The state has approved the
money to build the connector
between I-4 and the Crosstown
Expressway. The elevated road
will be built along the 30th Street
corridor east of Ybor City. The
connector was to be a joint project
between the Florida Department


of Transportation (FDOT) and the
Hillsborough County Expressway
Authority, but because of the Ex-
pressway Authority's problems
with its current construction the
FDOT will build the connector by
itself. This could pose a problem
to Ybor City. The Expressway


Authority was a leading voice in
making the connector a very at-
tractive addition to our commu-
nity. The Authority wanted to seek
federal funds to make a park that
would run along the path of the
connector and to give the bridge
over 7th Avenue a high level of
decorative design. The FDOT is
not as likely to give the connector
such treatment. They like to build
them fast and ugly and Ybor could
pay the price. The city and Ybor
organizations need to step up and
let FDOT know that the Historic
District deserves the best.

Tampa will be one of four cities
bidding on the 2009 Super Bowl.


Our competition will be Houston,
Atlanta and Miami. We have a
shot at this one.
*****
We had several calls from lower
level people in the school system
saying that Dr. James Hamilton,
chief of staff of the superinteri-
dent's office, has a lock on the
superintendent's job and they
were upset that the process would
be unfair. We have talked to many
on the school board and firmly be-
lieve that there is no anointed suc-
cessor to school Superintendent
Dr. Earl Lennard. The board is
committed to a nationwide search

Un juez abri6 process penal a la hermana del

una orden de arrest domiciliario en relaci6n con un caso
de falsificaci6n de firmas por parte del partido del
mandatario. Marcelo Allemant, abogado de Margarita To-
ledo, confirm a periodistas la orden de arrest domiciliario
dictada la noche del lunes. Agentes de la policia judicial
llegaron temprano ayer al domicilio de Margarita Toledo
para entregar la notificaci6n con la orden del juez, seguin
observaron reporters apostados en las afueras de la
vivienda. Se desconocia si ella recibi6 personalmente la
notificaci6n, y no ha habido reacci6n inmediata en esferas
oficiales. MEXICO
La percepci6n que los habitantes de Ciudad de Mexico
tienen de su alcalde, el izquierdista Andr6s Manuel L6pez
Obrador, baj6 en 2004 con respect del afio precedent,
segin una encuesta. El sondeo de la firma privada
Consulta Mitofsky encontr6 que el 50.4% de los capitalinos
destac6 en diciembre pasado la honradez del alcalde,
frente al 65.7% que subray6 esa cualidad en el mismo
mes de 2003. L6pez Obrador, del Partido de la Revoluci6n

todas las encuestas de intenci6n de voto con miras a las
elecciones presidenciales de 2006.
GUATEMALA
La Comisi6n Permanente de Contingencias (COPECO)
de Honduras pidi6 ayer a la poblaci6n de la region norte
"mantenerse alerta" tras registrarse various movimientos
telfiricos imperceptible para la poblaci6n en los Lltimos
dias. Aunque la situaci6n no es de alarma, se "pueden
registrar un event telirico, una erupci6n volcdnica en el
fondo del mar o un deslizamiento de una masa de tierra
considerable o un terremoto', dijo a periodistas el
comisionado de COPECO, Luis G6mez.
CHILE
Corte de Apelaciones de Santiago de Chile ratific6 la
media propuesta por eljuez Juan Guzmin, pero no acept6
rebajale la fianza de 3.750 d6lares. La defense de Pinochet
habia argumentado para pedir la libertad provisional la
avanzada edad de su defendido y la demencia vascular
irreversible que supuestamente padece. Ademis el abogado
Pablo Rodriguez habia solicitado al tribunal una rebaja del
monto de la fianza, pero recibi6 una negative como
respuesta, por lo que para quedar efectivamente en libertad
debera depositar el dinero. Segdn habia dicho el letrado, el
ex dictador no contaba con fondos para pagar la fianza
puesto que eljuez Sergio Mufioz embargo todos sus bienes
en el marco de las investigaciones por las cuentas secrets
en Estados Unidos.
PANAMA
El gobiemo panamefio decret6 el estado de emergencia
national por temporada de lluvias. La provincia caribefia
de Bocas del Toro, limitrofe con Costa Rica, ha sido la
mas afectada por el mal tiempo. Un hombre de 73 afios
perdi6 la vida en.esa region y otros dos j6venes panameflos

director del Sistema Nacional de Protecci6n Civil
(SINAPROC), Roberto Velasquez, dijo desde la zona del
desastre que en Bocas del Toro hay mAs de 10.000 perso-

a albergues temporales a 6.489 personas.
CUBA
El canciller Felipe P6rez Roque anunci6 los contacts
oficiales con las embajadas de Holanda, Repfiblica Checa,
Eslovaquia y Polonia. "Podemos decir que a partir de este
moment Cuba ha restablecido los contacts oficiales a
nivel de Gobierno con todos los paises de la Uni6n Europea
(UE)", dijo Perez Roque en breves declaraciones a la prensa.
La reanudaci6n de los contacts con esas cuatro naciones
y la Comisi6n Europea se debe a "la respetuosa solicitud"
hecha al respect por los Gobiernos de Bl6gica, Espafia,
Luxemburgo y por el Comisario Louis Michel, indic6 Perez
Roque. La pasada semana, P6rez Roque anunci6 un gesto
similar con las embajadas de Francia, Reino Unido,
Alemania, Italia, Austria, Grecia, Portugal y Suecia.

Tres afios despues de la tragedia que vivi6 Honduras a raiz del huracan Mitch,
parece que el mundo entero se olvid6 de ese pueblo tan abandonado en el
mapa de Centroamnrica. Alrededor de 20 mil hondurefios quedaron sin hogar
y hasta la fecha habitan de manera "temporal" en refugios creados por el
gobierno, que no representan una estabilidad habitacional, ni much menos
emotional para las families que depedenden de la caridad humana. Miles de
nifios estin creciendo en vecindarios provicionales y calls a medio construir.
No obstante, al parecer las naciones desarrolladas y entire ellas Estados
Unidos, consideran que con el TPS para los hondurefios que viven en suelo
americano estin solucionando el problema de fondo. Pero no es cierto. La
asistencia evaporada no se puede, ni se debe limitar alli. Sabemos que el plane-
ta esti conmocionado con el reciente maremoto en Tailandia. Sin embargo,
los hondurefios tambien necesitan de la ayuda humanitarian que tuvieron en
su moment, pero que siempre es bienvenida, porque "levantar" a un pueblo
devastado, sin recursos, con hambre y desolaci6n no se puede hacer de la
noche a la mafiana. OjalA que los grandes lideres abran bien los ojos y open
tambien por compadecerse de tantas criaturas necesitadas.


iSr. President, Devuelvale la Vida a Miles!

aquellas armas de destrucci6n
masiva estaban en. Irak, a
pesar, de la conclusion de la
Comisi6n, la evidencia de la
guerra, la capture de Husseim
y la mayoria de sus lugarte-
nientes.
Ya vimos, con tristeza,
como la Inteligencia Militar en
Irak se transform en torturas
y, sin embargo, las armas de
destrucci6n masiva no apare-
cieron. Simplemente no hay
que buscar nada mas, except
una salida digna a una equivo-
caci6n colosal.
dQu6 otras vergonzosas
maniobras puede hacer Bush,
y su administraci6n para esca-
par el escario mundial?
La autoridad de las Nacio-
nes Unidas ha sido brutal-
mente violada a raiz de la
transgresi6n de Bush, y este
precedent sera la plataforma
de abuses para futuras "gue-
rras preventivas" de otras na-
ciones para lanzarse a inva-
siones y guerras fratricidas.
iEste es el gran legado de Bush
a la diplomacia internacionall
Esta vergonzosa lecci6n
para la naci6n americana, se
ha convertido en un paradigm
mundial de acusaciones y
justificaciones para posiciones
recalcitrantes. Ni siquiera la
reciente buena voluntad del
pueblo americano, el ejercito,
e incluso Bush, ayudando a las
victims del maromoto asia-
tico del fi de afio, ha podido
sacudir el estigma de las trans-
grecciones de la guerra en Irak.
Los 1200 soldados asigna-
dos a la bfisqueda de armas
de destrucci6n masiva, se
hallan desde hace meses,
simplemente patrullando las
calls de las ciudades iraquies,


en busca de una elusiva paz y
democracia.
Ciento cincuenta mil solda-
dos en total se encuentran
tratando de dominar a una
ecl6ctica insurgencia, cuyo
prop6sito es simple, la retirada
de las tropas estadounidenses
del territorio iraqui.
La falsedad de unas elec-
ciones democrAticas en Irak,
es una idea tan extravagant
y ofensiva como lo fue la


existencia de las armas de
destrucci6n masiva en Irak.
Sr. President, tanto se ha
dicho al respect de Irak, que
las palabras sobran, y sobran
los muertos, y sobran las
mentiras... y especialmente
sobra la insensatez.
iSr Presidente le queda mas
facil instaurar la democracia
por decreto que por las armas.
Devu6lvale Irak a los iraquies
y la vida a nuestros soldadosl


Favor de los
La Suprema Corte de la
naci6n dictamin6 ayer que el
gobierno no puede detener
indefinidamente a los inmi-
grantes que no pueden ser
deportados a su pais de origen.
El fallo de 7-2 votos afecta a
mAs de dos mil inmigrantes
detenidos que no pueden ser
deportados, dijo el Depar-
tamento de Justicia. Casi la
mitad de ellos son "marielitos".
Otro fallo anunciado ayer
declara que losjueces federales
deben tener discreci6n a la
hora de sentenciar a un con-
victo, por lo que no tienen al
obligaci6n se seguir al pie de
la letra las normas legales
dadas para esos casos.
En su decision sobre los
inmigrantes, la corte accedi6 a
extender el alcance de un fall
emitido en el 2001, que limit
la detenci6n de inmigrantes a
un periodo razonable" de
aproximadamente seis meses.
Ese dictamen era s6lo para
inmigrantes que llegaron al
pais legalmente, cometieron
crimenes por los que debian
ser deportados, y sus gobieros
les negaron la entrada en su
patria.


Inmigrantes
El fallo de ayer atafie a los
inmigrantes que se encuentren
en la misma situaci6n, pero
entraron al pais ilegalmente. La
mayoria de los detenidos han
permanecido en el pais por
various afios, cometieron un cri-
-men, cumplieron sus
condenas v luego Dasaron a
manos de las autoridades de
inmigraci6n para su
deportaci6n.
"No hay much gente en esa
situaci6n", dijo Nadine Wetts-
tein, abogada con la Fundaci6n
Legal de Abogados de Inmi-
graci6n en Washington. Pero
los que se encuentran en cus-
todia de inmigraci6n en la
situaci6n que indic6 la corte
podrdn verse en libertad muy
pronto, dijo Wettstein.
"Por otro lado, si cometen
otro crime, podran -ir a la
cArcel otra vez", afirm6. El
caso particular que Ileg6 a la
Corte Suprema involucr6 a dos
cubanos que iegaron a este
pais durante el 6xodo de
Mariel en 1980. A uno de ellos,
a Daniel Benitez, quien lleg6
al pais ilegalmente durante el
6xodo de Mariel, se le neg6 la
residencia permanent.

