ASC students can spend a
semester away
Adams State College students
can now attend college across
the nation through the
National Student Exchange
Program.
Bobbi Jo Keefer, director of
student life, spearheaded the
project. “I’m a firm believer
in study abroad and
opportunities for students to
experience as much as they
can,” Keefer said. “This can be
a great way to open students’
eyes to discover more about
their world.”
Adams State students
continue to pay Adams State
tuition while attending an NSE
university. Priscilla Gardea ’06
plans to attend Keene State
College in New Hampshire.
“I want to get the most from
my
undergraduate
experience,” Gardea said.
“Going to a new school for my
final semester will be like
reliving my freshman year.”
Amy LeVay ’08, an art major,
plans to attend California State
University at Northridge.
LeVay said going to a larger
school will allow her to
develop her social skills and
choose from a variety of
classes. “Since I am an art
major, the more experience I
get with different styles of
professors, the more my talent
will expand,” she said.
Jodie Brubacher ’09 plans to
attend University of Hawaii at
Hilo.
“I have always wanted to go
to Hawaii,” Brubacher said. “I
heard about the NSE program
and figured that it would be a
perfect way to go. Plus, I
would be able to spend a lot
more time there than I would
on a vacation.” In order to be
eligible for the program,
students must maintain a 2.7
GPA. For more info visit NSE’s
website at <www.nse.org> or
contact Bobbi Jo Keefer at (719)

Hi Daddy,
It is one of the easiest greetings to become accustomed to. I used to be
assured that in most parts of the country the term that was used, was Dad
or my Father, then I spent some time in the South. I quickly noticed most
of the women down South, could tell you about their” Daddy”.
Somehow today, when I answer the phone and hear “Hi Daddy,” I know
who it is and what it means. And she is not from the South.
During this holiday, we normally hear of news about Dads and what they did or not
accomplish. There will be positive stories, negative stories; to many of us it is the same
question. How in the world did Dad do it? To grow up in the 40’s, no TV, no cell phones.
How did he know when it was time to play catch, when to assure I had done my chores?
Some of the lessons where subtle, not pressured, my family is familiar with the term,
“Till death due us part” and through the years we come to understand other things he
wanted us to know. Perhaps at the time we were too busy to really comprehend… Hi
Daddy, it is nice to hear. Have a great Fathers Day.

Goleada cangura
por Isaac Bigio
Nuevamente Alemania
muestra que puede tener un
amuleto hecho con pata que no
es de conejo sino de canguro.
El segundo mundial que se
juega en este país es el segundo
en el cual los “socceroos”
entran a tallar y lo han hecho
con muy buen pie.
Primero Australia eliminó al
bicampeón Uruguay, anfitrión
del primer Mundial, y hoy
acaba de golear 3-1 al anfitrión
del anterior mundial (Japón).
El choque entre Japón y
Australia era el de dos gigantes
del Pacífico que batallaron
duro en la II Guerra Mundial
aunque hoy son los mayores
socios de EEUU en su región.
Los canguros nunca
destacaron en el fútbol pero sí
en el rugby. Australia fue el
primer anfitrión del mundial
de la unión del rugby y es
también el país que más
mundiales ha ganado en dicho
deporte.
El fútbol y el rugby tienen un
origen común en Inglaterra.
Sin embargo, aislados en un
rincón del planeta los
australianos no le dieron
mayor importancia a lo que
ellos y los norteamericanos
denominan el “soccer” y más
bien desarrollaron el rugby y
su propio fútbol.
Este último se juega con 22
jugadores y con una cancha
mucho más grande (185 metros
de largo) que tiene tres arcos en
cada lado.
Si bien éste tiene rasgos
similares al rugby (por el tipo
de pelota empleada y por la
posibilidad de usar las manos
y coger al adversario) tiene
mucha influencia de nuestro
fútbol en el sentido que los
goles deben ser hechos por
tiros de pie.
En Londres los latinos suelen
reunirse cada domingo en el
parque de Clapham para
vivara sus equipos en la copa
latinoamericana de balompié y
muy cerca de su cancha juegan
los australianos su propio
fútbol.
Para Japón-Corea del Sur
2002 los “socceroos” fueron
eliminados por los charrúas.
Esta
vez
en
Sidney
consiguieron una venganza,
dulce para ellos, pero amarga
(como el mate uruguayo) para
los latinoamericanos.
Australia ahora quiere seguir
los pasos de EEUU y toma en
serio al mayor juego de pelota
que hay en el globo. Al igual
que los norteamericanos le da
importancia al fútbol femenino
y ha invertido bastante en el
balompié masculino.
Para ello contrataron a uno
de los mejores técnicos que
hay: Guus Hiddink, quien
dirigió a Holanda y a Corea del
Sur hasta hacerles entrar en
semifinales de mundiales. Su
selección, además, está llena de
cracks curtidos en clubes
británicos y europeos.
En Oceanía Australia ha sido
como un tuerto que es el rey en
el país de los ciegos. Ha
ganado todos los campeonatos
de dicha región salvo en dos
oportunidades en que quedó
subcampeón.
Para Corea-Japón 2002
Australia llegó a ganar en el
Pacífico con las goleadas más
espectaculares vistas en la
historia de los mundiales.
Venció a las Islas Cook 17 a 0, a
Tonga 22 a 0, y a Samoa
Americana 33 a 0 (¡un
promedio de un gol cada 160
segundos!).
La tragedia australiana ha
sido la de quedarse relegada a
jugar siempre partidos con los
equipos “parias” de otros
continentes, en donde suele
quedar eliminada. En 1970 y
1982 se midió con Israel, quien
no podía jugar con sus vecinos,
con quienes guerreó. En 1978
debió medirse con Taiwán, a
quien China no quería ver en
el grupo asiático.
Australia no solo ha querido
llegar a Alemania 2006 sino
mostrar que Oceanía puede
dejar de ser la cenicienta del
balompié global.
¡México saca lo Bravo!
México y Portugal, que
venció a segunda hora a
Angola por 1-0, encabezan el
Grupo D con tres puntos.
Oswaldo Sánchez,
guardameta mexicano y cuya
participación estuvo en duda
hasta la víspera, terminó el
duelo en lágrimas y rodeado
por todos sus compañeros, que
tan pronto sonó el pitazo final
corrieron a abrazarlo.
Los mexicanos no lograron
engranar a perfección en la
salida, y por momentos se
vieron complicados por un
veloz equipo iraní y sus
frecuentes llegadas por la
banda derecha.
La presencia del capitán
Rafael Márquez fue la llave que
mantuvo el orden frente a las
incursiones rivales.
Sánchez, vitoreado por los
miles
de
aficionados
mexicanos que avivaron el
estadio, realizó una de sus
características atajadas a los 12
minutos, cuando voló hacia su
izquierda y alcanzó a manotear
un cabezazo de Vahid Hashemian que se dirigía a la red.
El primer gol llegó a los 28
minutos, en un balón parado.
Pável Pardo pateó un tiro libre
desde la derecha, Franco
cabeceó al arco y Bravo,
siempre en el lugar correcto,
desvió la pelota con el pie
derecho para burlar al arquero
Ebrahim Mirzapour.
Cuando México parecía
dominar a su antojo, llegó el
balde de agua fría del empate.
Los iraníes sacaron un córner
desde la derecha, Hashemian
cabeceó y Sánchez tapó el
remate pero el rebote quedó
en
los
pies
de
Golmohammadi, que sólo
tuvo que meterle el pie para
empujarla a la malla.
La entrada en el
complemento de “Zinha” y
Luis Pérez, por Gerardo
Torrado y Franco, le cambió la
cara al partido y los mexicanos
se apoderaron de la posesión
del balón.
Jared Borgetti fue
reemplazado al inicio del
segundo tiempo por una
lesión en la pierna izquierda.
Su lugar lo tomó Francisco
Fonseca.
Mirzapour, portero iraní
falló en un despeje, y la
defensa le entregó el balón a
“Zinha”, que lo filtró a Bravo
y el delantero fusiló con
sangre fría para el 2-1.
Apenas tres minutos
después, “Zinha” cabeceó un
centro de derecha de Mario
Méndez para la tercera diana.
México enfrenta el viernes a
Angola, y el 21 a Portugal. Irán
el sábado con Portugal, y el 21
con Angola.
Lima vs. Caracas
Por Isaac Bigio
En la 36a Asamblea de la
OEA, Nicaragua se ha unido al
Perú para denunciar que
Chávez también interfiere en
su proceso electoral. Brasil,
cosa importante, ha apoyado al
Perú, mostrando su disgusto
por la nacionalización de
Petrobras que Caracas apoyó
en Bolivia.
Ni García ni Chávez quieren
romper relaciones entre sí. La
guerra verbal que ambos
protagonizaron sirvió al
aprista para ganar el voto
derechista y al bolivariano para
hacer que Humala lo siga y se
izquierdice.
Hoy, ambos han logrado sus
propósitos. García ha llegado
al gobierno y ahora la
oposición venezolana anuncia
unirse tras un solo candidato.
Chávez ha logrado crear por
primera vez un movimiento
masivo afín en Perú (donde
antes no tenía nada), que ganó
más del 50% de los votos fuera
de Lima y que usará ese caudal
para presionar al nuevo
gobierno a que busque revisar
el TLC, ser autónomo de EEUU
y aplicar medidas populistas.
El nuevo campo de batalla
electoral en la región son las
elecciones mexicanas, donde
Chávez y García apoyan a
López Obrador.

