condemned the slaying of
Gregorio Rodríguez Hernández, a
photographer with the daily El
Debate in Escuinapa, in the
northwestern state of Sinaloa.
Hernández was gunned down on
28 November while dining in a
restaurant with his wife and two
children.
“In view of the increasing
violence in Mexico, especially
against the press, all aspects of this
murder must be investigated
thoroughly including the
possibility that it was linked to the

USCIS lanzará el InfoPass Our Lady of

al nivel nacional
El Servicio de Ciudadanía e
Inmigración de EEUU (USCIS),
ha abierto a los residentes del área
de la Ciudad de Nueva York su
sistema de programación de citas
por Internet, InfoPass, al cual ha
considerado como un hito en
servicio al cliente.
USCIS ha anunciado también su
compromiso
para
la
implementación de InfoPass a
nivel nacional, lo que incluiría 33
Distritos de USCIS para
septiembre de 2004.
Con InfoPass, el público puede
programar una cita en línea, con
fecha y hora, para reunirse con
funcionarios de información de
inmigración, evitando la necesidad
de esperar a la cola. Puesto en
práctica primero en Miami, la
Oficina del Distrito de Nueva York
es ahora uno de los cuatro lugares
claves que ofrecen actualmente
esta iniciativa práctica y fácil de
usar.
El Director de USCIS, Eduardo
Aguirre, que asistió al
lanzamiento, predijo que InfoPass
llegaría a representar la
eliminación de las colas de espera

Nueva York, el cual sirvió a más
de 350.000 personas el año

importante para USCIS en nuestro
compromiso para ofrecerles a
nuestros clientes servicio de la
mejor calidad”, declaró el Director
Aguirre. “InfoPass comenzó el
año pasado en Miami y en cuestión
de semanas vimos un descenso
drástico de las colas de espera y
los tiempos de espera para nuestros
clientes. Tenemos optimismo en
que conseguiremos los mismos
resultados en Nueva York y en
todas nuestras oficinas.”
InfoPass se ofrece ahora en 12
idiomas: árabe, chino, criollo,
inglés, francés, coreano, polaco,
portugués, español, tagalo, ruso y
vietnamita. USCIS tiene planes de
agregar otros idiomas en el futuro.
Típicamente, los clientes se
pondrían a la cola en varias
oficinas de USCIS a veces antes
del amanecer para asegurarse de
que tendrían la oportunidad de
hablar con un oficial de
información de inmigración sobre
su caso. Debido a la demanda
abrumadora, mucha gente debía
volverse sin sus respuestas.

US Olympic Committee Give the Gift of Flight
confirms anti-doping stance
For those last-minute
The United States Olympic
Committee is committed to being
a leader in the fight against doping
in sport. That commitment is
evident in our support for the US
Anti-Doping Agency, which is
recognized and respected as the
leading anti-doping agency in the
world.
American athletes willingly
participate in the most rigorous
anti-doping program in the world,
a program administered by
USADA.
In 2004, the US Anti-Doping
Agency has conducted more than
6,700 tests under its domestic
program, of which nearly half have
been true no-advance-notice tests.
Of those tests, less than one
percent have resulted in a doping
violation.
These results say something
powerful about USADA and the
overwhelming majority of US
athletes who are committed to
competing clean and within the
rules.
In addition, USADA played an
integral role in the Balco
investigation and in the discovery
of the designer steroid THG.
The US Olympic Committee
will expand its efforts to eradicate
doping in Olympic sport with the
assistance of the International
Olympic Committee, the World
Anti-Doping Agency, the US AntiDoping Agency, and any other
organization committed to
identifying and punishing those
individuals and companies
attempting to enhance athlete
performance through illicit means.
Our position on this is clear:
there is no room on the US
Olympic or Paralympic Team for
any athlete or coach who seeks to
break the rules by using banned or
illegal substances.

procrastinators
consider
including something that’s truly
unique and easy to give as zerohour approaches. Give the gift of
flight with an introductory flying
lesson through the national, nonprofit Be A Pilot Program.
The experience of actually
flying an airplane cannot be
rivaled by anything off a store
shelf or online retailer’s catalog.
To give this memorable gift,
simply register the recipient at
www.beapilot.com or call 888BE A PILOT.
If you register online, you can
print a certificate right from the
computer and stick it in an
envelope with the $49 cost of the
lesson. The recipient will take it
to a nearby flight school when
he or she is ready (more than
2,100 participate in the program,
find one in your area at
www.beapilot.com/schools) and
pays the school at the time of the
lesson.
Then comes the moment of
truth, when the recipient will climb
into the cockpit and fly an airplane
for about 30 minutes alongside an
FAA-licensed instructor. It’s a
thrill he or she will never forget.
More than 240,000 people have
registered for the introductory
lesson since 1997, when BE A
PILOT was launched by the
General Aviation industry to
educate the public on the
benefits of learning to fly.

