BOLIVIA
El ministro de Relaciones Exteriores de Bolivia, David
Choquehuanca, dijo que su pas pretende anunciar su
incorporacin como miembro pleno del Mercosur en enero
proximo, aunque aclar que sin abandonar la Comunidad
Andina (CAN). Segn explic, el presidente boliviano Evo
Morales enviara una carta a sus homlogos de la Comunidad
Andina de Naciones y del Mercosur, explicando los pasos
que su gobierno dara en ese sentido. Actualmente, Bolivia
es miembro asociado del Mercosur, al igual que los otros
integrantes de la CAN (Ecuador, Per y Colombia) y Chile,
que no pertenece a ningn bloque. El canciller de Brasil,
Celso Amorim,dijo en la misma rueda de prensa que, en
su opinin, "no habr problemas" paraque Bolivia se incor-
pore al Mercosur sin abandonar la CAN, incluso porque el
bloque andino "ha dejado de ser una unin aduanera" tras
la decisin de Colombia y Per de firmar acuerdos de libre
comercio con Estados Unidos. Las tensiones en la regin
crecen despus que Venezuela se retir de la CAN a pesar
del pedido de Evo Morales al Presidente Chvez de regresar
a ese organismo..

COLOMBIA
Quito. El presidente de Colombia, lvaro Uribe, dijo
este lunes que, la guerrilla de las FARC quiere crear un
conflicto entre su pas y Ecuador a travs de los cultivos

Una amenaza de bomba oblig el martes al desalojo del Es d I

de Estados Unidos en la periferia suroeste de la capital. "La
embajada de los Estados Unidos confirma que este da se re-
cibi una amenaza de bomba", inform la misin diplomtica
en un comunicado. La oficina de prensa de la Embajada
se limit a informar a la AP que unidades especiales de la
polica mantienen un operativo en la sede diplomtica y sus
alrededores, al suroeste de la capital. Tras la amenaza, la
embajada desaloj a un grupo de personas que tramitaban
desde temprano visas y la polica coloc retenes en los al-
rededores. "Apreciamos la cooperacin del gobierno de El
Salvador, especialmente de la polica para asegurar que
tanto la embajada como nuestros vecinos estn seguros",
seal el comunicado. Al parecer, Estados Unidos sigue en
la mira de grupos terroristas que amenazan la tranquilidad
de sus ciudadanos.

CUBA
Un profesor universitario de Miami se declar culpable
este martes de conspirar como agente de la inteligencia cu-
bana en Estados Unidos y su esposa de ocultarlo. Ambos
enfrentan condenas de hasta cinco y tres aos en prisin,
respectivamente. Carlos lvarez, de 61 aos, y su esposa
Elsa, de 56, ambos empleados de la Universidad Interna-
cional de la Florida (FIU), fueron detenidos el pasado mes
de enero, acusados de ser agentes del gobierno cubano,
l desde 1977 y ella desde 1982. Ambos enfrentaban
condenas mximas de hasta 10 aos en prisin, pero lle-
garon a un acuerdo con la Fiscala federal para declararse
culpables de delitos menores. Segn la Fiscala, lvarez
informaba al gobierno cubano sobre grupos anticastristas,
utilizaban nombres en clave, comunicaciones codificadas y
se reunan en el extranjero con miembros de la inteligencia
cubana; su esposa lo saba pero nunca lo delat. La condena
del matrimonio se conocer en una' audiencia prxima en
febrero de 2007. El caso ha generado gran expectativa dentro
del mundo de los cubanos exialiados en Miami.

S Noti cias de Inmigrac on Chef Pastelero a la Casa Blanca
Directori de Inmigracio de Catholic Charities
Por Jos Fernndez


Su Residencia Permanente o
Ciudadana Puede ser Revocada
Pregunta: Me llamo Juana Huerta y soy originaria de El Sal-
vador. Tengo ms de siete aos viviendo en los EE.UU. Despus
de haber llegado a este pas me cas con un ciudadano ameri-
cano y obtuve mi residencia condicional de dos aos. Despus
de una gran espera de diez aos, finalmente recib mi Residencia
Permanente. Hace seis meses, por fin me decid a solicitar mi
ciudadania, pero me ha ido muy mal y creo que estoy en un
grave problema. Hace un mes tuve mi entrevista de ciudadana
y el examen de historia, gobierno e idioma Ingls. Los pas sin
ningn problema, pero el oficial de Inmigracin me hizo muchas
preguntas sobre los dos hijos que tuve antes de mi matrimonio
con el ciudadano americano y me pidi las actas de nacimiento
de mis hijos. Me pidi que se las mandara por correo lo antes
posible. Hace dos das le mand las actas de nacimiento al ofi-
cial y no s qu va a pasar con mi trmite de Ciudadana. El
problema es que mis dos hijos no son del ciudadano americano
sino de otra persona. Qu me aconseja que haga?

