Congressman Jim Davis has
filed to run for governor of
Florida.

Mayor Pam Iorio has appointed
Tampa attorney Ricardo Roig to
the HARTline board. He is replac-
ing Manny Alvarez who resigned


in December. Mr. Roig is the
former president of the Hispanic
Chamber of Commerce.

How are Tampa's chances on
landing the 2009 Super Bowl? We
hear they're pretty good. Those
in the know believe the decision,


which is made by NFL owners, has
been narrowed down to Tampa
and Atlanta.
One thing that is detrimental
to our bid is the Glazer's preoc-
cupation with the purchase of
Manchester United Soccer Team
in England. The Glazers are so
wrapped up in that fight that they
failed to show up at the Super
Bowl festivities. Their absence
was noted by other owners who
need to be lobbied for their vote
and want NFL football to be
number one in the minds of every
owner.
Another negative is the unsure
future of the management of Ray-
mond James Stadium. The NFL


thinks it is the king and doesn't
want some rinky-dink county
commissioner telling it how to run
its Super Bowl. County Commis-
sioner Brian Blair couldn't have
picked a worse time to shoot his
mouth off and to mess with the
Tampa Sports Authority (TSA).
Atlanta also has some prob-
lems, though, with the main one
being that the aging Georgia
Dome needs some sprucing up,
especially in the area of luxury
suites, which Raymond James
Stadium has in abundance. We
hear it's unlikely that the govern-
ments in Georgia will come up

La Uni6n es Fuerte, el Estado del Pueblo es Debil


Editorial Leonardo Le6n
La lectura, entonaci6n, y
modulaci6n del discurso del
Estado de la Uni6n Americana
realizada por Bush la semana
pasada. ante el Congreso y la
naci6n, deberia haber recibido
una 'A'. Sin embargo, como no
se trata de aprender a hablar
en pdblico sino de saber gober-
nar, el president ha fallado.
El aumento gradual de la vio-
.lencia en Irak y el acelerado
deficit fiscal dom6stico, son
resultados evidentes de esta
lamentable realidad.
Esta semana para empeorar
las cosas, Bush entreg6 al Con-
greso un presupuesto de "prio-
ridades" por 2.6 billones de
d6lares que enfatiza los recor-
tes en educaci6n y salud y
aumenta los presupuestos
militares y de defense.
Este presupuesto de recor-
tes a programs de asistencia
social, vivienda, bibliotecas
piblicas, investigaci6n, Medi-
caid, Medicare, entire los 150
programs que busca anular o
recortar, s6lo afectarian a la
clase pobre americana, a los
inmigrantes, a los nifios, y a
los envejecientes.
Muy por el contrario, el Pre-
sidente ha propuesto extender
los recortes tributaries a la
clase rica norteamericana y
aquellos que poseen las corpo-
raciones e industries hasta el
afio 2009. El total de ahorro
para ellos seria de 1.8 trillones.
Para el americano comfin y
corriente, aquel que decidi6
votar por Bush, y que olvid6
escuchar el discurso del Es-
tado de la Uni6n por sintoni-
zar el show del Ifdolo Ameri-
cano", las medidas de Bush fi-
nalmente lo van a sacar de su
marasmo para confrontar la du-
ra realidad de un pais que no
puede seguir pagando una deu-
da de 7 trillones de d61ares, a
menos que se hagan ajustes
dramAticos a la economic.
Los Estados Unidos paga 180
mil millones de d6lares en in-
tereses anuales por su deu-


da. Este dinero que deberia ser
usado para tantos programs
de asistencia social, simple-
mente se va a la basura, gra-
cias al irresponsible manejo
fiscal de este gobierno.
No obstante, Bush quiere
reparar el mortal dafio a la
economic reduciendo la ayu-
da a quienes mas la necesi-
tan, en vez de pedirle la just
tajada a la clase opulenta del
pais. Incluso, si el Congreso
aprobase semejante afrenta
contra la clase trabajadora
americana, 6sta no seria su-
ficiente para enmendar el agu-
jero fiscal de la naci6n.
La austeridad del presu-
puesto de este afio, contrast
con la generosidad dada a la
clase rica y el extraordinario
gasto federal de estos dltimos
cuatro aios. Muy a diferencia
de lo que el mismo Bush, pre-
gonaba en su campafia presi-
dencial del 2000 sobre reducir
los bur6cratas de Washington,
su gobiero ha aumentado el
aparato guberamental en un
23 por ciento, hacienda al go-
biero federal cada vez pode-
roso, complejo y costoso.
Ciertamente el eje angular
de la political econ6mica de
Bush se basa en la falsa afir-
maci6n de apoyar con excesi-
vas ayudas de recortes de im-
puestos a la clase industrial;
y corporativa de America, con-
fiando en que estos revitalicenr
la economic.
Esta ut6pica bonanza eco-
n6mica supuestamente re-
dundaria en mayores ingresos
para el estado. Bush fall en
mencionar c6mo y cuindo.
Muy a pesar de lo que el
mismo Bush quiera pensar, la
riqueza de los ricos no esta
pasando a los pobres en forma
de empleos o beneficios de nin-
guna clase. Las grandes cor-
poraciones en su mayoria auto-
reguladas se las arreglan para
redireccionar las ganancias en'
actividades financieras que no
legan a beneficiary a quienes
mas lo necesistan. Muchas de


ellas se quedan en el fascinan-
tejuego especulativo de la Bol-
sa, donde precisamente nues-
tro president quiere poner el
future del Seguro Social.
Si el Estado de la Uni6n es
fuerte como lo anunciase
Bush, el estado del pueblo es
debil. Nunca antes un pueblo
tan grande y trabajador como
el americano, se ha quedado
impet6rrito ante semejante
atropello a sus derechos. No
s6Lo no protest, sino que se
deja seducir por las falacias
de una doctrine compasiva,
pero s6lo con los ricos.
Mientras que cada familiar
americana recibe un pedazo
de pan duro ($1000 de exen-
ci6n tributaria por hijo) del go-
bierno federal, los ricos reci-
ben manjares billonarios (en-
tre un 15 y 22 por ciento de
perd6n fiscal).
El presupuesto de Bush es
ofensivo. Hiere a nuestros hi-
jos, mostrantoles el desden
por su future, e incluso al vo-
tante republican que ain tie-
ne fe en sus lideres politicos.
Durante el discurso de la
Uni6n, muy a pesar de lo con-
movedor que fue ver a una ma-
dre de un soldado americano
muerto en Irak abrazar a una
mujer iraqui, cuyo padre pere-
ci6 a manos del regimen del
derrocado Husseim, la realidad
es que Bush juega con nues-
tros sentimientos y la ignoran-
cia de un pueblo consumido por
la apatia y el entretenimiento
frivolo.
A menos de una semana de
ese aplaudido discurso, con su
humillante presupuesto Bush
ha sentenciado a la miseria, y
a la ausencia de seguro m6di-
co a millones de americanos.
Baste decir que el Estado
de la Uni6n Corporativa se ha
hecho Fuerte a costillas de un
pueblo d6bil, embrutecidoy do-
minado por el circo y la arro-
gancia de una superioridad tan
anacr6nica como la de su pre-
sidente.

Caida de Cast
Por: Maritza P6rez Socorro
"Para los Estados Unidos
se puede convertir un verda-
dero "hervidero en ebullici6n"
la caida o muerte de Fidel
Castro, porque el gobierno
'Fidelista' posee el arsenal de
armas mas grande de America
Latina, que de 11egarse a de-
satar un desbordamiento de
las masas con ese hecho, el
pueblo quedaria armado de
manera muy peligrosa y sin.
ningin tipo de control", afir-
ma, Joe Navarro, ex-agente
del FBI.
Navarro, president de
JNForensics, Inc, ex funcio-
nario y asesor del FBI, argu-
menta que es muy signifi-
cativo esta situaci6n y que
esta muy pr6xima a suceder.
"Estados Unidos debe estar
muy bien preparado para res-
ponder a esta realidad. El pue-
blo que esta en Cuba apoya a
Fidel. Es curioso porque mu-
chos dicen que no son comu-
nistas, sino fidelistas, hay
algo de personalidad, es como
una adoraci6n. Ser Fidelistas
para ellos es lo mas impor-
tante. 1 tiene ese carisma
que tenia Hiltler. Pero el dia
que muera que va a pasar. Va
a desatarse un vacip de powder
inmenso. Mucha gente del
pueblo cubano no le import
sufrir lo que estan sufriendo,
pero a la vez si 61 deja de
existir van a crecer los pro-
blemas, mas problems y mLs
problemss.
A su juicio explic6 que en-
tre los inconvenientes mins
peligrosos que debera enfren-
tar el gobierno norteamerica-
no, sera la inmensa acumu-
laci6n de armas que posee per
todas parties de la isla, porque
siempre estuvo pensando y
previendo una possible inva-
si6n de USA "Es verdadera-
mente impresionante, porque
son millones de toneladas de
equipos de guerra, sofistica-
do, que por ahora solo las
aguanta dos cosas: un canda-
do y el powder que tiene Fidel.
Si llega a caer y comienza una
contrarrevoluci6n, una anar-
quia y todas esas armas van
a crear un problema, no s6lo
para los USA, sino al hemis-
ferio entero, porque nunca he-
mos tenido una situaci6n de
esa naturaleza. El armamen-
to estd expandido por varies
lugares estrategicos en la is-
la; esta en muchos lugares,

Joe Navarro, ex-agente del FBI. ahora se dedica

dad en America Latina y Estados Unidos.


porque siempre pensaba que
tenia que estar preparado".
Navarro reiter6 que lo mAs
valioso que tiene Cuba ac-
tualmente no son ni el taba-
co, ni la cafia de azfcar, ni la
comida; "sino las armas, que
pueden ser vendidas a narco-
traficantes, terrorists, a los
criminals; entonces el hom-
bre pobre de Cuba que nece-
site dinero 16 va a vender a
cualquier persona sin impor-
tar la trascendencia".
Agreg6, que segi~n las esti-
maciones del gobierno ame-
ricano, la preocupaci6n no sur-
ge por la posesi6n de cohetes,
sino por los millones de grana-
das, los trillones de balas, an-
titanques, en fin, ademfs de
la fuga de por lo menos 230
mil personas quienes van a
tratar de salir de Cuba. En-
tonces surge la pregunta qud
va a hacery c6mo va enfrentar
USA esta cantidad de cubanos,
quienes intentaran ingresar a
suelo americano. "A mi juicio
el gobierno americano lo que
hara es intentar de frenar y
controlar la salida de los cu-
banos de la isla. Si eso pasa,
eso va a ser como un caldero


en ebullici6n que provocard
una explosion en el pueblo
enardecido preguntandose
hasta cuando deben sufrir
mAs 'si hemos pasado por todo
esto por un hombre, no por
una idea, y ahora teniemos que
continuar aqui'. Asi meditara
el cubano cuando se desate la
caida de Fidel".
NO AL EMBARGO
Joe Navarro, enfatiz6 su de-
sacuerdo con el embargo a Cu-
ba, porque consider. que de
esta manera se beneficia al
sistema de inteligencia cuba-
na. "Yo quiero hacerle el tra-
bajo a ellos much mAs dificil.
Si la policia secret de Cuba
control la entrada de 6000
exilados en un mes, es much
mas facil de conocer los mo-
vimientos de estas personas,
por el contrario si entran a la
isla de 30 a 40 mil exilados de
visit, es much mas comple-
jo saber los movimientos y
acciones de 40 mil personas
cada mes, porque el sistema
no va a tener la capacidad de
supervision para tantos visi-
tantes. Por ello sostengo que
Estados Unidos esta man-
teniendo por razones muy ob-.


