Colorado lanza su campaña de
vacunación en todo el estado
El jueves 7 de julio, a la 1 pm,
en una conferencia de prensa
efectuada en la escalinata oeste del
Capitolio del Estado, el
Departamento de Salud Pública y
Medio Ambiente de Colorado
lanzó una colorida campaña de
vacunación diseñada para asegurar
que todos los niños del Estado que
sea posible estén totalmente
vacunados cuando cumplan la
edad requerida.
El tema de la campaña, que
destaca dibujos hechos por niños
de Colorado, es “Vacune a los
ñiños de Colorado: Proteja a sus
Seres Queridos”. Los materiales
que exhiben el nuevo logotipo, los
dibujos y el programa de
vacunaciones, incluyen carteles y
tarjetas para llevarse en la cartera,
tanto en inglés como en español.
El logotipo se exhibe también en
un nuevo portal de Web, fácil de
usar, diseñado para que sea fácil
para los padres de Colorado
encontrar la información que
necesiten acerca de las vacunas que
se requieren y dónde pueden
obtenerlas. La dirección del portal
en la Web, que tiene secciones en
inglés y en español, es
www.immunizecoloradoskids.org
Los materiales impresos se
distribuirán a partir de la semana
del 11 de julio a los médicos,
clínicas, departamentos locales de
salud, servicios públicos de
atención a la salud en los
condados, clínicas de WIC (para
mujeres, infantes y niños), y en
otros lugares en todo el Estado.
Los materiales están diseñados
para exhibición y distribución,
para recordarles a los padres la
importancia de asegurarse que sus
hijos tengan tolas vacunas que se
requieren, a la edad apropiada.
La Vice-gobernadora del
Estado, Jane Norton, que fue la
oradora estelar de la conferencia
de prensa que dio comienzo a la
campaña, dijo: “La protección de
la salud de los niños de Colorado
es una de las cosas más
importantes que hacemos.

Colorado launches
statewide immunization
campaign
A colorful immunization
marketing campaign, designed to
make certain as many of the state’s
children as possible are fully
immunized by the required age,
was launched by the Colorado
Department of Public Health and
Environment at a 1 pm news
conference on the west steps of the
Colorado State Capitol.
The theme of the campaign,
which features drawings by
Colorado children, is
“Immunize Colorado’s kids:
protect the ones you love.”
Materials featuring the new logo,
the
drawings,
and
the
immunization schedule for
Colorado include posters and
wallet cards in both English and
Spanish. The logo also is featured
on a new, user-friendly Web site
designed to make it easier for
Colorado parents to find needed
information about required
immunizations and where they can
be obtained.
The address for the Web site,
which has sections in both English
and
Spanish,
is
www.immunizecoloradoskids.org
The printed materials will be
distributed to physicians, clinics,
local health departments, county
public health nursing services,
WIC (Women Infants and
Children) clinics, and other
locations throughout the state.
The materials are designed for

Testimonio de Latinos en el
bombazo de Londres
¿Cómo vieron los latinos de Londres el
macro-atentado?
Good Day for
flying at the
old City airport.
por Isaac Bigio
Según cifras oficiales de hace un
lustro en Reino Unido hay 200,000
residentes latinos (la mitad de ellos
con pasaporte español o
portugués). Sin embargo, esa cifra
es varias veces mayor si se toma
en cuenta a los que estudian, están
‘temporalmente’ o son irregulares.
En Londres se calcula que por lo
menos hay un cuarto de millón de
latinos.
Según la policía inglesa hay más
de 700 heridos en el 7-7. Los
muertos podrían estar entre los 70
y 100. Dentro de las víctimas se
ve mucho inmigrante. Aunque
parezca contradictorio, la minoría
étnica que más muertos y
desaparecidos tiene en proporción
a su población, bien podría ser la
islámica.

Officials at the Pueblo CityCounty Health Department are
advising Puebloans with
respiratory problems such as
asthma, emphysema, bronchitis
and those with chronic heart
disease, to avoid prolonged
exposure to the outdoors due to
the Mason Gulch Fire.
Dr. Nevin-Woods, Director and
Health Officer of the Pueblo
City-County Health Department,
suggests the following general
recommendations for Pueblo
County residents:
• People living in close proximity
to the fire-stricken areas should
remain indoors and avoid
inhalation of smoke, ashes, and
particulate matter in the area.
• If you live close to or in the
surrounding area, it is
recommended that you refrain
from exercising outdoors,
especially if you smell smoke or
notice eye or throat irritation.
• Extra precaution should be
taken for children, who are more
susceptible to smoke because
their respiratory systems are still
developing and they breathe in
more air (and consequently more
pollution) per pound of body
mass than adults. • Use swamp
coolers sparingly. Filter pads can
get clogged with heavy debris in
the air. • When driving your car
in smoky areas, keep your wind

