Morgan’s Wonderland unveils ‘Whirling Wonder’
By Christina Acosta
[email protected]
One of San Antonio’s most beloved parks will enable individuals with special needs to achieve
new heights.
Morgan’s Wonderland added
their fourth wheelchair-accessible
ride on Friday called the “Whirling Wonder,” a new attraction
just in time for spring break. The
new attraction, built in Italy, is
five and a half stories tall and has
12 gondolas.
Children have the privilege of
enjoying their time in the gondolas with three adults or four
friends on each gondola. The
“Whirling Wonder” will also
feature 1,860 lights so many can
see a light show at night along
the shoreline of the unique theme
park’s lake.
The idea to bring “Whirling
Wonder” to the park grounds began in November, as plans were
discussed in a meeting by word
of mouth.
“We have not been working on
this idea for very long. It came up

chairman of The Gordon Hartman

the idea to life quickly so that
many people can enjoy a unique
ride on spring break. We want the
community of children, whether
with special needs or not, to come
together and enjoy the Morgan’s
Wonderland experience with the
‘Whirling Wonder.”’
Since their opening in 2010,
Morgan’s Wonderland has welcomed more than a million guests
from all 50 states and 65 other
countries. Today, the park offers
wheelchair-accessibility with
more than 25 attractions, including rides, playgrounds, gardens,
an 8-acre catch and release fishing lake, a 575 seat amphitheater,
picnic area and rest zones.

Elderly couple is refunded

that will allow them to carry extra

For Rogelio and Rachel Chapa,
this was a refund that came unexpected. Bexar County Tax
Assessor-Collector, Albert Uresti,
presented a property tax refund
check totaling $4,000 earlier this
week to the Chapa couple who
have been married for 58 years.
These refunds are a result of
the efforts to reinstate Chapa’s
65 and over exemption plus the
residential homestead exemption
that had been mistakenly removed
from their account by the Bexar Albert Uresti (right) presents a $4,000 tax exemption check to Rogelio and Rachel Chapa on

confirming an address. The Chapa
family had paid their property
taxes for two years without exemption.
“I wasn’t that familiar with tax
information because my husband
took care of it. As we got older,
my daughter started taking care of
it. Then, she started telling us that
we needed to pay a certain amount
of taxes, and I did not know what
I could do. I told her if the taxes
needed to be paid, then to go ahead
and pay them,” explained Rachel.
The couple did not understand
where their hard earned money
was going until Uresti walked
up to the Chapa home one day in
January while campaigning in the
neighborhood and saw Rogelio
picking up his mail.
Uresti sensed that he needed to
help Rogelio and once he introduced himself, Uresti noticed that
his mail included an envelope from
the tax assessor’s office. Uresti
informed the couple that he would
have their account researched to
see why they did not have any
“Apparently, their mailing address was sent to their daughter
from what we had configured. So
we decided to change the address.
When they see an address change,
they will send a letter. Since they
did not respond, they assumed they
had moved and they forwarded the
exemption. But the new state law
requires them to send a certified
letter which can go in long ways,”
explained Uresti.
Uresti and his staff contacted the
appraisal district who worked with
the tax office to reinstate the lost
exemptions. Once the account was
corrected at the appraisal office,
Uresti began the process to have

Now that the Chapa’s taxes
have been reimbursed, the elderly
couple plans to spend their funds
on bills, something that the elderly
couple obviously does not leave
behind. Mrs. Chapa would also
like to inform others to keep an
eye on their taxes and mail.
“Be more careful and take care
of your own,” advised Mrs. Chapa.
Uresti added that he hopes those
learning about the story, check to
see if they have tax exemptions of
their own.
“They can call our office to
check or go to appraisal district,”
said Uresti. “If they call our office,
we will check for them.”

expressed Hartman.
Now that the “Whirling Wonder” is open, Morgan’s Wonderland plans to bring in acrobatic
dogs, puppet shows and several activities throughout spring
break. As for the future, Hartman
expressed that the possibilities
are endless with the help of the
community that constantly visits
and supports the cause behind
Morgan’s Wonderland.
“There will be a lot of things to
enjoy here at Morgan’s Wonderland,” informed Hartman. “Every
year, we continue to grow. We
are getting ready for ‘Morgan’s
Inspiration Island’ that is coming
in 2017. I would like to express
my gratitude to the community
for getting us to the place where
we want to be.”
Construction charity organization AGC Charities, Inc. is
partnering with local construction
firms to help build “Morgan’s Inspiration Island,” a new handicapaccessible water park addition to
Morgan’s Wonderland. As part
of the charitable organization’s
annual Operation Opening Doors
effort, many construction firms
will be donating time, expertise
and money to build the water park
in San Antonio.
“We want to help build a special place where every child is
free to splash around and have
fun,” said Scott Williams, president of Springfield, Ore.-based
Hamilton Construction Company
and the chairman of AGC Charities. “It isn’t every day we get
to use our skills to build a world
of limitless fun for all children,
which is what makes this project

so important.”
Morgan’s Wonderland is the
world’s first theme park designed
with special-needs individuals
in mind and built for everyone’s
enjoyment. The new expansion
to Morgan’s Wonderland, “Morgan’s Inspiration Island,” will
serve as the world’s first-ever
fully-accessible water park when
it opens in spring next year. The
park addition will include five
new water play areas and a riverboat ride.
Keep in mind that Morgan’s
Wonderland will be open daily
for spring break, from March 1120, so now is the time for kids to
come out and enjoy what the park
has to offer. For more information, hours of operation, admission and special events, please

