No store does more for the Martinez’s
By Dennis M. Ayotte Jr.
dayotte@laprensasa.com
Leonard Martinez Sr. has easily
made over a thousand trips to what
he calls his “little H-E-B” on 1601
Nogalitos St.
The 79-year-old Martinez, who
lives just down the street, made his
first visit to the store when he was 9
years old during the original grand
opening in 1945.
As a child he made plenty of
visits to the store with his brothers
and, later, as an adult those trips
continued.
A father of eight children, Martinez recalled many trips for diapers,
milk and toilet paper, sometimes
twice a day. His five daughters and
three sons kept him busy.
As his children grew older the
trips became fewer, but it still remained his little H-E-B.
During the construction of the
new two-story, 62,000-square-foot
H-E-B that took the place of the
old store, Martinez would drive by
wondering what might become of
the new store.
“Oh, man, this is impressive,
it’s something else,” Martinez said
about the new store. “I’ve been
waiting for this day.
“‘Where’s my little H-E-B,’ I’d
say. I call this my little H-E-B because I can come in here for three
or four items. I know where to grab
them, and I’m out of here.”
The store holds many memories
for Martinez, so many that his
daughter Loretta Martinez-Valero
took a half-day leave from her job
at Fort Sam to bring her dad to the
store’s opening.
“I saw you had to RSVP on
Facebook, so I did it right away,”
Loretta said. “This is going to be
his [my dad’s] store, and I wanted
him to come. I wanted him to see

classes this weekend. (Photo, Amanda Lozano)
There is a major problem happening in San Antonio, and it’s
affecting one in every four adults.
According to statistics from
Each One Teach One, a quarter of
the population read below a fifth
grade level, which contributes to
the high number of high school
dropouts in the city: approximately 40 percent.
In 2010, nonprofit Each One
Teach One was created to help
combat those rates. The program
provides one-on-one tutoring
for adults to learn to read and
improve their skills. To this day,
it is the only program in the city
that works with students needs
individually.
“This is a service that is terribly
needed, in every council district
of this city,” Carolyn Heath,
executive director for Each One
Teach One said. “We have been
working very hard to help more
individuals. Reading at a higher
level helps transform lives.”

Patrocinada por Department
of Culture and Creative Development, está abierta al público
en Travis Park una exposición
de 30 esculturas que tienen el
mismo tema: la Victoria y la
Paz. Las esculturas se diferencian por la alegoría de sus motivos y emblemas, así como por su
diferente decoración y colorido.
La exhibición al aire libre
permanecerá hasta mediados del
mes de marzo.
Estas piezas artísticas fueron
esculpidas por artistas de la ciudad de Monterrey y fueron traídas a nuestra ciudad en virtud
de que San Antonio y Monterrey
son ciudades hermanas en un
acuerdo que propicia intercambios comerciales y culturales
como la exposición de referencia. Monterrey y San Antonio,
por la proximidad geográfica y

COMMENTARY...
Periodistas: No estamos en el negocio de quedarnos callados
Pude haber
sido yo o cual­
quier de mis
compañeros
periodistas. El
brutal ataque
contra los inJorge Ramos tegrantes de la
revista satírica
Charlie Hebdo en París, que
dejó 12 muertos, fue también
un ataque contra todos los que
ejercemos el periodismo en
cualquier parte del mundo.
Los estúpidos atacantes creen
que matándonos nos van a
callar. No se dan cuenta que
cuando asesinan a un periodista
mil más retoman sus batallas.
De hecho, la consecuencia
inmediata de la matanza de comunicadores en Francia es que
el contenido de la revista –que
tanto ofendía a los pistoleros–
se ha reproducido por millones
de veces en las redes sociales y
en el resto del planeta.
No importa si el contenido de
la revista era ofensivo, racista
o antirreligioso. Eso es absolutamente irrelevante. Si no estás
de acuerdo con algo en un medio de comunicación, entonces
replicas, debates, argumentas,
lo ignoras o demandas pero no
censuras, silencias, golpeas o
mandas matar. Eso se aplica
por igual en Francia, Siria o
México.
Matar periodistas no es nuevo. Lo nuevo es la influencia
global e incuestionable independencia de muchos periodistas en esta era digital. Es el fin
de la censura. Pero, también,
tener más poder y visibilidad significa ser un creciente
blanco de ataques de grupos y
gobiernos intolerantes.
El ataque en París fue planeado minuciosamente y tenía
por objetivo asesinar a periodistas involucrados en la
publicación de una revista que
se burla de todas las religiones
y que destruye mitos con hu-
mor. En Siria se ha recurrido a
la ejecución de corresponsales
extranjeros para vengar las ope­
raciones militares de Estados
Unidos en Irak y en el Medio
Oriente. Y en México el crimen organizado y la increíble
negligencia del gobierno han
convertido al país en uno de los
más peligrosos del mundo para
ser periodista.
En México han matado a 97
periodistas desde el 2010 a la
fecha, según la Comisión Nacional de Derechos Humanos.
Solo en el estado de Veracruz
han asesinado a 10 reporteros
en cuatro años. Desde el 2006
han atacado las instalaciones de
42 medios de comunicación en
México. Y la mayoría de estos
crímenes se han realizado con
absoluta impunidad.
Gracias a valientes y ague­
rridos periodistas como Julio
Scherer, ahora en México se
puede decir cualquier cosa.
Scherer nos abrió el camino.
El riesgo fue enorme. Criticar
presidentes era casi imposible
en México durante décadas.
Pero Scherer fue brutal con
el poder y no vendió sus principios por “chayotes”, como
muchos periodistas lo hacían
(y siguen haciendo).
Hoy el presidente Enrique
Peña Nieto no puede censurar
burdamente a la radio, prensa
escrita y televisión como lo
hacían sus predecesores priístas. Pero con la complicidad
de muchos medios ha tratado
de presentar un México que
no existe. Es la estrategia del
avestruz. El problema es que el
avestruz ya se quedó sin cabeza.
La incompetencia y negligencia gubernamental en la
desaparición de 43 estudiantes
en Iguala es noticia mundial.
Barack Obama lo mencionó el
6 de enero en la Casa Blanca. Y
no se puede culpar a periodistas
independientes por reportar
sobre el enorme conflicto de
intereses en la compra de las casas de la esposa del presidente
y de su secretario de Hacienda,
Luis Videgaray. Así es como lo
reportó The New York Times:
“Peña Nieto ha sido golpeado
por las revelaciones de que
su esposa y su ministro de
Finanzas han comprado casas
a un conocido contratista del
gobierno”.
Pocos periodistas mexicanos
siguen reportando sobre la llamada “casa blanca mexicana”
y la casa en Malinalco de su
principal asesor. Muchos han
cedido a la presión del gobier­
no de Peña Nieto. Pero, por
más que traten, no hay manera
de censurar los reportajes de
medios extranjeros.
Cuando hay dudas sobre
qué hacer como reporteros al
enfrentar al poder, basta preguntarnos: ¿Qué hubiera hecho
Julio Scherer? ¿O Elena Poniatowska? Exacto. La respuesta
es: Seguirían investigando y
reportando hasta sus últimas
consecuencias. Gracias a Elena
y su “Noche de Tlatelolco”
te­n emos un valiosísimo testimonio de primera mano de la
masacre de 1968.
La valiente entrevistadora
italiana, Oriana Falacci, decía
que ser periodista es, a la vez,
un privilegio y una responsabilidad. No conozco oficio
más bello.
Pero nos obliga, también, a
cantarle sus verdades a los que
tienen el poder y a los intoleran­
tes. Y eso a veces cuesta la vida,
como quedó demostrado esta
semana en Francia.
No estamos en el negocio de
quedarnos callados.

rer.)

Just a Thought: 28th Annual MLK March
Tomorrow is the
28th Annual Dr.
Martin Luther King
Jr. March.
I look forward to
Steve Walker
once again
making the 2.75 mile trek along
Martin Luther King Drive to the
Pittman Sullivan YMCA for
the festivities. As one who has
marched and participated consecutively for the last 17 years
without missing, I am ready to
do it again.
Up until 2007, I was strictly
a marcher and active participant
in the yearly tribute as a Balcones Heights Councilman, and
American Federation of Teachers Union President representing
Harlandale ISD. From 2009 to
2012, I marched as a judge and
was also blessed to simultaneously cover the March by taking photos of the event for my
photoblog, the Walker Report. I
am still covering the march for
the Walker Report.
In 1981, when I was the President of the Junior Chamber of
Commerce, our chapter was one
of the first non-African-American organizations in San Antonio who endorsed a National
Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday
when it wasn’t that popular to do
so. As president I received lots
of phone messages that were not
that complimentary about the
chapter openly endorsing the
move for the national holiday.
On the positive side, because
of that endorsement, I was
asked, as president, to speak
to the first group of about 500
people who gathered at MLK
Plaza to unofficially celebrate
the occasion. It was my first
public speech before a major
crowd. The following year MLK
Jr. Day became a nationally
recognized holiday.
During my coverage in photos
of the March, I have covered
grand marshalls, well-known
personalities to include civil rights activists Dr. Joseph
Lowry and Congressman John
Lewis and other notables who
marched with Dr. King in the
‘50s and ‘60s.
Three years ago, in 2012, the
guest speaker was Martin Luther
King III, eldest son of the slain
civil rights leader. I was fortunate to have covered MLK III a
few years earlier for a program
on poverty when he visited San
Antonio to be a speaker at a
conference. For me, that was a
thrilling experience. In 1982, I
met Coretta Scott King when she
visited San Antonio.
During the 2013 event, MLK
III told a reporter that he was
overwhelmed that San Antonio would turn out in force to
honor his father. He noted that
the March would have truly
impressed his dad.
In his speech to the throng of
marchers estimated at 100,000
, MLK III said in part, “You
love because you know God
calls you to do that. And when
we embrace that kind of love,
we will move America and the
entire world forward. We’ve
got to have that kind of love for
humankind.”
Last year’s crowd was also
estimated at 100,000-plus.
Assuming this year’s event
will continue to attract supporters and followers of Dr. King,
we can look forward to another
successful celebration of the
legacy of the national civil
rights leader.
When you look at the makeup of the marchers you will see
persons of all colors, ethnic and
socio-economic backgrounds
as well as all ages. Many of the
marchers also participate in the
annual Cesar Chavez March
scheduled in two months. Hispanic community leaders and
elected Latinos are well represented.
We can expect to see former
HUD Secretary and Mayor
Henry Cisneros, civil rights activist Jaime Martinez, a number
of city council members and
state reps. as well as the Castro
brothers who march every year.
If you haven’t ever participated, now might be the time to
do so. Don’t forget to be sure to
wear some comfortable shoes
for the 2.75-mile March to honor
Dr. Marin Luther King Jr.
And as always, what I write is
“Just a Thought.”

