Manuel Coppola, editor and publisher of the International,says the recession continues to
take its toll on many communities in Arizona. He says the economy in Nogales has been
especially hard hit due to several factors.  One, he says,is the hassle crossing from
Mexico into the U.S., causing many Sonorans to cut back shopping visits to the U.S. 
Coppola says another is the fear of violence in both communities as a result of media
coverage of a few situational acts involving drug dealers and law enforcement in Sonora.
