Hillary Clinton busca
voto latino en S.A. con
apoyo de Julián Castro
Por Lucy Almanza
[email protected]
La aspirante demócrata a la
presidencia de Estados Unidos,
Hillary Rodham Clinton, visitó
la ciudad del Álamo este jueves
en busca de atraer el voto latino.
El Secretario de Vivienda y
Desarrollo Urbano Julián Castro,
quien ha sido señalado como
posible aspirante a la vicepresi­
dencia, estuvo presente y anun­
ció oficialmente su respaldo a la
campaña de la ex primera dama
durante el evento.
“La diferencia con los candi­
datos republicanos es que ella
respeta a la comunidad latina”,
destacó Castro, quien despertó
los gritos y aplausos de las dece­
nas de personas que se reunie­ron
en el histórico Sunset Station
como parte de la iniciativa “La­
tinos for Hillary,” diseñada para
promover la campaña en la co­
munidad latina.
En el evento, Clinton también
fue acompañada por el con­
gresista Joaquín Castro y pudo
disfrutar de bailes folclóricos y
música de Selena, así como ver a
sus fieles seguidores levantando
pancartas con mensajes como
“La Hillary”, “Estoy contigo” y
“Latinos por H”.
Antes de su llegada al mitin en
el Sunset Station, la candidata
de 67 años, tuvo una sesión de
preguntas y respuestas con Javier
Palomarez, presidente y CEO de
la Cámara de Comercio Hispana
de Estados Unidos.
Al ser cuestionada sobre la
posibilidad de pensar en el ex
alcalde de San Antonio como vi­
cepresidente, Clinton respondió:
“Estoy muy emocionada de tener
su apoyo hoy, tanto él como su
hermano están entre los mejores
lideres jóvenes en América. Voy
a seguirlo muy de cerca en todo
porque él es así de bueno”.
Hoy en día, el voto latino es
fundamental en la elección presi­
dencial. De acuerdo a Palomarez,
cada 30 segundos, un latino se
convierte en un votante elegible
en Estados Unidos, aproxima­
damente 58 mil nuevos votantes
cada mes, por lo que la ex secre­
taria de Estado invita a que todos
los jóvenes votantes salgan a
votar en la próxima elección para
que sus voces se hagan escuchar.
“Voy a continuar a tener con­
versaciones y escuchar las prio­
ridades de la comunidad hispana,
como la creación de mejores
empleos, aumentar los salarios,
mejorar la educación y el cui­
dado de salud”, comentó Clinton.
La candidata recordó los
meses que vivió en San Antonio
hace 43 años, por lo que recon­
oce las múltiples contribuciones
que la comunidad hispana ha
logrado en el país y dijo que los
latinos “son nuestros vecinos,
nuestros amigos y nuestras fa­
milias”.
Clinton prometió impulsar
la reforma migratoria integral
de inmediato si llega a la Casa
Blanca.
“La inmigración es buena para
Estados Unidos. La inmigración
construyó a nuestro país. Me
a­trevo a decir que la gran mayo­
ría de los estadounidenses tiene
un padre inmigrante, un abuelo
o bisabuelo inmigrante como yo.
Una reforma migratoria integral
en la que podamos sacar a la
gente de la sombras será bueno
para nuestra economía para au­
mentar los salarios y crear más
oportunidades”, señaló Clinton.
La candidata destacó que los
inmigrantes indocumentados
contribuyen con 12 mil millones
de dólares al año al fondo de la
seguridad social; sin embargo, no
pueden ser beneficiados.
“Una reforma migratoria in­
tegral podría mejorar el mer­
cado laboral y los trabajadores
indocumentados dejarían de ser
explotados y su contribución
ascendería a más de 20 mil mil­
lones de dólares”, declaró Clinton

UIW unveils Fine Arts Complex
By Natalie Bobadilla
[email protected]
The University of the Incarnate
Word celebrated the official grand
opening of their new Fine Arts
Complex with a ribbon cutting
ceremony Wednesday morning.
The 55,000-square-foot facil­
ity is composed of a new music
building, a renovated art building
and a revamped auditorium that
dates back to 1928.
“There’s nothing that makes
me more pleased than to have
this iconic corner on Broadway
and Hildebrand have the finest
facilities for music and art for a
university our size,” UIW Presi­
dent Dr. Louis Agnese said during
the ceremony. “There’s no faculty
that deserves it more and most
importantly, there are no students
that deserve it more.”
The three-story music building
features a 100 seat recital hall, as
well as choir and band rehearsal
halls. The building also offers a
recording studio, a music therapy
suite with clinical sessions avail­
able to the community, a piano
lab, an iMac lab, modular prac­
tice rooms, a percussion studio,
teaching studios for private les­
sons, two general classrooms, an
instrument storage facility and a
listening library.
William Gokelman, chair of
UIW’s Department of Music who
has worked for the university for
more than two decades, said the
music building was a long time
coming.
“The students remember what
it’s like to have a marimba les­
son in the hallway with 50 other
people crowded on top of each
other,” Gokelman said. “One
time, I came in to work and there
was a cello lesson going on in the
stairwell, I fully expected there to
be a private lesson going on in the
restroom one day because there
just was no space.”
With the new music building,
Gokelman expects the programs
in the music department to grow.
“Walking into a choir room that
is actually a choir room and not
a classroom is a beautiful thing,”
he added.

torium has been transformed
App encourages young
adults to quit smoking
By Christina Acosta
[email protected]
If are interested in kicking the
smoking habit, there is a new app
that will allow you to think before
you take another puff.
This week, the UT Health
Science Center in San Antonio
(UTHSCSA) has launched Quitxt,
an app for people from the ages
of 18-29 to quit smoking. The
app is free and culturally relevant
towards text messaging and online
support service that targets young
Latinos in San Antonio and across
South Texas to quit smoking.
Funding from the Cancer Pre­
vention and Research Institute
of Texas and the endorsement of
the San Antonio Scorpions soccer
team, SA2020, and other busi­
nesses and health groups have
joined forces to bring the app to
the community.
Amelie Rodriguez, Dr.P.H.,
study leader and director of the
Institute for Health Promotion
Research in the School of Medi­
cine at the UTHSCSA, explained

LA PRENSA DE SAN ANTONIO
Comentarios... 2055 y la ola asiática
Con tantos
ataques a los
inmigrantes en
Estados Unidos
durante la actual
campaña por la
Jorge Ramos presidencia, lo
menos que quie­
ren oír muchos estadounidenses es
que su país va a cambiar aún más.
Pero esa es la noticia. Agárrense.
Sí, Estados Unidos va en camino
de convertirse en uno de los países
más diversos y multiculturales del
mundo. Y eso ha ocurrido debido
a la entrada de muchísimos inmi­
grantes.
Aquí están las cifras: En los úl­
timos 50 años ha aumentado a 45
millones el número de extranjeros
viviendo en Estados Unidos, y
en los próximos 50 años esa cifra
aumentará a 78 millones, según un
visionario estudio del Pew Research
Center. Es decir, el porcentaje de
inmigrantes viviendo en Estados
Unidos pasará del 15 por ciento
actual a casi un 18 por ciento del
total de la población.
Lo que esto significa es que en
este país habrá caras nuevas, acentos
distintos, muchas combinaciones de
culturas, y comida, música y arte
de todo el orbe. Estados Unidos,
la principal potencia económica y
militar está a punto de convertirse
en una especie de resumen plan­
etario. Si en medio siglo llegaran
extraterrestres y quisieran un tour
muy rápido de cómo es el mundo,
bastaría una visita a Los Ángeles,
Miami y Nueva York.
El gran cambio vendrá aproxima­
damente en el año 2055.
En ese año, más o menos, los
blancos (no hispanos) dejarán de ser
mayoría en Estados Unidos. Todos
blancos, afroamericanos, hispanos y
asiáticos — seremos minoría.
Otro gran cambio que vendrá en
el 2055 es que en Estados Unidos
habrá más inmigrantes de países
asiáticos: China, India, Filipinas,
Corea y Vietnam, entre otros, que
de naciones de América Latina. De
hecho, ese cambio ya lo estamos
vien­do hoy. En el 2013 entraron más
inmigrantes de China (147,000) y de
la India (129,000) que de México
(125,000), según el diario The Wall
Street Journal.
La ola latina está dando paso a la
ola asiática.
Eso va a implicar enormes dosis
de tolerancia y negociación. De la
misma forma en que hoy Donald
Trump está atacando a los inmi­
grantes latinoamericanos, no me
extrañaría que en el 2055 surgiera
un candidato presidencial que se
pusiera a atacar a los inmigrantes
asiáticos para ganar votos.
Desde luego no se podría cons­
truir una muralla con China como
propone Trump con México, pero
podrían resurgir terribles ejemplos
de la historia. No podemos olvidar
que en 1882 Estados Unidos creó
una ley para evitar la entrada de
inmigrantes chinos a California y
el oeste del país.
Los científicos sociales de Pew
nos han permitido ver el futuro. Su
trabajo ha sido extraordinario. Lo
que nos están diciendo es que el
crecimiento poblacional de Estados
Unidos dependerá cada vez más de
los inmigrantes. Esto es un duro
golpe para quienes quieren limitar el
número de extranjeros en este país.
La realidad es que en los próxi­
mos 50 años van a entrar a Estados
Unidos un millón y medio de perso­
nas, en promedio, cada año. Por eso
es urgente que tengamos un nuevo
sistema migratorio que pueda pro­
cesar legalmente a los inmigrantes
que ya están aquí y los millones que
están por llegar.
Estados Unidos es un imán para
inmigrantes y eso no va a cambiar.
Es absolutamente absurdo pensar
en deportaciones masivas. Trump
quiere deportar a 11 millones en dos
años — cuando el país requiere de
manos y mentes inmigrantes para
seguir creciendo económicamente.
Las ideas de Trump van en contra
del rumbo de la historia.
El 2055 promete ser un año de
grandes cambios. Acabo de hacer la
cuenta y, si me va muy bien, tendría
97 años de edad. Así que lo más
probable es que no me va a tocar
verlo ni a mí ni, qué pena, a muchos
de ustedes.
No hay excusas. Ya nos lo advirti­
eron. Estados Unidos es un país de
inmigrantes y millones más están a
punto de llegar. La ola asiática está
comenzando.
De lo que se trata es de estar pre­
parados para darles la bienvenida.

