Council recommends
Missions as World
Heritage site
By Lea Thompson
[email protected]
San Antonio’s missions already
attract millions of tourists each
year, but that number could grow
thanks to the International Council on Monuments and Sites’ recent recommendation to classify
them as a World Heritage Site.
The council’s recommendation will be considered during
the upcoming session of United
Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
(UNESCO) held in Bonn, Germany. UNESCO will release
their final list of newly approved
sites in June.
San Antonio’s missions were
nominated for the World Heritage
status in 2014, but the missions
were integral to the creation of
the modern-day city and would
be the first site in Texas to receive
World Heritage status.
“The missions predate the
founding of the city,” Shanon
Miller, Office of Historic Preservation Director, said. “There are
few places in the world that are
so close to each other, and we’re
able to establish these incredible
communities while developing
the associated land. There’s really
kind of an intact connection between them that makes it unique.”
According to a Bexar County
study, gaining World Heritage
status would add anywhere from
$44 to $105 million to the San
Antonio economy annually and
possibly see the creation of hundreds of new jobs.
Although the council won’t
announce its final decision until
June, local officials consider the
recommendation a positive sign.
“This recommendation is truly
‘monumental’ and reflects years
of good work by so many,” Congressman Lloyd Doggett said in a
statement issued this week. “Our
recent Missions park expansion
has advanced this effort, and now
all of our local Congress members are joining together to seek
support from the Ambassador
of each country on UNESCO’s
World Heritage Committee. That
final approval will give us even
more to celebrate next month.”
La Semana Nacional de la
Pequeña Empresa se celebró del
4 de mayo al 8 de mayo, y por tal
motivo un miembro del gabinete
del presidente Barack Obama
estuvo de visita en San Antonio.
Se trata de María Contreras
Sweet, la Administradora de la
Administración de los Pequeños
Negocios (SBA, por sus siglas
en inglés), quien visitó UTSA
el 6 de mayo.
Durante su visita, Sweet anun­
ció el lanzamiento de un sitio
web en español que podrá ayudar a los miles de empresarios
hispanos en los Estados Unidos
a comenzar y a desarrollar sus
pequeños negocios.
Según las Cámaras de Comer­
cio Hispanas de los Estados
Unidos, hay más de 3,2 millones
de negocios de hispanos en el
país, los cuales aportan más de
$468 millones a la economía
estadounidense cada año.
Además, el Censo de los Estados Unidos indica que más de 37
millones de personas hablan el
español en casa, equivalente a 12
por ciento de la total población
del país.
“Estamos aquí para rebajar los
obstáculos y poder destacar a
todos los empresarios”, aseguró
Sweet.
Para entrar al portal de SBA
en español, ingrese a www.
es.sba.gov. El sitio contiene más
de 2,000 páginas digitales que
ofre­cen información sobre cómo
conseguir consejos, contratos y
capital.

hispanos. (Foto, Natalie Bobadilla)
“Lo que es muy importante y
sobresaliente de este esfuerzo
es que todo es gratis”, explicó.
Para los empresarios que
necesiten asesoría personal,
el sitio web los conecta con
oficinas y centros que ofrecen
recursos bilingües.
Uno de esos sitios es el Centro de Desarrollo de Negocios
Pequeños en UTSA. Este centro provee consultas, ofrece
entrenamientos sobre cómo
desarrollar un plan de trabajo y
cuenta con otros servicios que
benefician a los empresarios y
a las personas que aspiran ser
empresarios.
El presidente de UTSA, Ricardo Romo, está particularmente
orgulloso de este recurso y de
los empresarios en San Antonio.
“Los negocios pequeños son
un negocio muy grande para san
Antonio”, expresó Romo. “Los
negocios pequeños cuentan con
más de 35,000 establecimientos
en la ciudad y son una de la
razones por que hay tanto desa­
rrollo de trabajo”.
Henry Cisneros, el ex Secretario de Vivienda y Desarrollo
Urbano, también estuvo presente
durante la visita de la administradora y enfatizó que el sector
de los pequeños negocios es la
fundación de la economía de los
Estados Unidos.
“Dos de cada tres trabajos en
este país son creados por el sector de las pequeñas empresas”,
indicó Cisneros.

The Eilan Hotel and Spa will
turn blue in honor of Lung Force
Week (May 11 to 17), to promote
awareness and treatment of lung
disease in San Antonio. Lung
disease has profoundly impacted
the lives of staff members at
Eilan’s Sustenio, including the
restaurant’s Executive Chef John
Herdman and General Manager,
Robert Fagen, who both have
lost parents to the disease.
“I think a lot of people assume
that if you have the disease you
earned it, but that’s simply not
true,” Fagen said. “People take
lung health for granted and we
often think that asthma and
things like that are pedestrian

LA PRENSA DE SAN ANTONIO
Comentarios... La otra cara de Estados Unidos
Estados Unidos no es solo
Apple, Google,
Hollywood y
Disneylandia.
También es
Jorge Ramos Baltimore, Ferguson y muchas
otras ciudades donde algunos
policías, en lugar de cuidar y
proteger, maltratan y matan.
Vengo de un país donde la
gente tiene miedo a la policía. En
México, muchos saben que cuerpos de policías están vinculados
con los criminales y que no se
pue­de confiar en ellos. En Estados Unidos también hay personas
que desconfían de su policía local, aunque por razones distintas;
le temen por discriminación y por
abuso de autoridad.
Los injustificables saqueos
y robos ocurridos hace unos
días en Baltimore han distraído
la atención sobre el verdadero
problema en muchos lugares de
Estados Unidos. El problema se
llama brutalidad policial. ¿Las
víctimas? Afroamericanos, hispanos, inmigrantes y miembros
de minorías. Y por supuesto
que están enojados (pero no por
eso se vale quemar farmacias y
robar zapatos tenis de centros
comerciales).
Los abusos de la policía en
Estados Unidos forman parte de
una larga lista. El pasado mes
de febrero fue terrible para los
inmigrantes.
La policía de Pasco, Washington, disparó y mató a Antonio
Zambrano-Montes después de
que el trabajador agrícola les
arro­jó unas piedras.
El mismo mes en Gravepine,
Texas, Rubén García Villalpando
fue abatido después de una persecución policiaca.
Y en Santa Ana, California,
Ernesto Canepa –quien tenía
dos empleos y criaba a cuatro
hijos– perdió la vida a manos de
la policía. Todas estas víctimas
estaban desarmadas.
Estos casos prácticamente,
pasaron desapercibidos para los
medios en inglés. Pero sí reflejan
la tensión entre las autoridades y
la comunidad latina en el país.
Escucho frecuentemente quejas de que policías detuvieron
a un inmigrante o a un hispano
solo por el color de su piel o
por su a­cento. Así, una simple
infracción de tránsito se puede
convertir en la pérdida de un
auto, en una orden de deportación
o en el fin de una vida.
Los afroamericanos, sin embargo, han sufrido desproporcionadamente el abuso de los
cuerpos policíacos. Hay casos
muy dramáticos y cargados de
publicidad, como el de la muerte
del joven Michael Brown en
Ferguson, Missouri, y el del
estrangulamiento de Eric Garner
en Nueva York. Pero muchos
otros afroamericanos han muerto
a manos de la policía.
Baltimore es una ciudad dividida racial y económicamente,
y ni siquiera el hecho de que su
alcaldesa y su comisionado de
policía sean afroamericanos la
ha hecho más hospitalaria para
esta minoría.
Una investigación del diario
The Baltimore Sun encontró que
desde el 2011 más de 100 personas han demandado y ganado a
la ciudad por acusaciones de brutalidad policial y por violaciones
de sus derechos civiles.
La ciudad ha tenido que pagar
casi 12 millones de dólares en
pagos a víctimas y en gastos
legales.
No es fácil ser afroamericano
o hispano en las calles de Baltimore.
El pastor Ángel Nuñez, quien
lleva más de dos décadas ayudando a inmigrantes en la ciudad, me dijo en una entrevista
que “muchos latinos han sido
maltratados, han terminado en la
cárcel; ha habido muchos abusos
y de eso no se reporta casi nada.”
Tiene razón.
La impunidad policiaca es un
grave problema. Los policías que
matan injustamente pocas veces
acaban en la cárcel.
De los miles de casos de agentes que han matado a alguien
durante un operativo policial
a nivel nacional desde el 2005
a la fecha, solo 54 han sido
acusados formalmente, según
una investigación del periódico
The Washington Post. Y luego la
mayoría de esos policías fueron
encontrados inocentes o se les
retiraron los cargos.
Es decir, un policía que mata
casi nunca se tiene que enfrentar
a la justicia. Esto explica las
enormes protestas en Baltimore
tras la misteriosa muerte de un
joven de 25 años, Freddie Gray.
Lo que sí sabemos es que estaba
desarmado y que murió por las
lesiones que sufrió durante la
custodia policial.
El viernes, seis policías fueron
acusados en relación con la
muerte de Gray, lo que ha hecho
surgir la esperanza de que que
la justicia se aplicará en este
caso. Pero muchos habitantes de
Baltimore sospechan que en este
caso, como en muchos otros,
nada ocurrirá.
Los incendios y los robos en
Baltimore, al igual que policías
que matan a miembros de minorías, no son parte de la imagen
que muchos tienen de Estados
Unidos. Fuera de aquí, para
muchos Estados Unidos es el de
las supercarreteras, los malls, los
inventos tecnológicos, el ejército
más poderoso del planeta y un
gran experimento de libertad.
Pero basta que un policía te
detenga para poner a prueba ese
estereotipo.
La elección del primer presidente afroamericano –Barack
Obama– no significó la llegada
de una sociedad post-racial. Claro, existen avances incuestiona­
bles pero todavía hay enormes e
hirientes diferencias raciales. Y
para comprobar eso basta salir a
caminar por una de las calles de
Baltimore.

