America’s Immigration
Quandary
This week at the 22nd
National Space Symposium,
the Space Foundation released
a white paper addressing
concerns about the health of
sub-prime contractors of the
national security space
industrial base. The release of
the paper, “National Security
Space
Industrial
Base:
Understanding and Addressing
Concerns at the Sub-prime
Contractor Level.”
Both the Air Force and the
prime defense contractors
have raised concerns about the
performance and viability of
the sub-prime contractors in
the space industrial base. The
Space Foundation examined a
number of factors affecting the
health of this segment of the
industrial base including
instability in the workflow,
limited markets due to
stagnation and decline of the
commercial satellite and
launch markets, export
controls and the low profit
margins that result from these
factors.
These challenges are evident
in a number of sub-prime
contractors having problems
with quality and schedules.
Ultimately, many are exiting
the sector and in some areas
there are few if any domestic
suppliers of critical national
security space components left
operating. This process is
expected to accelerate unless
action is taken to reverse it.
To address these problems,
the Space Foundation offered a
number of recommendations.
First and foremost, the
Foundation recommended a
comprehensive quantitative
assessment of the health of this
sector and the actual impact of
export controls. Once a
reasonable assessment is
accomplished, the Foundation
recommends the Air Force, as
the Department of Defense’s
executive agent for space,
devise a management plan for
the space industrial base.
“Improving the viability and
performance of the lower tiers
of the national security space
industrial base requires, more
than anything else, improving
the profit margins for these
businesses,” says Jay DeFrank,
the Space Foundation’s director
of Research and Analysis
enterprise and the study’s
author.
“Achieving this mandates a
more
stable
business
environment, increasing
overall market opportunities,
reducing overhead and
providing
incentives,”
DeFrank said.
The full report is available at
<www.SpaceFoundation.org/
policy/spacebase.shtml>
The National Space
Symposium is the premier
annual space industry
conference and draws the
most senior leaders from all
sectors of the global space
industry - civil, commercial,
and national security. More
than 7,000 registrants, guests,
speakers, exhibitors, and
media are expected to attend
the symposium, which takes
place Apr 3-6, 2006, at The
Broadmoor in Colorado
Springs.
The symposium Web site
<www.NationalSpaceSymposium.org>
features
twice-daily
summaries of the programs
and sessions, a live webcam of
the exhibit center, daily
postings of photographs, a
complete agenda, and lists of
speakers, sponsors, and

Americans are increasingly
concerned about immigration.
The public is split over many
of the policy proposals aimed
at dealing with the estimated
11.5 million-12 million
unauthorized migrants in the
US. Overall, 53% say people
who are in the US illegally
should be required to go home,
while 40% say they should be
granted some kind of legal
status that allows them to stay
here.
The Bases of Ambivalence
The survey finds a number of
opinions about immigrants
that may well contribute to
ambivalent attitudes toward
immigration, especially in
areas where immigrants are
most numerous. First, attitudes
toward both Latin American
and Asian immigrants are
more positive now than in the
1990s, even as concern over the
problems associated with
immigration has increased.
Both
groups
are
overwhelmingly seen as very
hard working and having
strong
family
values.
Impressions of Latin American
immigrants, in particular, have
grown much more positive,
with 80% describing them as
very hard working compared
with 63% nearly a decade ago.
Moreover, native-born
Americans who live in areas
with the highest concentration
of immigrants hold more
positive opinions of them.
However, Americans living in
areas with more immigrants
rank immigration as a bigger
community problem.
Policy Solutions
The public’s divisions over
illegal immigration are
mirrored in views of legal
immigration; 40% say the
current level should be
decreased, but almost the same
number (37%) believe it should
be kept at its present level,
while 17% prefer to see it
increased.
But it is illegal immigration,
far
more
than
legal
immigration, that stirs public
anxiety. Six-in-ten say illegal
immigration represents a
bigger problem than legal
immigration. Just 4% say the
opposite – that legal
immigration is a bigger
problem – though nearly a
quarter (22%) says both forms
of immigration are equally
problematic.
The Proximity Factor

ASC Scholarships assist students with financial need
The Adams State College
Office of Financial Aid starts
the process of awarding
institution scholarships this
week.
Morgan Ramsey-Daniel,
scholarship coordinator, said
they received approximately
615 students turned in
scholarship applications. The
scholarship deadline was Mar
1.
“We receive about two dozen
applications, on average, for
each scholarship. And for
some scholarships we receive
over 100 applications,”
Ramsey-Daniel said. “There
are about 415 total slots for
scholarships.” That includes
institution and Adams State
College
Foundation
scholarship, but does not
include athletic awards or
federal/ state grants.
Some of the scholarships
are awarded to only one or
two individuals, however a
few award to more students.

scholarship,” Ramsey-Daniel
said. She said she believes
about 200 student will receive
an institutional scholarship,
such as the Good Neighbor
and
First
Generation
Scholarships. These have
separate applications from the
Foundation Scholarships.
Institutional scholarships are
established strictly for students
attending Adams State
College.
According to Ramsey-Daniel
students who apply for FASFA
early and get their scholarship
applications in early are more
apt to receive financial aid.
“There is only so much money
to distribute among all
students. Even though we
don’t like to, sometimes it is a
first-come first-serve basis,”
Ramsey-Daniel said.
Adams State College
Foundation scholarships range
from $100 to covering tuition,
fees and books for an entire
year.
The
President’s
scholarship was scaled down
the past year due to funding
cuts at the state level.
Phil Schroeder, director of
Financial Aid, said the cuts
may have a potential offset by
a new federal grant program.
“A new federal law creates a