Just a Thought: “National Make a Difference Day”
Oct. 24 we
celebrate “Na­
tional Make
a Difference
Day,” a world­
wide commu­
nity service
effort.
Steve Walker
USA Wee­
kend Maga­
zine, together with Points of Light,
a charity that mobilizes and enables
people to make a significant differ­
ence in people’s lives, organized the
celebration.
For more than two decades, the
day has been the largest national
day of community service. On the
fourth Saturday of October, millions
of volunteers around the world unite
in a common mission to improve
the lives of others. It was designed
specifically to celebrate the power of
people to contribute to changing the
world in a positive way.
I was surprised to learn recently
that there was actually a “National
Make a Difference Day.” When I
reflect on my own life, speculating
if I made a difference in this world, I
wonder if I succeeded. I think back
on my former student’s lives, having
taught in the public school system
for 26 years, and I pause.
Back then, those students would
share their dreams to make a dif­
ference, of wanting to be a doctor,
nurse, policeman, or firefighter-- to
be able to literally save lives and
“make a difference.” How many La
Prensa readers have, at one time, had
those thoughts and never expressed
them to anybody?
Now that we know there is a
dedicated day to acknowledge those
desires we have, we can celebrate
along with millions around the
world to make those differences a
reality.
Recently one of my former ninth
graders at McCollum High School,
Joseph Medina, was elected to the
Northside School Board. I ran into
him at an event just before he was
elected. We reminisced and he told
me I was one of his favorite teachers
who made a difference in his life. I
was thrilled to say the least.
San Antonio also is the home
of numerous Latino Scholars who
make a difference every day in peo­
ple’s lives. Dr. Manny Berriozabal,
UTSA math instructor is the founder
of the San Antonio Prefreshmen
Engineering Program established
in 1979. It has been extremely suc­
cessful. His wife Maria, is a former
SA Councilwoman who has made
a difference in her own right. I have
written on her more than once in
my column.
Doctor Ellen Riojas Clark, a pro­
fessor of bicultural, bilingual studies
at UTSA since 1973, developed
summer institutes on Latino Lit­
erature that have been very popular
over the years with the Latino com­
munity. That makes a difference in
numerous student’s lives.
Dr. Henry Flores, a political
science professor at St. Mary’s
University, graduate of Central
Catholic and a Vietnam veteran like
myself, is also known for his exper­
tise in voting and civil rights. He is
frequently sought out by the media
for his observations on various local
races in the election cycle. I have had
the pleasure of visiting and sharing a
cup of coffee with him on a number
of occasions.
Although Oct. 24 is officially
“National Make a Difference Day,”
it doesn’t preclude the reader from
making every day, a day to make a
difference in somebody’s life.
Anyway, as always, what I write
is “Just a Thought.”
Steve Walker is a Vietnam Veteran, former Judge and Journalist.
from going into effect on Oct. 1 as
planned. In the order, Judge Sulak
stated that, if the injunction was
not granted, “the minor children
represented in this lawsuit, plus
thousands of other Texas children
receiving pediatric services under
the Texas Medicaid program, will
probably be deprived of those criti­
cal services.”
Make no mistake, if these cuts
are allowed to continue our most
vulnerable children will face dire
consequences. Children’s lives may
hang in the balance.
For my part, I will continue to
lead opposition efforts at the state
level and will be working closely
with Congressman Joaquin Castro
and my federal counterparts to be
sure that the Center for Medicaid
and Medicare Services (CMS) is
fully aware of the devastating ef­
fect that these cuts will have on
Texas—CMS also has the ability
to stop these cuts.
This fight is not over and it is
crucial that we do not lose mo­
mentum as the lawsuit works its
way through the courts. Making
your voice heard will make all the
difference. Already, nearly 3,000
people have signed Miranda’s
Petition. You can join the fight
by signing your name to the peti­
tion, which can be accessed on my
Facebook page at www.facebook.
com/TMFTx.
I pray that justice will be done
and I hope that hard-hearted, shortsighted legislators will see the evil
in these cuts and take actions to
reverse them. But, mostly, I pray
that God grant me the wisdom and
the strength to live up to my duty
as an elected representative.
I will do my best to humbly live
up to the Holy Pontiff’s charge to
all elected officials- to protect those
who are most vulnerable.
Principles and Political Society
Last month,
I was deeply
honored to be
in attendance
as His Holi­
ness Pope
Trey Martinez Francis cele­
Fischer
brated his first
public Mass in the United States at
the Basilica of the National Shrine
of the Immaculate Conception in
Washington, D.C.
On the following day, His Holi­
ness Pope Francis became the first
pontiff in history to speak to a
joint meeting of Congress, and his
message to elected officials deeply
resonated with me.
His Holiness spoke a simple,
unalterable truth. In his words,
“a political society endures when
it seeks, as a vocation, to satisfy
common needs by stimulating the
growth of all its members, espe­
cially those in situations of greater
vulnerability or risk. Legislative
activity is always based on care for
the people. To this you have been
invited, called and convened by
those who elected you.”
This powerful statement is the
bedrock principle of my life. It is
my job to protect my constituents
and all Texans regardless of their
gender, wealth, ethnicity, or social
class. And, I should take special
care to protect the least among us.
For much of the past decade,
the leaders of Texas have failed at
taking care of the least fortunate
among us. Nowhere is this more
obvious than our current budget,
which seeks to cut funding to
disabled children by 350 million
dollars, jeopardizing not only the
quality of life of disabled children
but their health as well.
On Friday, Sept. 25, State Dis­
trict Judge Tim Sulak issued a tem­
porary injunction blocking the cuts
Secuestro de la Cámara Baja del Congreso
Por Humberto Caspa
Después de la renuncia de John
Boehner como jefe de la Cámara
de Representantes del Congreso
son pocos los republicanos que
se animan a reemplazarlo. Kevin
McCarthy, jefe de su partido
político, dijo que no está intere­
sado. Paul Ryan, excandidato a
la vicepresidencia, está conside­
rando no aceptar por cuestiones
“familiares”.
¿Qué es lo que sucede? Ningún
representante republicano de re­
nombre y con años de servicio en
la Cámara Baja está dispuesto a
tomar parte de un puesto político
que, después del presidente, es
el más importante del sistema
político norteamericano.
Se necesita el apoyo de 218
votos de un total de 435 represen­
tantes para elegir al máximo líder
de la Cámara de Representantes
del Congreso. En este momento,
los representantes republica­
nos gozan de una mayoría con
247 miembros, mientras que los
demócratas tienen 188 represen­
tantes. Es decir, el Líder de la Cá­
mara Baja forzosamente tiene que
provenir del Partido Republicano.
Sin embargo, la elección de esta
persona (Speaker of the House of
Representatives) no es tan fácil
como lo pintan. El hecho de que
los republicanos tienen una mayo­
ría no quiere decir que cualquiera
de los representantes puede ser
elegido para tomar esta posición
política dentro del Congreso.
Al igual que la sociedad, existe
una variedad de grupos de interés
(caucuses) dentro de la Cámara de
Representantes, quienes inciden
específicamente en el nombra­
miento del máximo líder y, algu­
nas veces, en los proyectos de ley
que se gestan en el Congreso. Es­
tos grupos de interés se forma en
base a inclinaciones étnicas, como
el Hispanic caucus, Black caucus,
Asian caucus; o pueden también
tener inclinaciones ideológicas,
como Blue Dog Coalition, New
Democrat Coalition, Republican
Study Committee, Liberty caucus
y Freedom caucus, entre otros.
Este último, el Freedom caucus,
está compuesto por 40 miembros
y prácticamente controla las elec­
ciones del líder principal de la
Cámara de Representantes. Todos
sus miembros son productos de
distritos electorales dominados
por el Tea Party. Fue este grupo
el que presionó la renuncia de
John Boehner, y fueron también
ellos quienes se opusieron a la
candidatura de Kevin McCarthy.
Y posiblemente es esta gente
quienes no miran con buenos
ojos la llegada de Paul Ryan a la
jefatura de la Cámara de Repre­
sentantes.
En este sentido, la Cámara de
Representantes y, por ende, el
Congreso, está secuestrada por
un grupo cohesivo radical que “no
muerde ni deja morder” “no hace
nada ni deja hacer algo”. Durante
la Administración Obama, esta
gente también se opuso a todos
sus proyecto ejecutivos, incluy­
endo a una reforma migratoria
integral.
En las elecciones de noviem­
bre del próximo año no solo se
elige al presidente, sino también
a una variedad de representantes
a nivel local y nacional. Entre
estos políticos, nosotros elegimos
a nuestros representantes. Por
eso es importante educarse con
relación a la agenda de cada uno
de los políticos. No vaya a ser que,
por falta de información, estemos
apoyando a uno de los miembros
del Freedom Caucus.

