CYFD chief: Some tragedies unavoidable Secretary defends how agency handled Omaree Varela case, seeks funds for more staff By Patrick Malone The New Mexican

Faced with hard questions about the death of a 9-year-old Albuquerque boy whose past abuse was known to her department, the Cabinet secretary in charge of protecting

children implored lawmakers to fill vacant positions at her agency in order to keep vulnerable kids safer. Still, Yolanda Berumen-Deines, secretary of the Children, Youth and Families Department under Gov. Susana Martinez, couldn’t assure a legislative panel Tuesday that tragedies such as the death last month of Omaree Varela will never happen again. “As long as we’re dealing with human behavior, and human behavior being as unpredictable as it is, I believe that there’s always the possibility … that we could experi-

ence this once more,” Berumen-Deines said. “But it won’t be because we haven’t made the effort to improve our services, to reduce the likelihood in every way we possibly can.” Omaree had been placed in foster care, but on the authority of the Children, Youth and Families Department, he was returned to his mother in 2011. She now is charged with child abuse resulting in death for allegedly kicking him to death.

Obama vows 2014 will be year of action President says he will sidestep Congress to advance proposals By David Nakamura and David A. Fahrenthold

The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama sought Tuesday to restore public confidence in his presidency after a dispiriting year, pledging to use his White House authority with new force to advance an agenda that Congress has largely failed to support. In his fifth prime-time State of the Union address, Obama made clear that instead of trying to fix the mess in Washington, he was now promising to find ways around it. “America does not stand still,” Obama said. “And neither will I. Wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that’s what I’m going to do.” In a speech that lasted just over an hour, Obama struck moments of bipartisan harmony, most starkly in an emotional moment near the end when he called on the nation to draw inspiration from Cory Remsburg, an Army ranger blinded in one eye by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan during his 10th deployment. Remsburg, who was dressed in his uniform and seated next to first lady Michelle Obama, drew a lengthy standing ovation from lawmakers in the House chamber, and he flashed them a determined thumbs up.

he political fight over spending hundreds of millions of dollars on early childhood education turned personal Tuesday. About 200 adults and perhaps 70 children rallied for the education initiative outside the state Capitol. One of their leaders, Allen Sanchez, told the crowd that one powerful legislator was putting himself ahead of the people’s will. Sanchez’s criticisms were aimed at Sen. John Arthur Smith, D-Deming, who chairs the Senate Finance Committee. Smith last year refused to allow a vote in his committee on the early childhood initiative, killing the proposal. Sanchez said he feared that Smith again could single-handedly stop the bill. It would advance to a public vote in the November election if it cleared the Senate and the House of Representatives.

“Sen. Smith doesn’t believe in your vote,” said Sanchez, CEO of St. Joseph Community Health and the political spokesman for New Mexico’s three Catholic bishops. “Sen. Smith told me, ‘We can’t give the children the checkbook.’ ” Another proponent of the initiative, Javier Benavidez of the Center for Civic Policy, said Smith often does not understand tax and finance bills, yet he holds himself out as the Senate’s expert on those matters. “After having to clean up one blunder after another by Chairman John Arthur Smith, it’s preposterous that a few select senators continue to defer to his obstruction of a game-

changer like early childhood education,” Benavidez said. In an interview a few minutes later, Smith fired back at his critics, especially Sanchez. “We’re wanting quality programs. Allen Sanchez doesn’t care about quality at all. He just wants money,” Smith said. The amendment Sanchez favors would tap into the state’s $12 billion land-grant endowment to help expand early childhood programs. St. Joseph Community Health is a provider of those services, and Smith said that colors Sanchez’s judgment. “Allen Sanchez is extremely tenacious, and he is highly incentivized to be that way,” Smith said. Smith would not commit to hearing the initiative for early childhood education if it reaches his committee. “We’ll wait and see what happens,” he said. Proponents of the measure believe they can win in the House of Representatives, as

“Paying the living wage makes for a better workforce, happier people. They’re more confident, more competent, and they give better service,” said Castro, owner of Cafe Castro on Cerrillos Road. “I think it’s the moral and only right thing to do.” Castro was among about two dozen people who testified before county commissioners Tuesday in support of a proposed ordinance that would mandate a minimum wage in unincorporated areas that is higher than the current statewide minimum of $7.50 an hour. Commissioners took no vote but scheduled the proposed ordinance, which is similar to the city of Santa Fe’s, for a second reading and possible action Feb. 11.

In brief

Number implicated in nuke probe has doubled WASHINGTON — The cheating scandal inside the Air Force’s nuclear missile corps is expanding, with the number of service members implicated by investigators now roughly double the 34 reported just a week ago, officials said Tuesday. It wasn’t immediately clear whether the additional 30-plus airmen suspected of being involved in cheating on proficiency tests are alleged to have participated in the cheating directly or were involved indirectly. Regardless, a doubling of the number implicated means that approximately 14 percent of the entire Air Force cadre of nuclear missile launch control officers, which numbers about 500, has been removed at least temporarily from active missile duty. It was not clear Tuesday how that affects the mission, beyond requiring the remaining crew members to bear a bigger share of the work. The Air Force announced on Jan. 15 that while it was investigating possible criminal drug use by some airmen, it discovered that one missile The snow-covered statue of late Georgia governor and U.S. Sen.

Mexico plans to legalize anti-cartel vigilantes MEXICO CITY — After months of tacit cooperation with rural vigilantes trying to drive out a cult-like drug cartel, the Mexican government is seeking to permanently solve one of its toughest security problems with a plan to legalize the growing movement and bring it under the army’s control. But the risks are high.

To succeed, the government must enforce military discipline and instill respect for human rights and due process among more than 20,000 heavily armed civilians, then eventually disband them and send them back home in the western state of Michoacan. Vigilante leaders met Tuesday with government officials to hash out details of the agreement that would put avocado and lime pickers with AR-15 semi-automatic rifles under army command. The Mexican military has a centuryold tradition of mobilizing “rural defense corps”

manned by peasants to fight bandits and uprisings in the countryside.

Ukraine overturns nations’ harsh anti-protest laws KIEV, Ukraine — In back-to-back moves aimed at defusing Ukraine’s political crisis, the prime minister resigned Tuesday and parliament repealed anti-protest laws that had set off violent clashes between protesters and police.

s +14.35 4,097.96 s +10.94 1,792.50

The two developments were significant concessions to the anti-government protesters who have fought sporadically with police for the last 10 days after two months of peaceful around-theclock demonstrations. The protests erupted after President Viktor Yanukovych turned toward Russia for a bailout loan instead of signing a deal with the European Union and have since morphed into a general plea for more human rights, less corruption and more democracy in this nation of 45 million. The departure of Prime Minister Mykola Azarov removes one of the officials most disliked by the opposition forces whose protests have turned parts of Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, into a barricaded maze. However, Azarov’s spokesman told the Interfax news agency that another staunch Yanukovych ally, deputy Prime Minister Serhiy Arbuzov, will assume temporary leadership of the Cabinet, a move that is unlikely to please the opposition.

‘Water monster,’ may have disappeared; experts worry MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s salamander-like axolotl may have disappeared from its only known natural habitat in Mexico City’s few remaining lakes. It’s disturbing news for an admittedly ugly creature, which has a slimy tail, plumage-like gills and mouth that curls into an odd smile. The axolotl is known as the “water monster” and the “Mexican walking fish.” Its only natural habitat is the Xochimilco network of lakes and canals — the “floating gardens” of earth piled on reed mats that the Aztecs built to grow crops but are now suffering from pollution. Biologist Armando Tovar Garza of Mexico’s National Autonomous University said Tuesday that the creature “is in serious risk of disappearing” from the wild. Describing an effort last year by researchers in skiffs to try to net axolotls in the shallow, muddy waters of Xochimilco, Tovar Garza summed up the results as “four months of sampling — zero axolotls.” The Associated Press

States consider reviving old-fashioned executions By Jim Salter

The Associated Press

ST. LOUIS — With lethal-injection drugs in short supply and new questions looming about their effectiveness, lawmakers in some death penalty states are considering bringing back relics of a more gruesome past: firing squads, electrocutions and gas chambers. Most states abandoned those execution methods more than a generation ago in a bid to make capital punishment more palatable to the public and to a judicial system worried about inflicting cruel and unusual punishments that violate the Constitution. But to some elected officials, the drug shortages and recent legal challenges are beginning to make lethal injection seem too vulnerable to complications. “This isn’t an attempt to time-warp back into the 1850s or the wild, wild West or anything like that,” said Missouri state Rep. Rick Brattin, who this month proposed making firing squads an option for executions. “It’s just that I foresee a problem, and I’m trying to come up with a solution that will be the most humane yet most economical for our state.”

Brattin, a Republican, said questions about the injection drugs are sure to end up in court, delaying executions and forcing states to examine alternatives. It’s not fair, he said, for relatives of murder victims to wait years, even decades, to see justice served while lawmakers and judges debate execution methods. Like Brattin, a Wyoming lawmaker this month offered a bill allowing the firing squad. Missouri’s attorney general and a state lawmaker have raised the notion of rebuilding the state’s gas chamber. And a Virginia lawmaker wants to make electrocution an option if lethal-injection drugs are not available. If adopted, those measures could return states to the more harrowing imagery of previous decades, when inmates were hanged, electrocuted or shot to death by marksmen. States began moving to lethal injection in the 1980s in the belief that powerful sedatives and heart-stopping drugs would replace the violent spectacles with a more clinical affair while limiting, if not eliminating, an inmate’s pain. The total number of U.S. executions has declined — from a peak of 98 in 1999 to 39 last year. Some states have

tals across the nation. In October, Gov. Jay Nixon stayed the execution of serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin and ordered the Missouri Department of Corrections to find a new drug. Days later, the state announced it had switched to a form of pentobarbital made by a compounding pharmacy. Like other states, Missouri has refused to divulge where the drug comes from or who makes it. Michael Campbell, assistant professor of criminal justice at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, said some lawmakers simply don’t believe convicted murderers deserve any mercy. “Many of these politicians are trying to tap into a more populist theme that those who do terrible things deserve to have terrible things happen to them,” Campbell said. Richard Dieter, executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center in Washington, D.C., cautioned that there could be a backlash. “These ideas would jeopardize the death penalty because, I think, the public reaction would be revulsion, at least from many quarters,” Dieter said. Some states already provide alternatives to lethal injection. Condemned prisoners may choose the electric chair in eight states: Alabama, Arkansas,

turned away from the death penalty entirely. Many have cases tied up in court. And those that carry on with executions find them increasingly difficult to conduct because of the scarcity of drugs and doubts about how well they work. European drug makers have stopped selling the lethal chemicals to prisons because they do not want their products used to kill. At least two recent executions are also raising concerns about the drugs’ effectiveness. Last week, Ohio inmate Dennis McGuire took 26 minutes to die by injection, gasping repeatedly as he lay on a gurney with his mouth opening and closing. And on Jan. 9, Oklahoma inmate Michael Lee Wilson’s final words were, “I feel my whole body burning.” Missouri threw out its three-drug lethal injection procedure after it could no longer obtain the drugs. State officials altered the method in 2012 to use propofol, which was found in the system of pop star Michael Jackson after he died of an overdose in 2009. The anti-death penalty European Union threatened to impose export limits on propofol if it were used in an execution, jeopardizing the supply of a common anesthetic needed by hospi- Fax: 984-1785 Legal ads: 986-3000

Florida, Kentucky, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. An inmate named Robert Gleason Jr. was the most recent to die by electrocution, in Virginia in January 2013. Missouri and Wyoming allow for gas-chamber executions, and Arizona does if the crime occurred before Nov. 23, 1992, and the inmate chooses that option instead of lethal injection. Missouri no longer has a gas chamber, but Attorney General Chris Koster, a Democrat, and Missouri state Sen. Kurt Schaefer, a Republican, last year suggested possibility rebuilding one. So far, there is no bill to do so. Delaware, New Hampshire and Washington state still allow inmates to choose hanging. The last hanging in the U.S. was in Delaware in 1996. In recent years, there have been three civilian firing squad executions in the U.S., all in Utah. Gary Gilmore uttered his famous final words, “Let’s do it,” on Jan. 17, 1977, before his execution. Utah is phasing out its use, but the firing squad remains an option there for inmates sentenced prior to May 3, 2004. Oklahoma maintains the firing squad as an option, but only if lethal injection and electrocution are deemed unconstitutional.