Just a Thought: It is Mother’s Day
Today we
celebrate
Mother’s
Day. It is the
day we honor
our mothers
and motherhood, materSteve Walker n a l b o n d s ,
and the influence of mothers in society. It is
celebrated on various days in
many parts of the world, most
commonly in spring in April or
May.
Here in the United States it is
designated as the second Sunday
in May, which turns out to be the
May 10 this year. Last year it fell
on May 11.
The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in
1908, when a woman named Anna
Jarvis held a memorial for her
mother in Grafton, West Virginia.
She then began a campaign to
make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States.
It took until 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson signed a
proclamation naming the second
Sunday of May as a day for “public expression of our love and
reverence for the mothers of our
country.” This year we celebrate
the 101th anniversary of Mother’s
Day in the U.S.
When we think of the sacrifice
many of our mothers, who have
nurtured us all through our life,
we can’t help but be thankful to
them and for them.
Look at many of our successful
leaders in San Antonio who have
been significantly influenced and
guided by their mothers. When
you think of former Mayor and
now HUD Secretary Julian Castro
and Congressman Joaquin Castro,
you immediately think of their
success and the influence that their
mother Rosie Castro has made in
their lives. Both are graduates of
Harvard Law School and Stanford
University. Rosie herself is welleducated and making a difference
in the community on her own.
Then we have mother Millie
Duran, Founder of the La Prensa
Foundation which has raised millions of dollars for scholarships.
Just a few weeks ago, the Foundation hosted their annual Scholarship Gala. Millie is the wife of La
Prensa Publisher Tino Duran and
mother to sons David, Steve, and
Tino Jr., plus two daughters Barbara and Nina. Nina now serves
as an adjunct instructor at San
Antonio College.
According to history Jarvis,
the founder of “Mother’s Day,”
became very disappointed with its
commercialization by the 1920s.
Her mission was to honor her
mother with an official Mother’s
Day, not commercialize it in her
words. Obviously it became so
popular it was eventually adopted
by numerous other countries and
is now celebrated all over the
world.
In Mexico for example, the
government of Alvaro Obregon
imported the Mother’s Day holiday from the US in 1922, marking
May 10 every year as Mother’s
Day, with the newspaper Excelsior holding a massive promotional campaign for the holiday
that year.
In this tradition, in the early
1920s, Hallmark Cards began creating and producing Mother’s Day
cards so each person could offer a
gift, card, or remembrance toward
their mothers, grandmothers, and/
or matriarch figure on that special
Mother’s Day.
We have come a long way in
one hundred years celebrating
Mother’s Day. Just a suggestion
would be to give your mother a
“Happy Mother’s Day” card if
you haven’t already, and perhaps
take her out to dinner to a nice
restaurant.
As always, what I write is “Just
a Thought.”

our veterans come home and leave

service to them begins. Veterans
not only risk their lives and their
health for us, but they are a vital
part of San Antonio’s culture and
economy. We are veteran-friendly
and consider it an honor to help
our veterans and their families
access information and services.
As you can see, we offer a
robust set of services and your
satisfaction is our top priority.
Please do not hesitate to contact

work hard and get the job done for

When the topic of religion
arises, many like to keep the subject under the radar. There was
an exception this past Thursday,
as people of all faiths put their
opinions at rest to unite for a
peaceful National Day of Prayer
at City Hall.
More than a hundred people
gathered and sang along to gospel music performed by the 210
Church and a City Choir on the
steps of City Hall and joined
hands for personal prayers to
be heard.
After the Star Spangled Banner and recitation of the Pledge
of Allegiance, the crowd stood
in silence as Mayor Ivy Taylor
took to the podium. The mayor
addressed the National Day of
Prayer City Proclamation declar-
ing, “For the past 64 years on
May 7, America has celebrated
National Prayer Day. But today
marks the 30th annual National
Prayer Day here in San Antonio.”
She then went on to recite the
prayer as everyone bowed their
heads.
Father Jimmy Drennan of St.
Margaret Mary Catholic Church,
united people of all faiths by
preaching, “We hear those who
are treated unjustly and we echo
their cry. Lord our God, we seek
to understand the call you have
given us… to look for the power
of love you have given us, for
hate accomplishes nothing.”
After Father Drennan’s speech
many chanted, “God is good, All
the time, God is good.”
National Prayer Day at City
Hall included many speakers.
People came for different reasons. Susan Mendez, an avowed
Christian, decided to be there
today for the people of San
Antonio.
“I decided to take a stand on
Christian faith and for the people
of San Antonio. A lot of change
has started. There is unity and
there are plans to help the city
come together.”
Catholic follower Katrina Lopez decided to show her love of
God for personal reasons.
“I have struggled with depression and anxiety for several
years now. But because of God’s
presence, my mind is starting to
clear up. I dedicate this day to
God for giving me the strength
to get up every day and smile.
God is good!”
With a closing prayer and
song, National Prayer Day can
be seen as a day not only to pray,
but to accept people of all faiths.
Culinaria 2015 will offer attendees some of the best food experiences that San Antonio has to offer.

According to the American
Lung Association, lung cancer
kills more than than two times
the number of all other cancers
combined, yet it receives less
research and treatment funding than other publicly recognized organizations dedicated to
eradicating diseases like breast
cancer, prostate cancer or skin
cancer.
“Eilan Hotel & Spa’s giant

color used to represent Lung

TOYOTA Motor Manufacturing, BIG RED DOG begins
new project for UTSA
Texas invests in Alamo Colleges student living
Foundation Scholarships
By Alyssa Walker
By Deborah M. Martin
Alamo Colleges Foundation thanks TOYOTA Motor
Manufacturing, Texas for 12
months of generous donations,
which are preparing students for
career readiness through GED
programs at Alamo CollegesPalo Alto College, and supporting more students to enroll
in Automotive Technology and
STEM-related programs at Alamo Colleges-St. Philip’s College and Alamo Colleges-Palo
Alto College, as well as transfer
into education programs at
Texas A&M University San Antonio. A recognition ceremony
will be held May 19 during
the Alamo Colleges Board of
Trustees regular meeting, in the
Alamo Colleges Killen Center
Boardroom at 201 W. Sheridan.
“Alamo Colleges is grateful
for TOYOTA Motor Manufacturing, Texas, to invest in the
education and advancement of
our community,” said Alamo
Colleges Chancellor Dr. Bruce
Leslie. “San Antonio’s aspirations as a city depend on education. This partnership aligns
with that notion and represents
a true win-win situation by
helping us build a high-skilled
technology workforce that will
position the San Antonio area
for prosperity and a brighter
future.”
Specifically, TOYOTA
Motor Manufacturing, Texas
(TMMT) donated $86,000 for:
• Scholarships and testing
vouchers to help 103 students
successfully complete the General Education Development
(GED) program in English
and Español at Palo Alto College Adult Learning Academy.
These individuals are preparing
to enter a college or a career
track in the fall.
• A new Toyota Dealer Technician Workforce Pipeline
Scholarship to support local
high school students enrolled in
Career/Technology Education
Automotive Technology Programs, who are also employed
as service center interns at
Gulf States Toyota dealerships.
Funds will enable six students
to enroll in the Automotive
Technology program at St. Philip’s College. Though a manufacturing operation, TMMTX is
investing in this education and
economic development pilot
program with the dealerships
to strengthen the supply chain
and ultimately the workforce of
San Antonio.
• The annual Palo Alto College Celebración event that raises funds to meet requirements
for a U.S. Dept. of Education
Title V Matching Endowment
Grant for scholarships.
• Scholarships to support
ten graduates of Brackenridge,
Burbank, Lanier, Kennedy
and Memorial High Schools,
located in the City of San Antonio’s City Council District
5. To qualify, students must
be attending or plan to enroll
in Automotive Technology
or STEM-related programs at
either St. Philip’s College or
Palo Alto College.
• Scholarships for two stu-
dents to attend Palo Alto College full-time toward graduation in a STEM-related field,
then transfer to Texas A&M
University-San Antonio for
completion of the junior and
senior years toward teacher
certification. Upon bachelor
degree completion, the scholarship recipient will return to
teach a STEM-related course
in one of six school districts
located in the southern region
of San Antonio, making this a
full-circle investment.
“TMMTX is proud to be collaborating with Alamo Colleges
Foundation.It is through our
continued effort of support,
we hope to inform and educate
teachers and students of the importance of career readiness and
STEM, specifically relating to
manufacturing,” said Mario Lozoya, Director of Government
Relations and External Affairs.
“Our efforts touch the entire
K-12 to adult learning process.
TMMTX continues to educate,
collaborate and advocate with
our ‘backyard partners.’”
BIG RED DOG, a local civil
engineering company, has teamed
up with 210 Development Group
and Catamount Constructors once
again to build a new student housing apartment complex – Vitre. BIG
RED DOG services for this project
include entitlement support and site
development construction documents that include utility coordination, site grading and construction
phase services.
The apartment complex is slated
to begin construction in fall of 2015
and estimated to be completed by
July 2017. Vitre will feature unique
amenities, close proximity to UTSA’s downtown campus and VIA’s
multi-modal center, making it easy
to commute to several downtown
facilities such as businesses and
entertainment venues. The student
housing complex will be located at
700 W. Commerce St.
Graduate engineer at BIG RED
DOG San Antonio, Taylor Allen,
says working with 210 Development Group to build the 242-unit
student housing complex will provide students and faculty new living
options near the downtown campus.
“There was not official student
housing for the UTSA downtown
campus until now,” Allen said.
“Staff and students who work and
learn at UTSA will now have living
options within walking distance to
campus. 210 Development Group
has a vision to make a significant
impact in San Antonio’s urban
renaissance and are spearheading
projects in all parts of the urban
core with unique design challenges
that come with urban infill and
adaptive reuse. Incorporating the
historic Maureaux Building and
adding residential and retail space
are in line with the City’s ‘Decade
of Downtown’ goals and we’re
happy to be part of the design team
that gets to help make their vision
a reality!”
In addition, this marks the second new market rate multi-family
project downtown for BIG RED
DOG and 210 Development Group,
following the Peanut Factory Lofts
near the west side of San Antonio.
“We are most excited about
melding the iconic Maureaux Building with contemporary-inspired
supplementary construction to
shape a new landmark for an area
of the west side that has long been
ignored and underutilized,” says
Paige Shinn, Director of Marketing
for 210 Development Group.