Slapping Mexican haters and immigration critics on the side of the head is deliriously satisfying
when the urban myths they live by are shattered by facts.
Two examples come to mind: First, the controversy about what percentage of Hispanic votes
President George W. Bush received in his re-election; secondly, the changing birth rates among
Hispanic women, in particular the birth rates of Hispanic women in California and the fall-off of
Hispanic births.
In recent days, Hispanic critics have leaped on a phony bandwagon that some people have constructed
about exactly what percentage of Hispanic votes the President received. We have seen statements
that too many Hispanic Republicans were polled, that numbers were transposed, that one rogue
wildly Democratic non-profit objected to national exit polls because its own polls were concentrated
in the barrio where it thinks all Hispanics live.
Most adjustments, even bona fide ones, have been made by the polling agency that supplied television
networks. These adjustments have been downward from the 42-44 percent Hispanic Bush vote it
reported on Election Day. Missing from all these stories is the independent Election Day exit poll
conducted by the Los Angeles Times Poll.
Never famous for being pro-Bush or even pro-Hispanic, the LA Times Poll surveyed 5,154 voters
(including 3, 357 California voters) in 136 polling places nationwide. It had a plus or minus 3
percent margin of error.
Simply stated: The Los Angeles Times Poll concluded that 45 percent of Hispanics voted for George
W. Bush. There have been no adjustments to that conclusion and it directly contradicts the unofficial
Democratic poll conducted by the non-profit Democratic group called the William C. Velasquez
Institute that polled in only 46 locations in eleven states with a total of 777 respondents. For more
clues about its partisanship, the group’s spokesman is professional Democrat Michael Bustamante,
former press spokesman for recalled Democratic former governor of California, Gray Davis.
In other words, the Velasquez poll and the Mexican haters who use it to criticize Hispanics are both
to be ignored for they are both unreliable as purveyors of urban myths and the lies the myths are
built on.
Now comes the scientific destruction of dire warnings about skyrocketing Hispanic birth rates that
are “destined” to plunge California and the country into Third World status. Ignorance and the
importation of sky-high Mexican birthrates will, according to Mexican haters, destroy California’s
environment, schools, industry and general well being. So state immigration critics and Mexican
haters. They are wrong, of course, as real numbers tell truths that discomfort them as all truths do.

Chase makes $1 million grant to National Council of La Raza
Chase, the retail banking unit of
JPMorgan Chase & Co.,
announced a $1 million grant to
the National Council of La Raza
(NCLR) and its community
development subsidiary, the Raza
Development Fund (RDF), to
finance land acquisition for
community development projects
around the country. The grant will
also fund financial education
programs delivered by NCLR’s
affiliate network.
“Our $1 million grant will
address one of the most difficult
challenges facing low- and
moderate-income communities:
gaining access to the capital
necessary to build vibrant
neighborhoods,” said Mark Willis,
head of community development
for JPMorgan Chase. “This is just
the start of what we hope will be a
significant and sustainable
relationship with NCLR.”
A land acquisition fund
managed by Arizona-based RDF
will receive $750,000 of the total
grant. RDF is the nation’s largest
and most successful Latino
Community
Development
Financial Institution (CDFI) in the
country.
RDF will leverage the grant
money, along with access to $10
million for loans at favorable rates,
to assist NCLR-affiliated
community-based organizations
around the country
in purchasing and
developing land
for affordable
housing, charter

“Thanks to Chase, this unique
investment will bear real fruit in
the construction of community
facilities that impact the lives of
hundreds of low- and moderateincome Latinos throughout the
country,” said Tommy Espinoza,
RDF president and a longtime
community leader in Phoenix.
“It’s especially timely to receive
this grant in the final month of
Raul Yzaguirre’s presidency at
NCLR, marking another milestone
of his legacy.”
Yzaguirre, who is retiring from
NCLR this month after 30 years
directing the organization, helped
launch RDF in 1998 with the goal
of providing flexible, high-quality
loans and technical assistance to
Latino-serving entities.
The announcement of the grant
was made at RDF’s annual board
meeting in Phoenix, with officials
from Chase and Bank One
presenting the check to Yzaguirre,
Espinoza, and Janet Murguia,
currently the Executive Director
and Chief Operating Officer of
NCLR.
She will succeed
Yzaguirre in January.
“This grant will significantly
increase NCLR’s impact as a
community
development
organization,” added Yzaguirre,
who also serves as Chairman of the
RDF Board of Directors.
“I look forward to seeing this
partnership with Chase continue to
grow in the years to come.”
PPWFC looking for dislocated workers
The Pikes Peak Workforce
Center (PPWFC) announces that
it has received additional funding
to help dislocated workers retrain
or upgrade their skills to increase
their employment opportunities.
Dislocated workers are people
who have lost their jobs through
no fault of their own, such as laid-
off workers or those who were
involved in a plant or business
closing.
Scholarships and tuition
assistance are available to those
who want to retrain into another
field, who need to upgrade their
skills in their current field, and
who meet eligibility requirements.
PPWFC can also help with
intensive job search, one-on-one
résumé review, upgrading of basic
skills including math, reading and
computer skills and other services.
As a first step in the process,
dislocated workers should call
667-3700 and schedule an
appointment for orientation.
Comprehensive settlement endorsed for
Xcel Energy Resource Plan
Xcel Energy (NYSE:XEL) filed
with the Colorado Public Utilities
Commission (CPUC) an allinclusive settlement agreement
regarding its Least-Cost Plan
(LCP), which has been endorsed
by numerous parties to the
regulatory proceeding.
Under the agreement, Xcel
Energy’s operating company,
Public Service Company of
Colorado, would move forward
with its plan to satisfy a resource
need of approximately 3,600
megawatts (Mw) of new
generating capacity by 2013.
The resource need would be met
through a combination of
competitive bids for both fossilfueled and renewable energy
resources, energy conservation
programs and a new coal-fired
generating unit built by the
company. Approximately 1,600
Mw of existing supply contracts
that will expire over the 10-year
planning period covered by the
LCP could be renewed. One Mw
provides enough electricity for
approximately 1,000 customers on
an average day.
Xcel Energy would, according
to the settlement, install state-ofthe-art emissions reduction
equipment on all generating units
at the Comanche Generating
Station near Pueblo, including the
new, 750-Mw unit to be built at
that location. Although the
company would more than double
the station’s current, 660megawatt capacity, sulfur dioxide
(SO2) and nitrogen oxide (NOx)
emissions from the enlarged
station would decline.
The new coal-fired unit near
Pueblo would be the first such unit
built by Xcel Energy in Colorado
since the Pawnee Generating
Station went into service in 1981.
The total cost of the project,
including required transmission, is
estimated to be $1.35 billion. The
proposed settlement will save
customers between $500 million
and $1.4 billion as compared to
other resource options considered.
The company would also
significantly expand its energy
conservation programs, accelerate
a study of the feasibility of
additional renewable power
resources, explore innovative
technologies that reduce
greenhouse gas emissions and
account for potential carbon
reduction regulation in resource
planning.
“We’ve had long, intense and
creative negotiations with a wide
variety of stakeholders to come up
with an agreement that considers
not only Colorado’s environment,
but also the state’s consumers,”
said Fred Stoffel, vice president of
policy development for Xcel
Energy.
“We are pleased to agree on a
plan that addresses our customers’
needs for the next decade, and we
appreciate the efforts of all energy
and environmental experts in
Colorado who helped work
through the details of this plan.”
On April 30, Xcel Energy filed
its resource plan with the CPUC.
The plan, required by the
commission every four years to
cost-effectively address ways to
meet the state’s growing energy
needs, called for a variety of new
resources, including renewable
energy, natural gas, coal and
energy conservation.
The company analyzed more
than 100 possible combinations of
resource options. The CPUC has
taken public comment, received
testimony from numerous
intervening parties, and presided
over nearly three weeks of public
hearings regarding the resource
plan.
In mid-November,
commissioners suspended public
hearings to allow Xcel Energy and
interveners time to develop the
settlement agreement. Key
components of the agreement
include:
Least-cost resource plan
• Construction of a new, 750-Mw
coal-fired generating unit near
Pueblo;
• Additional supply, acquired
through an all-source competitive
solicitation, could include natural
gas, renewable and coal resources
to be selected as part of a leastcost mix of generating resources;
and
• Net present value savings to
customers will be $500 million to
$1.4 billion as compared with
other resource option mixes
considered.
Comanche Generating Station
• The new unit would feature stateof-the-art SO2, NOx, particulate
and mercury emissions reduction
technology;
• The new unit would be built
under a confidential construction
cost cap; and
• Two existing Comanche
generating units would receive
SO2, NOx and mercury reduction
technologies.
Energy conservation
• Xcel Energy will spend up to
$196 million to reduce peak
demand by 320 megawatts and
conserve 800,000 megawatt-hours
of energy through Demand-Side
Management (DSM) programs by
2014; and
• The company will conduct a

