LIB OF FL HISTORY PO BOX 117007
205 SMA UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
GAINESVILLE FL 32611-7007


This week we continue our 2005
Year in review column...
July 1
SMonday is July 4, America's Indepen-
dence Day. We hope that between spend-
ing time with the family, cooking out,
going to the beach, watching parades and
fireworks that you will reflect on those
who are willing to put themselves on the


front line to defend our liberties.
As of June 29, America has lost 1,744
brave sons and daughters in the war in Iraq.
July 8
The Greater Tampa Chamber of
Commerce has become too fearful to take
a leadership role in our community. The
chamber is more worried about keeping
its funding coming from the county and


city than to take positions that could ben-
efit Tampa's business community.
One example is the chamber's han-
dling of the County Commission's exercise
in gay bashing. At first the chamber had
no comment, then after a week of care-
ful consideration the chamber makes
a statement about diversity but fails
to condemn the county's actions. Why?
Because the chamber gets $361,000 from
the gay bashers.
Another example.of the chamber's fear
its refusal to lead a delegation to Cuba to
develop trade relations. We asked Kim
Scheeler, director of the chamber, why
the chamber would not go to Cuba if the
visit could foster exports from the Port of
Tampa to Cuba. He told us the chamber
did not want to offend Governor Bush,
who is against all contact with Cuba.
July 15
We read an article recently in the


Times-Picayune that reminded us what
the fight is about. Early in June there was
a leak on the Amerada Hess Corporation
oil platform two and one-half miles off the.
coast of Louisiana. While the rig was not
manned due to an evacuation of its work-
ers for Tropical Storm Arlene, it spilled
15 barrels of oil. When it was discovered,
the authorities immediately sent out the
skimmer boats to corral the spill, but they
were too late.
The oil washed up on an island that is
part of Breton National Wildlife Refuge.
Over 1,000 birds were contaminated from
oily waters near shore and in the marsh.
Many of them were brown pelicans. The
state has fenced off many of the contami-
nated areas while they assess the damage
and figure out how to clean it up. There
is no estimate on how long the clean-up

COLOMBIA
Las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia, FARC,
dinamitaron e incendiaron ocho pozos petroleros, fracturaron tres
oleoductos y derribaron seis torres conductoras de electricidad en
el departamento de Putumayo, en limits con Ecuador y Peru. La
escalada terrorist, que mantiene a oscuras a ocho de los 13 muni-
cipios de Putumayo, incluidaMocoa, la capital, comenz6 enlanoche
del pasado 30 de diciembre y en la madrugada de ayer continue
con el derribamiento de otras tres torres. La guerrilla tambien ha
incendiado vehiculos en las carreteras de Putumayo para sembrar
el terror e impedir el alto trafico de fin de afio y ocasionado el de-
rrame de mns de 10 mil barriles de petr6leo.
BRASIL
El president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva reiter6 que Brasil man-
tendra su political extema con 6nfasis en los paises del tercermundo
y en especial con sus vecinos, inform el canciller Celso Amorim. Ese
enfasis no significa abandonar la fuerte relaci6n que mantiene con
Estados Unidos y el mundo industrializado y, al contrario, puede
llevarlo a facilitar el dialogo entire Washington y Venezuela o Bolivia,
si fuere el caso, dijo, citado este jueves por el diario O Estado de S.
Paulo. "Siempre que podamos conversary ayudar, el president Lula
lo har. Yalo hizo en el pasado ylo hard en el future siempre que eso
(una mediaci6n) sea bien visto por ambos lados", dijo poco despu6s
de una reunion del president con 70 embajadores brasilefos.
BOLIVIA
El president electo Evo Morales controlara una mayoria
c6moda en la Camara de Diputados pero sera minoria en el
Senado, seglin los resultados finales de la Corte Nacional Elec-
toral (CNE). En las elecciones celebradas el 18 de diciembre,
Morales logr6 mayoria absolute con el 53,74% de los votos
frente a su adversario el ex president conservador Jorge
Quiroga quien obtuvo el 28,59% de los votos. El acaudalado
empresario -del cemento Samuel Doria Medina, de centro,
se ubic6 en tercer lugar con el 7,79%, mientras que el hijo
de inmigrantes japoneses Michiaki Nagatani del hist6rico
Movimiento Nacionalista Revolucionario (MNR), tambien de
centro, logr6 el cuarto puesto 6,46%. Con esos porcentaje el
partido de Morales, el Movimiento al Socialismo (MAS) tendra
72 diputados de los 130 y 12 senadores de los 27.

CHILE
Una encuestarealizada en esta capital da el triunfo a la can-
didata oficialista Michelle Bachelet con el 48.7 por ciento contra
el 40 por ciento del representante derechista Sebastian Pifiera,
en la segunda vuelta por la presidencia de Chile a realizarse
dentro de 10 dias. El sondeo fue efectuado a 1,200 personas por
la consultora Imaginaccin del ex ministry de la coalici6n gober-
nante Enrique Correa. Los dos candidates, la socialist Michelle
Bachelet y el derechista Sebastian Pifiera, intentaron anoche
captar a los votantes indecisos al sostener un crucial debate por
television, a 10 dias de la segunda vuelta electoral.

PERU
Perui llam6 a su embajador en Caracas el jueves en
protest por lo que calific6 de injerencia en sus asuntos
interns, luego que el president venezolano Hugo ChAvez
demostrara claro apoyo al candidate presidential peruano
Ollanta Humala. "Con relaci6n a las declaraciones efectua-
das ayer por el Presidente de Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, que
constituyen una injerencia en los asuntos interns del Perit,
el Gobierno peruano ha llamado en consult a su Emba-
jador en Venezuela, Carlos Urrutia", dice un comunicado
del Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores de Lima. Humala,
un politico nacionalista.que ha surgido en las encuestas re-
cientemente, apareci6 sorpresivamente en Caracas el martes
en una ceremonia en que Ch&vez felicit6 al president electo
boliviano Evo Morales.
CUBA
El president electo de Bolivia, Evo Morales, concluy6 ayer
una visit de 24 horas a Cuba, en la cual obtuvo apoyo medico y
educational para su pais y, a contrapelo de Washington, reafirm6
su amistad con Fidel Castro y el mandatario venezolano Hugo
Chavez. "Estoy seguro de que Fidel y Chavez son comandantes
de las fuerzas libertarias de America para liberar a America y al
mundo", dijo Morales en conferencia de prensa, en presencia-de
j6venes de su pais que estudian medicine en Cuba, asi como
parlamentarios y dirigentes sociales que lo acompafiaron. En
su visit relAmpago, en la que recibi6 honors de jefe de Estado,
Morales converse con Castro en dialogo interrumpido por una
conversaci6n telef6nica de ambos con Ch&vez.

Mientras que en otras latitudes, los palestinos derriban part del muro que los
separa de Egipto en la ciudad de Rafah, permitiendo el acceso libre a zonas antes
controladas, y en el pasado se ha visto la caida del gran Muro de Berlin, los con-
gresistas estadounidenses, de manera anacr6nica, aprobaron un proyecto de ley
que autoriza la construcci6n de un muro de casi 3,200 kil6metros en la frontera
con Mexico. Este proyecto sobre seguridad fronteriza aprobado por la CAmara de
Representantes es "inviable, descabellado e injusto" para empresarios y traba-
jadores, declare el president de la mayor organizaci6n empresarial de Estados
Unidos y agreg6 que, "El proyecto amenaza a los empresarios con convertirlos en
delincuentes y a los trabajadores en criminalss, dijo Thomas J. Donohue, presi-
dente de la Camara de Comercio de Estados Unidos, que agrupa atres millones de
empresarios, 850 asociaciones comerciales y opera en 91 paises. Indic6 que los
empresarios no tienen problema si se incrementa el control de las fronteras o si
se establecen "requerimientos razonables" para que los empleadores verifiquen
el status laboral de quienes van a contratar. El proyecto, aprobado el mes pasado
y que esti en camino del Senado para su debate posiblemente en febrero, impone
sanciones a los empresarios que den trabajo a indocumentados y convierte en un
delito la permanencia illegal de un extranjero en Estados Unidos. "Estados Unidos
no puede estar pensando en construir un muro de Berlin alrededor de su terri-
torio y dedicar todo un ejercito para vigilarlo", dijo Donohue. "Elmundo nos esta
mirandoy no nos toma en serio".


S61o una Resolucion en el 2006: Dormir Bien


(viene de la pagina 1)
entemente conectados con la
realidad de todo el planet y
hasta de la Galaxia, s61o ase-
guran que nuestro propio ritmo
circardiano y sentido del paso.
del tiempo se vean afectados.
De manera excruciante va-
mos empujando nuestro tiempo
libre y de absolute ocio,-hacia el
abismo del compromise contrac-
tual para estar siempre ocupa-
dos, haciendo algo, trabajando,
,aprendiendo, frecuentemente
cosas innecesarias, o simple-
mente produciendo.
Las consecuencias pueden
ser devastadoras cuando se
liega al extreme de robarle
espacio al sagrado y necesario
tiempo dedicado antafto, para
dormir, relajarse y recargarse
fisica y emocionalmente.
He escuchado, en las refle-
xiones de sus vidas, de grandes
personalidades, como los escri-
tores Gabriel Garcia Marquez,
y Mario Vargas Llosa, que si
pudieran devolver sus vidas,
tratarian de dormir menos y
vivir m&s.
Naturalmente, estas ob-
servaciones de personas tan
exitosas siembran la duda en
aquellos, que como yo, venera-
mos el transitar pausado de los
dias y guardamos un profundo
respeto por los arrianeceres y
atardeceres prolongados.
Ante el dilema de c6mo vivir
este afio, mientras muchos
tratan de ser series en sus
resoluciones del afio nuevo,
viene la pregunta de que tanto
tiempo adicional vamos a
necesitar para completarlas.
El tiempo dedicado al suerio,
segin una encuesta reciente
de una universidad americana,
entire 5000 individuos a traves
del pais, revel6 que el promedio
de horas de suefio es menos
de 7 horas diarias. Aunque las
necesidades de dormir varian
de acuerdo con la edad, sexo y
condici6n fisica o de salud es
claro, que se esta deprivando


el organism de al mienos 2 o 3
horas diarias de suefio.
En un 60 por ciento de los ca-
sos, los encuestados indicaron
tener problems adicionales
de insomnio o problems para
dormir.
Esta condici6n, que pare-
ciera volverse ms .un prob-
lema de salud pfiblica, agrava
afln mds. las cosas en los
organismos expuestas a con-
stantes periods de privaci6n
de aquel elusive profundo y
restablecedor suefro.
Los menores de edad, que
estin expuestos al constant
bombardeo de la publicidad,
los juegos de video y el acceso
a la Internet, asi como m&s exi-
gentes curriculums y horarios
escolares, sufren de manera
*mas direct las consecuencias
de la falta de suefio.
Con todo este cflmulo de
evidencia cientifica y nuestra
propia e ineludible percepci6n
--que no estd equivocada-- que
el Tiempo estd transcurriendo
mas velozmente, no result un


tanto improbable que nuestras
mejores resoluciones para el
2006 no se cumplan, a menos
que comenzemos con la mis
bdsica: dormir mas y mejor.
Una vez hagamos esto, creo
que es possible embarcarnos
de manera mis 16gica y sana
en el anlisis coyuntural de
todas las profundas crisis que
se nos avecinan, nuestros pro-
pios problems personales y
naturalmente las importantes
elecciones locales y estatales
que viviremos en el 2006.
Quizds, haya sido la falta
de suefio la que llev6- a los
Consejales de la Junta Escolar
del Condado de Hillsborough,
y a los del Condado, Storms,
y Blair, a tomar tantasde-
cisiones equivocada el anio
pasado.
Ojald lean esta column y
rectifiquen sus resoluciones para
el 2006, en las que dormir bien
y mejor, sean primordiales. En
el caso del president Bush no
hace diferencia si se despierta o
continia dormido.

El Punto de Vista de Andres Leguizamon


Por: Leonardo Le6n
Se podria pensar, que antes
de expirar el 2005 nos dej6 a
los tampefnos una publicaci6n
mas, Punto de Vista, pero no
es asi de simple, de acuerdo con
Andres Leguizam6n, su creador
que quiere que esta publicaci6n
se convierta en un estilo de vida
local.
Esta dinamica revista en
espafiol e ingles, al lado de los
semanarios, Centro, y Siete Dias
(fundado hace various aios), llega
con fuerza al mercado hispano
de Tampa, ofrecikndonos un
product novedoso, atrevido si
se quiere, pues desafia concep-
tos populares. Su filosofia es de
vanguardia, si se piensa en la
audiencia tampefia.
Punto de Vista hubiese po-
dido ser una idea mAs que se
abandon despues de advertir
las dificultades, pero Andres,
se empecin6, a pesar de los
multiples bbstdculos, en hacerla
una realidad. Y lo logr6.
Andres viene a Tampa car-
gado de entusiasmo, con un
s6lido respaldo professional
que seguramente hardn de
esta aventura empresarial y
periodistica un exito total. Sus
concepts idealistas hasta cierto
punto, arraigados en lo bueno
que se encuentra en el fondo del
lector y de la gente en general,
le legan de su familiar y de su
amor profundo poraquellos que
le rodean.
Escuchemos directamente de
este colombiano, con espiritu
empresarial, dinamico, apasio-
nado por los desafios y respal-
dado por un espiritu inquieto e
intellectual que encuentra apoyo
en su juventud, c6mo empez6
esta aventura peribdistica.
LL: eDe d6nde naci6 la idea
de esta revista?
AL: Punto de Vista naci6 de
la necesidad que tenia de leer lo
que me hacia falta. Cuando iba
a ciertos restaurants o sitios,
hallaba publicaciones hispanas
gratuitas. pero siempre llenas


publicidad, yteniapocos contac-
tos con el mundo de la impresi6n.
Trabajaba con una compafia de
mercadeo y educaci6n, socios de
de la University Alliance, dedi-
cada a la publicidad. Despues de


process de impresi6n. La verdad
es que la revista habla much
del disefo original, que tenia
pensando.
LL: CQuB espera de la re-
vista?


Definitivamente Estados Unidos es la tierra de las opor-
tunidades", afirma, Andres Leguizam6n, director-fun-
dador de Punto de Vista, una revista mensual en espa-
iol e ingles dirigida especialmente a los profesionales
j6venes de laBahiade Tampa.


un afo, a pesar de las dudas, me
dije, 'prefiero arrepentirme de las
cosas que hice que de aquellas"
que deje de hacer'.
LL eCuinto cuesta poner
una revista de esta clase en
el mercado?
. AL: Me ha tocado invertir


S..... ... ..-..