Home-style cooking and hospitality make it an Alamo city
dining destination of choice
DeWese’s Tip Top Café start­
ed in 1938 by serving the best in
food, hospitality and home-style
cooking like your abuelita used to
make. That’s been the landmark
restaurant’s catch phrase for
seven-plus decades.
A lot of that success has come
from being a part of the commu­
nity and making customers feel
like family when they come
in and sit at their favorite
table or one of those nostal­
gic booths. “Setting the table
for Mayors and mechanics,
they’re all family to us”, says
third generation owner Linda
DeWese, whose grandfather
Pappy DeWese started the diner.
Monday, Oct. 19, through
Monday, Oct. 26, both Tip Top
Café locations – the original
at 2814 Fredericksburg Road
(78201) and second location
at 13835 Nacogdoches Road
(78217) – are helping raise mon­
ey for the Survivors Scholarship
Fund for children of slain police
and firefighters through a part­
nership with the 100 Club of San
Antonio.
For the next eight days, every­
one is encouraged to visit and dine
in on the award-winning chicken
fried steak that has put the vener­
able eatery on the culinary map
earning kudos
in Texas
High­
ways magazine and being fea­
tured on the Food Network.
In partnership with the 100
Club of San Antonio, 15 percent
of all chicken fried steak sales
during this campaign will benefit
the nonprofit organization that’s
been around since 1973. The Tip
Top Café’s masterfulness with
the iconic Texas dish was not
lost on the City of San Antonio,
which issued a City Proclama­
tion in honor of the iconic diners
and their community enrichment
efforts on behalf of the 100 Club
of San Antonio.
Tip Top Café patrons who dine
on Monday, Oct. 26, will do so on
Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day,
an actual state holiday. The new
second location also offers fully
loaded nachos as well as regional
dishes such as Steak Tampiqueña.
Eating for a good cause never
tasted better.

Special to La Prensa
Julio Riojas was called to

AH
OR

Julio was employed by the
San Antonio Independent School
District as a music instructor,

into a 500-seat concert hall with
state-of-the-art acoustics. The
mezzanine has been converted to
a lecture hall for fine arts classes.
Gokelman said the new concert
hall is not only beneficial to stu­
dents, but it also fills a niche in
the community.
“This is now a mid-size concert
hall that the city of San Antonio
did not have,” Gokelman said.
The concert hall already has
four clients, including Youth
Orchestra of San Antonio and the
San Antonio International Piano
Competition.
Miguel Cortinas, chair of the
Department of Art at UIW, said
the art building renovations and
expansion were highly needed.
When he began working at UIW
15 years ago, there were seven
graduating art students; in recent
years, that number has more than
tripled.
“The timeliness of this renova­
tion is important,” Cortinas said.
“Having the new facilities is
going to make that growth much
easier to address.”
Quit smoking...
that the purpose for the app was
to stop young kids from smoking
at a young age.
“It is a little bit higher here, so
we really thought we needed to be
doing something because this is a
group that is going to continue up
taking to prevent critical diseases
such as cancer and other health
problems so we really want them
to tackle that,” explained Dr.
Ramirez.
Over time, the rate among
young kids smoking in South Tex­
as has increased while the rate of
adults smoking has decreased—
something to critically analyze.
According to UTHSCSA, tobacco
kills about 3,000 people in South
Texas annually.
Smoking rates are high among
Mexican Americans along the
border and across South Texas,
and few accessible regional pro­
grams target the issue. According
to research completed by the
UTHSCSA, the rates for young
adults are anywhere between 23
and up to 26 percent.

and other fun and helpful infor­
mation to keep going,” added Dr.
Ramirez. “So, of the support mes­
sages will allow them to learn how
to get motivated and how they can
build a team to support them to
quit and to find other alternatives
to smoking.”
Now that Quitxt has been in­
troduced in South Texas, Dr.
Ramirez hopes that in the future,
the app will continue to expand.
Creating an app as a resource to
quit smoking could not only be
a model to help those smoking,
but to also help those with other
addictions.
“We would like to advance
because this is a form of technol­
ogy that is widely used. We are
currently recruiting on Facebook
and other social media outlets to
get people to come online,” said
Dr. Ramirez. “We feel we could
use this time we also think to use
this type of approach for other
health issues as well.”
If you or someone you know
would like to quit smoking, text
“iquit” to 57682.

In order to reach out to a younger
audience, Quitxt is a program that
carries many resources and tools
to encourage young adults from

Fuerza de voluntad cura drogadicción y alcoholismo
Por José I. Franco
[email protected]
Vaya que me dio gusto enterar­
me que dos de mis conocidos,
por su fuerza de voluntad y amor
a sus seres queridos les regresó
su estado de sobriedad.
Aunque ustedes, mis tres lec­
tores, no lo crean, en este testi­
monio les diré francamente que
tras habérseme informado sobre
las recaídas que tuvieron dos
de mis conocidos, uno que por
curiosidad se tiró al vicio del
consumo de heroína y el otro
inhalando cocaína, dejando atrás
unos buenos años que dedicaron
a la sobriedad, sus retornos al
estado sobrio me tomaron por
sorpresa.
Ambos estuvieron consumien­
do drogas fuertes, las cuales
nunca se puede determinar en
qué momento pueden causar
daño físico y mental, así como
repentina muerte.
Su recuperación, de acuerdo
a sus familiares, fue gracias a la
fuerza de voluntad por retomar
sus vidas y seguir viendo la luz
día con día. No he logrado tener
contacto con ambos, porque no
se ha dado la oportunidad, ya
que ellos retornen al grupo al que
pertenecemos, entonces serán
ellos quienes den sus respectivos
testimonios.

tento que ambos estén con bien
y que se han incorporado al seno
familiar. Su fuerza de voluntad
viene a ser una buena nota para
los que somos creyentes de que
con amor a la familia, y en uno
mismo, las adicciones se pueden
curar.
Prueba de ello fue que el
pasado martes (13 de octubre),
en cuanto entré a mi oficina, la

Medicare.
El individuo se presentó con
el nombre de Fernando, una per­
sona mayor, quien de inmedia­to
se identificó como lector de
La Prensa. Don Fernando, tras
haberme orientado sobre el asun­
to de pagos al Tío Sam por recibir
los beneficios del Medicare, que
en verdad son excelentes y de
gran ayuda al presupuesto fami­
liar, me dijo ser ferviente creyen­
te (sin mencionar religión).
Él, con orgullo, dijo ser nativo
de la Ciudad de México y con 45
años de residencia en esta gran
nación, apegado a las leyes y
tradiciones, y quien se desem­
peñó ejemplarmente dentro de
la fuerza laboral, donde dejó es­
tablecido un plan económico que
hoy se encuentra disfrutando al
lado de la compañera de su vida.
“Soy uno de sus tres lectores
y por ello me decidí hablarle y
darle mi punto de vista sobre los
pagos que todavía uno tiene que
hacer al gobierno federal, los
cuales salen de nuestras respec­
tivas pensiones. Nada es gratis,
todo beneficio tiene un costo,
aunque pequeño pero se tiene
que pagar”, así se expresó don
Fernando.
En cuanto al problema de las
adicciones, él me dijo sentirse
todavía impactado porque varios
de sus conocidos (en su nativa
Ciudad de México) se entregaron
al alcoholismo, destruyéndose y
a la vez dañando a sus familias.
“Yo soy creyente, por lo que
mi opinión es que todos los que
se dicen ser alcohólicos, ellos
sí tienen fuerza de voluntad y
aman a su familia, se pueden
curar. Si el individuo lo decide,
él se puede curar de adicciones y
alcoholismo. Claro que sí puede
lograrlo”, enfatizó don Fernando.
Por mis 16 años de sobriedad,
puedo asegurar que las palabras
de don Fernando son ciertas,
todo está en uno mismo. Como
lo he dicho en varias ocasiones,
lo que me sigue ayudando en mi
estado de sobriedad es el amor a
mi familia y de quienes me ro­
dean. No me opongo al consumo
de drogas o bebidas alcohólicas.
Las personas son libres en sus
decisiones; sin embargo, para
evitar tragedias, se tiene que ser
prudente y ver de qué forma se
puede evitar ponerse frente al
volante en estado inconveniente.
Gracias al Creador Divino