item should be new and in it’s
original packaging. You should
never regift a one-of-a-kind gift,
such as a handmade scarf. And the
most important rule of all: never
give something back to the original
giver. Label items to be regifted
clearly to help you avoid this social
faux pas.
Most people want to give gifts
that will be treasured by the
recipient; however, that perfect gift
can sometimes be expensive. In
fact, studies show that consumers
plan to spend more than $700 on
the holidays this year. To make
the most of your holiday gift
budget, the experts at Money
Management International offer
the following advice:
Just because something is on
sale doesn’t mean it is a good deal.
Most everyone likes to get
something on sale, but you should
never purchase something based
on price alone. For example, even

National Hispanic Council on Aging nombra a Yanira L. Cruz
Presidenta y CEO
El Consejo Nacional Hispano
sobre el Envejecimiento (The
National Hispanic Council on
Aging o NHCOA), un organismo
nacional que se dedica a mejorar
la calidad de vida de los hispanos
mayores, ha nombrado a Yanira L.
Cruz, M.P.H., su nueva presidenta
y CEO.
La junta de directores de
NHCOA presentará a Cruz en una
recepción formal de 6 a 8 pm el
30 de noviembre en el Mexican
Cultural Institute, 2829 16th St.
NW, Washington, DC.
Charlie Mendoza, presidente de
la junta de NHCOA, dijo que Cruz
es “la persona correcta en el
momento adecuado” para la
organización.
“Yanira Cruz cuenta con la
habilidad,
la
trayectoria
profesional y la empatía necesaria
para ayudar a NHCOA a abordar
los problemas en aumento que
actualmente enfrentan los
hispanos mayores de edad”, dijo
Mendoza.
“Ella
está
genuinamente interesada en los
hispanos mayores, y realmente
estamos encantados de contar con
ella”.
Cruz también es profesora
adjunta de salud pública en George
Washington University en
Washington.
Antes de
incorporarse a NHCOA, Cruz se
desempeñó como directora
ejecutiva y funcionaria principal
de operaciones de HispanicServing Health Professions
Schools (HSHPS) en Washington.
Se incorporó a HSHPS después de
desempeñarse como directora del

