Pojoaque sues state Tribe seeks redress for perceived lack of good-faith negotiations on gambling contract
State halts Blue Corn alcohol sales after crash South-side location to pay $10,000 fine, suspend liquor sales for 15 days for serving driver who killed 2 teens By Phaedra Haywood The New Mexican
A south-side Santa Fe bar accused of overserving alcohol to a man who then caused a crash that killed two teenage sisters and injured four other people has been sanctioned by the state Regulation and Licensing Department. The state agency announced Tuesday that Blue Corn Cafe and Brewery on Cerrillos Road will be fined $10,000 and will be required to suspend alcohol sales for a 15-day period for its role in the 2010 tragedy. The crash resulted in the deaths of 19-year-old Del Lynn Peshlakai and 17-year-old Deshauna Peshlakai of Naschitti, who were in Santa Fe to participate in a high school basketball tournament. “A suspension of a liquor license is a significant consequence for a business,” Alcohol and Gaming Division Director Jennifer Anderson said in a statement issued Tuesday, “and these administrative penalties send a strong message that putting New Mexi-

By Steve Terrell The New Mexican
ojoaque Pueblo has filed a lawsuit against the state, claiming Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration has failed to negotiate on a new gambling compact in good faith. In the lawsuit filed in federal court on Friday, the pueblo, which operates two large gambling operations north of Santa Fe — the Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino and the Cities of Gold Casino — claims the Martinez administration wants an agreement that would further restrict tribal gambling opera-
tions and increase taxes and other fees. In a news release issued Tuesday, Pojoaque Pueblo Gov. George Rivera said, “We need to make the gaming industry in New Mexico competitive with other states. This requires eliminating many prohibitions and limitations placed on the industry going back two decades when tribal gaming was introduced in this state.” But a spokesman for Martinez insisted Tuesday that the administration has negotiated in good faith for well over a year. “It’s incredibly unfortunate that Pojoaque has chosen to litigate, not negotiate,” spokesman Enrique Knell said. “This is an unnecessary
and potentially costly tactic on their part, one that, unfortunately, tribal leadership has been seemingly determined to take for the past year.” The lawsuit asks the court to appoint a mediator to work with the two sides for no more than 60 days. Pojoaque’s current compact expires June 30, 2015. The lawsuit is just the latest flare-up in the long-running series of disagreements over revenue sharing between the pueblo and the state government. As the lawsuit itself notes,

WASHINGTON — The growing gap between the richest Americans and everyone else isn’t bad just for individuals. It’s hurting the U.S. economy. So says a majority of more than three dozen economists surveyed last week by The Associated Press. Their concerns tap into a debate that’s intensified as middleclass pay has stagnated while wealthier households have thrived. A key source of the economists’ concern: Higher pay and outsize stock market gains are flowing mainly to affluent Americans. Yet these households spend less of
their money than do low- and middle-income consumers who make up most of the population but whose pay is barely rising. “What you want is a broader spending base,” says Scott Brown, chief economist at Raymond James, a financial advisory firm. “You want more people spending money.” Spending by wealthier Americans, given the weight of their dollars, does help drive the economy. But analysts say the economy would be better able to sustain its growth if the riches were more evenly dispersed. For one thing, a plunge in stock prices typically leads wealthier Americans to cut sharply back on their spending. “The broader the improve-
ment, the more likely it will be sustained,” said Michael Niemira, chief economist at the International Council of Shopping Centers. A wide gap in pay limits the ability of poorer and middle-income Americans to improve their living standards, the economists say. About 80 percent of stock market wealth is held by the richest 10 percent of Americans. That means the stock market’s outsize gains this year have mostly benefited the already affluent. Those trends have fueled an escalating political debate. In a speech this month, President Barack Obama called income inequality “the defining challenge of our time.”

School board agrees to spend $457,000 next year on reforms
Police notes B-2
Time Out C-7
Santa Fe Public Schools took another step toward implementing a plan aimed at boosting high-school graduation rates when the school board Tuesday night committed to spending more than $457,000 next school year to fund reforms proposed by Superintendent Joel Boyd. While the board still has to formally allot that amount when it adopts its 2014-15 operating budget in the spring, Boyd said Tuesday’s vote allows administrators to start laying the groundwork for the rollout of an ambitious five-year plan come March or April. The first-year money will cover the cost of an Alternative Pathways program ($172,013), a magnet school ($85,231), a high school curriculum redesign that includes creating freshman academies and expanding Advance Placement and Advancement Via Individual Determination courses ($128,394), and the cost of the district’s secondary-reform facilitator ($72,032). Some costs — including staff and supplies — will be recurring, but some of the funding will be one-time expenditures, according to facilitator Michael Hagele, who presented a brief report on the plan to the board. Though some specifics remain unclear, the district seems committed to opening an International Baccalaureate magnet school with a new principal (at a $90,000 salary) as well as four teachers and a specialist ($279,000) at De Vargas Middle School. De Vargas, which serves grades seven and eight, will remain

Obama picks gays for Sochi Olympics President Barack Obama sent Russia a clear message about its treatment of gays and lesbians with who he is — and isn’t — sending to represent the United States at the Sochi Olympics. Billie Jean King will be one of two openly gay athletes in the U.S. delegation for the opening and closing ceremonies, Obama announced Tuesday. For the first time since 2000, however, the U.S. will not send a president, former president, first lady or vice president to the Games. Russia has come under fierce criticism for passing national laws banning “gay propaganda.”
Woman dies from new bird flu strain BEIJING — Chinese authorities said Wednesday that a 73-year-old Chinese woman died after being infected with a bird flu strain that had sickened a human for the first time, a development that the World Health Organization called “worrisome.” China’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed the woman in the city of Nanchang had been infected by the H10N8 bird flu virus, a strain that had not previously been found in people, the Jiangxi province health department said on its website. This is the second new bird flu strain to emerge in humans this year in China. Timothy O’Leary, spokesman for the World Health Organization’s regional office in Manila, said said though its source remains unknown, birds are known to carry it. The Associated Press

There might be other winners. Mega Millions lead director Paula Otto said Tuesday night that game officials’ count was not complete yet. California Lottery spokesman Alex Traverso said on Tuesday night that the ticket was sold at Jennifer’s Gift Shop in San Jose, Calif. “For us, the main thing we’d like to get across is the level of excitement we saw all across California,” Traverso said. “At one point, we were selling about 25,000 tickets per minute. “It’s been an amazing experience.

Three of the world’s four fastestrising search requests on Google were triggered by the deaths of famous men. Former South African President Nelson Mandela, who died earlier this month, occupied the top spot, followed by Fast & Furious movie star Paul Walker, who died in a Nov. 30 car crash. Glee TV series cast member Cory Monteith, who died of a drug overdose in July, ranked fourth in an annual retrospective released Tuesday. The Boston Marathon bombings in April that killed three people ranked sixth.

Otto said officials expected about 70 percent of the possible number combinations to be purchased for Tuesday’s drawing. The Mega Millions revamp comes about two years after Powerball changed some of its game rules and increased the price of a ticket to $2 and added $1 million and $2 million secondary prizes. Mega Millions remains $1, and an extra $1 option has been expanded to allow up to $5 million as a secondary prize. The changes in both games were aimed at creating bigger and faster growing jackpots. So far, it looks like it’s working. Mega Millions is played in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

NEW YORK — Gallant guide dog Orlando was just doing his duty. The black Lab bravely leapt on to the tracks at a Manhattan subway platform Tuesday after his blind owner lost consciousness and tumbled in front of an oncoming train. Cecil Williams, 61, and Orlando both escaped serious injury when the train passed over top of them — a miraculous end to a harrowing ordeal that began when Williams began to feel faint on his way to the dentist. “He tried to hold me up,” the emotional Williams said from his hospital bed, his voice breaking at times. Witnesses said Orlando began barking frantically and tried to stop Williams from falling from the platform. Matthew Martin told the New York Post that Orlando jumped down and tried to rouse Williams even as a train approached. “He was kissing him, trying to get him to move,” Martin said. Witnesses called for help and the train’s motorman slowed his approach as Williams and Orlando lie in the trench between the rails. “The dog saved my life,” Williams said. As Williams regained consciousness, he said he heard someone telling him to be still. Emergency workers put him on a stretcher and pulled him from the subway, and made sure Orlando was not badly injured. Williams was taken to a hospital where he is expected to recover, with Orlando at his bedside. Williams, of Brooklyn, has been blind since 1995, and Orlando is his second dog. The lab will be 11 on Jan. 5, and will be retiring soon, Williams said. His medical benefits will cover a new guide dog but won’t pay for a nonworking dog, so he’ll be looking for a good home for Orlando. If he had the money, Williams said, “I would definitely keep him.”

8, 14, 17, 20, 39; Mega Ball: 7. The cash option is estimated at $341 million before taxes. The jackpot now resets to $15 million for the next drawing, which is on Friday night. Mega Millions changed its rules in October to help increase the jackpots by lowering the odds of winning the top prize. That means the chances of winning the jackpot are now about 1 in 259 million. It used to be about 1 in 176 million, nearly the same odds of winning a Powerball jackpot. But that hasn’t stopped aspiring multimillionaires from playing the game. “Oh, I think there’s absolutely no way I am going to win this lottery,” said Tanya Joosten, 39, an educator at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee who bought several tickets Tuesday. “But it’s hard for such a small amount of money to not take the chance.” Tickets sold for Tuesday’s draw-

In brief JUBA, South Sudan — Fighting in South Sudan has killed up to 500 people, U.N. diplomats said Tuesday, and the United Nations fears the violence in the oil-rich East African country is “largely along ethnic lines.” The United States ordered its citizens to leave South Sudan immediately. The president of South Sudan, which is also the world’s newest country, has blamed the violence on a coup attempt by soldiers loyal to his former deputy, who belongs to a different ethnic group. As many as 20,000 people have taken refuge with the U.N. mission in the capital, Juba, the president of the Security Council, French Ambassador Gerard Araud, told reporters. Araud said the council received only “patchy information” in a special briefing Tuesday evening by the U.N. peacekeeping chief, with the cause of the violence yet unknown.

Plan to restore benefits for veterans supported
By late afternoon, the bipartisanship had faded as Republicans ratcheted up their criticism and maneuvered for political gain. A proposal aimed at removing the retirement provision failed on a near party-line vote of 46-54. Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan of North Carolina, who faces a difficult challenge for re-election, was the only senator to switch sides. In a further indication of the issue’s political importance, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire and more than a dozen other Democrats announced they were backing separate legislation to restore the military retirement benefits and make up the money by closing a tax loophole on offshore corporations. How could any commander in chief sign a bill that does this,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who faces a primary challenge back home in 2014. He did not mention that the legislation drew overwhelming support from
House Republicans only last week, including Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and the rest of the leadership. The provision related to military retirement was a relatively small part of legislation that itself was born of less-than-lofty ambitions. Rather than reaching for a so-called grand bargain to reduce long-term deficits, lawmakers decided to reduce across-the-board cuts already scheduled to take effect, restoring about $63 billion over two years. The legislation includes a projected $85 billion in savings elsewhere in the budget. Because spending would rise immediately but many of the savings would take place later in the decade, deficits would increase as a result of the measure for the current budget year and the two that follow. Over the 10-year period, the legislation measure shows a $23 billion cut in red ink — a trifle compared with the government’s overall debt of more than $17 trillion and rising.
Technology execs urge NSA reforms The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Tuesday discussed the troubled federal health care website, government surveillance and other issues with executives from Google, Twitter, Apple and several other leading technology companies. The White House says the meeting was focused on the administration’s efforts to repair the HealthCare.gov website and reform government information technology, but National Security Agency surveillance programs also were on the agenda. Some of the companies represented at the meeting, including Yahoo!, Microsoft and
Facebook, have urged Obama to curb surveillance programs after the extent of the information the United States collects through their systems was revealed. Several companies are introducing more encryption technology to shield users’ data from government spies and other prying eyes. The White House said afterward that Obama had the opportunity to hear directly from the CEOs as he and his aides study dozens of recommendations on government surveillance programs that a special task force delivered late last week, and as the White House finalizes its own internal
Snowden seeks asylum, offers to help Brazil investigate NSA spying RIO DE JANEIRO — National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden wrote in a lengthy open letter to the people of Brazil that he’s been inspired by the global debate ignited by his release of thousands of NSA documents and that the agency’s culture of indiscriminate global espionage “is collapsing.” In the letter, Snowden commended the Brazilian government for its strong stand against U.S. spying. Snowden wrote that he’d be willing to help the South American nation investigate NSA spying on its soil, but could not fully participate in doing so without being granted political asylum. The documents revealed Brazil is the top NSA target in Latin America, with spying that has included the monitoring of Brazilian President Dilma Rous-

review of these programs. The process is expected to conclude in January. “The president made clear his belief in an open, free, and innovative Internet and listened to the group’s concerns and recommendations, and made clear that we will consider their input as well as the input of other outside stakeholders as we finalize our review,” the White House said. In a statement afterward that was issued through the White House, the technology companies said they appreciated the chance to share their concerns with Obama. They urged him to “move aggressively” on reform. Chief executives from Netflix,
Comcast, LinkedIn, Etsy and AT&T attended the meeting. Obama had some fun with Reed Hastings, the co-founder and CEO of Netflix, to underscore his own troubles with Congress. “I was just wondering if Reed brought advance copies of House of Cards,” Obama asked, referring to the Netflix series about a hardnosed politician played by actor Kevin Spacey. Reed suggested Obama could make a cameo appearance on the show. “I wish things were that ruthlessly efficient,” Obama said. “I was looking at Kevin Spacey. I was saying this guy is getting a lot of stuff done.”

