Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration rushed the 25-year, multimillion contract with The Downs at Albuquerque to run a racetrack and casino at the state fairgrounds in 2011, pressured New Mexico State Fair commissioners to vote for the contract and has, in effect “neutered” the fair commission.

Retention nixed from education bill, but Dems seek additional changes By Milan Simonich The New Mexican

State Rep. Mary Helen Garcia, a retired teacher and school administrator, on Monday dramatically softened her own bill that called for mass retention of third-graders who do not read proficiently. Garcia amended the bill so that forced retentions no longer are part of the bill. Instead, the main emphasis would be on screening assessments of children and then providing extra help for struggling readers in kindergarten

through third grade. Even so, Democrats who control the House Education Committee said parts of Garcia’s bill were flawed and asked for informal meetings to rework it. Garcia, D-Las Cruces, agreed to huddle with Rep. Mimi Stewart, who chairs the committee, on possible refinements. Under current state law, parents have a one-time veto over retention of a student. After that, schools have full power to hold back a child.

This time, a more gruesome scene awaited officers, who entered his apartment by unlocking the door with the landlord’s spare key and cutting the security chain that kept the door closed from inside.

Administration delays insurance mandate for some employers Latest move changes compliance rules for midsize businesses and those with more than 100 employees By Robert Pear

scorching attacks on the law have become a central theme in many of this year’s midterm election campaigns. The “employer mandate,” which was originally supposed to take effect last month, had already been delayed to Jan. 1, 2015, and now the administration says that employers with 50 to 99 employees will not have to comply until 2016 — allowing Democrats to placate business concerns and pushing the issue well

beyond this year’s midterm elections. In addition, the administration said the requirement would be put into effect gradually for employers with 100 or more employees. Employers in this category will need to offer coverage to 70 percent of full-time employees in 2015 and 95 percent in 2016 and later years, or they will be subject to tax penalties. “Today’s final regulations phase in the standards to ensure that larger

employers either offer quality affordable coverage or make an employer responsibility payment starting in 2015,” said Mark J. Mazur, the assistant Treasury secretary for tax policy. The purpose of the penalty, he said, is to help offset the cost to taxpayers of providing coverage or subsidies to people who cannot get affordable health insurance at work.

NATION&WORLD House GOP ties military pensions to the increase in the debt limit

In brief

The Associated Press

PHOENIX — A Mexican man has been sentenced to 30 years in federal prison in the 2010 killing of a U.S. Border Patrol agent that revealed the botched gunsmuggling investigation known as Operation Fast and Furious. Manuel Osorio-Arellanes was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty in Brian Terry’s shooting death. The gunfight erupted as Osorio-Arellanes and four other Mexican men, who are accused of sneaking into the country to rob marijuana smugglers, approached Terry and three other agents. Two rifles bought by a gunsmuggling ring being monitored in the Fast and Furious investigation were found at the firefight’s aftermath. Authorities who conducted Fast and Furious have faced criticism for letting suspected gun buyers for a smuggling ring walk away from Arizona shops with weapons, rather than arresting them and seizing the guns.

WASHINGTON — House Republican leaders Monday unveiled a plan to reverse a recently passed cut to military pensions as the price for increasing the government’s borrowing cap, but it received a rocky reception from skeptical conservatives. GOP leaders briefed rank-and-file GOP lawmakers at a meeting in the Capitol on Monday evening in hopes of passing it on Wednesday before departing Washington for a weeklong vacation. It’s unclear whether the vote would still go forward after it was rejected by many conservatives. “Right now we’ve got a debt ceiling bill that increases spending, which is diametrically 180 degrees opposite of what we were battling over just two years ago,” said Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala. The GOP bill would extend Treasury’s borrowing authority for at least another year, repeal the curb passed in December on pension inflation adjustments for military retirees under the age of 62, and extend automatic cuts to Medicare and other programs to 2024, another year than presently scheduled. It’s not clear that the plan will fly with Democrats. Their votes would be needed to help pass the measure since some Republicans refuse to vote to raise the debt ceiling under any circumstances.

Pentagon pressed for assault records WASHINGTON — The Pentagon is coming under pressure to give Congress detailed information on the handling of sex-crime cases in the armed forces following an Associated Press investigation that found a pattern of inconsistent judgments and light penalties for sexual assaults at U.S. bases in Japan. Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, who’s led efforts in Congress to address military sexual crimes, is pressing the Defense Department to turn over case information from four major U.S. bases: Fort Hood in Texas, Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia, the Marine Corps’ Camp Pendleton in California, and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. Gillibrand, who leads the Senate Armed Services personnel panel, wrote Monday to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel asking for “all reports and allegations of rape, forcible sodomy, sexual assault, sex in the barracks, adultery and attempts, conspiracies or solicitations to commit these crimes,” for the last five years.

HOLLANDE VISITS MONTICELLO

President Barack Obama watches as French President Francois Hollande, left, looks over items on the desk during a tour of Thomas Jefferson’s office at Monticello on Monday in Charlottesville, Va. A formal arrival ceremony, with trumpet fanfares and a 21-gun salute, awaits Hollande at the White House on Tuesday before meetings with Obama about Iran, Syria and shared economic interests. But the French president arrived without a female companion, following his very public split with longtime partner Valerie Trierweiler. PABLO MARTINEZ MONSIVAIS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

citizen. The Pentagon drones that could are barred from the country where he’s hiding, and the Justice Department has not yet finished building a case against him. Four U.S. officials said the American suspected terrorist is in a country that refuses U.S. military action on its soil and that has proved unable to go after him. And Obama’s new policy says American suspected terrorists overseas can only be killed by the military, not the CIA, creating a policy conundrum for the White House.

More people in Homs evacuated BEIRUT — A Syrian Red Crescent official says around 300 more people were evacuated Monday from besieged rebel-held neighborhoods of Syria’s thirdlargest city, Homs. Khaled Erksoussi, the Red Crescent’s head of operations, says the group was notified that a ceasefire in Homs that ended Sunday has been extended “far a few days.” The day’s evacuations brought to around 1,000 the number of people brought out of Homs since Friday, when the truce began. The Red Crescent also has delivered some food aid into the districts, despite shelling, though none was taken in on Monday, Erksoussi said. Government forces have been besieging the rebel-held districts in the city for months, cutting off supplies. The truce to let in aid and let out women, children and elderly was brokered by the U.N.

‘Dumb Starbucks’ work of comedian LOS ANGELES — It was a caffeine-charged Hollywood whodunit: Just whose bright idea was the “Dumb Starbucks” coffee shop that popped up and started serving free drinks from the corner of an otherwise uncelebrated strip mall? After several days of speculation, the big reveal came Monday: The buzz-generating shop was a comedian’s publicity stunt. Keeping a straight face, Canadian comic Nathan Fielder told a crowd he was pursuing the “American dream” — before acknowledging that he planned to use the bit on his Comedy Central show Nathan For You. Earlier in the day, and for much of the weekend, a line from the store wound alongside the parking lot and up the block. Some patrons snapped pictures in front of a green awning and mermaid logo that is familiar — except that the word “Dumb” is prominently featured. They weren’t coming for gourmet fare: Their descriptions of the coffee ranged from “horrible” to “bitter,” and one parent said his daughter complained that the hot chocolate was like water.

VATICAN CITY — It was the quietest of announcements that had the effect of a thunder-clap on the Catholic world: A year ago today, Pope Benedict XVI said in a voice so soft that cardinals strained to hear, that he was becoming the first pontiff to resign in more than half a millennium. On the eve of the anniversary, Benedict’s longtime private secretary credited his boss’ stunning decision with opening the way to the “enormous impact” Pope Francis is having on the church and world at large. Monsignor Georg Gaenswein’s comments sent out a message of continuity between the awkward, bookish Benedict and his charismatic, super-star successor, the first Jesuit pope and the first pontiff from Latin America. It also may suggest that Benedict approves of the dramatic changes that Francis is bringing about within the church — even if many seem to go against the grain of his more restrained papacy. “We are all seeing the impact that Pope Francis is having on the world, not just the faithful in the church but in the world — it’s an enormous impact — and this impact was also facilitated by Pope Benedict in resigning,” Gaenswein told Vatican Television. “He opened a possibility that until then wasn’t there, and we can see that Pope Francis has taken this situation in hand and we’re delighted.” Gaenswein is in the historically unique situation of serving two popes: While he remains Benedict’s secretary, lives with him in his retirement home in the Vatican gardens and takes daily walks with him each afternoon, Gaenswein also is the head of Pope Francis’ household, arranging his schedule and appearing regularly with him at his Wednesday general audiences and other public events. Gaenswein was by Benedict’s side on that Monday morning, Feb. 11, 2013, when, during the course of a routine announcement of new saints on a Vatican holiday, Benedict announced that he no longer had the “strength of mind and body” to be pope and would retire at the end of the month. Francis was elected about a month later and has dazzled the world with his simple style and a tone of welcoming that has thrilled progressive Catholics and troubled conservatives. He has since been named “Person of the Year” by Time and has injected new life into an institution that was crumbling following a decade of scandal over sexual abuse, and more recently over the theft of Benedict’s private papers by his own butler.

The Associated Press

On at least 150 flights, U.S. commercial passenger and cargo planes have either landed at the wrong airport or started to land and realized their mistake in time. because the information didn’t match what they were seeing out their windows — a runway straight ahead. “You’ve got these runway lights, and you are looking at them, and they’re saying: ‘Come to me, come to me. I will let you land.’ They’re like the sirens of the ocean,” said Michael Barr, a former Air Force pilot who teaches aviation safety at the University of Southern California. Using NASA’s Aviation Safety Reporting System, along with news accounts and reports sent to other federal agencies, the AP tallied 35 landings

and 115 approaches or aborted landing attempts at wrong airports by commercial passenger and cargo planes over more than two decades. The tally doesn’t include every event. Many aren’t disclosed to the media, and reports to the NASA database are voluntary. The Federal Aviation Administration investigates wrong airport landings and many near-landings, but those reports aren’t publicly available. FAA officials turned down a request by the AP for access to those records, saying some may include

information on possible violations of safety regulations by pilots and might be used in an enforcement action. NASA, on the other hand, scrubs its reports of identifying information to protect confidentiality, including names of pilots, controllers and airlines. While the database is operated by the space agency, it is paid for by the FAA and its budget has been frozen since 1997, said database director Linda Connell. As a result, fewer incident reports are being entered even though the volume of reports has soared, she said. The accounts that are available paint a picture of repeated close calls, especially in parts of the country where airports are situated close together with runways similarly angled, including Nashville and Smyrna in Tennessee, Tucson and DavisMonthan Air Force Base in Arizona, and several airports in South Florida.

The militants are currently battling for control of mainly Sunni areas of western Iraq in a key test of the Shiite-led government’s ability to maintain security more than two years after the withdrawal of U.S. troops. While the Iraqi army has been attacking insurgent training camps in the vast desert of western Anbar province near the Syrian border, it is unusual to find such a camp in the center of the country, just 60 miles north of the capital. The discovery shows that “the terrorist groups have made a strong comeback in Iraq and that the security problems are far from over, and things are heading from bad to worse,” said Hamid al-Mutlaq, a member of the parliament’s security and defense committee. The militants belonged to a network now known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an extremist group that

Security forces rushed to the area after hearing the thunderous blast and arrested 12 wounded militants along with another 10 trying to flee. Authorities searched two houses and a garage in the orchard, finding seven car bombs as well as several explosive belts and roadside bombs. The cars did not have license plates. Bomb experts then started the work of defusing the devices.