Grupo Zero continúa con la tradición de la Revolución Mexicana
por John Kuebler
Las melodiosas guitarras y
las canciones en español se
entremezclan con los gemidos
de un motor diesel.
Al mirar por la ventana, se ve
a personas color café
recorriendo el barrio, cantando
y bailando. Alguien, haciendo
sonar la bocina, proclama:
“¡Abre los ojos! ¡Vamos al
parque!”
No es una escena de 1965
sino el verano del 2006, cuando
Grupo Zero, los artistas
callejeros más reconocidos de
México, pasaron sobre cercas,
ríos, desiertos, la Guardia
Nacional y los milicianos de
miniatura para invadir Denver.
Y para entretenernos.
Del 5 al 17 de junio, El
Centro Su Teatro auspicia la
presentación en Denver del
Grupo Zero, que además se
presentará en el Consulado de
México, mostrando su arte y
ofreciendo sus incomparables
actuaciones al público local,
gratuitamente y en los parques
de los barrios latinos.
Bajo la dirección del ilustre
Lalo “El Guajolote” Lopez,
Grupo Zero continúa con la
tradición de la carpa para su
teatro al aire libre.
Las carpas ganaron
popularidad en la época de la
Revolución Mexicana, cuando
los artistas allí actuaban para
aliviar al público de las
pesadas condiciones políticas.
En las carpas, los artistas
cantaban,
bailaban,
presentaban marionetas y
hacían participar a la
audiencia. En las carpas los
artistas presentaban sus
picardías, aunque no todos las
entendiesen.
Según Hugo Carbajal, de Su
Teatro, cuando la carpa llegaba
a una ciudad, los artistas
hablaban con la gente para
enterarse de los chismes
locales,
y
luego
se
improvisaban escenas con
respecto a la gente de esa
ciudad.
La gente se reía y a la vez se
olvidaba un poco de su difícil
situación.
De la misma manera, el
Teatro Chicano en Estados
Unidos usaba las actuaciones
para reflejar lo que sucedía en
la audiencia, inspirando y
educando a los espectadores,
satirizando a los dirigentes
políticos y mostrando la lucha
de los menos privilegiados.
La Carpa y el Teatro Chicano
con el teatro de los
trabajadores, o, como diría el
visionario brasileño Augusto
Boal, el Teatro de los
Oprimidos.
Según el autor y escritor
Tony García, director de El
Centro Su Teatro, el Grupo
Zero tiene ese componente de
análisis político, aunque no tan
marcado.
“El Teatro Chicano y la Carpa
usan la comedia para
compartir un mensaje serio”,
djo Carbajal.
“La audiencia aprecia el
humor
y
escucha
la
predicación. La comedia los
relaja, y uno les da duro con la
verdad cuando tienen la
guardia baja.”
Garcia encuentra humor
hasta en las verdaderas más
duras.
“Creo que los racistas son
cómicos.
Los
políticos
corruptos y belicosos son
cómicos. El racismo y la guerra
no lo son, pero las personas
que los promueven son
ridículamente
cómicos”,
comentó.
“Hay mucha gente en este
país que quiere que los
mexicanos sean invisibles. Yo
creo que los mexicanos deben
ser más visibles, y las
actuaciones de Grupo Zero
ayudarán a ganar visibilidad”,
agregó.
La visita de Grupo Zero es
parte de un programa
internacional de intercambio
cultural. Por ese programa. Su
Teatro viajará a México en el
2007.
“El pueblo siempre tuvo su
teatro. Los indígenas se
sentaban junto al fuego a
actuar como en la caza o a
burlarse de los españoles. Los
trabajadores lo usaban para
educarse y movilizarse.
Grupo Zero es un grupo de
teatro popular y nos alegra que
esté en Denver”, sostuvo
García.
Grupo Zero actuará el 9 de
junio en Swansea Park, 48th
Ave. y Clayton St.;
el 10 de junio en City Park, 17th
Ave. y York St., el 16 de junio
en West Bar Val Wood Park,
Cedar St. y Tejon St. y el 17 de
junio en Sloan’s Lake Park,
17th Ave. y Sheridan Blvd.
Las actuaciones son gratis y
comienzan a las 8:05pm.

