Greg Holder in to military offi-

report he submitted in 1998 that

speculate it was enemies he


made at the courthouse, but that
is unlikely. Whoever knew that

Mujeres Quieren a Sus Esposos De Vuelta


L ~& a;"9i


La impaciencia y el descontento va mis alla de la bases militares de los
Estados Unidos. Esposas de los soldados que han sido mandados a Iraq
estan perdiendo la paciencia y dicen que quieren a sus esposos de vuelta en
casa. Segan una encuesta hecha por la compafiia Gallop publicada hace
una semana, el porcentaje del public que cree que la guerra esta yendo
mal ha subido del 13 por ciento en mayo al 42 por ciento. Igualmente, el
porcentaje de personas que piensan que la guerra estai yendo bien ha
disminuido en un 30 por ciento. En la fase de la postguerra y pre-paz, no
son las boinas verdes o los pilots de combat de alto rango quienes estan
perdiendo sus vidas. La mayoria de las p6rdidas de vidas son soldados de
bajo rango que patrullan las calls de Bagdad, quienes desempefian
actividades rutinarias como patrullajes de vecindarios o los dep6sitos de
basura para que no los incendien. Cada vez es mis fuerte la queja y reclamo
de estas mujeres y families, que afirman, con voces de desconsuelo, ique
las muertes de sus familiares ha sido en vano!

Este process de comerciali-
zaci6n capitalist de la noticia
tiene efectos globales muy se-
rios que deben ser analizados
cuidadosamente para entender
cual es el papel del lector.
Esta semana, en un ejemplo
de comercializaci6n, las cade-
nas Telemundo y Univision,
amen de decenas de otras lati-
noamericanas transmitieron
durante various dias de manera
continue todo lo relacionado
con la vida, muerte y exequias
funerarias de la extraordinaria
cantante cubana Celia Cruz.
La audiencia o 'ratings"
fueron extraordinarios segdn
advirti6 el editorialista del New
York Times que escribio sobre
el tema. Pero, en verdad dme-
recia este event semejante
excesivo cubrimiento? dHarian
lo mismo con la muerte de
Mandela?
Parad6jicamente, la muerte

dialytambien cubano, Compay
Segundo, recibi6 un entierro
invisible, de tercera categoria
o menos -y no se puede a cul-
par a Castro por esto.
La pregunta obligada ante la
evidencia de lo que ocurre con
las noticias es, ePor que la ma-
yoria acepta pasivamente esta
superimposici6n de nuevos
valores y nuevos paradigmas
sin adoptar una posici6n cri-
tica, quizas de rebeldia?
Recordemos que la inven-
ci6n de la escritura, siglos
despu6s de la imprenta, y la
explosion de peri6dicos han
sido ocasiones para que las
gentes agrupadas se rebelaran
contra sistemas opresores.
Eran un pufiado de intelec-
tuales -grufiendo con linotipos


que se negaban a funcionar-
quienes difundian las noticias
de que la tirania debia acabar.
Pero de igual forma los
gobiernos y los sistemas de
control aprendieron a manejar
la informaci6n... la noticia.
Se decia que los diarios
eran las armas de los traba-
jadores, del proletariado y los
periodistas, eran sus voceros
y defensores. Ya no pareciera
ser asi necesariamente.
Para aquellos que escuchan
y ven el program 'Democra-
cia Ahora", o incluso otros me-
dios alternatives de perio-
dismo, la imagen que tienen de
los mismos events recontados
por las grandes cadenas, es
totalmente distinta.
Tanta disparidad entire una
y otra version no puede ser un
asunto de tono, o de opinion,
sino de contenido... de verdad.
Aunque la ecuaci6n ha cam-
biado much, no es necesaria-
mente totalmente negative,
pues ha impulsando a aquellos
disidentes del mercado capi-
talista de la noticia, a organi-
zarse, repensando los desafios
que impone la globalizaci6n, la
tecnologia, el Internet espe-
cialmente -ahora en total con-
trol de fabricar las noticias del


dia siguiente o las del tiempo
real en internet.
No se ha logrado nada de
equilibrio en la presentaci6n de
la Noticia, pues las mayorias
permanecen pasivamente ante
los televisores, dejando que sus
amos las ceben con espectA-
culos de entretenimiento, que
le roban a la noticia su seriedad
y responabilidad informative.
La ceguera de nuestra so-
ciedad capitalist desaparece
en el mismo moment que la
verdad surge. Esta tribal
verdad se establece cada vez
que a nivel local o global descu-
brimos, gracias a nuestra
participaci6n y criticism, que
la noticia no era aquella que
nos habian vendido inicial-
mente.
Pero el iluso sujeto del re-
portero modern, del editor de
noticias que aprendi6 a res-
petar el valor de la elusiva
"objetividad" mientras se
trataba de proyectar por es-
crito, o en imagenes, u oral-
mente, la verdad, ha cambiado
de duefios, o lo peor simple-
mente ha mutado.
IDigan que noticias quieren
que aqui se las fabricamos a

Santos: C6mo Lleg6 a la Cima?


Por: Mariela Davila
Hoy en dia los medios de
comunicaci6n en espafiol
estdn creciendo cada vez con
mayor rapidez, y una de las
personas que contribute con
este crecimiento en la ciudad
de Orlando es Laura Santos.
Una mujer exitosa en todo
sentido de la palabra, Santos,
vice president y gerente de
ZGS Broadcasting, duefios de
WTMO-TV40 en Orlando y
otros canales afiliados a Tele-
mundo, se mantiene informada
de los events actuales de su
comunidad para mantener a su
estacidn de noticias en la cima
de los medios de comunicaci6n
en espafiol.
"Yo trabajo muchas horas
pero constantemente estoy
leyendo diferentes peri6dicos
para mantenerme actuali-
zada. Quiero que mi estaci6n
sea la mejor, sirviendo a su
comunidad latina con much
profesionalismo", dice Santos
Antes de ejercer la carrera
de periodismo, Santos ense-
fiaba a nifios con problems
de aprendizaje. Fue maestra
por casi un afio.
Sin embargo, siempre le
gust6 escribir. Fueron el
consejo de una buena amiga
y su talent literario, los
m6biles que la l1evaron a
redactar las noticias para el
noticiero de las once de la
noche en WINK-TV11, una
estaci6n de noticias de CBS
en Ft. Myers. Poco tiempo
despu6s la ascendieron a
reporter, .posici6n que de-
sempefi6 por cuatro aiaos en
el canal.
Asi comenz6 con su carrera
en los medios de comunica-
ci6n lo cual la hizo la primer
periodista latina en la ciudad
de Ft. Myers, Florida en ese
tiempo.
"Yo no era periodista, es


Laura Santos, vice pre-.
sidente y gerente de ZGS
Broadcasting.

mAs habia estudiado sicologia
y antropologia y estaba traba-
jando de maestra. Pero cuan-
do me contrataron, yo por mi
propia cuenta todos los fines
de semana empec6 aprender
a filmar y aprender los gajes
del oficio. Ensefiaba durante
el dia y trabajaba en la noche
para el canal", cuenta Santos.
Santos continue con su
carrera trabajando como re-
portera y editor de textos
para el peri6dico. Orlando Sen-
tinel, por casi ocho afios hasta
que se fue a trabajar como
vicepresidente de mercadeo
en un hospital de la zona y a
la vez abri6 su propia agencia
de relaciones p-iblicas.
Despu6s de tres afios,
.Santos regres6 a los medios
de comunicaci6n como direc-
tora de noticias de WVEN,
canal de Univisi6n en Or-
lando.
"Me pidieron que abriera la
estaci6n en Orlando. AdemAs
de ser la director de noti-
cias, estaba encargada de
todo el manejo de la estaci6n.
Traje a los primeros clients,
a los empleados e hice que
aquella estaci6n se levanta-
ra", dice Santos.

como director de noticias, se

DE LOS MEJORES DE LA NATION

El Hospital University Community ha sido objeto de
cambios muy significativos-la construcci6n de
nuevas instalaciones, la implementaci6n de nuevos
programs y hemos puesto gran 4nfasis en el
mejoramiento de la calidad del cuidado y el servido
personal que brindamos. Uno de'nuestros logros al
realizar este esfuerzo: el Hospital University
Community ha ingresado a la l6ite de los hospitals
de la naci6n al obtener una puntuaci6n de 97 sobre
100 en la redente Encuesta de Acreditaci6n realizada
por la Comisi6n de Acreditaci6n Conjunta para
Organizaciones de la Salud (CAHO). Esta
Spuntuaci6n es la m&s alta que haya'obtenido hasta el
presence algidn hospital de Tampa y coloca al
Hospital University Community en la list del 10%
de los mejores entire todos los hospitals de la naci6n
sometidos a la encuesta por la Comisi6n Conjunta.
La JCAHO es la organizaci6n mAs important y de
mayor antigiedad y credibilidad del pais, en lo que
se refiere al cuidado de la salud. Durante mt s de 50
Safos, esta organizaci6n ha desarrollado estrictas
normal de excelencia y ha evaluado a las
organizadones .dedicadas a la salud, por el
cumplimiento de estos parametros al acatar dichas
normas.
El haber recibido esta puntuaci6n ha sido un logro
significativo, ya que el mismo es un reconocimiento
al desempefio ejemplar de nuestro equipode
profesionales de la medicine, por su dedicadc6n a
brindarle el mejor servido de salud a toda la region
de la Bahfa de Tampa. Nos sentimos muy orgullosos
: de poder compartir estos resultados con todos
ustedes y de haber ganado El Sello de-Oro de

