Some Clippings From My Newsroom Floor as We Ring Out the Old And Ring In The New

Let's ring out 2009 with some clippings from our newsroom floor--tidbits that got lost in the shuffle as we blogged our way through another year of New Mexico politics.

We all know that RJ Berry became mayor of ABQ by consolidating the city's Republican vote under his tent. But Berry consultant Jay McCleskey says R's not only supported Berry, they came out in larger numbers than in the 2005 mayoral derby:

One key to this turnout turnaround was the absentee voting swing from 2005 to 2009. Importantly, many of these Republicans who voted absentee had not cast ballots in the previous mayoral election. This boosted the Republican share of the overall electorate and led to Republicans outperforming their registration numbers by almost 10%.

Thirty-two percent of the city's electorate is Republican, but McCleskey said they made up 41.3 percent of the electorate in the October election that gave ABQ its first GOP mayor in nearly 25 years. In 2005, GOP mayoral turnout was 38.5 percent.

TRANSITIONS

From Rio Rancho

Gayland Bryant is calling it a career. The Corrales resident will be retiring as the Sandoval County director of public affairs on Dec. 31. “It’s really been a pleasure and challenge,” he said. “I’ve had the opportunity to work for and serve the people in what has been one of the fastest growing counties (in the nation) for a number of years.”

INTERESTING RACE

It's a three way race so far for the Democratic nomination to replace Alan Armijo on the Bernalillo County Commission. Businessman Dan Serrano tells us he is off and running. Former NM cabinet secretary Michelle Lujan Grisham has also announced a bid as has retired ABQ city planner Loretta Naranjo Lopez. She challenged Armijo unsuccessfully four years ago. Serrano has made several stabs at elective office. Lujan Grisham sought the ABQ congressional seat in 2008. The Armijo district is heavy Dem. Whoever wins the nomination in June can be expected to take the prize in November.

ALEX ABEYTA, JR. IS DEAD

Alex Abeyta, Jr., a veteran New Mexico power player, is dead at the age of 76. Abeyta served as Bernalillo County manager for nine years during 1979 to '91. He was also elected Bernalillo County Treasurer to a four year term in 2001. He was also in the restaurant business for many years. Alex had a bad back and in his later years was confined to a wheelchair. His spirits remained high. His last job was as a disability liaison to the NM Dept. of Transportation for the Governor's Commission on Disability.

THEY SAID IT


From NM columnist Sherry Robinson:

If you've ever spent $40 to send $10 worth of chile and pinto beans to a loved one overseas, you must be a New Mexican.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

Thanks for stopping by here in 2009. We invite you to join us in the new year. It should be fun. We'll elect a new governor, the three NM US Reps will face their first re-election bids and there will surely be some surprises in the campaigns for the 70 state House seats.

Thanks as well to our advertisers for their continued interest and support. They make possible our continued exploration of our beloved La Politica.

Happy New Year, New Mexico!

Only a momentary lapse in kavannah.

Here's what one visitor to a London synagogue in 1820 experienced:

Getting Ethics Right: A Milquetoast Commission Or One With Teeth?, Plus: 2009 Slowly Recedes, And: Our Bottom Lines

Critics have pounced on the Legislature's latest effort to police itself, calling an interim committee's proposed ethics commission an over engineered scheme resembling a Rube Goldberg contraption that will end up being a toothless sham. Their main complaint is the composition of the commission. Eight of the eleven members would be legislators. The Guv would appoint the remaining three members. What would it take to have a really independent ethics panel? A reader with a long background in ethics enforcement and elections comes with this:

Joe, I read the proposed bill and was struck by the same thing you mentioned-- the appointment process. All you have to do is see how the Federal Election Commission has turned into a partisan and toothless entity because of the so-called bipartisan appointment process. What happens is that each party protects their own from any penalties.

What New Mexico needs is along the lines of the
Wisconsin Governmental Accountability Board. That state's Court of Appeals appoints retired judges to the board and these appointees are prohibited from engaging in any political activity. The Board has supervision of ethics and elections as well as some review over state contracts.

I think that those who have endorsed the proposed commission here don't believe they can get anything tough passed and signed by the Governor...The rationale is that something is better than nothing, but I don't really see the composition of this commission as serious...

So what will come out of the January legislative session? A milquetoast commission? A strong Wisconsin type panel? Or nothing? Don't bet a lot of money against the third option.

WHO PAYS?


Now that it appears Congress is about to pass a health care reform bill, supportive lawmakers have started their spin patrol. ABQ Dem US Rep. Martin Heinrich came with a twist in a recent newsletter to quiet concerns over the cost of the measure. He said the costs are fully covered:

Half through eliminating waste, fraud and abuse and half through a surcharge on the income of the top 0.3 percent of the wealthiest individuals...which includes 590 households in our district and excludes 99.81 percent of our residents...

You mean all those folks concerned that their Medicare is going to be slashed to pay for the reform have nothing to fear? Look to hear more about that in the 2010 campaign.

NEWS OF NOTE

Veteran NM political reporter John Robertson, now a longtime politics editor for the ABQ Journal, emerges at year's end to pen a remembrance of the big loss of 2009--the death of Bruce King.

