We wish our readers and adver-
tisers a Thanksgiving weekend
filled with the warmth of friends
and family. Please count the
many blessings that you enjoy
and remember those who are not
as fortunate. We will pray for the
families whose loved ones are


320


overseas in the military serving
their country. Their holidays are
likely to be difficult and filled with
worry over their loves ones' safety.
We will keep a special place in
our hearts for the families whose
worry has turned to loss.
-The current death toll of U.S.


military in Iraq is 3,873 and in
Afghanistan it's 468. Thousands
at home will feel these losses for
years. We should not forget the 28,489
wounded, many of whom will be
forever disabled. And for those who
return to health, the scars inside
and out might never allow them
to recapture a normal life.

The No Guts No Glory Greater
Tampa Chamber of Commerce
continues to suffer with turnover
in its staff. We hear Maria Hubert,
director of international trade &
investments for the chamber, is
leaving. There are whispers that
.the chamber makes it impossible
for its staff to get anything ac-


complished, especially in the area
of trade. Any progress that could
cause even the slightest contro-
versy is smothered by Chamber
President Kim Scheeler. We tried
to talk to Ms. Hubert but she was
so nervous she wouldn't even
confirm that she was leaving.
Management has their employees,
even their former employees, too
scared to talk.
The chamber's lack of focus and
drive is leaving a huge leadership
vacuum in the Tampa Bay area's
effort to attract global trade. Our
port continues to lose overall traf-
fic volume or remain stagnate. Our

Clasicos latinoamericanos
Escuchamos en estos dias a un comentarista radial afirmar que,
la rivalidad mas viva, era entire los Yanquis de Nueva York v los
Medias Rojas de Boston. Sin near la'fuerza de las confrontaciones
entire esas novenas de la Liga Americana del llamado Big Show.
queremos decir que en passion y furia estan muy por debajo de la
rivalidad que se desparrama en cada juego del Boca Junior contra
el River Plate, en Buenos Aires (sobre todo los que se realizan en
La Bombonera o Caldera del Diablo, el estadio de Boca); o el Flu-
Fla de Rio de Janeiro, o sea Fluminense contra Flamengo en el
Maracana; y que decir de los est-uendosos partidos de beisbol Ma-
gallanes contra los Leones del Caracas, en el estadio universitario

San Miguel Hernandez
Dos santos mundanos se que-

que hizo el Vaticano de los mar-

Federico Garcia Lorca y Miguel
Hernandez. En el caso de Lorca,
apellido segundo con el que la
gente lo saca del barranco de los
sacrificados, el asunto no es tan
grave. Sobre todo, porque cada
vez que se encienden los cenitales
sobre el entarimado donde habi-
tan los personajes creados por el,


hay una celebraci6n plural que lo
regresa al espacio sagrado de las
obras donde Federico vive dan-
dole vueltas al mundo nuestro
de cada dia. Amen.
A pesar de que no se sabe por
d6nde andan sus huesos, cada
vez que un andaluz se Ilene de
alegria, siempre que respire una
guitarra y mientras haya quien
pise las calls de Nueva York, se
repetira el milagro de las meta-
foras que lo pusieron a vivir para
siempre.

Actualidad de


America Latina


Uruguay
El ministry uruguayo de Economia y Finanzas, Danilo As-
tori, afirm6 hoy que el Mercosur "esta herido y en situaci6n
muy complicada" debido a la postura "proteccionista" de las
economies grandes del bloque, Argentina y Brasil. El Mer-
cosur esta en una situaci6n "muy complicada y desde hace
much tiempo porque ni Argentina ni Brasil acceden a to-
mar las medidas que deben tomar para empezar a corre-
gir las asimetrias que en el bloque son notorias", afirm6 el
ministry uruguayo, segun Efe. Los dos socios pequefios del
Mercosur, Uruguay y Paraguay, "hemos hecho punta en este
tema y seguimos trabajando para tratar de mejorarlo", agreg6
Astori en declaraciones a Radio Sarandi de Montevideo desde
Malasia, donde acompafia al president uruguayo, Tabare
Vazquez, en una gira official.

Venezuela
El diario The Washington Post dijo que el president de
Venezuela Hugo Chavez esta dando "un golpe" con su re-
forma constitutional, debido a que el pais "terminara de
transformarse en una dictadura". "La fuerza y coraje de la
resistencia al senior Chavez esta, sin embargo, en aumento",
afirm6 en un comentario editorial el peri6dico de tendencia
liberal, reseil6 AP. Segun el diario, "Venezuela esta al borde
de sucumbir a una dictadura que aislara y retrasara al
pais, quizas por decadas", pero destaca que "Es alentador
que gran parte de su pueblo no este preparado para rendir
su libertad sin pelear". The Washington Post, sefiala que
las manifestaciones estudiantiles han sido reprimidas vio-.
lentamente con "grupos paramilitares auspiciados por el
Gobierno" y que la represi6n violent "es s6lo un ejemplo
del detestable clima de intimidaci6n que el sefor Chavez
esta creando en adelanto al referendo del 2 de diciembre,
que se espera lo confirm formalmente como president de
facto de por vida y le de poderes que s6lo rivalizan con los
de su mentor, Fidel Castro". Para el diario, la forma en que
Chavez redact6 los cambios completea su transformaci6n
en un aut6crata".
Paraguay
El ex general paraguayo Lino Oviedo, candidate presiden-
cial para los comicios del 2008, critic duramente al regi-
men del president venezolano, Hugo Chavez, y defendi6 a
Brasil como la potencia en Suramerica. Sin citar el nombre
del president venezolano, el exjefe del Ejercito paraguayo
declar6: "muchos entran como socialdem6cratas con una
norma de ser electo por un period y al asumir el poder,
con infraestructura econ6mica, convierten a ese pais en
social-estatista, que es tan igual o peor que una dictadu-
ra", destac6 Efe. Oviedo elogi6 al president brasilefio, Lula
da Silva, aJ descartar la reform constitutional para aspi-
rar a un tercer mandate.

Peru
Fuentes de Inteligencia de Peru detectaron planes de
penetraci6n en el pais por parte de seguidores del presi-
dente de Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, segtun la prensa limefia.
Los planes incluyen la formaci6n de grupos "chavistas"
de profesores, auxiliares de educaci6n, estudiantes de se-
cundaria y padres de familiar, estimulados por becas de es-
tudio entregadas por la Embajada de Venezuela en Lima,
segun u'n informed de la Direccion Nacional de Inteligencia
(DINI) revelado por el diario limeio El Comercio, cit6 DPA.
Las coordinaciones, indica el document, se hacen a traves
del Sindicato Tecnico de Trabajadores de la Educaci6n de
Peru (Sutep), que reuine a 300.000 docentes del Estado y
que esta controlado por el partido maoista Patria Roja. El
informed de la DINI se conoce un dia despues de que la pres-
identa de la Comisi6n de Defensa del Congreso, Mercedes
Cabanillas, denunciara una penetraci6n "chavista".

Cuba
Terminr la epoca de las vacas flacas en Cuba, dicen los
habitantes de Cienfuegos despues de recibir del Estado 227
gramos de care bovina por primera vez desde la crisis de
1990. Aurique racionada, la care distribuida en octubre
se convirti6 en un acontecimiento en Cienfuegos, a 256
kil6metros de La Habana, sefial6 Reuters. El president,
Raul Castro, ha prometido "cambios estructurales" para
reducir la dependencia cubana de las importaciones. La
care bovina, que dej6 de venderse libremente unos afios
despues de la revoluci6n en 1959, acarrea p6nas de carcel
para los traficantes.

Al Pie de la Letra


(viene de la pagina 1)
tarde a la fiesta de la vida. Desde
que nace pobre de solemnidad
en Orihuela (nombre que huele
a naranjas, aceitunas, granadas
y turrones) hasta que muere con
sus pulmones llenos de vacio y
tuberculosis en el laberinto car-
celario, todo fue un camino de
suplicios, un calvario de poster-
gaciones que lo colocan en la
via dolorosa de los mArtires que
merecen la beatificaci6n.

Algunos alegatos
Uno de sus dramas es que
al poeta siempre le impusieron
el destino, incluida la guerra. Y
s6lo se le impone el destino a los
inocentes, condici6n que ya, de
por si, le merece la vida eterna.
Su primer libro, que quiso lla-
mar Poliedros, fue cambiado por
razones de mercadeo (segun se
dice hoy en dia) a Perito en lunas,
titulo magico y premonitorio ex-
traido de un verso de los poemas
que conforman el libro. Desde
alli qued6 condenado a ser una
metafora de si mismo: un satellite
de su propio sueno. dQue queria
Miguel? Bueno, segun su histo-
ria, seguir pastoreando cabras y
escribir la poesia mas universal.
Dificil asunto que cumpli6 con
estoicismo extreme en todos los
tramites de su vida de relegado.
Cuando fueron publicados
sus primeros textos en "El
Pueblo" de Orihuelay en "El Dia"
de Alicante, el mundo se le co-
menz6 a poner chiquito. Decidi6
entonces un viaje a la metr6poli
provinciana del Madrid de 1931
para abrirse los caminos. Atris
quedaron las tertulias con sabor
a harina junto al horno de los
Fenoll, donde se hizo amigo de
Ram6n Sije. Pero la aventura
citadina se le convirti6 en su-
plicio.
Los poemas primigenios bajo
el brazo, algunas recomendacio-
nes que pujaban por ayudarlo en
su bisqueda del exito literario
y vital, la precaria asistencia
econ6mica de unos pocos ami-
gos de Orihuela, la resena de las
revistas "La Gaceta Literaria" y
"Estampa" (noticiando su presen-
cia y clamando por ayuda official
para conseguirle un trabajo al
poeta-pastor) s6lo fueron buenas
intenciones que le empedraron el
camino del retorno a Orihuela.
Regres6 a su pueblo con mas
huecos en los zapatos de los que
tenia cuando salio a perseguirse
a si mismo. Y eso duele.
Acusado
Lo peor que le pas6 a Miguel
Hernandez, literariamente
hablando, fue haberse atrevido a
escribir, en homenaje a G6ngora,
Perito en Lunas. El de Orihuela
quiso ganarse su derecho a ex-
istir poeticamente metiendose en
la Generaci6n del 27, que tambien
le habia puesto el ojo al escritor
barroco, pero, por razones de
2007