Americans react to Obama’s speech Seeking a bigger slice

Wounded war hero is high point of address By Laurie Kellman The Associated Press




WASHINGTON — Wounded veteran Cory Remsburg had met President Barack Obama three times before Tuesday night— once in France and twice since a roadside bomb in Kandahar, Afghanistan, on his 10th deployment. Number four was at Obama’s State of the Union address, when the Army Ranger inspired the emotional high point of the evening. Toward the end of Obama’s policy-heavy address, the president gestured toward the uniformed man from Phoenix seated next to first lady Michelle Obama and described the difference between the Remsburg he’d met the first time — “sharp as a tack” — and the wounded warrior his fellow soldiers found facedown in a









canal, underwater, with shrapnel in his brain. As Obama spoke, the heads of lawmakers, Supreme Court justices and Cabinet members swiveled to their right and upward toward Remsburg, who had been clapping all evening by patting his right hand on his chest. His left hand lay curled in a brace. Remsburg, seated beside his father, Craig, is still blind in one eye and struggles on his left side, Obama said “Like the Army he loves, like the America he serves, Sgt. 1st Class Cory Remsburg never gives up.”

President Barack Obama used his State of the Union address Tuesday night to make his pitch that the nation must come together to address persistent problems, from the wealth gap between rich and poor to economic mobility to lagging schools. The Associated Press spoke with a sampling of viewers from around the country to gauge whether the president succeeded in convincing them of the need for his proposals.

Talking about me Scott Valenti was astonished as he listened to the president. “He was talking about me tonight,” said the 41-year-old resident of Woodland Park, Colo. “But I can tell you, I’m no more reassured than when he started.” After years of work, Valenti put himself through Colorado Christian University to finally get his bachelor’s degree in organizational management. But after a post-graduation position fell through, he’s been jobless for a month with two teenage children to provide for and a mortgage to pay. Still, Obama’s pledges to help the unemployed and his urging of Congress to jumpstart job growth left Valenti cold.

Naquasia LeGrand, 22, who works part-time as a fast-food employee at Kentucky Fried Chicken, said she was especially happy to hear Obama point to a pizza store owner who had raised his employees’ wages, and asked other Americans to follow that example. “Businesses don’t have to wait on Congress to help their employees have a living wage,” said LeGrand, from Brooklyn, who has campaigned to raise the minimum wage to $15 and to allow fast-food workers to unionize. LeGrand said she was glad to see Obama suggest going around lawmakers and using his executive power.

Powered-up president Dean Weygandt, 52, of Toledo, Ohio, an electronics technician who’s active in his local union, said that when it came to Obama using executive orders for his agenda, it’s about time. “I think he’s used executive privilege less than he should have,” Weygandt said. “He’s tried to work with those people,” he said, referring to Republicans in Congress. “There are times before he could have used it and didn’t.”

2014 Legislature Senate panel OKs texting ban for drivers Opponents of bill cite invasion-of-privacy question

By Barry Massey

The Associated Press

A proposal to prohibit texting while driving cleared an initial hurdle in the Legislature on Tuesday, but it’s far from certain whether New Mexico will join 41 other states in imposing such a ban. The Senate Public Affairs Committee unanimously endorsed the proposal. But similar measures have failed in the Legislature since 2009, when then-Democratic Gov. Bill Richardson recommended banning drivers from using cellphones for texting or talking while they’re on the road. The latest legislation would prohibit

drivers — even while at a stop light — from sending or reading a text message or an email. It also bans making an Internet search from a cellphone or other hand-held communications device while behind the wheel. There would be a $25 fine for a first violation and $50 for subsequent violations. Sen. Peter Wirth, a Santa Fe Democrat who’s sponsoring the measure, said the problem of distracted drivers has grown, and it’s time for lawmakers to finally respond. “All of us have experienced the proliferation of texting and driving. I’ve had some very close calls,” Wirth told

the committee. Law enforcement agencies, including the state police, testified in support of the legislation, along with officials in Republican Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration. The National Transportation Safety Board has called for states to ban the use of cellphones by drivers, including texting. The risk of a traffic crash is 23 times greater when texting while driving, according to the federal agency. New Mexico already prohibits texting and cellphone use by teenage drivers with a learner’s permit or provisional license, but there’s no statewide restriction for adult drivers. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, 41 states,

the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands ban texting by all drivers. Opponents in the past have said the proposed legislation isn’t needed because current laws against careless or reckless driving can deal with the problem of drivers who are texting. But Wirth said, “You don’t have to rise [to the] level of careless driving to get this fine.” Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez, D-Belen, objects to the measure and blocked it last year. He said in an interview that he worries the proposed ban could lead to an invasion of privacy if police seize a person’s cellphone to search for evidence that a driver was texting, and he’s concerned the penalties could become more

Rally: Proponents try to ramp up pressure Continued from Page A-1 they did last year. This time, their strategy is to push the amendment first in the Senate, hoping to bring public pressure on Smith. People at the rally made it apparent that Smith, if not a household name in New Mexico politics, was becoming one. Carmella Salinas, a preschool teacher from Española, said Smith was the key as to whether the initiative makes the ballot. “I’m optimistic — if we can get it passed in Senate finance,” she said.

“Don’t sugarcoat it.” Griego said his reference was to New Mexico ranking 50th in

child well-being, according to a survey last year by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

Griego said the initiative to expand early childhood education could move future generations from poverty to prosperity. The constitutional amendment for early childhood education would siphon at least $100 million a year from the endowment. Benavidez said the fund would continue growing, and that the principal would not be touched. Smith and Republicans in the Legislature oppose the amendment, saying they are afraid it could erode the endowment and weaken the state economically over the long term.

Spider bite might be cause of Dem’s illness Lawmakers’ absences could swing key bills to GOP side By Milan Simonich The New Mexican

State Rep. Ernest Chavez, so ill that he has missed the first week of the legislative session, is in an intermediate care center, the House speaker said Tuesday. Chavez, 76, is being treated for swelling in his lower body, perhaps caused by the bite of a recluse spider, Speaker Kenny Martinez said in an interview. But according to Martinez, “He looks great.” Martinez’s disclosure was the first specific explanation of Chavez’s health problems. Chavez, of Albuquerque, is one of two Democrats in the House of Representatives who have been unable to attend the session because of health problems. The other is Rep. Phillip Archuleta of Las Cruces, who broke a hip and a bone in his leg last year. Friends say Archuleta has had a difficult rehabilitation.

Archuleta, 64, is starting his second year in the Legislature. Chavez is in his 10th. Martinez says both men are frustrated because they have not been able to attend the session. But they are under his political order to get well and not worry about rushing back for debates or votes, Martinez said. “Nothing we’re doing this 30-day session is worth dying over,” he said. Still, Chavez and Archuleta know their absence has cut the Democrats’ majority in the House of Representatives to 35-33. A margin that tight means Republicans could win in the House on two high-profile bills. One measure calls for the retention of thousands of third-graders based on subpar reading scores. The other would repeal a 10-year-old law that enables people without proof of immigration status to obtain a New Mexico driver’s license. If those bills cleared the House, they would still would have to go through the Senate, where their odds of carrying are lower. Democrats have a wider margin in the Senate, 25-17. Though only a freshman, Archuleta last

year led the way in the labor committee in stopping the driver’s license repeal. His motion to block the bill was quickly supported by the speaker and other veteran House members. Archuleta said those with driver’s licenses must learn the rules of the road, and they are listed in police databases. “I look at it as a public-safety issue. I voted my conscience,” he said at the time. The absence of the two Democrats also could be pivotal if a constitutional amendment on early childhood education goes to a floor vote. The proposal cleared the House last year before dying in the Senate. But without Chavez and Archuleta, it might not have enough support to carry this time. Legislators are mostly divided on party lines over whether to use a portion of the state’s $12 billion land-grant endowment for early childhood education. A majority of Democrats support the measure. Republicans oppose it, saying the endowment could dwindle if more money were allocated for another education program.

Senate Dems target Human Services chief By Parick Malone The New Mexican

State Senate Democrats on Tuesday launched a symbolic statement of no confidence targeting Gov. Susana Martinez’s Cabinet secretary overseeing the Human Services Department. The resolution takes aim at Secretary Sidonie Squier, criticizing her for the department’s decision to stop Medicaid funding to in-state behavioral health care providers while they are being investigated for suspected overbilling. The attorney general so far has cleared one of the 15 providers of fraud, but found instances of overbilling in an audit. That business, The Counseling Center in Alamogordo, closed in August. In June, the Human Services Department stopped funding the behavioral health providers. It contracted with Arizona companies to replace them. “Secretary Squier’s refusal to restore funding pending the outcome of a thorough and

complete investigation has effectively dismantled the state’s already fragile behavioral health care system and threatened the well-being of New Mexicans,” says the no-confidence resolution, introduced by Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez, D-Belen. It goes on to state: “The senate has lost confidence in the secretary of human services’ ability to lead the department and administer the programs critical to the health and wellbeing of New Mexicans.” In response to the resolution, Human Services Department spokesman Matt Kennicott said in an email, “This is unfortunate, and blatant, political grandstanding.” About 20 Senate Democrats have signed on in support of the resolution, but no Republicans have expressed support. Sen. Carlos Cisneros, D-Questa, said he supports the resolution because the behavioral health care providers were denied due process before their

funding was frozen, and treatment of patients was disrupted. “I got complaints from individuals that were receiving these services that were just scared to death that they lost their practitioners,” he said. “People that they have confidence in, that they had been working with to try to deal with issues, all of a sudden were no longer there.” The actions of the Human Services Department were taken in the interest of protecting public funds, Kennicott said. “We take protecting Medicaid funds very seriously, and believe they should be used to support the most vulnerable New Mexicans,” Kennicott said in the email. “Medicaid funds should not be used to buy private airplanes, CEOs should not get rich off of the Medicaid system, and employees should not be told to overbill as a means of siphoning off additional Medicaid fund for their company. And when those things happen, it takes critical funding away from those who need it most. If

Senator Sanchez or anyone else believes otherwise, we certainly disagree.” The attorney general’s investigation into the alleged overpayments is continuing. In a parting shot, the Democrats’ resolution jabs Squier for an email message she wrote last year that said, “there has never been and is not now any significant evidence of hunger in N.M.,” a statement she backed off by conceding that hungry children do exist in New Mexico. The Democrats’ resolution chides Squier for her original statement and says it renders her “unsuitable to administer food assistance programs.” Though fiery, the resolution carries little practical weight. It could not revoke the Senate’s 2011 confirmation of Squier to the Cabinet post. “It’s symbolic,” Cisneros said. “It’s a statement of lack of confidence, essentially saying, ‘There’s something wrong here, and we need to fix it.’ ”

severe in the future. “It’s a traffic violation now. But what I have seen happen to certain traffic violations is they end up becoming misdemeanors and then they eventually end up becoming felonies,” Sanchez said. Wirth’s proposal would allow a driver to pull over to the side of the road to send or receive a text message, and the measure would permit the use of voice-operated or hands-free devices for sending a text message. The measure goes next to the Judiciary Committee for consideration and if approved would head to the 42-member Senate for a possible vote. It also must pass the House before it could reach the governor to be signed into law.

