Angels must have been watch-
ing over Joe Capitano, Jr.
During the weekend, a friend
found Joe Capitano, Jr. uncon-
scious on the bottom of Harbour
Island Athletic Club's pool. A
nurse happened to be at the
scene and immediately per-


formed life saving treatment and
she had the benefit of having oxy-
gen to administer that was pur-
chased just that week by the club.
Capitano was rushed to the
hospital, where he was placed on
a ventilator. His condition was
poor and the prognosis was dim


since no one knew how long he
was without air. A couple of days
later he was conscious and
breathing on his own. He suf-
fered no brain damage and will
soon be released from the hospi-
tal. He is expected to make a full
recovery.

Under the leadership of
George and Illeana Diaz, the
Cuban Club has had its best year
in regards to income from rent-
als of the building and for cost
reduction, but the $1 million
mortgage on the historic build-
ing is a huge burden on the Cu-
ban Club Foundation that owns
it. In order to reduce the mort-
gage, the foundation has voted to


sell the patio area. The patio is
19,000 square feet. We hear the
asking price is $800,000.

El Nuevo Dia, Puerto Rico's
largest dialy newspaper, will
launch a Spanish daily newspa-
per with the same name in Or-
lando. This newspaper will be
published Monday through Fri-
day starting the end of August.
It will feature local news,
sports and news from Puerto
Rico. The newspaper wants to
start with 500 retail distribution
sites and will have a staff of 60.

Aziicar! Falleci6 la Reina de la Salsa, Celia Cruz
La cantante cubana Celia
Cruz, gran figure de la
miisica latinoamericana e
y simbolo de sus compa-
triotas exiliados, falleci6 "
ayer, a las 4:55 p.m., en
su domicilio de Nueva
Jersey, a consecuencia
de un cancer cerebral.
Tenia 77 afios. "Es una
inmensa tristeza confir-
marle a todos sobre la
perdida de Celia, nues-
tra reina, la Guarachera
del mundo", rezaba un
emotivo, comunicado
enviado por la vocera de
la artist, Blanca Lasalle.
En el mismo se detallaba
que la int6rprete muri6
"luego de una intense
lucha con un tumor cerebral", por el que -agrega el escrito- se la habia "in-
tervenido quiruirgicamente dos veces" en el 2002. Naci6 el 21 de octubre de
1925 en el barrio habanero de Santos Suarez, en el seno de un modesto hogar,
en el que vivian sus padres (Catalina Alfonso y Sim6n Cruz) y sus tres
hermanos, entire los que estaba Gladys, que la acompafi6 en los dramiticos
meses finales de su vida.Durante buena parte de la d6cada de los 4o fue
forjandose frente a los micr6fonos. Queria cantar muisica romintica, pero
la compositora Isolina Carrillo, de raza negra como ella, le sugiri6 que para
los int6rpretes de color era mejor dedicarse a la mfisica tropical, bailable.
Asi comenz6 todo. Luego vino la parte mils conocida de aquella etapa, que
en estos dias se ve tan remote, en la que la Guarachera, el calificativo que
m~isle gustaba, y el inicio de su leyenda, que seguramente nunca terminarAi,
pues el legado de Celia, "La Reina de la Salsa", la duefia "idel Azdcar!, y la
creadora de "la vida es un Carnaval en el que no hay que llorar" se han
quedado pegado en la memorial impert6rrita de un mundo que hoy la
extrafia. Adi6s Celia, y gracias por tu mfisica.

Pero queda claro que estas
barreras geograficas, nacio-
nales y/o geopoliticas respon-
den a coyunturas hist6ricas,
que aunque duras, muchas
veces son necesarias e irrever-
sibles.
Sin embargo, el caso de los,
inmigrantes en los Estados
Unidos es particularmente
positive para todos. Ellos son
(Isomos!) el motor de esta
naci6n.
H Hoy por hoy, solamente la
comunidad hispana repre-
senta casi 650 billones de
d61ares en poder de compra
anualmente, Califonia que es

vive de la mano de obra barata
del inmigrante mexicano. Es-
tados como Arizona, Nueva
York, Florida y ahora las Caro-

La influencia del inmigrante
hispano se siente hasta en sus
paises de origen a donde legan
remesas de casi 80 billones
anuales, ayudando a a man-
terier algunas de las d6biles
economics latinoamericanas.
El inmigrante legal o legal
casi siempre estA marginado de
los beneficios del seguro social
y por el contrario es fruto de
abusos y discriminaciones
laborales, en servicios de
salud, y educaci6n.
La mayoria de empleadores
de inmigrantes ilgales des-
cuentan de sus salaries los im-
puestos federales y beneficios
del seguro social, pero fallen en
reportarlos al gobierno.
Estos americanos sori los
que abiertamente traicionan al


gobierno, a sus conciudada-
nos, y estimulan el trafico de
ilegales (despuds de odiseas
inverosimiles) que vienen a
cumplir con oficios que su
contraparte norteamericana ha
descartado.
En hora buena el Tribunal
Superior de los Angeles ha
decidido tomar el caso de los
deportados mexicanos de la
ddcada de 1930. En aquel en-
tonces cerca de 400 mil mexi-
coamericanos, ciudadanos
estadounidenses la mayoria,
fueron deportados masiva-
mente s6lo de California, sin
audiencias, pasando por alto
todos sus derechos.

Ante la falta de instru-

de Perd, un medico utilize un
taladro y un alicate para abrir
el craneo de un paciente y
extraer unos 150 gramos de
coagulos que ponian en peligro
su vida en la zona mas pobre
del pais.
"No tenemos instrumental
(neuroquirfirgico) en el hospi-
tal y el paciente lleg6 grave y
se nos iba, asi que no me
qued6 mas remedio que correr
a una ferreteria a comprar el
taladro y usar el alicate con el

jueves el m6dico Cesar Venero,
en comunicaci6n telef6nica.
"Lo anestesi6, cort& el cuero

realidad colombiana donde las

Sle sirven para establecer
S "inesperadas relaciones entire el
Smundo social y politico y los

autores con contribuciones
destacables en diferentes

Gabriel Garcia Mdrquez,
laureado escritor colombiano e
nuestro motive de redacci6n
esta semana.
Retirado recientemente de la
vida pflblica por razones de
salud, segain informa la prensa
autorizada. El no nos dice has-
ta luego por un pre o pos
operatorio.
Es un adios defmitivo, un
ultimatum a los esfuerzos por
subsistir, por vivir mas... en
pleno apogeo de madurez,
productive, donde un nombre,
un apellido en el mundo in-.
menso de la cultural, ha recorri-
do, ha impactado y seguirA, con
su huella imperecedera, enar-
deciendo, un algo mis que un
punto en el mapamundi que
sefiala donde est& Colombia.
Ya bien haya sido su pluma,
su verbo elocuente hecho prosa
vibrant. lo cierto es que cons-
itituye un simbolo hist6rico
socio-cultural que perdurara y
que a su vez, generaciones
futuras inmediatas y/o a largo
alcance se constituiran en
verdaderas sucesoras de su
contribuci6n digna, sentida y
brillante.'