Decisión sin precedentes
Por Humberto Caspa
[email protected]
“Escucho sus clamores por
justicia, no paz”, puntualizó
Marilyn Mosby, procuradora
estatal de la ciudad de Baltimore. Una vez de hacer
las explicaciones pertinentes,
Mosby, de raíces afroamericanas, imputó a los seis policías
que fueron involucrados en la
muerte de Freddie Gray.
De haber sido una procuradora o un procurador anglo, lo más
probable es que estas acusaciones nunca se hubieran llevado a
cabo, a pesar de que tres de los
seis imputados no son de origen
europeo-norteame­r icano. Y es
importante recordar que Mosby
no fue nombrada por el gobernador del estado de Maryland
sino que tuvo que ser elegida
por el electorado de su distrito.
Lo anterior nos lleva a concluir que, en Estados Unidos,
las cuestiones de “raza” todavía
cuentan. Y en estas condiciones, los grupos minoritarios
normalmente son los llamados
a perder dentro de una cultura,
costumbres, leyes dominadas
por la gente de origen europeonorteamericano.
Esta protección a este grupo
étnico-nacional no es natural,
ni mucho menos es una coincidencia del destino.
Los europeos-norteamericanos siempre han tratado de
mantener una hegemonía frente
a los grupos minoritarios en
la sociedad norteamericana.
Esto explica el hecho de que
los puestos de trabajo en las
dependencias públicas del Estado –municipales, estatales y
federales—, especialmente los
más remunerables, están colmados por las etnias dominantes
europeo-norteamericana.
A pesar de que en muchas
ciudades y distritos hay una
población mayoritaria de minorías étnicas, en sus instituciones públicas está el grupo
dominante. Esto sucede en los
departamentos de policías, en
las universidades, los colegios
comunitarios, los distritos escolares; en general, en la mayoría
del sector público.
Más aún, si el jefe de estas
instituciones públicas es de
ascendencia europeo-norteame­
ricana, este a menudo trata no
solamente de resguardar el
mismo orden étnico, sino que
sus decisiones tienden a proteger a los de su grupo social.
En la ciudad de Ferguson,
Missouri, Thomas Jackson,
jefe de policías de ascendencia
europea-norteamericana, hizo
lo que pudo para distorsionar
y beneficiar al policía Darren
Wilson, quien disparó varias
veces contra Michael Brown,
un joven afroamericano que,
minutos antes, había robado
unos cigarrillos de una pequeña
tienda comercial.
A unos tres meses del trágico
incidente, un jurado dominado
por europeos-norteamericanos
decidió no imputar cargos
penales contra Wilson, a pesar
de que hubo prueba de abuso
de autoridad en la muerte de
Brown. Nueve de los doce
jurados fue de ascendencia
europea-norteamericana.
Sin embargo, la decisión del
jurado fue prácticamente condicionada por Robert McCulloh,
procurador del contado de Saint
Louis y también de ascendencia
europea-norteamericana. En
vez de imputar cargos contra
Wilson, permitió que un jurado
decidiera en base a leyes que,
estructuralmente, favorecen al
grupo dominante. “No juzguen
a los jurados, juzguen a la ley”,
dijo McCulloh sarcásticamente.
Entonces, la decisión de la
procuradora Mosby de acusar
a los seis policías implicados
en la muerte de Freddy Gray en
Baltimore crea un precedente
significativo en la sociedad
norteamericana.
El hecho de pertenecer a un
grupo minoritario, muchas ve­
ces permite al servidor público
a ver una situación legal en
forma más objetiva. Nuestras
instituciones públicas necesitan de más diversidad étnicanacional para que no ocurran
injusticias.

Crestwood Estates
offers family-focused
manufactured homes
If you’re looking for an affordable and peaceful place to
call home, Crestwood Estates
could be the place for you.
This manufactured home
community prides itself in
being a family-friendly gated
neighborhood with the feel
of country living within city
limits.
“We’re only 15 minutes
away from downtown, but
since we’re outside loop 410,
there are a lot of green areas,”
says General Manager Alma
Flores.
Located on the Southwest
side of San Antonio, residents
can enjoy close proximity
to Texas A&M San Antonio, Palo Alto College, the
Toyota plant and several flea
markets. Easy access to major highways like interstates
410, 37, 281 and 35 is also a
bonus.
According to Flores, most
residents are families with
children. School buses conveniently pick-up and dropoff students inside the gated
community at a designated
bus stop and there’s even a
playground for all youngsters
to enjoy.
Just recently, they hosted a
Día De Los Niños event that
featured a food truck, waterslide, moonwalk and a raffle
that allowed a lucky winner
to choose between a new bike
and one month’s free rent.
The biggest perk you can
find at Crestwood Estates
though, is the ability to make
the dream of homeownership
a reality.
Flores says one of the ways
they do this is by doing background checks, rather than
credit evaluations.
“Our down payment is low
and we have low monthly
payments,” Flores added.
Monthly house payments
start at $450, but rent goes as
low as $265 for a singlewide
manufactured home and $285
for a doublewide.
In terms of space, homes
can be as compact as a threebedroom, three-bath 1,200
square foot singlewide and
as spacious as a 4 bedroom,
2 baths 2,200 square foot
doublewide.
It’s also important to note
that all homes are fairly new,
the older models were built
in 2012 and they’re currently
manufacturing new ones to fit
your needs.
Moreover, residents can
enjoy concrete streets and
parking as well as on-site
management and City of San
Antonio water and sewer
services.
The mobile home park
is pet friendly with certain
restrictions, but for the most
part, your furry family members are also welcome.
Crestwood Estates is located at 12800 Applewhite

UT Health Science Center receives new funding for health care in the Rio Grande Valley
By Catherine Duncan
The University of Texas Health
Science Center at San Antonio
was one of seven organizations
announced by Methodist Healthcare Ministries of South Texas
Inc. (MHM) to take part in Sí
Texas: Social Innovation for a
Healthy South Texas.
As a sub-grantee, the UT
Health Science Center San Antonio will receive $846,530 over
two years, with a match possibility that could bring the total to
$1,693,060.
The money is part of a $13 million investment made by MHM
to support innovative models addressing the health care concerns
of South Texas.
The grant will fund primary
care behavior health services
through the Family Health Center
in Edinburg. While the School
of Medicine at the UT Health
Science Center San Antonio applied for the grant and is initially
receiving the funding, this program will be transitioned to The
University of Texas Rio Grande
Valley as of September 1, 2015.
Sí Texas is a project powered
by the Corporation for National
and Community Service’s Social
Innovation Fund (SIF) to support
proven approaches to addressing
critical social issues.
MHM’s investment is made
possible by a grant in 2014 from
SIF to help strengthen the channel
of state and local governments
and service providers to implement Sí Texas: Social Innovation
for a Healthy South Texas.
One of seven organizations
serving the Rio Grande Valley,
the UT Health Science Center
San Antonio/UTRGV project
was introduced as part of the
inaugural cohort of sub-grantees
of Sí Texas — a five-year project
intended to stimulate improve-
ments in behavioral health and
chronic disease in South Texas.
“This project continues our
tradition of support for the health
care of the community. We’ve
been present in South Texas
for more than 30 years through
the Family Medicine Residency
Program in McAllen,” Carlos R.
Jaén, M.D., Ph.D., professor and
chair of the Department of Family
and Community Medicine at the
UT Health Science Center San
Antonio, said. “This grant from
Methodist Healthcare Ministries
provides another step in our longlasting collaboration and partnership within the Rio Grande Valley
for the benefit of these patients
and communities.”
Francisco Fernandez, M.D.,
founding dean of the School of
Medicine at the UT Rio Grande
Valley, said UTRGV and its
School of Medicine are pleased
to share in this collaboration with
six other organizations focusing
their efforts on improving the
health of the citizens of the Rio
Grande Valley.
“What the Si Texas Project
plans to achieve aligns perfectly
with the mission of our university
and School of Medicine, which is
to connect science with the community and improve health care
in the Valley,” he said. “I can’t
think of a more strategic way to
utilize these funds for the benefit
of this historically medically underserved area. We are grateful
for this very generous grant.”
The health care program created by this grant will replicate
the successful Primary Care
Behavioral Health model championed by Drs. Kirk Strosahl
and Patricia Robinson of Mountainview Consulting Group. In
partnership with them, Deepu
George, Ph.D., project director
and assistant clinical professor of
family and community medicine
with the UT Health Science Cen-
ter San Antonio, and his team will
implement both onsite and offsite
training to help both programs
improve their abilities to offer
integrated behavioral health care
to local residents.
The purpose of the grant is
three-fold: to provide a model for
best practices; to increase access
to care; and to, by implementing
an integrated behavioral health
model, prepare young physicians
to think about the health care of
tomorrow as an integrated, interprofessional endeavor.
After an open, competitive application process, the inaugural
cohort of sub-grantees received
awards ranging from $250,000
to $2 million. The sub-grants are
intended to amplify existing, integrated behavioral health models
that will develop proven methodology to carry services to communities with high rates of poverty,
depression, diabetes, obesity and
associated risk factors.
“We are thrilled these seven
organizations emerged as the
trail blazers that will help test
strategies that prove to be the
most effective, as evidenced by
an evaluation of their models,
to address these health issues,”
MHM President & CEO Kevin
C. Moriarty said. “As a grant
maker and direct service provider
in this region, we are grateful
to the Social Innovation Fund,
a program of the Corporation
for National and Community
Service, for recognizing that the
best way to encourage innovation
and to learn what truly works to
solve a problem is to invest in it
through organizations that know
the communities and the populations they serve.”
The Sí Texas Project, through
its sub-grantees, will attempt
to build an intricate network of
cross-sector partnerships that will
lead region-wide improvements
in those conditions.
Foster care myths debunked Alzheimer’s Disease: Overcoming

4,500 children in foster care in San

months or years to decide. Many
parents or families may not take
the initial step to become a licensed
foster family because of the number
of unanswered questions that can be
attributed to myths or misperceptions about foster care.
Let’s start squashing foster care
myths!
You have to be married to foster.
In fact, you can be married,
single, cohabitating or partnered as a
foster parent. The Children’s Shelter
proudly serves all types of families.
No matter your household composition, we ask that you provide a safe
and loving home willing to commit
to the trauma-informed care of chil-
dren in need of a temporary home.
You have to be a stay at home
parent to foster.
Although some foster children
could benefit from a stay-at-home
parent, it is not a requirement. We
have current foster families with one
or both parents who work outside of
the home. There is assistance available to qualifying foster care parents
to help with child care.
Foster children all have behavior problems.
Children in foster care have
sustained trauma due to their abuse
and neglect, but they thrive in a
consistent and nurturing environment. Educational, therapeutic, and
medical resources are available to
children in care who may need additional assistance.
You cannot foster if you are
over 50 years of age.
There is no age limit for fostering.
In fact, some of our most dedicated
foster parents are retired or those
with adult children. Families bring a
wealth of knowledge and experience
to caring for abused and neglected
children. However, you can begin
fostering as young as 23 years old!
There is no support for foster
parents.
In addition to monthly foster care
reimbursement, foster children are
automatically eligible for free school
lunches, Medicaid, and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program
(SNAP). The Children’s Shelter
assigns a skilled foster care specialist
with each prospective family. The
foster care specialist meets with the
family and guides them through the
entire licensure process. Additionally, The Children’s Shelter has
on-site support of a therapist and
psychiatrist, medical services, dental
care, free foster care training, annual
family events and through a grant
by the Beaumont Foundation, The
Children’s Shelter is able to provide
$300 dollars a year towards the
purchase of new clothing and shoes
per foster child.
For more information about becoming a foster parent, please call
(210) 212-2590 or join us for one
of our bi-monthly inquiry meetings.
The schedule for the meetings and
other foster care information may
be found on our website at www.

stigma and why it’s important
Alzheimer’s Association
Facing stigma is often a primary
concern of people living with Alzheimer’s and their care partners.
Those with the disease report being misunderstood because of the
myths and misconceptions others
have about the disease.
“If we’re going to find a cure,
and we’re going to get the research
and support that we need behind
us, we need to have people coming
out and not be ashamed of their
diagnosis,” says Joan U., a person
living with Alzheimer’s.
Why we need to fight Alzheimer’s stigma
Stigma is the use of negative
labels to identify a person with a
disability or illness. Stigma around
Alzheimer’s disease exists, in part,
due to the lack of public awareness
and understanding of the disease,
preventing people from:
• Seeking medical treatment
when symptoms are present
• Receiving an early diagnosis or
any diagnosis at all
• Living the best quality of life
possible while they are able to
do so
• Making plans for their future
• Benefitting from available
treatments
• Developing a support system
• Participating in clinical trials
Stigma and lack of awareness
also impacts Alzheimer’s disease
research. The government funds
Alzheimer’s research at lower rates
than other diseases, even when the
cost of caring for Alzheimer’s disease is significantly higher.
The experience of Alzheimer’s
stigma
Stigma and stereotypes are
significant obstacles to well-being
and quality of life for those with
dementia and their families. Here
are some examples of the stigma
you may experience:
• A diagnosis may test friendships. Friends may refuse to believe your diagnosis or withdraw
from your life, leaving a feeling of
abandonment or isolation.
• Relationships with family may
change. Family members may not
want to talk about the disease,
perceive you as having little or
no quality of life, or may avoid
interacting with you.
• Others may approach your care
partner to ask about you rather
than asking you directly how you
are doing.
• The reaction of some friends
and family to your diagnosis may
prevent you from seeking help
from others.

