withering away with no grass around them, just fake pine needles. Despite the last-minute labors, Sochi

organizing committee head Dmitry Chernyshenko said Friday that all venues have been tested and are ready to go, according to the R-Sport news agency. Outside the Olympic bubble, many streets in downtown Sochi are still potholed and muddy. A central boardwalk that had almost perfect paving in early December is all dug up — and it seems workers were removing paving stones to put used slabs back in. Sochi officials have tried to teach locals some English, but two weeks before the games, there were few signs that was working. The city offered language classes for taxi drivers, but none of the ones The Associated Press spoke to knew any English. Beliye Nochi, a legendary Sochi restaurant best known for its khinkali, or Caucasian dumplings, offers an English-language menu with pictures, but the restaurant’s staff members acknowledged they are not very fluent. Manager Svetlana Dzhanayeva said she and several waitresses had attended English classes but lamented that they were too brief. “What can a person learn in three days?” she said. Vyacheslav Yakubovsky, a waiter at the nearby Grill&Coffee, said his burger shop was more popular with foreigners, attracting about 30 a day. He went to employer-

provided English classes and was confident of his language skills. Back in 2007, Sochi residents may have greeted the news of the upcoming Olympics with jubilation. Years of enduring Russia’s biggest construction project, however, have made them weary. The billions of Olympic-related rubles poured into Sochi meant huge construction trucks have rattled across its streets around the clock for years, caking mud all over the place. The city is slowly recovering, but its residents still face plenty of challenges. Yelena Yaroslavskaya, a young mother walking with her baby in a central park, said her apartment block has been hit by recurrent power shortages ever since preparations for the games began. “We still get power shortages all the time,” Yaroslavskaya said. “It’s particularly tough when you have a kid and live on the 14th floor. We’re tired of the Olympics already.” Russian officials insist that electricity cuts across Sochi are just part of maintenance work as a new grid is being put into operation. Two power stations and dozens of sub-stations have been commissioned in the past year, but things are not getting easier for Sochi residents just yet. Other residents were more optimistic, saying the city’s massive infrastructure

Rematch: Duncan led Spurs with 23 points Continued from Page B-1 “Did that feel like The Finals? No, it did not feel like The Finals,” is how Heat coach Erik Spoelstra opened his postgame remarks, without anyone even asking the question. Mario Chalmers scored 16 points for Miami, which used Wade as a reserve for the first time since Jan. 6, 2008. Wade — an All-Star starter again this season — had not played in any of Miami’s most recent four games while dealing with ongoing knee rehabilitation, and finished with eight points and five assists in 24 minutes. Wade said not starting was his idea, and seemed generally pleased with his first game in nine days. “I’ve only had one practice in a while,” Wade said. “Team was in a good groove. I wanted to work my way into my rhythm.” Michael Beasley scored 12, Norris Cole scored 11 and Ray Allen added 10 for Miami (32-12). Spoelstra said afterward that nothing is set in stone about Wade’s status going forward. “It was just good to have him out there,” Spoelstra said. Tim Duncan led San Antonio with 23 points. Boris Diaw added 15, Marco Belinelli scored 12, and Tony Parker finished with 11 for the Spurs, who were without three players who played key roles in last year’s Finals. Kawhi Leonard (hand), Danny Green (hand) and Tiago Splitter (shoulder) all remain sidelined for San Antonio (33-11), which lost for just the fourth time in 20 road games. “Everybody has injuries. You have to deal with them during the season,” said Parker, who jammed a finger Sunday but didn’t seem concerned. “Obviously, it’s hurting us, but they’re going to come back. We just have to keep pushing and try to get better.” The game was tied at 44 late in the first half. Before long, it was a runaway. Miami closed the second quarter with a 14-6 spurt, outscored San Antonio 33-21 in the third and opened the fourth on a 13-4 run, just in case there was any remaining doubt, which hardly seems likely. Add it up, and over a 20-minute stretch the two-time defending champs outscored the Spurs 60-31. Sunday’s game was the first official meeting between the teams since Miami won Game 7 of last season’s Finals. San Antonio visited Miami in the preseason, a night where the title rematch was the only thing really worth talking about, but at least the Spurs didn’t have to see Miami’s third championship banner hanging from the rafters of AmericanAirlines Arena that night.

Ariz. Wildcats beat Utah for 20th win The Associated Press

The Heat’s Dwyane Wade knocks the ball from the Spurs’ Boris Diaw hands during the first half of Sunday’s game in Miami. J PAT CARTER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WARRIORS 103, TRAIL BLAZERS 88 In Oakland, Calif., Stephen Curry had 38 points, eight assists and seven rebounds, and Golden State used a smothering defense to beat Portland. The newly elected All-Star starting point guard, wearing shiny gold shoes, shot 13 of 23 from the floor to carry the offensive load. The Warriors did it all on defense, too, building a 22-point lead midway through the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach. NETS 85, CELTICS 79 In Boston, Andray Blatche scored 17 points to lead Brooklyn to victory in the first visit by Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to Boston since they were traded last July. The cornerstones of the Celtics’ 2008 championship team received video tributes early in the game with career highlights shown on the scoreboard. They didn’t have any highlights on the court until Garnett stole the ball from Rajon Rondo and dribbled ahead of the field for a layup that ended Boston’s last threat. KNICKS 110, LAKERS 103 In New York, Carmelo Anthony followed his 62-point game with 35 more, and the Knicks beat Los Angeles. Anthony finished with two points fewer than he had at halftime of his record-setting night Friday, but he scored six straight New York points down the stretch after the Lakers had cut the Knicks’ lead to two with just over 5 minutes left. And he had plenty of help as the Knicks won their second straight following a five-