dio cuenta que era este tipo
de trabajo el que realmente
le gustaba.
"Me gust6 desde un princi-
pio la administraci6n y el
mercadeo. Sabia que queria
trabajar en gerencia mis que
nada porque eso me da la
oportunidad de moldear mi
propia creaci6n convirti6ndola
en la mejor de todas. Tenia
una meta y la he logrado, pero
aun existen various retos para
sobrepasar", dice Santos.
Para la suerte de Santos el
duefio de Telemundo decidi6
abrir una estaci6n en Or-
lando. El duefio estaba bus-
cando a una persona para que
manejara la estaci6n ya
menudo escuchaba el nombre
de Santos.
La buena reputaci6n que
ella se habia creado por su
ardua labor en el canal de
Univisi6n y el hecho de que
era periodista y no solamente
la administradora, hizo que
fuera contratada para llevar a
cabo esta empresa.
Desde el 1996 hasta ahora,
Santos ha enfocado todos sus
esfuerzos para former la
estaci6n WTMO-TV40. La
estaci6n que ahora se ve en
cable, cubre ocho condados:
Orange, Seminole, Osceola,
Marion, y Velusha entire
otros. Transmiten su noticie-
ro en espafiol todas las tar-
des, pero contratan a una
compafiia para que les pro-
'duzca el segment noticioso;
y eso es uno de los various
retos que Santos quiere
sobrepasar.
"La estaci6n cada dia esta
Una de mis metas para el afio
entrante es la de tener mi
propio equipo de noticias para
Ilevar a cabo el segment
noticioso. Cuando lo tenga-
mos todo list mi meta es
convertirnos en el mejor
noticiero en espafiol del
estado", dice Santos.
Santos tambi6n produce y
es anfitriona del reconocido
program, "Entre Nos", ante-
riormente lamado "Comuni-
dad 2000". El mismo, que lo
fund hace tres afios, presen-
ta temas de interns cultural,
medicinal y social en espafiol
para la comunidad latina.
AdemAs de su trabajo en el
canal y en el program, San-
tos, con el poco tiempo que
le sobra, disfruta hacienda
ejercicio, leyendo, y yendo a
misa todos los dias.
Ella es neocristiana del
Opus Dei. El Opus fue funda-
do por San Jose Maria Escriva
de Balaguer, quien escribi6 el
libro, "Caminos", el cual Ileva
cuatro millones de ejemplares
vendidos.
Las eisefianzas de esta
rama del catolicismo, que
surgi6 durante los anios 50's
y estA proliferandose con rapi-
dez al parecer entire la gente
de la clase alta, son de ofre-
cer tus esfuerzos y trabajo a
Dios. Santos, cree fervien-
temente en esto tal vez es por
eso que ella trabaja sin
descanso pars legar a la cima
de su carrera.
"Hace seis meses me invo-

a dar, a trabajar para Dios y
eso para mi es muy impor-
tante", dice Santos.
Su agenda Uena de citas,
mantiene a Santos ocupada
todo los dias.


Laura Santos es sin duda
una mujer tenaz, incansable
trabajadora que merece su
6xito y su sitial como pionera
de las comunicaciones en
espafiol de la Florida.


El Tiempo Pareciera No Pasar


Armando y Christina Yzquierdo se casaron hace 64 afios

LA GACETA/Viernes, 25 de julio de 2003/Pigina 3








Se Nos Fue

Una Estrella
Por: Arturo R. Rivera
Hoy hacemos un alto en
nuestro acostumbrado tema
politico, para hacerle un humil-
de reconocimiento a un ser ex-
traordinario, que alegr6 la vida
de millones. Celia Cruz, "La
Guarachera de Cuba" es la per-
sona que nos ha dejado ya.
Para todos aquellos que
crecimos oy6ndola y vi6ndola,
su ausencia en la misica tropi-
cal represent un vacio enor-
me. No podemos recorder un
s6lo instant desde nuestra
nifiez a estos afios de madurez
sin que presenciaramos a una
Celia Cruz sonriente, content,
lena de energi positive, que
contagiaba y hacia olvidar las
penas y las angustias del diario
vivir.
Como muy bien sefialaba
ella, "mi prop6sito en cada
espectAculo era traer alegria y
postivismo, para que la gente
se olvidara de la tristeza, ya
que en esta vida no habia total
felicidad..." Asi, con esas pa-
labras ella cumpli6 su misi6n
en este mundo, propaganda su
arte y su misica en todos los
rincones del planet, inclu-
yendo Africa, Europa, America
y Asia.
La musica cubana la llev6
como una embajadora de su
querida patria, dando a
conocer la cultural y forma de
ser del cubano, alegre,
extrovertido, con esa chispe
inconfundible del Caribe.
Asi logr6 el cariflo y la
aceptaci6n de todo el pfiblico.
Porque si bien lleg6 alto a la
cima de la fama international,
asi de humilde siempre fue. En
ella no habian ni los escin-
dalos, ni las infulas de algunos
artists, que a falta de talent
llaman la atenci6n de otra
forma.
La risa inconfundible de
Celia, sus chistes y su alegria
de vivir contagiosa la extra-
fiaremos, especialmente aque-
1los que tuvimos la oportu-
nidad de crecer con su mfisica.
Celia Cruz siempre fue amiga
de todo el mundo y recuerdo
con profunda emoci6n a Tito
Puente en el timbal y a Celia
con su voz ilenando de energia
caribefia los lugares en que se
presentaban.
Tal vez, una de sus i~ tima
melodia, "La Vida es un Car-
naval", ejemplifica la vida que
Celia llev6 y el mensaje de
positivismo. Aquel grito incon-
fundible, "Azucar", se nos fue,
pero su legado musical perdu-
rart en sus discos. No habr&
tirano actual o future que pue-
da borrar u opacar la esterlla
luminosa de Celia Cruz.

Julio: Mes de Albacea Hist6rico y Cultural


Por: Marta Mul6n Romero
No cabe duda que Julio
cuenta con ese dor, con ese
privilegio desde sus comienzos
hasta sus dias fronterizos con
agosto, donde ya cesa un poco
el fervor candente de un pa-
sado lleno de efemnrides y re-
latos impresionantes.
A toda tregua nos prepare de
nuevo para asistir a otro desfile
hispano, plet6rico de emociones
trascendentales, donde de nue-
vo Am6rica Hispana remontaen
brioso corcel y arremete con
brillantesjirones hist6ricos, con
pinceladas literarias dignas de
ser recortadas eternamente.
En mis recuerdos una deuda
a largo plazo que siempre ten-
dr6 con mi tierra hermana, don-
de recibi calor, acogida y am-
paro en horas tristes, amargas
y dolorosas, en las que fni-
camente una fe inquebrantable
en ese Supremo Dios, juezjus-
ticiero, nos hacia esperar y ver
llegar tiempos mejores...
Para ti, Puerto Rico, en este
25 de julio del 2003, recor-
dando aquel 25 de julio de
1952, que al igual que el de este
afio fue viernes, repito, recor-
dando la inauguraci6n del
Estado Libre Asociado.
Tomemos un camino angos-
to bordeando desfiladeros don-
de la inmensa floresta virgen
ain en muchos recobecos de
natural y desde all&, "tierra
adentro", recordemos a la in-
mensa Lola, al poeta de Puerto
Rico, Luis LLor6ns Torres


(1876-1944), a un Francisco
Gonzalo Marnn (Pachin) (1863-
1897); un Manuel A. Alonso
(1822-1889), Jos6 G. Padilla,
"El Caribe" (1829-1896).
El Caribe con su "Canto a
Puerto Rico" aport6 uno de los
testimonies mas altos a la
patria, hecho por los poetas del
siglo XIX. Su vision panoramica
de la isla y el mar que la rodean,
asi como sus habitantes
indigenas y el rico esplendor de
su vegetaci6n, aunque qued6

inconclusa en el moment de
su muerte, constitute la lirica
de mayor empefio y de mAs
ambicioso alcance...
"Ved el abra, que forma la
cadena/ de dos montes geme-
los el vacio, c6mo la plant y
las paredes l1ena/ de largas ho-
jas y verdor sombrio,/ Son del
plitano,-que alza la melena/ en
pabell6n de rdstico atavio, so-
bre un trono a que artist la na-
tura/ sin lefio, ni corteza de
estructura. Firma, "El Caribe".
"Y hasta que libre Puerto
Rico sea/ o el fuego herviente
mi heredad consuma,/ por un
fusil detestar la idea,/ por un
machete, olvidar6 la pluma."
Firma, Pachin Marin.
"Mata de Platano"
Mata de plAtano a ti/ a ti te
debo la mancha/ que ni el
jab6n, ni la plancha/ quitan de
encima de mi./ Desque jibaro
naci/ al aire llevo el tesoro/ de
tu acimo de oro/ y tu hoja
verde y ancha;/ 11evar6 siempre
la mancha por secula


seculoruml
"A Cuba"
Cuba, Cuba, a tu ribera/ lle-
ga triste y desolada/ al dejar la
patria amada/ donde vi la luz
primera/ yo cantar6 en estos
montes/ como cantaba en mi
tierra/ Cubay Puerto Rico son/
de un pajaro las dos alas,/
recibes flores o balas/ sobre el
mismo coraz6n. Lola Rodriguez
de Ti6.
"Madrigal" composici6n
po6tica casi siempre corta pero
galante y delicada, no podia
faltar en este recuento amoroso
que le hacemos a la Isla del
Encanto. Asi mismo, Jose
Polonio Hemrndez (1892-1922)
cono-cido por el seud6nimo de
(Peache Hemrndez) titul6 su
famosa lirica considerada como
caso finico en la literature
puertorriquefia, veamosla:
Madrigal (Peache Hernndez)
Si Dios un dia/ cegara toda
fuente de luz/ el universe se
alumbraria/ con esos ojos que
tienes tf/ pero leno de agrios
enojos/ por tal blasfemia, tus
lindos ojos/ Dios te arrancase,/
para que el mundo con la
alborada/ de tus pupilas no te
alumbrase; aunque quisiera,
Dios no podia tender la Noche
sobre la Nada... /porque aim
el mundo se alumbraria icon el
recuerdo de tu miradal
De esta manera, hago just
y merecido reconocimiento a
otro 25 dejulio en la conciencia
recuerdo y amor de los puer-
torriquefios por su patria.