Este Día del Padre, descarte la corbata y comparta un futuro
más saludable
El Día del Padre, 18 de junio,
puede no parecer un buen
momento para hablar a su
padre sobre su próstata, pero las
familias con historial de cáncer
de próstata pueden beneficiarse
al pasar información de padre
a hijo y a hermano, según nos
recomiendan los médicos de UT
Southwestern Medical Center.
El cáncer de próstata
constituye el cáncer más común

a uno de cada seis hombres en
el transcurso de su vida, dice
el Dr. Yair Lotan, profesor
auxiliar de urología.
El historial familiar de cáncer

mejores maneras de predecir
la enfermedad, ya que se tiene
el doble de riesgo si un
miembro de la familia es
afectado y aumenta de cinco a
once veces más el riesgo si dos
o tres parientes en primer
grado son afectados, dice el Dr.
Lotan.
“Afortunadamente, el índice
de curación de cáncer de
próstata es alto si se detecta
temprano,” dice el Dr. Lotan.
Los hombres que tienen
historial familiar de cáncer de
próstata deben comenzar a
examinarse
anualmente
mediante un examen rectal
digital y una prueba de
antígeno específico prostático
(PSA por sus siglas en inglés)
a la edad de 40 y deben
compartir esta información con
miembros de la familia, dice el
Dr. Lotan.
No permita que el rechazo a
visitar un doctor o la negación
de que pueda existir un
problema ponga su vida en
peligro.
Cómo Vivir y Prosperar en los EE.UU.
por Donna Poisl
Yo nací en los Estados
Unidos y me mude a Canadá
en 1978. Yo tuve que aprender
como obtener mi licencia de
manejo, abrir una cuenta
bancaria, obtener seguro
(aseguranza) y
todas las otras
cosas que sabia
que necesitaba. Yo
fui
muy
afortunada
porque los dos
sistemas eran muy
similares y el
lenguaje era el
mismo.
En 1995, me
mude de vuelta a
los
Estados
Unidos y tuve que
hacer todas las
cosas otra vez.
Pero otra vez, los
sistemas
eran
similares y el
lenguaje era el
mismo
y
de
nuevo,
los
sistemas y el
idioma era los
mísmos. Mientras
v e n d í a

y
propiedades entre
1996-2002,
encontré
a
muchos
inmigrantes que luchaban por
triunfar y decidí escribir una
guía para vivir en los Estados
Unidos y para ayudar a estos
nuevos residentes.
Yo sé lo duro que fue para
mí encontrar todo, me puedo
imaginar por completo lo
difícil que es para la gente de
diferentes
culturas
y
lenguajes. Este libro fue escrito
para ayudarles con las cosas
comunes y cotidianas que tiene
que hacer y para ayudarles a
obtener
información,
especialmente de las cosas que
son necesarias aquí y que
pueden ser nuevas para usted.
Espero que este libro le
ayude y le haga su vida más
fácil y mucho más placentera
en este país.

articulos han sido escrito para

cotidianas que necesite para

Encontrará que
muchas cosas que

información de su utilidad.
Usualmente la parte más dura al
aprender algo nuevo, es decidir
dónde comenzar a buscar la
información.
Sea un Buen Vecino
Hay un dicho antiguo que
dice: “Cuando esté en Roma haz
lo que los Romanos hacen”, lo
que significa: haga las cosas de
la manera que lo hace la gente
local.
Muchas veces cuando la gente
se muda a un nuevo vecindario
se comporta de la misma
manera que en su último
vecindario. Esto no siempre
complace a sus nuevos vecinos.
Si su último vecindario era en
un país diferente, esto puede
causar problemas más graves.
Cuando las personas de países
extranjeros se mudan a un
nuevo vecindario en los Estados
Unidos, a menudo se hacen
comentarios negativos.
Puede disminuir los conflictos
con sus vecinos siguiendo unas
pocas y sencillas reglas. Si usted
es el que tiene la grama más
nítida y la música más calmada,
no habrá ninguna queja suya.
Puede ser que sea puesto como
un buen ejemplo para alguno de
ellos, ya que no todos son los
mejores vecinos.
Muchas de las siguientes
sugerencias fueron tomadas de
un aviso en un complejo de
condominios y son buenas en
cualquier lugar:
• Si ve basura alrededor de su
vecindario recójala y póngala en
el cesto de
la basura, definitivamente
conserve su jardín limpio.
• Si tiene mascotas obtenga la