vias a Fidel Castro en el po-
der. Hitller dijo unavez en 1936
que en ningin moment tenia
el prop6sito de desaparecer
ni exterminar completamente
a los judios, porque despu6s
tendria que inventarlos. Se
necesita de un enemigo para
unir al pueblo, y eso es lo que
la CIA esta haciendo".
CHAVEZ ES NARCISISTA
Joe Navarro, a lo largo de su
carrera como funcionario del
FBI ha estudiado la sicologia
y comportamiento de ciertos
lideres como Fidel Castro,
Hugo Chavez, entire otros, y a
su juicio ambos se parecen
en muchas maneras de pen-
sary actuar. "ChAvez es un nar-
cisista con complejos de infe-
rioridad y su recompensa son
actos magnificos hacia el pue-
blo para recibir aprobaci6n, 61
necesita hacer actos y show-
como el program, por ejem-
plo, "A16 Presidente" para
recibir esa atenci6n y levan-
tarse la autoestima. La carac-
teristica de los narcisistas
patol6gicos es que piensan
que tienen la verdad absolute
en sus manos, se creen que
tienen todas las respuestas,
se creen importantes. Le in-
teresa much la adoraci6n de
otros, principalmente de mu-
jeres. Es como una droga para
61 el hecho de.estar al frente
del pueblo. No podemos me-


nospreciar el charisma y atrac-
ci6n que despierta en diferen-
te grupos sociales como un
lider ifnico. Los narcisistas
nunca reconocen'este desor-
den de personalidad, por ende
no quieren ser regenerados,
ni much menos ser tratados
terap6uticamente ni tampo-
co ser ajustados, porque creen
que son normales. Sostengo
que el pueblo de Venezuela
no debe extrafiarse, mAs ade-
lante, ciertas actuaciones ex-
trafias, incluso extravagan-
tes de este lider, porque parte
de esa patologia de narcisos.
Lo peor de esto es que el pue-
blo va a sufrir".
UN LIBRO SINGULAR
Joe Navarro, es un hombre
muy dinamico, a pesar que se
retire de sus funciones en el
FBI. 4hora se dedica a la ase-
soria de gobiernos de America
Latina en material de seguri-
dad y .Estado. Recientemente
11eg6 de Colombia donde esta
dictando cursos sobre el com-
portamiento criminal en ese
pais. Igualmente tiene una
agenda apretada relacionada
con cursos a militares y a
diferentes agents de segu-
ridad. Recientemente culmi-
n6 de escribir un libro en
compafiia con John Schafer,
sobre c6mo entrevistar a los
press politicos "Advanced In-
terviewing Techniques".

El deported al dia
Por Harvey Grajales'


Colombia,
Para nadie en los Estados
Unidos es un secret que los
Patriotas se llevaron el
Superbowl en la NFL, pero
muchos si desconocen que el
equipo colombiano de
menores de 20 afios gan6 2-0
sobre Venezuela la final del
Sudamericano Sub 20. Esta es
la segunda vez en 18 afios que
el equipo cafetero conquista
tal hazafia. Ademds del titulo,
el conjunto dirigido por
Eduardo Lara tuvo a la figure
del torneo: el goleador Hugo
Rodallega, el maximo artillery
hist6rico.
Los colombianos no se
cambian por nadie. El orgullo
lo tienen por las nubes tras la
rotunda consagraci6n de su
selecci6n en el Sudamericano
Sub 20. Comandada por el im-
placable cafionero Hugo
Rodallega, Colombia se llev6
el titulo en forma invicta. Los
colombianos le pusieron
broche de oro a su campafia
con una victoria 2-0 ante Ven-
ezuela el dom~ingo, con Ro-
dallega nuevamente remecien-
do las redes contrarias.
"Rodagol, autor de 11 go-
les, cifra record en mis de
medio siglo de historic del tor-
neo, se convirti6 en la figure
indiscutida. Marc6 de. penal,.
tiro libre y hasta de chilena El
president Alvaro Uribe, en
medio de sus quebrantos de
salud, se sum6 a las voces de
felicitaci6n para Rodallega, su
compafieros y el estratega E-
duardo Lara.
"Los felicito de todo coraz6n
pues le han dado a Colombia
un moment de much alegria
y un triunfo para toda la na-
ci6n", le manifest el manda-
tario a Lara.
Los elogios no paran para
Lara y la radio, la television y
los diaries, la television y la
radio dedicaron gran espacio al
triunfo colombiano.

IEL TITULO ES PARA CO-
LOMBIAI destac6 en primera
plan el matutino local La Pa-
tria y sefial6 "por un instant
pareci6 como si el tiempo se
hubiese detenido para que.45
millones de colombianos go-
zaran y disfrutaran el logro
conseguido por un pufiado de
compatriots sobre la grama
del estadio Palogrande". De

mera que Colombia fue "un

TAMPA BAY DEVIL RAYS
El equipo de beisbol de las;
grandes ligas de la bahia, con-
tinmia aceleradamnete su re-
estructuraci6n para una mejor
tempbrada 2005, bajo la tu-
tela de sus entrenador el
Tampefio Lou Pinella y sus en-
trenamientos de primavera
que empezardn en marzo 2
frente al equipo de la Navy de
ST Petesburg. En los filtimos
movimientos del equipo se
destacan las negociaciones
con el derecho dominicano Je-
sius Colomd que evit6 el re-
curso de arbitraje, al acceder
el martes a un contrato por un
afio y 600.000 d61ares con los
Devil Rays de Tampa Bay.
Colom6 apareci6 en 33 jue-
gos por los Devil Rays la
temporada pasada, y tuvo una
foja de 2-2, con efectividad de
327 y tres rescates. Permiti6
s6lo 28 hits en 4i entradas y
un tercio, y ponch6 a 40 ene-
migos.
Tras ganar 320.000 d6lares
el afio pasado, Colom6 pidi6
825.000. El club le ofreci6
550.000. Colome puede ganar
bonos de 12.500 d6lares por
40 juegos y por cada cinco
partidos adicionales hasta su-
mar 60. RecibirA 10.000 d61a-
res si terminal 25 juegos, y ese
mismo monto por cada cinco
encuentros adicionales re-


sueltos hasta ilegar a.45.
Tres peloteros de los Devil
Rays siguen en el arbitraje: los
lanzadores Travis Harper, Tre-
ver Miller y el quisqueyano
Jorge Sosa. Bateo por pit-
cheo... Los Devil Rays de Tam-
pa Bay enviaron el domingo
al jardinero puertorriquefio
Jose Cruz hijo y una cantidad
de dinero a los Diamondbaks
de Arizona a cambio del lan-
zador zurdo Casey Fossum.
Cruz ba-te6 para promedio de
242 con 21 jonrones y 78 ca-
rreras impulsadas con los De-
vil Rays la temporada pasa-
da. El boricua conect6 175
jonrones y tuvo 535 carreras
producidas durante ocho tem-
poradas con Seattle, Toronto,
San Francisco y Tampa Bay.
Cruz se hizo acreedor a un
Guante de Oro con los Gigan-
tes en el 2003, pero tambien
es recordado por dejar caer un
elevado en la undecima en-
trada del tercer partido de la
series divisional ante los Mar-
tins de la Florida, que les per-
miti6 venir de atrss para ganar
esa series por 4-3 y despues
ganar la Serie Mundial a los
Yanquis de Nueva York. Fos-
sum se uni6 a los Diamond-
backs la temporada pasada
como uno de los principles
jugadores prospects del e-
quipo y Ileg6 en el cambio que
vio a Curt Schilling marchar-
se a Boston. El zurdo abri6 27
partidos para Arizona, y tuvo
foja de 4-15 con 6,65 de pro-
medio de carreras limpias,
ponch6 a 117 rivals y dio 63
boletos en 142 entradas. Los
Devil Rays tamnbion firmaron
al primera base agent libre
Travis Lee, con-quien acor-
daron un contrato por una tem-
porada. Lee se perdi6 casi toda
la temporada pasada con los
Yanquis de Nueva York por-
que sufri6 un desgarro en el
hombro izquierdo.
CONTROVERSIAL DE
ESTEROIDES EN BEISBOL
El flamante ex toletero Jos6
Canseco ha destadado otra


pol6mica de dopaje con su li-
bro sobre sus experiencias en
el b6isbol, que se publicard
una semana antes de.lo pre-
visto. Varios ex compafieros
del cubano han desmentido las
versions del uso de esteroi-
des, y hasta George W. Bush
ha negado todo conocimiento
de alegado d6ping en Texas
cuando 61 era propietario del
equipo.
El-ex pelotero cubano Jos6
Canseco afirma en un libro
que publicard en poco tiempo
que inyect6 esteroides a Mark
McGwire y que indujo a otros
peloteros a consumer drogas. -
El muy esperado libro titula-
do "Juiced: Wild Times, Ram-
pant 'Roids, Smash Hits, and
How Baseball Got Big", deberA
ser publicado por la editor
Regan Books el 21 de febrero.
La empresa matriz, Harper-
Collins, public en su pigina
de Internet una descripci6n
del libro, en la que afirma que
Canseco "se convirtio a si mis-
mo en un conejillo de Indias
de las drogas para mejorar el


rendimiento" y afiade que el
Jugador M&s Valioso de 1988
"mezcl6, compare y experi-
ment6 con los firmacos a tal
grado que adquiri6 fama en la
liga como 'El Quimico". El
Daily News no cit6 al libro y
serial6 que an se encontraba
en process de edici6n. Ade-
mas, el diario no inform de
d6nde obtuvo la informaci6n.
Canseco afirm6 que 61, Mc-
Gwire y Jason Giambi se in-
yectaron esteroides juntos en
una cabina de baiio en el Co-
liseo de Oakland. Sin embargo,
McGwire siempre ha negado
que .consumia esteroides.
"Siempre he dicho la verdad y
me entristece tener que seguir
enfrentando este tipo de pre-
guntas", dijo McGwire al dia-
rio. Canseco, por su parte, se-
fial6. que tambi6n indujo a su
compatriota Rafael Palmeiro
y a los boricuas Ivan Rodriguez
y Juan GonzAlez a que corisu-
mieran esteroides cuando fue
cambiado a los Vigilantes de
Texas en 1992.

El Super Bowl XXXVIII que se celebr6 el fin de
semana pasado fie extremadamente emocio-
nante, al punto de ser catalogado no apto para

faltando sl6o nueve segundos para que Nueva

Examen de Ciudadania
Soy resident de este gran pais (EU) desde septiembre
de 1996. Mi esposo y yo obtuvimos la residencia por petici6n
de nuestra hija, ciudadana norteamericana por
naturalizaci6n. dPudiera yo tomar el examen de ciudadania
en mi idioma, espafiol, ya que no domino el idioma ingl6s
del todo (usted sabe, "lora vieja ya no aprende". Tengo 69
afios. He salido del pais como tres veces al afio, y por afno y
mis estadias han sido de aproximadamente 20 dias cada vez
que he salido. Me perjudicarian en algo estas salidas?
Leoncia G. Jim6nez.
Lo siento, pero usted esta demasiado "joven" (I) para poder
tomar el examen de naturalizaci6n en el idioma de su
preferencia, distinto al ingl6s. En su caso, usted necesita,
segun mis cuentas, 11egar a los 75 afios de edad, o sea que
le faltan seis...
eQu6 e6mo lleg6 a esa cuenta?! La ley de Inmigraci6n y
Naturalizaci6n permit al extranjero resident dispensar el
ingl6s --y hacer el examen de naturalizaci6n en el idioma
que prefiera-- cuando tiene 15 afios de residencia... y mas
de 55 afos de edad. (La otra formula es a los 20 afios de
residencia, con 50 o mas afios de edad.) Como usted, segdn
su carta, es resident desde 1996, si sumamos 15, su afio
de gesti6n sera el 1996 + 15 = 2011, y como estamos ahora
en el 2005, la cuenta es 2011 2005 = 6, o sea, que le faltan
6 afios, que agregados a sus j6venes 69 dan los mggicos 75.
O sea, que usted me esta persiguiendo, porque ni aun yo
mismo he legado a esos tres cuartos de siglo, aunque ya
me falta poco...
No se preocupe por las salidas. Si son y seguiran siendo
de ese tamafio, no tiene problema. Al contrario de perjudi-
carla, la refrescan... kkkeep going! (ISiga asi -- le convienen...)