Graham was far from the only senator criticizing the military-retirement provision. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said he was voting for the legislation because it would cancel a $20 billion cut that would hit the Pentagon in January — and with the knowledge that the retirement provision could be changed before it took effect. All three voted against advancing the bill, but Republicans who were on the other side said they, too, were expecting lawmakers to reconsider the retirement action in 2014. “That gives some of us some comfort,” said Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, one of 12 GOP senators to side with all 53 Democrats and two independents in voting to ease the measure over a 60-vote threshold. It had been clear for several days that the overall measure was headed for Senate passage, particularly after the Republican-controlled House had voted overwhelmingly last week to approve it.

Continued from Page A-1 “The course of negotiations between the State and the Tribes, Pueblos and Nations within New Mexico, including Pojoaque, over the gambling issue has been lengthy and litigious.” Pojoaque Pueblo was one of two tribes that refused to sign compacts that other tribes agreed to in 2001. Pojoaque didn’t sign on until 2005. In 2007, the state agreed to extend the term of the 2001 compacts for tribes that agreed to a tax increase of up to 10.75 percent of net win, or gross gaming revenue. Pojoaque Pueblo again balked. According to the lawsuit, the “most glaring demonstration of the state’s failure” to negotiate in good faith is insisting that Pojoaque pay the increased tax under the 2007 compact. That would raise the revenuesharing requirement from 8 percent to 9.5 percent of the tribe’s gross gambling revenues. This percentage would increase gradually to 10.5 percent over the 23-year life of the compact. This “illegal tax” would result in “a substantial percentage of the Pueblo’s critical governmental revenue being deposited directly into the state’s general fund,” the lawsuit says. The lawsuit notes that while the state is demanding what the pueblo calls a “tax,” the state has lowered the corporate income tax from 7.6 percent to 5.9 percent. Pojoaque also objects on the state’s insistence that the pueblo limit its gaming operations to two, as well as “numerous provisions that are not directly related to the licensing

or regulation of Class III gaming.” Among these are certain restrictions related to alcohol service, such as not allowing drinks on the gaming floor, prohibiting complimentary food, drinks or lodging, and mandating certain employment benefits. Pojoaque, according to the suit, has been requesting compact negotiations with the state since June 2010. The state didn’t appoint a negotiator until April 2012. “Since May 23, 2012, representatives of the state and the tribe have met on numerous occasions in the context of negotiating a new compact. Although there has been progress made on a few, nonsubstantive issues, the state’s demands regarding the crux of critical issues have not changed,” the lawsuit said. Knell said: “We’ve engaged in nearly
20 months of good-faith negotiations with several tribes and nations, striving for an agreement that would be fair for both the tribes and the state. The terms being discussed in our current negotiations are very reasonable — consistent with federal law and previously negotiated compacts.” The Navajo Nation also is pushing for a new compact that would allow the tribe to open three more casinos in New Mexico and to lower the percentage of winnings it shares with the state. That proposed new compact originally passed through legislative committees in March, but the Legislature adjourned before it could be approved. The Legislature is expected to consider the new Navajo compact in the legislative session that begins in January. New Mexico currently has 27
tribe-owned-and-operated casinos and five non-Indian racetracks, each of which may operate up to 750 gaming machines. The state has gambling compacts with 14 tribes and received more than $134 million in taxes and a share of tribal casino profits during the last fiscal year. Pojoaque Pueblo has contributed a total of $10,000 to the campaign of Attorney General Gary King, who is running in next year’s Democratic gubernatorial primary in hopes of running against Martinez in the general election.

Alcohol: MADD to receive 10 percent of food sales Continued from Page A-1 cans at risk by contributing to drunk driving will not be tolerated in New Mexico.” Jim Hargrove, president of Santa Fe Dining — the company that manages Blue Corn and several other restaurants owned by Santa Fe businessman Gerald Peters — said in a written statement Tuesday that the company has “seriously examined its procedures” since the March 5, 2010, incident and has instituted new training protocols for employees concerning the serving of alcohol. The sisters died after Albuquerque resident James Ruiz, now 38, slammed a pickup into the back of their family’s vehicle on Cerrillos Road near the Santa Fe Auto Park after spending several hours drinking with friends, first at Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill and Bar and then at the Blue Corn Cafe and Brewery. The sisters’ parents, David and Darlene Peshlakai, also were injured in the accident, as were Ruiz and his two passengers, according reports at the time. The Peshlakai family’s dog also died in the incident. Ten hours after the crash, Ruiz’s blood alcohol level was recorded as 0.22, almost three times the level at which a driver legally is presumed drunk in New Mexico. Ruiz was found guilty of two counts of vehicular homicide and two counts of causing great bodily harm with a vehicle while driving under the influence. He was sentenced to 42 years in prison — his sentence was increased by 24 years because he had four prior DWI arrests — and is serving that time at a state prison in Grants. Nearly four years after the tragedy, its effects continue to ripple through the community. In addition to the sanctions announced Tuesday, at least two civil lawsuits stemming from the incident are still pending. One is a wrongful death claim filed

against Blue Corn, The Peters Corporation, Applebee’s International and related corporations by the Peshlakai family in 2010. The mother of the deceased girls — who now uses the name Darlene Thomas — said Tuesday she was afraid to make any comment because of ongoing litigation related to the incident. Another case involving the 2010 incident is a personal injury complaint that Ruiz filed in March against Applebee’s International, Blue Corn II Inc., Santa Fe Dining Inc. and The Peters Corporation. In that complaint, Ruiz seeks damages from the establishments that served him, claiming they violated their “common law duty of care” when they sold liquor to him even though he was obviously intoxicated.
The complaint also blames Gilbert Mendoza, the owner of the truck Ruiz was driving the night he smashed into the Peshlakai family, saying Mendoza knew Ruiz was drunk and knew he had previous arrests for driving while intoxicated, but gave him the keys to his truck anyway. Online court records indicate that complaint is still pending, though the most recent action was a request for a hearing filed in November. The final order by state regulators imposing sanctions on Blue Corn Cafe and Brewery was issued Dec. 4. It allowed the restaurant 30 days to pay the $10,000 fine and 60 days to fulfill the requirement for suspension of alcohol sales for 15 consecutive days. Hargrove said the business plans to fulfill that requirement in “mid-
January.” The bar and restaurant will donate 10 percent of all food sales made during that period to Mothers Against Drunk Driving in memory of the victims of the crash, according to a written statement from Hargrove. In a separate action announced Tuesday by the state Regulation and Licensing Department, El Alto Bar and Station in Las Vegas, N.M., was sanctioned for overserving a customer who subsequently caused a fatal crash in March 2010. An 18-yearold girl returning home from college was killed in that case, according to the state agency. The establishment was ordered to pay a $2,500 fine and cease serving alcohol for eight days.

Reforms: Formal allotment expected in the spring Continued from Page A-1 open and share some resources with the International Baccalaureate school, to be located at the back of the campus on Llano Street. Under the plan, the district will open a Transition Education Program at the Zona del Sol facility on the south side of town in January and a “twilight school” offering evening classes come next fall. Over time, it also plans to expand from its current offering of four career/college pathway programs to nine, specializing
in such topics as the arts, medicine, digital design and sustainability. Boyd started promoting this plan shortly after he came on as superintendent in the summer of 2012 in an effort to offer more options to students and keep them engaged in school. Just before Boyd was hired, the district approved a five-year strategic plan aimed at increasing its graduation rate from about 62 percent to 70 percent, but Boyd recently said his goal is to hit the 80 percent mark by the end of the five years. Some of the initial funding for the
startup money may come from the district’s impending closure on a sale of its vacant Manderfield Elementary School on Canyon Road, which should net almost $1 million dollars. Santa Fe developer Clare Maraist has announced her intent to transform the site into living spaces for artists and others. Board member Glenn Wikle said Tuesday that by the time the budget approval process rolls around in the spring, “We will need to know what’s what” in terms of specific recurring expenses under the plan.
During the meeting, Boyd announced that the Santa Fe district did not win approval of its application for a $10 million Race to the Top grant, though the district was one of about 30 national finalists among about 200 original applicants. The district submitted a plan for the grant money that included summer instructional programs and reducing the student-to-counselor ratio in schools.

Obama also called for an increase in the federal minimum wage, now $7.25. Republican leaders in the House oppose an increase, arguing that it would slow hiring. Several states are acting on their own. California, Connecticut and Rhode Island raised their minimum wages this year. Last month, voters in New Jersey approved an increase in the minimum to $8.25 an hour from $7.25. Income inequality has steadily worsened in recent decades, according to government data and academic studies. The most recent census figures show that the average income for the wealthiest 5 percent of U.S. households, adjusted for inflation, has surged 17 percent in the past 20 years. By contrast, average income for the middle 20 percent of households has risen less than 5 percent. The AP survey collected the views of private, corporate and academic economists on a range of issues. Among the topics were what policy decisions, if any, the Federal Reserve might announce after it ends a policy meeting Wednesday. Three-quarters of the economists surveyed don’t think the Fed is ready to announce a pullback in its economic stimulus. Speculation has been rising that the Fed will soon scale back its $85 billion in monthly bond purchases because of the economy’s steady gains. The bond purchases have been intended to keep long-term loan rates low to induce people to borrow and spend. Most of the economists think the Fed will begin slowing its bond buying in January or March. And most don’t think the economy needs the Fed’s help. Just over half say they believe growth could reach a healthy 3 percent annual pace even without the Fed’s extraordinary help. As Janet Yellen prepares to succeed Ben Bernanke as chairman early next year, most of the economists expect the Fed to become more “dovish” — that is, more focused on fighting unemployment than on worrying about higher inflation that might result from the Fed’s actions. The Senate could confirm Yellen as soon as this week. The economists are also confident that U.S. growth is picking up. Threequarters said the recovery, which officially began 4½ years ago, has yet to reach its peak. And nearly all think the next recession is at least three years away; half think it’s at least five years away. The economists forecast that growth will average 2.9 percent in 2014. That would be the healthiest annual pace since 2005. One reason they expect healthier growth is that the effects of tax increases and government spending cuts that kicked in early this year should fade. A budget bill that passed a pivotal test in the Senate on Tuesday will reverse some of those spending cuts. That should add slightly to economic growth. The bill also removes the threat of another government shutdown next year. Among the economists’ other views: u The Obama administration’s health care law will make little or no difference to the job market. About two-fifths said the law would cost jobs. None said it would increase hiring. The law has drawn fierce opposition from many small business owners, who say it will raise hiring costs by requiring companies with 50 or more employees to provide coverage starting in 2015. u The stock market isn’t in a bubble. While the Dow Jones industrial average reached record highs earlier this year, most economists said that higher profits largely justified the gains. u Europe will keep growing and avoid a recession in 2014. But growth will remain so tepid that inflation will be nearly non-existent. Nearly twothirds of the economists forecast that inflation won’t consistently reach the European Central Bank’s inflation target of 2 percent until 2016. u Inflation in the United States will remain low for the long run. A majority of economists think consumer inflation won’t consistently meet or exceed the Fed’s 2 percent target level until 2015 or later. Economists appear to be increasingly concerned about the effects of inequality on growth. Brown, the Raymond James economist, says that marks a shift from a few years ago, when many analysts were divided over whether pay inequality was worsening. Now, he says, “there’s not much denial of that … and you’re starting to see some research saying, yes, it does slow the economy.”