AMenopausia Masculina?
-Estimada Dra Jimenez: Mi esposo tiene 45 afios. En los
uiltimos meses su deseo sexual ha disminuido y se siente
fatigado con much frecuencia. 'Existe la menopausia
masculina? dPuede ser esto la causa de sus sintomas? Irene
-Estimada Irene: Para muchos hombres, los primeros
sintomas de la andropausia (menopausia masculina) se
presentan sutilmente y a menudo son confundidos con estr6s
o depresi6n. Los sintomas mas frecuentes son: irritabilidad,
nerviosismo, insomnio, depresi6n, falta de concentraci6n, fatiga,
disminuci6n de la fuerza del chorro de.la prina, disminuci6n
del nfimero de erecciones espontineas matutinas, disminuci6n
de la calidad de las erecciones e impotencia. ,
Los cambios son atribuidos a la disminuci6n de los niveles
de la hormona testosterone y extremadamente variables para
cada individuo, con aquellos que tiene una disminuci6n franca
en la d6cada de los 30s, hasta aquellos que presentan niveles
de testosterone normales en la d6cada de los 70s.
La disminuci6n de los niveles de testosterone puede ser
causada por diferentes padecimientos como cirrosis,
alcoholism, radiaci6n, enfermedad cardiovascular, enfermedad
pulmonar, fallo renal, cancer, problems vasculares, tumor en
la glandula pituitaria, deficiencia nutricional, obesidad y
trastornos geneticos.
Y que podemos decir de los hombres que presentan una
variedad de sintomas y los niveles de testosterone en sangre
son normales? Estos datos han contribuido a la creencia de
muchos autores, que aseguran que 1os niveles de la hormona
masculina, no estan relacionados con los cambios de la media
vida. Segun el Dr Eugene Shippen en su libro "El Sindrome de
la Tesiosterona" (The Testosterone Sindrome) hay hombres que
tienein niveles normales de testosterone, y niveles 'anormales"
de estr6genos (hormona femenina) que los hombres
normalmente tienen un pequefio porcentaje y es parte funda-
mental del balance hormonal. La relaci6n normal es
considerada como de 50 a 1 (cincuenta veces mas testosterone
que estr6genos). Y el cambio en esa relaci6n puede explicar
muchos de los sintomas de la andropausia.
Algunas causes de elevaci6n de los estrgenios en el hombre
son: obesidad, deficiencia de zinc, aumento de la actividad de
la enzima aromatasa, abuso del alcohol, algunos tratamientos
farmacol6gicos (diur6ticos-antihipertensivos), alteraci6n de la
funci6n hepAtica y la ingestion de estr6genos con los alimentos
(xenohormonas-carne de animals que fueron alimentados
con hormones para apresurar su crecimiento).
La testosterone activa- es la lRamada testosteronea libre",
constitute el 2% a 3% de la testosterone total y estard
disminuida "si los niveles de estr6genos estan elevados".
Asegurese que como parte de los examenes diagn6sticos, se
indiquen niveles de testosterone libre y estr6genos. El
tratamiento farmacol6gico sera indicado para el caso que asi
lo amerite. Es important la mejoria de su alimentaci6n (libre
de xenohormonas), el control del peso y la incorporaci6n de
ejercicio regular en su rutina diaria.Para m&s informaci6n.

PAgina 4/LA GACETA/Viernes, 14 de enero de 2005


Por: Arturo R. Rivera, J.D
La administraci6n Bush ha
escogido un camino peligroso
en torno al tratamiento que el
gobierno de Estados Unidos le
estA dando a los prisioneros de
guerra por los filtimos tres
anos.
En estos moments se es-
ta evaluando al nominado para
la Secretaria de Justicia de la
naci6n, Alberto Gonzalez. Este
fue quien recomend6 en un
memorando, como abogado del
president George W. Bush,
circunvalar la Convenci6n de
Ginebra en el uso de la tortura,
por considerar la Convenci6n
obsoleta.
Con toda probabilidad, el
senior Gonzalez serd confir-
mado por el Senado de Esta-
dos Unidos y la naci6n pron-
tamente olvidara el patron que
el gobiemo de Estados Unidos
ha establecido en los ultimos
tres afios que transform la
naci6n de una que condenaba
la tortura y prohibia su uso a
una que la practice rutina-
riamente.
Despu6s de los ataques del
11 de septiembre, 2001, agen-
tes de inteligencia comenza-
ron a utilizar la tortura como
un medio para extraer informa-
ci6n a los prisioneros en Afga-
nistAn. Informes de la Cruz Ro-
ja, investigaciones del Mayor
General Antonio Taguba y la
Comisi6n del Pentagono, pre-
sidida por James R. Schlesin-
ger, y otras investigaciones
independientes demuestran
el trato cruel e inhumano y de-
gradante, equivalent a la tor-
tura, que reciben los prisio-
neros de guerra en custodia del
gobierno americano.
Despu6s del 11 de sep-
tiembre los agents de inteli-
gencia empezaron a torturar a
prisioneros de Al Qaeda. En-
tre las t6cnicas utilizadas se
encuentran, el sumergir a un
prisionero, desnudo y esposa-
do, en un tanque de agua, has-
ta que empieza a perder el co-


nocimiento. Tambi6n se ha
utilizado otros m6todos, tales
como: la sofocaci6n, el privar a
los prisioneros del suefio, uti-
lizaci6n de luces y de calor, ma-
nipulaci6n de la dieta alimen-
ticia y posiciones de tension y
degradantes.
Las fotografias de la prisi6n
de Abu Ghraib muestran a
prisioneros de Irak en posicio-
nes de tension y posiciones
degradantes, lo que constituia
el uso rutinario como formas
de intimidaci6n y tortura para
que los agents de inteligencia
extrajeran informaci6n de los
prisioneros.
Todo esto represent en pri-
mera instancia una violaci6n
a los derechos humans y un
trato cruel e inhuman que la
Convenci6n de Ginebra san-
ciona como illegal. Hay que re-
cordar que los Estados Unidos
estAn lamados a obedecer di-
cha Convenci6n. Por otro lado,
la estatura moral de los Es-.
tados Unidos, pais que dio
ejemplo en la persecuci6n y
enjuiciamiento de los crimi-
nales de guerra nazis, se le-
siona al actuar en una forma
illegal, y ademas, pone en grave
riesgo a los prisioneros de guer


rra americanos que sean cap-
turados, quienes recibirdn el
mismo trato.
Otro angulo que se olvida es
que el C6digo Uniforme de Jus-
ticia Militar penaliza a los
miembros de las Fuerzas Ar-
madas que incurren en tortura.
Sin embargo, todo esto pasa
desapercibido cn una admi-
nistraci6n que siempre esta
en la negaci6n de los hechos
probados. Los valores morales,
asunto que supuestamente en
6sta pasada elecci6n fue de-
terminante para los votantes,
tal parece que no son de aplica-
bilidad en torno al uso de la
tortura.
La estatura moral de una
naci6n se pierde cuando re-
curre a dichas pr&cticas y como
cuesti6n de hecho, diluye el
mensaje del president, que
quiere un Medio Oriente de-
mocrdtico y que respete los
derechos humans.
Por lltimo, como cuesti6n
de estrategia, las imdgenes de
prisioneros maltratados dan al
enemigo la propaganda nece-
saria para reclutar combatien-
tes. La tortura es el mecanis-
mo de los d6biles no de los
poderosos.


C6mo Leer Facturas Telef6nicas
A petici6n de la Comisi6n de Servicios PIblicos de la Flo-
rida, la Ley de Telecomunicaciones ha ejecutado una revision
de c6mo se interpreta y se lee con mayor facilidad las facturas
telef6nicas, y para ello prepare para los consumidores de la
Florida una guia practice que permitirA a los usuarios en-
tenderlas.
Segin explic6 Denise J. Karnes, de la Comisi6n de Serivios
Pfiblicos, el prop6sito de este boletin al consumidor, es ayu-
dar lo relacionado con las tarifas y cargos que se cobran ca-
da mes.
Explic6 que este curso basico sera muy distinto la inter-
pretaci6n de esta facturas telef6nicas, las cuales se compo-
nen de tres aspects: cargos de servicio local, cargos de
servicio delarga distancia e impuestos.
Si usted tiene alguna pregunta o necesita asistencia con
6ste o cualquier asunto relacionado con la comisi6n, favor
comuniquese con Kevin Bloom o Tarik Noriega en la Oficina

Po: Marta Muln Romero
La llegada del nuevo afio
nos mantiene al dia en cuan-
to a cultures que hacia afios
no considerAbamos en nues-
tro diario vivir. Es que la vida
sigue y la historic tambi6n
sigue siendo una mutaci6n.
Mds. bien son cambios esce-
nicos donde se barajan, cons-
tantemente los sucesos, los
hechos mejor dicho, los cua-
les originados por la mano del
hombre con su quimica espe-
cifica y/o la madre naturaleza
con su profunda creatividad.
En mirada restrospectiva
actualicemos nuestros prime-
ros pasos en el afio que em-
pieza. Algo nos ha hecho re-
cordar aquellas civilizaciones
que en tiempos ya remotos
constituian nuestros estu-
dios de Historia Antigua Me-
dieval.
Le hemos dado la vuelta a
la esfera terrestre o Mapa-
mundi y de moment tenemos
ante nuestra vista la India,
China, la peninsula de De-
kan, Mar Oman, Mar de Ben-
gala: el mundo asiatico en una
palabra. Y decididamente
aceptamos penetrar en aquel
pasado. Veamos:
En hpocas muy remotas, la
India estaba habitada por
pueblos de origen negroide.
Posteriormente, los dravi-
dianis invadieron por el, no-
reste, aportando cierto grado
de civilizaci6n que poseia pues


cultivaban la tierra, fundian
el bronce y fabricaban obje-
tos de alfareria. Hacia el afio
2,500 (A.C.) en esas fdrtiles
regions se estableci6 un gru-
po llamado indo y luego de
varias guerras, y de ser los
arios vencederes, los pueblos
derrotados quedaron some-
tidos a su autoridad.
En el afio 327 (A.C.), debido
a la invasion de Alejandro
Magno, los europeos tuvieron
las primeras noticias de la In-
dia. En el siglo XIII de la Era
Cristiana, los mongoles se es-
tablecieron en esas regions
y en 1398 lo hicieron los tar-
taros, para comenzar a radi-
carse en dicha region los bri-
tdnicos, en 1,613.
Nunca antes de la llegada
de los europeos, estos pue-
blos que habitaban la India,
estuvieron formados bajo un
solo Estado organizado. Fue-
ron agrupaciones mondrqui-
cas semipatriarcales. Se ha-
blaban divididos en numero-
sas tribus que tenian su go-
biemo y leyes propias.
El pueblo se caracterizaba
por la perpetua separaci6n de
y en linajes o castas, de acuer-
do con lo que disponia el C6di-
go de Manfi, conjunto de leyes
remontisimas, escritas en
idioma sanscrito (sagrado).
Este c6digo consta de 5,370
versos, que obra de un anti-
guo legislator llamado Manfi
que ha sido divinizadd por los
hindifes. Su contenido com-
prende todo lo que s relacio-
na con la conduct ciMil, mo-
ral y religiosa del hombre. Sus
leyes tratan los mas vatiados
temas: ideas morales, ritos
del culto, practices piadosas,
nociones de arte military, de
political, de comercio la trans-
migraci6n de las almhs y hasta
las penas y recompensas des-
pu6s de la muerte.
"Las Leyes de Manfi son un
conglomerado de reglas y pre-
ceptos para lo divino y lo hu-
mano, tan prolijamente de-
sordenados, que hace falta
una verdadera y especial sa-
biduria, no s6oo para aclarar-
los y aplicarlos, sino para
descifrar toda la marafia y
leyendas que han brotado del
feliz ayuntamiento de la poe-
sia con la religion..,,
La civilizaci6n india adqui-
ri6 un car.cter teol6gico tan
marcado que todas las mani-
festaciones del espiritu, (cien-
cia, arte y literature) se subor-
dinaban a la religion.
Unos 600 aflos antes de
Cristo apareci6 el principle
Sidarta Gautama, tambi6n co-
nocido por Sakiamuni (profe-
ta de la familiar de los Sakias),
que a partir de los veintinue-
ve (29) afios llev6 vida de ana-
coreta (persona que vive en un
lugar solitario dedicado a la
contemplaci6n y a la peniten-
cia) y tom6 el nombre de Buda
(el sabio). Predic6 la igualdad,
la caridad y la tolerancia en-
tre los hombres y combati6 la
diferencia de castas impues-
tas por los Brahmanes. No re-
conoci6 ninggn ser supremo y
toda la doctrine se reducia a
una moral practice. Creyo
cierta la transmigraci6n de las
almas y tambi6n predic6 el
pesimismo, al afirmar que la
vida es una desgracia y la ani-
quilaci6n es el precio que per-
mite al hombre bueno alcanzar
el Nirvana.