Esta gloria literaria sent
raices en un milenio que acaba
de terminar XX, con amplias y
profundas ramificaciones en el
ya, reci6n comenzando el siglo
XXI con hondas y profundas
cicatrices a nivel mundial.
Leamos su sentir:
"Si por un instant Dios se
olvidara que soy una marioneta
de trapo y me regalara un trozo
de vida, aprovecharia ese
tiempo lo mAs que pudiera.
Possible no diria todo lo que
pienso, pero en definitive
pensaria todo lo que digo.
Son tantas las cosas que he
podido aprender de ustedes, los
hombres... pero realmente de
much no habrin de servir por-
que cuando me garden dentro
Sde esa maleta infelizmente me
estar6 muriendo.
Manten a los que amas cerca
de ti, diles al oido lo much que
los necesitas, quierelos y tra-
talos bien toma tiempo para
decirles "lo siento", "perd6na-
me", "por favor', "gracias" y to-
das las palabras de amor que
conoces.
Nadie te recordard por tus

hermanos y hennanas menore habilidades bilingfies en prueba.
Las experiencias te enseilario "A veces tengo dificultad en

transformarse en una gerer entender las necesidades de otras
asociada capaz de Cracker Band personas," dijo Martine. "A

Martinez ha trabajado en I,
unidad de Cracker Barrel en S. in
Antonio, Texas por los (ltimo:
ocho ailos. Durante su tiemt o
como mesera, ella descubri6 su
suefio de trabajar como gerente. Ella
sabia que habia bastante que
aprender para el trabajo, pero sigui6
adelante porque ella sabia que
Cracker Barrel le daria una
oportunidad.
"Recuerdo vivir en viviendas
pdblicas y pensar quiero mts de la
vida," dijo Martinez. "Cuando.
reci6n llegu6 a Cracker Barrel,
escuch6 repetidas veces lo que la
compafila tenia para ofrecer a las
personas quienes trabajan duro.
Recuerdo que yo pens6 quiero un
pedazo de eso. Sencillamente he
aplicado la misma actitud que he
usado a traves de mi vida. "
"Todos tenian la misma
oporttnidad, y yo estaba
determinada a hacker lo mejor
possible con ella," dijo Martinez. "Yo
sabia que estaba list para el
desafio. y aprecie como Cracker
Barrel me dio el tiempo y el cinimo
para aprender el trabajo."


Despu6s de haberse recibido del
program de entrenamiento para
gerentes de la compailia hace tres
afios, Martinez ha continuado
impresionando a sus compafieros.
"Jo Anne toma orgullo en todo su
trabajo," dijo Jesse Mermeia,
gerente general de la unidad de
Cracker Barrel en San Antonio.
-"Ella lleg6 a ser gerente trabajando a
trav6s del program de interns. Su
etica hacia su trabajo es muy
impresionante y es ficil ver por qu6
es que nuestros huespedes dicen que
es un placer tenerla alrededor."
Martinez tambi6n acredita a sus
tres hijos por apoyarla en sus
esfuerzos para trabajar como
gerente. "Tengo a mi familiar en la
casa, y tengo una familiar aqui," dijo
ella. "Debido a mis hijos. yo fui
capaz de adquirir lo que me propose
realizar. Mis hijos y Cracker Barrel
me han dado.un apoyo tremendo."
Martinez tambi6n aprecia como la
compafia trata de alcanzar a las


que mi espaiol es totalmente
diferente del espafiol que hablan
algunos de nuestros hu6spedes y
algunos de mis compafieros de
trabajo. Esto present una gran
oportunidad para aprender que yo
disfruto."
Martinez tambien respeta la
determinaci6n de sus compafieros.
"Muchos de nuestros empleados
hispanos han tornado cursos de
ingl6s en la universidad local de la
comunidad." dijo ella. "Tenemos un
cocinero de parrilla quien no
hablaba ingl6s, pero ahora puede
mantoner una conversaci6n en
ingles. Yo respeto a las personas
quienes trabajan para lograr sus
metas."
Martinez tiene planes de continuar
su carrera con Cracker Barrel. Su
pr6xima meta es de llegar a ser
gerente general de su propio
restaurant. "Me encanta mi
trabajo, y llego una hora antes
simplemente para star preparada,"
Martinez dijo. "Yo s6 que un dia
podre ser un gerente general porque
Cracker Barrel me dard la
oportunidad para crecer."

pasado enero. En aquella
ocasi6n el president Bush
dijo que, "el gobierno brit&-
nico tenia informaci6n de que
Saddam Hussein reciente-
mente habia obtenido una
cantidad significativa de
uranio en Africa".
El President cit6 esa
informaci6n de los britinicos
en un report, no clasificado,
publicado en septiembre. Sin
embargo, la inteligencia ame-
ricana, que recibi6 esos mis-
mos reports y los public
como material clasificado en
octubre, concluy6 que dicha
informaci6n estuvo basada en
documents fraudulentos en
el caso de Nigeria, y no se
pudo probar en el caso de
otros dos paises.
La semana pasada la admi-
nistraci6n entr6 en una series
de inconsistencies en cuanto
a lo que la Agencia Central de
Inteligencia (CIA) sabia y si
ese organism pas6 la infor-
maci6n a la Casa Blanca. En
esa ocasi6n la CIA dijo que
su director George Tenet
nunca habia visto esa line
en el discurso del Presidente.
Para el viernes, tanto el
President como su asesora
de seguridad national, Con-
dolezza Rice, sefialaron que
la CIA habia revisado el,
discurso y le habian dado su

la Repfiblica Dominicana.

Todo lo anterior hace lucir
mal al Director de la CIA,
George Tenet, quien tiene
mas de un enemigo politico
dentro del Partido Reptibli-
cano. Pero no es tan s61o la
CIA, sino otras agencies de
inteligencia americanas, co-
mo la unidad de inteligencia
del Departamento de Estado,
que nunca crey6 en los repor-
tes sobre Nigeria, much an-
tes de que el president Bush
diera su discurso de estado.
El president Bush trata de
descartar todo esto diciendo
que se olvida el cuadro amplio
de que Saddam Hussein que-
ria obtener armas de destruc-
ci6n masivas, y que el mundo
esta mejor sin 61. Ciertamen-
te, lo sefialado por el Presi-
dente es correct, el mundo
si est& mejor sin Hussein,
pero de lo que realmente se
trata es de la cuesti6n 6tica
de que la informaci6n que 61
ofrece a la naci6n es veraz.
Es altamente questionable
todo lo que esti apareciendo
en la opinion ptblica, lo cual
pone en tela de juicio si toda
la ret6rica de la adminis-
traci6n en torno a la amenaza
de Hussein con las armas de
destrucci6n masiva era una
correct, o si por el contrario,
se manej6 la informaci6n
para allanar el camino a la
invasion de Irak.
Todo lo anterior tiene que
ser clarificado por el gobierno,
y los medios de comunicacion
tienen la responsabilidad de
legar al fondo de esto.

B Solo Mujeres
Por la Dra. Silvia Jimenez

iPerder Peso de una Vez!
-Estimada Dra Jim6nez, he tenido problema de sobrepeso
por muchos afios. He hecho muchas dietas, estoy deprimida
y desesperada con este problema y est& afectando a mi fa-
milia. iAyfdeme por favor Lorena.
-Estimada Lorena: ComentAbamos en el articulo anterior,
del enorme problema que tenemos en la actualidad de
sobrepeso en la mujer latina. La historic se repite una y otra
vez, con p6rdida y ganancia de peso, en ciclos que parecen
interminables para muchas de ellas.
Recibo llamadas y cartas de latinas que estin desesperadas
con su problema de sobrepeso, y quieren que les de la soluci6n
con la "pastilla milagrosa", sin detenerse a analizar la raiz del
problema. Los carbohidratos procesados, son uno de los
mayores problems en el origen del sobrepeso, porque se absor-
ben rdpidamente, el cuerpo los convierte en aziucar (glucosa) y
no solo los deposit como grasa, sino que nos dan grandes
fluctuaciones en los niveles de azucar en sangre, y una de las
manifestaciones es "el hambre". Los carbohidratos procesados
que mas se consume son: pan blanco-arroz blanco-reposteria-
postres-galletas (incluyendo las bajas en grasa)-tortillas-
cereales azucarados y bebidas azucaradas (incluyendo las so-
das).
jC6mo podemos quebrar ese ciclo? Incorporando
alimentos mis enteros a la alimentaci6n. Como por ejemplo
en el desayuno, cereal de grano entero, con pan integral, o
protein: huevos, pavo bajo en grasa, o frijoles (que no sean
refritos). Los alimentos enteros se absorben mis lentamente
en la sangre, ayudandonos en el control del apetito.
Los alimentos fritos son comunes en la diet de la latina, y
contribuyen tambi6n a este problema, porque nos dan el double
de calories que los carbohidratos y las proteinas.
El sedentarismo es otra parte del problema de sobrepeso.
El cuerpo human estA disefiado para el movimiento y al no
obtenerlo, como respuesta fisiol6gica natural, diminuye la taza
metab61ica, porque no estA utilizando la gran cantidad energia
(digase calories) ingerida.
Lorena, se que no es fAcil cambiar nuestra rutina de
alimentaci6n y ejercicio, pero si te puedo decir, que es la inica
soluci6n duradera para el exceso de peso. Y te digo esto, no
solo por mi gran experiencia con personas con sobrepeso, sino
por mi propia experiencia, que inici6 hace 9 afios, con el cambio
en mi alimentaci6n y la incorporaci6n de ejercicio a mi rutina
diaria. No te puedo decir que fue facil, pero si lo hacemos con
conciencia y convencidas de querer una soluci6n, se puede.
lograr. Para mAs informaci6n. Visitenos: www.solomujeres.com