U.S. mulls military tribunal for Russian detainee By Adam Goldman and Karen DeYoung

Russia to buy $15B in Ukraine bonds By Maria Danilova and Vladimir Isachenkov The Associated Press
MOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday opened his wallet in the battle with the European Union over Ukraine’s future, saying Moscow will buy $15 billion worth of Ukrainian government bonds and sharply cut the price of natural gas for its economically struggling neighbor. The announcements came after Putin held talks in Moscow with Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, who is facing protests at home for his decision to shelve a pact with the EU in favor of closer ties with Moscow. Russia’s bailout package angered protesters, who immediately accused Yanukovych of selling out the country to the Kremlin and pressed for his ouster. Washington said the Kremlin agreements would not address concerns of the demonstrators in Kiev, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel dismissed what she described as a “bidding competition” over Ukraine. Putin’s move came as Ukraine said it desperately needs to get at least $10 billion in the coming months to avoid bankruptcy. The Fitch ratings agency has given Ukraine’s bonds a B-minus rating — “junk bond” territory. Putin sought to calm protesters in Kiev by saying he and Yanukovych didn’t discuss the prospect of Ukraine joining a Moscow-dominated economic bloc they fear will pull their country closer into Russia’s orbit. Yanukovych has maneuvered between Russia and the EU in an apparent search for the best possible deal. He has insisted Ukraine intends to sign the EU agreement but wants to negotiate better conditions.

Hamidullan is thought to have links to one or more insurgent groups and ties to Chechnya, a part of the Russian Federation where rebels have fought two unsuccessful wars for independence. Officials said Hamidullan remains committed to violent jihad and has sworn that he will return to the battlefield if he is released from prison. U.S. officials said that they have discussed the case with Moscow but that the Russians displayed little or no interest in his return. The senior official said transfers “are not always just up to us. Other countries have a say. Detainees have a say” in cases in which there are concerns about inhumane treatment.

He said Pakistan agreed to “take responsibility for ensuring, consistent with Pakistan law, that the transferred detainees will not pose a continuing threat to the United States and its allies.” The six are reportedly being held in a prison in Peshawar. The bulk of the foreign nationals in U.S. custody in Afghanistan are Pakistani; the others are known to be from Tunisia, Yemen, Uzbekistan and elsewhere. “The people the U.S. houses in Bagram are pretty bad,” said Rep.

on the battlefield, has been taken as a warning by U.S. officials about the future status of the non-Afghans still in American custody. Some of them have been held from the early days of the 12-year-old war. Unlike in the case of detainees at Guantanamo, U.S. courts have ruled that these prisoners have no right to lodge habeas corpus challenges to their imprisonment. Military officers conduct twice-yearly reviews of their cases in proceedings at which they have no right to outside legal representation, and none has been granted a civilian or full-fledged military judicial process. Although the International Commission of the Red Cross pays them visits, their names and nationalities are officially secret. Even the number of detainees had been secret until recently. After the prisoner-transfer agreement with Afghanistan in March, President Barack Obama for the first time acknowledged their existence in his biannual letter to Congress, reporting military action under the War Powers Resolution. At that point, they numbered 66. In his most recent report, on Friday, Obama put the number at 53, providing no explanation of what happened to the others. Six were repatriated last month to Pakistan, a fact revealed only because of a court case in which advocates for the men demanded more information. The case was dismissed by the U.S. Court of Appeals

Minnesota archbishop denies touching minor Roman Catholic leader steps down while probe ensues By Amy Forliti The Associated Press
MINNEAPOLIS — St. PaulMinneapolis Archbishop John Nienstedt announced Tuesday that he’s stepping down from public ministry while police investigate an allegation that he improperly touched a boy during a public photo session four years ago, an accusation he strongly denies. The announcement is the latest blow to an archdiocese that has faced intense scrutiny since a former employee went public with claims that church leaders mishandled sexual abuse allegations. In a letter posted on the archdiocese’s website, Nienstedt said he is accused of touching the boy on the buttocks during a photo session following a confirmation ceremony in 2009. Confirmation is a Roman Catholic sacrament in which a person becomes a full adult in the eyes of the church. Nienstedt said he learned of the accusation over the weekend and doesn’t know who is making the claim. “I presume he is sincere in believing what he claims, but I must say that this allegation is absolutely and entirely false,” Nienstedt wrote. “I have never once engaged in any inappropriate contact with a minor.” Nienstedt already had been facing public calls for his resignation. In recent months, police have launched investigations into several abuse claims and Nienstedt’s top deputy stepped down. On Sunday, Nienstedt went before two services at a suburban Minneapolis church to apologize for the mess, telling parishioners: “I am here to apologize for the indignation that you justifiably feel. You deserve better.” Nienstedt was a polarizing figure in Minnesota even before the clergy abuse scandal flared. Some of the archdiocese’s 825,000 Catholics were angered in 2010 after he mailed out a DVD against gay marriage. They were angered again in 2012 after the church spent $650,000 in a failed effort to ban same-sex marriage in Minnesota. Nienstedt referenced critics
Archbishop John Nienstedt, head of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, is taking a leave of absence during an investigation that he touched an underage male. Nienstedt denies the charge. RICHARD TSONG-TAATARII/THE STAR TRIBUNE
in his letter Tuesday, saying he has “taken strong stands on the moral teachings of the Church and been criticized for it.” He added: “I am a sinner, but my sins do not include any kind of abuse of minors.” Nienstedt said he normally stands for photos with one hand on his staff and the other hand either on the right shoulder of the newly confirmed person, or on a stole that hangs from his chest. “I do that deliberately, and there are hundreds of photographs to verify that fact,” he wrote. Accusations of child sex abuse against individual bishops are rare. Since 2002, when the abuse crisis erupted in the United States, a few U.S. bishops have stepped down after being accused of molesting minors, including two in the Diocese of Palm Beach, Fla. Another, Bishop Thomas Dupre in Springfield, Mass., was indicted in 2004 on a child rape charge, becoming the first bishop in the nation to be indicted on an abuse claim. However, the case was dropped after the prosecutor concluded the statute of limitations had expired. There have also been highprofile cases of bishops being falsely accused, including Cardinal Joseph Bernardin of Chicago in the 1990s. Bradford Colbert, a resident adjunct professor at William Mitchell College of Law, said such allegations are difficult. “You shouldn’t be able to convict someone just because someone says it happened, but it becomes a matter of who do you believe?” Colbert said. “It
can be really difficult on both sides. … I think the thing to do is just to wait and see and not assume that he’s guilty.” The archdiocese said in a statement that it learned of the allegation last week after someone within the church brought it forward. The archdiocese said it instructed that person to go to police. St. Paul police said they opened an investigation Monday. At a news conference Tuesday, St. Paul police Chief Thomas Smith did not provide details about Nienstedt’s case. But he said the archdiocese has not cooperated fully with its other ongoing investigations and has declined to make clergy available to investigators. The archdiocese released a statement saying, “As we have stated repeatedly, the archdiocese seeks to cooperate with the police and all civil authorities.” The archdiocese said it has asked for an opportunity to meet with St. Paul police. That meeting is set for Wednesday. Auxiliary Bishop Lee Piche will cover Nienstedt’s public duties during the investigation. Nienstedt’s decision to remove himself from ministry comes as parishes are preparing for Christmas services, when they record their largest attendance of the year and many Catholics make large donations. “Any time you have an accusation of a serious nature such as this, it can be demoralizing, but especially in the context of all that’s happened in the archdiocese there and around the country,” said Mark Brumley, chief executive of Ignatius Press, which Pope Benedict XVI chose as his English-language publisher.
Ingredients disappearing as consumers eyeball food labels Chemicals can be bull’s-eye for criticism By Candice Choi The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Take another look at that food label. An ingredient or two might have vanished. As Americans pay closer attention to what they eat, food and beverage companies are learning that unfamiliar ingredients can invite criticism from online petitions and bloggers. The risk of damaging publicity has proven serious enough that some manufacturers have reformulated top-selling products to remove mysterious, unpronounceable components that could draw suspicion. Earlier this year, for example, PepsiCo Inc. said it would stop using brominated vegetable oil in Gatorade and find a another way to evenly distribute color in the sports drink. Last year, Starbucks said it would stop using a red dye made of crushed bugs based on comments it received “through a variety of means,” including an online petition, and switch to a tomato-based extract. Kraft Foods plans to replace artificial dyes with colors derived from natural spices in select varieties of its macaroni and cheese, a nod to the feedback it’s hearing from parents. Ali Dibadj, a Bernstein analyst who covers the packaged food and beverage industry, says the changes reflect a shift from “democratization to activism” by consumers. “It used to be that people
You’ve seen them.
SAMPLE OF REMOVED INGREDIENTS Here are some recent examples of changes made to satisfy online demands: u Starbucks last year removed cochineal extract, a red dye made from crushed bugs, from its food and drinks after an online petition. The company says the decision was the result of customer feedback received through “a variety of means.” u Earlier this year, PepsiCo removed brominated vegetable oil from Gatorade. An online petition had noted the ingredient’s link to flame retardants. PepsiCo said the decision was the result of broader customer feedback. u Kraft Foods says it will reformulate select varieties of its macaroni and cheese next year to use natural colors. A petition by a popular food blogger had asked the company to remove the artificial dyes. The Associated Press
would just decide not to buy the product. Now they’re actually agitating for change,” Dibadj said. “There’s a bullhorn — which is the Internet — so you can get a lot of people involved very quickly.” Companies stand by the safety of their recipes. Although they don’t typically provide details on production decisions, their reasons for using certain ingredients can include cost and manufacturing efficiencies. Still, food and beverage makers can be sensitive about broadcasting any changes. Chick-fil-A, for instance, has been removing artificial dyes and high-fructose corn syrup from its dressings and sauces. The Atlanta-based chain is also testing a “clean ingredient bun” but has not alerted customers. “The reason companies don’t publicize it is that they don’t want to bring attention to these ingredients. They want to slowly start to remove them
until they’re all gone,” said Vani Hari, who runs the site FoodBabe.com and has pressured companies to remove artificial dyes and other ingredients. There are no numbers tracking how many companies are reformulating products in response to consumer demand. High-fructose corn syrup, for example, has gained a negative image in recent years and has been blamed for fueling bad eating habits. The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a health advocacy group, says the sweetener is no more harmful than ordinary sugar in large amounts. But Kroger Co. decided to remove it from storebrand cereals following surveys with consumers in 2011. The Kroger isn’t alone. In the past decade, the use of highfructose corn syrup in foods and drinks has fallen 18 percent to 6.1 million tons last year, according to market researcher Euromonitor International.