TAMPA BAY LIGHTING ,
Aparentemente no podran
defender este afio el cam-
peoriato que obstentan ya que
la reuni6n prevista entire los
representantes de los equipos
que componen la liga de hoc-
key sobre hielo professional
(NHL) fue cancelada, luego de
comprobarse que las nego-
ciaciones para alcanzar con
los jugadores un nuevo con-
trato colectivo no han pros-
perado en lo absolute.
Los representantes de los
30 equipos de la liga no se han
reunido desde el pasado mes
de septiembre, cuando el
comisionado Gary Bettman
anunci6 lo que en un principio
parecia una postergaci6n tem-
poral de la temporada regular,
mientras se llegaba a un
acuerdo con la asociaci6n de
jugadores para crear unas
nuevas condiciones econ6mi-
cas en los futures contratos y
un tope salarial.
Sin embargo, y pese a haber
existido algunos contacts y
propuestas entire la uni6n de
jugadores y la liga para desblo-
quear la situaci6n, no se ha
llegado al final a ningfn
arreglo y con 120 dias per-
didos y mas de 600 juegos
cancelados, no se observa que
exista una soluci6n que vaya
a permitir salvar el resto de la
temporada regular.
Aunque todavia ro existe
nada official, se espera que en
los pr6ximos dias Bettman
termine de cancelar los par-
tidos que restan de la present
campafia o al menos ponga
una fecha limited para tratar de
llegar a un acuerdo, algo que
parece poco menos que impo-
Osible por los mostrado por las
dos parties en los iltimos
meses.

La temporada 2005 comen-

adjudic6 sin problems el ATP

rivals director, en la primera
semana del afio s61o se luci6

A los Hispanos les Gusta Los Angeles


Por: Rocio Ayuso
(EFE)- Son famosos, son
hispanos y son amantes de
Los Angeles, ciudad que pro-
claman a los cuatro vientos
como parte de la campafia
"See My LA" (Mira mi Los An-
geles.
Suena como una invitaci6n
a ver su ciudad y ese es el
plan, metidos de Ileno en
borrar de la mente de todos
esa creencia popular de que el
coraz6n artistic de los
hispanos en Estados Unidos
esta en Miami.
Como recuerda Edward
James Olmos, uno de los
enamorados de la urbe, Los
Angeles es la capital del cine
del mundo, con docenas de
festivales celebrados en esta
ciudad a lo largo del afio.
Una invitaci6n que no deja
de tener su picardia dado que
Olmos, que cuenta en su
carrera. con una candidatura
al Oscar, es el fundador de
una de estas muestras cine-
matograficas, el Festival Inter-
nacional de Cine Latino que se
celebra en julio.
Pero como recuerda el ac-
tor, "nada como codearse con
las estrellas" y la ciudad que
"aifna aficionados, actors y
directors" es Los Angeles.
La campafia esta patroci-
nada por Los Angeles Inc,
oficina de promoci6n de Los
Angeles como centro de turis-
mo y convenciones
(www.lavb.com) y su meta no
se detiene en captar a los afi-
cionados al cine.
Aunque tambidn es actor, a


Edward James Olmos, el c6lebre actor hispano,
adora la ciudad de Los Angeles.


Cheech Marin le ha tocado
promocionar la otra cara de
Los Angeles, esa que va sobre
ruedas.

viles hasta el Museo Petersen

Es important conocer c6mo actuar en moments de una
emergencia con alguno de sus hijos, o algCn familiar que haya
recibido una cortadura, un golpe, o tenga una deficiencia

mientas de conocimientos en la mano, de esta manera result
sumamente important y funcional en una familiar, o igual-
mente para desarrollar cualquier servicio a la comunidad en
moments de catAstrofes o emergencia general, estudiar cursos
de primetos auxilios.
El curso estipulado para la comunidad de Brandon, el mi6r-
coles 19 de enero, estA basado en CPR y primeros auxilios
para infants; constant de cinco horas y media, comienza de
9:00 am. y culmina a las 2:30 pm. El lugar serd en la Cruz Roja

de la Hoya, boxeador a tus
guantes, porque si hay algo
que este pfigil hispano sabe
hacer bien es dar un buen
golpe, incluso si se trata de un
derechazo publicitario. "iLos
Angeles me deja K.O.!", afirma
el boxeador.
Y como no s61o de cultural

De la Hoya se permit reco-

El TPS Ha Sido Extendido


La semana pasada, el go-
biemo de los Estados Unidos
anunci6 que prorrogaria elTPS
para los salvadorefios. El TPS
es la protecci6n provisional que
se le da a los ciudadanos natu-
rales de ciertos paises resi-
dentes en los Estados Unidos.
Esta protecci6n se les otorga a
personas provenientes de
paises donde han ocurrido
desastres naturales o con-
mociones political de gran
proporci6n. En febrero de
2001, un fuerte terremoto
sacudi6 a El Salvador y gran
parte den Am6rica Central.
Este terremoto caus6 cuan-
tiosos dafios en ese pais.
Todavia, la mitad de los damni-
ficados no han reconstruido
sus casas y la economic conti-
nia deprimida. Por esta raz6n
los EE.UU. determinaron que
se deberia extender el TPS a los
salvadorefios por 18 meses
mds, hasta el 9 de septiembre
de 2006.
El proceder es muy seme-
jante a lo de los nicaragoienses
y hondurefios. El plazo que
dieron para acogerse a esta
prorroga es de 60 dias. Este
plazo corre desde el 7 de enero
pasado hasta el martes, 8 de
marzo pr6ximo. Y como lo hice
con los nicaraguenses y los
hondurefios, les advierto a los
salvadorefios que aunque la
prorroga es de 18 meses, el





L keeCa ~


tiempo para renovar o volver a
registrarse para la TPS es no
mas de estos 60 dias.
eC6mo se vuelve a regis-
trar uno? Ya no es como era
antes. Ciertas cosas han cam-
biado. Llenen los dos formu-
larios: 1-821 (para la TPS) y el I-
765 (para el permiso de trabajo)
aunque aunque no vaya a
trabajar y no necesite el per-
miso de trabajo. De cualquier
manera, no pague el 1-821, pero
si quiere renovar su permiso de
trabajo, incluya un money or-
der de $175 (haga los cheques
o "money orders" a favor a "U.
S. Treasury"). Toda persona
mayor de 14 afios tendrdn que
pagar, adicionalmente, $70
para las huellas digitales. No
hay que mandar fotos.
Es important que llene los
formularios con cuidado y que
contest todas las preguntas.
Si no aplica la pregunta a su
caso o situaci6n, ponga "N/A"
en el espacio dedicado para la
respuesta a la pregunta en el
tormulario. 01 no nay o no
tiene lo que le piden, ponga
"NONE" en el espacio. Acu6r-
dese que en la parte de la
primer pagina arriba de la I-
821, marca la cajita donde dice
que estA renovando su TPS. En
el formulario del permiso de
trabajo, donde le pide colocar
el c6digo de la ley pertinente,
ponga:(a)(12), y arriba de esto
ponga, "TPS". Otro cambio de
suma importancia es la direc-
ci6n donde se envian los for-
mularios. Ya no se manda a


Texas. La nueva direcci6n es
la siguiente:/ US CIS / Attn:
TPS El Salvador /P. O. Box 87-
583 /Chicago, IL 60680-0583
La otra alternative es que
pueden volver a registrarse
"online" en el websitee" de la
Inmigraci6n (www.uscis.gov).
Pero much cuidado, porque
como les habia advertido an-
tes, los errors no se perdonan
cuando usted hace sus tra-
mites "online". Usted podria
perder todo su dinero con un
error.
Si usted es salvadoreiio y
era esposo de un salvadoreiio
cuando se registry por primera
vez y quien sigue teniendo la
TPS, usted posiblemente pue-
de registrarse ahora de forma
tardia. Tendria que haber
estado aqui en los Estados
Unidos, el dia 13 de febrero de
2001, y haber estado aqui con-
tinua-mente desde el 9 de
marzo del mismo afio. Si no,
no puede hacer el registro
tardio. O sea, no basta con
ser esposo o hijo de una per-
sona con la TPS; usted tiene
que ser salvadorefio y haber
estado aqui desde esas fechas.

guntas a:/ Preguntas de Inmi-
graci6n /Catholic Charities /

difusi6n del espacio, como es-
pacio para el arte. "Todos
aquellos grupos que se est6n
formando, que necesiten un
espacio para ensayar; cual-
quier organizaci6n que consi-
dere que puede contactarnos
para desarrollar programs
educativos, ingl6s como segun-
do idioma o computaci6n, en-
tre otras; quiero informal que
tenemos las computadoras, lo
que necesitamos es alguna
instituci6n que se acerque y
nos ofrezca instructors, es de-
cir gente, que se sumen en es-
te segundo espacio, para asi
crecer juntos ofreciendo ser-
vicios culturales y educativos".
Como tercer punto, reiter6
un lamado a todos los artis-
tas que de alguna manera tie-
nen vinculos con el arte y la
educaci6n, que tambi6n se
acerquen al New Place para in-
tercambiar ideas y crecer jun-
tos. "Tenemos un program ti-
tulado artists en residen-
cias, que son aquellos crea-
tivos que pueden venir a ensa-
yar y promocionar sus progra-
mas. Nosotros le podemos ha-
cer un arreglo y ver c6mo nos
podemos conectar con estu-
diantes de arte, artists que
muchas veces no tienen un
espacio donde desarrollar su
talent. Tambi6n invito a todos
los artists de diferentes dis-
ciplinas, pintores, danza, tea-
tro, a que se sumen a este pro-
yecto tan bonito e interesante;
nos apoyen a preparar y a en-
trenar a tanto talent que te-
nemos".
Ache enfatiz6 sobre la nue-
va idea de organizer a los
artists plasticos para que ten-
gan representaci6n y est6n ca-


nalizados en una organizaci6n
bautizada con el nombre de
"Artistas Americanos: Visio-
nes". "Queremos decirle a today
la familiar en general, sin im-
portar la raza, el color, o doc-
trina religiosa, porque no qub-
remos catequizar a nadie con
ningln tipo de religion, cree-
mos en Dios, somos una orga-
nizaci6n ecum6nica, pero la
idea es poder orientarlos sobre
nuestros programs de alimen-
tos, sobre casas, programs
habitacionales, de juventud,
tantas cosas que a trav6s del
centro metodista podemos
hacer".
"No Queremos Dinero"
Un mensaje que enfatiz6
esta promotora cultural, hacia
los padres, "es que no quere-
mos dinero. Les decimos a los
padres que se sientan libres
de llevar a sus hijos, no es
necesario que paguen nada,
porque estamos subsidiados.
Si alguien puede colaborar y
quiere dar una donaci6n serd
bienvenida, pero no pedimos
que paguen por nuestros ser-
vicios. Lo finico que si exigi-
mos es el compromise del pa-
dre para que comparta con su
hijo en el centro".
Explic6 que el afio 2004 ce-
rraron actividades con un to-
Stal de 80 nifios yj6venes, quie-
nes participaron en classes de
pintura, dibujo, teatro, danza

Explic6 Pucher en su visit a la Universidad del Sur de la

La Trinacria
Ciao a tutti,e benvenuti alla Pagina
Italiana.
Oggi vorrei soffermarmi a scrivere
circa il simbolo che da sempre e stato
1'Ambasciatore ufficiale della Sicilia, la
cosidetta Trinacria.
Da quando sono arrivato a Tampa ho
avuto modo di parlare di questo simbolo,
molte persne mi hanno domandato il
significato di tale imagine o cosa esat-
tamente rappresenta.
Per me questa imagine rappresenta
tanto la Sicilia che ne ho ordinata una
dinta in ceramic grande 1 square yard
e l'ho fatta installare nel fondo della
mia piscina.