game losing streak. NUGGETS 125, KINGS 117 In Sacramento, Calif., Ty Lawson scored 27 points, Wilson Chandler had 20, and Denver defeated the short-handed Kings for its second straight victory. The Nuggets went ahead late in the third quarter and never trailed again. Denver was coming off a 109-96 home win Saturday night over Indiana, which has the best record in the NBA. PELICANS 100, MAGIC 92 In New Orleans, Anthony Davis had 22 points, a career-high 19 rebounds and seven blocked shots, and the Pelicans beat Orlando to win their second straight game. Davis’ statistical line marked the first time since the franchise was founded as the Hornets in Charlotte in 1988 that a player on the club had that many points, rebounds and blocks in the same game. Tyreke Evans scored 13 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter to keep struggling Orlando at bay. SUNS 99, CAVALIERS 90 In Cleveland, Markieff Morris scored 27 points, and Phoenix rallied from an 18-point halftime deficit to defeat the Cavaliers. The Suns turned in a dominant second half, outscoring the Cavaliers 56-29. Channing Frye finished with 16 points, including four 3-pointers after halftime, and Goran Dragic scored 15 to help Phoenix pull off the comeback on the first stop of a fourgame road trip.

TUCSON, Ariz. — Nick Johnson scored 22 points, and Aaron Gordon provided a huge boost Arizona 65 despite Utah 56 a rough shooting night, helping top-ranked Arizona pull away from Utah 65-56 Sunday night for its school-record 20th straight win. Arizona (20-0, 7-0 Pac12) struggled early in both halves before Gordon made key plays with his hustle during a deciding secondhalf run. He finished with 10 points on 3-of-13 shooting and grabbed 12 rebounds. The Wildcats offset a 3-for-14 night from 3-point range with 20 offensive rebounds that led to 19 second-chance points. Utah (14-6, 3-5) kept it close before wearing down in the closing minutes, unable to keep the athletic Wildcats off the glass or from scoring inside to remain winless on the road. NO. 13 MASSACHUSETTS 90, FORDHAM 52 In Amherst, Mass., Chaz Williams had 18 points and eight assists, and Massachusetts rebounded from a loss earlier this week. Raphiael Putney and Trey Davis both had 13 points, and Maxie Esho had 10 points and six rebounds for the Minutemen (17-2, 4-1 Atlantic-10), who lost at Richmond on Wednesday. Chris Whitehead led the Rams (8-11, 1-5) with 13 points. It was Fordham’s seventh loss in eight games coming off a win against George Mason. Fordham guard Jon Severe, who leads all Division I freshmen in scoring at 20.9 points per game, was held to seven points.

UMass combined a swarming fullcourt press with tough halfcourt man-to-man defense to take its largest lead of the season, 40-24 at halftime. The Minutemen scored the first 17 points of the second half. NO. 15 CINCINNATI 80, TEMPLE 76 In Philadelphia, Sean Kilpatrick scored a season-high 29 points, and Cincinnati staved off a Temple comeback to remain undefeated in the American Athletic Conference. After the Bearcats (19-2, 8-0 AAC) had blown all of a 19-point lead and were tied at 76, Kilpatrick hit the game-winning free throws with 7.2 seconds to play. Temple attempted to tie the game again, but Josh Brown’s layup was blocked by Jermaine Sanders with a half-second to play. Kevin Johnson added two more free throws for the Bearcats, who had their nation-best streak of holding 27 consecutive opponents under 70 points ended. Dalton Pepper had a career-high 33 points, including the 3 that tied the game at 76 with 36.9 seconds left, for the Owls (5-13, 0-7), who have lost eight straight. NO. 23 MEMPHIS 80, SOUTH FLORIDA 58 In Memphis, Tenn., Chris Crawford scored 15 points and converted five of Memphis’ season-high 10 3-pointers. The Tigers, next-to-last in the American Athletic Conference in 3-point shooting (30 percent), finished 10 of 22 from outside the arc. Crawford was 5 of 10. Joe Jackson added 14 points and seven assists for Memphis (15-4, 5-2 AAC), while Shaq Goodwin finished with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Nick King had 10 points as Memphis won its third straight and fifth of six.

Economic boom or bust?

