Villaraigosa pide legalizar

American States General Assembly
“The ties that bind the Americas are particularly vivid here in Florida. This state has
benefited because immigrants from throughout the hemisphere have made their homes
here,” commented President George W. Bush during his address to the Organization of
American States General Assembly Monday, June 6, 2005, in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
El alcalde electo de Los
Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa,
pidió una política de inmigración
“más inteligente”, que permita la
legalización de millones de
indocumentados en lugar de
“castigarlos” con mayores
restricciones.
“Necesitamos una política de
inmigración más realista, que
refleje la realidad de Estados
Unidos”, dijo Villaraigosa durante
la inauguración en Washington de
las nuevas oficinas del Consejo
Nacional de La Raza, en un
edificio que lleva el nombre de su
fundador y presidente por muchos
años, Raúl Yzaguirre.
Señaló que “hay que educar” a
los sectores conservadores de
Estados Unidos que quieren
“castigar” a los migrantes con
medidas como la nueva ley
antinmigrante Real ID o
“identificación real”, que prohíbe
a los estados la emisión de
licencias de conducir para los
indocumentados e impulsa la
construcción de una barda
fronteriza.
El alcalde electo de Los Angeles
indicó, sin embargo, que Estados
Unidos “es un país de leyes” que
hay que respetar, al igual que
México tiene su política migratoria
que no incluye la posibilidad de
abrir sus fronteras a inmigrantes de
El Salvador o Guatemala.

primer alcalde latino de Los
Angeles, California, desde 1872,

Pueblo Reservoir fish are safe for consumption and two others killed in Iraq
A study recently completed by
the Colorado Department of Public
Health and Environment shows
that fish in Pueblo Reservoir are
well below health-based standards
for mercury and are safe for
consumption.
Douglas H. Benevento, the
Department of Public Health and
Environment’s executive director,
said, “This is very good news.
Tests performed on fish caught at
the reservoir showed that they
contained very low levels of
mercury.
“Because the consumption of fish
See pages
2 & 12
containing high levels of mercury
can be dangerous to health, we
wanted to make certain that fish
caught at Pueblo Reservoir are safe
for consumption - and they are. The
results were a very pleasant
surprise because the department’s
experts thought we might find
higher levels of mercury in fish
from this water body because of the
species of fish that usually are
caught there.”
The fish tested as part of the study
being conducted by the
department’s Water Quality
Control Division were caught in
October 2004 with the assistance
of the Colorado Division of
Wildlife. This is the first such test
conducted on fish from Pueblo
Reservoir.
Benevento said, “The Water
Quality Control Division
conducted its first investigation
and is issuing the first report in
connection with this study on fish
in Pueblo Reservoir because the
reservoir is one of the state’s
leading fishing water bodies.”
Benevento explained that the
report on mercury levels in fish

Must see TV
I just reviewed La Raza de Colorado a Rocky Mountain PBS
documentary. I was anxious to see this production and reviewed the
one-hour episode La Historia, part one of a two-part documentary
about the history of Latinos in Colorado. This segment airs on PBS
at 9 p.m. on June 27.
I was pleasantly surprised. This episode covers the 1500s to the
1940s. Yes, 1500s, long before the pilgrims landed as they exclaim
in most history books.
“This, simply put, is not your traditional historical documentary. It’s a rich and colorful production
that hopefully will set new standards for how documentaries are done from now on, “ said Lisa
Olken, series producer told me in February. “ It’s also not a typical Anglo whitewashed view of
Mexican, Latino or Hispanic history and culture. It’s their history as told through the people who
lived it - their experiences, their remembrances and their analysis of the people, trends and events
that shaped the Latino community in Colorado.”
This program is well done; it should be must see TV for all middle school and high school students.
You can watch this program as a family. Record the program, and then get together with the extended
family, including those over 60. Many of you will find that the older ones will provide more insights
into the history being rendered. Make it a point to see this special program.
Mark it down now: Monday night, June 27th at 9 p.m. You will be glad you did.

Newman University launches MSW program
Pike’s Peak area residents who
want to earn a Master of Social
Work (MSW) degree will soon be
able to complete their studies
entirely in Colorado Springs,
thanks to a new program that will
be offered by Newman University,
a regional and international
Catholic university based in
Wichita, KS.
The Newman program, offered
in partnership with Catholic
Charities of Colorado Springs, will
begin in August 2005.
The Newman program will be
one of only three MSW programs
in Colorado fully accredited by the
Council on Social Work Education
(CSWE). The Newman program,
however, offers several benefits
over other programs in the area,
according to Newman Dean of the
School of Applied Sciences and
Director of the Social Work
Program Michael Smith, PhD.
“We go beyond a generalist
social work approach by preparing
students for leadership in direct,
family-centered social work
practice,” Dr. Smith said. “We’ve
also designed the program to be
very convenient for students. All
classes will be held in Colorado
Springs during evenings and
weekends, we will have two fulltime, permanent faculty members
on site, and we will arrange
internships at agencies near
students’ homes if at all possible.”
Newman will offer both a
traditional program and an
advanced program for students
who have already earned a
bachelor of social work degree
from a CSWE accredited program.
The advanced option includes a
wavier of the first 34 semester
credit hours. Students who qualify
could complete the MSW program
in three semesters attending
classes full time, or five semesters
attending part time. Under the
traditional program, full time
students could complete the degree
in five semesters. Both tracks
feature a concentrated weekend
format.