Esta es la portada de la primera edici6n de, Punto de
Vista, revista gratuita disponible en supermercados
de la bahia y "con contenido" de acuerdo con Leguiza-


m6n, su creador.
de novelas, chismes, farindula
y hor6scopos. Nunca vi revistas
con contenido. Entonces pense
en llenar ese vacio. La idea
naci6 alli. Hace mas de un afio
empece a trabajarle al proyecto,
investigando el mercado, la
competencia local y national,
para aprender acerca del pro-
ducto y lo que es el trabajo de
imprenta.
LL dA qu6 se dedicaba
antes?
AL: Yo estaba en el otro es-
pectro del mercado, comprando


aproximadamente unos 10 mil
d6lares hasta ahora. En los
siguientes meses, tal vez, se pre-
senten mas gastos, pero trato de
mantenerlos a un costo bajo.
LL: eTiene socios?
AL: No. Tengo, sin embargo,
unos 7 o 9 escritores, colum-
nistas, un disefiador y la gente
de la imprenta. Trabajamos
muy unidos. Habia pensado
en imprimir la revista fuera del
pals,, por costs, pero como era
la primera edici6n, prefer estar
cerca de ella, controlando todo el


AL: Quiero volverla mas o
menos un estilo de vida, que
sea del agrado de los lectores y
que le league al hispano bilingie
y bicultural de Tampa. Espero
extenderme en un future no
muy lejano para que le llegue a
lois.nuevos inmigrantes que sor ,
profesionales. Ellos, conmo yo,
han tratado de encontrar una
revista, que de pronto, tenga lo
que ellos quieren leer, como la
Revista Semana colombiana,
pero a una escala muchisimo
mas pequefia.
La idea es hacer algo bien
hecho y serio. Todo gira en torno
al la revista, Punto.de Vista, y
a la idea de los blogs [bloques
para comentar a tiaves de la
Internet], pues quiero que me
comenten sobre los articulos
publicados. Queremos que la
gente nos diga: lei esto, y me
gusta compartir, o de pronto,
no estoy de acuerdo, y den las
razones. La idea del blog puede
dar la oportunjdad para un
foro de discussion virtual. Nos
va a hacer crecer como revista
hacer crecer con la gente y para
la gente.
LL: ;Es estf primera edici6n
la que tenia en mente?
AL: Si, esta llena de articu-
los ricos de leer. Como es una
publicaci6n mensual no pre-
tendemos traer las lltimas no-
Sticias. Nuestra intencion.es dar
nuestro punto de vista acerca
de lo que ya pas6 y de lo que
puede pasar.
LL: eEs Punto de Vista
competencia para las otras
revistas hispanas locales?
AL: Si, en cierta forma. Ob-
viamente es competencia. Las
otras, pienso, que hacen un
trabajo excelente, pero para
todo hay mercado, ellos lel egan
a otro mercado. Aunque ojeo
las otras, para saber de cque
escriben y quienes pautan. La
Guia del Golfo es por ejemplo
una revista muy bien hecha. Se
ha hecho un trabajo excelente.
Nosotros estamos buscando un
mercado ins professional, gente
que no este interesado en saber
si Thalia qued6 embarazada o si
Juanes sac6 el filtimo album.
LL: eO sea que su revista
no va a tener la traditional
secci6n de farindula?
AL: No, y nunca va a tener un
hor6scopo o nada parecido.


LL: aPor qu6 la aversion a
los hor6scopos?
AL: No es aversi6n, lo que
quiero es que sea algo mas serio.
La farandula le quita algo de
seriedad a la noticia, y corremos
el riesgo de volveros uno mas
en la competencia. Queremos
ser nosotros mismos, y man-
tener nuestro propio y original


concept. Con el tiempo quiero
involucrar el arte y la mfsica.
LL: LCree que hay un mer-
cado local para esto?
AL:. Si, lo hay, o si no, no
hubiera insistido en esta idea.
Estoy seguro que hay gente jo-
ven que quiere leer esta revista y
esto no quiere decir que no van

Existen nueve nfmeros
basics del 1 al 9 y cuatro
llamados maestros, que son
espiritus altamente evolucio-
nados cuya misi6n es ser luz
y guia de la humanidad y son
el 11, el 22, el 33 y el 44 que

Asi como la fecha de naci-

que cada ser human no es solo
un nfumero sino el resultante
de various nfmeros que salen
del fiombre de la persona y de

letra dentro de ese nombre es
una herramienta del maletin;
mientras que la firm o firmas
que usemos marcan nuestro
destino.
Descubrir cual es el nimero
de misi6n que se trae a la vida
es muy f6cil: lo ulnico que hay
que hacer es tomar la fecha
complete de nacimiento y re-
ducirla a un solo digito y ese
digito mostrara la misi6n cue
se viene a cumplir.
Si tomamos como ejemplo
a una persona nacida el 3
de diciembre de 1.984 lo que
haremos es sumar todos los
digitos de su fecha asi:
3+1+2+1+9+8+4= 28
Y luego reducir el resultado
a un solo digito asi:
2+ 8= 10
1+0=1
Ello quiere decir que esta
persona tiene como vibraci6n
de nacimiento o nulmero de
misi6n el numero 1.
No olviden que cuando re-
ducimos la fecha de nacimien-
to a dos digitos y llegamos al
11, 22, 33 y 44 estamos ante
espiritus altamente evolucio-
nados cuya misi6n es ser luz
y guia de la humanidad. Pero
igual debemos leer el nfmero
final (de un solo digito), que es
nuestro nulmero maestro.

H Solo Mujeres
Por la Dra. Silvia Jimenez


!Extranios Dolores de Pecho!
Estoy embarazada por primera vez y asustada con la lactan-
cia. Me han dicho que el pecho duele much con la "bajada de
la leche". Qu6 me recomienda? Analisa, Georgetown-DE.
Estimada Analisa: No tenga miedo a dar el pecho a su bebe.
La lactancia le dard beneficios a usted y a su nifno. Algunas
mujeres experimentan molestias los primeros dias despues
del parto, como turgencia de los senos, por el aumento de pro-
ducci6n de leche en la glandula mamaria. Sin embargo, estos
sintomas s61o duran unos pocos dias y luego la producci6n se
normaliza con las demands del bebe. Los nifnos alimentados
con leche materna tienen menos riesgo de infecciones de los
oidos, diarrea, problemas'de la piel, alergias y otras enferme-
dades. La protecci6n que le da al nifto la leche maternal no es
s6lo para los primeros meses de la vida sino para el resto de su
vida. Estudios indican que los nifos que tuvieron lactancia ma-
terna, tendrdn de 5 a 10 puntos mas en las.diferentes pruebas
para el HIC (coeficiente intellectual Los principles beneficios
de la leche materna son nutricionales, ya que contiene la exacta
cantidad de Acidos grasos, carbohidratos, agua y amino Acidos,
necesarios para el sistema de defensa,_desarrollo del cerebro y
.el crecimiento del niio.
La leche maternal tiene por lo menos 100 ingredients que
no se encuentran en las formulas artificiales.
-Dra Jim6nez, me han dicho que el "analisis" del cabello por
ciertos laboratories, puede dar. el diagn6stico de la deficiencia
de minerales. Qu6 tan precisos son estos andlisis? Mireya,
Boulder-CO
Estimada Mireya: En los iltimos afios muchos labora-
torios ofrecen el andlisis del cabello para la determinaci6n
de los niveles de minerales y aseguran que los resultados
son fidedignos en la mayoria de los casos. Sin embargo, las
invesfigaciones clinics publicadas, no dan soporte a estas
aseveraciones. Un studio reciente publicado en la revista
"Journal of the American Medical Association", anot6 que los
resultados del studio de un solo cabello por estos m6todos,
result en grandes variaciones en 12 minerales, en various labo-
ratorios que se analizaron en el studio. Es poco probable que
el examen de un solo cabello pueda indicar con precision, la
cantidad de ciertos minerales en el cuerpo. Metodos utilizados
en la.prActica m6dica diaria, como examenes de laboratorio
*(orina-sangre), nos darn resultados mas fidedignos del status
nutricional del paciente. Si desea mas informaci6n visitenos:

LATINOS QUE
BRILLARON EN EL 2005
Con los Medias Blancas
ganando su primera Serie Mun-
dial en 88 aflos, la pelota se
visti6 de gala en el ano que nos
deja. El 2005 fue el turno de las
Medias Blancas de Chicago, que
siguieron el ejemplo de Boston
y con un venezolano sin pelos
en la lengua al tim6n, ganaron
su primera Serie Mundial en
88 aflos.
A este paso, hasta sus veci-
nos de Chicago, los Cachorros,
pueden sofar con un titulo.
La franquicia mas conocida
por su historical de fracasos y
el escdndalo de las "Medias
Negras", por dejar comprar la
Serie Mundial de 1919, quebr6
el maleficio con el peculiar estilo
de su pilot Oswaldo Guillen:
pitcher, defense, bateo opor-
tuno, y velocidad en las bases.
Guill6n utiliz6 un pelot6n
latinoamericano en su frente
de batalla, encabezado por el
pitcher cubano Jose Contreras,
punta de lanza de la rotaci6n
en la segunda mitad de la tem-
porada, y el venezolano Freddy
Garcia.
Otro cubano, el veteran
lanzador Orlando "El Duque"
Hernandez, se puso el uniform
de relevista eri los playoffs y
tuvo una actuaci6n estelar,
mientras que el dominicano
Juan Uribe fue un pilar en el
campocorto.
Las Medias Blancas no se
sentaron a descansar en sus
laureles, y ficharon al serpen-
tinero puertorriqueflo Javier
Vazquez en un canje con Ari-
zona a cambio de Hernandez.
La hazafia de Guillen, el
primer venezolano en dirigir


en las mayores y primer lati-
noamericano en conducir a un
equipo a la Serie Mundial, le
vali6 el galard6n de manager del
afio en la Liga Americana.
En la Nacional, el premio
fue para Bobby Cox, que trans-
form6 el agua en vino y llev6 a
unosj6venes Bravos de Atlanta
a su decimocuarto banderin de
la Division Este.
Los dominicanos fueron
nuevamente los reyes de las
Grandes Ligas y los honors de
fin de aflo se bailaron al ritmo
de merengue.
Alex Rodriguez, antesalista
de los Yanquis de Nueva York,
fue proclamado.jugador mas
valioso de la Liga Americana,
escoltado en la votaci6n por
David Ortiz (Boston), Vladimir
Guerrero (Angelinos) y Manny
Ramirez (Boston).
En la Nacional, el jugador
mas valioso fue otro hijo de
Quisqueya, Albert Pujols, el.
prodigio del bate que ocupa la
primera base de los Cardenales
de San Luis.
Bartolo Col6n, as de los An-
gelinos de Los Angeles, gan6 el
Cy Young de la Liga Americana
en una votaci6n que se cele-
br6 en espafiol el panamefno
Mariano Rivera qued6 segundo,
y el venezolano Johan Santana
tercero. Cris Carpenter fue el
Cy Young del mas antiguo de.
los circuitos.
Los novatos del aflo fueron
Ryan Howard (Nacional) y Hus-
ton Street (Americana). En am-
bos casos, los estadounidenses
fueron secundados en lavotaci6n
por dominicanos, Willy Taveras
(Houston) y Robinson Cano (Yan-
quis), respectivamente.
INTERNACIONALMENTE,
el afio dej6 alegria y penurias
para Cuba.
La novena cubana se adju-
dic6 en septiembre en Holanda
su octavo mundial de b6isbol
consecutive, al vencer 3-0 a
Corea del Sur en la final.
Cuba tiene 24 titulos mun-
diales desde que la competencia
comenz6 en 1938, y la uiltima
vez que perdi6 en un mundial
fue en 1982, a manos de los
surcoreanos.
Pero los campeones mundia-
les y olimpicos recibieron una
bofetada de parte del gobierno
de Estados Unidos, que le neg6
el permiso de entrada a Puerto
Rico para participar en marzo
del 2006 del primer Clasico
Mundial de beisbol, un torneo
organizado por las Grandes
Ligas al que fueron invitados
16 paises.
Luego de aflos de rumors,
conjeturas, ideas y planifi-
caci6n, el Clisico Mundial fi-
nalmente cuai6 en el 2005 y se
anunci6 oficialmente en junior
con bombs y platillos como
una oportunidad para que los
mejores peloteros profesionales
del mundo represented a sus
paises.
Dominicana surgi6 como
uno de los favorites, con su
pletora de estrellas como Or-
tiz, Guerrero, Ramirez, Pujols,
Col1n, Pedro Martinez y Miguel
Tejada.
Venezuela tambien saliv6 y
comenz6 a armar su roster con
nombres como Miguel Cabrera,
Bobby Abreu y Johan Santana,
mientras que Puerto Rico con-
firm6 la participaci6n de Carlos
Delgado, Ivdn Rodriguez yotros
estelares.
Sin embargo, el anuncio en
diciembre de que Estados Uni-
dos le neg6 la visa de entrada a
Cuba provoc6 ira de los dirigen-
tes deportivos en todo el mundo,


y amenaza con restarle lustre a
un torneo que se autoproclama
"mundial" y quedaria sin el
campe6n mundial y olimpico.
En las ligas latinoamerica-
nas, los Venados de Mazatlan
ganaron en febrero la Serie del
Caribe en su propio patio, et
-primer equipo mexicano que
gana la corona en Mexico.
El triunfo de los Venados sor-
prendi6 a muchos, que daban
como favoritosa la poderosa es-
cuadra campeona de Repuiblica
Dominicana, Aguilas Cibaefias,
que contaba en sus filas con
Tejada, Rafael Furcal, Pedro
Feliz y otros nombres de las
mayores.
Los Indios de Mayagfiez,
campeones de Puerto Rico, ter-
minaron fltimos y demostraron
que el b6isbol internal boricua
va'en picada comparado con
los otros torneos ciribeinos,
mientras que Venezuela estuvo
representada por su campe6n
Tigres de Aragua.
Carlos Tevez fue elegido por
tercer afto seguido como el
mejor futbolista. El argentino
sum6 77 votos en la encuesta
que organize el diario "El Pais"
y en la que participaroif mis
de 400 periodistas. Ademis,
se definio al equipo ideal del
continent que tiene al "Mafio"
Anibal Ruiz como el mejor en-
trenador del 2005.
El uruguayo Anibal "Mafno"
Ruiz, tecnico de la seleccion
paraguaya de fittbol, express
a la prensa local que se mostr6
"sorprendido y a la vez orgullo-
so" por haber sido elegido como
mejor tecnico de America del
2005 por la prensa.
El siete veces campe6n del
Tour de France y la golfista sueca
Annika Sorenstam fueron los
deportistas del afio 2005.
Lance Armstrong se sube
poco a una bicicleta estos dias,
y suele decir que.ha pr:rdid.-
su forma tras haber-ganado'en
julio su septimo Tour de Fran-
cia consecutive. Armstrong fue
elegido el miercoles por cuarta
vez seguida como la figure de-
portiva masculina del afio en
Estados Unidos.
Es el finico deportista que
terminal primero en la votaci6n
de los editors deportivos del
pais, la cual se realize desde
1931.
Armstrong recibi6 30 de
los 83 votos emitidos. El-run-
ning back de la Universidad
de Southern California Reggie
Bush, ganador del trofeo Heis-
man, qued6 segundo con 23'
votos. Tercero fue el qiiarter-
back de Indianapolis Peyton
Manning con ocho, seguido
por el tenista Roger Federer y
el golfista Tiger Woods, ambos
con siete.
"Es bonito ganar", dijo Arms-
trong. "No volver6 a hacerlo.
Quizas me dedique al.golfy darle
pelea aTiger".
Tambi6n el miercoles, la gol-
fista sueca Annika Sorenstam,
campeona en dos torneos del
Grand Slam, sali6 primera en
la votaci6n para la deportista
femenina del afio.
Danica Patrick, la piloto que
en su primera incursion en las
500 Millas de Indianapolis logr6
llegar cuarta, obtuvo 17 votos
para figurar segunda. Latenista
Maria Sharapova, la primera
rusa en alcanzar la cima del
ranking mundial femenino, Fue
tercera con cinco vortos,'seguida
por la campeona de Wimbledon
Venus Williams y la golfista Mi-