Mas Preguntas... y Respuestas
El period para renovar la TPS para los hondurefios y los
nicaragfienses se venci6 el pasado 7 de Julio. Si no lo hizo ya
es muy tarde. Pregunta: Soy nicaraguense y estoy en los
Estados Unidos desde el 2000. Mi-esposo se registry para la
TPS en 1999 y ha seguido renovandolo. Yo s61o lo hice hasta
el mes pasado cuando se dio el plazo para renovarla. Tengo
entendido que.que era como tirar el dinero si no habia aplicado
originalmente en el 1999. Me la aprobaran? Mirtha Flores -
St. Petersburg Respuesta:
Respuesta: En general, esto es cierto. Pero afortunadamente
a usted la cubre una de las excepciones, ya que usted es esposa
de alguien que hizo la TPS desde un principio. O sea que aunque
usted s61l lo hizo recientemente, usted califica para este
beneficid. Con las mismas condiciones califican los hijos
menores (menos de 21 afios) no casados de un nicaragfiense
(o hondurefio) quien se acogi6 a la TPS desde un principio.
Califican mientras permanezcan menores de 21 afios de edad.
Pregunta: Soy de Guatemala, pero mi esposo es hondurefio.
El tiene su status de la TPS comenzando desde el afio 1999.
Yo me encueritro en los Estados Unidos del afio 2002, pero
por miedo, nunca intent registrarme para el TPS. Ahora lo
hice porque me dijeron que esposas de hondurefios pueden
hacerlo. Evangelina Matos Tampa
Respuesta: Usted tiene raz6n. Segdn las reglas, solamente
debe comprobar que usted es la esposa de aiguien que ya
tiene el TPS. Lo mismo ocurre con los hijos de nicaragfenses
o hondurefios que ya tienen el TPS.
Pregunta: Me puede dar la direcci6n del websitee" donde
uno puede hacer citas con la Oficina de Inmigraci6n local en
Tampa?
Respuesta: La direcci6n es la siguiente: www.bcis-fla.com
Muchas personas no se registraron para la TPS por miedo.
Pero aunque es cierto que uno se estA registrando ante la oficina
de Inmigraci6n, ha sido la norma el no buscar a nadie quien se
haya registrado. En otros casos algunas personas se registraron
la primer vez y obtuvieron su permiso de trabajo, pero despu6s
se atemorizaron y no renovaron la TPS. Esta actitud no tiene
sentido ya que una vez registrado ante Inmigraci6n, puede
seguir beneficiAndose del estado legal y el permiso de trabajar.

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 enjoyment

Continuedfrom last week...

Well, the summer done
passed by, and it's been quite
a summer I'll tell ya. Old Doc'
doneliveduptohiscard all right.
Why he's got a bunch o' people
follering him around like the
Pied Piper of St. Petersburg.
Spreading happiness around
like strawberry jam.
I scarcely get to wait on him
one on one; he's always got
folks waiting to catch him
when he comes to the counter.
He will riot get a booth or a
table because he says only I
can wait on him. Well, that
makes me feel so good I almost
want to turn down the five-
dollar tip. Almost, I say, 'cause
I am a professional waitress,
and we got our rules. Getting
paid is the top of the list.
He must be very smart,
'cause all the folks he talks to
come back by the diner to eat
and sooner or later they come
by and tell me what good ad-
vice they got, and how it helps
their business. In a cock-eyed
way I feel like I share the credit,
although my only real job is to
recommend the plate of the
day and old Doc he scoffs it
down and always remarks on
how good it is. He's got the
whole kitchen killing them-
selves to fix him special dishes.
The other day Rueben brought
in a live lobster and fixed it
himself and only charged him
$8.501 Can you imagine, for a
live lobster? Well, I never seen
a man so proud of getting an-
other man his supper as
Rueben that day. It was so
good that Doc said I deserved
a bigger tip. That's when he
went to the "A" roll in his front
pocket.
The "A" roll was a roll of new
twenties scotch taped end-to-
end. He had a tiny scissor on
his key chain and he'd roll off
what he needed and snip it off.
He snipped me off a twenty af-

ter the lobster feast, and I tried
to split it with Rueben, but he
turned me down. Shoot, he
owned the place, he didn't
need the ten, but he shure ap-
preciated the gesture.
Folks began asking ques-
tions about him but they hit a
brick wall. I guess I knew him
better than anyone, and I
didn't know squat. I reckon I
talked to Doc everyday.for at
least an hour, and at the erid
of the day, I'd found out more
about myself than about him.
Why, he was a regular Oprah
Winfrey the way he'd get you
to talk about yourself
Some snoops followed him
around and all they found out
was that he spent hours al-
most everyday at the library.
He'd work them computers all
day, or he'd get a big fat book;
pick out an easy chair, and
read eight hours straight. No
wonder he was so smart.
One day a feller he gave ad-
vice to said he saw him a
standing on Franklin and
Kennedy, looking kinda sor-
rowful, and he asked him what
he was a looking at. Now, this
feller is an old geezer what
hain't got much to do; doubt if
he's ever been beyond the city
limits of Tampa, and he re-
members everything like an
elephant, so he was so shocked
by what Doc said that he come
a running to tell me almost
word per word.
"I'm looking for the wonder-
ful Court-house that used to
be here, with its wonderful
plants, and the Confederate
monument, and the two can-
ons, one German gun and one
Napoleon from the Civil War.
What happened to that mar-
velously original court house?"
"Gone" the old geezer said
in disgust. "Progress they
called it then."
"What about Tibbett's cor-
ner? I remember a Tampa Elec-
tric streetcar office that looked
like someone chopped two win-
dows out of a Birney streetcar
and set it on the sidewalk. And
I remember you could bet
baseball and horses inside and
get a cool draft beer."
"Same fellers thought the
Court House should go, come
took Tibbett's when the street-
cars quit running in 1947."
"Pity. That Court House was
the jewel in the crown of down-
town Tampa."