And does ABQ Mayor RJ Berry really have any other choice but to sue to overturn a last minute deal that has former Chief Administrative Officer Ed Adams eligible to stay with the city at his $147,000 yearly pay no matter what job he holds? It may take time, but we have plenty of city attorneys on the payroll to game this one out. Ed cut his sweetheart deal with his boss--Mayor Marty Chavez--but Berry seems hesitant to challenge the bizarre contract. He needn't be. An economically suffering public will be with him all the way.

IN MY TIME

New Mexico counts down the end of another year and decade this week, but it is done here with a spirit of nonchalance.

Whether you live in Albuquerque or Animas, your life here is much more in tune with nature's timing, rather than the man made calender--even if your hectic days anchor you closely to that clock on the wall. The spectacular mountains that accompany you everywhere and the early winter, orange-splattered sunsets spanning an endless horizon are constant reminders of eons past and eons to come. You belong, but only as a privileged visitor.

The natural magnificence that is New Mexico does not obviate life's hardships or the need for politics, but through the years it comforts and nourishes, as it will the stream of generations to follow.

THE BOTTOM LINES

We referenced a water dispute on the state's East side Tuesday as "obscure" but one reader took umbrage over that characterization and came with this:

In New Mexico there is nothing obscure about fights over water. The biggest and longest runnin' fights in New Mexico have all been over water. Remember "whiskey is for drinking and water is for fightin'!


Okay, but please refrain from doing so while driving.

The Berry Patch: Walking Down The Middle (So Far), Plus: Another Speeding R, And: Wading Into Water Law (Again)

Mayor Berry
He's only been in a month, but early signs indicate that new ABQ GOP Mayor RJ Berry is going to resist the temptation to try to steer this middle of the road city down a right-wing path. His campaign rhetoric over ABQ being a "sanctuary city" has been toned down and any attempt at changing law enforcement policy toward undocumented residents has been put on the back burner. He says he will study the controversial red light camera program, not move to eliminate it. Also, he will not immediately swing a bloody axe by pushing for layoffs in the city work force and he will have a Democrat or two at his elbow, i.e., chief administrative officer David Campbell.

All of this has not gone unnoticed by R's who want a sterner and more conservative Berry. There has been some post-holiday buzz among Republicans over the new GOP mayor's absence from the big Bernalillo County GOP Christmas party. We're told some 150 attended, but not Berry or any of his top Republican aides like Public Safety director Darren White or constituent services head Tito Madrid.

Was Berry sending a message? Maybe. After all, three Republican city councilors were the only ones to vote against his nomination of Campbell as CAO. Or perhaps Berry is just generally wary of being too tightly embraced by the GOP in a city where Democratic registration is 48 percent and the GOP commands only 32 percent. It doesn't take long for that math to have an impact as you weigh the future from the lofty heights of the 11th floor of City Hall.

A SPEEDING CAUCUS?


NM GOP state senators have a good start on forming a "Speeding Caucus." First it was Roswell Senator "Lightning" Rod Adair getting busted this summer for clocking 118 MPH in a 65 mph zone in Guadalupe County. Now, Senate Minority Leader Stuart Ingle joins the club, according to a Senor Alligator. They report that Ingle was ticketed recently for going 59 mph in a 50 mph zone near the ghost town of Yeso west of Fort Sumner on the state's East side. In years past, the speeding caucus would have included Big Bill whose drivers regularly had heavy feet on the accelerator. But he hasn't had any speeding incidents of late. Maybe that's because he's been spending more time boating.

HE'S GONE--FOR NOW

Former Dem NM State Rep. Bob Perls emails us from bucolic Corrales:

...I will be leaving for DC to join the Department of State as a diplomat. I have accepted an appointment to the US Foreign Service...I will find out in January at which US Embassy I will serve. I served as state representative from 1993-1997 representing southern Sandoval County. I sold my medical technology company in 2008 and have been working on a Masters in Public Administration at UNM...I would hope to come back to New Mexico with newfound skills (and) provide innovative and ethical leadership for our state...

Sounds like fun, Bob. We've been looking into the French Foreign Legion ourselves, or maybe just a long weekend in Chama.

LET'S GET WET
John D'Antonio
We waded into a water controversy over Tucumcari way when we posted Catherine Bugg's complaints over farmers, ranchers and other members of the Arch Hurley Conservancy Disrict not getting what they consider their full allotment of water from Conchas Lake, despite what Catherine said was a large snow pack. State Engineer John D'Antonio read what bugged Bugg and sent this in:

As an avid reader of your blog, I wanted to address Ms. Bugg’s concerns...Most of the surface water rights upstream of the Arch Hurley project are senior water rights that date back to the mid to late 1800’s, whereas Arch Hurley’s water rights only date back to 1938 and therefore are considered junior rights. We have investigated the alleged illegal diversions and have found all diversions are legal with valid senior rights. The claims of 250% snow pack is something that has not happened anywhere in New Mexico in recent memory.

We have been discussing a metering program for the Mora River and its tributaries that would allow future water use to be verified on a real-time basis to eliminate potential upstream over-diversions. Our goal is to have all of New Mexico’s water usage measured and metered in order to protect priority water rights and correctly administer water, especially during times of short supply.


Thanks, John and Catherine. You've reminded us why we're an aficionado of the deliciously obscure disputes that dot the landscape of La Politica.