When Shaq broke into his usual

Gregg Popovich: “Le faltó ayuda a Tim Duncan”
Por José I. Franco
[email protected]
By Jessica Duran
[email protected]
With a tough series loss to the
Los Angeles Clippers, the Spurs
franchise now has to focus on offseason business. With only a handful
of players still on contract heading
into next season, the franchise will
have a busy summer ahead of them.
The Spurs have not been in a
situation where they needed to sign
more than two key players for the
last few years. Spurs fan-favorites,
Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Kawhi
Leonard, and Danny Green are all
among the free agents this year.
With this unsettling news, the Spurs
are going to be faced with seeing an
almost “new-look” team.
While even Coach Gregg Popovich has questioned his own return,
he has made it clear that he would
love to return to the team and not
retire. As far as Duncan and Ginobili
go when it comes to retirement, it
depends on Duncan. The Spurs have
a good shot at seeing a return from
Duncan with a smaller contract.
Duncan loves to play and after this
year, now at the age of 39, he doesn’t
look like he is slowing down.
As for Ginobili, it’s a different
story. He loves to play the game and
is a highly competitive player but he
is also a guy who loves his ‘family
very much. Ginobili has said many
times that he has thought throughout
the season about being with his kids
instead of playing. He’s a family
man, and maybe it is time to take
a step back and enjoy his family.
Retirement or not, Ginobili has had
a tremendous career. Winning four
NBA Championships, and a Sixth
Man of the Year award plus an
Olympic gold medal, he has made
this organization, San Antonio, and
Argentina proud. After recently
stating a return if Duncan returns,
his future is up in the air.
For the young superstar Kawhi
Leonard, he has had an up and
down year. Struggling with multiple
injuries including an eye infection
that has not fully healed, Leonard
has still made a tremendous impact
for the Spurs. The former Finals
MVP won the Defensive Player of
the Year Award. Leonard is a force
to be reckoned with in this league.
With the money saved in the cap
room for the Spurs, they can offer
him a max contract. Leonard loves
the city of San Antonio and loves
playing for the Spurs.
With the circus juggling of players to fit in the Spurs cap room where
does that leave Danny Green? Green
has had another solid year as a starter
and role player. Although having
neither a fantastic or horrible year,
the big question is whether he should
get paid more or not. With the Spurs
eyes focused on Duncan, Leonard,
Ginobili, and other free agents like
Lamarcus Aldridge from Portland
and Marc Gasol from Memphis,
Green might get left in the dark. No
one knows for sure if he has proved
his value yet. Green’s future with the
team is truly up in the air.
As for other free agents on the
Spurs roster, look for a return from
Aron Baynes, Cory Joseph, and
possibly Matt Bonner. As for Marco
Bellineli and Jeff Ayers, their time
might be up here in San Antonio.
“Estoy orgulloso del trabajo
que realizó Tim Duncan durante
la serie de cuartos de final contra
Clippers de Los Ángeles. Duncan
fue el más consistente en la ofensiva y defensiva. Pudo capitanear
el equipo una vez más de acuerdo
a nuestro plan de juego. Sin embargo, cabe anotar, que no se le dio
la ayuda suficiente para continuar
adelante en el oeste. Siento que le
fallamos a Duncan en darle mayor
ayuda. Timmy me sigue impresionando por su profesionalismo
y disciplina sobre la cancha”, expresó Gregg Popovich, entrenador
en jefe del pentacampeón Spurs
de San Antonio, en su rueda de
prensa sostenida ante los medios
que cubren la fuente.
Popovich, al día siguiente de su
arribo de Los Ángeles, California,
convocó a su rueda de prensa
anual con motivo de fin de temporada, en la cual guió a los Spurs
a la conquista de 55 victorias por
27 derrotas, sumando a su foja
personal 1,022 triunfos por 457
derrotas, en un lapso de 19 años
dirigiendo a la franquicia Silver
& Black.
La serie Spurs vs. Clippers se
fue a toda la ruta hasta el séptimo
partido (que se jugó en el Staples
Center de Los Ángeles).
San Antonio con 3 victorias, por
2 de Los Ángeles, tuvo la oportunidad de clasificarse a semifinales
en su propia casa el AT&T Center,
donde el jueves 30 de abril se jugó
el sexto cotejo, teniendo la ventaja
de ser el anfitrión ante su propia
base de seguidores. Clippers con
su plan de juego no hizo quedar
mal al estratega Doc Rivers, quien
después de 2 horas con 45 minutos
estuvo celebrando la victoria con
lo que logró empatar la serie 3-3.
Duncan, en su turno en el pódium, reconoció que los Clippers jugaron un gran partido dominando
el segundo tiempo del encuentro
ganado con marcador de 102 a 96,
asegurando que el séptimo partido
la prioridad era ganarlo.
Las cosas no salieron como
Duncan lo deseó en el séptimo
partido.

se volvió a imponer ganando con
pizarra de 111-109, pasando a disputarle la semifinal a los Rockets
de Houston, al que victimaron en
su primera cotejo celebrado en el
Toyota Center con marcador de
117-101, con ello Clippers dejó
ver su clase triunfadora en el oeste.
“Spurs tiene una gran organización, con uno de los mejores
entrenador de la NBA al frente.
Gregg Popovich ha hecho de los
Spurs una franquicia de mucha
disciplina. En nuestra serie se jugó
buena calidad de baloncesto, hubo
acciones de todas, culminándose
con un ambiente deportivo y sin
faltas que lamentar. La disciplina que mostraron jugadores de
ambos equipos es lo que más me
gustó y ahora no queda más que
seguir adelante”, apuntó el estratega angelino Doc Rivers.
Tim Duncan, al final de la serie,
tuvo alicientes palabras para el
capitán rival, el guardia estelar
Chris Paul, quien jugó gran parte
del séptimo partido dolido de la
pantorrilla izquierda, malestar
muscular que no le impidió realizar un espectacular disparo triple
desde casi media cancha faltando
segundos para expirar el tercer
periodo, y luego repetir la hazaña
al comienzo del cuarto tiempo.
Paul cerró su labor contra Spurs
anotando 27 puntos, dos los cuales
fueron los que selló su triunfo.
“Chris Paul es un competidor
increíble, duro de darse por vencido, con su liderazgo Clippers
irá lejos”, añadió Duncan, quien
a la vez descartó reservar opinión
sobre si regresará a la duela en la
siguiente temporada. Por igual
opinó sobre su compañero, el
guardia argentino Manu Ginóbili,
sexto hombre del Spurs. Duncan
dejo entrever que la persona que
aportará la noticia sobre el retorno
de ambos será el propio entrenador en jefe Gregg Popovich.
Ginóbili, tras la eliminación de
Spurs, dijo que su retiro lo estaría
evaluando con su familia, dándose
tiempo para ver qué es lo que le
espera en el futuro.
“Reconozco que a mi edad (38
años) ya me es difícil corretear
rivales de 23 años; sin embargo,
me tomaré el tiempo necesario
para ver si debo seguir jugando
baloncesto”, comentó Ginóbili.
Posteriormente, en su natal Argentina, Manu dio pormenores sobre
la continuación de su brillante
carrera por las canchas de Europa
y Estados Unidos, indicando que
en un límite de un mes tomará la
decisión de retornar a la cancha o
hacerse a la idea de una vez por todas retirarse como jugador activo.
“Todavía no hemos considerado si Tim Duncan y Manu
Ginóbili se quedan con el equipo.
Hay muchos agentes libres en el
plantel. Dentro del margen legal,
y a su tiempo daré la información
oficial, por lo pronto me rehuso a
proporcionar todo tipo de información al respecto. Todo a su de-
bido tiempo, y en fecha próxima”,
exhortó Popovich.
El capitán Duncan, de 39 años
de edad, nativo de St. Croix, Islas
Vírgenes, con estudios superiores
en Wake Forest University, fue
seleccionado por Spurs durante
el 1997 NBA Draft como número
uno en la primera ronda.
En la pasada temporada, la cual
fue su número 18 (consistente de
82 partidos), tuvo marca personal
13.7 puntos, 9.1 rebotes y 3.0
asistencias por partido, ello debido
a que se le estuvo administrando
sus minutos de acción.
En la serie del playoff de cuartos de final en el oeste, Duncan,
en lo que puede ser su última
participación en postemporada,
dejó marca personal de 7 partidos
jugados, 35.7 minutos de acción,
11.1 rebotes, 3.3 asistencias, 1.29
en robo de balón. 1.43 en bloqueos, 1.0 en perdida de balón.
3.7 en faltas, y 3.3 en pérdidas de
asistencias por partido.
Trio of Roadrunners earn All-Conference USA honors
By Jordan Korphage
UTSA Roadrunners Megan
Low and Randee Crawford
earned first-team All-Conference USA honors, while Kendall Burton was a second-team
selection and she claimed a spot
on the All-Freshman Team, the
league announced on Wednesday.
With her second consecutive
All-C-USA honor, Low became
just the second player in program history to earn first-team
all-league laurels three times.
The Spring native was named to
the Southland Conference’s top
squad as well as its Freshman
of the Year in 2012 before last
season’s C-USA honor.
Low is hitting .354 this spring
with 38 runs, 51 hits, 10 doubles, a pair of triples, 16 homers
(3rd in C-USA) and 40 RBIs.
The senior first baseman ranks
second in C-USA with 113 total
bases, third with a .785 slugging

page 2-B .513 on-base percentage. Low,

who set the school’s career
walks record earlier in the season, was pitched around most
of the campaign and she coaxed
a single-season record 41 free
passes. In conference action,
Low paced the squad with a .379
batting average to go along with
five doubles, a triple, six homers
and 15 RBIs.
Crawford picked up her first
all-conference honor after she
hit .281 in the regular season
with a league-leading 18 homers
and 62 RBIs. The sophomore
designated player added five
doubles for a .635 slugging percentage, which ranks seventh in
the circuit. During C-USA play,
the Livingston native hit .286
and led the conference with 11
homers and 30 RBIs, which included a two-homer and schoolrecord eight-RBI game against
No. 25 UAB on March 22. Both
of her multi-homer games came
in conference play and she hit a
round-tripper in each of her last
three league contests.
In all, Low and Crawford are
the most potent duo in C-USA
as the pair combine for 34 homers and 102 RBIs. Additionally,
this is the second consecutive
season that the Roadrunners
have placed two players on the
league’s top squad after Low
and Jori Fox took home the
honor in 2014.
Meanwhile, Burton became
the first UTSA freshman to earn
all-conference honors since Low
in 2012. The Missouri City native’s .372 batting average is
tied for tops on the squad and
it is tied for 10th in C-USA.
The outfielder ranks third in the
circuit with 112 total bases and
68 hits, while her school-record
seven triples pace the league
and rank eighth in the nation.
In all, she ranked second on the
team with 25 extra-base hits (12
doubles, seven triples, six homers) and she totaled 40 RBIs out
of the leadoff spot in the batting
order. Burton hit .341 during CUSA play and paced the league
with nine doubles and three
triples in those contests.