S-El ejercicio con peso moderado (5 a 10 libras) mejora la
densidad del hueso (disminuye el riesgo de osteoporosis),
aumenta la fortaleza y la masa muscular.2-E1 ejercicio
aer6bico regular aumenta los niveles de cholesterol "(bueno)
HDL, disminuye los niveles de triglic6ridos y de cholesterol
LDL-(malo). 3-E1 ejercicio mejora la habilidad de la hormone
insulina para entrar a las c61ulas, disminuyendo el riesgo
de diabetes en la mujer. active. 4-E1 ejercicio aer6bico regu-
lar,. reduce la frecuencia y severidad de los calories en la
etapa peri-menopaftsica o menopausiica.
5-La actividad fisica regular ayuda a combatir el insomnio,
la ansiedad y depresi6n moderada, ayuda en el control del
estr6s y los cambios de humor, aumenta la energia y mejora
la estima personal. 6-E1 ejercicio ayuda en el control del
estr6s. El estr6s liberal la hormona cortisol a la sangre y
contribute de esta manera a muchas enfermedades
degenerativas y a la disminuci6n de los niveles de la hormona
DHEA (dehidropiandrosterona). Niveles adecuados de la
hormone ayudan al mantenimiento de la masa.muscular

anot6 el Dr Ettienne Balieu en su studio double ciego-pla-

la revista "Porceedings of the Nacional Academy of Sciense.
7-E1 ejercicio no tiene que ser intenseo" para obtener
buenos resultados. 8-La mayoria de las personas necesitan
un period de 4 a 6 semanas, para adaptarse a la nueva
rutina de ejercicio. El 6xito,es iniciar con una meta que se
pueda cumplir, pero mantener la "constancia". 9- Y si las
razones que anot6 todavia no le son suficientes para
empezar a "moverse". Al aumentar la masa muscular (aunque
usted no la vea), aumentarA el consume de energia. -Las
calbrias que consuma serin mejor utilizadas y no serin
depositadas en el tejido graso. Una libra de mfisculo quema
de 100 a 400 veces mas calories que una libra de tejido graso
Pregunta de la semana del Flaca Club
dCualquier movimiento cuenta para sumarlo a la actividad
fisica? Cualquier movimiento, sobre todo si se hace cada dos
:a tres horas, le enviard el mensaje al cerebro: "Este es un
cuerpo active" y se iniciara la producci6n de enzimas que
ayudan a utilizar la grasa como energia, que no se produce
en adecuada cantidad en la persona sedentaia. Haga 5
minutes de ejercicio de estrechamiento, juegue con los nifios,
corte el c6sped, camine a la esquina, suba unas grades,
cualquier cosa que implique actividad. Mis informaci6n?

una dominaci6n mundial y
ademds el dictador queria abo-
lir el cristianismo e imponer
el national socialismo como
una religion global.
El complot que fue deno-.
minado "Operaci6n Rabat" se
habia planeado originalmente
para 1943, pero no se 11ev6 a
cabo ese afio por razones sin
especificar. Antes de que los
alemanes se retiraran de Ro-
ma en 1944, el general de la
SS, Kart Friedrich Otto Wolff,
habia recibido el encargo de
Hitler de secuestrar el Papa.
Wolff volvi6 a Roma des-
pu6s de una reuni6n con Hi-
tler en Alemania y concert
una reunion en secret con el


Papa. Wolff entr6 al Vaticano
en ropas civiles durante la
noche, gracias a la ayuda de
un sacerdote. El official ale-
man le cont6 al Papa las 6r-
denes de Hitler y asegur6 que
no tenia intenciones de se-
cuestrarle, pero le advirti6 al
Pontifice que tuviera cuidado.
debido a que la situaci6n en
Roma era confusa y llena de
riesgos.
Para probar las buenas in-
tenciones de Wolff, el Papa
Pio XII le pidi6 la liberaci6n
de dos lideres italianos de la
resistencia que habian sido
condenados a muerte. Wolff lo

Leyendas y Tradiciones Sobre San Valentin


or Srta M Ihin Rimaem:
A trav6s de los siglos se han
multiplicado toda una series de
leyendas y tradiciones alre-
dedor de- este martir romano,
santo cristiano que fue sacri-
ficado porque se dedic6 a ca-
sar parejas atin cuando el em-
perador Claudio II, 16 habia
prohibido. Se dice que en su
tiempo de gobierno, este
dirigente romano creia que
los soldados casados no eran
tan buenos y eficientes como
los solteros".
M&s important que el 14,
por much tiempo fue el 15
de febrero en la antigua Roma
donde se celebra ese dia, y en
honor del dios Lupercus, el
dia de la fertilidad o luper-
calia.
El calendario Cat6lico Ro-
mano consider ese dia como
dia de fiesta, recordando asi
a San Valentin como santo
cristiano. Esto ocurri6 en el
aOo 1969.
Doblemos la hoja, como
dice el refrAn espafol y actua-
licemos esta celebraci6n.
A nivel mundial e inclusive
con fines comerciales quien no
demuestra su amor, su amis-
tad, su agredecimiento por
medio de un obsequio e inter-
cambiando mensajes con los
series que son dignos merece-
dores de nuestra estima es-
pecial.
El amor no tiene edad e in-
clusive lo hacemos eterno,
inolvidable, imperecedero.
Instituido especificamente
como "Dia de los Enamora-
dos", surte mayor efecto fren-
te a la juventud, entire matri-
monios recientes y entire per-
sonas que estan en via de ello.
Sin embargo, es convenien-
te aclarar que en nuestro idio-
ma o lengua castellana, digase
en mayor o menos cuantia
distinguimos en su uso el ver-
bo AMAR del verbo QUERER.
Se ama a Dios Todopode-
roso. Se ama a un compaiero
de vida. Se quiere a un perrito
o mascota. Lo quiero entra-
fiablemente...
Muchas veces al decir ITe
quiero muchol. Viejo no estAs


;Flores! Eternamente sublimes como el amor pu-
ro. Sienapre son portadoras de un delicado mensa-
je caulivado por el romance y la amistad.


s6lo en ru dolor. IEstoy con-
tigol, etc, etc, estamos mas
bien afiadiendole al senti-
miento otras connotaciones
afectivas como pueden ser:
Compasion, Pena Condolen-
cia, IAstima, Paciencia, Con-
sideraci6n, etc,etc.
Ahora bien, seamos since-
ros y mirando ese almanaque
traicionero que ha marcado
tantos episodios de nuestras
vidas, dejemonos lievar por
los recuerdos y:

---Te recuerdas de X, tu
primer enamorado?
--A lo mejor guards el
primer regal que recibiste y
que a lo mejor escondiste y
guardaste...
-- Si acaso fue triste ese
dia porque no recibiste ningin
regalito, ni tan siquiera una
Ilamada telef6nica dlo recuer-
das todavia?.
--ePracticas en la actuali-
dad el amor al pr6jimo?
Y cuando lo haces, amiras
a qui6n? como dice el refrain.
Siempre recuerdo con sin-
cero e inmenso carifio a una


profesora cubana, nacida en
Regla extremeo este del Puer-
to y Bahia de La Habana, Cu-
ba). Su nombre Maria Josefa
Cabezola. Casada con el doc-
tor Bosch que fue Alcalde in-
clusive del pueblo. Ella ocu-
paba tambien la column "So-
ciales del Peri6dico "El Mun-
do". Su nombre para la prensa
era Graciella de Armas. Todo
esos atributos se resume en
una acci6n impossible de olvi-
dar:
Graciella de Armas, cre6 en
Cuba el "Dia de los Enamo-
rados".
Es para mi motivo muy es-
pecial para todos los lectores
desearles este 14 y todos los
dias que resten de sus vidas
muchas pruebas de AMOR con
sus parejas, hijos y/o sobri-
nos, vecinos, etc, con sus se-
res que ya partieron mate-
rialmente pero que jams los
hemos considerados fuera de
nuestro alcance spiritual y
amenos a Dios, nuestro Juez
Supremo por encima de todas
las cosas. Feliz dia de San
Valentin.

In questi giorni, si celebra in tutta
Italia la festa del carnevale, come quello
di New Orleans in America o di Rio de
Janeiro in Brasile.
lo voglio soffermarmi a parlare di
quel carnevale che nonostante tutto si
celebra ancora nelle nostre parti e sof-
fermarmi sul come si celebrava molti
anni fa'.
Ricordo molto bene quando avevo l'eta'
sui 7, 8 anni come vivevo il carnevale nel
mio paese di Alessandria della rocca.

Le festivita' legate al Carnevale in
Alessandria della Rocca, come del rest.

L'ultima sira, cos' chiamata dai nos-
tri nonni perched' 1'indomani iniziava la
Quaresima, era occasione per le famiglie


di stare assieme a tavola e gustarsi
prelibatezze che avrebbero poi man
nuovamente a Pasqua.
A Carnevale, ora come allora
mascherava.
I vestiti erano per lo piu' degli
dimessi e vecchi; spesso gli uomi
vestivano da donna indossando l'ab
matrimonio della propria moglie, si
n' avianu fuiutu, se cioe' non eranc
gitidi casa per andare, oggi si dire
a convivere.










'k,


E le donne, da uomini, in mod
sembrare buffe.
In fondo il carnevale era questo,
sare spensieratamente quei giori
festa all'insegna del ballo e del div
mento, senza troppi sfarzi, anche pe
pochi potevano permetterseli.
Si usciva a a gruppi ed in masci
per non farsi riconoscere, per le vi

ebbe,


paese, con in testa lu Vastuneri figure ormai con-
osciuta solamente dalle person piu' anziani di noi
- cioe' guidati da un uomo che andava bussando nelle
case degli alessandrini dicendo: Chi tiniti sonu?
Cioe': E' qui la festa? Si balla. Ed allora il padrone
di casa li faceva accomodare, offriva qualche dolce
tipico o un ciciri caliati, un buon bicchiere di vino e li
invitava a ballare.
Quasi sempre le case erano anguste ed allora alla
fine di oigni ballo ci si metteva da parte per far ballare
gli altri.


Spesso si sentiva qualcuno che ripeteva: Cu abballa'
a la scala, cioe' chi ha finito di ballare si-sistemi, o provi
a sistemarsi, nella scala, l'unico spazio disponibile.
Ii giorno di carnevale o meglio nel pomeriggio, verso
le quattro, quando i contadini ritornavano dalla cam-
pagna piu' presto del solito, iniziavano i festeggiamenti
di 1' "urtima sira".
Le famiglie si riunivano: i nostri nonni ci tenevano
tantissimo, forse piu' della festa della Madonna, a
che tutti i loro figli o almeno quelli che al moment
non erano emigrati in Svizzera, Germania o Francia,
sedessero a tavola con le proprie famiglie la sera di
carnevale.
II lauto pranzo consisteva in un primo costituito da
pasta fatta rigorosamente in casa e nisciuta
nni 1'arbitiu" col sugo di castrato; care a sugo

with the money to spruce up the

expected to render a decision on
the 2009 Super Bowl. That would

Ybor City Chamber of Com-
merce finally has a new president,
Tom Keating. Keating is an expe-
rienced chamber and foundation
executive, having served as vice
president of the Florida Chamber
of Commerce and executive direc-
tor and board member of the 21st
Century Council, a community
research foundation. He is known.
for his pioneering work in estab-
lishing Enterprise Florida, Inc.,
the state's innovative economic
development partnership.

A few days ago over lunch,
Joe Bondi introduced us to Bud
Chiles, son of the late great U.S.
Senator and Governor of Florida
Law ton Chiles. Bud Chiles has
tossed his hat in the governor's
race and must now go through the
process of shaking as many hands
as possible between now and the
primary election in September
2006.
We found his demeanor pleas-
ant and somewhat folksy. Bud
Chiles also shares the same eyes
and distinctive eyebrows of his
dad. After having two stiff and
lifeless Democratic nominees for
president in the likes of Al Gore
and John Kerry, Democrats might
find Mr. Chiles an intriguing alter-
native in the Democratic field.
Democrats yearn for someone
with passion and who can connect
with them. Chiles' style will serve
him well with these Democrats.
He wants to do some work days
and walking tours during the cam-
paign. He will also limit campaign
-contributions to $250 per person
and not accept any PAC money.
Mr. Chiles has spent years man-
aging and directing charitable
programs that improve health-
care and education and empower
communities across the globe. He
is involved in the Lawton Chiles
Foundation and its good work
in Florida. He is also a private
businessman and owns a piece
of Florida Capital, which devel-
ops coastal properties in North
Florida.