Respuesta: Seora Huerta, lo que debe hacer es contratar un
abogado de Inmigracin o una agencia acreditada por el Departa-
mento de Inm igracin para que le represente. Como usted lo dijo,

S.. Legend of Robln Redbreast
On that first Christmas, it is said, the night was wrapped in
a bitter chill. The small fire in the stable was nearly out, and the
Mother Mary worried that her baby would be cold, she turned
to the animals about her and asked them for help.
S"Could you blow on the embers," she asked the ox, "so the
fire might continue to keep my son warm?"
SBut the ox lay sound asleep on the stable floor and did not -
hear her. Next, Mary asked the donkey to breathe life back into
the fire, but the sleeping donkey did not hear Mary either. Nor
did the horse or sheep. She wondered what to do.
Suddenly, Mary heard a fluttering of little wings. Looking
up, she saw a plain, brown-coloured little robin fly into the
stall. This robin had heard Mary calling to the animals and
had come to help her himself. He went over to the dying fire
and flapped his wings hard.
His wings were like little bellows, huffing and puffing air onto
the embers, until they glowed bright red again. He continued
to fan the fire, singing all the while, until the ashes began to
kindle.
With his beak, the robin picked up some fresh, dry sticks
and tossed them into the fire. As he did, a flame suddenly burst
forth and burned the little bird's breast a bright red. But the
robin simply continued to fan the fire until it crackled brightly
and warmed the entire stable.-The Baby Jesus slept happily.
Mary thanked and praised the robin for all he had done.
She looked tenderly at his red breast, burned by the flame,
and said "From now on, let your red breast be a blessed re-
minder of your noble deed."
And to this day, the robin's red breast covers his humble
heart.

Once there was an elf named Frez who would get so nervous
duritrg Christmas time that he would eat two lunches at the elf
cafeteria. He tried to be just too perfect in toy making and never
thought they were good enough for the children. The dolls' eyes
never sparkled enough, thought Frez, and the wagons were not
as shinny as last year. Nothing seemed to be going right and
the time for delivery of the presents was getting closer.
It was beyond anybody's understanding why Frez was get-
Sting so particular and asking for an elf suit larger than his
Florida Carpenters Regional Council size. Then, one day Santa foundout what the problem was and
and decided to solve it. It seemed that Frez was not a young elf, but
The United Brotherhood of Carpen ters and Joiners ofAmerica elves never looked their age by the virtue of being ever cheerful
SU B o J o and happy. Frez needed to feel he was special, so Santa assigned
him his own project called "special toys." These were the toys
that were broken and needed to be repaired with love. Frez was
Styso glad to be in charge of such a project that he had only one

S*bago, at the court of Ludovico
the Moorish Duke of Milan,
during Christmas Eve, the
cooks were preparing desserts
for Christmas. Unfortunately,
those sweets got burned and

Instead, the origins of pan-
doro are different. Pandoro is
a typical dessert of Verona that
competes with the panettone
for the title of tlie "most popu-
lar Italian Christmas dessert."
Its origins are still unsure but a
recent popular belief connects
s anL d? it to the court of the Hapsburg.
There, since 1700 and 1800,
they knew how to make crois-
sants and "Vienna Bread,"
which are the basic recipes
for pandoro. This dessert is
very similar to a croissaht and
it is covered with powdered
sugar. In the last few years,
pandoro became more popular
than panettone because kids
prefer it.
After December 8, some
Italian cities celebrate Santa

Christmas carols and caroling in the old world was a mix
of singing and dancing and was practiced for all festivals
throughout the year. When Christmas was firmly established
to be celebrated on December 25, many of the existing carols
(or songs) were sung on that day and new ones written to cel-
ebrate Christmas.
SSt. Francis of Assisi was instrumental in making the
Christmas celebration one for the people instead ofjust for the
clergy. He created large nativity scenes outside of his church
and translated many of the Christmas carols from Latin into
languages spoken by the average person and encouraged them
to sing these songs to express their joy during the Christmas