“I understand Mexican
authorities have resisted
extraditing individuals to a
different country for trial if the
death penalty is a possibility. I
have also been told that the City
of Denver’s District Attorney’s
office is working with the
Department of State and Mexican
authorities on a possible
arrangement that would address
this concern.
“Although I appreciate the
Department of State’s involvement
to date, I am concerned that this
extradition case will not receive
the high-level attention it
deserves… Please know that I will
be monitoring this extradition case
very closely in the coming weeks.
I would appreciate it greatly if you
would keep me informed of any
new developments,” the letter said.
Allard asks Secretary of State Rice to
intervene in Mexican extradition case
U.S. Senator Wayne Allard (RColorado) on Monday asked
Secretary of State Condoleezza
Rice to intervene directly with the
government of Mexico in order to
get a Mexican national being held
by Mexican police extradited to
Colorado to stand trial on charges
he shot and killed a Denver police
officer on May 8, 2005
“This individual committed an
outrage in our country and
deserves to stand trial here, not
cower behind Mexico’s extradition
laws,” Senator Allard said. “He is
accused of shooting two Denver
police officers, killing one and
gravely injuring the other. Justice
will not be served unless he is
returned Colorado to face the
charges against him.”
In a letter to Secretary of State
Rice, Senator Allard wrote, “I urge
you to make this case a top priority
and to use what ever diplomatic
tool at your disposal to secure as
quickly as possible the extradition
of Raul Garcia-Gomez to Denver.”
Raul Garcia-Gomez, a Mexican
citizen working illegally in the
United States, allegedly shot two
Denver Police officers, Detectives
Donald R. Young and John
Bishop. Detective Young died of
his injuries.
After fleeing to Mexico from the
United States, Garcia-Gomez was
taken into custody in Culiacan in
Northwest Mexico on June 4,
2005.
“The murder of Detective Young
has touched many Coloradoans
who respect and appreciate the
service performed by law
enforcement officers. Many of my
constituents view this extradition
case as a test of our nation’s ability

in Pueblo Reservoir is the first to
be completed as part of a new,
larger study, launched in 2004 by
the Water Quality Control
Division’s Monitoring Unit. Bob
McConnell, the unit manager, with
Lucia Machado, an aquatic
researcher for the unit, are
directing the study.
McConnell said that the study
will evaluate mercury levels in fish
in approximately 100 lakes,
reservoirs and rivers throughout
Colorado to determine if mercury
consumption advisories should be
issued or continued for fish caught
in those water bodies.
McConnell said that the study’s
primary focus is on reservoirs
particularly popular for fishing.
Humans of all ages are
susceptible to chronic mercury
poisoning. However, pregnant
women and children under age 6
are especially susceptible to
mercury poisoning, which may
harm developing nervous systems
in fetuses and young children,
permanently affecting their ability
to learn.
Adults exposed to high levels of
mercury also can suffer from

100 millones de dólares en 2003 a
56 mil millones en 2004.
El presidente del BID dijo en el
discurso que del total de remesas
de Estados Unidos a América
Latina por 45 mil millones de
dólares al año, al menos 14 por
ciento, esto es, 16 mil 600 millones
de dólares, tienen como destino a
México. Esto significa, dijo, que
el mayor volumen de movimiento
de remesas se registra entre
Estados Unidos y México.
Aunque India es el mayor
receptor de remesas del mundo,
con unos 19 mil millones de
dólares el último año, la fuente de
esos recursos está diversificada
entre Europa, Estados Unidos y los
países petroleros del Golfo Pérsico
y Arabia Saudí. En cambio,
prácticamente la totalidad de las
remesas que recibe México tienen
su origen en Estados Unidos.

En el mismo foro, la secretaria
mexicana de Desarrollo Social,
Josefina Vázquez Mota, habló
sobre el programa 3x1 establecido
por el gobierno del presidente
Vicente Fox, que consiste en que
por cada dólar que aportan los
migrantes a financiar un proyecto
en su comunidad, el gobierno
federal, los estados y municipios
aportan otros tres.
Vázquez Mota dijo que a través
de este programa las remesas de
los mexicanos tienen un efecto
multiplicador con las aportaciones
de los gobiernos federal, estatal y
municipal.
"Sin duda, el programa 3 x 1 ha
resultado uno de los instrumentos
más eficaces para acompañar la
inversión social en las
comunidades mexicanas’’, dijo la
funcionaria. Cuando el programa
comenzó en 2002, estaban
involucrados 20 "clubes" de
migrantes, cifra que ha crecido a
527, con algunos en Alaska, Hawai
y Canadá. En este foro, el
presidente del BID -que dejará el
cargo en septiembre- comentó que
el organismo está "mirando con
mucho interés" el programa 3 x 1
del gobierno mexicano "y
quisiéramos ver si podemos
realmente a partir de la experiencia
de México replicarlo hacia otros
países de América Latina".
Garganta profunda odiaba a Nixon:
Bob Woodward
Un encuentro casual en 1970 del
periodista Bob Woodward con un
importante ejecutivo de la Oficina
Federal de Investigaciones (FBI,
por sus siglas en inglés) se
transformó en amistad, y dos años
más tarde el funcionario federal se
convirtió en Garganta profunda, la
fuente que reveló las claves del
escándalo Watergate, el cual
ocasionó la dimisión del entonces
presidente de Estados Unidos, el
republicano Richard Nixon.
Entrar por la puerta trasera de
una casa, no utilizar el coche
propio y cambiar varias veces de
taxi, eran algunas de las
instrucciones que por razones de
seguridad daba el número dos de
la FBI, Mark Felt, a Woodward,
para sus encuentros durante el
escándalo.
Dos días después de que Felt
revelara que él era Garganta
profunda, Woodward relata en The
Washington Post que se dirigió al
agente de la FBI luego de que Carl
Bernstein y él escribieran sobre el
robo en la sede del Comité
Nacional Demócrata en el edificio
Watergate de Washington.
Woodward dijo que en un
principio Felt le comentó que el
caso del robo en el Watergate iba
a “calentarse” y colgó la llamada
telefónica, pero luego comenzó a
guiar a los dos periodistas en la
historia.
“Felt pensaba que estaba
protegiendo a la Oficina al
encontrar una manera, por
clandestina que fuera, de sacar
alguna de la información de las
entrevistas y ficheros de la FBI
para el público”, que mostraran la
responsabilidad de Nixon y su
gente.
“No sentía nada más que
desprecio hacia la Casa Blanca de
Nixon y sus esfuerzos por
manipular la Oficina por razones
políticas”, agregó Woodward.

