We wish everyone, especially
our union friends, a happy Labor
Day:

Last Thursday, School Board
member Susan Valdes held her
campaign kickoff at the West Tam-
pa Convention Center. Over 175


320


plates of spaghetti were served
to the crowd of supporters. While
the event wasn't a fundraiser, 25
checks were handed in during the
event.
Noticeably absent was the top
echelon of administrators of the
school district. Has Ms. Valdes'


tough grading of the superinten-
dent in the annual review made
her campaign taboo to MaryEllen
Elia's loyal troops?
*****
Local Democratic activist Victor
DiMaio is suing the Democratic
National Committee over their
plan to nulify the results of the
presidential preference primary
on January 29 and replace it with
a caucus. The.suit alleges that
this plan would dilute the minor-
ity vote.
His attorney is Michael Stein-
berg.
*****
Presidential candidate Rudy Gi-
uliani will be the keynote speaker


at the Pinellas County Republican
Executive Committee's (PCREC)
Reagan Day Dinner on Friday,
September 7 at the Renaissance
Vinoy Resort and Golf Club in St.
Petersburg.
This is a very unusual event
in that the proceeds will benefit
the local.Republican Party. It's
unheard of for a presidential
candidate to do a fundraiser for
anyone, but himself with just a
few months to the presidential
primary. In fact, this will be the
last time Giuliani does this in this
election cycle. The PCREC chair-
man, Tony DiMatteo, deserves

This photograph of the Eg-
mont Key Lighthouse was
taken on April 30, 1901.
The first lighthouse at this
site was built in 1848 and
was damaged by a hurri-
cane the same year. Ten
years later, the new tower
was erected the sturcture
which stills stands today.
The lighthouse was once
a kerosene powered light,
and the lightkeeper had to
trudge up 85 steps to get
to the light and fire it up.
In 1939, the U.S. Coast
Guard took over the opera-
tion from the U.S. Light-
house Service. Now, the
lighthouse is powered by
a dual-light electrical sys-
tem that reaches out some
22 miles over the waters of
Tampa Bay, and it is oper-
ated with a switch at the
ground level. By the way,
Egmont Key is actually in
Hillsborough County, not
Pinellas County, as many
people believe.

"Jamas en la historic de las 12 temporadas de existencia de
la MLS se ha visto una pasi6n tan encendida por un jugador
y jams ha habido ningln nombre con un poder de convoca-

mentarista Luis Sanchez, para resaltar el revuelo que ha sus-
.citado entire los norteamericanos la presencia del astro David
Beckham, en el f-itbol-soccer de Estados Unidos. No s6lo se
trata del impact en los medios de comunicaci6n social, en
los cuales el carism6tico Beckham Uena por igual las pagi-
nas deportivas y las del coraz6n, sino tambi6n del arrastre de
masas a los estadios. Cada vez que Los Angeles Galaxy anun-
cian la presencia del britdnico en la cancha, la boleteria se
agota con facilidad. Ademis; Beckham ya ha dado muestras
de su calidad con algunos goles servidos y anotados y lo mis
important, de su pundonor, cuando ha salido a jugar con el

Actualidad dei


America Latina



Brasil
El president brasilefio, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, descarta
cualquier posibilidad de intentar una nueva reelecci6n por
considerar que cuando un politico se cree imprescindible
esta dandole paso a un dictador, pero se abstiene de juzgar
el proyecto de poder del president venezolano, Hugo Chavez.
En una extensa entrevista que public el diario O Estado
de Sao Paulo, Lula afirm6 que consider que ocho aios de
gobierno son suficientes y descarta proponer una reform a
la Constitucion para poder intentar una nueva reelecci6n,
aunque aclara que no se quedara quieto en las elecciones
presidenciales de 2010. Lula dijo tambien que su gobierno
no esta en contra del llamado Gasoducto del Sur, "a priori", ni
contra el Banco del Sur, proyectos del president Chavez que
han enfrentado algunas resistencias en Brasil, y neg6 que
haya divergencias entire los paises de la region. "No creo en la
palabra insustituible. No existe nadie que.no sea sustituible
o que sea imprescindible. Cuando un dirigente politico co-
mienza a pensar que es imprescindible, que es insustituible,
comienza a nacer un dictadorzifio", afirm6 el lider socialist.

Argentina
Tras el escdndalo de la valija que entr6 a Argentina con
799 mil 550 d6lares sin declarar y que le cost el puesto
al director ejecutivo del Organo de Control de Concesiones
Viales (Occovi), Claudio Uberti, el gobierno de N6stor Kirch-
ner design a su reemplazante. El Poder Ejecutivo Nacional
nombr6 oficialmente a Emma Lia Albrieu Cipollina como
director ejecutiva del Occovi, dependiente de la Secretaria
de Obras Publicas del Ministerio de Planificaci6n, que di-
rige Julio De Vido. En los considerandos del decreto se men-
ciona que-Albrieu Cipollina "reuine los requisitos necesarios
conforme lo que acreditan sus antecedentes t6cnicos y profe-
sionales para desempefiar dicho cargo". La nueva funciona-
ria reemplaza en el cargo a Claudio Uberti, cuya renuncia
fue aceptada a trav6s de la Resoluci6n 533 del Registro del
Ministerio de Planificaci6n, con fecha 9 de agosto de 2007.
Uberti, que lleg6 el 28 de mayo del afio 2003 al Organo
de Control de Concesiones Viales, fue uno de los pasajeros
registrados en el vuelo que traslad6 al empresario vene-
zolano-estadounidense Guido Alejandro Antonini Wilson,
portador de la maleta con 799 mil 550 d6lares, desde Ven-
ezuela a Argentina.

Colombia
Tres policies murieron en un ataque de guerrilleros iz-
quierdistas que activaron una bomba en una carretera
del sur de Colombia, al paso de un vehiculo en el que
viajaban los uniformados, informaron las autoridades.
La explosion se registry entire las poblaciones de Alta-
query Ospina Perez, en el departamento de Nariflo, fron-
terizo con Ecuador, aproximadamente 550 kil6metros al
suroeste de Bogota, cuando los policies viajaban para
dispersar un reten de los rebeldes. La policia atribuy6 el
ataque a las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Co-
lombia (FARC), la mayor guerrilla izquierdista que cuen-
ta con alrededor de 17.000 combatientes y dice luchar
por imponer un sistema socialist en este pais de 42 mil-
lones de habitantes con marcadas diferencias entire ricos
y pobres. Esta naci6n es azotada por un violent con-
flicto interno de mis de cuatro decadas que cobra miles
de vidas al afo, la mayoria civiles. Sin embargo, cientos
de efectivos de las Fuerzas Armadas tambien pierden la
vida en medio de la confrontaci6n. El afio pasado, 597
integrantes de las Fuerzas Militares y de Policia mu-
rieron en combates o ataques de la guerrilla,, muchos
de ellos por acci6n de bombas o minas antiperson-
ales.

Bolivia
La huelga en seis de los nueve departamentos bolivianos,
convocada contra el gobierno de Evo Morales y "en de-
fensa de la democracia", segfn sus promotores, comenzo
esta madrugada con incidents violentos en las ciudades
de Santa Cruz oriented ) y Cochabamba centroo). Los ca-
nales de television mostraron imagenes de choques entire
partidarios de la huelga y del gobierno, apedreamiento de
vehiculos, ataques a comercios y restaurants abiertos, e
incluso saqueos, especialmente en Santa Cruz, la mayor
ciudad del pais, una de las mis ricas y donde es fuerte la.

Dia del Trabajo
Es mayo de 1886 en la Plaza
Haymarket de Chicago. Los tra-
bajadores protestan para lograr
lajornada laboral de ochos horas
que el president Andrew John-
son habia instaurado mediante
la Ley Ingersoll. Los patrons se
niegan a cumplirla y los sindica-
tos de trabajadores organizan y
paralizan el pais productive con
mas de 5 mil huelgas. Durante
la manifestaci6n hay una brutal
represi6n por parte de la policia
y estalla una bomba que acaba
con la vida de various policies.
Aunque no se descubre el au-
tor del atentado, cuatro lideres
anarquistas fueron acusados,
juzgados y ejecutados. Nacen
para la historic los llamados
Martires de Chicago.

Los Martires
El 11 de noviembre de
1887, un afio despu6s de los
sucesos, son ejecutados Al-
bert Parsons (estadounidense,
39 ahios, periodista), August
Spies (aleman, 31 afos, pe-
riodista), Adolph- Fischer
(aleman, 30 afos, periodista)
y Georg Engel (aleman, 50
afios, tip6grafo). Antes de su
ejecucion, August Spies pro-
nunci6 estas ultimas palabras:
"Si creeis que ahorcandonos
podeis acabar con el movimien-
to obrero ... el movimieito del
cual los millones de oprimidos,
los millones que laboran en la
miseria y la necesidad esperan
su salvaci6n, si esta es vuestra
opinion, ientonces ah6rcanos!
Aqui pisoteais una chispa, pero


alli y alla, detras de vosotros,
frente a vosotros, y por todas
parties, las llamas surgiran.
Es un fuego subterraneo. No lo
podreis apagar".


Un Testimonio
Jose Marti, quien era cor-
responsal en Chicago del dia-
rio "La Naci6n" de Argentina
describi6 el process de eje-
cuci6n: "...salen de sus cel-
das. Se dan la mano, sonrien.
Les leen la sentencia, les sujetan
las manos por la espalda con
esposas plateadas, les cifien los
brazos al cuerpo con una faja
de cuero y les ponen una mor-
taja blanca como la tinica de
los catecumenos cristianos...
abajo la concurrencia sentada
en hilera de sillas delante del
cadalso como en un teatro... ple-
garia es el rostro de Spies, fir-
meza el de Fischer, orgullo el del
Parsons, Engel hace un chiste a
prop6sito de su capucha, Spies
grita que la voz que vais a so-
focar serd mas poderosa en el
future que cuantas palabras
pudiera yo decir ahora... los en-
capuchan, luego una sefia, un


ruido, la trampa cede, los cuatro
cuerpos cuelgan y se balancean
en una danza espantable...".

Cambio de Fecha


En los Estados Unidos no se
celebra esta fecha por razones
political. El primer Labor Day
fue conmemorado el primer
lunes de septiembre de 1882
en un desfile realizado en
Nueva York y organizado por
la Noble Orden de los Cabal-
leros del Trabajo (Knights of
Labor, en ingles). El presiden-
te Grover Cleveland, auspici6
la celebraci6n en septiembre
por temor a que. la fecha de
mayo reforzase el movimiento
socialist en los Estados Uni-
dos. Y asi se continfa celeb-
rando hasta nuestros dias.

en museo. "Que el venezolano
nos hable de su compatriota",
dijeron mis compafieros y tuve
que encararme con el mito.

Soto en director
Jess Soto se meti6 hasta
los tuetanos en los huesos
abstractos de Kandinsky, Mon-
drian y Malevich. Los tres
habian llevado hasta sus filti-
mas consecuencias el desdibu-
jamiento de la figure humana
que Cezzane, Monet, Renoir,
Degas (ese dream team del im-
presionismo), habian retomado
de su padre, Manet, cuando
este declare su amor por el aire
libre y la luz. La luz exterior es li-
bre y pone a los cuerpos (y a todo
lo que los rodea), a moverse sin el
ideal de perfecci6n apolinea del
Renacimiento. La luz de finales
del siglo XIX baj6 al hombre de.


las estatuas y lo puso a bus-
car su identidad en el vertigo
del XX que comenzaba con
tropiezos. La camara del ojo lo
cogi6 "movido" en el instant
en que huia en busca de si
mismo, y qued6 en el lienzo
como una mancha difusa.
Luego, Kandinsky, Mon-
drian y Malevich, desapa-
recieron la figure porque la
Revoluci6n Industrial, con
sus maquinas seriales y sus
obreros inc6gnitos, convirti6
al "hombre productive" (al an-
tiguo artesano individual),.en
una masa an6nima. S61o qued6
un mapa de la desolaci6n
que ellos intentaron fijar con
sus mallas geometricas, sus
angulos mudos, sus rectan-
gulos pendencieros, llenando
de color y-calor, el vacio que
lleg6 a la exasperaci6n con
la primera guerra mundial.

Cin6tico
El mapa geom6trico de
Mondrian y sus panas tembl6
cuando Soto lleg6 a Paris.
Resulta que Ant6n Prevsnery
y Naum Gabo publicaron en
1920 el manifiesto realista, en
el cual planteaban que el con-
cepto del tiempo y su hermano
gemelo, el espacio, debian
ser incorporados al trabajo
artistic; y, que lo dinamico,
debia sustituir lo estatico de
la obra de arte. Nacia, asi, el
concept del cinetismo como
una variaci6n sobre el mismo
tema del impresionismo, el
abstraccionismo y el cubismo
(el mundo vuelto cubos porque
las bombas lo partieron para
siempre), que pusieron en fuga
a la figure humana. Soto tam-
bien se puso en movimiento
metiendose en la zanja de la
memorial. Regres6 a las aguas
del Orinoco y naveg6 el rio vi-
bratorio hasta llegar al Macizo
Guayanes para leer entrelineas
la caligrafia de sus jeroglifos
ancestrales. Alli estaban las
flores silvestres, solitarias,
espinudas, tiritando desde
siempre sobre la quietud de las
piedras tercas. Soto descifr6


su alfabeto intimo y le puso
otros nombres a sus cuadros:
"Composition Dynamique",
"Structure Cinetique", dis-
parandole a todo cuanto se
moviera para responderle
a los sefiores Prevsnery y
Gabo y, en memorial de rios,
flores y piedras guayanesas.
Despues sus obras tomaron la
calle por asalto y dejaron que
el hombre comfin fuera uno
con sus "Penetrables", unos
hilos de poliuretano que colga-
ban del techo de las galerias,
donde cualquiera se podia
meter como quien entra en la
lluvia colectiva. Fue, quiza,
el mayor desafio democratic
en el mundo artistic desde
los tiempos de la Bauhaus...
Eso fue lo que dije, mis
o menos, en el viejo establo.

Adi6s
Cuando uno deja Madrid
se viene con un hueco en el
alma. Al bajarme del avi6n,
decidi quitarme el guayabo
con un scotch en la barra del
"Brava Mar", un botiquin de la
plaza Castellana caraquefia. Y
alli estaba el maestro con una
morena bien buenamoza como
veinte afios menor. Le eche el
cuento de mi peripecia cine-
tica en Madrid. Tambien le dije
que habia conocido a su hijo
Christophe hacia muchos afios
en Fundarte, la misma insti-
tuci6n que me habia enviado a
Madrid. El me dijo: "lo misico
le viene de mi" y sigui6 con
su chachara de los primeros
afios de Paris, cuando se ga-
naba la vida tocando guitarra
(parece que de verdad era un
cuatro). Brindamos por los
recuerdos y nos despedimos
llenos de nostalgia y alcohol.
Pero todo pasa y todo
queda. Las noticias dicen
que Jesls Soto muri6 a me-
diados de enero en el Paris
del.2005. Cesare Pavese,
italiano, dijo en un poema
terminal: "VerrA la morte e
avra il tuo occhi". Vendra
la muerte y tendrd tus ojos.
iAh!, malaya, Soto, iAdi6s!.

ardson es el segundo candidate

Pele y Maradona


No cabe duda, en la cancha
Pele fue muy superior a Mara-
dona. El brasilero jug6 1363
partidos y anot6 1281 goles,
mientras que el argentino an-
ot6 311 veces en 592 juegos;
con la selecci6n national ca-
narinha Pele marc6 77 veces
en 92 partidos, Maradona con
la albiceleste 34 veces en 91
juegos; en cuatro mundiales
Pele fue camipe6n en tres
oportunidades y complete 12
goles, Maradona fue campe6n
una vez y logr6 8 goles...


Todo lo anterior sin contar
que O Rei Pele fe un modelo
de atleta dentro y fuera de la
cancha, fue un promoter del
juego limpio en todo el orbe, y,
como Ministro del Deporte del
gobierno democratic y mod-
ernizador de Fernando Hen-
rique Cardoso, Pele defendi6
los intereses de los futbolistas
y promovi6 la competencia
sana.
Por su parte Maradona se
entreg6 al consume de sus-
tancias prohibidas y termin6


como un mal ejemplo para la
juventud de todo el planet.
Y como si todo esto fuera
poco, ahora Maradona proc-
lama su amor derretido por el
despota cubano Fidel-Castro y
su c6mplice, el virulento cau-
dillo venezolano Hugo Chavez.
Ademas, no deja de hacerse
dafio a si mismo con el vicio ni
de maltratar a la gente sufrida
de Cuba y Venezuela, alarde-
ando de su amistad con los
victimarios de esos paises.

En Pocas Palabras
Abel lbarra -


Este es el texto de unprograma de television destinado a
comentar el origen de las palabras que conforman nuestro
idioma espariol. Es transmitido todos los jueves a las 11
p.m. por Univisi6n Tampa en el program Noticias 62.
Accesar
La tecnologia es uno de los fen6menos que mas ha con-
tribuido a incorporar palabras a nuestro idioma y, tambien,
la causante de muchos errors que cometemos al traducir
literalmente palabras del ingl6s. Asi ocurre con "Accesar" y
hoy, en Pocas Palabras, vamos a enmendarle la plana.
Accesar es una deformaci6n del verbo ingl6s "to access ,
utilizado cuando se navega superficialmente en las paginas
de Internet, sin sospechar la profundidad de nuestro idioma.
Pero si decidimos sumergirnos en el diccionario del espafiol
encontraremos el verbo acceder, que, ademas de permitir
comunicarnos con la realidad virtual, nos ayuda a conser-
var un uso correct, amable y modern de nuestro lengua
materna. Por eso cuando navegue en Internet para enviar
un mensaje a sus semejantes, acceda normalmente al correo
electr6nico y evite la palabra accesar, no vaya a ser que esta,
con su sonido de tijera, le corte la comunicaci6n.