Statewide contest inspires healthy change
By Lea Thompson
lea@laprensasa.com
For individuals like Tamlynn
Niemietz, weight was just a number until it got in the way of life.
Niemietz has struggled with
weight since she was a child diagnosed with scleroderma in her
right foot. The disease hardens
and stretches the skin, making
movement painful. Her foot
was amputated by the time she
entered high school, and she has
fought against weight gain since.
In the last two years, Niemietz
gained weight due to poor eating and fitness habits, but it
wasn’t until she was diagnosed
with polycystic ovary syndrome
that she decided to make a real
change. Neimietz signed up
for the 2015 H-E-B Slimdown
Showdown Challenge as a way
to regain her health and control
of her life.
“I have been trying to be
healthy on my own for for-
ever, but I have never been that
successful,” Neimietz said. “I
thought that if I had a program
where I was held accountable
it might help because I need a
change.”
Neimietz was selected as one of
35 contestants for the fifth annual
H-E-B Slimdown Showdown
Contest, in which community
members, and H-E-B employees
compete to get in shape through
weight loss and a healthy diet.
For Veronica Jones, a San
Antonio-based H-E-B partner,
health inspiration came from the
television.
“One day I was watching ‘My
600 pound life,’ it’s a show about
people with weight issues, and
it showed me what I could be
possibly be going through in the
future,” Jones said. “It was very
ironic because I was sitting there
watching and eating chips at the
time, but it was like someone lit
a fire underneath me. That day
stopped me and changed me.”
Jones began her own health
journey last March by eating
healthier meals and beginning an
exercise regimen. She has since
lost 52 pounds, but she hopes
to learn even more information
about food and health during her
time in the contest.
“To be honest, I haven’t made
a new goal, I just want to be
healthy,” Jones said. “I don’t really know what that means for me
as far as weight goes, but being
able to feel more comfortable in
my body, thats enough for me. I
have come to not like the scale,
I try not to define myself by that
number.”
Niemietz and Jones will join
the other contestants in San Antonio for the Fit Camp program,
which will introduce participants
to food education and exercise
challenges. From Jan 17. to 23,
the contestants will meet with HE-B registered dieticians, fitness
experts and medical professionals
to set specific health and weight
loss goals.
After Fit Camp, contestants
will receive a year-long membership to their local Gold’s Gym,
and they will have access to
one-on-one access coaching sessions and meetings with health
professionals.
The contest winners will be
announced on May 9 during the
H-E-B Health & Wellness Family
Expo held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, where
a $10,000 check will be awarded
to the winner.
Throughout the 16-week contest, the participants will use
social media to document their
health journey and share their
progress with viewers and readers. Community members are
encouraged to learn more about
the program and to participate
in the healthy eating challenges
posted each week.
“If I just inspire one person
to feel better and to better themselves, then it will be worth it,”
Jones said. “Believe me, it’s hard
to try, but once you try, I promise
it will all fall into place for you.”

The program has worked with
350 students. According to Heath,
50 of them received their GED
and over 60 percent improved
their reading level.
Studies have discovered there
are direct connections between
the literacy level of the adult and
the success of children in the
household under their care, which
affects kindergarten readiness and
college attendance rates.
Each One Teach One was
hosting classes on the River City
Christian School campus for over
two years. With the rapid growth
of the program, space became
limited and finding a new residence was sorely required.
Located on 815 El Monte
Blvd., the former Fire Station 28
was the perfect candidate. Built
in the early ‘50s, the San Antonio
Fire Department left it empty in
2013.
In Aug. 2014, City Council, led
by District 1 Councilman Diego
(continued from page 1-A)
Bernal approved the sale of the
vacant fire house to Each One
Teach One, which now serves as
the nonprofit’s new home.
“We cherished our partnership
with River City,” Heath stated.
“But, our permanent space allows
us to serve more students and
offer longer hours to reach more
working individuals.”
With the new building, Each
One Teach One expects to cater
to 500 students.
Heath remains hopeful that
with the permanent residence,
others will be inspired to create
more programs like Each One
Teach One to continue to combat
the low literacy rates.
“We hope that this place will
be a prototype for future types of
facilities like this,” Heath added.
“There are no talks of it presently,
but we hope so. Now that people
see whats possible with resurfacing old property, the possibilities
are endless.”

Telemundo 60 lanza segmento para
resolver problemas de la comunidad
Por Natalie Bobadilla
natalie@laprensasa.com
Por más de 25 años el noticiero
local de Telemundo le ha dado
una voz a la comunidad hispana.
Ahora esa voz cuenta con más
fuerza.
Con el propósito de informar
a sus televidentes sobre sus
derechos como consumidores,
Telemundo San Antonio ha lanzado una unidad de investigación
que se encarga de resolver quejas,
denuncias y aclarar dudas.
Esta iniciativa, conocida como
Telemundo Responde, surgió
hace nueve meses en otras estaciones de Telemundo en los
Estados Unidos.
Desde su incepción, la unidad
en estas estaciones ha contabilizado más de 13,000 quejas que
han resultado en más de 700
historias de injusticia expuestas
al público. Aún más significativo,
Telemundo Responde ha ayudado
a sus televidentes a recuperar más
de $1 millón en menos de un año.
La unidad de investigación
ha resuelto quejas de fraude,
robo de identidad, estafas por
preparadores de impuestos, entre
otras cosas.
Debido a este éxito, Telemundo
60 San Antonio se unió a la iniciativa en diciembre del 2014.
“La necesidad es muy grande”,
indicó el presidente y gerente de
Telemundo San Antonio Luis
Hernández. “Tenemos llamadas
cada semana de consumidores
que están buscando orientación
y que nos están pidiendo que
ir a TelemundoSanAntonio.com
y hacer su queja o pedir información”, señaló Hernández.
Recientemente, la unidad ha
estado trabajando con una familia
les ayudemos en algún asunto
que les afecta a nivel personal o
familiar”.
Localmente, la unidad de investigación sale al aire los lunes
y miércoles a las 4:30 p.m. y
es encabezada por el periodista
Ciro Villareal, quien dirigía un

Foodies Rejoice! S.A. Restaurant Week has arrived
By Lea Thompson
lea@laprensasa.com
It may be cold outside, but San
Antonio’s culinary scene is heating up for Culinaria’s first winter
edition of Restaurant Week
From Jan. 19 to 24, more than
50 local restaurants will offer a
prix-fixe menu which features a
special three-course lunch and
dinner, with two price tiers.
Diners can enjoy the best of San
Antonio’s culinary scene with
$10 lunches and $25 dinners at
mid-range restaurants, or $15
lunches and $35 dinner options at
high-end establishments.
“I think San Antonio is quickly
catching up with the bigger cities
in the country,” Patrick Bean,
the general manager of Bob’s
Steak & Chop House said. “San
Antonio is becoming a place for
great food, and Restaurant Week
is great because it allows so many
people to try new places and explore what our chefs are doing.”
New and established restaurants offer diners a chance to
experience the city’s food revolution first hand all week long.
Visitors can enjoy restaurants
at their best, with options like
filet mignon and Atlantic salmon
at Bob’s Bob’s Steak & Chop
House, or small mixed plate options at FEAST.
Chef Stefan Bowers of FEAST
looks forward to showing visitors
the variety and creativity in San
Antonio’s restaurants again, after
a successful run during a Restaurant Week in August 2014.
“I like the new customers
coming in, I think we get a lot of
people from up north for Restaurant Week,” Bowers said. “They
may never come back but we had
a lot of people come here and
say ‘this was incredible,’ ‘this is
a fantastic meal,’ and they were
the first-timers. That’s what I get
stoked on. When that happens, it’s
all worth it, and it happened a lot.”
Restaurants will donate $1
and $2 to Culinaria programs for
every meal specifically ordered
from the special menus during
Restaurant Week. Culinaria, a
nonprofit organization dedicated
to making San Antonio a food and
wine destination.
The organization is currently
working to create an urban farm
for local chefs to grow their own
produce, while teaching the community where their food comes
from.
“The idea for the farm came
out of the spirit of having a place
Martinez...
could not live anywhere else.”
The store will provide for a
whole new set of memories for
the Martinez’s. It has an all-new
deli, bakery, floral department and
pharmacy that offers drive-thru
services and delivery for those who
order two or more prescriptions,
according to H-E-B spokesperson
Kim Harle.
Additionally, the store has an
expanded beer and wine selection;
a produce section with organic
selections and fresh juice station;
and expanded meat and seafood
sections.

(continued from page 1-A)
“I’ve never seen a store like this,
even on the Northside. We got ‘em
beat,” Martinez joked.
Part of the reason Martinez has
never seen a store like this is because they don’t exist in Texas. The
two-story design has been used in
Mexico, but it’s the first ever built
in Texas.
H-E-B used a model similar
to stores built in Mexico because
they were landlocked, according
to Harle. The multi-level approach
allows for shoppers to park on the
first level and do their shopping
on the second level. “Travelators,”
similar to escalators, and elevators
will take shoppers and their carts
from the first-floor to the secondfloor.
One thing that hasn’t changed
about the Martinez’s H-E-B is the
iconic façade built in 1945.
“I was hoping they would keep
it,” Martinez said. “I would pass
by here when they were knocking
down the old store down, and I noticed it was still intact. I said ‘good
idea.’ They kept the old interesting
look that I remember as a child.”
The new Nogalitos store officially opened Friday.

7 propósitos para las personas que cuidan a otras con mucha eficacia
Por Dr. Jamie Huysman
1. ¡Tome su oxígeno primero!
Únase a un grupo de apoyo
para personas que cuidan a otras
y haga tiempo para participar en
otras actividades que compensen
sus deberes de cuidar a otra persona con las necesidades de su
propio cuerpo, mente y espíritu.
Es importante que usted tenga
un lugar donde desahogarse y
atender sus sentimientos. Sobre
todo, no olvide que usted es
humano.
2. Haga preguntas y consiga
las respuestas
Aprenda todo lo que pueda
acerca de la enfermedad principal y las condiciones por debajo
de esta que tenga la persona que
usted cuida. A la larga, el equipo
médico de su ser querido agradecerá el hecho de que usted está
informado y tal vez esté más dispuesto a compartir información
con usted.
3. Sea la persona a quien
dirigirse
Si usted es la persona principal que cuida a otra, avísele al
equipo médico de este individuo
que usted es la persona con quien
comunicarse cuando se trate
de su ser querido. El tener un
solo familiar principal a quien
dirigirse permite que usted sea
un intermediario eficaz entre
su familia y el equipo médico
de su ser querido. Si es posible,
organice reuniones o llamadas de
conferencia regulares con un trabajador social o administrador de
cuidados geriátricos para que los
otros familiares puedan expresar
sus preocupaciones.
4. Consiga la capacitación
que usted necesite
Si se espera que usted dé tratamientos médicos necesarios de
los cuales no tiene conocimiento
o que le harían sentirse inseguro al
darlos, tiene derecho a capacitarse

Wednesday, the Arthritis
Foundation South Central Region announced the recent addition of Chris Nieto, Regional
Community Leadership Board
Member, to its national board of
directors.
The announcement was made
by Margaret Jackson, Chairman
of the Board of the Arthritis
Foundation South Central Region. The Arthritis Foundation
South Central Region serves
those living with arthritis, including four million Texans, 820,000
Oklahomans and 372,000 people
in New Mexico.
Nieto became involved with
the Arthritis Foundation following his daughter’s diagnosis with
Juvenile Arthritis at the age of 9
months old. His family credits
the Foundation with helping
them with vital arthritis resources
and connecting them to other
families of children with arthritis.
Since joining the South Central
Region Board of Directors in
2012, Chris has been an outspoken champion of people living
with arthritis and has advocated
on their behalf across the region
and on Capitol Hill.
As president of Qobe Group,
Nieto has provided professional
and leadership training experiences throughout the United
States for nearly 20 years. His
passion is creating interactive
and engaging environments for
people to discover their natural
talents, identify growth opportunities, and amplify their skills
to have a greater impact in their
personal and professional lives.

