El Distrito Sur de California ya cuenta con una nueva Fiscal Federal, quien desde el pasado 6 de enero a la medianoche, tomó posesión de un cargo, que desde el pasado 2 de junio de 2010 ocupó la abogada y recientemente nombrada juez de la Corte Superior de San Diego, Laura E. Duffy. Alana Robinson quien fungía como Asistente Fiscal de los Estados Unidos, fue designada por funcionarios del Departamento de Justicia en la Unión Americana al cargo, esto posterior a la renuncia de Duffy para hacer frente a la designación del gobernador Jerry Brown, y tomar la vacante del juez William Nevitt, quien ya se ha jubilado del puesto. "Las ya probadas habilidades de liderazgo, intelecto, y experiencia en litigios de Alana servirán a esta oficina”, dijo la Fiscal Federal saliente, Laura Duffy.

In a second settlement, the insurance company representing SGI agreed to pay the District $750,000, and a third settlement approved last week with LPA Architects totaled $250,000. “It’s a good win for the District, and we see this as a close to a dark chapter in the District’s history,” school board President Arturo Solis said in an exclusive interview with La Prensa San Diego after the board vote. “It shows the Board is working hard for the interests

The Chargers are no longer San Diego's team. On Thursday morning, Chargers’ President Dean Spanos, released a statement informing administrative staff and players that the team will move to Los Angeles. "At first I hoped it was fake news. It's something that is unfathomable, but it is reality," said former Chargers quarterback Dan Fouts upon hearing the news. The Chargers arrived in San Diego in 1961 to play their games at Balboa Stadium, currently used by San Diego High School. In 1967, the team moved to the current site of Qualcomm Stadium in the heart of Mission Valley to play their games.

he Sweetwater Union High School District approved two legal settlements at a special board meeting Thursday that will bring the District $8.5 million and end the last remaining lawsuits stemming from a 2012 corruption scandal that led to 15 indictments. The settlements resolve a series of lawsuits and cross complaints involving contractors that participated in what prosecutors called a “pay-to-play” scheme that led to the prosecution of several school board members, contractors, and then-Superintendent Jesus Gandara.

The District sued several contractors in 2014 to invalidate their contracts and demanded more than $14 million in refunds, claiming the contracts were illegal because they were awarded through the contractors’ use of campaign contributions and illegal gifts to school board members which violated state law. The largest settlement came from the insurance company representing Gilbane, a global construction company with annual revenues of over $4 billion, who agreed to pay the District $7.5 million. The District had sued Gilbane and its joint venture partner, Seville Group Inc. (SGI), for their part in the

After serving five years in the US Navy, and after working for different companies in various industries, Eduardo Barreto accomplished his goal of being in business when he became office manager and partner at Pacific Coast Auto Detail Center, Inc. His business partner, R.J. Baylor, founded the company in 2004. Barreto joined the company a year later, and in 2010, became a partner. Barreto’s mother was from Chihuahua, Mexico, and his father from San Juan, Puerto Rico. Barreto was born and raised in El Paso, Texas, where he lived until he graduated from high school. “I was raised by my dad who was in the Army,” Barreto said in an interview with La Prensa San Diego. “He was Korean-American, so I grew up eating Mexican, Asian, and American food.” When he was younger, Barreto wanted to be in the business world and he thought about having his own men’s wear line. “In my senior Business Administration class in high school, I had to develop a business plan,” Barreto said. “I was going to use my last name, Barreto, as the name of a gentlemen’s clothing line made up of suits and tailored clothing. That was my ultimate goal.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 9

Nearly 60 percent of the state is still in severe, extreme, or exceptional drought conditions, the driest drought categories on the U.S. Drought Monitor scale. Additionally, the Department of Water Resources’ electronic sensors indicate that the statewide snowpack is about 70 percent of average for early January. This is an important indicator to watch because snowpack provides about 30 percent of California’s water supply when its runoff fills the state’s reservoirs in the warmer months. Meaning despite the storms, snowpack still is not where it needs to be. Statewide, Californians conserved 18.8 percent in November 2016, down from 20.2 percent in 2015 when state regulations were in place. According to a new San Diego Coastkeeper report, four water agencies in San Diego County actually used more water this November than they did in November 2013 — the last year before California started taking conservation seriously. These agencies include the City of Oceanside with 5.9 percent more, Olivenheim Municipal Water District with 1.8 percent more, Santa Fe Irrigation District with 4.1 percent more, and Vista Irrigation District with 3.4 percent more. “San Diego County continues to experience severe to extreme drought conditions. We import around 80 percent of our water from outside San Diego County. The outside sources of water from which we import remain incredibly impacted by drought,” said San Diego Coastkeeper Executive Director Matt O'Malley. “Whether it rains in San Diego County or not, we have a major water supply issue.” When California Governor Jerry Brown mandated water conservation in 2015, the average goal of local water agencies was a 21 percent reduction in water use. Now that water agencies are allowed to set their own goals, 330 out of California’s 395 water agencies, including all agencies in San CONTINUED ON PAGE 9

Three members of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors took the oath of office to four-year terms at a ceremony held at the County Administration Center in Downtown San Diego, this on Monday, January 9. The board’s only new member, Kristin Gaspar, won election in November against former supervisor Dave Roberts, who ended his effort for a second term to represent the County’s 3rd Supervisorial District. San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer administered Gaspar's the oath of office. Supervisors Greg Cox, for District 1, and Dianne Jacob, for District 2, both took the oath following their re-elections in what will be their final terms. Gaspar, the former Mayor of Encinitas, is the second new face at the County Board of Supervisors in two decades. Cox was sworn in by his wife

and former Chula Vista Mayor Cheryl Cox and Jacob by San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore. All three join supervisors Ron Roberts and Bill Horn in overseeing a $5.36 billion budget and approximately 17,000 County employees. “The highest priority we have in this County is dealing with the homeless issue,” Cox said. “I want to work with my colleagues to see what can I do to try to alleviate the increase we have seeing in homelessness and the duration of homelessness.” Cox mentioned that in the district he represents, there is plan to build campgrounds for homeless people. One will be located in the Tijuana River Valley and another one in Otay Valley Regional Park. “I want to figure out how we can make sure that those people that are in need, whether it is homelessness, medical care, or food and security, that we make sure that we plug them into the

programs and services that are already out there” Cox added. “So those people can stabilize their family situation and become more successful in their daily lives”. Kristin Gaspar, the only incoming supervisor, was at the ceremony with her husband and three children. Her parents and brother were also in the audience. Gaspar focused her speech to address the current homelessness situation in San Diego County. “My top priority is to create accountable plans to clearly define a goal and to produce results in the challenging areas of homelessness and regional public safety,” Gaspar said in her speech. “To combat the rise in homelessness throughout the region, we have to build on a network of individuals committed to resolve this issue through collaboration, advocacy, and through the careful allocation of resources.”

San Diego’s PERSPECTIVE State of the City Address Adiós President Obama. We’ll Miss You

BY ARTURO CASTAÑARES PUBLISHER/CEO

A

San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer delivered his annual State of the City address on Thursday and unveiled his priorities for the upcoming year. Faulconer outlined his plans for a Convention Center expansion, more programs to address homelessness, and increased spending for roads and infrastructure, along with revitalizing Balboa Park, expanding affordable housing, and increasing the City’s technology industry. One issue, however, seemed to overshadow the Mayor’s speech; the announcement earlier in the day that the Chargers would be leaving San Diego. “At the end of the day, Dean Spanos was never willing to work with us on a stadium solution and demanded a lot more money than we could have agreed to,” Faulconer said. “We live in a great city and we will move forward.” In his speech, Mayor Faulconer proposed a ballot measure for the 2018 election that would raise hotel taxes to pay for an expansion of the Convention Center, road repairs, and triple the City’s spending on homeless programs. The proposed hotel tax could generate between $60 million to $70 million per year. The Mayor also outlined new incentives to encourage developers to build more affordable housing for working families, especially near public transit, to increase the City’s density bonus provide incentives to developers that build more units, and also proposed to speed-up approvals to months, not years. “It simply costs too much and takes too long to build homes in California,” Mayor Faulconer said. “We’re going to slash permitting times and allow more market-rate units to be built when homebuilders also construct entry-level homes in transit-friendly areas,” he added. The Mayor’s speech also highlighted his accomplishments CONTINUED ON PAGE 7