Institute for Hispanic Health en el
National Council of La Raza
(NCLR).
En su calidad de la nueva
presidenta de NHCOA, Cruz se
dedicará a mejorar la calidad de
vida para los hispanos mayores y
sus familias y comunidades por
medio de la política oficial, los
esfuerzos educativos, las
intervenciones comunitarias, el
desarrollo del potencial y la
asistencia técnica.
“Mi prioridad primordial es
generar conciencia nacionalmente
sobre los problemas críticos en
aumento que afrontan los hispanos
mayores; darles voz y voto”, dijo
Cruz. “La pobreza sigue siendo
desproporcionadamente alta entre
los hispanos mayores. Además,
los latinos mayores, que cada vez
son una proporción mayor de la
población de nuestra nación, están
representados de manera
drásticamente insuficiente en el
acceso a la atención de la salud”.
Según el Censo de los Estados
Unidos, el número de personas
mayores se multiplicó por once
entre 1900 y 1994, mientras la
población en general apenas se
triplicó. El número de personas
mayores en la población hispana,
que se anticipa que se triplique
para el 2050, también aumentará.
Se espera que el número de
hispanos mayores se cuadruplique
y pase de ser 4 por ciento de la
población mayor total en 1990 a
16 por ciento en el 2050, según el
censo.
“Muchos estadounidenses están
viviendo más tiempo, y los
problemas de salud que afrontan
los hispanos simplemente
aumentarán si no son abordados,
lo que perjudicará a las
generaciones
menores
y
probablemente a la sociedad”, dijo
Cruz.
Los hispanos mayores enfrentan
un número cada vez más alto de
enfermedades crónicas, carencia
de vivienda, de puestos de trabajo
y de capacidad de comprar
alimentos, ropa y necesidades
básicas”, según NHCOA.
“Por ejemplo, muchos latinos
no
pueden
costear
los
medicamentos de venta con receta,
por lo que van a Tijuana y otras
ciudades fronterizas para comprar
medicamentos a un precio menor.
Pero la calidad de la medicina allí
quizá no sea la mejor”, dijo Cruz.
“Debemos
abordar
estos
problemas y otros”.
El sector de la atención de la
salud tampoco está equipado para
lidiar con las demandas de los
grupos demográficos nuevos, lo
que incluye ofrecer servicios
apropiados en términos culturales
y lingüísticos. “Instamos al
gobierno y a aquellos que dictan
la política sobre la atención de la
salud a que nos ayuden a atender
a este grupo,” dijo Cruz. “Se trata
de una crisis”.
Para poner de su parte, NHCOA
lleva sus esfuerzos nacionales de
extensión a diferentes regiones del
país. Por ejemplo, NHCOA ofrece
vivienda a precios módicos y
moderados a hispanos mayores en
Casa Iris en Washington, DC, y
Mira Vista en Garden City, KS,
para
prevenir
su
institucionalización prematura e
innecesaria.
“Muchos latinos mayores no
están manteniéndose al tanto de la
tecnología”, dijo Mendoza.
“Necesitamos contribuir a
educarlos al comunicarnos con
ellos en sus comunidades, iglesias
y grupos, y enseñarles sobre
computadoras para que se puedan
comunicar con sus familias y
entidades gubernamentales sobre
Medicare y otras cuestiones
críticas”.
En Washington, Casa Iris pronto
comenzará a ofrecer clases a los
hispanos mayores para que
aprendan a usar la computadora.
“Vamos a poner 15 computadoras
en Casa Iris y hacer que todos allí
se pongan al día con el siglo XXI”,
dijo Mendoza. “Tenemos la
esperanza de que aprendan a
comunicarse de manera más
económica y frecuente con sus
familiares.”
La familia desempeña una
función clave entre los latinos y
contribuye a que lleven vidas más
saludables y largas (casi cuatro
años más que sus homólogos). La
cultura y el estilo de vida latino,
que incluyen relaciones estrechas
con la familia y la comunidad, y
una vida espiritual y laboral activa,
son influencias positivas en la
salud de los latinos mayores.
Las fiestas de fin de año aumentan el riesgo
a los niños
Las fiestas de fin de año pueden
ser uno de los momentos más
felices del año, lleno de bellos
adornos en el hogar, fiestas con
amigos y visitas a casas de
familiares. Pero según expertos de
UT Southwestern Medical Center
en Dallas, este momento del año
también puede ser peligroso para
los niños cuando los adultos que
los cuidan o anfitriones de las
fiestas olvidan tomar las
precauciones adecuadas.
“La mayoría de peligros durante
la Navidad son los mismos que
acechan a los niños durante
todo el año, pero las fiestas
de fin de año aumentan el
riesgo para los niños,” dice
el Dr. Robert Wiebe,
profesor de pediatría y jefe
de división de emergencias
pediátricas.
“Con la
emoción de la temporada,
los padres que en otras
ocasiones son cuidadosos
pueden no siempre recordar
pensar en los peligros de
ahogos, ingestión y
seguridad.”
Los
expertos
de
UT
Southwestern ofrecen los
siguientes consejos:
Acerca de los adornos…
• Las luces pequeñas, adornos
diminutos y agujas de pino en los
árboles de Navidad, guirnaldas y
coronas pueden ser un peligro para
ahogarse. Mantenga cualquier
cosa que quepa en la boca de un
niño fuera del alcance de los niños.
• Las series de focos y otras
decoraciones eléctricas pueden ser
un peligro para electrocutarse. No
sobrecargue los enchufes y utilice
únicamente equipo eléctrico que
haya sido aprobado por
Underwriter’s
Laboratory.
También inspeccione todos los
cordones
eléctricos
para
asegurarse que no se hayan dañado
mientras estuvieron guardados.
• Las velas, que son más comunes
durante las fiestas de fin de año,
incrementan el riesgo de incendio.
Manténgalas fuera del alcance de
los niños y asegúrese de vestir a
niños pequeños con ropa a prueba
de fuego.
• Las lámparas con esencias
perfumadas, especialmente las que
huelen a comida, son a menudo
muy atractivas para los niños
pequeños. Manténgalas fuera del
alcance de los niños ya que la
esencia de ser ingerida puede
ocasionar neumonía severa por
aspiración.
• Las plantas pueden ser peligrosas
si los niños deciden comérselas en
grandes cantidades. El Holly
(acebo)
puede
producir
inflamación en la piel e indigestión
estomacal. El Muérdago puede ser
tóxico para el corazón, y las flores
de pascua pueden causar irritación
gastrointestinal. Llame a control
de envenenamiento si un niño
decide elegir alguno de estos
artículos como postre.
Acerca de los viajes …
• Los abuelos que reciben visitas
de pequeños deben asegurarse de
que sus casas sean seguras. Los
expertos recomiendan invertir en
seguros para gabinetes y cubiertas
para enchufes, cocinar en las
resistencias traseras, y cuando hay
piscina, asegurarse completamente
que el área sea inaccesible.