Well, what do you think of
that? Some time, a long time
ago, Doc had lived in Tampa,
or maybe passed through.
Maybe he was in the Air Force
at MacDill. But, it didn't fig-
ure, cause he didn't look old
enough. But, it was puzzling.
Doc didn't answer questions
straight on. He'd smile and
shrug and say "Perhaps" or
"Maybe" or "It could be" but he
never nailed no answer on a
direct question, and after
awhile, you learned not to ask
questions.
Now right here let me tell
you a little secret. I had my eye
on 'Doc' after a bit. You know I
had no luck with men all my
life. My mom said it was be-
cause I grew tits by the time I
was in the sixth grade. Even
my daddy said it was the sign
.of the devil, and I tried to tape
them down and hide them, but
shoot, even the male teachers
took notice and was always a
peeking at me in gym class.
My luck ran out in high
school cause first my paw died
of a heart attack, and the next
year my maw of lung cancer
from smoking three packs of
Camels a day. I was left all
alone in the trailer, so I mar-
ried my paw's partner in the
trucking business. He was
much older than me and the
only passion he felt was when
he was punching me. He had
a devilish hook to the body.
I run away to Mobile and got
me a dee-vorce, and run right
into a short order cook in an
Eye-talian pizza parlor where
I worked. I was a bit smarter
then, and didn't marry him. He
was a great lover for about
three years and I learned
enough to like it, but then he
heard about my husband
punching me, and it sounded
good to him, so after we made
love he beat me. After awhile,
he skipped the love part and
just beat me. That's when I run
away to Cross City. I went
there cause the name sounded
religious, you know?
I was happy in Cross City
at the Diner. I was making big
tips. That was when I married
Willy Jo Bob who ran a Jiffy-
Lub place. He made love like
he changed oil, in ajiffy. It was
him came up with the Dolly
Partin idea. Boy, tips just in-
creased by 100 percent. If I
could sang, I probably could
bought the diner.
By the time Doc showedup
in Tampa I'd been without a
man for one whole year. Twelve
months without making love or
taking a beating. Why, I never
been so happy, I let myself get
sloppy. I had a great figure but
I let it get buried under a ton
of fat. The only concession I
made to my looks was to go to
La France beauty salon every
Friday and get me a $35 C.J.
That's a combined job: hair,
nails and facial. Hell, I thought
I looked like the cat's meow.
Now, I know I looked like a
movie poster from 1940.
Along about in July my an-
tennae start to quiver. I can
sense when a man is looking
at me a certain way, and I
caught Doc sneaking a peak at
my bosoms when I leaned over
to serve him, and look at my
legs when I reached up to get
the china from the shelf. By
August I was unbuttoning the


top button and I shortened my
skirts by four inches. I had
Betty Grable legs, my paw said,
and in the yearbook I was
voted best figure, and best legs.
No matter how fat the butt got,
or my waistline got, nature
made my legs stay the same.
When I caught Doc taking
a whole lot of interest in my
legs, I went and joined one of
them new exercise place that
they use to call a gym and now
they called them fitness cen-
ters. I tried to make a choice
based on names, but they was
confusing. I boiled it down to
The Body Shoppe and The Iron
Works, and I chose the Iron
Works, cause I wasn't sure
they didn't fix fenders at the
Body Shoppe.
I stopped eating at the
Diner, carried around a bottle
of pure water from France and
ran everywhere I went. By the
end of August I was down to
my killer high school figure.
Why even my waist was down
to 26 inches and I had to go
out to buy new panties cause
my old ones would fall down
around my shoes when I
walked fast at the diner.
Rueben said it was disgusting
and put the customers off their
food. The Greek cook Theo,
though it was sexy. I bought
new panty hose.
Well, here's where the story
picks up. I was stuck working
one Sunday, and I was feeling
sad cause Doc never ate at the
Diner on Sunday cause it was
usually my day off. But on this
Sunday Lavonia, the Sunday
waitress had to take off be-
cause her husband Tiger
Jones, a boxer, had used her
like the heavy bag, and her ribs
were all sore and bruised, and
I certainly can sympathize with
her, so I volunteered to work
Sunday, otherwise Rueben
would have fired her, because
in Rueben's Ayer's Diner there
was no excuse to miss a days
work unless you had AIDS or
it was the day you got your
green card. That's the way
Rueben was.
Worse thing about working
Sunday is that no-body
comes in during the day. Ev-
erybody is gone out to
Clearwater to swim or fish. The
criminals is all sleeping off
their Saturday nights, tired
from their nights of raping and
stealing. Decent folks go to
church and fix Sunday dinner


at home. The rest, as I say, is
at the beach. You could stand
still on Kennedy Boulevard for
one whole hour with your eyes
shut and not be in danger of
getting hit by a car. Damn, it's
downright lonesome.
The sun is still high in the
sky at six when I get off. It
stays up til nine at the beach,
and the sun set is really
something' to see, but I don't
have a car or a feller, so I never
get to see it. I'm so depressed I
even decide not to run home,
nor to drink anymore
Frenchified water. I'm having
an emotional relapse to my
former slug-self when I see a
beautiful cherry red Mustang
Convertible coming up
Kennedy horn blowing and I
recognize the white Panama
Charlie Chan hat waving.
"Its ol' Docl" I squealed out
loud, my heart pumping go-
ing a hundred. Boy, am I glad
to see him!
"Elodie, hop in. Its time I
showed you the sun-set," and
he opened the door and I
popped in and almost stuck
the gearshift stick up my ass.
I was so excited I wasn't even
embarrassed.
"Hiya Doct Boy, am I glad to
see you," I gushed. I don't play
my cards too close to the vest.
I ain't good at acting coy, you
know like Scarlett O'Hara. I
can't flutter my eyelids for one
thing. And; shucks, I'm just a
fool for love. Ain't got time for
scrimishing. I'm good at being
open. My face is an open book
without an index.
Doc done traded his Mer-
cury at the Car Rental for a
Mustang Convertible. Doc says
that September and October is
the- time to enjoy the Gulf
Beaches because the kids have
gone back to school and the
beaches are empty. By Novem-
ber most of Europe is fighting
to get on the Gulf Beaches. I
reckon' he is right, altho' I
never give it much thought
because since my butt spread
to look like the continent of
Australia, I give up even buy-
ing bathing suits.
"Don't worry about a thing,
Elodie. Everything is taken
care of." Doc says and goes on
out Kennedy until he is on the
Howard Frankland Bridge and
we are headed for St. Pete
Beach.

T~iYAY~:Iby PATRmICK


(Continued from page 1)
sion reappointed Sue House and
yours truly to the Tampa Sports
Authority for a four-year term.
All four Democratic county com-
missioners Tom Scott, Pat
Frank, Jan Platt and Kathy
Castor voted for me. The
three Republican commission-
ers didn't.

Ybor City has a new retailer.
Buccaneer Heaven, which bills
itself as the world's largest re-
tailer of Tampa Bay Buccaneer
licensed merchandise, opened its
second location at 1524 E. 7th Ave.
*****
The City of Tampa is going to
push for higher parking rates and
parking fines across the city. The
issue is likely to come before City
Council in three to four weeks.
We hear the staff recommenda-
tion would be to eliminate the
current policy of free parking for
the first three hours in Ybor City
parking garages during the day
and instead charge $1. It is also
likely that rates for parking
meters in Ybor City could double.
It is a well-known fact that a
major cause of downtown dying
off in the 60's, 70's and 80's was
the cost of parking. Consumers
stopped patronizing downtown
retailers because they had to pay
for parking. Instead, they flocked
to the malls in the-suburbs
where parking wa's free and con-
venient. This lesson in how to kill
an urban shopping and enter-
tainment district obviously has
not-been learned by some in city
government.
The city says it has a $4 mil-
lion shortfall in its parking busi-
ness. Two million dollars of this
shortfall is blamed on the two
parking garages in Ybor City and
the other $2 million is blamed on
downtown parking facilities.
We understand the city's need
for revenue, but putting small
Ybor City merchants out of busi-
ness is not the answer to the
city's revenue problems.
The city should look at Ybor's
parking issues in a different
light than downtown's. Most visi-
tors to downtown have to go
there to conduct business with
the courts, city governments,
county governments or to attend
events. These visitors have no
choice but to park in downtown
and therefore a parking rate in-
crease in downtown would have
little impact on downtown traf-
fic. It's a much different picture
in Ybor City.
People come to Ybor City to
shop, eat and play. If the cost of
parking becomes unreasonable,
there are plenty of competing
Businesses in other areas of town
that offer free parking that would
attract 1bor's patrons. The me-
tering of what was previously
free on street parking spaces and
free city parking lots two years
ago hurt many of the small busi-
nesses in Ybor City, An increase
would put the final nail in the
coffin of those already suffering
businesses. Few will pay $2 to
park for a $1 cup of coffee. Few
will pay for parking for the priii-.
lege of being able to shop and go
to a movie. The city has been try-
ing to encourage small shops and
restaurants to come to Ybor City
to balance against the plethora