THE NEW MEXICAN Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Marine: Tafoya’s home was filled with memorabilia from military Continued from Page A-1 “A foul smell came from within the residence,” according to a police report, and although the apartment’s front room was especially tidy, Tafoya was found laying on his bed, dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. His home was filled with military memorabilia from Tafoya’s 20-year career as a U.S. Marine Corps helicopter mechanic. Among his assignments was caring for the helicopters used by two U.S. presidents. A T-shirt folded to reveal the words “R.I.P. The U.S. Constitution,” as well as Tafoya’s passport, military ID, driver’s license and Social Security card, were arranged carefully on a small table draped in black cloth. In the center of the table was a clipping of a 2013 Santa Fe New Mexican story with the headline, “Program ensures that no veteran ‘dies alone.’ ” “The way it was displayed, you could tell that [his military service] was his pride,” said Joe Chavez, an employee of Servpro, a speciality cleaning company that was called in to clean Tafoya’s apartment after his body was taken away. “It hit close to home,” said Chavez, whose own father and stepfather served in the military. Since then, Chavez and a group of co-workers, a chaplain, a funeral home employee, VFW members and others have organized a funeral for Tafoya with military honors. He will be buried at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 11, at the Santa Fe National Cemetery in a formal ceremony that will include the presentation of colors, a 21-gun-salute and a police escort. Now, a man who, by most accounts, kept to himself in life has gained a community in death. An investigator from the state Office of the Medical Investigator pronounced Tafoya dead the day his body was found, though the office’s operations director, Amy Boule, said there are so many factors that affect the rate at which a body decomposes, it’s impossible to know how long Tafoya had been deceased. A note addressed to apartment manager Jon Jayet said simply: “Trash it, sell it, there is no one to claim it.” After Tafoya’s body was transported for an autopsy, Servpro was called in to clean the apartment. “It was really, really emotional,” said Chavez, a selfdescribed “military brat.” “The thing that was really heartbreaking was that he had been there for three weeks and nobody knew he had taken his life.” Chavez was especially struck by the table with Tafoya’s identification cards and other items. “He left it that way to make a statement,” Chavez said. “He was very upset with his government, the way I saw it. I felt that he felt our government just pushes soldiers to the side and their service means basically shit, is what I perceived from that. I think after he retired, our military let him down and he was disappointed. It was basically like an F-you to our government — a thanks for nothing.” The medical examiner located Anita Sweeney, a cousin, to claim Tafoya’s body. Sweeney said her cousin was born in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 30, 1953. She said “Tim,” as he was called, had a “horrible” childhood. Both of his parents died before he turned 18, and he came to Santa Fe after that to live with with his aunt, Sweeney’s mother. “He just didn’t adjust well,” Sweeney said. “The environment he grew up in was just not a healthy environment. It didn’t allow him to develop good communication skills, so he was very quiet and he suffered depression through the years.” Tafoya dropped out of high school, got his GED diploma and joined the Marines. He never saw combat, Sweeney said, but he became a helicopter mechanic who worked on Marine One, the chopper that carried Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton during their administrations. He also traveled to Japan and Italy, among other places, during his military career, she said. Tafoya was married for a short time, Sweeney said, but she never met his wife. The couple divorced without having any children. Tafoya’s last post was Kaneohe, Hawaii, according to his discharge papers dated Dec. 31, 1998. After leaving the

Marines, he came back to Santa Fe. Sweeney said her mother and father, both now deceased, allowed Tafoya to live in an apartment in a family compound on Delgado Street for a few years, but he cut all ties with the family about 15 years ago. “He wrote them a letter saying he didn’t want anything to do with family,” Sweeney said, “and he moved to the apartment … where they found him, and nobody every heard from him again.” After Sweeney learned of her cousin’s death, she contacted his half-sister in Maryland, who, Sweeney said, had not seen him in about seven years and had neither desire or means to make the arrangements for his funeral. Tafoya’s sister declined through Sweeney to be interviewed for this story. When Sweeney went to her cousin’s apartment to deal with

his belongings, she also saw a message in the way he had arranged his belongings before taking his own life. “His walls were lined with Marine stuff,” she said. “All his life with the Marines was on all the walls in the living room, the dining room, the bedroom. The clothes were folded just like you would fold your clothes in the Marines.” Before visiting Tafoya’s home, she said, she began to make funeral arrangements for his burial with Rivera Family Funeral Home. But after seeing The New Mexican article about the Forgotten Heroes program that Tafoya had left on the table, she reconsidered. The story was about a program that arranges military funerals for indigent and homeless veterans. “With the article so prominently displayed … I felt like that was him saying, ‘I’m a forgotten hero. This is what I want,’ ” she

said. “My feeling was that he didn’t want family involved and he wanted to go in this way.” In order for Tafoya to qualify to be buried through the Forgotten Heroes program, he needed to be homeless or unclaimed, Sweeney said, “so I unclaimed him.” But when Chavez and Raymond Rivera, a funeral service specialist at Rivera Family Funeral Home, learned that Tafoya’s cremated remains might sit in storage for two years before he could be buried, they decided to arrange a funeral for him themselves. “No Marine, no soldier should just be tossed to the side when they fought for our rights,” Chavez said. “I felt it was my duty to honor his last wishes. So my boss said, ‘Let’s do this, we’ll make sure this gentleman gets what he deserves.’ ” Over the past several weeks, Servpro and Rivera, who is not

related to the owners of the funeral home, have worked together to arrange a military funeral for Tafoya. Along the way, they learned that Tafoya worked as a carrier for The Santa Fe New Mexican for 15 years before quitting in November, telling the paper’s home delivery manager, Robert Martinez, that his truck had broken down. Martinez said his former employee was a “pretty solitary guy.” The one time he saw a personal side to Tafoya, Martinez said, was when he drove to a newspaper drop spot at the DeVargas Center early one morning and found out it was Tafoya who had been leaving food and water for stray cats in the area. Tafoya was found with a dead cat on the bed beside him, according to a police report. No other details about how the cat died were in the report.

Mechanic Craig Woodward, who owns a repair shop in town, called Tafoya “a good guy.” “I got along with him great. I wished he would have opened up to me more,” he said. “We could have got him some help or something if we had known.” It was Woodward who called police on New Year’s Eve to check on Tafoya. And before he died, Tafoya sent Woodward a letter giving him his truck, which was sitting at Woodward’s shop in need of minor repairs. Santa Fe Police Department chaplain José Villegas, who will be accepting the folded flag at Tafoya’s funeral, said, “I’m claiming him as someone from the community. He’s a stranger to me. But I know he is a veteran, a Marine, like me, and Marines are taught never to leave their dead.” Contact Phaedra Haywood at 986-3068 or phaywood@ sfnewmexican.com.

gling families be expected to?” That theme was echoed by many Republicans, who say it is unfair for the White House to grant a dispensation to employers but not to individuals and families. Democrats see the individual mandate as more important to the operation of the law. But lawmakers from both parties have repeatedly raised concerns over the president’s waiving provisions of the law unilaterally. J. Mark Iwry, deputy assistant Treasury secretary for health policy, said the administration had broad “authority to grant transition relief” under a section of the Internal Revenue Code that directs the Treasury secretary to “prescribe all needful rules and regulations for the enforcement” of tax obligations. This authority has often been used to postpone the application of laws that would cause “unreasonable administrative burdens or costs” to taxpayers, Iwry said. Under the law, larger employers may be subject to tax penalties if they do not offer “minimum essential coverage” to

employees who work at least 30 hours a week, on average. Larger companies have, for many years, been more likely to offer coverage than smaller ones. The Treasury said that companies with 50 to 99 employees accounted for 7 percent of the private sector workforce, while businesses with 100 or more workers accounted for 66 percent. Most companies with 100 or more employees already offer health benefits to at least some of their workers. Businesses with fewer than 50 employees account for nearly 28 percent of private sector employees, but 96 percent of all private employers, the Treasury said. Paul M. Hamburger, a lawyer who advises employers at the Proskauer law firm, said: “The bottom line is that Obamacare is not going away. The administration is providing another one-year delay, until 2016, for some employers. But they have to take the law seriously and figure out ways to comply. The administration did not provide the relief sought by employers in some high-turnover industries like restaurants and retail.”

In response to concerns expressed by lawmakers from both parties, the administration said that local government agencies would generally not have to provide health insurance to “bona fide volunteers” who work as firefighters or emergency medical technicians. The administration said it was still trying to figure out how to count the hours worked by certain types of employees, including part-time college instructors who are paid for teaching a certain number of classes or courses. Until further guidance is issued, Treasury officials said, colleges may assume that such “adjunct faculty” members spend 75 minutes a week outside the classroom, preparing lectures or grading examinations, for each hour teaching in the classroom. Federal officials said they were also providing some relief to employers of seasonal employees. Those who normally work a half-year or less will generally not be considered full-time employees, the administration said. Jonathan Weisman contributed to this report.

Changes: Retention bill alive in Senate Continued from Page A-1 Gov. Susana Martinez says this system has fostered a culture of “social promotion,” in which unprepared kids are passed on to the next grade. Martinez, a Republican, favors mandatory retention of third-graders who do not read proficiently. Stewart, D-Albuquerque, said retention rates for kids in kindergarten through second grade now range from 2 percent to 4 percent. In third grade, the numbers dip to 1 percent to 2 percent, she said. Garcia stripped mandatory retention from her bill after listening to fellow education professionals who said it would do more harm than good. Stewart said that, with the concession, Garcia’s bill essentially makes no changes to the existing law on student retention. Stewart is an opponent of blanket retention of students, but she said she still did not like other parts of the bill. For instance, it removes math as a measure of a child’s academic proficiency and it makes a standardized test the sole barometer of reading proficiency. “Our math scores are lower than they are in reading,” Stewart said, objecting to the rifle-shot emphasis in the bill. Stewart also said that a broader range of assessments ought to be used to gauge reading proficiency. Republicans on the House Education Committee supported Garcia’s original call for forced retentions. “Our students can’t read and they’re promoting them,” said Rep. Nora Espinoza, R-Roswell. Republican Rep. Dennis Roch, a school superintendent from Logan, said he sees mandatory retentions as an essential reform for public schools. The state Public Education Department said about 5,200 third-graders scored so low on reading last year that they would be candidates for retention. But about two-thirds of those kids would have received exemptions from any retention law because they are disabled and already have individualized instruction plans. That would have left about 1,750 third-graders subject to retention under Garcia’s original bill. But they also could have appealed and asked for waivers so they could move ahead to fourth grade. Mass retention of students has been challenged by various legislators and teachers as ineffective. Sen. Bill Soules, a teacher from Las Cruces, said summer school, reading coaches and early detection of sub-par readers are the keys to helping kids succeed. Forced retentions actually are harmful to kids, said Soules, a Democrat. In the Senate, a retention bill similar to Garcia’s original version is still alive. Sponsored by Sen. Gay Kernan, R-Hobbs, it will face heavy opposition in the Senate Education Committee, of which Soules is a member. Contact Milan Simonich at 986-3080 or msimonich@ sfnewmexican.com.

2014 Legislature

Lawmaker pitches plan to keep scholarship fund solvent Award would be based on student’s time in school, type of institution By Robert Nott The New Mexican

As both the Senate and House education committees work to find ways to keep the Lottery Scholarship fund solvent, one lawmaker proposes meeting that goal by making the scholarship a financial carrot students would earn by continually proving their academic standing and graduating on time. Senate Bill 327, introduced by Sen. John Sapien, D-Albuquerque, bases the

amount of scholarship tuition on the semester of enrollment and the type of educational institution the student attends, with the goal of offering more money each semester to keep students on track to graduate within four years. For instance, for students attending a state community college, the tuition would be $300 for the second and third semesters and $600 for the fourth and fifth semesters. For students attending one of the state’s main four-year colleges — including The University of New Mexico — the rate would be $500 for the second and third semesters; $800 for the fourth and fifth semesters; $1,000 for the sixth and seventh semesters, and $1,200 for the eighth and final semester.

Few students actually earn the scholarship money in the first semester. Sapien told the Senate Education Committee on Monday that his plan is based on data that shows that only about 30 percent of all students who receive the free tuition money actually complete a college degree in four years. While some of them complete a certificate or degree earlier and no longer need the money, others either leave school or drop below the mandated eligibility rules. Among other requirements, students must take at least 12 credits each semester and maintain a grade-point average of 2.5. Sapien said his plan will keep the fund going.

The fund was created in 1996 and uses proceeds from the sale of lottery tickets to pay for tuition. But lottery revenue has stalled just under $40 million, and the annual need for the scholarship is more than $65 million at this point. Lawmakers and the governor have both pledged to find a way to keep this spring semester’s scholarship afloat through a one-time use of General Fund money — estimated to be between $15 million and $20 million. Lawmakers, educators and students who attended Monday’s session expressed concern for both the shortterm and long-term solvency of the fund. The Senate committee heard four bills while the House committee considered another three, suggesting that

members of both parties in both houses are united in finding a solution. Among the other options considered Monday: capping tuition increases for students who receive the scholarship, increasing the required amount of credits from 12 to 15 for students and letting individual colleges decide how they wish to appropriate the funds among their students. If lawmakers cannot come up with an agreeable solution, the Higher Education Department has the power to make a final decision, perhaps simply decreasing the amount of tuition for all students across the board. Contact Robert Nott at 986-3021 or rnott@sfnewmexican.com.

