Pikes Peak Theatre is waiting for
Mrs. Colorado
The 2005 Mrs. Colorado United States Pageant is looking
for the next Mrs. Colorado and excited about the upcoming
Mrs. Colorado United States Pageant that will be held June
18 at the Pikes Peak Theatre in Colorado Springs.
Festivities include a welcoming reception at the Briarhurst
Manor Estate, a fall fashion show, swimsuit competition,
evening gown competition, live entertainment, kid’s
performances andthe Peterson AFBHonor Guard.
The only requirements are that a woman is married and is
living with her husband, a citizen of the United States, is of
good moral character and is at least 21 years of age. There is
no talent competition. Even with a full time job and two
young children under the age of five Mandie Litton, Mrs.
Colorado 2004, is able to enjoy all that comes with being
Mrs. Colorado United States.

I wonder when we will see the 5th day of the 5th month of the
5th year fall in place again. Another 100 years if my math is
correct. We’ve come a long way in the last 100 years; I hope
that in the next hundred we can gain as much or more.
However, I’m not sure things will change that much as certain
groups still seem hell-bent on dismantling all that we have
Again, we see the so-called Christian Right in a frenzy over
many of our judges. They seem to be trying to dismantle the walls of separation between our
government, the judiciary and their interpretation of religion.
Just before 1905, there was another Christian edict to take over the government. Manifest
Destiny proclaimed that the Anglo Saxons in the eastern states had the divine right and privilege
to rule the United States from sea to sea, because they were the only ones who could selfgovern. Perceived as being incapable of self-government were Native Americans and those of
non-European origin.
Today’s attempts by religious fundamentalists to castigate judges and force Congress to enact
their agenda do not seem to be very different. So often we move forward and then some group
does its best to reverse the clock.
We must continue to be vigilant and Cinco de Mayo is a time to celebrate what we have
achieved, to note where we are losing ground and reflect on what we have left to do.
And for those anglophiles who do not understand the history of our country, Cinco de Mayo is
not a foreign holiday and is not celebrated throughout México, apart from locally in the city of
Puebla. Chicano activists adopted the Cinco de Mayo celebration in the 1970s.
The bottom line of the Cinco story is the coming together of all people for La Causa, for a
cause. The uniting of all, irrespective of race or religious beliefs.
Maybe this Cinco we can help some of our neighbors remember that creed, but I know we’ll
have a tough fight.
You may notice that Mr. Doug Bruce, one of our distinguished El Paso County Commissioners,
did not participate in the El Paso County commemoration of El Cinco de Mayo. He abstained
from voting on the resolution and left before we had time to take a photo. I do not know why he
did not wish to participate, perhaps some of you can inquire.
No matter, it is time to enjoy.
If you are among the lucky ones that have someone that cares for you and about you, count
your blessings and go out and celebrate Cinco de Mayo.

Grupos antiinmigrantes
iniciaron esta semana un intenso
cabildeo en Washington que
incluye visitas al Congreso,
conferencias de prensa y la
presencia de 18 locutores que
transmitirán sus programas en vivo
desde la capital.
La serie de eventos, organizados
por el presentador de radio en San

oponerse a esfuerzos de
legalización de inmigrantes
indocumentados, como el plan de
visas temporales del presidente
George W. Bush.
En la cita participarán Chris
Simcox y Jim Gilchrist,
organizadores del proyecto
“cazainmigrantes” conocido como

vigila la frontera entre Estados
Unidos y México para detectar a
inmigrantes indocumentados.

denunciado las actividades de

la retórica de odio contra esas
personas. “Lo que nos preocupa
más es que toda esa fealdad no va
a llevarnos a soluciones políticas”,
dijo al diario The Washington
Times la vicepresidenta del
Consejo Nacional de La Raza,
Cecilia Muñoz. Una de las
preocupaciones principales de
grupos es la evaluación por parte
de la Cámara de Representantes y
el Senado de dos proyectos de
gastos suplementarios para tropas
en Irak y Afganistán, uno de las
cuales incluye la propuesta
antiinmigrante “Real ID”.
La propuesta busca limitar las

