On November 29, 1864, 700 Colorado troops savagely slaughtered over 450 Cheyenne
children, disabled, elders, and women in the southeastern Colorado Territory under its
This act became known as the Sand Creek Massacre. This film project (“The Sand Creek
Massacre” documentary film project) is an examination of an open wound in the souls of the
Cheyenne people as told from their perspective. This project chronicles that horrific 19th
century event and its affect on the 21st century struggle for
respectful coexistence between white and native plains cultures
in the United States of America.
Here are directions on how to reach the Sand Creek Massacre
National Historic Site: From Eads, travel three miles east on
Colorado 96, past the U.S. 287 South junction, and then another
11.3 miles to Chivington. Continue past Chivington on
Colorado 96 for another three-fourths of a mile to County Road

to a ‘T’ intersection with Country Road W. Turn right and travel

Lorena Ochoa top-ranked player in the world
“Today is one of the most special days in my life,” said Lorena Ochoa. “I am extremely happy
about becoming number one on the Rolex Rankings and the number one player in the world,
something that I have dreamed about since I was little.
It’s really special because I am at home and I am able to
celebrate the news with the people in my country. This is
a huge accomplishment for me and I recognize and
appreciate the support of my family, sponsors and
management team.”
Lorena Ochoa is now the top-ranked player in the world,
according to the latest Rolex Rankings, released earlier
today. Since its launch in February 2006, Annika
Sorenstam has held the top position. However, on the
strength of Ochoa’s six wins in 2006 and five top-10
finishes in six starts this season, Sorenstam’s lead
dwindled as Ochoa moved closer to the top spot. The
current 104-week period goes back to the 2005 season, in
which Sorenstam won 10 times.
Statistically-speaking, it was possible for Ochoa to take
over the top-spot in the Rolex Rankings with a win at
either the Kraft Nabisco Championship or Ginn OPEN,
based on the strength of the fields each week, but a tie
for 10th and runner-up finish, respectively, prevented the milestone until this week. Ochoa has
been on the heels of Sorenstam as she became the first player since Sorenstam to cross the $2
million mark in season earnings last year, along with Karrie Webb. Additionally, Ochoa was the
first player since Laura Davies in 1996 not named Sorenstam or Webb to earn Rolex Player of
the Year honors.

also places that cater to the growing US Latino
Eleven of the twenty-three titles were released by
Warner Home Video on April 10th, 2007, with an

Library District reveals Zorro is 2007 All Pikes Peak Reads selection
Community-wide project launches this fall
Readers in El Paso County
will enjoy the historic
adventure story of Zorro for the
2007 All Pikes Peak Reads.
The Pikes Peak Library
District announced the 2007 All
Pikes Peak Reads selection at
a news conference Thursday.
The book selections will
include Isabel Allende’s Zorro:
a novel, and The Mark of Zorro,
written by Johnston McCulley.
The project will be built
around two books, one for
young audiences and one for
adults. This allows PPLD to
broaden the scope of APPR to
include improved offerings for
adults and seniors, a key
objective of the library district.
Allende’s Zorro will be used for
adult programming; The Mark
of Zorro will be used for school
curriculum development and
children’s programming.
“This is an exciting selection,
because like Tales from the
Arabian Nights, the legend of
Zorro is not widely taught but
is still well-known by people of
all ages,” said Dee Vazquez,
PPLD Community Relations
The historic legend of Zorro
weaves together Spanish
history, California history,
mythic folk tales, treasure
hunting adventures, Native
American lore and more.
Books will be available for
check out at libraries. Book
discussion materials are also
under development.
The month-long program,
which begins September 30, is
a community-wide effort to
improve literacy and foster
dialogue across social, cultural,
and generational lines. Book
discussion groups, children’s
programs and games, film
screenings, and other Zorro-
themed events will be offered
at the PPLD and other
community sites.

tremendously in recent years

business. This growth is likely
to continue as more and more

consumers to find the

A new, innovative cargo
management system is at the
heart of the accessories offered
for the 2007 Silverado.

a wide range of dealer-ordered
accessory packages. Three rails
that run the length of the box
sides and the forward box wall
are secured with high-strength
incorporate upper and lower
Four adjustable tie-down
brackets are included with
each system and can be located
anywhere on the tracks. Each
tie-down is rated for a load
point of 500 pounds (227 kg).
The rails enable the use of an
overhead utility rack rated at
500 pounds (227 kg) loading
capacity; a sliding diamondpattern tool box; a sliding bed
divider; two diamond-pattern
side storage boxes or a bicycle
Unlike competitors’ systems,
these accessories can use either
the upper or lower rails,
combinations that can easily fit
together or bypass one another
as they slide along the rails. For
added durability, all system
components that utilize the
rails for functionality are
powder coated. The system
was also designed to work
with both hard and soft
tonneau covers, which also are
available as accessories.
For those customers who
need the added protection of
secured storage for tools or
toys, the tool boxes use a
“codeable lock,” enabling only
the vehicle key to lock and
unlock the accessories.

accessory wheels and TPC tire
Silverado enthusiasts will
find the “dubs” they want at
their Chevrolet dealership. A
selection of six stylish 20-inch
wheel designs is available,
each in a chrome finish. The
wheels are offered with
matching tires that have been
selected using GM’s Tire