ETA: de la metralleta a la
papeleta?
Por Isaac Bigio
El ETA ha anunciado el cese
definitivo a sus acciones
armadas y el inicio de un
proceso que podria llevarle a
auto-esarmarse siguiendo el
sendero de sus hermanos
nacionalistas del Ejecito
Republicano Irlandes (IRA).
De esta manera en Europa
occidental
se
estarian
‘domesticando’ las dos
grandes subversiones armadas
que le acosaron desde los
anhos
sesentas.
Las
insurgencias nacionalistas en el
Estado Espanhol y en el Reino
Unido reclamaban que los
mayores
imperios
ultramarinos de la historia, si
bien se habian retirado de casi
todas sus colonias en otros
continentes, aun seguian
‘oprimiendo’ a sus naciones
contiguas.
El nacionalismo vasco insiste
en la singularidad de su lengua
y cultura, en la terrible
persecucion que sufrieron bajo
el franquismo y en su
aspiracion a entrar en la Union
Europea como un pais
independiente.
El nacionalismo pan-irlandes
sostiene que los seis condados
del norte fueron separados a
inicios de los 1920s de la
naciente republica de Irlanda
para garantizar un enclave
protestante britanico que se
basa en la opresion a los
irlandeses oiundos y catolicos.
Tanto el ETA como el IRA
fueron captando apoyo con sus
bombazos en los sesentas.
Sostenian defender a sus
comunidades contra los
atropellos de Madrid o
Londres y postulaban una
‘lucha
armada’
hasta
descolonizar sus tierras e
instaurar alli republicas
socialistas que pudiesen unir a
los irlandeses y vascos que
estaban al otro lado de la
frontera.
A diferencia de las guerrillas
de ‘liberacion nacional’ del
Tercer Mundo en las cuales
ellos decian inspirarse, el ETA
y el IRA actuaban en
sociedades
modernas,
industralizadas y urbanas. Se
enfrentaban directamente a los
grandes aparatos militaresy de
inteligencia de grandes
potencias.
Ambos lograron controlar
barrios y aldeas, crear activas
guerrillas urbanas, realizar
atentados audaces y crear una
base social legal basada en
activistas sindicales y, sobre
todo, en un partido lgal que
competia en las elecciones y qe
sacaba al menos un octavo de
los votos (el Sin Feinn en
Irlanda del norte y diverso
agrupamientos vascos que
remplazaban a los que la Corte
espanhola ilegalizaba).
En los setentas el ETA y el
IRA se dividen entre los que
postulan una via mas politica
y otra mas militar. A pesar que
los segundos llegan a quedar
en minoria, estos acaban
quedandose con la sigla y con
el grueso de la influencia.
Hoy, nuevamente las
direcciones del ETA y el IRA
vienen apostando por un curso
mas politico, pero esta vez los
rebeldes militaristas tienen
menor
capacidad
de
convocatoia.
La escena internacional ha
ido cambiando y empuja a
estos movimientos a ir
optando mas por la via de las
urnas que de las armas.
Tanto Irlanda del Norte como
el Pais Vasco han venido
conociendo mayores margenes
de autonomia. La participacion
de los sectores pro-ETA y proIRA en las elecciones y los
municipios les ha ido
acercandose a acoplarse a una
democraca multi-partidaria y
ha generado que otros
movimientos nacionalistas
‘moderados’ (como el SDLP
nor-irlandes o el PNV vasco)
les presionen para buscar un
camino
negociado.
El
desarrollo de la Union Europea
crea un marco para que las
naciones atrapadas en otros
Estados mayoritarios puedan
llegar a esta comunidad
economica y politica con
gobiernos regionales.

El valor de las comidas de grano entero en la lucha contra la grasa
El pan tostado crujiente de
grano entero y otras comidas
de grano entero ya son
conocidos por ayudar a
mantener niveles saludables
de ciertas grasas en el cuerpo
humano.
Un
estudio
preliminar dirigido por la
química Nancy L. Keim del
Servicio de Investigación
Agrícola (ARS) provee nuevos
detalles sobre cómo los granos
enteros hacen eso.
Las pautas nacionales
recomiendan el consumo de
por lo menos tres porciones de
comidas de grano entero cada
día. Pero la mayoría de
estadounidenses consiguen
menos de una sola porción
diariamente.
Keim, con el Centro
Occidental de Investigación de
Nutrición Humana mantenido
por ARS en Davis, California,
y sus colegas de la Universidad
de California-Davis trabajaron
con 10 voluntarias sanas, de
edades entre 20 a 45, para el
estudio.
Las voluntarias participaron
en dos regímenes separados de
3 días, uno con comidas altas
en granos enteros y otro con
comidas hechas de granos
refinados.
Cuando participando en el
régimen de granos enteros, por
ejemplo, las mujeres comieron
un saltado de pollo y cebada
perlada-en vez de arroz
blanco-para la cena.
Después de la terminación de
cada uno de los regímenes, las
voluntarias tomaron un
desayuno experimental en el
laboratorio.
En ese día, las voluntarias
dieron una muestra de sangre
antes de comer y también tres
veces adicionales durante el
día.