Santa Gave, But Does The Taxman Take Some Away? Plus: Gov't Growth: Mostly Bloat Or Not? Also: Getting It Or Not In Old Santa Fe

All 70 state House seats are up for election in 2010, voters in several New Mexico locales recently rejected bond issues and the economy is still flat on its back. Given that backdrop, we're not shocked to hear increasing reluctance from legislators when it comes to tax increases. This is in spite of a gargantuan state deficit that needs to be closed and estimated to be $600 million for the budget year that starts next July 1 and perhaps much more.

A proposal to reinstate the gross receipts tax on food purchases is being greeted with withering criticism as it would hurt low income and unemployed New Mexicans the most. Also, a vote for it could easily be transformed into a hot button campaign issue. House Dems in particular are treading carefully, knowing that primary challenges in this volatile environment can sprout as quickly as dandelions.

That doesn't mean lawmakers will completely skirt "revenue enhancement." There is a sense among veteran political analysts that the myriad of tax credits that are on the books and that cost the state hundreds of millions annually may be the most likely target for revenue raising. Backers of the generous film industry tax credit are especially tense as lawmakers search for revenue options that don't incite the voters or their potential opponents.

TAX RATES AND THE RICH

Big Bill would probably veto any increase in personal income tax rates, but his 2003 tax cuts for the wealthiest New Mexicans are coming under intense scrutiny because of the pronounced inequality between rich and poor households that arose this past decade. From the AP:

New Mexicans with the most money--the top 1 percent of taxpayers, who earn $395,000 or more--paid about 5 percent of their income in state and local taxes in 2007. That compares with almost 11 percent for those in the lowest income group...

But the ABQ Chamber of Commerce remains insistent that the Richardson 2003 tax cuts for the rich should stay. A spokeswoman:

The changes that were made in the income tax are part of a bigger plan to create an environment in New Mexico which brings high-wage jobs to the state for people who live here...As we make decisions about the budget, we ought to do that very carefully or we will roll back any possible progress that we can make to create high-wage jobs here when this economy turns around..

The problem for the Chamber and others continuing to advocate for these historically low tax rates for the rich is that there is no proof that they have spurred the creation of any of those promised high paying jobs and we've had the low rates for six years.

CAP CAPITAL GAINS?

While we're on the subject, lawmakers might also want to finally look at the very generous treatment of capital gains--sales of stocks and bonds and other assets--in NM. From The Institute on Tax and Economic Policy:

New Mexico is one just nine state offering a significant tax break for capital gains income. The state allows an exclusion equal to the greater of $1,000 or 50 percent of net capital gains income. This tax break costs the state as much as $51 million in 2008; repeating it would help ease New Mexico's budget woes, make its tax system fair, and keep valuable dollars in the state economy.

In casual conversation with a wide range of acquaintances, it is clear that there is populism in the air. But in Washington it appears to be drowning in a cascade of special interest influence. Wall Street remains in pleasure while Main Street remains in pain. In New Mexico, the same resistance to this populism---a reaction to a decade of economic imbalance--also is being manifested. But if state lawmakers are looking for tax hikes that would actually enlist popular approval, they may want to consider the tax brackets on the state's upper crust and the generous treatment of profits generated from stock and bond sales.

THE RICHARDSON 59 (Cont.)

One of the questions readers raise about The Richardson 59--the list of the Guv's political appointees being let go--is how the dismissals help the state balance its budget. That's the stated goal of the Legislature in ordering the reduction in "exempt" employees. For example, readers are asking whether some of the appointees let go at Workforce Solutions were paid with federal funds. If they were, they say that doesn't help balance our state budget. And they ask the same about politicals being let go in January from NM Expo. The budget there is largely generated by the state fair and other income, not from general fund. We don't have a firm answers off hand, but we hope to get some.

HOW MUCH BLOAT?

Blog reader Nat Chakeres weighs in on a recent post here quoting defenders of the 50 percent increase in state spending that has happened under Big Bill since 2003. They argued that a portion of the increase was because of a lack of government spending prior to his term. Nat agrees, and adds:

...One thing that is being overlooked is the state's growth during that time period. A bigger population and a bigger economy require more government spending for services and regulatory oversight. According to UNM's Bureau of Business and Economic Research, New Mexico's economy grew, accounting for inflation, by 39% between 2003 and 2008. That puts the 50% growth in the state budget into some perspective.

Whatever the appropriate rate of spending during the Great Bull Market, the Great Recession has ended the debate. Cutbacks--painful ones--are inevitable.

GOP Guv candidate Susana Martinez isn't one of those buying into the argument outlined above:

Whether it’s rewarding political cronies with ‘soft landings’ or using taxpayer dollars for political activities, Diane Denish and this administration have grown state government by more than 50% and in the process, abused the public trust. As governor, I will end the giveaways and favors, eliminate programs that don’t work, and restore sanity to the budgetary process...


But exactly what programs would Martinez and the other R's eliminate to save hundreds of millions of dollars? They have yet to say. And it is essential to the debate to note that just about every Republican in Santa Fe voted for the growth in the state budget since 2003. Does Martinez also see them as having "abused the public trust?"

