Suzie Harrison Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Mexico's foremost photographer, was known as a visual poet whose black-and-white images captured the essence of Mexico's history and cultural strata. The breadth of his work is on display at the Orange County Museum of Art in an exhibition that opened this month. "We had planned to do this exhibit as a celebration of Bravo's centennial year," said Brian Langston, spokesman for the museum. "It turned out to really be an homage, his having died a few weeks ago."

Illegal Immigration: the debate that continues to rage and now seems to center on how many "rights," including outright citizenship, must be conferred upon the millions of illegal immigrants now occupying the U.S. One point is conspicuous by its absence. What is Mexico bringing to the table? Although it has been generally agreed that Mexico and its people are the main beneficiaries of any change in U.S. policy, nobody has asked Mexico to make this a fair exchange. In return for the generous "rights" that Mexico demands for its people who have illegally entered the U.S., Mexico has offered us no concessions.

JOHN DEPKO Rodriguez does it all in 'Mexico' I don't know if any major film studio has ever allowed one single man to write, direct, shoot, score and edit an entire multimillion-dollar production before. But that's just what has happened here. The producers of "Once Upon A Time in Mexico" allowed Richard Rodriguez to take on all those duties in this big-budget attempt to bring his cult figure characters into the Hollywood mainstream. The end result on the screen reflects the best and worst possibilities of this situation.

Former UC Irvine men's soccer standout Brad Evans has burst onto the national soccer scene in his recent appearances for the U.S. men's national team, and will now look to solidify his standing after making the 23-man roster for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers. Team USA has four qualifiers remaining to try starting in Costa Rica on Sept. 6 to try and earn a spot in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The Americans follow that up with a match with Mexico, Sept. 10, in Columbus, Ohio before a brief hiatus that finishes with Jamaica on Oct. 11 and Panama on Oct. 15. The U.S. is atop the hexagonal with 13 points with its next opponent, Costa Rica, close behind with 11. The consensus seems to be that four points are needed to secure a spot which would constitute at least one win in the final four matches with the occasional draw also being acceptable.

My family just arrived back from our annual Memorial Day weekend camping trip south of Ensenada, Mexico. I always feel a little sheepish when my neighbors see me return with my gear and sunburn. No one has ever begrudged me my vacation, but I am aware that whether for economic or legal-status reasons, I am able to travel places to which they are not able to go. Upon my return this time I was welcomed by my neighbor from the U.K. who was invited but could not join us. She greeted me with open arms, and we compared sunburns from the same coastline, different countries.

Three years ago, Marco Pineda played much bigger than his size as a freshman at Estancia High. Pineda, then 4-foot-10, made sure no one pushed him around on the soccer field. Size didn't matter to Pineda, who proved it as a defender with gritty play. The frosh-soph coach raved about Pineda to the head varsity coach, Robert Castellano. One day, Castellano came out to watch Pineda, before he walked away with one question. "Could Pineda perform on the varsity level with his tiny size?"

Defend the Bren, a marketing slogan turned rallying cry for the UC Irvine men's basketball team last season, has already been rendered useless by Coach Russell Turner's Anteaters, who have dropped half of their six home games. But at least one UCI basketball unit can still give authenticity to the phrase. Coach Doug Oliver's UCI women's team defeated visiting New Mexico State, 75-52, in a nonconference game Wednesday to improve to 2-0 at the Bren Events Center this season. It broke a string of nine straight road contests for the Anteaters (6-5)

The key chain isn't really gaudy. It simply says "Team USA," but Corona del Mar High junior Hayley Hodson smiles when it's brought up. Those two words encompass many of Hodson's hopes and dreams. They are most likely part of her past, present and future. In this way, the key chain is more than just an inanimate object for Hodson, who is one of the best high school outside hitters in the country. "I think I got it at the Olympic training center," she said. "I think I also have a 'London 2012' one sitting around at home.

Just how did McDonald get here? He threw all of three passes last year for the Aggies, who went 1-11.