Miami será,
por unos días, el ombligo de Estados Unidos. Y con razón. Aquí
en la Florida podría definirse, de
una vez por todas, quienes serán
los nominados de ambos partidos
a la presidencia del país.
Desde el 2000, Miami ha cambiado mucho. Esta es una ciudad
cada vez más diversa y tolerante.
O sea, Miami es el futuro. Los
latinos pasamos de ser el 17 Por
ciento de la población en 1960
a más del 70 por ciento ahora,
según las cifras del último censo.
No es extraño ver tiendas con letreros que dicen: “English Spoken
Miami, junto con Los Ángeles
y Nueva York, está al frente de
la revolución demográfica que
transforma a Estados Unidos. En
el 2055 los blancos (no hispanos)
se convertirán en una minoría en
este país. Bueno, en Miami hace
mucho que lo son. Nos hemos
adelantado unas décadas a la
Esto, sin duda, tiene sus ventajas. Miami es la única ciudad
del país donde los hispanos son
tratados como ciudadanos de
primera clase, me decía mi buen
amigo, Joaquín Blaya, visionario
ejecutivo de la televisión. Tiene
razón. Aquí no tenemos que probarle a nadie lo que valemos, las
principales estaciones de radio
y televisión son en español, y
nuestros votos cuentan.
Ya nos estamos acostumbrando
a definir elecciones. George
W. Bush me dijo en una vieja
entrevis­ta que los 537 votos
con los que ganó la Florida (y
la Casa Blanca) en el 2000 más
una pequeña ayuda de la Corte
Suprema de Justicia vinieron
posiblemente de votantes cubanoamericanos. En este 2016 existe
la misma angustia y ansiedad que
a principios de siglo; muchos
tenemos la convicción de que el
futuro de Estados Unidos está
en juego. Hoy la pregunta es:
¿Trump o no Trump?
Si Estados Unidos fuera como
Miami, el candidato republicano
Donald Trump jamás podría ganar una elección, ni siquiera como
alcalde o miembro del concejo
municipal. Ocho de cada 10 hispanos a nivel nacional tienen una
imagen negativa de él, según la
última encuesta de Univisión y el
Washington Post. Y sin el apoyo
de los hispanos, no se pueden
ganar elecciones en Miami.
Miami no es una ciudad que
apoye muros ni deportaciones
masivas. Esta es una ciudad de
inclusión integra, no separa.
Aquí venimos de todos lados y lo
normal es ser inmigrante. La comunidad cubanoamericana, gene­
rosamente, ha ido recibiendo a
centroamericanos, colombianos,
venezolanos y a cualquiera que
huya de la violencia o represión
en su país de origen. Alguien,
siempre, te ayuda al llegar.
Miami, como todo ser vivien­
te, crece para los lados, la zona
metropolitana tiene más de 5 mi­
llones de habitantes y para arriba.
Antes solo teníamos un montón
de edificios, me describió alguna
vez el constructor y empresario
Jorge Pérez. Ahora todo tiene
un sentido, hay un plan: centros
comerciales, oficinas, cultura.
Por fin ya no estamos hablando
sobre una gran ciudad sino que
estamos haciendo una gran ciudad (incluyen­do un museo de arte
moderno que lleva su nombre).
Pero, hay una tormenta en el
horizonte. El verdiazul mar que
nos rodea podría ahogarnos. Las
playas a las que solía ir tienen
cada vez menos arena. Las inundaciones son frecuentes cerca de
los restaurantes de Miami Beach
y espero con horror la próxima
temporada de huracanes. El hermoso canal que hay cerca de casa
podría terminar en mi sala. Si
no logramos contener el cambio
climático, mis hijos y sus hijos
tendrán que lidiar con un Miami...
bajo el agua.
Pero, para fortuna de nuestros
visitantes, eso no pasará en los
próximos días. Aquí hace semanas que llegó la primavera. Van
a sudar, bailar salsa y tomar café
cubano (que los dejará despiertos
por días). Dejen sus abrigos en
casa, pónganse sus lentes de sol
y abran bien los ojos para ver lo
que logra una ciudad que extiende
sus brazos a los extranjeros y,
luego, los hace parte integral de la
comunidad. Nuestra comunidad.
Miami es el lugar donde
muchos de nosotros construimos
nuestra segunda casa y donde obtuvimos esa segunda oportunidad
que tanto necesitábamos. Es, en
otras palabras, un lugar donde se
lucha y donde uno se puede reinventar. Y eso lo saben también
los candidatos. Por eso estamos
todos aquí.

Just a Thought: Oscar Zaldivar
Last week,
I wrote that I
was accepted
in 1960 to attend Central
Catholic High
School. I also
Steve Walker mentioned that
I had just graduated from St. Gregory’s Catholic School in Balcones Heights
from eighth grade. Besides my
attending Central Catholic, many
of my classmates from St. Gregory’s would also be attending as
well. We looked forward to being
reunited once again and continue
our relationship throughout high
I was deeply saddened to
learn that was not meant to be. I
was uprooted two weeks before
school started, along with my parents and five younger brothers,
and moved to Massachusetts over
a thousand miles away to what I
considered to be a foreign land! I
did attend a catholic high school
for two years before moving two
more times before college.
Ironically, moving back to
San Antonio in 1972 after a stint
in Vietnam and college in Fort
Worth at Texas Wesleyan College (now Texas Wesleyan University), I was able to meet many
graduates who would have been
my classmates at Central Catholic
over the years had I stayed.
Besides former HUD Secretary
and San Antonio Mayor Henry
Cisneros, radio personality and
motivational speaker Sonny Melendrez and former Congressman
Charlie Gonzalez, there was my
longtime buddy, Oscar Zaldivar
who passed away two weeks ago,
a month shy of his 70th birthday.
I met Oscar when I joined the
San Antonio Chamber of Commerce aka San Antonio Jaycees
in the late 70s. For those who
might remember, the Jaycees
were a nonprofit organization of
young men who sponsored La Semana Allegre, the Annual Orphan
Shopping Tour and numerous of
other community projects to help
the community. Years later, they
changed the by-laws to accept
women as members and not just
Oscar and I, along with 600+
members at any given time,
participated in those events for
over seven years since there was
an age limit of 35 to be an active
member. We called it aging out.
That is why we were called Junior
Chamber which was created in
the 1920s.
Both Oscar and I served as
the president of the organization
back to back. He was the first
Hispanic in the organization to
be elected as president in 198081. I followed him as president
in 1981-82. As immediate past
president during my year as president, we hosted the National Jaycee Convention attracting 10,000
delegates from the 50 states.
As the outgoing president, he
was technically the host as we
had many various discussions as
to who was the official host of the
convention since it was approved
under his watch. President Ronald Reagan was the guest speaker
months after the John Hinckley
assassination attempt on his life.
San Antonio was abuzz during
that visit by the president of the
United States!
Over the years, Oscar and I
stayed in touch along with other
Jaycees. Some years ago, he lost
a leg due to a viral infection. During his last 10 years, he moved
around in a wheel chair. Still
smiling and upbeat, he accepted
his condition and moved on.
When I was still a justice of
the peace a few years ago, he
invited me to speak to his defensive driving class talking about
traffic tickets. Ironically after
I left the bench, I was issued a
speeding ticket and had to sign up
for defensive driving. Guess who
my defensive driving instructor
turned out to be? Oscar!
While in his class, I thought he
would be easy on me. Wrong! He
told me that when I was in court,
I was bound to follow the law
and since I was in his class, I had
to follow his protocol. I did and
passed the class as he hovered
over me to ensure I did what was
expected by the law.
Back in the day, we were also
roommates for a few months
which was really interesting. But
we survived it graciously. I won’t
divulge which one of us was the
messy one.
I was thankful I talked to Oscar
the day before he died. As previously stated, he was one month
shy of his 70th, April 2. He was
going to have a birthday party
at his house with family and a
few friends, and I was looking
forward to seeing him on his
At the rosary, I was able to say
a few words and pay homage to
my good friend Oscar Zaldivar.
I am sad I lost a longtime friend
who could have been my classmate back in 1960-64, had I not
moved. Adieu good friend.
Anyway, as always, what I
write is “Just a Thought.”

