For Jose Cruz, a 33-year-old day laborer from Guatemala, getting all the benefits of citizenship is not as important as being able to live, work and drive in the U.S. without the fear of deportation. "My main concern today, is having a job. That's the pan de cada dia (our daily bread)," said Cruz, who spent Tuesday at a Southland Home Depot hoping to find work. "I can wait for everything else. " His friend, Javier Gonzalez, a fellow day laborer who plans to return to his wife and four kids in Acapulco soon, chimed in to remind Cruz of the prospective timetable: "You want to wait 13 years?"

In a second-round tennis match at the U.S. Olympic Festival, Tony Lara chased down a lob, returned the ball with a resounding whop and rushed the net, only to be beaten by a cross-court backhand from Axel Lopez. With ball boys not included in the Festival budget, Lara retrieved the ball himself, but instead of putting it into his pocket, he jammed it between the spokes of his wheelchair.

Alberto Juantorena was one of the Cuban sports officials involved in what police called "a donnybrook," in which no one was seriously hurt, at the Junior World and Pan American weightlifting championships in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. The 16 members of the Cuban delegation were walking back to their seats after the opening ceremonies when nine anti-Cuban demonstrators taunted them. Juantorena, the former Olympic boxing gold medalist who is Cuba's vice president of the National Institute for Sports, Physical Education and Recreation, issued an angry retort and the demonstrators began to crowd the Cuban team as trainer Javier Gonzalez and two Cuban weightlifters went to pick up chairs.

Javier Gonzalez says his first major achievement was learning English at the age of 9 in East Los Angeles. He topped that when he proudly became the first of his Mexican immigrant family to earn a college degree. But the honors kept coming for Gonzalez, now a math teacher at Pioneer High School in Whittier: He was recently named among five California Teachers of the Year for 1996 by the state Department of Education, and he alone has been nominated among them to receive the national award.