Make a “PACT” to prevent birth defects Alzheimer’s Association provides
By Cheryl Weise
January 2015 is National Birth
Defects Prevention Month. The
theme for 2015 is: “Making
Healthy Choices to Prevent Birth
Defects—Make a PACT for Prevention.”
• Plan Ahead—get
as healthy as possible before becoming pregnant
• Avoid harmful
substances—avoid
drinking alcohol and
smoking, harmful
work exposures
• Choose a healthy
lifestyle—diet, activity and control medical conditions
• Talk to your doctor—get
early prenatal care, take prenatal
vitamins and discuss medications
Are you thinking about getting pregnant? Are you already
pregnant? Is this your first baby?
There is a program in Bexar
County that pairs a first time, low
income mother in her pregnancy
with a highly trained BSN prepared registered nurse. It is free
to those who are eligible. It’s
called Nurse-Family Partnership.
One of the important goals of
this program is healthy outcomes
for pregnant women and their
babies. If you’re in this program,
your nurse will work with you to
decrease the risks and chances of
having a baby with a birth defect.
A birth defect is a physical or
biochemical abnormality that is
present at birth and that may be
inherited or the result of environmental influence.
Every 4 ½ minutes a baby is
born with a birth defect. One in
every 33 babies is born with a
birth defect. About 120,000 babies are affected by birth defects
each year in the United States.
They are the most common cause
of death in infants and the second
most common cause of death in
children aged one to four years.
The health of a woman prior to
pregnancy can affect the risk of
a child with a birth defect. Most
people are unaware of how common, costly and critical birth defects are in the US or that many
are preventable. Small steps, like
making healthy choices, visiting
a healthcare provider, controlling your weight through healthy
diet, activity and taking a multivitamin every day can all play a
role in preventing or decreasing
the risk of birth defects.
Nurse-Family Partnership
(NFP) is an evidence-based,
community health program that
serves low-income women pregnant with their first child. It is a
life-transforming partnership,
for the mom and her child.
Nurse-Family Partnership helps
families — and the communities
they live in — become stronger
while saving money
for state, local and
federal governments.
The Children’s
Shelter is an implementing agency for
one of 20 active
Nurse-Family Partnership programs in
Texas. At NFP with
The Children’s Shelter, we pair a highly trained BSN
prepared registered nurse with a
first-time mother to work with
her from pregnancy until her
child turns two years old.

defects, and/or The Nurse-Family Partnership program at The
Children’s Shelter, please call

legal and financial help
The diagnosis of Alzheimer’s
disease makes planning for the
future more important than ever.
Concerns about care provision
and programs that can help offset
costs mean that families need accurate information about legal and
financial planning specific to the
disease. To assist our community,
the Alzheimer’s Association, San
Antonio and South Texas Chapter,
offers free Legal and Financial
Planning Classes.
The Alzheimer’s Association’s
Legal and Financial Planning
Classes are conducted by trained
experts in their field (lawyers and
CPAs) who have joined with the
effects of the Alzheimer’s Association to assist those dealing with this
extremely complex and expensive
disease. The classes cover information for families and individuals
dealing with Alzheimer’s disease
or a related dementia. This is an interactive two-part program where
you will have a chance to learn
about important legal and financial
issues to consider, how to put plans
in place, and how to access legal
and financial resources near you.
“The attendees who come to
these classes clearly want to be
there. They are in the middle
of complex issues dealing with
dementia for their loved ones”,
said Spencer Brown, Legal and
Financial Education Instructor.
“This program is a tremendous as-
set and need as dementia becomes
more prevalent.”
Topics covered in the classes
include: making legal plans that
fit your needs; legal documents
you’ll need and what they mean
for all of you; how to find legal
and financial assistance; practical
strategies for making a long-term
plan of care; tax deductions and
credits; and government programs
that can help pay for care. The goal
of the program is to help attendants
to better understand and manage
the legal and financial issues that
may impact them as a result of
Alzheimer’s disease.
“The diagnosis of Alzheimer’s
disease or another type of dementia makes planning for the future
more important than ever,” said
Margaret Barron, the Executive
Director for the Alzheimer’s Association, San Antonio and South
Texas Chapter. “Funds from the
Texas Bar Foundation will assist the Chapter in establishing
much-needed classes on Legal
and Financial support available to
individuals and families affected
by Alzheimer’s disease.”
Funding for the Legal and Financial Education Classes in Bexar
County was funded by the Texas
Bar Foundation. Since its inception
in 1965, the Texas Bar Foundation
has awarded more than $15 million
in grants to law-related programs.
Supported by members of the

to the Arthritis Foundation,”
Jackson said. He has demonstrated unwavering support for
the Arthritis Foundation’s mission, he will provide dynamic
leadership for our organization.
Chris will also bring a fresh regional perspective to the national
board, as well be a voice for children and families with Juvenile
Arthritis.
The work of the Arthritis
Foundation South Central Region supports the organization’s
fight against arthritis, the nation’s most common cause of
disability. Currently, 53 million
Americans (one in five) are living
with arthritis pain every minute of every day. The Arthritis
Foundation leads initiatives to
support research to find a cure,
provide public health/educational programs for those who
have arthritis, and continue its
advocacy efforts throughout the
South Central Region and across
the U.S.
State Bar of Texas, the Texas Bar
Foundation is the nation’s largest
charitably-funded bar foundation.
Alzheimer’s disease is a growing epidemic and is now the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death.
As baby boomers age, the number
of individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease will rapidly escalate,
increasing well beyond today’s
more than 5.2 million Americans
living with Alzheimer’s. In Texas
alone, there are 330,000 people
living with Alzheimer’s.
Experts are available to take
calls from individuals concerned
with their own cognitive health, as
well as from family members and
friends concerned about a family
member and seeking resources.
The Alzheimer’s Association
is the world’s leading voluntary
health organization in Alzheimer’s
care, support and research. Our
mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, to provide and
enhance care and support for all
affected, and to reduce the risk of
dementia through the promotion of
brain health. Our vision is a world
without Alzheimer’s.

Just four more weekends until we see not only the most
anticipated commercials of the
year, but also the most anticipated
game of the NFL season, which
is none other than the NFL Super
Bowl.
For football players and coaches, this grand stage is what many
work their entire lives to compete
and be victorious. Many want to
hold up the infamous Lombardi
Trophy, but only one team can
stand above the rest and call
themselves Super Bowl Champions.
Four teams are left in the NFL
playoffs looking to play in Phoenix, Ariz. where Super Bowl
XLIX will be held this year.
Those four teams are the Seattle
Seahawks, Green Bay Packers,
New England Patriots, and the
Indianapolis Colts.
For the NFC title the Packers
will face the Seahawks in Seattle,
home of the “12th Man,” on
Sunday with a 3:05 p.m. kickoff
on FOX. The Packers lost to the
Seahawks in Week 1 of the NFL
season 36-16.
Packers quarterback Aaron
Rodgers is still recovering and
pushing through his calf injury.
Despite the drawbacks and limitations due to his injury, Rodgers
continues to step up and provide
leadership to his team.
Rodgers told the media following the Packers against the
Dallas Cowboys this past Sunday,
“I think I’ve got 120 minutes of
football left in me,” also stating
that he was going to do everything
he could so that he can play every
minute. Rodgers is going to have
to give it his all against Seattle’s
powerhouse defense.
To leave with no excuses and
surprise Seattle, the Packers
cannot show fear of safety Kam
Chancellor, and the highly outspoken cornerback Richard Sherman. Rookie wide receiver for the
Packers Davante Adams showed
young strength to shed tackles
in the previous game against the
Cowboys. The Packers might
look to match him up with Sherman, just another cornerback with
a loud mouth (sorry Seahawks
fans).
Coming off a win against the
Carolina Panthers, the Seahawks
will look to use their momentum
to beat the Packers. With Rodgers
very limited, look for Seattle’s
defensive line to get a shot at
him and running back Marshawn
Lynch to run over the Packers
defense.
In the AFC, the Patriots are
coming off a thrilling victory
against the Ravens. Although
many would say that more so the
Ravens lost than the Patriots lost,
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady
played at his highest level.

Defensiva saca de apuros a los Spurs
Por José I. Franco
franco@laprensasa.com
De acuerdo al entrenador
en jefe Gregg Popovich, los
Spurs se han sobrepuesto en los
marcadores adversos gracias
a su efectiva estrategia en la
defensiva.
Prueba de ello fue el cerrado
partido que el pentacampeón de
la NBA sostuvo ante el visitante
Suns de Phoenix, que los contuvo
por buen tiempo con una ventaja
de 12 puntos.
Spurs, por consiguiente, en el
cuarto periodo logró contener los
ataques del alero P.J. Tucker, el
escolta Goran Dragic, el guardia
Eric Bledsoe, y los escoltas
suplentes Isaiah Thomas y Gerard
Green, que fueron anulados en
sus ofensivos ataques.
Con 41 unidades los Spurs
pudieron doblegar a Suns en el
cuarto periodo en el que solo
pudieron fabricar 26 puntos.
San Antonio se alzó con la
victoria por pizarra de 100 a 95
en partido que tuvo duración de
2 horas con 20 minutos.
El triunfo ante Suns fue la
victoria número de 22 de los
Spurs que –con 16 descalabros–
sumaron 38 partidos,
aproximándose a la primera
mitad del rol regular que es de
41 partidos.
La temporada regular de la
NBA 2014-15 consiste de 82
partidos, con 41 en calidad de
local y 41 de gira.
“Spurs pudo superar a los Suns
en el último cuarto porque jugó
excelente defensiva. Phoenix
hizo bastantes tiros al aro sin
concretarlos. Por nuestra parte
todo salió a la perfección:
se logró encontrar la canasta
fallándose una mínima cantidad
de tiros al aro. La energía de
nuestros jugadores superó el
resultado del partido, se jugó
consistente agresividad y un
buen baloncesto. El cierre fue
perfecto en la defensiva, se
defendió el área chica y hubo
buen número de rebotes a nuestro
favor. Le doy bastante crédito a
todo el equipo que impuso su
estilo de juego defensivo sobre
la duela”, expresó el timonel
Popovich.
El capitán y delantero titular
Tim Duncan sin quedarse atrás
reconoció el trabajo defensivo
de sus compañeros, destacando el
trabajo de Popovich y su equipo de
entrenadores, que en cada partido
los han venido acomodando
con diferentes rotaciones en las
que sorpresivamente combinan
jugadores titulares con suplentes.
La banca (suplentes)
encabezada por el sexto hombre,
el guardia argentino Manu
Ginóbili, desde la temporada
2013-14 se ha destacado como
la mejor en el circuito de la
NBA por su promedio de puntos
anotados por cotejo, el cual no ha
bajado en la presente campaña en
la que siguen aportando entre 40
y 50 puntos por partido. Prueba
de ello fue el partido contra Suns
en el que los suplentes aportaron
40 unidades por 33 de Phoenix.

