La campaña anual “H-E-B
Tournament of Champions”
en su 31 aniversario tiene el
objetivo de reunir un fondo
de 8.4 millones de dólares
generados por las inscripciones
al torneo de golf 2016 que organiza H-E-B. Este capital será
distribuido entre un centenar
de instituciones caritativas y
agencias no lucrativas en San
Antonio y otras comunidades
del estado.
Además del torneo de golf,
esta campaña de capital tiene
una segunda fase, que es el
trabajo que harán 1,200 voluntarios para mejorar las instalaciones y edificios y campos de
recreo en Blue Print Ministries,
Inner City Development, St.
Jude’s Ranch y San Antonio
Food Bank.
La campaña de mejoramiento material en las entidades
enumeradas líneas arriba empezó el jueves 9 de junio y en
entre estas actividades está
incluida la recepción que el público y voluntarios darán a un
grupo de combatientes heridos
en la guerra de Iraq, quienes
ocuparán casas habitación
para ellos y sus familias que
fueron construidas como parte
de esta campaña a lo largo de
la avenida New Braunfels.
Esta recepción se celebró el
viernes 10 de junio.
Los trabajos de mejoramiento empezaron a las 8 de la mañana (jueves 9) continuando
por el resto del fin de semana.
La fuerza de trabajo está integrada por 1,200 voluntarios
que trabajan a las múltiples
empresas de vendedores, pro­
veedores de mercancía y de
servicios que tienen contratos
con la cadena H-E-B. A ellos
se agregan voluntarios de que
laboran en la cadena H-E-B.
En San Antonio Food Bank,
el jueves a las 8 de la mañana llegaron varios autobuses
transportando a 280 voluntarios –representando diversas
empresas– para dedicar un día
de labor en las instalaciones
de SAFB.
Los voluntarios se apres­
taron a cumplir diferentes
tareas como empacar cajas
de alimentos, que son distribuidos diariamente por Food
Bank. Una parte de este grupo
trabajó en el mantenimiento de
los campos de cultivo anexos
al Food Bank.
En Blue Print Ministries
(2275 Hays) los voluntarios
unidos con jóvenes del East
Side trabajaron en casas de
familias modestas practicando
diferentes obras de reparación
en el techo, poniendo paredes
nuevas (draywall), pisos, pintura e instalaciones de servicios
domésticos.
En St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, ubicado en el suburbio
de Bulverde, los trabajadores
voluntarios mejoraron los
campos de recreo de los niños,
limpiaron las cabañas y las
áreas de recreo.
Para mejorar las condiciones
habitacionales en el West Side
socios y voluntarios de Inner
City Development se concentraron en Lanier High School
para partir de allí a diferentes
casas habitación y lugares
públicos con el objetivo de rea­
lizar trabajo de mejoramiento
ambiental.

The Bexar County Commissioners Court received a
donation of $30,000 from
Temple Beth-El Tuesday morning to support the new Early
Intervention Program of the
Children’s Court.
At hand to celebrate were
Bexar County Judge Nelson
Wolff, 225th District Judge
Peter Sakai, President of Hidalgo Foundation Tracy Wolff,
President of the Board at
Temple Beth-El David Adelman and several fund members
of Temple Beth-El.
The program in Judge
Sakai’s court will help reunify
families with young children
by emphasizing a healthy attachment between parent and
child, focusing on the most
vulnerable populations in the
child welfare system – children
three years old and younger.
According to the Texas Department of Family Protective
Services, there were 4,941
cases of child abuse and neglect last year in San Antonio.
In an effort to decrease these
statistics, the program will
target the young mothers who
had their children removed
by Child Protective Services
because of child abuse and
neglect cases by providing a
wraparound multi-disciplinary
team approach.
For Judge Sakai, the fund
was necessary for abuse and
neglectful parents to receive the
help they need before the child
grows older.
“Many parents are dealing
with drugs and alcohol addiction, mental health, poverty,
criminal activity and illiteracy.
These are cycles that we need
to break in order to get these
healthy families as a whole,”
Judge Sakai told La Prensa.
“We are bringing children and
families into these intensive
programs that the court and
I, as the presiding judge, will
preside over to make sure that
parents are held accountable;
the parents get the services they
need and we resolve the issues
they face.”
The donation was secured
by the Hidalgo Foundation
of Bexar County, a nonprofit
organization formed in 2001
to give Bexar County a fund
targeting charitable, literary,
historical and educational
purposes. So far, the foundation has raised $400,000 for
the Early Intervention Program
allowing the fund to grow to
its potential to help families
in need.
The Children’s Court program will achieve their mission
by providing a comprehensive
network of services in mental
health and cognitive social
development to families with
children who are involved in
the child welfare system. Parents will be empowered with
child development skills and
education, while addressing
attachment and bonding issues
often seen in these vulnerable
children.
Ultimately, the donation
will lead to an improved home
life once parents and children
receive the aid they need, creating unity with parents and
children. This is the first step
to transforming parents into
proper and fit role models for
young children.
“We are going to have
healthy children grow up to
healthy adults. Parents will no
longer be a burden on society,
having to constantly put them
in jail or have them stay in
our assistant programs… We
are creating a synergy here
in Bexar County to take care
of our children and families,”
concluded Judge Sakai.
Judge Peter Sakai is grateful for Temple Beth-El, who
awarded $30,000 to an Early Intervention Program that

Con los días de verano
cerca (vacaciones, playa,
piscina y actividades al aire
libre) el Centro para el Control y Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC) recuerda a los
estadounidenses protegerse
la piel para evitar cáncer
de piel, el tipo de cáncer
más común en los Estados
Unidos.
“La mayoría de los casos
del melanoma, el tercer tipo
de cáncer de piel más mortal,

son provocados por la exposición a la luz ultravioleta
(UV)”, sostiene el CDC.
Los rayos UV pueden causar daños en la piel desprotegida en tan solo quince
minutos, pero pueden pasar
hasta doce horas para que se
note el daño.
El CDC explica que la piel
bronceada es en realidad
una piel que ha sufrido daños; prácticamente cualquier
cambio en la coloración de
la piel. Y que aunque el día

los rayos UV lo que dañan la
piel, no la temperatura.
Asimismo, indica que el
bronceado en interiores
(camas de bronceado) con­
lleva a la exposición de rayos
UVA y UVB, que también
dañan la piel y pueden ocasionar cáncer.
Las camas de bronceado
son peligrosas para las personas que empiezan a broncearse muy jóvenes. Y en la
medida que lo siguen hacien­
do a lo largo de su vida
el bronceado en interiores
puede causar envejecimiento
prematuro de la piel, manchas de la edad, cambiar la
textura de la piel y aumentar
la posibilidad de contraer
enfermedades en el ojo potencialmente cegadoras.
Asimismo, el bronceado
en interiores no es más seguro que el bronceado al
aire libre.
Un cambio en la piel es
el síntoma más común de
cáncer de piel. Esto puede ser
una lesión nueva, una llaga
que no cicatriza o un cambio
en un lugar.
Recomendaciones
Por lo tanto el CDC recomienda para proteger la
piel durante los días de verano: quedarse en la sombra,
especialmente durante los
mediodías, proteger la piel
expuesta al sol con ropa; usar
sombrero de ala ancha para
cubrir la cara, orejas, cuello
y cabeza; usar lentes de sol
que en lo posible bloqueen el
100 por ciento de los rayos
UVA y UVB.
También utilizar filtro solar con factor de protección
solar (FPS) 15 o más alto
y que contenga protección
contra los rayos UVA y UVB.
Aplicárselo como mínimo
cada dos horas, cada vez que
vaya al agua, sude o se seque.
Riesgos
Hay personas que presentan más riesgo de contraer
cáncer de piel. Entre estos
factores están: tener piel
clara, exposición al sol debido al trabajo o actividades
recreativas, antecedentes de
bronceado en camas solares,
antecedentes de quemaduras
de sol (especialmente durante la infancia), antecedentes
(Infografía, cortesía CDC)
familiares y personales de
cáncer de piel, piel que se
quema o enrojece, le salen
pecas o que en el sol se sien­
te adolorida, cabello rubio

