16 If Sacatepquez boasts La Antigua Guatemala, Alta Verapaz oers Semuc Champey and within Petns jungles lie the impressive ruins of Tikal, El Mirador and other ancient cities, what exactly is there to see and do in the department of Jalapa? Answer: extreme adventure combined with biodiversity! Just over two hours outside of Guatemala City, hidden in the subtropical mountains of Jalapa, sits Cascadas de Tatasirire, a solar-fuelled retreat in an ecological park bursting with activity. Seemingly in the middle of nowhere, the acres of beautifully preserved forest are lled with outdoor entertainment for all ages: swings, canopies, waterfalls and rappelling. Declared a protected area in 2003 by Guatemalas environmental body CONAP (Consejo Nacional de reas Protegidas), the eco-park is a sanctuary of ora and fauna which uses its natural environment to fuse recreation with low-impact tourism. e innovative project champions rural development and gives a unique insight into the surrounding indigenous cultures of the Xinka people who co-exist alongside the Pocoman and Ladino communities. e main attraction is the course of 12 swings spread throughout the forest, oering various levels of aerial exhilaration. reading yourself through ropes and launching o each of the platforms, you feel like Tarzan swinging through the forestjust remember to hold on with both hands as some swings are 6-12 meters above the ground! Next step is to brave the ...cont. page 84 TRAVEL by Anna-Claire Bevan www.annaclairebevan.wordpress.comPrivate Nature Preserve Off the Beaten Track: Jalapa

18 Soda cans, milk cartons and newspapers arent at the top of most peoples Christmas lists, but this year the impressive creations of Creamos should be. Using old magazines and cardboard boxes, 25 women, who used to make a living scavenging in the municipal garbage dump, have been able to start their lives over again and escape the poverty of their past. ree years ago a group of women from an adult literacy program in Guatemala City learned how to make jewelry out of recycled materials, and since then they havent stopped. e small crafts work shop has quickly became an independent business, which recently started exporting goods to the U.S. Creamos, which means lets believe and lets create in Spanish, is focused on sustainable entrepreneurship and consists of a group of mothers who are all learning to read and write at Camino Seguro (Safe Passage), an NGO that works with Guatemala Citys garbage-dump community. e mothers, who all live close to the project, study for two hours a day and then create their jewelry at homethis schedule provides exibility in caring for their children. Once a week the women come to the project for a group meeting where they turn in their work, conduct peer reviews and receive a payout from the previous weeks sales.

17In Guatemala: People of Tradition, photographer Santiago Albert and editor Christine Wilson give us the gift of a Guatemala that reects the contemplative aspect of this holiday season. Without the noise of vibrant color, the focus turns from the pageantry of feasts and estas to the quiet of inward reection, perfectly demonstrated by black and white photographs. We see the young boy carrying the man-sized anda in a La Antigua Guatemala Lenten procession, and his need to reach for inner strength. We see candlelight reect peace in an Esquipulas cave dedicated to the Black Christ. We feel the seriousness of an Olintepeque oering to king San Pascual, venerated by the Kiche as holy death. In Guatemala: People of Tradition, we see the depth of feeling, reverence and respect that has created the colorful outward pageantry that identies Guatemala to the rest of the world. ...continued page 74BOOK ALERT by Dianne Carono photographs by Santiago AlbertPeople of Tradition

18 The Mayan ruins of Qui rigu in Izabal and El Zotz in Petn, as well as the his toric architecture of Belize City, have been included on the World Monuments Fund (WMF) 2012 Watch, a list of cultural heritage sites around the world at risk of damage or destruction from a variety of threats. With a mission of preserving the worlds architectural heritage of sig nicant monuments, buildings and sites, the WMF listed 67 locations in 41 countries in its 2012 Watch. ree Central American locations were in cluded: Quirigu An archaeological site dating to the Mayan Classic period, Quirigu is a complex of pyramids, terraces and stairways. e site is best known for its superb sculp tures, includ ing outstand ing stelae. Quirigu was added to the UNESCO World Heri tage List in 1981. Quirigus long-term preservation is challenged by a number of fac tors, according to the WMF. Illegal timber extraction and deforestation from farming have greatly increased the risk of ooding, as more than 70% of the forest cover in the sur rounding valley has been lost.