El deported al dia
Por Harvey Grajales


(viene de la pdgina 1)
en su division seran algunos
aspects a veneer.
LOS QUE LLEGAN...
A pesar de jugar bien en el
Super Bowl, el corredor
Michael Pittman fue una gran
decepci6n en su primer afio
con los Bucs -ademis de que
es uno de los jugadores de
Tampa Bay que se meti6 en
series aprietos con la ley en
este receso. Asi que Tampa
hizo un cambio por Thomas
Jones de los Cardinals. Jones
fue la s6ptima selecci6n del
draft de 2000, pero no pudo
veneer a Pittman mientras
fueron compafieros en Arizona
y ha estado lleno de lesiones.
Quizds el cambio de
scenario le ayude. Los Bucs
afiadieron al veteran corridor
Terry Kirby como una
potential tercer arma. En la
defense, el linebacker del lado
fuerte Al Singleton firm con
los Cowboys, pero Tampa
mejor6 la posici6n con la firm
de Dwayne Rudd, ex de los
Browns. Y la segunda
selecci6n DeWayne White,
liniero defensive de Louisville,
es un especialista en poner
presi6n al pasador que podria
ver acci6n de inmediato.
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
esquinero Dwight Smith
trabaj6 en esa posici6n en el
minicamp y ya pertenece al
equipo.
El ataque, tiene como prin-
cipal 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 este afio -si
la line se mantiene saludable.
En el papel, Tampa Bay
parece candidate a repetir -
bueno, a excepci6n de los pro-
blemas de pretemporada.
Pittman, Smith y el tackle
ofensivo Kenyatta Walker
fueron arrestados en los fil-
timos meses. Los Bucs nece-
sitan evitar estos desaguisados
en el future.
Esto sobretodo en una
mejorada NFC Sur. Los cuatro
equipos de esta division tienen
ms .victorias (37) que cual-
quier otra en la liga. Carolina
ha mejorado su defense y su
ataque; Michael Vick debe
mejorar afn mas en Atlanta;
y New Orleans es un conten-
diente de playoffs que venci6 a
los Bucs dos veces la campafia
anterior. Tampa Bay enfrenta
un reto dificil -pero tiene el
talent y los entrenadores para
superarlo.
JONES JR.PELEARA
CONTRA TYSON
El campe6n mundial de los
pesados version Asociaci6n
Mundial de Boxeo, Roy Jones
hijo, pelearia con Mike Tyson
o Lennox Lewis en los
pr6ximos meses.
Promotores en Nairobi
anunciaron el martes que
Jones defenderA su corona en
el Moi International Stadium,
con capacidad para 60.000
espectadores. Pero ni Jones ni
su ayudante Linda Padgett
dijeron estar enterados de que


el combat estaba programado.
Jones (48-1) es el primer
pigil en mas de 100 en afios
en subir de la categoria
median, en la que rein6, a la
de los pesos completes, en la
que derrot6 a John Ruiz a
principios de afio por el titulo
de la AMB.
Lewis, campe6n del Consejo,
dijo semanas atrds que
evaluaba varias posibilidades,
una de ellas la pelea con Jones.
Pero es mas probable que otor-
gue la revancha en diciembre
a Vitali Klitshcko, que estaba
venciendo a Lewis el mes
pasado cuando la pelea fue
detenida en el sexto asalto
debido a heridas.
Tyson noque6 a Clifford
Etienne en el primer round en
febrero y no ha peleado desde
entonces.

ARAMBULET RETUVO
EN JAP6N
El venezolano Noel Aram-
bulet retuvo su titulo del peso
minimo de la Asociaci6n
Mundial de Boxeo (AMB) al
derrotar por puntos, en decision
dividida, al japon6s Yutaka
Niida, el sibado por la noche
en la arena Pacifico Yokohama
de la ciudad hom6nima.
De esta forma, Arambulet
consigui6 su s6ptima victoria
consecutive, totalizando un
registro de 20 victorias (10 an-
tes del limited un empate, dos
derrotas y una sin decision.
En pelea semi-estelar, la
sensaci6n venezolana Jorge
'Golden Boy" Linares, de 17
afios, consigui6 una nueva y
spectacular victoria, al
noquear en tres asaltos a
Thunder Ito (9-4-3, 2 KO), en
el peso sfipergallo. Linares,
radicado en Jap6n y a las
6rdenes del influyente promo-
tor local Akihiko Honda desde
el afio pasado, Ilego asi a su
quinta victoria y sigue sin
conocer la derrota.


Jorge Posada de los Yankees de Nueva York sale
sonriente al diamante, precedido de su hijo de 3
afiitos, Jorge IV, en el gran juego de todas las
estrellas ocurrido la semana pasada en Chicago. Al
pequeio Jorge se le habia prohibido salir al campo
de acuerdo con la absurda norma conocida como
Darren Baker Rule, que prohibe a menores de 14
afios estar en el campo durante unjuego de bsisbol.
Posada decidi6 desafiar la regla y aparentemente
triunf6.

Menchu y la dirigente de derechos humans Helen
Mack, convocaron el martes en un comunicado a
realizar "el cierre, simb6lico de la CC pues con la

Bucs Practice

Facility Update
The Bucs' new practice fa-
cility and administration
building is currently slated to
begin construction in April
2004 and be complete by the
following football season, ac-
cording to Tampa Sports Au-
thority (TSA) officials, although
some officials remain doubtful
that it will be complete by then.
According to TSA officials,
the 200,000 square foot, two-
or three-story building will
hold executive, marketing and
ticketing offices and two or
three practice fields will be lo-
cated just south of the building.


TSA officials said the project
will cost around $25 $35 mil-
lion, with $12 million coming
from public funds from the
county's Community Invest-
ment Tax and the team cover-
ing the remaining funds. The
TSA said they would hold the
title to the complex.
Requests for qualifications
from developers will begin in
September 2003 and a devel-
oper will be chosen around
February or March of 2004.

The Punisher feature film is
making an impression in Tampa,
where it will be filmed, 'but, so
far, our impression is negative.
We have had two dealings
with the production company. In
one we. were used. During the
other we were lied to.
Two weeks ago, four men from
The Punisher came to our office
to lease 10,000 square feet of
warehouse space for three
months for storing and repairing
cars to be used in the movie. We
quickly agreed on a price and
terms. The deal was closed with
a handshake and a promise. Ar-
rangements were made to pro-
vide them with a lease agree-
ment the next day. They needed
the space immediately, but had
to send the lease to lawyers in
California to have the wording
approved. So the handshake
would have to suffice for a few

days since they needed the keys.
to start moving in.
The next day the lease was
typed but we could not contact
the men. The day after a message
was left at our office that they
would not be renting the space.
Two weeks and several calls later
our keys have still not been re-
turned.
Our second experience with
The Punisher happened over the
weekend. My 13-year-old daugh-
ter Emily wanted to go to the
highly publicized casting call for
extras for The Punisher at the
Florida Aquarium. The press re-
lease said they were looking for
2,000 extras. We got there at
noon and patiently waited with
6,000 other people for two and
one-half hours in the blazing
Florida sun. We made it inside
and handed in her application.
We were then herded into a
room to listen to an orientation.
Some of the first words out of the
casting agent's mouth were that
The Punisher was not looking for
minor children for extras.
There was no word of this in
the media announcement. If so,
the line would have been short-
ened by at least 1,000 people,
some of them babies. The only
reason for the oversight in not
disseminating this information
early was that this casting call
had nothing to do with casting
and everything to do with pro-
motion. They wanted as big a
crowd as possible to create ex-
citement for the movie. The wait
wasn't necessary for anyone
since it was revealed to the
crowd when they got near the
front of the line that they could
mail their application in.
We have taken all the pun-
ishment we care to from The
Punisher.
****
Some did profit from The
Punisher's casting call. The Port
Authority scored $4,000 more
than normal from parking fees at
its Channelside parking garage.
The Aquarium received no rent
from The Punisher for use of the
facilities, but did benefit from
$1,500 in additional parking rev-
enue, the sale of 2,000 bottles of
water and a load of publicity.