Sister Mary Rinaldi gave us a
tour of the Villa Madonna cam-
pus located near Tampa Heights
and we were quite impressed.
The Salesian Sisters have done a
fantastic job of modernizing and
improving the grounds and the
buildings of the pre-k 8 private
school. They have even gone as far
as equipping each student with a
Dell laptop computer. Quite an
achievement for any school, espe-
cially one that has an affordable
tuition.

The Tampa Jewish Community
Center Federation is having their
second annual President's Dinner
on March 3. The guest speaker
is former New York mayor and
Republican spokesman Rudy Giu-
liani. We hear many in the Jewish


community are upset over the
choice of such a partisan speaker
for the dinner and will boycott the
event. The tickets cost $150 and
we're told the proceeds pay for Mr.
Giuliani speaking fee.
*****
Francis Williams, the CEO of
Kimmins, met with staff from
the City of Tampa, Barrio Latino
Commission (BLC) and the Ybor
City Development Corporation
Thursday. Mr. Williams wants to
build a high rise on his property,
which is on the north side of Ad-
amo Drive in Ybor. His plans are
in conflict with the BLC's rules,
which restrict the height of new
buildings in the BLC's district. He
is looking for a way around those
rules or to have the city redraw
the district, leaving his property
outside the boundary.

We hear Manny Alvarez, chair-
man of the board of Colonial Bank,
is recovering from triple bypass
surgery. He is now resting at
home. We wish him well.

Our friend Willie Garcia is do-
ing better after suffering three
strokes. He has been moved from
Tampa General Hospital to the
rehabilitation facility next door.

The Hillsborough County Dem-
ocrati Executive Comn mittee will
hold its monthly meetings at a
new location. The NMonday, Febru-
ary 21 meeting will be at Latam's
at the Centro Asturiano in Ybor
City at the corner of Palm and
Nebraska. There is no cost for
parking and dinner tickets will be
available for $10. The social hour
starts at 5:30 p.m. The meeting
begins at 6:30 p.m.

We heard that County Commis-
sioner Jim Norman andhis aide
Ben Kelly were partying hard at
the Super Bowl in Jacksonville on
Sunday. We called Norman to ask
where he got his Super Bowl tick-
ets and were told in a firm, cold
manner, "I bought my tickets pri-
vately."We asked if he was lucky
enough to purchase the tickets'
through a broker and he repeated
his original answer. Our curiosity
was now overflowing since finding
Super Bowl tickets to purchase
if not.a common occurrence. You
just don't call Ticketnaster and
order two seats. You have to know
somebody to get to go to the year's
biggest sporting event. So we
asked Mr. Norman is he got the
tickets through the Buccaneers or
maybe a lobbyist and once again
he gave us the same answer. Mr.
Norman believes paying for the
tickets ends the discussion, but
we do not. It's normally a favor to
allow someone to purchase Super
Bowl tickets and we think the
public has the right to know who
did this favor for its elected public
servant. Was it a developer who
goes before the commission for
variances? Was it a lobbyist who
wants a vote to favor his client?
Was it the Bucs who want a tax
free new locker room? Or was it an
innocent transaction? With Jim's
answers and a weak ethics policy
regarding county commissioners
we are likely to never know.
Oh, we also heard that Norman
and his aide had tickets to some
very high priced and exclusive
parties and events while they

SOn Tuesday we attended a town
hall meeting run by the National
Association of Hispanic Journal-
ists, the Tampa Tribune, WFLA,
Channel 8 and TBO.com. This
group had invited members of
the Hispanic community to talk
about how these Media General
news organizations could improve
their coverage of the Hispanic
community.
We were very proud of the La-
tinos in the room. They set aside
their differences on issues, their
prejudices and their politics and
took the opportunity to speak in
a unified voice to inform and chal-
lenge those large media organiza-
tions to do a better job for bay area
Hispanics. To the Tampa Tribune's
credit, they said they would meet
the challenge. We must now wait
and see.

According to the Bureau of La-
bor Statistics, the overall national
unemployment rate in January
was 5.2 percent. Hispanics are far-
ing far worse with 1.2 million look-
ing for work,: an unemployment
rate of 6.1 percent. Of course,
because these numbers only in-
clude Hispanics that are currently
claiming unemployment benefits,
the act ual number, is higher.

A group of concerned and pa-
triotic citizens is working to raise
$170,000 to fund the Haley House
Project. The project would house
and transport families of active
duty, combat injured and veter-
ans having extended treatment
at the James A. Haley Hospital
in Tampa. The housing would be
for families whose loved ones have
blast or burn injuries, long term
care spinal cord injuries, major
surgery and hospice care. This
project would provide 10 living
units for one year at which time
a permanent facility will come on
line located at the VA Hospital.
Everyday we see yellow ribbons
on cars proclaiming support of our
troops. Contributing to this cause
would be a meaningful way to sup-
port our troops and their families


who have paid a very high price
for our country.

SOn the Other Hand

by Lee Drury De Cesare


Message in a Bottle from Planet Piffle


Mr. Weekly Planet Garcia: a
friend emailed your recent boil-
erplate spiel on the gay factor
in Florida politics. You assert
my reason for asking Le Little
General Crist about his sexual
orientation was "political."
You hit all coy cliches on
the issue. You want to sound
worldly. You instead sound
parochial. Unsophisticated
people shrink from discussing
third-rail gay issues. You fall
in line and chime the let's-get-
this-unpleasant-issue-out-of-
the-way-and-push-it-back-
under-the-bed note.
You misread my reason for
asking Crist's gay status. I
inquired for larger political mo-
tive--not narrow politics of get-
ting Democrats elected. After
their '04 flaccid performance,
few deserve it. My query aimed
at hypocrisy's afflicting poli-
tics. You discern, one hopes,
that hypocrisy ranks political
issue. It deals with politicians'


telling us the truth or lying.
Anti-gay legislation affects a
lot of people. Ten percent of the
population is gay. Kinsey's un-
challenged research says that'
37 percent of men have had at
least one gay experience-four
out of ten. The political and
psychological implications of
these facts need exploring, not
squelching.
Panicked denial" under-
girding homophobia mani-
fests itself in the gay-marriage
amendment. It represents
desperate defense against
sexual-identity terror. That
they may be gay or have gay
tendencies terrifies soi disant
heterosexual 48-hour-Cialis-
Viagra-softab swashbucklers.
So they go around beating
their chests and beating up
on gays to prove what indus-
trial-strength y-chromosome
paragons they are, ready to im-
pregnate every nubile maiden
who crosses their line of vision.


Crist's reported manic squiring
of multiple women in public to
advertise heterosexual bona
fides provides datum.
Le Crist serves eager cog in
Republican calculated homo-
phobic cynicism. If he's gay,
his dealing the gay political
card that injures other gays
ranks doubly despicable hy-
pocrisy.
If Crist is gay, he acts Roy
Cohen of Florida politics.
Crist not only injures gays.
He also injures women. Crist
hews to party line "pro-life"
and to hell with the lives of
women who return to the
misery of back-alley abortions
if the Republicans pack the
Supreme Court and obliterate
Roe v. Wade.
Republicans pose lachry-
mose fans of zygotes, but with
live children, they turn stone
cold, cutting benefits without
pity.
Have you asked Crist about

his gubernatorial programs for
prenatal care, post-natal care,
healthcare, food-and-hous-
ing needs for the children he
wants to force women to bear
to burnish his political viability
with right-wingers? I bet not.
Have you asked why he op-
poses gays' adopting children,
even AIDS children nobody else
wants? I wager no. The don't-
ask-don't-tell press remains
supine on questions outside
the box of orthodoxy.
You endorse hetereosexuals'
telling the truth about sexual
orientation, not gays. You tell
them to lie.
"If you are gay or lesbian,
deciding whether or how to
answer [the gay question] is far
trickier." You give bad advice.
Your "tricky" exemption man-
dates gays' lying to keep the
toxic subject for bigots under
the political bed. Gays who lie
feed the beast of homophobia.
Only when enough refuse to lie
will homophobia's political grip
on politics die.
A roundheels press helps
Republicans perpetuate gay
and other hypocrisy. They
regurgitated the hallelujah
chorus that lied us into Iraq.
They repeat Heritage think-
tank-programmed propaganda
to lull voters into voting for a
party that opposes their eco-
nomic and social wellbeing.
That poor Southern whites and
Logcabin Republicans voted
Bush testifies to triumph of the
brainwashing.
Press hotshots don't think
of reframing debate by asking
questions that don't lead into
Republican programmed argot.
They roll over. Watch Sam
Donaldson, his rug askew,
serve up loopy caricature of
the crusading press in White
House briefings. These scenes
portray Bush-spin press emas-
culation.
George Layoffs Don't Think
of an Elephant outlines how
calculated Republican linguis-
tics skews current political
discussion. Since Goldwater's
defeat, Republican thinktanks
have researched hijacking po-
litical language to lull people
into voting their agenda.
"The Clear Skies Initiative"
for Republican pollution spree
is example. "Personal" Security
Accounts for the privatization
destruction of Social Security
is another. Heritage et al tested
"privatization" and found the
word alarms voters. So they
changed diction to soothing,
disingenuous "personal" ac-
counts. Press zombies repeat
the euphemism. We enter
Huxley's Brave New World with
press complicity.
Your column's name is "Po-
litical Whore"? You know,
don't you, that "whore" comes
to us from Old English and is

female? So what does that label
make you, sir? Are you closet
drag queen, crossdresser,
boytoy, gay wannabe, fag lus-
ter, or explorer of your inner
child's polymorphous perverse
yearnings? What about epicene
tendencies and anything else
on a scale of one to ten? I sus-
pect your soubriquet betrays
psychological lapdancing.
"Whore" reigns template
slur against women's chastity,
as old as time for the double
standard. Men's chastity is
never an issue, only women's.
"Whore" is what Dr. Lakoff
calls "a frame." You employ
moss-grown sexist whore slan-
.der by extrapolating to women
the soiled politics the country
and Florida endure, although
men are in charge.
Dare originality and call
your column "John Politics."
Johns buy women's bodies on
Nebraska and children's bodies
in Asia. "John," not "whore,"
defines society's sexual creeps.
Take John Politics as escutch-
eon: it's closer to your sex-
ist weltanschauung. Johns'
streetwalker victims are too
damaged to suffer another rape-
by your humdrum smear.
When you complete your
exercise in repressed group-
speak to cover up the gay
issue, turn to your grammar
primer. A professional writer
shouldn't make this Romper-
Room error.
"Am Igay? No, I'm not," said
Sanchez, who lost the 2001
Tampa mayoral race to Pam
lorio, and who had to contend
with rumors of homosexuality
throughout his campaign and
beyond.
Don't split compound adjec-
tival dependent clauses with
a comma. See me in my office
after class, young man. Bring
your grammar primer. When
you master commas, you may
be ready to pursue a course of
study to tackle psychological
probes of people's motives.
The quality of your current
template gay analysis shows
that you repine a long way from
readiness for that activity.
Don't attribute motives to
me. Doing so rises above your
paygrade. You don't occupy
a tripod over a crack in the
earth at Delphi, sugarbritches.
You lack competence, to dis-
cern my moti\ies. I eaYed my
stripes when ybuo'l.couture
was Pampers. My :iio.'t -.,s lie
beyond your feeble powers of
analysis.