Repercusiones de Michigan
Por Humberto Caspa
Lo inesperado es el común
denominador en las actuales
elecciones primarias. Hillary
Rodham Clinton podía haber estampado la candidatura oficial de
su partido político en las primarias de Michigan; sin embargo, el
electorado de este estado se paró,
cuestionó el tenor de su campaña
y le dijo: no tan rápido; falta
mucho antes de cantar victoria.
Así es. La victoria de Bernie Sanders en Michigan hace
notar algunos problemas que
no contemplaron en campaña
política de Hillary Clinton. Recientemente se percataron que
la clase trabajadora en los sectores industriales sindicalizados
del país –la mayoría de etnia
euro-estadounidense— no está
de acuerdo con los tratados de
libre comercio.
De acuerdo a lo manifestado en
el debate de Michigan por la ex
Secretaria de Estado, los tratados
internacionales de comercio son
esencialmente buenos para la
economía nacional, pero hay que
saber controlarlos. Recordemos
que en la presidencia de su esposo
promovió la firma del Tratado de
Libre Comercio de América del
Norte. Además impulsó lo que
hoy se conoce como el Acuerdo
Transpacífico de Cooperación
Económica cuando trabajaba
como Secretaria de Estado en el
gobierno de Obama.
Los grupos sindicales, particularmente del sector manufacturero de automóviles, y los
trabajadores de la gran industria,
piensan totalmente diferente.
Para esta gente, estos tratados
sirven para dispersar (outsource)
trabajos a otros países. Los empresarios abusan de la flexibilidad
de los acuerdos internacionales y
se llevan sus plantas industriales
–hay veces todo— a países donde
los salarios son extremadamente
En torno a esta problemática,
Tanisha Motron, una de las personas que preguntó en el debate
de Michigan, se dirigió a Hillary
Clinton con la siguiente pregunta:
“Si usted fuera elegida presidente
¿qué es lo que va a hacer en el
gobierno para que las empresas
no se vayan al extranjero?”.
Hillary Clinton respondió con
una política de incentivos y de
coerción (carrots and sticks) a
través del cual el gobierno propondría a las empresas un plan
de estímulos económicos que les
permitiera mantener sus plantas
productivas en el país. Y si las
empresas gigantes, como la abastecedora de repuestos de autos
Johnson Controls Inc. insisten
en buscar asentarse en Europa
o en otros continentes, el plan
de Hilla­ry Clinton pretende sancionar con multas por abandonar
tierras norteamericanas.
Al parecer la respuesta no
satisfizo a una gran parte de los
votantes de Michigan. Por eso, el
día de las elecciones primarias,
muchos apoyaron la propuesta
de Sanders, quién se mostró totalmente en contra de cualquier
tipo de tratado de libre comercio.
A pesar de ser criticado, el plan
de Hillary Clinton es coherente
y está muy bien balanceado. Por
un lado, protege los puestos de
trabajo de los estadounidenses
y elabora un plan de sanciones
para los empresarios, por el
otro. Empero, en un periodo de
radicalización y de nacionalismo
extremo, cualquier propuesta
moderada es un pecado mortal
para cualquier candidato.
Este forma de pensamiento
pue­de tener repercusiones negativas en las primarias del próximo
15 de marzo, fecha en que el
electorado de Missouri, Illinois
y Ohio, estará decidiendo la
dirigencia de su partido político.
Existe una vasta población de
trabajadores industriales en estos
En consecuencia, Hillary Clinton tiene que cambiar su estrategia política si no quiere tener otra
sorpresa amarga. No es necesario
que se oponga totalmente a los
tratados de libre comercio, sino
que haga más énfasis en los
castigos que se le impondría a
las empresas que pretenden abandonar el mercado estadounidense
en busca de salarios bajos.

JULIE SPEED: UNDERTOAD— Ruiz-Healy Art is pleased to
present Julie Speed: Undertoad, an exhibition of paintings, prints and
collages spanning two cities. Utilizing her keen sense of the absurd,
Speed ponders the big questions—the role of religion, isolation and
longing—with a sly, sometimes dark sense of humor and a steadfast
refusal to offer the viewer any tidy resolutions. It is the emphatically
open-ended and omnivorous nature of her work that puts Speed in
the vanguard of a return to figurative painting in contemporary art.
The exhibition will be on display until Saturday, March 19 at RuizHealy Art, 201-A E. Olmos Dr.

La salud en la mujer es lo más importante en el mundo
Por José I. Franco
[email protected]
¿A quién no le va a importar
que la mujer siempre esté en
óptima condición de salud?.
Todos dependemos de la inmensa ayuda que la mujer aporta
en el seno del hogar, en el sector privado, los deportes, la
educación, sector gobierno, la
industria gastronómica y turística, ciencia médica, religión y
agencias de seguridad pública.
En este testimonio haré paten­
te un bien merecido reconocimiento a mujeres sobresalientes en sus respectivas carreras o
posiciones de elección popular.
Indicaré con todo respeto
sobre las responsabilidades de
algunas de ellas, como ejemplo
a seguir en sus respectivos quehaceres y obligaciones.
Imaginemos un mundo con
escasez de mujeres. No creo
que pudiéramos salir adelante
como habitualmente lo hacemos.
Recien­temente, surfeando por

mi lugar de nacimiento, una
ranchería en el estado de Durango (México), la mujer supera
la natalidad. Ahí existen dos
mujeres por un hombre.
Recuerdo que en mitad de la
década de los 70’s por decreto
presidencial se había instaurado
programa del control de la nata­

En una de mis primeras asignaciones (trabajando para el
Diario El Informador del Mayo),
durante la cobertura de una reunión con líderes comunitarios
(en la ciudad de Navojoa, estado
de Sonora), con el tema se trataba de concientizar a la mujer

En cuanto había comenzado
la sesión una dama de edad
avanzada tomó de repente el
micrófono para hacer una clara
protesta diciendo en alto tono:
“Si el gobierno quiere que
nuestras mujeres dejen de tener
muchos hijos, en caso de que se

serán los soldados que nos defiendan? Nosotras no estamos
para tomar las armas, nuestra
misión es darle soldados a la
Bueno a esa protesta nacieron
otras oposiciones y el gobierno
poco a poco tuvo que cambiar
de parecer y dejar todo en paz.
Recientemente en China se dio
luz verde para que los matrimonios puedan procrear dos hijos,
ya que existía una ley que los
obligaba a tener solo un hijo.
¿Qué fue lo que obligó a dicha
nación dar más libertades a sus
habitantes? ¿Será porque necesitan más soldados o para que los
padres de familia gasten más en
sus respectivos presupuestos de
alimentación y vestido? Para
no meterme en profundidades
al respecto, mejor aquí le paro

damas que por sus respectivas

reconocimiento y agradecimientos.
La primera en reconocer es a
mi patrona la señora Amelia J.

su sueño por mantener desde
1989 (año en que compró los
derechos para revivir La Prensa)
este rotativo en operación. Ha
sido demasiado el trabajo y res­

ejercer durante dos décadas y
media de continua publicación,
dos veces por semana. Ella se ha
destacado porque la comunidad
hispanoamericana residente en
el condado de Bexar cuente
con La Prensa de San Antonio
como vocera de los sucesos que
acontecen. Su interés por que La
Prensa se siga publicando con
notas de contenido positivo (en
inglés y español) ha sido la clave
para que anunciantes y lectores
la sigan apoyando.
En el concilio de la ciudad (San Antonio) tenemos la
presen­c ia de la alcaldesa Ivy
Taylor, quien de forma interina
y electa por el voto popular, se
convirtió en la primera mujer
de ascendencia afroamericana
que preside uno de los más
grandes municipios de la unión
La alcaldesa Taylor es la segunda mujer al frente del gobier­

fue la gran dama y leyenda
vivien­te Lila Crockell. Taylor
en su agenda tiene diversos programas de beneficio a la salud de
nuestra comunidad.
En seguridad pública cabe
destacar el efectivo trabajo que
ha venido realizando la Sheriff
Susan L. Pamerleau, quien, tras
su jubilación de la Fuerza Aérea
de los Estados Unidos con grado
de Major General, decidió aden­
trarse en la política postulándose
por el partido republicano como
candidata a titular de la Bexar

triunfo fue arrollador y ya en

En el deporte profesional,
San Antonio se encuentra bien
representado en el mejor baloncesto del mundo en la NBA con
la ex guardia Becky Hammon,
quien está por cumplir dos temporadas completas en el cargo
de asistente de entrenador del
pentacampeón Spurs.
Hammon es entrenadora de
tiempo completo y, recientemente en el partido contra Kings
de Sacramento, puso su granito

