For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and watching over the way of his saints.

Local representative lobs criticism at senator over Packery Channel, Valley Three angry letters Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison never received speak volumes about the discord between her and U.S. Rep. Solomon P. Ortiz. The letters attack her for favoring a Corpus Christi project at the expense of one in Brownsville. One letter plays the ethnicity card: "I know it's not because there's mostly Hispanics in the Valley is it? No, surely that's not it. I am, however, curious." The "I" was supposed to be a Valley constituent. Ortiz's chief of staff, Florencio "Lencho" Rendon, distributed the letters, intending to find others...

Four women staged a demonstration Tuesday afternoon on a North Brownsville boulevard to raise public aware-ness about the proposed Central American Free Trade Agreement awaiting congressional approval. Hortencia Armendariz and three friends stood on Ruben Torres Boulevard with signs and leaflets to hand out to passers-by about CAFTA and the North American Free Trade Agreement. “We are afraid of the consequences of CAFTA,” Armendariz said. “It’s just an extension of NAFTA.” The group protested in front of the Paseo Plaza Shopping Center and later took their demonstration to the office of U.S. Rep. Solomon P. Ortiz, D-Corpus Christi. Though Ortiz...

Congressman Solomon Ortiz of Texas testified this week during a House hearing on border security saying our southern border is under siege. Congressman Ortiz is co-chair of the House Border Caucus. ORTIZ: I am very dismayed, very discouraged, because we were led to believe that they were going to fund the recommendations given by the 9/11 commission. Now, they came up with 210 border patrol people, that doesn't even cover attrition rates in one border patrol sector. DOBBS: And you before your committee pointed out Admiral Loy's concerns about border security, specifically the threat of terrorism, al Qaeda linking up...

Gentlemen, Col. Peter J Ortriz I was speaking with my father (who is now in his 80th year) when he told me that he had been asked to give a short talk to a group of young schoolchildren about his experiences in the 1939-1945 war. Whenever he talks about the war the name of Peter Ortiz is always mentioned with some awe and respect. In order to find out a little more about him we searched the web and came across your excellent sites. My father was one of the four Royal Airforce Officers mentioned in the sites that Peter...

Ortiz said he was particularly concerned with the implementation of the US-VISIT program. The rest of the story, subscribers only Border Buzz Caldo items also from...

LAS VEGAS, July 8 – The rubber match between Tim Sylvia and Andrei Arlovski didn’t match the brief and explosive nature of their first two bouts, but Sylvia did enough to outlast ‘The Pitbull’ in their war of nerves before a sold out crowd of 12,400 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center. Scores were 48-47 twice and 49-46 for Ellsworth, Maine’s Sylvia, who repeated his April 15th win over Arlovski. The Belarus native defeated Sylvia via submission on February 5, 2005. “I definitely saw myself winning,” said Sylvia, 24-2. “Arlovski fixed his chin because I hit him hard many times....

Big Bear Lake, Calif. — High above Los Angeles, Tito Ortiz is planning his next takeover. Andthis move is decidedly hostile and very personal. The mixed martial arts fighter from Huntington Beach, Calif., always looking to expand his empire inside and outside the ring, wants his UFC light-heavyweight title back from Chuck (The Iceman) Liddell when the two meet Dec. 30 in Las Vegas. Ortiz, knocked out the first time they met, doesn't like Liddell and it shows. "I'm going to take him down, I'm going to punch him in his face . . . I'm just going to...

On Saturday night at UFC 66, UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell proved once again why he is widely considered the best 205-pound fighter in the world when he stopped Tito Ortiz with strikes for the second time in his career. The fight that is expected to go down as the biggest in UFC history ended when Chuck Liddell’s superior striking once again floored Tito Ortiz, leaving the “Huntington Beach Bad Boy” on the ground and being greeted with punches as they rained down from Liddell. The first round saw Liddell pursue Ortiz and after some good back...

David Ortiz doesn't think it's an accident four out of the five major leaguers who have tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs happen to come from Latin-American countries. The Sox slugger claimed yesterday Spanish-speaking players are hindered by the language barrier, and that factor has contributed to several of his countrymen, former Minnesota Twins teammate Juan Rincon being the latest, failing drug tests. Ortiz said many of the Latin players don't fully understand what substances are now banned, in part, because players association meetings aren't translated into Spanish. ``Let me tell you something. My English is not the best, but I...
