1 20th Anniversary Automundo Pages Salud Page 15 VOL. 20 NO. 36 HISPANIANEWS.COM 13 DE SEPTIEMBRE DE SEPTIEMBRE 2007 El Orgullo De Ser Hispano Por Maria Teresa Bonilla La palabra hispano encierra muchos significados. Pero una cosa es lo que quiere decir y otra cosa es el sentir. Ser hispano es llevar ritmo en el cuerpo, pasión por la tierra que nos vio nacer y amor por las tradiciones. Hispanos quiere decir también diversidad, variedad de banderas, de comida y de acentos de muchos pueblos, que al final de cuentas tienen algo en común, hablar el mismo idioma: El español. Desde México, pasando por Colombia y llegando a la Patagonia, sin olvidar por supuesto la Madre Patria, España, los nacidos en estas tierras de hermosos paisajes sin fin tienen otros aspectos en común, el orgullo por las tradiciones, la riqueza cultural y la importancia y el respeto por la familia. El Mes Nacional de la Herencia Hispana es una celebración que se lleva a cabo durante treinta días. Una serie de festivales, conciertos, desfiles y mucho más ocurre en Continua página 4 United States Senator Ken Salazar announced that Colorado s military installations will receive over $600 million under the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act of 2008 (H.R. 2642) - passed by the Senate. Overall, the bill will provide $109.2 billion in appropriations for military construction, military family housing and veterans affairs programs throughout the Country. Senator Salazar also was successful in including an amendment that will halt the expansion of the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site for one year. By passing this very important piece of legislation, Roy P. Benavides was presented the Congressional Medal of Honor for services to his country in Vietnam. Benavides park is located 3395 Afternoon Circle in Colorado Springs. Sen.

National Hispanic Heritage Month provides us an opportunity to express deep appreciation to Hispanic Americans for their countless contributions to our society and to pay tribute again to America s distinctive diversity. Since our Nation s founding, Hispanic Americans have played an integral role in our country s exceptional story of success. Hispanic Americans served with heroism in every major American military conflict. The Continental Army benefited from the valor of Bernardo de Gálvez, who led his frequently outnumbered troops to numerous victories against the British. Luis Esteves organized the first Puerto Rico National Guard and rose through the ranks of the U.S. Army to become a distinguished Brigadier General. And 38 Hispanics have earned our Nation s highest military decoration, the Medal of Honor. The United States academic and scientific communities benefited from the contributions of Hispanic Americans like physicist Luis Walter Alvarez, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in Business leaders like Roberto Goizueta have had a positive effect on our Nation s economy; and many Hispanics have greatly influenced America s artistic, legal, and political communities. Cont. on page 18 Hispanic Heritage Month 2007: Sept. 15 Oct. 15 In September 1968, Congress authorized President Lyndon B. Johnson to proclaim National Hispanic Heritage Week, which was observed during the week including Sept. 15 and Sept. 16. The observance was expanded in 1988 to a monthlong celebration (Sept. 15 Oct. 15). America celebrates the culture and traditions of U.S. residents who trace their roots to Spain, Mexico and the Spanishspeaking nations of Central America, South America and the Caribbean. Sept. 15 was chosen as the starting point for the celebration because it is the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on Sept. 16 and Sept. 18, respectively. Population 44.3 million - The estimated Hispanic population of the United States as of July 1, 2006, making people of Hispanic origin the nation s largest ethnic or race minority. Hispanics constituted 15 percent of the nation s total population. (This estimate does not include the 3.9 million residents of Puerto Rico.) Cont. on page 18

During the next few months, she ll try to make the same kind of impact on one of PCC s education divisions. Soto-Quintana has been named PCC s Interim Dean of Business and Technology at Pueblo Community College. She steps into the shoes vacated by Laura Solano, who recently was named the college s Vice President of Learning. Soto-Quintana will serve in this capacity until PCC undergoes a search process and hires a full-time dean, after which she will return to her previous job as the B&T division s advising coordinator. The interim position is one that Soto- Quintana is tackling with her usual positive focus and contagious spirit. Jeanelle Soto-Quintana My whole intent is to try to make the transition for our division as smooth as possible, she said. The staff has been extremely supportive and patient with the learning curve that is taking place. Since she came to PCC five years ago as its GEAR-UP coordinator, Soto- Quintana s trademark has been the zeal she has displayed in helping students succeed. Back then, she encouraged middle and high school students to plan for higher education. I loved working with youth and being able to visibly see them start to dream about the possibility of (attending) college, Jeanelle explained. Later, she became the Business & Technology division s education advocate, a position that underwent a change of title and responsibilities and evolved into the advising coordinator post. The thing that has remained constant is her love of working with students. I have been able to help facilitate the college experience and provide encouragement and support to tons of wonderful students through advising and retention initiatives, she said, adding that she considers herself blessed to be serving an institution where student success is the top priority. A decade ago while employed in the correctional profession, Jeanelle never imagined working in higher education. Eventually, she decided she wanted to do more with her life and quit work to return to college. I wanted to be part of the change in a person s life in a more positive way, she explained. She eventually earned both bachelor s and master s degrees (business administration) from what then was the University of Southern Colorado. That education has changed her life, just like the lives she will help change in her interim dean position. I look forward to the experience and opportunity to work with the other divisional deans, vice presidents and president on issues and initiatives that will continue to support our students here at PCC, she said. Have A Happy Healthy New Year

The 2007 campaign will be led by a committee that will organize teams to call donors and compete to raise dollars to support CASA. There will also be a competition among corporate teams, including Smith Barney, the Elite 25 Realtors, and Northwestern Mutual. The Drive to Thrive Committee is chaired by Josh Waymire and includes Wayne Bland, Rob McDonald, Jennifer McHugh, and Martin Thrasher.