For the first time in the Alamodome’s 22-year history, it will host
an international friendly between
the U.S. Men’s National Team and
Mexico, U.S. Soccer announced
Wednesday.
The exhibition is set for April 15,
the day before Fiesta officially kicks
off, and is expected to draw a sellout
crowd of 65,000.
The match is scheduled to begin
at 7:30 p.m. and will be broadcast
live on FOX Sports 1, UniMas and
Univision Deportes Network.
Tickets go on sale Friday, Jan.
30, at 10 a.m. CT, according to a
statement.
In January of 2014, the Alamodome hosted a Mexico-Korea international friendly, which brought
a crowd of over 54,000.
The U.S. Men’s National Team
was scheduled to play Columbia inside the Alamodome last September
until a verbal agreement fell through.
The match is not a FIFA fixture
date, meaning most Europe-based
players won’t be available to play.
The U.S. begins its 2015 campaign on Wednesday, Jan. 28, with
a match against Chile at Estadio El
Teniente in Rancagua, Chile.
Qualifying for the 2018 World
Cup starts with a pair of matches

UTSA announces addition of two more junior college transfers
Courtesy of UTSA Athletics
Head football coach Larry
Coker announced the addition
of two more junior college transfers to his program on Thursday.
Defensive end Ben Kane (West
Covina, Calif./South Hills HS/
Citrus [Calif.] JC) and defensive tackle Vontrell Williams
(Chicago, Ill./Mount Carmel
HS/Illinois/Butler [Kan.] CC)
both signed National Letters of
Intent and are scheduled to begin
attending classes next week.
"We are excited to add Ben
and Vontrell to our junior college recruiting class," Coker
said. "Both players had outstanding seasons a year ago
and we are looking forward to
them to joining our program for
spring drills."
Kane is coming off a sophomore season that saw him
record 57 tackles, including
four for loss and two sacks, in
10 games for head coach Ron
Ponciano. As a freshman in
2013, he racked up 31 stops,
three TFLs and 2.5 sacks in
nine contests. The 6-foot-4,
240-pounder was a three-year
prep starter who earned firstteam All-Sierra League and
second-team All-San Gabriel
Valley honors as a senior.
Williams saw action in nine
games this past season and he
registered 39 tackles, 2.5 TFLs
and 1.5 sacks. He also blocked
a kick for the Grizzlies, who
were coached by Troy Morrell. The 6-foot-2, 325-pounder
originally began his career at
Illinois, but he did not play in
2013 after sitting out the previous campaign as a redshirt.
Williams was named to the
2012SuperPrep Midwest team
and also tabbed second-team
all-state (Chicago Tribune) after accumulating 39 stops and
15 sacks as a senior. He helped
lead his high school team to
the 2011 Chicago Prep Bowl
Championship and also played
in the 2010 Illinois Class 8A
Championship Game.

Roberto Alves “Zague”, Jared
Borgetti, Paco de Anda, Rafa
Puente, Heriberto Murrieta, Ciro
Procuna, Héctor Huerta, Ángel
García Toraño y Felipe Ramos
Rizo.
Hugo Sánchez es considerado
por mucho tiempo como el
mejor jugador mexicano de
fútbol. Fue parte del equipo

de su carrera y participó en tres
Copas Mundiales. Fue el máximo
anotador en la Liga de España
por cinco temporadas; ganó
una Bota de Oro europea y fue
nombrado uno de los mejores
once jugadores de todos los
tiempos en el Real Madrid.
Sánchez comenzó su carrera
de fútbol a una edad muy
temprana. Jugó para el equipo
nacional mexicano en los Juegos
Panamericanos en 1976 y luego
en las Olimpiadas del 1976.
Luego de haber jugado en 80
partidos internacionales, a sus
18 años de edad Sánchez firmó
como un jugador juvenil para los
Pumas de la UNAM. Dos años y
26 goles más tarde, se convirtió
en el máximo anotador de la
Primera División de México.
Luego de cinco temporadas
exitosas en México y 99 goles
a su nombre, Sánchez firmó
con el Atlético de Madrid en el
1981. En el 1985 fichó con el
Real Madrid donde ganó cinco
campeonatos consecutivos de
la Liga (desde 1985-86 hasta el
1989-90), la Copa del Rey en el
1989 y la Copa de la UEFA en
el 1986.
En 1992, Sánchez regresó a su
natal México por una temporada,
ganando la Champions Cup
de la CONCACAF con el club
América. Luego jugó con una
variedad de clubes en España,
Austria y los Estados Unidos
antes de retirarse en el 1997.
Unos años después de su retiro,
Sánchez comenzó su carrera
como técnico con los Pumas
de UNAM donde ganó d o s
campeonatos, antes de una
movida breve al Club Necaxa.
Luego sirvió como director
técnico del equipo nacional
mexicano desde el 2006 hasta
el 2008.

The Patriots defense held their
ground but thanks to Ravens
quarterback Joe Flacco’s terrible
decisions late in the game, the
Patriots defense made huge momentum changing plays. Look for
the Patriots to do the same to their
next opponent, the Colts.
The Colts played against future
hall of fame quarterback Peyton
Manning and the Denver Broncos.
Manning played like a high school
junior varsity player against the
Colts defense.
Perhaps, he put too much pressure on himself, perhaps not. Whatever the case may be, the Broncos
simply did not step up and show the
same dominance they previously
had last season.
Colts quarterback Andrew Luck
looks to go to his first appearance
in a Super Bowl as well as an AFC

he is no stranger to AFC Championships and the Super bowl.

Independiente y Pique Piratas vs. Águilas
empatados en puntos a morir por título
Por José I. Franco
Este domingo 18 de enero el club
Independiente se enfrentará en el
clásico entre punteros en el Amistad
Park al duro rival El Valle de San
Luis, que es el actual subcampeón en
la máxima división de la pionera Liga
Latina, que preside el señor Manuel
de la Rosa, con su segundo de abordo
el nazareno Alfredo Guajardo, quien
firma en la directiva como jefe de
árbitros.
El combate entre el Independiente
y El Valle está programado para
escenificarse en el horario de las
11 a.m.
Independiente con 16 puntos
comparte el liderato de la tabla
general con el plantel Pique F.C. que
cuenta con el líder de goleo Eduardo
“Guayo” Jinéz, quien tiene la friolera
cantidad de 16 tantos.
En el rol de juegos a celebrarse
en el Amistad Park a las 9 a.m. van
Los Chapines contra el Liberty. A la
1 p.m. Xolos tratará de parar al Pique
que, bajo la batuta de su cofundador y
director técnico Alberto “Malancas”
Ramírez, está pasando por buena
racha, prueba de ello son las 16
unidades que lo tienen empatado con
el Independiente.
A las 3 p.m. contenderán los
equipos La Raza de Laredo y el
Manchester, encuentro que promete
bastante acción porque ambos
equipos estarán buscando la victoria
para lograr retomar el vuelo en la
sexagésima sexta temporada invernal
que se está jugando con el formato de
la Copa MX.
En la cancha del Normoyle Park
(Culberson Street y Zarzamora St.) a
las 3 p.m. el clásico del suroeste se
lo estarán disputando las oncenas del
Veracruz y el excampeón Halcones
de don Carmelo Niño, que una
vez más estará depositándole su
confianza al artillero Juan “Cadillac”
Sánchez, quien se ha comprometido
a continuar colaborando en la
restructuración del plantel.
“Van a ver a un Halcones
diferente, será el equipo a vencer
ya que estaremos armándolo como
es nuestro sistema y meta, la de
ganar partidos y llegar a la liguilla
en cómoda posición”, comentó el
popular Cadillac Sánchez, quien es
catalogado como uno de los mejores
delanteros y preparadores en el
balompié regional independiente de
San Antonio.
En el partido mañanero (9 a.m.)
se miden el Real San Luis contra
Real Felinos.
A las 11 a.m. van Los Júniors
contra el campeón San Pablo, que
comanda su técnico y propietario
Pablo Rivera y su goleador y
delantero Diego Rivera.
A la 1 p.m. el club Real Azteca,
entrenado por su propietario
Armando Lares, irá por los dos
puntos ante los melenudos Leones
Rojos que andan de capa caída sin
poder retomar su paso triunfador,
ojalá el nuevo año los ubique por el
sendero del triunfo. “Independiente
no tendrá nada fácil su partido contra
El Valle, ambos van punteando
en la tabla general, por igual el
Pique que tiene de rival a los
Xolos, que bien pueden darle la
sorpresa. Independiente y Pique
se encuentran empatados con 16
puntos, por lo que de ganar, ambos
seguirán en el mismo escaño, por
lo que recomendamos a la afición
no perderse los partidos”, dijo
Guajardo.
Por Sendero Deportivo
“Este domingo esperamos ver
coronarse al primer campeón de la
Liga Dominical Potranco. Piratas,
que lleva el primer ganado en serie
de tres partidos, se batirá a morir
contra Águilas de La Sauceda, que
bien puede remontar el vuelo y
forzar la serie al tercer encuentro”,
afirmó Juan Sánchez, coordinador
en jefe de la Liga Dominical
Potranco, que está por ver caer el
telón de la temporada dedicada
en memoria del beisbolista Ever
Gloria (QEPD).
La serie se ha alargado por
cuestiones de humedad sobre el
terreno de juego, por lo que este
domingo 18 de enero Sánchez
y directivos de ambos equipos
esperan ver un cambio en el clima,
que al parecer estará placentero
para que se juegue el rey de los
deportes.
Piratas, que dirigen Sergio de
Luna y Francisco Cano, con su
lanzador estelar derecho Moisés
Montalvo celebraron la primera
victoria con pizarra de 9-0 carreras,
encuentro en el que Águilas de La
Sauceda bajo el timón de Benito
Martínez y Samuel Villarreal se
vieron en la necesidad de enviar a
la lomita de las responsabilidades
al lanzador abridor José Gómez y
los relevistas Arnoldo Farías e Iván
Maldonado, quien cerró el partido
que concluyó en blanqueada.
La esperanza para Águilas es
su lanzador estelar Iván de Anda,
quien se espera que esté dispuesto
para darle un buen empujón a
los de La Sauceda, ya que es
imperante verlo sobre la lomita de
los disparos.
Por su lado, Piratas tiene en
su departamento de pitcheo a los
descansados serpentineros Miguel
García, Ángel Medina, y al mismo
Moisés Montalvo, quienes están
ansiosos de retornar a la acción y
de una vez por todas ir con todo
para conseguir ganar el banderín
de campeón.
“Águilas confía en tener de nuevo
a nuestro lanzador estelar Iván de
Anda, sin descartar a nuestros
otros lanzadores, quienes estarán
listos para aportar su respaldo en el
segundo partido. Nuestra esperanza
es retomar el vuelo en lo que sigue,
ya que todo puede suceder, que
no se confíen los rivales porque
tenemos con que salir adelante”,
comentó el magnate Héctor Ibarra.
El segundo partido está
programado a jugarse en punto de
las 10 a.m.
Si la serie se empata el tercer
partido se jugará en el horario de
la 1 p.m. de acuerdo al coordinador
Sánchez, quien dijo a La Prensa
que al concluir la serie se premiará
con flamantes trofeos al campeón,
subcampeón, y al tercer lugar
Titanes. Así como también se
realizará la presentación de placas
de reconocimiento para el mejor
lanzador de la serie y al jugador
MVP, ambos recibirán placas
conmemorativas.

