Shoe designer kicks up controversy

first_imgSAN DIEGO – The high-top sneakers cost $215 at a San Diego boutique, but the designer is giving them away to migrants before they cross to this side of the U.S.-Mexico border. These are no ordinary shoes. A compass and flashlight dangle from one shoelace. The pocket in the tongue is for money or pain relievers. A rough map of the border region is printed on a removable insole. They are red, white and green, the colors of the Mexican flag. On the back ankle is a drawing of Mexico’s patron saint of migrants. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week On this side of the border, the shoes sit in art collections or the closets of well-heeled sneaker cognoscente. On the other side, in Tijuana, it’s a utilitarian affair: Immigrants-to-be are happy to have the sturdy, light-weight shoes for the hike – or dash – into the United States. Their designer is Judi Werthein, an Argentine artist who moved to New York in 1997 – legally, she notes. One recent evening in Tijuana, after giving away 50 pairs at a migrant shelter, Werthein waved the insole and pointed to Interstate 8, the main road between San Diego and Phoenix. “This blue line is where you want to go,” Werthein, 38, said in Spanish. “Good luck! You’re all very courageous,” she told the cheering crowd of about 50 men huddled in a recreation room after dinner. “God bless you!” several cried back. Werthein has concluded that shoes are a border crosser’s most important garment. “The main problem that people have when they’re crossing is their feet,” Werthein. “If people are going to cross anyway, at least this will make it safer.” Only 1,000 pairs of the “Brinco” sneakers (it means “Jump” in Spanish) have been made – in China, for $17 each. The shoes were introduced in August at inSite, an art exhibition in San Diego and Tijuana whose sponsors include nonprofit foundations and private collectors. Benefactors put up $40,000 for the project; Werthein gets a $5,000 stipend, plus expenses. The shoes have kicked up a mini-controversy in art circles. A San Diego surgeon told Werthein that she was encouraging illegal immigration – a charge she rejects, saying people will cross with or without her shoes. The surgeon’s wife sided with her, Werthein said, and bought the shoes. Chris and Eloisa Haudenschild display a pair of the sneakers at their resplendent San Diego home. Eloisa Haudenschild said the shoes portray an uncomfortable reality about the perils of crossing the border. “It’s a reality that we don’t like to look at,” she said. “That’s what an artist points out.” Across the border, several curious migrants waiting for sunset along a cement river basin approached Werthein as she emptied a sport utility vehicle of white shoe boxes. One man already wore a dirty pair of Brincos. Another, Felipe de Jesus Olivar Canto, slipped into a size 11 and said he would use them instead of his black leather shoes. “These are much more comfortable for hiking,” according to Olivar Canto, who said he was heading for $6.75-an-hour work installing doors and windows in Santa Ana, about 90 miles north of the border. “The ones I have are more dressy.” From there, Werthein went to Casa del Migrante, a Tijuana shelter that will receive a share of the proceeds from Brincos sold in the United States. Jose Garcia, 30, eased into a size 10, which he said he would wear to cross the California desert on his way to Las Vegas or Phoenix. “Those are way too heavy and they don’t breathe,” he said, pointing to clunky hiking boots that he tossed aside. “Does it have a sensor to alert us to the Border Patrol?” joked Javier Lopez, 33, who said he had a $10-an-hour job hanging drywall waiting for him in Denver. This isn’t the first time Werthein has tried to appeal to art aficionados and low-wage workers alike. In 2002, she turned a room in the Bronx Museum into a salon, painting the walls pink and inviting the public to get their fingernails covered with work from the museum’s collection. Blends, a downtown San Diego boutique, displays her shoes on a black pedestal. Werthein says Blends and Printed Matter, a store in Manhattan, have sold about 350 pairs. “I wouldn’t wear them and I wouldn’t want my husband to wear them,” said Blends browser Antonieta LaRussa, 28. “But the cause is awesome. There’s so much opposition to immigration. She’s looking at it from the other side of the fence and asking why.” To research the best design over two years, Werthein interviewed shoe designers, migrants, aid workers, even an immigrant smuggler. She joined the Mexican government’s Grupo Beta migrant-aid society on long border hikes. She heard from a Salvadoran woman in Tijuana who said she was kidnapped and raped by her smuggler. Based on those interviews, she added a pocket – migrants told her they were often robbed. She also added the flashlight – many cross at night. Some get lost – hence, the compass and map. “If you get lost,” she told the men at the shelter, “just go north.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Reiner won’t make run for governor