They were robbed and at times beaten by smugglers. They held their newborn children above water when crossing rivers that flowed below their necks. All for the chance to reach the United States. Their journeys lasted months across nine borders. Last year, more than 12,000 Haitians made it to the U.S.-Mexico border city of Tijuana after fleeing Haiti, a country devastated by a catastrophic earthquake and poverty. In time, thousands of Haitians were allowed into the U.S. and for four months—between June and September 2016—an average of 33 Haitians arrived at a small church in Normal Heights seeking refuge. “Some nights 12 would come in, other nights there would be 72 coming in,” Christ Ministry Center Pastor Bill Jenkins said. “We became a little refugee camp in the heart of San Diego. Before so many of them were staying on the street.” In those four months, it became a normal sight for floors at the church to be covered with sleeping bags, inflatable mattresses, and sleeping men and women. The one shower in the building would run day and night, Jenkins recalls.

world’s most hunted terrorist. And Obama completed eight years in office without any personal scandals, without embarrassing plunders, and with grace and dignity. Not bad for a guy that almost quit politics just a few years ago. Still, political opponents paint a dire picture of the America Obama is leaving behind. In their quest for power, they depict Obama as a failed leader that pushed failed policies. They sought to undermine his achievements. Their ambitions led to the most divisive, destructive political campaign in history. So, next week, we will inaugurate a new president, Donald Trump. Trump has continued to use the same combative style he popularized on the campaign trail. He derides the press. He dismisses critics. He ignores ethical limits of business conflicts of interests. Yet, he will be our President. The leader of the free world. And the example for our kids? We will miss Barack Obama’s calm demeanor, his intellect, and his inspirational example. He was the epitome of the American dream: He proved that anyone can become President. Now Donald Trump has taken that to the absurd extreme. Adiós President Obama. We will miss you. God speed.

a hostile Republican Congress where their leaders publicly stated their top priority was to deny Obama a second term. They ridiculed his policies. They questioned his faith. They called him unamerican. It was under those circumstances that the first AfricanAmerican to be President began his tenure. Instead of celebrating the fulfillment of the American promise that all men are created equal, political rivalries cast a dark shadow on Obama’s achievement. His election wasn’t just a campaign victory for him, it was a victory for all American in that it proved that a man could be judged by the content of his character, not by the color of his skin. Barack Obama inherited the worst economic conditions since the Great Depression. The economy had collapsed under the weight of bad bank debt. Millions were losing their jobs, their homes, and their life savings. A global recession was threatening to take down banks that were thought too big to fail. Now eight years later, the economy is strong, the stock market is at record levels, unemployment is at 10-year lows, and home values have rebounded. Millions of people that lacked health care are now covered. We have seen the longest economic boom since World War II. And we saw the capture of the

a mixed-race kid in a predominately white world he would later lead. Obama went on to study at Columbia and Harvard, two of the country’s leading universities. He became a lawyer and politician, before running for and losing a congressional race in 2000. That year, Obama was turned away from receptions during the 2000 Democratic Convention in Los Angeles he attended as a delegate because he didn’t have VIP credentials. And broke from spending his own money in his failed campaign, his credit card was declined when he tried to rent a car in Los Angeles. But he didn’t quit. Just two years later, he ran a long-shot campaign for U.S. Senate against 14 other candidates, and won a landslide primary election victory in June 2004. That summer, Obama delivered the keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic Convention and instantly became a rising national political figure. A young black man named Barack Hussein Obama. And just three years later, he had the courage and audacity to run for the highest office in the land. In 2008, as we now all know, Obama faced off against Senator John McCain and won the presidency. From day one in the White House, Barack Obama was confronted with

fter eight years in office, Barack Obama will exit the Oval Office next Tuesday and leave behind a legacy that may not yet be clearly understood. And as he leaves, goodbye doesn’t seem to capture the sense of what many well-wishers want to convey. Thank you may fall short, too. In this case, the formal Spanish farewell may be most appropriate. As the swearing-in of a new president draws near, the contrasts between the two men that will change places next week seem startling. Out goes the smooth speaking, history-making President that became the first non-white person to be Command-in-Chief. In will come the first-time candidate, former reality star that shattered every convention for a presidential candidate. He’s brash, he’s confrontational, and he’s hard to pin down on policies. The contrasts are not only in their politics, but in their nature. For all the disagreements that some may have with Barack Obama’s policies, it’s difficult to argue that he’s not inspiring. He’s a man born of a white American mother and a black African father. He was raised by an Indonesian step-father, and later by his white grandparents from Kansas. He was

In September, after the Obama administration announced it was tightening its immigration policy, the City of San Diego also paid a visit to the church. The once unprecedented intake of immigrants—something Jenkins continues to view as a humanitarian crisis—was limited to six people to honor city zoning laws. At one point the number of people staying there topped 300. The church now gives priority to women and children. Some stay a night, others stay for a couple of months. Just this past month, 10 babies were born while staying at the church. Sandy Berialove

Baptiste, who is six months pregnant and currently staying at the church in a small bedroom with two bunkbeds, could soon add to that tally. The intake of Haitian immigrants has slowed down at the church, in part due to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents reinstating deportations to Haiti last September for the first time since the 2010. But shelters in Tijuana, dealing with the thousands of Haitian migrants who remain stuck at the border, continue to scramble. Most of these shelters have entered crisis mode, whether it for a lack of beds,

blankets or food or simply for not having enough space to house dozens of people every night. On January 5, the Christ Ministry Center announced a cross-border agreement with one of the places taking in the largest volume of Haitian migrants in Tijuana. The agreement was launched when a Santa Cruz man, Paul Johnston, sought to give ongoing aid to the Tijuana shelter but needed an American entity to act as a middleman, for tax purposes. Coincidentally, the past situation at the Normal Heights church mirrors the ongoing state at Iglesia Embajadores de Jesus in Tijuana, but on a larger scale. Embajadores de Jesus shelters between 300 and 400 Haitians every day. By word of mouth, Haitians slowly arrived by bus, taxi or on foot to this Tijuana church, which is tucked away in between hills sprinkled with jerry-built homes, goats, and dry brush. Inside, hundreds of makeshift beds stretch over the floor meant to hold chairs for worshippers. Haitians in need of food, water, blankets and clothes are dependent on donations because the city of CONTINUED ON PAGE 7

San Diego County Supervisors Raise Their Own Salaries BY MARINEE ZAVALA

Almost unanimously, with just one vote against, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors approved a 12.5 percent pay raise, bringing their yearly salaries from $153,000 to roughly $172,000. During the second meeting on the matter, held on the third floor of the County Administration Building, Supervisors made their final decision in a four-to-one vote. The decision was met by booing from a disheartened community. “It is truly an injustice. I think that the salaries they had were more than enough to live a comfort-

able life. While we’re out here suffering, with so many needs in the community, it is really an injustice,” said Liliana Robles of the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment Action. The Supervisors justified their decision by stating that their salary formula had not been adjusted for many years, as well as referring to their workload, illustrating that San Diego is the second-largest county in California. “My response to the fact that they had not adjusted their salaries in the past 18 years is that when you have a good salary, of over $150,000 dollars, I don’t think you

need more than that to live well in San Diego,” said Reverend Kathleen Owens of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Diego. “This increase is $19,000 more a year, we have working families that don’t make even that in a year.” Prior to the voting, dozens of people from throughout San Diego County, among them older Americans, youth, Latino community members, and faith organizations, expressed their concerns to the Board of Supervisors in regards to the salary increase. There are higher priorities, they said, such as CONTINUED ON PAGE 7

The number of people detained and drugs seized in San Diego increased by more than 200 percent in comparison to the previous year. According to Border Patrol, just during the first three months of the last fiscal year they saw significant increases in the number of foreigners, including Mexican nationals, detained while attempting to cross into San Diego County illegally. In 2016, a total of 31,891 Mexican nationals were arrested while trying to enter the U.S., in addition to the more than 6,500 aliens from

countries such as El Salvador and China. “Yes, we did see an increase this past year in total arrests of Mexican and non-Mexican people; there were approximately 38,000. In previous years, the average number of aliens had been 3,000,” said San Diego Border Patrol Spokesman Eduardo Olmos. All drug seizures, including marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines, and heroin, also saw increases in 2016 versus the previous year. In the San Diego Sector alone, over 1,200 pounds of cocaine were seized – 336 more than in 2015. Heroin was also among the drugs with the highest

increase in pounds turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration; in 2016, 3,576.2 ounces were seized, versus 2,763.54 the previous year. In 2016, there were also 78 rescues, 52 assaults on Border Patrol agents, two cross-border tunnels were discovered, and 7 people died while attempting to cross. “This tells us that these people who are trying to bring drugs across illegally are still a threat, and it also speaks of the work being done by Border Patrol,” added Olmos.

2016 Bate Récord de Asesinatos en Tijuana Plea to Protect Coasts POR MARIO A. CORTEZ

Tijuana vio su anterior cifra alta de asesinatos, establecida en 2008, superada en 2016. La Fiscalía General de Baja California reportó 910 homicidios dentro del perímetro de la ciudad de Tijuana, superando los 844 casos de homicidios reportados en el 2008, y fácilmente pasando los 652 casos de asesinato del año 2015.