Obama busca eliminar barreras al Big Give S.A unveils 2015 plans
acceso a Internet de banda ancha
By Scott McAninch
EFE - El presidente Barack
Obama presentó esta semana un
plan para acabar con las leyes
que impiden a ciudades y pueblos
de 19 estados del país el acceso
a Internet de alta velocidad, al
asegurar que la banda ancha “no
es un lujo, sino una necesidad”
para la creación de empleo y la
innovación.
Obama desveló su propuesta
en una visita a la ciudad de Cedar
Falls (Iowa), en la que todos los
residentes tienen acceso a Internet
de alta velocidad gracias a la
inversión colectiva en una red de
fibra óptica.
Aunque el 98 por ciento de
los estadounidenses tienen
acceso a Internet con una banda
ancha básica, “45 millones de
estadounidenses no pueden
comprar una banda ancha de
última generación, que genera
conexiones seis o siete veces más
rápidas”, y solo “la mitad” de
quienes viven en zonas rurales
consiguen conectarse a esa
velocidad, dijo Obama.
“Hoy, una banda ancha de alta
velocidad no es un lujo, es una
necesidad” en una economía
donde buena parte de la creación
de empleo “depende de nuestra
capacidad de conectarnos, de
comprar, de hacer negocios
y aprender en línea, en el
ciberespacio”, añadió.
Diecinueve estados tienen
leyes que limitan la capacidad
de las comunidades de unirse
para invertir en una red de banda
ancha de alta velocidad, como
hizo Cedar Falls, aseguró la
Casa Blanca.
Obama anunció que enviará
una carta a la Comisión Federal
de Comunicaciones (FCC)
en la que pide invalidar esas
leyes estatales, para que “las
comunidades tengan el derecho
a tomar la decisión por sí mismas
y proporcionar una red de banda
ancha si es lo que quieren”.
El presidente de la FCC,
el demócrata Tom Wheeler,
indicó el año pasado en una
audiencia ante el Congreso
que considera que las leyes
estatales no deberían prohibir
los proyectos de banda ancha a
nivel municipal.
No obstante, la FCC es una
agencia independiente del
Gobierno, y dos de sus cinco
comisionados, Ajit Pai y Michael
O’Rielly, se mostraron en contra
de la propuesta de Obama, al
considerar que la Comisión no
debe pronunciarse sobre leyes
estatales.
La Casa Blanca argumenta que
muchas de esas leyes estatales
“fueron impulsadas por intereses
especiales que tratan de ahogar
nuevos competidores”, lo que
ha “retenido el acceso a la banda
ancha, y con él, las oportunidades
económicas”.
Obama reiteró también su
preferencia por regular Internet
como un servicio público y prohibir
la creación de canales prioritarios y
más rápidos, que permitan acceder
más velozmente a contenidos
cuyos creadores hayan pagado
previamente una tasa a la compañía
proveedora.
El mandatario lamentó que, en el
caso de los estadounidenses que sí
tienen acceso a un Internet rápido,
“es muy probable que solo tengan
acceso a un proveedor”, dado
que las empresas como Comcast
o Verizon llegan a acuerdos para
obtener el monopolio sobre un área.
“Una mayor competición
significa mejores productos y
precios más baratos. Es lo que
hacemos con casi todos los demás
productos y deberíamos hacerlo
con la banda ancha”, defendió
Obama.
El presidente anunció además
que el Departamento de Comercio
lanzará una nueva iniciativa,
BroadbandUSA, para proporcionar
asistencia técnica a las comunidades
que quieran invertir en sus propias
redes de banda ancha.
Por su parte, el Departamento de
Agricultura concederá subsidios a
proveedores de zonas rurales que
inviertan en proporcionar Internet
de alta velocidad a zonas con pocas
opciones de conexión.
Asimismo, Obama ha pedido a las
agencias federales que le entreguen

To say The Big Give S.A. has
big plans for this year’s event is
a big understatement.
To begin with, this year’s event
is expanding to New Braunfels,
Kerrville, Boerne, Seguin, and
Fredericksburg all in a 12-county
area.
The 2015 Big Give S.A. is
part of the
Give Local
America
24-hour
crowdfunding event
that allows
every person in the
community
to give back to the community
with donations as little as $10.
The first Big Give S.A., held
in 2014, more than doubled its
million-dollar goal. In fact, 467
nonprofits raised $2.09 million
from 21,361 donations.
“The Big Give S.A. is a highly
effective and efficient way for
organizations to raise funds, while
generating awareness for their
programs and the clients or causes
they serve,” said Jared Skok,
executive director, Tesoro Foundation. “Tesoro was extremely

St. Mary’s University launches Texas’ only
Master of Jurisprudence law program
By Jennifer Lloyd

Aumentan los registros
aleatorios en aeropuertos
EFE- Estados Unidos
aumentó a raíz de los atentados
de París los registros aleatorios
a pasajeros que vuelan al país,
así como las inspecciones de
las maletas que introducen en
la cabina del avión.
La decisión se produjo con
el objetivo de aumentar la
seguridad tras los atentados en
Francia, según el Departamento
de Seguridad Nacional (DHS).
La Dirección de Seguridad
en el Transporte (TSA,
por sus siglas en inglés)
implementará las nuevas
medidas en los aeropuertos
tanto en vuelos nacionales
como internacionales, donde los
controles ya fueron reforzados
en julio.
En ese momento, Estados
Unidos estableció que los
viajeros que quisieran volar
hacia su país debían de cargar
las baterías de sus celulares,
ordenadores portátiles, tabletas o
cualquier otro artefacto electrónico.
Esta medida sigue vigente,
de forma que los artefactos
electrónicos que no se enciendan
en el momento del control corren
el peligro de ser confiscados.
Esta medida se anunció
después de que las autoridades
estadounidenses expresaran su
preocupación por la labor de
grupos terroristas en Yemen y
Siria, vinculados a Al Qaeda,
para el desarrollo de un artefacto
explosivo que pueda pasar sin
detección por los controles de
los aeropuertos.
Por los aeropuertos
estadounidenses pasan alrededor
de 1,8 millones de pasajeros
cada día, según cálculos de la
TSA.

As lawmakers begin to debate future laws in the State
Capitol this month, the St.
Mary’s University School of
Law announces a new Master
of Jurisprudence degree program — the only degree of its
kind offered at a law school
in Texas.
The graduate degree will
equip non-lawyers with the
tools to understand current and
future laws and enable them
to gain the professional edge
needed to further careers in
fields that frequently intersect
with the law, such as healthcare, business and education.
“This significant expansion
of our degree options fills a
void in the educational and
workforce landscape,” said
Dean Stephen M. Sheppard,
J.S.D.
The addition of a new type of
degree program is the first for the
St. Mary’s School of Law since
1996, when it added the Master
of Laws (LL.M.) program, which
typically draws students who have
already earned a Juris Doctor or
the foreign equivalent.
Though the St. Mary’s University School of Law’s Master
of Jurisprudence degree program
is unique among the state’s law
schools, the new offering follows
a trend of developing similar
degrees at law schools across the
nation.
Market research shows that
graduates of similar programs
have said the credential enabled
them to advance their careers and
earn larger salaries.
The program encourages students to explore the connections
between the law and their respective disciplines and to study the
American legal system more
comprehensively than through
on-the-job training.
“As businesses seek to lower
their costs, these graduates will
be ideally situated to take on basic
tasks that intersect with the law,
such as compliance work,” said
Professor Colin Marks, director
of the Master of Jurisprudence
program.

Praying to ease the struggles of immigrants, Abramos bien los ojos
migrants, and vulnerable populations
Por Carlos Rey
Today’s Catholic
he is so that he may do him
homage — intending, instead,
to murder the boy! Herod and
his court, despite the splendor
surrounding them, continue to
live in the darkness of deceit,
ignorance and evil.”
In Bethlehem the wise men
encounter the newborn child
Jesus and Mary his mother. The
three offer the child gifts and do
him homage.
“Mary says nothing. Jesus
says nothing. But the light of
God’s presence and majesty
shine brightly in this entire story,” says Archbishop Gustavo.
“Recall that the Holy Family is
from Galilee, not Judea. They
are far from home and live in
a stable or cave because they
were not welcome at the inn.
And we know what happens
next.”
Herod then decides to kill all
the young boys in Bethlehem,
and the Holy Family take refuge
in a foreign land, Egypt.
The archbishop adds, “The
shadow of the cross falls upon
the child Jesus from his earliest
days even though Herod cannot extinguish the light of the
world, Cristo Rey!”
He continued, “This feast of
the Epiphany is a celebration
of light! Jesus is the light of
the world — a light offered to
Jew and Gentile alike, to all
people without exception. No
one needs ever again to walk in
darkness, apart from the God of
light and love. This feast chal-
lenges us to seek and encounter
the Lord Jesus and to walk in
God’s light all the days of our
lives.”
To shine the light of the Gospel on the plight of migrants
and refugees, Pope Francis
issued a message for the 101st
World Day of Migrants and
Refugees (which was celebrated on Jan. 18) with the theme,
“Church without frontiers,
mother to all.”
The Holy Father points out
that “the church without frontiers, mother to all, spreads
throughout the world a culture
of acceptance and solidarity, in
which no one is seen as useless,
out of place, or disposable.”
He reminds all that “large
numbers of people are leaving
their homelands, with a suitcase
full of fears and desires, to
undertake a hopeful and dangerous trip in search of more
humane living conditions.”
A r c h b i s h o p G u s t a v o d escribed how many of the immigrants who come to the United
States along the Southwest border
carry no suitcase and are fleeing
violence that threatens their very
lives.
The Holy Father added in his
message that “migration gives rise
to suspicion and hostility, even in
ecclesial communities, prior to
any knowledge of their migrants’
lives or their stories or persecution and destitution. Migrants and
refugees are real people, with real
names, real faces, real families!”
“Suspicion and prejudice,”
Pope Francis says, “conflict with
the biblical commandment of
welcoming with respect and solidarity the stranger in need. Jesus
commanded his followers to love
one another. The Lord identified
himself with the stranger, with
the one who suffers, with all the
innocent victims of violence and
exploitation.”
Pope Francis says that “the
courage born of faith, hope and
love enables us to reduce the
distances that separate us from
human misery. Jesus Christ is
always waiting to be recognized
in migrants and refugees, in displaced persons and in exiles and
through them he calls us to share
our resources.”
The Holy Father closed his
message by addressing the migrants and refugees themselves:
Dear migrants and refugees! You
have a special place in the heart
of the church, and you help her to
enlarge her heart and to manifest
her motherhood toward the entire
human family … Just as the maternal heart of the Blessed Virgin
and the kind heart of St. Joseph
keep alive the confidence that
God would never abandon them,
so in you may the same hope in
the Lord never be wanting.
Archbishop Gustavo concluded, “Let us recognize the face of
Christ in migrants and refugees.
Let us welcome them as our
true sisters and brothers within
the church as our mother, one
family under God.”
National Migration Week, an
opportunity to raise awareness
about the hardships faced by
migrants, including children,
refugees and victims of human
trafficking, was observed in
early January with the theme,
“We are One Family under
God.”
The observance of National
Migration Week began over 25
years ago by the U.S. bishops to
give Catholics an opportunity
to take stock of the wide diversity of peoples in the church
and the ministries serving them.
The week served as both a time
for prayer and action to try and
ease the struggles of immigrants, migrants and vulnerable
populations coming to America
and a time for reflection on the
church’s call to “welcome the
stranger.”
In the archdiocese, the week
was observed with the celebration of the 8 a.m. televised Mass
on the feast of the Epiphany —
Jan. 4 — at San Fernando Cathedral by Archbishop Gustavo
García-Siller, MSpS.
The archbishop referred to
the gospel encounter between a
mother and a child, three wise
men from the East and King
Herod and his advisors. “This
familiar story is a study in
contrasts — between light and
darkness,” Archbishop Gustavo
began.
The narrative opens with the
three wise men who are searching for someone special — led
by the light of a single star
in the darkness of night. The
archbishop explained, “They
are not looking for any newborn
child but rather a newborn king
of the Jews. They have come
to do him homage even though
they are Gentiles, not Jews.
They stop in Jerusalem and ask
about the newborn prince at the
king’s palace.”
The San Antonio prelate emphasized, “King Herod is both
puzzled and threatened — by
the mention of a mere child!
Herod ruled Judah with a heavy
hand and was known for his
wealth, power, ambition and
cruelty.” The king then consulted with his expert advisers
about messianic prophecies.
“Hypocritically,” stresses
the archbishop, “Herod tells
the three wise men to find the National Migration Week, an opportunity to raise awareness about the hardships faced by michild and let him know where grants. (Courtesy photo)
“Se oía la respiración de
la noche.... Al cruzar una
calle, sentí que alguien.... se
acercaba.... Intenté correr. No
pude.... Antes de que pudiese
defenderme, sentí la punta de
un cuchillo en mi espalda y una
voz dulce:
—No se mueva, señor, o se
lo entierro.
— ¿Qué quieres?
—Sus ojos, señor —contestó
la voz suave, casi apenada.
—¿Mis ojos? ¿Para qué te
servirán mis ojos? Mira, aquí
tengo un poco de dinero.... No
vayas a matarme.
—No tenga miedo, señor.
No lo mataré. Nada más voy a
sacarle los ojos.
—Pero, ¿para qué quieres
mis ojos?
—Es un capricho de mi
novia. Quiere un ramito de ojos
azules. Y por aquí hay pocos
que los tengan.
—Mis ojos no te sirven. No
son azules, sino amarillos.
—Ay, señor, no quiera
engañarme. Bien sé que los
tiene azules.
—No se le sacan a un
cristiano los ojos así. Te daré
otra cosa.
—No se haga el remilgoso
—me dijo con dureza—. Dé
la vuelta.
“Me volví. Era (un hombre)
pequeño y frágil. El sombrero
de palma le cubría medio
rostro. Sostenía con el brazo
derecho un machete de campo,
que brillaba con la luz de la
luna.
—Alúmbrese la cara.
“Encendí (un fósforo) y me
acerqué la llama al rostro. El
resplandor me hizo entrecerrar
los ojos. Él apartó mis
párpados con mano firme... y
me contempló intensamente....
—¿Ya te convenciste? No los
tengo azules.
“...Tirándome de la manga,
me ordenó:
—Arrodíllese.
“Me hinqué. Con una mano
me (agarró) por los cabellos,
echándome la cabeza hacia
atrás. Se inclinó sobre mí,
curioso y tenso, mientras el
machete descendía lentamente
hasta rozar mis párpados. Cerré
los ojos.
—Ábralos bien —ordenó.
“Abrí los ojos. La llamita me
quemaba las pestañas. Me soltó
de improviso.
—Pues no son azules, señor.
Dispense.
“Y desapareció”.
A este impresionante cuento
Octavio Paz le puso el inocente
título “El ramo azul”. Lo
que más nos impresiona de
la magistral narración del
Premio Nobel mexicano es la
naturalidad con que actúan el
apenado maleante — ¡como si
fuera lo más normal del mundo
el acto macabro que se propone
cometer!— y su víctima, que
pudiera ser cualquiera de
nosotros.
Aunque para muchos sea
igual de difícil concebirlo,
de igual manera nos acecha
Satanás, en la oscuridad
de nuestros momentos más
vulnerables. Lo hace con
el fin de sacarnos los ojos
espirituales, para que ya no
pongamos la mira en Dios sino
en las cosas perecederas de este
mundo. Más vale que abramos
bien los ojos. Así no seremos
víctimas del capricho de aquel
maleante que nos los quiere
cerrar para siempre.
Confraternity of Catholic Clergy issue
joint statement on marriage
By Thomas McKenna
The 2nd International gathering of Confraternities of Catholic Clergy meeting in Rome,
discussed issues pertinent to
the forthcoming Synod on the
Family in response to the Holy
Father’s call for reflection.
They issued the following
statement:
“The fathers pledge their
unwavering fidelity to the
traditional doctrines regarding
authentic marriage and the true
meaning of human sexuality
as proclaimed in the Word of
God and set out clearly in the
Church’s Ordinary and Universal Magisterium. Confraternity
priests and deacons from Aus-
tralia, Great Britain, Ireland
and the United States commit
themselves to the work of presenting anew the Good News
about marriage and family life
in all its fullness and helping,
with the Lord’s compassion,
those who struggle to follow
the Gospel in a secular society.
The Confraternities, furthermore, affirm the importance of
upholding the Church’s traditional discipline regarding the
reception of the sacraments and
that doctrine and practice must
remain firmly and inseparably
in harmony.”
Confraternity of Catholic
Clergy is currently in the USA,
Australia, Great Britain and
Ireland and are national associations of priests and deacons
promoting ongoing spiritual,
theological, pastoral and human formation of their members in a fraternal context and
espousing complete fidelity
to the Magisterium under the
patronage of Our Lady, Queen
of the Clergy.