Legislative roundup Days remaining in session: 22 ‘Abuelos’ get their due: More than half the grandparents in New Mexico are raising their children’s children. About 55 percent of grandparents in the state are raising grandchildren, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2012 American Community Survey. Often, the grandparents shoulder parental duties for five years or more. The state Senate declared Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2014, “Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Day.” The memorial sponsored by Sen. Richard Martinez, D-Española, acknowledged the sacrifices and joys that grandparents face when they raise grandchildren. It called on the Legislature to confront the underlying factors that create grandparent-headed households, such as addiction, domestic violence, unemployment, poverty and teen births. Senators praised the role grandparents play in passing on heritage through language and culture, and lamented grandparents whose contact with their grandchildren is limited. “Children who are raised by their grandparents remain in a familial household where they receive the love and support necessary to reach their full potential,” the memorial stated, “in the eyes of a child, a grandparent is truly a hero.” Geek as second language: Have you ever stumbled upon information technology folks talking shop, and it sounds as if they’re speaking in an alien tongue? Senate Bill 148, sponsored by Sen. Jacob Candelaria, D-Albuquerque, would make classes that teach computer languages count as a foreign language for high school academic requirements. Candelaria’s bill would add a section to the state statute on “Minimum Instructional Areas Required” that reads, “Beginning with the 2014-2015 school year, in all grades, school districts may offer a course in a modern, widely used computer programming language to satisfy language other than English requirements.” Widely used computer languages include Java, Javascript, C, Perl and HTML. High school students in the state have to complete at least 24 academic units to graduate. At least one of those units must come from a category that includes communication skills, business education with a major emphasis on writing, and a language other than English. Line of duty: Police officers, firefighters and corrections officers injured in the line of duty no longer would lose part of their retirement under a bill Rep. Paul Pacheco, R-Albuquerque, introduced Tuesday. Called “The Line of Duty Injury Act,” the bill would encourage state agencies to provide pay for administrative time — 32 hours a week — to cover what the injured employees would lose toward retirement. Under current law, injured public safety workers no longer accrue time toward

retirement when they’re off work during recovery. Workers’ compensation pays 66 percent of benefits, but injured employees and their employers both stop paying their portion of the employees’ retirement while they’re recovering and off work. “Essentially, it’s a double whammy,” said Pacheco, a retired police officer. “They’re getting financially injured while they’re recovering and trying to get back to work. It’s really unfair.” The bill would allow agencies to retain control over determining which employees fit the criteria. It would not mandate that any of the agencies pay the contributions, due to the more limited resources of smaller agencies. Native holiday: By a vote of 70-0, the House approved a measure that would seek the designation of the national “Native American Heritage Day” as a federal public holiday. House Memorial 4, sponsored by Rep. Roberto “Bobby” Gonzales, D-Taos, encourages the state’s congressional delegation to advocate for the legal public holiday in honor of Native American people just after Thanksgiving, on the fourth Friday of November. HM 4 states that declaring this day as a legal public holiday would provide more opportunity to educate Americans and correct misunderstandings about indigenous cultures, and to celebrate Native Americans’ contributions to the U.S. Looking ahead: Working Classroom will present its fourth annual Roundhouse Comedy Revue at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 29, at The Lodge at Santa Fe, 750 N. St. Francis Drive, with a second show Feb. 1 at the Paul Carpenter y Salazar Theater, 423 Atlantic SW in Albuquerque. This is an evening of original sketch comedy poking fun at the personalities, politics and policies of the Legislature. u Former Sen. Dede Feldman, an Albuquerque Democrat, is scheduled to autograph her recent book, Inside the New Mexico Senate: Boots, Suits and Citizens, at 5 p.m. Jan. 30, at the Rio Chama restaurant, 414 Old Santa Fe Trail. u Somos Un Pueblo Unido, an immigrant-rights group, will deliver 5,000 signed petitions to the Capitol at 12:45 p.m. Jan. 29, during an Immigrant Day of Action. The petitions urge the governor to drop her support for repealing the law that allows undocumented immigrants to get driver’s licenses. The protesters also will hand out personalized milk cartons and hard hats to lawmakers as a symbol of how immigrants contribute to the economy.

CFYD: Agency director says caseload higher than ‘we like’ Continued from Page A-1

Obama: GOP responds, chastises president calling ideas small potatoes Continued from Page A-1 gress’ approval after a bruising 2013 in which it rarely came. He challenged lawmakers to work with him to achieve breakthroughs on large-scale initiatives to overhaul immigration laws and provide more benefits to American workers, including a higher minimum wage and extension of long-term unemployment insurance. But he also sketched out more than a dozen ways in which he intends to use executive powers to try to boost the economy on his own. Obama covered topics as wide-ranging as equal pay for women, gun violence and Iran’s nuclear program. He ticked off accomplishments: a rebounding housing market, lower unemployment, manufacturing gains and lower annual deficits. Yet he made the case that Congress, and Washington politics more broadly, had become a roadblock to progress. When Washington’s fighting “prevents us from carrying out even the most basic functions of our democracy — when our differences shut down government or threaten the full faith and credit of the United States — then we are not doing right by the American people,” Obama said. He faced a tricky task: winning over a nation that has grown less trustful of his leadership after a year in which the federal government was partially shuttered for 17 days and the administration botched the rollout of Obama’s signature health care law. For the first time on the eve of a State of the Union address, more Americans rate his performance negatively than positively, with 50 percent disapproving. To that end, Obama announced a list of executive actions that he will pursue in the coming months aimed at slowing the widening income gap among American families, which the White House has called a top priority for the year. Among them were plans to raise the minimum wage for federal contract workers to $10.10 an hour, create a new government-backed private retirement savings plan and speed up implementation of a previously announced program to connect schools to broadband wireless. White House aides described the initiatives as having the potential to help millions of Americans gain more takehome pay, job training and education. They pointed to previous examples of Obama using executive action to defer deportations of hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants brought to the country by their parents as children and to strengthen regulations on carbon emissions at power plants. Such moves “were bigger than anything Congress passed in the last two years aside from the budget,” one senior administration official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to preview Obama’s speech.

GOP weighs in But Republicans quickly denounced the new proposals as small potatoes and accused the president of failing to work through the legislative process to achieve more sweeping initiatives. “I suspect the president has the authority to raise the minimum wage for those dealing

with federal contracts,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said before the speech Tuesday, after Obama’s plans were leaked by the White House. “But let’s understand something: This affects not one current contract; it only affects future contracts with the federal government. And so I think the question is: How many people, Mr. President, will this executive action actually help? I suspect the answer is somewhere close to zero.” White House aides acknowledged that the program pertains to future contracts, and they were unable to quantify how many could be helped by the program in the next year, saying more details would be announced in the coming days as Obama embarks on a four-state tour Wednesday and Thursday to rally the public behind his initiatives. In the official Republican Party response to Obama’s address, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., faulted Obama’s approach to the economy. Though the unemployment rate fell last month to 6.7 percent — the lowest level in more than five years — the drop was powered mostly by a growing number of unemployed people who stopped looking for work. “Last month, more Americans stopped looking for a job than found one,” McMorris Rodgers said. “Too many people are falling further and further behind because, right now, the president’s policies are making people’s lives harder.” The exception to the combative posture from the White House was on immigration reform, which House Republican leaders have signaled in recent weeks that they could be ready to entertain. Obama touched just briefly on the topic, reiterating his call for a comprehensive bill that includes a path to citizenship for the nation’s 11 million to 12 million undocumented immigrants. McMorris Rodgers wasn’t the only Republican to respond to Obama’s address. Utah Sen. Mike Lee and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, two tea-party favorites, also delivered high-profile responses, pushing back on the president’s message with a sharp ideological edge. Florida Rep. Ileana RosLehtinen, an ally of House Speaker Boehner, and the first Cuban American elected to Congress, delivered another widely seen response, translating much of McMorris Rodgers’ leadership-approved speech into Spanish. Dozens of other Republicans immediately weighed in with news releases and observations to reporters stationed in Statuary Hall at the Capitol, the traditional post-speech gathering place for politicos. The flurry of reactions partly reflects the ongoing battle for power within Republican ranks, where competing blocs, from congressional leaders to conservative advocacy organizations, have quarreled over the party’s platform and its playbook for divided government. In an interview, Paul brushed off the suggestion that he was clashing with McMorris Rodgers. “I don’t consider it to be competing,” he said. “It’s just that we live in an age where you can get your opinion out there, but if you don’t videotape it and send it out, nobody listens. So we’re just trying to get more people to listen.”

Two sides to health law battle Overall, Obama’s scaleddown ambitions were reflected in how his speech compared with last year’s, which he concluded with an emotional appeal to Congress to approve a set of gun-control laws his administration had proposed after the mass shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. Congress rejected each of those proposals, and though Obama touched on gun violence briefly in Tuesday’s address, he has abandoned his call for broad measures in recent months. Instead, Obama also praised his health care law, which is both the signature achievement of his administration and — because of the fraught rollout of last year — the centerpiece of Republicans’ case against him. Obama described the situation of an Arizona woman, Amanda Shelley, who he said had obtained coverage Jan. 1 because of the law. On Jan. 6, she had emergency surgery — which, Obama said, “would have meant bankruptcy” if she had not been covered. Then, after saying that the law had made changes for the better, Obama made a blunter argument aimed at congressional Republicans. No matter what they thought of the law, they now had no choice but to live with it. “I know that the American people aren’t interested in refighting old battles,” Obama said. “So again, if you have specific plans to cut costs, cover more people and increase choice, tell America what you’d do differently. Let’s see if the numbers add up. But, let’s not have another 40-something votes to repeal a law that’s already helping millions of Americans like Amanda. The first 40 were plenty.” McMorris Rodgers said Republicans will continue to fight to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and she knocked the administration for the rocky rollout of the president’s signature law. “We’ve all talked to too many people who have received cancellation notices they didn’t expect or who can no longer see the doctors they always have,” she said. “No, we shouldn’t go back to the way things were, but the president’s health care law is not working.” “Republicans believe health care choices should be yours, not the government’s,” she added.

That case and others evoked passionate — bordering on angry — questions from some members of the Senate Finance Committee during a budget hearing for the department Berumen-Deines oversees. “What are we going to do so that doesn’t happen again, instead of just twiddling our thumbs?” asked Sen. George Muñoz, D-Gallup. Berumen-Deines said she favors changes in the guidelines that govern her department that would allow it to stay involved with families longer, in order to make sure they are following through with recommended services. Currently, she said, unless a child is removed from the home, the department has no authority to make certain that families are getting the treatment that’s prescribed. “In some cases, clients are very, very attuned to how to play the game,” Berumen-Deines said. “They make their appearances for two or three months, and then they drop off the plate until the next referral is made.” Budgets for fiscal year 2015 proposed by both the governor and the Legislative Finance Committee would reduce the number of vacant positions in protective services for children, although the governor’s plan would fund more investigators. Investigative caseworkers who review abuse and neglect complaints handle an average of 12 to 15 cases a month, and caseworkers who deal with placement handle approximately 20 cases per month, according to Jared Rounsville, division director of protective services for the Chil-

dren, Youth and Families Department. The department has set a target of 12 to 15 cases per month for placement caseworkers, and about 10 cases per month for investigators. Filling open positions and retaining the people who are hired will be keys to reaching those goals, Rounsville said. “[The caseload] is higher than we would like it to be,” he said. “We’ve seen it higher.” The number of open cases peaked in 2006 at about 2,600, and hit its contemporary low about two years ago at 1,700, according to Rounsville. Currently, between 1,950 and 1,975 cases are open. Berumen-Deines said the department is conducting a review of Omaree’s case, and while she would not reveal many details to the committee, she defended her department’s actions. “Things were done the way they needed to be done,” she said. “And ultimately, we have someone that was able to fall in the gaps. We responded appropriately.” Berumen-Deines acknowledged “a couple of situations” in which abuse or neglect of the boy was substantiated, triggering a recommended treatment strategy from the Children, Youth and Families Department. “We have managed to reduce the number of situations where children are killed when they’ve already been brought to our attention,” she said, “but I can’t guarantee that that’s not going to happen again.” Contact Patrick Malone at 968-3017 or pmalone@ Follow him on Twitter @ pmalonenm.

Mediator Brahimi: Syria peace talks slow but ‘still at it’ GENEVA — Syrian government anger over a U.S. decision to resume aid to the opposition prompted the U.N. mediator to cut short Tuesday’s peace talks, but he said no one was to blame for the impasse and that the negotiations would continue. A deal to allow humanitarian aid into Homs remained stalled, with the Syrian delegation demanding assurances the U.S. aid will not go to “armed and terrorist groups” in the besieged city.