Es humillante cuando no aceptan la póliza del seguro médico
Por José I. Franco
[email protected]
Desde que se me diagnosticó con la enfermedad
de vértigo (mareo), me ha
sido difícil encontrar alguna
clínica especializada que
acepte mi póliza de seguro
médico, por ser de marca
desconocida. OSCAR es su
nombre comercial, por lo que
al parecer en algunas clínicas
no la han tomado en conside­
ración aceptarla.
Bueno en este testimonio
les comunicaré a mis tres
lectores sobre la humillación
que me hicieron pasar dos
chicas empleadas en la recepción de clínica especializada
en problemas del oído, equilibrio, nariz y garganta.
En los momentos de solicitar una cita, de inmediato se
me pidió la tarjeta del seguro
médico, después de revisarla
momentáneamente la recepcionista me pasó a ver a su
compañera, quien también
me pido ver la tarjeta.
“Oye: ¿Alguna vez has visto
esta póliza, tiene un nombre
curioso? Se llama OSCAR”,
le comentó la segunda chica
a su compañero, quien con
sonrisa burlona, le dijo que
no. “Lo siento señor pero no
le podemos dar la cita porque
su póliza no la tenemos en
registro en nuestra gerencia”,
expresó la encargada de verificar el seguro médico de cada
paciente.
Detrás de mí tenía dos
pacientes en espera para
obtener información sobre
sus respectivas citas. La sala
de espera estaba llena, por
lo que logré escuchar algu-
nos pacientes mofarse de mi
situa­ción. En esos momentos,
con mis padecimientos de
ansiedad y mareos, me pude
contener para no explotar y
decirle barbaridades a ambas
empleadas y de paso a los pacientes (la mayoría personas
de la tercera edad).
Sin embargo, recuerdo que
les pregunté a ambas chicas
cuál era el problema de no
tomar mi póliza. Les dije
claramente que su gerencia
general me debería dar una
respuesta, ya que por ella (la
póliza) pago cerca de $600
mensualmente.
“Este seguro no es del plan
Obamacare. Pago bastante al
mes como para que ustedes ni
tan siquiera me puedan dar
una explicación decente y no
hacerlo saber públicamente”,
me expresé ante las encargadas de atender al paciente en
la recepción. No tuve más que
abandonar el edificio, mal
humorado y con todo un gran
coraje, que por poco y me
conduce a sobrepasarme en
mi protesta. Sin embargo, a
los pocos minutos los efectos
del medicamento que tomó
para controlar la ansiedad
comenzaron hacer efecto y
pude calmar mi ira.
La reforma de salud postulada por el primer mandatario para muchas personas
ha sido de gran beneficio y
para otras ha sido toda una
batalla contra el sistema de
aceptación en las pólizas “de
marcas desconocidas” de seguro médico.
Por ser Estados Unidos un
país abierto a la compra y demanda, esto le da el derecho
a que algunas clínicas donde
se practica especialidad en
servicios médicos se nieguen
a darles consulta a personas
que ostentan un seguro médico de marca desconocida.
De acuerdo a Obamacare,
la reforma de salud es para
que todo paciente sea aceptado en clínicas y nosocomios,
sin importar su estado de
salud. Sin embargo, a mí para
nada me sirvió la póliza por la
que pago una buena cantidad.
El sistema de salud no le da
opciones buenas a quienes
carezcan de alguna póliza, ya
que de no tenerla se le estaría
multando en los momentos
de hacer el reporte de sueldo
devengado anualmente.
Su servidor en los últimos
tres años ha cambiado de
póliza de seguro médico en
tres ocasiones.
Primero, estuve afiliado a
un pequeño grupo laboral de
esta casa editorial. Posteriormente se nos acabó el plan
porque se redujo el grupo,
quedándome a la deriva, por
lo cual para no ser “multado”
por Obamacare tuve que
comprar un plan individual
que me costaba cerca de la
mitad de mi salario. No duré
mucho con esa póliza, porque
aparte de que no la usaba me
estaba sacando fuera de mi
presupuesto.
Sin embargo, la dueña de
mis quincenas (mi esposa),
quien es la que lleva al co­
rriente las finanzas, por fin
logró conseguirme la tercera
póliza de seguro médico arri­
ba citada. Su marca tiene
nombre popular (OSCAR)
con sede en la ciudad de la
gran manzana. Esta póliza
la estrené recientemente en
mi primera visita a la sala de
emergencia donde no tuve
ningún problema y también
con mi doctor particular,
donde la recepcionista me
aceptó de buena gana mi
póliza. Al concluir la visita,
cuando iba hacer el pago,
la recepcionista me dijo que
OSCAR pagaba por visita al
médico. Seguidamente fui a
la farmacia para ordenar las
recetas, preguntando a la vez
cuanto sería el costo de las
mismas. El encargado me
dijo que no lo podía hacer de
inmediato, pero cuando fuera
a recoger el medicamento me
iba a sorprender con el pago,
porque OSCAR es una póliza
que cubre un ochenta por
ciento de costos en medicamentos.
La verdad que así fue: en
las tres recetas que me surtie­
ron solo pague la cantidad
de $25.
Al fijarme sobre el ahorro
que tuve en la receta de pastillas para la ansiedad, en
la etiqueta marcaba que me
estaba ahorrando $115.
Por 60 pastillas solo me
tocó pagar cinco dólares, lo
cual me hizo feliz y de paso
contento porque al fin tengo
una póliza que vale la pena
por lo que pago. OSCAR
tiene su slogan. “Con nuestros
planes el cliente paga menos
por sus medicamentos. OSCAR abarata el surtido de
sus recetas médicas”. Hasta
la próxima D.M.

Fighting the Zika
virus – federal funding
delays are intolerable
U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett
Many of us are headed outside to enjoy summer in San
Antonio. But while we’re taking a bite of some delicious
barbecue, we don’t want to
have to worry about what
might be taking a bite out of
us.
With the mosquitos that
carry Zika virus common
throughout Texas, we need to
act now to protect our community from this growing health
threat.
Zika is a mosquito-borne
virus that can result in devastating birth defects. Recent
research suggests that children
born to women infected with
Zika during the first three
months of pregnancy have a
significant risk of developing
microcephaly, severe brain
damage linked to death or
lifelong disabilities.
Two babies have been born
with microcephaly in the United States, and almost 300
more mothers-to-be in the U.S.
and its territories have been infected. No pregnant American
should be living in fear of a
mosquito bite.
There are more than 600
reported cases in the U.S.
contracted through travel, and
1,110 locally acquired cases of
Zika virus in citizens living in
U.S. territories.
Already, 40 Texans have
been infected through international travel or sexual contact
with someone who caught the
virus, including six confirmed
Zika cases in San Antonio.
Many public health experts
warn that we are on the cusp of
an epidemic in the U.S. Mike
Merchant, a Texas A&M insect
specialist, said that “the clock is
ticking right now” as mosquitos start breeding and biting in
the hotter, warmer and wetter
weather. According to experts,
it’s no longer a question of if
the virus will come, but when.
We should not panic, but we
must prepare.
Despite warnings from the
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC), Republicans in Congress have
shown a stunning amount of
indifference toward this looming public health crisis.
I spoke on the House floor
in support of full funding of
the CDC’s plan, yet my colleagues in the majority passed
a bill that provides one out
of every five dollars the CDC
needs. When federal funding
wasn’t promptly delivered,
the CDC was forced to take
money out of Ebola response
and state emergency preparedness funds.
Concerned for our community, I spoke directly with CDC
Director Dr. Tom Frieden to
learn how this reduced funding
would affect plans to protect
us from Zika. He warned that
without proper funding, we
lose the ability to effectively
monitor people infected with
Zika and control the mosquitos around them, putting their
neighbors at risk.
Additionally, without replenishing state grants, Texas will
be less able to respond to other
health emergencies. Texas lost
almost 10 percent of its health
preparedness money, funding
that the state counts on in
floods and other disasters.
This doesn’t need to be a
partisan fight. Mosquitoes
certainly cannot tell the difference between Republicans and
Democrats. Even top Texas
Senate Republicans and Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick
have urged the Texas congressional delegation to act, saying
that Texas desperately needs
federal funding to combat the
Zika virus—particularly after
widespread recent flooding. I
hope their fellow Republicans
in Congress are listening.
This is not something that
Congress should fight piecemeal or that citizens should
be expected to fight with only
DEET and a flyswatter. Vaccines take years to develop.
Mosquito populations take
time to control. If we do not
fund a robust response, we are
headed toward stop-and-go
drug development or no development at all. This is a grave
mistake, one that we cannot let
come back to bite us.
I will continue to advocate
to fully fund what the health
care experts say is required to
fight the spread of Zika and
to help protect Bexar County
families. Given the threat of
the Zika virus, especially to our
now water-logged region, it is
inexcusable not to immediately
provide the resources needed
to prevent, control and cure
this disease.