de Estados Unidos en renunciar, en
agosto de 1974.
En tanto, el ex candidato
presidencial George McGovern
dijo este jueves que los medios
estadounidenses necesitan de una
garganta profunda dentro del
gobierno de George W. Bush para
que revele cómo Estados Unidos
fue “engañado” respecto a Irak.
“Necesitamos a alguien así, que
tenga un alto cargo, para que nos
diga qué está sucediendo
realmente. Sabemos que hemos
sido engañados en Irak”, afirmó a
la emisora Fox News Radio el ex
senador, quien compitió con
Nixon.

Los veteranos que participaron en combates beben alcohol y fuman más que otros veteranos
que nunca participaron en acciones bélicas y también son más proclives a la obesidad, según un
nuevo estudio realizado por investigadores de la facultad de Salud Pública de la Universidad de
North Carolina, en Chapel Hill. Anne-Marie Johnson, candidata a doctora en epidemiología,
encabezó el estudio que concluyó que los veteranos de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, la Guerra de
Corea y la de Vietnam tenían 1.6 más probabilidades de ser intensos bebedores de alcohol y 1.2
más probabilidades de ser intensos fumadores, con respecto a los que no participaron en combates.
Se define como un bebedor intenso el que toma 14 o más bebidas alcohólicas en una semana.
Según la investigación, los veteranos que combatieron también tenían 1.5 más probabilidades
de ser obesos que su contraparte. Dicho esto, los niveles más altos en el consumo de cigarrillos,
alcohol y obesidad sitúa a los combatientes en un grupo de mayor riesgo de ser víctimas de
infartos y de otras enfermedades cardiovasculares, dijo Johnson.
“[El combate] es un elemento de estrés crónico y persistente”, dijo Johnson en la Conferencia
anual de Enfermedades Cardiovasculares, Epidemiología y Prevención de la Asociación
Estadounidense del Corazón, celebrada en Washington, DC el 2 de mayo.

Numerosos hispanos padecen de dolores sin
tratamiento médico
Un nuevo estudio ha
descubierto que un sorprendente
número de hispanos sufre de
dolores persistentes, y gran parte
de los mismos no solicita
tratamiento a un médico que
pudiera brindarles ayuda.
La investigación, publicada en
la revista “Journal of Pain”, revela
que el 20 por ciento de los
estadounidenses que padecen de
dolores crónicos jamás han
consultado a un médico para la
solución del problema, mientras
que sólo un 5 por ciento ha visitado
a un especialista en dolores.

Por su parte, los hispanos fueron
menos propensos a solicitar
atención médica que los
caucásicos o los afroamericanos.
Además, el 35 por ciento de los
caucásicos, el 39 por ciento de los
afroamericanos y el 28 por ciento
de los hispanos; reportaron la
presencia de dolores crónicos.
Tales cifras confirman “la
magnitud del dolor como un
problema de salud en la nación”,
según afirmó el Dr. Russell
Portenoy, Presidente de la Junta de
Medicina del Dolor y Cuidados
Paliativos, y autor principal del
estudio citado.
En los Estados Unidos, según
reporta la Asociación Americana
del Dolor, aproximadamente 50
millones de personas padecen de
dolores persistentes.
El estudio también descubrió
que los hispanos fueron
significativamente
menos
propensos a haber solicitado la
ayuda de un médico para el alivio
del dolor, que los caucásicos o los
afroamericanos; y más propensos
que los otros dos grupos
poblacionales a dar tratamiento a
sus dolores sin la ayuda de un
profesional de la Medicina.
En general, los participantes de
la investigación que jamás habían
consultado a un profesional de los
cuidados de salud, fueron más
propensos a hablar español en casa
que quienes buscaron ayuda para
el alivio del dolor.
Asimismo, los hispanos fueron
considerablemente
menos
propensos a tener seguro médico
que los caucásicos o los
afroamericanos; y mostraron
mayor propensión que esos dos
grupos a afirmar que las
preocupaciones de índole
financiera les impidieron dar
tratamiento al dolor.
“Este estudio patentiza lo que la
mayoría de los latinos sabe desde
hace mucho tiempo: la carencia de
seguro médico y de una eficiente
educación para la salud,
conjuntamente con las barreras del
idioma; impiden el acceso a los
cuidados de salud, especialmente
en lo tocante al control del dolor”,
aseguró Venus Ginés, Directora
Ejecutiva y Fundadora de la
institución Día de la Mujer Latina,
Inc.
“Los resultados del estudio
destacan la necesidad de mayores
esfuerzos para mejorar el acceso
de la población hispana a la
atención médica”, agregó Carlos
Ugarte, MSPH, del Instituto para
la Salud Hispana, Consejo
Nacional de la Raza, y co-autor de
la investigación.
El estudio fue encargado por
Partners Against Pain, y
financiado a través de una
subvención sin restricciones de
Purdue Pharma Fund.
Partners Against Pain es una
alianza de pacientes, profesionales
y proveedores de cuidados de
salud, que trabajan en común para
aliviar el sufrimiento innecesario,
mejorando los tratamientos del
dolor mediante la educación y la
defensa.
Desde su fundación, el
programa ha prestado ayuda a
miles de personas para la
consecución de una vida
saludable.
La diabetes afecta a los
hispanos mayores
La diabetes es una enfermedad en la que el cuerpo no produce
insulina o no la emplea correctamente. La insulina es la hormona
necesaria para convertir el azúcar, el almidón y otros alimentos en la
energía que necesitamos para la vida cotidiana. La causa de la diabetes
continúa siendo un misterio, aunque se cree que ciertos factores
genéticos y ambientales, como la obesidad y la falta de ejercicio, pueden
tener un papel importante.
Según la American Diabetes Association (Asociación
Estadounidense para la Diabetes), los hispanos estadounidenses tienen
1,5 veces más probabilidades de sufrir diabetes que las personas blancas
de edad similar. La diabetes es
particularmente frecuente entre los
hispanos estadounidenses de edad
media
y
mayores.
Aproximadamente entre el 25 y el
30 por ciento de las personas de 50
años de edad o mayores fueron
diagnosticadas con diabetes o no
han sido diagnosticadas.
”Los hispanos estadounidenses
padecen diabetes tipo 2 en forma
desproporcionada”, afirmó la Dra.
Soraly Servera de Novo Nordisk
(una empresa de atención médica
internacional con presencia en 78
países).
“Por lo tanto, es
fundamental que reconozcan la
importancia de realizarse una
prueba para la detección de
diabetes, y que entender la
enfermedad es el primer paso para
la prevención”.
Es fundamental educar a los
hispanos estadounidenses sobre de
qué manera un diagnóstico precoz,
conjuntamente con un plan de
tratamiento individualizado, puede
ayudar a prevenir complicaciones
a largo plazo asociadas con la
diabetes. Se recomienda al público,
y principalmente a los adultos
mayores de 50 años de edad,a
someterse a una simple prueba de
glucemia para determinar si
padecen la enfermedad.

