SEPTEMBER 25 - OCTOBER 1, 2015

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR The ‘Prison Law Office” has cited serious “constitutional violations” in Santa Clara County jail(s). “After receiving a number of complaints from inmates, attorneys, and families, the Prison Law Office initiated communications with the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office around concerns of jail conditions. This was well before the death of Michael Tyree. (In) one of their follow up letters...they state there are serious violations of inmates’ Constitutional state and federal rights.” (source:DeBug: <http://www. siliconvalleydebug.org/articles/2015/09/08/prison-lawoffice-cited-serious-constitutional-violations-santa-claracounty-jail>). Author Ta-Hehisi Coates, “Between the World and Me”, presents concepts of why America adopted the malevolent public policy of incarceration of people of color. After the Civil War’s Emancipation Proclamation, police would ask Black men on the streets ‘if they had a job”. Those with no job were deemed ‘vagrants’ and jailed. This practice was facilitated by ‘Jim Crow’ ordinances as well as the beliefs that people of color were ‘less than’ the ‘Whites’. Also, they were judged to be ‘sub-human’ and potential criminals. Remnants of these racist ideologies still exist and are the basis for the racist attitudes many still have concerning people of color. This racist ideology unconsciously and pervasively taints all public policy at local, state, and national levels. Each ethnic group, African-Americans, AsianAmericans; Mexican-Americans’ and Native-Americans... all have many incidences which document the unequal treatment under the law which has happened historically and is still being practiced. “White supremacists” must begin to face the reality that through this nation’s ideals and its constitution, all

ethnic individuals have the right to aspire to be ‘President’. And, in fact, this nation has its first African American President: Barack Obama. Recall that on the very same day President Obama was installed, that very afternoon, a group of White political leaders met privately to plan to limit the Obama Administration to one term. They failed when President Obama was elected to a second term. In both elections of 2008 and 2012, the ethnic vote began to exceed traditional “White” voters. Today, ethnic peoples have the power to elect anyone as President of USA. This is why in our participatory democracy, it is very important that all ethnic voters get to vote; especially the Latino voter must rise to these voting opportunities. It is when ‘We, The People’ vote in substantial numbers that the current ‘law enforcement-judicial system’ will be required to meet the ideals of our American Constitution: Equal protection under the law of the land. The three very important public policy issues to be comprehensively modified are: 1) Income tax reform; 2) Lawenforcement-Judicial reform; and 3) Immigration Reform. Let’s make all candidates speak to these public policy issues. The first ‘seated President’ to visit a federal prison was President Obama, who spoke directly to inmates. His visit highlighted the social impact of that punitive 1995 Crime Law signed by former President William J. Clinton. It is that law which provided law enforcement with the legal basis to overcrowd prisons with convicted inmates whose crimes were not based upon acts of violence, sex, or drug trafficking. Too many transitional age youth make judgement errors (“bullshit crimes”), between ages 12 to 24, and end up overcrowding prisons. A similar process happened in California where Gov. Brown. under Federal Court order duress, came

OPINION

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

up with the ‘realignment plan’ designed to relieve state prison overcrowding by sending inmates back to county jails. Sheriff Laurie Smith has begun development of additional jail facilities here in Santa Clara County. That new jail should not be built without full input from the community, especially the local Latino community which is the source of 50% of current county jail inmates. AfricanAmericans account for 14% (total persons of color: 64% costing $45,000 per inmate per year while in custody; for 5,000 inmates that amounts to $225,000,000 per year). The above does not present the full socio-economic price tag. One loss is a member of the local labor force. Another is the impact on family relationships; the basic building block of any community. When a family member (usually the male head of household) is imprisoned, it is the woman (wife) who is burdened with making ends meet. She is usually not eligible for any kind of public assistance: housing/rent; food stamps; kid’s education, health care; child care, etc. Many such ‘single moms with kids’ end up ‘having mental health challenges from anxiety, stress, lack of sleep, etc. The kids suffer too. The Atlantic Journal, October 2015 edition has an article authored by Ta-Nehisi Coates, “The Black Family in the Age of Mass Incarceration” which is recommended reading by all who want to understand why the current “Law-Enforcement-Judicial System” needs a complete revision. The present system is very punitive and simply not objective nor impartial. Ending the age of mass incarceration is a political process....so all ethnic folks need to plan to vote in all elections. Let’s begin by holding the local Sheriff accountable and responsible. Ethnic voters, especially Latino voter, must plan to vote for essential changes ‘in their own community’s interests’.

José López Zamorano LAREDHISPANA.ORG La crisis de refugiados en Siria detonó en días pasados una natural solidaridad internacional. Las imágenes del deceso de Aylan, el pequeño sirio de 3 años cuya embarcación sucumbió en las costas de Turquía, fue un llamado de alerta a la conciencia internacional sobre la responsabilidad de los gobiernos para asistir a los más vulnerables de nuestra sociedad. Alemania anunció su disposición a aceptar hasta 500,000 refugiados al año. Estados Unidos, que el año fiscal pasado sólo aceptó a 1,500 sirios por razones de seguridad nacional, aceptó sextuplicar esa cantidad a 10,000 para 2016. Varios países latinoamericanos como Venezuela, México y Chile hicieron ofrecimientos para acoger refugiados. El mismo día que el secretario de Estado John Kerry visitó el Congreso para discutir el nuevo techo de refugiados internacionales

para el año 2016, tentativamente de 75,000, un grupo de misioneros y activistas centroamericanos llegó al mismo Capitolio para pedir a los legisladores estadounidenses una atención similar a los hermanos de Honduras. Más de medio millón de hondureños viven en Estados Unidos y más de la mitad de ellos son inmigrantes indocumentados. El año pasado fueron deportados más de 40,000 que intentaron ingresar de manera ilegal a este país, muchos de ellos menores de edad. Los sacerdotes y activistas   desean que el gobierno del presidente Barack Obama conceda a los desplazados de Honduras el mismo beneficio que otorga alguien que huye de la violencia en países como Siria: la oportunidad de probar si tienen un reclamo legítimo de asilo político, antes que repatriarlos de manera sumaría a sus países a enfrentar la violencia de las pandillas y del crimen organizado. Jim McGovern, el congresista demócrata de Massachusetts que fue anfitrión del foro, reconoció que Estados Unidos tiene que hacer un mejor trabajo para atender las necesidades de los mi-