Downs: Testimony cites rushed approval Continued from Page A-1 Martinez to the state Board of Finance in 2011, resigned from the board that year over The Downs contract and the way he was treated by the administration when he raised concerns. “Keep politics out,” Tinnin said. “[Politics] kills it.” Asked by a senator about The Downs contract, Tinnin said, “It didn’t smell right.” Also testifying at Monday’s hearing were former Fair Commissioner Charlotte Rode and current Commissioner Kenneth “Twister” Smith. Both are Martinez-appointed Republicans who voted against The Downs contract, which was approved 4-3. Both spoke about pressure from the administration in the fall of 2011 to rush approval. And both agreed with Tinnin that the fair commission has become virtually powerless since Martinez has become governor. “Look at the agenda and the minutes. We never ever talked about business at meetings, ever,” Smith said. Rode said the administration kept secret from the commission the names of the people on the committee that evaluated the racing proposals. Both Smith and Rode, whose term on the commission expired last year, told the committee that the commission rarely meets. The state fair website shows that in 2012 there were three commission meetings, one in 2013 and one so far this year. Tinnin said when he was chairman of the commission, the panel met monthly. Sen. Linda Lopez, D-Albuquerque, chairwoman of the Rules Committee, had invited the governor, her consultant Jay McCleskey and State Fair Manager Dan Mourning to testify at the hearing. None appeared. Lopez noted that Martinez’s video operator, who usually shows up to webcast and tape committee meetings, didn’t show up for Monday’s session. State Auditor Hector Balderas, a Democrat, also didn’t show up. Balderas’ office conducted an audit that said the lease process appeared to follow the law, though Balderas expressed concern about whether 30 days was enough time to respond to the request for proposals. At the outset of the meeting, Lopez, who is running for governor, said there appeared to be a “coup d’état” at the fair. A spokesman for Martinez said, “That was nothing more than a taxpayer-funded political circus orchestrated by a desperate candidate for governor where not a single new piece of information was revealed. What you saw were people with incredible axes to grind, all of whom have had their wild-eyed accusations repeatedly discredited.” Only one of the committee’s four Republican members — Sen. Sander Rue of Albuquerque, who was present for part of the meeting — showed up to The Downs hearing. The Downs controversy goes back to Gov. Bill Richardson’s administration, when in 2010 the state and The Downs, which has operated the track since the 1980s, negotiated to

extend The Downs lease for 40 years. The fair commission never approved that, however. After Martinez became governor in 2011, the administration announced The Downs lease would be extended for a year. However, that July, the fair issued a request for proposals to lease the track and casino and surrounding land in the fairgrounds for 25 years. But interested bidders had only 30 days to submit proposals. Only two proposals — from The Downs and Laguna Development Corp. — came in. Administration officials have said that the state was not required to put the lease out for competitive bids. In September 2011, a threemember evaluation committee evaluated the proposals, recommending that the contract be awarded to The Downs, which is owned by three men — Bill Windham and John S. Turner, both of Louisiana, and Paul Blanchard of Albuquerque, a major political fundraiser for former Gov. Richardson. Windham, Turner and companies with which they are associated contributed tens of thousands of dollars to Martinez’s 2010 election campaign. They contributed a lesser amount to Martinez’s Democratic opponent Diane Denish. Martinez and others have denied the contributions were connected to the lease award. Critics have pointed out that the members of the evaluation team never filed conflict-ofinterest forms, though the members of that team signed sworn affidavits last year saying they’d had no contact with the Governor’s Office during the evaluation process. Mourning has said he appointed the members of the evaluation team. However, minutes of the commission’s Sept. 1, 2011, meeting said the team was appointed by the governor. Tinnin on Monday said that Mourning had asked him in 2011 to chair the contract evaluation team. In early August, Mourning said the work would have to be done by Sept. 1. After hearing no more about it, Tinnin said, he learned from a newspaper account that another evaluation team had been appointed. He said he later concluded he was taken out of the process because he knew too much. Tinnin said he met with Martinez and told her his concerns about the lease. He said the governor told him if he “disparaged” her people she would “take it personally.” He said he decided to resign “to shine a light” on what was going on with The Downs. Two senators at the meeting, Senate Majority Whip Tim Keller and Sen. Jerry Ortiz y Pino, both Albuquerque Democrats, called on Attorney General Gary King to investigate The Downs lease. A spokesman for King told The Associated Press that the office has been reviewing the deal. Although some Democrats have said there was “bidrigging,” there have been no charges.

Legislative roundup Days remaining in session: 9 Rep. Jeff speaks out: Rep. Sandra Jeff says she has been the target of bullying since her vote last week against the state budget proposal backed by fellow Democrats. “When did it stop being OK for members to vote their conscience?” Jeff said during a five-minute speech Monday on the floor of the House of Representatives. She said certain legislators — she did not name names — even threatened to undercut legislation for casinos on the Navajo Nation because of her vote on the budget. Jeff, D-Crownpoint, joined the 33 Republican members Friday in voting against the House budget bill. That created a 34-34 tie, meaning the budget remains unsettled. Skandera awaits a vote: Hanna Skandera, secretary-designate of public education, has been on the job for more than three years but still has not received a confirmation vote from the state Senate. Will senators make a decision on Skandera before the 30-day session ends Feb. 20? “I have no idea,” Skandera said Monday. “You’ll know sooner than I do.” Sen. Linda Lopez, D-Albuquerque, chairs the Rules Committee, where confirmation votes start before moving to the full 42-member Senate. Lopez has said she will call the vote on Skandera’s nomination this session. But at least two senators, Democrats John Arthur Smith of Deming and Daniel Ivey-Soto of Albuquerque, say there is no point to voting on Skandera now. If Gov. Susana Martinez is re-elected this fall, another confirmation hearing on Skandera would have to be held in next year’s 60-day session anyway, so a delay is in order, Ivey-Soto said. Smith said the confirmation hearing would steal time from budget issues this session.

Skandera would remain in office with full powers if the Senate again does not vote on confirming her. Giving foster kids a chance: The Senate Education Committee gave a “do pass” to Senate Bill 206, introduced by Sen. George Muñoz, D-Gallup, to waive tuition and fees at public colleges for students who have aged out of the state’s foster-care system. Muñoz told the committee that many of those children might not be eligible for the state’s Lottery Scholarship fund and might not have familial support to pay for college. Likewise, many of these students might have to work to pay bills, he said. Sen. Michael Padilla, D-Bernalillo, told the committee that he was a foster child and that, “85 percent of foster kids can’t start college for various reasons and this will provide them with a life-line.” E-cigarette ban: A prohibition on minors buying or possessing electronic cigarettes advanced through the House Judiciary Committee on Monday, but anti-smoking crusaders complained that it doesn’t go far enough. House Bill 15 sponsor Rep. Paul Bandy, R-Aztec, talked members of the panel out of an amendment backed by the American Cancer Society and others that would have classified the devices as a tobacco product. The battery-powered devices vaporize liquid capsules, often containing nicotine, for smoking. The federal government could settle that question. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is considering whether to classify e-cigarettes as tobacco products. Currently, neither state nor federal law regulates the sale of e-cigarette to people younger than 18. House Bill 15 would change that in New Mexico. Although the panel universally favored keeping children from accessing e-cigarettes, some members balked at the prospect of labeling them a tobacco product. “It’s not a tobacco product,” said Rep. Antonio “Moe” Maestas, D-Albuquerque. “That’s kind of dishonest.” Bandy appealed to the committee that by trying to improve his legislation, it might

have the damaging effect of stopping his effort to get e-cigarettes out of the hands of minors as soon as possible. “I would hate for the perfect to be the enemy of the good,” he said. The committee unanimously sent the bill to the House floor for debate with a “do pass” recommendation. Brewery district: Two New Mexico state senators are seeking to highlight a “brewery district” in Albuquerque. Sens. Tim Keller and Daniel Ivey-Soto, both Democrats from Bernalillo, are cosponsoring Senate Memorial 81, which would officially establish a Brewery District in the city. Keller says Albuquerque has a legitimate, industry-driven neighborhood of breweries. He says the legislation would recognize the cluster of breweries that have had a positive impact on the local economy and social scene. According to the New Mexico Brewers Guild, more than 65,000 barrels of beer were produced statewide last year. There also are at least two dozen microbreweries in New Mexico that have contributed to employment in their surrounding communities. Looking ahead: It will be Complete Streets in New Mexico Day at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 11, in the Rotunda to promote the idea of ensuring safe access for all street users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders. It also will be Boys & Girls Clubs of America Day, as well as New Mexico Small Business Development Center Day at the Legislature. On Wednesday, Feb. 12, acequia association leaders and young people will gather at the Capitol for Acequia Day at the Legislature, intended to call attention to various irrigation projects and water management issues. Quote of the day: “I will always be a Democrat.” — Rep. Sandra Jeff, D-Crownpoint, during her floor speech about pushback from fellow Democrats over her siding with Republicans against a proposed state budget last week. Staff and wire reports

Bushee, Gonzales vow to boost Santa Fe’s ‘creative economy’ at forum By Daniel J. Chacón

M

ayoral candidates Patti Bushee and Javier Gonzales described how they would boost Santa Fe’s arts and culture economy Monday evening at one of the last forums before the March 4 municipal election. The forum, hosted by Create the Vote, a collaboration of 35 arts, cultural and creative organizations and businesses, drew a crowd of more than 200 to the Center for Contemporary Arts. With a large chunk of Santa Fe’s economy based on the arts, both candidates promised to be strong advocates and distinguished themselves as the best-qualified candidate to take the city’s “creative economy” to the next level. “All the elements are here for us to be successful,” said Gonzales, a former county commissioner and state Democratic Party chairman. “We have the talent. We have the history. We have the infrastructure to support it. What it’s going to take is leadership, leadership that has the ability to pull people together.” Bushee, who served for two years as deputy director of the New Mexico Film Office, where she said she helped start a film technician training program, said the city needs to build on its infrastructure, from high-speed Internet to affordable housing for artists. “I’m very familiar with the creative economy having served 20 years on our council,” she said. “We need to promote the arts in ways that are very specific and very clear and regionally. I think we need to collaborate and expand.” The third mayoral candidate, City Councilor Bill Dimas, did not attend the forum. Dimas has sworn off all mayoral forums with

his opponents. While the forum focused on arts and culture, the two candidates fielded questions on a host of other topics, from their stances on a proposed charter amendment to make the mayor a full-time position to the legalization of marijuana. Bushee, who voted in support of putting the full-time mayor question on the March ballot, said voters should research the proposed charter amendment and decide for themselves. She said she would be a strong mayor, and believes, “In the end, to have a mayor there full time is a good thing.” Gonzales said he supports the proposal. “I think that it gives us our best chance to address some of the structural challenges

that are occurring in City Hall, some of those structural issues that lead to nepotism that for so long have been more about who you know and not what you know,” he said. On the marijuana question, Bushee said she supported decriminalization but that the city should take a “wait-and-see” approach on full legalization. “I want to see what our neighbors to the north in Colorado do,” she said. “But if we are going to legalize it, we certainly need to tax it.” Gonzales said he’s in favor of legalizing and regulating marijuana, a comment that generated applause. “We have to regulate the flow and the movement of marijuana in this community,” he said. “Right now, it’s being left to the drug dealers to push on our kids.”

