The historic battle near Puebla, Mexico temporarily stemmed the desire of Emperor Napoleon III to take over Mexico. It also marked the first French defeat in 50 years. The unlikely victory over the 6,500-strong Foreign Legion, armed with the most modern military equipment of the times, also served as the catalyst to unite the Mexican nation. Residents of the state of Puebla have been celebrating that May 5th victory over the French ever since. Over the years, other parts of Mexico have adopted the unofficial holiday. Today, Cinco de Mayo festivities also abound in numerous communities in the U.S. where there is a significant Hispanic population, such as Sunnyside. The plan of conquest by the French was simple...march from the coastal town of Veracruz to Mexico's capital, Mexico City, and ransack it. What the heavily armed French, led by the colorfully dressed Dragoons, hadn't counted on, however, was the cunning of Texas-born General Ignacio Zaragoza. The Mexican general rounded up a force of about 4,500 men, then mapped out a strategy to stop the French cold in their tracks. The epic battle took place at Puebla, approximately 100 miles east of Mexico City on the morning of May 5, 1862. The French commander, in a move some describe as fool-hardy, divided his troops. He sent the Foreign Legion's cavalry to attack the horsemen under the command of Col. Porfirio Diaz, who had been ordered by Zaragoza to attack the French flanks. Diaz and his troops annihilated the French cavalry. The remaining members of Zaragoza's lightly-armed militia then went tooth-andnail with the Foreign Legion's main force, mainly infantrymen. The French suffered heavy losses, enough so to thwart their march on Mexico City. Napoleon countered a year later by sending 30,000 more troops to Mexico. It didn't take long for those invaders to conquer the Mexican army. Napoleon thereafter named Maximilian as the ruler of Mexico. Four years later, however, with the help of U.S. military forces, Maximilian was executed and his troops were ousted from Mexico. A common misconception is that May 5 is Mexico's Independence Day. It's not. Mexico celebrates Independence Day on Sept. 16. It was on that day in 1810 that Mexico declared its independence from Spain. But, it took another 11 years before Mexico forced the first of the Spanish soldiers out of the country. Mexico remained in a frenzied, political state for the next 46 years, with such incidents as the Mexican-American War in the late 1840s and the Mexican Civil War of 1858. It wasn't until 1867, with the help of U.S. forces, that Mexico finally ousted Maximilian from office and took control of its own government. NEWS `TODAY'S LOCAL NEWS TODAY' DAILY SUN STAFF Tim J.

DAILY SUN NEWS - 3 Longtime educator named Cinco de Mayo Parade grand marshal by Jennie McGhan Sunnyside High School Assistant Principal Dave Martinez has for many years worked with local youth. It is for that reason he has been named grand marshal for this year's annual Cinco de Mayo Parade. Sunnyside Chamber of Commerce Director Pam Turner said Martinez was nominated as educator of the year for the annual Spirit of Sunnyside awards. However, he didn't get the nod. She said the nomination came from Holly Ohler, who has worked with Martinez at SHS for several years. "We felt he was a good nominee and believed he should be recognized for his contributions to the community, though," said Turner, noting the chamber was looking for a parade marshal for Cinco de Mayo and believed it was another opportunity to honor Martinez's efforts as an educator and an individual interested in helping local youth. Martinez said, "It's an honor any time you are chosen to be recognized for anything that has to do with Sunnyside." He was a part of the parent group that improved the baseball fields at South Hill Park and he has volunteered his time with youth organizations in addition to educating students at SHS. Martinez was for a few years the leadership class teacher before becoming a member of the current administration. "Although I am not from Sunnyside originally, it's hard to imagine not being connected to the community, especially the high school," he said. He said he believes Sunnyside is a great place to live and "...there are lots of great things going for it." Martinez said he knows the youngsters in Sunnyside well and he knows their potential. He said he is proud of seeing all that has been accomplished by the students currently attending the high school, as well as those whom he has seen graduate. "I enjoy the connections and the opportunity to be involved in so many things," said Martinez. "I have come to know so many people. It's easy to be caught at the grocery store longer than anticipated." He said he has "...a genuine gratitude for the community and the youth." Martinez said he has witnessed the impact of Sunnyside's youth in other communities and he appreciates that the local youngsters don't take anything for granted when they have the opportunity to visit elsewhere. "They lead as positive examples," he said. As for being named grand marshal of the Cinco de Mayo Parade, he repeated himself, "I am just appreciative." - Jennie McGhan can be contacted at 509-837-4500, or email JMcGhan@DailySunNews.com Dave Martinez $ Save $ 1,000 CLIP & $AVE on a NEW XP17 or higher system CBX32MV - Quiet, efficient, environmentally responsible air handler for virtually any installation.