Flora Camejo-Lenhart, (English Language Acquisition Consultant) said there is a critical need for bilingual experts to provide tutoring and translation services. We have a rapidly growing international student body, so we must have adults who are I just reached another anniversary of my 39th birthday. Age and what it means to certain people is a unique test for all of us. In Vietnam, I remember thinking God just let me reach the age of mid twenties, then that changed to let me reach 30. Then before you know it, one reaches 40, you find yourself retired from the military, people said you are too young to retired. Through this time one still had favorite songs that will linger. Our own standards if your will, Can t stop falling in love with you (Elvis), Unchained Melody (The Righteous Brothers), Volver, Volver, (Vicente Fernandez), just to name a few. You get past 40; but don t think about it, because you feel 30 something and so many exiting dynamics happen in your presence. Then comes the 10th anniversary and you begin to change your life style, you are at the YMCA 5 days a week, watch what you eat and drink, someone says your are too old to be doing this or that; but you are too young for the senior discount. Then you think about perhaps the song I should recite is I did it my way. It makes you, wonder, wonder how some things happened. Did I really comprehend all that was happening all around me and did I develop positive results! My daughter graduated from college, is now married. Her seven year old nephew and my grandson called me to wish me a happy anniversary; I want to see him play football in high school. I don t doubt that I will see him play football, I want to be there for his first game and I will. Over 40, one has to be careful, in ones zeal to please others; one can be conditioned to believe we have become inadequate. This and other obscurities can feel real, just because of fear of disappointment. Things change and then they stay the same, it takes a cold hard wake up call sometimes to get your attention. I made a request of this lady (shall go nameless) for a Christmas holiday gala, she replied that I was too old, may not make it to Christmas, therefore would not commit. I have some Fruitcake that was meant for her last year (she disappeared) but I will promise you this: as young as she thinks she is, I will live long enough to deliver this fruitcake to her grandchildren.

After all that I have shared with you, if you believe, you know that at times the man in charge can speak to you in a very profound way. As I was walking up the aisle to receive communion, I noticed next to me, a young lady years old, in a wheel chair, she seemed very demure, escorted and powered by a guide dog.

4 13 de septiembre - 20 de septiembre 2007 Noticias en Español News in Spanish Page 5 Destacado Hispano: Idioma Y Cultura Fueron Importantes En Su Carrera Por Ruth E. Hernández Beltrán / EFE El salvadoreño Richard Cañas, a cargo de la seguridad en el estado de Nueva Jersey, asegura que mantener su español y sus raíces latinas han sido factores importante que le abrieron puertas en su amplia carrera en el Gobierno de EEUU. Para la persona que quiere trabajar, tiene educación y la ventaja de tener doble cultura, las puertas están abiertas. Es una ventaja sumamente importante y ahora más que nunca en un país donde 3 de 10 personas son latinos, dijo a Efe Cañas. Fue director del Centro Nacional de Inteligencia Antidrogas; agente especial a cargo de la oficina del D e p a r t a m e n t o Estadounidense Antidrogas (DEA) en Phoenix, Arizona y ayudante especial de la Agencia Central de Inteligencia. También dirigió el Concejo de Seguridad Nacional de la Casa Blanca para las administraciones de los presidentes George Bush padre y Bill Clinton. Mi consejo a la juventud es que no olviden el español y su cultura y usen esa cultura como ventaja porque seguirá siendo muy importante en momentos en que la comunidad hispana sigue creciendo, comentó Cañas, quien no oculta el orgullo por sus raíces, lo que atribuye a sus padres, que emigraron en 1945 a EEUU. Cañas, de 67 años y que inició su carrera como policía, recordó que creció en San Francisco, California, junto a su hermana Ana María, cuando había muy pocos latinos, por lo que el español sólo lo hablaba en casa. Cuando mi hermana y yo crecimos éramos los únicos hispanos en la escuela. Mi padre siempre empujaba la educación y sé que él quería que tuviera otra carrera, pero a pesar de eso, siempre tuvo orgullo por sus hijos, su país e idioma y todo eso se quedó con nosotros, afirmó. Su padre, Ricardo, era dentista en San Salvador, profesión que no pudo ejercer en San Francisco, donde trabajó por casi 20 años como técnico dental para el Ejército, mientras su madre, María Teresa, se dedicó al cuidado del hogar. Para esa época las mujeres no trabajaban, no aprendió el idioma y en su vida escribió un cheque. De todo eso se encargaba mi padre, quien se jubiló en 1968 y regresó a El Salvador, donde abrió su clínica y ejerció la profesión hasta que murió en 1981, recordó Cañas, padre de cinco a quienes también enseñó el El Orgullo De Ser Hispano Continua de página 4 al mundo entero. O de una Katy Jurado, la actriz mexicana que hizo carrera importante en Hollywood, y que fue nominada a un Oscar de la Academia. Sería imposible mencionarlos a todos los que han recorrido el camino, pero no se puede olvidar a un Edward James Olmos, actor nacido en Los Angeles de padres mexicanos, que además de ser un excelente artista es un activista en pro de los derechos de los inmigrantes, prueba de ello es la cinta que dirigió para el canal HBO, Walkouts, película que narra las manifestaciones de estudiantes en 1968 en la zona este de Los Angeles, de la que él en su juventud formó parte. Nombres que no se pueden dejar pasar como los de Ricardo Montalban, sinónimo del triunfo asociado con la serie Fantasy island, y las películas Star Trek II, y The wrath of Khan, entre otras. Y quien ha participado a lo largo de su exitosa vida en aproximadamente cuarenta largometrajes en México, Europa y Estados Unidos. Más recientemente la cantante cubana Gloria Estefan o el cantante puertorriqueño José Feliciano han seguido haciendo su parte para que la imagen del hispano se asocie a sus hermosas voces. En fin, ejemplos del triunfo de esta comunidad en las artes escénicas serían infinitos. Por eso no deja de ser impresionante ver a un Vicente Fernández junto a su hijo Alejandro, colocar sus huellas en el Paseo de la Fama de Hollywood, o a una Shakira poner a bailar con su particular idioma. Para la década del 1960, Cañas comenzó con la policía de Salinas, en California, con la que trabajó durante ocho años, para luego ocupar un puesto de más responsabilidad. Fue difícil (entrar a la policía) pero había necesidad de emplear hispanos y especialmente que hablaran español porque empezaban las pandillas, drogas y crímenes que requerían de hablar español con víctimas y acusados, indicó. En ese sentido hacía doble trabajo y cada vez que había una investigación de un caso, llamaban al que hablaba español, que en esa época éramos tres o cuatro, señaló. Sus destrezas le llevaron posteriormente al D e p a r t a m e n t o Estadounidense Antidrogas (DEA), donde por su dominio del idioma fue asignado a trabajar en América Latina, en importantes investigaciones sobre el transporte y tráfico de drogas. De su paso por Casa Blanca, bajo administraciones republicanas y demócratas, aseguró que la política nunca entró en esto porque estamos trabajando contra el crimen y en eso no hay política. La prioridad más alta en EEUU en ese entonces era combatir la droga así que buscaban gente con ritmo a miles de fanáticos. Hoy les toca a Juanes, a una Salma Hayek o a una Eva Longoria seguir llevando el nombre de los hispanos en alto. Y si que lo han hecho bien, ellos junto al cantante puertorriqueño Ricky Martín, la actriz argentina Mia Maestrro, ( Posseidon ), la actriz mexicana Ana de la Reguera, y otro tanto que por espacio es imposibles de mencionar, llenan de esperanza el panorama y nos hacen pensar que el futuro de la música, el cine y la televisión en Estados Unidos tienen nombre latino, una realidad que no se puede parar. hispanianews.com experiencia y yo había trabajado casi 12 años en cargos importantes en México, Guatemala, El Salvador y Washington, recordó. En la década del 90 cambié de antidrogas a antiterrorismo cuando cambió esa prioridad en EEUU. Aunque la droga sigue siendo una amenaza, el terrorismo es una prioridad mucho más alta, aseguró. A principios de este año el gobernador de New Jersey, Jon Corzine, designó a Cañas como director de su recién creada agencia de seguridad. Buscaban experiencia porque las prioridades han cambiado. Ahora el temor y tema más importante para el público en aspecto de seguridad es el terrorismo, sostuvo. Cañas tiene la responsabilidad de coordinar con todas las agencias del orden la seguridad en Nueva Jersey, bajo la Fiscalía General del Estado, aunque responde directamente a Corzine. Al mirar hacia sus tres décadas de carrera, reiteró que agradece a sus padres no haber dejado que olvidara el español. Me ha servido para desarrollarme y ser más valioso en la carrera que escogí. Además me enseñaron a no olvidar la cultura, que es más importante que el idioma, tener orgullo de ser hispano, sostuvo con satisfacción. Fred L.