October ushers in ‘National Domestic
Violence Awareness Month’
By Kristian Jaime
[email protected]
In cases of domestic violence,
the facts are not always clear as
defendants and complainants are
often from the same family.
In light of the surge in domestic
violence cases in Bexar County,
County Court #7 became the
home of many of these proceed­
ings. The caseload quickly grew
exponentially and soon necessi­
tated the establishing of County
Court #13.
“Several years ago, most of the
cases were spread out throughout
the county courts. The cases have
to be treated differently because
we have complainants that are
usually family members,” said
Judge Eugenia “Genie” Wright,
presiding Judge of Bexar County
Court #7.
For the 132 victims who lost
their lives to domestic violence,
the justice system was not re­
sponsive enough. Yet the nature
of the many of these cases makes
then especially difficult to pros­
ecute.
That number is startling
enough, but considering that
total is from 2014, cases have
only risen.
“These cases take longer to
work up since the police aren’t
usually involved till after the fact.
The police don’t usually make
the arrest as in a DWI. It requires
talking to the victim to see if you
actually have a case,” continued
Judge Wright.
Among the many intricacies in
establishing a case is convincing
the victim that a crime has even
occurred. Unlike other potential
prosecutions, the victims of the
abuse are often manipulated into
protecting the abuser.
According to the Texas Coun­
cil on Family Violence, there
were 185,817 family violence
incidents in Texas just a year
ago—a number that includes
spouses and children.
“We have many instances
when a complaint is made and the
very next day, they don’t want to
proceed. We have finally reached
a point where we can pursue these
cases even if the complainant
does not want to,” Judge Wright
continued.
Another consideration is the
life of the family after their day in
court. Once the defendant returns
to their life, the likelihood of fall­
ing back into abusive patterns is
a real danger.
The question for both courts
and law enforcement is how to
do so.
“We worry that even after
the case is heard, that the com­
plainant will remain safe. There
were so many family violence
cases coming to Court #7, that
we needed another one to here
them in court #13,” Judge Wright
said.
For family advocates, the nu­
merous factors that contrib­
ute to domestic violence range
from drug and alcohol addiction,
mental health issues, and even
economic stress. For that reason,
instances of domestic violence
are more prevalent in lower so­
cioeconomic demographics.
For Bexar County and the
surrounding areas, that means a
surge in an already full docket.
“We both get between 140
to 190 new cases a month. We
haven’t seen a reduction in the
number of cases since we’ve
started hearing them and the
biggest difference is the rising
number of women that are de­
fendants,” the Judge continued.
Perhaps the biggest difference
in the cases heard in County
Court #7 and #13 is that it is about
keeping families together. While
much of the attention in cases of
domestic violence is detaining the
defendant, it is also about treating
the reasons behind the abuse.
According to Judge Wright,
there are options for treatment.
“We can offer the defendants
classes, therapy, and counsel­
ing through our intervention
programs to drug programs and
probation. Even Child Protective
Services offers parenting class­
es,” Judge Wright concluded.
Ultimately, domestic violence
is an issue many people face in
their lives and there is a solution
if it is not too late. For more in­
formation on National Domestic
Violence Awareness Month, visit

This
Week In
Sports
By Jose Arredondo
Queen
Dynasty
In the WNBA, it’s never an unpredictable outcome during their
championship series every season.
The Minnesota Lynx won their
third WNBA title in five years.
While having a fantasy team-like
roster filled with the brightest superstars, winning the title this year
was hardly a surprise.
Minnesota took on Tamika
Catchings and the Indiana Fever.
Last night was game five in Minnesota. This was Minnesota’s
toughest series ever in their playoff
history. Superstar Maya Moore
has been struggling with her shot
and Lindsey Whalen was playing
through a sprained ankle.
Lynx forward Slyvia Fowles
put up 20 points and 11 rebounds.
Rebekkah Brunson grabbed 14
rebounds and Seimone Agustus
put up 16 points. Although Whalen
was hurt and Moore couldn’t knock
down a shot, the rest of the Lynx
roster carried the team to victory.
This Lynx team has been playing
so well together the past couple
of years, they look like they are
the NBA’s Golden State Warriors
playing amongst high school basketball teams. Some have called
the Lynx roster unfair and some
have called them a good group
put together by a good front office.
Whatever the case may be, the
Lynx are not a team with whom
to mess. Minnesota fans may love
having their team wining all the
time but with their constant success, fans across the league have
actually lost interest in the league.
With all the amazing athletes that
are in this league, fans want to see
more excitement not college recreational center like games.
Maybe the Lynx winning another title this year might just actually
be what the league needs to push
the other team to be as dominant
and exciting to keep up with fan
demands.
It’s not easy being in a women’s
league and so making it on the same
entertainment level as the NFL and
NBA in this country. Misogynistic
views against female sports are
still very much alive against the
WNBA. That just means they need
to step up and show just how good
the girls can really be. The United
States National Women’s soccer
team can’t do it on their own.
Women’s sports should be celebrated not tossed to the side just
cause your sister, daughter or whoever beat you at games of horse
when you or they were younger.
Instead, you should encourage
them because they have dreams
like male athletes to be the best and
be celebrated as the best.
So if I end up being the only
sports writer to congratulate you
outside of Minnesota, then so be it
because you did something great.
Congratulations Minnesota, next
year, our San Antonio Stars are
coming after you. See you next
summer.
Dallas Cowboys will start
Cassel after bye week
The San Antonio Spurs unveiled this past
Wednesday their black signature Spurs jerseys
that will be worn in their home opener against
the Brooklyn Nets as well as the season. According to Spurs press release, “The uniforms
feature silver panels with silver, black and
white trim and the accompanying shorts also
include the Spur logo on each side.”
Matt Cassel is no stranger to this situation.
Back in 2008, Cassel filled in for an injured
Tom Brady went 10-5. “I’m really excited,”
Cassel said Wednesday morning. “It’s an
opportunity and there’s no doubt about it – I
don’t take it for granted, I know how hard it
is to get on the field in this league.”
Emmitt Smith and MD Anderson
team up to tackle cancer

The Spurs unveil their
new uniforms
The University of Texas MD
Anderson Care Center held its
sixth annual “A Conversation
With a Living Legend” which
featured Hall of Fame running
back Emmitt Smith at the Marriott
Rivercenter this past Tuesday.
The luncheon benefited MD Anderson’s “Moon Shots Program.”
According to MDanderson.org,
the program is “a comprehensive,
accelerated effort to reduce cancer
deaths and transform cancer care.”
Smith made NFL history when
he became the NFL’s all-time
leader in rushing yards and touchdowns. Now he tries to make
cancer history.
Smith is one of the NFL’s greatest running backs of all time and
possesses an extensive résumé of
accomplishments that have made
him a living legend; however, at
age 46 the three-time Super Bowl
champion still remains humble.
“I don’t think much of it in
terms of being a living legend,”
Smith said. “I’m just glad to be
living.”
Smith praised MD Anderson
and the researchers as well as the
doctors within the program.
“There are a bunch of living
legends within MD Anderson you
just don’t know who they are,”
Smith said. “Guys like myself and
many others who are public figures, if you will, we get classified
because most people recognize
who we are and what we are able
to accomplish. The unsung heroes
are the men and woman who are
doing the research, the doctors
who are doing the trial testing.”
The MD Anderson Care Center
was ranked the number one hospital by the U.S. News & World
Report’s “Best Hospitals.” It has
received the top rank in 11 of the
last 14 years.
MD Anderson’s made it a mission
to “eliminate cancer in Texas, the
nation and the world through exceptional programs that integrate patient
care, research and prevention.”
Smith and his wife Pat have
accomplished a great deal off the
field with their organization “Pat
& Emmitt Smith Charities.” They
have teamed up with many nonprofits to “provide educational
and enrichment opportunities for
underserved.”
MD Anderson’s track record
and Smith’s life experiences made
it easier for him to collaborate with
“the top notch program,” as he
called it, for the charitable event.
“Having the experience of dealing with family members who lost
their life to cancer and watching my family members going
through those things, I think that
gives me a heartfelt connection,”
Smith said
In the past four years, Smith’s
older sister Marsha and father
Emmitt Smith Jr. were diagnosed
with cancer.
“My older sister Marsha was
diagnosed with breast cancer in
2011,” said Smith. “And my father
had his stint with prostate cancer.
Those are real time and real life
Emmitt Smith (left) answered questions from Sean Elliott (right) at “A Conversation With a Living
Legend” held at the Marriott Rivercenter this past Tuesday. (Photo, Jose Arredondo)
experiences.”
The obstacles and trials Smith’s
family endured made him appreciate life much more and have
inspired him as well.
“To watch them tackle cancer
with courage, conviction and
faith in a mighty, mighty way is
encouraging,” said Smith.
Former San Antonio Spur and
current color commentator for the
Spurs, Sean Elliott, interviewed
Smith for the luncheon. Elliott admitted he was nervous and didn’t
know what questions to ask Smith.
“It is an honor. I’ll be honest
with you. When I woke up this
morning, and what woke me up,
was all these questions that were
floating around my head, ‘What
can I ask him?’” Elliott said. “You
just don’t get a chance like this
every day to sit down and talk
to one of the greatest athletes of
all time.”
The event resonated with the
NBA champion who lost his
mother to cancer in 2014.
“It means a lot because I lost
my mother to cancer last year and
I saw how difficult it was for her
to deal with that,” Elliot said with
conviction.
The luncheon hosted 420 guests
and raised nearly $250,000 for
the Moon Shots program. Elliot
applauded the luncheon and the
impact it has on cancer research.
“Cancer is a horrible disease
and this is a great event to help
fund the MD Anderson Cancer
Center and help fund some more
research, so we are not losing our
mothers, our fathers, our brothers
and our sisters,” Elliot said.