3

grantes de Centroamérica, especialmente de Honduras, Guatemala y El Salvador. “Encuentro particularmente irónico en este momento, cuando muchos de mis colegas están hablando de la necesidad de que Europa asuma una mayor responsabilidad de los refugiados que salen de Siria… cuando se trata de un grupo mucho más pequeño de migrantes de América Central, especialmente niños, esos mismos miembros del Congreso dicen que no pueden hacer nada”, lamentó. El legislador McGovern tiene razón. Se trata de un doble estándar que debería ser corregido. Los activistas sólo piden un trato digno y humanitario para los migrantes de América Central. Nada más y nada menos. En su opinión, la oportunidad del Congreso para enmendar el problema se encuentra en una política migratoria más sensible y en la aprobación de los 1,000 millones de dólares solicitados por la Casa Blanca para lidiar con las causas de la violencia. Y los latinos residentes de Estados Unidos tienen la oportunidad de solidarizarse con sus hermanos centroamericanos haciéndoles saber a sus congresistas que la solidaridad empieza por la casa del vecino.

STATEPOINT

NEWSUSA So much for thinking we know everything that matters about our spouse or significant other -- at least, it seems, when it comes to money. According to Fidelity Investments’ new “2015 Couples Retirement Study,” while the overwhelming majority of couples surveyed said they communicate “exceptionally well” or “very well” about financial matters, a whopping 43 percent couldn’t correctly identify how much their partner earned -- up 16 percent from the last time the question was asked two years ago. And 10 percent of those in the dark were off by $25,000 when they apparently tried guessing. “We know couples don’t always agree when it comes to money, but we were surprised how many missed the mark on the question of their partner’s salary,” says John Sweeney, Fidelity’s executive vice president of retirement and investing strategies. “If gaps exist

around basic questions like that, couples might have other opportunities for improvement on the financial front, including how and where to retire and later-inlife issues like eldercare and estate planning.”

* If you add up all our investible assets -- i.e., bank accounts, mutual funds, retirement accounts, and stocks and bonds -- what’s the grand total? (Survey results: 36 percent of couples couldn’t agree.)

Feeling a bit smug because you know how much your other half makes right down to the last decimal point? Then go ahead if you dare -- and try asking him or her these questions to see how you stack up:

* Traveling the world or staying put? (Survey results: One in three gave conflicting visions of their expected post-retirement lifestyle.)

* How much do we need to save to maintain our current lifestyle in retirement? (The survey results: 48 percent had “no idea,” and another 47 percent -- particularly, alas, Baby Boomers closest to retirement -- disagreed on a figure.) * How much can we expect in Social Security benefits to help complement what we’ve saved independently? (The survey results: 60 percent of all couples and 49 percent of Boomers drew a complete blank, even though the government regularly mails the info out.)

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

There are additional interactive “Couples Quiz” questions on Fidelity’s website (fidelity.com/couplesquiz) that you might want to try, including a fun one about what you’d do if your favorite store was having a blowout sale. Answering them produces your “Financial Personality,” and you’re encouraged to share the results with your partner and learn how to navigate the retirement process together. A word of advice: While it pays to be honest, think long and hard about how badly you want to hit that sale.

Nearly half of Americans describe themselves as “good savers,” according to the TD Bank Saving and Spending Survey, and Millennials are leading the charge. Fifty-six percent of Millennials report they are good savers, compared with 43 percent of Gen Xers and 48 percent of Baby Boomers.

Remember, even small contributions could make a big difference down the line. • View salary increases as an opportunity to boost savings. Allocate a portion of raises to savings, setting up a direct deposit into savings accounts.

Although encouraging, there is always room for improvement. Ryan Bailey, Head of Deposit Products, Payments and Non-Real Estate Lending at TD Bank, recommends the following smart saving tips for Millennials:

• Nearly seven in 10 Millennials admit to indulging on impulse purchases. Create a budget to help curtail impulse spending to ensure you have money for your rainy day fund.

Saving for the future may seem like a distant issue for young professionals already saddled with high costs of living and student loans. But by establishing good saving habits today, Millennials can ensure a lifetime of financial health.

RECIPE / HOME

NAPS Each year, approximately 7 million pets enter U.S. shelters. Unfortunately, 3 million of them are euthanized—but you can help change that. Save a life by choosing to adopt your next dog and consider these tips. Step 1: Test the waters Before committing to adopting your own dog, volunteer to pet sit for a friend or foster from a shelter. You can care for a dog while it grows or recovers from illness or surgery. Plus, you can help save lives by freeing up space in a shelter. Step 2: Do your research Find vet offices close to home and your job, as well as low-cost spay/neuter clinics in case your dog isn’t already fixed. Check out breed restrictions where you live to ensure that when you bring your new dog home, there are no barriers to unconditional love. Step 3: Make a plan Plan a budget to make sure your new dog gets what he or she needs. These costs can range from pet sitters to training classes, and from food and bowls to collars and a leash. It’s also important to think about potential vaccinations and microchips to keep your new dog happy and healthy. While loving an adopted dog comes with a cost, the lifetime of love in return is invaluable.

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

SEPTEMBER 25 - OCTOBER 1, 2015

Step 4: Choose your companion While it’s impossible to predict which dog will steal your heart, it can be helpful to research breeds ahead of time that fit your lifestyle. Consider things like energy levels, grooming maintenance required and the ideal age of your companion before going to the shelter. For example, a corgi’s high energy is a great complement to an outdoorsy lifestyle. However, an older dog may be a better fit for a low-key environment. If your heart is set on a purebred, you’ll be glad to know that about 25 percent of dogs in shelters are purebred. Welcoming an adoptable dog into your home is much more than just daydreaming about petting your neighbor’s pup. When you adopt, you not only save a life, you also enrich your own. By bringing home a new best friend, you can be a part of PetSmart Charities’ mission to end pet homelessness in a generation. And don’t forget about feline friends. If a dog isn’t the right fit for you and your family, there are plenty of loving cats and kittens ready to call your house home.

For more information, go to www.petsmartcharities.org. Find your ‘furever’ friend at a local rescue shelter.