Anormalidades benignas en la mama también deben ser
consideradas como señal de riesgo
No todos los nódulos en la
mama son cancerosos. Incluso
un cierto nivel de nódulos y
áreas desiguales son normales
para la mayoría de las mujeres.
Sin embargo, estos nódulos
benignos pueden colocar a
algunas mujeres en una zona
de mayor riesgo de desarrollar
cáncer de mama.
“Durante los años de edad
reproductiva de la mujer, el
tejido de la mama tiene la
tendencia a desarrollar áreas
desiguales en su textura. Estos
nódulos, son llamamos
cambios fibroquísticos de las
mamas” dice Lisa Newman,
directora del Centro del
Cuidado de la Mama del
Centro Integral de Cáncer de
la Universidad de Michigan.
La mama está formada por
diferentes tipos de tejidos que
son influenciados por las
hormonas a través de los ciclos
menstruales de la mujer.
Estas fluctuaciones pueden
causar la formación de
distintos tipos de nódulos,
tales como nódulos de tejidos
benignos, llamados Adenomas
Fibrosos o un quiste relleno
con líquido. Estos, por lo
general, pueden ser detectados
durante el auto examen de
mama.
Es importante que un
médico evalúe cualquier
cambio, aunque Newman
advierte que sólo entre un 5 y
un 10 por ciento de las
mamografías realizadas por
cambios
fibroquísticos
requieren
pruebas
adicionales”. De todas las
biopsias, solo un 15 por ciento
terminan siendo cáncer.
“La mayoría de las biopsias
que necesitamos hacer por
anomalías de mamografía,
serán,
de
hecho,
completamente benignas”, dice
Newman. “Sin embargo, hay
ciertos cambios en la mama,
que
descubrimos
en
evaluaciones microscópicas y
señalan un mayor riesgo de
desarrollar cáncer de mama en
el futuro”.
Estos cambios son
inusuales—menos de un 10 por
ciento de todas las biopsias de
mama.
Estas
incluyen
condiciones médicas como
hiperplasia ductal atípica,
hiperplasia lobular atípica o
carcinoma lobular in situ.
“Cuando encontramos estos
modelos, o si una mujer sabe
que los ha tenido en biopsias
de mama anteriores, debe
hablar con su medico para
considerar tomar un fármaco
para reducir el riesgo de cáncer
de mama.
Por ello, es muy importante
que la paciente conozca
exactamente
que
fue
encontrado en el tejido de la
mama
en
el
informe
patológico, incluso si su
médico le ha dicho que es
totalmente benigno”, dice
Newman, profesora de cirugía
en la Escuela de Medicina de
la Universidad de Michigan.
Las mujeres con estos
modelos anormales que
también tienen una historia
familiar de cáncer de mama,
tienen aún mayor riesgo de
desarrollar cáncer de mama.
Gracias a las evaluaciones
realizadas con mamografías,
los médicos pueden descubrir
cánceres de mama muy
pequeños en sus estados
iniciales antes de que crezcan
hasta el punto de amenazar la
vida. Todas las mujeres desde
los 40 años deben tener una
mamografía anual. Las
mujeres que son evaluadas
regularmente, tienen un 30 por
ciento menos riesgo de morir
de cáncer de mama comparado
con las mujeres que no se hacen
mamografías anuales.
“Necesitamos aconsejar a las
mujeres sobre las maneras
adecuadas de realizar un
auoexamen de mama. También
debemos educar a la mujer
sobre descubrimientos en la
mama que son una señal de
verdadero peligro para el
cáncer de mama versus las
simples
nódulos
e
irregularidades en la mama”,
dice Newman.
“El mensaje básico es que
mantenerse alerta sobre los
cambios en el propio cuerpo es
absolutamente
esencial.
Realizar un auto examen
puede ser una maniobra muy
útil. Si una mujer detecta
cambios, debe de consultar a
su medico”, señala Newman.
Señales de enfermedad
benigna en la mama:
• Dolor o sensibilidad en
ambas mamas. Algunas
mujeres
con
cambios
fibroquísticos no sienten dolor,
pero detectan nódulos en la
mama.
• Nódulos en una o ambas
mamas, una o dos semanas
antes de iniciar el periodo
menstrual. El dolor de mama
se produce la mayoría de las
veces en el área superior y
externa de la mama.
Tratamientos para enfermedad
benigna de mama:
• Fármacos antiinflamatorios
sin esteroides, como ibuprofen,
para aliviar la inflamación y
dolor.
• Cambios en la dieta, como
reducir o eliminar la cafeína.
•
Modificaciones en la
vestimenta, incluso usar
sujetadores con buen soporte o
cambiar el tipo de sujetador.
• 1.000 miligramos de aceite
de prímula, dos a tres veces al
día.

Student loan borrowers qualify for
Federal Loan Consolidation
As one of the nation’s
leading FFELP student loan
consolidators, American
Education Services (AES)
encourages students, parents
and graduates with either
federal Stafford or PLUS loans
to consider loan consolidation
now, before interest rates
increase on July 1, 2006.
The federal Staf ford student
loan interest rate will be
increasing by almost two
percent, costing borrowers
thousands of dollars more in
repayment. By locking-in the
current low interest rates and
consolidating before July,
borrowers with a $25,000 loan
can save an average of $5,580
in interest.
“Students, par ents and
graduates could effectively cut
their monthly payments in
half by consolidating their
student loans,” said AES
President and CEO Dick
Willey . “With only one
month before the expected
two percent rate hike, we
strongly encourage borrowers
to take advantage of our
consolidation counseling
services to help determine
which loan repayment option
will benefit them.”
Loan consolidation helps
borrowers by locking-in a
lower fixed rate and by making
their repayment easier – either
by lowering their monthly
payments or by combining
multiple payments into one.
AES consolidation counselors
work with the borrower on all
debt management alternatives.
Students,
parents
and
graduates should review the
potential
impact
of
consolidation on their current
loan benefits and on the total
cost of their loan before
consolidating.
“Even with the rate hike on
the horizon – students, parents
and graduates should research
and choose their lender
wisely,” said Willey.
Borr owers could save
thousands of dollars more
through an AES consolidation
loan with an immediate
interest rate reduction for
automatic debit payments, an
interest rate reduction for ontime payments, and AES’
exclusive Upromise program.
The AES-Upromise program
enables the borrower to pay
down their consolidated loans
by making everyday purchases
from participating companies.
To sign-up for free, visit