of bars that inhabit the historic
district. Parking rate increases
will inhibit this effort. Bar pa-
trons and club goers will pay the
extra coast for parking to go to a
hot spot, but shoppers and din-
ers are less likely to do so. High
parking rates mean more bars
and fewer merchants.
Ybor City business owners
should contact City Council
members and the mayor's office
immediately to voice opposition
to the plan before it goes too far.

Americans for Immigration
Control, Inc. is a Washington,
D.C. based advocacy group that
lobbies for a moratorium on im-
migration: The group mailed out
a nationwide survey that smacks
of being anti-Hispanic and is in-
flammatory towards that popu-
lation. They use the current cen-
sus numbers to scare non-His-
panic whites by claiming that.
English will no longer be
America's clear and predominant
language and calls the recent
trend the "Browning of America."
They also state, "Immigration
costs U.S.-born workers $133 bil-
lion a year in job losses." Ask a
farmer, roofing contractor or ho-
tel manager how many U.S. born
workers want to pick crops,
sweat nailing shingles or work
seven days a week cleaning
rooms. This statement fails to
take into account that thousands
of immigrants are requested
each year by U.S. companies to.
fill technical jobs they say can-
not be filled by our current U.S.
workforce. Many of these immi-
grants enhance our nation's
brainpower. They are tops in
their fields of science, medicine
and technology.
Americans for Immigration
Control, Inc.'s questionnaire's
results will be communicated to
our political leaders but the sur-
vey is slanted to create a certain
response.
One question reads, "Do you
believe the United States can
continue to absorb an unlimited
number of immigrants without
adversely affecting the economic
and social fabric of the nation?"
Who would possibly answer
"yes" to this question? But the
truth is the U.S. does limit the-
amount of legal immigrants com-
ing to this nation..
Another question reads, "Im-
migrants, legal and illegal, cost
taxpayers $66 billion in 2002. Do
you approve or disapprove.of this
use of tax dollars?" Their cost fig-
ure is suspect and includes im-
migrants who are U.S. citizens.
It also fails to mention that these
immigrants contribute billions of
.dollars in taxes.
But our favorite was, "Immi-
grants were 64% more likely to
receive Medicaid benefits than
native Americans ... does this
level of tax-financed support of
immigrants concern you?" Their
use of the term "native American"
does not mean American Indians,
instead it refers to people born
-in America. This is typical arro-
gance of anti-immigrant groups.
They like to forget that all of us,
except for American Indians,
are here because of immigra-
tion or slavery.

La Nuova Sicilia Unita Lodge


is holding a dinner and dance on
Saturday, July 26 beginning at 5
p.m. at the Sons of Italy Hall, lo-
cated at 3315 West Lemon Street.
The event includes a baked
chicken and spaghetti dinner, a
raffle and music by Herb Sheldon
and his band. Cost is $15 per per-
son with the proceeds going for
the maintenance of the lodge's
building and its charitable
works, such as its scholarship
program. Call Frank Filocco at

The Port of Corpus Christi in
Texas has signed the first agree-
ment on strategic work between
a U.S. port and the Cuban gov-
ernment. The agreement calls for
initial bulk shipments to Cuba
and the development of refrig-
erator and container shipping. It
lays out plans for future activity
and cooperation between the
Port of Corpus Christi and
Cuba's food import agency,
Alimport.
Ruben Bonilla, Jr., the chair-
man of the Port of Corpus
Christi's commission, said of the
agreement, "It's another very
progressive step toward the ul-
timate abolition of an embargo
whose time has been long
passed."
We would guess that part of
the reasoning behind Cuba's de-
cision to sign such a lucrative
agreement with a U.S. port that
is quite distant from Cuba com-
pared to Florida ports is because
Mr. Bonilla and other Corpus
Christi officials were willing to
make public statements de-
nouncing the U.S. embargo and
travel restrictions. The Cubans
are aware of the political impli-
cations that this might have on
U.S. Senate Majority Leader
Tom DeLay, who represents
Texas and so far has been a sup-
porter of the embargo.
Mr. Bonilla said in interviews
that he hoped the agreement
would take current and future
business from Florida ports and
move it to Corpus Christi. He
added that much of Florida's
population and government op-
pose normalized relations with
Cuba, so why should they enjoy
economic benefits from trade
with Cuba?
Mr. Bonilla seems to have an
excellent grasp of what motivates
the Cuban government's trade
decision.
*****
In February, a sewer main un-
der the channel between Davis
Island and Hookers Point was
damaged by a construction crew
that was hired by the City of
Tampa to install a pipe to carry
reclaimed water to South Tampa
and Davis Island. The damage
caused construction on Channel
Street on Davis Island to go way
over the planned schedule. Resi-
dents on the street were sup-
posed to live with the construc-
tion for three weeks. It has now
been almost seven months and
the end is still weeks away. This
had caused a problem for one
family in particular who lives at
523 Channel Drive.
The couple who owns the
house wanted to place the house
on the market just as construc-
tion began. They want to sell in
order to move so they can take
care of their ill parents in Texas.
But the construction has com-


pletely. surrounded the house
and the activity has caused
cracks to form and pipes to burst.
The city would normally pay for
the damage, but the big problem
is that the house is not sellable
while the construction contin-
ues. The delay has caused a hard-
ship on the family and after
Mayor Iorio found out about the
trouble she decided to take an
unprecedented step to resolve
the problem.
She wants the city to buy the
house for $330,000 now. After
construction is finished the city
would repair the house and sell
it. This decision by Mayor Pam
Iorio is humane, compassionate
and fair, but it could set a prece-
dent that makes the city liable
for inconvenience rather than
just damages. We don't know if
the decision is right or wrong,
but we admire the mayor for fol-
lowing her heart and making a
gutsy call.

Influence, a trade magazine for
the lobbying industry, ranked
the top grossing Washington,
D.C. lobbying firms that are not
part of a law firm. Alcalde & Faye
ranked sixth with 2002 revenues
of $12.5 million. Hector Alcalde,
former Tampefio, is the founder
of the firm. Alcalde and Faye is
retained by the Tampa Port Au-
thority, Hillsborough County
Aviation Authority and
Hillsborough County. The City of
Tampa recently ended its eight-
year relationship with the firm
to contract with the law firm of
Salem Saxon.

For several months we have
been critical of County Adminis-
trator Dan Kleman for dragging
his feet on filling the vacant po-
sition of assistant county admin-
istrator for community services.
Our venom was due to the fact
that there was a highly qualified
Hispanic who had applied for the
job and we felt Mr. Kleman was
fishing for more applicants so he
could avoid naming a Hispanic.
Well, Mr. Kleman has proven us
wrong and we are quite pleased.
He appointed Bernardo
Garcia, the county's director of
Public Works since 1997, to the
assistant county administrator's
post. This makes Mr. Garcia the
highest-ranking Hispanic in
county government.
Mr. Garcia is eminently quali-
fied. He has effectively and effi-
ciently managed the 650 employ-
ees at the Public Works depart-
ment for six years. He is known
as a no nonsense problem solver
who served as the interim direc-
tor of the troubled Planning and
Growth Management depart-
ment for six months and cleaned
it up.
His leadership skills will be
needed in rhis new position. Dis-
crimination issues and misman-
agement have recently damaged
some of the departments he will
oversee.
He is now responsible for Pub-
lic Works, Planning and Growth
Management, Animal Services,
Community Improvement, Fire
Rescue, Parks and Recreation,
Solid Waste Management, and
Water.
We congratulate Dan Kleman
and the County Commission for
the very wise appointment.