La causa del aumento en las tasa de homicidios del año pasado, actualmente en 46 por cada 100,000 habitantes, se atribuye a muchos factores, sobre todo una lucha de poder entre el Cártel Jalisco Nueva Generación y el Cártel de Sinaloa por el control de la ruta de tráfico de la ciudad.

res integrantes de la Junta de Supervisores del Condado de San Diego tomaron protesta a sus puestos, que tienen un periodo de cuatro años, en una ceremonia realizada en el Centro de Administración del Condado en el centro de San Diego, este lunes 9 de enero. Kristin Gaspar, la nueva integrante de la mesa directiva, ganó las elecciones el pasado noviembre contra el ahora ex supervisor Dave Roberts, quien perdió en su intento de reelección para representar el tercer distrito del Condado. Los supervisores Greg Cox, representante del distrito 1, y Dianne Jacob, del distrito 2, tomaron protesta luego de ambos ganar una reelección para realizar un último periodo en la Junta de Supervisores. Cox realizó su toma de protesta administrada por su esposa y ex alcalde de Chula Vista Cheryl Cox. Jacob realizó su toma de protesta administrada por el Jefe del Departamento del Alguacil del Condado Bill Gore. Los tres se unen a los supervisores Ron Roberts, y Bill Horn para administrar un presupuesto de $5.36 billones y alrededor de 17,000 empleados del Condado. “La prioridad más importante que tenemos en este Condado es el encargarnos del tema de las personas que viven en la calle” dijo Cox. “Quiero trabajar con mis colegas para ver qué podemos hacer para tratar de calmar el incremento que estamos viendo de personas que se quedan sin hogar

y que duran mucho tiempo viviendo en las calles”. Cox mencionó que en el distrito que él representa hay un plan para construir campamentos para las personas sin hogar. Se colocará un campamento en Tijuana River Valley, y otro en el parque regional de Otay Valley. “Quiero descifrar cómo podemos asegurarnos que las personas que tengan alguna necesidad ya sea que vivan el calle, que requieran tratamiento médico, o que necesite comida y seguridad, puedan integrarse a programas y servicios ya existentes”, dijo Cox. “Es para que estas personas puedan estabilizar su situación familiar y tener mayor éxito en su vida diaria”. La nueva integrante, Gaspar, tomó protesta en la ceremonia junto a su esposo, y tres hijos. Sus padres y hermano también formaron parte de los presentes. La ex alcalde de Encinitas es una nueva cara en la Junta de Supervisores por sólo la segunda ocasión en las últimas dos décadas. Ella enfocó su discurso en la toma de protesta a la situación de las personas que viven en la calles en el Condado de San Diego. “Mi prioridad principal es crear planes responsables para definir claramente un objetivo y producir resultados en las áreas difíciles que son las personas que viven en la calle y la seguridad pública en la región”, dijo Gaspar en su discurso. “Para combatir el incremento de las personas sin hogar necesitamos construir una red de personas comprometidas a resolver esta situación por medio de colaboración, defensa, y con la distribución prudente de una realineación de recursos”.

Tras cinco años en la Fuerza Naval de los Estados Unidos, y tras laborar para diversas compañías, Eduardo Barreto logró cumplir una meta empresarial al convertirse en gerente de Oficina y socio de Pacific Coast Auto Detail Center, Inc. Esta compañía de servicios automotrices fue fundada en 2004 por su socio R.J. Baylor. En 2005, Barreto se sumó a la empresa y fue hasta el 2010 cuando pasó a ser socio. Eduardo Barreto es originario de El Paso, Texas, en donde vivió y creció hasta que terminó de cursar la preparatoria. Su madre era de Chihuahua, México, y su padre es originario de San Juan, Puerto Rico. “Yo crecí con mi padre de origen coreano-americano quien estaba en el ejército”, comentó. “Yo crecí comiendo comida mexicana, asiática y por su puesto americana. Así fue como me criaron”. Cuando Eduardo era joven, él planeaba ir a la universidad con la meta de estar en el mundo de los negocios con una línea de ropa para caballeros. “En una clase de administración de empresas en la preparatoria tuvimos una tarea de crear un modelo de negocios”, comentó. “Yo iba a usar mi apellido, Barreto, como nombre para una línea de ropa conformada por trajes

Incrementan Decomisos y Deportaciones

POR MARINEE ZAVALA

Durante los últimos tres meses del año fiscal, los aumentos por personas detenidas y drogas decomisadas en San Diego superaron el doble a comparación de años anteriores. Según agentes de la Patrulla Fronteriza, hubo incrementos significativos en cuanto a la detención de extranjeros y mexicanos que intentaban cruzar al condado de forma ilegal. Durante el 2016, un total de 31,891 personas originarias de México fueron detenidas en su intento de llegar a Estados Unidos. “Sí, en el último año sí registramos un incremento en el total en arrestos a personas

mexicanas y no mexicanas, fueron aproximadamente 38,000 en años anteriores, el promedio de extranjeros era de 3,000”, dijo Eduardo Olmos, Vocero de la Patrulla Fronteriza en San Diego Otra de las cifras que aumentaron fueron las de los decomisos en drogas como la marihuana, la cocaína, metanfetamina y heroína, que registraron aumentos en todas sus denominaciones comparadas con el año anterior. Solo en el sector San Diego se confiscaron 1,231.73 libras de cocaína, 336.56 más que durante el año 2015, otra de las drogas que más incrementaron en el número de libras remitidas a Administración para el

Control de Drogas fue la heroína, que durante el 2016 alcanzó las 3,576.20 onzas en comparación con las 2,763.54 del año anterior. Durante el 2016 también se registraron un total de siete muertes de personas que intentaron cruzar la frontera, 78 rescates , 52 asaltos hacia agentes de la patrulla fronteriza y fueron localizados 2 túneles transfronterizos. “Esto nos dice que hay todavía la amenazas de estas personas que tratan de pasar drogas ilegalmente y también habla del trabajo que está haciendo la Patrulla Fronteriza”, agregó Olmos. Este 2017 la preocupación de las autoridades se ha centrado en el cruce de extranjeros de forma ilegal al país, que en pocos meses ha llegado a la mitad de la cifra total que se generó el año pasado, así como los decomisos de metanfetamina que ya han contabilizado 1,021 libras en menos de 4 meses y 1,271.40 onzas de heroína en el mismo periodo de tiempo. Las autoridades del sector San Diego dijeron continuarán con sus estrategias para frenar el cruce de personas y sustancias ilegales al sur del estado de California, por lo que sus estrategias continuarán más fuerte que nunca en el área marítima y terrestre. “La patrulla fronteriza siempre ha implementado diferentes estrategias para ir y dar combate a las organizaciones criminales transnacionales”, señaló Melissa Peña, coordinadora de programas comunitarios para la Patrulla Fronteriza en San Diego.

y ropa hecha a la medida. Esa era mi meta.” Antes de seguir su meta, Eduardo acompañó a uno de sus amigos con un reclutador de la Naval porque su amigo quería entrar a las fuerzas armadas. El reclutador terminó convenciendo a ambos a que entraran a la agencia para servir a su país. “El reclutador nos dijo que podíamos viajar por todo el mundo y que luego nos iban a ayudar a estudiar la universidad. Es una historia chistosa. Mi amigo y yo hicimos la prueba para entrar a la Fuerza Naval, y él no la pasó y yo sí”, comentó. “Ni siquiera me informe acerca de la Naval porque mi plan era ir a la universidad. Pero a mí me pareció grandioso ver el mundo antes de entrar a la universidad”. Una semana despues de su graduacion de la preparatoria, Eduardo se fue a Chicago para iniciar con su entrenamiento naval. Su primera estación fue en San Diego bajo el buque USS Independence. Luego se trasladó a Japón donde vivió por unos años y posteriormente ingresó al escuadrón VF11 que era parte del portaaviones USS Carl Vinson. Después de cinco años en la agencia de seguridad, Eduardo tuvo que salir por licencia médica, por lo que fue dado de baja con todos los beneficios que se le otorgan a los veteranos. “A mí me encantó ser parte de la Fuerza Naval. El entrenamiento fue fantástico. Te da un sentido de pertenecer a algo. Todos tenemos que trabajar juntos para poder lograr una meta”, comentó. “Mi experiencia naval me ayudó en el mundo de los negocios. Se tiene que trabajar en equipo para poder cumplir con la meta de tener clientes satisfechos. Ser parte de la milicia te enseña muchas cosas; pude utilizar esas bases para mi transición a la vida civil. En todos mis siguientes trabajos pude tener éxito”. Cuando Eduardo se retiró de la Naval, decidió quedarse a vivir en San Diego. Aquí, el trabajó para diferentes empresas e industrias, desde hoteleria hasta construcción. CONTINUA EN LA PAGINA 11