One-stop applying, registering now
under way at PCC
New registration policies at
Pueblo Community College
have caused the college to create
a “one-stop shop” for a limited
time in July to enable students
to sign up for fall semester
classes via a speeded-up format.
To ensure student success,
PCC now requires that new
students intending to take more
than six credit hours must meet
with an advisor and attend an
orientation session.
The process also applies to
readmitted students who haven’t
attended PCC for at least one year.
To reduce the crunch anticipated
prior to the start of fall classes on
Aug. 22, PCC has streamlined
registration procedures. Under the
“one-stop” method, students can
apply to the college, take their
assessments, complete financial
aid forms, attend an orientation,
meet with an advisor and register
for classes in one visit to campus.
Students can start the registration
process at the Admissions office
in Room 224 of the College
Center, located at the corner of
Orman Ave. and Harrison St. just
one block off Lincoln.
As incentives, early
registrants’ names are being
drawn for scholarships and PCC
bookstore coupons.
The fall semester includes a
full term that will begin Aug. 22
and half-terms that will begin
Aug. 22 and Oct. 17. For
information call 549-3200.

EDUCATION ISSUE
Eighth class of Hispanicserving Institutions Fellows
The 21 fellows are highly
accomplished faculty members at
Hispanic-Serving Institutions in
California, Colorado, Florida,
New Mexico, Texas and Puerto
Rico.
Seventeen fellows will work at
USDA in Washington, DC and
four fellows will work at
agricultural research centers for
two-to-six weeks this summer.
Fellows were selected based on
the compatibility of their research
interests with USDA mission areas
and the value their experience
would add to their institution’s
curriculum offerings to Hispanic
students.
Among the topics that will be
researched are food security, food
nutritional patterns and the needs
of the Hispanic population,
landscape horticulture, exercise
and nutrition to combat obesity,
biotechnology, rural development,
land management, urban ecology,
agricultural
science
and
marketing, and international trade
and economics.
Through the partnership fostered
by the fellows program, USDA
and HSIs are better prepared to
address the educational challenges
faced by Hispanics.
Hispanic-Serving Institutions
are accredited and degree-granting
institutions of higher education
with a full-time Hispanic student
enrollment of 25 percent or more.
The fellowship program serves
to advance USDA’s collaboration

