TIJUANA BC (Frontera, Luis Gerardo Andrade, 6/6/11) - Two weeks have already passed since priest Salvador Ruiz Enciso, was found dead, said Rafael Romo Muñoz, the Archbishop of Tijuana. He now calls on authorities to resolve the case no matter what the outcome of the investigation. The head of the Archdiocese of Tijuana, said the death of father "Chavita" should not be forgotten. It is also needs to be resolved so that the community and Church can be at peace. He mentioned that so far he knows only that the Attorney General of justice the State (PGJE) has two lines of information that pretend to seek those responsible. The Archbishop assumes the pornographic material blamed on "Chavita" father was to harm him and the Church, however, if it is determined otherwise, the Church will accept it. Fr. Salvador Ruiz Enciso was reported missing at the end of May. He was found lifeless, burned and tortured.
TIJUANA BC (El Sol de Tijuana, Krystel Gómez Seville, 6/6/11) - "Tijuana Wants You to Live" is the name of a new campaign that seeka to join a fight to decrease, from 60%, the amount of young people who are involved in accidents related to excessive alcohol consumption. Héctor Cruz, director of planning of the Secretariat of the Youth in Tijuana, explained the subsidy for the Municipal Public Security (Subsemun) resources for the prevention of crime devised this awareness campaign, where one student will spread the word to his/her colleagues to prevent road accidents. The idea, he explained, is training a group of young volunteers for the prevention of accidents, providing them with tools to generate campaigns or messages that spread among their classmates and friends. "They will help to produce, in their language, programs for accident prevention called “Tijuana I Love Alive". Most are aware of the consequences of an accident; to himself/herself, their family, the damage to health and physical well-being, economics; all irresponsible", said Hector Cruz. Phrases such as "Yes I can take more than you but I don't need to prove it," t-shirts, slogans, propaganda and other resources would generate an impact on the children of Tijuana. However, the intention of this campaign is self-identity, rather than that of either the Government’s or private sector. It helps with dissemination. This weekend, 50 young people between aged 17 and 29 already completed the first training at Cetys University. They addressed the prevention of vehicle accidents. The planning director of the Secretariat of Youth described high levels of alcohol behind the wheel of the car as a serious problem. 60% of vehicle accidents in the city have to do with a drunk driver. That percentage must be lowered. "We hope these 50 graduates are agents of change,” he concluded.
