The Santa Fe Police Department arrested a 20-year-old man Thursday morning who recently made headlines after a woman took cellphone video of him when she thought he was trying to break into her home through a window.

This time, police caught Dariush Esfandi as he was reportedly leaving a home in the 3000 block of Calle Caballero through a broken back window. The arrest is the fourth for Esfandi, 1071 Highland Way, within the past year. In the recent arrest, officers charged him

Panel may cut cash for gov.’s reforms from education bill Revised plan gives individual schools more control on how to spend money By Patrick Malone The New Mexican

Lawmakers urged the Navajo Nation to agree to limit its gambling operations to three existing casinos during Friday hearings at the state Capitol. The Legislative Committee on Compacts voted to send a proposed agreement back to the tribe and governor for further negotiations. The deal would have allowed the tribe to operate five Las Vegas-style casinos on its reservation. The Navajo Nation was represented by delegate LoRenzo Bates, left, and President Ben Shelly.

Former aide says Christie lied about bridge-lane closure Accuser offers little details, no evidence to back up charges By Robert Costa and David A. Fahrenthold

The Washington Post

One of the key players in a scandal surrounding Chris Christie accused the New Jersey governor on Friday of lying about his role. David Wildstein, a former Christie appointee who presided over the George Washington Bridge lane closures at the center of the controversy, said through a letter from his attorney that “evidence exists … tying Mr. Christie to having knowledge of the lane closures, during the period when the lanes were closed, contrary to what the Governor stated publicly.” Christie’s office denied the accusation. Wildstein is the first Christie ally to publicly question the governor’s account, and his claim could further damage Christie as he tries to restore his image amid aggressive investigations by

Democratic lawmakers and a federal prosecutor. Also Friday, Bill Stepien, a longtime political adviser to Christie, said he would refuse to testify before the state legislative committee investigating the episode — raising the possibility that more damaging information could emerge. Wildstein, who attended the same high school as Christie, was appointed by Christie to a position at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. In September, Wildstein and another of Christie’s top appointees at the Port Authority ordered the lane closures, causing four days of gridlock in Fort Lee, N.J., apparently as retribution against the town’s mayor for not endorsing Christie for reelection. Wildstein resigned in December. “Mr. Wildstein contests the accuracy of various statements that the Governor made about him and he could prove the accuracy of some,” wrote his attorney, Alan Zegas.

The House Appropriations and Finance Committee is considering an education spending bill that strips funding for many of Gov. Susana Martinez’s signature public school reforms. The committee this week proposed several changes to House Bill 3, introduced by Rep. Mimi Stewart, D-Albuquerque, chairwoman of the House Education Committee. It shifts more control over spending choices from the Martinez administration to individual school districts, including proposed pay hikes for teachers. The committee is expected to vote on the roughly $2.7 billion bill Monday. It will give districts power over about $148 million in increased spending from the general fund. Martinez, as well as many state lawmakers, have emphasized education as a priority in this 30-day session. For instance, the governor wants to earmark $12 million to reward up to 2,000 teachers and principals rated “highly effective” or “exemplary.” But the revised bill gives districts money to allocate the raises as they see fit. “Merit pay should be controlled by the school districts,”

Study paves way for Keystone XL pipeline By Matthew Daly

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The long-delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline cleared a major hurdle toward approval Friday, a serious blow to environmentalists’ hopes that President Barack Obama will block the controversial project running more than 1,000 miles from Canada through the heart of the U.S. The State Department reported no major environmental objections to the proposed $7 billion pipeline, which has become a symbol of the political debate over climate change. Republicans and some oil- and gas-producing states in the U.S. — as well as Canada’s minister of natural resources — cheered the report, but it further rankled environmentalists already at odds with Obama and his energy policy.

The report stops short of recommending approval of the pipeline, but the review gives Obama new support if he chooses to endorse it in spite of opposition from many Democrats and environmental groups. Foes say the pipeline would carry “dirty oil” that contributes to global warming, and they also express concern about possible spills. Republicans and business and labor groups have urged Obama to approve the pipeline to create thousands of jobs and move further toward North American energy independence. The pipeline is also strongly supported by Democrats in oil and gas-producing states, including Sens. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Mark Begich of Alaska and Mark Pryor of Arkansas.

The figures were reported by the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The peace conference didn’t produce any tangible results, although connections made in Switzerland are likely to develop into prolonged negotiations to try to resolve the war.

Police find stolen John Paul II relic ROME — Police have recovered most of a piece of fabric stained by the blood of Pope John Paul II that was stolen from a church in central Italy. The fabric had been found in the garage of one of the three people detained for the theft. The relic went missing last week from the church in the Apennine mountains where John Paul liked to ski. It contained blood from when he was shot in 1981. John Paul, who died in 2005, will become a saint April 27.

Texas board tightens rules for textbook review panels By Will Weissert

The Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas he Texas Board of Education imposed tighter rules Friday on the citizen review panels that scrutinize proposed textbooks, potentially softening fights over evolution, religion’s role in U.S. history and other ideological matters that have long seeped into what students learn in school. Tension over the issue has been building for years in the country’s second most populous state, where the textbook market is so large that changes can affect the industry nationwide. Critics complain that a few activists with religious or political objections have too much power to shape what the state’s more than 5 million public school students are taught. The 15-member education board approves textbooks for school districts to use, but objections raised by reviewers can influence its decisions. The volunteer review panels are often dominated by social conservatives who want more skepticism about evolution included in science textbooks, arguing that a higher power helped create the universe. The board also had long been controlled by social conservatives before election defeats weakened their voting bloc in recent years — but not before its culture war clashes drew national headlines. Those members pushed for deemphasizing climate change in science classes, and requiring social studies students to learn about the Chris-

tian values of America’s founding fathers and evaluate whether the United Nations undermined U.S. sovereignty. Among the changes approved Friday was a mandate that teachers or professors be given priority for serving on the textbook review panels for subjects in their areas of expertise. They also enable the board to appoint outside experts to check objections raised by review panels and ensure they are based on fact, not ideology. “It won’t eliminate politics, but it will make it where it’s a more informed process,” said Thomas Ratliff, a Republican board member who pushed for the changes, which he said “force us to find qualified people, leave them alone, and let them do their jobs.” The new rules were unanimously approved. An outspoken conservative on the board, David Bradley, said he did his best to insert language mitigating what was approved. But he said “liberals are really trying to make it difficult for Christians and conservatives to have a voice in public education.” “Certainly there are some members that were unhappy with some of the experts that we’ve had in the past and certain reviewers,” said Bradley, a Republican from Beaumont. “Maybe it’s embarrassing when citizens step forth and show some of the blatant inaccuracies in our American history, references to our founding fathers, our Christian heritage, truly errors. But to try and silence them with intimidation, I

think, is wrong and that’s what this is all about,” he said. Other changes require proposed books to be reviewed by at least two panel members, so that a single volunteer can’t raise objections. The new rules also require panelists to submit majority and minority reports about proposed material, and restrict board members’ contact with reviewers to avoid unfair influence. A more ambitious plan that would have allowed the education board to remove panelists for inappropriate behavior failed 9-6 earlier in the week. Friday’s changes will take effect before the board tackles the potentially thorny adoption of new social studies textbooks later this year. The board can force publishers to edit the content of textbooks for such classes, sometimes based on review panel suggestions, because Texas has such a large market for the books, and those revisions can make it into textbooks sold around the country. The catalyst for revamping the citizen review panels came last summer, when ardent evolution skeptics — including a nutritionist and a chemical engineer — caused a tumultuous fight. They challenged a proposed biology textbook that they claimed contained too much information on natural selection, Charles Darwin’s theory on how life on earth evolved. Ratliff refused to predict whether they would help avoid the raucous board debates of the past. But he said the education board has come a long way.

WASHINGTON — Roman Polanski. Edward Snowden. Manuel Noriega. Over the years, the famous and the infamous have been caught up in the legal process called extradition, which governs whether one country will turn over fugitives from justice to another country. It may ultimately be the turn of Amanda Knox, whose murder conviction in the stabbing of her roommate has been reinstated by an Italian court, raising the specter of a long extradition fight. She says she’ll never willingly go back to Italy. The Knox case is special because it raises the question of whether the U.S. government would send one of its own citizens to a foreign country to face a long prison term. The answer: It’s been done before, though in less high-profile cases involving the governments of Canada, Mexico and other nations. The U.S. has extradition treaties with more than 100 countries, including Italy, providing what would appear to be a strong legal foundation in favor of a request for Knox’s return to Italy. “It’s absolutely not the case that an individual will not be extradited just because they are a U.S. citizen,” says Douglas McNabb, an international criminal defense attorney and an expert in international extradition law. Time is on the side of Knox’s lawyers. Proceedings could take up to a year to play out in the Italian courts. If Italy were to file a provisional arrest warrant after the Italian proceedings end, Knox’s lawyers could take the U.S. government through a judicial process in the courts and an administrative process at the State Department, which would make the decision. The U.S. has had an extradition treaty with Italy since 1984 and has denied at least several requests since then. Mary Fan, a former federal prosecutor, suggested that any decision by the State Department on whether to return Knox to Italy is “a matter of both law and politics.” From a U.S. standpoint, the case at first seems to raise questions about double jeopardy — being tried twice for the same offense, something that’s barred by the U.S. Constitution. Knox was first convicted, then acquitted, then, on Thursday, the initial conviction was reinstated. Some observers dismiss the double-jeopardy argument because Knox’s acquittal was not finalized by Italy’s highest court. On Thursday, Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., said she is “very concerned and disappointed by this verdict” in the Italian court. Knox is from Seattle.

KIEV, Ukraine — The bloody images of Ukrainian opposition supporter Dmytro Bulatov, who says he was abducted and tortured for more than a week, have fueled fears among anti-government activists that extrajudicial squads are being deployed to intimidate the protest movement. Bulatov, who was in charge of a vocal protest group before he disappeared Jan. 22, recounted a gruesome ordeal, saying his unidentified kidnappers beat him, sliced off part of his ear and nailed him to a door during his time in captivity. “There isn’t a spot on my body that hasn’t been beaten,” Bulatov, 35, said Friday in a short video from his hospital ward. “They crucified me by nailing me to a door with something and beat me strongly all the while.” The government has faced two months of major protests that started after President Victor Yanukovych backed out of an agreement to deepen ties with the European Union in favor of Russia.

Death penalty for bomb suspect may be difficult Poll: Boston residents favor life sentence, not execution, for Tsarnaev By Denise Lavoie

The Associated Press

BOSTON — Given the powerful grief and anger over the Boston Marathon bombing, Boston would seem to be a particularly hostile place for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to stand trial. But it might just be his best hope of escaping a death sentence. Opposition to the death penalty runs deep in liberal Massachusetts. In a Boston Globe survey in September, 57 percent of Massachusetts residents polled favored life in prison for Tsarnaev, while 33 percent favored execution. As Tsarnaev’s lawyers weigh whether to attempt to move his trial out of town, away from those most deeply traumatized by the bombing, some legal experts say staying put might be a better strategy, even though emotions in the city are raw. “I’d rather take my shot with the citizens of Massachusetts,” said Christopher Dearborn, a professor at Boston’s Suffolk Law School. “We’re at the

highest irony here: We’re going to have a death penalty trial in a state where a majority of our citizens don’t support the death penalty.” Federal prosecutors announced Thursday that they will seek the death penalty against Tsarnaev, 20, when he

goes on trial in the bombing last April that killed three people and injured more than 260 at the crowded finish line of the race. No trial date has been set. Massachusetts abolished its death penalty in 1984, and repeated attempts

to reinstate it have failed in the Legislature. But Tsarnaev is being prosecuted under federal law. If he is convicted, the jury will take part in a second phase of the trial to decide whether he should get life or death. The jury must be unanimous for a death sentence to be imposed. During jury selection, potential jurors will be asked about their views on capital punishment. To be selected, jurors must attest that they are willing to impose the death penalty if the evidence warrants it. Federal prosecutors have asked a jury for the death penalty in Massachusetts in two other cases. A veterans hospital nurse who killed four patients was spared by a federal jury in 2001 in the western Massachusetts city of Springfield. But a jury in Boston in 2003 voted for the death penalty for a drifter convicted in the carjack killings of two men. Attorney David Hoose, who represented the nurse, said Tsarnaev’s lawyers are likely to hire jury experts who conduct polls and do other research to determine if he can receive a fair trial in Boston federal court, which draws

Obama hints at immigration reform WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama’s new declaration that he’s open to legalizing many immigrants short of citizenship sounds a lot like House Speaker John Boehner and other GOP leaders, an election-year compromise that numerous Republicans as well as Democrats crave. But the drive for the first overhaul in three decades still faces major resistance from many Republicans who are wary that the divisive issue could derail what they see as a smooth glide path to winning November’s congressional elections. And they deeply distrust the Democratic president to enforce the law. Just hours after Boehner pitched immigration to the GOP at a Maryland retreat, Obama suddenly indicated he would be open to legal status for many of the 11 million living here illegally, dropping his onceironclad insistence on a special path to citizenship. Democrats, including Obama, and other immigration proponents have warned repeatedly about the creation of a two-tier class system. “If the speaker proposes something that says right away, folks aren’t being deported, families aren’t being separated, we’re able to attract top young students to provide the skills or start businesses here, and then there’s a regular process of citizenship, I’m not sure how wide the divide ends up being,” Obama said in a CNN interview that was recorded Thursday and aired Friday. Obama’s flexibility is an indication of the president’s desire to secure an elusive legislative achievement before voters decide whether to hand him more opposition in Congress. Republicans are expected to maintain their grip on the House and have a shot at grabbing the majority in the Senate. “I’m going to do everything I can in the coming months to see if we can get this over the finish line,” Obama said Friday of an immigration overhaul in a Google Plus Hangout talk. In an earlier compromise, Obama signaled late last year that he could accept the House’s piecemeal, bill-by-bill approach to immigration changes after months of backing a comprehensive, bipartisan Senate bill. Notably, he calibrated his comments on immigration in his State of the Union address this week. “I think he realizes that this is a very delicate issue, it’s very controversial and I think his recent statements have been very, very positive in allowing us to move forward,” Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Fla., a proponent of immigration overhaul, told reporters Friday. Boehner tried to sell his reluctant broader caucus on tackling immigration this year by casting it as critical to job creation, economic growth and national security. The speaker, along with Reps. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Jeff Denham, R-Calif., argued for action in a closed-door session with other House Republicans. Boehner rejected the idea of a

special path to citizenship. “If Democrats insist on that, then we are not going to get anywhere this year,” he said. But several Republicans questioned the strategy of pushing a contentious issue that divides the caucus and angers conservative GOP voters — especially since the party has been capitalizing on Obama’s abysmal approval ratings and on Democrats’ troubles in defending the national health care overhaul.