Chase Bank U.S.A., a division
of JPMorgan Chase & Co.
announced the Colorado rollout of
its new Chase “contactless” credit
card called “blink.” Beginning
early June, Chase will start
delivering the new cards with blink
to more than 500,000 Colorado
card members, increasing the
speed and convenience of credit
card use at an initial base of more
than 400 merchant locations in 63
cities across Colorado, including
Arby’s, 7-Eleven, Regal Cinema’s
and Walgreen’s. Colorado will be
the first state west of the
Mississippi to receive the new
blink technology.
To use Chase cards with blink,
card members simply hold their
card near a point-of-sale terminal
at checkout, instead of swiping
their card or handing it to a store
employee. As card members hold
their Chase card with blink near
the point-of-sale terminal, the
terminal will quickly emit a tone
and light up to signal payment
confirmation.
“The new blink card is one of the
many expanded services being
offered to customers as Chase
expands its presence in Colorado,”
said Carter Franke, chief
marketing officer of Chase Card
Services, the company’s credit
card division. “This is a
community that savors every last
minute available to take advantage
of the active quality of life here,
so we’re confident they will take

SBA to hold size standards
public hearing in Denver
The U.S. Small Business
Administration is holding a public
hearing in Denver and 10 other
U.S. cities to gather input from
small business owners on how to
improve the agency’s size
standards regulations, which are
used to define the size of small
businesses.
The hearings will allow small
business owners to provide
valuable input to help the SBA
simplify and restructure its size
standards and make other changes
that will make the size standards
easier to understand and use.
The SBA also will be seeking
testimony on the participation of
research and development
companies that are majorityowned by venture capital
companies in the SBA’s Small
Business Innovation Research
program.
Size standards are important to
businesses that seek assistance
from SBA’s small business
programs, including federal
contracting. The SBA would like
to hear directly from the public
before
deciding
which
improvements to pursue. The SBA
will consider a new size standards
proposal once a thorough review
of comments received from the
public is completed.
The SBA is currently evaluating
more than 6,000 comments that
were submitted in response to the
advance notice.
When: June 14, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30
p.m.

Working in conjunction with Visa
U.S.A.
and
MasterCard
International, Chase has identified
stores where speed and
convenience are important to
consumers, and is introducing the
new cards with a at 7-Eleven,
Arby’s and Walgreen’s. Regal
Cinema’s has also announced they
will accept contactless payments
at their locations beginning in July.
The number of merchants
accepting the Chase card is
expected to grow steadily
throughout the year. The new cards
also feature the traditional
magnetic stripe and can be used
anywhere Visa and MasterCard are
accepted.

Drowning is a leading cause of death for children
Drownings are the second
leading cause of unintentional
injury-related deaths involving
Colorado children ages 14 and
under, with only motor vehicle
crashes causing more fatalities.
From 1998 through 2002, 57
Colorado children ages 14 and
under died as a result of
unintentional drowning.
Children ages 12 to 23 months
accounted for nearly 25 percent of
these deaths and had the highest
rate of drowning.
Every year in the US, about 300
toddlers drown in residential
swimming pools; overall, more
than 800 children ages 14 and
under die from drowning, and
more than 4,000 go to the
emergency room after neardrowning incidents.
“Already, we’ve read about
drownings involving children this
year in Colorado. With warm
weather here, people are beginning
to engage in outdoor activities
involving water, such as
swimming, fishing and boating.
Anytime you are near water, there
are precautions that should be
taken to prevent drowning,
especially when children are
involved,” said Barbara Bailey, an
injury prevention specialist with
the Colorado SAFE KIDS
Coalition which is based at the
Colorado Department of Public
Health and Environment.
She warned that due to the high
runoff and all the rainfall Colorado
has experienced recently, there is
an even higher risk of drowning
due to high water levels and fastmoving water in the state’s streams
and lakes.

