Spooky Specter on a Silver Saddle

A True Halloween Chiller

by Albert Simonson

It's a good thing you don't know what is going on outside. While you have bogus Disney ghosts on TV, there is a real but tormented soul riding through the restless night outside. Even worse, almost everything in the story has been proved beyond a shadow of doubt.

In 1846, the land around Rancho Santa Fe (then San Dieguito) and even Viejas was dotted with range cattle and horses. Those were ranchos of the Osuna family, descendants of Andalusians from the Moorish town of Osuna, near Seville, descendants of an Osuna who had come north from Loreto with Junipero Serra. They were the kind of people who loved freedom, horses and their land.

La Inmigración y La Integración de Inmigrantes en California: Búsqueda de un
Nuevo Consenso
Por Manuel García y Griego y Philip Martin
Los 34 millones de habitantes de California representan el 12 por ciento de la población de Estados Unidos e incluyen aproximadamente 33% de todos los inmigrantes en el país y 40% de extranjeros sin permiso de estadía. Una cuarta parte de los residentes de California nacieron en el extranjero; otra quinta parte de los residentes nacidos en Estados Unidos tiene por lo menos uno de sus padres que es inmigrante. A partir de 1990, la inmigración ha sido responsible de un tercio del aumento de la población en el estado, una tendencia que podría continuar por tiempo indefinido. Obviamente, la inmigración y la integración de los inmigrantes son una de las cuestiones políticas más importantes que afronta California.

Cambiaron botes de basura por tijeras: de pepenadoras a estilistas
Cooperativa Unión Entre Mujeres

Por Colin Crawford
La hermana Teresa Jaramillo está acostumbrada a los riesgos. Estuvo en Nicaragua quince días después de la revolución sandinista en 1979, para ayudar a los pobres que habían sido desplazados durante el conflicto. Así que no debería causarnos sorpresa que la Hermana de la Misión Médica haya decidido trabajar con los más marginados de la sociedad mexicana principalmente con mujeres jóvenes que sin su intervención probablemente habrían dedicado su vida a pepenar basura en el basurero municipal de Tijuana.

From Dumps to Beauty Salons: Coop Helps Neighbors Build Careers
Cooperativa Unión Entre Mujeres

by Colin Crawford
Sister Teresa Jaramillo is used to taking risks. The Medical Mission Sister went to Nicaragua just 15 days after the 1979 Sandinista revolution to assist the poor who had been displaced during the conflict. So it should come as no surprise that she's chosen to work with some of the most marginalized members of Mexican society; namely with young women who, without her intervention, would likely spend a life picking garbage in Tijuana's municipal dump. To many, her decision to try and help these women, most of them mothers at 12 or 13 and many functionally illiterate, would seem like another risky move.

What The Heavens Say About Gore VS Bush

By Andrew Lam
As someone who came from Southeast Asia, I am no stranger to astrology. And I'm inclined to consult the occult when it comes to picking important leaders — the president of the United States, for instance. Pick one with lousy karma, and the whole country might go to pot.

Campaign 2001 Seriously Flawed
The ELECTION cycle is rapidly coming to a close. Without question, this has become an election where the candidates and the voting public have a serious disconnect. There has not been a moment, in time where the voters have been able to relate or communicate with the candidates.

Commentary on Mexico:
Tabasco: La Malinche, the Presidency or Jail?
By Enrique Davis-Mazlum
Tabasco, Mexico
-- In 1519 Hernan Cortes fought his first battle against the Indian groups of Tabasco and as a gift after the battle he was offered 20 Indian women as slaves. One of the slaves was Malintzin who was later baptized as Marina and known as Malinche. La Malinche was the interpreter between Cortes and the Indians and in Mexico many consider her as a traitor to her people. On Sunday October 15, 2000 there were local elections in the State of Tabasco, where Mayors (Presidentes Municipales), local Congressmen and Governor would be elected.

Working Poor The Forgotten People
by Tom La Vaut
A few days ago, as I glanced at the morning paper, headline caught my eye, "Income's Up as Poverty Hits Lowest Rate Since `79." Continuing down the page. "This is Good For America, Clinton told a group of politicians and economists gathered at the White House. We have proved that we can lift all boats in a modern global information based economy." Not so fast, I thought, what about the working poor?

THE RAINBOW CHRONICLES
Chapter XIX
By Jeannine Diego
Sal put an extra teaspoon of sugar in his cup. The sunlight flooded Geri's kitchen and rested on his neck and back, thawing the morning chill away. Sipping on his coffee, Sal watched Geri in silence. She seemed to float about in a sleepy shuffle from the refrigerator to the stove, to the sink, to the stove again. She'd remodeled her house since he'd been there last, but it retained the smell from many years ago. It wasn't a fragrant odor. If warmth has a scent, Sal thought, this must be it.