“Why in the world would we want to change the subject to comprehensive immigration reform,” said Rep. John Fleming, R-La., who called it a “suicide mission” for the GOP. A White House official said the details of a legalization plan would be crucial and administration support could hinge on whether those given legal status would have the option to eventually become citizens. The White House was

jurors from the metropolitan area and the rest of eastern Massachusetts. “It is not always as obvious a decision as you might think, especially when you’re in a place like Boston, which by reputation has always been the center of [death penalty] abolitionist beliefs,” Hoose said. “You have to weigh that against the raw emotional impact that most people in the eastern section of Massachusetts are going to have.” Victims of the bombing and their families had mixed reactions to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to press for execution. Even Tsarnaev’s friends are struggling with the question of whether he should be put to death if he is found guilty. “I don’t know if I wish him the best or the worst,” said Rebecca Mazur, who went to high school with him. “He certainly screwed up, but he is still a human being.” Marvin Salazar also went to high school with Tsarnaev but spent two years working with Krystle Campbell, one of those killed in the bombing. “I’m in a tough position,” he said. “I don’t know what justice is.”

Pipeline: Foes fear climate change impact Continued from Page A-1 pipeline. Republican Mitt Romney carried all three states in the 2012 presidential election. The 1,179-mile pipeline would travel through the heart of the United States, carrying oil derived from tar sands in western Canada to a hub in Nebraska, where it would connect with existing pipelines to carry more than 800,000 barrels of crude oil a day to refineries on the Texas Gulf Coast. It would cross Montana and South Dakota before reaching Nebraska. An existing spur runs through Kansas and Oklahoma to Texas. Canadian tar sands are likely to be developed regardless of U.S. action on the pipeline, the report said, The report says oil derived from tar sands in Alberta generates about 17 percent more greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming than traditional crude. But the report makes clear that other methods of transporting the oil — including rail, trucks and barges — would release more greenhouse gases than the pipeline. U.S. and Canadian accident investigators warned last week about the dangers of oil trains that transport crude oil from North Dakota and other states to refineries in the U.S. and Canada. The officials urged new safety rules, cautioning that a major loss of life could result from an accident involving the increasing use of trains to transport large amounts of crude oil. An alternative that relies on shipping the oil by rail through the central U.S. to Gulf Coast refineries would generate 28 percent more greenhouse gases than a pipeline, the report said. State Department approval is needed because the pipeline crosses a U.S. border. Other agencies will have 90 days to comment before Secretary of State John Kerry makes a recommendation to Obama on whether the project is in

Approval for an 1,179-mile oil pipeline to Canada that crosses some environmentally sensitive areas rests Sandhills with the State region Department, which has raised no major objection. A 485-mile Ogallala Aquifer section from Cushing, Okla., to the Houston area began shipping oil on Jan. 22.

the national interest. A final decision is not expected before summer. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said the report “once again confirms that there is no reason for the White House to continue stalling construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.” McConnell said: “Mr. President, no more stalling, no more excuses. Please pick up that pen you’ve been talking so much about and make this happen. Americans need these jobs.” However, a top official at the Natural Resources Defense Council, an environmental group, said the report gives Obama all the information he needs to reject the pipeline. “Piping the dirtiest oil on the planet through the heart of America would endanger our farms, our communities, our fresh water and our climate,” said Susan Casey-Lefkowitz, the NRDC’s international program director. “That is absolutely not in our national interest.”

The report said the pipeline was likely to have an adverse effect on the endangered American burying beetle, found in South Dakota and Nebraska. But it said that could be offset by a monitoring program and other requirements on the pipeline operator. In Canada, Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver welcomed the report and said officials there “await a timely decision” on the pipeline. “The choice for the United States is clear: oil supply from a reliable, environmentally responsible friend and neighbor or from unstable sources with similar or higher greenhouse gas emissions and lesser environmental standards,” he said. The new report comes only days after Obama’s State of the Union address, in which he reiterated his support for an “all-of-the-above” energy strategy that embraces a wide range of sources, from oil and natural gas to renewables such as wind and solar power. The remarks were a rebuff

to some of his environmental allies who argued that Obama’s support of expanded oil and gas production doesn’t make sense for a president who wants to reduce pollution linked to global warming. Obama blocked the Keystone XL pipeline in January 2012, saying he did not have enough time for a fair review before a deadline forced on him by congressional Republicans. That delayed the choice for him until after his re-election. Obama’s initial rejection went over badly in Canada, which relies on the U.S. for 97 percent of its energy exports. The pipeline is critical to Canada, which needs infrastructure in place to export its growing oil sands production In response, Obama quickly suggested development of an Oklahoma-to-Texas line to alleviate an oil bottleneck at a Cushing, Okla., storage hub. Oil began moving on that segment of the pipeline last week. The 485-mile southern section of the pipeline operated by Calgary-based TransCanada did not require presidential approval because it does not cross a U.S. border. TransCanada chief executive Russ Girling said he was pleased at the latest environmental review, the fifth released on the project since 2010. “The conclusions haven’t varied. They are the same as before,” he said. Environmental groups criticized the State Department for publishing the report before the department’s inspector general released findings of an inquiry into a contractor that worked on the review. Friends of the Earth and other groups say the contractor, Environmental Resources Management, has financial ties to TransCanada. “We feel confident there are no issues related to this contractor,” said Kerri Ann Jones, an assistant secretary of state who has overseen the Keystone review.

with aggravated burglary, aggravated battery against a household member, larceny, criminal damage to property, resisting arrest, a probation violation and failure to comply with a warrant. In the past, he has faced at least one drug-related charge and a count involving a stolen vehicle, and he pleaded no contest to a burglary charge last February. Esfandi is part of Santa Fe’s continuing property crime problem. Although property crime hit a record low in 2013, when the police department reported it had responded to 1,603 cases, it is still the most prevalent crime in Santa Fe, often fueled by heroin addiction, according to city police Chief Ray Rael and Santa Fe County Sheriff Robert Garcia. Police also have said that they believe the majority of burglaries in the city and county are committed by repeat offenders. Esfandi has become one of those serial burglary suspects. At about 10:50 a.m. Thursday, two police officers reportedly saw him leaving a home on Calle Caballero via a southfacing window. One of the officers ordered Esfandi to stop, but he ran toward a back fence and through an alley before tripping in the front yard of the home. While trying to handcuff Esfandi, Officer Patrick Pinson was cut, apparently by an open pocket knife officers found when they searched the suspect. Officers also recovered jewelry, which the resident later identified, and other items. Police believe Esfandi was attempting to break into a home Jan. 6 in the 7000 block of Valentine Loop, near Capital High School. When he noticed a woman recording the incident, however, he fled. The woman was able to capture video of him as he ran up the street and vanished around the corner. A few seconds later, the woman saw a blue car drive by with a person she thinks is the would-be burglar behind the wheel. Using the video, police were able to see the license plate number and match it to a car owned by Esfandi. In February 2013, Esfandi was arrested on a charges of aggravated fleeing from a law enforcement officer, receiving or transporting a stolen vehicle, tampering with evidence, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving with a revoked license, a stop sign violation, passing in a no-passing zone and a failure to comply with a warrant out of District Court. Eventually, most of those charges were dropped, and Esfandi pleaded no contest to aggravated fleeing from a law enforcement officer and residential burglary. According to court records, Esfandi agreed July 2 to spend four and a half years on supervised probation. As conditions of his probation, Esfandi agreed to avoid consuming “non-prescribed controlled substances.” He was ordered to undergo an alcohol and drug abuse assessment. But according to police records, officers picked up Esfandi on probation violations Aug. 23 and Oct. 31. Contact Chris Quintana at 986-3093 or cquintana@ sfnewmexican.com.

FBI, tribal police investigating death of 13-month-old boy CRYSTAL — The FBI and tribal police are investigating the death of 13-month-old boy in New Mexico. The toddler’s body was found Friday morning in a culvert near Crystal chapter house on the Navajo Nation. Authorities say the cause of death is under investigation. The name of the boy hasn’t been released. FBI officials say the body likely was in the culvert for less than eight hours before it was discovered. The Associated Press

Bridge: Governor denies allegations; supporters rally to his defense Continued from Page A-1 Wildstein gave almost no details about what he is asserting is untrue in Christie’s accounts. And he said nothing about what the important evidence is, or who has it. That made it hard to judge what role Wildstein’s letter — first reported by The New York Times — would play in the investigations. In rejecting Wildstein’s accusations, a Christie aide said in an email: “Mr. Wildstein’s lawyer confirms what the Governor has said all along — he had absolutely no prior knowledge of the lane closures before they happened and whatever Mr. Wildstein’s motivations were for closing them to begin with.” The aide added: “As the Governor said in a December 13th press conference, he only first learned lanes were closed when it was reported by the press and as he said in a January 9th press conference, had no indication that this was anything other than a traffic study until he read otherwise the morning of January 8th. The Governor denies Mr. Wildstein’s lawyer’s other assertions.”

During a news conference in January, Christie said he only recently had learned that the closures had been ordered by his administration. “I had no knowledge of this — of the planning, the execution or anything about it — and that I first found out about it after it was over,” Christie said then. Even when he found out about it, he said then, “what I was told was that it was a traffic study.” Christie’s supporters were quick Friday to rally behind the governor, a possible Republican presidential hopeful. Anthony Carbonetti, a Republican consultant and Christie’s longtime friend, said Wildstein’s letter was “not a smoking gun.” “If he had a smoking gun, he would have immunity already,” Carbonetti said. “Wildstein’s letter does not contradict Christie and it’s the work of someone who is trying to get his legal bills paid.” Last month, Wildstein pleaded the Fifth Amendment when he appeared with Zegas before a state assembly hearing about the traffic snarl. In a January, Zegas told The Washington Post that Wildstein is eager to share fresh information, as long as state and federal prosecutors

grant him immunity. “My client is willing to speak freely if he is conferred immunity,” Zegas said. “If he is granted immunity, he will fully cooperate. In the meantime, he intends to fully comply with his legal obligations, and we will voluntarily supply more documents without redactions.” Wildstein and Christie both attended Livingston High School in northern New Jersey, with Wildstein graduating in 1979 and Christie in 1980. The school was enormous — about 600 students per class — and the two were vastly different. Christie was the hyper-social class president, and Wildstein an introvert. “We didn’t travel in the same circles in high school,” Christie said in his January press conference. But the two students had one overlapping interest. “They both were associated with the baseball team at the same time, Chris as a player, David as a statistician,” said Tony Hope, a coach at Livingston in those years. But, Hope said, Wildstein’s role with the team was mainly limited to watching games from the stands. “There was no friendship of Chris

Christie and David Wildstein during their high school days,” Hope said. “A casual acquaintance, at best.” In recent interviews, several of Christie’s fellow players also said they did not recall Wildstein and Christie being close. “I think he was the manger or the assistant manager of the team. He used to travel. But I never saw him and Chris hanging out,” said Mike Inga, a former player now living in San Diego. “It definitely wasn’t somebody that he would consider a friend.” The flurry of activity Friday created a fresh distraction for Christie, who has been busy with preparations for Sunday’s Super Bowl, which will be held in East Rutherford, N.J. He was undeterred Friday night, however, appearing at Howard Stern’s birthday party in New York City and introducing rock star Jon Bon Jovi. Pictures on Twitter showed Christie, clad in a suit, grasping a microphone as he addressed the glitzy crowd. “Happy birthday, Howard,” Christie said, according to an account in the Newark Star-Ledger. “I’m here to bring all praise from New Jersey to Howard Stern.”