Free swim lessons offered by
the S.A. Parks Foundation
Special to La Prensa
The San Antonio Parks and
Recreation Department will
offer free swimming lessons
in partnership with the San
Antonio Parks Foundation
to San Antonio children and
adults through a new summer
program.
The goal of “Let’s Swim
SA,” presented by University
Health System and additional
partner Security Service Federal Credit Union, is to teach
2,760 lessons over the course
of six weeks at various City of
San Antonio outdoor pools.
“Our intention is for 2,760
San Antonians to develop the
skills needed to swim safely
and enjoyably this summer.
These are also skills they
can use for the rest of their
lives,” said Noah Almanza,
president and CEO, San
Antonio Parks Foundation.
““According to the CDC,
more than one in five fatal
drowning victims are children
younger than 14. We hope
these lessons will enhance
the quality of life for these
kids and their families, and
we thank San Antonio Parks
and Recreation Department
for providing this service.”
This year, 23 City of San
Antonio outdoor pools are
participating in the program
and registration is currently
taking place until all the slots
are filled. Each pool can accommodate approximately
100 kids.
Sessions are based on a first
come first served basis. Each
session includes six group
lessons. The parent/child
and preschool swim classes
last 30 minutes, while the
school age/adult classes last
45 minutes. The swim lesson
times vary depending on pool
site, with classes taking place
both in the mornings and
evenings.
The three sessions will
take place over the following
dates:
Session I: June 21 - June
30; session II: July 5 - July 14;
Session III: July 19 - July 28.

Santikos Casa Blanca...
(continued from page 1-A)
“Welcome to a new era of
movie-going in San Antonio,”
said David Holmes, CEO of
Santikos Entertainment, at
the ribbon cutting event. The
lobby and auditoriums were
filled with eager guests finally
getting a glimpse of the area’s
newest cinema.
From the walls to the flooring, the building stuns with
modern automated ticket services, large screens, 16 lanes
of bowling, a full-service sports
bar, café and arcade. However,
that’s not all. The theatre is
also home to the largest movie
screen in Texas at 90 feet wide.
“The Santikos Casa Blanca
Theatre is a jewel in the community with its stunning architecture, the best projection and
sound technology available,”
said Holmes. “Moviegoers will
enjoy in-theatre dining with an
upscale menu and recliner and
oversized seating, and Santikos
legendary guest service.”
Adding to the movie magic,
the Casa Blanca is the first 100
percent laser digital projection
theatre in the world using
Barco Laser Projection to illuminate all 16 screens. Laser
projection delivers significantly
better picture clarity, better
color saturation and a three
times brighter image for the
best movie viewing experience
available anywhere.
“Barco Laser is the pinnacle
of cinema projection, and we
are proud to have outfitted
the Casa Blanca with the best
product that the industry has
to offer,” said Holmes. “It’s a
game changer for the moviegoer experience – there is no
bad seat in the house.”
Viewers are immersed in a
realistic, special-effects environment right in their comfortably
padded, reclining seats. For
those who prefer more than
popcorn with their movie, the
theatre also offers excellent
food and drinks in an upscale
atmosphere.
The Casa Blanca, the last theatre designed by the late John
L. Santikos, is projected to be
one of the top 20 theatres in the
country. One million people
are expected to visit the new
entertainment venue annually.
The opening of the new
theatre extends the charitable
legacy of the cinema pioneer
and visionary to the West
Side of the city. As part of the
theatre group now organized
under the John L. Santikos
Charitable Foundation, a fund
of the San Antonio Area Foun-

Santikos Theatres exist for the
sole benefit of the community,
making Santikos Entertainment
the only theatre group in the
world that operates as a social
enterprise.
“You can see a movie anywhere, but every time you see
a movie at a Santikos theatre,
you become a vital part of our
charitable legacy because all of
the economic benefits associated with our operations are
®
reinvested directly back into
the community,” said Holmes.
The net result of dollars spent
on movie tickets, concessions,
dining and other amenities
funnels back into the local
community in the form of donations, sponsorships, grants
and programming that educate,
cure, support, and otherwise
enhance life within our community.
Through the operation of
Santikos theatres, $12 million
will be given to the community in 2016. Over the next 10
years, the fund will generate
$20 million a year or $400,000
a week for the community.

Pet of the week
Four-year-old Brooke is a “Torbie” kitty—that’s a shorthair cat with a tortoiseshell tabby-patterned coat. In short, she’s gorgeous! The warm bronze of
her fur and the striking yellow-orange of her eyes are enough to draw anyone
in—if you could just see her! Brooke is rather fond of hanging out in her cat
condo, and like any newcomer to the San Antonio Humane Society, she’s still
doing a little bit of adjusting. But don’t mistake her timidity for unfriendliness; she still appreciates some sweet talk and affection. Spend a little time
with her and don’t be surprised when she nuzzles your hand asking for more
love. Visit Brooke soon! She’s ready for a devoted and understanding forever home.
Please remember to spay/neuter your pets to help ensure every dog and cat born has a home waiting
for them. San Antonio Humane Society: Connecting Friends for Life.