AES has recently enhanced its

consolidation more convenient

Mexican WNT star Maribel Dominguez joins FC Indiana
FC Indiana, the reigning US
Open Cup and Women’s
Premier Soccer League (WPSL)
national champions, and
currently ranked No. 4 in the
world
by
<www.WomensWorldFootball.com>
has announced that forward
Maribel Dominguez will join
the team as an assistant coach/
player for the 2006 season.
Dominguez - nicknamed
“Marigol” - made her debut
with the Mexico Women’s
National Team in 1999 and has
scored 46 goals in 49
international appearances.
She was Mexico’s top scorer
at the Olympic Games, and
was ranked in FIFA’s top 25
women players in the world
for 2005.
Also in 2005, she became the
first woman to sign a
professional contract with a
Mexican men’s professional
club Celaya.
In 2003, Dominguez’s impact
on the Atlanta Beat (WUSA)
was instrumental to their
appearance in the WUSA
championship game.
She finished 10th in the
league in scoring, averaging 1
point per game.
“I am excited to join one of
the top women’s clubs in the
world,” said Dominguez. “I
have talked at length with my
Mexico WNT and Barcelona
teammate Paty Perez about FC
Indiana, and that’s why it was
an easy decision for me to
make.
Paty was with FC Indiana
last season and told me that
everything about the club was
first class.
With one year to go till the
Women’s World Cup in China,
I need to raise the level of my
training and competition.”
“As a coach, Maribel’s
international experience will
be invaluable to our young
players and we will involve
her in coaching right from the
start,” said head coach Shek
Borkowski.
“As a player, Maribel has a
very physical style and I like
the fact that she plays with an
edge. She has good speed,
good moves and ability to put
the ball in the net.”
Tickets are now available for
FC Indiana home-opening

Boston Aztecs add Mexican Striker Sensation
The Boston Aztecs of the East
Conference of the Women’s
Premier Soccer League (WPSL)
made it official as they signed
young Mexican striker
sensation Myriam Del Pozo for
the Summer 2006 season.
Myriam is a native of
Monterrey, Mexico where she
has made headlines as a
prolific scorer for the
Monterrey Technological
University.
Myriam, who is now
beginning to emerge on the
international scene, is said to
be following in the footsteps of
two prolific international
players from her native
country - Paty Perez and
Maribel Dominguez of the
Mexican
Women’s
National Team. Del Pozo
recently graduated
from the Monterrey
Te c h n o l o g i c a l
University with a
degree
in
Architecture, is a
member of the
Mexican WNT Pool and hopes
to be named to the squad for
the upcoming 2007 FIFA
Women’s World Cup being
held in China.
Myriam arrived in the US on
Friday, June 9th with the hopes
of increasing her international
experience, and she is
getting the opportunity to
do just that with the
Boston Aztecs of the
WPSL. Head Coach
Dushawne Simpson
didn’t know what
to expect from the
young striker at
first, but she
quickly demonstrated why her
peers and friends speak highly
of her.
“We were doing a finishing
drill during a recent practice,
and she (Myriam) just knows
how to do it at a world class
level,” said Simpson.
The Boston Aztecs, who
finished with a 3-9-1 record in
their inaugural season, are
now 2-0-1 in their first three
games of the season, and with
the addition of Del Pozo to the
team their season record is sure
to be filled with much success.
“We want the club and the
league to be as successful as
possible, and bringing Myriam
to the Boston Aztecs is
definitely the right step to take
to reach that success,” said
Edgar de Leon, Dir. of
Operations for the Boston
Aztecs. “We are committed to
bring the best possible talent to
the club to show our
community that women’s
soccer is filled with talent and
flavor.”

The second was to augment that core.
Caton announced his inaugural
recruiting class Thursday which included
eight freshman and one junior college
transfer.
“The newcomers will fill the holes
around a solid foundation of returning
players,” said Caton. “Several of these
players will be expected to come in and
contribute immediately.”
The immediate area of need was at point
guard, a spot so glaringly deficient a
season ago that interim coach Doug
Schakel took to having power forward
Patrick Hannaway bring the ball up the
floor. Caton’s filled that void with Nic
Fuller, a transfer from Otero Junior
College.
Unlike previous years when the UCCS
roster was full of junior college transfers,
the 5-foot-11 Fuller was the only JUCO
among Caton’s signees.
Also at point guard will be Ben
Feilmeier, a 6-foot freshman from
Colorado Springs’ Liberty High School. A
three-time academic all-state honoree,
Feilmeier averaged 14 points, 3.8 assists.
2.7 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game as a
senior for the Lancers.

UCCS announces recruiting class Cont. from page 10
Having addressed the point
guard void, Caton turned his
eye to perimeter shooting in
hopes of strengthening a UCCS
offense that was 12th in the 14team Rocky Mountain Athletic
Conference in field goal
percentage a year ago and 10th
in 3-point percentage. He
found one of the best in Nick
Taylor.
Taylor was the player of the
year in San Diego’s Grossmont
South League after averaging
27.3 points per game for
Granite Hills High School. He
was also named first-team allDivision I for the San Diego
area, which regularly produces
dozens of NCAA Division I
players each year. The 6-foot-2
guard led the San Diego
section in 3-pointers made
with 132, 51 better than the
next best total.
Another shooter added was
Joe Scott, a 6-foot-4 swingman
who averaged three 3-pointers
per game as a senior at De La
Salle High School in
Minneapolis. Scott was named
Class 3A all-state after
averaging 17 points per game
and leading his team to a state
title. He also averaged six
rebounds, four assists and
three steals per game. With
those needs addressed, Caton
looked to the future.
Hannaway and center Bly
McGuire, the stars of the 200506 Mountain Lions, will both
be entering their senior season.
With that in mind, Caton
added slasher Kyle Perkins
and post man Eric Davis.
Perkins, who averaged 21.9
points
per
game
at
Montezuma-Cortez High
School, was named Class 4A
honorable mention by the
Rocky Mountain News. While
his season rebounding
statistics were not available, he
averaged 7.1 boards over the
first 10 games of the season
when that stat was recorded.
Davis put up impressive
numbers at Skyline High
School in Idaho Falls, Idaho,
averaging 18 points and 10
rebounds per game. An allHigh Country Conference
selection in both basketball and
football, he made 66 percent of
his field goal attempts and 86
percent of his free throws.
Adding post depth will be
another Colorado Springs
player, Chris Mayerl, a 6-foot8 freshman from Palmer High
School. Other recruits include:
Jason Nye, a 6-foot-6 wing
from Golden, and Aaron Cain,
a 6-foot guard from Falcon.