Moffitt Cancer CenterAnouncments
H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research,
Institute's Brenda Moore-Shiggs, R.N., who
served in the genitourinary clinic for five


years, was chosen Moffitt's Nurse of the Year
during the Nurses' Week Recognition Cer-
emony. Moore-Shiggs recently moved to the
clinical trials office, where she will serve as a
coordinator. According to one nomination,
she "mentored new nurses coming into the

Frank Vrionis, M.D., MPH, Ph.D, neuro-
surgeon, director of the neuro-oncology pro-
gram, treats patients with metatastic tumors
to the spine that cause cord compression
with a recently discovered procedure that
involves surgery and radiotherapy. The pro-
cedure, recently published as an abstract by
the American Society of Clinical Oncology,
involves surgical resection plus radiotherapy
to relieve the cord compression. The results
of the study found that patients who under-
went this technique had superior outcomes
with regard to ability to walk and other mea-
sures of quality of life.

Message from

The Chairman of the Board


Hello, Ybor!
I can't believe that nearly
100 days as Chairman has
passed! And, I want to thank
the Ybor Chamber staff for
their patience and time with
me in my new role.
As I stroll.the streets of
Ybor and introduce myself
to the merchants, I know
how fortunate the City of
Tampa is to have this
Historic District. I also realize
how lucky Ybor City is to
have a fantastic natural
infrastructure in place that
makes day and night daily


activities and events so
spectacular for our guests.
Let's take advantage of this!
How? On July .3rd, we
launched a "Celebrate Ybor"
series and asked our
merchants to recognize the
July 4th weekend by
decorating their storefronts.
We sent out press releases
encouraging- people to kick-
off their 4th .early by joining
us on July 3rd from 6-10
p.m. This series is an effort
to encourage people to
rediscover the early evening
hours in Ybor City.
We can't do this without
you! We are finalizing our
"Celebrate Ybor" series and
will be distributing this to
you in the near future with
ideas about how you can
help support this Ybor
Chamber effort.
It will take all of us
working together to make
Ybor City simply irresistible.
With Warm Regards,

After one year of reviewing
over 400 applications of quali-
fied individuals from all over
the country, county officials
realized they didn't have to
look far to find the perfect can-
didate to fill the position of
Hillsborough
County assistant
administrator of Assist
community ser- ol
vices.
The county t
commissioners
officially con-
firmed Bernardo
Ga r c i a,
Hillsborough
County, public
works director
since 1997, as
the new assistant
administrator on
Wednesday, July
16. He is one of
four assistants to
County Adminis-
trator Dan
Kleman. As assis-
tant administra-
tor for commu-
_nity services,
Garcia will over-

and is confident he has the
experience, work ethic and
knowledge to help all these of-
fices run at an optimal level.
"I am honored to have been
chosen for this position over so
many qualified applicants and
am eager to prove why I am the
best candidate for the job,"
said Garcia. "I believe it is my
experience in so many areas
that will enable me to succeed."
Garcia spent six years in the
military, which he said pro-
vided him with leadership
skills. His time as a private
business owner gave him the
experience in working under
pressure he said he .either
produced or went out of busi-
ness. Over the past 15 years
he worked for four different
Public Works departments
throughout the country, which
provides him with knowledge
of how county government is
run, and his time spent in
Hillsborough County's Public
Works Department gave him
firsthand knowledge on this
community.
But, despite his impressive
resume, Garcia is quick to
point out that it is not his time
in the military, private sector
and government that made
him the man he is today, but
rather his work on a farm as a
child growing up in San Anto-
nio, Texas.
"There were eight of us in
the family and my parents
taught us all to have a strong
work ethic work, work, work
and you shall succeed," ex-
plained Garcia. "If you combine
That work ethic with education,
the sky is the limit.
"Working on a farm is as dif-
ficult as any job in the world.
When the cows have to be
milked, they have to be milked.
When the animals have to be
fed, they have to be fed. And
when the crops need to be har-
vested, they need to be har-.
vested. Animals and crops
don't know if it is a weekend'
or holiday, there is no day off
on a farm.
"It also taught me team-


work. You can't haul 200 bails
of hay yourself. You can't har-
vest a crop yourself. It took a
team of us to do it, each with a
job to do, no one job more im-
portant than the other. All of
us worked hard as one unit to

accomplish one goal."
If life on the farm gave him
his work ethic, the military
honed it. He spent six years in
the military after graduating
from Texas Tech with a degree
in civil engineering. For two
years he built missile sites de-
signed to shoot down Russian
military jets for NATO in the
mountains of Germany during
the Cold War.
"We had to construct these
sites in the cold snow, hands
numb and frozen with wind
burning your face," said
Garcia. "It was extremely diffi-
cult, but that was our job and
our duty. Working under those
intense conditions taught me
that I could do anything I put
my mind to. It wasn't. always
fun, but it was extremely sat-
isfying work."
When his military service
was complete, Garcia returned
to Texas and formed Morton
Manufacturing Company with
his brother, where he managed
the design, tooling and manu-
facturing of components for
vehicles and other transporta-
tion equipment. After 10 years,
they sold the company for a
"nice profit," which Garcia
used to travel the United States
and Mexico for the next year.
"Butwhen I returned to Texas,
I realized that the money
wouldn't last forever," said
Garcia. "I knew it was time
to find a new career, and
that's when I got into county
government."
His career in county govern-
ment began in Frio County,
Texas as a county engineer.
Over the next 17 years, he also
worked as Public Works divi-
sion manager in San Diego
County, California; director of
Public Works in the County of
Nueces, Corpus Christi, Texas;
and finally settled down in
Hillsborough County as direc-
tor of Public Works.
"I actually had several op-
tions on the table when my
wife, Ines, and I decided to
leave Corpus Christi. We just
wanted to go somewhere with


a different climate, so I sent my
resume out all over the coun-
try and got about five re-
sponses. We looked at living in
the mountains and arid re-
gions, we looked at living on
the East Coast and West Coast,
and looked at liv-
ing in a rural and
trator urban area, but
es in the end de-
cided on
a Hillsborough
County because
we just loved the
community. We
loved the semi-
tropical environ-
ment and my
wife is originally
from Mexico, so
loved the oppor-
tunity to live in a
community with
such a strong
Latin culture. We
definitely made
the perfect
choice."
If Garcia's
past work experi-
ence in county's
similar to
Hillsborough
County is an in-
dictor of what
kind of leader he
will be, county
officials look to
have made the
ars or five perfect choice in

11 our lives trator of commu-
nity services.
"My time in
San Diego is what really pre-
pared me for what lies ahead
here in Hillsborough," said
Garcia. "When I was in San
Diego in the late 80's and earl
90's, we had a growth spurt
that would not stop. We were
gaining 100,000 new residents
a year. We wanted to close the
door and tell people to stop
coming, but we couldn't. With
that influx of people came a lot
of challenges to the infrastruc-
ture of the county roads,
bridges, water, sewage treat-
ment and traffic. We needed
the infrastructure to respond
to the high population.
"We have a similar influx
coming to Hillsborough County
now. Over half of the county's
land is still undeveloped, but
as people continue to relocate
here, it will begin to be devel-
oped, and, as assistant county
administrator of community
services, I am going to have to
deal with the issues this popu-
lation increase brings with it.
"It is not going to be easy. I
know there will be difficult
times when Ill wonder what I
got myself into, but I promise I
will get the job done and do it
right. I don't know how long it
will take. Maybe it will take six
months, two years or five years,
but when all is said and done,
I promise that everyone work-
ing for the county will have this
community running at an op-
timal level and all our lives will
be better because of it."