Another major concern they hope to resolve before the new President takes Office is how little protection there is regarding offshore drilling platforms and industrial ships. “We need to protect deep waters specifically against oil and gas exploration and drilling, because there are always spills, constant disasters. Plus, we are trying to reduce the amount of oil and gas being used and replace them with clean energy,” said San Diego WILDCOAST Policy Director Fay Crevoshay. The urgent letter sent to the White House asks President Obama to exercise his authority to, under Section 12(a) of the 1953 Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act, permanently prevent offshore drilling, provide immediate relief to a region they feel is at risk. “Spills are an ever-present danger here and in any other coast; spills are not an accident they could happen at some point, but rather something we can expect, and we need to know that oil is now being found in deeper and deeper places,” Crevoshay added . During the letter signing ceremony, Hawaiian professional surfer and environmentalist Cliff Kapono joined others in stressing how necessary these efforts are to protect marine ecosystems that continue to impact the U.S. coastline, which also provides jobs to over 50,000 people in the marine industry and the Armed Forces.

Piden Acciones a Obama Antes de su Partida POR MARINEE ZAVALA

Con una colecta de firmas, ciudadanos del Condado buscan lograr que el actual presidente de Estados Unidos, Barack Obama, consolide una política de protección al ecosistema de las costas del sur de California, antes de la llegada de Donald Trump a presidencia. Líderes locales de San Diego, miembros de asociaciones civiles en la región e integrantes de la comunidad, se unieron a la lucha por una respuesta por parte de su primer mandatario y enviaron una carta que esperan sea resuelta antes del próximo 20 de enero de 2017. Los miembros del cabildo local se dijeron preocupados ante la falta de acciones del Gobierno Federal que pudieran dar poco impulso a la protección del océano y sus once costas del condado que al momento se encuentran en resguardo. “El proteger nuestras aguas regionales de derrames de petróleo accidentales, y otros impactos negativos generados por la sustracción de combustibles, es crítico para la sustentabilidad ambiental y económica de nuestra región.”, aseguró Barbara Bry, Regidora del Distrito 1 de San Diego Otra de las grandes inquietudes antes de la llegada del nuevo Presidente, aseguran, es la poca protección a los proyectos marítimos, plataformas y barcos industriales año con

año dañan en mayor proporción la fuente de oxígeno más importante en el planeta. “Necesitamos proteger las aguas profundas específicamente contra la exploración y explotación del petróleo y del gas, porque siempre hay derrames, siempre ocurren desastres y además estamos tratando de que se reduzca la cantidad de petróleo y gas que se utiliza, cambiar éstas por energía limpias.”, dijo Fay Crevoshay, miembro del grupo de protección al medio ambiente Wildcoast. La carta con carácter urgente fue enviada al Presidente de la Unión Americana para hacer uso de su autoridad y bajo los tratados de protección establecidos en la sección 12 a de la ley de 1953 para bloquear indefinidamente la perforación de los océanos, dando apoyo inmediato a una región que catalogaron en riesgo. “Siempre hay peligro de derrames aquí y en todas las costas, los derrames no son un accidente que puede llegar a suceder, más bien hay que contar con ellos y hay que saber que el petróleo cada vez se encuentra más y más profundo”, agregó Fay Crevoshay. Durante la firma de esta carta, surfistas profesionales y activistas originarios de Hawaii, como Cliff Kapono, destacaron la necesidad de estos esfuerzos para la protección de los ecosistemas marinos, que hasta el día de hoy, tienen un gran impacto a nivel mundial.

Chargers Abandonan San Diego POR LEÓN BRAVO

Los Chargers ya no son de San Diego. La mañana del jueves, el dueño de la franquicia, Dean Spanos, informó a los empleados administrativos y jugadores que el equipo se mudará a Los Ángeles. "Quisiera que se tratara de una información errónea o falsa, pero desafortunadamente es la realidad”, dijo el ex mariscal de campo de los Chargers, Dan Fouts al enterarse de la noticia. Los Chargers llegaron a San Diego en 1961 para jugar sus partidos en el Estadio Balboa, actualmente el estadio de la preparatoria San Diego High School. Cuando en 1967 se inauguró el actual Qualcomm Stadium, el equipo se mudó a ese recinto ubicado en el corazón de Mission Valley para disputar sus encuentros. A través de los años, la familia Spanos buscó el apoyo de diferentes alcaldes

de la ciudad de San Diego para construir un nuevo estadio, pero eso nunca sucedió. El último intento de los Chargers se dio en noviembre pasado cuando pusieron a consideración de los votantes una propuesta para incrementar los impuestos de ocupación hotelera. El aumento impositivo serviría para financiar un moderno estadio en el centro de la ciudad, pero los electores rechazaron respaldar el plan. A partir de ese momento, Dean Spanos sabía que los días de su franquicia en San Diego estaban contados. Iniciando la próxima temporada, los Chargers jugarán en el StubHub Center de Carson y a partir de 2019 serán inquilinos del nuevo estadio que los Rams están construyendo en el área de Inglewood.

Organizaciones sin fines de lucro locales, incluyendo Planned Parenthood, la Organización Nacional para

las Mujeres (NOW, por sus siglas en inglés), NextGen, ACLU y Run Women Run apoyan el evento. “Run Women Run tiene el honor de participar en la Marcha de Mujeres en San Diego. El estado de California es un lugar donde respetamos y protegemos los derechos de las mujeres, los derechos civiles, la igualdad

de remuneración y la elección reproductiva”, dijo la presidenta de Run Women Run, Michelle Burton. “Aquí tenemos la oportunidad de establecer un ejemplo para otros estados en nuestro país. Es nuestra misión de hacer esto mediante la elección de las mujeres a la función pública para seguir manteniendo estos valores”.

La Marcha de Mujeres en San Diego es un evento inclusivo y diverso, abierto a todos los que están de acuerdo que derechos de mujeres son derechos humanos. “Quiero marchar para que mi hija y yo nos unamos en unidad con el propósito de salvar y preservar los derechos de las mujeres”,

dijo Sabrina Miller, una de las participantes. “Hemos recorrido un largo camino, pero queda mucho por hacer y por lo que luchar. Hacer que nuestras voces sean escuchadas es el primer paso”.

‘La La Land’ Sweeps the Golden Globes

BY DIANA RODRIGUEZ

The 74th Golden Globe Awards caught the world's attention, through displays of fashion, cinema, and politics. And because every single spectator somehow turns into a journalist, reporter, or informant, the first big night of awards season, which took place at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, caused much anticipation. Meryl Streep, at the age of 67, received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for her outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment. Viola Davis, winner of best performance by an actress in a supporting Role, presented the award by sharing some funny, yet with deep meaning experiences between her and Meryl Streep. A special honored Debbie Reynolds and

Carrie Fisher, who Streep quoted, by saying “take your broken heart, make it into art,” immediately becoming a trending topic. Dame Streep, as Viola Davis referred to the actress, took her acceptance speech as an opportunity to emphasize the importance of respecting diversity, receiving the support from her peers and audience. A clear example is the very association that promotes the Golden Globes Awards every January, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), founded in 1943 by Los Angeles-based foreign journalists who wanted a more organized distributing process of cinema news to non-U.S. markets. Nowadays, about 90 members from approximately 55 countries honor the cinema and television achievements in entertainment business, and

stand by Streep’s defense of free expression, as announced by the HFPA President Lorenzo Soria. Mexican actor Diego Luna caused quite a buzz, speaking to the audience in Spanish, demonstrating how proud he is being Mexican. He was able to greet his friend and colleague, Gael Garcia Bernal, who was nominated for Best Actor for his role in Mozart in the Jungle. La La Land now holds the record for most wins by a film in Golden Globes history. With seven nominations and seven awards, La La Land tells the story of Mia (Emma Stone), an aspiring actress, and Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), a dedicated yet bit frustrated jazz musician, who are both struggling with their careers and meet each other in the city of broken dreams. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the delight and sorrow of the process of pursuing your dreams, by truly doing what you love. Since “The Notebook” (2004), Ryan Gosling has been one of the most beloved actors, and his performance in ‘La La Land’ confirms it. In his acceptance speech during the Golden Globes ceremony, Gosling dedicated the award to his wife, actress Eva Mendes and her brother, Juan Carlos Mendes, who recently died from cancer. Emma Stone plays the ideal role in reminding us to follow and achieve our dreams. “This is a film for dreamers. I think that hope and creativity are two of the most important things in the world, and that’s what this movie is about, so to any creative person who’s had a door slammed in their face, either metaphorically or physically, I share this with you”, expressed the 28-year-old actress. La La Land is the fourth movie written by Damien Chazelle, the youngest Best Director winner in Golden Globes history. The film has received 21 nominations in diverse cinematic awards.

