El destiny de Miguel Cabrera: El astro venezolano, ante
la imposibilidad de que los Marlins le paguen lo que vale, es
deseado por various equipos del Big Show. Es 16gico que quieran
un pelotero capaz de conseguir en cada temporada mas de
300 puntos de promedio al bate, superar los 30 jonrones y
las 100 impulsadas. Pero hay dudas con respect a la dis-
ciplina como atleta de este estelar jugador. Se piensa que si
no se concentra en mantener su peso, se va a convertir en
una calamidad defensive, sobre todo si se empefia en jugar
la tercera base. Por lo pronto tiene que rebajar unas cuantas
libras y concentrarse m&s en su profesi6n.

America Latina


Bolivia
El ex president boliviano Jorge Quiroga, jefe de la
mayor alianza opositora del pais, dijo hoy que el triunfo del
NO en el referendo de Venezuela "es el principio del fin" del
"regimen tirdnico" que, en su opinion, lidera el president
Hugo Chavez.
"El tirano no pudo, con todos los recursos, con toda la
plata", manifest Quiroga, quien gobern6 Bolivia entire 2001
y 2002, segun difundi6 EFE. Quiroga estuvo el pasado
fin de semana en Venezuela invitado por la oposici6n
como observador, aunque las autoridades electorales le
suspendieron ese status por emitir opinions sobre political
internal y hacer proselitismo por el NO. Tambi6n asegur6
que cuando era entrevistado por el canal Globovisi6n para
explicar lo que sucedia con el "Bloque del NO", una alta
autoridad, posiblemente un ministry, llam6 a ese medio
para decir que si "seguia hablando cerraban el canal". "El
sdbado no se puede hablar, (pero) 1l (Chavez) habl6 tres
horas, difundido por CNN a quienes tiene de tontos tiless,
agreg6 el ex gobernante de Bolivia, quien ha tenido various
roces con el president venezolano.

Venezuela
Los estudiantes venezolanos estallaron en j-bilo, con las
manos alzadas, al oir el boletin official que anunci6 el triunfo
del No en el referendum sobre una reform constitutional
que buscaba instaurar el socialismo y daba amplios poderes
al president Hugo Chavez. Los j6venes universitarios, que
lideraron el movimiento del No, entonaron sus consignas:
"6Qui6nes somos? Estudiantes, iQu6 queremos? "Libertad"
y cantaron a coro el himno national. Entre abrazos, los
dirigentes universitarios que se encontraban en la sede
del comando de campafia del No, desde donde siguieron el
informed official sobre los resultados del referendo, salieron
a la calle a encontrarse con un centenar de colegas que les
esperaban, resefi6 AFP. "Vamos a celebrar despuLs. Aqui no
hay ganadores ni perdedores, eso en Venezuela se acab6
hoy", dijo Ricardo Sanchez, president de la Federaci6n
de centros de estudiantes de la Universidad Central de
Venezuela, la mayor del pais; El movimiento estudiantil
emergi6 en mayo tras el cese de la televisora privada
opositora RCTV, en reclamo por los derechos ciudadanos.

Uruguay
Uruguay consider que el Mercosur "no funciona" y
que eso complica las negociaciones comerciales con la
Uni6n Europea (UE), manifest el director de Integraci6n
y Mercosur del Ministerio uruguayo de Relaciones
Exteriores, Carlos Amorin. El diplomttico uruguayo realize
esas reflexiones en una entrevista publicada hoy por el
matutino "Jltimas Noticias" de Montevideo, a pocos dias
de la Cumbre de Mandatarios del Mercosur prevista para
el 18 de diciembre en la capital uruguaya. En ese c6nclave,
Uruguay transferird a Argentina la presidencia semestral
del bloque. Al Mercosur -creado en 1991 por Argentina,
Brasil, Paraguay y Uruguay-, "hay gente que lo pinta de
negro y otra que lo muestra muy rosado. Tiene aspects
positives, pero no ha funcionado como se previ6", se lament
Amorin,, segin DPA. "La apuesta de Uruguay era tener
access a un mercado ampliado y eso, obviamente, no se ha
logrado, porque los intereses nacionales prevalecen y los
mercados siguen segmentados", argument. "El proyecto
de uni6n aduanera no funciona, no hay circulaci6n de
mercaderias y todo se rige con sistemas que estdn mds
cerca del funcionamiento de una zona de libre comercio
con trabas burocr&ticas de todo tipo. (...) Seguimos con
una agenda incumplida", se quej6.

Cuba
La nominaci6n del convaleciente lider cubano, Fidel
Castro, como candidate a diputado, abri6 las puertas para
su possible reelecci6n como maxima autoridad del pais el
pr6ximo afio. Fidel Castro, convaleciente de una grave
enfermedad, que le mantiene alejado del poder desde julio
del 2006, fue postulado por el municipio de Santiago de
Cuba en el marco del process de nominaciones que se
desarrollo ayer en Cuba para definir la lista de aspirantes
al Parlamento que se votara el pr6ximo 20 de enero. Su
nominaci6n no implica la renovaci6n automatica de su
mandate como maxima autoridad, pero su exclusion
hubiera supuesto su separaci6n del ejercicio del poder
formal del Estado despu6s de 50 afos.

Por: Arturo R. Rivera
Una vez mds el president
de Venezuela, Hugo Chavez,
utiliza el sistema democratic
para lograr cambios constitu-
cionales que llevan a la naci6n
venezolana hacia un gobiemo
autoritaiio y un poder uniper-
sonal en manos de Chavez. Re-
sulta contradictorio que se uti-
lice las libertades democriticas
para destruir precisamente ese
mismo sistema democratico.
Pero lo anterior no es nue-
vo en la historic de la humani-
dad. Adolfo Hitler impuso un
regimen totalitario utilizando
precisamente el voto en las ur-
nas y el sistema democratico.
Todo indica que Ch&vez utiliza
las mismas tActicas de Hitler,
'incluyendo turbas armadas
en las calls para silenciar
y amedrentar las fuerzas de
oposici6n.
Asi vimos-como en las alti-
mas semanas, para el refer6-
ndum que se celebr6 el 2 de
diciembre, las turbas de Chavez
aremetieron contra las protes-
tas de los estudiantes que fa-


vorecian el "no" para evitar la
enmienda a la Constituci6n.

Elecci6n cerrada
Al moment de escribir este
articulo, los venezolanos esta-
ban ejerciendo su derecho al
voto para decidir si se hacen
los cambios a la Constituci6n,
que entire otras cosas, per-
mitiria la reelecci6n indefini-
da de Chavez y se constituiria
el estado venezolano en uno
socialist: Sin embargo, por
primera vez las encuestas no
favorecen a Chavez para el
referendum y se anticipa una
elecci6n cerrada.

Por otro lado, Chavez, en
el cierre de la campaila para
el sidee la reform constitu-
cional, atac6 una vez mds al
Rey de Espafia por haberlo
mandado a callar en la Cum-
bre Iberoamericana. Chavez
sefial6 que "la finica manera
en que eso -se arregle es que
el Rey de Espafia ofrezca dis-
culpas por haber agredido al
jefe de Estado de Venezuela."


Tambi6n ChALvez amenaz6 con
nacionalizar los bancos espa-
fioles Santander y Bilbao Viz-
caya.

La unidad
Entretanto, la coalici6n de
partidos que rechaza la re-
forma constitutional advirti6
que Chavez tiene preparadas
cien eyes para instaurar un
socialismo "autoritario", en
caso de que la enmienda sea
aprobada en la consult.

Como hemos sefialado en
anteriores ocasiones, Chavez
no tan s6lo es un peligro a la
democracia venezolana, sino
para toda la region ameri-
cana. 1l no tan s61o pretend
dominar a toda-latinoambri-
ca, sino que tambi6n amen-
aza a los Estados Unidos
con suspender el suministro
de petr6leo a la naci6n si se
prestan para un plan de-
sestabilizador por el refer6n-
dum constitutional.
Esperamos que la democra-
cia prevalezca en Venezuela.


Al Pie de la Letra

Por Abel Ibarra


(viene de la pigina 1)
quien cuenta los pormenores
de lo ocurrido en la noche lar-
ga del 2 de diciembre donde
comenzamos a salir del tunel.
Si Chavez habia logrado una
debil imagen de dem6crata
con su discurso de la madru-
gada de las elecciones, en di-
cha rueda de prensa regres6 al
chiquero de su conciencia de
aut6crata cuando termin6 lla-
mando "mierda" al periodista
que revelo lo avieso de su con-
ducta y "mierda" a la victoria
misma de la oposici6n. Chavez
qued6 vuelto "idem" cuando
dijo, como el energuimeno que
es, que va a imponer por otras
vias la reform constitutional
derrotada en elecciones, de-
mostrando asi su verdadero
espiritu anti-democritico. El
corolario fue el "Patria, Social-
ismo o Muerte", coreado por
unos militares que le secund-


aron la cantinela televisiva.
Por ahora.
Sus aliados
Hemos logrado nuestro me-
jor aliado en las torpezas del
caudi-culillo. Las bravucona-
das que antes le sirvieron para
lograr el favor de uri gentio,
ahora han quedado como bal-
adronadas que s61o expresan
su propio miedo. Su discurso
agresivo para dar la sensaci6n
de invencibilidad, sus amena-
zas intentando paralizar .a la
gente, sus matones puestos a
perseguir estudiantes, los re-
cursos petroleros utilizados en
su favor abusivamente, cada
vez le sirven de menos. .
Lo malo son tres cosas:
Una, que est& arruinando al
pais. Dos, que los extremists
que propalaron la abstenci6n
y fracasaron como Oswaldo
Alvarez Paz, Herman Escarr&
y Patricia Poleo, ahora hacen


discursos para enturbiar el rio
y mantenerse en una carrera
de la que salieron descalifica-
dos por fatiga. Todos deberian
retirarse y dedicarse a criar a
sus nietos para la democra-
cia participativa, igualitaria y
abierta que debe surgir de esta
lucha. Y, tres, los extremists
como Alejandro Pefia Esclusa,
propaladores de guarimbas y
candelitas infantiles, que siem-
pre caen en eljuego de Chavez
dandole arguments para que
nos 11ame golpistas. Son los
talibanes de este lado que nos
hacen un gran dafio.
Hay tres derrotados:.
Chavez, los abstencionistas y
los extremists, que, por sus
posiciones intransigentes ter-
minan del mismo lado de la
historic.
La historic que ha comen-
.ado es la de la Libertad y la
Democracia. Vale.