Experts say financial impact of game could be far below expectations By Meghan Barr

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Will the snowy New York City area really reap an estimated $600 million economic boost from the Super Bowl? Probably not. Despite such lofty predictions, sports economists say the financial impact of the Super Bowl could be fall far below expectations, in part because visitors often spend their cash at NFL-sponsored or corporate events rather than at tourist attractions. Some hotels say Super Bowl bookings are running behind what they hoped for, prompting them to ease demands for minimum stays and room deposits. And academic studies show that at best, past Super Bowls generated tens of millions, not hundreds of millions. “Move the decimal point one place to the left,” said Robert Baade, a professor at Lake Forest College in Illinois, who has studied the Super Bowl’s impact on local economies. “The NFL says $500 or $600 million? I think $50 to $60 million would be a generous appraisal of what the Super Bowl generates.” The NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee, which has worked closely with the NFL to prepare for the Feb. 2 game, has claimed in the yearslong run-up that it would generate $500 to $600 million for the region, but it refused to provide any information on how it tabulated that estimate. An NFL spokesman said the league does not conduct economic impact studies on the Super Bowl. A study Baade conducted in 2000 showed that the average Super Bowl from the 1970s through the late ’90s only

accounted for about $32 million each in increased economic activity at the most. The study, which examined tax revenue and other economic factors before and after the Super Bowl, concluded that the 1999 Super Bowl in Miami, for example, only contributed about $37 million to the South Florida economy. The NFL, by comparison, claimed that 1999 game between the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons generated $396 million, the study said. County sales tax data in Jacksonville showed hardly any increase in 2005 when it hosted the Super Bowl compared to nonSuper Bowl years, according to a study conducted by Philip Porter, an economics professor at the University of South Florida. “No one’s ever been able to find a footprint that an event occurred,” he said. Porter found that visitors spend money at NFL-funded events and buy NFL-branded memorabilia during Super Bowl week instead of frequenting local establishments. Die-hard Denver or Seattle fans won’t necessarily attend a Broadway show or visit the Statue of Liberty during their stay, as tourist attractions often report lower attendance than usual during major sporting events. They’re more likely to visit Super Bowl Boulevard in Times Square, which is filled with NFL-sponsored activities that funnel money directly back to the league. Economic impact studies commissioned by past Super Bowl host committees — based largely on spending surveys distributed among fans at the game — claimed that the 2008 Super Bowl in Glendale, Ariz., generated a record $500 million and the 2006 game in Detroit brought in about $274 million. But those studies, which aren’t made publicly available, are widely disputed by economists. “Here’s how the NFL gets the huge numbers that they get. They ask the people, ‘How much are you spending while you’re

here?’ ” Porter said. “They ought to be asking: ‘How much did we sell you while you were here?’” The Super Bowl is a weeklong business bonanza for people who work in marketing, advertising, product development and sales, said Robert Boland, a professor of sports management at New York University. “The Super Bowl has a life of its own as a trade show apart from a football game,” Boland said. “It’s about 10 days of celebration, trade show and tourist event, and then it’s a game. And not necessarily the same people attend both.” Experts note that the pregame madness may also deter tourists or business travelers who might ordinarily plan a visit to the host city. In New York, some hotels realized by mid-autumn that the expected surge in bookings had not materialized, so they began to scale back, in some cases reducing required minimum stays from four nights to two and ending demands for nonrefundable room deposits. Rates for the week leading up to the game, which had been at a premium, were dropped back to normal pricing. Kate Martin, general manager of the Hotel Chandler in midtown Manhattan, said the hotel was only 50 percent booked during Super Bowl weekend, with fewer than usual bookings lined up for the week preceding the game. “All of the anticipation and the hype about what this was going to bring for hotels in New York City has not materialized,” she said. Part of the problem lies in the tri-state area’s large hotel room inventory, which at 150,000 rooms is at least triple the inventory seen in the past 10 Super Bowl host cities, said Adam Jones, a director at consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. That leaves more lodging options for visitors and makes it harder for hotels to jack up rates.

Chilly: Broncos want to embrace the cold Continued from Page B-1 of the hype that surrounds it, it’s definitely real. “But, that distraction is something that we have to try and eliminate. It’s going to be difficult. But in order for us execute as well as we want to, we have to eliminate that distraction.” Not one Seahawks player has been this far, giving Denver something of an edge in experience. The Broncos have four: receiver Wes Welker, tight end Jacob Tamme, cornerback Dominique RodgersCromartie and a quarterback named Peyton. Manning, of course, is the only current Bronco to have won a ring, with Indianapolis in 2007. He also lost the Super Bowl in 2010 with the Colts. “The Super Bowl is a big deal,” he said. “I know how hard it is to get here. I know the sacrifice the team made.” That they will sacrifice the comfort of playing in a dome, or in a warm climate, in this Super Bowl doesn’t seem to be fazing

them a bit. Instead, the Broncos want to embrace the cold, the winds, the snow — and everything else that comes along this week in the first Super Bowl ever played outdoors in a cold-weather city. “We’d love to play in 70-degree weather,” said Denver 15-year veteran cornerback Champ Bailey, who has reached his first title game. “But if you tell me it’s 20 degrees and I am playing in the Super Bowl, I’m going to take it.” Welker, who lost both of his trips to the Super Bowl with the Patriots before joining the Broncos this season as a free agent, fully understands the issues that can arise this week. He and Manning, in particular, have counseled teammates on those pitfalls. “It’s knowing what to expect, trying to get rid of all the nonsense that goes with the Super Bowl,” Welker said. The Seahawks certainly didn’t find their send-off in Seattle to be nonsensical, even if it got a little “extraordinary,” as Carroll dubbed it.

