Mayor Pam Iorio delivered an
early Christmas present to Ybor
City merchants and visitors. She
announced this week that all me-
tered parking spaces in Ybor City
will be free from 11:30 a.m. to 3
p.m., seven days a week, during
the entire month of December.


This move is to encourage more
traffic to help restaurants during
lunchtime and to bring shoppers
to Ybor. The free metered spaces
include all those on the street
and in flat lots like those along
Eighth Avenue. Parking fees will
continue to be collected at the


Ybor parking garages.
*****
We hear Westshore real estate
king and conservative Republican
Al Austin had a two-hour meeting
with Joe Redner. It's our under-
standing that Mr. Austin was con-
cerned that Redner's purchase of
a Westshore hotel property could
result in a nude bar on Wests-
hore Boulevard in the middle of
Austin's real estate empire. Mr.
Redner allayed those fears.

Our hat is off to Judge Monica
Sierra on following her heart and.
volunteering to help deliver hu-
manitarian aide to Palestinians in
refugee camps in Israel. She will


leave on a three-month sabbatical
starting December 27 to work with
Living Bread International to help
administer an expansion of their
aid and relief efforts to 27 refugee
camps. She will be returning her
pay during the sabbatical.
Judge Sierra recognizes that
the suffering and hopelessness in
these camps create an atmosphere
that develops support for terror-
ism. Food, education and hope will
prevent kids from growing up to
become terrorists.

In 1958, Urban Renewal started demolishing or moving houses and
buildings in Ybor City, like the one in this 1958 photograph. Six
hundred and sixty houses were demolished or moved, evicting


1,100 families from their homes. Later, in 1964, more buildings and
home were destroyed or moved to make way for Interstate-4.

Al Pie de la Letra

Por Abel Ibarra


La equivocaci6n de Scott Boras
El celeberrimo agent de Alex Rodriguez se equivoc6 al tratar de
acorralar a los Yanquis de Nueva York con la firma del nuevo con-
trato de A-Rod. La gerencia del equipo de la Gran Manzana no se
amilan6 y Rodriguez tuvo que renegociar directamente con ellos,
con la cual Scott Boras qued6 muy mal parade. Una buena lecci6n
para los que se creen todopoderosos.

La renuncia de Richard Paez
En lo que se consider un acto de soberbia, el t6cnico de la se-
lecci6n national de futbol de Venezuela, renunci6 porque los afi-
cionados abuchearon al equipo y a 6e mismo, en el juego en que
superaron a Bolivia 5-3. La verdad es que Richard Paez ha hecho
un buen trabajo con el equipo national venezolano, pero podria
ser positive para ambos un cambio. Richard podria ser una cabal
opci6n para Jamaica, que no se entendi6 con el serbio Bora Milu-
tinovic, mientras que este seria excelente para el relanzamiento de
la oncena de Venezuela.

Hay chance de derrotar la
reform con la que se nos quiere
imponer un regimen totalitario
en Venezuela. Y, si no lo hu-
biera, bastaria saber que unos
muchachos universitarios (que
podrian ser los hijos de uno), le
han enredado el papagayo al
teniente coronel golpista y es-
tan sacando la cara por el pais,
para apoyarlos saliendo a votar
masivamente por el "No".
Pero el problema es que
tenemos various adversaries
mas perniciosos que el mismo
Chavez, lo cual nos puede con-
ducir a una humillante derrota.
El primero de ellos esti confor-
mado por el grupo variopinto
de los abstencionistas, que sos-
tienen tercamente su majaderia


con distintas razones.

Los conversos
Son aquellos que habiendo
participado activamente en el
chavismo de los comienzos,
ahora hacen 1os discursos
mas encendidos a favor de la
abstenci6n como si estuvieran
tratando de lavarse de culpas.
Recuerdo con nitidez fotogrd-
fica a Oswaldo Alvarez Paz in-
tentando montarse en el carro
del processo", cuando particip6
junto a otros "notables" como
el Dr. Mayz Vallenilla, en la
Comisi6n Constituyente que
planific6 el desmadre al cual
hernos llegado.
Al parecer, lo inico que obtu-
vo Alvarez Paz con su respaldo


fue que le dieran a su hermano
Fernando la presidencia del
Banco Industrial, del cual sali6
con mas pena que gloria. Pero
recientemente escribi6 un arti-
culo rasgindose las vestiduras
para decirnos a los venezolanos
que el no es hip6crita y por eso
se abstenia de votar. La verdad
es que uno no sabe si es hip6cri-

Actualidad de


America Latina




Bolivia
Un cuarto estudiante muri6 en Sucre, capital official de Bo-
livia, y se convirti6 en la cuarta victim fatal de los disturbios
causados por la decision del oficialismo de aprobar, en ausen-
cia de la oposici6n, el proyecto de constituci6n del president
Evo Morales.
Fuentes del Hospital Santa Barbara confirmaron a Efe que
Jose Luis Cardozo, de 19 afios, muri6 de las heridas de bala
en la cabeza que habia recibido el sabado pasado en los dis-
turbios. Los otros dos fallecidos en los disturbios de Sucre
son Gonzalo Duran, abogado de 29 afios, muerto el sabado
de un balazo en el pecho, y el joven carpintero y estudiante
Juan Carlos Serrudo, fallecido el domingo por traumatismo
en el t6rax.
Tambien hay al menos 130 heridos, algunos muy graves,
informaron fuentes de los hospitals de Sucre. Aunque el
president boliviano, Evo Morales, asegur6 el domingo que no
instruy6 el uso de armas de fuego, los canales de television
han mostrado imagenes de policies en Sucre con rev6lveres,
pistolas y metralletas.
Tambien se han transmitido varias agresiones de policies a
reporters y camaras de prensa.

Perui
El 62% de los peruanos consider que las "Casas de ALBA"
(de la Alternativa Bolivariana para los Pueblos de America,
impulsada por Venezuela) que funcionan en el pais buscan
ser medio de infiltraci6n e injerencia en los asuntos interns
del Pern, sefiala una encuesta national difundida ayer. S61o
13% opina que esas "casas" son un proyecto desinteresado
del president Hugo Chavez, a favor de los peruanos mas po-
bres, de acuerdo con el sondeo de la firma Apoyo, realizada
a 1.007 personas de 16 ciudades del pais entire el miercoles
y viernes ultimos. Las Casas de ALBA, promovidas por pe-
ruanos que simpatizan con Chavez, brindan ayuda medica
a gente pobre, pero para diversos sectors su fin es penetrar
ideol6gicamente con fines de desestabilizaci6n. El 49% de los
peruanos opina que el gobierno de Alan Garcia debe cerrar
esas organizaciones, 14% sefiala que debe dejarlas y 13%
opina que debe apoyarlas .Para el 52% de los encuestados,
el Gobierno ademas debe investigar a los funcionarios de los
gobiernos regionales y municipales que abren Casas de ALBA
y procesarlos por colaborar con pais extranjero.

Brasil
El president brasilefio Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva neg6 denun-
cias de la oposici6n de que pretend disputar un tercer man-
dato presidential en el 2010, en una entrevista a O Globo en
la que defiende el aumento del gasto public y las relaciones
de Brasil con el Estado venezolano. "No vamos a mejorar la
salud public sin contratar medicos. No vamos a mejorar la
educaci6n sin contratar profesores", dijo. Asimismo coment6
que "nadie me ha oido hablar de tercer mandate", dijo Lula.
"Creo en la alternancia en el poder. No se de d6nde surgi6 toda
esa historic" sobre un tercer mandate, afirm6 el Presidente,
que fue reelecto en octubre de 2006, cit6 AFP. La legislaci6n
brasilefia no permit el tercer mandate presidential consecu-
tivo, pero la oposici6n teme que el Partido de los Trabajadores
(PT), sin candidate obvio para 2010, intent una reform para
mantener a Lula cuatro afios mds en el poder.


Venezuela
El president Hugo Chavez anunci6 ayer que las relaciones
econ6micas y comerciales con Colombia estan congeladas,
mas no rotas. Tras llamar a su hom61ogo, Alvaro Uribe, "cini-
co y mentiroso", de acusarlo de no dar la cara y solo "sacar
papeles", abog6 por "un mejor y digno mandatario para esa
naci6n. "Lo que he dicho implica senior Vicepresidente (Jorge
Rodriguez), seihores ministros y militares ponernos en alerta.
Lo que he dicho es muy grave, lo s6, pero tenia que decirlo.
Asi que todo el mundo alerta.en relaci6n con Colombia. Las
relaciones econ6micas, las empresas que tienen los colombia-
nos aqui y las nuestras alla, las relacidnes comerciales, todo
eso se va a perjudicar. Es lamentable, pero c6mo se hace",
explic6, para luego subrayar que es un hombre integro y con
dignidad. Seguidamente se refiri6 al incident en el cual el
rey de Espafia, Juan Carlos I, lo mand6 a Callar en la reciente
Cumbre Iberoamericana en Chile: "Hasta que el Rey no se
disculpe yo congelo las relaciones con Espafia.".

La ciudad de Saint Petersburg se convirti6 en centro del mundo politico el
pasado mi6rcoles 28 de noviembre. Los candidates republicans que aspiran
a la presidencia de Estados Unidos se reunieron en el teatro de Mahaffey, en
un debate en vivo preparado por CNN y YouTube. Entre los participants
estuvo Mitt Romney, quien busca reflejar en gran manera el sentir de los
poderosos miembros de la comunidad cubano-americana, asi como Rudolph
W. Giuliani, cuya pasada lucha contra el crime en Nueva York parece no
haber sido tan grande como su rivalidad con Hillary Clinton.


Radicalizaci6n en Puerto Rico


Por Arturo R. Rivera
En los pasados ainos la ad-
ministraci6n del Partido Popu-
lar Democratico y su gober-
nador, Anibal Acevedo Vila,
han recurrido a un mensaje
radical, separatist y con un
tono antiamericano. Lo ante-
rior coincide con los problems
que confront el gobernador
Acevedo Vila con las autori-
dades federales del gobierno de
Estados Unidos.
El gobernador se enfrenta
a una investigation del Gran
Jurado por actos de corrup-
ci6n, de lavado de dinero, y de
violaci6n a las leyes de recau-
daci6n de dinero para campa-
fas electorales. Ante todo esto,
el gobernador y su partido han
escogido el mensaje radical y
antiamericano como estrategia
para enfrentar la investigaci6n
federal.
Uno de los problems que
de cara confront el Partido
Popular en las pr6ximas elec-
ciones es que el aliado tradicio-
nal de ese partido es el sector
empresarial y corporativo, el
cual esta asustado con el giro
de la administration popular y
su alianza con el separatismo
radical.