ZEl principio del fin de Chavez?















iRik
-. II;
fr














Cualquiera que ve la foto piensa que Hugo Chavez esta reflexionando. La gente sensata
suele hacer balances de sus derrotas para enmendar los yerros y modificar las conductas
que la l1evaron al despeiiadero. Pero en el caso del president venezolano su cara es de
disgusto. El sudor que perla su frente es exudaci6n de la aniargura, porque un pueblo le
dijo No a sus intenciones totalitarias. Al oir su-discurso aceptando a regafiadientes que
fue vencido, uno se da cuenta de que no hay intenciones de rectificar. Por eso apela a lo
que cree una frase migica: el "por ahora" que lo catapult a la escena ptiblica al haberse
rendido luego de protagonizar un intent de golpe de estado fallido. El teniente coronel
golpista s6lo piensa en la revancha. Pero ahora esti pendiendo del hilo cada vez mis
debil de su ego enfermo y, el pueblo, con los estudiantes a la cabeza, apoyados por todas
las fuerzas political, defendidos por los militares institucionales, asistidos por.la raz6n
y bendecidos por la iglesia, le dieron un rotundo No a sus afanes de comunista trasno-
chado.

Nuevamente a las urnas venezolanas








PPor que GANO?


Por Teodoro Petkoff
&Por que fue derrotada la
reform? Porque una parte de
los electores de Chdvezvotaron
contra ella. Sin ese aporte,
mas la parte de ese mismo
electorado que se abstuvo, la
victoria no habria sido possible.
Esto significa que un sec-
tor del electorado chavista,
que no necesariamente ha
roto politicamente, todavia,
con su lider, va desarrollando,
sin embargo, una vision mas
critical, mas lucida y menos
ingenua acerca de su lideraz-
go y su comportamiento.
La ruptura de "Podemos"
y el rol fundamental jugado
por su lider, Ismael Garcia, en


la batalla contra la reform,
y la postura seria y corajuda
asumida por el general Raiul
Baduel, al mismo tiempo que
constituyen expresi6n de la
creciente lucidez critical frente
a Chavez, por sus partidarios,
potenciaron la actitud de los
chavistas "de a pie", llevindo-
los a votar No.
Este es el camino de la cre-
aci6n de una nueva mayoria en
el pais. Una nueva mayoria que
se ird conformando al calor del
deshielo que se produce en el
chavismo, lenta pero sosteni-
damente.
,Qu. otro factor influy6 en
la derrota de la reform? La
aparici6n, como actor politico,


del movimiento estudiantil.
Inexistente desde hace mas de
una decada, debido, entire otras
cosas, a la crisis de los parti-
dos, que fueron siempre sus
principles animadores, reapa-
rece ahora como movimiento
especificamente estudiantil, sin
inducci6n partidista (indepen-
dientemente de que algunos de
sus lideres tengan militancia), y
con creatividad y perspicacia
political fue capaz de ganarle
la calle al gobiemo y moralizar
y estimular a las filas oposito-
ras. Los partidos seguramente
aprendieron la lecci6n y ya esta
superada la epoca "leninista",
cuando aquellos confiscaban
los movimientos sociales, para

Domingo 2 de diciembre.
6 p.m.
Sufrimos el agobio de la
duda. Alguien, generalmente
bien informado, nos llam6
para decirnos que la absten-
ci6n era tan alta, que se abria
la posibilidad de.un triunfo de
Chavez en el referendo. Por
otro conduct nos informa-
mos de que Ia agencia Reuter,
en lo que despues result ser
un acto grave de irrespon-
sabilidad, habia anunciado al
mundo la victoria del SI.
6:30 p.m.
Me llamaron Luis Castro,
Polito, Marisela y otros herma-
nos desde Lecheria, Venezuela,
y les transmiti mis dudas lo
que, a pesar de todo, no los

Bolivia y Abel Ibarra de Tam-
pa.
7:00 p.m.
Joaquin Perez Rodriguez
me inform que por Gustavo
Tarre, Roberto Giusti, Felipe
Mujica y otros conductos, se
habia enterado de que estaba
apareciendo en los resultados
una s6lida tendencia a favor
del NO... Llame a mi sobrina
Gabriella Gruber a la Alcaldia
de El Hatillo y me confirm lo
dicho por Joaquinito.
7:15 p.m.
En una entrevista de TV con
Maria Elvira Salazar y Camilo
Egafia hable de la tendencia a
favor del NO, de la impostura
chavista al filtrar resultados
falsos y la ligereza de Reuter
al enviarlos al mundo.
7:45 p.m.
Ya no teniamos ninguna
duda que el NO habia ganado
con una ventaia entire cinco v


ocho puntos.
8:00 p.m.
El Consejo Nacional Elec-
toral (CNE) no da el primer
boletin sobre los resultados
electorales, que habia pro-
metido para esa hora... Co-
menz6 entonces una tensa y
peligrosa espera... En MEGA
TV, Beto Escalante, Carlos
Acosta, Vladimir Gessen y la
propia conductor Maria El-

por el sospechoso retardo del
CNE en dar los resultados.
El dirigente chavista Ricardo

era normal.

misi6n de sus intereses y
political.

Preservar la especificidad
del movimiento estudiantil
y respetarla es fundamental
para enfrentar los nuevos de-
safios. Los estudiantes son los
estudiantes y los partidos son
los partidos. Cada cual debe
tener su ambito.
Los partidos politicos han
sido factors de much peso
en el resultado final.
Imaginar que sin ellos este
esfuerzo habria podido ser
exitoso constitute una ilusi6n
6ptica. Fueron prudentes y


discretos, pero eficaces. Sin
ellos no habria habido testi-
gos en las mesas ni maqui-
naria electoral.
"Un Nuevo Tiempo", "Prim-
ero Justicia" y "Podemos" son
expresi6n de una nueva con-
cepci6n del partidismo. Tienen
una enorme tarea por delante
porque todavia son d6biles y
precarios pero cada vez me-
nos flacos.
En fin, vienen nuevas lu-
chas porque Ego Chdvez no ce-

tamos much mejor que ayer.

En Pocas Palabras
Abel Ibarra




Waste es el texto de un program de television
destinado a comentar el origen de las palabras
que conforman nuestro idioma espafiol. Es trans-
.mitido todos los mi6rcoles a las 11 p.m. por
Univisi6n Tampa, en el program Noticias 62.
A CAPELA
Hay t&rminos musicales que parecen un c6digo secret y
sin embargo tienen un significado con resonancias hist6ri-
cas. Unos de ellos es "A Capella" y hoy, En Pocas Palabras,
vamos a descubrir su origen y significado.
La Edad Media comienza con la caida del Imperio Ro-
mano, moment en que los cristianos emergen de las cata-
cumbas para difundir su fe en los innumerables templos
que construirian por el mundo.
Los romanos, discolos y ruidosos, realizaban ritos de
adoraci6n a sus dioses paganos, con destempladas cele-
braciones que acompafiaban con estridentes instruments
musicales.
Pero los cristianos, desde su recogimiento interior, canta-
ban "como en la capilla", es decir "A Capella", sin instrumen-
tos musicales, de la misma manera como los nifios solo
necesitan de su inocencia sagrada para comunicarse con
Dios.

El Sindrome del Panadero
Por Jos6 Luis Altet
El extranjero, inmigrante legal o illegal, no siempre es bien
recibido, sobre todo por aquellas personas que nunca han salido
de su terrufio y se sienten invadidas por la Ilegada de personas
extranjeras, o por aquellas que temen ser'suplantadas por una
mano de obra barata, o al contrario por una mano de obra muy
calificada. Un problema personal, que es la falta de autoestima,
se transform entonces en el problema de los extranjeros. "Los
extranjeros son gente sin educaci6n, hacen tales y tales cosas
malas, vienen a comerse el pan nuestro, vienen a aprovecharse
de nuestro sistema medico, del seguro social, en terminos mon-
etarios son una carga para el pais,..." Estas son las frases que se
usan generalmente para denigrar de los extranjeros.
El humorista frances Femand Raynaud ilustr6 el problema de
los inmigrantes de una manera sencilla y contundente ante los
franceses, pueblo conocido por su xenofobia.
Femand Raynaud cuenta la historic de un policia de la ad-
uana francesa que vive en un pueblito y que se jacta de ser in-
teligente, dado que es un agent de la aduana. A su pueblo lega
un extranjero, y luego su esposa y sus hijos. La gente del pueblo
los ignora, no los saluda, los rechaza con frialdad. Que vienen
a hacer estos extranjeros en este pueblo? Vienen a comerse el
pan de los franceses. Son pobres, estan mal vestidos, no hablan
bien el frances. Pasa el tiempo, pasan afios, y la gente del pueblo,
incluyendo el policia, siguen con la misma actitud de rechazo, de
enemistad. Hasta que un dia el extranjero se le acerca al policia
y le dice que ya esta harto, que el y su familiar han decidido
marcharse. El policia cuenta c6mo en el pueblo, despu6s de la
partida del extranjero, ya no se come pan.
El extranjero era el panadero del pueblo.
Este gran pais es un pais de inmigrantes. Ha sido construido
con el esfuerzo de todos ellos. Cabe preguntarse por qu6 hoy en
dia el tema de la inmigracion genera actitudes tan xen6fobas,
como las observadas en algunas comunidades. eSerd falta de
autoestima? Sera egoismo? 3Sera que a algunas personas
les duele mas el bolsillo que el corazon? eSerl que les fallan las
matematicas? Porque aqui, todos los que consume pagan im-
puestos: los consabidos sales' tax. Y estos impuestos son los que
permiten mantener a los Estados y pagar a los funcionarios. En-
tonces (Quien se come el pan de qui6n ?