National Army Band
performance on July 4th
In a rare appearance west of
the Mississippi, the 65 member
US Army Field Band and 29
member Chorus will join the
Colorado
Springs
Philharmonic
for
the
orchestra’s annual July 4th
concert in Memorial Park.
“Although they typically
stay on the east coast
performing in Washington DC
where they are based, or in
Boston with the Boston Pops;
this year they are breaking
with tradition and coming
west. Apparently they made
inquiries and determined that
Colorado Springs has the
largest audience for its July 4th
Philharmonic concert of any
orchestra in Colorado or the
surrounding states. That and
the caliber of the orchestra
convinced them to come here,”
said Susan Greene, the
orchestra’s Executive Director.
The Field Band has also agreed
to perform at the orchestra’s
annual July 5th concert in
Woodland Park.
Fr om Boston to Bombay,
Tokyo to Toronto, The United
States Army Field Band has
been thrilling audiences of all
ages for more than half a
century. As the premier touring
musical representative for the
United States Army, this
internationally-acclaimed
organization travels thousands
of miles each year presenting
a variety of music to
enthusiastic
audiences
throughout the nation and
abroad. Through these
concerts, the Field Band keeps
the will of the American people
behind the members of the
armed forces and supports
diplomatic efforts around the
world.
The United States Army Field
Band is considered by music
critics to be one of the most
versatile and inspiring musical
organizations in the world. Its
members, selected by highlycompetitive
audition,
represent some of the finest
musical talent in America.
More than five decades as the
military’s most traveled
musicians have earned them
the title, “The Musical
Ambassadors of the Army.”
Colorado Springs Mayor
Lionel Rivera stated “The city
of Colorado Springs is thrilled
to be rolling out the welcome
mat for the United States Army
Field Band and Chorus.
Considering the significant
role the military and especially
Fort Carson play in the quality
of this city’s life, it is a perfect

Online journal captures
Silverado owners’ stories
After
receiving
overwhelming nationwide
response to their Silverado
200,000 Mile Club, Chevrolet is
asking Silverado owners to
share their stories and
photographs as
part of an online
journal
and
sweepstakes.
Chevy is looking
for 200,000 plus
mile
trucks
throughout
Colorado.
“It is no surprise
to us that the
200,000 Mile Club’s enrollment
has grown quickly. We have
tapped into a very passionate
group of owners – some,
driving Chevy pick-ups with
over a million miles,” said Ed
Peper, Chevrolet General
Manager.
“But it has become clear that
there are stories behind every
mile and our members are
anxious to tell those tales.”
On Monday, June 5,
Chevrolet upgraded the
the
spirit
of
“most
dependable” and “longest
lasting.”
These trucks and their owners
will be acknowledged at the
State Fair of Texas in Dallas,
TX, where the new 2007
Chevrolet Silverado will be
unveiled.
Last month, the Chevrolet
division of General Motors
announced a nationwide
search for personally owned
Silverado trucks with 200,000
miles or more to join the
Silverado 200,000 Mile Club.
Since then, <www.chevy.com/
200k> has had over 5000
visitors.
“Driving 200,000 miles is like
driving your Silverado around
the world eight times,” said
Peper. “But we are after more
than just mileage. This
outreach celebrates Silverado’s
legacy of quality and
endurance and hopes to
capture stories that show the
integral role these trucks have
played in American life – from
our farms to our factories, from
our countryside to our cities.”
The Chevrolet Silverado is
GM’s top selling vehicle and
has earned a reputation for
top-notch
performance,
dependability and quality.
Chevy pick-up trucks were
first built in 1918 and there are
still millions on the road.
Chevrolet is looking for
personally owned, full-size
Chevy pickup trucks with
200,000 miles or more to join
the Silverado 200,000 Mile
Club at <www.chevy.com/