Semblanza de Gabriela Mistral


Por Leonardo Venta
Cuando la musa Lucila Go-
doy Alcayaga (reemplazando
la divinidad griega de la poe-
sia), con su pequefia citara
de humilde maestra rural en-
tre las manos, descendi6 del
monte Helic6n mitico para-
je que bafia el rio del mismo
nombre y purifica la inc6lume
esplendidez del Parnaso al
Valle de Elqui en la aldea chil-
ena de Viscufia, un 7 de abril
de 1889, el exaltado paisaje
austral americano se cubri6
de mirtos y de rosas para re-
cibirla.
El progenitor de Lucila, don
Juan Jer6nimo Godoy, dado al
vino, las fiestas y las aventu-
ras amorosas (como si hubiese
sido el mismo Dionisos-Baco
de la antigfiedad clasica) era
un professor rural destituido por.
mala conduct. Juan Jer6nimo
abandon a su esposa, Petro-
nila Alcayaga, y a sus dos hijas
- Lucila (la menor) y Emelina
- al tercer afio de matrimonio.
A los 16 afios, Lucila Go-
doy obtuvo su primer puesto
pedag6gico como ayudante en
una escuela primaria. De esa
misma etapa, mientras traba-
jaba en el Liceo de La Serena,
datan sus primeras publica-
ciones versos y prosas que
ya manifiestan esa tristeza
antol6gica que acompafiaria
siempre su obra. En aquel en-
tonces, compuso ademas po-
emas de caracter biblico que
dedicaria mas tarde, reedita-
dos, a notables personalidades
americanas.
El amor no olvid6 enamorar


a Lucila. La codici6 tanto que
la marc para siempre. Narran
sus bi6grafos, que ella se prend6
de un joven empleado de ferro-
carril, Romelio Ureta. Siendo
novios, el, dado a los placeres, la
engaoi con otra, lo que provoc6
una dramutica ruptura. Asi nos
lo refiere la escritora en su po-
ema "Extasis": "Me habl6 con-
vulsamente; / le hable, rotas,
cortadas / de plenitud, tribu-
laci6n y angustia, las confusas
palabras // [,..] Despuis de
esto ilo se i!no queda nada! /
iNada! Ningfin perfume que
no sea / diluido al rodar sobre
mi cara".
Para sellar esta funesta rel-
acion afectiva, la tarde del 25
de noviembre de 1909, Rome-
lio Ureta, con el alucinado
fuego de un arma,, se vacio
las sienes. No se sabe a ciencia
cierta si se suicide por el rechazo
de Lucila, o si influyeron en su
:fatal decision otras caixsas igno-
radas.
Existe una version que
situa a Romelio en un dilema
de honor, erf relaci6n a un
dinero ajeno que 61 prestara a
un mal amigo. Este le traicion6
y Romelio, probablemente, es-
cogi6 el suicidio como via para
salvar su honra. Sin embargo,
segfin los bi6grafos, en las ro-
pas del suicide se hall6 una
tarjeta postal de .Lucila que
conservaba los hfimedos ves-
tigios del aliento de un beso
depositado por el joven poco
antes de morir.
Humedecida de tiemo dolor,
como la postal besada por Rome-
lio, la desgarradora voz poetica,


en Sonetos de la muerte, arrulla
el cuerpo inerte del suicide: "Te
acostare en la tierra soleada
con una / dulcedumbre de
madre para el hijo dormido /
y la tierra ha de hacerse sua-
vidades de cuna / al recibir tu
cuerpo de nifio dolorido".
SLa indecible voz de que-
branto, cuya genialidad poe-
tica sella los oscuros sonetos,
es la que mueve, en 1914,
al jurado de los Juegos Flo-
rales de Santiago de Chile-a
otorgarle a Gabriela Mistral,
quien usa por primera vez este
seud6nimo, el primer premio
del certamen.
Treinta y un aiios mas
tarde, en 1945, la fundacion
sueca Alfred Nobel reconoci6
con su ansiado galard6n por
primer vez a un escritor de
America del Sur en la persona
de Gabriela Mistral.
La poeta chilena, del mismo
modo, es la unica mujer lati-
noamericana que ha obtenido
tan magno reconocimiento
hasta la fecha.

El 10 de enero de 1957, la
Lucila Angely nifia, la Gabriela
musa y mujer, se nos esfum6
dentro de la imperturbable in-
diferencia de Nueva York, a la
edad de 67 afios, victim de
cancer. Nos dej6 sus tristes
poemas de amor (con unas
que otras cuitas nuestras),
sus canciones de cuna que ar-
rullan, sus rondas infantiles
que suefian, asi como el alma
entrafiable de una maestra
campesina, sencilla y honda
como nuestra America.


(viene de la pigina 1)
tobillo lesionado. Todo eso sin
contar que la comercializaci6n
en tomo a 61 es multimillonaria.
David Beckham apenas esta
Ilegando a la MLS yya se estan
viendo los resultados. Creemos
que se demostrard quq los 250
millones de d6lares que cost
su pase, fueron una buena in-
version.

La F6rmula Uno cada vez
mas disputada dentro y
fuera de la pista
Ya hemos hablado de las
denuncias y confrontacio-
nes entire Ferrari y McLaren
y entire Femando Alonso y
Lewis Hamilton. Pero el or-
den de llegada en el pasado
premio de Turquia, enciende
la competencia a niveles de
infarto. Ferrari conquist6 los
dos primeros puestos con el
brasilero Felipe Massa y el
finlandes Kimi Raikkonen,
mientras que McLaren tuvo
que conformarse con el ter-
cero para Alonso y el quinto
para Hamilton. Estas dos es-
cuderias y sus cuatro pilots
van a tener que fajarse duro


en las carreras que faltan
porque obviamente, de seguir
las cosas como van, nada va
a estar decidido hasta el fl-
timo dia.

Poder bucanero
Los bucaneros de Tampa Bay
le ganaron a los Dolphins de
Miami un juego preparatorio
para la pr6xima campafia del
fuitbol professional de EEUU.
Pero lo interesante no fue
el score, 31 a 28 a favor de
Tampa, ni siquiera que los de
Tampa le tumbaron el invicto
a los de Miami, sino el hecho
de que asistieron al estadio
casi 66 mil espectadores, lo
que llama la atenci6n sobre
la capacidad de convocatoria
de los equipos, muy superior"
a la de -sus similares del beis-
bol de grandes ligas.
Y la .pr6xima semana: Da-
vid Concepci6n de la Gran
Maquina Roja y los grandes
campocortos de todos los
tempos.

Conozca mis sobre sus
derechos
Pregunta: Me llamo Luis Garcia y soy originario de Peri.
Tengo mas de diez afios viviendo en los EE.UU. Toda mis fa-
milia esta legal en el pais except uno de mis hermanos que
tiene seis anos indocumentado en este pais. Su esposa y sus
tres hijos menores de quince aios tambien son indocumen-
tados. Desde que lleg6 mi hermano a este pais, como yo soy
ciudadano americano le someti una petici6n familiar para el
y su familiar. Esta petici6n fue aprobada pero necesita seguir
esperando de cinco a seis ainos para que pueda solicitar la
Residencia Permanente. Con todo lo que se oye en las noticias
acerca de personas a quienes Inmigraci6n les ha ido a buscar
a sus casas para depbrtarlos, mi hermano, igual que yo, no
tiene idea cuales son los derechos que tiene en caso de que
Inmigraci6n le llegue a tocar la puerta. Nos podria informar
que podriamos hacer en caso que se nos presentara la situaci6n
y inmigraci6n tdcara nuestra puerta?.

Respuesta: Sefior Garcia una de las cosas principles en
caso de que Inmigraci6n toque su puerta es que usted tiene
derecho a preguntarle por una autorizaci6n de un juez para
entrar a su casa. Usted no tiene que contestar ninguna pre-
gunta y tampoco mienta en lo que le diga al official, solo digale
que usted necesita hablar con una abogado. Tampoco firme
ningfn document auque los oficiales traten de intimidarleo y
no se deje engafiar. Tampoco tiene que dar informaci6n de su
status migratorio al official por que esto le ayudaria al gobi-
erno a agilizar su deportaci6n. Otra de las cosas importantes
que debe saber es que debe escribir el nombre del official que
lo esta arrestando, su agencia y el numero de la placa. Esta
informaci6n la puede encontrar en uniform del official. No se
declare culpable sin antes haber hablado con un abogado de
inmigraci6n. Asegfrese de que su familiar tiene su numero
de Inmigraci6n. Este nfumero comienza con la letra A con un
nulmero de ocho digitos.
Recuerde si esta enfrentando deportaci6n, debe contratar
un abogado especialista en deportaci6n. No se deje enganar
por personas que s6lo quieren su dinero. Siempre mantenga
con usted el nombre complete de su abogado y toda su in-
formaci6n del contrato. Tambien pida un contrato escrito del
abogado antes de darle dinero. Asegirese que su familiar reciba
una copia de todos los documents que su abogado tiene con
relaci6n a su caso.

Caudillos Latinos a Extradici6n


Por Arturo R. Rivera
Recientemente se esta ven-
tilando en los tribunales la
extradici6n de dos caudillos
latinoamericanos, que duran-
te las d6cadas de los ochenta
y noventa, respectivamente,
impusieron en sus paises go-
biernos autoritarios.
En primer termino se en-
cuentra, Manuel Noriega,


lider autoritario que convirti6
a Panama en un centro de
corrupci6n, lavado de dinero
y trdfico de drogas. Este cau-
dillo trat6 de enfrentar al
gobierno de Estados Unidos
con la bravuconeria propia de
los demagogos, causando una
invasion americana, donde,
como siempre, murieron per-
sonas inocentes.

Pagiha 8/LA GACETA/Viernes, 31 de agosto de 2007


Noriega, de 72 afios de
edad, es el mismo que durante
los pasados 15 afios ha estado
tras las rejas por los cargos de
narcotrafico y negocios mafio-
sos. Se espera que para el 9
de septiembre del corriente, 61
sea puesto en libertad de una
prisi6n estadounidense.
Un tercero en dispute
Sin embargo, Francia esta
reclamando la extradici6n de
Noriega por cargos de lavar
millones de d6lares provenien-
tes del narcotrafico en bancos
franceses. Un juez federal de
los Estados Unidos se neg6
recientemente a impedir la
extradici6n del ex dictador


panamefo a Francia, done
enfrenta hasta 10 aflos de
cdrcel por esos cargos.
Los abogados de Noriega
argumentaron que no se le
puede extraditar a Francia,
por tratarse de un prisionero
de guerra. El argument
fue desestimado por el juez
federal William Hoerreler. La
decision serd apelada pr6xi-
mamente.
En segundo t6rmino, se
encuentra Alberto Fujimori,
expresidente peruano, que
estd a la espera de un fallo
de la Corte Suprema de Chile
para decidir si 1l serd puesto
en libertad o si serd extradita-
do para enfrentar cargos de
corrupci6n y violaci6n de los
derechos humans en Perfi.


Barbas en remojo
En estos moments, Fuji-
mori se encuentra bajo arrest
domiciliario en un lujoso con-
dominio a la salida del norte
de Santiago y no estuvo pre-
sente durante los alegatos de la
pasada semana. Su abogado,
Gabriel Zaliasnid, insisti6 en
que las pruebas aportadas en
la acusaci6n peruana contra
el ex president de 69 afios no
son suficientes y no cumplen
con los niveles de certeza
requeridos por la legislaci6n
chilena. El abogado agreg6
ademds que algunos de los
delitos ya han prescrito. A Fu-
jimori se le acusa en Perfi de
10 casos de corrupci6n y de 25
asesinatos en las matanzas de
La Cantuta y Barrios Altos.


V-Me y National Geographic


De acuerdo a su compromise
de levar una nueva perspective
de nuestro mundo, V-me ha
colaborado con National Geo-

que examine, desde un revo-
lucionario punto de vista, la
infraestructura de ocho lugares
ic6nicos alrededor del mundo:
Las Vegas, la Ciudad de Mexico,
Hong Kong, Londres, Paris, San
Paulo, Mumbai y Nueva York.
La series semanal, que debuta
el 6 de septiembre a las 8:00
PM, tiempo del este (5:00 PM
tiempo del Pacifico), utiliza nar-
raci6n dramatica, periodismo
de primer nivel e imagenes


de computadora combinadas
perfectamente con acci6n real,
para levar a los espectadores
mis allA de los monumentos y
hasta la maquinaria que con-
stituye la verdadera maravilla
viviente de cada megaciudad.
Cada episodio de Megaciu-
dades lleva al piblico al fun-
cionamiento interno de estas
urbes y enfatiza sus problems
e innovaciones particulares. El
program subraya proyectos
de construcci6n o infraestruc--
tura especificos como tiraderos
de basura, aeropuertos, rasca-

I1 ritrovamento
della statua della
Madonna della Rocca
II Santuario della Madonna
della Rocca, s'innalza sopra
una collina, detta Rocca 'Ncra-
vaccata, lungo la S.S 118, al
bivio per S. Biagio Platani.
Fu anch'esso fatto costruire,
come molte altre chiese ales-
sandrine, da Donna Elisabetta
Barresi, negli anni succes-
sivi al ritrovamento prodigioso
della statuetta raffigurante
la Vergine col Bambino, con
l'onere di un canone annuo
pari a lire 67,65 del 1937.
Il taumaturgo Simulacro
della Vergine della Rocca, e
una piccola statua, alta appena
cm. 60, compreso il piedistallo
di cm. 60, in marmo pario, rap-
presentante la Vergine Maria,
avvolta in un manto fregiato e
panneggiato, tenente al petto
il suo Figliolo, con lo sguardo
rivolto verso la Madre.
L'origine del Simulacro fa
parte della pifi grande tra-
dizione alessandrina: la storia
del suo ritrovamento avve-
nuto per mezzo di una povera
cieca.
E anche se non esiste nes-
sun document scritto sul
ritrovamento del Simulacro,
indicate nome e cognome dei
protagonisti, giorno, mese ed
anno, lo attesta innanzitutto
la tradizione orale e costante,
di tutto il popolo alessandrino
e dei paesi limitrofi, tradotta
in un document storico per
mezzo delle sacre tele che


adornano le parti interne del
Santuario e del coro della
chiesa Madre.
Lo dimostra anche l'esistenza
del S. Simulacro e del suo San-
tuario, fin da quando avvenne
il prodigioso ritrovamento.
Lo dimostrano, infine, an-
che le annual feste, proces-
sioni etc. celebrate ab im-
memorabili.
II suo ritrovamento avvenne
intorno agli anni 1620-1625
a mezzo di una povera cieca;
ecco come la tradizione ci tra-
manda il fatto.
Una povera donna del popo-
lo, ebbe la disgrazia di rima-
nere vedova, poco dopo il ma-
trimonio, e per colmo della sua
sventura, la figlia che le nacque
fu completamente cieca.
La povera donna, fedele in
Dio, sopportava con dignity e
amarezza le privazioni di quella
dura vita, cristiana fermezza.
Era gia trascorso tanto tem-
po, la povera donna era gia
vecchia e la figlia, cieca, aveva
raggiunto il suo complete svi-
luppo, quando, una mattina di
primavera, la madre, stimolata
dal bel tempo, e dalla necessity
di raccogliere verdura, per rica-
varne qualche spicciolo, e per
mangiarla, port con se la figli-
ola, sia per non lasciarla sola
a casa, che per farle godere il
beneficio dell'aria campestre.
Giunti nella zona, detta
Rocca 'Ncravaccata, la madre,
per poter liberamente aggirarsi
in quel luogo per poter racco-
gliere la verdura, fece sedere la


figlia e le raccomand6 di non
muoversi finch essa non fosse
tornata.
E mentre la madre si ap-
prestava'a raccogliere le erbe,
alla figliola era apparso un
angelo, dicendo che sarebbe
venuta la Vergine col suoDivin
Figliolo per destinarla a cose
grandi.Cosi le apparve la
Vergine e le disse: Va in paese
e di ai sacerdoti e al popolo
che vengano in questo luogo e
scavino in questa caverna:
troveranno un mio simula-
cro, erigeranno un mio San-
tuario, dove sara conservato
e venerato.La povera cieca,
stupita, disse: Ma come po-
tranno credermi i sacerdoti
ed il popolo, sono una povera
cieca?. Non aveva terminate
di parlare ed ecco che riac-
quistata immediatamente la
vista va incontro alla madre
e ambedue si avviano verso il
paese. In poco tempo clero e
popolo, radunatosi, si avvia in
procession verso quella zona.
Scavano cosi nella caverna in-
dicata e, per la fretta urtano,
con uno strumento di lavoro,
un piccone forse, control il
simulacro,' spezzando il brac-
cio della S. Vergine all'altezza
del polso ed il braccio sinistro
del Bambino all'altezza del
gomito.
Della corona del Bambino
non si sa nulla, quella della
Vergine, per.dono del Signor
Eraclide Giglio, che l'ebbe dai
suoi avi, e custodita, dal 1937,
al Santuario.


Non erano ancora iniziati
i lavori per la costruzione del
Santuario e il barone, avendo
saputo del ritrovamento, riven-
dicava il Simulacro, perched
il ritrovamento era avvenuto
nella sua propriety.

dove rimase fino al 1873, ed
al suo posto mand6 una co-
pia.Le passate generazioni,
nel tramandarci la storia del
ritrovamento, hanno dato il
nome di Angelina alla povera
cieca-nata, e quello di Rosa
Innominati alla madre.
Rocco Pirri, nella sua Sicilia
Sacra ci parla della V. della
Rocca:
...In Alessandria si venera
un'immagine della S. Vergine,
prodigiosamente trovata, tau-
maturga per miracoli e ricca
di molte elemosine oltre alle
annue onze 28. Custodiscono
il Simulacro uomini religiosi
dell'Ordine di Sant'Antonio
Abate.
Nel 1636 era gia tale e tanta
la fame di questo Simulacro,
che il Vescovo agrigentino,
Mons. Trama Francesco, con-
cesse ai religiosi di S. Antonio
Abate, una bolla di erezione di
un convento e chiesa, sotto il
titolo S. Maria La Rocca e nel
1637 il Sommo Pontefice Urbano

Cigar Factory's Future and Other Current


Developments Stir Controversy in Ybor


The architectural rendition of what the Oliva Cigar Factory will look like
when it's converted into a hotel. On the far right is a 45-foot high car carou-
sel. This design must still be approved by the Barrio Latino Commission.