Ohsheglows (Vegan, gluten-free, oil-free) Soft and muffin-like in texture, these oil-free pumpkin oatmeal bars are light enough for breakfast and all your snacking needs. Yield 9-12 squares Prep Time 20 Minutes Cook time 20 Minutes Ingredients: 1 flax egg: (1 tablespoon ground flax mixed with 3 tablespoons water) 1/2 cup unsweetened canned pumpkin purée 3/4 cup coconut sugar 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt or pink Himalayan sea salt 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg 3/4 cup gluten-free rolled oats, ground into a flour (Or use 3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon oat flour) 3/4 cup gluten-free rolled oats 3/4 cup almond flour (not almond meal) 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder (for enhanced binding) 1/2 cup pecan halves, chopped 2 tablespoons mini non-dairy chocolate chips, for garnish

Preheat oven to 350F and line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper. Mix flax egg in a small bowl or mug and set aside to thicken for about 5 minutes. In a large mixing bowl, beat the pumpkin and sugar with electric beaters until combined. Pour in the flax egg and vanilla extract and beat until combined. Add the baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg and beat again. Finally add in the oat flour, rolled oats, almond flour, arrowroot flour, and pecans. Beat until combined. Spoon dough into prepared pan and spread out until smooth and even. The dough will be very sticky, but this is normal. I like to cover the dough with a piece of parchment paper and roll it with a pastry roller. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top and press down. Bake for 15-19 minutes (I baked for 18 minutes), until lightly golden and firm to the touch. Be sure not to overbake. Place pan on a cooling rack for 10 minutes. Then, lift out and place square directly on cooling rack for another 10-20 minutes, until cool. Slice and enjoy! The bars will crumble slightly if sliced warm, but they firm up nicely when cooled. Tips: 1) Instead of coconut sugar, you can try using Sucanat or natural cane sugar. Also, if you’d like a less sweet square you can try reducing the sugar a bit. 2) To make the freshly ground oat flour, add 3/4 cup rolled oats into a high speed blender. Blend on high until a fine flour forms. You can also simply use store-bought oat flour (3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon should do it).


SEPTEMBER 25 - OCTOBER 1, 2015

Ya sea que ponga alimentos en el refrigerador, el congelador o el aparador, cuenta con muchas oportunidades para evitar las enfermedades trasmitidas por los alimentos. La meta es evitar que usted y otras personas se enfermen por microorganismos como Salmonella, E. coli O157:H7 y C. botulinum, éste último provoca botulismo. Mantener los alimentos congelados a temperaturas adecuadas es una de las mejores formas de evitar o desacelerar la proliferación de estas bacterias. Estos consejos de almacenamiento de alimentos pueden ayudarle a evitar las enfermedades transmitidas por los alimentos. Prácticas básicas de almacenamiento Refrigere o congele inmediatamente los alimentos perecibles. Se deben colocar los alimentos que requieren refrigeración en el refrigerador tan pronto como llegue a casa. Siga la “regla de las dos horas” para dejar fuera los alimentos que necesiten refrigeración a temperatura ambiente. Nunca permita que carne, ave, mariscos, huevos, productos u otros alimentos que requieran refrigeración permanezcan a temperatura ambiente por más de dos horas (una hora si la temperatura ambiente es sobre 90° F). Esto también se aplica a alimentos como sobras, cajitas para las sobras y alimentos para llevar. Además, al almacenar alimentos, no llene el refrigerador o congelador tan apretado que no pueda circular aire. Mantenga sus aparatos a las temperaturas adecuadas. Mantenga la temperatura de su refrigerador a 40°F (4° C) o menos. La temperatura del congelador debe ser 0° F (-18° C). Verifique periódicamente las temperaturas. Los termómetros de los artefactos son la mejor forma de conocer estas temperaturas y generalmente son económicos. Verifique las instrucciones

de almacenamiento en las etiquetas.

Mantenga cubiertos los alimentos.

Muchos otros alimentos aparte de las carnes, vegetales y productos lácteos deben mantenerse fríos. Si no refrigeró adecuadamente algún alimento, normalmente lo mejor es desecharlos.

Almacene los alimentos refrigerados en recipientes cubiertos o bolsas de almacenamiento selladas y verifique diariamente que las sobras no estén descompuestas. Almacene huevos en su caja dentro del refrigerador, en lugar de la puerta, donde la temperatura es mayor.

Consuma los alimentos listos para comer tan pronto como sea posible. Se deben consumir alimentos listos para comer refrigerados tan pronto como sea posible. Mientras más prolongado sea el almacenamiento en el refrigerador, habrá más posibilidad de que la Listeria, una bacteria que provoca enfermedades transmitidas por los alimentos, pueda desarrollarse, especialmente si la temperatura del refrigerador es superior a 40° F (4° C). Se debe desechar cualquier alimento que se vea o huela sospechoso. El moho es una señal de descomposición. Éste puede desarrollarse incuso en condiciones de refrigeración. El moho no es una amenaza principal para la salud, pero puede hacer que los alimentos sean poco apetecibles. La práctica más segura es desechar los alimentos que tengan moho. Consejos de refrigeración Marine alimentos dentro del refrigerador. Las bacterias se pueden multiplicar rápidamente en alimentos que se dejan marinando a temperatura ambiente. Además, nunca vuelva a usar líquido de marinado como salsas, a menos que lo hierva rápidamente primero. Limpie el refrigerador en forma regular y limpie inmediatamente los derrames. Esto ayuda a reducir la proliferación de la bacteria Listeria y evita que los goteos de la carne que se descongela permitan que las bacterias de un alimento se propaguen a otro. Limpie frecuentemente el refrigerador.

HEALTH

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

Verifique las fechas de vencimiento. Si ha pasado la fecha de vencimiento de un alimento, deséchelo. Si no está seguro o si el alimento parece cuestionable, deséchelo. Información sobre el congelador Los alimentos que se congelan y cuecen en forma adecuada son seguros. Los alimentos que se manipulan y almacenan adecuadamente en el congelador a 0° F (-18° C) permanecerán seguros. Aunque el congelamiento no elimina la mayoría de las bacterias, detiene su desarrollo. Aunque los alimentos serán seguros indefinidamente a 0° F, su calidad disminuirá mientras más permanezcan en el congelador. Su blandura, sabor, aroma, jugosidad y color pueden verse afectados. Se debe almacenar las sobras en recipientes herméticos. Con alimentos congelados comercialmente, es importante seguir las instrucciones de cocción del paquete para garantizar su seguridad. El congelamiento no reduce los nutrientes. Hay pocos cambios en el valor proteico de los alimentos durante el congelamiento. La quemadura por congelamiento no significa que los alimentos no sean seguros. La quemadura por congelamiento es un asunto de la calidad de los alimentos, no de su

seguridad. Se presenta en la forma de manchas parecidas al cuero de color gris o café en los alimentos congelados. Se puede producir cuando no se envuelven completamente los alimentos en paquetes herméticos, provocando manchas secas en los alimentos. Se debe supervisar los termómetros para refrigerador/congelador.