U.N.-Arab League mediator Lakhdar Brahimi said he was relieved that the government and opposition said they will remain in the daily talks through Friday, as planned. “Nobody’s walking out. Nobody’s running away,” he said. “We have not actually

made a breakthrough, but we are still at it, and this is enough as far as I’m concerned.” There has been little progress toward resolving a key issue of whether President Bashar Assad should transfer power. The Associated Press

ete Seeger was a complicated man with a simple message: Make the world better, and be kind while doing it. To accomplish these goals, he harnessed hundreds of years of musical tradition into a single banjo and a single, unyielding human voice. It is tempting, from the short-memory vantage point of today, to see only the whitehaired grandfather, mellowed with age, already accustomed to being treated as an American icon. But that would be unwise. The belly fire inside Seeger was that of a young rebel unsatisfied with anything but energetically chasing his dreams of a more just America. Make no mistake: He was a pacifist through and through, but music was his weapon. “My own biggest thing in life,” he said once, “was simply being a link in a chain.” Seeger, who died Monday, was many things. Sometimes he lived in the country, sometimes he lived in town. He was equally at home on the range and in the union hall, on top of Old Smoky and in the apartments of Greenwich Village as a skinny teenager making music on World War II’s eve with men who would become legends and end up on postage stamps. From the beginning, everything about Seeger’s background seemed to point him toward his destiny. He was descended from dissent, from Americans who challenged authority. That stayed with him until the end, whether the authority was the mass media, large corporations or the House Un-American Activities Committee and the blacklists of the 1950s. He waited, kept singing, and outlasted it. He was the son of a folklorist who adored music and who surrounded him with song from his earliest years (and who was just as political, publicly opposing the U.S. entry into World War I). He started young on the ukelele, his gateway instrument to the banjo. Before he was 20, he was making music with Woody Guthrie, Josh White, Lead Belly and Burl Ives and absorbing each one’s traditions. They all came out later in his work with the Almanac Singers, the Weavers and, for six decades after that, on his own. The country’s foremost master of “folk music” didn’t much like the term. Seeger thought it relatively useless and generic. “There are as many kinds of folk music in the world,” he’d say, “as there are folk.” Like his friend Woody Guthrie, he was an interpreter of culture during eras where such skills are desperately needed but, for the most part, unrecognized. But while Guthrie grew up amid much of what he sang about, Seeger was pure East Coast — born in Manhattan, educated at Harvard until he decided it wasn’t

a good idea. His combination of background and motivations became the template for many of the performers who drove the “folk revival” of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s that brought traditional American music into the center stage of the rock and pop revolution. It helped produce, in its wake, everyone from Doc Watson to Dylan, from the Animals to Eric Clapton. Urban northeasterners like Seeger, John Cohen and Ralph Rinzler — and, eventually, others such as Minnesotan Robert Zimmerman — embarked on spelunking missions into the musical past, drawing on the field work of nomadic researchers John and Alan Lomax, Carl Sandburg and Cecil Sharp to inhale the vapors of the American songbook and exhale them in entirely new forms. They shared one key trait. What emerged in the 1960s, through both American and British musicians, was a tapestry of reinterpreted traditions. Robert Cantwell, in When We Were Good, a history of the folk revival, described Seeger as “a system of paradoxes” — “hermetically private and gregariously public, a solitary wanderer and at the same time an entire movement, a richly heterogeneous cultural symbol. And this was his power — the power to arouse the need to speak.” Speak he did. Most every major thread of American history in the past century passed through the human lightning rod that was Pete Seeger. He was a prominent voice on race, on poverty, on war and peace. What happened after the folk revival is just as interesting. Songs dreamed up or adapted by Seeger, who channeled them in very political ways, over time became American standards — everything from “If I Had a Hammer” and “Turn! Turn! Turn!” to “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” to “We Shall Overcome.” If the measure of activism’s success is that its message gets incorporated into the larger narrative, then Seeger accomplished what he set out to do, even if the postOccupy Wall Street world he left behind was not precisely the one he envisioned. In 2006, Seeger got as good as he gave when his reinterpretations of the American songbook were reinterpreted by Bruce Springsteen in a raucous, joyful CD called We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions. Now, with Seeger gone, the simple message that the complicated man carried remains just as important in a connected, wired, globalized world as it was in the patchwork of villages and farms and hollows about which he so often sang. “The human race,” he said, “is going to realize it’s going to have to start treating each other decently.” If they haven’t chosen an epitaph for Pete Seeger yet, that one might be worth considering.

America’s mass numbness

‘America does not stand still’

Dana Milbank

The Washington Post



f you think it’ll be a month of Sundays before this country gets serious about gun violence, you’re probably underestimating. It’s already been nearly three months of Mondays — 77, to be exact — and we’re not making progress. After the July 2012 shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., a group of Washington women — a preschool teacher, a retired principal and a few friends — resolved to meet outside the White House every Monday until the nation comes to its senses on guns. They’ve missed only a couple of Mondays since then because of extreme weather, and they’ve been there through the Navy Yard shootings, the Sikh temple shootings in Wisconsin and the school massacre in Newtown, Conn., among others, and they’ve been keeping a running list of victims. “There are 68 mass shootings on our timeline,” said Linda Finkel-Talvadkar, the retired principal. “Or was it 90?” inquired Barbara Elsas, the preschool teacher. “Shoot!” On second thought, don’t shoot. I had come to see the guncontrol activists because of the shootings Saturday at a mall in Columbia, Md., 25 miles outside Washington. For a few hours, cable news went with the story, but the incident quickly faded into a collective ho-hum. It apparently wasn’t a terrorist — police at this writing are still searching for a motive — and only three people were killed, including the shooter. That falls short of the standard

“mass murder” definition, which requires four deaths, not including the shooter. By any definition, the level of gun violence is obscene. USA Today reported last month that 934 people had died in mass shootings over the past seven years, and that’s only 1 percent of all gun-related homicides. The newspaper’s tally, including incidents in which four or more people were killed, was 146 mass shootings since 2006. A crowd-sourced count on Reddit of any gun incident in which four or more were shot found 365 mass shootings in 2013 alone. The liberal Center for American Progress’ ThinkProgress blog found that in the first 14 school days of this year, there had been at least seven school shootings of all types, compared with 28 in all of 2013. With so many shootings, it’s perhaps inevitable that the Columbia incident seems almost routine. The weapon used, a 12-gauge Mossberg shotgun, was ordinary, and the shooter reportedly had no criminal record and bought the gun legally. But it is this sort of numbness that the women outside the White House are trying to counteract with their

weekly vigils. They stand in the closed-to-traffic stretch of Pennsylvania Avenue, as few as two of them and as many as a dozen, wearing “Stop gun violence” pins and yellow crime-scene tape, and buttonholing passers-by during lunch hour. The women are not motivated by any personal connection to gun violence but by a generalized outrage. They have been involved in demonstrations since the civil rights and Vietnam War movements of the 1960s, but nothing recurring like this. At first, they had plenty of company outside the White House from the Brady Campaign and other gun-control organizations, but “after Newtown, those groups got swamped,” Elsas said, and the groups decamped to work on gun legislation that ultimately failed. The friends remained, and they’re disappointed that their action — and gun control in general — has not gained more news media attention. They said most of the interest has been from foreign media — Russian, German, Japanese — that are curious about American gun culture. Yet the women continue, week after week. On Monday, a strong wind was blowing

their signs down the street and one of their trash bags over the fence and onto the White House lawn. Moments later, the wind toppled their supply cart, to which was taped a Margaret Mead quotation about a small group of committed citizens changing the world. Another gust sent a protest sign at Elsas’ head, knocking off her glasses. I asked if they worried they might become part of the scenery, like the nearby anti-nukes encampment, or the ubiquitous Falun Gong demonstrators who also were on location Monday. Elsas said they aren’t concerned about that, “because, unfortunately, these shootings keep happening.” And the women can point to small triumphs from their conversations — 100 per week, they say — including the time they won over two pro-gun skateboarders who decided to join their protest. “We haven’t given up hope,” Elsas said. Real gun control, FinkelTalvadkar added, “will happen in our lifetime.” Good health, ladies. Follow Dana Milbank on Twitter @milbank.


Massive trade pact will hurt American dream


resident Barack Obama is trying to fast-track the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a massive trade pact with 11 Asian and Latin American nations, through Congress. Data from 20 years of NAFTA and subsequent deals show us that these pacts send good-paying jobs offshore and depress wages in the jobs that remain. President Obama wants Congress to grant him fast track trade authority so he can sign the TPP before Congress even gets to vote, and then railroad the pact through with limited debate and no amendments. Our representative should vote no on fast-tracking the TPP. Beth Hundley

Santa Fe

The Trans-Pacific Partnership would be disastrous for the environment, for worker pay and safe working conditions, for local economies, for Internet freedom, for human rights and for us all. Even members of Congress aren’t allowed to read the whole TPP, and yet President Barack Obama wants fast-track authority to sign the agreement and get it passed with limited debate and no amendments. This not only sets a horrible

We demand full committee hearings on the Trans-Pacific Partnership. President Barack Obama and Congress, how dare you do this to freedom of speech and the American people. And you, Mr. President, do not give to the American people with one hand (Affordable Care Act) and take away with the other hand (our personal freedoms). You, of any elected leader, I would think would understand this. I would hope you would not disappoint us in this respect again.

And how much, relatively speaking, those would be worth now? When Debbie Jaramillo tried to stop the Santa Fe Municipal Airport? When you could dance on sawdust at the El Paseo? When Genoveva Chavez was a singer instead of a center? When Club West was a wonderful place to dance and meet people? When the Hotel St. Francis bar had waitstaff from St. John’s who knew more than you did about literature? When Club Luna featured Leon Russell? Shakespeare in the Park? Café Escalera? When Gov.

he State of the Union is frozen. That assessment did not make President Barack Obama’s speech last night — the president has to remain upbeat, set his agenda and promise that in the coming year his policies and plans will make a difference in the lives of ordinary Americans. His big line in 2014? “America does not stand still and neither will I.” Yet, despite new promises made and old promises abandoned, the truth is that America is (mostly) standing still. Congress hasn’t budged. Thus, the nation remains frozen (and, to add to the general woe, the country is enduring one of the coldest Januarys on record; our other big national event of midwinter, the Super Bowl, will be played outdoors in New Jersey with a game-day high forecast to barely reach the 30s. We are frozen, both in spirit and in fact right now.) The solution, President Obama told the nation, is for him to go it alone. What he cannot do through legislation, he will attempt through executive order, including a wage hike for federal contract workers. Millions of workers in the private sector might not see wages raised to an acceptable $10.10 an hour — but employees who work for companies that receive new or changing federal contracts will. He can do that. Whether Obama can persuade Congress to move, and increase wages to $10.10 from the current anemic $7.25 an hour, is unlikely. But the president will not stand still. He has learned his lesson. In 2013, the president’s initiatives on sensible gun reform and immigration were stalled. His signature health care reform had a rocky launch, a self-inflicted wound that still could prove fatal to the most important social program since the War on Poverty. Obama let events in Syria run their course, rather than invading or sending weapons to the rebels early on — showing patience rather than the false certainty prized by many in the Washington corridor. The government shut down entirely. It was not a good year. This State of the Union, then, was designed to help Obama put his presidency — and the country — back on track. He has a difficult path, with a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showing that 68 percent of the American people said the country is either stagnant or worse off since Obama took office. That is factually incorrect, of course. The country was bleeding jobs when Obama became president; it had lost some 4.5 million jobs just in the year before Obama took office. There have been 46 straight months of private sector job growth since, not to mention a soaring stock market. The United States was involved in two wars abroad. He kept his promise as a candidate and is ending needless military involvement abroad. He did pass health care reform; its launch was unacceptable, but millions of people who otherwise had to go begging at the emergency room are receiving care. Much more remains to be done, of course. To move the country again, we trust that President Obama will not have to go it entirely alone (and certainly he must not push presidential power so far as to be unconstitutional). We see a few promising signs. Congress did pass a budget earlier this month; the farm bill is expected to pass this week. The frozen Congress — perhaps — is starting to thaw. Some type of immigration reform is thought to be possible in 2014, so long as serious discussions begin late enough that Republican incumbents can’t be primaried by more conservative foes. Such stumbling first steps toward bipartisanship are hardly worthy of the challenges the nation faces — a changing climate, a widening gap between rich and poor, a turbulent Middle East, dismantling government spying on citizens, improving public education and so much more. The president is right. The United States must not sit still, not even in an election year when one party is hoping to wreck the ship of state enough to be swept back into power. It’s time for a thaw, for movement, and an end to this frozen state of being.