19 agement plan has been devel oped to help, implementation is constrained by limited re sources and encroachment of surrounding private industry. El Zotz Nestled in the dense forest of the Biotopo San Miguel la Palotada, the Mayan ar chaeological site of El Zotz features pyramids, palaces, plazas, and a ball court. Deforestation and looting pose constant challenges, ac cording to WMF. A pyramid is in danger of collapse from unstable trees, and the pro gressive erosion in a looters trench is damaging the stucco faades of structures. Many tourists visit El Zotz as part of tours to nearby Tikal. Belize City Established in the mid-17th century as a trading post for precious woods, Belize City has many colonial buildings that are quickly deteriorating, according to WMF. An in ventory and protection strate gies are greatly needed to en sure the preservation of these historically signicant houses, the group said.

My name is ompson be cause da Vinci was al ready taken, Al quips in his typical, quick humor. In fact, there are similarities between the 15th century art ist and Al ompson, born in 1928. Both justly claim a diversity of talents: painting, sculpting, inventing, writing, to name a few. An exhibition of Als most recent cre ations opens December 3 at el attico, 4a. Av. 15-45, zona 14, Guatemala City. He calls his art form sculpting the print. It all began about 20 years ago when archaeologist and La Antigua Guatemala resident Ed Shook recognized the artist in teacher/educator Al ompson and oered to sell him six books of 24Kt gold leaf on tissue paper pages. at sounded interesting, so Sure, why not? thought Al. He bought the little books, about ve inches square, stamped Made in Germany, then forgot about them for years while he painted with oils, cultivated coee, devised equipment with which to process it and wrote books. Eventually, there they were again. What will I do with the gold? he asked Antigua friend Barbara Leaver. Barbara remembered seeing the work of Gustav Klimt in Austria and brought Al a book of prints. Early in the 20th century Klimt, recognized as Viennas greatest painter, used gold to bring life and energy into his Byzantine-inspired mosaic style paintings. e problem with prints is that theyre inert compared to originals, Al and his friends agreed. He played with ideas of how What Will I Do with the Gold? Artist Prole by Jack and Joy Houston

to re-energize the prints with gold. Living in Guatemala is marvelous. If I get a yen to do something, theres not a pile of peers to question it. No one said, Dont do that! Why are you wasting that gold! e rst challenge was how to lift the fragile gold leaf from the tissue page without disintegrating or destroying it. Gold leaf is 3/100,000 of an inch thick! He gured out that he could slide the gold leaf onto waxed paper, then ve-e-e-r-y carefully, but also very quickly, pat onto it a layer of tissue paper brushed with white glue. To his delight he discovered that this not only stabilized the gold leaf, but it shriveled and shrunk into attractive texture. A second layer of tissue glued to the rst secured the sheet. Next, how to use the sheets of gold leaf. Paint with enamel? Use as background or mats? Enhance prints? Yes, yes and yes. He experimented with these and all by acci dent came up with the idea of sculpting the print. en I ddled with the glass idea to oat the print over gold background. In addition to Klimt works, I googled icon, he states proudly, and searched the web for non-copyrighted masterpieces and manuscripts from all over the worldItaly, Greece, Turkeyto print out and make cop ies. en, with a razor knife, sensitive to the line and form intrinsic to the subject, he me ticulously cut out the details to gild. I laid the print on the glass rst, because my wife doesnt like me to cut through the table. Carolyn, Als wife and clearly valuable consultant, comments that Al is engrossed in his work before dawn. He spends a lot of time just staring at the print, coming to the right interface between gold and picture. Al agrees. About three in the morning I see these pictures in my head and get ideas about how to make them come out, to actu alize them. Added adornments of amboy ant swirls and zigzag loops achieve just the right balance to enhance the subject. : e artist reviews the gilded, sculpted prints. : e nished collection hangs on a wall of the ompson home. : Madonna and Son, Italy, 15th century. : Ancient Greek goddess Pallas Athenaprint of Gustav Klimt original, gold-enhanced by ompson. ...continued page 48