DOES HE GET IT OR NOT?
Simon
We recently blogged that Santa Fe City Council candidate Russell Simon, 27, seemed to get it that recession ravaged Santa Fe needs a vigorous discussion of its future economic options in the upcoming March city election. But Simon's call for Santa Fe to have its own electric utility, replacing PNM, drew fire from reader Gary in Taos:

I'm not sure Simon from Santa Fe does get it. Santa Fe needs a diverse economy, one that does not rely so heavily on tourism and the service industry, and certainly one that does not rely on utilities for income. Santa Fe needs new business and new jobs that are less service and retail oriented. This is a terrible idea. So when Santa Fe needs more income they can simply raise electric rates? I suspect as an environmentalist, Simon has other reasons to get his hands on PNM's electric business in Santa Fe.

We did not note Simon's proposal to have the city of Santa Fe take over PNM in our original blog. Like Gary in Taos, it could give many Santa Fe voters reason to pause.

Simon is trying to unseat incumbent Councilor Chris Calvert who also faces a challenge from state tax processor Doug Nava. Here are the other Santa Fe council and mayor candidates.

Is one's Da'as Torah diluted or enhanced by youthful ventures into the thought of Kant?

Time for an old-style On the Main Line Artscroll post.

I was rereading Artscroll's adaptation of Ohr Elchonon, the biography of R. Elchanan Wasserman. This, from the intro, jumped out at me. Penned by Rs. Meir Zlotowitz and Nosson Scherman (1982):



I actually remembered the following footnote from the last time I read this book, which was in high school. It was even more interesting than I remembered:




Note, this shows that the influence of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason on R. Elchanan's thinking is a clear possibility. By the way, Kant advocated a severe reform of Judaism, including the abolition of most mitzvos as a prerequisite for granting Jews civil rights. I suppose this may be construed as some evidence that R. Elchanan was of the opinion that one may accept the good and discard the bad of thinkers. Secondly, he read the newspaper in the beis midrash?!

I see I was preceded in the second part of this post by two years (link).

As long as it's not Handel's Messiah, right?

Here's an interesting notice from the Annual Register of 1766 about the dedication of the newly built Duke's Place Synagogue in London.



The chief Rabbi who pronounced the benediction in English was none other than Rabbi David Tevele Schiff, who was in fact the rebbe of Rabbi Nosson Adler (the Chasam Sofer's rebbe, link).

It will be remembered that R. Yaakov Emden's son R. Meshullam Zalman was his rival claimant to the position of chief Rabbi of the Ashkenazim (which was informal then anyway). They were cousins. (See here.)

What the Chida said about 11 year old Rabbi Nosson Adler's lateness in schule.

The Adler paper (see below) mentions the following amusing anecdote about what the Chida said about the youthful Rabbi Nathan Adler (1742-1800):



Although he does not mention it, his source is from the introduction to משנת רבי נתן, published in 1862 by B.H. Auerbach:



Auerbach's father was a student of Rabbi Adler, so one presumes he heard it from him.

A really odd Godol story about Rabbi Nathan Marcus Adler, Moses Montefiore, and Queen Victoria.

First a short version from a book called Yiddishe Mamas: The Truth About the Jewish Mother Marnie Winston-Macauley (note: if you're wondering about the strange formatting of this image, yes, something is missing from the image below. If you're a When Harry Met Sally fan you may find it in the book linked to, but it is irrelevant to this post):



No source is given for this interesting tale, but I suspect that it is from chapter 6 of an Artscroll book called Chance Encounters? Stories that are Hardly by Chance by Mrs. M. L. Mashinsky. I reproduce it in its entirety below:
Queen Victoria and the Rabbi

VICTORIA, QUEEN OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE, HAD good reason to be grateful to Nathan Adler, who was rabbi of a shul in Hanau (Hanover), where the queen had come to visit. Her husband, Prince Consort Albert, was from the duchy of Saxe Coburg Gotha, and her own ancestors had originated in Hanover. The royal couple had arrived there for a vacation before the expected birth of their first child, when suddenly, labor began two months earlier than expected.

The great Jewish shtadlan, Moshe Montefiore, a financial advisor to the British government, came to the Court at Hanover at that crucial moment. The doctors and members of the Court were at their wit’s end -- if the child would be born on German soil, his succession to the throne might be in question, since he would be considered a German citizen and would not be eligible for the crown.

That afternoon, Moshe Montefiore went to daven in the shul of Rav Nathan Adler, and received a tremendous welcome -- not because of his great wealth, but because of his great benevolence to his Jewish brethren all over the world. After prayers, he told Rav Adler about the royal dilemma. It was getting late ....

Rav Adler suggested that the Queen be brought immediately to an English ship, which should then travel out three kilometers from the German shore to international waters. A child born on the British ship would be regarded as having been born on English soil.

Sir Moses quickly relayed this advice to the Court, and Queen Victoria was rushed to the famous British warship, the Arc Royal, which was nearby. That night, she gave birth to a son. He duly became known later (much later, since the Queen ruled until her death at the venerable age of 82) as King Edward VII.

A sticky situation was averted by the ingenious rabbi of Hanover, and the Queen did not forget that.

During her long reign, England’s glory was at its greatest. “The sun never sets on the British Empire” was truly said, since it shone constantly on some part of England and its possessions -- Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, the African colonies ....