If you attend this year's
Krewe of Sant' Yago Illumi-
nated Knight Parade on Sat-
urday, you may want to watch
out when the Krewe of Sant'
Yago's float passes. The king
may not be throwing beads ...
he may be throw-
ing mangos.
"I outgrew that
a long time ago,"
laughed John : ..
Madiedo, Jr., the
2005 king of Sant'
Yago. "I promise
I'll only throw
beads. '
"One of. the
krewe member's s
wives joked a few
weeks back that ..
she remembers
me as a little boy .
in West Tampa
throwing green
mangos at cars
and people," he
explained. "She
said she can't be- i:

Madiedo doesn't
measure his suc-
cess in terms of the money
his business makes; when he
speaks of success he is think-'-
ing of his family.
"I am a proud businessman,
no doubt," He said. "But I am
: a much prouder parent. My
children have all grown into
fine adults and that is how I
believe you should measure a
man by his children;"
Which is why being king of
Sant' Yago.is such a special
honor for Madiedo. Sure it's
nice to sit atop the parades
keynote float and sit at the
head of the table for the krewe's
functions for the next year, but
what will truly make this year
to.remember for Madiedo will
be the time he'll get to spend
with his daughter, Mary, this
year's queen of Sant' Yago.
"It seems to be a common
trend within the krewe. We've
had father and daughter king/
queen combinations for the
past few years," said Madiedo.
"I viewed this as an opportu-
nity to do something special
with my daughter, a way to
create more of a bond between
us. As a dad raising boys, I was
always a little league coach and
always bringing them to games .
and watching them compete.
But, in the past, about once a
year I got to see my daughter
at a dance recital. That was
the most involvement I had
with her outside of. ur fam-
ily time together. For me, this
was a unique opportunity to
-do something with my daugh-
ter and spend that time with
her."
Over the next year, Madiedo
and his daughter will attend
other krewe's balls together,
participate in the parades, and
walk arm in arm into a number
of other social functions and
charity events.
"The father/daughter trend
is something that when it first
started some of the members
weren't sure it was a good
idea because we would only
be honoring one family rather
than two," said Madiedo. "But


the in time then majority of
our membership saw that it
was a great idea. The Krewe of
Sant' Yago's mission is to en-
hance and perpetuate Tampa's
strong Latin heritage, and the
most important part of life


proud businessman, no doubt,

man by his children."


for any Latin is family, so the
father/daughter royalty trend
really displays what we are all
about."
This is why Madiedo is the
perfect man to fill the.role of
king for the next year, as he is
very prouid of both his family
and his Latin roots.
His father, Frank Sr., is
from Spain and his mother,
Mary,. is from Sicily, and they
raised Madiedo in West Tampa
as he said any Latino would
raise their child to be a re-
spectful,and hard working
individual.
"Both my parents were very
devout Catholics and hard
workers with a great sense
of family," said Madiedo. "My
mother was a cigar maker and
my father worked for a box
factory, and together they were
partners with a third person in
an Italian restaurant, Maria's
Italian Restaurant, on. West-
shore Boulevard. Like .many
hardworking immigrants of
that time they worked two jobs
so that they could support the
family and make sure I.got a
good education."
As a child, Madiedo vividly
remembers attending the pa-
rades with his father, walking
from Garcia Avenue to Cass
Street, sitting on the curb and
watching the Gasparilla Parade
cruise by on its way to the fair-
grounds on North Boulevard,
where the parade would end.
"The parade-was held on
a Tuesday back then I think
and we would all miss school
to go," remembered Madiedo.
"I would see the kings of the
various krewes, standing tall
atop these beautiful floats
and just stare in wonder: I
,never thought I would have the
opportunity to be one of the
kings. I never even imagined I
would be in a krewe."
Madiedo originally joined
the Krewe of Sant' Yago in
,1986, but by 1989 he decided
to leave the krewe.
"Between my young family
and young business I didn't


have the time," he said. "It was
the right decision. My children
grew up right and my business
flourished."
His business, Profession-
al Insurance Center (PIC),
is a retail insurance agency
that specializes
in insuring the
automotive in-
r* dustry. Madiedo
said PIC insures
up to 95 percent
of the taxicabs in
Tampa, 25 per-
cent of all taxi-
R cabs in Florida,
Sand around 5
10 percent of all
taxicabs in the
nation.
Madiedo and
his wife, Debra,
S founded PIC in
1981. They had
both worked for
Metropolitan Life
and decided they
were ready to
take the risk and
venture out on
their own. Origi-
nally they were
located in a one
room office with
only a conference
table and a phone
for furniture, but
within a year they
outgrew the tiny
office and built
the building on
but I am a Kennedy Boule-
e all grown yard where they
you should are currently lo-
cated.
"Our success
is a result of find-
ing that specific niche that no
one else wanted to specialize
in," explained Madiedo, who
earned his B.A. in business
from Florida State Univer-
sity. "The road less traveled is
harder, but it is always more
rewarding when you reach
your destination."
His business running strong
and his children all either
Grown or in their teenage years,
Madiedo rejoined the Krewe
of Sant' Yago in 1996, was
knighted in 2000 and soon
after began thinking about
becoming a king.
"Qne of my close friends,
Tony Martino, became king
and his daughter served as
queen and I saw how much it
meant for him to get to spend
that time with his daughter,"
said Madiedo. "Tony and I
watched our kids grow up
together, both owning condos
in Indian Rocks, and I have
to admit, I was a bit jealous
of him. I wanted to share that
experience with my daughter
as well."
Madiedo hopes everyone
comes out to the Knight Parade
on Saturday to share his expe-
rience with him and, of course,
to have a great time.
"I think Saturday's parade
is so festive and fun because
of all the color and sound it
brings to Ybor City, our Latin
historic district," said Madiedo,
who actually designed this
Sant' Yago's float, which has
been voted this years parade
season's Most Outstanding
Float. The Krewe of Sant' Yago
was also honored with this
award four years ago when
Madied6 designed the float..
"I love the Gasparilla Day
Parade, but to me the Knight
Parade is much more beauti-
ful because it is at night. The
floats, covered with light, are
glowing works of art parading
through the city. It's just a
wonderful sight."
If you attend the parade,
Madiedo has only one request
... that you get the name of the


parade correct.
"People still call it the Gas-
parilla Night Parade," laughed
Madiedo. "We really take of-
fense to that. Last year actu-
ally parade participants were
wearing shirts that said, 'Proud
to be in the Gasparilla Night
Parade.'The television stations


and the major papers always
seem to get it wrong too. The
Krewe of Sant' Yago is very
proud of being the sponsors
of this great event and wish
people would recognize our
krewe for the work we do."
If you get the name wrong,
watch out for flying mangos.

MY VIEWPOINT
By John T. Spera


Obesity and Its Ramifications
"Imprisoned in evert fat man a thin one is wildly signalling to be let out."
Cyril Connolly


Come on, we all know that
this is a fat America!
So fat, indeed, we can send
all this excess fat to starving
countries like Somalia, Sudan
and Sri Lanka! By excess fat,
I mean all that surplus food
we eat should be sent to the
deprived countries.
Obesity is often also called
Corpulence, or Fatness is usu-
ally brought about eating more
calories than the body can use;
that is overindulgence! Over-
weight, albeit moderate, is not
essentially obesity, particularly
in muscular or large-boned
persons. Generally speaking,
a body weight of 20 percent or
plus over the optimum may be
associated with obesity.
However, only 5 percent are
affected by hormonal or glan-
dular imbalances, most people
overeat! Although obesity may
be familial, suggestive of a
genetic predisposition to fat ac-
cumulation, there is evidence
that early feeding patterns


enforced by the obese mother
upon her offspring may play
.a most important role in the
cultural makeup of the family
group, rather than the genetic
transmission of obesity from
one generation to the next
generation. Among the affluent
populations, where they are ex-
posed to an abundant choice of
readily accessible high-calories
foods and sugar-laden bever-
ages, combined with sedentary
habits such as watching tele-
vision, playing video games at
the mall, can readily reduce
the caloric needs that can
lead to overeatingr Th h ever-

are enticing our children with
cereals that are amalgamated
with sugar and they cater to
the children's sweet tastes. I
wonder if the children of these
CEO's eat the same food. Of
course, these foods are tasty,
that's the way the companies
produce them, and when the
children get out of school to
come home, the mothers or
fathers give them high-caloric
food to snack on. Instead of
giving them Oreos and milk or
other trans-fat-laden cookies,
give them a banana, apple or

Obesity is to be differenti-
ated from the disease of el-
ephantiasis (a rare condition)
and edema (excess retention
of fluids).
Obesity has caught the eye
of many nutritionists and diet
fads: Dr. Joe Kasof when he
said, "the dimmer the light
is, the higher the likelihood
of overindulgence; in a study
of the University of Califor-
nia, by assuming the brighter
lighting forces you to be more
aware of what you're eating!
By sitting indoors or near
windows, using brighter bulbs.
in your lamps, adding lighting
to eating area, or moving to a
brighter room."
So, you see, even lighting
has to do with obesity.
Since parents contribute
to a child's obesity, parents
should be shopping for health-
fiul foods instead of catering
to their children's tastes or
whims.
The government has no
business in dictating to the
individual citizen, but has
an obligation to dictate to the
food manufacturers to list the
contents of.the calories in bold.
print for consumers to view.
However, the food companies
like Kraft Foods, Inc. has taken
the initiative to make their
foods more healthful. The com-
pany has removed trans-fat
from various products such as
crackers and cookies, reduced
sodium contents in its well
liked Oscar-Mayer Lunchables,
and reformulated some of its
bestsellers Food manufac-
turers invariably make food
taste sveet adjusted to the
children's tastes. Parents must
break this cycle of foods that
taste sweet are better, and sub-
stitute fruits and fruit drinks in
children's diets.
All surgeries have their
risks, especially surgery that


1 cuts the stomach to the size
ofa normal fist, to give the pa-
tient a full feeling when he/she
eats small amounts of foods.
Surgical intervention should
be the last resort of the person
who contemplates reducing
his/her stomach size to a nor-
mal fist. This-is indicated when
a person is inordinately obese,
350 pounds or more!
While throwing a party or
watching a sitcom, instead
of the "usual" fare of snacks,
which include potato chips,
dips, soft drinks with a half
cup of sugar in each can,
chocolates, etc., substitute
these with healthful and en-
joyable ones, such as grapes,
apples, bananas, nuts and
fruit drinks.
However, there is even a
limit when it comes to indulg-
ing in healthful foods because
the', carry calories too! So, a
moderate indulgence in fruits
and vegetables is indicated.
Exercise is predominate

enough to burn the calories

a disorganized thing, when you
have nothing better to do, but
incorporate it into your normal

I made it a point to lose 20
pounds by cutting my meals

ing on a stationary bicycle. To
my surprise, my body became

The Ghost of Lake Seminole


-PIN

.. .:



.. "- I '3r
I/ : ... .


Do you notice something missing from this picture?