34 E D UCATI ON by Anna-Claire BevanWe have a commitment to culture in Guatemala and want to make it accessible to all, said Adriana Recinos Matheu, cultural director of IGA (Instituto Guatemalteco Americano). We need to educate our audience and for that we have to start with the kids. Since 1945, IGA has been providing individuals of all ages, from all corners of the globe, with the largest array of educational development programs in Guatemala. From teaching courses for international students, to middle and high school for local students, the center has seen thousands upon thousands of pupils graduate from its building in Guatemala City and branches throughout the country. is year the school is even working with Gallaudet University from the U.S. to implement a new course to teach English to deaf pupils. However, there is more to IGA than providing its students with a strong bilingual syllabus; its also working on enriching its curriculum with an increased range of cultural programs too. Committed to CultureIGA provides an array of educational development programs Joselyn Aguilar : I love English, its my favorite subject and this school opens doors. I want to study abroad, perhaps medicine at Cambridge University. Helen vila : For me, the main reason to come here was for the English. My sister also studies here, and I heard how her English was improving. e classes are dynamic, and I love the U.S. culture. I want to be an accountant and work at the Bank of Guatemala. Oscar Garanza : We have the chance to go into great jobs from here. One day Id like to be a teacher and work in public schools in Guatemala. STUDENT PER SP ECTIVE S

In September IGA held a photography program, which featured award-winning Guatemalan photographer Andrs Asturias working with students to produce an exhibition within Foto >30. I dont think Ive ever seen teenagers so enthused. ey were desperate to stay behind on a Friday to work on their displays, laughed Recinos Matheu.

Many of the countrys artists have a piece of themselves in this theaterits almost a second home to them. We dont have many theaters in Guatemala so we want to bring quality shows to this one, stated Recinos Matheu. As well as in-house photography exhibitions, theater productions and art displays, IGA is dedicated to opening up a selection of events to the public. Plans are in progress for a live transmission of the MET Opera in HD, the freeIGA cont. from previous pagethree-week-long International Jazz Festival returns to the central park in zone 1 of the capital next year, and the theater will open with a Dick Smith play in the New Year.

Charles Dickens There is a remarkable breakdown of taste and intelligence at Christmastime. Mature, responsible grown men wear neckties made of holly leaves and drink alcoholic beverages with raw egg yolks and cottage cheese in them. P.J. ORourke PET Qs & As by Cynthia Burski, DVMSpitters, Scratchers, & Snappers Question: Our veterinarian has repeatedly told us that Oscar, our 5-year-old black lab, is overweight but he is always hungry, and we feel bad restricting his food. How important is it that he is a little bit overweight, and what can we do about it?Answer: Pets suer, just like people do, from being overweight. Extra weight is associated with, and exacerbates and compounds, several serious medical conditions, including arthritis, back problems, heart and lung problems, diabetes, heat exhaustion and fatal heat stroke. Extra pounds on Oscar also puts additional stress on his limb joints, eventually damaging and wearing out his joint cartilage and resulting in progressively painful joint movements. Ultimately, he could end up in chronic, debilitating pain. As well, excessive fat in the chest cavity stresses the heart and decreases its ability to effectively pump oxygenated blood to all of the body tissues, including the brain. It also decreases your pets ability to breathe and pant and doesnt allow the lungs to inate adequately. In order to help Oscar reduce the extra poundage, you can start by switching him to a low-calorie diet, which gives him volume to ll him up without adding more weight to his body. Begin and gradually increase an exercise program and importantly, drastically reduce or cut out treats (a major source of extra calories). Ideally, Oscar should be consuming 30 calories per pound a day (calculated on using his ideal weight). Because a dogs metabolism slows with age, and spaying and neutering decrease energy expenditure by almost 40 percent, calorie requirements change throughout his lifetime. Work with your veterinarian to gure out the quantity and type of food Oscar should be eating.