American Cancer Society provides funding to promote health equity in S.A.
By American Cancer Society
The American Cancer Society
will provide another year of funding in 2016 to support increased
access to colorectal cancer education and screening resources
in underserved communities
Thanks to support from Walgreens, CommuniCare Health
Centers will receive a $50,000
grant award to provide cancer
education and access to screening
for individuals in San Antonio,
San Marcos, Kyle, Wimberley
and Boerne.
The American Cancer Society’s Community Health Advocates implementing Nationwide
Grants for Empowerment and
Equity (CHANGE) Grant Program builds community and system capacity to promote health
equity, access and navigation
to screening resources within
underserved communities.
Funding for CHANGE grants
comes from Walgreens customers nationwide, who choose to
donate to the American Cancer
Society as they pay for their
purchases at checkout. CHANGE
grant recipients utilize funds
to reach underserved individuals with potentially life-saving
cancer education and implement strategies to reduce cancer
screening disparities.
“CommuniCare is proud to
continue a strong partnership with
the American Cancer Society to
promote lifesaving preventive
health measures such as cancer
screenings in our communities. I
want to thank the American Cancer Society staff for all of their
hard work, and most importantly,
Walgreens for funding to support
this much needed program,” said
Paul Nguyen, president and CEO
of CommuniCare Health Centers.
In an effort to increase the
percentage of colorectal cancer screening rates and stress
the importance of preventative
measures, the grant will allow
CommuniCare to offer colorectal cancer screenings to eligible
adults, age 50 and older, with a
focus on low-income, uninsured
and underinsured patients.
Patients will receive navigation services through a Colorectal
Navigator who will not only
help them navigate the healthcare system; but also, assist
with scheduling appointments
and reminding them of upcoming appointments and screenings. Screening navigation is
an evidence-based intervention
that reduces patient barriers to
screening and is recommended
by the Community Preventatives
Services Task Force and the
American Cancer Society.
According to the American
Cancer Society, disparities predominantly arise from inequities in work, wealth, income,
education, housing and overall
standard of living, as well as
social barriers to high-quality
cancer prevention, early detection and treatment services. Additionally, persons with lower
socioeconomic status are more
likely to experience increased
cancer risks due to tobacco use,
physical inactivity and poor diet
due to environmental or community barriers that provide
fewer opportunities for physical
activity and less access to fruits
and vegetables.
Since 2011, more than 370
grants have been provided
through the CHANGE Grant Program. As a result, grant recipients
have reached underserved men
and women through over 1.6
million reminders, education
and navigation engagements,
and provided more than 560,000
breast, cervical and colorectal low or no cost screenings.
This success was made possible
through donor support from all of
the CHANGE Program corporate
partners, including Walgreens.
The Walgreens Way to Well
Commitment program, which
focuses on improving everyday
health through the prevention
and early detection of leading
diseases, has been a supporter
of the CHANGE Grant Program
since 2012. The company’s overall support of the Society spans
two decades and contributions to
CHANGE have totaled $14 million to fund grants in local communities throughout the country
in partnership.
In addition to funding
CHANGE grants, Walgreens
served as a corporate enrollment
site for the Society’s Cancer
Prevention Study 3 (CPS-3), the
historic research study that will
help cancer researchers discover
more ways to prevent, detect and
treat cancer and save more lives.

Manning retires after 18 seasons
“There’s something about 18 years, 18 is a good
number, and today I retire from professional
football,” said Denver Broncos quarterback
Peyton Manning earlier this week. Fresh off
winning the Super Bowl, Manning, 39, will retire from the NFL. He was a Super Bowl MVP,
a 14-time Pro Bowl selection and a seven-time
first-team All-Pro. His teams made the playoffs
in 15 of his 18 seasons, and he reached the
4,000-yard passing mark in 14 seasons.

Cleveland Browns release Manziel
After two rocky seasons, the Cleveland Browns
have decided to waive quarterback Johnny
Manziel. The troubled 2012 Heisman Trophy
winner was investigated for allegedly striking
ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley in January, but
no charges were filed. Manziel was originally
drafted 22nd overall by the Browns in the 2014

Special to La Prensa
Spurs Sports & Entertainment
announced that Peter M. Holt
has retired as the organization’s
chairman and CEO and that Julianna Hawn Holt will assume
both roles.
Peter has held the position since
1996 when the Holts became the
largest shareholders in San Antonio Spurs, LLC. Peter will remain
on the organization’s board of
managers and continue as part
of the ownership group while
Julianna will become the team’s
governor on the NBA’s board of
“I’m proud of what we’ve
achieved over the last two decades,” said Peter. “The championships are wonderful, bringing
new sports franchises to San
Antonio is important but the biggest accomplishment for me will
always be the impact we’ve had
in our community. The pride,
support and love that our city has
for the Spurs is truly amazing.”
Under the Holts’ leadership,
the team has become one of
the premier franchises in North
American sports. The Spurs have
captured five NBA titles (1999,
2003, 2005, 2007 and 2014)
while qualifying for the playoffs
19 straight seasons. The 2015-16
Spurs have a 54-10 record, the
best mark to start a season in
franchise history, and are a perfect
30-0 at home, which is the third
best home record to start a season
in NBA history.
“Our ownership in the Spurs
has always been a family affair,”
said Julianna. “For many years
I’ve had the desire to take a more
active role with Spurs Sports &
Entertainment. We felt this was
the right time to make this transition. We are very excited about
the current Spurs season and the
future of the organization.”
Spurs Sports & Entertainment
owns five sports franchises, the
San Antonio Spurs, the San
Antonio Rampage (AHL), the
San Antonio Stars (WNBA),
San Antonio FC (USL) and the
Austin Spurs (NBA Development
League). In addition, SS&E manages the day-to-day operations
of the AT&T Center and Toyota

organization has grown to over
350 full-time and almost 1,000
part-time employees.
“We’ve been fortunate to have
a wonderful ownership group
for the last two decades,” said
Rick Pych, president of business
operations for SS&E. “Peter has
provided great leadership. His
dedication, vision and management style have allowed all of us
to develop, grow and succeed.
We thank him for his service to
the Spurs and the San Antonio
community. All of us are excited
about the future of SS&E under
the guidance and leadership of
The board of managers of San
Antonio Spurs, LLC, per the request of Julianna, has appointed
Pych as co-CEO.

