I'm on vacation this week so
there is no column. Here are a
few Bushism's to hold you over
until I return next week:
"I'm also not very analytical.
You know I don't spend a lot of
time thinking about myself,
about why I do things." aboard


Air Force One, June 4, 2003
"All up and down the differ-
ent aspects of our society, we had
meaningful discussions. Not only
in the Cabinet Room, but prior
to this and after this day, our
secretaries, respective secretar-
ies, will continue to interact to


create the conditions necessary
for prosperity to reign." Wash-
ington, D.C., May 19, 2003
"We've had a great weekend
here in the Land of the En-
chanted." Albuquerque, N.M.,
May 12, 2003 (New Mexico's
state nickname is "Land of En-
chantment")
"We've got hundreds of sites
to exploit, looking for the chemi-
cal and biological weapons that
we know Saddam Hussein had
prior to our entrance into Iraq."-
Santa Clara, Calif., May 2, 2003
"You're free. And freedom is
beautiful. And, you know, it'll
take time to restore chaos and
order order out of chaos. But
we will." Washington, D.C.,

"[The Space Shuttle] Colum-
bia carried in its payroll class-
room experiments from some
of our students in America."

ficing on behalf of our nation
than, you know, endless hours of
testimony on congressional hill."

leaders in Moscow, June 4, 2002
"Do you have blacks, too?" -

In the spring of 1S93, St. lo-
Feph Academy was instructing
176 students and well on its way.
The Sisters of St. Joseph were
still living in the crowded con-
vent at the back of Our Lady of
Mlercy Church at 1~th St. & 10th
Ave.
By February of 1895, the sisters
have saved enough money to
build a convent on the lot acio-s
the street. The convent, a frame
building was completed in 1S95-
located on the lot on the corner
r,f 7lTh St. and 11th A\e It was
tAol:lrpoin-. CPI -ito1iei .. d u-a
of $1,675.00. 33' x 48' ft in size -
11' ft high-lst floor, 9'ft high -
-econd floor.
Our Lady of \lercy church, the
2 story school building was be-
hind the church building and
the St. Joseph Convent.
Thus began the task of educa-
tion in the early inception of
Ybor City.
Later on in 1901 as shown here,
another building was- construct-
ed near the main building of the
convent with a bridge way con-
necting the two buildings.

Ganaron los Devil Rays
El dominicano Jorge Sosa gan6 su primer partido desde abril,
al llevar a los Devil Rays de Tampa Bay a veneer 3-2 a los Me-
dias Blancas de Chicago. Fue su primer racha de tres victorias
consecutivas para los Devil Rays bajo las 6rdenes de su nuevo
dirigente Lou Piniella. El piloto prometi6 el. mes pasado que se
tefiiria el cabello si su joven equipo ganaba tres partidos en fila
en cualquier moment en esta temporada.
El dominicano Sosa (2-6) lanz6 cinco entradas y un tercio
para ganar por primera ocasi6n desde que venci6 a Baltimore
el 19 de abril. Por los Medias Blancas, los puertorriquefios
Roberto Alomar de 5-2 con una.anotada; y Jos6 Antonio Valentin
de 4-0. El panamefio Carlos Lee de 3-0. El dominicano Miguel
Olivo de 2-0. Por los Devil Rays, el puertorriquefio Javier
Valentin de 3-1 con una anotada y una remolcada. El
dominicano Julio Lugo de 3-2 con una impulsada.
SAMY SOSA NO FUE ELEGIDO PARA JUEGO DE ESTRELLAS
El clAsico se jugara el martes 15 de julio en el US Cellular
Field de Chicago, parque de su equipo. El dominicano Sammy
Sosa entendi6 por qu6 qued6 fuera de la selecci6n de estrellas
de la Liga Nacional. Afn asi, estA decepcionadd. El seis veces
miembro del Todos Estrellas, quien ha hecho el equipo por
cinco campafias.consecutivas, batea para .291 con 13jonrones

propio equipo. Sosa perdi6 los primeros 17 partidos luego de

(pasa a la pagina 6)


Editorial Leonardo Le6n
En una especie de diploma-
cia elusiva, el mayor lider so-
cial de la historic reciente afri-
cana, Nobel de Paz y ex-presi-
dente de Sur-Africa, Nelson
Mandela, decidi6 viajar a In-
glaterrajustamente cuando el
president Bush realize una
gira de 5 dias por 5 naciones
africanas.
Aunque Mandela abierta-
mente ha criticado la posici6n
"beligerante" de Bush, opo-
ni6ndose rotundamente a la
guerra contra Irak de manera
unilateral sin el conceso de las
Naciones Unidas, 6ste siempre
ha mostrado una vocaci6n
genuina para negociar.
Esta conspicua ausencia
revela grandes fallas diplom&-
ticas en la administraci6n
Bush, que parece ignorar que
la presencia de Mandela es vi-
tal para asegurar el 6xito de la
agenda presidential. Esta
arrogancia o ignorancia diplo-
mitica puede salirle muy
costosa a Bush y a los Estados
Unidos.
-Si Bush realmente va a al
Africa a "estrechar las relacio-
nes con los Estados Unidos",


de acuerdo con el portavoz de
la Casa Blanca, por qu6 omitir
al pacifista y muy influyente
Mandela?
Para Mandela, quien perma-
neci6 encarcelado por casi 30
afios debido a sus ideas politi-
cas en contra del Apartheid
Africano, negociar afin con sus
captores, jams ha sido 6bice
para establecer puentes de
comunicaci6n y resoluci6n a los
problems africanos, much
menos lo seria reconstruir su
relaci6n con Bush.
La ausencia de Mandela de
esta cumbre es preocupante y
nuevamente obliga a reflexio-
nar acerca de las verdaderas
intenciones de este viaje de
Bush a Senegal, Sur Africa,
Bostwana, Uganda y Nigeria.
La posici6n de los Estados
Unidos frente al Africa necesita
urgentemente ser revisada.
Responderle a los problems
africanos con ret6rica y sin
ayuda real no s61o es inmoral
sino contraproducente, pues
esta visto que los paises no
desarrollados son el habitat
perfect para grupos terro-
ristas. Esta es, quizas, una de
las lecciones mas importantes


post- septiembre 11.
Mas del 90 por ciento de la
poblaci6n africana vive en la
pobreza absolute y casi el 50
por ciento se haya infectada
con el SIDA o es portadora del
mortal virus HIV.
Como si esto fuese poco la
inestabilidad political del conti-
nente es el origen de continues
guerras intestines como las del
Congo, Sudan, Kenia y ahora
Liberia, en las que se han
cometido genocidios y se si-
guen flagrantemente violando
los derechos humans.
La promesa de Bush de
destinar 15 billones de d6lares
para elAfrica para combatir el
SIDA entire otros, es un pro-
yecto que comienza muerto
pues la misma Casa Blanca ya
redujo de 3 a 2 billones la can-

El president George W. Bush, al iniciar en Senegal una gira por Africa,
calific6 la esclavitud de los negros en Estados Unidos como "uno de los
peores crimenes de la historic". "Se les rob6 la libertad y la vida,.y fueron
vendidos", sefial6 Bush luego de visitar una edificaci6n antigua que en esos
siglos fue usada como un centro de procesamiento de miles de africanos,
que fueron arreados a bordo de barcos que los llevaron a la esclavitud en
Am6rica. Pese a la dolorosa historic que comparten, Bush no se disculp6
por la esclavitud y s6lo manifest que Estados Unidos y las naciones del
Africa deben cooperar a fin de erradicar las enfermedades y la guerra, y
darse aliento para establecer mayores vinculos comerciales. Bush estaba
acompafiado del president senegal6s Abdoulaye Wade. Bush visit la Isla
Goree despubs de sostener una reuni6n en Dakar con Wade y los jefes de
estado de otras siete democracies de Africa Occidental. Indic6 que ain no
habia decidido si Estados Unidos se involucraria en Liberia. Asimismo