5 Page 4 13 de septiembre - 20 de septiembre 2007 Noticias en Español News in Spanish Donate Life America Disipa Los Mitos Sobre La Donación De Órganos Y Tejidos Entre Los Hispanos Durante El Mes Nacional De La Hispanidad Del 15 de septiembre al 15 de octubre de 2007 Fuente: Donate Life America Si bien casi 4,000 hispanos recibieron el don de la vida a través de la donación de órganos y tejidos en 2006, los mitos profundamente afincados con respecto a la donación continúan siendo la principal barrera que impide que muchos hispanos sean donantes de órganos y tejidos. En reconocimiento del Mes de la Hispanidad, Donate Life America se ocupará de estos mitos y alentará a la comunidad hispana, largamente celebrada por su gusto por la vida, a conocer los hechos, visitar y ofrecer un don que prolonga la vida a otros. Una comunidad vibrante como la nuestra, con un sorprendente amor por la vida, debería ser uno de los principales pilares de la donación, dice Aisha Huertas, Coordinadora de Marketing y Extensión Pública para Donate Life America. Debemos informarnos sobre la donación de órganos y tejidos, dejar atrás nuestros miedos e indicar una decisión de donación. Cada persona que toma la decisión podría salvar o mejorar las vidas de más de 50 personas. Eso hace una enorme diferencia. Uno de los principales errores conceptuales que impiden que los hispanos tomen la decisión de donar vida es la creencia de que en una situación de sala de emergencia, los médicos no harán tanto esfuerzo para salvar la vida de una persona que ha indicado su voluntad de ser donante. Los médicos hacen una promesa de salvar vidas, continúa Huertas. La vida de un donante no es menos importante que la vida de un receptor. Otros errores conceptuales se basan en una desconfianza en el proceso de donación de órganos y el sistema de asignaciones. Muchos hispanos creen que los ricos obtienen un tratamiento preferencial. No confían en que sus órganos sean asignados a la persona que más lo necesita. Donate Life America procura educar a los hispanos con respecto al proceso de asignación, para enfatizar que la celebridad o la condición financiera de la persona no juega un papel en la decisión. La asignación se basa en diversos factores médicos y logísticos, incluidos el tipo de sangre, el tamaño del órgano que se necesita y el tiempo de espera. La religión también es una barrera, porque muchos consideran incorrectamente que la donación está en contra de su fe. Todas las principales religiones, incluida la Iglesia Católica Romana, no sólo apoyan la donación de órganos y tejidos, sino que el Papa Benedicto XVI ha declarado que donar los propios órganos significa expresar un verdadero y profundo acto de amor por el prójimo. Otros mitos incluyen la percepción de que hay un costo para donar, o que la donación interfiere con los arreglos funerarios normales. La donación es gratuita para el donante y su patrimonio, y no interfiere con los arreglos funerarios. Los donantes pueden tener un funeral común, con el ataúd Negocios Apoyando la Comunidad Hispánica Cross Country Cruises Relax More and Pay Less abierto. Durante todo el Mes Nacional de la Hispanidad, Donate Life America se ha comprometido a presentar los hechos de salvación de vidas que rodean a estos mitos comunes, ofreciendo información sobre la donación de órganos y tejidos y actividades de extensión a la comunidad hispana a través de la radio, televisión y medios impresos. Para separar los hechos de la ficción y averiguar cómo comprometerse a donar, visite el sitio web en español en o llame al VIDA. Fundada en 1992, la misión de Donate Life America es servir como una voz nacional e inspirar a todas las personas a salvar y mejorar otras vidas a través de la donación de órganos, ojos y tejidos. El Orgullo De Ser Hispano Continua de página 1 todo el país en honor a las diversas contribuciones que han hecho los hispanos a los Estados Unidos. Desde desarrollar importantes papeles en los conflictos bélicos, hasta enriquecer el arte y la comida de los Estados Unidos. Los hispanos han ayudado a fortalecer y a fundar este gran país. En reconocimiento a esto, el 28 de septiembre de 2001 el presidente de los Estados Unidos, George W. Bush, proclamó y designó el periodo del 15 de septiembre al 15 de octubre como el Mes Nacional de la Herencia Hispana. De esta manera formalizó el reconocimiento de los logros y de las influencias que los hispanos tienen en Estados Unidos. El aporte de éstos en todas sus manifestaciones está presente en la cultura norteamericana hoy más que nunca. Las exquisiteces culinarias de la tradición hispana dominan el panorama gastronómico. Restaurantes mexicanos, peruanos, venezolanos, caribeños colombianos, españoles, entre otros, son los favoritos por su rico sabor. Hoy en día muchos prefieren un taco a una hamburguesa. Y es que ser hispano está de moda, y en las artes mucho más. No hay filme de Hollywood que se respete donde no haya un hispano participando, ya sea dirigiendo o actuando, y los cantantes no tienen que interpretar sus temas en inglés para hacer el famoso crossover. Y ni qué decir de la belleza latina que domina los certámenes mundiales, como el Miss Universo, donde Puerto Rico ha sido el país con más reinas en su historia que se han ceñido la ansiada corona universal un total de 5 veces, incluyendo el año pasado que se la llevó la espectacular morena Zuleyka Rivera. En los últimos años son lo artistas más jóvenes los que han recibido de manos de las leyendas del pasado el honor de seguir representando a los hispanos en los escenarios, la televisión y el cine. Por sólo mencionar los que se vienen a la mente están por ejemplo Rita Moreno, una de las grandes artistas puertorriqueñas. Actriz, bailarina y cantante, cuya versatilidad le ha conferido décadas de éxito en teatro, cine y televisión. Esta mujer ha demostrado que los artistas hispanos no están limitados a papeles étnicos, y en ese proceso ha sido la primera mujer actriz que ha recibido los cuatro grandes premios de la industria del entretenimiento en el país: Un Oscar, un Tony, un Grammy y un Emmy. Ni qué decir de la cubana Celia Cruz, cuya música es un legado universal que ya no le pertenece a los hispanos, sino Continua página 5 A.J. s Cleaning, Inc.