Through the years, the Spanos family sought the support of different San Diego mayors to build a new stadium, but a deal was never reached. The Chargers’ last effort came last November when they put Proposition C before the voters, which would increase taxes on hotel occupancy. The tax increase would have funded a stadium in the East Village, but voters did not back the plan. From that moment, Dean Spanos knew that the days of his franchise in San Diego were numbered. Starting next season, the Chargers will play at the StubHub Center in Carson, and starting in 2019, they will be tenants of the new stadium that the Rams are building in Inglewood. Chargers Quarterback Philip Rivers made it clear that the team was departing to Los Angeles. "Goodbye San Diego," wrote the player on his account. The change of venue comes while the team searches for a new head coach. At the end of the regular season, and with a record of five wins and 11 losses, the team fired Mike McCoy and now is in the process of interviewing candidates for the head coach position.

since taking office in 2014 after the resignation of then-Mayor Bob Filner, including increasing the number of City 9-1-1 dispatchers, reaching new labor deals with unions, and expanding hours at libraries and recreation centers throughout the City. Mayor Faulconer also addressed part of his comments in Spanish, something he has done throughout his time in public office. Since his re-election last year, Mayor Faulconer, a Republican, has been rumored to be eyeing a run for California Governor in 2018. During his mayoral campaign, he pledged to fulfill the full four-year term as Mayor if elected. Faulconer has visited with prominent Republicans since his re-election in November to gauge support for a gubernatorial campaign. Former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan has said Faulconer asked for his endorsement in December. In November, Faulconer met with 100 potential donors in Silicon Valley organized by former Republican Congressman Tom Campbell.

Tijuana does not give any monetary aid to this place. The city does donate bags of rice, Pastor Gustavo Banda Aceves said, but it’s not enough for the number of mouths they have to feed on a daily basis. “A lot of them are children, but we take in everyone,” said Banda Aceves. Banda Aceves also said they are in desperate need of food. Chicken, rice, spaghetti, and tuna are among the most needed, he said. Access to water, for example, had also been a problem there up until last month. Banda Aceves said it took the Baja California Public Service Commission, three months to install a water pipeline that will give the building access to running water. In mid-December, Johnston visited the shelter. On that day, the main concern was how to help those stuck in Mexico. “Not everyone is going to be able to cross and we need to do what we can to help those who will stay,” Johnston said. So far, $700 have been donated and Jenkins says it will go directly to buy food across the border, pay for some utility bills at the church and other necessities. “If you want to donate and trust us, we will use the money for good,” Jenkins said. “We were there, and we know what it’s like to have need.”

homelessness, mental health services, and infrastructure issues. “We are here to tell our County Supervisors that, just like they found a way to invest in themselves, they can find ways to get funding to invest in San Diego Families,” added Owens. When it came to the vote on the raises, the only vote against the increase was from newly-elected Supervisor Kristin Gaspar, who said that it was difficult for her to vote for a pay raise when she had been sworn into office just the day before. With this vote, county supervisors will not only get a higher salary for the next four years, but also a higher pensions for the rest of their lives. Supervisor salaries had been pegged at 80% of a Superior Court judge's salary, which are raised every few years according to state law. Under this new formula, county Supervisors changed the formula to be 85% of a judge salary in March, then to 90% in December of this year.

prosecution in San Diego of the outlaw motorcycle gang Hell’s Angels on extortion and drug trafficking charges. She also prosecuted cases against defense items, Mexican cartels, and other criminal enterprises. Laura Duffy leaves her position just days before Donald Trump’s inauguration. The President is charged with appointing, with Senate confirmation, the U.S. Attorneys for all 93 Districts in the U.S. “I have every confidence that Alana will continue our strong relationships with local and federal law enforcement officials and community leaders and devote her full attention and considerable talent to federal prosecutions that will safeguard our community,” added Duffy. Under the Vacancies Reform Act (VRA), the first assistant U.S. Attorney – Robinson’s former position – is temporarily promoted when the U.S. Attorney (which was Duffy) leaves office. Alana’s appointment to this position will be for a period of up to 300 days, until the new President appoints and the Senate confirms a new U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of California.

2016 is Tijuana’s Deadliest Year BY MARIO A. CORTEZ

Tijuana saw its previous record murder rate, set in 2008, toppled in 2016. The State of Baja California’s Attorney General reported 910 homicides within Tijuana’s city boundaries, surpassing 2008’s 844

reported murder cases, and easily going over 2015’s 652 murder cases. December saw the more murders than any other month in 2016, with 112 in total. This October, Tijuana recorded its 653rd murder, officially marking 2016 as a deadlier year for the city than

2015. The cause for the uptick in last year’s murder rate, 46 per 100,000 people, is attributed to many factors, most notably a power struggle between the upcoming Jalisco Nueva Generacion Cartel and the Sinaloa Cartel for control of

the city’s trafficking routes. These events come at a time in which Tijuana is living through a renaissance brought on by a thriving culinary scene, a boom in craft brewing, reclaiming of public spaces, and through an uptick in the manufacturing industry. Last week, the New York Times named Tijuana in its top 10 cities to visit in 2017,

citing the city’s dining culture, which has been in a constant rise since 2010, as a major attraction. But despite the distinction, local authorities worry that the constant negative headlines might mitigate the city’s newfound prestige. According to David Shirk of USD’s Justice in Mexico initiative, leaders need to make a change from focusing

on the drug war to improving the economy. "The key challenge for Tijuana's authorities and city leaders is that they've spent a great deal of effort in trying to establish Tijuana as a safe and vibrant city," said Shirk in an interview with KPBS. "It's very disheartening to see those efforts sullied by a resurgence of this violence."

T

ras la derrota que sufrieron en el primer partido de la temporada, los Xolos buscarán recomponer el camino cuando reciban al equipo de Puebla. La semana pasada, el cuadro fronterizo cayó 2-0 en Morelia en lo que fue su presentación dentro del Torneo Clausura 2017. El viernes, en el Estadio Caliente, los Xolos tratarán de dar su primer mordida de la campaña. "Tenemos que trabajar mucho, este equipo puede dar más, esperemos ganar en nuestra casa y sacar los tres puntos en disputa" , comentó Juan Carlos Valenzuela, defensa central del cuadro canino. El capitán de la jauría canina consideró que el tropiezo ante Monarcas no será la constante del equipo en el torneo que recién inicia. "Esto apenas comienza, hay cosas que corregir pero estoy seguro que este equipo va a volver a ganar y sumar puntos", afirmó. El zaguero confió en que los aficionados le brindarán un gran recibimiento al equipo en lo que será el primer partido del año en su estadio. "La gente siempre apoya al equipo, siempre lo llena, siempre esta con nosotros. Le pido a la gente que siga

confiando en nosotros y que nos sigan exigiendo porque nosotros nos vamos a entregar con todo dentro de la cancha”, dijo Valenzuela. La aduana del Estadio Caliente ha sido una muy complicada para el equipo de Puebla, que en cinco visitas solo ha podido sacar un triunfo y un empate. Tijuana y el equipo de la Franja han sostenido 12 confrontaciones en total y los Xolos han inclinado la balanza a su favor con seis triunfos y tres empates a cambio de tres derrotas.

Es oficial, el mundial del 2026 contará con 48 selecciones, 16 países adicionales fueron aprobados por el consejo del organismo por unanimidad. Bajo el formato, habrá 16 grupos de tres equipos en donde los dos primeros pasan a dieciseisavos de final. Con 80 partidos, en lugar de 64, FIFA espera un repunte de mil millones de dólares adicionales por contratos de emisiones y patrocinios, además del dinero que se genere en entradas a los estadios. En cuanto a los puestos extras que conseguirán cada continente la UEFA quiere 16 equipos europeos en la máxima competencia, CONCACAF quiere 6 lugares y uno que ira a un repechaje además de poder competir por la sede, algo que no se da en Norteamérica desde Estados Unidos 1994. En la reunión de esta semana, FIFA dijo que podría tomar medidas contra los famosos arreglos de partidos introduciendo rondas de penales en partidos en fase de grupos que terminen en empate.