Iglesia First United Metho-
dist Church of Tampa (FUMC)
mantiene sus puertas abier-
tas a todos aquellos hispa-
nos que quieren estar cerca
de Dios.
La pastora Lia Icaza-Wil-
letts dirige los cultos (servi-
cios religiosos) en ingl6s y
hasta hace poco tambidn los
ofrecia en espafiol en la nue- I
va Iglesia Metodista Emma-
nuel, ubicada en la esquina
de la Florida y Tyler, en el cen-
tro de Tampa.
Willetts, fund la iglesia
donde se ofrecen estos cul-
tos, y empez6 hace dos ainos
a dar classes biblicas en espa-
fiol a un pequefio grupo de
hispanos.
"Nuestra misi6n era empe-
zar una iglesia que ofreciera
los cultos en espafiol, es decir
extender los servicios que
ofreciamos en ingl6s en FU-
MC, a la comunidad latina",
explica Willetts. "Comenc6 a
dar studios biblicos en es-
paiol y poco a poco se fue for-
mando un grupo con el cual
se estableci6 la iglesia que
sirve a la comunidad latina".
Hoy en dia la Iglesia Meto-
dista Emmanuel, cuenta con
25 miembros de varias nacio-
nalidades como puertorrique-
fios, cubanos, mexicanos, y
venezolanos, entire otros.
El prop6sito de la iglesia en
espafiol, que comenz6 hace
un mes, es ofrecerles a los
hispanos "la adoraci6n en su
idioma", comenta Willetts.
Con el pastor, Jacinto Gon-
zalez, quien ahora realize los
cultos en espafiol los domin-
gos, Willetts ofrece classes
biblicas especificas para.
nifios, j6venes y adults. Los
temas de estas classes son los
valores, autoestima, comuni-
caci6n entire los padres y los
hijos, y la importancia de' la
familiar, etc.
Otros servicios que se
ofrecen son los sermons
dominicales a las 11:00 am y
los studios biblicos todos
los mi6rcoles a las 7:00 pim.
Ademas de estos servicios,
FUMC realize "Praise Cafe",
nombre dado a una congrega-
ci6n informal de j6venes que
socializan con otros que com-
parten sus creencias religio-
sas.
"El Praise Cafe es algo nue-
vo que se inici6 en abril y he-
mos tenido much 6xito. En
estos moments este servicio
es solamente para los j6ve-
nes americanos o los que ha-
blan inglis pero queremos
ofrecerles a los hispanos una
congregaci6n similar donde
ellos pueden venir a escuchar
mfisica, disfrutar de bocadi-
tos y refrescos mientras char-
lan con amistades", dice Wil-
letts. "Lo inico que necesi-
tamps para empezar el grupo

nos que deseen venir".

labor cotidiana como pastora
y como madre no present un
conflict laboral.
"El trabajo que yo desem-
pefio con las iglesias es una
vocaci6n, es un modo de vida
que me gusta much y en el
cual mi familiar est& igual-
mente involucrada. Mis hijas
me ayudan a veces con los
nifios pequefios en las classes
de studios biblicos, y mi
esposo tambidn es ministry
pero de otra iglesia", agrega
Willetts.
En: un principip, ella no
tenia claro que profesi6n es-
coger. Estaba estudiando
administraci6n de empresa
en Miami cuando un dia la
'invitaron a ir a una iglesia
metodista. Fue alli donde
Willetts opt6 por tomar la
vocaci6n del ministerio reli-
gioso; A pesar de que estaba
confirmada en la religion cat6-
'lica, Willetts decidi6 renun-
ciar a ella porque sabia que
nunca iba a poder ejercer la
posici6n de pastora o lider
spiritual.
"Yo sentia el llamado de
Dios y queria servirle convir-
tiendome en ministry por eso
me cambi6 de religion. Decidi
entregarme a esta vocaci6n
por complete y creo que estoy
sirviendo a Dios y a mi comu-
nidad de la mejor manera que
puedo", dice Willetts.
Obtuvo su maestria en
Educaci6n Cristiana de Sca-
.rritt Graduate School en
Nashville, Tennessee y otra
maestria en Divinidad de la
Universidad Emory en Atlan-
ta, Georgia.
.Willetts pidi6 ser asignada
a la sede de Tampa, porque
queria estar cerca de sus
raices latinas. De Nashville
se mud6 a la Bahia y desde
entonces ha estado con FUMC
sirviendo a su comunidad, en

Adem&s de su trabajo con
las dos iglesias, Willetts esta

nidad. Sirve en la junta direc-
tiva de la organizaci6n bene-
fica Kiwanis Club of Tampa
que ayuda a nifos desfavo-
recidos y ancianos. Tambi6n
presta sus servicios en HOPE

Una vez mas hay indicios
de que Saddam Hussein est&
vivo y se encuentra escondido
en Iraq. El viernes pasado, la
cadena de television arabe, Al
Jazeera, estuvo repitiendo
constantemente una graba-
ci6n que supuestamente era
la voz de Hussein. En dicha
grabaci6n, Hussein sefialaba
que estaba en Iraq, elogiaba
a aquellos que estaban com-
batiendo a las tropas america-
nas y advertia que castigara
a los iraquies que cooperen
con las fuerzas de ocupaci6n.
A pesar de que no se sabe
si la grabaci6n es aut6ntica,
o cuando se hizo, la voz
mencionaba como fecha el 14
de junio. El efecto de esta
grabaci6n es el impact sico-
l6gico que crea en la poblaci6n
de Iraq. Hay que recorder que
las dictaturas prolongadas,
como lo fue la de Hussein,
crean unos controls sicol6-
gicos de miedo y terror que le
sirven muy bien al tirano para
tener bajo la bota a toda una
poblaci6n: El miedo de que
Saddam Hussein est6 vivo y
pueda regresar al poder ya
esta causando que muchos

Por: Marta MulMn Romero
La ciencia, el arte, la indus-
tria, el derecho, cualquier ma-
nifestaci6n individual o colec-
tiva de vida ha tenido en Paris,
la Ciudad Luz, capital del
mundo donde naci6 .el lema
human de Libertad, Igualdad,
y Fratemidad.
Estos tres principios vitales
de la historic de la civilizaci6n
humana que hoy por hoy.
apoyan las instituciones del.
mundo modern nacieron bajo
el amparo de la Declaraci6n de
los Derechos del Hombre.
Se proclamaron en 1789 ,
inspirados en el ordenamiento
de las leyes civiles llamado
C6digo napole6nico o C6digo
Civil Frances.
A partir de ese memento,
tanto en Europa como en Ame-
rica se produjo un movimiento
general de codificaci6n de las
leyes modeladas en ese c6digo,
cuya sanci6n marco, a su vez,
una etapa fundamental en la
historic del derecho universal.
Es necesario recorder que
cuando las colonies norteame-
ricanas no pudieron soportar
por mas tiempo el yugo ingl6s,
Francia le prest6 generosa
ayuda en su lucha. De ahi que
terminada 6sta, Ilenos de
entusiasmo por las verdades
contenidas en la declaraci6n de
la Independencia Americana.
Aquellos voluntarios repa-
triados que se habian dado
cuenta del significado de las-
palabras: "Todos los hombres
han nacido iguales", comen-
zaron a valorar la' verdadera
trascendencia de las palabras
Libertad. Igualdad y Fraternidad.
El 14 de julio de 1789 el


pueblo de Paris -tom6 por
asalto la Bastilla, l6brega
prisi6n del estado y la arraso.
Habia estallado al fin la
torment; era el principio de'
la revoluci6n.
La jactanciosa frase del
arrogante Luis XIV: "El estado
soy yo" habia quedado con-
vertida, per voz del pueblo en
esta sencilla declaraci6n: "No-
sotros somos el Estado".
Luis XVI era el infortunado
monarca, bisnieto de Luis XIV,
lamado el Rey Sol, que inutil-
mente recurri6 al llamado de
tropas suizasy alemanas para
mantener el orden.
Juzgado y guillotinado por
la Revoluci6n, ces6 asi un largo
period de cerca de 200 afios
en los que seis generaciones de
franceses habian vivido en
complete ignorancia del
gobierno del pais.
A los gritos de: IA las armas
y Abajo la Bastillal, lo sucedie-
ron finalmente, "iViva la Na-
ci6n, y Viva la Repiblica!".
Paris form su Guardia
Nacional formada por ciuda-
danos, y al mando de la misma
fue nombrado, Lafayette, que
habia peleado al lado del Was-
hington, en Am6rica; y este
cuerpo escogi6 como distintivo
una escarapela tricolor roja,
blanca y azul.
A A imitaci6n de Paris, que
habia formado su guardian
national, no tardaron otras
ciudades del reino en former
compaiias semejances, una de
ellas, la Guardia de Marsella,
decidi6 dirigirse a Paris y enar-
bolando una bandera en que
estaban escritas las palabras
"Los Derechosdel Hombre" em-


f IFt Ia --w urjfSm i
prendieron la her6ica march
mientras entonaban el himno
mas. inspirado de cuantos
existen: La Marsellesa, canci6n
pa-tri6tica que ha llegado a ser
el himno national de Francia.
Cuando los marselleses
repetian las palabras: tAllors
enfants de la patrie! Adelante
hijos de la Patria, la muche-
dumbre ante la cual pasaban
arrebatadas de entusiamo, vo-
ciferaban: i Aux armes, cito-
yens! Alas Armas ciudadanos.
Rouger de Lisle, su autor, la
titul6 primeramente como
"Canto de Guerra del Ej6rcito
del Rhin". El 14 de julio es la
fiesta national de los franceses.