Victoria Sprint Cup en Talladega
Special to La Prensa
San Antonio Stars select forward
Dearica Hamby from Wake Forest
University with the No.6 pick in the
2015 WNBA Draft presented by
State Farm. The Stars also acquired
Alex Montgomery from the New
York Liberty in exchange for ninth
overall pick.
Additionally the Stars selected
Dragana Stankovic with the 30th
overall pick, and Nikki Moody
with the 33rd overall selection. A
6-foot-3 forward, Hamby is the
all-time leader in points scored for
Wake Forest. In her senior season,
she averaged 20.3 points and 10.7
rebounds in 35.8 minutes on the
way to earning All-ACC First-Team
honors. She was the first Demon
Deacon to lead the ACC in both
rebounds and points per game in
2014-15. Overall in her collegiate
career, Hamby played in 129 games,
averaging 14.0 points and 7.9 rebounds in 28.8 minutes.
“When we made the trade to get
the sixth pick, this was a player we
were hopeful would be available,”
said Head Coach and General
Manager Dan Hughes. “This is obviously very exciting to us. She is a
combination of a lot of things. First
of all she is very hard-working, has
a high degree of athleticism and has
scored at some incredible rates. She
is an incredible good fit for us so we
feel very fortunate she was there.”
“I’m so excited,” said Hamby.
“I am ready to learn, ready to work
and ready to play for the Stars. I am
going to bring everything I have to
the team.”
Montgomery, a 6-foot-1 guard/
forward, was originally selected
10th overall by the New York
Liberty in the 2011 WNBA Draft.
In 2014 Montgomery played in 34
games, averaging 5.3 points, 3.9
rebounds and 1.0 assists in 21.9
minutes. Overall in her WNBA
career, Montgomery has played in
124 games, averaging 4.2 points,

San Antonio Stars selected forward Dearica Hamby. Hamby is
the all-time leader in points scored for Wake Forest University.

3.3 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 16.2
minutes. Montgomery has shot 38.3
percent from the three-point line in
her career.
“With first-round picks we had
a chance to add a veteran player,”
said Hughes. “Alex has a chance
to be a very good defender and she
has incredible ability to stretch the
floor and take three-pointers. We
will work with her and give her an
opportunity to grow in other areas.
She’s been in the league for four
years and I think that experience also
fits in nicely with our team.”
A 6-foot-5 center from Serbia,
Stankovic currently plays in Hungary with UE Sopron and averages 9.8 points and 5.1 rebounds in
16.0 minutes. While with Sopron,
Stankovic teamed up with Stars
guard/forward Kayla McBride during this past WNBA offseason.
“We are very high on Stankovic,”
Hughes said. “She played with McBride in the offseason and we had
a chance to know quite a bit about
her. She’s a young player, but one
that has a lot of potential.”
Moody started 30 of 31 games for
Iowa State last season, averaging a
career-best 14.1 points, 6.8 assists
and 3.6 rebounds per game. The
5-8 guard was a WBCA Honorable Mention All-American and
a WBCA All-Region Nominee in
2015. Over her collegiate career,
Moody averaged 11.3 points, 6.0
assists and 3.8 rebounds in 32.7
minutes over 125 games.
“We wanted to add another point
guard to this training camp and
I’ve watched Nikki play for years,”
said Hughes. “She’s played for a
great coach and she has been a very
consistent performer at the point
position. We are excited to see her
compete with the group we have in
training camp.”
The Stars tip off the 2015 season,

Rosa Health System and HE-B, in Phoenix against the defending champion Mercury on June

Es difícil decidir qué es mejor:
la pasión que Dale Earnhardt Jr.
siente por el Talladega Spurspeedway o la pasión que los
fanáticos de Talladega sienten por
Dale Earnhardt Jr.
En una tarde gloriosa, Earnhardt Jr. terminó con una orden
de una palabra para su equipo y
los aficionados en las tribunas:
“¡A celebrar!”.
Earnhardt Jr. recién había cruzado la meta con 0.159 segundos
de ventaja sobre su compañero de equipo en Hendrick Motorsports,
Jimmie Johnson,
para llevarse la
victoria en la
GEICO 500
de la NASCAR Sprint
Cup; su 6ta
victoria en
esta pista y su
boleto casi seguro para el Chase
por la NASCAR Sprint
Cup, competencia que podría
ser su quinta consecutiva.
Paul Menard finalizó tercero
seguido por Ryan Blaney, Martin
Truex Jr.
El líder de la Clasificación de
Pilotos, Kevin Harvick, se quedó
en el octavo escaño, tras recuperarse de accidente al inicio de
la carrera.
La victoria de Earnhardt Jr.
llegó apenas 24 horas después de
que el propio piloto reconociera
su responsabilidad para cumplir
un buen papel en la casa de sus
fanáticos: “Tengo que salir a
liderar”, dijo Earnhardt Jr.
Y eso fue exactamente lo que
hizo: 67 de las 188 vueltas para
ser exactos, para poder llegar a
Victory Lane (Callejón de la Victoria), y empezar una emocionada
celebración.
“Esto es muy emocionante.
No había ganado aquí desde
hace mucho tiempo (noviembre,
2004), además, el cumpleaños
de mi padre fue hace un par de
días. Hoy todo va bien conmigo.
No sé por qué siento que no lo
merezco. Es demasiada alegría y
emociones”, dijo Dale.
A diferencia de muchas carreras recientes en Talladega,
las últimas 24 vueltas fueron
esencialmente en
formación
de uno
en final,
primero con un
grupo de 10 autos y luego otro
de 20.
“No sé qué fue lo que creó eso,
que nos llevó a todos ir (en línea)
por arriba”, dijo Johnson.
“No pasa siempre, pero hoy fue
uno de esos días”, apuntó el piloto
Jimmie Johnson.
Cuando apareció la bandera
blanca para indicar la última vuelta de la carrera, Johnson intentó
separarse del grupo con Blaney
pegado en su defensa trasera y
con Denny Hamlin, ganador de
la carrera el año pasado.
“Sabía que iba a esperar hasta
el final y eso fue lo que hizo. No
quise echar a perder las cosas para
los dos. Intentó adelantarse, pero
no lo logró”, apuntó Earnhardt Jr.
Cuando los líderes se acercaban
a la meta, Carl Edwards perdió el
control y ocasionó que otros autos
se estrellaran entre sí contra el
muro exterior, pero eso no interrumpió la carrera, y Earnhardt
Jr. empezó la celebración de su
victoria.
“Todos están felices en Talladega. Así que todo está bien”,
dijo Truex Jr.
La carrera contó con un solo
“Big One”, el gran accidente de
la jornada que ocurrió en la vuelta
47, cuando Trevor Bayne fue
adelantado por la derecha por Menard, al tiempo que Kurt
Busch se le acercaba
por la izquierda.
Fue un “problema
doble”, dijo
Bayne más
tarde, quien
perdió el
control de su
Ford No. 6
y se estrelló
contra el
muro exterior llevándose con él
a otros 14 autos. Ese
accidente dejó fuera de
competencia a Kasey Kahne,
quien había empezado desde
la primera fila, también a Kyle
Larson y Greg Biffle, y en su última
carrera en reemplazo de Kyle Busch,
y David Ragan en el Toyota No.
18. Fuera de eso, la jornada fue
relativamente tranquila, con solo
seis banderas amarillas, hasta que el
auto de Austin Dillon se incendió en
la vuelta 156. Jeff Gordon también
tuvo un día de frustraciones tras ser
castigado por exceso de velocidad
en los pits – la segunda vez en cinco
carreras–, lo que arruinó sus posibilidades de haber sido el triunfador.
Tras el castigo, su jefe de equipo

Sardelich shines as Rattler Softball
Wins Heartland postseason crown Ginóbili admite que vive un momento
By Chad Peters
Nicole Sardelich became St.
Mary’s all-time hits leader last
week, a historic moment that paled
in comparison to what she had in
store for the rest of the Heartland
Conference Tournament championship game. Sardelich blasted a
go-ahead RBI double off the leftfield wall in the top of the eight
innings to spur the Rattlers past
rival St. Edward’s 2-1 in extras
at the Softball Stadium inside the
The Park at St. Mary’s University.
Two innings earlier, Sardelich
sent a solo shot over the right field
wall that evened up the game at 1-1
to help No.7 ranked Rattlers (42-9)
secure the postseason championship to go along with their regularseason co-championship.
It was an MVP-worthy performance for the Heartland Conference Player of the Year, who
earned Tournament Most Valuable
Player honors after batting 3 for 4
with two RBIs, a home run and a
run scored. Ace Vianna Gutiérrez
Touchtone-a top 10 finalist for the
NFCA National Player of the Year
award- was just as sensational,
scattering four hits over eight
innings and allowing just one
unearned run to improve to 25-4
on the season.
The victory marked the Rat-
tlers’ fifth over St. Edward’s this
season, as StMU improved to 5-0
on the season against its “Battle
of the Saints” rival. Hanna Fields
recorded the fourth of the Rattlers’ four hits in the game, going
1 for 2 with a walk. Fields joined
Sardelich and Gutiérrez Touchtone
on the All-Tournament Team,
as did pitcher Hope Russell and
outfielder Taylor Vidrine.
St. Mary’s, the league’s cochampions of the regular season,
has now won the regular-season or
postseason title 14 times in the last
15 years. With the championship
victory, the Rattlers earned an automatic bit to the NCAA Division
II South Central Regional.
de incertidumbre y sopesa retirarse
Free agency...(continued from page 1-B)
One player who is under contract the mistake of giving him a major to trade him away. As the highest
whose future with the team is un- contract before fully developing, paid Spur, having made 11 million
clear is Tiago Splitter. After making the Spurs are stuck with deciding last year, the Spurs are likely to
do a sign and trade with him. This
is where Lamarcus Aldridge and
Marc Gasol come into play. As
two of the big name free agents
this year, the Spurs will likely
make an attempt to go after one
or the other. Splitter, while he has
been in San Antonio, has had just
two solid seasons. Although being
slowed down by injuries, he’s not
yet bounced back from them like
the Spurs have liked.
With interest from Aldridge and
Gasol, the Spurs can’t pass up a
chance to get a big superstar to play
alongside possibly Duncan and
Boris Diaw. Although in a tough
race to land one of the players, the
Spurs have one pitch line that some
teams can’t tell them. Do you just
want to get paid and have a small
chance of a possible championship
or do you want to get paid and have
a tremendously great chance at
glory with a Championship?
Whatever the future holds for this
team, the Spurs franchise and fans
are in for a long and bumpy summer. All we know is that next year
we’re coming back strong and with
a vengeance. Clippers, that means
we’re coming after you. Until next
season, Go Spurs Go!