LA PRENSA DE SAN ANTONIO
Comentarios... El peligro de ser neutrales
Decir que
los periodistas debemos
tomar partido y dejar de
ser neutrales
parecería ir
Jorge Ramos
en contra de
lo que aprendimos en la escuela. Los periodistas, nos dijeron muchos maestros, deben
ser neutrales y objetivos. Pero,
creo que la única forma de
cumplir con nuestra principal
responsabilidad social, que es
cuestionar a los que tienen el
poder, es dejando a un lado la
neutralidad.
No tengo nada en contra de
la objetividad, hay que reflejar
la realidad como es y no como
quisiéramos que fuera. Si es
rojo decimos rojo, y si murie­
ron 15, decimos 15. Lo básico
es responder al qué, dónde,
cuándo, cómo y por qué. El
reto viene después.
¿Cuándo debemos tomar
partido los periodistas y dejar
la neutralidad a un lado? He
identificado seis áreas. No
debemos ser neutrales en casos
de racismo, discriminación,
corrupción, mentiras públicas, dictaduras y violaciones
a los derechos humanos. No
podemos tratar igual a un
dictador que a una víctima de
su dictadura. No debe ser lo
mismo entrevistar a Donald
Trump, que hizo comentarios
racistas sobre mexicanos y
musulmanes, e insultó pública-
mente a varias mujeres, que a
las personas que ofendió. Dar
los dos puntos de vista para
equilibrar la información no
nos lleva necesariamente a la
verdad.
Los mejores ejemplos de
periodismo que tenemos en
Estados Unidos ocurrieron
cuando los reporteros tomaron
partido: los periodistas del
Washington Post que obligan
al presidente Richard Nixon a
renunciar; la postura de Walter Cronkite contra la guerra
de Vietnam; y los reporteros
del Boston Globe contra los
sacerdotes pedófilos (y cuyo
caso se explora en la película
‘Spotlight’). Hay muchos más.
La neutralidad no es buena
compañía. Siempre debemos
tomar partido, dijo Elie Wiesel, el escritor y sobreviviente
del Holocausto en su discurso
después de haber aceptado
el Premio Nobel de la Paz en
1986. La neutralidad ayuda al
opresor, nunca a la víctima.
El silencio alienta al atormentador, nunca al atormentado.
Siguiendo esta idea, nos
corresponde a los periodistas
denunciar la dictadura cubana,
los presos políticos en Venezue­
la, la corrupción en Brasil, las
mentiras oficiales de los 43
desaparecidos de Ayotzinapa
en México y las expresiones
racistas de la campaña electoral
en Estados Unidos.
La idea de que los periodistas nunca puedan tomar una
posición y sonar las alarmas,
especialmente cuando tienes
una amenaza y un peligro
como el de Donald Trump, es
realmente una idea pervertida
y corrompida del periodismo,
me dijo en una entrevista Glenn
Greenwald, quien colaboró
con Edward Snowden para
filtrar los documentos secretos
de la dependencia de seguridad
nacional de Estados Unidos.
Algunas entrevistas con Trump
donde no se le cuestionan sus
opiniones prejuiciadas y sus
comentarios sexistas han sido
verdaderamente vergonzosas.
Lo mismo pasa con los abusos y la represión del régimen
autoritario de Nicolás Maduro
en Venezuela. No es posible la
neutralidad moral cuando hay
presos políticos y la democracia no está funcionando, dijo
sobre Venezuela Luis Almagro,
el secretario general de la
Organización de los Estados
Americanos. No denunciar
una injusticia, seas o no perio­
dista, nos podría convertir en
cómplices.
Si eres neutral con respecto a
una injusticia, estás escogiendo
el lado del opresor, dijo alguna
vez Desmond Tutu, quien
luchó junto con Nelson Mandela para terminar con el sistema
del apartheid en Sudáfrica. Si
un elefante tiene su pata en la
cola de un ratón y tú dices que
eres neutral, el ratón no va a
apreciar tu neutralidad.
Los periodistas, en casos muy
específicos, debemos tomar
partido. Ojo, esto no significa
ser del partido Demócrata o
del Republicano. Esto significa
ser de una independencia feroz
y hacer preguntas duras, incómodas, a todos. Si no tomamos
partido, no es periodismo, escribió el profesor Jeff Jarvis en
su libro Geeks Bearing Gifts:
Imagining New Futures for
News. Todo nuevo periodista
debe leerlo.
El oficio del periodista no
es ser una grabadora y solo
repetir lo que nos dicen. Yo
no me siento, ni lograré jamás
sentirme, un frío registrador de
lo que escucho y veo, escribió
la periodista italiana Oriana
Fallaci en su libro, “Entrevista
con La Historia”. Sobre toda
experiencia profesional dejo
jirones del alma.
Cómo sugirió alguna vez
Martin Luther King, el proble­
ma no son las acciones violentas de los malos, sino el apabu­
llante silencio e indiferencia de
la gente buena. El verdadero
riesgo de ser neutrales es creer
que estamos haciendo nuestro
trabajo periodístico cuando, en
verdad, solo ayudamos a que
alguien abuse de su poder. Y
eso no es periodismo.

Just a Thought: remembering Father Eddie Bernal
San Antonio is still
mourning
the passing
of one of its
finest priests
and civic
Steve Walker leaders, Father Edward
“Eddie” Bernal.
“Father Eddie,” as he was
affectionately known to everyone, suffered a fatal heart attack and passed away on May
29 at the age of 66.
He attended St. Ann’s Catholic School, St. Paul’s Catholic School, Holy Cross High
School, Jefferson High School,
St. Mary’s University and the
Oblate School of Theology.
Ordained in 1987, he served
as Pastor of St. Matthews, St.
John Berchmans, St. Leo’s
and St. Benedict’s Catholic
Churches. His last 13 years
were at St. Benedict’s.
Since 2007, I have been taking his photo at various events
throughout San Antonio. In
all that time, every time I encountered him, he always had
a smile on his face and was
funny, jovial and uplifting.
On every encounter, I would
make sure I mentioned to him
that, “since you know God
personally, please put in a
good word for me.” We would
laugh as he promised he would
certainly do so. The last time
I saw him April 21 at a Fiesta
event, I started to remind him
to put in a good word with
God for me, and before I could
actually say it, he interjected,
“I know, I got you covered,”
laughing as he said it. He was
that kind of guy.
When I was about to take
his photo at those events, he
would normally say, “Wait,
let me fix my collar.” Again
we would have a good laugh.
He also graciously posed with
others at those events – no
pretentiousness whatsoever.
On June 2, I attended the
first of two rosaries for Father
Eddie at St. Benedict’s. I got
there a little late, and it took
me some time to find a parking
spot. There were cars parked
up and down the street. It was
almost nearly impossible, but I
did find a slot two blocks away.
I ran in to take photos and
forgot my umbrella. The crowd
was overwhelming. The line of
mourners to attend the rosary
was out into the parking lot,
and they were pushing to get
in with the pending rain. The
church was packed.
The crowd was estimated
to be over 600 people! You
couldn’t move. I made it to
the balcony where the various
media outlets were stationed.
Thankfully, I did have my La
Prensa pass with me. When I
left the rosary, a gracious woman offered me her umbrella as I
tried to make it to my car. Even
with the umbrella, I still got
soaked from the downpour.
On June 3, I attended St.
John Berchman’s rosary for
Father Eddie; and again, it was
packed with an estimated 500
plus mourners! People were
lining the back of the church.
Fortunately, there was no rain.
Saturday, June 4 was overwhelming. An estimated 1,700
plus filled the church – the cry
room and every possible corner or wall to stand by to participate. Archbishop Gustavo
Garcia-Siller led the service
with about 100 priests. Judges,
commissioners, College Board
members, former City Council
members and even State Senator José Menéndez attended.
Obviously, Father Eddie is
truly loved by not only his
parishioners, but San Antonio
as a whole. He will be sorely
missed. Rest in peace, “Father
Eddie.”
Anyway, as always, what I
write is “Just a Thought.”
Steve Walker is a Vietnam
Veteran, former Journalist
and Justice of the Peace.
Cuando el cielo se hace pedazos
Por Humberto Caspa
El día martes fue un verdadero “supermartes” para
las mujeres. Después de su
derrota ante Barack Obama
en las primarias de 2008,
Hillary Rodham Clinton
reconoció que el destino le
fue un tanto indiferente a las
mujeres norteamericanas.
Cuando aceptó su de­rrota
ante el entonces senador
Barack Obama, su voz estremeció el entorno político
norteamericano. No se resignó o aceptó una derrota
total. Nos dijo que lo mejor
estaba por llegar; era cuestión
de tiempo para que el cielo
se desplomara y las mujeres
vuelvan a encontrar la brújula
que las condujera a un futuro
propicio.
“A pesar de que esta vez
no pudimos destrozar el más
alto y más sólido cielo raso
de cristal, hoy lo dejamos con
18 millones de rajaduras”,
dijo ese día en un emocional
discurso que volvió a resonar
hoy en todos los rincones
del país. Los días lúgubres,
que cegaban el sendero de
la igualdad de los sexos y el
género se tornaron en días
luminosos.
Como reconoció en su discurso del martes, este logro
histórico de ser la candidata
de los demócratas no corres­
ponde al trabajo de una sola
persona o de las personas que
la apoyaron en el presente
proceso electoral, sino que ha
sido un tarea mancomunada
de muchísimos años, de muchas generaciones de mujeres
que, desde el inicio mismo de
la República, han luchado y
han dado la vida por alcanzar
la igualdad en diversos ámbitos de la sociedad.
Irónicamente, antes de que
las mujeres pudieran ejercer
su derecho al voto, Jeannette Rankin, republicana
del estado de Montana, fue la
primera mujer de ser elegida
como representante en la
Cámara Baja del Congreso
en 1916.
El 4 de junio de 1919, la
Enmienda 19, la cual permitió a las mujeres sufragar
su voto en elecciones nacionales y locales, fue aprobada
por el Congreso. Fue una
lucha intensa contra grupos
e individuos que, en esos
tiempos, todavía sentían que
las mujeres eran ciudadanas
de segunda clase.
El último estado en aprobar la Enmienda 19 fue Tennessee. Con su rectificación
se daba cumplimiento a uno
de los requisitos más difíciles
en un proceso de enmienda
constitucional. El cuerpo
legislativo de 3/4 de los estados tiene que rectificar el
proyecto federal de enmienda. Es decir, aparte de una
aprobación en el Congreso,
38 de los 50 estados tienen
que dar su visto bueno.
En 1932 se produjo otro
logro importante para las
mujeres. Hattie Caraway fue
elegida al Senado Federal
por el estado de Arkansas.
Más después, durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, las
mujeres empezaron a tomar
parte de mercado laboral y
se convirtieron en el pulmón
de las diversas fábricas y
ensambladoras. A inicios de
la guerra hubo alrededor de
12 millones de mujeres en
el mercado laboral. Cuando
terminó la guerra, el número
de trabajadoras incrementó a
18 millones.
En la década de 1950, las
mujeres empezaron a movilizarse por los derechos civiles.
En diciembre de 1955, la
afroamericana Rosa Parks rehusó cederle su asiento a una
persona de origen europeoamericano en un bus de
Montgomery, Alabama. Este
hecho produjo el movimiento
civil contra la discriminación
y la segregación liderado por
Martin Luther King.
Tendríamos que escribir
hoja tras hoja para resaltar
tantos logros alcanzados
por tantas mujeres. Hillary
tiene razón. Darle crédito a
una persona por todo lo que
ocurre hoy es ignorar una
historia llena de logros. Sin
embargo, Hillary Clinton se
merece un reconocimiento
por su tenacidad, su trabajo, su fe en el cambio y
su enorme sueño de lograr
la ansiada igualdad de las
mujeres.