Bailey reminded people that
although most drownings occur in
larger open water sites and
swimming pools, children can
drown in smaller collections of
water or fluid as well, such as in
bathtubs, fountains and even
buckets, so constant supervision is
key.
“When children are present, the
most important precaution against
drowning is active supervision.
Simply being near your child is not
necessarily supervising,” said
Bailey. “Although 94 percent of
parents say they supervise their
children while swimming, many
acknowledge that they engage in
other distracting activities at the
same time — for example, talking,
eating, reading or taking care of
another child.
“If you leave a child unattended
near water or with access to a
swimming pool, you might come
back in two minutes and find the
child unconscious. If a child is
missing, always check the
swimming pool first — there’s no
time to spare.”
Bailey said that even a neardrowning incident can have
lifelong consequences. Children
who survive a near-drowning may
have brain damage. After four to
six minutes under water, the
damage is usually irreversible, she
said.

Bailey recommended the
following drowning prevention
tips:
• Supervise any child near water.
A supervised child is in sight and
in reach at all times with a parent’s
or caregiver’s undivided attention
focused on the child.
• If you have a swimming pool,
install five-foot fencing on all
sides with self-closing and selflatching gates. Studies estimate
that this type of isolation fencing
could prevent 50 to 90 percent of
childhood drownings in residential
swimming pools. Do not leave
toys in the swimming pool or
beside it. For extra protection,
consider a swimming pool alarm;
a gate alarm on the fence; alarms
on doors and windows in your
home; and an automatic
swimming pool cover.
• Keep rescue equipment, a
telephone and emergency
telephone numbers by the
swimming pool.
• Enroll children in swimming
lessons taught by a certified
instructor, but don’t assume
swimming lessons make a child
drownproof. There is no substitute
for active supervision.
Learn infant and child CPR. In
less than three hours, effective
interventions can be learned that
can give a fighting chance to a
child whose breathing and
heartbeat have stopped. Contact
a local hospital, fire department or
recreation department for more
information.

drowning and water safety, the

Desde Miami: Carta de Javier Duran
Querido primo:
Rogelio Martínez avanza sin
descanso, desde el lanzamiento de
su segundo disco, repite viajes a
Miami.
Ahora ha estado
presentando su nueva producción
“Tu delirio”, mientras prosigue
con la gira “Nueva generación”,
junto a Joan Sebastian, Pablo
Montero, Kumbia Kings, Alicia
Villarreal y Sissi. Y aprovechando
cada alto en el camino para volar
a California y besar a su hijita.
No se pueden imaginar la cantidad
de veces que mira su celular, en
cuya pantalla aparece la foto de la
baby Dairi Linnette.
Rogelio tenía 6 años cuando sus
padres lo trajeron desde Sinaloa y
comenzó a recorrer los campos en
los que trabajaba su padre. El
simpático astro, que recientemente
aparecía en la telenovela “Angel
rebelde” (cantaba también el tema
musical) y ha logrado, al pie de la
letra, “el sueño americano”.
“Siempre pensé que éste era mi
camino. Cantar, era lo que tenía
que hacer. En el año 90, cuando
grabé mi primer disco… y hasta
ahora. En el dos mil, creo que
logré mi primer éxito “Y sigues
siendo tú”… Todo esto ha sido mi
sueno y gracias a mi público he
logrado hacerlo realidad. Soy
afortunado en que el éxito me haya
llegado al preciso momento en que
llegó y que mis fans me han
apoyado hasta morir”.
Antes había participado en la
telenovela “Clase 406” y en varias

complaciente, riguroso, exigente,

verdad, yo siempre he visto como

soy.
- ¿Qué es lo más bello de la vida
para tí?
- La familia. Mi mamá, mi papá,

familia a morir.

Nina Sparano becomes KRDO’s co-anchor
KRDO TV announces the
promotion of Nina Sparano regular
weeknight co-anchor. Sparano has
been assigned weekend anchor
and weeknight reporting duties at
the local ABC station for the past
two years. Before joining the
News 13 staff Sparano was a
morning news anchor in Missoula,
Montana.
Station news director Dave
Rose noted, “Nina has been on the
anchor desk with Jon Karroll for
the past seven weeks. During that
time, we have reviewed a hundred
or more applications and
interviewed several very good
candidates. But we also knew that
Nina and Jon were doing a great
job together and offer viewers a
solid combination of credibility
and enthusiasm.”
The station is looking both
internally and externally for a new
co-anchor to join Joe Dominguez
on the News 13 Weekend. Rose
said, “in the near term Nina will
continue to work with Joe
Dominguez on the Sunday night
newscasts.”
Sparano is also a member of the
Hacer board, the McDonald’s
program that awards scholarships
to Hispanic students.
Music Fest XII offers camps, mariachi

Community and diversity are the

This year’s Music
Fest will increase its
focus on community
involvement
and
diversity by celebrating Pueblo
and Southern Colorado’s multicultural heritage with
performances in various
neighborhoods.
To highlight the widely
varied, cross-cultural talent
of the area, Music Fest will
host a series of workshops

Bigger, bolder, more
powerful 2005 Nissan
Frontier
The 2005 Nissan Frontier King
Cab pickup, which went on sale at
Nissan dealers nationwide in late
2004, moved Nissan squarely into
the midsize pickup market with the
most powerful V6 available in any
pickup.
The Frontier includes a number
of features shared with the Nissan
Titan, including its rugged
suspension design, innovative
factory-applied spray-on bedliner,
Utili-track bed channel tie-down
system and fully boxed, all-steel
frame based on the Titan’s FAlpha platform.
“The award-winning Titan sets
the standard for innovation in
pickup design, regardless of size.
Titan, in turn, set the tone for
the creation of the 2005 Frontier,”
said Mark McNabb, vice president
and general manager, Nissan
Division. “With the debut of the
all-new 2005 Frontier, we’re
solidifying Nissan’s truck
presence in both the full-size and
mid-size truck segments –
essentially giving buyers the same
tough truck in large and extra
large.”
The 2005 Frontier is offered in
both King Cab and Crew Cab body
styles and in 2WD and 4WD
driveline configurations. The new
Frontier, like the previous
generations, will be assembled at
Nissan’s manufacturing facility in
Smyrna, Tennessee.
While the key word in
conceiving the 2005 Frontier was
“more” – as in more power, more
size, more off-road capability,
more towing and cargo hauling
capacity, more comfort and utility
– the key to bringing concept to
reality was the adoption of Titan’s
F-Alpha platform.