El fin de la guerra fria ha
cambiado totalmente al
mundo.
Los ‘movimientos de
liberacion nacional’ ya no tine
una potencia sovietica que les
proteja o sirva de contrapeso.
Cuba y Libia han decidido
dejar
de
apadrinar
insurgencias para lograr ir
siendo aceptadas por la UE. El
grueso de las antiguas
guerrillas de origen marxista se
han ido desarmando y
aceptando lo que antes ellos
denominaban
como
la
‘democracia burguesa’ y el
‘capitalismo’.
Por ultimo, uno de los
factores que ha galvanizado la
evolucion del IRA y del ETA ha
sido el que el Atlantico Norte
por primera vez vaya siendo
golpeado por los macroatentados perpetrados por
fundamentalistas islamicos
oriundos del Medio Oriente.
Estos, en vez de haber alentado
a que se radicalizasen los
grupos subversivos ‘nativos’
de la region (como lo son el
IRA y el ETA), genero lo
opuesto.

todas las clases, etnias y credos
fue generando una masiva
repulsa contra el ‘terrorismo’ y
a que varios de los sectores
sociales que apoyaban al IRA
y al ETA les vayan pidiendo un
giro.
Los atentados de Al Qaeda
sirvieron de justificacion para
que Bush se consolidase y
lanzace su ofensiva mundial
contra el terror. La captura de
Kabul y Bagdad, en vez de
haber derrotado a Al Qaeda, ha
logrado legitimizar y potenciar
a esta en el mundo musulman
y ha alentado a que los
fundamentalistas islamicos
mas intransigentes ganen la
presidencia en Iran y Palestina,
y que avancen en Afganistan e
Iraq. Por otra parte, el rechazo
popular a los macro-atentados
de Nueva York, Washington,
Madrid y Londres ha logrado
ir presionando al IRA y al ETA
a que vayan abriendo un
proceso pro-paz y prodesarme.

NOTICIAS EN ESPANOL
La Comisionada Barnhart
anuncia el nuevo proceso
del Seguro Social
Jo Anne Barnhart,
Comisionada del Seguro Social,
emitió una regla final que
establece un nuevo proceso de
determinación de incapacidad.
El nuevo proceso, incorporado
sobre el proceso electrónico de
reclamaciones de incapacidad
del Seguro Social, acortará el
tiempo de decisiones y pagará
beneficios a las personas que
están obviamente incapacitadas
mucho más antes en el
proceso.
“Los cambios que estamos
haciendo en el proceso de
incapacidad
mejorarán
enormemente la calidad de
servicio que el Seguro Social
provee a millones de
trabajadores incapacitados y a
sus familias”, dijo la
Comisionada Barnhart. “El
nuevo proceso usa la
tecnología del siglo 21 y crea
responsabilidad en cada paso.
Éste refleja mis metas de
mejorar
la
exactitud,
consistencia e imparcialidad
de nuestro proceso y asegura
que hagamos la decisión
correcta tan temprano en el
proceso como sea posible.”
El nuevo proceso de
incapacidad provee:
•
Un
proceso
de
determinación de incapacidad
rápido para aquellas personas
que están obviamente
incapacitadas. Se harán
decisiones favorables en tales
casos dentro de 20 días
después que se reciba la
reclamación por la agencia
estatal de determinación de
incapacidad.
• Un nuevo Sistema de
Experto Médico y Vocacional
(MVES, sus siglas en inglés)
para mejorar la pericia
necesaria para hacer decisiones
exactas y a tiempo. Este
sistema estará compuesto de
una Unidad de Expertos
Médicos y Vocacionales y una
red nacional de expertos
médicos, psicológicos y
vocacionales que cumplen con
los niveles de requisitos
establecidos
por
la
Comisionada.
• Una posición nueva — el
Oficial Federal de Revisión —
que
revisará
las
determinaciones de la agencia
estatal cuando lo pida el
reclamante. Esto eliminará el
paso de reconsideración del
proceso de apelación actual.
• Retención del derecho a
pedir una nueva audiencia y
decisión de un Juez de Derecho
Administrativo
si
el
reclamante no está de acuerdo
con la decisión del Oficial
Federal de Revisión.
• Cerrar el expediente después
que el Juez de Derecho
Administrativo emita una
decisión, con la provisión de
ciertas excepciones a esta regla
debido a una buena causa.
• Un nuevo organismo — un
Consejo de Revisión de
Decisiones — para revisar y
corregir errores en las
decisiones y asegurar la
adjudicación consistente en
todos los niveles del proceso de
determinación de incapacidad.
El Consejo de Apelaciones
actual
se
eliminará
gradualmente.
El Seguro Social planifica
escalonar el nuevo proceso de
región a región comenzando
con la Región de Boston este
verano. La Región de Boston
consiste de los estados de
Connecticut,
Maine,
Massachussets,
Nuevo
Hampshire, Rhode Island y
Vermont.
El nuevo proceso de
incapacidad es el resultado de
un esfuerzo común que
comenzó
durante
una
discusión que tuvo la
Comisionada Barnhart con el
Presidente Bush al principio de
su mandato. El 25 de
septiembre de 2003, la
Comisionada
Barnhart
presentó al Congreso una
propuesta para mejorar el
proceso de incapacidad. Desde
entonces, la Comisionada
Barnhart y el personal de la
agencia llevaron a cabo cientos
de reuniones con grupos y
personas interesadas. El
Seguro
Social
también
consideró cuidadosamente casi
900 sugerencias recibidas
durante un período de 90 días
de comentarios públicos,
después de la publicación de
una regulación propuesta para
mejorar el proceso de
incapacidad el 27 de julio de
2005.
“Los comentarios que
recibimos durante nuestro
extensivo esfuerzo de informar
a las personas y grupos
interesados, y en respuesta a
nuestra regla propuesta,
fueron extremadamente útiles
y muy apreciados”, dijo la
Comisionada Barnhart. “Yo
estaba muy impresionada con
el profesionalismo, tiempo y
esfuerzo que los grupos
interesados pusieron en sus
sugerencias. Yo pienso, que
como resultado de ello, hemos
mejorado la regla final.”
El preámbulo a la regla final
explica los cambios que se
hicieron a la regulación
propuesta como resultado a los
comentarios que la agencia
recibió. Para asegurar que las
discusiones y el mejor
entendimiento continúen aún
después de la implementación
de la regla final, el preámbulo
también indica que el Seguro
Social piensa continuar
reuniéndose con los grupos
interesados mientras el nuevo
proceso es introducido.
En conjunto con los cambios
en el proceso de determinación
de incapacidad, el Seguro
Social está conduciendo varios
proyectos de demostración,
dirigidos a ayudar a las
personas con incapacidades
que están interesadas en
trabajar. Estos proyectos
apoyan la iniciativa del
Presidente de Nueva Libertad
y provee para incentivos de
trabajo y oportunidades más
temprano en el proceso. En
estas demostraciones, la
agencia
examinará
proveyendo apoyo en efectivo,
varias formas de beneficios
médicos, y apoyo de empleo
tal
como
ayuda
de
transportación. El Seguro
Social estudiará cómo el hacer
éstos disponible, ayudará a
que las personas con
incapacidades trabajen con
éxito.
“Desde el principio, he
estado comprometida a
desarrollar un proceso de
determinación de incapacidad
que provea el nivel de servicio
que las personas esperan y
merecen”, dijo la Comisionada
Barnhart. “Estoy segura que
esta regla hará eso.”