The Barrio Latino Commis-
sion has been busy ensuring
that both future and current
developments fit into Ybor
City's historic guidelines.
The issue receiving the most
publicity over the past few
weeks has been the Oliva Cigar
Factory's future use as a hotel.
Ybor City realtor Steve Ytur-
riaga is part of a development
group that has purchased the
30,000-square-foot historic
wooden cigar factory on Palm
Avenue and 18th Street with
plans to convert it into a three-
story, 59-room hotel complete
with a lobby, outdoor cigar bar
and patio, 15 paved parking
spaces and a 24-car 45-foot
tall robotic carousel parking
garage that acts as a "vend-
ing machine for cars." It's the
parking carousel that aroused
the most controversy at the
recent BLC meeting on Tues-
day, August 21. The carousel
will be located a few feet from
the museum's casitas on Palm
Avenue used for office space,
as well as the museum's park
wall. The carousel will have
by two walls that match, the
exterior of the cigar factory.
The carousel's machinery will
be exposed in the two sides not
covered by walls. It is not so
much the look of the carousel
that concerns its opponents,
though, but the noise.
Local attorney, historic pres-


ervationist and Ybor City State
Museum Society President
Dale Swope fears the parking
carousel could ruin the muse-
um's "tranquil park," which is
located directly at 1818 Ninth
Ave. next to the Oliva Cigar
Factory. The carousel will be
controlled by hydraulic ma-
chinery, which Swope fears will
be too loud and disturb events
such as weddings and awards
ceremonies held at the park.
While some hydraulic ma-
chines can emit loud noises
due to vibrations, these are
generally the lower end hy-
draulic machines. If well-made
hydraulic machinery is used
in the carousel; noise may not
be an issue. William Dobson
of RBK Architects, which is
designing the hotel, said it is
too soon to tell if the hydraulic
machinery the carousel will be
using will emit loud noises.
The BLC has also approved
of variances waiving the nor-
mally required three-feet buffer
between Ybor City properties,
lowering it to just six inches,
and waiving the required num-
ber of parking spaces by 40
percent. Without these vari-
ances, the parking carousel
could not have been built on
the property. Both variances
were approved by the BLC be-
cause the hotel plans met the
BLC's hardship criteria.
Hardship criteria number


three reads, "The variance, if
granted, will not substantially
interfere with or injure the
rights of others whose property
would be affected by allowance
of the variance."
Despite the future hotel's
neighbor, the museum, claim-
ing the carousel will interfere
with their property, the BLC
approved the variance. The
BLC cannot regulate noise.
Whether or not the hydraulic
machinery the parking car-
ousel uses is silent or loud is
not the BLC's concern. Ensur-
ing that the carousel and the
overall look of the exterior of
thb hotel fits into Ybor City's
historic guidelines is the BLC's
concern, and the BLC and oth-
er city officials had some con-
cerns. The look of the carousel
may be too modern. The shade
of the hotel's exterior walls
may not be approved. Another
hearing will be on Tuesday,
September 4 at 9 a.m. in City
Council Chambers, located on
the third floor of Old City Hall,
316 E. Kennedy Blvd., at which
time the BLC will decide if they
will approve the hotel designs
or ask for changes.
"This is not a small bed and
breakfast," said a distraught
Swope, who, before the hotel
developers purchased the cigar
factory, hoped the museum
would purchase it. "This is a
major hotel being crammed

We are excited about the resto-
ration of the Oliva Cigar Factory
and its transformation into a hotel
in Ybor's historic district. But, we
have concerns with the project.
The developer wants approval
for a 45-foot robotic carousel for
parking cars. The machine would
basically stack cars on top of one
another. Our concern is that the
45-foot car tower is at the maxi-
mum height allowed in Ybor City
and it would tower over the his-
toric casitas of the Ybor-Museum
and the museum's garden. The
noise from the tower and its look
could hurt the museum's ability
to rent its garden for events such
as weddings.'Our writer's calls
to the developer to ask about the
noise from the carousel will use
were unanswered. The Ybor City
State Museum Society has voiced
its concerns to the Barrio Latino
Commission but so fai the BLC
has remained unmoved.
We urge caution on approving a
car carousel in the district.These
tall and potentially noisy towers
could dot Ybor City if the BLC sets
a precedent and allows its use in
the historic district.

Tap, tap tap, tap, tap that's
the sound of a U.S. senator's ca-
reer crashing down. It's also the
sound made by U.S. Senator Larry
Craig's (R-ID) foot as he signaled
to the man in the restroom stall
next to him that he wanted a
little frisky fun in the men's room
before he boarded a plane. Craig
is just the latest in a long string of
elected Republicans whose homo-
sexual lifestyle has been exposed
in run-ins with the law. Like all
the others, Senator Craig said it
was all a mistake; he didn't mean
anything by peeking at a man in
a bathroom stall and by touching
the man's foot under the stall's
partition or by reaching his hand
into the stall in an effort to make
contact.
Senator Craig puts the "ho" in
Idaho.

Hunter Gambrell, a Plant City
High School teacher and East
County resident, has made an
official complaint to the Florida
Commission on Ethics, asking
for School Board member Jenni-
fer Faliero to be replaced by the
governor since she has violated
the law by moving outside of her
district to Davis Islands. State
statute reads that a seat will be
considered vacant if an elected
official no longer lives in the dis-
trict. The St. Petersburg Times
discovered Faliero's secret. At first
she lied, denying that she moved
out of the district. Now she has


admitted it and apologized, but
not yet rectified the situation.
Mr. Gambrell ran against
Faliero in 2006. During the cam-
paign Ms. Faliero accused Mr.
Gambrell of not living in the dis-
trict. Her accusations were false
but an accurate prediction of her
current situation.

Last week we wrote that Coun-
ty Commissioner Brian Blair tried
to unfairly control the order of the
public speakers on the wetlands
issue, adding that he skipped call-
ing on certain speakers in favor of
calling on others further down the
list. As much as we hate to admit
it, our perception was wrong.
Commissioner Blair was handed
several sign-in sheets by staff that
were not numbered. He could not
tell who had signed up first. He
called up the first name on each
sheet and so on. This created the
perception that he was skipping
people who signed in.
We accurately reported that
there were sign-in sheets for those
in favor of retaining the wetlands
division,, eliminating the division,
and for those who were neutral.
Blair says he did not ask for those
segregated sheets and that staff
did-it. If so, the staff made an error
we hope they don't repeat.
Based on what we knew last
week, we called Blair- unprofes-
sional and petty. Faced with this
new information, we must retract
our words and apologize.

We attended the 98th birthday
celebration of Jonas Sirotowitz
on Wednesday. We can only hope
to be as spry, energetic and sharp
at 68 years as Jonas is at 98. We
are tempted to follow him and see
where he has hidden the fountain
of youth. Happy 98th Jonas.

Top Florida Democrats were
first to step up and support How-
ard Dean in his effort to become
chair of the Democratic National
Committee in 2005. Dean even
admits that Florida was key in his
rise to power as chairman. Where
is Dean now? He is using his posi-
tion against the people who put
him in power by disenfranchising
Florida voters. Democrats couldn't
be more disappointed in Howard
Dean. It wouldn't surprise us if
Dean's image was burned in effigy
by groups of Florida Democrats to
protest his despicable actions.

Florida will play a major role
in selecting the Democratic presi-
dential nominee even if the Demo-
cratic National Committee (DNC)
continues to refuse to allow Flor-
ida Democratic delegates to par-
ticipate in the convention. Florida
Democrats will vote on January
29 for their preference among the
presidential candidates. Florida's
vote will affect other state prima-
ries that follow. If Hillary wins
Florida, she will look unbeatable
and her support in other states
will grow. If Obama takes Florida,

School Board member Jennifer
Faliero scored the elusive hat
trick last Friday, or was it that
her trifecta paid off? Ms. Faliero
accomplished what few politicians
have. She was the target of three
negative articles on three differ-
ent subjects in three separate
newspapers.
The Tampa Tribune printed an
article about Ms. Faliero creat-
ing hysteria in the community by
falsely reporting crimes on the
internet and accusing the Tampa
Police Department of lying.
The St. Petersburg Times re-
ported that Ms. Faliero no longer
lives in her School Board district,
is in violation of state law, and is
in danger of losing her seat. The
article also stated that she ini-\
tially lied to the Times.
Last Friday in this column we
wrote about her silly comments in
her written evaluation ofMaryE1l
len Elia and her almost perfect
scoring of her.
Ms. Faliero must have enjoyed
all of her press because this week
she earned more copy by telling
a fellow board member that she
should resign.
All of this craziness leads us to
elect Faliero as the politician most
likely to don a diaper and drive
across county wielding pepper
spray, vis-a-vis former astronaut
Lisa Nowak.

While many Hispanic groups
cheered Alberto Gonzalez' ap-
pointment to attorney general,
La Gaceta was less than thrilled.
It was a milestone that the glass
ceiling was broken with a Hispan-
ic achieving the highest post in the
Justice Department, but it was.
apparent from the very beginning
that no matter what Gonzalez'
ethnic background, he was first
and foremost a shill for President
Bush. His time is now over and
his reign has been a black mark
on Hispanics in public service.
Lucky for us that there are many
more Hispanics in government
whose service to this country and
its constitution are exemplary.

There is a movement by labor
and civic leaders to have local
governments like the school sys-
tem pass a responsible employee
ordinance. The ordinance would
set minimum requirements for
all contractors and subcontrac-
tors bidding for taxpayer-funded
projects over $100,000. The.busi-
nesses would be required to pro-
vide health insurance, retirement
benefits and appropriate workers
compensation insurance for all
employees. The business must be
affiliated with a state-registered
apprenticeship program and carry
proper OSHA, safety and weld-
ing certifications, and make that
documentation available to all
inspectors. And, most importantly,
these businesses would have to
classify workers as employees, not
as independent contractors.
Millions of dollars currently
flow from public coffers into pock-
ets of shoddy businesseswhose
employment practices violate
laws. Workers are often unquali-
fied and under-trained for the
trade they are practicing, creating
poor workmanship. Job sites are
unsafe. Local communities are
subsidizing hospitalization for the
uninsured construction workers.
Construction companies that
treat their workers poorly have an
unfair advantage over responsible
employers in the current low bid
system governments use. Public
money should go to responsible
corporate citizens and this ordi-
nance is a step in the right direction.

will hold its 20th Annual Gala to
honor its 2007 Hispanic Man and
Woman of the Year, Dr. Ferdie
Pacheco and Maria Teresa Orisini

Organized Labor the Political


Opponent Karl Rove Feared Most


By Victor Kamber
Pennsylvania is a blue state
that divisive GOP campaigns of
God, guns and gays occasion-
ally turn red. When Al Gore ran
for President against George W.
Bush in 2000, Pennsylvania
was pivotal. Labor operatives
in the Keystone State assured
their members: "Al Gore won't
take away your guns, but
George Bush will take away
your unions."
Gore won Pennsylvania but,
as we all now know, the Su-
preme Court gave the election
to George Bush, who has done
everything in his power to do to
working people just what Labor
in Pennsylvania said he would:
take away their unions.
In recent weeks, national
attention has been focused
on the firing of eight U.S. At-
torneys who weren't "Bushie"
enough. But long before the
politicizing of the Justice De-
partment, White House politi-
cal strategist Karl Rove set his
sights on the real threat to a
GOP "permanent majority"--
organized labor.
From the day the Bush
Administration took office, gov-
ernment agencies created to
help working people have been
under attack. It began with the
appointment of Elaine Chao


as Labor Secretary, something
akin to naming Typhoid Mary
to the Board of Health. A
department created "to fos-
ter, promote and develop the
welfare of the wage earners
of the United States" became
a haven for unfair employ-
ers. Chao's first move was to
deprive six million workers of
the right to overtime pay (she
even advised employers how
to exploit the new rules). Next,
her department slashed funds
and staff for workplace safety
and repealed regulations to
protect workers from repetitive
motion injuries. The depart-
ment continues to strongly
oppose any increase in the
minimum wage.
But it wasn't enough just to
keep workers down. Even more
important to Bush and Rove
was the need to stifle union
organizing. That. was accom-
plished by Bush appointees to
the National Labor Relations
Board who have manipulated
the rules so that the NLRB
has become a tool to penalize
rather than protect workers
seeking union membership.
When Democrats sponsored
legislation to allow workers to
skip the NLRB and organize
by "card check", who was it
in the Senate who stopped it
in its tracks? Elaine Chao's

husband, GOP minority leader
Mitch McConnell.
Why are Bush, Rove and
the GOP Congress so willing
to pull out all stops to deny
unions the right to organize?
Because unions have what
the GOP can't buy: committed
grassroots political activists
who leaflet, phone bank, and
Educate their members better
than any other organization
in America. It helps explain
why union households vote in
record numbers.
It had to send a shiver
through Republican ranks
when AFL-CIO President John
Sweeney promised Democratic
Presidential candidates at a
Chicago debate last month that
2008 "will be our biggest elec-
tion effort ever." (Just a week
later, Rove announced he was
retiring.)
Fox News and other right-
wing political pundits try to
have it both ways: they be-
little organized labor as weak
and passe, and then they
rail against the threat of "Big
Labor". What "threat" does
Labor pose? What they ask of
candidates they endorse is that
they fight for universal health
care, affordable housing, safer
workplaces, lower college tu-
itions and other issues that
ordinary people care about. By
contrast, GOP candidates have
some heavy-lifting to do on
the campaign trail, justifying
to voters the priorities of their
corporate backers.
The grassroots election fer-
vor created by organized la-
bor--all those enthusiastic,
placard-waving union mem-
bers, a sea of brightly colored
T-shirts-drives Rove crazy.
Somehow he never can muster
shouting hordes of manufac-
turers or Jaycees at his ral-
lies where attendance is pre-
screened. Bankers and realtors
and corporate executives aren't
much for leafleting or phone
banking either, and you can't
expect those Jags and stretch
limos to car pool voters to the
polls on Election Day.
After nearly seven years
of taking the best shots the
Bush administration can give
them, resilient and resource-
ful unions and their members
are upbeat and optimistic this
Labor Day. Rove is packing up
and leaving town, but workers
have their rally caps on and
can hardly wait for 2008.


THE STORYTELLER
by Andrea Brunais


Two Vital Decisions for

the County Commission


If like most citizens you
tune out when it comes to lo-
cal government, please make
an exception for two urgent
budget issues. The survival
of two assets the Education
Channel and the Invasive
Species Task Force is at
stake. If enough people show
they care, commissioners are
likely to do the right thing.
First, the Education Chan-
nel. Executive Director Ann
Goldenberg writes:
"I am very disheartened
to bring you the news that
the Board of County Com-
missioners voted to CUT ALL
FUNDING TO THE EDUCA-
TION CHANNEL. Current
public perception is that we
'have been saved by the offer
by Government Access HTV22
to produce and air our signa-
ture programs School Board
meetings, Homework Hotline
and Superintendent's Forum.
Nothing could be further
from the truth. Without the
county's financial contribu-
tion this budget cycle, TECC
cannot fulfill its production
contracts and will, therefore,
lose even more of its funding
and its ability to generate
current and future income."
Goldenberg and other
highly competent staff mem-
bers such as Lucy Griggs,
who directs programming,
deserve your support.
As you may know, Tampa's
access channels include three
categories:
government channels
operated by the city and the
county
the public-access chan-
nel that is run by Speak Up
(a creature of the highly cor-
porate Creative Loafing)
the celebrated, nationally
lauded Education Channel.
Of the three, the Education
Channel is the last one that
should be cut.
The public-access channel
is the weakest link. Poorly
managed by its executive
director and overseen by a
board of:lightweights, the
access channel has largely
become a platform for self-


promotion by Speak Up staff
members and assorted com-
munity exhibitionists. The
Education Channel easily
assumed the vital mission
of providing training and a
medium to the public.
As for the government
channels, they perform ad-
equately, sometimes well.
However, they lack the Edu-
cation Channel's history of
excellence and innovation.
Of all the channels, one is
most likely to find enlighten-
ing material on the Education
Channel, whether you watch
a foreign film or programs
dedicated to the arts, nature
-or education.
The Education Channel
is uniquely constructed as
a nonprofit enjoying board
oversight carried out by re-
sponsible members such as
USF and MOSI. Amazingly,
Tampa's Education Channel
has won the highest national
award' for its genre, Overall
Excellence in Educational
Programming, for the last
four years in a row.
Equally deserving of sup-
port rather than destruction,
the Invasive Species Task
Force is also on the chopping
block. We all know that inva-
sive species of plants crowd
out the native flora of Florida.
This leafy carnage occurs at
a distressing rate. You have
probably seen how Brazilian
peppers and melaleuca trees
swallow up riverbanks and
fields, crowding out man-
groves and other important
natives.
Again, the county commis-
sion's logic is mystifying. Why
cut a department that brings
in six-figure grants and also
engenders great popularity
measured in the thousands
of citizens who donate vol-
unteer work, equipment and
vehicles? What other function
of government enjoys such
massive public support?
Hillsborough County's
more than 80,000 acres of
public land deserve at least
the minimal protections the
Task Force provides. (The
Task Force also educates the
public about pest plants. See
http://www.tbep.org/pdfs/
Invasive_Plants.pdf)
What can you do? Show
up to the budget hearing on
Wednesday, September 5 at
6 p.m. on second floor of the
County Center in downtown
Tampa. There is still time
and opportunity to make
your voice heard. Tradition-
ally, commissioners respond
to two stimuli: money from
campaign contributors and
citizens who show up en
masse.
Final decisions may be
made on September 20 at
the last public hearing. You
can also speak that evening
beginning at 6 p.m. The later
in the process, though, the
more likely the politicians'
positions will have been fixed.
So plan to show up on Sep-
tember 5 if at all possible.
Don't give in to the temp-
tation to think that one voice
doesn't matter. Goldenberg
and Griggs of the Education
Channel believe your voice
matters, and so does everyone
who has shown such strong
support for the environment
during the recent wetlands
debacle. All will be grateful
for your presence.

Thanks to Captain Ray
Markham for his contributions
to this column.
BE A GOOD SPORT!