Ciudad de 4.000 anfos
Arque6logos chinos excavaron lo que consideran una ciu-
dad de 4 mil 300 afios de antigiledad que podria ser la capital
de la mas vieja dinastia de China, inform el martes la prensa
estatal.
Los cientificos consideran que la ciudad pertenece a la cul-.
tura Liangzhu, que data de tiempos neoliticps, hace entire 4
mil y 5 mil 300 afios, afirmo el diario China Daily.
Las ruinas estAn ubicadas en la provincia oriental de Zhe-
jiang, segmn refleja la agencia AFP.
Hasta ahora los arque6logos han descubierto piezas de
barro y otras reliquias entire las murallas de la ciudad, que
miden de cuatro a seis metros de espesor, segnn la misma

La ciudad se extiende por tres kilometros cuadrados, es
decir, mis que la Ciudad Prohibida de Pekin.

Pusieron todos los recursos del Estado petrolero a disposici6n de la campafa del
teniente coronel golpista que nuevamente intent implantar un regimen de terror
en Venezuela. Amedrentaron a la gente con sus bandas armadas en el mis puro
estilo delas hordas hitlerianas. Invadieron las universidades con sus cuerpos poli-
ciales para callar la protest estudiantil. Obligaron a los funcionarios ptiblicos a
asistir a los pocos actos que pudieron realizar. Montaron una tarima para celebrar
un triunfo- que todas las encuestas les negaban. Inflaron un mufieco con la imagen
de Chavez, pero bastante mis pequefio qu.e su egolatria. Al final, el vacio de la der-

El canje humanitario en Colombia


El alto comisionado de
Paz de Colombia, Luis Car-
los Restrepo, reiter6 que la
mediaci6n del president de
Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, y la
senadora Piedad C6rdoba en
busca de un canje humanitario
con las FARC no serd reacti-
vada.
"No vemos condiciones para
reactivar la gesti6n de la se-
nadora Piedad C6rdoba o del
president Hugo Chavez. Por
parte de ellos se cometieron
muchos errors, y no vimos
nosotros ningin avance sus-
tantivo" en esa labor ante las
Fuerzas Armadas Revolucio-
narias de Colombia (FARC),
dijo Restrepo, explic6 AFP.
El funcionario afiadi6 que
tanto Chavez como C6rdoba
"siguen hacienda anuncios
publicos que nos asombran.
No vemos qu6 fundamento
tienen".
Insisti6 en que "pretender


en este moment abrir nue-
vamente la puerta a una
mediaci6n con el president
Chavez, cuando piblicamente
ofende al president de Co-
lombia (Alvaro Uribe), cuando
pfblicamente amenaza con
represalias econ6micas, no
tiene absolutamente ningfn
sentido".
S"Yo le pediria a la senadora
C6rdoba actuar tambi6n con
prudencia. No seguir mane-
jando esto a trav6s de los me-
dios de comunicaci6n", dijo el
alto comisionado para la Paz.
Con Francia "buscamos f6r-
mulas de tiempo atrAs y seguire-
mos haci6ndolo", y advirti6 que
"queremos poner en march
mecanismos eficaces, pero dis-
cretos", explic6 Restrepo.
Se trabajara "para lograr
una formula con las FARC sin
entrar en una dindmica de
medios de comunicaci6n que
nada nos conviene" y pidi6_


reservea" en lo conversado el
sabado entire Uribe y Nicolas
Sarkozy.
Pero aiadi6 que "ojald las
FARC est6n dispuestas a ello,
porque esa guerrilla se ha ne-
gado a tratar el tema de la lib-
eraci6n de secuestrados con
cualquiera de los facilitadores
internacionales, incluido el
president Chavez, con quien
nunca se habl6 de una f6rmu-
la en ese sentido".
Por otra parte, el maximo
lider de la guerrilla del Ejercito
de Liberaci6n Nacional (ELN),
Nicolas Rodriguez, asegur6 que
espera firmar un acuerdo base
con Uribe y formalizar asi una
negociaci6n de paz. Rodriguez,
alias "Gabino", dijo-que "en este
moment, para entrar en el
cese de hostilidades no nos lo-
calizamos (en zonas de concen-
traci6n), ni nos identificamos.
Asi se lo hemos hecho saber al
Presidente.


Intento de boicot a votaciones

venezolanas en el exterior


El voto de los venezolanos
en Miami se vio suspendido por
mas de una hora a causa de un
incendio en el edificio en el que
se ubica el Consulado venezo-
lano en la ciudad floridana. Los
bombers obligaron a la evacu-
aci6n del edificio y el c6nsul de
Venezuela en Miami, Antonio
Jose Hernmndez Borgo, sus-
pendi6 temporalmente la vo-
taci6n hasta que se resolviese
el problema ocasionado por
un cortocircuito, indic6 Efe.
Tras la intervenci6n de los
bombers en la plant 14 del
edificio donde se encuentra la
sede del consulado, cuyas ofi-
cinas no se han visto afectadas
por el incident, la votaci6n se'
reanud6. A media mafiana la
participaci6n en el referendo
sobre la reform a la Consti-
tuci6n era reducida. En Miami
estan inscritos 18.000 vene-
zolanos residents en Florida,
Georgia, Carolina del Sur y
Carolina del Norte.
En las afueras del edifi-
cio se manifestaron diversos
grupos a favor y en contra
del referendo."La afluencia
ha 'sido muy modest hasta
.ahora, estamos funcionando
con suficiente fluidez", afirm6
Hern~ndez Borgo. "Hay cierta
apatia", apunt6.
La escasa afluencia de los
votantes contrast con otros
process electorales, como el
referendo revocatorio al man-
dato de Chavez en 2004, cuan-
do sufragaron mAs de 14.000
personas y se necesitaba de
cinco a siete horas para emitir
el voto.
2.205 venezolanos estaban
registrados para votar en el
consulado de Nueva York. A
las puertas de la sede hubo
protests a favor del Si y del
No.

Excluyen reelecci6n

presidential en Bolivia


El vicepresidente boliviano
Alvaro Garcia Linera anunci6
que la propuesta de reelecci6n
presidential serd excluida del
proyecto de reform consti-
tucional, y se someterd a un
referendo popular por sepa-
rado, segn( el diario brasilefio
Folha de Sao Paulo.
"Nuestra propuesta es que (la
reelecci6n) este en un referendo
separado, y el texto constitu-
cional en otro bloque", asegur6
el vicepresidente, un soci6logo
manrxista de 45 afios, a un en-
viado del diario brasilefio a La
Paz, explic6 Efe.
Garcia Linera sostuvo que
"no nos apegamos al tema de
la reelecci6n. El problema no
es ese. No quieren la nueva
Carta Magna. Con la Consti-
tuci6n, si llegara la derecha al
Gobiero, por ejemplo, necesi-
taria de al menos 20 afios para
cambiar la ley de hidrocarbu-
ros y de tierras".
Adicionalmente, en cuatro
de los nueve departamentos
del pais se inici6 una huelga de
hambre "general e indefinida"
contra el gobierno de Morales,
al que sus dirigentes acusan
de imponer una Constituci6n
propia y violar los derechos


humans.
El Gobierno no formula co-
mentarios al respect, pero
Morales dijo la semana pasa-
da que las protests, iniciada
con un paro en seis departa-
mentos, apuntan a frenar sus
medidas populares de cambio y
evitar la abolici6n del modelo
neoliberal", asegur6 AP.
En Santa Cruz, princi-
pal reducto de la oposici6n a
Morales, decenas de vecinos
iniciaron el ayuno, segin in-
form6 Branko Marinkovic,
president del Comit6 Civico
de esa la region.
La huelga se extiende a
Beni, Pando y Tarija.
A su vez, cinco gobera-
dores de oposici6n viajaron a
las sedes de la OEA y la ONU
para poner una queja contra
el president Morales y pedir
garantes internacionales para
un dialogo sobre la nueva
Carta Magna que el Gobierno
quiere aprobar.
El Gobierno reiter6 que Bo-
livia tendrd el 14 de diciembre
nueva Constituci6n, con o sin
apoyo de la oposici6n, dijo

President de Asamblea Constituyente de Ecuad<


El president de la Asam-

"Vemos como el pueblo, en

dijo Acosta al canal Ecuavisa

"Pero podemos anotar que se

Acosta anot6 que el resul-

Noticias de Inmigraci6n
Director de Inmigracion de Catholic Charities
Por Jos6 Ferndndez

Sus Hijos Califican para la Ciudadania Automatica
Pregunta: Me llamo Rafael Restrepo y soy originario de Co-
lombia. Llevo viviendo mas de diez afios en los EE.UU. Hace
dos meses recibi mi ciudadania americana y estoy pensando
solicitarle la ciudadania a mis dos hijos, uno de 15 y el otro
de 17 afios de edad. Estos dos hijos recibieron su Residencia
Permanente junto conmigo y ya tienen mas de cinco afios con
6stas pero no son mayores de 18 afios y no pueden solicitar
la ciudadania americana, segmn tengo entendido. Pero tam-
bi6n me han informado que como yo ya tengo mi Ciudadania
Americana ellos dos califican para la ciudadania automatica.
No estoy seguro del process con Inmigraci6n para que mis
dos hijos puedan obtener sus ciudadanias lo antes possible.
Me podria informar sobre este procedimiento y el costo del
process.
Respuesta: Sefior Restrepo, efectivamente sus dos hijos
califican para la Ciudadania Americana y la raz6n por la que
que ellos califican es que la Ley de Inmigraci6n les da derecho
porque uno de los padres se ha hecho ciudadano americano
antes de que los hijos hayan cumplido los 18 afios de edad.
La Ley de Inmigraci6n no le require a sus hijos que sepan
ingles, para pasar el examen de historic y gobierno de los
EE.UU. o que tengan cierto tiempo residiendo en este pais
para calificar para la ciudadania automatica. Lo que si les
require es que sus hijos tengan la Residencia Permanente o
tengan status legal en el pais.
La informaci6n que necesita mandar a Inmigraci6n es el
formulario N-600 complete, 2 fotos tipo pasaporte, el acta
de nacimiento de su hijos, el acta de matrimonio, copia de
la ciudadania del padre y el giro por $255.00. Toda esta in-
formaci6n debe mandarla a la oficina local de Inmigraci6n.
)r Inmigraci6n se toma de seis a doce meses para procesar y
aprobar la Ciudadania Automitica para sus hijos.
Recuerde senior Restrepo que el trdmite de ciudadania auto-
mAtica para sus hijos es mas simple que algunos otros casos.
imine Por ejemplo, hay ciertos padres que se han hecho ciudadanos
lomia americanos pero estan divorciados y desean que sus hijos ob-
olano tengan la ciudadania automatica. En este caso, para que los
ador, hijos puedan calificar para la ciudadania automatica, el padre
u6 el ciudadano debe tener la custodia de los hijos para que estos
ie ser hijos se puedan beneficiary de la ciudadania automatica.