NEGOCIOS-BUSINESS
PLUS loan now available for graduate and professional students
American Education
Services (AES) announced it
will be offering a fast and easy
PLUS loan process to graduate
and professional students
available as a result of the
changes outlined in the Higher
Education Reconciliation Act
(HERA). AES lender partners
offer the nation’s best benefits
to parents and are now
extending those savings on to
graduate and professional
students using the AES PLUS
loan process. Graduate and
professional students are
eligible for PLUS loans
certified on or after Jul 1, 2006
.
AES has a long history of
providing automated PLUS
loan processing for parents
and is now excited to include
graduate and professional
students. The Graduate and
Professional PLUS loan will
supplement
borrowers’
Stafford loans, saving them
thousands
of
dollars,
compared to other private
loans.
“We are very pleased to be
able to assist graduate and
professional students with
their education costs,” said
AES President and CEO, Dick
Willey. “The PLUS loan offers
borrowers many benefits –
including covering the one
percent federal default fee on
their student loan.”
Graduate and professional
students and parents will be
able to take advantage of the
AES Instant Credit Check loan
pre-approval program either at
aesSuccess.org or by calling 1800-692-7392. Another service
offered to our school partners
is credit decision results via
email to help speed up the
certification process. Our
PLUS loan process will help
supplement our lender
partners who offer the nations
best PLUS loan benefits.
Recently it was announced
that AES will subsidize the
mandatory federal default fee,
through at least Jun 30, 2007,
on all Stafford, Parent PLUS
and Graduate and Professional
PLUS loans. AES has not
charged the one-percent fee on
its loans since 1996 when it
adopted its Zero Guaranty Fee,
saving borrowers nearly $350
million in up-front costs.
Other benefits now offered to
Graduate and Professional
PLUS loan borrowers and
schools are:
• Single statement billing with
other AES-serviced Stafford
loans.
• Schools can certify loans
using the OneLINK guarantee,
disbursement and loan
servicing system absolutely
free.
• Borrowers can apply online
Are you “House Poor”?
The so-called American
dream includes a new home,
fancy car and white picket
fence. While this vision may
not come true for many of us,
it is worth striving for. So,
what happens when the
dreams cloud your reality, and
you end up with much more
than you bargained for?
Mike Sullivan, director of
education for Take Charge
America, a non-profit credit
counseling company, says a
home is one of the most
important investments you
can make, but buying the
wrong home could put you in
the poor house for a very long
time.
“Ruining your cr edit to buy
a home is not worth the longterm repercussions,” he
advises. “It is vitally
important to live within your
means in order to build your
credit.”
Sullivan has five tips you need to
know about buying a home:
• More Than a Mortgage –
Traditionally, your mortgage
payment should be no more
than 28 percent of your
income. Your total mortgage
payment, combined with your
monthly debt payments,
should not exceed 36 percent
of your income. But keep in
mind, a mortgage is only part
of the picture. Befor e buying
a home, investigate what the
common utility bills are when
the home is fully occupied.
You also need to take into
account other expenses like
yard and pool maintenance, as
well
as
unexpected
maintenance and repairs.
• Sell & Downsize – If you have
already fallen victim totoo
much house, or perhaps the
kids have moved out, it is time
to reevaluate your housing
needs, rather than your
housing wants. Consider
selling your home and
downsizing. Do you r eally
need two guest rooms? Do you
need a pool?
• Get a Roommate – If you are
living slightly outside your
means, or you are trying to
save up money, getting a
roommate could be a simple
solution. If you place an ad for
a roommate, check their credit
report and perform a
background check. The fee
associated with these reports
will be well worth the peace of
mind and potential hassles in
the long run. Don’t get
scammed! Always have a
roommate sign a lease, which
protects both parties.
• Refinance – Refinancing your
home can reduce monthly
payments. In addition, you
could eliminate mortgage
insurance, escrow payments or
get extra cash. However , the
amount of money you save
depends on your total
refinancing costs, whether you
plan to sell your home in the
near future and the effects of
refinancing on your taxes. T alk
with a lender or credit
counselor before making this
move. Of course, the better
your credit score, the better
chance you have of obtaining
the lowest interest rate.
• Don’t Cash Out All the Equity
– Cashing out the equity in
your home to pay off other bills
sounds tempting, but it’s not a
good idea. Homeowners who
cash out usually end up paying
more in the long run because
their payments are stretched
out over a longer time period.
To learn more about TCA or
its programs please call 1-800823-7396
or
visit
<www.takechargeamerica.org>
using the hassle-free Master
Promissory Note (MPN) esignature process.
Students can also see costsaving benefits through the
AES-exclusive relationship
with Upromise. Borrowers can
repay their loans faster with
the rebates on purchases from
the tens of thousands of
participating businesses.
Borrowers with AES-serviced
student loans can continue to
make their everyday purchases
and receive rebates that will be
automatically applied to their
student loan balance. To signup for this free service, visit