Inocencia: Atributo que Valora la Infancia


Port Marta Mul6n Romero
Justamente, hoy 6 de enero
terminan los tradicionales feste-
jos navideflos con el llamado Dia
de Reyes.
La adoraci6n de los Tres Reyes
Magos se pierde en la larga ca-
dena de hechos que comenzaron
con el nacimiento del nifo Jesus
en un humilde pesebre donde
conjuntamente con sus padres,
Maria y Jos6, a partir de ese sac-
rosanto dia, integraron laIllamada
Sagrada Familia.
Atrds quedaron para siempre
trescientos tantos dias que poco
a poco integraran otro eslab6n
de un siglo que justamente hace
seis afios inauguramos con el
nimero XXI.
El dia de hoy es mas nuestro
como hispanos que de los an-
glosajones. Incluiremos ademas
a otros ciudadanos de otras
regions de este mundo que al
igual nuestro, aqui vienen, aqui
establecieron su nuevo mdus
vivendi por multiples causales,
no necesarias de citar con mAs
detalles.
La primera edad es la mas Ila-
mada a disfrutar de las bondades
y consecuencias de un pasado
biblico que hacen de su existencia
algo incomparable, dificil de ser
olvidado e inclusive sigue siendo
levado a la prdctica de generaci6n
en generaci6n.
Y es que el amorr no tiene
edad". Quien no sigue teniendo
en sus recuerdos la huella imbo-
rrable de aquella primera edad
que ya vivimos hace...?
Dichoso aquel que en sus
recuerdos, hay dulces suefos de-
talles incomparables que nunca
mas fueron superados. Dichosos
tambien el que al no disfrutar a
plenitud de las fantasias ingenio-
sas y la imaginaci6n creadora de
aquellos adults que ingeniosa-
mente terminaban su faena casi
al amanecer, poco antes que el
primer camello entrara por el-
pueblo, ciudad, aldea, o como se
lamara el sitio donde los nifios
vivian.
Dormir temprano era la con-
signa. Y se cumplian a medias,
porque se dormia con un s61o
ojo, mientras que el otro, como
centinela se abria y se cerraba.
Se abria y se cerraba...


1


La inocencia superaba todas
las posibles virtudes que carac-
terizaban aquel peri6do de lavida.
El respeto, el amor que sentiamos
por nuestros mayores arropa-
ban aquella edad que jams se
olvida.
Sin embargo, siempre hubo
otra cara o cruz!, No todo fue fe-
licidad. Ni lo es ahora. Ni lo serA
en un future. El reloj del tiempo
ha marcado con desatino muchas
adversidades, una inclemencia
desmedida que nos ha hecho


meditar, analizar concienzuda-
mente el dia que vivimos.
Estamos avisados de que la
rutina ya puede ser reemplazada
por un "tal vez, a lo mejor, puede
ser que si, puede ser que no, ire,
iremos, se podra, todo depend,
etc."!.
Protejamos, amparemos y
hagamos de cada minute vivi-
do un paso o escal6n positive,
veridico y leno de optimism
que fortalezca nuestro future. El


Golf a Beneficio de Cruz Roja.
A beneficio de la Cruz Roja de Tampa, se jugara el lunes
30 de enero, en el campo de golf de la base area de McDill, el
primer torneo del alo. La registraci6n por persona es $150 y
la fecha limited es el 23 de enero. Todos los fondos recaudados
van a beneficio del capitulo local de la Cruz Roja de' Tampa
que sirve a casi 2.4 millones de habitantes en los condados
de Hillsborough, Pasco y Pinellas. Para mds informaci6n
acerca del event por favor comuniquese con Caroline Klich
al (813)348-4820.


pasado, pasado fue. El present
es efimero. Pero el future hoy mds
que nunca es un interrogante.
Gracias a la vida que nos ha
dato tanto. Feliz a todo aquel que
recuerda haber vivido la inocen-
cia de y en su infancia.
Ojala este ano que recien em-


pieza sea portador del todo bueno
que la vida puede dar.
Si la vida es un constant co-
menzar con la llegada de Melchor,
Gaspar, y Baltasar, cerremos los
ojos para soflar dulces fantasias
que quizas se consoliden en
grandes realidades.


SE VOLTEA 4 VECES
Un vehiculo Nissan Pathfinder del aflo 1995 se sali6 de la via
cuando su conductor, Jennifer M. Obrian de 21 afios de edad,
trat6 de tomar una salida en la calle 56. Al hacer la abrupta
maniobra el vehiculo se volte6 repetidamente. Algunos testigos
dicen que 4 vaces, ocasionado que los pasajeros se salieran del
carro igualmente. Tanto el pasajero, Michael Duckworth como
Jennifer se hallan en estado critic en el Hospital General de
Tampa.
AMENAZA DE MUERTE AL ALGUACIL GEE
Charles Coleman Adams de 55 afios de edad fue arrestado el
pasado 22 de diciembre por amenazas de muerte contra el actual
Alguacil del Condado de Hillsborough, David Gee. Coleman llam6
mas de 15 veces al tel6fono de emergencia 911 para advertir que
queria matar a Gee y al fiscal del estado, Mark Ober. El sujeto se
hallaba en probatoria por amenaza de detonar una bomba. Se le
acusa de 8 cargos de abuso del sistema de emergencies 911, 3
de amenza de muerte a oficiales electos, pues tambien amenaz6

ARRESTADO PREDADOR SEXUAL
Robert Haring, de 55 aflos fue arrestado el pasado mes de
diciembre despu6s de que su official de probatoria averiguara
que el individuo habia cometido actos lascivos contra dos
menores. Aparentemente Haring se habia ganado la confianza
de una familiar y el 12 de diciembre penetr6 a la residencia y
mantuvo a una jovencita de 15 afios contra su voluntad en el
cuarto mientras que cometia actos lascivos, segfin el report
policiaco. Dos dias despu6s el individuo regreso a la residencia
y le hizo lo mismo a un nifo de 13 aflos. Haring se halla en la
carcel de Hillsborough sin derecho a fianza.
TRATA DE ROBAR CARRO A VIEJITO
Apenas se baj6 de su autom6vil, Armando Corces, de 90
afios de edad, fue enfrentado por un individuo de la raza
negra, Johnny Lee Jones, de 25 afios, quien le exigi6 que le
entregara las leaves del carro. Corces se rehus6 y el atacante
golpe6 a la victim en su desesperaci6n por agarrar las leaves.
Para desventura del fordjido la llave del automotor fue torcida
en el forcejeo y no pudo llevarse el automotor. Algunos tran-
seuntes acudieron en ayuda de Corces y entonces el mediocre
atacante se dio a la veloz fuga a pie. Dos oficiales de la ley lo
encontraron un par de cuadras mas adelante. Jones les dijo,
"estaba s61o bromeando... ustede no creen que.yo le iba a robar
el carro al viejito".
INTENT DE SECUESTRO Y ASESINATO
Una pareja de hispanos, Ronald Andrade y Lenn Guerrieri
fueron aproximados por un hispano desconocido que trat6
de raptar a Andrade en una camioneta y como no pudo lo

Andrade, trato de ayudar pero fue igualmente atacada con
arma blanca. Los dos fueron inmediatamente trasladados a un
centro hospitalario donde su situaci6n es stable. El atacante

de estatura y 170 libras de peso. hablaba espafiol y conducia

La Reina Isabel de Tampa a Bordo de la Ninia Los Nifios Ganadores




i~sv ~ ~ i1 ,. fo i
JL V


Emily Manteiga, Reina Isabel de Tampa (izquierda) y la Duquesa, Alexan-
dria Hamilton, jovenes realezas tampefias, se acercaron al puerto de Clear-
water este pasado fin de semana para abordar la replica del hist6rico navio,
"La Nifia", una de las tres embarcaciones que Cristobal Col6n --protegido
de su majestad la Reina Isabel de Castilla-- utiliz6 para llegar a America en
el siglo XV. Esta replica fue hecha enteramente a mano en un astillero del
Brasil, siguiendo los records arqueol6gicos disponibles. El pasado 4 de en-
ero se despidi6 de Tampa continuando su tour educativo por el mundo.

Preguntas Acerca del Seguro Social


P. Mi esposo me cont6 hace
unos dias que este afio va a
entrar en vigor un program
que nos va a ayudar a pagar
nuestras medicines recetadas.
,Qui6n puede calificar por este
program?
R. Si, es cierto que a partir de
enero del 2006 empieza la Parte
D de Medicare que ayudara a
pagar por sus tnedicinas receta-
das. Si ya tiene la Parte A o la
Parte B de Medicare, tambi6n
califica para esta protecci6n de
la Parte D. No importa cuanto
ingreso tenga.
P. Yo ya tengo un seguro que
paga todas mis medicines y no
necesito otro plan. 6Qu6 pasa
si decide no inscribirme ya que
significa mayor costo cada mes y
apenas me alcanza lo que recibo
de mi Seguro Social?
R. Si ya usted tiene un plan
que le cubre lo mismo o mds que
la Parte D de Medicare, no tiene
que preocuparse. El program
es voluntario, y en su caso no
tiene que preocuparse si quiere
seguir con el plan que ya tiene.
P. Yo estoy muy confundido
con este program de Medicare.
CC6mo puedo inscribirme en
este program nuevo?
R. Cada region del pais
tiene ciertos planes aproba-
dos. Puede informarse acerca
de los planes aprobados en
su area llamando al 1-800-
MEDICARE, o puede visitar
su pagina del Internet al www.
medicare.gov.
P. Yo ya tengo 67 afios de
edad y recibo beneficios de
Medicare y Seguro Social.
6Cuanto me costard este pro-
grama de Medicare que ayuda
con las medicines recetadas?
R. Para el plan regular esta-
blecido por ley, el promedio de
la cantidad de la prima mensual
es $32 ademas de su prima
mensual para la Parte B que
ya paga. Tendrd que pagar un
deducible cada aflo de $250.
Ademas tendrd que pagar otros
co-pagos por sus medicines.
Debe informarse bien antes de
elegir su plan porque cada plan
varia en lo que cubre y en lo que
usted tiene que pagar.
P. 6Serd igual la cobertura
para todos los que reciban los
beneficios de la Parte D de
Medicare?
R. No, cada plan es diferente
y cada persona tiene diferentes
necesidades en cuanto a sus
medicines. Algunas personas,
por ejemplo, pueden optar ppr
los beneficios basicos mientras
otras pueden elegir planes con
protecci6n adicional.
^ t/-i -< '* <- 'j,\r -j. < t, -.t i ,


P. eVarian much los planes
en las diferentes regions del
pais?
R. Si hay much variedad
en los diferentes planes. Por
ejemplo, hay much diferencia
entire planes en cuanto a las
primas mensuales, los deduci-
bles y las medicines que cada
plan cubre y las farmacias que
puede usar.
P. u Qu6 puedo hacer si mi
farmacia no acepta el plan que
yo elijo?
R. Usted debe considerar


esa posibilidad con much
cuidado. Si no puede ir a otra
farmacia en su Area que le
guste, debe considerar otro
plan que si se acepte su farma-
cia. Por supuesto, debe elegir
el plan que mejor sirva sus
necesidades individuals.
P. Yo recibo muy pocos in-
gresos y tengo s6lamente como
$600 en mi cuenta de ahorros.
No tengo ningunos otros recur-
sos ni familiar que me ayude.
eQu6 puedo hacer si no puedo

O Noticias de Inmigracion
':. L Dheoileor ,Ie iiiiii iaion de Critholi, Ch iarities
Por Jose Femjndez

Si Aprobaron La Ley HR-4437
Pregunta: Me llamo Juan Guajardo yvivo hace mds de 25 afios
con mi familiar en los Estados Unidos, asi que ya soy ciudadano.
La semana antepasada escuch6 con tristeza que este pais, de
libertades y oportunidades se esta convirtiendo en un pais anti-
inmigrante. En los ultimos aflos no habia visto una propuesta
de ley como la HR-4437 (Antiterrorism and Illegal Immigration
Control Act of 2005). Si esta propuesta pasara, cambiaria el pa-
norama para todos los inmigrantes, la percepci6n y el respeto
que otros paises en el mundo tienen hacia los Estados Unidos.
Mucha gente en la comunidad esta nerviosa con esta propuesta.
.Me podria informar un poco mas sobre la HR-4437?
Repuesta: La propuesta, que ya es un proyecto de ley HR-
4447, es una propuesta de ley que podria cambiar el future
de este pais y de miles de families de inmigrantes que ya viven
en los EE.UU. Esta ley, no s6lo afectaria a personas que es-
tan viviendo indocumentadas, sino tambien a los residents
permanentes, y probablemente a ciudadanos americanos con
familiares de otras nacionalidades.
Como se sabe la propuesta ya pas6 en el Congreso con
239 votos a favor y 182 en contra. Una de las enmiendas
durante la votaci6n fue el cancelar la loteria de visas que se
Ileva a cabo cada afio. Aprobada para la cancelaci6n con 273
votos a favor y 148 votos en contra. La enmienda que niega
el derecho a pedir hermanos fue cancelada afortunadamente.
La enmienda que le da autoridad a la policia local para aplicar
leyes de inmigraci6n fue aprobada por 237 votos a favor y 180
en contra. La enmienda que acusaria a los indocumentados
como criminals fue cancelada.
Esta es'una 6poca muy dificil para los inmigrantes y es im-
portante que nos unamos y c(mencemos a luchar por nuestros
intereses y aquellos de los nuevos inmigrantes. Es important
que ejerzan sus derechos y llamen, o le escriban a sus Congre-
sistas y Senadores, informandoles sobre lo piensan y sienten
que causari si este proyecto de ley es aprobado finalmente.