La familiar de la political co-
lombo francesa Ingrid Betan-
court, secuestrada por la guer-
rilla de las Fuerzas Armadas
Revolucionarias de Colombia
(FARC) desde 2002, se declar6
hoy esperanzada en el papel
que Francia pueda cumplir en
su liberaci6n.
"Francia puede tener un
rol bastante significativo (en
la liberaci6n de los secuestra-
dos) porque las FARC aceptan
y reconocen la mediaci6n del
gobierno frances y porque la
comunicaci6n entire el presi-
dente Nicolas Sarkozy y Alvaro
Uribe no se ha cortado", dijo
Astrid Betancourt, hermana
de la political.
En declaraciones desde
Caracas a la privada cadena
Caracol, la hermana de la ex
candidate presidential colom-
biana resalt6 las comunicacio-
nes entire los gobieros de Bo-
gota y Paris, incluyendo una
carta de Sarkozy a Uribe y una
conversaci6n telef6nica entire
ambos, difundi6 AFP.
Betancourt tambi6n destac6


el papel de mediador jugado
por el president Hugo Chavez,
hasta hace dos semanas en
procura de un canje en Colom-
bia de unos 45 rehenes por 500
rebeldes press de las FARC.
"El gobierno de Colombia
no ha querido mirar todo lo
avanzado (hacia el canje) por
el president Chavez y por la
(tambi6n ex mediadora) sena-
dora Piedad C6rdoba. Cuando
el comisionado se niega a mi-
rar esos avances es cerrar los
ojos", afiadi6 Betancourt.
El gobierno colombiano di-
vulg6 el jueves pruebas de vida
de 16 de los 45 rehenes en ma-
nos de las FARC, entire ellos Be-
tancourt, tres estadounidenses
y decenas de politicos, policies
y militares colombianos.
Uribe suspendi6 abrup-
tamente el 22 de noviembre
la mediaci6n de Chavez, que
habia comenzado en agosto,

La Casa Blanca y la reform
El rechazo del proyecto de modificaciones a la Constituci6n
Nacional (CN) en el pais, que habria dado mAs poderes al presi-
dente Hugo Chavez, rival de Estados Unidos en America La-
tina, es un "buen augurio", afirm6 hoy la Casa Blanca, en una
primera reacci6n tras el referendo de ayer.
"Es como si la gente dijera lo que pensaba y vot6 en contra
de las reforms que recomend6 Hugo Chavez y pienso que. es
un buen augurio", declare a la prensa Dana Perino, portavoz
de la Casa Blanca.
El viernes, la misma vocera habia expresado su preocupa-
ci6n de que los venezolanos no pudieran tener un referendo
justo y libre", al tiempo que dijo que los manifestantes que
marcharon en contra de la reform constitutional en las flti-
mas semanas tenian "buenos motives de no estar contentss,
resef16 AFP.

La amenaza irani
El gobierno britinico sigue considerando la amenaza po-
tencial del program at6mico irani como "muy seria", dijo hoy
el portavoz del primer ministry Gordon Brown en Londres, en
reacci6n al informed de los servicios secrets estadounidenses
que asegura que ha disminuido ese peligro.
"El informed muestra tambien que el intent de que Iran quiera
fabricar armamento at6mico aun esta ahi y que ese riesgo afun
constitute un problema muy grave".
El gobierno britanico consider, sin embargo, que las san-
ciones internacionales y la presi6n contra Irdn ya-tuvieron al-
gunos efectos, resefi6 Dpa.
El informed publicado el lunes en Washington asegura que
los servicios secrets estadounidenses creen que el gobierno de
TeherAn esta "menos decidido" a producer un arsenal nuclear
y que Iran interrumpi6 su program de armamento at6mico
en 2003 y hasta mediados de este afio no lo habia retomado,
principalmente por la creciente presi6n y vigilancia internacio-
nal. Sin embargo, deja abiertas todas las opciones.

Bush: venezolanos

votaron por democracia
El president de Estados Unidos, George W. Bush, dijo hoy
que el pueblo venezolano ha rechazado "el gobierno uniper-
sonal" al decir "no" en lasurnas a la reform constitutional
impulsada por el mandatario de Venezuela, Hugo Chavez.
En una rueda de prensa en la Casa Blanca, Bush sefial6
que los venezolanos "votaron en favor de la democracia" el 2
de diciembre, cuando se opusieron por un estrecho margen a
los cambios constitucionales planteados.
"El pueblo venezolano ha rechazado el gobierno uniperson-
al", remarc6 Bush. La reform planteaba eliminar los actu-
ales limits a la reelecci6n de los presidents venezolanos, lo
que hubiera significado que Chavez podria haber concurrido
a unas nuevas elecciones despues de que en el 2013 concluya
su actual mandate.
Por su parte, la embajada de Venezuela acus6 a Estados
Unidos de tener un doublee estandar" y s61o valorar el sistema
electoral venezolano si los resultados en las urnas son acordes
con la political exterior estadounidense.
Antes del referendo funcionarios estadounidenses habian
puesto en duda el buen funcionamiento del sistema electoral
del pais sudamericano, pero "expresaron su jibilo" cuando se
supo el resultado, sefial6 la Embajada.
En su intervenci6n, Bush tambien dijo que su pais puede
reducir la influencia de Chavez en Sudamerica con la apro-
baci6n del tratado de libre comercio con Colombia, que estd
pendiente de ratificaci6n en el Congreso.

para las celebraciones, ya que se encontraba de viaje en Jor-
dania, como parte de una gira por el mundo irabe tras la
conferencia de paz realizada la semana pasada en Annapolis,
Estados Unidos, inform AP.
En la conferencia, Abbas y el primer ministry israeli Ehud
Olmert prometieron alcanzar un acuerdo de paz en 2008.
Mientras los autobuses que transportaban a los press
llegaban al complejo amurallado de Abbas, los familiares se
acercaban corriendo para besarlos. Algunos saltaron por las
ventanillas, desesperados por saludar a su familiar.
Israel mantiene a unos nueve mil press. Su libertad es
una de las principles demands palestinas, y la liberaci6n
de ayer -la tercera desde julio pasado buscaba apuntalar a
Abbas en su contienda con el grupo de milicianos islAmicos
Hamas, que control la Franja de Gaza.

La storia dei Re Magi
Le figure dei Re Magi por-
tatori di doni e primi esseri
umani a riconoscere la divin-
ita di Gesu, sono una delle
tradizioni legate al Natale pi
note e sentite.
Diversamente rispetto ad
altre figure che popolano il
period natalizio, come la
Befana o-Babbo Natale, I Magi
hanno caratteristiche legate
pifi profondamente alla tra-
dizione cristiana, e come San
Nicola fondano le propria ma-
trice cultural all'interno di un
quadro storico passato.
Nella narrazione "storica" e
nell'interpretazione di diverse
culture, i tre viandanti si dice
fossero degli astrologhi persiani
che avevano colto, leggendo il
cielo, i segnali dell'arrivo di
un Dio in Terra. Second la
leggenda si narra che i Re Magi
si fossero incamminati verso


Betlemme per onorare, e per
essere i primi a omaggiare la
venuta di una divinity fra gli
uomini.
Molto probabilmente
questa associazione dei Magi
allo scrutare il cielo e legata
all'esistenza, nell'ultimo peri-
odo dell'impero persiano, dei
magoi i re-sacerdoti di Zoro-
astro. Il fatto che la religion
e la tradizione cultural dei
Re Magi fosse quella persiana,
rende questi personaggi impor-
tantissimi per il riconoscimen-
to della divinity di Gesl come
portatore della luce divina di
un dio unico, non solo si pensa
che l'identificazione dei Magi
con i sacerdoti persiani abbia
fatto di Gesth la prima divinity
riconosciuta dai sacerdoti di
Zoroatro.
Sostanzialmente i Re Magi
con il viaggio da loro compiuto,
sono una trasposizione di


quella che poi sarebbe stata la
mission di Gesu sulla Terra,
di riunire sotto un unico cielo
le varie derive pagane o polit-
eiste.
I Magi diventano quindi i por-
tatori di'un messaggio di fede
molto profondo. L'iconografia
classic oramai vede i Re Magi
come tre re filosofi che arrivano
dalle tre parti del mondo allora
conosciute: l'Africa, 1'Asia e
1'Europa, essi sono infatti un
riero, un bianco e un arabo
(Gaspare, Melchiorre e Baldas-
sarre), quale miglior simbologia
per rappresentare la forza della
spinta di una nuova religion
emergente che voleva unificare
i popoli sotto un unico mes-
saggio di fede? I vangelo di
Matteo 6 poi l'unico a narrare
di questa vicenda, e la man-
canza di fonti relative al pas-
sato hanno spinto l'esegesi
storico-culturale a creare dei


distinguo fra quelli che fu-
rono i fatti di origine storica,
e la fantasia.
Ormai la version piu dif-
fusa e che il racconto dei Re
Magi sia una specie di favola
con morale, utile a compren-
dere la necessity di riunire
le popolazioni sotto un'unica
identity cultural attraverso
un process di coinvolgimento
della fede.
Nella tradizione cattolica
italiana poi l'adorazione dei
Magi avviene con la dodicesima
notte del Natale e coincide
con 1'Epifania, mentre in altre
tradizioni viene festeggiata la
notte stessa di Natale. Se in
Spagna, ad esempio, i bambini
scrivono letter ai Re Magi
come per il nordico Babbo
Natale, in Italia invece questi
personaggi fanno solo parte
di un ciclo di avvenimenti
che si ricordano nella storia


del Natale.
Significativo poi come per
la nostra cultural questi per-
sonaggi vengano festeggiati lo
stesso giorno dell'epifania e
quindi della Befana, la dodices-
ima notte del period che sta
a cavallo fra la fine dell'anno e
l'inizio di un.nuovo raccolto.
La tradizione sistema quindi
questi personaggi in un mo-
mento fertile delle vicende
umane, si dice anche che la
tradizione dei focolari del sei
gennaio si tramandi perched
erano i fuochi accesi per il-
luminare il cammino di questi
viandanti. La tradizione cris-
tiana lega anche il personaggio
della befana ad avvenimenti
legati al loro cammino verso
Betlemme.
Alcuni racconti dicono che
i Magi fossero meno forse solo
due, altri di piii, ne vengono
indicate addirittura dodici,
come poi furono gli apostoli; la
definitive identificazioni in tre
avventori, rimanda ovviamente
alla radice "magica" e signifi-
cativa di questo numero,oltre
che alla trade dei doni: oro
per la regalita, incenso per il
sacerdozio e mirra, che rap-
presentava l'espiazione dei
peccati.