On the Other Hand

by Lee Drury De Cesare


How'bout Them Druids? Stonehenge Is a Girl!


We of the x-chromosome
persuasion had an excellent
week. Our team hit home runs
at Stonehenge and in evolu-
tionary biology. The y-chromo-
some team struck out in both.
Na, na, na, fellows.
Canadian scientists headed
by gynecologist Anthony Perks
unraveled the Stonehenge
puzzle and published their
findings in Britain's Journal of
the Royal Society of Medicine.
"Stonehenge is a massive
female fertility symbol, accord-
ing to Canadian researchers
who think they have finally
solved the mystery of the an-
cient monument in southern
England." These scientific
paladins assert that, viewed
from above in a plane,
Stonehenge presents the fe-
male vagina.
The lab gallants wax quite
poetic about the Stonehenge
anatomical display: "Viewed
from above, Perks suggests
Stonehenge's inner bluestone
circle represents the labia mi-
nora and the giant outer
sarsen stone circle is the labia
major. The altar stone is the
clitoris and the open center is
the birth canal."
Men have stamped "phallic
symbol' on every little mound
of earth or protrusion with tire-
some narcissism. They claimed
Stonehenge columns phallic.
Everything, everywhere, any
time, any place is male. Guys
have mounted male statues on
every block of every street in
every city the world over. I once
fought a Bust Parity battle at
Hillsborough Community Col-
lege to get some female busts
in the library to balance the
wall-to-wall male display.
The library had a passel of
busts of dead white guys and
the obligatory token Black
bust of Langston Hughes. I
became importunate a tac-
tic at which I excel-until the
administration finally acquired
some busts of famous women.
It did so with ill grace. But I
didn't care whose feathers I
ruffled as long as female stu-
dents saw some female busts
to suggest that they too were
in the running for the fruits of


fame and fortune.
I wish this Stonehenge
epiphany had come in time to
be included in "The Vagina
Monologues," which my hus-
band and I saw in New York a
couple of years ago. Rudy
Giuliani forbade his wife,
Donna, to appear in the pro-
duction and then ran off with
thatcross-eyed home wrecker
anyway.
My husband said, "My God!
Oh, hell!" at the dialogue
throughout the play, but we
women were enchanted to
have our nether regions receive
the reverent celebration rou-
tinely accorded male fertility.
equipment.
Canadian Stonehenge ren-
egade scientists say that the
monument's representing fe-
male fertility makes sense.
Primitive people's main con-
cerns were birth and death.
Women gave birth; so women
were the more important sex
because they demonstrably
continued life.
Men's contribution to the
process took a while to dis-
cover. When it finally dawned
on guys that they had a part
in producing children, they
retaliated by initiating mar-
riage because they wanted to
pen up women to make sure
the children they were club-
bing animals over the head to
feed were indeed their offspring.
The sexist louts dethroned
female goddesses and did what
George Bush always accuses
anybody of who questions his
fables about African yellow-
cake: the fellows rewrote his-
tory and obliterated lore of
women's central place in cul-
ture. They corralled women at
home minding babies, serving
as cleaning drudges, and slop-
ping the hogs. This has been
the agenda since.
But now, ta dah! Those dar-
-ling Canadian scientists have
set things straight on Stone-
henge. Women are back in the
game. We have confirmation of
our clout before the guys bush-
whacked us.. If we ran things
7,000 years ago when we were
fertility goddesses, wve can do
it again. For my part, I shall


needlepoint each fellow on the
Stonehenge Canadian team a
whoopee cushion for his gal-
lantry to womankind.
The worm has turned in
evolutionary biology as well; I
wish I had paid more attention
in science classes and had not
almost flunked organic chem-
istry so as to understand the
triumph better.
James Wade in The New
York Times reports the biologi-
cal hazard that men face: "Al-
though most men are unaware
of the peril, the Y chromosome
has been shedding genes furi-
ously over the course of evolu-
tionary time, and it is now a
fraction of the size of its part-
ner, the X chromosome ... The
decay of the Y stems from the
fact that it is forbidden to en-
joy the principal advantage of
sex, which is, of course, for
each member of a pair of chro-
mosomes to swap matching
pieces of DNA with its partner."
The y-chromosome swaps
DNA with itself by an incred-
ible u-turn mechanism. This
scientific description of narcis-
sistic male molecular behavior
explains one of life's enduring
mysteries: why guys will drive
out a tank of gas before they
will stop to ask for directions.
It also accounts for their
terror of commitment and
baby-baby-don't-get-hooked-
on-me mantra, why they hog
the TV control, why they sit on
their Stratolounger thrones
watching football and calling
their wives to bring them an-
other Bud while she suckles
children and cooks whole sides
of beef so that she can answer
his one conversational gambit:
"What's for dinner?"
Scientists say that this re-
fusal to swap genetic material
means the Y-chromosome has
only ten or twenty million years
before it will have shrunk to
extinction. Whoopee for us big
fat x-chromosomes then. Guess
who will head up all the For-
tune 500 companies, occupy
most of the seats in Congress,
and reign Commander in Chief?
The Druids built Stone-
henge. They worshiped oak
trees. Sounds good to me. I


must pitty pat down to the gar-
den patio at Home Depot to
buy the biggest container oak
I can find. Each morning I
shall face the gulf and, peer-
ing through the foliage of my
sacred balcony Druidic pot-
ted oak, perform ablutions,
intone invocations, and trill
Druidic Gregorian chants. Any

MY VIEWPOINT
By John T. Spera


A Miracle in Singapore

"Behold, how good and joyful a thing it is:
brethren, to dwell together in unity." Prayer Book


Regrettably, the medical
miracle didn't occur during the
surgery of the separation of the
Iranian twins, Laleh and
Ladan Bijani, but, neverthe-
less, a "miracle"did transpire
in that operating room in
Raffles Hospital in Singapore.
The Raffles Hospital admin-
istration summoned the 28
neurosurgeons from around
the world to take part in the
surgery on Tuesday, July 8.
They were of diverse ethnic
cultures, including our own Dr.
Benjamin Carson, the director
of pediatric neuro-surgery at
the John Hopkins Hospital. Dr.
Carson has separated three
craniopagus (conjoined at the
head) children. Dr. Carson said
the precise cause of craniopa-
gus twins is unknown at the
present time, but the most
commonly accepted thinking is
that the development of con-
joined craniopagus identical
twins results from the fission
of a single fertilized ovum (egg)
though, the when, how or
why of the incomplete division
areuncertain. A few scientists
hold to the.popular theory that
such twins become reunited
during the fourth week after
fertilization when the two rap-
idly growing embryos make
direct contact and for some
reason adhere to each other.
In Zambia, Africa, Dr.
Carson spent eight tedious and
meticulous hours separating
the entangled brains of cran-
iopagus twins and all he had
to work with was a loop mag-
nification and his headlight,
instead of the tremendously
powerful $350,000 operating
microscope he has at his own
clinic in America! I suspect the
reason why Dr. Keith Goh, a
Singaporian, summoned Dr. B.
Carson was because of his ex-
tensive experience with 'un-
taigling" brainsand, of course,
with his knowledge of separat-
ing craniopagus twins.
Among many issues in the
surgery in Singapore was only
a large vein supplied the two
brains with blood, and the fact
that the twins were in a sitting
position due to their abnormal-
ity. As many as 28 doctors,
which included Drs. Goh and
Carson, and at least 100 medi-
cal assistants struggled inde-
fatigably in the small operat-
ing room to give these two edu-
Scated women twins their dream
of living their separate lives.
Even with all the advances
in medical technology, nothing
could predict the way the blood
flowed or the densities of their
combined skulls presented.
SI predict many ethicists will
persist the negativity sur-
rounding this separation, but
the patients made it clear that
they wanted the surgery in
spite of a 50/50 chance of sur-
vival of either one or result
in a coma for either patient.
Dr. Arthur Caplan, head of
the University of Pennsyl-
vania's bioethics center, said,
"It's a terrible outcome, but I
don't think that says this was-
ethically wrong."
The patients implicitly un-
derstood.the hazards that they
could die or be left brain deadly
During the operation, be-
cause of the wavering blood
pressure and excessive bleed-
ing, the thought of proceeding
with the operation or leaving
the twins joined occurred to
the doctors, which, according
to Chairman of the. Raffles
Hospital Loo Choon Yong,
would be "very, very risky."
The surgeons were repeat-