Festival de Cine Internacional
EL cuarto Festival de Cine Internacional de Tampa comen-
zard el 3 de febrero hasta el 11 del mismo mes y se realizard

nadiense, Bernard Emond asistird a la clausura del event y
presentard su nueva pelicula, La Novena.
El festival atrae cineastas de China, India, Espafia, Ale-
mania, Italia, Hungria, Argentina, Peru y CanadA. Los bole-
tos para las peliculas, cuyo calendario sera revelado pronto

L' Epifania
A partire dall'anno 1997, in
coincidenza col VII" Centenario
della fondazione della Catte-
drale, il Capitolo e l'Opera di
S.Maria del Fiore hanno voluto
riprendere un'antica tradizione
fiorentina: la "festa de' Magi".
Si sa che il calendario cris-
tiano, in Oriente ed in Occi-
dente, da epoca antichissima,
dedica il giorno 6 gennaio,
dodicesimo dopo il Natale, alla
festa dell' EPIFANIA.
Questa parola, di origine
greca, significa "manifestazi-
one". Si riferisce all'episodio
narrator dal Vangelo second.
Matteo (2,12) della visit di
"alcuni Magi" a Gesf appena
nato; a loro, sebbene pagani,
egli si manifesta come Messia
d'Israele, e, sia pure indiretta-
mente, come Figlio di Dio.
A Firenze, per tutto il XV
secolo, fu la confraternita o
"compagnia" dei Magi (detta
anche "La stella", con riferi-
mento all'astro guida di cui
parla il Vangelo), ad organiz-
zare ogni tre anni (dal 1447
ogni cinque) un solenne cor-
teo con fastoso apparato, che
intendeva, appunto, rievocare
l'arrivo dei tre saggi stranieri
nella piccola Betlemme, alla
ricerca del Re-Messia. La prima
menzione di questo sodalizio
e in un document del 1417,'
anno nel quale la Signoria della
Repubblica decide di sowenzi-
onare "la compagnia de'Magi,
che si riunisce nella chiesa
fiorentina di S.Marco" dei frati


domenicani. Risulta che della
confraternita, negli anni d'oro
della famiglia Medici, fecero
parte tutti i suoi component,
oltre che personaggi vicini ai
signori di Firenze, come gli
umanisti Cristoforo Landino
e Donato Acciaiuoli, il poeta
Luigi Pulci e, probabilmente, il
letterato e canonico di S.Maria
del Fiore Angelo Poliziano

Ad ulteriore dimostrazione
della venerazione di casa Medi-
ci verso i Magi, si puo ricordare
il celeberrimo ed allegorico
viaggio e "cavalcata" di questi
personaggi, che Cosimo fece
affrescare da Benozzo Gozzoli,
nel 1459, nella cappella del
palazzo di via Larga: vi com-
paiono i membri della famiglia,
compresi Giuliano e, probabil-
mente, Lorenzo. Inoltre, perfino
quando Cosimo si ritirava in
S.Marco, egli era ospitato nella
cella affrescata dall'Angelico
con le figure dei Magi; addirit-
tura, pochi anni dopo, (1482),
il filosofo "mediceo" e canonico
del Duomo fiorentino Marsilio
Ficino componeva il trattato
"De stella Magorum".
Nel parlare popolare la paro-
la "Epifania", difficile e proba-
bilmente incompresa, divenne
"Befania" (e poi "Befana"), ed
in questa occasion prerideva
avvio il Carnevale, con cortei
mascherati, che derivavano
dalle sacre rappresentazioni
rievocanti il viaggio dei Magi.
La "Compagnia dei Magi"
fu appunto, a Firenze,
l'organizzatrice di questa rie-


vocazione, per la verita pit
mondana che pia.Tre cortei
separate si riunivano davanti
al Battistero (in seguito, dal
1429, in Piazza della Signoria)
e proseguivano uniti fino alla
chiesa domenicana di S.Marco,
dove si venerava, recitando
testi religiosi, Gesfu bambino.
La "Compagnia dei Magi" venne
soppressa nel 1494, dopo la
cacciata dei Medici da Firenze,
presumibilmente in seguito al
giudizio. severe del Savonarola,
nei confront della famiglia
e dello stesso sodalizio della
"Stella", "creatura"medicea
Ogni anno; (a partire, come
si e detto, dal 1997) si svolge
di nuovo la "CAVALCATA DEI
MAGI", che parte nel primci
pomeriggio del 6 gennaio, so-
lennitA dell'Epifania, da pala-
zzo Pitti; passa da piazza della
Signoria e giunge in piazza del
Duomo, nella zona detta an-
ticamente "il Paradiso", fra la
Cattedrale ed il Battistero.
I "Magi" a cavallo, che in-
dossano abiti rinascimentali
ispirati all'affresco di Benozzo
Gozzoli, sono preceduti da un
corteo di centinaia di person
in costume, cui partecipano
il Calcio storico fiorentino e
rappresentanze dei Comuni
della Provincia di Firenze con
cavalieri, sbandieratori, val-
letti, gonfaloni.

La lettura del brano del
Vangelo di Matteo commentator
dall'Arcivescovo, fa da cornice
all'offerta dei doni simbolici
(oro, incenso, mirra) che i


Magi, accompagnati da bam-
bini sempre numerosissimi,
presentano al piccolo Gesui,
personaggio principal di un
presepe vivente, nel quale non
mancano bue ed asino, giunti
dalla campagna toscana.
Per tutto il tempo natalizio
fino alla domenica successive
all'Epifania, (festa del Bat-
tesimo, di Gesfi), e visible in
Duomo un altro "Presepio" vo-
luto dal Capitolo e dall'Opera di
S.Maria del Fiore a partire dal
1995: in una capanna posta
nella navata central ed ispi-
rata all' "Adorazione dei Magi"
di Domenico Ghirlandaio,
trovano posto undici figure in
terra cotta derivate da original
cinquecenteschi (di Benedetto
e di Santi Buglioni) e model-
late dall'artigiano fiorentino
contemporaneo Carlo Reggioli.
Nella notte di Natale, dopo la
liturgia eucaristica solenne,
l'Arcivescovo, accompagnato
dal clero di S.Maria del Fiore,
vi depone simbolicamente
l'immagine del neonato Re-
dentore.
"Ecco, io faccio nuove
tutte le cose", dice il Cristo
nell'Apocalisse (21,5). I1 Quat-
trocento fiorentino ha spesso
illustrate questa verita collo-
cando la nascita del Salvatore
in mezzo a rovine antiche;
altre volte, come nella "Adora-
zione" del Ghirlandaio appena
ricordata e conservata nello
Spedale degli Innocenti, in una
capanna costruita sui resti di
un edificio classic, dai pilastri
elegant.


Colui che e figlio del "sommo
Padre ed Architetto", come
Giovanni Pico della Mirandola
denomina Dio, e che fa "nuove
tutte le cose", edifica, fra le
rovine di un mondo pagano
morente, un "tempio nuovo"
che e il suo corpo nato dalla
Vergine Maria.
CI SCRIVONO I LETTORI.
Abbiamo ricevuto qualche
giornoi addietro una letter
scritta dal Signor Salvatore
Cagnetto che ci. ha voluto far
present delle lacune cul-
turali che ha incontrato nella

Continued from last week

The Farm
"Has anyone seen Aldo? It's
the first time since I work here
that he is late. Is he sick?"
The forerian, Francaucho,
asked Remo when he came to
breakfast. Remo looked very
mad, as if he had not slept all
night.
"Yeah, he's taking off a few
days," he gritted.
"Whatever for?"
"Fun," Remo barked out as
if it were an oath.
"Fun? Aldo? Are you crazy?
What kind of fun would keep
Aldo from the animals?"
"Girl fun."
"Him? Aldo," the foreman
stepped back?
"You're in for a big surprise.
The bastard has gone and stole
my intended, Generosa."
"Generosa, the movie
star," the foreman was clearly
shocked.
"Yes, and I'll get even when
he gets back I might have to kill
him," Remo snarled.
"Kill him? Aldo? Are you
crazy? Is anything worth that?
Who would take care of the
animals?"
"You haven't seen Generosa
in the nude."
"Hm. Yes. Well, maybe. But
a beating yes, a.gun, a bullet
in the head, no!"
"A beating? Look at me
Francaucho, can I beat up my
brother Aldo? He's a giant.
I'm a shrimp. Where is my
shotgun?"
"Shotgun? No. No. I have a
Baretta, it's better and easier


to fire."
"OK. Get me that, and fill it
with bullets. One for Aldo, one
for Generosa and one for YOU
if you get in the way."
Having set that in motion,
he hurried over to Guiletta,
where he found her translating
the Iliad from Greek to Italian
to English. She looked heav-
enly, pure and chaste in the
bright sun. Without a speck of
make up she looked 10 times
as beautiful as Generosa to
him. Oh, how he longed for
a cool caress of a virgin. It
enflamed him and he waited
for her to open the front door
impatiently.
She opened the door and
rewarded his patience with a
sweet, beguiling smile. She put
her hand to her eyes to shield
them from the sun. She looked
heavenly.
"Hello Remo! My, what a
pleasure to see you so early
in the morning. Have you had
coffee?"
"Yes, thank you darling Gui-
letta," he blurted. "Darling?"
An alarm rang in her head.
Guiletta was innocent in the
ways of men, but she was not
stupid. She read the romance,
novels, saw love movies. Inside
her there raged a fire. It was her
good luck that up to this point
she had controlled it. Even the
love-sick Aldo had only man-
aged one love-sick kiss good
night. She was chaste in the
mind, not in the body.
In her head however, where
the intellect was fighting a los-
ing Civil War with her libido, it
was another matter.


Insid-, she melted, and
came apart all gooey at the
sound of Remo's soft voice. One
look at his handsome face and.
her knees almost collapsed.
She recognized the fact and
knew it to be so, she was crazy
for Remo.
Remo, for his part, felt the
same, but he did not have a
hint that she felt the same.
When. he'd said, "Darling,"
she'd looked as if she was
about to faint, and in fact as
they stood paralyzed in front
of each other she did just that,
she fainted. Right into his
arms. He caught her and fell to
the floor. Guiletta's lovely face
was white. Her eyes fluttered.
"Guiletta what is it? Are you
alright?"
"I don't know. My head is
dizzy, my mouth is dry, my
breath is short and my heart
is beating like a tomtom, and
I am weak kneed. I cannot
stand."
"I am exactly the same. I feel
the same," he gasped, short of
breath..
"What is it," she mumbled?
"We are in love," Remo said
simply.
"You and I," she asked in-
credulously?
"Exactly. I've been in love
with you since the first time I
saw you."
"Me too," she said and em-
braced his neck.
"But, what are we going to
do about Aldo? I'm engaged to
be married..."
S"Aldo! That dirty rat, that
scoundrel. He has stolen my
intended and my main star,


and run away to Palermo. They
won't be back for a month!"
"Remo, what's to become
of us?"
"I'm marrying you this eve-
ning and tomorrow we are
leaving for New York."
"A honeymoon?" .
"No, to live. To work. To
become rich and famous. I11
make films, you will study
and translate at the United
Nations."
"You are crazy," she said,
laughing deliriously Remo.
"That's what they said to Co-
lumbus!"
"And Marconi," she added.
The Return
In the meantime, after a
night of nonstop love making,
Generosa and Aldo found an
envelope on their breakfast
tray. It had no name on the
return address.
They found two tickets to
Palermo, reservations at the
Prince Alberto Hotel, and pass-
es for every theatre and fine
restaurantfor an entire month.
All paid for in advance!
They found that they were
made for one another. At the
end of the month, they crept
back to the farm in great
trepidation. What to tell Remo?
"I've not only stole his girl, I've
stolen his movie star."
"And what to tell Guiletta?
This will break her heart. Her
first true love has jilted her.
What shame!"
They met with Francaucho
and told him the story. He lis-
tened with a stone face. "What
do you think, Francaucho, will
Remo ever forgive me?"
"Forgive you? No. Kill you?
Yes."
"Well, all I got to tell you
is he took my Beretta, fully


loaded, and said the next time
he sees you he's going to put
two bullets in your eyes."
"What about me," Generosa
shrieked?
"He said to tell you he is go-
ing to spare you because you
are still under contract and he
needs you for one more film."
Part III
In America
Remo and Guiletta did not
arrive in America on an im-
migrant boat at Ellis Island.
Guiletta had an armful of doc-
umentation from the United
Nations as a top translator.
Remo was greeted as an un-
derground cult hero Italian
filmmaker.
He was taken to the Tribeca
section and shown a two story
townhouse. It was expensive,
but eminently comfortable.
They were very happy there,
and took a month off to ac-
custom themselves to life in
the big city.
She went right to work at
a high post. He had a hard
time finding financing for his
film. He saw that the world
of film was almost impossible
to break into and he found a
second love. He found that he
was hopelessly in love with the
City of New York.
When he was small, about
8, on the farm in Sicily, his
uncle went to New York to at-
tend the World Fair. In addition
to miniatures of the Statue of
Liberty and the Empire State
Building, he brought back a
huge, beautifully detailed map
of the streets of Manhattan. As
a child, Remo tacked it on the
wall and everyday, after school,
he took a cab from various
important buildings which he