edad, no le correspondia. Eso de
querer igualarse a gente de otra
dpoca result una tentaci6n al
diablo de lo desconocido y, por
tanto, una herejia condenable con
la exclusion. Ademas, cuando se
le rinde homenaje a un poeta,
hay que meters en cada Atomo
de su voz hasta hacerla propia.
El resultado es un diAlogo c6m-
plice entire dos amigos, que el
mundo escucha como un secret
indescifrable. Por eso G6ngora,
mis alla de todo, le sopl6 desde ul-
tratumba su sino poetico cuando,
preterido tambien, tuvo que
retirarse a C6rdoba a escribir
sus Soledades y le dijo: "El que
de cabras fue dos veces ciento",
asunto que en Miguel era una
condicion natural.
De todos modos, result
tachado de herm4tico, enigmati-
co y gongorino, triple pecado
del cual intent librarse, por
fortune, sin lograrlo nunca del
todo.
Miguel (perd6nenme la con-
fianza, pero esto es un asunto
personal) resume-la gran para-
doja de su vida: todo lo condena
y todo lo redime. Cuando pre-
tende venderle un ejemplar de
El Gallo Crisis, revista que habia
fundado con Ramon Sije en Ori-
huela, a Pablo Neruda, el gran
pontifice poetico del momen-
to, este le responded: "Querido
Miguel,. siento decirte que (...) Le
hallo demasiado olor a iglesia,
ahogado en incienso". Sentencia
lapidaria que le cercena la posi-
bilidad de entrar temprano en
el cielo de los consagrados y que
le dej6 a ambos una deuda que
seria compensada a future.

Siempre campesino
Pero es el mismo Neruda,
quien nos da arguments para
su absoluci6n. En un pasaje de
Confieso que he vivido, uno de
sus libros de memories, dice:
"Miguel era tan campesino que
llevaba un aura de tierra en
torno a el. Tenia una cara de
terr6n o de papa que se saca de
entire las raices y que conserve
frescura subterrnea"., QuizA
fue el mismo simil rural y la
necesidad de saldar la deuda
que le qued6 cuando le arruin6
el proyecto editorial, lo que lo
impulse a buscarle trabajo entire
el laberinto seco y administra-
tivo que conoci6 en el mundo
de sus andanzas diplomaticas
de Madrid.
El benefactor era un vizconde
(cuyo nombre no conocemos
por olvido de Neruda) que leia y
admiraba los versos de Miguel,
tanto, que pregunto acerca del
cargo que deseaba el poeta de
Orihuela. Cuenta Neruda en el
mismo libro, que le dio, emocio-
nado, la buena nueva a Miguel
Hernandez: "al fin tienes un des-
tino. El vizconde te coloca. Serds


un alto empleado. Dime que
trabajo deseas ejecutar para que
decrcten tu nombramiento".
Despues de muchas cavi-
laciones, enjuto, con sus ojos
brillantes de sus mismos suefios
campesinos, Miguel Hernan-
dez le respondi6 preguntando:
"gNo podria el vizconde encom-
endarme un rebafio de cabras
por aqui cerca de Madrid?".

La despedida
Una elegia es la rememoracion
estridente y laudatoria de un
.hecho tragico, escrita con la
esperanza de negar la muerte
igualadora. Es lo que hace Jorge
Manrique al preguntarse, "eQue
se hizo el rey don Juan? / Los
infants de Arag6n / .que se
hicieron?"; como esperando la
posibilidad de una respuesta
que los regrese de su mundo de
sombras. Lo mismo que ocurre
en el"Llanto por Ignacio SAnchez
Mejias", cuando Lorca pone a
vivir otra vez al torero, "como un
rio de leones", aunque sea en el
instant eterno del poema.
Pero con Miguel Hernandez
la esencia reivindicatoria de
la elegia es Ilevada hasta sus
ultimas consecuencias, cuando
la convierte, parad6jicamente,
en un plan a future y en pre-
monici6n de su propia muerte.
En la carta escrita a Juan
Guerrero Ruiz en 1936, co-
mcntando el tragico suceso de
Sije, dice: "Yo cstoy muy dolorido
de habermc conducido injusta-
mente con cl en estos tiempos
(...) Si, hay que hacer un numero
extraordinario de El Gallo Crisis
(...) hay que tributarle el mas
grande homcnaje".
El homenaje no fue otro que la
elegia al amigo "con quien tanto
queria", pero convertida en ur
proyecto de vida. La preposici6n
amorosa de la dedicatoria convo-
ca un future de complicidad para
regresar a la juventud primera,
cuando nacio la revista y hacer,
finalmento, borr6n y cuenta nue-
va. "Volveras a mi huerto y a mi
higuera / por los altos andamios
de las flores", es la proposici6n
mas tenaz que pueda hacersele
a espiritu alguno, sobre todo,
porque lo convierte en clorofila
podtica cuando le promete que
"a las desalentadas amapolas /
dare tu corazon por alimento".
Pero a Miguel Hernandez se
le volvio a pasar la mano como
le ocurrio con Gongora al dedi-
carle su primer libro. No solo
es que se mctio en la voz del
poeta para sellar un pacto de
trasmundo, sino que le bes6 "la
noble calavera" hasta conver-
tirse en hueso de sus huesos y
terminar regresando al barro
primigenio, con el que el poeta
se cambi6 el nombre, aunque
Miguel se Ilame
Ya Rilque habia advertido:
"todo angel es terrible".








Madeline Rivera de frente y perfil


Por Abel Ibarra
Madeline Rivera se mete
todos los dias en mi cuarto
temprano en la mafianita y
me cuenta qu6 va a pasar con
el tiempo. Ella es una especie
de pitonisa del clima y raras
veces falla en sus pron6sticos.
Y si ocurre algun error en sus
predicciones acerca del estado
del tiempo, habria que culpar
mas bien al radar Doppler,
que a sus facultades de adivi-
nadora con un alto average de
aciertos respect de los asun-
tos atmosf6ricos.
De todos modos, sea cual
sea el vaticinio que esta a
punto de hacer, aparece en la
pantalla de mi televisor con
una voz amable que, aunque
llueva, me hace comenzar con
buen pie un dia comfortable.
Madeline es la conduc-
tora del espacio de reports
del tiempo qn Noticias 62, el
segment informative de Uni-
vision, plant televisiva a la
cual lleg6 luego de una larga
y provechosa carrera en los me-
dios de comunicaci6n y de los
studios que la convirtieron en
una professional de los medios
de comunicaci6n.

De perfil
Madeline Rivera naci6 en
Newark, New Jersey, pero a los
cinco afios de edad se mud6 a
Puerto Rico donde creci6 y es-
tudi6. Tiene una Licenciatura

caridad como visitar enfermos
y recoger fondos para los me-
nos afortunados, entire otras
cosas. Durante diciembre de
1999, trabaj6 para recolectar
fondos para el desastre que
ocurri6 en Venezuela, despues
de 20 dias de lluvia ininter-
rumpida, que produjeron una
de las mayores catastrofes
ambientales.
Madeline comenz6 hacien-


do "voice-overs" de comerciales
radiales. Trabaj6 durante dos
anos en una casa produc-
tora de anuncios cantados.
Despu6s trabajo durante 10
afios en diferentes estaciones

como locutora de noticias.
En Orlando trabaj6 en ra-
dio y como fot6grafa.

A Tampa lleg6 en 1997 a
trabajar en La Mega dando
a conocer las condiciones
del transito local. En el 2002
se inici6 en la television,
donde comenzo reportando
las condiciories del trdnsito
y del tiempo, hasta que en
octubre del 2007 empez6 a
Strabajar temporalmente en
la secci6n del tiempo en el
program de noticias de las

media de lo possible y com-
partir una buena cena con sus
familiares y amigos. Cosa que
hizo devotamente como todos
los afios en estas fiestas de
Acci6n de Gracias.


Por Arturo R. Rivera
Como si no fuera poco el
conflict international que el
president de Venezuela, Hugo
Chavez, provoc6 con el Rey de
Espafia, don Juan Carlos de
Borb6n, nuevamente Chivez
hace un pronunciamiento
peligroso para los paises in-
dustriales.
En su acostumbrada presen-
cia mediatica, Chavez utilize la
reuni6n de la Organizaci6n de
los Paises Exportadores de
Petr6leo (OPEP) para amena-
zar a Estados Unidos que si
ataca a Iran o a su pais, "el
precio del petr6leo subira
centenares de d6lares, no s6lo
$100.00".
La reuni6n se llev6 a cabo
en Riad y la misma se inau-
gur6 con la presencia de jefes
de estado y delegados de los
12 paises que mas petr6leo
produce en el mundo. Luego
del rezo del Corin, Chavez se
dirigi6 al pleno de la asamblea
en un discurso donde hablaba
de la paz y del papel'que tiene
la OPEP para lograr justicia
social, y advirti6 que Estados


El-Partido Socialista, que
gobierna en Espafia, y el Par-
tido Popular, el principal de
la oposici6n, anunciaron ayer
parte de lo que seran sus pro-
puestas en la campafia para
las elecciones del 2008: ambos
se refirieron al reciente desen-
cuentro politico con Venezuela.
Asi lo hizo el president del
Gobierno, Jose Luis Rodriguez
Zapatero, quien dijo que las elec-
ciones de marzo pr6ximo seran
"decisivas" para el liderazgo de
Espafa en el inicio del siglo XXI,
cit6 Efe.