New Pope says thanks,
overlooks Hispanic
By Patricia Montemurri
To the bewilderment of
journalists from Latin America,
where most of the world’s
Catholics live; he neglected to
say any words in Spanish.
“Thanks to all of you, these
historically important ecclesial
events have had worldwide
coverage. I know how hard you
have worked, far away from your
homes and families, for long
hours and in sometimes difficult
conditions,” the new pope said.
“In my own name, and
especially on behalf of Catholics
living far from Rome who were
able to participate in these
stirring moments for our faith as
they were taking place, I thank
you for all you have done,” said
the pontiff, who until a few days
ago was known as Cardinal
Joseph Ratzinger.
Although the
pontiff is said to
have excellent
skills, the absence
of any comments
perplexed some
in the crowd of
more than 1,000
reporters and
hundred pilgrims
staffers who were
granted access to
next to St. Peter’s Basilica.
“For us, it was a mistake,” said
Maria Antonieta Flores, a
journalist with Il Publico in
Guadalajara, Mexico. “We
wanted him to speak in Spanish.”
The pope’s
appearance in Pope
Paul VI Hall lasted
about 15 minutes.
He also blessed
those assembled,
asking them to join
him in reciting the
Lord’s Prayer in

priests and archbishops greeted

More than 26 years ago, on the
day before Polish Cardinal Karol
inaugurated as Pope John Paul II,
he staged a similar news media
event in the Apostolic Palace, but
came down into the audience to
shake hands and take reporters’
questions, recalled Victor
Simpson, now the Vatican bureau
chief for the Associated Press,
who was there in 1978.
Orazio Petrosillo, the Vatican
writer for the Rome daily
newspaper Il Messaggero, who
covered the media debuts of both
popes, said Saturday that
Benedict XVI’s style is more
reserved than his predecessor’s.
“He’s not going to kiss babies,
little girls and little boys like
John Paul II,” said Petrosillo.
logistically difficult to do an
“How could he take questions
from a crowd of 6,000 people,”
said Foley, referring to the
“He’s shy. It’s a trait that
sometimes inhibits him.”
But Petrosillo said the Vatican
press corps always has been
treated well by Ratzinger during
the 24 years he served as the
Vatican’s chief enforcer of
Catholic teaching as director of
the Congregation for the
Doctrine of the Faith.
“He answered every question
and was very friendly, very open.
... He always gave us serious,
complete answers,” Petrosillo
Archbishop John Foley, the
American prelate who heads the
Vatican’s Pontifical Council of
Social Communications, said the
size of Saturday’s crowd made it
capacity of the hall, which was
about half full. “That’s not a
conference. That’s a mob.”
The pope emerged promptly at
11 a.m. to sustained applause,
holding out his hands in greeting.
Some young people started
rhythmically shouting his name
in Italian, pausing at syllables
and clapping.
The pope raised his hand in a
signal to stop and, when that
didn’t work, silenced the crowd
by starting to say the Sign of the
In part of his message, he
described how news coverage

“made a grave error” in
excluding Spanish.
Marcos Parraga, a journalist
from Ecuador with Univision,
said, “The Latin world is the
most faithful and the pope didn’t
speak Spanish.”
The Rev. Guillermo Marco, a
spokesman for Cardinal Jorge
Bergoglio of Buenos Aires,
Argentina, also was at the event.
Marco said he was told by
Archbishop Foley that, although
“it would have been nice” for
Benedict to speak in Spanish,

New focus on federal contracting
The US Small Business
Administration, the Office of
Management and Budget, General
Services Administration and the
Department of Defense has
revamped the Central Contractor
Registration (CCR) database to
give the SBA oversight over the
small business designation process
and to more accurately monitor
contract awards going to small
“This upgrade to the CCR
database will improve upon the
accuracy of the federal
government’s reporting of small
business achievements and will
allow the SBA to monitor and
confirm the companies’ small
business status,” said SBA
Administrator Hector V. Barreto.
The enhancement is Phase II
in the merger of the Dynamic
Small Business Search, formerly
known as Pro-Net into the CCR
database. CCR is an online
business portal that assists small
businesses with marketing their
goods and services to the federal
contractors and helps federal
agencies and prime contractors
seek out small businesses for
contracting opportunities. The
overall effort falls under the
auspices of the Integrated
Acquisition Environment (IAE),
which is one of the E-Gov
initiatives managed by the GSA.
Effective today, small
businesses will no longer be able
to self certify on the CCR database
as a SBA-certified small
disadvantaged business, 8(a)certified business or HUBZonecertified business. Adjustments
will be made to all of the small
businesses’ Trading Partner

