A look back at a different world Remembering the Fourth of July

first_imgRelated posts:VIDEO: Barbecuing with Lucas Withington Dueling Anthems: ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ vs. ‘Hermosa Bandera’ Costa Rica celebrates the Fourth of July Fourth of July, school vacation romps, and other happenings around Costa Rica In memory of our publisher, Jonathan Harris, and in celebration of the Fourth of July Picnic whose history meant a great deal to him, we are proud to share a reflection he wrote about his childhood memories of the event. It was originally published in July 2015. We are preparing more information about the life of Jonathan Harris to be shared later this week. Those with reflections they wish to share can contact kstanley@ticotimes.net. Fifty years ago in July was simply unforgettable. Sure, I was all of 6 years old, and had only just begun to have my surroundings indelibly imprinted into my future memory, but if you were around back then you must remember, too. The skies were bluer than they’ve ever been since. The grass was huge and very green in the empty pastures that surrounded the old U.S. Embassy Residence. There were cows roaming the streets, and we all had cattle guards to keep them (mostly successfully) out of our homes.It was a very special day. My family woke early and walked to the Embassy Residence for the picnic, which, as it is today, was held in the morning to avoid afternoon showers. It may have been the last time my Dad had to hoist me on his shoulders most of the way because I couldn’t keep up. If I had been asked then where I would be living in 50 years, I would have wondered why I would be living anywhere but where I lived then – which, of course, is where I live now. A location obviously selected to be within walking distance of the picnic in San Rafael de Escazú.The Embassy Residence was special to us for several reasons. One reason that stands out even more than the picnics themselves was that John F. Kennedy shook my brother’s hand at an event there two years before. JFK had Costa Rica thoroughly smitten, and my brother was no exception: I don’t think he washed his hands for years afterwards. Of course, my mother later inadvertently threw out my brother’s diary where Mr. Kennedy wrote a note to his friend Michael.Seen from the enlightened perspective of 2015, Costa Rica was a different world in 1965. It seems unreal to describe that world now. The country was embarking on its new path forward that had started in 1948. We were very isolated. We didn’t have U.S. fast-food chains. We couldn’t even buy ketchup. My favorite birthday present was a small bottle of Welch’s grape juice, which to me was a fine wine. We didn’t have American TV, and movies arrived years after their original release. Transportation by horse out here in the boonies was still commonplace. Poisoned meat was still thrown in the streets by the authorities to control rabies. All Americans spoke Spanish, very well, and most of our friends were Costa Rican; they welcomed us in their homes, as they were welcome in ours. We were assimilating. The 4th of July picnic was our one opportunity to parade Uncle Sam and the American flag, and invite all our Tico friends to share our special day. Costa Rican President José “Pepe” Figueres embraces U.S. Ambassador Viron Vlaky at the 1973 picnic. Archives/The Tico TimesPresident José “Pepe” Figueres was a hero, not only to Costa Rica, but also to those of us who had adopted this country as well. The holiday was a time to hold hands and celebrate both our countries’ heritage, and vow to move together towards a better future. Thanks to Jack Fendell, who started the American Colony’s July 4 picnic tradition, we continued to live our shared lives and our shared heritage. The picnic epitomized our two cultures learning to live, and grow, together.There were relatively few American families in Costa Rica then, and we knew them all. In fact, it seemed to me that my parents knew everyone on the