Unidos no deberia atacar a
los miembros de la OPEP por
razones de political exterior.

La arenga
"Hoy esta la OPEP de pie, for-
talecida como nunca antes ante
elmundo," dijo Chavez. "Quiero
sugerir que continuemos forta-
leciendo la OPEP por dentro,
pero mas alli, de que la OPEP
se constituya en estos afios
por venir en un active, en
un active agent politico, en
un actor politico, geopolitico,
para exigirle a los paises mas
poderosos de la tierra que ce-
sen las amenazas contra los
paises de la OPEP," exhort6.
Entonces, continue diciendo,
"Porque en todos estos siete
afios ustedes saben cuinto nos
ha tocado resistir en Venezuela,
conspiraciones, golpes de es-
tado, intentos de magnicidio y
la raz6n fundamental de todas
esas agresiones es el petr6leo,
es la raz6n de fondo... Hemos
visto y conocemos la situaci6n
en Irak. Hemos visto y-somos
testigos de las frecuentes
amenazas contra Iran."


Por su part, Mariano Ra-
joy asegur6 que echarA "hasta
siete leaves a la tumba del
sectarismo y de la discordia",
promovida por el Gobierno.
Rodriguez Zapatero repas6
la gesti6n del Gobierno ante
el reciente desencuentro con
Venezuela y consider que
"la prepotencia y la preten-
dida superioridad agudiza
los conflictss, mientras que
el respeto y el dialogo son la
via para arreglarlos.
El lider popular tambi6n se
refiri6 al desencuentro politico


Un serio peligro
Por otro lado, vemos como
una vez mAs Iran provoca
por medio de su program
nuclear, una situaci6n inter-
nacional con los Estados Uni-
dos y los paises occidentales,
asi como Chavez lanza las
amenazas de subir el petr6leo
si Iran es atacado-por los Es-
tados Unidos.
Chavez a su vez intent co-
menzar un program nuclear
en Venezuela con supuestos
prop6sitos pacificos e inst6 a
los paises no industrializados
a la utilizaci6n de la energia
nuclear. Todas estas amena-
zas de Chavez, asi como su
intenci6n de comenzar dicho
program, apuntan a una
situaci6n seria que podria
desencadenar en un conflict
international de grandes pro-
porciones.
Entendemos que la political
exterior americana no deberia
permitir, bajo ningun concep-
to, ningfun program nuclear
en Venezuela. La seguridad
del continent esta en peligro
con Hugo Chavez.


con Venezuela al afirmar
que "no es razonable" que
Espafia se "alinee" con los
"tiranos frente a los disiden-
tes", tanto en Cuba como en
Venezuela, y abog6 por "recu-
perar" el prestigio del pais en
Iberoam6rica.
Rajoy insisti6 que "no es
razonable" que la politica'ex-
terior "este al servicio de un
partido, de una ideologia o de
una ocurrencia" y anadi6 que,

Campaia electoral en Espaina













































































Por Alexis Ortiz
El president de Colombia
Alvaro Uribe, fue reelecto con el
63% de respaldo popular; various
puntos mis que en su primera
elecci6n. Su nivel de popularidad
sigue por encima del 60%.
El crecimiento de la economic
.colombiana es sostenido. Segiun
la encuesta de Latinobarometro,
el 74% de la poblacion de ese pais
cree en la economic de mercado
y la propiedad privada. Experts
de rango planetario, como elvene-
zolano Gerver Torres, aseveran
que Colombia march con
seguridad hacia el desarrollo
integral.
Pero ademas, bajo el recio
liderazgo de Uribe, la antigua
Nueva Granada se ha ido
reencontrando con la paz y
la estabilidad. El narcotrafico
ha sido duramente golpeado y
casi 600 traficantes extradita-


dos a EE.UU. Los homicidios
y secuestros han disminuido
sensiblemente.
Incluso, los asesinatos de
sindicalistas bajaron y crecio
ostensiblemente la protection
official a estos. Fueron desmo-
vilizados 31 mil paramilitares
y recuperados amplios terri-
torios, antes controlados por
la subversion de izquierda y
derecha, ambas aliadas de los
barones de la droga.
Pero a despecho de su
eficacia como estadista, de
sus exitos en los terrenos
de la eqonoriia, la paz y los
derechos humans, a pesar
de su condicion de baluarte
de la democracia continental,
junto a los mandatarios Oscar
Arias, Felipe Calderon, Leonel

Accident fatal
Agentes de la Oficina del
Sheriff del condado de Hills-
borough acudieron al report
de un accident de trafico
ocurrido en la intersecci6n
de Dale Mabry con Handy
Road. El accident ocurri6
cuando un Hyundai del 2007
se dirigia hacia el sur en Dale
Mabry e intent cruzar a la
izquierda para entrar en una
calle privada en el norte de
Handy Road. Un Honda de
1999, que se dirigia hacia
el norte, golpe6 con la parte
frontal del vehiculo al Hyun-

Doris Todd, quien estaba sen-

de Carrolwood, donde mu--

Agentes de la oficina del Sheri-
ffdel condado de Hillsborough
respondieron a una denuncia
hecha por investigadores de
los Servicios de Proteccion a
los ninos, para que asistieran
a un apartamento ubicado en

los oficiales encontraron a dos
adults junto a tres ninos,


viviendo en condiciones que
ellos describieron como as-
querosas. Las alfombras, los
muebles y las camas estaban
en un estado mugriento. No
habia comida en el lugar. El
refrigerator estaba cubierto
de moho y grandes ollas que
contenian un liquid amarillo
con una costra de moho en
la superficie. Sobre la mesa
del comedor habia restos de
tabaco y marihuana y gran
cantidad de papeles dispersos
por el suelo. La cocina tenia

del llamado Polo Patri6tico,

Estados Unidos, amantes del

El que suscribe, Kurt S. Browning, Secretario de Estado del Estado de Florida, por medio del present
notifica que se realizara una elecci6n en cada condado de Florida, el 29 de enero de 2008, para la
ratification o rechazo de una propuesta de revision de la Constituci6n del estado de Florida.

No. 1
REVISION CONSTITUTIONAL
APARTADO VII, ARTICULOS 3, 4, Y 6
APARTADO XII, ARTICULO 27
(Legislativa)
Titulo de la papeleta de votaci6n:
EXENCIONES IMPOSITIVAS A LA PROPIEDAD INMUEBLE; RESTRICCIONES A LAS TASACIONES
IMPOSITIVAS SOBRE INMUEBLES
Resumen de la votacion:
Esta revision propone cambios a las Constituci6n del Estado relatives a los impuestos sobre la propiedad.
Con relacion a los bienes destinados a vivienda familiar, esta revision: (1) incremental la exenci6n sobre
bienes destinados a vivienda familiar con excepci6n de los impuestos para distritos escolares y (2) permit
que los propietarios de bienes destinados a vivienda familiar transfieran hasta $500.000 de sus bdheficios
Save-Our-Homes para su proxima vivienda familiar. Con relaci6n a los bienes no destinados a vivienda
familiar, esta revision (3) proporciona una exencion de $25.000 para bienes muebles tangibles y (4) limit
los incrementos en la tasaci6n para determinados inmuebles no destinados a vivienda familiar con
exception de los impuestos a los distritos escolares.
En mayor detalle, esta revision:
(1) Incrementa la exencion sobre vivienda familiar al eximir el valor de tasaci6n entire $50.000 y
$75.000. Esta exenci6n no se aplica a impuestos de distritos escolares.
(2) Preve la transferencia de los beneficios acumulados Save-Our-Homes. Los propietarios de
viviendas familiares podran transferir su beneficio Save-Our-Homes a una nueva vivienda familiar dentro
de 1 ano y no mas de 2 anos despues de abandonar su anterior vivienda familiar; except en el caso de
que esta revision sea aprobada por los electores en enero de 2008 y si la nueva vivienda familiar se
establece el 1 de enero de 2008, la vivienda familiar anterior se tendra que haber abandonado en 2007. Si
la nueva vivienda familiar tiene un valor just superior al de la anterior, se puede transferir el beneficio, si
la nueva vivienda familiar tiene un valor just inferior, se reducira el monto del beneficio a transferir. El
beneficio transferido no puede superar los $500.000. Esta disposicion se aplica a todos los impuestos.
(3) Autoriza una exenci6n a los impuestos sobre inmuebles de $25:000 del valor tasado de los bienes
muebles tangibles. Esta disposici6n se aplica a todos los impuestos.
(4) Limita los incrementos de tasaci6n respect a determinados bienes inmuebles no destinados a
vivienda familiar hasta un 10 por ciento por afo. La propiedad se tasara al valor just con posterioridad a
una mejora, segun se la define por ley general, y si la ley general lo dispone podra tasarse a valor just
con posterioridad a un cambio de titularidad o de control. Esta restricci6n no se aplica a impuestos sobre
distritos escolares. Esta restricci6n se anula con efecto a partir del 1 de enero de 2019, a menos que se
renueve por el voto de los electores en la election general a celebrarse en el 2018.
Asimismo, esta revision:
a. Rechaza el lenguaje obsolete sobre la exenci6n a viviendas familiares cuando era inferior a $25.000
y no aplicaba uniformidad a los impuestos a la propiedad gravados por todos los gobiernos locales.
b. Dispone la anulacion de exenciones a viviendas familiares si una reform constitutional future
dispone la valuaci6n de viviendas familiares (a un valor menor que el just" en lugar de la disposici6n
actual de "a un porcentaje determinado" del valor just.
c. Establece que los cambios se hagan efectivos con posterioridad a la aprobaci6n por los electores y
que se aplique en forma retroactive al 1 de enero de 2008, si se aprueba en elecci6n especial celebrada el
29 de enero de 2008, o que se haga efectiva el 1 de enero de 2009, si se aprueba por elecci6n general
celebrada en el mes de noviembre de 2008. La restricci6n sobre incrementos anuales en la tasaci6n para
determinados bienes inmuebles se aplicara primero al registro fiscal de 2009 si esta revision se aprueba
en una election especial a celebrarse el 29 de enero de 2008, o se aplicara primero at registro fiscal de
2010 si esta revision se aprueba en una elecci6n general a celebrarse en el mes de noviembre de 2008.