Years later, Queen Victoria’s attention was directed to an announcement issued by the Dukes Place shul in London, requesting applications to be submitted for the prestigious position of rabbi there. This was publicized internationally, and many renowned rabbanim applied, including Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch and others.

The Queen sent a note to the synagogue, stating, “Since Rabbi Adler saved me when I was in trouble, he will certainly be the right guardian and leader for your congregation.” And so it was.

When the Queen’s advice was accepted and Rav Nathan Adler was chosen as the rabbi of the Dukes Place shul, she further suggested that this position was not enough -- he should become Chief Rabbi of England, or better yet, of the British Empire! A bill was raised in Parliament in order to decide whether the Empire required a chief rabbi. When put to a vote, a substantial majority chose Rav Adler as Chief Rabbi of the British Empire, a post he filled with honor and distinction for 45 years.

Thus Queen Victoria repaid the good advice of the rabbi of Hanau. Her reign was an era of good feeling toward her Jewish subjects, who prospered and enjoyed more rights and freedom than any of their brethren in the European countries.

P.S. Sir Moses Montefiore, who had received the suggestion and passed it on to the Court, was a proud Jew, completely devoted to the A-mighty and to His people. He earned the respect of gentiles and the gratitude and love of Jews everywhere by his words and deeds, based on the Torah. How different from so many politicians who feel they can succeed only by blending with the mainstream! How good it would be if those who represent Jewry today would follow the example of the man about whom it was said at the time, “From Moses to Moses there was no one like Moses.”

(From “THE ADLER FAMILY -- ITS GENEALOGY; WITH SOME REMINISCES”)

Paper read by Mr. Marcus N. Adler, at the Jewish Institute in London, on the 6th of June, 1909, on the occasion of the Jubilee of the Chief Rabbi. Reprinted from the JEWISH CHRONICLE.

“The story of Rabbi N. Adler and the Queen has been circulating in the Adler family but I also heard it from Rabbi Moishe Schneider zt”l during one of his mussar schmuessen long before I joined the family,” writes HaRav Yitzchak Kaufman of B’nei Brak, who is married to a descendant of Rav Nathan Adler. He concludes, “Today, in B’nei Brak alone, there are over 300 yungeleit, descendants of the family, learning in local kollelim and yeshivos. The patriarch of the family did a favor for the Queen, resulting in his emigration from Germany to England, where he founded generations of Torah-true descendants devoted to a life of Torah and avodas Hashem.”
Luckily this gives its source, namely "(From “THE ADLER FAMILY -- ITS GENEALOGY; WITH SOME REMINISCES”) described as "Paper read by Mr. Marcus N. Adler, at the Jewish Institute in London, on the 6th of June, 1909, on the occasion of the Jubilee of the Chief Rabbi. Reprinted from the JEWISH CHRONICLE."

As it turns out, The Adler Family - It's Genealogy with Some Reminisces is available to read or download. Now, I was expecting some variation of this story to appear in it, but although there is a section on Montefiore, nothing even remotely like this story appears. I figured I'd better look up the paper in the Jewish Chronicle, since this pamphlet was reprinted from that newspaper. Sure enough, the entire speech is printed in the June 11, 1909 issue, but it is identical to the pamphlet, which you can read yourself quite easily. So what gives?

Now, the story is strange for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that there seems to be no record or hint that Edward was born on a British ship. In fact, his page on Wikipedia says that he was born at Buckingham Palace. Furthermore, he wasn't Victoria's eldest, but her second child. It is entirely possible that some sort of Adler family legend to this effect existed, but it surely wasn't mentioned by his son Marcus Nathan (who does mention family lore that they are descended from the compiler of Yalkut Shim'oni -- however, he examines that claim critically, as his father no doubt did or would have). In fact, the source is probably from outside the Adler family, I imagine. The oral source the author gives, HaRav Yitzchak Kaufman" of B’nei Brak, who is married to a descendant of Rav Nathan Adler" relates that he heard this from Rabbi Moishe Schneider in a mussar schmuess long before joining the Adler family. It may well be that the 300+ strong Adler yungeleits in B'nei Brak tell this story, but it seems to me more likely that it came to them through mussar schmuessen and the like rather than from anything that the family patriarch ever said or did.

That said, IIRC the Chief Rabbi was known to the royal family from his Hanover days -- a historian writes that "Whilst Rabbi in Hanover, he became acquainted with Prince Adolphus, Duke of Cambridge, regent of the province, who is thought to have recommended him for the post of Chief Rabbi in Britain" -- and perhaps Victoria did pen a note to the Duke's Palace synagogue supporting his candidacy.

Incidentally, Montefiore's diaries (from 1812-1883) don't seem to know of anything remotely like this incident, or mention the HMS Arc Royal or know that he was in Hanover at any time besides 1857 and 1872

Christmas 2009: Many New Mexicans Take A Hit, But Help Is Never Far Away. Plus: Some Holiday Cheer From Us To You

It's Christmas 2009. Thousands of our neighbors have been hammered by the economic downturn, our state budget is in chaos and the future looks mighty uncertain, but the season of hope has a momentum all its own and its arrival promises to soothe the soul and calm the nerves. It also helps to know that those taking a hit in our state are never far from a helping hand.

