WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate on Thursday passed an immigration overhaul that would give millions of illegal immigrants a chance to become American citizens, as backers braced for a bruising battle with the House of Representatives.

The Senate voted 62-36 for the bipartisan bill that couples border security and enforcement with a guest worker program and a plan that would put most of the 11 million to 12 million illegal immigrants on a path to U.S. citizenship.

It is the most sweeping immigration bill in two decades and has to be merged with a vastly different House bill that calls for tough border security and enforcement measures.
President George W. Bush has said he supports a comprehensive approach to immigration reform along the lines passed by the Senate.

But it is unclear lawmakers will be able to work out the differences before the November congressional elections. Republican opponents said they would try to rewrite the bill.

Congratulations to Lourdes Santiago, Senior Prosecutor for the City of Toledo on her appointment to Toledo City Council on Tuesday, May 23, 2006.

Mrs. Santiago becomes the first Latina of Puerto Rican descent to hold office in Toledo. She joins Councilwoman Taylor Balderas who is awaiting the results of a May primary recount where five votes in her district separate her from her opponent.

Jeanne Marie Stophlet and her friends are organizing every month a lunch for Senior citizens in the Over-the-Rhine community center on Race St., to help them to connect with others, to meet old friends and to make new ones. Each time there is a different theme for the lunch, and this time it was the Latino theme. It was a great opportunity to take some pictures with a sombrero, listen to hot Latin rhythms, and learn some Merengue.

Also present was Cecil Thomas, member of Cincinnati's City Council.

This past Sunday, May 21, Bienestar, a service of Santa Maria Community Services, organized a Hispanic Health Fair at the Price Hills Community Center. Many Hispanics were able to take advantage of this event to check on the health of their children, as well as of themselves. The health checks included dental, vision, blood pressure, and others. Many of the local community organizations, such as Red Cross, were there to assist and educate the attendees on health issues.

Unfortunately, it seems like the recent immigration raids created a fear of in community, and many of the Hispanics stayed away, resulting in less visitors than in previous years.

Our thanks go to all the volunteers, especially the medical staff, who offered their free time to help the Hispanic community!

Maria Gabriela Medina, originally from Panama, became the "Miss A World A'Fair 2006".

Resized Image

Maria Gabriela came to the U.S. from Panama in 1989 at the age of 2. In her first years in the U.S. she lived in a community of graduate students where everybody was exposed to many different cultures and languages. Despite the fact that most of her studies have been in the English language, she has learned and conserved the Spanish language, the Panamanian culture, and the Hispanic traditions. She has traveled back to Panama to visit her family several times in recent years.

Dayton's "World A'Fair" festival is a celebration of diversity that showcases the food, dancing, music, costumes, and cultural exhibits representing the ethnic backgrounds and cultures of Dayton and the greater Miami Valley.

Local Salsero extraordinaire, Malik Spencer, will be performing June 2 and 3, 2006 in a show at the Aronoff Center:

This dance with a cast of 26 people, will be a journey into the culture in Pre-Inquisition Spain where the Hebrew, Moorish (Arabic), Gypsy and Christian Spanish communities interacted. Using four magnificent choral and orchestral, musical gems by Bonia Shur, the dancers will exalt the quiet beauty within these cultures during times of tolerance during the 11th to 14th centuries and passionately celebrate the hope that this will happen again.

The capes and tabards worn by the dancers will become medieval cave temples, tree roots, wedding canopies, clouds and stars and symbols of the three religions, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity.

Nestle USA, the world's largest food company, sponsors local elementary schools through their Adopt a School program and the local Cincinnati Sales Office sponsors Taylor Elementary for 2005-2006. On May 11, Nestle was sponsoring a Multicultural Ice Cream Social at the school where the students learned about Hispanic culture by reading books about Spain and Mexico, by participating in art contests, by eating Mexican food and by playing maracas along with "Vivo Flamenco" who educated an audience of 500 students and parents about Flamenco dance and music.

During the week the school librarian was reading "Dona Flor: a Tall Tale About a Giant Woman with a Great Big Heart" to the students and at the Ice Cream Social the kids were decorating placemats with their favorite scenes from the book and competed for door prizes which were children books about Hispanic life.

It was great to see how students were embracing this Latino experience, becoming more appreciative of other cultures.

A traveling exhibit that highlights the work of Mexican muralist painter Diego Rivera will soon be on display at Raymond Walters College. The exhibit, titled “Mexico, Past and Present,” will be shown from June 1-15 in the college’s library, Muntz Hall, 9555 Plainfield Road, Blue Ash. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

The exhibit is being hosted by RWC’s Foreign Language Department in conjunction with the Ohio State University’s Center for Latin American Studies. Hours for viewing are 7:30am-8pm Mondays through Thursdays and noon-4 pm on Fridays.

Diego Rivera (1886-1957), is considered one of the greatest artists in the 20th Century. Born in Guanajuato Mexico, in 1892 he moved to Mexico City with his family and later studied in the San Carlos Academy and in the carving workshop of artist José Guadalupe Posada, whose influence is seen in Rivera’s works. He also spent more than 14 years in Europe, much of it in Paris studying the works of classic masters such as Cezanne and Matisse.