Bank, Hawn Brothers Production,
Hewit & Dougherty, Hawn Holt
Interests, HOLT CAT, Hawn Holt
Cross Triangle Ranch and Prade
Growing up along the Texas
Gulf Coast in Corpus Christi,
Julianna developed a love for the
arts, education and agriculture
while cutting her teeth in the
Hawn family’s businesses. She
graduated from W.B. Ray High
School and moved to upstate New
York to study at Bennett College,
before two years later transferring
to Texas Tech University.
After graduation, Julianna’s
love for agriculture drew her to
the Hawn family ranch east of
Gonzales, Texas, where for 13
years she learned the practical,
day-to-day part of ranching. After
that time she moved back to Corpus Christi to work in a different
segment of the family businesses
at American Bank. In each of the
Hawn family’s ventures in banking, real estate and oil, Julianna
developed a simple leadership
motto: build skill and character,
keep a sense of humor and always
be yourself.
An avid patron and supporter
of the arts, Julianna was instrumental in the development of the
AT&T Center in 2002 and the
building’s $110 million renovation in the summer of 2015 as
she collaborated with a large
group, including the architects
and contractors, to create a premier entertainment destination
in South Texas that portrays the

El nuevo equipo de fútbol
soccer San Antonio FC (SAFC),
afiliado a la United Soccer
League (USL) y propiedad de
la empresa Spurs Sports & Entertainment (SS&E), tras dos
semanas de entrenamientos en
el STAR Soccer Complex, con
el éxito deseado, el sábado 5
de marzo sostuvo un par de
partidos de pretemporada bajo
la observación de Tim Holt,
gerente, y Darren Powell, entrenador técnico, los jugadores ya
fichados y los que se encuentran
en calidad de invitados.
En estadio cerrado (Toyota

Young, con el que empataron
En su segundo partido con el
arquero Matt Cardone, nativo
de San Antonio de 22 años de
edad, SAFC, bajo la cabaña,

Durante el partido, el entrenador Powell estuvo activo
animando a sus jugadores, indicándoles a grito abierto que

“Pongan la pelota en movi­
miento. Todos al ataque no
cedan terreno. ¡Vamos! ¡Sigan
combinándose el balón!”, expresaba Powell cuando faltaban
minutos para que se diera el
silbatazo final ante la gente comandada por el director técnico
El mediocampista angelino
Carlos Álvarez, quien fue el
primero en fichar con SAFC,
dejó ver sus cualidades sobre
la grama acoplándose con sus
compañeros y el arquero Cardone.
Álvarez llegó a SAFC con experiencia de dos años jugando
para los equipos Chivas USA y
Colorado Rapids, ambos afiliados a la Major League Soccer
(MLS), y con el club Charlotte
Independence, que es sucursal
del equipo Colorado Rapids.
Álvarez cursó estudios superiores en University of Connecticut, donde jugó a nivel
colegial obteniendo diploma
en español.
Fue elegido por Chivas USA
durante el 2013 MLS SuperDraft, marcando su debut profesional en su misma tierra ante
el Galaxy de Los Ángeles.
“El campo de entrenamiento
ha sido bueno para todos, ya
nos estamos acoplando y ello
es bueno para estar en óptima
condición, ya que se acerca
la fecha de la inauguración
en la primera temporada de
SAFC. Me siento contento de
pertenecer a esta franquicia.
Todos estamos con mentalidad
ganadora, como se vio en los
partidos de pretemporada”,
expresó Álvarez.
La decisión de Carlos Álvarez por firmar con SAFC fue
porque gusta de comenzar con
equipos que tienen futuro. A
principios de su llegada a SAFC
enfatiza la importancia de haber
sido convocado por SS&E, pues
bien pudo haber firmado con
equipos ya establecidos en la
MLSM; sin embargo, decidió
embarcarse en una nueva etapa
de su carrera siendo bienvenido
por la familia de los Spurs.
El gerente Holt, en breve
charla con La Prensa, dijo que
a paso firme se están realizando
trabajos de remodelación del
estadio Toyota Field, que ya
luce en el exterior cambios visuales con el nombre y logotipo
del plantel.
“Poco a poco hemos venido
realizando cambios en la fachada del estadio. Pronto comenzaremos a cambiar las butacas
y los colores alrededor del
interior del estadio con los que
se identifica nuestra empresa
(Los Spurs). Los muchachos
se vieron bien jugando durante
ambos partidos”, apuntó Holt.
SAFC este sábado continua­
rá con sus partidos de preparación; jugará un encuentro
amistoso contra el visitante
Dallas City FC, que milita en
el fútbol elite amateur en la
liga National Premier Soccer
League (NPSL). Su cita es a
las 2 p.m. a puerta cerrada en
el Toyota Field.
Entre semana SAFC, el miércoles 16 de marzo a las 2
p.m., recibirá al equipo local
Corinthians FC SA, que juega
en NPSL –South Central Conference of The South Region,
propiedad del magnate Pete
Veras, y dirigido por Benjamín
Galindo “El Maestro”, ex jugador de Chivas de Guadalajara y
Selección Nacional de México.

La estafa que hice ante Gasol faltando dos minutos para concluir
el partido fue de repente. Estuve
cerca de él cuando iba rumbo a
la canasta y entonces pensé: ‘este
balón es mío y así fue como pude
concretar la jugada’”, dijo Martin
a La Prensa.
En relación a la hazaña del
capitán Duncan por haber logrado
la marca de los 15 mil rebotes
Popovich afirmó: “Al parecer
en cada partido Timmy estará
sumando marcas a su foja. Esta
noche pudimos verlo llegar a los
15 mil rebotes, lo cual nos tiene
orgullosos de él. Duncan es único
en su estilo de juego”.
“El ver mi nombre al lado de
otros grandes basquetbolistas
es para mí algo impresionante.
Durante ese lapso he tenido mucha diversión, ver sumar marcas
a mi récord. Pero sobre todo es
que tras lograr dicha marca pude
colaborar con mis compañeros
en la victoria obtenida esta noche
contra un gran rival como lo son
los Bulls de Chicago. Otra victoria más en casa, la cual nos sigue
ubicando por buen camino previo
a la recta final de la temporada”,
apuntó Duncan.

que el magnate Peter M. Holt se
ha jubilado de la organización

St. Mary’s Kling-Cavazos inducted into
Heartland Conference Hall of Fame
By Chad Peters
Kymberly Kling-Cavazos’
name now sits next to Buddy
Meyer’s in the Heartland Conference Hall of Fame.
One St. Mary’s legend joined
another, as the softball icon KlingCavazos joined the one-of-a-kind
Basketball Coach Meyer in earning the conference’s highest honor. Kling-Cavazos was inducted
during a ceremony at halftime
of the Heartland Conference
Women’s Basketball Tournament at the Union Multipurpose
Activity Center in Tulsa (Sunday,
March 6).
The Rattler legend was inducted
alongside former Texas A&M
International baseball player Ryan
Flynn and Heartland Conference
commissioner Tony Stigliano,
joining Meyer and another in the
five-member Hall of Fame.
“During my time as a player
and a coach at St. Mary’s, Buddy
Meyer was certainly a Rattler
icon,” Kling-Cavazos said. “To
be forever linked with him in this
Hall of Fame is truly a blessing.”
Kling-Cavazos continued: “It
is a privilege to be recognized
not only by my St. Mary’s family
but by the conference as a whole.
I would like to thank my family,
friends, coaches and teammates
for their continued support, and
I would also like to thank the
Heartland Conference for this
tremendous honor.”
Few have accomplished what
Kling-Cavazos achieved while
wearing the Gold and Blue from
2002 through 2004, as the pitcher
was a three-time All-American,
three-time Heartland Conference
Player of the Year, was named
the 2003 National Softball Player
of the Year and was chosen as a
Top 25 Athlete of the Decade in
NCAA Division II for the 2000’s.
And she achieved all that while
leading Rattler Softball to its
second national championship –
and the softball team’s first as a
member of the NCAA – back in
2002 during St. Mary’s infancy in
the Heartland Conference.
“I played for the Heartland
Conference in its early years and
it has been exciting to watch the
league’s continued growth under
Tony Stigliano,” said KlingCavazos, who last month had her
jersey number 17 retired by St.
Mary’s University Athletics. “I’m
excited for the future of the league
and honored for my continued association with it moving forward.”
For her career, Kling-Cavazos