poderoso protector y auxilio en las

St. Peregrine for
sick relatives and
friends
Saint Peregrine,
as a humble servant
of Mary, you experienced human weakness and the pain and
suffering of sickness. Knowing that
medicine and human
knowledge have limits, we pray for all
those involved with
the medical profession that they will
be a true source of
healing and comfort
to all people.
Like you, we also
turn to God in our
suffering. Just as Jesus reached out and
touched you with
His healing hand, we
pray that the following sick person(s)
will be strengthened
in body and spirit
and cured of their illness by Jesus Christ
through your intercession.
In gratitude we pray
for all the people of the
world that they will
come to know you,
St. Peregrine, and the
love that God has for
each of them. Amen

Sagrado Corazón
de Jesús. Oraciones
para una grave
necesidad
Oh Divino Jesús
que dijiste: “Pedid y
recibiréis; buscad y
encontraréis; llamad
y se os abrirá; porque
todo el que pide
recibe, y el que busca
encuentra, y a quien
llama se le abre”.
Mírame postrado a tus
plantas suplicándote
me concedas una
audiencia. Tus
palabras me infunden
confianza, sobre todo
ahora que necesito
que me hagas un
7-B
favor: (Se ora en
silencio pidiendo el
favor)
¿A quién he de pedir, sino a Ti, cuyo
corazón es un manantial inagotable de
todas las gracias y
dones? ¿Dónde he
de buscar sino en el
tesoro de tu corazón,
que contiene todas las
riquezas de la clemencia y generosidad
divinas? ¿A dónde
he de llamar sino a la
puerta de ese Corazón
Sagrado, a través del
cual Dios viene a
nosotros, y por medio del cual vamos
a Dios? A Ti acudimos, oh Corazón de
Jesús, porque en Ti
encontramos consuelo, cuando afligidos y
perseguidos pedimos
protección; cuando
abrumados por el peso
de nuestra cruz buscamos ayuda; cuando
la angustia, la enfermedad, la pobreza o el
fracaso nos impulsan
a buscar una fuerza
superior a las fuerzas
humanas. Creo firmemente que puedes
concederme la gracia
que imploro, porque
tu misericordia no
tiene límites y confío en que tu corazón
compasivo encontrará
en mis miserias, en
mis tribulaciones y
en mis angustias, un
motivo más para oír
mi petición. Quiero
que mi corazón esté
lleno de la confianza
con que oró el centurión romano en
favor de su criado;
de la confianza con
que oraron las hermanas de Lázaro, los
leprosos, los ciegos,
los paralíticos que se
acercaban a Ti porque
sabían que tus oídos
y tu corazón estaban
siempre abiertos para
oír y remediar sus
males. Sin embargo...
dejo en tus manos
mi petición, sabiendo
que tú sabes las cosas
mejor que yo; y que, si
no me concedes esta
gracia que te pido,
sí me darás en cambio otra que mucho
necesita mi alma; y
me concederás mirar
las cosas, mi situación, mis problemas,
mi vida entera, desde
otro ángulo, con más
espíritu de fe. Cualquiera que sea tu
decisión, nunca dejaré
de amarte, adorarte
y servirte, oh buen
Jesús. Acepta este
acto mío de perfecta
adoración y sumisión
a lo que decrete tu
corazón misericordioso. Amén.

Herencia Puertorriqueña presentó Día de Los Reyes
Texto y fotos
por Roberto J. Pérez
La Fiesta religiosa de la Epifanía
con la adoración al Niño Jesús por
los Reyes Magos fue celebrada el
domingo en el AT&T Community Center de la Catedral de San
Fernando bajo la organización de
Puerto Rican Heritage Society.
Como es costumbre la festividad –con entrada libre– tuvo gran
asistencia desde la una a las cuatro
de la tarde del domingo 4 de enero
con música en vivo que dio sabor
auténtico del Día de Los Reyes,
como se festeja en Puerto Rico.
Los Reyes hicieron su entrada
para postrarse ante el niño a las
2:30 de la tarde ante el júbilo de los
niños que lucían coronas doradas.
El evento tuvo todos los elementos que componen esta tradición en
la Isla del Encanto. Personificó a
la Virgen María en la puesta en
escena una angelical niña acompañada por un niño en el papel de
San José. No faltaron los pastores
y los “borreguitos” que circundan
el pesebre del nacimiento.
Los Reyes fueron personificados por Rafael Goyco, José M.
Borrero y César Silva.

Tacos and Tequila: Austin’s take
on tacos hits the Alamo City
By Amanda Lozano
amanda@laprensasa.com
Price range: $-$$
Austin and San Antonio: it’s
the never-ending feud of which
city reigns supreme.
Most of the time, Austinites
and San Antonians have conflicting viewpoints on everything
from lifestyles to music.
That being said, the Alamo
City and the Capital City have
two completely different interpretations on the way the towns
prepare tacos. Enter Tacos and
Tequila (TNT): Austin’s take on
the iconic eat.
TNT is an experimental concept, much like everything in
Austin. The interior of the place
is extremely trendy, modern and
urban, yet comfortable enough
to relax and down a few drinks.
The art within is a mix of Pablo
Picasso meets Market Square:
lyrical abstraction with that touch
of modernism. TNT is smack
dab on Broadway Street, across
from the Pearl, on the corner of
Josephine. Seeing cars and pedestrians from the windows only
adds to the urban feel.
Like most taquerias in town,
you are greeted with a generous serving of chips and salsa.
Served in a large brown bag,
there are yellow and blue corn
chips, in addition to baked sweet
potato in the medley. I’m not a
fan of sweet potato in the slightest, but TNT dusts this addictive
seasoning on them that hooked
me in.
Made with ingredients like
buffalo chicken, seared ahi tuna,
and chimichurri beef tenderloin,
you won’t be seeing any chorizo
con papas or queso y frijoles tacos here, but that’s OK. It’s good
to turn from the comfy breakfast
taco phase and trek for tortillas
elsewhere sometimes.
There are five more types
of meat you can choose to put
in your tacos, including BBQ
pulled pork, grilled chicken or
steak, corn crusted chicken, rojo
shrimp and southwest veggie.
Each of them has a flavor spectrum of its own.
A couple of my favorites
include the shrimp, tuna and
buffalo chicken. Rojo Shrimp
is rubbed with recado rojo, or
achiote paste. Popular in Yucatan, this spice gives the shrimp a
warm, savory taste. Sriracha and
orange baste are marinated with
the shrimp, too, giving it a spicy,
yet citrusy taste. Garnished with
sweet mango, red peppers, and
red onions, the combination is
delightful.
Seared Ahi Tuna is like sushi meets tacos in a Japanese/
Mexican love affair. The tuna,
is drizzled with an agave soy
glaze, horseradish and sesame
seeds. There is a beauty in seared
tuna. Almost raw but barely to
the point of cooked, TNT has
mastered the art of finding the
delicate balance between the two.
Buffalo Chicken is good for
those that prefer something more
typical. Like a saucy chicken
Pictured is a Seared Ahi Tuna, Rojo Shrimp and a Buffalo Chicken

wing, the sauce is spicy, and buttery. The street taco is adorned
with cauliflower, cabbage and
red and green bell pepper. It’s
good for those that don’t want
to venture out into something too
experimental.
Tacos are served with a small
scoop of sweet corn cake. The
tacos cost about $3.50 a pop, but
they are definitely worth it. No
need to diss TNT as their tacos
are in a league on their own, and
you only need to eat like two
of them to feel full. During the
week, TNT has a lunch special
that gets you two tacos, and unlimited refills on a drink for $10.
It happens Monday-Thursday.
Salads are a little more costly,
and will run you anywhere from
$10 to $14, but who really goes
to a taco place for a salad?
In addition, TNT has $1.50
street tacos daily from 4 p.m.-7
p.m. You can choose from four
flavors of street tacos: three that
aren’t on the menu normally.
These include picadillo, chicken
in salsa verde, and black beans.
Happy hour runs during the same
times. Margaritas, mojitos and
sangria run for $4 a pop. The
drinks are made with a heavy
pour, so you do get your money’s
worth.
On Sundays, from 10 a.m.-3
p.m, TNT hosts brunch. For
$19.99, anything at the buffet is
up for grabs. Omlettes made toorder, waffles, huevos rancheros,
waffles, fried chicken and more.
Two mimosas are included in the
price, as well.
TNT may not be from San
Antonio per se, but they have this
taco thing down just as well. If
you are looking for a tasty taco,
or good beverage, I would definitely recommend the place, even
if it’s just once, and remember
drink responsibly