SAN FRANCISCO – Director Rob Reiner said Wednesday he will not be a candidate for governor in 2006, putting to rest rumors of a potential “Meathead vs. Terminator” showdown with Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. “I’ve made a definite decision that it’s not something I’m going to do,” Reiner said in an interview with The Associated Press. Reiner, the director of hit films that include “When Harry Met Sally” and “A Few Good Men,” said concerns about his family and a desire to focus his political energies on passing a ballot initiative establishing universal preschool for California children had persuaded him to stay out of the governor’s race.last_img read more

Nathan Clayberg Named To Prestigious Allstate/AFCA Good Works Team

first_img Vote Clayberg for Allstate Good Works Team Captain DES MOINES, Iowa – Nathan Clayberg, a fifth-year senior defensive end on the Drake University football team, has been named to the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team. The Pella, Iowa, native learned of his selection to the 22-person team during a surprise ceremony at St. Theresa Catholic School Friday, Sept. 14, during his weekly volunteer visit to read to classrooms there.The prestigious award, which has played a prominent role in collegiate sports for more than 25 years, celebrates student-athletes for their extraordinary commitment to making a lasting impact off the field. Clayberg, who is an all-conference performer on the field and CoSIDA Academic All-American, is one of just 22 student-athletes from across all divisions of college football to earn the honor and the third Drake football student-athlete in eight years to be a member of the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team.”When I was nominated, I felt there are so many people that have been a part of what I’ve done at Drake that I felt unworthy,” Clayberg said. “It’s a huge honor. People say they’re humbled, and that’s truly how I feel. I’m glad that I can be a part of things that make a difference.”Clayberg is also eligible to be named the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team Captain based on fan voting through Nov. 23. Fans can vote for Clayberg at ESPN.com/Allstate. The team captain will be honored at this season’s The Home Depot College Football Awards on ESPN.In addition to his participation in Drake’s weekly off-campus reading program, Clayberg has founded not one, but two service organizations while at Drake University. Clayberg created UNITE to focus on restoring the areas of society that are most broken while empowering future young leaders to follow their dreams. “I am a man of faith and I am passionate about seeing the Kingdom [of God] come to this earth,” Clayberg added. “Everything I do is focused through that lens. Right now it is smaller things, but I hope to continue to dream big and make a difference that spans the state, country and world.”As part of the organization, Clayberg helped organize a community service day that involved hundreds of people across six different towns in South Central Iowa, including more than 35 different service projects such as painting, yard work and basic construction. Additionally, Clayberg founded the Next Step Moving Company to financially aid specific non-profit efforts including Students Against Human Sex Trafficking, Des Moines Public Schools and Youth With a Mission.”To get to coach guys like Nathan, I’m the most blessed man on the earth,” said Drake football head coach Rick Fox. “And Nathan is just one of them. That is just who we are as a program. It’s a powerful thing to work with young men like that. This is what we want Drake football to be about.”Clayberg and the entire 2018 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® will be invited to New Orleans to participate in a special community service project ahead of the 2019 Allstate® Sugar Bowl®, where the entire team will also be recognized on the field during a halftime presentation.

Curfew relaxed in Bhadrak

first_imgCurfew was relaxed for four hours in Bhadrak town in Odisha, with no incidents of violence or arson reported since Friday evening. The curfew was relaxed from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Sunday but later extended till 12 noon to allow people to procure essential commodities, even as security forces kept a close vigil, a senior official said. The administration, however, took no chances and extended curfew till 7 a.m. on Monday. Educational institutions and government offices will remain closed on Monday. As a precautionary measure, popular social networking sites — Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp — have been blocked at Bhadrak and surrounding areas for 48 hours from Sunday evening. 40 arrestsAs many as 40 people have been arrested so far for the incidents of violence and arson on Friday, which left several shops gutted and vehicles damaged, Bhadrak PS in-charge Jadunath Jena said.Prohibitory orders under Section 144 remained in force in nearby Dhamnagar and Basudevpur, a police official said. Deployment of security personnel was strengthened at vulnerable pockets and frequency in patrolling was increased.“There has been no fresh violence in the town. We are taking several confidence-building measures,” said A. B.Ota, Revenue Divisional Commissioner (Central).“The administration is not in a hurry to convene peace committee meeting. We are waiting for return of complete peace,” he said.Soon after the relaxation in curfew was announced through public address systems, people hurried to purchase milk, bread and vegetables which were available at a few shops. Traders in Kacheri Bazar came to check on their shops. Tension was palpable in Chandan Bazar, where both communities have sizeable populations.last_img read more