After Newtown: Still waiting for a vote
n Dec. 14, 2012, I was duck hunting in California when my phone buzzed with a breaking news alert. There had been a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. As the hours unfolded, more details surfaced. Twenty children — all of them 6 or 7 years old — and six adults had been gunned down in a senseless act of violence. In the days and weeks that followed the shooting, we pledged to never forget. We said this time would be different. We said that something must be done. It has now been a year. In that year more than 10,000 people have been killed by someone using a gun. And in the U.S. House of Representatives, the majority party hasn’t allowed a single vote to prevent further acts of gun violence. It’s not because there hasn’t been a bill on which to vote. I have written and introduced bipartisan legislation expanding comprehensive and enforceable criminal background checks to cover commercial firearm sales such as those at gun shows and over the Internet. It is the same legislation that was authored by A-rated NRA Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Pat Toomey, R-Pa., and supported by a bipartisan majority in the Senate. Sixteen states, including California, already require criminal background checks at gun shows and for Internet sales. However, the 34 other states only require checks for purchases made through a licensed gun dealer. That means criminals in California can drive across the state line, load up with guns at a gun show, then drive back into our state. If my bill was passed, criminals, terrorists, domestic abusers, the dangerously mentally ill and other prohibited purchasers wouldn’t be able to bypass a background check by simply going online or to a gun show. People on all sides of the gun violence prevention issue have said their goal is to keep

Strengthen city’s finance law
S guns out of dangerous hands. But you cannot achieve this goal without background checks. Background checks are the only way of knowing if a person buying a gun is a criminal, a terrorist or dangerously mentally ill. The evidence shows background checks work when they are used. Nationally last year, background checks identified and denied 88,000 sales to prohibited purchasers at licensed dealers. However, there is no way of knowing if those 88,000 prohibited purchasers, after being denied at a licensed dealer, then bought a gun at a gun show or over the Internet with no questions asked. This is a huge loophole that costs lives. You don’t have to look any further than the sister of my State of the Union guest Elvin Daniel to see this is true. Elvin’s sister Zina had a restraining order against her husband that prevented him from passing a background check. Nevertheless, Zina’s husband was able to go online and buy a .40-caliber semiautomatic handgun with which he killed Zina and two others in Wisconsin. The House majority has refused to allow a vote on my legislation to close this loop-
hole. While they know 90 percent of the American public supports background checks, they fear a vote in favor of my legislation would upset their extreme-right base and cause political backlash from the beltway National Rifle Association. This political calculus has trumped voting on legislation that will help save lives. Critics of my legislation have used multiple arguments to justify their inaction. They have argued that it’s unnecessary because criminals never will submit to a background check. Under my bill, if a criminal is trying to buy a gun online or at a gun show and are unwilling or unable to pass a background check, then they will not get a gun. This drastically reduces the number of places criminals can easily access guns. Critics have also called my bill anti-Second Amendment. It is not. I am a gun owner and support the rights of lawful Americans to own firearms. In reality, my bill is pro-Second Amendment. It provides reasonable exceptions so people won’t have to get a background check if they inherit a family rifle, borrow a shotgun for a hunting trip, or purchase a gun from a friend, a hunting buddy or neighbor. It bans the creation of a federal registry. It allows active duty military
to buy firearms in their home states and the state in which they are stationed. And it authorizes the use of a recent state concealed carry permit in lieu of a background check. There are 187 members of Congress who have co-sponsored my background checks bill. More have said they would vote for the bill. Why hasn’t it been put up for a vote? Why isn’t every member of Congress a co-sponsor of an anti-criminal, pro-Second Amendment bill that strengthens gun rights and saves lives? Those are questions every constituent should ask their representative in Congress. Shortly after hearing of the tragic news out of Newtown, we learned about the heroism of a teacher named Victoria Soto. After hearing gunshots, she hid her students in a closet and put her body in between them and the gunman. Victoria was shot and killed, but she saved the lives of all the kids in her classroom. At 27, she was brave enough to give her life. The House majority should be brave enough to give her a vote. Democratic U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson represents California’s 5th Congressional District. He wrote this for The Sacramento Bee.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Don’t forget humans in being humane
erhaps the $559,000 the city has spent on “humane relocation” of prairie dogs (“Too much to be gentle?,” Dec. 16) in the last decade might better have been used for humane support of needy humans in Santa Fe. With many hundreds, if not several thousands, of homeless, hungry people in our city, sadly including children and teenagers, a contribution to Youth Shelters & Family Services, to the Interfaith Community Shelter Group, to St. Elizabeth Shelter or to the Food Depot, to name just four local organizations, seems infinitely more humane than spending $87 to move one prairie dog to a different location. That $87 would provide a dinner to more than a dozen people who are down on their luck. Are our priorities out of whack? Yes. Should we make some changes? Yes. Can we? Yes. Will we? George Simon

A bad play The city ethics board got it wrong! As one member stated, (Patti Bushee’s actions don’t) “pass the smell test.” Patti Bushee continues to call the complaints against her “political theater.” The fact is, she wrote the script! But for the ethics complaints, we never would have known how she secretly engaged in seeking private funds for her campaign (including $1,750 of her own funds) in violation of the public financing ordinance. Her claims of support for public financing

The past 100 years Dec. 18, 1963: Nearly 8,000 New Mexico boys and girls took part in 4-H projects in 1963. Bernalillo County had the largest 4-H enrollment. San Juan County was second. Other counties in the order of their enrollments were San Miguel, Valencia, Santa Fe, Lea and Chavez. Each of New Mexico’s 32 counties has youngsters in the 4-H Club program. More than 800 Indian youngsters were enrolled in 4-H projects as well.
of campaigns are hollow indeed. The ethics board is not merely umpires calling balls and strikes. It has to give meaning to the laws it is enforcing. As Bushee has said, “If one of the candidates or any of the candidates don’t agree to playing by the rules and run a clean campaign, I hope the voters take notice.” Patti, they will! Edward T. Stein
anta Fe’s campaign finance law needs work. Its purpose — to keep special-interest money out of city elections — remains worthwhile, even noble. But we are troubled over the decision earlier this week by the city Ethics and Campaign Review Board that it lacks jurisdiction over what happens before a candidate decides to use public financing. The facts are clear. Earlier this year, longtime City Councilor Patti Bushee was thinking about running for mayor. She did not know whether she would seek public financing. In fact, she was ready to go private and fundraise. To that end, she hired a political consultant. That consultant, Tarin Nix, was paid $1,750 for services in June. She was let go by the Bushee campaign two days later. Eventually, Bushee decided to run a publicly financed campaign. In November, someone from Bushee’s campaign called Nix and asked her essentially to “swap checks,” handing back $1,750 so she could then be repaid from the seed money that candidates are allowed to spend under city statute. (Candidates can spend up to $6,000 in that period before they get public financing, although those dollars can only come from $100 contributions.) The ethics board decided it has no jurisdiction over the period before a candidate becomes public because of the way the statute is written. As several members rightly said, the finance law has a hole that needs to be plugged. After all, if someone is just “thinking” about a race and spends money, how will the public later be able to track their expenses? How will the public be able to identify donors? Should the previously private candidate be able to switch to public financing? These are questions that need answers so candidates can stay within the law’s requirements. Bushee, in a Facebook post to supporters, said, “the City’s Ethics and Campaign Review Board ruled this afternoon that the complaint was without merit and could not be heard or investigated.” That’s a generous spin on the actual decision — which is that the board decided it had little jurisdiction in the matter. That decision doesn’t mean the obviously conflicted board members weren’t concerned about what had happened. Board member Kristina Martinez had this to say: “I do agree that there appears to be a hole in the code. But I do have big concerns with sort of allowing someone to get by on a technicality, for lack of a better term. What went on in this case, for me, doesn’t pass the smell test.” Part of the failure to pass the “smell test,” as Martinez put it, comes from the oath that candidates take concerning how their money has been spent. Bushee signed a piece of paper saying all of her expenses were paid out of her seed money account. That might have been the after-the-fact intention, but it is not factual. Bushee paid Nix’s expenses initially, and in an amount exceeding the $100 limit in the law. Without allowing candidates to go hog-wild and spend thousands before changing their minds and dipping into the public till, the city statute needs to be amended to deal with the period before financing kicks in. A candidate sincerely can change her mind. We believe Bushee when she says she started out thinking she would run a privately financed race, switched gears and then tried to make it right. However, we also wish that she had been clearer when signing the oath about how her campaign was spending money — a fuller explanation at the beginning would have cut the complaint off at the pass. None of this is to say that Santa Fe should abandon public financing. Any new law — especially one this ambitious — needs reworking to become fully effective. Whoever is elected mayor come March should make it a priority to make this law stronger and more comprehensive. In New York City, where public financing of city elections works, the Campaign Finance Board holds hearings — required by law — after each election cycle and issues a report suggesting improvements. City officials and public interest groups also can suggest changes. Such self-examination is necessary to improve Santa Fe’s law. Otherwise, we will be left with gray areas and a board that — rightly, in this case — must wring its hands and give candidates a pass.

Nirvana and Kiss head to Rock Hall By Mesfin Fekadu The Associated Press
NEW YORK irvana, Kiss and Peter Gabriel will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year. The Rock Hall announced Tuesday that Hall and Oates, Linda Ronstadt and Cat Stevens also will be inducted April 10 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Artists are eligible for induction 25 years after their first release. Nirvana received a nomination in its first year of eligibility, and next year the band will celebrate the 25th anniversary of its debut, Bleach. The induction comes 20 years after frontman Kurt Cobain committed suicide at age 27. “For once … I’m speechless. From the basements, to the dingy clubs, to the broken down vans, to … the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,” former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, now the frontman for Foo Fighters, said in a statement Tuesday. “I’d like to thank the committee not only for this induction, but also for recognizing Nirvana for what we were: pure rock and roll.” “Thank you most of all to Kurt Cobain,” bassist Krist Novoselic said in the statement issued on behalf of Nirvana. “And to everyone who’s kept rock music going strong for 60 years and counting.” This year also marked firsttime nominations for Hall and Oates, Gabriel and Ronstadt. Kiss and Stevens, who have been nominated in the past, made the cut after being absent from the list for several years. Peter Criss, Kiss’ original drummer and vocalist, said the band changed rock forever by raising the bar for live performances. “We were four guys from New York City who brought Barnum & Bailey into rock and roll,” he told The Associ-

Carol singer Katherine Moss of U. of Illinois
CHICAGO — The phones are jingling off the hook at Dial-a-Carol, a student-run project on the University of Illinois’ Champaign campus. It’s a hotline of sorts for people who prefer hearing holiday music sung by a choir of amateurs who’ve been up all night studying. The carols echoing in the lobby of Snyder Hall may be out of tune at times, but the voices ring around the clock with youthful energy. “They’re there 24 hours, whether it’s 3 a.m. or 3 a.m. where you are,” said Kirsten Ruby, spokeswoman for the university’s housing department. “It doesn’t have to be business hours here.” Students received 3,450 total calls through Tuesday afternoon, coming in from all 50 states and 17 countries, Ruby said. The program was started in 1960 by a former hall secretary, Betty Gordon, and a group of dorm residents. Last year, the student volunteers took more than 4,000 calls from people all over the world requesting “Jingle Bells,” “White Christmas” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” Phone lines are open until just before midnight Wednesday. The number is 217-332-1882. The Associated Press

The Hall of Fame is in Cleveland, but the location of the induction ceremony varies from year to year. “We wanted the makeup and the costumes and the bombs,” Criss said. “Our idea was to give people a hell of a lot more for their money. We changed music by insisting you can’t go up there and just sing anymore. That’s going to stand forever.” Singer/guitarist Paul Stanley, who with bassist Gene Simmons has anchored Kiss’ changing lineup for 40 years, said the band never cared when critics slammed them. And Ace Frehley, the band’s original lead guitarist, said news of the induction was a welcome pick-me-up just days after his suburban New York home was gutted by fire. “I’m sad about [the house] but the news I got last night will lift my spirits,” he told the AP. “It’s a great honor, and a long time coming. Our fans never gave up on us.” Also at the ceremony, Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham and the late Beatles manager Brian Epstein will receive Ahmet Ertegun awards, a non-performing honor.