Junqueavendo fatto qualche ricerca
sono arrivato alla conclusion del vero


significato di tale imagine.
Il primo nome che ebbe l'attuale Si-
cilia fu SICANIA.
Questa denominazione si riferiva ai
primi abitanti, SICULI e SICANI.
Il nome dell' Isolasi trova sin nei po-
emi Omerici, (nell' ODISSEAla Sicilia e'
chiamata THRINAKIE, che significava
Isola a forma di tridente, nome succes-
sivamente mutato in TRINAKRIA, che
vuol dire Isola dai tre promontori, e
cioe': (Capo Peloro a Nord-Est (Messina),
(Capo Boe'o o Lilibe'o a Ovest (Mar-
sala), Capo Passero o Capo Spartivento
a Sud-Est.
Successivamente il-nome divenne
Trinacria: nomee adoperato anche da
Dante Alighieri nella Divina Commedia)'
che la tradizione classic interpreto'
come riferimento alla forma triangolare
dell' Isola.
Ma il nome Sicilia presto prevalse a
designare 1' intera Isola e duro' inalter-
ato fino ad oggi.
***** *
SICANI: Nome attribuito a un'antica
popolazione della Sicilia occidentale.
Non appartenenti al grande raggrup-
pamento indo-europeo, la loro origine
e' ignota.
SICULI: Nome attribuito agli antichi
abitanti della Sicilia orientale.
Provenienti dalla penisola italica,
sono considerati di stirpe vicina a quella
latina.

and to following the process.

Our very good friend Willie
Garcia was hospitalized on Janu-
ary 2 at Tampa General Hospital
from a stroke. He was improving
until last weekend when he suf-
fered another stroke. He is now in
intensive care and we wish him a
full and speedy recovery

County Commissioner. Ronda
Storms led the discussion to in-
crease the top salary of County
Commission aides from $61,630 to
$77,292. One reason she gave to
justify the increase was that aides
have to "suffer the slings and ar-
rows from a variety of sources ..."
We found her logic very curious
since Commissioner Storms often
uses sharp language to criticize
the high pay of government of-
ficials at the different authorities
like HARTline, the Port Authority
and the Sports Authority. Having
to suffer her slings and arrows
certainly deserves high compen-
sation.
We do agree that aides deserve
greater compensation since they
deal with the public, have a broad
understanding of county govern-
ment and in many cases serve
as surrogate commissioners in
solving constituents' problems,
especially when some commis-
sioners are never in their office,
as in the case of Commissioner
Ken Hagan. Since he -doesn't do
his job, we. figure his aides must
pick up the slack, but in this case
we would want any increase in
the pay of his aides to be matched
with a decrease in his pay. By the
way, the vote to increase the top
salaries of commission aides was 6
to 0. Ken Hagan was absent from
the vote.

The Tampa Police Department
wants to buy $442,058.88 worth
of tasers. How shocking!
*****
During a meeting on Saturday
with Raul Roa Kouri, the Cuban
ambassador to the Vatican, Pope
John Paul II made the following
statement: "The Holy See wishes
ardently that the obstacles that
currently impede free communica-
tion and exchange between Cuba
and the international community
may be overcome as soon as possi-
ble, thus consolidating, by means
of respectful and open dialogue
among all, the conditions neces-
sary for genuine development."
This statement is a reiteration
of the Pope's continued opposition
to the U.S. embargo on Cuba.
*****
The visioning process for Ybor
City has taken the form of a power
point presentation that compiles
the public input and reports on
areas of consensus. It points out
Ybor's strengths and weaknesses.
It states goals and guiding prin-
ciples for Ybor's future and makes
suggestions on what improve-
ments are needed to enhance Ybor
City.
This presentation.will be shown
to the Ybor City Development
Corporation, Tampa City Council
and the Mayor. Their input will
be recorded and the vision plan
will be modified to incorporate
their input.
We have not been a fan of this


process since it began and frankly
have given it little chance to suc-
ceed as a useful tool. After review-
ing the presentation we feel it did
not address solutions for some of
the major problems looming over
the future ofYbor City.
The visioning plan did not pro-
vide a plan to end the perception
that Ybor City is a dangerous area
to visit. It did not give a clear vi-
sion on whether Ybor City's future
is brighter as a Historic Tourist or
an Entertainment District or if
Ybor should be both; how will the
two coexist? The vision plan com-
pletely punted on the issue of too
many bars in Ybor City and in our
opinion bar owners had too much
input in the visioning process.
Some of the plan's suggestions
we found contradictory and ri-
diculous. One major concern was
convenient parking but the plan
would eliminate the surface park-
ing lots on 8th Avenue and replace
them with a parking garage next
to the sheriff's office. The surface
lots are the most convenient park-
ing areas for lunchtime customers
of the restaurants on 7th Avenue
between 18th and 19th streets.
This change would kill their
businesses. The parking garage
would work well for night time
and bar and club patrons but
lunch patrons shy away from such
parking.
The plan would have Centro
Ybor tear down the building that
houses Adobe Gilas and Fresh
Mouth and two retail shops and
the second story pedestrian bridg-
es that connect the east and west
side of Centro Ybor in order to
create a large open area to serve
as Ybor City's main civic square.
Centro Ybor is struggling and the
plan is to have them displace four
tenants for an open area that will
provide little income. Oh, and by
the way, taxpayers are to support
and pay for this renovation on
private property.
The plan admits that Ybor's
historic buildings and ethnic cul-
ture are some of its best strengths
but in the plan height restrictions
would be removed for new con-
struction, which could ruin the
historic look of the district. The
plan would have the public spend
a lot of money making a 7th Ave-
nue entrance for Centennial Park..
We don't know why since there is
nothing to do at Centennial Park
once you get there.
The big issues of parking, pub-
lic perception, high rent and the
lack of things to do during the day
remain unresolved.
This plan is as well conceived as
the Bush plan to rebuild Iraq.

Congratulations to Debbie
Carter on being promoted to Hills-
borough County Sheriff's Office
public information officer. It's
about time someone recognized
her talents, skills and depth of
knowledge of the Sheriff's Office.
She started working for the Public
Information Office in 1986 when it
was run by the very capable Jack
Espinosa. She has trained many
of her bosses over the years. This
is the first time a woman has held
this position with the Hillsbor-
ough County Sheriff's Office.

County Commissioner Brian
Blair brought up the issue of
eliminating the Tampa Sports


r~4iby PATRICK


Authority (TSA) to deflect talk
of limiting gifts to county com-
missioners during last week's
commission meeting. He has no
idea what he is talking about so
we thought we'd list some of the
problems with his idea, but first
we must make a disclaimer that
I am.the vice chairman of the TSA
and have been a member for six
years. I attend all the meetings
without pay and I attended all the
games without paying.
With that said, let's get to the
point:
The TSA is a creation of the
state Legislature and was formed
to lure professional sports to this
area.
The TSA enables the county
and city to partner in bond issues
to build facilities that lue teams
to call Tampa home. Without the
TSA,, the city and county would
not be able to act as partners
because they don't get along. The
TSA prevents endless fights be-
tween the two governments over
trivial issues.
Eliminating the TSA would
give the Buccaneers a $200,000
a year property tax break. The
TSA still owns i:parts of Raymond
James Stadium that the Bucs use
for team space and must pay prop-
erty taxes on. If the county takes
over ownership of these parcels
they become nontaxable.
Brian Blair thinks -the TSA
only manages three golf courses.
He forgets that the TSA runs Ray-
mond James Stadium. TSA em-
ploys over 1,000 people to handle
parking, security, tickets, seating
and emergency medical services
at 12 major events a year. The
TSA employs 600 people to run
six medium events a year and 25
people to handle 30 small events
over the course of a year at Ray-
mond James.
Commissioner Blair believes
that the county's parks and rec-
reation department can run Ray-
mond James Stadium without
a significant increase in that
department's management staff.
Does he also believe wrestling is
real?
Commissioner Blair says the
county can run the golf courses.
He might want to ask the mayor
about that one since the city owns
the courses and wants the TSA to
manage them.
The TSA operates the best run
stadium in the nation. The staff is
courteous, the stadium is clean,
maintenance is kept.up, and the
field is voted the best in the league
year after year. The NFL has told


the TSA our security procedures
are the best in the league. We
have hosted three Super Bowls
and can expect more due to the
staff's professionalism. Running
a stadium requires specific, skills,
knowledge and a commitment
to excellence, qualities that the
TSA has demonstrated year after
year. We can guarantee the county
could not equal the job done by the
TSA. Look at some of the county's
roads, buildings and parks and
you will see what we mean.
The TSA's name is on eight
bond issues. There is likely to be
a significant cost to modify these
bonds.
Currently, the county must
pay two-thirds-and the city one-
third of any shortfall occurred by
the TSA. If the TSAis eliminated,
the Bucs' contract makes both
the city and county 100 percent
liable for any shortfalls, which
-increases the exposure for both
governments.
*****
Right after the hurricanes,
.FEMA was praised for its fast
reaction to Florida's needs. The
agency was quick to write checks
to people who experienced dam-
age so they could start to repair
their lives. During this process
politicians were quick to encour-
age more speed in delivering help
to their constituents. Now that all
the money has been handed out
and the pain of the hurricanes has
started to fade in some areas these
same politicians are lining up to
criticize FEMA for giving money
to people who made fraudulent
claims. We find these politicians'
indignation disingenuous. The
.best way FEMA has to protect
against fraud is to slow the pro-
cess down in order to do more de-
tailed investigations. This would
be horrible for those who have
valid claims and need the money
now. The process cannot be fast
and flawless. So long as speed is
paramount mistakes will be made
and these politicians know this.

Never Underestimate the Power of the Blog


During the 13 years my
husband held office in our Lilli-
putian beach town, I let escape
no public peep about the city's
vile politics.
My Mantrap Marital-Advice
Coven consulted its dog-eared
copies of Disraeli and Glad-
stone and cautioned silence to
preserve my marriage. So I ac-
ceded to my spouse's chivalric
instructions, "Stay the hell out
of City Hall."