Moon Villalobos
“Hello my name is Moon
Villalobos. I am 25 years old
and was recently honorably
discharged from the US Army
as a Sgt. I served 6 years in the
military, twice in Iraq. During
this time I had a lot of time to
think about goals that I wanted
to accomplish.
It has always been my dream
to ride across America. While
searching online about biking
across the US, I came across
American Lung Association® of
Washington and thought what
an even better way to fullfill a
dream-is helping others at the
same time. I will be riding my
bike across the United States
for the American Lung
Association® this summer,
from Seattle to DC...3,300 miles
in 48 days!
For those of you who know
me, know I am a biking
enthusiast (or fool as some of
you might put it) and I enjoy
helping others. Your support
would be greatly appreciated
in helping me raise money for
the cause. The funds raised go
to support research to find
cures for lung diseases such as
lung cancer, emphysema and
asthma.
They provide educational
programs to help children with
asthma live happy, productive
lives. The help teach children
to make informed decisions
about smoking. I know it is in
your heart to give. We can do
this together. If you make a
contribution, I will do the
pedaling. My plans to do this
last year didn’t work out. The
timing of getting out of the
Army did not allow me to do
it. The money I raised last year
I passed on to another rider to
help them reach their goal. My
sponsors from last year were
very understanding. But this IS
the year!! Thank you for your
generous donation. - Moon
A good friend and biggest
contributor, Josh Terando (aka
Scrumpy) was killed by a sniper
while serving just a few months
of his year tour in Iraq. His
parents made another large
donation in his honor. I will be
riding for him. He is greatly
missed.”

Ochoa lets Kraft Nabisco Get Away
It seemed as

Lorena
Ochoa was on her
way to victory this
past Sunday, she
started
the
tournament with a
blazing 62, it looked

her way.
Then
crazy
things
happened. Karrie

interesting when
she holed out with

from 116 yards out.
By Sunday
evening, it was
different
story.
Ochoa, who led the
tournament for 66
holes before her
driver failed her on
the back nine, sunk
an 8-foot eagle putt
after a clutch 5wood from 225
yards out over
water to force a

Donates thousands to Su Teatro’s XicanIndie Film Fest
The Gay & Lesbian Fund for
Colorado has donated $10,000
to El Centro Su Teatro in
support of Su Teatro’s 8th
Annual XicanIndie Film

the world to Denver. The
festival will be held Apr 6-9 at
the Starz Film Center.
This year ’s XicanIndie Film

preserve it, we must nurture it
through artistic expression.
The XicanIndie Film Fest is an
ideal venue for sharing
Chicano culture from many
different perspectives,” said
Tony Garcia, El Centro Su
Teatro’s executive artistic

vital component of our state’s
history, cultural heritage and
social and economic make-up.

and make lasting connections
with their roots,” said Mary

2006 Jetta continues to
bring new advancements
to drivers
The 2006 Jetta is fresh off its
complete redesign launched in
March 2005. For 2006 the Jetta
lineup now includes an allnew GLI concept as well as a
sophisticated TDI® diesel
option and a 200 horsepower
optional engine choice.
The GLI is the most distinct
performance version of the
Jetta ever. The GLI is the
answer to the call of drivers
who desire the German
engineering and design of
Volkswagen with more
attitude, sportiness, and
overall dynamic features. The
fact that it comes with four
doors – well, that’s just bonus
points.
The GLI infuses pure
e n t h u s i a s t
pleasure into the
entire Jetta line-up.
The 2006 Jetta
Value Edition,
Jetta 2.5, Jetta 2.0T, Jetta
TDI and the GLI have set new
standards in the compact class
with a fresh all-new design in
2005.
In North America, the Jetta
accounts for nearly 40 percent
of the Volkswagen brand sales.
The 2005 redesign makes this

models in nearly every
dimension including occupant
space, legroom and trunk
volume. Passenger volume is
up to 91 cubic foot from 87 cu.
ft. last year, with more headand legroom. Cargo volume
increases nearly 20% to 16 cu.
ft.
The 2006 Jetta has fresh
styling that incorporates the
large, shield-shaped radiator
grille that is the unmistakable,
stylish and progressive new
“face” of Volkswagen. Side
window lower edges slope
slightly upwards toward the
rear, from and to more athletic
haunches, and new large
headlamps and tail lamps are
pushed out to the corners.
Among the technological
advancements that make the
Jetta standard equipment list
are a new four-wheel
independent suspension,
electro-mechanical steering,
newly developed engines, and
a new, high-tech six-speed
automatic transmission.
The 2006 Jetta 2.0T features
one of the newest and most
advanced
Volkswagen
engines. The all-new 2.0-liter
turbocharged inline fourcylinder engine puts out 200
hp between 5,500-6,000
revolutions per minute, and
maximum torque of 207 lbs.-ft.
from 1,800-4,700 rpm.