Dr. Lauren Ball and David
Krause are a happily mar-
ried couple who moved to the
shores of Lake Seminole near
Bainbridge, Georgia last Au-
gust. David and Lauren own
and operate Indoor Air Solu-
tions, a thriving environmental
consulting business. Outdoors
people of the first magnitude,
David and Lauren often visited
the outdoors for getaways from
their busy business lives. But
their ultima te join t dream was
to have a place in the coun-
try they could call home and
where they could enjoy the
outdoors continuously. Their
dream finally b'c:ame reality
when tb.'.fabulous parcel-of
property where they now live
came up for sale.
Lauren and"David's home
is surrounded by forest except
for the road frontage and Lake
Seminole. Wildlife is abundant
in the surrounding woods as
well as in their property. An
avid hunter, David set up some
deer feeding stations and some
blinds from where he could
observe and occasionally hunt
deer and other game. During
this year's hunting season,
David bagged his first buck
deer from his stand on his
property.
Having, satisfied his desire
for venison, David continued
to monitor the deer that con-
stantly passed through his


property. At a distance, he
observed several nice bucks
with outstanding antlers, but
he could hot be sure as to their.
quality and age. In pursuit of
his curiosity for the quality
and quantity of animals in his
property, David installed a mo-
tion-sensor camera that would
take pictures of animals as
they passed. Several pictures
were. taken by the instrument
of various deer and other game
animals.
On January, 10, an amaz-
ing picture was taken by the
camera. A three legged deer
was photographed feeding near
the camera. The clear photo
showed an animal in. perfect
shape and apparent good
health. The eight point buck
appeared to weigh about 130 to
145 pounds and had'no other
visible sign of injury.
The photo gave rise to many
speculations as to the reason
for the missing leg. Was the
deer injured by a predator
when young, was the injury the


result of an ill placed shot by
a hunter, or did the deer snag
his leg on a fence as we have
seen on other occasions?
While we will never know the
reason for the deformity, we do
know the resilience of these
animals and their ability to
withstand and survive serious
trauma. On many occasions,
hunters have harvested ap-
parently healthy an uninjured
deer that have interior scar
tissue caused by different in-
juries. Some are clearly the ef-
fect of fights with other bucks,
others are evidently pellets or
bullet fragments, other inju-
ries are unmistakably caused
by predator attacks that the
injured anlma.l survived.
The deer in the picture has
never been seen again during
the day or night by person or
by camera. But David is out
there when time permits, look-
ing for monster bucks for
next year's hunt and for
the elusive ghost of Seminole.
Lake.


Pats Are Indeed a Dynasty


With a 24-21 victory over
the Philadelphia Eagles in
Super Bowl XXXIX, the New
England Patriots became only
the second team to win three
Super Bowls in four years (the
other being the Dallas Cowboys
of 1992-1995). What makes
the Patriots' accomplishments
so very special is that they did
it in an age where salary cap
and free agency makes the NFL
a league of great parody and
competition. It is very difficult
for teams to remain consis-
tently good over the span of
several years nowadays. It's a
different situation than what
we saw with the Pittsburgh
Steelers of the 1970s and the
San Francisco 49ers of the
1980s. Unlike those Steelers
and 49ers, the Patriots of to-
day don't have any major
superstars; they just play so
well as a team.
New England wide receiver
Deion Branch had a Super
Bowl record-tying 11 recep-
tions for 133 yards and was
named the game's MVP. Quar-
terback Tom Brady, the MVP
of Super Bowls XXXVI and
XXXVII, was as cool and col-
lected as always, making the
right throws at the right times
and never making any crucial
mistakes. The same cannot be
said about Eagles QB Donovan
McNabb who, despite throwing
for an impressive 357 yards
and three touchdowns; threw
three costly interceptions, one
of them near the Patriots' goal
line, which ended a Philadel-
phia scoring threat in the first
half.
The talk of Super Bowl
XXXIX revolved around Eagles
wide receiver Terrell Owens,
who was planning to be on
the field come game time de-
spite having broken an ankle
late in the regular season.
Many felt that the chances of
the Eagles winning the Super
Bowl would depend on Owens'


health. The doctor who per-
formed the surgery on Owens'
injured ankle refused to grant
him medical clearance to play.
Some believed him to be fool-
ishly risking further injury by
playing in the game. Owens
emphatically silenced all critics
by turning in a brilliant Super
Bowl performance, catching
nine passes for 122 yards.
In the end, it wasn't enough for
the Eagles.
Two major pieces of New
England's championship puz-
zle will not be with the Patriots
Sfor the 2005 season. Offensive
coordinator Charlie Weis will
take over as head coach at
Notre Dame and defensive co-
ordinator Romeo Crennel will
coach the Cleveland Browns.
Bill Belichick has now so-
lidified himself as one of the
all-time great coaches in NFL
history, but one has to wonder
if losing Weis and Crennel will
hurt the Patriots in the upcom- -
ing season.
New England has had a
remarkable run the last two
seasons and became the first
team to repeat as Super Bowl
champions since the 1997-
1998 Denver Broncos. QB
Tom Brady may not steal the
spotlight like Peyton .Manning
or Brett Favre, but the young
man now has three Super Bowl
rings to show off. Everything
just seems to go right for this
-ball club. They have the chem-
istry without the big egos. The
Patriots just know how to win
and they have rightfully
earned their spot as one
of the all-time great teams in
NFL history.

I was somewhat apprehen-
sive when I was asked by a
friend of mine to accompany
him and Republican Congress-
man Butch Otter to Cuba last
April. After all, it had been 43
years since my mother brought
my sister and me to "-El Exilio,"
and how it would look for such
a staunch Democrat to travel
with a conservative Republican
from Idaho?!
I was born in Santa Clara,
Cuba, on October 7, 1959,


revolution my father named his
first son "Omar Fidel Medina."
During' 1959, my father and
many of his friends supported
the revolutions. My father
was named by Castro as the
Provincial leader of the 30th of
November Movement.
After Castro came to power,
my father and his friends real-
ized that the Castro govern-
ment was not going to deliver
what was promised during
their revolutionary campaign.

to Omar Pedro Medina and
Zulima Carimern Delatorre. My
father was a unr..ersir, class-
mate of an anti-government
-rebel known as Fidel Castro.
Like manr Cubans of the time,
initially my father was a sup-
porter of GCastro's revolution.
In a show of support for the


Voicing his displeasure and
being the former provincial
coordinator for the 30th of
November Movement, my fa-
ther was not allowed to leave
Cuba with my mother, sister
and me on the U.S. supported
"Freedom Flights:" In February
1961, my mother, sister and I


were allowed to leave Cuba on
the U.S. sponsored Freedom
Flights. We landed in Miami
and were quickly processed
through the refugee center.
My father stayed behind with
promises that he would join us
as soon as he could. He along
with four of his friends had ar-
ranged for a boat to bring them
to Key \ est.
My father had to hide out
in a cave on the coast of Cuba
for three days waiting for the
right time to leave. His boat left
Cuba on April 8, 1961, headed
for Key West. They had only
saltine crackers and water for
provisions. There was no navi-
gational equipment or maps.
Eventually his boat was picked
up 140 miles off of Marathon
Key by the "Ethes Jane II" out
of Cape Colony Beach..
Once in the U.S., my father
quickly became part of the
anti-Castro movement. He was
in the Bay of Pigs as part of
"Brigada 2506." The anti-Cas-
tro sentiment ran very strong
in my Family-.and I had con-
cerns about returning to Cuba
while Castro was still in power.
As I grew older, my longing to
visit the place where I was born
had grown stronger. I wanted
to visit Cuba but I did not want
to offend my family.
Prior to deciding to visit
Cuba, I contacted and spoke
with my uncles'as well as
the surviving members of the
"Brigada 2506," which includ-
ed the men'that traveled to the
U.S. with my father in the small
sailboat. To my surprise, these
80 year old Cuban-Americarn i
all expressed anti-embargo,
anti-travel ban positions while
still maintaining their strong
anti-Castro sentiment. "Castro
is just another leader who is
taking advantage of his people
and living in the 60s," stated
Isidoro Pineiro, who worked for
Castro on the 30th of Novem-
ber Movement and who con-
tinues to hold his anti-Castro
sentiments. "The embargo has
done nothing to depose Castro
- go and do what you can to
help our family," stated my 84
year old uncle Gabriel Medina.


His sister; Zunilda Medina who
is 85 years old, still lives in
Havana.
The men of "Brigada 2506"
are very proud of their partici-
pation in the Bay of Pigs and
have very strong anti-Castro
sentiments. I remember at my
father's funeral how his Bay of
Pigs.comrades all paid their re-
spects and draped his coffin in
the battalion flag. All of these
men despised Castro but yet to
a map they all thought a differ-
ent approach toward Cuba was
necessary. If these Bay of Pigs


veterans all supported lifting
the travel ban and the em-
bargo, where are the statistics
that the government publishes
coming from?
I arrived in Havana on April
10, 2004, almost 43 years to
the day when my father landed
in the United States. From the
politicians who met our del-
egation to the taxi driver who
drove us around Havana, every
Cuban embraced us warmly.
When these people found out
that I was a native Cuban re-

turning to Cuba for the first
time, I was treated like a long,
lost brother who had finally
returned.
Surprisingly, while explor-
ing old Havana, I encountered
thousands of tourists from all
over the world-Europeans,
Canadians, South Americans,
Mex.icanis, only the United
States was not properly rep-
resented. In fact, most Cu-
bans thought that we were
Canadians. Once we identified
ourselves as Americans, they
embraced us with renewed
passion.
On my second, day in Ha-
vana, I set out rt:. find and visit
my aunt, who had riot seen me
since I was burn. I found the
house .;.here she was living.


It was a ridiculously small ef-
ficiency that was once part of
a much larger home. My aunt
looked very frail and in need of
medicine that she did not get
as often as she needed. Most of
the furniture in her apartment
pre-dated the revolution.
I cannot fully express the
pangs of guilt that ran through
me while I visited with her.
Compared to her I was living
like a king in the United States
and they had barely enough
to eat. I left her house, leaving
behind all of the money that I
had in my pocket along with
promises to do what. I could

The following day I arranged
for a driver to take me to see

half hours from Havana, where
my mother was born and grew
up. I had promised my mother
to visit the gravesite of her
parents and leave flowers on
their graves, something she
has never been able to do since
both of her parents passed
away while she was in the
United States.
Cienfuegos is a beautiful
beach resort backing up to
the Caribbean. As I drove into
town, I could picture it in its


heyday. 'Today, like much of
Cuba, it is rundown.
I was able to contact a
cousin of mine who still lives
in the house my mother grew
up in. I was anxious to see the
home as I had recalled all of the
stories that my mother told me
of her growing up in this beau-
tiful beach town; My grandfa-
ther had been a well-known
attorney and "procurador" in
Cienfuegos. By the standards
of the day, my mother's family


lived fairly well.
When I found the house
where my mother grew up, it
had been divided three ways
by the government to allow
three families to reside there.
This cousin, whom I had never
seen and who had only seen
me as an infant, took me in as
though I had never left. The
furniture was all in perfect con-
dition and all of it seemed to
pre-date the revolution. I was

treated to an unexpected gift
by one of my mother's cousins
who had saved for rie the sign
that had hung outside of my
grandfather's law office from
1920 until the revolution. It-
is simply a bronze plate that
.read, "Justo Delatorre-Prou-
curador." My cousin told me
that he knew that someday I
would return to Cuba and that
the sign rightfully belonged to
me. The gesture touched me
very deeply. Again, those feel-
ings of guilt and powerlessness
overwhelmed me.
I left my mother's home
again leaving behind all of the
money that I had in ny pockets
and \.ith more promises of as-
sistance in the future. On the
drive back to Havana. [ engaged
in a long conversation with my
taxi driver, an engineer by
trade, who drives a taxi in the
tourist section for the "dollars"
that he's paid. He expressed
to me his bewilderment as to
why Americans refuse to help:
Cubans even though they have
never burned an American flag
nor killed an American while e
other countries who disrespect
the flag, the country and the
people receive aid. They do not
understand the hypocrisy of
our policy.
While in Cuba .I traveled
without restriction, never once-


seeing a soldier or a policeman
with a gun, never once seeing
an anti-American slogan. All
of the Cubans I encountered
spoke freely with me. Cubans
want change, they want what
we in the United States have,
but they want to do so on their
terms not on terms dictated by
anyone else.
I returned from my trip mad.
Mad at my government for not
only forbidding me from help-
ing my family, but actually tak-
Sing pro-active steps to prevent
me from helping them. That
act of. lunacy applies only to
Cubans not any other nation-
ality on the planet. I live in the
greatest, most free country in
the history of mankind, yet my
government ties my hands and
does not allow me to help my
own family as I .see fit. -
The pro-embargo, pro-travel
ban group has fooled our rep-
resentatives in Florida. It is the
Florida contingency that holds
the key to changing how the
United States interacts with
Cuba. I support Jim Davis and
Bill Nelson and consider them
both intelligent men who are
working hard to not only help
Floridians but all Americans.
I am proud to consider them
my friends. However, on this
issue, they have been.blinded
by those who seek to promote
only their own self-interests

and self-importance.
The pro-embargo, pro-travel
ban group cannot point to any
evidence that the embargo
and travel, ban have moved
Cuba any closer to democracy,
yet they continue to espouse
this losing policy. It is time
to move forward. It is time for
our leaders to lead not follow.
How is it that the USA alone
isolates Cuba from the world
community? More importantly
how is it that our government
considers helping my family an
act of treason! It is up to our
representatives to do the right
thing, do the morally correct
thing and to change our poli-
cies towards Cuba.
More than anything, I want
the Cuban people to have
freedom of speech, freedom of
assembly, free elections. Any
person or persons who. believe
that they and they alone know
what is best for the populous
is, in my mind, evil. The people
should have the right to choose
for themselves in which direc-
tion to go. However, 'I believe
that the best way to effectuate
.this change in Cuba is throu gh
engagement not isolation It is
through allowing and fostering
free enterprise.
Americans are dying every
day in Iraq in an effort to con-
vert Iraq into a democracy and
bring American democratic
values to that part of the world.
Ninety miles from our coast
there are 10 million Cubans who
actually want our help. We can
help bring democratic ideals
to Cuba without firing a shot,
yet we refuse to do so. To our
elected officials I say lead.
How can we as a people and
or country support a position
that has done nothing to fur-
ther its goal' In these times
when the world is becoming
such a difficult place, w.e need
to bring the world closer to-
gether not father apart. The
Cuban people have a shared,
hemispheric moral and reli-
gious value with Americans
and it is time to bnng them
into our community.