“At the airport, what usually takes us about one minute to get through took 20 minutes,” defensive end Cliff Avril said about the “thousands and thousands” of fans lining the bus route. “They were pretty close and we were hitting the windows inside. It was a blast.” That’s a lot of 12th Men saluting their team. “The 12s were out there in full force,” Carroll said. “The bus could go 2 miles per hour because they kind of scurried into the streets. They were not just waving, but jumping up and down and going crazy. It was kind of collegiate-like.” On Monday, with the long travel out of the way and the introductory news conferences behind them, each team gets down to the main strokes. They can’t wait. “I don’t believe in such a thing called distractions,” Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard said. “This is the moment we have got to be in. It’s what you wanted your whole life.”


If the glove fits, Manning will wear it The Associated Press

Chances are Peyton Manning will be like most of the fans in the stands at MetLife Stadium and will wear gloves at the Super Bowl. That shouldn’t be a cause for concern for Denver Broncos fans. He actually plays better with the sticky-feeling orange-andgray glove on his right hand than he does barehanded. Manning never wore a glove in Indianapolis, but in his two years in Denver, he’s worn one on either his throwing hand or on both hands 13 times. He has a passer rating of 111.9 in those games. Barehanded, his QB rating is 108.7. It’s not just a cold-weather option, as many people think, either. The glove is actually a concession to the altered feel of his grip after spinal fusion surgery in 2011 affected the nerve that travels into his right triceps. He’s worn the glove the last four games, when the temperatures at kickoff have been 58 at Houston, 70 at Oakland, 41 at home against San Diego and 63 last Sunday in Denver against New England. “I’ve experimented with them throughout my career, even when I was in Indy,” Manning said earlier this season. “I never just quite found a pair that I liked, so I finally found a pair that I liked.” Broncos equipment manager Chris Valenti and his assistant, Mike Harrington, “researched and gave me some options,” Manning said. “Found a pair that I liked.” Manning has thrown for 33 TDs and five interceptions, including the playoffs, with the glove on his throwing hand in 10 games this season. The Broncos went 8-2 in those games, when he averaged 27 completions in 41 throws for 332 yards. Back to the Meadowlands: When they made the trip to the East Coast in December, the last thing anyone in the Seahawks’ locker room wanted to talk about was them

playing a late-season game at the site of the Super Bowl. Once they knocked off San Francisco to win the NFC title, coach Pete Carroll and his players were willing to admit there is some advantage to being familiar with the surroundings they are about to enter. “I always like using those illustrations on where we have been there before and we’ve done that. We just try to hold back on that at the time, thinking it was too presumptuous, but we’re fortunate now,” Carroll said. “We’ll be in the same hotel, we’ve been in that locker room, we’ve played well at that stadium, so hopefully we’ll utilize that some. It’s just about being comfortable.” Seattle will use the same hotel for its trip to play the Giants on Dec. 15. This also will be the Seahawks’ third time playing at MetLife Stadium in the past three seasons. But it’s beyond just knowing the stadium and the team hotel that has helped prepare some of Seattle’s players for the Super Bowl. Russell Wilson purposely went to last year’s big game in New Orleans, with studying a priority. He wanted to see all of the hoopla. “I watched the whole game and watched the pregame and all that last year at the Super Bowl and I really wanted to get a feel for it,” Wilson said. “Just in case we were here and I believed that we would be, and sure enough, we are.” Military men: Fans of the Broncos and Seahawks are winners, too. Their fans’ military appreciation efforts won rewards for their local military communities from USAA, an official NFL sponsor. Both Denver and Seattle were among five NFL teams to earn those rewards as part of USAA’s “Million Fan Salute,” a season-long military appreciation program. Also earning rewards were fans of the Packers, Buccaneers and Vikings. Past rewards have included athletic field refurbishment, athletic equipment and support for fitness programs. No blackout guaranteed: The NFL can’t be 100 percent certain there won’t be a repeat of the blackout that disrupted last

year’s Super Bowl in New Orleans. But such a 34-minute interruption, or anything like it, could be totally avoided in the future with LED lighting. A company named Ephesus Lighting has designed the first such lighting for outdoor stadiums; the lights already are used in a dozen indoor arenas in North America, including War Memorial Arena in Syracuse, N.Y. The home of the AHL’s Syracuse Crunch became the first sports arena in the United States to be lit by LED lighting. War Memorial Arena experienced an 87 percent decrease in energy costs during the last year by using those lights. And light levels at the venue increased from an average of 105 foot-candles to 217 foot-candles. “Everyone learned the shortcomings of the antiquated metal halide lighting at the Super Bowl last year,” says Mike Lorenz, COO of Ephesus Lighting. “The electrical problems at the Superdome were resolved quickly, but it took more than 20 minutes for the lights to warm up and be turned back on. Had the Superdome been equipped with our LED lights, they would have been back on with the flick of a switch.” With LED lighting becoming more common at hockey and basketball arenas, Lorenz says Ephesus has “set our sights on NFL, college football and MLB stadiums. Super menu: Looking for some food with a Super Bowl, uh, flavor? Foley’s NY Pub and Restaurant might have what you want. Perhaps Peyton’s Pork Po’Boy. Or Richard Sherman’s Big Mouth Burger. Maybe Marshawn Lynch’s Beastly Bangers & Mash, or Wes Welker’s Wings. “We always like to put a fun twist on our big game menus,” says Shaun Clancy, owner of the Manhattan restaurant. “With so many fans in town to support their respective cities, we wanted to offer a selection that represents Denver and Seattle. The rule at Foley’s is to root for your team, not against the other guy’s team.”