'I NE.


Este es el texto de unprograma de television destinado a
comentar el origen de las palabras que conforman mnestro
idiorma espaliol. Es transmitido todos los jueves a las 11
p.m. por Univision Tampa en el program Noticias 62.
AFRODISIACO
Las palabras tienen una memorial larga y suelen conser-
var la resonancia de los tiempos en que comenzo nuestra
historic, sobre todo de la Grecia Antigua. De alli prov.iene
"Afrodisiaco" y, En Pocas Palabras, vamos a descubrir su
origen y significado.
Los griegos inventaron casi todos los contenidos de nuestra
cultural occidental, incluidos los caracteres psicologicos de
la modernidad que, segun Carlos Gustavo Jung, el conocido
psiquiatra, reproducen las pasiones de los dioses griegos.
Afrodisiaco proviene de Afrodita, la diosa griega del amor,
tambien conocida como Venus, deidad que, a su vez, es el
simbolo de la belleza y la fecundidad con la cual los griegos
fundaron un mundo basado en la busqueda de'la armonia y
el equilibrio estetico. Pero con la vuelta de los afios Afrodita,
una imagen Sagrada, ha derivado en un tdrmino Profano, de-
bido a la avaricia de ciertos mercaderes que viven inventando
afrodisiacos para incentivar la pasi6n y el deseo.

Grandes responsabilidades si
firma una carta de sostenimiento
Pregunta: Me llamo Juan Bermudez, soy originario de Co-
lombia y resident permanent de los EE.UU. durante mas de 15
aios. En todo el tiempo vivido en este pais he conocido much
gente. Tambien tengo un gran numero de familiares tanto mios
como de mi esposa que viven aqui. Hace various dias uno de mis
amigos me ha pedido que si puedo firmarle una carta de sos-
tenimiento (affidavit of support) ya que su esposa le hizo una
petici6n familiar con Inmigraci6n hace much tiempo yya esta
lista su Residencia Permanente, pero como su esposa tiene un
empleo que le paga muy poco, Inmigraci6n le esta requiriendo
un fiador (co-sponsor) para asegurar que el no vaya ser carga
piblica y que tenga alguien que lo respalde. Yo tengo in buen
trabajo y al a hablado conmigo para pedirme el favor'de que
sea su fiador. Le hice varias preguntas que no supo contestar y
uisiera que usted me respondiera esta pregunta. 6Por cufnto
.empo seria responsible si firmo la carta sostenimiento y cual
seria mis responsabilidades?.
Respuesta: Sefior Bermidez, debe saber que si firma la
carta de sostenimiento podria ser responsible por deudas que
su amigo tenga, como cuentas si el Ilega a solicitar medicaid,
cupones de comida, ayuda en de dinero del gobierno o cuentas
medical. El firmar la carta de sostenimiento es una respon-
sabilidad que puede tenerla hasta que el trabaje en Estados
Unidos 10, afos, adquiera su ciudadania americana o uno de
ustedes fallezca.
Recuerde que una vez se legalice su amigo no calificara para
ayuda del gobierno hasta que trabaje 10 afios en el pais o se
haga ciudadano americano. La persona que le puede pedir que
le apoye con la carta de sostenimiento tiene que ser un familiar
cercano, un amigo muy intimo, o posiblemente su empleador si
tiene bastante aprecio hacia usted. No cualquier persona toma
la responsabilidad de firmar la carta de sostenimiento.

SNacer o no nacer?


Por Jos6 Luis Altet
La inmigraci6n es de nuevo
un tema important en un pais
que a veces olvida su historic y
su vocaci6n de caldo de cultivo
para la mezcla de razas, de
religiones y de ideas. Vemos
con asombro c6mo algunos
ciudadanos se organizan en
milicias para arrestar a los
inmigrantes ilegales, como si
se tratase de cazar conejos.
6Se habra puesto a pensar
el ciudadano comiin c6mo es la
vida de un inmigrante? .El in-
migrante es feliz? Claro que las
condiciones de vida en el pais
mas'adelantado del planet
atraen a cualquiera que quiera
vivir mejor que en su propio
pais. Pero esto no conlleva la
felicidad tan important para
cualquier ser human. Es
muy dificil no sentir nostalgia
por los;paisajes, la comida,
los amigos y la familiar que
uno deja atras para buscar
trabajo.aqui. .
Saber que tal vez uno no
volvera a ver a sus padres, a
sus hermanos, a sus'amigos
en much tiempo, porque no
hay regreso sin riesgo, el vivir
clandestinamente, el tener
que aceptar trabajos mal re-
munerados, el arriesgar la

que no contribuyen en nada a
la felicidad. El problema es mas
agudo cuando hay niflos de
por medio. Ningun inmigrante
illegal puede ser feliz; ninguin
ser human puede ser feliz en
estas condiciones.
Sin embargo, la Consti-
tuci6n de Estados Unidos es-
pecifica que entire los derechos
inalienables del ser human se
encuentra la busqueda de la
felicidad. No especifica nacio-
nalidad; sin embargo, las leyes
de este pais si se fundamental
en ella. Los ciudadanos de
nacionalidad estadounidense
pueden buscar su felicidad,
en cambio los inmigrantes
ilegales no. El simple hecho de
haber nacido en un pais u otro
original diferencias extremes. Y
cabe hacerse dos preguntas:
CCual es el grado de decision
que tiene un ser human en
escoger el pais donde va a
nacer?
cEs mas ciudadano el que
ha nacido en el pais, y no
necesita conocer ni la historic
ni la geografia de su patria
ni hablar bien su idioma, o el
que, por un process consciente,
decide hacerse ciudadano y
para ello aprende el idioma y
adquiere los conocimientos re-
queridos y present el examen
de nacionalidad?
Todo es relative. A quien
no ha sido un inmigrante le
es facil analizar el problema
de la inmigraci6n en termi-
nos simplistas, ignorando su
profundo aspect human.
eLos milicianos de la frontera
estarian dispuestos a pagar
el precio que pagan los inmi-
grantes ilegales y a sacrificar
su felicidad a cambio de un
trabajo mal remunerado y el
miedo de ser deportados en
cualquier moment? A quien
hay que tenerle lastima?.-

Por Leonardo Venta
Ambrosio di Bondone, pin-
tor, escultor y arquitecto, mas
conocido en la historic del arte
por Giotto, es considerado el
pintor italiano mas important
del siglo XIV. Su interpretacion
de la figure humana, que de-
sarrollo con lines amplias y
redondeadas, desafi6 la repre-
sentaci6n plana y bidimensional
del estilo g6tico y bizantino,
para crear el espacio tridimen-
sional en la pintura europea.
A Giotto se le reconoce un
estilo temprano, en el que pre-
domina la influencia bizan-
tina (marcada por la cualidad
abstract de los iconos). Seguin
la tradici6n, Giotto fue Ilamado
a Roma en el 1298 por el carde-
nal Stefaneschi para ejecutar
el mosaico conocido como "La
navicelli", que aparece en el
portal de San Pedro.
Es este primer period el
de los pechos hundidos, som-
bras'en el rostro y miradas
con expresi6n de asombro -,
cuando el espacio no Ilegaban
aun a definir bien su obra, ni
los volumenes, ni lo patetico de
su caracter.
Una segunda etapa de Giotto
comienza cuando se le asigna
la decoraci6n de la iglesia de
Asis. El artist represent, por
primera vez, distintas escenas
de la vida del mistico. Los fres-
cos de esta iglesia revelan un

cambio en la perspective del
artifice. La influencia bizan-
tina decrece, para darle paso
a elements como los arboles
y las rocas, creando una icono-
grafia novedosa sobre la figure
de san Francisco, a la cual le
confiere un hondo caracter psi-
col6gico.
En la nave superior de la
iglesia de Asis, ain se con-
templan veintiocho frescos (en
muy buenas condiciones) que
muestran la vida del Santo.
La linea bizantina solo se vis-
lumbra en los pliegues de los
trajes y en ciertos elements
liturgicos. El drama de la series
es representado por un relieve
prodigioso. Esta obra registra
un buen salto en el desarrollo
creative de Giotto. Por primera
vez, en el incipiente siglo XIV
se contemplan frescos audaces
que entremezclan elements
humans divinizados y divini-
dades humanizadas.
La tercera etapa en la obra
de Giotto se consolida en la ca-
pilla de Santa Maria de la Are-
na. Alli, el pintor consuma su
segundo cielo de frescos, 38 en
total, que described la vida de
la Virgen y la pasi6n de Cristo.
Todo acontece en estos fres-
cos con pasmosa serenidad, lo
que rememora la tragedia grie-
ga. "La degollaci6n de los ino-
centes" y "El beso de Judas" son
ejemplos de la representaci6n de


lo trdgico bajo la imperturbabi-
lidad de un placido pincel.
La cuarta,etapa de Giotto
marca su plena madurez con
los frescos de las capillas Bardi
y Peruzzi, en la famosa iglesia
de Santa Cruz de Florencia.
Aqui vuelve a relatar episodios
de la vida de Asis. En la esce-
na de "Las exequias o muerte
de San Francisco", el cadaver
del santo yace rodeado de sus
mas cercanos series, mientras
un grupo de angeles elevan su
alma al cielo.
"Las exequias o muerte de
San Francisco" es un fresco
que refine las cualidades mas
sobresalientes de la obra de
Giotto: la vivacidad y la ingenu-
idad, dentro de la volumetria
y dignidad de las formas indi-
viduales integradas al conjunto
para former un marco monu-
mental.
Hasta Giotto, el arte romanico
y g6tico era mas bien ilustrativo,
de figures plans, desinfladas y
coloristicas. Se ha dicho que el
tratamiento que este artist le
devuelve a la figure humana, es
algo asi como bajado del cielo.
De Giotto, dijo Cennino
Cennini en su celebre El libro
del arte: "... transform el arte
de pintar, de griego en latino,
modernizandole, y realize el
arte mas acabado que nadie
hubiese hecho hasta enton-
ces".