Lawmakers send Navajo gaming deal back to gov. Committee prefers compact that would limit tribe to 3 casinos By Uriel J. Garcia

The New Mexican

Lawmakers are urging the Navajo Nation to agree to limit its gambling operations to three existing casinos. On Friday, the Legislature’s Committee on Compacts voted to send an agreement on the terms and conditions of the Navajo gaming business back to the governor and the tribe for further negotiations. The governor negotiates tribes’ gambling compacts, but the deals

must be approved by the Legislature. However, lawmakers cannot amend the terms of the agreements. The compacts also must be sanctioned by the U.S. Department of the Interior. The Navajo Nation currently operates two Las Vegas-style casinos and one Class II casino — essentially, a bingo parlor. The tribe wants to open a third Las Vegas-style casino within five years of signing the new compact, then two more at least three years apart. Sen. Clemente Sanchez, D-Grants, a committee member, has warned that the additional casinos would saturate the state’s gambling market and wouldn’t be fair to tribes who haven’t yet negotiated gambling compacts

with the state. But Sen. John C. Ryan, R-Bernalillo, said if his colleagues keep sending the Navajo Nation back to renegotiate every single detail of its deal with the governor, the Legislature isn’t going to be able to pass an agreement. “If we keep amending this compact, we’re going to destroy it,” agreed Sen. John Pinto, D-San Juan, speaking in support of Ryan’s comments. “We have to respect the Navajo Nation.” Last year, the Legislature adjourned before voting on the proposed compact. Karis Begaye, a lawyer for the Navajo Nation, said there is a possibility that the tribe could upgrade its third gaming facility into Las Vegas-

style casino. But Navajo delegate LoRenzo Bates told the panel that the tribe isn’t going to accept fewer than five casinos. He added that the tribe won’t open additional gambling facilities until the state’s economy is stronger. The Navajo Nation, along with four other tribes — the Mescalero and Jicarilla Apaches as well as Acoma and Pojoaque pueblos — signed gambling compacts with the state in 2001. The deals are scheduled to expire next year. The compacts put no limit on the number of casinos allowed. The Martinez administration has given the proposed Navajo Nation compact its blessing.

Jessica Hernandez, a lawyer for the Governor’s Office, said the administration also has confirmed that the compact would be approved by the U.S. Department of the Interior. Last week, various pueblo officials spoke against the compact, specifically targeting the provision that would allow the Navajos to build more casinos in New Mexico. The officials told lawmakers it would disrupt the current revenue stream they depend on to sustain their tribes. Contact Uriel J. Garcia at 986-3062 or ugarcia@sfnewmexican.com.

Legislative roundup Days remaining in session: 19 Here’s to you, Mr. and Mrs. Robinson: Nike founder and owner Phil Knight visited the New Mexico House of Representatives on Friday to honor Charles and Mara Robinson of Santa Fe. A memorial in the House sponsored by Speaker Kenny Martinez, D-Grants, recognized the Robinsons “as New Mexico living treasures” for their contributions to the state, particularly their support for arts and education. Knight met Charles Robinson, 94, in the early days of Nike — long before it sold $23 billion worth of merchandise in a year and catapulted Knight’s net worth past $16 billion. Charles Robinson served on the Nike board of directors for 33 years. After serving in World War II, Charles Robinson launched a career in international business, including founding Marcona Corp., a mining company in Peru, and later became an investment banker. He was appointed undersecretary for economic affairs by Secretary of State Henry Kissinger during President Gerald Ford’s administration. Mara Robinson, 84, is a former opera singer. She founded the Opera-West company in San Francisco in the 1950s and was a talent scout for The Santa Fe Opera and a founding member of the New Mexico School for the Arts. The Robinsons have lived in Santa Fe since 1978. They have three daughters. Does Moe know football? State Rep. Antonio “Moe” Maestas, the son of a sports writer, stood on the House floor Friday and guaranteed that the Seattle Seahawks will win Sunday’s Super Bowl against Denver. Maestas, D-Albuquerque, has an obvious bias for Seattle. He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Washington. Maestas’ last prediction was that the House of Representatives would win the annual basketball game against the state Senate. He was nothin’ but net on that one. Push for emergency medication at schools: Children have died unnecessarily in New Mexico because emergency medications were not readily accessible at their schools, according to supporters of a bill that would make the medications more easily available.

Backers of Senate Bill 75 testified Thursday, when the measure cleared its first legislative hurdle with a pass in the Senate Public Affairs Committee. Next it moves to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The legislation sponsored by Sen. Mark Moores, R-Albuquerque, would allow schools to stock and provide emergency medications, such as EpiPens for allergic reactions to insect and food allergies, and inhalers for apparent respiratory distress. Under current law, schools cannot stock these medications, and they can only be administered if students provide them. Moores’ bill would permit short-term emergency care in schools for students suffering from certain medical conditions until emergency medical technicians arrive. “Most children have their first allergic reaction at school,” Moores said in a written statement. “Many parents don’t even know their child is allergic until there is a reaction at school.” The proposal in New Mexico follows a growing trend to allow schools to stock and administer emergency medications. Twenty-six states have similar laws, and 15 states joined those ranks in 2013, according to The Associated Press. Looking ahead: Monday, Feb. 3, is School Nutrition Day at the Legislature. The organization Farm to Table and The New Mexico Food and Agricultural Policy Council will be promoting two bills, SB 143 and HB 81, both of which would appropriate $1.44 million to purchase New Mexico produce for school meals. Quote of the day: “I log about 60,000 miles a year on New Mexico highways, and New Mexico State Police know me well.” — Rep. Eliseo Alcon, D-Milan, telling the New Mexico Press Association about lawmakers’ year-round work.

Money: Vote slated for Monday Continued from Page A-1 said Rep. Luciano “Lucky” Varela, D-Santa Fe, who serves on the House Finance Committee and chairs the Legislative Finance Committee. “We’re still not in agreement with the executive [Martinez].” Gone from the bill is the $1.5 million the governor wanted to create a Parent Portal, so parents could more easily monitor how their children are doing in school, and roughly $2 million in books for elementary school students. On the other hand, the revised bill proposes $23.3 million, rather than the $19.3 million originally proposed by the governor, for K-3 Plus programs. Speaking by phone Friday, Public Education Secretary-designate Hanna Skandera said Stewart’s bill leaves “little to no room for true reform for our students. … HB 3 falls miserably

short for our kids in our state and for reform.” While praising the bump in K-3 Plus funds, Skandera said, “That is one good step for many failed steps in the bill.” Rep. Jimmie Hall, R-Albuquerque, and a member of the appropriations committee, said, “All I know is that they’re not funding the reform issues, so they can’t be implemented. If that’s a pushback on reforms, that’s a pushback.” Stewart said by phone that nothing has been decided. Hall and Skandera said Stewart did not solicit the input of the Public Education Department. Stewart said, “That’s not PED’s job. House Bill 3 is the purview of the House Education Committee, not the PED. … They don’t ask us for advice before they do their budget.” Contact Patrick Malone at 986-3017 or Robert Nott at 986-3021.

Cigarette distributors are fighting back against a proposal being pushed by a Santa Fe think tank that would end discounts for affixing tax stamps to cigarette packs. The tax-stamp provision is just one of several tax loopholes targeted in Senate Bill 10, sponsored by Senate President Pro Tem Mary Kay Papen and touted by Think New Mexico. In addition to closing loopholes, the bill would establish a “post-performance tax incentive,” in which companies could receive tax benefits only after creating high-paying jobs or making large investments in the state. Nearly all packs of cigarettes sold in the state must have a tax stamp affixed to prove that the state tax has been paid. Since the early 1940s — long before smoking became a widely recognized health hazard — the state has given a discount to distributors for affixing the stamps. Fred Nathan, executive director of Think New Mexico, has argued that the discount is akin to paying someone to obey the law. But lobbyist Marco Gonzales said Friday that ending the discount could lead to more contraband cigarettes in New Mexico. Gonzales is a lobbyist for McLane Company Inc., a Texas company that supplies cigarettes and food to convenience stores, drug stores, military bases and other retailers.

He said if the state ends the discount for distributors, the state Tax and Revenue Department would have to perform that task. This, he said, would lead to trucks on the road hauling unstamped cigarettes, which could lead to more contraband cigarettes in the state. Gonzales also argued that more contraband cigarettes could lead to less money for the state from the Tobacco Settlement Fund. “Eliminating the discount could hurt some of the very people that Think New Mexico wants to help,” he said. Gonzales said revenues from the tobacco settlement fund are based on market shares of cigarette sales, which would fall if there was an increase in contraband cigarettes. Nathan on Friday scoffed at this argument. “New Hampshire repealed its tax-stamp discount in 2003, and in that state, the tobacco distributors continue to affix the stamps, and there has not been an outbreak of contraband cigarettes in the wake of the repeal,” he said. Nathan also argued that there is nothing in SB 10 that would require the tax department to affix the stamps. Asked about that, Gonzales said the cigarette distributors and the state are in “a partnership.” He said 48 other states beside New Mexico have such discounts. Whoever wins this argument, the amount of money at stake is relatively small. Think

New Mexico estimates that eliminating the stamp discount would add only $178,000 annually to the state general fund. Nathan said eliminating the discount would add less than a penny to a pack of smokes. The stamp discount currently is 0.55 percent for less than $30,000 worth of stamps. The discount goes down to 0.44 percent for the next $30,000 in stamps, then down to a 0.27 percent discount for the next $30,000. The tax stamp provision isn’t the only part of the bill drawing fire from lobbyists. Lobbyist Dick Minzner said Friday that his client has problems with the section of SB 10 dealing with tax increment development districts (TIDDS). SB 10 calls for reducing the amount of tax revenues that may be dedicated to such a development from 75 percent to 30 percent. This, Minzner said, “would make TIDDS less useful for my client.” Minzner lobbies for the creditors who foreclosed on SunCal, which, before filing for bankruptcy, was planning a large development on Albuquerque’s West Mesa. The Legislature in 2009 rejected a proposed tax increment development district for the project. The Senate Corporations and Transportation Committee has yet to set a hearing for SB 10.

CYFD chief defends agency, explains staff vacancies Deines: Difficult, demanding work leads to turnover By Milan Simonich The New Mexican

The head of the state’s Children, Youth and Families Department defended her agency Friday, telling lawmakers that even an influx of money cannot solve all the problems that make protecting children one of the hardest jobs in state government. Yolanda Deines, the Cabinet secretary who oversees the department, said her agency hired 314 employees in one stretch. But it lost just as many during the same period because the work is so difficult and demanding, she said. Deines faced criticism from senators earlier in the week for not appearing at a hearing of the Rules Committee when it inquired about why vacancies in her agency had gone unfilled. CYFD returned about $6 million to the state treasury last year, prompting Sen. Gerald Ortiz y Pino, D-Albuquerque, to question its operating procedures. Deines testified Friday dur-

ing a wide-ranging, two-hour hearing of the Senate Public Affairs Committee. She said any shortcomings in the department were not for lack of effort. “We have been doing our very best,” Deines said. But staffing CYFD’s child protection division is “like trying to climb up a very steep, icecovered mountain.” CYFD has received more attention than usual since the

arrest in December of an Albuquerque woman suspected in the kicking death of her 9-yearold son, Omaree Varela. Deines declined to discuss details of Omaree’s case, other than saying a 911 call involving the boy was never referred to her agency. She also told the Public Affairs Committee that she opposes a joint memorial seeking a raft of historical information from her agency regarding foster care. But the committee advanced the measure on a 3-2 party-line vote. Sen. Michael Padilla, the sponsor, said he did not want to make unsubstantiated judgments about CYFD, so he considered all the data crucial. Deines said compiling some of it would be onerous, and she was concerned about the resources that would be needed. The memorial by Padilla, D-Albuquerque, has no force of law, but Democratic senators said they considered it a good step toward determining how CYFD operations could be improved.

LOCAL NEWS New details emerge in August rape case Victim taught suspect in elementary school By Chris Quintana The New Mexican

A search warrant and police affidavit reveal new details about the alleged rape of a 58-year-old woman last August in her southside home, where the woman

says a housemate beat her and tried to strangle her. Armando Martinez, 42, faces charges of aggravated battery, criminal sexual penetration and interference with communications. Since August, he has been in the Santa Fe County jail in lieu of a $350,000 cash bond. According to a report on the investigation, the woman said she had been letting Martinez live in

her home since July 2013. She told deputies she was helping him “get back on his feet” and that she was one of his elementary school teachers more than 30 years ago. The woman told one deputy that Martinez was her boyfriend, and she told another that they had a “purely platonic relationship.” But she told both deputies that she and Martinez had not “engaged in sexual activities.”

