Chuck Grassley,R-Iowa, who worked ona Synthetic Drug AbusePrevention Act in 2012and serves as co-chairmanof the Caucus on International Narcotics Control,said drugs that are outlawed should not be soldin easily accessible establishments such as convenience stores.“Synthetic drugs arelinked to a number ofdeaths around the countryand serious injury suchas damage to internal organs,” Grassley said ina statement. “Teenagerswho might think a productis safe because it’s sold inthe United States are mistaken. That’s why it’s important to public safety tocrack down on illegal synthetic drugs.”However, Havel said, mostof the people hanging aroundZombies are homeless.“When you see the samepeople lurking aroundday after day, we kind ofknow which ones go inthere and which ones aresmoking spice,” she said.“You can tell, they comein here and fall asleep allthe time on our tables.”Another Cheba Hutemployee, Georgia Farley,said she is comforted theraid happened becauseshe believes many associate the sandwich shopwith being accepting of illegal activity.“It’s kind of a relief forme just because we’ve hadto deal with so much stuff I am completely againstthe things they were selling illegally,” Farley said.“It made us seem like wewere affiliated, and that’stotally not what we’reabout at all.”Daily Iowan TV reporterStefan Juran contributedto this story.Latinos in this country,but very little efforts tothose who are U.S.-born,who are the majority ofLatino Catholics at thispoint,” he said.FortypercentofAmerican Catholics areLatino, but only 25 percent of parishes servethe population directly.Iowa City’s St. PatrickParish is one of them,which has offered aweeklySpanish-language mass since 2004.Father Rudy Juarezof St. Patrick’s saidthe parish has workedwith University of IowaHospitals and Clinics,UI law, the Center forWorker Justice of Eastern Iowa, and community members to reach outto the Latino communityand advocate on wageand immigration issues.He also said they provide space for community members.Sixty percent of Catholics in the United Stateswill be Latino by 2050,Ospino said, althoughyounger Latinos are becoming more secular. Thisresults from total population increase of Latinos inthe country despite proportional losses.“If we do not interestLatino Catholics today,the future of Catholicismin the United States willbe at risk,” he said. “It willbe undermined. It will bea much weaker Church.”Juarez said secularism is growing across thecountry and worldwide,and it is not just limitedto young Latinos.“If you turn on thenews, if you’re listeningto the media, if you’rereading the newspaper,if you’re at all cognizantof what’s happening inthe world today, you seethere’s growing, growingactivity far removed fromGod and from church andfrom religion in general,” he said. “I think IowaCity is not any differentfrom any place in theUnited States.”UI sophomore Cecilia De La Fuente agreedAmericans are becomingless religious. She described herself and herfamily as “not very religious” but said she stillprays and believes in God.“It’s not something we careas much about anymore,”she said. “There’s more toyour person than just yourreligion There’s more thanjust going to church.”She said in Mexico andthe rest of Latin America,Catholicism is much moreintertwined into everydaycultural life, which is notthe case here.Ospinoechoedherthoughts.“Not being Catholic isthe exception [in LatinAmerica],” he said. “Immigrants’ children andtheir grandchildren havenever experienced thatgeneral environment ofsupporting Catholicismin Latin America.”Juarez said the Churchwill need to stick to itsroots to combat growingsecularism.“The best way to doit I think is to be ourselves,” he said. “Wecannot be anything thanwho we are and not beapologetic for teachingwhat we believe.”Putin: Russian troops pulled backBy PETER LEONARD andJIM HEINTZAssociated PressDONETSK, Ukraine —Russian President VladimirPutin softened his tone inthe confrontation with theWest on Wednesday, declaring that Russia has pulledits troops away from theUkrainian border and calling for a delay of the May 11referendum on autonomy inUkraine’s restive east.But there were no im-mediate signs that eithermove was truly happeningor that they would cool theUkrainian crisis.