Jamie Lee Curtis: Believe in someone
By Trey Hilburn III
eloy@laprensasa.com
“Spare Parts” is a remarkable true story of four high school student underdogs from Phoenix, Ariz. who achieved the impossible
when they banded together to compete in a submersible robotics
competition.
It was there that they went against major national universities
with inspiring results.
The iconic Jamie Lee Curtis, plays the inspirational principal at
Carl Hayden Community High School who helped inspire the four
boys to follow their creativity. Her character, a naturally driven
high school principle, was an endeavor in finding a character who
would be willing to change the lives of her students.
“I made her a woman who was previously married to another
woman who had died,” Curtis told La Prensa. “Now she was a
widowed woman who dedicated her life to changing the lives of
these young people through her humor and creativity rather than
the letter of the law which is often what academic administrative
types often succumb to.”
Previous to her involvement in “Spare Parts” Curtis was not faSee Jamie Lee Curtis on

Televangelist to release
new album after 2 years
By Alyssa Bunting
alyssa@laprensasa.com
I first heard of Televangelist
from a friend of a friend who,
ironically, later joined the band.
My friend played their minialbum “Crime Waves” for me
once, and I was immediately
drawn in with the whimsical way
my favorite song off the album,
English Subtitles starts.
When I saw them for the first
time at the 1011 bar, I already
knew all the lyrics to their foursong EP. Needless to say the
self-proclaimed indie/math rock
band is one of the gems among
the San Antonio music scene and
that very scene eagerly waiting
for their new album.
La Prensa got the opportunity
to speak with Mark Anthony
Esquivel, guitarist for the band
who said they started on this album when “Crime Waves” was
released two years ago.
“One of the songs was even
supposed to make it to ‘Crime
Wave’ but wasn’t done. I’m too
particular with those sorts of
things” Esquivel shared. “It’s
taken us two years to finish this
EP, mostly due to the fact that
I wrote all of the instruments
except for one song on the new
album which was mostly written
by our bassist Steven Valencia.
A lot of the record was finished
by the time he jumped into
Tele.”
Over the two years, life and
changes have trickled into the
cracks of time and the band
that once had five members has
become a trio, which means the
Mark Anthony Esquivel plays a show with his band Televangelist
at the 1011 circa 2013. ( Photo, Alyssa Bunting)
pressure to carry the weight of
the missing instruments was a
hurdle the band faced.
“Steven Valencia and Mario
Alverado are much more of
an influence in Tele’s writ-
ing although you won’t really
hear those songs until after this
record is done,” Esquivel said.
“We have about eight new
songs in the works aside from
the seven that are done. We all
feel more comfortable with each
other’s playing, writing and
friendship.”
The band explained that they
were going to release the album digitally before they get it
pressed due to the high demand
and anticipation from their
fans. It will not be available to
the general public unless it is
pre-ordered through their Indie
Gogo page, where they’ve had
pre-orders all the way from
Australia and Asia. Through
their Indie Gogo crowd fund,
their fans raised over $1,000 so
that they can release the record
on vinyl.
According to Esquivel, “This
alone really made us want to
step up our game. We felt we
couldn’t let our fans down, so
we worked hard to produce
something we’d feel accomplished with, something they
could be proud of. This album
was completed due to them supporting us.”
The much anticipated album is
set to be released any week now
and vinyl to follow in March.
And as for what is next for the
local band, Esquivel said, “We
plan to push this record harder
than we have before.”
“We plan to tour Texas very hard
for the next year and will be hopefully doing our first national tour
in winter along with a new record.
My personal goal is to be a better
musician. I feel I have a long way
to go with my singing and guitar
playing. I also feel Tele is at about
60 percent of what we can be but I
have faith we can really achieve our
true potential, to leave something
behind, something that inspires.”

lea@laprensasa.com
The San Antonio Cocktail Conference (SACC) kicked things off
with a special opening night at the
Majestic Theatre. Now in its fourth
year, the conference has become
known for its dedication to charity,
and as a place for unique food and
drink culture.
This year’s festival has attracted
visitors across the country, but the
key players behind San Antonio’s
drink and culinary scene prefer to
keep their food and drink experiences “puro” and simple.
“I think it’s less important to be
a destination for food or whatever,
as that’s our thing, food and bar
culture,” Chad Carey, owner of The
Monterey and Hot Joy said. “You
can only get certain food and drink
experiences in New Orleans, and
New York, and Chicago. I think
San Antonio still has a long way to
go, but its moving towards that.”
The 2015 SACC brings more
than 50 mixologists and chefs from
throughout the country to San Antonio for three days, and this year’s
events feature more Texas restaurants and bars than ever before.
“We’ve always participated
in the charity portion of it, but
we’ve never really been here until
now,” Misael Gonzalez, the Bar
Manager at Bar du Mon Ami said.
“Everything about this event really
educates folks on the scene here and
outside of this town.”
In addition to the opportunity to
sample new beverages, the SACC
also offers attendees a chance to
learn more about the drink-making
process through special classes designed for anyone with an interest.
Most of San Antonio’s chefs
and mixologists hope that visitors
will learn that the best experiences
don’t necessarily have to be trendy
or complicated.
“In my opinion, cocktails should
be aggressively simple, once you
add too many ingredients to it,
you’re hurting the natural sweetness of that particular spirit and
you’re really ruining the taste,”
Gonzalez said.
Although the city’s culinary reputation has grown slowly, San Antonio continues to make their food
and drink with the same distinct
spirit. Whether it’s menudo and
breakfast tacos or a blood orange
mojito, the flavors are unique, and
they can’t be found anywhere else.

PAX South is coming to San
Antonio on Jan. 23-25 and is
brining the world of gaming with
it. Thousands of booths from
developers working on a ton of
great titles are all going to be at
the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center.
Among them, 11 Bit Studios
will be in house at booth #1442.
11 Bit Studio’s game “This
War of Mine” will be on hand and
hopefully playable.
The unique game shows the
other side of war. Instead taking
on the role of a solider, you go in
and take on the role of a group
of civilians trying to survive in
a war-torn city. The group can’t
leave their home during the day
due to snipers, but at night they
are able to scavenge and learn to
survive together.
Other people on the war-torn
streets will also attempt to kill
and loot you so that they can
survive. The cold and starvation
are always right around the corner
as well.
The game makes the player
make life and death decisions. It
is impossible to protect everyone
and, at times, sacrifices have to
be made.
The launch trailer for “This War
of Mine” featured Emir Cerimovic
who was only 9-years-old when
back in 1992 he and his family
struggled to survive in Sarajevo
during the longest siege in history.

the team that put together one of
the grittiest and most real games
of 2014.

mexicano Alejandro González
Iñárritu “Birdman” y “The
Grand Budapest Hotel” se convirtieron en las grandes favoritas
a los Óscar, tras empatar con 9
candidaturas como las producciones más nominadas a la 87
edición de estos premios, según
anunció la Academia de Hollywood.
La cinta argentina “Relatos
salvajes” competirá por el título de mejor filme de habla no
inglesa, mientras que Iñárritu
opta a tres galardones (película,
dirección y guion original) y su
compatriota Emmanuel Lubezki
podría revalidar con “Birdman”
la estatuilla de mejor fotografía
que consiguió en 2014 con
“Gravity”.
De México es también Martín
Hernández, candidato a mejor
edición de sonido por “Birdman”
y “La Parka”, obra de Gabriel
Serra Arguello que tratará de
lograr el Óscar en la categoría de
mejor cortometraje documental.
El anuncio de nominaciones celebrado en la sede de la
Academia de Hollywood, en
Los Ángeles, que tuvo entre
sus presentadores al mexicano
Alfonso Cuarón, puso a “Birdman” y “The Grand Budapest
Hotel” en cabeza de la carrera
por las estatuillas, y confirmó
al drama “The Imitation Game”
como gran contendiente.
Esa cinta obtuvo 8 candidaturas, por 6 de “American
Sniper”, de Clint Eastwood,
y “Boyhood”, del realizador
Richard Linklater que, según
los pronósticos en Hollywood,
tiene muchas papeletas para
imponerse como mejor película.
“Foxcatcher”, “Interstellar”,
“The Theory of Everything”
y “Whiplash” consiguieron 5
menciones en total.
“Interstellar” fue la única de
las producciones más nominadas
en no entrar en la pugna por la
categoría de mejor película, una
disputa en la que sí está “Selma”,
que cosechó únicamente dos
candidaturas.
Es la primera ocasión en la
que la Academia elige ocho
largometrajes para competir por
el galardón de mejor película
desde que en 2011 se eleva el
abanico de elegibles de 5 a un
máximo de 10. Desde entonces
siempre había habido 9 filmes en
competencia.
Todo apunta a que el Óscar
de dirección recaerá bien en
Iñárritu, en Linklater o en Wes
Anderson (“The Grand Budapest
Hotel”), quienes comparten
candidatura con Bennett Miller
(“Foxcatcher”) y Morten Tyldum (“The Imitation Game”),
mientras que “Birdman” dominó
las categorías interpretativas.

a robot for fewer than $800 by
using cheap parts that went so
far as to include pool noodles
and feminine hygiene products,
despite them going against universities who spent thousands
on building their robots.
Oscar Vazquez (Carlos PenaVega) tries to join the military in order to bypass being
deported, but when that fails he
decides to compete in a robotics
Naval sponsored competition to
give his life direction.
And much like the “Avengers,” the team came together from there: the leader, the
brains, the muscle and the mechanic.
“Spare Parts” makes an interesting choice by combining two
teachers into one in the form of
George Lopez. Allan Cameron
and Fredi Lajvardi were instrumental in the success of the team
from Carl Hayden and Lopez
makes the role work as a funny
and warm mentor.
While at the beginning of
this one I thought I was in for a
cheesy Lifetime channel movie
due to its basic digital cinematography and over enunciated
dialogue, the story is what ends
up pulling you in and makes you
suspend that pesky disbelief.
It is incredible to know how
hard these kids had it at that
point in their life and how all
of them eventually went on to
great things.
“Spare Parts” has a couple of
surprises up its sleeve, too. It
isn’t the straight forward montage followed by a win. If you
like inspirational films, you will
feel right at home.
Michael Mann is one of my
favorite directors. “Heat,” “Manhunter,” and “The Insider” are all
great films with unique cinematography that might as well have
a watermark for Mann’s style.
With his latest film “Blackhat,” Mann takes on the world of
espionage and cyber-terror.
After a nuclear plant goes into
meltdown and the stock market is
taken control of, due to a hacker
malware upload, the world is sent
into a panic.
The Chinese and American’s
decide to band together to find
out who was responsible for the
attack. In comes the “one man”
in every action movie scenario.
Nicholas Hathaway (Chris
Hemsworth), a convict, is given
a deal to be freed of all charges if
he helps to help locate the hacker.
Hathaway helps authorities conduct a worldwide man-hunt using
digital footprints to find out who
caused the attacks and figure out
what they were planning next.
Michael Mann still brings his
unique kinetic cinematography to
“Blackhat,” but it ends up feeling
like something that would have
been better suited for the ‘80s.
The hacking that seemed to be
a central point of the story takes a
back seat to exposition and while
the action is fantastically filmed
and reminiscent of the gunplay in
“Heat,” there is very little left to
fill the overly long two hour and
fifteen minute length film.
Another huge issue with
“Blackhat” was lead man Hemsworth. Hemsworth is great as
Thor; there is no doubt about that.
But this film made me realize
that Hemsworth is all mumbles.
And in a movie where he has to
shoot lines of sharp tech inspired
dialogue, it becomes clear that
anyone else would have been
better suited.
I know hackers, and none have
six pack abs, a perfect completion and pretty princess hair. This
film needed more acne, pasty
skin and Mountain Dew. Or, at
least someone that would have
been more believable and could
give a line of tech talk without
sounding like it was from Cliffs
Notes.
The writer really failed Michael Mann. Mann tries desperately to gain momentum and
make it one of his trademarks
but falls short due to some below
mediocre writing. This may be a
Mann’s world but it seems not
this time around.