Why is the high cost of medi-
cal malpractice insurance in
Florida being called a "crisis"
and deserving of three special
sessions of the Florida Legisla-
ture with more promised?
The "crisis" has nothing to do
with medical malpractice. In fact,
there is no "crisis." The urgency
and focus is being driven by
President George W. Bush. He
made statements that have given
clarity to the issue. He wants to
punish trial lawyers for being the
chief donors to Democrats. His
push is to hurt their income by
capping the awards for medi-
cal malpractice and other
types of lawsuits. This fight
over placing a $250,000 cap on-
pain and suffering awards in
Florida is being repeated in
many states due to President
Bush's encouragement.
Recent testimony given under
oath in Tallahassee disproves
the previous facts given by sup-
porters of the cap that insurance
rates would go down if the cap
were initiated.
The cry by our governor that
Florida is in a "crisis" because
doctors are leaving the state and
emergency rooms are closing due
to the high rates of medical mal-
practice insurance is also a myth.
More doctors are practicing to-
day than five years ago and the
number coming out of medical
schools are on the increase.
There also appears to be no
reliable evidence that lawsuits
and jury awards are on the in-
crease or that this is the cause of
high insurance rates.
The only apparent reason for
the "crisis" is that insurance com-
panies have raised rates. This
"crisis" affects homeowners in-
surance, automobile insurance
and health insurance, as well as
malpractice insurance. Florida's
"crisis" is across the board when
it comes to insurance and the
answer to the problem is the
same: Florida needs to cap insur-
ance rate increases for policy-
holders with few or no claims.
The Florida Senate, under the
leadership of Senator Tom Lee,
has realized this "crisis" is ar-
tificial and has determined to
use common sense in addressing
medical malpractice. The gover-
nor is committed to his mission
of punishing lawyers. It appears
neither side is willing to adopt
the other's position. Because of
this, we predict no medical mal-
practice reform will take place
this year.

Last week, County Commis-
sioner Ronda Storms accused
County Commissioner Pat Frank
of requesting that County Attor-
ney Emmy Acton retrieve the
court file on Assistant .County
Administrator Ed Hunzeker's
divorce and that Frank looked at
that file.
Pat Frank denied the charges
and a letter by Emmy Acton vin-
dicates Frank.
Acton's letter states that she
received allegations that Mr.
Hunzeker was having an inap-
propriate relationship with a
subordinate and that this sub-
ordinate was receiving pref-
erential treatment. Acton says


she pulled the divorce file and
looked over salary records to de-
termine if there was merit to the
allegations.
Her letter also stated, "No
Commissioner ... ever asked to
see the file nor was my copy of
the file distributed to anyone
outside the office."
The county attorney acted
properly in requesting the file as
part of her investigation.
Commissioner Frank has had
a long political career that has
earned her a reputation as being
an honest, informed and diligent
public servant. We have confi-
dence that Frank would not stain
her reputation with such a petty
and inappropriate action alleged
by Storms. Acton's letter serves
to verify what we already knew.

Raves occur in Downtown
Tampa, Brandon, North Hills-

writer say Ybor City fits the pro-
file? The writer also indiscrimi-
nately accuses all Ybor City clubs
as places where drugs are sold
and used, which is unfair and un-
true.
Articles like this, which are
short on facts and based on a

ceptions, contribute to the myth
that Ybor City is unsafe.

President George W. Bush
represents a political party that
says it is for smaller govern-
ment, fewer taxes and is fiscally
conservative. Yet, in spite of this
rhetoric, his administration is
now responsible for the largest
budget deficit ever, $455 billion,
and has grown the national debt
to historic highs. His current
policies of reducing revenues,
growing government and in-
creased spending are likely to
cause accumulated deficits of $4
trillion over the next 10 years.
What is fiscally conservative
about this? Where are the believ-
ers in the Republican platform
and why haven't they disowned
this president that has violated
their core beliefs?
The GOP and President Bush
continue to label Democrats as
tax and spenders, but is borrow-
ing and spending a better prac-
tice? At least Democrats are be-
ing intellectually honesty when
they fight against radical tax cuts
because they understand the
growing cost of government. In-
tellect and honesty are two
words that cannot be used to de-
scribe President Bush and his fis-
cal policies.

EOn the Other Hand

by Lee Drury De Cesare



Pandarus Mons Jim


Pimps prey on women through
the ages. Their literary history
starts with Chaucer's Troilus
and Criseyde and continues
with Shakespeare's Troilus
and Cresida. Dryden's seven-
teenth-century formula de-
fines a pimp's purpose: "to pro-
cure women for the gratifica-
tion of others'lusts; to pander."
Local pimp extraordinaire is
Mr. Joe Redner. He named his
lap-dancing emporium Mons
Venus, reducing women to
their pudenda in harmony
with Freud's male-defined bi-
nary role in The Most Prevalent
Form ofDegradation in Sexual
Life: Madonna or whore.
A bunch of us Madonnas at-
tended the Caton-Redner Tiger
Bay nudity debate. Whether we
want to be Madonnas matters
not. Whore or Madonna is our
role by patriarchal fiat. Most
women would like to be a little
of both as complete human
beings. But guys set the formula
in stone when we were picking
fleas off each other in prehis-
toric caves and resist change.
Pimp Redner is a multi-mil-
lionaire says the Weekly
Planet He made his millions
off women's bodies. He could
drive a luxury Pimpmobile as
do most pimps because he
keeps a stable of sex workers
to pay for it. He evidently
doesn't spend his whore-begot
money on clothes. He dresses
execrably. Mons Redner is an
unprepossessing man short in
stature and short on social
elan. When I challenged him
after the debate, he barked
that I needed therapy.
Now is that any way to talk
to an aged Madonna- mother
of four, grandmother of 10,
lifetime practitioner of unre-
mitting extra-virgin virtue -


even by Dr. Mons Joe, who re-
ceived his clinical training as
matriculant of Vienna's intel-
lectually rigorous Psychiatric
Lap dancing Go-go Institute of
Pimpery and Pandering?
Chaucer's Pandarus would not
speak cavalierly to a Madonna;
neither would Shakespeare's.
Mr. Redner's loutish conversa-
tional skills show the standard
for pimps has plummeted.
The Weekly Planet pictures
Mons Redner smirking in
dirty-old-man grimace be-
tween two painfully young
women in topless dishabille.
One half-wears shorts open to
the crotch. Mons Redner's arm
encircles her in proprietary
dominance, hand grasping her
hip. He flings another arm
across the body of the second
young woman. A table merci-
fully hides his hand's location.
These young women are not
human beings. They are Mons
Redner's merchandise.
Nazis knew that depriving
people of clothes robs them of
humanity. That's why they
stripped Jews before sending
them in boxcars to the ovens
of Auswitz.
In our exchange, Le Redner
calls the women "my girls." He
leers when he says women
have used sex as currency
since the beginning of time. He
doesn't add that so have pimps
to make money off women's
bodies. He tells the Tiger Bay
audience that his "girls" make
more money than anybody in
the room. He fails to admit that
he appropriates the lion's
share from their sex labor.
It is a species of feeble sex
we are talking about. Lap-
dancer customers are men
whose sexuality does not burn
robustly enough for genital


encounters with unbought
women. These sexual cripples
pay for simulated sex with lap
dancers whom Pandarus
Redner procures.
Mons Redner courts re-
spectability by posing as First
Amendment crusader. He apes
erudition by memorizing court
cases in which pornography
squeaks through as free
speech. He preaches sexual re-
pression blights the liver and
causes all social ills. He is too
ignorant to know that Freud
said sublimation of sex pro-
duced civilization. Mons
Redner doesn't want civiliza-
tion; he wants degradation. He
wants us all to act like hogs at
his sexual trough.
The covert message of Mons
Redner's faux erudition is that
Tampa would reach cultural
apogee were women to run
naked in the streets-for we
are talking only female nudity
here and make themselves
available for sex up and down
Dale Mabry and even on Davis
Island's Causeway. Redner
would pimp village orgies and
man the cash register, of course.
Mons Redner's soi-disant rev-
erence for the First Amend-
ment bespeaks nothing but
protecting a marketing tool to
rake in even more pimp cash.
Redner told me his "girls"
were grateful he provided them
an environment in which they
felt"valued." He said they came
from toxic backgrounds in
which parents rejected and
abused them.
Pimp Redner continues the
abuse. Sexual abuse has a se-
ductive familiarity for these
women. All psychological stud-
ies show sex workers are dam-
aged people, the majority hav-
ing endured childhood sexual

abuse. They lack the education
and self-esteem to resist fall-
ing into the hands.of exploitive
pimps like Redner.
Questioners accused Mr.
Caton of acting out his sexual
repression. Nobody challenged
Mr. Redner about his psycho-
sexual problems. Pimps are
voyeurs. Mr. Redner. should
stretch out on some
psychiatrist's couch to learn
what psychic wound vicarious
sex soothes for him in his Mons
Venus play pen for the sexu-
ally retarded.
The audience tittered at Mr.
Redner's boorish sexual innur
endos. Only people inhabiting
a puritanical nation of right-
wing Cotton Mathers would tit-
ter. Europeans don't snicker at
the mention of sex. They are
grownups in erotic matters. We
Americans are not. The audi-
ence squirmed only when
Mons Redner dwelt on a
study claiming frequent
masturbation fends off pros-
tate cancer- "by keeping the
ducts cleaned out" How salu-
tary. How elegant.
I spoke also to Mr. Caton.
He suffers whacked-out thinking
on sin but is otherwise agree-
able. The fellow is handsome.
His manners are impeccable.