Imagine my enchantment
when he quit his mayor's
job, tiring of the malice of the
Mayberry Madeira Beach Ma-
chiavellis. He stomped in one
day from one of those gripe
fests that pass for government
deliberations and said, "I am
sick of this f-ing job!"
"Then quit, dear," quoth I,
never mentioning my hidden
agenda to mount the first blog
in beach history to lay bare

the political pustule that is

crowed, would be the Political

Beth Scionti McClain and
I had visited bloggers in the
nosebleed section of the-Boston
Democratic National Conven-
tion: sharp young people gen-
erous in sharing knowledge.
Blogging, trendy name for
home page, involves writing
your opinion in a web log, I was
already in blog mode. Writing
my opinions I do in my sleep.
I construct 'home pages-or
could until I forgot html code
and had to relearn from HTML
for Dummies.
Hence, after my husband
departed mayor's job and as-
sumed TV fetal-position Stra-
tolounger posture to watch
football, reruns of Mash, and
fishing shows (fishing shows!
If it were needlepointing or
opera, I could understand. But
fishing shows?), I hive blogged
away. This week I launch
my Madeira Beach Mayberry
Machiavellis Blog, whether
the beaches find that circum-
stance delightsome or not.
Alas, this MBMM Blog de-
lays launching my La Gaceta
Grammar Grinch Blog. Gram-
mar addicts 'must contain
themselves until it reifies anon.
Week One Launch belongs to
grammar mess-up Commis-
sioner Blair. Week Two goes to
Columnist Steve Otto. Gram-
mar-offender lines stretch to
Plant City.
Not so immersed in blogging
as to fail civic duty, I got in a
lick at posturing twits at the'
SPTimes:
SPT Editorial hypocrites:
My husband cut out your
"Unbought and Unbossed" for
me. What a piece of piffle.
In it you perform gender-
neutralization tippytoe around
Shirley Chisholm.
In-plain-view masthead
misogyny makes obligatory
your ignoring Chisholm's sex
to caterwaul about her Black


oppression. You can't condemn
sexism with a straight face:
your masthead shows you
practice it.
Chisholm said Black men
were as-sexistas White men.
I offer.beauty-parlor friend-of-
the-court confirmation:
A discouraging number of
Black men in the Tampa Bay
Area who achieve a sliver of
success acquire one or two
whitey's-world-bleached-blond
mistresses as status symbols.
Some of these paramours
dressed Beach Park women's
hair where I got hair cuts
when I lived in Tampa. They
didn't scruple to entertain
clients with sexual vagaries of
their corridors-of-power Black
boyfriends. Monika should
have attended these graduate-
course seminars.
This was pre-Viagra era; I
am: sure the hairdresser sirens'
recitals would have gained in
hilarity from the erectile-dys-
function'romance aids now
ubiquitously marketed on
Super Bowl TV by men who
stage FCC hissy fits of show-
biz virtue at Janet Jackson's
fleeting nipple.
I wore my Chisholm-for-
president button until it rusted
off my chest. I sported it at a
reception for the president of
my husband's company. This
C-student corporate fop said
to me, "Aw, c'mon! You've got
to be kidding!" I riposted, "No,
Chisholm is the best man for
the job." I represented no as-
set to my husband's career,
but with three daughters, he
never objected to my work for
women's rights.
Your redundant comma.
after "office," ninth line from
top of this piece of editorial
hypocrisy, splits a compound
predicate adjective. Women
would never get away with
such illiterate comma maul-
ing. Only men, wrapped in
cotton wadding of good-ol'-boy
perpetual affirmative-action
plans for dumb white guys,
could slide by on a shoeshine
and a dime and a hey nonny
nonny with such punctuation
pratfalls in plain view.
lee drury de cesare
YS: Only one Latin name
appears on the masthead. Oh,
. no, don't tell us: There's anti-
Hispanic sentiment prowling
the good-ol'-dumb-white-boys-
halls there too? How about
anti-Semitism? I bet that's en-
demic. And don't even mention


homophobia. Until you feature
masthead gays, I infer that you
force them to remain in the
closet without partner benefits.
Make a fool of me by saying you
provide partner benefits.
Forward: Ms. Pat Bean:
Ma'am, would you send thts
Tampa-Bay-Week email to
Ms. Castor and my girlfriend
Ronda? I have raised enough
Cain to get the attention of
the WEDU sexists about hav-
ing equal numbers of female
guests in the Tampa Bay Week
boys' locker room. I suspect
my unseemly behavior caused
the two women's balancing two
men last Friday. But the min-
ute one turns one's back, the
boys snap back to y-chromo-
some guest list. The SPTimes
masthead coaches them on
sexism.
I request that Cathy. and
Ronda ask their women SWC
appointees to send a list of
women Tampa-Bay- Week
candidates to the head of the
station, not to the subordinate
bootlickers. I forget the head's
name: something like Percy
Dovetonsils. The decorous
SWC paragons do not have
to allude to me; I know that I
am a despised Fallen Feminist
who wears scarlet petticoats
and whom Rhett visits on dull
nights. Wasn't this GWTW
prostitute with the heart of
gold Belle? I liked her. Belle
wasas good as Melanie and not
as dull. Well-behaved women
rarely make history. lee drury
de cesare
On a slow day, I slapped
around a smartassed sexist
Nigel for saying Sharon Stone
had "nice tits":
"Tits," you say. Now that
puts you in the antediluvian-
sexist category. Any fellow who
wants to look au courant in
demeaning the food source for
the young of the human race
knows that "hooters" is the
with-it terminology. "Knock-
ers" would give your locution a
nice touch of abstruse archaic
sexism. "Jugs" identifies you
as a member of locker-room
lower-quartile sexist louts.
Such superannuated linguistic
faux pas give you away as an
old fart whose chief obsession
is no longer breasts but rheu-
matic joints.
For patriarchal clarity, I
asked my husband for the
most demeaning term for wom-
en's breasts. "Puppies," he
promptly responded, "as in 'Let
those puppies breathe'"
Help me, Jesus, Allah, and
Buddha to redeem women
from their status as mere body
parts. You pitch in too, Mary.
I'm tired of collaborator women
getting afree ride in this strug-
gle for women's dignity.

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.
If you would like to contact
Ferdie send an email to him at:

The bloody Spanish Civil
War was coming to an end in
1938 as Franco's National-
ist Army pushed, the reeling
Loyalist forces into the Medi-
terranean. The last organized
.defense was around Barcelona
where the remnants of the
Loyalist Army and thousands
of political refugees were com-
pressing into an unruly des-
perate mob.
Pablo Picasso, a sometimes
Communist supporter, has
contributed more to the Loyal-
ist cause, by remaining safely
tucked away in Paris than by
fighting in Spain. The greatest
propaganda coup of the war
was scored by Picasso when he
created a searing modernistic
masterpiece on the occasion of
the bombing of Guernica.
The disturbing condemna-
tion of the ruthless bombing of
an unarmed village on Market
Day helped solidify the world
opinion against Franco's Fas-
cist troops and their German
Condor Legion, a group of
Nazi airmen trying out new air
techniques in preparation for
a bigger war.
Pablo Picasso, no stranger
to the press, knew how to milk
a good thing and scored heav-
ily in the press with scathing
wisecracks.
When the German Em-
bosser in Paris came to see
the horrifying painting, he was
shocked. He asked Picasso.
"Did you do this terrible
thing?"
"No, you did," said Picasso,
and the world press ran the
story.
Then, scanning the picture
closely, the Nazi said, "You
didn't sign the painting."
"No, it's signed in the blood
of Spain," said Picasso, mind-
ful of another quote to feed his
growing reputation.
So it was not with elation
one day in the Spring of 1938
when Picasso received an ur-
gent wire from Barcelona. His
mother was dying and calling
for him. He must come. There
was little time left.
Of course, Picasso began to
pack, but his manager and his
family pointed out that there
was a big price on his head.
Franco would be very pleased
to .capture him and execute
him in public.
Loyalist Officers sent to
escort him assured him that
an express train had been laid
on for him from Paris through
the Pyrenees and directly to
Barcelona. He was assured
that Barcelona would be held
until 1939 when a negotiated
peace would be signed saving
the Loyalist Army from impris-
onment and the politicians
from execution. Blinded by his
love for his mother, Picasso
agreed.
The train arrived in Barce-
lona as scheduled, without a
hitch, but then things started
to go wrong. The train station


was a heap of, rubble; the air
raid that had destroyed it was
still in progress. Pablo Picasso
looked up into the sky to see
tri-motored bombers lumber-
ing overhead, dropping little
eggs that turned into mush-
rooming black clouds. He was
terrified and as he was rushed
to the shelter he began to curse
his decision. Surely the same
Express Train could have been
used to bring his mother to
Paris.
When the raid was over he
was taken to the Intelligence
Headquarters where he found
that his mother's hospital and
her house had been leveled and
that she had been moved to the
South to a quiet village.
While this was a safe area,
it nonetheless possessed the
danger of being closer to the
front. Picasso was assured
that there was no activity in
that front, and none likely to
start up since the village was
small and of no strategic im-
portance.
"Neither was Guernica,"
said Picasso as he got into his
Hispano-Suiza staff car and
headed for the front.

The trip quickly turned into
a nightmare. The roads were
jammed with refugees and
remnants of the Loyalist Army,
all of whom seemed hell bent
on reaching the Pyrenees and
the safety of France.
Picasso quickly saw that the
huge 12 cylindered Hispano-
Suiza was a detriment. There
was no room on the roads, and
soon he abandoned the vehicle
and started to walk. The going
was tough.
At the first village he came
to he went to the Army Head-.
quarters who let him have a
motorcycle with a sidecar and
a driver who knew the back
roads and was fearless in an
open field. Reluctantly, Picasso
got in the side car holding a
wheel of cheese and a big bottle
of red wine.
So much time had elapsed
by the time he got into the
village where his mother was
hospitalized that he knew in
his bones that he was too late.
On arriving, at the small Clinic
he was sent to the Church
where her remains lay await-
ing him.
The Church was abandoned
and desecrated by the Commu-
nist troops, the priest nailed
to the door and bayoneted,
and the nuns raped and shot.
The charred remains of Christ
on the cross looked down on
the simple pine box. Two large
thick candles gave the ravished
church a ghostly look.
Picasso shivered. "All of this
effort and danger for nothing,"
he said to his driver.
"No, Maestro, not for noth-
ing. You get to bury her in the
Church-gtounds."
Picasso nodded absently.
Since becoming rich and world
famous he had quit menial
tasks in his day to day world.
Other people took care of
the details of daily life. Pi-
casso painted. He was in the
vanguard of the Modernist
Movement. He personified the
Avante Guard. He was above
daily tasks.
Suddenly, the world of real-
ity came crashing into his life.
An artillery shell exploded in
the square. A donkey and cart
were blown into the air. Pieces


of human beings flew in all
directions. A legless, armless
torso and head landed in a tree
and hung there. Another shell
landed. Then another.
"Ai, cono," said the driver,
putting on his gloves. "I got
to go."
"Go? Where? You've got to
help me bury the dead," Pi-
casso said desperately.
"Perdoname, Jefe, but I got
to worry about the living. In
this case, me."
"But, what is happening?"
Picasso's orderly brain could
not fathom what was going on
in his new world of violence.
"Those were artillery shells.
No airplanes."
"So?"
"So it means the National-
ists are less than five miles
away and there is nothing I
know of between them and us,
which means you stay and you
get captured." The driver pulled
his goggles over his eyes.
"But I was assured..." sput-
tered Picasso.
"In this war, never believe
anything you are assured
about ..." The driver cranked
up the motorcycle. "You com-
ing?"
""Vaya con Dios, if there is
a Dios.".The driver sped off in
a roar, dodging the corpses
that littered the street, leaving
a bewildered Picasso standing
in the doorway of the church,
open mouthed.