nal Casablanca
dance events she
ran at the Cen-
tro Asturiano de
Tampa in the ear-
ly 1990s. Or, per-
haps you know
her for her 10
years of dedicat-
ed service to the
Ybor City Cham-
ber of Commerce
as its events co-
ordinator or for
the numerous
Ybor City civic
associations to
which she volun-
teers her time.
Unfortunate-
ly, no one knows
Anna Ramos for
what may be her
greatest accom-
plishment in Ybor
City. It is entirely
possible that no
one has ever run
from one side of "I feel luc
Ybor City to the for Ybor (
next faster than
she once did.
"I remember when I was 8
years old, on Ninth Avenue and
19th Street there was an ice
cream shop," smiled Ramos.
"The owners lived above it and
they made the best homemade
ice cream. I remember one day
my father asking me if I wanted
him to get me an ice cream
'cone. I asked for chocolate but
he brought me back vanilla.
"Well, I was so mad," contin-
ued Ramos, her. smile turning
into laughter. "So I threw the
cone at him and said I don't
want it. He started running
after me and I ran all through
Seventh Avenue, out ran him
and hid in Demi's Market until
I thought it was safe to go back
into the street."
Unfortunately, no one had a
stop watch handy, so whether
or not she truly has the record
will never be known.
Today, Ramos can still be
seen racing around Ybor City.
As the Ybor City Chamber of
Commerce events coordinator,
she rarely has time to slow
down. She coordinate's the
chamber's monthly luncheon,
two or three business expos
a year, the Cesar Gonzmart
Awards Dinner and Gala, the
chamber's P.M. networking
events, and more.
"That's why I love this job,"
said Ramos. "I am a real people
person and I am always talk-
ing with people. I love when
tourists come to the chamber
office and I can take them
outside and tell them all about
Ybor City and its history and
how best to enjoy their visit
to Ybor. This job is perfect for
me because two of my favorite
activities are talking to people
and promoting Ybor City."
Ramos is a perfect represen-
tative for Ybor City, as there
has never been a point in her
life in which she has not been
a part of the historic district's
daily life.
Ramos was born in Ybor
City and raised in a casita on
Eighth Avenue between 18th
and 19th streets along with her

famous memories may be of
Anna Ramos' record-breaking

THE STORYTELLER
by Andrea Brunais

On the Lookout in Lawtey, Waldo


I'm sure this has happened
to you: You think about some-
thing, plan for it, keep it top-of-
the-mind and yet you make
the misstep.
Before I left West Virginia to
drive to Florida, my husband
cautioned me about the police
hiding out alongside US 301
between I-10 and 1-75. As I
started down US 301, I re-
membered his words. I thought
about the famous Waldo speed
trap and AAA Auto. Club's
protest. AAA's four billboards
posted north and south of
Lawtey and Waldo warned
motorists of the trap.
Approaching Lawtey, some
20 miles north of Waldo, I ob-


served how every 100 yards or
so the speed limit dropped by
10 mph, from 65 to 55 to 45. At
the 45 mph marker, I settled in
behind a semi, then decided I
didn't want to be stuck breath-
ing his fumes. So I pulled into
the left lane to pass him as we
both headed for the red light,
along with many other cars
and trucks.
Boom. That's when the
speed-trap cop du jour spotted
my out-of-state tag (front and
back) on my brand-new white
Scion. He also saw a way to
add $163 to the Lawtey police-
department budget.
Mind you, I haven't had
a ticket since the $20 I paid


while a student at USF. [ am
not a speeder. I had just spent
10 hours on the road going at
or under the posted speed lim-
its. In Lawtey, I was in a com-
mercial district on a four-lane
highway it wasn't a residential
area or a school zone. I was
approaching a red light. I was
definitely not hauling a--!
The National Motorists As-
sociation and speedtrap.org put
Waldo and Lawtey high on their
"worst speed trap" lists.
Although Florida is notori-
ous for small-town speed traps,
speeding offenses in other
states can bring on even more
dire consequences. Terry Gala-
noy of AOL Autos writes:


Happy Birthday Angelina Scaglione


"
C
r:
.ui
)r' dl



j


"Although Forbes Magazine
reports that the national me-
dian for a first-time offender's
fine is $200, many states
are quite entrepreneurial in
their penalties for first-time
speeding-related offenses. In
Georgia, first-time speeders
can be fined up to $1,000 and
sentenced to 12 months in jail.
In Nevada, first-time speeders-
can be fined up to $1,000 and
sentenced to six months in
jail. In 14 other states, rang-
ing from Iowa to Wyoming,
jail time for first speed-related
offenders can range up to 90
days, while a number of other
states call for possible 10-day
incarcerations."
But things could get worse
in Florida. Here's the assess-
ment of H. Lee Moffitt, who as
you know is the former house
speaker. He has worked on
legislative issues for AAA Auto
Club South:
"AAA has been fighting
these speed traps in Waldo
and Lawtey for many years
but never could get the legis-
lature to pass alaw stopping
the practice. What makes this
even worse, with the economic
downturn this hurts tourism
even more, and we are con-
cerned that other little cities
like Waldo and Lawtey-may
consider setting up speed traps
to generate more money for the
city. They may also do this with
cameras for running red lights
and speeding. This is all easy


money for local governments
and the camera companies. It's
too bad that hiring a lawyer to
fight a traffic ticket costs more
than paying the ticket. If
people would mobilize against
these small towns filling their
coffers at out-of-towners' ex-
pense, perhaps the practice
would stop..In some years,
traffic fines have become a
profit center for these towns,
funding more than 100 per-
cent of their police-depart-
ment budgets!"
Along with my ticket came
a helpful slick full-color sheet
in which Lawtey Chief of Police
M.M. "Butch" Jordan advises
that the state of Florida av-
erages 686 crashes per day,
some fatal.
But is a nonspeeder in a
Scion passing a truck on the
way to a red light the culprit?
According to the National
HighwayTraffic Safety Admin-
istration, 40 percent of traffic
deaths in the United States
are related to alcohol-con-
sumption. In Florida, drunken
driving causes more than
1,000 traffic deaths each year.
Florida has the third-high-
est number of alcohol-related
deaths, following only Califor-
nia and Texas.
If ol' Butch were intent on
preventing deaths, wouldn't
Lawtey be operating DUI pa-
trols instead of speed traps?

and Muslim religious days with
official school holiday status.
Instead, the district is supposed
to allow students time off for
worship during those recognized
days as an excused absence. The
district went so far as to say that
taking those days off should not
be a hardship to those children,
therefore tests should not be
scheduled on those days, neither
should events such as proms and
homecomings.
The interpretation of this policy
varies widely depending on which
administrator you talk to. Some
are instructing teachers that
they should introduce no new
materials, lessons or any tests
on these days. Others are being
told they should only avoid major
tests. Some are told they should
base their modifications to their
lesson plans on the number of
students absent from their classes
for the religious day. Others say
they should recognize those days
even if no students in their class
or school practice that particular
religion.
There are currently 11 of these
days on the school calendar, but
that is likely to grow. We are con-
cerned if teachers aren't allowed
to teach new material on these
11 days. There are too few days
of good classroom time to waste
11 or more paying a teacher not
to teach.
The School Board should make
it a priority to clearly define how.
these religious days are to be
handled district-wide before this
policy turns ugly.

Each of the historic clubs wants
you to spend New Year's Eve with
them.
The Cuban Club has South
Town Fever performing, along

machines, open bar, free valet
parking, hors d'oeuvres, party
favors, champagne toast and a
breakfast buffet. Admission is
$125 per person. Call 248-2954.

The Italian Club has Johnny

Delia Sanchez received a birth-
day greeting Tuesday from a sur-
prise well-wisher. She was called
by Nobel Peace Prize recipient
Muhammad Yunus, who was in
Ecuador with her son Frank San-
chez. Sanchez is escorting Yunus
in Ecuador on behalf of the Patel
Foundation so he can speak on his
micro-credit program that earned
him the peace prize. Micro-credit
is a fascinating tool to help people
out of poverty by making small
loans available to the poor. Gra-
meen Bank under Yunus' guidance
has lent $5.72 billion to $6.61 mil-
lion borrowers. Loans as low as $9
have helped beggars buy goods for
resale, turning the beggars into
merchants. Giving Bangladeshi
women $27 loans to buy straw
to make stools allow them some
financial independence in a coun-
try where it's frowned upon. The
loans not only bring hope to the


poor, they bring dignity. The bank
claims a 98 percent repayment
rate, better than most U.S. banks
who judge a person only by a com-
puter-generated credit rating and
not by their character.