Verifique regularmente la temperatura (al menos una vez a la semana). En caso de que se corte la electricidad En caso de que se corte la electricidad, mantenga cerradas las puertas del refrigerador y del congelador tanto como sea

This Week Marks National Voter Registration Day

Santa Clara County CALIFORNIA Experienced outdoor leaders from Santa Clara County Parks and Latino Outdoors will lead a two-mile family friendly nature hike along the Sanborn Park Nature Trail on Sunday, September 27. The free outing will be led by a bilingual park ranger and is designed to encourage Latino families to explore nature. Along with their families, students from Crittendon Middle School and Sacred Heart Nativity School, will learn about park ecology, wildlife, park stewardship and careers in the outdoors. Latino Outdoors aims to bring Latino families together for hikes, campouts and other outdoor activities. The joint effort is part of a larger national movement to connect Latinos with nature. “We are excited to be teaming up with Santa Clara Parks for the first time,” said Jose Gonzalez, Founder of Latino Outdoors. “For a number of reasons, many Latinos do not get to experience our country’s local, state and national parks. We are working to break down language, cultural, socio- economic and transportation barriers and help open

up a whole new world for our community.” For the organized hike, participants are advised to dress in layers for a cool morning, warm midday and wear comfortable clothes and shoes. They should also bring plenty of water and a lunch. Although the outing is free, please confirm attendance with a community group contact. The Santa Clara County Parks and Recreation Department has provided recreational opportunities, beautiful parks and precious natural resources for Santa Clara County residents for more

than 50-years. This golden legacy has resulted in one of the largest regional park system in the State of California. With roots in the past, a presence in the present and vision for the future, Latino Outdoors is a network of leaders committed to engaging Latinos/as in the outdoors, connecting familias and youth with nature, and empowering our community of storytellers to explore and share their personal experiences. Our growing online platform allows participants to creatively document their cultural connections to conservation, the environment, and the Great American Outdoors with the world.

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE SACRAMENTO, Calif. - This Tuesday marked National Voter Registration Day, and a major change to the way California registers its voters sits on the governor’s desk awaiting his signature. Assembly Bill 1461 would require the Department of Motor Vehicles to automatically register residents to vote when they apply for, or renew, their California driver’s license or state I.D. card - unless that person specifically opts out. Trudy Schafer, senior director for programs with the League of Women Voters of California, says the system would include new keypads that enable license applicants to fill out one form for both the license and voter registration. “It asks you your party preference, and asks if you want to be a permanent vote-bymail voter,” she says. “It lets

you do all of the work that would give you the kind of information we think everybody needs with every election.” An estimated 7 million Californians are eligible to vote but are not registered. Schafer says the bill specifies that non-citizens applying for driver licenses are excluded from the voter registration. She would like the governor to direct the DMV to get the changes in place right away. “We would like him to make it very clear that the DMV should start implementing the streamlined voter registration early in 2016,” she says. “It should happen before the June primary.” Governor Brown has until Oct. 11 to sign some 600 bills, veto them, or let them become law without a signature. Additional voter information is available at the California Secretary of State website at registertovote.ca.gov.

San Jose CALIFORNIA The City of San José and the San José Fire Department has been awarded a $3,328,458 Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response Federal Grant (SAFER) from Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This federal grant will provide funding for 14 firefighters and improve staffing levels and minimize brownouts of fire stations. In alignment with the Mayor’s June Budget Message, approval of the SAFER grant will allow the City to hire and recruit more firefighters. SAFER funded personnel could be assigned to relief positions to minimize brown

outs or utilized to place an engine back in service for more water availability. Both these deployment strategies would restore services to January 2011 levels, consistent with the City Council goals.   “I’m grateful to the City administration and Fire Department for their dedication in pursing this critical funding. Council’s acceptance of the grant today, is another step towards returning to a safer San José,” said Mayor Liccardo.   This is the third SAFER grant the City of San José has received from FEMA, for a combined total of $26.8 million that will allow for the restoration of a total of 90 sworn Fire positions.

Honda Continues Legacy of Championing Full Funding for BART Silicon Valley CALIFORNIA Today, Congressman Mike Honda (D-Silicon Valley) announced that the Department of Transportation has awarded $150 million to the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) to fully fund the next year of construction of the BART Silicon Valley Berryessa Extension. Honda used his seat on the powerful House Appropriations Committee to ensure that the funding was included in the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Bill for FY 2016. On Friday the 18th, that funding was delivered through the Department of Transportation’s Fed-

eral Transit Administration. “Since coming to Congress, I have worked with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to ensure that the BART Silicon Valley Extension receives federal funding. In Silicon Valley, the capital of innovation and manufacturing, we lead in many industries, including progressive transportation projects that will reduce traffic on our roadways and protect our environment,” said Honda. Honda previously worked with VTA and the Secretary of Transportation to secure the $900 million federal Full Funding Grant Agreement needed for the BART Silicon Valley Project. Working through the Appropriations Committee, Honda has now brought the first $700 million back home to build the Berryessa Extension, which cre-

ates 2,500 jobs annually during construction, and 7,400 permanent jobs per year. “Congressman Honda deserves much credit for his excellent work on the House Appropriations Committee to bring this critical infrastructure investment to the Valley. His advocacy will pay dividends for our community with improved public transportation and economic benefits for many years to come,” said Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren.

“VTA’s BART Silicon Valley Berryessa Extension Project is past the halfway point on construction. We are ahead of schedule, and poised to deliver the largest transportation infrastructure improvement project in Santa Clara County’s history in late 2017,” said VTA Board Chair Perry Woodward. “This accomplishment could not have been possible without the federal government’s support and the transportation advocate we have in Congressman Honda.”