Picasso worked all afternoon
with a pickax and a shovel.
The ground was hard and
filled with rocks. Although he
was well muscled and barrel-
chested, Picasso was unused
to manual labor and he found
the simple act of digging a six
foot hole a daunting task. As
the hours wore on he began
to shorten his objective. Four
feet would be deep enough. He
tied his handkerchief around
his hand, which had blistered
and was now bleeding.
The shelling had stopped.
The village was burning. In
the far hills Picasso saw the
advance elements of.the Na-
tionalists walking slowly, me-
thodically down the dirt road
leading to the town.
Panic seized him. He ran
to the church, found a cart,
bribed two deserters with the
wheel of cheese and the wine
to load the casket on the cart
and the three men pushed and
pulled the cart through the
debris to the outskirts of town
where the cemetery and the
grave awaited.
They put the coffin by the
side of the grave as an artillery
shell crashed into the cem-
etery, throwing up tombstones,
old caskets and bones.
"Ai cono!" said the deserter,
wide-eyed in fear.
"The other, more in control
of himself, looked in the direc-
tion from whence the shell
came and crossed himself.
"Look, an 88 ... and look
down the road ... Moors ...
those look like Moors ..." he
said in a strangled voice; and
at the sound of the word Moors
they both took off down the
road, headed North for Bar-
celona.
Picasso had come this far
and he meant to bury his
mother. He took hold of one
end of the. pine box and in-
tended to slip it into the hole
and try to shovel as much dirt

on top of it as he could before
he had to flee to avoid the
dreaded Moors.
Another shell landed close
by, its concussion threw Pi-
casso and the box into the
grave. The box splintered and
Picasso gave a horrified cry as
he found himself face to face
with a ghastly face of an old
man in a military uniform.
"Where is my mother?" he
screamed again and again at-
the corpse.
Picasso crumbled in a heap.
What was happening to him?
What did this all mean? Where
was his mother? Was she still
alive?
Picasso felt a shower of
dirt and stones hitting his red
beret. He put up his hands to
shield his eyes. He saw a black
shadow fall across the shat-
tered casket.
The ugly face of a National-
ist Captain was looking down
on him. Beside him was a
tough looking scarred face of
an Arab sergeant, and behind
them four Moorish riflemen.
"Ah, a grave robber," said
the Arab.
"No, no. I've come to bury
my mother and I dug this grave
myself."
The Captain made a big
display of looking at the corpse.
He laughed a harsh laugh that
sounded like a bark.
"I don't believe you. Unless,
of course, your mother is a
Loyalist colonel." He laughed
aloud and the Moors smiled.
One fingered his long curved
knife.
Scared out of his wits, Pi-
casso decided to pull himself
together and act like the world
famous important figure he

was.
"Regrettably, you are right,
as I just found out. I was told
the casket contained my moth-
er's remains. I have come from
Paris to see her, but I arrived
too late."
"Paris? In France? You came
that far? You must have a lot
of pull with the Reds." The con-
versation was taking a danger-
ous turn. "Who are you?"
"I am Pablo Picasso," he said
proudly.
"La gran mierda (some big
deal)!" said the Captain. "Are
you a Red politician?"
"No Sir, I am an artist. A
painter. The most famous
painter in the world."
"So, como no, and I am the
Prince of Wales."
"Sir, I am Pablo Picasso. I
am without a doubt the best
and most famous painter in
the world."
"And the most modest one."
The Captain snapped an order
to the four Moors, who pulled
Picasso from the grave roughly.
"Lock him up. Today we round
up and shoot the Mayor, city
council and all the politicians
and professionals. They are all
Reds, por supuesto. Tomorrow
we round up the degenerate
artists. Musicians, writers,
philosophers, poets and ..." he
paused to give Picasso a dirty
look, ". ..phony artists/painters
as well."
Picasso, in spite of his fear,
swelled, up with pride. Phony
artist? He, the leader of the
Modernist movement, the cre-
ator of the masterpiece Guer-
nica, a phony painter?
"See here, Captain, I de-
mand to prove to you who I
am."-A Moor slapped him hard.

The 9th Annual Junior Latin American Fiesta Queen Gabrielle Toselli re-

Queen Jennifer Gallo, the 1st Latin American Fiesta King Anthony Ciucio

across the face, cutting his lip.
"Silencio," he said. The Captain
laughed.
"Yes, we'll see," he said and
led the group into the village
and headed for the jail.
The jail was packed with
desperate men all to share a
common fate. By dawn the next
day they would all be dead.
Some railed against God and
their fate, some cried, some
stood mute, resigned to their
fate. There were.none among
them who thought they would
be spared. None, that is, ex-
cept for Pablo Picasso. Not
even Franco was big enough
to shoot Pablo Picasso, the
greatest Spanish painter who
ever lived. "I am even greater
than Velasquez. Greater than
El Greco, greater than Goya!"
When the-Captain had
heard enough he signaled the
Moor and he slapped Picasso
hard across the face. Pablo fell
stunned to the stone floor. The
others moved away from him,
expecting the Captain to shoot
him then and there. Picasso
stretched and passed out.
Night had fallen when Pi-
casso came to. The packed
room was now almost empty.

him to the wall so Pablo could
sit up leaning his back against
the rough rocks.
"Are you really Picasso?"
gushed the boy.
"Si, and you?" Pablo tried to
focus his eyes.
"A poet. A friend of Garcia
Lorca," the boy gushed.
"He's dead, isn't he?"
"Yes, shot at the beginning
of all of this. The beast shot
him more because he was a
pajarito then for his poetry."
The boy had a tear in his eyes.
"So, you see, I don't stand a
chance either." His delicate
hands fluttered.
"Mala suerte (tough luck)!"
The door opened and two
Moors dragged Picasso out of
the door.
"Goodbye, Maestro, it was
an honor to die with you." The
boy seemed thrilled by the
event.
"Ai, cono," Picasso muttered
and walked down the dark
dank hall toward the jailer's
office, hastened along by hard
kicks in the rear end.
The Captain had loosed his
collar, taken off his tunic and
hung his pistol belt on a hat
rack. He was drinking a bran-
dy. Taking Picasso by surprise
he handed him a cup.
"Now then Mister-painter,
the time has come for you to
prove to me you are the painter
you say you are. Headquarters
is interested to know if you are
Pablo Picasso, or if you are an
imposter, a loyalist deserter,
which is what I think you
are."
."Prove it? How? You have all
my papers."
"My dear fellow, the proof
is simple. I have paper, pencil,
pen, black ink. You have but
to render my likeness. If you
are who you' say you are, it
should not be difficult for you
to render me to perfection. My
eyes will tell me whether you
can paint."
"The world is filled with art
critics," said Pablo.
SPablo Picasso felt a wave
of relief and elation pass over
him. Paint this snot, this pig
of a man? Why, he'll knock
his eyes out of his head. Then
someone with culture and
education and commonsense
will come and save him. Head-
quarters will not want the
world to know that Franco's
government executed the most
important voice in art in the
world.
Picasso arranged several
desk lamps to illuminate the
ugly face; being careful not to
lose any detail in shadow. The
Captain was an ugly man. His
face was round and florid, his
skin pock marked, and he was
bald. He insisted on wearing
his cap, which hid his bald-
ness and showed his rank.
His eyes bulged out, obviously
from a thyroid condition, his
nose was fat and crooked from
having been broken, and his
mouth was hidden by a thick
black mustache. He was not a
pretty picture, but that made
him easier.
Pablo began to sketch, pag-
es flew as he tried different
angles. He meant to produce
a masterpiece. After about
an hour, Pablo assembled his
sketches.
"Let's see what you've
done."
No, Captain, these are my
studies. Now give me a desk
and a light and leave me alone
and I shall produce a master-
piece that you can give your
sons and that will make you
rich."
"He's stalling. The fake can't
draw his breath," said the
Arab, who had come back to
the office.

Three years
ago, Landwirth
founded A Gift for
Teaching of Tam- I
pa Bay, a non-
profit organiza-
tion that collects
school supplies
from the commu-
nity in order to
redistribute them
into the.hands of
the less fortunate
children in Hills-
borough County
whose families
cannot, afford .
to purchase the .
supplies on their
own.

time just putting so much t
food on the table
and keeping a roof
over their family's head. Often,
the teachers themselves pur-
chase these supplies for these
less fortunate students, spend-
ing up to $1,000 a year on
these supplies. Unfortunately,
the teachers in Hillsborough
County don't exactly break the
bank with their paychecks and
spend money they themselves
cannot afford to spend. This
is where Landwirth's baby, A
Gift for Teaching off impa Bay,
steps in.
A Gift for Teaching targets
Title I Schools, those schools
with the highest percentage of
students on the free or reduced
lunch program; some of these
schools have up to 90 percent
of their students on the lunch
program. Over the course of
the year, Landwirth, his three
employees and a host of vol-
unteers collect school supplies
from local businesses and
organizations, such as books
from the libraries, and office
supplies from CVS and the
Tampa Convention Center, and
purchase supplies with gener-
ous donations from the com-
munity, such as a $200,000
donation from the Bank of
America. They then keep these
supplies in a warehouse and
stock them on the shelves of
a store and invite the teach-
ers from the Title I schools to
take for free whatever supplies
they need.
"It's amazing how dedicated
these teachers are," said Land-
wirth. "They go beyond the
call of duty and spend their
own money. Not many other
professionals would do such a
thing, but these teachers love
their students so much they do
it without a complaint.
"The schools do 'provide
the teachers with a budget to
purchase the supplies, but it
is not enough $222 a year
and when you divide that out
by the number of students in
a classroom it equals out to
about a nickel a ,day. If the
teacher saved this nickel up
for an entire week they could


maybe buy a few pencils. Stu-
dents shouldn't have to receive

afford it. Teachers shouldn't
have to spend their own mon-
ey. Hopefully, this program will
eradicate all these problems."
For Landwirth, A Gift for
Teaching of Tampa Bay is not
only the result of his years of
hard work, but the result of his
entire family's hard work.
S Born in Cocoa Beach and
raised in Lakeland, Landwirth
was taught at a young age that
though education is a right, it's
also a privilege.
His father never had the op-
portunity to receive an educa-
tion as a child. A survivor of the
Holocaust, Landwirth's father
spent his youth in Auschwitz
and other concentration camps
rather than school. When
World War II was over and he
was freed, he was homeless
in Europe and without an
education he had little hope
of improving his lot in life. Af-
ter immigrating to the United
States, he was drafted into the
military and using the G.I. Bill
funded a- two year education
in hotel management. Though
this education enabled him
to forge a successful career,
it was not the standard edu-
cation in math, history and
science, he longed to receive.
To Landwirth's father, though
education will help you to earn,
more importantly, it will help
you to learn.
"My father stressed the im-
portance of education on me,
saying knowledge is the one
thing that can never be taken
away," said Landwirth. "He
always said to learn as much
about everything as I could and
to appreciate the opportunity
I had."
Landwirth earned a B.A.
and MBA from Florida State
University and the University
of Tampa respectively, study-
ing both business and comput-
ers. He went on to build a suc-
cessful career in the fields of
computer information recovery
and disaster planning, working
for such corporate giants as

Brothers. He also owned his
own fishing tackle company for
six years, but about five years
ago his heart was being "lured"
by another calling nonprofit
work.
His father was already a
heavy hitter in the
nonprofit world.
About 15 years
ago he founded
the Family Foun-
dation, which
helps to fund
other organiza-
tions that deal
with children's
issues educa-
tion, homeless-
ness, etc.
"He founded
it to combat the
very problems he
had to deal with,"
said Landwirth.

become a reality they lost their
funding. The organization
was dissolved, but Landwirth
refused to allow their dream
to die.
Landwirth's brother had
opened a store for teachers
to find-free school supplies in
Orlando after visiting a similar
store in Ohio. Landwirth had
the right contacts in Hillsbor-
ough County from his work
with the Recycling Taskforce
and his brother was more than
willing to do all he could to
help Landwirth. All he needed
was money to get the project
off the ground, which he soon
received courtesy of the Family
Foundation.
"Everything just seemed to
come full circle," said Land-
wirth, "and a Gift for Teaching
was born."
The store opened in October
2002 and is currently in its
third year of existence, giving
away over $1.25 million worth
of school supplies a year to Hill-
sborough County schools, the
10th largest school district in
the country. His brother's store
in Orlando, which provides
its services to three counties,
gives away $3-4 million worth
of school supplies a year.
Landwirth sees the Hills-
borough County store grow-
ing to the size of his brother's
Orlando store soon. Originally,
Landwirth said the Hillsbor-
ough County store had only
enough support to offer its ser-
vices only to schools with more
than 83 percent of their stu-
dents in free or reduced lunch
programs, which equaled 30
schools in all. Since then, an-
other 30 schools, which have at
least 73 percent of its students
in the free or reduced lunch
program, have been invited
to use the store. Landwirth's
ultimate goal is to continue
to grow to the point where
they can afford to invite every
teacher from every school.