According to Captain Ray
Markham, summer fishing is
hot, both in terms of tempera-
ture and quality fishing.
"We've been catching good
numbers of redfish around Ter-
ra Ceia,"-said the well known
guide and west coast expert.
"They're just beginning to
school, but the best time for
reds is yet to come, prob-
ably within the next couple of
months."
Capt. Markham recently
decided to join fellow guide,
Capt. William Toney, for a
fishing trip in the Homosassa
River where Toney is a well
known guide. Toney explained
that the peak fishing for reds
in his area takes place about
a month earlier than ours. For
that reason Markham decided
to join his colleague for a day
of fun on the water.
Captain Markham related:
"I met up with William at the
Homosassa Riverside Resort,
a well-known local hot spot for
fun and fishing. Being right on
the river, the resort has some
awesome accommodations at
a perfect location." The duo
departed the Homosassa River
at noon and ran south. Their
first stop allowed for a snorkel-
ing session to look for scallops.
In little less than an hour, the,
team was back in the boat with
a limit of the tasty bivalves. Af-
ter we got back in the boat they
went on ice, which, in a short
time, caused them to partially

open, making the next task a
lot easier.
Next on the agenda were
several stops to look for grou-
per in the shallow waters south
of Crystal River. "We only
scored one small gag, but we
also caught several trout and
some mangrove snapper on
CAL Shad tail jigs." Then the
fishers decided to run south
to some flats .off the Chassa-
howitzka River where the tide
was "getting right", according
to Toney. "It wasn't long be-
fore we were both hooked up
using our DOA CAL Jigs with
Shad tails," related Markham.
"In all, we hooked, landed, and
released five or six nice reds in


the 32-to 33-inch range," he
continued.
Markham said the fish
catching continued at a brisk
pace. When the heat became
unbearable the friends went
over the side for a cooling
dip. According to Markham,
scallop season continues to
September 10, and he hopes
to make at least one more trip
to the Homosassa River before
the season ends.
The best way to successfully
fish an unknown area is by
the use of a guide. They will
pamper you, teach you and
show you the hot spots during
a fish catching experience. For
fishing in the Homosassa River


The City of Miami's famed
Orange Bowl was built in 1935
and has been witness to some
of the greatest football games
ever played. It is a stadium of
great history and tradition that
will never be forgotten.
But times change, and the
time has come for the Univer-
sity of Miami football team to
abandon its historic home in
favor of Dolphin Stadium. Why
is this necessary?
Because of comfort and
profitability.
The Orange Bowl is old and
rundown. The stadium is lo-
cated in a not-so-great part of
town. It lacks the luxuries that
the newer Dolphin Stadium
possesses. The driving forces
behind the Orange Bowl's
tradition have been the fans
in the stands and the teams
on the field. These two forces
can successfully transfer to a
new home.
It was officially announced
last week that the Miami Hur-
ricanes will begin playing their
home football games at Dol-
phin Stadium in 2008. UM
signed a 25-year lease with
the stadium and could earn
more than $2 million in extra
revenue by playing there. That
kind of profit is something that
the university wasn't about to
pass up and.shouldn't have.
Dolphin Stadium is cur-
rently going through a $300
million expansion and renova-


tions project. It's already been
a great place to play football
for the Miami Dolphins for
many years now, and it will
now be an even better place for
the Hurricanes to play. It just
wouldn't have made sense for
Miami to continue playing in
an out-of-date stadium when
there's a new and improved
other stadium available.
No doubt there's still a sense
of sadness for many Hurricane
fans about leaving the Orange
Bowl after this season. UM
won three of its five national
championships on this very
field. The Hurricanes also set a
record, which still stands, of 58
consecutive home victories at
the Orange Bowl from 1985 to
1994. Aside from great college
teams, five Super Bowls were
played at the Orange Bowl,
including arguably the most
significant of them all. Super
Bowl III where the underdog
Jets shocked the heavily-fa-
vored Colts.
The stadium will forever
be remembered as a home of
champions, and UM fans plan
to carry that kind of tradition
with them into Dolphin Sta-
dium in '08.

WHAT HAPPENING

Letter to the Editor
Dear Patrick,
Some are blaming a fine judge in the wake of a senseless
murder of a police officer. Even the governor weighed in, won-
dering.if the judge obeyed the law. I wonder if he will be as
quick to apologize when he learns the answer is "Yes."
As the tortured logic goes, one should cast blame upon a
judge for a ruling rendered two months prioi to the murder.
That is, since the judge didn't set an abusively high and un-
lawful bond in a weak case, his decision allowed the presumed
innocent defendant's family and friends to pay the bond, which
allowed a bondsman to post the bond, which allowed the de-
fendant to obtain a handgun, which allowed him two months
to degenerate, which allowed him to commit a murder no one
predicted. Do you follow the string back through his prior
arrests, and to other judges and prosecutors? What about a
motion for pre-trial detention, which could have kept the de-
fendant in jail without bond?
Simply put, no judge and no prosecutor are to blame. None
are clairvoyant. The "What ifs" are endless and fruitless and
only deepen the tragedy. Although some seek easy answers,
sometimes there are none.
Sincerely,
Marcelino J. Huerta, III

Movie: September Dawn
Director: Christopher
Cain
Cast: Jon Voight, Trent
Ford, Tamara Hope, Jon Gries,
Taylor Handley, Shaun John-
ston, Lolita Davidovich, Ter-
ence Stamp
Rated: R (violence)
SRunning time: 110 min.
Like all films that deal with
religion, September Dawn will
catch plenty of controversy
over how it portrays people of
a certain faith. Mormons are
the focus of Christopher Cain's
film about an American trag-
edy that occurred in 1857.
In September of that year,.
a large- group of travelers from
Arkansas were passing through
the Mountain Meadows region
of Utah on their way to settling
in California. The travelers
encounter several members
of the Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-Day Saints who were
settled in Utah. These Mor-
mons were led by Bishop Ja-
cob Samuelson (Jon Voight),
who out of fear and paranoia
- viewed these travelers as
threat. Samuelson tells the
travelers they can remain in
the area for two weeks to rest
and feed their livestock, while
in secret he's plotting with his
religious followers on how to
exterminate the whole group
- men, women, and children.
While this horrific plot by
the Mormons is taking place,
a love story unfolds between


one of the bishop's sons, Jona-
than (Trent Ford), and one of
the travelers, Emily (Tamara
Hope). Jonathan isn't aware of
what his people are planning,
and he doesn't agree with his
.father's narrow religious view-
points.
The film portrays the Mor-
mons as religious extremists
who are intolerable of any-
one not sharing-their own be-
liefs. Brigham Young (Terence
Stamp), the overall leader of the
church, talks of having divine
power from God to rule over all
people. Young says that people
who are not obedient to God
in the way he sees fit should
be killed so their souls will be
saved. It's this type of think-
ing that eventually leads to the
massacre of the travelers.
September Dawn is filled
with over-the-top performanc-
es and has some rather bland
dialogue at times. However,
Cain's film still manages to
stir our emotions strongly. We.
fall in love with the travelers,
who are portrayed as people of
love. We despise the Mormons,
who are portrayed as people of
hate. While we don't know for
sure how accurate this movie
is when it comes to the real
events, the film's message is
very clear: Religious fanati-
cism, regardless of what faith
is involved, is a dangerous and
terrible force that can only lead
to tragedy.

Frank A. Ziomek, president, Stokes Molded Products United Rubber Workers Union Local 114, in attendance of the Seventh An-
nual Conference of the United Rubber Workers of America, September 25 27, 1942 in Akron, Ohio.


By Aline Guzzo
Frank Ziomek was born in Warrior Run, Pa., on Feburary
19, 1910. Ziomek was the second oldest of nine brothers and
sisters. He was 91 when he died.
He retired in 1973 after more than 40 years with Stokes
Molded Products in Trenton. He was president of United Rub-
ber Workers Local 114 more than 40 years. During his years.
of presidency, he.was defeated only once. The gentleman who
defeated him lasted only three months and asked Ziomek to re-
turn as president. He did so only because he was so passionate
about the rights of his workers being protected on the job site.
Even when he lost everything when the plant was sold, he went
back with even more passion, protecting the men and women
in his union. He was on call 24/7 for his union workers. He
never cared about their race, religion of political affiliation. He
was there for the workers.
Before his days as president of his union, he was a coal
miner in the town where he was raised, before moving to New
Jersey. He told us stories about canaries in the coal mines and
how when one died, they knew the air was' no good. He also
thought well of mice and rats, because when the mice and rats
ran so did the workers, their was a cave in coming and these
animals knew.
He became a member of the Notre Dame Catholic High
School PTA at its inception in 1957, and was a member of the
Ewing Live Wires, Incarnation Seniors and Polish Falcons 59.
He enjoyed building doll houses and other toys for his
grandchildren. He was also an avid gardener who was the envy
of his neighbors. Out of six tomato plants, he was able to sup-
ply many people with tomatoes for the summer. Also, after his
wife died, was able to cook and do many household chores he
never did before. He learned to bake cakes so he could bring his
share to his monthly meeting of the Live Wires, a Senior Group
in Ewing New Jersey where he resided.
Ziomek was the son of Michael and Angela Kwiatkowska Zi-
omek, husband of the Mary D. Sowa Ziomek and father of the
Barbara Banyacki, Aline Guzzo and Elaine Molnar and three
sons-in-law. He has five grandchildren Paul, Peter and Nicole
Guzzo (now Nicole Kekesi married to Rich Kekesi) and Michele
Molnar and Alyssa Molnar (now married Alyssa Travis married
to Mike Travis. When Ziomek was asked about the sex of his
fourth grandchild, he said. "What do you think, I had three
girls, three granddaughters, so what do you think?" Was he
surprised when it was a boy and. thrilled beyond words.
One cute story about Frank Ziomek is when he was young,
his parents had a still during prohibition. They made, accord-
ing to Ziomek, the best wine around. One problem was it was
during Prohibition and the government found out about it and
snatched it away.
Ziomek said, "It would have been worth a fortune today."
He shared this type of story with his daughter when they went
blueberry picking. He ate as many blueberries as he picked.


The 2007 Labor Day Celebration

Offers Fun for Everyone


Fun, sun, carnival rides,
good food, beer and wine,
and even a chance to educate
yourself and find a new career.
What else could you ask for
this Labor Day?
The West Central Florida
Federation of Labor and AFL-
CIO Central Labor Council
will hold their 2007 Labor
Day Celebration on Monday,
September 3 from 11 a.m. to
4 p.m. at the Florida State
Fairgrounds. The entire com-
munity is invited to attend and
enjoy great food and fun with
the union family. Attendees
are welcome to show off their


This article was written in
July of 1968 by Jack Espinosa,
who was then assistant direc-
torfor the Neighborhood Service
Centers, a federally-funded
prqgramn administered by Hills-
borough County Division of Wel-
fare under one of this county's
most outstanding government
administrators, Rudy Spoto.
Spoto was the first county ad-
ministrator responsible for the
establishment of this county's
government system still opera-
tional. Espinosa was one of the
assistants in the Hillsborough
County Welfare Department
and the editor of "The Mirror,"
an in-housepublication. He and
fellow-manager, Frank Alonso,
attended a conference in San
Francisco. This piece appeared
in "The Mirror" just one month


union pride by wearing their
union shirts, caps, pins and
emblems, though it is not nec-
essary to do so to attend.
Over 3,000 tickets have al-
ready been sold and between
4,000 and 5,000 people are
expected at the event through-
out the day.
"Every year this is a fantas-
tic event," said Cheryl Schro-
eder, executive director of the
West Central Florida Federa-
tion of Labor. "It's a place you
can take your family, whether
you're in a uriion or not, and.
have a lot of fun. We always
have a great crowd and no one


after the assassination of Rob-
ert Kennedy.
Five days in California had
already made us feel we had
been born there. It was Friday
morning and the metropolis of
San Francisco had awakened
early. The noise of the city
gets to you early in San Fran
because your windows are
always slightly open. This is
how people keep their "cool"
there. No air conditioners can
,be found anywhere in the city.
The temperature is always in
the vicinity of the lower 70s.
The famous cable cars tra-
verse Geary Street on little
tracks that wind up either on
Market Street or Fisherman's
Wharf on the bay, depending
on which way you want to go.

ties we have planned. Everyone
has a good time."
Unlike past events, while
the celebration will feature ac-
tivities under the Florida sun,
this year's will have an indoor
air conditioned area filled with
activities that will allow guests
to escape the heat.
The event will not only be
a Labor Day celebration, but
it will also educate others
about unions and their impor-
tance, past, present and future
through exhibits showcasing

Street half a block from the
cable car.line, making it simple
even for a tourist like me to
get to the convention center.
With 15 cents I would hop on
the cable car to Market Street
and then transfer to a motor
bus, streetcar, or electric bus,
depending on which came first.
In less than 10 minutes I would
be at Brooks Hall, site of the
Forum's nerve center.
I remember commenting
to Frank Alonso how remark-
able it was that San Francisco
was so easy-going and police
in spite of the ferocity of the
big. city life. "Maybe it's the
weather," one stranger told me.
Conversations are started on
any corner between people who
have never seen one another.
(Continued on page 2)


I Ii n S -a n F r a n c i s -c o I









(Continued from page 1).
Why not? San Francisco's
heart is large enough to ac-
commodate any stranger, and
its intellect is broad enough
to tolerate any opinion or ap-
pearance.
It was Frank who told me
that Senator Robert Kennedy
was in town and he was to
ride the cable car from Van
Nessa Street to Market. He
was campaigning hard in the
crucial Democratic Primary in
California.
"I think McCarthy has the
strength in San Francisco," I
remember telling Frank. He
said Kennedy would win Cali-
fornia.


In any case, the prospect of;
riding a cable car with Sena-
tor Kennedy excited us and
we grabbed the next car going
up the steep hill called Nob
Hill. That's where the famous
Mark Hopkins Hotel (Top o'
the Mark) and the Fairfax Ho-
tel are located. From this hill,
San Francisco rolls up.and
down northward to the bay.
Chinatown is nestled below
the Fairfax and five square
miles of the San Francisco
that once burned is just south
of where we stood waiting for
the controversial Senator from
New York.
Frank's wife, Olga, a little
more reserved than we, stood


away from us while we dis-
cussed the grand strategy
that would produce a picture
of each of us shaking the
Senator's hand.
"You take mine first, then I'll
quickly grab the camera and
take yours," I suggested. The
little Kodak was loaded with
film and Alfonso agreed that
this was the best course of ac-
tion. He told me that the crowd
awaiting Kennedy was sur-
prisingly scarce. "If this were
Tampa, there'd be a thousand
people waiting," he said.
"People here are used to
seeing dignitaries this is a
pretty common occurrence for
Frisco," I rationalized.


Before we realized it, the
noise began. People ran up
the hill it was Kennedy. He
was-surrounded by aides and
cameras. I walked up to him,
shook his hand, and wished
him luck. The grand strategy
was abandoned in all the ex-
citement where was Frank?
I spotted him a moment later
shaking Bobby's hand. The
cable car pulled up and sud-
denly I realized that there was
a huge crowd surrounding
us. I struggled and somehow
managed to get on. There were
only three people between the
Senator and myself. He looked
good, although much older
than he appears on television.
I had met him in Tampa back
in 1960. Seven years had
dulled his boyish look. His hair
was the most striking feature
shorter than I expected but
with much more gray than
rust. He looked so much like
President Kennedy. His eyes
were tired, but the famous
smile was humble and sincere.
His face was well-tanned, his
nose peeling.
"Is that a Florida tan Sena-
tor?" I asked, trying to start
some semblance of conversa-
tion in the midst of the tur-
moil.
"Not this one," he an-


swered.
"I'm from Tampa. Is there
any chance of you coming
down to Florida?"
"Yes," he replied amidst the
noise.
By this time, the cable car
was two blocks downhill head-
ing towards Union Square
where huge crowds were await-
ing.
"Jack," "Jack," a familiar
voice came from the mass of
humanity now aboard the
cable car. It was Frank. He had
miraculously boarded the ve-
hicle, camera in hand, but too
far away to take pictures.
"Give me the camera," I
yelled. By now my advanta-
geous perch was being chal-
lenged by a CBS cameraman
whose job it is to take pictures.
I grabbed the tiny Kodak and
snapped several pictures of
Kennedy, who by now had
practically disappeared just
five feet away from me. We
hung on to the side as the
car slowly moved downhill.
I tried to capture the look of
the crowd that pushed up the
street. Thousands must have
touched his hand (he resorted
to slapping his right hand
against those of his admirers."
Shaking a hand from a moving

cable car could have resulted
in his being pulled off. His left
hand clutched tenaciously to
the safety bar. It was holding
on to the top of the car. The
huge camera on the shoulder
of the CBS cameraman finally
found its way out of the cable
car. I gave him my position so
he could capture the magic of
the moment at Union Square. I
grabbed him around the waist
to keep him from falling off.
I remember the old man
particularly who pushed and
shoved his way to the Senator
and grabbed his arm. "Give
'em hell, Bobby!" It was as
though the presence of the
Senator had stunned him and
he spouted out an old familiar
cliche, whether it applied or
not.
By the time the car had
reached Market Street, the
crowds were unbelievable.
San Francisco's international
character was evident. There
were people of every kind
imaginable. There were many
young. Bearded,- long haired,
well-groomed all were yelling,


"Bobby!" "Bobby!" "We want
Bobby!" "Speech!"
Suddenly I realized how
vulnerable a man of so much
controversy was. Flashes of
that fateful November in 1963
crossed my thoughts. Olga had
warned us before boarding the
cable car not to get too close
- "There might be an attempt
on his life, Frank. Stay off the
cable car," she had said.
The thought vanished from
my mind.just as quickly as it
had entered.
Kennedy boarded his bus
while thousands crushed to
get another glimpse. He waved
at a little Chinese girl standing
on the hood of an automobile.
I spotted Frank and Olga lean-
ing against a building.
"He's going to win."
"Maybe not Frank, Mc-
Carthy looks real strong. I
guess Kennedy's strength is in
Southern California," I replied.
"In any case, Humphrey ap-
pears to have the delegates."
We walked up the hill as
the crowd began to disperse.