NOTICIAS EN ESPANOL
¿Se equivocarán el gobierno y el congreso?
Dado que la Cámara de
Representantes no actuó el 20 de
noviembre con respecto a la
propuesta respaldada por ambos
partidos para implementar las
recomendaciones de la Comisión
del 11 de Septiembre, ha
empezado la cuenta atrás. Entre
las cuestiones importantes se
encuentran si se promulgará
alguna reforma este año y qué
disposiciones se incluirán si se
llega a un acuerdo para proceder
con esta medida en los últimos días
del 108º período de sesiones del
Congreso.
Muchos creen que el Congreso y
el Gobierno resolverán estas
cuestiones en una semana.
Esperemos que no se equivoquen.
Aunque las disposiciones del
proyecto de ley relativas a la
reestructuración de la comunidad
de inteligencia ya habían detenido
el avance en la propuesta, la
insistencia
de
algunos
representantes de que se
incluyeran disposiciones mal
concebidas relacionadas con la
inmigración de la propuesta
HR 10, la medida aprobada por
la Cámara, en la legislación para
la reforma de la inteligencia
nacional contribuyó a la
paralización. Contrariamente a las
afirmaciones de los promotores de
HR 10, no darán mayor seguridad
a Estados Unidos.
La mayoría de las disposiciones
en cuestión nunca se sometieron a
audiencias, debates o una
consideración significativa antes
de su aprobación como parte del
proyecto de ley de reforma de
inteligencia de 561 páginas
aprobado por la Cámara.
Estas disposiciones prohibirían
la aceptación de matrículas
consulares y otras formas de
identificación;
ampliarían
considerablemente el régimen de
expulsión acelerada—un régimen
que en su forma actual contribuye
a debilitar en lugar de mejorar la
seguridad nacional; elevarían el
criterio para poder solicitar asilo
de manera que lo convertiría en
una barrera insuperable para
muchos solicitantes de asilo;
convertirían la revocación de una
visa en motivo de expulsión y
prohibiría
toda
revisión
administrativa y judicial de dicha
decisión;
suspenderían el recurso de hábeas
corpus para toda una serie de
órdenes
administrativas;
expandiría la detención indefinida
obligatoria;
autorizarían la expulsión a países
que carecen de un gobierno en
funcionamiento y países que no la
consientan; y conectarían
directamente la emisión de
permisos de manejar con la
situación migratoria.
Algunos defensores de estas
medidas mal concebidas sugieren
que el acuerdo alcanzado por los
congresistas con respecto a la
legislación para la reforma de la
inteligencia no incluye ninguna
disposición relacionada con la
inmigración y, por lo tanto, no hace
nada en este sentido para
contribuir a la seguridad de nuestro
país.
Nada podría estar más lejos de la
verdad.
De hecho, el acuerdo incluye las
siguientes disposiciones que
incorporan las verdaderas
reformas de la inteligencia que han
estados las comisionados y las
familias del 11 de Septiembre:
• Poner a prueba de tecnología
avanzada (lo que incluye sensores,
videos y vehículos aéreos no
tripulados) para asegurar nuestra
frontera norte;
• Requerir al Departamento de
Seguridad del Territorio Nacional
(DHS) que diseñe planes para la
vigilancia sistemática de la
Las fiestas Continua de página 6
• Al visitar a parientes mayores,
asegúrese de que los niños no
puedan agarrar medicinas que
mantengan sobre los muebles, en
gabinetes y al lado de la cama.
También no olvide la medicina en
la bolsa de la abuela.
• No olvide supervisar a los niños
cuando estén cerca de las
mascotas. Incluso aquellas
mascotas que por lo general son
amigables con los niños pueden
morder debido a que están
alteradas por los cambios en las
rutinas normales, actividad extra
en la casa y ruidos escandalosos.
Acerca de los juguetes …
• Los niños a menudo desean salir
y probar su nueva bicicleta o
scooter. Antes de que salgan
corriendo por la puerta, asegúrese
de que lleven puestos cascos y que
hayan recibido las indicaciones de
seguridad. Una vez afuera,
manténgalos lejos de las áreas de
mucho tránsito y supervíselos
mientras hacen su viaje inaugural.
• Asegúrese de que los juguetes
que reciben de regalo sean
apropiados para la edad del niño y
su etapa de desarrollo. Y tenga en
mente a los niños pequeños
incluso al darle un regalo a sus
hermanos más grandes. “Cuando
usted le da un juguete a un niño,
se lo está dando a toda la familia,”
dice la Dra. Susan Scout, profesora
auxiliar de pediatría con
especialización en prevención de
lesiones.

Champions!!! Metro Slips by Adelphi for National Title
Goals come from MacDonald, Almaraz and Hanavan
The Metropolitan State College
of Denver women’s soccer team’s
(25-1) season culminated in the
greatest way today as the squad
defeated Adelphi University (204-1) 3-2 at the Midwestern State
University soccer field for the
2004 national championship. The
title is Metro State’s first women’s
soccer national championship and
the first collegiate soccer
championship in the state of
Colorado.
Junior midfielder Marina
MacDonald (Inverness, Scotland)
and senior midfielder Adrianne
Almaraz (Bakersfield, Colo.) each
recorded potential game winners
before sophomore forward Kylee
Hanavan (Thornton, Colo.)
finalized the game and a
championship with 39 seconds
remaining. Metro blasted the
Panthers for a 13-5 shot-on-goal
advantage, forcing Adelphi keeper
Christine Conway to make 10
saves through the match. The
Roadrunner’s year ends with the
team winning its final 23 games.
“For these young ladies to go
out and win a national
championship,” said head coach
Danny Sanchez. “They’re the
best in the country, and you can’t
take that away.”
For their efforts four women
from the Metro State squad were
named to the Championship AllTournament Team. Senior
midfielder Ymara Guante (Tucson,
Ariz.), junior back Stephanie
Prouty (Gig Harbor, Wash.),
Hanavan and MacDonald each
made the list. Prouty was also
named the tournament’s Most
Outstanding Defensive Player and
Hanavan given the title of Most
Outstanding Offensive Player.