La Boheme al Tampa Bay Performing Art Center: omaggio a Puccini


di Giusy And6
I cieli grigi di una Parigi im-
mersa nel freddo di un inverno
di meta Ottocento fanno da
sfondo alle vite di quattro ar-
tisti bohemien, protagonisti di
uno dei capolavori giovanili di
Giacomo Puccini: La Boheme,
opera in quattro atti su libretto
di Giuseppe Giacosa e Luigi
Illica.
Venerdi 16 e Domenica
18 Novembre, il Tampa Bay
Performing Art Center ha in-
augurato la stagione operistica
2007/2008 proprio con questa
splendid rappresentazione
pucciniana, per omaggiare il
150esimo anniversario della
nascita dell'illustre composi-
tore lucchese.
La storia de La Boheme,
ispirata al romanzo dello scrit-
tore francese Henry Murger
Scenes de la vie de la Boheme,
e imbevuta degli ideali bohe-
mien degli artist francesi di
eta romantic, i quali vivevano
della propria arte e dei propri
sogni, non rinunciando ai
propri ideali filosofici o politics
per nobilta d'animo o per as-
secondare i moti del loro spirit
inquieto.
Nell'opera di Puccini, un
pittore, un poeta, un musicista
e un filosofo vivono la loro
giovinezza gaia e spensierata
nella capital francese, senza
un soldo in tasca ma milionari
nel cuore, grazie alle immortali
virtfi della propria arte. Uno di
essi, il poeta Rodolfo, incontra
per caso la dolce Mimi, un'a
grisette che abita in una sof-
fitta attigua, e si inramora
perdutamente di lei. I1 giovane
la convince a unirsi a lui e
a festeggiare insieme ai suoi


amici la vigilia di Natale in un
bar del quartiere Latino. Qui
il gruppo incontra Musetta,
antica fiamma del pittore Mar-
cello, in compagnia di un ricco
nobiluomo. Da li a poco, e
evidence che la fiamma tra gli
antichi amanti non si e spent
del tutto e, alla fine, i due fi-
niscono col tornare insieme.
Tuttavia, la vita in comune per
le due coppie cosi formatesi si
rivela piu ardua del previsto, e
per di pi la salute cagionevole
di Mimi sembra peggiorare a
causa delle misere condizioni
di vita in cui la giovane si e
venuta a trovare. Non resta
che separarsi, anche se alla
fine il richiamo dell'amore
vince su tutto e Mimi, ormai
in condizioni estremamente
gravi, decide di tornare a casa
e di dare un ultimo dolce e
disperato addio al suo Rodolfo,
spegnendosi a poco a poco tra
le sue braccia.

da manina," indubbiamente
la pit famosa dell'opera. II
freddo si mantiene costante
nel second atto, ambientato
nel caffe parigino, nel terzo, nel
quale c'e addirittura la neve, e
nel quarto, quello conclusive,
in cui il gelo sancisce anche la
fine della vita di Mimi.
Da contraltare a questo
tema vi e il fuoco d'amore dei
protagonisti, appassionato e
turbolento quello di Musetta
e Marcello; piu pacato e forse
piu profondo quello di Ro-
dolfo e Mimi. Fuoco non solo
d'amore ma anche di gelosia
che, frequentemente, sembra
incendiare gli aninrri degli ar-
tisti parigini.
L'opera pucciniana va al
di la della comune morale:
infatti i protagonisti, pur non
essendo sposati, vivono in-
sieme, e questo di per se va al
di la dei consueti canoni della
morale cattolica. Inoltre, la
stessa Mimi, una volta lascia-
tasi con Rodolfo, trova un ricco
nobiluomo che la mantiene, e
quindi l'interesse sembra prev-
alere sui sentiment.
Tuttavia, quando si tratta di
gioire di un'opera, corisidera-
zioni del genere sembrano
essere fuori luogo: La Boheme
e ambientata in Francia e
non in Italia, appartiene ad
un passato lontano, e si ap-
propria di ideali che non sono
propri del Belpaese e che, per
questo, risultano pii accet-
tabili. Agli occhi di uno spet-
tatore modern la trama non
sembra essere trasgressiva, ma
alla fine dell'Ottocento lo era
fortemente, tanto da diventare
simbolo indiscusso di ideali e
di innovazione.
La splendid music di
Puccini, con le sue varianti,
la sua dolcezza, e i suoi temi
ricorrenti, e stata suonata
dall' Opera Tampa Orchestra,
diretta magistralmente dal
maestro Anton Coppola, zio di
Francis Ford Coppola, grande
conduttore d'orchestra, gia
insignito del Lifetime Achieve-

Learn to "Shoot Straight" at New Range


In the past, Hillsborough.
County has lacked in places
with indoor facilities for shoot-
ing enthusiasts to practice
their sport. That is no longer
the case.
Shoot Straight is a new gun
range that serves'this purpose.
It opened in February 2007 at
the corner of Highway 301 and
Martin Luther King Boulevard.
The 23,000-square-foot build-
ing houses a giant collection
of all types of guns. Rifles,
shotguns, pistolsline the walls
providing enormous choices for
the aficionados. High on the
walls that surround the main
store, trophies from all parts
of North America and beyond


look down on the shop and its
shoppers.
Two gunsmiths are pres-
ent on the premises to ensure
the proper functioning of any
weapon and the archery ex-
perts are also on hand to make
suggestions on the purchase
of new equipment and the fine
tuning of the old. But equally
impressive and most appreci-
ated by shooting enthusiast is
the shooting range. Opposite
the entrance of the build-
ing, within double insulated
walls are 18 separate handgun
ranges and three 100-yard rifle
ranges.
In the past, ranges avail--
able in our area were outdoor

Heated the Turkey Gravy


Yankees-Red Sox. Michi-
gan-Ohio State. Coke-Pepsi.
Anniston-Jolie. 'Heated rivals
all, but frankly those feuds are
child's play compared to the
bitter ri-v.alrv that one took
place irntiuall on Th:nksgil -
ing DIa3 in Timpa: Hillsbor-
ough vs. Plant.
Although the two teams
still clash every season, the
Thanksgiving Day tradition
came to an end in 1974. Forty
years ago, however, the Hill-
sborough Terriers and Plant
Panrthers met for the 410[h time
on 'he gridiron T his game'was
e;tr.r specie l he.-au.e it was
held for the first time at the
newly opened Tampa Stadium
on November 23, 1967. A then-
record 16,500 fans dressed in
their Sunday best were there,
making it the most-attended
high school football game in
Tampa's history.
With a 7-3 record, Henry B.
Plant High. School entered the
contest reeling from a defeat
the previous week to King, a 6-0
setback that cost the Panthers
a share of the city and Western
Conference championships.
In addition, the Panthers lost
offensive standout Tommy
Trent to a broken collarbone
suffered during practice. Trent
had scored eight touchdowns
for the Panthers during the
season, and his contributions
would be sorely missed against
Hillsborough High School.
Meanwhile, the Terriers
entered the game with a two-
game losing streak and their
own set of problems. The day
before the game, Hillsborough
Coach Bernie Wilson wrestled
with allowing two Terriers to-
play. Split end Ronnie Rodg-
ers a potential All-America
candidate and defensive
standout Gene Brito had been
suspended from the team for
skipping class without permis-
sion. A unanimous team vote
allowed them to play in the
game, and the Terriers agreed
to obey certain punishment
standards in the future.
The game played out as
defensive struggle. Plant's
stingy defense forced Hillsbor-
ough quarterback Cecil Kent


into three first-half ihtercep-
tions. Chris Anderson provided
Plant's only score of. the game
on a four-yard touchdown run
with 2:46 left in the first quar-
ter for a 7-0 lead.
I Hillsborough's defense,
which allowed 101 yards on
the ground in the first half, rose
to the challenge in the second
half, allowing only five rushing
yards. Trailing by seven near
the end of the third quarter, the
Terriers put together a 56-yard
drive on the back of senior run-
ning back Roger McKinney, who
carried five times for 49 yards
during that series. Cecil Kent
capped the drive with a two-yard
touchdown run and the extra
point tied the score, 7-7.
Late in the fourth quar-
ter, Hillsborough's Don Lynn
blocked a punt by Plant's Gary
Segar, putting the Terriers at
the Panther 44 yard line. Hill-
sborough advanced to the 15
before calling on its star run-
ning back one more time. With
5:48 remaining, McKinney's
25-yard. field goal -- the first
of his career -- sailed over
the crossbar with little room
to spare, giving Hillsborough
a 10-7 lead. His superlative
performance occurred despite
twice leaving the field with leg
cramps. After the game, McK-
inney gave credit to the wind
for assisting on his game-win-
ning kick.
"The wind was blowing from
the right to the left so I kicked
it to the right, and the wind did
the rest," he said.
In his final high school
game, McKinney accounted for
151 total yards and the game-
deciding points. The.senior fin-
ished his Hillsborough career
by running 20 times for 151
yards on the day. The Western
Conference and city scoring
champion in 1967, McKinney
no doubt cherished his records
that year, but as the clock
showed goose eggs that after-
noon, he likely took great pride
in one other achievement.
In three years of high school
football with the Hillsborough
Terriers, he never knew the
sting of defeat against the Plant
Panthers.


facilities. During most of the
year, those who take guns
to the range in order to align
sights and or practice their
skills must endure the terrible
Florida heat. Also, and for valid
safety reasons, while using all
traditional ranges shooters
must wait until the range mas-
ter orders cease fire and the
placement of each weapon in a
secure mode before proceeding
down range to place or change
one's targets on -stands. That
process is enormously time
consuming. Shooting in the old
ranges has in the past been an
aggravating and uncomfortable
process at best. The new Shoot
Straight facility has changed
that old process radically by
bringing comfort, safety and a
reasonable utilization of-time
when shooting.
When shooters arrive at the
Shoot Straight facility they are
greeted by courteous person-
nel. After some form filling,
weapons are checked and
security instructions are re-
viewed. Properly equipped with
eye and ear protection shooters
are then allowed to proceed
through double, sound proofed
doors inside the range.
The shooting ranges at
Shoot Straight consist of in-
dividual cubicles partitioned
with soundproofing materials.