La encuesta NAIC muestra que cuando se trata de las pólizas de seguros de sus propias viviendas, los consumidores carecen de conocimientos suficientes Según la última investigación realizada por la Asociación Nacional de Comisionados de Seguros (National Association of Insurance Commissioners - NAIC) un gran porcentaje de dueños de viviendas propias en los Estados Unidos creen, equivocadamente, que los seguros de sus propias viviendas los protegen de una amplia gama de riesgos. De hecho, las pólizas típicas de seguros de responsabilidad y cosas (property and liability insurance) no cubren los daños materiales de una vivienda causados por inundaciones, terremotos, roturas de la red de distribución de agua, termes, moho y varios riesgos más, grandes y pequeños. La encuesta encontró que el 33 por ciento de las familias estadounidenses establecidas, propietarias de sus viviendas y con seguro de vivienda propia, creen equivocadamente que una póliza estándar de vivienda propia o una póliza de responsabilidad y cosas ( property and liability policy ) cubrirá los daños materiales causados por inundaciones. Esto ocurre a pesar de la amplia cobertura que los medios de comunicación realizaron sobre las víctimas del Huracán Katrina, cuyas reclamaciones fueron denegadas por carecer de seguro contra inundaciones. Muchos propietarios aprendieron de manera penosa, que sus pólizas de seguros no proporcionaban protección contra inundaciones, comentó Walter Bell, Presidente de NAIC y Comisionado de Seguros de Alabama. Nosotros recomendamos especialmente a los consumidores que habitan en áreas propensas a las inundaciones, que averigüen si están apropiadamente cubiertos. De acuerdo con NAIC, el National Flood Insurance Program - NFIP (Programa nacional de seguros contra inundaciones) del gobierno federal, dispone de pólizas de seguros contra inundaciones, que frecuentemente venden los agentes de seguros que ofrecen pólizas para la vivienda propia. La encuesta de NAIC también revela otros malentendidos relacionados con las situaciones de pérdida más comunes -ninguna de las cuales está cubierta por las pólizas de seguros estándar de la vivienda propia-. Entre dichos malentendidos se cuentan los siguientes: El 68 por ciento piensa que vehículos tales como automóviles, botes y motocicletas robados o dañados en su propiedad, están cubiertos. El 51 por ciento piensa que los daños producidos por la rotura de una red de distribución de agua que provee a su propiedad, están cubiertos. El 35 por ciento piensa que los daños producidos por un terremoto están cubiertos. Muchos dueños de sus viviendas podrían sufrir serios daños financieros debidos a la falta de entendimiento o de interpretación de sus seguros, dijo Bell. Es extremadamente importante que los consumidores analicen sus pólizas y le hagan preguntas detalladas a sus agentes de seguros para estar completamente al tanto de lo que está y no está cubierto. La encuesta de NAIC reveló otro tipo de posible malentendido. El veinticuatro por ciento de los entrevistados señaló que sus pólizas aseguraban sus hogares por el valor real en el mercado, mientras que el sesenta y cuatro por ciento dijo que sus pólizas cubrían el costo de la reposición. Otro doce por ciento dijo que no sabían qué tipo de cobertura -valor real en el mercado o costo de reposición- habían comprado. Valor real en el mercado ( actual cash value ) es la cantidad de dinero que se necesitaría para reparar o reemplazar los daños de una vivienda y su contenido después de una valuación. Costo de reposición ( replacement cost ) es la cantidad de dinero que se necesitaría para reemplazar o volver a construir la vivienda o reparar los daños con materiales de naturaleza y calidad similares, sin deducir la depreciación. Es importante que los consumidores entiendan esta distinción, señaló Bell. En el caso de una pérdida que esté cubierta, el pago del valor real en el mercado podrían ser miles de dólares menos que el beneficio calculado del costo de reposición. La NAIC proporciona una amplia información, consejos útiles y consideraciones con respecto a los seguros de la vivienda propia, en su sitio Web Insure U (http:// dedicado a la educación del consumidor. Todo el sitio está disponible en español (http:/ /www.insureuonline.org/ espanol). Consejos útiles sobre seguros del sitio Insure U de NAIC para los dueños de viviendas propias Aumente la cobertura de su seguro a medida que se incremente el valor de su vivienda y adquiera bienes de alto valor, como muebles, computadoras, aparatos de audio y televisores. En cuanto al mantenimiento de su vivienda, tenga en cuenta que usted es responsable por lo que ocurra en su propiedad. Tenga en cuenta que en muchos estados usted puede ser considerado legalmente responsable por las acciones de toda persona que ingiera bebidas alcohólicas en su casa y luego se accidente en dicha propiedad o después de irse de la misma. Su póliza debería protegerle contra juicios debidos a esta clase de problemas de responsabilidad civil. A medida que adquiera más bienes de valor -joyas, cosas provenientes de la herencia familiar, antigüedades, objetos de arte- considere la compra de una póliza flotante (o abierta) adicional o agregar una cláusula adicional a la póliza que ya tiene, para cubrir estos bienes especiales. Una buena idea es hacer un inventario de todas sus pertenencias personales, junto con una fotografía o video de cada habitación. Además, guarde los recibos de los ítems más importantes en un lugar seguro, lejos de su casa o apartamento. Esto facilitará los trámites en caso de que alguna vez necesite presentar una reclamación. Los consumidores también deberían protegerse a sí mismos de las estafas de compañías de seguros fraudulentas que venden pólizas de seguros inválidas,dijo Catherine J. Weatherford, Vicepresidenta ejecutiva y Gerente general de NAIC. Todo lo que necesitan hacer es detenerse antes de comprar un seguro y dedicar unos pocos minutos a llamar al departamento de seguros de su estado y confirmar si una compañía es legítima y está autorizada a vender seguros en su estado.