In January 1935, a good
friend of the Salesian Sis-
teis, Alicia Neve, who lived in
Tampa, deeded her home at
315 W. Columbus Dr. to the
Salesian Sisters to be used for
the education of children. The
property was named 'Villa Ma-
donnadella Neve,' Our Lady of
the Snow, both to honor Mary,
the mother of God, and the
generous w.idov, \\ho donated

mHE V ELLO! P"u x1i


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:
ferdieluis'@aol.com
Robert Pacheco was driving
in a small VW Bug through the
rugged mountains and deserts
of South Mexico. Somewhere
south of the capital the air
conditioner conked out. It
was stifling and, to add to his
discomfort, his stomach was a
cauldron of acidic chili he was
trying to digest. It burned and
occasionally he burped up a
mouthful of acid. He had his
bottles of water, and he had
to stop and rinse his mouth.
He. was desperately unhappy,
but his work required him
to drive down this back road
until he reached the Gulf of
Mexico. Somewhere he would
'find a tiny village untouched
by time.
Pacheco was an advance
man for a movie company. He
was looking for a location for
his movie, "The Conquest of
Mexico," a historic movie based
on Cortez and his Conquista-


dores incredible victory over
the Aztecs. The movie com-
pany hired Pacheco because
he was the leading amateur
historian on the subject and
carried a book by Bernal Diaz,
an autobiography by a real
conquistador. For Pacheco, it
was a labor of love, he felt like
he was robbing the gringos (he
had been in Mexico so long that
he now referred to all Ameri-
cans as gringos, although his
Mexican friends all knew him
by the name, El Gringo.)
It was getting .to be four
in the afternoon. The un-
merciful sun was burning a
hole in the roof. He hit a long
straight stretch of road. There,
in the midst of the tallMexican
mountain ranges, was a level
plane of land. At the end of
it, about 20 miles away, was
a small village. As soon as he
made it out, the first thing
he saw as he got closer was
a tall Yellow Palm tree. As he
got closer he saw the cross on
top of the church. He looked
through his binoculars, for he
thought it may be a mirage.
No, it was a tiny settlement
of adobe huts, built in the
Spanish style. A small square
held the fountain from which
the settlement drew its water.
The church, though modest by
Colonial standards, was small,
poor, -but kept. There were a
few shops and a cantina. On


one corner, the best Colonial
building of all, the City Hall.
Pretentious, thought Pacheco
and his heart beat fast as he
noticed what he did not see.
He doesn't see electric wires,
he didn't see vegetation, it
was all dry and dusty. Just
the ticket!
He stopped at the cantina
and went in where he was al-
ready tasting a cool La Corona
beer sliding down his parched
throat, putting out the fire in
his stomach.
It wasn't much cooler inside,
although it was in the shade.
He sat in a rickety straw chair
that looked like it dated back
to the Conquistadors.
No one came. He called out.
No one came. He walked to the
door and called out in Spanish
to a boy playing with a boy.
"Esta Alguien aqui?" he
called to the boy. The boy
straightened up, as if shot
in the butt: by an arrow, and
without answering, ran hur-
riedly to the city hall as he
went, "Alcade! Alcade! Alcade!
Un gringo lo quiere ver."
Above the door, in mud
letters that were long ago
crumbling apart, was the sign:
Avuntamlento." Most of the
letters had cracked and fallen
away.
Such a huge sign for so
modest a building. Robert
laughed out loud.
Tn short order, a small bald
fat man came out tucking in
his shirt.
"Estamos cerrado (We're
closed)." Then seeing the VW
with the Movie Company logo,
he switched to broken but un-
.derstandable English


"We're closed for Siesta.
Come back at 6." Then, as if or-
ganizing his thoughts, he said,
"Unless you need something
from the Cantina."
"Well, yes. Una cerveza.
Comida, perono, mejicana,"
Robert said, feeling like a jerk
as soon as he said it. The man
laughed. He spread his hands
and swept them around.
"Pos! Si estasen Mejico! No
Yanqui food here."
"Well, so long as it isn't
hot."


"In Mexico?" he laughed
good naturedly. He pointed to
his stomach. "Bad stomach?
On fire?"
"Oh yes, .BIG FIRE. Need
Cervesa Pronto."
Once seated at the little
table he poured down half a
glass of La Corona. It felt great.
He chugged the other half and
belched loudly.
The mayor bought another
beer for the guest and one for
himself.

-"Look, Mister Gringo, let's
not waste your time and mine.
This is Siesta time. No one here
is awake. There is no cafe here.
There is no electricity or run-
ning water. We are living in the
eighteenth century. No one can
live here but us, because we've
been here since Bernal Diaz
and his Conquistadores came
through here and knocked up
every Indian girl. That is why
all Mexico is Meztizo."
"I know all about that. It's
what I do, studyLa Con-
quista."
"Chimgada! Study that crap
for a living? Who is stupid
enough to give money for that?
Look, it's this simple, when the
Spaniard came through there
were 20 million Aztecs. Twenty
years later there were two mil-
lion Aztecs left, all Catholics.
Of course, they left about 18
million illegitimate Mextizos
in that time. So Mexico kind
of balanced out." He swigged
down the entire beer. "You pay
for my beer?"
"Certainly." Robert left
three American dollars on the
counter. He started to get up.
He wasn't going to leave, he
wanted to walk the few streets
and look at the adobe huts of
sleeping peons. But the mayor,
face to face with real money,
jumped to restrain him.
"No, no. No leave. I wake
up Luisita. She make you
lunch. Then you sleep thru
Siesta and tonight we have a
big cena (supper) for you. Then
if you leave, like the Conquis-
tadores, you eat and leave."
He laughed uproariously at
his joke, and he was so full of


himself that Robert couldn't
restrain himself and laughed
long and hard.
He disappeared as Robert
walked to the door and, Nikon
in hand, photographed the
entire plaza, including the
light brown Mexican kid play-
ing with the ball. There wasn't
a soul in sight. Eventually, he
got brave and walked to the
Cathedral and photographed
it inside and out. It was un-
touched since they'd built it
in 1810. A masterpiece! Just
what he wanted. He did the
fine cobblestone streets and
the fountain. He was close to
being finished when he heard
the mayor.
"Gringo! Oye Gringo! Ven a
courier "
Robert wasn't hungry, but
his stomach had calmed down.
He went in and sat at the table,
set for Lhr-tee
A small conemti',: .. orri.r caime
from trhe kitchen carrying a
tray of hot steaming bowls.
"Ah! The main event!" said
the mayor. Taken aback by
a reference to a boxing term,
he said, "You follow boxing?"
The mayor, laughed, "With
what? We have no electricity.
"But you said main event."
"Oh, once when I was in the
Mexican Army I boxed. I only
did the main event once and
then they knocked me out in
the first round." He laughed
his jolly laugh. Robert did too.
Robert found he was relaxed
and having a jolly great time.
The food smelled delicious.
The wife was unusually
beautiful. She had black, black
eyes, almond in shape, kind of

In celebration the week of February 6 being proclaimed The Krewe of Sant'
Yago Week, on Friday, February 4 at the Columbia Restaurant, the Krewe
of Sant' Yago Education Foundation donated $12,500 to the University of
Tampa to be used for Hispanic scholarships. The Krewe ofSant' Yago Educa-
tion Foundation donates tens of thousands of dollars every year to Tampa's
institutions of higher education the University of Tampa, University of
South Florida, and Hillsborough Community College. The money is raised
throughout the year at various Krewe of Sant' Yago events, such as its golf
tournament, and through individual donations. This year, the donation to
.ne University of Tampa was made in honor ofkrewe member Joe Granda, a
1950 University of Tampa graduate, a founder of both the krewe and Educa-
tion Foundation, and the krewe's El Rey VII, who now donates office space
to the Education Foundation and pays for the office bills. The donation in his
name was a complete surprise to Granda. Pictured: (above) Hillsborough
County School Board Member Jack Lamb looks on as University of Tampa
President RonVaughn accepts the $12,500 donation from krewe member Dr.

sloping. They seemed to be set
in a bowl of smooth, silky light
brown shine, which stretched
over high check bones of an Az-
tec God. Her nose was thin, it's
end a sculpted rarity and it led
to an unbelievable sumptuous
mouth, whose main attraction
was a full perfectly formed top
lip, the bottom lip formed a
delicious foundation for the top
lip. Her chin was pointed and
with a Cary Grant dimple. Her
eyes danced with merriment
and invitation when she put a
steaming bowl of soup in front
of him. His mouth watered, but
he was having trouble making
his mind behave, for she wore
a loose fitting blouse, which
revealed two perfectly formed
breasts. He shut his eyes tight
and swore to behave himself.
After all, the mayor and his
wife were offering him their
best hospitality. They were not
offering him themselves.
"Esto es Menudo. First we
cure the stomach, then we
eat!" She smiled a pearly smile.
"After the men get borracho
the next morning, they are
very sick. Menudo fix them
right up."
Menudo is a soup with hom-
ing corn, and tripe and vari-
ous secret ingredients. First
you eat.
"Then we rest for 15 min-
utes."
"Si, and Luisita she sing
and dance and play the gui-
tar she very good. Time
passes fast."
"Oh boy," said Robert,- sip-
ping the hot'delicious soup.
"Menudo, eh? I feel cured
already."
"No. We wait 15 minutes,
then we eat. You see. You'll di-
gest your food good. And then
the Siesta! And then we tell'
stories, you'll tell us your story.
And then we eat, and then you
sleep in our house."
The two beers made him
a little high and the Meiudo
made him feel healthy and
well, and the vivacious Luisita
had lit his fire, more-so as she
danced and sang and. for a fin-
ish played her guitar. As they
finished a lunch of Tamales
with a bland corn paste and
some mole and a-fresh salad
of guacamole, Luisita took him
by the hand to City Hall. In the.
main, and ONLY room,; there
was a big overstuffed couch.
"The last Spaniard left that
couch there after the Revolu-
tion of 1910. He left in a hurry,"