La investigaci6n
Para enfatizar el choque
entire el gobierno de Puerto
Rico y el gobierno de Estados
Unidos, el Departamento de
Justicia de Puerto Rico inici6
una investigaci6n en contra del
Departamento de Justicia de
Estados Unidos por la muerte
del lider terrorist machetero,
Filiberto Ojeda. Lo anterior
fue -como consecuencia del
operative federal para captu-
rarlo, donde Ojeda fue herido
de muerte y se desangr6. Ese
hecho, indiscutiblemente, cre6
friccion con el gobierno de Es-
tados Unidos.
A su vez, tanto el goberna-
dor como los lideres populares
estan desafiando al gobierno
americano con expresiones de
que no le tienen miedo. Todo
esto ha propiciado un clima
de desestabilizaci6n, lo que
esta creaqdo que el clima de
inversiones se afecte y el sector
empresarial este asustado con
la political del Partido Popu-
lar. Por otro lado, la alianza
"de facto" del Partido Popular
con la minoria radical esta
permitiendo la paralizaci6n
de proyectos de inversion. Por
ejemplo, grupos radicales am-


bientalistas estan obstruyendo
el desarrollo econ6mico con
protests y actos de desobe-
diencia civil, como treparse
en torres de construcci6n e
impedir el progress de proyec-
tos ya comenzados. Este es el
caso del ambientalista radical
que se le conoce como Tito
"Kayak", por su afici6n a esa
embarcaci6n.

Intervencionismo
Todo lo anterior, unido a
la mentalidad del gobierno
popular de intervencionismo
gubernamental en el sector
privado, donde para con-
seguir los permisos de con-
strucci6n y uso para una
empresa puede demorarse
hasta dos afios, paraliza la
economic, como lo esta en
estos moments.
La actitud radical de la ad-
ministraci6n tipo "chavista"
en nada ayuda a la isla, la
cual depend del gobierno de
Estados Unidos para ayudas
federales que ascienden a
unos $20 billones. El mo-
mento es para cambiar de'
rumbo y suspender el tono
radical que en nada ayuda al
desarrollo de la isla.


Al Pie de la Letra

Por Abel Ibarra


(viene de la pagina 1)
ta, pero lo que si estd claro es
que no tiene memorial.
En la misma onda pendula
Herman Escarra, quien en
los comienzos fue uno de los
mas fervientes defensores del
teniente coronel y ahora hace
discursos en contra con identico
fanatismo. Ese invento retorico
de la "Marcha sin Retorno" mas
bien parece un chiste. Y como el
venezolano es un jodedor le re-
sponde con otro. Alguien me dijo
que para que Herman.Escarra
permaneciera en la calle sin
retorno, habia que ponerle atras
un motor home Ileno de comida
para alimentarle los doscientos
kilos que pesa.
La guerrilla mediatica
Patricia Poleo fue una de las
primeras que sali6 a rendirle
pleitesia a Chavez, cuando co-
metio el heroismo de esconderse
en el Museo Historico Militar el
dia de su golpe de estado fallido.
La Poleo escribi6 un articulo en
la revista de su papa en el cual le
manifestaba ardientemente su
adoraci6n y se le ponia a la or-
den para lo que fuera. Ahora es
una abstencionista de ufia en el
rabo, que manifiesta su pepera


con el mismo furor uterino con
el cual antes lo mitificaba.
Junto a ella, un batall6n de
kamikasis ciberneticos atiborra
los espacios de la Internet con
proclamas incendiarias, postu-
lando, entire otras, cosas la ridi-
culez de supuestas "guarimbas"
que s6lo han servido para que
Chavez nos meta el dedo en el
ojo cada vez que quiere acusar-
nos de golpistas.
Estos generals de bragueta
han llegado a un infantilismo
senil como el de Alejandro Pefla
Esclusa que ahora plantea (con
una vocecita que no espanta ni
a una mosca), que la soluci6n es
la "candelita"; como si la pelea
en la que estamos librando
tuviera lugar en la escuela
primaria, donde las disputes
se resolvian jugando a "piedra,
papel o tijera".

Dirigentes dirigidos
Da grima ver c6mo los "diri-
gentes" de Accion Democratica,
del Comando de la Resistencia
y de grupos "independientes" de
toda laya, se suman a ultima
hora a lo que pareciera una
mayoria creciente. Resulta que
las encuestas les dicen que el
"No" esta ganando v, ademas,


el. clamor de sus "dirigidos" los
empuja a tratar de conquistar
la gloria del microfono dando
declaraciones destempladas
para mantenerse en el juego.
Es este, quiza, uno de los
fen6menos que mas alimenta.
el discurso de la "antipolitica"
que llev6 a Chavez al poder y
que ha'ce que empresarios de
los medios de comunicaci6n
(al ver la carreta delante de
los bueycs) se transformen en
una vanguardia arrogante que
les regala algunos mendrugos
de su poder mediatico. Por eso
nadie les cree y los estudiantes
los dcsplazaron en su rol con-
ductor.

El future
Podemos ganar. Este domin-
go voy a votar con la siguiente
conviction: si la abstencion es
menor del 20%, le vamos a dar
una paliza a Chavez. La trampa
tendra que ser masiva y que-
dara definitivamente en cueros,
para continuar el strip tease
que ha venido protagonizando
en las iltimas semanas.
Y a los abstencionistas les
digo como le dijo Juan Carlos
de Borb6n a Chavez: 6Por que
no se callan?.

Uribe: Chavez quiere incendiar el continent


En el mas energico discurso
de cuantos haya formulado'
contra un gobierno extranjero,
el president de Colombia, Al-
varo Uribe Velez, rechaz6 las
fuertes acusaciones que realize
el president de Venezuela, Hugo
Chavez, a quien acus6 de incen-
diar el Continente y de pretender
montar un gobierno de las FARC
en Colombia.
El mandatario revelo que la
senadora Piedad C6rdoba, quien
hasta poco fuera facilitadora
de los acercamientos para
un acuerdo humanitario con
las FARC, habl6 en la carcel de
EEUU con Simon Trinidad, de
establecer un gobierno de tran-
sici6n en Colombia.
Uribe le pidio a Chavez no
incendiar "el continente, al
tiempo que lo acus6 de promoter
un "proyecto expansionista que
no tendrd entrada en Colombia".
Uribe express que la mediaci6n
del president Chavez estaba
mis interesada "en posibilitar
un gobierno con influencia del
terrorism en Colombia, que en


ayudarnos a superar la tragedia
de los secuestrados y conseguir
la paz.


Uribe, que estaba en una
poblaci6n del norte de Colom-
bia, agreg6 que "la verdad con
testigos, es que no se puede
incendiar el continent como
usted lo hace hablando un dia
contra Espafia, al otro dia contra
Estados Unidos, maltratando
un dia a Mexico, al siguiente al
Peru, en la mafiana, despues,
a Bolivia".
Y agrega que "no se puede


maltratar al continent, in-
cendiarlo como usted lo hace,
hablando de imperialismo,
cuando usted, basado en su
presupuesto, quiere montar un
imperio".
Uribe tambien le dijo a Chavez
que cuando no se tienen argu-
mentos y "se apela a lo insults
como usted lo hace, se afectan
no s61o las relaciones interna-
cionales, sino que en este caso,
usted con sus insultos y su falta
de arguments hiere la dignidad
del propio pueblo de Venezuela
que usted representa. Seial6
que Colombia le ha pedido al
mundo y lo seguira haciendo
que le ayude a resolver sus
problems bajo la adverten-
cia de que no estara abierta a
proyectos expansionistas. Su
proyecto no tiene entrada en
Colombia, le dijo Uribe a Chavez.
"No admitimos que se abuse de
nuestra tragedia para darle la
raz6n al terrorism. En Colombia
hay pobreza y limitaciones pero
hay dignidad", seial6 en su duro
pronunciamiento el president.


Los lideres politicos y civicos
opositores de seis de los nueve
departamentos de Bolivia con-
vocaron a una huelga para
mafiana en contra del presi-
dente Evo Morales y la nueva
Constituci6n, aprobada por su
partido el fin de semana.
El president del Comite Civi-
co de la rica region oriental de
Santa Cruz, Branco Marinkovic,
dijo a medios locales que el
"paro sera contundente" en Co-
chabamba, Tarija, Beni, Pando
y en Chuquisaca, cuya capital
es Sucre, explic6 Efe.
"El paro sera en protest
por todo lo ocurrido en Sucre"
desde el viernes pasado, cuan-

Hay al menos 130 heridos,

La Corte Suprema de Justicia
investiga por traici6n a la patria
a la senadora colombiana Pie-
dad C6rdoba, excluida junto al
president venezolano Hugo
Chavez de-la mediaci6n para
un canje de rehenes de la
guerrilla de las FARC, revel6
ayer la legisladora.
"A mi me abri6 la Corte Su-
prema de Justicia, y me lo no-
tificaron el sdbado, una in-
vestigaci6n por concerto para
delinquir y traici6n a la patria",
dijo C6rdoba desde Caracas a
radio Caracol, destac6 Efe.
"Obviamente debo asumir
esta investigaci6n y presentarme
ante la Corte en el moment en
que me citen", agreg6 la congre-
sista, opositora al president
colombiano Alvaro Uribe.
C6rdoba no precis6 si la
investigaci6n esta relacionada
con su labor mediadora ante
las Fuerzas Armadas Revolu-
cionarias de Colombia (FARC)
o se refiere a algun hecho del
pasado.
La senadora y Chavez fueron
separados el miercoles de la
mediaci6n que les encomend6
Uribe el 31 de agosto, debido a
una llamada telef6nica que el
mandatario venezolano realize
al jefe del Ejercito colombiano,
general Mario Montoya, para
hacerle preguntas sobre los
secuestrados.
En el desarrollo de la facilit-
aci6n, C6rdoba fue criticada du-
ramente por sectors del oficial-
ismo colombiano, en particular


por una reuni6n en la clandes-
tinidad con los comandantes
Ivin Marquezy Rodrigo Granda,
designados por las FARC para
negociar el canje de 45 rehenes

Las pruebas
El periodista William Parra,
del canal Telesur, fue acusado
por las autoridades colombianas
de secuestro por entrevistar a
un policia rehen de las FARC.
Parra entrevist6 hace tres
semanas al capitan Guillermo
Sol6rzano, secuestrado desde
el 4 de junio, como parte de un
documental que fue emitido ayer
por el canal regional.
El reporter colombiano le
dio una copia del trabajo a la
senadora C6rdoba, quien viaj6
el sabado a Caracas para en-
tregarsela al president Chavez,
acci6n que fue criticada por el
jefe de la policia colombiana.

Nifios abandonados
gentes de la oficina del Sheri-
del condado de Hillsborough
spondieron a una denuncia


hecha por investigadores de
los Servicios de Protecci6n a
los niios, para que asistieran
a un apartamento ubicado en
el 2004 de Colonial Park Dri-
ve. Cuando llegaron al lugar,
los oficiales encontraron a dos
adults junto a tres niflos,
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
comida podrida por todas par-
tes, sobre todo en el tope y en
el fregadero. Los dos adults
fueron arrestados y los ninos
entregados a otros familiares.

el cual 6ste se desplazaba.
Los investigadores pudie-
ron identificar al sospechoso
como Michael Clemmons y
libraron una orden de arrest.
Posteriormente los detectives
localizaron al individuo en
las cercanias de la calle 14.