Federal suit accuses CYFD of civil rights violations Complaint says actions of agency investigator resulted in abuse of young girl By Susan Montoya Bryan The Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE — New Mexico’s embattled child welfare agency is the target of a federal lawsuit alleging civil rights violations. The complaint, filed last week in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque, spells out the details of a custody battle that attorney Colin Hunter says resulted in a young girl being emotionally and physically abused at the hands of strangers. Hunter said Monday the case is the latest example of incompetence within the state Children, Youth and Families Department, which has come under scrutiny in the weeks since the death of Omaree Varela, a 9-yearold Albuquerque boy who police say was kicked repeatedly by his mother. In the lawsuit involving the girl, Hunter said a senior investigator with the state agency had called on Belen police to stop the girl’s father, remove the child from his vehicle and return her to her mother despite

While some trail users took advantage of the balmy weekend weather, thieves stole personal belongings that had been left behind in parked vehicles at trailheads. The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office reported three vehicles parked along Hyde Park Road near the Chamisa Trail were broken into between 3 and 4:30 p.m. Sunday. A purse was reportedly stolen from one vehicle, a backpack from another and a purse, a knife, a daily planner, a rosary, a Virgin Mary pendant, a few checks and medication from a third vehicle. The Santa Fe Police Department reported that on Saturday, thieves broke into two vehicles parked off Hyde Park Road at the Dale Ball Trails Saturday afternoon. The thieves stole a purse from one vehicle and a briefcase from another. In each case, the thieves smashed vehicle windows with a blunt object to gain entry. Lt. William Pacheco of the sheriff’s office said it’s common for thieves to target vehicles near trailheads when the weather warms. He also said that residents should store personal belongings in the trunk while hiking. “It takes two seconds to smash the window and take the item,” Pacheco said. Pacheco said deputies had a few leads in connection to the thefts in the Hyde Park Road area, but he could not release further information Monday. Celina Westervelt, a spokeswoman for the police department, said it’s not clear if the break-ins on Saturday are related to those on Sunday. In April 2013, the Santa Fe City Council approved a measure to install security cameras at parking garages, parks and trailheads. Thomas Williams, the city’s Information Technology and Telecommunications Division director, said contractors have installed cameras at most of the city’s downtown parking lots and garages in addition to the room at City Hall where parking fees are counted. Cameras are slated to be installed at parking areas for the Dorothy Stewart Trail and the Atalaya Trail on Camino de Cruz Blanca; the Dale Ball Trails on Upper Canyon Road and Hyde Park Road; and the La Tierra Trails off N.M. 599 near Unity Church. Contractors have started installing cameras at the Las Acequias Park. Wilson said cameras also are slated for installation at Patrick Smith Park, the Railyard Park and the parking area at the Rail Trail off Zia Road. The city began the project in June 2013, Williams said, but crews encountered difficulties getting power to the remote cameras. He said the camera network was changed, which also caused delays. Once the cameras are operating, the video will be available to police agencies as well as the public, which can request footage under the Inspection of Public Records Act.

an earlier court order that had established the father’s custody. The police stop happened Feb. 6, 2012, the same day a special court commissioner had dismissed a temporary restraining order against the father that stemmed from the mother’s efforts to overturn the court order. Hunter said the child welfare agency investigator took action despite the court order and knowing that the mother was a transient and did not have the means to care for the girl. “This is not a case of an overwhelmed system allowing a child to fall through the cracks. This is a case of poorly trained and poorly supervised government agencies flagrantly disobeying a court order and placing a child in danger,” the lawsuit states. The girl’s grandparents hired a private investigator to find her. She was found with strangers in a mobile home in Española and her mother’s whereabouts were unknown, according to the lawsuit. While in her mother’s custody, the father and grandparents claim the girl was often left unattended, did not go to school and was abused by strangers. Belen Police Chief Dan Robb said he was unaware of the case.

Children, Youth and Families Department spokesman Henry Varela called the lawsuit frivolous, noting that the child had never been in the agency’s custody. “Because the state of New Mexico never had legal custody of the child, CYFD never had any legal authority to decide where a child should be placed,” he said, without addressing the allegations against the investigator. Gov. Susana Martinez has acknowledged the agency has had a “revolving door” largely because of employee burnout and the difficult nature of the job. She has said she’s been trying to turn that around, but critics say caseloads have risen to unmanageable levels and the lack of follow-up is concerning. In the case of Omaree Varela, critics have said the child welfare agency and Albuquerque police failed the boy by not removing him from his home. Hunter said his clients are angry that their granddaughter was removed from a safe environment and placed in danger. “I don’t know the cause or the reason, and it’s not that I don’t think people don’t care over there, but something has to change,” he said, referring to the agency. “These jobs are just too important.”

In brief

Council committees approve ordinance to regulate buskers The City Council Public Works and Land Use Committee approved an ordinance on Monday that would regulate buskers who perform on the Plaza. City Councilor Chris Calvert originally proposed banning buskers from the Plaza and surrounding streets. The amended version of his bill would require buskers to obtain a license from the city that would allow them to perform from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., as long as the volume on battery-controlled amplifiers is at a reasonable level. Buskers would be barred from blocking sidewalks and building entrances and a police officer could ask crowds around them to disperse. The proposal is scheduled to be discussed by councilors on the Public Safety Committee on Feb. 18, and a public hearing is scheduled for March 26.

Attorney calls for ethics board to investigate Gonzales A local attorney filed an ethics complaint Monday alleging coordination between mayoral candidate Javier Gonzales and outside groups spending money in the March 4 municipal election. But Fred Rowe, who makes other assertions in the complaint, offers no concrete proof and asks the city’s ethics board to launch an investigation and use its subpoena power. “A subpoena would amplify existing circumstantial proof of concerted actions, dispel conclusory affidavits and blanket denials, and enable the board to avert a tainted mayoral election,” Rowe wrote in the seven-page complaint to the Ethics and Campaign Review Board. Rowe, a former chairman of the ethics board, declined to respond to questions, saying he doesn’t comment on pending cases. “The memorandum speaks for itself,” he said. Rowe supports City Councilor Patti Bushee in the race for mayor. He said he didn’t file the complaint on behalf of Bushee or her campaign. “It’s filed on behalf of myself as an attorney and as a concerned citizen,” he said. Gonzales said in an email Monday, “From what I can see, the complaint has no facts to substantiate any charge.” He said that his campaign has “embraced” public financing from the start and, “We’ve asked PACs to stand done and respect that my campaign, and my campaign alone, speaks for me.” The New Mexican

Mormons to weigh in on gay marriage ban in Utah By Brady McCombs The Associated Press

SALT LAKE CITY — The Mormon church and a coalition of religious organizations are expected to file an argument to a federal appeals court by midnight explaining why they believe Utah’s same-sex marriage ban should stand. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will file a “friend of the court” brief, along with Catholic, Southern Baptist and Lutheran organizations and the National Association of Evangelicals, court records show. The brief is being handled by the Salt Lake City law firm that represents the Mormon church, Kirton and McConkie. Monday was the deadline for filings in support of Utah before the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Other groups and organizations have already submitted their arguments, including a group of attorney generals from 10 states who argue same-sex marriage is not part of American tradition. Utah state attorneys filed their opening argument last week, saying the optimal environment for raising children is with a mother and father. The state contends that redefining marriage poses “real, concrete risks to children” because not having a mother or father leads to emotional damage. The state said its duty is to look out for the long-term interests of children who can’t defend themselves. Attorneys for three gay and lesbian couples in Utah who brought the lawsuit against Utah will file their response by Feb. 25. Organizations who want to send in arguments in support of the couples have until March 4. The couples’ attorneys have scoffed at the notion that gay and lesbian couples make inferior parents, saying there is no scientific evidence to back that claim. They also have pointed to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling last summer that struck down part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act as backing in this case. In that decision, the justices wrote that limiting marriages to a man and a woman relegates gay marriages to second-class status and “humiliates tens of thousands of children now being raised by same-sex couples.” A hearing has been set for April 10 in Denver. The court will then decide if it agrees with a federal judge in Utah who in mid-December overturned the 2004-voter passed ban, saying it violates gay and lesbian couples’ rights to due process and equal protection under the 14th Amendment. The appeals court also is reviewing a similar decision about Oklahoma’s ban, and a hearing on that case has been set for April 17. The arguments in support of Utah’s gay marriage ban, passed by two-thirds of voters in 2004, trickled in Monday. Attorney generals from Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Indiana, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma and South Carolina filed a brief that said same-sex marriage is not part of the country’s roots and traditions. “Traditional marriage is too deeply imbedded in our laws, history and traditions for a court to hold that more recent state constitutional enactment of that definition is illegitimate or irrational,” Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller wrote. Zoeller went on to tamp down the notion that defining marriage as between a man and a woman discriminates against gays and lesbians.

dramatically surprising,” Finlaw said. But Colorado isn’t done debating pot, all on the panel agreed. Rep. Dan Pabon, a Denver Democrat who sponsored last year’s pot regulatory bill, pointed out that alcohol prohibition ended in 1933, but alcohol bills are still routinely considered in the Legislature. “This will take time,” Pabon said on marijuana laws. No one on the panel would guess how much tax money pot sales have produced in the first six weeks. “That’s the $64,000 question that everybody has been asking

since Jan. 2,” Brohl said with a smile. The pot discussion came hours after a new poll showed Colorado’s mixed feelings about the legal drug. The Quinnipiac University Poll released Monday says that voters still support the state law that legalized recreational marijuana, but most believe it is hurting the image of the state. The poll indicates that 51 percent of voters overall believe the measure is bad for the state’s reputation, while 38 percent see it as a net positive. Like other marijuana polls, the Colorado survey revealed a sharp age divide. Among vot-

ers 18 to 29, 57 percent say legal marijuana is good for the state’s image. Among voters older than 65, 67 percent say it’s bad. Overall, 58 percent of people surveyed still support the law passed in 2012, the poll said. The poll of 1,139 registered voters was taken from Jan. 29 to Feb. 2. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.

Funeral services and memorials MARILYN J. YOUNG Marilyn J. Young, giving nurse, mother, art collector, gourmand, and charmer, passed quietly in her sleep in the early hours of the morning of February 5th in the great Southwest that she loved. She was seventy-nine years old. Lyn was a graduate of St. Joseph’s School of Nursing and became a registered nurse in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, where she met her husband of thirty-eight years, Ted Young. They moved to Grand Haven, Michigan where she started her career, she began her career at North Ottawa Community Hospital in the ICCU from the unit’s inception in the mid-sixties. Working nights, a time when patients are most alone and vulnerable, Lyn found her vocation tending to their emotional as well as physical needs with her nursing family at NOCH. She was also involved in labor relations and starting the hospital workers’ union there. During this time she also received a Master’s Degree from Western Michigan University. In the mid-seventies she discovered a true love for Native American Art and the culture of the Pueblo Indians in the American Southwest, a passion she fostered for the rest of her life. She attended the Santa Fe Indian Market annually, and her yearly trips to the surrounding area prompted her to retire there in 1994. She remained active volunteering at the Wheelwright Museum of The American Indian and continuing her nursing work with substance abuse patients. Active in the West Michigan community, she was a Vice President of Child and Family Services for Allegan and Ottawa Counties from 1982-90, Chairperson and Member of the Substance Abuse Advisory Council for Allegan, Ottawa, and Muskegon Counties from 1977-84, and on the Tri-Cities United Way Board. During her life she maintained a spirituality that spoke through her actions, and it was one of the reasons she chose nursing as a profession. Those who knew her as a coworker, friend, acquaintance, or in passing remember a hug, a laugh, a story, a kind word, her unique empathy and sense of humor that created an enduring bond. She will be greatly missed by all. Marilyn was preceded in death by her husband, Theodore A. Young, and is survived by her sister, Sandra Travis, of Webster, Texas; her daughter, Rebecca Wardell and husband Chris Tillman of Winnipeg, Canada; son, Richard Young and wife Mary Payne; and granddaughter, Olive Young, of Los Angeles, California.

OPINIONS E-XTRA

THE NEW MEXICAN Tuesday, February 11, 2014

e-Voices Our Web readers speak out: Santo Domingo teen appears in debatestirring Super Bowl ad, Feb. 3 I didn’t particularly care for the ad. Not because “ it was sung in several languages, but because it so blatantly reeked of political correctness.” A.L.

I thought the commercial was beautiful. I thought “ the backlash was ugly.” W.A.R. Many people in America forget that as a country, “ we have no official language. Ms. [Christy] Bird should be very proud of her accomplishment. I’m so glad The New Mexican highlighted her contribution to that Super Bowl commercial. I hope she tunes out the bigoted nonsense some of our fellow countrymen spout and keeps her great attitude. People should be glad that ‘America’ is being sung in any language.” T.H.