NOTICIAS EN
ESPANOL
El ejercicio y la
alimentación son esenciales
para sentirse bien viva más
saludable en el 2005
Estamos en pleno verano, una
temporada en la que muchas
mujeres se enfocan en los trajes de
baño y otras prendas a la moda que
dejan piel al descubierto. Los
expertos están de acuerdo que el
adoptar un estilo de vida más
saludable le ayudará no sólo a
sentirse bien sino también a lucir
fabulosa en estos días calurosos de
verano.
Para inspirar a las mujeres
hispanas a que adopten un estilo
de vida saludable, la presentadora
de televisión Cristina Saralegui y
la Dra. Maritza Fuentes se han
unido para crear conciencia acerca
de temas de salud y bienestar físico
que raramente se discuten. Juntas
están promoviendo La Guía Para
el Bienestar Dulcolax (Dulcolax
Guide to Healthy Living),
disponible a través de http://
www.dulcolax.com. La página de
Internet ofrece información y
consejos para tener una
alimentación saludable y vivir
mejor.
Según la Dra. Fuentes, los
hispanos en los Estados Unidos
enfrentan muchos de los mismos
problemas de salud y bienestar que
otros grupos étnicos, pero a
menudo estos problemas son más
difíciles para los hispanos debido
a su cultura y diferente estilo de
vida.
La falta de ejercicio puede
causar obesidad y diabetes entre
los hispanos, así mismo sus
diferentes hábitos alimenticios
ayudan a explicar porqué los
hispanos padecen más de
estreñimiento que los demás
grupos étnicos.
“La gran mayoría de las
personas que sufren de
estreñimiento son mujeres”, dice
la Dr. Fuentes. “Además, casi un
tercio de los hispanos que sufren
de estreñimiento describen su
condición como severa”.
“El propósito de la campaña es
educar acerca de uno de los
problemas de salud más comunes
entre las mujeres - el
estreñimiento”, dice Cristina.
“Las mujeres necesitan saber
acerca de la cantidad de agua que
deben beber cada día para estar
saludables, acerca de los
beneficios de hacer ejercicio, que
comiendo más fibra puede no ser
suficiente para curar el
estreñimiento, y que las vitaminas
o medicinas que toman pueden ser
la causa de su estreñimiento”.
Las dos ofrecen los siguientes
consejos para ayudar a las mujeres
a aliviarse del estreñimiento y
sentirse bien:
Apúntelo. Lleve un diario con
todos los mensajes que su cuerpo
está intentando comunicarle, tales
como las comidas que le causan
hinchazón abdominal y la hacen
sentir llena, o la frecuencia de su
evacuación intestinal. Apuntando
como usted se siente y las comidas
que le afectan diariamente, usted
reconocerá lo que puede estar
causándole estreñimiento y
controlarlo.
Planee comidas saludables. Esto
puede aliviar algunos problemas
de estreñimiento.
Evite comer rápidamente o dejar
de comer durante el día, y también
mantenga bocados saludables a
mano para los días ocupados.
Asegúrese de incluir frutas y
verduras en su dieta diaria y
cómalos de manera creativa, por
ejemplo con queso ‘cottage’ bajo
en grasa, o con salsas.
Hable con su doctor o
farmaceuta sobre las medicinas y
vitaminas que está tomando.
Algunas de estas pueden estar
causándole estreñimiento sin que
usted lo sepa. Por eso es que los
laxantes son por lo regular
recetados a personas que toman
suplementos
de
hierro,
analgésicos, y medicamentos para
el colesterol y las enfermedades
del corazón.
Controle la tensión. Ya que
puede empeorar el estreñimiento
más de lo que usted piensa.
Tómese por lo menos quince
minutos al día para relajarse con
una taza de té de hierbas o para
caminar. ¡También, haga lo que
tiene que hacer sin apresurarse!
¡Haga ejercicio! Durante los días
que usted no puede hacer 30
minutos de actividad física, trate
de subir escalones, caminar en vez
de manejar, y de jugar con sus
niños o sus mascotas.
No sienta vergüenza por tener
una evacuación intestinal cuando
esta en el trabajo o en otro lugar
que no sea su casa. ¡Es un acto
natural que todos hacemos
entonces no se sienta avergonzada
cuando usted lo haga!
Usted puede llevar cubredores
de asiento desechables y toallas
húmedas en su cartera por si
necesita usar un baño público.
Escuche a su cuerpo. Viajes o
cambios inesperados en su rutina
pueden causar estreñimiento.
Usted puede usar un laxante suave
para tratar sus síntomas de
estreñimiento hasta que pueda
reanudar su rutina diaria.
No se obsesione. No se
preocupe si usted no tuvo una
evacuación del intestino hoy.
Está bien si usted se siente bien.
Tome un minuto para escuchar a
su cuerpo y asegurarse que usted
está sintiéndose bien.
Adopte un buen hábito. Intente
ir al baño a la misma hora todos
los días. Muchas personas se
acostumbran a ir al baño cuando
se despiertan o después de comer.
Tenga disponible un laxante.
Está bien tomar un laxante como
Dulcolax para aliviar el
estreñimiento temporal, aunque
los que sufren de estreñimiento
deben consultar a su doctor si los
síntomas persisten por más de una
semana.

Pikes Peak United Way 2-1-1 Hotline celebrates one-year anniversary
The Pikes Peak United Way is
pleased to announce the one-year
anniversary of its 2-1-1 hotline,
designed to assist local residents
in need of non-emergency health
and social service resources.
The easy-to-remember threedigit number, which serves
residents of El Paso, Teller,
Chaffee, Park, Lincoln, and
Cheyenne counties, makes it
possible for people in need to
navigate the complex and evergrowing maze of health and
human services providers in their
community.
At present, three trained
information specialists – one

El lunes, expertos en la
prevención de las lesiones, del
Departamento de Salud Pública y
Medio Ambiente de Colorado,
advirtieron a los padres y a quienes
den atención a los niños que nunca
deben dejar solo a ningún niño en
un vehículo caliente, ni siquiera si
es sólo por unos cuantos minutos,
ni aunque las ventanillas estén
abiertas.
“A pesar de que pudiera
parecerle a usted que afuera no
hace mucho calor, los niños que
se les deja solos en un auto
estacionado en un día caluroso,
pueden llegar a morir rápidamente.
Durante los meses del verano, la
temperatura interior de un auto
estacionado puede alcanzar más de
120 grados en tan sólo 10
minutos”, advirtió Barbara Bailey,
especialista en la prevención de
lesiones de la Coalición SAFE
KIDS de Colorado, que tiene su
base en el Departamento de Salud
Pública y Medio Ambiente.
Bailey explicó: “Cuando el niño
está en un auto caliente, pierde los
fluidos y las sales del cuerpo al

agotamiento por el calentamiento.