Louisiana might be willing to give up
its shores to this kind of environmental
damage, which is a somewhat regular
occurrence there, but we are not.
July 22
SCounty Commissioner Brian Blair
put an item on Wednesday's County
Commission agenda at the last minute.
He timed the placement so the item
could not be found on the online agenda
Tuesday night.
The item, so carefully placed on the
agenda, was to stop the county from ad-
vertising in La Gaceta. Now Mr. Blair said
it was not so, but we have been involved
in politics too long to buy that lie.
He was tired of this newspaper report-
ing on how lousy a commissioner he is, so
he thought he would shut us up by attack-
ing us where it hurt, in our wallet. Well,
we will not be kept silent. Blair will not
scare this newspaper into complacency.
We will continue to criticize him and
other commissioners when they act like
throttlebottoms. Blair tried to cut out all
advertising by the county to La Gaceta,
but he didn't want to be accused of using
his power for a personal vendetta against
me so he expanded his crusade to elimi-
nate county advertising from all minority
newspapers, La Gaceta and the black
targeted newspaper, the Florida Sentinel
Bulletin. What was he thinking? Better
to be called a racist than to be accused of
being vengeful?
July 29
SThe United States government seized
43 boxes of computer equipment from the
Pastors for Peace Friendshipment Cara-
van at the U.S. Mexican border because
the equipment was intended for children
in Cuba.
According to the Pastors for Peace
spokesperson, 45 border patrol agents
searched the 11-vehicle caravan that was
leaving the U.S.
It's amazing that we can waste such
large amounts of homeland security
manpower to search goods LEAVING the
U.S. and being carried by church groups.
It makes you wonder if shipments com-
ing into the U.S. fail to be inspected for
lack of manpower in order to harass the
Friendshipment Caravan.
The Center for American Progress
released a report that for the first time
estimates the cost to deport every un-
documented person in the U.S. The report
pegs the cost at $206 billion to deport
approximately 10 million people over a
five-year period.
August 5
Hillsborough County government has
cancelled the talk show "Weekly Review"
that features members of the community
discussing politics and current events.
We hear the administration under the
influence of the County Commission was
severely editing subject matter to be dis-
cussed each week.
August 12
We hear Dr. Earl Lennard will an-
nounce for state senate district 10 before
Labor Day
On Wednesday at noon in Ybor City
we found 22 law enforcement vehicles
parked at expired meters or illegal
parked near Hillsborough Community
College's (HCC) campus ...
The vehicles were checked out to offi-
cers who were attending classes at HCC.
The college provides free parking for its
students in the parking garage. These
officers were just too" lazy to use it and
instead felt more comfortable violating
local ordinances, which reflects badly on
the professionalism of the law enforce-
ment departments represented by these
officers.
The City of Temple Terrace spent
$50,000 of taxpayer money to runf a
political campaign to convince voters to
support a controversial bond referendum
that would have increased property taxes
for downtown redevelopment.
August 19
On Wednesday morning we attended
a meet and greet with Republican gu-
bernatorial candidate Tom Gallagher. A
couple of hours later we met with Republi-
can gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist
in our office. Listening to both of them
we got the impression that there is little
difference between them in substance.
Both will cater to the Republican Reli-
gious Right (RRR). But there is a world
of difference between the two candidates
in style. Tom Gallagher comes off like
dry toast ... Charlie Crist, on the other
hand, looks you right in the eye. You see


empathy on his face, you hear concern in
his voice. If Republican voters see the two
together, Tom Gallagher will have a tough
time winning their votes.
We hear the Tampa Tribune's new
weekly Spanish newspaper will be called
"Centro."
August 26
Since President Bush has been on
vacation in Crawford, Texas, 76 American
soldiers have died in Iraq and Afghani-
stan. They are on permanent vacation
from life. Doesn't it just seem wrong for
a president to tell the nation it's at war
and to send young men and women to die
while he takes a five-week vacation?
September 2
The disaster in the wake of Hur-
ricane Katrina is worse than most of us
can imagine. To see the flooding in New
Orleans, the devastation in Gulfport and
Biloxi and to see the greatest nation on
the earth unable to prevent such dam-
age and to be hampered in delivering aid
when it is needed the most humbles us.
No one knows what the death toll will
be. We talked to someone close to FEMA
who toured Biloxi on Tuesday. He saw a
semi-truck and trailer backup to a mortu-
ary to unload the dead.
Some in FEMA believe the dead could
number 1,000.
The NFL and the Tampa Bay Bucca-
neers want the Tampa Sports Authority
(TSA) to "pat down" everyone who enters
Raymond James Stadium and they want
the TSA to do so with taxpayers' money.
The cost of this added security could
run up to'$100,000 for the rest of the
season.
The TSA should study this issue very
carefully. For a government agency to "pat
down" 65,000 people with no probable
cause is unprecedented ...
September 9
Did you see ...
The Associated Press has a photo of
a black man dragging a bag through the
flooded streets of New Orleans. The cap-
tion read, "A young man walks through
chest deep flood water after looting a
grocery store in.New Orleans." Another
photo featuring a white couple doing the
same thing has a caption that read, "Two
residents wade through chest-deep water.
after finding bread and soda from a local.
grocery store."

In October, the Republican half of
the County Commission led by Brian
Blair will try to shrink, dismantle, reduce
and break the award-winning indigent
healthcare program.
The working poor will be abandoned
and left to suffer with sickness and dis-
ease.
But, also in October, the County Com-
mission led by Brian Blair will expand
medical coverage for themselves and
other politicians. "Effective October 1
any eligible Commissioner who leaves the
board in good standing and who has eight
or more years of service will be allowed
to elect to participate in the Hillsborough
County Group Health Plan" and their
eligible dependents.
September 23
It has been a messy week for the
Hillsborough County Democratic Execu-
tive Committee (HCDEC). On Monday,
the HCDEC's chairperson, Janee.Murphy,
was cleared of several charges leveled at
her by the vice chair, Robert Keenan.
The Credentials Committee found
more fault with the complainant than the
accused. Vice Chair Keenan violated the
bylaws by filing the allegations with the
state party instead of the local Creden-
tials Committee. He also "jeopardized the
integrity of the HCDEC by allowing his
allegations to be released to persons, ap-
parently not members of the HCDEC, who
subsequently released this information
to the press" before allegations had been
investigated by the proper authorities.
September 30
Representative Tom DeLay of Texas
was indicted this week on a criminal count
of conspiracy and temporarily stepped
down as House majority leader.
Attorney Rebecca Harrison Steele
of the American Civil Liberties Union
(ACLU) has requested all documents
pertaining to the approval of pat-down
searches by the Tampa Sports Authority.
This type of request is often the first step
in a lawsuit.

The mayor is leading a group from
Tampa on a trade mission to Panama.
The problem with encouraging trade
between Tampa and anywhere in Latin
America is demonstrated by the group's
flight. To get to Panama, they must fly
through Miami. A trip that should take
two hours takes close to six. That's no way
to do business.
Rumors persist that County Commis-
sioner Ronda Storms will run for State
Senate district 10, which will be an open
seat due to term limits affecting Senate
President Tom Lee.
October 14
Phyllis Busansky is being recruited
by Democratic Party loyalists and friends
to run for Congressional district 9.
Mr. Pete Johnson attended an awards
ceremony at the County Commission ...
Mr. Johnson was in shock by what he saw
and sent an email to the County Commis-
sion later that same day to complain ...
"I was appalled by the outfit Ronda
Storms was wearing for such a prestigious
recognition ceremony. The dress that
Ronda Storms had on was rude and an
embarrassment to the other profession-
ally dressed commissioners. As far as I
am concerned, Ronda Storms looked like
the prostitutes that we fight on Florida
and Nebraska avenues.
October 21
Months ago, this newspaper and
others reported on the plight of Sergeant
Carlos Lazo. Sgt. Lazo returned to the
U.S. after fighting for our country in
Iraq and to bring freedom to the Iraqi
people. He served our country with pride
and dignity, earning a bronze star. Upon
returning home, Sgt. Lazo wanted to
travel to Cuba to visit his ailing teenage
son, but was denied because of President
Bush's tough travel restrictions to Cuba,
limiting travel for family members to once
every three years. At the time, it was quite
-ironic that a man fighting for freedom of
others did not have the freedom to visit
his own son.
October 28
The Hillsborough County School
Board voted to drop purely religious
holidays from. its calendar of days off.
This means that Yom Kippur and Good
Friday will no longer be days off and that
President's Day will now be honored by
not going to school.
SThe first.round rithe race for Repub-
lican hearts, minds and wallets between
Rose Ferlita and Brad Swanson.running

been won by the lady.
First, the race for money. As of Sep-
tember 30, Ms. Ferlita has raised $85,305
compared to Mr. Swanson's $23,000.
Now for the hearts and minds. Swan-
son has the Rashid machine but the rest of
the Republican leadership seems to favor
Rose Ferlita and they far outnumber the
Rashid machine.
November 4,
The great Al Lopez died Sunday at
the age of 97. I did not personally know
him well, but my father let me know that
Al Lopez was someone that I should re-
spect. He.was one of the main attractions
of Tampa's Latin community; a man who
came from humble beginnings in Ybor
City and rose to the top of his chosen
profession, baseball.
County Commissioner Ronda Storms
got her chance for revenge (which I guess
is a Christian value since Ronda is the
self-appointed monitor of Christian val-
ues) against Tampa Tribune columnist
Dan Ruth when she appeared on Bill
O'Reilly's show on Wednesday. She told
O'Reilly that Dan Ruth was intellectually
beneath him. Oh! Snap!

We are saddened to hear of the pass-
ing of Glenn Barrington. He died at the
age of 82 on Wednesday, November 9. Mr.
Barrington served our community well
with 16 years on Hillsborough County's
School Board.
Interstate 4 continues to be an ex-
tremely dangerous piece of highway on
*Friday and Saturday nights when Ybor
City's popularity is at its peak.
The Florida Department of Trans-
portation continues to turn a deaf ear to
complaints that their temporary signage
at the 21st/22nd Street exit heading east
is totally inadequate. In fact, the exit is
harder to find than a Muslim holiday on
Hillsborough County School's calendar.

Are the gods.starting to smile on
Democrats?
A recent poll shows Jim Davis in a sta-
tistical tie with the two top Republicans
in the race for governor.

black) art museum site selection com-

mittee has voiced a preference for a site
(in downtown Tampa) that has already
earned the wrath of the Tribune and
Times. We will now pile on more criticism ...
Tampa continues to be a city divided by
racism and prejudice. Everything refined
must be downtown because the South
Tampa bluebloods should not be forced to
venture into the Latin and black badlands
of West Tampa, Ybor City or East Tampa.
And, of course, for those south of Kennedy
to travel to the uncouth north where USF
and New Tampa lie would be offensive to
the senses.
This site is ridiculous and we would
rather not have an art museum than.to
have one there.

SA recent article by Walt Belcher,
television critic with the Tampa Tribune,
talked of Fox News under the direction of
Roger Ailes asking 35 of its local stations
to send their news anchors to New York
to get training in delivering news in the
Foxway. Our local station, Channel 13,
sent its anchors from the morning show
to participate in the training. It's kind of
scary that local stations are being foxi-
fled. Have these anchors been strapped
down and had their eyes held open like in
the movie Clockwork Orange while they
watch hour after hour of Bill O'Reilly and
Sean Hannity blame the Democrats for
crucifying Jesus? ...
We hope the evildoers at Fox News fall
short of turning their local anchors into
little Bill O'Reillys who bully the guests,
warp the truth and wrap themselves in
the flag while burning the constitution.

SLast week, the Florida Department
of Transportation (FDOT) and HARTline
dedicated a bus shelter on Columbus
Drive where George Washington Junior
High School was located. The bus shel-
ter was built with materials from the
historic George Washington Junior High
that FDOT tore down. The bus stop is
intended to serve as a historic marker and
memorial to the junior high school. To us,
the bus stop will serve as a reminder of
the cold and callous way FDOT treats our
historic buildings and of the neglect the
school system has shown for all tradition-
ally Latin and black schools.

SWhat's going on in Ronda Storms'
County Commission district?
A black woman's home was vandalized
with racial epithets painted on the wall.
A black businessman trying to buy gift
cards at Wal-Mart was almost arrested
because management thought he was
passing a bad check. He was not, nor was
there any evidence of a crime. It seems
being black is enough in Ronda's district
to be considered a criminal ...
Instead.of protesting bikini bars and
hassling Joe Redner, maybe Commis-
sioner Storms should lead some marches
in her district for civil rights. It is the
Christian thing to do.

Last Thursday we enjoyed the friend-
ship and camaraderie of the Gonzmart
family during a party celebrating the 100th
anniversary of the Columbia Restaurant.

Shame on County Commissioner
Ronda Storms for interfering with the
established procedures of approving local
businesses. She called a county employee
at his home and asked for a favor. She
wanted him to delay the approval of a
certificate of occupancy for a controver-
sial bikini bar in the Brandon area. It
appears Ronda's prejudice against this
business and its owner made her violate
the county's rules regarding these occu-
pancy certificates.
What makes matters worse is that she
did this on her own, superseding the pow-
ers of the whole County Commission. We
know she has made herself god, but who
made her the county's mayor? Ronda's
conduct should be investigated because
we are sure this is not the first time she
has acted outside the normal parameters
of a county commissioner's duties.
Jose Valiente was named president
of the Greater Tampa Chamber of Com-
merce, Thursday, December 14 ...
It is a rare occasion when the very
Anglo chamber of commerce names a
minority as its leader.