Wells Fargo donates funds
to local school districts
President Gene Sullivan and Senior Vice President Don Weiss from
Wells Fargo Bank Colorado Springs will attend the April 27 School
District 11 Board of Education meeting to present the school district
with a check in the amount of $12,275. The meeting will take place at
6:30 pm, April 27 at 1115 N El Paso Street.
Wells Fargo & Company will donate $16,435 to five
school districts in the Pikes Peak Region through its Team
Up for Our Schools program, which was created in 2003
to help support public schools during times of significant
budget cuts. Through Team Up, Wells Fargo has donated
a two-year combined total of approximately $303,000
to school districts throughout Colorado, including those
in Colorado Springs, Monument and Woodland Park.
“Wells Fargo is pleased to make a Team Up for Our
Schools donation for the second year to our local school
districts on behalf of our team members, our customers
and the community,” says Sullivan.
“The Team Up for Our Schools program offers a
terrific opportunity to support the success of students by
bringing Wells Fargo team members and the community
together with local schools in an effort to improve the
quality of education.” The $16,435 donation was based
on the number of qualifying Wells Fargo consumer
checking account packages opened last summer at Wells
Fargo stores located within the school district.
A Wells Fargo checking package is a checking account
plus three additional services, which could include Direct
Deposit, Wells Fargo Online Bill Pay, and a Wells Fargo
Credit Card with the Wells Fargo Enhanced Rewards
program. School districts receiving the grants are:
Academy 20, $1,945; Cheyenne Mountain 12, $565;
Colorado Springs 11, $12,275; Lewis Palmer 38, $1,215;
Woodland Park RE-2, $435.

Backlog reduces at USCIS
U.S. Citizenship and
Immigration Services (USCIS)
announced today that the backlog
has continued to decline for the
processing of immigration benefits
such as work authorization,
permanent residency and
naturalization. In the latest update
issued to Congress, USCIS
reported the backlog, which had
reached a high of 3.8 million cases
in January 2004, was reduced to
1.5 million cases as of September
30, 2004. In all, USCIS has
reduced the backlog by more than
2.3 million cases during fiscal year
“Today’s announcement
continues the trend of showing
eliminating our backlog,” said
USCIS Director Eduardo Aguirre.
“However, USCIS will not rest on
past success, but rather use it as a
springboard to overcome the
challenges that lie ahead. We will
continue to realign our workforce
with our workload to ensure that
we meet the six-month cycle time
target at every office for every
form type by the end of fiscal year
Highlighting the latest report to
Congress was the record number
of case completions. In all, USCIS
officers completed almost 2.2
million cases during the fourth
quarter while receiving nearly 1.3
million new cases. By completing
900,000 more cases than received,
USCIS accomplished the most
productive quarter in the Agency’s

backlog elimination progress to

are handled first. This concept is
highlighted by the current USCIS
practice of deciding Petitions for

closer to the date on which a visa
will become available.
The report also noted a reduction
in cycle times for a number of
services and benefits. For
example, the cycle time for the
Replacement of a Green Card (I90) is now 5.4 months. At the
beginning of fiscal year 2004, the
cycle time for this same service
was 12.7 months.
Former POW speaks at Penrose Library
An American World War II prisoner tells his story of The Great Escape Many fascinating stories
of The Great Escape have been told since the end of World War II.
Come hear the story of Lieutenant Colonel A. P. Clark, the first air combat personnel captured in
US uniform by the Germans.
In his thirty-three months in the infamous prisoner of war camp Stalag Luft III, Lieutenant Colonel
Clark was involved in and responsible for directing escape work among American prisoners.
The stark photographs he took from the inside with a pinhole camera accentuate his tale of courage
and perseverance.

Cinco de Mayo
How & why we celebrate Cinco de Mayo
Cinco de Mayo is more than
just a fiesta, it is a date of
significant importance for the
Mexican community.
• Cinco de Mayo commemorates
the victory of the Mexican army
on May 5, 1862, over the French
army at the Battle of Puebla.
• Although the Mexican army
was eventually defeated when
the French reinvaded, the date
came to represent a symbol of
Mexican unity and patriotism
celebrated with authentic
Mexican food and drink, and
festivities to be enjoyed with
friends and family.