Consideramos absurda la
incoherencia de una political
exterior que no logra alcanzar
los objetivos planteados al
inicio de la campafia military.
Come sefialamos: en Afganis-
tin, Osama Bin Laden anda

ahora se habla de enviar

Despu6s de haber perdido su mando autoritario de mis de siete d6cadas en
la presidencia de Mexico, el PRI (Partido Revolucionario Institucional) ha
probado supersistencia en el poder con el apoyo del pueblo. La influencia
que sigue teniendo este partido en la political mexicana se confirm cuando
el fin de semana pasado gan6, aunque por una pequefia mayoria, las elec-
ciones para la camara baja de diputados. Algunos analistas politicos tratan
de explicar la vitalidad del PRI, al cual se le abribuia que a menudo robaba
a los pobres para dar a los ricos, pero de alguna manera siempre comprando
la conciencia political de la naci6n a traves de engafios y favors politicos.
El PRI esta perdiendo fuerza pero aun no esta muerto por complete, espe-
cialmente en la region de Campeche donde la ausencia de industries priva-
das permit que el gobierno siga siendo el mayor empleador. Atm asi, muchos
se van con el adagio, "Mejor malo conocido, que bueno por conocer".

en Biloxi, Mississsippi, dijeron
los promotores. Ali, quien el 21
de junio en la cartelera del
combat entire Lennox Lewis y
Vitali Klitschko detuvo por
nocAut en el octavo asalto a
Valerie Mahfood, tiene un
record de 15-0 con 12 triunfos
por la via rdpida. Martin, qui6n
ayud6 a ganar notoriedad al
boxeo femenil en los afios '90,
ha ganado 45 peleas, 30 de
ellas por nocaut, con dos
derrotas y dos empates.
La filtima pelea de Martin
fue en diciembre, ganando por
decision sobre Mia St. John.

LOS BUCANEROS
El entrenador en jefe Jon
Gruden funcion6 de maravilla-
en su primer afio con Tampa
Bay, transform a unos talen-
tosos Buccaneers en campeo-
nes del Super Bowl. La defense
de Tampa fue dominant, como
de costumbre- esta unidad
permiti6 apenas 12.3 puntos
por juego (lider en la liga), y
252.8 yards por partido (casi
40 yards menos que cualquier
otro equipo).
Mientras tanto, el veteran
quarterback Brad Johnson
brill6 bajo el tutelaje de
Gruden, lanz6 22 touchdowns
y s6lo seis intercepciones.
dLo pueden hacer de nue-
vo? Ninguno de los iltimos
campeones del Super Bowl (Pa-
triots, Ravens, Rams, Broncos)
ha ganado su division al aino
siguiente, o avanzado mas alla
de la primer ronda de play-
offs. Los Bucs parecen estar
cerca de acabar con este
syndromee', al star casi intac-
tos e incluso mejorados en un


SUSCRIBASE: 248-3921


par de aspects.
Pero algunos problems le-
gales de algunos de sus juga-
dores y el aumento de compe-
titividad en su division seran
algunos aspects a veneer.
Es dificil encontrar hoyos en
la plantilla de Tampa Bay.
Tienen a varias estrellas del
lado de la defensive. Aunque
el profundo libre Dexter Jack-
son, el MVP del Super Bowl, se


fue a Arizona, el quinto es-
quinero Dwight Smith trabaj6
en esa posici6n en el mini-
camp. El ataque, tiene como
principal problema la falta de
un corredor medio No. 1. Pero
del lado positive, Tampa tiene
uno de los mejores grupos de
corredores de la NFL, con el
talent de Jones, Pittman,
Aaron Stecker y el corredor de
poder Mike Alstott.


Es muy probable que al
menos uno de ellos tenga 6xito
esteafio -silalinea semantiene
saludable. En el papel, Tampa
Bay parece candidate a repeur-
bueno, a excepci6n de los pro-
blemas de pretemporada. Pitt-
man, Smith y el tackle ofensivo
Kenyatta Walker fueron arres-
tados en los fltimos meses. Los
Bucs necesitan evitar estos
desaguisados en el future.


Afortunadamente la Gloria no es Eterna

Un trabajador taladra la base del busto del dictator espafiol, Francisco
Franco, en Pontereas, Espafia, despues de que el Consejo de la ciudad
decidiera removerlo de su sitial preferential considerando la historic de
abusos ybarabarismos que el dictador cometi6 durante su regimen que dur6
desde 1939, hasta su muerte acaecida en 1975. El fundador y ex-director de

Mujeres Hindfies Se Modernizan Noticias de Inmigracion

: .- Director d,* Innigiracion de Catholic Chariiies
Por William Rosas


En varias parties del mundo, las mujeres se estan liberando un poco mias
cada dia. En Londres, la juventud del Asia Meridional esta modificando la
tradici6n de matrimonios arreglados y actualizandola de acuerdo a la 6poca
cibern6tica del siglo XXI. Mujeres hinddes estin rompiendo con las barreras
que existen debido a las antiguas cultures creadas por sus padres y abuelos.
Estas j6venes modernas, de 20 afios y mas, participan en lo que se llama
"citas ripidas", un event que ahora esta de moda y continue proliferandose
entire los londinenses hindies y paldstanies de la clase media y alta. Mientras
que antes era todo un ritual ceremonioso para conocer con quien estas
j6venes se iban a casar, el cualinvolucraba a los padres de las dos families,
ahora conocen a sus futuras parejas a trav6s de portales de Internet, salas
de chat o conversaciones virtuales y anuncios personales. Algunos padres
aun se rehusan aceptar este modo de socializarse, pero various se estan mo-
dernizando debido a las necesidades que tienen de expander sus families.

iOjo! Se Vence el Plazo
Les recordamos a los nicaragCenses y a los hondurefios que
el plazo para registrarse nuevamente para la TPS (protecci6n
provisional) se va a vencer. El dia 7 de julio es el fltimo dia en
que su solicitud puede ser recibida en la oficina de inmigraci6n
en Texas. Deben diligenciar y enviar el formulario 1-821, el cual
es libre de costo, es decir que no tienen que pagar nada para
efectuar este trimite. Si necesita renovar su permiso de trabajo,
debe lenar el formulario 1-765 y remitirlo con dos fotos y un
giro postal ("money order") de $120 a favor de "U. S. Treasury".
Este formulario se enviajunto con el 1-821. Es aconsejable que
adjunte una prueba de su status como beneficiario de la TPS,
tal como una copia de su permiso de trabajo, o copia de la
carta de aprobaci6n de la TPS del afio pasado.
Amigos nicaragilenses y hondurefios, es important que
tengan en cuenta que la extension de 18 meses que les dieron
es solamente para aquellos que ya tenian aprobado el TPS. Si
usted nunca ha solicitado la TPS o dej6 de renovarla en
cualquier oportunidad pasada, no puede aprovechar esta nueva
extension. Si lo hacen van a perder su tiempo y su dinero. Tal
vez no lo sabia, pero si usted tiene el TPS, su esposo(a) o su hijo
menor (menos de 21 afios), no casado, tambi6n puede acogerse
de la TPS, aunque no lo hubiese hecho antes. Pero tienen que
hacerlo yal Antes'del dia 7 de julio.
Todavia no se ha anunciado nada referente al status de de
la TPS de los Salvadorefios. Su TPS expirarA el 6 de septiembre
proximo al igual que su permiso de trabajo. Mientras el
gobierno no se pronuncie al respect no hay nada que hacer,
solamente esperar.
Se esta desarrollando una corriente favorable para los
inmigrantes. El Congresista Luis Guti6rrez (D-Ill) dijo este 19
de junior pasado que los "trabajadores no documentados no
deben de ser castigados por haber violado las leyes estadouni-
denses migratorias en ingresar o quedarse ilegalmente en los
Estados Unidos". El congresista esta proponiendo una nueva
ley: "USA Family Act, H. R. 440" que conferiria la residencia le-
gal a toda persona que leve viviendo aqui ya cinco afios a la
fecha 29 de enero de 2003. Los que no tuvieran los cinco aiios
acumulados en esa fecha, se les daria la residencia condicional.
De igual manera, hace unos dias el portavoz del Presidente
Bush, Ari Fleischer dijo que el Presidente queria darles la
bienvenida a los inmigrantes. El Presidente cree que esto hard
a los Estados Unidos un pais mas rico y fuerte.
Poco a poco las voces se estan levantando a favor de los
inmigrantes a pesar de la gran resistencia por parte de algunos
congresistas y otras personas con poder. Por favor continfien
liamando y escribi6ndonos con sus preguntas. Nuestra direcci6n
es: Catholic Charities/ 1213 16th Street N./ St. Petersburg
FL, 33705. Para mAs informaci6n, llame a Caridades
Cat6licas, en Tampa al (813) 631-4397, pregunte por Carlos