According to the woman, Martinez had started making sexual advances and “became jealous” when she talked to other people. She said she installed a lock on her bedroom door. But on Aug. 15, after a day of drinking, the woman said, Martinez turned violent. She said he had come home

A man sentenced to three years in prison in November for his role in a downtown brawl that resulted in the death of another man asked a judge Friday to consider shortening his sentence. The judge said no. During his trial last August, Eresmo Baca, 61, claimed he had acted in self-defense in 2011 when he fatally punched 39-year-old Sebastian Gordon on a sidewalk on West San Francisco Street adjacent to the Plaza. Baca’s lawyer repeated the claim Friday, describing the fight between Baca and Gordon as a “tragic accident.” Witnesses in the case said the two became involved in an altercation after Gordon — who was reportedly standing on the sidewalk around 11 p.m. the night of

Santa Fe High students make their way to class on a recent school day. A new report from the state Public Education Department shows the high school’s graduation rate has dropped, from 67.6 percent in 2012 to 62.6 percent in 2013, while Capital High saw an increase, with a graduation rate of 64.2 percent in 2013. CLYDE MUELLER/THE NEW MEXICAN

New report shows both schools still below state average of 70.3 percent anta Fe High School’s four-year graduation rate dropped five percentage points in 2013, while Capital High School’s rate increased three and a half points, according to a report released Friday by the Public Education Department. The four-year, or cohort, graduation rate is the percentage of students entering high school as freshmen who achieve graduation four years later. The cohort rate for Santa Fe High’s Class of 2013 fell from 67.6 percent in 2012 to 62.6 percent. Capital’s rate rose from 60.7 percent in 2012 to 64.2 percent. Both schools were still below the statewide average rate, which remained essentially unchanged. The four-year graduation rate for 2013 in New Mexico was 70.3 percent, compared to 70.4 percent in 2012. Santa Fe Public Schools Superintendent

Joel Boyd said this is the first time in five years that Capital’s graduation rate has surpassed Santa Fe High’s, and it is a reflection of the resources the district has poured into the school, as well as the leadership of its new principal — Channell Wilson-Segura. Capital High School’s rates have slowly risen from a low of about 51 percent in 2008. Santa Fe High School’s rate, Boyd noted, has gone up and down over the past five years, from about 60 percent in 2008 to 67 percent the following year, then down to just over 63 percent in 2010 and up to about 64 percent in 2011, suggesting that a change in strategies is needed. The graduation data, released by the state Public Education Department on Friday, comes on the heels of a recent district report noting that Santa Fe High has a much higher truancy rate — around 80 percent — than Capital High, which is roughly 91 percent. Truancy and graduation rates are closely connected, Boyd pointed out. “When a kid is truant, the likelihood of graduation decreases,” he said. The Academy at Larragoite, an alternative high school that offers online courses as well a second chance for students set on dropping out, has a graduation rate of under

27 percent this year. Two of the district’s three charter schools also saw a decrease in graduation rates in 2013. The Academy for Technology and the Classics dropped from 84.4 percent to 78.4 percent. Tierra Encantada Charter School dropped from 35.7 percent to 27.5 percent. Monte del Sol Charter School, however, saw an increase from 65.3 percent to 69.5 percent. Within Santa Fe Public Schools, Boyd noted, most students who fail to graduate drop out in the ninth grade. He said the district hopes to increase its graduation rate to somewhere between 75 percent and 80 percent within four years as part of its five-year strategic plan. Los Alamos Public School’s graduation rate for 2013 is 83.4 percent. The Pojoaque school district is at 76.1 percent, while the Pecos district is at 74.5 percent. Española Public Schools’ graduation rate is just over 57 percent. New Mexico generally ranks near the bottom 10 states when it comes to national high school graduation levels. Texas, for instance, has an 87.7 percent rate, while Colorado’s rate is around 77 percent. New Mexico’s 2013 cohort graduation rate can be found online at www.ped.state.nm.us.

all-weather crossing on Los Pinos Road because of the problems allegedly caused by the culverts. The complaint asks the court to award the county general, special and punitive damages plus costs in the case and to force Montoya to remove the culverts. Montoya, his wife, Marlene Montoya, and their company, Advantage Asphalt — which has done millions of dollars worth of contract work for the city and the county in the past decade — were indicted by a grand jury in February 2012 on hundreds of counts of fraud, racketeering and bribery for alleged

wrongdoing related to work the firm did for Santa Fe County. Those charges are still pending. Attorney Matthew Ortiz, who represents Advantage Asphalt, said Friday he hadn’t seen the lawsuit, but once he does, he plans to “respond aggressively to defend it in the strongest way possible.” “If you go by the road, you’ll see, with the weather, the culvert is holding up just fine,” Ortiz said. “This is is just more [in a series of] ad hominem attacks by Santa Fe County, trying to tear down the Montoyas and the Montoyas’ business. And that’s how we’ll treat it.”

Beginning in May, tourists who visit the Old Main prison, next to the Penitentiary of New Mexico on N.M. 14, can buy art created by inmates as part of a rehabilitation program, the New Mexico Corrections Department said. NEW MEXICAN FILE PHOTO

N.M. inmates to sell artwork at old prison By Russell Contreras The Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE — The artwork of New Mexico inmates will go on sale at the site of one of the deadliest prison riots in the nation’s history. Beginning in May, tourists who visit the Old Main prison can buy art that was created as part of a rehabilitation program, the New Mexico Corrections Department said. It’s just one of many offerings planned as the department transforms the now-closed prison near Santa Fe into a museum. Last October, the Corrections Department opened the historic site for limited public tours. Officials plan to host a dozen or so tours this year. Officials say the long-term project is still in its early stages, but they expect that it will not seek taxpayer money and will instead rely on fees from visitors. Crews from the Penitentiary of New Mexico will help with repairs, and the museum could open within three to five years, officials said. The final cost is not clear. Inmates from the penitentiary, located next to Old Main, would be involved in operating the museum, which would include a restaurant and a place to get a haircut. In February 1980, inmates at Old Main killed 33 fellow prisoners in a violent clash that included beheadings, amputations and burned bodies. The riot led to massive reforms within New Mexico’s prison system. “We know what caused the riot, and with your help, we can use Old Main to actually provide programming and opportunities that inmates in 1980 wanted,” department spokesman Alex Tomlin wrote in a blog post promoting the Old Main Revitalization Project. Officials said portions of the proceeds from sales of artworks and handcrafts will go to children of inmates, organizations that aid crime victims and inmate programs. The planned museum follows a trend in “dark tourism” to transform the sites of tragic events and disasters. In New York City, the World Trade Center site saw an influx of visitors after the Sept. 11, 2001, attack and planners for the memorial site factored in that increased tourist traffic.

Duels once were way to resolve personal disputes I n the years between our war for independence and the Civil War, the practice of dueling flourished throughout the country. It traced back to medieval trials by combat to settle offenses to personal honor. A strict code of rules was observed by both parties. Many of the most prominent men in America went to the dueling ground to “gain satisfaction” for some real or imagined insult. Best remembered is the duel of 1804, in which Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton was killed by Vice President Aaron Burr. This subject was brought to mind when I received an inquiry from David Remley of Silver City. He was editing the diary of 19-year-old Johnny Watts, who came out from Indiana in 1859 to join his father, John S. Watts, a justice on the territorial Supreme Court. Remley quoted Johnny’s entry for Sept. 14, wherein the boy refers to a duel his father had recently with New Mexico’s congressional delegate, Miguel A. Otero. Had I ever heard of such a

duel, he wanted to know. I hadn’t. found the famous plainsman and freighter F.X.

This should probably not be classed as a duel, as it lacked the customary formalities. However, Weightman’s dueling background no doubt contributed directly to the outcome. Another informal duel is associated with the career of the celebrated Kit Carson, a resident of Taos. It occurred during his youth when, as a trapper, he attended the mountain man rendezvous of 1835 on the Wind River in Wyoming. These gatherings of the furtrapping men were wild and drunken affairs, attended by much brawling. On this occasion, a huge French trapper named Chouinard picked fights and bullied everyone in sight. The trappers tried to stay out of his way. Everyone did, except Kit Carson, who was in his mid-20s, slender, and stood only 5-foot7. He finally told Chouinard to back off or, as Kit put it, “I

would rip his guts.” Those were fighting words, the kind that led to a facedown duel. Chouinard went for his rifle, and Kit took up a pistol. Then both men mounted their horses and raced toward one another in front of the camp. “We both fired at the same time,” Carson says, “and all present stated that only one report was heard. I shot him through the arm, and his ball passed by my head, cutting my hair and the powder burning my eye.” Years later, Carson noted in his memoirs that the trappers suffered no further trouble from

Chouinard. Others who were there declared that the reason was, Kit in fact had killed his bully. Historians are still not exactly sure which version is true. It has been said that duels served as a valve for venting bitter personal disputes. But fortunately for the social health of the nation, the bloody custom had practically died out by the 1860s. Now in semi-retirement, author Marc Simmons wrote a weekly history column for more than 35 years. The New Mexican is publishing reprints from among the more than 1,800 columns he produced during his career.

Number of butterflies wintering in Mexico plummets in sign annual migration may disappear By Mark Stevenson The Associated Press

symbol of trilateral cooperation. “Twenty years after the signing of NAFTA, the Monarch migration, the symbol of the three countries’ cooperation, is at serious risk of disappearing,” said Omar Vidal, the World Wildlife Fund director in Mexico. Lincoln Brower, a leading entomologist at Sweet Briar College in Virginia, wrote that “the migration is definitely proving to be an endangered biological phenomenon.” “The main culprit,” he wrote in an email, is now genetically modified “herbicide-resistant corn and soybean crops and herbicides in the USA,” which “leads to the wholesale killing of the monarch’s principal food plant, common milkweed.” While Mexico has made headway in reducing logging in the officially protected winter reserve, that alone cannot save the migration, wrote Karen Oberhauser, a professor at the University of Minnesota. She noted that studies indicate that the U.S. Midwest is where most of the butterflies migrate from. “A large part of their reproductive habitat in that region has been lost due to changes in agricultural practices, mainly the explosive growth in the use of herbicide-tolerant crops,” Oberhauser said. Extreme weather — severe cold snaps, unusually heavy rains or droughts in all three countries — have also apparently played a role in the decline. But the milkweed issue now places the spotlight firmly on the United States and President Barack Obama, who is scheduled to visit Mexico on Feb. 19, with events scheduled for Toluca, a city a few dozen

A Monarch butterfly at the Sierra Chincua Sanctuary in the mountains of Mexico’s Michoacan state in December 2011. The number of Monarch butterflies wintering in Mexico has plunged to its lowest level since studies began in 1993. A report released Wednesday by the World Wildlife Fund, Mexico’s Environment Department and the Natural Protected Areas Commission blames the dramatic decline on the insect’s loss of habitat due to illegal logging in Mexico’s mountaintop forests and the massive displacement of its food source, the milkweed plant.

miles from the butterfly reserve. “I think President Obama should take some step to support the survival of the Monarch butterflies,” said writer and environmentalist Homero Aridjis. “The governments of the United States and Canada have washed their hands of the problem, and left it all to Mexico.” It’s unclear what would happen to the Monarchs if they no longer made the annual trek to Mexico, the world’s biggest migration of Monarch butterflies and the second-largest insect migration, after a species of dragonfly in Africa. There are Monarchs in many parts of the world, so they would not go extinct. The butterflies can apparently survive year-round in warmer climates, but populations in the Northern United States and Canada would have to find some place to spend the bitter winters. There is also another smaller migration route that takes butterflies from the west to the coast of California, but that has registered even steeper declines. Oberhauser noted that some Monarchs now appear to be wintering along the U.S. Gulf Coast, and there has been a movement in the United States among gardeners and home owners to plant milkweed to replace some of the lost habitat. But activists say large stands of milkweed are needed along the migratory route, comparable to what once grew there. They also want local authorities in the U.S. and Canada to alter mowing schedules in parks and public spaces, to avoid cutting down milkweed during breeding seasons. The migration is an inherited trait. No butterfly lives to make the full round-trip, and it is unclear how they remember the route back to the same patch of forest each year, a journey of thousands of miles to a forest reserve that covers 193,000 acres in central Mexico. Some scientists think the huge masses of migrating butterflies may release chemicals that mark the migratory path and that if their numbers fall low enough, not enough chemical traces would remain and the route-marking might no longer work.

irgin Galactic has placed another hold on the planned launch of a series of commercial, suborbital flights into zero gravity from New Mexico’s Spaceport America. Sir Richard Branson, the company’s founder, now anticipates beginning the $250,000-a-ticket rides sometime this year, he said last week, after a test flight in California. Another space objective on a different scale came into view last year when NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope released a new portrait of the star next door, Proxima Centauri. The smallest star in the triple-star Alpha Centauri system, Roger Proxima Centauri gets its Latin Snodgrass name “Proxima” by virtue of being “nearest to” the Earth. Science Matters Only about one-eighth the mass of our sun and 4.2 million light years away, Proxima Centauri is invisible to the human eye, but it seems blazingly close in the new Hubble image. Located 170,000 light years farther away, Alpha Centauri A and B are much bigger and brighter. The combined magnitude of the Alpha Centauri system and its proximity make it the third brightest stellar object in the sky as seen from Earth, not counting the sun. Proxima Centauri is a “flare star,” which means that “convection processes within the star’s body make it prone to random and dramatic changes in brightness,” according to NASA. “The convection processes not only trigger brilliant bursts of starlight but, combined with other factors, mean that Proxima Centauri is in for a very long life. Astronomers predict that this star will remain middle-aged — or a ‘main sequence’ star in astronomical terms — for another 4 trillion years, some 300 times the age of the current universe.” For comparison, the sun is about 5 billion years old and is expected to last about another 5 billion years before cooling and expanding outward to encompass an area as great as Earth’s orbit, according to the anticipated life cycle of the kind of normal, mainsequence star that it is. An Earth-sized planet was identified orbiting Alpha Centauri B by a European team in 2012, but it has since been relegated to the uncertain category until further corroboration. The chance of harboring an Earth-like habitat would be a major inducement for future exploration, but the distance is still a major obstacle that many doubt ever can be overcome. Although four light years is as close as we get to another star system, that’s still 35 trillion miles. The fastest known interstellar speed, posted by the Voyager spacecraft recently as it left the solar system — some 36 years after launch — was only 27,000 miles per hour. At that rate, it would take thousands of years to get to Alpha Centauri. One new concept for starship propulsion, institutionalized as the Hundred Year Starship and given startup funding by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, has actually committed a kind of scientific heresy in its project by committing to explore an untested faster-than-light-speed proposition worthy of a Star Trek episode. Until this obstacle can be addressed, distance will be a show-stopper. What can we imagine now about living on a flare star in a triple star system? In fact, that’s a question already under consideration by science fiction writers. The Astronomical Society of the Pacific curates a website of “Science Fiction Stories with Good Astronomy & Physics” that includes some illuminating suggestions about this and many other cosmic issues. u In Flare Time, a collection of essays and short stories, Larry Niven’s “Limits,” published in 1984, imagines life on a planet in a binary star system with a flare star – and many different ecosystems. u Robert Sawyer’s 1997 novel Illegal Alien creates a courtroom drama about an alien race contending with a complex gravitational influence that is drawing their planet under the influence of a dimmer star. u Gregory Benford’s short story, “Dance to Strange Musics,” in Year’s Best Science Fiction 4, 1999, relates the adventure of the first expedition to Alpha Centauri and the nature of a collective life form that gets its energy from the exotic electrical effects of the multiple star system. The implacable instinct of human curiosity has lost little time contemplating the significance of Earth’s nearest neighbor or speculating on new technologies to bridge the gulf between us. Thought games like this are entertaining, but they also employ a rational filter that adds to a reality that is not just way out in space, but completely out of this world.

