attendees, honored guests from the Governor’s office, Assemblymen Mark Leno’s office, the
Mayor s office, and The SF Treasurer’s office. Distinguished guests included the founder of the

We are excited to share the model of the new facility at the event and excited about the media

the food as well as El Norteqo and Clouds Restaurant. Special thanks to Skyy Vodka, Thirsty Bear
Brewing Co. and the National Latino Peace Officer’s Association - SF County for their sponsorship of
the bar, and to Southwest Airlines and Cine Accisn for their contribution to the silent auction.

We wish the Mexican Museum the very best as construction on their 63,000 square foot facility
continues on its way. For more information about the new museum, see

Coalition for California Jobs and The Jobs 1st Campaign
Never before have California's employers and workers faced a more hostile political environment.
Virtually every business in the state is targeted by multiple pieces of legislation ranging from
damaging to devastating. Expensive health care mandates, increased litigation and oppressive taxes
and fees are just a few proposals that threaten California jobs. Workers' compensation costs are
skyrocketing with no relief in sight. And, over 100 bills in the legislature threaten California jobs.

The Coalition for California Jobs is a coalition of small and large business and organizations united to
fight anti-jobs legislation and protect and create jobs in California. The Coalition believes that
protecting and creating jobs in California should be the top priority of policymakers. Economic
growth and job creation are the keys to eliminating the state budget deficit, funding important
programs like education and improving our quality of life.

President Bush Identifies Small Businesses as 'Indispensable Factor' in U.S. Economy,
Announces National Small Business Week
 President George W. Bush today paid tribute to the key role small businesses play in leading the
nation's economic recovery, and called on all Americans to honor their contributions to the American
spirit during National Small Business Week (Sept. 14-20). President Bush issued the proclamation
(see below) for National Small Business Week today, calling on Americans "to celebrate the
achievements of small business owners and encourage and foster the development of new enterprises.

"These entrepreneurs create between 60 and 80 percent of the new jobs nationwide and generate more
than 50 percent of the nation's gross domestic product," the President said. "Small business owners
lead the way in creating new technologies, products, and services. The entrepreneurs who own and
operate America's small businesses are an indispensable factor in America's economic strength. These
entrepreneurs possess many of the characteristics that define the American spirit - innovation,
dedication, and drive. America's small businesses are forging new opportunities and prosperity for
America. Their tremendous spirit is an example to us all. Leading by example, America's
entrepreneurs have made, and continue to make, an indelible mark on our economy.

"During Small Business Week, we honor America's millions of small business owners. Without their
continued contribution to our country, the American dream would go unrealized." The U.S. Small
Business Administration will host a gathering of America's top entrepreneurs to celebrate the strength
and vitality of the nation's small business sector and honor the National Small Business Person of the
Year for 2003 during ceremonies planned for the National Entrepreneurial Conference and Expo in
Washington, D.C., Sept. 17-19.

This year's celebration - part of the SBA's 50th anniversary - also will include a trade show with 175
participants, business matchmaking, business education sessions, a town hall meeting and the naming
of the National Small Business of Year award winner. Other sessions will include speakers from
industry and government with a focus on issues of interest to the small business community. Another
special feature of the conference will be the unveiling of SBA's "Golden Anniversary Hall of Fame,"
where the agency will honor nationally known companies that got started with the help of SBA-
backed financing.


Wells Fargo supports technology center in S.F.'s Mission district
Wells Fargo Bank is quietly providing most of the money needed to open a technology center in the
Mission district as part of the bank's efforts to reach out to minority communities in San Francisco.
The bank is donating $35,000 of the $45,000 needed to open a technology center in the Mission
Cultural Center for Latino Arts at 2868 Mission St. The center is expected to open in late October.

The center will be more than 400 square feet and feature 10 computer workstations where Mission
residents can access the Internet for job opportunities as well as write their resumes on the computer.
The center's proponents also envision residents and students using the computers to further their
education. "Students in the Mission are the victims of the digital divide," said Fernando Rivera,
president of the San Francisco Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. "The most important thing we could
give them was access to technology." The center is the outgrowth of early meetings between Rivera
and Wells Fargo's Lisa Stevens when she returned to the San Francisco market about six months ago
to become a regional president. "We're only as successful as the communities in which we do
business," Stevens said.