We ran into our old friend Jeremy Reynalds the other day. He's the longtime director of the ABQ homeless shelter Joy Junction which come rain or shine or Christmas Day is on the front lines in providing assistance to anyone who needs it. He passed this along:

Joy Junction Homeless Shelter’s Lifeline of Hope Mobile Food Wagon will be touring the streets of Albuquerque and the surrounding area on Christmas Eve...the wagon will make stops at locations where the homeless are known to congregate. Reynalds and his crew will distribute a variety of items, including hot soup, stew, coffee, juice and coats...

And the shelter will have its 24rd annual traditional Christmas dinner at Joy Junction's 4500 Second Street Southwest facility from 2 p.m. through 6 p.m. Dec. 25. Call Jeremy at (505) 400-7145 for more information.

CHRISTMAS CHEER


Thanks for coming by here for another year. It's a privilege to have you. Here's our annual Christmas card for you, your friends and family. And here's some swingin' Christmas cheer from Frank.

Merry Christmas, New Mexico!

Maskilic zemiros in 19th century Lemberg.

I was reading the extremely interesting עראינערונגען פון מיין לעבען (1936) by Joseph Margoshes (1866-1955) (which was recently translated into English and published as A world apart: a memoir of Jewish life in nineteenth century Galicia. One of the interesting things about this book was to read about the early life led by a man who died in 1955, which in many respects differed little from life in Galicia in the 18th century. Parts of it reminded me of Salomon Maimon's autobiography; not in the skeptical/ heretical sense; only in the description of rural life in eastern Europe in what was still essentially under the serf system, being married at 15, etc. His great-grandfather was the last secretary of the Va'ad Arba'ah Aratzos (which folded up shop in 1764), and his father was one of the founders of the rigid Orthodox Machzikei Ha-das Society (see Rachel Manekin's PhD dissertation). Margoshes describes what life was like growing up in the upper stratum of Galician Jewish society, as he reminds the reader on almost every page.

But I digress. This post is about an interesting passage in the book:


The shaleshudesn in Reb Votshi's Kloyz were really impressive. We lived not far from the Kloyz. My father would come home right after Mincha, wash in preparation to eat, and taking with him some requisite ritual amount of challah bread, return to the kloyz and spend time with everybody. For shaleshudes everyone would usually drink mead. It always ended up that some balebos "was required to provide liquor" and soon a "big zaddik" or at least a "small zaddik" of mead would appear (a "big zaddik" was a bottle that held 90 glasses of mead, and a "small zaddik" only held 60). People would comment on the Torah, sing zmires, and each zmire had its regular singer. Reb Shmuel Shaynblum, Reb Vovtshi's son, had a nice, pleasant voice. And because he was a maskil, he sang the zmires that had been composed by the great old Hebrew poets, Rabbi Abraham Ibn Ezra and Dunash ben Labrat, i.e., "Ki eshmera shabbos" and "Dror Yikra."
(Translation taken from the English version.)

Also interesting is Margoshes's description of how the 4th, 5th and 6th issues of the Machzeikei Ha-dos newspaper (how a newspaper was deemed to be kosher is interesting in itself) was hand-written and lithographed. The first three issues were printed, but that proved too expensive. By the 7th issue it was realized that the large run (3000 copies) required better paper, so it was back to the printer's. Margoshe's writes about how young men were encouraged to master various Yiddish and Hebrew scripts for the purpose, among them his brother, who was responsible for certain parts of these issues. He included a picture of one:



He also writes that because there was a special tax (or, deposit, really) which was required by the authorities for weekly newspapers, it was the practice of weeklies (Jewish and non-Jewish) to change the name of the paper slightly every other issue. For example, one week the Machzike Ha-dos would be called by that name, and the next week it would be called Kol Machziek Ha-dos. The government was aware of it, and turned a blind eye, unless someone lodged a complaint, which is how some newspapers were shut down by opponents.

Politicos Exchange Xmas Cheer, Plus: Di On Offense On Campaign Disclosure; Will R's Catch Up? And: Would Ethics Commission Become A Kangaroo Court?

Cargo & Denish
We didn't quite get the cell phone camera to focus how we wanted, but we can't pass up bringing you this photo of former NM Republican Governor Dave Cargo and Lt. Governor Diane Denish who hopes to hold the position Dave had from '67 thru '70.

We caught up with the pair at a Christmas party at the ABQ home of Clara Apodaca, NM first lady from '75 to '79, and it reminded us that bipartisanship is not a ship that all have abandoned--or at least that's the hope this holiday season.

Denish, 60, and Cargo, still going strong at 80, are both tough political actors of their respective times but both have shown a willingness to work with a diverse cast of political characters. New Mexico is like that. We are so diverse that gubernatorial success is usually a bridge over the middle. Cargo is urging his fellow R's seeking to beat Denish to get on that bridge in 2010 or get buried. Denish will seek not to loose her footing in the middle as both left and right start pushing her harder in the year ahead.

DI'S ETHICS OFFENSE

Denish said Tuesday she will follow her past policy and not solicit campaign funds during the legislative session that kicks off next month, even though the law allows a lieutenant governor to do so. The law prohibits legislators and the Governor from fund-raising beginning January 1st, continuing through the session and another 20 days after that for the Guv. It makes sense for Di to refrain because she is involved in lawmaking as the presiding officer of the state Senate and is called upon to vote in the event of a tie. The law allowing a light guv to go on fund-raising during the session seems too light.