When Lions Walked Among Us


By Ferdie Pacheco


I'm now almost 80. I'm on
the last pages of my book of
life. I can look back with clar-
ity on who influenced me the
most, who set the example that
helped me build the morals
and standards that furnished
me with a solid unshake-
able foundation. Without that
foundation it is difficult to be
someone worthy.
As I wrote my books on Ybor
City, my perspective on my full
life narrowed down to my real


mentors. I find it strange that
out of 80 years all the men who
stand out were from my early
formative years, and after col-
lege, and for the rest of my 50
years of life not one notable
person emerged.
The following is an extension
of my article from La Gaceta's
85th Anniversary Edition list-
ing those men who have had a
great influence on my life.
PATRICK HENRY


YANCY, S.J.
Father Yancy was a fifty-ish
biology professor of a small
Jesuit School on the shores of
Mobile, Alabama. The school
specialized in Pre-Med, pre-
paring young students for the
ORDEAL that awaited them in
medical school. He was tough.
He believed in education by
fire. He provided the fire.
The curriculum was very
hard. Every semester was
packed with difficult biol-


ogy courses, and less difficult
chemistry and physics courses.
From all over the South came
the most promising science
students. Getting Yancy to ac-
cept a student proved almost
as hard as getting into Med
School. It was a rare privi-
lege. Once you were proven
to be "the goods" and you
were known as one of Yancy's
Boys, you could look forward
to getting admitted to medi-
cal school. This was a major
stumbling block in the pre-war
years of 1945 to 1950.
The students from Florida
were virtually blocked from
getting in. Even if you had the
highest grade and accomplish-
ment in the Biology programs,
here were the requirements.
1. Residency: Med schools
would accept ONLY students
from their States. The prob-



(Continued from page 3)
we can tell our kids that we
talked with Bobby. How many
people can say they rode on a
cable car with the President
of the United States?" Frank
sighed.
"Yeah," I answered, "and we've
got the pictures to prove it."


lem we had in Florida, was
that there were NO Medical
Schools in Florida. We were
SHUT OUT.
2. Religious schools: 2 Cath-
olic med schools existed for us:
Georgetown in Washington, DC
and Saint Louis Med School in
Saint Louis. No "OTHER" reli-
gious med schools existed.
3. Private Schools: 1 Tulane
University in New Orleans
Once you went through
that list and were rejected, you
were finished until next year.
-Your previous rejection then
weighed heavily in your pres-
ent application.
Determined to do well in
Yancy's classes, I pushed my-
self to earn his approval. In
four years, I did so well that
he made me the professor of
Anatomy, Comparative and
Mammalian Labs. I taught the
under class men, It was a high
honor I had earned it. I was
Yancy's # 1 Boy!
Three weeks away from
graduation, Yancy sprung a
nasty surprise. We would have
to pass a comprehensive exam,
encompassing four years of
Biology. And, it would be an
oral exam given by Yancy! He
was a terror; all students were
badly frightened by his rough
treatment.

When Lions Walked AmongUs


(Continued from page 4)
None worse than the vets
of the Big War. Troops who
had survived the Rapido River
Crossing, or assaulted the
Abbey at Casero fainted at
the thought of facing Yancy.
They vomited, they cried, they
couldn't sleep. At the thought
of facing Yancy they became
SHELL SHOCKED. One of
them was a tough Master
Sergeant who had been in
the Murderous Rapids River
Crossing. All he wanted to do
was pass Biology with low C
average, and go on to dental
school. That's all. But now, this
comprehensive loomed large.
He could never pass that. His
memory was still scrambled
from the war. He couldn't re-
member four years of Biology.
Here he was, SHOT DOWN
RIGHT at the finish line. What
to do? WHAT.TO DO?
Father Yancy had gone to
St Louis to give a paper at the
Medical School and wouldn't
be back until Sunday. He left
ME, his trusted right hand
men in charge of his lab, with
all-his lays to HIS own perso-
nas once!

"I'm through: I can't- pass
that exam!" he said.
Well, why not? This was
clearly an injustice. This man
fought for us for four years,
he had wounds in every part
of his body, the man wounds
was in his head. He deserved
our help.
"What if we stole the exam
for you?"
"You could do that for me?'
he brightened up.
"You betcha, you wait here.
We'll be back about 7.We'll
copy the exam, then put it
back, and then you're on your
own". So saying, we, steamed
off determined to break into
Yancy's office and steal the
exam.
Yancy was out, but his
Scorpulent assistant Father
Muhamy came back early from
choir, and surprised us.
That was it for us! Three
weeks before graduation and
we were busted. The Jesuit
.disciplinary board was fierce!
If crucifixion was still in vogue
we would have been nailed to
the cross. Instead we were ex-
pelled. A big red letter was to
mark our sin. We would NEV-
ER be admitted to any Jesuit
School, especially any medical
school. The punishment went
on and on in ridiculous and
excessive manner. They were
highly over arrogant. God,
were they mad! And now, I had
Father Yancy to face. What can
THAT be like? I waited in my
room again.
On Monday I was called to
his office at six o'clock in the
evening. I walked up those
three creaky wooden stairs like
Mary Queen of Scots to her
beheading. I was as low as I
had ever been in my life. I had
betrayed the faith of my men-
tor, Fr. Yancy. He had put his
trust in me and I had betrayed
him. All to help out the poor
Master Sergeant! Who would
accept that lame excuse?
The room was in the semi
gloom. Yancy was seated be-
hind his desk. His head was
bowed, his fingers "tented"
over his nose. He looked up at
me standing there miserably,
trying hard as hell not to cry,
not to crack. I was so ashamed,
so embarrassed. Here was my
God, and I had betrayed him.
What could I say?
Finally, Yancy bound up.
His eyes were red, he had
been crying! He started out as
a whisper.
"This is my fault! I take the
full blame for this. I wanted to
scare all of you to review the
medicine, to prepare you for
this kind of shock, but instead
I scared you into THIS. You, my
best student reacted by trying
to steal the exam?"
I said nothing, my head
dropping further and further.
Now, I REALLY felt bad.
"Ferdcie, THERE IS NO
EXAM. Have you ever heard
from other graduates that
there was an exam? Just have
a student in for tea, and we
talk about where he is going.
There is NO EXAM. Who could
pass a comprehensive exam in
Biology? I doubt if I could!"
My mouth was open. What?
No exam? So we are getting
kicked out for trying to steal
an exam that did NOT even
exist?
"As the years passed by, I
get tough and meaner. I want
you boys, my boys, Yancy's
boys, to each graduate as doc-
tors. NO one flunks out. All of
Yancy's boys graduate! But,
in being so tough some of you
'don't make it past me. THAT is
the crime.

When Lions Walked Among Us


(Continued from page 5)
Well, as usual, he had THAT
right. Many pre med lads
couldn't make it past Yancy's
tough as nails approach. At a
state school, he'd have made
B's, but under Yancy he was
lucky to make a low C, not good
enough for med school. How
many good kids got knocked
off? Too many.
Now, here was I an A student
the number One of Yancy's Boy.
I would NOT graduate after all
the hard work, the extra work, I
would NOT graduate. All of my
med school applications were
now null and void.
A great wave of relief flooded
over me. Yancy wasn't mad: he
was forgiving. It was somehow
HIS fault that I broke into his
office! Yancy straightened up.
He barked again he returned
to his Old Self.
"Forget all the trash the
disciplinary committee said.
It's all gone! You resign from
school due to illness in the fam-
ily. You enroll at the University
of Florida and complete your
work and get a BS in Biology.
Then reapply. Put me down as
your main recommended! I'll
get you in "somewhere".
"Now, about JB, your Dad.
Has anyone told him yet?"
"No, I was waiting for you."
"Good. Do you have a place
to hide-out for a week or so?"
"Yessir, Larry Guines is in
dental school in New Orleans.
I can crash there."
"Good. In seven Days, go
home. Walk in the door as if
nothing has happened. Have a
game plan for tomorrow. Apply
to some school.
"Father, I can get into the
University of Florida Phar-
macy School. With a pharmacy
school I think I'can get into
medical school anywhere."
"Good, Good. DO NOT re-
hash what happened here. My
letter will cool him out. He will
say NOTHING to you. You just
hold your head high, and go
apply to the University of Flori-
da when summer school starts.


And make straight A's there,
make me look good. In time,
Ferdie, one day, you are going
to be a fine doctor. Everybody
trips and falls. It's how you
pick yourself up that counts. I
have faith in you. Go forward
and PROVE ME RIGHT!"
As usual, everything worked
out as Fr. Yancy said. He wrote
my dad a glowing wondrous
letter about me. I wish I had
it to this day. It must have
registered in JB's head, for I
never once got any static on my
STUPID GOOF at Spring Hill.
I went home, packed my
stuff, applied, and got accepted
into pharmacy school at the
University of Florida. It cost
$50 a semester. I said I'd pay
my way. I did. To live, I received
$50 a month at the Sigma Phi
Epsilon. I could make that on
my own. I did. At the end of
three years (a state law require-
ment for a pharmacy require-
ment) I graduated, and passed
the Registry State Board.
At this pint, I fell in love. I
had graduated, I could make
a good living as a pharmacist,
and I got married to a judge's
daughter. I also had to join
the Air Force. I should have
received a direct commission
of 2nd Lieutenant with two
degrees and eight years of
college, but the Korean War
was winding down, and the
best they could do for me was
corporal's stripes. I went in
and immediately applied for
Officer's Candidate School.
No sooner did I graduate,
and put my two bars on my
shoulder, the Korean war was
over! The AF did not need 625
2nd Lieutenants. I would be
sent home as soon as I com-
pleted two years of service. I
needed six months. I did it and
at the end I was discharged.
On the way home I remem-
bered I had applied to admis-
sion to The University of Miami
(the first) Medical School. I'd
never heard from them!
As soon as I got home, I
called the U Miami School of


Medicine. They looked up my
application and said:
"Where have you been? You
were accepted last year. If you
can get here by September 4,
you are in THIS year's class!"
Where had I been? I was
lost? Just in the Air Force, in
OCS. How could I be lost? Of
such things lives are ruined.
But I was there in the lobby,
on September 4, the one guy
in officer's tan gabardine First
Class uniform. Everybody else
was in white ducks, but me. I
was in an Air Force tan uni-
form. The first thing I heard
was a rough voice: "Hey you,
Army there, come up front
and tomorrow lemme see you
in WHITE. I'd met Dr Paff, the
next important man of my
life.
DR. GEORGE PAFF.
ANATOMY PROFESSOR.
UNIV. OF MIAMI
MEDICAL SCHOOL
GEORGE PAFF was a fire-
cracker. A whipper snapper,
a Tom Fooler, a man in love
with laughter. He was also a
world class anatomist. The
best teacher of anatomy in the
world, perhaps, and here he
was breaking in a new Anat-
omy Department in a brand
new university with scant
funds. Just the challenge he
loved. As he arrived in his 60s
he had financial security and
professional stature. What he
needed was a challenge. He
needed fresh faces and a run
down facility to challenge him.
New doctors found the new
anatomy facility was in the
stables of the horse farm of
the luxurious Biltmore Hotel
of Coral Gables. One of the
Gables Hotels of that era. Now,
it housed the VA Hospital,
overflowing with the detritus
of WII. Off to the side were the
horse stables. Someone with
a sense of humor gave us that
for anew school of medicine.
It was a shambling wreck, but
it had the best faculty in the

When Lions Walked Among Us


(Continued from page 6)
country, and the stars of the
faculty were doubtless, Geo
Paff, the anatomist with a flair
for teaching.
I had driven all night
through the hot, humid swamp
highway, looking through sleep
laden eyes, watching out for
alligators, trying not to run
off the narrow road into the
canal, and had barely made
it to opening class. I did have
the presence of mind to put
on the most elegant clothes I
had that resembled the duck
whites I was supposed to wear.
The closest I came was my Air
Force officer's gabardine tan
uniform. I tried to hide in the
back of the 80 students, but
Paff had an eagle eye, and he
enjoyed picking on new stu-
dents. You can't hide a tan
shirt in a sea of 80 spic and
span white shirts.
"You, Army. You gotta make
up your mind kiddo. Which is
it to be, medical student or Air
Force Officer?" Before I could
answer he made me waddle
through the 80 students and
grabbed a wad of my shirt and
dragged me to the lecture. I
was embarrassed as hell. First
day and already I'm in front of
the class. I was getting mad,
but I saw the old man laughing
winking at me.
"Well?" He poked me in the
chest with a naked rib bone.
"Medical student; sir. I wait-
ed a helluva long time to be
here, Sir. I'm not going to waste
this time"
"Damned straight, Army.
You said that good. Go sit
down. I'll promise you this,
Army. You give me a year of
your heart, bone and soul,
and I'll guarantee if you pass
Paffs class, you got a helluva


chance- to make a fine doctor.
That's what I want, that's what
you want. So learn to put up
with my craziness, and if we
work together, I guarantee you;
you'll start your studies on the
right foot".
He almost got a standing
ovation. He sought me out, as
the students moved to their
cars "You look tired, son. If
you need a rest before you go
in setting up your apartment,
I gotta nice cot in my office. Go
on up and sack out. And if you
haven't got time to find whites,
I got 12 white lab coats up
there, have one and welcome!'
He patted me paternally,
smiled, winked and was gone.
Boy, I thought, so THAT is
the eccentric crazy Dr. Paff.
He is a trip. But that was
his method. Drop you with a
laugh. Pick you up with kind-
ness and a good word, and in
the end, I felt, I knew he was on
my side. I loved the guy.
His classes were easily the
best three hours daily lectures
of my entire 12 year academic
life. It wasn't for the meek.
You better know your stuff,
and have a high tolerance for
ridicule. When 80 men under-
stand that it is all in fun, no
insult intended, everything
intended to pound home a
point then the classes became
fun, and you learned Paff's
Anatomy.
We were studying the bra-
chial plexus a thick trunk
of nerves that ran perilously
through the bones of the shoul-
der. He asked a kid he called
Beach Boy because his parents
owned a hotel on the beach.
"Here Beach boy give me
your index finger" he took
it and placed it through the
shoulder bones.


"Now, Beach Boy, how many
times have you seen a mother
pick up her 2-year-old baby
by her.arm to get him over a
curb?"
"Lots"


Now Paff took the bones of
the lower arm and picked up
the baby. The bones snapped
shut on the Beach Boy's finger.
Ouch! That hurt like hell. His
finger was in a bone vise.


"That is what can happen to
your child"
Paff put his arm around
Beach Boy a shoulder.
"You think you will ever

forget this lesson, Son? Hell
no, you won't. This is LIVING
Anatomy; you will carry this
lesson for the rest of your life"
I found out early that the
secret to Paff was to study like
hell all night before his calls.
Once he kept getting the right
answers and the right attitude
from you, he never picked on
you again. Guys that were
dragging and always had the
wrong answers, he pounded
on.
A kid who had no knack
at all for dissection he named
"Slasher" and so he remained
until graduation. I was a very
good dissector having been
an Anatomy Professor un-
der Yancy, so he asked me
to help Slasher so he didn't
butcher the cadaver, and I
did, and Slasher somehow got
through Anatomy. He is today
an eminent Internist. But that
was Paff's way. He recognized
weaknesses, he understood
that there were many different
ways to study medicine, and he
just channeled each person to
go where he was best. What
a great talent that is. Slasher
was never going to make a
surgeon. Paff knew that.
After a while, when I became
a Paff pet, and was more secure
as an A student, I fell into my
old habit of taking absurd
statements of the professor
and making a cartoon about
it and posting it in the lunch
room bulleten board. In Paff's
case, there were never less


than 6 gags of funny things
he did. Paff absolutely loved
it! At one dinner at his house,
his wife took me aside and
informed me that he was col-
lecting all my cartoons, and at
the end of the year was going to
publish them in a book which
he was going to call "Anatomy
by Paff as seen through the
Naked Eye"
He never did, I'm sorry to
say. I'd like to see them now.
Paff was initially kind of
peeved with me. He couldn't
figure out how I kept such neat
meticulous notes and yet had
time for six cartoons. He never
caught me, and he said I kept
the finest notes he'd ever seen.
That was my secret.
Paff religiously stuck to
the text book. I outlined the
textbook the night before. I
was ahead of him. That was
my secret.
The other game I played on
him was the exams. The cadav-
ers had question tags on the
parts that needed identifica-
tion for the exams. The ques-
tions had to do with arteries
(red) veins (blue) nerves (yel-
low). And I drew my exam pa-
per in three colors. That drove
Paff nuts. Next exam he walked
behind me watching me whiz
over the paper in three colors.
"I thought you stole the exam."
he said to me surprisingly.
From time to time I would
sabotage one of his "demon-
strations".
When we came to the eye,
he liked to demonstrate the

bounced like a ping pong ball.
Then, for the capper, he would
take an average size guy, say
1401bs, and say "Hey, step on
it, walk on it...." and he would
walk on it and nothing would
happen! The eyeball was so
strong that it could withstand
all that pressure! It was amaz-
ing.
I was always way ahead of
everyone else so I knew he'd
ask for my eyeballs. I took the
thinnest hypodermic needle
I could find and pierced the
eyeball in many places. It was
so tight it would not leak. And
then he came to the main
demonstration, he held up the
eyeball.
"Step on it! Walk on it! It will
not break!"
Squish, the eyeball flattened
out. He gave me a hard stare.
I shrugged.

said, and the class room erupt-

that man loved a good laugh,
even if he was the bait.
Paff's appearance never
changed. He appeared in white
pants, rolled up to show no
socks and dirty white shoes.
He wore a white undershirt,
and covered with dirty lab coat
which quickly came off and
thrown in a heap on the floor.
He was a mess!
He was a short stocky man.
He had piercing eyes, and he
spoke in short staccato sen-
tences.
"Send me a telegram!" he
would say when a student an-
swered a question by rambling
on and on. Anatomy is very
involved; he cut through the
"bullshit" and wanted a short
compact answer. He trained
you to think like a doctor. "I
don't need a novel; send me
a telegram. I taught like that
too!
Paff kept an eye on me.

"Army" and he always had
a good word for me and my
family.
Soon, after I finished my
training, he got cancer of
the prostate and died shortly
thereafter. He was one of a

An Excerpt from "The Man Of Steel"
from a book written by Paul Guzzo


The following is one chapter
from the book, "The Man Of
Steel," a biography on Tampa
Steel founder and Tampa resi-
dent the late-Bob Clark, Sr.
This is the eighth chapter of an
nine chapter book. This chap-
ter covers how be built Tampa


Steel into one of the most suc-
cessful steel companies in the
nation. Also covered in the book
are his adventures as a boxer
and hobo.
To the casual observer, this
day looked no different than
every other day of work in Bob


Clark's life.
Dust swirls about, sticking
to Bob's basted head. Mixing
with his flood of perspiration,
the dust creates a mudslide on
his head, oozing overtop the
dried caked on camouflaged
dirt that has already made

114 Frank A. Ziomek (second from left at desk) and his vice president (first
on the right hand side standing) signing their contract in 1945. Ziomek was
the union president for more than 40 years, but lost his status when the
company was sold. The workers had to start over again after the resale and
lost everything, including their pensions. When Ziomek retired in 1973 he
was credited with only 25 years of service.