Por Alexis Ortiz
El laureado novelist mexi-
cano Fernando Del Paso afirm6
recientemente, que "Chavez es
un payaso que ha hecho much
por su pueblo". La verdad es que
la obra de gobierno del caudillo
venezolano, a pesar de la altisi-
ma disposici6n de poder politico,
military econ6mico, es irrisoria.
Con el si se puede decir que la
montafia pari6 un rat6n.
Con el abultamiento de los
precious del petr6leo, Chdvez
ha manejado mas dinero
que cualquier president en
la historic de Venezuela. Sin
embargo, han crecido expo-
nencialmente la pobreza y el
desabastecimiento; el deficit
de viviendas y el deterioro de
la infraestructura pfblica; el
desempleo y la inflaci6n; y lo
mis lacerante: el problema de
la inseguridad ha llegado a ser


espartoso en la nacion vene-
zolana.
Ese fracaso tan estruendo-
so, Chavez trata de solaparlo
con continues maniobras
distraccionistas, concretadas
en un pugilato perenne para
esconder como los gatos, la
realidad inocultable de su falta
de obra de gobierno.
Entonces pelea con todo el
mundo y hasta ahora eso le
ha funcionado: con el "impe-
rialismo" encarnado en Bush
y Condoleezza; coatra el mexi-
cano Fox, el chileno Lagos,
el peruano Alan Garcia, el
cubano Montaner, el boliviano
Quiroga, los judios, la iglesia
cat6lica y todo el que no lo
celebre a el como la nueva
celebridad revolucionaria.
Pero he aqui que en los
fltimos dias al delirante
Chavez se le vino encima un


aguacero de respuestas con-
tundentes. Lideres conocidos
por su sind6resis como el rey
Juan Carlos, el president Uribe
y la president Bachelet, lo man-
daron a callar, obstinados de su
virulencia. El monarca saudita
lo desluci6 en la reciente Cumbre
de la OPEP. Y, en Venezuela, los
estudiantes, la iglesia, algunos
dirigentes de la oposici6n e.
incluso aliados suyos como el
general Baduel, han puesto al
desnudo su inconsistencia.
Ahora le quedan como padri-
nos los pragmaticos Lula y Kirch-
ner, como.aliados los dictadores-
de Irdn, Bielorrusia y Corea del
Norte; y Fidel Castro, Evo Morales,
Rafael Correa, Ollanta Humala,
L6pez Obriador, Daniel Ortega,
Ignacio Ramonet, Eduardo Ga-
leano, Chomski, y todo el elenco
de fracasados y resentidos que, a
pesar de todo, pulula.

Obispos venezolanos llaman a votar


Luego de reiterar que con-
sideran la propuesta de refor-
ma constitutional impulsada
por el president Hugo Chavez
como "innecesaria, moralmente
inaceptable e inconvenient para
el pais", la Conferencia Episcopal
Venezolana (CEV) hizo ayer un
llamado a todos los venezolanos
para que este domingo acudan
a las urnas a "expresarse libre y
conscientemente".
La exhortaci6n la formula la
presidencia de la asamblea de
obispos, integrada por los pre-
lados de Maracaibo, Coro,. Ca-


racasy Puerto Cabello, monse-
fiores Ubaldo Santana, Roberto
Luckert, Jorge Urosa Savino y
Ram6n Viloria, respectivamente;
en un comunicado publicado a
seis dias del referendo.
La jerarquia de la Iglesia
Cat6lica le advirti6 a los ciu-
dadanos que los 69 cambios
a la Carta Magna "ademas de
restringir muchos derechos hu-
manos civiles, sociales y politicos
consagrados en la Constituci6n,
crean motives de discriminaci6n
political e introduced nuevos
campos de enfrentamiento".

Exportadores colombianos

buscan otros mercados


El gobierno colombiano reco-
mend6 a los exportadores que
comiencen a buscar nuevos
mercados ante la posibilidad
de que la crisis diplomftica con
Venezuela derive en restriccio-
nes comerciales, inform hoy
el diario "El Tiempo" de Bogota,
segfin DPA.
La sugerencia fue hecha
ayer-durante una reunion de
emergencia entire various fun-
cionarios del gobierno y delega-
dos de los principles gremios
de la producci6n, para analizar
las eventuales consecuen-
cias comerciales por el duelo;
verbal entire los president de
Colombia, Alvaro Uribe, y de
Venezuela, Hugo Chavez.
SegCn la version periodisti-
ca, las parties acordaron guar-
dar silencio sobre los temas
tratados, para evitar nuevos
roces con Venezuela; pero
trascendi6 que una de las
recomendaciones del gobierno
fue empezar a buscar nuevos
destinos para los products
colombianos cuyo ingreso al
vecino pais pudiese ser pro-


hibido.
La crisis comenz6 el domingo
pasado, cuando Chavez express
su disgusto por la decision de
Uribe de dar por terminada la
mediaci6ri que realizaba desde
agosto en busca de un acuerdo
humanitario entire el gobierno de
Bogota y la guerrilla de las Fuer-
zas Armadas Revolucionarias de
Colombia (FARC).
"ElTiempo" seial6 que various
de los asistentes a la reunion
expresaron inquietud por la
posibilidad de que el gobierno
venezolano ordene el cierre de
la frontera, como ocurri6 du-
rante un mes a comienzos de
2005 por tensions diplomati-
cas derivadas de la- capture
en.Caracas de uno de los jefes
de las FARC, Rodrigo Granda,
caso que fue considerado en su
moment por Venezuela como
un "secuestro".
Asimismo, algunos exporta-
dores comentaron que una
possible restricci6n de las ex-
portaciones de Bogota perjudi-
caria a los dos paises, porque
los empresarios colombianos


perderian al segundo socio co-
mercial de su pais, despuds de
Estados Unidos, y porque Ven-
ezuela tiene actualmente serious
problems de abastecimiento de
alimentos.
Segun cifras oficiales, entire
enero y agosto de este aio las
exportaciones de Colombia
a Venezuela llegaron a 2.757
millones de d6lares, lo que rep-
resent6 un crecimiento del 76,8
por ciento con respect al mismo
period de 2006. Se preve que
este afio el comercio bilateral
supere los 5.000 millones de
d6lares.
Venezuela puede encontrar
problems para abastecerse de
la carney la leche que le vende
Colombia, pues otros paises
que podrian suplir la oferta,
como Brasil y Uruguay, tienen
copada su capacidad de ex-
portaci6n para 2008, segin
el peri6dico.
En la reunion participaron
los principles dirigentes de
gremios que representan a los
industriales, comerciantes,
agricultores y ganaderos.

Cultura y Turismo
Entre el 12 y 18 de noviem-
bre se celebr6 en la ciudad de
Quito, Ecuador, el Foro Mun-
dial de la Danza con un tema
de bastante interns como es
"La Cultura y el Turismo".
Todas las ponencias se
efectuaron en la sala Demetrio
Aguilera Malta del complejo
cultural quitefno.
Magnos events de la danza
se realizaron en el Teatro Na-
cional de Quito donde a cada
cita asistieron 4.000 personas
por la calidad de los events.
Ademas de las fuerzas vivas
de la ciudad, historiadores,
musicos, antrop6logos, per-
sonalidades conocedoras del
arte escenico de los cinco
continents, tambien se dieron
cita personeros de importantes
organizaciones mundiales :
Consejo Interamericano de la
Danza de Argentina, Mexico,
como el CIAD en Latinoa-
merica y Europa, FONSAL,
CIOFF, Le Conseil de la Danse
UNESCO.
La venezolana Raquel Ache
Leonard, ampliamente conocida
por instituciones latinoameri-
canas y por autoridades de la
UNESCO por su trabajo tesone-
ro por mas de cuatro decadas en
sunativa Venezuelay director
fundadora de American Dance
Theater Ensamble y el teatro
de Marionetas Mufiekache de
Tampa, fue invitada al event
en representaci6n de Estados
Unidos.
"Hilos que mueven la Danza
Folcl6rica de America", fue su
ponencia en la que expuso
su experiencia en relaci6n al
trabajo que como artist le ha


tocado realizar en una comu-
nidad inserta en la sociedad
norteamericana.
En declaraciones en su re-
greso a Estados Unidos, dijo:
"De esta experiencia puedo
citar, primero, el maravilloso
encuentro con amigos de today
una vida, gente hermosa de
este maravilloso mundo del
arte. Segundo, el aprendizaje
que no terminal, el intercam-
bio, la honestidad y humildad
en cada exposici6n donde sin
medir los caminos andados,
los conocimientos adquiridos,
compartidos hablamos un
mismo lenguaje: El lenguaje
del arte y sus posibilidades.
Tuve la oportunidad de estar
inmersa en talleres intere-
santes que probablemente
pondr6 en practice y compar-
tire en esta mi ciudad con mi
gente.

r' aL^.';
Wr-L


Regreso reafirmada en mi
criterio en cuanto a que el
trabajo artistico-cultural no
puede quedarse en la fachada
del moment, ni de la circun-
stancia.
En mi ponencia pude infor-
mar las experiencias que he
tenido en esta maravillosa pro-
fesi6n donde ningun idioma y
condici6n pueden mermar el
espiritu y el crecimiento de los
artists. Tambien imprimi un
mensaje de optimism de fe
en el arte de reinvenci6n. Yo
me he reinventado a traves de
cada una de mis marionetas en
esta tierra que me acogi6 y me
acept6 como una mas de sus
ciudadanas que lucha por el
arte y la paz del mundo.
Las marionetas, cada una en
su expresi6n de danza folclorica
de pueblos, demostraron que el
bailarin no muere, que el artist
no muere; ellas bailaron para el
asombro decadaunodelospresen-
tes con su mensaje de amor. Como
una demostraci6n de que sobre-
vivi gracias a ellas. Recibi dos
reconocimientos por los afios
dedicados a este oficio y por mi
mensaje de paz cuando digo en
miespectaculo que Americanos
somos todos".