multifunction steering wheel
and leather shift knob and
handbrake grip. A trip
computer and adjustable
footwell lighting are also
included.
The 2006 Jetta Value Edition

standard equipment list. Air
conditioning, cruise control,
CD player, traction control,
four-wheel anti-lock disc
brakes, eight-way adjustable
seconds, with a top speed
electronically limited to 130
mph. Equally as impressive as
its performance on the street,
the 2006 Jetta 2.0T achieves an
EPA-rated fuel economy of up
to 32 mpg on the highway and
up to 25 mpg in city driving.
Standard equipment on the
2006 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0T
includes (to name a few) a
power sunroof, heatable front
seats, heatable windshield
washer nozzles, and 16-inch
alloy wheels and all-season
tires. A new six-speed Direct
Shift
Gearbox
(DSG¿)
automatic transmission is
available as an option.
In addition there are three
model-exclusive packages of
options for the new Jetta 2.0T.
“Package 1” adds Climatronic¿
dual-zone climate control,
leather seating surfaces, power
driver seat with position
memory, and genuine “Tamo”
Ash wood interior trim.
Option “Package 2” adds
Xenon headlights and 17-inch
summer performance tires and

electronic rear parking assist,
HomeLink¿, “puddle” lights, a
tire pressure monitoring
system and a manual rear
sunshade.
The 2006 Jetta 2.0T presents
a well-appointed sedan for
drivers
seeking
sportperformance. For drivers
wanting value-performance,
the Jetta 2.5 and Jetta Value
Edition are both equipped with
a
new
engine
from
Volkswagen. This new 2.5-liter,
fivecylinder
engine
is
economical and far from
anemic, putting out 150 hp at
5,000 rpm and 170 lbs.-ft. of
torque at 3,750 rpm.
The 2006 Jetta 2.5 and Jetta
Value Edition come standard
with a five-speed manual
transmission. The new

Tiptronic® is available as an
option. In either set-up, 0-60
mph comes in 9.0 seconds and
the EPA fuel mileage rating is
30 mpg on the highway and 22
mpg in the city.
In certain markets, the Jetta
2.5 is available as a Partial Zero
Emissions Vehicle (PZEV). In
all cases, the 2006 Volkswagen
Jetta 2.5 offers two packages of
options. Option “Package 1”
adds a power sunroof, heatable
front
seats,
heatable
front seats with height, angle
and

10 power foods to beat
diabetes
By Glenn Mueller
When you are trying to
balance your blood sugar, it is
important to eat plenty of
healing foods. In fact, you’ll be
amazed at how many of them
you can find in the aisles of
your local grocery store. The
following diabetes-beating

power foods were among
those featured in the recent
book Healing Gourmet Eat To
Beat Diabetes.
Apples: As it turns out, an
apple a day might be just the
thing you need to keep the
doctor away. When it comes to
beating diabetes, there is
nothing forbidden about this
particular fruit. Since they are
grown in temperate zones
around the world, apples come
in thousands of different
varieties. But, whatever type of
apple you choose, you will get
the maximum health benefits
by including the peel in your
healthy snack. Apple peels
contain quercetin, a flavanoid
that has been found to reduce
diabetes due to its antioxidant
effect.

these sea creatures help protect
your heart, but the omega-3
fatty acids can also help
balance your blood sugar
levels.
Nuts: Even though they have
been cultivated for more than
twelve thousand years, nuts
are still one of nature’s richest
foods. Since they are packed
with minerals and healthy fats,
incorporating healthy portions
of nuts into your meal plan can
help protect your heart and
balance your blood sugar.
You’d have to be crazy not to
eat them.
Oranges: Orange you glad
that the world’s most popular
citrus fruit has a low rating on
the Glycemic Index? Oranges
are also a source of many other
phtonutrients that can help
you fight diabetes, including
flavonoids,
carotenoids,
terpines,
pectins
and

Soybeans: Oh say, can you
soy? Not only are these
members of the legume family
a complete source of protein,
but soybeans also provide
phytoestrogens, isoflavones
and saponins that can help
balance your blood sugar.
Tea: Tea time may be the

substance by yourself, tea has
phytonutrients such as

Asparagus: Though it is a
member of the lily family, the
edible part of the asparagus
plant is actually a sprout or
shoot
that
appears
underground. Asparagus is an
excellent source of glutathione,
an antioxidant compound that
can help keep your blood
sugar stable.
Beans: Not only are they good
for the heart, but these
members of the legume family
also contain many different
phytonutrients that can help
you manage your battle
against diabetes. Though dried
beans are the healthiest choice,
you must soak them in water
for several hours before
cooking.
Broccoli: President George
Herbert Walker Bush may have
banned this cruciferous
vegetable from the White
House menu, but broccoli is
also an excellent source of
quercetin.
These days most broccoli is
green, but purple, red, cream
and brown varieties were also