Education funding fight stalls House budget bill, Feb. 7 And here all the while I thought women were go“ ing to save the world. Not in New Mexico!” G.A. First, these reforms are not working in D.C., Ten“ nessee and Florida. Second, the governor is calling parents special interest groups now? That is who has been contacting her. Parents who are seeing the destruction of these policies. She needs to quit her worn-out talking points.” C.S.

Not sure whether we should keep pumping more money into education. I heard that 3 out of 5 dollars already go into [education programs] with dismal results. There are so many other programs that could sure use the money like alcohol/drug addiction, mental health, senior citizens, etc. Unless you get control of these areas, a lot of children will never do well. Really hard to study when you have no parental help, constant brawling in the home and hungry kids.” P.W.

Not really a supporter of Ms. [Hanna] Skandera’s education programs, but I find the choice of photo here reflects poorly on The New Mexican. It’s easy to get an unflattering photo of anyone if you stalk them for even a little while. Would have been better to post no photo at all.” P.S.

Our View: Dump the guns? A Capitol idea I don’t necessarily believe that firearms should accompany government proceedings, but it is highly irritating when a large media source, such as a newspaper, chooses to tell the rest of the public what’s what. Instead of trying to limit safe, productive citizens from obtaining and using firearms that they desire, let’s work more on making those who would misuse a firearm into safe and productive citizens.” J.W.

Open or concealed carry — guns have no place in “ the Capitol any more than they belong in a court-

room. If you’re in a political debate with someone carrying a gun, it doesn’t matter if they are ‘brandishing’ or not — it’s intimidating. If you want to carry your gun, concealed or not — fine. I have no problem with that. They just don’t belong in the Capitol.” P.T.

DWI bill suffers blow in House committee, Feb. 6 So let’s see, we will put it off for another year, and how many more folks will die? What is the matter with these people? They have a moral duty to pass good laws to protect the public. There are always lame excuses for what they do. There is no valid reason why this law cannot be brought back up and passed now. Just more politicians. I have reached the point of having no use or respect for any of them.” J.F.

LOOKING IN: JOSÉ ARMAS

Governor’s record ‘unexceptional’ D uring Gov. Susana Martinez’s first legislative session, I visited with longtime friend and former Gov. Dave Cargo in his home. I asked what he thought about Martinez cutting education to the lowest level in recorded history (43 percent). Our late Republican governor, who was never at a loss for words and often boasted about his 55 percent education budget, could only smile and shake his head. As our governor begins her last year, I can only shake my head also. Let me count the whys. Martinez’s policies continue to increase the gap between the haves and have nots. Under her regime, we have increasing poverty, hunger, low wages, a derailed education direction. She is surrounded with people who don’t seem to have a clue about those at the bottom of the social and economic ladder. Her agenda this year promises more of the same: u Martinez’s education reform is not happening. Her education chief, Hanna Skandera, has never produced an inclusive, comprehensive plan. Experts say that three years ago, her cuts underfunded education to $500 million a year. Then each following year — including this year — Martinez has asked lawmakers for more and more of that money back again. And, it’s unconscionable that Skandera continues failing to implement mandates of the Hispanic Education Act that impact 190,000 students. Lawmak-

was stunned and disappointed to see The Santa Fe New Mexican’s publication of Milan Simonich’s blog criticizing Attorney General Gary King for his tireless work to keep the vile, polluting and potentially dangerous horse slaughter industry from ruining our state and harming our horses. King has appropriately responded to the vast majority (70 percent, according to a recent scientific poll) of New Mexicans who oppose horse slaughter and who don’t want a horse slaughter facility in their community. King has been doing all he can to stop horse slaughter in its tracks, and is in fact quite effectively representing the will of our state’s citizens. Why would the fact that he’s running for governor mean that he shouldn’t use his considerable authority as attorney general to stand up for our state? Fact is, he’s doing his job, and I know most people are very glad that he is. Elisabeth Jennings

Courtesy phone I was shopping in Santa Fe and my cellphone slipped out of its holster. I didn’t notice it missing until sometime later. I took a chance and called it, and it was answered by a local gentlemen who saw it fall but couldn’t catch up with me. He volunteered to meet me and return it. You have some pretty wonderful folks living in Santa Fe. My sincere thanks.

of the legislator’s family members. Then and only then will it impact. How sad!” M.M.

u Regarding the working poor vs. rich corporations that continue reaping record profits, Martinez has turned away from working folks. She persists in providing more corporate welfare in the form of tax breaks and incentives to businesses who are not creating more jobs. Martinez opposes increasing the minimum wage, thereby dismissing workers — the real job creators. Heck, even the infamous Republican millionaire Ron Unz supports raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. Instead of addressing our economic inequalities, our governor prefers to champion rich corporations who need help the least. u Believe it or not, a Martinez priority is trying, for the fifth time, to make our roads more dangerous by denying undocumented immigrants driver’s licenses. Five times … The report card for Gov. Martinez’s entire term is, in a word, “unexceptionable” — to use one of her favorite words. Every day New Mexicans get platitudes but little relief. Martinez will be remembered as one of our worst governors for increasing disparities between the rich and working people. But, given the huge re-election war chest she has amassed, it will be difficult (though not impossible) to beat her. Where is Lonesome Dave when you need him?

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Absolutely disgraceful. Our legislators get more “ and more pathetic with each session. I keep praying

for a miracle that one day the people of New Mexico finally wake up and vote each and every one of these bums out of office. Both domestically and nationally.” A.L.

ers have good reason not confirming her nomination as education secretary. u Yolanda Deines, secretary of Children Youth and Families Department, returned $6 million back to the state. Martinez and Deines seem impervious to the fact that New Mexico is perpetually among the worst places to raise a child. At best, it’s nonfeasance if they can’t use $6 million to help families in one of the country’s poor states. u Sidonie Squier, Human Services secretary, pooh-poohed our poverty numbers. When her comments sparked a public outrage, Squier reluctantly apologized. But Martinez defended her, saying she didn’t believe Squier meant what she said. u Martinez doesn’t support the Affordable Care Act and it shows. Although more than 200,00 New Mexicans qualify for direly needed health insurance, Retta Ward, her health secretary, barely managed to enroll 7,688 as of Dec. 28, according to a department spokeswoman. It’s not surprising that the states with Republican governors are plagued with the most problems enrolling people. And, of the $7 million the feds gave Martinez to recruit enrollees, only $2.3 million was spent as of Dec. 16. The spokeswoman assured me that a very aggressive advertising campaign is now in the works. Am I a cynic to believe the money was saved to be spent this year, during Martinez’s re-election run?

There’s another aspect to the question of monitoring and that is, who is to be monitored? Since the problems we face today are all caused by government, it only makes sense for us to be monitoring them. Send out the names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of the NSA “workers,” plus the alphabet soup of other agencies, right down to the local police, firemen and teachers. We want to put cameras and microphones in their houses just to see what they are doing. All of this is ridiculous, and most ridiculous of all is that they are getting paid. Carl R. Goodwin II

Riding the rails I was born in Santa Fe in 1941. My family moved away in late 1944 to Kansas. Since that time, members have visited the state every year. I attended New Mexico Military Institute in the late 1950s and have so

many attachments to the state, it’s hard to explain in a few words. My spouse and I come down at least four times a year for five days to a week to visit. We stay at La Fonda, and it’s like our second home. Many times we have used the services of Amtrak. Especially during the winter months, we use this mode of transportation because of bad weather. I’m amazed at the attitude of the governor against providing money to help the rail line to continue. Of course, I blame Warren Buffett for the problem. After he bought the BNSF railroad, he didn’t want to support rail travel. The railroads have never wanted passengers for 70-plus years. They make their money on freight. The public is a pain in the (you know what) and there’s little profit catering to this part of rail services. I do want Amtrak to continue. It’s a “give me,” but what a great option to have for travel.

ecently we learned that, “For the first time in 3 million years, the average daily concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, as recorded at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii, has exceeded 400 ppm.” If getting your head around the idea feels uncomfortable, imagine what it feels like for a child. They look outside and see our beautiful sky and enchanted sunsets, yet their future is threatened. While carbon dioxide is invisible and we older generations have been able to ignore and evade our responsibility for causing this elephant in the room — catastrophic climate change — the impacts are very real indeed and are starting to be felt all over the world. Scientists agree that we must transition from reliance on fossil fuels to renewables as quickly as possible if we have a chance at avoiding runaway climate change. We are currently spewing emissions at a dangerous rate. We must change course now. We are nearing the tipping point. We can see the local impacts of climate change at home: drought, insufficient snow pack that means less water in our watershed and record-breaking wildfires. Furthermore, coal impacts our air quality. One-quarter of New Mexico children suffer from respiratory problems as a result

of the emissions from our coal-fired power plants. This fact was corroborated when I visited a fifth-grade class. The students just seemed to take the condition for granted. What a huge contrast to the one boy with asthma in my entire elementary school! Public Service Company of New Mexico has only 1 percent solar in its portfolio and will get to 3 percent by 2015, but that is too little, and not nearly commensurate with the science — especially considering that we have the second-greatest potential for solar generation in the country. We’re behind and need to do far more in order to effectively mitigate the effects of climate change. Inaction is no longer an option. The good news is that there is a oncein-a-lifetime opportunity in New Mexico to dramatically shift our energy investments away from fossil fuels to clean renewable sources this year. PNM recently announced the closing of half the San Juan coal plant due to a Clean Air Act settlement with the EPA. Instead of taking this opportunity to replace coal with renewables, PNM is proposing to replace the energy with coal from one of the remaining units, nuclear from Arizona, gas and only a tiny amount of solar. Their plan has to be approved by

the Public Regulation Commission, and we have the chance to stand up and say, “We can do better.” Solar and wind are currently less expensive than nuclear energy. With your help we can convince the PRC to rule in the public’s economic, health and environmental interests. We can make the argument to counter the coal and nuclear option with a more responsible, sensible and costeffective option of supporting a plan that proposes a mix of natural gas, wind and solar. The renewable option leads to a sustainable future for all. Too few of us act upon our responsibility to participate in our democracy. You can help by writing letters to the PRC in opposition to PNM’s replacement power plan. Also, educate friends and colleagues and share the importance of active involvement with young people at your nearest elementary school. The human spirit is not bound by age, and it’s not too early to introduce participation in local government. Let’s turn our anxiety and concern into positive action and make a difference.

T LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

CYFD: A mission unfulfilled A

9-year-old boy is dead after the Children, Youth and Families Department returned him to his abusive household. I was outraged to read this. Despite the complexities of running an agency like CYFD, I find the statements the department chief made unacceptable: “Things were done the way they needed to be done; we responded appropriately. I can’t guarantee that’s not going to happen again.” Actually, yes you can; and you can make the effort a keystone in your policy. New Mexico is at the very bottom of state statistics for child welfare. Our country is already viewed by the world as a violent place to live. Our children are particularly at risk. The governor and Legislature can do something substantial about this — increasing funds, training from other agencies and support for struggling households are just a few. It’s a massive problem, but the means to solve it are there. The key question is: Will it be done? Your agency is supposed to “protect” children. Do what you’ve been charged to do, what you’re being paid to do. Barbara Gage

Santa Fe

Not a priority As I did last year, I attended Native American Day to hear our governor address New Mexico’s tribes. Just as last year, she “was attending to urgent matters” and was a no-show. Once is understandable. Twice sends a message. Neither Native Americans nor their issues is on her priority list. Les Dye

Standing a chance Our enormous economic standing in the world is due to the tremendous economic power that our middle class has had. In the past several years, this power has shifted disproportionally in favor of the upper 1 percent. Isn’t it time to reverse those policies that the Republicans have advocated? To continue would be pure madness! If our economic decline continues, it is their

fault. Let’s make sure in the next elections they lose the House and certainly don’t gain the Senate. We can finally give the middle class a chance. Fabio Massimo Macchioni

Santa Fe

A bad ride I applaud Gov. Susana Martinez for being reluctant to use New Mexico taxpayer monies to keep this Amtrak route alive. I am unable to verify the claims of the money this train supposedly brings into New Mexico, but it obviously is not earning enough to maintain itself. It should be allowed to go the way of the stagecoach, since New Mexicans have long since chosen flying as their means of public transportation. Not long ago, The New Mexican rejoiced at a new direct flight from Santa Fe to Dallas. How about a comparison of the passengers flying to Dallas versus train passengers? Of all the needs for our tax monies, preservation of this train route serves a only minuscule fraction of New Mexicans. Jon Hicks

Back creativity As we near the city elections in March, I hope the three candidates for mayor will address in specific terms their plans for supporting and advancing the creative community in Santa Fe. The Museum of New Mexico, which our foundation supports through private philanthropy, is one of the cornerstones of Santa Fe’s creative community. Our four museums employ hundreds of city residents, contract for services with hundreds more and draw more than 300,000 visitors each year. We also engage more than 40,000 young people annually in a variety of educational programs. These efforts, amplified by the full range of creative activities here, contribute to Santa Fe’s cultural and economic vitality. They make our city a cultural destination for visitors throughout the nation and the world. And they help define the very unique character of

our town, aptly named the City Different, with its distinctive history and traditions that have been shaped largely by the arts. Jamie Clements

Single source Why, in the front-page profile of mayoral candidate Patti Bushee (“Bushee says she’d bring experience to mayor’s seat,” Feb. 4), was Matthew Ortiz used as the only source of criticism of her performance as a member of the City Council given his distinguished past record of public service?