A view of the facilities at Shoot Straight


An ergonomically designed
shooting bench and a chair are
provided within each booth.
Targets are clipped to a car-
riage that can carry the paper
up to 100 yards. An electronic
mechanism provides distance
control for the target place-
ment. Shooters depress a
combination of buttons des-
ignating the desired distance
at which the target will be set
and the target is automatically
set. With another push of a
button the target returns to
the shooter that has never left
the shooting booth. No wait-
ing time between rounds, no
walking 100 yards to the target
zone and no telescopes are
necessary for the process. In
less than one hour this writer
was able to align the sights of
two rifles.
Shoot Straight charges a
$15 fee for the unlimited use
of the range. Multiple weap-
ons and archery tackle can
be taken for practice or sight
alignment. Should a problem
arise with bows, arrows or one


of the firearms the in-house
gunsmiths can provide quick
response to the problem.
Knowing your weapons,
maintaining them in good
working order and practicing
their use can add to the safety
and enjoyment of the sport.
Shoot Straight provides a place
where shooters can accomplish
all their shooting goals safely,
quickly and in comfort.
For more information on
Shoot Straight call (813) 627-
8550.
Have a happy and joyous
Thanksgiving.

Tampa City Council will close
another Tampa road. This time
it's Ward Street and the excuse
is to prevent cut through traffic.
Our council doesn't appear to
understand urban planning. It
continues to vote for projects that
bring more traffic while it closes
roads and refuses to expand the
remaining ones. South Tampa's
volume is only getting worse. Can
someone explain to us how closing
roads helps?

According to the Homeless Edu-
cation Literacy Department of the
Hillsborough County School Dis-
trict, so far this school year it has
identified 1,200 homeless families
with children who attend or try to
attend school. The number will
continue .to climb throughout the
school year as teachers, princi-
pals a. nd bus drivers identify kids
in their charge as homeless. It's
likely to surpass 2,000 by the end
of the school year.
The term homeless includes
those sleeping on the street, in a
shelter, a car or a hotel.

According to Pat Frank's Clerk
of the Circuit Court office, fore-
closure filings in Hillsborough
County in 2i006 number-ed 4,099.
As of October 2007, this year's
foreclosures number an astro-
nomical 7,326, an increase of 79
percent, and the year isn't over
yet. October 2007 had the most
foreclosures in the history of this
county close to 1.200.

His tawdry actions and criminal

Bulls played their last home game
of the season on Saturday, deliv-
ering a whupping to Louisville.
This was a watershed year for
the Bulls no matter where the
rest of the season goes. Their rise
and very brief stay at number two
made the area take notice and will
make Bulls tickets a more valu-
able commodity in future seasons.
Before this year, the best games
drew just over 30,000. Look at
this year's actual attendance for
home games:
Elon 28,306
North Carolina 30,035
West Virginia 61,664
UCF 56,283
Cincinnati 45,172
Louisville 46,846
The total for the season is
268,296, which is 100,871 more
than the next best season.
One noticeable part of the sta-
dium that received no use during
this spectacular season was the
Glazer's luxury.suite. For the
first few games, the box remained
conspicuously dark, which drew
criticism. Some asked why they
didn't donate the box to USF or
to a charity? What a waste of 64
of the best seats in the house.
The Glazers responded by paying
someone to open the windows-of
the suite at the remaining games
and turning on the lights. They
then had the lights turned off near
the end of the games and the win-
dows closed, creating the illusion
that the suite had some activity.
But, at no time did anyone occupy
the- suite. Next season we hope
the Glazers perfect their ruse by
placing cardboard cut outs in the
seats or, even better, maybe they
can invite some local kids from
poor neighborhoods to enjoy great
college football.

The Tampa Sports Authority
(TSA) voted Monday to support
legislation to change the TSA's
board makeup. Currently, the TSA
board has five City of Tampa ap-
pointees, five County Commission

Representative Kevin Ambler and
now supported by the TSA would
give the county control ovet the
TSA with six County Commission
appointees, four City of Tampa
appointees and one governor ap-
pointee. Some members of the
TSA are crying foul, saying the
item was not on the agenda and if
it was properly noticed the results
would have been different. We
agree, since the vote was mostly
divided along the lines of county
and city members and come city
members were absent.

man, Johnny Dean Page, Tony

from the county, voted to support
the legislation, and were joined
by the governor's appointee Mark
Proctor. City Councilwoman Gwen
Miller, TSA Chairwoman Kalyn
Brandewie and Frank DuBose,
all from the city, voted against it.
Vin Marchetti, a county appoin-
tee, also voted against it but he is
currently building a house in the
city and will soon move.
Two city appointees, Al Barnes
and Bob Buckhorn, were absent
but if they had been present the
motion would have likely failed.
The TSA's support of this is a

the last two years.

A few weeks ago the Tampa
City Council sent a letter to Ed
Giunta, who they recently ap-
pointed to serve on the Planning
Commission. The letter asked him
to resign from either the Planning
Commission or the HARTline
Board. The council felt Giunta
misled them into thinking he
would only serve on one board
and wanted to fire him from the
Planning Commission but were
legally unable to do so. Mr. Giunta
has ignored their request.
His critics are not limited to
the City Council. At a Planning
Commission workshop earlier this
month, fellow board members took
him to task for his actions in front
of City Council.
Here is some of the meat from
the meeting's transcript:
Chris Malzone: ... "I was really
disturbed by the fact that you
- falsified your application to City
Council for this position."
Ed Giunta: "In no way was my
application falsified ... The ques-
tion was, the written question, I
answered the question correctly,
I made myself, I appeared before
City Council, I served on HART-
line with Councilman John Ding-


fielder :.. (Did he take speaking
lessons from President Bush?)
Chris Malzone: "I think you
disgraced yourself and I think you
have embarrassed the Planning
Commission, and you've dimin-
ished our effectiveness because of
that... I find that unethical and I
wonder what other questions you
might have falsified on this."
Ed Giunta: "I 100 percent dis-
agree with your opinion. I was in
no way attempting to deceive."
Chris Malzone: "I guess that
we all live by different standards,
a different ethical standard, and
by my standard this is not ac-
ceptable. I think by omitting that
information you falsified your
application to City Council for the
Planning Commission and you
should be disqualified because of
that. That is my opinion."
Terri Cobb: ... we don't want
to leave a perception with the
public that we are anything but
above board ... while [Giunta]
might have been legally OK, it left
the perception that maybe there
was something that wasn't being
answered fully."

The Republican Club at Fish-
Hawk will meet on Tuesday,
November 27 at 6:30 p.m. at the
Fireside Grill at FishHawk Ranch
Square. The speakers will be State
Representative Trey Traviesa
and local party chairman David

THE STORYTELLER

The River's Middling Health


and a Happy Ending


While not nearly as pristine
as three rivers to the south
the Little Manatee, the Mana-
tee and the Alafia the Hill-
sborough River is still one of
Tampa's strongest assets. Not
only does it permit boaters to
glide into the bay, but it also
supports animals including
deer and bobcats in its north-
ern reaches.
The river looks clear now.
SUnfortunately, the reason is
lack of rain. In Tampa, rain-
water hits the ground and
instantly becomes polluted
stormwater. No effective filter-
ing system is in place. As Phil
Compton, chair of Friends of
the River Inc., explains:
"One-third of Tampa's
streets run off into the river
and bay completely unfiltered,
a real problem that Tampa will
be under a lot pf pressure from
the federal government to fix in
the next few years."
He lists two more reasons
for the river's current clarity:
"The temperature has
dropped, and there're fewer
hours of sunlight, resulting in
less chlorophyll growth and
algae. The river.also gets brown
in the late winter when oak
leaves fall in and make it a kind
of tea with tannic acid."
Put December 8 on your
calendar so you'll remember to
enjoy the Friends of the River
annual parade. Beginning at
6 p.m., a flotilla of kayaks, ca-


noes and motorboats will sail
up the Hillsborough River.from
Lowry Park's boat launch past
the Sulphur Springs Tower to
the Harbor Club at Nebraska
Avenue. Expect boats and ho-
meowners' docks to be strung
with lights a glittering spec-
tacle. Think "deck the rails or
even "deck the decks."
Also on a cheery note, in
January we can expect the
start of a complex environmen-
tal restoration project benefit-
ing the river. The problem? The
lower river suffers virtually no
flow for about eight months of
the year. Sometimes that stag-
nant period lasts even longer,
like the spell from October
2006 through August 2007.
Some background: "The
Lower Hillsborough is a tidal
river, which is to say a river where
a freshwater flow gradually
mixes with the incoming tides to
create the most fertile place on
earth the nursery where the
life of the river,, bay and gulf is
born and raised," Compton ex-
plains. "We have not had these
necessary conditions for life for
the past 35 years."
That's because the dam west
of Sulphur Springs choked off
the lower river from healthy
infusions of clean water from
the north.
"This atrocious situation is
what Friends of the River or-
ganized to fight, and had it not
been for us standing up when


and. how we did, the lower
Hillsborough River would have
been forever condemned to be-
ing a paltry shadow of what it
should be."
What can we expect to see?
"Rebirth of all kinds of life,"
Compton says. "More variety
and numbers of fish and the
birds that depend on the life in
the river. It has not been pos-
.sible to plant cypress trees be-
cause the water is too salty for
them most of the year this is
why they have died and contin-
ue to die. Next year, however,
all that changes, when the river
will have a consistent natural
low. salinity .which will finally
give us the natural condition
that cypress and other native
plants can live in."
What will Friends of the
River do then? Having won
the battle, it will not retire.
Compton promises that yvolun-
teers will "start planting native
plants and trees-and teaching
riverfront residents how to do
it themselves."
The flow plan is based on
"five years of extensive scien-
tific research performed by
various agencies and universi-
ties," resulting in a 200-page
report. If you would like to read