Captain Harry Bolton and his
Merchant Marine crew work hard
to live up to the reputation of their
ship's namesake, the late Tampa
native and Korean War hero
Baldomero Lopez. Read about
Bolton's adventures in this week's

On the Other Hand

by Lee Drury De Cesare


School Board Hot-Air Information Office


Mr. Hegarty:
Your Sunshine answers
below remind me of Goebbels-
Riefenstahl propaganda.
They spun Corporal Hitler
into goose-stepping Master-
race demigod. Goebbel's aco-
lyte Rove elected Bush twice.
Kings don't need PR han-
dlers. They cut off complain-
ing subjects' heads. Since
democracy lets critics vote,
tax- supported bureaucrats
hire ballyhoo specialists to
befuddle citizens about reality
inside the bunker.
You get $91,000 a year
from taxpayers to flummox
taxpayers.
You dish out board alterna-
tive-universe canon-speak of
linguistic smoke and mirrors.
Hence, one must deconstruct
"answers" to public-informa-
tion requests
Italics mark your com-
ments:
Nepotism Policy
In ... School District's nepo-
tism policy..., there are no
prohibitions against spouses
working for the district. How-
ever... clear guidelines prevent
an employee from supervising
a family member or spouse. I
think you'll find that is a com-
mon policy in large businesses
as well as School Districts.
Enron,,undone by Kenny
Boy's belief in the power of PR
to cover up bogus accounting,
had identical policy. Flipping
administrative pair was Fastow
and his wife. Pious nepotism
guidelines stand pro forma
cover-up--at Enron or School
Board.
List of "paired jobs"
1) No such list exists....
District would charge a fee...
[for any;.. list] that does not
... exist.
Fees for public-information
service equal nifty way to
evade, it.
2)... We do not have com-
puter records that track em-
ployees' spouses. How would
we capture such a list?
Easy: alphabetize employee
database; compare subgroups'
addresses. You don't keep
this list because administra-
tion doesn't want information
known.
You point out, correctly, that
a requestfor information does
not need to be written. I'm not
sure why you think the Board
comment you cited states oth-
erwise.
Board tone chills input.
To attract, not repel, public
dialogue, Board should invite
and answer questions-written
and oral. Board does neither,
of course.
Records Retention
..you asked for employment
applications for the applicants
who did not get the jobs... By
law, we are required to keep
such records for two years, not
the 30 years that you cited.
Cite your source: bibliogra-
phy item or authority.
Hiring information


Linda Kipley was appointed
to her current position as part
of reorganization. The job was
not advertised and there were
no other applicants.
"Reorganizing" equals unc-
tuous gloss for giving Kipley
this job without allowing oth-
ers equal opportunity to apply.
I infer Randy Poindexter, re-
putedly scared of strong wom-
en, assisted Kipley after she
kissed his ring. That exercise
should make any self-respect-
ing woman puke. I require copy
of district promotion policy.
Kipling's non-competitive
ascent refutes board equal-op-
portunity piety:
On the basis of race, color,
sex, national origin, marital sta-
tus, disability, age or religion,
no person shall be excluded
from participation in, denied
the benefits of, or subjected
to discrimination under any
education program or activity,
or in any employment condi-
tions orpractices conducted by
this school district, except as
provided by law.
Kipley's "reorganization"
boost, putatively engineered
by mentor Area Director Orlan
Bryant, means equal-opportu-
nity promise equals cover-the-
board's-ass flimflam..
What were Kipley's pay and
job-title before "reorganiza-
tion" magically lifted her to
$120,000 job?
As for the applicant pool file
on Connie Milito (I assume you,
mean Connie Milito. Your cor-
respondence refers to a "Con-
nie Alito," but we have no one
working here by that name.)
She holds her current position
as a result of an upgrade. Her
job duties were expanded and
therefore her title was changed.
There were no other applicants.
In effect, the District's lobby-
ist was asked to do more jobs
and her job description was
updated to reflect that.
Thank you for correcting the
little person's identity.
"Expanded upgrade" razzle-
dazzle barring other applicants:
that's Kafkaesque language.
Pray provide little-woman job
title/ salary before mysterious
"upgrade."
As for Ms. Milito's original
appointment, we no longer have
the files of the unsuccessful
applicants. That appointment
occurred in 1993, which is well
outside of the records retention
period. I can tell you, however,
that Ms. Milito's personnel file
contains documents that in-
dicate 18 people applied for
that.
That 18 people applied
for a job which burgeons to
$120,000 does not surprise.
The majority, I bet, exceeded
Ms. Mileto's credentials. I
translate your gauzy "indi-
cate" to mean these people
have names and addresses. I
request those data.
I see why you stalled a
month before revealing Kip.-
ley-Mileto hiring sagas. The
home-ec-kinderdergarten can-


didates' no-equal-opportunity
ascensions expose hypocrisy.
The administration didn't ad-
vertise these no-competition
jobs even on bulletin boards
or web site-thumbprint of pa-
tronage dodge to pass employ-
ment to buddies, paramours,
or administrator's no-talent
nephew.
In the Dubose-Lamb-Kearse
typical hiring fiasco, Lennard
ignored committee best-can-
didate recommendation and
substituted superintendent
droit-du-seigneur selection of
his favorite. Such arbitrary,
shoddy hiring helps explain
Florida's abysmal national
ranking of 39th.
'Mileto-Kipley revelations
render void equal-opportunity
mantra: Board does not dis-
criminate "based on race, reli-
gion, national origin, or sex."
Anybody who asserts that-
board jobs come from admin-
istrative perfidy gets sleep-
with-the-fishes-shoot-out-at-
the-OK-Corral-heading-for-
the-last-roundup-remember-
the-Alamo-eat-lead-sucker-

Personnel files
...you asked to see the per-
sonnel files for Linda Kipley
and Connie Milito. You were
invited to come to the office (at
901 East Kennedy Boulevard)
any time. The invitation stands.
We would be happy to find a
comfortable place for you to pe-

Ads for Lennard & Elia Su-

The Baedeker of Usual Sus-
pects acted complicit in sham
"nation-wide" $30-35,000

Your writing surprises since

IT'S NOT WORTH THE WEIGHT.


4) American Heart Association
*,*1 2. Am.,r .n Hen A.otalmlon '
















The captain's heroics, much
like those of his ship's name-
sake, go unnoticed in many
corners of the world, yet that
does not diminish the impor-
tance of either of their great


deeds.
A member of
the U.S. Mer-
chant Marines for Cad
31 years, Captain
Harry Bolton has
proudly support-
ed the U.S. Armed
Forces as a civil-
ian in a number
of important mis-
sions throughout
the world. He has
helped to save
countless lives in
countries devas-
tated by natural
disasters and has
seen Scud Mis-
siles scream over
his head during
major battles in
the Persian Gulf. ;'
Yet, in every cor-
ner of the world,
civilians are un-
familiar with the
danger a mer-
chant marine can
face, instead be-
lieving merchant
marines simply
transport cargo. 1
"Which is true,
we do transport
cargo," clarified .
Bolton. "Except "The m
my cargo is mili- Bal
tary equipment Baldom
needed by .the andmy
Armed Forces we cant
during military
operations.
"It is a sore spot with the
merchant marines. While we're
not engaged on the front lines,
we are of importance to the
military. We are what many
call the United States' fifth
line of defense. Yet, we go un-
noticed. But, we all knew that
was the case when we joined,
so we continue to do our jobs
without complaints."
His ship's namesake is the
late Tampa native and Korean
War hero First Lieutenant Bal-
domero Lopez of the U.S. Ma-
rine Corps, who gave his life in
the war when he smothered a
grenade with his own body to
ensure the safety of his fellow
troops. He was the first Tampa
native to receive the Congres-,
sional Medal of Honor and a
true hero, yet in many corners
of his own hometown, his name
wouldn't garner any recogni-
tion. A real shame.
True, Bolton's heroics can-
not be compared to Lt. Lopez'
ultimate sacrifice, yet Bolton's
contributions to the safety of
this world cannot be ignored.
As a merchant, marine, he
could choose to haul agricul-
ture or cars for private corpora-
tions or he could chose to leave
the Merchant Marines and
captain a cruise ship to tropi-
cal islands. Yet, he instead has
chosen to serve his country as
a civilian by VOLUNTEERING
to haul cargo important to the
U.S. Armed Forces' wartime
operations, putting himself
in harms way on more than
one occasion. Sometimes he
delivers bulldozers, sometimes
trucks and sometimes weapons
and ammunition. Whatever his.
cargo, it is always vital to the
military operation. The U.S.
Merchant Marines have sup-
ported the U.S. Armed Forces
for over 200 years. In fact, the
Merchant Marines lost more
men PER CAPITA in World War
II than every military branch
except the Marines.
"Yeah, my crew and I have
been in a few hairy situations


over the years," said Bolton.
"Before I captained the Bal-
domero Lopez, I captained
the William Button into the
Persian Gulf War in 1991 and
we were right in the thick of
things.


ptain Harry Bc

'

N1 Ih i ti t I i i,1
an our ship was named in
ero Lopez, was a true Ame
crew and myself want to do
:o honor his name."

"The ship was carrying am-
munition and weapons, so
anytime the Marines needed
something in support of the
war we would load the ship
and put the equipment on the
ground for them to be taken to
Kuwait. We were also involved
in a few special operations
missions, bringing them equip-
ment. We were always on the
edge and never knew what
would happen next. Scud Mis-
siles were flying over our heads
and landing in the desert and
air sirens would go off every
night. It was wild and also the
highlight of my career. To be a
civilian yet have the opportu-
nity to support the troops in
such a manner is something I
am proud of." .
Why does Bolton put himself
in such danger? Why would he
volunteer for such missions
when he could be captaining
yachts and drinking cocktails
at beach resorts?
As he simply said, "It's in my
blood. I was born to do this."
Born and raised in San
Francisco, the Merchant Ma-
rines have been part of the now
49 year old Bolton's life since
he was a little kid. His grand-
father was a Merchant Marine
ship engineer and whenever his
ship ported in the Port of San
Francisco he'd give Bolton free
reign of the ship. Bolton would
run from one end of the deck
to the other, climb through the
cargo holds and explore every
inch of the ship.
"Ever since then all I ever
wanted to do was be on some
sort of water vessel," said
Bolton. "I can't explain what
drew me to it, but it's all I
thought about."
As a teenager he would cap-
tain sail boats through the bay
for the families with little or
no captaining experience and
while in the California Mer-
chant Academy he raced 83-
foot sail boats in the bay and
captained a 38-foot sail boat
for a rich advertising executive,
teaching the executive's family


I]


how to sail.
At the age of 22 he gradu-
ated from the academy and his
adventures began. In 1980 he
joined a Merchant Marine ship
that worked in the oil industry
and over the next few years he
served as second
ton mate on other
to Merchant ships
that carried car-
'ARMORl


S go such as sugar,
S cars and grain all
Over the world,
primarily to and


But in 1983, his
life changed. He
joined a ship that
was supporting
the U.S. Armed
Forces in opera-
.. tions in Grenada
Sand Korea. The
Missions they
were part of were
dynamic and ex-
Sciting and from
i that point on he
specialized in
Military projects.
SHe earned a rep-
S utation through-
Sout the Merchant
Marines as one of
; the organization's
top up and com-
I-Al ing leaders and
m by the age of 29
S---.!i! he became cap-
,xi*,l-Xia li 1 i tain of his own
honor of, ship the USNS
rican hero Regulus, which
can hero measured 950
everything feet and sailed at
36 knots.
"Twen ti-nnine
years old is an extremely young
age to be named a captain."
said Bolton proudly. "But, like I
said, I was born for this job."
In 1991, after returning from
the Persian Gulf, he joined the
MV 1ST LT Baldomero Lopez,
a 673-foot ship that cruises at
17.7 knots and has a crew of
29 civilians, all of whom have
volunteered to put their lives in
danger in support of military
missions.
The Baldomero Lopez has
supported missions in Thai-
lard, Australia, Korea and,
of course, Iraq, making eight
trips over the last three years
in support of Operation Iraqi
Freedom, including the Janu-
ary 2003 trip that put the first
supply of combat equipment
on the ground for the Ma-
rines. The Baldomero Lopez
was honored with the Safety
Achievement Award for rescu-
ing 35 people on the island of
Anatahan when it was hit by a
typhoon. Bolton's crew had 'to
navigate the rough waters and
helicopter the stranded people
from the island onto the ship.
Recently, the Baldomero Lopez
supported the military in its
relief mission of Sri Lanka after
the tsunami hit. Bolton and his
crew had to pick up military
construction equipment from
Sri Lanka and Bolton said the
sights he saw will stay with
him forever.
"I took a tour of the area,
but avoided the real bad areas
due to the lack of roads and
the fact that I was there to do
a job, not be some lookie-lookie
guy gawking, at the misfortune
of others, so though I saw some
destruction, I didn't see the
worst of it," he said. "The sights
that will stay with me are the
faces of the people victimized
by the tsunami; the people
who lose their homes and,
even worse, their friends and
relatives. I arrived in Sri Lanka
one month after the tsunami
hit, yet the grim looks on the
victims' faces were still fresh.
"But that is why I enjoy this

job, because I get to take part
in missions that deliver much
more than cargo they deliver
hope."
At the age of 49 and after 31
years of U.S. Merchant Marine
service, he said though he is
not ready for retirement yet, it
is in his future. He sees himself
staying with the Baldomero
Lopez for another five years
before walking away from the
Merchant Marines but plans
to stay in the shipping indus-
try, possibly hauling "talking
cargo," which he said is how
merchant marines jokingly
refer to people.
In the meantime, he looks
forward to continued mis-

took out of the book of famous
buildings. For years he'd get in
his chair, flip the switch down
(he .had made a meter out of
an old square coffee can and a
spoon) and he would say,
"Take me to the Battery.
"Take me to the Metropoli-
tan.
"Take me to the Garden
"Take me to the Zeigfield."
And then he would say the
route out loud, and then trace
his route on the map.
Then he'd get Aldo to read
off a name.
"1st National Bank."
"Stock Market."
"Friars Club"
And Remo would yell out
the streets; "34th between 7th
and 8th."
SAnd he was never wrong.
The startling consequence of
this was that when Remo and
Guiliatta came to live in New
York, he spent six agonizing
years looking for work in the
film industry. He became quite
frustrated, butone morning he
'got up feeling totally refreshed
and enlightened.
"What's gotten into you?
You look so happy."
S "Guiletta, today I am re-
born! This is the first day of
my life!"
"You got a film .deal? You
sold a script?"
"Nope 'From this day for-
ward I join the working mass-
es; I am going to drive a New
York cab. I am going to be a
cabbie!"
"You don't even have a cab,"
she look-surprised.
"Well buy one."
"You don't have a cabbie
license. That's expensive."
"Well buy one."
"'ou don t even hsve a
drn\er's license.
"We'll buy one."
"You don't even know how
to drive a car."
"Ill learn," he said smiling.