planet, but certainly everyone at the picnic, U.S. and Tico. There was no visible security entering the picnic except for the very impressively outfitted Marines who couldn’t help playing with the kids. Everyone was welcome, regardless of nationality. No IDs were checked. It was a party for all.July 4, 1965 was a Sunday, so nobody had an excuse to not come – if, that is, they could make it out to the hinterland of Escazú in the morning. I remember arriving vividly. The huge gates are wide open. The crisp Marines stand on either side and welcome you. You are immediately impressed with the fact that you’re walking towards the grandest house you’ve ever seen. It is immaculately white with huge columns around its entrance holding up a balcony. There is an oval drive with a beautiful garden in the middle. It is mind-blowing. Surely even the real White House wishes it looked like this.What a great day to be an American… in Costa Rica. Fun and games at the former Ambassador’s Residence. Archives/The Tico TimesThe ambassador and his family, who, of course, we and everybody else know, make a point of greeting us personally. The adults mingle, which means the kids are let loose to run around. Parents go get a drink (beer?), and walk around in their Sunday best laughing loudly, making us very glad to go and do all the kid stuff there is to do. There are the games – three-legged races, sack races, egg tosses – the same theme there always was and always will be.But I had two favorite events. I think we all agreed. You simply had to get on the oxcart that did continuous loops around the oval driveway, and you had to watch Woody Woodpecker.As you can imagine, it was a beautifully painted, Sarchí-style oxcart led by two huge oxen. The concession to human cargo was rubber tires. The man in charge was our gardener’s cousin, and he swooped me up seamlessly into the insanity of too many other small children in the cart. Nothing much happened, and oxcarts were a common sight back then, but the fun of it was beyond description. It was the Costa Rican version of a hayride, I suppose. You could stay on as long as you wanted, and boastfully wave to anyone you knew, which was everyone. Costa Rican President Daniel Oduber addresses picnic-goers at the Bicentennial celebration. Archives/The Tico TimesThen there was Woody Woodpecker. We didn’t have TVs at home. No cartoons, no Elmer Fudd, Mr. Ed or Bewitched. That was yet to come. But the embassy was special. They had a garage with a projector, an unstable screen, and more kids than could be accommodated in the folding chairs lined up for them, all screaming as the scratchy reel of endless black-and-white Woody cartoons started to show. It was hot. We were all hungry and thirsty. It was loud. It was very, very fun. I can picture every corner of that garage. The rat-a-tat theme song rings in my ears as I remember it.I also remember being told that the Secret Service had brought down the latest Woody cartoons just for us on a special plane.Food was plentiful, and wonderfully unhealthy. As I recall, it was free, and all we had to do was run up to a stand and place our order, even when we couldn’t quite reach the counter. Mrs. Jagush was in charge of hot dogs. But it was very Costa Rican too, because that’s what we were all used to and loved. There were sugar-encrusted churros, little plates of gallo pinto, gallos de chorizo, and tons of ice cream. It was like a Costa Rican feria, American style.As the years went by, I never once missed a picnic. The residence was moved to where it is today a half mile down the road, where the picnic continued to be held for years until it began to be held at the Cervecería grounds. As the American population grew, the flavor of the party changed. In high school, years later, we arrived as usual and had fun as usual, lost every event as usual, and left before the rains came.And we all, whether we admitted it or not, missed Woody Woodpecker.Read more about this year’s Fourth of July Picnic here.