A poor partnership I was encouraged recently that the president didn’t overtly press his support of the Trans-Pacific Partnership nonsense that he has been pushing. (I am totally perplexed at his support.) I am hopeful he was actually paying attention to those of us who have been urging our representatives to defeat it. The bill would mean even more offshoring of jobs, imports of unsafe food and products, and expanded power for already bloated corporations. As written, I believe the bill is unwieldy as well as unavailable currently and therefore unlikely to be adequately studied by Congress before being pushed to vote on it. Mary Thomas

A wake-up call With increasing space being given by local media to the issues and local impacts of climate change, I am encouraged. We may be a little closer to grasping the enormity of what lies ahead. Yet, as with the president’s State of the Union message, it is clear we are not “there.” Naomi Klein, author of Shock Doctrine, posits that climate change is a tool that can be used “to spur political and eco-

All that we have learned in our struggles for human rights, economic justice, universal education, moral leadership and strengthening the social fabric — all of this must be used to respond to the wake-up call bought to us by droughts, fires, storms.

The right call After the Sierra Club endorsed Javier Gonzales for mayor, Patti Bushee issued a paper insisting she had a better environmental record. Bushee claimed credit for the Buckman Direct Diversion project and “reduced dependence on aquifer” that Buckman allowed. She claimed credit for “funding … for watershed health,” “awardwinning network of urban trails” and “solar … electricity consumed in municipal buildings.” In the campaign, she says Santa Fe’s south side needs more resources. What’s wrong with this? Bushee voted against all of it. On Jan. 28, 2009, she voted against funding for the Buckman project. On Nov. 30, 2011 she voted against a $14 million bond for parks and trails, including the Southside regional park, and against a $3.8 million bond for watershed improvement and installation of solar panels at the Genoveva Chavez Community Center. Both bonds passed. This is why the Sierra Club made the right endorsement. Jeff Haas

he plastic bag ban is nearly upon Santa Fe. Come the end of the month, barring any lastminute delays from the Santa Fe City Council, shoppers will leave behind single-use, flimsy plastic bags and begin carrying reusable cloth bags. Or, they can choose paper sacks (a required 10-cent charge for each bag is likely to be rescinded by the council, although stores can add a surcharge if they choose.) To get people ready for the switch, the city has its Bag to Differ campaign, and retailers are encouraged to educate shoppers. It’s time to pick up the campaign to educate shoppers. With just more than two weeks away, we see little evidence that shoppers understand the bag ban is upon them. Under the ordinance, bags made of plastic less than 2.25 mils thick no longer will be allowed. As we’ve said before, banning plastic bags is just common sense. It will reduce trash both around town and in our landfill. More importantly, for the planet, plastic bags waste non-renewable resources. Difficult to recycle, they can jam and damage recycling sorting machines. The Clean Air Council estimates that fewer than 1 percent of the bags ever are recycled. Of course, more recycling of plastic bags would be a good thing — whether by people returning their bags to recycling bins or finding ways to turn the bags into new products. A city bag ban doesn’t mean we shouldn’t recycle whatever bags remain — whether we pick them up shopping in the county or Albuquerque. Despite worries, we believe that, just like in many towns and cities in California and across Hawaii, our shoppers will adjust and bring their own bags. (For people worried about picking up dog poop, be of good cheer. The city distributes poop bags at nearly every park and along walking trails. And they are free.) Wash the reusable bags, too, to eliminate germs. The city’s outreach campaign has been taking place at different locations around town — city workers are handing out reusable cloth bags and information about the ban. On Feb. 15, workers will be at Wal-Mart at Cerrillos Road and Richards Avenue, and again, on Feb. 22, this time at La Montanita Co-op. Both dates are 10 a.m.-noon. Pick up your bags and say goodbye to plastic.

ep. Mimi Stewart, D-Albuquerque, is incensed that Republican Gov. Susana Martinez has been taping hearings of the House Education Committee. Stewart, as chairwoman of that committee, has asked the governor’s representatives to stop recording hearings. As chairwoman, it’s her prerogative under House rules to allow (or not) recording, videotaping or photography (news media and the Legislature’s webcasting operation are exempt). Stewart is concerned there are political motivations at work, with some witnesses who oppose the governor’s reform agenda concerned about retribution. Not so, say the governor’s staff. Martinez just wants the public business to be public and available for all to see. We would speculate — given that the debate over education reform is hot and heavy — that Stewart is correct, and the video could be channeled to political purpose. To that, we say, so what? The Legislature is a public body. Its business should be public. And rather than complain about the governor making recordings, legislators need to approve their own archiving of hearings. That way, people all over the state can see what is happening in Santa Fe. Stewart says the solution “is for the governor to follow the same rules that all of us have to follow.” No, the solution is to change the rules so that hearings are routinely videotaped, webcast and archived.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Feb. 11, 1964: Thanks to Florentino (Tony) Garcia, the skinniest postal employee who could be found in Santa Fe, the new Post Office’s stuck vault was opened Monday — four days after its combination lock failed to work. Opening of the vault, one of two in the new quarters, freed thousands of dollars of stamps and sent a quantity of registered mail, including a payroll, on its way.

hey don’t actually sell tractors at Tractor Supply Co., the just-opened farm and tack store on Airport Road. But anything and everything to attach to a tractor or that is needed to run a tractor and other ranch equipment is probably available at Tractor Supply, located off Airport Road near N.M. 599. There are tractor shovels as well as box plows, mowers and cultivators. While you might see barbecues out front of Lowe’s and Home Depot, Tractor Supply showcases its shiny red log splitters — three different sizes. Also near the main entrance is a Massimo ATV that retails for $7,999. There is a whole aisle of chain saws — half the space just for belts and replacement parts. “Santa Fe is a great location for Tractor Supply Company because there are a lot of small ranches and hobby farms in the area,” said manager Jim Isom. “They might have three, four, five acres, and they will need supplies.” Isom joined Tractor Supply in July 2013 as a manager in training at the Las Vegas, N.M., location. Prior to that, he worked as a district manager for Wal-Mart. It was clear walking around the new store Friday that he had found his niche. The morning before the store’s grand opening, Isom was helping load a large, insulated igloo doghouse into the bed of a pickup.

With a little straw, the hardy outdoor shelter can keep a dog warm even during the winter, Isom said. He helped another customer with a question about a chain saw and another who was wondering about truck storage. “It’s amazing how many different items we sell,” Isom said, pointing to row upon row of replacement ATV and wheelbarrow tires. He’s told the store sells 12,000 different items. Heavy-duty hardware — nuts, bolts, nails, fasteners — are sold by the pound. There are chains and ropes, tow hitches, tie downs and any kind of add-on for any kind of pickup, including bed boxes, cages, storage units and fenders.

“If you want plastic sheeting, I have plastic sheeting,” he said passing shelves of the stuff. About one-third of the store is feed and livestock supplies, including specialty feed for dogs as well as stock for poultry, horses, pigs, birds, cattle and cats. There are crates, cages and corrals, and Isom said they will be expanding the inventory of hummingbird food and feeders after learning that was a popular hobby in Santa Fe. The store also stocks belts, pulleys, motors, sump pumps, valves, sensors and every imaginable part to keep wells working and for blasting. If you need to prepare for a power outage or natural disaster, there are generators.

12-month period ending December 2013. New Mexico was ahead of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, the District of Columbia and Alaska.

Santa Fe area gained 200 jobs in 2013

Average price of gas in N.M. holds steady

According to the state Department of Workforce Solutions, the Santa Fe metro area gained 200 jobs over the 12 months from December 2012 to December 2013, and the number of nonfarm jobs now stands at 61,100. Payrolls peaked in Santa Fe County at 66,400 in July of 2008. The breakdown from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows the retail sector added 300 jobs; educational and health services added 400 positions; while employment in the leisure and hospitality industry now stands at 9,400, an increase of 100 from a year ago. Still, the gains were offset by the loss of government jobs (minus 100) and a category called business and professional services (minus 200), which includes Los Alamos National Laboratory. Statewide, job growth came in at 0.4 percent in New Mexico, which added 3,000 jobs over the year. That put New Mexico tied at 46th nationwide (with Kentucky) for job growth in the

Filling up at the pump in the Land of Enchantment will cost drivers an average of $3.12 a gallon, according to the AAA New Mexico Weekend Gas Watch. That price is the same as last week and 9 cents less than one year ago. The statewide average is 15 cents less than the national average of $3.27 a gallon. Of the major metropolitan areas surveyed in New Mexico, drivers in the Santa Fe area are paying the most at $3.12 and drivers in Albuquerque are paying the least at $3.02. Recent history has seen pump prices charge higher to start the year, however cold temperatures across much of the country have led to weak demand and kept prices flat to begin 2014. Despite the quiet start to the year, AAA analysts expect the national average to move higher in the coming weeks and months due to the same seasonal factors that have historically led to rising prices during the first quarter of the year.

There is a display of pocket knives at the checkout counter. The clothing section has boots for working in the mud, the sand and the water as well as bib overalls, jeans and cowboy boots for children, hats for adults and racks of work gloves.

he tangible results of New Mexico’s MainStreet program are evident all over the state. Some of the projects that have benefited from the historic preservation initiatives of New Mexico MainStreet include the Hotel Clovis, the Luna Theater in Clayton, the Silco Theater in Silver City, the Trail Boss monument in Artesia, the Farmers Market in Carlsbad and Tucumcari’s railroad depot. A subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, New Mexico MainStreet was created in 1984 by the Legislature to assist — with expertise and grant money — with the revitalization of traditional commercial districts. The task has been especially daunting as the three interstate highways that cross New Mexico have moved development and sprawl to the fringes of many towns. There are 27 MainStreet programs throughout New Mexico Bruce and since its inception, $1 billion Krasnow has been invested in the commerBusiness Matters cial districts for restoration and development. But often missed from the effort is the economic activity that happens after the construction is completed. The increased foot traffic, the new businesses and entrepreneurial energy that flows from the renovations. Now the program has tried to document that with an economic-impact report released last week by Donovan D. Rypkema, principal of PlaceEconomics, a Washington, D.C.-based real estate and economic development firm. By surveying all the projects and tracking construction and spending data, Rypkema was able to conclude that the program is partly responsible for expanding the jobs base in many of the small communities. “There’s significantly greater job creation in restoration than new construction,” he said during presentation to MainStreet program managers from around the state Feb. 5. “And these are not jobs that can be shipped to Indonesia next month, they have to stay in New Mexico.” Highlights of the findings include: u Since the beginning of the program in 1986, for every $1 the state of New Mexico invested in the MainStreet program, MainStreet districts saw private sector investment of $21.89 in building rehabilitation and $22.55 in new construction. u Since 1986 through July of 2013, New Mexico MainStreet communities saw a gain of 3,200 new businesses and nearly 11,300 new jobs. u The projects annually have generated an average of 430 jobs and $11 million in payroll since the program began. u The private sector investment in the renovation districts bring in an additional $5.1 million in tax revenue each year. One key to the success of the program is that other business owners feel more confident and secure opening in areas where there is investment and renovation — and this has a multiplying effect. “There is an extraordinary difference in businesses having confidence [compared with the national average] to open on your MainStreet” Rypkema told program managers last week. In a statement released about the study, Economic Development Secretary Jon Barela said, “We have always known the New Mexico MainStreet is a firstclass program that has paid tremendous dividends to New Mexico’s economy and now we have the hard data that presents the case. The report shows that New Mexico taxpayers are seeing a return on their investments and business and local governments benefit greatly from that investment.” Still, Rypkema said there is more that can be done to leverage the expertise and investment from the program. He said there can be a greater emphasis on downtown housing — especially rental units for those who value downtown amenities and arts and culture. He also said there can be closer ties to the Department of Tourism, which can more effectively market the values and cultures of the smaller New Mexico communities to those who value historic preservation.