COMMENTARY...
Calendario de la comunidad
PEDRO FRIEDEBERG: PRAISE OF FOLLY— Ruiz-Healy
Art is pleased to present “Pedro Friedeberg: Praise of Folly.”
The exhibition will feature an eclectic mix of Pedro Friedeberg’s art across a fairly broad range of media including: hand
woven carpets, paintings, his iconic hand-chairs, fantastical
sculptures and prints. A catalogue will be available with an
essay by Dan Cameron. One of the master illusionists of late
20th century art, Pedro Friedeberg is enjoying something of a
resurgent moment in the second decade of the 21st century.
Ever since the 2009 retrospective of his work at the Palacio de
Bellas Artes in Mexico City coincided one year later with the
definitive critical study on him, authored by James Oles, there
has been a noticeable uptick in international critical, collector
and museum attention toward his unique oeuvre. Visit www.
ruizhealyart.com for more details. Exhibit will take place until
June 18 at Ruiz-Healy Art, 201-A East Olmos Dr.
LINDA PACE FOUNDATION PRESENTS: RIVANE
NEUENSCHWANDER-SECONDARY STORIES— This
spring, the Linda Pace Foundation presents the Texas debut
of “Secondary Stories,” a room-sized installation by Brazilian
artist Rivane Neuenschwander, who has become widely regarded for her often ephemeral work that explores narratives
about language, nature, social interactions and the passing of
time. Showcasing “Secondary Stories” as well as three video
installation works, the exhibition opens at SPACE, the public
gallery of the Linda Pace Foundation. The exhibit will be on
view through July 29, 2017 at Linda Pace Foundation, 111
Camp St.
CONEY ISLAND AT THE MCNAY— The exhibition explores and celebrates Coney Island, the most iconic, uniquely
American Amusement Park in the United States, which has
served as national cultural symbol inspiring artists, musicians, novelists, poets and filmmakers. From Coney Island’s
beginning as a watering hole for the wealthy, through its
transformation into an entertainment mecca for the masses, to
the closing of Astroland Amusement Park following decades
of urban decline, this first-of-its-kind exhibition uses visual
art as a lens to explore 150 years of Coney Island. For more
information, visit www.mcnayart.org. The exhibition will be
on display until Sept. 11 at the McNay Art Museum, 600 N.
New Braunfels Ave.

SIDEWALK COST SHARING PROGRAM — The City of
San Antonio has a new pilot program that will share the costs
of sidewalk repairs. The cost share that residents are required
to provide will range from 30-50 percent of the cost to replace
the sidewalk. The share that residents need to provide will
depend on their residential location. If the property is located
in a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) area, as
designated by the Federal Government, residents may qualify
for the City paying 70 percent of the total cost of repair and
funds are limited. For more information, call 311 for details.

Summer Nutrition Program,” SAISD campuses hosting summer
school programs will offer anyone 18 years old and younger
one breakfast and one lunch free of charge, regardless of ability
to pay. Breakfast will be served primarily from 7:30 – 8:30
a.m. and lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
(depending upon location). The program will run June 7
through Aug. 5 (depending upon location) at the sites listed

Moving a person with Alzheimer’s
When an individual with
Alzheimer’s disease can no longer live alone, alternative care
arrangements must be made to
ensure the individual’s safety:
• The time when an individual with dementia can no
longer live alone represents a
turning point in the lives of
both the individuals and their
loved ones.
• After considering emotional and financial issues, some
families decide that moving
the person with Alzheimer’s
disease into a loved one’s home
offers the best solution.
Strategies for caregiver
to cope with moving issues
acknowledging the impact
on the household
• If the person with Alzheimer’s is moving into a family situation, the adults and children
should have open discussions
about why the move is necessary and the impact of having
a person with confusion and
memory problems living in
their home.
• The noise and activity level
of young children or teenagers
may cause increased stimulation and confusion in the individual with dementia.
• Certain behaviors of a
person with Alzheimer’s may
puzzle or alarm young children.
• Caregiving can take time
away from family and leisure
activities and increase stress
in the caregiver’s relationship
with a significant other.
Discussing the move with
the person who has dementia
• Try to include the individual with Alzheimer’s in the
decision-making process, but
avoid providing an overwhelming number of details. Manageable kinds of involvement
could include letting the person
choose which favored items—
such as pictures, blankets, pil-
lows, sports or craft items—to
take to the new home.
• Despite the caregiver’s best
efforts, dementia may limit the
affected individual’s ability to
participate in the decision. Impaired judgment and reasoning
may prevent an understanding
of why the move is necessary.
• The person with Alzheimer’s may agree to the move in
one conversation then refuse
to move during the next discussion.
• The caregiver must proceed
with plans to move regardless
of whether the person is willing or able to participate in the
decision. Once safety concerns
about the person’s remaining
alone have been identified, the
caregiver must take responsibility for ensuring that the affected
individual moves to a safer
environment.
• The person’s physician
may be willing to write down
the need to move as a “prescrip-
tion” on a prescription form,
communicating the idea that
the move is the medically responsible and necessary thing
to do at this time.
The impact of moving on
the person with dementia
Moving is a stressful and
difficult decision for anyone
to make — dementia complicates a process that is already
acknowledged as one of life’s
most challenging events. The
person with dementia may
experience a profound sense of
loss when having to move out
of his or her home.
• The move forces the person
to confront the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s and its implications
for health and independence.
• The person has to give up
a place that may hold many
memories.
• The person loses the sense
of safety and familiarity of
being in a place where he or
she knows all the rooms and
landmarks.
Helping the person adjust
to the new living arrangement
• Stress the positive aspects
of the move — tell the person
with dementia that you are
glad that he or she will be
living with you because you
can spend more time together.
Whenever possible, place less
emphasis on the person’s mental state and safety issues.
• The unfamiliarity of the
new environment may make
the person with Alzheimer’s
more confused and may benefit
from increased assistance and
patience.
• Try to spend extra time
with the person to help him or
her adjust to the new environment.
• Label the main rooms —
such as the bathroom, bedroom and kitchen — with largeprint, brightly colored signs
to help the person become
oriented to the new layout.
• Never threaten to move a
person with dementia in an
attempt to change his or her
behavior, as in, “I’m going to
put you in a nursing home if
you don’t behave better.”

