DIARIO/LA PRENSA

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative  Body  to  pay  tribute  to
those  illustrious  journalistic  entities  which  have  diligently  and
consistently, year after year, recorded the history of their communities
and brought local news and news of the larger world  to  their  readers;
and
  WHEREAS,  Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly  proud  to  commem-
orate the 100th Anniversary of EL DIARIO/LA PRENSA; and
  WHEREAS,  Established  in  1913,  EL  DIARIO/LA PRENSA is the nation's

of  empowering  Hispanic  and Latino communities through information and
civic engagement for the past century; and

brated  investigative  and  community journalism; in 2005, the newspaper

tions of such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to  our  atten-
tion,  they  should  be celebrated and recognized by all the citizens of
the great State of New York; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