As temperatures warm up, people travel more and the demand for fuel increases. Also, scheduled refinery maintenance, which often begins in February, as well as the mandated switchover to summer-blend gasoline before May, can result in sharp temporary price increases for areas supplied by affected facilities.

Health exchange simplifies small business program The New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange (NMHIX) has announced that the enrollment period for employees whose employers sign up for the Small Business Health Options Program, or SHOP, has now been condensed to a 33-day cycle. Employee open-enrollment dates will end on the third day of the month prior to the month coverage is scheduled to begin. Employer invoices will be generated on the fifth day of each month, with payment due by the 15th of that month. “We have taken into account feedback that the process for enrollment from employers finalizing their application to first billing was too long. We continue to work to streamline SHOP so that is easy to use, and by standardizing the dates have

maximized the open enrollment period to the full extent possible,” said Mike Nuñez, interim CEO for the health exchange. While employees are required to choose a plan that is in the level selected by the employer (bronze, silver, gold or platinum), they can often choose from a number of insurance carriers and plans within that level from Blue Cross Blue Shield, New Mexico Health Connections and Presbyterian. Another important change in SHOP is that the minimum participation rate, or MPR, is 50 percent of eligible employees in a business. If the employer does not meet the minimum MPR by the open-enrollment deadline, its coverage will not be processed. The employer might have to set up its plan again and restart the employee enrollment in the future. “NMHIX is also working closely with the broker community so they are better able to assist small employers in learning more about their choices, how to enroll and how to have an anonymous shopping experience that allows them to compare plans and benefits before they have to complete their applications,” Nuñez said.

After working so closely with Stern during his 22 years at the league, Silver’s fingerprints were already all over the $5.5 billion business long before he became in charge of it 10 days ago. “I’m not coming in with a fivepoint plan,” Silver told The Associated Press during an interview in his office at NBA headquarters. “I’m not an outsider coming into the league. I’ve been part of this league for a long time and if there was something that I thought should’ve been done markedly different than the way it’s done now, I think David and I would have pushed each other to do it. “My priority is the game and that’s what I’ll be telling people next Saturday.” He has been at the NBA since 1992, overseeing the league’s entertainment empire, helping negotiate collective bargaining agreements, and on Feb. 1, he replaced Stern. He is liked by owners and respected by players, all believing Silver is the person to continue the massive growth the league saw under Stern. “He’s someone who has the same kind of feel that we have, in the sense of how can we make this pie bigger? How can we make this game bigger? Miami Heat All-Star Dwyane Wade said. “He’s going to be a good commissioner I believe. Strong in what he believes in. He was in the [CBA] meetings as well, so we know what kind of guy he is and we respect him.” Silver, 51, ended up at taking Stern’s old job after ignoring his advice early in his career. He laughs now when recalling the path that led to him becoming the NBA commissioner. “It never even was a consideration of working at the NBA,” Silver said. “I don’t think I understood what that meant. I truly stumbled into working at the NBA.” Silver began his career in the legal

Sam: LB might be mid-round pick Continued from Page B-1 isolated guys here and there who might try to make a fuss about it, but players by and large are very much, ‘Hey, we’re here to do a job, we’re here to go out and play football.’ “In terms of the coaching/front office side, I think there’s where issues are going to arise because they are going to look at this like, ‘Hey, is this going to cause a distraction for the team?’ And by distraction, they mean, ‘We’re not really OK with having a gay player on our team, we can’t come out and say that, so we’re going to use the word distraction,’ ” Kluwe added. “And unfortunately, those are the people who determine if you’re employed or not.” John Elway has a unique perspective running the Broncos’ front office now after a Hall of Fame playing career, and he said Monday he’d have no problem drafting Sam. “We will evaluate Michael just like any other draft prospect: on the basis of his ability, character and NFL potential. His announcement will have no effect on how we see him as a football player,” Elway said. “Having spent 16 years in an NFL locker room, the bottom line is that it’s about treating others with respect and earning that respect. By all indications, it appears Michael has done just that throughout his football career.” Several coaches said if a player is accountable and a winner, being gay is a non-issue. “If anybody can come in and help us win games and be successful — black, white, yellow, straight, gay — I don’t think it matters,” said new Green Bay quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt. Before Sam revealed his sexual orientation, the pass-rusher was projected as a mid-round draft pick.

Kluwe said reports that Sam’s draft stock could drop because he revealed his sexual orientation “basically could have been lifted from any American sporting paper in the 1940s when Jackie Robinson was about to enter Major League Baseball. It’s like we’ve been here before. Why do we have to keep doing the same thing?” Sam will likely face even more scrutiny from opponents’ fans than Chargers linebacker Manti Te’o did after getting fooled by a hoax involving a fake girlfriend while at Notre Dame. What will help Sam is landing on a team with strong veteran leadership, something that was lacking in Miami, where tackle Jonathan Martin walked away at midseason, alleging guard Richie Incognito led daily harassment with racial, aggressive and sexually charged comments. Incognito was suspended for the final eight games and Martin’s career was thrown in limbo. Former Redskins tight end Chris Cooley said Sam’s performance on the field and as a team-

mate should quickly overshadow any stereotypes about sexual orientation. “I don’t think he faces any challenges as a player. I don’t think he faces a lot of challenges as a person,” Cooley said. “I think once he establishes himself as the kind of teammate he’s going to be, I think everybody will accept it fine.” Eagles All-Pro guard Evan Mathis said Sam will face obstacles no matter what. “NFL players shouldn’t judge Michael Sam based on his sexuality, but some guys will. MLB players shouldn’t have judged Jackie Robinson based on his skin color, but some did,” Mathis said. “Whether or not the NFL is ready for it, it needs to happen. There are still people on this Earth who lived through the prohibition of alcohol and the Civil Rights movement.

Gay: Time to move forward Continued from Page B-1

Linebacker Michael Sam warms up before the Cotton Bowl against Oklahoma State on Jan. 3 in Arlington, Texas.

said, “Who am I to judge?” He said people “should not be marginalized” because of their sexual orientation and “must be integrated into society.” Now, change is about to come to the NFL, the behemoth of the American sports landscape. It was inevitable, but the league now finds itself in a difficult, and potentially awkward, predicament. Its identity has been built on machismo and violence. It is a league rich with alpha males bursting with muscles who unapologetically smash into one another, to the delight of millions of fans. Initially, it may be hard for many viewers, and some football players, to see Sam, who announced publicly Sunday that he is gay, as another hard-nosed tough guy on his team’s defense. But I suspect he will change their perceptions, if a team gives him a chance. Some fans will love him, some will hate him. Some may reserve judgment until they see him rip the heads off his opponents, just as any other defensive player would do. Like so many other minorities, Sam will have to work harder to prove his worth. Fans will probably judge him more harshly, and he will have to perform better than other rookies to prove he belongs in the NFL. He also will have to survive his own locker room. And in the NFL, that may be his biggest obstacle. It is a place where bullying is a part of the culture, and because of Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito, the public has seen glimpses of that culture’s dysfunction. When Incognito used racial slurs to refer to his teammate Jonathan Martin, and when he left a voice message for Martin saying, “I’ll kill you” — that was just “Richie being Richie.” Martin said he felt so attacked that he left the league, and Sam is likely to endure far more attention than Martin ever did. Even more disturbing than Incognito’s actions were his teammates’ inaction. By doing nothing to stop any bullying, they encouraged it. So, we may not be able to trust Sam’s

NFL teammates to protect him as well as his Missouri teammates apparently did. He may have to brace himself for a rough road ahead. Former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe says homophobia exists in the league. He is convinced that the Vikings released him because he had taken a strong stand for same-sex marriage. He also claimed that the special teams coach, Mike Priefer, had made anti-gay comments to players, including, “We should round up all the gays, send them to an island and then nuke it until it glows.” If what Kluwe says is true, Sam surely wouldn’t be a good fit with the Vikings. But he should have hope. Other coaches in the league, including ones from years past, like Vince Lombardi, have shown themselves to be more progressive. If Sam had played for Lombardi, he would probably have had a clear, safe chance to shine. Lombardi had a gay brother and preached equal treatment of his players in his locker rooms. He made the rules and punished the dissenters — and that was all his teams needed to fall into line. He showed what could be done to affect locker room culture if coaches just took the lead. Teams also could rally around Sam, as the Washington Redskins did in the 1960s and ’70s with All-Pro tight end Jerry Smith, who was long rumored to be gay. His teammates never made an issue of it — probably because he could play. After Smith died of AIDS in 1986, it was reported that several of his teammates were pallbearers because they felt like family off the field as well as on it. Roger Goodell, the league commissioner, will bear some responsibility for making sure that Sam is treated respectfully. How Goodell handles the Incognito case will signal his appetite for changing the league’s culture. There is no question that Goodell will be watching Sam closely and will be monitoring his treatment in the locker room — if only because he knows the world will be watching, too. But first, of course, Sam must be drafted. It’s time to move forward. The teams and the league are on the clock.


SPORTS NBA ROUNDUP

Pistons beat Spurs in Loyer’s debut The Associated Press

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Brandon Jennings scored 21 points, and the Detroit Pistons beat the San Antonio Spurs 109-100 on Monday night in Pistons 109 John Loyer’s first game as interim coach. Spurs 100 Detroit abruptly fired Maurice Cheeks on Sunday after only 50 games as coach, but although they’ve been unimpressive for the most part this season, the Pistons have played better lately. The comfortable win over the Spurs was Detroit’s fifth in seven games. Rodney Stuckey scored 20 points for the Pistons, and Greg Monroe added 15 points and 10 rebounds. ROCKETS 107, TIMBERWOLVES 89 In Minneapolis, Dwight Howard had 18 points and 15 rebounds, and surging Houston used a fourth-quarter push to hold off the Timberwolves for their sixth consecutive victory. Chandler Parsons had 20 points and James Harden scored 19 for the Rockets, who have won six straight for the first time

since taking seven in a row from Jan. 13-23, 2012. Back after missing one game with a bruised left quadriceps, Kevin Love led Minnesota with 31 points and 10 rebounds. Chase Budinger had 15 points for the Timberwolves, who have lost four straight and six of seven. PACERS 119, NUGGETS 80 In Indianapolis, David West scored 25 points and Roy Hibbert added 14 as the Pacers routed short-handed Denver. Indiana snapped a five-game skid in the series, beating the Nuggets for the first time since a 31-point blowout in November 2010. The Pacers (40-11) still have the NBA’s best record, the league’s best home record (25-2) and now lead two-time defending champion Miami by four games in the Eastern Conference. Wilson Chandler scored 17 points to lead the Nuggets (24-26), who have lost three straight. They played without several injured players, including Andre Miller, Danilo Gallinari, JaVale McGee, Nate Robinson and Ty Lawson. RAPTORS 108, PELICANS 101 In Toronto, Kyle Lowry had 19 points

and 12 assists, Patrick Patterson scored a season-high 22, and the Raptors beat New Orleans. DeMar DeRozan also had 22 points, Terrence Ross added 14 and Tyler Hansbrough scored 12 for Toronto, which has won five consecutive meetings and seven of eight against New Orleans. The first-place Raptors moved three games ahead of Brooklyn in the Atlantic Division by winning for the ninth time in 11 home games. CELTICS 102, BUCKS 86 In Milwaukee, Jeff Green scored 29 points and Kelly Olynyk added 14 points and 11 rebounds as Boston pulled away from the Bucks in the fourth quarter. The Celtics used a 12-4 run to start the final quarter to break open what had been a tight game. Green had seven points during the spurt and 11 overall in the quarter, while Olynyk scored 10 after Boston entered the fourth clinging to a 70-68 lead. Jared Sullinger added 13 points and 10 rebounds for Boston. Brandon Knight had 22 points for Milwaukee, which also got 17 points from Gary Neal and 16 points from John Henson before he left late in the game with an ankle injury.