Mayor Taylor announces plans for major park acquisition
Special to La Prensa
Standing on a bluff overlooking rugged ranchland,
Mayor Ivy R. Taylor announced this week an agreement to purchase 204 of acres
green space and parkland, the
largest project of its kind since
Hardberger Park in 2007.
The Classen-Steubing family
has owned the property for
several generations. It’s one
of the last major, undeveloped parcels of land in North
San Antonio. The family has
agreed to sell 204 acres of
their property, all of it over
the sensitive Edwards Aquifer
recharge zone, to the City.
The land, a green oasis
surrounded by dense subdivisions and a stone quarry,
is located Northwest of the
Loop1604-U.S. 281 intersection.
“The acquisition would
keep the land out of residential development. That
means that as many as 3,500
houses and apartment units
that could have been built
on the property wouldn’t
be,” Mayor Taylor said. “The
purchase would protect San
Antonio’s largest source of
drinking water, the area’s
roadways and the North East
Independent School District
from the pressure of so much
new development.
“This would be a great
opportunity for the City of
San Antonio,” Mayor Taylor
said. “It’s rare that this much
pristine land is available on
the North Side, directly over
the recharge zone. With this
acquisition, we are protecting the Edwards Aquifer and
ensuring that most of this
beautiful, rugged green space
remains untouched for generations to come.”
The City also plans to build
baseball and soccer fields and
hike-and-bike trails on a portion of the property.
The two-part acquisition
will total $10.1 million.
The Conservation Advisory Board, which administers
Prop 1 funds for the protection of the Edwards Aquifer,
voted April 27 to recommend
dedicating $5.3 million to the
purchase of 165.3 acres of
the property. The City would
contribute another $1 million
in funds from the Hardy Oak
extension project in District 9.
City Council is expected to
vote June 16 on the acquisition.
The purchase of the remaining 39 acres, at a cost of $3.8
million, could be part of the
2017 bond package. This
portion of the property would
eventually be developed into
six soccer fields and baseball
diamonds.
“This is a landmark project
for the City of San Antonio,”
District 9 City Councilman
Joe Krier said. “The Steubing
property would address some
of our most widely-held concerns, including protecting the
aquifer and providing sport
fields to keep our children active and healthy.
“I am grateful to the Classen-Steubing family. They
could have gotten a higher
price for the property from
a developer, but they had a
vision of their property becoming one of San Antonio’s
great open spaces. I also want
to thank City Manager Sheryl
Sculley and her staff — especially Parks and Recreation
Director Xavier Urrutia and
Deputy City Manager Peter
Zanoni — for working so
closely with the family and
the District 9 office over the
past year.”
The family has agreed to sell
the 204 acres at the property’s
appraised value. The private
nonprofit Nature Conservancy
commissioned the appraisal
using City funds.
The Planning Commission
voted in favor of the project
on May 25.
“We’ve significantly in-
creased the amount of open
space available to residents
over the past decade, but
an opportunity of this size
and magnitude is rare,” City
Manager Sheryl Sculley said.
“With Bond Committee, City
Council and voter approval of
the 2017 Bond Program, this
acquisition would allow us to
protect a beautiful area inside
the City that will directly benefit all San Antonians through
green space, aquifer protection and new parkland.”

LA PRENSA DE SAN ANTONIO
SAFC advances to 4th round
of U.S. Open Cup after 2-1
victory over Des Moines
Special to La Prensa
San Antonio FC came from
behind to beat the Des Moines
Menace (PDL) 2-1 in the third
round of the Lamar Hunt U.S.
Open Cup at Valley Stadium.
The goals came from defender
Sam McBride and forward
Jacques Francois in the second
half.
“Firstly, I thought Des Moines
fought very hard during the
game,” said SAFC head coach
Darren Powell. “I couldn’t be
more proud of our guys by
coming from behind to win
the game shows good resilience
and good urgency from the
players, which we need to take
into our match at the weekend.”
The first half of the match remained scoreless despite quality
chances from both teams. The
Menace opened the scoring 15
minutes into the second half
when midfielder Christian Flath
beat SAFC goalkeeper Josh
Ford with a direct kick from just
outside the box.
SAFC defender McBride
earned the equalizer in the
72nd minute with a header
following a set piece from
Carlos Alvarez. The goal was
McBride’s first for San Antonio
in the defender’s debut professional season.
“The game was hectic, but I
think we kept our heads,” said
McBride. “After their first goal,
we got control of the game
again and took our chances,
so it’s good to come here and
get a win.”
Nearly 10 minutes later,
forward Jacques Francois capitalized on a cross from Greg
Cochrane to earn the 2-1 lead.
The Haitian has scored three
goals and tallied one assist in
his two Open Cup appearances
so far this season.
Menace second-half substitute Elvir Ibisevic was sent off
late in the match for an errant
elbow to face of SAFC defender
Bobby Moseley. San Antonio
FC now progress to the fourth
round of the tournament, where
they will travel to Houston
to face the Houston Dynamo
(MLS). The Dynamo currently
sits in last place of the MLS
Western Conference.

Broncos de Reynosa SA
doblegaron a Colt 45
En partido de revancha (final
del playoff invernal), los Broncos de Reynosa SA, propiedad
de los esposos Linda y Roberto
Garza, con su manager Rudy
Barrientez y coaches Tomás Muñoz y Efraín Cruz Franco, cele­
braron la victoria con pizarra de

Leonard Gates. Y por Broncos,
el exprofesional Luis Alfonso
Velázquez, lanzó toda la ruta.
El primera base Kelly Skeen,

ubicó la pizarra 5-3, lo cual
le dio confianza a Velázquez
para no ceder terreno y guiar al
campeón (temporada invernal)
a su primera victoria de la temporada dedicada al beisbolista
Gabriel “La Puntada” Ruiz.
“Jugamos buena defensiva y
ofensiva. El picheo de Velázquez
(Chorejas) estuvo a la altura del
partido. El cuadro le ayudó con
cuatro doble matanzas y efectivo
bateo”, dijo Barrientez.
El equipo O’s propinó paliza
de 14 a 3 carreras al ex invicto Cachorros de Nava, con
bateo de César Muñoz 4-2, José
Tomás Ortiz 4-3 y Charlie Zapata de 4-2 con par de dobletes.
Cazadores noquearon 19 a 1
a los Sultanes, con victoria para
Hugo Méndez, destacando el
bateo del campo corto dominicano Ezequiel Pérez que conectó
cuadrangular con un compañero
en base, bateando 6-3. Pérez
del 2003 al 2005 jugó para la
organización Tigres de Detroit
en el béisbol de Ligas Menores.
“Estoy contento porque Cazadores me han dado la oportuni-
dad de seguir jugando béisbol
en la categoría veteranos”, dijo
Pérez.

Nao restaurant presents delightful lunch menu
By Christina Acosta
[email protected]
Price Range: $$
Nao Latin Gastro Bar is providing a new and savory lunch
menu with the help of students
from The Culinary Institute of
America.
In order to perfect the lunch
menu, the restaurant took the
time to create a learning environment for students, where they
learned how create innovative
dishes and how to offer a memorable dining experience. With
the help of Chef/Instructor Justin Ward, the students were able
to cultivate the South American
culture with new dishes including Jicama Tacos and Crème de
Tequila Tres Leches.
“The process of creating the
menu included developing the
recipes, testing the recipes and
designing the plate,” Chef Ward
told La Prensa. “We utilize what
is in season and what is obvious to the extent. For example,
when fish is in season, we start
cutting up, seasoning and learning how we can be set apart
from other restaurants, but also
to stay within the guidelines
of the American food. We use
a contemporary twist on the
menu.”
La Prensa recently stopped by
to try the new lunch menu Nao
has to offer, and I must admit,
I have never bit into so many
juicy, tender, light and colorful
items in one menu. The best part
Nao Latin Gastro Bar has unveiled a lunch featuring Jicama Tacos, Salad Bowl, Grilled
Octopus and Créme de Tequila de Tres Leches. (Photo, Christina Acosta)
of the restaurant was entering
and being greeted by students
happily waiting for our presence. It is nice when a restaurant
adds a personal touch.
As we sat down, the Grilled
Octopus came to welcome us.
With botija olives, baby arugula,
purple potatoes, smoked lemon
and roasted garlic mayo, you
can taste the citrus and smoke
blended together – an ideal
choice for those who enjoy a
kick to their fish.
Then, an old favorite, Jicama
Tacos, came to our table; and
with the green mango slaw,
avocado and chamoy sauce, you
taste a raw, crunchy taco that
would remind many of the little
stands in Mexico.
The best thing to try on the
menu is the Sea Scallop Tostones. With a pineapple, radish,
orange and cilantro emulsion,
you get sweet and tenderness
all in one bite.
The restaurant also added
a seasonal Salad Bowl with
mixed green, almonds, variety
of fruits and orange-cumin vinaigrette. This salad is worth every
penny as you bite into greens
and charred beets, making it a
smoked salad.
Desserts were also astonishing when you taste a hint of
Tequila in your Créme de Tequila Tres Leches cake or have
a student serve tableside vanilla
bean ice cream with toppings for
you to choose from. It was a dining experience that gave lunch
a cordial way of doing things
with the help of the staff and
the colorful food on the menu.
“I think a lot of people want
to know where their food comes
from, what ingredients we use
and how it is prepared,” said
Stephany Vargas, CIA student.
“There is a lot of flavor involved;
there is a lot of texture, colors
and seafood involved in giving the dishes a character for
customers.”
The lunch menu is offered
Monday through Friday from
11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Nao
Latin Gastro Bar, located at
312 Pkwy., also continues to
provide professionally staffed
dinner service, helmed by Executive Chef Zach Garza. For more