Also like Klimt, Al is good-natured and sociable but enjoys the solace of his studio. Hes a Fulbright scholar with a Ed.D. from Berkeley. Friends would argue his description as a self-perceived failure, but maybe that comes with the territory of genius. In Barbara Leavers words, Al has out-Klimted Klimt. e gold is almost all gone, now in the 26 framed works of the exhibit. ere will not be more. Why? Because Ive nished this, says Al.

54 Sensuous G uatemala by Ken Veronda Spices are important in Guatemalan cooking, especially in many sweets and drinks around the holidays. Spice colors are rich in the landscape this month also, which seems tting as spices were what the Europeans sought when they rst sailed west to bump into these shores. Guatemala produces some spices, but joins the rest of the world in adding clove, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and other spice avorings and aromas to holiday cooking. Meanwhile, Highland hillsides and gardens are brushed this month with such spice colors as tans, golden yellows, browns, reds and greens. Doa Catalina puts handfuls of cloves and ginger into her Christmas fruit punch. Doa Audrey makes a savory midnight cake with fresh vanilla extract from local beans. Doa Amanda always adds sticks of cinnamon to cups of her thick, hot chocolate. And of course many Guatemalans serve black, smoky cardamom seeds with their brewed coee. Cardamom is a major Guatemalan export. is country edged out Nepal a few years ago to be the worlds leading producer of cardamom seeds, pods and powder to avor Indian, Nordic, Middle Eastern and other worldwide cuisines. Cumin is also a big export, and is used in many Guatemalan recipes. Mayan tradition says eating some cumin each day keeps both chickens and lovers from straying. Weve not tested that, but if the Maya say so, it must be true. Fenugreek grows here too. Maybe you dont recognize this spice growing wild along the roads, but youd know the avor in many dishes. Fenugreek aroma is like maple, as people in New York City learned when a fenugreek extract processor across the Hudson spread the scent throughout the city, just as fenugreek added to Guatemalan recipes lls the kitchen with that pungent maple-syrup odor. Surely the spiciest addition to Guatemalan holidays is the cobanero chili from Alta Verapaz, hotter than many poor gringo mouths can tolerate, but forming a perfect color combination when woven into holiday wreaths. Cobanero is a shiny green pepper when young, turning into a nger of deep red when mature, colors blending into a perfect holiday decoration as well as chili adding an unforgettable avor to spicy dishes, if youre up to the heat. Spice avors and spice colors are all around you to enjoy as you wait to hear spicy salsa music at holiday celebrations. Take it all in with your taste buds, eyes and ears. Just be careful with even a touch of cobanero chili should you have a little cut!

56 by Elizabeth Bell /ASK ELIZABETH What is happening with the Palace of the Captains General?A year ago we reported on the back story of the restoration of the Palace of the Captains General in La Antigua Guatemala. e project met all restoration standards with a Q16 million budget and a projected two-plus years worth of work. I have been trained in architectural conservation (ICCROM/Rome), and I am very picky about restoration projects. e palace restoration is absolutely great! en the story became too good to be true! Its one thing to restore this 1764 structure to its original magnicence, adding 21st-century technology, particularly in lighting and internet. It is another issue to designate an appropriate use for it. After moving 14 government oces out of the palace in order for the restoration project to begin, the building was put under the Ministry of Culture and Sports, which made sense since the National Council for the Protection of La Antigua Guatemala (CONSEJO) is part of that ministry. is decision seems to have backred. e ministry, under the direction of architect Blanca Nio, held a workshop some four years ago to establish a use for the palace. Very few Antigua residents were invited. ere was no follow up information or outcome from this workshop until recently. And, under UNESCO guidelines, it is essential to take into consideration the local residents wishes for the use of their monumental heritage. Add that to the fact that Antigua residents do not want the Ministry of Culture and Sports sta to tell them what to do. News had it that the ministry was going to rent the space for three months to a clothing store from Guatemala City, a well-respected private museum and ANACAFE (coee association), among others that were arbitrarily chosen. Local participants? Zero. While shops may work very well on the piazza in Venice, Antiguas residents do not want a shopping mall in their palace. e palace is one of the most important buildings in the city. Remember that Antigua was abandoned by those who moved to Guatemala City after 1773, and it is the Antigua residents who have created the wonderful city that we see today, particularly since 1969. It has been through Antiguan residents painstaking efforts that we all enjoy the city today. So what do Antiguans want? A meeting was held with local representatives from a number of associations and distinguished residents who drafted a very well-written complaint based on the legislative agreements (397-2007 and 249-2008) calling for an Inter-institutional Commission for the Palace of the Captains General. ...continued page 58