Silver: Stern designated successor in 2012 Continued from Page B-1 field but was interested in transitioning to business, the same move Stern had so successfully made. So he wrote to Stern, who had worked at the same firm where Silver’s father, Edward, was a lawyer. Silver had handled some media cases and was aware of Stern’s accomplishments in negotiating cable TV deals. Stern gave him the number of someone to call, but the job was outside New York. Silver wasn’t interested in moving, which he explained to Stern when they spoke again. “He said, ‘Why didn’t you tell me? I’ve got some other ideas,’ ” Silver said. “It was happenstance,” he added. “I don’t think I quite understood what I was getting into at the time.”

He doesn’t plan on changing much, insisting that he and Stern would have already made whatever changes they felt necessary. But while the NBA’s international growth is frequently considered Stern’s greatest achievement, Silver seems focused on boosting the game’s popularity in the United States. Silver has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to basketball. He attended Duke in the early 1980s before the Blue Devils became a powerhouse, when nobody camped out outside Cameron Indoor Stadium because you could just get into games with a student ID. He moved to Chicago to attend law school and began going to games with friends in the early days of Michael Jordan, before the Bulls became the biggest

thing in basketball. Now Silver is following one of sports’ greatest commissioners. He acknowledges there will be times it will feel “lonely” without Stern there to face big decisions together, but Silver has worked so closely with Stern and been involved in so many aspects of the league that the transition should be a natural one. “Adam has been preparing for the job for a long time, he understands the business and I don’t see him having much difficulty shifting into the role of commissioner,” former NBA Players Association executive director Billy Hunter said. But Silver, designated as Stern’s successor in October 2012, knows that doesn’t mean it will always be easy. “I didn’t have the same

appreciation for what he was going through on a daily basis as the commissioner until I really thought about, ‘What if that were I and I had to make that decision?’ ” Silver said. “And it’s very different being sort of the voice in the ear of the guy making the decision as opposed to the guy making the decision.” Nonetheless, he believes the league is in a good place and ready to grow. He met with executives from Facebook and Twitter while visiting Sacramento and Golden State during his first week as commissioner, seeking ways to bring the NBA to a larger audience than ever. “To me,” Silver said, “the game is fantastic. The challenge is to use these new technologies and platforms to help more fans discover the game.”

COLLEGE BASKETBALL

For many, fan behavior crosses line too often schools to implement the practices, which are being updated. Leagues such as the Big 12 and Atlantic Coast Conference have the PA announcer read a pregame message reminding fans to be on good behavior. Yet in many cases, that’s the extent of enforcement, leaving athletes feeling abused and vulnerable even as they’re expected not to respond to derogatory comments.

By Aaron Beard

The Associated Press

Public address announcers around the country frequently tell fans before games that unsportsmanlike behavior toward athletes, coaches or officials won’t be tolerated. Then, once the ball goes up, it is tolerated. Universities and college conferences have policies to handle fans behaving badly. Administrators don’t want athletes taking matters into their own hands; yet, many players and coaches feel fans routinely cross the line with profanity-laced tirades, racial slurs and obscene gestures while those policies — typically threatening ejection — are rarely enforced. Oklahoma State All-American guard Marcus Smart was suspended three games for shoving a Texas Tech fan who later apologized for his actions. The incident shows how volatile the interaction between fans and athletes is becoming, especially with the proximity between the two. “When you sign up to play a sport in college, you sign away whatever freedoms you thought you had coming to college,” Connecticut women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma said. “You can’t react like a normal human being. “Someone says something, you can’t react. All of a sudden people, especially adults, say and can do what they want to a college kid on the floor knowing they have no recourse. They have to take it. I don’t agree with that, but that’s the world. Someone pays $20 to watch a basketball game and you can be an idiot.” Smart’s altercation with Red Raiders fan Jeff Orr happened late in Saturday’s game after he tumbled out of bounds behind the basket after tying to block a shot. After being helped to his feet, Smart quickly turned to confront Orr and shoved him with two hands after it appeared Orr said something to him. Teammates pulled Smart away from the fans. That same night, Oregon coach Dana Altman expressed concerns about safety after two of his staffers said an Arizona State student spit at them at halftime of the game in Tempe, Ariz. The student had his season tickets revoked, according to the school. In addition, Ducks guard Jason Calliste had a verbal confrontation with at least one student late in the first half. The proximity between fans and players was at issue again as Altman said it wasn’t a good situation to have visiting teams go past the student sec-

LONDON or the past three decades, many Britons had hoped the rigid class system that defined their country from Dickens to Downton Abbey was finally dying. Now they fear that class, their old bugbear, is back on the rise. From 1979, Britain was led for more than a decade by Margaret Thatcher, a grocer’s daughter, and then by John Major, the son of a musichall entertainer. The current leader, David Cameron, is a descendent of King William IV whose Cabinet is stacked with men, like him, from the country’s toniest private schools and Oxford and Cambridge universities. Even entertainment has a more upper-crust flavor these days. A recent Sunday Telegraph story with the headline “young, gifted and posh” said Britain’s oldest private schools, such as all-male Eton and Harrow, had become a “production line of young talent,” including Homeland star Damian Lewis, Benedict Cumberbatch of Sherlock and Dominic West of The Wire. So is it true that class divisions are deepening again? While the ancestral upper caste still retains its mystique in Britain, the numbers reflect a more complicated reality. An elite still dominates, but it is now a club where money — and the education money can buy — counts more than lineage.

Elite are different, but class is back The Associated Press

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II listens during the service of remembrance at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London, in November 2013. For the past three decades, many Britons had hoped the rigid class system that defined their country was finally dying. Now they fear that class, their old bugbear, is back on the rise.

New wealthy class When the Sunday Times newspaper published its first annual “Rich List” in 1989, Britain’s wealthiest individual was Queen Elizabeth II. The Top 10 was dominated by established British property and business owners, including the Duke of Westminster, who owns vast swaths of central London, supermarket magnate Lord Sainsbury and food mogul Lord Vestey. It was a snapshot of an elite heavy on titled backgrounds, clubby connections and inherited wealth. The 2013 list is a roll-call of international capitalists who have made London their base, with the Duke of Westminster the only carryover from the original roster. Even the queen has dropped out. The top 10 now includes Uzbek mining magnate Alisher Usmanov; Indian industrialists Srichand and Gopichand Hinduja; Chelsea Football Club’s Russian owner, Roman Abramovich; Norwegian shipping tycoon John Frederiksen and Heineken beer heir Charlene de Carvalho.

Song and dance If the bastions of business, politics and the professions were hard for working-class people to storm, there was always entertainment, where a working-class hero, as John Lennon put it, was something to be. You don’t need money or a degree to be a movie star or play rock ’n’ roll. In a list of actors with the highest cumulative boxoffice earnings on website Box Office Mojo, there are 10 Britons in the top 50. The older end of the list includes actors from working-class

backgrounds such as Michael Caine, son of a fish-market porter, and 55-year-old Gary Oldman, son of a sailor and a London housewife. As the list gets younger, it climbs the social scale: Ralph Fiennes, 51, grandson of a wealthy industrialist; Helena Bonham Carter, 47, whose great-grandfather was a British prime minister; and Orlando Bloom, 37, educated at private school. Of the three young stars of the Harry Potter trio, now in their 20s, Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson attended private schools; Rupert Grint went to a state school. That leaves sports — especially soccer — as the one arena whose stars are overwhelmingly working class. Sport provides a parallel elite, complete with an honorary king, David Beckham, who is handsome, regal and at ease standing alongside Prince William to lobby for British sports.

Prestige, politics If business has grown more open, many Britons express concern that an old upper class is reasserting itself at the top of politics. “No one would have imagined 20 years ago we’d be going back to Old Etonian prime ministers,” said historian David Kynaston, who is chronicling the way British society has changed since World War II in a series of books. “It was kind of thought once that class was going away.”

Back to school In most areas of British life, success comes down to going to the right — usually expensive — school. A third of Britain’s lawmakers, half its senior doctors and more than two-thirds of its High Court judges went to private schools, which educate just 7 percent of British children, according to statistics compiled by the British Parliament. Advocates of greater social mobility point to the education system as the key to loosening the grip of a wealthy elite. Some lament the demise of Britain’s academically rigorous grammar schools, where pupils were selected by exam at age 11. As engines of upward mobility, grammar schools worked. A list of Britain’s Nobel Prize winners in science over the past 35 years includes the sons of mechanics, gas fitters and stonemasons as well as doctors and academics. Ten out of 18 British laureates since 1979 attended grammar school. But the grammar schools were largely abolished in the 1970s. Now middle-class parents with means move to areas with the best state schools, or send their kids to private schools. In the end, British society faces a fundamental problem: For talented poor people to succeed, some less talented rich people will have to fail. “If you talk about having a more meritocratic society … we would have to have much more downward mobility than we do,” said sociologist John Goldthorpe. And there’s the rub. Downward mobility: Who’s going to campaign on that?

Wife’s behavior is not trustworthy Dear Annie: A few years ago, my wife went out of town for a conference. A month after she returned, I was on our computer and noticed that she hadn’t logged out of her email. My curiosity got the best of me, and I saw that she had traded emails with an old boyfriend. I then discovered that the two of them had met while she was at the conference. One of her last emails to him said, “I still have feelings for you.” On the advice of a marriage counselor, I was direct with her about it. She claimed nothing happened and that they only met for dinner and said she would never contact him again. She also was angry that I had invaded her privacy. Last year, my wife and I hit a rough patch. I got suspicious of her behavior and checked her cellphone. I saw that she had exchanged multiple texts with this same guy. Again, she claims nothing happened, the texts were innocent and I had no right to snoop. My wife knows the password to my email, and I never lock my cellphone. All of my communication is an open book. Meanwhile, she now locks her phone and has multiple email accounts. I understand the need for a little privacy, but I don’t believe you should be hiding things in a committed relationship. My wife is angry that I don’t trust her, and I’m having trouble dealing with this. Any advice? — Broken Up Dear Broken: We don’t trust your wife, either. She promised not to contact this man again and then did so and hid it from you. She locks her phone and has multiple email accounts to which you apparently do not have the passwords. Worse, to deflect blame, she accuses you of snooping. There may not have been a sexual affair, but it definitely sounds like an emotional attachment. Please go back to your counselor and

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You tend to be very sympathetic to a family member who often wants to share his or her feelings. Tonight: Why not go for some fun? CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You might want to be more direct with someone, but on some level you fear this person’s reaction. You intuitively know what to say. Tonight: Hang out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH Your nurturing side emerges. Listen to others, and you will know how to handle a problem. Honor a change, and be more forthright. Tonight: Make it early. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Your imagination will lead to some fun as you start to share your thoughts. Someone close to you could find you humorous. Tonight: Let your hair down. Jacqueline Bigar

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.

Hocus Focus

ask your wife to come with you. The two of you need a refresher course on how to make your marriage work and regain trust. Dear Annie: I own a small casual restaurant in a small town. People order at the counter and then take their food to a table to eat. In the past couple of years, I’ve noticed more people bringing in food from other establishments and eating at our place. I don’t understand why people think it’s OK to take advantage of an eating establishment like this. Don’t they realize that the owner is paying for the incidental items they use, such as napkins? Don’t they see that they are taking up space that could be used by people who are actually helping to pay the bills incurred by the restaurant? Am I looking at the situation in the wrong way? — No Free Lunch Dear No: We suspect most people have no clue that this is an inconvenience to you. There are some establishments that allow people to sit for extended lengths of time without ordering, but we know of none that encourage you to bring your own food. Most restaurants require a minimum order to justify the use of the space. We suggest you implement this policy with a sign at each table and at the cash register. You may have to approach flouters with a bill, but word will get around. Dear Annie: This is for “Tired,” who does all the cooking for the holiday meals and then gets stuck with the cleanup, too. I have a good friend in the same situation. She is on good terms with all of her family members, but they never helped or knew what to do. So she wrote up duties, put them on little pieces of paper and placed the pieces into a nice dish. When each guest arrived, they picked out a paper and read their duty for that meal. They loved it, and she was not so worn out. — DLT