Rocky Ford Community Helps Promote Health And Wellness During Stroke
Awareness Month
Residents living in and
around the Rocky Ford, Colo.,
community can be screened to
reduce their risk of having a
stroke. Life Line Screening will
be at the First Christian Church
on May 8th. The site is located
at 400 S 9th St in Rocky Ford.
Appointments will begin at
9:00 a.m.
A stroke, also known as a
“brain attack”, is ranked as the
third leading killer in the
world, and the second among
women. Through preventive
screenings, the risk of having
a stroke can be greatly reduced.
This is particularly timely
during May which is Stroke
Awareness Month.
Screenings are fast, painless
and low cost. They involve the
use of ultrasound technology,
and scan for potential health
problems related to: blocked
arteries which can lead to a
stroke, aortic aneurysms which
can lead to a ruptured aorta,
and hardening of the arteries
in the legs, which are a strong
predictor of heart disease. Also
offered for men and women, is
a bone density screening to
“My surgeon said ‘I was a
stroke waiting to happen’ even
though I felt fine." Dolores
Huebinger – Glenwood

All four screenings take less
than an hour to complete. A
complete wellness package,
including the Stroke/Carotid
Artery, Abdominal Aortic
Aneurysm, Ankle Brachial
Index (hardening of the
arteries) and Osteoporosis
screenings, is only $139 (a
savings of $41!).
Life Line Screening was
established in 1993, and has
since become the nation’s
leading provider of vascular
screenings. Over 85 ultrasound
teams are on staff to travel to
your local community,
bringing the screenings to you.

ultrasound tests help people
identify their risk for stroke,

their physician to begin
preventive procedures.

Activity. “We hope our
collaboration with Medicare
on these demonstrations will
improve care for our
beneficiaries with end-stage
renal disease.”
These demonstrations will
increase the opportunity for
Medicare beneficiaries with
end-stage renal disease to
receive integrated disease
management services.
The demonstrations will test
the effectiveness of disease
management models to
increase quality of care for
these patients while ensuring
they receive care more
effectively and efficiently. At
the same time, Medicare will
assess alternatives for paying
for services these beneficiaries
receive. Beneficiaries who
would like to participate in a
demonstration for end-stage
renal disease should speak
with a representative at their
dialysis center to learn if one
is available in their area.

CEO of the Robert Wood
Johnson Foundation.
“For five years, volunteers

Joint Statement From The Alliance For Excellent Education
The Center For American Progress, Jobs For The Future And The
National Council Of La Raza (NCLR) On The Introduction Of The
Graduation Promise Act
Today, four national
organizations committed to
outcomes for America’s high
school students applaud the
introduction of the Graduation
Promise Act (GPA).
The GPA is designed to
improve high schools and
reduce dropout rates, and was
introduced today by U.S.
Senators Jeff Bingaman, DNM, Richard Burr, R-NC, and
Health, Education, Pensions
Chairman Edward Kennedy,
The GPA is enthusiastically
supported by the Alliance for
Excellent Education, the
Center for American Progress,
Jobs for the Future, and the
National Council of La Raza.
“America is facing a dropout
crisis,” said John Podesta,
President and CEO of the
Center for American Progress.
“This crisis was the impetus
behind our report, Addressing
America’s Dropout Challenge,
co-authored with Jobs for the
Future, and is the big flashing
sign saying ‘Act Now’ that
Congress should heed.”
In America today, two in
three students leave high
school unprepared for college
or the modern workplace.
The U.S. Department of Labor
projects that almost 90 percent
of the fastest growing U.S. jobs
require at least some
postsecondary education.
The nation’s fifteen-year-olds,
when measured against their
industrialized nations, rank
fifteenth in reading, twentythird in math, and thirtieth in
problem-solving skills.
“We know what can and
should be done to end the
dropout crisis in this country,”
said Gov. Bob Wise, President
of the Alliance for Excellent
governor of West Virginia.
“By targeting resources to

solutions proven to work, the
GPA turns knowledge into
action. These Senators have
shown the will; their
legislation shows the way.
Congress should pass the GPA
to help make ‘every child a
graduate’ a reality.”
For minority and low-income
students, the situation is
especially dire.
High school students living in
low-income families drop out
of school at six times the rate
of their peers from highincome families, and only
about 55 percent of Black
students and 52 percent of
Hispanic students graduate on
time from high school with a
regular diploma, compared to
78 percent of White students.
“Forty years ago, the United
States led the world in high
school graduation rates; it now
ranks seventeenth,” said
Marlene B. Seltzer, President
and CEO of Jobs for the Future.
“We are moving in the wrong
The GPA answers the need to
move forward and ensure that
all students stay in school and
graduate ready for college and
“It’s unacceptable that
slightly more than half of
Latino and African American
students graduate from high
school,” said Janet Murguía,
President and CEO of the
National Council of La Raza,
the largest national Hispanic
civil rights and advocacy
organization in the U.S.
“The Graduation Promise Act
will help reverse these trends
by focusing attention and
resources on this critical issue.”
The GPA authorizes $2.5 billion
in new funding to:
— Create a federal-state-local
secondary school reform
partnership focused on
transforming the nation’s
lowest performing high
— Build capacity for high
school improvement and
provide resources to ensure
high school educators and
students facing the highest
challenges receive the support
they need to succeed;
— Strengthen state systems to
identify, differentiate among,
and target the level of reform
and resources necessary to
improve low performing high
accountability for that process;
— Advance the research and
development needed to ensure
a robust supply of highly
effective secondary school
models for those most at risk
of being left behind and
identify the most effective
— Support states to align their
policies and systems to meet
the goal of college and careerready graduation for all