Contra Costa County Shows It Cares Viji Sundaram NEW AMERICA MEDIA Six years after ending a health care program for its undocumented residents, on September 22 the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors voted 4 to 1 to restore it as a one-year pilot program Contra Costa Cares is not a full-scope health care program, but it will provide 3,000 undocumented county residents preventive health care and limited primary care so visits to the emergency rooms will be reduced. An estimated 15,000 to 19,000 undocumented people currently live in Contra Costa County. The county has set aside $500,000 from its general fund to launch the program in November, and is expecting a matching sum from local hospitals. “There’s a lot of potential to get other revenue streams once the project ends,” said Anthony Wright, executive director of Health Access California, a statewide health care consumer advocacy coalition, who was among the advocates who urged the Board of Supervisors to pass the proposal. Supervisor Candace Andersen, the only board member who voted against the program, said that even though her colleagues maintained that Contra Costa Cares would save the county money by reducing emergency room visits, they did not provide any statistics on how many of the county’s undocumented residents are currently using the emergency rooms. Nor could they tell her whether the program could be sus-

tained with other funding sources when the pilot ends. “Of course, the county has a responsibility to care for its indigent,” she acknowledged. “But the state and federal governments should be able to address this problem.” Contra Costa was one of three counties – Yolo and Sacramento being the other two -- that eliminated health care for its undocumented residents in 2009 because of the recession. Earlier this year, Sacramento County restored some health care programs to its undocumented populations. Last week, Monterey County agreed to provide specialty health care to the county’s undocumented residents through a $500,000 one-year pilot project. “Contra Costa Cares demonstrates that each county can take meaningful steps to build a health care system that is responsive to the needs of all members of the community--and can build bridges to a statewide solution,” Wright said. The statewide Health for All campaign was successful in getting Governor Brown allocate $400,000 to provide Medi-Cal (California’s name for the Medicaid program that provides health care for lowincome people) for its undocumented children two months ago. The Health for All bill sponsored by Sen. Ricardo Lara, DBell Gardens, will help to streamline transitioning those children, who are currently enrolled in Emergency Medi-Cal, into fullscope Medi-Cal. The bill is currently on the Governor’s desk.

since Delano walkouts as farm workers live their legacy today by organizing and negotiating with UFW ,U.S. civil rights milestone celebrated at Delano’s historic ‘Forty Acres’ Delano CALIFORNIA —Celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the start of the Delano Grape Strike will commemorate the present as well as the past on Saturday, Sept. 26 just outside Delano at the farm workers’ “Forty Acres” complex, now a National Historic Landmark.  Grape strike veterans who walked out of wine and table grape vineyards in September 1965 will gather to observe a milestones of the American civil rights movement begun by Filipino and Latino farm workers in a dusty Kern County farm

town that spread across North America and western Europe as millions boycotted grapes and other products. The 1960s strikers and boycotters will be joined by representatives of farm workers who are living out the legacy today, including those from companies under United Farm Workers’ contracts, workers fighting for union contract protections and some who have recently walked out on strike. They represent thousands of workers in wine and table grapes, tomatoes and vegetables, and strawberries and mushrooms. Highlights of the day will be ceremonies and programs, entertainment—including singing of old Huelgista songs by the famed El Teatro Campesino and Danny Valdez—historical exhibits of

San Jose CALIFORNIA In response to the on-going need for quality classified employees to staff school sites and district offices, the Santa Clara County Office of Education is launching its first annual Santa Clara County School Job Fair. Inspired by the successful Teacher Recruitment Fair that takes place at the SCCOE each spring, the School Job Fair will connect employers from 20 school districts and a community college with applicants from throughout the region on Saturday, October 24. While almost everyone understands the importance of staffing all classrooms with excellent teachers, each year schools face a similar challenge when it comes to recruiting highly skilled bus drivers, clerical staff, custo-

dians, cooks, classroom assistants and other “behind the scenes” employees who keep students safe and ensure schools run smoothly. “Knowing how valuable our Teacher Recruitment Fair is for county schools in seeking well-qualified certificated staff, we saw this as a great opportunity to expand the reach of our services to our district partners,” said Superintendent of Schools Jon Gundry. “This event is a win/win for both districts in need of excellent nonteaching staff members and candidates looking for rewarding careers serving our communities.” Applicants who register in advance will be pre-

screened, tested for the positions in which they’re interested, and allowed in early at 9 a.m. on the day of the fair. This will give them the first opportunity to meet with hiring managers and discuss their career goals. Walk-ins will be welcome on the day of event until the venue reaches capacity, but will have to be screened manually, which could take several hours. For more information about the Job Fair, including tips on making the most of the day, visit the official event website at: <sccoe.org/newsandfacts/ SCCOE-School-Job-Fair/ Pages/default.aspx>.

Santa Clara County Makes Health a Priority in General Plan Innovative Health Element to Promote “Health in All Policies” and Guide Planning Decisions

Santa Clara County CALIFORNIA The County of Santa Clara Board of Supervisors took a monumental step in support of the public’s health and wellbeing with the adoption of a new Health Element as a part of the Santa Clara County General Plan. The Health Element not only serves as a high-level policy guide for County decision-making, budgeting, and program initiatives, but also as a platform for future collaborative efforts with community health partners. “The County of Santa Clara is among the first in the nation to adopt a Health Element in its General Plan,” said Supervisor Ken Yeager, Chair of the Board’s Health and Hospital Committee, who championed its inclusion in the General Plan. “This Health Element will ensure that when planning and zoning decisions are made, they take into account the impact on the public’s health.”  The new Health Element was developed through a multi-year planning and community outreach process. The Health Element will promote public health through greater recognition of the importance of the environment, how communities are planned, the social determinants of health, and other factors. The Health Element contains information and policies under the following areas: Health Conditions, Equity and Access; Social and Emotional Health; Land Use and Urban Design; Active and Sustainable Transportation; Recreation and Physical Activity; Healthy Eating, Food Access, and Sustainable Food Systems; Air Quality and Climate Change; Healthy Housing; and Violence Prevention and Safety. “Health conditions are influenced by policies and environmental conditions which either sustain healthy behaviors or fail to support them,” said Board President Dave Cortese. “The County’s Health in All Policies (HiAP)

strategy presents opportunities to address underlying root causes of poor health through policy and systems change.” Of all the health trends in the U.S., the increasing rate of those who are overweight and obese is the most alarming. In Santa Clara County, 55 percent of adults and 25 percent of middle and high school students are overweight or obese.   “Despite our ranking as the third healthiest county in CA, many health disparities persist and not everyone enjoys optimal health,” said Dr. Sara Cody, Health Officer for Santa Clara County. “By formally adopting a health in all policies approach, the Board of Supervisors is taking a bold step toward ensuring that all people in our county have the same opportunity to be healthy.”   The Health Element is also intended to serve as a model for other jurisdictions and agencies in Santa Clara County and the region. The 15 cities of Santa Clara County, private healthcare providers and networks, and many other entities will be as important as any other implementers and advocates for the goals, strategies, and policies in the Health Element.   The Santa Clara County Planning Office and the Public Health Department will undertake the Health Element dissemination and implementation plan. The first step will involve its dissemination to local, regional, state and national policymakers, cities and other agencies. This will include County departments, cities within Santa Clara County, regional partners, the State Department of Public Health, and other national partners. Additional promotional activities and coordination with integrally linked programs will be pursued during the next phase of outreach.   The Health Element can be found at: http:// ow.ly/SAeRy.

