should be fun. And this exhibition is certainly fun." In addition to Roberts' photographs, there is a multimedia power point program that's on a viewable loop. This program gives visitors an opportunity for a closer look at the wide range of entrants in the Houston Art Car Parade. There are also a couple of dozen miniature art cars that were created by local school children under the direction of their art teachers. Children from three different campuses participated in the art show. Students from Memorial High School's Stroman campus, as well as from both Vickers and Chandler Elementary Schools made miniature cars. The school program was sponsored by the Manhattan Art Program (MAP). "Victoria is one of the few school districts chosen nationally for participation in MAP ," said Trafton. "We are very fortunate to be selected for this program that offers artistic outlets to school children." Locally, the program was coordinated by Candace Coyle, Torres Elementary School teacher. "Twenty five students at each campus were chosen to participate in the Art Car exhibit," said Coyle. "We told the kids about the exhibit. Then we showed them slides of some of the vehicles that had participated in the parade. Then we turned them loose to create their own miniature versions of an art car." Children at Vickers and Chandler were given a miniature Lamborghini that was purchased at the dollar store. In addition, they were given a wide range of media to decorate their cars. Stroman

Victoria Independent School District (VISD) has expanded its Career and Technical Education programs (CTE) to give students unlimited educational opportunities starting in the fall semester of 2010. Those educational opportunities cover a wide range of disciplines.

The latest exhibit to grace the walls of the Nave Museum is entitled Art Car Photographs and will be open to the public through July 3. The exhibit consists of 42 photographs by Maurice Roberts. Roberts is the official photographer for the annual Art Car Parade in Houston. "The Art Car Photographs, along with the Art Car Parade, that opened the exhibit, gave Victorians an opportunity to experience the wide parameters that encompass art," said Morgan Trafton, new executive director of the Victoria Regional Museum.

Suppliers predict lower summer gas prices

interr uptions can cause prices to jump in the short term as wholesale traders buy up supplies. Similar "fear premiums" often happen with news of hurricanes or refinery outages. "No matter what happens, eventually the laws of supply and demand take over," Luddeke said. The slow economy has reduced demand for gasoline, and as a result, prices are dropping. Refiners also have large supplies and are continuing to make more, he said. Other analysts agreed with Luddeke's opinion on prices. "I think you'll see prices in the $2.50 to $2.60 range to the middle of July," said Tom Kloza, director of editorial content for the Marylandbased Oil Price Information Service. Later in the summer, prices could climb as high as $2.75, he said. Past that point, there are too many variables to make much of a prediction. However, dire predictions of $3 and $3.50 a gallon gas probably won't come to pass, he said. One local fuel retailer agreed. While no one can predict the future, Jon New, president of New Distributing, said prices should come down from the

This summer will bring lower gasoline prices for Victoria drivers. "It's going to be good for summer travelers," said Henry Luddeke, wholesale manager for Western Petroleum in Cuero. Prices should trade in the $2.50 to $2.60 range this summer, he predicted. "The problem with gasoline is that the prices have been going up because of the economic news, not because of supply," Luddeke said. Unfounded fears of supply

La nueva telenovela debuta el primer día de Junio en Univision. "Soy Tu Dueña" con Lucero, Fernando Colunga, David Zepeda, Gaby Spanic esta basada en una telenovela que salió hace unos

años llamada "La Dueña" con Angélica Rivera. "Corazón Salvaje" todavía esta saliendo en la media noche, hora en que casi todos estamos dormidos. Univision la cambio a esta hora porque

dicen que esta novela no tuvo los altos ratings ni en México y Estados Unidos. Sea lo que sea mucha gente quiere verla a la misma hora que antes. ¿Como les gusta "Hasta que el Dinero Nos Separe?" ¡Dos horas! El gran rumor de "Corazón Salvaje" es que Aracely Arambula y Cristian de la Fuente están saliendo juntos. ¿Amigos o amantes? Ya lo veremos. Otro rumor fue que Aracely y Luis Miguel se vean a juntar, pero no se hizo.

Los gemelos de Jennifer López y Mark Anthony ya tienen 2 años y Jennifer confeso que para recuperar su figura, "Tuve que hacer muchas dietas y entrenar muy duro en el gimnasio." Jennifer acaba de filmar una nueva película de Hollywood "Backup Plan" donde luce muy bien. Angélica Vale anuncio que se va para la Tierra Santa para filmar una película.

Adamari López admite que ella siempre fue sincera y buena mujer en su matrimonio con Luis Fonsi. Ellos se divorciaron este año. El ex-esposo de Kate del Castillo, Luis García, no se porto como un caballero recientemente cuando dijo, "Tiró a Kate como una chancla y Demian la recogió." Alejandra Rosaldo y Eugenio Derbez siguen juntos. Ella quiere un bebé, quizás el también con ella pero el ya tiene hijos con dos ex-mujeres. Si no lo saben, la cantante Linda Ronstadt es la cantante que tiene mas premios del Grammy. Se ha ganado 10. Christian Mier y Génesis Rodríguez todavía están juntos. Se conocieron cuando trabajaron juntos en la telenovela "Doña Bárbara." Génesis es la hija del cantante José Luis Rodríguez "El Puma." Los rumores de que Lucero y Mijares se van a divorciar ya no están muy fuertes. Los dos salen juntos y se ven muy bien. Ahora sale el rumor de que Alicia Villarreal esta celosa de Jenni Rivera. ¿De donde salió este rumor? Hace tiempo que no sale la actriz Susana Gonzáles en la prensa. Ella misma aclara, "No mandare mensajes ambiguos en la prensa. Quiero hacerme entender: no volveré a hablar de mi vida personal." La cantante y actriz Dulce nos deja con este mensaje, "A mis 54 años pueden ver que estoy más `buena' que cualquiera que tenga 20 menos que yo." ¿Que tal? Nos vemos en este mismo lugar en julio 2010.

