Coordinator Romy Ledesma predicts the Environmental Protection Agency will protect projects seeking solutions for pollution along the border. And Peace Corps volunteers tied into AmeriCorps' network to bring health care to the poor. "It's a program that has a potential of great value for the El Paso community," suid George Walker, of El Paso's public health school, part of the Uni versify of Texas Health Science Center. The Alliance for Community Development, along with the El Paso Interreligious Sponsoring Organization's Proyecto Orgullo and at least 10 corporate sponsors, provides education and culture to South El Paso children. So far, AmeriCorps tutored 50 parents and 100 youngsters. It also gives 700 youths a place to play basketball and chess. AmeriCorps members also started working with at least two of five active El Paso gangs. "More than any single important feature of the program is the demonstration of the fact that El Pasoans can work together to get things done," coordinator Bill Sanders said. Daniel Ortiz, a fifth grader at Roosevelt Elementary School, is a regular at AmeriCorps project in Sacred Heart Gym: "I come to play chess." David Romo, a veteran South El Paso social activist, described AmeriCorps as a chance to tap the university and its resources to resolve problems in one of El Paso's poorest neighborhoods. "Places like Segundo Barrio sometimes just seem like a war zone," Romo said. "There are so many needs." Autumn Smith, a UTEP criminal justice and psychology major, and Jose Ricardo Uribe, a former gang member, are part of a team of AmeriCorps students trying to defuse gang violence in . South El Paso. "I've never been in this kind of environment, so it's taught me a lot," Smith said. ; What: LULAC Sweetheart Charity Ball. Honoree: Belen Robles, League of United Latin American Citizens president.

How long does the preservation last? It depends on the condition of the body at death, the skill of the embalmer, and the type of fluid used, as well as the type of casket and vault selected. In some cases, the preservation may last no longer than a few days after the funeral service. On the other hand, some bodies have been exhumed thirty or more years after the death and are still in "very good condition." of the Body Eventually, the body will decay. "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust." If the preservative lasted for a thousand years, still, eventually the body would decay. We may postpone the inevitable for a while, but we can't keep the body intact indefinitely. Even if we could, to what end? The body has served its' purpose. What truly mattered about the deceased was not found in the organs, bones, and muscles of the body. These were merely the vehicle for the person who has left for a journey with another means of transport. HT Funeral Planning...