Cinco de Mayo
The significance of Cinco de Mayo
The Mexican holiday known as
Cinco de Mayo is widely
misconstrued in the USA, even by
people of Mexican descent. Many
people are unaware of the origin
and significance of Cinco de
Mayo, they simply see it as an
opportunity to go out and get
drunk on cheap Mexican beer.
Despite its commercialization, this
holiday is of great importance to
many people.
The biggest misconception
about Cinco de Mayo is that it
Independence Day. México’ s
Independence Day is celebrated on
September 16 and celebrates the
events that took place in 1810 and
lead to independence from Spain.
Cinco de Mayo commemorates
a victory by Mexican troops in La
Batalla de Puebla over an invading
French force on May 5, 1862.
From the time of Mexican
Independence in 1821 to this battle
in 1862, México suffered
numerous setbacks in its attempts
to form a stable republic and
endured several incursions into its
Fifteen years into its
independence, Texas seceded.
Anglos who had emigrated from
the United States to México led the
Texan revolt.
The revolt
eventually led to the MexicanAmerican War (1846-1848), a war
the US won. México was forced
to surrender approximately half of
its territory to the United States.
After the war and the secession
of Texas, México underwent a
severe economic crisis during the
1850s. In 1861, President Benito
Juárez halted payments on
Mexican foreign debt, much of it
owed to France. Shortly
thereafter, France sent troops to
México to secure payment of its
At the time, the French Army of
Napoleon III was considered the
most powerful army in the world
and had enjoyed victories
throughout Europe and Asia. The
French expected to march from the
port city of Veracruz to Mexico
City without encountering
Juárez sent troops under the
command of General Ignacio
Zaragosa to Puebla to confront the
French. The Mexican force of
4,700 consisted almost entirely of
indigenous soldiers who were
severely under-equipped. The
French numbered 5,200.
La Batalla de Puebla raged for
two hours after which the French
were forced to retreat to Orizaba.
Despite the tremendous odds, the
Mexican Army defeated the most
powerful fighting unit in the
One year after La Batalla de
Puebla, the French brought in
more troops and re-attacked. This
time they made their way to
Mexico City, took the capital, and
installed Emperor Maximilian of
Hapsburg as the reigning monarch
of México. Maximilian ruled
México for approximately four
years, until his execution in 1867
by troops loyal to President Juárez,
who regained power.
Although La Batalla de Puebla
on Cinco de Mayo was rendered
militarily insignificant by France’s
subsequent victory, it did inject the
Mexican people with pride and
patriotism never before enjoyed.
La Batalla de Puebla was the
first time that the Mexican pueblo
could rally around a common
cause and proudly proclaim, “¡Yo
soy Mexicano!”
Cinco de Mayo is not celebrated
in México to the same extent that
it is by Chicanos in the US, mainly
because 16 de septiembre is seen
as the more important holiday.
The reason that Chicanos celebrate
the holiday is that they appreciate
its cultural significance — victory
in the face of great odds and the
patriotism it generated — more
that its historical relevance.
Perhaps as importantly, General
Ignacio Zaragosa, the leader at La
Batalla de Puebla was born in
Texas while it was still part of
México. He is considered by
many to be the first Chicano hero.
Some scholars believe that if the
French had defeated México at
Puebla, France would have aided
the southern states in the American
Civil War to free southern ports
blockaded by the Union. At this
time, Confederate General Robert
E. Lee was enjoying success and
French intervention could have
influenced the Civil War. Even
those who are not of Mexican
descent have an indirect reason to
celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
Whatever the reason you
celebrate it is important to realize
that this holiday does have
historical and cultural significance
to millions.
So, have fun, but don’t forget
that el Cinco de Mayo remembers
a time when a people had nothing
but hope, fortitude and courage.
Against the most powerful force
of its time, they prevailed.