Michelle Obama, wife of Demo-
cratic presidential candidate

SCriminals, angry husbands and
wives and victims seeking revenge
aren't the only dangers in Hills-
borough County courtrooms.
Last week in Judge Robert
Foster's court a piece of the ceiling
fell on Assistant State Attorney
Chinwe Fossett. She was not hurt,
but this week in honor or perhaps
fear of the incident, construction
hats were handed out in Foster's
court.
The problem last week was
caused by construction equipment
being moved on the floor above
the courtroom in the old annex
building.

Hillsborough Community Col-
lege celebrated its 40th anni-
versary by honoring 40 of its

demonstrated that community
colleges serve a valuable role in

of a university in no way inhibits
how far you go in life.
Some of the honorees are: Judge

Club Fuel, which many believe
is a bane to Ybor City, is closed for
business, but for how long? Some
insiders at Club Fuel say it's for
good. The club's landlord, Joel
Brewer, says it's temporary, that
the club is under renovation and
it will reopen soon. According to
the city's Tax Division, Club Fuel
is changing its name to Factory
Nightclub.
Its closing has made Ybor a
safer place. We hope its demise is
permanent.

We have decided to go ahead
and make our endorsements in
the Florida Presidential Primary,
which will take place on January
29.
First the Republicans. We know
who we will not endorse Rudy
Giuliani. It's not because we
think he'd be too hard to beat for
the Democrats. He's the only one
out of all the Republicans and
Democrats running who scares us,


and that's saying a lot. Giuliani
would run this country through
fear and intimidation. Everyday
he would remind us of terrorism
as he taps our phones, searches
our homes and pats us down. We
believe he would have America
trade its freedom for a false sense
of security. Well, that's who we
don't like.
We do have a lot of admiration
and respect for John McCain. We
watched the debates and saw only
one Republican candidate who
will say what he believes is right
even if it's to the detriment of his
campaign.
His position on immigration is
one that. deals with people, not
pandering, and it has cost him in
the eyes of those who would blame
America's problems on undocu-
mented poor families trying to
make a better life for themselves.
Sure, he'll build the wall, but he
knows that's only for show. We
must deal with the 12 million un-
documented workers in America
and the future farm labor needs
of this country. McCain will not
only follow the law, he'll follow
his heart.
We could not be further apart
on the war. We'd pull out tomor-
row, while he'd stay for the long
run. We can respect his position
because unlike the rest of the
GOP lineup he doesn't want to
maintain the status quo, which is
to perpetuate failure, instead he
wants more troops on the ground,
a faster pace reconstruction-and
commitment to victory. We don't
think it can be done, but ifAmer-
ica won't get out at least it should
play to win.
McCain offers an intangible
quality that is missing from the
modern politician. He has an
intellectual and spiritual under-
standing of what makes America
great. Its'vhy he won't berate an.
illegal kid trying to get a college
education. It's why he won't con-
done torture of our enemies. It's
why he won't force the Bible into
our schools. McCain knows one
of America's greatest strengths
comes from our ability to extend
our sense of justice in how we
handle those we don't agree with
immigrants, criminals and our
enemies. America must return
to its moral high ground. These
are the reasons La Gaceta en-
dorses John McCain in the
Republican Presidential Pri-
mary.
On the Democratic side we
like most of the field and would
be happy with John Edwards,
Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton,


Christopher Dodd or Joe Biden
as the nominee, although we are
worried about Senator Clinton's
changes-to win the White House.
Our favorite, and it's been this
way for months, is Governor
Bill Richardson. His resume is
impeccable secretary of energy,
congressman, U.S. ambassador
to the U.N., governor of Mexico
and nominee for the Nobel Peace
Prize. He offers what the rest of
Sthe Democrats can't he has ex-
ecutive experience and Americans
have voiced a preference over the
last three decades of electing a
governor. Gov. Richardson offers
to return America to a force of
good on the world stage. He knows
the world not only is questioning
our leadership and its motives,
but it's now questioning what's in
the heart of the average American.
If this continues, America will
lose and become a more frequent.
victim of terrorism here and
abroad.
He is candid with his com-
mitment to end the war in Iraq
quickly and orderly. We couldn't
agree more.
His Latin background will
help bring compassion into the
immigration debate and give
Hispanics comfort as he secures
the borders.
-The economy needs a Demo-
crat's hand. The GOP says it's-
fiscally conservative but the last
seven years has seen the great-
est government expansion since
WWII, runaway deficit spending,
corporate giveaways to Hallibur-
ton and a host of other corporate
friends of the Bushes, a shrinking
dollar and America becoming a
debtor nation so hooked on foreign
loans that we make Mexico blush.
-Richardson has shown the disci-
pline to run a state on a budget
and he'll bring commonsense back
to the White House.
Rihardson has an affinity for
the common man. He's one of us.
He has an independent streak, is
unafraid to say what he means'
and understands the American
dream. He's knowledgeable, pre-
pared and practical. Many on the
Democratic side are reading the
polls before they speak. Richard-
son offers candor and vision.
La Gaceta endorses Bill Rich-
ardson for the Florida Demo-
cratic Presidential Primary.

Free Parking
In an effort to help the Ybor
merchants during this holiday
season, Tampa Mayor Pam
Iorio has suspended parking
meter fees between the hours
of 11:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. in
Ybor City for the month of
December. The new "free"
parking took effect December
1 and continue through De-
cember 31. Both the Fernando
Noriega/Palm Avenue Parking
Garage and the Centro Ybor
Garage will not be affected by
the suspended rates as all fees
will remain the same.
This latest initiative is de-
signed to encourage residents
to frequent the historic district

business in the district.

lose approximately $21,000
in revenue from the on-street
meters and metered parking
lots combined.

The Other Necessary

Ingredient for the Outdoors


Going hunting or fishing?
Are you sure you have gathered
all the necessary accouter-
ments for your comfort and
pleasure? How about one or
more loaves of Cuban bread?
On our way to Georgia,
South Carolina, Alabama,
north Florida or other hunting
venues, we invariably make
certain last minute stops be-
fore we leave town. We add fuel
to our vehicle's tanks to carry
us on our sometimes long jour-
neys. Ice is obtained to sustain
our victuals on the way to our
some times remote destina-
tions and oh, yes we always
purchase several loaves of our
unique Cuban bread.
Cuban bread, at least in
this writer's opinion, is a mis-
nomer. The long loaves of
uniquely delicious bread can
only be found in Tampa. This
is Tampa bread because not
in Cuba, Miami, New Orleans,
Spain, France nor Italy can
bread of this particular con-
sistency be found.
The so called Cuban bread
produced in Miami, a city that
is considered by most just an
extension of Cuba, is mostly
a thin crumbling crust sur-
rounding huge air cavities.
Upon biting into the Miami
version a shower of crumbs
normally takes place, covering
several square feet surround-
ing the consumer.
All the other versions lo-
cally purchased in "American"
stores and supermarkets are
poor imitations of the Tampa
version. Loaves obtained in
those markets are generally
extremely hard, too skinny or
too short and the flavor and
aroma of our wonderful Tampa
bread when heated is totally
non existent.
We use Tampa bread for
breakfast, hot and buttered.
Fried or grilled venison sau-
sage with sauteed onions and
green peppers has no better
friend than a chunk of Tampa


bread. And as a companion to
Italian sauce, the absorbent
inside portion of Tampa bread'
has no equal as an edible
sponge. As an additional bo-
nus, when our Tampa bread
becomes hardened with the
passage of time we grate the
leftover pieces into the finest
bread crumbs ever. With the
freshly grated crumbs we coat
our venison Palomilla steaks,
meat balls or meat loaves.
Mauricio Faedo's Bakery at
5051 North Florida Avenue in
Tampa has been one of our last
stops when leaving town on
hunting excursions. They are
always open. Not only do we
obtain our Tampa bread there
but we have observed the bak-
ers kneading the dough, insert-
ing the traditional palm frond
strips on them and placing
them in the oven. If our timing
is right we obtain the loves hot,
in which case we must always
buy extras for immediate con-
sumption as we drive.
La Segunda Central is an-
other local bakery where We
usually stop for bread, meat
or guava turnovers. Their
pastries, cookies and bread
are of uniquely consistent
quality and they gladly fill spe-
cial order items such as their
inimitable pizza trays. Some
of the employees that work at
La Segunda have been there
for more than 30 years. It is
always a pleasure to exchange
pleasantries with them as we
wait for our orders.
Our friends in South Caro-
lina developed such a fondness
for our Tampa bread, turn-
overs, Cuban coffee and other
of our unique bakery products
that our trips always include

Onmce Upovni a T eilre
by Travis Puterbaugh


"Losing to the Bucs would
be a disgrace." New Orleans
Saints quarterback Archie Man-
ning
Last Sunday, the Tampa
Bay Buccaneers went on the
road and knocked off the New
Orleans Saints to inch one
step closer to a division cham-
pionship. Thirty years ago
this month as the Buccaneers
traveled to New Orleans, the
nearly 2-year-old franchise
found itself winless through 26
games. Suffice it to say, they
needed no extra motivation as
they sought their first victory.
Nonetheless, the quarterback
of the Saints who by the late'
1970s had yet to enjoy a win-
ning season served up his
gem for the Buccaneers to use
as bulletin-board fodder.
The 'Aints were in the midst
of another disappointing cam-
paign when the Buccaneers
rolled into the Superdome
for an afternoon game on De-
cember 11, 1977. After four
straight weeks of tough, re-
spectable outings by the Buc-
caneer defense, Manning's
comment struck a nerve with
Coach John McKay and his
proud defenders. A mediocre
quarterback's quip appeared
to provide whatever spark was
lacking in every previous game
played by the fledgling Tampa
Bay franchise.
Defensive end Lee Roy Sel-
mon, an eventual Pro Football
Hall of Fame inductee who
would tally three sacks in the
game, rattled Manning early
with a punishing hit that sent
the signal-caller sprawling to
the synthetic turf. The Tampa
Bay defense ruled the day,
recording five sacks, six in-
terceptions and scoring three
touchdowns en route to the
biggest and first win in the
history of the franchise, a 33-
14 laugher.
Not only was the point to-
tal more than half the Bucs'
output for the entire season,
but the 33 points symbolized
almost two years' worth of
frustration. The Bucs didn't
merely squeeze out a close win
by a couple of points -- they
won a road. game in a decisive
fashion, leaving no doubt their
darkest days were over.
It's clear from the reaction
after the game that Manning's
jab had an impact on the


