THE JUNE PRIMARIES: THERE’S NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT TO VOTE AND CELEBRATE OUR DEMOCRACY

If you are part of our grassroots reading audience, I apologize for the lack of inactivity on our website. While our Facebook page has generated a lot of traffic and provocative conversations, a recent illness has made it difficult for me to post original material on HispanicHorizons.com. But with mid-term elections about to take place in June, it’s time for all of us to pay...

PRESIDENT TRUMP PRAISES MILITARY AND PANS SANCTUARY CITIES IN WHIRLWIND VISIT TO CALIFORNIA

Under unprecedented, multi-layered security from federal officials and local law enforcement clad in riot gear, President Donald J. Trump flew to San Diego yesterday aboard Air Force One in a brief but busy itinerary. The visit on March 13th was Trump’s first trek to California since the election, and he had a lot on his plate. The president arrived at MCS Miramar at about 11am,...

ROOKIE TONY ROMO RACKS UP RAVE REVIEWS IN THE BROADCAST BOOTH

It’s been over a year since we last checked in with Antonio Ramiro Romo, the iconic quarterback of Dallas Cowboy fame better known as Tony Romo. At the time, the veteran NFL star was finally healthy, suited up and anxious to get back in the mix. But instead of barking signals on the field, Romo was stationed on the sidelines wearing a pair of ear phones....

DISNEY FILM “COCO” CAPTURES A TRADITIONAL SLICE OF LATINO CULTURE

There is nothing more important to the Hispanic culture and heritage than family. There might be conflicts and differences in opinion. Sometimes, it’s necessary to break away and search for answers. But in the end, that tradition never wavers. It’s all about respect, not only for the living but those who have departed. Throughout most of Latin America and especially in southern Mexico, the deceased...

JOE ARPAIO PARDON FANS THE FLAMES OF HATE

It didn’t take Donald J. Trump very long to once again show his true colors. With the entire country glued to their television screens in despair over the damage created by Hurricane Harvey, our president pondered a prime time announcement that had nothing to do with Mother Nature. This, he reasoned, was the perfect moment to pardon Sheriff Joe Arpaio. “I figured the (television) ratings...

IVAN “PUDGE” RODRIGUEZ…THE PRIDE OF PUERTO RICO

Sunday July 30th was a magical day in Cooperstown, New York, especially for the island of Puerto Rico. In fact, it was a proud day for Latino baseball players in general, from the pro ranks to Little League. Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez, the legendary catcher and 14-time All-Star, was inducted into the Hall of Fame. Pudge went in as a Texas Ranger, the organization that signed...

FIRE UP THE GRILL WITH LATINO FLAIR

Summer is here and that means it’s barbecue season, no matter if you’re tailgating at the ball park or planning a cookout in the backyard. There’s nothing better than traditional “carne asada,” especially if served in its most trendy form as “street tacos.” If you’re the chef in charge, no worries. It’s pretty hard to screw up this grilled treat as long as your creation...

AMONG LATINO SKATERS, PAUL RODRIGUEZ JR. LEADS A NEW GENERATION

Just like punk and alternative rock peaked in the 1980’s, so did the golden era of skateboarding. The culture and lifestyle just seemed naturally compatible. Super stars emerged like good guy Tony Hawk and bad guy Mark “Gator” Rogowski, who is still serving a 25 years to life sentence for murder. But for the most part, the sport has been dominated by creative, dare-devil Latinos....

SAN DIEGO’S CHICANO PARK SHARES ITS LEGACY WITH THE NATION

It was a typical busy weekend at Chicano Park, a symbol of civic pride in San Diego’s Barrio Logan community beneath the Coronado Bay bridge. It’s a grassy, intimate plot of land in an urban setting where neighbors can gather with their families to enjoy a picnic or check out events of cultural interest. On this particular day it was Palm Sunday, which seemed like...