When one of the first words to
come out of your daughter’s
mouth is “chips” (and she’s too
young to know who Erik
Estrada is), you begin to
wonder what kind of eating
habits lay ahead for her.
It is a problem millions of
American parents face, as their
kids grow more and more
chubby. Poor nutrition and
inadequate exercise only make
the dilemma worse, driving
the US Surgeon General to
declare childhood obesity a
national epidemic.
As a board certified Family
Physician, and one of only a
handful of Bariatric Physicians
nationwide specializing in
weight management, I hear the
horror stories of severely
clogged arteries in boys as
young as 15. That’s no mere
case of “baby fat: - it’s a
potentially deadly condition.
Such childhood obesity grows
up into adult heart disease,
diabetes, kidney ailments and
other lethal complications. It
can make a parent worry about
her little one.
When I began seeing an
alarming number of parents
bring their children to me for
help, I wrote the book, Helping
your Overweight Child: A Family
Guide. I wanted a useful, easyto-read guide to aid concerned
parents looking to ensure their
child’s health and fitness. In
the book, I discuss nutrition,
exercise, emotional well-being
and provide extensive lists of
healthier
grocery
and
restaurant food choices.
A 2001 study by the Center
for Disease Control found that
nearly 1/3 of our nation’s kids
fit the medical definition of
“obese.” That same CDC
examination tracked an
alarming rise in the number of
childhood diseases associated
with excess weight.
Fortunately, there is hope for
parents concerned about their
children’s health because
doctors and other health
professionals are aware of the
problem, and we’ve developed
proven clinical means to get
our kids fit.
While genetics plays a role in
causing
the
condition,
unhealthy habits such as the
consumption of fatty fast food
and sugary soft drinks, along
with a lack of cardiovascular
activity, are significant

Scholarship honors medical staff
The Parkview Foundation
and Parkview Medical Staff
Services have partnered, for
the seventh year in a row, to
offer a scholarship to celebrate
Parkview’s medical staff in
honor of National Doctor ’s
Day, Mar 30, 2006.
“This scholarship is an
opportunity to recognize our
physicians annually,” said
Nick Alsever, MD, Parkview’s
medical affairs vice president.
National Doctor’s Day is an
opportunity to pay tribute to
the physicians who, all too
often, perform a thankless job.
This scholarship is a small
token of gratitude that
Parkview gives to its
extraordinary medical staff.
Each year, the scholarship is
named in memory of a
physician whose skill and
dedication positively impacted
the healthcare community.
Alsever said this year ’s
scholarship is in memory of
Robert A. Huffaker, MD.
The scholarship applicant
must be a resident of Pueblo
County and accepted in an
acute health care related
program or pre-health care
curriculum as a full-time or
part-time student at an
accredited college or university
in Colorado.
The student must be enrolled
as a junior or senior college
undergraduate, enrolled in a
graduate program, or enrolled
in a two-year technical
program by Fall 2006.
The applicant must also have
a cumulative grade point
average of 3.0 or better.
The scholarship will pay a
maximum of $5,000 toward
tuition, fees and books for the
2006-2007 academic year.

even drove some California

complications.
The biggest concern about
childhood obesity is not
necessarily the husky youth,
but the overweight adult that
he or she will become.
Researchers predict that,
instead of seeing heart disease
develop in these individuals as
they reach their 50s and 60s,
our kids might suffer heart
disease as early as their 20s and
30s.
In fact, studies show 97
million Americans are now
overweight or obese, and
experts say this obesity costs
employers more than $100
billion annually. The potential
cost in human lives lost to
weight-related diseases is
impossible to calculate. I
believe the best way to prevent
such tragedies is literally to
“nip them in the bud.” Let’s get

ASC Scholarships Cont. from page 2
‘rigorous
academic
curriculum’ in high school. He
said the first year students are
eligible for $750 and second
year for $1,300.
“The really big news are the
SMART grants for third and
fourth year students majoring
in math, science, technology,
engineering or a critical foreign
language,” Schroeder said.
“This grant is $4,000 for those
meeting the criteria.”
Schroeder said students are
chosen for scholarships
through committees. “Adams
State College has a main
committee which chooses the
majority of awards,” Schroeder
said. “Some scholarships are
written so that those who
established them award the
scholarships, like the McDaniel
Scholarships.”
Dr. John McDaniel, professor
of government, has established
nearly 30 scholarships. He
contacts alumni and emeritus
professors to match his $1,500
for individual scholarships.
“We try and make sure each
student that has need does
have at least part of that need
met,” Schroeder said. “We try
and spread the funds as much
as possible.”
There are some tips to getting
the scholarship students apply
for, besides getting them in
early. “I would say the biggest
common mistake is for the
applicant to get in a hurry and
spell the name of the
scholarship wrong on the
application,” Ramsey-Daniel
said. “And while a student
wants to make a good
impression, it isn’t necessary to
make a copy of every award
received since the second
grade. Choose the most
current and prestigious of
awards or certificates and then
list them.”

Letter to the Editor
Dear Editor:
There are more than 40,000 children under the age of five living in El Paso County. The
early years are critical for their growth and development, and a time when we help children
prepare to succeed in school and in life.
As we approach the Week of the Young Child (April 2-8), I would like to celebrate and
commend the outstanding efforts and dedication of parents, teachers, caregivers, and all
adults who play important roles in the lives of young children.
Early education programs – including child care, Head Start, preschools, and elementary
schools – provide crucial learning experiences for many young children. Supporting these
programs is the right choice for children and for our community.
I have seen firsthand the remarkable impact of early childhood programs through years
of volunteer involvement with Community Partnership for Child Development/Head Start.
I have been alternately moved, delighted, and astonished –whether doing art projects,
reading stories, playing make-believe, or observing young children interacting with peers
and parents – by the power of nurturing young potential.
I have met parents who are empowered by CPCD’s comprehensive services to be their
children’s “first and best teachers” – and whose children enter kindergarten eager and
able to learn and excel.
Everyone in this community has opportunities to make a difference, from volunteering
with a local program to supporting efforts that help more young children benefit from
high-quality early education. Week of the Young Child is a good time for all of us to
acknowledge the needs of children in our own community, and to redouble our efforts to
build better futures for all children.
Sincerely,
Beth Brooks
Secretary, Board of Directors