scheduled
additional
performances of her “Farewell
Never Can Say Goodbye Tour,”
including a stop at the World Arena
on Wednesday February 2.
Very special guest Village People

Calling this her final touring
appearance on the concert stage,
Cher’s “Farewell Never Can Say
Goodbye Tour” is an incredible
spectacle, a hits-laden career
overview that traverses four
decades with signature tunes from
each era. "I Got You Babe,” “If I
Could Turn Back Time” and
“Believe” are part of glorious

New York Times, called “Flawless”
by Newsweek, “Everything a Cher
fan could want” by the Boston
Globe and a “Cher delight” by the
Houston
Chronicle,
this
extravaganza has lived up to the
diva’s promise to deliver fans “the
Cher-ist show on Earth.”

Children Theatre at PPCC, With a Visit
From Santa
Pikes Peak Community College
Acting students will perform the
play Just Like Us for
schoolchildren grades K-4 on
Saturday, December 11 at 11 a.m.
in the Centennial Campus Theatre,
5675 S. Academy Blvd. Santa
Claus will appear after the show
to meet the children. The play is
free; however, please bring a can
or two of food to donate to Care
and Share.
About the play: The production
is designed to introduce
elementary schoolchildren to
theatre. Just Like Us teaches a
critical lesson about prejudice in a
fun, non-preachy manner. The
story is told by an old tree, who
stands neglected in a park. On one
side of the park live the poetry
loving Greens. On the other side
of the park the Blues reside, where
they enjoy playing musical
instruments.
Sadly , there is nothing but
intolerance, fear and hatred
between the Greens and the Blues.
Why? No one quite remembers,
but these ingrained feelings
diminish the quality
of everybody’s
lives, including the
poor tree, who is
left abandoned in
the middle.
When a storm
brings the aqua and
purple Allina to the
park, both the
Greens and Blues
learn some eyeopening lessons
about each other
and about life.
This thoughtprovoking piece is
ideal for touring
and leaves the
audience ready to
launch
into
contemplative
discussions and
problem solving as
children explore
their own beliefs
about stereotyping
and prejudice.

Stay safe with Trooper Novotny
In this first article we will
discuss the recent changes to
Colorado’s child passenger safety
law, which became effective on
August 01, 2004. The change in
this law is intended to further
protect our children and reduce
injuries during traffic crashes.
The previous version of the
child safety law required children
from infant to four years old or
forty pounds to be in child restraint
seats. Colorado’s new law has
been expanded to include children
up to six years old or fifty-five
inches tall and addresses seat
positioning for maximum safety.
The new law requires infants to
ride in a rear-facing child safety
seat until they are at least one-yearold and weigh at least 20 pounds.
Children aged one to four years old
that weigh from 20 pounds up to
forty pounds must be restrained in
a forward-facing child seat.
Children between the ages of four
to six and less than fifty-five
inches tall are to be restrained
using booster seats.
Lastly, a child who is at least six
years old or at least fifty-five
inches tall and under the age of
sixteen must be properly restrained
with a safety belt regardless of
where they are seated in the
vehicle.
For maximum safety and
effectiveness, regarding child
safety seats, follow the
manufacturers’ instructions and
recommendations regarding use in
vehicles equipped with airbags.
For more information on child seat
safety
please
visit
www.carseatscolorado.com. The
next article will cover the new and
significantly changed teenage
graduated driver license process.
Please buckle up and drive safely.
Trooper Randy Novotny is with
the Colorado State Patrol (CSP)
and in a regular column will
address new , changing and clarify
existing laws. The State Patrol
wants to promote safety and keep
the community informed. That
goal begins with education.

¿Quién es Our Lady of Guadalupe?
In 1531 a “Lady from Heaven”
appeared to a poor Indian at
Tepeyac, a hill northwest of
Mexico City;
she identified herself as the
Mother of the True God,
instructed him to have the bishop
build a temple on the site and left
an image of herself imprinted
miraculously on his tilma, a poor
quality cactus-cloth, which
should have deteriorated in 20
years but shows no sign of decay
469 years later and still defies all
scientific explanations of its
origin.
Her message of love and
compassion, and her universal
promise of help and protection to
all mankind, as well as the story
of the apparitions, are described
in the “Nican Mopohua”, a 16th
century document written in the
native Nahuatl language.
There is reason to believe that
at Tepeyac Mary came in her
which makes this apparition very
special.
An incredible list of miracles,
cures and interventions are
attributed to Her.
Yearly, an estimated 10 million
visit her Basilica, making her
Mexico City home the most
popular Marian shrine in the
world, and the most visited
Catholic church in the world next
to the Vatican.
Altogether 24 popes have
officially honored Our Lady of
Guadalupe.
His Holiness John Paul II
visited her Sanctuary four times:
on his first apostolic trip outside
Rome as Pope in 1979, and again
in 1990, 1999 and 2002.
The Feast of Our Lady of
Guadalupe is celebrated on
December 12th.
In 1999, Pope John Paul II, in
his homily from the Solemn
Mass at the Basilica of Our Lady
of Guadalupe, during his third
visit to the sanctuary, declared
the date of December the 12th as
a Liturgical Holy Day for the
whole continent.
During the same visit Pope
John Paul II entrusted the cause
of life to her loving protection,
and placed under her motherly
care the innocent lives of
children, especially those who
are in danger of not being born.