Grand jury to determine fate of cop involved in high-speed chase, death By Uriel J. Garcia The New Mexican

A New Mexico State Police spokesman said Tuesday the department’s investigation of a Nov. 7 incident in which one of the department’s officers shot and killed a 39-year-old Santa Fe woman after a highspeed chase has been turned over to the district attorney. District Attorney Angela “Spence” Pacheco said she will review the Jeanette case and present evidence to a grand Anaya jury to determine if the shooting was justifiable. Pacheco said she received part of the state police report on Friday and the rest of it on Tuesday. Pacheco said the grand jury most likely would hear the case some time in January. State police have said that the incident began about 1 a.m. near St. Francis Drive and Alta Vista Street when the officer, Oliver Wilson, saw Jeanette Anaya driving erratically and she refused to stop. Police have said he chased her at speeds up to 87 miles per hour before he bumped her vehicle with his patrol car and she crashed into a wall in a residential area, then backed up toward Wilson and hit his car before he fired his handgun into the car, killing Anaya.

He said Santa Fe National Forest and Bandelier National Monument, lands adjacent to the preserve, also have ceremonial and archaeological sites but still allow open, unstructured hiking. He also noted that hunters, ranchers and researchers already have more open access to the preserve, outside of areas that are restricted due to pueblo activities.

New Mexico got dinged recently in another one of those national rankings, this time for its animal protection laws. The Animal Legal Defense Fund, a national nonprofit, said in a new report that New Mexico’s animal abuse laws are the fourth worst in the nation, just ahead of South Dakota, Iowa and Kentucky. The five states with the strongest animal abuse laws in descending order are Illinois, Oregon, Michigan, Maine and California. Lora Dunn, one of the authors of the study, said Tuesday afternoon that the group considered 15 categories of
provisions in state law. Among the shortcomings in New Mexico’s law, according to the report, are inadequate felony provisions for neglect of animals, lack of felony provisions for abandonment, no increased penalties when the abuse is committed in front of children and lack of a requirement for veterinarians to report suspected abuse. Dunn also said most states have specific laws against animal sexual assault, but
New Mexico does not. Dunn said that in most states animal neglect is a felony after the first or second offense. But in New Mexico, animal neglect — defined as “abandoning or failing to provide necessary sustenance to an animal” — is a misdemeanor until the fourth offense.

The assistant district attorney responsible for prosecuting a drunken-driving case against Santa Fe actor Wes Studi said Tuesday part of the reason for a recent plea deal was that there were circumstances that could have made a conviction difficult if the case went to trail. Studi — who was captured on a police video camera Wes Studi angrily cursing at police officers after he was placed in custody — received probation as a result of his arrest in July, during which he refused to submit to field sobriety tests or blood or breath alcohol tests and admitted to being drunk. “As intoxicated as the video shows him,” prosecutor Jason Lidyard said, “there was a passenger and she was not intoxicated. It was her car and she was going to take the stand and say she was driving.” However, in a police recording of the incident, after an officer tells Studi that the female passenger told an officer at the scene that Studi had been driving, Studi says, “Fine, I was driving,” which he followed by saying the officer should “throw me in … jail.” Lidyard said Studi was already out of the car when a passing motorist came upon him trying to repair a Volvo with two damaged tires in the

Shooting: Officer appealed dismissal Continued from Page B-1 Muñoz, have expressed frustration because state police have withheld much information, including video from the patrol car’s dashboard camera and the initial incident report. “We’re trying to get as much information as we can from external sources because we’re not able to get anything from law enforcement, and we would really like to see the video,” said Mark Donatelli, lawyer for the uninjured Muñoz, who he described as a friend of Anaya’s. Because of the pending grand-jury investigation, Donatelli declined to discuss what Muñoz has told him about what happened that night. Tom Clark, lawyer for Anaya’s family, repeatedly has said the video should reveal what happened but he, too, hasn’t received much informa-
tion from the law enforcement agency. The case has added to public scrutiny of state police, which was heightened after the release of video of an incident near Taos that led to the firing of another state police officer on Dec. 5. The video of the Oct. 28 incident showed state Officer Elias Montoya shooting his handgun toward a fleeing minivan containing five children and a Tennessee woman who had refused to accept a speeding ticket. That incident gathered national attention after the video was released. Montoya, who had been with the force for 12 years, has since appealed his dismissal. Contact Uriel J.

Late fall fire still burning in Big Sur The Associated Press
BIG SUR, Calif. — An unusual late fall wildfire fueled by drought conditions destroyed more than a dozen homes and forced about 100 people to flee the forested mountains of the scenic Big Sur region overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The slow-moving fire in Los Padres National Forest near state Highway 1 had consumed 769 acres, or a little over a square mile, by Tuesday night and was 20 percent contained. It has destroyed 22 buildings, Los Padres National Forest spokesman Lynn Olson said. About 14 of those structures were homes, she said. No injuries have been reported. About 830 firefighters have deployed to the area, and thus far, weather has been working in their favor, said Mark Nunez, the incident commander of the team fighting the fire. But Wednesday would be another matter, depending on which way the wind blows. Olson said a weather front was approaching. “It could possibly help us. It could possibly hurt us,” she said. Big Sur — miles of rugged coast, cliffs and wilderness — is a popular tourist destination

about 150 miles south of San Francisco with high-end resorts and beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean. The fire was burning a little more than a mile from Ventana Inn and Spa, a favorite spot among celebrities where former Facebook president and Napster co-founder Sean Parker got married in June.
In the summer of 2008, a lightning-sparked wildfire forced the evacuation of Big Sur and blackened 250 square miles before it was contained. That blaze burned more than a dozen homes. California’s fire season traditionally peaks by mid-fall, but the drought of the last several years has given the state essen-
tially year-round danger. The Big Sur fire began Sunday, fueled by dry vegetation and fanned by winds. Among the homes destroyed was that of Big Sur Fire Chief Martha Karstens. She tearfully told reporters Monday night that the loss of her home of 23 years had not yet sunk in.

DWI: Studi may have been arrested in 1972 Continued from Page B-1 middle of Old Pecos Trial near San Mateo Road about 1 a.m. on July 26. Lidyard added that the deal Studi received is the standard plea bargain offered to a first-time DWI suspect who faces an aggravated DWI charge after refusing to submit to sobriety testing. Studi will be on supervised probation for 364 days, participate in drug and alcohol screening — and, if necessary, treatment — complete DWI school and have an ignition interlock device installed in his vehicle for a year, plus serve 24 hours of community service by working with film students at the Santa Fe University of Art and Design. “We treated him just like any other DWI
offender and we obtained a conviction, which is important in the sense that if he offends in the future he will have a prior conviction,” Lidyard said. Lidyard said the only penalty Studi avoided via the deal was a mandatory two-day incarceration that would have been required if had he been convicted of first-offense aggravated DWI, and even that penalty could have been converted to electronic monitoring by a judge. Lidyard said there was a reference on Studi’s driver’s license record that he might have been arrested on a drunken-driving charge in Oklahoma in 1972. But, Lidyard said, said the court with jurisdiction in that decades-old case had no record of the matter so it couldn’t be used as evidence
of a prior DWI conviction for Studi, whose legal name is Wesley Studie. Studi’s attorney in Santa Fe, John Day, said his client — who has appeared in numerous films including Avatar and Dances with Wolves — “took responsibility for his actions from the start,” as evidenced by the fact that he issued a public apology soon after the arrest. “Both sides recognized the strengths and weakness of their cases,” Day said. “Given the facts, this was a very reasonable outcome for both sides. I’ve been impressed with how he’s handled this. This concludes the case and he’s moving forward.” Contact Phaedra Haywood at 986-3068 or email@example.com.

RENO, Nev. — A suicidal gunman opened fire at a Reno hospital campus Tuesday, killing one person, critically wounding two others and sending police on a door-to-door search within the facility amid the chaos. The wounded victims were in surgery and one of them is a doctor, the Nevada Department of Public Safety said. The gunman killed himself after the shooting, which Reno Deputy Police Chief Tom Robinson said doesn’t appear to be random. “I wouldn’t say they were targeted, but I don’t think it was just a random,” he told reporters outside the medical building on the campus of the Renown Regional Medical Center. Investigators said they were confident no one else was involved.

In brief School board declares independence The Santa Fe school board on Tuesday unanimously approved an “Ode to Joy” resolution that stipulates that it will do everything in its power to restore a love of teaching and learning in the classroom in the face of state and federal mandates that, it states, limit creative methods of teaching. Board member Steven Carrillo, who introduced the resolution, said, “We are declaring our independence from our shackles and bondage being inflicted upon us by the government.” Board President Linda Trujillo said she supported the move, though the language of the resolution is “strong.” Board member
Navajo Nation could receive $1B for contaminated sites By Felicia Fonseca
Officers escort witnesses to a bus at the Renown Regional Medical Center after a lone gunman shot and injured four people before killing himself Tuesday in Reno, Nev.
McGee saddled the company with hundreds of millions of dollars of environmental legacy lawsuits and stripped it of its most valuable assets and cash. Gropper found that KerrMcGee “acted with intent to hinder and delay the debtors’ creditors.” He also determined the transaction left Tronox insolvent and undercapitalized, and financial damages are due. Other claimants in the case include the U.S. government, states and environmental response trusts. Tronox filed for bankruptcy protection in 2009 and emerged about two years later. The lawsuits were transferred to trusts as part of the bankruptcy restructuring. A bankruptcy settlement in 2010 provided $14.5 million to the Navajo Nation and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to address contamination at Kerr-McGee-run sites on the reservation.
Any money awarded will help the tribe do preliminary screening of the sites, determine the extent of contamination and establish cleanup goals.

Glenn Wikle suggested the board incorporate the language into the district’s five-year strategic plan. Among other points, the resolution notes that state and federal mandates regarding testing, the state’s A-F school grading system and teacher-evaluation systems negatively impact “the quality and scope of instruction.” It also calls for the district to reinstate its Employee Assistance Program, which was dropped about five years ago in a budgetcutting move. The board will likely hold a second reading of the resolution early next year.

Police didn’t release their identities and had yet to remove the bodies. “They are in the middle of a crime scene,” he said. “We’re in the middle of an investigation and we don’t want to compromise that by rushing up to identify them.” “As far as the suspect goes, we still don’t have a solid identity yet but we are working several leads on who he is,” Robinson said. Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Gail Powell said the wounded doctor is a woman but she had no other information about the shooting at the Center for Advanced Medicine, a modern structure connected by a second-floor walkway to the main hospital and a parking structure. Robinson said there were about 100 people in the building when the shooting was reported at 2:05 p.m.
under reconstruction, the Santa Fe school board is preparing a neighborhood-notification plan. The plan will include stakeholders in early discussions regarding any future school construction plans. The four-point plan includes holding a project kickoff meeting, a design-review meeting, a construction kickoff meeting and an open house upon completion of the project. The district’s plan to rebuild Atalaya angered many neighbors of the east-side school who claimed they knew nothing about its scope. Since then, the district has attempted to display more sensitivity regarding communication about construction plans, though as a state entity, the district isn’t required to do so under city ordinances. The board plans to continue shaping the process into early next year. The New Mexican

Arizona’s Ka’Deem Carey jumps into the end zone for a touchdown as teammate Drew Robinson watches during the Nov. 23, 2012, game against Arizona State in Tucson, Ariz.
Carey, a junior, is second in the nation in rushing after leading last year, but said he thinks he’s a better player now. “I worked hard to improve my speed and strength in the offseason while keeping my speed,” Carey said. “I put on 10 pounds of weight and I think that’s helped my durability. I also wanted to be a better blocker away from the ball. Blocking for our quarterback and our receivers is key to our system and

No. 1 UConn overwhelms No. 2 Duke
Late-game rally not enough for depleted Lobos
By Joedy McCreary The Associated Press
DURHAM, N.C. — No. 1 Connecticut came into Cameron Indoor Stadium and did something no other team in women’s basketball has been able to do. 1 UConn 83 The Huskies dominated Duke. 2 Duke 61 Again. UConn routed the second-ranked Blue Devils 83-61 on Tuesday night behind 21 points and a career-high seven 3-pointers from Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis in her first game back from an injury. Breanna Stewart had 24 points and 11 rebounds for the Huskies (11-0), and Stefanie Dolson had 14 points and Bria Hartley finished with 13. UConn shot 49 percent, held the Blue Devils without a field goal for a critical 8½-minute stretch while pushing its lead well into the 20s and turned the 52nd meeting of Nos. 1 and 2 into the latest blowout in this series. “I think I would be less than honest if I said I thought we could come in here and win by 20,” said coach Geno Auriemma, who earned his 850th career win. “Simply because we haven’t played in [12 days]. We weren’t sure what we were going to get from [Mosqueda-Lewis and Morgan Tuck]. And I thought Duke being at home and they’ve got a bunch of upperclassmen … it would be a little bit different.”