Buccaneers, and they weren't
about to let him forget it. Lee Roy
Selmon's loquacious brother,
linebacker Dewey Selmon, of-
fered several bon mots in the
Bucs'locker room, from "(Man-
ning) has his disgrace now and
he can sit on it," to "It's a case
of respect. When a man says
that, it's like ... well, it's like
somebody has been talking bad
about your momma."
A jubilant McKay agreed
with Manning's comment, after
all: "He said it would be a dis-
grace to lose to us, and, it is."
As many had warned for
months, losing to the Bucs
would result in a shame and
indignity no team wanted to ac-
cept. General managers, coaches
and players long had referred
to Tampa Bay, without a hint of
irony, as the most feared team
in the league. Frustrated.Buc-
caneers, such as running back
Anthony Davis,-bemoaned that
opponents played every game
as if it were the Super Bowl
to avoid being "the first." Gil
Brandt, an executive for the
Dallis Cowboys, remarked
that when Tampa Bay wins a
game, "it's going to be a terrible
thing to the team that loses. ...
The publicity and the reaction
of the fans around that city will
really be something."
Unfortunately for New Or-
leans, the one thing worse
than being a city with an 0-26
team is a city whose squad al-
lows that team its first victory.
What followed in the Big Easy
was expected and appropri-
ate. Saints coach Hank Stram,
later enshrined in the Hall of
Fame for his earlier coach-
ing prowess with the Dallas
Texans/Kansas City Chiefs,
earned a dubious distinction
on that December day -- he
was the first coach in history
to explain a regular season loss
to Tampa Bay. Stram called it
his lowest feeling as a head
coach and that his team was
"strangled by the trauma," as
he expressed embarrassment
on behalf of the organization
and its fans.
New Orleans States-Item
sportswriter Peter Finney
compared the Saints' loss to
historic disasters, such as a
1737 earthquake in India that
killed 300,000. "Keep this in
mind," he wrote, "when you
contemplate the score Tampa


Bay 33, New Orleans 14." In
his monologue while serving
as guest host on The Tonight
Show, Bill CbsbPdirected the
laughs, for a change; to a dif-
ferent port city. ",Shame is
falling on New Orleans," Cosby
said. "There'll be no Mardi
Gras. No crawfish. No bread
pudding. Let us all hear it for
Tampa Bay."
The fallout from the game
sent shockwaves across Amer-
ica. When the final score was
announced in stadiums from
Los Angeles to Foxboro, Mass.,
fans erupted with cheers and
standing ovations. The White
House even issued an official
reaction, comparing President
Carter's "underdog status" to
the trials and tribulations of
the Buccaneers.
It was in Tampa, however,
where 'the reaction was the
loudest and most heartfelt.
The scene outside the team's
headquarters near the airport
reflected the relief and joy felt
by the community. While the
Bucs' marching band provided
the soundtrack, the team's
cheerleaders the Swashbuck-
lers danced for the enthusi-
astic crowd on the roof of the
Airport-1esort Hotel. A-throng
of more than 8,00.'eagerly
anticipated the team's return
from New Orleans and braved
cold weather. Then, shortly be-
fore 9 p.m., pandemonium en-
sued as the team buses arrived.
Long the symbol of the
franchise's.ineptitude and
failure, on this night McKay
became the mainobject of the
crowd's adoration. Ever the
showman, he climbed atop a
car to address the fans. Dur-
ing an impromptu speech in
which he tweaked his sup-
posed lack of humility, McKay
deemed the Bucs' inaugural
triumph the "greatest win in
the history of the world." To the
thousands surrounding him,
McKay proclaimed, "There's
never been a better defensive
player than Lee Roy Selmon!"
The crowd cheered loudly as
he continued: "There's never
been a better nose guard than
Dave Pear!"
Buccaneer fans again roared
their approval,, and the noise
reached a crescendo when
McKay said, "And there's never
been a better head coach than
John McKay!"

Thoughts and Memories of My Cuz' Paul


By Ferdie Pacheco
Paul was the son of Uncle
Paul, the black sheep of the
Jimenez clan, but the clown,
and favorite of all the Jimenez
clan. He was the first stand-up
comic of Tampa. Everything
was ajoke to him. His convoluted
stories filled with comic twists
and turns were magic to hear.
For a long while he ran the
garage my grandfather built
for him next to his Big House
(1019 Columbus Drive: It's still
there, in good shape).NOTHING
ever held him down to one job
for very long. The last thing I
remember him doing was driv-
ing a cab (there weren't many
in Ybor- nobody could afford
them- especially'when street-
cars could take you anywhere
in Ybor for a nickel).
Uncle Paul was kinda shad-
owy around the Big House.
It seemed he was always in
trouble with the Old Man, Gus-
tavo, and the Spanish Consul.
He was the highest point of
society. All his children had
big success in life. Lola was the
head cashier of the Columbia,
an important job. Ferdie and
Gus were running Bonacher
Bros Food, and were destined
to buy the company and be-
come millionaires. The family
in Mexico was Pan Grande's
(Big Shots) millionaires in the
trucking business in Monter-
rey. My mother, Chelo, mar-
ried very well my father J.B.
Pacheco was from a famous
family, and was a successful
pharmacist.
So, what to make of Uncle
Paul, who seemed to court


failure and seek life with the
lower class? What's to become
of him? No matter how hard his
father tried to back him in busi-
ness, Paul managed to wreck it.
He had NO ambition.
Uncle Paul married "be-
neath him," according to the
family. He was shunned. Paul
responded by taking his family
to N.Y.C. He disappeared. Lord
knows how he survived. Poor
Paul. He never EVER learned
to speak English. New York, in
those days, was hard on people
who.couldn't speak English. He
lived with Puerto Ricans, the
lowest rung of the immigrants'
ladder. He was pure Spanish,
but he lived in the depths of
the Puerto Rican Ghetto. He
went from the highest to the
lowest; he'd married a very
sweet, beautiful Puerto Rican
girl. She had a little son, which
Paul named, Paul of course.
She developed tuberculosis,
and, in those days there was
no cure, so she died leaving
Paul to manage with their little
son. A daunting task. In the
summer public schools closed
in NYC. What to do with" little
Paul? Paul had NO home life.
Who would watch him while
Uncle Paul worked?
My mother, Chelo, a woman
with a Big Heart and a STRONG
sense of family said, "Send him
down to us, well take care of
him from June til September
when school started."
My brother Joseph and I
were happy as hell to have a
NEW playmate. After all Lil'
Paul was my age, so I was
getting another brother. In


those days, I actually liked my
brother Joe.
He came, in rags. He didn't
have many DUDS. Chelo dug in
and started sewing. Boy, could
she sew. Soon Paul looked like
us, well dressed little kids. He
looked bewildered by his good
fortune. He had new clothes,
many new toys and friends to
play with, all the food he could-
stuff down (and boy, could he
EAT).
He also brought something
BIZARRE and NEW to us. He
brought intestinal parasites:
Worms.
One fine afternoon, play-
ing outside in the-back alley,
Paul said he had to go to the
bathroom, RIGHT away. He
dropped his pants and squat-
ted, my brother and I watched
in amazement. We had never
seen a bowel movement hap-
pen. Suddenly, we yelled! A
snake was coming out of his
ass. It was long and glistening
white. We hit it with a rock
and took it to my mother,
who picked up the phone and
called Dad at the Drug Store.
He brought home a bunch of
black pills, and cleaned Paul
out. Little Paul was NOT em-
barrassed, for he had worms
for as long as he could remem-
ber. He was happy to be rid of
them at last.

ved him because he was laughed with us.
nocent and naive. We This became a routine for'
l a lot of jokes on him. many years. Lil Paul was our

lay. But there was no clearly remember the joy his
y.meant. Just good old arrival caused Joseph and I. He
ent fun. Paul always took was family, and welcomed.
.-He never cried, but he Big Paul married another
Puerto Rican woman. She
was sweet and very nice, she
*worked steady, which solved
things financially. We moved
to 1806 Lamar, a big two-story
house in Tampa Heights. By
this time Paul was 12 or 13,
and we had many more ddven-
turous things to do. We had a
good gang of kids, and Paul fit
in, as he always did. By that
ro i rs" time he reported in participat-
Providering in gang wars in NY.
He was very good looking,
like his dad who had been a
Killer Diller Ladies man. He
was a good athlete, and very
0- daring, willing to try anything,
so easy to get to fall for one
Sof our contrived traps. In my
book, "Ybor City Chronicles,"
I have a whole chapter on Cuz
Paul and the horrible jokes we
played on him. After I wrote it,
I read it: I felt BAD.
He was a good sport. He
never ran home crying. He
laughed and came back to the
gang to keep on playing. All
of my friends liked Paul, and
-m every summer we were sad to
Ssee him go back home with a
nice benevolent mother. Paul,
I think, was happy with the
arrangement.
The last time I saw Paul was
memorable. I was 14, working
q* o- the summer as a waiter in the
SColumbia Restaurant. Boy
was I proud and happy. I was
doing a grown man's job, nine
hours a day, six days a week.
My salary was suppose to be:
$28 a week, but when my dad
* saw the check, he took it from
me, went back to the liquor
S store, and handed it back to
Lawrence, the owner, and his
close friend.
"What are you trying to do,
spoil my boy?"
"He works just like a man,
he gets paid like a man," said
an aghast Lawrence.
"He is a boy. A 14 year old
boy. He gets paid like a boy.
One dollar a day. Plus tips!"
It took me 10 minutes to
figure out I was going to make
* a fortune going out to the cafe
and spreading the story. All the
customers were J.B.'s friends.
They lavishly over tipped me.
I got RICH THAT summer! I
didn't tell my Dad.
The best was when Law-