Coup�n Coup�n 4 - DAILY SUN NEWS CELEBRATE CINCO DE MAYO IN SUNNYSIDE! MAY 1, 2012 Police provide secure atmosphere at annual Cinco de Mayo celebration by Jennie McGhan It wasn't all that long ago that Sunnyside's annual Cinco de Mayo celebration was somewhat an unknown factor where security was concerned. It was with the help of the Sunnyside Police Department that the atmosphere changed, according to Chamber of Commerce Director Pam Turner. She began coordinating with the department when she took the helm at the chamber. "It is much more family-friendly," said Turner. Sunnyside Deputy Police Chief Phil Schenck agrees, stating, "I enjoy the event myself...I feel safe taking my family." He said the first few years of providing security involved months of planning, but now there is an established protocol and it takes about a month to plan for the event. "The focus is on making the event family-friendly," said Schenck. "We've established a routine that makes that possible." He said the department was able to gain approval from the Sunnyside City Council to establish the downtown area as a city park during Cinco de Mayo festivities. "This is to ensure gang members know they are not welcome," said Schenck. He said it's important for the police to establish a strong presence. Part of doing so is by having an operations center in place. That operations center also gives those present for the festivities a central location for meeting officers and visiting the local men and women who protect the community. Children also get to visit with the officers and receive stickers while at the center. "We want to make sure the event remains safe and problems have been drastically reduced (over the past few years)," said Schenck. He said, "There are a significant number of officers present during the event hours and security is present overnight for the vendors' peace of mind." The police officers present for the Cinco de Mayo events, said Schenck, also get the opportunity to observe first-hand community members coming together and enjoying themselves. "Even when I am working, I am able to enjoy the event from an observer's perspective," he said. "It's gives us the ability to participate and interact with individuals from our community...it's a fun event."

MAY 1, 2012 Sunnyside will host a Cinco de Mayo men's softball tourney during the weekend of its annual Cinco de Mayo festivities. Bob Sarmiento Sr. is organizing the tourney, which will be played on Saturday, May 5, and Sunday, May 6. The winning teams at the tourney will qualify for a state berth at a slo-pitch tournament to be held this coming August. He anticipates eight to 10 teams will participate in the twoday tourney, some traveling from as far away as Moses Lake and Wenatchee. The tournament will take place at Sunnyview Park, located along Yakima Valley Highway between Sunnyside and Grandview. Sarmiento believes the location is ideal because it is central to communities in the Yakima and Columbia Basin regions. The tournament will start around 9 a.m. Saturday with pool play, guaranteeing each team will play four games. On Sunday, the top teams will play in a single-elimination tournament. Competitors will be divided into three groups; the C/D Division, the E Division and the Rec Division. There is an entry fee of $240 per team. Teams can sign up by calling 836-2236 or 830-5727. The top two teams in each division will receive a trophy and a commemorative t-shirt. Every team will also receive two all-star t-shirts for their top players. Each of the teams will bring an average of 13 players with them, as well as family and friends to support them. The impact is one that benefits local businesses, including motels and restaurants. In addition, Sarmiento buys his supplies locally. "I buy all my stuff here, at least $1,000 between food and shirts," said Sarmiento. "And the players, once they've finished a game, they aren't going to want to go home and eat, so the tournament helps local business as well."

MAY 1, 2012 Variety of music to be featured center stage by Jennie McGhan Wanting to give those attending Sunnyside's annual Cinco de Mayo a variety of music, La Maquina Musical Program Director J.C. Tejeda said there will be lots of festive bands this year. "Several musical styles will grace the center stage at Centennial Square," he said. The music will include Norteno, Tierra Caliente, Reggaetone, Tropical, Norteno Banda, Duranguese, Banda and Tejano genres. "Reggaetone is a pop version of Latino music. It's a mix of Techno and Tropical music," said Tejeda, stating the younger crowd prefers the Reggaetone music. Extremely popular among audiences in photo courtesy of J.C. Tejeda Headlining the 2012 Cinco de Mayo entertainment is Grupo Alfa 7, a Tierra Caliente band from Michoacan, Mexico. the Lower Yakima Valley is Tierra Caliente. Tejeda said this is because many residents living in the Lower Valley have roots in Michoacan, Jalisco and Colima, states in Mexico. "That region is hot and dry, Tierra Caliente," he explained. Tejeda said comparing the style of music from the region is much like comparing the jazz style from New Orleans to other musical genres in the U.S. "It's regional flare appeals to the local audience," he said of Tierra Caliente music. Tejeda said this year the bands bring different styles, exposing those attending Cinco de Mayo to popular groups and expanding their musical knowledge. "Last year we had Tierra Cali. This year we will feature Alfa 7," said Tejeda. He said the headliner hails from Michoacan and "...is beloved by many Lower Valley residents." Alfa 7, he said, is a top performing group widely sought in Latin music circles. "We believe their popularity will draw the crowds," said Tejeda. Another popular music genre is Norteno Banda, which is trending among music lovers. Tejeda said, "It's hot and trending....it see "Music" next page photo courtesy of J.C.