ALBUQUERQUE as this the cold splash of reality that woke up The University of New Mexico men’s basketball team? Or was it simply a case of a bad run of injuries that led to a bad run for the Lobos? Those questions will linger — for at least the rest of this week, and maybe for the rest of the season. NMSU 67 The Lobos were UNM 61 without the services of junior point guard Hugh Greenwood, who wore a grey polo shirt and a black brace over his right hand and wrist, for their rematch with in-state rival New Mexico State. And sophomore guard Cleveland “Pancake” Thomas sported a face guard to protect a broken nose suffered during practice Monday. Having to look to a much-maligned bench to offer some support, that contribution was left lacking on Tuesday night as the Aggies jumped out quickly on UNM and then held off a late-game surge to leave The Pit with a 67-61 win and split the season series at a game apiece. For the Aggies, it was a step in the right direction as they won their second straight game after a four-game slide that the Lobos (7-3) contributed to with a 79-70 win on Dec. 4. That’s even with UNM not at full strength. “Not having players are a part of the game,” NMSU head coach Marvin Menzies said. “You gotta have a bench, you gotta have a team willing to step up when there is a piece missing.”

Horsemen keep winning by stifling their foes

It’s really no secret that It’s really the defense head coach Ron Geyer’s and the discipline of the St. Michael’s routinely Horsemen that allows put up minimal points Edmundo them to be successful. over the years while remaining a favorite The Horsemen may Carrillo only average 45 points a in Class AAA to win a Commentary game, but they’ve given state championship at up an average of just the same time. It is not uncommon for a Horsemen game 36 points this season. to finish in the 30s. As a matter of After being tied with the Jaguars fact, they just beat Capital in the at halftime, the Horsemen ended third-place game of the Capital the game on a 15-2 run by forcing City invite by scoring just Capital into four turnovers while 38 points. keeping them to 0-for-6 shooting. The Horsemen kept the Jaguars Basically, solid defense led to the to 24 points in that game, and that momentum swing. alone tells the tale of why The turnovers led to quick
points for the Horsemen, as turnovers are usually prone to do, but scoring quickly usually isn’t their style. Unlike teams like the Santa Fe High Demonettes and the Hobbs Eagles — a 9-0 Class AAAAA team that paid a visit to the City Different for last week’s Invite — that pride themselves on playing a full-court game, pushing the pace and getting teams out of their comfort zone, St. Michael’s likes to slow the game down into a halfcourt affair and force other teams to do the same. While the style has plenty of good points, it can hurt St. Michael’s when it is facing a deficit. That was true in the Capital City semifinals, as St. Michael’s trailed 24-12 to Gadsden after three quarters. That demanded that the Horsemen pick up the scoring pace, but the problem right now is that St. Michael’s is not used to
that style. It didn’t help that the Panthers are almost a carbon copy of the Horsemen, but the weakness is glaring and clear. When you run an offense that takes time to isolate an open shot or an open drive to the basket, then overcoming a 10-point deficit can put you in panic mode and force you to speed up the offensive attack. That’s not meant to take anything away from St. Michael’s. Gadsden was on a 10-game win streak going into this game and is looking like a team that can shake things up in AAAAA. It just illustrates a weakness to a defensive-minded team, and it could be an issue when it comes to AAA teams that want to push the pace like Hope Christian and West Las Vegas. The flaw aside, good defense will always put you in a position to win games. That’s something you can believe.

SÃO PAULO — Days after the latest death by a World Cup worker, organizers insisted Tuesday they aren’t sacrificing safety in a rush to complete stadiums for next year’s tournament. A laborer fell 115 feet Saturday in the jungle city of Manaus at the Arena Amazonia, one of Brazil’s stadiums that is behind schedule. That was the second death there in less than a year, and the fifth at a World Cup venue in the past two years. Ron DelMont, the managing director of FIFA’s World Cup Brazil office, and Deputy Sports Minister Luis Fernandes said safety isn’t being com-

NMSU: Early turnovers doom the Lobos Continued from Page B-5 There is the rub. The Lobos are still looking for players to fill roles and make plays. Guards Arthur Edwards and Deshawn Delaney had their opportunity to define their roles, but they combined for just two points on a combined 1-for-8 shooting. Perhaps the most telling play came as New Mexico rallied from a 49-34 deficit to get within 61-59 with less than a minute remaining. Edwards gobbled up a steal under the NMSU basket and appeared to have an opening going the other way, but he passed off to freshman Cullen Neal, and his layup was blocked by Daniel Mullings and KC Ross-Miller grabbed the loose ball. Ross-Miller was fouled, and iced the game with a 6-for-6 performance from the line down the stretch. At issue for the Lobos, though, was whether Delaney passed up the look or did the
unselfish thing and passed to Neal. “I don’t know if he was tentative,” said Craig Neal, UNM head coach. “I don’t think he had a handle on it. Usually, it would have been a breakaway layup, but he didn’t have a good handle on it.” That was one of a few things UNM didn’t have a handle on against the Aggies. Greenwood’s absence jolted the Lobos, and they came out of the gate erratic. They turned the ball over six times in the opening nine minutes and had a stretch where they gave the ball back to NMSU (9-5) three straight times. That coupled with a hotshooting Aggies team led to a 23-5 deficit with 13:51 left in the first half on Kavin Aronis’ 3, one of four NMSU hit in that stretch. “We weren’t playing at a good pace, and we looked … skittish,” Neal said. “That might not be the right word, but we looked skittish.”
The Aggies were 7-for-12 from the perimeter in the first half and took a 39-26 lead into the locker room. “We just took what the defense gave us,” said Mullings, the junior guard who had 14 points. “In the first half, we were hot. We got a couple of our shooters open, and KC hit a couple. We saw how they were playing and sagging off of us and taht gave us an opportunity to get hot.” NMSU didn’t hit a 3 the rest of the night, but the Aggies had an answer for every UNM spurt in the second half. The Lobos got within 43-34 on Cameron Bairstow’s free throw with 16:11 left, but NMSU scored six straight points. When Bairstow, who had 25 points to lead all scorers, reeled off seven straight points to cut the margin to 51-43, Mullin scored five straight points to help the Aggies keep pace and his floater in the lane at 9:10 of the second half made it 56-46. That’s when the Aggies hit
a dry spell, failing to score for the next 5:41 and the Lobos chipped away to within 56-52 on a pair of free throws by Kendall Williams at 6:40. Nobody scored for the next 3 minutes, until 7-foot-5 Aggies center Sim Bhullar made his presence felt. His putback dunk that led to the three-point play broke the ice and made it 59-52 with 3:29 to go. His block of an Alex Kirk layup at 2:01 preserved a 59-54 margin, and he followed that with a crucial offensive rebound with 1:24 left to allow more time off the clock. Granted, he did have three turnovers down the stretch that helped UNM get to within 61-59, but the plays he made were important to overlook that. “We needed him,” Mullings said. “He came through when we needed him. He was down there, with a couple of fouls, but he came in with the right mindset.” Right now, the Lobos mindset might need a change.

UConn: Huskies win 7th straight in series Continued from Page B-5 It wasn’t. UConn won its seventh straight in the series — and the previous six were decided by an average of nearly 30 points. Chelsea Gray had 13 points and Haley Peters finished with 11 for Duke (10-1), which had its 24-game winning streak at Cameron snapped — a run that dated to UConn’s last visit in 2011. “We didn’t do what we needed to do defensively,” coach Joanne P. McCallie said. “We didn’t rebound the way we need to rebound. And we showed little patience on offense at critical times.” The Huskies, the only visitors to beat Duke on its home floor since 2008, now have done it three times since anybody else has found a way to do it once. They also spoiled the Blue Devils’ undefeated start with a rout for the third time in four seasons. Stewart did much of the early damage in her first appearance in front of the Cameron Crazies — or at least what was left of them, with the Duke students on winter break. She was four points shy of the career high she matched last month against Oregon. And every time Duke threatened to make a run, the Huskies found a way to get Mosqueda-Lewis a clean look from behind the 3-point line. She was especially accurate from the corners while showing no signs of rust after missing eight games with

a nerve contusion on her right elbow. “I don’t think we would have won the game the way we won it without her,” Auriemma said. The Blue Devils, who spent the second half trying to claw their way back into the game, pulled to 65-52 on Elizabeth Williams’ layup with just under 8 minutes left. After a timeout, UConn worked the ball around the perimeter to Mosqueda-Lewis,
who swished her fifth 3 to restore the Huskies’ 18-point lead and help them pull away for their 17th straight win. “That’s something that coach has been telling me since last year — that I need to shoot every shot like it’s the last shot, and shoot every shot like it’s an important shot,” Mosqueda-Lewis said. Tricia Liston and Alexis Jones each finished with 10 points for Duke, which earned just five free throws and was 4 of 18 from 3-point range. “Horrible shot selection,” McCallie said. “Chucking up shots.” The Blue Devils were denied their first win over a No. 1 team since 2007 — and were in serious danger of being run right off its home floor in the first half. Stewart scored 15 points in the half, and 12 of those came during the 13-minute span in which the Huskies outscored Duke 35-11 and turned a one-point deficit into a 38-15 lead. “You can’t necessarily win a game in five minutes, but you can lose a game in five minutes if you don’t do certain things, and then your body language and the way you react in those five minutes,” Auriemma said. “If we score enough points during those six minutes and you don’t, it’s going to be hard to catch up.” For the Blue Devils, this one couldn’t have started much worse. They missed 12 consecutive shots during that drought before things finally started to click late in the half behind Gray.
Danella Hall did something that most post players don’t usually do. The senior made two 3-pointers for the Santa Fe Indian School SFIS 35 Lady Braves in a 35-20 Taos 20 nondistrict girls basketball win over Taos in Otero Gymnasium to go along with her team-high 10 points. “She’s been practicing her 3-pointers in P.E.,” SFIS head coach Jo Jo Valdez said with a laugh. “Not many post players make two 3-pointers.” The Lady Braves (5-3) also kept the Lady Tigers (0-4) to one field goal in the first half and went into the halftime break with a 13-6 lead. “I think our defense is finally com-

We weren’t real focused.”

Figure skating to air live on television By Rachel Cohen The Associated Press
NEW YORK — The first full day of February’s Sochi Olympics, American television viewers can watch a marquee event live from Russia — in the morning. In a shift from NBC’s coverage of past games outside North America, nearly every figure skating performance will air on cable during the day, with the key moments shown on tape delay on the main network that night as in previous Olympics. So if fans want to, they’ll see the women’s gold-medalwinning performance on NBCSN when it happens, instead of waiting until that evening. But they can also watch it again hours later, accompanied by the polished features that are the staple of NBC’s prime-time broadcasts. For years, the network’s argument for holding back the most high-profile events was that nighttime is when the most people are free to watch TV — and when advertisers and local affiliates benefit most. In one sense, nothing has changed. “First and foremost, our mission is to protect prime time — that’s still the No. 1 priority,” said Jim Bell, the executive producer for NBC Olympics. But the other priority is to get more people to pay attention, and for those who already care to stick around longer. Meanwhile, technology kept evolving, and at the 2012 Summer Games in London, NBC started streaming every sport live online.