Jamie Lee Curtis...
miliar with the story till she read
the original article that Wired
Magazine published.
“‘La Vida Robot,’ which I read
and just couldn’t believe,” she
said. “I mean, I was flabbergasted
by the true story and the courage
and tenacity of these young people and the way they decided to
compete against colleges instead
of high schools.”
Curtis, while not popular or
deemed an achiever in high
school, is the perfect example of
how creativity can lead places
that academia might not always
be able to lead to.
“High School was a misery
to me. I am the classic underachiever. I wasn’t popular,”
Curtis admitted. “My entire
high school experience could
be boiled down to when I was a
cheerleader. I loved it. But, from
a scholastic standpoint, I was
an underachiever. I think I got
a combined 840 on my SATs, I
barely got out of high school.”
Lucky for Curtis a writer and
friend of her mother’s, Gwen
Davis, gave Curtis the confidence
to come out of her shell.
“She told me ‘You are special,
there is something about you, you
are very smart and funny and I
believe you will do great things,’”
Curtis recalled. “And that is not
dissimilar to the George Lopez
character (who is actually playing
both high school instructors, Allan Cameron and Fredi Lajvardi)
and the principle of the school
who give voice to that inner cre-
(continued from page 1-D)
ativity in these young people.”
Curtis’ strong affinity is focused on giving young people
the added bonus of a pat on the
back or a vote confidence earlier
in life to get them started on the
right path.
“I believe that every human
being wants somebody to believe
in them,” she said. “It is what
we strive for, to be believed and
thought of as worthy. I would
love to see every adult in America
take one teenager and mentor
them and get to know them and
figure out what their strengths
are.”
While Curtis has played legendary roles across her career you
wouldn’t know it from speaking
to the modestly humble Curtis.
Her roles from “Halloween” to
“True Lies” were all her “being
given a chance.”
“Here is what you need to
know about ‘True Lies’, a ‘Fish
Called Wanda’ and all the rest
of it,” Curtis said. “John Cleese
[director of ‘A Fish Called Wanda’] literally did the same thing
Freddy and Allan did with these
kids in the true story of ‘Spare
Parts,’ he said ‘I believe in you,
I want to give you a chance.’”
Curtis went on to say, “John
Carpenter’s confidence in me
when he hired me to be in ‘Halloween,’ Jim Cameron’s confidence in me when he called and
said ‘I wrote you a movie,’ these
are people who did the same thing
Gwen Davis did for me when I
was younger. They looked at me
A young Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode in the movie “Halloween”. (Courtesy photo)
and said ‘I believe in you.’ And I
think we are all looking for that,
we all need somebody to say ‘I
believe in you.’”
“Spare Parts” brings to light
an incredible story that not many
are familiar with if not for the
film. Curtis herself is focusing
her attention on bringing another
less known and inspirational true
story to the screen as a producer
this time around.
“I am trying to tell the story
of Glenn Burke,” she said. “He
was an African American rookie
baseball player for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1977. After Dusty
Baker hit his grand slam homerun
that put him in the 30-30-30 (sic)
club of players that have hit 30
homeruns during a regular season, Glen Burke was the man on
deck so when Dusty Baker runs to
home plate Glenn Burke throws
up the first high-five ever given in
the universe. So, on Oct. 2, 1977
the high five was invented.
“It turns out Glenn Burke was
a closet gay black baseball player
who was ultimately kicked out
of baseball for being gay after
he was outed by his mother in
Sports Illustrated and died on the
streets of Oakland from AIDS.
His legacy is the high-five and
the first out gay baseball player.
I have been trying to get this one
made, I own the rights to his
life story which is called ‘Out at
Home.’”
Next up Curtis can be seen
in Ryan Murphy’s “Scream
Queens,” a return to the horror
genre for the icon behind horror
legends like “Halloween” and
“Prom Night.”
“Spare Parts” is now playing at
a theater near you.

LA PRENSA DE SAN ANTONIO
Querida Nina:
Tengo un problema y creo que
es personal. Yo tengo 19 años y
estoy por entrar a la universidad.
Tengo a mi pareja con quien llevo
ya unos meses saliendo pero aun
no me ha hecho su novia. Él y
yo nos conocimos en el verano
y desde entonces hemos hablado
y hemos tenido hasta relación
física, pero nunca me toma de
la mano en público y nunca me
invita a lugares en donde otras
personas conocidas vayan a estar.
Por otro lado, mis amigas me
dicen que debería de dejarlo ir
y fijarme en el chico que sí me
busca y que quiere ser mi novio
de verdad, pero yo he batallado
mucho porque creo que estoy
enamorada del chico con el que
ahora salgo. Esto también me
ha ocasionado problemas con
mis amigas porque yo veo que
ellas están muy contentas con
sus novios y he llegado a sentir
envidia y celos de saber que a
ellas sí las invitan a salir y las
toman de la mano en público, y a
mí nunca nadie me ha tomado de
la mano en la escuela.
El chico con el que salgo me
dice que me quiere y que le
atraigo mucho. También me dice
que lo hago muy feliz y hasta ha
llegado a involucrar sentimientos
y familia conmigo; sin embargo,
no logro que me haga su novia.
Dime por favor qué debo hacer
y por qué me está pasando esto.
Querida jovencita tibia:
Eres tibia porque no has tomado
una decisión firme en tu relación.
No has logrado tener el coraje y
la dignidad para poder hacer lo
que tu corazón te pide y lo que
tu sentimiento te dice que hagas.
Lo primero que debes de hacer
es reflexionar y darte cuenta si
realmente lo que buscas es una
relación o si simplemente quieres
tener a un compañero. Te voy a
ayudar un poco, y es que por lo
que veo tú sí quieres tener una
relación porque tus amigas provocan envidia y celos al estar con
sus parejas. Asegúrate de pensar
en ti porque nadie más lo va a
hacer en este mundo, y si no te
das tu lugar y pides lo que tanto
buscas y anhelas, entonces nadie
va a hacerlo.
Recuerda que los hombres son
cazadores por naturaleza, y si no
lo dejas hacer su parte es posible
que nunca sea tu novio.
Deja de buscarlo, deja de tener
relación física con él y hazle saber
qué es lo que tú buscas. Si el chico
realmente tiene interés en ti, va a
darte lo que tanto buscas y te va
a hacer su novia.
De lo contrario, si no le interesas es porque no será para ti y tú
debes dejar de perder tu tiempo y
pensar en otra persona que te haga
verdaderamente feliz. Escucha a
tu corazón, pero también escucha
a tus amigas o a tus padres, ya
que ellos siempre tendrán otra
perspectiva de lo que te sucede.

The line-ups are coming, the
line-ups are coming!
By Alyssa Bunting
alyssa@laprensasa.com
Music festivals have been releasing their lineups left and right
over the last few months.
Last Thursday, San Antonio’s
Maverick Music Festival released
four bands that would be playing
at their fest in April: The Tuneyards, Cake, The Toadies, and
Cypress Hill. With just those four
names, the diversity of old and
new has me at the edge of my seat
waiting for the rest of it.
Until the rest of the line-up is
released for Maverick, I would
say that Austin Psychfest in
May is what I’m most excited
for right now. Jesus and Mary
Chain, Tame Impala, The Flaming Lips, I mean how could you
not be excited?
Although, we’re all still patiently waiting for Free Press
Summer Fest in Houston (which
is usually out by November, I
wonder what the hold up is?) and
Austin City Limits (ACL) to use
absolutes.
To be honest, even music festival monster Coachella’s line
up doesn’t compare to Psychfest. It’s always been a painful
experience whenever Coachella
released what bands were set to
perform that year, a little piece of
my heart would shatter as I read
name after name knowing it was
highly improbable to make the
trip up there. Coachella was the
dream; it’s the Disney World of
music festivals.
This year however, my heart
remained intact, because to me,
it seemed as though Coachella
is recycling ACL’s 2014 line up
and took a page out of Fun Fun
Fun Fest’s book when I saw AC/
DC as one of the headliner when
FFFFest just had Judas Priest
as one of their 2014 headliners.
Don’t get me wrong, the lineup is
one of the most diverse I’ve seen
and that in itself is impressive.
A fake Bonnaroo lineup was
released last Tuesday with headliners that included Jay-Z and
Beyoncé which would have
been just utterly ridiculous and
would have shaken the entire
dynamic of a festival to the core
but, sadly not.
The real Bonnaroo line up
looks amazing but as far as music
festivals on a national level goes;
I think Governor’s Ball has the
best line up thus far this year,
although Lollapalooza hasn’t
announced their line up yet.
Governor’s Ball takes the best
acts of Coachella and Bonnaroo,
has that diversity factor, and a
lot of the acts are up and comers.
Bjork is one the artists on the
line up, and she just announced
she was releasing a new album
very soon so timing could not be
more perfect.
SXSW
SXSW released some of their
2015 acts earlier this week as
well; it just confirmed that there
was no need to head out of state
because a lot of the bands that
peaked my interest on a national
scale are coming right here to
Texas.
Now when I say SXSW released SOME of their acts, that
includes over 500 bands and it’s
not even scratching the surface,
the big names aren’t released
until beginning of March.
Of course, SXSW isn’t really considered a music festival
because there are more components other than the music factor. SXSW in itself is beautiful,
organized anarchy to put it plain
and simple.
I don’t plan for anything the
way I plan for SXSW. Then of
course, there’s nothing in the
world like it. One doesn’t complain because the whole dynamic
of it all is to find out where all the
free stuff and shows are.
The few weeks before are dedicated to RSVP-ing to shows and
mapping what where you need
to be and what time, the second
part of it is being glued to social
media like Twitter to find what
is going on and where.
However, with the tragedy that
took the lives of a dozen people
last year, SXSW officials had
announced earlier this year that
there would be no unofficial
shows that would probably remove the “free stuff” factor. I am
curious to see how it will change
things for this coming year.
On the Brightside, with SXSW
comes an influx of bands itching to play more shows and will
spill over into San Antonio, so it
would be wise to expect quite a
few shows that week in March.
Last year, I got to catch the Cosmonauts at the Limelight and
look forward to who will wander
into our neck of the woods this
year, especially since the venue
that is going to replace the White
Rabbit opens in March as well.