SILHOUETTES

by Paul Guzzo


They were in Cuba as rep-
resentatives of the City of
Tampa to showcase the city's
Latin culture and to continue
to build relations between the
city and a nation that is the
birth home to so many Tampa
residents. For
Tampa's Latin G
American Fies-
ta Association's
Royal Court of
1958, it was going
to be one of the
most memorable
experiences of
their lives, and it
was, but perhaps .'
for all. the wrong
reasons. .
"I remember '
the guns," said .'
Georgina "Cook-
ie" Rodante Spo-
to, who was a
23-year-old first
princess in the ..
Royal Court.
Fidel Castro
had taken over I"'-
as president of .:;
.Cuba in January ".
1959. Tampa's
Latin American
Fiesta Associa-
tion's Royal Court
made their an-
nual trip to the
island nation in
February 1959
and remnants
of the recently-
ended Cuban
Revolution were
everywhere. "The histi
"I remember are a symi
being at the Trop- we are kil
icana, the famous
dinner club, and there were
soldiers everywhere in fatigues
and. with rifles," continued
Rodante Spoto. "The men all
looked very threatening. They
didn't bother us or anything,
but you couldn't ignore their
presence. We even went shop-
ping during the day and their
presence was everywhere.
"There were also pictures of,
Shim [Fidel Castro] everywhere.
He hadn't shown his true col-
ors yet and was thought of as
a savior. It didn't turn out that
way, though."
Despite the dark memories
Sof her trip, Rodante Spoto also
has fond memories. She said
Havana was one of the most
beautiful places she'd ever
seen, and the opportunity to
meet with leaders of Cuba, in-
cluding Castro's sister, and tell
them about the City of Tampa
was a priceless experience.
Plus, during future trips to
Mexico and other Latin Ameri-
can countries, the Royal Court
experienced all the highlights
of the Cuban trip without any
of the lowlights.
It was also through the
Royal Court that she met her
first husband, the late-Sam
Rodante.
"He was a Goucho," ex-
plained Rodante Spoto.
"Gouchos were an organization
of young mdn who escorted
the girls. He didn't escort me
on the stage when I became
a princess, but by the end of
my reign he escorted me off
the stage. We were married a
year later.
"Being on the court was a
great experience," concluded
Rodante Spoto.
So great, that a decade later
she took a job as assistant to
the association's director, Leon
Cazin. In 1973, Rodante Spoto
became the association's coor-
dinating director when Cazin
passed away. As coordinator,
she was now planning the trips
around the world for the Royal
Court, as well as planning the
association's events through-


out the year.
One of the Latin American
Association's most popular
endeavors during Rodante
Spoto's time as director was a
yearly event honoring Latinos
who worked hard to preserve


eorgina "Cookie

oric buildings, such as the cigar
bol of Tampa's birth. If we don't s
ling the remnants of our history.

their culture.
"With the help of [the late
USO entertainment director]
.Tony Garcia, we brought in Ce-
sar Romero, Ricardo Montal-
ban, Vicki Carr, Desi Arnez and
Gloria Estefan," said Rodante
Spoto. "The Latin Fiesta was a
big part of my life. It enabled
me to shine a spotlight on an
important part of Tampa's
culture."
Today, though, long removed
from her days with the associa-
tion, Rodante Spoto continues
to shine a light on Tampa's
culture. She is a member of
the Ybor City State Museum
Society Board of Directors,
the Centro Asturiano and Las
Damas del Centro Asturiano,
and works part time for Save
Tampa History, a corporation
founded by her daughter, An-
gela Rodante, and Angela's law
firm partner at Swope, Rodante,
P.A., Dale Swope. Save Tampa
History purchases and restores
historic buildings in Ybor City.
Two of its most famous projects
are the Bunker, which is now
the Tre Amici coffeeshop, and
the Florida Brewing Company,
which now houses the Swope
Rodante Law Firm, as well as
other corporations.
"I help Save Tampa History
with whatever they need," said
Rodante Spoto. "Sometimes
I help with inventory at Tre
Amici, sometimes I make calls
to TECO when they are refur-
bishing a house, sometimes I
go out and buy different things
for them. Whatever they need
me to do I will do. I'm honored
to work with such a great cor-
poration.
"Those buildings prove a
building can be kept historic
and still be used for today's
businesses," said Rodante
Spoto. "I think through the
years we've destroyed pieces of
our history that we shouldn't
have, such as the old court-
house in downtown Tampa.
The historic buildings, such
as the cigar factories, are a
symbol of Tampa's birth. If we


don't save them, we are killing
the remnants of our history."
The history of Ybor City is
something that Rodante Spoto
knows quite a bit about. She
didn't need to be lectured on
it or read about it in books,
though. She lived
IV through some it.
Rodante Spoto
was born Geor-
gina Salazar in
the Trelles Clinic,
which was lo-
cated on Eighth
Avenue and 15th'
Street in Ybor
City. Her moth-
er, Delia Salazar,
was Dr. George
Trelles' assistant
at the clinic and
when Rodante
Spoto was born,
unbeknownst to
her mother, Dr.
Trelles sent her
birth- certificate
S to the state and
named her after
t~. himself Geor-
Sa gina.
"So my mother
and father didn't
get to name me,"
laughed Rodante
Spoto.
Of course,
most people in
Tampa. know
Rodante Spoto
not as Georgina,
but as "Cookie,"
a nickname giv-
factories, en to her by her
save them, great grandfa-
n" their.
"When I was
a baby, whenever he said the
word 'cookie'.to me I would
smile," explained Rodante
Spoto. "The name stuck. Ev-
eryone in Ybor who knew me,
knew me as Cookie."
As a child growing up in
Ybor City, she experienced the
typical Ybor City childhood
-'dances at the social clubs,
movies at the Ritz Theatre,
and shopping up and down
Seventh Avenue. She also has
fond memories of her grandfa-
ther Ramon Sotolongo's buck-
eye (small cigar factory) and
watching him hand roll cigars
for hours on end.
"I feel badly form grand-
children because they'll never
get to experience life like that,"
she said. "We slept with our
windows and doors open. No
one had television, so everyone
would sit on their porches and
listen to the radio and converge
in the middle of the street-
to discuss the big events. I'll
never forget when FDR died
and everyone in the neighbor-
hood was in the street talking
about the president.".
Of course, she said Ybor
City wasn't perfect. Rodante
Spoto also remembers waking
up in the morning and hearing
that gunshots were fired in
Ybor City the night before.
"There were gangsters run-
ning around," she said. "People
used to ask me if I was scared
living in Ybor. I was never
scared. If you weren't involved
in their business you had noth-
ing to be afraid of. There were
too many good people in Ybor
for us to be afraid of the few
bad people."
One of the good people was
her father, Louis Salazar, who
owned D&L Appliance Store on
Seventh Avenue. His big heart
ended up putting himself out
of business, as he often sold
his wares on credit to those
who did not have enough cash
and would never have enough
money to pay him back.
"He just wanted to help
people. Both my parents were


gentle, loving people," said
Rodante Spoto. In later years,
she said he would work in
the shipyards and for Sacred
Heart Church. Her mother
later worked for Central Bank
of Tampa and was also the
Tampa Latin American Fiesta
Association's first secretary,
the job that Rodante Spoto
would one day hold.
When Rodante Spoto left the
Latin American Fiesta Associa-
tion in 1988 after a 20-year ca-
reer, she went on to work with
the American Red Cross until
2001. Besides working for such
a civic-minded organization,
she also volunteered much of
her time to good causes, spe-
cifically Sacred Heart Academy
and Tampa with the PTA and
as a homeroom mother for her
three children, Gena, Angela
and Sammy.
The patriarch of the Ron-
date family, her husband Sam
Rodante, passed away in 1993.
Six years later, she married
Paul Spoto, who passed away


January 2007.
"I am lucky to have fond
memories of marriages to two
wonderful men," said Rodante
Spoto. "And to have three
wonderful children ... and
I consider myself especially
lucky to get to work with my
daughter [Angela] in Ybor City.
I am proud that my life has
come full circle and that my
daughter has the same love
for preserving Ybor's history
as I do.
"Ybor will never be the
same, but I think that people
who used to live here, they're
the ones who should come
back and volunteer here for
the many organization we have
here and help save our culture.
I think that with the renovation
of homes and the new condos
that are being built, :I think
that Ybor has a chance. not
to be what if was, but to be a
vital part of our community.
Ybor is the gem of Tampa and
no matter what, it will always
be in the spotlight."