In addition to providing
resource information, 2-11 also serves the
community by helping to
ease the burden placed on
emergency resources by
non-emergency callers.
In partnership with local
police departments and 91-1 emergency dispatch
systems, 2-1-1 accepts
transferred non-emergency
calls, allowing emergency
dispatchers to be available
for life-threatening, crisis
situations.
2-1-1 also provides a central
system to collect and analyze data
regarding community needs. This
data is used by funding
organizations, service providers as utility assistance consistently
well as city and county officials topping the list of needs among
and planners to better assess the those who call. There has also
been a significant increase in
calls for food assistance as
many wait for approval or reapproval for food stamps.
According to the annual
report, 76% of all 2-1-1
callers are female. 66.5%
have children. 68% are

average income of those

que tuvo suerte de no perecer ya
que la mayoría de los otros
pasajeros del vagón donde estaba
fallecieron.
Juan Pablo Riaño, quien vive en
Londres hace 8 años, estuvo en
uno de los vagones detonados. El
sufrió
contusiones
pero
sobrevivió. Se escapó por un
agujero en el tren y tuvo fuerzas
para socorrer a otros pasajeros,
incluyendo otra mujer que tenía los
brazos destrozados y regados.
Gloria Quintanilla se salvó del
bombazo. Ella debía haber estado
haciendo su rutina diaria en el
metro que recorrió Edware Rd.,
donde fue uno de los atentados,
pero en la víspera la ‘salvó’ una
inesperada neumonía. Ella prefirió
haber llegado al hospital por ello
que por el bombazo.
La zona más afectada fueron las
pocas cuadras que están entre King
Cross, la biblioteca británica,
Euston y las plazas Tavistock y
Russell. En el subsuelo se produjo
la peor carnicería y en la superficie
detonó un bus. Un brasilero estuvo
dentro de los pasajeros de dicho
ómnibus pero se salvó.
Roberto, quien estudia en la
University College of London
(cerca de donde fue un atentado),
nos mandó un e-mail diciéndonos:
“Yo estuve cerca del bombazo ya
que vivo en Euston Street, pero
gracias a Dios nada me paso a mi
o a mis hijos’.
Héctor Fernández nos
conversaba que en su edificio

peruanos, chilenos y ecuatorianos.
Sin embargo, ninguno fue afectado
pese a que su predio queda
contiguo a la estación de King
Cross, casi encima de uno de los
rieles donde se produjo la peor
explosión y muy cerca de la plaza
Tavistock.
Nos cuenta que no se puede pasar
a ver esos lugares, pues están
cerrados al público.
Carlos Burgos, quien vivió cerca
de Tavistock Square, nos contaba
como presenció en los ochentas un
incendio en el metro de King
Cross, que tal vez fue peor que el
atentado.
Nos relató el caso de dos vecinas
del lugar, quienes, como muchas
personas de origen andino se
dedican a trabajar en limpieza, se
libraron por un pelo de morir.
Ellas, como todos los días, debían
salir de sus empleos caminando
hacia Edware Road o Paddington.
Por una extraña casualidad del
destino, ellas prefirieron tomar el
bus. Al obviar la ruta subterránea
(más veloz) sin quererlo se
salvaron de ir en el tren de la
muerte que explotó mientras ellas
estaban en la superficie.