Los Broncos de Reynosa S.A.,
que llevaban cuatro victorias
consecutivas en su serie del playoff contra Red Sox, estuvieron
a punto de ganar su segundo
partido para eliminarlos ya que
en el octavo episodio el lanzador
abridor Alfredo Rivas dejó el partido ganado 7 a 5 carreras, siendo
sustituido por Gilberto Rodríguez
Sr., quien aceptó racimo de siete
anotaciones y de paso cargó con
la derrota.
Por Red Sox se agenció la victoria José Espinoza, quien entró
al rescate del abridor derecho Calixto Moreno, quien por su parte
tuvo breve descontrol, pero con el
bate se discutió conectando imparable productor de una carrera que
fue anotada por Manny Sosa, que
desempató el partido 8-7.
El rally lo comenzó el bateador
Mario Ibarra que, por órdenes del
timonel Pedro Espinoza, tocó la
pelota para avanzar a corredor

strike, en su segundo intento con
el madero al hombro conectó potente elevado al jardín central que
rebasó al jardinero Bobby Eliott,
llegando a la antesala tras haber
puesto la pizarra 9-7.
Pablo García con imparable y
bases llenas puso la pizarra 127, siendo remolcado por Mario
Ibarra para finalmente anotar la
carrera número 13 que fue con lo
que amarraron la victoria (pizarra
final 13-7).
El mismo José Espinoza se destacó en la lomita haciendo el out
número 27. “Nuestros jugadores
se motivaron y explotaron con
su tremendo bateo. Red Sox para
el tercer partido tendrá la misma
alineación”, dijo el manager Espinoza.
Por su parte, el manager de
Broncos, Tomás Muñoz, exhortó:
“Un juego bonito hasta el séptimo
episodio. En el octavo decidimos
picharle a Castro, su batazo era
seguro de atrapar pero nuestro jardinero central cometió costoso error
y Red Sox se fue arriba. Creo que
Broncos ganarán el tercer partido”.
Linda Garza, gerente general de
Broncos de Reynosa S.A., dijo que
su equipo regresará como en las
ligas mayores. Además de seguir
jugando disciplinadamente y con
buen béisbol.
El tercer partido se jugará este
sábado 17 de octubre en el horario
de las 2 p.m. en el diamante Colt
45 Baseball Field.
Por su lado, el equipo Rieleros
abandonó la serie contra Colt
45 porque sus directivos no estuvieron de acuerdo con el fallo
en contra por una protesta que
antepusieron contra su rival del
playoff (Colt 45), que dirige Jaime
Guerrero y José Montes.
De acuerdo a Guerrero, basado
en reglamento, la protesta no prosperó por lo que su equipo ganó
10-5 el primero de tres partidos.
Rieleros a través de su vocero
Johnny López expresaron a La
Prensa que por estar en desacuerdo y “enchilados” decidieron no
seguir jugando el resto de su serie.
Guerrero, recapacitando, dio la
oportunidad de continuar la serie
de nuevo, pero ello no fue suficiente para convencer al alto mando
rielero. Por lo que Colt 45 está en
espera del ganador entre Red Sox
y Broncos de Reynosa.
En resultados de la liga dominical, Bobcats derrotaron 3-2 a Tigers, Colt 45 apaleó 14-1 a Cubs.

Archbishop prays emergency responders’ work ‘be
one of hope and healing, of peace and justice’
“Adiós a ese dinero”
Todays Catholic
Por Carlos Rey
Law enforcement personnel,
public safety officers, emergency
responders and firefighters were
recently thanked for their dedicated
service to the community at the 19th
annual Blue Mass.
The liturgy was celebrated by
Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller,
MSPS, and 10 priest concelebrants
at San Fernando Cathedral on
Sept. 29.
Honor Guard participants and departmental flag representatives led
the procession at the beginning of
the liturgy as the faithful, who filled
the cathedral sanctuary to capacity,
listening to a bagpipe rendition of
“Amazing Grace.”
In his homily, the archbishop
quoted from Pope Francis address to
the United Nations just the previous
week, “The common home of all
men and women must continue to
rise on the foundations of a right understanding of universal fraternity
and respect for the sacredness of
every human life, of every man and
every woman, the poor, the elderly,
children, the infirm, the unborn, the
unemployed, the abandoned, those
considered disposable because
they are only considered as part of
a statistic.”
During that pastoral visit, Archbishop Gustavo explained, the
Holy Father constantly reminded
everyone of their God-given mission to respect and protect the life
and dignity of all his people.
The archbishop then noted it was
providential that the faithful should
gather on the feast of God’s holy
archangels.
“They protect us from all that
would threaten our life,” said Archbishop Gustavo. “Each of us, regardless of our status, our past, our
present way of life; each of us is
loved and protected by God through
his angels.”
The San Antonio prelate emphasized that the Blue Mass was a
time to celebrate protectors of the
common good; protectors of the life
and dignity of God’s people. “To
all of the police, law enforcement
officers, and first responders, I say
‘thank you.’ On this the feast day of
your patrons, the archangels, I say
‘thank you,’” he said. “You have
sworn to protect and serve. I ask
you to take this moment and reflect
on what kind of protector you are
committed to being.”
Archbishop Gustavo stressed
that those who have been given the
public trust must constantly recall
the purpose of that trust. He again
cited Pope Francis in his recent
comments, “all are called to foster
and protect every human life, of every man and every woman, the poor,
the elderly, children, the infirm, the
unborn, the unemployed, the abandoned, those considered disposable
because they are only considered as
part of a statistic.”
The archbishop asked, “In your

“El esposo de mi amiga le
pidió dinero prestado a mi
esposo, argumentando que en
cuanto le fuera posible se lo
pagaría. Han transcurrido algunos meses y, en reuniones donde
todos asistimos, el esposo de mi
amiga... nunca le ha dado razón
del préstamo. Un día mi esposo
le envió un mensaje preguntándole al respecto, a lo cual respondió que le daba mucha pena
pero no le era posible pagarle
(por ahora) porque tenía gastos.
Han seguido pasando los meses, y no ha tenido ni siquiera
la atención de darle una explicación a mi esposo. Yo pienso
que mi amiga no tiene conocimiento de dicho préstamo,
pero sí me he dado cuenta de
que en actividades sociales que
representan un gasto siempre
participan, lo cual me hace
pensar que sí tienen la posibili-

work in serving the common good,
where can you be more attentive?
In what ways can you serve even
more faithfully than you already
have? Who is in most need of your
protection? Who may still be left on
the fringes?”
He replied, “These are difficult
questions that require us to look
honestly at ourselves. We have no
cause to fear these questions. We
have the confidence of those who
trust in the Lord.”
While we have been called to
serve the common good, each in our
own way, we know our true protector is God himself, Archbishop
Gustavo explained. “He has already
won the victory over darkness and
death. In him, light conquers the
darkness. In the light of the Lord,
may we look once more at where
we stand in the mission we have
been given.”
The archbishop concluded by
praying, “May Our Lady, Queen
of the Angels, guide you with her
prayers and her example. May
your patrons, the great Archangels
of God, always come to your aid
and to the aid of those you serve.
Together, may we trust in the Lord.
In the sight of the angels, may we
sing the praises of the Lord.”
dad de pagar. Quisiera que me
aconseje qué tan conveniente es
que yo le pregunte directamente
a mi amiga a fin de saber si
tienen la intención de pagar, o
si tenemos que decirle adiós a
ese dinero”.
Este es el consejo que le dio
mi esposa:
“Estimada amiga:
“... Las mujeres tienen la
tendencia y la reputación de
interferir en los conflictos de
sus esposos y de sus hijos.
Eso puede empeorar en vez de
mejorar muchas situaciones. El
préstamo fue entre su esposo
y el esposo de su amiga. ¡No
interfiera! Le rogamos que no le
diga nada a su amiga acerca del
préstamo. Si su esposo decide
que ella debe saberlo, entonces
él puede decírselo estando usted
presente.
Es muy arriesgado prestarle
dinero a alguien. Recomendamos que nunca haga un préstamo
de cantidad alguna de dinero, a
no ser que esté secretamente
dispuesta a obsequiarlo. Si ese
dinero le hace falta, entonces
jamás se lo preste a nadie.
Su esposo estaba tratando de
ser amable con el esposo de su
amiga, y la amabilidad es siempre buena. Sin embargo, no es
necesariamente amable prestar
dinero. El sabio Salomón dijo:
“Los deudores son esclavos
de sus acreedores”. El dar un
préstamo hace que el deudor se
convierta en un esclavo porque
lo obliga a trabajar para pagar la
deuda. Si por cualquier razón no
puede pagarla, evitará volver a
encontrarse con el prestamista.
Entonces, si no tiene esperanzas de poder saldarla, de ahí
en adelante no tendrá nada que
ver con él. Muchas amistades se
han deshecho como resultado de
deudas pendientes.
El prestarle dinero a un familiar o a un amigo puede acarrear mucho conflicto entre los
involucrados.... Hasta los gastos
más insignificantes pueden
llegar a ser motivo de análisis
o discusión en el seno de la familia del prestamista, y a veces
aún los amigos y los parientes
de éste se ven envueltos en el
conflicto.
De modo que sí. Dígale adiós
a ese dinero que prestó su esposo. Pero considérelo el precio
de haber aprendido una buena
lección para el futuro”.
“Dame entendimiento
para seguir
tus preceptos, pues
quiero meditar en tus
maravillas”

Special to La Prensa
Mayor Ivy R. Taylor recognized October as National Cyber
Security Awareness Month. With
a delegation representing the
local cybersecurity industry in
attendance on Thursday, Mayor
Taylor read a proclamation and
highlighted the importance of
cybersecurity as well as its impact
on the local economy.
In partnership with the Department of Homeland Security
(DHS), the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center
(MS-ISAC), the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) and the National
Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA),
Mayor Taylor and City Council
members showed their support of
promoting cyber security.
“San Antonio has the second
largest cluster of cybersecurity
assets in the country. We use
computers and the internet every
day, to make business more efficient, to manage information
and to communicate,” said Mayor
Taylor. “We recognize the ease
and power in that, but we also
understand that cyber threats could
impact our security and privacy.
San Antonio’s leadership in this
field is important for our nation’s
safety and also has a significant
impact on our economy.”
John Dickson, principal of
The Denim Group and a founder
of CyberSecurity San Antonio
– an industry-driven program
to accelerate the growth of the
cybersecurity sector – said, “We
have a shared responsibility to our
community to continue to foster,
incentivize and support the growth
of an industry that contributes to
national security and intelligence
and employs more than 10,000
people in San Antonio.”
“Our Shared Responsibility” is
the theme of this year’s cybersecurity campaign. The campaign
was implemented by several
private companies, nonprofit and
government organizations, and
academic institutions who want
to help citizens understand cyber
threats, empower them to be safer
and more secure while online and
improve security.