Overweight society could lead to health problems

by Manuel De Los Santos Jr.

Mi Opinion

and emphasis placed on book learning has given way to neglect of our physical wellbeing. Or, so it seems. Nowhere was it more evident than at these particular events. With no scientific system to support my observations, merely eyesight, it just seemed that more and more of our Mexican-Americans are allowing ourselves to join the ranks of the heavy duty. Additional observation corroborated our belief that at least every other person, more so in the younger generation, was overweight All this reflection seems to have occurred because as a victim of diabetes, it has become more and more a per-

As we pondered what to print last month, two important issues (obesity in the Hispanic society and the Arizona immigration law) came to mind. Even though both pieces, in my opinion, were timely and relevant, I was swayed by the most pressing situation ­ the Arizona law that seemed to have the entire country in turmoil. Imagine what I felt when, only a few days later, the local daily's front page lead story was on obesity in the country. However, more stunning was that four cities in our great state were on the Top 10 list and the straw that broke the

camel's back was that these are cities with predominantly Hispanic populations. The following is what we would have printed had I made a different call last month. Recently, I had the opportunity to attend the Tejano Music Fanfare in San Antonio, the Tejano Music Capital of the World, and returned with a disappointed view of the physical appearance of Mexican Americans. Additionally, a few weeks later, a similar musical fiesta was held in our own backyard and to even greater disappointment the observation was the same result ­ too many overweight youngsters. The added importance

sonal agenda ­ to make others see what can happen without proper care. In my more than 20 years fighting this monster, I take it as a personal slap in the face when I believe that individuals are not doing what it takes to take care of themselves personally. However, I do have to admit that I, too, sometimes get tired of all the work it takes to control this monster that I slip into doing things I know I should not. I feel that, as one who has been in this war for so long, I surely deserve to take a break from taking all the precautions, but this is a lame excuse. One, especially the younger generations, surely

must recognize that one has a long life to live, a lot to give to society and a lot to gain and enjoy by taking the proper precautions. The most important thing is to take care of oneself. This will not happen if we don't begin exercising, eating right and losing weight. Contrary to what one may think, one really does not look "good" being overweight. However, the most tragic outcome would be getting an illness such as diabetes that is usually very problematic and very prevalent in the Hispanic community. But the most tragic effect is that diabetes can lead to death.

the game. Being the innovators that we were, Mike (the friend's husband) and I decided that we would ride his scooter to the game. To make it in time, we would cut across yards and by the Officers' Club as that would save us plenty of time. The base was located in a hilly area and so you can imagine what we looked like cutting across lawns y pa arriba y pa abajo in the little scooter. Y otra vez la Chema had to have her say, explaining that we looked like two Magilla Gorillas on a motorcycle. Y la mera verdad, who had even asked her? And why is this important almost 30 years later? Because my car broke down, I needed a part and she tried to get me to ride my daughter's bicycle to the parts store. Call me Magilla ­ no estoy tonto ­ mejor me fui a pie.

Siguiendo el camino

Gente, como yo, that try to do a bit for the community sometimes cannot help but wonder why things aren't forgotten or just ignored. Then there are those whose spouses, like mine, who can't wait to bring up a sore subject matter, años después, muchos años después. No hay mas mal mazorca than the one you try to hide in the closet because eventually you will have to answer for it. Such is the case of my motorcycle escapade and probably why I don't run for office of any kind. Many years ago, after being married a few short months, I was faced with a dilemma that was suitable for review by the board of super heroes. I had been sitting at home, when my mother came to our home next door with the message, from my wife, that all my work clothes had been stolen from the washateria. I guess the modern word is laundromat. ¿Pero como, I thought to myself y ahora que voy hacer? I had always told my wife that in the "big city " you don't leave anything out of sight or it will grow legs. I say big because she was born and raised in Bloomington, where they used to steal sweet corn and sandias from the fields. Pues, I waited for a bit and pondered (translated for Sylvester: tried to figure out how to get there as we had only one car) and Mrs. Chemo and my sister were took it to the laundromat trying to dry clothes that had been stolen. Pues no venían y no venían

and I decided I have to go see what is going on and guess what I rode on? my little brother's 20-inch bicycle. You guess it, I made quite a sight. Thank God we didn't have a camera with a flash. Pero lo que me encabrono was that La Vieja Chemo came home and told my mom that the only one they had seen on the road, El Gordito next door riding his bike. Forward my life a few years, playing baseball for an Air Force team while stationed in Panama, I was again waiting for La Chema, who this time had gone shopping with one of our friends. It was getting closer and closer to game time and they were no where in sight. In those days, there were no cell phones. Really, no me importaba en donde andaban, mas me importaba que we might have to forfeit

As to the photographs that make up the exhibition, they cover a wide range of vehicles from a re-creation of both an armadillo and a cockroach to low-riders. In addition, the Virgen de Guadalupe graces a vehicle. Several photographs reflect the diversity of both participants and observers.

$2.99 in August, driven up by international demand for cr ude oil from places like China. However, Kloza pointed out that Texas prices are usually about 20 cents per gallon below the national average. This means Victoria drivers probably won't see $3 gasoline prices this summer.