graduated as the all-time Heartland Conference leader in countless hitting and pitching categories, including shutouts, strikeouts, wins, batting average, RBI,
doubles and on-base percentage.
And to this day, her career ERA of
1.11 still stands atop the Heartland
Conference record book.
In all, the St. Mary’s Hall of
Famer graduated with 506 strikeouts in 645.2 innings pitched,
totaling 88 victories, 29 shutouts
and four no-hitters in 103 games
started – not to mention the 159
RBI, 60 doubles and career batting
average of .407 that she produced
at the plate.
In 2002, she led the NCAA in
hits with 92, led the nation in doubles with 24 and led the country
in RBI with 69. She also tied for
the nation’s lead in victories that
season, winning 35 games in the
circle. Kling-Cavazos graduated
with a career record of 88 victories
and 12 losses.

Estudiantes del tercero y quinto grado en Mead Elementary
School, que se encuentran participando en el programa de ciencias
del Silver & Black Give Back
Team Up Challenge, recibieron la
visita de patinadores canadienses
jugadores del club Rampage de
San Antonio, afiliado a la American Hockey League/AHL.
Los jugadores visitantes fueron
el central Troy Bourke, de 21
años de edad, nativo de Onoway,
Canadá, y el alero izquierdo Reid
Petryk, de 23 años de edad, nativo
de Edmonton, Alberta, Canadá,
ambos prospectos de la sucursal
Avalanche de Colorado, afiliado
a la National Hockey League
En el laboratorio de ciencias
Bourke y Petryk fueron presentados por Kelly Galvin, quien
representó a la empresa Spurs
Sports & Entertainment, que es la
propietaria del Rampage.
Los distinguidos visitantes, que
vistieron sus respectivas camisas
de juego con los números 11 y
48, de inmediato se dieron a la
tarea por ganarse la confianza de
los pequeños estudiantes y de sus
mentores; Benjamin Smith, Chris
Clark, Bridget Lynch, y Gabrielle
Larguza, quienes cursan estudios
de preparatoria en el Texas Military Institute (TMI) –The Episcopal School of Texas.
A ellos se unió el universitario
Tim Davison, voluntario de Trinity University.

Los alumnos a la vez recibieron
reconocimiento por su dura tarea
con la que han venido cumpliendo
en proyecto de ciencia en el Silver & Black Give Back (SBGB)
Team Up Challenge.
Los estudiantes mentores del
TMI colaboran durante el año escolar con Mead Elementary promoviendo educación en ciencias
y en sus habilidades académicas
en el salón de clases.
“Cada mes tratamos de hacer
dos o tres visitas a este centro educativo, con lo que cumplimos a la
vez con nuestra clase de ciencias,
que llevamos en TMI. La visita
de los jugadores motiva a los
estudiantes y les ayuda porque se
interesen más en dicha materia”,
afirmó la preparatoriana Larguza.
Bourke y Petryk, además
de participar en los talleres,
escucharon preguntas de los
alumnos, y les dieron excelentes
respuestas motivándolos para
que continúen superándose académicamente.
“Nosotros también aprendimos
algo nuevo. Nos motiva ver que
estos alumnos se interesen por
sobresalir en una maravillosa
materia como son las ciencias
naturales”, afirmó Petryk.
Por su lado, Bourke enfatizó la
importancia de que el Rampage
apoye programas educativos en
la comunidad, indicando a la vez
que su visita los motivará para
continuar adelante en la presente
temporada en la que les resta por
jugar 14 partidos, con el último
en el AT&T Center el viernes 15
de abril contra Manitoba Moose,
de Winnipeg, Canadá (7:30 p.m.).
En el Rusty Lyons Sports Park se le festejaron sus 54 años de feliz existencia a José Villalobos,

CIA Bakery Café reopens doors for your sweet tooth
By Christina Acosta
[email protected]
Price Range: $
The Culinary Institute of America
(CIA) is known for their savory
restaurant Nao and their occasional
Latin pop-up dinners; however, for
a limited time, you have the opportunity to taste their sweet side.
This week, the CIA was excited to
announce the return of the popular
CIA Bakery Café at the Pearl for the
next six weeks. The café was created
to invoke a uniquely exciting dining
experience for customers, while providing CIA students the knowledge
with the daily operations of a bakery.
The bakery is also used as a
capstone course for CIA baking
and pastry arts majors, who will be
graduating in April with their Associate of Applied Science (AAS)
degrees. Students will work in both
the front and back of the house at
the café under the direction of Chefs
Alain Dubernard and Patrick Clark,
as well as instructor Jenny Placette.
La Prensa recently spoke with
Chef Dubernard to discuss how
students make a bittersweet ending to their culinary education. For
students who have put their baking
skills to the table at the CIA institute
for two years, this café will bring
them the opportunity to show what
they learned.
“We are like any other bake
shop. We check to verify the skills
of the students and do a little bit of
everything from breakfast breads to
scones all the way to empanadas. It
is a variation where the instructors
teach and forecast students on what
to expect and for them to put those
skills on the table. It is basically
everything it takes to maintain a
bakery,” explained Chef Dubernard.
Once instructors and students
have tasted the final products on the
menu, Chef Dubernard revealed that
many of the items will be recognized
by regular customers.
“Expect the highest standards
at Culinary Institute of America.
People will eat delicious products,”
advised Chef Dubernard. “Students
also have the opportunity to put out
certain products that they enjoy cre-
ating and taste test the items, other
students then give their opinion,
including myself, and we decide if
it should go on the menu … I have
always worked hard to expand their
creativity, and they have made well
done, high quality pastries and provided good service to their finishing
Many pastries customer’s enjoyed include Chocolate XS Cake,
Coconut Frangipane cupcake, Cannele de Bordeaux and Cranberry
Walnut Scones.
The CIA Bakery Café will also
offer breakfast and lunch items including bagels, mac and cheese, new
salads and savory dishes. In addition
to new creations, the bakery will
also carry great coffee and signature
aguas frescas every weekday until
April 14.
“I hope that many people come
to try all the goods our CIA has to
offer and give us feedback. We are
excited to open our doors every year
when this time comes because we
want the community to approach
us, and we would like to see the
results of two years of hard work,”
expressed Chef Dubernard. “That
is our reason to be here: to educate
and be committed to our students
and with everybody here in San