Every performance will air on cable channel NBCSN during the day, with the key moments shown on tape delay on NBC that night as in previous Olympics. ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE PHOTO
The network discovered it didn’t hurt prime-time ratings — and may have even helped. “We think based on London those two goals align perfectly,” Bell said Tuesday. “We took a risk in streaming everything live from London. The biggest takeaway was we amplified and enhanced the audience’s Olympic experience.” Even with the success of the streaming in 2012, the network still received some criticism for not airing popular events live on TV. Especially on weekends, sports fans are used to watching important
games in the early afternoon. And some people are unwilling or unable to log into the online broadcasts, which will again be available for every sport from Sochi. With the last Winter Olympics in Vancouver, NBC could broadcast figure skating live in prime time. But there is a nine-hour difference between Sochi and the U.S. Eastern time zone. The NBCSN figure skating coverage starts the morning of Feb. 8 with the new team event and goes through the pairs, ice dance and men’s and women’s short programs
AP: Florida State has the most players on teams Continued from Page B-5 it’s important that I do my part even when I’m not carrying the ball.” Carey and Williams are set to compete on the same field this bowl season when Arizona and Boston College meet in the Advocare V100 Bowl in Shreveport, La., on Dec. 31. It will mark the first time since the 1977 Rose Bowl that two players selected first-team AP All-America at running back then faced off in a bowl. That game featured Michigan’s Rob Lytle and Southern California’s Ricky Bell. Mosley, a senior, was the leading tackler for a defense that ranked fifth in the country in yards allowed per game. Sutton, a senior, was named Pac-12 defensive player of the year for the season straight season. Winston, a landslide Heisman winner last week, is joined on the first team by three Florida State teammates — center Bryan Stork, kicker Roberto Aguayo and cornerback Lamarcus Joyner — to give the top-ranked Seminoles more than any other school. Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan made the second team, along with offensive tackle Cameron Erving. The Seminoles had six players on the three teams, the most of any school. No. 2 Auburn, which plays Florida State on Jan. 6 in the BCS championship game in Pasadena, Calif., placed Heisman finalists Tre’ Mason on the second team at running back and offensive lineman Reese Dismukes and Gregory Robinson on the third team. Texas A&M Heisman finalist Johnny Manziel, last year’s Heisman winner and All-American quarterback, made the second team. Alabama’s AJ McCarron,
another Heisman finalist, is the thirdteam quarterback for the second consecutive season. The first-team receivers are Oregon State’s Brandin Cooks, who leads the nation in yards receiving (139.2 per game), and Texas A&M’s Mike Evans, who is averaging 20.3 yards a catch. Texas Tech’s Jace Amaro is the firstteam tight end. The senior leads all tight ends in catches (98) and yards (1,240). Joining Stork on the offensive line are Texas A&M tackle Jake Matthews and Alabama tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, as well as Baylor guard Cyril Richardson and Stanford guard David Yankey. Richardson and Yankey were second-team AllAmericans last season. Mosley and Sutton are on the firstteam defense with Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who won the Nagurski and Bednarik awards as the nation’s best defensive player and the Outland and Lombardi as the country’s best lineman. Missouri’s Michael Sam, the Southeastern Conference defensive player of the year, and Jackson Jeffcoat, the Big 12 defensive player of the year, are the defensive ends. UCLA’s Anthony Barr and Ohio State’s Ryan Shazier round out the linebackers. Michigan State’s Darqueze Dennard, one of the leaders of the nation’s topranked defense, is the other cornerback with Joyner. The safeties are Mississippi’s Cody Prewitt and Washington State’s Deone Bucannon. Tom Hornsey of Memphis made the first team as the punter. Florida State helped the Atlantic Coast Conference put six players on the first team, to match the Pac-12 and SEC for the most from any conference.
and free skates. Figure skating was the perfect sport for this experiment because it’s popular, lasts nearly the entire Olympics and doesn’t risk weather delays, Bell said. Hard-core fans will get to see every performance of the free skate, not just the last group as would typically air in prime time for a non-North American games. A separate announcing team will call the live broadcasts, with former Olympians Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir providing commentary. There won’t be much in the
way of profiles, which will be saved for the night. Other networks still must wait until after the prime-time broadcasts to air highlights. The figure skating coverage is an opportunity to attract viewers to the network formerly known as Versus, which became part of NBC Sports with the Comcast merger in January 2011. It has drawn strong ratings for popular events such as soccer at the London Olympics and the NHL playoffs, but its audience drops off sharply at other times. The channel is in approximately 80 million homes — about 70 percent of the country’s households with televisions. NBCSN will show 230 total hours of coverage across multiple sports from Sochi, which NBC said is a record for a cable channel. Its broadcasts will include 16 men’s hockey games through the bronzemedal round. There will be three qualifying games featuring the U.S. team, highlighted by its matchup with host Russia on Feb. 15. Seven women’s hockey games will include the meeting of the powerhouse American and Canadian squads Feb. 12. NBCSN will also broadcast live gold-medal coverage of events in bobsled, Nordic combined, cross-country skiing, speed skating and ski jumping. “Lots of people found NBCSN for the first time,” Bell said of the 2012 Games. “Hopefully we’re giving them a reason to stick around.”

CLEVELAND — Damian Lillard made a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 0.4 seconds remaining, lifting the Portland Trail Blazers 119 Blazers to a 119-116 win over Cavaliers 116 the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night. Lillard had a career-high eight 3-pointers while scoring 36 points. The 2013 NBA Rookie of the Year also had a fadeaway jumper as time expired to give Portland a 111-109 overtime victory over Detroit on Sunday. Portland (22-4) has the best record in the NBA and is 11-0 against the Eastern Conference. The Blazers have won five straight and are 12-2 on the road. Kyrie Irving’s bid for a tying 3-pointer bounced off the back of the rim at the buzzer. Irving and Dion Waiters scored 25 points apiece for Cleveland. LaMarcus Aldridge had 26 points and 15 rebounds for Portland. LAKERS 96, GRIZZLIES 92 In Memphis, Tenn., Kobe Bryant scored 21 points in his sixth game of the season, and the Lakers closed out a four-game road trip with a victory. Pau Gasol added 21 points and nine rebounds for the Lakers, who were coming off a 114-100 loss at Atlanta on Monday night. Nick Young had 18 points, and Jodie Meeks finished with 13. Zach Randolph had 18 points and a season-high 16 rebounds for Memphis. The Grizzlies played without Mike Conley, who sat out after bruising his left thigh in Sunday’s loss to Minnesota. The Grizzlies led 69-67 in the fourth quarter before the Lakers went on a 17-4 run. Bryant played 32 minutes, matching his most action since returning from his torn left Achilles’ tendon. He was 9 for 18 from the field, both season highs, despite running the offense most of the night.

BOBCATS 95, KINGS 87 In Charlotte, N.C., Kemba Walker scored 24 points, helping Charlotte snap a three-game losing streak. Gerald Henderson added 20 points and reserve Ramon Sessions scored 16 for the Bobcats, who went 8 for 17 from 3-point range. Walker also had five assists in his 10th game with at least 20 points. DeMarcus Cousins had 30 points and 17 rebounds for Sacramento, which shot 37.5 percent from the field. The Kings have dropped three of four. Kings forward Rudy Gay scored four points on 1-of-6 shooting in his worst game since he was acquired in a seven-player trade with Toronto on Dec. 9. He departed with 5:23 left in the third quarter due to right knee stiffness.

Last year, a worker died at the construction site of the stadium in Brasilia. The other death in Manaus happened in March. The most delayed stadium is expected to be the one in São Paulo, where construction is to finish April 15, followed by test matches.
Among other venues, the westcentral city of Cuiaba also stands out because so much supporting infrastructure is still being worked on. For now, travelers there land at an airport bustling with construction, take a road half ripped up for promised tramlines and arrive at a stadium where the roof and facades aren’t finished. The muddy field was only recently seeded. “Cuiaba is a construction site,” Fernandes said. “But I think from the government perspective that’s a very good situation because it won’t be a construction site for the World Cup.”

Holiday roast cuts fat, packs flavor
TRY YOUR HAND AT MAKING HOMEMADE TAMALES THIS HOLIDAY SEASON WITH HELP FROM THE SANTA FE SCHOOL OF COOKING
By Sara Moulton The Associated Press
Tamale masa at the Santa Fe School of Cooking. Masa for pork tamales is what most New Mexicans are used to eating, and it’s made with salt, pork stock and lard. ‘Mixing the masa is the most difficult thing for people. The masa is the key to tamales. You want the right texture — not too dry; not too moist. That’s why it has to be a hands-on class, so people can feel the consistency that they’re looking for,’ chef Cano says.
My choice for an elegant holiday dinner? It’s hard to beat a roast, and more often than not, my pick is a lean and moist pork tenderloin. But let’s face it, as much as we want to be healthy, there is such a thing as roast that is too lean. A lack of fat often means a lack of flavor. So how to make up this deficit? With plenty of high-flavor ingredients, like prosciutto, fresh herbs, mushrooms and wine. Prosciutto packs a ton of flavor, and the slight amount of fat it adds is well worth it. As for the herbs, I took a tip from the Italians, who often top off a grilled steak with fresh herbs and a drizzle of olive oil. Given the roast’s Italian inflections, I chose a mushroom Marsala sauce to go with it. Any mushroom will work, from the most affordable white button to the quite pricey shiitake. If you don’t have Marsala at home, you can swap in Madeira, dry sherry, white vermouth or even white or red wine. All pair up nicely with mushrooms. And, as ever, if you don’t want to use alcohol, leave it out.

hristmas in New Mexico means a lot of things: farolitos, bizcochitos, ski bums and warming pans full of tamales left temptingly unattended at holiday parties. If you have enough friends, it is possible to spend half of December floating from party to party, hoovering up tamales until you look like one and have to roll yourself home in a corn husk because your clothes no longer fit. At its most basic, a tamale is made of masa, or cornmeal batter, filled with meat and/or vegetables, wrapped in corn husk or banana leaves and steamed. More substantial than a taco but less involved than a pastry, a tamale is its own type of food, a member of the wrapped-and-steamed-dumpling family. If you shop for tamales, you’ll typically find three varieties: red chile pork, green chile cheese and green chile chicken. If you’re really ambitious, or want something more exotic, you can try making your own. And because making tamales requires a certain tactile knowledge, and because not all of us have abuelitas to instruct us, the Santa Fe School of Cooking will happily teach you the way. The school offers two classes: Tamale 1, which focuses on traditional tamales, and Tamale 2, where students create nouvelle cuisine tamales. Students in the first class learn three varieties: one filled with red chile and pork, one filled with calabacitas and roasted corn (both wrapped in the familiar corn husk), and a third with a chicken filling wrapped in banana leaves. This last variety is more typical of Central America. “The idea is to highlight different styles of masa,” said Nicole Ammerman, director of the school, “because the masa is what people are most interested in.” “Mixing the masa is the most difficult thing for people. The masa is the key to tamales,” said Noe Cano, chef de cuisine at the school and one of the tamale instructors. “You want the right texture — not too dry; not too moist. That’s why it has to be a hands-on class, so people can feel the consistency that they’re looking for.” In the classes, students rotate between different work stations to make various types of tamales. Masa for pork tamales is what most New Mexicans are used to snarfing up by the pound, and it’s made with salt, pork stock and lard. Masa for vegetarian tamales is a bit different. It’s made with blue cornmeal, vegetable stock and vegetable shortening. The masa for Central American-style chicken
tamales is more like polenta, made with masa, lard, vegetable stock and achiote paste. The second class showcases the versatility of the tamale form. Students learn to craft pear, piñon and goat cheese tamales, duck confit tamales and mushroom-herb tamales. “The masas are similar,” Cano said. “I try to use more butter and shortening, though you make it the same way.” Cano grew up in Veracruz, Mexico, and he explains that “tamales are really traditional, for holy days. It’s one of the older foods in the world. Traditionally, I grew up with the banana leaf ones. Here, the red chile shredded pork in corn is the iconic tamale.” And though many abuelitas would disagree, there is apparently no right way to wrap a tamale. “You can either tie the end, fold it, tie in the middle — every state in Mexico has a different way to wrap the tamale,” Noe said. “I always like to show three or four different ways to wrap it, but in the end, people decide which way they like better.” No matter how they’re wrapped, they all have to be made the same size to cook at the same time, which takes anywhere from 25 to 30 minutes of steaming. Cano’s abuelita taught him a trick to make sure there’s enough water in your pot: “Put three or four pennies in the pot. If they make noise, you know you have water. If not, you need to add more water.”
The cooking school’s tamale classes can accommodate 16 participants. The three-hour classes cost $98 per person. The first two hours are spent learning the method and the last hour reaping the firm-yet-soft, deeply satisfying rewards. And while there may be a rush on tamale lessons this time of year, Ammerman said that the school “runs them year-round, even though it’s a very holiday-themed dish. It’s by far one of our most popular classes.” Tamales are ideal for feeding crowds at holiday events. “They’re labor-intensive,” Ammerman said, “so it’s a good thing to make a lot of, and they freeze very well.” You can also circulate with one tamale on a plate and appear to be having just a tiny snack when in fact that one tamale actually comes after nine or 10 identical-looking tamales, eaten one after the other. Just be sure to hide the husks.