Starting with strong, fully boxed frame rails, the
platform provides a rugged foundation on which to
build.
The 2005 Frontier’s wheelbase is 9.8 inches
longer than the previous generation’s, which helps
enhance ride comfort and stability.
The overall length of 205.5 inches is larger than
the 2004 model (+2.6 inches King Cab, + 5.6 inches
Crew Cab), though it remains a perfect “activity
size” for buyers who don’t need a true full-size
pickup. Width and height measurements are also
increased with the new design.
The 2005 Frontier shares its suspension layout
and many component designs based on the Titan,
including an all-steel double-wishbone front
suspension and solid axle leaf rear suspension with
overslung leaf springs and a long suspension stroke
for optimized off-road dynamics.
The Frontier, like Titan, provides exceptional
acceleration, towing capacity and all-around offroading ability, due in large measure to its powerful
engine – a 4.0-liter DOHC V6 producing 265
horsepower and 284 lb-ft of torque.
The engine is based on the award-winning Nissan
VQ engine series used in the 350Z, Maxima, Altima,
Murano and Quest, but is specifically tuned for the
unique demands of truck use. At the same time, it
offers excellent fuel efficiency and smooth
operation.
A 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine is also
available on the base Frontier King Cab 2WD
model.
The Frontier is offered with a choice of
transmissions – an advanced 5-speed automatic, a
6-speed manual transmission or 5-speed manual
(King Cab I4 model).

President Bush Fuels Up
Hydrogen3
President George W. Bush last
week gave a big boost to the idea
of a hydrogen economy, touring a
Shell service station in Washington
DC and walking through an
exhibit on the value of hydrogen
power. Afterwards, he looked at
how the pumps operate and fueled
up the GM HydroGen3 minivan.
“Hydrogen is the wave of the
future and this country is going to
have to use technology to diversify
away from hydrocarbons,” Bush
said.
GM is developing a 40-vehicle
fuel cell fleet along with the US
Department of Energy and Shell
is providing the infrastructure to
support the use of those vehicles
along the East Coast between
Washington and New York.

Guidelines help parents decide the best food
Guidelines to help parents
determine what’s best to feed their
infants and toddlers are being
developed by Agricultural
Research Service (ARS) scientists
and cooperators.
The new guidelines, developed
by the Children’s Nutrition
Research Center (CNRC) in
Houston, Texas, the American
Dietetic Association and Gerber
Foods Products company, fill an
information gap. That’s because
much of the available nutrition
information has been intended
mainly for children ages 2 years
and up, or for infants under 6
months. The new guidelines are
meant for toddlers between those
ages.
Called the “Start Healthy
Feeding Guidelines,” the
recommendations complement
and expand—not replace—earlyfeeding recommendations from
the American Academy of
Pediatrics, the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, and other
expert groups. The guidelines
provide practical and useful
recommendations based on
scientifically sound evidence.
Taking the lead for CNRC are
Nancy Butte and William Heird,
both professors of pediatrics at
Baylor College of Medicine and
the CNRC. The two were part of
the panel of leading pediatric
experts who developed the new
Guías ayudan a determinar la mejor
alimentación
Las guías nuevas, desarrolladas
por el Centro de Investigación de
la Nutrición de Niños (CNRC por
sus siglas en inglés) en Houston,
Texas, la Asociación Dietética
Americana y la compañía Gerber
Foods Products, proveen
información que no es actualmente
disponible. Eso es porque mucha
de la información disponible
acerca
de
nutrición
es
principalmente
para
la
alimentación de los niños de 2
años y más, o para infantes menos
de 6 meses. Las guías nuevas van
dirigidas a la alimentación de los
niños entre esas edades.
Llamada “Guías de Comenzar
Alimentación Saludable”, las
recomendaciones complementan y
amplían - no reemplazan - las
recomendaciones de alimentación
temprana de la Academia
Americana de Pediatría, los
Centros para el Control y la
Prevención de Enfermedades, y
otros grupos expertos. Las guías
proveen
recomendaciones
prácticas y útiles basadas en
evidencias científicas.
Los lideres de las
investigaciones en CNRC son

cuales son profesores de pediatría
en la Universidad Baylor de

USDA’s MyPyramid
receives 500 million hits
que desarrollaron las guías nuevas,
las cuales fueron provocadas en
parte por el problema creciente de
la obesidad de niñez. Los
proveedores del cuidado de la
salud necesitan una base mejor
para hacer recomendaciones sobre
alimentación para los bebés y los
niños pequeños, y necesitan
métodos mejores para comunicar
la importancia de establecer
costumbres sanas de alimentación
temprana en la niñez.
Las guías en Internet en
www.gerber.com/starthealthy
proveen información por el panel
experto, incluyendo un folleto
detallado con recomendaciones e
información sobre la alimentación
de niños jóvenes. Los temas de
las guías incluyen información
para manejar las alergias y
sensibilidades alimentarías, cómo
alimentar a infantes y desarrollar
habilidades de alimentarse por sí
mismo, y la importancia de la
actividad física.