REAL ESTATE
Adkins
Its covered porch and shutters give the compact Adkins the look of a traditional farm-style
home, but the interior is entirely up to date. Kitchen, dining room and living room flow together,
creating a feeling of openness, with nine-foot ceilings adding to the sense of volume.
Standing at the sink, you face out across a large patio, accessed through sliding glass doors in
the dining room’s window bay.
A large work island increases available counter space, and laundry appliances are mere steps
away, in a utility room with cabinets over the appliances. The small powder room is handy to
any area of the main floor, and equally close to the garage.
A gas fireplace serves as a focal point in the living room. An arched opening there sets the
boundary between that and the dining room. To the left of the central stairway is a den, which
would be an ideal location for the family computer, a home entertainment center, or a home
office.
Bedrooms and a large bonus room are upstairs. The Adkins’ owners’ suite has a walk-in closet
and private bathroom. Amenities include a glass-enclosed soaking tub with shower, double
vanity, and builtin bench. Pocket
doors provide
privacy when
needed.
Two linen
closets nestle
into alcoves in
the
hallway,
close
to
a
bathroom that
will be shared
by the people
who live in the
other
two
bedrooms. This
bathroom has a
combined tub
and shower.
The Adkins’
bonus room has
a cross-shaped
central space
with a 9-foot
ceiling
that
slopes down
toward
the
corners. Dormer
windows on
two sides could
be
outfitted
with
cozy
window seats.

Family involvement is key
Cont. from page 15
youthful obesity through
inactivity and poor eating
routines.
When parents make healthy
dining and enjoyable exercise
a priority, they don’t treat their
overweight
children
differently than the rest of the
family.
Placing a heavy child on a
diet or exercise programs
outside of the regular family
routine can embarrass or
alienate the youth, so the
strategy typically produces
only short-term results.
When you were a kid, how
easy would it have been for
you to eat healthy and stay
active if other family members
were eating potato chips and
ice cream while watching
hours of TV? Indeed, everyone
in the family can use a little
more exercise while eating
more fruits, vegetables and
low-fat dairy products.
The first step in developing
a healthy family lifestyle is for
parents to examine their own
behavior and recognize how it
influences their children. As a
parent, if you want your child
to develop smart habits, you
must model the kinds of
activities that would point
your child in the right
direction.
We all know that children
idolize their parents and seek
to mirror their behavior. If you
want your child to eat right
and exercise, it’s not merely a
case of “Do as I say, not as I
do.” You must evaluate your
own health and fitness
conditions and make necessary
changes.
Daily walks with your kids
are a great way to add physical
activity to the family lifestyle.
Also, reduce access to the TV.
The average child eats 600
calories a day in front of the TV.
If you cut that in half, you
eliminate five pounds of
potential gained weight a year.
Another great step is to cook
healthy meals that children
will actually eat.
You can log onto the
American Heart Association
(AHA)
web
site
at
<www.americanheart.org>
and click on the “Heart-Health
Recipe” section. My own site
at <www.drcederquist.com>
offers a “News & Lifestyles”
section that includes great
recipes. Finally, my book packs
an extensive recipe list.
In addition to the essential
physical elements of improved
diet and exercise, it’s important
to provide children with
positive social and emotional
support when helping them to
lose weight.
Negative reinforcement,
scolding and verbal abuse
always do more harm than
good, and parents don’t have
to be food police. It’s more
effective when you rearrange
the environment so that there
are only healthy foods
available and praise the child
for being active and trying
healthy foods.
To make heart-smart eating
simple for a child to
understand, you can use the
“Red Light, Green Light”
system that links foods into
groups. Low-calorie foods are
“green,” and the child can eat
them freely. Moderate-calorie
foods are “yellow,” and are
best eaten occasionally. Highcalorie foods carry the
stoplight color of “red,”
reminding the child to eat them
rarely. It’s an easy way for a kid
to learn how to identify diet
speed traps while substituting
healthy foods for unhealthy
munchies. Most importantly, it
helps children develop healthy
food preferences that last a
lifetime.
With so many problems
facing our kids these days,
from real-world violence to
deficits in our school systems,
their weight and physical
fitness are two areas in which
you can positively influence
your children. I speak from
experience as both a doctor
and a parent when I tell you
what a rewarding relief it is to
know you’re leading your
child toward a future free of
potentially deadly excess
weight.
Quandary
Cont.from page 1
relationship between exposure
to immigrants and opinions
about
them
and
the
immigration problem, more
generally.
In areas with relatively low
concentrations of foreign-born
people, immigrants are seen as
a burden to the nation and as a
threat to American customs.
Republicans and Democrats do
not differ overall, there are
often deep divides within the
political
parties
along
ideological and socioeconomic
lines.
The Metropolitan Area
Surveys
•
Phoenix is the only
metropolitan area where
immigration is cited as the
most important local problem.
• In Las Vegas, a majority says
that immigrants from Latin
America keep to themselves
and do not try to fit in, the
highest among the metro areas
and significantly higher than
the national result.
• Chicago, a historically
diverse city, has seen recent
population gains primarily
from Hispanics. Residents of
the area are generally more
tolerant of immigrants and less
inclined to support punitive
measures
for
illegal
immigrants.
• In Raleigh-Durham, a
sizable majority believes that
recent immigrants do not pay
their share of taxes.
• Washington DC has a
generally more welcoming
view of immigrants compared
with the other metropolitan
areas.