sociedades establecieron una
guardia de vigilantes, con la
finalidad de proteger sus hogares
hasta que el orden se estableció
en la parte suroeste de los
Estados Unidos. Entonces se
volvieron en sociedades de tipo
social. Fueron estas sociedades
las que contribuyeron en gran
parte con financiamiento para el
Mexicano en su lucha contra la
Monarquía Imperial Mexicana.
En 1858, Benito Juárez fue
elegido Presidente de los Estados
Unidos Mexicanos para defender
la Constitución establecida el 5
de febrero de 1857. Después de
varias luchas internas, Juárez fue
reelecto en 1861. Debido a la
inestabilidad financiera, causada
por la guerra mexicanoamericana, el Congreso
Mexicano acordó suspender los
pagos de la deuda exterior
durante dos años.
Los acreedores en Europa
(Inglaterra, España y Francia)
decidieron que la intervención
sería la mejor manera de cobrarse
la deuda. Francia tenía su propia
agenda, la cual era desconocida
por Inglaterra y España.
Napoleón III, Emperador del
Segundo Imperio Francés quería
establecer una monarquía
favorable para Francia, y
asimismo, quería disolver el
Mexicano. Sus planes de
grandiosidad consistían en
extender esta monarquía hasta
Centro y Sudamérica para
proveer de materia prima y
comercio a Europa y al mismo
tiempo estar cerca de la
República de los Estados Unidos
la cual crecía en poder después
de anexar California, Nuevo
México y Arizona.
Los designios descabellados de
Francia fueron fomentados y
terratenientes plutocráticos y los
conservadores de México que
temían perder su poderío y sus
tierras al nuevo gobierno
constitucional del Presidente
Juárez. El 8 de diciembre de
1861, los poderes europeos
desembarcaron en el Puerto de
Veracruz y lo ocuparon, siendo
España la primera en llegar. Para
el 11 de abril de 1862 España e
Inglaterra se enteraron de las
intenciones de Francia y
embarcándose hacia Europa.
Mientras tanto, en la ciudad de
México, el Presidente Juárez
(indio zapoteca que se había
licenciado como abogado y había
estudiado para el sacerdocio)
contrarrestar la invasión: “El
gobierno de la República...en
vista de la declaración de los
plenipotenciarios franceses, no
puede ni debe hacer otra cosa que
rechazar la fuerza con la fuerza
y defender a la nación de la
agresión injusta con la que se la
amenaza. ...Tengamos fe en la
justicia de nuestra causa...
haciendo triunfar no sólo a
nuestra patria, sino a los
principios de respeto y de
inviolabilidad de la soberanía de
las naciones” (1). El Presidente
Juárez declaró la ley marcial en
todas las áreas ocupadas por los
franceses en estado de sitio.
Cuando llegaron las tropas de
refuerzo francesas, el ejército se
componía de (7.000) siete mil
soldados que salieron en la ruta
de (225) doscientas veinticinco
millas hacia la ciudad de México
a principios de abril con la ilusión
de que los mexicanos les darían
la bienvenida. Esta ilusión fue
nutrida por Juan N. Almonte, un
reaccionario mexicano, y por el
Conde Dubois de Saligny, el
embajador francés, nombrado
por Napoleón. El Presidente
Juárez le dio la orden al General
Ignacio Zaragoza de detener el
avance de las fuerzas armadas
francesas en los fuertes de Loreto
y Guadalupe cerca de la ciudad
de Puebla. Zaragoza contaba con
sólo (2,000) dos mil hombres.
El 5 de mayo de 1862, los
cañones resonaron y los rifles
dispararon y más de (1,000) mil
soldados franceses cayeron
muertos. Los mexicanos habían

La revista Hispanic Meetings

para informar y educar a la

El informe “Minority Traveler

América (TIA) en 2003 confirmó
que el viajero hispano
verdaderamente constituye un
segmento de mercado rentable.
Suzanne Cook, Vicepresidente
Senior de Investigación y
Tecnología en TIA en 2004,
observó que “los hispanoestadounidenses
representan el grupo minoritario
más grande de EE.UU. y generan
el mayor volumen de viajes. Los
hispanoestadounidenses han crecido
significativamente, alrededor de
20% entre 2000 y 2002
solamente, momento en que el

Como parte de las iniciativas de

Las estadísticas muestran que estamos más determinados que nunca en obtener los beneficios
nutritivos de una comida echa con ingredientes nutritivos y frescos.
En realidad el único problema es logístico. Con los días tan apresurados y llenos de actividades,
a veces es difícil encontrar tiempo para incluir estás comidas en nuestra vida.
La solución muchas veces está en cocinar platillos nutritivos que faciliten la preparación como
puede ser en un guisado completo. Al preparar la comida de esta manera, seguirá manteniendo su
buena reputación y todo en 30 minutos, o menos.
El maíz súper dulce es una de las verduras que a todo el mundo le gusta que sea parte de estos
platillos completos. Poco a poco la gente se ha acostumbrado a que la temporada de esta variedad
no solo sea durante el verano sino todo el año, lo que permite contar con ella para prepararlos en
guisados en cualquier momento.
Además, este maíz se cose increíblemente rápido. Le puede cortar los granos, pero es mas
rápido si lo prepara entero, o en pedazos, solo golpeé la mazorca con el filo de un cuchillo para
El maíz súper dulce es vendido casi siempre bajo la cáscara, sin embargo algunos supermercados