She also said she will continue to voluntarily release a campaign finance report every three months, even though that's not required. We previously pointed out that her voluntary October report lumped her paid campaign staff under a payroll company, so the names and salaries of the staff were not readily available to the voters. But that info is now released on that report, although a clerical error has the staff listed as being from 2005. Her next report will come in January and her campaign says it will have full disclosure of all donations and expenditures, including staff. The next required state report isn't due until mid-March.

Denish could be scoring political points for releasing financial reports more often than required. The R candidates, all vociferously attacking Denish on ethics, seem behind the curve. Where, the Denish crowd crows, are the voluntary finance reports from Allen Weh, Susana Martinez, Doug Turner and Janice Arnold-Jones? Where indeed?

HOLIDAY ZINGER


ABQ State Rep. and GOP Guv candidate Janice Arnold-Jones is prohibited by law from raising any campaign money starting January 1 and not ending until the Legislature adjourns, but that isn't stopping some of the snipers in another campaign from taking a shot at her. They say if Janice was really serious about becoming Guv, she would resign her legislative seat and campaign full-time for Guv, including raising money. That way, sniped the sniper, there would be no question that she is fully committed to the campaign and not planning to fall back on a run for her state House seat should her Guv effort falter.

A friend of Janice's reminds the holiday politics watchers that she's the only GOP Guv candidate with legislative experience and huffs that the candidate will give up her House seat when she's elected Governor.

MORE RICHARDSON 59


We've revealed a total of 19 of the 59 political appointees who are being let go by the Guv to help balance the state budget. We've done it with our Alligators who have a stellar record, but one got by them and us. Rick Silva of the property tax division of the NM Taxation and Revenue Department was apparently targeted for a pink slip, as our Gators reported in our first blog draft Tuesday, but he has since been given a reprieve. He is still on the job which we personally confirmed. Also, former ABQ State Rep. Delano Garcia was working with the NM National Guard as a legislative liaison, not the Dept. of Veterans' Affairs as we first blogged.

There's going to be a mistake or two along the line when you try to bust the government for a lack of transparency in how they spend your money, especially when it refuses to release the names of those in question. Traditional journalistic tools may or may not get the info for us when reams of records are released later. That's where our senior sources come in. We're still trying to compile names so email us with any fresh info.

Other questions about the Richardson 59 for the watchdogs to watch for: How many of those being let go are double-dippers, already drawing a retirement check plus their full-time government salary? And will any of The Richardson 59 be rehired in other government positions? Stay with us...

THE KANGAROO COMMISSION?

We just got done blogging above about the need for full disclosure from the Guv candidates, but that doesn't mean we are going to buy hook, line and sinker anything with "ethics" stamped on it. Some things are just a bad buy this holiday season. Like this....

The more we hear about the proposed state ethics commission, the more we fear it will end up resembling a Kangaroo court. New Mexico politics is crazy enough without unleashing the politicians to look at each other's dirty laundry, but that's what this commission--or carnival--would appear to do if given life in the January legislative session. Look at the proposed membership as described by assistant attorney general Stuart Bluestone:

It provides for 11 members, with two appointed by the House Democratic Caucus, two by the House Republican Caucus, two by the Senate Democratic Caucus, two by the Senate Republican Caucus, and the governor appoints three members--a Democrat, a Republican and someone who is neither a Democrat nor a Republican. The 11 members can only act if there is a quorum of eight, and at least eight of the 11 members must agree on every action the commission takes.

This thing is looking as unwieldy as Tiger Woods' date book. Hey, Stu. Why not throw in eight maids a milking and a couple of partridges in a pear tree?

Call us naive, but we happen to think Attorney General Gary King, State Auditor Hector Balderas, US Attorney Fouratt (and his successor) are more than capable of performing their ethical watchdog roles if given proper funding and if pushed hard to do so by the press and public. (Haven't the feds in recent years put behind bars two state treasurers and the former leader of the state Senate? Isn't a former secretary of state under indictment?)

But this is New Mexico where we like to complicate the uncomplicated. And don't forget those nice, juicy staff jobs for the ethics commission. That matter could be the first case before the new panel--the hiring of cronies to administer the new ethics commission!

WHERE'S THE WATER?


Tucumcari reader Catherine Bugg wanted to use our blog to send a message to the state engineer who presides over all things water. But it wasn't a Christmas card Catherine wanted to convey:

Dear Mr. Monahan, I am writing you as a landowner in the Arch Hurley Conservancy District. For the past three years we have not had our allotment of water from Conchas Lake. This has created a great hardship on farmers, ranchers, business owners and economic development in general in Quay County, Eastern New Mexico. To the tune of $40 million per year to the economy.

We have worked with our board of directors and discovered some illegal diversions upstream on the Canadian River. We, landowners, board members and the Executive Director Franklin McCasland have made attempts to contact the State Engineer's office, our local state representative, the governor and anyone else we can think of to no avail.

One of our questions is if there is a 250% snow pack and yet there is no run-off into Conchas, what is the problem? We would like some help with publicity in this matter, to get our message across the state.

You've got our help, Catherine. John D'Antonio is the state engineer. Tis' the season, John, so why not give Catherine a ring?