"If you are finished shoot-
ing the Red politicians and
professionals, get a head start
on tomorrow. Take out the
writers and the gay poet andc
shoot them."
"Can I have the poet for to
night?" The Arab leered, and
the Captain gave him a hard
look. "Pervert. One day I'll have
you shot."
The Arab laughed and
walked out of the door wink-
ing at Pablo.
"Make it good, Maestro, or
you'll have the pleasure of my
company tomorrow."
The Captain surprised Pablo
by. putting him in an office
with a good solid desk and a
powerful light. He had even
had a tray of cheese and sau-
sage with red wine put on the
desk.
"Take your time, painter,
this may well be the last pic-
ture you produce. Or, if you
are the phony I think you are,
it is possible the first picture
you paint."
Pablo Picasso, now on his
turf, now sure of himself,
smiled.
"Take your time. We have
a lot of your friends to shoot
tonight." The Capitan barked
a harsh laugh.
He closed the door and Pi-
casso fell on the big square of
white paper. The first try was
perfection: a photograph. No
camera could have caught the
Captain's soul like Pablo did.
He looked at it for a long time. -
A revolution of the soul was
taking place within his psyche.
Surging from deep. inside his
creative center came a revul-
sion, a desire to create a "real"
Picasso, to discard any phony
representational Art Academy
portrait. Any idiot copyist from
the Prado could satisfy the fat
pig. More to the point, only
Picasso could paint a Picasso.
Perhaps this peasant would
not understand it, but higher
headquarters would, and in
the end, when all was said
and done, he was Picasso, the
leader of the Avante Garde, the
innovator who was changing
art in the Twentieth Century, a
man whose vision had opened
new vistas in art.
Paint a portrait? A pho-
tograph? A likeness? Never!
Never in hell.
Not Picasso. He fell to the
task and worked with renewed
fury, feeling the flush of inspi-
ration, feeling the power within
him ... he was the Bull, the
man-bull, the Minotaur. No
one could control his vital life
force, and the ink flew onto the
paper and wished for, yearned
for, his oils. He needed color.
Needed his Viridian Reds and
the dark Prussian Blues.
And soon he was finished
and sat back exhausted as the
Captain came in and held the
painting in his hand. "What is
this crap?"
"I knew it! He is a fraud!"
The Captain took the painting
and flung it across the room.
The stiff paper caused it to fly
like a missile out of the door.
"I'll have you shot first thing
in the morning! You creep. You
degenerate liar. Pablo Picasso
indeed, you abscess, you lying
turd." The Captain was almost
frothing at the mouth and so
apoplectic that the Arab Ser-
geant had to step into the hall
with his four Moors who were
laughing so hard they had to


lean on the walls for support.
Pablo Picasso was no longer
afraid to die. He had his chance
to live, but he would not com-
promise his greatness. His last
act might have to be his por-
trait of the fat Captain. Well,
then, so be it. He would go out
with a fine original Picasso in
his hand.
"I believe you dropped this,
Captain." An icy voice came
from a tall Colonel who stepped
through the door, handing the
Captain the portrait.
"You should thank Mr. Pi-
casso, Captain. He has just
made you a rich man. This
original Picasso will take care
of you and your family for
life. If you hold on to it, it will
probably eventually -be worth
a million."
"Pesitas?" the captain asked
in a hushed voice.
"Dollars," said the Captain,
extending his hand to Picasso.
"A thousand pardons, Maestro.
The vagaries of war. I hope you
did not have too bad a time
and will forgive the Captain his
ignorance."
"I never have luck with art
critics," smiled Picasso, feel-
ing safe for the first time since
he crossed the Pyrenees. "I'm
afraid you have me at a disad-
vantage. You know my name,
but I don't know yours."
""Ah yes. I am Colonel Silvio
de la Parte de Gomez y Dali."
'Dali?" Pablo's ears perked
up.
"The same. You owe your life
to your biggest rival, Salvador
Dali, my nephew."
"He saved me? How could
he? He is in Paris and hates
the ground I walk on."
"Ah, exactly. The little snot
has become an embarrassment
to the family. He dresses like
a circus clown, has the man-
ners of a pimp and a gigolo and
pretends to be the leader of the
Modernist movement in Art
when anyone with taste and
knowledge knows that there is
only one master, Picasso."
All of this caught Picasso by
surprise and he sat down hard
on the leather chair.
"If this lout had shot you
this morning I'm afraid Dali
would be hailed as the new
leader. I detest the little fun-
gus, but admit his perverted
talent. When I heard you were
caught in. our net, I broke all
regulations to get here. You
may consider yourself saved.
History will thank me."
"I am overwhelmed with
gratitude. What can I do to
repay you?"
"In the time we have left,
you can do a sketch of me and
sign it."
Picasso took his sketch
board and rendered a perfect,
accurate representation of the
face of the handsome courtly
Colonel and signed it lavishly.
The Colonel took the sketch
and tore it up in front of a sur-
prised Picasso.
"I said I wanted an original
Picasso, not an art student's
sketch."
Picasso smiled at the com-
pliment and did another face
of the Colonel, this one so
contorted, convoluted and
cubistic that it was barely rec-
ognizable.
"This is so good it looks like
a fake Picasso," said the Colo-
nel admiringly.
"You have to understand,
my Colonel, even Picasso can
turn out a fake Picasso."


PACHEcr Ir CWarS DREAM'S tr







A Pacheco Book Review:

"Press Passes" by Tom McEwen
The other day, the U.S. Mail came and brought me a deli-
cious surprise: "Press Passes" by Tom McEwen, former sports
editor of the Tampa Tribune. I sat down and read it cover to
cover by nightfall. Not that-it is short, it's not. It's that it has
short punchy stories. You just can't-put the book down. It's
like eating potato chips. You just can't stop.
7 his book is pnmarily a Tampa book, for that was Tom's beat
and he covered it like a blanket. He was first and foremost a
Gator. On intimate terms with all the Gator coaches, he rooted,
criticized and prayed for Gator victories. Finally, his prayers
were answered with the coming of Hei snia n T roph. quarterback
Steve Spurrier.
This book is an easy read. It is chopped up in punchy, funny
segments, sometimes a one-liner, sometimes a paragraph, and
n frequently a few pages.
Life with Tom McEwen has been ioe long laugh for the 40
years I've known him. He is an old time cracker, a people's
man. He is chummy with the giants like George Steinbrenner,
D'Bartola and Al Lopez andjust as chummy \% ith the ball boys.
He's just a guy, one of us, and God gave him the gift to make
us laugh.
No,.. he has passed the gift on to us, the reading public with
his witty lighthearted book "Press Passes." Run to the store and'
bu-,- it and don't get too comfortable e in your chair. It reads so
fastyou'll be through before you know it.

MY VIEWPOINT
By John T. Spera


Update on Alzheimer's Disease
"Only the insane take themselves quite seriously." Max Beerbohn


Imagine having a dreaded
disease named after you ...
such an honor was given to
Alois Alzheimer, a German
neuropathologist who, in 1906,
first described the disease later
to be known as Alzheimer's. Al-
beit many diseases are named
after medical men after they
discover them and they have
to live with that fame orarie
"cursed" by it.
As you know, \1Mheirner's is
a degenerative brain disorder
that manifests itself in'late
adulthood. It results in an irre-
versible decline in nmemor and
the deterioration of different
cognitive abilities. Alzheimer
disease is characte-rized b,
the destructc'in rf ner.e cells
and neural -_c'nne-ctlions in the.
cerebral I':rrte-: of the brain a nd
by a no-te'.'.':rth, loss of brain
mass. Recent re sea rch into the
disease show amyloid plaques
and thick insoluble protein
deposits and cellular m.attcri.il
form around the neutrons of
the brain, co:rsistimin primarily
of beta-arnm,l.id and neuro-
frillar-y tangles, disarray and
tangling of the microtubul's of
ner.'e cells This may sem ',very
technical. but its' the scientific
explanation .o the disease and
the only way I can present it.
Are these abbnormarrltles
causes or by-products of the
disease? Isked Dr. Zanni,
clinical research pharmacist at
the National Canc'ei Institu te
SI can imagine the anxiety


among the aging people be-
cause the majority of cases of
AD -develop. in people 65 and
older and-almost 50 percent
over 85 are plagued with AD
with a negative prognosis. The
three stages of AD are mani-
fested in mild, moderate and
severe. Some forms of AD are
categorized as some stages
of aging, .until other family
members notice their inabil-
ity to recognize the purpose
of familiar objects (what are
they used for), and they are
confused when told what to
do and it takes severe effort to
communicate with other famil
members or friends.
Alzheimer disease is the
most common form of demen-
tia. The disease builds up dif-
-renrtl- among humans; this
implies that more than one
pathologic process may lead
to same outcome. Character-
istically, the first symptom to
show itself is forgetfulness. As
the disease progresses, mem-
ory loss becomes more severe,
and language, perception and
-motor skills deteriorate and
the individual is unsteady on
his 'her feet. The individual
becomes irritable and more
sensitive to stress atnd may
become back and forth an-
gry, anxious or depressed as
the mood becomes unstable.
The individual, in advanced
stages, becomes u n respond si\ e
and loses mobility and,~more
depressing to the patient and


caregiver, he/she loses control
of all body functions; after a
course from two to 22 years
death follows.
When Nancy Reagan plead-
ed to this administration for
her husband, President Rea-
gan, for failing to go ahead
with stem cell research, she
was badly informed that stem
cell would not provide a "cure"
for Alzheimer's disease. Ac-
cording to the data presented
American Geriatrics Society,
patients with AD were treated
with Aricept (donepezil) for six"
months were better able to
perform daily activities than
patients who discontinued
the rapy'r They, (patients) were
able, benefited by the drug,
to show greater cognitive and .
functional status, than those
who didn't take the drug!
A Melbourne-based Prana
Biote',ch rinolog-, Ltd got the green
light for a new drug for Al-
zheimer's sufferers to begin the
next phase of a clinical trial.
They are extremely confident
that PBT-1 (title given to the
new drug) will be the first drug
to target wIhat is believed to be
the root cause of AD the ac-
c'i rnularti n of amyloid plaques
in the neocortex of the brain!
They are going to proceed with
a one-year trial of PBT-1 drug
on 435 patients in the UK, Aus-
tralia and South Africa.
I sincerely hope that this
ner-. ly-f'oui.nd_ drug puts an end
to this frightening affliction.

On my '.way, home this Fri-
day. after helping the equilib-

of the floor and into a cab, 1
passed by a crew. of workers
demolishing a parking garage
on Tampa Street. When i asked
one of the men what was go-


ing to be built in its place,
he said, as if rehearsing lines
for a movie, "We only knock
'em down, kid. We don't ask
what for." I sat on the curb a
while and watched as a huge
concrete pylon tethered to the
end of a crane was lifted and
dropped, lifted arid dropped,
smashing the stru'c ture- into
chunks ofconcrete and twisted
metal It's not everday you

when your grandmother buys

suddenly can't remember what

They're re-making down-
town, you know. Every few
years, someone wants to wipe
away someone else's best in-
tentions. I have no idea if
the space '.'here the parking
garage that is soon to be an
artificial reef in the Gulf will
host an office tower or a park
(I'll bet your bar tab it's not
gonna be the latter) but I as-
sune there's going to be quite
a few scenes like this one going
on in downtown over the next
few months and years.
Speaking of which, I was at
The Hub when they re-lit the
Marquee at the Tampa Theater.
Not the schmaltz,; to-do with
the mayor and City Council
and the podiums, a week be-
fore all that. The workers.at
TECO lit that sucker up and
the 10 people who were in The
Hub filed outside, stood on an
empty sidewalk, and looked
up at the bright lights; the
first people in 30 years to see
the old girl glow. Man, it was
beautiful.