(NAPSA)-Chances are it’s
happened to you-an errant
stone cracks your windshield.
Now what?
Replacing a damaged
windshield is more than just a
dollars-and-cents decision.
According to a leading
windshield manufacturer,
your windshield not only
helps protect you and your
car ’s occupants from the
elements, it also plays a major
role in your safety.
Here are some important
points to remember:
• The windshield is a key
structural element of your car.
• Proper adhesive selection is
critical to installation and
structural integrity.
•
Original
equipment
windshields meet federal
safety standards.
• The visual quality of original
equipment windshields is first
rate-not necessarily true for
knock-off versions.
• Knock-off
windshields
may
not
provide the
same level of
UV
light
protection,
which could
lead to accelerated fading of
your vehicle’s upholstery and
interior surfaces.
The windshield engineers at
Carlite(r) have some tips to
keep in mind at windshield
replacement time.
Ask for an original
equipment windshield and
factory-quality adhesives/
sealants, installed by AGRSScertified professionals. Laws in
some states require that your
installer inform you when
replacing your glass with a
non-original part. Original
equipment windshields fit best
and maintain the structural
integrity of your vehicle, which
is critical in case of an accident.
Original equipment
windshields typically have
better
optical
quality.
Distortion affects the way the
driver sees the road-and other
cars. Windshield wipers are
designed to work best with
factory windshields which
have designed-in curvatures.
Knock-off windshields tend to
have less curvature, which can
result in flat spots where the
wipers may
skip or not
clear the glass
as effectively.
Knock-off
windshields
sometimes are
made with
thinner glass that can allow
more noise in, which is
particularly irritating to
owners of upscale automobiles
who paid for, and expect, a
quiet ride.
Also, an improperly installed
windshield could pop loose
when the passenger air bag
deploys, potentially reducing
its ability to protect the
passenger.
So when that stone chip or
crack shows up on your
windshield, be sure to protect
yourself, and all those who
ride with you, by insisting on
a brand-for-brand replacement
windshield like Carlite
branded windshields. It’s up to
you to decide which kind of
replacement windshield you
want. For more information on
replacing your damaged
windshield,
visit
www.carlite.com.
Motorcycle Helmets
(NAPSA)-Americans have a
healthy
appetite
for
motorcycles and all-terrain
vehicles.
Since 1996, sales have
jumped 200 percent, putting
more
than
5
million
motorcyclists on U.S. roads
and trails today.
Unfortunately, America’s
r i d i n g
habits are
not
as
h e a l t h y.
Motorcycle
fatalities
are rising
as helmet
u
s
e
declines, according to the
National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration. Head
injury is the leading cause of
death in motorcycle crashes.
Today, top-quality helmets
are more affordable and
accessible than ever before.
Wal*Mart sells motorcycle
helmets starting at under $50
made by Bell, inventor of the
full-face motorcycle helmet.
When shopping for a helmet,
remember to look for the DOT
sticker, which indicates that the
helmet meets the U.S.
Department
of
Transportation’s Federal
Motor Vehicle Safety Standard.

(NAPSA)-With diabetes on
the rise, doctors are extremely
concerned about associated
risks such as heart disease and
stroke, which together kill two
out of three people with
diabetes. Fortunately, a recent
study indicates that more
people with diabetes are
making the link between
diabetes and their increased
risk for heart disease and
stroke.
According to a 2005
awareness survey conducted
by the American Diabetes
Association (ADA) and
American
College
of
Cardiology (ACC), 45 percent
of people with diabetes
understand their increased risk
for heart disease, which is up
from 35 percent in 2001.
Experts believe even more
awareness is needed, however.
The ADA and ACC continue to
work together to share
important information, tools
and resources to encourage
people with diabetes-and
health care providers-to learn
more about the impact of
diabetes on the heart.
Other findings from the 2005
ADA/ACC awareness survey
show:
• 69 percent know they may
develop high blood pressure
(38 percent in 2001).
• 64 percent know they are at
risk for cholesterol problems
(37 percent in 2001).
Importantly, more people with
diabetes are talking to their
health care providers about
managing
diabetes
comprehensively:
• 45 percent of people with
diabetes now have a goal for
blood glucose levels (30
percent in 2003).
• 57 percent have a goal for
blood pressure (34 percent in
2003).
• 61 percent have a goal for
cholesterol (34 percent in 2003).

encouraging, but awareness

Memorial Health System introduces revolutionary cancer treatment
Memorial Health System’s
Cancer Center is taking cancer
treatment to the next level
through its introduction of the
TomoTherapy
Hi-Art
System—a breakthrough
radiotherapy technology
combining CT (Computed
Tomography)
scanning,
sophisticated IMRT (Intensity
Modulated
Radiation
Therapy), patient positioning
and helical/spiral delivery in
one setting.
Memorial’s Cancer Center is
the only health care facility in
the state of Colorado—one of
just 62 sites nationwide—to
offer
this
world-class
technology for treating a wide
range of cancers, including
patients with multiple tumors
and those disqualified from
conventional
radiation
therapy.
“Our goals is to win the war
against cancer,” says Dr. Fred
Robertson, CEO of the
Wi s c o n s i n - b a s e d
TomoTherapy, Inc.
“We set out to integrate and
simplify the radiation therapy
process while improving
accuracy. Traditional radiation
therapies often require a
patient to transfer between
several different stations to
receive treatment, which takes
time. Our system enables
clinicians to plan, verify and
deliver treatment in one
system.
It can also reduce the chance
of errors since all patient
information is contained in one
unit, along with reducing
patient treatment time.”
Key
features
of
the
TomoTherapy Hi-Art System:
• 360-degree treatment
delivery minimizing radiation
Tips For Healthy Trips
(NAPSA)-You may want the
first person you tell about an
upcoming vacation to be your
insurance agent. The U.S.
Department
of
State
recommends travelers check to
see if their health insurance is
valid in different destinations,
before heading off on a trip.
Doing so could help save you
more than a few headaches
while you’re on the road. Try
these additional tips for
staying
healthy
while
traveling:
Know Before You Go
Talk to your doctor about the
places you plan to visit and
find out if you need any
vaccinations before going.
Remember that the Centers for
Disease
Control
and
Prevention says some vaccines
take up to six weeks to become
fully effective. That means if
you need a shot, you should try
to get it well before your actual
trip.
Healthy Travels
Pack prescription medication
and basic over-the-counter
medicine in your carry-on
luggage-not in your checked
bags. That way, if your checked
bags get lost, it will just be an
inconvenience and not an
emergency. Also, make an
effort to sample the local fare,
but be certain to tell your
waiter about any food allergies
you may have before ordering.
Fun In The Sun
Even if you’re not going to
Tahiti, odds are you’ll be
walking around in the sun. Be
sure to protect yourself by
Heart Disease Link
Cont. from page 18
enough to keep pace with the growing prevalence of
diabetes.
Recent statistics indicate diabetes has risen by over
14 percent since last estimates in 2003. The need for
increased education and awareness about the link
between diabetes and heart disease is now more
critical than ever.
Armed with the best information, people with
diabetes can properly manage their diabetes,
understand their risks for complications such as heart
disease and stroke, and take action to live a longer,
healthier life.
To learn more about diabetes and heart disease, call

using a sunblock with an SPF
of at least 15 and a widebrimmed hat. Just know that
not all hats block the sun’s rays
equally well. Some are
specifically designed and
certified to offer maximum sun
protection and some are not.
For instance, hats made by
Tilley Endurables are certified
with an Ultraviolet Protection
Factor of 50+ (the highest
rating given). Tilley Mesh Hats
are also equipped with new
“3D” mesh fabric as well as
Hydrofil(tm) Anti-Sweat
Bands.
Like all the company’s hats,
they block 98 percent of the
sun’s rays and are designed to
keep travelers’ heads cool.