“Zootopia”, una
fábula utópica en 3-D
Por Adda Montalvo
[email protected]
“Zootopia” llegó ya a DVD,
Blu-ray y Digital HD. La más
reciente de las películas de
animales animados de Disney
es como una gran fábula, estilo
Esopo, en una ciudad utópica:
donde los animales conviven
–humanizados- en armonía
en barrios a su medida de su
hábitat: tundra, bosque tropical,
desierto, sabana. Es también la
historia de Judy Hopps, una
conejita decidida a ser la primera oficial de policía conejo,
quien debe enfrentarse a los
estereotipos y prejuicios de los
demás (y sus propios compañeros de trabajo por ser chica
y coneja). Para probarse a sí
misma debe resolver la extraña
desaparición de una nutria y un
misterio “salvaje”. Judy contará
con la ayuda de un zorro de
nombre Nick, quien con su
natural astucia, la sacará de sus
casillas y le probará que aun
con buena intención también
ella alberga prejuicios. Y los
prejuicios, expresados a través
de un cuento de animales, es
lo que hacen a “Zootopia” una
película para todas las edades.
Hay momentos que en verdad
“duele” cómo los prejuicios
pueden afectar las relación entre seres de diferentes colores,
pelambres, tamaños, culturas,
En “Zootopia” se cumplen los sueños, no sin dificultades.

pero eso no quiere decir que
“Zootopia” es una historia triste,
no, es Disney. Sin embargo, al
revisar los materiales extra es interesante saber que al principio
del proyecto era Nick, el zorro,
el personaje principal, el cual
portaba un collar (como perro)
para apaciguar su instinto depredador. De haber seguido esta
línea, la historia de “Zootopia”
hubiera sido mucho más oscura,
y no brillante y positiva, al ritmo
de una vibrante canción de empoderamiento personal cantada
por Shakira. Si le gusta el mundo
de los animales animados, los
materiales extra le contarán
cómo Disney ha evolucionado
este género a través de los años.

San Antonio también es
hospitalario con las mariposas

Turistas van, turistas vienen.
Por eso San Antonio tiene
muchos buenos hoteles, pero
también, por su ubicación al
sur de Texas, también es un
lugar perfecto para hospedar a
las mariposas monarca durante
su viaje de norte a sur. Y si hay
un lugar perfecto para observar
a este maravilloso insecto ese
es el Jardín Botánico (San Antonio Botanical Garden, 555
Funston PL, San Antonio TX,
78209).
Y ahora también se puede
aprender qué flores le atraen
más a las monarcas y otras
mariposas gracias a su nueva
exhibición educativa “Winged
Wonders” (Maravillas Aladas).
“Winged Wonders” es una
exhibición a lo largo del jardín
en la cual las plantas preferidas
por las mariposas, orugas y
los colibríes para alimentarse
presentan un marcador –similar a su forma anatómica– con
su respectivo nombre para
identificarlas.
Por ejemplo, las mariposas
adultas se sienten atraídas por
flores planas, apiñadas o con
tubos cortos de color púrpura,
rojo, amarillo o naranja. Entre
ellas, girasoles, margaritas,
coreopsis, lantana, aster, entre
otras.

ser algodoncillo (milkweed)
para las mariposas monarca,
repollo para la Cabbage Butterfly, o Willow/Poplar para

En un área del jardín, cercana a la entrada, se concentran varias de estas plantas.
Asimismo, también se encuentran allí las plantas que atraen
a los colibríes: Columbine,
Strawberry Floxglove, Bee
Balm y Cardinal Flower, por
ejemplo, por sus nombres en
inglés.
Durante la apertura de esta
exhibición botánica –educativa, el pasado sábado padres

pudieron observar mariposas

flores, participaron en actividades en donde especialistas
del jardín hablaron sobre esas
“maravillas aladas” y los niños
recibieron bolsas de semillas

mariposas para iniciar su propio jardín.

artists, staff, interns, contractors and artist collaborators
who helped shape Artpace
into the dynamic organization
it is today, from its founding
in 1995.
The selection, “Faces of
Artpace,” is not all-inclusive
of every person who has been
formally involved with Artpace. The group is limited to
people who were included in
Samandari’s original project,
“San Antonio Faces of Art.”
Several current Artpace staff
members were photographed
for Samandari’s original project, “San Antonio Faces of Art,”
which spurred the idea to look
through all 244 faces included
in the original project and present a selection for a separate
exhibition, “Faces of Artpace.”
The portraits will be printed
in various scales—large (35” x
47”), medium (17” x 20”), and
small (8.5” x 11”).
Born in 1960 in Tehran,
Iran, Samandari immigrated
to the United States in 1978
where he has made San Antonio, Texas his home. Samandari is a versatile artist
working with photographic
and digital imaging processes
that investigate the human
form in relation to space and
the intangible forces of time,
place and history.
Samandari teaches photography at the Southwest School
of Art and owns Magical Realism Studio, located in the Blue
Star Art Complex. Samandari’s
work is in the permanent collections at the San Antonio
Museum of Art and the University of Texas at San Antonio,
along with numerous private
collections.

SACVB launches online survey
program to enhance city experience
Special to La Prensa
The San Antonio Convention and Visitors Bureau
(SACVB) is launching a new
partner program called Experience Dedicated Destination
(EDD). This on-going online
survey program helps San
Antonio find out how we’re
doing in the eyes of visitors –
now and over time.
San Antonio is the fourth
city in the U.S. to become
accredited to strategically
measure the experience visitors have in our destination,
which will help set us apart
on the national stage.
This research and consumer
standards-based program is
based on a quick, one-minute
survey at http://mysananto-
nioexperience.com/. Visitors,
and even locals, are served
up five short questions about
their San Antonio experience.
With 32.5 million visitors,
spending $13.4 billion annually in San Antonio, the new
EDD program is just one more
way we can ensure visitors are
having a high quality experience and encourage them to
return.
“We’re excited to be one of
the first cities in the country to
launch the Experience Dedicated Destination (EDD) program,” said Casandra Matej,
executive director of the San
Antonio Convention and Visitors Bureau. “This program
works hand in hand with our
Certified Tourism Ambassador program to continually
gauge and enhance the visitor
experience in San Antonio.”
The EDD survey covers
various sectors of the tourism
industry including attractions,
lodging, restaurants, local
government/civic organizations, venues/facilities and
transportation.
Partners in these sectors
will meet quarterly to stay up
to date on progress regarding
the destination’s overall plan
and findings from the ongoing
consumer data and research.
Each sector will hold strategic
conversations to help determine how they can best help
meet the destination’s visitorcentric objectives.