Wells Fargo & Co. doesn't plan to make a big investment in Mexico's banking industry like archrivals
Bank of America and Citibank have. "It could make sense, as a natural extension, to be along the
border on the Mexican side," CEO Dick Kovacevich told the RMA Journal, produced by the Risk
Management Association. "What we could possibly do is open a couple of banks on the Mexican side
of the border and test them to see if they add value to our U.S. business," Kovacevich said, noting that
growing numbers of its U.S. customer base are made up of Mexican nationals. In a wide-ranging
interview with the narrowly circulated publication, Kovacevich also shared his thoughts on recent
corporate-accounting scandals. "It is, quite frankly, shocking to see so many instances of outright
fraud in corporate America," he said. "Corporate America has been taken to the woodshed, and for
good reason."

Statement of U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer on Mexican Independence Day 2003
On September 16th we celebrate Mexican Independence Day. Along with the birth of a great nation,
this holiday honors the cause of liberty and freedom for all people. Like the 4th of July, the 16th of
September marks the beginning not the end of a long struggle for independence. On that day in
1810, Father Miguel Hidalgo issued his famous Grito de Dolores ( Cry of Dolores ), calling on his
fellow Mexicans to rise up against the colonial power of Spain.
Announcing that the moment of our freedom has arrived; the hour of our liberty has struck, Father
Hidalgo concluded his address with the revolutionary cry of Viva Mexico! Viva la
independencia! The crowd that had gathered in Dolores echoed his cry and took up the cause. The
fight for Mexican independence was long and difficult. Father Hidalgo and thousands of others gave
their lives in the ten-year struggle for freedom.

Each year at this time, their stirring cry is repeated by citizens all across Mexico and by freedom-
loving people all over the world. And so, as a good friend and neighbor of Mexico, I too wish to say
“Viva Mexico! Viva la independencia!”


SBA Spanish Language Web Site Offers Online Course For Entrepreneurs
The U.S. Small Business Administration is offering an interactive online course for Spanish-speaking
entrepreneurs on its Spanish language Web site, www.negocios.gov.

The 9-session interactive course - titled "My Own Business" - was developed by My Own Business,
Inc., a nonprofit firm founded in 1992 by a successful entrepreneur to develop and provide educational
materials on entrepreneurship. The courses cover such topics as writing a business plan, marketing
and e-commerce, and are offered through a joint effort between the SBA and My Own Business Inc.
to provide a free, comprehensive online entrepreneurship course for small business owners and
aspiring entrepreneurs.

"We are very happy to provide this valuable educational tool on our Spanish language Web site," said
SBA Administrator Hector V. Barreto. "These courses help a prospective entrepreneur walk through
the initial steps as they are getting ready to start their business. By taking the time to prepare
themselves with training like this, entrepreneurs can better ensure the success of their businesses in the
long term."

The SBA established its Spanish language Web site a year ago. The site contains information about
SBA programs and services and provides a wide range of useful information for entrepreneurs. Since
its inception, the Web site has logged almost 3 million hits with the number of visitors steadily
growing.

My Own Business, Inc., a nonprofit 501(c)(3) company, was founded by Phil Holland after the 1992
riots in Los Angeles. The successful founder of Yum Yum Donut Shops in 1970, Holland established
My Own Business, Inc., to share his expertise and experience in creating successful entrepreneurial
businesses with people in economically distressed neighborhoods. Yum Yum Donut Shops grew from
a one-shop operation to become the largest privately owned chain of donut shops in the United States.

Injury and Illness Prevention Program Requirements
A new provision Section 47, amending LC 6401.7 requires each insurer to review each insured’s IIPP
within 4 months of policy inception. The reviewer, who must be an independent licensed California
professional engineer, certified safety professional, or certified IH, must determine whether the
insured has implemented all required components of an IIPP and evaluate their effectiveness,
including the training component. Requires the reviewer to prepare a detailed written report including
findings and recommendations.