in part by the growing problem of

REAL ESTATE
El Sueño Americano
¿Por qué es que al tener casa
propia se le llama “el Sueño
Americano”? De todas las cosas
que hacen que este país sea un
lugar donde los sueños se pueden
hacer realidad, ¿por qué es que ser
propietario de casa ocupa el primer
lugar en nuestra lista de deseos?
Tal vez sea porque el tener casa
propia ha sido, desde siempre, la
mejor oportunidad que la mayoría
de las familias tienen para
acumular riqueza.
Hay mucha gente que trabaja
duro, viviendo de un sueldo al otro
y ganando apenas lo necesario
para cubrir sus necesidades y tal
vez les sobre un poco para unas
vacaciones ocasionales. Las
familias que siempre han pagado
alquiler, ¿pueden tener la
esperanza de compartir este
sueño? Absolutamente.
Junio es el Mes Nacional de la
Vivienda Propia, un tiempo ideal
para que la gente que sueña con
tener casa propia tome pasos
concretos para hacer realidad ese
sueño. Por tanto, para las personas
como usted que esperan poder
decirle adiós a su arrendador, a
continuación les damos unos
consejos básicos para comprar su
primera casa.
Primero, verifique su crédito.
Desde el momento en que usted
solicita un préstamo hipotecario,
su historial de crédito pasa a ser
un libro abierto. Es una buena idea
examinar su puntaje de crédito
antes que lo haga su banquero o
agente. Si hay algún error o
mancha en su expediente, usted
tiene la oportunidad de corregirla
de modo que cuando llegue la hora
de solicitar financiamiento, tenga
una base financiera firme. Las tres
agencias de crédito principales
son: Equifax, www.equifax.com,
888-202-4025;
Experian,
www.experian.com, 888-3973742;
y
TransUnion,
www.transunion.com, 800-9168800. Comience llamándolas,
obteniendo una copia de su
informe
de
crédito
y
examinándolo cuidadosamente.
Segundo, reúna todos los
documentos que su prestador o
agente hipotecario le solicite. Un
buen comienzo son los
comprobantes de sueldos,
declaraciones de impuestos,
historial de empleo y un resumen
de sus gastos mensuales.
Tercero, determine el precio que
puede pagar por una casa, teniendo
en cuenta su ingreso y los gastos
mensuales. Si tiene buen crédito,
la regla general es que usted puede
pagar una casa que cueste
alrededor de dos veces y media su
ingreso anual. Por ejemplo, si su
ingreso familiar es de $50.000 al
año, usted podría ver casas que se
Sea dueño de su futuro:
Junio es el mes de la vivienda
Cada Junio, nuestra nación celebra el Mes Nacional de la Vivienda. Propietarios de vivienda
construyen prosperidad, y familias más saludables y comunidades más fuertes. Es por eso que el ser
dueño de su hogar él es Sueño Americano. Usted y su familia están invitados a unirse a nosotros
para celebrar el Mes Nacional de la Vivienda. HUD puede ayudarle a encontrar el camino a su
vivienda! Para aprender como, visíteles en el http://www.hud.gov/colorado o en español

El a-b-c de los costos de cierre
Seamos francos, la compra de
una casa es una de las grandes
alegrías del mundo, pero el trámite
que hay que seguir para ello puede
crear sentimientos de frustración
y temor. Hoy examinaremos
aspectos de la hipoteca y la lista
de costos de cierre que se espera
que usted tendrá que pagar antes
de pasar a la lista de los
propietarios de vivienda.
Los cargos por originar el
préstamo, por el seguro del título,
la preparación de documentos, y
muchos más, pueden sumar miles
de dólares al costo de comprar su
primera casa. Poco después de
haber llenado la solicitud del
préstamo, le van a entregar un
“Estimado de Buena Fe”, o GFE,
por sus siglas del inglés. Como
su nombre lo sugiere, este
documento muestra los estimados
de los diversos cargos que le
podrán cargar el día del cierre.
Recuerde, el estimado de buena fe
no es más que un estimado de los
costos de cierre. Estos costos
podrían
aumentar
considerablemente para la fecha
del cierre.
Para el comprador promedio,
los costos de cierre pueden agregar
hasta el tres por ciento (3%), o casi
$5.000, al precio de compra de una
vivienda. Esta cifra ni siquiera
incluye los “pagos previos”
efectuados por adelantado para
crear una cuenta de custodia de
modo que su prestador pueda
pagar sus impuestos sobre la
propiedad y las primas del seguro
de propietario. Para las personas
que están comprando su primera
casa y que están esforzándose por
ahorrar lo suficiente para dar un
pago inicial, unos pocos miles de
dólares adicionales pueden hacer
que tengan que posponer su sueño.
No obstante, ¡Que no cunda el
pánico!
Si usted cumple con los
requisitos para obtener un
préstamo hipotecario, pero no
tiene el dinero para los costos de
cierre, su prestador puede ofrecerle
que simplemente los agregue a la
cantidad de su préstamo. Si no le
gusta esa opción, el prestador
puede ofrecerle pagar algunos o
todos esos costos a cambio de que
usted le pague una tasa de interés
ligeramente más alta. A esta
solución con frecuencia se le llama
“prima
del
margen
de
rendimiento” (“yield spread
premium”) y puede ser una manera
práctica de que las personas con
poco dinero hagan realidad su
sueño de hacerse propietarias.
Pero recuerde esta regla general –
mientras más bajos sean los costos
de cierre, la tasa de interés, será
más alta.
El pago de esta prima tendrá el
efecto de aumentar sus gastos
hipotecarios mensuales, pero
muchos compradores de vivienda
escogen esta opción en lugar de
pagar los costos de cierre de una
vez. Una ventaja adicional es que
los pagos mensuales de intereses
hipotecarios son deducibles de
impuestos.
Poco después de solicitar un
préstamo hipotecario, usted deberá
recibir un pequeño folleto
informativo sobre los costos de
cierre, llamado “La compra de su
casa, costos de cierre e
información útil” “Buying your
Home: Settlement Costs and
Helpful Information.” Esta es una
publicación excelente para
ayudarle a completar esta
complicada transacción.
También puede encontrar esta
guía y otra información importante
para el consumidor en http://
www.hud.gov/colorado
y
español.hud.gov
estén vendiendo en $125.000.
Por último, no tema hacer
preguntas a los profesionales. La
compra de su primera casa es muy
emocionante, pero la idea de
contraer la deuda más grande de
toda su vida puede intimidar al
más valiente. Consulte a los
expertos. HUD tiene una lista de
asesores aprobados en asuntos de
vivienda que pueden guiarle paso
a paso por este proceso. Usted