Cinco de Mayo
Avocado jazzes up plain Jane dinners
(NAPSA) It’s a snap to make an ordinary quick dinner extraordinary. The trick? Give old standards a flavor boost with ingredients like luscious avocados from Mexico,
a handful of chopped cilantro and a zippy dressing. With a lovely golden green color and velvety-smooth texture, nutrient-dense avocados brighten the look of any dish
while adding divine taste.
For example, toss cubes of buttery avocado from Mexico with already-cooked chicken and bottled salad dressing and serve over a rice and black bean salad with lettuce
and tomato. It’s delicious, satisfying and no work! Other ways to easily and quickly transform a plain Jane dish into something special: Wrap scrambled eggs, shredded
Cheddar cheese and slices of avocado in flour tortillas and serve with bottled salsa; scatter a mix of avocado cubes, sliced scallions and black olives tossed with hot sauce
over plain cheese pizza or top a burger with a slice of pepper Jack cheese, dollop of BBQ sauce and slices of avocado from Mexico.
Chicken and avocados over rice salad
3 cups cooked rice
1 can (19-ounce) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup chopped fresh tomato
1 cup shredded lettuce
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 cup prepared oil and vinegar salad dressing, divided
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
2 fully ripened avocados from Mexico, halved, pitted, peeled
and cut in 1-inch cubes
Express dinner:
Creamy sliced avocado from Mexico, bottled
and cilantro transform cooked chicken and rice
into a main dish salad that’s destined to become
a family favorite.
In a large bowl, combine rice, beans, tomato, lettuce, cilantro and half of the salad dressing; toss. Spoon on a platter lined with lettuce, if desired. In the same bowl,
combine chicken, avocados and remaining dressing. Spoon over rice salad. Makes six portions.

Chaos + Debauchery =
Important and profound theater
In conjunction with the Visual
and Performing Arts Department
of UCCS, the Theatre ‘d Art will

thru May 15.
The New Plan will run four
performances only. Friday, May

Sunday, May 15 at 8 pm. There
will be a matinee Saturday May

Ubu Rex will also be
performed four times with
evening performances Saturday,
May 7; Sunday, May 8; and
Friday, May 13 at 8 pm. A
matinee will take place Saturday,
May 14 at 2 pm. The doors to
the theater for all shows will be
open one half hour before the
show is supposed to start.
Tickets are free, though seating
is very limited and donations are
There will be a special V.I.P.
lounge and seating available for
patrons who donate. All shows
take place in the Osborne Studio
Theater inside University Hall at
UCCS, located at 3955
Cragwood Drive (near the corner
of Union and Austin Bluffs).
Call 719-262-3232, or email
[email protected] for
more information.
This year’s productions of Ubu
Rex and The New Plan will mark
the second foray into Colorado
Spring’s wide and wacky world
of theater for the fine
organization known as the
Theatre ‘d Art. Last year, the
Theatre ‘d Art, also in
conjunction with UCCS,
presented Purple Skies Over
Vietnam and Ogres in the Office,
two mostly original plays that
took the theater-going populous
by storm. These two plays razed
the limits of traditional theater by
sporting theatre high-jacking
terroristas, multiple surprise
endings, and enough corn made
out of construction paper to
drown three samurai stage
managers. This year, theatrical
chaos and cardboard props will
once again reign supreme Ubu
Rex and The New Plan stand to
shatter yet more standards of the
stage. Gone are the days when
the actors know the full script.
Done are the times, when male
roles are given to… males.
Ubu Rex, written by the great
Alfred Jarry, is the fantastically
obscene story of Pa and Ma Ubu
who, with the help of their many
Phallodins, conquer Poland, steal
a heap of money, and murder a
gob of peasants and Russians.
However, director Jon Margheim
has re-interpreted this timehonored tale of love and
sacrifice, and inserted a few pink
flamingoes, a whole mess of
puppets, and a cross-dressing
cast. Pa Ubu will be played by
the irrepressible Tammy Smith
and his/ her wife Ma Ubu, will
be played by Doug Chartier.
Never has the Osborne Studio
Theater seen so much duct-tape
and cardboard. Never has a giant
man-eating bear so aptly tortured
a PBR encrusted Phallodin.
The New Plan is a new play,
written and directed by Brian
Mann, who is also responsible
for last year’s Ogres in the Office,
and at least some of Purple Skies
Over Vietnam. The New Plan
appears at first to be the story of
a typical hard-boiled private
investigator, hotly embroiled in
heated arguments with his hot
secretary about whether or not he
should get up off his cold rear-
end and throw himself into the
flames of yet another blazingly
ridiculous missing husband case.
Then all hell breaks loose and
flaming hotdogs, mountain men
and a few thousand telephones
have their way with him… or is
it even him? He doesn’t even
know any more, and he probably
shouldn’t care. The eternal
questions of identity, guns, love,
cigarettes, and the general
unpredictability of life and
theater will be met with fierce
resistance in The New Plan.
Though almost entirely
comprised of students, Theatre ‘d
Art promises to put on quite a
show. Admission is free, but
donations are accepted. Seating
is limited so arrive early. For