La población de las mariposas monarca ha declinado

años. Los científicos atribuyen
esto a la pérdida de su hábitat. Por lo tanto, con esta

plantas nativas pueden plantar
en sus respectivos jardines
para hospedar a las mariposas monarca, u otro tipo de

Tyson was born and raised
in New York City where he was
educated in the public schools
clear through his graduation
from the Bronx High School
of Science. Tyson went on to
earn his bachelor’s degree in
physics from Harvard and his
doctorate in astrophysics from
Columbia.
Tyson’s professional research interests are broad, but
include star formation, exploding stars, dwarf galaxies and
the structure of our Milky Way.
In 2001, Tyson was appointed by President Bush to
serve on a 12-member commission that studied the future
of the U.S. aerospace industry.
The final report was published
in 2002 and contained recommendations (for Congress
and for the major agencies of
the government) that would
promote a thriving future of
transportation, space exploration and national security.
In 2004, Tyson was once
again appointed by President
Bush to serve on a nine-member commission on the Implementation of the United States
Space Exploration Policy,
dubbed the Moon, Mars, and
Beyond commission.
This group navigated a path
by which the new space vision
can become a successful part of
the American agenda. And in
2006, the head of NASA appointed Tyson to serve on its
prestigious advisory council,
which will help guide NASA
through its perennial need to
fit its ambitious vision into its
restricted budget.
In addition to dozens of professional publications, Dr. Tyson has written and continues
to write for the public. From
1995 to 2005, Tyson was a
monthly essayist for Natural
History magazine under the
title Universe.
And among Tyson’s 10
books is his memoir “The Sky
is Not the Limit: Adventures
of an Urban Astrophysicist;”
and “Origins: Fourteen Billion
Years of Cosmic Evolution,”
co-written with Donald Goldsmith. “Origins” is the companion book to the PBS-NOVA
4-part mini-series “Origins,”
in which Tyson served as oncamera host. The program
premiered on Sept. 28 and
29, 2004.
Two of Tyson’s recent books
are the playful and informative
“Death By Black Hole” and
“Other Cosmic Quandaries,”
which was a New York Times
bestseller, and “The Pluto Files:
The Rise and Fall of America’s
Favorite Planet,” chronicling
his experience at the center of
the controversy over Pluto’s
planetary status. The PBS/
NOVA documentary “The Pluto Files”, based on the book,
premiered in March 2010.
For five seasons, beginning
in the fall of 2006, Tyson appeared as the on-camera host
of PBS-NOVA’s spinoff program “NOVA ScienceNOW,”
which is an accessible look at
the frontier of all the science
that shapes the understanding
of our place in the universe.
During the summer of 2009,
Tyson identified a stable of
professional standup comedians to assist his effort in
bringing science to commercial
radio with the NSF-funded
pilot program “StarTalk.” Now
also a popular podcast, and
a limited-run television series
on the National Geographic
Channel, “StarTalk” combines
celebrity guests with informative yet playful banter. The target audience is all those people
who never thought they would,
or could, like science.
In its first year on television,
it was nominated for a “Best
Informational Programming”
Emmy.
Tyson is the recipient of 19
honorary doctorates and the
NASA Distinguished Public
Service Medal, the highest
award given by NASA to a

Telemundo kicks off
production of ‘La Doña’
Special to la Prensa
Telemnundo confirmed the
production kickoff of its new
original production “La Doña,”
starring Aracely Arámbula,
David Chocarro, Danna Paola
and Rebecca Jones.
“La Doña” is inspired by the
classic novel “Doña Bárbara,”
by Rómulo Gallegos, and was
written and adapted by José
Vicente Spataro, directed by
Carlos Villegas, and produced
by Mariana Iskandarani and
Gabriela Valentan.
“La Doña” is a tale of revenge, ambition and seduction
revolving around “Altagracia”
(Arámbula), an elegant, beautiful and successful woman who
runs a construction empire
and enjoys widespread respect
in society. A series of major
traumas early in life left their
mark on Altagracia and made
her the implacable “Doña” she
is today.
“Gallegos’ novel has been
adapted successfully for film
and television before, but what
makes this new Telemundo version different is the story, set
in modern times” commented
Luis Silberwasser, president
of Telemundo Network. “Audiences are increasingly demanding more realism in our
telenovelas, and ‘La Doña’
addresses contemporary issues
through believable characters
with whom viewers can identify
with. Violence against women,
corruption in politics and business, and the economic crisis
many countries in the region
are experiencing are just some
of the topics that anchor this
story in current times.”
Despite her considerable
success, Altagracia is missing
something in her life: true
love, which she discovers for
the first time when she meets
Saúl (Chocarro), an attorney
who defends the victims of
gender violence and all young
women fighting for a way out
of unemployment, poverty and
overpopulation.
Danna Paola plays “Mónica,”
a lovely young woman from
a humble background with a
The story starring Aracely Arambula, David Chocarro,
Danna Paola and Rebecca Jones reflects the lives of the
hundreds of thousands of women who are victims of
gender violence every day and struggle to remake their
lives. (Courtesy photo)
compassionate and optimistic
attitude toward life. Mónica is
Altagracia’s daughter but was
raised by her father, who kept
the two of them constantly on
the move to stay away from
her mother.
Despite the responsibility of
caring for her invalid father,
Mónica has grown into a resourceful and hardworking
woman. She makes her living
as a street vendor, facing and
reflecting the realities of this
difficult job, so widespread in
Latin America.
Rebecca Jones is “Yesenia,”
Altagracia’s aunt, an ambitious woman who reads Tarot
cards and dabbles in spells and
fortunetelling. Her character
symbolizes all of those who
believe in the power of magic
and look for shortcuts to re-
write their destiny.
In addition to the lead actors
mentioned above, the supporting cast includes Diego Soldano, Rafael Sánchez Navarro,
Gabriela Roél, Odiseo Bichir,
Fátima Molia, Andrea Martí,
Carlos Torres, José María
Galeano, Daniela Bascopé,
Mauricio Isaac, Rodrigo Murray, María del Carmen Félix,
Michelle Olvera, Leo D’luglio
and Mario Moran.

original production made by
Argos Television. Viewers

and also visit the school’s Hall
of Fame, which includes Nasatir and several Nobel Prize
winners.
The program will begin at
6:30 p.m. followed by the
showing of the documentary
at 7 p.m. sharp. No one will
be admitted to the auditorium
after the film has begun. The
documentary will be followed
by a Q&A at 8:30 p.m. with
Marcia Nasatir and producer

Once pronounced by Bob
Dylan as America’s “greatest
living poet,” acclaimed singersongwriter Smokey Robinson
will perform at the Majestic
Theatre (224 E. Houston St.)
on Saturday, Oct. 8 at 8 p.m.
Smokey Robinson’s career
spans over four decades of
hits. Robinson has received
numerous awards including the Grammy Living Legend Award, NARAS Lifetime
Achievement Award, Honorary Doctorate (Howard
University), Kennedy Center
Honors and the National
Medal of Arts Award from the
president of the United States.
He has also been inducted
into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall
of Fame and the Songwriters’
Hall of Fame.
Born and raised in Detroit,
Michigan, Robinson founded
The Miracles while still in high
school. Their single of Robinson’s “Shop Around” became
Motown’s first number one hit
on the R&B singles chart. In
the years following, Robinson
continued to pen hits for the
group including “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me,” “Ooo
Baby Baby,” “Going to a GoGo,” “Tears of a Clown” (cowritten with Stevie Wonder)
and “I Second That Emotion.”
In addition to writing hits
for the Miracles, Robinson
wrote and produced hits for

Marvin Gaye and more. “The
Way You Do the Things You
Do,” “My Girl,” “Get Ready,”
“Ain’t That Peculiar” and “My

songwriting triumphs during
those years.
He later turned to a solo
career where he continued
his tradition of hit making
with “Just to See Her,” “Quiet
Storm,” “Cruisin’,” and “Being
with You,” among others.
During the course of his
50-year career in music, Robinson has accumulated more
than 4,000 songs to his credit

Neil deGrasse Tyson...(continued from page 7-D)
non-government citizen. His
contributions to the public appreciation of the cosmos have
been recognized by the International Astronomical Union in
their official naming of asteroid
13123 Tyson. On the lighter
side, Tyson was voted “Sexiest
Astrophysicist Alive” by People
Magazine in 2000.
In February 2012, Tyson released his tenth book, containing every thought he has ever
had on the past, present and
future of space exploration:
“Space Chronicles: Facing the
Ultimate Frontier.”
Recently, Tyson served as