-DREAM--


S B yes0 -- C C


For years Dr. FErdie PachEco
has had vivid dreams of charac-
ters and Events sEt against thE
backdrop of old Ybor City.
Right after these dreams he has
sat down with pEn and paper to
write out thesE stories from his
subconscious.
WE are now publishing these
stories for your enloyment

I was just about finished
serving the lunch crowd, wait-
ing for a few of my regular cus-
tomers who always came in
late, to the Ayer' s Diner, where
I work, when I saw him for the
first time.
"Oh, my God, Elodie, look
what jus' come in," said Odell,
the floor waitress. "I hope he
sits at my table."
He was tall, but slim as
Gary Cooper. He had on a
beautiful white linen suit and
he must have been standing in
that suit since he put it on,
cause it didn't have a danged
wrinkle. Nary a one. And you
know how linen wrinkles when
you seta spell in it. Linen can't
help itself. It just wrinkles. It's
in its nature.
He had on a white Panama
hat with a deep black band.
You know the kind with the
funny shape and a ridge down
the middle? Like Charlie Chan
in the old movies.
He touched the knot on his
nice yellow tie, smoothed down
the white collar on his light
blue shirt. My eyes went right
to his hand cause it had the
nicest pinkie ring with a just-
right diamond, small but taste-
ful, you know? Not big and
pushy like a gangster ring. But
it was quiet, and classy. He
could be any type professional
man. He was good looking
enough to be an actor. Oh, I'm
not talking like Mel Gibson or
Brad Pitt. Those are pretty boy,
baby boy looks. This was more
Spencer Tracy. Solid, you
know, but handsome. He even
had a Clark Gable moustache,
which would have looked
downright foolish on anybody
else in'Tampa at that time, and
people in Ayer's Diner would
snickered and talked behind


their hands and all, but, shoot,
there wasn't a snicker in the
whole place.
His hand touched a tiepin,
which turned out to be another
tastefully small diamond. He
took off his perfect Panama
and hung it on the.hat rack
with a graceful toss. He didn't
even look to see if it landed.
Lawdy, he was jus' so sure of
himself Real cocky.
My heart just about stopped
when he looked the Ayer' s.
Diner over and decided to sit
at the counter. He looked me
straight in the eyes. Oh he did
have lovely dark, black eyes
with dark eyelashes and great
black eyebrows. Why he looked
exactly like Steve...
whatchama call it... you know
played gangsters in the Fifties...
had a brother who played
Dillinger, then disappears for
30 years and when he come
back as Ryan Oneal's father he
wasn't handsome no more,
and his head looked like a
pumpkin and his voice
sounded like a wart-hog. It'll
come to me. He was -in "Res-
ervoir Dogs"?
He had a full head of lus-
cious black hair, altho' they'se
grey all in it, and he looked so
distinguished he could been
a history perfesser or
something' danged smart, like
a notary public.
"Are you waiting on this
stool?" His voice sounded like
the six o'clock news an-
nouncer. I was so stunned I
was speechless, and he saw it,
caught on right off the bat. Oh,
he was so good at reading
people. So good at being kind
and putting' people at ease. He
smiled a big smile and nodded,
as if excusing me for having to
talk, since I was so speechless
and all.
"Well I guess so. I'll just sit
down and you bring me a
menu."
As flustered as I was, I
wasn't so fibberty-gibberty
that I'd forgotten my profes-
sional ways, for, it jus' wasn't
me nor my customers but even
Ruben my boss, says I'm the
greatest counter waitress they


ever seen, going all the way
back to when Kennedy Boule-
vard was called Lafayette
street. So I whipped over a
menu, and had a tall cool glass
of water with ice in it in front
of him.
He sort of shook his head,
kind of cocked it over to the
side with that big smile on his
face, like Cary Grant. I think I
wet my knickers on that one.
The other four waitresses were
huddled on the far end of the
counter, giggling, sighing,
cackling like a bunch of,old
hens. Signifing like a pack of
monkeys.
'My, you have a beautiful
set o'front teeth, Doc. They
yours?'
His head shot back and he
let loose this laugh that
sounded like the bells of Sa-
cred Heart on Sunday. I imme-
diately wanted to die. What
had come over my mouth?
Why would I even mildly sug-
gest he had on store bought
teeth, much less tocall him Doc.
Not that calling him Doc
was inappropriate. He looked
like the men in the South who
were all called Doc. They fit a
type. Nice looking men,
dressed well, rode in to town
on this year's Buick or Mer-
cury. Seemed to always have
cash. Wore pinky rings with
diamonds. They always looked
like they had jus' left a bar-
bershop. They were smooth
shaven, hair combed jus'right,
moustache trimmed, shoes
shined and a fresh manicure
where their nails always had'
clear lacquer. Oh, I jus' love'
that look on a man's finger-
nails. It'sjus' perfect for show-
ing jewels to a customer, or
playing a piano. But I wouldn't
trust a gynecologist with clear
lacquer on his nails. Some
things are jus' plain, flat out
out of place, you know what I
mean, darlin'.
Anyhow, these middle aged
men always seem serenely con-
fident, like they got all the an-
swers to life. And so, whether
they' se carnival barkers,
pharmacist, medicine sales-
men, musicians, poker players


or faro-dealers, all through the
South and most of Texas,
Oklahoma, on up into Las Ve-
gas, they're called 'Doc'.
They don't seem to mind,
neither, cause he just reached
into his coat pocket and pulled
out a fancy card. He held it for
the longest tinie, I guess won-
dering whether I wuz worth
squandering a card on. He con-
tinued to smile.
"These are my natural born
teeth. I don't floss and no den-
tist can catch me long enough
to torture me with tooth clean-
ing. My formula is simple, and
I pass it on to you from four
generations back."
"Ipana for the smile of
beauty..."
Old Bubba Willy, setting at
the end of the counter yelled
out loud.
"Sal Hepatica for the smile
of health."
"You got it brother" Doc
said and shot him with his
thumb and forefinger.
"I'm sorry if I 'offended you
calling you Doc ..." I lowered
my eyes and my voice was
acquivering like I was a 6 year
old about to recite the pre-
amble to the Constitution be-
fore my first.grade class at
Robert E. Lee Elementary
School.


"Gollee, Miss, everybody
calls me Doc. It's very percep-
tive of you to guess that. Actu-
ally, my name is Dr. Donald
Crisp, but you can call me
Doc." Doc never swore all the
year he was in Tampa. The
most he said was "Gee, gollee
and daggum."
I took his card with my hand
shaking and I tried to act like I
could read it without my
glasses, but, hell, I couldn't see
nothing and I excused myself
and flung myself into the
kitchen where the cook, his
two assistants and Rueben,
the boss, snatched the card
and read it out loud:
Dr. Donald Crisp.

The address given was a

private and pricey. What on
earth was a man who lived at

have been elevated and put up
on a pedestal," he said. "I even
saw firefighter action figures in
the store the other day. People


keep saying we are heroes, but
I don't want to be considered
a hero. I'm a public servant
doing the job I love to do."


As a Tampa transplant 27
years ago, Aria Ray Green had
little work experience, no col-
lege degree and was employed
as a janitor at the University
Hospital. But a chance meet-
ing with an injured firefighter
gave his life the
direction and fo-
cus it needed. To-
day, Green is the
new and first
chief of Tampa
Fire Rescue, the 7
first 'African
American to hold i
the post, and has '
earned eight de-
grees with a
Ph.D. in the near i'
future.
"I'm afraid to
think of where my
life would be to- "
day had I not met l
the injured fire- '
fighter," said
Green. "He was re-
covering from a -
back operation on .
the floor I worked ; '
on. It took him a
few weeks to heal
and over that time
we became
close. He told
me about the fire
department and
all the opportuni-
ties that would be "I thin
made available to fire chief
me if I joined. He
made a convinc- unity,
ing argument proves
and shortly af- cess, hai
terwards I began
my training."
Since then, Green has risen
through the ranks of Tampa
Fire Rescue, working as a
fire fighter, engineer, cap-
tain, special operation chief,
District 1 chief, rescue super-
visor, division chief and now
fire chief.
"The biggest thing for me in
being named chief is the op-
portunity to give back to the
department," said Green. "Ev-
eryone who comes up through
the department says if they
were chief they would make
this change and that change,-
but now I have the opportunity
to follow through with it and
I'm going to take full advantage
of the opportunity presented to
me. I want to make this depart-
ment the best in the country."
Green said there are very
few weak areas in the depart-
ment, but nothing will ever be
perfect and everything can al-'
ways be improved upon. The
areas he finds most important
to improve upon are training
and promotional and hiring
policies.
Green said that all great fire
departments begin with the
training. It's what separates
the average departments from
the best. Training has to be a
continuous process that
must be reevaluated allthe
time. As new knowledge
comes about, he said the de-
partment leaders must
change the methods of train-
ing and incorporate the new
knowledge into every facet of
the department. As new
standards develop, depart-
ment leaders have to imple-
ment them into the depart-
ment
"If we want to have the best
department we also need to
have the best people leading
the department, and that all
begins with hiring and promot-
ing the best people. We need a
true career development track
that gets people into the de-
partment, trains them and gets
them on the right path to suc-
cess. We need a program that
that makes them aware of