Los Migrantes Mexicanos En El Primer Informe De Gobierno Del Presidente Felipe Calderón En el Mensaje a la Nación con motivo de su Primer Informe de Gobierno, el Presidente Felipe Calderón Hinojosa hizo un reconocimiento a la aportación que hacen los migrantes mexicanos y destacó los esfuerzos de su administración en la defensa de los derechos de los compatriotas más allá de las fronteras. Dentro del rubro de política exterior de su mensaje, el presidente Felipe Calderón destacó: He dicho que México no termina en su frontera, que donde quiera que haya un mexicano, ahí está México, por eso la acción del Gobierno en favor de nuestros paisanos migrantes se guía por principios, por la defensa y protección de sus derechos, por la prevención para detectar medidas que puedan afectar a nuestra gente y por el profesionalismo que debemos brindar a nuestros connacionales.

7 13 de septiembre - 20 de septiembre 2007 NEGOCIOS Business PCC s SBDC featured in state women s magazine Known more for helping business owners succeed, the Small Business Development Center at Pueblo Community College finds itself in the spotlight today after being showcased because of its own successful operation. The Pueblo SBDC is featured in the Sept./Oct issue of Divapreneurs magazine, a statewide publication that promotes women in business. In it, Caroline Parra, the SBDC s executive director, highlights some of the services offered by the center as well as a female business client that has succeeded because of the assistance she received from Caroline Parra, SBDC s Executive Director the center. Parra was asked to pen the article titled Business 101 because of the Pueblo SBDC s reputation for helping its business clients succeed. Much of the article focuses on Shelley McPherson, a businesswoman who is successfully running her Wiping Rags, Inc. company in Pueblo thanks to the assistance she received from the SBDC.

It also conducts a 12-week Leading Edge course that September Issue of Hispanic Business Magazine Focuses On Diversity Issues Hispanic Business magazine s September edition, which features its annual report on diversity, its Best Schools for Hispanics list and the Diversity Elite 60 - the top companies with opportunities for Hispanics. ANNUAL REPORT: Hispanic students and professionals face two key challenges: antiaffirmative action policies and a push toward globalization. Companies are hiring foreign nationals who are considered Hispanic but who often lack the cultural experiences shared by U.S. Hispanics. While Hispanic students in U.S. schools stand to fill the diversity need, getting them into the higher-education pipeline and keeping them there have become increasingly difficult. With this in mind, Hispanic Business magazine has compiled its Best Schools for Hispanics top ten lists. BEST SCHOOLS: After analyzing Hispanic enrollment figures, Hispanic faculty numbers and the amount of degrees earned by Hispanics at universities across the nation, Hispanic Business magazine compiled its Best Schools for Hispanics top 10 lists in the fields of business, engineering, law and medicine. The University of Texas at Austin, University of New Mexico and Stanford University each claimed a No. 1 ranking. UT Austin was crowned with the No. 1 medical school, the No. 2 business school, and the No. 3 law school. Stanford was named the top business school, placed second among medical schools and finished eighth on the best law schools list. The top spot on the law schools list went to the University of New Mexico. Hispanic Business determined that University of Texas at El Paso was the best engineering school for Hispanics. Looking to the future of the Hispanic graduates from these universities, Hispanic Business magazine lists top companies belonging to its Diversity Elite 60. What Isn t Covered by your Homeowners Insurance? NAIC Survey Shows Lack of Awareness among Consumers When it comes to Their Homeowners Policies A large percentage of U.S. homeowners mistakenly believe that standard homeowners insurance protects them from a wide array of perils, according to new research by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). In fact, typical property and liability policies don t cover home damage from floods, earthquakes, water line breaks, termites, mold and several other perils, large and small. The survey found that 33 percent of U.S. heads of household, who own a home and have homeowners insurance, incorrectly believe flood damages would be covered by a standard homeowners or property and liability policy. This is despite extensive media coverage on Cont. on page 19 TOP COMPANIES: Hispanic Business magazine also placed the nation s top companies under the microscope to find out which belonged in its Diversity Elite 60.

Arlintgon, Texas - H.S. Fort Worth Country Day Alexander led Colorado College to a win in their season and home opener against Pomona- Pitzer Colleges. He rushed 26 times for 195 yards and two touchdowns, averaging 7.5 yards per carry. It was his second most ever yards in a single game and his fifth career game with 100 or more yards.

Sperry tears ACL in left knee, out for season Medical tests confirm Colorado State star Kory Sperry has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, ending the senior s season. Surgery has not been scheduled. A timeline for recovery would put him back on the field by next summer should he decide to return next year and petition the NCAA for a medical hardship waiver. Sperry, a 6-foot-6, 260-pound tight end from Vineland, Colo., was injured in the first quarter of CSU s game against Cal on Saturday. His three-touchdown performance in the opener against Colorado earned him the John Mackey award as the national tight end of the week. It s the fourth straight season Colorado State has lost a key player to a season-ending injury knee injury. Last year, the Rams lost running back Kyle Bell to an ACL injury during the final week of preseason practice. In 2005, it was safety Ben Stratton who went down with a torn ACL in camp and in 04, linebacker Eric Pauly tore an ACL against Utah late in the season. At 6-foot-6 and 260 pounds, Sperry has the size, speed and skills that make NFL scouts take notice. He scored three touchdowns against Colorado in the opener. Sperry, a 6-foot-6, 260-pound prospect, was hurt in the first quarter of the Rams loss Saturday to California.