EFE - El argentino Emanuel
Ginóbili admitió que atraviesa
“un momento de incertidumbre”
en su carrera tras la temprana
eliminación de los San Antonio
Spurs en la primera fase de ‘playoffs’ de la NBA a manos de Los
Ángeles Clippers.
“Dejar de hacer lo que hiciste el 100% de tu vida adulta
es un momento único, que da
un montón de incertidumbre.
Seguro que no tengo procesado
el retiro, porque uno tiene un
momento de dudas, porque por
momentos creo que es el tiempo
y en otros que no”, sostuvo Manu
en su habitual columna del diario
‘La Nación’ de Argentina.
El argentino de 37 años, ganador de cuatro títulos en la NBA
con los Spurs (2003, 2005, 2007
y 2014) expresó que se tomará un
mes para definir si sigue jugando
al baloncesto.
“Es cómo lo sentís o cuánto te
cuesta armar el bolsito para ir a
cada una de las ciudades o jugar
cinco partidos en una semana.
O jugar 85 partidos en 165 días.
Así que es un momento de incertidumbre”, expresó el jugador
más importante en la historia del
baloncesto argentino.
“Pop dijo que nos quería a Tim
y a mí en la próxima temporada.
Son palabras que me hacen las
cosas más difíciles. La verdad es
que si en la franquicia hubiesen
manifestado que no me querían o
que era momento de reconstruir y
que querían un equipo más joven,
me hubiesen facilitado la tarea
enormemente”, dijo con respecto
a las expresiones del técnico de
los Spurs, Gregg Popovich, tras
la eliminación.
“Hoy es momento de estar con
la familia al 100%. Many me dijo
que la determinación la tengo
que tomar yo y que ella me va a
acompañar en lo que decida. Que
le parece bien lo que haga. Así
que me la dejó más complicada,
pensé que iba a ser una decisión
de equipo”, dijo con respecto a
una conversación con su mujer.
“Voy a esperar este mes y ver
cómo me siento. Si me siento
como un exjugador o no. Si empiezo a extrañar o cómo lo siente
mi cuerpo. Es un momento único,
nunca estuve en esta situación”,
finalizó el jugador que cumplió
su duodécima temporada en San
Antonio.

Este domingo, Día de las Madres,
la Soccer Liga de Los Altos (SLDA),
que preside su fundador señor Juan
Padilla, estará de manteles largos
celebrando la premiación a los
mejores equipos y futbolistas individuales en las categorías de Primera
División, y Primera A (de ascenso).
La temporada de invierno se vio
bastante bien representada con equipos que se estuvieron disputando la
supremacía de la tabla general que
los llevó a su respectiva clasificación
de la liguilla.
La división mayor en la jornada
dominical pasada registró triunfos
del equipo Leones Negros que –sin
sudar el uniforme– eliminaron al
Deportivo Atlético.
La planilla del consistente club
Real Nacional, comandado por la
terna de Enrique Carreto y Edgar
Lira (ambos patrocinadores y directivos), se agenciaron su boleto a la
gran final (contra Leones Negros),
derrotando al duro rival Club Deportivo Talgua, que dirige Miguel
Ángel Perdomo Caballero.
Real Nacional había eliminado
en semifinal al Deportivo Juvenil
con marcador de 3-1 goles. Ante
Talgua, sus goleadores fueron el
delantero Jonathan Sandoval, quien
anotó 2 goles, y 1 del defensa Ángel Aldape, quien en la temporada
anotó 14 pepinazos. Sandoval, ante
Juvenil, anotó un espectacular gol al
estilo “Chilena”. Por Talgua anotó el
primer tanto el delantero Ángel José
Perdomo. El segundo gol lo ejecutó
Ever Escalanta, quien cobró tiro de
penalti, tras haber recibido contundente empujón dentro del área chica.
El arquero Luis González del Real
Nacional finalizó con gran actuación
atajando tres disparos a gol. Los
rivales desperdiciaron tres goles ya
que sus disparos fueron a parar en el
travesaño de la cabaña resguardada
por Luis González.
“La premiación va a ser como
se acostumbra (6 p.m.). Habrá
trofeos para amabas divisiones, así
como el donativo económico para
el campeón de la primera división.
En la siguiente temporada la bolsa
económica será de mil dólares al
nuevo campeón”, detalló el presidente Padilla. Directivos de equipos
que deseen registrarse en la temporada larga de LSDA pueden obtener
información llamando al teléfono

anotó el gol que les quitó la blanqueada contra Real Nacional. Su
disparo a la portería rival fue ejecutado en línea al ras del césped,
lo que le valió ser aplaudido por sus compañeros y seguidores.

Cardinal Rodriguez speaks of gestures, manners
of Pope Francis in directing the Church
By J. Michael Parker
Today’s Catholic
His Eminence Óscar Andrés
Rodríguez Maradiaga, SDB, archbishop of Tegucigalpa, Honduras,
challenged seminarians in formation at Assumption Seminary to
be modern-day apostles with the
missionary heart of St. Paul, never
tiring of doing good, as Jesus did,
wherever they find people in need.
Cardinal Rodríguez, a member
of the Council of Eight Cardinals
who advise Pope Francis on matters of governance of the church,
came to San Antonio April 27 at the
invitation of Archbishop Gustavo
García-Siller, MSpS, to be the final
speaker in Assumption Seminary’s
year-long Centennial Lecture Series. The cardinal himself found
enthusiastic encouragement as he
spoke during an afternoon news
conference at the seminary and
again in an evening presentation
capping the institution’s Centennial
Lecture Series at Oblate School of
Theology’s Whitley Theological
Center on “The Church Today and
Implications for the Priesthood”.
Cardinal Rodríguez is no stranger to the Alamo city, having visited
the South Texas archdiocese many
times and worked closely with
then-Archbishop Patrick Flores
on the relief efforts for Honduras
after Hurricane Mitch ravaged the
Central American nation in 1999.
He has been a global voice on such
issues as migration, human trafficking, and other issues important
to Pope Francs and the Catholic
Church.
He stated at the outset of his
address that for the past 40 years,
he has been a moral theologian,
first in Guatemala and currently
in his native Tegucigalpa, and has
remained in frequent contact with
seminarians.
“I love to be among seminarians,
to listen, know and experience their
feelings,” he declared. “The seminary is a treasure; it’s the greatest
gift of God to a diocese. It’s the
heart of the diocese, and we see
these 100 years of Assumption
Seminary as a period of fruit. More
than 800 priests have been formed
in this seminary.”
Although he travels to Rome
often, the cardinal vowed, “I will
never stop teaching,” and then
quipped, “unless ‘Dr. Alzheimer’s’
gives me a special reason,” prompting the audience to roar with laughter. He said the days he teaches
are days of re-creation -- “to try to
re-create my faith, to re-create these
young people who want to follow
Christ in the priesthood. For me,
the seminary is like a garden where
I can find peace and a lot of joy.”
Cardinal Rodríguez appropriated themes from Pope Francis’
apostolic exhortation Evangelii
Gaudium (“The Gospel of Joy”),
pointing out that it summarizes the
meaning of a new mental attitude,
an affective disposition, a pastoral
criterion; a way of being, thinking
and feeling that is new.
“This ‘joy of the Gospel’ must
inspire and inhabit all action within
the Church as well as action directed outwards. It is simultaneously a
centripetal and centrifugal movement. This exhortation presents a
global panorama of the world and
the challenges the Catholic Church
faces as it moves forward in response to today’s men and women,
to move outward and meet them,”
he explained.
“We must not allow ourselves
to be robbed of what is most important,” the cardinal declared,
referring to “Our mission, our
missionary enthusiasm, our joy
of evangelizing, and therefore our
hope, our community, the Gospel,
brotherly love and missionary
strength.”
He said he loves to speak with
young people about the heart of St.
Paul, and used a modern-day metaphor to express what is needed in
today’s evangelization. “One day,
St. Paul was not feeling well, so he
went to his cardiologist,” the cardi-
nal said, again leaving the rapt audience in laughter. “The cardiologist
put a stethoscope up to his heart.
What did he hear? The heart of St.
Paul was not beating like this…”
and tapped the microphone twice
and twice again, simulating the beat
of a normal human heart. He continued, “…but like this ‘Woe is me
if I do not preach the Gospel! Woe
is me if I do not preach the Gospel!’
That was his missionary heart,” the
cardinal explained as the audience
erupted once more in laughter and
then sustained applause.
Noting what St. Paul did, traveling an estimated 30,000 kilometers
“without a car, a jeep, an airplane,
a helicopter or even a horse, and all
the many dangers he faced -- one
day he received a crown of flowers;
by the next day, he was half-dead
because they were stoning him,”
the cardinal observed that Paul never became disappointed because, he
said, “‘Nothing -- nobody -- could
take me out of the love of Christ.’”
Then he commented that in today’s Church, “We are a little ill.
We have missionary cardiac insufficiency,” the prelate said as the delighted audience roared with laughter yet again. “That’s the diagnosis.
What do we need? When a person
is ill with cardiac insufficiency, he
goes to the doctor, who puts in a
small device called…” The audience responded, “Pacemaker.” He
repeated, “Pacemaker,” adding,
“With a Pacemaker, the heart is
again very strong. We need a missionary Pacemaker,” he declared,
and again his listeners responded
with laughter and applause. “We
need to ask the Holy Spirit to put
in us a missionary Pacemaker like
the heart of St. Paul to come back
to be missionaries. Woe to me if I
do not preach the Gospel! ‘I cannot
rest peacefully because this day I
did not evangelize.’ Oh, oh, oh, that
is not a missionary attitude. We do
not allow ourselves to be robbed of
our mission,” the prelate reiterated.
He noted that Pope Francis has
said that one of the temptations of
pastoral agents is to allow oneself
to be robbed of one’s missionary
enthusiasm, falling prey to “a desire
for power or human glory at all
costs, rather than giving their lives
to others in mission,” and reminded
them that firecrackers burn out and
become useless.
Cardinal Rodríguez said that he
loves to have his chauffeur stop
his car by churches when Mass is
ending, and he studies the faces of
emerging parishioners.
“If they come out with the joy
of having celebrated Easter every
Sunday, this is a good measure
of whether we’re doing well or
if we’re mistaken. Yes! The joy
of evangelization!” But he asked,
“How can we evangelize if we have
the face of Good Friday? Francis
is repeating this very frequently.
I say to my priests, ‘I see a lot of
you always doing this (frowning).
It seems that for breakfast you’ve
had pure lemon juice and tails of
scorpions.” Another roar of laughter told him his point had hit home.
Observing the pope’s admonition not to let ourselves be robbed
of hope, the Honduran prelate
reminded listeners that the Church
is not a species moving toward
extinction, like many rare bird
and animal species shown on the
Discovery Channel.
“Some want to say that the
Catholic Church is disappearing;
seminarians are disappearing;
priests are disappearing. No way!
Nobody will take hope away from
us, because the Church is not a
human entity; it comes from the
Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is
not on a holiday or taking a very
long siesta,” the cardinal asserted,
prompting more laughter from the
audience. “He is always acting,
always working. He is the Lord
and Giver of Life, and he continues
giving life everywhere.”
Quoting Evangelii Gaudium,
Cardinal Rodríguez said, “Let us
ask the Lord to help us understand
the law of love. How much good
it does us to love one another, in
spite of everything! Saint Paul’s
exhortation is directed to each of
us: ‘Do not be overcome by evil,
but overcome evil with good. Let
us not grow weary in doing what is
right.’” Here he interjected a comment to the seminarians clustered
in the front rows of the auditorium,
referring to the last admonition:
“This is the phrase you have to put
in your room before going to bed.”
He pointed out that Pope Francis
has called for a Church “moving
outward.” He asserted, “We don’t
need our beautiful seats to be ‘a
church seated,’ and resting in peace
-- like the cemeteries,” eliciting still
another roar of laughter from listeners. “A church moving outward is
the manifestation of generous availability for action, an enterprising
attitude; as though one were open
to begin a march, a hike, or a long
journey.”
He reminded the audience of
Pope Francis’ well-known metaphor of “pastors who smell like
sheep,” commenting that “there is
no better expression than this to describe pastoral work; we cannot be
armchair priests; we cannot reduce
the priesthood to a few functional
hours in an office or in the confessional. We cannot allow ourselves
to be made into religious bureaucrats or salaried officials who
fulfill their daily quota of work and
reach certain quantifiable goals.
To be a pastor who smells like the
sheep is theologically demanding
and profound. The origin of this
concept can be found in the very
incarnation of Christ, who takes
on all aspects of humanity while
remaining God. A priest or bishop
cannot limit his pastoral action to
the formal, rigid and strict setting
of his parish, his office, the altar or
the sacristy. A pastor who smells
like his sheep moves outward to
encounter humanity in its context;
he visits families, opens the parish
to young people, risks touching the
hand of the poor with the flesh of
his hands, without prejudices, racism, phobias or misgivings.”
Cardinal Rodríguez told a humorous anecdote of an Italian
bishop who invited youth just
before Holy Week to gather at a
Marian shrine and recite the Rosary. When he went to the shrine,
he found only two women, and
he prayed the Rosary with them.
Walking home afterwards, he saw
a bar full of young people.
“Moved by the Holy Spirit, he
went into the bar,” the cardinal
said, to the delight of his audience,
“and sat down with them. Can
you imagine a bishop in his holy
vestments sitting in a bar? There
was a terrible silence. But then a
beautiful dialogue began, and it
lasted for two hours. This bishop
left very tired but very happy, and
was applauded by the many young
people in the bar. Maybe he had a
smell of beer on him, but when he
saw another bar, he went inside.
I admired him because he wasn’t
discouraged by finding only two
people praying the Rosary; he
went where his sheep were, and he
smelled like the sheep. We need to
be there, not waiting in the rectory
for people to come to us -- they
will not come. It is necessary to go
to them.”
Speaking of mercy and its way of
healing wounds, the cardinal again
quoted Pope Francis’ words to the
clergy of Rome in March 2014:
‘“Priests should be moved by their
sheep, the way Jesus saw that the
people were tired, exhausted sheep
without a shepherd. Jesus has the
heart and viscera of God. Isaiah
describes this attitude often. God
is full of tenderness for the people,
especially toward those who are
excluded, toward sinners and
the sick for whom nobody cares.
Therefore, patterned on the image
of the Good Shepherd, a priest is
a man of mercy and compassion,
who is close to his people and
serves everyone.”