GREEN LIVING

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com Doug Moss & Roddy Scheer EARTHTALK Solar desalination is a technique used to remove salt from water via a specially designed still that uses solar energy to boil seawater and capture the resulting steam, which is in turn cooled and condensed into pristine freshwater. Salt and other impurities are left behind in the still. Less than one percent of the world’s desalination is powered by renewable energy sources today, but that could all change soon if companies like California-based WaterFX have anything to say about it. Its Aqua4 “concentrated solar still” (CSS) uses a concentrated solar thermal collector to compress heat, create steam and distill water at 30 times the efficiency of natural evaporation. It can produce 65,000 gallons of freshwater per day—and it can desalinate a wide range of water sources, not just seawater.

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE SACRAMENTO - The vast “sagebrush sea” that stretches for millions of acres from eastern California all the way to Montana got updated management plans Tuesday. That’s because the Bureau of Land Management issued 98 separate final land-use plans designed to balance conservation, recreation and development on sagebrush landscapes. Ken Rait, public lands director for the The Pew Charitable Trusts, said this is the largest land-conservation initiative the BLM has ever undertaken - one that protects the animals while allowing for ranching, devel-

opment, hunting and other recreation. “The Records of Decision that the Bureau of Land Management has come out with are a significant step in bringing a responsible balance to development across the West and conservation of the sage-grouse,” he said. The plans were finalized at the same time the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced that it will not list the greater sage-grouse under the Endangered Species Act. Matt Holloran, chief scientist for Wildlife Management Research Support, said the collaboration among disparate interests, including environmentalists, ranchers,

To wit, the company will start employing solar desalination to treat some 1.6

billion gallons of salt-laden irrigation drainage from California’s drought-stricken, agriculturally-rich Central Valley next year. Crops extract nearly pure water from soil, leaving behind salt and other potentially toxic minerals like selenium that naturally occur in the water. These excess minerals must be drained from the soil, or crop productivity plunges. By treating this drainage, WaterFX can prevent about 15 percent of farmland in California from being retired every year to make room for storage for untreated drainage water. It will also prevent the drainage from contaminating fresh waterways and endangering wildlife. According to California’s State Water Resources Control Board, approximately 9,493 miles of rivers and streams and some 513,130 acres of lakes and reservoirs are listed as being impaired by irrigated agricultural water. “If we don’t start removing the salts now, at least 10 percent of all current farmland in production in California will have to be retired, and in many scenarios this num-

SEPTEMBER 25 - OCTOBER 1, 2015 ber could be up to 30 to 40 percent, especially on the west side of the Valley where the salinity is very high,” says WaterFX’s Matthew Stuber. “Water in the drainage areas will contaminate groundwater and natural surface waterways at an accelerated pace, eventually polluting sources of drinking water and the natural environment. Once that is released into the environment, you severely damage the natural habitat and wildlife.” Another large-scale solar desalination project is currently under construction in Saudi Arabia and scheduled for completion in early 2017. The plant is slated to produce 60,000 cubic meters of water per day for Al Khafji City in North Eastern Saudi Arabia, ensuring a constant water supply to the arid region throughout the year. According to Abengoa, the Spanish renewable energy company building the pioneering facility, the incorporation of solar would significantly reduce operating costs, as Saudi Arabia currently burns 1.5 million barrels of oil per day at its desalination plants,

which provide 50-70 percent of its drinking water. Total desalination demand in Saudi Arabia and neighboring countries is expected to reach 110 million cubic meters a day by 2030. With freshwater supplies at a premium already in many parts of the world as a result of climate change, there has never been a better time for solar desalination to come of age. Whether or not this emerging technology can go mainstream sooner than later may mean the difference between a peaceful future and one wracked by conflict over access to ever-dwindling supplies of freshwater.

government agencies and oil and gas companies has been extraordinary - but it will take commitment from all parties to make this work. “For this effort to succeed as it’s been planned, I mean, all we have now are plans,” he said, “and for the success to happen, the plans need to be implemented.” Sagebrush habitat is home to hundreds of species, including mule deer, elk, pronghorn and golden eagles. Plan details are online at blm.gov. Support for this reporting was provided by The Pew Charitable Trusts.

The Fabrication of a Saint, and Why Pope Francis Shouldn’t Have Canonized Him

Christine Grabowski, Ph.D. INDIAN COUNTRY MEDIA NETWORK There is a scurrilous fabrication being disseminated by the Catholic Church regarding Junípero Serra, the missionary whom Pope Francis canonized on September 23, 2015. Monsignor Francis J. Weber—whose article appears on several Catholic websites—calls Serra a “defender of the Indians’ human rights in 1773 when he journeyed from California to Mexico City to personally present to the viceroy a Representación …which is sometimes termed a ‘Bill of Rights’ for Indians.” Note that the phrase— “sometimes termed”—implies that Serra did indeed create a “Bill of Rights” for Indians. By using the passive voice, Weber deftly avoids the issue of the claim’s accuracy. He implies what unnamed others have implied, a curious position for an archivist emeritus and author of several publications about the California missions. Archbishop José H. Gomez makes a more audacious claim: The “Representación” “is probably the first ‘bill of rights’ published in North America,” he wrote in Angelus: The Tidings Online last January. The lower-case “bill of rights” does not indicate that there is a document la-