Steals: New draft format used Continued from Page B-1 turnovers — including six interceptions — and nine sacks. “It was definitely sloppy. There was a lot of turnovers because of the weather,” said Houston defensive end J.J. Watt, who was a captain on Sanders’ team. “There was a lot of rain, so obviously that factored into it.” The game was played in consistent rain, but little wind and warm temperatures in the high 70s. Foles was the only quarterback of six in the game to not throw an interception. He was named offensive MVP, finishing with seven completions for 89 yards. Philadelphia wide receiver DeSean Jackson and Carolina quarterback Cam Newton also had touchdowns for Team Sanders. New Orleans tight end Jimmy Graham and Cleveland wide receiver Josh Gordon caught touchdowns for Team Rice. Gordon led Team Rice with six catches for 66 yards, while Washington running back Alfred Morris had four catches for 69 yards. The Pro Bowlers were split up by the NFL greats in a new draft format meant to improve the game. The picks made earlier in the week created matchups that pitted usual teammates against each other and challenged Rice and Sanders to compare the all-stars against one another. That led to plenty of trash talk between Rice and Sanders and some bruised egos among players used to being on top of their sport. The result Sunday was a game that appeared more competitive than in years past, with some big hits — even between teammates — and fewer shenanigans. “It was crazy, but we had fun with it,” Gordon said. “I loved it and enjoyed it.” Gordon was flipped by teammate T.J. Ward on one of the biggest hits in the game. “I don’t think he knew what he was doing but I’ll give him the benefit of a doubt on that one,” Gordon said. “I’ll get him back in Cleveland.” Jackson caught the game’s first touchdown pass from Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck. Luck threw the ball 36 yards into double coverage in the end zone on a flea flicker, where Jackson wrestled it away from Titans cornerback Alterraun Verner. Graham caught an 8-yard fade in the second quarter from teammate Drew Brees, turning around Brees’ slow start. Graham dunked the ball over the crossbar in celebration, but San Diego safety Eric Weddle jokingly defended the attempt. Newton scored on 1-yard run up the middle for a touchdown, making up for an earlier interception on a ball Cleveland cornerback Joe Haden wrestled away from Jackson. Kansas City linebacker Derrick Johnson — who had a big hit in the first half on Chiefs teammate Jamaal Charles — was selected as the game’s defensive MVP for Team Rice. “I didn’t expect it, but he’s out there doing his thing,” said Charles, who was knocked out of Kansas City’s playoff loss to Indianapolis with a concussion. “I can’t get mad at him — it’s just about football and you’ve just got to be ready.” “If you stand back, he’s going to make you look pretty bad, so I had to go out and really give it to him,” Johnson said. “I would never try to hurt my teammate at all, but compete a little bit.” Johnson had nine tackles, including eight solo tackles. Carolina linebacker Luke Kuechly had 12 tackles, including 11 solo tackles.

Upsets: Federer lauds Wawrinka Continued from Page B-1 and to take a positive from a loss, from failing from a tournament,” he said. “So that’s how I see, in general, my career. I always go back to practice to try to improve myself and to give me all the chance to beat the best player in the world.” After being the first man in 21 years to beat the top two players en route to a major title — he beat Djokovic in the quarterfinals to avenge two five-set defeats to the Serbian in Grand Slams last year — Wawrinka will move from No. 8 to No. 3 in the rankings. That’s a projected five spots in front Federer, a 17-time Grand Slam champion. Not surprisingly, Federer was the first to call to congratulate Wawrinka, after the new champion spoke on the phone with his own family back in Switzerland. “I didn’t call so many [people], but my wife, my daughter, my sister, and Roger called me,” said Wawrinka, still clutching the trophy at a news conference more than two hours later. “So, yeah, was nice for me. I know that he’s really, really happy for me.” Federer had wanted an all-Swiss final but lost to Nadal in the semifinals — his 23rd loss in 33 matches against the Spaniard. Considering Wawrinka had only ever beaten Federer once, nobody really gave him a chance of stopping Nadal from becoming the first man to win each of the four major trophies twice in the Open era. Nadal appeared to be on the verge of retiring in the second set, when he took a medical time out that frustrated Wawrinka. His service speed dropped dramatically, he wasn’t retrieving as well as usual, and he was sweating on mistakes from the other side to pick up cheap points. “It’s really not the way you want to win a tennis match, but in a Grand Slam final, I’ll take it,” Warwinka said. Nadal has had cursed luck with injuries in Australia. He won the title here in 2009 and lost the 2012 final to Djokovic. But he missed the 2013 edition during a sevenmonth layoff with knee injuries and illness, and his quarterfinal losses in 2010 and 2011 were affected by injuries. “It has been a very emotional two weeks — I’m sorry to finish this way,” he told the Rod Laver Arena crowd, at the same time commending Wawrinka for the way he played. “I tried very, very hard — this year was one of the more emotional tournaments in my career. “Last thing that I wanted to do was retire. I hate to do that, especially in a final.” Wawrinka recalled an agonizing loss of his own here — going down in the fourth round to Djokovic last year in the longest Grand Slam match of the season — as motivation for his surge up the rankings last year, achieved with the help of former No. 2-ranked Magnus Norman as coach. “Rafa, I’m really sorry for you, I hope your back is going to be fine, you’re a really great guy, good friend and really amazing champion,” Wawrinka said as he accepted his first major trophy. “Last year, I had a crazy match, I lost it. I was crying a lot after the match. But in one year, a lot happened — I still don’t know if I’m dreaming or not, but we’ll see tomorrow morning.” When asked how he would celebrate, he said later: “There’s a big chance I get drunk tonight, but we’ll see.”