Alpha Centauri system beckons new generation of dreamers By Roger Snodgrass

Monarchs EXICO CITY — The stunning and little-understood annual migration of millions of Monarch butterflies to spend the winter in Mexico is in danger of disappearing, experts said Wednesday, after numbers dropped to their lowest level since record-keeping began in 1993. Their report blamed the displacement of the milkweed the species feeds on by genetically modified crops and urban sprawl in the United States, extreme weather trends and the dramatic reduction of the butterflies’ habitat in Mexico due to illegal logging of the trees they depend on for shelter. After steep and steady declines in the previous three years, the black-and-orange butterflies now cover only 1.65 acres in the pine and fir forests west of Mexico City, compared to 2.93 acres last year, according to the report released by the World Wildlife Fund, Mexico’s Environment Department and the Natural Protected Areas Commission. They covered more than 44.5 acres at their recorded peak in 1996. Because the butterflies clump together by the thousands in trees, they are counted by the area they cover. While the Monarch is not in danger of extinction, the decline in their population now marks a statistical long-term trend and can no longer be seen as a combination of yearly or seasonal events, experts said. The announcement followed on the heels of the 20th anniversary of the North American Free Trade Agreement, which saw the United States, Mexico and Canada sign environmental accords to protect migratory species such as the Monarch.

Land donated for prairie chicken plan The Associated Press

HOUSTON — Five oil and gas companies have pledged to give 1.5 million acres of land in five states for conservation of lesser prairie chicken habitat as part of an effort to prevent the bird from being federally protected as a threatened species. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department said in a statement Friday this represents the first enrollment in the socalled “range-wide plan” developed by the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies and state wildlife agencies in Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. The lesser prairie chicken lives in the plains of these five states. Its numbers have dwindled in recent years from fewer than 45,000 in December 2012, when the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service first proposed enlisting the bird under the Endangered Species Act, to fewer than 18,000 in the most recent survey. Drought and loss of habitat are blamed for the decline. The

Those industries fear a listing could make decided after further deliberation not to carry forward any of the parcels for the upcoming sale in February.

JEMEZ SPRINGS — A New Mexico police chief is facing heat after the Transportation Security Administration revealed he had two names. KOB-TV reports that Jemez Springs Police Chief Shane Harger was recently detained by TSA agents at Albuquerque International Sunport for having a different name on his boarding pass than his ID. The name on his New Mexico driver’s license is Braxton Haze. The police chief said he changed his name in connection with a 2007 case involving former Albuquerque Officer Levi Chavez, who was later acquitted of killing his wife, Tera, and making it look like a suicide in Los Lunas. Harger says he used to be a deputy in Valencia County and was the first to arrive at the scene the night Tera was found dead. The village council opted this week to keep Harger as chief.

Continental Resources, Devon Energy, Apache Corp., Occidental Oil and Gas Corp. and Samson Resources are the first companies to enroll acreage in the plan. “We believe this plan offers the best, most comprehensive approach available to conserve the lesser prairie chicken and its habitat, while providing some assurance for participating companies so we can continue to do business,” said Ben Shepperd, president of the Permian Basin Petroleum Association, which represents the oil and gas industry in West Texas and parts of New Mexico. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service are also extending landowners a conservation deal. Under that agreement, landowners who preserve habitat would not be liable for dead birds found in the conservation areas, even in the event the chicken receives federal protection. psychiatric facility to a juvenile center. Chandlers also says that in addition to three counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, the suspect faces a new charge of carrying a firearm on school premises. New Mexico State Police say the seventh-grade boy took a shotgun to Berrendo Middle School and opened fire on classmates gathered in the gym before classes started Jan. 14. The Associated Press typically doesn’t identify juveniles accused of crimes. Two students were injured in the shooting, one critically.

Judge OKs recall drive against treasurer ALBUQUERQUE — Critics of Bernalillo County Treasure Manny Ortiz have the green light to try to force him into a recall election. District Court Judge Alan Malott’s ruling allows opponents of Ortiz to begin collecting the more than 82,000 voter signatures that are required to trigger the proposed recall election. The judge dismissed most of the allegations against Ortiz but ruled there is reason to believe Ortiz wrongly managed county investments. Malott cited testimony that Ortiz sold bonds at a loss late last year and didn’t heed warnings about committing to longterm investments. Ortiz declined to comment as he left the courtroom after Thursday’s hearing. Under the New Mexico Constitution, recall efforts targeting county officials require a judge’s approval.

E

ven as Syrian government and rebel negotiators meet in Switzerland, near civil war threatens Iraq, Syria’s next-door neighbor. Al-Qaida-linked fighters and Sunni tribes have taken control of important cities in Anbar province, the biggest in Iraq. The government has lost control of Ramadi and FalBill Stewart lujah, key cities west Understanding of BaghYour World dad that were the scenes of major fighting between U.S. and insurgent troops in 2004. Approximately one-third of U.S. military casualties during its eight-year war in Iraq occurred in Anbar. In Fallujah, Sunni militants from an alQaida-affiliated group, Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, allied themselves with leading anti-government Sunni tribes and took control. “Levant” is an older term referring to countries bordering on the Mediterranean from Egypt to Turkey, including Syria, Israel and Lebanon. In closeby Ramadi, it is fiercely antigovernment tribes that have taken control. The key point is that the government’s armed forces were unable to retain control of two important cities close to Baghdad, the nation’s capital. That presents a serious security problem for the government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. Ramadi and Fallujah together have about 1 million people between them, and the loss of these two key cities could embolden militants and disgruntled Sunni communities elsewhere in Iraq, threatening the nation’s unity, still fragile after the fall of the late Saddam Hussein. In fact, at least onethird of Iraq’s provinces are at this time seeking to transform themselves into regions enjoying the same kind of autonomy that Kurdistan has enjoyed for a number of years.

ANOTHER VIEW

Goodbye, Pete Seeger Chicago Tribune

Sunni Arabs are a minority in Iraq, which is largely Shiite, but the Sunnis dominated the country for generations, including the years under Saddam. Small wonder then that the failure of al-Maliki to include the Sunnis in his government in any significant way, despite constant pressure from the U.S., has been a major source of grievance amongst the Sunnis and has led to a rise in sectarianism, long endemic in Iraq. Indeed, sectarianism has long been a problem in the Arab Muslim world, lying dormant for decades at a time and then suddenly erupting into violence. Sunnis still find it difficult to accept the undeniable fact that they are a statistical minority in Iraq, claiming that they alone are the true Iraqis. No matter who was in power, the Sunnis would be difficult to satisfy. The exploitation of this sectarianism by al-Qaida affiliates is a major cause of the current fighting. The figures are grim. In 2013, there was an average of 68 car bombings a month throughout the country. On a single day in October, there were 15 car bomb explosions in Baghdad alone. Some 6,000 civilians were killed last year in terrorist attacks. The al-Qaida affiliates favor

spectacular explosions to gain international attention. But there are even more numerous attacks by nationalist or sectarian militants, mostly former soldiers or militia members who have been defending their streets from all-comers for close to a decade. As security continues to decline, the U.S. has offered support in the form of surveillance drones, helicopters and Hellfire missiles, but no troops. Iran, too, has offered aid, which raises the bizarre possibility of the U.S. and Iran backing the same side in an increasingly complex situation. Iran, as an officially Shiite country, already has a close connection with Iraq. Al-Maliki has worsened the situation by allowing and encouraging purges of Iraqi politicians in the name of deBaathification, the Baath party being the one that ran Iraq for decades, even under Saddam Hussein. He has systematically marginalized politicians such as former Vice President Tariq al Hashemi. Al-Maliki seems to be a firm believer in the old Middle Eastern maxim that power, once achieved, is not to be shared. Even though the Iraqi government is believed to have about 930,000 security personnel under its command, spread

across the army, police force and intelligence services, that number does not seem to be sufficient to retake Anbar province. The al-Qaida-affiliated forces are said to number some 12,000. Al-Maliki needs to find a political solution, not only in Anbar, but in other provinces seeking greater independence from Baghdad. Parliamentary elections scheduled for April will be a crucial battle between those embracing al-Maliki’s vision of a more tightly centralized government in Baghdad or those looking for autonomy as in present-day Kurdistan. The current fighting in Anbar is more than a confrontation between Sunni militants and the al-Maliki government, or just between al-Qaidaaffiliated forces and Baghdad. It is, perhaps, one for a nation of autonomous regions. It is useful to remember that Iraq was cobbled together by the British out of the rubble of the Ottoman Empire at the end of World War I. The Iraqis didn’t like the result then; it appears they don’t like it now. Bill Stewart writes about current affairs from Santa Fe.

Javier listens, thinks carefully and feels deeply for our community. Even when we disagreed, I felt I could talk with him. He is dynamic and optimistic about our future. These are the qualities we need in the mayor’s office. Javier has already built an impressive coalition of Santa Feans, old and new. I hope you will join me in supporting him.

I was fortunate to attend the Jan. 19 concert of the Santa Fe Symphony, and I can’t stop raving — the Bruckner Symphony No. 4 was so gorgeous. The orchestra played its best ever in my experience — it just keep getting better and better. Every section was outstanding, beautiful sound. And James Feddeck, the guest conductor, was wonderful — I hope he will be invited back so we can enjoy more from him. This is the first time this wonderful symphony has been performed in Santa Fe, and it was a real joy to experience. The students sitting next to me were rapt, and the audience went wild. The concert’s opening piece, Mozart’s Exsultate, jubilate, with Santa Fe Opera soloist

Santa Fe

A good listener I worked with Patti Bushee and Javier Gonzales during my eight years on the City Council. I respect them both, but I think Javier will be the better mayor. Javier knows that Santa Fe should be a lively community, with a focus on youth and education. He knows that the city can be a leader in renewable energy and create jobs in the process. And he has the understanding of Northern New Mexico we need to broker regional solutions to our water problems.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Feb. 1, 1914: A crowded house greeted the Dixie Quintette last evening at the Elks opera house, and the audience was very liberal with applause during the whole performance. There were several novel features during the evening; the reading from the poems of Paul Dunbar being much enjoyed as was the scene from the church service depicting the oldtime style of conducting the devotional proceedings in the anti-bellum days. Mr. Johnson was a moving figure throughout the evening’s performance and certainly kept things moving. The applause was freely given and the laughter frequent.

Rachel Hall, was lovely, too. As I got up to leave, the woman sitting next to me said that she had heard the Chicago Symphony play the Bruckner in November, and this performance was much better. Sandra Place

W

ord of Pete Seeger’s death arrived in Chicago in the middle of the night on one of the coldest days in modern history. That seemed appropriate, given the gift of warmth the man had bequeathed in his music. By some viewed as the most dangerous man in America, he was an early Communist and determined and passionate critic of everything he believed was wrong. He created a warm, expansive genre of folk music that invited young people in, immersed them in the culture of conflict and sent them out the other end full of argument, passion and song. This was troubling for America in the 1950s, a nation fresh from the big war, longing for calm and looking ahead to soulsearing conflicts over race, assassinations and Vietnam. A lifelong pacifist, Seeger was at the center of the peace and rights movements, helping make “We Shall Overcome” and “Waist Deep in the Big Muddy” anthems for a generation that was struggling against the currents. He paid a price. He was cited for contempt of Congress, blacklisted and basically forced off most stages at the height of his career. Seeger never actually mellowed, but had his regrets. He rejected Soviet Communism in the early 1980s (long after his career was crippled by blacklisting) and acknowledged he was “probably” not an atheist because he could see God in the people of the world and in every living thing. He became sweet as he aged, his old bitterness locked away in dozens of songs over time that offered no quarter to hatred, racism, brutality, warfare and pollution of his beloved Hudson River. Most of all, he gave everyone permission to sing whenever the urge entered their head. If they asked “Sing what?” he had thousands of great answers.