He dresses like a gentleman.
Bart Birdsal, of the schools'
Bullying Committee, and I in-
quired about his attitude to-
ward protecting gay children
from harassment. He is for it.
He said school bullies called
his son "gay" and that the prin-
cipal punished them. That in-
formation told Bart and me
that craven School Board
members who won't protect
gay children from abuse have
nothing to fear from Mr. Caton.
Garfield winner Mike
Comins asked if people had the
right to a pornography-free
environment. Mr. Redner
wrapped himself in the First
Amendment and said, in es-
sence, that freedom from por-
nography for society can't cut
into his pandering racket.
Mr. Redner's Constitutional
rights give him cover to live off
women's bodies in the ancient
and contemptible role. of pimp
while parroting First-Amend-
ment pieties. But the First
Amendment's shielding his
seedy sex trade doesn't mean
the community must accept it
as wholesome or admirable. It
doesn't. In the voting booth,
citizens unfailingly turn down
.this resident Pandarus for elec-
tive office.

CORPORATE CHATTER









Thovghts of the Week
By: Fortune Bosco


Itwas March 12, 1996 when
Krispy Kreme burned to the
ground. Paul Wilborn, a re-
porter for the St. Petersburg
Tines, was on the premises and
showed me his regrets for hav-
ing lost my home away from
home. A few days later, Paul
moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan,
where he had been offered a
fellowship in journalism.
He was very happy in the
intellectual atmosphere. He
had inherited from his father,
Red Wilbor, a principal of Vo-
cational Schools in Tampa, the
love for educational pursuit.
While studying, he met a Ger-
man student named Cecil and
love took him to Berlin, Ger-
many. Unfortunately, Cecil
was too possessive and he felt
like a 'krieg genfangen" and
sought his freedom. He flew
back to the United States and
settled in Los Angeles, where
he wrote three movie scripts
and ultimately was employed
by the Associated Press due to
his outstanding credentials.
He occasionally visited his
brother Steven, who was a
singer with a Catholic group
giving concerts nationally.
In Los Angeles, Cupid
struck again and he fell in love
with a statuesque young ac-


tress named Eugenie, which in
Greek means wellborn. Can
you imagine having a six foot
one inch beauty named Well-
born Wilborn?
Paul and Eugenie plan to
get married in April of next year
in New Orleans. Meanwhile,
they have purchased a home
and are making plans for the
wedding. Presently, Paul is liv-
ing with his mother Louise
Capitano Wilborn, who gave
him the Italian love for beauty
and music. Paul is busy in his
job as chief of cultural events
in Tampa. Since he was in his
twenties, he has known Mayor
Pam Iorip with whom he shares
his vision for the future ofTampa.
We are confident that the
mayor has chosen the right
man for the job. We expect
great things from Mr. Wilborn.

I spent a few hours at Me-
morial Hospital undergoing
medical tests. I was pleasantly
surprised noticing the great
expansion that the facilities
have undergone. There was
cleanliness and efficiency ev-
erywhere. In Radiology, Gary
Koch excelled with his kind-
ness and care.
Memorial Hospital left good
memories with this writer.


MY VIEWPOINT
By John T. Spera


The Judeo Christian Health Clinic
"Politics and the pulpit are terms that have little agreement. No sound ought to be
heard in the church but the healing voice of Christian charity." Edmund Burke


Aside from the 40 million
Americans who don't have
health insurance, where are
the other poor Americans who
are too poor to have any insur-
ance or income to pay for their
families' medical treatment
going for help? They go to the
Judeo Christian Health Clinic
at 4120 1/2 North MacDill
Avenue inTampa... that's where
These are the very poor!
These people work very hard
to make ends meet, yet they
cannot afford the needed medi-
cal attention.
This country spends more
than any other country in
health, yet American citizens
are dying from the lack of es-
sential medical treatment.
"It is a national tragedy and
disgrace that the marvelous
advances in the diagnosis and
treatment of disease are not
available to so many of our
poor. Our heathcare costs are
excessive and medical care is
in a shambles despite excellent
facilities and skilled healthcare
providers," said W. Jape Tay-


lor, a distinguished service pro-
fessor emeritus of medicine at
the University of Florida. "In
2000, 18,300 Americans be-
tween the ages of 25 64 died
due to lack of health insur-
ance, according to a survey by
the Institute of Medicine. Com-
parison with other developed
countries reveal that we ran
about 20th in rates of infant
mortality, life expectancy and
rates of immunization. Our
healthcare 'system' was
ranked 37th in the world by
the WHO (World Health Orga-
nization) in 2000. These data
indicate that we do not get full
value for what we pay. Most
healthcare expenditures that
are not applied directly to pa-
tient care are relatively easy to
trace. Profit and administrative
costs, for instance, account for
25 to 30 percent."
Out of 191 countries,
France was judged to have the
best healthcare service in the
world by WHO.

of St. John Presbyterian
Church when he had an un-
fulfilled dream of providing
healthcare to those in our com-
munity who did not have the
means to pay for such services
and did not qualify under our
welfare programs.
In March 1972, the clinic
began in a Sunday school on
a one night per week basis.
There was one physician, one
nurse and a few lay people, all
volunteers with one purpose in
mind to render medical ser-
vice to the less fortunate.
Within a few weeks, the clinic
was swamped with people in
.need of medical care. More pro-
fessionals and lay volunteers
were recruited to keep up with
the demand, while Reverend
Jim Holmes begged, borrowed
or "stole" to obtain the equip-
ment needed. When I was a
pharmacist volunteer, I dis-
pensed drugs out of a "hole in
a wall" and Esther, a nurse (my
wife), assisted only a few phy-
sicians.
The clinic now operates
seven medical clinics, two den-
tal clinics and one eye clinic
weekly. Treatment of asthma,
allergies, dermatology, gyne-
cology and podiatry are of-
fered and a pediatric clinic
proffers care to children up to
16 years old.
A truly ecumenical.board of
directors representing Jewish,
Catholic and Protestant faiths
work directing clinic policy.
Bea Dreier, executive director,
coordinates the operation of
the clinic.
It is amazing how the Rev-
erend Holmes dream became
reality, because the clinic does
not receive government subsi-
dies or-United Way funding, yet
is still capable of reaching
those who over and over again
fall through the cracks of in-
stitutionalcare. The clinic re-
lies solely on donations and
grants from individuals and
organizations! The clinic would
not exist solely from these con-
tributions if it were not for the
literally hundreds of compe-
tent healthcare professionals
who unselfishly donate their
valuable time, including phy-
sicians, dentists, optometrists,
pharmacists, opticians,
nurses, nurse- practitioners
and administrative volunteers.
In addition, the local hospitals
offer charitable hospital care
and access to laboratory work,
which includes radiology, X-
rays, MRIs and other diagnos-
tic procedures.
The clinic truly lives up its
mission statement: "In the be-
lief that we should do justly,
love mercy, and walk humbly
with our God, The Judeo
Christian Health Clinic pro-
vides free, quality, .timely and
compassionate healthcare to
medically indigent residents of
the Tampa Bay area who have
no other resources for their
healthcare needs."
The Judeo Christian Health
Clinic has grown to become
the largest and most wide-
ranging free medical facility in
the southeast!
The clinic has received
manyawards. OnApril11, 1989,
President George Bush pre-
sented the clinic with the 1989
President's Volunteer Ac-
tion Award in recognition of
its hard work to deliver
'free healthcare to the medi-
cally indigent

by Paul Guzzo


Sometimes, mother knows
best.
As a child, Julia Rettig's
mother told her that all a per-
son needs in life to be happy
is a good family. Rettig couldn't
have disagreed more, thinking
she could never
be happy unless
she was a high-
ranking executive
in the business
world.
Today, she is a .-S

tive vice presi-

ment for the com-
mercial real es-
tate firm Carter &

andpast presi-
dent of the Na- ;-
tional Association

Office Properties
(NAIOP), Tampa
Bay and Florida
chapters. But,
despite her suc- .
cess in the corpo- -
rate world, noth- :ii
ing brings Rettig ii
more happiness : -
than her family.
"I have three
beautiful children
and a wonderful
husband that will
always come
first," she said. "While
"My career is im- mother lo
portant, but my said,'In tl

ing my children. I
have to accom-
plish being a great parent
first, and a great professional
second.
"While recently visiting my
father's grave, my mother
looked around at all the tomb-
stones and said, In the end,
everyone's tombstone is the
same. The only legacy that re-
ally matters is that of your fam-
ily.' She's right."
Rettig's mother may have
been right when it comes to the
importance of family in one's
life, but when it comes to the
corporate world, Rettig has
spent her life working to prove
her mother's views wrong.
Rettig was born and raised
in New York, but both her par-
ents and her brother and sis-
ter were born in Cuba and
moved to New York in the early
1950's during the Cuban Revo-
lution.
"My parents were very tra-
ditional Cubans," said Rettig.
"Growing up, my house was
like being in Havana you
spoke Spanish, listened to
Cuban music and ate Cu-
ban food. There was very
little American influence
in my house.
"My parents were also very
old fashioned. My sister had a
chaperone with her on every
date throughout her child-
hood. But I was the little
American in the house, born
and raised in America. I had
different views. I told my par-
ents I wouldn't have a chaper-
one with me, I would be my
own woman. I constantly
fought to break free of the old
fashioned ways."
The most old fashioned view
she had to fight against was
that of women in the busi-
ness world. Rettig's mother
had a part time job cleaning
offices and would occasionally
take Rettig to work with her.
One evening, Rettig's
mother caught her sitting in
an executive's chair and
quickly told her to not get
comfortable because people
like them don't get those op-
portunities. But Rettig


couldn't have disagreed more.
"My parents came from a
different culture, where
women didn't aspire to be busi-
ness leaders. My parents were
just happy to be free, but I
wanted more. My mother told