A brand-new model for North America, Rondo encompasses Kia s Power to Surprise tag line and fits perfectly into the company s evolving image as a leader in safety and value. The all-new Rondo is a perfect addition to further Kia s growth in the U.S. market, and allows us to be even more competitive, especially in the everexpanding crossover vehicle segment, said Len Hunt, executive vice president and COO of KMA. By broadening our product selection, and with the news of our vehicles high level of comfort, quality and performance spreading throughout the industry, more consumers will be attracted to the Kia brand when considering a future vehicle purchase. Smooth, Clean Exterior Lines (Car Stylatude) The Rondo instantly garners attention with its fresh, clean look thanks to a modern dynamic shape. Available in LX and EX trim levels, standard LX features include body-colored door handles, body-colored side moldings and black front grille crossbars packaged with newly designed 16-inch, sixspoke alloy wheels fitted with 205/60HR16 tires. Upgrading to an EX adds fog lights, 17-inch, five-spoke alloy wheels and 225/50R17 Michelin tires.

Exterior color choices include two completely new Kia colors, Urban Gray and Fine Silver. Roomy Interior Provides Versatility (Huge Cabinocity, Seat Flexology) Exterior refinement continues to flow into the cabin. Standard features include flat woven seat fabric, an AM/FM/CD tuner with four speakers and air conditioning (for most models) along with power windows, door locks and mirrors. The EX upgrades to Double Raschel seat fabric; an MP3- capable AM/FM/CD/ Cassette stereo with front tweeters and steering wheelmounted audio controls; a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob; illuminated vanity mirrors; and metal-finish interior door handles. Additional packaging options accentuate the interior to nearluxury status. The Convenience Package (LX) adds cruise control and keyless entry; the Leather Package (EX) adds heated leather seats; and the Premium Package (EX) adds a power sunroof and upgraded 10- speaker Infinity AM/FM/ MP3-capable 315-watt digital audio system with in-dash six- CD changer and 7.5-inch subwoofer. Inside Rondo, an immediate sense of spaciousness in the legroom and headroom departments is evident. The standard five- and optional seven-passenger seating configurations will appeal to consumers looking for the functionality of a minivan, but not the size and heft. Slightly taller and wider than its closest competitor, the Mazda5, the Rondo provides a comfortable front row with 41.6 inches of headroom and 41.3 inches of legroom. Second-row space is fixed at 40.2 inches of headroom and 38.2 inches of legroom, regardless of a five- or sevenpassenger seating layout. The optional third-row seating offers a sensible 35.1 inches of headroom and 31.3 inches of legroom, more than enough room to accommodate the average-sized adult. And when optioned with the third row, Rondo s second row adjusts with a forward/ backward sliding range of nearly one foot in travel. The versatile second-row seats also provide the flexibility of a 60/40 multi-fold split, while the third row folds down in a 50/50 split. Additionally, both rows fold completely flat for maximized cargo room. Practicality does not sacrifice comfort as the driver s seat offers six-way adjustments, including height adjustment, and the front passenger offers four-way adjustments. In addition, each passenger is well taken care of with an abundance of storage cubbies and multiple cup holders located in every row.

Fillmore St, Colorado Springs, CO SALUD Health What Coloradoans Need to Know About Disaster Preparedness By Elton W. Ringsak, SBA Region VIII Administrator Hurricanes, floods, wildfires, tornadoes and other natural disaster leave thousands homeless and businesses ruined in their wake. Small businesses are particularly vulnerable to the catastrophe of losing important financial records when they fail to back up that data and store important records offsite. Colorado is not immune from natural disasters. This year s devastating tornado in Holly, CO is a perfect example of why it is critical to prepare for a disaster before it happens. Homeowners, renters and business owners should prepare for the inevitability of disaster. The U.S. Small Business Administration offers the following suggestions for a disaster preparedness plan: Business owners should start by identifying the company s vulnerabilities. Look at external risks such as flooding, or wind damage if your business is located in an area where tornadoes or hurricanes occur. Create your disaster plan with the aim of mitigating those risks. Develop plans to remain in operation if your office, plant or store is unusable. Look at your critical functions and make sure you know how to keep them operational. The plan will provide a road map of how to operate your business during a crisis. You will then want to test the plan to make sure it works for you. Adequate insurance coverage is essential. Review your current policy to make sure you understand what is not covered. Most policies don t cover flood damage. The National Flood Insurance Program provides coverage to property owners. For more information, go to the NFIP Web site at When shopping for insurance, think about property damage as well as the loss of revenue and extra expenses that arise while the business is shut down. Business owners should consider business interruption insurance, which covers operating expenses in the event of a business shutdown. According to the Institute for Insurance Information, business interruption insurance is not sold separately, but added to a property insurance policy or included in a package policy. Business interruption insurance compensates you for lost income if your company has to vacate the premises because of a disaster. It covers the profits you would have earned, based on your financial records, if the disaster had not occurred. It also covers operating expenses, like electricity, that continue even though the business has temporarily shut down Homeowners, renters and business owners should make copies of important records, back up data saved on computer hard drives, and store that information at a distant offsite location. Business owners should make backup copies of critical records and store them at a remote offsite location the farther away the better. Documents and CDs should be stored in fire-proof safe deposit boxes. Information protection and storage companies like Iron Mountain and Unicom provide data protection solutions. Another good idea is to send backup data to a trusted thirdparty office, who can make sure you have you data when you need it. If you own the building where you do business, upgrades can be made to the property, based on the hazards in your area. For instance, if you live in the part of the country where windstorms occur, consider installing impact-resistant windows and doors. Make sure the roof can weather a storm.

Get items off the floor. It s a good idea to asses the impact a natural disaster would have on your facility, and then take the steps to prevent possible future damage. A communications strategy is a key post-disaster recovery strategy. Phone numbers and addresses for your insurance carrier, suppliers, creditors, employees and customers, the local media, utility companies, and the appropriate emergency response and recovery agencies should be updated regularly. This list should be maintained by a key employee, and a backup person. Appoint a spokesperson to get the word out that your business is still open to dispel rumors of business failure. More preparedness tips for businesses, homeowners and renters are available on the SBA s Web site at disasterassistance/ index.html.