conferencia tuvo que ser

los bombazos se hubieran dado
más tarde pudieron haber afectado

NEGOCIOS-BUSINESS
Largest Colorado credit union launches
new brand
Ent Federal Credit Union, the
leading financial institution in the
Pikes Peak region, launched a new
logo and tagline: Ent - Where you
belong.
The new logo
features a stylized
“E” surrounded by a
solid red circle.
The full-service credit union has
had the same look and feel since
its inception in 1957, but research
conducted last year indicated a
change was necessary. Surveys
revealed perceived barriers for
members and non-members to
consider Ent as their financial
partner.
“As a community
chartered
credit
union, any person that
lives,
works,
worships or goes to
school in Teller, Pueblo, El Paso
and parts of Denver counties is
eligible to be an Ent member,” said
Charles Emmer, CEO and
president of Ent.
“However, our brand wasn’t
conveying that message to
members or prospective members.
It also did not clearly communicate
the breadth of products and
services we offer.”
In addition to a new logo, Ent
has adopted a new creative look
and feel for all of its collateral and
advertising, which better reflects
the credit union’s competitive
products and quality member
service.
The organization’s legal name
Demand for SBA-Backed Loans
continues at record pace
Small businesses continued
turning to the US Small Business
Administration for commercial
credit in record numbers through
the first three quarters of FY 2005,
reflecting their confidence in the
US economy and the stability of
the SBA loan program that backs
their loans.
Small businesses secured SBA
backing under the agency’s
flagship 7(a) program for 71,131
loans through the first nine months
of the fiscal year, a 21 percent
increase over the same period a
year ago and a 49 percent increase
over the same period two years
ago. In Colorado, the SBA has
approved 1,464 7(a) guaranteed
loans worth $285.3 million - a 29.3
percent increase over the same
period last year.
The loans made so far this year
amount to $11.1 billion, 19.5
percent more than in the same
period last year, and on a clear pace
for a record-setting year for the
program.
“We had a record year for this
loan program a year ago, and we’re
going to set another record in
2005,” said SBA Administrator
Hector V. Barreto.
“It tells us that the critics are
wrong, that small businesses are
confident enough to invest in the
future of the American economy,
and that this program is here to
help them do it.
It also demonstrates the
effectiveness of the self-funded
footing on which the President has
placed the loan program, and the
confidence that lenders have in its
stability. I am very pleased with
this performance so far this year.”
The gains are also reflected in
the SBA’s Certified Development
Company, or 504, loan program.
Through the first nine months of
the fiscal year, the 504 program
had issued 6,434 loans worth
$3.44 billion, more than 6 percent
ahead of the same period a year
ago, when the program had
produced 6,058 loans for $2.88
billion.
During the same period, 231 504 loans were made in Colorado
worth $99 million - a 9.8 percent
increase over last year.
The budget for the current year
makes more than $21 billion
available to small businesses
through the two loan programs,
including $16 billion in small
business lending under the 7(a)
program and $5 billion under the
504 program. For information on
applying for an SBA loan, visit the

missed a year since. He earned just
$2,647 and failed to make the field
on Sunday in his first visit to

earned a total of 344 points and
$1,667,239 in his 14 visits.
In 2000, he was the Tournament
champion.
Els is currently 19th on the PGA
TOUR money list, having won
$1,588,635 so far.
His best finish in 2005 came at
the Sony Open in Hawaii where
he finished T2.

Mark Hensby, Joe Ogilivie, Geoff
Ogilvy and Duffy Waldorf.

2005 Dodge Ram SRT-10 Test Drive
From Robert Bowden
It’s not often that you’ll find
options costing more than a
vehicle’s base price. But that’s
the case with the 2005 Dodge
SRT-10. It starts life as a Dodge
Ram pickup, with a base price of
$22,425. Not bad.
But the options that create the
mighty SRT-10 tack on another
$22,575, for a grand total of
$45,795.
For that, you get what is
currently the fastest truck on the
planet. Prices: US $22,425 base;
as tested, $45,795. Warranty: 3
years/36,000 miles total vehicle
and powertrain.
Heritage
Some of us have been down
this road before. We remember
Detroit’s horsepower races of the
mid- and late-Sixties, a mine-isfaster-than-yours competition
that came to a screeching halt in
1972 when gasoline supplies
dried up, insurance companies
collectively said enough is
enough, and federal emission
standards reared their ugly head.
That era was followed by more
than a decade of tip-toeing offering ever-quicker chariots.
around horsepower. But that’s Among trucks and truck-based
not the American way, and soon sport utilities, the second round
manufacturers were again of competition culminated in
1991 and 1992 when General
Motors put a 280-hp engine in a
truck and sport utility, calling
them the Syclone and Typhoon.
They scooted zero to 60 in a
truck apart and Dodge travelled
that route with an extreme front
end, an in-your-face straight-upand-down brick wall of a grille.
But for the 2005 Dodge SRT-10,
it went even further.
Just look at the 20-inch wheels
on this truck. There’s even a 20inch spare.
The air dam looks like it
belongs on a NASCAR race