What I enjoy about this process is the number of qualied residents who developed a well-organized plan of deciding the use of their cultural heritage. is is done through a democratic process with open meetings and by e-mailing anyone who is interested so everyone may participate. In November, the Agrupacin de la Sociedad Civil de Sacatepquez (ASOCIS), Asociacin de Arquitectos e Ingenieros Colegiados Diego de Porres, Asociacin de Mujeres Profesionales de Sacatepquez (AMPRODES), Asociacin de Vecinos Salvemos Antigua, Cmara Empresarial de Comercio y Servicios (CECOMS), Coalicin de Instituciones Vecinos, Cocodes y Asociaciones (CIVICA), Comit de Autogestin Turstica (CAT), Consejo Cvico de Vecinos de La Antigua Guatemala (CONCIVE) and Vecinos Organizados de la Calle del Espritu Santo (VOCES) conducted a peaceful protest in front of the palace to show that Antiguans do not want a centro comercial. Within the palace they want the governors oce (out of tradition), a small National Civil Police oce for assistance to crime victims, and the remainder of the space to be decided by the commission. Everyone is invited to participate. is is a BIG step for the preservation of Antiguas cultural heritage. A sk Elizabeth cont. from page 56

From earrings to key rings, bracelets to bags and photo frames to wallets, the women are becoming experts at targeting their goods toward their clienteleGuatemalans like detail and want the items to look mall bought, whereas U.S. customers prefer to show o the recycled element of the designs. I get my inspiration from magazines, says Irma Rodriguez, one of Creamos designers. When I see something in there that I havent designed before I think: I must try that. What started out as a fun crafts workshop has become a resource for entrepreneurship, enabling many of its members to escape the dangers of working in one of Central Americas largest garbage dumps. Its exciting to see how successful the project has become, and its up to the women where we go from here, Con says. credit ratings mean it is dicult for them to open up bank accounts, so consequently it is dicult for them to save. On payday most of the members used to hide their wages in their houses, which regularly got broken into, or they spent it before neighboring gangs could steal it. To combat this problem, Creamos set up an internal saving plan, which allows members to deposit any amount from their paycheck and draw upon it when needed. Its been really exciting to see. One woman was even able to save up enough money to pay o her debts and open up a real bank account, says Con. Oering more than just nancial security, Creamos also supports personal development through peer reviews, where the women evaluate each others work and implement the rst round of quality-control measures. Almost all of these women are survivors of domestic violence and arent used to voic-Creamos cont. from page 40 rough the project, the women also receive free day care for their children, access to a medical clinic, two meals a day and classes on nutrition and nancial planning.

66 rbol Gallo at El Obelisco in Guatemala CityCelebrations text/photos by Anna-Claire Bevan Since 1985 Guatemalas festive season has been given a kick start with the illumination of el rbol Gallo. For 26 years the Central American brewery has assembled giant Christmas trees in each department and accompanied the inauguration with impressive reworks displays and musical shows. e tradition started after the beer company was due to record a seasonal advertisement, involving people assembling a Christmas tree, and Gallo saw it as an opportunity to give back to its customers and thank them for their brand loyalty. It has now become an annual family event, with crowds gathering around midday in the capital to secure the best place from which to watch the show. In the past, the trees were adorned with pine leaves, but after catching re on more than one occasion, they are now decorated with articial materials. is year the company has invested $3.2 million creating public Christmas celebrations.