beled that way but similarly implies that there is one that can be described in those terms. The National Catholic Review went further when it reported on May 2 that Archbishop Gomez “offered strong evidence that Serra had in fact been ‘a protector and defender of the Indians,’ and had gained a ‘Bill of Rights’ for them [from the Spanish Viceroy in Mexico City] in 1773.” The words “in fact” now assert that the Viceroy issued a document that was identified as a “Bill of Rights.” American Catholic.org makes an even wilder claim when it states that the “outcome” of Serra’s trip to Mexico City in 1773 was “the famous ‘Regulation’ protecting the Indians and the missions. It was the basis for the first significant legislation in California, a “Bill of Rights” for Native Americans.” These specious claims are not supported by the historical record. Let’s look at what the documents state regarding why Serra went to see the Viceroy in 1773 and what the missionary actually submitted. Serra’s last letter before leaving San Diego was written on October 13, 1772. It was addressed to the commanding officer of the pre-

sidio at Monterey, Pedro Fages. Serra had had a difficult relationship with the officer ever since Fages had been appointed to his post two years earlier. The backstory of that letter is critical to understanding what Serra wrote and why. In 1770, Fages replaced Gaspar de Portolá, the military commander whom Serra had accompanied in 1769 on the expedition to Alta California. In 1768, Jesuit missionaries were expelled from Baja California for having enriched themselves at the expense of the Spanish Crown. As a result, the Dominican and Franciscan replacements were accorded limited religious authority so that they could not do the same. Serra began his tenure as Padre Presidente with circumscribed powers and none over military commanders. This quickly proved a source of friction between Fages and Serra, both of whom established their headquarters in Monterey, the officer at the Presidio and Serra at Mission San Carlos Boromeo de Carmelo. The two men had divergent views regarding establishing new missions versus civil pueblos, how the soldiers should be deployed, and what the soldiers did when off duty. Despite these differences, the two leaders established three additional mis-

sions from 1771–72. Fages refused to provide supplies and soldiers for a fourth in 1772 that had been approved at San Buenaventura. Unbeknownst to Serra, Fages had an ace in the hole. Almost a year earlier, in November 1771, the newly

appointed Viceroy, Antonio Maria de Bucareli y Ursúa, had written a letter to Fages, instructing him to direct Serra and his missionaries to “obey and comply” with Fages’s orders. Bucareli wrote the letter in response to Fages’s accounts of an earlier incident that involved the desertion

of soldiers and a mule driver from the San Diego mission. Fages did not mention the helpful role that Serra and Father Paterna (from San Diego) had played in bringing about the return of the deserters. Fages only apprised Serra of Bucareli’s instructions in a letter dated October 11, 1772.

SHELLY PALMER

The hash tag #IStandWithAhmed was trending on Twitter the other day. Everyone took sides. If people need this to be a racial or a political issue, so be it. To me it is neither; it is a referendum on the quality of our teachers, the quality of the curriculum and our serious lack of vision for the future.

A homemade digital clock and a homemade bomb might share several component parts. Both devices might include a timing circuit, a display, a power supply, some switches, a radio (WiFi, Bluetooth or RF), a bunch of wires and some kind of housing or case. There are, however, some nontrivial differences. As a rule, homemade digital clocks do not contain detonators or explosives. That said, a time bomb needs a timer, and a homemade digital clock would do that job nicely. So could you tell the difference between the two devices? Could you tell a clock from a bomb?

The Maker Movement I don’t know if Ahmed Mohammed, the 14-yearold arrested for bringing a homemade digital alarm clock to school in Texas, is a “Maker” (the maker culture is a technology-based extension of DIY culture) or just a geeky kid who likes to solder. It doesn’t matter. Is it possible that he’s the only kid in Irving, Texas, who knows how to build an electronic device? And, more importantly, when Ahmed said it was a clock, how is it possible that no teacher, law enforcement officer or just plain adult knew what they were looking at?

Make a Clock!

at a glance. And if the English teacher who freaked out on the kid really didn’t know what she was looking at, surely the law enforcement officers should have instantly known the device did not contain explosives.

tor? Did he threaten anyone? Did he say, “Hey… look at the bomb I made”? He said it was a clock and they took him out in handcuffs.

If you attend a maker faire or a science fair or just hang out with a few geeky kids, you are going to find all kinds of homebrew and hacked electronics. Don’t they have science fairs in Texas?

Context In practice, most of the people I work with could easily tell a homebrew digital clock from an improvised explosive device (IED). With the smallest amount of training (or common sense), you could tell the difference, too. Certainly any science, math or engineering teacher should be able to tell the difference

looks like one), the kind of kid who builds stuff and likes science class, wouldn’t you expect the teachers to know he wasn’t a threat? Clearly something else is afoot.

STEM Is Super Important! STEM (science, technology,

engineering and math) skills are critical to our future. We need to teach our children to dream about what is possible and strive to answer questions that may seem impossible. Inquisitive, aspirational young minds are a national treasure, and while I do not know Ahmed Mohammed, he’s the kind of 14-year-old kid I’d love to meet.

Ahmed, I know everyone in the tech world (and the president) has invited you to meet with them. I’d love to meet you too, but what I’d really like to do is honor your aspirations by asking everyone to organize some after-school groups or clubs that promote STEM education. Make a clock. Roll up your sleeves, get a soldering iron, get some components and make one. Here’s a how-to article from Popular Science and here are 12 clock kits you can buy from Maker Shed. Then bring it to work or school and show everyone what you’ve learned. Then send it to the board of education in Irving, Texas. Someone needs to take them to school!

Justin Rossi Special to El Observador Raiders: It was a scorching hot day at the O.co Coliseum. It was so hot that at one point in the Raiders game against the Ravens, starting quarterback Derek Carr had to remove his undershirt from his pads in order to cool down. Oh boy was the Raiders offense and young quarterback hot on this day. Derek Carr had 351 passing yards on 30/46 attempts to go along with three touchdowns. The offense was in rhythm all game with rookie sensation Amari Cooper catching his first touchdown on a 68 yard reception on the first drive of the game. This set the tone for the Raiders and their offensive attack. In what would turn out to be a shootout, the Raiders earned their first victory over the Ravens with a game winning touchdown drive by Derek Carr. Mario Jiménez Castillo EL OBSERVADOR El 29 de septiembre se celebra el día de los tres Arcángeles que son mencionados en las santas escrituras. Existen grupos de creyentes angélicos que celebran toda la semana la conmemoración a los Santos Gabriel, Miguel y Rafael. Se les considera como intercesores entre los humanos y el Altísimo. Cada uno de ellos representa potestades y virtudes por las cuales son invocados en el mundo entero. No solamente en el catolicismo se les rinde culto, también en otras religiones como el Islam por ejemplo. El culto a los Arcángeles y Ángeles ha tenido un gran auge en las últimas décadas, miles de personas han dado fe y testimonio de lo que la presencia angelical ha sido en sus vidas. Los Ángeles son portadores de bendiciones para la humanidad.