cercano visitando el sitio http://

Burger tips for BBQ success
(NUE) - Summer and fall - and
the long weekends in-between are ideal times to fire up the grill
and bring the family together for
some outdoor fun.
Burgers, the quintessential
barbecue fare, are among
America’s all-time favorite foods.
For variety, top them with
unconventional fixings, such as
avocado slices, arugula, salsa and
fresh basil.
For the best taste and optimum
freshness,
connoisseurs
recommend organic ground beef.
“USDA-certified organic
ground beef is made from animals
that have not been injected with
synthetic hormones or antibiotics,
and that eat food free of animal
byproducts and grown without
pesticides,” said Michael Levine,
president of Organic Prairie
Family of Farms, one of the
nation’s leading cooperatives of
organic farmers and providers of
organic meat.
Here are some burger-making
tips from Organic Prairie.
• For best flavor, use 85 percent
lean ground beef. If you choose
leaner meat, add a splash of tomato
juice or Worcestershire sauce to
increase flavor and moisture.
• Finely mince any garlic, onions
or other vegetables that will be
mixed into the meat. Larger
chunks will make the burger fall
apart on the grill.
• Wet clean hands before making
the patties. The patties should be
formed loosely, not packed or
pressed, and should be about onehalf-inch thick and slightly wider
than the bun.
Try this Mediterranean-inspired
burger recipe at your next family
barbecue.
Greek Gourmet Burger
(Makes 6 servings)
1 1/2 pounds Organic Prairie
ground beef (thawed)
1 1/2 medium green onion
(chopped)
1 cup fresh spinach (chopped)
1/4 cup tomato (chopped)
1/4 cup organic feta cheese
1/4 teaspoon dried dill
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt (to taste)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
(ground)
In a large glass bowl, mix all
ingredients. Cover and chill for 1
hour to allow flavors to mingle.
Form into 6 patties. Cook over
medium-high heat for 6 minutes
on each side for medium doneness.
Serve over seasonal greens.

legalización” de millones de
trabajadores indocumentados en el
país. Para lograr esa meta es
necesario que se amplíe la
coalición que apoya una reforma
migratoria que incluya no sólo a
México sino a otros países como
El Salvador, que tiene un gran
número de inmigrantes en Estados
Unidos, subrayó Villaraigosa, ex
presidente de la Asamblea estatal.
Villaraigosa participó la tarde
del miércoles en la conferencia del
grupo Campaign for America’s
Future, que busca impulsar a las
fuerzas progresistas de Estados
Unidos frente a lo que considera
“el fracaso de la derecha”.
La ceremonia de inauguración
del nuevo local del Consejo de La
Raza contó con la presencia de
Raúl Yzaguirre; su sucesora, Janet
Murguía; la presidenta del diario
La Opinión, de Los Angeles,
Mónica Lozano, y líderes
comunitarios latinos de la ciudad
de Washington.
Janet Murguía expresó su
optimismo en el tema de
inmigración pese, a iniciativas de
endurecimiento migratorio como
la presentada por los senadores
republicanos Jon Kyl y John
Cornyn, que buscan incrementar el
número de agentes fronterizos y
los fondos destinados a la lucha
contra la inmigración ilegal.
“Hay iniciativas como la
presentada por McCain y Kennedy
que cuentan con el apoyo de
liderazgo hispano”, dijo Murguía
en referencia a la propuesta de
reforma migratoria del senador
republicano John McCain y su
colega demócrata Edward
Kennedy, que propone el camino
a la legalización de millones de
indocumentados.

On June 24, the Mariachi Fest
will include a one-day mariachi
clinic to students of all ages and
musical backgrounds. The
daylong clinic will be held at CSUPueblo. An evening performance
featuring clinicians and students
will be at the Sangre de Cristo Arts
and Conference Center. Last year’s
event drew a standing room only
crowd, so arrive early!
The featured clinicians and
performers will be Mariachi
Tenampa from Albuquerque and
Mariachi Acoiris. The 101st Army
Band will set a patriotic tone at the
popular July 4th Extravaganza
before an hour-long fireworks
show sponsored by the local
Sertoma Club, while the
University will coordinate food
and beverage vendors for
attendees.
More than 17,000 people
attended last year’s Independence
Day activities, and it remains the
only fireworks show in town on
this national holiday.
A free Children’s Concert by
Bonnie Phipps will begin in Hoag
Hall at 5 p.m. before the outdoor
concert at 7 p.m. Parking is $5 per
carload, which benefits Sertoma
charities. Complete details on
concerts and camps may be
obtained by visiting the Music Fest