entre “el trabajo del hombre” y
“el trabajo de la mujer”. Todo
trabajo —sea médico, técnico o
de apoyo humano— puede hacerlo
un hombre o una mujer y tiene el
mismo valor. Hay casos en que
tiene más sentido económico que
sea el padre quien cuide del hogar

puede poner su granito de arena de
todos modos al mantener la casa en

le queda tiempo cada día después
del que invierta siguiendo nuestro
consejo, le sugerimos que busque
un lugar en el que pueda donar
sus servicios como voluntario.
Con el conocimiento que tiene de
las finanzas, tal vez pueda ayudar a las personas que necesitan
consejo en cuanto a cómo hacer
un presupuesto y cómo invertir
mejor su dinero. Tal trabajo como
voluntario pudiera aun resultar en
un empleo remunerado....
“Dios no lo ha abandonado. Lo
cierto es que Él está muy cerca de
usted ahora mismo y quiere tener
una relación personal con usted.
El Hijo de Dios, Jesucristo, murió
en la cruz para que usted pueda
sencillamente orar en sus propias
palabras y pedirle que entre en su
corazón y transforme su vida. Él
le dará la sabiduría, la ayuda y la
fuerza necesarias para que su vida
sea productiva y satisfactoria”.

By Kathleen Judson Dove
Good Samaritan Community
Services (GSCS) is humbled
and excited to honor its second
recipient of the Good Samaritan
Award to San Antonio Business
Leader and Philanthropist, Max
Navarro.
The Good Samaritan Award
recognizes an individual who
lives out the deep truth of the
Parable of the Good Samaritan: love God and love your
neighbor. GSCS has identified
Navarro as this year’s recipient because of his willingness
to go above and beyond in a
spirit of leadership to positively
impact his neighbors and his
community.
“We are so pleased to honor
Max because he is a product of
Good Samaritan Community
Services,” GSCS CEO Jill Oettinger said. “Even after all of his
success around the world, he has
never forgotten his roots, and
continues to give back and support others striving to overcome
obstacles to reach their goals.”
Navarro founded Operational
Technologies Corporation (OpTech) in 1986, which has been
recognized throughout the years
with numerous industry awards.
Navarro has the distinction of
three White House appointments
and service on the National
Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration Committee, is a St.
Mary’s University trustee, and a
member of the U.S. Department
of Commerce’s Industry Policy
Advisory Committee for Trade
Policy Matters (IPAC). He currently serves on the board of
directors at GSCS, and was a
founding member of the Scholars Committee, which helps
outstanding GSCS high school
graduates reach their college
goals.
Newest San Antonio Corner Store presented
donation to The Children’s Shelter
By Melissa Ludwig
Corner Store celebrated the
grand opening of its newest store
on San Antonio’s West Side with
giveaways and a ribbon-cutting
ceremony on Thursday. The store
is located at 1303 Callaghan Rd.
At the ribbon-cutting, Gary
Skillern, Zone Manager for CST
Brands, Corner Store’s parent
company, presented The Children’s Shelter with a check for
$5,000 to show the company’s
commitment to the community.
“At Corner Store, we want to
be team players in the communities we serve,” Kim Lubel, President and CEO of CST Brands said.
“Our Team Members (employees)
build strong relationships with
customers, and we are excited to
meet and get to know the wonderful people in the neighborhoods
surrounding our newest San Antonio Corner Store.”
Officials from the San Antonio
Chamber of Commerce and representatives from The Children’s
Shelter, a nonprofit that provides
refuge to abused and neglected
children, attended the ceremony.
Patrons who visited the store from
9 a.m. to 12 p.m. walked away
with free samples of fresh-baked
Fresh Choices sausage kolaches
and cookies, and a free Coca-Cola
Freestyle fountain drink or Cibolo
Mountain coffee and coupons.
This year, CST Brands plans
to add 35 to 40 new-to-industry
stores to its network of more than
1,000 Corner Stores throughout
Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas,
Oklahoma, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Arizona and
California. More than half of
CST’s U.S. stores are located in
Texas, one of the fastest-growing
states in the nation.

Pre-K 4 SA student artists celebrate
by saying “Gracias San Antonio”
By Rachel Benavidez
Pre-K 4 SA students are celebrating a year of learning and
exploration with an original art
show and sale that says “thanks”
for the community’s continued
support of early childhood
education. The show called
“Gracias San Antonio”, will be
displayed from May 22 - 26 at
Cinnabar Gallery in the Blue
Star Arts Complex. Art pieces
will be auctioned online and all
proceeds will support service
project(s) in the community that
will be voted on by Pre-K 4 SA
students as part of the program’s
civic engagement curriculum.
Each piece in the show was
created by a 4-year-old student
from Pre-K 4 SA’s four Education Centers. The young artists
were asked to reflect on the
school year and express their
thoughts, interests and what
they have learned about San
Antonio’s history and culture.
“Art expression is a language that we learn very young.
Through this voice, the children
are crafting a message that is
heartfelt, and exercising one
of the most important lessons
of the academic year: to say
‘thank you,’” said Pre-K 4 SA
CEO Kathy Bruck. “Pre-K 4
SA focuses on creating a strong
foundation for a lifelong learning process,” Bruck said. “Gracias San Antonio incorporates
creativity, problem-solving,
decision-making and the importance of giving back to our
community.”
Cinnabar Gallery, located at
1420 S. Alamo St., Ste. 147,
will host the second annual
show.

AVANCE celebrates Mother
of the Year Luncheon
By Natalie Bobadilla
[email protected]
More than 400 individuals
gathered at the Valero Energy
Corporation on Friday to honor
two outstanding women as a part
of AVANCE – San Antonio’s
major annual fundraiser.
The fundraiser, known as
Mother of the Year Luncheon,
helps support AVANCE’s programs. These programs are
focused on fostering Latino
parent education and childhood
development; they’re unique
in the sense that they integrate
all aspects of home, school and
community life.
To keep these programs moving forward, the annual luncheon
gathered some of San Antonio’s finest corporations to raise
funds and simultaneously honor
two women who exemplify the
values instilled in AVANCE
parents.
Retired Sr. Vice President of
Community Affairs at USAA
Barbara Gentry was selected
by the
AVANCE – San Antonio
Board of Directors to receive
the Chairman’s Award for her
extraordinary volunteer service.
During her time at USAA,
Gentry administered USAA’s
charitable contributions program
and served as president of the
USAA Foundation as well as
president of the USAA Educational Foundation.
Moreover, Gentry has been
involved with AVANCE for
nearly two decades.
“She has not only helped us
maintain the program throughout the years, but has helped
other people to learn about the

7 p.m. and weekends from 11 a.m.
to 5 p.m. The shelter is located at

If Goliad could have a theme song, it
would be Boys Just Want To Have FUN!
Happy-go-lucky and super handsome
describe this cool guy perfectly! He is a
1 year old Rottweiler mix who is full of
energy and is looking for a forever family
who has experience with large pups. He
adores those he loves and enjoys learning
all about life. Goliad was found as a stray
but is ready for a home to call his own.
His playful side is always evident and
he would do great as a walking/running
partner! He walks well with a gentle lead
and knows these commands: sit, down,
leave it, and watch me. Goliad is known
as a fetch master and he gets along well
with others like him, so if you have pups
at home, bring them to the SAHS to meet this gorgeous dude today! Please remember
to spay/neuter your pets to help ensure every dog and cat born has a home waiting for
them. San Antonio Humane Society, Connecting Friends for Life.