she laughed a delicious throaty
laugh and pushed Robert's
chest so that he fell on the
couch. She straddled his legs
and removed his shoes. "Keep
your shirt on, when the sun
disappears, the desert turns to
an air conditioner and it gets
cold. Relax here, Roberto, you
will feel safe. I leave you some
tea, of my secret formula. It will
cure any upset stomach you
will ever have!"
.So saying that, she skipped
out of the room and closed the
door. Robert sipped the tea. It
was delicious and soothing.
His eyes were closing, heavy
with sleep, and he was star-
ing straight up to a cloudless
sky, and he focused on a
very tall Yellow Palm. It was
a Royal Palm. He had never
seen a Royal Palm in all of
Mexico. He promised himself
to photograph it in color. There
was no vegetation in the vil-
lage. No color. All was adobe
brown. Why? He dropped- off
to a sound sleep, visions of the
vivacious Luisita and the off
yellow Royal'Palm.
Supper was even better. The
town, such as it was, brought
a chicken, cooked in their
own way, refried beans, gua-
camole, mole sauce, tomales,
sopajoilla, and, in honor of the
gringo, no chili or hot stuff. At
the end, a heart breaking great
bread pudding made by Luisita
while Robert slept.
Soon, they cleared away the
dishes, each family in charge
of their own leftovers. They
moved the few chairs there
were in the Cantina against the
wall. They opened all windows
and soon the dessert air cooled
.the room until it was downright
c h l!':... -,
"Una cancion," yelled the
mayor, taking Luisita by the
hand.
"La Palma!" said a burly
old man. "Tell about La Palma
Amarilla! They all yelled and
yelled until Luisita hit the first
chord, then they fell silent.
It was a long and romantic
tale about a Spaniard who
came and conquered a beauti-
ful A'ztec princess. He is called
back,k, Spain. Of course, he
cannot take-her hack.-She does
not believe _him..He .has with
him a little plan t. It i a pite-
'ous yellow plant 'Plant this,"
he says, "by the time it grows
up tall and straight and open,
I will be back for you."
Of course, she believes him.
And the plant does grow tall,


strong and straight as an ar-
row, but, it never turns green.
It remains yellow, and until
she dies, she will not move
from this village, waiting for it
to turn green."
Everyone sat mesmerized
by the tale, as if hearing it for
the first time. Of course, for
Robert, it was the first time and
he was bewitched.
He had spent all of his adult
life studying Mexican history.
But, here, he felt he was living
in that period, he was part of
Old Mexico. The yellow Royal
Palm was gigantic, the tallest
thing in the village, and it had


an eerie effect on Robert. He
couldn't shake off its image.
He closed his eyes and it was
there, shimmering in the late
afternoon sun a bright yel-
low.
When it came Robert's turn,
he asked if they really knew
the story of La Conquista. No
one did. Robert picked one of
the most exciting chapters.
The Night of Long Lances!
It was a bloody story filled
with intrigue, double cross.
The Aztecs had trapped the
conquering Spaniards in the
Palace. They rebelled one night
and attacked them. Spaniards


had access to the rooms filled
with gold and jewels of all kind.
The regular soldiers were told
to take all the gold they could
carry. The officers took the pre-
cious stones.
Mexico City was built on a
series of canals, like Venice.
The Indians took the bridges,
the Conquistadores, loaded
with stolen gold, jumped into
the canals to swim across.
Loaded with gold, they sunk to
the bottom and drowned. The
officers carried long lances.
They had light weight dia-
monds and rubies. They used

the lances to pole vault over
the canals, and thus escaped
the Aztecs. It was called, "The
Night of the Long Lances."
The entire village had lis-
tened open mouthed to this
history of their own race. After
all, they carried Aztec blood as
well as Spanish blood. They
knew nothing of the actual
details of the Conquista. '
"Mas!" said the mayor and
the crowd as one stood up
yelling and applauding. Robert
was flattered and amazed by
the approval and the insistence
for more. But it was growing
late ...
He felt a soft hand on his. It
was Luisita, taking him gently
by the hand to the middle of
the crowded room.
"Una cuenta mas, Pachqeuin.
Por favor."
"In honor of Luisita, who
gave us such a joy with the
Legend of the Yellow Palm,
and who filled out hearts with
love with her dancing and
singing, I'll do one more. This
is called The Night of the Long
Knives."
They burst into applause.
With a name like that, it had
to be bloody. Maybe this time
the Indians would win.
He finished the bloody tale
to a thunderclap of applause.
The mayor hugged and kissed
him, and forced Luisita on him.
for a hug and a kiss, although,
if truth be told, she didn't need
to be forced to kiss the tall
gringo with the great voice and
the great way to tell a story.
Everyone, reluctantly, went
home. No one could remember
ever having stayed up past
midnight. Not since they had

Christmas Eve.
When they got to the may-
or's house, which .was just a
humble addition to the main
room of the Ayuntimiento, the
mayor lost no time in heading
for the bedroom. It was small,
made to look even smaller by
a huge four poster, which filled
the room.
"The Revolution of 1910,"
said Robert laughing. The
mayor shrugged. "Muerte a los
guachupines!" he said. "Some-
body had to get something from
all that butchery. We got a sofa
and a bed."
"We are way ahead of the
rest of Mexico," Luisita said,
a touch of flirting in her voice,
Robert thought.
"I'll sleep on the sofa. I was
quite comfortable for my Si-
esta," Robert volunteered.
"No! Sofa is for Siesta. Bed
for night."
"Yes, but," said Robert, pic-
turing himself on the floor.
"Look at it, my dear Gringi-
to, it is an ocean. It is huge. We
three will sleep in it. I'm in the
middle, you two on either side
to guard me against maraud-
ers." She giggled a delicious
laugh, and in the penumbral
gloom of the room, she pulled
her blouse over her head, leav-
ing her perfect breasts exposed
to the night air.
Robert turned away immedi-
ately. The mayor laughed as he
took off his shoes and pants.
She laughed a throaty laugh
as she pulled her camisole over
her mountain of hair.
"Come gringita, take off your
clothes and come to bed. No
one is going to attack us. And
look," she pointed to a window
in the, roof where he saw a daz-
zling sight, the shimmering
Yellow Palm, tall and stately

and strong.
"The Yellow Palm. She pro-
tects me, gringito. Nothing will
happen here."
And so they woke in the
morning, three people rolled
up tight like sardines in a
can, arms around each other,
snuggled close, they had slept
the..night away like babies.
"We'll make our movie here.
I'll make you rich. "I'll bring
electricity to town, telephones,
television, and a water pump to
irrigate the town and the val-
ley. A new era is coming. You
are all saved!"
"Ai Que Bueno!" said the
mayor, greedily envisioning
millions in American pesos.
"We'll see," said Luisita,
pressing a bag of rhizomes and
roots of desert, which could
heel any stomach discomfort.
"We'll see, gringito. Don't eat
hot chilis, and remember ...
remember ..."
"I will," said Robert, but
his mind was filled with great
things of the last 24 hours.
"Of the Yellow Palm tree,"
she said, and kissed him seri-
suously on the mouth.

Part II
Four Years Later
Robert Pacheco was now a
power in Hollywood as a result
of his blockbuster hit "Cortez
and the Conquest of Mexico."
In one year, it had taken in
$250 million gross nationally,
with at least an equal amount
internationally. One of the big
critical acclaim was directed at
the locale of the shoot, its real-
ity, and the cast of the Indians
he had assembled. Of course,
La Palma became famous and
every resident became wealthy


beyond their dreams.
Robert, on the other hand,
found that he could not stom-
ach the deceit, duplicity, moral
turpitude, and rampaging drug
use in Hollywood. He hated the
place, and hated the people.
One day, after a particularly
disgusting story conference
with a studio head, he got into
his Porsche and decided to
drive quietly to the Palm and
visit his old friends. He felt in
need of a hot dish of Menudo
and could stand a nice song
and dance from Luisita.
He'd prepared a nice story to
tell the townsfolk about when
the Spaniards had kidnapped
Montezuma, and his own peo-
ple had stoned him to death.
And, he wondered what irri-
gation had done to the Yellow
Palm. Had it turned green?
The first thing he saw was
a large garish sign straddling
the highway:
Welcome to Yellow Palm
Then a mile further on an
official sign post:
La Palma de Pacheco
Pop. 10,000 City Limits -
House of the Movie: Cortez
and the Conquest of'Mexico
He felt sick, as if some-
one had punched him in the
stomach.
The fields around the ap-
proaches to the town were
now green. Vegetation had
eliminated the desert. There
was a line of vehicular traffic
inching slowly forward to a big
traffic circle. With difficulty,
Robert recognized it as the
fountain and square. It was
still paved with cobblestones,
the fountain left alone stood
pumping water, but no cars
were allowed to stop or park.
Only one Kiosk was allowed to


do business. Robert wondered
who had that much pull to be
allowed to do business there
when no one else could.
He went straight to the
Ayuntimiento. It was restored
and served as the sumptu-'
ous entrance to the luxury
hotel, the Palms Hilton. Off to
the side was the office of the
mayor. He went in expecting
the worst and he was not dis-
appointed. A slick young man
in a fancy suit with manicured
nails and slicked back hair
greeted him.
"What an honor. You're the
man that started all this," he
said, extending his hand.
"Where's the old mayor?"
"He died."
"Of what?" Robert asked.
"Affluence," the slick mayor
said. Seeing confusion on
Robert's face, he asked Robert
to have a seat, while he turned
his back and snorted a line of
coke.
"You see Mr. Pacheco, these
folks lived all their lives with-
out vices. There were only 100
people when you got here. They
didn't drink during the.week,
only a few would get drunk on
Saturday, and there wasn't
any hanky panky. There wasn't
much to do and what little
work they did was mainly to
have something to eat every-
day. There was no money. They
made their own clothes and
shoes. No electricity. They were
virtual cave dwellers.
"Then you showed up with
unlimited cash. You bought
the entire town. Why, you even
bought the Yellow Palm! And
you made every citizen rich.
You made actors of the lot. Of
the rich. Of the whole bunch,
only Luisita and the little boy


in the square had talent, and
Luisita had no interest in fame
and fortune. She liked life in
a small town with her good
for nothing mayor husband.
She hated L.A. and the SPOT-
LIGHT. Things were great and
then you left. Then land specu-
lators came in. They bought
up the homes and tore them
down. They built motels and
hotels, a mall, a condo, a game
park built around the -movie.
Even a weight reduction clinic.
The desert! Just the place for
healthy living. The place filled
up with movie people, then the
people in Mexico City found out
that the stars were here in the
rehab center they built next to
the weight reduction clinic and
plastic surgery hospital.
"What it did was force the
townsfolk out. It killed them.
All 100 of them tried to keep
up with the Hollywood crowd.
That meant drunkenness and
coke and pot. To people who
had lived their entire lives
without any drugs, it was a
quick death sentence. They
died off."
"Is there no one left?" he
asked, thinking of the beauti-
ful Luisita, now a widow, if she
survived. He would really like
to see her.
"You can ask Marin Cor-
tez."
"Who?"
"You named him that for
the movie. He played the Aztec
prince adopted by Cortez."
"Ah, the kid by the foun-
tain."
"He is still there. The city let
him set up a business by the
fountain. He sells 8x10 stills of
himself and movie stars on the
set, doing a scene, etc. He has
learned how to forge names,


so he will sell you a DeNiro,
Jimmy Smits, or Banderas, or
Selma Hayek without breasts
for $10, with breasts for $25."
He smiled at Robert's look of
confusion.
"I don't follow that."
"He had a scene when he
was in his bed. He is about
to be killed. Selma as Dona
Marina comes in, leans over
the bed and tenderly kisses
his forehead. At the same time,
her boob fell out of her blouse.
The photo has an outtake,
and a cameraman gave him
the negative. That one sells
like hotcakes. He built this
compact kiosk in the front to
sell movie stills, then he has a
camera to take tourist pictures
posing with him, the star of the
film. In the back he has a small
air conditioned room. It has a
shower, a kitchen, a toilet and
a nice comfy bed for two. He
rarely sleeps alone."
"And Luisita?" His heart
quickened.
"You'll have to ask Marin."
He asked the manager what
they have done with the mages-
tic four-poster he had slept in
with Luisita and the mayor.
"We built a luxury suite
around that bed, $500 a night,
all amenities, including com-
pany if you wish."
"Book me for tonight."
"Done," said the manager.
The square was humming
with tourists just idly walking
around. The Old Cantina was
now a large Taco Bell. The
church was a disco, packed ev-
ery night with jetsetters. They
had made a large museum
dedicated to the movie about
the conquest of Mexico. It too
was packed.