Too many fake fish The Kansas City Star

Y

our dinner has arrived, a nice piece of fish, delicately cooked, served perhaps over a bed of rice or, wow, maybe quinoa. Was it wild salmon you ordered? Would you be surprised and disappointed to learn that you got coho instead? As the nonprofit organization Oceana has put it: “Recent studies have found that seafood may be mislabeled as often as 25 percent to 70 percent of the time for fish like red snapper, wild salmon and Atlantic cod, disguising species that are less desirable, cheaper or more readily available.” Seafood fraud has been documented in recent years by newspapers, Consumer Reports and others. And now two senators want the Obama administration to do something about it. Sen. Edward Markey, a Democrat from Massachusetts, and Roger Wicker, a Mississippi Republican, wrote last week to President Barack Obama urging action on seafood fraud. “This fraud is ripping off consumers,” they wrote, “posing health risks by disguising species that may be harmful for sensitive groups, and harming our oceans by making it easier for illegally caught product to make its way into the U.S. market.” A big part of the problem, according to a 2009 report by the Government Accountability Office, involves a lack of coordination and communication by three agencies most responsible for seafood inspections: the Food and Drug Administration, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Customs and Border Protection. Upward of 90 percent of all seafood consumed domestically is imported, the senators noted, but the FDA inspects less than 2 percent of those products. In 2011, Oceana conducted a study of seafood in the Los Angeles market and reported that 55 of all samples it collected were mislabeled, and every fish sold with the word “snapper” in the label, 34 out of 34, was misidentified. Markey and Wicker say they will work toward solutions in Congress, but expressed hope that Obama’s agencies would do a better job of working together on the fraud. They should get on it. Fish consumers deserve accurate descriptions of what’s on their plates.

Kanye West

LOS ANGELES — Kanye West will not face criminal charges over an incident in which he apparently punched a man in a Beverly Hills chiropractor’s office. Los Angeles County prosecutors declined to file charges against the rapper because he had reached a civil settlement with the man. A document rejecting a battery case says the 18-year-old man had used a racial slur in an argument with West’s fiancée, Kim Kardashian, on Jan. 13. West was not arrested.

Banderas: Chile miners taught world a lesson By Luis Andres Henao The Associated Press

SANTIAGO, Chile ctor Antonio Banderas says the 33 Chilean miners who were trapped deep underground for 69 days in 2010 taught the world a huge lesson about the value of human life. Banderas and French actress Juliette Binoche are starring in a film that dramatizes the cave-in at the mine in Chile’s Atacama desert and the globally televised rescue of the miners that mesmerized millions across the globe. They met Friday with the miners and Chilean leader Sebastian Pinera at the presidential palace. The miners and cast, which also includes Brazilian Rodrigo Santoro and Irishman Gabriel Byrne, were received by hundreds of screaming fans outside the palace. “Millions of people, and I include myself, were glued to the TV following this story as these men held to the rocks inside that mine for nearly 70 days with the only dream of getting to see sunlight again; realizing the true importance of water, of food, the look of their children, the eyes of their wives — the value of life,” Banderas said. Their survival story sent the president’s popularity ratings soaring. The former airline magnate supervised the 22-hour rescue and bearhugged the miners on their way out. “What Antonio Banderas said is true: Chile is a better country after the miracle because I’d never seen so much unity, faith, hope and commitment,” Pinera said, remembering that on a visit to Britain, even Queen Elizabeth told him that she’d stayed up all night watching the live rescue. “The world needs hope, good news, stories that end well. And since most stories end badly, this is what people wanted: an injection of hope and faith.”

A

Banderas stars in The 33 as Mario Sepulveda, who was known as “Super Mario,” and became the public face of the miners. Binoche plays Maria Segovia, the sister of a trapped miner who became known for her outgoing personality as “the mayor” of the makeshift settlement that sprang up outside the mine. The miners said it felt like an earthquake when the shaft caved in above them on Aug. 5, 2010, filling the lower corridors of the mine with choking dust. Hours passed before they could even begin to see a few steps in front of them. For more than two weeks, no one above knew that the men had survived the collapse. The 33 men had stretched a meager 48-hour store of emergency food for 17 days, eating minuscule capsules of tuna and sips of expired milk while a narrow shaft finally reached their haven and the world learned they were alive. The small emergency shaft allowed food and water to be lowered to the miners while rescuers drilled a bigger escape hole. Finally, in the early hours of Oct. 13, the miners were hauled up one by one in a cage through 2,000 feet of rock. Back on the surface, they were welcomed like heroes. They got paid trips to the Greek Islands, visited the Real Madrid stadium in Spain and even paraded at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. But the fantasy began to fade on their return home. Many ran out of money and had to make a living in the dusty shantytowns of the desert city of Copiapo. Some began suffering from health and psychological problems. Now, they’re all banking their hopes on the Hollywood movie deal signed with Black Swan producer Mike Medavoy. The filming of The 33 is set to run from Feb. 4 to March 10 at the mine. A portion of it was already filmed at a salt mine in Colombia.

Demons get dose of joy Late rally sends Santa Fe High over Bernalillo in commanding win By Edmundo Carrillo The New Mexican

UNM faces SJSU today

t

here was something on the court at Toby Roybal Memorial Gymnasium on Friday night that has been missing from the Santa Fe High boys basketball team for a long time: Happiness. With a 65-51 lead over the Bernalillo Spartans in a District 2AAAA game, all of the Demons had smiles on their faces in what would become a 70-57 win. “I’m just really, really happy right now,” Santa Fe High sophomore guard Warren Fulgenzi said. “This win was the best feeling.” The Demons (4-16 overall, 2-1 2AAAA) have not known too many wins this season, but this recent win puts them on the winning side of the 2AAAA race, causing the Demons to finally be in good spirits. “Losing just tears your heart out,” Santa Fe High head coach David Rodriguez said. “Winning just feels good.” While the Demons won in convincing fashion, they actually trailed the Spartans until the third quarter. Bernalillo (8-13, 1-2) had a 13-6 lead over Santa Fe High at the end of the third quarter. The Spartans then opened up the second quarter on a 4-1 run to get a 19-7 lead, which prompted Rodriguez to take a timeout. After that timeout, the Demons went on a 12-4 run to cut the Spartan lead to 23-19. With just under two minutes left in the first half, Demon point guard Korwin Mueller hit a 3-pointer that tied the game at 27. Santa Fe High then went into the locker room down 33-30, but not after outscoring Bernalillo 24-20 in the second quarter. After witnessing the run the

Road trips used to be an airplane ride out of town the day before a game, a restless night’s sleep in a hotel, then a bus ride straight to the arena for the game before taking a red-eye home. Craig Neal is mixing things up. In his first year as the men’s basketball head coach at The University of New Mexico, he is taking a different tack when handling life on the road. He leaves earlier, stays later and avoids the trip home between games if the situation allows. He also eliminates cabin fever by getting his players out of the team hotel and out into the open for non-basketball activities — like tickets to an NBA game, something the Lobos did during their

guard-heavy look that featured alleverything power forward Cameron Bairstow all by his lonesome in the block. On occasion he’d share space with 7-foot freshman Obij Aget. Mostly, though, it was all about replacing Kirk’s big body with a smaller, faster, rangier version. Head coach Craig Neal said one of the biggest issues he faces when Kirk comes back isn’t the big man’s health — it’s figuring out where, exactly, he fits in. He suggested that seldom-used forward Merv Lindsay will get some more playing time even when Kirk comes back. He also said the fourguard look has been so good that he’ll probably keep using it regardless of the health of his man in the middle. So is this the end of Kirk’s honeymoon? Eh, don’t bet on it. We’ve been down this road before with Hugh Greenwood.

When the Aussie combo guard went down with his injured right wrist back in December, forcing him to the sidelines for three games, the success of guards Cullen Neal and Deshawn Delaney was so remarkable that it seemed Greenwood might become nothing more than a role player. A month later, it appears as if the Lobos might implode without Greenwood. Time will show that the same will be true of Kirk, a 15-point, 9-rebound space eater who wreaks havoc on the defensive end. In short, don’t buy into the idea that the four-guard look is here to stay. Neal will use it more often, for sure. But even he sees the true value in having Kirk on the floor as often as possible. In other words, hurry on back, Alex. Your spot is still yours — but it sure is fun experimenting when you’re gone.

SOCHI, Russia — Five days before the opening ceremony, new IOC President Thomas Bach will convene his inner cabinet to review final preparations and security plans for the Sochi Games and push his agenda for future policy changes in the Olympic movement. Bach will chair a scheduled twoday meeting of his 14-member executive board in Sochi starting Sunday, the first stage of a weeklong gathering of the International Olympic Committee on the eve of Russia’s first Winter Games. Bach, a 60-year-old German, will be overseeing his first Olympics as IOC president. The former Olympic fencer was elected in September to succeed Belgium’s Jacques Rogge, who served for 12 years. The buildup to Sochi has been overshadowed by Western criticism of Russia’s law banning gay “propaganda” and the threat of terrorist attacks by Islamic insurgents from the North Caucasus region. The pair of suicide bombings in late December that killed 34 people in Volgograd, 400 miles from Sochi, has ramped up the security worries ahead of the Olympics. The Sochi organizing committee

NEW YORK — Kevin Durant’s 30-point streak ended at 12 games when he scored 26 in just Thunder 120 30 minutes, and the Nets 95 Oklahoma City Thunder won their 10th in a row with a 120-95 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night. Serge Ibaka made all 12 shots and added 25 points and nine rebounds for the Thunder, who were so good that Durant sat the entire fourth quarter, the only way to slow him down right now. The NBA’s leading scorer finished 10 of 12 from the field, though his scoring average during his sensational January dropped from 36.6 to 35.9.

Coach K vs. Jim Boeheim in classic matchup By John Kekis

The Associated Press

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Students have been camped at Boeheimburg outside the Carrier Dome for nearly two weeks in bitter cold, with a few fans having paid for their Syracuse season tickets by making the shrewd financial decision to sell their seats for home game No. 13. The head coach simply shrugs. “I’ve coached 1,000 games. That’s too many games to get excited about one game,” said Jim Boeheim, head coach of the unbeaten No. 2 Orange. “It’s a 31-game regular season and every game is important, every game counts the same, and you have to approach it that way.” Maybe for the coaches, but not the fans. This upstate New York city is abuzz as it awaits the arrival of

Syracuse’s Rakeem Christmas dunks over Wake Forest’s Tyler Cavanaugh, left, during the first half of Wednesday’s game in Winston-Salem, N.C. CHUCK BURTON/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

No. 17 Duke —the new Georgetown on the Syracuse schedule. Yes, the Carrier Dome will be

overflowing on Saturday night on the eve of the Super Bowl, and this key Atlantic Coast Conference game is a big deal. It will feature two Hall of Fame coaches — and two good friends who have twice won Olympic gold together as colleagues — with a combined 1,914 wins: Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski (974) and Boeheim (940), the top two all-time in Division I. They’re also the only coaches in history to win more than 900 games at one school, with the 69-year-old Boeheim ahead in that category at 940 in 38 years at his alma mater and Krzyzewski at 901 in 34 years at Duke. When Syracuse faced Connecticut in the 2012 Big East quarterfinals, Boeheim and former Huskies coach Jim Calhoun had a combined 1,760 wins. “It will be an historic game,”

Krzyzewski, soon to be 67, said. “The fact that Jim and I, total, have won over 1,900 games, it’s never been done. He and I talked about it this summer because we worked together the past 10 years with USA Basketball, that every time we go on the court, it will be something special.” Despite those imposing numbers, the two coaches have squared off against one another just twice, and each has one victory. Duke won the last meeting, 80-67, in the 1998 NCAA tournament’s South Regional, and Syracuse won the first, 78-76, in the 1989 ACC-Big East Challenge in Greensboro, N.C. With Syracuse in the ACC now, the teams will double that total this season in a three-week span when the Orange visit Cameron Indoor Stadium later this month.

Joy: Demons have only 3 seniors on team Continued from Page B-1 Demons made after Rodriguez called the timeout, it would appear that he gave them a spirited speech that can only be seen in sports movies, but as a matter of fact, Rodriguez said nothing at all. Rodriguez stepped out during that 30-second timeout so that the players could talk among themselves. “Sometimes you just have to let the kids figure it out,” Rodriguez said. “I’m not sure what was said in there, but I think everyone just said enough is enough.” As a matter of fact, it was the young Fulgenzi who had something to say. “I just told the guys to keep their focus and keep plugging away like we did in practice,” Fulgenzi said. Fulgenzi backed up his talk with a 19-point performance to lead the Demons. Ten of those points came in the fourth quarter. The Demons are a young team with only three seniors, so they are still searching for a vocal leader. Since Fulgenzi is the team’s starting point guard, he said it is his responsibility to take that role. “I’m trying to be a leader,” Fulgenzi said. “At the beginning of the season I was shy because

I’m a sophomore. My coach said we need a leader out here, so I’m trying to be a vocal leader. I’m like the quarterback on the court. I have to make sure everyone knows the play and everything.” Fulgenzi and Mueller combined for 33 points on Friday and as a team, the Demons only gave up three turnovers in the second half. “They directed the offense and they led,” Rodriguez said of his two point guards. “That’s what you need point guards to do. They need to push themselves like they push others, and tonight they played like good point guards do.” The Demons started the second half on a 12-2 run to take the lead away from the Spartans. That was not just in part to the point guards, but Rodriguez said this was the best overall performance from his team this year. “We played the way good teams play,” Rodriguez said. “We played smart and we played strong. We’ve had a lot of flashes of that, but we’ve also had the complete opposite, and that’s what kept us out of the win column.” Now the Demons are in the win column, as far as the district is concerned, and things could not be better for the Demons. “Everyone is happy,” Fulgenzi said. “Even if someone had a bad game, they’re still happy.”

recent trip to Colorado. Neal insists that road trips are still about the task at hand, but he also says they’re also meant to be fun. And having fun on the road has been more enjoyable for the Lobos. Unbeaten through five games in Mountain West Conference road schedule and six games on opponent’s home floors — that excludes the loss to Kansas since the game was played in Kansas City rather than Lawrence, Kan. — the Lobos might actually prefer to be on the road instead of home in The Pit on Saturday night against San Jose State. Tipoff is scheduled for 6:07 p.m. against a Spartans team that pushed UNM (16-4, 7-1 MWC) to the brink three weeks ago. The Lobos escaped SJSU’s 3-point barrage in a 69-65 win. After playing five MWC road games in 21 days, New Mexico will hit the road for its final four MWC road stops over the course of the next 42 days. The rest of the games are in The Pit. “The schedule is pretty favorable for us and hopefully we can take advantage of that,” Neal said. If that’s the case, they’ll have to do it in the short term without center Alex Kirk.