Guiletta sat back stirring
her coffee. Actually she was
juniping for joy. Remo loved
the streets of New York-and'
he needed to get out with the
people of the city, to shed his
solitary life of continuous rejec-
tion of the film business, and
return to the real world, to the.
life of New York City. Perhaps
he would find stories to make
into films And i not, he would
get up every day smiling, look-
ing forward to a day of many
different stories, of joys, of
sadness, of victory and defeat,
stories that only New York
could offer.
Life progressed in thisway,
one card at a time.
"Life is a river," he would
tell his passengers. "You don't
know what's around .the next
bend. It could be rapids or a
waterfall, or a long stretch of
fast running water. You never
know."
After 20 happyyears he had
a long list of regular customers
whom he called his regular
family. He was healthy as an
ox, still deeply in love- with
Guiletta and in possession of a
broad streak of optimism..
One day he awoke with a
black cloud of pessimism over
his head. After his shower he
couldn't touch his breakfast.
Guiletta wondered what was
bothering Remo.
"What is it Caro? I haven't
seen you so sad since we left
Sicily. What is it?"
"I don't know. Something
terrible is going to happen to
me today."
"Bring me your gun out of
the car. Empty the bullets out.
You can have a gun to scare off
punks, but no bullets to kill


anyone."
"Si, but it's not like that, it's
bigger. Much bigger."
He got up and shuffled to
his gleaming yellow cab. With
a heavy heart he got up and
went to pick up his usual eight
o'clock fare to NBC, Rockefeller
Plaza. They had several stops
to make. The last stop before
he dropped him off at NBC was
at the World Trade Center.
"Ill be back in 10 minutes
tops," the fare said.
"Ill be here," said Remo.,
feeling an intense pain in his
heart.
The Disaster
Remo looked at his fake
Rolex. It was nine. Out.of the
corner of his eye he saw a huge,
black shadow crash into the
building. It made a sickening.
loud crash. Automatically he
slammed his cab in reverse so
that he could look up.
The top of the Towers was
exploding. A huge, white cloud
of dust started to fall down its
,side. He watched in fascina-
tion.
As he watched, a second
large plane slammed into the
other side. Now both gigantic
towers were crashing to the
street, melting bricks, con-
crete,-girders, glass and steel.
"I knew it," Remo said and
backed further to escape the
falling debris.
He stood by his cab, tears
streaming down his face, he
kept repeating, "I knew it!" "I
knew it!"
Soon fire engines came
on to the scene, a stream of
firefighters and cops flew into
the building, which was still
collapsing on top of them, kill-
ing them all. It was a -slaugh-
terhouse.
Remo went back to volun-
-teer in anyway he could, but
the firemen had all gone into
the inferno. He snatched up
the gear of a firefighter, put on
a mask, a hat and a fire axe
and plunged into the build-
ing, which. was settling into
the pavement. Clouds of white
dust billowed down the street.
People ran, panic stricken. At
first he led survivors out to the
street, then he went in deeper
and chopped through debris
and freed groups of people
trapped in offices and eleva-
tors. Many were stunned and
injured, he carried them to
safety. He worked for hours,
never feeling weak or exhaust-
ed. He felt he- had superhu-
inan strength. Every once in a
while another fireman would.
check his mask and replace
a canister of fresh filter stuff.
He breathed better and would
go back in.
It was getting dark outside
and he realized he had not
called Guiletta. She was not at
home or in the office so he left a
message. "Am at WTC working
with Fire Rescue Crew. Don't
worry. I am fine."
The night work was very
hazardous because of lack
of vision. At about 3 a.m. he
sat at a dead end to rest for
a moment when he heard a
scratching and a soft human
voice. A child. It said, "Help
me. Help me."
He thrust his big flashlight
into the hole and looked in. He
found a very little boy, about
four or so, laying in a small
space just big-enough to ac-
commodate him. He looked
scared to death, but there was
no way out.. He was locked in
a cocoon of huge boulders.
There was no way possible to
cut him out.
Reassuring him that help
was on the way he passed him
his big flashlight and a bottle
of water and a Snickers candy
bar. He told him he was going
to fetch an air hose so he would


have fresh air. The boy said a
weak, "Thank you Mister Fire-
man." Remo thrust his arm
through the hole and held his
tiny hand.
"Oh boy, the guy's will never
believe this in school," the child
said meekly. Remo gulped back
tears. "Be back cowboy." Then,
as he turned it occurred to him
that he-didn't even know the
boys' name.
"What's your name?" "Cow-
boy," he whispered.
All night Remo worked to
amplify the hole. All night
he talked to Cowboy. He. had
brought a big pack of chocolate
Oreo cookies, a pint of milk, a
big air hose pumped some air,
feeding Cowboy the oxygen he
needed to survive.
Crews of the best firemen
took turns blasting the big
thick girders, but the super-
intendent took Remo aside. "If
we do cut through the girder it
will just collapse the hole he is
in and crush him."
"So, what do we do?" Remo
asked in a cry of horror!
SThe hard face of the old
fire chief told him the answer.
The old man put his hand on
Remo's shoulder, "Nothing," he
said, turning and leaving the
scene. "Pray," he added.
Remo had not realized that
two more days and nights had
passed. He kept Cowboy alive
for three days. He had not
thought of calling Guiletta.
She was beside herself with
anxiety. His cab had been'
found covered with a thick
layer of white dust. His lunch
pail was by his driver's chair.
Then she saw a book she had
never seen. By his pail was a
prayer book from St. Anthony.
Strange she thought, he had
never believed in religion.
Three days and- nights had
gone by No fireman knew
him because he was at the
site without reporting his real
name. Hundreds of firefight-
ers and cops were in similar
situations, working one on one
with trapped survivors. No one
knew where anyone was.
Guiletta compressed her
eyes as tears streamed down
-her face. "He's alive! I know
he is!"
On the fourth day Remo
felt a rumbling as the building
was settling under the weight
of tons of debris. The end had
come.
"Cowboy, what's your real
name?"
"Robert Leuison. Is it time?"
he asked in a little brave
voice.
"Perhaps. Mine is Remo."
"Thanks for staying with
me," he said bravely.
"I'll see you around," said.
Remo, feeling foolish. What
can you say to a 4 year old
child minutes away from being
crushed to death?
STwo firemen came up to pull
Remo to safety. He pulled off
his heavy fireman's gear and.
hat and mask and sat on the
curb and buried his head in.
his hands. Remo sobbed un-
controllably for an hour.
"Mingia! What does life
mean." He asked, and he knew
he had reached an epiphany.
He got up and went home to
Guiletta to sort things out.
A Big Change,
For two months Remo got
up like an automated object
and drove to the site of the
Twin Towers. Firemen all knew
who he was now. Remo was
fearless, he crawled into im-
possible spaces, down elevator
shaft, rescuing survivors that
had seemed lost. Sometimes
he pulled out cadavers. They,
too, needed to be saved. They
had families too. Those families
needed to know.
One afternoon, in October,


as he came out covered with
white dust there was a nice,
young couple waiting beside
his cab.
"Are you Cowboy's friend?"
Remo was shocked. They
seemed so young to be dealt
this terrible blow.
"Yes. He was a brave little
fellow. We spent four days and
nights together," Remo man-
aged to say.
"We know. On the third
night a fireman passed him
his cell phone and he talked to
us and told us about the brave
fireman who-had saved his life
and brought him Oreos and
milk, and told him Western
stories about cowboys and In-
dians. He was most proud that
you called him Cowboy."
At that point Remo broke
into tears. They gave him a
beautiful picture of Cowboy
and drove him home in his
cab.
Remo got into bed and
couldn't get out for the rest of
the month, and when he did it
was with an outrageous plan.
The Outrageous Plan
"Guiletta, I am going to ask
you to do an outrageous thing.
I think it may save me from
going mad."
"You know by now how I
fooled poor Aldo into tricking,
Generosa to run away with
'him to Palermo and dump me.
I had to fake rage and indig-
nation. He stole my intended.
So I had to pay him back and
steal you. It was a cheap, low
down trick."
"You know now that little
ruse was transparent as cel-
lophane. You said nothing.
You came to New York with me
and married me. I never said
a thing except to keep up an
imagined rage against my poor,
*dopey brother Aldo."
"I knew it would work out
Remo, it was meant to be. This
is what I had prayed to the
Virgin Mother for. And now?
Aldo has a nice, fat wife and
ten children, and the money he
sends us from voitr share of the
farms is generous. I think it's
time you make up," Guiletta
added.
"Yes, Caro, that is my outra-
geous plan," Remo said holding
her hand.
"I propose to send you to
Aldo's house to spend 30 days.
I want you to see what you
missed. I want Generosa to
come to New York. She always
dreamed of this city. I want her
to see how we live in the city. Of
course we are old now, no need
to spell out," he made a crude
sign with his hand continuing,
"no hanky panky."
She laughed,."Not likely."
"I hear the marvelously
round Generosa is now 325
pounds."
"And I look like Audrey Hep-
burn with an eating disorder"-
she laughed.
"But of course, I think it's
a lovely gesture of reconcili-.
ation."
"Done," said.Remo, and he
sat down to write his brother a
letter, 20 years overdue.
The Great Crossover Ex-
periment worked pretty much
as expected. Giuletta was
charmed by the attention she
received at the hands of 10
children and loved the rustic
life with its whole and hearty
meals, and fresh mountain air.
She loved Sicily passionately.
As for Generosa, she was in
movie star fan heaven. Remo
took her to a different Broad.
way show every night. She had
never seen one show, imagine
a week of Kats and Chicago.
She ate in the best restaurants
where she was likely to see a
movie star. At the same time,
a strange thing had happened
in Remos's life. It's called rec-
ognition.
Because the media covered
his four day heroic rescue at-
tempt of Cowboy the entire
town knew his name. Most
restaurants comped him. For
a month he was the King of


New York. Generosa was the
happiest she had been in her
whole life. It was a month she
would never forget.
Remo continued to drive
his bright, yellow cab. He was
famous, but he chose not to'
talk about it. As a concession
to his continuing dreams of
Cowboy in the hole, he built a
strong, iron box, into which he
put a cell phone. As soon as a
new and better cell phone ap-
Speared, he replaced the old one
and kept the batteries fresh. He
didn't know why he did that,
but he did.
One beautiful autumn day
in New York he took on a
happy older Italian couple who
wanted an all day tour of the
city. This is what Remo liked
to do best.
As he was finishing his tour,
about four in the afternoon, the
old man asked, "Take us to the
Trade Center, where the build-
ings collapsed. I have a special
reason."
Remo started to object. He
never went there if he could
get out of it. It had too-many
ghosts. But when the man
said he had lost his young-
est brother, and his son there
on 9-1 1, Remo reluctantly
changed his mind.
They were at a stoplight
directly in front of the rubble
when Remo felt the car next
door had a strange looking
driver who was looking di-
rec tl,' at him. As he was about
to speak the man twisted a
handle on a box.
All Remo saw was a bright
flash of orange, and in a quick
moment, Remo, the hero of
9-11 was no more, he became
a victim of a suicide terrorist
bomber.
When the bomb squad
arrived and the debris was
cleared they found his steel
box. They opened it and heard
the box speak.in a boy's voice,
"Cowboy, beep, Cowboy, beep,
beep. Cowboy, beep."
Sicily: Same Day
Thousands of miles away,
Aldo and Generosa got the
news of Remo's unfortunate
death. Aldo sat stunned at the
kitchen table. He couldn't eat
anything, his prodigious appe-
tite for once had left him.
"I'm going to hitch up the
old mule and go for a ride to.
Sthe river where Remo and I
used to spend so much time."
Generosa understood.
The donkey cart was very
slow. First the-old mule was
very aged and Aldo weighed
at least 300 pounds, and the
way to the river was uphill, the
grade was steep.
Aldo didn't mind. His brain
was fixed on Remo. Christ! If
only he had stayed here and
made his films here. What if?
What iit \Vhat iP
When his simple mind tired
of trying to find guilt, he sud-
denly gave up. 'So what' took
.the place of 'what if, and he
accepted God's will.
Meanwhile he had reached
a point where the road build-
ers were blowing up big rocks
to make small stones to pave
the streets. Some were huge
and they tried to push them off
so they could roll down to the
river bank.
No one was working that
day. It was Sunday, but some
of the village kids were play-
ing their games imitating the
adults. They had devised a
plank and fulcrum to move
the biggest rock and with all
the boys pushing they dis-
.lodged it.
It fell with a roar. Aldo had
time to see its huge black sur-
face as it fell, crushing him and
the mule.
Generosa was calm when
she heard the news. "I knew
Remo wouldn't want to be
here without Aldo. They were
brothers, joined in the heart.
God bless them. Now they are
in heaven together."
And so eiiied the tale of two
Sicilian brothers.

MY VIEWPOINT
By John T. Spera



Dihydrogen Monoxide
"When the well is dry, we know the worth of water." Benjamin Franklin


That's the chemical name
for water or H20; you see if you
are not a chemist, you find that
there are two hydrogen mol-
ecules (consequently DI-) as

of oxygen (consequently Mono).
Simple! It is a methodology
used by all organic chemists.
Non-organic chemists read
all configurations of complex
compounds.
Water is the most wide-
spread substance on Earth;
covering more than 70 percent
of the Earth's surface. It occurs
in the oceans, rivers and lakes
and.is in the ground and the
very air we breathe! Water is
ubiquitous!
Without water, life wouldn't
have existed. The fact is every
living creature is mostly made
of water; in fact, the human
body is approximately two-
thirds of water. Most scientists
believe that life itself began


in the salty sea water. Inci-
dentally, the amniotic fluid is
salty (like sea water) in which
it "floats" through the human
embryo. But, humans and
other animals cannot drink
sea water
Water determines the Earth's
climate and regulates it by not
letting it get too hot or too cold.
The oceans absorb and release
the sun's heat rather slowly.
That's why we welcome the
Gulfs balmy breezes when its
winter and its cool breezes in
the hot summer.
History has shown, that wa-
ter has been human's slave as a
source of power, as well as our
master (tsunamis and flood-
ing). Great civilizations have
risen around plentiful supplies
of water and consequently
fallen or moved out of villages,
towns and cities, when their
supply of water is turned to
drought or is exhausted! Civili-


zations have moved across the
world when rain has failed to
come and crops have withered
and starvation has ensued!
Occasionally, rains have fallen
too greatly and too suddenly
and rivers have overflowed,
causing enormous destruction
of property and drowning of
large numbers of people, such
as monsoons in India!
Today, our demand in water
is continuously increasing due
to population increases and
factories producing increas-
ingly more products; the grow-
ing need for more water is ap-
parent. Paradoxically, there is
as much water on Earth today
as there was when dinosaurs
populated the planet millions
of years ago! That can be ex-
plained by the evaporation
by the sun, then repeatedly
falling back to Earth as rain
(distillation). Water is used
and reused time and again; it