My Smelly Hair Could Save the World


by Paul Guzzo
I can argue anything. If you
tell me the sky is blue, I can ar-.
gue for hours that it is actually
purple. If you're a Republican
I will debate the Democratic
side of an issue and if you're
a Democrat I will debate the
Republican side. I can be a
pro-war Attila one second and
a tree hugging anti-war hip-
pie the next. When it comes
to debating I'm a chameleon.
Why?
Those of you who actually
read this mindless dribble I
spew out onto a piece of paper
every week probably think you
know the answer "Because
you're a jerk." WRONG! Well,
true, I am ajerk. I don't debate
both sides of an argument to
annoy people, though, but
rather to prove a point. Every-
one always thinks their point of
view is the only correct point of
view, while I on the other hand
think everyone is right and ev-
eryone is wrong it all depends
upon how you look at a situa-
tion and the correct answer
always lies somewhere in the
middle. It's all about percep-
tion. For instance, some people
believe oral sex counts as
marital infidelity, while others
would argue under oath that
it is not. Some people prefer a
president who leads this nation
through eight years of peace
and prosperity, while others
prefer a president who leads
this nation through eight years
of war and recession. There are
even some people who can ar-
gue that Fidel Castro has had
a profoundly positive impact
on this country, because if not
for Castro sending boatloads of
criminals to the United States
in 1980 the movie Scareface
would never have been writ-
ten, thus hundreds of rappers
would not have the defiritive
Scarface poster hanging over
their beds in every episode
of MTV Cribs. It's all about
perception. This isn't a new
discovery for me ... no, I discov-
ered the truth behind percep-
tion at a young age ...
When I was in high school
I was not that cool. I know,
those who have met me may
find that hard to believe as I
seem to be the very definition of
cool. (I'll wait until the laughter
subsides before I continue ...
OK, I don't have that long to
wait.) I attended high school
in the early 1990's, a time
period in U.S. pop culture his-'
tory in which it was hip to :be
a super clean cut preppy who
wore pink collared shirts under
cardigan sweaters and only lis-
tened to the top 10 hits on the
American pop chart. Basically,
it was cool to be a mindless
clone. I, on the other hand,
wore old t-shirts under -dirty
flannel shirts, sported nappy
unkempt sideburns and lis-
tened to Pink Floyd. Every girl

in school described me in the
same manner, -"Paul is pretty
cute, but he's SO weird and
just dirty." Suffice to say, my
dating calendar was far from
filled. But, rather than fighting
my reputation, I went with the
flow. Like I said, if you say the
sky is blue, I say it is purple.
If you tell me to clean up my
act, I'll toss my act in a sewage
drain. So, rather than trying to
fit in and becoming a clean cut
preppy, I challenged anyone in
my class to see if they could go
longer without washing their
hair than I could. One guy took
me up on the challenge my
friend Tony, and he wasn't too
much of a challenge. He was
the type of guy who would buy
new shoes the second he found
the tiniest little nick on them.
He lasted only two weeks. I
went another week just to rub
in my victory, my hair dread-
locking together and my fellow
classmates suddenly all report-
ing to class.10 minutes earlier,
fighting for the desks on the far
end of the room from mine.
A year later, though, a funny
thing happened when I began
my freshman year of college
... dirty became cool! The
band Nirvana released the
album In Utero, became the
talk of the pop culture -world
and everyone and their moth-
ers suddenly wanted to dress
like Nirvana front man Kurt.
Cobain in dirty t-shirts and
flannel shirts with stained
jeans and unwashed hair. I
was now fashionable, and my
dating calendar reflected it.
Suddenly, girls saying, "Paul is
pretty cute, but SO weird and
just dirty" in disgusted tones,
turned to, "Paul is pretty cute,
AND so weird AND just dirty"
in Jessica Rabbit-like cooing
voices. It's all about percep-
tion.
This new "filthy is cool"
mindset presented me with
one problem, though ... the
one thing that once set me
apart from the masses now
made me just one of the clones.
Granted, looking back, the
"rebellious" thing to do during.
the age of "filthy is cool" in the
mid-1990's would have been
to buck the dirty trend and
become an ultra-clean preppy,


which was no longer cool, but
that would have been way too
drastic a change. Instead, my
college friends, who were also
dirty before dirty was cool,
and I decided to take filthy to
a whole new level, a level that
no one else in society dared to
go. I mentioned my dirty hair
challenge from high school and
my dirty college friends jumped
at it. We all made a pact we
would not wash our hair ever
again.
Only one word can describe
the weeks that followed dis-
gusting. After about one month
Ve all began to get ill from the
stink of our own hair. After
about two months, I adjusted
to the smell, but I was even
more disgusting ... My pillow
case was stained brown. I left
grease marks on every wall I
leaned against and I would sit
in class and pull huge bugs
from the clumps in my hair.
But no one was more disgusted
than my girlfriend at the time.
She was slowly going insane.
One evening, a fellow dirty
haired friend of mine and I
were hanging out in his dorm
room with our respective girl-
friends when they decided we
all needed to have a talk ...
"This is getting out of hand,"
they said. "You smell and look
disgusting. In all honesty, the
fact that you are happily walk-
ing around knowing you are
two of the smelliest guys on,
campus makes you the biggest
losers on campus."
"Actually," I replied.
"Wouldn't the two girls happily
dating the two guys happily
walking around knowing they
are two of the smelliest guys
on campus be considered the
biggest losers on campus."
The girls said nothing.
Somehow, my dirty hair
from over 10 years ago makes
a strong statement on society's
opinions on politics, religion
and world culture ... No one
is ever right or wrong, it's all
about perception. For instance,
you may think I'm an idiot who
just wrote the most ridiculous
column in La Gaceta history.
But I think I'm a genius who
just got paid to write an article
about my dirty hair ... percep-
tion.

Dementia Storytelling
Storytelling training for people with dementia will be held
on Friday, February 4 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Estates
at Carpenters, 1001 Carpenters Way, Lakeland. TimeSlips
Training is an innovative national project developed in 1998
by Dr. Anne Bastings that uses an effective storytelling method
for people with dementia to reaffirm their humanity and con-
nection with staff, family and friends. Creativity offers people
with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and dementia a way to express
themselves without the frustration or embarrassment that can
come with memory loss. It also creates a way for profession-
als, family and volunteers to interact with individuals with
dementia on the common ground of the imagination. Often,
storytelling becomes a special event that brings the entire
group closer together. And, most importantly, sharing the
stories and storytelling process with staff, families and the
community at large helps deepen the public understanding
of the potential of people with AD and dementia. Cost is $50.
For more information, call 974-1309.

by their neighbor, Bonnie Miele. Miele is chronically, ill and
requires continuous attention, all the while taking care of her
21-month-old daughter. The Collins have helped her tremen-
dously since they have been her neighbors. Past recipients
of this award have been Mark and Cathi Towns, who helped
their neighbor during a pit bull attack; Robert Seamon, who
has never hesitated to help his single-mother neighbor; and
Don Berger, who has made a special effort to fight crime and
unify his Seffner community.
The award carries a $2,000 stipend, which the recipients
can use to improve their neighborhoods.
Every year in December, Hillsborough County recognizes
good neighbors with the Lonnie Lea Napier Good Neighbor
award. It was named after a county resident who lost his life
in 2001 while trying to rescue a neighbor's cat from a tree.
This was not the only instance of his compassion and help-
fulness, as neighbors tell story after story of how he could be
relied upon to help out in a number of ways.

of Neighborhood Relations, at 272-5860.

SPORTS


The Trojans Are the One

While the Tigers Get None


Let's flash back to the begin-
ning of the 2003 college football
season. The USC Trojans and
the Auburn Tigers two teams
with high preseason expecta-
tions played each other. USC
won the game 23-0 and was on
its way to Winning a piece of
the national title while Auburn
disappointed and came very
close to firing its head coach.
We now say to ourselves: If only
this game was scheduled in
2004 instead of 2003. Maybe
then we wouldn't have so much
controversy yet again in college
football.
The USC Trojans beat, make
that blasted the Oklahoma
Sooners 55-19 in the Orange
Bowl. The Trojans capped off
a perfect 13-0 season, win-
ning their second consecutive
national championship. The
Auburn Tigers defeated Vir-
ginia Tech 16-13 in the Sugar
Bowl to finish the season 13-0.
The Tigers were ranked behind
the Trojans in both major polls.
The mess of this whole thing
is that both USC and Auburn
did everything they were sup-
posed to do. The Trojans and
Tigers both went undefeated in
the regular season, both won
their conference champion-
ship, and both won their bowl
game. Both deserve to be called
national champions, yet only
one of them gets the glory. If
only they could settle this on
the field.


I admit that I -strongly op-
posed a playoff in college foot-
ball. That was before this
season in which three Division
I-A teams finished with perfect
records after the bowl games
were complete. USC, Auburn
and Utah were all flawless. But
there could only be one cham-
pion. It just isnrt right.
No one can assume that
USC would beat Auburn if the
two played. Despite having
played in a lesser conference,
the Utah Utes were mighty
impressive. Auburn and Utah
both deserved the opportunity
to play for the national title.
The Trojans may indeed be
the best football team in the
land, but the other teams
should've had the chance to
prove themselves. Before 2004,
the chances of having more
than two undefeated teams
at the end of the regular sea-
son was possible but seemed
unlikely. This season proved
more than ever that without
some sort of playoff there will
always be controversy. College
football is too great a sport to
have each season end with
such controversy.

si talk sports with Tampa Bay
Lightning, Orlando Magic and

Success I
Malio's Restaurant closed
last Saturday. It was a sad day
for those who so enjoyed that
very special establishment.
The noteworthy and the not
so prominent, from near and
far,. and from all professions,
trades and occupations all
came to Malio's for great meals
and to feel special. Malio's
unique demeanor with his
costumers made everyone he
greeted feel as if they were the
only important person in the
establishment.
I first met Malio Iavarrone
and twin brother Carmine
many years ago during the late
50s or early 60s when I worked
at Wolf Brothers. Their flair
for fine clothing brought them
to the store frequently and we
became good friends. The most
significant and outstanding
characteristic of their person-
alities was the same then as it
remains to this date, their warm
and friendly disposition.
In 1969, Malio and Shirley
bought the old Tropics Restau-
rant at 301 South Dale Mabry
and after some fantastic and
classy remodeling began doing


Ever Says
what the Ivarrone family has
done best for years they
cooked and sold quality food
enveloped in a friendly and
classy environment.
They had the hard work
ethics firmly implanted in
them by their mother from
the time they owned the old
Carmine's pizza and Italian
food restaurant on the then
Buffalo avenue and Tampa
street. The twins, brother Gene
and sister Mary all worked
there under the watchful eye of
Mamma. Friends and strang-
ers alike all were greeted with
a handshake, a hug or a kiss.
These were not the fake dem-
onstrations of goodwill that are
conveyed by so many. Their
demonstrations were, as they
have continued for years, sin-
cere acts of affection for friends
and appreciation for patrons
supporting their business.
Malio and Shirley were
joined by friends Dennis and
Ray Sanchez and the busi-
ness continued to grow. Un-
like many business to which
growth brings a loss of identity,
Malio's maintained that unique


Goodbye
warmth, that sincere touch of
appreciation that made people
feel esteemed there.
While Malio's became leg-
endary because of great food
and celebrity appearances.
what made the establishment
distinguished and revered
was the ownership. Malio Ia-
varrone has been a good and
loyal friend to celebrities as
well as to his help. He has
been equally kind and gen-
erous to the wealthy and to
those that struggle to pay for
a meal at his restaurant. His
friendship and .kindness has
embraced the most prominent
business people, attorneys
and physicians and equally
spilled to some unknown clerk
at a clothing store. That kind
of hard earned success never
says goodbye.
I will not be surprised if
the last line on a story about
a restaurant owned by Malio
lavarrone has not yet have
been written.
With much love we wish you
well in your future endeavors
dear friends.
BE A GOOD SPORT!