what needs to be done on their
own for them to reach the next
level of success within the de-
partment."
"I believe all success in life
comes from God, though. God
chose this path for me and has

blessed me with this success.
The path God led me down has
been long and not always easy,
but it has been well worth the
work."
The path that led Green to
Tampa began Massachusetts,
where he was born and raised.
He attended Penn State Uni-
versity, but dropped out and
worked a variety of jobs in the
local area not knowing where
life would lead him.
Laid off from work and
hunkered down during a hor-
rible snow storm, a friend of
Green's who had recently
moved to Tampa called him
and talked about how great
Tampa was when it came to
weather and jobs, which is all
Green needed to hear.
"I was cold and out of work,
and my friend told me in
Florida I'd be warm and em-
ployed," remembered Green.
"It didn't take a genius to fig-
ure out it was time to move."
He immediately found work
at the University Hospital,
where he met the injured fire
fighter. He actually applied to
join the Tampa Police Depart-
ment and Tampa Fire Rescue
at the same time and was ac-
cepted to the TPD first. But,.
when Tampa Fire Rescue ac-.
cepted his application, it was
an easy choice for him to make
the switch.
"I just liked the fire depart-
ment better," said Green. "I
liked the schedule, the sta-
tion life and the time off. It was
just more suited for me. I.
knew this was the perfect
career for me."
Not even a scare during his
first fire changed Green's mind.
"My first call was pretty ex-
citing, but very scary at the
same time," he said.-"A shot-
gun home was on fire and
when we arrived on the scene
we were informed that some-
one was still inside. Another
driver engineer and I en-
tered the home and saw
what we thought was a
child on the floor. We rushed
over, but it turned out to be a


doll and no one else was in-
side. That really shook me
up. Reality hit me in the face
and I realized that this is a
dangerous job and people re-
ally do get hurt, but I stayed
strong and stuck with the de-
partment."
Over the next
25 years, Green
rose steadily
through the
ranks until he
r" -- reached the posi-
tion of fire chief.
"I think being
the first African
American fire
chief is a good
thing for the en-
tire community,
not just the black
community,"
said Green. "It
proves that skin
color doesn't dic-
tate success,
:-'W t:J hard work does."
And his hard
work doesn't end
'";' .-.f,. with Tampa Fire
"' Rescue, in his off
hours, Green
works as a psy-
chiatric nurse
for Memorial
Hospital.
He also re-
turned to school

ire com- riety of degrees

nity. It He currently has
ate sue- AS degrees in fire
science, emer-
gency medical
technology and
nursing; a bachelor degree in
adult education; masters de-
grees in public administration,
management, pastoral counsel-
ing and theology; and is cur-
rently working towards his
Ph.D. in theology.
"When I joined the fire de-
partment, the difficulty of the
training both physically and
mentally gave me the focus I
needed to become successful
in life," said Green. "I've always
enjoyed education, but until I
joined the department, I lacked
the focus I needed to pursue it
properly.
"Naturally, the most impor-
tant aspect to attaining much
education is to have an under-
standing wife because the
schoolwork takes you away
from home so much. My wife,
Wylene, has stood by my side
and helped me to become the
person I am today. I could
never thank her enough."
Together, Green and hiswife
formed the Life of Christ Min-
istry about four years ago.
They did a lot ofworkin the North
Tampa area, working with chil-
dren from low economic areas
and starting a tutoring pro-
gram. Two years ago they had
to put the ministry on hold to
concentrate on other interests,
but they plan on reviving the
ministry in the future.
In the meantime, Green
wants Tampa Fire Rescue to
get more heavily involved in the
Tampa community. He said he
doesn't want the members of
the fire department to go to
work in the morning then close
their doors until they are called
to a fire. He wants all the mem-
bers of Tampa Fire Rescue to
be involved in improving what-
ever community they are work-
ing in by getting involved in
more community and chari-
table events.
But despite all that Green
has done for the community
and all he hopes to do in the
future, he doesn't expect any
special thanks or attention
for it.

Many of us laughed
at the old bumper sticker:
Could the last American leaving Miami,
please bring the flag with him?

Funny thing though,

Those of us who have forgotten what
the flag stands for, would do well to ask
our Hispanic friends and neighbors.

They seem to have better memory, and
will proudly refresh ours.

They also seem to have plenty of flags
to share with those of us who have
forgotten what we did with ours.

I came back, more com-
posed, more human and with
a tad more lipstick on my lips.
He was a studying the menu
like if he was going to memo-
rize it for life, which, it turned
out, he was.
"Is the roast beef good?"
I made a face so Rueben
wouldn't hear me tell him the
Roast Beef had been back
there three whole days, and
not fit for hogs.
"Meat loaf is better. Rueben
just made it himself and the
mashed potatoes are to die for."
I smiled a winning smile, and
I was aware my face was a
twitching from smiling so
much. He closed the menu
with an enthusiastic slam.
"Mashed potato. That sells
it. Make it a double order.
Gravy?"
"How bout good ol' sliced
tomatoes that you can mix up
with the mash potatoes. You
ever have that?"
"Last time I had that was in
Cross City in a diner five years
ago. I love it. No one has ever
suggested that and I plumb
forgot it."
Well, you could knocked
me over with a fly swatter. I
worked in that diner in Cross
City, and it mightjust been me
what suggested it to him.
Course, he'd never have re-
membered me. Five years ago
I was married to Willy Jo Bob
and he had me dressed up like
Dolly Partin with a big ol' wig
and two balloons in my bra. He
claimed it increased my tips
and boy, it did. It raised my
bank balance but lowered my-
self esteem. Boy, boy-howdy,
here was this fine looking Doc
feller sitting in front o' me
again, I reckon.
"You passing through?"
"Nope. I'm here on business.
I stay in one location exactly
one year. One Year of Happi-


ness it says on the card and I
deliver." He patted my hand
and I shook all over.
I staggered into the kitchen.
The whole staff was working on
the order. I took him a nice
fresh green salad.
"Before you bring the food,
may I make a request. Ill be
dining here almost every meal.
I want you to set my place on
a linen napkin. I like to eat on
tablecloths. Also, check with
Reuben, I only want you to wait
on me. Tell me the day you are
off and I won't come in that
day. Is that acceptable?"
"Why, shure, I suppose so.
But why me? You don't even
know my name."
"Yes I do. Its Elo'die
McDuffy, and my source in
Tampa say you are the nicest
and best waitress in the town.
You see, Elodie, I do my re-
search. If I'm going to spend a
year in Tampa I'd like to get
my eating place straight."
I was thunder and struck. I
jus' could not believe my good
luck. I tried to smile some more
but my smile muscles done
give out and I uttered a sound
that sounded like a bark. He
smiled, and spread out the nap-
kin. I brought out the meat loaf.
He rubbed his hands, like
they do in the movies in big
English Castles.
"Salt and pepper?" I ask.
"If the cook is half as good
as his reputation he has sea-
soned this just right and I will
not need additional seasoning."
I can hear them whooping
and hollering in the kitchen.
Its flat embarrassing but he is
too much of a gentleman to
make notice of it.
"An O'Doul's nonalcoholic
beer."
"You don't drink?" I gasp
out. I ain't never met no Doc
in the South that don't drink
like he's got a hollow leg.
"Only on social occasions


when it is called for. Daytime
is for working."
His table manners is to die
for and he even raises his pin-
kie when he drinks his coffee.
He pulls out a leather cigar
case and he pulls out this tril-
lion-dollar cigar and produces
a little itsy bitsy scissor and
cut off the end.
"Mind if I smoke?"
And the whole place goes
"No" even though he is setting
under a big ass NO SMOKiNG
sign. Even Rueben who has
asthma attacks when he
smells cigar smoke comes out
of the kitchen with a stick
match and lights Doc's cigar.
Doc gets up, looks at the
bill, which comes to $6.50, and
leaves the right change. Then
he reaches into his inside coat
pocket and, so help me Elvis,
he pulls out a pad of five dol-
lar bills with the bank wrap-
ping still around them. He
peels off a snapping fresh fiver
and puts it into my hands.
"See you tomorrow Elodie.
Same time. Save my seat and
reserve a dish of whatever you
think is the best of the day."
I'm so stunned I can only
blurt out...
"Steve Cochran."
"What?" Doc looks con-
fused.
"His brother was Lawrence
Tierney, a handsome guy who
played Dillinger that went
away for 30 years and came
back looking like a pumpkin
in Reservoir Dogs..." I realized
I wasn't making any sense and
ran in humiliation into the
kitchen to hide behind the
walk in icebox.'
"Yes, some people say I look
like Steve." Doc said and
walked out of Ayer's Diner into
the hot Tampa sun.
(Continued next week)