to raise national awareness of the
increasing critical issues facing the

voice,” Cruz said. “Poverty
remains disproportionately high

addition, the Latino elderly, which
is increasingly becoming a larger

Directors will introduce Cruz at a
formal reception Nov. 30 from 6 8 pm at the Mexican Cultural
Institute, 2829 16th St. NW,
Washington, DC.
Charlie Mendoza, board
chairman of NHCOA, said Cruz
is the “right person at the right

6WDUW<RXU+HDOLQJ-RXUQH\7RGD\
6WDUW<RXU+HDOLQJ-RXUQH\7RGD\
underrepresented in health care
access.”
According to the US Census, the
number of elderly increased eleven
fold between 1900 and 1994, while
the general population has only
tripled. The number of elderly
among the Hispanic population,
which is expected to triple by
2050, will also swell. The
Hispanic elderly population is
expected to jump fourfold, from 4
percent of the total elderly
population in 1990 to 16 percent
by 2050, according to the US
Census.
“Many Americans are living
longer, and the health problems
facing Hispanics will only grow if
left untreated, crippling younger
generations and perhaps society,”
Cruz said.
Hispanic senior citizens face an
increasing number of chronic
illnesses, lack of housing, jobs and
the ability to buy food, clothing
and basic necessities, NHCOA
says. “For example, many Latinos
can’t afford basic prescription
drugs, so they are going to Tijuana
and other border towns to buy
medicine for less. But the quality
of medication there may not be the
best,” Cruz said. “We have to
address these and other problems.”
The health care industry also is
ill prepared to deal with the
demands of this emerging
population, including offering
culturally and linguistically
appropriate services. “We’re
calling on the government and
health care policymakers to help
us serve this population,” Cruz
said. “This is a crisis.”
To do its part, NHCOA brings
its national outreach to different
regions of the country. For
example, NHCOA offers low and
moderate income housing to older
Hispanics at Casa Iris in
Washington, DC, and Mira Vista
in Garden City, KS, to prevent
their premature and unnecessary
institutionalization.
“Many Latino elderly are falling
behind with technology,”
Mendoza said. “We need to help
educate them by reaching out to
them in their communities,
churches and groups and teach
them about computers so they can
communicate with their families
and government agencies on
Medicare and other critical
issues.” In Washington, Casa Iris
will begin offering classes soon so
Hispanic seniors can learn to use
a computer. “We’re going to put
15 computers into Casa Iris and
bring everyone there into the 21st
century,” Mendoza said. “We’re
hoping they will learn how to
communicate more inexpensively
and more frequently with their
family members.”
Family plays a central role for
Latinos and contributes to a
healthier and longer life for them
- nearly four years more than their
counterparts. The Latino culture
and lifestyle - including strong ties
to family and community and an
active spiritual and work life - are
positive influences in the health
status of elderly Latinos.

LEGAL NOTICE
LAS ANIMAS COUNTY DISTRICT COURT STATE OF COLORADO
200 East First Street, Room 304
Trinidad, CO 81082
Case No. 2004-PR-37
Coincidentally, the poverty rate
among California’s Hispanic
immigrants fell by almost 20
percent between 1990 and 2000,
paralleling the birth rate drop.
Nationally, the Hispanic birth rate
has droppedto 2.7 children per
woman from 2.9 in the 90s.
Coupled with the measurable
drops in Hispanic birth rates,
falling poverty, climbing
collective wealth (estimated
Hispanic income in 2010 is $1
trillion) and the emergence of
more Hispanic population growth
from native born than from
immigration, their urban myths
continue to fall by the truth
wayside, as well they must.
As President Ronald Reagan once
proclaimed, “Facts are stubborn
things.”

el director de información del
diario El Debate,
Juan Carlos Ramírez, el asesinato
podría estar eventualmente
relacionado con una nota
publicada el pasado 24 de
noviembre, en la que se
denunciaba la agresión, por parte
de dos individuos sospechosos de
estar implicados en el tráfico de
droga, de un médico que se negó
a curar a un herido que le habían
llevado a la consulta.
Sin embargo, el director ha
subrayado que no quiere hacer
especulaciones. Para él, los
autores también pudieron
equivocarse de persona.
Por otra parte, la redactora jefe,
Laura Béjar, ha precisado que al
fotógrafo se le requería
frecuentemente para que sacara
fotos de actos violentos,
relacionados con el tráfico de
droga.
A pesar de que hasta ahora
ninguno de sus reporteros había
sido víctima de amenazas, el
periódico ha pedido protección
policial para dos periodistas que
trabajan en la ciudad de Escuinapa.

access to information as dictated
by its mission and contract with
the public it serves.
The expectation of the
community for good government
– for responsible, sound financial
practices that support innovation
through careful planning – is being
met by the District.
Not in a vacuum, but by relying
on the participation of citizens in
all stages of the process: needs
assessment,
planning,
implementation, and evaluation.
The District incorporates
public input with technological
advances, new service delivery
models, and staff development to
reach its goals and objectives.
“As we look strategically at the
next five years, PPLD will focus
on the development of library
service to all citizens in our
community, including expansion
to Fountain, Briargate, and Falcon,
while preserving and improving
service to our core neighborhoods
throughout the District,” says
Aponte.
“Unfortunately, there are too
many examples in our community
where government services and
facilities are falling short of need.
It is our responsibility to do
whatever we can through creative
collaborations and innovative
organizational planning to fulfill
our statutory mandate to serve our
residents’ dynamic informational,
educational, and cultural needs”.
PPLD is actively improving its
libraries through modest
expansions and the introduction of
service automation, fiscally sound
answers to service challenges.
To that end, the Rockrimmon,
Ruth Holley, and Ute Pass Branch
Libraries have been expanded
while current plans include modest
growth in our Cheyenne Mountain
and Sand Creek facilities.
Self Check Out is one of the
new services allowing the District
to cover more ground. It offers
patrons a fast, user-friendly
experience with the support of
library personnel.
“The public no longer sees
librarians as just the ‘keepers of
knowledge’,” Aponte said.
Questions about the District’s
planning or the suit can be directed
to the
Pikes Peak Library District:

later (2:44) Guante was dragged
down in the box and awarded a
penalty-kick chance.
The nod went to Almaraz to take
the shot and she easily slid the ball
past a frozen Adelphi goalkeeper.
As the two sides battle back and
forth in the final 10 minutes each
team earned opportunities for a
tally, but it was the Panthers that
struck first with a place-kick goal
at 4:05.
Again the game was tied and the
squads played a new game for the
final few minutes. Just as the fans
were preparing to enter overtime,
Hanavan found the back of the net
after knocking in a rebounded
loose ball with 39 seconds
remaining.
Coach Sanchez’s overall record
improves to 65-5-4 (.929) at Metro
State.

Library looks to future following Court’s decision
The Pikes Peak Library District
(PPLD) has prevailed in the court
case filed against it a year ago in
El Paso County District Court.
Judge Thomas Kane of the Fourth
Judicial District granted the
motion for summary judgment
submitted by PPLD based on the
merits of the case, finding in favor
of the District on the three points
of the complaint:
• The District’s 1986 mill levy
authorization constituted voter
approval in advance for the
District’s subsequent mill levy
increases.
• The District has
substantially complied
with
TABOR’s
limitations on fiscal
year spending and
revenues for fiscal years
1999–2003.
• The District’s lease
and
purchase
agreements include
non-appropriation
clauses and do not,
therefore, equate to
multi-year
fiscal
obligations.
Administration and
staff at the Library are
encouraged by the
findings. “We are anxious to put
this case behind us and return to
the business of building capacity
and operating award-winning
libraries,” said Executive Director
José Aponte. “Our focus needs to
be on ensuring excellent service
and resources for everyone within
the District.”
The Plaintiff in the case has filed
a notice of appeal to have the
Colorado Court of Appeals review
the District Court’s decision. The
Library is confident that the
appellate courts will affirm the
District Court’s decision.
As both a special taxing district
and a public library, PPLD has two
critical levels of accountability to
the people of El Paso County. It
must
at
once
operate
conscientiously and deliberately
within legal mandates, and strive
always to ensure free and equal

Conservation Agreement Protects 80,000 Acres
Forbes, Inc. and Colorado Open
Lands announced that Forbes
Trinchera, Inc., a subsidiary of
Forbes, Inc., has donated a
conservation easement over the
Forbes Trinchera Ranch, in
Costilla County, Colorado.
The gift is the largest
conservation easement in
Colorado
history.
The
conservation easement, which
confines any future development,
will protect the vast 80,000-acre
property in perpetuity.
The spectacular Trinchera
property comprises the western
slope of the Sangre de Cristo
Mountains between the towns of
La Veta and Fort Garland, south
of Highway 160.
The Forbes Trinchera Ranch
includes Harrison, Napoleon,
Trinchera and Cuatro Peaks, and
is drained by the upper seven miles
of Trinchera Creek.
The Forbes Trinchera Ranch is
the largest remaining undeveloped
land parcel within the historic
Sangre de Cristo land grant, which
dates to 1843. Purchased by the
late Malcolm Forbes in 1969 as a
family retreat, the property has
been managed since that time to
maintain and enhance its
ecological values.
Christopher “Kip” Forbes, Vice
Chairman of Forbes, commented
on the decision saying, “The
possibilities and opportunities of
this conservation easement of
Trinchera Ranch are the
fulfillment of my family’s 30-year
dream to preserve this
extraordinary part of America.
Very rarely are one’s visions so
completely fulfilled.
“Our family is very grateful to Ty
Ryland, Trinchera’s manager, and
his father, Errol, who managed the
ranch before him. We are also
indebted to the incredible ranch
team, which has worked so long
and hard to maintain this amazing,
historic property.
“We also wish to thank Colorado
Open Lands and all the people who
worked so diligently to create this
important effort on behalf of
conservation
for
future
generations.”
The Forbes Trinchera Ranch
dominates the east-facing views
from Fort Garland and the
southern San Luis Valley with
views of snow-capped peaks, vast
expanses of conifer forest
interspersed in autumn with
golden aspen and cottonwoods,
and broad grassland valleys. The
ranch’s size, elevation and climate
contain a rich diversity of
ecotypes, from alpine tundra to
subalpine forests, pinon-juniper,
cottonwood riparian systems, and
forbes and grasses. Wildlife,
particularly big-game species, are
abundant, including elk, big-horn
sheep, mule deer, black bear and
lion. Bald and Golden eagles
frequent the property and trout
populate the drainages.
Daniel Pike, President of
Colorado Open Lands, said, “The
Forbes Trinchera Ranch is a jewel.
Few properties of this size and
diversity exist in the United States,
let alone Colorado. Protecting a
Ranch such as this is a rare
opportunity. The Forbes family has
preserved something truly unique
for all of us.”
Management of the property
under the conservation easement
will continue largely as it has in
the recent past.
A forest management plan,
prepared by the State of Colorado
and designed to enhance
ecological and wildlife values, is
already in place. Wildlife is
managed in accordance with
agreements with the Colorado
Division of Wildlife.
An active program to restore
and enhance native grasses has
been under way for several years,
and will continue. Use of an
existing conference center and
hunting lodge will also continue.