Bob's forehead its home ...
but he smiles in pleasure. The
kicked up dust is a result of a
cool breeze, the first all day,
a welcome pleasure to a man
erecting steel structures in
this heat. But he takes just a
moment's break to smile and
allow the breeze to wash over
his face before returning to his
task. The breeze blows itself
out and only the stagnant Flor-
ida humid air remains, so thick
he can feel each breath weigh-
ing down his lungs. This heat
is nothing to Bob, though. He
has worked in harsher condi-
tions, picking cotton, building
tobacco barns, cutting down
trees ... take your pick.
His hair and shirt are soiled
and matted to his head and
body; he resembles the Bob
Clark who arrived in Kilgore,
Texas fresh off a hobo trip, only
this time there is no cool spring
for him to bathe in ... only work
stands before him. His hard-
ened knock out ready hands
are more scraped and bloodied
from fiddling with scolding hot
steel than they ever were from
cracking some poor sap in the
skull ... but he works on. The
steel wall is complete, a grid
of steel trusses, and Bob leaps
from his task, into the truck,
winds the wench and lifts the
wall into place. He doesn't take
time to admire his work or pat
himself on the back, but rather
leaps down from the truck
and begins work on the next
structure.
Yes, to the casual observer
this looks no different than
the thousands of blue-collar
scenes Bob has starred in
over the years, but it is very
different. Bob is not sweat-
ing, bleeding and exhausting
himself because he has to,


but because he wants to. Bob
is not working for a company
... he runs the company ... he
is the boss.
It's the late 1970s. Bob
Clark founded Tampa Steel
around 30 years ago and built
it into one of the too steel erect-
ing and fabrication businesses
in the southeast, erecting steel
structures for such world-re-
nowned corporations as MGM
and Disney, erecting Spaceship
Earth at Epcot Center, and
helping to launch the U.S. into
the forefront of the technologi-
cal age by erecting structures
for NASA. Bob is worth more
money than he could ever hope
to spend. He still travels regu-
larly, but instead of sticking
his thumb in the air he sticks
money in someone's hand for a
plane ticket. He still travels to
New York whenever work slows
up, but not to sleep alone on
dank cots and run rusty old
construction equipment, but
to sleep in five star hotels, visit
the World's Fair and sit back
and relax, enjoying his vaca-
tion with his wife and kids.
So why would a man who
now has everything he could
ever dream of work like he did
when he was just a 15 year
old,pauper in Depression-era
Georgia, when he could instead
be sitting in an air conditioned
office and have his 20 25
employees break their backs
for him? Because he didn't get
this far in life by sitting on the
sidelines and barking orders
like a basketball coach. He got
this far by grabbing that bas-
ketball and putting it through
the hoop himselfevery chance
he got. The money has not
softened him, but rather hard-
ened him. He always thought if

An Excerpt from "The Man Of Steel"


(Continued from page 9)
he worked hard money would
follow, and it finally happened
... and now he wants more. He
grew up poor, lived as a poor
adult and now that he finally
has found a way to have it all,
he wants it all. He still works
his fingers to the bone and ex-
pects his employees to do the
same. His business has taken
off because he works harder
than any man on the planet,
pays top dollar, and expects
his employees to earn every
penny.
The men in the yard who
work beside Bob might not
always like him, but they re-
spect him. They respect that
he never asks them to do a
chore he wouldn't do himself
and they respect him because
they have to. Any disrespect
will land them first on the
ground, knocked unconscious,
and then in the unemployment
line. One quick story sums up
what kind of boss Bob Clark
is and how he got to this point
in his life:
While erecting a steel struc-
ture one afternoon, Bob saw an
employee standing around-do-
ing nothing, trying to hide from
the work while others picked
up his slack. Bob steamed at
this sight, mumbling to other
employees, "The way I see it, I
had to work like a God damnf
slave to get to where I am in
life. By this guv not working,
to me he is saying he is better
than me. Why have I always
had to work for my money but
this guy doesn't? He had better
get to work or get a new job." A
couple of hours before quitting
time Bob had seen enough and
pulled the slacker aside to in-
form him that his services were
no longer needed at Tampa
Steel. The now former employ-
ee tried to act as though he had
no idea why he was being fired.
He was an excellent steel erec-
tor, he said, he thought he did
beautiful work. Bob informed
him that he may very well do
the most professional work of


anyone in the company but no
one had ever seen this work
because he does nothing but
screw around. The employee
tried to argue, but Bob again
politely told him he was fired
and walked away before more
trouble brewed ... "I ain't going
no-where old man! I gotta crow
to.pick with you," yelled the
lazy employee. A hush fell over
the worksite. Everyone knew
what was coming. With his
back to the lazy employee, Bob
balled up his hands, prepar-
ing to attack. He turned and
stormed towards his adver-
sary, who was now ghost white,
realizing he'd just bitten off
way more than he could chew.
"The first thing we're gonna
do," said Bob, as he continued
to stalk toward the once trash
talking but now quiet man, "is
straighten out this old man
stuff and then after that any-
thing you wanna discuss we
can talk about." The employee
took one look at Bob's granite
hard sledge-hammer-like giant
killers and backed off his previ-
ous statement, apologized and
calmly allowed himself to be
escorted off the premises. Bob
turned to his other employees,
who quickly got back to work,
scared to allow their boss to
see them watching rather than
working, and said, "My attitude
is, look, this is my show and
if you're capable of making
someone else rich go do that,
but if you do it my way I will
pay you enough to raise your
standard of living to a point no
one else can. If you are gonna
try and tell me how to run my
business then just leave, cause
if you knew how to do it better
than me I'd be working for you
right.now. The boss is always
right. The day you are right you
can be your own boss!"
How did this happen? How
did a former hobo and ditch
digger become a boss? How
did Tampa Steel become such
a powerful force in the hobo
trade?
It all dates back to 1945.


Germany had surrendered,
Hitler was dead and the war
would soon be over, which also
meant jobs at the shipyards
'would soon become scarce and
Bob would have to go in search
of a new job. At one point, he
had a second job to fall back
on. By nights he worked at the
shipyard and by day he worked
on a farm out in Ruskin har-
vesting cucumbers. But a
hurricane swooped through
Florida, beating the crop into
the ground. Before Bob could
salvage the crop, a heat wave
hit, baking the cucumbers
on the hot hardened soil like
eggs in a frying pan. While the
rest of the nation prepared to
celebrate the end of the war,


Bob had little to celebrate; he
would soon once again be out
of work.
Bob was tired, tired of mov-
ing from town to town, tired of
leaving his family behind, tired
of scrounging to make a buck.
He wasn't 18 anymore. He
couldn't just up and leave on
some wild adventure in search
of work. He had a wife and chil-
dren to look after. He needed
a stable lifestyle. He needed
to make a change and for the
first time in his life he had the
ability to do so. The shipyards
paid well, very well, and under
his wife's watchful eye much of
the money he earned was put
away into a nest egg for future
use. The future was now. With


the $1,500 he saved while
working .at the shipyards he
decided to start his own busi-
ness. And why not? No one
worked harder. No one knew
how to run machinery better.
He always did most of the work
on a job anyway. He might as
well earn most of the money.
Much like Kilgore during
the oil boom, Tampa was a
growing city. The rise of the
ship building industry during
the war brought approximately
31,000 workers and their
families to Tampa, changing
it from a small agricultural
town to a city that now had
the workforce to become more
modern and urbanized. Once

An Excerpt from


"The Man Of Steel"


(Continued from page 10)
known solely for its cigar and
coffee industry, Tampa now
looked to expand its horizons.
With a larger workforce than
ever before, new businesses
could be coaxed to Tampa
with the promise that all their
labor positions could easily be
filled. All this growth meant
construction projects would
be abundant, which was why
Bob knew he could succeed in
business. All he had to do was
choose his trade.
He originally considered
getting into the rock and sand
business, both necessary to
mix the tons of concrete need-
ed to continue Tampa's growth.
With his luck, though, he
decided this was not a safe
venture, as rock and sand were
too much at the mercy of the
elements. As soon as he got his
business on its feet, he knew
Mother Nature would strike it
down. He needed a business
strong enough to withstand
the toughest of his conditions,
a business as tough as him.
There was only one business
befitting a Superman-type
worker like Bob Clark steel.
He had experience operating
all the necessary steel erect-
ing machinery and had good


contacts in the steel fabrica-
tion industry from his time in
the shipyards. It seemed like a
natural fit. As with every ven-
ture in his life up to that point,
it wouldn't be easy.
In the mid 1940s, Tampa
was a one-horse town; the
construction trade was a clique
and .a new steel company
threatened to take away a good
portion of business from-, the
existing steel companies in the
area. Bob tried to get a busi-
ness license in the contractor's
trade, but rather than assist-
ing Bob the city's licensing
department laughed at him.
Bob was told he had none of
the qualifications it took to
earn a license and no one in.
the department would tell him
what he needed to do. Just
as he did in the boxing ring,
he allowed the city bigwigs
to take their best shots, but
he wouldn't give in. He knew
they would tire, they couldn't
hold him down forever, and it
was then he would deliver the
knockout blow. If no one in the
current administration would
help him, he decided to enlist
the help of what could be part
of the next administration.
George T. Taylor was run-
ning for Tampa City Council
and Bob figured if Taylor was
running .for City Council he
would surely know the city's
rules and regulations. Taylor
agreed to help Bob receive his
business license if Bob agreed
to put up election signs. The
process actually sounded sim-
ple Bob needed three general
contractors whom he worked
with in the past to vouch for
his quality of work ... the key
word was "sounded" simple.
He found two contractors
almost immediately, but the
third was much more difficult.
Many of'the contractors he had
worked with were part of the
clique, scared to cross those
in control who obviously did
not want Bob to run his own
business and become their
direct competition. Finally, af-
ter talking to every contractor
he had ever hammered a nail
for, a cabinetmaker he briefly
worked with agreed to vouch
for his work. He had all three
vouchers, but city officials still
refused his request, saying a
cabinetmaker's voucher wasn't
sufficient. Not one to back off,
he continued to hound them
day in and day out, determined
to get his license. Taylor won
the election and paid back his
debt to Bob, overruling the
ignorant city employees who
were giving Bob a hard time.
On October 1, 1945 with the
help of a friend who agreed to
become his business partner,
Tampa Steel Erecting Company
was born and Bob knew it was
only a matter of time before
this baby of his grew into a full
fledged muscle bound adult,
much like its daddy.
Bob and his partner faced
a "slight" problem, though
neither of them were engi-
neers; they had no experience
in estimating a job. But what
Bob lacked in school smarts he
made up for in ingenuity. If a
'building measured 50 feet tall
and 100 feet wide, he would
figure in his head what it would
take to erect just a few feet of it.
He would then spend the rest
of the day, maybe two or three
days if necessary, multiplying,
dividing, adding and subtract-
ing numbers in his head, esti-
mating out how much material
it would take to erect the entire
structure. To cover his butt, he
always estimated high, figur-
ing he'd rather have too much
material than not enough, and
his estimations were just as
good as an engineer's estimate
that took equations, years of

The Day Frankie Nemo Was Rubbed Out


by Mr. Nosabe
AKA El Hornet Verde
The most spectacular Mafia
gangland slaying occurred not
in Tampa but in Gainesville, Fl.
In the early 1950s- and no one
died! Those who pulled it off
later became some of Tampa's
most prominent citizens. It
is still known as the'greatest


prank ever pulled off at the
University of Florida and that
is saying something for those
of us who are Gators. No. real
names will be used in order to
protect the guilty and punish
the innocent.
It all began with a young
man named Tommy-Bob from
Baker County, a young fresh-


man at UF who happened
to end up in Buckman Hall
with three roommates (Tampa
Bananas) from Tampa. Buck-
man Hall was built in 1905
and still exists today as one
of only two dorms without air
conditioning. There were four-
bedroom suites in Buckman
with a common study area in


the middle. Those students
who lived in Buckman were
largely upper classmen and
serious students. Living there
meant you could say you actu-
ally had a chance of graduat-
ing from UF rather than being
one of those who had just at-
tended. It also meant that you
could walk across University


Ave and get a late night snack
at College Inn (C.I.), Dave's
(Also known as Dirty Dave's)
or the pool hall upstairs from
Dave's and the C.I., which is
still acknowledged by those in
the know of having the best
hamburgers ever made. The
Tampa Bananas loved Dave's
for some reason and hung out

schooling and thousands of
dollars in tuition to get.
Bob's $1,500 and his part-
ner's $1,000 or so wouldn't
buy much for the business;
Bob again needed to rely on
hard work and ingenuity to
get by. His. father-in-law had
an old worn out wench he was
willing to part with, Bob found
a cheap truck with a power
takeoff strong enough to haul
the wench around and then
built his own boom out of an
old hoist. When it came time
to pick up a piece of steel Bob
would have to put the truck
in gear on the power take off,
get out of the truck to engage
the hoist/boom with a wench
by hand, raise it up and then
get back in the truck and back
it up while his partner would
put the steel truss in place
by hand. Bob would then lift
a second truss and once his
partner set it in place would
tie them together while Bob
fetched the third truss, and so
on. It was a long, hard process,
but when Bob saw his first
check it was definitely all worth
it. Bob and his partner erected
steel for five structures at the
Tampa Bay Estuary. The labor
cost them $45 and they were
paid $190 for the job.
The next job they acquired
was at the Florida Brewing
Company in Ybor City. The
brewery's current steel con-
tractor was becoming extreme-
ly expensive to hire, charging
$35 per ton of steel plus labor
for an upcoming 20-ton job.
This steel contractor owned
stock in the company so the
brewery's union agent thought
there would be trouble if the
brewery hired anyone but
the stock owning contractor.
Wanting to build a respectful
list of clientele, Bob.knew there
was only one way to compete
for this illustrious contract
- by severely underbidding
the current stock-owning steel
contractor, offering to do the
job for $20 a ton plus labor.
Despite the brewery's union
agent's pleas, the superinten-
dent could not turn down such
a bargain.
After renting a crane his
homemade wench truck was
not suited to perform such a
major job and hiring five steel
workers, Tampa Steel pulled in
$500 for the job. When the job
was complete, the competing
contractor approached Bob,
bitching and moaning about
how Bob underbid him and


how he would do everything
he could to put Tampa Steel
out of business. To a poor farm
boy who wasn't used to seeing
so much money, nothing this
man said could deter Bob, who
informed his competitor that
he had five brothers ready to
come to his aid at a moments
call ... and they were all-much
meaner than Bob. Later that
day, Bob told the superinten-
dent about the confrontation
and was enlightened that the
contractor was just angry
because he had been ripping
off everyone in town for years
because there was no one else
to go to for steel erection. Now
that Tampa Steel was in busi-
ness, there was competition
and that contractor's days of
thievery were over.
-Tampa Steel was on its way
up and everyone in the family
pitched in when they could.
Bob's younger brother, Jack,
started working for the com-
pany as a laborer and Mary
became the office manager
... the office being their home
in Palmetto Beach in Tampa.
She would answer the phone,
schedule the jobs and close
deals, all while raising a family.
Everyone who hired Bob made
sure to ask him who that lovely
voice on his phone belonged
to and on more than one oc-
casion he won a contract over
competitors because his new
client was so impressed with
Mary's professional behavior.
Tampa Steel's success was
due as much to Mary's profes-
sionalism as it was to Bob's
hard work.
Bob's newfound success
didn't soften him up. Though
he had sworn off fighting forev-
er, a local government man did
the one thing that could lure
Bob from boxing retirement
- he picked on Bob's sister.
In 1946 one of Bob's sisters
was working for the War Assets
Department, which was cata-
loguing and preparing to auc-
tion off assets that were no lon-
ger needed by the government
at the end of WWII. There was
a tall handsome assets agent
who came to Tampa every
month and began a flirtation
with Bob's sister during his
visits. After much persistence
he won her over and Bob's
sister agreed to go on a date
with him. It became anything
but a dream date, though. The
assets manager got drunk and
frisky, attempting to rape Bob's
sister. After subduing her, he
was too drunk to perform, but


decided to keep her underwear
as a souvenir. As Bob's sister
struggled to escape, she told
the assets manager she had
six brothers who would be
prepared to defend her honor.
He laughed at her threat, tell-
ing her that her brothers would
end up dead.
Bob was naturally upset
when his sister told him what
happened and a few days
later, knowing that the as-
sets manager hung out at the
Islands Club on Davis Island,
Bob decided to bring his own
form of justice down upon the
pervert.
Bob, his brother Bill and his
sister's ex-fiancee, with whom
she was newly reconciled,
parked their cars near the Is-
lands Club and waited for the
assets manager to shbw up.
Around midnight, the assets
manager arrived with a date
and two other couples. While
the ex-fiancee held a pistol on


the other two couples, Bob in-
tercepted the assets manager,
telling him that he came to
retrieve his sister's underwear.
After beating the man down,
Bob figured the two broken ribs
he dished out with some well
placed kicks would be a long
term reminder to the assets
manager of how to properly
treat a woman. A short time
later, upon word of the incident
leaking out, six other women
came forward, proclaiming
they too had been assaulted
by the assets manager, ruining
his reputation both profession-
ally and personally. -Women
in the Tampa Bay community
would never date the pervert
again.
But, just as one volatile inci-
dent was behind him, Bob-was
met with another challenge.
After about a year and a
half together, his partnership
with his friend began to de-
teriorate; his partner's work


Stronger together.

ethic was slacking. He became
an insomniac, staying up all
night until Bob picked him up
for work-early in the morning,
then finally falling asleep in the
truck on the way to the job,
only to walk around all day
half awake/half asleep, look-
ing like a zombie, contributing
nothing positive to the job but

the upcoming contracts, and
the two of them can go their
separate ways. Bob's partner
didn't have that type of money
and said Bob knew that, so
Bob said he was going home
and in the morning after a
good night's sleep they'll work
this out. If they couldn't work
it out business-like then Bob
said they would work it out
like men with their fists. His
partner didn't come "to work
for two days. In the mean-
time, Bob found out that his
partner's real problem revolved
around jealousy, thinking that
because Bob was working the
machinery while he was stuck
doing the hand labor Bob was
looked at as the boss. When
they got together again to
discuss their problems, Bob
told him he didn't work the
machinery to steal the lime-
light but because he was a
better machine operator, which
meant the job got done faster
so they could move on to the
nextjob sooner and make more
money. Bob's whole rationale
revolved around success while
his partner's revolved around
ego. There was no reconciling
their relationship. Bob, unlike
his partner, was an intelligent
businessman and saved wise-
ly, allowing him to buy out his
partner's share of the business
and they went their- separate
ways, with Bob becoming the
sole owner of Tampa Steel.
By 1948 Tampa Steel
was making more money in
a month than Bob used to
make in one year, enabling the
company to finally buy some
proper equipment, namely a
$5,000 used Northwest Truck