There at the end of the table
sat Mister Henry, one arm
holding his Roll-Tide toy, and
the other holding his spoon.
His derby was placed firmly
over his head, his huge mon-
key ears tucked under the
brim. Mister Henry's sightless
eyes stared straight ahead,
fixed on the Widder Brown.
"I been telling Mister
Pettingill about 01' Dooley and
the Emperor Jones," said
Pickett patting the Widder
Brown's hand.
"Oh my," fluttered the
Widder Brown, "that seems so
long ago."
"What I didn't get to, my
dear, was the fact that a while
back someone came here while
we was gone for a month..."
"That was when we took
Mister Henry to Baton Rouge
for lung cancer, which I be-
lieved was caused by smoking
Angus' cigars. Mister Henry
loved his cigars." The Widder
Brown played with her silver,
overtaken for a moment by
memories of the sad event. She
took a liberal gulp of some
Lydia Pinkham's.
"When we got back, Mister
Pettingill, the little 1931 red
Roadster six wheeler Model A
Ford roadster was gone. From
the look of it they brung a new
battery, and some gas, and
just cranked her up and
backed her up the ramp they
dug and just drove her off. All
they left was the heavy plastic
we had covered her with, and
her tire tracks."
"My God," said Pettingill,
who had not uttered a word in
hours, "and 01' Dooley, what

Gonzmart Golf Tournament

Raises $55,000 for Charity
The Cesar Gonzmart Eighth Annual Memorial Golf Tour-

ship, part of the USF Latino Scholarship Program. The tour-
nament was held on Friday, May 2, at Pebble Creek Golf and

of him?"
"Nary," said the Widder
Brown, her eyes brimming
with tears.
"How awful," said Mister
Pettingill, fighting a terrible in-
ternal battle. Within him raged
an unresolved intestinal con-
flict. Part of him desperately
wanted to partake of the won-
derful feast the Widder Brown
had prepared, while the other
half was put off his food by the
sight of Mister Henry, spoon in
hand, sightlessly supervising
the meal. A stuffed monkey,
particularly one he felt he had
become acquainted with, was
more than anyone could expect
him to cope with. The Widder
Brown brought in a tureen of
Kadota figs, with cream cheese
on the side. Mister Pettingill
felt obliged to decline, feeling
somehow that this would, in
someway, be an imposition on
their love life.
Mister Pettingill had barely
tasted a superb expresso when
the Widder Brown began to
speak in a calm well modu-
lated tone. She spoke like a
lawyer making a summation
before a jury.
"So you see, Mister
Pettingill, Pickett and I hardly
know how to thank you for re-
turning our beautiful 1931 red
Ford Model A six wheeler road-
ster, much less to overly thank
you for fixing the fender and
replacing the headlights. And,
while it may seem out of place
to ask, and I hasten to add you
don't have to say if you don't
want to, but as a matter of
curiosity, whatever did you do
with 01' Dooley?"

Outdoor Sportsman's

Report

By Richard Muga


The Outdoor Sportsman of the Week


Sometimes children point
the way adults should follow.
Many grownups believe, al-
though perhaps not by con-
scious effort, that children, be-
cause they are smaller or
younger, do not have the capac-
ity to be as responsive, intelli-
gent or devoted to principles as
adults. Into the picture comes
12-year-old Kyle Pruner.
Each summer, Kyle and
other Nativity students attend
Mary Help of Christians Sum-
mer Camp. There, the very ath-
letic Pruner enjoys the guidance
of that fine Catholic facility as
well as the many outdoor
sports he so loves. Water ski-
ing, basketball, baseball and
swimming are all part of the
day for Kyle while at Mary Help.
Two weeks ago, Kyle, a re-
cently ascended sixth to sev-
enth grader at Nativity Catho-
lic School in Brandon, showed
the quality of his upbringing
and of his own character. While
at Mary Help, Kyle observed a
man in a wheel chair attempt-
ing to negotiate the road on a
nearby hill. The unfortunate
man, apparently on his way to
Mass in the facility's chapel,
could not make it up the hill
and his wheelchair fell over.
Without hesitation, 12-year old
Pruner ran over to the man,
brought the chair upright and
helped the man onto it. He
then further assisted the man
by pushing the chair uphill
until the man reached his des-
tination. The thankful man
told Kyle. how much he appre-
ciated his efforts and gave Kyle
a token of his gratitude. The
given token, for the protection
and help of Kyle, was an im-
age of the Saint Domenic
Savio. Impressed bythe gift,
the very devout Catholic
Pruner kept the religious fig-
ure with him thereafter.
Kyle had been a member of
a Brandon Little League team
for some time. While he ex-
celled as a player, he wanted
to do more for his team during
the upcoming championship
game. With Saint Savio's im-
age in hand, he prayed for as-
sistance before his next game.
If he couldionly get a homerun
for his team, perhaps they
could win the championship
he implored.

Kyle Pruner connects for a big home run in the
Brandon Little League championship game.


Kyle Pruner, 12-years-old, a
great young athlete, a devout
Catholic, a good son, brother
and friend, stepped up to the
plate. When the pitch came he
swung his bat and the ball
sailed out of the park, into the
trees and into the forever
memory and devoted faith of
the young man. Kyle also hit a
double and a single during the
game.
How many times during the
rush of our lives do we fail to
stop and help those in our
path in need? How many
times are the extended
hands and the hungry looks
ignored because we choose
not to become involved? Is
the innocent kindness and
leadership of Kyle Pruner an
example to be followed? Only
you can answer that.

Long ago, one of my favor-
ite characters said something
very appropriate to this story:
"Far better it is to dare
mighty things, to win glorious
triumphs, even though check-
ered by failure, than to take
rank with the poor spirits who
neither enjoy much nor suffer
much, because they live in the
gray twilight that knows not
victory nor defeat."
Theodore Roosevelt.
There is great reward in the
investment of time and effort
that parents make in their
children's up bringing. I am
sure that Jay and Joan Pruner
are beginning to receive their
reward with Kyle's behavior.
Kyle Pruner is our Outdoors
Person of the Week. Congratu-
lations on your blessing.

HUDDLE
BY LEE RUIZ

Too Young for Glory?


Lee Ruiz is filling infor Nick
Ruiz this week.
Everywhere you go you can
hear people talking about bas-
ketball star LeBron James.
Standing tall at 6'8" and 240
pounds, this man was the first
round pick in the NBA draft by
his home team the Cleveland
Cavaliers. Lucky for the Cavs,
because all NBA fans know
they haven't exactly burned up
'the league in recent years.
It's funny that LeBron wears
the.jersey number 23 because
that's the same number that
NBA great Michael Jordan
wore. It is speculated that
LeBron will be the next MJ, if
not better. Sure this guy is
good and will probably get bet-
ter with experience, but how
well will he play being just


fresh out of high school?
A lot of skill that players
develop comes from playing
college ball and seeing he
missed out on that competi-
tion, LeBron is making a big
jump straight into the pros. In
the NBA James will be going
up against Allen Iverson, Tracy
McGrady, and Kobe Bryant.
Will LeBron be the next MJ
or just another one of those
over estimated flops? Remem-
ber, Darryl Dawkins went
straight to the NBA out of high
school in Orlando. "Chocolate
Thunder' struggled at first, but
eventually became a force.
Will too much money too
soon be LeBron's Waterloo?
Some say too much too soon
of anything is the downfall of
many young jocks.