The 7-foot junior is likely out of Saturday’s game due to a lower leg injury, an ailment that kept him on the sidelines for the last two games. “I’m going into it, you know — if he plays, great,” Neal said. “If he doesn’t, then we’ve got to go forward like we did the last two games.” Kirk was scheduled to meet with a doctor Thursday and then report to Neal on Friday. As of Friday evening, Kirk’s status was officially still listed as day to day. Neal said the team has actually grown up despite missing its man in the middle. “I think any time you can win on the road it gives you confidence,” he said. “I think it’s just good for your team. Going into those games when I knew we didn’t have Alex, there were concerns. You don’t know how your guys are going to react or

how they’re going to play.” The Lobos’ normal eight-man rotation grew to include a pair of starts from 7-foot freshman Obij Aget and key minutes from role players like Cleveland Thomas, Cullen Neal and Nick Banyard, and rarely used players like Merv Lindsay and Arthur Edwards. Neal said players are finally starting to settle into a substitution pattern that compliments the entire roster. “That first month of the season everybody’s playing for minutes and trying to figure out if they’re going to get more minutes,” he said. “But after that first month it’s basically over. You’ve got to fit into a role and do what your supposed to do. I think they’ve done that.” Filling the role of conference frontrunner is something the team also does well. Seeking their fifth MWC title in six years, the Lobos trail No. 5 San Diego State (18-1, 7-0) by a half game in the standings. Entering the weekend they are the only MWC teams unbeaten away from home. “You don’t want to hit your stride too early and you don’t want to hit your stride as late as possible,” Neal said. “I think it’s a gradual progression with our team and I think we’ve still got a big ceiling where we can reach.”

NFL SUPERBOWL XLVIII

THE NEW MEXICAN Saturday, February 1, 2014

Broncos: O-line formidable, effective Continued from Page B-1 accolades and awards and none of it means anything when you get between those lines.” No, what matters is execution and Manning has had his team on a nononsense mission for months and he’s only ratcheted up his focus and his dogged determination during preparations for the biggest game of his stellar career. Manning is the only player in this game who’s won a Super Bowl, and his top target Sunday could even be Jacob Tamme or Bubba Caldwell. He doesn’t discriminate, he distributes. He doesn’t often get duped. He deciphers. He doesn’t force passes, he finds the best matchup. And he’s got time to do it because the Broncos added size and strength to the middle of their line with the addition of right guard Louis Vasquez (6-5, 335 pounds), which moved Manny Ramirez (6-3, 320) to center next to left guard Zane Beadles (6-4, 305). They gave Manning the room to step into all those throws and he’s also quick enough in his recognition and release to usually avoid the edge rushers who might get past tackles Chris Clark or Orlando Franklin. The line’s also opened enough holes for Knowshon Moreno to capitalize on soft underneath coverages to amass 1,761 yards from scrimmage, rendering Ball a fresh-legged cohort and Hillman an afterthought. Ball famously whiffed on Seahawks blitzing linebacker Bobby Wagner in the preseason and Manning had to peel himself off the ground. That ruined his chances of winning the starting job in the Broncos backfield. And Hillman’s fumble at the goal line in that game, which Brandon Browner returned 106 yards for a Seattle score, opened the door for Moreno to become the featured back. Moreno picked up the blitzes and the first downs all season, providing balance to the Broncos’ aerial fireworks. Even though star left tackle Ryan Clady was lost for the season with a foot injury in September, Manning’s jersey hardly needed the laundry as he was sacked an average of just 1.11 times a game, the lowest takedown rate of any quarterback who started all of his team’s games. Even when they stall they don’t usually have to call upon Britton Colquitt, who’s punted just once in the last month, because the Broncos have the strongest, most accurate long-range kicker in football, Matt Prater, who kicked a record 64-yarder in icy conditions in Denver last month. Prater’s 170 points have helped Manning’s prolific offense make up for a defense that lost Von Miller and four other starters but came together down the stretch behind backups and Elway’s free agent jackpot of Terrance Knighton, Dominique RodgersCromartie, Shaun Phillips, Paris Lenon and Jeremy Mincey. Champ Bailey missed much of the season with a foot injury but he’s coming off his best game and playing in his first Super Bowl in his 15-year career. “Things do take time, and I finally got with the right group of guys,” Bailey said. “I played with some great players, but this is definitely the best team I’ve been on.” PREdIctION: BRONcOS 27, SEahaWkS 23

COMMENTARY

Defense, run game may give Seattle win By Tim Booth

The Associated Press

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. n the midst of being reclusive for most of the week leading up to his first Super Bowl, Marshawn Lynch spoke a truth about his Seattle Seahawks. What they might lack with a roster void of Super Bowl experience, they make up for with an attitude and approach that Pete Carroll has instilled from the moment he landed in Seattle. “I stay ready,” Lynch said. “So there ain’t no getting ready.” If there is an overbearing quality Carroll has produced in his four seasons in charge of the Seahawks, it’s a continuous trend of always being competitive. They don’t get blown out. They don’t get overwhelmed. They don’t succumb in the moment. They treat each week as an individual, singular event. The Seahawks are trained to operate in this manner and it’s why even against Peyton Manning, even against the most prolific, pass-happy offense in NFL history, Carroll’s team will not be astounded by what they walk into Sunday night at MetLife Stadium. “You don’t see nervousness in guys’ eyes,” Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman said. “You don’t see guys acting

any different than they would on any other day or any other week of the season. They’re going out there and following the same routine as they have all season long. You just get the sense that guys are comfortable in the situation and comfortable in the moment because you don’t really think

about the moment.” Seattle’s been on this stage once before, eight years ago with a completely different style of team that was unable to match the physicality of Pittsburgh. Thing is, this version of the Seahawks look awfully familiar to that Steelers team.

Ben Roethlisberger was in his second season as the Steelers’ quarterback, just like Russell Wilson is with Seattle. Roethlisberger was less of a passer at that time because the Steelers had a running game led by Willie Parker and Jerome Bettis that was in the top five in the NFL during the regular season. The Steelers also had a defense that was No. 4 in the league during the regular season. It might be a painful comparison for Seattle fans, but the similarities are notable. Wilson can win the game with his arm, if needed, but Lynch and the running game is always Seattle’s priority. The Seahawks defense was the best in the NFL in scoring, total yards allowed and turnovers forced. They are unlike anything Manning and the Broncos have seen this season. Denver faced only two teams all season with total defenses that finished ranked in the top 10 when the regular season concluded. “This is something that we’ve been looking forward to. Us being the No. 1 defense, them being the No. 1 offense, I think it’s fitting,” Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner said. “It’s our time to prove why we’re the No. 1 defense.” Also not to be overlooked is Seattle’s red zone defense that was the best in the NFL. It’s inevitable that Manning will move Denver’s

offense. He’s one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history because he’s been able to find quick solutions to problems defenses present. But those drives that he converted into 55 touchdown passes during the regular season will be far more difficult to achieve against the Seahawks. The Seahawks allowed 36 red zone drives during the regular season and touchdowns on only 13 of those possessions. The 132 red-zone points allowed by Seattle is the fewest by any team since 2006. That is where this game will be won. The Denver defense Wilson and Lynch will face is not on the same scale as the problems San Francisco posed in the NFC championship game and that’s without mentioning the availability of Percy Harvin and what that could add to Seattle’s offense. Meanwhile, it’s unrealistic to think Seattle will be able to stop Manning. Thinking otherwise is foolish. But while Manning will be able to lead some drives, Seattle’s defense inside the 20 is suffocating. They will force Denver to settle for field goals. Ultimately, the strength of the Seahawks is greater than the strength of the Broncos. PREdIctION: SEahaWkS 27, BRONcOS 22

Manning still has strong fan base in Indianapolis

10 Super Bowl Ads to watch

By Michael Marot

NEW YORK — Actress Scarlett Johansson gives SodaStream some sex appeal in a controversial spot. Kia revives actor Laurence Fishburne’s Matrix character Morpheus in its commercial. And cute puppies and kids abound in ads for Cheerios to Anheuser-Busch. Advertisers are planning to pull out the tools in their arsenal during Super Bowl time this Sunday, including celebrities, A-list rock bands and cinematic story lines. Here are 10 ads to watch for on Sunday. 1. Anheuser-Busch: The biggest Super Bowl advertiser’s ad in the fourth quarter shows an adorable Golden Labrador becoming enamored with one of the beermaker’s iconic Clydesdales to the tune of “Let Her Go” by Passenger. 2. General Mill’s Cheerios: The cereal maker brings back an interracial family that starred in a prior spot. This one shows a father telling his daughter that they’re going to have an addition to the family, a baby boy. Then, the little girl strongly suggests they also get a puppy. The ad airs during the first unscheduled time-out of the game. 3. Bank of America: The bank will promote its partnership with AIDS nonprofit (RED) by having music group U2 sing their new single, “Invisible.” between the first and second quarter. The song will be a free download on iTunes during the game and for the following 24 hours. Bank of America will donate $1 each time it is downloaded to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS. 4.

INDIANAPOLIS — Peyton Manning still tugs on the heartstrings of Indianapolis football fans. Friends and former teammates are happy he’s made it back to the NFL’s biggest stage, and the general public is excited to see if No. 18 can win a second Super Bowl ring this weekend, too. Many in this town just wished this incredible season had come in Colts blue rather than Broncos orange. “I think as fans of Peyton, people hoped he would stay with the same team and finish it out,” said Jeff Saturday, Manning’s longtime center. “But that wasn’t possible. Peyton wanted to still play. The Colts released him and that happens in our business. As a player, you have to move on to the next team, and he’s done what he’s supposed to do.” He’s continued to win at a recordbreaking rate. Many in Indy never doubted Manning would continue to play at this high level — if he could get healthy. But after missing the entire 2011 season to recover from a damaged nerve in his neck and facing a salary cap dilemma, Colts owner Jim Irsay made the toughest decision of his career — cutting ties with Manning and using the No. 1 draft pick to begin anew. Immediate reactions in Indy were mixed when Irsay tearfully tried to explain he wanted Manning to have another shot at the Super Bowl before his career ended, while the Colts were attempting to remain a Super Bowl contender for the next

decade with a completely new cast. So far, so good. Since drafting Andrew Luck, the Colts have posted back-to-back 11-win seasons and reached the playoffs twice. Manning, meanwhile, has posted two straight 13-win seasons, just completed perhaps the greatest regular season by any quarterback in league history and will make his third Super Bowl start Sunday in New York. Indy fans aren’t surprised by Manning’s success, especially after watching him turn this basketball bastion into a football-friendly town. “I think everyone is pulling for him,” said Joe Gray, a 59-year-old Colts season ticket holder who was impressed by the standing ovation Manning got when he returned to Lucas Oil Stadium in October. “I’m not saying I don’t like Luck, I just wish Peyton was still here.” Gray finds himself in a crowded group.

The nonprofit was unhappy she was linked with SodaStream, which operates in Israeli settlements in the West Bank of Palestine. Oxfam is opposed to that. 5.

Nestle’s Butterfinger: A suggestive teaser ad showed a couple, “Chocolate” and “Peanut Butter,” in ’70s-style couple’s therapy talking about the need for “change” and “excitement.” The actual ad in the third quarter will have a related theme, and Butterfinger is expected to introduce its Peanut Butter Cups with some tongue-in-cheek double entendres. 7. Beats Music: Ellen DeGeneres reimagines the Goldilocks and The Three Bears fairy tale in this ad running in the third quarter that introduces Beats Music, a streaming music service. 8. Wonderful Pistachios: The snack producer showcases comedian Stephen Colbert running amok in two 15-second ads in the second quarter. 9. Kia: In the carmaker’s thirdquarter ad to introduce its K900 luxury sedan, Laurence Fishburne reprises his Matrix role as Morpheus and displays some surprising operatic skills. 10. Chrysler: The automaker is bound to surprise. Always mum ahead of the game, Chrysler has produced some of the best loved and most remembered spots during the big game, like Eminem’s “Imported from Detroit” ad in 2011. Look for another surprising spot or two this year.