Crane Bob was able to lowball
from the owner for $2,500.
With this crane he was able
to tackle more jobs arid make
more money ... but this still
wasn't enough for Bob. In
1950 Bob found a brand new
Northwest Truck Crane for
sale for $29,413. He needed
this crane, knowing such a
purchase could jettison him to
the top of his trade, as no one
else in the area owned such a
powerful piece of machinery.
He borrowed $7,000 from his
family and approached the
salesman, ready to haggle. The
salesman told Bob if he wanted
the crane he would have to sell
the dealership his old crane,
put up a quarter of the new
crane's value for a down pay-
ment and mortgage his assets
and insurance policy. Bob war
not going to agree to such a
foolish deal, so he bypassed the
ignorant salesman and went
to the man in charge a fellow
by the name of A.E. Finley.
Mr. Finley tock an immediate
liking to Bob's no nonsense ap-
proach. He agreed to sell Bob
thle crane for just $25,000 and
all Bob had to do was make
the down payment and pay the
rest through monthly install-
ments. With this new piece of
machismo machinery at his
disposal, Bob revolutionized
the steel industry.
The standard way to erect
steel structures in those days
was to raise one truss and
lean it against a building, lift
a second truss, lean it, and
then- tie them together a
time consuming process, but
necessary as the cranes were
not powerful enough to raise

more than one truss ... except
for Bob's new crane. He could
now tie two or three trusses
together on the ground and lift
them all up at once with this
new powerful crane. Bob could
finish the smaller to medium
sized jobs twice as fast and also
began acquiring the larger steel
erection contracts available
throughout the southeast. In
1955 Tampa Steel was finally
able to move from the Clark
residence into an office and
steel yard in Ybor City, 2810
Fifth Avenue.
Bob wasn't infallible,
though, and in the early 1950s
he made a decision he regret-
ted all his life. Tampa Steel
began erecting juice concen-
trators for Minute Maid. At the
time, Minute Maid was going
through rough times. It's stock
was worth just $5 a share, but
Bob's friend George Litsinger,
,Sr. told Bob he had a feeling
that Minute Maid was about to
take a turn for the better and
that Bob should buy as much
stock as he could. Bob planned
on buying 1,000 shares but
before he could make the
purchase the stock shot up to
$5.25. A self proclaimed "cheap
bastard," Bob couldn't stand
to part with the extra $250,
so he bought just 500 shares,
selling them three years later
for $10 a share. He thought he
made a decent profit, but nine
years later George Lynch, Sr.
informed Bob his shares would
have been worth $58,000 had
he kept them. Bob was a bit
winded from that heavy blow
of information, but didn't let
it bother him for long he had
jobs to tend to that would make


Steel were customers at the
same bank and when Florida
Steel's owner learned how
much money Tampa Steel was
making in the steel erecting


business he decided to expand Steel and told Bob about his
into the erecting business and new competition. Rather than
put Tampa Steel out of busi- playing defense, Bob went on
ness. Bob's insurance sales- the offensive and expanded
man owned stock in Florida (Continued on page 17)


him that much money and
then some.
For instance, in the late
1950s Tampa Steel was erect-
ing launching towers (Towers
11 and 13) for the space pro-
gram in Cape Canaveral and
was the first to erect a flame
deflector for the missiles that
would go on to launch the
space shuttles. Man had yet
to launch into outer space and
this work was part of a fierce
competition between the U.S.
and USSR to become the first
to do so. Bob and Tampa Steel
were hard at work on the flame
deflector when the Russians
launched Sputnik I on Octo-
ber 4, 1957, the first artificial
satellite to launch into space.
It was only the size of a bas-
ketball, weighing 183 pounds
and took 98 minutes to orbit
the earth, a demoralizing event
for United States, beaten by
the Russians. Russia may have
won the battle, but the U.S.
won the space war, becoming
the first country to put a man
on the moon in 1969, teaching
Bob Clark a valuable lesson
life is like a boxing match,
it doesn't matter who strikes
first, but who is left standing
in the end. A few years later,
this lesson would be put to
the test.
In the early 1970s, Tampa
Steel's reputation was spread-
ing throughout the state and
other steel companies began to
take notice, specifically Florida
Steel Corporation, which spe-
cialized in the steel fabrication
business, molding the steel
into the desired dimensions
- cutting the steel, drilling
the holes, painting the steel,

his business as well into the
steel fabrication business. He
rented space at the Hooker's
Point Shipyard for the fabri-
cation, hired a detailer and a
lay out man, and the two steel
companies went head to head,
winner take all. Florida Steel
had educated engineers and
architects on their payroll, but
Tampa Steel had Bob Clark,
one of the hardest working
and most determined men in
Florida. Florida Steel no longer
exists and Tampa Steel only
continued to grow, moving to
a larger location, 5127 Bloom-
ingdale Avenue
With the steel market all
but cornered, Bob decided to
venture out into other busi-
ness avenues, met sometimes
with success and sometimes


with failure. He lost about
$80,000 in the coal mining
industry in Virginia in 1975
and $50,000 on a concrete
business around the same
time, but in the late 1970s he
made over half a million dol-
lars on a rubber application
business and began renting
heavy equipment to other con-
struction companies for a good
profit. Tampa Steel was always
his cash cow, though, and
it is hard to travel anywhere
in Florida without passing a
structure Tampa Steel worked
on churches, warehouses,
amusement park rides such
as Spaceship Earth and Living
Seas, Bob Clark worked on it
all, successfully dragging him-
self from the depths of Depres-
sion despair to the heights of
success. When it comes to Bob


Clark's success as a business-
man, there are no adventurous
tales, near death experiences
or stories of the open road to
retell. Bob Clark's success as
a businessman may not be as
exciting as his time as a boxer
or hobo, but it is honorable. He
became successful by follow-
ing a simple creed out work
every competitor. Everything
that preceded this segment of
his life directly influenced his
success. His childhood on the
farm taught him the skill of
ingenuity. Boxing taught him
how to stand up for himself
and fight for what is his. Ho-
boing taught him the value of
hard work. His time spent on
the dike enabled him to meet
his wife, who gave him reason
to work even harder and settle
down and who helped him start


his company. And his jobs in
the shipyards taught him the
skills necessary to run Tampa
Steel. Bob Clark IS the Ameri-
can Dream come true and he
is proud of that fact.
But, there is one aspect
in his life Bob Clark is even
prouder of his family ... Un-
fortunately, Bob would be the
first to admit that he was not
always around for his five chil-
dren, Bob Jr., Donna, Johnny,
Mary Ella and Cathy, while
they were growing up. Re-
member, Bob grew up in total
poverty and once Tampa Steel
took off and began earning him
the type of money he never
thought possible,he was afraid-
to slack off, afraid to take time
away from the company on a
regular basis to be a father,
afraid that all he had worked
for would crumble down upon'
him if he did not look after it
vigilantly at all times. He didn't
work this hard out of greed;
Bob could live on a few dollars
a day sleeping in the back of a
car if he needed to, he worked
hard out of love, out of desire
to provide his children with
everything they wanted.
With Bob away at work so
often, Mary was head of the
family, driving the kids to
sports practices and ballet and
piano lessons and making-sure
they ate healthily and stud-
ied daily. Bob would take his
sons fishing and attend their
football games, but outside of
that it was Mary who raised the
children, and Bob would never
argue against that fact. As his
children grew into adults, Bob
marveled at how intelligent
they were. Unlike Bob who nev-
er attended school regularly
and was constantly tardy, his
children rarely missed a day
of school, studied hard and all
excelled academically, in both
high school and college.
Mary may have been the pa-
rental voice in the family, but
to the community Bob Clark
was still the one to fear, the
one who would set you straight

if you ever wronged any of
his children. For instance,
when a boy brought one of
his daughters home late from
a date one night, Bob threw
every curse word he knew at
the young man, then made up
a few curse words of his own
(Remember, vocabulary was
his best subject). His daughter
and wife burst out crying at the
show of rage from Bob, asking
him what the other children
in school will say when word
of this incident leaks out, but


he wouldn't back down. He
explained to them that men
.want to know that the women
they date are well looked after
and protected. He said every
boy in school would know
that Bob Clark's daughters
are decent girls because their
parents wouldn't have it any
other way. Those are the types
of girls, he explained, that boys
will respect and marry. The
next evening, the young man
called the Clark residence and
*apologized to Bob for bringing
his daughter home late. Word
of the incident did spread
and never again did any boy
or man bring his daughters
home late.
Much like his own parents
growing up, while the matriarch
provided the children with the
education they needed, it was
Bob, the patriarch who, like
his own father, provided the
children with the work ethic
they would need to be success-
ful. Since he had a hard time
being with his children due
to his heavy workload, when
they came of age he brought
his children to work with him,
but not for a hand out or to
have fun, but to work, with his
daughters working in the office
at the age of 10 and the boys
learning the business inside
' out by the time they graduated
high school. Bob never took it
easy on his sons, but treated
them as he would any other
employee. The boys started out
on the bottom and worked their
way up, working as hard and
earning the same as anyone at
Tampa Steel. As teenagers he
would send them up 15 stories
high to put up signs and had
them building rigs in the shop.
With a full knowledge of the
business and civil engineering
degrees to their name, Bob
felt safe handing over Tampa
Steel's operations to his sons,
knowing they were capable of
not only running the business,
but taking it to heights not
even he could take it.
The day his sons officially
took over Tampa Steel was
the pinnacle of Bob's career,
not only because he could
finally rest his muscles after
over 80 years of working, but
because he built something
great, a company from nothing
that he was able to pass onto
his family so they could also
enjoy the fruits of its success,
as could their children, and
their children's children, and.
so on.
Bob Clark is indeed the
American Dream.

l Av fi si t oSpai n- 19 95 P t 1. FmSlt Workson YThoCIty by 1"IF an I n I a fl


We had not been back to
Spain since Franco's last few
days in power. That was in
1975. I remember that we had
been pleasantly surprised then I
to find Spain so subdued and
orderly, with pedestrians so
well behaved, people in proper
attire and such. It was only
when we looked a little deeper,
as when we went to a movie,
that we heard some people
complaining. The censure that
engulfed the theatres, and the
close monitoring of the news-
papers and editorials was ram-
pant. Now, in 1995, 1 expected
to see many changes.


Marisol had met us at Bara-
jas airport in Madrid. She drove
us to our hotel. Plaza Castilla,
which was located next to "La
Puerta de Europa" (the Door
to Europe). It was situated on
the north end of "La Castella-
na," now Madrid's main north
- south business and growth
thoroughfare. A very organized
and also thoughtful young
lady, Marisol had selected that
hotel, which, aside from being
new and very comfortable, was
located a block from her "piso,"
or residence. She had dutifully
called us in Tampa to get our
concurrence.


The Day Frankie Nemo

Was Rubbed Out


In fact, we soon discovered
that if we opened the windows
of our room and looked east
along the walls of the hotel, we
could see her apartment facing
us in the distance. In the days
ahead, when we were returning
from our own events, we would
often open the window and,
aside from getting a fresh gust
of autumn breeze, we would
look to see if she had arrived,
so that we could pay her a
surprise visit. Mind you that
Marisol-held a high position in
the Bank of Spain in the heart
of Madrid. So we looked out
the window to see if she had
arrived at her apartment.
But this first evening she
had prepared a beautiful sup-
per in her apartment, attended
by her sister and nephew. We
were all at ease with Marisol.


Years ago she had visited us
in Tampa. The grandchildren
all remember her at Christmas
time when they opened pack-
ages. "Don't do a Marisol," they
would yell out, wanting to tear
off the wrapping to see what
was in the package. Marisol,
the epitome of grace, opened
her packages slowly and deli-
cately, thus leaving the chil-
dren with an impression they
still remember.
Madrid was as animated as
any capital can possibly be.
We did not take a taxi at this
time, for almost across from
the hotel was a large central
station for buses. With the help
of the hotel's staff we could
get pointers to anywhere in
the city. We learned several of
the routes, and suddenly the
mysteries had ceased. So, early


(Continued from page 13)
in the Plaza of the Americas
on campus. Tommy-Bob just
knew these guys with guns
were serious about bumping
off Frankie Nemo. Before he
had a chance to think about
it or notify the authorities, the
plot was hatched and set in
motion for 10 p.m. the next
night on University Ave. in
front of Dave's.
The details included luring
Tommy-Bob off to Dave's with
his roommates where he was
conveniently seated in front of
the plate glass window facing
University Ave. As the black
beans were being eaten, the big
guys kept muttering, "Frankie
Nemo is going to get it."
University Ave. was always
alive after 10 p.m. with guys
flooding out of Buckman and
the other dorms to the C.I.,
Dave's and the pool hall. When
we say guys, UF was still
mainly a man's school then.
Also, nice girls generally did
not hang out on University Ave.
at night. The only girls on the
street were the notorious "Dirty
Dozen," a group of high school
girls who paraded in front of
the C.I. teasing the guys.
As pranks go at the Uni-
versity of Florida, it is hard to
keep a secret and even though
Tommy-Bob did not know
it, the word was out that the
Tampa Bananas were going to
pull off a "gangland slaying"
on University Ave. at 10 p.m.
that night. The usual 1,000
students on the street turned
into 3,000, almost a third of
the student body, waiting on
something to happen, in front
of the C.I. and Dave's. They
weren't disappointed. As Tom-
my-Bob and his roommates
and other Bananas were seated
in Dave's, someone said loudly,
"Look, there's Frankie Nemo on
the sidewalk." No sooner than
Tommy-Bob looked out the
window than a big black Cadil-
lac roared around the corner
and a shotgun came out of the
side of the car. "BAM!!" went
the.gun loudly and Frankie
Nemo fell to the pavement
with his white shirt stained
with blood as he smashed the
catsup packets from Dave's
he had conveniently taped to


his chest. Before he could hit
the ground, a second black
Cadillac drove up to the curb,
grabbed Frankie Nemo and
roared off. Tommy-Bob im-
mediately threw up his black
beans and started crying, "I
want my mama." The crowds
on the street cheered, the
police who later came to inves-
tigate could only find catsup
stains on the sidewalk, and
no body was ever found. No
Bananas were in sight. They
had quickly walked Tommy
Bob who was now crying, "I
want to go home to my mama"
back to Buckman Hall.
As Tommy-Bob was packing
his clothes to leave Gaines-
ville, the boys decided they
would tell him it was only a
prank and produced Frankie
Nemo in the flesh to show him
Frankie wasn't really dead.
Tommy-Bob promptly passed
out because now he was seeing
a "ghost." Nothing the Bananas
could do could get him to stay
and he left school, still con-
vinced that he had been part
of a mafia slaying. He had been
a marginal student and prob-
ably would have left anyway
at the end of the semester so
rationalized the Bananas. One
of the Bananas later found out
he had transferred to FSU and
graduated, so the story ended
well.
.The Bananas had pulled off
the greatest prank ever at'UF
and all the participants in the
rubbing out of Frankie Nemo
returned to Tampa and became
our finest citizens. Frankie
Nemo and the fish man are no
longer with us, but live on in
our hearts.
This author was riding in
a crowded elevator one day
recently and a young attorney
with the same name as his
late-dad, a prominent attor-
ney, as is his son, got on. I
muttered, "Frankie Nemo" and
without turning around, that
young attorney said, "That was
my dad."
Any of La Gaceta readers.
who were there and remember
this, feel free to send your rec-
ollections of the event to this
newspaper. But make sure
they remain anonymous to
protect those involved!

in the mornings after a super
breakfast at the hotel, we were
off to town. On a brisk morning
- the sun shining, of course, as
it does most of the time in the
broad central plans of Spain
- the boulevards seem alive
with activity. People coming
and going, all seemingly well
dressed and businesslike. Add-
ing a delightful feeling were the
hundreds of Platanero trees
(Sycamore) that line up the
boulevard and side streets.
Waving in the light breeze,
they added a certain zest to
the scene, arousing a sense
of freshness. And the sense of
being in a democratic country
was immediately apparent,
for people smiled and went
where they pleased. It was an
open society, with its strong
(Continued on page 19)

(Continued from page 18)
and weak points. If it became
too one sided, elections would
correct that (which it did in
May).
Those first few days in Ma-
drid were great. Marisol guided
us around to her favorite locals
in the town, which of course,
included the Prado. Serrano
Street and La Fran Via. In 1975
this latter one was an upscale
shopping avenue. It had rela-
tively little competition. Today
it has lost a part of its luster.
La Castellana and others had
taken over. We took a long lei-
surely walk through the Centro
business district, then lunched
at the teeming' Corte Ingles,


Spain's equivalent of Dillards
or Burdines. And we went
through the Royal Palace, the
Queen Sofia's picture gallery
by Otocha, walked through the
flea market, the Ambajadores
district and returned to a
leisurely walk along El Prado
and the Botanical gardens. We
walked. In Madrid one walks
or takes the bus. There are
thousands of cars in the bou-
levards, but who needs them
when you are just doing the
"Centro," or close by.
Aside from what we had in
mind was what my grandmoth-
er wanted to do, which we have
a high priority to. Certainly
a lunch at the newly opened


