DESPITE DISTRACTIONS, MAYOR TURNER SAYS HOUSTON WILL SHINE ON SUPER BOWL SUNDAY

Houston, we have a problem. Well…maybe not. Super Bowl mania is upon us again. Whether you’re a football fan or not doesn’t really matter. It’s time to go crazy and this year, the city of Houston is hosting the biggest party on earth. It’s pageantry personified for six days and nights before Donald Trump’s pal Tom Brady and the New England Patriots take on the...

WHY DID TRUMP SNUB ABEL MALDONADO FOR AGRICULTURE CABINET POST?

Even if a decision defies logic, Donald J. Trump seems to relish the element of surprise. Get used to it, folks. After calling Mexicans drug peddlers, criminals and rapists, there was a glimmer of hope that our new president might give a brown person a fair shake. After all, he created a Hispanic Advisory Council during crunch time in his campaign, correct? Then came a...

DOES TONY ROMO STILL HAVE A FUTURE WITH THE DALLAS COWBOYS?

The Dallas Cowboys were once known as “America’s team” when the topic was football. From 1991-1999, they missed the playoffs only once and won the Super Bowl three times. But since 2009, they’ve made it to the post season only once, primarily due to the fragile health of the club’s celebrity quarterback Tony Romo. This season though, there’s a new sheriff in Dallas named Rayne...

PITTSBURGH STEELERS LINEMAN ALEJANDRO VILLANUEVA IS A TRUE AMERICAN HERO

  When the Oakland Raiders battled the Houston Texans back on November 21st at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, a festive crowd of 76,743 savored every moment. Mexicans go crazy over American football and many identify with Raider Nation across the border. The puzzling part of this extravaganza was that not a single player from either team was of Hispanic descent. There are a few...

GARCETTI LEADS BIG CITY MAYORS IN BATTLE TO DISCOURAGE TRUMP’S DEPORTATION PLANS

The divide between urban and rural America was clearly apparent in our country’s last election. Hillary Clinton won the popularity contest by around three million votes because of her strength in the inner cities. The results were the same from coast to coast, wherever the minority population had the numbers to make a difference. Donald Trump, the New York City billionaire, ironically had the geographical...

NOT EVEN THE VATICAN CAN DELIVER HOPE FOR VENEZUELA

Venezuela’s embattled president Nicolas Maduro has found himself between a rock and a hard place with an abundance of political enemies, both at home and abroad. His approval ratings among the citizens of his oil-rich republic has dipped below 20 percent. In desperation, Maduro has even petitioned The Vatican and Pope Francis to intervene. Yet, this burly bully still insists on playing by his own...

FIDEL’S DEATH BRINGS HOPE FOR MORE CHANGE IN CUBA

November 25th, 2016 is a date more than two million Cuban Americans will never forget. Late that evening, they learned that brutal-turned-sickly dictator Fidel Castro, 90, had finally checked out of their world. In Miami, the epicenter of Cuban patriotism, hundreds of people poured into the streets. They cheered, danced, beat pots and pans, waved the Cuban flag, cried for joy and popped open champagne...

CELEBRITY LATINA CHEF MICHELLE BERNSTEIN IS STILL ON TOP IN THE CULINARY WORLD

It’s been a rough year for Michelle Bernstein, the Latina queen of cooking who led the revival of Miami’s Upper East District. Bernstein was forced to close her iconic restaurant, CENA by Michy on Biscayne Boulevard, after an amazing 10 year run. The building was sold to a real estate developer with plans to triple her rent on a par with the current market value....

THERE’S NOTHING LIKE MEXICAN COMFORT FOOD

I have ties to many countries in Latin America, and one of the best things about exploring the region is sampling the “comida tipica,” or what I call “comfort food.” It’s the traditional cuisine that the locals might only consume on Sunday or special occasions, yet most of the ingredients are part of the daily diet. In Colombia, it could be a tamale filled with...