68 It is so often said that the Maya had few domesticated animals except for the dog and the Muscovy duck. e turkey was domesticated before the time the Spanish arrived. Yet the Maya had several forms of domesticated insects, with the lacquer insects the most obviously domesticated. You can still see the Maya raising Llavela axin today. A few months ago I saw my rst lacquer insect. I have long known that lacquer in Asia comes from a tree or from the lac insect. But I had no idea there was a lacquer insect in Guatemala. In Mayan languages, this insect is called niij. e lacquer insect is also called cochinilla in local Spanish and cochineal in English. e same word, cochinilla, is used for the smaller related insect, which is a primary source of red dye (for some lipstick and rouge, among other uses). Cochinilla insects are tiny (the size of the head of a pin) and are found on opuntia cactus plants. e environs around La Antigua Guatemala were once a major production zone of this red dye after the Spanish conquest. But today most cochinilla insects are bred in Oaxaca, Mexico and in the Canary Islands. ...continued page 70 Sharing our knowledge of ora and fauna in Mayan utilitarian use, hieroglyphics, iconography, religion, diet, and mythology is one of the projects of the FLAAR Reports.

But biologists indicate that this insect can also live on Jatropha curcas trees (physic nut) and various species of acacia. It was absolutely fascinating to see the insects; most live under a tent of white powder-like material. When you harvest the insects, you clean o the white surface layer, and you then see that the insects are a nice light orange color. ey do not bite or sting, nor are they otherwise aggressive. While we were in Rabinal, Gustavo Gallegos produced a video about the insects and preparation of the varnish. Camila Morales wrote a report on the trip, with comments on preparing the insect fat and then applying it to the gourds. Both the video and this report will be available at www. maya-ethnozoology.org. e lacquer insect is called cochinilla in Spanish and cochineal in English.

His photographs are taken with a small Leica M with standard lenses, which necessitates that he be within a few feet of his subject. is actual physical closeness intensies the sense of intimacy felt by the viewer. e collaboration between Santiago and Christine began several years ago when they produced Portraits of Quality for Anacafe, the Guatemalan coee growers association. Santiagos black and white photographs show the viewer the men and women, often worn from sun and work, who farm the elds and run the coee mills. Christines written descriptions of the subjects and the coee-growing process ll out the picture. Other Latin American photojournalism by Santiago has included his documentation of the Warao tribe in the Orinoco River delta, as well as the lives of Guatemalan refugees returning home from Mexico.

80 I highly recommend that your dog sleep inside the house at night. No matter what your reasons for wanting your dog outside at night, I believe there are many more good reasons for keeping him inside with you. e usual logic cited for keeping a dog outside is security. Dogs are considered to be useful as an early warning system by barking and thereby announcing that thieves are attempting to trespass on your property. In Guatemala, most neighborhoods have a lot of noise at night. Unfortunately, your dog has no idea that you only want him to bark at intruders, and lacking a common language, you will nd it quite dicult to explain this to him. us, your dog will bark at pretty much any sound or movement at night. is includes cats or rodents on a roof or wall (or on a neighbors roof or wall), reworks, a siren, any passing person, car, bicycle, dog, bird, bat, clouds drifting over the moon, wind rustling tree branchesyou get the idea. is random barking generally achieves several things. Usually, the barking dog sets o a chain reaction, and the whole area is subjected to a bunch of dogs barking at other dogs barking. Over time, you learn to ignore the barking. So if an intruder actually does come over the wall, you are most likely not to pay attention to your dogs warning. Few people can really sleep soundly when a dog is barking outside their window (and the dog, obviously, is not sleeping much either), so you end up tired and sleep deprived. If you dont respond by coming out to see what the ruckus is about, your dog may escalate the barking in pure frustration; he is trying to warn you about something he perceives is dangerous, and you are not listening to him! e barking is probably keeping your neighbors up, too. An even more persuasive reason to keep your dog inside with you is that an intruder can silence your dog in the yard very quickly by tossing poisoned bait to it. Dont kid yourself that you can poison-proof your dog to ignore food tossed into the yard. You cant. You could end up with a dead dog and a break-in. If you are really interested in security, keep the dog inside with you ...cont. page 108PE T S by Linda GreenWhere Should Sleeping Dogs Lie?

