In 1923, a Russian printer exiled in Berlin published Anya in Wonderland. In many respects, the book resembled Lewis Carroll's Alice, but the translator changed many characters' names, and the nursery rhymes he parodied were Slavic, not British. All of these distortions were deliberate, the work of a young novelist whose reputation for literary playfulness would ultimately rival Carroll's: Working under a pseudonym – and paid the equivalent of five dollars for his efforts – the translator was Vladimir Nabokov. The first edition of Anya in Wonderland is one of dozens of artifacts currently on view at the University of Texas's Harry Ransom Center, capturing the curious path that Carroll's tale has taken since he first told it to Alice Liddell and her siblings on a boat trip in 1862. Other objects in the exhibition include translations into languages from Afrikaans to Bengali, and editions illustrated by everyone from John Tenniel to Salvador Dali to Ralph Steadman....

Chaldeans Hopeful About New El Cajon Police Chief
By David Najor :: Friday, April 25, 2008 :: 20502 Views :: Article Rating :: Law & Order, Business & Finance

California, USA – Less than a week after his swearing in ceremony, El Cajon, California’s new police chief, Pat Sprecco,  has been the talk of the town in the Chaldean business community.   Chief Sprecco replaces Cliff Diamond, who retired Friday and was a strong supporter of business safety and crime prevention. 

"My goal of course would be to address crime issues in El Cajon, to make it a safe and as pleasant a community for folks to live in," Sprecco said.

Chaldean business owners are eager to hear from the new police chief and learn about any new initiatives in preventing and protecting small business owners in the city.  “We know Captain Sprecco, well now chief,  is experienced, highly qualified, and respectful of small business owners.  We look forward to his support and leadership,” said Kalla, who’s family owns Bay Liquor in El Cajon.

Sprecco worked his way through the ranks of law enforcement in El Cajon.  He began as a volunteer cadet in his mid teens, a stint at Grossmont College as a campus security officer for a few year, and a few years later he was hired on as a rookie officer for the El Cajon police.  Public service surges through Sprecco’s veins.  Both Sprecco’s parents were reserve police officers, His father was a reserve El Cajon police officer, and his mother was a reserve sheriff's deputy. His brother, son, son-in-law, and several cousins all work in law enforcement.

Chaldean business owners have long faced challenges of crime in the city.  Many hope Sprecco can bring a brighter focus to the issues and a stronger relationship with the small business community.  The business community along with El Cajon residents remain concerned about the growth of gang activity, broken homes, and school violence that spills out into the community say business leaders.