me that I would be just as
happy working in a factory, but
I knew I that wouldn't be
enough to make me happy."
For as far back as she can
remember, Rettig said she was
the little entrepreneur of the
family. Her mother was also a
seamstress and would make.
dresses for women in the
neighborhood, but Rettig said
she would charge as little as
$400 for a dress she could eas-
ily have sold for a few thousand
dollars. When Rettig would tell
her mother that she could be
making more money, her
mother would dismiss the no-
tion and remind Rettig she was
just happy to have a job.
When it came time to go to
college, her parents accepted
that their daughter's American
views were different than
theirs, so supported her deci-
sion to go to college, but ap-
plying for college and finding
loans and scholarships was all
up to her. She was determined
to fulfill her dreams, though.
She graduated from Berkley
College with a degree in ac-
counting and quickly found
work in New York.
"It's funny, my brother got
encouraged to go to college, but
mine wasn't an upbringing
where I was encouraged to
study," said Rettig. "My par-
ents loved me and are my he-
roes to this day, but their up-
bringing was narrow compared
to that of Americans. They
didn't think it was a woman's
place to go to college and en-
ter the business world. When
I graduated, my mother was so
nervous. She. thought I was
going to be overwhelmed by it
all. But I knew I could accom-
plish anything."
Rettig worked for commer-
cial real estate and investment
Banking firms in New York for
a number of years and was liv-
ing out her dream of being a
businesswoman in the city,
but when her first marriage
ended, she decided she needed
to make a change.
She needed a fresh start in


life and wanted to leave New
York behind, so decided to
come to Tampa, where the
majority of her family lived.
"When my parents left Cuba
and went to New York, the rest
of my father's brothers and sis-
ters, nine in all,
went to Tampa.
So Tampa be-
came my second
home. As soon as
School let out for
.i, :I.' the summer, I
was on a plane
for Tampa. At the
end of the sum-
mer, I would cry
that I didn't want
to leave. I loved
being around my
family. In New
f York, we were all
alone. But in
Tampa, there
were over 60
family members.
I wanted to raise
my two children
around all these
family members
and influence my
kids with this
great family I
S E had, so moved to
Tampa perma-
nently."
Shortly after
moving to
Tampa, her fa-
rave m their grew ill and
grave, my was told he had
the same. to leave NewYork
at of your and get away
from the cold
winters, so he fol-
lowed Rettig to
Tampa. Suddenly, she had her
entire family around her and
couldn't have been happier.
She has since remarried
and has had a third child.
Despite her strong dedica-
tion to her family, Rettig has
also continued to lorge forward
with her career. She began her
career in Tampa in 1992 as the
director of leasing of ProLongis,
where she was responsible for
development, leasing and mar-
keting activities for over three
million feet of industrial space.
In 1995, she became vice presi-
dent for Liberty Property Trust
for Weeks Corporation, which
shortly thereafter merged to
become Duke-Weeks Realty
Corporation. And in 2001, she
joined Carter & Associates and
established the Development
Department. Her duties in-
clude working on grant appli-
cations, financing and leasing
of developments. Currently,
Carter & Associates is devel-
oping the University of South
Florida's Research Park.
Her experience in real es-
tate, combined with her work
with the NAIOP of Florida,
which is a national association
with over 10,000 members and
an extensive network of 48
chapters that represent the
interests of developers and
owners of industrial, office and
related commercial real estate
throughout North America,
makes her one of the most
successful women in Florida
in her field.
But, of course, all that suc-
cess is secondary to her. She
prefers to brag about her chil-
dren rather than her career. In
fact, she said her greatest ac-
complishment may be coach-
ing her daughter's all star
cheerleading team.
"My mother was right that
nothing makes you happier
than family, but I was right
that women can be successful
in the business world. I guess
that makes us even."
In the end, everyone's tomb-
stone may look the same, but
Rettig's legacy has just begun.

"Cuba Scuba" Author Amy Houghton
When most people think of Cuba, they think of poverty,
oppression and, of course, Communism. But 27-year-old
expert diver and Tampa resident Amy Houghton sees Cuba
in a different light; she sees a tropical paradise full of won-
derful people and culture, delicious food and dozens of at-
tractions for tourists to marvel over. And that is just above
ground. Below ground, Houghton has found a marine life so
breathtaking and colorful that few, if any, diving spots in the
world rival it.
Houghton is so taken with the culture and beauty of Cuba,
that she wrote the first comprehensive guide to scuba diving
in the waters off Cuba, "Cuba Scuba," which has been re-
leased nationally. The book, which is filled with colorful pho-
tographs of the island, maps out and gives detailed descrip-
tions of over 500 dive sites in 21 major Cuban diving regions,
explaining everything a diver needs to know about each site,
such as how far offshore and how deep to dive, shipwrecks
and marine life to see, how many divers can dive at each site,
dive prices and available transportation.
Don't let the name of the book fool you, though. It offers
much more than diving advice, but is a full tour guide for the
inexperienced tourist in Cuba, offering advice on the best
restaurants and lodging, Cuban phone numbers and cur-
rency, traveling weight limits, tourist attractions you can't
miss and items necessary for the trip.
But you thought traveling to Cuba was illegal for U.S. citi-
zens, right? According to Houghton, roughly 80,000 Ameri-
cans visit Cuba each year and her book goes into detail on
legal ways for U.S.. citizens to visit Cuba, as well as a few
illegal ways, which she does not recommend trying.
"Adventure and mystique first attracted me to Cuba," said
Houghton. "But a love for the Cuban people and pristine div-
ing has motivated me to return often. With the collabora-
tion and help from the Center for Marine Research of Ha-
vana, Puertosol, Marinas and Cubancan Nautica dive cen-
ters, I have scuba dived magnificent walls, ancient wrecks,
thrilling shark encounters, abundant schools of fish and
much more. I experienced a blended paradise of lavish seas
and rich culture where I created a guide for how you can dive
anywhere in Cuba."
Houghton has been diving since the age of 10 when she
and her father, William, who supplied photographs for the
book, became certified divers. Since then, the two have dived
all over the world, and Houghton says Cuba's waters are
among the most pristine. In fact, she is so taken with the
purity of Cuba's reefs, she is working to create a nonprofit
organization to protect the reefs.
"For me, diving in Cuba brings both passion and peace,"
she said. "It has made a profound impact on my life."

HUDDLE

BY TEDD WEBB


It's Been a Great Journey


It was early May of 1984
when the receptionist at WFLA
radio told me I had a phone call
from one of my childhood he-
roes, Roland Manteiga. "Wow,
what could Roland Manteiga
want with me?"
I called La Gaceta and lord
and behold he answered the
phone himself. "Canyou make
lunch tomorrow at Valencia
Garden?" I agreed and we set
the date for 11:30 a.m. Never
in my wildest dreams could I
anticipate what would follow.
"I would like for you to write
a weekly column for La.
Gaceta," he said. I was
stunned, "I am not a writer. I
would hate to disappoint you,"
Ireplied. But he said, "You
are a great entertainer, I have
editors that will take care of
what you write, would you be
interested?"
That was 19 years ago,
and the most incrediblejour-
ney began. Little did I know:
that I would do it for 19 years,
at times it seems like just yes-
terday.: The ride has been
.spectacular.
SLike all good things in life,
this ride must end too. After
19 years, sports are no longer
a passion of mine. The story
lines got tougher to come up,
the players became more dis-
tant from the world I live in,
and it just was not fun anymore.
I thought that maybe I could
get my two sons to do it for a
while untilI got through writ-
ers block. It did not work. My
sons are both involved in
sports and school and the
pressure of a weekly deadline
was more than they should
have to handle at ages 13 and-
12. 1 thought they did an ad-
mirable job sitting in.
Last week, Nick came up to me
and said "I love you, I don't
want you to feel like I am let-
ting you down, but the pres-.
sure is a little more than I can
handle." I understood. He


didn't let me down. He was
doing what I wanted to do for
some time. Now it's time for
me to do it.
This is my last article for the
newspaper my mom and dad
loved so much. This was the
paper they read at our house.
I grew up reading it. It is spe-
cial in my heart.
The Manteiga family'has
been splendid. Roland, Patrick
and Angie have been su-
perb folks to work for. I
could not have asked for a bet-
ter group of people.
I-still remember Roland be-
ing the subject of a roast at the
Centro a few years back. He
asked me to be his pinch hit-
ter, to fire back at those that
were there to roast him. Jack
Espinosa, Dr. Ferdie Pacheco
and others flailed away at.
Roland. When it came time for
him to respond he brought on
his "Hit Man," mel I tried to
keep it in the line of Espinosa
and Pacheco, but itjust did not
come out the exact way, a little
too raunchy. Roland was em-
barrassed. I felt like hiding
under'a rock.
The next day Iturned in my
notice to Roland and wrote a
letter of apology to the Damas.
Roland would not have it, he
called me and said, "No way,
we all make mistakes, I want'
you here."
-That was the type of guy
Roland was, and the kind of
people the Manteigas are.That
is why I feel so fortunate to.
have been a part of La Gaceta
for so many years.
I will do a piece from time
to time. Patrick said he would
welcome it. It won't be sports,
but I hope it will be a fun piece.
On behalf of my family, I want
to thank all who have written
over the years expressing
agreement or disagreement
with what I wrote. You made
this journey very exciting.
M.ay God bless each of you.