Polls close in Burundi election as president seeks 3rd term

first_img Comments   Share   With some of the opposition boycotting the election and others charging that they were not allowed to campaign, Nkurunziza, 51, is not facing a strong electoral challenge.The U.S. State Department warned Tuesday that the election is not credible.“The legitimacy of the electoral process in Burundi over the past few months has been tainted by the government’s harassment of opposition and civil society members, closing down of media outlets and political space, and intimidation of voters,” U.S. State Department Spokesman John Kirby said in a statement.The U.S. is considering sanctions, including visa bans for those found responsible in the promotion of instability in the country, he said.Many fear that Burundi’s election may provoke widespread violence. Since independence from Belgium in 1961, Burundi has had four coups and a civil war that an estimated 250,000 dead. Kirby said the “fragile progress” made since the end of the civil war in 2006 is at risk of unraveling. The British government also issued a statement saying the poll is “discredited.”Burundi has been rocked by unrest since April when the ruling party announced Nkurunziza would run for a third term. More than 100 people have died in street protests against the president’s bid to extend his time in power. The strife triggered an attempted military coup in mid-May that was quickly put down by pro-Nkurunziza forces.

Government representatives failed to show up Sunday for talks in Burundi aimed at ending the unrest caused by the president’s controversial bid for a third term, forcing the mediation to be adjourned just ahead of Tuesday’s election, the talks facilitator said. Burundi has been rocked by violence that has left more than 100 people dead. Over 144,000 people have fled the country since the ruling party announced President Pierre Nkurunziza’s candidacy in April. (AP Photo/Jerome Delay) BUJUMBURA, Burundi (AP) — Overnight gunfire and explosions kept turnout low Tuesday in Burundi’s presidential election, with three people killed in unrest over President Pierre Nkurunziza’s bid for a third term that his opponents say is unconstitutional.Turnout was low in the capital, Bujumbura, and one province but 16 other provinces had a good level of voters, said the head of Burundi’s electoral commission Claver Ndayicariye. Results are expected in two days, he said. 5 treatments for adult scoliosis Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Arizona families, Arizona farms: providing the local community with responsibly produced dairy Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Sponsored Stories Two policemen were shot dead in the capital Monday night, said Willy Nyamitwe, the presidential adviser for information and media. The body of an opposition official was found on a road Tuesday morning. The opposition and the government blame each other for the overnight violence.At least 170,000 refugees have fled the country fearing electoral violence, said the U.N. refugee agency. Nkurunziza’s critics including his second vice-president, the deputy president of the Constitutional Court and the vice-chairwoman of the electoral commission are among dozens who have gone to exile alleging death threats.Among the few people who voted in opposition areas of the capital, Bujumbura, many tried to wipe off the indelible ink on their fingers fearing reprisals from opposition supporters.Unlike the capital city, a high turn-out was reported in Nkurunziza’s hometown of Ngozi in northern Burundi where the president voted, riding up to the polling station on a bicycle.Opponents say Nkurunziza must retire because the constitution limits the president to two terms. But the president’s supporters say he is eligible for a third term because he was chosen by lawmakers — and not popularly elected — for his first term in 2005.

first_imgViewers see vulnerable Serena Williams in 5-part TV series In this photo provided by HBO, date not provided, Serena Williams appears in a scene from the HBO series “Being Serena,” a five-part documentary. The series offers viewers a chance to feel as if they are getting to know the athlete better. There is the footage, including in the delivery room when Williams gave birth to her daughter on Sept. 1. And there are interviews, including with Williams; her husband, Reddit co-founder Alex Ohanian; her tennis-playing sister, Venus; another sibling; their mother; and Williams’ agent, Jill Smoller. (HBO via AP) by Howard Fendrich, The Associated Press Posted May 2, 2018 12:47 am PDT Last Updated May 3, 2018 at 7:00 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img The first episode of “Being Serena,” a five-part documentary series on HBO about Serena Williams, closes with the tennis great in a hospital bed, about to have a C-section.Just before the screen fades, a voiceover from Williams is heard: “I was terrified. And it was a whole new kind of fear. Tennis? I don’t think it ever felt so far away. And I don’t think my life ever felt so unsure.”That is just one example of the images and words that show vulnerability the world is not accustomed to seeing — or hearing — from the owner of 23 Grand Slam singles championships, someone whose on-court game is built, at least in part, on intimidating power.“Being Serena,” airing on Wednesday nights starting this week, offers viewers a chance to feel as if they are getting to know the athlete better. There is the footage, including in the delivery room when Williams gave birth to her daughter on Sept. 1. And there are interviews, including with Williams; her husband, Reddit co-founder Alex Ohanian; her tennis-playing sister, Venus; another sibling; their mother; and Williams’ agent, Jill Smoller.The debut episode is titled “Fear.” The other episode provided to reviewers is called “Strength.”Those first two installments mainly focus on Williams’ pregnancy, her difficult childbirth and her thoughts on motherhood.“There’s no escaping the fear: The fear that I might not come back as strong as I was. The fear that I can’t be both the best mother and the best tennis player in the world. I guess my only choice is to live and find out,” Williams says at one point.She cries as she recounts the pulmonary embolism that made it hard for her to breathe shortly after her child was born.There are also lighthearted moments, such as this exchange:Ohanian: “What did you say when someone said that our little girl was going to win Wimbledon in, like, 15-20 years?”Williams: “Not if I’m still on tour.”Ohanian: “You’re ridiculous.”The second episode closes with Williams heading to the practice court, seven weeks after becoming a mom, ready to get her comeback to the tour started.“I was thinking that I could just feel it around. Just probably hit some groundstrokes and see if I still have it, you know? Or need to pursue a different career,” Williams says with a chuckle.She won the 2017 Australian Open while pregnant and has not played in a major tournament since.Her next chance to take the Grand Slam stage could come at the French Open, which starts May 27.“I have more tennis to play,” Williams says in episode No. 2. “I have my life to live.”___More AP tennis coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/apf-Tennislast_img read more
