Thanks to a recent ruling from the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, high school students in the Morgan Hill Unified School District south of San Jose won't be allowed to wear American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. That's too bad. The flags of both the United States and Mexico belong in any celebration of Cinco de Mayo, because it is, at its heart, a Mexican American holiday. The ban was instituted a year after hostilities broke out at Live Oak High School during a Cinco de Mayo celebration.

No one wins when a game ends with the score tied. But no one loses either, which was the perfect scenario for Monterrey in Sunday's final game of group play in the seventh Interliga soccer tournament at the Home Depot Center. Needing only to avoid a one-sided loss to unbeaten Puebla to advance to the tournament finals, Monterrey turned conservative to protect a second-half tie. Yet, it emerged with a 2-1 victory anyway when Osvaldo Martinez scored a minute into extra time. In Wednesday's championship round, Monterrey, winner of the Mexican Clausura season, will meet Group A champion Club America of Mexico City at 8:30 p.m. Puebla, the Group B winner, will play Jalisco's Estudiantes Tecos at 6. The winner of each game will represent Mexico in the Copa Libertadores, Latin America's version of Europe's Championships League.

The Cinco de Mayo holiday is celebrated throughout the United States and Mexico with various fiestas, but only in Los Cabos, Mexico, will celebrants eat, drink and make merry this year with a 492-foot-long pan dulce. The giant confection, containing 600 eggs, 441 pounds of flour and 99 pounds of sugar, is being baked by chef Manuel de Luca to mark the relaunching of the De Cortez Restaurant at the Sheraton Hacienda del Mar Golf & Spa Resort . “We embrace the challenge of finding new ways - like this  pan dulce - to surprise and delight our guests,” said Renato Mendonca, general manager of the resort, adding that the plan is to serve the iced sweet bread ”with hot chocolate, of course.” The  pan dulce  -- a chewy, Mexican bread with a sweet, decorative topping - will be served to hotel guests, Cabo visitors and the community.  The beachfront Sheraton Hacienda del Mar resort has five restaurants and five bars, four infinity and cascading swimming pools, the Cactus Spa and Fitness Center , and a wedding chapel.  De Cortez Restaurant is relaunching with an updated look and menu.

Memo Ochoa has been to a World Cup, played in a Gold Cup and the Copa America and made nearly 200 starts in goal for Club America, one of Mexico's most storied soccer franchises. Yet he says he still holds a soft spot in his heart for the 11-nation Copa Libertadores, Latin America's version of the UEFA Champions League that begins with preliminary-round games later this month. "My second game as a professional was in the Copa Libertadores," Ochoa said Tuesday. "It's a tournament that means a lot to me. And I play it with enthusiasm."

In a major strategy shift, FairMarket has signed a deal with EBay instead of trying to compete with the rival auction site. Under the deal, which takes effect in the second quarter, FairMarket clients can choose to list items for auction on EBay's site. Previously, Woburn, Mass.-based FairMarket had set up a network of auction sites to compete with San Jose-based EBay. Terms of the arrangement were not disclosed. FairMarket launched its auction network in late 1999, teaming up with Microsoft's MSN, Excite@Home and Dell Computer.

On April 10, will we be buying the best candidate or the best pitch? Could we please keep the act of voting based, as it should be, on the person, platform and principles? Campaigns have become merely battles of advertising prowess. Even last year's presidential debates were more akin to infomercials than a true discussion of issues. All voters should get out there and cast their ballots for the candidate that best represents their views. Let's leave the judging of advertising to the CLEO Awards.

Only five minutes had been played before Puebla FC started dancing. Puebla midfielder Andres Olivera scored the first goal in the sixth minute Thursday and Chivas USA lost, 2-1, at Home Depot Center to begin SuperLiga, a yearly event that brings MLS and Mexican league teams together to compete. Olivera found the net when he skipped a ball past Chivas goalkeeper Dan Kennedy and into a hole on the right side. Kennedy was unprepared for the soft goal. He raised a hand to point the finger at himself afterward.

Political parties across the spectrum looked for ways to claim bragging rights Monday after gubernatorial elections in a dozen states yielded surprises but no clear overall victor. With results still being tallied, the outcome so far offered something of a boost to President Felipe Calderon, whose conservative party avoided an embarrassing sweep by joining with leftist parties in several key states. Those oil-and-water alliances stunned the surging Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, in two states it has long ruled: Oaxaca and Puebla.

A month after winning Mexico's Apertura, Monterrey is going to the prestigious Copa Libertadores for the first time in more than a decade after beating Club America in penalty kicks in the finals of the Interliga soccer tournament before a sellout crowd at the Home Depot Center at Carson. After failing to find the back of the net during regulation, Monterrey couldn't miss it during penalty kicks with Luis Ernesto Perez, Walter Ayovi and Osvaldo Martinez all beating America goalkeeper Memo Ochoa.

Closing out a year of triumphs that have buoyed its hopes of regaining the presidency, Mexico's Institutional Revolutionary Party easily kept control of the governorships of Puebla and Tamaulipas in state elections Sunday. But the former ruling party, known as the PRI, was locked in tight races with President Vicente Fox's National Action Party in Sinaloa and Tlaxcala states.

Chances are that nearly every Volkswagen tooling down a U.S. road was made in the sprawling, meticulously kept VW factory here, one of the largest and most modern in the Americas. VW's Puebla operation is no mere assembly line for the Jettas, New Beetles and Cabriolets it sells in the U.S. It's a remarkably self-contained manufacturing complex that includes metal stamping, motor and axle making and composite forming, as well as its hemispheric research, design and road-test center.

A Ventura County jury convicted a Fillmore man Monday of first-degree murder and attempted rape in the New Year's Day 2003 slaying of college student Valerie Zavala. Samuel Puebla, 19, faces life in prison without the possibility of parole at his sentencing, scheduled for Sept. 20. Although tried as an adult, he is not eligible for the death penalty because he was a juvenile at the time of the killing.