Friend of a Friend Fighting

for a Cure for ALS Disease


On the Other Hand

The Course of Human Events in the Park

Golfers gather each year for an exciting tourna-
ment and to help battle ALS Lou Gehrig's disease.
What began as a simple game of golf between friends has
turned into a major golf tournament centered around raising
money to benefit the research of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclero-
sis (ALS), otherwise known as Lou Gehrig's disease, a debili-
tating and often deadly muscular disorder.
Since 2002, Friend of a Friend ALS Foundation has raised
over $25,000 for the research of ALS through their golf tour-
naments. The foundation has also donated money to St.
Joseph's Children's Hospital and St. Joseph's Cancer Cen-
ter. Their next tournament will be held in November and
the foundation projects they will raise another $20,000
for ALS research.
The golf tournament originally began in 1990 when Vincent
Scanio IV and a small group of friends decided to get to-
gether once a year for a competitive game of golf. As the years
went on, more and more friends joined the game and they
soon had a large tournament to organize.
When Scanio's mother-in-law succumbed to cancer, he
felt that he needed to do something to thank St. Joseph's
Cancer Center for taking such good care of his mother-in-
law. In 1998, he organized an effort to have all the golf-
ers in the yearly golf tournament donate money to the
cancer center. For the next few years, they continued to
donate funds to the cancer center, as well as to the St.
Joseph's Children's Hospital.
After participating in the Doral Tournament, which raises
money for the University of Miami ALS Center, Scanio had a
"moving experience" when he saw a video of Jose Perez, who
was in the end stages of ALS and has since' passed away.
Scanio decided to form a foundation to help battle ALS and
use his golf tournament as the major fundraiser. A friend
introduced Scanio to Perez, thus the new foundation was
named Friend of a Friend ALS Foundation.
The foundation's first golf tournament in February 2002
had 140 golfers and raised $10,000 through golf fees and a
raffle. The second tournament grew even larger, totaling 200
golfers, and raised $15,000. The upcoming tournament is
expected to have 216 golfers. All money raised is donated to
University of Miami ALS Center.
There are no spaces left for golfers in the upcoming tour-
nament, but Dino Scanio, Vincent's brother and current presi-
dent of the FOF, said they still need items for the raffle and
donations are always welcome. For more information, call
Dino Scanio at 477-1219.
""We'rejust a small group of individuals with a lot of care,"
said Dino Scanio. 'We just want to make a difference where
we can."
ALS is a progressive wasting away of certain nerve cells of
the brain and spinal column called motor neurons, which con-
trol the voluntary muscles that allow movement. Over a period
of months or years, ALS causes increasing muscle weakness,
inability to control movement, and problems with speaking,
swallowing and breathing. In the United States, one to two
people per 10,000 develop ALS each year. Most people diag-
nosed with ATS die within three to five years after the symp-
toms begin.

On July 4th, I walked my
usual hour in the Veterans'
Park adjacent the splendid
hospital Sam Gibbons se-
cured. The voters should have
made Gibbons stay in Wash-
ington-on life support if nec-
essary. His seniority assured
such bounty.
I walk in the park though I
Live on the gulf. I am afraid of
stepping on beach stingrays.
I There is also the naked-Ger-
man problem. The Germans
think beach nudity is ok.
A woman down the beach
stubbornly refuses to sell to
developers. Her modest cottage
huddles between two multi-
story condominiums. Besides
thwarting developers, her mis-
sion is protecting foreign nude
innocents from arrest.
Given a choice between ar-
resting Osama, Saddam, or
Jack the Ripper and arresting
naked tourists, our beach gen-
darmes go for naked tourists
every time. A few years ago
they bagged one frolicking
nude in the gulfat 3 a.m. Such
vigilance quells the sinister
menace of public nudity's
threatening to overwhelm
beach civilization.
The rescue lady and I fell
into an ad hoc routine. She
would run out from her cot-
tage, waving a towel at me
and urging, "Hurry, dearl You
are more agile than I. There's
a young man with no bath-
ing suit about a hundred
yards ahead"
I had to step lively to catch
up with the naked guy, never
hard to spot: he was the
fatback-white critter with ala-
baster buttocks never touched
by a ray of sun ambling along
in complacent conviction that
the stares he got testified to his
splendid anatomy.
I don't speak German, so if
Mr. Nudie didn't understand
English or French, I had a
tough time convincing him to
swathe himself in the towel I
brandished. I tired of this duty.
To escape stingrays and naked
Germans, I retreated to the park.
The park has greenery that
a beach dweller craves as con-
trast to lapping surf and
stretches of white sand. An-
other allure is animals: rab-
bits, squirrels, raccoons, ar-
madillos, and the occasional
turtle, trudging along in pon-
derous splendor.
The park is a quiet place.

But it is also a cauldron of
sociology.
Take the dog walkers--
mostly elderly women walking
elderly dogs. Dogs and owners
look alike. This fact makes me
grateful that our old bulldog,
Obie, died before park-walking
time arrived.. A plastic surgeon
with a backhoe couldn't have
excavated the companion
bulldog wrinkles that IL
would have developed to
match Obie's.
When I pause to talk with
one of the dog walkers, I learn
how long she was married and
the circumstances of her
spouse's death. Women have a
habit of outliving men. And
they get a dog when their hus-
bands die if they don't have
one already. I am not suggest-
ing a metaphor, merely report-
ing a fact.
Dog walkers are amblers. I
seldom see other serious walk-
ers. What I see is SUV's
cruising the park and stop-
ping at various vistas. The
occupants sit in their SUV's
with motors running, win-
dows up, and AC on. Often
the stereo blares. They seldom
step outside the van. July 4th
was an exception. The van;
hordes emerged to sit at.
picnic tables throughout the
park and consume choles-
terol cuisine at the top of the
food pyramid. No wonder
an SUV nation suffers epi-
demic obesity.
Then there are gays and'
trysters. Gays cruise and park.
They hunker down in guilty
crouches waiting for a pick-up.
One day I will rip open a
cruiser's door and yell, "Oh,
come on and show some guts.
Get out, parade around, as-
sume seductive poses.
Straights do. Gays will never
gain acceptance until they stop
cooperating with bigots."
Most trysters are old guys
with women half their age.
These upstanding citizens ren-
dezvous in late-model luxury
hearses. They all doubtless
support family values. This
hypocrisy shocks the rabbits,
dismays the raccoons, appalls
the squirrels, repels the arma-
dillos, and nauseates the
turtles. Even the snakes hiss.
One day I will open the door
of one of these love boats and
say, "C'mon, pops. The injec-
tions with monkey testoster-
one didn't turn back mortal-

The playground has poi-
gnant vignettes of divorced fa-
thers bringing children on visi-
tation day. I would like to box
these guys' ears and demand,
"Why didn't you just hunker
down and tough it out? You
injured your children when
you gave up."
Near the end of my walk, a
motorcycle roars by. On it sits
a guy with a middle aged face
but juvenile-hued hair. He
wears a Wild One leather
jacket in July humidity.
"What do you make of that,
Ms. Armadillo?' I ask of one
emerging from the pine trees.
"It's one of those midlife cri-
sis guys. He's dyed his hair
Frankenstein black, a sure
sign he's gone loco," she opines.
"Speaking of loco," I say as
she swats her one extremely
homely offspring, "what was
your reaction to President
Bush's taunting the snipers of
Iraq to 'Bring 'em on!"?
.He would say that hiding
out in the Oval Office," she
sniffs. "You notice he didn't
say 'Bring 'em on' when he
should have been in Viet Nam
instead of goofing off in the
National Guard."
"Well said," quoth I, "and so
long, Ms. A. See you soon."
"No, dear, you won't. You
humans have encroached on
our habitat. We're moving to a
posh stand of palmettos west
of Palm Beach."
"How will you travel?' I ask.
"On a watermelon truck, of
course," says Ms. Armadillo.
"Don't tell me that you will
fall off the watermelon truck
when you get there," I say.
"There is no other way to
depart a watermelon truck,"
says Ms. A. "Etched in stone
in the cosmic scheme of
things is the eternal categori-
cal imperative that dictates
the mode of watermelon-
truck exits."
"I see you armadillos have
your watermelon-truck meta-
physics down cold," I say as
she swivels to leave. "Happy
July 4th," I call after her de-
parting carapace.
"Happy Bastille Day, dear,
with liberty and justice for all,"
she yodels and disappears into
the brush as the Veterans'
Hospital Bell Tower carillons
"God Bless America."