IWHS athletic director raises funds
for breast cancer prevention
Special to La Prensa
In an effort to raise awareness
for breast cancer, this fall Incarnate
Word High School (IWHS) Athletic Director, Coach April Fricke
is embarking on an historic ride for
a good cause.
For the second year in a row,
Fricke will be riding her bike along
the same route the first three Sisters
of Charity of the Incarnate Word
traveled from Freeport to San Antonio in 1869, approximately 250
miles. She will leave Freeport on
Saturday, Oct. 17 arriving in San
Antonio, at 10 a.m., Tuesday, Oct.
20 Incarnate Word High School,
727 East Hildebrand Avenue.
This is the second year Fricke has
undertaken this journey and with
support from the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word and the
Friends of CHRISTUS Santa Rosa
Foundation, Fricke hopes to raise
$8,000 in a combined effort with the
IWHS athletic department.
“Our IWHS student athletes
worked hard this year raising money
for breast cancer prevention. This
ride is my way of showing support
for them and their efforts while
recognizing the mission of the first
sisters who came to San Antonio to
care for the sick,” said Fricke.
The Friends of CHRISTUS Santa
Rosa Foundation is an active partner
in the mission to bring life-saving
screening mammograms to underserved women in our communities
who may not otherwise have access
to these services.
The CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Mobile Mammography Unit (MMU)
goes out into Bexar county and
13 surrounding counties, servicing more than 30 communities to
provide breast health awareness for
women who might not otherwise
get these services due to financial
constraints or transportation issues.
Over 1,000 of the screenings provided each year are unfunded, and
must be covered by funds raised
through donations and grants.
The CHRISTUS Santa Rosa
Mobile Mammography Unit will be
on site at IWHS to do mammograms
that morning, Oct.20, between 7
a.m. to 11 a.m. Call 210-704-4100
to schedule your appointment today.
Fricke is accepting pledges per
mile as well as donations to reach
her goal. Net proceeds from the
ride will be donated to the Friends of
CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Foundation
for their mobile mammography unit.
To make a pledge or a donation,
please contact Coach Fricke at

San Antonio City Council
members have unanimously
approved a plan to join with the
Texas General Land Office and
enter into a cooperative agreement with the Alamo Endowment to fund and oversee the
development of a joint master
plan for the Alamo complex
and Alamo historic district. As
a result of the affirmative vote,
the GLO and Alamo Endowment
will manage a master planning
process in coordination with
the city.
San Antonio has already approved spending $17 million to
fund the redevelopment project.
The state will contribute $31 million and the Alamo Endowment
could raise hundreds of millions
of additional dollars for the historic initiative, which could bring
dramatic change to one of Texas’
most visited areas.
San Antonio Mayor Ivy Taylor
said council’s approval of the
master plan agreement will free
up stakeholders to work to “create something exceptional” in the
Alamo City.

Uber returns to San Antonio
Special to La Prensa
District 1 is pleased to announce
an operating agreement has been
signed by Uber and the City of San
Antonio allowing Uber’s return to
the Alamo City.
This announcement culminates
months of negotiations between
Uber, the Office of the City Manager, San Antonio Police Department, members of TechBloc and
Councilman Roberto C. Treviño.
Councilman Treviño welcomes
Uber back to San Antonio and
looks forward to its resumption of
service. As San Antonio continues
to grow, a variety of transportation
options are important to ensure
residents and visitors both have
safe and flexible public and private means of getting around the
city. TNCs, such as Uber, also
help diminish the occurrence of
drunk driving in our community.
Councilman Treviño appreciates the hard work and effort of

to premium, in minutes. Payment is automatic through the app

all parties with whom he worked
during the negotiation process.
“As a City By Design, San
Antonio must continue to evolve
and adapt to new technologies,
while ensuring public safety and
civic responsibility,” Councilman
Treviño said.
Mayor Ivy R. Taylor is also
excited to welcome Uber back
to the Alamo City and is certain
the ride sharing service will help
tackle an issue facing all major cities – transportation for residents.
“We are excited to partner with
Uber to provide more options to
all San Antonioans,” said Mayor
Taylor. “This operating agreement
provides consumer choice when
it comes to personal safety and
allows for innovative transportation options to move around San
Antonio.”
Uber had been operating in San
Antonio until April when a City ordinance changed the requirements
for drivers. The new agreement
with Uber takes effect immediately, so residents can begin using
the on-demand service today.

San Judas Tadeo
¡San Judas Tadeo!,
pariente de Jesucristo, glorioso apóstol y
mártir reconocido por
tus virtudes y milagros. Fiel y puntual
intercesor de todos
los que te honran
y confían en ti. Tú
eres poderoso protector y auxilio en las
grandes aflicciones.
Te ruego, desde lo
más profundo de mi
corazón, que vengas
en mi ayuda con tu
poderosa intercesión,
pues has recibido de
Dios el privilegio de
socorrer con tu ayuda
a aquellos que casi
carecen de toda esperanza. Vela por mí.
Mi vida es una vida de
cruces, mis días son
días de tribulación y
mi corazón es un océano de amargura. Mi
alma está envuelta en
las tinieblas. El desasosiego, el desánimo,
la desconfianza, y a
veces, aún la falta de
esperanza, agobian
mi alma. La Divina
Providencia parece
perderse de mi vista
y la fe parece fallar en
mi corazón. Abrumado por estos pensamientos, pido tu ayuda.
No me abandones en
esta triste situación.
Apresúrate en mi ayu-
da. Te lo agradeceré
toda mi vida y te honraré como mi especial
patrono. Agradeceré a
Dios todos los dones
que te ha otorgado y
fomentaré tu culto cuanto me sea posible.
Amén.

Fratello’s Italian Market & Deli has more to love
By Christina Acosta
[email protected]
Price Range: $$
Family members are an important facet of a dinner table. Many
come together to not only eat, but
also to come in full circle to bond
with one another.
As you step inside Fratello’s
Italian Market and Deli, one will
see the photographs of families
in past generations and feel keep
they are in their own living room.
Once the menu is at their fingertips, traditional Italian dishes that
are on paper were once cooked
by grandmothers who wanted
her family to eat authentic Italian food.
La Prensa sat down with Fratel-
lo’s managing investors Marilyn
and Tony Magaro as well as
General Manager Louis Lecocke
to discuss the importance of family, traditions, and even popular
items on the menu. The concept
of bringing all recipes into one
place was to keep the Italian
traditions alive.
“We try to capture the old world
Italian when somebody was cooking on Sunday, which was our
big family meal. That is our goal:
our essence to have somebody
cooking a home cooked meal on
Sunday but we want to cook it all
week long,” explained Lecocke.
In order to continue traditional
family recipes on a daily basis,
restaurant owners Dan Martinelli
and Robert Corbo decided it was
time to open their kitchen to the
San Antonio community. The
inspiration behind the restaurant
came when both men wanted to
add a market and deli to provide
their customers with open options.
“There are two great places that
we tried to that both men tried
to pattern themselves from. One
was a deli where you can get cold
cuts, cheese, pasta, wine, and you
can sit down and eat a sandwich.
The second was an old restaurant
and an ice house called Little
Mike’s Icehouse on Zarzamora
[street],” Lecocke went on to
further discuss, “So they [Corbo
and Martinelli] tried to marry
those two concepts…now there
is a deli, with a few products you
can buy off the shelf, then we
molded it into a restaurant with
Italian comfort food.”
After their opening in August
of 2013, it did not take long for
customers to notice the restaurant’s authenticity. Nowadays,
the Magaros and Lecocke discuss
that customers have become almost like family.
They enjoy their customers so
much that they do not want any
strangers to come in. Every day,
the restaurant brings in all people
by offering a lunch specials; however, keep in mind to choose the
right day wisely.
“Every Tuesday we have an
Italian hamburger, which is
exceptional…Thursday many
people will get in line for the Italian steak sandwich. Some even
call in advance and reserve it to
make sure we do not run out,”
explained Mr. Magaro.
Although there are many options to choose from during the
weekdays, the restaurant staff
exaggerates that one of the best
Italian dishes to eat is found on
the weekend. The Carne Stuvata
is not only a plate you do not usually see at an Italian restaurant, it
is also one that involves ribs.
“The spaghetti is cooked the
way southern Italians cook their
spaghetti sauce. We start with our
spaghetti stock, tomato paste, and
fresh tomatoes with water to start
a boil. Then we take pork ribs
and we slice them individually.
Then we pan fry them in olive
oil… We take those ribs out and it
comes off the bone and has a rich
flavor,” explained Mr. Magaro.
Adding history, tradition, and

unofficial family members allows
the restaurant to constantly grow
in the city. Creating that success
builds them a brighter future to
not only celebrate their triumphs,
but to also give back to the community.
“I think we would like to continue to make people happy and
grow more. We continue to want
people to come in here and feel
like they are a part of the family,
we would like to continue to grow
in the catering business, and we
would also like to continue to
give back to the community,”
Mrs. Magaro further explained,
“We were born, raised, and educated in San Antonio. This place
is special. Those are some of the
special things we can do as we
continue to be successful.”
If you would like to stop into,
please visit Fratello’s Italian Deli
Market located at 2503 Broadway
St. call (210) 444-0277 or visit
www.fratellosdeli.com for more
information about the menu as
well as catering options.
The price range for the Italian
dishes is fairly reasonable, especially if you are bring several
guests around the table. As Mrs.
Magaro puts it, the restaurant
provides customers with, “Family, good friends, and great food.”