En Pocas Palabras I
Abel Ibarra


Este es el texto de unprograma de television destinado a
comentar el origen de las palabras que conforman nuestro
idioma espaFiol. Es transmitido todos los jueves a las 11
p.m. por Univisi6n Tampa en el program Noticias 62.
NEGOCIO
Las palabras tienen una cualidad mimetica, es decir, que
pueden cambiar de apariencia y significado, pero conser-
vando la esencia del idioma original en el que fueron conce-
bidas. Asi ocurre con Negocio y, en Pocas Palabras, vamos a
descubrir su origen.
La sociedad romana de la antiguedad estaba perfecta-
mente estratificada en classes, conformadas por la nobleza,
los equites, los ciudadanos y los esclavos, generalmente
obtenidos como botin de guerra. La nobleza, dedicada al
studio y los asuntos-del Estado, no debia mancharse las
manos con dinero y sus beneficios provenian de la tierra, que
estaba distribuida en latifundios, o sea grandes extensions
de tierra. Los equites, por su parte, se dedicaban al comercio,
la recaudaci6n de impuestos, a los bancos y la construcci6n,
actividades 6stas que eran considerados como el nec otium o
sea el no ocio, lo que con el tiempo y la acumulaci6n de dinero
termin6 convirti6ndose en un jugoso negocio.

p Noticias de Inmigracion
Director dce Inmigrucion de Catholic Charities
Por Jose Fernandez

Nuevos requisitos para
Licencias de manejar
Pregunta: Me llamo Javier L6pez y soy originario de Bolivia.
Como muchos de los inmigrantes en este pais he estado teniendo
complicaciones cada vez que renuevo mi licencia de manejar.
Con todo lo que se ha oido en los ultimos 3 afos sobre el nuevo
cambio con el Departamento de Motores y Vehiculos Ilamado
Identificaci6n Real (Real ID) que require al Departamento de
Motores y Vehiculos de cada estado. Con todo el trabajo que esta-
mos teniendo ahora todos los emigrantes para extender o recibir
la licencia de manejar, una vez el Departamento de Motores y Li-
cencias comience a seguir los nuevos requisitos del Identificacion
Real, sera impossible para algunos de nosotros obtener la licencia
de manejar. Seguin este nuevo reglamento, los departamentos de
licencia de los 50 estados de la uni6n americano tienen hasta
este Mayo 2008 para adaptar los nuevos reglamentos. La fecha
esta ya muy cerca y me estoy preocupando. ZMe podria decir si
ha habido alguin cambio con Identificaci6n Real?.
Respuesta: Sefior L6pez, dejeme decirle que la fecha para
certificarse y adaptar las nuevas reglas bajo la Identificacion
Real, posiblemente se extienda hasta el aflo 2013. Lo que esto
quiere decir es que Departamento de Licencias en los Estados
Unidos tendra hasta el 2013 para certificase y exigir con mis
estrictos requisitos para poder proveer las licencias de manejar a
los solicitantes. Los requisitos principles que el Departamento
de Licencias va a exigir una vez sean certificados por el Gobierno
Federal, seran: requerir a solicitante de licencia que compruebe
su status legal en EE.UU., verificar documents de identidad
y verificar informaci6n de seguro social con el Departamento
del Seguro Social e Inmigraci6n. Tambien bajo la nueva ley, las
nuevas licencias de manejar seran estandarizadas en todos
los estados de la uni6n americana e incluiran foto digital, firma
y barra de c6digo que se podrd leer por mdquinas.
Todos estos nuevos requisitos que el Gobierno Federal va a
implementar es para la seguridad de EE.UU. y en consecuencia,
evitar lo que pas6 el 11 de Septiembre. La raz6n.de la posibilidad
de cambio de fecha de la Identidad Real, es por el costo que se
tomara para poder cumplir con los requisitos federales para
ser certificados y por la oposici6n de agencies que ayudan a los
emigrantes.

Zapatero a reelecci6n en

Espaia


El actual jefe del gobierno
espafiol enumer6 los logros
politicos del PSOE
Madrid.- El president del Go-
bierno espafiol, Jose Luis Rodri-
guez Zapatero, fue proclamado
en un acto cerca de Madrid,
candidate del Partido Socialista
Obrero Espafiol (PSOE) a per-
manecer en el puesto durante
un segundo mandate tras las
elecciones legislativas de marzo
de 2008.
"Con mi aceptaci6n, acepto
un compromise", el de "llevaros
a la victoria a las pr6ximas elec-
ciones legislativas de marzo",
prometi6 un Zapatero euf6rico
en un recinto en la localidad
madrilefia de Fuenlabrada ro-
deado de la plana mayor del
PSOE, e incluso el alcalde de
Bogotd, Luis Eduardo Garz6n,
inform Efe.
"Hay que pelear cada voto
porque no sobra ni un voto: iA
Sg ganar!", llam6 ante miles de


militants el candidate socialist,
de 47 afios, que volverd a enfren-
tarse, como en las elecciones de
marzo de 2004, con el lider del
conservador Partido Popular (PP),
Mariano Rajoy, que se encuentra
en desventaja en los sondeos de
intencion de voto.
El aumento del bienestar
social y el fin del desempleo,
liderar la lucha contra el cambio
climatico y "garantizar una con-
vivencia mejor en Espafia"- pro-
moviendo "la tolerancia y el res-
peto", erradicando la crispaci6n
en la vida political, e integrando a
los inmigrantes- son los tres obje-
tivos de su partido si permanece
en el Gobierno, anunci6.
Asimismo, llam6 a "pasar
pigina" a los atentados del 11 de
marzo de 2004 en various trenes
de Madrid, cuyos autores fueron
condenados recientemente por la
justicia, y a que permanezca en la
sociedad "la memorial y el carifio a
las families" de las victims

Por Maria Villaverde
General de la Guerra de los
Diez Anos y General en Jefe
en la Guerra del 95.
Ensefi6 al guajiro cubano
a presentar batalla con el ma-
chete en alto. En la Historia
de Cuba asoma su nombre
como genio organizador y
estratega military.
Naci6 en Bari, pequefno
pueblo en la provincia de
Peravia en Santo Domingo,
hoy Republica Dominicana,
el 18 de noviembre de 1836.
En 1855, cuando aun era casi
un adolescent, respondi6 al
Ilamado de su patria, que era
invadida por los ejercitos hai-
tianos de Faustine Soulouque,
participando braviamente en
los combates hasta lograrse
la victoria. Cuando las tropas
espanolas fueron derrotadas
en 1865 Gomez se traslad6 a
Cuba con su familiar, donde
se estableci6.
Al conocer del alzamiento de
Carlos Manuel de Cespedes en
1868 se incorpor6 alas huestes
mambisas. Se desempefi6 en
el departamento de Oriente;
lleg6 al grado de Mayor Gen-
eral del Ejercito. Al morir el
Mayor General Ignacio Agra-
monte y Loynaz fue llamado
por el Secretario de Guerra de


la Repiblica de Cuba en Ar-
mas para tomar a su mando
las tropas de Camagaey. Alli
tom6 en sus manos la extraor-
dinaria y temible caballeria

1















mambisa que legara Agra-
monte, reforzando la discip-
lina de la infanteria. Tuvo bajo
su mando al primero capitan,
y que luego legaria a Briga-
dier General, Henry Reeve,
joven official norteamericano,
conocido entire los patriots
cubanos como "El Inglesito".
Sin embargo, a la Guerra de
los Diez Afos le puso punto
final la Paz del Zanj6n. Cuba
despu6s sufre otra derrota con
la Guerra Chiquita, hasta que


aparece el moment de en-
causar a los mambises en un
ejercito regular, para contri-
buir a realizar la guerrajusta
y necesaria que apuntaba y
organizaba Jose Marti desde
Estados Unidos y que estall6
en Cuba el 24 de febrero de
1895.
Pasando Jose Marti por
Montecristi, Republica Do-
minicana, Maximo G6mez
firm junto a el, el hist6rico
"Manifiesto de Montecristi",
en el cual dejaban expresar su
ideologia de independencia y
de que la guerra no era contra
los espafioles, sino contra las
autoridades coloniales de Es-
pafia en Cuba. Desembarcan
juntos por la parte sur de la
costa oriental; con gran infor-
tunio muere Marti en combat;
pero continue G6mez junto a
los Maceos y un pufiado de
valientes mambises haciendo
realidad los planes trazados
por. el Ap6stol, hasta lograr
que, contienda tras contienda,
ocasiori6 a Espafia perder el
dominio sobre su ultima colo-
nia en America.
SAlrededor de 38,00 mam-
bises habian luchado contra
una tecnica military espafola
de casiun cuarto de mill6n de
soldados.


Espafia y el impasse con Venezuela


El gobierno de Espafia rest
importancia a declaraciones del
president venezolano, Hugo
Chavez, que refirieron a un con-
gelamiento de las relaciores con
el pais europeo y las consider
un incidente verbal" queya esta
zanjado.
La secretaria de Estado para
Latinoamerica, Trinidad Ji-
menez, pidi6 explicaciones al
Gobierno venezolano sobre "el
alcance" de las afirmaciones de
Chavez, que volvi6 a arremeter el
domingo en contra del rey Juan
Carlos I por un choque verbal en
la reciente Cumbre Iberoameri-
cana, destac6 Reuters.

el punto de vista espafol lo

Jim6nez.
"No ha habido ningfin tipo
de alteraci6n de las relaciones
bilaterales y por lo tanto no
hacemos mas comentarios a
dichas declaraciones", agreg6
antes.de reunirse con el em-
bajador venezolano en Madrid,
Alfredo Toro Hardy.
El embajador venezolano en
Madrid, ala salida de la reuni6n
con Jim6nez, dijo que Espafia
y Venezuela tienen "un future

que evidencien las relaciones en
cada momento.


"El future de .las relaciones

Las relaciones diplomdticas

guro Jimenez.
Por otra parte, el lider de la
oposici6n conservadora espa-
fiola, Mariano Rajoy, president
del Partido Popular (PP), reiter6
su "pleno apoyo" y el de su par-
tido al rey Juan Carlos I, tras el
anuncio de Chdvez de que con-
gela las relaciones con Espana
hasta que el monarca le pida
disculpas.

cia del fidanzato, fu sottoposta
a diverse torture: cbndotta in
un lupanare, trascinata da
una coppia di buoi, cosparsa
di pece bollente, posta sulla
brace ardente. Per sfuggire al
carnefice si'strappo gli occhi.
Solo dopo questi tremendi
tormenti cadde sfinita e mori.
Le sue ossa non si trovano a
Siracusa in quanto, come pare,
trafugate dai bizantini, Furono
portate a Costantinopoli, da
dove furono saccheggiate dai
Veneziani.
L'iconografia risente forte-
mente dell'episodio dello strap-
po volontario degli occhi in
quanto la santa i raffigurata
con una' tazza in mano su cui
sono posti gli occhi. Altri at-
tributi possono essere una
spada oppure anche una tazza
da cui esce una fiamma. A
Siracusa le stampe popo-
lari riproducono la santa su
un fercolo d'argento, con un
mazzo di spighe in mano, la
tazza con gli occhi e un pug-
nale conficcato in gola. La
sua festa cade il 13 dicembre.
Prima dell'introduzione del cal-
endario modern (1580) si cel-
ebrava il 21 dicembre il giorno
del solstizio invernale, da cui


il detto "S. Lucia il giorno piui
corto che ci sia".
La festa e caratterizzata da
pratiche devozionali di tipo
.magico-esorcistico e solare-
agrario. Si confezionano in
questo giorno pani a forma di
occhi che, benedetti, si man-
giano con lo scopo di preser-
varsi da malattie oculari. A
lei si offrono anche ex voto
d'argento a forma di occhi, che
vengono appesi sulla "vara" il
giorno della festa. I fuochi ac-
cesi la vigilia della festa sono
l'indicazione piti evidence che ci
troviamo in presenza di ritual
Festivi legati al trapasso stagio-
nale piu delicate dell'anno, col
progressive scemare della luce,
per cui occorre esorcizzare, il
pericolo del non ritorno della
luce. La Santa e stata piui volte
messa in relazione con la dea
greca Demetra o con la romana
Cerere, i cui attributi principal
erano il mazzo di spighe e la
fiaccola.
I fedeli recano come offerta
frumento bollito, cibo cerimo-
niale che veniva consumato
anche nei misteri -della dea
greca. "Luce degli occhi, della
vista", "luce del mondo", "luce
cosmica": le espressioni rivela-