MY VIEWPOINT
By John T. Spera


A Slowly Dying Era

"Footprints on the sands of time." Longfellow


Most of us laughed, espe-
cially his contemporaries, at
the antics of Sir Spencer
Chaplin (Charlie Chaplin).
When Sir Charles Spencer
Chaplin passed to the great
beyond he was deemed as one
of the greatest comedians, and
outstanding personalities of
the motion picture industry.
Young readers are blessed by
the fact that most of his fatu-
ous antics are preserved for-
ever in DVDs and VHFs. This
British great adorned the si-
lent film area and much was
left to the viewers' imagina-
tions, as it should be.
Last week, the demise of
Katherine Hepburn brought
down an era of great Hollywood
divas. Hepburn, like Chaplin,
was a perfectionist and, as
such, gave the directors and
stage hands headaches in re-
gards to the placing of sets,
lighting and, most of all, how
to play a part. She took a pow-
erful interest in every phase of
the production of her films.
Even the movie making moguls
conceded that she was right in
every aspect of the creation. In
one of her theatre productions,
she sang the title song in Coco,
a musical show in New York.
The same week, noted
newscaster David Brinkley
died and another great movie
leading man, Eldred Gregory
Peck, also passed away. Mr.
Peck was not only a great ac-
tor, but was motivated by a
pursuit for justice and de-
cency. He won an Academy
Award for his portrayal of a
compassionate Alabama law-
yer for an extremely controver-
sial and ethical defense of a
black man accused of rape in
the film To Kill a Mockingbird.
Aside from his movie work, he
was vigorously involved in
charitable causes and served
as chairman of the American
Cancer Society. Like a true phi-
lanthropist, he shunned pub-
licity and was the least egotis-
tical of movie stars.
Along with Betty Davis,
Ingrid Berman and even the
sultry husky voice of the tu-
multuous Tullalah Bankhead,
they were distinctive person-
alities in the era of movie mak-
ing gone by.
During the past week, an-
other unique personality went
the way of all flesh comedian
Buddy Hackett. Mr. Hackett
was a pudgy, roly-poly figure
with a warped mouth and a
Brooklynese accent. In his
early years (high school), he
was ridiculed for his face and
body, much to his chagrin, so
he told jokes to offset his "de-
formities." Thus he parlayed
his deformities to become a
star comedian, just as Jimmy
Durante (Shnozzola) had to do.
Jimmy Durante had an en-
larged proboscis and a croaky
voice. As a child, Jimmy would
suffer the "slings" and "arrows"
of his physical condition by his
schoolmates. But, he parlayed
his abnormalities to become a
star in radio, television and
talk shows When he was in
Philadelphia playing in a
nightclub there, my brother
Tommy, who sang in a show,
talked to Jimmy. Jimmy told
my brother in his Sicilian dia-
lect, "Io sono imbarazzato de
questo naso trappo grande." (I
am embarrassed with this big
nose." In spite of all the money
he made in show business, he
was ashamed of his chnozollal
In the very early days of tele-
vision, it was Milton Berle who
enamored himself to the tele-
vision audience by being live

taping in those days. Henny
Youngman, another comedian,
had a face that was the
epitome of a comedian He had
a prop violin, which he played
excruciatingly after each joke.
I had the privilege of seeing this
one-liner expert at the Earle
Theatre in Philadelphia and
his very countenance provoked
a laugh.
Maurice Zolotow once told
a great story concerning Walter
Matthau on a Universal Stu-
dios tour bus. As the bus was
slowly winding past the star's
bungalows, the guide pointed
to Walter Matthau's home and
uttered, "Why, there-he is
now." As a tall man in a beau-
tifully tailored silk suit
shambled out the door to-
ward a Mercedes sedan, she
shouted, "Look folks! Walter

Matthau in personal" Matthau
look at them, shaking his head
sadly. Suddenly, he raised his
arm and shouted in his dis-
tinctive pronounced nasal
voice, "I am not Walter
Matthau. This whole thing's a
fake. Get your money back"
Matthau has a distinctive low
stoop and a "comedian's" face!
Flip Wilson, who joined all


the previous comedians in the
big show in the sky, has facial
expressions to go along with
his comedy. When he imper-
sonated "Geraldine," he was
uproarious! He had the voice
to go along with Geraldine.
My other brother Frank was
in a photographic unit in the
military and met comedian
Jack Benny, the master of
"timing." His look of frustration
showed on his face when he
delivered the punch line! He
readily allowed my brother to
take a picture together during
WWII when Benny was enter-
taining the troopsin Europe.
These are some of the show
people that cannot be dupli-
cated and I could go on and
on with performers who have
left us, but space does not per-
mit. But, opportunely, we now
have tapes, VCRs or DVDs so
that the young people or even
the baby boomers can view
them and get a lifetime of great
entertainers of the past.
All these comedians had fa-
cial and physical "qualities"
today's comedians don't
have they all looked like co-
medians!

gThoughts of the Week
By: Fortune Bosco


The Tampa Tribune has
published editorials with regu-
larity with the sole purpose
being to undermine local po-
litical institutions while pro-
moting people they favor. It is
the duty of a newspaper to in-
form and not dictate.
In an editorial published on
June 22, the Tribune attacked
County Administrator Dan
Kleman. The editors engaged in
some misinformation when
they stated that Hunziker might
be leaving the county because
of a disagreement with Kleman.
This innuendo was rebutted with
a letter to the editor reaffirm-
ing his loyalty to Kleman. Dan
Kleman has been county ad-
ministrator for nine years,
earning the support of the
Tribune for most of his tenure.
He was labeled' "savvy" by the
paper and suddenly he is no
longer smart and efficient.
He has come under fire for
not acting in the Emmy Acton
saga. Ms. Acton is a "prima
inter pares" and the end of her
employment should be deter-
mined by the County Commis-
sion, among whom she has
strong friends and supporters.
Kleman does not want to an-
tagonize the County Commis-
sion and waits for their action.
Furthermore, Dan Kleman
was criticized for not interfer-
ing in the racial disputes ex-
isting in the county. In reality,
the county attorney resolved


the matter with the county
commissioners' approval.
The Tribune editorial recog-
nizes some of the good quali-
ties of Mr. Kleman, emphasiz-
ing his good performance for
the past nine years. It takes at
least four years to train a new
administrator. He has been criti-
cizedfor offeringpay raises. Well,
that is one of his duties, to pro-
vide for economic issues affect-
ing the employees. He cannot
be faulted for doing something
for which he is responsible.
Dan Kleman is admired and
respected by all employees. He
can be blamed for not being a
hatchet man, but his respect
for the preservation of em-
ployment prevents his stern
actions.
Dan Kleman is a dedicated
and hardworking administra-
tor. He never ran for a popu-
larity contest, but he has
shown his respect and consid-
eration for all the commis-
sioners. He cannot be blamed
for not being omnipresent
and omniscient.
There have been lack of pro-
cedures for which he has been
blamed, however, many of
those issues can be resolved.
It will take a long time for
Mr. Kleman to rectify those de-
ficiencies. He will continue
to be a well respected and liked
administrator. It will be no good
to sacrifice a man on the altar
of hypocrisy. Hoc est in votis.

AAt the A4covies with Jason Alessi


Movie: Terminator 3: Rise
of the Machines
Director: Jonathon Mostow
Cast: Arnold Schwarz-
enegger, Kristanna Loken, Nick
Stahl, Claire Danes
Rated: R (violence, profan-
ity, brief nudity))
Running time: 108 min.
The major question is now
how good or bad Terminator 3
is, but why it was made. The
storyline for the Terminator
movies came to an end with
Terminator 2: Judgment Day in
1991. Arnold Schwarzenegger
(the last terminator) destroyed
himself, thus erasing all tech-
nological evidence necessary
for building any more killing
machines and therefore pre-
venting a future war.
So we thought...
As it turns out, Terminator
2 only delayed the start of the
war between humans and ma-
chines (the day the war begins
is known as Judgment Day).
The reason for this delay is
simple: the ability to keep the
Terminator series rolling after
T2 made a killing, at the box
office. James Cameron, the
Oscar-wining director who was
the main force behind the first


two Terminator films, wanted
no part of another movie. For
Cameron, the story was fin-
ished; everything that needed
to be told in the series was told.
Schwarzeneggerinitially said
he wouldn't do another Termi-
nator.movie unless Cameron
was at the helm; money can
make people change their
minds very quickly.
It's about 10 years after
Terminator 2. John Connor
(played by Nick Stahl, who re-
placed Edward Furlong), the
future savior of the human race,
has been livingas a loner, drift-
ing from spotto spot, doingdrugs
every now and then. Connor
doesn't feel safe; he believes
that his life as well as the whole
human race could still be in
danger. His fears are justified.
T-X (Kristanna Loken), a
brand new state-of-the-art
Terminatrix, is sent back
through time to kill Connor, as
well as those who will fight
under his command in the fu-
ture war. One of Connor's side-
kicks is Kate Brewster (Claire
Danes), whose father is head
of one of the divisions of
Skynet, a corporation that is
building the machines.


- Again?
Sent back in time to protect
Connor again is the Termi-
nator (Schwarzenegger). I
found it rather amusing that
the Terminator ends up wear-
ing the same type of clothes he
wore in the last film, right
down to the sunglasses;
couldn't they come up with a
new outfit this time around?
What ensues are some ex-
plosive chase sequences in-
volving heavy gunfire. Connor,
Brewster and the Terminator
race against time to reach
Brewster's father at Skynet
and stop the warfrom beginning.
The T-X is pretty cool and
pretty hot to look at, but she
isn't nearly as menacing and
as powerful as the liquid metal
T-1000 (played by Robert
Patrick) in T2. Rise of the Ma-
chines is fun to watch, but it
is still a rehash of things that
took place in the first two mov-
ies and therefore does not sat-
isfy. Lack of originality often
means lack of quality. Termi-
nator 3 is an unnecessary se-
quel made for more big bucks.
Let's hope Arnold can say, "I
won't be back," for a change.