Los tropiezos los sufrió ante el Wolfsburgo, en partido correspondiente a la Champions League, y contra el Atlético de Madrid en duelo de la liga española. En apenas un año como entrenador, "Zizou" ya le entregó al Real Madrid el título de Champions League, el de la liga española y el del Mundial de Clubes. Con este palmarés es difícil entender la razón por la que algunos todavía se niegan a darle a Zidane el crédito que se merece como estratega. "Creo que tiene que ver con su personalidad, Zizou es una persona muy humilde al que no le gusta ponerse por arriba de los jugadores o del equipo”, dijo en una entrevista reciente el presidente del Real Madrid, Florentino Pérez. La realidad de las cosas es que Zidane evita a toda costa atraer la luz de los reflectores en una actitud muy distinta a la que en su momento tomó José Mourinho cuando estuvo al frente del Real Madrid.

A un año de haber tomado la dirección técnica del Real Madrid, el francés ha acumulado títulos e impuesto récords, pero aun así hay quienes rehúsan a reconocerlo como un gran entrenador

Por motivos difíciles de comprender, hay gente que todavía no considera a Zinedine Zidane un gran entrenador. Desde su llegada a la dirección técnica del Real Madrid, el francés no ha hecho más que establecer récords

y ganar todos los torneos que le ha tocado dirigir. Bajo la batuta de Zidane, el cuadro merengue ha hilvanado la mejor racha de su historia al sumar 39 partidos sin conocer la derrota en todas las competiciones en las que participa. El 9 de enero de 2016, el estratega

galo llegó al banquillo del Real Madrid en sustitución de Rafael Benítez y en su debut ganó contundentemente por 5-0 al Deportivo la Coruña. Desde entonces, Zidane ha dirigido 55 partidos al conjunto blanco para sumar un total de 42 triunfos,11 empates y apenas dos derrotas.

¿Trabajarías para una empresa que te debe tres meses de sueldo y que al pagarte te engaña dándote cheques sin fondos? ¿Trabajarías para una empresa que te prohíbe hacer un contrato con otras compañías que te ofrecen mejor salario y mayores prestaciones? ¿Trabajarías para un empresa que cuarta tus derechos de asociación para pelear por tus derechos laborales? Creo que nadie de nosotros estaríamos dispuestos a enfrentar esas condiciones de trabajo en ningún lugar, pero eso es exactamente lo que sucede con los equipos de la Liga MX. El futbol mexicano se ha convertido en una especie de feudo en el que los dueños de las franquicias disponen de sus trabajadores como si fueran siervos. El caso de Jaguares de Chiapas es increíble en esta época en donde las leyes y derechos laborales se han modernizado en todo el mundo. Varias veces, la directiva del cuadro chiapaneco ha caído en incumplimiento de pago a sus jugadores, a veces hasta por tres meses. Cuando los futbolistas de Jaguares han tratado de levantar su voz para exigir lo que les corresponde, el dueño del equipo, Carlos López Chargoy, los amenaza y los extorsiona. Al más puro estilo del latifundismo mexicano, Chargoy le hace ver a sus jugadores que si se quejan públicamente de su situación, él hará todo lo posible para destruir su carrera profesional. Ante la actitud tirana de su jefe, los integrantes de Jaguares optan por bajar la cabeza y aceptar las vejaciones de las que son objeto. La semana pasada, Rafael Márquez, zaguero mexicano referente histórico del FC Barcelona, reveló que está por conformar el primer sindicato de futbolistas mexicanos. Márquez quiere que casos como el de Jaguares no se presenten nunca más en la Liga MX, pero el capitán de la selección mexicana y actual jugador del Atlas se ha encontrado con un problema inusitado. La resistencia para la creación del sindicato no proviene de los dueños de los equipos, sino que

Trevor Hoffman Rumbo a la Inmortalidad El legendario cerrador de los Padres está cerca de ingresar al Salón de la Fama que el 18 de enero anunciará a sus nuevos miembros POR LEÓN BRAVO

Trevor Hoffman, el sensacional relevista que con los Padres de San Diego se convirtió en uno de los mejores cerradores de la historia, está cerca de entrar al Salón de la Fama. El pitcher que por 16 temporadas vistió la franela de la escuadra sandieguina salvó 601 partidos en su carrera y de esa manera logró escribir su nombre con letras de oro en los expedientes de las Grandes Ligas. Hoffman inició su trayectoria profesional en la temporada 1993 apareciendo en dos partidos para los Marlins de Florida antes de ser transferido a los Padres. Con el equipo de San Diego, Hoffman se

convirtió en icono de la franquicia, al transformarse en uno de los mejores cerradores en los anales del béisbol profesional. A diferencia de la mayoría de los taponeros que se apoyan en lanzamientos de poder y velocidad para cumplir su misión, Hoffman respaldaba sus actuaciones con un cambio de velocidad que desquiciaba a los bateadores enemigos. En total, Hoffman ponchó a 1,133 enemigos en las 1,089 entradas que trabajó durante sus 18 años en las Grandes Ligas. Tras jugar para los Padres, Hoffman estuvo dos temporadas con los Cerveceros de Milwaukee y al finalizar la campaña 2010 se retiró definitivamente de los montículos. CONTINUA EN LA PAGINA 11

PROFILE

CONTINUED FROM P.1

Before he could pursue his business goal, Barreto accompanied one of his friends to a U.S. Navy recruiter because his friend wanted to join the Navy. In the end, the recruiter convinced both of them to join the service. The recruiter told the two young men that, in the Navy, they could see the world and later they could get help to go to college. “It’s a funny story because my friend and I went to do the entrance exams and I passed, but he didn’t,” Barreto recalls. “I didn’t even do any research about joining the military because my plan was to go to college, but it was a wonderful idea to go and see the world before going to college.” The week after Barreto finished high school, he travelled to Chicago to begin basic training. Barreto was first stationed in San Diego with the USS Independence, and later travelled to Japan, where he lived for a few years before joined the VF11 Squadron that was attached to the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson. After five years in the Navy, Barreto was released on a medical discharge with full benefits and honorable discharge. “I loved the military,” Barreto declared. “Boot camp was fantastic; it gives you a sense of belonging in a group. We all had to work together towards a goal. That experience helped me in the business world,” Barreto says. After being discharged from the Navy, Barreto decided to remain in San Diego. He worked for different companies and industries, from hospitality to construction. Barreto work for Pacific Coast Auto Detail Center, Inc. started with administrative work in the office, including the development of a client list, and the creation of social media accounts. “I do everything in the office”, he said. “And my business partner does everything in the warehouse.” Barreto now has 12 years of experience at his company that focuses on car detailing and repair needs. “The transition of wanting a men’s clothing line to now managing a detailing company is a big shift,” Barreto said. “Today, I see everyday vehicles like Toyotas and Kias, but I also see beautiful cars like Ferraris and Lamborghinis valued at half a million dollars,” he added. And Barreto’s business keeps on growing. “Every year our business grows because our key to success is hard work. A business is not just about working from 9 to 5, you really need to have a desire to be successful to help build something out of nothing,” Barreto adds. “When I leave the office, I continue to answer emails and do social media. There was a time I was working 7 days a week.” The company’s first location was on 12th and G Street in downtown San Diego. After changing locations twice, they have now been at their current location at Market and 27th Street since 2013. Today, one of Barreto’s goals is to add a second location to be able to serve more clients. “The more services you can offer, the better; we even pick up customers’ cars,” he said. “We also have added services that the clientele asks for and, in 2017, we want to offer more window tinting and more paint coating.” For now, Barreto will continue growing his business one happy car owner at a time.

San Diego dropped its conservation target to zero as soon as the statewide conservation mandate was relaxed last year. “We need to build new, sustainable systems of living in San Diego and a proactive, forward-thinking water conservation ethic into our culture. Transitioning to drought-tolerant landscaping is a great way to do this and doesn’t only mean gravel and cactus,” O’Malley added. “By upgrading our homes and public spaces with native species and drought-tolerant landscapes, we bring unique beauty and character to San Diego while saving water and money. San Diego’s environment offers an endless palette of colorful, vibrant, unique plants that thrive on nothing but rainwater.”

One of the key concerns thus far in 2017 has been people crossing illegally into the U.S. Although we are only months into the fiscal year, numbers have already reached half of what they were the previous year. In the past four months, 1,021 pounds of methamphetamines and 1,271.4 ounces of heroin have also been seized. San Diego Sector Border Patrol said they will continue their strategies to curb the illegal crossing of persons and substances into Southern California, with stronger operations than ever on both land and sea. “Border Patrol has always implemented different strategies to go out and combat transnational criminal organizations,” stated Melissa Peña, San Diego Border Patrol Community Programs Coordinator.