Society of Geriatric Oncology
Martine Extermann, M.D., Ph.D., of the
Senior Adult Oncology program at Moffitt
Cancer Center, has been elected president of
the International Society of Geriatric Oncol-
ogy (SIOG) for the fall 2008 2010 term.
The multidisciplinary society serves ge-

mental in training junior geriatric oncologists,
who often are the only ones in the field at
their institutions.
Extermann has been with Moffitt for 12
years.

resigned from the Hillsborough
Area Regional Transit Author-
ity (HARTline). The City Council
appointed him to the Planning
Commission and later learned
he already sat on another board
(HARTline). The majority felt it was
inappropriate for him to sit on two
boards, so he resigned from one.
We were wrong last week in
writing that he ignored City
Council's letter. By that time he
resigned days earlier but we were
given the wrong information when
we made inquiries to HARTline
and City Council. Our apologies
for the confusion.
Also, Mr. Giunta called to let us
know he felt our coverage of the
issue was unfair. He said the ques-
tion on the city's application only
asked if he served the city on any
other boards, which he truthfully
answered. We agree that the ques-
tion was limited and his answer
was truthful, but perception is
often reality for elected officials.

George Steinbrenner's drive
to win and his head for business
is surpassed only by his kind and
generous heart. We see that kind-
ness every year when he gives to
the children in our community at
the Annual Steinbrenner Family
Children's Holiday Concert. The
Christmas concert introduces in-
ner-city kids to the culture-of the
orchestra and ballet while giving the
performers the thrill of sharing
their talent with the children.
The performance is always
magic and has'become part of our
Christmas tradition.
We thank the Yankees, the
Florida Orchestra, John and Mary
K. Wilson, Randy "Macho Man"
Savage, and Dr. Karla Ledoux-
Coton, a host of others and the
Steinbrenner family for bringing
Christmas joys to the lives of
Tampa's children.

Being a migrant farm worker is
a high paying cushy job if you be-
lieve what you read in the Tampa
Tribune's editorial page: The Trib,
in its infinite wisdom, gave space
to Heather Nedley, president of
the Agriculture Institute, who
wrote "Activists Distort Farming
Reality."
The article reads, "Florida tomato
harvesters earn an average of $12.46
per hour." Well, that's interesting
considering 99 percent of harvest-
ers get paid by the container. Ac-
cording to "harvesters," they get paid
40-45 cents per bucket, which holds
32 pounds of tomatoes.
The Florida Tomato Growers
Exchange spokesperson, Reggie
Brown, who provided the statis-
tics for the article, said the har-
vesters are distorting the truth
and that they get paid 45 cents, 50
cents, up to 60 cents per bucket.
So we will use 45 cents. At that
rate, a harvester would have to
pick 32 lbs of tomatoes, walk over
to a truck, throw the bucket way
over their head into the truck,
and return with the bucket to the
last place they picked, every two
minutes and 10 seconds to make
an average of $12.46 an hour.
The harvesters would have to do
this all day and since $12.46 is
an average, there must be many
harvesters who can operate even
faster than this pace.
We told Mr. Brown of our cal-
culations and our disbelief that


his $12.46 is true. He stuck by
his guns, saying he got the in-
formation from tax returns and
calculated the pay from growers'
payroll records.
Once again, we were surprised
because there are no time clocks in
the field. The farmer can attribute
whatever time they want to the
records and therefore can inflate
a workers hourly pay.
As we read on, the article told of
free housing, gas, electric, water
and garbage pickup, even when
harvesters are not picking toma-
toes. According to the article, the
work is safe and employers are
actively involved in the harvest-
ers' health. The grower paints an
idyllic picture, one that suggests
working in a field is far better
than working for the Tampa Tri-
bune. Hogwash.
The growers want to begrudge
the workers' efforts to get the re-
tailers to pay more for tomatoes,
a penny per pound, so that the
money can be passed down to the
harvester. The growers say the
workers get paid plenty and that
the harvesters' efforts amount to
racketeering. Mr. Brown said even
if a buyer paid a penny per pound
extra that growers would not pass
it on to the harvesters.
Sounds like the growers are
pretty stubborn and want to keep
the harvesters in their place.
What happened to the idyllic
grower-harvester relationship?
What's next for the Trib? Will
they give space to the Aryan Nation
so they can deny the Holocaust?
****
The CNN YouTube Republican
Debate rolled into St. Petersburg
on Wednesday to the delight of lo-
cal political observers and to the
yawns of everyone else. Here are
some of the impressions:
Governor Charlie Crist wel-
comed the group of Republican
presidential candidates, shaking
everyone's hand and embracing
only Senator John McCain.
Mitt Romney and Ron Paul
had the best-organized support-
ers before the event. Romney
overwhelmingly won the straw
poll at Vinoy Park with Paul com-
ing in second. The homeless and
their supporters also showed tre-
mendous organization and made
a visual impact on the politicos
showing up to the event.
The first part of the debate
showed the uglier side of the
Republican presidential lineup.
The candidates viciously attacked
each other and all the questions
dealt with immigration. This is-
sue brings out the nastier, side of
the candidates. We got the feeling
Romney, Rudy Giuliani and Tom
Tancredo would have thrown an
undocumented Mexican under
their campaign bus to prove just
how tough they would be on im-
migration. Romney's aggressive-
ness on the immigration issue and
vitriolic attacks on his opponents
backfired on him. It made him
look mean and petty.
John McCain showed the most
heart on the issue of immigra-
tion, saying he was saddened by
the tone of the debate and, "We
need to sit down as Americans
and recognize these are God's
children as well. And they need
some protection under the law.
And they need some of our love
and compassion.
It was a rare moment in the


first half of the debate of actually
humanizing illegal immigrants.
SOne of the sponsors of the tele-
vised event was coal. Dirty fuel as
a sponsor of a Republican debate
- strange or fitting?
McCain, when asked about the
Republicans' carefree spending of
tax money, said, "We came to power
in 1994 to change government and
government changed us." It was
an honest confession of a party
that talked a good conservative fis-
cal game but failed to deliver and
revealed that it's easy to propose
spending cuts as a minority but
once in the majority it's easier and
more enjoyable to bring home the
bacon.
Fred Thompson was asked
what three programs could be cut
to reduce spending. He refused
to answer the question but kept
mentioning Social Security, Medi-
care and Medicaid. Scary.
All the candidates love farm
subsidies.
One question from a black
child dealt with black on black
crime. He said, "It feels like the Tal-
iban is standing outside." All Rom-
ney could offer was that we need
more moms and dads raising kids,
quoting that 67 percent of black
children are born out of wedlock.
That might help in the future but
offered little hope for improving
that child's situation. We wonder
what Romney is going to do about
getting more black men to marry
more black women.
Thompson said overturning
Roe vs. Wade is his number one
goal. How interesting, considering
this country is in dire financial
straights, the dollar is falling like
a rock and we are in a quagmire
in the Middle East.
Giuliani, as president, would
not sign a law banning all abor-
tions, Romney would.
None of the candidates except
Ron Paul would do anything to
repair America's reputation as an
aggressor in the Muslim world.
Thompson's commercial at-
tacked his opponents and said
nothing about him. Interesting,
considering most observers be-
lieve he has to define himself.
Duncan Hunter's commercial
highlighted that he has built
fences and crosses.
The candidates all professed a
belief in the Bible, with Romney
saying he believed every word in
it. If you watched them attack
each other you'd find it hard to
believe that they ever read the
part about loving thy neighbor.
McCain chided Romney on his
position on torture, saying this is


a defining issue for America. Mc-
Cain believes torture goes against
the ideal of America and that it's
an offense to our American heart
and soul.
Members of the audience
booed a retired general because
he was gay.
Giuliani, Huckabee and Mc-
Cain won.
Romney and Thompson lost.
Huckabee is now leading the
polls in Iowa.

Florida's Manatee Madness


Once again we must turn
somewhere other than the
Times and Tribune to find out
how to prevent the "downlist-
ing" of manatees at a crucial
meeting on Dec. 5. A search
of the newspapers' archives
for the month of November
(up until Nov. 26) showed zero
coverage of the bad thing that
may be about to happen no
coverage of environmentalists
mobilizing to lobby Gov. Crist
and the Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
Some background: On Dec.
5, commissioners are sched-
uled to consider whether to
reclassify manatees from "en-
dangered" to "threatened,"
diluting vital protections for
the sea creature. (Whether to
adopt a manatee management
plan is also on the agenda.)
The commission with boat-
ing and development interests
predictably bellowing might
have carried out the downlist-
ing back in September. But
environmentalists and citizens
who flooded Gov. Crist's inbox
and in-basket prevailed: The
governor urged the commis-
sion to postpone the vote.
Fortunately, just because
our dailies don't deign to cover
the issue doesn't mean a com-
plete news blackout. No won-
der more people, are turning
to the Internet for news that


interests them. From the Palm
Beach Post, you can read
an online letter from Mait-
land's Patrick Rose, whom
the newspaper's editors call
"an aquatic biologist, execu-
tive director of the Save the
Manatee Club and one of the
world's leading experts on the
Florida manatee."
An excerpt:
"The commission openly
declares that manatees, with
less than 2,500 adults, face
a 'very high risk of extinc-
tion,' but want to wait until
a species' risk of extinction is
'imminent' before declaring it
endangered a sure recipe for
future extinctions. The FWC
continues to argue nonsensi-
cally that protections won't
change if manatees are down-
listed. In light of the hundreds
of manatees killed since the
unjustifiable reclassification
process began, this argument
seems disingenuous at best.
At worst, a change in status
at this time could have serious
consequences, such as cuts in
financing for research, rescue
and enforcement programs.
"With mortality continuing
at a brisk pace this year, and
with the manatee's interna-
tional biological status con-
firmed as endangered, it is time
for the commission to fix its
system by adopting one where


all of Florida's most at-risk
species can be fairly reviewed,
classified properly and man-
aged accordingly to sustain
and recover their numbers in
the wild. Please join me and the
more than 20 million Ameri-
cans who already have made
known their objections to this
politically driven subversion of
imperiled species protections
in Florida. For more informa-
tion on manatees and the is-
sues affecting them, visit www.
savethemanatee.org."
Thank you, Patrick Rose,
and thank you, Palm Beach
Post.
In addition, a joint e-mail
from Florida's Sierra Club and
the Save the Manatee group
outlines a course of action in
advance of the Dec. 5 meeting
in Key Largo:
"Please take a few moments
of your time to send an online
letter to Gov. Crist and FWC
Commission Chairman Rodney
Barreto, asking them to reject
the downlisting of the Florida
manatee and fix the state's
flawed classification system.
This will help to ensure that
ALL the state's imperiled spe-
cies including manatees are
correctly classified and receive
the protections they desper-
ately need."