• Ability to treat multiple sites
simultaneously.
• CT imaging precisely

• 15-minute treatment that is

Radiation Oncologists Mark
Hazuka and Jane Ridings
manage all TomoTherapy cases
at Memorial’s Cancer Center,
in addition to providing
physician consultations and
referrals.
“TomoTherapy is ideally
suited for treatment of head
and neck, brain and pediatric
cancers—among others—
where
avoidance
of
uninvolved organs is highly
critical,” says Dr. Ridings.
“Prostate and pancreatic
cancer patients also are prime
candidates for TomoTherapy,
because the targeted delivery
system can adjust for
unanticipated organ motion,
unlike
conventional
radiotherapy.
With TomoTherapy, we even
have the capability to treat
multiple brain metastases
using image-guided IMRT.”

COMMUNITY NEWS
How to Live & Thrive in the US
by Donna Poisl
I was born and raised in the
United States and moved to
Canada in 1978.
I had to find out how to get
my driver license, open bank
accounts, get insurance and all
the other things I knew I
needed. I was very fortunate
because the two systems were
similar and the language was
the same.
In 1995, I moved back to the
United States and had to do all
those things again. And again,
the systems were similar and
the language was the same.
While selling insurance and
real estate from 1996-2002, I
met many immigrants who
were struggling to succeed and
I decided to write a guide to
living in the US to help these
new residents.
I know how hard it was for
me to find everything and can
only imagine how difficult it is
for people from entirely
different cultures and different
languages. This book was
written to help you with the
common, everyday things the
things that are necessary here
might be new to you.
I hope this book helps you
and makes your life in this
country much easier and more
enjoyable.
Welcome to the United States!
You might have just moved
here or maybe you’re thinking
Donna Poisl
about moving here. You may
have lived here several years
and still struggle with some
things. This book has been
written to help you find the
everyday things you need so
you can fit into this country
better.
You’ll find that many things
you have to do here are done
differently than they’re done in
your country. Some are the
same, but many are not. I’ll
give you some practical
information and tips to help
you choose a bank, get health
care or medical insurance, get
a car, a credit card and much
more.
Whenever you go to social
services offices, banks and
other offices, you will almost
always find brochures in
English. Take one to keep at
home, it will give you the local
information and telephone
numbers for their office. Ask
if they have brochures in your
language and if they do, take
one or two of these, too.
These articles will give you
general
information,
addresses and phone numbers
and some website addresses.
Most importantly, it will help
you figure out where you can
find the precise information
you need.
If I only give you a website
address and you don’t have a
computer, you can use the
computer at your library with
no charge.
Some people reading these
articles and looking for
information will be very well
educated, others won’t be. I
have tried to make it useful for
everyone.
So if some things in it are too
difficult or other things too
easy, I hope you can get at
least some information you
can use.
Often the hardest part of
learning something new is
figuring out where to start
looking for information.
Be a Good Neighbor
There is an old saying
“When in Rome, do as the
Romans do”, which simply
means to do things the way
the local people do them.
Many times when
people move into a new
neighborhood, they
behave the way they
did in their last
neighborhood and it
doesn’t always please
their new neighbors.
When
their
last
neighborhood was a
different country, it
might cause even
bigger problems. When
people from foreign
countries move into a
neighborhood in the
US, negative comments
are often made.
You can minimize
conflicts with your
neighbors by following
a few simple rules. If
you are the one with the
neatest yard and
quietest music, there
won’t
be
any
complaints about you
and maybe you will be
setting a good example
for some of them. They
are not all the best
neighbors either.
Most of the following
suggestions were taken
from a notice at a
condo/townhouse/
apartment complex and
are good anywhere:
• If you see trash around your
neighborhood, pick it up and
put it in the waste basket.
Definitely keep your own yard
clean.
• If you have pets, get them
licensed and keep them on a
leash. When taking your pets
for a walk, carry a trash bag to
pick up their droppings.
• If one of your cars is not
working, and you aren’t going
to fix it – get rid of it. Check
your lease or association
agreement, working on the
engine of a car in your
driveway might not be
allowed.
• Don’t play your music very
loud. Remember, we don’t all
like the same music, especially
early in the morning or late at
night. You don’t want a visit
from the police telling you to
turn down your music.
•
Find out if your
neighborhood
has
an
association. Ask them what
you can do to be a good
neighbor.
Attend
neighborhood meetings. If you
don’t speak the language very
well yet, get someone who
does to go with you. These
meetings are a good place to
meet your neighbors, too.
• Apartments and many
neighborhoods have limited
parking spaces for visitors.
Make sure you let your family
and friends know where they
can park. If parking spaces are
assigned, only use your own
space.
• If you have a lawn, keep it
neatly cut and use the mower
during reasonable hours – not
early in the morning before
neighbors are awake.
• Most apartment complexes
have facilities for parties. Use
them.
• Clean up after you use the
open spaces (swimming pool,
picnic, playground) in your
area. Don’t leave your trash for
others to pick up.
• Be courteous to your
neighbors. Do not block their
cars in, even if you’re only
going in for a few seconds.
• Tell your family and friends
not to honk their horn when
they come to pick you up for a
function or work. Have them
park the car and knock on the
door or use their cell phone
and call you.
• If you are having a party, tell
your neighbors and invite them
! It’s a great opportunity to
meet them and for them to
meet you. Chances are good
that they won’t join you, but at
least you asked and it lets them
know that you will be making
noise. Ask them to tell you if
the noise is too loud and you
will be quieter. You don’t want
them complaining to the
police.
• If there is any kind of severe
weather, check on your
neighbors. See if they have
adequate
heat,
air
conditioning, food, water – all
the things that can be a
problem if the electricity goes
out or if there is flooding or
snowstorms or something else
out of the ordinary.