The Revolutionary War Through the Eyes of a 9-Year-Old Ferdie Pacheco


By Ferdie Pacheco
It seems to me the Revolu-
tionary War, which gave birth
.to the country, has been wildly
overlooked by our history
books and writers. Why?
I am now in the ninth grade
and I hope to be a history
major. I love the history of the
country. I got caught up in Civil
War history because I decided
to read the novel "Gone with
the Wind," which I think is the
best history book I ever read.
The trouble is that the writing
is so good it recruited me as a
dyed in the wool Confederate
for life. I tried to read "Recol-
lections of War" by Gen. Grant.
Phooey. A Yankee! I hated him
so much, I put it down and
tried to read my way through
the four volumes of Robert E.
Lee by Freeman. I loved it but
it was too long. I figured I'd die
before I could finish it. Still,.
great stuff.
This year my teacher, Mrs.
Stuart, a direct descendant
of the great Southern Calvary
leader, Jeb Stuart, couldn't
wait to see what I was going to
write for this year's work. My
last one, "A Fifth Grader's View
of Civil War," from the view of
a young.Confederate won all
kinds of prizes.
"I'm going to write a 'Sixth


Grader's View of the Revolu-
tionary War,"' I said, my arms
across my chest, taking my
defiant stance in front of her.
As expected, her face
dropped, her fluttering hands
came up to her vaguely rouged
lips. "Oh, dear," escaped her
lips before she could compose
herself.
"The Revolutionary War is
kind of ... vague. I mean, all
last year you wrote exciting
papers about the Civil War.
The Revolutionary War was
dull, and rather inactive. It
lasted eight years principally
because the opposing armies
could never find each other in
order to do battle. Then, the
old muskets were so inaccu-
rate, they estimated it would
take 100 shots to hit a man
across an open field. In the
Civil War, 20,000 men fell in
one day at Frederiksberg or
Picket's Charge. I mean, you
can't compare the two."
"Yes, and that very attitude
makes me very mad. If teach-
ers and text books all demean
that valiant struggle in that
sad way, how can you instill
patriotism in a young heart?
Did the British just give us this
nation? Or did we take it?"
"Remember, it was no mean
task, to wrestle a series of

profitable colonies from the
mother country, the most
powerful country in the world,
with the biggest fleet and the
toughest Red-Coated Army.
How did a bunch of farmers
with inadequate arms face the
British Army and beat them?"
I asked.
"Are you going to teach us
about how we shook free of
British domination?"
I got excited and was red
faced and kind of shouting.
"I confess, no. I find it hard
to teach. It's not exciting. It's
a long dull struggle that just
petered out and the British
quit." -
"Miss Stuart, with your.
permission, I'm going to read
every book in the library. Then
I'm going to write a schoolboy's
view of the war that gave birth
to a great new nation. Do I have
your permission?"
"Why, yes. But don't get
your hopes too high. We really
had not been a big profitable
colony for long. Not yet 100
years old. We were a series of
colonized establishments, each
with its own identity, basically
known by what it produced.
The South produced cotton,
sugar, rum and tobacco. It
was a rich conglomerate of
agricultural colonies. Up North
in New. England they fished
mainly and became a manu-
facturing area. The Mountains
produced coal and steel. The
North became the manufactur-
ing center. Seventy years after
we became a county we had a
civil war. The North won be-
cause they could manufacture
canons, rifles and all types of
armaments. The South had
none of that here. They died
firing cotton balls."
And this is where my essay
comes in ...
The one unifying bond was
a common language, English,
and an allegiance to the King
of England. As long as the
Redcoats didn't bother us
with their troubles in Europe,
and left us in happy peace, we
caused no harm.
But then again, the British
were known to be a greedy
race. They couldn't keep their
hands off our gold. They de-
vised a system called Taxa-
tion. Predictably, the Colonists
rose in a howl. Their battle cry
became, "No taxation without
representation!"
It made sense on the Bos-
ton Common, but made no
sense in the House of Lords
in London. Obstinate because
their military might attempt
to enforce taxation by military
strength, the British tried to
ram it down our throats.
One night the English were
bringing in ships loaded with
tea all the way from India,
and the Americans, dressed
as Indians, jumped the ships
and threw all the shipments of
tea overboard. A few men were
killed on the way.
The Boston Tea Party it
was called and it woke up the
Colonies. The British did what
they always did: They sent a
regiment of their best infantry
to track down the perpetrators
of the Boston Tea Party and
planned to execute every one
of them. The Colonists went
down to the City Hall watch-
man, Paul Revere, and told
him to keep a sharp watch for
incoming Redcoats, British
soldiers.
"Aye, one if by land, two if
by sea," Paul said, and climbed
the steeple of the hall.




IA 6ri]


By midnight his sharp eyes
picked out the tall masks of
a big Man-O-War peaking
through the fog.
"It's them! It's the Redcoats!"
He lit his two lamps, saddled
his horse, and headed through
town, yelling for all his lungs
would allow.
"Two if by sea! The British
are coming! The British are
coming!"
This was the first of many
unpleasant surprises the Red-
coats received in the New
World. From that night of
bloody located, at 1600 E.
Eighth Ave. in the Centro Ybor
Complex losses, the British
realized they were going to
have a war on their hands to
subdue the Colonists. This was
actually the startof the Revo-
lution. The start of the War of
Independence.
The Colonists hurried to
Philadelphia to meet to try
to establish a central govern-
ment. It took a lot of politicking
but eventually they formed a
Continental Congress. It was
a mighty body of the best
brains in America with names
like George Washington, Ben
Franklin, Thomas Jefferson,
John Quincy Adams, Robert E
Lee "Lighthorse."
And the hardest thing was
to get such a body of separate,
independent thinking men
to act as one, in the interest
of one. The first years were
tough.
They appointed Col. George
Washington, who had fought
for the British against the
French in the French and
Indian War. He was tough
as nails, a brilliant military
mind, a great motivator, and
a staunch patriot. He had no
trouble finding men to serve
in his Colonial Army, but they
were never more than a ragtag
militia, without proper uni-
forms or armor. Canons were
hard to find, so they fought and
ran. The British could never
catch them. Their casualties
mounted. In London, tempers
were getting short.
The Colonists sent over
their best weapon Benjamin
Franklin. A quaint inventor,
writer, publisher, farmer and
excellent negotiator and dip-
lomat, he charmed the British
ladies, for, although he was a
middle aged, pot bellied Colo-
nist, he wowed the ladies. The
men wanted to shoot him.
Seeking friendlier grounds,
and finding the position of the
English intractable, Benjamin
Franklin opted for a friendlier
shore, France, where he was
welcomed with open arms.
The French were in constant
warfare with England, but the
internal trouble in France was
imbued by the example of the
American Revolution. They
were boiling up a revolution
of their own. They hated Louis
and Mary Antoinette and made
a hero out of Franklin. Skill-
fully, he played both sides of
the fence and in time got .the
French king to come over to
the American side, sending the
French Fleet to bring us the
French Army, and pressured
the Spanish King to loan us
huge sums of money. Here is
an interesting side note:
Spanish gold came in bars
of gold. So they knew it came
from Spain, it was marked by
the letter S. When it got to
America, so that everyone saw
it was "hands off," the Ameri-
cans stamped it with double
lines. Thus, the stamp-$,
meaning Spanish gold for the
U.S. of A. We still use it. Have
you noticed? I wonder if we
ever paid back the Spanish?
The war was long and hard,
a kind of cat and mouse game
when the Americans refused to
stand still and be mowed down
by superior British firepower.
One miserable year we almost
lost the war because our army


had no winter quarters to camp
in. One of the hardest winters
hit the huddled army, and it al-
most evaporated, deserters go-
ing home to defrost. But, not to
worry, the men were patriotic
and very loyal to Washington.
When spring came, the army
came back to Valley Forge. The
worst was over!
Finally,. after a series of I
win, you-lose battles, the Brit-
ish decided to roll the dice at
a place called Yorktown. The
French then beat the British
Navy at Chesapeake the first
defect at sea by a British Fleet
in 300 years. The dice were
tossed.
As General Burgoyne and
Lord Cornwallis gathered their
forces on the plain, he was sur-
prised to see that the French
Fleet had delivered an army of
French and Spanish so he did
some quick math and came up
with the answer that he was
in for a bloody defeat. And so,
with great pomp and circum-
stance, he surrendered his
Red Clad troops, and shipped
them back to England in mild
disgrace: A large army from
the most powerful nation on
earth had been beaten by 13
colonies! Disgraceful!
In 1783 the warring par-
ties met in Paris to sign a
peace treaty, which recognized
the sovereignty of the United
States over territory bounded
by Canada, the Atlantic Shore
and the Gulf of Mexico.
Interesting detail of the
Continental Army formed June
1775, appointed Col. George
Washington as its commander
in chief.
There were never more than
90,000 men under arms at
any time. The greatest num-
ber of men Washington ever
commanded in the field at one
time was 17,000! This could be
attributed to the tactical pref-
erence and because of the lack
of powder for the guns!
The British went out and
bought an army of Prussian
soldiers calledHessians. They
bought 30,000 Hessians, bring-
ing their number of troops to
over 60,000. A solid numerical
superiority.
Washington used slaves
from Rhode Island and Mas-
sachusetts, giving them free-
dom in exchange for military
service. Other all-black units
came from Haiti and other
units of the French Army. At
least 5,000 blacks served in
the Continental Army.
All blacks received was free-
dom from slavery upon end of
the war.
The assemblage of humble
citizens who met in Philadel-
phia produced two astonishing
documents, The Declaration of
Independence and the Consti-
tution, each setting forth the

cornerstone of our government
and defining a government of
the people, by the people, and
for the people.
Thomas Jefferson was the
genius who put it to parchment
and left words engraved in his-
tory to establish our govern-
ment as a unique collection of
individuals.

Jefferson wrote of the un-
alienable rights of men which
would guarantee life, liberty
and (unexpectedly) the pur-
suit of happiness. What a
stunning concept that was!
A government of the people
would guarantee the pursuit
of happiness!
The words, locked together,
spun around the world. It is
still unique in a document
establishing a government.
Pursuit of happiness. Imagine
that. The Constitution remains
the cornerstone of the stron-
gest republic in the history of
the world, and that is why the
history of the Revolutionary
War is so important to teach to
each and every American.