The past 100 years From The Santa Fe New Mexican: Jan. 29, 1914: Washington — President Wilson reiterated today that the Mexican policy of the administration for the present would continue to be one of watchful waiting. No decision has been reached on lifting the embargo on arms and ammunition and no prediction was made as to when a change of policy might occur. It was conceded at the White House that the practical operation of the embargo has been to deny ammunition to the constitutionalists, as their only external source of supply, while the Huerta government has been buying abroad. The United States has not asked foreign governments to enforce restrictions, and therefore, has not objected to the shipment of arms from Japan and other countries.

Reader is disturbed by undressed babies Dear Annie: Why is it OK to photograph children and babies half-dressed or naked? I don’t mean pornography. I’m writing about family photos, TV shows and magazine advertisements. Babies are people who have no say over their own bodies. I feel sorry for these children. I don’t think it’s cute or adorable. They would look just as cute in a little dress or suit. Why exploit them this way? I believe there should be a law against photographing children who are not fully dressed. — Concerned in Galesburg, Ill. Dear Galesburg: Babies and toddlers like to be naked. They often remove their clothing whether you want them to or not. And they generally make a mess, so their clothes must be changed several times a day. Most people would disagree that they aren’t cute and adorable, with or without clothes. There are laws against child pornography, which is sick and disgusting. But babies without clothing are in a perfectly natural state of being. Dear Annie: “We are here! We are here!” This is a gentle suggestion to consider reminding your readers that they can contact their local YWCA for help with many of the issues you address in your column.

mend that our readers contact the YWCA, as well as the other service and counseling agencies we often mention. Your organization does a wonderful job for the community, and we appreciate the reminder. Dear Annie: I agree wholeheartedly with your response to “Searching for Answers.” He said his wife had the energy to run five miles a day, but wasn’t interested in sex. Among other things, you asked how much he was helping with the house and kids and said his wife might want to do something just for herself. I was married to a nice guy for 10 years, and we had two small children. We both worked full-time jobs, but once we got home from work, I began my second job, which consisted of fixing dinner, doing laundry, cleaning the house, ensuring the kids had their homework done and driving them to after-school activities. My ex’s evening consisted of eating dinner and then leaving to drink beer with his friends and work on their race cars. Requests for help taking care of the house and the kids went unheeded. When he returned home at night, I was exhausted, and he was expecting sex. I became angry and resentful and couldn’t stand the thought of him touching me. Husbands, if you would do your part to help with the kids and household chores, your wife’s attitude toward you may change. Take her out to dinner once a week. Don’t ask her where she would like to go. Make all of the arrangements, and let her relax for a change. Tell her how great she looks. Encourage her when she wants a little time for herself. She’ll appreciate you for it. Above all, do these things without the expectation of sex. Working mothers are exhausted. Once we can see that you aren’t doing these things for sex, we’ll be able to appreciate you for your genuine care and concern for the family. — Single Grandma and Lovin’ It

Indian group reignites ‘Redskins’ debate Video contends Washington’s team name derogatory, racist By Uriel J. Garcia The New Mexican

As football fans prepare for Super Bowl Sunday, an American Indian rights group released a video Monday aimed at reigniting debate over use of the name Redskins for the NFL team in Washington, D.C. The National Congress of American Indians, a Washington-based group, produced a video titled Proud to be, in which it shows footage of various Native American cultures across the country. “Proud, forgotten, Indian,” the narrator says in the beginning of the video as images of

young and older Indian people appear. “Native Americans call themselves many things. The one thing, they don’t … ” the narrator says toward the end of the two-minute video as a clip of a Washington Redskins helmet appears next to a football. The group for years has protested the use by professional sports teams of Native American logos or names that it considers racist, according to the National Congress of American Indians. The group has recently targeted the NFL team because some say the term “Redskins” is derogatory toward American Indians. In October, the group released a report titled “Ending the Legacy of Racism in Sports & the Era of Harmful ‘Indian’ Sports Mascots,” explaining how the NFL team’s name is racist and how it has negatively affected American

Grissom named interim president of SFCC Leader appointed acting president when Guzmán was fired late last year By Robert Nott The New Mexican

Propane prices surge

In what Governing Board members described as an effort to create unity on the Santa Fe Community College campus and buy time to conduct a search for a new president, the school’s overseers voted 4-0 Tuesday evening to appoint Randy Grissom as interim president for 18 months. The action drew applause from the roughly 25 spectators. Grissom, who has worked in various capacities at the college since it opened in 1983, was appointed acting president late last year after the board voted 3-2 to terminate former president Ana “Cha” Guzmán. Board member Kathy Keith told the assembly that the decision gives the board time to create a search committee to initiate a search for a new president in January 2015. Grissom has said he is interested in becoming president on a longer-term basis. He currently is paid $125,000 a year. Board member Linda Siegle said details of his contract — which likely will include a raise — will be worked out and will be presented and approved during the board’s Feb-

PRC gets ethics training Robin Morel checks the gauge on her 500-gallon propane tank at her home Tuesday. This past month, she said, her utility bills skyrocketed — she received a $1,400 bill to fill her propane tank. A cold snap in the Midwest and on the East Coast is contributing to a nationwide supply crunch, causing prices to rise. PHOTOS BY JANE PHILLIPS/THE NEW MEXICAN

or 75,000 households in New Mexico, it isn’t unusual to go through a few tanks of propane every winter. Propane customers are likely to see their next propane delivery this winter cost even more, as the second cold snap in a month is sucking down supplies and driving up prices on the East Coast and in the Midwest and South. “We’re facing a crunch because the Midwest and the East is in a crunch,” said Baron Glasgow, director of several propane trade associations in the West, including New Mexico. Robin Morel, who lives off N.M. 14 south of Santa Fe, knows about the higher prices. In December, she got a $1,400 propane bill, which was about twice as much as what she had paid in the prior few months to keep her 500-gallon tank filled. “When I got that bill, I said fine, I’ll wear more clothes,” said Morel, 60. “I keep the thermostats down to 67 now.” Glasgow said the extended cold snaps are just one reason for higher prices. The propane problems began last fall, according to the National Propane Gas Association. Midwest farmers had to harvest crops across a wide area at the same time and needed propane heaters to dry out wet crops prior to storage. The need drove up demand in the area. Then a major pipeline serving Minnesota suppliers had to be closed and repaired. The supply disruption caused a chain reaction. Canadian imports were disrupted by rerouted trains, forcing Minnesota and Wisconsin retail dealers to buy propane off Iowa pipelines. Then snowstorms and cold snaps began pummeling the Midwest, East and South, hiking up demand among customers. In addition, the U.S. has gone from importing propane to exporting it around the world. More than 20 percent of U.S. propane production was

exported last year, up from 5 percent in 2008, Glasgow said. The U.S. Energy Information Administration called the demand in the last month the biggest drawdown of natural gas and propane seen in the 20 years for which the agency has records. Amerigas, which serves 2 million customers nationwide, including in New Mexico, was rationing supplies this week to some regions, according to spokesman Simon Bowman. “However, we are working hard to alleviate these supply issues and ensure that all of our customers are taken care of,” he said. Bowman said wholesale propane prices were up 60 percent this year, compared to last year. The Energy Information Administration tracks retail and wholesale prices in states with larger customer bases, but not New Mexico. The New Mexico Propane Gas Association doesn’t give out the information, Glasgow said. At Pendleton Oil and Gas in Las Vegas, N.M., the cost of propane is $2.79 a gallon, about 40 cents a gallon higher than last year. In the Midwest, spot propane prices hit close to $5 a gallon this week, but in Texas, costs were

lower, running $1.52 per gallon Tuesday. Glasgow said the 100 propane marketers in New Mexico usually keep about 10 days worth of propane supplies on hand. Now they’re competing with suppliers elsewhere to buy and stock propane for customers. He said propane groups are working at the state and federal level to stay on top of the fuel crunch. The Department of Transportation issued a waiver for hours of allowed service to companies in 31 states, giving them flexibility on propane deliveries. Truck drivers are usually limited in the number of hours and days each week they can deliver propane. Glasgow said trade organizations are working with the federal government to boost funding for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, which helps families with heating and cooling costs. “The program is really important for New Mexico because there are so many lowincome families,” Glasgow said. Glasgow said the crunch may continue as long as the temperatures stay icy across the country. “Hopefully warmer weather is around the corner,” he said.

In response to a decade in which the state Public Regulation Commission suffered more than one black eye from ethics violations, lawmakers decided last year to mandate ethics training for the five commissioners who serve on the Public Regulation Commission. The commissioners are now working to meet the requirement through New Mexico Edge, a program at New Mexico State University’s Cooperative Extension Service. Three of the commissioners have completed all nine courses required to get their ethics certification from New Mexico Edge, and two — Patrick Lyons and Karen Montoya — are shy three courses each, but have until July to finish them. Lyons, who has spent years in public office, said while he doesn’t know whether ethics can really be legislated, he’s enjoyed the courses. Commissioner Valerie Espinoza, who represents District 3 including Santa Fe, said, “New instruction is always helpful. Makes you recognize that there is a set of policies and laws in place that you must abide by.” During the past decade, various former commissioners have been arrested and some convicted on charges ranging from marijuana possession to fraudulent use of a stateissued gas credit card. Past lawsuits alleging whistle-blower retaliation to sexual harassment has cost the PRC thousands of dollars in legal fees and settlements. The ethics course requirement was among several changes to the PRC in the last couple of years to address various problems at the agency. The

Man accused of threatening teen Man suspected of killing judge’s By Chris Quintana The New Mexican

Santa Fe police arrested a 76-year-old man Monday morning at Santa Fe Preparatory School after he allegedly pointed a handgun at a 17-year-old senior in a student parking lot on the east-side campus. The man, Allan Wheeler, reportedly was outraged by the student’s reckless driving and followed him into the parking lot, where the teen said he pulled out a gun, pointed it at the boy’s stomach and demanded his license and registration. The student admitted to police that he had passed other vehicles in a nopassing zone, said Celina Westervelt, the police department’s spokeswoman. In an email to parents Tuesday morning, Head of School Jim Leonard said a maintenance man stationed at the lot across Camino de Cruz Blanca from the main

school buildings saw the confrontation and suggested they go to Leonard’s office to resolve Allan the issue. Wheeler The maintenance man did not see a handgun, according to Leonard’s message about the incident. According to a police department news release, Wheeler left the campus while police were summoned, but returned while officers were interviewing the student. He denied having a gun on campus but admitted to confronting the student for “driving like a maniac.” Asked why he left, Wheeler reportedly said he had started to feel paranoid, but decided to return to tell his side of the story.

No gun was found on his person or in his vehicle, Westervelt said, although officers did find a nylon gun holster inside Wheeler’s coat. Westervelt said police are in the process of obtaining a warrant to search Wheeler’s home for the firearm. No one was injured, but Westervelt said the student was “shaken,” and there was a special assembly with all students and faculty “to reassure them that everyone is OK,” Leonard wrote. He also said security would be on campus during the coming weeks. Wheeler currently faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, child abuse, unlawful carrying of a firearm for carrying a weapon on school grounds and tampering with evidence. As of Wednesday night, he was being held at the Santa Fe County jail without bond.

No attorney was listed for Williams. An arraignment for him on the latest charges has been postponed until Thursday, officials said.

Lopez says the investigation was hindered by carbon monoxide in the partially closed culvert.