Remembering Ybor City's

Tony "Macaco" Garcia


By Ferdie Pacheco
One of the greatest waiters
in the history of Ybor City died
recently. What a sad day it is
for all of us survivors who sat
at his table to hear him spin
his stories as he brought our
arroz con pollo to our table..
He was a legendary Raconteur
who charmed and delighted
Ybor City citizens and thou-
sands of tourists who came to
the fabulous eateries where he
held forth. In the era when men
came from Spain and Cuba
who were professional waiters,
Macaco stood out as the best.
Today, it is impossible to find a
waiter who wants to be a waiter
for life. Every waiter seems
to be marking time until his
next job, a test pilot, an astro-
naught, or a jockey, anything
BUT a waiter.
Macaco was a waiter. Pe-
riod. He could have owned a
restaurant, managed them, or
done many other jobs involving
selling. But,.Macaco spurned
any job except for waiting
tables. He was a happy man:
he found a way to make a liv-
ing that he loved. Few people in
Ybor City were so lucky.
Soon after the war ended, I
met Macaco. He was working
at the Columbia briefly. The
great restaurant boasted that
they had the best waiters in
town. And they did. Macaco
being the best.
I was going to Spring Hill; I
was just 18. I was mesmerized
by Macaco. I saw him at the
matinee. He was the sharpest
dresser there, and he danced
clearly the best at the matinee.
He danced differently. That,
I found, was because he had
spent time in New York when
he lived at Roseland the Pal-
ladium and Avalon. You had
to be good just'to stay on the
floor. Macaco danced like they
did up north. He was different!.
He was great!
We linked up, both united at
the hip because we had simi-
lar interest: We liked to dress
sharp, dance hard, chase all
the beautiful girls, and mainly
spend the night telling stories,
making each other laugh.
Wherever we went laughter
went with us.
I was always broke, Macaco
always had money, and he did
not mind paying.


Since I was just beginning
my eight-year educational
quest of a medical degree,
Macaco and I had an off and
on friendship. Whenever I was
in town, Macaco and I hung
out. When I wasn't in town he
hung out with my dad, J.B.
Pacheco.
All through this happy pe-
riod I thought he was much
older, a grown man, and I was
just a young immature college
kid. It wasn't until the end of
our lives that I came to real-
ize that Macaco-was only two
years older than I was. That
was a shock!
This was because Maca-
co was much older then he
seemed. He had worked at the
cigar factories. Then the war
came and he went out as a
merchant mariner, where he
stayed for years. He went to
every part of the world. In the
Indian Ocean there was an is-
land, inhabited by thousands
of chattering monkeys. Those
monkeys could talk! So when
they left the island, Macaco's
shipmates decided that Tony
Garcia sounded like the chat-
tering monkeys so they began
calling him Macaco. And it
stuck.
He had traveled the 'world,
and he had worked at.diffe;-
ent jobs, so, when hejd had
enough, he came to settle in
Tampa to do what he did best,
be a waiter.
Is it any wonder I looked up
to him as a much older, wiser,
more experienced man? Shoot,
I thought he was 10 years older
than I was.
Tony kept his life simple.
Although he was a killer with
the ladies, he stuck-', ose to
home, for he ihad sworn to live
with his mother and take care
of her until she died. This he
did, and everyone in Ybor City
admired his dedication to his
mom and sister. He never did
marry. He didn't need to.
Today is a very sad day
for me. My wonderful gang of
friends has been diminished.
Macaco was a bright light in
the Shadows of Ybor City and
West Tampa. He was a rare
man. I honor his memory and
cherish his friendship. Go in
peace, and hold a place for me
by your side so we can laugh
our way through eternity.

SILHOUETTES

by Paul Guzzo


She's more than just anoth-
er Ybor City business owner.
She's an Ybor City bridge.
The eccentric, stylish, hippie
owner of the vintage clothing
store La France, Jill Wax, who
with her graying braids and
youthful eyes and
spirit, is one of
Ybor City's most
unique and rec- ::-
ognizable individ- '':.
uals. Besides the
Ybor City corner-
stones of La Trop-
icana and Colum-
bia restaurants,
she is the longest
current surviv-
ing businessper-
son in Ybor City.
For over three
decades she has
paraded around
her vintage cloth-
ing shop and the rr
streets of Ybor
City, bridging .
each successive
generation to the
next.
She arrived in
the historic dis-
trict in the early i
1970s when the
Kress Department
Store and other
legendary Ybor
City businesses,
known by many
only through old
photos, were still
operating. She
helped usher in "When I fi
the age oftheYbor different 1.
City artists in the people and
1980s, brought and balcony
nightlife back to
Ybor City in the 1990s, and is
thriving in the new shopping
mall style of Ybor City. As each
era of Ybor City has come and
gone, Jill Wax has been there
at the forefront, of change,
tearfully saying goodbye to
the ex-iting businesses while
welcoming the new ones with
a smile and open arms.
"I believe in Ybor City," she
said. "It's real. It's just real. It
isn't a facade like so many oth-
er districts built in this city and
in cities across the country. It's
a real historic district with real
history and a real culture and
flavor to it. Ybor City is unique
in every way."
Despite over 30 years of
Ybor City accolades to her
credit, Jill Wax still wants to
be that bridge. While other
Ybor City business owners
struggle to keep their one busi-
ness afloat in the competitive
and high rent historic district,
Wax will open her second busi-
ness in Ybor City this Friday,
November 30. The new store,
Jezabelle and Her Wandering
Gypsies, will be an extension
of La France, offering vintage
items from the mid-1880s to
1980s- buttons, novelty items,
doilies, crocheted table clothes,
framed photos, jewelry, art
and more. Wax not only chose
to open a second business in
Ybor City, she chose to open it
in a part of Ybor City suffering
through hard times, the part of
Ybor City that receives most of
the bad press.
Jezabelle and Her Wander-
ing Gypsies is located at 1923
E. Seventh Avenue, a portion
of Ybor City that is littered
with empty storefronts and
is perceived by some to be a
dangerous area on Seventh
Avenue because of a few bars
that, though only open a few
hours late at night long after
the daytime stores are closed
for three days a week, seem
to make the front page of the
daily newspapers on almost a
monthly basis because of a few
troublesome patrons.


"We're going to bring it
down," said Wax of the crime
rate in that area of Ybor City.
"We're going to connect the
Centro Ybor area to the Colum-
bia Restaurant area. Is it crazy
to open a store here? I've been

crazy all my life. It's a necessity
to put good businesses into the
empty storefronts on this end
of Seventh Avenue. I have the
opportunity to help Ybor City
and the whole reason I am
in business is to help people
out."
Wax backs up what she
boasts. Through La France,
she helps numerous local
photographers, filmmakers
and theatre groups whenever
they need vintage clothing for
a project. When a charity calls
and needs vintage clothing for
an event, she will gladly assist
them. And, of course, she'll do
anything she can to help im-
prove Ybor City, a community
she fell in love with the moment
she first stepped onto its brick
streets.
Born and raised in Syra-
cuse, New York, Wax, whose
maiden name is Coville, moved
to Tampa in 1972 at the age
of 20 to escape the harsh
winters of upstate New York.
Wax and a friend originally
moved in with her mother in a
trailer near Mac Dill Air Force
Base, but within six months
she was living in an Ybor City
apartment.
"I was 20 and some friends
of mine introduced me to Ybor
City," remembered Wax. "I
loved the crowd I met in Ybor.
They were all artists; my sort
of crowd.
"Ybor was very quiet then,"
remembered Wax. "A lot of the
original stores were still here
and a lot of original residents
were still living here. When I
first came down to Ybor, there
were three different languages
being spoken by all the older
people and people were still
sitting on their porches and
balconies conversing. It had a
lot of flavor."
Wax moved into 1521 E.
Seventh Ave., lived in a tiny
apartment on the second floor
and opened her own clothing
store, Rivendell, on the first
floor. Named for the town
Bilbo Baggins retired to in the


book "The Hobbit," the store
specialized in recycled jeans
and imported clothing made of
natural fabrics.
"I thought I was going to
cater to all the HCC students,"
she said. "But they didn't stay
here in Ybor City.
It wasn't a typical
university-type
- ,--- -atmosphere."
S In order to pay
rent and keep the
store operating
during its ini-
tial years, Wax
waitressed at the
SDon Quixote Res-
taurant, which
was located in
S the first floor of
the Centro Es-
pafiol building.
? Two years af-
i ter opening her
store, though,
she decided she'd
need to change
its genre if it was
to survive.
"I was deter-
*. mined to work
S for myself," said
V'- Wax. "I just need-
Sed a concept."

vor." to focus solely
on the store, and
an Ybor City institution, La
France, was born ... well, actu-
ally, it was reborn.
La France was actually the
name of a shoe store that had
been located in the now 99-
year-old building for 29 years.
The name was still etched in
tile in front of the store, so
Wax decided to adopt it as her
store's new name.
"The tile was there and
it sounded good to me," ex-
plained Wax.
As for vintage clothing,
that was as much a business
decision as it was a style deci-
sion.
"I knew I needed my shop to
remain unique if I was going
to draw customers. Plus with
vintage clothing, I could buy a
dress for a few dollars and sell
it for $10. It's a good way to
pay the rent," said Wax, who
purchases most of her clothing
from the public.
During La France's first few
years the second floor of the
building was in'terrible shape.
Filled with leaks and pigeon
droppings, it was uninhabit-
able. So Wax lived in the first
floor of the building, where the
actual store was located. When
the buildings owners, the
Marcos sisters, passed away,
Wax purchased the building
and refurbished the upstairs,
creating apartment space that
she shared with other strug-
gling artists.
As the old businesses began
to leave Ybor City, more and
more artists moved in.
"It had a real bohemian
flare to it," said Wax. "It was
a very coffee shop, vegan-style
restaurant kind of place. It was
a happy go lucky place and we
had our cool little hippie-dippy
things gong on, but there was
no money to be made. It was
difficult to stay alive in the
retail business."
Rather than sulking over
her floundering business and
moving out of Ybor City, in
the mid-1980s Wax and a few
other artists founded the Ybor


Artists Association or the YAA,
which they pronounced "Yea."
In order to draw business
to Ybor City, the YAA began
hosting regular events, such
as jazz concerts and fashion
shows. Up to 1,000 people
would.filter into Ybor City for
the events and shop at the lo-
cal art stores. To make extra
money, the YAA sold beer. As
word spread throughout the
City of Tampa about the great
parties in Ybor City, business-
men saw an opportunity to
make money off the community
the artists revived.
"We really helped bring a
weekend crowd, so much so
that bars began opening up.
So, it was a good thing and a
bad thing," said Wax.
Once the bars came, other
developers became interested
in Ybor City. The artists were
soon priced out of the historic
district. But Wax and La France
remained. Though, after mar-
rying Herb'Wax in 1983, she
did move her residence from
her Ybor City apartment to
another section of Tampa.
Over the years, while she
continued to shop for vintage
clothing, she often stumbled
upon other vintage items that
she couldn't pass up buying.
La France was a vintage cloth-
ing store, though, with limited
space, so the other vintage
items sat in boxes in her house
attic and in the .space above
La France where she once
lived. When the opportunity to
open a second store that could
sell these items and benefit
Ybor City presented itself, she
jumped at the opportunity.

be part of Ybor City I think

Ybor," said Wax of the furni-
ture superstore slated to open
in Ybor City in 2009. "I'm wait-
ing to see what Centro Ybor is
going to do. I don't see a whole
lot of action there, but it's
wonderful if they're turning it
into business space. It means
more people walking around.
Also, we have a customer base
built now but where is the shoe
repair store, the grocery store
and other shops the neighbor-
hood needs? I keep hearing
they may be coming soon. I
hope so."
Ybor City's future has al-
ways been tough to predict,
though. Will it be a residential
district with tiny shops or a
business district with large
corporations? Will it be a party
district or an arts district? No
one can know for sure. What
is known, though, is that no
matter what road Ybor City
may take, Jill Wax will be along
for the ride, and when a gap
in the road appears up ahead,
she will build the necessary
bridge.
Jezabelle and Her Wander-
ing Gypsies, located at 1923 E.
Seventh Avenue, opens Friday,
December 1. It is open six days
a week from 11 a.m. to 7p.m.
and is closed Wednesdays.