MAY 1, 2012 Charros compete for top honors Sunday This year's Cinco de Mayo festival will again include a Charro competition. This Sunday, May 6, Charros from far and wide will be ready to take the stage for a chance at top honors. Banda Centenario will be providing live music for the Charros and their horses. The Yakima-based band is set to take the stage Sunday at around 1 p.m., after the parade, to play for the Charro competition. Horses for this competition will be dancing to Mexican country music. The competition is scheduled from approximately 1 to 2:30 p.m. at Sunnyside's Central Park. In years past, the competition was judged by three individuals. But this year, competition organizer Samuel Correa says the competition will be judged by one individual, "...someone that really knows what they are looking for," he added. The judge will look at horses' movements, how high they can lift their legs, how relaxed they are and their overall performances. There will be trophies and a saddle awarded to those who place in the competition. This year the parade will have about 40 Charros in it. Nearly 20 of the horses seen in this year's parade will compete at the Charro competition for prizes. All participants of the competition and those who ride in the parade will receive a bag of feed for their horses. Banda Centenario Del Ray will provide live music for the charro competition on Sunday, following the parade. Charro tradition an exercise in patience Training dancing horses is for any Charro a longstanding tradition of exercising patience and care, according to Samuel Correa. He himself is a Charro, which is a traditional horseman, and has trained his own dancing horse. Correa said a horse usually begins its training at about 3-years-old. Most horses take another three years to train for competition. "Trainers will expose the horse to the competitive environment during training," said Correa. He said training the horses varies from Charro to Charro, but a good trainer will be caring and reward the horse when it exhibits dancing skills. "Some have the horse learn to walk and trot at the same time...I like to reward my horse with treats," said Correa. He said trainers have adopted a method of teaching horses to dance by placing weights on the hooves, much like trainers of Tennessee Walkers do. "I have a small training circle," said Correa, noting he likes to work with his horse, exposing it to Banda music from the onset. Banda music is the style of music most often used in Charro competitions because it isn't as "blaring" as mariachi music. "If a horse begins dancing, I turn the music on. If it stops dancing, I turn the music off," said Correa. Charros, he said, began training horses as a way of showcasing beautiful horses in a competitive atmosphere. In Michoacan, Mexico the tradition of dancing horses was combined with showcase horses of Spain. Correa said the horses were bred with the musical artistry in mind. The result of breeding Spanish show horses with the dancing horses is the Andaluz, a horse of combined beauty and skill. In addition to the horse being trained, Correa is a Charro. Therefore, he must possess skills learned through his own training. The training of a Charro involves learning roping skills much like those used in a rodeo. Oftentimes, a Charro is trained by his father or another Charro in the family. The tradition is passed through the generations. The Charros like Correa will perform for those attending Sunnyside's annual Cinco de Mayo festival, and will compete to see who has most perfected their skills.

Sangria Soiree: When hosting a Cinco de Mayo party, serve a delicious, popular and effortless readymade drink, such as Madria Sangria. For a refreshing twist, make frozen fruit cubes in place of ice beforehand to simply drop in to your drink for a cooled down, mouth-watering beverage. �Viva Mexico! Fiesta: Host a fiesta that will have your friends wanting to hop on the next flight to Mexico. Set your table with festive orange plates and pink napkins and decorate the room with papier-m�ch� flowers and colorful tea lights to enhance the mood. BYOF(ood): Instead of doing all the cooking, have a tapas-style potluck dinner. Encourage each guest to bring a unique small plate of their choice such as Sweet and Salty Bites or Spicy Shrimp. This not only makes your hosting tasks easier, but also allows your guests to show off their culinary skills. DIY Drinks: To continue allowing your guests to show off their skills, try a "makeyour-own" sangria bar to wet their palettes. Prepare an assortment of exotic fruits such as mangos and passion fruit alongside pitchers of pre-made Madria Sangria so your guests can add a fun twist to their drinks. Hey Mr. DJ: Create a playlist with upbeat music that will have your guests itching to get up and groove. Move larger furniture out of the way to make room for an at-home dance party.