DENVER — Two Colorado cantaloupe farmers linked to the nation’s deadliest outbreak of foodborne illness in a quarter-century were sentenced Tuesday to probation and home detention, but the judge said he wasn’t sending them to prison so they could work to pay off $150,000 each in restitution. Before they were sentenced, Eric and Ryan Jensen read statements apologizing to the victims of the 2011 listeria outbreak, which killed 33 people and sickened 147 in 28 states, according to federal health authorities. Both brothers pleaded guilty to federal charges of introducing adulterated food into interstate commerce. They could have faced six years in prison and fines of $1.5 million each, but Magistrate Judge Michael E. Hegarty said he chose not impose either so they could continue working to support their families and pay restitution. Each will serve five years of probation and six months of home detention and perform 100 hours of community service. Before the Jensens apologized and were sentenced, seven people whose loved ones died from listeria made emotional statements to the judge, some forgiving, some bitter. “I can’t begin to describe how ghastly it is to watch someone die,” said Patricia Hauser. She said her husband, Michael, suffered a slow and agonizing death. Occasionally looking toward the Jensen brothers as she spoke, Hauser said they should be sentenced to prison and fined. She told the judge she was “very bitter.” “Someone took my Michael from me, and it just isn’t fair,” she said. Jim Weathered said his father, also named Jim, died of listeria

but would have wanted probation for the Jensens. “Sending those boys to jail isn’t going to help anybody in this situation,” said Weathered, who often struggled to control his emotions during his brief statement. Paul F. Schwarz said he would accept whatever sentence Hegarty handed down after the death of his father, Paul A. Schwarz. But at one point, he looked toward the Jensens and asked, “What were you thinking?” Eric Jensen sat facing the lectern and watched each victim speak. Ryan Jensen sat beside the lectern and slightly in front of it, looking straight ahead. Both appeared to listen attentively but neither showed any emotion. Both declined comment after the hearing. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jaime Pena took the unusual step of praising the Jensens, saying they have cooperated more fully than any other defendant in his experience. He said the brothers had met with the victims in a “very difficult and emotional session.” Pena said the Jensens did not know they were shipping contaminated cantaloupe. He called the outbreak “an American tragedy.” Federal investigators said the melons likely were contaminated in the packing house of the Jensen’s southeastern Colorado farm because of dirty water on the floor and old, hardto-clean processing equipment.

Minus startUNM 78 ing center Alex Utah St. 65 Kirk for a second straight game, the Lobos remained red hot away from The Pit by beating Utah State 78-65 on Tuesday night in the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum in Logan, Utah. New Mexico improves to 16-4 overall and 7-1 in the Mountain West Conference, second only to No. 5 San Diego State in the league race. The Aztecs (18-1, 7-0) were idle on Tuesday. The Lobos continued their surprising start on the MWC road, winning their fifth straight game without a loss. It equals the program’s best start in road games in conference play and keeps them in step with SDSU atop the league standings. Credit for Tuesday’s win will go largely to forward Cameron Bairstow and guard Kendall Williams. The pair led four Lobos in double figures as Bairstow had a game-high 22 and Williams 16. Big contributors were Obij Aget, Deshawn Delaney and Cullen Neal. Aget started in place of Kirk and scored a career-high seven points with four rebounds before fouling out. Delaney matched a career-high with 12 points while Neal drained three 3-pointers and had 12 points off the bench. Kirk’s absence forced UNM head coach Craig Neal to dig deeper into

Push athletes want medals, not glory Bobsledders’ grunt work makes or breaks team By Tim Reynolds

The Associated Press

The pay is awful, the workplace is freezing, making a mistake is about the only way to get noticed and trips down the mountain are always accompanied by some big-time turbulence. Such is life as a bobsled push athlete. Glamour-seekers need not apply. They are the offensive linemen of bobsledding, anonymous yet essential. Drivers get all the credit, but on race day it’s often the push athletes who make all the difference — and the corps of pushers who’ll cram into the sleds that the U.S. has taken to the Sochi Olympics may be the world’s best. “I think it’s the deepest group we’ve ever had,” U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation CEO Darrin Steele said. Hoping to win medals in two-man, four-man and women’s bobsledding in Sochi, the U.S. has spent tons of

Prep’s defense stymies Mora in 8th straight win By James Barron

The New Mexican


ffense can come and go, and free-throwing shooting can be a mess for the Santa Fe Prep Blue Grif-

fins. But defense is forever. In a District 2AA boys basketball opener against Mora on Tuesday night, Prep cooled off after hitting 12 of its first 16 shots and overcame a 14-for-28 effort from the charity stripe, but Mora had no answer against the Blue Griffins defense. The result was a 64-40 win in Prep Gymnasium that made it eight

straight wins for Prep and an undefeated January (7-0) to boot. Ever since holding Tularosa to eight second-half points in a 65-33 win, the Blue Griffins (14-4 overall) have implemented a blue-collar work ethic on the defensive end. They have not allowed an opponent to score more than 46 points since then. In the second half against Mora, Prep forced the Rangers into 5-for30 shooting. Mora (6-12) hit just three of its last 27 shots after going 2-for-3 to start the third quarter and crept within 33-26 after Casimiro Fresquez’s 3-pointer with 6:36 left.

That mattered more to Prep head coach Dennis Casados than anything else. “We’re not going to do anything on the offensive end unless we stop them on the defensive side,” Casados said. “And the guys know that.” They also know that the best way to score on offense is to put the ball in the hands of big men Will Lenfestey and Ian Andersson.

NEWARK, N.J. — The booming voice rose above the din at Prudential Center to interrupt the hullabaloo and proclaim, “That concludes the Denver Broncos’ media day session.” The five happiest people in the New Jersey Devils’ arena were the team’s starting offensive linemen. They had dreaded this hour-long interview session, not for its notorious nuttiness, but because it meant more face time with the media than they’d spent all season speaking with reporters, at least on the record. Carrying on the tradition of Denver’s Super Bowl teams of the late 1990s that let Shannon Sharpe dish up the sound bites, these laconic linemen would rather be seen and not heard. “Yeah, that’s exactly what it is: let your pads do the talking,” left tackle Chris Clark said. “It’s not about the glitz and glam for us.” Yet, it was hard to ignore this group that allowed the fewest sacks in the league and eight times kept Peyton Manning from getting get touched at all — including both playoff games — while also boring the holes for fifth-year running back Knowshon Moreno’s first 1,000-yard season. Anchored by prized free agent acquisition Louis Vasquez, the massive right guard gave Manning ample space to step into all those throws to set NFL records with 55 TDs and 5,447 yards through the air. All this despite losing star left tackle Ryan Clady to a season-ending foot injury in Week 2 after signing a $52 million contract. He underwent surgery and joined last year’s starting center, Dan Koppen (knee) on I.R. Clark replaced Clady, leaving just two members of Denver’s O-line starting at the same position as last year: left guard Zane Beadles and right tackle Orlando Franklin. Manny

During that time, things were not going so well for the Sundevils — to put it mildly. There was a rift between the players and head coach Richard Martinez, and Martinez thought the whole program was going to fall apart, but then a couple of wins changed everything. After taking care of Santa Fe High in Toby Roybal Memorial Gymnasium and then escaping with a close win over Capital at home, Martinez and the players have said that they are now united and having fun — all because of two wins. That the Sundevils are now “united” speaks to the greater effects of winning and losing on the chemistry of a team. After a win, players are all smiles and are in a good mood while blasting whatever their victory song is in the locker room. After a loss, it is common to see players yell-

ing and fighting with each other as if they were enemies. But teams aren’t the only things that are labeled as winners and losers. Those two terms are often used to describe people too. If someone is successful, someone might be like, “Hey, that guy is a winner,” or if someone is experiencing the more unfortunate side of life, people might opine, “Man, that guy is such a loser.” Regardless of where a person or a team lies on the winner-loser spectrum, there is no doubting that winning is great and that losing sucks. A win or a loss can be the difference between a team that is united or a team that is in shambles. Like the great Vince Lombardi said: “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.” In the case of the health and chemistry of a team, that is absolutely true.

Seattle RB Lynch walks out of media day By Barry Wilner

The Associated Press

NEWARK, N.J. — Marshawn Lynch was there. He even talked a bit. Then he was gone, cutting short his Super Bowl media day appearance after 6½ minutes. And then he was back, albeit to the side of the “mixed zone” the NFL created for players not on podiums or in microphone-equipped speaking areas at the Prudential Center. But this time he wasn’t speaking, except briefly to Deion Sanders for NFL Network, to the Seahawks website, and to Armed Forces Network. Seattle’s star running back, wearing a cap, hood and dark sunglasses, even acknowledged he was trying to avoid being fined by the league for not meeting his media requirements Tuesday. That’s why he returned to the floor of the arena rather than disappear completely after he cut short his Q-and-A with perhaps 100 media members packed together trying to hear his pearls of wisdom. When he came back, one reporter asked Lynch, “Are you trying to avoid being fined by standing here?” Lynch twice nodded his head yes. Earlier this month, Lynch was fined $50,000 for not cooperating with the Seattle media. The NFL put the fine on hold, saying it would be rescinded if he complied with media obligations. “Players are required to participate and he participated. We will continue to monitor the situation,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Tuesday. Lynch has required media sessions Wednesday and Thursday. The Seahawks play the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Along with letting slip a profanity to Sanders, he three times described himself as “smooth” to the Hall of Fame cornerback, adding: “I ain’t never seen no talk that won me nothing.” Earlier, Lynch answered 16 questions

at the outset of the Seahawks’ onehour availability, with topics ranging from the Denver defense to teammate Michael Robinson to, well, why he avoids interviews. “I like to keep it low key,” said Lynch, whom the Seahawks opted to not place in one of the 17 areas with microphones and name plates identifying the players. “I’m just about action. You say ‘hut’ and there’s action. All the unnecessary talk, it don’t do nothing for me. I appreciate that people want to hear from me, but I just go to work and do my thing. You feel me?” Whether Lynch will feel like showing up the next two days, when the Seahawks will be available in a hotel ballroom — no barriers between them and the media — is uncertain. Lynch also talked to teammates

while standing around. Several youngsters in the stands above him asked to have footballs signed, and he obliged once they tossed him the souvenirs. He also signed a Seahawks helmet, but he didn’t converse with the fans. While he did that, about five dozen media members stood in front of Lynch and shouted out a few questions. He ignored almost all of them as time ran out in Seattle’s availability. Lynch watched as the scoreboard clock counted down to zero and, when it was announced the Seattle portion of media availability was over, he left for good. “He’s such a major factor on our football team,” coach Pete Carroll said, “but in this setting he becomes somewhat of a recluse and doesn’t want to be a part of it. We try and respect that as much as we can.”

St. Mike’s girls overcome Socorro SCOREBOARD

The New Mexican

The St. Michael’s girls basketball team tried to jump out to an early lead over the host Socorro Lady Warriors in a nondistrict game on St. Michael’s 44 Tuesday night, but it didn’t happen as fast Socorro 34 as Lady Horsemen head coach Martin Romero would have liked. The Lady Horsemen trailed 10-8 at the end of the first quarter but went on to win 44-34 in a hostile environment after outscoring the Lady Warriors in every quarter thereafter. “We tried to jump out to a quick lead, but that didn’t materialize for us,” Romero said. “That could have cost us playing in Socorro. Anytime you get a win in Socorro is a good thing because that’s a tough place.” After the slow start, St. Michael’s (12-7) got the lead thanks to good minutes from the whole team. “We were able to get some shots and we

got a good spark off the bench,” Romero said. Alex Groenewold led the Lady Horsemen with 13 points while Jackie Lara chipped in with 10. Maria Alderete paced the Lady Warriors with 12 points. St. Michael’s opens up the District 5AAA season at Albuquerque Hope Christian on Feb. 4.