San Miguel, junto con los Santos Gabriel y Rafael, es uno de los tres arcángeles mencionados en las santas escrituras. Él es el de más alto rango de los siete arcángeles y tiene cuatro obligaciones principales: pelear por siempre contra el poder maligno de Satanás, rescatar almas de las garras de la oscuridad, defender a todas las personas que creen en el poder de Dios, y llamar a todos los que parten de la tierra para llevar a esas almas ante el juicio del Creador. Es considerado como el Capitán de las legiones celestiales. San miguel Arcángel ha sido coronado como el eterno vencedor en contra de todas las fuerzas del mal. Peticiones: Se le pide para alejar energías y fuerzas negativas, para deshacer hechizos, embrujos y ensalmos. Para protección contra enemigos y peligros.

San Gabriel

San Rafael

San Gabriel es uno de los siete Arcángeles, es el ángel mensajero de Dios, su nombre significa”Poder de Dios”. De él existen varios relatos de sus apariciones en la Biblia.

San Rafael es uno de los siete ángeles que están apostados constantemente ante el trono del Altísimo (Tobías 12:15) Bajo la apariencia humana, siguió al joven Tobías hacia Rages, para así cobrar un préstamo hecho por el viejo Tobías a Gabelo. Durante el camino se detuvo para arrojar a un demonio fuera de Sara, hija de Ragüel, a la que obtuvo en matrimonio para Tobías. Luego fue a Recibir el dinero de Gabelo y recondujo al joven Tobías sano y salvo devuelta a su casa. Inmediatamente entró a la morada, curó de la ceguera al viejo Tobías (Tobías 5:11) y llenó aquella casa de grandes bendiciones enviadas por Dios. Su nombre significa “Dios Sana”.

Se le apareció en forma de hombre al profeta Daniel (Daniel 8:16; 9:21), se pareció a San Zacarías para anunciar que su esposa Santa Isabel daría a luz a San Juan Bautista (Lucas 1:11,19), y también se le apareció a la Santísima Virgen María para anunciarle que sería la madre de El Salvador del Mundo(Lucas 1:26) Peticiones: San Gabriel es uno de los grandes intermediarios entre el mundo y el cielo. Pídale cuando esté a la espera de grandes noticias, cuando se ha de resolver algún litigio y cundo necesite la protección divina.

San Miguel Arcángel

Peticiones: San Rafael es uno de los médicos celestiales, pídale para cualquier caso de enfermedad. Además se le reza para contar con la bendición de Dios en el seno familiar.

After an untimely interception off an under throw which allowed the Ravens to take a three point lead late in the game, Derek Carr earned his first signature win of his young career by marching down the field with poise and confidence on the final drive of the game capped off by a clutch throw to Seth Roberts for the game winner. Former 49er Michael Crabtree came out strong in this game with multiple tough catches. Both he and Amari Cooper went over 100 receiving yards on the day with a touchdown. Overall the Raiders looked great on offense with the passing attack flourishing and Latavius Murray and the rushing game keeping the Ravens defense off

balanced. The Defense once again showed weakness and gave up 33 points for the second week in a row. If the Raiders want to win on a consistent defense, the defense must improve and get better pressure on opposing quarterbacks. 49ers: Speaking of weak defenses, the 49ers defense looked like a completely different squad than the one that showed up in week 1. After only giving up 3 points to an up and coming Vikings team in their season opener and showing the NFL that life after Harbaugh might be more optimistic than expected, the team laid an egg in week 2. The defense was torched by Ben Roethlisberger and company en route to giving up a whopping 43 points. While the offense as a whole didn’t look too bad, with Colin Kaepernick putting up some pretty good stats, the story of the game was the 49ers inability to stop the Pittsburgh Steelers offense. Steelers Antonio Brown had 195 yards receiving and a touchdown in the game. There was no pressure on Big Ben and he made the 49ers pay with big play after big play. To make matters worse, running back Carlos Hyde who had his breakout performance in week 1 was taken out in the ball game from a hit to the head. While he checked out okay, he would not return to the game. As the team looks forward, the fans are left wondering which defense will come out next week and what the team’s true identity is. The season has just begun, and it has been a roller coaster start for the Bay Area football teams.

After the deaths of his parents, Hernandez and his sister left their home country to live with their greatuncle in Hayward, CA.   He was enrolled as a junior at James Logan High School, where he joined the soccer team.   During his senior year, he caught the eye of San Jose State University soccer coach Jules Menendez, who not only recruited the young star to become a Spartan, but also mentored him as a father figure.   In 1968, Hernandez’s senior season, the Spartans reached the 1968 NCAA semifinals before falling to the eventual co-champion, Maryland.   That same year, Hernandez was selected as a first team All-American and received the 1968 Hermann Trophy as the top collegiate player in the country.   From 1970 to 1974, Hernandez helped advance his sport as a member of the US National

Team. In 1970, his two goals against Bermuda propelled the U.S. to the second round of the Pan Am Games – a first for the American squad.  In 1972, he scored one of the team’s two goals in a critical match over Jamaica; with the win, the U.S. advanced to the Olympic Games tournament for the first time since 1960.   In addition to his history-making success on the international stage, Hernandez made his mark from 1974-76 as a member of the newly-founded San Jose Earthquakes in the North American Soccer League.  He scored the first two goals in the franchise history – against the Dallas Tornado and Vancouver Whitecaps.  He retired from professional play after stretches with the Detroit Lightning and San Francisco Fog in the Major Indoor Soccer League.  After hanging up his cleats, Hernandez enjoyed tremendous success as a youth coach.  In 1976, he led Leland High School’s boys’ team to a Central Coast Section title.  In 1981, he led Gunderson High School’s boys’ team to its first CCS playoff berth.  In 1982, he began what would be a storied, 31-year career at Presentation High School, where his girls’ teams won 17 league championships and eight Central Coast Section titles.   A dozen of his players went on to play collegiate soccer, including U.S. women’s national team members Danielle Slaton and Aly Wagner, and Denmark national team member Mikka Hansen.
