Pets: Los gatos y la rabia.Debido a que los gatos son los animales domésticos que con más frecuencia son reportados con rabia en los EEUU, se recomienda ampliamente que se vacunen a todos los gatos. Generalmente vacunamos a nuestros perros, pero los gatos son frecuentemente ignorados.
Cats and rabies.
Because cats are the most frequently reported rabid domestic animal in the United States, vaccination of all cats is strongly advised. We are pretty good with vaccinating our dogs, but cats are often overlooked. See p. 3.

Parece que en estos días todo el mundo dice estar “apasionado” con esto o aquello. Inicialmente la expresión me hacía reír, pues mi referencia principal al término pasión era la pasión melodramática de las telenovelas de
Latinoamérica...Pasemos Nuestra Pasión /Passing the Passion. It seems like these days everyone claims to be “passionate” about this or that. Initially the expression made me chuckle, since my main reference to the term related to the melodramatic “pasión” characteristic of Latino soap operas... by Marisol Muñoz-Kiehne, PhD Page 9.

A poem about the Dragonfly / La Libélula by Radha Weaver. Page 5. A cartoon and some scientific information!


Página 1/Front Cover: Deborah Rael-Buckley, is a nationally renowned Hispanic ceramic sculptor who works from her studio at her home in Taos, New Mexico. Rael-Buckley draws from her family’s Jewish converso past to create ceramic art. “We’re pure Spaniards,” her father had always said. Beyond her grandparents’ personal history, Rael and her five siblings never knew much more than that. Spanish was not spoken in the home. That ended with her grandparents, save the occasional dichos or didactic sayings in Spanish. As a teen her father changed his name from Ricardo Alonso Rael to Richard Alvin Rael. He had Anglicized the pronunciation of their surname to “Rail” from “Ray-EL”. Beyond the abuelos, any information about earlier Raeles of bygone days lay hidden in the shadows of their forgotten history. Read The Shadows of her Forgotten Ancestors on page 5 and 6.

Deborah Rael-Buckley, Persona del Mes, es una escultora Hispana que crea con cerámica, reconocida a nivel nacional, y que trabaja en su estudio en casa en Taos, Nuevo México. Rael-Buckley lo saca del pasado de judíos conversos de su familia, para crear arte en cerámica. “Somos españoles puros”, le decía siempre su padre. Más allá de la historia personal de sus abuelos, Rael y sus cinco hermanos nunca supieron mucho más que eso. En casa no se hablaba español. Eso se terminó con sus abuelos, excepto por los dichos ocasionales en español. Cuando era un adolescente, su padre se cambió el nombre de Ricardo Alonso Rael a Richard Alvin Rael. El había anglicanizado la pronunciación de su apellido a “Rail” de “Ray-El”. Más allá de los abuelos, cualquier información acerca de los antiguos Raeles de los días de antaño se quedaba oculta en las sombras de su historia olvidada.

Person of the Month, Bayer Farm.
La Voz’s Person of the Month articles celebrate outstanding members of the community and their contributions to our region. Since our inception we have featured folks from both private and public sectors as well as local college students. Some, like the community leaders we’ve featured are well-known. Others are not, but richly deserving the recognition for their civic contributions. We’ve featured artists, athletes, educators, elected officials, business professionals, community organizers, TV and print media people and even a woman who cleans houses for a living. But this is the first time we’ve featured a farm.
El artículo sobre La Persona del Mes celebra
a los miembros sobresalientes de la comunidad y sus contribuciones a nuestra región. Desde que empezamos, hemos presentado a personas, tanto del sector privado como del público, asi como a estudiantes de las escuelas locales. Algunos, como los líderes comunitarios que hemos presentado, son muy conocidos. Otros no, pero se merecen mucho el reconocimiento por sus contribuciones a la sociedad. Hemos presentado a artistas, atletas, maestros, servidores públicos, profesionales de negocios, organizadores comunitarios, gente de la TV y de los medios y hasta a una mujer que limpia casas como medio de vida. Sin embargo, esta es la primera vez que presentamos una granja.

Person of the Month, Martín Zuñíga.
“My mission for Santa Rosa is to find underrepresented artists and make sure they are in galleries, museums, and in the art world. Generally, I’m looking for these artists in the special education classrooms, in the criminal justice system, in the fields, in communities that are usually not associated with the fine art world. These artists express experiences that need to be shared and appreciated, and I want to make sure there is a space for all of us, and a light shining on this work too.”
“Mi misión para Santa Rosa es encontrar a artistas poco conocidos y asegurarme de que estén en galerías, museos y en el mundo del arte. En general, yo busco a estos artistas en los salones de clases de educación especial, en el sistema de justicia criminal, en los campos, en las comunidades que normalmente no están asociadas con el fino mundo del arte. Estos artistas expresan experiencias que necesitan ser compartidas y apreciadas y yo quiero asegurarme de que haya espacio para todos nosotros, y una luz que ilumine estos trabajos también.”

The Humanist Community by Noris Binet. Many believe that we are again
living through a historic moment that reaffirms the belief that humanism is not only essential but inevitable if we want to find ways to compel organizations to respond effectively to the real needs of communities. When work practices, implementation of programs and jobs look beyond just basic needs and address the “total human” as a core concern, then there arises an opportunity for communities to move forward and lead their own destiny.

SAFE AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS FOR YOUR FOUR-LEGGED FAMILY MEMBERS
By Dr. Christi Camblor

The holiday season is upon us and along with it come some special concerns for your pets. A delicious tray of Christmas chocolates or Halloween candy can turn into a toxic treat.
A stray turkey bone could be a choking hazard and even a piece of tinsel could be life threatening. The good news is once you know what the hazards are, you can easily keep your pets safe and sound for the holidays. See page 3.