I Q

Dr. Benjamin Carson, director of pediatric
neuro-surgery at the John Hopkins Hospital


edly reminded of the pa-
tients' wills to live indepen-
dent lives in spite of the risks
involved.
The point of all this is that
Dr. Yong and Dr. Goh called all
the experts around the world,
regardless of ethnicity and cul-
tural differences, they called
for surgeons who were capable
and experienced enough to join
the hospital staff to separate
these lovely young Iranian
women, to permit them to live
separate lives!
I was especially proud of Dr.
Ben Carson because I used his
autobiography when I was a


volunteer at the Leslie Peters

Halfway House as a model to
black occupants there. In his
grade school days, Ben Carson
would hardly have been voted
"the most likely to become a
famous surgeon," His class-
mates had already given him
another label class dummy!
Dr. Carson rose above his
environment and turned im-
possible hopes into joyous re-
alities, as in the case of Dr.
Albert Schweitzer who said, "A
man is truly ethical only when
he obeys the compulsion to
help all life which he is able to
assist, and he shrinks from
injuring anything that lives."

SPORTS


No, that time of the year
that all nimrods wait for has
not yet arrived. But, in certain
parts of South Carolina, Au-
gust 15 marks the beginning
of the 2003 big game season.
Hunting season is indeed just
around the corer.
For those who will hunt
those sections of South Caro-
lina where hunting begins
early, there is no need for bows
and arrows, muzzleloaders or
other primitive weapons dur-
ing these early hunting days.
For most, regular rifle or shot-
guns are, as they have been in
the past the weapons of choice.
Hunting in the early sea-
sons is a challenge because of
the heat, the insects and the
advent of the occasional en-
counter with snakes. In order
to enjoy a productive and safe
hunt, special precautions
must be taken for these hot
weather hunts.
Because it is still summer
time in the South, tempera-
tures will no doubt be in the
80's and 90's. Particularly in-


side of those closed-in box
stands the oven like tempera-
tures will test the endurance
of even the hardiest hunter. In
order to avoid fatigue and pos-
sible dehydration hunters em-
ploy some of the most innova-
tive cooling methods.
Abundant water is the most
important ingredient for main-
taining proper body hydration.
No doubt hunters will perspire
profusely, particularly during
the late afternoon and evening
hunts, as the sun will be
present for longer periods of
time. The morning hunts are
far more benign. Lightweight
clothing is also important.
These are the times when the
use of those marvelous nettings
garments is a must. Exception-
ally useful are the "Bug Tamer"
types that prevent insects from
biting through the meshed
cloth. These offer not only the
best ventilation but the best
insect protection as well.
Some hunters carry previ-
ously frozen, water soaked
bandanas equipped with spe-


cial liquid filled cooling blad-
ders. When wrapped around
the neck, these devices will
help to stay cool. Last year, I
had occasion to see a small
battery-operated fan in the
possession of a stand hunter.
The silent little device was al-
leged to somewhat lower tem-
peratures in the stand.
The use of insect repellents
with Deet, are the most widely
used for insect protection.
Those with Deet concentra-
tions of 35 percent for adults
and 15 percent for children are
the most recommended. Spe-
cial products containing
Permethrin are on the market
to avoid encounter with ticks.
The various tick repellents are
normally applied to clothing
and are allowed to dry before
wearing the garments. Liberal
doses of repellant should be
applied around the ankles,
waist and neck. I always spray
my hat and facemask for mos-
quitoes before going into the
stand to avoid the insects bit-
ing through the thin mesh of

these garments. Read the la-
bels and follow directions on
the products that you may
choose carefully.
Snake boots, chaps and
trousers are readily available
!today and relatively inexpen-

to me, why anyone would go
,into heavily wooded areas,
:where one cannot see one's
next step without snake pro-
tection. During the warm
months, snakes have a tendency
to move about more than in the
cold months. In swampy areas,
look for the snakes to be coiled
in the higher promontories.
Sometimes those high spots
are at waist level to most hunt-
ers as we travel through the
woods. There is no snake pro-
tection available above waist
level so your good common
sense and attention is re-
quired. When traveling to or

dark hours of the early morn-

light to illuminate your path
and check the interior or your

only are snakes prone to enter
these structures but wasps
and hornets do as well.
Over the years, I have found
chaps and snake pants to be
most useful. They afford snake
protection and shield the legs
from the thorn of briars as
well. When searching for
downed animals the tightly
woven fabrics allow the hunt-
ers to slide through the bushes
easily and without snagging.
It is almost hunting season.

Yo Ho! A Pirate's Life Is Grand!


Movie: Pirates of the Car-
ibbean: Curse of the Black
Pearl
Director: Gore Verbinski
Cast: Johnny Depp,
Geoffrey Rush, OrlandoBloom,
Keira Knightley, Joinathan
Pryce, Jack Davenpdrt
Rated: PG-13 (violence)
Running time: 140 min.
It seems amazing that a
movie based on a theme park
attraction could be so good.
Disney World's Pirates of the
Caribbean ride has been a
thrill for me since childhood,
and I- applaud director Gore
Virbinski (director of The Ring),
the entire cast and the special
effects team of the Pirates of
the Caribben movie for helping
to make it one of the best films
of the summer.
The tremendously talented
Johnny Depp gives a beautiful
performance as. down-on-his-


luck pirate Capt. Jack Spar-
row, who promises to rescue
the kidnapped daughter of a
senator (played by Jonathon
Pryce). The daughter, named
Elizabeth Swann (Keira
Knightley), is taken prisoner by
a fierce clan of pirates aboard
the infamous ship known as
the Black Pearl, commanded
by the villainous Capt.
Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush). The
crew of the Black Pearl has
been cursed for many years
after stealing valuable gold.
They are quite literally the
walking dead (Whenever the
moon's light shines upon the
crew, they all turn to skeletons).
A young blacksmith named
Will Turner (Orlando Bloom,
from The. Lord of the Rings),
who has serious feelings for
Miss Swann, sets out with
Sparrow to try and save the
damsel in distress.

Over-the-top campiness
can be the death of any film.
but not here. The campiness
in Pirates is cleverly woven into
the plot, adding great fun to
the movie without making it
look bottom-of-the-barrel
dumb. Depp's brilliant perfor-
mance makes Jack Sparrow a
hilarious and lovable hero. At
times, you can't tell for sure
whose side Sparrow is on, but
you love him anyway.
Pirates moves at such a
quick and energetic pace, its
two hour plus length won't
mean a thing. It's nice to have
a summer movie for a change
that isn't a sequel or comic
book adaptation but, better
yet, is a bloody good film. While
other summer movie duds
walked the plank, Pirates will
be a sea-ferrying adventure
well worth taking.
