Daniel Brooks and his wife, Lynell, watched as those gathered rose to give their daughter, Christine, a standing ovation for being promoted to be the new executive director of Mika. Back in the mid-1980s, when Christine Brooks was just a little girl, her dad would teach her real-life lessons.

Mexican Independence Day is considered to be one of the largest celebrations of its kind in the world. Every Sept. 16, hundreds of thousands of people gather in the capital city’s zocalo — or city center — to hear the president proclaim independence, or Grito de Dolores — the Cry of Dolores. The event commemorates the battle cry of Miguel Hidalgo on Sept. 16, 1810, the day Mexico declared its independence from Spain. Hoover High School junior Claudia Gonzalez, president of the school’s La Voz Latina Club, gave a five-minute presentation to her classmates Friday on the holiday’s significance.

At a time when our country is forced witness the almost daily displays of greed and corruption in both our political and business leadership, it should not be surprising that even our local elected officials gotten into the act of fleecing the public. [City Councilman Frank] Quintero's $200,000 from the city of Glendale is the worst example of conflict of interest and corruption that I have seen in my more than 20 years in this city. As a Latina what makes me angrier is the hypocrisy of politicians like Mr. Quintero, who while running for the City Council last year bombarded me and other Latino voters with an endless number of phone calls and mailers, telling us how he will fight for the Latino community in Glendale.