PiedRa ViSTa 59, POjOaque VaLLey 57 The Elkettes’ furious rally from a 49-36 fourth-quarter deficit fell short as their last-second 3 to win the nondistrict game in Farmington missed. “We had a good shot at the end,” Pojoaque head coach Ron Drake said. “We got a wide-open 3 and just missed it. It would have been a good win over there.” Miranda Martinez led Pojoaque (11-9) with 15 points, and Aaliya Casados had 11. Piedra Vista was led by 18 points from Rytisha Brown and 17 from Kaleigh Graham. PecOS 73, PeñaScO 53 After dropping four straight games, the Lady Panthers of Pecos smothered the Lady Panthers of Peñasco in both teams’

District 2AA opener. Pecos (6-12 overall) ended the first quarter with a 24-5 lead without running much of an offense. “We were able to make some adjustments in our press and it worked out well for us,” Pecos head coach Leroy Barela said. “We were scoring a lot in transition.” Megan Armijo led all Pecos scorers with 17 points in two and a half quarters. Alexis CdeBaca scored 15 points for Pecos while Shannon Medina led Peñasco (6-13) with 18 points. BOYS

eSPañOLa VaLLey 47, LOS aLaMOS 43 The Hilltoppers nearly toppled the Sundevils as they had a 34-31 lead going into the fourth quarter of a District 2AAAA game in Edward Medina Gymnasium. Española (11-9, 3-0) then went on a 16-9 run in the fourth quarter to keep Los Alamos (1-19, 0-3) winless in the district. Jared Garduño had 12 points to lead the Sundevils while Marcos Flores pitched in nine. Franklin Archuleta had 12 points to lead the Hilltoppers.

Prep: Andersson, Lenfestey dominate Mora Continued from Page B-5 The pair scored 13 of the Blue Griffins’ first 26 points as they fashioned a 26-5 lead on Andersson’s leaner with 6:37 left in the second quarter. Until that point, Prep hit 12 of its first 16 shots. After that, the temperature dropped thanks to a 3-for-14 performance, which allowed Mora to scratch and claw its way back into the game. The Blue Griffins turned the offense inside-out by shooting from the outside first. “We get ahead of ourselves,” Andersson said. “We stop running our offense and we basically go [isolation] and that’s not how we’re going to win games.” Andersson reminded them how Prep can win, by dominating the third quarter with nine points, nine rebounds, three blocks and a steal. His putback with 6:20 left in the third started a decisive 13-1 run that sealed the win for Prep and cemented Andersson’s and Lenfestey’s dominance in the paint. “They dominated us inside,” Mora head coach James Branch said. “Lenfestey and him, they had [44 points]. I mean, we just couldn’t handle them.” If only the Rangers had a big man to contend with the Prep duo. Whatever size they had literally left with brothers Americk and the 6-foot-3 Curtis Vasquez (who transferred to Albuquerque Volcano Vista in the summer) and Cody Najar, who transferred to West Las Vegas in October and won an injunction in district court last week to play for the Dons. Mora senior guard Jeremiah Olivas said Najar even reached out to the Mora coaching staff two weeks ago to return to play. A meeting was set up with the team and Najar to discuss it, but Najar never appeared. On Jan. 22, he was granted an injunction to play for West Las Vegas after exhausting his hardship appeals through the New Mexico Activities Association. “He would have been an asset to the team,” Olivas said. Emmerick Martinez, at 5-10, was all Branch had to counter the 6-4 Lenfestey (23 points) and the 6-5 Andersson (21, along with 20 rebounds).

JANE PHILLIPS/THE NEW MEXICAN GIRLS MORa 54, SanTa Fe PReP 30 If there’s one thing the Rangerettes treasure, it’s their stranglehold on District 2AA. And they started this district season on the right foot. Mora (14-3) held Prep to just two secondquarter points to build a 29-5 lead at the half. “Once we got the shots to go, the rest just sort of fell into place,” Mora head coach Mark Cassidy said.

The only excitement on the Prep side came at halftime when senior Liam Daly, a swimmer, hit a half-court, back-to-thebasket shot that had the boys team rush him in celebration. As for the Prep girls, head coach Anika Amon repeated an oft-uttered tale. “It’s hard for them to believe they can beat them,” Amon said. “It’s going to take that one miracle win for them to start believing. Until they get that win, when Mora walks onto the court, they’re already 10 points up.”

Lobos: Kirk’s status remains uncertain his bench than he normally does. He used 10 players, including seldom-used guards Devon Williams and Merv Lindsay. Bairstow and Kendall Williams carried the load for the early part of the first half, combining to score 15 of the Lobos’ first 18 points. Bairstow had a pair of driving layups while Williams twice beat the Aggies (12-8, 2-6) down the floor for fastbreak scoops. Leading 20-13 after Delaney converted on a drive, New Mexico gave up an 8-0 run to fall behind again. The catalyst was Utah State’s outside shooting as the Aggies hit 5 of 6 from 3-point range to start the game.

Then again, the Lobos were dialed in from long distance, too. They answered Utah State’s run with a 15-5 spurt in which every point came on 3-pointers; one each from Delaney, Cleveland Thomas and Hugh Greenwood while Neal had a pair. UNM carried a 41-33 lead into halftime, committing just two turnovers in a fast-paced 20 minutes in which sharp shooting and aggressive offense were the name of the game. Williams gave the Lobos their biggest lead at the time when he grabbed a Delaney miss in transition, paused in the lane as he exhausted his dribble and then spun through three Aggies for a bucket to

make it 47-35 with 18 minutes remaining. The Aggies cut it two a onepossession game when Preston Medlin’s 3-pointer from the top of the key reduced UNM’s lead to 54-52 with 9 minutes, 42 seconds left in the game, but Bairstow kick-started a decisive 14-5 with a pair of free throws, followed by a long 3-pointer from Neal as the shot clock wound down. Aget had five points during the run, scoring on consecutive trips; once on a dunk off an assist from Bairstow, another on a putback and accompanying free throw as he was fouled on the shot. That same run featured an

unusual lineup, one featuring just one familiar starter — Greenwood — along with Aget, Lindsay, Neal and Nick Banyard. The Lobos outrebounded the Aggies 36-30, dominating the game on the glass in the second half with a 21-10 advantage. As for Kirk, his status for the immediate future still remains unclear. He again wore a walking boot on his left foot while sitting on the bench for Tuesday’s game. New Mexico returns home to open a stretch in which it will play five of the next eight MWC games in The Pit. It all starts Saturday when they host San Jose State at 6:05 p.m.

Rockets rally for win over Spurs

PELICANS 100, CAVALIERS 89 In Cleveland, Anthony Davis scored 30 points with eight blocks and seven rebounds, and Eric Gordon scored 20 to lead New Orleans over the Cavaliers. Davis, one of three No. 1 overall picks in the game, was dominant at both ends of the floor as the Pelicans won their third straight. He injured fingers on his left hand in the final minutes, but got taped up during a timeout and stayed in. New Orleans scored 16 straight points to close the first half and opened a 22-point lead in the third, causing some fans to boo the listless Cavaliers.

Jeff Green scored 14 points for the Celtics, who have lost three straight and six of seven. Rajon Rondo had seven points and five assists, shooting 3 of 13 in his sixth game of the season after returning from a torn ACL. PISTONS 103, MAGIC 87 In Auburn Hills, Mich., Andre Drummond had 13 points and 17 rebounds, and Detroit snapped a four-game losing streak. Drummond bounced back from a poor outing at Dallas over the weekend, and the Pistons led comfortably throughout the second half. Detroit has struggled to close out games at home this season, but this time the Pistons turned a double-digit lead into a rout.

WICHITA, Kan. — Cleanthony Early scored 23 points, including 12 of the 21 Wichita State 4 Wichita St. 57 scored in the Loyola of Ch. 45 second half, to help the fourth-ranked Shockers stay unbeaten with a 57-45 victory over Loyola of Chicago on Tuesday night. Wichita State (22-0, 9-0 Missouri Valley Conference) saw a 22-point second-half lead trimmed to nine in the game’s final minutes but hung on to extend school records for winning streak and start to a season. The Shockers shot 23 percent (6 of 26) in the second half. NO. 7 MICHIGAN ST. 71, NO. 15 IOWA 69 (OT) In Iowa City, Iowa, Keith Appling scored 16 points, and Michigan State handed Iowa its first home loss of the season. Matt Costello had 11 points and 12 rebounds for the Spartans (19-2, 8-1 Big Ten), who avoided consecutive defeats despite missing injured starters Adreian Payne and Branden Dawson. Costello’s tip-in with 1:14 left gave Michigan State a 67-64 lead, and Russell Byrd’s 3 with 34 seconds put Michigan State up by six. LSU 87, NO. 11 KENTUCKY 82 In Baton Rouge, La., Johnny O’Bryant III had 29 points and nine rebounds, and LSU led wire-to-wire.

Jordan Mickey scored 14 points and blocked five shots for LSU (13-6, 4-3 SEC), which blocked 11 shots and helped force 13 Kentucky turnovers. Shavon Coleman added 14 points for the Tigers, who outshot the Wildcats 51 percent (32 of 63) to 44 percent (32 of 73). NO. 20 CREIGHTON 63, ST. JOHN’S 60 In Omaha, Neb., Doug McDermott hit a 25-footer with 2.5 seconds left to finish his season-high 39-point night for Creighton, which squandered all of an 18-point lead. The Red Storm had just tied the game on Rysheed Jordan’s two free throws before McDermott took a pass from Jahenns Manigat on the left wing and got off his winning shot as Chris Obekpa tried to get a hand in his face. Phil Greene IV’s desperation 3-point try at the buzzer didn’t even touch the net. D’Angelo Harrison scored 13 of his 15 points in the second half to lead St. John’s. Obekpa and Jordan had 11 apiece and JaKarr Sampson added 10. Winning for the 13th time in 14 games, the Bluejays (18-3, 8-1) stayed in first place in the Big East. St. John’s (12-9, 2-6), playing in Omaha for the first time since 1966, had its three-game winning streak end. Jordan made two free throws with 11.1 seconds left to set up McDermott’s dramatic shot. McDermott scored 10 points during a 17-1 spurt that bumped the Bluejays’ lead to 46-28. The lead grew to 18 points before

the Red Storm went on runs of 11-2 and 12-2. WOMEN NO. 1 CONNECTICUT 93, TEMPLE 56 In Philadelphia, Breanna Stewart scored a career-high 37 points, and Bria Hartley had 16 points and 11 assists, leading No. 1 Connecticut to its 28th straight win. The Huskies (22-0, 9-0 American Athletic Conference) shook off a rare early challenge to turn yet another game into a romp. Stewart made 10 of 11 shots in the first half and scored 25 points to thwart any hope the Owls had for pulling off the upset. UConn center Stefanie Dolson had 11 points and 13 rebounds when she limped off the court with 8 minutes left. She had her right foot taped and did not return. NO. 5 LOUISVILLE 80, RUTGERS 71 In Piscataway, N.J., Shoni Schimmel scored 24 points, Asia Taylor added 19, and Louisville extended its winning streak to 14 games. Louisville (21-1, 9-0 American Athletic Conference) trailed 48-42 in the second half before Schimmel and Sara Hammond took over. Schimmel’s 3-pointer started a 22-9 run over the next 8 minutes. Hammond followed with eight straight points, hitting a 3-pointer from the wing and then a three-point play. Schimmel’s 3-pointer from the corner made it 64-57.