rence, the next day, called me
into the liquor store. He handed
me a $50 bill. "Here, Ferdie.
take this $50 to your Aunt Lola
at the main register and tell her
I want 10 $5 bills for change.
"Yes sir!" I said and went fly-
ing to the front to give my Aunt
Lola the bill.
When I handed Lawrence the
10 $5 bills, he looked at me in
surprise..
"What's this?" he asked, as
if he had never seen the money
before. "You boys see me give
Ferdie any money today?"
Frank Alingo, my dad's good
friend, "Nope"
Dr. Rosenthal, the crooked
dentist, "Nope"
"Better put it in your pocket.
The streets are filled with ma-
rauders."
I came to my house that day,
after a hard day's work, and
to my great surprise there sat
Paul on the rocking chair on
the porch. At least, I thought,
it was Paul.
He looked more grown up
than me. At least he was trying
to look older than me. For one
thing, he had a moustache.
What? I thought couldn't be.
Never happen. Then I looked
again.
The moustache was painted
on with eyebrow pencil, as
were' his eyebrows: He had a
mountain of hair, well oiled and
combed like Clark Gable.
This he told me was because
he lied and got a job as a BAR-
TENDER at the Waldorf Astoria
bar in New York! His pockets
bulged with money. Was it
true? I never found out. I took
him with me horseback riding.
I was pretty good, I could ride.
SPaul had never ridden, but be-
ing Paul, he would NOT ADMIT
IT. He wanted to ride the horse
with me. He acted as if he were
a champion rider.
What happened to Paul is
best described in DETAIL in my
book, "Ybor City Chronicles".
It's hilarious and all true. Get
the book and read it. It was a
fitting end to our relationship.
I never heard from him again.
I figured someone would show
him the book and I would hear
from him.
But, I never did. I loved Paul;
he was really more of a brother
to me than Joseph. I wish I
could have stayed close. I'd
love to hear his wild tales. He
was really the Huck Finn of my
childhood days.
P.S. Joseph died about five
years ago, a millionaire! Go
Know.

Alfonsina Storni: Mito


Por Leonardo Venta
"Voy a dormir, nodriza mia,
acuestame.
Ponme una Idmpara a la ca-
becera;
una constelaci6n, la que te
guste;
todas son buenas..."

Se cuenta que en la ciu-
dad de San Juan, Argentina,
un dia de 1898, una nifia de
6 afios sali6 corriendo con un
libro escolar entire sus manos
que sustrajera de un comer-
cio. Pasados los afios, aquella
pequefia, ya con un admirable
nombre literario, Alfonsina
Storni, l1amaba al objeto de su
hurto "lo pirateado".
A muy corta edad Alfonsina
se calza las chinelas de la poe-
sia. "A los doce afios escribo
mi primer verso [...] Hablo
con 1l de cementerios, de mi
muerte. Lo doblo cuidadosa-
mente y lo dejo debajo del ve-
lador, para que mi madre lo


lea antes de acostarse...".
El diario "La Capital", de
Rosario, promueve un con-
curso literario en el que Al-
fonsina, a los 11 afios, se pre-
senta con un poema que fue
rechazado y que contiene un
trazo biografico significativo
para haber sido escrito a esa
corta edad: "Y por las calls,
yo, la miserable, / fui con el
sucio libro sobre el pecho. /
Era la hora en que las otras
nifias / entraban al colegio /
con sus trajes azules, con sus
libros / limpios y nuevos".
Ya joven maestra, Alfon-
sina sostiene la pesada nube
de madre soltera en un cielo
en que los hijos ilegitimos eran
anatemas. El hombre que la
sedujo, mayor que ella, la con-
dujo a una relaci6n sobre la
que ella prefiriO nunca hablar.
Alfonsina renuncia a su em-
pleo de maestra y se instala en
Buenos Aires. "En su maleta
traia pobre y escasa ropa,


o Realidad
unos libros de Dario y sus
versos", rememora su hijo
Alejandro. Un afio despues
de nacido 6ste, public sus
primeros trabajos en la revista
"Caras y Caretas".
Su primer libro fue La in-
quietud del rosal (1916), una
colecci6n de versos. A merced
de esta publicaci6n, Alfonsina
comienza a frecuentar los cir-
culos literarios masculinos. Le
sigue un segundo libro de po-
emas, en 1918, El dulce dafro,
de gran intensidad poetica.
Despues se sucedieron vi-
vencias para la poeta en aquel
Buenos Aires de la primera
mitad del siglo XX, y con ellas;
poemas como aquel de "TM me
quieres alba, me quieres de
espumas, me quieres de na-
car", en el que reprueba el es-
tereotipo de la fragil pasividad
de la mujer.
Su iltimo libro fue Masca-
rilla y Trebol (1938), en el que
reformula su poesia y la de su


Gobierno intransigente en Bolivia


El vicepresidente de Boliv-
ia, Alvaro Garcia Linera, ase-
guro que ese pais tendrA una
nueva Carta Magna con o sin
la oposici6n el 14 de diciem-
bre, dia tope que la Asam-
blea Constituyente tiene para
aprobar el nuevo texto consti-
tucional, en declaraciones de
television.
"El 14 de diciembre tiene
que haber un texto con su
aprobaci6n en detalle y ojald
sea con-la firm de los 255
constituyentes. El Gobierno
quiere pactar con las minorias.
Sin embargo, solo se negocia
con la otra parte si esta tiene
voluntad", dijo Garcia Linera
a la red estatal de television,
la noche de ayer.
La nueva Carta Magna fue
aprobada en primera instan-
cia el 24 de noviembre en Su-


cre en una sesi6n borrascosa,
en un liceo military y sin la
oposici6n, en medio de violen-
tos disturbios que se saldaron
con tres muertos y decenas de
heridos, divulge AFP.
A pesar de esos actos de
violencia, el Congreso autoriz6-
poco despues a la directive de
la Asamblea Constituyente a
sesionar en cualquier lugar
de Bolivia para cumplir con el
tiempo legal, aunque afin no
ha reanudado sus sesiones.
La oposici6n acusa a Morales
de aprobar una Carta Magna a
su media y para "perpetuarse
en el poder" con la reelecci6n
indefinida, uno de las princi-
pales cambios con relaci6n a la
actual Constituci6n.
"Estamos esperando a las
fuerzas opositoras para dia-
logar y aprobar el texto con-


stitucional. Las convocamos
para dialogar y pactar, pero
todo tiene un limited senten-
ci6 el vicepresidente aunque
dijo que tiene la esperanza de
que "cambien de estrategia".
A su juicio "es normal que
una nueva Constituyente se
realice en medio de conflicts
y tensions" y que el caso bo-
liviano es particular porque
ha "tenido una conformaci6n
pluralista", lo que explica sus
adversidades.
Las declaraciones del vice-
presidente se produce horas
despues de una reuni6n del
jefe de Estado con los asam-
bleistas de su partido en la
que se anunci6 que el texto
final de la nueva Carta Mag-
na sera aprobada el filtimo
dia del plazo legal, el 14 de
diciembre.


6poca. En un entomo en que
la mujer estaba maniatada in-
telectualmente, Alfonsina de-
safi6 valientemente al poder
patriarcal con su pensamiento
aut6nomo. Asimismo, se de-
bati6 en la busqueda de su
propia identidad como mujer
y escritora. A estas luchas,
como si fueran pocas, se les
unieron las batallas contra el
cancer de la mama y el desa-
mor.
En la madrugada del 25
de octubre de 1938, la gran
escritora, invalida de amor y
esperanzas, sali6 de su casa,
sola, para no regresar. En su
habitaci6n habia dejado una
temblorosa nota de despedi-
da. Ese mismo dia al aman-
ecer, dos j6venes notaron flo-
tando sobre la superficie de la
playa La Perla el cuerpo inerte
de una mujer. Se dice que so-


bre la escollera fue hallado un
zapato. Sin duda pertenecia
a Alfonsina, nuestra amada
musa americana.
A la Storni, como le Ila-
maba Horacio Quiroga, se le
recuerda como una criatura
casi deidad que baja al fondo
apacible de las aguas. Tam-
bi6n se habla sobre su 6pica
inmolaci6n por amor. Sin
embargo, la ensayista- Mari-
lyn Bobes nos sugiere, en su
pr6logo a la antologia Alfon-
sina Storni Entre el largo de-
sierto y el mar, a adentrarnos
en la figure de los libros y no
en la de las leyendas. eCual
premiere usted, estimado lec-
tor: la Alfonsina de una reali-
dad poco po6tica o la sublimi-
zada por la imaginaci6n? Yo
me quedo mejor con el mito.

Reforzada

constituci6n venezolana
Militantes de Primero Justicia (PJ) se reunieron hoy con ob-
servadores intemacionales para evaluar el proceso de referendo
para la reform constitutional.
El eurodiputado Jose Silva Peneda consider que la refor-
ma contribuiria a fracturar mas a la sociedad venezolana. "La
derrota de ayer demuestra que la actual Constituci6n ha sido
reforzada".
"La ciudadanos decidieron ante dos alternatives: o una so-
ciedad colectivista o una sociedad libre y democratica.
Destac6 que la campafia se manej6 en circunstancias muy
dificiles, y dijo estar content por los resultados de ayer (re-
chazo a la reforma.
El coordinator national de la tolda aurinegra, Julio Borges,
record que no hubo veedores extranjeros en este process,
aunque se permiti6 invitar a un grupo reducido a participar.
Celebr6 la reivindicaci6n del voto en el pais. "Llevamos afios
en la autodestrucci6n no s61o del sufragio, sino de la vida elec-
toral en el pais".
"El domigo, a pesar de la altisima abstenci6n, la gente vot6
y logr6 derrotar al gobiemo. Se logr6 derrotar democrAtica-
mente a un sistema no democrdtico".
En segundo lugar, estima que se reivindic6 al pueblo,
porque fue el pueblo el que acudi6 a las urnas. "Evitamos que
Venezuela cayera en un proyecto que destrozara nuestros va-
lores y nuestras referencias".
Para Borges la meta es ahora reconstruir a un pais que estd
fracturado.