Dodge Ram SRT-10
Cont. from page 12
No one, in a car or truck, bothered me. Men in top
BMWs stopped me to ask about it. Kids gathered
everywhere I took a lunch break.
Those in the know really know what the 2005 Dodge
SRT-10 is.
This is King Kong. This is the Top Truck. The hood
would be popped, greeting bystanders with that
massive engine with VIPER on the red covers. The
gathered would count spark plug wires .. 1,2,3,4 .. 5
.. on each side!
And I’d crank it up and it would emit a snarl that
stood hairs on end, caused small dogs and children to
flee, got furrowed brows from the elderly. How many
other trucks can do that? Zero.
This is The Truck. This has, at least temporarily,
dethroned the Ford SVT Lightning. I like them both,
but this one is really, really special. Dodge can be proud of giving
us a reasonably comfortable, great handling, top-notch performance
truck.
Like the Viper, however, it will sell in extremely limited numbers
(2,500 a year). The announced price usually dispersed gathered
crowds in a hurry.
Tips To Avoid Making Your Car
A Virtual Oven
(NAPSA)-When the temperature
rises outside, the combination of
extreme heat, direct sunlight and
closed windows can turn a parked
car into a virtual oven with
dashboard temperatures reaching
up to about 192° F.
Recent tests, conducted for Auto
Expressions(tm), found that on an
89° F day, air trapped inside your
vehicle can heat up within
minutes. In a parked car without a
sunshade, the dashboard heats up
to 192° F, high enough to cook a
chicken and the steering wheel
tops out at 191° F, high enough to
grill a hamburger.
In the same extreme conditions,
a car using an accordion-style
sunshade in the windshield was
able to keep the cars interior an
average of 43° F cooler.
Sunshades reflect sunrays by
blocking the sunlight coming
through the windshield, helping to
reduce the heat and block 99
percent of damaging UV rays.
Additionally, the use of a sunshade
helps protect a car’s interior,
preventing possible fading,
cracking or discoloration.
“Using a sunshade and other
sun-protection products in your
vehicle are simple and effective
ways to help keep you and your
car cooler,” said Laurie Stevens,
director of marketing for Auto
Expressions(tm) accessories. “It’s
vital that drivers take extra
precautionary steps to help protect
themselves, their passengers and
their vehicle from the sun’s
damaging rays.”
Tips to Help Beat the Summer
Heat:
• Park in the shade whenever
possible.
• Use a sunshade to help reduce
the heat buildup.
• Use a fabric-based steering wheel
cover to help protect your hands.
• Open doors and let the air
circulate in the car for a few
minutes before getting into the car.
• Set your air conditioner to
“regular or fresh air” before
switching to “maximum.”
How to Reduce Car Damage
• Use a sunshade to help reduce
heat and sun-damage in your
vehicle.
• Protect steering wheels,
dashboard and seats with covers.
• Wash your vehicle regularly and
use a wax with a UV absorber.
• Maintain vinyl and leather
interiors with a UV absorbent
cleaner/protectant.
• Have your cabin air filter and airconditioning systems serviced
annually.

products to reduce rising
temperatures within the car this
summer, visit www.autoexpressions.net.

display and distribution to remind
parents of the importance of
making certain their children have
had all of the required
immunizations at the appropriate
time.
Colorado’s Lieutenant Governor
Jane Norton, the featured speaker
at the kickoff news conference,
said, “Protecting the health of
Colorado’s children is one of the
most important things that we do.
Immunizations not only are safe
but they also prevent the youngest