Brad Kane revisits magical carpet for re-release of ‘Aladdin’
By Christina Acosta
[email protected]
The memories of watching
Disney movies at home are coming back for those who grew up
with the classics on screen— on
Blu-ray.
To help us relive those childhood memories, Brad Kane,
the singing voice of “Aladdin,”
discussed his behind the scenes
experience with La Prensa. Before Disney came calling for his
voice, Cane began his singing
career with inspiration from his
mother.
“She was a singer at a famous
New York night club in the early
60s called the Copacabana and
I think it was in my blood from
an early age,” discussed Kane
about his early days on stage. “In
grammar school, I would get up
on desks to sing and perform …
I was auditioning at Broadway
shows, I got my first one at eight
from there I went on from show
to show.”
Kane continued singing growing up and became a professional
singer. He worked very hard
until “Aladdin” casted him as the
singing voice. Thrilled to be cast,
Kane was excited for the new
adventure ahead of him.
At that point, all Kane needed
was a little magic from the other
side of the booth from Lea Salonga, the singing voice of “Jasmine.” Kane explains that he
could not have asked for a better
Jasmine to interact and sing along
with during production.
“Because Jasmine and Aladdin
are so close in that moment in the
movie, you want to be able to see
that person that you’re playing
off of,” Kane said. “If you want
to sing a line in a certain way,
you want to cast their emotion in
the next line. So I think that it is
critical, that we were in the booth
together and singing to each other
and that is what makes the song
special.”
After a while, the recording

process for the movie became
effortless until the singer realized
there was an orchestra around
him. When it was time to record,
Kane felt terrified and pressure,
but also amplified to make the
process successful.
“Recording songs in that booth
and having to record live with a
70 piece orchestra who were right
outside from the booth I was singing in, it was both thrilling and
terrifying,” added Kane. “When
you hear those opening notes
come in and they are right there
it really makes you step up your
game. This is real and you really
have to do something special here
on the microphone.”
After the movie hit theatres in
1992, it went on to worldwide
success. Academy Awards and
golden globes for best original
song, “A Whole New World”
soon followed as the world started to recognize a classic hit for
the family.
As years went by, Kane still
could not believe that the movie
has become one of the best movies Disney has ever distributed.
The memories he carried after the
movie helped him understand the
hard work he did before Aladdin
led to great accomplishments.
“I did not know it was going
to be as iconic as it became. I did
not know I was going to enter the
golden age of Disney classics…
you know I think that I was in
the dark about that even though
I knew it was a beautiful song. I
knew it was special and that the
magic carpet ride should really be
imaged,” discussed Kane.
Kane further added that the
song, “A Whole New World,”
could now be heard not only in
plays and on the television screen,
but also at weddings.
“I did not know it was going
to become a wedding song and
that it was going to become a
song where people have their first
dance as couple and spending the
rest of their lives together, but I’m
very grateful that it did and that
I was a part of that,” Kane said.
As for the generations who did
not have the chance to be present
during the movie’s popularity, the
DVD could help them understand
what was before their time. Kane
would like to inform the new generation that this new discovery for
them will be just as magical as a
Pixar movie.
“I think ‘Aladdin’ is timeless,”
Kane said. “I think you know a
song like a whole new world with
Disney magic, music, animation,
with Robin Williams bringing
into life that magical change in
the performance for the ages,
I think that new audiences and
generations will be discovering
this movie forever, you know it’s
just completely magical.”
If you would like to relive
those memories or would like to
introduce someone to the magic
‘Aladdin’ carries, you could find
the DVD at any store that sells
electronics. ‘Aladdin’ on Blu-Ray
is out now.
Fiesta San Antonio Commission
unveils official 2016 Fiesta poster
Special to La Prensa
The Fiesta San Antonio Commission is getting ready to celebrate the 125th anniversary of
Fiesta by unveiling the official
2016 Fiesta poster. Of submissions from 57 San Antonio area
artists to the Fiesta San Antonio
Commission’s annual poster
contest, one design by one artist
is selected as the official art of
Fiesta 2016.
Local artist and art
teacher, Resa Groff
Wohlrabe’s (ree-sagroff wool-rah-bee)
design was unveiled on
Oct. 15 before a gathering of some 500 members of the Fiesta San
Antonio Commission
at the Tobin Center.
The official 2016 Fiesta poster and poster
merchandise (T-shirt,
limited edition medal
and more) are available
for sale online (www.
fiesta-sa.org) and at The
Fiesta Store beginning at 10 a.m.
The Fiesta Store is located at
2611 Broadway, San Antonio, TX
78215 and hours of operation are
Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
The 2016 poster commemorates the 125th anniversary of
Fiesta. Groff Wohlrabe says her
art was inspired by the colorful
movement of Fiesta.
“Knowing that 2016 would be
a special year for the 125th anniversary, I surrounded myself
with items that I had gathered
from past Fiesta events,” Groff
Wohlrabe said. “I was engulfed in
colors! As vivid, visual elements
inspire most of my fine art, they
certainly did for the poster as
well. I love that everything is so
bright and colorful during Fiesta.
Color makes everyone happy
while they celebrate together,”
she added.
The fluid movement of the folkloric
dresses with colorful
patterns; the combination
of medals against sashes; the ribbons, flowers and fun creativity
of custom hats; and the glistening
crowns of royalty—all began to
manifest themselves on the canvas as she painted. The result is
a combination of everything that
makes up the occasion.
Resa Groff Wohlrabe wanted
to pursue art as a career at an
early age and chose to follow
her passion with a bachelor of
fine arts in ceramics from Texas
Tech University, and a master of
fine arts in painting from Florida
State University. She traveled
to study art in Florence, Italy,
which fueled her ambition to
begin traveling the world drawing
many inspirations for her future
works of art.
As an ambitious artist, she
uses her continuously changing
surroundings to inspire her art,
which can vary from detailed portraiture to introspective, abstract
paintings.
In Colorado, she started
a recycled bicycle jewelry line of her where
she has made an awardwinning name for herself
in the art community and
also worked with SolVia Modern Arts Center
while teaching creativity classes.
A fifth-generation
Texan, Resa moved
back to her native
San Antonio in 2013,
where she has worked
with Pinot’s Palette as
a painting instructor, The
Academy at Morgan’s Wonderland as an art teacher, performs
as a live painter at venues around
the city-frequently at Travis Park
and enjoys getting the community involved in art and assisting
them in discovering their own
creativity.

LA PRENSA DE SAN ANTONIO
Luminaria 2015 is almost here!
Special to La Prensa
San Antonio’s annual nighttime festival of visual, performing and multi-media arts will
take place on Oct. 23 and Oct.
24, from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m.
The Luminaria 2015 footprint
includes Maverick Park, several
blocks of Jones Street that will
be closed to traffic, and the entire campus of the San Antonio
Museum of Art.
The event will feature artists
from all genres and disciplines:
dancers, actors, poets, playwrights, filmmakers, musicians, muralists, composers,
performance artists, painters,
sculptors, animators, and experimental multimedia artists.
The best part is that the nighttime festival is free and open to
the public.
Luminaria is a rain or shine
celebration. All humans are
welcome, but pets should stay
at home this year. Luminaria is
bike-friendly. The Luminaria
dress code encourages colorful
costumes, funny hats, decorated
bikes, and big smiles. Luminaria loves an audience.
Two brilliant nights
Since 2008, Luminaria has
dazzled audiences with the diversity of arts in San Antonio.
The festival is a shining citywithin-a-city, with theatrical
and dance performances, light
installations and live music, and
lots of surprises.
It’s a real-time, in-person
laboratory of immersive experiences, unusual collaborations
and innovative ideas. It’s a
once-a-year opportunity for San
Antonio artists to make challenging new work, get in touch
with artists from other genres,
other cities, and other cultures,
and to showcase our city as
an extraordinary place to live,
work, play and create.
Luminaria 2015 marks its
first year with full-time Executive Director Kathy Armstrong,
former director of exhibitions of
the Southwest School of Art. An
artistic committee of San Antonio artists across disciplines
have worked together to select
original projects from an open
call process, as well as commissioning new contemporary work
from local and visiting artists of
all genres.
This year’s roster of partici-
pating artists include the local
and the global, the emerging
and the legendary, the traditional and the cutting edge, all
working to create an unforgettable and profound encounter
with the creative force inside
all of us.
Two brilliant international
artists
Two acclaimed visiting artists, Siyon Jin and Woonhak
Chung, come from our sister
city of Gwangju, Korea. Our
two cities have shared a rich
history of cultural, educational
and civic exchange since the
relationship began in 1981.
Gwangju, like San Antonio,
is regarded as a vibrant center
of arts and culture, and is also
known as the “City of Light,”
partially for its luminous devotion to the use of LED lighting
in its prolific arts scene. The
manipulation of light in both
of these artists’ work makes a
compelling connection between
Gwangju’s City of Light and
San Antonio’s Luminaria.
Siyon Jin and Woonhak
Chung are being hosted by the
city’s Department for Culture
and Creative Development, as
part of San Antonio’s sister
city cultural engagement program. Mr.Jin’s spectacular
light and video installation will
animate the iconic façade of the
San Antonio Museum of Art,
while Chung’s colorful light
sculptures of Buddha will greet
festival-goers at the center of
Maverick Park at the corner of
Broadway and Jones.
The San Antonio Museum
of Art
One of Luminaria’s event
partners and on-site art locations, The San Antonio Museum
of Art, will offer extended hours
on Friday and Saturday from 10
a.m. to midnight. While general
admission fees will apply to the
galleries of the San Antonio
Museum of Art, they will waive
the additional special exhibition
fee for their exciting current
exhibition, 28 Chinese.
Special daytime ticketed
events
In addition to the two-night
festival, Luminaria is proud to
offer several ticketed daytime
events. Please visit luminariasa.org to purchase tickets and
reserve your seats.