The Secret of Successful Wing Shooting


, With the migratory bird sea--
son quickly approaching, it be-
hooves those that will partici-
pate in the sport to begin to
hone their shooting skills.
Those who have been at the
sport for a long time well know
that practice, practice and
more practice is the secret of
successful wing shooting.
True, some of us, no matter
how much practice, will never
be exceptional shotgunners.
For those of us that are so af-
flicted, practice does keep us
from being totally embarrassed
during the shoots.
Bird shooting aficionados
traditionally use various meth-
ods lof practice. Trap, skeet,
sporting clays or rehearsal in.
one's own private property are
all the tools that will make a
mediocre shooter's score soar.
The fine points of gauge, choke
and load selection, determin-
ing lead and distance and the
follow through can only be
mastered by experimentation
and repetitive shooting. But
the question remains, in the
encroaching scheme of subur-
ban growth; where and how
can we practice?.
In the Tampa area and vi-
cinity, the Silver Dollarisa first
class resort offering a variety
of entertainment even beyond
shooting. The Silver Dollar
complex offers 26 trap and two
skeet fields as well as a five-,
stand station. To relax before.
and after the shoots, the S. D.
Club provides a.5000 square
foot clubhouse and snack bar.
Should the shoot end early or
start late, the sports persons
can walk across the street and
enjoy the use of three separate
nine-hole golf courses. And, if
one should decide to spend
more than a day at S.D., there
are recreational vehicle spaces
for rent. Best try for those be-
fore the winter crowds arrive.
At the Silver Dollar, shooters*
need not be members to try
their shooting facilities. Day
rates are available to those
that use the facilities to either


practice or to enjoy a day at
the trap or skeet:fields.
Skeet is a shooting game
where eight shooting stations
and two target houses (one
high house and one low house)
are situated around a semi-
circle. The shooters begin at
station one as they move
around the semicircle they face
, the targets launched from left
and right. In skeet, most shots
will be less than 25 yards.
Of the flying clay disks sports
events, trap is the oldest. In
this game, there is only one
launcher or trap house situ-
ated 16 yards in front of the less
demanding five shooting posi-
tions. Other more difficult sta-
tions for the more experienced
shooters are situated as far
back as 27 yards from the trap.
Sporting Clays is the new-
est of our shotgunning sports.
Because of the within the for-
est setting of the various sta-
tions, shots are presented
among trees and bushes. Some
imitate running rabbits others,
coming or going, high or low
or across the sights of the
shooter. Because of the unpre-
dictable situations and angles
of the flying clay birds, some
shooters opine that Sporting
Clays offer the greatest simi-
larity to actual hunting condi-
tions. No two of the 10 to 12
stations are ever the same.
Those who have access to
private lands can invest a few
dollars in their own clay bird-
throwing machine, buy a box
or two of the discs and enjoy
all the practice they want at
their own leisure. By changing
the angle and the position of
the shooters in reference to the
machine, most shooting situ-
ations can be imitated. The thing
is to get that eye-to-hand co-
ordination tweaked to as much
perfection as your brain capac-
ity allows. Only one way to do
.it is by burning some powder.
Practice sessions also help
the shooters identify their pref-
erences. Some of our excellent
wing shots in Tampa will tell

more to talk about than ever


you that their favorite
scattergun is the 20-gauge.
Others, with perhaps greater.
egos and keener accuracy, will
use a 410. Even with their less
powerful scatterguns, they bag
their limit of birds in a fraction
of the time some of us shooting
the more powerful 12-gauge
smoothbores would, if ever we
can at all. Most of us average,
mediocre or poor wing shots,
merely burn powder and fill
they sky with BBs everywhere
except where the birds are.
Wing shooting sports are
always fun at least in the tra-
dition of the old timers of this
area. Some of our friends work
diligently at their dove fields all
year long. In order to attract
birds to their property, they
plant various seed crops. This
is a labor intensive and expen-
sive effort that involves isolat-
ing the field from cattle by
erecting-fences, mowing, plow-
ing, disking, fertilizing and ir-
rigating the crops.
Those few property owners
that graciously share their
fields with friends and family,
some times stage big wild game
dinners before or after the
shoots. Deer tenderloin, veni-
son sausage served with sauteed
onions and green peppers over
Cuban bread and compli-
mented by baked beans and
potato salad have made for
some of the most successful
wing shooting events this
writer has ever witnessed. For
some of us, these picnic/
shoots are also some of the great-
est family events of the season.
Now that I have told you all
that you need to know about
how to prepare yourself for
next dove and quail season, for-
get all about honing your shot-
gunning skills. Just save'some
of your venison sausage and
tenderloins for your next dove
hunt. Whether you are an ex-
pert with the smoothbore or not,
you will be a sure hit with your
shooting buddies when the
food line forms at the next shoot.

LA GACETA/Friday, July 25, 2003/Page 17
























For years Dr. Ferde -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

Continued from last week...

We pulled in to the Don
Cesar Hotel on the beach. It is
a beautiful old ruin from the
thirties, but they got 'em fixed
up so it is like is was when it
was new.
We check in, and I'm sur-
prised to see that Doc gets two
rooms, and not even adjoining.
I don't know whether I'm sur-
prised, or hurt, or disappointed.
Doc hands me a little bag
an expensive bag, and says,
"I took the liberty of buying
you a few bathing suits and a
frock or two. We're going to be
here for three days. I got you a
mini-vacation from Rueben.
He is happy to have you take a
rest. He says you deserve it."
I can't hardly wait to go to
my room and see what I got. I
feel like I'm 12 years old and
Santa done come calling, I've
had bad luck with men, as I
told you, and none of 'em ever
brought me presents, except
once, my.first husband Wilbur
bought me a deluxe first-aid
kit, which I didn't figure counts
as a present.
First off, the room over-
looked the beach, I was on the
eighth floor and my breath was
coming in short gasps. The
look at all that blue-green wa-
ter was like a giant Valium and
I felt all soft and hoogly-googly
inside. Oh, and there was a big
fruit basket with a bottle of
Champagne in the middle. So
I peeled me a banana cause I
felt like I might need the po-
tassium before the night was
through.
I tried on both suits. One
was a one-piece black suit. It
sounds modest, but the way it
was cut, oh my. Half my butt
hung out, and I thanked God
for my hard work at the Iron
Works which had reduced my
butt from the size of Australia-
to the size of Texas. Big, but
-shapely, like when I wuz a
cheerleader. The front was cut
low, and for once I didn't mind
that I'd show my "twin peaks"
as they say in the dime nov-
els.
The other swimsuit was
what they call the thong. Well,
the only place you could wear
that and not be embarrassed
would have been a nudist
colony. Was this some kind of
test?
The three frocks were from
Lilli Rubin..Big price tag. Very
pretty. He also had a white
cocktail dress from The Bou-
levard, which was to die for,
with shoes to match. Well, I
never had a man wanting to
put clothes on me, they're al-
ways fighting and clawing to
take clothes off me.
Ill tell you straight. It felt
good.
You know when you've seen
a man dressed everyday you
can hardly imagine what hell
look like with no clothes. Doc
always wore Armani or
Valantino suits, even if they


were sly-sucker, they were per-
fectly tailored. The most re-
laxed clothes I'd seen Doc
wear, usually on weekends,
were white starched
guayaveras. He looked spiffy
with a blue poker dotted scarf
tucked into the white collar.
When he came in the diner
with his Charlie Chan hat, his
guayavera, and holding a long
rich brown MonteCresto in a
silver holder, he looked like the
President of Cuba. People
spoke to him in Spanish, and
he always responded with a
smile, which made the people
think he could speak Spanish,
although he couldn't speak a
word.
We met in the lobby, both
of us had on matching terry
cloth robes and slippers, and
we walked on the soft white
sand, I wanted to hold his
hand, but I didn't. Doc looked
like the kind of man who liked
to make the first move himself.
We rented two lounges and
the time came for the great
unveiling. I wasn't a bit wor-
ried about me cause I looked
killer great in my black one-
piece suit. The legs, the butt,
and a trim waistline more than
passed the test. The trouble
was I was a hard 35-year-old
body,, and poor Doc might be
embarrassed by his old body
compared to mine.
Boy, was I wrong Doc
slipped out of his robe and he
had on trim boxer shorts and
he looked just like Burt
Lanchaster in "From Here to
Eternity." He was tall, as I said,
and his abddmen was all rip-
pling with washer board per-
fect muscles. His legs looked
like Iron springs; he looked like
he ran track.
Even his feet were perfect,
without any corns or bunions.
Guys who lived through the era
of tight, bad shoes in the for-
ties and fifties all have corns.
Not Doc.
He took my hand, and be-
fore I could catch my breath
we ran hand in hand into the
surf. The water was warm in
the late afternoon, and the
sandbar was further out, and
we dove into the waves and
frolicked around as if we were
teenagers. It felt so good to
have salt water run up my
nose, and the push of the big
waves felt playful, as if nature
were playing a game with us.
Doc looked like a man who
had been in the sea all his life.
He dove and came up with
starfish, and round beautiful
shells. Once he saw a family
of dolphins about 50 yards off-
shore, and he swam out and
played with them. I was so
scared for him, but he rode
their backs, and it looked like
a family reunion. You could
tell, ol' Doc was a guy at home
on a beach, meant to be in the
water.
Doc had a special way with
people. I mean he could criti-
cize how you look, and some-
how, it came out like a com-
pliment, and in the end, in the
gentlest sort of way he'd
Changes how you looked for the
better, you felt thankful.
I always thought it was like
a religious experience to go to
LaFrance Beauty salon and
have me a $35 C.J. I come out
of there, my hair up on my
head with so many rolls and
curls, and stiff with shellac so