Happy birthday, Mac 30 years after being introduced, computer’s influence enormous By Anick Jesdanun The Associated Press

NEW YORK ook around. Many of the gadgets you see drew inspiration from the original Mac computer. Computers at the time typically required people to type in commands. Once the Mac came out 30 years ago, people could instead navigate with a graphical user interface. Available options were organized into menus. People clicked icons to run programs and dragged and dropped files to move them. The Mac introduced real-world metaphors such as using a trash can to delete files. It brought us fonts and other tools once limited to professional printers. Most importantly, it made computing and publishing easy enough for everyday people to learn and use. Apple sparked a revolution in computing with the Mac. In turn, that sparked a revolution in publishing as people began creating fancy newsletters, brochures and other publications from their desktops. These concepts are so fundamental today that it’s hard to imagine a time when they existed only in research labs — primarily Xerox’s Palo Alto Research Center in California. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs and his team got much of its inspiration from PARC, which they visited while designing the Mac. The Mac has had “incredible influence on pretty much everybody’s lives all over the world since computers are now so ubiquitous.” says Brad Myers, a professor at Carnegie Mellon University’s Human-Computer Interaction Institute. “Pretty much all consumer electronics are adopting all of the same kinds of interactions.” Apple didn’t invent these tools, nor was the Mac the first to use them. Xerox Corp. sold its own mouse-based Star computer, and Apple’s Lisa beat the Mac by months. It’s impossible to say what would have happened if those machines hadn’t flopped with consumers or whether others would have come along if the Mac hadn’t. But the Mac prevailed and thus influenced generations of gadgets that followed. The Mac owes much of its success to the way Apple engineers adapted those pioneering concepts. For instance, Xerox Corp. used a three-button mouse in its Alto prototype computer. Apple settled on one, allowing people to keep their eyes on the screen without worrying about which button to press. While Lisa had those improvements first, it cost about $10,000. The Mac was a “low” $2,495 when it came out Jan. 24, 1984. Apple insisted on uniformity, so copying and pasting text and deleting files would work the same from one application to another. That reduced the time it would take to learn a new program. And Apple put a premium on design. Early Macs showed a happy face when they started up. Icons and windows had rounded corners. Such details made computers appear friendlier and easier to use. One of the first applications enabled by the Mac’s interface was desktop publishing. Early computers generated text the way a typewriter would — character by character, one line at a time. Users had a limited number of characters, with no variation in appearance. The Mac was one of the first to approach displays like a TV: Text gets incor-


Apple CEO Steve Jobs, left and President John Sculley present the new Macintosh desktop computer in January 1984 at a shareholder meeting in Cupertino, Calif. Jan. 24, 2014, marked 30 years after the first Mac was introduced, sparking a revolution in computing and in publishing.

porated into a graphic that the computer projects on the screen pixel by pixel. With those tools, would-be publishers could change fonts, adjust typeface sizes and add attributes such as italics. They could also mix images with text. The earliest Macs popularized “what you see is what you get,” or WYSIWYG; formatting on the screen largely reflected how the page would look in print. Instead of going to a professional printer, anyone could simply design and print newsletters on a Mac. Of course, the Mac’s success was never guaranteed. Initially, many people “thought it was a waste of time and a gimmick,” says Dag Spicer, senior curator of the Computer History Museum in Silicon Valley. He says longtime computer users already knew how to perform computing tasks “very efficiently with just two or three keystrokes. It might have been more efficient for them than to use a mouse.” The Mac didn’t run software for the company’s Apple II computer, so there was little people could do with it until Aldus — now part of Adobe — released PageMaker publishing software in 1985. The original Mac had little memory and a small screen, and it lacked a hard drive. Although the Mac’s processor was fast for its time, much of that power went to the graphical interface instead of tasks common for research and commerce. With the Mac came “the dawn of the notion of we can waste computing power to make it easier for people,” says Jim Morris, who worked on the Xerox Alto before joining Carnegie Mellon by the time the Mac came out. “The Macintosh was not a business machine.” Tim Bajarin, a Creative Strategies analyst who has followed Apple for more than three decades, says he was baffled, yet intrigued