residents of the state from
becoming ill with the childhood
diseases that can be so serious.
“As a mother and as a health
educator, I urge every Colorado
parent to become well informed
about the required immunizations
and to make certain their children
are fully immunized. This new
campaign makes it easy to obtain
that information.”
Douglas H. Benevento, the
Department of Public Health and
Environment’s executive director,
said, “The Governor’s Office and
the Department of Public Health
and Environment have been
working hard to increase the
number of Colorado children who
are fully immunized and we are
making important progress. This
immunization
marketing
campaign is just another step in
that direction.
“Colorado’s rate for fully
immunizing its 2-year-olds stood
at 51.4 percent in 1995. In 2004,
70.9 percent of Colorado’s 2-yearolds were fully immunized. That
is an important step forward and
we are continuing to work to make
certain that every Colorado parent
who wants his or her children to
be immunized has the information
and opportunity necessary to do
so.”
Dr. Jim Shira, a Children’s
Hospital pediatrician and an
executive board member for the
Colorado
Children’s
Immunization Coalition, said,
“Every Colorado child deserves to
be protected against the 13
diseases that are prevented by our
state’s immunization program.”
The state health director said the
campaign includes three different
versions of the posters and wallet
cards.
One features the drawing of a
flower with the tag line,
“Immunizations help kids grow up
healthy.” A second features a car
and the caption, “Immunizations
help get kids moving in the right
direction.” And, the third
spotlights a sun and the wording,
“Immunizations help make futures
bright.”
And, in the center of the flower
and the sun and as hubcaps for the
car, there is something that is
easily recognizable — a replica of
the Band-Aids that so often cover
the spot where the immunization
is given.
Benevento said all three contain
the schedule of immunizations
required for Colorado children up
to the time they enter elementary
school; other information about
immunizations and the involved
vaccines; the address of the new
Web site; and the telephone
numbers for the department’s
Family
Healthline
and
Immunization Program where
parents can call to obtain
information about immunizations
and where they can be obtained.
The number for the Family
Healthline is (303) 692-2229 or
1-800-688-7777 and the number
for the Immunization Program is
(303) 692-2650.
Colorado children are required
to have immunizations to protect
them from 13 childhood diseases
by the time they reach the age of
two. These include vaccinations
for diphtheria, tetanus and
pertussis or whoopping cough
(DTaP); haemophilus influenzae
type b; hepatitis A; hepatitis B;
influenza; measles, mumps;
Cont. on page 19
Campaña De Vacunación Continua de página 1
Las inmunizaciones no
solamente no ofrecen peligro, sino
que también evitan que los
residentes más jóvenes del Estado
se enfermen con las enfermedades
de la infancia que pueden llegar a
ser graves.
“Como madre y como educadora
de la salud, les recomiendo
urgentemente a todos los padres de
familia que se informen bien
acerca de las inmunizaciones que
se les requieren y que se aseguren
de que sus niños estén
suficientemente vacunados. Esta
nueva campaña facilita las cosas
para obtener esa información”.
Douglas H. Benevento, Director
Ejecutivo del el Departamento de
Salud Pública y Medio Ambiente,
dijo: “La Oficina del Gobernador
y el Departamento de Salud
Pública y Medio Ambiente han
estado trabajando arduamente para
incrementar el número de niños de
Colorado
que
estén
suficientemente vacunados y
estamos haciendo un progreso
importante en ese sentido. Esta
campaña
publicitaria
de
inmunización es solamente otro
paso en esa dirección”.
“En 1995, el índice de niños de
2 años de edad suficientemente
vacunados, estuvo en un 51.4 por
ciento. En 2004, al 70.9 por ciento
de los niños de 2 años de edad se
les aplicaron todas las vacunas
apropiadas. Esto es un paso
importante hacia delante y
continuamos trabajando para
asegurarnos que cada uno de los
padres y madres de Colorado que
quiera que sus hijos sean
vacunados, tenga la información y
la oportunidad necesaria para
hacerlo”.
El Dr. Jim Shira, pediatra del
Hospital Infantil y miembro
ejecutivo de la directiva de la
Coalición para la Inmunización de
Los Niños de Colorado, dijo:
“Cada uno de los niños de
Colorado merece que se le proteja
contra las 13 enfermedades que
evita nuestro programa estatal de
inmunizaciones.”
El director estatal dijo que la
campaña incluye tres diferentes
versiones de los carteles y tarjetas
que pueden ponerse en la cartera.
Una presenta el dibujo de una
flor con la inscripción “Las
vacunas les ayudan a que los niños
crezcan saludables”. La segunda
presenta un auto y la leyenda “Las
vacunas ayudan a que los niños
vayan por el camino correcto”. Y
la tercera destaca un sol y las
palabras “Las vacunas ayudan a
que el futuro sea brillante”.
Y en el centro de la flor y del
sol, y como tapones de las ruedas
del auto, hay algo que es
fácilmente reconocible – una
réplica del curita que con mucha
frecuencia cubre el lugar donde se
pone la vacuna.
Benevento dijo que las tres
versiones contienen el programa
de inmunizaciones que se requiere
que tengan los niños en Colorado
para cuando ingresen a la escuela
primaria; también hay otra
información acerca de las
inmunizaciones y las vacunas que
incluyen, la dirección del nuevo
portal de la Web, y los números
telefónicos de la Línea de Salud
Familiar y del Programa de
Inmunizaciones del departamento,
a donde los padres pueden llamar
para obtener información acerca
de las vacunaciones y el lugar
donde pueden obtenerse.
El número telefónico de la
Línea de Salud Familiar es el
(303) 692-2229 o 1-800-688-7777
y el número telefónico del
Programa de Inmunizaciones es
el (303) 692-2650.
Se requiere que los niños de
Colorado
tengan
las
inmunizaciones que los protejan
de 13 enfermedades infantiles para
cuando cumplan 2 años de edad.
Éstas incluyen las vacunas contra
la difteria, el tétano y la tos ferina
(pertusis) o tos convulsiva (DTaP),
la influenza haemophilus tipo B,
la influenza, el sarampión, las
paperas,
la
enfermedad
neumocócica o neumonía, la polio,
la rubéola, y la varicela o viruela
loca.
“Los padres de Coloradon que
quieran que se inmunice a sus
hijos, deben acudir a la agencia
que les proporciona atención
médica”, dijo Benevento. “Pero
si no tienen quien les proporcione
atención médica en forma regular,
hay clínicas, departamentos
locales de salud y servicios de
atención médica en los condados,
en donde se pueden obtener las
inmunizaciones”.
El director estatal de salud dijo
que las agencias públicas de salud
cobran una cuota administrativa
pequeña por administrar las
inmunizaciones, pero dijo que se
pueden exentar del pago de la
cuota si los padres no pueden
pagarla.
También, como parte del
esfuerzo publicitario, se lanzará
una campaña de anuncios de
servicio público sobre la
importancia de las inmunizaciones
en Univisión, una de las estaciones
de televisión en idioma español de
Colorado, el miércoles 13 de julio.
La campaña de publicidad fue
desarrollada por el Programa de
Inmunizaciones y la Oficina de
Comunicaciones, trabajando con
Cactus Communications, que es
una firma de publicidad de
Colorado. Continua en página 19