The Lure
A visit to Africa is at the
top of the list of many Ameri-
can sports people. The mere
sound of names such as Cape.
Town, Tanganyika, Zimbabwe,
Namibia and others evoke
tingles of excitement in those
that seek the ultimate outdoor
adventure.
Tampa sportsman E.C.
Smith and wife Carol recently
joined g tour to Africa and
ultimately a safari. They trav-
eled from Tampa to New York
on June19 then on to Dakar in
Senegal on the northwestern
bulge of Africa. They returned
to Tampa on July 6. This was
Smith's second African safari.
A long leap across Africa
on a domestic flight brought
the Tampa adventurers to Jo-
hannesburg, the largest and
most populous city in South
Africa. This is the provincial
capital of Gauteng, the wealthi-
est province in South Africa,
which has the largest.economy
of any metropolitan region in
Sub-Saharan Africa. The city
is one of the 40 largest met-
ropolitan areas in the world.
Johannesburg is the source of
a large-scale gold and diamond
trade due to its location on the
mineral-rich Witwatersrand
range of hills. Johannesburg is
also served by O.R. Tambo In-
ternational Airport, the largest


of the Africa Hunt


and busiest airport in Africa
and a gateway for international
air travel. Festering shanty
towns of enormous proportions
occupied by remnants of the
once proud and noble Bantu
Tribe abound in the outskirst
of the city. -
The Florida voyagers also
traveled to Zimbabwe and Vic-
toria Falls. Long ago, because
of the mist that rises from
the cataracts, natives named
the 250 gallon per minute
jump of the basalt bottomed
Zambezi River "Smoke that
Thunders." On a boat tour
of the mighty Zambezi, the
travelers observed crocodiles,
hippopotamuses and other
abundant wild life that thrive
in the dangerous river.
Cape Town was also on the
Smith's itinerary. Sir Francis
Drake described it as "the
fairest Cape in all the circum-
ference of the world." Situated
at the foot of Table Mountain,
Cape Town is, without doubt,
one of the most beautiful cit-
ies in the world. While there,
E.C. and Carol traveled to the
very tip of The Cape of Good
Hope. There, entertained by
whales and penguins, the
roaming couple witnessed the
confluence of the Atlantic and
the Indian Oceans. Later, the
travelers celebrated Father's


Day at the nearby Stellenzicht
winery.
Also included in the journey
was Kruger National Park with
a stay at Sabi Sabi. The unique
"no shooting" game preserve
lies in the Sabi Sand Game
Reserve. According to their
advertising: "So diverse is its
habitat and wildlife that you
have an excellent chance of
experiencing close encounters
with the "Big 5" (elephant, rhi-
no, buffalo, lion and leopard)
as well as six species of cat;
20 species of antelope, sev-
eral dog-like species including
spotted hyena, Cape hunting
dog, 2 species ofjackal, as well
as a variety of smaller mam-
mals such as genet, squirrel,
mongoose, civet, honey bad-
ger, porcupine and hare. Sabi
Sabi boasts the world's largest
land mammal (elephant), tall-
est (giraffe), fastest (cheetah)
and smallest (dwarf shrew)
and a wondrous array of some
350 bird species. Botanically,
this is a wonderland." Here
the Smiths enjoyed evenings
-observing elephants and other
big game animals at the water
hole. The roar of a lion protect-
ing its kill kept Carol on vigil
most of the night.

(Oncce Upxon a Timnne
by Travis Puterbaugh


When Tampa Welcomed a Buffet Table on Ice


In the days before the St.
Pete Times Forum, the team
played in a glorified barn called
Expo Hall. Before Brad Rich-
ards, there was the original No.
19, Brian Bradley. Before the
team ever won a Stanley Cup,
it played a woman, Manon
Rheaume, in goal during an
exhibition game.
As Archie Bunker would
say, "Those were the days."
Fifteen years ago, the Tampa
Bay Lightning were brand new
and enjoying their status as a
sports novelty in the Bay area.
The National Hockey League
awarded an expansion fran-
chise to the Tampa Bay Hockey
Group led by Hall of Famer
Phil Esposito on December
6, 1990. Less than two years


later, Esposito built a franchise
from the ground up that would
exceed everyone's expectations
during its inaugural season.
When the Lightning arrived
on the scene in the fall of 1992,
the Bay area was a vastly
different place than today.
The Buccaneers still were an
orange-clad punch line, base-
ball fans hoped Vince Naimoli
would relocate the Giants from
San Francisco, and anyone
who predicted the University of
South Florida would someday
field a second-ranked in the
nation football team would
have been a candidate for a
long, relaxing stay in Chat-
tahoochee.

as a buffet table on ice for a
community starved for an ex-
citing and competitive sports
franchise.
From the start, fans of the
Lightning knew to expect the
unexpected, starting with the
Rheaume experiment dur-
ing training camp. Esposito,
always colorful, defended her
presence and said he would
put skates on a horse if he
knew it could stop a puck.
Rheaume won over the fans
and media with her captivating
personality, and then acquitted
herself nicely with a seven-save
performance against the St.
Louis Blues in an exhibition
game, becoming the first wom-
an to play in an NHL game.
The Lightning kept the sur-
prises coming on opening
night, October 7, 1992, against
the defending Campbell Con-
ference champion Chicago
Blackhawks. Despite the pres-
ence of actor Alan Thicke, the
Lightning would experience
few, if any, growing pains on
that night.
Behind four goals by for-
ward Chris Kontos, Tampa
Bay shocked the hockey world
and dazzled the home crowd
by soundly defeating Chicago
7-3. It was one of the most
impressive debuts by any ex-
pansion team in any sport, and
the win proved to be anything
but a fluke during the first two
months of the season.
The Lightning started 9-8-
2, and briefly enjoyed a stay
in first place. From November
3 16, Tampa Bay went on
a season-high six-game un-
beaten streak, wining five and
tying once.
The streak featured one of
the most exciting games of the
season, a 6-5 overtime victory


over the Islanders in New York.
Lightning defenseman Doug
Crossman registered three
goals, including the game-win-
ner, and added three assists.
Crossman's six points that
night remain the single-game
mark for a Tampa Bay defen-
seman.
From the first game, the
Lightning defied the cliches
that accompany expansion
franchises. Unlike many fledg-
ling teams that struggle to
score, the Lightning averaged
nearly four goals per game
through the first 19 games.
Plus, Tampa Bay did not ex-
perience its first shutout until
the 35th game of the season, a
2-0 setback to the New Jersey
Devils on December 18.
The Lightning played excit-
ing hockey, even in defeat. Of
Tampa Bay's first eight losses,
six were by just one goal. In-
stead of being a punching bag
for the NHL, the Lightning,
with their mixture of veter-
ans and young talent, earned
a reputation as one of the
hardest-working teams in the
league. On November 9, the
Lightning earned a standing
ovation after a 5-1 drubbing
of the Rangers. Amazingly, the
game was played in Madison
Square Garden and the ova-
tion was courtesy of a New
York crowd.
During that inaugural sea-
son, fans immediately em-
braced the team's first super-
star, center Brian Bradley. A
castoff from the Toronto Maple
Leafs organization, Bradley
found his calling in Tampa
Bay by tallying 42 goals and
44 assists in 80 games, and led
the team in almost every major
offensive category. Addition-
ally, Bradley earned a selection
to the Campbell Conference
squad for the All-Star game,
as well as team MVP honors at
the end of the season.
Eventually, the rest of the
league caught up to the Light-
ning and the inevitable slumps
and losing streaks followed.
Still, the Lightning provided
Tampa fans with a success-

History Center courtesy
of Phil Esposito*

ful and memorable inaugural
season. The team finished with
23 wins and 53 total points, 14
more than the San Jose Sharks
recorded in their expansion
season of 1991.
Esposito called the Light-
ning's 53 points "incredible"
and who could argue with
his choice of words. The suc-
cess of the 1992-93 Lightning
helped build the strong bond
that exists between the team
and its fans. It began with that
first game against Chicago in
1992, and culminated with the
Lightning's greatest triumph,
the 2004 Stanley Cup victory
over the Calgary Flames.
Travis Puterbaugh, a native
ofLakeland, Fla., earned a com-
munications degree from Loyola
University of New Orleans and
an M.A. in history from the Uni-
versity of South Florida. He is
currently employed as the Col-
lections Manager for the Tampa
Bay History Center, and can

PUBLIC NOTICE OF INTENT TO
ISSUE TITLE V AIR OPERATION
PERMIT REVISION
Environmental Protection Commission of
Hillsborough County
DRAFT Permit No.: 0570123-024-AV
Hess Corporation Tampa Terminal
Hillsborough County
The Environmental Protection Commission
of Hillsborough County (EPC), as delegated
by the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) gives notice of its intent to
issue a Title V Air Operation Permit to Hess
Corporation for the Tampa Terminal located
at 504 N. 19 St., Tampa, Hillsborough Coun-
ty. The applicant's name and address are:
Hess Corporation, 1 Hess Plaza, Wood-