Two nights with Harry Connick, Jr. at the Tobin
By Lucy Almanza
[email protected]
The Tobin Center of the Performing Arts will welcome musician, singer, composer and star
of the stage and screen, Harry
Connick, Jr. for two special nights
this spring.
The Grammy-winning recording artist and judge on “American
Idol” will perform on April 25 and
26 at 7:30 p.m. at the Tobin’s HE-B Performance Hall, in support
of his new album “That Would
Be Me.”
Tickets can be purchased online at www.tobincenter.org, via
phone (210) 223-8624 and inperson at the Tobin Center’s Box
Office located at 100 Auditorium
Circle, 78205. Tickets are $59.50,
$69.50, $89.50 and $109.50.
The New Orleans native has
felt a strong connection to music since he was five years old,
which has grown and evolved
throughout his three decade career, making him a pivotal figure
in American music. Besides being a successful musician, singer,
composer, songwriter, arranger
and bandleader, Connick’s also
managed to compile a compelling
acting and performance résumé,
going from music, to film, to TV,
to Broadway and to the concert
stage time and time again.
Most recently, Connick has
been seen as a respected judge on
the Fox TV hit show “American
Idol,” currently in its final season.
However, the 48-year-old singer
will continue his creative journey
on television. His daytime entertainment show “Harry” is slated
for a fall debut this year.
For his latest record “That
Would Be Me,” Connick took a
step outside his musical comfort

zone and worked with two “external” producers on this album – a
first in his career. Almost every
single project before has been
produced by him and his longtime
producer and collaborator Tracey
“Prior to this album – I’d go into
the room and write charts or songs
or what was needed, I come into
the studio whether it’s with a trio
or orchestra or funk band or whatever, and I tell them what I want
them to play how I want them to
play it, and it’s 100 percent credit
or fault on me,” Connick said.
Working with the acclaimed
Eg White (Sam Smith, Adele,
Florence and The Machine) and
Butch Walker (Taylor Swift, Katy
Perry, Pink), the singer carefully
crafted an album full of surprises
and stirring musical conjurations,
resulting in 11 new songs.
“This is brand new territory. I’m
used to jumping in head-first, but
all of a sudden I found myself not
in full control of the wheel anymore,” Connick stated in regards
to the recording process. “Butch

del Día de los Muertos. Su
colorido video destaca toda la
vistosidad gráfica y musical que
hacen de La Santa Cecilia uno de
los grupos alternativos latinos
más importantes del momento.
Y sencillo más reciente fue
“Nunca más”, una cumbia funky
que toca el tema de la búsqueda
de los emigrantes por la justicia,
de quienes huyeron de sus países
de origen por la violencia.
Para la grabación de este tema
la banda contó con la participación de David Hidalgo y Steve
Berlin de Los Lobos.
Recientemente, la banda dio
a conocer un video hecho por
estudiantes sobre “Nunca Más”.
“Escribimos esta canción inspirada por diferentes movimientos
estudiantiles del mundo que han
enfrentado la persecución mientras pelean por cambios positivos
en sus sociedades. Nos inspira
ver a los jóvenes tomar esta
canción en sus propias manos y
expresar lo que sienten a través
de este video. Esperamos que
inspire a los jóvenes de diferentes lugares a hacer lo mismo”,
expresó el grupo al respecto.
El álbum “Buenaventura”
incluye también los temas “Sa-
cudo la pereza”, “Here we go
again”, “Tragos de Amargo
Licor” (con Enrique Bunbury),
“Vámonos” (en colaboración
con Fito Paez), “Caminante
Nocturno” (con Latino Arts

Wisconsin), “Pa´Que trabajar”
y “Sucede” y está producido por

van desde los géneros latinos,
rock, pop, norteño, salsa, caribes, R&B, jazz latino, vals y

es catalogada por revistas musicales y comentaristas radiales
como “Pan-americana”.

is more of a ‘let’s play the song
in the room’ kind of guy, so we
invited a couple more musicians
in; with Eg, it was a completely
different experience – it was just
the two of us in a room writing,
starting with an idea, a groove or
a chord or melody line.”
This was a contrasting experience for the performer since
he wrote the music, lyric and
arrangements for his previous album, “Every Man Should Know.”
However, he admits that even
though it was difficult at times,
it was an overall enlightening
process where he met “musical
soul mates.”
“To be able to bounce ideas
off someone and not have to do
everything at the same time – I
did benefit from that,” he said.
Overall, Connick enjoyed both
collaborative styles and had the
final say on the end result.
Released in October of last
year, “That Would Be Me” includes infectious gems like the
White-produced “(I Like It When
You) Smile,” which includes an
impromptu-hand clap and Connick serving up a one-of-a-kindscat-rap-of-a-vocal that heats up
mid-song and never lets down.
Fans will be able to enjoy this
song during the shows and many
others, including the percolating
“(I Think I) Love U A Little Bit,”
the heart-wrenching ballad “Do
You Really Need Her,” the sultry/funky “Songwriter” and the
catchy first single, “(I Do) Like
We Do.”

President Obama and First Lady
Michelle Obama speak at SXSW 2016
San Antonio, an Irish experience
Special to La Prensa
The Irish experience in San
Antonio first began when Hugo
Oconor came to New Spain as
Governor-ad-interim serving
from 1767-1770.
Hugo Oconor was born Hugh
O’Connor in Dublin, Ireland
around 1734. He ran afoul of
English Law in Ireland and
fled to Spain where he joined
the Spanish Army. As Hugo
Oconor, he laid the cornerstone
of Mission San Jose in 1768.
In 1772, he was named Inspector General and Commandante
General of the northern province
of New Spain, whose charge was
to bring order to the far flung
colonies as well as its security.
O’Connor was not the only
one to adopt a Spanish flair to
his name. Records of Spanish
troops with Irish names also
show how they were identified in Spanish. O’Donoghue
became O’Donoju, Murphy became Morfi (Fray Juan Agustin
Morfi wrote a work on Mission
San Jose calling it the Queen of
the Missions of Texas),
O’Brien became Obregon,
Berrigan became Barragan,
Galvan and Moran remained
the same and the name Phelan
became Felan.
Where the surnames remained
the same, the first names would
change such as Bernardo
O’Higgins, Pedro O’Daly, or
Patricio Mccarthy. (In Mexico

21st century before an audience
of creators, early adopters and
entrepreneurs who are defining
the future of our connected lives.

audience to apply their ideas
and talents to make technology
work for us – especially when it
comes to tackling big challenges
like increasing participation in
the political process and fighting
climate change.

comes to SXSW Music to discuss
the “Let Girls Learn” initiative,
which aims to break barriers
for the 62 million girls around
the world who are not in school
today, more than half of whom
are adolescent. The SXSW Music Conference brings the global
music industry together and offers
the perfect platform to celebrate
Women’s History Month, as the
First Lady provides her call to
action to support girls’ education.
“I can’t imagine a better way
to celebrate our event’s 30th year
than to welcome both the President and First Lady to SXSW,”
said SXSW Co-founder Roland
Swenson. “As each new generation comes up at SXSW they look
for ways they can be of service,
and it’s important to reflect and
support that message. President
and Mrs. Obama’s visit here will
inspire attendees to that purpose.”
First Lady Michelle Obama’s
event is open to all SXSW Music,
Film, Gold and Platinum registrants.
Fostering creative and professional growth, SXSW is the
premier destination for discovery.