‘Crimson Peak’ delivers an ‘Goosebumps’ is a night of
underwhelming gothic tale

Once a movie goer has seen
what is out in theatres, they come
across a scary trailer encouraging
them to see the movie. Sometimes,
the trailer fails to deliver what the
audience should expect.
Guillermo Del Toro, who has
also directed, “Pan’s Labyrinth,”
and “Pacific Rim,” failed to provide
the audience with a suspenseful
plot, but allowed other elements
to develop to keep the light from
dimming.
Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) is an ambitious writer of horror could not achieve her dreams
because she was a young woman
living in the 1900s. She is urged to
write love stories instead, crushing
her with rejection from publications.
However, she could survive comfortably with the help of her doting
father, Carter Cushing (Jim Beaver)
whom loved and protected her from
the bad the world carries. Then one
day as she was working, Thomas
Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston), comes in
for a job interview with her father
and is impressed with her writing.
Unfortunately, Sharpe did not get
the job, but Edith fell in love with
him. One night, as Edith was going
to sleep, the ghost of her mother
appeared and warned her to stay
away from him.
Edith did not think anything of it
as the couple goes on several outings along with his sister Lucille
(Jessica Chastain) who gives Edith
the cold shoulder. This scenario
does not seem right to Mr. Cushing
and he orders Thomas and Lucille to
go back to England and stay away
from her daughter and paid them
a large amount of money to leave.
Lucille is happy about the amount
received but Thomas does not
Throughout the early 90’s, R.L.
Stein’s ‘Goosebumps’ series lined
the cobwebbed bookshelves of
children’s sinister nightmares as a
ghoulish invitation for the uninitiated reader – it’s decrepit corridors
of haunts possessing kids to read.
The film adaptation of “Goosebumps” – made over 13 years
following the publication of the
first volume – is like adults now
revisiting and reading the books
aloud to their offspring, stupefied
that the scary stories of their youths
are now tame in their presentation
of ghoulish twists.
The movie is for kids, but does
little to appease the nostalgia of their
parents, who will grow impatient
with the pandering pacing of the
movie.
‘Goosebumps’ follows Zach
(Dylan Minnette) and his mom

want to leave Edith without a fight.
Thomas’ wish comes true as tragedy struck in Edith’s household
allowing her to get married and
move to England with the Sharpe’s.
As she sets foot in England at
their mansion, things begin to feel
abnormal for Edith. She begins to
see red, bloody ghosts and begins
to communicate with them. In
the night, she begins to have bad
dreams that do not allow her to sleep
and she even coughs up blood.
Over time, Edith grows ill with
the tea Lucille makes for her. As
she explores the creepy house a little
more, things start to unfold right in
front of her about who Thomas and
Lucille truly are. Once she figures
out the truth, Edith must escape
what she has gotten herself into
before it is too late.
Before watching the movie, you
are expected to see a movie filled
with blood, gore, and little jumping out of your seats. However,
“Crimson Peak” failed to deliver
a well-planned out plot for the full
movie to run smoothly.
There was a scene in the movie
that went from Lucille and Thomas
receiving money from Mr. Cushing
to automatically knowing why they
want Edith as a target. If there are
scenes that continue to predict the
ending, you might as well watch
half of the movie.
You also expect intense scenes,
such as when Edith would see the
Delaware – eagerly for a change of
scenery after the passing of Zach’s
father.
The family lives next door to R.L.
Stine (Jack Black), the agoraphobic
and Stephen King’s loathing neighbor, who barricades himself and
his daughter Hannah (Odeya Rush)
within their house.
When Zach is convinced Stine is
abusing his daughter Hannah after
witnessing a domestic disturbance
in their upstairs window, he breaks
in with his buddy Champ (Ryan
Lee), where they discover a library
of locked Goosebumps books.
After unintentionally unlocking
a book, the monsters of the Goosebumps stories come to life and terrorize the small-town.
In explanation of the paranormal
phenomenon, Stine confesses to
being ailed by terrible allergies
throughout his childhood that prohibited him from being outside.
Preoccupied with his own thoughts,
he created monsters that literally
leapt off the page with a magical
Smith-Corona typewriter.
In order to save Madison, the
monsters must be trapped inside a
book that Stine writes, imprisoning the ghouls permanently in their
literary tombs – or tomes. Standing
in their way is Slappy (voiced by
Black), a ventriloquist dummy with
a flair for one-liners, each becoming
more groans inducing with subsequent deliveries.
Instead of choosing one storyline,
or multiple to adapt from the source
material, the creators opted to cram
every ‘Goosebumps’ spook within
the margins of the movie’s thin
script; Stine and the kids are pursued
by zombies, werewolves, and even
bloodthirsty garden gnomes.
‘Goosebumps’ scares the audience stupid – for all the wrong
reasons – and begins to plod along
like one of R.L. Stine’s lesser offerings in his series, an entry bored
children would likely return to the
shelf after skimming the first few
pages of the book.
The scariest part of the experience
happened prior to my screening,
when a young girl abruptly lost her
lunch in front of the theater – a putrid
foreshadowing of my feelings while
watching this convoluted Halloween
offering.
ghost in Crimson Peak to not muffle
what they are communicating until
Edith speaks out. The little messages the audience needed to know
would allow the audience to move
along with the storyline slowly.
Even though the plot needed a
little more work to be done, the
settings of the movie allowed Del
Toro to used Gothic elements as the
climax of the story began. As Edith
arrived at the house on Crimson
Peak, you will see a gothic styled
mansion filled with darkness on
the inside.
The pieces of the film are a reminder of how Mary’s Shelley’s,
“Frankenstein” was told from paper
to film. Del Toro did bring out those
elements possibly to give an ode to
the author especially in one scene
where a lady was making fun of
Edith’s writing comparing her to
Jane Austen.
However, Edith said she preferred to be compared to, “Mary
Shelley, talented and widowed.”
If the movie was inspired by the
author, Del Toro mastered half of
the movie correctly.
Ultimately, ”Crimson Peak” was
only halfway great when presenting
the trailer as well as providing the
appropriate costumes, settings, and
darkness the movie would like to
portray. Del Toro, however, should
have spent a little more time to
develop the plot and make scenes a

DiCaprio buys rights to film about
Volkswagen scandal
EFE - Leonardo DiCaprio
purchased the rights to a yetto-be-written book about the
Volkswagen emissions scandal
with an eye toward producing a
film about the firm’s attempt to
deceive regulators, U.S. media
outlets reported Tuesday.
The production company Appian Way, which DiCaprio owns,
and Paramount Pictures acquired
the rights to the publishing project by New York Times journalist
Jack Ewing about the business
philosophy behind the scandal
involving diesel emissions by vehicles of the German automaker.
In early September, U.S. regulators revealed that VW for years
had used software that hid the
true emissions put out by its diesel engines.
VW, which became the largest
auto manufacturer in the first half
of this year, acknowledged that
it had used a computer system
over the past seven years to show
lesser emissions during testing of
its diesel engines in its biggest
markets.

The firm is facing a potential
fine of up to $18 billion by the
U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency.
The rights to the book about the
scandal, about which details are
still being uncovered, were sold
at the beginning of October to
the Norton publishing house for
several million dollars.
The book will investigate the
philosophy of “more, faster and
better” behind the scandal.
DiCaprio has produced suc-
cessful films such as “The Wolf
of Wall Street,” “Runner Runner”
and “Out of the Furnace.”
He will next appear in front of
the camera in the latest film by
Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu, “The Revenant.”

Donald Trump to host ‘Saturday
Night Live’ on Nov. 7
EFE - Multimillionaire and
Republican presidential hopeful
Donald Trump will host NBC’s
“Saturday Night Live” on Nov.
7, the network confirmed on
Tuesday.
Trump, who has a longstanding
history with the site of the show’s
live broadcast in New York’s
Rockefeller Center, thus follows
Democrat Hillary Clinton, who
appeared in one of the program’s
satirical skits in early October.
The news is being regarded as
a ceasefire between Trump and
NBC, which in June ended its
business relationship with the
magnate after Trump made derogatory comments about Mexican immigrants while announcing
his presidential campaign.
The network issued a communique at the time saying that “At
NBC, respect and dignity for all
people are cornerstones of our
values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump
regarding immigrants, NBCU-
niversal is ending its business
relationship with [him].”
This will be the second time
that Trump has hosted the program, having first done so in April
2004 with the aim of promoting
his business talent-search show
“The Apprentice.”
In addition, he has made cameo
appearances on SNL multiple
times since the 1980s and has frequently been the butt of jokes on
the show focusing on his famous
hairstyle, scowl and mannerisms.