LEGAL ADVERTISEMENT
bridge, NJ 07095 to the attention of Mr.
Peter Haid.
The permitting authority will issue the
PROPOSED Permit, and subsequent FINAL
Permit, in accordance with the conditions of
the DRAFT Permit unless a response re-
ceived in accordance with the following
procedures results in a different decision or
significant change of terms or conditions.
The Permittihg Authority will accept written
comments concerning the DRAFT Permit for
a period of thirty (30) days from the date of
publication of this Public Notice. Written
comments must be post-Marked and all
facsimile comments must be received by the
close of business (5:00 pm), on or before
the end of this 30 day period, by the Per-
mitting Authority at EPC, Air Permitting
Section, 3629 Queen Palm Dr., Tampa,
Florida 33619 or facsimile 813-627-2660. As
part of his or her comments, any person
may also request that the Permitting Author-
ity hold a public meeting on this permitting
action. If the Permitting Authority determines
there is sufficient interest for a public'
meeting, it will publish notice of the time,
date, and location in the Florida Administra-
tive Weekly (http://faw.dos.state.fl.us/) and
in a newspaper of general circulation in the
area affected by the permitting action. For
additional information, contact the Per-
mitting Authority at the above address or
phone number. If written comments or
comments received at a public meeting
result in a significant change to the DRAFT
Permit, the Permitting Authority shall issue a
Revised DRAFT Permit and require, if
applicable, another Public Notice. All
comments filed will be made available for
public inspection.
A person whose substantial interests are
affected by the proposed permitting decision
may petition for an administrative hearing in
accordance with Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes (F.S.). The petition
must contain the information set forth below
and must be filed (received) in the Legal
Department of the EPC at 3629 Queen
Palm Dr., Tampa, Florida 33619, Phone
813-627-2600, Fax 813-627-2660. Petitions
filed by any persons other than those
entitled to written notice under Section
120.60(3), F.S., must be filed within fourteen
days of publication of the public notice or
within fourteen days of receipt of the notice
of intent, whichever occurs first. Under
Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any
person who asked the permitting authority
for notice of agency action may file a
petition within fourteen days of receipt of
that notice, regardless of the date of
publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of
the petition to the applicant at the address
indicated above, at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file a petition within
the applicable time period shall constitute a
waiver of that person's right to request an
administrative determination (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to
intervene in this proceeding and participate
as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention
will be only at the approval of the presiding
officer upon the filing of a motion in
compliance with Rule 28-106.205 of the
Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.).
A petition that disputes the material facts
on which the-permitting authority's action is
based must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency
affected and each agency's file or identifica-
tion number, if known;
(b) The name, address and telephone
number of the petitioner; name address and
telephone number of the petitioner's repre-
sentative, if any, which shall be the address
for service purposes during the course of
the proceeding; and an explanation of how
petitioner's substantial rights will be affected
by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when the
petitioner received notice of the agency
action or proposed action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of
material fact. If there are none, the petition
must so state;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged,- as well as the rules and
statutes which entitle petitioner to relief;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or
statutes the petitioner contends require
reversal or modification of the agency's
proposed action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the
petitioner, stating precisely the action
petitioner wishes the agency to take with
respect to the agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the mate-
rial facts upon which the permitting author-
ity's action is based shall state that no such
facts are in dispute and otherwise shall con-
tain the same information as set forth above,
as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing pro-
cess is designed to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition means that the
permitting authority's final action may be
different from the position taken by it in this
notice of intent. Persons whose substantial
interests will be affected by any such final
decision of the permitting authority on the
application have the right to petition to be-
come a party to the proceeding, in accord-
ance with the requirements set forth above.
Mediation is not available for this proceed-
ing.
In addition to the above, pursuant to 42
United States- Code (U.S.C.) Section
7661d(b)(2), any person may petition the
Administrator of the EPA within 60 (sixty)
days of the expiration of the Administrator's
45 (forty-five) day review period as estab-
lished at 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(l), to
object to issuance of any Title V permit. Any
petition shall be based only on objections to
the Title V permit that were raised with reas-
onable specificity during the 30 (thirty) day
public comment period provided in this no-
tice, unless the petitioner demonstrates to
the Administrator of the EPA that it was im-
practicable to raise such objections within the
comment period or unless the grounds for
such objection arose after the comment pe-
riod. Filing of a petition with the Administrator
of the EPA does not stay the effective date of
any Title V permit properly issued pursuant to
the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C.
Petitions filed with the Administrator of EPA
must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C.
Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be filed with
the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA,
401 M Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20460.
A complete project file is available for
public inspection during normal business
hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday
through Friday, except legal holidays, at:

Tampa, FL 33619
Telephone: (813) 627-2600

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
COMMISSION OF
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY
NOTICE OF INTENT
TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Environmental Protection Commis-
sion of Hillsborough County (EPC), as
delegated by the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP) gives
notice of its intent to issue an air pollution
permit 0571346-001-AC to The Pepsi
Bottling Group, 5555 N. 50th Street,
Tampa, Florida 33610, to perform surface
coating of metal beverage coolers' and
vending machines. This painting operation
will be conducted inside a fully enclosed
paint booth with forced draft ventilation.
The VOC emissions will be controlled by
using low-VOC content'coatings.
MAILING ADDRESS: The Pepsi Bottling
Group, 5555 N. 50th Street, Tampa, Flor-
ida 33610 to the attention of Mr. Jimmie
Chestnut.
A Best Available Control Technology
(BACT) determination was not required.
The EPC will issue the Final permit with
the conditions of-the DRAFT permit unless a
timely petition for an administrative hearing
is filed pursuant to Sections 120.569 and
120.57, F.S. before the deadline for filing a
petition. The procedures for petitoning for
hearing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests are
affected by the proposed permitting decis-
ion may petition for an -administrative pro-
ceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, F.S. The petition must contain
the information set forth below and must be
filed (received) in the Legal Department of
the EPC at 3629 Queen Palm Dr., Tampa,
Florida 33619, Phone 813-627-2600, Fax
813-627-2602. Petitions filed by the permit
applicant or any of the parties listed below
must be filed within 14 (fourteen) days of
receipt of this notice of intent. Petitions filed
by any persons other than those entitled to
written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S.
must be filed within 14 (fourteen) days of
publication of the public notice or within 14
(fourteen) days of receipt of this notice of
intent, whichever occurs first. Under Section
120.60(3), however, any person who asked
the EPC for notice of agency action may file
a petition within 14 (fourteen) days of re-
ceipt of that notice, regardless of the date of
publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of
the petition to the applicant at the address
indicated above, at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file a petition within
the appropriate time period shall constitute a
waiver of that person's right to request an
administrative determination (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to in-
tervene in this proceeding and participate as
a party to it. Any subsequent Intervention will
be only at the approved of the presiding
officer upon the filing of a motion in com-
pliance with Rule 28-106.205 of the F.A.C.
A petition that disputes the material facts
on which the EPC's action is based must
contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency
affected and each agency's file or identifica-
tion number if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner, and the name,
address, and telephone number of each
petitioner's representative, if any, which
shall be the address for service purposes
during the course of the proceedings; and
an explanation of how the petitioner's
substantial interests will be affected by the
agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when peti-
tioner received notice of the EPC action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of
material fact. If there are none, the petition
muit so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, including the specific facts the
petitioner contends warrant reversal or
modification of the EPC proposed action;
(f) A statement of specific rules or statutes
the petitioner contends requires .eversal or
modification of the EPC's proposed action;
and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the
petitioner, stating precisely the action
petitioner wishes the EPC to take with
respect to the EPC's proposed action..
A petition that does not dispute the
material facts upon which the EPC's action
is based shall state that no such facts are in
dispute and otherwise shall contain the
same information as set forth above as
required by Rule 28-106.301.
Because the administrative hearing pro-
cess is designed to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition means that the
EPC's final action may be different from the
position taken by it in this notice of intent.
Persons whose substantial interests will be
affected by any such final decision of the
EPC on the application have the right to
petition to become a party to the proceed-
ing, in accordince with the requirements set
forth above.
Mediation under section 120.573, F.S., is
not available in this proceeding.
This action is final and effective on the
date filed with the Clerk of the EPC unless a
petition is filed in accordance with above.
pon the timely filing of a petition this order
will not be effective until further order of the
EPC.
Any party to this order has the right to seek
judicial review of it under Section 120.68 of
the Florida Statutes, by filing a notice of
appeal under rule 9.110 of the Florida rules of
Appellate Procedure with the EPC's Legal
Office at 3629 Queen Palm Dr., Tampa,

cation, and the information submitted by the

Recordando el 27 de noviembre de 1871


Por Leonardo Venta
Hay acciones tan viles que
enloquecen la brujula del des-
tino; bofetadas tan fuertes que
derriban toda suerte de es-
peranza; siniestros torpedos
que anegan tiernos buques de
amor; torbellinos infemales
que no reposan. Hay fusiles que
lamentan su destiny y lagrimas
inocentes que aguardan su re-
denci6n.
Cada cubano que sienta a
Cuba, en su suelo, o en el do-
lor irremediable de la ausencia,
cada hombre digno que haya
respirado un poco la desnudez
de la isla verde que pernocta
bajo un intruso firmamento
rojo, no debe ignorar, no pu-
ede, que hace 136 anos, un
27 de noviembre, las estrellas
.dejaron de dibujarse por un in-
stante sobre el firmamento para
voltear sus rostros, enmudeci-
dos, y guarecerse en la m6rbida
mueca de la impotencia.
A pocos dias de cumplirse
tres afios de la fecha en que


Carlos Manuel de Cespedes,
conocido en la historic de Cuba
como el Padre de la Patria, lan-
zara "El Grito de Yara" el 10
de octubre de 1868 en el batey
del Ingenio La Demajagua, fue
escrito uno de los mas bochor-
nosos capitulos de la historic
colonial espafiola en la isla,
cuando el ejercito peninsular
fusil6 a ocho estudiantes de
la Universidad de La Habana,.
acusados de profanar la tumba
del periodista espafol Gonzalo
Castafi6n.
La inevitable guerra
contra la dominaci6n peninsu-
lar proseguia su march firme
y redentora. Era un period
en que a manera de represalia

las autoridades colonizadoras
incrementaban sus arbitrarie-
dades y atropellos contra los
pobladores de Cuba.
Los mas funestamente fa-
mosos por su crueldad eran los
Ilamados "Voluntarios de La
Habana", que no pertenecian


al ejercito espafiol regular,
quienes, como su nombre lo in-
dica, constituian un cuerpo que
se dedicaba voluntariamente a
reprimir el ansia libertaria de
los habitantes de la isla.
La historic narra que dias
antes del 27 de noviembre, la
ausencia de un professor des-
tinado a realizar practices con
un grupo de estudiantes en el
Cementerio Espada, provoc6
que algunos, mordidos por la
inactividad, se pusieran a ju-
gar con el carro funebre usado
para transportar los ataudes
dentro del cementerio. Se dice
tambien que uno de ellos tom6
una flor de la tumba del espa-
fiol Gonzalo Castan6n.
Castafi6n dirigia un peri6di-
co, "La Voz de Cuba", que se
caracterizaba por escritos que
denigraban la isla. Un periodis-
ta cubano, de apellido Reyes, le
desafi6 desde Cayo Hueso, y el
espaniol, airado, le ret6 a duelo
y se traslad6 con ese prop6sito


"Reconozco que soy un poco
culpable de lo que esta pasando
actualmente, pero consider que