Making A List And Checking It Twice; "The Richardson 59" Continued, Plus: The Adams Chronicles; Readers Join High Pay Dispute, And: My Bottom Lines

Checking the list
We're making a list and we're checking it twice, but it's not the one we're sending to Santa. This list reveals one of the best kept secrets in New Mexico--but fast becoming one of the worst kept: Who are the 59 political appointees Big Bill let go as part of the state's effort to balance the deficit choked budget? The Guv has refused to release the names saying it would not be dignified to do so. Media efforts to get the names released have been met with a legal stiff arm, but our reliable readers and Alligators have so far pegged 15 of the 59. We asked them to keep the names coming (email in any you have) and they delivered. Here's the latest from our exclusive list:

One of the highest paid exempts to be given the axe is Stephen Easley. He earns about $95,000 a year as the chief information officer for the Department of Public Safety. One Republican legislator told us on background that Easley's departure is a "big loss." This legislator also complained that most of the exempt employees they are hearing about losing their jobs are mid-level state workers, not the big kahunas making over $85,000 a year and whose jobs are not "mission" critical.

Attorney Pilar Vaile, deputy director of the Public Employee Relations Board, is another exempt losing their job. She made about $62,000 a year. Our insider says Vaile has been an independent director and wonders if the Guv's list targets exempt employees who have not been as loyal to him and his minions as he would like. It's reasonable speculation because by not releasing the list, the Guv is acting as if the state has something to hide.

Shanon Riley makes the hit list. She's is a lawyer for the NM National Guard, paid about $70,000 a year. Riley is a former prosecutor in the Bernalillo County District Attorney's office. She didn't have much longevity in her current post which may have made her vulnerable to the axe.

Darla Aiken an administrative assistant in the ABQ office of the NM Commission on the Status of Women is another of the exempt employees who will receive their last paycheck at the end of the month. She was making about $39,000 a year.

We blogged Monday that former ABQ State Rep. Delano Garcia was one of those taken out, but we did not know his position. Now we do. Garcia was a $61,000 a year military liaison with the NM National Guard.

That now gives us 19 of "The Richardson 59." If you can help us fill out the the list, feel free to email . A complete list of current exempt state employees and their salaries and agency affiliation is available here.

THE ADAMS CHRONICLES

Speaking of salaries, that $147,000 former ABQ chief administrative officer Ed Adams continues to pull down, despite being reassigned to a lower level position in the city, is bringing reaction. KOB-TV and the Journal hit the story this week, reporting that Mayor Berry asked Ed to take a $10,000 salary cut in his new position at the municipal development department, but Ed refused. He produced a contract he had inked with the Chavez administrative prohibiting the city from cutting his pay if and when he left his post as CAO.

Reader Rob on ABQ's Nob Hill comes with this:

Adams typifies why people look suspiciously at anyone who works within government... Adams' $147,000 could be used to help hire younger, smarter, and harder-working professionals who would improve the city. There is a very fine line between experience and stagnation, and someone who refuses to help the new administration by taking a pay cut should be shown the door. Thousands of New Mexicans have lost their jobs and Mr. Adams' lack of courtesy or decency should earn him a place in the unemployment line with all the New Mexicans who pay his salary.

But Barry Bitzer, who served s ABQ Mayor Chavez's chief of staff and worked closely with Adams comes with a different take:

I've worked with Ed Adams. I don't like his call to take no pay cut, but I also remember Ed's unique ability to make major projects come in on time, on budget, look good and work right. Think Isotopes Park or Montano Bridge. If Ed had also been in charge of the Courthouse or county jail projects, taxpayers would be millions better off for it.


BYE TO BACA

Former ABQ Mayor Jim Baca is retiring from his $90,000 a year state job. The Guv's office says:

...New Mexico’s Natural Resources Trustee Jim Baca is retiring effective December 31st...Governor Richardson announced he has appointed Environment Secretary Ron Curry to serve as interim Trustee...Richardson is asking Secretary Curry to take on this responsibility, in addition to his duties as Secretary of the NM Environment Department, in order to save taxpayer dollars...Richardson will consider appointing a full time trustee when state revenues improve.

Baca has been a fixture in NM government since the 1970's. He plans to be even more of a curmudgeon in retirement.

MY BOTTOM LINES


Will the bankruptcy of Citadel Broadcasting, owner of 50,000 watt radio talker KKOB-AM, have an impact on the on-air staff? Not for now, says one of our radio insiders:

Morning host Bob Clark, afternoon host Jim Villanucci, and everyone in the news department is safe--for now--despite the Citadel bankruptcy.


And from KRQE-TV news comes word that reporter Dave Bohman will head out to take a job in the Scranton, PA market.

No new cars for new Mayor Berry or chief administrative officer Dave Campbell. RJ's city fleet car has over 40,000 miles on it and Dave's Tahoe is nearing the 100,000 mile mark. But they are still doing better than thousands of unemployed Duke City residents and they know it...

Former ABQ Dem State Rep. Dan Silva tells us he has opened an Italian restaurant at the site of the old Gruet restaurant on Montgomery--not to be confused with the also recently closed Gruet Steakhouse on Nob Hill. We can tell you Dan will dole out the food in a nonpartisan manner--he did the catering for a recent party for GOP Governor candidate Doug Turner.