Explore Storybook Houses at the
S.A. Botanical Garden this spring
Special to La Prensa
The San Antonio Botanical Garden and the American Institute of
Architects will bring storybooks to
life this spring with the interactive
display Storybook Houses, which
debuted on March 5 and will continue until July 10.
The five unique interpretations,
selected from a competitive field
of submissions, will be on display
for Garden visitors to explore inside
and out.
The Storybook Houses Exhibit is
part of an ongoing, award-winning
partnership between the San Antonio Botanical Garden and the San
Antonio chapter of The American
Institute of Architects (AIA), aimed
at showcasing both organizations’
commitment to and focus on the
environment, recycling, education
and sustainability.
Area architects and design teams
submitted entries for consideration,
utilizing a wide array of styles
and materials. A panel of judges
representing the AIA, San Antonio
Public Library and the Botanical
Garden reviewed the designs and
scored them based on a variety of
criteria such as creativity of design
and use/re-use of weather-resistant
materials; focus on recycling, reuse
or sustainability; accessibility; collaboration with others; and design
appeal for all ages of visitors.
The five entries selected for
the exhibit were constructed at
the Garden and are now ready for
exploration in March.
“This AIA partnership is a treat
for the imagination. This year’s

Early San Antonio had many
outstanding Irish personages.
Edward and Thomas Dwyer,
John Twohig come to mind as
does Bryan Callaghan Sr., a
native of Ireland, who married
into one of the families of the
Canary Islanders. The Callaghan
family gave three mayors to San
Antonio. They were Bryan Sr.,
Bryan Jr., and Alfred, who was
mayor in the 1940s. The Kildays
gave sons to church and state.
One son was congressman of
the 20th District who died in office and was replaced by Henry
B. Gonzales. Another son was
Sheriff of Bexar County and
another an Oblate Priest.
San Antonio throughout the
first part of the 20th century
had no Irish organizations because of the depression, and
World War II and the Korean
Campaign. When these conflicts
were over, people looked again
at their background and started
The Harp and Shamrock Society of Texas was started in 1966
and celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. This society has
celebrated the visits to San Antonio of consuls general, members of the Irish government and
the President of Ireland, Mary
Robinson in 1995 among other
persons seeking business ties
with San Antonio.
St. Patrick’s Day is important
for us and all people because
it talks about a history of San
Antonio that most are unaware
of and some who think the Irish
were unimportant in San Antonio’s story. Any San Antonian
of a certain age and who went
to a Catholic School might have
had Irish nuns. The history of
the Irish in San Antonio is far
more than these words of mine
and far numerous.

‘Captain America: Civil War’
Confusion stirred as the ‘Knight
of Cups’ stalled through
By Christina Acosta
[email protected]
Many movies enjoy using a
creative side to tell the story using
a form of art to describe characters
and settings. However, for this
film, creativity was not so wonderful to sit through two hours.
“Knight of Cups” was a type
of American movie that was in
over its head to be similar to a
European film. European films
make creativity appear effortless
on screen using outer objects such
as an ocean or a painting to tell
the story without trying too hard.
Director Terrence Malick (“The
Tree of Life” and “The Thin Red
Line”) failed to create a movie
that told the audience what exactly was going on, leaving many to
figure out what direction the main
character was going to step into.
“Knight of Cups” follows writer
Rick (Christian Bale) on a journey
through the exotic playgrounds
of Los Angeles and Las Vegas
as he searches for his true love
and himself. Even as he moves
through desirable landscapes of
mansions, resorts, beaches and
clubs, Rick tackles through complicated relationships with his
crazy bad tempered brother (Wes
Bentley) and his absent father
(Brian Dennehy).
His quest to break the spell of
his dissatisfaction takes him on
a series of adventures with six
enthralling women: the rebellious Della (Imogen Poots), who
reminds him to not be a coward
and to lead a defiant life as she
does spontaneously on the streets
of L.A; his physician ex-wife
(Cate Blanchett), who loved him
and was ready to start a family,
but Rick carried a wandering eye;
Helen (Frieda Pinto), a model who
lived life in the shadows of many;
a spirited, playful dancer (Teresa
Palmer), who is an opportunist
willing to do anything to get her
way to the top; Elizabeth (Natalie Portman), a woman he has
wronged in the past; and Isabel
(Isabel Lucas), who was the right
woman to help him move forward
to adulthood.
Through his journey, Rick
moves through his bewilderment
ways of coping with stressful situations that hardly revolved around
work. The deeper he searches for
beauty, humanity and a rhythm of
life, the more his journey becomes
his destination.
Although the movie was trying to reach creativity, it felt like
one was watching a high school
student making their first independent film. Before the student
could try again, he/she needed
One of my biggest pet peeves
throughout the movie was the fact
that characters did not communicate with one another. In fact, we
only heard their conversation as
the film used overhead dialogue.
We do not know what happened
with the women who carved their
marking on him, leaving us with
many questions that include “why
did they break up?”
Through it all, the movie left
many with confusion not only
of Rick’s relationships, but also
the direction of the storyline. The
movie forgot to include what exactly Rick was trying to learn to
improve his life. We only knew
him briefly when he was with his
father or brother.
Ultimately, Malick failed to tell
the story of a man dealing with
first-world problems without using the necessities of dialogue and
storyline to tell the story. Malick
should stick to a narrow direction
to tell the story. If he wants to be
a creative/independent director,
he should take ask for help from
creative directors to learn how to
combine art with film.

Esperanza Center presents tribute to
South American folk singers and activists
Special to La Prensa
The Esperanza Peace & Justice Center will present a special
tribute “Noche Azul de Esperanza: Cantoras Del Sur” to three
women who were part of the
Nueva Canción movement.
Mercedes Sosa, Violeta Parra
and Soledad Bravo are South
American folk singers and activists and participated in the Nueva
Canción movement, which was
a political folk music movement
incorporating indigenous sounds
of South America which began
in the 1960s in Chile.
Azul Barrientos will pay tribute to these three women on
Saturday, March 19 at the Esperanza Peace & Justice Center
at 8 p.m.
About the Cantoras
Mercedes Sosa, the celebrated Argentinian folk singer and
political activist is described as
“the voice of Latin America,”
she was revered as a commen-
tator on the political and social
turmoil that afflicted the region.
She won three Latin Grammy
awards and received a huge
number of honorary titles including the UN Voluntary Fund for
Women prize from the United
Nations, in recognition of her
defense of women’s rights. “I
didn’t choose to sing for people,
life chose me to sing.”
Violeta Parra is known as
one of the famous artists of traditional Chilean folk-art (“arte
popular”). She managed to bring
folk-art of Chile to a new level
especially in the fields of art and
music. She learned how to sing
and play guitar when she was
10 and soon joined her relatives,
who had a traveling show.
In the early 1950s, she began
to research, document and record
Chilean folk songs. Many of
those songs inspired her to write
her own compositions. Parra had
a complex life. She was a sophisticated songwriter and performer
who toured Europe in the mid-
1950s. She was also a visual
artist whose work in paintings,
embroidery and sculpture was
exhibited at the Louvre in Paris.
Soledad Bravo is a Venezuelan singer whose repertoire is
a vivid mixture of fiery, vivid
Caribbean and Latin rhythms,
Sephardic elegies and heartwarming ballads. Considered
to be one of the best voices in
Latin America, one of her most
popular and best-known songs
is Hasta Siempre, a Cuban hymn
by Carlos Puebla to Ernesto
“Che” Guevara.
Azul will be accompanied by
musicians Aaron Prado, George
Prado and Nina Rodriquez.
The Esperanza Peace & Justice Center is located at 922 San
Pedro Ave. Tickets are $5 más
o menos at the door. Doors will
open at 7:15 p.m. and seating is
first come first served. Concessions will be available for sale.