La lucha de la comunidad derivó en que autoridades accedieran a mantener el parque que hoy en día es un ícono del movimiento chicano en Estados Unidos. “El recibir este nombramiento ayudará a preservar este sitio para generaciones por venir y para validar aún más la lucha de nuestras comunidades por la igualdad y la justicia social”, comentó el regidor David Álvarez en un mensaje publicado en su cuenta de Facebook. El integrante de cabildo dio mérito a los activistas del Comité Directivo del Parque Chicano, como Tommie Camarillo y Josie Talamantez quienes impulsaron este esfuerzo desde el inicio. El programa de Sitios Históricos Nacionales promueve la preservación de espacios con valor histórico y que reflejan la diversidad de sus comunidades. Aunado a la designación al parque sandieguino, la agencia federal hizo lo

pudieran reunirse y personas pudieran celebrar su herencia cultural”, señaló el congresista Juan Vargas, quien impulsó el nombramiento desde la capital del país. El Parque Chicano fue fundado hace 46 años cuando un grupo de residentes se apropió del espacio en un esfuerzo por evitar que

of our students and our District, and the best interest of the community,” Solis added. The first of the lawsuits was filed in 2012 by San Diegans for Open Government, known as SanDOG, a non-profit that has sued several local public agencies in cases that included misuse of public funds, as well as the tax funding formula for the San Diego Convention Center that was untimely ruled to be illegal. SanDOG sued Gilbane, SGI, and HAR Construction to invalidate a total of over $40 million in contracts it claimed were tainted by the “pay-to-play” scheme. In 2014, the District filed its lawsuit to invalidate the contracts. SanDOG’s case was later merging into the District’s case, and SanDOG continued as a party to the case on behalf of taxpayers. “SanDOG is pleased that the net amount that will be returned to taxpayers is the same if not more than what they'd get back if we had to litigate several more years,” said SanDOG attorney Cory Briggs. “Taxpayers should be very pleased with the District's efforts in joining SanDOG to right many serious wrongs by past board

members and administrators,” Briggs concluded. In the Gilbane settlement reached this week, the District agreed to reimburse SanDOG’s legal fees in the amount of $425,000 from the proceeds of the settlement. The history of legal cases trace back to 2011 when the first allegations of corruption surfaced. In 2011, HAR Construction sued the District claiming its contracts to build schools were cancelled because the company and its principal, Hector Romero, refused to donate campaign funds to a school board member, Pearl Quiñones. HAR’s lawsuit led the District Attorney to investigate and, in 2012, 15 people were indicted on various charges involving illegal gifts to officials. In 2014, all the indicted defendants plead guilty to a variety of charges. The most serious penalties went to then-Board member Greg Sandoval and then-Superintendent Jesus Gandara. Sandoval was sentenced to six months in jail, but served 45 days in custody and 135 days of home detention. Gandara was sentenced to seven months in jail, but served only 60 days in custody and remained on

house arrest for the remainder, wearing an electronic bracelet and reported to his probation officer twice a week. After nearly five years of litigation, the District reached a settlement with HAR and Romero in June 2016 where the District agreed to pay a $7.35 million settlement. The settlements this week resolve the remaining cases stemming from the same set of contracts, and recovered enough money to make the District whole in the Romero case. Its estimated the District also spent approximately $2 million in its own legal fees in the cases. “It’s a good thing to move forward,” board President Solis added. “I hope this shows this Board does its work in public and we’re going to continue to do that with future contracts. In 2014, all five board seats were up for election. All of the current board members were first elected that year after the resignation and defeat of board members accused in the corruption scandal. Board members Kevin Pike and Nicholas Segura were then re-elected in 2016.

“Cuando estaba trabajando en construcción me gustaba poder ver el resultado final de los proyectos”, dijo. “Y cuando estaba a punto de terminar uno de esos proyectos fue cuando tuve la oportunidad de empezar a trabajar con R.J. en la empresa de detallado”. Su trabajo para Pacific Coast Auto Detail Center, Inc. inició en la oficina, con la administración de documentos incluyendo la creación de una lista de clientes, e incluso la creación de cuentas en redes sociales. “Yo hago todo en la oficina”, dijo. “Y mi socio hace todo en la bodega”. Barreto ahora cuenta con 12 años de experiencia dentro de esta empresa que se dedica al detallado y reparación de vehículos. “La transición de tener una línea de ropa a una empresa de detallado sigue siendo mi enfoque en los negocios. Me toca ver como Toyotas y Kias hasta automóviles hermosos como Ferraris o Lamborghinis valorados en medio millón de dólares”, comentó. “Todo lo que aprendí de vehículos, lo aprendí de mi socio”. “Cada año estamos creciendo. Nuestra clave del éxito es el trabajo duro. Un negocio no se trata de trabajar de 9 a.m. a 5 p.m., sino de entregar toda nuestra pasión para que tenga éxito”, comentó. “Cuando salgo de la oficina sigo contestando correos. Hubo un tiempo en que no descansaba ni un sólo día para poder tener el negocio funcionando”. La primera ubicación del negocio fue entre las calles 12 y G en el Centro de San Diego, pero después de varios cambios, se establecieron en su dirección actual en las calles Market y 27 desde el 2013. Una de las próximas metas de la empresa es añadir un segundo centro para poder servir a más clientes. “Entre más servicios se pueda ofrecer mejor. Nadie tiene el tiempo de estar atendiendo a su carro todo el dia. Nosotros hasta vamos a recoger su carro hasta donde esté”, comentó Barreto. “Nosotros también hemos agregado servicios que nuestros clientes nos piden. Cada año añadimos más. Este 2017 queremos ofrecer más servicios de polarizado de ventanas y mas reparaciones de pinturas”.

Buscan Apoyo Para Haitianos al Sur de la Frontera PHOTO BY ANA P. CEBALLOS

PERFIL

POR ANA P. CEBALLOS

Durante un recorrido a través de nueve fronteras, y que puede durar meses, el inmigrante haitiano ha sido víctima de robo y acoso. Unos han cruzado ríos cargando a recién nacidos sobre sus cabezas, mientras las corrientes de agua alcanzaban a la altura del cuello. Todo este esfuerzo para alcanzar una meta: los Estados Unidos. En el 2016, más de 12,000 haitianos llegaron a la ciudad fronteriza de Tijuana después de haber huido de Haití, un país debilitado por la pobreza. Mientras los migrantes llegaban a Tijuana, miles de haitianos fueron dados de alta por agentes de inmigración estadounidenses y al pisar la ciudad de San Diego un promedio de 33 haitianos llegaron a una pequeña iglesia en Normal Heights buscando asilo cada dia. Esto aconteció por cuatro meses, entre Junio y Septiembre del 2016. “Algunas noches llegaban 12 personas, pero otras noches eran 72 personas,” Bill Jenkins, el pastor de Christ Ministry Center en San Diego, dice. “Nos convertimos en un pequeño campo de refugiados. Antes la gente no sabía a donde ir y se quedaba en la calle.” Durante estos cuatro meses, el suelo de la pequeña iglesia estaba cubierto de colchones inflables, cobijas, y personas durmiendo. También se volvió algo común que la única regadera en el edificio estuviera ocupada día y noche, Jenkins recuerda. En Septiembre las cosas cambiaron. La adminis-

tración de Obama anunció que la política de inmigración dirigida hacia los haitianos sería más restringida. Al mismo tiempo, la ciudad de San Diego le prohibió a la iglesia darle asilo a más de seis personas, el argumento siendo que las leyes locales de zonificación no permitían a más gente. Con estos cambios, el número de inmigrantes haitianos fue bajando poco a poco y cuando era mucha demanda, prioridad se le fue dando a mujeres y niños. En este último mes, han nacido 10 bebés en la iglesia. Pronto podrían ser 11, pues actualmente, Sandy Berialove Baptiste, una mujer embarazada, duerme en la iglesia con otras cuatro mujeres y podría dar a luz en los siguiente meses si es que no consigue unificarse con su familia. Pero aunque la iglesia en San Diego ya no reciba tanta gente, los albergues en Tijuana siguen lidiando con miles de haitianos que siguen esperando entrar a los Estados Unidos. En muchos de estos lugares no hay camas,

explosivas, tomar actitudes de encono y protagonizar desplantes excéntricos. A Zidane, nada de eso le va. "Desde que era jugador, Zizou siempre se mostró como una persona muy centrada, alguien al que nunca se le subió a la cabeza la fama, él siempre ha sido así”, dijo Pérez. Su personalidad reservada, y aveces hasta retraída, le está costando a Zidane la etiqueta de ser considerado un gran entrenador a pesar de los títulos y récords que lo respaldan.