Joven de corazón pero
todavía en riesgo
Los activos miembros de la
generación de los “Baby
Boomers” (la generación de los
años sesentas) que le tienen pánico
al “envejecer” pueden seguir unos
simples pasos en su estilo de vida.
“En cuanto envejecemos, los
riesgos a nuestra salud aumentan”
dice el Dr. Lawrence Chan,
Catedrático de Medicina y de
Biología Molecular y Celular.
También Jefe del departamento
de Diabetes, Endocrinología y
Metabolismo en el CBM.
“Hoy en día los “Baby
Boomers” pueden disminuir los
riesgos de enfermedad asociados
con la vejez al adoptar un estilo
de vida más saludable”.
La Sociedad Norteamericana
Contra el Cáncer, la Asociación
Estadounidense Contra la Diabetes
y la Asociación Norteamericana
recientemente cuatro guías que
pueden reducir los riesgos de
desarrollar el cáncer, la diabetes,
la enfermedad del corazón y las
embolias cerebrales.
El Dr. Chan incentiva a los
Baby Boomers para que alcancen
su peso ideal, pero advierte que un
cuerpo delgado no siempre indica
una salud de primera calidad.
Visitas regulares a un médico
son necesarias para evaluar los
riesgos en la salud de un individuo.

Air-con, the best invention of the last 75 years
(NAPSA) The most influential
innovation of the past 75 years
wasn’t the cell phone. It wasn’t
the personal computer. It wasn’t
even television. It was airconditioning.
That’s the finding of an online
poll conducted by AOL and The
Henry Ford historical institution.
Since air-conditioning is so
important, homeowners should
consider several factors before
replacing an old system.
The experts at York¨ Heating
and Cooling recommend hiring
a licensed contractor to evaluate
the home heating and cooling
recommendations for a new
system. The inspection should
- Making sure the ductwork was
installed properly and sized
- Ensuring the unit is
operating properly and
- Checking to ensure that
filters are properly sized

replacing the condensing
unit, it is important that the
homeowner replace the indoor
coil also to ensure that they
receive the maximum efficiency
from their new unit. If it’s too
large, it will cycle on and off
more frequently, over cooling
and under dehumidifying the
space and increasing energy
usage. If the air-conditioning unit
is properly sized, it will
experience longer run times at
design conditions, providing
dehumidification and lowering
energy bills.
When purchasing a new
system, it is also important to
check the unit’s seasonal energy
efficiency ratio (SEER) and to
take a look at what energy-saving
features it may have before
purchasing it. The higher the
SEER number, the more energy
efficient the unit is and the more

a reverse mortgage may allow you
A reverse mortgage is a loan in
to use your home as an asset and which the lender pays you.
Payment can be in a lump sum, a
monthly advance, a line of credit
or a combination of all three.
In turn, you continue to live in
your home and retain title to your
home and are responsible for the
maintenance and real estate taxes.
Depending on the plan you
select, your reverse mortgage
becomes due with interest when
you move, sell your home, reach
the end of a pre-selected loan
period or die.
To qualify for a reverse

debt loans. The interest is added
to the principal loan balance each
month, because it is not paid on a
current basis. The amount you
owe increases over time as the
interest compounds.
• Reverse mortgages use up some
or all the equity in your home,
leaving fewer assets for you and
your heirs.
• The three types of reverse
mortgages—FHA-insured, lenderinsured and uninsured—vary
according to their costs and terms.
• There are fees associated with
reverse mortgages such as loanorigination fees, closing costs, in
some cases there are also insurance
premiums to pay as well as
mortgage servicing fees.
• Your legal obligation to repay
the loan is limited by the value of
your home at the time the loan is
repaid. Under the federal Truth
in Lending Act (TILA) lenders are
required to disclose the costs and
terms of reverse mortgages.