Volunteer Ministers Provide Holiday Wish

TheVolunteer Ministers of the Church of Scientology of Tampa paid a special
visit to the elderly residents of the Whispering Springs nursing home this

is never used up!
But in this modern era we
are polluting our rivers and
lakes far beyond our ability to
"revitalize" them.
At the Fairmount Water
Works (Philadelphia), volun-
teer tour guide Charles B. Wil-
liams, who is qualified by his
scientific training in chemistry,
related in the 1980s, "Only 11"
species of fish were found lo-
cally in the Schuylkill River.
More recently, biologists have
identified 37 species in the
river." Mr. Williams optimisti-
cally said, "If we put our efforts
to unpollute our rivers and
lakes, it can be done."
-The areas that are heav-.
ily populated include Europe,
Southeast Asia, the Eastern
United States, Indian and
many parts of China, all of
which generally have enough
rainfall. But, about half of
the Earth's land does not get
enough rain, including most of
Asia, central Australia, most of
northern Africa, and the Mid-
East. The total amount of water
on Earth is enough for all our
requirements. However, Earth's
water is distributed unevenly.
Some regions suffer a constant
lack of rain, while other places
have plenty of water but still
have unfortunate droughts at
one time or another. But, due
to overbuilding, expansion
and greed, people have created
numerous problems with pol-
lution and mismanaging water
supplies.
The people of America re-
quire drinking water that is ab-
sent of bacteria and is sparking
clear with a pleasant taste
and not malodorous. If the
city or town cannot provide
this water, just step inside a
supermarket and see the piles
and piles of water stacked high
to provide this water. Caveat
Emptor (buyer beware) be-
cause everybody's getting into
the "bottling water" act and

Archbishop
v.:: The University of South
Florida welcomes Archbishop
Desmond Tutu who will deliver
his lecture, "No Future without
I Forgiveness: An Evening with
'Archbishop Desmond Tutu,"
on Thursday, January 19 at
7 p.m. at the USF Sun Dome.
Admission is free and open to
the public.
Born in South Africa, Tutu
became a world-renowned
activist for human rights. He
entered the priesthood of the
Anglican church in 1960,
paving the way for his lifelong
commitment to speaking out
against apartheid. In 1975, he
became the first black African


to this date the FDA (Federal
Drug Administration) has not
issued definite requirements of
this water for sale!
Hard water is water that
contains the calcium and
magnesium as the bicarbon-
ates. When the water is reddish
brown it may contain ferrous
(iron), which is good if you have
an iron-deficiency anemia.
There's a lot of chemistry in-
volved here, but you can make
hard water into soft water by
adding certain chemicals to the
hard water.
So much thought is given
about the scarcity of drinking
water that the inventor of the
Segway, Dean Kamen, is inter-
ested in a portable distillation
that will purify water through
a process of distillation; it can
purify tainted liquids and even
urine! Mr. Kamen is concerned
that "1.1 billion people in the
world that don't have access
to water, that this small box
can take any source of water
and turn it into pure, distilled
water." I am sure we bank on
Dean Kamen to provide us with
an efficient desalination plant,
to convert sea water into pure
drinking water; not the desalt
plant fiasco here in Tampa! We
don't want the Hillsborough
River so polluted that we can
walk across it.
I am sure you all heard or
read The Rime of the Ancient
Mariner by Samuel Coleridge,
where the hapless mariner
inspired the famous line, "Wa-
ter, water everywhere but not
a drop to drink." This is an
exaggeration, of course, but
in reality the only "drinking"
water available is the sea that
surrounded the Ancient Mari-
ner. We don't want to be that
Ancient Mariner and not have
enough water for the world to
drink and bathe in. And what's
Most important is having water
for our crops to sustain fu-
ture life' on this planet!

Cathedral in Johannesburg.
From 1976 to 1978, he was
bishop of Lesotho. In .1978, he
became the first black general
secretary of the South African
Council of Churches.
In-1984, Tutu was awarded
the Nobel Prize for Peace, "not
only as a gesture of support to
him and to the South African
Council of Churches of which
he is a leader, but also to all in-
dividuals and groups in South
Africa who, with their concern

Two years later, Tutu was
elected archbishop of Cape
Town. He was the first black
African to serve in this posi-
tion, which placed him at the
head of the Anglican Church
in South Africa, as the arch-
bishop of Canterbury is the
spiritual leader of the Church
of England. International eco-
nomic pressure and internal
dissent forced the South Af-
rican government to reform.
In 1990, Nelson Mandela of
the African National Congress
was released after almost 27
years in prison. The following
year the government began the
repeal of racially discrimina-
tory laws.
After the country's first
multi-racial elections in 1994,
President Mandela appointed
Archbishop Tutu to chair the
Truth and Reconciliation Com-
mission, investigating the hu-
man rights violations, of the
previous 34 years:, The arch-
bishop counseled forgiveness
and cooperation, rather than
revenge for past injustice.
In 1996, he retired as Arch-
bishop of Cape Town and was
named archbishop emeritus.
Today he is a professor of the-
ology at Emory University in
Atlanta.

'Report


T e Y2By Richard Muga



The Year 2005 in Retrospect


The year 2005 was not the
best of years for the west coast
fishers. We were plagued by a
red tide outbreak the likes of
which none of us can remem-
ber. The numbers of dead fish
that littered our shores were
not reflective of the total num-
bers that were actually lost,
as many carcasses floated out
with the currents or otherwise
remained at sea. The affect of
the red tide on the future of the
fisheries can only be said to be
uncertain. Spill on some of our
rivers set the ecology of those
streams back dozens of years.
In the Tampa Bay area we
were spared from the ravages
of the main bodies of tropical
hurricanes. Not so lucky for
those further south where
many ofus fish regularly. One
thing for sure, wave action
caused by high winds offshore
is certain to have changed
some of the traditional habi-
tats we regularly fished. For
our good luck we must be
thankful.
Still, most of us are ex--
tremely thankful to live in this
area. We appreciate thriving
where the sun shines most of
the time and where still, we
enjoy the mostly unrestricted
use of our Tampa Bay and.


Gulf of Mexico waters. And we
are hopeful of their ecological
survival.
We must also recognize that
as our community grows so
will we experience additional
difficulties outdoors. Boat
traffic is likely to increase, we
will experience a deficit in high
and dry marinas and on the
water berths and launching
ramps will become increas-
ingly crowded. More caution
than ever must be exercised
on the water. Courtesy and
patience must be paramount
at the launching ramps. And
maybe now is the time to con-
sider joint ventures with other
fishers in order to reduce the
numbers and costs of single
ownership of boats.

Our business thirsty com-
munities have promoted our
geographic blessings to for-
eign venues. We advertise the
magnificence of our beaches,
our balmy weather and until
recently our less expensive
cost of living. Our market-
ing efforts have paid off and
private individuals as well as
businesses are coming into our
area in unprecedented num-
bers. Consequently, hunting
in Hillsborough County, except
for small exceptions, is all but


gone. There are not sufficient
parcels of land in our county
for the general public to enjoy
the sport of hunting. Fresh wa-
ter fishing is another pastime
that has slowly disappeared
as only a few, mostly private
lakes remain where the general
public can fish. And our rivers,
estuaries and saltwater fisher-
ies are constantly threatened
by contaminant spills, runoffs
and building encroachments.
As the saying goes," you can't
have the pie.and eat it too."
Is the future of outdoor
sports doomed in our west
coast? Maybe not, but sincere,
significant and courageous
efforts must be made by our
local and state elected officials
to find an equitable balance
between growth and preserva-
tion of natural resources. That,
dear readers, is our job. We
must be:cognizant of the value
to our community of those we
elect to public office. We must
inquire of their platforms,
their backgrounds, education,
public record and personal
character. Those who do not
deliver what they promised
during their campaigns, who
do not represent the interests
of their constituents honestly
and vigorously must not be re-
elected even if they are people
we have known.
In retrospect, can you say
that our in terest in govern-
ment has been as keen as it
should be? Do you take time'
to vote? Do you question the
candidates about those'issues
that are significant to you and
your community?
If you have an interest in
maintaining a quality outdoor
environment where we can pre-
serve and pass-on to our chil-
dren the traditions of fishing
and hunting, be a responsible
citizen. Maybe this year, if you
care, will be the year when we
can make a difference in our
outdoor world.
BE A GOOD SPORT!

First Bowl Game Was


a Thrill Despite Loss


Last Saturday was an his-
toric day for the USF Bulls'
football team good on one
hand and bad on the other.
USF played in the Meineke Car
Care Bowl in Charlotte, the
Bull's first bowl game in their
brief nine-year history. Unfor-
tunately, South Florida suf-
fered its first ever shutout loss
14-0 to the Wolfpack of N.C.
State. Despite the disappoint-
ing result in the game, there
was still plenty of excitement to
be had by the 5,000-plus fans
who made the trip to Charlotte
and let their green and gold
pride be known to all.
Head coach Jim Leavitt and
the Bulls will take a lot away
from this experience despite
the loss. The program has
taken a giant step forward in
the ongoing building process.
USF is well ahead of expecta-
tions after making it to a bowl
game in its very first season
:in the Big East Conference.
Leavitt, the.coaching staff, the
players, and the fans all now
know the exhilarating feeling of
makingit to the college football
postseason. It's a feeling that
all associated with USF want
and expect to feel again.
Given that the game was in
the State of North Carolina, it
was no surprise that the N.C.
State fans outnumbered the
USF fans at Bank of America
Stadium. However, sitting in
T the stands and listening to the
wild ovation the Bulls received
from their supporters, I got the
impression that the USF fans
equaled, it not surpassed, the


emotion shown by those in
Wolfpack red.
Despite being shutout,
the Bulls certainly had their
chances against N.C. State.
USF took its opening drive and
marches impressively down
the field into Wolfpack terri-
tory. When the drive stalled,
the Bulls missed a field goal
that would've given them the
first points of the game.
The USF offense would go
on to drive the ball inside the
N.C. State 30-yard line three
times in the contest. Senior
running back Andre Hall had
a marvelous game, rushing for
188 yards and receiving for 49
yards. But inconsistent play at
the quarterback position and a
stingy Wolfpack defense kept
the Bulls out of the end zone
and off the scoreboard.
Even after the disappointing
loss, the attitudes displayed
amongst the Bull fans were
-very positive. Everyone seemed
to believe that this was the
start of something big for USF.
There was a feeling of certainty.
among the group that this trip
to Charlotte was the first of
many bowl trips to come for
its team. Count me in as one
of those believers. The loss of
the game did not dampen the
excitement of the experience.

si talk sports with Tampa Bay.

International Film Festival
The fourth annual Tampa International Film Festival will
run February 3 11, 2006 at Sunrise Cinemas and the Mu-
seum.of Science and Industry (MOSI). A major retrospective
of the Indian master filmmaker Buddhadeb Dasgupta will-be .
presented at the festival, along with his most recent feature
Kaalpurush (Memories in the Mist). Dasgupta is a well-known
Bengali director, writer and producer. He will attend the festival
and introduce his films.
Award-winning Canadian director Bernard Emond will at-
tend the closing night of the festival and will introduce his film
La Neuvaine (The Novena).
The Tampa International Film Festival continues to present
the best of international cinema and will screen major films
from China, India, Spain, Germany, Italy, Hungary, Argentina,
Peru and Canada.
In addition, the Education Channel will program and sponsor
a sidebar on American independent cinema. This is the first
time that the festival has programmed American independent
films.
"I believe the films that we have this year represent a truly
exciting and unique opportunity to experience the rich cultural
heritage of world cinema," said Dr. Rob Tregenza, founder and
director of the festival. "In our fourth year we have gained in-
creased international attention and this has greatly added to
our ability to program the best cinema for a new world."
The festival, which has run in April in years past, takes its
new February time slot in response to a survey of the Tampa
Bay area film-going community, who indicated that February
would be an ideal festival time.
Tickets are $8 for adults, $7 for students and $5 for seniors.
A Gold Pass, which provides entrance to all screenings and
events, is available for $200.

It's now 2006 and time to
look back at the year that was
on the big screen in 2005.
When I think back to the films
of the past year, one word
comes to mind disappoint-
ment. It was a down year finan-
cially at the box office and for
legitimate reason. There just
weren't many movies to shout
about. With the quality of
motion pictures falling, many
people seem happy to find some
other form of entertainment.
Despite the disappointment
of the,2.0.5 films, there were
still soir.e movies that caught
my attention. While I must
admit there are some films of
last year that have just recently
been released that I have yet
to see, I will go ahead with my
assessment of the ones I did
watch.
My favorite movie of the
year is one that seems to have
been forgotten by many critics.
It's Ridley Scott's Kingdom of
Heaven, which follows the path
of a young blacksmith (Or-
lando Bloom) in the Crusades
during the battle for the holy
city of Jerusalem. Stunningly
beautiful and fully absorbing,


Kingdom was a masterpiece
-that deserved.. more. acclaim
than it received.
The most surprising "film
was Christopher Nolan's Bat-
man Begins, which brings the
Dark Night character back to
the screen with a vengeance.
Intelligent, well-acted and
emotionally powerful, this new
Batman is the best of the series
and very well could be the best
comic book movie ever made.
Batman Begins is good enough
to make you forget about the
dreadful Batman and Robin
of 1997.
,My biggest disappointment
of the year was unquestion-
ably War of the Worlds. The
previews were jaw-dropping,
making you think it would be
a movie-going experience you'd
never forget. After watching
it, the first thought that came
to. my mind was, "Did Steven
Spielberg- quite possibly the
greatest director who ever lived
- really make this movie?" A
good cast and great special ef-
fects are wasted with a lifeless
screenplay.
George Lucas concluded his
magnificent box office-busting


outer space saga with Star
Wars Episode III: Revenge of
the Sitht It was far-and away
the best of the Star Wars pre-
quels, and it brought back
some of the magic and excite-
ment of the original trilogy.
Peter Jackson followed up
his Lord of the Rings trilogy
with a remake of King Kong.
Jackson's version is a thrill-
ing, if a bit too long, special
effects bonanza that certainly
gives the original 1933 Kong
justice..
Good independent films
(The Squid And The Whale)
combined with some terrific
documentaries (MURDERBALL,
Mad Hot Ballroom, and March
of the Penguins) manages to
spark some life into an other-
wise unimpressive year at the
movies. A desperate plea to
Hollywood: Please find some
originality!
Here are my Top Five Movies
of 2005:
1. Kingdom of Heaven
2. Batman Begins
3. MURDERBALL
4. The Squid And The
Whale
5. North Country
