New Mexican (Newspaper) - January 11, 2005, Santa Fe, New Mexico Tuesday January 11 2005 THE NEW MEXICAN A3 FUNDS Continued from Page Al Region 2 will have to recoup the bogus billing however it can she said RAP director Scott Riedel issued a written statement Monday afternoon saying the program would try to stay open for another two to three weeks because workers were volunteering to stay at their jobs while administrators tried to resolve the funding crisis The state grants made up a large portion of RAPs operating budget Riedel did not return phone calls Monday night seeking comment on the claims made by Region 2 administrators Romero said she under stood from meetings during the last month with RAP that the program did not have the ability to repay the money it allegedly overcharged They have a responsibil ity to the taxpayers of New Mexico and these are public WATER she cautioned They will have to do somethingto repay the erroneous Santa Fe cant afford to lose a facility bke RAP said Carol Luna Anderson director of The Life Link a mentalhealth and substanceabuse treatment program for homeless people in Santa Fe With its 25bed residential unit RAP provides the communitys only detox beds for people who cant kick their addiction alone but dont require medical care I think the community is going to have to step in with other agencies who have the expertise in the treatment world and figure out what we need to do to keep this Anderson said St Vincent Hospitals emergency department sends patients to RAP at least a couple of times each day said Dr Frantz Melio the depart ments director In addition the hospitals crisis counsel ors refer people to RAP for inpatient treatment Besides RAP the closest inpatient treatment beds are in Espa nola and Taos If RAP closes the loss to the community would be pretty Melio said Even with the nonprofit most doc tors and social workers agree Santa Fe doesnt have enough detox beds Socialservice agencies in Santa Fe have advocated another detox facility in Santa Fe for at least a decade They have pointed to a consistent gap in care for people with substanceabuse problems who are often jailed because there is no other safe place available The Health Department supported Region 2s decision to terminate RAPs contract especially because RAP was given several opportunities to correct the deficiencies but did not do said Beth Velasquez the departments spokeswoman Region 2 is working on a plan to transition RAPs eight residential patients to another agency said Larry Martinez chairman of the Region 2 board of directors I think the other providers will have to step forward and do what they can to expand he said They have no choice but to do Even before the notice from Region 2 some prob lems had emerged at RAP Part of Nanette Farrellys job as a social worker for the state public defenders office includes finding treatment for people who have been sen tenced to such programs by a judge Farrelly said she has been unable to get her clients admitted to RAP for several months because administra tors said the program was full and had a list of patients who wanted to be admitted Every time you called it seemed like there was a huge long waiting list Continued from Page Al But Potter said if the coun cil were to reject the pro posal this might cause more water shortages for existing city residents It will give the council the flexibility to plan for the he said Ehlert echoed Potters enthusiasm but warned I would advise you to get the water before you start doling it Under the proposed water agreement Santa Fe would pay Sierra Waterworks a company created by Estan ciaarea farmers about million to buy a 51 percent interest in acres of land and acrefeet of water rights about half of Santa Fes annual consumption On Monday Rick Carpenter city waterresources coordina tor told the committee that about half of the 7200 acrefeet are recognized by the State Engineer Such recognition by the state engineer allows an Opposition plans meeting EstanclSarea residents opposed to exporting ter to Santa Fe have planned an organizational meeting for Friday in the Torrance County fairgrounds building in Estancia According to a news release the Estancia Resource Association selected Art Swenka as chairman of its orga nizational board University of New Mexico Law School profes sor emeritus Charles DuMars will speak at the meeting The organization intends to fund legal aid to fight the cur rent exportation proposal and entity to sell the water rights He said the sellers would have to prove they are putting the water to beneficial such as growing a crop before they can sell the water rights Carpenter also explained two changes in the proposed deal negotiated last week with then will propose and pursue legislation at state and local levels to protect the Estancia Water Basin from future the release said Estanciaarea farmer John Cyle Sharp wants to sell the city a option to a million purchase of two large tracts of land with acrefeet of water rights about half of the citys annual Santa Fe would need about mil lion more to drill wells build a reverseosmosis plant to clean the water to drinking standards and lay 65 miles of pipeline to carry the water to Santa Fe Sierra Waterworks One change would allow the city to pay an extra million for an extra year on an option to buy the water rights The original proposal called for the city to pay million over three years Now the city would pay million over four years The other change would give the city 10 percent of the water for the million option fee even if it did not exercise the option to purchase all the water The original partial purchase option would have allowed the city to buy 26 per cent of the water if it paid an extra million in addition to the million option fee City officials estimate it will take about million more to drill new wells build a reverseosmosis plantto clean the mineralized water and lay 65 miles of pipeline to carry up to million gallons a day to Santa Fe Navy Sub struck natural feature The Associated Press HAGATNA Guam A nuclear submarine that ran aground over the weekend

Davis said He had been working in the subs engineering compart ments Adm Thomas Fargo commander of Pacific Command based in Hawaii said Monday a rapid and thorough investigation was under way Fargo

Fargo presided over a rare court of inquiry following the Feb 9 2001 sinking of a Japanese fishing boat by the nuclearpowered attack submarine USS Green eville Nine men and boys were killed in the