The two became fast friends, even as they battled for the starter’s job at training camp the following fall. “We got along great,” recalled Prater, who kicked for three other clubs before gaining a foothold in Denver in 2007. “He was a real professional. We were competing for a job and then we’d go get dinner. Just a fun guy to be around.” Not coincidentally, the two ran into each other again on Wednesday at MetLife Stadium. Hauschka had just finished practice as Prater was coming in. Their respective scouting reports revealed a lot about how they view their craft. “I’m not one to try and overanalyze,” Prater said. “It was nice. The conditions were pretty good and the ball was flying pretty good.” Asked whether he was following the weather forecasts for Sunday, Prater leaned back in his chair. “Everyone else has been keeping me updated,” he laughed.

MIXED MARTIAL ARTS

Anti-gay law protests draw interest Faber wants to By David Crary

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Despite seven months of international outcry, Russia’s law restricting gay-rights activity remains in place. Yet the eclectic protest campaign has heartened activists in Russia and caught the attention of its targets — including organizers and sponsors of the Sochi Olympics that open Feb. 7. Over the past two weeks, two major sponsors, Coca-Cola and McDonald’s, have seen some of their Sochi-related social media campaigns commandeered by gay-rights supporters who want the companies to condemn the law. Several activists plan to travel to Sochi, hoping to team up with sympathetic athletes to protest the law while in the Olympic spotlight. And on Friday, a coalition of 40 human-rights and gay-rights groups from the U.S., Western Europe and Russia — including Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and the Human Rights Campaign — released an open letter to the 10 biggest Olympic sponsors, urging them to denounce the law and run ads promoting equality for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender people. “LGBT people must not be targeted with violence or deprived of their ability to advocate for their own equality,” the letter said. “As all eyes turn toward Sochi, we ask you to stand with us.” The law, signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin in July, bans pro-gay “propaganda” that could be accessible to minors — a measure viewed by activists as forbidding almost any public expression of gay-rights sentiment. The law cleared parliament virtually unopposed and has extensive public support in Russia. Since July, when they launched a boycott of Russian vodka, activists have pressed

out forcibly against it. Similarly, activists made use of an online “I’d like to share a Coke with …” promotion to circulate images of Coke cans with labels such as “Gaybashers” and “Haters.” The gay-rights group Queer Nation posted a video online interspersing images of embattled Russian gay-rights demonstrators into Coke’s 1970s TV ad featuring the song “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing.” Coke then posted a clip of the original ad on its Facebook page, drawing a flood of negative comments from gay-rights supporters. Coke has responded Demonstrators in August 2013 staged a theatrical play in with declarations of support which gays were grabbed by others wearing masks of Rusfor diversity and inclusiveness, sian President Vladimir Putin, during a London protest which are themes of Coke’s new against Russia’s new anti-gay law banning ‘propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations.’ ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO Super Bowl advertising.

IOC leaders are concerned about the construction delays and other organizational issues dogging Rio’s preparations, underlined by Bach’s visit to Brazil last week to remind organizers they have “no day to lose.” Sochi and Rio organizers will also deliver updates to the full IOC general assembly when it holds its three-day session in Sochi starting Wednesday. Most of the session, however, will be set aside for debate on Bach’s vision for the future of the IOC and the Olympics. Bach has launched his “Olympic Agenda 2020” to push through possible changes in the bidding process, the sports program, the 70-year age limit for IOC members and other areas. The IOC is also considering creating an Olympic TV channel. The board members held a four-day “brainstorming session” convened by Bach in Montreux, Switzerland, in December. They will now put the issues up for wider discussion by the 100-plus IOC members, with recommendations to be submitted for approval at an extraordinary session on Dec. 6-7 in Monaco.

cash in on latest UFC title shot By Dan Gelston

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Urijah Faber walked out on a Madison Square Garden stage in a Wes Welker jersey, the UFC’s fun nod to that other “super” show this weekend. Peyton Manning would have been a more appropriate choice. Like Manning, Faber is a former world champion and about as good as it gets in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Walking out of the cage on top? That’s where it gets tricky for the laidback Californian. Faber has a knack for losing MMA title fights, yet he’s back in the octagon Saturday night with another shot at the belt. Faber fights 135-pound champ Renan Barao at UFC 169 at the Prudential Center, just a few miles away from MetLife Stadium, the site of Sunday’s Super Bowl. He’s 0 for 5 as the challenger in title bouts since 2008 — a measure of both his inability to rise to the occasion, yet proof of his tenacity to fight back toward the top. “Look at any other sport in the world. Who just quits if they didn’t get No. 1?” Faber asked. “The reason I keep getting into these title fights is because no one else can beat me. I’ve had fights to get into these positions and I win. And I win decisively.” He sure does, including a stout 4-0 record in 2013. He choked out Michael McDonald just six weeks ago on a UFC on Fox card, and was pressed into service for Saturday night when injury-prone Dominick Cruz pulled out with a torn groin. “I’m kind of used to Cruz not fighting these days,” Faber said. Another UFC card going off without Cruz seems almost as automatic as one with Faber chasing another championship. Faber lost decisions to Cruz (2011) and the first Barao bout (2012) to extend his title-fight losing streak. “I figured I’d fight him again,” Faber said. “You start thinking about things right after the fight, the things that were difficult, the things you had success with. But I haven’t been dwelling on it, that’s for sure. But looking again and recapping his fighting style is something I’ve had to do.” Faber’s most notable championship reigns came with World Extreme Cagefighting. But “The California Kid” knows he needs a UFC championship to cement his status as one of the best in the world. “Saturday’s a defining moment in his career,” UFC President Dana White said. Jose Aldo defends his 145pound championship against Ricardo Lamas and Alistair Overeem fights Frank Mir in a heavyweight bout to headline the fifth major UFC card at the Prudential Center since it opened in 2007.

The reason “ I keep getting

into these title fights is because no one else can beat me. I’ve had fights to get into these positions and I win. And I win decisively.” Urijah Faber The UFC carved out a big slice of mainstream success in the New York area this week, with billboards and buses in Times Square promoting the show, and main event fighters were welcomed at the NFL’s media day. “Anybody who knows the sport knows what great fights these are,” White said. “Do I think we’re going to do 1 million buys this weekend? No, but I think we’re going to do well.” Overeem and Mir could have main evented a PPV a few years back, but both heavyweights are fighting just to stay in UFC. Mir, a former heavyweight champion, hasn’t won a bout in more than two years and has talked openly about moving into a broadcasting career. Overeem is riding a twofight losing streak and is far removed from his prime and his last big win over Brock Lesnar at UFC 141 in 2011. He’s not not ready to quit. “Fighting in the UFC is the biggest stage, so there’s always pressure to perform,” Overeem said. “I’ll keep fighting. What else can I do?” Only 34, Mir points to aging fighters like Dan Henderson as a reason to keep going in the cage for a few more years. “If I was losing to the No. 20 guy who just got to UFC, then after he beats me he can’t win another fight,” Mir said, “that would weigh on me.” Mir said there was no shame in losing to Junior dos Santos, Daniel Cormier, and Josh Barnett. And if Mir has to fight elsewhere, even the selfproclaimed UFC lifer would consider his options. White isn’t quite ready to proclaim Mir-Overeem a good ol’ fashioned “loser leaves town” bout. “Everybody keeps asking me if those guys are done, if one of them are getting cut,” he said. “What if the fight is a [great] fight? I’ll keep them both. But they need to perform on Saturday night.”

I have my thoughts, but SAN FRANCISCO — Buster I’ll keep them Posey wants all players proto myself.” tected from hard collisions at Posey, home plate and serious injuries, the 2010 NL catchers and baserunners alike. Rookie of the Whether Major League Base- Buster Posey Year, tore three ball implements a new rule ligaments in banning home-plate collisions his left ankle in time for the 2014 season, and broke a bone in his lower don’t expect San Francisco’s star leg when he run over by the catcher to be at the forefront to Marlins’ Scott Cousins on May speak up on such topics.

By Janie McCauley The Associated Press

“I don’t think they’re close to a resolution on that,” Giants general manager Brian Sabean said. “I’d find a hard time thinking it’ll be instituted for the ’14 season. It’s being dealt with at the Major League Baseball level.” Giants third base coach Tim Flannery insists he won’t alter his approach much when it comes to sending runners on a shallow fly ball. “Just because a guy can’t run him over doesn’t mean they can’t slide hard, feet first, late,” he said. If the rule is put in place — baseball owners and the players’ union are working on a draft — Posey said he isn’t sure what he would expect regarding baserunners charging his way. “I don’t know, I guess that’s still up in the air right now,” Posey said. “I think that’s probably some of the hang up, making sure all parties are protected.”

Giants right fielder Hunter Pence noted Friday he gets paid to score runs regardless of who’s in his way, so such a rule would force players to quickly make some adjustments. His proposal: A lane for baserunners they would use in the path to home. “If they could make lanes, where if the catcher’s in front of the plate, the runner could be in danger if he can’t go through a catcher who is sticking his leg out,” Pence said. “It’s almost insane to have a catcher standing in front of home plate like a sitting duck and a baserunner just plowing him. Even in football, they have pads on and they don’t just let them hit the guy trying to catch the football. There needs to be a safe spot for the catcher but also the catcher also can make the decision to be in the danger zone and the runner has to have a zone he can go through.”

Reader anguishes over lost romance Dear Annie: I am 53 and am in love with a 33-year-old man. We’ve been together for three years, but the problem is that he says he just wants to be friends. I care about him a lot. I think there may be someone else, but I’m not sure. I don’t want to lose him from my life. What should I do? Should I tell him how I feel? Should I ask him whether he’s seeing another woman? I need answers. — Dee Dear Dee: When a man tells you he “just wants to be friends,” please believe him. He is no longer interested in you romantically. Whether or not he has someone else is irrelevant. If you want him in your life, it will have to be on his terms as a friend and nothing more. If that is not possible for you, please say goodbye altogether, no matter how difficult. There’s no point moping around when it’s over. You’ll only make yourself more miserable. We recommend hot cocoa with your favorite movie, followed by a luxurious bath and commiserating with good friends. Dear Annie: You have helped perpetuate an erroneous but widely held belief by printing a letter that referred to an ostrich burying its head in the sand. The misconception exists because an ostrich sleeps with its head resting on the ground. Viewed from a distance, the head may appear to be buried, but it most definitely is not. If an ostrich really did bury its head, it would suffocate. — La Crescenta, Calif. Dear La Crescenta: Thanks for providing an opportunity to get into an obscure but charming subject. According to the American Ostrich Association, a male ostrich will dig a hole for the nest that can be up to 8 feet wide and 3 feet deep, so that predators cannot see the eggs from a distance. Male and female ostriches take turns sitting on the eggs in that lowered position and blend into the horizon. When the birds periodically turn the eggs over with their beaks, it

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Your imagination will travel around some wild corners, and it could surprise you. Communication sizzles. Tonight: Opt for something different. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Pressure builds within your immediate circle. Listen to your inner voice about how to release tension. Once you do, you might choose to deal with the problem. Tonight: At home. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Pick up the phone and call a dear friend to catch up on his or her news. You might think of this person often, but you don’t act on it. Tonight: Hang with friends. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Watch a tendency to overindulge and get a little wild. You might want to let off some steam, so choose a favorite winter sport. Tonight: Your treat. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH All eyes turn to you, as you seem to be a people magnet today! You might want to choose your company with care; realize that you have many choices. Tonight: Be imaginative. Jacqueline Bigar

Cryptoquip

Chess quiz

The Cryptoquip is a substitution cipher in which one letter stands for another. If you think that X equals O, it will equal O throughout the puzzle. Single letters, short words and words using an apostrophe give you clues to locating vowels. Solution is by trial and error. © 2013 by King Features Syndicate, Inc.

WHITE HAS A CRUSHER Hint: Better than Qxc8. Solution: 1. Qb5! (threatens 2. Qh5 mate, as well as 2. Qg5 mate). If 1. … Kxg6, 2. Qf5ch! Kh6 3. Qh5 mate.

Today in history Today is Saturday, Feb. 1, the 32nd day of 2014. There are 333 days left in the year. Today’s highlight in history: On Feb. 1, 1960, four black college students began a sit-in protest at a Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, N.C., where they’d been refused service.

Hocus Focus

can appear as if their heads are buried in the sand. Now we know. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Joining the Letting Go Club.” My father was Mr. Charming. What wasn’t seen was the physical, verbal and emotional abuse. He expected to continue the control even after we were grown and then with our children. He worked hard to pit the siblings against each other. It was horrible. I have nothing to do with him. My in-laws are blatantly biased toward my husband’s sister. She was involved with drugs, has a criminal record and treats her parents terribly. Yet they think the sun rises and sets on her. They have totally enabled her and given her tons of money. My husband never caused them trouble, paid his own way for college and visits them regularly. They can’t seem to bother with him. My husband has gotten to the point where he is done with them. And finally, there is this perspective. We are in our mid-40s with three kids. We have a difficult time understanding today’s parenting style, unless it is to copy the way they were raised: the idea that their kids can do no wrong and never need be held accountable, and that kids should only do whatever makes them happy. I actually heard a friend tell her daughters not to worry about anyone else’s feelings, and they should care only about their own happiness and doing whatever they want. It’s no wonder this makes for selfish, self-centered people. These kids have trouble maintaining relationships. Once things don’t go their way, they walk. I heard a person say about his family, “They don’t bring anything to the table for me, so why bother?” Parents have created these selfish kids. They should not be surprised by the outcome. — Another Perspective