We did not meet our goal but we are very grateful for the efforts of those who signed up and those who recruited walkers. We had a good time and enjoyed a cloudy but rainless day. We ate, drank, danced, laughed, walked, ran and shared a great time with many great people. The venue was great! A big thank you to Angeles Vargas who recruited the most walkers [15] all at the last minute because she was crazy busy taking care of her family. She worked very hard to pay the fees for herself AND her 4 children! We know that this was a sacrifice for her; we thank her for her dedication to Komen and to JUNTAS. Angeles is the recipient of a $50 Wal Mart card for her efforts. Chris Martinez from the District 11 Office recruited 11! This was the first year that she has organized walkers for JUNTAS and we are extremely grateful! We will be sending Chris a card for $25 for her efforts in recruiting eleven walkers.

And of course, once again, a heartfelt thanks to my husband who agreed to go with me at 530 in the morning, who helped me set up, and staffed the table throughout the morning, who walked the 5 K walk with our group, and who carried all of our supplies back and forth. I truly thank him for always supporting Komen and my work with JUNTAS! If appropriate, Please thank him the next time you see him without him I would not be doing this work! We also thank Aida and Don Richardson for all of the hours they volunteered to help Komen. They were mainly responsible for the transportation of the walkers the busses and parking, and I am sure for so much more! Many saw Aida directing traffic in one of the lots! We missed her at the JUNTAS booth. We truly appreciate the great work they both did. Also, Connie Dudgeon extended her services to help make this event a big success! We are very proud of them all. Unfortunately, we only collected $65 in donations, so I am asking once again for a small donation ANY amount will be appreciated. You can still donate online or you can drop off cash or a check made out to Komen CS to my office anytime I can also pick up any donations.

More than 30 million Americans, about 1 in 8 people in the United States, claim Hispanic origin. They contribute to every walk of contemporary American life, while simultaneously preserving the unique customs and traditions of their ancestors. All Americans, regardless of national origin, celebrate the vibrant Hispanic American spirit that influences our Nation s art, music, food, and faiths. We also celebrate the practices of commitment to family, love of country, and respect for others, virtues that transcend ethnicity, reflect the American spirit, and are nobly exemplified in the Hispanic American community. The strong ties that Hispanic Americans maintain with their ancestral homeland remind us that the United States must pursue robust relations with its trading partners in Latin America and the Caribbean. The future of our hemisphere is closely tied to these relationships, and improving trade will play a vital role in building important links with our Hispanic neighbors. Main-taining open and free trade creates job opportunities and promotes economic growth, improving the welfare of every citizen in every land it touches. Thus, we will negotiate for freer markets, which will allow us the opportunity to obtain better protections for our hemisphere s environment and will promote political freedom throughout the region. We have a great opportunity before us. By working together, we can achieve a fully democratic hemisphere, bound together by good will, cultural understanding, and free trade. The many contributions of Hispanic Americans to our Nation will help us reach this important goal by helping connect our country with the Hispanic nations to our south. This month, we celebrate the talents, culture, and spirit of Hispanic Americans, which deeply enrich our country and bless our people. The Congress, by Public Law , has authorized and requested the President to issue annually a proclamation designating September 15 through October 15, as National Hispanic Heritage Month. I am proud to do so. NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim September 15 through October 15, 2001, as National Hispanic Heritage Month. I call upon all the people of the United States to observe this month with appropriate ceremonies and activities. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-eighth day of September, in the year of our Lord two thousand one, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and twenty-sixth. George W. Bush Homeowners Insurance? Cont. from page 19 and its contents after depreciation. Replacement cost is the amount it would take to replace or rebuild a home or repair damages with materials of similar kind and quality, without deducting for depreciation. It is important that consumers understand this distinction, Bell said. In the event of a covered loss, an actual cash value payout could be thousands of dollars lower than a benefit calculated at the replacement cost. The NAIC provides extensive information, tips and considerations regarding homeowners insurance on its consumer education Web site, Insure U (http:// The entire site is also available in Spanish (http:// espanol). Insurance Tips for Homeowners from the NAIC s Insure U Web Site Increase your insurance coverage as you enhance the value of your home and acquire expensive possessions, such as furniture, computers, stereos and televisions. In maintaining your residence, realize that you are liable for things that happen on your premises. Keep in mind that in many states you could be held legally responsible for the actions of anyone who drinks in your home and then has an accident in your house or after leaving it. Your policy should protect you against lawsuits due to these types of liability issues. As you acquire more valuables - jewelry, family heirlooms, antiques, art - consider purchasing an additional floater or rider to your policy to cover these special items. They re typically not covered by a basic homeowners or renters policy. It s a good idea to make an inventory of all of your personal property, along with a photograph or video of each room. Also, save your receipts for major items and keep them in a safe place away from your house or apartment. That will make it easier if you ever need to file a claim. Consumers also should protect themselves from being scammed by fake insurance companies selling bogus insurance policies, said Catherine J. Weatherford, NAIC Executive Vice President and CEO. All they need to do is take a few minutes to stop, call their state insurance department, and confirm that a company is legitimate and authorized to sell insurance in their state before purchasing insurance.

