THE BAY AREA NATIVE IS THE FIRST PERSON ADDED TO THE LIST FOR DOMESTIC TERRORISM. Mike Heinback, FBI, says @ 17:31 "Common theme of those we put on list is desire to do bodily harm. Some domestic terrorists rise to that level." THE F-B-DESCRIBES SAN DIEGO AS AN ANIMAL RIGHTS EXTREMISTS. BUT SOME CRITICS CLAIM THE MOVE IS MORE ABOUT EVENING OUT A LIST OF RIGHT-WING EXTREMISTS WITH A SO-CALLED LEFT-WING RADICAL. Christine Garcia, Animal Rights Attorney, says: "I don't think it's a concern of theirs where he is in reality. Definitely think it's political in nature." CRITICS ALSO POINT OUT THAT SAN DIEGO IS A SUSPECT AND WAS NEVER CONVICTED. Christine Garcia, Animal Rights Attorney, says: "These are mere allegations and a hunch at best so it's shocking that he's on the list." Mike Heinback, FBI, says @ 12:05 "Does he rise to stature of bin laden? no. But these acts...most deserving of being on this list."

Rita Sanchez has been a pioneer of Chicana empowerment since the 1960s. In 1974, Rita was the first woman to be hired as a full-time tenured faculty in the Mexican American Department at San Diego State University (SDSU) and in 1990 at San Diego Mesa College (Mesa). By 1976 she was working almost full time in two areas: as a professor at SDSU and as a Ph.D Candidate on a Ford Foundation Fellowship at the University of California, San Diego. At SDSU, Rita pioneered the first Chicana journal -- Visiones de la Mujer. She also hosted presentations and receptions for various important figures in Chicano Studies like Dolores Huerta and Gracia Molina de Pick. Following her nearly ten years at SDSU, she founded one of the first Chicano/Latino art galleries with Mario Acevedo. The Chicana studies courses she created and her 1973 article "Chicana Writer: Breaking Out of Silence," placed writing center stage as a means of challenging male-centered knowledge as the accepted practice. Professor Sanchez has published several articles and one book since 1973 and is working on Love Stories of the Southwest, with her husband, noted historian, Richard Griswold del Castillo. She continues her work on ancestral history and is still involved in the advancement of women's rights. Rita believes that her greatest work of activism has been the privilege to reach and promote women through the written word.

Today, she is also a facilitator for "Hands of Peace," a project of "Alternatives to Violence," leading workshops about creative conflict resolution, self-esteem building, personal empowerment, and community building.

Dr. Reznik went on to become a Pediatric Nephrologist and is now the Vice Chair of the UC San Diego School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics. She is also the Associate Dean of Faculty Affairs and Professor of Pediatrics and Family and Preventive Medicine at UCSD. n 1997 she utilized a grant by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to develop an after school program that included dance, computer games and nutrition education for students in City Heights. In addition she received a grant from the Community Outreach Partnership Centers Program New Directions that allowed UC San Diego to work with its community partners to increase the safety of City Heights. Dr. Reznik is using a 2.5 million dollar grant from the Dyson Foundation to help young physicians learn how to effectively communicate and provide medical care to various cultures throughout the county. Going beyond her love of medicine, Dr. Reznik is also committed to preventing youth violence.