Hardrock Cafe on la Castel-
lana was a beautiful moment,
complete with the acquired T-
shirt for her brother, Cabezon
(Hard Head, affectionately,
mind you). The service was
great and the crowd was a
mixture of young Spanish and
American couples, full of rev-
elry. And I must tell you that
one of my better moments in
Madrid was when the women,
now with Marisol, went shop-
ping again. To my surprise and
delight, Marisol marched me
to a cafe blocks away, ordered
my cafe con leche and before
the.waiter brought it, she had
bought a copy of the day's El
Pais, one of the two prominent


newspapers in Madrid. She did
not leave until she had checked
the cafe, con leche to make
sure I was happy with it! Then,
having disposed of me, she
quickly headed back to Gloria
and Angela. Now, with a fresh
breeze blowing, a platanero
tree shading me, a cup of cafe
and toast, I lost myself in the
printed words of El Pais. Yes,
I was in Spain!
Marisol worked at the Bank
of Spain, in the very heart of
Madrid, across from Los Ci-
beles, that beautiful fountain
at the junction with La Calla de
Alcala. So the next two days, as
she manned her post, we saw-
Madrid via the starts and stops
that it takes to see "la villa,"
the village, as Madrilenos af-
fectionately call their city.
The village of Madrid was
first built by the Moors in
the ninth century, but it took
Phillip II, tired of Toledo, to
update this piece of"le meseta
central" (central plateau) for
his capitol. Here it housed all
of the essential infrastructure
needed to run his empire, and
to house the huge number of
ambassadors it took to com-
municate with the world.
Wanting to stay a distance
away, however, Pillip II retired
to El Escorial, in the foothills
of the Guadarrama mountain
range, some 30 miles to the
north. Built at his orders, it
was a huge combination of
monastery, palace, theater,
sepulcher and personal head-
quarters for his world empire.
Founded in 1563, it was in-
spired by the defeat of the
French forces in faraway San-
Quintin, in the Low Countries,
then a Spanish possession.
Hence the old use in Ybor City
when talkingabout a distant
locale, "mas lejos que la San


Quintin!" meaning, "further
than San Quintin." The name
"villa" caught on, and Madrid
is still proud of this chic appel-
lation even today.
Angela, our 17 year old
granddaughter, made every
moment of the trip very memo-
rable. But she had to return
in two weeks to enter school.
And it was precisely to show
her Spain that we hurried to
crowd in as many memories as
possible in the two weeks she
would be with us.
Meanwhile, I was deter-
mined to learn more of the lay-
out of this "village." I was tired
of reading about this or that
, sight, plaza, famous theater or
landmark without really know-
ing its location. I had to see its
relative location if I was to be
comfortable talking about it. So
we toured Madrid with guides.
SI familiarized myself with major
landmarks. I often read about
la Plaza de Lavapies, of Plaza
Tirso de Molina (great literary
figure), and others. Clustered,
mind you, in or around the
broad "Centro" district, home
also, of Plaza del Sol and Plaza
Mayor. Jovellanos was named
after an Asturian nobleman,
eminent man of letters and in-
tellectual. The street where the
Teatro La Zarzuela is located
is named after him. Here, in
an earlier trip, we had seen
the Zarzuela, La Del Manojo
de Rosas (The damsel with
the handful of Roses) at that
theater.
The Zarzuela, of course, is
the musical comedy form that
James Michener fell in love
with as he roamed Spain in
preparation for his publica-
tion of "Iberia." The diction-
ary defines it as a light opera

or musical comedy. Gilbert
and Sullivan comes close to
resembling a Zarzuela. It is
very familiar to citizens of Ybor
City, West Tampa and much
of Tampa, thanks to some
35 years of the Spanish Lyric
Theater, and to visiting shows
in the past decades. We had
gone to Palancia to stay a
few days with Manolo, one of
my wife's many cousins, and
Pepita. Their daughter, Julie,
and husband Pepe had been to
see us in Tampa long ago. Pepe
is an esteemed painter and
sculpturer. And we had been
with Manolo and Pepita at his
apple farm in north Palencia on
a previous trip. Now we would
be visiting the family in their
respective pisos, residences, in
the heart of Palencia, briefly,
before Manolo would drive us
to Astudillo in the Castilian
countryside.
Pepita woke us up early
the following morning, and
as we made preparations for
the trip, she excused herself
and went down the elevator.
Within five to 10 minutes she
was back with freshly baked
bread and some beautiful fruit
and pastries. Most of her daily
needs were on the same block
or around the corner from
fruit market to clothing and
banking. She had walked and
greeted familiar faces doing
the same thing. At seven in
the morning the food suppliers
were doing business. You don't
need a car in much of Spain,
unless there is a reason for
it. The parks and plazas are
all nearby. People walk the
avenues leisurely, under the
canopy of beautiful "platane-
ros" (Sycamore trees).
We were fascinated by the
tree ripened green, "claudias"
(plums) and Spanish "sandias"
(cantaloupes). And the choice
of a freshly made loaf of bread
and pastries, along with hot
thick Spanish chocolate and
churros, and the beautiful
breeze through the window
made it all seem like paradise.
Pepita remembered that years
ago, on a very cold day in late
fall, she made me some very
hot and thick chocolate and
churros on the farm, and that
I loved it. Chocolate in Spain
can almost be eaten with a
spoon.
With the window opened,
we could hear Pepita with her
daughter and our granddaugh-
ter on the "piso" above. Gloria
and I were in seventh heaven.


The family came to see us off.
Angie had spent the night with
her cousins, above. She would
spend more days with them on
our return. For now, Astudillo
was the target.
Castilla Castilla la Vieja -
land of little precipitation, land
of many low mountains and of
light clay looking prairies and
slopes, of mild greenery in-
fused with a light clayish earth.
Castilla begs the heavens for
rain that falls too infrequently.
It is a land where it seems the
world stands still. As Manolo
drove I often looked in vain for
evidence of life in the great rise
and fall of the earth. But what
I most often saw were faraway
shepherds in the field, tending
sheep huge herds of them,
with one or two dogs, visible
only as specks, running here
and there to bring back some
wayward sheep.
Hardly visible, except for the
chopo trees that dutifully lined
them, were the narrow streams
where the mountains met the
prairies. Chopos are slender
green trees that grow well
along these streams, receiving
moisture from them. And here
and there in the wandering
fields were scattered encinas,
a smallish oak-like tree that
begs for attention because of
its few numbers.
As we drove through the
low mountains and valleys I
couldn't help but remember
pieces of history of old Castilla.
It was hard to believe that we
were not farfrom its heart, but
rough estimates reassured me.
To the south at a good distance
was Madrigal de las Altas
Torres, Medina de Campo.
Tordesilla and Arevalo. Spain's
history once swirled around
these barren lands. In Madrigal
de las Altas Torres, Isabela was
born. This was in the late 15th
century, the end of the medi-
eval age and the beginning of
the Renaissance.
In medieval days, Medina
de Campo had been a center
of western world banking. Here
bankers from many European
countries would come to ex-
change letters of credit and
such. Here, too, decades later,
the forces of Aragon had fought
a pitched battle with King Al-
fonso V of Portugal for control
of Spain, upon the death of
Isabela's father. And years
later, in the reign of Juana
la Loca (Joan the Demented),
daughter of Isabela, the future
of the western world's great-
est empire would continue to


gestate.
After much twisting and
turning I gave up trying to
keep my bearings faithful to
the north and south of it. I was
hopelessly lost in the plains of
Castilla. Even the sun seemed
to pop behind a slope at dif-
ferent angles than I expected.
But Manolo knew. In spite of
Gloria's plea to slow down,


he kept his utterly fast pace.
Shortly after we saw, again, a
lonely shepherd with his sheep
and dog, we took a turn and
entered into the small town of
Astudillo. How peaceful and
impenetrable it first seemed.
Except for some modern com-
munications, which was hard
to see, it seemed to be like one
imagines a far away town in


the medieval ages to be. "But
the town people where are
they?" I asked myself. But an-
other turn or two brought us
to an old monastery, and, of all
things, surrounded by dozens
of automobiles, and people
coming from the opposite side.
We got out and soon were in
the midst of Sunday dressed

country people. They stood out,
just as we stood out to them.
I would not have missed them
for the world. Many were family
members.
We met Marisol's parents,
Urbano and Encarna they
looked happy and serene. They


made a handsome couple. It
was their 50th anniversary -
50 years of togetherness in this
corner of Castille. They seemed
ready to face another 50 years,
for their smile and grace spoke
of serenity and unhurried life.
They seemed very proud of
Marisol and Encarnacion, their


other daughter.
The event was taking place
in the Monasterio de Santa
Clara. It had been constructed
circa 1354. Its construction is
Mudejar, a style introduced
by the Moors in Spain. That

the building, no doubt from ap-
proximately 400 year Visigoth-
ic (Germanic) period of Spain.
This building was no doubt
the jewel of these surrounding
lands of Spain. It was originally
the Palace and Museum of Pe-
dro I, a king of Spain. Now it
was a monastery.
I'm not much into these
things like the renewal of
vows, the exchange of rings,
the singing and ecclesiastics
- yet it had to be! .I studied the
myriad of faces of these sober
Castellanos their configura-
tion and sizes, their weight
and the expressions on their
faces, their complexion and
outward expression. And, of
course, they were people like
us. I sensed, however, that
they were happier with life
and their situation then we
were with ours. They seemed
to have weathered better the
turmoils of life.
The ceremony lingered and
I shifted to looking at the
museum pieces around the
vestibule, the pulpit made in
Mudejar and the many Moor-
ish objects. Soon it all began.
As they stood up before the
audience, the ceremony hav-
ing begun, Encarna looked
enchanted. Urbano well, I
saw him glance at the clock
- in Mudejar, not Moorish,
mind you. He was looking up
towards the higher levels when
last I looked at him I thought it
might signal the start of a long
afternoon. The men seemed to
understand. But after some
beautiful singing and desert,
it ended. It was a wonderful
reaffirmation of togetherness
- and of love. My wife drooled
and Marisol was deliriously
pleased.
Marisol had planned this-
event. We were her guests, so
we didn't ask, "What next?"
Gradually the crowd moved into
the monastery itself. I could
feel the first pangs of hunger.
Bread and water would do. We
met many more people, simple,
most lovable, without any false
airs one sees so often. Then
the doors opened. Before us
was a table for some 50 or so
people. It was beautifully set. I
wondered what the-large space
to the left was. It had iron bars,
but laced here and there. It
became clear. This was a mon-
astery for nuns. The room was
filled with nuns there, behind
the bars. They were Cloistered
Nuns, I learned. They never
left the monastery none but
one. This one was allowed to

gather supplies and represent
the others. They seemed deliri-
ously happy.
We were asked to sit down.
There was a blessing and open-
ing remarks were made. The
table was beautifully set all
done by the Nuns, we learned.
Soon, sumptuous food was
deposited on our dishes and
plates, different wines and ci-
ders were brought in, for those
desiring it. Toasts were made.
I remember Marisol looking
at us to catch our very im-
pressed look. Our granddaugh-
ter placed between Oscar and
Henrique, both distantly re-
lated, while my wife sat next to
the veterinarian. The honored
were placed at the central loca-
tion of the tables, overlooking
the cloistered nun, Marisol,'to
their right, and at the far end
they placed me, But not alone.
Manolo and Pepita were to my
left. Angela looked pleased at
this medieval-like setting. A
part of her roots had come from
Castilla, Asturias, Cantabrica
and Galicia. I reminded her
of this.
Suddenly, amidst the clam-
or and excitement, the nuns
began singing. But to my
surprise they opened up with
an Habanera a ravishingly
beautiful Habanera, the words
enveloped in religious over-
tones. Then this was followed
by two more Habaneras. The
applause raised their spirits to
the high heavens. A murmur

of whispers and giggling could
be heard from behind the bars.
They had overwhelmed us.
We were again into the food
when some ten or more late
teenagers came running in,
strumming guitars, mando-
lins, and other local instru-
ments in hand, and singing
-regional songs. This was a
Tuna-like performance. They
were dressed in medieval at-
tire, similar to the dress of
the Tuna troupes that today
are attached to universities
throughout Spain. Their ex-
istence dates back to medi-
eval times when individuals
strummed their instruments to
earn their tuition. Today it is a
very organized and cherished
part of university life. We have
had these Tuna groups come to
Tampa. It was at Hillsborough
High School that I was invited
by my sister, then Language
Department head, to see my
first Tuna group. This was in
the late 1960s. Now, at the
anniversary feast they added

much zest to the event.
A series of toasts to the
ceremonial matrimony- to the
occasion to guests far away,
to the Nuns, to their conscien-
tious and fruitful work to the
singing troupe to everyone.
Coupled with the delicious
roast pork, accessories and the
wines, the coffee and desserts,
we were deliriously happy.
And when the nuns returned
to sing, members at the table
returned with a song of their
own.
After a slow walk enjoying
the country museum within
the monastery, we said fare-
well to Urbano and Encarna,
Nuncia and family and the
town's illustrious veterinarian
and his wife. Then we left. A
delightful event. Unequaled, I
thought. Gloria and I were ex-
tremely happy that our grand-
daughter had been a part of it
all. Bidding a fond farewell to
everyone, especially Marisol
and her parents, Urbano and
Encarna and the many de-
lightful Castellanos we moved
ahead to the heart of the town.
We would see Marisol again in
Madrid in days to come.
The town of Astudillo has
a Plaza. What town in Spain
doesn't claim or aspire to one.
The townspeople sat at the
many white chairs, product
of the cafes or eating places.
What is a town without a cen-
tral Plaza? There, under the
beautiful plataneros (sycamore
trees), they sat, the chatter
and laughter spilling all over
the plaza. We could not, help
but enjoy the town people,
their simple and wholesome
pleasures.
Manolo, a Castellano him-
self, was in his element. He
talked at length to several
men of the town. I listened
carefully to -try to get the feel
of life in these virtual medi-
eval towns -so unchanging.
New ideas didn't really stand
much of chance here. Best not
to drop too many. The town
fathers included the teacher,
the doctors and veterinarian,
the church, a distant Marques,
and if needed, the Guardia
Civil (National Civil Guard),
which was in the distant hills,
somewhere. Was this the world
of Unamuno, the world he ex-
uded and defended? Was this
the "Spanishness" he wrote
about? Of the deep seated val-
ues found in the towns? It was
the world of the Catholic faith,
the Monarchy and the Army to
keep it so.


It was not the world of
Ortega y Gasset (one person),
Unamuno's opposite. They
were two of Spain's great-
est thinkers of the early part
of the 20th century. Ortega
y Gasset's world rebelled at
Unamuno's simplistic world,
for he said it was the rea-
son that, a century after the
French Revolution, Spain was
a world apart from the rest of
Europe. Spain was backward,
disgustingly backwards. It
was the new forces of change
and progress that Ortega ex-
pounded, the world of reason,
science and enlightenment. He.
*despised half educated people,
people who did not project,
simply responded without
deep reasoning. They could
be coerced, maneuvered. They
went with the wind! Though he
was referred to as "el Europeo"
(the European), and he looked
to that world as his model, he,
too, was as Spanish as the
windmills.
But the events at the mon-
astery this noon: the gathering,
the beautiful nuns singing, the
Habaneras, the honest emo-
tions, the inherent greatness
of mankind ... why couldn't
there have been some compro-
mise? Needed was a saving of
the best of-both sides, and a
compromise by the anchored
forces that would not allow a
centimeter of change and a
severing of all the impurities
from the extreme left.
In 1931, the Second Repub-
lic was voted in with Niceto
Zamora as President. Our
fathers in Tampa backed it
with their hearts, their wal-
lets and their time. However,
by 1936, just before Franco's
rebellion started, the Popular
Front had captured the votes
to govern the Republic. Headed
by a very respected President
Manuel Azana, it received wide
support in the Tampa Spanish
colony.
But by the latter months of
the war, the Republic was more
an illusion than a fact, for the
extreme radicals had virtually
taken over, and Russian en-
croachment was unstoppable.
Socialists, Anarchists and rad-
icals of many shades were rep-
resented gradually in the Popu-
lar Front. These grew stronger
with time. Moreover, our own
foreign policy so bullish and
unwise had accelerated the
move of the Popular front to the
left for with out allies we had
established a non-intervention
position, backed a blockage
against Spain and had frozen


the Republic's $120,000,000 in
our banks (a fortune today). We
allowed Germany and the Fas-
cist Mussolini to use Spain as
a practice run for World War II,
killing 1,600 in a single bomb-
ing over Guernica alone. The
Popular Front had nowhere to
go for arms but towards the
Russians, who capitalized on


the opportunity.
The struggle in Spain was
an emotional saga that tied our
fathers to Radio Madrid. Our
families were faithful to the
Loyalists the Republic. This
writer was a boy of 17 when
the war ended and with father
had listened to. Radio Madrid
every night, after having read


the early morning edition of
the Tribune at the Columbia,
along with a cup of coffee.
As the Popular Front became
increasingly radical, much of
what came in one can now
believe was romanticized and
distorted.
In Tampa, our fathers want-

ed the Republic the demo-
cratic republic, though at that
late period of the depression
years Ybor City still had its
share of extreme radicals. The
battle reports were probably
correct. But the political events
were slowly distorted. Extreme
leftists were already forming
communes in the countryside
in Spain. Communes? Yes,
they had them in the northern
provinces. This is not what the
majority of our fathers wanted!
As my father's Asturian and
Gallego neighbors gathered in
the early evenings under the
sycamore trees (The Platerne-
ros in Spain) alongside our
corner yard a regular event
- all I heard was of the need
for a better quality of life, for
progress, equality, freedom,
for good education, and a rep-
resentative government. They
spoke of the Republic and of
the Loyalist, those loyal to the
Republic.-In Ybor City there
were many other radical opin-
ions, of course. This was an in-
dustrial town. Did I see more?
Yes, as a grammar school boy a
lady several blocks away would
hang red ties on us youngsters
- until the fathers and moth-
ers caught on. One saw much
more. As to the Nationalists
during the war they kept
silent.
No, between the Nationalists
and the Republic there could
not be compromise. It was
too far gone for discussions.
The Republicans wished for
legitimate representative de-
mocracy. It wanted to educate
it had to educate. In the first
two years of the 2nd Republic,
under 10,000 new schools
had been built when Ferando
de Los Rios was minister of
education. But this was not
acceptable- to the trilogy the
Monarchy, the Church and
the Army for enforcement. The
Republic had to be derailed. On
a visit to Galicia in 1975, this
writer observed farm people in
several towns crouching in the
bushes to relieve themselves,
using leaves to assist them.
For many, there were not even
outdoor baths. In 1929, two
years before the Republic, 83
percent of the farmers were
earning under one peseta per
day! This was the Spain of the
triloav. Is it any wonder our
fathers were sent overseas,
aside from evading being sent
to fight the Moors?
No, there would be no com-
promise. When the Popular
front arrived, the slow begin-
ning of the end started. Some
said it was a clash of light and
darkness. The immensity of
the hatred was irreconcilable.
The war began in 1936 and
would be over in early 1939.
Whatever, it resulted in under
a million dead or wounded.
The 2nd Republic had been
derailed. It was a bitter disap-
pointment for our fathers and
mothers.
Peculiarly, the man that