En la historia de las Grandes Ligas, solamente Mariano Rivera, el relevista panameño de los Yankees de Nueva York, acumuló más salvamentos que Hoffman al haber sumado 652 rescates en su ilustre carrera. El 18 de enero se harán públicos los resultados de la votación que los periodistas especializados hacen para elegir a los nuevos integrantes del Salón de la Fama. Será en esa fecha cuando se conozca si Hoffman, quien en la actualidad forma parte de la directiva de los Padres, logró entrar al recinto de los inmortales de Cooperstown.

mariscal de campo de los Chargers, Philip Rivers, dejó muy en claro la partida del equipo hacia Los Ángeles "Adiós San Diego”, escribió el jugador en su cuenta de redes sociales. El cambio de sede da en medio de la búsqueda que la franquicia está haciendo para encontrar un nuevo entrenador en jefe. Al concluir la temporada regular con marca de cinco triunfos y 11 derrotas, el equipo dejó ir a Mike McCoy y ahora se encuentra en el proceso de entrevistar candidatos para cubrir el puesto.

colchones, cobijas o comida. El simple hecho de no tener la infraestructura necesaria o el espacio disponible limita a los voluntarios tratando de dar asilo a los inmigrantes. Pero organizaciones en San Diego, incluyendo a Christ Ministry Center están ayudando. El 5 de enero anunció la iglesia un acuerdo de ayuda transfronteriza con la Iglesia Embajadores de Jesús en Tijuana, que es uno de los lugares con más gente. Se aproxima que entre 300 y 400 haitianos se alojan en esta iglesia cada dia. El acuerdo fue inspirado por un señor de Santa Cruz, Paul Johnston, que quiso ayudar a la iglesia Tijuanense después de haberla visitado a mediados de diciembre. El acto de bondad también coincide con que la iglesia de San Diego conoce las dificultades por las que la Iglesia Embajadores de Jesús en Tijuana padece. Pues poco a poco se fue corriendo la voz de su existencia y los haitianos fueron llegando a pie, en autobús, o en taxi. Dentro de esta iglesia, camas hechas con ladrillos y

hacer lo que tanto le apasiona en el mes de abril en un torneo en Alemania. Será su primera aparición oficial desde que dio positivo a la sustancia meldonium el año pasado en el abierto de Australia y buscará su cuarto título en Stuttgart, la tenista rusa inicialmente la castigaron por dos años, pero apeló y le redujeron el castigo después de mencionar que la sustancia la usó durante mucho tiempo por razones médicas y desconocía su prohibición. Sharapova no ha disputado ningún partido de competición desde los cuartos de final que perdió en Melbourne ante la estadounidense Serena Williams, pero se beneficiará de una invitación para el torneo alemán. Su vuelta a las pistas le podría permitir participar en Masters de importancia como Roland Garros que ya ha conquistado en diferentes ocasiones.

CLEMSON REY DE LA NCAA En un final como de película, Clemson con un marcador final de 35-31 sobre Alabama se corono dentro del futbol americano colegial. Un pase de anotación de Watson de dos yardas a Renfrow cuando faltaban dos segundos para el final del encuentro fueron suficientes para lograr el campeonato que no conseguían desde 1981. Watson completó 36 de 56 envíos para 420 yardas y tres anotaciones en su último

tablas cubren un piso que normalmente es usado para gente que va a misa. Aquellos que necesitan agua, comida, cobijas o ropa dependen de la bondad de extraños y donaciones. El pastor Gustavo Banda Aceves dice que la ciudad de Tijuana no les da dinero, pero si dona costales de arroz de vez en cuando. “Muchas de la gente que se queda aquí son niños,” Banda Aceves dice. Banda Aceves dice que por el momento lo más urgente es la comida, sobre todo el pollo, arroz, pasta y el atún. El acceso al agua, por ejemplo, también ha sido una dificultad. Banda Aceves dice que la Comisión Estatal de Servicios Publicos en Tijuana tardó tres meses en poder instalar un servicio de agua con pipas. Una de las razones por las que Johnston y Jenkins están tratando de promover el nuevo acuerdo transfronterizo con esta iglesia es porque todavía hay mucha incertidumbre sobre el futuro de los haitianos que estan en Mexico por el momento. “No todos van a poder cruzar y tenemos que ver cómo ayudar a las personas que tienen que quedarse en México,” mencionó Johnston. Por lo pronto, se han recaudado 700 dólares y Jenkins dice que ese dinero se ira directo a comprar comida para los haitianos, pagar ciertas utilidades en la iglesia y otras necesidades. “Si alguien quiere donar y confían en nosotros, prometemos usar el dinero para el bien,” Jenkins mencionó. “Nosotros estuvimos en su lugar el año pasado y entendemos que es la necesidad.”

partido universitario. Clemson perdía por 14-0 pero se recuperó y cortó una racha de 26 victorias consecutivas además de privar a los de Alabama de conseguir 5 campeonatos en 8 años. De esta forma Clemson se coloca de nuevo en los primeros planos de este deporte gracias a la gran actuación de los Tigers y de su entrenador Dabo Swinney hoy figura del equipo naranja.

CR7 ES EL MEJOR Por primera vez se llevó a cabo los premios The Best, que otorga la FIFA al mejor jugador del mundo. El gran ganador fue el portugués Cristiano Ronaldo que en el 2016 consiguió la Champions League, la Supercopa de Europa, y el Mundial de Clubes con el Real Madrid, además de la Eurocopa con su Selección. Cuarto galardón para el lusitano superando al argentino Lionel Messi y al francés Antoine Griezmann. De igual forma se premió a la mejor jugadora del mundo y en este caso se le otorgó a la estadounidense Carli Lloyd, el mejor entrenador fue Claudio Ranieri, técnico del sorprendente Leicester City. El once ideal quedó conformado de la siguiente manera: Manuel Neuer, Dani Alves, Gerard Piqué, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Luka Modri, Andrés Iniesta,Toni Kroos, Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez y Cristiano Ronaldo. El evento de gala también recordó al Chapecoense, club que sufrió un accidente aéreo cuando se dirigían a jugar la final de la Copa Sudamericana.

supervisión de investigaciones contra organizaciones dedicadas al narcotráfico. Ha laborado en una gran cantidad de casos que incluyen delitos federales tan serios como el lavado de dinero, el tráfico de armas de fuego, homicidios involuntarios, robo a bancos, contrabando de extranjeros y otros crímenes de inmigración comunes en esta frontera. En un lapso de cuatro años, Robinson fue también abogada titular del programa de Lucha contra Drogas y Delincuencia Organizada (OCDETF, por sus siglas en ingles) donde destacó por su labor de investigación y enjuiciamiento a la banda de motociclistas Hells Angels, quienes fueron acusados por crímenes de extorsión y tráfico de drogas en San Diego. Asimismo, realizó trabajos en contra de artículos de defensa, persecución de carteles mexicanos y otros tipos de organizaciones criminales. Duffy dejó su puesto a escasos días de la toma de protesta del próximo presidente de los Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, encargado junto al Senado de designar a los 93 abogados de los distritos judiciales en el país. “Tengo toda la confianza de que Alana continuará nuestras sólidas relaciones con los funcionarios locales y federales, encargados de hacer cumplir la ley junto a sus líderes comunitarios, donde dedicará toda su atención y considerable talento a los juicios federales que protegerán a nuestra comunidad”, agregó Duffy. De acuerdo con la Ley de Reforma de Vacantes (VRA, por sus siglas en inglés), en Estados Unidos, el primer asistente, cargo que ocupaba Robinson, es designado como interino, esto cuando el fiscal federal, puesto que desempeñaba Duffy, deja el cargo, por lo que Alana Robinson ha sido nombrada por un período de 300 días, hasta otro posible nombramiento por parte del nuevo Presidente, quien apoyado por el Senado, cambie al titular de la Fiscalía Federal en el Distrito Sur de California.

OPINION

CONTINUACION DE P.8 viene de los propios futbolistas. Márquez dijo que existe un temor muy grande de parte de sus colegas de unirse para formar el sindicato. El internacional mexicano admitió que sus compañeros de profesión tienen miedo de ser vetados de por vida si se unen a su movimiento. La sumisión de los futbolistas mexicanos es la parte del problema que a mí más me preocupa. No es posible que que los jugadores rechazan la gran oportunidad histórica que Márquez les está ofreciendo encabezar. El jugador mexicano prefiere la sumisión, prefiere bajar la cabeza, prefiere quedarse callado, antes de enfrentar con valor y coraje a sus lugartenientes. Los futbolistas mexicanos han crecido bajo un sistema impositivo que les prohíbe firmar un contrato con el equipo que ellos quieran y en el que no tienen las herramientas legales para exigir se les paguen sus sueldos atrasados. Los jugadores mexicanos no tienen el valor de iniciar un movimiento revolucionario que destruya el sistema que los oprime y los explota. Mientras el futbolista mexicano siga siendo dócil, manejable y obediente, los señores feudales seguirán abusando de ellos.
