TO GET an idea of the carnage in El Salvador over the last dozen years, imagine a guerrilla war in the United States killing 3.6 million people. Proportionately, that's equivalent to the Salvadoran war's estimated 75,000 dead in a population of 5.2 million.The Salvadoran peace agreement signed at U.N. headquarters last Wednesday doesn't quite end this appalling bloodshed -- four more killings occurred the next day -- but it does lay a solid foundation for further talks in Mexico next month.

Jermin Laviera, an energetic woman with a bright and generous smile, works on the first floor of the Esperanza Center in Southeast Baltimore, which gives her a street-level perspective on the immigrant crisis emanating hundreds of miles away in Central America. Just about every day, undocumented immigrants — parents with children, children without parents — walk through Esperanza's front door on South Broadway. They all need help, and they all have stories — often ugly ones.

CAN A political settlement of El Salvador's endless civil war really be near?Hopes have been raised before, only to fall victim to new rebel offensives or death squad outrages. But the agreement on constitutional reform announced in Mexico City on Saturday could prove more durable.Typically, cease-fires have been painstakingly arranged only to crumble amid haggling about the substance of institutional reform.This time, Government and rebel negotiators, aided by an adroit United Nations mediator, boldly tackled the institutional issues first.

Since she was 7 years old, Donatila Leticia Munoz Orantes has wanted to become a U.S. citizen. On Wednesday, her 100th birthday, her wish came true. Munoz Orantes, a native Nicaraguan who lives with her daughter in Germantown, came to the United States from El Salvador in the 1980s and never left. "It's a wonderful country," Munoz Orantes, who was joined by family and friends at her naturalization ceremony in Baltimore, said during a recent interview at her daughter's home. Because Munoz Orantes speaks only Spanish, her daughter interpreted for her. Munoz Orantes wasn't able to become a citizen until now because she doesn't speak English, a requirement until a resident reaches a certain age and number of years in the country.

San Salvador OVER ALL the signs of progress here, one stunning historic event hangs like a cloud that could shadow the future. Its color is black, the color of the robes of the Jesuit priests murdered two years ago.Beyond the horror of the murders, the case now invokes the question whose answer will determine whether El Salvador passes into the new era of peace, reconciliation and respect. Has the Salvadoran military really reformed, or does it remain at heart the bloodthirsty corps it has been for so long?

Before playing El Salvador in the CONCACAF quarterfinals at M&T Bank Stadium, U.S. midfielder Mix Diskerud had some painful memories of last summer's 3-3 tie with the Central American team in the Under-23 Olympic qualifying team. The tying goal came four minutes into added time and cost the U.S. a spot in the London Games. Diskerud, playing with the U.S. national team this year for the first time, said after Sunday's 5-1 win that he still thinks about last summer's game. It doesn't help that a teammate from his club team in Norway, Jaime Alas , constantly sends him a reminder.

LANDOVER -  As the Spanish national soccer team headed into its final warm-up game before leaving for Brazil, and with one last chance to work out any kinks before setting out to defend its World Cup crown, manager Vicente del Bosque wanted his team to show him something. "The most important thing for us," del Bosque said at his news conference Friday, "is that the 23 players that we have are peaking at the right time for the World Cup. " Del Bosque's side did, in the end, secure a 2-0 win Saturday over El Salvador before an announced 53,267 at FedEx Field.

Julio T. "Speedy" Gonzalez, who had been honorary consul to El Salvador and a successful Baltimore shipping executive whose motto was "My sales territory is the entire world," died Thursday from complications of diabetes at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson. He was 88. "Everyone knew Speedy because he was active in the port and attended all port events," said Helen Delich Bentley, the former congresswoman and chairwoman of the Federal Maritime Commission. "It was a small company but very active.

After Jurgen Klinsmann took over the U.S. national soccer team nearly two years ago, the positive results were not immediate. As recently as late May, when the Americans lost a friendly to Belgium, there were questions about whether the former German star and coach was a good fit. While the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup is clearly not the World Cup in terms of competition or worldwide significance, Klinsmann's imprint is becoming apparent as the U.S....

The atmosphere was electric, and not just because of the thunderheads that hung ominously over M&T Bank Stadium as Sunday's Gold Cup quarterfinal match between the U.S. National team and El Salvador got underway. If you didn't know better, you might have thought you were in Central America, since the blue-clad fans who came to root for El Salvador in the first game of the soccer doubleheader and the similarly-dressed fans there to cheer on Honduras in the nightcap against Costa Rica heavily outnumbered their "USA … USA"-chanting counterparts.

Soccer has long been known for its one-name goal scorers. Fifty years ago, it was a brilliant Brazilian star everyone called Pele. Today, it's an Argentine artist named Lionel but now known by his last name: Messi. Just saying their names evokes images of magic and trickery. And then there is Wondo. Chris Wondolowski does not elicit the same response from even the most die-hard fan - if they know him at all. He is more mechanic than maestro, a player who was expected to spend his career on the fringes, if not on the bench, until he emerged as a goal-scoring machine.

After the U.S. men's national soccer team lost a friendly to Belgium in May, a disgusted coach Jurgen Klinsmann tried to talk about what positives the Americans could get out of the surprising defeat. “I'd rather play Belgium 10 more times than El Salvador for the 100 th time because that's where you learn,” Klinsmann said.  Klinsmann is hopeful that his team, which has won seven straight official games, is not given a similar lesson Sunday when it meets El Salvador in a 4 p.m. quarterfinal of the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup at M&T Bank Stadium.