An interesting blend of old-world charm and modern marvels in southern Sweden. Travel, C-2

By Tantri Wija

For The New Mexican


he Super Bowl fast approaches, that day when all of America gets together to eat nachos and watch two teams they spent most of the year rooting against battle it out for the Lombardi Trophy. For some of us whose beloved team took an inexplicable dive against the Denver Broncos in the AFC championship game, the Super Bowl is just a good day to stuff our faces with potato skins at somebody else’s party while glaring at the screen with narrowed eyes. But the day before Super Bowl XLVIII, another event takes place, an event just as competitive but far more delicious and that does not involve the Seattle Seahawks: Souper Bowl XX. Pun intended. More than a food competition, and more than a tasting party, the Souper Bowl, which takes place Saturday at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center, is a rowdy gladiatorial battle with soup as the medium and bragging rights as the ultimate prize. For $30 in advance ($35 at the door and $10 for kids), you can come in and sample every soup in the room, and then cast your vote for the best soups in a number of categories, as well as overall best soup. Every penny goes to a good cause. “One hundred percent of proceeds benefit The Food Depot, the food bank for Northern New Mexico,” Food Depot Director Sherry Hooper said. “We have an increasing number of people seeking help, due to cuts to SNAP [Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program — food stamps]. New Mexico is ranked top when it comes to hunger and poverty, so there’s such a great need for support.” Unlike many food competitions, which are largely spectator events where culinary professionals make all the judgment calls, Souper Bowl soups are actually judged by the guests, who are urged to take their responsibilities as seriously as the NFL’s referees (not the replacement refs; no one wants people flinging hot soup angrily at each other). Only the organizers know the soups ahead of time. Everyone else finds out what will be offered when they arrive at the event. Restaurants will participate in one of the following categories: Best Cream Soup, Best Savory Soup, Best Seafood Soup and Best Vegetarian Soup. The chefs are assigned their categories randomly, which “adds a little spice to the competition,” Hooper said. “It’s our third year doing that. It challenges them a little more.” But don’t worry, you won’t be blindsided by dietary restrictions and allergies. “This year, we’ve asked them to be really specific about their soups — gluten-free, vegan — so we’ll be able to provide that information to our guests when they arrive,” she said. “There’s something for everybody.” This year, more than 25 restaurants will participate, including Raaga, Agave Lounge, Del Charro, Terra at the Four Seasons Rancho Encantado, the Palace Restaurant & Saloon, Blue Corn Brewery and Dinner for Two, among many others, all of which will be serving up distinctive and different concoctions. You, the guest, vote for a soup by put-

ting a slip of paper in the soup’s ballot box. Helpful Boy Scouts, chosen perhaps for their childlike integrity, run back and forth with boxes of votes, which are counted and recounted in a backroom. True to the Super Bowl spirit, every time a soup gets seven votes, it receives a “touchdown” and a wee whimsical paper football is pinned up to the scoreboard so everyone can watch the competition unfold in real time. The soups are hot, the competition is fierce, and the atmosphere is raucous. “We’ve eliminated bands and music because you can’t hear those things in the ballroom, there’s so much activity,” Hooper said. “It’s a true community event — neighbors, friends, businesses, they all run into each other at this event, so it’s a good opportunity to catch up with people.” As those little footballs go up on the board, the event’s hosts, radio personalities Ira Gordon and Mary Charlotte Domandi, will call out the frontrunners for most of the categories, although the Best Soup vote will stay a secret until the very end. This year, the Souper Bowl turns 20 — a meaningful milestone, especially considering that the event “began with five restaurants in a tent in the parking lot of Wild Oats Market,” Hooper said. Roughly 1,400 people attended last year’s event, raising about $60,000 for The Food Depot. So while many of us will be spending this weekend eating our feelings, at least at the Souper Bowl, we can do it for a good cause.

Two dishes to liven up your Super Bowl spread A seriously intense meatball By Elizabeth Karmel The Associated Press

Supposedly, we all have our dirty little food secrets, those crazy things we’re embarrassed to admit we love. But the truth is, I don’t consider any of my loves to be secrets. If I love something, I am proud to eat it, no matter how trashy or elegant it is. If I were ashamed to eat it, I wouldn’t eat it! Which is why in this day of aspirational organic, local, vegan, sustainable, nose-to-tail eating, I think a little honesty about what tastes good and satisfies the soul is important. And that’s why I’m sharing my No. 1 pick for great Super Bowl party food, a trashy, delicious little recipe for sausage meatballs I got from my Aunt Mert. I made them twice this Thanksgiving, and I served them right alongside smoked salmon and caviar. The sausage balls were scarfed up while the more sophisticated offerings were ignored. The simplest southern sausage meatball recipe is three ingredients — bulk hot breakfast sausage, cheddar cheese and Bisquick. If you don’t like spicy foods, leave out the cayenne, but it helps to balance the richness of the meatballs. Use the sharpest cheddar you can find and grate it yourself. If you prefer Italian flavors, you can use bulk hot Italian sausage and substitute ½ cup of grated Parmesan or Romano cheese for ¼ pound of the cheddar. SPICY SAUSAGE MEATBALLS You can prep this recipe in advance. Follow through the step of forming the meat mixture into balls, then arrange them on a baking sheet

and freeze. Once frozen, store in plastic bags. Cook frozen meatballs as directed, but increase oven time to 35 minutes. Total time: 40 minutes (15 minutes active), makes 36 meatballs 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon melted butter 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or granulated garlic 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 pound grated sharp cheddar cheese 1 pound loose spicy sausage meat 2 eggs Preparation: Heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, butter, garlic and cayenne. Set aside. In a second large bowl, use your hands to mix together the cheese, sausage and eggs until well combined. Add the flour mixture and mix for several minutes to ensure all ingredients are evenly distributed. Pinch off about ¼ cup of the mixture and roll into 1½-inch meatballs. Arrange the meatballs on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes. Serve hot.

Seven-layer dip with a twist By Alison Ladman The Associated Press

Everybody seems enraptured by seven-layer dip. And not that it’s bad, but it’s been done. And done again. And again. So for this year’s Super Bowl party, why not freshen it up a bit? Take the same concept of shoveling piles of delicious toppings into your mouth, but instead of chips, use a slab of roasted potato. SEVEN-LAYER POTATO SKINS Total time: 45 minutes (15 minutes active), makes 16 servings 8 medium potatoes 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided 2 large yellow onions, diced Salt and ground black pepper 8 ounces loose sausage meat, cooked and crumbled 1/2 cup sour cream 2 cloves garlic, minced 8 slices cooked bacon, crumbled 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese 2 scallions, sliced Preparation: Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, then coat with cooking spray. Poke the potatoes all over with a fork. Microwave on high until tender, 10 to 12 minutes depending on the wattage of your microwave. Allow to cool until easily handled. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet over medium, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the onions and cook until softened and browned, 15 to 18 minutes.

Take the same concept of a seven-layer dip, but instead of chips use a slab of roasted potato.

When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them in half. Scoop out and reserve the insides, leaving a ¼-inch-thick wall of potato flesh on the skin. Arrange the halves skin sides down on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the potatoes with the remaining tablespoon of oil. Sprinkle lightly with salt and black pepper, then bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until crisped and browned. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl stir together the reserved potato flesh and the sausage. Season with salt and pepper, if needed. In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream and garlic. Set aside. Once the potato skins have baked, start layering them. Spoon a bit of the caramelized onions into the bottom of each shell. Top with the sausage-potato mixture. This should mostly fill the shell. Sprinkle crumbled bacon over the potatoes, followed by cheese. Bake for another 10 minutes. Top with a dollop of the garlic sour cream and sprinkle with the scallions. Serve immediately.

Southern Sweden, land of contrasts


Story and photos by Wayne Lee For The New Mexican


kåne, the southernmost county in Sweden, is truly a land of contrasts. As I sauntered along the bustling waterfront of Malmö, the largest city in Skåne and third-largest in Sweden, I was struck by the juxtaposition of storied, medieval landmarks and sleek, urban architecture. At 300,000-plus inhabitants — and growing rapidly — Malmö seems to be a city that is at peace with its medieval past and its high-rise future. The same could be said for the entire 4,224 square miles of the province, its ubiquitous family farms and yellow-flowering rapeseed fields dotted with wind turbines and criss-crossed by high-speed rail lines. As I explored the towns and streets of the land named Scania by the Romans, I was at once impressed with the area’s progressiveness and immersed in its conflicted history. The first recorded mention of Scania dates from the 9th century. Danish king Harald Bluetooth conquered the coast in the middle of the 10th century, and the Danes continued to rule the region until 1658. The Treaty of Copenhagen transferred Scania to Swedish control in 1660, but the Danish-speaking locals resisted Swedish rule, and the Danes continued trying to take it back, invading the province as late as 1710. These days, the Danes have a much easier time crossing the 7 miles of water that separate Denmark and Sweden, thanks to the Øresund Bridge. The double-decker span, which opened in 2000, is the longest combined dualpurpose bridge in Europe, connecting the road and rail networks of Scandinavia with those of Northern and Western Europe. While I admired Malmö’s newest structures, especially the iconic, gravity-defying “Turning Torso” tower (Sweden’s tallest building), I was in town to discover its more ancient charms. First and foremost among those was Malmöhus, built as a minor citadel in 1434, then rebuilt as a fortress in the 1530s. Today, the red-brick castle houses Sweden’s largest museum, with displays in claustrophobia-inducing nooks and passages the sometimes-gruesome history of imprisonments, torture and public beheadings. Speaking of dark — fans of author Henning

4 Lund Cathedral seen through Carmen Izquierdo’s Domkyrkoforum bronzed box.

Since 1103, Finn the Giant has been holding up one pillar of the Lund Cathedral.

Mankell can tour all the noteworthy locations mentioned in his enormously popular murder mysteries. Just down the street from the castle, the Science and Maritime House offers nerdfriendly exhibitions of steam engines, vintage cars, Scanian inventions, astronomy (honoring favorite son Tycho Brahe) and even a World War II-era submarine.

Speaking of mockups, Lund also boasts Skissernas Museum, the world’s only collection consisting entirely of models, sketches and proposals for public art projects. One could easily spend a whole day examining the thousands of drawings, paintings and sculptures by Sweden’s leading artists, along with international figures such as Matisse, Henry Moore, Diego Rivera and Christo.



A few miles north of Malmö lies the storied, 10th-century city of Lund, which was plundered and burned in 940 by the Vikings. At the heart of this photogenic town is the Romanesque Domkyrken. Built in 1103, the imposing cathedral features five pipe organs, huge stained glass windows, an ancient astronomical clock and a spooky crypt (including the sculpted Finn the Giant hugging the base of a pillar). Just across the square, architect Carmen Izquierdo’s controversial Domkyrkoforum visitor center houses an auditorium, café, exhibit space and a bold, bronzed box window that stares like a gigantic eye up at the cathedral’s twin 180-foot spires. The city of 43,000 hosts 47,000 students at Lund University, founded in 1666. Bordering the campus, and within an easy walk along the city’s cobblestone streets, are many extant examples of 17th- and 18th-century half-timbered homes and buildings, along with several fine historical museums, the bishop’s house and botanical garden, and the open-air Kulturen museum with mockup examples of Scanian housing types.

I also drove south to Trelleborg, at the southernmost tip of the peninsula. From its founding in 1257, the seaport played an important role in the region’s herring trade. That history is displayed in the town’s superb Municipal Museum, along with multimedia displays showcasing Trelleborg’s once-thriving glass, printing ink and rubber tire industries. The skyline is dominated by the 190-foottall Old Water Tower. In its shadows, one can toss coins into the Serpent Fountain, whose centerpiece is a bronze sea serpent molesting a prostrate maiden. Very Nordic. Nearby attractions include the town’s 13th-century church and a fine example of a Viking ring fortress. Fishing boats are still moored to the town docks, but the waterfront is now far busier as Sweden’s second-biggest commercial maritime port, as well as a terminus for ferries from several cities in Germany. Most Scanians speak passable English and they are friendly and welcoming, so whether you go by plane, train, car or boat, you might consider your own private invasion of this historic land.

Southwest Airlines to fly to Caribbean By David Koenig

DALLAS — Southwest Airlines Co. is expanding beyond the continental United States with flights to the Caribbean beginning July 1. The airline began selling tickets on Monday for flights to Aruba, the Bahamas and Jamaica from Atlanta, Baltimore and Orlando, Fla. Those routes are currently flown by AirTran Airways, which Southwest bought in 2011. Southwest carries more passengers in the United States than any airline, but among the largest U.S. carriers, it alone doesn’t fly beyond the nation’s borders. Southwest has been talking about going international for years, but it’s been held back by technological limits to its reservations system, which it has been upgrading. Later this year, Southwest is expected to take over four AirTran destinations in Mexico and the Dominican Republic. It eventually plans to add international flights from Houston, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and possibly other U.S. cities, but executives said that they probably won’t announce details about those routes until 2015 or later. AirTran’s international flights account for less than 1 percent of the parent company’s passenger-carrying capacity, and that won’t change with Monday’s announcement about some flights switching from AirTran planes to Southwest ones. Chief commercial officer Bob Jordan said, however, that international flying is “a big part of our growth strategy” and could someday involve 70 to 80 Southwest aircraft. Dallas-based Southwest plans to phase out the AirTran brand by year end. Shares of Southwest slipped 13 cents to $20.70 in afternoon trading. Most other airline stocks also were lower on a rise in oil prices.