I could butted heads with a
linebacker from the Bucs and
not felt a thang. Then,
o'course, I had to keep rolling
my hair, teasing, spraying and
being careful not to mess it up.
Since I hadn't had a man to
make love to me or beat me my
hair stayed pretty much the
same til it died on Thursday
night.
When we got back to the
room Doc asked me if we could
shower together in my room to
get the salt water off. Well, I'd
heard every kind of imaginable
line, but hell, Doc didn't need
no line to get me nekkid, all he
had to do was hint. But we got
into the shower with our swim-
suits oh, and I was beginning
to get nervous.
Turns out he bought this
big bottle of ol' special hoogey
gooley shampoo and some
rinse and he spent a lot of time
doing my hair, and it felt good
being in the shower stall all
soapy and rubbing up against
each other and having my hair
worked on.
"You have lovely hair. Its
thick and very strong" Doc said
starting out my makeover
without my even realizing what
he was doing.
We toweled off and put on
those fluffy robes and we wuz
nekkid under all that fluff and
I was getting' all hot under the
collar. But ol' Doc he was
working my hair with the hair
blower. Then he started to
comb it Out, and danged if he
didn't produce a scissor and
snipped a bit here and there,
all the time telling me to stop
torturing my hair and to let it
live. To give it one year of hap-
piness, guaranteed.
"I'll bet you had almost
white hair when you were a
child."
"White like an albino," I
said. "I hated it."
"With a little help your hair
could be, will be, a golden
blonde color."
"Why, it used to be, once
upon time, when I was in my
twenties."
"It will be again. You see
Elodie, God gave you a great
deal of beauty but you've been
working overtime to cover up
his good work." He combed out
my hair, snipped some more,
and it started to look like a
fabulous Page boy cut like you
see on models in Victoria's Se-
cret catalogues.
"Nothing can add to the
good work of God. Your skin is
clear and translucent, a purity
of whiteness which comes from
your Nordic background. You
are meant to be a blonde
beauty with a beautiful com-
plexion and stunning blue
eyes." He turned my head to
the mirror and I must say I
looked pretty damned good.
"Hell, Doc, I can't remem-
ber when I looked so pretty...
and that's without make-up.
Doc took all my Max Factor
pancake make-up and as-
sorted bottles and put 'em in a
plastic bag and threw the bag
in the trashcan.
"Look at your eyes. Look at
the cool loveliness of those per-
fect blue eyes. Why they are
like two pools of cool water. I
feel like just jumping in."
.I looked at the mirror and
danged if he wasn't right again.
I had great big blue eyes. Why,
they was just pure pretty.
"You can't hide them with


On ea fI-apes urate


Liza Minnelli eyelashes. I
brought you just the right
shade of eyeliner, and a very
soft eye blush just a hint of
blue, and now look! Your eyes
have jumped out from behind'
the black bushes and are
standing out." "I want you to
try this lipstick I got. You have
a very sensuous mouth, full
and almost Mediterranean
with a sensational top lip. Ac-
centuate it. Flaunt it. Your
mouth is the jewel of your
crown."
I looked in the mirror again
and saw a different me.
Gloriowski, as Lil Orphan
Annie sez, I was gorgeous. Like
that actress on daytime T.V.
that always loses the Emmy.
We had a late dinner, and
to my surprise, he took me to
my room and didn't even kiss
me goodnight. We drove to Tar-
pon Springs for lunch next day'
among the Greek sponge
divers, and went into St. Pete
to seethe Dali museum. I ain't
never been in no museum to
see art, so you could have
knocked me over with a
feather. Doc tole me all about
Dali, and we spent hours there
until it was time for the beach
and the gorgeous sunset,
again, we went to John's Pass
for a late seafood dinner, and
straight to bed. I was begin-
ning to feel hurt, except that
he was so much fun to be with,
and, I'll admit it here, I was
head over heels in love with ol'
Doc. Whatever he wanted was
O.K. with me.
The last night was some-
thing special. 01' Doc decided
to throw me a curve and he got
me all dressed up in my killer
cocktail dress and'took me all
the way back to Tampa where
he had made reservations at
the Columbia Restaurant.
"You can't live in Tampa and
not go into Ybor City and see
the Columbia, the Gem of all
Spanish Restaurants."
I didn't want to rain on his
parade, but I been to ol' Ybor
City, and it flat out scared the
shit outta me. I had a date with
an ol' boy that had a Harley-
Davidson, and I'd always
wanted to ride on one of them
hogs, and press my tits on a
big musclely back, and roar
around sounding tough. He
took me down Seventh Ave on
a Saturday night and there
was a whole herd of Harley's
and they had more needles
sticking out their arms than a
porcupine, and it flat out
scared me to death, and I
swore, if I could possibly help
it, I wouldn't go to Ybor City
again.
But now here we wuz on a
Tuesday, and Seventh Ave was
all quiet like, with regular ci-
vilians walking around, edu-
cated- like, and little
Christmacy lights a twinkling
and the place looked com-
pletely different. We pulled up
to a beautiful Spanish castle-
like and the parking attendant
smiles at Doc and doesn't give
him a ticket.
"Hiya Doc. Can't stay away
from the Flamenco, eh?"
'They got Flamingo's in
there Doc?" I says wondering
if they was good eating.
Doc laughs as he helps me
out of the Mustang..
"Flamenco is a way of Span-
ish dance. It is very exciting
and colorful. They have two
sisters, Maria and Carolina,
who are marvelous to watch,
and they are very beautiful.
Youll enjoy the show, and the

'food is superb."
We walked into an open-air
room called the Patio, with a
big fountain in the middle of
the room of a boy playing with
a dolphin. It looked kinda
dirty, you know, but I didn't
say nothin'.
An old bent-over man was:
playing a worn piano. You
could see he'd been a hand-
some man but he looked a
hundred. 01' Doc put a twenty
in the pocket of his tux.
"Play Siboney, Henry," Doc
said, and I could see Henry
sigh. How many times had he
played Siboney?
"How's it going, Doc?" Henry
said shifting his cigarette to the
other side of his mouth, ashes
falling down the front of his old
tuxedo.
We sat in a room called the
Quixote, which was very el-
egant. Doc ordered some food,
which came in ajiffy and it was
yellow rice with all kinds of
seafood, which he says was
called a paella. The bread was
hot and I could've eaten a loaf.
Then the place got dark,
and guitars started playing
and these beautiful girls came
out in Spanish costumes- and
started stomping their heels,
kinda like clogging, and they
had pieces of wood they
banged together called casta-
nets. Well, it took my breath
away and I didn't want it to
stop, but it did.
Carolina, a beautiful young
girl came over and spoke to
Doc who introduced her to me.
She was just a kid, and so
fresh faced. Her sister Maria,
a more ripe version of Carolina
swept by, kissed Doc on the
cheek and said in her sweet way.
"Thanks for the help, Doc.
It worked and I'm so happy."
He waved them off, called
for the bill drove down
Bayshore Boulevard with the
top down and the moon shin-
ing over the bay and we did not
continue on down the Gandy
Boulevard to St. Pete Beach,
but went straight to the Sun
Burst Motel, took me to his
rooms which were elegant and
dimly lit, took me in his arms
kissed me sensuously, took my
cocktail dress off, and carried
me to bed.
Just like Rhett took Scarlett
up those red-carpeted steps to
bed. I don't know how Scarlett
made out, but I sure didn't
have no complaints.

At the hAdovies with Jason Alessi


Zombie Horror, British Style


Movie: 28 Days Laters
Director: Danny Boyle
Cast: Cillian Murphy,
Naomie Harris, Megan Burs,
Brenden Gleeson
Rated: R (graphic violence,
profanity, nudity)
Running time: 112 min.
Director Danny Boyle's 28
Days Later is a throwback to
George Romero's Living Dead
trilogy (Night of the Living
Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and
Day of the Dead). Romero's
films about flesh-eating zom-
bies terrorizing what's left of
mankind have become cult
classics and Boyle's film may
become the same. Boyle is best
known for directing
Trainspotting and The Beach.
The horror begins when a
group of determined animal
rights activists free a group of
chimpanzees from a science
lab. While the activists think
they are doing a heroic act in


freeing the animals, they are
unaware that the chimps are
carrying a deadly virus called
Rage.
Twenty-eight days after the
virus gets out, a coma victim
awakens from his deep sleep
in an abandoned hospital. The
man's name is Jim (Cillian
Murphy) and he soon realized
that the hospital isn't all that's
abandoned ...
...All of London is empty
There's no one on the
streets, dead or alive. Jim is all
by himself, until he meets a few-
other survivors who are not in
a kindly sort of mood. They are
infected with Rage, and they
crave human blood.
Thankfully, Jim hooks up
with some survivors who are
not infected; they are Selma
(Naomie Harris) and Mark
(Noah Huntley), and they've
been doing all they can to keep
the flesh-eaters at bay.


The film 28 Days Later is
genuinely terrifying. The film
uses digital cameras, which
gives it a raw, gritty feel. The
hideous effects of the deadly
virus on human beings will no
doubt make the viewer cringe.
While the main characters are
not trapped inside a building
or home, there is still a tremen-
dous feeling of isolation. They
are all by themselves in what
seems to be a dead world.
The movie's pacing is the
turnoff. It chooses to be gradu-
ally moved along, perhaps to
enhance the viewer's tension
and uneasiness, but it just
tests the viewer's patience
more than anything. If not for
the slow pace, I might consider
28 Days one of the year's best
films, but as it is, the movie's
a trip down the road traveled
far too often by other zombie
lovers.
Grade: C+