when he saw the Mac’s unveiling at an Apple shareholders meeting in 1984. “This really was a complete departure from the computing that we knew,” he says. “None of us had any clue what its potential would be.” In fact, despite its radical interface, sales were lukewarm. For years, it was mostly a niche product for publishers, educators and graphics artists. Corporate users stuck with IBM Corp. and its various clones, especially as Microsoft’s Windows operating system grew to look like Mac’s software. (There were years of lawsuits, capped by a settlement.) Now the world’s most valuable company, Apple Inc. nearly died in the 1990s as its market share dwindled. After a 12-year exile, Jobs returned in 1997 to rescue the company. A year later, he introduced the iMac, a desktop computer with shapes and colors that departed from beige Windows boxes at the time. Then came the iPod music player in 2001, the iPhone in 2007 and the iPad tablet in 2010. They weren’t Macs, but shared the Mac’s knack for ease of use. Elements such as tapping on icons to open apps have roots in the Mac. The popularity of these devices drove many Windows users to buy Macs. In recent years, PCs have declined as consumers turn to mobile devices. Apple sold 16 million Macs in the fiscal year ending Sept. 28, down 10 percent from a year earlier. By contrast, iPhone sales grew 20 percent to 150 million and iPads by 22 percent to 71 million. The Mac has aged to the point that it’s starting to draw inspiration from iPhones and iPads. Several Mac apps have been refined to look and work more like mobile versions. Macs now have notifications and other features born on mobile devices. Windows computers, meanwhile, now emphasize tablets’ touch-base interfaces.

SAN FRANCISCO — Bitstrips might seem like a sudden sensation now that the application maker’s comic vignettes are all over Facebook and other social networks. But the Toronto startup’s success was a drawn-out process. The concept for a mobile application that lets people turn their lives into comic strips took shape as a high school diversion more than 20 years ago. That’s when Jacob Blackstock drew a profane spoof of Charlie Brown and Lucy Van Pelt from the Peanuts comic strip and passed it to Shahan Panth, who sat behind him in 12th-grade English class. Even though a teacher reprimanded them for boorish behavior, a snickering Panth encouraged Blackstock to continue expressing his irreverent take on life through comics. The two friends remained in touch after high school, often relying on comics as a way to communicate and needle each other. When Panth landed his first job out of college at an insurance company, Blackstock made it a point to fax a crude comic featuring his friend each day. “I can’t even repeat some of the things that he would say in those comics, but it was as about bad as you can possibly imagine,” Panth says. Goofing off eventually turned into a business. In 2007, Blackstock and Panth decided to start Bitstrips in an attempt to create a comic-strip version of YouTube. Bitstrips remained a novelty service confined to customizing comics within Web browsers until October when the company released a mobile application for iPhones, iPads and devices running on Android software. But Blackstock, 38, and Panth, 39, are getting the last laugh as their once-quirky pastime turns into a worldwide phenomenon. More than 30 million people in 90 countries have turned themselves into comic-book characters on Bitstrips’ mobile applications. Google, which tracks people’s interests through its widely used search engine, rated Bitstrips as the trendiest app of 2013, eclipsing the likes of Twitter’s Vine video app, Facebook’s Instagram photo app,’s Candy Crush game and SnapChat’s ephemeral messaging app. “A ridiculous amount of people have been loving Bitstrips so much that many of them are sharing their comics to the point that it can be overwhelming to those that aren’t into it,” said Blackstock, who is Bitstrips’ CEO and creative director. With hopes of preventing a backlash to its application, Bitstrips recently added options that allow users to share their comics with a limited group of people instead of broadcasting through their Facebook networks or other digital hangouts. Bitstrips’ free mobile apps triggered the craze by making it easy for anyone with a smartphone or tablet computer to quickly create and post comics featuring themselves and a friend depicted in different scenarios. The apps provide thousands of comic scenes to choose from, then allows each user to create their own captions. The overwhelming response surprised Blackstock and Panth, who had to scramble to increase Bitstrips’ computing capacity to keep with the intense demand. They now have a staff of 17 workers and have raised $3 million from Horizons Ventures in Hong Kong. The seed money will help keep the service running until Blackstock and Panth figure out how to generate revenue from Bitstrips’ rapidly growing audience. One possibility: The company could charge users for extra Bitstrips features that would allow them to do things like insert themselves into comics that also feature characters from their favorite TV show or movie. Blackstock, who is nicknamed “BA” in reference to a sound he made as a child, thinks Bitstrips will prove his ideas weren’t quite as goofy as they seemed when his high school English teacher caught him drawing cheeky comics a couple decades ago. “We don’t see this as a joke engine,” Blackstock says. “We see this as a new medium for self-expression.”