Y Construction unveils the “2005 Parade of Homes Surprise”
Several market conditions have
combined recently, making solar
space heating and domestic hot
water heating an attractive option
for home buyers to consider,
among them are soaring energy
prices with no end in sight, a long
overdue solid national energy
policy, and “Green” environmental
considerations, just to name a few.
Jason Yaun, president of Y
Construction Inc. recalls living in
a home as a small boy that was
heated (space and domestic hot
water) and also a small pool was
heated in the summer months. He
recruited the aid and expertise of
his father (an industrial engineer)
to design two very different but
efficient systems for the two
different building sites to be used
in this year’s Parade of Homes.
1069 Lynx Dr. (Home #20), on
Liberty Point in Pueblo West, has
an excellent southern exposure.
The house is therefore a passive
solar hybrid. Solar energy entering
the upper level windows heats the
2” thick concrete and tile floor and
is transferred to the 4” thick

basement floor for storage until
needed for heating purposes later
that night when it is transferred
back to the main level.
This process also prevents
overheating during the winter
months, a long time draw back in
passive solar designs.
Y Construction’s new energy
efficient homes utilize heat
transfer is made possible by using
the components of a radiant in
floor heating system.
This system is low entropy and
efficient. The technology level is
“Root Cellar”. Parts are all
standard and easy to find and
replace if ever needed.
Y’s other solar home is located
at 169 Blue Hills Dr. (Home #21),
where the orientation of the lot is
NOT conducive for a passive solar
heat gain through southern
exposed windows.
A massive action system was
designed consisting of (8) 4 x 10
black chrome solar collector
panels and a 1200 gallon highly
insulated storage tank interfaced
with a very simple and effective
radiant in floor heating system.
Nearly 1,000,000 Btu’s can be
stored in the storage tank, an ample
amount to heat both the domestic
hot water and space heating
requirements of the home for
several days, even in very cold
weather with little sun light.
“We are not sure how the public
will receive our two innovative
homes this year, but it is time to
start looking at alternative energy
as a viable option,” says Yaun.
“We are very excited of the
possibilities and hope the public
will stop in to see what we’ve
done.” Kent Shelman of E-Star
Energy say that Tracy Y of Green
Built Colorado has been through
the two homes and has also asked

Builder Forum”.
Hispanics Gain 45,000 New Jobs Cont. from page 7
This is despite an increase of
38,000 jobs, which was not
sufficient to absorb the additional
50,000 Hispanic men that joined
the labor force. With less jobs than
workers, the ranks of the
unemployed swelled by 12,000
men.
For Hispanic women 20 years
and over, the unemployment rate
rose to 5.9 percent from 5.8
percent in May. In this case, in
the increase was driven by a loss
of 57,000 jobs as 54,000 women
dropped out of the labor force.
From the data, it is not possible
to determine whether women
voluntarily left these jobs in order
to exit the labor force (possibly due
to family responsibilities) or
whether after losing their jobs
these women became discouraged
and are not currently seeking new
employment.
The unemployment rate among
young Hispanics (16 to 19 years)
of both sexes increased to 21.0
percent, or slightly over one fifth,
from 19.9 percent in May. This
was due to an increase of 113,000
Hispanic youths into the labor
market with the creation of only
78,000 new jobs for this group.
However, this is may be due to
the seasonal fluctuation of school
graduations,
rather
than
underlying
labor
market
conditions.

“Colorado parents who want to
have their children immunized
should go to their health care
provider,” Benevento said. “But,
if they do not have a regular health
care provider, there are clinics,
local health departments and
county public health nursing
services where immunizations can
be obtained.”
The state health director said
local public health agencies charge
a small administrative fee for
administering the immunizations
but he said that fee can be waived
if parents cannot afford to pay it.
Also as part of the marketing
effort, a public service
announcement campaign on the
importance of immunizations will
be launched on Univision, one of