94 From many viewpoints in Guatemalas western Highlands, the Volcn Santa Mara stands like a sentinel overlooking its kingdom. Wrapped in a vortex of clouds, the volcano is a constant reminder to the population of Quetzaltenango and environs of its eruption a century ago that almost completely destroyed Guatemalas second largest city. Yet today, Santa Mara stands as one of the most rewardingand dicultclimbs in all of Central America. Soon after moving to Guatemala, I signed up to climb Quetzaltenangos Mount Olympus. e ascent was brutal, less leisurely hike and more clawing your way up a cli face. e task is complicated by how high youre going: Quetzaltenango alone sits at 7,500 ft., and over the next three to ve hours youll be scaling another 5,000 ft. It doesnt help that you will probably be passed by lines of Maya women wearing plastic sandals, balancing packages on their heads. is happened a few times while I was bent over sucking air, and was reminded of getting passed years earlier by a Girl Scout troop while climbing Half Dome in Yosemite National Park. Neither were my proudest moments. ose same women will most likely be heading to the summit for a religious ceremony combining ancient Mayan traditions, Roman Catholicism or Pentecostal worship into a unique combination often called costumbre. e circles of chanting women form part of Guatemalas incredible cultural tapestry, and are unforgettable to witness.

For every animal adopted, more and more take their place. Its so easy to rescue an animal. Next comes the hard part: these dogs and cats (of all ages, in all manner of condition) need medical attention, spay ing/neutering, vaccinating, they need to be housed and comforted, fed and walked, brushed many will live out their lives at Hound Heights, cared for by human kindness and generosity.

108 at night, preferably in the same room you sleep in. If the dog is inside the house, he cant be poisoned. Your dogs hearing is incredibly sensitive. He will hear the sound of a break in and begin barking. e intruder will be left with the doubt as to where the barker is and how big it is. He will also know that he has lost any element of surprise. is is a much bigger deterrent than a dog loose in a yard. Another benet is that although your dog hears so much more than you do, when he is inside the house he is much less likely to hear or see the cat on the fence and bark at it. Dogs also watch our body language and take cues from us. If they see that we are not interested in or alarmed by the bell on the bicycle passing outside, they quickly learn to ignore the sound and not bark. So you will both sleep better, and if your dog does bark and wake you, it is probably worth getting up and checking. Finally, from the dogs point of view, being inside with you only strengthens his bond to you and your family and increases his feeling of belonging and his desire to protect you. Dogs are not solitary animals. ey gravitate to other dogs and to people. Especially if you only have one dog, sleeping alone outside and away from you is very hard for him. Some of the best time I spend with my dogs is with them curled up at my feet while I watch TV, read a book, or work on the computer. Knowing that my dog is near my bed at night makes me feel secure, and being close to me makes my dog feel secure, too. Given his own free choice, your dog would choose to sleep on a mat or pad near youwhy not try it? I bet you will never put your dog outside for the night again. Sleeping Dogs cont. from page 80ALERTsubmitted by M.L and W.T Debit Cards Compromised, AGAIN is past year, there were many reports of bank fraud in Guatemala involving ATM debit cards. Locals and visitors alike were victimized. e result: Computer-savvy thieves garnered millions of dollars from bank accounts worldwide. In November the Banco de Amrica Central ATM in La Antigua Guatemala was struck again. We were among the victims; our account was cleaned out in a day. BAC ocials are pledging to investigate and reimburse account holdersbut only after 35 business days! Until thief-proof safeguards are instituted, please avoid using BAC ATM machines! Money may be the husk of many things but not the kernel. It brings you food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; acquaintance, but not friends; servants, but not loyalty; days of joy, but not peace or happiness. Henrik Ibsen