Oh María, Rosa Mística, Madre de Jesús y
también Madre nuestra! Tú eres nuestra
esperanza, nuestra
fortaleza y nuestro
consuelo. Danos desde el cielo tu maternal
bendición en el nombre del Padre, del Hijo
y del Espíritu Santo,
Amén.
Rosa Mística, Inmaculada Virgen , Madre
de la gracia, en honor
de tu Divino Hijo, nos
postramos ante Ti,
para implorar la misericordia de Dios. No
por nuestros méritos,
sino por la bondad de
tu Corazón maternal,
pedimos ayuda y gracias, con la seguridad
de ser escuchados.
(Rezar un Avemaría?)
Rosa Mística, Madre
de Jesús, Reina del
Santo Rosario y
Madre de la Iglesia,
Cuerpo Místico de
Jesucristo. Te pedimos para el mundo
destrozado por las
discordias, el don de
la unión, de la paz y
de todas las gracias
que pueden convertir
los corazones de tantos hijos tuyos. (Avemaría?)
Rosa Mística, Madre
de los apóstoles, haz
florecer alrededor de
los altares eucarísticos, numerosas vocaciones sacerdotales
y religiosas, que con
la santidad de su vida
y el celo ardiente por
las almas, puedan extender el Reino de tu
Hijo Jesús por todo el
mundo. Derrama, Oh
Madre sobre nosotros
tus dones celestiales.

a tu sombra se libra

que sorprende el malhechor, tu sombra refrigera al afligido, al
enfermo y a cuantos
te piden favor.
¡Oh! Sombra prodigiosa por cuya intercesión obró el Señor
tantos favores y tan
admirables prodigios, permíteme, Pedro Santo, que a tu
sombra los pecadores
alcancen el perdón de
sus culpas, para que
arrepentidos se alisten
en las banderas de la

Newsies ready to deliver in S.A.
By Natalie Bobadilla
[email protected]
In his 38 years as a stage actor, Steve Blanchard has done
some wild things. Packing up
his bags and embarking on a
national tour with his wife and
two-year-old daughter, however, tops them all.
When Blanchard auditioned
for the touring production of
Disney’s “Newsies”, his wife,
Meredith Inglesby, a stage actor
herself, was at home taking care
of their baby, Wren.
After Blanchard’s audition,
Disney’s executive team took
their time calling the next person. Contrary to Blanchard’s
belief, they weren’t talking
about him, but rather, they were
discussing the possibility of also
hiring Inglesby.
“They knew we had a baby
and they thought we might want
to be together, so they asked me
to come in for an audition an
hour later and now here we are,”
Inglesby told La Prensa.
Blanchard earned the role of
publishing giant Joseph Pulitzer
while Inglesby plays his corky
secretary, Hannah.
This isn’t the first time
they’ve shared a stage though.
Their love story actually began in 2005 as characters on
Disney’s Broadway musical,
“Beauty and the Beast.”
“I played the Beast, she played
Babette and that’s what happened,” Blanchard said. “The
Beast ran away with Babette.”
They married in 2009 and
once again shared cast credits
on the touring musical, “Little
House on the Prairie.”
Newsies is different from
their past projects as a couple
in the sense that now they have
a small addition.
“With a baby you’re constantly planning ahead for sitters and
cribs,” Blanchard explained.
“It’s very different than when
you travel alone.”
Touring with a two-year-old
may be more of a struggle, but
the couple agrees that watching
little Wren grow-up and being
there for her first words makes
it all worth it.
Plus, the family gets to visit
museums and different attractions during their time off.
“It’s such a blessing getting
to see the world and being together,” Inglesby said. “It’s so
much fun and super tiring, but
we’re enjoying everything.”
Soon, they’ll be able to add
San Antonio to their pile of
family vacation photos.
From Tuesday, May 12
through Sunday, May 17, the
Tony Award-winning musical
will transport audience members from the Majestic Theatre
to the streets of New York in
1899.
Through a blend of highenergy dance moves and catchy
tunes, the fast-paced musical
follows the story of newspaper
delivery boy Jack Kelly, played
by Dan DeLuca, and his fellow
newsies, most of whom are orphaned and homeless.
The problem arises when
publishing giant Pulitzer hikes
up the newspaper prices at the
expense of the newsies, who
have to pay for the newspapers
before they sell them.
As Blanchard explains, the
musical depicts the courageous
story of David and Goliath.
The delivery boys, of course,
represent David and Pulitzer
channels Goliath.
In defense of Pulitzer though,
Blanchard claims he wasn’t
nearly the villain they portray
him to be.
“I think he sees himself in
Jack Kelly, which is why he’s
so hard on him,” Blanchard
explained.
After doing some thorough
research on his character,
Blanchard has great respect
for him.
“He was a real go-getter,”
Blanchard said. “He came to
this country not speaking the
language, he taught himself the
language and established an
empire.”
While on stage the news
boys are fighting the good fight
against Blanchard’s character,
backstage they adore his little
girl and help take care of her.
“It’s like she has 20 older
brothers now,” Inglesby said.
“The cast has been incredibly
supportive.”
The national tour launched in
October 2014 and has performances booked as far as 2017.

rapid-fire of chords, balance of melodic figures and drive, served with
euphoric Latin American rhythms,
and the improvisatory freedom of a
trained jazz musician...”

Sofia Vergara receives star
on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame
EFE - Colombian actress Sofia

her star on Hollywood’s Walk
of Fame in a huge ceremony at
which she was accompanied by
her fiancé, Joe Manganiello, her
colleagues from “Modern Family” and her own family, including
her son Manolo, who gave a short
speech.
Vergara, 42, became the first
actress from her country to have
her name on a star on the iconic
boulevard in the U.S. film mecca,
although her compatriot singersongwriter Shakira was honored
similarly in 2011, the first Colombian to receive that recognition.
The actress was visibly moved
and thrilled at the ceremony, with
the crowd jamming the site and
shouting her name.
Vergara said she was very
grateful for the honor, especially
to the cast and crew of “Modern Family,” the comedy that
launched her to popularity in the
United States.
She said if Gloria Prichett - her
character on the television series had not been invented, she would
not be here.
Vergara, accompanied by many
of her family members, including her mother, emphasized the
importance of being surrounded
by a person’s loved ones because,
she said, you can have fame and
money, but it’s not worth it if
you have nobody to enjoy these
things with.

The Guadalupe Cultural Arts
Center presents Dulce, a new
exhibition by multi-disciplinary
artist Raul González. The exhibition will run from May 21 – July
22 at the Guadalupe Theater Gallery with an opening reception on
Thursday, May 21 from 7 p.m.
to 9 p.m.
Dulce combines two bodies of
paintings González has created
over the past five years. Pop art,
traditional Mexican candies, and
the hip-hop culture inspired the
first body of work.
“I use these life-sized candies as a way of glorifying the
memories and sweetness of my
childhood and embellishing the
richness of Mexican heritage and
culture,” González said. “When
I think of my Mexican heritage,
the first thing that comes to mind
is the food – in this case, the
sweets.”
The second body of paintings,
González said, is a true reflection
of who he is today. In this series,
the artist uses contemporary
abstract art as a way to identify
emotion, people, and feelings.
“In these paintings, I am reflecting on the joys and challenges of being a new father and
taking on the role of a stay-athome dad,” he said. “Even though
there are moments of grief or
frustration, every moment of raising a child is one of the sweetest
things someone can experience in
their lifetime.”
In keeping with the sweet
theme, the opening reception will
include Mexican candies from
local vendors and a performance
of ‘CAKE CAKE CAKE’, during
which González will cut cake-like
paintings for guests upon request.

Six police officers involved
in Gray’s arrest have since been
charged.
Prince will perform his new
unreleased song ‘Baltimore’ at
the concert.
Lyrics for the song, written
last week as a tribute to Gray, are

Dezeo y su Norteño Banda
revolucionan con su estilo
Por Mundo Musical
Para los amantes del sonido
norteño y sinaloense, el exitoso
conjunto regiomontano Dezeo y
su Norteño Banda, que dirige su
fundador Alejando Benavides
Del Real conocido por “Alex”,
primera voz y bajista, les diremos que en lo que resta del año
estos chavos los van a seguir
complaciendo con su material
musical preferidos, como se dice
“dos por un boleto”.
De acuerdo a Alex Benavides
Del Real, este conjunto que se
formó en el 2001 como grupo
norteño allá en la ciudad de Guadalupe, Nuevo León, vecina con
la municipalidad de la industrial
ciudad de Monterrey, se encuentran pasando por el mejor de sus
momentos, ya que en sus 14 años
de integración han realizado lo
inesperado.
En el 2001 le nació la necesidad de buscar algo diferente para
el grupo, llegando a la idea de
mezclar un toque de Banda Sinaloense, con el género norteño,
lográndose así la fusión de la
batería, bajo sexto y acordeón
con la tuba, obteniendo como
resultado la “Norteño Banda”.
Tras haber trabajado en bares
y eventos sociales, Benavides
Del Real y un grupo de jóvenes
músicos de excelente talento
pudieron salir adelante acompañados por la buena fortuna. Lo
que posteriormente les llevó a
ser vistos y escuchados por empresas musicales de renombre,
tanto en la región de El Cerro de
La Silla (Ciudad de Monterrey).
Así se les presentaron oportunidades para destacar en otro
nivel y altura en la industria del
espectáculo musical.
“Gracias a nuestro estilo único
en la interpretación de melodías
ya conocidas y otras sin mucha
fama pudimos adelantarnos en
este difícil arte de hacer música
que guste a todo tipo de auditorio. Desde un principio Dezeo y
su Norteño Banda fue aceptada
por el público, nuestros temas
y estilo se fueron haciendo
populares. Especialmente en el
tiempo del cambio con la fusión
del género norteño con el de
banda sinaloense. El éxito se
lo debemos a personas que nos
dieron la mano con oportunidades de grabar nuestro primer
disco sencillo el cual titulamos
‘Tu Primera Vez’”, apuntó Alex
Benavides Del Real.
Del álbum inicial se desprenden los temas “Tu Primera Vez”,
“Como un Tonto”. “Donde te
Duela Más”, “Duele”, “Agua
Nueva”, “Por Favor Ve’te”,
“Qué Mosca le Picó”, “Solo un
Día”, “El Italiano” y “Para el
Amor de mis Amores”.

del segundo disco sencillo. A
la vez, en lo que resta del 2015,