p p eral Reevaluation Report / Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement on a proposed flood risk management project along the Rio Grande from San Acacia downstream to San Marcial in Socorro County, New Mexico. The recommended plan is to replace the existing 43-mile embankment between the Low Flow Conveyance Channel and the Rio Grande with a structurally competent levee capable of containing highvolume, longduration flows. This engineered levee would substantially reduce the risk of damage from floods emanating from the Rio Grande. The local cost-sharing sponsors of the proposed project are the Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District and the New Mexico Interstate Stream Commission. The 30-day review period begins on January 24, 2014, or on the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, if different. A Record of Decision on the proposed action would be issued after the review period has ended. The final document is electronically available at: Environmental/Enviro nmentalComplianceD ocuments/Environme ntalImpactStatement sROD.aspx. Paper copies are available for review at the Socorro Public Library, 401 Park St, Socorro, NM. For further information, requests for copies, and/or questions about the project, please contact Mr. Jerry Nieto, Project Manager, by telephone: (505) 342 3362, by mail: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, 4101 Jefferson Plaza NE, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87109, or by email: Jerry.D.Nieto@usace.

Brother interferes in couple’s marriage Dear Annie: A year ago, I found out that my husband had been cheating on me at his brother’s house. He was having an affair with “Charlie’s” wife’s sister. My husband cheated more than 30 years ago with a friend of Charlie’s, and we divorced over it. We got back together two years later. I have forgiven my husband for his most recent affair, and we renewed our wedding vows six months ago, but I cannot forgive his brother. Over the years, Charlie has tried his best to split us up. I no longer allow my husband to visit Charlie unless I am with him. Dealing with this relationship causes me severe headaches, and I’ve lost 50 pounds. My doctor says the stress is killing me. I know Charlie will continue trying to break up my marriage. What should I do to stop this nightmare? — Brokenhearted in Indiana Dear Brokenhearted: Charlie may have encouraged the cheating, but your husband had to cooperate. This is now your husband’s responsibility. He needs to tell his brother to knock it off, that he isn’t interested in having an affair, and that if Charlie tries to break up his marriage, the relationship is over. Charlie has to understand that there are consequences to interfering in your lives, but his brother is the one who must make it stick. Dear Annie: We have a friend who asks for help almost every day with repairs, assistance with his computer, a ride (he never offers to pay for gas) and on and on. This man is 75 years old, doesn’t do much, lives alone and probably needs the companionship. My husband is a kind man and would never say no. Please advise people to have some consideration for their neighbors and do things for themselves so they don’t intrude. My husband and I enjoy our time together, and too often, this “friend” stops by needing something. — No Private Time Dear Private: The man is 75 and lives alone. Perhaps he is not

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH You have been more direct and far more feisty than usual. Notice how heated someone else becomes when he or she interacts with you. Tonight: Mosey on home. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH Be aware of your finances. You could be swallowing some anger and choose to deal with it by spending money. Tonight: Catch up on a friend’s news. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH If you feel pushed, you might be more than happy to go along with a change of pace. You might want to lighten up the moment. Tonight: Your treat. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Understand what is going on around you. Listen to your inner voice when dealing with a boss. Tonight: Whatever appeals to you the most. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Focus on friends and your objectives. You will see that your inner circle supports your long-term desires. Tonight: Not to be found. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH Responsibilities drop on you, whether you like it or not. Let a friend or loved one help you. Tonight: Find your friends. You simply will not be happy alone.

Today in history Today is Monday, Jan. 27, the 27th day of 2014. There are 338 days left in the year. Today’s highlight in history: On Jan. 27, 1944, during World War II, the Soviet Union announced the complete end of the deadly German siege of Leningrad, which had lasted for more than two years.

Hocus Focus

capable of doing for himself those things he asks of you. And he seems lonely. We know that stopping by too often is a nuisance, but we’re going to ask you to think about this differently. Welcome him as an act of kindness, instead of resenting the time he takes from you. Introduce him to others in your neighborhood so they, too, can keep him company. Set a few boundaries: It’s OK to tell him you are busy when he drops in unexpectedly, and to ask him to fill the tank once in a while, provided he can afford it. Schedule one day a week for him, letting him know you are available only on that day. If you and your husband stick to that schedule, he will eventually adapt, and you will feel less resentful. Dear Annie: I had to write after reading the letter from “Joining the Letting Go Club,” whose adult children have cut them out of their lives. I worked in a long-term care facility for 10 years. I’ve seen adult children drive up to the door, unload the parent and take off — forever. I saw an adult son berate his mother until she signed a power of attorney. He then pillaged all of her assets and refused to spend any money on her care or provide documentation so she could qualify for Medicaid. One Christmas, a son and daughter-in-law came for their annual visit and brought gifts, but took them home because Mom was asleep. They said she wouldn’t know the difference. Usually the parental rejection involves money. Sometimes, the kids know they are not in the will, or the parents refused to appoint one of them power of attorney. Sometimes, the parents have gifted their children so much that they have nothing left. Your advice to this couple was solid. Enjoy each other and fill it with people who expect nothing in return except friendship. — Know in New York