19 13 de septiembre - 20 de septiembre 2007 Bienes Raíces REAL ESTATE Page 19 Rosana Ramponi Broker Associate Prudential Professional, REALTORS Office: (719) Cell: (719) In today s market condition we are seeing properties on the market for many months, in some cases up to 6 to a year. But in many situations, we can t blame the market. As owners, we need to play a very important role in the sale of our homes. Here are a few tips to help your property stand out from the rest. 10 Ways to Make Your House More Salable 1. Get rid of clutter. Throw out or file stacks of newspapers and magazines. Pack away most of your small decorative items. Store out-of-season clothing to make closets seem roomier. Clean out the garage. 2. Wash your windows and screens to let more light into the interior. 3. Keep everything extra clean. Wash fingerprints from light switch plates. Mop and wax floors. Clean the stove and refrigerator. A clean house makes a better first impression and convinces buyers that the home has been well cared for. 4. Get rid of smells. Clean carpeting and drapes to eliminate cooking odors, smoke, and pet smells. Open the windows. 5. Put higher wattage bulbs in light sockets to make rooms seem brighter, especially basements and other dark rooms. Replace any burnt-out bulbs. 6. Make minor repairs that can create a bad impression. Small problems such as sticky doors, torn screens, cracked caulking, or a dripping faucet may seem trivial, but they ll give buyers the impression that the house isn t well maintained. 7. Tidy your yard. Cut the grass, rake the leaves, trim the bushes, and edge the walks. Put a pot or two of bright flowers near the entryway. 8. Patch holes in your driveway and reapply sealant, if applicable. 9. Clean your gutters. 10. Polish your front doorknob and door numbers. En el mercado inmobiliario de hoy en día, estamos viendo propiedades a la venta por muchos meses, en muchos casos hasta por 6 meses o un año. Pero en muchas situaciones, no siempre podemos culpar el mercado inmobiliario. Como propietarios, tenemos un papel muy importante en la venta de nuestra casa. Aquí hay algunas ideas para que su casa sobresalga en la multitud. 10 maneras para que su casa sea más comercial 1.Deshágase de aquello que le sobre. Tire los periódicos y revistas viejos. Empaque la mayoría de los adornos pequeños. Guarde la ropa que está fuera de temporada para que los armarios se vean más espaciosos. Limpie el garaje. 2. Lave las ventanas y persianas para que entre más luz al interior. 3. Mantenga todo impecable. Repase los interruptores de luz para sacar las huellas de dedos. Encere los pisos. Limpie la estufa y el refrigerador. Una casa limpia causa una mejor primera impresión y convence a los compradores de que ha estado bien cuidada. 4. Elimine los olores. Lave alfombras y cortinas para eliminar olores provenientes de la cocina y de las mascotas. Abra las ventanas. 5. Coloque lamparitas de mayor voltaje para que las habitaciones se vean más brillantes, en especial los sótanos y otros cuartos oscuros. Reemplace las lamparitas quemadas. 6. Realice reparaciones menores de desperfectos que puedan causar una mala impresión. Hay pequeños problemas, como puertas que se atascan, persianas rotas, juntas agrietadas o llaves que gotean, que parecen triviales pero le dan al comprador la impresión de que la casa no tuvo un buen mantenimiento. 7. Cuide su jardín. Corte el pasto, recoja las hojas, pode los arbustos, dé forma a los bordes de aceras y caminos. Coloque macetas con plantas de flores a la entrada. 8. Cubra los pozos que pueda haber en el acceso vehicular y aplique sellador nuevo de ser necesario. 9. Limpie sus canaletas o bajadas de agua. 10. Lustre los picaportes de las puertas de entrada y la placa exterior con el número de la casa. Homeowners Insurance? Cont. from page 7 Hurricane Katrina victims whose claims were denied because they lacked flood insurance. Many homeowners learned the hard way that their insurance policies did not provide flood protection, said Walter Bell, NAIC President and Alabama Insurance Commissioner. We strongly encourage consumers in floodprone areas to check whether they are properly covered. According to the NAIC, flood insurance polices are available from the federal government s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and are often sold by agents who sell homeowners insurance policies. The NAIC survey also revealed other misunderstandings when it comes to common loss situations - none of which are covered by standard homeowners insurance policies - such as: 68 percent think vehicles such as cars, boats and motorcycles stolen from or damaged on their property are covered. 51 percent think damages from a break in the water line on their property supplying water to their home are covered. 35 percent think damages from earthquakes are covered. Many homeowners could be seriously harmed financially by misunderstandings about their insurance, Bell said. It is critical that consumers look closely at their policies and ask their insurance agents detailed questions to become fully aware of what is, and what is not, covered. The NAIC survey revealed another type of potential misunderstanding. Twentyfour percent of respondents indicated their policies insured their homes for the actual cash value, while 64 percent said their policies covered the replacement cost. Another 12 percent said they did not know which type of coverage - actual cash value or replacement cost - they purchased. Actual cash value is the amount it would take to repair or replace damage to a home Cont. on page 18 Trust us with... Your Child's Eyes Vision Center For Children 2857 E.

20 Page de septiembre - 20 de septiembre 2007 Noticias Locales Local News El Grito! The Cry of Mexican Independence Mexicanos, viva México! El grito de independencia, the cry of independence, and the ringing of bells in town squares will sound throughout Mexico and Mexican communities on Wednesday, 15 September at 11 p.m. A day of festivities culminates in this emotional cry for freedom. The celebration remembers the courage of the Mexican people called to arms by Catholic priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla in Dolores, Guanajuato. Miguel Hidalgo and the beginning of the independence movement: (The head figure and chief instigator of the Mexican Independence movement was Miguel Hidalgo, the Creole parish priest of the small town of Dolores. Soon after becoming a priest, Hidalgo began to promote the idea of an uprising by the native and mixed-blood peasantry against wealthy Spanish land-owners and aristocrats. He even promoted fornication and other priests considered him a heretic, false priest. He realized the need for diversification of industrial activities in an area that had the mines of Guanajuato as its major business. At the same time, during his seven years at Dolores, Hidalgo promoted discussion groups at his house, where indígenas, mestizos, criollos, and peninsulares were all welcomed. The themes of these discussions were current events, to which Hidalgo added his own input of social and economic concerns. The independence movement was born out of these informal discussions and was directed against Spanish domination of political and economic life in New Spain.) In the early hours of September 16, 1810, father Hidalgo ( ), accompanied by several conspirators Iganacio Allende, Doña Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez- roused his congregation with the first grito and rang the bell of his little church, calling everyone to fight for liberty. This was the beginning of the Independence War, which lasted 10 years. Hidalgo exhorted his congregation to fight against hundreds of years of oppression and brutality at the hands of the hated gachupines, the Spanish ruling elites. The call spread out across the land sparking off the Mexican War of Independence. On September 27, 1821, Spain and Mexico ratified the Treaty of Córdoba granting independence from Spain. The treaty guaranteed the equality of all Mexicans, that Roman Catholicism would be the national religion and that Mexico would be a constitutional monarchy. Each year Mexicans the world over remember Hidalgo s first cry in the early hours of the 16 September and celebrate their freedom, but on the 15th not the 16th. Why the change? It s a simple answer, President Porfírio Diaz began the tradition as the 15th was his birthday! In Mexico City the day of fiesta culminates in the zócalo, Mexico s most famous plaza. Between 11 p.m. and midnight the bell that Father Hidalgo originally rung, now hanging in the President s tower, rings out and the names of the revolutionaries are read to the cheering crowd. Rather than a call to arms, this is a cry for freedom and the sound of gunfire is replaced by roar of fireworks. Cinco de Mayo, or May 5, is commonly confused with Mexican Independence Day; in fact, this day commemorates the Battle of Puebla between Mexican and French forces in y 908 N.
