Cuban Five lose appeal, protests build

Almost ten months after defense attorneys presented oral arguments, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals June 4 delivered bad news to prisoners Gerardo Hernandez, Fernando Gonzalez; Rene Gonzalez; Ramon Labanino; and Antonio Guerrero, collectively known as the Cuban Five. The three judge panel reaffirmed all five convictions plus the sentences imposed on two of the men. However, the Appeals Court did revoke life sentences for Labanino and Guerrero, also Fernando Gonzalez’ 19-year term. The judges noted that “no top secret information was gathered or transmitted.” Their cases go back to the Miami court for resentencing.

MOVIE REVIEW Indiana Jones survives

MOVIE REVIEW Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Directed by Steven Spielberg Paramount Pictures, 2008 124 min., Rated PG-13 If we hadn't seen it with our own eyes, my movie buddy and I would not believe all the amazing things that happened to Indiana Jones and his friends during his big adventure with the crystal skull. Indiana was blown up, shot at and dropped from great distances, not just once or twice but for most of the entire two-hour film experience!