DOUBLE PORK ROAST WITH MUSHROOM MARSALA SAUCE Total time: 1 hour, makes six servings 2 pork tenderloin roasts (¾ to 1 pound each), trimmed of all fat 2 tablespoons packed fresh rosemary leaves, chopped 2 tablespoons packed fresh thyme leaves, chopped 4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided Kosher salt and black pepper ½ cup finely chopped shallots ½ pound mushrooms (cremini, white button, shiitake, oyster or a mix), trimmed and sliced ½ cup dry Marsala wine 1¼ cups low-sodium chicken broth 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour Preparation: Heat oven 350 degrees. Cut down through each tenderloin lengthwise so that you can open it up like a book, but do not cut all the way through. Sprinkle water on the cutting board under the tenderloin and sprinkle a little water on top of the tenderloin (this will help prevent the meat from tearing when you pound it). Cover the tenderloin with plastic wrap, and pound the meat using a meat mallet or rolling pin until it is about ½-inch thick. Sprinkle half the rosemary and thyme leaves all over the inside of each butterflied and pounded pork tenderloin and spread the prosciutto evenly in one layer over the herbs. Beginning with the long end, roll up the tenderloin tightly, tucking in the ends (as you would a burrito). Use kitchen twine to tie the roll in a bundle, tying it every 2 inches. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Season the pork lightly on all sides with salt and pepper, then add it to the skillet. Sear until golden brown on all sides. Transfer the pork to a shallow baking pan, then roast on the oven’s middle shelf until the center reaches 145 degrees, about 20 to 25 minutes; cover loosely with foil. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Return the skillet to medium heat. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil and the shallots and cook, stirring, until the shallots are golden. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms give off all their liquid and are lightly browned. Add the Marsala and simmer until almost all of it is reduced. Add 1 cup of the chicken broth and bring back to a boil. In a small bowl whisk the remaining ¼ cup of chicken broth with the flour. Add the flour mixture to the skillet in a stream while whisking and simmer for 2 minutes. Add any juices that have accumulated from the resting pork to the sauce. Slice the pork crosswise into 1-inch-thick slices. Transfer several slices to each of 6 serving plates.

Demand for von Trapps’ lodge soars after musical remake
TOWE, Vt. — Even if it’s good for business, NBC’s revival of The Sound of Music wasn’t one of the von Trapps’ favorite things. Three-quarters of a century after they arrived from Austria, and in the weeks since the televised version of the musical classic became a national topic of conversation, the singing family and the vacation lodge it runs in the hills of Vermont are in high demand. And yes, the family was watching as Carrie Underwood, in a widely watched and panned performance, took over the role of Maria von Trapp, made famous on Broadway by Mary Martin and on film by Julie Andrews. Kristina von Trapp, granddaughter of the real Maria von Trapp, who died in 1987, visited guests as it was shown at the inn in Stowe. And in a blog post, Francoise von Trapp, daughter of Maria von Trapp’s stepson Rupert, questioned the casting. “For everyone who thought the whole thing was wonderful and that NBC did a spectacular job, I say maybe your expectations weren’t high to begin with,” she wrote. “If they hoped to have created a new holiday classic, I think they missed their mark.” But they aren’t denying the musical is helping business, even if the majority of callers are merely curious and not making reservations. “It definitely stirred up a lot of conversation wanting to know was the family watching, things like that,” said Jennifer Vincent, the lodge’s marketing director. It wasn’t entirely unexpected. Whenever the movie starring Andrews and Christopher Plummer airs on television — typically around Christmas — the lodge gets a lot of traffic on its website and social media, Vincent said. More than 18 million people tuned in to the revival, according to the Nielsen company. NBC plans an encore broadcast Saturday. The musical and movie are a fictionalized account of the life of Maria von Trapp and tell the story of a 1930s Austrian governess who teaches her charges to sing and falls in love with her employer, naval Capt. Georg von Trapp, and the family’s flight during World War II. They moved to Vermont in 1942 after visiting during a singing tour and vacationing in Stowe. “They enjoyed the kind of quality of people that were here in Vermont,” said Sam Messer, who gives tours of the lodge. “They loved kind of the work ethic and stick-to-itiveness.” They built a rustic farmhouse and started taking in boarders. As a ski industry developed in the area, they expanded. Fire destroyed it in 1980, but the family rebuilt. One of the captain’s daughters, also named Maria von Trapp, would play accordion and teach Austrian dance with sister Rosemarie at the lodge. Rosemarie also taught her sons how to play the recorder, said Phoebe Everson, of Plattsburgh, N.Y., who has been a visitor for decades. Four of the 10 von Trapp siblings are still alive, although none live at the lodge anymore. At least three are still in Vermont. The 96-room chalet style inn is the height of charm during the holidays. With its wide

In the restaurants, wiener schnitzel and apple strudel are on the menu, as well as the family’s beer and some dishes coming from the Scotch cattle and egg-laying hens they raise. Photographs line the halls showing the von Trapp girls in Austrian-style dresses, or the family pouring concrete for the foundation and doing the haying and maple sugaring — which they still do. Aside from a large network of cross-
country ski trails, the inn offers fitness and yoga classes, snowshoeing, mountain biking, summer concerts and wine tastings, as well as occasional harp lessons — and frequent music. On Christmas Eve, guests get a special treat: The von Trapp family sings Christmas carols with the guests. But no songs from The Sound of Music.

In brief LASTING IMAGES THE ALHAMBRA In October, Max Underwood of Santa Fe visited the Alhambra, a 14th-century Moorish palace in Granada, Spain. ‘Alhambra’ in Arabic means ‘red,’ which refers to the sun-dried bricks used on the palace’s outer walls.
Fliers’ top pet peeve: Noisy kids If you are a parent who lets your children scream and go nuts on a plane, congratulations — you top the list of most annoying etiquette violators in the air. Parents who travel with loud children are considered more annoying than passengers who kick the seat in front of them and travelers with foul odors. Even fliers who take off their shoes and socks in the air-tight cabin are less offensive, according to a survey of 1,001 Americans by the travel website Expedia. Annoying children and their parents were ranked by 41 percent of those surveyed as the most annoying airplane etiquette violators. So it was no surprise that 49 percent of Americans surveyed said they would pay extra to be seated in a designated “quiet zone,” free of screaming children, the survey found. But the survey pointed out some hypocrisy: Travelers who fully recline their seats were ranked as the seventh worst violation even though 80 percent of travelers admitted they fully recline their seat at some point in the flight. “Most of us, when we look at the list of offending behaviors, can admit to having committed one or more of these violations,” said John Morrey, general manager of Expedia.

When you go online to search for an airfare, you often see the lowest price appear at the top of your computer screen. But what if your airline search site instead offered you a customized flight package deal — adding extras such as wireless Internet access and a seat with extra legroom — based on what you have booked in the past? In the future, airlines will increasingly offer travelers customized airfares based on detailed information that carriers have collected, even data about your income, the neighborhood where you live and your travel patterns, according to industry experts. “We expect to see more airlines adopt this trend in commerce as they continue to offer passengers a more personalized travel experience,” said Vaughn Jennings, a spokesman for Airlines for America, a trade group for the nation’s airlines.

Teenagers assault people for sport Dear Annie: I just finished watching a piece on the news about young people assaulting others and calling it a game. It seems they walk up to unsuspecting people and throw the hardest punch they can to the face in an effort to knock someone out. In one instance, a man was hit so hard, he fell face first to the curb and fractured his skull. He died, and the person who hit him was charged with manslaughter. The kids being interviewed were all laughing about it, as if it were some sort of party. They said it was a macho thing, to prove how tough or strong you are. The sad part is that they are raised as if their actions have no consequences. Parents, teach your children better before it’s too late. — Worried Adult Dear Adult: It’s sad to see a world where children think assault is a sport, where the constant media barrage publicizes and glamorizes violence, and where these immature teens either don’t understand the consequences of their actions or think prison is simply another badge of toughness. We doubt they would find this activity so much “fun” if the victim were someone they cared about. We’ve forgotten how to be civilized to one another, nor do we value it. Parents not only need to teach compassion and responsibility to their children, but they have the added burden of combating the multiple pernicious influences around them. It’s hard to raise kids these days, and we commend those parents who manage to do it well. Dear Annie: I have a friend who often asks: “What’s happening?” But when I attempt to tell her, she rudely interrupts and says, “I don’t want to hear about it!” It doesn’t matter what the subject is. She even interrupts for others, saying, “She doesn’t want to hear about it!” She also cuts me off mid-sentence and mockingly finishes my thoughts
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Forget about having a steady, scheduled day. The unexpected blows its winds in your direction, no matter how hard you try to dodge it. Tonight: Someone might think that you are being aloof. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Your strength comes from detaching when the unexpected occurs around a loved one. Initiate discussions on an individual level. Tonight: Relax over dinner, then talk. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Others continue to run with the ball, which allows you to have more time for last-minute holiday details. onight: Go along with a suggestion. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH Recognize that you must deal with the more boring yet important aspects of your life. Tonight: Get some R and R — you’re going to need it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH You might wonder why someone always seems to trigger you. Decide to be impervious to this person’s actions. Maintain a sense of humor. Tonight: Find the mistletoe, then find the apple of your eye.

for me. Attempting to carry on a conversation with her is hurtful and exasperating, and I find her to be extremely rude. However, if the conversation centers on her, it can go on forever. Also, if she is trying to impress people, no matter how boring the conversation, she hangs on their every word. I have to deal with this “conversation bully” often. How am I supposed to handle her? — Sharp Stick in the Ear Dear Sharp: You are already aware that your friend is self-centered and only interested in conversation that is somehow beneficial to her. When she asks, “What’s happening?” she doesn’t really want to know. It’s simply her way of saying hello. Here are your options: You can tell your friend how rude and upsetting this is and ask her to be more considerate; you can restrict your conversation to topics that stroke her ego; you can find other friends. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Furious and Concerned,” whose physician cousin often treats and gives medication to family members. The Medical Board of California does not prohibit physicians from treating family members, but does require that any prescribing of medications (and giving samples is indeed prescribing) be accompanied by an appropriate history and physical examination. It also requires that adequate medical records be kept of the treatment, the same as for any other patient. In California, the actions described would put that physician at risk of losing his license for unprofessional conduct. I don’t know what state this cousin lives in, but “Furious” should advise her relatives to stop asking him for free medical care. We all receive such requests, and they are often difficult to refuse. She also could send the physician a copy of this reply, as he may be unaware that his actions are putting his license at risk. — Concerned MD in California