“There is no limit to what we can

some of the tastiest rides rollin’ and
stars of MTV’s “Pimp My Ride.”
And while Chevrolet had barely

the new 2006 HHR at the 2005
Greater Los Angeles Auto Show, it
was joined on stage by a WCC
concept version with all of its
pimpin’ magic. The WCC HHR
represents a radical vision of the new
Chevy HHR.
The production HHR has a distinct
design that fuses elements of the
1949 Chevy Suburban – the original
utility vehicle – and the SSR
roadster. It is built on the same solid
platform as the new Chevy Cobalt.
The HHR will be available in the
second half of 2005.
“We are lucky to work on all kinds
of cool rides, and add the WCC touch
in a variety of ways,” said Ryan
Friedlinghaus, owner operator and
head guru of WCC. “The HHR is one
of those vehicles that allows you to
customize it mild or wild.”
And customize wild they did. The
WCC gang took a full-on deep dive
into customizing this concept
vehicle, and significantly modified
both the exterior and interior to draw
attention to the new HHR.
One of the fantastic styling cues is
the chopped top — three inches to
be exact. Shaved door handles all
around, huge sunroof, custom rear
roll-pan with center-mounted
exhaust and all-new front fascia are
just a few tweaks to the WCC HHR.
The custom package is covered in a
special House of Color silver/blue
pearl coat with mica-finish that gives
the distinct look of fiber optic
“WCC and GM Design worked on
giving the WCC concept HHR an
outrageously different attitude and
the front and rear really deliver on
the WCC flare,” said Clay Dean,
Director of Design for Small/
Midsize Cars. “There are so many
styling possibilities on how this
vehicle can be personalized.
This WCC vision may be over the top, but it demonstrates the creativity HHR offers to personalize it your way.”
To complement the modified styling cues, WCC gave the concept HHR some suspension flexibility with a rear air bag suspension. Large
20” Giovanna wheels wrapped in Pirelli tires hide large 12” Stainless Steel Brake Corporation brakes.
WCC has converted the five-passenger HHR into a ride with leather-trimmed bucket seats to accommodate the four lucky occupants.
Suede, two-tone leather and body color matching interior trim
welcome those who enjoy audio and video entertainment at its finest. KEN'S COMPLETE AUTO REPAIR

Civic Hybrid delivers economy and near zero emissions
The Honda Civic Hybrid, the
first mainstream gasoline-electric
hybrid vehicle sold in North
America, enters its third year on
the market as a fuel economy,
technology leader. Honda led all
other automakers in consumer
registrations of hybrid vehicles in
calendar year 2003 with 23,048
Civic and Insight hybrid vehicle
registrations combined, according
to registration data released by
R.L. Polk & Company.
The Civic Hybrid alone
accounted for half of all hybrid
vehicles registrations in 2003.
According to R.L. Polk data,
registrations rose 25.8 percent in
2003 versus 2002, while Honda
Civic registrations doubled.
The Civic Hybrid’s amazing fuel
economy remains unchanged for
the 2005 model year. The Hybrid
CVT ULEV has earned an EPA
city/highway rating of 48/47 mpg.
By the same measure, the 5-speed
manual achieves a city/highway
rating of 46/51 mpg. Both models
have a range of more than 600
miles. Civic models sold in
California and certain northeastern
states qualify at Advanced
Emissions (AT-PZEV) vehicles.
The Civic Hybrid uses Honda’s
Integrated Motor Assist (IMA)
technology, employing a 1.3-liter
i-DSI 4-cylinder gasoline engine
coupled with a high output electric
motor to provide excellent
performance and fuel efficiency.
The system’s compact nickelmetal hydride battery module is
automatically recharged during
braking and deceleration.
The hybrid system provides up to
93 horsepower and 116 lb-ft of
torque with the electric motor
“assist.” Fuel economy is
improved by up to 30 percent
compared to other Civic sedans.
All this is achieved by the hybrid
powertrain while still meeting the
stringent AT-PZEV standard.
The Civic Hybrid comes
equipped with a long list of
standard features including power
windows, door locks and mirrors;
cruise control; Immobilizer antitheft device; dual stage, dualthreshold driver and front
passenger air bags; and a tilt
steering wheel. For 2005, the Civic
Hybrid adds a new exterior color:
Eternal Blue Pearl.
Honda was the first automaker
to introduce gas-electric hybrid
consumers when it launched the
Honda Insight in December 1999,
followed by the Civic Hybrid in
March 2002. Together, the Insight
and Civic Hybrid captured four of
the top five slots in the 2004 EPA
fuel economy ratings. The 2005
Honda Insight has earned the
highest EPA fuel economy rating
for any passenger car for the fifth
consecutive year.
The EPA rates the Honda Insight
city/highway fuel economy at 60/
66 mpg and the Civic Hybrid city/
highway fuel economy at 46/51
mpg (manual transmission
